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?

(3) US needs access to COVID medications not made by our enemies 

(4) Need to maintain security in the supply chain for Critical Technologies

WHAT IS THE INTERNATIONAL PRICING INDEX?

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.

U.S. health officials and drugmakers expect to start producing potential coronavirus vaccine doses by the end of the summer, a senior administration official said Monday.

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.”

A conservative journalist goes behind enemy lines to cover the 2020 Democratic primaries from the inside.
 

The 2020 Democratic primaries were some of the most extreme in the history of the United States. But the show isn't over yet. Socialism is still on the rise, and ideas that used to be considered crazy are now even more mainstream than they were before. 
 
In Red November, conservative journalist Joel Pollak tells the story of how the Democratic party got so extreme, and give a riveting account of life on the campaign trail. There are stories from the Democratic debates, interviews with candidates, and scuffles between journalists. 
 
Part travelogue, part satire, part memoir, Red November is a factual, yet humorous, look behind-the-scenes at the candidates, activists, and voters as Democrats choose who will take on the sacred task of removing Donald Trump -- "45," as he is known to his haters -- from the White House and ushering in a utopian age of "Medicare for All" and the "Green New Deal."

Seven Reasons Why Americans Aren't Fighting Back And Turning A Blind Eye To Their Country’s Destruction
 
Board Certified Forensic Psychiatrist, Carole Lieberman, M.D., M.P.H., says, “Our forefathers are turning over in their graves, as they watch the America they dreamed of, fought for, and shed blood to create, turn from ‘America The Beautiful’ into ‘America The Desecrated and Demolished!’”
 
Dr. Carole warns, “There will be a greater rise in suicides due to people seeing their world destroyed than there was from coronavirus because people don’t want to live in this ’new normal’ of seemingly unstoppable violence.” 
 

Seven Reasons Why Americans Aren't Fighting Back And Turning A Blind Eye To Their Country’s Destruction
 
1. Fear
Many Americans are understandably: afraid of being injured or killed if they physically or verbally confront violent individuals or mobs who-up to now-have been unstoppable, and afraid of seeming racist or politically incorrect if they speak out, because they aren’t aware BLM has been infiltrated by several radical groups whose aim is to create anarchy.
 
2, Disempowerment
When police are told to stand down-because of mayors and governors who think that not stopping anarchists will appease them and they’ll go quietly away-it emasculates and disempowers them. So, too, everyday citizens. After all, if anarchists can loot, destroy police cars and statues, and perpetrate violence - and the police run away with their tails between their legs. How can an everyday citizen feel strong enough to take on the mobs?
 
3. PTSD
The traumatic experiences of 2020 have caused many of us to develop PTSD. After 9/11, studies showed that people who watched TV images of the Twin Towers falling - again and again - developed PTSD, even though they were nowhere near NYC, DC or Pennsylvania. Many Americans have been similarly glued to TV news about coronavirus statistics and patients on ventilators. So, they developed PTSD, even if they don’t know anyone who got COVID-19. Indeed, it has triggered PTSD in people who have had it from 9/11, or from serving our country in the military. We are in shock. How did Norman Rockwell’s apple pie America turn into a war zone? 
 
4. Denial
Some people have buried their heads in the sand, after finding all of this too overwhelming, and have simply run off to the Hamptons or had parties, pretending that they were in no danger at all and that America wasn’t being turned into rubbish. 
 
5. Poor Education
While we were sleeping, college professors - even at fine universities - have been brainwashing our kids - rewriting history and teaching them to believe that socialism and communism are better than democracy and capitalism. These post-9/11 generations, raised by parents who suffer from PTSD from the terror attack, absorbed their parents’ sense of helplessness and now want government to feed and diaper them. Their education apparently also lacked reading assignments of Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm, or anything written by Ayn Rand. 
 
6. Disorientation
Studies show that when people are disoriented, they walk in a daze in circles. The events of 2020 - which could never have been imagined, except in dystopian novels or movies, have disoriented us. The disrespect and destruction of historical symbols: statues, our flag and national anthem, have left us in no-man’s land. This was foreshadowed by Orwell’s dystopian novel, 1984, in which the protagonist, Winston Smith, rewrites history at the Ministry of Truth. 
 
7. Self-Destructiveness
The painful incessant drumbeat of coronavirus, lockdowns, the 24/7 message: 
“We’re all gonna die!”, and increasingly divisive and aggressive politics, have made some of us self-destructive. Some have turned to alcohol or drugs, while others are unconsciously surrendering, allowing anarchists to do the deed for us. Some Americans are feeling like their death is imminent, so why fight it?
 
Three Ways To Restore Sanity and Save America
 
1. Call in the National Guard to support the police and put an immediate stop to the rioting, looting, statue toppling and home invasions.
 
2. Create more hotlines providing free or low-cost psychiatric treatment. 
 
3. Air more TV and radio programs dedicated to helping people with their mental health problems - and fewer programs that have gratuitous violence. This doesn’t mean cancel Paw-Patrol because one of the character is a police dog.

POLICE/HOMELESSNESS EXPERT: Community advocate and President of New York’s-Central Park South Civic Association, Michael Fischer, discusses the crisis-level homeless epidemic. The highest number since America’s Great Depression.

Murder, burglary and grand larceny auto crimes have spiked in New York City this past month compared to the same period last year, while rape, robbery and grand larceny crimes have declined, according to New York Police Department statistics.

There have been 38 murders over the last 28 days, twice as much as the same period last year, according to NYPD stats as of up to June 14. So far this year, there have been 159 murders, which is 25% higher than last year, the stats show.

This year's murder count is on par with New York's murder total five years ago and is well below the elevated murder totals of the decades before that, NYPD data shows.

Shooting incidents in 2020 are also up, with 394 happening to date, a 24% increase from the 317 shooting incidents at this point last year.

"The uptick in violence, I haven't seen anything this bad in a long time," said a law enforcement official. "This is the worst I've seen it in six or seven years."

How the #NeverTrump Right Tried – and Failed – to Take Down the President

In her explosive new book, DISLOYAL OPPOSITION: How the NeverTrump Right Tried - And Failed - To Take Down the President, author Julie Kelly takes on the NeverTrump movement in a damning exposé that reveals how these unhinged Beltway "conservatives" sold out rank-and-file Republicans and joined forces with the Democrats, the liberal media, and left-wing billionaires in a cynical effort to bring down the most conservative president since Reagan.

NeverTrumpers are not conservative or even Republicans, writes Kelly. In fact, NeverTrumpers are merely the Democrat Party's useful idiots, advancing each and every one of the Left's false narratives - from Russia-gate to racial politics - in their ploy to remove the president from office and restore themselves from the sidelines to a position of power. 
 
DISLOYAL OPPOSITION is a devastating warning about what is to come in the 2020 presidential election if the "traitorous" NeverTrump movement gets its way. "We are all Democrats now," one prominent NeverTrumper declared in February. Julie Kelly argues they should stay that way. 

NeverTrump has become what they claimed to despise about Donald Trump: petty, vengeful, bombastic, reactionary, and abusive. As a result, it is imperative that those associated with NeverTrump never hold a place of influence in the GOP again. 

Here are a few key points Julie Kelly writes about in DISLOYAL OPPOSITION:

  • Led by Bill Kristol, the founder of the now-defunct Weekly Standard, a cabal of one-time Republican Party influencers known as NeverTrump overpopulate cable news and mainstream media in an attempt to create a false impression that rank-and-file Republicans oppose the president. 
  • NeverTrump, acting as the Left's useful idiots, exploits every crisis, real and manufactured, as a rallying cry to remove the president from office.
  • NeverTrump celebrated the coronavirus outbreak, defended China's role in the crisis, and advocated for devastating economic lockdowns in the hope that the fallout from this global calamity will preclude Trump's re-election.
  • NeverTrump inflamed racial tensions in America by advancing the incredibly destructive false narrative that Trump and his supporters are "white nationalists" based on their views on illegal immigration. 
  • NeverTrump pundits and outlets were the first peddlers of the concocted Trump-Russia election collusion hoax.
  • When congressional Democrats followed up their failed collusion gambit with a preposterous impeachment case based on a phone call with the president of Ukraine, NeverTrump once again sided with Democrats to support Trump's ouster. 

"One thing is certain," says Julie Kelly of the coronavirus crisis, "NeverTrump will weaponize every aspect of the chaos, including the number of dead, against Trump. Of all the low points of NeverTrump's crusade against the president, it will be the lowest."

Jon Miltimore, managing editor for the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE.org), has done amazing work on explaining the numbers behind the Coronavirus disaster. Unfortunately the mainstream media hasn't bothered.

They're tied to the narrative that things are getting worse and worse. And that doesn't appear to be the truth. In fact, while confirmed cases may have greatly increased, hospitalizations and deaths have declined greatly. The science of keeping track of the virus has devolved into a political contest.

Hydroxychloroquine combined with zinc and azithromycin has been shown by the Henry Ford Health System in Michigan to reduce fatalities by over 70%. The media is telling you this and you should be wondering why. 

Get a dose of commonsense analysis here.

As a man with unprecedented access to the facts and a reporter who is one of the most feared journalists in Hollywood, investigative reporter Dylan Howard has cracked open scandals that have brought down the careers of Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Hulk Hogan, Paula Dean, and numerous others. 

We talked extensively about Ghislaine Maxwell, her late father Robert Maxwell and their connections with Epstein and various intelligence agencies. Will she suffer the same fate as Epstein or will she name names? Will the Deep State do what it does best and insure that the truth will never be disclosed? 

We also talked about Michael Jackson and his many skeletons lurking in closets all over. An interesting interview. 

Howard’s sense for news saw him rise to become the undisputed most powerful gossip editor in the world, publishing dozens of salacious tabloid magazines each week, including Us Weekly, The National Enquirer, Star, In Touch, Life & Style, RadarOnline.com, and more.

Chairman Newsom is selectively closing businesses but leaves his own business open. He’s banned singing in houses of worship. He said the people looting and rioting were expressing themselves and that’s okay, but heaven help a businessman trying to support his family by opening without government permission. A lot of people are in a state of disbelief. Criminals are allowed to run rampant and there’s no police to stop it. When will order be restored?

While the economy might look better while looking at the economic statistics. The employment report is better than expected. The number of people still receiving unemployment benefits, it’s over 31 million. A lot of companies laid off employees in March were laid off and are expecting to go back to work. And many of them will not be going back to work, perhaps as much as 40 percent. They’ll be transitioning from temporarily unemployed to permanently unemployed. This will probably lead to another market decline later in the year. Don’t be misled by rosy statistics.
