Just as expected, the holiday is over and as predicted the expected precious metals raid came right on schedule. But nothing much happened. Precious metals raids just aren't what they used to be, like so many things today.

As incomes stagnate and prices rise, a growing number of Americans face a tough choice: either descend a couple of rungs on the lifestyle ladder or borrow to keep it together. Many are apparently choosing door number two.  "Americans are getting into debt to afford food, gas.Nowhere has the unequal nature of the post-banking-crisis recovery raised more concerns for the long-term sustainability of the U.S. economy than in the clear rise of non-discretionary consumer credit. While the “haves” have fully returned to their pre-crisis behavior of paying for everything from higher education, cars and luxury homes with cash, and fully leveraging their investment portfolios, the rest of the consumer sector has changed dramatically over the past six years."

David Morgan of The Morgan Report believes that if a precious metals raid is coming, it will come on the Monday after the July 4th holiday weekend. So far today, he's looking pretty right. He thinks that we've seen the bottom in the metals markets and that the trend is up from here. The mining stocks will find their way again. The key is to diversify into a number of them. That way if one or two fail, you'll still be positioned to realize tremendous profits. After all, since the Crash of 2008 nothing has been fixed. We're on our way to something potentially worse. So get ready now.

Dr. David Janda gives us the real scoop on Obamacare and it's not very encouraging. Much of the agenda was actually buried in the infamous Stimulus Bill. What we're finding out about now, Dave actually warned us about years ago. Now the chickens are coming home to roost. We talk about other things that are happening around the country and the globe. Be prepared!

Meet Cyrus G. a 21 year old gold skeptic. He believes that the stock market, while high, is fairly priced and going higher. We don't disagree. Our only contention is that the world is a very complex and dangerous place and that government often gets it wrong. The Federal Reserve and its brillian central bankers always get it wrong, blowing bubbles through loose monetary policy, only to see things blow and people get hurt as a result. Witness 1929 and 2008-9 and countless recessions in between. Cyrus believes that gold and silver will decline within the next three years and who knows, he maybe right. But if he's wrong and there's a black swan event, would you rather be holding soon to be worthless stocks or 10-15 percent of your net worth in precious metals? We'll leave the decision to you.

Holiday weeks were notorious for precious metals raids. Doesn't look like it's going to happen this week, wonder why? Are Da Boyz back in town? Something is definitely different. We've got Mark Skousen on today--Freedomfest is next week. Listen to Dr. Jeff Tanenbaum, surgeon turned realtor about restoring the American Dream. Then there's Kyle Olson talking about how one school district in a valiant effort to comply with Lady Obama's school lunch guidelines has banned birthday cupcakes. Finally, we spoke with doubting Cyrus. He's a young 21 year old who just can't see the value of gold. We were patient and tried to explain the historic basis for this most barbarous of relics. You be the judge if we got through at all.

Kyle Olson of the Education Action Group discusses how a school district in Washington State has banned cupcakes from routine birthday celebrations. After all, they contain sugar and that causes obesity, right? Another district in Rhode Island is taking their left over Michelle mandated lunches and selling them to pig farmers. Can't let that food go to waste. Can you think of a creative use for left over healthy lunches that kids hate to eat? We can think of a few, but we can't publish them here.

It's that time of the year again--Freedomfest. The largest gathering of freedom minded people in the free world. It happens every year around this time in Las Vegas. Yes it's 120 degrees in the desert, but it's well worth the trip. The list of well known Libertarians who attend makes it all worthwhile. We make it a point to attend yearly.

Dr. Jeff Tanenbaum left a successful medical practice to go into real estate. He repeated his prior success and today is the toprealtor at the famed Halstead Group. He believes that while the Millennial Generation faces unprecedented challenges to becoming homeowners, there is still hope for them. The key is financial education. While the government could do much to make it easier, until they do, Millennials must learn everything they can and start changing their behavior to make their home ownership dreams a reality.

Jeffrey Tucker, publisher of Laissez Faire books and founder of Liberty.me is extremely bullish on Bitcoin. He sees the recent problems with the exchanges as learning experiences and believes that demand is taking off for the crypto-currency. With increasing instability and more doubts about the viablity of national currencies, he sees more people turning to the crypto-currencies. There's also the issue of security and reduced transaction fees. He believes that diversifying your holdings will protect you against future Mt. Gox melt downs.

Harvey Organ has been following the gold and silver for many years. Guess what, it's all going to China and Russia. But there's a problem, the West is running out. Harvey thinks that the Federal Reserve has been surreptiously shipping out all the gold that they store, even though it's not theirs to ship. If so, one day soon it's all going to hit the fan. And that day will be soon. 

And now Agrentina is getting ready to default. The vultures are circling. That could lead to billions in losses for the major banks due to credit default swaps. Will a deal be cut before that happens? Harvey thinks it will, but they've got just 30 days to get it done. But many other countries are running dangerously low of cash as well. Who will be next?

John writes that the US took its next-to-last stab at calculating First Quarter GDP, and the downward revision was impressive even by recent standards. It now appears that the economy, well, here’s how Bloomberg puts it: "The U.S. economy contracted in the first quarter by the most since the depths of the last recession as consumer spending cooled."


Gross domestic product fell at a 2.9 percent annualized rate, more than forecast and the worst reading since the same three months in 2009, after a previously reported 1 percent drop, the Commerce Department said today in Washington. It marked the biggest downward revision from the agency’s second GDP estimate since records began in 1976. The revision reflected a slowdown in health care spending.

Gold and silver are going up on the last day of the month. What a switch from normal slam downs that used to take place on the last trading day of the month. Something different is definitely taking place. 

I was in New York City for my sister's wedding this weekend. Apart from the fact that I visit regularly to see my kids, I would prefer to stay away as much as possible. The first signs of deterioration are setting in. LaGuardia Airport is again becoming a homeless shelter. They're taking over the food court and a number of waiting rooms throughout the facility. Mayor Giuliani stopped this practice over a decade ago and Nanny Bloomberg started rolling it back. Now Comrade DeBlasio is intent on making New York's public terminals fullscale shelters and I'm sure he's proud of the effort.

Some believe that the deteriorating situation in could be the Black Swan that throws the oils markets into complete chaos. Not so TheStreet.com's Joe Deaux. He thinks it's still to early to tell. So far oil prices are high but they haven't gone parabolic. It looks like oil is still flowing from Iraq and that's a good thing. Will it continue, no one knows for sure. The situation is fluid and could change at any moment.

New York State's highest court has struck the final nail in the coffin of Nanny Bloomberg's dreaded double gulp soda ban. But it's not really a victory for personal liberty. The fact that such trivial personal rights must now be litigated all the way to the highest courts shows just how little credence our rights are afforded by the political system. And the decision wasn't unanimous, two judges on the saw nothing wrong with such nannyism, after all obesity is an epidemic. In other news, gold and silver are holding on to their gains, even though it's Friday. What a nice change.

Gold and silver prices are climbing higher following the downward revision of Q1 GDP to -2.9%. Not too long ago, Q1 GDP was expected to rise by 2.6%. However, it has instead contracted by -2.9%, far below the -1.8% expected and well below the -1.0% second revision. In fact, this is the worst print for GDP since the depths of the financial crisis in Q1 of 2009! Gold stocks may very well be the place to be in 2014, 2015 and beyond. Jason's got some great ideas on where to be investing.

A week to the day when gold and silver broke out and the cartel has been throwing everything they can against them and something amazing has been happening. They're holding tight over 1300 and 21 respectively! How can this be? My question is why aren't they going higher? With everything that's going on in the world, how many safe haven investments are left? You still might see some weakness in July but things are going to start really going wild in the fall.

Ellen Brown wrote recently that central banks hae the power to create national currencies with accounting entries, and they are traditionally very secretive. We are not allowed to peer into their books. It took a major lawsuit by Reuters and a congressional investigation to get the Fed to reveal the $16-plus trillion in loans it made to bail out giant banks and corporations after 2008. What is to stop a foreign bank from simply printing its own currency and trading it on the currency market for dollars, to be invested in the US stock market or US real estate market? What is to stop central banks from printing up money competitively, in a mad rush to own the world's largest companies? Evidently not much. China's central bank has been buying up stock both here and Europe with reckless abandon, wonder what their plan is.

We also discussed Ellen's recent run for California Treasurer and her ideas for a California public bank.
