We spoke with Max Porterfield at the Metals Investing Forum in Vancouver, BC. Much has been happening since we last spoke. Callinex is unique among the junior mining sector. It has been around since 1927 - ninety years. The company has been recapitalized and is now well situated to take advantage of a booming zinc sector. There's just 29 days of above ground supply, which means that supply issues could come into play. Since it's mostly a by-product of other mines, sufficient attention has been paid to expanding output. The price has recently risen to $1.16 per pound and could be going much higher, perhaps as high as $2.00 per pound. Which makes Callinex's portfolio of proven projects that much more valuable. Combined with a seasoned battle-tested management group, it looks like Callinex has found its way.

Most history books and biographies haven’t told Teddy’s full story—that our bombastic twenty-sixth president was created from the ways of trappers and thieves in the Wild West.

In a new book Forging a President: How the Wild West Created Teddy Roosevelt by William Hazelgrove sets the record straight. Using Roosevelt’s own writings and reflections, Forging a President shows how heartbreak – and life in the Badlands – formed the spirit of T.R. It's amazing how much you don't know about someone you think you know a lot about.

Robert Bakke, says his hope for Trump is fading rapidly, and for a pointed reason. “The Johnson Amendment marked the unraveling of America,” says Bakke, “Unless Trump follows through on his pledge to destroy it, Trump will fail.” Bakke, who says he avoids organized religion at all costs, is referring to legislation that was introduced back in 1954 when Texas Senator, Lyndon Johnson, was fighting to retain his senate seat. While being challenged by Texan, Dudley Dougherty (who was supported by a non-profit organization) Johnson introduced an amendment to the federal tax code, banning charitable organizations from supporting political candidates. The amendment became law and overflowed to prohibit churches and pastors from supporting political candidates. “Just imagine what would happen if women were banned from politics,” says Bakke.

Bakke says America’s success was a direct result of keeping Biblical principles at the forefront. “This isn’t about religion,” says Bakke, “It’s about everyone working together, just as a football team needs a playbook to keep everyone on the same page. You don’t have to like the play, but check the results. The Bible was America’s playbook, but the Johnson Amendment took it away.” Bakke says Trump doesn’t stand a chance unless the principals that built America are reinfused into our government. “Check the divorce rate, check the economy, check the debt clock,” says Bakke, “The Bible says a nation shall never borrow money, but now we’re 20-trillion in debt. That better scare you.”

Noted author and speaker David Horowitz was all set to appear at Berkley a/k/a Berserkerly but the administration had other ideas. They put up all sorts of obstacles, both financial and procedural. As a result the event was cancelled and the college will remain a safe-space for now. David wants the DOJ to crack down on this state of affairs and withhold all government funding from these so-called institutions of higher learning.

Andrew Zatlin is upbeat about hiring and the economic situation of the country. Trump is transitioning the country away from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan into things that are directly involved in the US's interests. Trump's pro-business team know how to run things. Unfortunately, the Congress has been resistant and unaccommodating. Can Trump get his program through? Let's see what happens next.

Is Trump about to change your 401(k)'s biggest tax break? The Trump administration is embarking on new efforts to study and possibly dismantle some of President Obama’s tax and financial regulations.

Lawmakers are looking at dramatically changing these retirement plans. President Donald Trump was elected, in part, because of his championing of income tax reform, with promises of a simplified structure of tax rates for individuals and lower tax rates on corporations. Yet at no time during the campaign did the president signal that the way his administration would pay for those moves would involve taking away one of the most popular and widely used tax breaks in the income tax system.

2016 turned out to be a pretty decent year, economically speaking anyway. The latest 2017 economic numbers are decidedly downcast. Can Trump's proposed tax plan fix it? The current recovery has been going on for 9 years, almost a life time. A recession now would lead to even higher deficits and more pressure on the Fed and the government. Eventually, there will be a day of reckoning. It's not if, but when. A recession will bring us that much closer. If the US doesn't grow than no other country will grow either.

Eddie Ghabour is a bull and Trump's Tax reform proposal has made him even more so. There's a lot of great things contained therein:

1. Reducing corp tax rate to 15% will be a huge windfall that will get reinvested into the economy.

2. What is not talked about enough that I feel has a huge impact is the corp tax rate affects the small business in America that are pass throughs. This is huge for the small business owner.

3. Simplifying the code to 3 brackets makes a lot of sense. It's too complicated as it stands now.

4. Doing away with AMT is another windfall that is well overdue.

5. In summary this is a pro growth tax plan that is a big change from where we stand that has the potential for big positive results.

6. If this passes I believe the bull market is here to stay for the foreseeable future.

But will Congress pass it in some form?

He’s won on over 76% of his investments. Oil looks like its heading higher and this is good news for the Canadian Dollar. The Euro should be heading lower.

Bryan Slusarchuk is a director of First Cobalt (TSXV: FCC & US: FTSSF). We used to think that adequate supplies of Lithium were required to power the growing numbers of electric vehicles. And while at the present time Lithium is the preferred energy storage battery component, Cobalt is every bit as important. The supplies are rapidly shrinking and what we do get is often the product child mining slaves. As with many vital minerals and elements, Cobalt is often a bi-product of base metal mines. When the underlying metal becomes uneconomical to mine, Cobalt products stops as well.  First Cobalt is out to change all that. They've got an amazing project in Canada - Keeley Frontier that has yielded large amounts of Cobalt and Silver in the past. Now restarting it is a major goal. It's blue skies ahead for the blue metal.

We touched base with Avi Gilburt, an expert cycle trader. He's adamant that the market is headed higher, as high as 2600 for the S&P and even more so for the Russell 2000. Gold is facing one more test/shakeout, perhaps very shortly and then will begin a major new move upward. Oil is going to shock the experts and could hit $60 a little later in the year. Finally, the greenback is in a multi-year consolidation period. It's gone about as high as it's going to for now. An exciting forecast for exciting markets.

When Puerto Rico went bust last year Uncle Sam was there to give PR a temporary bailout. Can the all of the states' chronically underfunded pension plans expect the same? Illinois and NJ are getting close to the tipping point, so something will have to be done sooner rather than later. 

Playing the downside on these bloated markets will eventually reap huge rewards. But can a non-professional investor win big? Probably not as much as the real pros. There's nothing worse than being right at the wrong time. We've all been there. 

A note about those leveraged ETF's. They can hurt you big time due to their reliance on options, which lose value and become worthless over time. There's no clear disclosure on the topic so you need to know before investing/gambling.

Bill Tatro is skeptical about Trump's ability to get his agenda through Congress. It's not like running your own real estate empire. You've got to get people to do things for you and vice versa. Is Trump going back on TPP? What about all these jobs, are they real? And Syria is a mess and the chem attack could very well be a false flag. And look who Trump is taking advice from, his liberal son-in-law. Bannon looks like he's on the outs. But it's early and you never know what could happen next.

George Matheis, Jr. has trained policemen and swat teams, so when he speaks I listen. There's been a recent outbreak of snowflake riots. They block highways and often attack conservatives at random. George explains that you have the advantage as long as your car is moving. Keep adequate distance between yourself and the vehicle ahead, which will give you a way out. We talked about tactical pens. George favors carrying a metal pen that doesn't look tactical. That way you can easily go through airports hassle free. The key is to always have a plan and be aware of your situation--situational awareness.

Wayne Allyn Root joined us today. He believes that Trump's first 100 days have been a resounding success. He cautions not to believe the popularity polls as they are the same organizations who were shocked at Hillary Clinton's resounding loss. They just don't learn. Trump's had major victories in regulatory roll back, immigration enforcement and national defense. Wayne thinks that the Obamacare repeal effort was a temporary setback that will soon be corrected. The snowflakes will just have to learn how to adapt to the new paradigm.

One of the nation’s most successful and respected independent financial advisors, David Scranton has been specializing in the universe of income-generating savings and investment strategies for over 15 years. Prior to that, he followed a typical business model based heavily on stock market-based investment strategies. But in late 1999, Scranton’s knowledge of stock market history enabled him to foresee the coming 2000 stock market collapse and the onset of a new 20-plus year secular bear market cycle. Since changing his business model, Scranton has built a thriving personal practice based on “defensive” income-based financial strategies designed to help protect clients from the dramatic stock market fluctuations and economic uncertainties of the past 15 years. He’s also taught hundreds of advisors nationwide how to do the same for their clients.
