Cyclical credit contraction. Stock market is vulernable to a downturn that no one sees coming. Going into the fall you can have a much more severe correction, especially the NY Market. Don’t use the Wuhan Flu to make any investing decisions, both long or short. The liquidity events could be very severe and substantial. Where we’re getting huge excesses in Silver, we’re getting very high excesses in the US Dollar’s decline. We’re in a very lengthy expansion and bull market in metals which will raise prices of majors, medium sized companies and explorers. When a discovery is made, you’re rapidly building an asset. But be prepared for the inevitable pullback, so take so money off the table and get ready for the next upside move.

When it comes to junior miners, nothing succeeds like success. While Marcio Fonseca was an executive at SilverCrest Mines, spin-off company SilverCrest Metals saw a 130-fold share price rise. Mining is in Marcio’s blood and he’s looking for an encore performance. In 2018 he founded and took public GR Silver Mining (sponsor).

By this time in 2021 he’s hoping to double or even triple GR’s reserves (from 40 million to as high as 120 million silver ounces). That’s quite an accomplishment in any market, but with silver recently vaulting through the key $25 per ounce mark, and well on its way to $30 and perhaps even higher, this could result in a veritable windfall for shareholders and management alike(Marcio and management have major skin in the game owning over 10%). The market seems to be catching on to Marcio as GR’s share price has recently hit new highs.  

Experience matters and Marcio has over 20 years of it in finance and all other phases of mining. His team is seasoned and well connected. Currently, First Majestic Silver is its largest shareholder. The Sprott Group also has expressed great confidence in the form of a large GR position as well. With all this going for it, GR Silver Mining has amazing future potential for outsized gains and major shareholder enrichment.

When the lead starts flying, you want a vehicle that can take a licking and keep on ticking, and that means the Tesla Pickup Truck. With bullet-proof glass, a solid stainless steel body, this baby will soon be battle tested on the streets of Portland and Seattle. Bad guys better watch out, because this truck isn't stopping for anyone or anything. We also discussed the fact that tomorrow's wealth will be measured in gold, silver, guns & ammo and charged batteries.

At this point it is quite clear to all rational beings that Covid 19 isn't a serious threat to 95 plus percent of the population. Oh wait, the media has helped unleash a fear pandemic upon the populace. If you ask the average millennial what their chances of dying from Covid 19 were, their answer would be somewhere between 90 to 100 percent. Why is that? How can the American Public be so misinformed? Perhaps the dumbing down of America might have something to do with. Ya think?

A shocking exposé of the Bill Clinton pardons and commutations issued after Hillary Clinton made it known she was running for the US Senate.

Bill Clinton’s abrupt departure from long-standing precedent was an astonishing abuse of the Justice Department processes and underscored the shady wheeling and dealing that was common in the Clinton orbit. Bill, Hillary, and brothers Roger Clinton, Hugh Rodham, and Tony Rodham all profited financially or politically from hustling dozens of pardons to some of history’s most undeserving recipients. These ranged from worldwide pariah Marc Rich, to a cocaine trafficking kingpin, to murderous terrorists who hadn’t even requested executive clemency.

A third of the final-day pardons bypassed Justice Department review and went straight to Bill for approval. Dozens of recipients hadn’t even filed a petition. In the final hours of Bill Clinton’s last day in office, the pardon attorney was frantically preparing paperwork for recipients whose names were misspelled or whose addresses were unknown. It was a free-for-all.

The brothers were paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to privately lobby Bill for pardons, some of which never materialized. But the brothers were still paid. Hillary collected political and financial IOUs she later cashed in when she sought political office. For most of his presidency, Bill was one of the stingiest presidents of all time when it came to the awarding official forgiveness to felons, but the pardon floodgates opened when Hillary began her run for the US Senate.

It was the selling of pardons for money and influence that launched the Clintons’ nearly two-decade pay-for-play scheme—a scheme that not only amassed billions of dollars for the Clinton Foundation and hundreds of millions of dollars for the Clintons, but also catapulted Hillary into a presidential front-runner. Pardongate reveals details of the Clinton machine that will leave even the most informed citizens appalled.

"I promised then that we would restore City Hall Park to the beauty that it had in the 19th century, so that it could symbolize the regeneration, the rebirth, the reinvention of the city of New York," Giuliani said, calling it a "a final gift from the 20th century to New Yorkers of the 21st." Now, garbage and filth are spread out everywhere, along with posters of George Floyd and BLM graffiti. The gift has been rejected by the radicals and racists who have taken over New York and hate beauty. The sidewalks have been defaced, everything is covered in graffiti, and the sacred ground over which the grass lies is littered with tents, sleeping bags, and soiled with worse things by Occupy City Hall. The walls of the beautiful Surrogate's Courthouse's building, a Beaux Arts confection inspired by the Paris Opera, have been covered in hateful Black Lives Matter slogans, including "Kill Pigs," and if you stop by at the right time, you can see a dummy in a police uniform and a pig mask being hung.

Right now Greg Crowe and SilverOne Resources (sponsor) are sitting pretty. Silver has rocketed back from its sub $12 March low, to a close last Friday of $24.47. The company's recently completed over-subscribed financing has left it with a large cash position (C$13-$14mm). It's starting the process of updating its 43-101 resource estimate and is moving past its Covid induced delay. However, it was able to keep working on its Arizona-based Silver Phoenix project, site of an amazing find, a 417 pound sample containing 70% silver. Its Cherokee project is also moving forward, with people getting ready to get back to work. With all this going on, it probably won't be long before SilverOne achieves its goal of becoming a premiere silver-focused exploration and development company.

In this interview, co-hosted by Kerry Lutz of the Financial Survival Network and Bill Powers of Mining Stock Education, Auryn Resources’ executive chairman Ivan Bebek explains the transformative merger with Eastmain Resources.  This merger was announced on July 29th and will result in a new company Fury Gold Mines.  Fury Gold Mines will seek to advance its several gold projects with initial emphasis given to Eastmain’s Eau Claire high-grade gold project.  The stated goal is to have Fury Gold develop into a Canada-focused, growth-oriented producer.  As part of this transaction, Auryn will spin-out its Peruvian assets into two separate companies. One company will hold the Sombrero copper projects while the other will hold the Curibaya silver and gold projects.  Regarding the three companies resulting from this transaction, Ivan shared: “we want to deliver $10-20 share prices per asset [company].”

Ivan also introduced the incoming CEO of Fury Gold Mines, Michael Timmins, a seasoned executive who's built mines in a number of jurisdictions and spent 11 years with Agnico Eagle. It seems to be a match made in heaven and we're forward to more exciting developments from our soon to be former sponsor Auryn Resources.

In the January 28, 2020 edition of the Trends Journal, Gerald explains exactly what’s going on. It’s been a boon for CNN and MSNBC. The Media has hyped the pandemic to increase their failing ratings. CNN ratings are up 128% since they unleashed the pandemic. Where’s the DOJ? The list of criminals going unprosecuted is shocking.

Gerald had a July 4th rally in Kingston, NY. He called out Cuomo to try and stop it. The presstitutes bow down to #KillerCuomo. It’s bigger than NY, bigger than the USA, it’s global. Italy shutdown first. It’s all over the world. Australia had 176 deaths and shut down again. We are in an economic collapse unequaled in history. What’s going to happen to all those businesses and malls that rely upon people coming into the cities. Tourism is dead around the globe. We are in an unimaginable collapse around. Current war, trade war, WWII. Greatest Depression, WWIII.

There is hope on the horizon. Occupy Peace and Restore Freedom. A new third party. The platform is: 1. Anti-vax 2. Anti-tax, 3. Anti-mask.

How can people be so stupid to follow Hitler and they’re doing the same thing now? It’s so easy to take people to war. Korea, Vietnam, Iraq 1, Afghanistan, Iraq 2. People need to start taking responsibility for their government and their country. We have to fight for it. We have freaks destroying us. Time to rise up. Gutless cowards are already beyond redemption. People who believe in the Constitution need to rise up. It only takes 10 percent as in the Revolutionary War. The violence that’s facing us is daunting. It's no wonder why gold and silver prices are rapidly increasing. The whole world is going down. That’s why war is becoming inevitable.

We sat down with mining legend Ross Beaty. After 15 winning companies, why is he still at it? The simple reason, because it's fun. All the financial success, company building, creating opportunities for others and returning billions in profits to investors is okay, but in the end it all boils down to personal satisfaction and just plain fun. Perhaps Ross's idea of fun is a little more sublime than teens playing video games, obviously the stakes are higher and the rewards greater. But we came away believing that in the end Ross has achieved a certain level of personal satisfaction and enjoyment that has kept him going to the office all these years. 

Ross says that Equinox Gold will be his last venture. He started with another Equinox so it's fitting end to an incredible career. Upon retirement, he will dedicate himself to giving away his vast fortune to various causes, centered on ecological improvement and planet sustainability. We wonder if it will be more fun giving it away than it was making it in the first place. Time will tell.

According to Chris Gold will be in the 1967-2000 in the next week or so. Then a pause and pullback. Silver is leading the way. It will hit the $100 mark within a year. Silver will have the biggest financial gain. Next upside target is $44. Currently at a fibonacci number which is resistance. 

Bitcoin sold off with the crash and has now recovered and ready for a breakout. Chart is pointing to $14000, with quite a way to go on the upside. Especially now that the dollar is sliding. 

Stocks Bad news is good news for stocks. Chris thinks market is on its last leg. Everything right now is pointing to a decline. Less and less stocks are leading. The exect same set up as in February. When things are screaming this loud, you have to pay attention. Put call ratio in dangerous territory. Huge sidways move or a major bear market decline. If things get worse more stimulous and higher stocker. We’re at maximum risk. 

Dollar will be under pressure for a while. If there’s market panic, the dollar will rally. The same should happen, which will top off metals and miners. This time around there’s way more stimulous. 

Interest rates are low and locked in and no longer a free market. Not good the USD. Quite a bit of upside in bonds. There’s a limit to how much they can move under the circumstances. 

Crude is looking good as a short play. It’s losing momentum. It’s on the verge of a drop, on economic weakness. $44 and then a reversal to the downside. Let’s see if jobless claims rising. We have to wait for the pattern set up. 

Lot’s more in this extensive interview.

In a nation ruled by the people, the media and educators play a vital role. Voters need unbiased reporting. and the historic knowledge to place news into context.

That reality makes the leftist bias of most news, academic, and entertainment outlets deeply troubling. It’s not just bias that is disturbing. Major stories that do not fit in with progressive views are frequently ignored. 

Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s recent bizarre statement that blacks who vote Republican aren’t really black is a prime example. The media didn’t make much of the comment, despite the fact that both the historic and current record of the Democratic Party is hardly conducive to black interests. It’s hardly mentioned that it is the party that started a Civil War to protect slavery, then pursued segregation in the Reconstruction era. It is the party that idolized Margaret Sanger, who staunchly advocated abortion explicitly to reduce the number of black babies being born. Its “Great Society” economic policies, perhaps inadvertently, created economic conditions that delayed blacks from moving into the middle class. An educational system overwhelmingly dominated by Democrats refuses to teach those facts to students.

The bias makes reasonable debate politically risky; conservative viewpoints are inevitably portrayed as cruel. Consider the new third rail of political discourse: Those who criticize any spending program produced in the name of COVID, no matter how pointless, ineffective, excessive, corrupt, or even wholly ridiculous, will be castigated as heartless.

America urgently required quick, clean legislation that simply provided cash to those in dire need. But Democrats loaded Covid bills with items that benefited them politically. The media ignored the scandal, the same way they continue to ignore the inexcusable refusal of Nancy Pelosi to allow the House to return to work on a timely basis at a time of dire national need.

Consider the debate over how to distribute COVID relief funds. For America to return to economic normalcy, businesses need to be able to reopen and hire back employees. Federal legislation provides $600 weekly benefits to those who are out of work, in addition to state unemployment funds. It’s a generous benefit. Some out of work recipients are now making more than they did when they were working. 

But those benefits are unaffordable for the nation in the long run. Our grandchildren will be paying off that debt. Businesses that have been forced to close need to be able to reopen, rehire, and pay taxes. But attempts to funnel assistance to them is portrayed as tilting towards capitalists at the expense of workers—sheer nonsense. That logic doesn’t fit the progressive preconceptions of the media elites, so discussion of it is not widely covered.

President Trump campaigned in 2016 against China’s growing monopoly on vital industries and its increasing hostility. He was prophetic, but the media ignores that. In January of 2020, he shut down travel to the U.S. from China. Democrats portrayed him as “racist and xenophobic.”

In large, progressive-run cities, a failure to timely acknowledge the COVID threat led to disaster. New York became the worldwide epicenter of the disease, due to the refusal of the hard-left mayor and his clueless health commissioner to acknowledge the threat. On an almost a daily basis, the city’s mayor and his state’s governor absurdly blame the White House for the mistakes made by city hall and the governor’s mansion. The reality that Governor Cuomo’s deadly decision to place COVID patients in nursing home, causing vast numbers of needless deaths, receives little more than a shrug from the national media.

As the 2020 presidential campaign moves forward, Democrats nonsensically seek to place blame on the White House for the spread of COVID. They ignore explicit evidence that China maliciously, negligently, or both is solely responsible. They take that position because to not do so would be to admit that they have been wrong all along, and that candidate and then President Trump made the right call.

You will rarely see that analysis reported.

USA to Reject Certain Chinese Maritime Claims in South China Sea...

Navy warship challenges China in South China Sea...

U.S. warns citizens of heightened detention risks in China...

NATIONAL SECURITY EXPERT: Brig. Gen. Robert S. Spalding (USAF Ret.), is a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, focusing on U.S.-China relations, economic and national security, and the Asia-Pacific military balance. He is the author of the book, Stealth War: How China Took Over While America's Elite Slept.

The media often suggest that Russia poses the greatest threat to America's national security, but the real danger lies farther east. While those in power have been distracted and disorderly, China has waged a six-front war on America's economy, military, diplomacy, technology, education, and infrastructure--and they're winning. It's almost too late to undo the shocking, though nearly invisible, victories of the Chinese. 

In Stealth War, retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Spalding reveals China's motives and secret attacks on the West. Chronicling how our leaders have failed to protect us over recent decades, he provides shocking evidence of some of China's most brilliant ploys, including:

  *  Placing Confucius Institutes in universities across the United States that serve to monitor and control Chinese students on campus and spread communist narratives to unsuspecting American students.

  *  Offering enormous sums to American experts who create investment funds that funnel technology to China.

  *  Signing a thirty-year agreement with the US that allows China to share peaceful nuclear technology, ensuring that they have access to American nuclear know-how.

Spalding's concern isn't merely that America could lose its position on the world stage. More urgently, the Chinese Communist Party has a fundamental loathing of the legal protections America grants its people and seeks to create a world without those rights. 

Despite all the damage done so far, Spalding shows how it's still possible for the U.S. and the rest of the free world to combat--and win--China's stealth war.

CEO David Suda says Gold Terra is his opportunity of a lifetime. Starting out on the industry's financial side, David was surprised that weren't more high quality companies in the sector. He wanted more and in 2018 he found it, becoming the Company's CEO and director. Located in Canada's NWT, Gold Terra's Yellowknife project has outstanding infrastructure. Employees can enjoy breakfast at Tim Horton's, before setting off on the goal of expanding Gold Terra's 735,000 ounce resource. Drilling is set to resume very shortly (after a brief Covid enforced delay) and David's hopeful that a high grade deposit will soon be found. 

Gold Terra has had a recent string of good luck. It landed Detour Gold's Gerald Panneton as executive chairman; in the process he purchased 5 million shares. Panneton's record is impressive, having expanded Detour's resource from 1.5 million ounces to over 16 million, before selling it at an extremely attractive price. Gerald sees similar potential at Gold Terra. This month, the Company also raised C$7.13 million, so it's ready to drill 10,000 meters, with results expected to start coming in September. 

Best of all the Gold Terra's stock is trading at C$0.325, so clearly these developments have not been factored in. That's why we're pleased that Gold Terra is an FSN sponsor and see great things ahead.

Retail sales jumped 7.5% last month giving stores and restaurants a much needed boost. Although the increase came before the latest surge in coronavirus cases which prompted renewed shutdowns in several states. 

"There is no doubt about it - this is a complicated and quickly evolving retail environment and only the most nimble will survive, says Retail Expert and president of Naples-based Business Management Firm 'Third Eye Management' Karl Gibbons. 

Retail sales crashed in the spring as people stopped going out to eat and shop — especially for clothes — during the pandemic. But now things have changed for the better (see stats below). "This is a good sign, and as I see, it also is an opportunity to learn," says Gibbons.

  • Clothing and accessories stores: +105.1%
  • Electronics stores: +37.4%
  • Furniture stores: +32.5%
  • Sports, music and other hobby stores: +26.5%
  • Restaurants and bars: +20%
  • Department stores: +19.8%

So what can we expert this month and next? And what will retail businesses large and small need to do to get the momentum going?

Setting prices of critical technologies such as medications and diagnostic products to prices in other countries is flawed:

(1) These are Completely different consumer price indexes

(2) Medical product companies outside of US are frequently supported or owned by a foreign government

(3) Quality and regulatory standards in many countries are not adequate or at US standards, Inferior products are not what American’s deserve

(4) Price Indexing and Government pricing boards have been a disaster in many countries such as Germany hurting access, quality and reliability of supply chain

(5) US has seen such impacts on some product areas such as antibiotics because of Third Party Payer policies.

The reverse RobinHood effect is in full bloom. Goldman sees record trading profit and same with the other major banks. Liquidity and cheap money is what it all seems to be about. The big banks added $19 billion in bad debt write-offs. Take on as much debt as possible and hope the music doesn’t stop. There’s so much uncertainty and the system is coming apart at the seams. Where will the merry-go-round end? Duct tape economics is the rule of the day. John says let it die and let us be born again. The economy comes down to behavior of ordinary people interacting in the marketplace. It’s not going back to the way it was. 54% of Americans don’t have resources past 30 days. 

The full force of the Fed helped rescue markets reeling from the outbreak and government stay-at-home orders, which had ground economies to a halt around the world. Policy makers’ emergency measures sent companies racing to tap funding sources, and the biggest quarterly stock gains in more than two decades fueled demand for trading services.

The firm’s fixed-income trading revenue more than doubled to $4.24 billion, the highest in nine years, while the equity unit had its best showing in 11 years. The gains propelled revenue to the second-highest mark ever and net income to a slight surprise increase from a year earlier. Profit was $2.42 billion, or $6.26 a share, compared with analysts’ estimates for $3.95 per share.

The U.S. is aiming to deliver 300 million doses of a vaccine for Covid-19 by early 2021. The manufacturing process is already underway even though they aren’t sure which vaccine, if any, will work, a senior Trump administration official told reporters on a conference call Monday. He said they are already buying equipment, securing the manufacturing sites and, in some cases, acquiring the raw materials.

“Exactly when the vaccine materials will be in production and manufacturing? It’s probably four to six weeks away,” the official said on the call, which was hosted by the Department of Health and Human Services. “But we will be actively manufacturing by the end of the summer.”
