The world is a complicated place. While things often seem to be happening independently of each other, they are actually  connections that we aren't aware of or that are deliberately hidden from us. Tesla was on its way to $1000 but stopped just short. Is the financial system about to collapse or is this the best economy ever? The stock market keeps rallying, as if there won't be anymore stock issued and you've got to get it while it's still available. Everything going on in our financial system is counter-intuited. Central banks keep pumping in the liquidity. The Fed's temporary lending programs seem to be on their way to permanency. As long as they're done under the guise of repo, then they'll never have to account for it. And it's happening over the world.

Record identity thefts and record frauds in 2019. Over 3.2 million victims reported their crimes to the FTC during the year. There's a rich history of fraudsters in the US. From snake oil salesmen to IRS scammers, nothing ever really changes. Technology has greatly expanded the means to defraud, but the mindset has always been present. According to Heather it's all about how we're wired. Once you become aware of your susceptibility, you can do something about it. Otherwise you're a sitting duck.

John Soforic learned about building wealth from a mentor. When his son Michael was in college, to help him avoid the pitfalls that he encountered, he wrote him a personal book about building wealth. That book became the basis for John's website and books, The Wealthy Gardener. Together we discuss the lessons of life including: The Law of Attraction, participation trophies and why you need to meditate. A very enlightening discussion.

Ed Karr, CEO of sponsor US Gold Corp joined us for an update. While the junior mining sector has been subdued as of late, Ed keeps pushing the company forward. US Gold Corp is moving rapidly ahead with its Copper King Project as well as its Keystone and Maggie Creek properties. Copper King is getting closer to a PFS and is well along in the permitting process. Keystone's recent drill holes showed strong anomalous gold and the odds of a major discovery there have increased greatly. And things are just getting started at the newly-acquired Maggie Creek project, which is located right in the middle of the world-famous Carlin Trend. With 3 projects and high expectations, it just a matter of time.

Kevin Bupp is the Founder & CEO of Sunrise Capital Investors, which invests in mobile home parks, apartments, offices, and single family homes all across the US. 

As Kevin relates the competition to purchase mobile home parks has increased greatly over the past few years. Kevin has come up on a new area to invest - parking lots. The annual returns average 6 - 7%. Cash flow increases over time with higher rates and inflation. And hopefully the lots will appreciate as well, so you're basically getting paid to wait. An interesting opportunity.

Buy the long bond as world central banks get ready to flood the system. China put $176 billion into their banking system Monday. While it didn’t help the Chinese market, it did help everywhere else, especially in the US. Brexit came and went and what’s next? The globalist elite is now liking Brexit as they use the next crisis to further cement their power. They’re not sweating yet as they’re playing a longer game. The next downturn will lead to greater world integration and perhaps more globalization.

Ignore all the posturing, all of the impeachment nonsense is coming to an end. While Romney may try to get Trump, it’s not going to work. Nice guys truly do finish last. He’s a dishonest, blow-dried slime according to Karen. His kids are knee-deep in the Ukranian corruption scandal. Politicians can’t pull it off any longer. The people have had enough. Given the next Trump term, hopefully there’s no going back.

Adam Andrzejewski of openthebooks.com has been exposing corruption around the country for years. Recently he requested a copy of California’s main checkbook and was greeted by a denial from the State Controller that the records of some 49 million bills didn’t exist. Therefore she was unable to comply. Adam isn’t taking it and has initiated a legal action to force the disclosure. Adam wants the state to join the transparency revolution.

Whether it’s the impeachment or just everyday government operation, it’s all about the big lie. But Trump has learned how to turn the lie against the Dems and the Deep State. It’s all part of the playbook. Bring in last minute witnesses to attack Kavanagh or Trump - during the election or his impeachment. He will be exonerated and acquitted, but the Democrats will say that the Senate was covering up. Will the RINO’s hold tight? Either way, it’s going to end shortly and not favorably to the President’s enemies.

A new book put out by a so-called economic and political expert espouses the view that narratives shape reality and perception, which to some extent is true. But listen to Charles Nenner and learn about cycles. Perhaps it's the cycle that shapes the narrative and reality. Right now the narrative is all about the Coronavirus and its impact upon the economy. But perhaps, if it wasn't the virus, it would have been something else. Charles is looking for stock markets to tank, $36 oil, higher dollar and higher treasuries. It may be a little to late for higher Vix, Charles already cashed out.

Buck Joffrey, doctor turned real estate investing expert is seeing lower rates which means lower capitalization rates and higher real estate prices. Currently the U.S. has the highest interest rates of it's peers. As a defensive maneuver, it's almost a necessity for the Fed to cut rates. But what affect will it have on the rest of the world? For now, money is flowing into the U.S. and that's working great.

Something bad was always going to happen. Whether this is it or not, we don’t yet know. This virus is contageous before the symptoms show up. With people traveling all over the world, there’s no way to contain it. It’s already having an impact. China is already on lockdown and there’s been rioting Hong Kong over plans to place victims in public housing. Closing down of international trade could result and that will cause central banks to cut rates.

Expect travel stocks to be hit. International trade will be inhibited and limited. Crista says we’ve been due for a correction and that the market could fall for any reason at all. Corrections are perfectly normal and happen regularly. Is now the time to be taking profits and putting stop loss orders in place? It’s difficult for individuals to properly implement them. They should be using specific dollar amounts and not percentages. Crista is also bullish on dividend stocks. She’s got a whole list paying 4-7%. And she passes along some great advice on when to sell them.

When it comes to understanding resources and resource stocks, Rick Rule truly has few peers. He's been in the game for over 4 decades and has profited accordingly. He's pretty certain that this new gold/resource bull market is for real. While it's encouraging that the noble metals (Platinum, Palladium & Rhodium) have been going like gangbusters, Rick says it's separate from what's going on in gold and silver. There's great opportunities out there for willing knowledgeable investors. The time is now.

Hong Kong and Tawain are out of the news. Now it’s all about the Coronavirus. China expert Dan Joseph believes that the Chinese Government is doing a much better job communicating with its people this time, after the SARS disaster last time. But restricting travel at  the height of the Chinese New Year is causing near panic in many places. We don’t yet know the full effects of the virus and it is spreading to other countries, including two cases in the US so far. 

We talked about the trade deal. Dan believes that it is a milestone in US-China relations and that the IP and forced technology issues are largely resolved. There’s still much to be done and the next phase has yet to begin, but these are hopeful signs.

Finally, things have calmed down in Hong Kong quite a bit since the Taiwanese elections, which led to the election of major anti-mainland leader. That’s taken the pressure off of Hong Kong, but localized demonstrations are continuing. More to come on this front.

Dudley Baker has been compiling his common stock warrant database for decades. He’s expanded his database to include Canadian and US issued warrants. The potential for profit has never been greater. Even during the depressed markets, the opportunity to profit. It’s all about market timing. Over the past 7 years it was very difficult to earn profits. There’s good reason to believe that that’s about to change. 

A few of Dudley’s favorites: Gran Columbia Gold ($3), Ross Beaty's Equinox Gold (shorter maturity than ideal), Kootenay Silver

FICO or credit scores are now at record highs. The question is why? After all debt is at record levels. It’s a combination of events. The Obama admin helped to artificially boost scores by implementing regulations. In addition, many people who were wiped out during the great recession have seen their scores increase and heal because they’ve been shut out of the credit markets. All-in-all, the trend is favorable and we haven’t any retracement yet, so it’s full steam ahead for the economy.

New guest Lawrence Lepard runs Equity Management Associates, LLC, which has focused on investing in precious metals since 2008. Larry looked at the world during that crisis period and believed that precious metals were the place to be. While nothing ever works out as we believe it will, Larry thinks the current environment will result in major advances in both precious metals and the mining stocks. So far, looking at what's happened in the past 6 months, he might very well be correct.

It's no secret that the precious metals markets have been in the dumps for the past 4 - 5 years. It was nearly impossible to raise capital and they were shunned by investors and lenders alike. Now things are looking up. The vibe at the Vancouver Resource Investor Conference was decidedly upbeat and positive. When will gold and silver move higher is the question. Probably sooner rather than later.

Otis Gold was moving fast, getting a major investment from Agnico Eagle and receiving a drill permit from the US Forest Service. Everything was looking up and then the unthinkable happened; an environmental group filed a lawsuit claiming their permit was improperly issued and all work on the Kilgore Project should be stopped. The stock promptly tanked and Otis was living in legal limbo. However, justice eventually prevailed, they won the case and now Otis's future is once again bright. New developments since their initial PEA have shown greater recoveries than initially expected and the price of gold has gone from 1300 to over 1500, raising their projected IRR to over 60%. And CEO Craig Lindsay believes the best is yet to come. They're looking at the next discoveries as the ultimate payoff. Had you taken action after our Otis Gold Webcast, you could have nearly doubled your money.

Its  Ecuador projects with their highly promising geological prospects show great potential. They've got two high powered joint ventures underway, with heavyweight partners Anglo American and BHP who are moving aggressively to bring the Tarqi and Pegasus projects to fruition. CEO Marshall Koval's 40 years of mining experience is well positioned to move the Company forward. Scott Hicks is excited to be part of the team and his diverse finance background has put him in the right place at the right time.

The insurance industry is the very definition of the word conservative. Change comes extremely slowly to this giant profitable segment of the economy. They’ve been slow to adapt to technology, with many of them still running their businesses on antiquated main-frame computers. Sean designed Kin Insurance from scratch. With direct sales and state of the art systems, Sean has cut costs by 50 percent and claims payouts are 15 percent under the industry average. All this while managing to insure properties in challenging, catastrophe prone markets. Not bad.

We had the honor of connecting with Dr. Steve Turley, a noted professor of Theology and Rhetoric and a YouTube sensation. Steve is incredibly optimistic about the emerging populist-nationalist movement that has been sweeping the world. He's incredibly well-read and has a historical insight that few possess. He traces our current cultural malaise to the Modernistic Movement which led many to believe that man is primarily an intellectual/rational creature, with no need for God or the spiritual world, only science. This has led to cultural Marxism with its nihilistic underpinning. Thus, we have experienced the decline of the family, religion and most societal institutions.

However according to Steve, that movement has run its course. People are rejecting the hopeless it fostered, in favor of a return to a more traditional populist society that believes in nations, communities and the ability of man to grow into an happy enlightened individual. Witness the election of Donald Trump, Brexit, Boris Johnson and too many other instances to list here. While the transition back is chaotic, in the end, there is no other way forward.
