Ivan believes that Trump is more playing to his base and cannot withdraw from the agreement. It won't play well with our allies as well as the Chinese and Russians. He's probably not going to get anywhere with his threats. Let's see what happens. 

Same with North Korea. Probably not much Trump can or will do to stop it and instead he must look to contain the damage.

In her newly announced but already bestselling book, Fatwa: Hunted in America, the woman known as "the Joan of Arc of the counter-Jihad movement," Pamela Geller, tells the story of how she became one of the world’s foremost activists for freedom of speech and equality of rights for all.

Her critics have called her “the most dangerous woman in America,” “far-right hate queen,” and “the anti-Muslim movement’s most visible and flamboyant figurehead.” Her admirers say she is “the Joan of Arc of the counter-jihad movement,” “one of the top world experts in radical Islam and Sharia law and Islamic supremacism,” and “a wonderful fighter for liberty.”

Pamela Geller writes: “Any lover of freedom would have been tarred the same way I was, and many have been. I am but a proxy in this terrible long war; what has happened to me is what happens, in small and large ways, to every American who stands for freedom.”

Jason observes that due to the worldwide increase in wealth over the past several decades, there is now a shortage of high quality assets. This was foreseen decades ago by the infamous Michael Milken. Now where is this shortage as pronounced as in US high quality single family housing. That's why the prices keep shooting up, until they eventually come down again.

Wayne Allyn Root believes that Senate Leader McConnell is ready for a fall. The sooner the better. The Senate and House have been the enemies of the people for many years and now Trump has totally unmasked them. 

What really happened in the Las Vegas Massacre? Wayne believes that MGM systematically disarmed its security guards to save on insurance. As a result, the Mandalay Bay turned into a defacto gun free zone. He was in a nearby restaurant when the shooting started. It was unclear how many shooters there were and where the shots were coming from. Scary times!

Recently Heather was on Facebook, her first mistake and was friended by a young gentleman from New York, or so she thought. Actually, he was from Ghana and he had a deal for Heather. Just send him $6,000 and she could make over $100,000. Of course Heather recognized him for the fraudster he was. She strung him along for quite a while. Unfortunately the FBI wasn't interested unless she sent him money. Well that's where the story ended. Hopefully her case can help others to avoid getting scammed.

John observes that the yield curve is flattening out. In the past this has been a sure sign of impending recession. Is this time different? Then we move to other ominous signs in Europe. Catalonian secession, a nationalist government elected in Austria and the Kurds march towards their own state. Not exactly a comforting picture of stability in the world.

Veteran newsman Don Mazzella  sited a recent study showing that the U.S. Middle-Class Incomes have reached the highest level ever!


According to the Census Bureau, incomes of middle-class Americans rose last year to the highest level ever recorded. Poverty declined and the scars of the past decade’s Great Recession seemed to finally fade.

Median household income rose at a 3.2 percent clip based on the previous year and the second consecutive year of healthy gains, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday. What do the numbers mean? Is this a direct reflection on President Trump and his cabinet? Where does our economy currently stand?

Lynette Sang joined us for an interesting discussion of central banking and crypto/klepto-currencies. The Fed orchestrated the Crash of 1929. It was basically a wealth redistribution scheme and it worked quite well. Now we're approaching a global economic reset where the coin of the realm will be SDR's (special drawing rights) issued by the IMF. What could go wrong? They've got your back, right? Also, Lynette believes the crypto-currencies could easily be a scheme to get you to give up your paper currency. Lot's more here, so listen carefully.

Danielle quotes, '"A buoyant and complacent stock market is worrying Richard H. Thaler, the University of Chicago professor who this week won the Nobel Prize in economics, “We seem to be living in the riskiest moment of our lives, and yet the stock market seems to be napping...'"

We're living through the most complacent market on record. All the bears have given up and gone home, which often happens before a correction. 

Danielle's final word of caution, "The only really bad way to be wrong is to lose a ton of money."

Jeremy Poirier has over 12 years of experience in the capital markets, with 8 of that in the Lithium industry, making him one of the most knowledgeable insiders around. He was a co-founder of Pure Energy Minerals Limited. During his tenure with there, he reviewed numerous lithium assets and fostered relationships with various partners throughout the supply chain. He started Bearing Lithium to exploit the amazing opportunities in Lithium. Prices are now in the $15k per ton range, whereas just a few short years ago they were less than $5k. Demand for Lithium continues to increase geometrically in a variety of areas. Truly an emerging growth industry/success story.

Trump’s tax plan could be a big win for retirement savers
Whatever you might think of our current president, you can’t say he doesn’t think big.

The Trump-GOP tax plan just announced has the potential to affect retirement savers in fundamental, long-term ways that could be positive for many Americans. The plan is a long way from reality and is likely to see some changes before becoming law.

For now, here’s the thumbnail version:

• Corporate taxes fall to 20% from the current 35% (and some business deductions end)

• A possible one-time lower rate on repatriated corporate income held abroad, perhaps at 10%

• A 25% rate on “pass-through businesses,” whose owners now pay higher, personal income rates

• Three tax brackets — 12%, 25% and 35% — rather than the current seven

• A near-doubling of the standard deduction, the first dollar of income taxed, to $12,000 per individual and $24,000 for married couples

There’s more, such as a possible refundable child tax credit and the repeal of the estate tax, but let’s focus on what happens to the retirement investor.

If you work and make enough money to save, chances are you save into a 401(k) plan at work or put money into a personal IRA. So far, so good.

Nothing is as ever as it seems. All of us regularly experience total information overload. Facts rush at us from every source imaginable, radio, television, social media, the government, zillions of independent sites and of course the established (mainstream) legacy media. Once upon a time in land not so far away, the MSM would actually follow leads, attempt to get to the bottom of stories by connecting the dots. And they’d do it without a hidden agenda. Not anymore!

Next, gold and silver ended the week higher with gold over $1300 per ounce and silver at $17.41. Probably higher from here, but let's save the champagne for now. 

Airbnb entrepreneurs find a way. Even though the Hotel Industry has put the government on Airbnb's case, where there's a will, there's a way. Many of NYC's Airbnb listings come from Brooklyn's Hipster class. For them free speech is evil, some free markets are good! Go figure. 

And NY's obnoxious senator Chuckie Schumer is after e-Cigs yet again. Perhaps he's in the tobacco industry's pocket. Or maybe he really does care about the children.

The civil rights movement of the 1960's is dead. Now it's all about identity politics. It does nothing for members of the group that have been left behind. The Southern Poverty Law Center which shuffles money around the globe better than a drug cartel. They're now a cure in search of a disease. Once you've won the battle against institutional racism, what's left? Now they're all about getting more contributions and have a vested interest in seeing racial incidents occur.

Beware, 2017 is the 7th year of the decade. Beware! This is the year when major corrections occur. 2007, 1997, 1987, 1977... Traders and markets are so complacent, they've left themselves open to a major correction. Just like you wouldn't want to be in a trailer during a Cat 5 storm, the same with being fully invested in the market with a potential Cat 5 economic storm approaching. Complete complacency with extremely low volume.

Some people believe the Gods are crazy and others believe Trump is nuts and still others believe that North Koreans are really insane. Who's right? Dr. Paul Kengor believes that the North Koreans are rational and following a definite strategy in their confrontation with the US and the World. He thinks that they believe, due to prior treatment, that nothing will done to stop their nuclear desires. And China couldn't care less. But then that was before Trump. Perhaps now they're unsure and just maybe will back off. Things are happening behind the scenes. Let's see what happens next!

Is this deja vu all over again? Chicago fighting the mob and a great depression and looking for a way into the future. 

Al Capone and the 1933 World’s Fair: The End of the Gangster Era in Chicago is a historical look at Chicago during the darkest days of the Great Depression. The story of Chicago fighting the hold that organized crime had on the city to be able to put on The 1933 World’s Fair.

William Hazelgrove provides the exciting and sprawling history behind the 1933 World’s Fair, the last of the golden age. He reveals the story of the six millionaire businessmen, dubbed The Secret Six, who beat Al Capone at his own game, ending the gangster era as prohibition was repealed. The story of an intriguing woman, Sally Rand, who embodied the World’s Fair with her own rags to riches story and brought sex into the open. The story of Rufus and Charles Dawes who gave the fair a theme and then found financing in the worst economic times the country had ever experienced. The story of the most corrupt mayor of Chicago, William Thompson, who owed his election to Al Capone; and the mayor who followed him, Anton Cermak, who was murdered months before the fair opened by an assassin many said was hired by Al Capone.

But most of all it’s the story about a city fighting for survival in the darkest of times; and a shining light of hope called A Century of Progress.
