The more things change, the more they stay the same. When it comes to debt things never change. Since the beginning of time, man has been writing IOU's that often became uncollectible. The very act of farming required credit or the borrowing of other people's surpluses. Credit based on barter became very impractical and thus the need for money evolved. Today, even though we track everything on computers and global networks, the basic economic functions haven't evolved. And there's the rub. We haven't figured out how to make everyone whole and thus the need for frequent jubilees. Lending at interest kind of makes it all an inevitability.

Los Angeles County is in an extreme crisis. The Sheriff's Office has become ineffectual due to horrible leadership and management. That's  where Bob Lindsey comes in. With 32 years experience in the upper echelons of the Sheriff's Office, no wonder 93% of the deputies overwhelmingly support his election efforts. With 1500 openings in the office, the need to reform the office has become urgent. Unfortunately, there's really no one else who is up to the job. That's why FSN is endorsing Bob Lindsey for LA County Sheriff.

Mickey Fulp and FSN have been discussing the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) to Brent Crude price ratio for nearly 7 years. During that we haven't seen any so-called reputable financial publications discuss the relevance or significance of the measure. All of a sudden, John reports, the WSJ screaming warnings from the rooftops claiming that the ratio is heading into dangerous territory. What's a truth seeker to do? Contrary to their contention, the ratio isn't sending up an oil price warning signal. Rather, it's very close to its historic average and could in fact be predicting a significant price decline. Let's see what happens next.

Jeff Ferry writes "That for decades, economists have taught David Ricardo’s Law of Comparative Advantage as if it is an absolute law. But the tide is turning, as some highly respected economists are now moving away from the doctrinaire position that all free trade is always good everywhere, and they begin to acknowledge that free trade and large trade deficits have inflicted substantial harm on the U.S. economy."
 
"From the mid-1970s on, growing trade has also meant the growing loss of good-paying jobs to competitor nations. Around the year 2000, the process accelerated. Globalization entered a new phase, 'hyper-globalization,'" which has wrought much pain and destruction upon American industrial corporations. How do we end it and have a healthy economy in the process?

According to Trace Mayer, one of crypto currencies' earliest boosters, there's still a lot of opportunity to be had in the space. People will either figure it out or they'll be big losers. That's why you need to do your homework and not expect any governmental babysitter to protect them or come to their rescue once they've been scammed. His proprietary Mayer Multiple can help determine accurate values and keep you out of trouble. We'll be including it in our monthly reports from now on.

Taylor Letterman is a relative newby to the Crypto currency space. He's been developing trading bots to take advantage of price differentials on the various exchanges. He's extremely bullish on security tokens which have a bright future ahead. There's obviously regulatory issues that must be dealt with in the mean time. If the SEC regulates Cryptos will sellers and dealers need to be licensed security dealers? Many questions need to be answered and will be addressed in the not too distant future.

Our last headline on the subject Screw Q (anon) was a little click-baitish. We apologize if you mistook Dr. Jerome Corsi's opinion for ours. As we've said on numerous occasions, we're not taking anyone's words as true without a close analysis, especially an anonymous intel insider who may or may not exist.

But upon close inspection of his posts, we're more inclined to believe most of them, than not. Some of the interpretations by so-called anons or autists must be looked at even closer. It's like reading the Nostradamus Quatrains. Sometimes they can be interpreted to mean just about anything. For example, the idea that there are 20 plus thousand sealed indictments related to a wholesale Deep State cleaning cannot be proven and is probably off the wall. We personally ran reports in a number of Federal District Courts and found a slight increase in sealed cases. However, that doesn't mean that certain key people aren't in the process of being indicted, simply that the numbers don't prove the case. 

And watch what happens when these powers that bee finally understand that the jig is up. Expect a whole of suiciding and clearing of the decks, just like they did in the movie Casino. Because when it comes to somebody talking and spilling the beans, well you just never know. And who can take a chance?

Against all odds and expectations of the establishment, the Trump Economy is going on all cylinders. Unfortunately, we're getting to the end of the cycle. Consumers are maxed out on goods and services. Andrew says we're scraping the bottom of the barrel to keep markets expanding. Right now interest rates are low enough so we can all ignore it. But the day is coming when higher interest rates will bring it all into focus. And then look out below.

Michael Stumo says that President Trump has a lot on his plate. When it comes to trade, it's Trump against the world. With Chinese, EU and NAFTA trade disputes, Michael says that Trump's attention span is short and you can expect NAFTA to continue on as it has since passage. Except that no one knows Trump will do next. When it comes to DJT, expect the unexpected.

Daniel Ameduri has built up an amazing business that he started during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. If he had taken the conventional route, going to college and then getting a good job, his life would have been much less fulfilling and interesting. It was only by taking the risk and laying it all on the line that he was able to grow as a person and achieve real self-esteem. You can always stay with a job that you hate, but until you take the plunge, you're never going to know who you can really become.

When we last spoke with Nick he was predicting a major dollar rally. Everyone thought he that he was only on a few cylinders, but time has proven him correct yet again. The dollar is soaring and roaring and the Euro is tumbling and people are scratching their heads. It's been a tremendous market advance and Nick has cashed in. All is not well in Euroland and Deutsche Bank's chart is looking horrible. Greece has issues again and so does Italy and of course the ECB continues to buy debt to keep it all going. There's lots more in store.

Russia has been running a surplus and is using the proceeds to buy gold and fix things up. Things are looking up. The demographic situation is improving and they're diversifying their economy. The question is what benefits they'll realize from their relative frugalness? 

The Mideast is a total basket case. Iraq is becoming Italy. There's widespread rioting in Israel due to the US opening of its embassy in Jerusalem. Is this a longer term deterioration of the situation or is it just business as usual for this troubled region of the world?

Henk Van Alphen is CEO of Wealth Minerals, (FSN Sponsor) an incredibly well situated Chilean Lithium producer, where a large portion of the world's Lithium is produced. While electric cars or EV's are gradually expanding market share in the USA, the story is much different in Asia. China and other countries, faced with horrible air pollution, have implemented aggressive policies to replace the internal combustion engine with electric power. The price of Lithium is likely to head much higher, which will greatly benefit producers like Wealth Minerals. Add to this the fact that most of the world's Lithium deposits have already been identified and are spoken for and it's obvious that this rising boat will lift all producers. There's just not a lot of unclaimed deposits available at anywhere approaching a reasonable investment. And that could very well mean the future for both Lithium and Wealth Minerals is very bright indeed.

The truth about online marketing. It's easy if you know what you're doing, but the problem is that most people don't have a clue. That's where Mike Gazzola comes in. He has a number of students who have far outperformed him. From ordering, to private labeling, to finding the right product, Mike shows you how to set up systems that work. Support is the name of the game. He showed how a bizarre product like a watermelon slicer could wind up on page 1 of Amazon and rack up major sales. And that's just one example. There's many more opportunities just waiting to be uncovered.

They're voting with their feet. 800,000 people set to leave New York and California due to the new tax act. The death knell of these states is that the state and local tax deduction under the new law is limited to $10,000 per annum. In California just 43,000 people will be paying an average of $225,000 more per year. Some leftist economists have the gaul to argue that tax increases of this magnitude in high tax states will have no affect. This is naive and untrue. The migration from high tax states to low tax states has been going on for the past 50 years. Refusal to admit this reality will only result in disaster.

Dr. Jerome Corsi joined us again today. He's of the distinct opinion that Q anon has been compromised. The information coming out of the 8 Chan Board is completely different in nature before. The soothing words to Trust the Plan no longer suffice. It could be a deep state hijacking of the once believable and honest Q anon. Demonization of those writing books and earning money off the phenomena is designed to divide the movement and frustrate the participants. Combined with an unleashing of Trolls and you have a perfectly implemented deep state op. Should we be surprised? Let's start seeing some arrests and public airing of the evidence. Let the people judge.

We hadn’t talked with Chris Duane in quite a while. He’s been busier than ever creating new silver coins. He’s done over 150 so far and is averaging 4 per week now. They all carry a message, that the debt/death paradigm is coming to its natural conclusion. It’s just a matter of time. And time is running shortl.

Turmoil has again swept the Argentine economy. Overnight short term rates have been raised to 40 percent as the currency crashes. And to think just last year they were issuing 100 year bonds with a 7.9% coupon. Who were the lucky investors getting that slop? Hopefully not hapless American pension funds. And then there's Iran. Today, Trump will decide what to do about the agreement with Iran. The smart money is betting he abrogates it, witness the price of oil breaking $70. Is war in the offing?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is seen as both a boon and a threat. It uses our personal data to influence our lives without us realising it. It is used by social media to draw our attention to things we are interested in buying, and by our tablets and computers to predict what we want to type (good). It facilitates targeting of voters to influence elections (bad, particularly if your side loses).

Perhaps the truth or otherwise of allegations such as electoral interference should be regarded in the light of the interests of their promotors. Politicians are always ready to accuse an opponent of being unscrupulous in his methods, including the use of AI to promote fake news, or influencing targeted voters in other ways. A cynic might argue that the political class wishes to retain control over propaganda by manipulating the traditional media he understands and is frightened AI will introduce black arts to his disadvantage. Whatever the influences behind the debate, there is no doubt that AI is propelling us into a new world, and we must learn to embrace it whether we like it or not.

Ned is getting more and more bullish on precious metals and commodities. While the PM sector has been in holding pattern for several years, agricultural commodities have been on a tear. Corn, soy beans and sorghum have been way up. And this is in spite of China's threatened tariffs on US ag exports. Prices have actually gone up since the threat was made. On the other hand, stocks hit their peak several months ago and show no signs of making new highs. Is the market trying to tell us something?

Our old comrade in arms Sean of the SGTReport joined us for an in depth look at Q anon, the Deep State and the Shadow Government. Sean believes that this is an epic battle of good against evil. Perhaps the old saying often misattributed to Churchill, "That God looks after children, drunks and the United States," is really true. How else to explain how Trump won an impossible bid for president. Now we're in the midst of the hard work to get rid of the lawless and evil parts of our system and our world. Whether it's child trafficking, unparalleled corruption or needless wars, until Trump was elected we had no hope. Today things are different, but the threats are still omnipresent. Is it too much to expect any man to really drain the swamp? Sean's money is on Trump to do exactly that and more.

When it comes to the economy, real estate investing and North Korea, everything is coming up Trump. He's had a profound impact upon the country and the world. The economy is close to full employment, but more importantly there's real optimism present, unlike during the 8 years of his predecessor. Can it continue? Real estate is booming to the point where the types of properties Jason specializes in (cash flow income) are tight supply. But interest rates are supposedly heading higher, so who knows what's next?

Noted author and columnist John Tamny joined us today. John is an ardent free trader and perhaps even more libertarian than us. He's against any governmental intervention in the economy or in international trade, regardless of the motivation. He has a point, but how are you going to get politicians to withdraw from economic interference, when that's what they get paid for? He believes that China is just minding its own business getting wealthy and the US is being a buzzkill. History may have to be the judge of that.

Yes, you read that right. Just when all the metals bugs are about to give up, Charles Nenner is calling for record precious metals prices. He says the rally will start at the end of the summer going into Q3. The price target is 2 years out. He doesn't currently have a silver price target, but will get back to us shortly once the cycles confirm. He believes that the USD is also heading higher once again and Treasuries will be a good place to be. Oil prices are headed for another major decline. Let's see what happens next!
