Jeff Berwick has been on the Bitcoin/Crypto-Currency band wagon since 2011. So he's been right on the money, literally. With Bitcoin hitting $3k and Ethereum taking off to the Ether, how much further can it go. Of course pullbacks after such increases would only be normal. They're volatile so make sure you buckle your seatbelt before you buy. But Jeff says we're just at the beginning of this movement and it has the potential to eliminate central banking as we know it. Let it be true!

Gerald Celente was very negative about the future until Trump was elected. As an outsider Trump is trying to drain the swamp but he's been fought every step of the way. At the same time he's becoming more militaristic which isn't a positive sign. War with North Korea, Iran, is it just a matter of time. Things still aren't great but Gerald sees a silver lining in the retail apocalypse taking place. Customers will shift their purchases back to Main Street or local businesses. Better quality and better service. Say goodbye to the big box. Old towns and cities are seeing a renaissance. Much more here, so listen on.

According to Craig Hemke a/k/a Turd Ferguson, there's a financial virus (herpes) spreading through the markets. The Fed will be increasing rates later this week, at least there's a 96% chance and yet longer term rates are sinking and get this, long term Italian bonds are yielding less than Treasuries! How did this happen and what can be done about? Well you only need to look back at all the Fed's temporary interventions to find the answer. And until the markets start functioning properly again (will they ever) keep your eye on the USD/JPY rates. So goes the Yen, so goes gold, at least for the past 5 years anyway.

Nasdaq has been hitting the skids for the past two sessions. No wonder, it's been hitting unsustainable levels, largely due to just 5-6 stocks. It has become unstable and therefore ready for a plunge. There's so many pockets of extreme leverage that can't have a happy ending. This time might be different, but in a really bad way. Debt is a direct threat to the market and the economy.

Breaking Down the Fiduciary Rule

The Department of Labor’s definition of a fiduciary demands that advisors act in the best interests of their clients, and to put their clients' interests above their own. It leaves no room for advisors to conceal any potential conflict of interest, and states that all fees and commissions must be clearly disclosed in dollar form to clients. The definition has been expanded to include any professional making a recommendation or solicitation — and not simply giving ongoing advice. Previously, only advisors who were charging a fee for service (either hourly or as a percentage of account holdings) on retirement plans were considered fiduciaries.

Fiduciary is a much higher level of accountability than the suitability standard previously required of financial salespersons, such as brokers, planners and insurance agents, who work with retirement plans and accounts. "Suitability" meant that as long as an investment recommendation met a client's defined need and objective, it was deemed appropriate. Now, financial professionals are legally obligated to put their client’s best interests first rather than simply finding “suitable” investments. The new rule could therefore eliminate many commission structures that govern the industry.

Advisors who wish to continue working on commission will need to provide clients with a disclosure agreement, called a Best Interest Contract Exemption (BICE), in circumstances where a conflict of interest could exist (such as, the advisor receiving a higher commission or special bonus for selling a certain product). This is to guarantee that the advisor is working unconditionally in the best interest of the client. All compensation that is paid to the fiduciary must be clearly spelled out as well.

Before getting involved with Amazon and online marketing, Mike was a dedicated real estate investor. He made a fortune purchasing foreclosures at auction, flipping them and then repeating the process. Finally, he accumulated a portfolio of rental properties. The problem with rental properties, management issues aside, is that the returns while respectable aren't stellar. That's why he jumped at the Amazon opportunities. His returns are multiples higher than what he achieved in very successful real estate investing. And that's why he's teaching you how to do it too. There's plenty of opportunity for everyone.

Many of you have asked about FBA -  fulfillment by Amazon. Amazon has effectively opened up their retail platform to third party sellers. You as a seller send your product directly to Amazon's fulfillment centers. You prepare the product listing on Amazon's site and they do all the rest. You don't need a warehouse, customer service staff, return processing or any of the other departments a non-FBA seller would require. This allows you to concentrate on finding the right products and effectively marketing them. You get all the benefits of having your own online business with none of the burdens. That's what makes it so great and potentially very profitable.

Bitcoin is nearly $3000! That's the good news. The bad news is that the Bitcoin chart is looking parabolic. Unless the end of the global financial system is arriving shortly, this can only mean that the price is being manipulated up, by the powers that be, to facilitate a major crash, thus undermining the confidence in crypto-currencies. To be decided shortly, mark my words. 

In other news, President Trump will not be impeached, yet anyway. The Comey affair is a bunch of nothing wrapped up in yesterday's New York Times. Think about it, why would Trump fire Comey when he was out of the office 3000 miles from DC? Answer, to allow his AG to take control of Comey's office and retrieve all the damaging files on all the DC Insiders. This is the FBI's heads traditional role since J. Edgar Hoover. And it worked like a charm. You don't hear many dems crying to impeachment now, because Trump now knows where the bodies are buried. 

Finally, NYC keeps declining more and more. They're celebrating a terrorist for the annual Puerto Rican Day Parade. Nothing surprising here.

Gun control advocates frequently advise against people using guns for self-defense. But Michael Bloomberg, Rosie O’Donnell, and various anti-gun politicians are all protected by guns.

 

In May, associate history professor Jacob Dorman resigned from the University of Kansas. He accepted another tenured position at a different public university in a non-campus-carry state. In his resignation letter, Dorman predicted that Kansas will be “driving off faculty members” when it enacts campus carry on July 1. The professors expressed concern that a permit holder might get angry over a grade and start shooting. Has this ever happened? Would recruitment and attendance suffer?

 

Twelve states mandate the right to permitted concealed carry on public college campuses, and an additional 22 states leave it up to the university. Were there any reports of disturbances?

Innovator of Technology and IT Expert Nick Paras joined us today to discuss Home Security Breaches. This is an emerging trend in IT Security and one that every American needs to prepare against. 

It is a known fact that billions of devices will be connected to the internet by the year 2020. With all this technology comes the idea of consumers exposing themselves to an increased risk of falling victim to criminal activity such as being hacked.

Possibly one of the biggest risks for consumers lies in home automation systems that control every aspect of the home from the temperature and lighting to the home security system. With access to one’s security system, hackers can gain entry into a house, get a look inside and steal valuable items without the alarm systems reacting.

So you need to start re-thinking just how connected your home really has to be.

Bitcoin going parabolic, can it end well. The future of crypto-currencies is no doubt bright, but what is the underpinning of this run up in value? What makes it worth $2700? Ludicrous policies lead to ludicrous valuations and that's the result of easy money policies engaged in by the world's central banks. What's lost in the shuffle is that no one is looking at the real risks inherent in the markets and the products they're selling. When the current investors want to sell who will be there to buy?Demographically those who hold the assets will want to sell to fund living expenses. The people who got creamed last time will come in at the top  again. In other words,  rinse repeat.

Ace investigative reporter Dorothy Kilgallen was hot on the trail of the JFK Assassination. She had interviewed Jack Ruby twice and was in fear for her life. Then she died mysteriously and it was ruled a suicide. But writer Mark Shaw keeps turning up more and more evidence that it was actually a badly concealed homicide. Now, due to his efforts, the Manhattan DA's office has reopened the investigation. Where's it heading? Mark tells us the latest developments in the case.

California is in a world of financial pain. The debt is growing exponentially, producers are fleeing the state and the administration of Governor Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown isn't just powerless to stop it, it's adding gasoline to the fire. It's to the point where even our good friend Joe Messina is thinking about planning his escape. Well perhaps one day they'll learn, however it won't happen soon, unless there's a crash or shall we say when. They're surely not listening to Joe. So until that day, California will continue to circle the drain.

Terrorist attacks have become a regular occurrence in England. What can be done about it? Seems like there's always a reason why they didn't stop the guys from carrying out the attack, even though they were well aware of them before the deed was done. Will vacating the Middle East and leaving them to their own demise solve the problem? John believes it couldn't make it worse. 

Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord is irrelevant. Cheap solar will eventually make the matter moot, if it's not already. There won't be much CO2 when everyone is driving an electric self-driving vehicle and generating their energy from the sun.

How do you take your business from $100,000 to $1,000,000? It's called Scaling up your business and it's a process. First you've got to successfully market a product on Amazon. Set a goal of $10k per month. Once you've achieved that goal then it's time to start adding more products. Add another 2 products, then 5 and make your way to 10 products. If they're good products with excellent trend potential, you'll hit your goals. But don't forget that you're going to have rank on the search engines. And there's a lot of other things you'll have to do. Once you have 10 products selling, you're going to need put systems in place for running your business, but that's another lesson for another day.

There's a shortage of inventory for both investors seeking opportunities and for those looking to buy a home. But Jason still likes things better in the good old USofA than in Europe. He says that Europe is "the continent of lack." We need to appreciate what we have here much more. Small homes, small cars, dirty people and super high unemployment. The continent has committed or is in the process of committing suicide. Time to stop dumping on Trump. In the past every politician has sold out the US. But Trump seems committed not to. Trump is the opponent of the Globalists and the Europhiles.

The Fed is clearly in a box. Will they raise rates in June and start reducing their balance sheet? Don't know yet, but none of it is good news for the stock market. Gold looks poised to move, is it's time to shine coming up shortly? And then there's the ag commodities. Ned says they're in a bull market, led by animal proteins. India has killed the trade in Water Buffalo which accounts for 20 percent of the world's beef. Prices are almost certain to increase fast and furiously once the effects are felt. Who will pick up the slack?

Tarl Warwick's YouTube Channel (styxhexenhammer666) has the mainstream fake news media running scared. With over 130,000 subscribers and millions of views, he's become the go to place for searing, pointed and unbiased commentary. He tells it like it is in a very engaging, down to earth manner. There's no sugar coating and four letter adjectives and adverbs are the norm. His delivery is authentic and he has no dog in any race. We talked about the liberal and media meltdowns, 2018 and how it will be an unmitigated disaster for the democrats and perhaps the establishment as well. Things have changed and continue to evolve. That's why YouTube has become an invaluable part of the battle against the mainstream media, even though its parent Google certainly opposes people like Tarl and has gone out of their way to make create obstacles to success of truth-tellers.

The retirement crisis doesn't have to be a crisis. Just follow Captain Capitalism's advice and you'll never run out of money. First, never fully retire! Keep your income streams flowing. Even if you only work 2-3 days per week, your life will be much better as a result. Retirement is always a dead end. Next, start creating additional income streams earlier in life. That way you'll be able have them flowing steady as you get older. Whether it's a side hustle, an Internet business or a consulting gig, start early and often. Finally, downsize before retirement. You might not be able to control your income, but you do have more control over you expenditures. How much do you really need and what can you spend less on? It's all up to you.
