The Cure is Worse Than the Disease with Jim Welsh

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

As rates continue to increase, it is difficult to pinpoint the Fed’s plan for the year ahead. I sit down and chat with Jim Welsh, who explains the thinking behind the rate increases and how to plan ahead using this information. Jim predicts that the Fed is going to keep the funds rate and monetary policy tighter for a longer period of time. Ultimately, we’re going to have to address problems that have been building up for decades, and although inflation will be reduced, it’s still going to hold above 3% for a while. Tune in for more valuable insight from Jim.

Victims of Our Own Success with Edward Siddell

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

As we start the final month of the year, sentiment is not looking great. The market is indecisive, and employment, confidence, and decisiveness are all intertwined, Edward Siddell comes on the show to discuss what’s in store for 2023, starting with the fact that we are a victim of our own success. We’ve pushed inflation all the way around the world, and the enlarging debt bubble has to pop eventually. Edward advises us to be cautiously optimistic during this time—being meticulous and adopting strategies for the year ahead. Amongst other market uncertainties, one should pay special attention to the energy sector as a solid area of investment for 2023. Tune in for more insight.

Markets Under Pressure, but Powell Will Save the Day with Nick Santiago (Ep #445)

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. Markets are under pressure again this morning. Lately, we are seeing a lot of weak Mondays and then markets seem to rally back. Everyone is now waiting on the FOMC meeting next week to really get a sense of what Fed Chair Jay Powell is looking to do going forward. In my opinion, this is still a bear market rally and there are lots of major hurdles ahead.

2. Oil is holding up well today after the EU announced Russian price caps. Meanwhile nat gas is getting hit hard after the EU lowered its gas demand by 25% according to the FT. I’m hoping nat gas pulls back a little more as it should be setting up for another buying opportunity.

3. Precious metals are pulling back today. Silver is trading down by over 3% today. This was really due after the major run that silver has had recently. Again, I’m going to be patient here looking for another pattern to enter silver again.

4. Bitcoin is flat today, so there could be some more choppy around down here. I still believe there will be more shoes to drop from the FTX collapse so be careful with crypto here. As you know, Bitcoin should fall below 12k and possibly down to 11K.

It’s a Good Time to Not Be ‘Interested’ in Credit with Matthew Johnson

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday there were over 61 million transactions, but not because inflation is getting better. I sit down and chat with Matthew Johnson, who points out that, as businesses make it increasingly easy to pay using credit, interest on these lines of credit is simultaneously skyrocketing. Credit card companies are taking full advantage of higher interest rates, and the problem isn’t being resolved any time soon. Tune in to hear more on this topic and to learn how you can be financially defensive in these circumstances.

Torq’s Gold-Copper Discovery Defines an 800m Strike at Margarita Project

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

We received a further sponsor update from Torq Resources’ (OTCQX:TRBMF — TSX.V: TORQ) CEO/Chair Shawn Wallace and Chief Geological Officer Michael Henrichsen. There’s been a steady stream of positive news and the pace is accelerating.

The company announced that it has defined a gold–copper mineralized system over an impressive 800 meter strike length at the Falla 13 discovery (in its Margarita project). Most notable among the results: 64 m of 0.63 g/t gold (Au) and 0.63% copper (Cu) in 22MAR-017R, 130 m of 0.36 g/t Au and 0.28% Cu (including 30 m of 1.02 g/t Au and 0.57% Cu) in 22MAR-023R, and 62 m of 0.51 g/t Au and 0.38% Cu (including 16 m of 1.6 g/t Au and 0.98% Cu), in 22MAR-024R.”

CEO Wallace stated, “The successful completion of the second drill program at Margarita marks an important milestone for the project and the Company. It is incredible that less than one year ago, Margarita was a prospect without a single drill hole.”

Chief Geological Officer Henrichsen concurred, “With our second phase of drilling complete at the Margarita project we have been able to delineate a mineralized body over an 800m strike length in a short amount of time. Over the next several months we will refine our targets through additional soil sampling with an emphasis on gold, additional induced polarization (IP) lines in the northern region of the project and continued geologic mapping. We look forward to outlining our third phase drill program for the project.”

The inaugural drill program at the Santa Cecilia project is next on the agenda. Torq expects major results here as well. CEO Wallace says: “I’ve never been more excited in my career…I cannot wait for this drill program. I’m giddy about it…The rarity of being able to go work on something like this…It’s a dream come true.”

As Henrichsen said, “Torq is tracking in the right direction.” Major progress is being made on its projects and investors will eventually realize the rewards of Torq’s aggressive strategy.

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Kyle O’Dell has a long history in the financial sector, and comes on the show to give his take on the latest GDP numbers.

Other variables such as increasing credit card balances, lower income levels, and lower savings indicate that the reality is less positive than we may be led to think. Kyle outlines some investing opportunities that provide safety within the downside, and we discuss the future implications of what is happening right now. Tune in for more insight.

Fury Gold Hits High-Grade Gold (45g/t) & Expands Eau Claire Deposit Strike Length with CEO Tim Clark

from Mining Stock Education

Fury Gold (Ticker:FURY) recently announced three core drill holes at the Eau Claire project located in the Eeyou Istchee Territory in the James Bay region of Quebec. The three holes targeted the Gap Zone between the 450 Zone, which hosts the bulk of the Eau Claire defined resource, and the Hinge Target. Drill hole 22EC-058 intercepted three zones of gold mineralization across 42.5 metres drilled width including 1.0m of 45.00 g/t Au and 1.0m of 5.55 g/t Au. The intercepts from 22EC-058 extend gold mineralization by approximately 150m to the west and 315m downdip of the defined resource, further expanding the mineralized footprint of the deposit.

“The Gap Zone is a highly prospective target for Fury and these results are very encouraging as they have expanded the mineralized footprint at Eau Claire and demonstrate that the deposit is open for significant expansion in a third target area,” commented Tim Clark, CEO of Fury. “We are looking forward to the remaining 11 drill holes completed, from the Hinge Target, Eastern Extension, and Percival targets which are pending assay, with results expected in the coming weeks as well as the expansive Geochem survey we completed at our Lac Clarkie project.”

The Constitution Has Already Been Terminated

by John W. Whitehead and Nisha Whitehead
The Rutherford Institute

“That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary.” – Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

If there is one point on which there should be no political parsing, no legal jockeying, and no disagreement, it is this: for anyone to advocate terminating or suspending the Constitution is tantamount to a declaration of war against the founding principles of our representative government and the rule of law.

Then again, one could well make the case that the Constitution has already been terminated after years on life support, given the extent to which the safeguards enshrined in the Bill of Rights—adopted 231 years ago as a means of protecting the people against government overreach and abuse—have been steadily chipped away at, undermined, eroded, whittled down, and generally discarded with the support of Congress, the White House, and the courts.

Consider for yourself.

It’s a Conspiracy!

by James Rickards
Daily Reckoning

I work hard to avoid promoting conspiracy theories. They’re too easy to adopt as explanations for all sorts of strange events and are highly implausible in most cases.

They require extreme amounts of intelligence, coordination and competence that, quite frankly, the alleged conspirators simply aren’t capable of.

Usually, stupidity is a perfectly good explanation especially when it comes to politicians and other public officials.

Even when elite coordination is apparent it’s not necessarily a conspiracy at work. It may just be the case that like-minded individuals are pursuing a common goal.

“My Jaw Hit The Floor” – Musk Fires Twitter’s ‘FBI-Russiagate’ Lawyer Over Vetting Debacle

from Zero Hedge

Elon Musk on Tuesday announced that former FBI attorney James Baker, who came to Twitter to serve as deputy general counsel, has been fired after ‘vetting’ recently released evidence of Twitter’s election interference unbeknownst to Musk.

“In light of concerns about Baker’s possible role in suppression of information important to the public dialogue, he was exited from Twitter today,” Musk wrote on Twitter, replying to a Dec. 4 Jonathan Turley article shedding light on the incestuous relationship between Twitter, Biden scandals, and Baker.

Journalist Matt Taibbi, who dropped ‘The Twitter Files‘ last Friday detailing how Twitter executives went behind CEO Jack Dorsey’s back to interfere in the 2020 US election by censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story.

According to Taibbi, Baker was involved in ‘vetting’ information without the knowledge of management.

Democrat Voter Fraud: A Brief History

by J.R. Dunn
American Thinker

This is a “brief history” because the complete history of Democrat electoral malfeasance reaching back to Tammany Hall and Tweed would require four volumes or more. (I’m running into the same problem with a new book I’m outlining analyzing the Democrats as a criminal organization, much like the Mafia or the Camorra.)

So a brief history it is, limited to the past thirty years or so. Believe you me, there’s no lack of cases even in that short span.

The Dinkins Magic Voting Machines

Just days before voting in the 1993 David Dinkins/Rudolf Giuliani election, the New York Times reported that a number of voting machines had been found in a closed Manhattan school. All the machines were loaded with votes for Democrat incumbent David Dinkins.

Secretary Yellen, We’ve Got a “Staggering” Problem: New Report Shows Foreign Banks Have Secret Derivative Debt That is “Ten Times Their Capital”

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens
Wall Street on Parade

U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has the dual role of Chairing the Financial Stability Oversight Council (F-SOC), whose role is to provide “comprehensive monitoring of the stability of our nation’s financial system.” Heads of each of the federal agencies that supervise Wall Street and the mega banks sit in on meetings of F-SOC.

One would think that such an august body would have a handle on “staggering” threats to the U.S. financial system – especially since F-SOC was created under the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation to prevent a replay of the off-balance sheet derivatives that crashed the U.S. economy in 2008 and forced an unprecedented and secret bailout of U.S. and foreign global banks by the Federal Reserve to the tune of $29 trillion. If Yellen is aware of the latest threat to financial stability, she’s not sharing the details with the public. That information came yesterday by way of a stunning report authored by Claudio Borio, Robert McCauley and Patrick McGuire for the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).

Climate Change Lockdowns? Yup, They Are Actually Going There…

by Michael Snyder
End of the American Dream

I suppose that we should have known that this was inevitable. After establishing a precedent during the pandemic, now the elite apparently intend to impose lockdowns for other reasons as well. What I have detailed in this article is extremely alarming, and I hope that you will share it with everyone that you can. Climate change lockdowns are here, and if people don’t respond very strongly to this it is likely that we will soon see similar measures implemented all over the western world. The elite have always promised to do “whatever it takes” to fight climate change, and now we are finding out that they weren’t kidding.

Over in the UK, residents of Oxfordshire will now need a special permit to go from one “zone” of the city to another. But even if you have the permit, you will still only be allowed to go from one zone to another “a maximum of 100 days per year”…

Legendary podcast host Joe Rogan slammed woke college professors who promote unhealthy lifestyles during a recent episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

Rogan made the remarks while speaking to guest Derek from the YouTube channel “More Plates More Dates,” who was brought on to speak about a major story that he broke last week about a figure in the fitness world who had been lying about using steroids.

Derek mentioned a document from the University of British Columbia in Canada that argued that people do not need to know how many calories they are consuming in order to be healthy.

New SPAC Stuff Keeps Imploding amid Shortage of “Consensual Hallucination,” as I Call it, but Now the Imploding is a Lot Faster

by Wolf Richter
Wolf Street

I mean, like within hours and days, rather than weeks and months. But the SPAC sponsors want make some money.

Grindr, which describes itself as “the world’s largest social network for the LGBTQ community,” went public via merger with a SPAC on November 18, 2022. On that first day as a public company, the shares shot from the price of the pre-merger-SPAC of $11.63 to an intraday high of $71.51, at which point the collapse started, and 7 trading days into it, the shares had kathoomphed by 91% from that high, and today, 12 trading days into, they’re still down 91%, at $6.37. This chart is just nuts:

Forgetful Fauci’s Deposition: All Those Lies Are Hard to Keep Straight

by Phillip W. Magness and James R. Harrigan
The American Institute for Economic Research

Anthony Fauci’s penchant for misleading the public about COVID-19 may be heading into a federal courtroom soon, owing to a lawsuit brought by the Attorneys General of Missouri, Louisiana, and the New Civil Liberties Alliance. On November 23, 2022, Fauci sat for a sworn deposition about his own actions in directing the United States’ pandemic response. Consistent with his past media appearances, Fauci displayed a penchant for bending the truth to fit his own narrative and, more specifically, denied his own involvement in suppressing the Great Barrington Declaration (GBD) in October 2020. Only this time, it was under oath.

Just about a year ago, on the anniversary date of October 5, 2021 to be exact, we took what we thought would be our retrospective and dispassionate look at the GBD, as lockdowns dissipated and mask mandates faded away. Two months later, AIER discovered a shocking revelation in emails received from a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to Fauci’s office.

Finding Order in Chaos

by Craig Hemke
Sprott Money

It’s that time of year when analysts and prognosticators begin issuing their forecasts for the year to come. This is always challenging business, and predicting 2023 promises to be even more difficult than usual.

My initial thoughts on 2023 are that it will be much like 2010 and 2019, years where an early or unexpected Fed pivot to loosening and QE drove strong gains in the COMEX precious metals. That part of the next twelve months seems a certainty. The only question is timing—and that’s the hard part.

Take, for example, this year. I missed on my year-end price targets because the Fed has taken longer to pause/pivot than I expected.

COP27: Global Meeting to Destroy America – Alex Newman

by Greg Hunter
USA Watchdog

Award-winning journalist Alex Newman, author of the popular books “Deep State” and “Crimes of the Educators,” says Deep State globalists had a two-week conference in Egypt called COP27 that outlined the plan to enslave the planet with a New World Order globalist agenda. It was a huge conference in mid-November that most Americans knew nothing about because the Lying Legacy Media (LLM) would not cover it. Why did the LLM lie by omission and not show Americans what was going on when the entire world covered this conference? Newman, who attended COP27, contends, “This is an incredibly significant story, and anywhere else in the world you would have seen very extensive coverage in the press, in the fake news media as we call it. There were thousands of journalists there. I call them the cheerleading section from all over the world. Conspicuously absent, though, was the American media. . . . If Americans knew what was going on . . . they would put a stop to it almost immediately. So, there was almost total radio silence in the U.S. This was very, very significant because you had 125 prime ministers, kings, dictators and presidents, including Joe Biden, show up. I actually ran into John Kerry there, and he was not very talkative. . . . It was just Americans that were kept totally in the dark about this. This was the most significant thing going on in the world until the G-20 started. . . . There were world leaders from all over the planet. We are talking about wealth redistribution. We are talking about stealing money from middle-class and poor Americans and redistributing that to the very wealthy, uber elites and the kleptocrats who have kept the third world impoverished.”

We Are Being Warned That the Global Economy is Having “One of Its Worst Years in Three Decades”

by Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse Blog

Will 2022 go down in history as one of the most important economic turning points that we have ever seen? All over the planet, economic activity is beginning to decelerate and uncertainty about the future is in the air. Meanwhile, the cost of living continues to escalate and a very painful energy crisis has begun. Unless there is some sort of an economic miracle, it appears that 2023 will be a very difficult year, and the long-term outlook beyond next year is even more ominous. Suddenly, many of the talking heads on television are openly speculating about the hard times that are coming, and the word “recession” is being thrown around quite frequently.

But will we only be dealing with a “recession” in the months ahead, or will it be much worse than that?
