This book written Six Years in the Hanoi Hilton: An Extraordinary Story of Courage and Survival in Vietnam was written by Amy Shively Hawk, Captain Shively’s adopted daughter. It's a touching story of an American hero. It's one of ultimate inspiration: despite brutal treatment in prison, the contemplation of suicide, and his beloved girlfriend moving on back home, he somehow found hope – proving, in his words, that “Life is only what you make of it.”

Escaping prison and eventually reuniting with his long-lost love, Six Years in the Hanoi Hilton is an encouraging story of hope and love that America needs in this negative news cycle. It's a great story and one that really shows what people are capable of under the worst circumstances

10’s of thousands of stores closing, malls closing, it’s a nightmare. We have 3 times more stores than similar countries like Japan and France. Online is expanding by leaps and bounds. Brick and mortar companies are successfully expanding into online. It might look like they’re doing well, but this success is coming at a great cost. Staples and Macy’s and other brick and mortar retailers are doing major sales but losing money. They’re cannibalizing their own store sales. They don’t have a choice, but it’s killing them. A continuing catastrophe for retailers. This will cause commercial real estate to flounder as well. The developers will walk and send the keys off to the lender. Jingle mail on steroids. 

Howard then talks about healthcare reform, tax reform, the Trump Presidency and the economy at large.

Populism is sweeping the western world now. It’s getting so bad that the Pope is even speaking out against it. Bill Clinton is out there speaking out against it as well. He’s too busy reaping the rewards of globalism to care about main street. There’s nothing wrong with protectionism when it means protecting yourself. It’s a fundamental human right. During the Great Depression the US sealed off its border from the rest of the world. Why take in others when you can’t properly take care of your own population? And populism is getting ready to score major victories in the Netherlands and France, although that remains in doubt. All things considered, Populism prospects are looking pretty good!

A funny thing happened with the recent economic statistics. Inflation is going up. That wasn't supposed to happen, the world has been on a decade-long money printing debt binge and yet to most people the results have been benign. Prices have gone up some, but mostly stocks and real estate have seen the largest rise, and that's a good thing right? Well maybe now the chickens are coming home to roost. Worse comes to worse, they can always change the CPI just like they did to the Unemployment Rate. A little change in perception can work wonders.

We sat down with Gregory Crowe, CEO of Silver One, an FSN sponsor. They signed an option to acquire a very promising project from Silver Standard in Nevada. Known as the Candelaria Mine Project, it has been the site of substantial high grade silver production in the past and it is believed to still hold a substantial cache of the shiny metal. Under the terms of the option, Silver One has much to gain and very little to lose. 

We talked about other projects the company is working on. One thing about Greg, he's not sitting around waiting for things to happen. He's out there working to get things done. Hard to believe the company has only been public for 8 months. We're expecting big things in the near future.

Don Mazzella believes that Trumpcare is a first good step. The question is a good first step towards what? He thinks that Leader Paul Ryan is a good guy who has the interests of the country and the people at heart. We disagree, but time will show who is correct. The Trump Train has left the station and the Never Trumpers have clearly been left behind. Will they change their tune before it's too late?

Jason's YouTube channel was growing very nicely and then all of a sudden it wasn't. Subscribers were being involuntarily unsubscribed and viewer counts were being downgraded. Adding insult to injury, they decided not to pay him any longer for his monetized videos. If this was only an isolated case we could chalk it up to a technical glitch, but it's happening more and more to conservative and libertarian minded content producers. Twitter has become a virtual censorship orgy. Where will it stop? Perhaps with a Gofundme campaign and a class-action lawsuit would help.

Baby-boomers are ill prepared for their impending retirement. Therefore, it is urgent that they make major life-style changes as soon as possible. Aaron's upcoming book details a major life adjustment that will enable anyone to retire in comfort and happiness if they will take the plunge. However, time is running out and the sooner one makes the changes the better of they will be.

The financial system has become a paradise for scammers, fraudsters and banksters and no one wants to stop the party. Let the good times roll and when they stop, the government will be there to bail everyone out. The price you pay for living in a perfect world. How did we get here and how will we ever move one? Can technology save us or will it just make things inevitably worse? Danielle has her opinion and we have ours.

What if the Trump Bump runs into trouble with delays in getting his agenda through the Congress, will the market react negatively.

Craig Hemke a/k/a Turd Ferguson of joined us for a look at the latest state of the precious metals market. As usual the mining stocks broke down and gold/silver followed them. This has become a boring repetitious cycle that we've been seeing for years. The paper derivatives as usual are determining the physical price. But why would you expect anything else? It will continue on until it no longer works, it's the alchemy of synthetic gold.

Mark's co-host Scott Todd had a great job at a Fortune 300 company. Great pay, benefits and future. However, he saw the handwriting on the wall. He knew that his job was soon going to be outsourced to India. He met Mark and started buying land. When that fateful day finally arrived, he had replaced most of his income and was happy to take the golden handshake. Now he works a couple of hours per day from wherever he may be and he's never happier and he's never looked back. Sound impossible. Many of Mark's students have done the same and so can you.

March 15 is the Ides of March and the day the Debt Ceiling hits its limit. What will President Trump do? What will Congress do? What will investors do? What will you do? What should you do? Trump is a wild card, no pun intended. Precious metals seem to be under selling pressure presently but that could change very quickly as it has in the past. Don't second guess the market, it will show us the way. Keep your emotions out and keep your head.

Last week the state governors met with members of congress to discuss the fate of Obamacare. They were informed that the elimination of Obamacare would lead to disaster. States that participated in expanded Medicaid would lose billions in funding. Individuals who are receiving subsidies in the health insurance marketplace would wind up uninsured. Chaos would be the guaranteed result. In other words, the republican controlled congress putting its collective head together is unable to come up with anything better than Obamacare.

Was Trump really bugged? Odds are good he was. In fact we all are, Snowden told us that. So what else is new? Get used to it. And tell the Dems to stop bitching about the Russians. It's just another red herring.

By all rights the stock market advance should have come to its rightful conclusion. We're drowning in a sea of debt, both the debt we've acknowledged and the debt that we'll have to acknowledge when it comes due in the form of unfunded entitlements. It's just a matter of time. It looks like Trumphoria could be running out of steam. The only hope for the stock markets is if the Fed jumps in and starts buying stocks and at this point John believes anything is possible. Or perhaps a touch of hyperinflation, which has always sent the markets higher.

Arch Crawford joined us. With emotions running high in the political parties, a recent eclipse, the market is being tightly controlled. The Dow keeps going higher but the S&P isn't moving. What is going to happen to change things? Emotions are running high and yet it is having no effect on the market. Currencies are still unstable. Nothing is behaving as it they should be. It's all a mystery.

Another great month for stock markets with the Dow at new record levels. Metals did well as did the US Dollar. Oil was up, NatGas was down for the second month in a row. Interest rates were down slightly. Bitcoin was the stellar performer, with China's effort to cap the digital currency showing mixed results as it hit a new record. Uranium was doing well but wound up with a slight pull back. Copper is holding steady. Markets continue higher on Trumphoria.

Larry Schweikart—historian and bestselling author—was a member of the “Renegade Deplorables”, a group of volunteer analysts who supplied the Trump campaign with data the mainstream pollsters completely missed.Joel Pollak—senior editor-at-large for Breitbart News—was an eye-witness to the election from his unique position as the only conservative reporter aboard the Trump press plane in the final weeks of the campaign. Together they explain how Trump really won.
