Lockdowns spreading, people are back to hoarding toilet paper and bullets.

Landmark Danish study finds no significant effect for facemask wearers

Only minimal stimulus seems likely during the transition. (Funny how anything less than a trillion dollars seems minimal these days.)

Is another broad-based crash like March coming?

How do you prepare for something like that?

-- Equity put options – example of an S&P 500 put that more than doubled in March while the market when down 20%. 

-- Stop loss orders – though they don’t always work in flash crashes.

-- Go to cash now and book a month at the beach. 

-- Low-ball good until cancelled buy orders. (Examples of gold mining stocks that tripled from their March lows.)

Expect gold miners to report great earnings and massive cash flow in January and Feb, which will support their stock prices.

GR Silver Mining (sponsor) currently has 20 Geologists working round the clock to expand their already impressive resource. Four drills are turning and more are on the way. The Company is proof that the harder you work, the luckier you get. While building a connector road to an underground access tunnel, the team came across some interesting geological samples. Upon closer look, they found extensive mineralization that should substantially add to their NI 43-101 resource. Marcio and the team are more excited than ever, and he believes they’re on the cusp to achieving their 100+ million ounce goal. GR is extremely well-financed, with C$8 million in the bank, so there’s need to go back to the market for additional capital to continue their aggressive drill program. Which is why we’re extremely optimistic and currently acquiring shares.

Market Forecast for the remainder of 2020 and 2021. Volatility is the theme. There’s so much uncertaintly that we could go anywhere. Changing political directions mean it’s up in the air. There’s lots of pains in Blue States, small business, restaurants, etc. People are stocking up on swimming pools and RV’s. Services are getting slammed. Employees will have to retrain and reinvent.

Instability economic, political and geopolitical will be a major theme for the coming year. Without a political change we’d have less uncertainty. Change can freeze spending and investments. A recession could be triggered.

Inflation outlook with trillions being printed out of thin air. Low interst rates and flooding money, real estate home prices aren’t falling. The supply of resale homes is dropping and so is demand. There are indicators that inflation could be a growing factor. Not sky-rocketing yet.

Above everything else, just keep saving and saving. You might need the funds to live on or you’ll have a great opportunity when prices come down

Stock markets have been trading on hope and optimism. 40 years ago was a similar tumultuous period. The Iranian Revolution and the Russian invasion of Aghanhistan. It’s the 40 year cycle taking place. The 40 year cycle has repeated itself very closely. We had the March meltdown, the spike recovery, and then new lows. Very similar to 1980. Anohther intermediate peak in coming this month and continuing to swing, which will lead to another leg up peaking in May 2021. But there are down swings coming.

Gold/silver coming peak again in May 2021. We could see a bottom by the end of 2020. Gold will move up with the stock market and then an inflation driven peak. Gold below $1800 before the end of the year and silver could hit $19. The Dollar has been bottoming and could see an increase at the same time. And perhaps a settling down geo-politically could be around the corner.

US Dollar, a rebound through mid-December. March 2021 could see the Dollar bottom, perhaps near the 2018 low of 88 on the DXY. The dollar was fortelling a democrat in the Whitehouse. Eric mentioned that several months ago when we last spoke and appears to be correct.

Interest rates have apparently hit their lows in mid 2020. Eric had been calling this a while. And it appears we’re there now. The high should hold for a couple of years. Rates will be edging higher. Government spending is going to cause rates to rise or the Dollar standing could be injured.

John Paul Mendocha --- Turnaround Specialist, Serial Entrepreneur and Author of “Remote Work for a Better World”& “Most Businesses Fail in the First 5 Minutes: It Just Takes Them 3 to 5 Years to Realize It” 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced businesses to rethink their marketing plans, both now and into the future. The current pandemic has been a threat to the entire global economy and without a doubt; businesses took the biggest hit of all. 

While several brands already declared bankruptcy in the wake of eroding resources and dwindling assets, there are still many who would follow the same suit, provided the financial activities do not start the earliest. The post-lockdown era will see brands competing frantically for attention and eventually, survival and growth will depend on the strategies, proactive approaches, and certainly capital infusion. Where do they start? Do they all need a Turnaround?

  • What are the best ways to approach a turnaround post COVID-19?
  • Is reevaluating your brand the best strategy to take?
  • Is using Fear as a motivator a proper way to build a presence?
  • Final say: Shutdown or Turnaround? ---Which way makes more sense? 

John Paul Mendocha uses his expertise from his new book, “Remote Work for a Better World,” to share his tips on the best approach in the post COVID-19 era.

Sheriff Joe joined the army at age 18. He went to Korea, and upon returning he went on to become a cop in DC. Moving on to Las Vegas, he arrested Elvis in Las Vegas for doing 100 mph on a motorcycle. Then he moved on to work for the DEA and traveled the fighting the flow of drugs. He moved up the ladder going on to work with G. Gordon Liddy, where they shut down the Mexican Border to force cooperation in the war on drugs. He was quite unpopular with the Mexican government. His wife started blueberry pie diplomacy, feeding the Mexican AG a steady stream of her baked goods. He eventually wound up in Arizona and retired after 31 years. Quickly tiring of his new leisure life style, at 60 years old he ran and won for Maricopa County Sheriff . Was elected 6 times. Chain gangs, tent cities and pink underwear became his hallmark. He blew the whistle on illegal immigration and took it on directly,  arresting many thousands of illegal immigrants, making him a target of the administration. His phones were tapped and he became a target.  Eventually, he was convicted of contempt of court, but was pardoned by President Trump. Now, he's again retired, but he's not slowing down, even at 88 years of age.

At a recent major Chinese Communist Party meeting the   plan for world domination was spelled out in detail. China perceives an opportunity to become the world’s superpower and rule accordingly. Another reason why this election was so important. It’s either rule or be ruled. Will this result in Russia being driven more towards the West and away from China? China’s dam infrastructure in greatly imperiled. Most of China’s efforts are potentially damaging to West. You need to educate yourself and understand the magnitude of the threat. Chinese nationals are leaving the West and returning to China en masse. What is the significance of of that move? What's ahead for the world?

Should the country be locked down? Mass destruction of small businesses. Is it a deliberate crushing of the economy to implement the Great Reset. Socialism is collapsing. All their programs are unfunded and there’s no ability to fund them. Negative interests rates and mass monetization have failed. Accoding to Martin they’re looking at Communism 3.0. See Klaus Schwaab. They can’t sell bonds any more and they can’t fund pension. The only way out is to take everything. The biggest propaganda ever. At this point is this like the end of the Roman Republic. Just as they attacked Caesar for crossing the Rubicon. Fake news ruled in Rome as well. The job losses due to the pandemic have been legendary. In Germany you can’t even stay in a hotel. It’s Communism all the way down the line. Computer has been projecting no elections after 2024, down the line. All around the world. They’ll be suspending elections. Many businesses are just closing and not even bothering to file for bankruptcy, especially  if they’re debt-free. Florida has been hit the least. New York, Chicago, Philadelphia are ghost towns. 

Banks are cutting their debt to their small business clients. New York bankers are going to take a big hit. Big tech has been involved in this war on the people. If the Dems gain control they’re coming for your gold, silver and crypto. Any formal depository, safe deposit box will be subject seizure.

"Around the world, working women are facing brutally hard choices about whether to stay home with their children, if they haven’t already been laid off," says Laetitia Vancon New York Times.

As if working mothers did not have enough to worry about, experts are now sounding the alarm that progress toward gender equality may be the latest in a long list of casualties of the coronavirus pandemic.

Substantial research has shown that most professional gender gaps are in fact motherhood gaps: women without children are much closer to parity with men when it comes to salaries and promotions, but mothers pay a large career penalty.

Women tend to take on more of the burdens of caring for children and the family. To go to work, they need someone to help with that care. But fathers have been slow to change their behavior. And without subsidies, private child care can be prohibitively expensive.

Workplaces already tend to penalize women who choose to work fewer hours or need more flexibility, and that, too, is proving to be exacerbated in the pandemic.

“The bottom line is that based on decades of research we know that there was one institution that was effective at limiting gender inequality and encouraging women’s participation in the workplace, and it was early childhood education,” said Claudia Olivetti, an economist at Dartmouth College.

Now, the pandemic — and its hobbling of schools and child-care providers — is taking that away, too, piling pressure on working mothers, like me.

Around the world, working women are facing brutally hard choices about whether to stay home if they haven’t already been laid off. And the effect may be particularly severe in countries like the United States, where the pandemic is compounding inequalities that women already faced as a result of the lack of guaranteed paid maternity leave and affordable child care.

When discussing today’s precious metals market dive, noted investor Rick Rule says, “Volatility is part of dealing with investing. The volatility we’re seeing today is setting up the upcoming precious metals advance. Is it the vaccine or is there something else inovlved? It’s just part of the landscape. If you’re not psychologically prepared for these movements you need to get out of the market.” Rick’s got a hot list of 45 precious metals equities that he’s now considering for purchasie. He’s looking to sell a few dogs and buy the quality issues. Middle market companies generating substantial cash flow will lead thenext wave up. There’s a dearth of quality exploration issues. During the past decade, exploration has been nearly non-existent. Tier 1 deposits (5mm ounces of gold and 400k per year potential production) and Tier 2 (1-1.5 mm ounce resource 150k per year production) are going to sail higher. Institutional investors need to get into this market and understand the huge potential opportunity. Intelligently crafted mergers are starting to take place. For valuation purposed, P/E is pretty much irrelevant. P/NAV is where it’s at. Rick’s take on royalty companies, the larger ones are still going to do well because base metal producers will be selling their pm streams off. There will be huge transactions of this ilk. Hedge funds may very well become a driving factor in taking miners private. They’re sitting on funds that they either have to use or will have to return to investors. Pension funds are starting to call Rick. Suddenly there’s interest among the largest investors in the world considering putting money into the sector. And long suffering silver investors, take heart. Silver is next. Silver is substantially more volatile than gold. A cyclical decline in a secular bull market always hits silver harder than gold. First comes gold then comes silver, always in that order. Make sure you contact Ric by going to www.SprottUSA.com/rankings for a free resource stock portfolio evaluation.

Whatever happens next is great for gold, though the timing is tricky. If stocks tank when traders figure out that stimulus will be delayed, that might pull gold down. But the eventual resulting stimulus will send it through the roof.  NJ credit downgraded on big pension bond sale, Illinois tax measure failed, and that's pretty much it. Junk rating is coming.

Larry Klayman, has just written It Takes a Revolution: Forget the Scandal Industry! Larry founded and was chairman of the successful non-profit foundation Judicial Watch, and current chairman of Freedom Watch. 
 
In the book, Larry details how our executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government have become thoroughly corrupt and failed the citizenry.  

Imploring Americans to turn away from the “scandal industry” of the cable news networks, which enrich themselves by magnifying crises—if not creating mass panic to boost ratings and advertising dollars—and offering false hope to lure viewers that there will be justice to remedy government corruption, the author Larry Klayman, both the founder of Judicial Watch and now Freedom Watch, offers concrete solutions for creating a federal judiciary and instituting citizens’ grand juries. Quoting Founding Fathers like John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, Klayman explains above all that without ethics, morality, and religion, it will not matter how many times we change our forms of government or rules—there will be no lasting liberty.

This work is a call to arms during these times of crises, when government corruption has hit a “cancerous state.” The overriding message of It Takes a Revolution: Forget the Scandal Industry! is that Americans should turn off cable news, stop being entertained by it, get up off of the couch, and join the second American Revolution—albeit a peaceful and legal one—to restore the greatness of our nation in these trying and perilous times. Our continued existence hangs in the balance!

We’re going to be wishing we had listened to Andrew Yang. Money is nothing more than a trading coupon that people have belief or confidence in. The current monetary system can’t be received. Waves of inflation are coming. Humanity has rare periods of stability and they are inevitably interrupted by great waves of inflation.

A look at what’s happening to big cities after the pandemic. A look at postal change of address forms, it’s quite shocking.

Chicago’s change-of-address notices more than doubled over last year’s for the period from February 1 to August 1; New York City’s are up 490%; San Francisco’s up 180%; Los Angeles’s up 96%; Washington D.C.’s up 160%; Houston’s up 60%; and Philadelphia’s up 60%. 

Thomas Jefferson’s disdain for big cities and his agrarian vision for America was based partly on the danger of epidemics. He lived through a major one, yellow fever in 1793 that killed one in ten people in Philadelphia, then the nation’s capital. We’ll see if the cities have outlived their usefulness. Will people come back to Chicago, San Francisco, New York, etc. Will remote workers pack it in? 30% of San Francisco is vacant. Personal safety is a key reason why people are fleeing. People are moving to smaller communities and smaller cities are benefiting from the transition. Large cities will be going belly up. Living conditons are getting worse and worse. Even if they do get bailouts, will that have any lasting impact?  How will people ever return? 

What happens when tech starts contracting. 

Exit plan. Rent don’t own. Live away from the problem areas. Adjust to remote working. Look at what is happening. Resort areas are becoming very popular. Prices are going up. Much better quality of life. Jefferson would be retreating to the hills of Virginia.

With the election season winding down, it’s time to step away from the the deception, lies and noise to figure out what’s really going on. What’s is driving things? The math is the math. What we’ve always called it is the end of the great Keynesian Experiment. Servicing the debt can no longer be maintained by the central banks. With everything going on, we’re a runaway train heading down the track towards Deadman’s Curve. Does it really matter who’s president? Just the amount required to service the existing debt is over $1 trillion per year and rapidly going higher. The Fed is manipulating the markets as always. Powell is to announce that he will keep rates down until 2023 at least. And now the Fed is looking at yield control, cap interest rates because rates cannot be allowed to go higher. 

As a gold and silver investor you need to be buying the dips. If you’re still on the fence, wait till the yield control begins and then the fun will really begin. 

We've been in an intermediate metals downtrend since August. Just like last year. There's nervousness about gold today due to what happened 4 years ago. Negative nominal interest rates are extremely positive for gold ownership. Last time it happened was in the 1970’s. And remember where gold went then? 

Interest on all debt is going parabolic. We don’t know what point it will break, but it’s going break, of that we’re certain. It’s an absolute certainty. The solution is to keep buying bullion, mining stocks and get ready for the ride of our lives.

Polls tighten, raising odds of civil unrest:

--Trump drawing insanely large crowds in battleground states, dwarfing Biden’s audience;

-- Minority turnout is disappointing compared to probable Trump voters;

-- White House building big fence in anticipation, cops are on alert in big cities.

If stimulus is delayed through the holidays, mass bankruptcy and default in both private and public sectors. Malls, restaurant chains, airlines are all toast. Lockdown impoverished travel, government and so many millions. If they don’t money in a hurry, they are bankrupt. It would have been done if not for the election. It’s in each party’s interest to delay it for a while. Each month that goes by makes it less likely many of these companies will survive.

John provides residents of high density population areas comprehensive options to strategically relocate to a prepared retreat. One of the first thing that John recommends is reconnecting with relatives who live in remote areas. Or perhaps acquiring a vacation home away from urban areas. You’re not going to become an Army Ranger overnight. The key is to get away from people. Then you might be able to watch it pass. John will help find you a place within a tank of gas range. Logistics, setup and planning are key. You can’t count on the media to inform you of the impending social breakdown. Planning is key. You want to be around people who produce more than they consume. That’s why it’s important to stay away from large urban areas. The best place to escape to is one you can actually escape to. Low population density areas. 

  1. A plan to get out of town;
  2. A place to go;
  3. So prepared place to ride it out.
