If there’s one thing I’m famous for – or some might say, infamous; it’s CALLING BULL when I see it. Whether politician, financier, or newsletter writer; you can be sure if the person is a hypocrite, self-server, or charlatan – RANTING ANDY will be there to inform you. In fact, at many of my presentations and Webinars, a good portion of the Q&A is dedicated to “deconstructing” those purporting to be “good” in a world chock full of bad.
Beware of performance of newsletters writers
Each day, the “evil troika” of Washington, Wall Street and the MSM suffocate us with PROPAGANDA; often, from those we had previously trusted. The Cartel CANNOT destroy my infallible position in PHYSICAL PMs; however, they can certainly irritate me by presenting the tainted, biased views of those claiming to be on my side – but in REALITY, could care less if I live or die…
This RANT was inspired by the non-stop prattling of Bill Gross of PIMCO; who I have long railed against as someone that used the power of his role – as the world’s largest bond fund manager – to influence government policy; i.e. crying like a baby for mortgage bond BAILOUTS. He appears to have finally “found religion” in his recent criticism of government PRINTING and SPENDING – and even advocates gold. However, as a “MAINSTREAM” portfolio manager, he must still speak of “markets” as if they are freely-traded…
As of now, …the price of gold [does] not suggest that markets are worried about the global inflation consequences of QE.

…and thus, I still view him as a “snake in the grass”; albeit, a garter snake compared to vipers like Warren Buffett…

To wit, I’ve already written volumes of the TRAITOR Warren Buffett has become; particularly as his father was one of U.S. history’s most noted “goldbugs.”

Then you have the politicians; starting with none other than Rudy Giuliani – the NYC mayor during 9/11. Long-time readers know I not only was ten blocks away when it happened – in the Travelers building on Greenwich Street; but worked at Cantor Fitzgerald in 1993-96 – on the 105th Floor of the South Tower – when the first WTC bombing occurred. I lost many friends and colleagues in the 2001 false flag attack; and thus, have as much right to a 9/11 opinion as anyone…
Loose Change Final Cut (FULL VERSION)
In its aftermath, Rudy was as inspiring a leader as I had ever come across. However, to see him morph from a “war hero” to a political stooge with but one goal – to become PRESIDENT – was among the most sickening “SELLOUTS!” imaginable…

Similarly – although not as dramatically – Chris Christie of New Jersey went from being the most respected politician in my universe to one of its leading “SELLOUTS!” He, too, parlayed a once-admirable set of ethics into political posturing (likely for a 2016 Presidential run); and to watch him whine like a baby in Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath – exploiting it ENTIRELY for political gain – was truly a vile site to behold…

Last but not least, there’s “Mayor Bloomberg” of New York; whose lust for money and power is so great, he re-wrote the term limits provision of New York’s constitution. Once one of the heroes of my financial world; he, too, has significantly abused his power; both on a personal level…

The point of this RANT is to keep you aware that “precious few” people could care less about your well-being; and as the GLOBAL ECONOMIC COLLAPSE gains momentum – HYPERINFLATION and all – the amount of Atlas Shrugged-like “SELLOUTS!” will only expand – exponentially.

All of the aforementioned elitist scum-especially Armstrong and that govt insider Warren Buffett-have made their fortunes in PAPER,as this post-WWII paradigm is all they’ve known in their business careers.Moreover,don’t think for one second that all of them are not accumulating PMs even as they denigrate those of us who see the writing on the wall for the USD,the global economy,and worthless pieces of paper.
Wow. Finest Post Ever Andy!
Martin Armstrong would have to be one of the few real economists out there and certainly there are few with his depth of knowledge or track record. Same with Larry Edelson who was ridiculed for his calls that gold and silver were going to crash, and to his credit stuck with those calls despite all the negative press from the permabulls. What they have in common is a healthy detachment from the usual, almost religious, fervour of the gold bugs. Hey, I consider myself a gold bug but Armstrong has mead me realise its a commodity like any other, it is susceptible to being over bought and also there are a myriad of world wide circumstances affecting its price. This is something most goldbugs don’t seem to understand, the whole picture. They just concentrate on money printing equals inflation and can’t understand why the price falls. Sinclair and Turk have been just plain wrong, as has Jason Hommel for encouraging people to buy when gold was heading for $2000 and silver $50, who was doing the most disservice to investors then? How many of those people are now underwater and reluctant to ever jump back in? Hommel is laughable saying “I WAS TAUGHT BY A DIFFERENT SOURCE, THE BIBLE AND BY REASON.” I mean, come on! Reason okay but the bible! Really? For investing? And you take this guy seriously?
The trouble with you guys are you are far too myopic and anyone who says anything other than gold is going to the moon is a bad guy or one of Them …it just goes to show how desperate you are to believe your own story…or perhaps talk your own book. Armstrong rocks because he has an incredible track record in all kinds of markets all over the world at a level you guys can only dream about, don’t criticise what you don’t understand.
I never read your stuff except for today and now I see why, just another perma bull, and I call BS on you!
You can write as eloquently as you like; but if you think what is going on with PMs is either “technical” or fundamental in nature, you are either delusional or have an agenda. If someone that has been right for 12 years – about both the economy and PM prices – is worth ridiculing, go right ahead. You’ll find yourself in the 99.9% minority.
Well said.You have to admire folks like Kerry who have total faith in Central Bank interventions and fiat money,and yet call themselves free market Capitalists.Ludwig von Mises wrote a book about it the very thing-“The Anti-Capitalist Mentality”. These are the same people who got crushed back in 2008,and they’ll get crushed for good this time.
I think you both, actually all the authors on Miles Frankline, miss the point. It took a while for me to get it after following Turk, Sinclair etc. I originally started with, and still admire, Bill Bonner for he is totally realistic and accepts that the market is always right. For starters I am for the free market principle, but it just doesn’t exist as you know. I am heavily invested in gold and silver and still buy on the dips when I can.
The point you miss with Edelson, and more so Armstrong, is the work on cycles which dictate where the markets are going, it’s not strictly day to day, week by week chart analysis, it’s cycles going back tens or hundreds of years, it’s nature itself in motion and the result of human emotions which never change but go through the same cycles. The fact is Armstrong has the answers for what is happening and called it as it is, for that he’s called a sell out because he’s not on the same , wrong, page as all the gold and silver bulls! And you guys are the first to claim the moral high ground on finding the truth in the markes but as soon as some one, like Armstrong , has answers that don’t agree with your hypothesis he is ridiculed!
As he says you are shouting you are right while the market is proving you wrong.
As for ridiculing some one who has been right for 12 years what about Armstrong who’s been right a decade or two more on so many different markets including gold?
And to Scott, didn’t you read where I said I consider myself a goldbugs? Do you think that I’m a gold bug because I believe in fiat money and central bank intervention and fractional reserve banking? As for being crushed in 2008 , wasn’t everybody crushed, gold bugs included? This is what I’m talking about, you have to get real! Don’t you remember the high ho silvers when it flew past $40 and closed in on $50? Did you believe it was going parabolic? Well, it didn’t!
What I’m getting at is you guys are married to the trade, you’ll probably never sell your gold or even borrow against it, if you can even do that, you’ll stick with it when it goes up, as I also expect it to do, and when it goes back down.
Just saying is all, don’t believe the hype.
