electric power……

Posted by LurkerSince95 @ 23:43 on February 19, 2021  

it is a little more complicated than you would think……

follow the money

ok shut down alaska pipeline, who benefits?   warren buffet. great political contributor,  he also owns the railroad that transports oil and coal from north to south…

texas  nuclear plant also shut down, why ? circulating lake water is necessary to cool the steam from the turbines that is pumped back to the steam generators to make steam….    lake is frozen, no circulation.  shutdown!

texas also did not want to be tied to national electric grid,  too expensive; operators were not allowed to be re-inbersed (highter utility bill) for non-used backup power sources or ‘cold weather’  back-ups, etc, etc, etc…..

just a cursory overview with not too much fact-checking…….


lets hope…

that the STATE that has more energy than any other has problems.Its the people running it  STUPID .DIDnt they ever hear of CO-Generation ,combining two sources so one can cover for the other under situations that effect one of them .

Gas can co burn with Coal,to keep it clean. Every windmill could have a electric heater powered by SOLAR and so on.Where are the Engineers.?

I can tell you this ,these people could never have worked for me or my Father ..we didnt wait for things to come to a halt before fixing them …DAD would have screamed at them ,I was a bit milder ,I would have made their paychecks dependent on keeping things running.  They got to have some skin in the game…..

California still removing DAMS to protest a snail Darter possibly and lost free hydro electric power and the water runs into the ocean in a fresh water needy state .  DAM STUPID .  LETS put stupid in charge  to shut him up ..its going on all over the country ..JUST tell STUPID to shut up …instead .

Dont give BUFFETT so much sympathy.He bought SILVER back when and waited for it to head up then sold it to protect his stock portfolio ,driving silver down.Turned around and quietly bought a JEWELRY company thinking the public will sell SILVER & GOLD protecting his vast stock portfolio .Hes a snake like the rest of them.He did Newmont the same ,it was a show to drive the GOLD BUGS out to protect his real interests that he cant sell short ,and has NO way out in a bear market.

WARNING: Green energy FAILS Texas during unprecedented “climate emergency”

Protesting lockdowns still allowed in Ottawa, unlike Toronto……Much corruption exposed in this protest video.

Posted by silverngold @ 15:40 on February 19, 2021  

If you’re short of time, please at least watch the second half where many people express their frustration and expose how the government, starting at the top, is attempting to remove any remaining rights Canadians have been given under Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Past time to be waking up people!

How much longer will we put up with this Green idiocy…everything they touch, they ruin….’effing morons

Outages Morph Into Outrage As Texans Slapped With “Mind-Blowing” Power Bills


treefrog – re: WPM

Posted by Buygold @ 14:46 on February 19, 2021  

Agree: There are a lot of pm shares that are gifts right now. To me a lot of the large cap golds are a gift as well, i.e. NEM, AEM, KL, KGC, etc.

Problem is that right now, the scum seems to be pressuring the shares without opposition.

Ever since Buffett announced he bought Barrick (GOLD), it’s gone down 40%. Even the scum won’t let him make a buck.

Edit – BTW – if the HUI breaks 260, whatever we hoped for a gold rally in 2021 is over. JMHO. This is just plain ugly.

Look At Silver Prices After 2001. A Big Rotation, I Call a Reversal Transition Of The Past

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 14:32 on February 19, 2021  

They had silver held back around $5/oz for decades, 9/11/01 was a “tipping point” which caused the 2008 financial crisis, you can see that on the chart below too.


Look at Crude Oil after 2001. The financial media is asleep. Or just don’t want to bring these observations to the public’s attention. Craziness after 2001.

Crude Oil: https://www.mrci.com/pdf/cl.pdf

Platinum: https://www.mrci.com/pdf/pl.pdf

Look at the Dopey/Dollar after 2001. That Idiot Banker Paul Volker started a 20 year deflation in commodities after his run up of interest rates in the 1970s to 21% in 1981. Remember the “strong dollar policy”? “Free Trade”? Will create jobs for Americans?


treefrog @ 12:00 re COMEX Copper Contract 25,000 Pounds Bulk Discount $4.07/lb

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 13:39 on February 19, 2021  

Thanks for the info. I looked it up. Plus found a live Barchart link, with plenty of interesting info. I have to assume, when ever a shortage arises, and prices go up, its because prior COMEX prices have been too low, causing production cutbacks and sell inventory. At the same time, more gets wasted, because its too cheap.

I’ve seen it with Oil too. When dollar was low on 72, it inverted Oil higher to $145/bbl. At such a high price investment and production went up, and the same time people cut back on use because gasoline was too high. And oil dropped to $28. It may be getting its sea legs who knows when?? Probably never.

It used to be, with a stable dollar and no naked shorting, supply and demand set the prices. Now adays its fluctuating prices that adjust the supply and demand.

COMEX Copper Link:



Copper is biostatic, meaning that bacteria will not grow on its surface, and it is therefore used in air-conditioning systems, food processing surfaces, and doorknobs to prevent the spread of disease.

Copper futures and options are traded on the London Metal Exchange (LME) and the CME Group.  futures contract calls for the delivery of 25,000 pounds of Grade 1 electrolyte copper and is priced in terms of cents per pound.

Supply – World production of copper in 2019 fell -2.0% yr/yr to 20.000 million metric tons, down from the previous year’s record high.

U.S. production of refined copper in 2019 fell -6.5% yr/yr to 1.000 million short tons, far below the record U.S. production level of 2.140 million short tons seen in 1998.

Comment: Copper was .60 cents/lb in ’68, too cheap, high usage, high production. Copper was .50 cents, to $1.50/lb from 1970 to 2004 probably because of manipulation. 09/11/2001 TPTB lost control as you can see clearly on the chart below. Most commodity charts look the same.


Yet again Nem was the tell, that the scum would cap all PM’s today.

Yep be looking at the metals that have to do with Solar panels. lol but may be a new focus. Gates wants more nuke power too but after Fukushima that’s still causing trouble today that might not be too easy. People look to be looking to move things around preparing for or in case a correction too.

mr copper,

spot copper prices from kitco


this is electrode copper, straight from the smelter/refiner in industrial quantities.  $4.05/lb.

treefrog @ 11:22 re Copper Over $4/lb, Chop Meat Costs More Than That

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 11:48 on February 19, 2021  

Copper to me is a semi precious metal, plus its the only metal other than Gold that has color. Retail Copper prices are extremely higher than COMEX prices. I wonder what form it is in for $4. It can’t be .999 or .995 pure. Scrap Copper $4/lb is probably available turning it in at the junk yard.

.999 fine Copper Rounds $1.99 per ounce $34 per pound.  Last year they were $1/oz. $16/lb. So even people buying copper rounds at coin shows doubled their money.


BTW, 140 pre 1982 .995 pure Copper Pennies gleans a pound, only cost $1.40 per pound.

Don’t stop looking into it. That Doctor who I heard of before has particular microbes and probiotics depending on what it is down to a science. There’s others too weren’t mention to do with nutrients like the omega. Looks like that sauerkraut has some benefit.
That was interesting about mice became fat that weren’t before by getting the microbes of a fat person. Now I can think well these bugs can cause a person perhaps to crave more food or certain foods to feed them like maybe a lot of starch and sugars and fat. But then these are mice. They can’t get their own food. There just eating what they give them.
