Bix Weir and I connected today. With the unannounced end of the Swiss Franc Peg, Bix believes that the potential carnage at the large banks is potentially huge. We won't know how huge for perhaps several months. But it's events like this that show us the fragility of the world financial system. And Bix believes the ultimate set-up is about to take place and when it does, it's farewell too big to fail banks. And then you'll need all the gold and silver you can hoard because the system will be no more.

We connected with Martin Armstrong today. The movie made about him, The Forecaster, is quickly becoming a European blockbuster. He's hoping that it will become available in the States before too long. With the Swiss ending the Franc-Euro peg and the coming sovereign debt collapse, it's all starting to move very quickly. The potential for the world to become a very unpleasant place is increasing by the day. The politicians seem to be more concerned about the next election than the long term well-being of the country. Start planning your defensive strategy now. Forget that pension you were promised, it's probably not going to happen. There's lots more in this timely interview.

David Horowitz was a typical leftist until one day his friend who was doing bookeeping for the Black Panthers disappeared. Her body wasn't found until much later, but it made David understand what the left was really all about. He carries that understanding into his latest series of books, The Great Betrayal: The Black Book of the American Left. In Volume 3 he continues his work on how the president and the modern Democratic Party have betrayed the country and left us open to an inevitable terrorist attack and how President Bush was 100% correct in the aftermath of the 9-11 Attacks.

Heather Wagenhals talks about how millions of homeowners got burned during the Great Recession but real estate can still be the best investment available to the average American. You need to look for cashflow not windfalls! Heather's been a longtime believer in the strategy. We also talked about the Verizon and IRS scams. They're like the EveryReady Bunny. They'll keep going and going until everyone has been hit or at least attempted to be hit up.

Jerry Robinson was on talking about the recent action by the Swiss National Bank and its affect upon the world financial system. Other shoes will be dropping. The recent oil price plunge is another area showing weakness and indicating that things are not what the mainstream media is telling you. We also discussed the plight of the Millennials and what they can do to survive and prosper. They need to learn how to build and fix things, currently skills that are in short supply. Jerry also has a new free service he'd like to share with you.

Ned Schmidt joined us today amid a back drop of exploding debt bombs around the world. Just when you thought it was safe to sell a Swiss Franc short, the Swiss National Banc goes and ends the Euro Peg and all Hell breaks loose. And it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Other counties with pegs are going to see those get broken too. Pegs never work in the long run. Ned's looking forward to some good action in the ag-commodities and some ag stocks as well. But the real action is going to take place in gold and silver. He likes the GDX and thinks the GDXJ may be getting ready for a break-out as well. Take a look and decide. The charts look sweet!

John recently wrote, Switzerland, as everyone knows by now, has slipped out the back door of the drunken orgy that is the modern financial system. And the other revelers are wondering if it’s time to find their own clothes and start tiptoeing towards the exit.

Because the Swiss have such a big “mind share” in the world of finance, it’s easy to forget how tiny their country actually is: Eight million people, a landmass of 40,000 square kilometers (less than half that of Virginia, for instance), and a few interesting but by no means essential exports like watches, chocolate, and pharmaceuticals. But in banking it’s a behemoth. Traditionally the place where money ran to hide, whether gold stolen by Nazis, tax revenues stolen by kleptocrats or personal wealth stashed by reasonable individuals living in unreasonable countries, it has for centuries been as reassuringly — and purposefully — boring as an aging accountant.

In other words, the Swiss are purveyors of financial stability, which requires a rock-solid currency and predictable behavior. The franc, as a result, has for long stretches been the only fiat currency to hold its value versus gold.

I had the pleasure of attending Jason'so annual real investing event. It was a great weekend. I learned so much and met so many jinteliven successful people.  Many of them were long term clients of Jason's organization. It left me more convinced than ever that real estate can have a place in any investor's portfolio. But it needs to be done right and Jason shows you how.

Ivan writes, "Compare the worldwide saturation press coverage of the terrorist killings in Paris of 17 people, including 12 journalists at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, with the minimalist coverage of the even more heinous mass slaughter of innocents or by innocents in Nigeria. At roughly the same time as the Paris attacks, as many as 2,000 people were murdered in Nigeria when radical Islamists, in one of the largest terrorist attacks by a group in modern history (American’s catastrophic 9/11 attacks killed a little less than 3,000 people), razed 16 villages and killed mainly young children and older people, who were not fast enough to get away from spraying gunfire from automatic weapons and grenade launchers. In addition, in two separate attacks, child suicide bombers, who may not have even known they were carrying explosives, killed at least 19 people in markets in the same northeastern region of that country. Why the disparity of the media coverage?"

We also covered the declining Euro and what it means for Greece, Germany and Switzerland as well as the United States. The leadership void has once again brought the financial world to the precipice. Is there someone out there who can think past the next election?

Bo Polny is a student of cycles. Based upon his observations during our interview on election day in November 2014, he predicted that a major precious metals rally was starting that day. While his timing was off by perhaps 48 hours at most, his call has been on the money. Listen to Bo's follow-up on where markets are heading. You'll be happy to know that all your stacking was not in vain. Quite the contrary, the big move is almost upon us!

John L. Casey has served his country, science, and high technology industries for over thirty-five years. He has been a national space policy advisor to the White House and Congress, a space shuttle engineer, consultant to NASA Headquarters, and consultant to or president of several leading edge technology start-ups. He is currently the President of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC) a leading, independent, research organization in Orlando, Florida, USA. The SSRC specializes in the science and planning for the next climate change to decades of cold weather including its predicted concurrent ill-effects of record earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. The SSRC is the primary USA advocate for national and global preparedness for this next cold climate era. 

You're not going to believe the effects of this cooling trend on everything from food production, to energy consumption, to lifestyle patterns. You need to be aware and start planning. The last two winters are just the tip of the proverbial and literal iceberg.

Bob Mazur spent five years undercover infiltrating the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels. The dirty bankers and businessmen he befriended—some of whom still shape power across the globe—knew him as Bob Musella, a wealthy, mob-connected big shot living the good life. Together they partied in $1,000-per-night hotel suites, drank bottles of the world’s finest champagne, drove Rolls-Royce convertibles, and flew in private jets. But under Mazur’s Armani suits and in his Renwick briefcase, recorders whirred quietly, capturing the damning evidence of their crimes. Now his story is coming to the silver screen with Bryan Cranston playing Bob. It promises to be a great movie and a real shocker.

Joe Messina joined us today for a closer look at a world that gets wackier by the moment. Did you hear about the Walmart Clerk who refused to print out the couple's picture because they were holding shotgun? Or how about New York, where the police are turning their backs on their mayor, Comrade deBlasio? What is a semi-sane person to do? Listen to FSN, that's for sure!

Rick Ackerman has been successfully investing in the stock market during the current run up. He's done it using his Hidden-Pivot system. While the market might be taking a bit of a breather right now, Rick believes that there's a good possibility that it will take off again soon. However, using his system, you're able to play the market in both directions with little risk. It's worth taking a look at.

John writes, a few years ago (when the world was very different) veteran mining analyst Jay Taylor told me something that seemed counterintuitive: Deflation can actually be a good thing for the gold and silver mining business — if the prices of mining inputs like oil fall faster than the price of precious metals.

In other words, it’s not inflation or deflation per se that matter, but the distribution of price trends. “With quantitative easing,” said Taylor, “the liquidity being pumped into the system has caused energy and labor costs to rise, which has more than offset higher precious metals prices. Historically, the miners have actually done better in a deflationary environment in which gold and silver are seen as monetary metals and the cost of getting them out of the ground declines due to lower energy and labor.” 

So the relationship of gold to the rest of the commodities complex is a good indicator of the mining environment. Gold might be down, but if it’s relatively strong, the mining equation is favorable. Today it's improving.

Mike Gazzola has made millions buying and selling foreclosures. He's found a way for anyone, anywhere in the country/world to do it remotely. He likes Florida because their online public records are easily accessible and extremely detailed. He's got a system that makes it simple and it doesn't matter how much money you start with. People are doing it right now as we speak!

Bill Glynn sees unbridled cyber warfare in 2015. The amount of damage that can be inflicted by just one determined hacker is almost incalculable. He believes what was done to Target and Home Depot is just a warm-up act compared to what's going to happen next. The government is going to dump a trillion dollars into the defense sector in an effort to avert this disaster. Will it be enough?

Danielle joined us after the holiday hiatis. It's amazing how quickly the credit bust is picking up steam. As Danielle has said, "It's like an escalator when it starts up and it becomes an elevator when it goes down." Perhaps it's becoming an out of control elevator, with the trillions in derivatives that are circulating now. The question is when will it reach crisis proportions? Stay tuned to find out!

Telling It Like It Is Tuesday with Andrew Hoffman:

  • Gold reaching record highs in most currencies;
  • Oil and base metals sinking;
  • Most of world's currencies collapsing;
  • Silver production will crater as base metal production does;
  • We told you so!

Bob Hoye, renowned economic historian, joined us for a review of where we've been in this massive credit boom/bust and where we're going. You'll be surprised at his predictions. Look for more excessive dollar strength, more oil price weakness and look for a dramatic increase in the real price of gold and mining shares. As energy prices crater that's a major boost for the miners. Their margins go way up. Lots more here that you need to hear.

Tom Cloud our expert on precious metals and diamonds joined us today. We both agree that a perfect storm is forming in the Global Economic System. Crashing oil prices are just one symptom of it. Depressed precious metals prices aren't likely to stay there much longer, especially silver. When things really heat up, prices will quickly rise and supply will fast disappear. All signs seem to be pointing in that direction. That's why preparation is so important.

Bill and Melinda Gates are finally doing something worthwhile. Wish Bill would invest some energy into Microsoft they can use it. There's a unit coming out that they helped fund that can generate energy and water from feces. It will really help third world countries eliminate disease and improve their water quality. 

Next, why are college students only reading at 7th to 8th grade level. Why is that exceptable? Actually it isn't. Something needs to be done now. Literacy is hanging in the balance. 

Finally, in a direct challenge to Comrade de Blasio, the NYPD has stopped its revenue raising activities. The City is now a better place and there won't be any more Eric Garner incidents either. Everyone wins on this one except the greedy libs who still want an ever larger share of your hard earned dollars.

Jason Burack gave us his market forecasts for 2015. He sees financial repression lasting well past 2015, which means low interest rates and low returns. The oil implosion has presented a buying opportunity in select energy stocks. You need to find issues with solid cash flow and good hedges. Gold will probably have more of the same as in 2014, but with China, Russia and India still buying and the EU getting very covetous of their reserves, 2015 could be the year. There's plenty more sage advice contained therein for your listening and investing pleasure.

Former Congressman John Leboutillier is concerned that the leaders of the new Republican Congress are rudderless. They appear to have no vision for leadership and this can't end well. So be prepared to see them manhandled by Obama yet again. 

Next, what happened in Paris can become the norm if the world's governments allow it to become so. John says these Islamists need to be wiped off the face of the Earth. Who can argue with that? 

Finally, Comrade deBlasio is an incompetent boob who will hopefully be a one turn mayor. John says when things are going well the populace gets complacent and elects a liberal just to remind them of what can go wrong, and boy are they getting a major lesson now!
