Danielle joined us after a much deserved rest. She's rightly skeptical of the latest of manifestation of stock market mania, Trumphoria. While the US indexes are at or near record levels, the rest of the world is having trouble keeping up. Eventually there will be a day of reckoning, but when? Perhaps when ethics return, not just to corporations and government, but to society at large. But then maybe we're hoping for too much too fast.

Bix Weir joined us today. He believes that the jury is still out on Donald Trump. We won't know until Trump takes over and we see what he does with the Exchange Stabilization Fund. Will he turn his back on it or embrace it? It's difficult to tell from Trump's appointments exactly what his intentions are. Some of his people are definitely outside the mainstream, while others are less so. However, government by Tweet has definitely been shaking things up. And Bitcoin has been shaking up the monetary system too. Briefly breaking $1000 it's taking a breather now at $900, getting ready for the next leg up.

Daniel Greenfield is sick of the corruption and evil of the United Nations. It accomplishes little and wastes much. It has become the exclusive province of dictators and human rights violators. It's time to reclaim this valuable land on Manhattan's East River and turn it into high value condominiums. It will also free up large amounts of parking. The experiment in world governance has been a complete failure.

Our friend from across the Pond, Alasdair McCleod joined us today. He believes that Trump's success will bring higher interest rates and higher commodity prices. More inflation and perhaps a driving out of investment from markets to the real economy. But can the economy take it higher real rates? What happens if they hit 5 percent? Will it crash the banks and the markets? We might very well find out soon.

With all the good economic news, why worry? Everything is growing, good inflation is back and Keynsian Economics is working, right? But all is not well. Debt has been escalating at an unsustainable rate. The net result has been an expanding economy, but at what price? It can't continue on this way. We're simply stealing tomorrow's growth and reporting it today. Sounds like a real recipe for long term success.

2016 was the best of all possible worlds for virtually every market, except two, Uranium and the Euro. Every other market was up, most substantially. Bitcoin, the big winner was up 122%! NatGas was up a whopping 72%! Stock markets around the globe were all up with the TSX.V up 46% and the Russell 2000 up 19.5%. Precious metals had their best performance in years. How can 2017 be any better? Will the DOW break 20,000? Let's wait and see.

Questions of a Trump Troop

Available Interviews with Retired US Army Serviceman of 22 Years and
Recipient of Seven Valor Awards in Combat
Colonel Denny Gillem

President-elect Donald Trump believes the Obama administration has weakened the American military. He campaigned on a promise of greater security, particularly against terrorism. In his campaign, Trump called for 90,000 more Army soldiers, a 350-ship Navy, 100 more fighters, and strengthened nuclear and missile defenses.

* Is this a realistic view or plan?
* What is the future outlook of our military under Trump?
* Did Obama truly weaken us or is that an over statement?

Do we really need transgender troops and female infantry fighters? Are they a plus or a major liability? The colonel thinks they hurt our fighting ability and he's probably correct. We need a major military rebuilding done now!

While Obama has spent the past 8 years putting America down, Vernuccio believes that Donald Trump is on the right path to Making America Great again. From repealing Obama's overarching executive orders on day one, reneging on his abusive gentlemen's agreements overseas, to abolishing Obama's and many other president's abusive regulation, Frank sees Trump as on a mission. Will he succeed where others have failed?

This was my second trip to Cuba in a year. This time I brought along an ace interpreter, my son Brandon. What a difference a year makes. The country is truly a mess. Much of its once glorious architecture is in a pronounced state of decay. Ill maintained buildings routinely collapse, leaving large gaps around the city. But there seems to be much construction activity and the blighted streets of Old Havana have been repaved. Much to talk about.

Next my friend and sponsor Jason Hartman has much reason to be optimistic about the incoming Trump Administration. One of the major obstacles to increased real estate investment has been the much derided Dodd-Frank Act. It has placed numerous barriers in this market that the new Trump Team seems hell bent on reducing or eliminating. Right now, Jason is the only one talking about it, but as usual, he's the visionary. Get ready for a fresh wave of investment. 

And as always much, much more.

Kamal's new book, Rebirth (published by Hachette, coming out January 3rd), is the creative byproduct of his entrepreneurship journey and life lessons. His previous works have some incredibly touching reviews on Amazon, including many discussing how the book saved or changed their lives. His journey from virtual pennilessness to running a venture capital fund, takes him on a journey to his ancestral home to scatter his recently departed father's ashes in the Ganges River. But it turns out to be much more profound, as he slowly realizes his life's purpose and his reason for being.

Trevor says that freedom of expression today is like one of those exotic animals that everybody says they love, but that still appear to be heading inexorably towards extinction. Everywhere from the internet to the universities, from football to the theatrical stage, from out on the streets to inside our own minds, we are allowing the hard-won right to freedom of expression to be reined in and undermined.

There is an urgent need now to stand up for free speech as an indivisible right. The danger today is not just that we lose the free-speech wars, but that we risk surrendering our most precious liberty without a fight. Why has this right been slowly dying off?

Ivan Eland says the threat from China's lone aircraft carrier has been overstated. The world's media is touting the "coming out" party for China's aircraft carrier, the Liaoning. The carrier and its's entourage of escorting destroyers and frigates made a splash when they left the first island chain behind and sallied forth into the open Pacific Ocean past Taiwan and Okinawa. The ship and its battle group are symbolically headed to the South China Sea, where China has territorial disputes with several nations. But it takes years and years to develop the expertise necessary to wage carrier based war and China certainly doesn't have it yet. Perhaps Trump's idea of a closer relationship with Russia isn't so off the wall.

Imagine a world where everything President-Elect Donald Trump touches turns to gold. It's beginning to look a lot like that as far as the US Economy is concerned. How can this be? The economy and stock market were supposed to crash. Just like Brexit, the election of Trump appears to be leading to a new paradigm and a pro-longed period of prosperity. Jordan is excited and perhaps we all should be too. There are real reasons for optimism, but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. Inflation will almost certainly pickup. Perhaps real wages will finally start to rise as well. Energy prices will go down and living standards will go up and pretty soon we'll be living in the best of all possible worlds. We can only hope!

During the election, Dr. Ted Noel went from being an obscure Florida retired anesthesiologist to becoming a star citizen journalist, in just a few short months. His probing analytic youTube videos into Hillary Clinton's deteriorating health quickly went viral and were seen by millions. It got to the point that the Clinton Campaign altered her tv appearances to shield her health issues from Dr. Noel's probing eye and the television cameras.

As a retired doctor, he had little to lose, but his impact was huge. He searing analysis brought out the facts about Hillary's potential Parkinson's Disease and potentially cost her big at the polls. How big we'll never know, but it almost certainly had an electoral impact and for that we're extremely grateful to him and his tireless quest for the truth.

Like it or not, Trump is going to be our president. Professor Sanders believes that the electoral college is somewhat outdated. He seems to think that the divisions that create our system are somewhat artificial. But isn't this exactly what the Founders had in mind? While the good Professor believes that people vote for the government, the plan was to avoid allowing any geographical region to dominate the vote. And much to the chagrin of California, New York and Illinois, this is exactly what happened. 

So how will Trump govern, through executive order or fiat, like his predecessors have increasingly relied upon, or in parternship with the Congress as the Founders intended? We'll know soon enough. Perhaps it's time for the legislative branch to step up to the plate and stop shirking its duties. Do we really get the government and policies we desire as a nation and a people? The Professor believes that we usually do, but we wonder if that's always the case.

If you haven't figured it out already, the government is not going to save you and that safety net has a lot of holes in it. The middle class needs a safety net, but they're going to have to do more on their own to insure that it exists. They need to make better choices and plan better for their retirements. Also, they need to make better career decisions and perhaps deal more intelligently with their income choices. If they don't start soon it will be too late.

The year is almost over but there's still things you can do to save on your taxes now. If you have losses, and you're the right age it can pay to take them now and reduce your social security income subject to taxes. That's just one thing that can save you real money on this year's taxes. Andrew's got some other great ideas that can help you save big time. It's almost but not quite too late.

Gordon T. Long joined us for an interesting discussion about where we're heading next as a nation.

Chris Martenson believes that the mainstream legacy media is finished after their abysmal performance in the 2016 elections. It's gotten to the point that you can't believe anything they tell you. Fortunately you now have the ability to fact check the media every step of the way, if you choose to do so. It's easy and it's very necessary. Sometimes it's very difficult to cut through the lies, but it can be done. Turn off your TV! Then only read your news. You'll find you're much less emotional and more clear-headed about things. Try it for a month and see what happens.
