David Scranton – Shutdown Was a Loser for All Concerned

from Financial Survival Network

David Scranton joined us today. What did we get from the partial governmental shutdown? David believes not very much. We’ll see lower GDP growth and lower economic growth. The actual cost of the shutdown will cost more than many walls would have. It was all for naught. David believes that it would have been worth having a shutdown over the nation’s burgeoning debt levels, instead of the border wall. Now it’s likely there won’t be another shutdown, for better or for worse.

E.J. McMahon – Trying to Bring Economic Sanity to New York

from Financial Survival Network

E.J. McMahon could be the last sane person still in New York, at least after I left. As research director at the Empire Center for Public Policy and an adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute, EJ fights a never ending battle against the economic insanity that passes for policy in my former home state. Unfortunately, it’s been a uphill battle. With people like AOC, Comrade DeBlasio and Comrade Cuomo running things, it’s almost impossible to maintain optimism and hope for the future. We discussed the impact of the new tax law on NYS, the further drain of high income earners to lower tax states, as well as mentally ill induced homelessness and NYS/NYC’s crumbling infrastructure. There’s a lot here that needs to be heard.

Elizabeth Hale – New Tax Law Effects Being Felt

from Financial Survival Network

Elizabeth Hale is founder of eeCPA. 2018 is over and now the effects of the new tax law are starting to be take hold. Clearly the upper middle class and working rich have taken a major hit, especially those in high-tax states. While there were some benefits spread around, the loss of the State and Local Tax Deduction has cost select groups billions. This is leading to an exodus from these states to lower tax ones. You need only reside in a low tax state slightly more than half the year to take advantage of lower rates. Many people are starting to figure this out. Expect the trend to accelerate in the coming years.

John Rubino – Gold Looking Brighter

from Financial Survival Network

John Rubino returns… Gold has been looking much brighter lately, but is it ready to shine? The declining global financial system has made many of us believe that gold would keep going up and up. But we’ve been wrong for years. Precious metals markets have been in a pronounced secular bear market, with lower lows and lower highs. Until now, perhaps. The key technical resistance point is $1350-$1363 per ounce. If it breaks through in the near term, we’ll have our needed confirmation. However, it might not follow through, in which case we’ll be looking towards a summer rally. Either way, it’s entirely likely that the tide has turned.

Ivan Bebek – A Mining Legend in the Making

from Financial Survival Network

Ivan Bebek’s company, Auryn Resources (AUG on the TSX and NYSE American – FSN Sponsor) is on the cusp of two major gold discoveries. With his team in place, he has already built and sold two successful exploration companies. Auryn could easily be the next. On this go ’round Ivan is using state of the art artificial intelligence (AI) to hone in on hoped for massive deposits. The company can easily raise needed capital. It’s one of the best financially situated juniors in the market today. Most people would be content to sell  just one company to a major, or to make one world-class discovery, but not Ivan. He is used to reaching for the stars and discovering major success.

Triple Lutz Report #466 – High Tax States Crashing and RIP Prince Leonard

from Financial Survival Network

As we wrote recently, high tax states like NY, CA, CT, NJ, MA, IL and others are starting to feel the new tax law’s impact. Governor Andy Cuomo went to the White House hat in hand to beg for the increasing of the SALT deduction (It was unlimited but the law reduced it to 10k per annum). He’s looking at a $2.3 billion hole in his budget directly attributable to it. Good luck there. President Trump suggested he look at reducing high taxes, now there’s a novel concept. We mourn the passing of Prince Leonard, who took on the Australian central government when they tried to put his farm out of business. He started the province Hutt River which the government refused to recognize. Once, for three days, he declared war on the state. Hopefully his spirit will carry on and a new generation of Aussies will continue the fight.

Ed Moya – China Trade War Ending Soon

from Financial Survival Network

Ed Moya believes that the trade war will be ending soon. While Trump might not get everything he’s looking for there will be substantial changes in the relationship that will be beneficial for the US. Look for higher ag and energy exports and perhaps some movement on IP and Tech as well. Of course there will be compromises but overall this should result in improved stock market performance. While earnings growth has headed downward recently, it could accelerate for certain sectors once a deal is completed. There won’t be any more government shutdowns and let’s see what happens with the next debt ceiling increase.

Dave Jackson – Podcast Trainer Extraordinaire!

from Viral Podcasting

Dave Jackson was a professional trainer and almost too good at his job. Several times he was called into his boss’s office and regrettably shown the door, through no fault of his own. It was always the same story, you’re doing a great job but sales, not so much. The last time it happened, he had a Plan B, become a professional podcaster and teach others how to do the same. Dave started podcasting at a time when almost no one knew what an RSS Feed was. A lot of the podcasting conveniences we take for granted, didn’t exist when Dave started. But he prevailed and has dedicated his career to helping hundreds of podcasters find their way through the jungle. And he does a great show too.

Let’s Face It: The U.S. Constitution Has Failed

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

Elections provide the bread-and-circuses staged drama that is passed off as democracy.

Despite the anything-goes quality of American culture, one thing remains verboten to say publicly: the U.S. Constitution has failed. The reason why this painfully obvious fact cannot be discussed publicly is that it gives the lie to the legitimacy of the entire status quo.

The Constitution was intended to limit 1) the power of government over the citizenry 2) the power of each branch of government and 3) the power of political/financial elites over the government and the citizenry, as the Founders recognized the intrinsic risks of an all-powerful state, an all-powerful state dominated by one branch of government and the risks of a financial elite corrupting the state to serve their interests above those of the citizenry.

Here Comes Trouble

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker.org

The Washington comPost is going to be the new name, I suspect….

Attorneys representing the Kentucky high school student involved in a confrontation that went viral on social media last month announced Tuesday that they were suing The Washington Post for $250 million in compensatory and punitive damages.

This should be amusing to watch.

The kid has a very strong case. Not just on the facts, which are going to be extremely hard to argue over — but due to who he is.

He’s not a public figure and he is a minor.

Further, the media deliberately ignored the fact (which they knew about) that Phillips, almost-immediately after accosting Sandmann, tried to crash a Catholic Mass at the nearby cathedral — and was repelled by security.

Bear Market in Gold & Silver is Over – Craig Hemke with Greg Hunter

Craig Hemke – Make-Believe Gold and Silver Scheme Going to Collapse

by Greg Hunter
USA Watchdog

Financial writer and precious metals expert Craig Hemke says, “The bear market in gold and silver is over.” Hemke contends the central bankers’ price suppression of gold and silver is grinding to a close. Hemke explains, “. . . They created the illusion of physical delivery. What happens when the banks, wanting the gold because it is now a tier 1 asset, say I can’t play this promissory note game anymore? Just like physical demand broke the U.S. for suppression price in the 1950’s and just like physical demand broke the London Gold Pool price in the 1960’s, physical demand will break this fractional reserve and derivative pricing scheme that has worked since 1975. It’s now going to fail too. . . . Anybody that has one ounce of gold will be darn glad they have it when the time comes.”Hemke says there are several factors leading to the perfect storm of price explosion for precious metals. On April 1st, new rules will allow banks to hold gold as a so-called tier 1 asset. Hemke points out, “This is why central banks are buying gold too. . . . Gold will be considered a riskless asset just like Treasury bonds. The way it is currently structured now, if you had $1 billion in gold in your reserves in the bank, you could only count half of that as your reserves. . . . So, $1 billion in gold only counted as $500 million. Now, it will count for the full $1billion.”

Michael Pento Ph.D. & Chris Waltzek Ph.D. – February 19th, 2019

by Chris Waltzek
GoldSeek Radio

Michael Pento, President and Founder of Pento Portfolio Strategies LLC returns to Goldseek.com Radio – he graciously outlines his current portfolio-strategy in detail for the listening audience. One of the few economic pundits to correctly anticipate the market plunge of 2018 on record, our guest notes gold and utilities remain favorite long positions, while he is comfortable with a short position in long-term Treasuries ETF (TLT), after posting solid gains in the short-term Treasuries ETF (SHY). Mr. Pento crushes the opposition on the trade war debate, presenting compelling evidence that the Administration’s tax increases on imports have actually boosted domestic GDP, contrary to popular consensus.

Frivolous Petition Says “Sell Montana to Canada for $1 Trillion” to Reduce National Debt

by Mike ‘Mish’ Shedlock
Mish Talk

A frivolous petition on Change.Org proposes selling Montana to Canada to “eliminate” the national debt.

A Change.Org petition proposes Sell Montana to Canada for $1 Trillion to Eliminate the National Debt.

It seems the person who wrote the petition is totally clueless about the national debt. It’s about $22 trillion and it will grow about $1 trillion a year because we have $1 trillion deficits as far as the eye can see.

Alternatively, the petition sponsor recognized that and simply wanted to make the idea as absurd as possible.

Gold is Having a Great Run and So Are Gold Stocks

by Randall W. Forsyth
Market Watch

Gold prices on Tuesday staged their biggest gain since last November, with Comex futures jumping $22 an ounce, or 1.67%, to $1,340. Since its recent low on Jan. 24, the yellow metal was up 4.77%, and up almost 14% from its 52-week low on Aug. 16.

Gold mining stocks, as usual, outpaced bullion. The ETF (ticker:GDX), which tracks the big miners, jumped 3.17% on Tuesday, to $23.14, just shy of its 52-week high. The more volatile ETF (GDXJ) popped 4.22%, also within a hair of its yearly high.

Gold’s advance has come in the face of the continued rally in stocks and other risky assets—instead of moving in the opposite direction of those investments.
