David Erfle's Junior Miner Junky has compiled an enviable record picking junior gold and silver mining stocks that have substantially appreciated. David says now's the time to start cashing in on the gold/silver bull market that's been underway for a while, but now should be kicking into high gear. Precious metals and miners got creamed during the March crash (along with everything else), but since then they've not only recovered, but have gone back to prior levels, with some stocks putting in new 52 week highs. But you didn't miss the rally, for the best is yet to arrive. Following David's Top Ten List could help you cash-in on what's to come.

It’s hard to believe that in less than 1 year Osino Resources stock price has tripled. Like most stocks Osino took a hit in March, but rapidly rebounded, recently hitting a new 52 week intra-day high of $1.20(CAD). And it’s no accident. CEO and Founder Heye Daun started two successful companies before Osino that were eventually sold-off for major gains. It looks like the third time will truly be the charm. So far, Osino has had one successful drill hole after another. This year it has embarked upon an ambitious 20,000 meter drill program, of which 10 percent has been completed. There’s been a slight delay due to the Covid 19 pandemic, but Namibia has reopened for business and it should be smooth sailing ahead. Best of all, Heye has the cash to get it done. Fortuitously, the Company did a major capital raise in January, before the pandemic. It now has enough cash for two years of operations. Look forward to a maiden resource in sometime during the first half of 2021. (Disclosure: Shareholder and FSN Sponsor). With everything it has going for it, no doubt more big gains are ahead.

Well at least the riots are over, for now. Defund the police seems like a truly insane idea, unless you're a progressive, then it makes total sense. Even if someone wanted to solve the underlying economic problems, it can't be done, we're too far gone. But at least we can wear our masks and avoid the Coronavirus. Oh wait, that's over too, if it's safe enough to publicly protest and riot then surely it's okay to open one's business back up and get this economy started again. That's already happening based upon the magnificent job numbers. Nothing to see here folks.

Vince was born on a cotton plantation in Haywood County in West Tennessee to parents who, at the time, were sharecroppers. Through hard work and faith in Jesus Christ, his father prospered in the insurance industry, pulling himself and his seven siblings out of poverty and into the middle class. The Ellison Family gospel singing group was formed when Vince was in grade school. The group continued performing through his college years with broad exposure in the Black Church and gospel music community. Through his experiences in gospel music, Vince gained intimate knowledge of the inner workings and failings of many of the Black Ministers in the Black Church.
Vince studied academically at Memphis State University; however, he received a real-world education while working as a correctional officer at a maximum-security prison in South Carolina. Vince later worked in the non-profit arena with many African American civic organizations. He experienced the underworld of politics in 2000 after becoming the Republican nominee in the 6th Congressional District of South Carolina.
These many life experiences have given Vince a unique insight. From this vantage point, he has been able to recognize, dissect, expose, and answer many of the questions regarding race, religion, and politics that have dogged America for years. His books, blogs, interviews, and podcasts share required knowledge for all Americans who desire understanding, reconciliation, and freedom.

Small business is tanking in Canada. 45% of the population is on some form of government aid. Too many people have no chance of going back to work. The government appears powerless to do anything about it. Of course our neighbor to the North is dependent upon the US economy, or what's left of it. The civil unrest will also have an effect upon the Canadian economy. Perhaps there are countervailing forces in effect, for example the coming brain drain from Hong Kong and China. Lot's of things at work. We can only hope the system will cleansed and we can eventually get back to work.

Kelly Sadler, is the former Special Assistant to President Donald J. Trump and Communications Director at America First Action.

Voters in nine battleground states trust President Trump more than presumed Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden to hold China accountable for the coronavirus crisis, and they overwhelmingly support Republicans’ proposal to shield small businesses from lawsuits related to the pandemic, according to a poll obtained exclusively by The Washington Times.

As the president weighs sanctions against Beijing this week for its crackdown on Hong Kong, the survey for America First Policies found that 57% of voters in those key swing states also favor punishing Chinafor its role in the coronavirus outbreak, which has killed 100,000 Americans and battered the U.S. economy. The nonprofit group promotes policies aligned with Mr. Trump’s agenda and is affiliated with the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action.

Voters gave Mr. Trump a 17-point advantage over the former vice president, 50% to 33%, on being better able to stand up to China and hold it accountable for spreading the virus. Three-fourths of voters have a negative view of China.

Since the COVID-19 crisis began, we've seen unprecedented government coercion. State and local governments have ordered everyone to stay home and have shut down businesses, schools, and churches. The federal government has sent debt to record heights with its spending. What's missing here? Cooperation.

John Wisniewski served in the New Jersey State Assembly from 1996-2018. He was a Democratic Party candidate for governor in 2017 and led the investigation into the Bridgegate scandal in which aides to then Governor Chris Christie closed several lanes of the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, NJ in retaliation for the mayor's refusal to endorse the governor for reelection.

He completely disagrees with The Supreme Court's recent Bridgegate ruling could be the opening to overturn former Trump aide Michael Flynn's corruption case and, in the view of the man who led the Bridgegate investigation, open the door for more legalized corruption. 

"What the Bridgegate ruling makes clear is that anti-corruption laws no longer function," says former NJ State Assemblyman and attorney John Wisniewski ."In short it says corruption is not corruption if nothing material is exchanged in return." Which is exactly the legal rationale used to clear Senator Menendez of corruption charges. What's good for the red elephant isn't always good for the blue donkey. 

Lawyers for the president are already talking about how the Bridgegate ruling can and should exonerate Flynn. Wisniewski believes that conservative and liberal leaning justices appear united in the belief that the courts should no longer be in the business of holding government officials to account for violating the public trust. 

So how could the Bridgegate case and the Flynn case mean Michael Flynn, and future administration officials, can operate with impunity?

John and I had been warning you for years that this moment was coming. We take zero pleasure in being right. Our only purpose was to help you perceive what was really taking place all around you. The riots and the pandemic may end shortly, but the damage will be felt for years, if not decades. But there's more downside on the way, remember, bad things come in threes. Whether that's a killer hurricane season or other natural disasters or perhaps a war, we're not willing to hazard a guess. Only an admonition that no matter what, you need to be prepared.

Retired critical care physician Dr. Ted Noel again blows the lid off the Covid 19 lock down scam. If you’re under 60 with no major health problems, you have very little chance of getting. If you’ve got major health issues, or co-morbidities then be very careful to avoid exposure. Finally, don’t worry much about social distancing. Go outside as sunlight is the best disinfectant and staying inside could be a death sentence. There is actually very little if any chance of infectiion from outdoor contact. Medically proven. Also, Hydroxychlorquin is effective as a propholaxsis and is an effective treatment in the early stages of Covid 19 infection.

Now that businesses across America are starting to cautiously reopen after the COVID-19 outbreak, customers are starting to see “COVID surcharges” on their bills.

For example, a Texas hair salon is adding a $3 “sanitation charge” to each receipt. A Florida dentist is charging $10 per visit for personal protective equipment. And a Missouri restaurant implemented a 5% surcharge due to rising food prices.Many customers are angry about the changes. The businesses that have enacted them, on the other hand, view the added fees as essential ways to offset their increased costs and to compensate for revenue lost during the lockdown. Interestingly, the aforementioned Missouri restaurant (Kiko Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Lounge) removed the surcharge after customers complained. It also raised menu prices. The owner, Billy Yuzar, told, “We were hoping to adjust the charge weekly based on the prices we get from our suppliers instead of raising all of our prices across the board on our menu … We can take the harassment on our social media, but when they start being ugly to our employees here, it really bothers us. This is why we decided to just eat the cost of printing new menu[s] and adjust it weekly.”

Other types of surcharges

It’s a subtle psychological distinction, but customers don’t like feeling nickeled and dimed. There was an outcry several years ago when some restaurants began tacking employee health insurance surcharges onto diners’ tabs. Worse yet, a civil grand jury in San Francisco found many restaurants kept the money for themselves. In 46 states, it is legal for businesses to charge customers extra just for using a credit card. Merchants should tread very carefully – 78% of credit cardholders believe it’s unfair to charge a customer an extra fee based on the way he or she chooses to pay, according to a recent survey commissioned by American Express. And they’re voting with their wallets. Some 86% of respondents told Amex that if a business they frequently patronize were to start surcharging, they would likely start shopping somewhere else.Even the long-established practice of tipping leaves a bad taste in some customers’ mouths. A 2018 survey found millennials were the worst tippers, yet they were much more likely than older generations to express a preference for higher prices instead of tipping.But many restaurants that tried that model had to revert back to the old way of doing things after customers and employees rebelled. Americans don’t like being told what to do – as a society, we greatly value freedom, and that includes the freedom to pay and tip as we wish.Some 86% of respondents told Amex that if a business they frequently patronize were to start surcharging, they would likely start shopping somewhere else.

Inflation is accepted, surcharges are not

While few, if any, customers would be enthusiastic about paying more for any reason, cost increases seem to feel especially egregious when they’re itemized. They’re hard to miss when they’re right there on the receipt in black and white. Over time, higher prices are seen as a cost of doing business. You may not be excited about paying $3 more for a haircut, but I think most people are realistic about the fact that things cost more over time, and prices can’t stay the same forever.I suspect a lot of consumers wouldn’t even notice if prices went up over time. Do you know exactly how much your last dentist visit cost? Can you accurately recite the precise prices of eggs, milk and meat over the past three years?

Surcharges shouldn’t be the solution for struggling businesses

To me, surcharging is more of a public relations issue than an economic one. It’s a bad look. Seven out of every 10 customers say a surcharge makes them feel like the merchant does not appreciate their business, according to the American Express survey.Plus, it’s an especially ironic time to experiment with a surcharge on credit cards, because the coronavirus has people very concerned about handling bills and coins. Amex found cash usage has fallen 16% during the pandemic, and 58% of consumers who made contactless payments reported gravitating to this technology because of virus concerns.Sadly, many small businesses are really struggling. I don’t want to minimize that fact. But I don’t think surcharges are the way out. Whether we’re talking COVID, health insurance or credit cards, trying to raise revenue with an itemized surcharge is a turn-off for customers, and any short-term benefit to the merchant is greatly outweighed by the longer-term consequences of offending the people who pay the bills.

Brian Boyd is a 30-plus year professional intelligence analyst and counter terrorism specialist. He is a former Green Beret, and was part of the leadership of the Joint Special Operations Command which oversees the Special Forces, Seal Team 6 and the Delta Force. He also served in the Departments of Defense, Justice & Treasury and regularly appears on radio and TV discussing intelligence matters.

Senator Rand Paul is calling for an investigation into the handling of the Michael Flynn case and to what extent then President Obama and Vice President Biden were involved. Rand claims Biden was briefed on the investigation of Flynn's interaction before President Trump took office. 

"I certainly think there is more here than meets the eye," says Intelligence & Counter Terrorism expert and former Green Beret Brian Boyd (see short bio below). "I see this as a serious abuse of power. It's the kind of intrigue that I saw when I was involved in the intelligence community."

President Trump has framed the investigation as an ongoing attempt to undermine his presidency. And with former Vice President Joe Biden's as the presumptive Democratic nominee for president Trump is hoping to make this an issue of Biden's alleged involvement heading into the presidential election. 

To further complicate matters Attorney General William Barr this week issued an apparent rebuke of President Trump’s efforts and vague accusations of misconduct by former Obama administration officials all while lamenting Trump’s treatment by federal law enforcement officers during the wide-ranging Russia probe.

So who is right?
