Professor Walter E. Block of Loyola University in New Orleans joined the show. We bumped into each other at FreedomFest. Prof. Block is nothing if not controversial. He's reviled by the left and has been the subject of numerous smears. He believes that homeless is caused, at least partly, by government policies of zoning, minimum wage and unionism. The solutions rest with the private sector as we see that government has been wholly ineffective in dealing with this phenomena. Prof. Block believes all that's required is that it be allowed to function. But we'll probably never find out, as government only gets bigger as a result of its failures.

Eddie says beware of Netflix and the Fangs. If you haven't taken profits already, then now might be a great time to do so. Rising rates will mean higher profits for financial companies. Once the trade war fears go away, the 10 year will break 3 percent and the US economy will stay strong. But time will tell, let's see what happens next.

John and I answer a number of your questions and then talk about the changing Commitment of Traders report. Usually the Speculators (hedge funds) are wrong and the Commercials (big banks) are right. If that's the case then it appears that the Commercials are less invested to the downside and the Specs are more committed to the downside. This could go on for a while. But it's looking better for the metals after the recent sell off.

Martin Armstrong joined us for a talk about what's happening in Italy and the EU. Martin believes that all the EU bureaucrats care about is keeping their jobs and collecting taxes. People in Italy used their homes as savings vehicles because until recently there were no real estate taxes and no inheritance levies. All that is changing and Martin says the people will reach a no mas moment. It's coming. Back in the US, it's Trump versus the Deep State and the World. Who's going to win that one? What's a Deep Stater to do?

There's a major problem in San Francisco and other cities. Homelessness is rampant and it's affecting the quality of life - big time. From human excrement to used syringe's, filth and chaos are reigning. And it's time to reign it all in, before it's too late. We talk also about the fall of Las Vegas. Again homeless, abject neglect and a feeling that they've given up. Vegas once a value travel destination, is now a nickel and dimer's paradise. They charge you for everything and give little back in return. And where's Q anon?

Jordan Roy Byrne has adjusted his forecast for precious metals. He believes that they’ll continue to be weak until the Fed starts cutting rates, which won’t be for a while. With the dollar headed higher, Jordan says there’s really nothing to move precious metals higher. Eventually they will take off, but not for now.

Seasonal factors along with a strong US Dollar have led to a drop in most commodities, including gold and silver. It’s frustrating for those who believe that precious metals are a hedge against chaos, but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before. We’re heading to the 4th quarter, traditionally the strongest time of the year for precious metals prices. 70 percent of the time, prices go higher. In addition, we answer Arno’s question as to what happens when a country disposes of their US Treasury holdings. What can we expect if this becomes a trend. It could lead to serious issues with the Dollar and the US>

Cigar Break Asset Management's Craig Baker isn't much of a cigar smoker. Rather the name was picked out by a computer. The company is a hedge fund that finances hard money loans, purchases auto loan paper and they finance handicap accessible vehicles. Default rates are low and Craig has been involved in these lines for many years so he understands the performance aspects of the portfolios. Therefore, the returns are high and delinquencies are low.

Dr. Joel Wade has written books and taught courses on finding happiness. Of course all happiness derived must come from within. But the external world has a part to play in your happiness too. All too often we focus on the things that we cannot control and this leads to unhappiness and dissatisfaction. Better to concentrate on what we can influence and spend less time thinking about the things we have no impact upon. Things like politics and the news are pretty much obstacles to happiness, at least part of the time anyway. Time to focus on the things that matter. In so many areas of our lives, life has never been better and it keeps on getting better all the time.

Joe isn’t someone I usually think of as a libertarian. But I think every American, no matter what their politics has a libertarian strain. While Joe doesn’t like the idea of hard drugs being legalized, especially because he doesn’t like the idea of having to pay for their health care or to subsidize their decline, he also sees the futility of prohibitions. In addition, he is extremely opposed to the left’s fascistic tendencies. So if it comes down to a choice between liberty and governmental control, Joe is always on the side of liberty.

Daniel McAdams is the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute. In that role they regularly review current news developments and comment accordingly. While many are excited by Trump's current supreme court nominee, the Institute takes a more worldly and grounded view. They're concerned about nominee Kavanaugh's ruling about mass data collection and his pro-state views. Where there's smoke...

The stock market hit its high in January of this year and doesn't seem able to budge. Millennials are near fully invested in this market and that can't be a good thing. At the same time gold is languishing, however the stocks are still performing well since February, with higher lows being made. Despite gold's current performance the GDX-J is still above its 200 day moving average. The GDX has performed similarly, but it's just below its 200 day moving average.

I published an article about privatizing border security and enforcement. The feedback has been amazing. So here we are again. Let's put a bounty on all illegals of $500-1000, with a bonus for felons and illegal multiple crossers. Coyotes are tops at $2500 per head. In no time at all, our southern border will be secure. 

Gorsuch was a more more pivotal and important pick than Kavanaugh will ever be. He took the swing out of Kennedy's swing vote. The past 19 5-4 SCOTUS decisions saw Kennedy side with the conservative block 100% of the time, including the pivotal immigrant ban case and the groundbreaking Janus v. AFSCME case. 

A little known factoid, Gorsuch was Justice Kennedy's law clerk. The two men have a very tight bond. Evidently, the presence of Gorsuch on the court led to a stiffening of Kennedy's conservative backbone. Was there a deal? We can only speculate and hope that in return for Gorsuch's elevation to the court, Kennedy agreed to return to his conservative roots for the remainder of his tenure. 

New York City is becoming the San Francisco of the East. Broken windows policing works in reverse as well. When government allows disorder and chaos to happen on its streets, with no fear of retribution, it will inevitably get more of it, as witnessed by the demise of these two once great cities.

Copper crashed to below $3 per pound. Is it manipulation or a sign that China and the global economy are at risk? Too early to tell, but interest rates are clearly rising and the could mean trouble ahead. Debt continues to pile up at record rates both here and abroad and no one seems concerned, until one day everyone will be. That’s the tipping point. And it’s certainly coming.

Another year and another bank stress test. Does it matter? Have banks found new and riskier forms of lending that the regulators can’t keep up with? We all know that derivatives keep increasing and getting more risky. While progress has been made in reigning in risky real estate loans, banks are again showing a tendency to lower lending standards. But it’s what we can’t see that could be disastrous. For now the problem is isolated to Deutsche Bank, but for how long?

Things are getting challenging at Tesla Motors. However, they did manage to produce over 5k cars last week, with the help of a temporary tent-covered production line. Can they keep it up? Does anyone really care anymore? Elan Musk has 9 lives, let's see what happens next. What is prime real estate? John tells you what he thinks and beware of REIT's. And finally, there's trouble brewing in DC, but when hasn't there been? Trump may wind up appointing 4-5 Supreme Court Justices. Will it lead to revolution or civil war?

Gerald is hopeful about Trump's overtures towards North Korea. There was never a point in going to war with the Hermit Kingdom. And the risks were huge. Gerald is concerned about Iran. Everything seems to be working against the Mullahs, hyper-inflation, a youthful population, deteriorating economics. There's no telling what will happen there. However, Trump managed to trick the war mongers on NK and he just might do the same here. Finally, Gerald is going to hold the Operation Peace Festival of Liberty Love Joy and Beauty later this year. It promises to be an amazing experience and we plan to join him there.
