We've all seen some of those other sites; their 'blog' started about six weeks ago and has maybe 12 posts. 

Well, they've to start somewhere...


Here at the CoinMine, we've been analyzing things in quite a bit of detail for the past nineteen years; and we've been

spot-on more than a random roll of the dice would indicate. Since 2000!  Browse below through a few hundred pages of observations, picks, calls, diatribes, rants, and raves and mine your own nuggets.


SPOTLIGHT ON:  The mercury Mewl - The Internet's Favorite Demi-god



1.15.22     Great Start of the Year for Coin Values

Many dealers reporting very strong collector interest at FUN show in Florida.


PCGS Reports record demand for dealers and collectors certifying coins:




12.28.21     Amazing How Many Long US Financial Trends are Still Intact


Coins, Metals, Crypto, quality land and real estate, US Dollar.


How about US Bonds? Now *that* is the interesting question!


Look at the long term (5yr) charts. US 20 year treasuries (Proxy: TLT) have held long term support whereas US Corporate high-yield bonds (Proxy: JNK) have been below both their

100 and 200 Day EMA since 2014.


JNK and TLT last traded at par in 2008.


Interestingly JNK broke below the 200 Day EMA last month.


My take: US Bond bear and US equity bull continue until TLT breaks support and/or JNK holds 50 day EMA AND the Dow, SPY, IWM all fall below their 50 day EMA

and stay below for 3 consecutive days. Confirmation of one of those two signals will cause me to go from long to neutral (hedges and cash). Confirmation of both will cause

me to add hedges and short more heavily.

The Fed’s Doomsday Prophet Has a Dire Warning About Where We’re Headed - POLITICO


12.27.21     Coin Prices Continue to Appreciate




12.27.21     CDC says Covid Vaccines are Safe - but some are no longer allowed due to serious health effects


But then states J&J vaccine linked to fatal blood clots:



Of course, Denmark already suspended J&J use and five countries have also limited or halted Moderna use:



11.18.21     Etrade merged into Morgan Stanley


And *poof* just like that the FDIC insurance drops from $1,250,000 to $500,000 per account.


That's hardly a ringing endorsement of, well, anything!


9.24.21     Interesting to Watch China Implode their Economy

Another disastrous week of blunders and missteps. Free market forces will always school inept autocrats - they get what they deserve.


9.19.21     The Fed is neutral? Yar!


Fact is, as this story just scratches the surface (more like makes excuses) the fed is comprised of crooked banksters inside dealing and making money for themselves off inside information, all while destroying our currency and economy/


Same as it ever was...

9.14.21     Many Equity Stocks and Indices are at 50 Day Moving Average Support

Tomorrow could get interesting


9.8.21     Yes, Of course NIH funded Whuhan Gain of Function Virus Research

Wuhan lab documents show Fauci 'untruthful' about research: critics (nypost.com)


9.8.21     Why Did we Leave Afghanistan?


Our mission was complete - build and infrastructure so that the Chinese could mine it (payment as a vassal for our debt to the ChiCom):

9.8.21     The Unholy Marriage of Digital Currency and Negative Interest Rates


Your masters are arranging for your servitude in this arrangement, planning is well underway:


Digital Currencies Pave Way for Deeply Negative Interest Rates - WSJ


Every single carbon digit they allocate to you (according to your social score).


9.8.21     Back From Vacation (I love vacation)


6.15.21     US Government 'Explores' Digital Only Currency



And the very same day Warren calls the private, inaugural, exclusive version a 'scam'

Senator Warren calls Bitcoin a 'scam', threatens more regulation; Alex Mashinsky says she's wrong | Kitco News


Pretty obvious where this is going - only the government can have the digital currency - everything else is 'illegal'.


6.4.21     Biden Shuts Down State Department Inquiry into Origins of Wuhan Flu

Biden team shut down inquiry to prove lab link to COVID: report (nypost.com)


No doubt they easily pieced together the pieces. Fauci emails obtained by Freedom of Information Act showed that US NIH funded covid research in Wuhan.


So, then must arrive:


Biden Orders New Inquiry into Origins of Wuhan Flu

Biden Orders Intelligence Inquiry Into Origins of the Coronavirus - The New York Times (nytimes.com)


This will be the cover up ‘inquiry’.


Same as it ever was…



6.1.21     Amazon Wants You To Pay with the Mark On Your Hand


Coming soon to your neighborhood store. Can’t use cash, can’t write a check, you know what is coming - some day will be mandatory…


6.1.21     When Cash is Illegal – Mandatory Digital Currency


You Digital Master:

·        -  Health Passport

·         - Social Credit Score

·         - Financial Value

·         - Proof of Vaccines

·         - Carbon Credits


Without these you will not travel. Eventually, without these, you will not eat.


Danes present digital coronavirus passport for travel abroad (yahoo.com)


Even – and especially – your money will be created online. The same masters that create the digits will watch (at first) how you spend each precious one. Tracked. Every Time.

Currently US firms import oil and pay with dollars, one reason the greenback carries the nickname petro dollar. The Mideast and OPEC must use those dollars to buy US Treasury securities, helping to keep the Fed interest rates low. Same with goods and stuffs –we import from China and pay for them with dollars – and they hate this. ChiComs would rather not finance the US debt, but currently they have no choice.


China envies the digital crypt coins and currency games and are diligently influencing into their sphere of control. The Peoples Republic desires that their central bank digital currency (CBDC) enters the market first and dominates, benefitting from some enforced notion of legitimacy. Well, they certainly hope it performs better than their vaccination.

Oh sure, there is competition. The mega digital monitoring companies want the same absolute control. Remember when facebook delivered their vision of a crypto currency backed by a basket of other international digital entries (via Bank of International Settlements). They have struggled getting ahead of the game – even with their large consortium of partners and have already renamed the currency once, now known as Diem.

The Digital Dragon (still just a worthless remminbi or yuan) might be an official state bank electronic credit, but still the same old yuan on the books. Only the color/format/symbols change. The major element which remains is the overriding desire of the communist party to monitor your every day purchase, financial and travel history and every other sordid and mundane of your life as the lowly consumer of last resort.


6.1.21     Collector Commodities are Hot Hot Hot



This matches our recent experience, never waited so long for NGC to turn around a grading submittal...


6.1.21     WHO report Shown as Another Pack of Lies

Fact: Wuhan laboratory workers became sick and required hospitalization before China divulged Covid problem (e.g. yep, it came from the lab where they had been working on the virus, as previously well-documented).

Even the propaganda machine can’t hide bury the facts any longer:

CDC that first stated citizens should NOT wear masks to prevent coronavirus (which was completely inline with previous studies on the subject)?

Why trust them again, or now?

5.7.12    Interesting Economic News Today


The 'recovery' story faded with new unemployment numbers coming in higher while jobs created came in lower.

That isn't supposed to occur in April, much less at the start of a vaunted economic recovery.


Though, what I found most fascinating - for the first time records have been kept California actually lost population...


4.14.21     On Ford - Nailed the (short term?) High to the DAY!

May be another trading opportunity shaping up...


4.14.21     Myriad problems with ‘forgiving’ student loans 


Transfer of Wealth

Nothing is forgiven. The moneyed class simply transfer debt, in exchange for votes, from those that will not pay their debts to the producing citizenry in the form of higher taxes and inflation.


Moral Hazard

Doesn’t fix the problem. Colleges and banks know they’ll get bailed out again = charge same (or more), starting the problem all over again.


Money will go to those upper middle/rich parents that are actually paying off the student loans on behalf of their failing children instead of those most deserving: the poor, aged or infirmed that should get targeted relief, if it should happen at all.


Government is picking the winners and loser. A better solution – the one which built our country is to cut taxes, let the people decide their own fate if they want to win or lose in life


Bottom line, your overlords plan on conducting a colonoscopy through your wallet without sedatives – they will allow you the courtesy of watching the procedure unfold in slow motion.

Already the government used the pandemic as an artificial excuse to introduce coinage shortages.

Fact check: Yes, there's a national coin shortage. Here's why (msn.com)


The next virus will be an excuse to remove 'contaminated' paper currency from circulation.


No, at first you wont be a criminal for using cash - it just won't be available (nor will merchants accept your cash).


Then the optional is made mandatory. Same as always...


2.4.21     The Long Term Plan - Negative Rates for All

Bank of England Tells Banks to Negative Interest Rates - The New York Times (nytimes.com)


Negative Rates punish the savers = forced spending and forced reliance on welfare programs (further government control)

Negative Rages punish capital = preference for handouts and social programs


and of course, Negative Rates force cash out of the system = force the carbon credit system on everyone


1.21.21     Numbers

11.19.20     Day 191 of Lockdown

The government experts told us, for the first couple months of lockdown, that masks were ineffective against covid so there was no need to purchase any. Of course, that gave them time to stock

up their own stash, and then mandated the major online retailers (e.g. EBAY, AMZN remove the supply for purchase).


At that point the government experts told us - oh, masks do work but there are no high quality N-95 masks for you - instead make a 'face covering' out of a sock or something.


What the actual scientific data shows, in line with previous studies on influenza, is that masks are essentially ineffective:

8.31.20     Lack of Gun Violence

Those actively attempting to dismantle the US Constitution 2nd amendment like to throw out a red herring about gun violence.


Fact is, homicide by gun has been declining for decades:



Homicide by gun is not even in the top thirty of most likely causes of death in the US anymore:



The good news is there has been a dearth of multiple death shootings this year. The last big mass gun homicide shooting in Vegas was almost three years ago now. Once attempts at

curbing 2nd amendment rights fail in the congress these incidents decrease, as the realization gun legislation is not supported by the citizen majority.


The bad news is that after elections, when a legislative body increases or decreases in numbers, the shooting again start back up in an effort to emotionalize the issue in yet another legislation attempt.

In other words, mass shootings should begin to increase after November...

6.12.20     Day 92 of Lockdown

Many businesses and services have partially re-opened. Some are never coming back, at least like they were before.


Of the three scenarios I presented on lockdown Day 8 - here is where we've entered:


Scenario C (35% chance): Extreme flu over 120-300 days, major breakdown in systems. Shallow depression. Mostly moderate social disturbances but significant in some locales.


Unfortunately, since we entered Scenario C fully (and too a T, nice predictive scenarios TheCoinMiner!) the odds of scenario D continue to rise. Get prepared...

Group action lawsuit against for written lies in his hiring materials that promised employment into November despite his flash in the pan self-immolation.




Frankly, after Bloomberg running content-and ethically-challenged propagnda operation for decades now, anyone that believes the gasbag deserves what they get.


3.20.20     Day Eight of Lockdown

Many folks have been asking my thoughts on how this plays out.


Scenario A (15% chance): Preventative measures work and Wuhan flu burns out in 30-60 days. Mild recession.


Scenario B (35% chance): Preventative measures help, but flu continues for 60-120 days. Minor pockets of social disturbance. Deep recession.


Scenario C (35% chance): Extreme flu over 120-300 days, major breakdown in systems. Shallow depression. Mostly moderate social disturbances but significant in some locales.


Scenario D (15% chance): The cold war that had been heating up into cyber and economic warfare brings pandemics as just another engineered attack, first of possibly several waves.

Deep depression with significant regional warfare. 10-12 years before long waves bottom out.


Interesting observation on timeline. Though Schumpeter waves have displayed known compressing action; it appears that the long term Krondatieff waves

– in relative history – may now be exhibiting the same recent compression. This current Primary I down cycle possibly exhausting before a likely Primary 5 wave in 10-12 years.


3.16.20     The Carona Virus = Chinese Bio Engineered Weapon



3.14.20     Day two of lockdown. Woke this morning and had hoped market crash and pandemic were just a dream – not so lucky.


3.13.20     Day one of Wuhan Flu lockdown (looking at 30).

Kept the kids from going out yesterday evening or to school day and we canceled a ski trip (the resort ended up closing anyway!).

Later in the day the school district announced a two week closure (and two more for spring break).


2.28.20     Wuhan Virus Plans

A Solano County resident may indicate as the first person to evidence wuhan flu from community contact.




"Its possible the It's "possible" that the individual "may have been exposed to a returned traveler who was infected,"


he he he...

The government purposely imported wuhan-infected people from China, flew them to Travis Air Force Base in Solano County, and then failed to properly protect

the community from the virus, these are basic facts: 




We've outsourced most other production to China, may as wel outsource our biologic warfare development.


Pandemics are planned to take money out of circulation and put the world on a credit only system.

Of course, the article didn't mention that Newsome has made multiple political appointments in other agencies down to the staff level but had left

the Resources Agency completely intact. Absolute shoddy reporting by the LA times, as usual.

4.16.19     Collapse of Notre Dame's Roof - Collapse of France

The collapsing roof perfectly symbolizes the collapse of France under Macron and the EU; a bungle of incompetence as much as design.


Notre Dame is a pinnacle of French culture - the white Christian Male - that built and maintained western civilization for centuries.


The goal of the international communist - to dismantle western civilization and Christianity - mostly evolves through incompetence thought they occasionally luck out

aided by an exceptionally low informed generation of voters and leaders.


The positive sign is the mass riots in the streets by working and lower classes, joined by students, massing against the emasculation of multiculturalism forced by the European Union and inane regulations

such as the carbon tax. Mayhaps the French have finally woken and will preserve their culture and nation. Then again, may have been intentionally set to diffuse the yellow jacket anti-carbon tax protests; another false flag designed to unite the plebes for all the wrong reasons...

7.11.18 Gold Made my Price Target

Could still go lower, but I like some of the technical's so bought back some of the GLD I sold in May. [Note: GLD @118.4 on 7.11.18; @4.2%]

5.30.18     Looks like Gold is trying to make a 4th wave top here

2.16.18 Bought SBUX for short term trade (sell just under 60?)


3.6.18     Sold RIG

Up about 3.5% in two weeks is a worthwhile exit.

2.8.18     Sold Edwards Life Sciences EW

This position up over 14% in 10 months, didn't want to give back any more profit...


4.28.17     Bought Edwards Life Sciences (EW)

Paid high, hopefully sell higher (should be a longer term trade/hold). Good relative strength on a California firm. Sure, it's expensive (real expensive). But you have to put the money somewhere (and many sectors look expensive right now). Just bought a bunch of coins, maybe buy more?


2.8.18     Sold SH (short SPY ETF)

Made over 4% in just a few days on a large position. Expecting the plunge protection team will try to rally equities on this declining volume.

that anyone is surprised that Big Spin functions as a democrat political arm, but the fact that NBC is willing to donate live time to Kamala Harris at the expense of several other announced candidates

Of course it will take a disaster to re-open the government. Most folks remain aghast at how ineffective the government remains. Moreover, more than 800,000 employees are out of work

yet this many people doing nothing does not impact the vast majority of americans. Indeed, nothing seems to have changed, hardly anyone notices what those 800,000 actually do on the job.

Hence, what good are they?


A disaster, of the government's making (e.g. terrorism or illness outbreak) will require daddy government to solve the problem = voila! See how important the government is after all...

5pm: Cook for dinner guests

Play cards w family and guests

Write daily accomplishments


Fri 12.28.18

6 am Exercise

Develop new code for website

Play Risk with Fam

Write daily accomplishments


After each item is accomplished, I highlight in italic to show completed (rather than erase completely).

This calendar list now becomes a running calendar log of everything completed in a day or week.


This written record provides value in a few ways:

  • - firstly it shows where you've been so you know where you are going;

  • - helps keep on track with long term goals; helps time estimating and time management; and

  • - should it ever become unfortunately necessary - proves invaluable documentation in a contractual or legal dispute.

7.21.18     San Francisco a ‘green city’? Har!

SF produces essentially none of its own power or water in the city. Instead it destroyed a native village and damned one of the most beautiful valleys in north america and installed a massive unsustainable infrastructure that requires constant energy, material and water inputs. On the export side: their hazardous waste goes to landfills in the counties where poor dark skinned people live.


Summary: Well, summing up the northern California water and energy picture in just a few sites isn’t quite low hanging fruit. For a great historical context on power and water in the western US you might read Cadillac Desert, still the bible on the subject. Well documented and footnoted, one of the major themes is how little water and power are available to major cities in the US, especially LA and SF. That is, water and power are imported from vast distances requiring major investments of time, energy, materials (and lives).




"The scale of this book is as staggering as that of Hoover Dam. Beautifully written and meticulously researched, it spans our century-long effort to moisten the arid West. . . . Anyone thinking of moving west of the hundredth meridian should read this book before they call their real estate agent."
--St. Louis Post-Dispatch


Miwok Village

Yes, despite what the great state and wiki garbage would have you believe, there was a permanent Miwok village flooded by Hetch Hetchy reservoir:




This page produces much information with numerous cites regarding Miwok use of the valley (the name of the valley is based on the original Miwok village) including documentation of inhabitation by Krober as far back as 1925. (The majority of data on the subject is non-published NPS data protected by ARPA and NAGPRA).


San Francisco Energy Production

If you want to believe the official state information, there are no operating power plants in San Francisco:


Source: Ca Energy Commission

Status: No operating power plants



Of course, the state information is inherently poor.


There are, indeed, at lest three power plants in San Francisco of public information:


-         - University Of San Francisco Power Plant

-         - Sf State University, Corp Yard Power Plant in San Francisco California

-         - Sunset Reservoir North Basin Power Plant



Production: 5MW “The 5-megawatt plant more than tripled the city's 2-megawatt solar generation capacity”. LOL


Yep, combined SF solar production is still orders of magnitude less [1] than Hetch Hetchy, which provides 17% of SF power [2].

http://www.sfog.us/solar/sfsites.htm [1]


San Francisco Solar production total: 8.1 MW

http://sfwater.org/index.aspx?page=403 [2]


8.1MW, funny! Hetchy provides over 1.5 BILLION MW a year!

6.3.18     Someone Sent Along this Banker Apologist Pablum


https://www.community-exchange.org/docs/what is money.htm


Interesting piece of propaganda. Note the year – 1913. The author served his masters in ‘banking law’ who would soon create the federal reserve and rob the American citizenry of their specie and replace with scrip debt. Mitchell the hack sought to prove his desired point, and still missed the mark.


He failed  to cite the bible, the most widely circulating book of the time, with ample applicable monetary references (might one suspect the monetary references in the old testament as apocrypha there is a wide body of substantiating secular corroboration and archeology evidence should one choose to look).


As far back as Genesis (23:16) the shekel is defined as a unit of standard silver weight passing as currency amongst honest merchants. By Samuel II (14:26) the royal treasury is already stamping the shekel as the government unit of trade whilst substituting a weight other than what previously traded.


Government manipulation of specie goes back thousands of years. Mitchell showed us, if anything, that the governments previous to 1913 were relatively honest compared to the frequent debasement of currency over the past 100 years.


Your dime, nickel, quarter, half and dollar all held silver in or after 1913; look at them now…

5.25.18     The Coming Financial Swindle


There is no mathematical equation that will allow America, or many other nations, to pay back the debt we've accrued - 'tis a physical impossibility.


The plan, as has been the playbook since the roman times, is to devalue the dollar so it becomes near worthless (hence the debt is 'paid' in worthless scrip) and then substitute with something else. Of course, if you are lucky they'll give you 5 for what you paid ten; though it may be much less favorable.


Some folks have written basic articles on the topic.


This article talks about the Debt Jubilee, but is mostly a sales  job:




This next one contains more reasoning (w/ better figures, graphs, charts, etc) and and a bit less doom, albeit another salesjob:




Of course, since both authors are government/money class shills they are simply front running this story as conditioning propaganda. 


Neither state the coming mechanisms:

  1. > The government and their lackeys in the press will continue to demonize cash (‘only used by terrorist and tax-dodgers’, etc) and then spread ebola-type viruses, claiming that the virus is spread via cash

  2. > Public clamors for government solution to government caused-problem = rollout of cashless society, first as an ‘option’ so you don’t get the disease

  3. > (There may be an interim step where the greenback is relegated for internal debt and the redback is rolled out for international payments, backed by US mining reserves [as is the current debt])

  4. > When ready (perhaps already is, the real reason DARPA/NSA invented the technology) the electronic debit system will be tied to the blockchain so that from birth every single financial (and socio/political) transaction will be tracked in perpetuity and via central control.

2.13.18     More Realities of Starting Process, baby steps, Long Before a Mine Ever Processes Earth


Even if you file patent, even if you pay large sums for exploration, even if you pay even larger sums to determine if the project is feasible, and then walk the cultural/political gauntlet of ‘environmental compliance and social justice’ leading to a bankable feasible study (which shows the project could, maybe, produce a profit), the chances of building a mine are quite low.

In fact, the world gold council states that:


"The likelihood of a gold discovery leading to a mine being developed is very low, with less than 0.1% of prospected sites leading to a productive mine." Read more on the life cycle of a gold mine here: http://spr.ly/6010D3zhg




The world gold council actually produces facts regarding the gold mining industry, not the political tripe manufactured by the Wilderness Society.


The saddest element of the story is that so few folks even have a basic understanding of production, business or economics that wilderness society and other propaganda arms can spew such drivel, which is copied verbatim on other links/pages/outlets, with nary a fact check, much less insertion of process, business or mining reality.


2.11.18     Wilderness Society and Their Minions spread lies about the Mining Act of 1872

In fact, in their shameless fundraising blather they didn't even make the effort to name the actual law, much less the restrictions on filing any type of claim. Specious claims that mining magnates would destroy the land for a few dollars an acre. Guess they never looked into the environmental costs of mining in the US, yar!


Actual fact, nobody has applied for mining claim on this uneconomic land since the feds were forced to return:

2.4.18     Hope the Superbowl Indicator is wrong

(which states a NFC win is bad for the US Dow Jones performance)


Or it could be a steep decline for US equity markets...


2.2.18     Ugly Day in the Market

Almost all sectors and asset classes.


Forced too buy a positioning SH (Short the S and P 500) - first time I've shorted the general equities in almost 3 years!


Hope it turns a long term loss.


Maybe the superbowl indicator will let us know!


(The January indicator- as the market goes in January it shall go the rest of the year - was positive).



1.26.18     California’s wealthiest 1 percent pay 48 percent of the state’s income tax

1.20.18     PR Nightmare - Catholic Bishop Distances himself from Pope who defends pedophiles

That's right children - sayeth the pope - if you don't have proof you were molested by the nice priest than STFU.

(Only the priests have the proof, still on their computer and shared amongst the bishops).




And the good clergy struggle to keep open empty churches as reasonable folk fail to support the pedophile-supporting vatican!


The Pope has better things to do than make right for institutionalized child abuse - he's busy fighting 'climate change' by forcing the carbon tax (modern day plenary indulgences) down our throat.


1.16.18     Goldfield, Nevada - International Car Forest of the Last Church



Along the lines of Carhenge in Alliance Nebraska and the Department of Mutant Vehicles in Black Rock City, Nv

1.5.18     Sold MNTR (bought yesterday)

Up almost 30% in one day, hope to buy back cheaper


1.4.18     Watching the Marijuana Market Crater and Crytp0 Stock Gyration Today

Buying opportunity if you have the stomach for the very high risk. Putting some of last years earnings into some speculations; went long TRTC, MNTR, GBLX and MCOA in the MJ sector; BLKCF, CINGF and BTCS in the crypto sector.


1.4.18     Top Weird Things that Sold in 2017



Well, not sure those were the tops as the weirdest probably didn't appear in the press. But, as the article displays yet again, there's a market for practically anything - find your niche!


12.31.17     CoinMine 2017 Public Trades:

Profits of @2.7%, 6.5%, 14%, 2.6%, 3.5%, 6% and 1%

Short term trade went according to plan, up @2.7% in 5 working days


12.21.17     Bought GLD for a short term trade

12.7.17     Judge does what he is Paid to Do:

Support the leviathan tax authority above all!

Demands CoinBase provide data to IRS




Simple really, distort the law (never meant to protect YOU) to define anyone making a profit in crytpocurrencies as a tax dodge = Tax State wins again!


12.7.17     Because Sea Levels are not Rising

Climategate fraudsters fake the date to convince themselves sea level is actually happening:




Yet another damning illustration of climate fraud...


11.28.17     Sold  (GT)

Another nice pop today makes @6.5% gain in 10 days - yes sir may I have another!

That outfit Guggenheim lowered their rating at 52 week lows - either they are 1) criminally inept, or 2) just criminal (buying while telling you to sell)


11.28.17     With the rise in Cyrptocurrencies

We've been getting a lot of interest in buying our domain. Fascinating to interact with those who want an even bigger slice of the pie.


11.17.17     Really enjoy watching the parasite class in Hollywood and Washington DC turn on each other

Once we citizens on Main Street stopped willingly serving as their hosts, the viruses had no choice but to cannibalize their own!


11.17.17    Sold MNK

Up over 14% in less than that many days, take it when you make it!


11.8.17     Bought Goodyear (GT)

Looks like sales volume is petering out...


11.8.17     Bought MNK

Speculative buy (funny to say on a mid cap biopharm). No previous position, may be time to start scaling back into this sector...


11.4.17    More Fraud by Red Cross

Seems like every time there is a disaster, a few months later one can read about the Red Cross mis-managing funds meant for victims.

That's what the degenerate propaganda network Reuters wants the plebes to believe!




Thing is, the majority of Bitcoin has been flowing through Chinese pools for quite some time:




You think China wants that control to go to the US?

Or, you think this is a play to generate even greater control of the cyrpto currency flow?


You decide, I've already formed a thesis....

Even the Fed is giving up on their primary predictive tool - the Phillips Curve:



That's ok, Blue Oyster Cult said 'don't fear the reaper'

 mercury says don't fear deflation - gain from it!


In fact, Mauldin host Charles Gave provides some thought-provoking analysis on Japan's recent apparent awakening from a multi-decade deflation slump, coming through even stronger on the other side:



Japan has, indeed, been able to grow corporate equity - firms are flush with cash.


On the other hand US Corporations are saddled with an inordinate debt load. Here is the fed's estimate of such:



And that data is two years old, the problem was grown. Difficult to even get this information without paying for it; how many times have you seen the issue discussed by your 'leaders'?


Forget growing (debt) to prosperity - Japan showed austerity works.

8.22.17     How do markets perform following a solar eclipse? Pretty well, typically…



8.8.17     Someone sent along a Jim Rickards article, and asked for my opinion:

Here was my reply:

Conclusions? I only see a handful of vague prophesies – nothing specific enough to merit attention much less action. Without a timeline his predictions are worthless. Sure, it will all collapse. Rome and every superpower since also collapsed, but it took centuries. Rickards has been a US equities bear and gold bull for four solid years – wrong the entire time, an amazing opportunity cost. Just another fear mongerer cashing in on hype.

1. Cash? Ok, which currency? Rickards has also stated that the US Government (and others) want to outlaw cash (which is true). So, what is the purpose of cash? In other words, cash in only a means to an end, not the means itself.

2. Gold/Silver? He has been wrong on this trade for 4 years. Wrong time of the business/economic/credit cycle.

3. Museum quality collectibles? Sure, always nice to have something like that. And who exactly will pick it out for you to ensure it isn’t fake?

4. Land? Land w/o water rights or contaminated land is worse than worthless, it is a liability. Cash flow single family homes? Multifamily units? REITs? TICs? Any the other  42,000 ways to invest? Sure, all good – but what, where, when and with who?

He gets terrible reviews from folks that fell for his hype letters:


Bottom line, all terribly vague writing that is, at best, a crap shoot.

Better to buy/sell on a tactical basis in line with your longer term goals imho.

4.28.17     Check your pocket change, that penny could be worth 85k!

Yeah right. Interesting how mainstream media always portrays rare coins, and coin collecting in general, akin to playing the lottery. It isn't. Lottery is blind luck. Coin collecting is a hobby or investment, as depending how much time and effort you put into it, the financial results vary accordingly. Not like main stream media accepts the fact life it what you put into it...




4.28.17     Bought Edwards Life Sciences (EW)

Paid high, hopefully sell higher (should be a longer term trade/hold). Good relative strength on a California firm. Sure, it's expensive (real expensive). But you have to put the money somewhere (and many sectors look expensive right now). Just bought a bunch of coins, maybe buy more?

Couple months later they discovered bank never credited account for the check deposit.  Writer of the check had to go to their bank and order a copy. Copy showed, indeed, that the check was cashed - but the endorsement stamp was so faint as to read illegible.


Had the friend not lucked out and find the original deposit slop in the to-be-shredded pile the bank would have kept the money.


Wonder how many times a hear the banksters pull that scam for small amounts and the plebes never even know!?!

2.18.17     Occasionally Worth Looking at the Callan Periodic Table of Investment Returns

to track the return of the various asset classes over a period of time.


Below is a Callan chart for nine asset classes ranked between the years 1993 and 2012.


This chart I provide here tracks just five asset classes (stocks are grouped rather than split), and the period of performance is longer - 1972-2015, showing how many times each asset class came in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th:



  REIT Gold Stocks Bonds Cash (USD$)
Rank 1 17 12 7 6 1
Rank 2 7 7 13 11 6
Rank 3 7 6 9 11 10
Rank 4 5 3 7 12 16
Rank 5 8 15 8 4 9

We can see that over that 33 year performance period a few trends:

* Cash generally performs poorer than the other four asset classes

* Stocks and Bonds tend to perform neither the best nor the worst over the years, but tend to perform in the middle of the pack.

* Gold and REITs tend to either perform very well, or very poorly

* REITS in particular tend to outperform the other market classes

Hence, making investment sector choices - heavily weighting one over another - will provide for a better than average return (so long as you generally pick right!)
