    @Youri,.. To use the term “Taxpayer” so flippantly is usually a sign you’ve been conditioned by the system.

    These are the correct terms: Extortion, outwresting, and/or exaction

    If the culture you’ve been born into explains that to stick a pole up your arse vigor”ass”ly is a polite way to meet a friend,. then this becomes your “i” s belief

    “Almost all people of all eras are hypnotics. Their beliefs are induced beliefs. The proper authorities saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and people believed properly.”

    –Charles Fort

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    –Joseph Goebbels (Hitler’s Propaganda Minister)

    Don’t be Wankers, eliminate the Banksters.

    Be Bold, Buy Silver or Gold.

    Crash JP Morgan, who’s playing devils organ.

    But Silver and Golden Angels will piss on them from heaven and our spirits will Leav·en.

    The main reason public education is so bad in the US, insurance.

    Can’t do anything without their approval.

    Incredible interview. The most significant one I’ve seen in some time. Max, you should repost this ’bout June or so…….brilliant. And oh, one other thing…..HOLY SHITE!!!!!

    As credit disappears guess what will be on the menu? Real money. Whassat you say? The world is about to find out. JPM will be in tears.

  7. Apocalypto says:

    @ Philip

    That story bugs me.

  8. JohnQPublic says:

    Granted, if the credit system dries up, GLOBAL trade gets more difficult. It becomes more difficult to ship Amercan jobs overseas (pity). It means that we may have to start manufacturing our own stuff instead of being subsidized by cheap labor in China and buying through Walmart. The financial system is already dead. America needs to wkae up and start preparing to take care of itself again.

    Is it true you call your uncle “Daddy”?

  10. JohnQPublic says:

    BTW there is a John Q Public, and me JohnQPublic. For the record I have some agreement with the comment by John Q Public.

  11. Marc Authier says:

    El Nigno. It ain’t global warming. Again. If you want something to defend Max, oil depletion and natural resources are the real problem. And hell ! There are fantastic solutions to the problem. It’s called nuclear energy. You live in France. Do you glow in the dark at night ? No. The truth is that anyways, China has for 20 years of coal reserves. That’s not a lot indeed for a country with 1,3 billion people. Meanwhile Earth has for 700 years of uranium and thorium reserves.

  12. Robert Mockan says:

    @ Marc Authier

    You said, “…Meanwhile Earth has for 700 years of uranium and thorium reserves..”

    Actually, reserves of uranium and thorium exceed 5 BILLION years. Although the US had its day for going nuclear, and turned away towards.. windmills(!), clearly the nuclear future belongs to China, India, and the developing countries. While the Malthusian branch of globalists push for de-industrialization and de-population, sane people and governments disagree with that future.

    These “weather extremes have happened before” Believe what YOU like MAX. Yes I Love AIG, I Love GS, I Love BOA, Yes I shorted American & United Airlines and made huge profits. Now with the “coal under water in Aussie” I will make huge profits on NZ coal, WHY because I subscribe to Piers Corbyn’s weatheraction, predicting future weather based on the past!. Its not what you know its WHO you know.

  14. Robert Mockan says:

    The Gregor Macdonald interview focused on many worthy issues. For example all fiat purchasing power for a basket of commodities is decreasing. That is de facto inflation. PMs should break out of their control range soon, and gold north of $2000 ounce sometime this year would not surprise me. Calling energy resources the standard, rather than having a gold standard, and pointing out that taking on more debt to “grow” out of a depression when energy costs are increasing is unlikely, is also a point well made. Gregor mentioned China uses coal primarily. But neglected to mention that China has in process, and plans to build more, nuclear power plants over the next 40 years such that it will be using more nuclear power than all other countries in the world combined. So China long term will have few energy problems, thus few, if any, debt problems. Indeed Since China is buying resource companies (mining), and has enough land to provide all its agriculture needs, China is de facto THE leading country of the world today. India will be be a close second, then Japan, then some of the EU countries will survive their economic crises (France and Germany). Other countries that have a future are South American, African, Australia, New Zealand, Canada. Max Keiser has said something in other On the Edge reports, that is painful to recognize as true. The American people have become irrelevant to the future of the world. The US government does not represent them anymore. Like Gerald Celente says, Fascism has come to America. These On The Edge Interviews all seem to reveal the people in the USA are not going to fight for their freedom and liberty. Not with so many having no savings, so many living from food stamp book to book, with schools turning out many kids who are unable to read, write, OR do arithmetic, and who have only been “taught” to have little interest in learning how.
