Victory lap

It's been a good month for predictions here at the WCV.

We were the first (only?) to instantly call BS on the FBI arrest of an Elvis impersonator in the ricin mailing:
I wouldn't be surprised if the ricin thing turns out to be a mistaken lab test, and this guy was just sending ordinary conspiracy theory letters to Obama and Senator Wicker. How stupid would you have to be to sign your Elvis impersonator stage name to letters containing ricin?
Whether or not there actually was ricin that maybe somebody else sent, Kevin Curtis has been released as he was indeed not that stupid.  Not that it's a difficult call to say the FBI always fingers the wrong guy first (Richard Jewell, Dr. Steven Hatfill...).

We had similar success early in the gold plunge:
This could get a lot uglier [It did.] as leveraged futures holders get margin calls and are forced to sell. Those with physical gold and a long-term view? Buying opportunity [It was.].
We missed one opportunity for a layup as the left-wing media were falling all over themselves hoping for a Tea Party terrorist.  It was obvious to anyone with two brain cells to rub together that Boston was likely a foreign-born Islamic radical, but we didn't get around to posting the obvious.  Next time.

I'm not a fan, but I was surprised at the drop in gold and couldn't believe it was anything other than a hiccup.

If you listen carefully, you can hear the printing machines whirring away around the world.

Well done. Fear not, we went through and layed the Boston blame upon the parties involved rather quickly. It seems the final connection between the 2123B Saudi terrorist with Al Qaeda ties and his fellow mosque mates has not been proven, but it eventually shall be.

"Obama's Chechens have come home to roost." I don't recall who said that, but I nearly suffocated laughing.

Strange days indeed

I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, but look at what the security agencies did to create and promote the Russia collusion hoax and th...
