Lee Shultz – Siri and Alexa for President on the AI Party

from Financial Survival Network

Lee Shultz, a fellow recovering attorney and FSN community member came back on the show. We discussed the Mueller report, the emerging Democrat 2020 presidential field and the current state of politics. We both agree that Attorney General William Barr. He’s one intimidating dude. Notice how when he’s testifying before Congress, he’s treated with kit gloves. A Representative will ask a disrespectful question, Barr will pause for 5 seconds and then give an answer. At that point the Rep is flummoxed and backs off. It’s fun to watch.

Jordan Roy-Byrne – Gold Still Not Going Up

from Financial Survival Network

As Jordan Roy-Byrne explained to us last month, we’re still not seeing higher highs and higher lows in the gold price. His opinion was again confirmed. Every time gold approaches $1350 per ounce, there’s a dramatic pullback. Until gold breaks this key resistance point, with conviction, not much is going to happen. Unfortunately, until further notice, precious metals investors are in a waiting game.

Judge John H. Wilson – Mueller and His Pack of Lies

from Financial Survival Network

Judge John H. Wilson, first time guest, tells us that After almost two years of investigation, the report of Special Counsel Robert Mueller concerning whether the President and his campaign staff colluded with Russian agents during the 2016 election was finally provided to the US Attorney General’s Office late in March. The Attorney General, William Barr, immediately released a short summary of the Report. In that letter, the Attorney General made two significant points: 1) ” The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” and 2) “the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense.” Since the issuance of the Barr letter, President Trump and his supporters have declared “total and complete exoneration,” while some Democrats, like Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) have maintained that “undoubtedly there was collusion” regardless of what the Mueller Report states. Rather than rely upon the letter issued by AG Barr, many in Congress are demanding the release of the entire report issued by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.A controversy has now arisen over whether or not the entirety of the Mueller Report can be made public. As of this writing, the AG’s staff is reviewing the Report, and redacting material that is based upon Grand Jury testimony. These redactions are necessary under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(E), which, as AG Barr states, “generally limits disclosure of certain grand jury information in a criminal investigation and prosecution. Employing this logic a few steps further, if we assume that most members of Congress are aware of the law, and of the facts outlined above, then it becomes clear that the calls by Democratic lawmakers for the production of the “entire” Mueller Report, including the Grand Jury materials, is nothing more than political theater, and nothing less than bad faith.

Jayant Bhandari – All in for Benevolent Dictatorship

from Financial Survival Network

First time guest Jayant Bhandari believes that democracy is a flawed system that has failed to bring people out of poverty in the last century. Rather, authoritarian benevolent regimes, such as China, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc., have been the wealth building leaders. Not that we’re unmindful of democracy’s flaws, but we tend to subscribe to the Churchillian view that “Democracy is the worst system in the world, except for all the rest!” And perhaps at present our participatory democracy is a chimera, but Donald Trump is president and that says something. Jayant sees continued growth in East Asia and economic leadership. And he believes he’s freer in East Asia than elsewhere and that most people don’t really care about government and just want to be left alone. Tell that to the thousands of victims of the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

Danielle Park – Luxury Housing a Bust

from Financial Survival Network

Danielle Park returns… In places like Greenwich, CT, New York City, Vancouver and around the world, it looks like there’s a high-end housing bust taking place. It’s partly a demographic issue, where older people are downsizing want to cash in on their expensive housing. The hoped for resale market is younger generations and they’re just not stepping up to the plate. This underscores the danger or easy credit. It’s great when you’re acquiring luxury properties, but not so much when you go to sell. Expect such declines to increase in the future.

Aaron Clarey – Millennial Housing Quirks

from Financial Survival Network

Our good friend, Aaron Clarey, a/k/a Captain Capitalism sold his house and is living in a Millennial enclave. Gone are spacious units. Instead he’s enjoying a plethora of amenities that he never wanted. There’s two gyms, social programs, a large pool, a movie theater and a bunch of other things he could do without. Aaron says this type of development is thriving because most Millennials will never own their own home and this is as close as they’ll get to the American Dream. How sad.

Round Table with Gordon T. Long & Charles Hugh Smith

from Financial Survival Network

Financial experts Gordon T. Long and Charles Hugh Smith join FSN for a discussion on what went/is going wrong with the American Experiment. Obviously among the culprits, corrupt government, corporatization, financialization and inflation to name just a few. The solution is very straight forward and simple. Go back to localization, bring back the institutions that once made America great. The mom and pop stores and merchants who had a connection with their communities. The bankers who lived amongst their borrowers. Effectively, it’s a repersonalization of business as we know it.

It’s 2016 All Over Again. Or Is It?

The fate of the global economy rides on the answer

by Chris Martenson
Chris Martenson’s Peak Prosperity

Conditions today mirror 2016, when growing weakness in the global economy and wobbling financial markets caused the world’s central banks to absolutely freak out.

They responded by dumping more thin-air money into the system than ever before in history. And it worked (for them at least). Economic growth stabilized; and the prices of stocks, real estate, and other assets enjoyed another three-year joyride.

Similarly, as things started getting shaky in late 2018, the same playbook was deployed. And again, we’ve seen stocks rocket upwards ever since.

But will the strategy actually work this time? It’s unclear. And a lot is riding on the answer.

Dems’ Rejection of Mueller’s Exoneration of Trump Endangers our Republic

by Karin McQuillan
American Thinker

Old pols like Pelosi and Schumer and Biden surely knew the accusations that President Trump was a traitor, working hand in glove with Putin, were absurd and unfounded. In throwing their lot in with those accusing Donald Trump of being a traitor, they betrayed their country, their voters, the rule of law, and the foundations of our republican form of government.

Their rejection of the Mueller exoneration was fore-ordained. They cannot and will not return to normal politics.

The information that the Russia collusion investigation was based on Team Hillary’s oppo research was soon known. We quickly learned that Comey hid that vital information from the FISA court. We learned that the Obama DOJ and intelligence agencies went beyond eavesdropping, to blatant entrapment efforts. Revelations on the dirty work of Susan Rice, Clapper and Brennan, Rosenstein, followed swiftly.

The World Economy is a Pyramid Scheme, Steven Chu Says

by Jeff McMahon

The world economy is based on ever-increasing population, said Nobel laureate Steven Chu, a scheme that economists don’t talk about and that governments won’t face, a scheme that makes sustainability impossible and that is likely to eventually fail.

“The world needs a new model of how to generate a rising standard of living that’s not dependent on a pyramid scheme,” Chu said at the University of Chicago.

Chu didn’t specify what that new model would look like, but he offered a solution to the population growth the current one relies on.

“Increased economic prosperity and all economic models supported by governments and global competitors are based on having more young people, workers, than older people,” Chu said.

America’s Forced Financial Flight: Fleeing Unaffordable and Dysfunctional Cities

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

The forced flight from unaffordable and dysfunctional urban regions is as yet a trickle, but watch what happens when a recession causes widespread layoffs in high-wage sectors.

For hundreds of years, rural poverty has driven people to urban areas: cities offer paying work and abundant opportunities to get ahead, and these financial incentives have transformed the human populace from largely rural to largely urban in the developed world.

Now a new set of financial pressures are forcing a migration of urban residents out of cities which are increasingly unaffordable and dysfunctional. As highly paid skilled workers and global capital have flooded into high-job-growth regions, living costs and the costs of doing business have skyrocketed: where not too long ago $1,000 a month would secure a modest one-bedroom apartment in major urban job centers, now it takes $2,000 or $3,000 a month to rent a modest flat.
