Lior Gantz joined us to discuss the inevitable shift of economic dominance from West (US) to East (China). It's no secret that China's economy is set to overtake the US economy in the not too distant future. China has a number of initiatives such as the Belt and Road project that will help cement its dominance for decades to come. But we're always reminded of the best laid plans of mice and men... China has been poised to achieve world dominance several times in the past and has always messed up at the last minute. Will this time be different?

Dr. Richard Ebeling joined us today for an in depth discussion of the role of the state, free markets and Austrian Economics. For decades, Dr. Ebeling has been at the movement's forefront. Now at long last it's starting to get traction. He believes that the best cure for Internet censorship and our relationship with China is to let the market work. Eventually it will bring about the desired results, whether it's freeing up the Internet or bringing peace between the US and China. Controversial but well thought out. He will be back with us again soon.

Kenneth Ameduri of CrushtheStreet.com believes that Bitcoin will make its widely anticipated return and again throw off impressive returns. Prices are getting close to a bottom and will reverse course starting a new bull market. Cannabis stocks got slammed a couple of weeks ago, but they're still a major growth market and you should be ready for the next advance. It's expanding all over the country and the world. Michigan just approved recreational Cannabis and there's over a dozen countries looking to do the same. It could be the next great investment wave. But be ready for increased market volatility, it's probably here to stay.

According to Karen Kataline, when Democrats gain control of the house in January, they will be fighting harder than ever to convince us that law-abiding citizens shouldn’t be trusted to have guns to defend themselves. Not long ago, they balked bitterly at the accusation that their real goal was to repeal the Second Amendment. Now, many have finally started to admit that this is precisely what they had in mind all along. Good for them. Better for us. They are easier to beat when they tell the truth. Unfortunately, that’s never very often.

We caught up with our good friend David Morgan today. He's bullish on gold and believes that the annual seasonal rally has begun. Longer term he's especially bullish in light of the supply situation, or peak gold. He believes that recycling of precious metals, especially those contained in smart phones, will become more widespread. Lot's more here.

There's a reason why Gwen Preston calls herself the Resource Maven. She's a believer in the long term viability of the mining industry. If you don't believe it, look around your home and think what would be left if we didn't have copper. While it's been trading below $3 a pound for quite a while, it can't stay that way, because demand will keep increasing and we will hit a supply shortage. New sources will have to be developed and that's a very capital intensive endeavor. So somewhere in the future is $4 and higher copper, economics will eventually dictate it. 

Gwen's expecting the usual seasonal bump for gold. After that it's anyone's guess. But don't worry too much about the Millennial generations inability to understand precious metals. They chased Bitcoin to the stratosphere and they'll eventually chase gold as well.

President Donald J. Trump said he wants to “drain the swamp.” But is it a swamp or an ocean? It’s about time the American people had some hard facts regarding the federal bureaucracy.

In Operation Drain the Swamp, Adam exposes all of it. We showcase who receives how much, where they work, and what they do. Most importantly, he reveals how much these bureaucrats cost the American taxpayer.

During the 2016 presidential election, the supporters of Donald Trump on the right—and even those supporting Bernie Sanders on the left—felt that the “system was rigged” for insiders. Adam highlights the facts and stories to prove it. In Operation Drain the Swamp, there's also a step-by-step guide to civil service reforms.

Just when you thought it was safe to go outside, there's major rioting in Paris and other European cities. Is this a case of they're mad as hell and not gonna take it any more or have we reached a tipping point. Elections seem to produce the most unlikely of candidates who say many things but do the same old stuff once they arrive in office. What's an Austrian Economist to do? And what about Trump and Xi, a match made in Hades. It's okay because as a charming economist once said, somewhat seriously, In the long run we're all dead.

Raghee Horner is an astute student of the markets. Right now she's down on tech but high on Walmart. We're in a market where staples will rule. It's more of a defensive play on the Fangs, but push comes to shove and consumers need to buy food and drugs and tech is often optional. Oil looks to be weak for the foreseeable future as Old Man Oil keeps on Fracking along. Corn has been weak but that could change shortly with new Ethanol mandates. Beans future pricing depends upon the US - China Trade War. Lots more here and don't forget about the dividend aristocrats.

Andrew Weekly is extremely bullish about uranium. This energy source has been the Rodney Dangerfield of the energy industry since the nuclear disaster at Fukushima. However, the world needs more electricity from carbon free sources and the newest generation of power plants it truly failsafe. No more Chernobyl's. Prices are starting to go up as excess supplies are worked off and production has been cut. And let's not forget China's nuclear buildout.

With headlines like "The Betrayal of White Women Voters," it's obvious that the left is playing identity politics right up to 2020 elections. Today on Townhall.com, Amy Clark of the Moms March Movement and Moms March USA wrote that "Vote-Shaming is the New 'Get Back in the Kitchen'", which she says is not only wrong, "it's shocking".

Black Friday-
Retailers earn 40% of their sales in this short holiday season time frame. And many of us never cast a shadow in the doorway of a store. We shop online.
Seeing the pictures of Black Friday, with people pressed up against the outside of store windows, after fighting for space to park, like some scene from the zombie show The Walking Dead, who really wants to go to a store and be part of that?
More and more Americans are shopping online, almost exclusively, and not just at Christmas. It’s easier, the selection is bigger, there’s no teenaged sales clerk standing nearby, busily NOT helping me, and sometimes it’s cheaper. For many stores, especially those that offer little or nothing as part of their unique shopping experience, this is becoming a monstrous problem that will only get worse over time. The current crop of big spenders – the Boomers – increase their online spending each year, but the young set lives online.

As the Echo Boomers take over the position of top spending cohort in the years to come, the stores want to make sure they’re in line to maintain their share. Or go the route of Sears and disappear.
4 Trends to watch:

1. Will in-store purchases increase this season? An August, 2018 In-Store Holiday Shopping survey of 1,200 American consumers found that 88% of shoppers intend to shop in physical stores this season.

2. Unique shopping experiences expected. Shoppers today are happy to drive to physical stores seeking “an experience,” as opposed to simple transactions.

3. How much will online purchasing increase? “The second quarter of 2018 e-commerce estimate increased 15.2% from the second quarter of 2018, while total retail sales increased 5.7% in the same period,” according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

4. The multi-channel sales is the wave of the future. Various sales approaches include providing customers with an integrated shopping experience. In addition to brick and mortar locations, shoppers have access to products online from a desktop or their mobile phone.

But every story has at least two sides. While sales may be good news for the retailers and the stock holders, the bad news is in a new survey of over 2,000 U.S. consumers from buyback site Decluttr showing some 66 million consumers will wake up with a hangover of more debt after the holidays. Christmas, along with everything else has gotten more expensive. Americans are attempting to keep up with the increases by taking on more debt. Thanks to increases in mortgage debt, auto loan debt, and credit card debt, Americans now have more debt than ever before.

In August, 2018 the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Center for Microeconomic Data released its Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit. The report shows that total household debt in the U.S. increased by $82 billion in the second quarter, which means Americans now collectively carry $13.19 trillion in debt. One thing is for sure. This is not sustainable.

One of our favorite guests Darryl R. Schoon joined us for a continuing dialog about the financial collapse that never really ended. We're about done with intermission and then things are really going to get interesting. Capitalism requires that interest be paid on investments, which means that profits must continue to increase just to pay debt service. Unfortunately, we're at a period of time where we collectively can't afford the interest tab any longer and that's where the fun begins. System crashes and breakdowns become the norm. And we're talking a new normal that few but Darryl and FSN community members have a glimmer of. Buckle your seatbelts, Darryl spells it all out for you.

The idea came easy for former Navy Officer Laura Deming. After hearing Hillary Clinton called Trump supporters “a basket of deplorables” she new it was time to act. That was followed by Peter Strzok texting his friend Lisa Page, “I’m in a Walmart in Southern Virginia and I can just smell the Trump support”. Thus was born - 'Deplorable Fragrances' (www.cult45llc.com).

"I figured I'd create a scent to go with the Trump movement," says Deming. Now she and her business partner, and former host of 'RedNationRising', Timothy Shea are selling 'Deplorable' & 'Deplorable Dude' perfume and cologne coast to coast (see short client bios below).

"We needed to make sure the Trump support we are seeing also had a fragrance that every liberal could smell," says Shea. "With Deplorable & Deplorable Dude' we have such a scent and one that's a perfect Christmas gift for the Trump supporter in your family."

Cult45 LLC., is a veteran own business and 'Deplorable' and 'Deplorable Dude' fragrances are made entirely in the USA. Be sure to check it out if you're stuck on a gift this holiday season.

Will Bitcoin ever come back? It's down 80 percent from its peak of 19400. We predicted a crash on December 17, 2017, just two days after its all time high. There's more trouble ahead for the gold standard of cryptos. Will this industry even survive? Can crypto developers hang on? This year last time crypto developers could name their price, now not so much. Just goes to show you never can tell.

When we last spoke with author Mark Shaw the Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, Jr., had agreed to reopen the investigation of Dorothy Kilgallen's suspicious death. She had the inside track into the JFK assassination and it has long been believed that she knew too much. Through reader feedback, Mark found the original transcripts of the Jack Ruby trial and they are shocking. Evidently Ruby witnessed the assassination in Dealy Plaza and his ambush murder of Oswald in the Dallas Police Garage had been pre-planned. There's lots of other bombshells in this book that have never been revealed before. Definitely worth the read.

Well maybe not, but maybe yes. Even though the market is up today, odds are according to John that it won't stay there. Gold and silver should be the beneficiaries of the market gyrations, eventually. John doesn't know when, but he knows unsustainable markets when he sees them, and he's seeing them now, bigly!

We just witnessed tremendous wild fires in California and a stupendous drop in Bitcoin to just $3661. California has a fiscal wildfire just getting started due to the new tax law, which will see record numbers of Californians abandoning the state to avoid their confiscatory tax rates. It will end badly as well for Bitcoin. The entire crypto space is unlikely to survive the next conflagration. It ain't gonna be pretty, that's for sure.

Our good friend Ned Schmidt returns. He's bearish as ever on the fake IP driven stock market. He doesn't believe it has staying power or represents anything of value. Is he right? Gold has been dragging along at the low 1200's and silver even worse, but Ned thinks it's all about to change. Will the stock market return to realistic valuation levels or is this a case of the market remaining irrational longer than you can remain solvent?We'll soon find out.

Wayne Jett has written a new report discussing the noticeable uptick in intensity of political activity since the November 6 U. S. elections. Creatures of the D. C. swamp, some of whom have serious crimes for which to account, are writhing with anxiety as they estimate whether Donald Trump's powers as
anti-Establishment U. S. president have shrunk or strengthened in the
wake of glaring voting fraud in Arizona, Florida, Georgia and perhaps
California and elsewhere.

Trump Fires Attorney General Jeff Sessions Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wednesday, following a yearlong public shaming campaign that has raised questions about whether the president improperly interfered with the Justice Department’s inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Trump, who requested Sessions' resignation, named the attorney general's chief of staff Matthew Whitaker to serve as interim attorney general. Whitaker was Sessions' chief of staff and had been considered for a variety of jobs in the Trump administration, including the No. 2 post at Justice or as White House counsel. And now all hell is breaking loose with Democrats threatening new investigations and trying to get Whitaker to recuse himself concerning the Mueller Investigation. However, their efforts should prove unsuccessful according to John, it's clearly within the President's power to do so.

Gordon T. Long has been watching auto sales for quite some time. Debt keeps going up and now sales are declining. Corporate debt has escalated and it has become a giant equity to debt swap. It can't keep going the way it's going and it won't. According to Gordon it's all just a matter of timing. The Fed will have to reverse course and flood the system with liquidity once again. Daddy where do business cycles come from?
