Grant Williams says we're reaching the acceleration phase of the crisis and that the central banks are running out of ammunition. Are we approaching a Minsky Moment? What we've seen since 2008 is that central banks have corrupted the natural order of events and reflated the world's stock markets. Unfortunately, this will make it all the more painful when reversion to the mean occurs. This time really isn't different, so get ready because the business cycle hasn't been repealed.

Joe Messina of TheRealSide.com joined us today. Seems like everytime you turn around there's a scandal revolving around the Clintons. This time it seems that Hillary Clinton wanted to control her email server so that she could pick and choose what got archived, in direct contravention of the law. The result is that none of her email from her tenure as Secretary of State has been archived by the Library of Congress. Will it cost her the candidacy? It's definitely costing her on Saturday Night Live. We also talked about UC Irvine's effort to ban the American Flag and lots more.

With collapse the Austrian Bank Heta and the decision of the ECB and the Austrian Government to let the bail-in to let it take its course, one would think instability would be rising, but au contraire, all is well. But how long can it continue on for, that's the real question and of course no one knows the answer to it.

Daniel Greenfield writes for the Sultan Knish Blog and his work is found on Front Magazine and other conservative venues around the web. He's a scathing critic of the current administration as well as previous occupants of the White House. He's hoping that the current crop of Republican wannabes will start shaping up and thinning out. He believes that Hillary Clinton will be forgiven for her current scandal(s) as there's really no one else to take her place. The Republicans need to learn how to start fighting and controlling their message in the media. Use of humor, anger and other tools is a must. Is Scott Walker the one, that remains to be seen.

It's all legal and you paid for them. Why leave anything on the table? You're going to get short-changed anyway, so get all you can, you paid in a fortune!

For Dr. Elena George the patient always comes first and that's why she's opted out of Obamacare. Obamacare is quick to condemn patients to hospice end of life care instead of making the effort to treat their difficulties. Dr. George refuses to abide by this treatment. Instead she encourages patients to become self-pay or to join organizations such as Liberty Share. That way patient too can opt out of Obamacare and get the care and attention they deserve and require.

Yesterday the Euro hit 110 and the Grexit looks to be getting closer and closer. Precious metals production is hitting new lows. Currencies around the world are collapsing. ECB QE is starting next week, but there's hope because the new Apple iWatch is coming soon. However, they'll be consuming 30 percent of the world's gold production. Perhaps they can produce them in silver, platinum and palladium and thereby singlehandedly rescue the precious metals markets.

Eric Hadik previously forecast that the Euro would hit 110 during the year. Little did he expect it would happen so quickly. He's still thinking that 2016 will be the year when gold starts taking off. The stock market is getting close to its peak and he doesn't see much more mileage left there. Instability ahead as the Russian Bear flexes its muscles. Be prepared for what's ahead. Greek instability is also a further indication of what's ahead.

Wayne Allyn Root joined us today for a review of the Netanyahu address to Congress. It wasn't pretty. Unlike the Republicans, Netanyahu knows how to fight. The Republicans complete their complete capitulation to Obama and the Media. They are truly clueless and hopeless.

February 2015 continued the trend of increasing volatility across most major markets. Stock markets started going up again after a brief one month hiatus on the downside. Metals were down, oil rallied, Natgas notched up slightly, Uranium was up, so were interest rates on the 10 year. Bitcoin was up finally. The Dollar was up as well. Dr. Copper seems to have found a low at $2.50. Markets have gotten a whole lot interesting lately.

Jim Comiskey has been fighting it out in the Chicago pits for 30 plus years. He's the first to admit that the markets are rigged. But that shouldn't stop you from accumulated metals and profitting anyway. You've heard him on Craig Hemke/Turd Ferguson's show for years. He brings his sage wisdom to the current market situation and says be patient, it will pay off.

Heta bank in Austria has perhaps reached the end of the road. The bank, which was bailed out by the Austrian Government in 2008 and is now in need of another bailout but none will be forthcoming. Rather, bondholders and creditors will be paying for the bailout and this will have the effect of triggering the CDS's (Credit Default Swaps). Will this lead to a series of cascading collapses among banks across the world? That's the fear among many alternative economists across the globe and only time will tell.

Heather Wagenhals joined us today to discuss the recent bank hack/heist and the ingenious way it was executed. Never underestimate the intelligence of criminals. They spend all their time looking for weaknesses and opportunities to illegally profit. Therefore, it's very important that you're extremely wary when dealing with any emails, links, attachments or anything you're not sure of on the Internet. Also, don't store your passwords, and regularly dispose of your cookies and caches from your browser. Otherwise, you could find yourself looted as well.

Jason Stevens believes that the current low prices we're seeing won't last. He believes that oil will go back up to the $65-70 range within a matter of months and should stay there for quite a while, once the storage situation is worked off. Just low enough to keep out the marginal shale producers. As far as diamonds are concerned, prices are going up and mines are closing. Very few new mines are coming on stream. It takes many years to bring a new diamond mine into production. Therefore, the companies who are currently producing good quality stones can present great values.

Jason Hartman is still bullish on real estate and for good reason. In the current environment of financial repression, there are few alternatives to get a decent return on your money, what with banks paying less than one percent on your accounts. His real estate deals regularly pay 10 percent or better cash on cash returns. But he's really excited about driverless cars and believes that it will have a profound impact on the way we work and live. We're getting very close now to the time where you won't have to worry about how much you have to drink when you go out at night since you won't be driving home anyway.

Don Mazzella writes, "It wasn't supposed to be like this for Republicans. A month into their control of both chambers of Congress, they are confronting the very real possibility of a shutdown of the Homeland Security Department later this month.

Instead of advancing a conservative agenda and showing voters they can govern, the GOP has been unable to overcome Senate Democrats' stalling tactics in a dispute over immigration."

You've probably heard by now how a group of low tech hackers managed to steal at least a billion dollars from banks around the globe, in a very short time period. They did it by sending emails with infected links to banks employees. Once they were in the rest was easy. Paul Oster, noted identity theft expert and credit authority explains that virtually everyone with a dollar in the bank or an active credit card is a sitting duck. The only thing you can do is set up a monitoring service and be prepared.

Jason Burack has come up with his three most important rules for investing in The New Normal or as we like to call it The New Economy. Unless you've been holed up in a cave in a state of suspended animation like a hibernating monk, you know that things have changed, both in the US and around the world. The rule of law has eroded and we're living in an era of increasing lawlessness. That's why Jason's rules are so important. Here they are. 

 1. Politicians and governments can and will change the rules anytime they want perhaps on a daily basis

 2. Because of rule #1 people should not go "all in" on investing in any one asset class or investing in only one country or company. At least some real diversification is important to protect against known unknowns or unknown unknowns. 

 3. People should focus on creating as many possible income streams as they can from owning different investments and businesses to protect themselves to survive and thrive whatever is coming in the future thanks to the myopic stupidity and rent seeking behavior of parasitical central planners, politicians, bankers, government bureaucrats, etc

Danielle Park says the fear is always worse than the reality. While no country ever wants to default, the reality is that the debt keeps getting larger and has become unsustainable. Greece and the rest of the world have run out of choices, so now it's time to make the ultimate choice and default. Everyone will feel better in the morning. A four month delay isn't going to make any difference in the long run. It's always better to start with a clean slate, just ask any bankrupt debtor once they've pulled the trigger.

John writes, "  Interest just posted a nice summary of a McKinsey report on the growth of global debt during what some persist in calling the “great deleveraging.” Turns out that since the crisis of 2008, debt has actually risen by $57 trillion, and the ratio of debt to GDP is up 17 percentage points to 286%. Meanwhile, central banks are monetizing 100% of newly-issued sovereign debt. 

The obvious response to this is 1) wow, nothing has been fixed; in fact just the opposite, and 2) these stats, horrendous as they are, are incomplete because they don’t include unfunded liabilities of governments and private pensions, which are just as real as any other kind of debt.

But unfunded liabilities must be getting better, what with the stocks and bonds in pension fund portfolios soaring lately. Right? Since that’s an effortless Google search, that’s what I did. And the results were both counterintuitive and scary. It seems that even with pension fund investment portfolios booming, obligations to future retirees are rising even faster, making these entities even more underfunded today than in 2007."

Lance Edwards has been investing in residential real estate since 2002. Best of all he's been doing it with none of his own money. He's got a free book that available to you that explains it all. First and foremost he looks for value. Once he's got a piece of real estate that produces cash flow, the rest is easy. While we can't endorse his methods, he does have a track record of success.

David Jensen, prolific writer on sound money and finance, joined us to discuss the potential ramifications of the recent Canadian lawsuit dealing with the Bank of Canada and it's mandate to make interest-free loans to the provinces and how that mission somehow got subverted by the BIS (Bank for International Settlements). Now the policy has been challenged in court and the appellate tribunal has allowed the case to continue. This is only an intermediate appeal and whether the plaintiffs will ultimately prevail is an open question. However, it did send some shock waves across Canada and directed some unwanted attention towards the bank's practices. Where it will eventually wind up is anyone's guess.
