Craig Hemke a/k/a Turd Ferguson joined us today. Amazing how funny things happen to PM prices at the end of the month/quarter. But it appears for now at least that gold and silver have reached bottoms and there's just very little downside here. And as Europe and the Euro heat up and Greece gets ready to exit and the war clouds continue to darken, the rest of the world is stocking up, which leaves the West exactly where? Well that remains yet to be seen, but as long as the powers that be can keep prices where they want them and the stock market keeps going up then all is well, right?

The more crazy the world gets, the wiser Bix Weir gets. His Road-to-Roota theory may have seemed absurd a few years ago, but it's seeming more and more likely as we approach the final crash. Now you can read all about it in his new book Silver, Gold, Bitcoin…and God! Just when you thought things couldn't get any crazier, you've got Alan Greenspan going around singing the praises for gold and the Bernanke opening a Twitter Account. Next thing you know Obama will start playing the Silver Futures Market! But seriously, the book is great and it's quite humorous too. You owe to yourself to purchase a copy.

John writes that as healthcare costs are rising, personal income isn't. Many other costs such as car insurance, homeowners insurance, college tuition, etc., keep rising. So while the wealth effect of rising asset prices keeps the rich feeling richer, the reverse wealth effect keeps the rest of us feeling poorer. Eventually something has got to give. What it will be is the question. Will we wind up like Greece?

There are several ways to fix student loan debt problems. None of them could be defined as “quick.”


According to a report released by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in February, student loan debt has climbed to $1.16 trillion. While still a distant second to U.S. mortgage debt ($8.17 trillion), it now exceeds the total value of every U.S. car loan ($955 billion), all credit card debt ($700 billion) and all home equity loans ($510 billion). It's also just shy of all the money ($1.3 trillion) the Federal Reserve has in circulation. If that student loan debt grows by another $33 billion, as it did last quarter, every dollar bill and handful of spare change in the country couldn't pay it.

Jason Hartman has made his fortune investing in real estate and helping others do the same. Now he shares his "Refi Till You Die" plan for big gains and best of all it's tax-free. It's what all the big real estate moguls like Donald Trump do with their properties and it's what you should be doing too. Depending upon the appreciation rate of your property, interest rates and other factors, you can substantially increase your wealth accumulation rate by following Jason's plan. Of course always consult your accountant, attorney and financial planner before you act.

Andrew Zatlin runs a Big Data firm called Moneyball Economics, and he’d like to share with you how vices – such as escort prices, gambling and alcohol consumption – predict economic growth. You’ll be surprised to learn how much the Las Vegas hospitality union has in common with prostitutes.


Zatlin has been featured in the Wall Street Journal because his forecasts are “knocking it out of the park.” Business Insider also dubbed Zatlin’s economic “Vice Index” as “incredibly accurate.”

Danielle Park is concerned that Wall Street is completely unconcerned about their responsibilities as their clients' fiduciary. This puts them in the position of trust, which in the last several decades has been clearly unearned. What steps will they take to restore it? So far not much. The Obama administration was attempting to change this state of affairs and was met with near universal condemnation from Wall Street. What's going on here? Can Wall Street not exist without looting it's customers' accounts? Is their profit model based upon corruption? Something's got to give here.

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. 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?

-Europe - QE set to start next month and NIRP expanding to the point it may catalyze bank runs (i.e., backdoor bail-ins)

                - Article - "WE ARE AT THE LOWER BOUND"


Secession -

                - 1.8 million Catalonians rallied Friday for secession, 25% of Spanish tax revnues

                -Majority of Venetians favor secession, 10% of Italian GDP

                -Scotland 50% odds of "yes" vote Wednesday, would destabilize all of Europe (and Scotland would own 90% of North Sea oil revenues)



-"Strengthening dollar" fallacy, as emerging market - and ALL - currencies plummeting, per the expansion of the "FINAL CURRENCY WAR" circa 2011-12 that keeps gaining momentum.

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.
