Boom in consumer purchases in durable goods. Surging imports and price increases. Container shortage. Triggered by stimulus money.

Tracking the Fed, still buying bonds. Short term rates are locked down, but they’re encouraging higher long term rates, they’ve tripled so far. They could go up to 2% for 10 year and then they’ll cap it. 3% would be a major problem. We’re getting over 2% inflation. Long term rates are okay up to the inflation rate for now. The Fed has spoken with a unified voice that they’re accepting higher rates for now. As has Treasury Sec Yellen. Rising growth and rising rates are okay as long as they don’t go up too fast and too high.

Wolf sees it as the Fed’s minor way of bringing order back to the markets. Look for a slightly depressed housing sector. Clamping down on exuberence, pulling the punch bowl away. It could go pretty far if inflation and expectations continue higher. Eventually they will step in to stop long term rates from increasing higher.

Precious metals have already benefited from this beginning inflationary cycle. They might very well have gone up in anticipation of the beginnings of the cycle. If it turns out to be bigger and badder, then there could be another run-up. A lot of interest in cryptos could have drained demand for precious metals. Cryptos can’t be compared to anything else, by design. Supply is unlimited. Copycats galore. If enough hedge funds and asset managers buy it, the sky is the limit. There’s more cryptos than stocks now.

Everything is inflated except bonds, excluding junk bonds. Hard to recommend buying anything at this point. Everything is overvalued. Hang on to what you have and buy productive assets, those that generate a cash flow.

Andy has been working 20 hours a day. That’s how intense the demand is for precious metals. Last month every bullion deal shut down due to a major dump of metals contracts into the market. Physical metal is being drained from the SLV and the Comex. Same with the London Metals Exchange. Price is misdirecting the public as the powers that be use the opportunity to drain the metal out.

Spend, spend, spend. All the talking heads talk about is spending money. Debt issuance goes up and the Fed prints the difference. While rates have gone up, Andy believes they’re not going much higher. We’ll be paying more in interest than they receive in taxes. Hello inflation. The real rate will stay negative. The best environment for precious metals ever. What could really kill the gold price, 17-18% interest rates. We’re looking at YCC (yield curve control) in spades. There’s no way out. Pullbacks are an opportunity to continue to stack.

Inflation is running rampant. Tax receipts hardly cover the interest. Let’s get rid of taxes and let the Fed print the difference. It’s easy to become discouraged when we see so many precious metal smackdowns. It’s been going on for years now.

US mint has had a tough time meeting demand. They’ve been swamped by demand. Andy heard a rumor that there’s a high probability that the mint will shut down for two month hiatis to retool their equipment for new bullion coins. The Canadian mint has also had supply issues. Without the Perth Mint and UK Mint supply would really be at issue.

Chris Vermeulen joined us to share his views of where the markets are at and why being on the sidelines in cash is not such a bad thing. For the Stock Market - Sector rotation into the Dow and Transport Index doing well. It’s flock not a shift. Stuck under the 50 day moving average. Small caps and Dow are holding up well vis-a-vis the Nasdaq. Where can you go and find value? There’s so much money searching for the next move. It could be getting a little overheated. Energy is the way to go. It’s leading the way and where the money’s flowing. 

No Bonds for You - Bonds Away. Fear is creeping in. Investors not trusting US Bond Market. People are indifferent to bonds. Investors aren’t buying any defensive positions. We’re getting closer to a deeper correction. Not a whole lot of changes in interest rates. The market is getting long of tooth. 

Along with the $1400 Robinhood Subsidy Check record flows going into the market and coming out. Just a matter of time till it runs out of steam. Another market push coming. Next leg down is coming. Where’s the money going? 1-2 weeks. Avoid the chop. Big moves equal big haircuts.

Gold and Silver could see the bottom fall out. A running consolidation. Silver still has a bearish consolidation. Stay on the sidelines and get in when the dust settles. Majority of investors have been very tech heavy. If you’re in it you’ve probably seen the worst. A little more to come. Long term bull flag patterns. Dollar is playing a big part in it. Fear among big investors. Global money is moving to the dollar. Charts are saying move to cash. Music is coming to an end. Sidelines are a great place to be when corrections rear their ugly head.

Our 2020 trip to Silver One’s (sponsor) Hawthorne, Nevada Candelaria Project demonstrated that the company was on to something big. Candelaria is one of richest silver mines in Nevada history and is now ready to enter its next phase. Recent drill results intersected 1,032 g/t Ag over 3.05 Meters with a 12.2-meter zone averaging 407 g/t along with 0.55 g/t of AU. Nearly two-thirds of its 15,000-meter program have been drilled. Twenty-five out of 30 holes were successfully finished. The assays of 13 holes have expanded the down-dip mineralization an additional 250 meters to the north at Mount Diablo and an additional 100 meters to the north-northeast of the Northern Belle pit. This is great news because it has proven Crowe’s belief that mineralization is far more extensive than previously believed and that there’s lots more yet to be discovered.

The news keeps getting better, last year Silver One updated its 43-101 technical report on its abandoned heap leach pads. Pad 1 has 30 million ounces of silver and pad 2 has 15 million. This combined with other parts of Candelaria means that production options have been greatly expanded

For a combination of cash and stock, Silver One is transferring its Mexican properties to Silverton Metals, thus increasing its cash hoard to help further fund its ambitious drill programs.

Cherokee and Phoenix, it’s two other projects are moving quickly ahead as well. Drill targets have been identified at Cherokee and geologic mapping has been completed on over 90% of the claim block.

Crowe is especially excited about Phoenix where a 417-pound fragment containing up to 70% silver recently found. Another smaller vein fragment returned almost 50% silver or 14,688 ounces per ton. They’re studying and surveying the area looking for more rich targets. On a nearby adjoining property, a porphyry copper deposit is being developed. Phoenix’s silver-bearing polymetallic veins may also be associated with a porphyry copper system at depth. So, stay tuned for more good news. We’re very happy shareholders.

CPA Bob Wheeler says that, “We all deal with financial issues and choices every day. Most of what we learned about money came from our family. How they thought and reacted to money choices shaped our thinking today.

But, have you ever stopped to consider that maybe they didn’t know what they were doing? Maybe you set unrealistic goals based on other’s ideas and mandates. If you are overwhelmed with credit card debt, can’t seem to save money and feel hopeless and afraid just thinking about money – it is time for a change.”

It’s time to stop financial self-sabotage and go for it. You need to identify false beliefs and prevail over them. It requires some work, you need to hear what you’re telling yourself and change it. Listen to the undervoice. You need to know where they came from and how you got where you are today.

First, no Brian is not concerned about Friday's gold/silver price rout. He  is focused on the companies. The stocks are not getting hit as hard as physical metal. The investment argument for gold and silver has never been better, especially in light of the rampant money printing. Inflation isn’t like a light switch, you just turn it on or off. It’s a process that once started has to run its course. It’s a chain reaction and we live in a complex world. No one knows how it will resolve itself. Are we headed to a monetary apocalypse?

Brian has 17 companies in his portfolio of which 14 are precious metal concerns. He’s shifted his focus away from base metals. He’s bullish on copper and nickel. $27 nickel was the high, will we hit it again? In his opinion, FPX Nickel is the best nickel play out there. Copper recently broke $4 and is headed much higher. A copper gold company is an ideal investment in today's market. Copper-gold porphyries have the best prospects of any mine out there. A lot of great investment info here.

I have been investing for the past 4 decades often with great success. During that time I’ve studied thousands of companies’ financial statements, in search of value that others had missed. I know we’re in the age of the Tech Giant and value investing is out of vogue, that’s often the case in frothy markets, but in the long run the market always returns to value. This is why I’ve taken a position in Trillion Energy CSE:TCF  OTC:TCFF

 (sponsor). Listen to my interview and hear CEO Art Halleran explain that there is about US $300 million in natural gas production assets (drill rigs, platforms, pipelines, processing plant, etc.) that is completely absent from Trillion’s balance sheet.

Art is a petroleum geologist with 38 years of experience who’s built a number of successful energy companies. He’s never been more excited than he is about Trillion. And in this cynical investor’s opinion, he’s a straight-shooter who tells it like it is. If a mid-tier natural gas producer wished to acquire the SASB asset, Art said they would pay at least $100 million, or slightly less than $1 per share (as of Friday share price was 11.44 cents and the market cap was about $14 million). But the company isn’t for sale, for the simple reason that in Art’s opinion its value is far greater. That’s because the SASB natural gas field that it’s currently developing is worth several times that number. Art has the experience and the ability to bring that field into production, as well as numerous other promising targets in the area. Best of all, there’s very little capex required, since the platforms and necessary infrastructure are already in place.

Most of Trillion’s assets are in the Black Sea, in Turkish waters. However, they’ve been dealing with the Turkish Government for over a decade and relations have been extremely cordial. They are partners with the Turkish State Oil Company (TPAO). Trillion’s expertise in drilling underwater wells is well demonstrated and they provide skills that aren’t easily obtainable. Right now, the majority of Turkey’s natural gas comes from Russia. All of the SASB production will be purchased by TPAO to reduce the country’s reliance on imports.


Trillion already has cash flow coming from existing oil wells in the area. It knows how to effectively operate in this part of the world. Perhaps most important, Trillion’s gas sells from $6-8 per million btu’s, unlike North America where the same gas is selling for $2.77 per million btu’s. Equally as important, global natural gas consumption is steadily rising, which means future returns over the years could increase greatly.

For all of the reasons above, I’ve taken a position in Trillion and I’m very excited about its future.

Soon after he opened his vineyard for business many years ago, the Wealthy Gardener noticed a puzzling fact. Everyone wanted money, but only a few people managed to accumulate it. The reason, he realized, is that most people focus on short term gains instead of achieving lasting wealth.

As he grew old and aware of his dwindling time on this Earth, the Wealthy Gardener began to share his hard-earned wisdom with the financially troubled in his community, patiently mentoring those who asked for his practical advice on the ways of prosperity.

The parable of the Wealthy Gardener is far more than an admonishment to earn more or spend less; it is about timeless principles. As his lessons reveal, financial freedom is a means to power and control over our lives. Without money, we are subject to the demands and whims of others. With money, we are sheltered from the storm, and we can extend that shelter to our loved ones.

Poised to become an intimate financial classic, The Wealthy Gardener will inspire readers to find their own noble purpose and relieve their money worries once and for all. No matter your income level, skillset, or unique economic disadvantages, the lessons in this book will show you the path forward. All you need is the will to work, the desire to succeed, and the motivation to learn.

He continues the lessons in his upcoming book The Wealth Essentials System. It will be out in August.

It’s a dangerous time to be a novice investor at this particular time, ie Gamestop. The stock had $3 and got to nearly $500. The triggered short squeeze was legendary. Never mistake a bull market for genius. Just because you got lucky doesn’t mean you’ll keep repeating the process. No one really knows what the top is. It’s a process. Bottoms are an event. The signs are all. SPAC’s are another sign of topping. Most  of these deals are garbage, Dan urges caution. There’s nothing new under the sun. 


It’s all about valuation and cash flow and eventually prices go too far and comes back to earth. Innovation disrupters can be profitable, but they can be very dangerous. Avoid irrational exuberance at all costs. 

Dan says that today, life is better for more people on earth than at any time in the past. He believes that cash is the best hedge against market instability indicative of a top. Have plenty of cash, gold, silver and some Bitcoin too. Always take money out of the market from your profits. You’re there to make money so you can have it spend as you want. You're not a Las Vegas gambler doubling down on every bet till you finally crap out.  

Hyperinflation is misunderstood overly feared. To have it you need a major war and the massive destruction of capital assets and lots of people in financial and physical dire straights. A pandemic looks like it could trigger it but we need more than that. 

His view on Cryptos is that they're a burgeoning store of value whose staying power is untested. In the modern world it has a number of potential benefits and vulnerabilities such as the downing of the electrical grid in Texas. People there were not clamoring for Bitcoin, they wanted electricity, heat and hot water. 

In a final world of advice, Dan says, "Prepare don’t predict." We don’t know what will happen and we shouldn’t try. Instead diversification is your best strategy!

When it comes to humans, and new technology, predicting the future has never been easier, so says noted futurist Rebecca Costa.

As the world comes out of its Covid induced coma, most individual behavior will stay the same, but societally it’s going to be a different ball game. What will happen to with the debt? Hyperinflation? Is allowing the economy to hyper-inflate a solution? As we know from history, the government’s best friend is inflation, until it isn't. They are out of options. As Rebecca says, there’s a long tail economic impact.

In an article she  recently wrote about what the government can do about in the next 3-6 months to head off potential disasters in a number of sectors, she mentions individual credit ratings as having taken a hit. Of course it's not on government's radar at all, but to individuals it's extremely vital. Lower credit scores create a piling on effect Millions of people have seen their scores tanks, through no fault of their own. It's a government induced disaster. Lower credit scores mean higher costs of credit or the inability to obtain any credit at all. Fairness is lacking. 

Government is reacting to the situation rather than getting out ahead of it. Perhaps a roll-back of credit ratings to pre-pandemic rates or a limit on the negative impact during this time is in order. 

We need pragmatic problem solvers to lead us. People who will catch these things before they go exponential. The problems are known and yet nothing is being done. The result is too much uncertainty about their eventual response.

Rebecca sees subprime mortgage collapse 2.0 in the offing. The financial institutions were responsible for 1.0 and now they’re going to make the same mistake again. People should be permitted to rewrite their loans for a longer time period. Massive restructuring needs to be on the table. Make mortgages assumable so the property can stay in the family. Same with student loans. Simple elegant solutions that work. 

Rebecca informs us that there’s a direct correlation between happiness and trust. People who trust their government are generally happier than those who don’t. We can’t wait for a time to governmental trust to be restored. We also don't see it happening in the near future.

What happens when you combine a completely out of control congress with an overly compliant central bank and a slow growing economy that has been ravaged by an extreme response to a pandemic? You wind up exactly where we are now. As Michael explains, today's economic foundation is built upon sand or perhaps even a sink-hole. Eventually it's got to crumble and that's why you need to protect yourself now.

Recently, the nickel and base metals markets have been on fire. Worldwide stainless-steel demand (of which nickel is an integral component) increases at a steady 5% annually, but the big story is booming EV (electric vehicle) demand. Recently Elon Musk made clear his intent to utilize nickel as a substitute for cobalt in EV batteries, provided that there is a reliable supply of carbon-neutral, energy efficient metal. That’s where FPX (sponsor) comes in. The Baptiste deposit’s nickel metallurgy means there's no smelting necessary, leading to lower costs and greater environmental friendliness. Nickel is trading around $8.84 per pound, just over its historic $8 average. Copper recently broke $4 per pound and base metals have rapidly appreciated. With nickel demand ready to take off, looming supply deficits and a lack of new world-class projects, there’s a compelling case for vastly higher prices. The bill for decades of sector underinvestment has now come due.

CEO Martin Turenne explains why the British Columbia Baptiste deposit is undervalued relative to peers and FPX’s PEA supports that point. Its Van target is close by and it has a bigger surface footprint and larger, higher metal grades than Baptiste. FPX is trading at just 5% of the project’s estimated $1.7 billion value The market has yet to factor Van into FPX’s valuation.

Owning over 20% of the company, management’s interests are closely aligned with those of shareholders. As a CPA, Martin has kept a very tight rein on FPX’s finances; dilution has been kept to a minimum.

With approaching future supply issues, the apparent beginning of a new commodity super-cycle and at least one or more world-class projects, FPX is uniquely situated to cash in on Elon Musk’s demand for carbon-neutral nickel.

Why did they do impeachment 2.0? Are they deliberately fanning the flames of rebellion? Is this just a case of creating a phony external threat in hopes of unifying the country? If so, it’s been a Big fail! This form of manipulated unity is over. It’s pure deflection to use resentment from the left towards a portion of the population to somehow bring the people together. Trump turned resentment politics in on itself and made the ruling class the target of citizen anger. And this has led them to failure. How do they explain that Trump’s support is now stronger than ever.

Next gun control is back on the left’s agenda, which is of course doomed to failure. More people than ever have been lining up to purchase firearms. Sales are through the roof.

Fellow survivor Rob Kirby joined me for a talk about the current financial woes. The dollar has already used up 8 of its 9 lives and has done so recklessly. When we speak of the demise of the dollar, we’re in a crypto-currency contagion. It looks bubblicious. To Rob’s eyes cryptos are doing exactly what gold and silver have not been allowed to do. We’re experiencing hyper-inflation in cryptos, stocks and real estate. However, Rob is skeptical of the party continuing in the real estate sector. As economic conditions continue to worsen, with half the population not working and not earning, residential will wind up suffering the same way that commercial has collapsed. Mortgage rates can’t go any lower. Banks will not continue to extend credit should real estate prices move any higher and will tighten lending standards, thus shrinking the eligible pool of borrowers and purchasers. Anti-dollar financial assets will continue to increase. Crypto especially looks good. The long arm of the powers that be have so suppressed physical bullion that it’s becoming increasingly scarce and is becoming unobtainium.

Options for getting out of Dodge. Uruguary is the best choice of a lot of bad choices. Doug has visited over 155 countries and has lived in 10. The entire world is heading in an anti-freedom direction. People eventually vote with their feet. See Rhodesia before the fall. Panama is another possible choice. It’s a developing country with improving infrastructure. Roads and sidewalks will improve over time. Doug believes that you need to divorce yourself from the political system. It’s all lies. Sociopaths and criminals, but slick ones at that, are running the show. 

According to Doug C-vid is one of the great scandals and scams of all time. It’s a serious virus but it ain’t the plague. People’s response to Covid is indicative of their attitude towards life. Time to start living again and stop worrying. For people under 60 there’s little danger and for people under 30, virtually no risk. Doug observes that mask mandates are completely absurd. Perhaps even more indicative, it appears that Influenza has disappeared. Always remember, you can’t believe anything you hear from the media. It has corrupted science and will cause widespread disbelief in science as well as important studies and meta-studies.


What will come next? International travel is dead. It’s like trying to leave Saigon on the last helicopter after the Fall. The leaders are happy with the current state of affairs. In the year 2030 you’ll have nothing and you’ll be happy. All you can do is insulate ourselves. Try to be as wealthy as you can and hide.
