MK: We disagree with JR on his comments regarding revolts in N. Africa/Mid-East (he hews toward the line given by Fox propaganda) as well as his comments regarding the role of Big Oil in these events. On Davos, Jim rings the alarm bell on the ‘100 trillion dollar’ recapitalization plan brought up at Davos. On this item we agree with his comments completely. We’d like to point out that JR’s previoius comments on KWN re: the role of SDR’s in this transition; when he was essentially minimizing the potential for SDR’s . . . we disagreed at the time with those comments and said that SDR’s would evolve as the key mechanism. JR now agrees with our thinking on this. UPDATE on Podcast war: The war of the podcasts between Eric King and Jim Puplava continues . . . JR makes an overt reference to those who are pushing the line that ‘Silver is plentiful in the market’ (read: Publava) vs. Eric King and JR (as well as this site) that are saying that Silver is NOT available in the quantities suggested by some. A look at the web traffic on Alexa shows that KingWorldNews and MaxKeiser.com are surging while financialsense is limp.
MK: A headline you will never see; ‘Man gives 140 Oz’s of Gold to fake online girlfriend.’ This is the problem with fiat money, it’s impossible to take it seriously.
