Is John Rubino Buying Dogecoin?

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

John Rubino is back… The Great Dogecoin Scam, but Ethereum is the real deal. It’s the sign of a bubble when random assets blast off, which otherwise have no value. It’s just like Gamestop and NFT’s. It’s not much different from Bitcoin. Inflation in Iron Ore and Copper. Copper reaches record highs. Iron Ore on its way. Vanity Fair vax article masks forever. It’s just the right thing to do. The pro-lockdown side is starting to fracture. A significant segment doesn’t want to give up their lockdown lifestyle. Vaxx is going well, Covid rates are dropping almost everywhere but India… “To The Moon”, Literally: SpaceX Says It’ll Accept Dogecoin As Payment For Lunar Mission. Major Gasoline Pipeline Hack but don’t worry it’s coming back up slowly. People don’t yet fully grasp cyber terrorism risk. It’s actually driving up gasoline prices. What about hacking the banking system, or the power grid. We can’t really quantify the risk. It happens before anyone sees it coming. The stock market is super risky too. GOP Governors cutting off supplemental unemployment insurance to help with the emerging labor shortage. Chipolte embraces the fight for $15. CDC’s power to issue an eviction moratorium was struck down. Brooklyn Borough President and mayoral candidate Eric Adams, a former NYPD captain, imagine a dem running on a law and order platform, what’s the world coming to?

FinTech Being Taught at NJIT with Dr. Stephen Taylor

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Financial technology is all the rage these days. Dr. Stephen Taylor is head of the Fintech department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Fintech has become a buzz word lately, but it has become far more sweeping. It has effectively eliminated the back office of the entire finance industry. The technology is increasing at such a rate that it’s becoming difficult to know where it’s heading. Will there be a fully automated financial system with little or no human input? Dr. Taylor believes that there will still be a need for humans in the system, but perhaps not so much. Dr. Taylor’s goal is teaching his students programming so that they can create prototype systems and solve problems. Since 2008-09 Dr. Taylor believes that risk has gotten more spread out and distributed, which is a net positive. We also discussed the use to Fintech and the Flash Boys and got into a general discussion about where our finest minds are spending their careers. Interesting food for thought.

9M Silver Ounces Per Year Production Three Years from Now with Aurcana Silver CEO Kevin Drover

from Mining Stock Education

Aurcana Silver Corp. (TSXV:AUN  – OTC: AUNFF) has 100% ownership of the world’s highest-grade silver mine (P&P): the Revenue-Virginius mine in Ouray, Colorado, USA. This fully-permitted mine will also be one of the lowest-cost silver producers in the world at only US$8/oz Ag (AISC) after byproduct credits.  In this interview CEO Kevin Drover provides a construction update and production goals for the next three years.  Silver ore will be fed into the mill starting in about two months and the company will be cashflow positive shortly thereafter.  In the first full year of production Aurcana’s conservative estimate of after-tax cashflow is US$50M at $26/oz silver Kevin said.  However, he expects to beat that low estimate.  Aurcana is also moving the fully-permitted Shafter silver mine in Texas back towards production.  Thus, Kevin said in three years from now between the RV mine and the Shafter mine, Aurcana should be producing around nine million silver ounces per year as a mid-tier silver producer.

Kevin Drover has over 40 years of both domestic and international experience.  He was previously VP Worldwide Operations at Kinross Gold and possesses experience in all aspects of mining industry operations, process re-engineering, project development and corporate management.

Killing the Goose That Lays the Copper Eggs with Mark Mix

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Unionization suffered a stunning defeat in Alabama in their efforts to unionize an Amazon warehouse. What is going to happen next for organized labor in the United States? Today, 27 states have right to work laws in place. These laws prevent unions from forcing people to join their organization. The Biden administration is trying to stop and even rollback these protections. However based upon the Amazon results they are facing an uphill battle. Mark Mix is President of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation. He also serves as President of the National Right to Work Committee, a 2.8 million member public policy organization.

Coming Out of the Covid Closet with Dr. Carole Lieberman (America’s Psychiatrist)

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

CDC Says Fully Vaccinated Americans Can Go Without Masks Outdoors – Will Some Have ‘Reluctant Reentry’ Syndrome? Federal health officials said Tuesday that fully vaccinated Americans can go without masks outdoors when walking, jogging or biking outdoors, or dining with friends at outdoor restaurants. Dr. Carole Lieberman, who has been helping us survive psychologically throughout the pandemic, has now compiled a list of 10 symptoms of what she calls ‘Reluctant Reentry Syndrome’:

1. Vague discomfort about discovering what the ’new normal’ will turn out to be.
2. Dreading the pressure of FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) – as more things open up.
3. Reluctance to get out of your comfy pajamas.
4. Not wanting to face the world after you’ve let yourself get fat and furry.
5. Agoraphobia – fear of being in crowds.
6. Fear of catching Covid19 because of new strains.
7. Dreading the awkwardness of reconnecting with friends, family and colleagues.
8. No longer having the excuse of lockdown to explain why you don’t have a partner.
9. Guilt over releasing your kids back into the scary world.
10. Realizing you don’t want to go back to your old life, but not knowing how to re-invent yourself.

Withdraw Your Consent with Dr. Elaina George

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Dr. Elaina George returns… Are we really giving informed consent in an era when a doctor visit lasts little more than 7 minutes. Has technology really helped the practice of medicine? Conveyor belt medicine doesn’t work. Hands-on medicine is still works best and is crucial for the patient’s well-being. Telemedicine isn’t medicine. It’s a prescription factory. They’re too busy writing a script to be concerned with your underlying health and getting to the real root of the problem. Follow the money. We’re starting to find out the truth about the Covid measures that were taken. Believe it or not. the vaccines have not been FDA approved. What does that tell you?

Stop the Crap on Colonial

by Karl Denninger

Let’s start with the stupid: Yes, what they did, assuming the reports are accurate, was stupid.

You do not connect anything that has access to SCADA, that is, control systems, to the Internet. Period. I don’t care how. I don’t why. I don’t care what. You don’t do it. End of discussion.

Oh, but that means the employees can’t work from home! Correct.

Sit in office, work on machine, machine has zero external connectivity, no USB ports or instantly alarms if you plug something into one, etc.

Connections between facilities are encrypted over centrally-controlled infrastructure with regular audits. Nothing beyond the orbit of those devices connects to the sane and sanitary systems. Period, end of discussion, no exceptions.

No Inflation? Even Used Car Prices Are Soaring

by Simon Black
Sovereign Man

We’ve reached a point now where anyone who can’t see inflation is clearly not paying attention.

Inflation has now become so ridiculous that, according to the Wall Street Journal, even the price of a USED car is increasing… by a lot.

Since January 2020, NEW car prices have increased 9.6%. But USED car prices are up 16.7% over the same period.

This is pretty extraordinary given that used cars are supposed to depreciate. According to one used car dealer, “What is normally a depreciable asset has been appreciating. It’s certainly surreal. . .”

Report Finds CDC Has Been Dramatically Overstating Outdoor Transmission

by Penka Arsova
LaCorte News

A recent report in the New York Times argues that the Center for Disease and Control’s estimate about outdoor transmissions is deceptive and vastly exaggerated.

What specifically? The New York Times report points to an announcement from the Center for Disease and Control in April that said that “less than 10% of documented transmissions” happens outdoors, while the majority occurs indoors.

The agency has further cited the estimate to back recommendations it has made about vaccinated individuals, only allowing them to ditch masks in certain situations.

The pushback: The report says that the 10% estimate is based “partly on a misclassification” of some virus transmission at construction sites in Singapore that may have actually taken place in indoor settings. The confusion reportedly stems from the classification of mixed indoor and outdoor settings, such as construction building sites, as outdoor settings.

Biden Claims Five Past Fed Chairs Back His Jobs Plan, but Two Are Dead and Two More Have Been Quiet About It

Plus: Boomer electoral power dwindling, U.S. migration patterns appear linked to pandemic restrictions, and more…

by Elizabeth Nolan Brown

Biden claims dead economists love his jobs plan. The past five leaders of the Federal Reserve have come out in support of President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan, the president told reporters at the White House last week. “What’d they say? They said, ‘Biden’s plan is going to grow the economy,'” Biden claimed.

That’s not true. In fact, two of the five chairs before incumbent Jerome Powell—G. William Miller and Paul Volcker—are now dead.

Two of the three living previous Fed chairs—Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke—have been quiet or vague about the $2.3 trillion spending proposal Biden has put forth in the name of “infrastructure” and “jobs.” Greenspan’s only comments on it seem to be about infrastructure spending generally, and I can find no comments from Bernanke.

Only former Chair Janet Yellen, who is now Biden’s treasury secretary, has really been promoting it.

So what the heck was Biden talking about?

Tucker Carlson Attacks St. Fauci’s Role in the Genesis of the Covid Pandemic

by Thomas Lifson
American Thinker

“More than any other single living American, Tony Fauci is responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic.”

With these bold words, the most popular commentator on cable news threw down the gauntlet on a man all but sainted by the corporate media. Drawing on the work of Nicholas Wade, who for decades edited the Science section of the New York Times, Tucker pointed out that Dr. Anthony Fauci (the highest-paid employee of the federal government) personally overrode a federal ban on gain of function research that makes pathogens more deadly and more transmissible, and funded such research at a facility linked to the Chinese military.

“His Womanizing Was Well Known”: Flood-‘Gates’ Open as Biographer Details Microsoft Founder’s Salacious Past

from Zero Hedge

Before Bill Gates was known as an elitist nerd masquerading as a leading vaccine expert, the Microsoft co-founder was a hard-partying womanizer who recruited local strippers to attend naked pool parties, and had major issues with infidelity even after marrying Melinda, according to a biography.

The Microsoft co-founder’s wild lifestyle was well known among his inner circle — but newspapers like the New York Times hid the unflattering reports to continue getting “spoon-fed stories,” James Wallace wrote in the 1997 biography, “Overdrive: Bill Gates and the Race to Control Cyberspace.”

They “didn’t report on the wild bachelor parties that Microsoft’s boyish chairman would throw in his Seattle home, for which Gates would visit one of Seattle’s all-nude nightclubs and hire dancers to come to his home and swim naked with his friends in his indoor pool,” Wallace wrote.

It was a continuation from his time at Harvard, where he “did like to frequent Boston’s notorious Combat Zone, with its porn shows, strip joints, and prostitutes,” Wallace wrote. –NY Post

What’s more, Bill continued acting like a bachelor even after he started dating future wife Melinda in 1988.

At $49.1 Trillion, the U.S. Stock Market is Larger than the Combined GDP of the U.S., China, Japan and Germany

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

When the motherlode of stock market bubbles finally pops, exposing the corrupt edifices on which it was built, you can count on one thing for sure – there will be lots of testimony before Congress that no one could have seen it coming.

The simple chart above, that took us 30 minutes to prepare in an Excel spreadsheet, is proof that anyone among the legions of Wall Street bank regulators at the Federal Reserve, the OCC, the FDIC, and the SEC can see what’s coming.

The chart compares U.S. GDP to the total stock market value at December 31, 1999, prior to the bursting of the dot.com bubble; at December 31, 2007, prior to the bursting of the subprime and derivatives bubble; and on December 31, 2020, prior to the bursting of whatever the bailout boys decide to call this bubble.

We Cannot Build an Economy On Lies

by William L. Anderson

In a recent issue, Time Magazine boldly declared, “The Free Market Is Dead,” and then added: “What Will Replace It?” Of course, one always can expect Time to be disingenuous at best and dishonest at worst, and as an academic economist, I have come to realize that after reading Time off and on for more than five decades, this is a publication that rarely gets it right when it comes to economic analysis.

Yet, we also are dealing with a publication that effectively reflects whatever the current spirit might be. In the mid-1980s, Time gave its readers the infamous cover condemning the bacon-and-eggs breakfast and gave massive publicity to the eat-more-carbs “experts.” America’s climb into obesity followed shortly afterward, and even Time had to backtrack on its original claims in 2014, admitting that the so-called food science truths it promoted turned out to be falsehoods.

Let’s Discuss What QE Really Does vs the Psychology of QE

by Mike ‘Mish’ Shedlock
Mish Talk

John Hussman has an interesting take on “Quantitative Easing!” vs “Quantitative Easing” in his latest monthly missive Counting the Chickens Twice

After decades of successfully navigating complete market cycles, my greatest investment mistake (particularly between 2012 and 2017) was to underestimate the extent to which the idea of quantitative easing would infect the minds of investors and abolish their discernment.

As a policy, quantitative easing is very straightforward: the Federal Reserve buys interest-bearing Treasury securities, and pays for them with zero interest base money (currency and bank reserves) that someone has to hold at every moment in time until that base money is retired.

That’s it. That’s the entire mechanism by which QE has any hope of “supporting” the stock market. Investors become so uncomfortable holding a zero-interest asset that they feel compelled to get rid of it by purchasing some other asset that they imagine will provide them with a better return.

Face Masks Are Not About Science, They Are About Instilling Fear & Social Control

by Bill Sardi

This Just In… Face Masks Reduce COVID-19 Infection Rate By An Insignificant 3/10ths Of One-Percent; But Who Is Going To Change Policy At Retail Stores?

According to Catherine Austin Fitts, who once held a position at the Department of Housing & Urban Development, the big banks are behind the GREAT RESET that is being foisted upon the American public. The Central Bankers approved a plan in August of 2019 approved a plan called “The Going Direct Reset,” just prior to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

The bankers are intentionally taking down the economy to force the public to beg for a reset, and culling the population of senior Americans in nursing homes that account for most of the COVID-19 associated deaths.

Technically Speaking: If Everyone Sees It, is it Still a Bubble?

by Lance Roberts
Real Investment Advice

“If everyone sees it, is it still a bubble?”

That was a great question I got over the weekend. As a “contrarian” investor, it is usually when “everyone” is talking about an event; it doesn’t happen.

As Mark Hulbert noted recently, “everyone” is worrying about a “bubble” in the stock market. To wit:

“To appreciate how widespread current concern about a bubble is, consider the accompanying chart of data from Google Trends. It plots the relative frequency of Google searches based on the term ‘stock market bubble.’ Notice that this frequency has recently jumped to a far-higher level than at any other point over the last five years.”

Shades of Jimmy Carter: Gas Lines, Inflation, Rising Unemployment Return Under Biden

by Joseph Curl
Daily Wire

Just over 40 years ago, President Jimmy Carter delivered an address to the nation, which was later dubbed the “malaise” speech.

With long gas lines across the country, sky-high inflation and rising unemployment, Carter decided to blame Americans for the country’s woes.

“The threat is nearly invisible in ordinary ways. It is a crisis of confidence. It is a crisis that strikes at the very heart and soul and spirit of our national will. We can see this crisis in the growing doubt about the meaning of our own lives and in the loss of a unity of purpose for our nation,” Carter said.

Not exactly the message a president ought to deliver to worried Americans.

Obama’s Housing Secretary, Who is Running for NYC Mayor, Thinks a Brooklyn Home Costs Around $100,000. It’s More Like $900,000.

by Michael Ginsberg

Former Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Shaun Donovan, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for New York City’s mayor, drastically underestimated the cost of a Brooklyn home.

Donovan claimed in a New York Times editorial board interview that a home in Brooklyn costs “around $100,000.” Editorial Board member Mara Gay then corrected him, noting a real estate website’s calculation that Brooklyn’s median home price is around $900,000.

[…] The average price of a single family home in Brooklyn is $768,000, according to Zillow.

A spokesman for Donovan emailed the Times after the interview, saying that he misunderstood the question and believed it to be about the assessed prices of Brooklyn houses.

Over 120 Retired Flag Officers Warn Country is Under Assault from Socialism and Marxism

by Kristina Wong

Over 120 retired military flag officers warned in a letter Monday that the country is in “deep peril” and under “tremendous assault” from those believing in socialism and Marxism, and encouraged Americans to get more politically involved to act against it.

“Our Nation is in deep peril. We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of Socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty,” the retired officers wrote.

They slammed the 2020 election process and argued that Democrat House bill H.R. 1 and its Senate companion bill S. 1 would destroy election fairness and allow Democrats to forever remain in power. They wrote:

Biden Must Reverse Course on Iran – Before It’s Too Late

by Sen. Bill Hagerty & H.R. McMaster
Real Clear Politics

Media outlets around the world recently reported on leaked audio comments in which Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif admitted that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps controls all of Iran’s foreign policy decisions. Although President Joe Biden was careful to mention neither Zarif nor Iran in his speech before Congress last month, Zarif’s embarrassingly candid revelations have direct implications for Biden’s entire Iran policy: namely, it underscores that reducing economic sanctions in order to moderate the Iranian regime cannot work.

For decades, U.S. policy toward Iran has produced disappointing results, largely because American administrations have underestimated the entrenched ideology of Iran’s theocratic dictatorship and mistakenly assumed the regime can be tamed by conciliatory diplomacy. Western efforts to placate Tehran have failed consistently since the revolutionaries took power in 1979, yet recent reports indicate President Biden is in the process of repeating this failure.

Hayek’s Still Relevant Response to Today’s Paternalist Planners

by Richard M. Ebeling
The American Institute for Economic Research

Among many American “progressives” and those in the Democratic Party establishment, there is a heady euphoria that their day has again come, that there is an opportunity to establish and implement their dream of a far more comprehensive and commanding government presence over the society.

Their vision already promises well over $6 trillion of additional federal government spending; and this is only what Biden and the Democrats have legislated or have been proposing for Congress to pass during the president’s first 100 days in office! Given the spider’s web of additional or intensified government intrusions into almost every corner of personal, social and economic life that is desired by the political paternalists, it would be far easier to count on one hand the various aspects of our lives that would remain free of governmental regulation and redistribution, command and control, and planning and plunder.

Could the Wildly Out of Control Violence in Jerusalem Spark a Major Regional War in the Middle East?

by Michael Snyder
End of the American Dream

Things have been getting more tense in Jerusalem for weeks, and Monday was the day when tensions really started to boil over. The violence that we witnessed in the streets of Jerusalem shocked the entire globe, and it threatens to spark a major regional conflict. At one point, a tree that had been set on fire on the Temple Mount was burning wildly out of control, and that was a perfect metaphor for the emotions that we witnessed on both sides. As a result of multiple violent clashes, over 300 Palestinians and an undisclosed number of Israelis ended up with injuries…

Though the past week has seen hundreds of Palestinians and Israeli police officers and civilians injured, the defense establishment still thought that the situation could have returned to normal.

But that was wishful thinking.

More than 300 Palestinians and several Israelis were injured in clashes with police officers on Monday in violence that the city has not seen in years.

In response to the chaos in Jerusalem, Hamas fired more than 160 rockets into Israel, and the IDF responded by striking several targets in the Gaza strip. The following comes from the Jerusalem Post…

Who’s to Blame for the Pipeline Being Down? Russia, of Course.

by Mac Slavo

Because the Colonial pipeline is now offline due to an alleged cyberattack, the ruling class has scrambled for an answer. Who’s to blame? Russia, of course.

Even though most of us are beginning to see through the facade, they are still trying to push agendas. The central banks are hiding the massive inflation in energy prices, so it makes sense they’d use this false flag to benefit them from all sides. So in addition to hiding hyperinflation, they get the added benefit of destroying the economy and running out of gas and diesel to deliver food to people all while ramping up tensions with Russia.


It’s hard to believe that even though we can see through it, the masses are still blind. It’s time we apply critical thinking and this one “attack” checks off several boxes for their agenda.

Rand Paul Confronts Fauci on Funding Gain of Function Research at Wuhan Lab

Another combative exchange between NIAID head and the Kentucky senator on the books

by Jamie White
Info Wars

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) confronted Dr. Anthony Fauci on the National Institute of Health’s involvement in funding gain of function research at the Wuhan biolab in China.

During a hearing with the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions on Tuesday, Paul asked Fauci if he still supported the NIH’s funding of the Wuhan lab with taxpayer money.

“Dr. Fauci, do you still support the NIH funding of the lab in Wuhan?” Paul asked.

“Senator Paul, with all due respect, you are entirely and completely incorrect. The NIH has not ever and does not now fund gain of function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” Fauci claimed.
