Bill Holter of Miles Franklin joined us today. Seems there's a cognitive dissonance problem with the American Public. They know there's something very wrong with the economic engine of the United States, but they're too scared to look under the hood to see the rubber band propulsion system that's being driven by a hamster that's about to die. But like it or not, they're going to find out very soon.

Kris Miller was back on the show talking about some extremely safe investments that are throwing off amazing returns. No wonder she's known as the Money Maestro. She's chock full of cutting edge investment ideas that you just won't find elsewhere. Since she's not a stockbroker or sales type person, you can take it or leave, but at least listen to what she's saying. She's as worried about the dollar as you and I. But for now, we all need income.

As expected, the US revised the most recent quarter’s GDP from barely positive to sharply negative today. But once again the true extent of the problem was hidden by some statistical sleight of hand, in this case wildly-optimistic inflation assumption Here’s an excerpt from the Consumer Metrics Institute’s just-published analysis:May 29, 2014 – BEA Revises 1st Quarter 2014 GDP Sharply Downward to Outright Contraction at Nearly a 1% Annual Rate: In their second estimate of the US GDP for the first quarter of 2014, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) reported that the economy was contracting at a -0.99% annualized rate. When compared to prior quarters, the new measurement is down over 3.6% from the 2.64% growth rate reported for the 4th quarter of 2013, and it is now more than 5% lower than the 4.19% reported for the 3rd quarter of 2013.

Seth Peretzman has been selling precious metals for a while. He sees the current price action as the classic set-up. Metals get slammed going into the summer making for their cycle lows and then setting for the rally that we all know is coming. Perhaps we'll break $1200 for gold, but it appears that we're very close to the bottom in silver. Some may accuse us of being cheerleaders for the metals, but nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, we're just observers of human nature and we've seen this play over and over again throughout history. Unfortunately, history is no longer taught in American schools, so the vast majority of Americans won't know what happened until it's too late.

Jeb Handwerger of is a diehard precious metals and junior mining stock bull, to say the least. But he's also been bullish on palladium and nickel this year, which his subscribers have done quite well by. He hasn't backed off of his bullishness for the precious metals, because the fundamental case for them has only gotten stronger. And the way Jeb sees it, they're now on sale, big time!

Dave Bego believes that unions in the United States have cost us all dearly. They're secretly funding the campaigns to increase the minimum wage and to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. They amass vast fortunes and really don't care about their members. Rather, they're all about furthering the collectivist agenda. Fortunately, they've lost major battles in Michigan and Indiana, with other battles on the way. Dave knows because he's on the front lines.

David Gurwitz of Charles Nenner Research joined us to update last week's bad audio recording. Yes, right on schedule, we're seeing the projected lows in gold and silver kick in. You can speculate as to why. David sees 1150-1160 as the potential bottom, sometime in July. After that it could be happy days are here again. At least David seems to think so. And the cycles are looking good for Apple too, $750!

John Rubino writes, "Ah, the Italians. They’re good for at least one entry in the 'Why We’re Ungovernable' series each year, and their latest is the best yet: Italy has announced it will start including estimated revenues from prostitution and illegal drug sales in official gross domestic product (GDP) figures.The country’s National Institute of Statistics says starting next year, the GDP result will also include estimates on the value of the black market in cigarettes and alcohol. The move has been driven by new European Union rules requiring nations to include all activities that produce income in their national accounts, regardless of their legality."

We also discuss what happened with the UK and EU elections. They represent a tectonic shift that's coming to America soon. Forget austerity, more money printing and Quantitative Easing and pass the credit card please. We just don't want to feel the pain.

Noted CPA, Attorney and Author Sandy Botkin knows a lot about debt and why people often wind up sinking in a sea of it. He's written a book about how people can avoid it or get out of it and he's shared with us the big reasons why so many have succumbed to it. The causes are simple, but exercising the discipline to say no is hard. Sandy shows you how.

Comments[0]'s Ross Kenneth Urkin says that too many graduates get out of college without a plan on what to do about their debt. Then they either go into denial or into panic. Either way, they're not effectively dealing with the situation and things will only get worse. The key is to effectively assess the problem and then act. It may take years but eventually a good plan will succeed.

Joe Deaux and I discussed the upcoming summer's gas prices promise to be higher than ever. Short of buying a hybrid or packing light and getting rid of the wife and kids, there's not much you can do about it. Just drive less and take the bus. Tune up the car and as the President suggested, keep your tires well inflated.

When it comes to precious metals, few people have the knowledge and experience of David Morgan. We anxiously await the regular release of the Morgan Report. With the cost of production way above the current market price, how much longer can the producers hold out before they either have to shut their mines or go into hibernation? At some point the market must assert itself through the price mechanism. No one knows when that will happen, only that it must.

Peter Grandich joined us for a review of what's going on in the financial and precious metals markets. Comex expiry is upon us and it's time for another raid, so what else is new? Barclays gets caught and fined for fixing gold prices and there's no response from anyone. I guess that's life in the New Economy. Until one day when everything changes. And you had better be ready when that day arrives or else.

Danielle Park our resident financial expert and advisor to the wealthy joined us to explain why interest rates are going down around the world. GDP in the US and elsewhere is also going down, which explains alot. Sometimes just staying even means you're staying ahead. You know the old saying about return of investment as opposed to return on investment

Turd Ferguson joins us today for an analysis of recent world events. From the announced disbanding of the London Silver Fix to the unfettered Fed money printing, to China's insatiable appetite for gold, to China's confrontations with Japan and Vietnam and other countries, the New World Order is taking shape and America is conspicuous by it's absence. And so is the dollar. What will a declining world power do to prolong it's power? That remains to be seen.

Interesting interview of yours truly on a Montreal radio station. If you thought that Canadians are just like Americans only with long underwear, well think again. Too many of them are just plain socialists who believe that the government can do no wrong and can never print too much money. Listen to the caller who just can't believe that the original World Trade Center was a White Elephant. Well I was there and experienced it first hand. So who are you going to believe, a lefty from north of the border or a New Yorker who lived through it?

David Gurwitz of Charles Nenner Research says the cycles never lie. He sees stock markets topping around the world and gold and silver putting in their bottoms before beginning their inexorable rises. Oil is going up with an intermediate target of $122 per barrel. Natural Gas is another story. The war cycle is picking up steam. Every 100 hundred years there's a big one, just go back in history. Cycles seem to control everything, so the next time someone's carrying on about free will, just point to the stars.

After 100 years, nearly the same age as the Fed, the daily Silver Fix will be no more after August 14, 2014. How much longer will the daily Gold Fix be around? Clearly the dominos are falling. As Bix likes to say, "Don't ask when it's going to happen, instead look around and ask when it's going to end."
