Trillion Energy Ready to Drill its SASB Gas Field with CEO Arthur Halleran

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Trillion Energy’s CEO Arthur Halleran (Ticker Symbols: OTC: TRLEF — CSE:TCF – Frankfurt Z62) joined us for a much-anticipated sponsor update. The company is fresh from a C$22.5 million massively oversubscribed offering and how has the cash to start spudding wells. Halleran recently visited Turkey to accelerate the project and expects the first wells to be spudded later this summer.

A lot has happened in the past 18 months. Turkish natural gas prices have more than tripled to $21 mcf and the expectation is that they will go higher still in the months ahead. There’s no end in sight to the Ukraine war and Russia has drastically curtailed European gas sales. A cold winter could lead to dramatically higher prices and Trillion is poised to profit from it. The plan is to eventually have at least 17 producing wells. While the SASB field was a prodigious producer in the past, new technology and drilling methods should lead to record production for many years ahead. Best of all capex will be low as existing infrastructure replacement according to Halleran is over C$500 million.

The company’s Bulgarian project was on the backburner till recently due to the global pandemic. It has worked to Trillion’s advantage. The company now has optionality, it can use SASB cash flow to finance production, or it can bring on a production partner. The profit potential is clear with gas now trading at $22 per mcf and Russian induced shortages are prevalent. We’re still extremely bullish about Trillion and continue to hold shares.

You Need to Get Out of Debt with Paul Oster

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Credit repair expert Paul Oster comes on FSN to talk about the importance of paying off your debt—especially in our current economy. Since stimulus checks are no longer being issued, it’s time to re-acclimate and formulate a plan for debt free living. As rates go up, it will take people more money and a longer period of time to pay off debt. Once you create a plan to get out of debt, you’ll wish you had started sooner. Tune in for more insight from Paul, and visit his website for credit repair resources and coaching.

Tier One Silver Begins 2022 Work at its High-Grade Silver Projects with CEO Peter Dembicki

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

We were joined by Tier One Silver’s CEO/President Peter Dembicki and SVP of Exploration Christian Rios for a sponsor update. The company is resuming its exploration program as the Peruvian rainy season has ended. The Phase one results at the Curibaya project were quite impressive. CEO Dembicki observed that, “… the company is at the start of a major silver discovery.” The company hit bonanza and high-grade silver in a number of drill holes.

Exciting as these discoveries were, there’s every indication that a large copper porphyry deposit is lurking. To aid its efforts, the company brought in two world-class consultants to review the drill results and set the course for Phase two of the program. SVP Rios has laid out a strategy of doing more surface sampling to better develop future drill targets.

The company is also moving forward with its Hurricane Silver project and will be conducting geochemical and geophysical surveys at the Magdalena target area, where five mineralized vein corridors were identified with recent channel sampling results including 6 m of 239 g/t Ag, 1.21% Cu, 0.34% Pb, 0.15% Zn and 1 m of 605 g/t Ag, 0.26% Cu, 5.79% Pb, 0.21% Zn. A social access agreement was recently obtained here.

It’s hard to believe that Tier One was formed a little more than a year ago. The results to date have been impressive, but the company is picking up the pace and more positive news is expected. Fresh from a C$6 million capital raise, the company is well-funded. It’s noteworthy that even in the depressed junior sector, investors enthusiastically ponied up additional funds to advance the company.

With a world-class team and the proven ability to get the job done, Tier One’s future looks bright, and we’re among the company’s shareholders looking for a large return from our patience.

The Sinking of the USS GDP with Nick Santiago (Ep #405)

from Daily Market Wisdom with Nick Santiago

For more than 20 years, Master Trader Nick Santiago has been beating the markets. He’s made some incredible calls along the way and now he’s looking to spread the word. There’s no reason that the average trader should be coming up short. So now we’ve started a daily show to bring you up to date on the latest market developments. Nick will be sharing trades and concepts and discussing current trends.

Today:

1. Earlier today, the real GDP reportedly decreased at a 1.6% annual rate in the first quarter. This was expected so there were no surprises here. For me, I do not care so much about any of these numbers, I care about the stock market’s reaction. Yesterday, the markets had a sharp decline after a one week rally and today they are bouncing a bit after a weak start to the session. Several central bank leaders including Fed Chairman Jay Powell are speaking at an ECB conference. So far, I have not heard anything unexpected.

2. Gold is slightly negative after starting the day in positive territory. I will say, the gold mining chart is weak lately and I never like to see the miners lag the metal itself. Either way, the gold pattern is still holding right now.

3. Bitcoin is still trading around the psychological 20,000 level. The trend here is down, but as long as it holds this key support it lives to fight another day. In the big picture, it should fall lower to around the 14,000 level, but that could take some time.

Coinbase Has Been Providing “Historical Geo Tracking” Information and Tracing Software to Government Agencies

from Zero Hedge

So much for decentralized finance.

The largest cryptocurrency exchange in the U.S., Coinbase, has been reportedly selling Immigrations and Customs Enforcement tools to track and identify cryptocurrency users, a stunning new report from The Intercept revealed this week.

The company “sold a single analytics software license to ICE for $29,000” back in August 2021, the report says. The next month, however, it sold software worth $1.36 million to the agency, the report says.

A contract involving the sales revealed that ICE “now has access to a variety of forensic features provided through Coinbase Tracer”, the company’s internal intelligence tool.

Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan Chase Have Been Trading Like Clones for Two Months; Both Are Down Almost 30 Percent Year-to-Date

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

JPMorgan Chase’s stock has lost 27 percent of its market value year-to-date through its June 29 closing price. But more disturbing than that is the above chart showing that the behemoth German lender, Deutsche Bank, has been trading like a clone of JPMorgan Chase for the past two months. Deutsche Bank’s stock price is down just one percentage point more than JPMorgan Chase year-to-date. JPMorgan Chase is the largest federally-insured bank in the United States.

Looking like one is tied with an umbilical cord to Deutsche Bank has its perils on Wall Street. Let’s start with the raids on the Deutsche Bank’s headquarters, two of which coincided with dead bodies turning up.

Paul Craig Roberts – Nuke War Coming, Mysterious Deaths Don’t Stop, Democrats Can’t Win

by Greg Hunter
USA Watchdog

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says American leaders want war with Russia. Russia is trying to avoid war, but the provocations from the U.S. and NATO keep coming. At some point, Dr. Roberts says Russia will be backed into a corner, and it won’t take long for the battle to go nuclear. This is a special interview inside the Weekly News Wrap-Up that explains how we got here and where we are going in terms of war with Russia. Dr. Roberts says it’s no longer a question of if, but when, it all hits the fan.

You cannot hide the unexplained deaths and emergency sickness. It is now happening every week. 32-year-old SNL comedian Nick Nemeroff died in his sleep this week, but before he did, he was on video complaining about being deathly sick after the two CV19 shots he already got. He pledged that he would not get the booster, and he never did–because he died a few days later. Meanwhile, Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker was rushed to the hospital with some strange emergency, and the drummer for Five Seconds of Summer passed out on stage for no apparent reason. Once again, the question is, “Were they vaxed?” This trend is going to continue for some time to come no matter if you are famous or not.

Tonight, Chris and Evie dissected the latest energy, economic and health news and why the road downhill looks more perilous each day. The U.S., EU and Russia are signaling more hostile intent through backchannel diplomatic moves and front facing resource and economic attacks, and now a new military base near Russia’s border in Poland.

Is it the late 1930s again? What about the impacts of current events on our home fronts? Potential energy shortages reaching across the Atlantic to America? And then there is still the Covid and the vaccine injuries…?

Rather Inflated….. Boom!

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker.org

From the headline:

The Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers (CPI-U) increased 1.0 percent in May on a seasonally adjusted basis after rising 0.3 percent in April, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Over the last 12 months, the all items index increased 8.6 percent before seasonal adjustment.

Food at home was up 1.4% on the month, which is catastrophically bad. Fuel, of course, was up ridiculously in May, which we all know (4.1% for gasoline, 3.9% for all energy.)

Annualized figures are not relaxing. Food at home is up 11.9% with protein sources being up 14.2%. Energy commodities are up a stunning 50.3% overall, with fuel oil (that’s diesel, fools) a clean double. This is entirely a policy decision by the Biden Administration who said this was what he was going to do during the campaign, and he did. Do not kid yourself — the last barrel’s price of oil today is what you pay for all of them; that’s just how it works.

Inflation, Recession, and New Currencies

by Alasdair MacLeod
Gold Money

Central bankers are trying to steer markets away from higher interest rates, citing growing evidence of the harm they are doing to economic growth. Quantitative tightening is dead on arrival.

Predictably — because it is a repetitive cycle — bank credit is beginning to contract. But contracting bank credit is associated with periodic systemic crises. The credit contraction crisis promises to be even worse than the Lehman failure and any that came before it. And because central banks are sure to protect financial asset values from collapsing, their currencies are likely to suffer instead. Being entirely fiat unbacked by legal money, currencies are dependent entirely on the public faith in a financial system which lacks the backing of real money.

Abolishing the Filibuster to Protect Abortion Rights Would Clear the Way for Republicans to Ban Abortion

Democrats aren’t really this short-sighted, are they?

by Eric Boehm
Reason.com

Last week’s overturning of Roe v. Wade (1973) by the U.S. Supreme Court was made possible, at least in some small ways, by what then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D–Nev.) did in November 2013.

Seeking a short-term political win, Reid followed through on what both Democrats and Republicans had taken turns threatening to do for the better part of the past decade: abolishing the filibuster for judicial nominees. And the move did indeed pay some short-term dividends, as Democrats were able to use their Senate majority to push through a bunch of circuit court judicial nominations that had been stalled by GOP filibuster threats.

Over the longer term, however, that maneuver turned into a clear win for Republicans.

The Dobbs Decision in One Easy Lesson

by Pete McArdle
American Thinker

Now, I know that libs are mighty upset about the recent Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade. Add to this the undeniable fact that liberals, led by the likes of Crusty Joe, Dumbo Harris, and America’s favorite bartender, Ms. Occasional-Cortex, are generally none too bright.

But let’s face it, libs, angry and stupid is no way to go through life. So as a public service to dummies all across the fruited plains, I’ve put together a FAQ on the current state of abortion in the U.S.

For added realism, imagine all the questions spoken in a whiny, petulant voice by some soft, lumpen incel like, say, Brian Stelter.

So now, after this terrible, no-good, horrible Supreme Court ruling, abortion is illegal?

Every S&P 500 Sector Fell in First Half, Except Energy. But in June Even Energy Let Go. Bonds Got Crushed. I’m Not Even Going to Mention Cryptos & DeFi

by Wolf Richter
Wolf Street

But cryptos and DeFi created a big mess as hidden leverage is blowing up, and the mess spread to stocks.

The most interesting thing that shows up today in the stock market nightmare figures of the first-half of 2022 isn’t that it was the worst first half for the S&P 500 since 1970, which was just a coincidence of the calendar in that the S&P 500 peaked at the very beginning of the year, on January 3, and then spiraled lower for six months; whereas, for example, in the year 2000 at the beginning of the dotcom bust during which the S&P 500 would eventually drop by over 50%, the index rose 3.9% through the peak on March 23, and then fell 4.8% through June 30, for a first-half dip of just 1.0%.

Biden On How Long It’s ‘Fair to Expect’ Americans to Pay Historic Gas Prices: ‘As Long as it Takes’ to Beat Putin

by Ryan Saavedra
Daily Wire

Democrat President Joe Biden said during remarks on Thursday that it was fair for Americans to expect to have to pay record high gas prices for “as long as it takes” for Russia to be defeated in Ukraine, even though gas prices were surging well before the invasion occurred.

Biden made the remarks to reporters during a brief question and answer session while in Madrid at a North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit.

“The war has pushed prices up,” a reporter said. “They could go as high as $200 a barrel, some analysts think.”

“How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay that premium for this war?” the reporter asked.

Brazil’s Bolsonaro Pledges Guns Laws Similar to U.S. if Reelected

by Jeff Poor
Breitbart.com

During an interview that aired on Thursday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro explained his view that while many South American countries were tightening gun restrictions, Brazil should mimic the United States and its gun rights preserved by the Second Amendment.

According to the Brazilian president, an armed population could favor public safety.

“I was unable to actually change the Brazilian law, but by means of a presidential decree and also through ministerial orders, we interpreted the existing legislation as best as possible,” Bolsonaro said through a translator. “And there has been a substantial increase in the number of people who own legally owned firearms in Brazil. And the consequences you see in the Brazilian media is the drop or a drop in the number of people who are killed by firearms in Brazil.”

Creator of Friends Apologises for Characters Being White

“I’m embarrassed that I didn’t know better 25 years ago”

by Steve Watson
Summit News

One of the co-creators of the TV show Friends, perhaps the most monumentally successful worldwide global smash hit production ever, has apologised for the characters being white and pledged to give millions of dollars to black education.

Marta Kauffman told the LA Times that she finds it “painful” that all the main characters on the show were not ‘diverse’ enough for modern standards and that “Admitting and accepting guilt is not easy.”

The writer continued, “What makes this truly emotional for me is that I want this connection I didn’t have. I deeply, deeply want this connection with the black community that I didn’t have. Because of ‘Friends,’ I never attained that.”

The Road to Armageddon is Being Set in Stone

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
PaulCraigRoberts.org

I seem to be the only prescient person on the foreign policy scene. But not Washington, not Europe, and not Russia are interested in what I have to say.

I said that it was a strategic mistake for the Kremlin to limit its military operation in Ukraine and to impose restraints on the military action that would drag out the process of Russian victory. I said this would wrongly convince the West that the Russian military wasn’t as formidable as it is and give the West plenty of time to widen the war by becoming more and more involved. With the cold shoulder the West gave to Russia’s security concerns, I said nothing less than a lightening conquest of all of Ukraine and replacement of the US puppet government with a Russian puppet government would convince the West that Russia’s red lines were real and that Russia’s security concerns had to be addressed.

My Body My Choice, and Insurrection Exception – A Psyop Extravaganza

“Prole”

Released in June 2022, “Prole” is set in a dystopian world where workers who get pregnant are sent out of state to get an abortion encouraged, and bankrolled by their employers.

Abortion travel benefits.

Pretty dystopian, right?

But, of course, no office babies equal no maternity pay or 24-week productivity interruption, which is what Google is offering its life-giving laborers. (Birth parents at Airbnb and Microsoft are getting around 22 weeks of paid time off, 20 weeks at Amazon, 18 weeks at Uber, and around 17 weeks at Meta)

Let’s do some quick Jeff & Lucy air-math.
