Bill Tatro – Verdict is Still Out on Trump

from Financial Survival Network

Bill Tatro is skeptical about Trump’s ability to get his agenda through Congress. It’s not like running your own real estate empire. You’ve got to get people to do things for you and vice versa. Is Trump going back on TPP? What about all these jobs, are they real? And Syria is a mess and the chem attack could very well be a false flag. And look who Trump is taking advice from, his liberal son-in-law. Bannon looks like he’s on the outs. But it’s early and you never know what could happen next.

George Matheis – How to Defend Against Snowflake Riots

from Financial Survival Network

George Matheis Jr. has trained policemen and swat teams, so when he speaks I listen. There’s been a recent outbreak of snowflake riots. They block highways and often attack conservatives at random. George explains that you have the advantage as long as your car is moving. Keep adequate distance between yourself and the vehicle ahead, which will give you a way out. We talked about tactical pens. George favors carrying a metal pen that doesn’t look tactical. That way you can easily go through airports hassle free. The key is to always have a plan and be aware of your situation–situational awareness.

Be Authentic – Always Be Yourself! (#3)

from Viral Podcasting

This seems so obvious I almost hesitated to bother with it, and yet there’s so many people out there doing podcasts and being inauthentic. Like myself, many of you grew up in the 1970’s with the crazy, zaney radio guy. You know the voice. It’s as fake as a three dollar bill. There’s just no room for it in our society today. And yet so many people try to emulate it and they succeed and thereby fail. Don’t be something you’re not and don’t be somebody you aren’t. Proudly admit your faults and your audience will bond with you. Of course keep it appropriate at all times and never admit to a felony, unless of course the statute of limitations has run. But you get the point.

Wayne Allyn Root – Trump is Winning Big

from Financial Survival Network

Wayne Allyn Root joined us today. He believes that Trump’s first 100 days have been a resounding success. He cautions not to believe the popularity polls as they are the same organizations who were shocked at Hillary Clinton’s resounding loss. They just don’t learn. Trump’s had major victories in regulatory roll back, immigration enforcement and national defense. Wayne thinks that the Obamacare repeal effort was a temporary setback that will soon be corrected. The snowflakes will just have to learn how to adapt to the new paradigm.

David Scranton – An Ounce of Stock Market Prevention

from Financial Survival Network

One of the nation’s most successful and respected independent financial advisors, David Scranton has been specializing in the universe of income-generating savings and investment strategies for over 15 years. Prior to that, he followed a typical business model based heavily on stock market-based investment strategies. But in late 1999, Scranton’s knowledge of stock market history enabled him to foresee the coming 2000 stock market collapse and the onset of a new 20-plus year secular bear market cycle. Since changing his business model, Scranton has built a thriving personal practice based on “defensive” income-based financial strategies designed to help protect clients from the dramatic stock market fluctuations and economic uncertainties of the past 15 years. He’s also taught hundreds of advisors nationwide how to do the same for their clients.

from The Morgan Report

David Morgan’s thoughts for this week… Rates are down. Stocks are down. Gold is up to a 5 month high. Base metals are up for the year. Gold is up 12% and silver is up 16.6%.

Distribution patterns appear to show market weakness. Iron ore futures are down in China. Is it a trend? David thinks yes. Overall global economic indexes show weakening. War? Check out David’s take on it.

Chris Martenson – Prepare, Prepare, Prepare!

from Financial Survival Network

Chris Martenson joined us today for a look at the gathering war clouds. He believes that Trump has gone to the dark side, after the Syrian Attack, the Afghan MOAB and the North Korean show down. Time to become a free-thinking critical-thinker. There are no systemic solutions, only personal ones. The sooner we all realize it the better. Let’s welcome the change instead of fearing it.

Bix Weir – Where to Start?

from Financial Survival Network

Bix Weir returns to the program… We all think about the destruction of the financial system, which will no doubt lead to war. The Bad Guys are being thrown out, i.e., the Military Industrial Complex. They’re playing out a secret agenda behind the scenes. Trump hasn’t gone to the dark side. The tide has changed. No one is saying that Trump is an agent of Putin anymore. Trump turned the cards on them.

Michael Stumo – Trump Trade Too Soon to Tell

from Financial Survival Network

Michael Stumo recalls that one of Donald Trump’s major issues raised during his run for president was to reform the trading policies of the US’s major trading partners. Overtime, the US has lost jobs and prosperity to countries that provide protectionist advantages to their local industries, such as Japan, Korean and China. While nothing definitive has yet happened, Michael believes that Trump is on the right track. Present diversions with the North Korean situation are making it a little difficult to focus on the US-China trade arrangements, but clearly it was discussed in the recent meeting between Trump and Chinese President Xi. Michael favors some type of border adjust tax that would be levied on important and would replace the FICA Payroll Tax. What a great idea.

Joe Messina – We Need to Kill California to Save It

from Financial Survival Network

Our old friend Joe Messina says that it’s no secret that the state of California has been in a downward spiral for many years. From crumbling dams and infrastructure to tax-crazed ideologues driving the producers from the state. There’s no hope which is why as was said during the Vietnam War, “We had to kill the village to save it.” California is in exactly the same position, it must be killed to save it. Its pension plan is drastically underfunded, its governor has long since detached from reality and no one is facing up to its long/short term problems. A major fiscal disaster is all that can save the once Golden State.

John Rubino – Is Everything Now Too Big To Fail?

from Financial Survival Network

John Rubino returns… News from China says that the world’s largest aluminum producer, China Hongqiao Group, is on the brink of insolvency. This is a company that’s nearly twice the size of Alcoa. It’s been showing amazing growth and profit numbers for year. Now it turns out that they’ve been relying upon Chicom accounting and the profits were fraudulent and illusory. The company is begging for a government bailout to avoid civil unrest. Have we reached the point where everything is too big to fail? Perhaps, but then eventually the party that bails everyone out will wind up failing as well. Get set and buckle your seatbelt for that day may soon be upon us. Especially if Marine LePen triumphs in the upcoming French elections. The same people who said Brexit couldn’t pass and were all in a lather about President Hillary Clinton are saying LePen’s an outside long shot at best. But the communist party candidate has been rising in the polls as well, now sitting at 19%. This is shaping up to be a battle of the extremists and whomever wins will immediately go after the Euro.

Ivan Eland – Difficult Korean Options

from Financial Survival Network

Ivan Eland asks how do you deal with an erratic dictator who has nukes? As with so many other issues in China is the key. Ivan believes that China has a built-in incentive to help remove the North Korean threat. Trump has changed his tune on China trade, and in return he’s getting cooperation. China’s massing of troops on the NK border and reducing trade and rejecting coal shipments. Is Kim Jong Un crazy or crazy like a fox? His people are starving and his economy is bankrupt. The next move is China’s.

James Walchuck – Zinc One On The Move!

from Financial Survival Network

Jim Walchuck of Zinc One Resources joined us today to discuss the company’s amazing prospects. The Company just started up in 2016. They are rapidly acquiring companies and getting ready to explore and develop promising projects. Worldwide, there’s only 29 days of zinc inventory. New sources must be developed and there’s very few companies as well positioned as Zinc One to do the job. Zinc is vital for many different industrial processes, such as the manufacture of galvanized steel. The opportunity for the Zinc One is clear. Seasoned management is the key. Jim, a life long mining engineer, has designed and developed mines in the past and is quite excited by his new company’s future. We wish him the best and have high hopes for this new FSN Sponsor.

Does America Have a Technology Platform Monopoly Problem?

by Michael Krieger
Liberty Blitzkrieg

Last week, I wrote a post titled, What Can an Overhyped Silicon Valley Juice Company Tell Us About the U.S. Economy. Here’s how I ended the piece:

Finally, and perhaps most concerning, look at a couple of the entities that helped fund Juciero to the tune of $120 million: Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Alphabet Inc. (the parent company of Google). These are large, sophisticated players and they bought into this thing. From what I can tell, they were mesmerized by the fact the machine looked like and iPhone, connects to the internet, and was headquartered in San Francisco. Either that, or they knew the whole thing was a marketing scheme designed to trick morons into spending an enormous sum of money for the right to buy expensive juice packets that could probably be emptied just fine using a $20 machine.

Can Macron Save the World? Save France?

The markets appear giddy today over the election prospects of Emanuel Macron in France.

Equities are up along with bond yields. Gold is down. The day is still young though.

Macron won round one of the French election yesterday and will square off against Marine Le Pen in round two on May 7. He is widely expected to win round two, becoming the next president of France.

What Does Steve Bannon Want?

by Hunter Lewis
Mises.org

“What Does Steve Bannon Want?” is the title of an article by Christopher Caldwell (senior editor at the “conservative” Weekly Standard), written for the New York Times on February 26, 2017.

Mr. Caldwell gets to the essence of it when he writes: “Steve Bannon … has … the same idea that tea party activists have: a class of regulators in the government has robbed Americans of their democratic prerogatives. That class now constitutes an ‘administrative state’ that operates to empower itself and enrich its crony-capitalist allies.” He also notes that Bannon thinks that “capitalism ought to rest on a Judeo-Christian foundation.”

Then Caldwell goes off the tracks. “ Free-market thinking has swallowed the [Republican] party whole, its onetime preoccupation with Judeo-Christian culture … along with it. A business orientation was what donors wanted. But voters never more than tolerated it. It was Pat Buchanan who in his 1992 run for president first called on Republicans to value jobs and communities over profits.”

The French Elections & Socrates

by Martin Armstrong
Armstrong Economics

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong, I saved your article from November 25th last year where your computer forecast the collapse of mainstream politics. Macron was not even in the picture back then. Have you recalculated now that all the parties collapsed and it is Macron v Le Pen?

ANSWER: I am very familiar with France. I was supposed to debate Michel Sapin, the Finance Minister of France on national TV. He backed out.

[…] As you can see in that article, the only way to approach this is to look at the philosophy rather than the party since we were showing that the parties would collapse as they have done. I concluded that article writing:

Selling the Golden Goose

by Jeff Thomas
International Man

Venezuela is a naturally rich nation. It’s ranked seventh worldwide for biodiversity and has the world’s largest reserves of oil. This is a country that deserves, more than most, to thrive. However, as in all countries, it passes through economic cycles and, when on a downward curve, would-be leaders take the opportunity to claim that the “greedy rich” have sent the economy into a tailspin (which can sometimes be the case) and that the solution is to adopt a collectivist approach to governance.

In 1989, Venezuela was experiencing a downturn. Riots broke out, followed by two attempted coups in 1992. The following year, President Pérez was impeached for embezzlement of public funds and the red carpet of opportunity was rolled out for the charismatic former coup participant Hugo Chávez.

Long-Term Price Targets Are Meaningless

by Steve Saville, The Speculative Investor
Gold Seek

Many commentators like to speculate on where the dollar-denominated gold price is ultimately headed. Some claim that it is destined to reach $3,000/oz, others claim that it won’t top until it hits at least $5,000/oz, and some even forecast an eventual rise to as high as $50,000/oz. All of these forecasts are meaningless.

Long-term dollar-denominated price targets are meaningless because a) they fail to account for — and cannot possibly account for, since it is unknowable — the future change in the dollar’s purchasing power, and b) the only reason a rational person invests is to preserve or increase purchasing power. To further explain by way of a hypothetical example, assume that five years from now a US dollar buys only 20% of the everyday goods and services that it buys today. In this case, the US$ gold price will have to be around $6,500/oz just to maintain its current value in purchasing power terms.

How Sane Cannabis Policy is Blocked by the Machine

by Daily Bell Staff
The Daily Bell

The federal ban on cannabis is one of those policies which make living in Americ feel like the dark ages. It wastes tax dollars with enforcement, and it tramples states’ rights to make their own laws.

Worst of all though, it threatens legal businesses in states which are pot friendly and threatens the life, liberty, and property of countless individuals who harm no one while using marijuana for recreational or medical purposes.

That’s why it is an exciting development to see Congress taking steps towards solving these issues. But it’s not all cut and dry yet. A provision expires next week that needs to be renewed in order to:

9/11 Destroyed America

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
PaulCraigRoberts.org

The events on September 11, 2001, changed the world. It was the excuse for the US government to launch military attacks on seven Middle Eastern countries, causing civilian casualties in the millions and sending waves of Muslim refugees into the Western world. The US government wasted trillions of dollars destroying countries and murdering women and children, while public infrastructure in the US deteriorated, Americans’ homes were foreclosed, and American health needs went unattended. 9/11 was also the excuse for the destruction of the protection that the US Constitution provided to ensure the liberty of the American citizen. Today no American has the protection of the civil liberty that the Constitution guarantees.
