Gold and silver are getting slammed. However, John sees a silver lining. The speculators are being driven out of the market, the paper market that is, and the seasonal factors are looking up. Every person interested in precious metals should be looking at the Commitment of Traders Report. The COT is almost always correct as a predictor of future. This time will be no different.

Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute’s Executive Director John Heubusch joins us to discuss media bias against Trump especially in light of the pending investigation/attacks from the Media.

Reagan won the American people over because he was open and direct. Heubusch implores Trump stick to Reagan’s blueprint if he hopes to succeed in the way his predecessor did.

In a recent piece for the Daily Caller, John Heubusch argues: “To be like Reagan, Trump should be unwavering in his promotion of American principles...Reagan consistently demonstrated strength, but wrapped it in optimism, humility and humor. He knew the American people would respond when he reminded them of this country’s great past, and its promising future.”

Gold back down to 200 moving average. -Each time it’s done that it gone higher. Markets are breaking down. Silver is lagging because it's typical speculators are heading over to crypto currencies. The agricultural index just hit an all time high. You won't be able to afford a ribeye steak next year. Get ready. It will all become apparent this fall after the harvest.

Our good friend Jason Hartman joined us for a look at the illusion of wealth through debt creation or fake wealth. Has the US been getting poorer or richer since it went off the gold standard. On the one hand, technology has certainly been a prime mover of improving living standards. On the other, stay at home mothers are virtually a thing of the past. How do you reconcile the two?

On a related top, self-liquidating debt on investment properties is on the of the best and most profitable ways to play the currency debasement game. You have an income producing property whose cash flow will continue to increase, while the tenant effectively pays off your mortgage. 

Unfortunately, everyone has gotten in on the game as witnessed by the fact that there's a shortage of these cash flow properties in the market now.

Nick Santiago is one savvy trader. He was spot-on as far the stock market going higher, last time we spoke. He believes that there's still some life left in the old bull, mainly because there's so much pessimism out there. The dollar is going to recoup its recent losses and this will lead to a continued breakdown in commodities. Gold and silver will continue trading in their current ranges for the foreseeable future. Euro is doomed after all. Much more here to digest.

Helicopter Moms aren't enough to shield college students from adversity. Safe spaces just don't work. According to the Center for Collegiate Mental Health at Penn State University, which gathers data from 139 institutions, the number of students seeking help jumped 50 percent between 2015 and 2016. Of those students who sought help, 26 percent said they had intentionally hurt themselves; 33.2 percent had considered suicide, numbers higher than the previous year.

And according to the 2016 UCLA Higher Education Research Institute survey of freshmen, nearly 12 percent say they are "frequently" depressed.

More than 75 percent of all mental health conditions begin before the age of 24, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, which is why college is such a critical time.

There's nothing normal about this economy! The economy doesn't appear strong. And yet the Fed keeps raising rates. Sub-prime auto loans are going down. Credit card debt is escalating as well as student loan debt. Where's the economy heading? Jordan believes the stock market will keep going higher, but questions whether health care reform and tax reform will ever go through.

Sharyl Attkisson is a respected investigative reporter who's just released another book, “The Smear: How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think and How You Vote” The book chronicles a number of different players involved in the DC Smear Machine, how they carrry out their often slanderous activities and why the press is so compliant, often carrying the water for known decelvers. It's a distressing state of affairs that has been getting worse for the past three decades. It's gotten to the point that you can't trust anything the media reports. To not fall pray, you must become a critical thinker and be aware of the tricks they use to control your thoughts.

The longer the system keeps going, the more we have to question how much longer it can continue. As Jefferson so aptly stated, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Are we there yet? On a typical light holiday trading day, we see the stock market is up and precious metals are down. How convenient. Without financial freedom, we truly have no freedom whatsoever. How did we get here?

Some scams are just too good to die out. Fraudsters have been sending out fake Yellow Pages advertising bills for decades. Even in the Internet era, it still works. If you send it, they will pay. And then there's a group of foreign scammers claiming to be the IRS and they're out to lock you up. Typical fraudsters. The IRS will never call you on the phone out of the blue. They will always identify themselves and they will never threaten arrest. But these scammers don't hesitate. They are truly venal creatures from the dark.

First Trump was supposed to lose the election. Then the election was going to be tossed out by the courts. Then he was going to lose the recounts. Then his victory in would be taken away by flipping the electors.  And lastly, the real Hail Mary Pass would be Russiagate. Of course none of it came to pass and Trump has been busy pursuing his agenda, while the Establishment and the Democratic Party have been licking their wounds. Trump has been busy at work. Pretty soon we'll all see the results, for better of for worse,

The Chinese are now trying to buy up the only US Rare Earth mine. Jeff is against this action. The government needs to wise up and understand that this is a national security issue. While these metals aren't rare, currently the Chinese are the major producer. Therefore, it makes sense for the government to the initiative and help the local and US economy.

Michael Stumo is preparing to testify before Congress on the effects of Nafta (North American Free Trade Agreement) and why it must be dramatically modified or eliminated. It has done untold damage to America's factories and farms. Free trade is all well and good except when you look at how other countries subsidize their export industries. It's time for America to stand up and demand fairness. Michael's plan will create millions of jobs and prosperity at home.

Rumors are flying about the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy. After all, he's 80 years old and enough is enough. He's been the swing vote on the Court for nearly 2 decades. Time to enjoy the family and his lavish government pension. Next, will be the retirement of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Can't come soon enough. Then it will be a decidedly conservative court with a 6-3 composition. But will it matter, based upon the economy and the resulting political storm? Watch out for increased social unrest.

Matt Behdjou of AmazonSecrets joined us to discuss selling on Amazon. There's three important questions to ask before embarking on this path. 1) Does it work? 2) Is it easy? 3) Can I do it? The resounding answer to all three of these questions is Yes! The badly kept secret is that it's not just the shareholders of Amazon getting rich. There are many third party sellers using the Amazon platform and getting wealthy in the process. So before you get involved in any business undertaking, ask those three questions and act accordingly.

There's a lot of discussion about how shale oil is bringing down energy costs and increasing the supply greatly. The question is, "At what cost?" We've seen numerous bankruptcies in the energy patch and these hi-flyers are producing negative cashflow. Is this really what the future looks like? Next, Electric Vehicles or EV's are supposed to solve all our energy/pollution problems. Really? The death of the internal combustion engine is great exaggerated. It's not going to happen overnight or even in a decade, if at all. It's a process that will take a long time. Ending private ownership of vehicles could have great benefits, but don't break out your app for that self-driving Uber car just yet!

Boston University's Professor Laurence Kotlikoff is different than most of his colleagues in academia. He looks for real solutions to real problems that his fellow citizens are living through. Following his advice will help me to realize over $100,000 in lifetime income that I never knew was possible.

Not content to rest on his laurels, he's released 2 incredible financial tools that could potentially help millions. First is the divorce settlement analyzer. Feed in the numbers and change scenarios and it allows both parties to optimize the settlement and will help save on taxes as well! Next, he's created a budget/spending tool that helps you maximize your spending during your lifetime. It's a great tool that can work for almost anyone. Keep up the great work Professor!

Keith Neumeyer, Chairman of First Mining Finance and CEO/Director of First Majestic Silver is never one to sit still or rest upon his laurels. In little more than a year, the company made 8 acquisitions, has an inventory of 25 projects and 12 million ounces of gold in the ground.

Now the playing field has changed and so has Keith's strategy for the future. Beginning life as a mineral property bank, First Mining is now drilling to add further value to its projects. It's just another way that Keith is helping to unlock the company's value. He's still open to wise acquisitions and doubts the company will become a producer, but the drill program currently underway promises great returns. And that's without even considering the current market for gold, which promises the possibility of much higher prices ahead. It's a great example of risk-reward leading a company to new horizons.

Todd Tresidder has an interesting question. Why do certain postal employees and teachers with ordinary incomes achieve financial freedom, while doctors and lawyers earning multiple times more income end up in bankruptcy?

The reason is more complex than most financial gurus teach.

The truth is there's no magic wealth system or program that produces reliable results despite the over-hyped claims of marketers.

Instead, the wealth building process is mundane and practical - like a series of hurdles you must jump over, without tripping up - no different than building your own business or achieving any other serious economic goal.

The hurdles are:

  • Commitment so that you prioritize everything necessary to build wealth; otherwise, life will just get in the way.
  • Plan based on proven principles that actually work, and it must be uniquely designed to fit your skills, resources, and interests.
  • Action because nothing happens without persistent, disciplined action over sufficient time to reach the end goal.

I know that doesn't sound nearly as sexy as the "hidden secrets of the rich" sold by marketer types, but it is timeless wisdom that actually works.

People want to believe in get-rich-quick and overpriced weekend bootcamps because they promise to deliver that "secret missing ingredient" that previously held you back.

The secret is there are no secrets.
