"Ranting" Andy Hoffman arrived back from Freedom Fest in Las Vegas ready for "bear." There's a new phenomena sweeping the globe, negative interest rates. Hard to believe, but that's where some bankrupt, "Too Big To Fail Bank" actually charges you for the honor of storing your money and betting it on derivatives (or some other highly creative way they've devised to lose your money and get bailed out yet again.) It's obvious there's no end to the financial sector insanity that's been taking place around the globe. Where it will end is anyone's guess. But nothing makes sense anymore and that's exactly the way the Elite financial rulers like it.

Daniel Amerman used to work with Mortgage Backed Securities, before they became a tool of the devil. He believes the government will stop at nothing to steal the populace's wealth, but there are things that you can do to protect yourself. However, it will become increasingly difficult to do so once things get worse. Daniel believes owning gold and silver is a good option, but there are certain things the government will do to diminish their value. How the end game of this crisis will work out is anyone's guess, but things are definitely going to change, and you need to examine every possible outcome.

Vern Value and Mo Mentum discuss the economy and several stocks they think look good on a value basis. Among the three picks, PIR (Pier One Imports) has risen from the dead. At one point, it was trading at just 15 cents per share and today it's up around $16, quite a return for those who had the courage to get in when they were on their death bed. Also discussed were, NGS (National Gas Services) and RBN (Robbins & Meyers). Fortunately this was a show where Val and Mo embraced moderation, so their speech patterns are noticably more coherent and their shared state of mind is far more coherent. Entertaining as always!

I interviewed Jeff Berwick and Gary Gibson at Freedom Fest, separately, although you'd think they were together. We spent a lot of time together, and there was no shortage of topics and alternative financial luminaries present at the conference. Peter Schiff, Doug Casey, Steve Forbes, Gary Johnson, Judge Andrew Napolitano and so many more. But Gary and Jeff are all about practical advice about protecting your wealth and keeping it out of the hands of the government. Jeff's a big proponent of second passports, and Gary's been travelling around the world looking for safe harbor. Either way, they both agree the US Government's appetite for your wealth is going to increase greatly, as the depression deepens. So better to be prepared than to continue about your daily affairs, blind to the probabilities ahead.

At Freedom Fest 2012 we bumped into Andy Schectman, a show sponsor and President of Miles Franklin. He's been selling shiny metals since 1990, and he's extremely knowledgeable about the precious metals markets. Andy explained there's virtually no gold coming into the secondary market. People who own gold and silver are not selling even when prices dip. This is a relatively new development which shows that while the price may fluctuate , the actual participants ignore the news and continue to accumulate. The mints don't have enormous supplies available for purchase; they can hardly keep up with demand. That's why putting off the purchase of metals could have you entering the market at the worst possible moment.  Contact Miles Franklin, they've also got great overseas storage programs available.

We literally bumped into Trace Mayer of www.HowToVanish.com and www.RunToGold.com. He made it to Vegas for Freedom Fest. We discussed a very interesting new phenomena that may possibly become the new gold standard of currencies, BitCoin. This is an open source currency that is extremely flexible, resistant to inflation and completely anonymous. It is a store of wealth and a medium of exchange and its popularity appears to be rapidly increasing. We had heard of it before, but dismissed it as a noble effort to help people escape the tyranny of central banks. But it has continued on and increased in value from 5 cents per BitCoin to $7.70 in just a few short years. And its acceptance appears to be increasing as well. It's spreading worldwide, with more and more merchants accepting it as payment, at a variety of locations. We're going to investigate the BitCoin phenomena further and report back.

We caught up with our old friend Peter Schiff at Freedom Fest. While he was on a panel, security was sicked on Doug Casey for smoking a cigar (Cubano of course) while participating on stage. Freedom took a major hit when Doug was forced to extinguish his rich stogie. But as Doug said, he was on someone else's property, so he had to comply with the management's wishes. I want to know who the Buzzkill was that turned him in. 

Peter made the case for limited government and eliminated socialism in his usual eloquent manner. Too Big To Fail Banks are not the product of capitalism, but socialism. Capitalism never failed, as it has been utilized in the US for many years. Eventually, the lesson will have to be learned if we are ever to have prosperity again and that's why Peter trudges on.

John Schmidt has been shooting pool since he turned 18. He won the US Pool Open in 2006.  He's known as Mr. 400, having sunk 400 balls in a row, without a miss. He believes in learning from the masters and he carries that attitude through when it comes to investing and preserving his wealth in precious metals. Initially, his fellow competitors scoffed at the notion of a fiat currency collapse. But as the world gets closer and closer to this cataclysmic event, more of his colleagues have accepted his wisdom. John's got a great story and a winning attitude.

Ranting Andy Hoffman and I caught up with each other at Freedom Fest 2012 in Las Vegas. Besides life imitating reality TV, the fraud and the refusal to see what's really going on in the world, Andy was helping to educate a financial planner from North Carolina on the ills of the fiat money system and how the world each day gets closer to the precipice. And yes, Mrs. Hoffman still watches House Hunters and loves every minute. Perhaps that's the key, we all know its fake, but it's fun so why not?

We caught up with Sprott's Rick Rule in Las Vegas at Freedom Fest 2012. He's not the least bit concerned about the precious metals price gyrations, and he's actively buying metals for his personal portfolio. He believes that Contrarian investors eventually score the largest gains but that it takes guts and a lot of perseverance. Joe "Two-Pack" better have both or he should buy another can of beer and hit the road. Rick's got one of the best jobs around; he's doing what he loves and as a result has never worked a day in his life. Just don't ask him about tech investing, he's sticking to what he knows best.

If it's one thing we like on FSN, its consistency and Nick Santiago, of www.InTheMoneyStocks.com is nothing if not consistent. From our first interview, he's been certain that gold and silver would stay in their corrections until the Fall of 2012. Twice in the past two weeks it looked like gold was ready to break out, and both times, the rallies were quickly put down. But we're getting to the point where it's print or die, and faced with such choices, the Fed will always print. It's in their charter, not really, but it should be. The elitists specialize in obfuscation and trying to get the public to sell any investment at the worst possible moment. And this time's no different. Patience in this market is certainly a virtue.

Danielle Park joined us today for the Park Perspective. The tales of corruption and exploitation in the financial sector keep getting worse and worse. From fixing the LIBOR interest rates to laundering money for drug cartels, is there anything the financial sector won't do to make a buck? But Danielle believes that there's an end coming to the bailouts, and it will be soon. The immorality of the system and it's destructive influences are becoming plain to everyone's sight. The question is, how will change come from outside the system, to rebuild it and make it honest and beneficial to society? Perhaps, events will soon unfold that make it impossible for the financial system to continue its business as usual ways, and it will become a matter of reform or die.

"Ranting" Andy doesn't believe in coincidences, just like FDR didn't, and just like I don't. Bank "glitches" seem to be multiplying and spreading across the globe. Has the system been compromised or have the banks just run out of money? Either way, the situation appears to be worsening and nobody is talking about it. Seems like it's not being covered by the Main Stream Media or anyone else. Why would that be? The truth needs to be told now, not after the collapse.

I was interviewed recently by Theresa Kuhn of www.LivingWealthyRadio.com. We discussed the state of our current economy and the fact that most people are completely unprepared for the changes that are about to hit, especially the "Baby Boomers" who are getting set to retire shortly. Besides the fact that there isn't enough Social Security or Medicare funds to go around, private pensions have either been eliminated or greatly reduced. This means that the individual will be responsible for financing a larger share of their retirement than ever before. And where's the money going to come from anyway? The fact is that for most "Boomers" they will never experience the luxury of retirement, whether they want to or not. Many will be forced to live with their children. Others will suffer greatly. It's time to except the new reality and start planning.

Forgiveness of debts, as well as sins, is specifically addressed in the Bible. The Book of Leviticus provides that every 25-50 years there will be a Jubilee, where all slaves and prisoners are freed, sins and debts are foregiven and property returned. Later Pope Boniface VIII decreed that a Jubilee shall take place every 50 years, and that extraordinary Jubilees would be decreed when necessary. If ever there was a time when the world needed an extraordinary Jubilee, it's now! Debt, at all levels of society, keeps going higher and higher with no end in sight. Currency units are now produced with reckless abandon. And to what purpose? It's all part of an effort to solve the greatest debt crisis in history, by going more into debt. Doesn't sound like it's going to work out very well. Whereas, in a Jubilee, we could eliminate all debt or most it, in one act, thus dramatically reduce prison populations by releasing non-violent offenders and saving billions.

Eventually, the world's leaders will realize that there isn't another way out and will be forced to go back to their religious routes to find the solution.

Professor Nick Economides touched base with the Financial Survival Network today from Athens, Greece. Forgive the sound quality, the economy isn't the Greek's only problem. Prof. Economides foresaw the Euro's problems many years ago, before most others. So while, we may not agree that growth is the cureall for the world's collapsing economic system, it is important that we to listen to the informed few who knew saw what was coming, before all the "Johnny Come Lately's." However, there is a growing chorus people around the world, who believe that the debt is just to large to be managed and the underlying problem must be addressed. 

Prof. Economides says that the situation in Greece is currently calm. He believes further austerity measures will be implemented and that there is little chance that Greece will go back to the drachma. He thinks this would be an unmitigated disaster. And he may well be correct.

Ty Andros joined us for another weekly wrap after a brief summer hiatus. Liborgate is the word on everyone's lips these days. Seems the governments and central banks have been rigging the LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) market for years. Over $700 trillion in loans, securities, and derivatives get priced according to this key rate. Why it's coming out now is anyone's guess, but it seems to this untrained observer as if there's alot more coming down the pike that's even worse. Not to mention the fact that Spain's banks haven't really been bailed out, despite the headlines to the contrary.

Off to California where the governor, who's been detached from reality for many years, has decided it's time to condemn through eminent domain, all the non-federal mortgages on the books in the Golden State and sell them off to hedge funds around the world, to bail out the underwater homeowners. While it may sound a bit like a juibilee as mentioned in the Bible, somehow, we don't recall the hedge funds playing a role. Then all those silver shorts belong to none other than JP Morgan-Chase, according to noted silver analyst Ted Butler. What else is going on that matters any more?

It's July 4th, the day we celebrate our country's independence from England. While this country was founded on the concept of individual liberty, the individual's sovereignty and limited government, things have changed quite a bit, to say the least. But we still have much to be grateful for and we need to find ways to become more independent from petty bureaucrats like Nanny Bloomberg who wants to control your entire life. That's why I highly recommend a trip to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in beautiful Simi Valley, CA. The Library sits atop a high point over looking the Valley and it feels like it was created for this man's memorial. The entire tour is touching, moving and a tribute to a real leader, who may have used a teleprompter, but didn't really need one. It made me long for the days when people were optimistic and believed in something. But, if we all assert our own personal independence those days will return.

June was a volatile month. Everything was getting killed until the 29th, when boom, gold, silver, etc., all came roaring back to life. Mickey and I believe that the summer will provide much of the same in most markets, with little actually getting accomplished in the real world. People are far too busy planning vacations. going to the beach and just generally chilling out, to be fixated upon the value of the dollar, the price of gold or natural gas. Of course, the summer is always a great time to be a market manipulator, what with generally low volume and thinly traded markets. One of the biggest surprises in June was natural gas which traded up to $2.76. T. Boone Pickens, a very savvy investor and "Oil man", is predicting $115 oil and $3.75 natural gas by the end of 2012. At this point in the evolution or devolution of Western Civilization, nothing would surprise us.

Elijah Johnson, the 16-year-old seemingly smarter than the Bernank, joins us again today, Monday, July 2, 2012. Elijah has now interviewed quite a few noteworthy people, and what he's learned is that the global economic crisis is inevitable. Elijah has become financially aware and acknowledges the Federal Reserve as a banking cartel. The U.S. is over 16 trillion and counting in debt, and there's really no way to pay it down. According to Elijah, and I must agree, we are left with two options: print more money or default on the debt. Either way, we are currently in a losing battle. Printing more money to pay off our debt will cause the dollar to crash and defaulting will send the U.S. credit rating down the drain. Precious metals are the least risky assets that will protect you from the impending doom.

It was time for a Monday Rant with "Ranting" Andy Hoffman and his cohort Bill Holter. Bill believes the world's central banks are getting ready to revalue gold upward to provide for the final bailout. The news is starting to spread, and while Andy and I believe that something is brewing, we're not ready to chalk it up to mass financial sanity taking hold at the world's premier money printers. The system is a fake and a fraud, just like the popular show House Hunters. All the drama and conflict in choosing a house is completely staged, as is the drama concerning bailouts, banks and governments. Perhaps as Bill indicates, the final chapter has already been written and the bankster and powers that be are waiting for the exact moment to spring it upon the citizens of the world. No one could be at all surprised by such an action. At FSN, we are ahead of the curve and try to deconstruct all the news so you find out what's really going on. And what's really going on now is that there are no White Knights to save us. If gold does transform from a "Barbarous Relic" to the "coin of the realm" you'll know it before most.

Freedom Fest 2012 is being held in Las Vegas, Nevada at Bally's Hotel and Casino. If you're planning to attend, please send me an email at kl@kerrylutz.com. We're having a get together, with Robert Ian and other frequent guests of the show. There are at least 10 people attending Freedom Fest who make frequent appearances on the Financial Survival Network. We'll either have a lunch or a happy hour with drinks and hors d'oeuvres. 

Obamacare, if you haven't heard yet, has been affirmed by the Supreme Court. In retrospect it's not going to matter unless people finally get it through their heads that the US is losing its last vestiges of freedom. If it becomes a rallying cry and a battlefront in the war to take back our freedoms, then it will serve a constructive purpose. But if people keep watching American Idol and eating their junk food, then things will continue to get far worse, and the eventual collapse will just come all that much faster. We'll know soon enough. 

See you in Las Vegas, July 11 through July 14!

Mark Skousen, founder of Freedom Fest and editor of Forecasts and Strategies talked about Obamacare's ratification by the Supreme Court and what it means for all of us. As he quoted, "Everything is now either mandated or prohibited." Where does that leave the individual? We need to look at the issues of liberty and engage in a genuine civilized debate. Demonization, trading of insults, and failing to properly analyze and discuss issues is leading to an ignorant and uncivil society. There's no requirement that you love your adversaries, but there is a need for mutual respect, which has been completely lacking from Western democracies for decades. 

Information on Freedom Fest can be found at www.FreedomFest.com. The conference starts on July 11, 2012 with a guest reception and continues through to July 14, 2012 at Bally's Las Vegas. We look forward to seeing FSN listeners there.

John Manfreda believes that oil prices are headed higher, especially when the next round of money printing begins in earnest. John recently authored a report that explores the trends and future prices in depth. He's unconcerned about US and European demand, as he believes the developing world has more than picked up the slack and will continue to do so. Oil seems to have fallen into an interim sweet spot of $75-85. Each time the price has gone above that $85, it's been beaten back, and it hasn't gone below $75 for long periods of time. One thing is certain, the world will need ever increasing amounts of oil, and while we may not suffer shortages due to so-called peak oil, the costs of extraction will increase over time.
