Brigitte Gabriel is a NY Times best-selling author, leading expert on global Islamic terrorism and Chairman of ACT! for America, the largest national security grassroots organization in America. Her latest book is RISE: In Defense of Judeo-Christian Values and Freedom.

Ms. Gabriel started ACT for America in an effort to protect the citizens of the United States from the horrors she experienced as a young girl in her native Lebanon. When Ms. Gabriel was 10 years old, militant radical Islamists launched rockets into her family’s home in their Christian town in southern Lebanon destroying her home and seriously injuring her as they raged war against the “infidels.” Her family was forced to seek refuge in an underground 8 x 10-foot bomb shelter where they lived for the next seven years. Often surviving on mere weeds, they had to crawl through a ditch to get water from a nearby spring while avoiding Islamic snipers.

When it comes to trade, President Trump made big promises on the campaign trail. He railed against the fact that America is getting ripped off by its trade partners. Now he's doing something about it. Mexico and the EU have agreed to new terms and Canada isn't very far off. So far China is the lone hold out, but Daniel believes that they're just waiting for the mid-terms in hopes that a Democratic win in the house will weaken the President's position. Don't count on it.

James Robbins just told USA Today that, “Social media has become a public menace.”

Robbins is the author of the newly released Erasing America: Losing Our Future by Destroying Our Past – a book that details the Left’s manipulative plot to destroy America’s history in order to control America’s future.

Robbins recognizes that the Left is determined to control American ideas – and social media is the perfect platform to do so.  Erasing America is topically chock-full of the Left’s attempts to control the American discourse.

Erasing America examines:

·       The phenomena of football players kneeling during the national anthem.

·       The removal of monuments dedicated to Confederate soldiers or Founding Fathers

·       Supreme court rulings fringed with Leftist hypocrisy

·       Frantic accusations of racism – made up by the Left.

·       Liberal hatred of Christmas – and their attempts to ban Hallmark movies, Christmas songs, and much more.

·       The immigration epidemic – why illegals NOT assimilating helps the Left.

·       The infiltration of radical agendas into American education.

·       And parallels between pre-Civil War America - and TODAY.

Noted author, fund manager and economist Nathan Lewis joined the show for the first time. He's written a number of books about how a gold standard can successfully be re-implemented. He believes that for right now, the dollar's value is acting as if it were backed by gold. It's been relatively stable for years. Can it continue down this path indefinitely into the future? There's really no way to know, but many naysayers have long predicted the dollar's death and so far they've been completely wrong.

Stock market is reaching cycle highs. S&P high is getting closer. Bond markets are looking positive. The dollar is headed higher. Gold could be heading much lower in September after its current bounce is over. Charles doesn't see any inflation ahead, but deflation could be coming back. Crude oil could be going lower to under $65. The next two months are going to be very interesting for sure.

Eager to clear his name from the ignominy of his last stand - but forced to do so incognito, under the clever pseudonym Armstrong - Custer comes across evildoings in the mysterious Montana town of Bloody Gulch, which a ruthless Indian trader runs as his own personal fiefdom, with rumors of muder, slavery, and buried treasure.

Armstrong is a rip-roaring tale of action, adventure, and hilarity as the ridiculously handsome, astonishingly brave, and highly susceptible milk-drinking cavalryman travels through the untamed West.

The Custer of the West Series begins here - and it's a wild ride you won't want to miss. 

"The world has a new hero - actually an old hero reimagined - George Armstrong Custer, in this delightfully funny alternative history that's better, or at least happier, than the real thing." - WINSTON GROOM, bestselling author of Forrest Gump and El Paso

"Droll satire, this is the West as it might have been if the Sioux hadn't saved us." - STEPHEN COONTS, bestselling author of Flight of the Intruder and Liberty's Last Stand

"If Custer died for our sins, Armstrong resurrects him for our delight. Not just the funniest book ever written about an Indian massacre, but laugh out loud funny, period. The best historical comic adventure since George MacDonald Fraser's Flashman." - PHILLIP JENNINGS, author of Nam-A-Rama and Goodbye Mexico

"Crocker has created a hilarious hero for the ages. Armstrong rides through the Old West setting right the wrongs, and setting wrong the rights, in a very funny cascade of satire, history, and even patriotism." - ROB LONG, Emmy- and Golden Globes-nominated screenwriter and co-executive producer of Cheers

What if Custer survived the Battle of the Little Bighorn?

What if he became a gun-for-hire?

And what if he made common cause with a troupe of cancan dancers, Chinese acrobats, an eyepatch-wearing rebel cardsharp, and a multilingual Crow scout?

The economy is booming or so we believe. But is it really just a debt fueled consumer orgy? There's a reason why debt is a four letter word. Student loans are through the roof! Same with sub-prime auto loans as well as credit cards. Is this truly the pathway to sustainable growth and prosperity for the nation and the world? Trump appears to be winning the trade wars. Who'd a thunk it, other than us? What more is in store? The Trumps wins just keep on piling up and up.

The US continues to go deeper and deeper into while the developing world is seeing one currency implode after another. Who will be the next casualty? No one in the US seems to be too concerned. While the last global financial crisis began with the US sub-prime mortgage market, perhaps the next has already begun with weaker currencies blowing up left and right. Gold and silver have both taken it on the chin, but at some they will represent reality.

John commented on Gold's $20 spike on Friday due in large part to Fed Chair Powell's dovish statements. It's been a grinding depressing stretch for precious metals. But the latest COT report shows the speculators are net short, the last time this happened was in 1999, the beginning of a long glorious run. The tree does not grow to the sky.

Jeff says, "We’re in a time when we need good financial information and excellent financial advice. We’re not getting it, and that’s a huge problem. Life expectancy is longer, medical costs are rising, Social Security is tenuous, and markets are rocky. The information that enters our homes, whether it is through the mail, the TV, or the internet, is dubious at best. The smiling investment guy in the suit offering to help may not be any better. This book was written so opportunities won’t be lost behind everything else you’re bombarded with concerning your finances — and so you can put your interests first.It will clear up a lot of misconceptions, stop the leaks, and provide a clear view and best path to viable options. Although I work exclusively with retirees and pre-retirees, Turning Financial Planning Right Side Up is invaluable to people of all ages. As a financial advisor, I help everyday people prepare for what my staff and I call “the art of financial self-defense.” Their retirement funds are designed so they pull out as much income as they can, but leave their assets intact and avoid losses."

Billions and billions of dollars are thrown at the homeless problem yearly and yet it keeps getting worse and worse. Is that by accident or design? The huge non-profits charged with caring for the homeless love it. They get more money every year. But our entire homeless policy based upon faulty data and false beliefs? The fact is that most homeless are mentally ill and/or addicted (to alcohol or drugs). It's time to reinstitutionalize the mentally ill and get them off the streets and into treatment. It's the most humane approach available.

John and I discussed the recent conviction of Paul Manafort and the guilty plea of Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen. I blew the call on Manafort. Thought for sure the jury would hang on all counts. Cohen is an interesting case. Did Trump really commit a crime, probably not. But who in their right mind wants to get involved in politics these days? But then how many politicians are in their right mind anyway? We take your questions about the Fed and other interesting topics and our good friend and FSN community member Marian who actually listened to the show in Tibet. Are we that spiritual?

Michael Stumo is very optimistic about Trump's so-called trade war. Seems that the US is adding industrial jobs at a rate of 20 to 1 over those being lost. While the last 5 administrations have either ignored the trade deficit issue or pled helplessness altogether, President Trump has addressed the problem head on. And it's beginning to yield results, witness the recently announced $750 million investment in its ancient US Steel's Gary Indiana steel plant. Things are beginning to change and that will probably be for the US's benefit.

Is it better to right too early or be wrong too late. If you've been listening to Danielle Park for any length of time then you know she believes that it's the former, not the latter. While she's been sitting on the sidelines for quite a while, the market has done nothing but go up. But at some point it's going to revert to the mean and that means a potentially huge correction that could potentially wipe out years of paper gains. Better to be proactive and avoid potentially devastating losses, even if it means missing out on large temporary gains.

Kenneth Ameduri joined us for a discussion about the economy. He like so many are amazed at the power of Trump's policies and rapid difference they have made in the economy and around the world. He's still concerned about the debt and over-laden public and private pension plans, and is confident that there will have to be a day of reckoning. But for now, it's clear skies ahead. 

The Cannabis industry is taking off and there's nothing Jeff Sessions can do about, or should for that matter says Ken. It's hit critical mass and there's no stopping it. Todays infant companies could be tomorrow's multi-billion dollar brands, so keep watching the sector for opportunities like the one's we've brought to you in the past. 

Finally, Bitcoin, will it ever come back. Neither Ken or myself were at all surprised by the crypto-crash. In an industry where 80 percent of the ICO's (Initial Coin Offerings) were pure fraud, who can be surprised. But at some point they'll come back and another Crypto will unseat Bitcoin.

The jurors keep deliberating on the fate of former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort. Was he just a plant as Q anon claims and this is his rightful reward for screwing things up and allowing Trump to get the Republican nomination? Or is he just trying to squeeze Manafort into dropping the dime on Trump? In this case a tie is a win for Manafort. Let's face it, everyone knows that the Mueller Probe is just a pile of Muler Dung. 

It's clear that politicization has hit the judicial system, like it ever left, as a result of the national split resulting from the Trump Presidency. Is it any surprise that even in Alexandria Virginia there's a few latent Trumpers who are out to see that justice is done? There are probably 2-3 seemingly apolitical types who've infiltrated the jury and are casting their votes for Manafort's innocence. Jury nullification at its finest!

We've done dozens of interviews over the past month on the #reinstitutionalizenow movement. We've said it before and we'll say it again, there's is no other way to help the homeless. And we're already spending the money, so what's the point of deceiving ourselves any further that it's humane to allow the homeless to live on our streets? I also provide an insight into what the Saudi - Canadian clash is all about. Alligator strikes in SC. And loads more as always. Go take a look at FSN and see the latest news.

Nick Santiago is no stranger to market timing and cycles. His previous calls have often been nothing short of prescient. Now, he's calling for a major stock market advance in October. Tis the season. Gold, copper, oil could all be heading lower, with gold set for another low before beginning a major advance. It's all in the timing. And Nick knows that better than just about anyone else out there.

Are we in a new Trumpian Paradigm where markets keep going higher and higher and commodities keep going lower and lower? The recent market action can make one wonder. But Rick Ackerman believes that the January 2018 Dow Peak and the recent NASDAQ and Russell 2000 highs could be showing a market disconnect which could very well mean rough sailing ahead. But that's not so bad because it will mean opportunities in other markets will start appearing.

Everywhere we look fiat currencies are burning down. What is the market telling us? Is something big about to happen. Every time the US Dollar goes higher, it's bad news for some country. While it might be affecting gold and cryptos negatively, the trend won't continue indefinitely. As we have seen over and over again, not only does the tree not grow to the sky, but markets have a nasty way of punishing investors who refuse to accept this immutable fact. 

As Ned predicted last month on this show, the Chinese have an insatiable appetite for soybeans. And while they were only too happy to levy reciprocal tariffs on US soybean products, it seems to have blown up in their faces. Unless they want to reduce beef and pork production, there's only one place to go, the good old USofA. Could Trump have known this already. More fun to follow. 

Ned has some great ag picks in addition to perennial favorite Archer Daniels Midland. Eli Lily is about to spin off their ag biz and it promises to be a major home run for those savvy enough to recognize it as such. And Ned doesn't believe all those nasty things they've been saying about Roundup!

Brad Williams writes, "US workers see biggest pay, benefit increase in 10 years U.S. workers saw the largest increase in wages and benefits since September 2008, according to a new report from the Labor Department on Tuesday.

The employment cost index, a gauge of total compensation for civilian workers, increased 0.6% in the second quarter. The cost of pay and benefits jumped 2.8% in the 12-month period ended in June, the highest yearly growth rate in nearly a decade.

Wages alone gained 2.8% over the past 12 months, which also reflected a near 10-year high.

Growth in benefits outpaced wages in the second quarter. Wages were up 0.5%. Benefits, which cover health care, retirement plans and other items, jumped 0.9%. That marks the fastest pace in four years.

Meanwhile, private workers fared better than the public sector. Total compensation in the private industry rose 2.9%, while government workers saw a 2.3% increase.

In a separate report, the Commerce Department said the price index for personal consumption expenditures rose 2.2% year-over-year in June, another sign that inflation is trending higher. The Federal Reserve plans to raise rates two more times in 2018, bringing the annual total to four, to counter rising inflation."

What will the future bring?

Seems like just yesterday the movie Idiocracy came out. The premise was that hi-IQ achievers were finding it harder and harder to breed, whereas the low-IQ no achievers were procreating in droves. This led to a true dumbing down of society and eventually corporations like Gatoraid ran everything. What's an average intellect to do but take over the world. We also discussed the need to institutionalize the homeless. John has vast experience working with Austin TX's homeless population and has some surprising insights.

Gerald Celente stopped by today to discuss the rising tide of currency collapses. It seems that just about everywhere you look there's a country who's currency is on the skids. Iran, Venezuela, Argentina, Russia and the list goes on. No surprises here, just more fallout from the ultimate failed US Dollar short. Where it stops nobody knows, but there's a lot more turmoil ahead. And don't forget about major internet censorship kicking in. First they came for Alex Jones...
