Automotive Expert Pam Oakes uses her expertise to elaborate on the sudden surge of car financing and how the automakers are making it too easy once again.There’s absolutely no question that owning a car is essential today in the United States. In most parts of the country, public transportation isn’t sufficient enough to get mass numbers of commuters from home to work and back. So the obvious solution is to drive automakers, along with dealerships are making it all too easy to finance. Are we headed for a car industry boom/bust?

Former Arizona county Sheriff Richard Mack, a fierce opponent of Obamacare and a leader in the "constitutional sheriff" movement, is struggling to pay his medical bills after he and his wife each faced serious illnesses. 

Former Arizona county Sheriff Richard Mack, a fierce opponent of Obamacare and a leader in the "constitutional sheriff" movement, is struggling to pay his medical bills after he and his wife each faced serious illnesses. The former sheriff and his wife do not have health insurance and started a GoFundMe campaign to solicit donations from family and friends to cover the costs of their medical care.

 

"Because they are self-employed, they have no medical insurance and are in desperate need of our assistance," reads a note on Mack's personal website.

 

Mack, the founder of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, suffered a heart attack in January and is in recovery. His wife fell ill late last year. Mack is on the board of Oath Keepers, a right-wing fringe group made up of police and military veterans, and is known for supporting Cliven Bundy in his standoff against the federal government. He is also an ardent opponent of Obamacare.

My Recent Trip To New York City And Uber Experience

I hadn't been in New York in over one year. While Comrade DeBlasio is doing his best to bankrupt the place there are good things happening there now. Uber has improved taxi service dramatically. Clean efficient service from clean cut well mannered drivers. No wonder the price of a taxi medallion is plunging. Use this code to save $20 anywhere in the world. https://www.uber.com/invite/dnbn6. I love Uber and you will too!

 

PS 106, that epicenter of public educational failure in New York City is back in the news. Seems that the new principal is cleaning house of all the "troublemakers" from her predecessor's reign of terror. And the place is just as chaotic and troubled as ever, according to the NY Post. When will the City learn that Johnny can't read because they can't manage a hotdog stand let alone a public school? Get government out of the business of educating our youth, it's just far too important.

With what's going on in the world now, we're all hedge fund managers, but many of us don't have the tools to manage the risk. With negative interest rates breaking out all over the place, central banks are starting to buy those Nigerian Bonds. How about oil, they're going to start filling up your swimming pool because they're literally running out of places to put the stuff. It's a mad, mad, mad world out there and they're coming for your assets, so watch out!

Tres Knipa has been trading commodities for many years. He believes that shorting the Yen and Japanese Government Bonds is the trade of a lifetime. He sees the current Ponzi economy unwinding as we speak. The Yen and all other currencies have been declining against the Greenback. Pretty soon the Yuan peg will be history. There's more turmoil down the pike. Be prepared and be poised to profit from it. And owning some precious metals isn't a bad idea either.

Tom Cloud sees the supply situation for gold and silver tightening. Forget about the supplies for colored diamonds, they're practically non-existent in the West. Seems that wealth just keeps moving from West to East and nothing can change this cycle of events. But there's a lot more that's going to happen soon. Are the Blacks Swans circling?

Sean Caranna of Executive Director of Florida Carry, Inc. joined us today for a discussion of the state of gun control in Florida. Contrary to what most people believe, even though Florida is a "shall-issue" state, open carry of hand guns is prohibited. It some other quirky regulations designed to trip up law abiding firearms owners that Sean is working hard to have overturned by the courts. Still compared to New York, Florida is a haven for Second Amendment adherents. But there's still more to be done

Dave Bego joined us to discuss Wisconsin's passage of their Right to Work Statute. They are now the 25th state to pass such a law. This is great news for the working man, despite what the union thugs might tell you. States that have right to work laws are growing much faster than non-right to work states and their citizens are enjoying faster growing standards of living.

Rick Ackerman joined us today and his charts are saying that he wants to see higher highs in the market. However, with the market swinging in a violent range it just feels like a top. From a purely technical standpoint, his hidden pivots aren't getting hit. Clearly profits down due to the dollar's strength and the decline in international profits when adjusted for currency translation. Caution is the byword. You can't underestimate the power of the dollar's move.

Chris currently concentrates his practice in real estate, foreclosure defense litigation and mortgage loan modifications. Therefore, he's uniquely situated to observe the latest developments in the real estate foreclosure mess. He believes that there may perhaps be a light at the end of the tunnel. This may partly be a result of loosening lending standards that's making it possible to new borrowers to get into the market. Whether this will make for a healthier market long term remains to be seen.

Kyle Simon, Director of Policy and Advocacy at the Center for Lawful Access and Abuse Deterrence (CLAAD) sees an alarming trend spreading from the UK to the US. Just last week UK police can now conduct mouth swabs to determine if motorists are driving under the influence of drugs. Kyle sees issues with the tests as they only detect the presence of drugs, not whether the individual is actually under the influence. Many people who suffer from extreme pain need these drugs to carry on any semblance of normal functioning. Unfortunately any test on the market cannot make such fine distinctions. And that's where wholesale injustices can arise.

John Rubino joined us for our Monday chat. Looks like the US economic juggernaut is coming to an abrupt hault. The fracking boom has fracked out and with it the one bright spot in the US economy. There's really not much picking up the slack. With the Euro plunge and other currencies doing the same, US goods have gotten much more costly around the globe. This is leading to decreased exports and decreased economic activity, a la the reignition of the currency wars. How far can QE be when the US Dollar index breaks 100?

Martin Armstrong has always been controversial, but he's always been his own person. When the US Government demanded he turn over his software he refused, much to his detriment. The rest is history that is finally being told in the movie The Forecaster, the story of his life and eventual incarceration. But Martin is anything but bitter. He just wants the truth to come out, which is why it's a European production. It's coming to the US in April. Check his site, for the dates and times. Not to be missed.

Neither is his forecast for the Euro and the rest of the economy. He's sticking to his forecast of vastly higher stock prices, although the timetable is perhaps a little longer than initially predicted. Either way, we're in for one hell of a party starting in the third quarter of this year. Don't believe it, look at the price of the Euro, which broke the critical 1.10 support level on 3-10-15, all of which Martin forecast long ago.

Bob Hoye, esteemed economic historian, gives us a wide ranging review of what's happening now and what will happen next in the world economy. There's more good news for the US Dollar and more bad news for the rest of the world's currencies. Further contraction in the world economy, the world's stock markets and more bad news for the world's governments. Prices of most commodities will keep going down, but that's good for mining profits as the key components for production will keep going down. Bob believes that Central Banking is pure folly, much like Daylight Savings Time.

Danielle Park joined us to discuss the futility of QE in the EU and Daylight Savings Time around the world. While the governments try to jump start the economy with a premature implementation of Daylight Savings Time, nothing is going to save the lagging world economy. Consumption continues to decline and little can be done to bring it back. While car sales are booming its completely debt fed and will eventually crash. Investment professionals urging the unsuspecting masses to leverage your vehicle and invest in the stock is just insanity, but all too typical.

Contrary to what AG Eric Holder says, Dr. John Lott doesn't buy that the Ferguson PD is racist and he shows that the stats don't prove it either. Rather, it's the Holder's DOJ that wanted to prove it's conclusion without looking at the facts or the truth. Yet another case of the teapot calling the kettle black. Not that there aren't problems in Ferguson, but they have nothing to do with racism and everything to do with PC run amok.

Jim Rogers says things are upside and hopefully not worse than that. We've got a giant artificial wave of liquidity floating about which must come to an end. There's going to be an event that's going to happen which will end it all. Central Bankers aren't going to come to their senses, they are simply bureaucrats and politicians who have never had a real job and don't really know what they're doing. The Swiss Central Bank was forced into breaking the peg because they would have gone bankrupt otherwise. It's all about the folly of man and governments, which never changes.

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.
