Alasdair MacLeod – Everything’s Coming Up China

from Financial Survival Network

According to our good friend Alasdair MacLeod of GoldMoney.com, China is booming and taking the rest of the world with it, except for the US that is.

The US has isolated itself and is being left in the dust. China has shifted their economy away from making junk to high quality, hi-tech goods.

Will it work? What about all the debt they’ve created in mean time? Let’s see what happens next.

from Financial Survival Network

Our good friend Bix Weir joined us today… Stanley Fischer is gone. Does this mark the triumph of the Good Guys? Let’s see.

Ivan Eland – Trump’s Jacksonian Foreign Policy

from Financial Survival Network

Ivan Eland joined us again… President Trump spoke at the UN yesterday. Many of his policy aspirations echo those of Andrew Jackson. America First! Let other countries fight their own battles, with the US’s support. He also castigated the UN’s corruption and wastefulness. How he will square his stated policy with the continued ground war in Afghanistan is another issue. Nation building is still taking place and there’s no end in sight and there’s no way to determine if we’re winning. A quagmire.

John LeBoutillier – Will Mueller Get Trump?

from Financial Survival Network

Former congressman John LeBoutillier and I squared off about the Trump investigation. John believes there’s something there and that the President has reason to be concerned. I’m skeptical of the entire witch hunt. The Russians are coming was a great movie, but not so good a political meme. Let’s see what happens next. And let’s see the republicans go into full scale panic mode to pas the Trump Agenda, or at least major parts of it. They’re scared to death about the 2018 elections.

Should I Go or Should I Stay?

by Kerry Lutz
Financial Survival Network

I was sitting in my Palm Beach County Florida office contemplating Super Storm Irma. The question running through my mind echoed the 1981 song by The ClashShould I Stay or Should I Go? The question is simple, stay and face the wrath of Irma or flee and hopefully avoid it. We all know that the media and the government are completely corrupt. Where were the dire warnings coming from? The answer, several government agencies (NOAA NHC and NWC) and a host of legacy media outlets. It should be noted that the media outlets simply regurgitate information provided to them by these agencies, with some scary graphics of their own creation.

It showed a Category 5 Hurricane with 180 plus winds bearing down upon the Caribbean headed straight for South Florida. When it comes to hurricanes, weather forecasters understandably feel it’s better to over promise and under deliver. That’s not to say that Irma wasn’t a very dangerous, potentially cataclysmic storm. When predicting major weather events, it’s in the best interests of the forecasters to scare the hell out of everyone, so that the maximum number of people evacuate to safety.

Andrew Hoffman – Crypto Gold Central Taking Off

from Financial Survival Network

Andrew Hoffman reports that after being in business for 8 days, things are going great. Check out his special 7 day free trial at CryptoGoldCentral.com. Gold’s fundamentals keep getting stronger. Gold’s still at $1310. We talked about China’s efforts to contain Bitcoin and the Crypto-Currencies. Today’s historic Fed meeting. Claims that they’re going to reduce their balance sheet are nonsense. It can’t be done. We’re never going above 2.5% rates, proof is today we’re at 2.2%. We’re missing two interest rate hikes promised for this year. Just wait till the King of Debt Donald Trump really kicks into high gear.

Richard C. Cella, III – Are You One of the 143 Million Equifax Victims?

from Financial Survival Network

Richard C. Cella, III talks about how the Equifax data breach that potentially affects 143 million U.S. customers, nearly two-thirds of the adult U.S. population, could be quite the mess to clean up. The hackers had access to EFX, -14.23% data from May until July 2017, which included Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers and credit card numbers, among other data.The company detected the breach on July 29, it said, and hired a cybersecurity firm to determine what data the hackers accessed. But in the time it took for the company to alert customers who could be affected, hackers could have used their data for purposes including opening credit cards or other lines of credit. And any impact on their credit scores of erroneous activity could take years to repair. Here’s how to know if you were affected and what to do next: Check if your data was breached.Equifax created a website consumers can check if their data was breached, www.equifaxsecurity2017.com. The company said it would offer a free year of service from its subsidiary, TrustedID, which monitors credit reports from Equifax as well as Experian EXPN, -1.38% and TransUnion TRU, -4.66% , as well as offering identity theft insurance and internet scanning for social security numbers. Equifax will also send direct mail notices to consumers whose credit card numbers or personal information were impacted. (The company did not immediately reply to a request for comment.) Customers should immediately freeze their accounts at all three credit bureaus, said Adam Levin, a consumer advocate and chairman of security firm CyberScout. This restricts access to your credit report, which helps prevent other credit card companies accessing it to open up new accounts.

The Weekly Perspective with David Morgan for September 15th, 2017

from The Morgan Report

David Morgan‘s weekly perspective for September 15th, 2017…

From Zerohedge, the most important chart in the world – the US Dollar. Penetrated the 94 level which is a big resistance point. Lower dollar prices ahead, but a short term small bounce is probably in the cards which, will pressure gold. The implications are tremendous. Higher profits for multi-nationals. The number of Americans living hand to mouth is astoundingly high. The middle class is getting wiped out here and abroad. It’s the elite vs. the lower class. Debt markets, the bond market, US debt has massive one day increase. Rates at 2.2%. What would happen if interest rates were allowed to rise to 5%? There’s no way the US gov’t can afford to allow rates to rise. At 5% interest payments would rise to $1 trillion. They’re not going higher. Those in the know will act accordingly. Gold, silver and precious metals will be the beneficiary. Printing wealth doesn’t and cannot work. Equity markets according to Charles Hugh Smith is that this time is different. It’s terribly bearish. Nothing has been fixed. The policy fixes have weakened the system.

John Rubino – Bad Economic Waters, COT Right Again

from Financial Survival Network

John Rubino notes that the stock market keeps going higher on bad economic news. How’s that supposed to work and can it keep going higher? Then in precious metals, the COT (commitment of traders) report flashed a bearish sign and right on schedule gold and silver have gone down. How long will it last for? Not too much longer, we would venture a guess. Especially with the upcoming Chinese Oil Contract that will be payable in gold. Things are heating up.

Brad Owens – The Truth About Benghazi

from Financial Survival Network

State Dept. asked embassy security firm to replace benghazi guards one week before attack… And then instructed them to remain silent. Brad Owens recounts that 11 days before the attack on the U.S. Benghazi compound in 2012, the State Department asked Torres Advanced Solutions, an embassy security contractor, to replace the guard force then protecting the facility because it was the compound by its current contractor. The attack came just as Torres was gearing up to move in and take over the task of guarding the facility. After the September 11th attacks destroyed the compound and killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, the State Department instructed Torres and associates not to reveal that the request to move in and take over had been made. In addition, the State Department demanded that Torres’s force be unarmed, just like the guard force then deployed. Torres objected and said that they planned to arm the guards anyway. The State Department also instructed them not to reveal the request that the guards be unarmed. None of these facts have been disclosed previously.

Fixing Room Echo and Improving Skype Quality (#19)

from Viral Podcasting

Just moved my studio once again. What a pain it can be. I can hook up the mixer and microphone and all the equipment within 15-20 minutes. But then comes the hard part, making your show sound as good as it was in your old studio. This was a real challenge in my new studio, because it had a lot of echo and it’s a very lively room. In addition, the Skype signal was constantly dropping and getting garbled. I even received several complaints from our listeners saying that the show’s audio quality had noticeably declined. What to do? I didn’t want to foam the place, which is the obvious solution. I hate the way it looks and it ruins the pain. I was watching an episode of the hit TV show The Profit. Marcus Lemonis invested in a firm Overtone Acoustics. They manufacture acoustic panels to reduce echo and help the sound profile of your room. I figured, probably won’t work but I’ll give it a try. I ordered 6 2’x4′ panels. They weigh about 7 pounds each and look like cloth panels. They’re stuffed with acoustic absorption material. I mounted them and the change was amazing. They’re not cheap at around $80 each, but well worth it. To fix the Skype issues, I connected an ethernet cable right from my computer to the WiFi router. Presto, no more Skype issues. Evidently, I had a misbehaved WiFi signal that was causing all the problems. I guess the answer is don’t move unless you absolutely have to. I should probably put together a moving check list, should I move again. Don’t forget to purchase my book, Viral Podcasting. Just click the link.

Danielle Park – End Game for the Buy Now, Pay Never Economy

from Financial Survival Network

Danielle Park had an interesting article on her site written by CNBC anchor Steve Sedgwick. He explores the concept of the Spend Now, Pay Never attitude that has swept the UK (and the US as well). Millions have leased shiny new cars and will never own them. They’ll never be paid off. This is a symptom of declining savings rates in many countries. Interesting turn of events. This story closely correlates with the fact that most of us concerning our personal finance, as in life, are our own worst enemies. We engage in long-term destructive behaviors for the sake of a short pleasure. In addition, we then look to correct a life time of failed financial planning by upping our appetite for risk, while being cheered on by the financial industry. A recipe for disaster.

Peter Schiff – Mother of All Financial Cyclones About to Make Landfall

from Financial Survival Network

Peter Schiff joined us to discuss the latest developments in the economic landscape. Contrary to MSM opinion, the crash of 2008 was only a precursor to what’s coming next. And unlike Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, there’s no hiding from it. When it hits, not if, the devastation to the financial system will be the equivalent of a Cat 5 making a direct hit on Wall Street. Time to prepare now before it’s too late. Gold, silver but not Bitcoin as it’s not worth the paper it’s not printed on.

The Forthcoming Global Crisis

by Alasdair MacLeod
Gold Money

The global economy is now in an expansionary phase, with bank credit being increasingly available for non-financial borrowers. This is always the prelude to the crisis phase of the credit cycle.

Most national economies are directly boosted by China, the important exception being America. This is confirmed by dollar weakness, which is expected to continue. The likely trigger for the crisis will be from the Eurozone, where the shift in monetary policy and the collapse in bond prices will be greatest. Importantly, we can put a tentative date on the crisis phase in the middle to second half of 2018, or early 2019 at the latest.

Bad & Good News on North Korea, Obama Wiretapped Trump, Economic Update

Greg Hunter’s Weekly News Wrap-Up for September 22nd, 2017

by Greg Hunter
USA Watchdog

There is bad news and good news about the tensions between North Korea and the U.S. First, the bad news. President Trump threatened to “destroy North Korea” if the country continues on its nuclear path and tests more ballistic missiles. North Korea says they will deal with President Trump “with fire.” Now, the good news. China has agreed to enforce stricter sanctions on North Korea (NK) through its banking system. The U.S. has called on China to cut off North Korea from doing business with China’s biggest banks. That doesn’t mean the problem is solved, but it is a huge step by China to curtail NK’s missile testing by cutting down on the flow of cash going into North Korea.

Remember when President Trump said that the Obama Administration “wiretapped” him in Trump Tower? CNN called Trump a “liar” and said his accusations were “baseless.” This week, CNN, among other mainstream media outlets, had to eat their words and admit that Donald Trump and Trump Tower in New York City were, in fact, wiretapped before and after the election. The so-called Russian collusion story falls apart a little more every day, and that is also good news.

QT1 Will Lead to QE4

There are only three members of the Board of Governors who matter: Janet Yellen, Stan Fischer and Lael Brainard. There is only one Regional Reserve Bank President who matters: Bill Dudley of New York. Yellen, Fischer, Brainard and Dudley are the “Big Four.”

They are the only ones worth listening to. They call the shots. The don’t like dots. Everything else is noise.

Here’s the model the Big Four actually use:

1. Raise rates 0.25% every March, June, September and December until rates reach 3.0% in late 2019.

The Demise of the Dollar: Don’t Hold Your Breath

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

So let’s look at currency flows, reserves and debt.

The demise of the U.S. dollar has been a staple of the financial media for decades. The latest buzzword making the rounds is de-dollarization, which describes the move away from USD in global payments.

De-dollarization is often equated with the demise of the dollar, but this reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of the currency markets.

Look, I get it: the U.S. dollar arouses emotions because it’s widely seen as one of the more potent tools of U.S. hegemony. Lots of people are hoping for the demise of the dollar, for all sorts of reasons that have nothing to do with the actual flow of currencies or the role of currencies in the global economy and foreign exchange (FX) markets.

by Chris Waltzek

Andy Schectman of Miles Franklin Institute (28 year old firm with $6 billion in precious metals sales) outlines the hurdles to purchasing / storing PMs and how to overcome them. His firm requires mandatory background checks and a large surety bond to protect clients from potential counterparty risk, one of the only companies in the industry to do so. The Miles Franklin storage program involves Canadian Brinks security, without percentage of value fees, which shields clients from large price increases, i.e., storage fees are fixed. Plus, in another first of its kind, they now offer a fully insured Brinks safe deposit box in Vancouver and Toronto, one key boxes where clients hold the only key / spare with access 24/7 or FedEx air delivery.

My Views Regarding Prospects for Gold

by Hugo Salinas Price
Plata.com.mx

The Chinese have announced that they have perfected a scheme, to be launched formally in the market by the end of the year, by means of which exporters of oil to China will accept the Chinese currency, the Yuan, in payment for the oil; for this deal, the Chinese have added an incentive: the Yuan received by the oil exporters will be exchangeable for gold. This gold will be “sourced” i.e. “purchased” outside of China, for the oil exporters.

Thus, the oil exporters’ Yuan will be offered in payment to the so-called “Bullion Banks” in London, who will provide the gold in exchange for Yuan.

We know that this much is part of the plan.

What follows is my understanding of the situation:

How the US Became a Warmonger Police State

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
PaulCraigRoberts.org

Professor David Ray Griffin is a tenacious person. He has written a number of carefully researched books that demonstrate the extraordinary shortcomings in the official account of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the subsequent anthrax attack. He has provided the mountains of evidence completely ignored by the US government’s account and the presstitute media.

In his recently published latest book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World , Professor Griffin demonstrates how 9/11 was used by the Zionist Neoconservatives, the Cheney/Bush regime, and the military/security complex with the complicity of Congress and the US media to create Islamophobia among the American public in order to launch wars of aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and provinces of Pakistan with Iran in the crosshairs.
