Jeb Handwerger – The Junior Miners Will Rise

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Jeb Handwerger of Gold Stock Trades believes the junior mining sector is grossly undervalued. He sees the large miners gobbling them up at extremely attractive prices. There are some indications that it has already begun with Yamana Gold’s acquistion of Extorre Gold Mine as the start of a major trend. In addition, there appears to be a trend of rising mining nationalism, which should lead investors to jurisdictions that are politically safe. And of course the junior miners have been in a secular bear market, which has seen their prices decimated. Therefore, Jeb could be right in his assessment. When the much awaited run-up in the miners will start, should be answered quite soon.

Students For Liberty at Freedom Fest – Staying Out Of Debt

from FinancialSurvivalNet

This year I again encountered a remarkable group of young people who understood that going to college and racking up $200,000 to “earn” a useless degree makes no sense. They are committed to getting the word out to their generation that Socialism is the great enslaver and that freedom and the free market are the only means of re-establishing prosperity and the American Dream. Seeing young people who’ve done the intellectual heavy lifting and have come to understand that Austrian Economics is a system that has worked in the past and will work again in the future is quite refreshing.

James Corbett Interviews Kerry Lutz About World Financial Turmoil (Part 2)

from FinancialSurvivalNet

James Corbett of The Corbett Report interviewed your humble host yesterday. I thought I was a fairly good interviewer, but James has obviously been doing it much longer than I, and he is a consumate professional. I was quite flattered to have been invited onto his show. We discussed central banking, the history of economic collapses, the corrupt monetary system and a whole lot more. While we agree on most things, the major point we differ on is limited government versus anarchy. I’ll admit, the current system of government is enough to make anyone start longing for anarchy, but I just don’t believe it’s a workable system.

Ann-Marie Murrell – A Politichick Who’s Armed and Extremely UnCompassionate

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We were very fortunate to get together with Ann-Marie Murrell of PolitiChicks.tv to discuss her recent article in Townhall.com about her realization that the best thing you can do for the homeless is not be one of them. Ann-Marie is a stellar example of what an individual can accomplish. At one time in her life, she was living on in a relative’s garage, inflating an air mattress to create space between her body and the concrete floor. Now she’s a pre-eminent voice for fiscal and governmental sanity. If she lived in a state that valued individual rights and freedom, this would be admirable, but she lives in the People’s State of California, and she refuses to leave for freer pastures. The fact that someone like Ann-Marie is intent on staying and fighting for all of our rights is an example that I personally find inspiring and hopeful.

John Aziz of Azizonomics – It’s Inevitable and It’s Right For The World

from FinancialSurvivalNet

John Aziz, based in the UK, was an English Major who discovered he had a flare for economics, especially the Austrian variety. After the Crash of 2008, he went looking for answers and found them. His ability as a writer and a communicator is nearly unparalleled in the Blogosphere. He has the unique ability to take very complicated concepts and simply them in a manner that can be understood by people of all educational levels. His insights and skills are helping to get the word out. People are starting to understand what caused the economic collapse and what the alternatives are for getting out of it. And there’s only three real choices: 1) Keep praying and printing; 2) Default and repudiate or 3) Forgive the debt or a debt jubilee. There are no other options for dealing with an over indebted financial system. So the next time you hear a politician claiming otherwise, understand that he’s lying to you.

Zero Hedge’s Michael Krieger – There’s Something Big Headed Straight For Us

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Michael Krieger of Liberty BlitzKrieg and frequent ZeroHedge contributor joined us for a deep and often intense interview. The efforts to make the Western World a cashless society is merely aimed at giving the money printers more control over your life. The monetary metals suppression scheme has kicked into high gear, leading both Michael and myself to conclude that there are big events planned, just over the horizon. Trying to see and identify these trends is what both of us spend an inordinate amount of time and energy doing. While it is often not a productive use, sometimes you see things that the elitists would prefer you didn’t. And this global event, we’re not yet sure what it is, is going to be major. Somehow, while being a life altering event, it’s designed to keep the elitists in power behind the curtain. You have to realize that even though most of us focus on the economy, the elitist power structure touches all phases of your life, what you eat, where you live, what you drive, what shows you watch on television. Their power to influence and even control numerous aspects of society is hanging in the balance. This is why ZeroHedge is a must read for me everyday.

Ken Johnson – Getting A Second Passport Has Never Been Easier

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Ken Johnson of The Dollar Vigilante Media Services is an expert in helping you get a second passport and becoming a citizen of another country. Dual citizenship has many lawful uses. Right now, as an American, your government has gone around the world stopping foreign banks and brokerage houses from allowing you to open accounts and to transact legal business abroad. This is part of the de facto scheme to implement currency restrictions and controls without having to formally announce it to the world. This is why Ken’s service can be so valuable to those wishing to internationalize their assets in a totally legal and accepted manner.

Mickey Fulp – Lake Erie Once Again Safe From Becoming A Fire Hazard

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Mickey Fulp, The Mercenary Geologist, and I got together for an energy discussion. There’s so much going on in this once conservative moribund industry. The innovations of hydro-fracking and enhanced recovery are leading to an energy self-sufficient America, only 40 years after Nixon’s pledge. Right now, the US domestically produces 55 percent of its energy needs. It’s miraculous that an industry faced with hostile government agencies, green subsidies and general public antipathy towards petroleum exploration and development. Many people believe that the industry has deliberately stifled high mileage vehicles and auto technology, and this could very well be true. However, America’s retaking of energy production leadership is something that no talking head or so-called energy expert ever predicted. All that is necessary to ride this wave to making America great again is political leadership and a commitment to fast-tracking energy infrastructure projects.

Daniel Amerman – Financial Repression: What Will Your Gold Really Be Worth?

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Daniel Amerman used to work with Mortgage Backed Securities, before they became a tool of the devil. He believes the government will stop at nothing to steal the populace’s wealth, but there are things that you can do to protect yourself. However, it will become increasingly difficult to do so once things get worse. Daniel believes owning gold and silver is a good option, but there are certain things the government will do to diminish their value. How the end game of this crisis will work out is anyone’s guess, but things are definitely going to change, and you need to examine every possible outcome.

Gary Johnson – Libertarian for President – Proven Budget Cutter From New Mexico

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We met up with Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico and present Libertarian candidate for President. Gary was a former governor of New Mexico. During his two terms in office, of an overwhelmingly Democrat state, he vetoed 750 bills and exercised thousands of line item vetos. He was so effective that his opposition referred to him as Governor Veto. He ran for the Republican nomination this year, but he was kept out of the early debates by CNN and CNBC rules, which were created to keep out minor candidates. As a result, he never attained the status of serious candidate as far as the Main Stream Media was concerned. While his odds of winning the nomination are virtually non-existent, his message is compelling, and he has provided a road map for other fiscally sane candidates to shake things up.

Wayne Allyn Root – America Is A Nation Of Gamblers and Gunslingers

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Wayne Allyn Root, former Libertarian VP candidate, renowned Las Vegas odds maker, successful businessman, SOB (son of a butcher), and fellow Westchesterite and I met up in person Freedom Fest in Las Vegas. While he’s not head-over-heals in love with Romney (who is?), he still believes that the choice is between business and anti-business, and that’s why he’s favoring Romney. Business without risk, is like religion without Hell. If the government removes all possible risks from your life, will you be a better person or a lazier one? Wayne believes that risk taking is in the American DNA, and it’s a prime reason for our country’s success. This is why Wayne never misses a Freedom Fest.

“Ranting” Andy Hoffman – Priceless Metals or Worthless Dollars, Take Your Pick

from FinancialSurvivalNet

“Ranting” Andy Hoffman arrived back from Freedom Fest in Las Vegas ready for “bear.” There’s a new phenomena sweeping the globe, negative interest rates. Hard to believe, but that’s where some bankrupt, “Too Big To Fail Bank” actually charges you for the honor of storing your money and betting it on derivatives (or some other highly creative way they’ve devised to lose your money and get bailed out yet again.) It’s obvious there’s no end to the financial sector insanity that’s been taking place around the globe. Where it will end is anyone’s guess. But nothing makes sense anymore and that’s exactly the way the Elite financial rulers like it.

Jeff Berwick & Gary Gibson (Live At Freedom Fest) – Getting Ready For The Final Collapse

from FinancialSurvivalNet

I interviewed Jeff Berwick and Gary Gibson at Freedom Fest, separately, although you’d think they were together. We spent a lot of time together, and there was no shortage of topics and alternative financial luminaries present at the conference. Peter Schiff, Doug Casey, Steve Forbes, Gary Johnson, Judge Andrew Napolitano and so many more. But Gary and Jeff are all about practical advice about protecting your wealth and keeping it out of the hands of the government. Jeff’s a big proponent of second passports, and Gary’s been travelling around the world looking for safe harbor. Either way, they both agree the US Government’s appetite for your wealth is going to increase greatly, as the depression deepens. So better to be prepared than to continue about your daily affairs, blind to the probabilities ahead.

Andy Schectman – There Is No Secondary Gold Market; Buy Now Before Its Too Late

from FinancialSurvivalNet

At Freedom Fest 2012 we bumped into Andy Schectman, a show sponsor and President of Miles Franklin. He’s been selling shiny metals since 1990, and he’s extremely knowledgeable about the precious metals markets. Andy explained there’s virtually no gold coming into the secondary market. People who own gold and silver are not selling even when prices dip. This is a relatively new development which shows that while the price may fluctuate , the actual participants ignore the news and continue to accumulate. The mints don’t have enormous supplies available for purchase; they can hardly keep up with demand. That’s why putting off the purchase of metals could have you entering the market at the worst possible moment. Contact Miles Franklin, they’ve also got great overseas storage programs available.

Trace Mayer – BitCoin The People’s New World Currency

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We literally bumped into Trace Mayer of www.HowToVanish.com and www.RunToGold.com. He made it to Vegas for Freedom Fest. We discussed a very interesting new phenomena that may possibly become the new gold standard of currencies, BitCoin. This is an open source currency that is extremely flexible, resistant to inflation and completely anonymous. It is a store of wealth and a medium of exchange and its popularity appears to be rapidly increasing. We had heard of it before, but dismissed it as a noble effort to help people escape the tyranny of central banks. But it has continued on and increased in value from 5 cents per BitCoin to $7.70 in just a few short years. And its acceptance appears to be increasing as well. It’s spreading worldwide, with more and more merchants accepting it as payment, at a variety of locations. We’re going to investigate the BitCoin phenomena further and report back.

Peter Schiff (Live at Freedom Fest 2012) – Socialism is the Problem – Capitalism Is The Solution

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We caught up with our old friend Peter Schiff at Freedom Fest. While he was on a panel, security was sicked on Doug Casey for smoking a cigar (Cubano of course) while participating on stage. Freedom took a major hit when Doug was forced to extinguish his rich stogie. But as Doug said, he was on someone else’s property, so he had to comply with the management’s wishes. I want to know who the Buzzkill was that turned him in.

Peter made the case for limited government and eliminated socialism in his usual eloquent manner. Too Big To Fail Banks are not the product of capitalism, but socialism. Capitalism never failed, as it has been utilized in the US for many years. Eventually, the lesson will have to be learned if we are ever to have prosperity again and that’s why Peter trudges on.

John Schmidt (Live at Freedom Fest 2012) – A Pool Pro’s Guide To Real Money

from FinancialSurvivalNet

John Schmidt has been shooting pool since he turned 18. He won the US Pool Open in 2006. He’s known as Mr. 400, having sunk 400 balls in a row, without a miss. He believes in learning from the masters and he carries that attitude through when it comes to investing and preserving his wealth in precious metals. Initially, his fellow competitors scoffed at the notion of a fiat currency collapse. But as the world gets closer and closer to this cataclysmic event, more of his colleagues have accepted his wisdom. John’s got a great story and a winning attitude.

Rick Rule (Live At Freedom Fest 2012) – Be A Contrarian or Be A Victim

from FinancialSurvivalNet

We caught up with Sprott’s Rick Rule in Las Vegas at Freedom Fest 2012. He’s not the least bit concerned about the precious metals price gyrations, and he’s actively buying metals for his personal portfolio. He believes that Contrarian investors eventually score the largest gains but that it takes guts and a lot of perseverance. Joe “Two-Pack” better have both or he should buy another can of beer and hit the road. Rick’s got one of the best jobs around; he’s doing what he loves and as a result has never worked a day in his life. Just don’t ask him about tech investing, he’s sticking to what he knows best.

Ranting Andy Hoffman and I caught up with each other at Freedom Fest 2012 in Las Vegas. Besides life imitating reality TV, the fraud and the refusal to see what’s really going on in the world, Andy was helping to educate a financial planner from North Carolina on the ills of the fiat money system and how the world each day gets closer to the precipice. And yes, Mrs. Hoffman still watches House Hunters and loves every minute. Perhaps that’s the key, we all know its fake, but it’s fun so why not?

Nick Santiago – He’s Been Saying It For Months – Gold Will Shine In The Fall

from FinancialSurvivalNet

If it’s one thing we like on FSN, its consistency and Nick Santiago, of In The Money Stocks is nothing if not consistent. From our first interview, he’s been certain that gold and silver would stay in their corrections until the Fall of 2012. Twice in the past two weeks it looked like gold was ready to break out, and both times, the rallies were quickly put down. But we’re getting to the point where it’s print or die, and faced with such choices, the Fed will always print. It’s in their charter, not really, but it should be. The elitists specialize in obfuscation and trying to get the public to sell any investment at the worst possible moment. And this time’s no different. Patience in this market is certainly a virtue.

Danielle Park – The Financial World is Not The Real World

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Danielle Park joined us today for the Park Perspective. The tales of corruption and exploitation in the financial sector keep getting worse and worse. From fixing the LIBOR interest rates to laundering money for drug cartels, is there anything the financial sector won’t do to make a buck? But Danielle believes that there’s an end coming to the bailouts, and it will be soon. The immorality of the system and it’s destructive influences are becoming plain to everyone’s sight. The question is, how will change come from outside the system, to rebuild it and make it honest and beneficial to society? Perhaps, events will soon unfold that make it impossible for the financial system to continue its business as usual ways, and it will become a matter of reform or die.

Teresa Kuhn – This Is Not Your Grandfather’s Retirement

from FinancialSurvivalNet

I was interviewed recently by Teresa Kuhn of Living Wealthy Radio. We discussed the state of our current economy and the fact that most people are completely unprepared for the changes that are about to hit, especially the “Baby Boomers” who are getting set to retire shortly. Besides the fact that there isn’t enough Social Security or Medicare funds to go around, private pensions have either been eliminated or greatly reduced. This means that the individual will be responsible for financing a larger share of their retirement than ever before. And where’s the money going to come from anyway? The fact is that for most “Boomers” they will never experience the luxury of retirement, whether they want to or not. Many will be forced to live with their children. Others will suffer greatly. It’s time to except the new reality and start planning.

“Ranting” Andy Hoffman – When Will Your ATM Stop Working?

from FinancialSurvivalNet

“Ranting” Andy doesn’t believe in coincidences, just like FDR didn’t, and just like I don’t. Bank “glitches” seem to be multiplying and spreading across the globe. Has the system been compromised or have the banks just run out of money? Either way, the situation appears to be worsening and nobody is talking about it. Seems like it’s not being covered by the Main Stream Media or anyone else. Why would that be? The truth needs to be told now, not after the collapse.

Triple Lutz Report #199 – Debt Jubilee 2012 – Our Only Hope

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Forgiveness of debts, as well as sins, is specifically addressed in the Bible. The Book of Leviticus provides that every 25-50 years there will be a Jubilee, where all slaves and prisoners are freed, sins and debts are foregiven and property returned. Later Pope Boniface VIII decreed that a Jubilee shall take place every 50 years, and that extraordinary Jubilees would be decreed when necessary. If ever there was a time when the world needed an extraordinary Jubilee, it’s now! Debt, at all levels of society, keeps going higher and higher with no end in sight. Currency units are now produced with reckless abandon. And to what purpose? It’s all part of an effort to solve the greatest debt crisis in history, by going more into debt. Doesn’t sound like it’s going to work out very well. Whereas, in a Jubilee, we could eliminate all debt or most it, in one act, thus dramatically reduce prison populations by releasing non-violent offenders and saving billions.

Eventually, the world’s leaders will realize that there isn’t another way out and will be forced to go back to their religious routes to find the solution.

Professor Nick Economides of NYU – Greek and European Debt Can Be Managed By Growth

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Professor Nick Economides touched base with the Financial Survival Network today from Athens, Greece. Forgive the sound quality, the economy isn’t the Greek’s only problem. Prof. Economides foresaw the Euro’s problems many years ago, before most others. So while, we may not agree that growth is the cureall for the world’s collapsing economic system, it is important that we to listen to the informed few who knew saw what was coming, before all the “Johnny Come Lately’s.” However, there is a growing chorus people around the world, who believe that the debt is just to large to be managed and the underlying problem must be addressed.

Prof. Economides says that the situation in Greece is currently calm. He believes further austerity measures will be implemented and that there is little chance that Greece will go back to the drachma. He thinks this would be an unmitigated disaster. And he may well be correct.

Ty Andros – Liborgate: A Basis Point Here, A Basis Point There, Pretty Soon We’re Talking Real Money

from FinancialSurvivalNet

Ty Andros joined us for another weekly wrap after a brief summer hiatus. Liborgate is the word on everyone’s lips these days. Seems the governments and central banks have been rigging the LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) market for years. Over $700 trillion in loans, securities, and derivatives get priced according to this key rate. Why it’s coming out now is anyone’s guess, but it seems to this untrained observer as if there’s alot more coming down the pike that’s even worse. Not to mention the fact that Spain’s banks haven’t really been bailed out, despite the headlines to the contrary.

Off to California where the governor, who’s been detached from reality for many years, has decided it’s time to condemn through eminent domain, all the non-federal mortgages on the books in the Golden State and sell them off to hedge funds around the world, to bail out the underwater homeowners. While it may sound a bit like a juibilee as mentioned in the Bible, somehow, we don’t recall the hedge funds playing a role. Then all those silver shorts belong to none other than JP Morgan-Chase, according to noted silver analyst Ted Butler. What else is going on that matters any more?

Triple Lutz Report #198 – Happy July 4th & My Trip to The Reagan Library

from FinancialSurvivalNet

It’s July 4th, the day we celebrate our country’s independence from England. While this country was founded on the concept of individual liberty, the individual’s sovereignty and limited government, things have changed quite a bit, to say the least. But we still have much to be grateful for and we need to find ways to become more independent from petty bureaucrats like Nanny Bloomberg who wants to control your entire life. That’s why I highly recommend a trip to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in beautiful Simi Valley, CA. The Library sits atop a high point over looking the Valley and it feels like it was created for this man’s memorial. The entire tour is touching, moving and a tribute to a real leader, who may have used a teleprompter, but didn’t really need one. It made me long for the days when people were optimistic and believed in something. But, if we all assert our own personal independence those days will return.

Mickey Fulp – Monthly Market Review: The Markets Are In Flux; Come Back In September

from FinancialSurvivalNet

June was a volatile month. Everything was getting killed until the 29th, when boom, gold, silver, etc., all came roaring back to life. Mickey and I believe that the summer will provide much of the same in most markets, with little actually getting accomplished in the real world. People are far too busy planning vacations. going to the beach and just generally chilling out, to be fixated upon the value of the dollar, the price of gold or natural gas. Of course, the summer is always a great time to be a market manipulator, what with generally low volume and thinly traded markets. One of the biggest surprises in June was natural gas which traded up to $2.76. T. Boone Pickens, a very savvy investor and “Oil man”, is predicting $115 oil and $3.75 natural gas by the end of 2012. At this point in the evolution or devolution of Western Civilization, nothing would surprise us.
