Dave Bego – The Unions Are Coming

from Financial Survival Network

Dave Bego says that recent actions by the UAW demonstrate the desperation of the labor bosses to reverse declining membership. From a peak of 1.52 million in 1979, the UAW today represents fewer than 400,000 (see UAW Saw an Opening with Honda’s Arrival). Obviously, the UAW realizes they are in serious trouble, but instead of changing tactics and providing a service that benefits employers and members alike, as their counterparts in Germany do, they continue to utilize the same bullying tactics that have gotten them into trouble. What’s the definition of “insanity?” Doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results. It appears insanity and desperation have become entrenched in big labor.

Carl Schramm – They Had To Kill The Healthcare Industry To Save It

from Financial Survival Network

Carl Schramm is one of the world’s leading thinkers on entrepreneurship, innovation and economic growth. The Economist has referred to him as the “evangelist of entrepreneurship.” Government control of health care has long been the central goal of the progressive project. The idea can be traced back to the efforts of the American Association of Labor Legislation. In the progressive worldview, nationalizing health care has always been about expanding the power of central government. Obamacare, too, has grander objectives. It seeks to redistribute wealth by shifting program costs to younger, healthier individuals. In the name of efficiency, it restricts medical innovation and sets in place the means to restrict care for the elderly.

Rob Hanus – What’s Next For The Economy, And How To Survive It

from Financial Survival Network

We talked at length with Rob Hanus on what the upcoming trends are for the world economy, the US economy and what you need to be doing to survive them. You already know that employment is still trending down, the government’s power and control over the economy and your life is rapidly expanding and things could get out of hand very quickly. Rob understands basic survival and has been prepping for many years. Economic prepping is definitely part of the equation as well. The clock is ticking, it’s time to get ready. Get prepared. And by the way, switchblade knives are legal in many states, even New York (for hunting, fishing and trapping).

Bob Hoye – Collapse Of Central Banking Is On The Way

from Financial Survival Network

We talked with Bob Hoye today. He believes that the long awaited collapse of central banking will soon be here. The end of the bull market of centralized control is coming. The government will no longer be able to inflate credit to create currency to pay the costs of its control apparatus. This can only be a plus for humanity. He believes it will also cause the end of the fraud of man made global warming, which based on the recent weather in New York and across the nation seems to be false, or as Bob said, “Is complete bull.”

Richard Ruhling MD – Restore Your Health Without Drugs

from Financial Survival Network

Dr. Richard Ruhling believes that prescription drugs are needlessly killing hundreds of thousands of people across the country and the world.

You can do it on your own without using any prescription drugs. So what are you waiting for?

Triple Lutz Report #325 – The Real Reasons For America’s Decline

from Financial Survival Network

We discuss an article by noted Washington Post socialist columnist Harvey Mayerson about the decline of America and the American Worker. His reasons include the decline of unionism, globalisation, financialisation and Jack Welch. Our reasons, debasement of the currency, abandonment of the gold standard, debasement of morality and socialism. And then of course there’s the continuing implosion of Obamacare and the fact that for every person who’s signed up for Obamacare, there’s 13 people who have had their health insurance cancelled. That’s a real success. Cell phone carriers are cashing in on snooping and Harvard bans single use water bottles and the fraud of recycling.

Bill Murphy – 2013: The Year of Bitcoin

from Financial Survival Network

We caught up with our old friend Bill Murphy of Gata.org. He believes that the latest budget deal in Congress is motivated by fear. They have perhaps the lowest approval rating in the nation and for good reason. As Mark Twain said, they’re a permanent criminal underclass. Bitcoin has blasted off to the moon making many early entrants rich, while gold and silver have been totally suppressed. Bill is looking forward to seeing many of you at the Liberty Mastermind Symposium on February 21-22 in Las Vegas.

Ned Schmidt – The Gold Bear Is Dying An Unglorious Death

from Financial Survival Network

We caught up with Ned Schmidt today. This gold bear has gray hair, its teeth falling out, has bad eyesight, joints are hurting after two years. It’s highly unlikely that the sector can go any lower. The gold mining sector has probably hit bottom. The number of mining stocks hitting lows has probably hit bottom. The Chinese economy is on the upswing too. Rather than raising taxes and increasing regulation like the United States, they are cutting regulations and taxes to stimulate the economy. The non-grains are very strong. Beef prices are going up until March or April. Cotton is going up. The grains are down right now until early spring. Ned is a major supporting of GMO foods. He believes they’re extremely important to increasing crop yields and animal production for the sake of feeding humanity.

Darryl R. Schoon – Why Gold Is Going Down: The System Is Being Kept Alive On Steroids and Meth

from Financial Survival Network

Darryl R. Schoon explains why the price of gold has been going down recently. He likens the recent decline in the price of gold to the decline that took place during the 2008-09. Governments were active sellers during that time as they have been recently. The system is being kept alive on steroids and methamphetamine. The country owes so much money that and has so little gold that there’s no saving the system. Gold and silver is the only thing that can save you.

James Goodale – Administration Declares War On The Press

from Financial Survival Network

James Goodale was the attorney on the Pentagon Papers Case during the Nixon Administration. While things were bad then, he never expected to see things get to point that they’re at now. Reporters houses are raided at midnight, their phones are tapped and everyone’s emails are scanned and who knows what else is taking place? The way things are headed, the Bill of Rights are becoming mere footnotes to the Constitution. What will happen when the next administration takes power?

Triple Lutz Report #324 – Hope For Communist New York City: The Return Of Bill Bratton

from Financial Survival Network

New York City did the unthinkable and elected self-admitted Communist/Collectivist Bill DiBlasio. However, he knows that he’s under the gun and that New Yorkers will not accept a return to the lawless days of his mentor David Dinkins. Therefore, faced with the choice of watching the crime rate go up and seeing his administration tank, DiBlasio chose the one man who could bolster his crime fighting bona fides, former police commissioner William Bratton. We chronicle Bratton’s history and why DiBlasio will eventually rue the day he made this choice.

Barry Stuppler – New Phenomena: Tax Loss Selling Of Precious Metals

from Financial Survival Network

Barry Stuppler was on today telling us about a trend taking place this year. After 13 years of profits in precious metals, 2013 was the first down year. Investors had large profits in the stock market and real estate and are selling off their precious metal holdings to realize losses to minimize their 2013 tax bill. Their intent is to repurchase their holdings after 31 days. Not a bad strategy if the timing holds out, “if” being the operative phrase.

Triple Lutz Report #323 – Detroit’s Bankruptcy is a Go… as Predicted by FSN

from Financial Survival Network

As Predicted by FSN months ago, Bankruptcy Court Judge Steven Rhodes has give Detroit’s bankruptcy filing a green-light. More importantly, he has ruled that the city’s pensioners can receive a haircut to their monthly payments, although it will be subject to the Court’s oversight and care must be taken to see that it is kept to an absolute minimum. Judge Rhodes said that Detroit is broke and should have filed years ago. Wonder why they didn’t? Expect a rush of towns, cities, counties and other governmental entities to file in the coming years. This decision, while bad for municipal pensioners across the country is a lifeline for the taxpayers.

Ed Steer – Are The Bullion Banks Finally Long Gold?

from Financial Survival Network

We caught up with Ed Steer of Casey Research Gold & Silver Daily. Today saw a big move in gold and silver. Ed believes that the bullion banks have turned bullish on precious metals and have gone long. He believes that one Sunday very soon, da boyz will get together in a formerly smoke filled room and rewrite the rules of the monetary game. There will then be two types of players, those who have the gold and those who don’t, so you better decide which team you want to play on now. For those in the formerly free states of America, it’s going to be tough sledding. Better start looking off-shore now before it’s too late. Once this happens, Ed intends to hang up his keyboard and begin a long and happy retirement.

Ralph De Costa Nunez – NY Mayor Bill DiBlasio Is a Breath Of Fresh Air

from Financial Survival Network

Ralph De Costa Nunez believes that newly elected openly socialist mayor Bill DiBlasio is a breath of fresh air. He’s tired of Mayor Michale Nanny Bloomberg and his circle of sycophants. Ralph thinks that fears of DiBlasio’s far left leanings are probably overblown and that he won’t be another Dinkins. That remains to be seen, but early signs are not encouraging. His calls for universal Pre-K and his soak the rich demands give one pause for thought.

Danielle Park – Perma-Bulls Are Running Rampant On Wall Street

from Financial Survival Network

Danielle Park joined us for our bi-weekly chat. The perma-bulls are running roughshod over Wall Street, as usual. However, Danielle has run the numbers and when you see the performance that they’ve turned in over the past decade, they’ve come up wanting in every respect. Their overall return has been pathetic. But don’t expect them to fess up. They’ll tell you that their numbers have been astounding, but that’s not the truth. Danielle believes that new bubbles are being blown and that they will pop at some point in the not too distant future. The key is not to be there when it happens.

Kenton Toews – Thinning The Herd: Miners Bite The Dust

from Financial Survival Network

Sprott Global’s Kenton Toews believes that the recent carnage in the mining sector will eventually lead to a healthier industry. Only the strong will survive and this will lead to a much more profitable sector in the long run. Getting there is the problem and many companies are perishing in process. Kenton says to look for companies that are cash rich and where management has voluntarily cut their salaries. These companies are in it for the long haul and they will survive.

Nick Barisheff – He Is Still Convinced That Gold Is Going To $10,000 Per Ounce

from Financial Survival Network

Nick Barisheff is an unrepentant gold bull. He sees the fundamentals shaping up to propel gold to $10,000 and above. He also sees China ready to supplant the US Dollar as the reserve currency. Also he sees the demise of the petro Dollar happening sometime in the near future as well. As of now, gold has reverted in value to the dollar around $1230 per ounce, it’s hard to see how the US can fix it’s budget issues and how debt creation can slow. Gold and silver are really the only way to secure one’s wealth going into the uncertain future.

Dave Stevens – Watch Out For Meteors and Comets

from Financial Survival Network

Do you know that you’re more likely to be killed by an asteroid than by lightening? Hard to believe but true. Collisions from outer space represent a significant but under-appreciated threat to mankind’s survival. Commander Dave Stevens is a behind a movement that is trying to get governments around the world to recognize these potential threats and to mobilize and head them off before they become existential. A giant black comet was just found. It’s actually intersecting earth’s orbit in three months, but fortunately isn’t a threat.
