John Manfreda of WallStForMainSt.com joined us today. Looks like DC may be gearing up for an oil war to exact revenge on Russia for trying to bypass the petrodollar in dealings with India and China. While it may be bad for the Saudis it may be the only hope the US has of preserving the status quo. Far-fetched perhaps, but the empire must go on.

John Rubino sees big risks for the Dollar ahead. As it tries to punish Russia for the latter’s dismemberment of Ukraine, the West is discovering that the balance of power isn’t what it used to be. Russia is a huge supplier of oil and gas — traded in US dollars — which gives it both leverage over near-term energy flows and, far more ominous for the US, the ability to threaten the dollar’s reign as the world’s reserve currency. And it’s taking some big, active steps towards that goal.

California Senator Leland Yee A major anti-gunner is arrested for gun running. What is the world coming to? Just shows how insincere the anti-gun crowd really is. When you read the affidavit of his statements and his total callousness for what purpose the guns he was helping to smuggle were going to be to, it's just shocking. 

Also electronic currencies are going mainstream. Now the Treausury is looking to get in on the act of regulating digital currencies and this can only be a bad sign of things to come. Also Auroracoin is giving digital currency away to Icelanders. Is it too good to be true? We will soon find out, won't we.

Delia Horwitz author of Collaboration Soup sees a huge societal shift taking place before our very eyes. People can no longer go it alone, nor do they wish to. That's why a company like AirBNB is now working with the "Enemy." Rather than fighting governments around the country, they're embracing them and working with them to insure that members can rent rooms legally and in compliance with local laws. A minor example yes, but important nonetheless. Local agriculture and farm to table is taking off around the country as well, a trend that was unthinkable just a few years ago. Expect the trend to accelerate and dominate in the coming years.

When it comes to food and precious metals there are few people out there with more experience following them than Ned Schmidt. He believes that Fed tightening is the death knell for the Nasdaq or Techno-Junk as he calls it. He sees the up cycle for food and precious metals as full steam ahead. The California Drought and increased population as well as other factors have seen food prices take off in 2014. According to ZeroHedge, they're up 19% this year already. There's probably some inflation due to money printing in there as well. Ned suggests a number of stocks that will benefit from the trend. He's been right for the past couple of years and there's no reason to believe he won't be right now.

We caught up with our friend Joe Messina today and covered a number of topics. From Comrade DeBlasio's collapsing agenda in New York City, to teachers getting caught having sex in school and then having a court say they can keep their jobs, to the UN taking over the Internet, to Obama missing out on Fortune's Top 50 Leader list; you have wonder can the world get any crazier than it is now?

A major precious metals dealer goes belly up and virtually nobody is talking about it. Well that's not how FSN deals with major news. Fortunately that's not how our sponsor Owings Metals deals with it either. This is important information that you need to know about. In addition to talking about the gold market, we discuss ways for you to protect yourself from insolvent bullion dealers and ways to split up your purchases to avoid a similar fate. You need to hear what Seth and I have to say about this.

Michael Krieger, frequent ZeroHedge contributor and well known writer, joined us to talk about the epidemic of corporate welfare and the wave of kleptocracy sweeping the US economy. Michael believes the decentralization is the way that people can take it back. He cites the example of marijuana legalization in Colorado and Washington States as a perfect example. If you wait for the government to figure it out, you'll be waiting a long time.

Gordon T. Long appeared on the show today. We took a trip around the world surveying the vast landscape of malinvestment and insane government policies. So many countries are on the edge that it's impossible to know which one will implode. In Japan their money printing and demographics are a sure recipe for disaster. The US's student loan bubble and auto loan craziness can't end well. The EU is sinking money into US treasuries. Russia is determined to sink the dollar. China is seeing defaults and is now starting to see its first bank runs. So flip a coin, your guess is as good as ours.

We're catching up for lost time with Bill Holter. Seems there's a bit of a real estate panic going on in China in case you hadn't heard. Just like what happened in the US in 2006-07, only worse. This is leading to a collapse in the luxury Hong Kong real estate market and it's going to be felt in real estate markets around the globe. More importantly, it's going to speed up the global currency reallignment, so buckle your seat belt and get ready.

We connected with our old friend Alasdair McLeod of GoldMoney. As he sees it, the US has blown it big time in the Ukraine. Putin is nothing, if not a smart intelligence operative. He knows a CIA operation when he sees one. Now the chickens are coming home to roost for the dollar and they're not going to be pretty. On to China, a big crash is coming there, and the results are going to be felt around the world. Eventually, it's all going to be good for gold and precious metals.

Peter Schiff was back and he's not buying any of Janet Yellen's happy talk. While she might talk a big game about ending Quantitative Easing, the reality is that she will never be able to and she will have to come back with even more money printing. Her strategy is predicated on a higher rate of US Economic growth that will prove impossible to achieve. When reality dawns, she'll have no choice but to return to the Quantitative Easing Trough for even more Easy Money.

Danielle Park believes Fed Chair Janet Yellen when she claims that QE is coming to an end and interest rates will be raised. Does this mean that the Fed will no longer finance the US budget deficit? Danielle says yes. If true, this would be a sea change. The Congress would have to change its evil ways and actually balance the budget. Few can see that day coming, but Danielle believes it will soon be here.

Doug Casey is no lover of government. He believes that they are run by power-crazed sociopaths who like to mess with their citizens' heads. As they get more entrenched, the problem gets worse, until you have the situation that the United States now finds itself in. The potential for a major war can be seen in numerous places around the world. As a collapse gets closer, government always seeks to find someone else to blame and that makes a major war more likely. Doug is not feeling optimistic these days.

Our sponsor Jason Hartman has done extremely well in real estate and has helped so many realize its benefits as well. While he's not what one would call a Gold Bug, he believes in owning the yellow metal for protection from a currency bust. He also sees owning real estate as protection from the inevitable inflationary pressures of the current monetary policies being pursued by the government and the Federal Reserve. Make sure you go to this link for a special offer.

Gold is never far from Jeff Clark's heart or mind. He helps helps work his family’s placer claims in California, Nevada, and Arizona. Armed with this knowledge he's quite confident that gold and silver's big moves are yet to come, for a number of reasons. Chief among them, reckless monetary policy by the world's central banks and the endless appetite for precious metals by China and other Asian countries.

We were very fortunate to catch up with our old friend David Morgan of the Morgan Report. As always, he's on top of and ahead of the market. David says, "The white metals lead the yellow metal." In this case it's palladium leading the rest of the PM's. And guess where virtually all of the world's palladium is produced? Answer-Russia. This metal is used in catalytic converters to eliminate smog as well as oil refineries to crack oil. One of those little known resources that man would have a hard time replacing. A great interview that you don't want to miss.

John Rubino of DollarCollapse.com joined us for our Monday discussion. He says, "It’s amazing how quickly China went from being the world’s savior to its biggest danger." To recap:

When the developed world stepped off a cliff in 2008, China responded by borrowing about $15 trillion and spending most of it on infrastructure. Roads, bridges, skyscrapers, power plants, whole cities went up around the country. The resulting demand for everything from iron ore to wind turbines helped offset contractions in the US and Europe, turning an incipient global Depression into nothing more than a severe recession.

But government-directed growth on this scale produces a mountain of misallocated capital which eventually comes back to haunt its owner. And that's where we are now.

Let's face it the economy stinks and probably won't get much better. That's the bad news, however, the good news is that no matter how bad the economy might be, there's always a shortage of great sales people. If you can become one, the world is yours for the taking. That's where Dan's new Optimal Sales Person course comes in. It's inexpensive, but Dan gives you a step by step guide to becoming just that person.

Nick Barisheff has been a bullion dealer for many years. He's never seen a better environment for owning gold in his entire career. The world's economy is getting more unstable by the day. From the economy in the United States, to China economic ills. to Russian expansionist desires. The black swans are circling and who no desire to go back into hibernation. It's just a matter of time until one day we wake up and the news is out. By then if you don't own gold it will be too late.
