Triple Lutz Report #217 – Were You Prepared For Hurricane Sandy?

from FinancialSurvivalNet

At FSN, we’re never ones to say I told you so. We have been urging you for many months to prepare now for the worst. We had no idea if it would be a hurricane, terrorist act or earthquake. However, we do know that natural disasters happen the world over and while the United States has often been spared, we are not exempt. People in New York City are diving through dumpsters in search of nutrition. Don’t let that be you. If you haven’t prepared already, please take this opportunity to do it now. No one knows what the future will bring, but we do know that it is unpredictable and we all need to prepare for the worst and hope for the best. It’s that simple.

Dave Kranzler – A Reformed Wall-Streeter Deconstructs Fraudulent Housing Start Stats

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Dave Kranzler started out like so many other college grads on Wall Street. Then he saw the golden light and his life has never been the same. He started a fund that is 50 percent invested in physical gold and silver. The rest is invested in a concentrated mining stock portfolio. When an investor cashes they can receive their pro rata share of the physical metal portfolio. Dave loves going behind the government statistics to find the truth. And when it comes to the truth, the housing market is still in a depression. While the politicians lie, the numbers don’t. Dave will become a regular on FSN.

Jan Skoyles – Three Things Are True In Life: Death, Taxes & Inflation

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Jan Skoyles, one of our favorite guests from across the pond joined us today. She’s been doing research about the effects of presidential elections on the price of gold. Not surprisingly, democrat presidents are very bullish for the price of gold, just look at FDR, Carter and Obama. But so are presidents of either party when running for re-election. It’s probably true that any government in the long run will be good for the price of gold, as it seems that three things in life are always true, death, taxes and inflation.

Bron Suchecki – The Perth Mint Really Does Have The Metal

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Bron Suchecki, director of strategy at the Perth Mint joined us today to clarify a number of rumors and misunderstandings about the Mint’s policies and accounting. Perth sells certificates that are backed up by the metal they have in inventory, awaiting fabrication. Buyers of the certificates are not charged for storage. This practice has led a number of reputable writers to question whether Perth really does have the metal and perhaps more importantly, what would happen if a shortage of metal prevented them from restocking their inventory. Bron explains that they never actually ran out of metal in 2008. They tapped other sources to keep the metal flowing, and if they were ever in a position where suddenly gold and silver became unobtainable, they would be forced to stop producing and keep the inventory in place. Additionally, Perth’s auditors have certified their financial statements, never qualifying them due to an inventory shortage. While there are no sure things in this world, especially where counterparty risk exists, Perth is probably as close as one can get to minimization of this risk.

Danielle Park – Martha Stewart Isn’t Really Self-Sufficient

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Danielle Park of Juggling Dynamite took time out of her schedule for our bi-weekly update. With the hurricane decimating the US’s Eastern Seaboard, the point has yet again been illustrated that humanity must become more self-sufficient and look less to the government for the necessities of life. This means you need to prepare for potential disasters ahead of time and be ready for political and economic upheavals. We’ve experienced a number of these in the recent past and experience tells us that we need to be ready for more. Most importantly, this is actually a positive developement for humanity that will leave us all in a much better place.

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Katie Kieffer is a rising young star in the conservative movement. She has her own column at conservative stalwart TownHall.com and she writes extensively about issues of freedom and individual rights. Recently she was subjected to humiliation and delay when she lawfully opted out of being subjected to the back-scatter x-ray device. She has some choice comments about her treatment and about why the TSA exists at all. Your humble host couldn’t agree more with her and has similar stories of degredation and humiliation at the hands of this rogue agency.

Nolan Watson – Renaissance Man Leading The Mining Revival

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Nolan Watson is young but has nonetheless had a storied career in resource development finance and investment. He was CFO of Silver Wheaton a wildly successful royalty investment company. Then he went on to found Sandstrom Gold and Sandstrom Metals and Energy. Their success has been well deserved. They are providing capital to competent mining ventures who have been otherwise shut out of the market. Sandstorm Gold has an extremely disciplined approach to choosing worthy candidates, which has helped lift the stock from 50 cents to $14 in just a few short years. Quite an accomplishment in these trying markets.

Tim Barry – Silver Bull’s CEO Finds A Huge Silver Resource

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Tim Barry, an experienced miner manager, couldn’t believe his luck when he was checking out a zinc mine in Mexico and found a silver resource underneath it, potentially over 100 million ounces! And the story keeps getting better. With each NI 43101 filing, the resource keeps going higher. Tim can barely hide his enthusiasm over the project. Great infrastructure, low cost of recovery and there’s also that zinc resource that will be mined after the silver. While junior explorers are always risky proposition, this one looks like it may have a solid future ahead. Remember, we don’t own it and we don’t recommend it.

Was Arch Crawford Right About Delayed Election / Martial Law?

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Arch Crawford of Crawford Perspectives was on the show in August and September of this year. He stated for the record that he believed that the election would be delayed or cancelled and that martial law would be imposed. To our knowledge, these were the only public interviews he gave out with such specific predictions. He felt that September 30th would be the day that all hell broke loose. Here we are, a month to the day and the Northeast is suffering a Perfect Storm, only this time we’re not worrying about George Clooney getting lost in a fishing boat, we’re talking about 10’s of millions of people suffering widespread power outages and lack of food and basic services.

Could this turn into a nature-driven ‘Reichstag’ event? We all know that this administration is the most lawless on record. Basic constitutional limitations that kept presidents in check for over 200 years seemingly have no affect or power over this Chicago thug based power-crazed group of sociopaths. Don’t think for a second that the president is actually calling the shots. Rather it’s a control group of labor union collectivist types combined with a group of America haters that are driving the Country closer and closer to chaos.

Listen to these interviews and decide for yourself.

Ranting Andy Hoffman – Obama/Romney… What’s The Difference?

from FinancialSurvivalNet

The election is in just a week. The perfect storm is going to hit the East Coast today and the Economic Perfect Storm is coming right after the election. While the elites have kept the markets in near perfect check during the past 6 months, it appears that economic fundamentals are beginning to assert themselves and this is not a positive outcome for the stock market or the economy as a whole. Which is why purchasing gold, silver and food is essential to you and your family’s well-being. All three are readily available now. They are in plentiful supply, but who knows how long that will last for? The time to buy is now.

Pasha Roberts – The Silver Circle Movie Is Released & The War Against The Fed Begins

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We’ve been telling you about the Silver Circle Movie for over a year. Finally, it’s been released and it has exceeded everyone’s expectations. Set in 2016, the US is completely dominated by the Federal Reserve. From the economic life to social experience, life begins and ends at the Fed. However, there’s a group of rebels who are trying to put an end to this form of modern slavery. They produce Silver Circles, an alternative to the ever depreciating fiat currency the Fed lavishes upon the populace. Every conspiracy theory is equally depicted here, from Chemtrails to precious metals confiscation, none are excluded. There’s also a love angle and cause for widespread hope. You don’t want to miss this production by Pasha Roberts, former MIT Quant and movie producer. He and Megan Duffield, along with the rest of the crew, have outdone themselves.

Gary Cope of Orko Silver – Major Silver Property Is Actively Being Shopped

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Orko Silver seemed to hold so much hope for substantial returns. They were in a joint venture with Pan American Silver and the future looked bright. After all, Pan American had spent over $18 million dollars on their resource. But then the unthinkable occurred, Pan American walked away. Orko’s stock collapsed overnight and so did their prospects. We must confess to owning this stock. But now, Orko is back and they’re actively seeking to be acquired. According to management, serious negotiations are underway, which could lead to large returns. Will this merely be another disappointment, or will the their hopes be fulfilled this time out? Stay tuned!

Peter Megaw of Mag Silver – Finding A World Class Resource Is Better Than S*x

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Peter Megaw is a geologist and has spent the past 25 years on the hunt for large precious metals resources. In his role at Mag Silver, it appears that he might just have found the mother load. They’ve got two potential world class projects ready to start production in Mexico. And the world is starting to take notice. The stock just hit a 52 week high, in spite of the recent precious metals’ price instability. No wonder why Peter’s spending more time at the mining camp than in the bedroom. Because as he said, finding and developing a world class mine can be better than sex!

OpenCurrency & Chris Duane Win Big On The New Silver Bullet Silver Shield Medallion

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Gus Demos has long been an advocate of competing currencies. When he urged Chris Duane to design a coin for Chris’s web followers, he had no idea what he was about to unleash. In a little over a month, they’ve sold over 50,000 of these attractive 1 ounce silver coin. They’ve also made a point that silver is really money and that thousands of people are willing to put their fiat money where their mouths are. This is obviously the start of a much larger trend and we’re going to see a lot more from this group.

Ron Hera – The Contrarian’s Contrarian

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Ron Hera is a close friend of FSN. He’s one of the brightest mining stock analysts and economic commentators out there. He’s postulating a new theory, mainly that after four years of near economic collapse, there’s not going to be one. Hyperinflation remains a theoretical concept and the government will simply keep steeling our wealth, indefinitely. His theory follows that as long as the rest of the world is willing to engage in mutually assured currency debasement, gold and silver will go up, but the system will continue on unabated. We do take issue with some of the theory, but believe in the final analysis that n government can avoid economic reality or the will of its people.

Jeff Clark – Casey Research’s Unabashed Silver Bull

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We caught up with Jeff Clark, publisher of Casey Research’s Big Gold after a rousing discussion about where silver is and where it’s heading. The market is so small with so little surplus capacity, that a demand spike could easily result in a major mania. Of course the tree does not grow to the sky, but it can get very tall. Jeff offered a number of scenarios that put silver’s peak price well over $100, approaching several multiples of that. It’s not very difficult to envision these types of situations emerging from the world’s chaotic economic system.

Chris Duane and I have been talking about the demise of the Western Economy, precious metals and the hope for a better world for over a year. During that time we’ve become close friends, but until now, we never met face to face. Chris was invited to speak at the Silver Summit and we finally connected. It’s amazing what the internet has done for personal relationships. There were no awkward introductions, we were just two friends getting together like always. Listen in and hear Chris’s latest insights. And don’t forget to buy the Silver Bullet Silver Shield Coin. The latest design is quite nice and will become a real collector’s item.

Bix Weir – Live From The SIlver Summit In Spokane Washington

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We caught up with Bix Weir during the Silver Summit. He’s made some amazing discoveries about the on-going silver manipulation scheme. HSBC no longer has a precious metals derivatives portfolio. Rather, they’ve been replaced by Citibank. Banks getting into and out of major derivatives schemes is not an every day occurrence. Something major is going on, but unfortunately due to the lack of transparancy and outright fraud taking place in the public markets today, it’s impossible to know what is really taking place. Could this be the long awaited implosion of the market? Possibly, but we’ll have to wait a little while longer to find out.

John Power of Athena Silver Corp. – One Man’s Garbage is Another Man’s Gold

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Imagine a major silver project hiding in plain sight in San Bernadino California. This small company could be sitting on a huge silver deposit. And while we can always argue about the US’s political stability, we can’t argue about infrastructure, labor force quality and the ability to bring the project to market. This company is one that we were very excited to connect with and it could hold large potential. But as you know, junior miners are extremely risky and require a very stringent investment approach. So be sure to do your due diligence and invest wisely.

Welcome To The 10th Annual Silver Summit In Spokane Washington

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We spend literally all of yesterday travelling to the Silver Summit in beautiful wet and cold Spokane Washington. The flights were horrible. Cramped seating, delays, police intervention, you name it. We landed in Denver and it was pouring. Then we witnessed an older man get arrested by the police for punching a flight attendant. The rain quickly turned to snow, in October no less! The airport was completely unprepared and had no de0icing equipment working. From there things got worse quickly and we were stuck for 3.5 hours. Luckily they let us off the plane. Finally we got de-iced, it took an hour. We landed in Spokane at midnight-3am New York time. Got to the hotel, popped an ambien and slept like a dead person till the morning.

Mike Reid – Anything Worth Learning Can’t Be Taught, Especially In A Government School

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Mike Reid of Social Bulldozer took time recently to have a chat with FSN. He said that children are learning machines. Kids learn everything, and not just what we want to teach them. They look for knowledge in any place that they can find it. However, now the United Nations wants to mandate authority-based education: the system that has worked so well in the US. This means that children in developing countries will be forced to learn in centralized factory-type facilities. They will be prevented from working, thereby limiting their workplace knowledge. When the state monopolizes their education, it sabotages the creative process that children thrive on. Mike believes that the key to truly higher education lies in privatizing schools, allowing children to learn in the workplace, and recognizing that different kids learn differently.

Ranting Andy on ‘Gold as Money’ and What to Do Now to Protect Yourself Before It’s Too Late

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Ranting Andy Hoffman joined us for his famous Monday Rant. We discussed the issue of record US gold exports. This statistic confirmed what we all knew and that is that the US is getting poorer by the day. While we may no longer be on a gold standard, some parts of the world do consider this “barbarous relic” to have certain universal monetary characteristics, that not even the US Government can change. And it is those very same countries that have been on a precious metals buying spree for the past 10 years. And while we’re on the topic of who’s got the gold, Germany’s high court just ordered an audit of all their off-shore holdings. The results could be interesting. What’s your thought?

Triple Lutz Report #214 – DollarCollapse.com Questions Coming Debt Jubilee Meme

from FinancialSurvivalNet

John Rubino, a long term friend of the show, penned an interesting article today about a coming Debt Jubilee Meme. He questions whether it would be enough to restart economic growth and whether it would actually solve any of the problems we are now facing. Respectfully, we believe that John isn’t fully considering the purpose of the jubilee. In and of itself, it will not bring on economic prosperity. Rather, it will help end or limit the rampant malinvestment that is occurring due to the Fed/Treasury’s desire to keep the financial system afloat. Negative real interest rates, non-risk adjusted interest rates and excess creation of currency units are certainly more destructive to growth than simply acknowledging what we already know, which is that the cumulative debt can never be paid back and it is rapidly becoming unservicable.

Triple Lutz Report #213 – The Election Has Been Over For Months… Romney

from FinancialSurvivalNet

I always say that we don’t follow politics on FSN and yet here we are again discussing the election. However, what this is really about is an effort to shape your reality by bombarding you with propaganda about the inevitability of Obama’s victory. However, while the elites are often capable of molding events and therefore reality, to their wishes, they can’t do it on so mass a scale as an election. Not when their horse has an awful record and has proven himself to be incompetent and unqualified on dozens of occasions. And not when there’s a challenger who’s so far ahead of Obama intellectually that they don’t even belong on the same stage. But remember, they’re all liars, they will cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and every other program necessary to their agenda. No matter who wins.

Yaron Brook – No Master Debaters Last Night

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Dr. Yaron Brook of the estimable Ayn Rand Institute was with us to share his take on the latest Presidential debates. And while he feels that Romney is the nominally better candidate, neither of them are winning any awards for free market economics or an intricate understanding of why the Free Market is the answer to what ails America and the World. Obama is a collectivist/statist and Romney is a pragmatist/statist, so choose your poison. Unfortunately, the US will have to again learn the hard way that no other systems works like a free economy in a free world.

Danielle Park – The World According To Danielle Park

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Danielle Park believes it’s time for all the parties to come together and build a consensus and start agreeing on solutions to our common problems. Compromise is the key to finding common solutions, but first there must be an agreement that the current problem is dire and cannot be solved otherwise. The US and the World are facing a bankruptcy of unprecedented proportions. If the governments do not have an immediate reality check, the result is going to be catastrophic and every individual will suffer.
