Hillary Clinton announces her candidacy and Comrade di Blasio refuses to endorse her, what's going on here? Marco Rubio has announced his candidacy, is he running for VP? New York City's pension funds have been looted of $2.5 billion over the past decade, has anyone been watching the store? And what about common core, is it rotten to the core? Gold is back to down just under $1200, do you smell manipulation? I sure do.

Here’s one for the “seriously, you’re surprised?” file: China pegs its currency, the yuan, to the dollar, the dollar soars, taking the yuan with it…and fewer foreigners buy suddenly-much-more-expensive Chinese products. Duh.


China’s Export Engine Loses Steam, Adding to Growth Pressure


China’s exports "unexpectedly" slumped last month, eroding the outlook for one of the economy’s better performing areas in recent months.

Overseas shipments fell 14.6 percent in March from a year earlier in yuan value, the customs administration said in Beijing on Monday. That compared with the median estimate for an 8.2 percent rise in a Bloomberg News survey of analysts. Imports slid 12.3 percent, leaving a trade surplus of 18.16 billion yuan ($3 billion).


The export declines come as China grapples with overcapacity and a property slump. The country’s central bank has relaxed rules on home purchasing, cut interest rates twice and reduced the ratio of reserves banks are required to set aside in the past six months, with economists forecasting further stimulus.


“Consumption is weak, investment is decelerating, and now exports have come in as weaker-than-expected,” said Liu Xuezhi, an economist with Bank of Communications Co. in Shanghai. “Downward pressure on economic growth is increasing, making it more urgent for the government to start rolling out more pro-growth policies.” All thanks to the Dollar-peg according to John and FSN and you know what's going to happen next, broken Dollar-peg and more QE.

Eric Peters believes that the government will soon be using technology to limit your speed. Is it possible? Through GPS and 4G LTE it is not only possible, but the automakers will allow it to happen. Ford is at the cutting edge now. So the next time your speedometer hits 80 on the freeway, enjoy the ride, because you may be driving on borrowed time.

The world of Washington is revolving circle of false promises and misconceptions. There are fewer leaders every term that stand up for the people.


The people deserve leaders who will be direct with where they stand on issues and what they plan to do. After that, the leaders must be accountable to their promises.  We need to hold these officers to the notion of being direct, honest and accountable to the people for their promises.” Isn’t it time for a change?


Alexander Meluskey is running for the United Sates Senate in Arizona because as a citizen legislator, he is gravely concerned with the lack of direction, lack of principles and lack of citizen representation in the halls of government.

The stats just keep getting stranger and, if you’re a policymaker or an investor, scarier. According to a (now widely publicized) McKinsey & Co study, instead of deleveraging after the debt-induced crisis of 2008-2009, the world borrowed another $57 trillion. And virtually everyone has been expanding their money supply aggressively. 


Conventional economic theory says that double-digit growth in debt and money creation should produce a boom, and that today our biggest problem should be too many people getting big raises at work. Yet that’s hasn't been the case at all.

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.

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. 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.

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.
