“In my opinion the biggest news of all in the last few months was that Warren Buffett the oracle of Omaha dumped bank stocks and he dumped airline stocks and he got into Barrick Gold. In other words he shifted into gold mining and he and his buddy peter i mean monger have bad mouth gold forever they own some silver but they bad mouth gold forever and so that is the biggest news of all, because it says something is really fundamentally changed.

In America I mean foundationally, if airlines are going, if he's dumping

airline stocks and he's dumping bank stocks the question is, What does that mean?

You know and CNBC and the other cnbs as they call it,

If they don't cover it, nobody covers it and this is bigger you know. I mean Trump or Biden, it's important but Buffett going into Barrick Gold

is a thousand times bigger news to all of us, because Trump or Biden

have no possible power they cannot stop what's about to happen. So let me say it again, the biggest news of all is not Trump or Biden or Covid, it's Warren Buffett dumping bank stocks. Can you imagine that,

can you imagine that and dumping airline stocks and then buying Barrack Gold. We don't know what else he's bought and the question is, what does that really mean?”
