Rank #1: Bill Whittle - Liberalism Equals Failure #4281

Podcast cover
Read more
Why are the schools so awful and failing to educate our children? It's by design according to noted conservative Bill Whittle. We've attempted to insulate our children from their greatest teacher, failure. And the results have been predictable, complete and utter failure. Unfortunately for humanity, there's no other way to build self-esteem and learn. It's just the way we're wired. Same thing with our cities. For nearly a century they have become petty dishes of liberal experimentation. And the result is universal failure. How long before we wake up?

Stewart Thompson has been a student of markets since he was a child. He believes that to prosper, you need to follow the banksters. They’re usually right and they have a completely different perspective on the markets than the public. Stewart has called numerous market tops and bottoms, such as $50 silver and Bitcoin’s peak. He believes that much higher inflation/consumer prices are on their way and that it will take the investing public by surprise. A lot of other good info in the interview.

Rank #3: Impeachment Blues - Joel Skousen #4565

Podcast cover
Read more
Joel has always been in favor of Trump but believes that he’s ill-equipped for the battle. Every law enforcement organization in the nation is connected to the deep state. It’s a case a whack-a-mole. Every time he fires a deep stater, he winds up hiring another. He has to rely upon the advice of main stream republicans who cannot be trusted. The key is whether the deep staters in the Senate will openly vote in favor of the removal. Joel believes that Trump has done nothing illegal. Biden isn’t immune from investigation and Trump had every right to request it. Not to mention that there’s a treaty with Ukraine that requires investigation of wrong doing. What do we do with Donald Trump? He has good instincts but bad morals and not much else. The deep state keeps getting its way. Joel is worried that after Trump the US will never have another republican president. Just look at the state of Virginia which is now solid blue thanks to illegal immigration.

The government only knows one way, 1) if in a crisis, print money. 2) If the crisis continues, print more and more. If that doesn't work go back to step one. We all know that the US Dollar and fiat currencies are doomed. But no doubt they'll create a new fiat currency to replace the old one. It's just the way they roll. The Dollar is dead, long live the Dollar!

Making money in the market comes down to buying securities at the right time and selling them after they've gone up and before they've gone down. While this seems self-evident, why is it so hard to do? Well emotions play a large part in it. The consistent winners in this space are those who have a proven strategy and iron-clad discipline. But we're not born knowing how to do it. We've got to learn from somebody and Allison Ostrander has been playing the game for more than 10 years. You can learn her secrets.

Podcast cover

Ivan Bebek, CEO of Auryn Resources is having trouble sleeping at night. That's because he's personally convinced that he's on the brink of a major discovery at the Sombrero Project in Peru. Recent rock sampling has only added to his conviction and has made him even more positive. Ivan has also invested big in artificial intelligence (AI) for the Company's Committee Bay Project. While Auryn's team of geologists is top-tier, the addition of AI has further focused and directed their efforts to the point that they're on the cusp of a major discovery, which would mark a revolution in exploration. Hopefully, Ivan's sleep deprived nights will soon be a thing of the past.

Rank #9: Triple Lutz Report #463 - Kavanaugh is What Winning Looks Like

Podcast cover
Read more
Many month ago we advised you that the Trump admin would be like no other in history. We weren't kidding. Every day we see more and more results of the workaholic 'n chief. It's hard to beat someone who's working 10 more hours per day than you are. Trump fought the fight needed to get Kavanaugh confirmed and the rest will soon be history. And he's just getting started. The libs are stuck in their bubble and won't know what happened to them until their party has been completely destroyed. What's next? 

Today is Cannabis legalization day in Canada. Dozens of other countries are seriously looking at legalizing medical and recreational use. It's turning into a major bandwagon effect. Even Greece is looking to get in on the tax boost. No one knows where it will stop, but it's certain that it's going to be a global multi-billion dollar industry. Just wait and see. 

Much more to hear about on the show.

While we can't read the exact future in the Commitment of Traders Report or COT, there are some interesting tea leaves available for your viewing pleasure. The speculators or specs have just about given up. And most importantly they're almost always wrong.

Couple this with a peaking economy that can't keep growing forever and the result becomes obvious. Now is not the time to give up.

Podcast cover

It's no secret that China has been acquiring vast sums of gold over the past decade. Jeff Clark believes that when the true extent of their acquisitions is revealed it will lead to a major rally in precious metals prices. The Chinese have also been busy buying up and investing in mining projects around the globe. In addition, gold contracts on the Shanghai are settled in physical metal, which is further pulling gold out of the West. Taking all these factors into consideration, at some point the price of gold is almost certain to rise substantially.

Danielle and I have been discussing the unsustainability of the current bull market in stocks for a long time. It's been going on for 10 years now, but recently the bull appears to be running out of steam. The FANG stocks may have been de-fanged, so what's left to drive the market higher. Always remember that the market can remain irrational much longer than you can remain solvent. It's my opinion that it's going to go on quite a while longer. Let's see what happens next.

Martin Armstrong is back explaining what’s really happening in the Repo market. It’s all about Europe. It’s a function of the Euro’s failure and the march into the safe-haven US Dollar. The Repo crisis is about Deutch Bank going down and the European politicians refuse to bail it out, what happens next? No one wants to merge with it, it’s the red-headed step child of international banking. The US Dollar has no choice but to keep going up. Dow is headed much, much higher. Gold will take off as confidence in the system ebbs. US Government debt is still the standard and will remain so for a while to come.

Podcast cover

It's back to school, which means it's time for children across American to crack open their 40-year-old textbook by Marxist Howard Zinn which informs the rhetoric of democratic socialists. Zinn's A People's History of the United States has been indoctrinating children all over the United States for years and what do we have to show for it? Socialist lawmakers like AOC.   Scholar and resident fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization, Mary Grabar, exposes the leftist, anti-American agenda in Zinn’s textbook and reveals the truth about this dangerous ideology in her upcoming book, Debunking Howard Zinn: Exposing the Fake History That Turned a Generation against America (launching August 20, 2019).   The left is calling everyone who doesn’t agree with them a racist, claiming: —“This country was founded on white supremacy”—BETO O’ROURKE at a Nashville campaign event, July 2019   —“We are living in visible fascism ascendant. (I say visible, because those paying attention watched it survive and thrive under the protection of the state for decades (see Howard Zinn, A People’s History of the United States.)”—ARMED ATTACKER who tried to bomb an ICE detention center, July 2019   —“White America needs to face the roots of inequities and the fact of systemic racism all around us. It’s the air we breathe.”—PETE BUTTIGIEGE in an NPR interview, July 2019   These claims are destroying American politics and they all have a common source—A People’s History of the United States—a Marxist textbook IN AMERICAN CLASSROOMS written by Howard Zinn.

Poised to Break Wall Street’s Stronghold on The Way Americans Save for Retirement, David J. Scranton’s latest book, The Retirement Income Stor-E: The Story behind The Launch of The Retirement Income Store. The book is about to shatter many of the myths that Wall Street bankers have promoted and protected for decades. Myths like: “Over the long run, the stock market always outperforms other asset classes.” Or, “High P/E Ratios are no reason to worry.”David Scranton says, “The simple truth is that those who were born in 1968 or earlier can’t afford to ride out another catastrophic stock market drop like the one that started in 2000 that took nearly 50% of investors’ portfolios, or the one that started in 2007 that took nearly 60% of investors’ portfolios. The goal is to reduce, and even eliminate exposure to stock market risk. And this book shows you how.

Rank #19: Martin Armstrong - Dow 35000+ and Time for Gold (Almost) #4395

Podcast cover
Read more
The game is on. Martin believes that gold's recent advance was just the opening salvo. He wouldn't be surprised to see it take a hit for now and then come screaming back to start making new highs. As Martin says, people are starting to wise up to the monetary debasement game. Confidence in the Government Con, as low as it might be now, is going to all but disappear. And that's bad news for paper money of all descriptions. Following this line of reasoning it's not hard to understand why the Dow will eclipse its current highs and hit 35000 in the not too distant future. Loss of confidence will keep money pouring into real assets, and the stock market still represents shares in somewhat real enterprises, although how real is open to debate. It's all setting up for 2020 and Martin says the computer is predicting an outright Trump win. Let's see what happens next!

According to Nick Santiago, Tesla will hit $542-3 and then dive. That's not to say it's not a great company and it's plans for world dominance won't eventually succeed. Just don't bet all of your IRA or 401k on it, especially at these lofty levels. People who invest at the top of a parabolic move, inevitably wind up falling off a cliff.

Farewell General Soleimani - Frank Vernuccio #4626

Podcast cover
Read more
President Trump did the unthinkable, he terminated General Soleimani with extreme prejudice. Our view is good riddance. The late General was a terroristic homicidal maniac with a thirst for blood. While it's very easy to fall for the moral equivalency trap, his elimination was removal of a blight on humanity. There are rules of war which the United States has routinely violated, no doubt. Wars have been fought under very specious grounds that have resulted in mass casualties. However, to our knowledge, our generals have not eliminated thousands of potential domestic adversaries or engaged in heinous civilian attacks that have no military purpose, other than to instill terror among civilians. In short, even a guilty criminal can commit acts of justifiable homicide, of which this was surely one. While the world might not be a better place for the General's passing, it surely is not a worse place either.

2020 Foresight is 20-20 with Craig Hemke (a/k/a) Turd Ferguson #4624

Podcast cover
Read more
In 2019 Craig Hemke made the most accurate gold call of any analyst out there. He said that the Fed would be cutting rates in September, he was two months late. Best of all, the gold price acted as he forecast. Fed debt is increasing geometrically with no end in sight. Where will that leave gold and the dollar? Right now gold is in the mid 1550’s, with more increases on the way. It’s all connected with the Repo melt-down and QE4. The deficit isn’t going away, the only way it can be paid is by direct monetization, which is well underway. The Fed was late releasing it's latest meeting minutes, where they admitted that if the risk of liquidity continues they’ll be increasing monetization to shorter duration of securities. Anyone can see it happening before our very eyes.  Click here to get Craig's free report...

Consumer Confidence Disappoints As Hope Fades - Brad Williams #4619

Following the headline decline for Conference Board Consumer Confidence in November, analysts are expecting an exuberant bounce in December as every asset class rose majestically (despite retail sales slowing). But, despite record high stocks, the headline consumer confidence data disappointed, printing 126.5 (down from the upwardly revised 126.8) and well below the hopeful 128.5 expected. While the Present Situation picked up modestly, the Future Outlook weakened: Present situation confidence rose to 170.0 vs 166.6 last month Consumer confidence expectations fell to 97.4 vs 100.3 last month

Consumer Spending Climbs at Fastest Pace in 4 Months - John Grace #4618

Podcast cover
Read more
The numbers: Americans increased spending in November at the fastest rate in four months, suggesting households still have plenty of buying power to keep the economy growing at a steady pace through the holiday shopping season.  Consumer spending rose 0.4% last month, the government said Friday. That’s the biggest increase since July and it matched the MarketWatch forecast. The cost of goods and services also increased slightly in November, but inflation more broadly was still quite low. The so-called PCE price index rose 0.2% last month to push the yearly rate of inflation up a tick to 1.5%. That’s still well below the Federal Reserve’s 2% inflation target, however.  What happened: Households bought more cars and trucks in November. They also spent more on health care, government figures showed. Steadily rising incomes — a byproduct of the strongest labor market in decades — have made it easier for households to spend. Incomes climbed a solid 0.5% last month, rebounding from a flat reading in October that economists viewed as an anomaly. Consumers were also able to pocket some more savings. The savings rate edged up to 7.9% from 7.8%. The broad increase in consumer spending last month told a somewhat different picture than a narrower survey of how much Americans spent at retail stores. Retail sales appeared somewhat soft, but it might have stemmed from a late Thanksgiving holiday that pushed Black Monday into December. If so, retail sales should be stronger in December than would usually be the case. Meanwhile, another inflation bellwether in the report, known as core PCE, edged up 0.1% last month. It’s risen just 1.6% in the past 12 months.  The core rate strips out food and energy prices since they tend to swing more sharply than the cost of other goods and services. Big picture: Strong consumer spending has kept the economy expanding for a record 11th straight year, but it hasn’t been enough to offset the drag from weaker business investment. U.S. growth in 2019 has slowed after hitting a 13-year peak in 2018.  Slower growth is expected to persist into early 2020, but the odds of recession are seen as very low.  Market reaction:The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.41% and S&P 500 SPX, +0.56% rose slightly in Friday trades. The 10-year Treasury yield TMUBMUSD10Y, -0.08% was unchanged at 1.93%.

Nothing Can Go Wrong - Go Wrong - Go Wrong with John Rubino #4617

Podcast cover

Everything is coming up roses for Donald Trump, impeachment is a major non-event. Yet there are still things that can bring him down. A stock market collapse, a credit collapse or a geo-political event that kills the economy. Junk bonds are now booming, a late cycle event that is a portent of things to come. Another even more important development in the credit market is the total prostitution of the rating agencies, just like  the early 2000’s. As the saying goes, We’ve learned nothing and forgotten nothing.
