John Rubino – Everyone Will Know Everything Eventually

from Financial Survival Network

John Rubino joined us again… The latest Wikileaks document dump is proving particularly disastrous to the democrats. It has forced party chair Deborah Wasserman Schultz to resign and has shown devious alignment between the media and the party. Also disclosed, potential appointments to wealthy donors – I’m shocked!

Jason Hartman’s Timeless “Refi ‘Till You Die” Investment Strategy

from The Creating Wealth Show

One of the core concepts that we communicate to our investors is to “Refi Till Ya Die” with your rental property portfolio. While this description may sound a bit snarky, it is a very powerful strategy for multiplying your wealth over the long-term. The most unique part of this strategy is that it stands in stark contrast to the popular strategy of ‘flipping’ properties by buying and quickly re-selling them for quick profits. The strategy that we recommend is the exact opposite of this. At Platinum Properties, we advocate buying and holding prudent rental properties over a long period of time. This enables investors to build real wealth, instead of constantly churning properties. (And creating taxable gains) There is another very powerful force behind our strategy of buy and hold investing. That power comes when the rents and value of your property increase over time. Typically, an investment property will start with low cash flow, and will grow in profitability as tenant rents are increased. This increase in revenues carries with it a tremendous tool for growing your wealth. The way that you employ this tool is to refinance your property for more than your original purchase price, based on the increased cash flow. This will allow you to re-invest the amount of your loan that exceeds the original purchase price. And here comes the kicker . . . these net proceeds are not taxed!!!

Danielle Park – Return of Glass–Steagall

from Financial Survival Network

Danielle Park says that not much usually comes of presidential conventions, but perhaps this time will be different. Donald Trump has called for the re-imposition of the Glass-Steagall Act. That was the Depression Era law which split commercial banking from investment banking. It helped keep the financial sector safe for nearly 60 years. During the Clinton Admin, it was done away with and we all know what happened next. Now we have Dodd-Frank, which has done absolutely nothing to prevent another financial crisis. While it has imposed certain controls upon the big banks, the Too Big To Fails keep getting ever bigger, virtually insuring the next crisis is even larger. Glass-Steagall is exactly what’s needed now and Trump’s plan is a major step in the right direction.

Trevor Loudon – When Freedom Dies in the US it Dies All Over

from Financial Survival Network

Trevor Loudon says that the United States was an accident of history. However, it led to an unprecedented expansion of individual rights and liberty never before seen in the history of man. Now it’s all in jeopardy. The collectivists are winning the battle, opening the way for China, Russia and the Islamists to destroy freedom. Never before has freedom’s grip hung so tenuously.

Peter Schiff – All Coming to Pass as Peter Said it Would

from Financial Survival Network

Peter Schiff and I have been speaking for 5 years now. We’re seeing state sponsored civil unrest. 2016 is the beginning of the process that Peter has been warning of. People have been distracted by the bubble that the Fed blew. Bernanke was the hero. However, the reality is that everything that was done actually made the problems much worse and now we’re heading for a much worse disaster for which there are no bail-outs. There is no riding out this disaster.

Donald Trump Has Two New Nicknames For Hillary Clinton…

by Mac Slavo
SHTF Plan

For months Donald Trump has bestowed the “Crooked Hillary” moniker upon the Democratic Presidential candidate with what appear to be very damaging results to her credibility and honesty.

Always one to entertain, and often without a script, Trump has a couple of new nicknames he recently threw into the mix.

First, knowing how effective the label was when applied to Jeb! Bush, Trump referred to Hillary as not just “low energy,” but noted that she is a “napper” who simply doesn’t have the ability to deal with the nation’s pressing issues:

Companies Have a $10 Trillion Bill That is Coming Due

by Jeff Cox
CNBC.com

The corporate debt pile is continuing to pile up, with a $10 trillion bill coming due over the next several years.

That’s how much of the $51 trillion in global company IOUs is maturing between now and 2021, according to data from S&P Global Ratings, which warns of potential dangers ahead.

“In recent years, credit conditions have been largely favorable, and corporate issuers have actively issued record levels of debt, much of which has been used to refinance existing debt, lower funding costs, and extend maturities,” the agency said in a report. “Funding conditions began tightening last year as falling commodity prices and volatile equity markets contributed to investor unease and a flight to quality.”

Did The DNC Hire Actors (At Below Minimum Wage) To Work At The Convention?

from Zero Hedge

Great news… The Democrats are ‘creating jobs.”

Following the exposure of a fake Trump job advertisement designed by The DNC to embarrass Trump, it is interesting that a Craigslist ad calling for “Actors Needed for National Convention” has surfaced…

[…] Whether the ad is real or fake is unclear, but the text suggests below minimum wage compensation (7-plus hours work for $50) and the number of walkouts from the Convention indicates perhaps a need for cheering happy seat-fillers…

Why MainStreet Isn’t Buying Obama’s Economic Story

by Lance Roberts
Real Investment Advice

Last night, President Obama took the stage at the Democratic National Convention to throw his support to Hillary Clinton in her bid for the Presidency. He also took the opportunity to take a victory lap for his economic achievements while in office.

With the 2016 Presidential Election fast approaching, this was one of the final chances the President will have to try and divert attention away from Hillary’s “trustworthiness” problem following continued revelations surrounding Benghazi, email scandals and the Clinton Foundation which is now under investigation by the IRS.

The American Dream Plunges to Record Low

by Wolf Richter
Wolf Street

Consequence of turning “home” into a financialized “asset class.”

Something happened on the way when the concept of “home” transmogrified to a financialized “asset class” whose price the government, the Fed, and the industry conspire to inflate into the blue sky, no matter what the consequences. And here are the consequences.

The Census Bureau, which has been tracking homeownership rates in its data series going back to 1965 on a non-seasonally adjusted basis, just reported that in the second quarter 2016, the homeownership rate dropped to 62.9%, the lowest point on record.

The Great Apple Revenue Illusion

by Paul Mampilly
The Sovereign Investor

Shares of Apple experienced their second-biggest one-day rally on Wednesday after the company announced its quarterly results. Most people looking at the stock’s soaring price believe everything here is awesome.

However, what I see is blatant manipulation by Apple’s management and market insiders.

Most people who casually follow the market don’t understand the games played by companies and market insiders.

You see, even though Apple stock closed up 6.5% yesterday, the only thing that really matters for the company is in steep decline…

Low Interest Rates a Growing Threat to Social Security

Retirement fund could be depleted absent big changes, experts say

by Harvard Zhang
Market Watch

WASHINGTON — Record-low yields on U.S. Treasurys endanger the long-run solvency of Social Security and the future retirement benefits for younger generations of Americans, economists say.

Newer Treasury bonds held by the trust fund have been earning less for years, the consequence of sluggish economic growth and persistently low interest rates. The Federal Reserve has kept its benchmark short-term rate at or near zero for more than seven years in an effort to stimulate the economy.

Even with the Fed’s extended easy-money approach, the U.S. economy has not grown fast enough to generate the necessary tax income to help fund all its responsibilities, including Social Security for current and future retirees.

Thomas Frank Explains Why Hillary May Talk Reform, but Will Never Be a Reformer

from Jesse’s Café Américain

[…] The DNC is an arm of the Clinton wing of the Democratic Party.

Hillary is a neo-liberal on economics, and a neo-con on foreign policy.

She and her crowd are masters of spin and the management of popular perception.

I think Frank and Scheer are being far too kind.

The politicians and bankers know exactly what they are doing.
