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.

Trump’s Tightening Legal Noose

by Andrew P. Napolitano
LewRockwell.com

The Donald Trump I know is a smart guy who often thinks a few steps ahead of those whose will he is trying to bend. But I lately wonder whether he grasps the gravity of the legal peril that is beginning to show up around him. In the past week, we learned of an unfiltered public confession of frustration and weakness among his lawyers and we learned that his former chief confidant and campaign manager is about to be indicted. This is very bad news for President Trump.

Here is the back story.

Trump has hired two experienced Washington criminal defense lawyers to represent him in dealings with Robert Mueller, the independent special counsel who is investigating what connection, if any, there was between Trump’s presidential campaign and elements of the Russian government. Mueller has apparently struck a raw nerve in the West Wing of the White House, where Trump’s criminal defense lawyers and the White House legal counsel all work.

Loving Our Debt-Serfdom: Our Neofeudal Status Quo

by Charles Hugh Smith
Of Two Minds

Democracy (i.e. political influence) and ownership of productive assets are the exclusive domains of the New Aristocracy.

I have often used the words neoliberal, neocolonial and neofeudal to describe our socio-economic-political status quo. Here are my shorthand descriptions of each term:

1. Neoliberal: the commoditization / financialization of every asset, input (such as labor) and output of the economy; the privatization of the public commons, and the maximizing of private profits while costs and losses are socialized, i.e. transferred to the taxpayers.

2. Neocolonial: the exploitation of the domestic populace using the same debt-servitude model used to subjugate, control and extract profits from overseas populations.

How Many of 2017’s Retail Bankruptcies Were Caused by Private-Equity’s Greed?

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

According to S&P Global Market Intelligence, there have been 35 retail bankruptcies this year, almost double the 18 retail bankruptcies of last year. The filing by Toys ‘R’ Us this week was the latest.

What many of these retailers have in common is that they were taken private in leveraged buyouts (LBOs) by private equity (PE) firms. Toys ‘R’ Us, Payless ShoeSource, The Limited, Wet Seal, Gymboree Corp., rue21, and True Religion Apparel were all LBOs. Gander Mountain can also be included in this list if you reach back to its 1984 LBO. Far too many LBOs are simply asset stripping operations by Wall Street vultures who load the company with enormous debt, then asset strip the cash from the company by paying themselves obscene special dividends and management fees.

Most Elevated Global Assets Prices Ever in History – What’s Your Move?

by Danielle Park
Juggling Dynamite

Deutsche Bank strategists are out with a new report stating the obvious: “We’re in a period of very elevated global asset prices – possibly the most elevated in aggregate through history” and there are “a number of areas of the global financial system that look at extreme levels.”

Unless one is in complete denial, and/or paid to keep selling risky, low yielding assets to others at every price–there is simply no denying the clear and present dangers at hand:

“This includes valuations in many asset classes, the incredibly unique size of central bank balance sheets, debt levels, multi-century all-time lows in interest rates and even the level of potentially game changing populist political support around the globe. If there is a crisis relatively soon (within the next 2-3 years), it would be hard to look at these variables and say that there was no way of spotting them.”

Is Identity Politics Brewing a Holocaust?

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
PaulCraigRoberts.org

Signs of American collapse are everywhere. Apparently no one notices. The world continues to vote with the US in the UN. When even Russia and China serve as handmaidens to US foreign policy by voting with Washington against North Korea, it appears that the image of America as the exceptional and indispensable country is a propaganda success even among Washington’s most threatened enemies. When Russia and China follow Washington’s lead, it shows the world that there is no alternative to Washington’s leadership.
