    Big Al, it is my opinion that the founders of this nation were raised up by God to bring to pass a land of liberty. They were wise beyond many people’s understanding. The founders warned us about the very things we are experiencing today, such as the problem of party politics, entangling alliances, making anything but gold and silver our money, the need for constant vigilance to maintain liberty, and on and on. They likewise warned us that this nation and the constitution particularly, are only viable with a moral society. Without morality among the people at large and with the leaders in particular, this constitution would not work as intended. Sadly, our culture and society have departed from the morality and constitutional principles that made this nation great over the years. It has largely happened in a very steady and subtle fashion because we as citizens have not been vigilant as Jefferson warned. This land still has the potential to rise back to the principles which made it great, but only if the citizens will exercise their power to put things back to the way they should be and then only if the citizens themselves are adequately educated as to how these principles were intended to operate along with a return to eternal moral principles. We need an awakening both constitutionally and spiritually. It is something we as individuals and families must accomplish then have it spread to communities and eventually the nation. Some of my ancestors were signers of the Declaration of Independence and many fought to support it. I feel sad that so great a sacrifice by them and many since has been squandered by so many. The fourth of July should return to our hearts the blessings of liberty and gratitude for the countless individuals who gave their all that we might have what we have. John Adams stated that they gave us a republic if we can keep it and if not, he would rue the fact that he gave half as much effort to give it to us. I hope we can do the founders proud by returning to the morality and principles they struggled to give us, for I do not want to meet them in the next life having not done my part to keep it. Just a thought.

        Civil liberty follows the breaking of sin’s dominion in our lives through Jesus Christ. You need to get a new worldview born of repentance, a worldview that acknowledges the supreme reality. Until then, you deceive yourself and others.

          You guys, I am not saying the US isnt a better place to live than some places.

          I am saying the U.S. has never come close to achieveing any form of liberty.

          Do people understand the meaning of liberty?

          Media telling people repeatedly that the nation is “great”, the military is wonderful,the U.S. is exceptional etc etc seems to keep people from understaning what liberty actually is. Propoganda works.

          I am all for Liberty. its too bad it doesnt exist and was never achieved.

          It seems “liberty” has always just been a ruse to control people.

          People need to understand the word liberty so they can stop being so easily decieved.

          The only way to own a slave and spout liberty is to be a psychopath.
          The only way to tout liberty and comit genocide is to be a psychopath.
          The only way to to give speeches about liberty, call invasions “enduring freedom” and bomb people for their own good, is to be a psychopath.

          None of it has anything to do with liberty. It has to do with a sickness.
          And the people are so,so,so brainwashed, they fall for it.

          Maybe we deserve to be ruled.

          Anyway, so much for liberty, an interesting show today guys.

            Thank you for clarifying. I don’t think that liberty has always been a ruse to control people, but I agree that our leaders have found ways to make use of it for their own ends. Meanwhile, our real liberties are being diminished.
            We are all imperfect people. Imperfect people can only build imperfect nations.

            There are two kinds of liberty, one true, one false. Even Obama knows the difference. False liberties include unlimited porn, legalized pot, rampant sexual immorality, drunkenness, etc. all vices which can be “enjoyed” in a 6×8 cell. True liberty is being allowed to own property (not pay property taxes) and politely refuse to bake a cake for perverts. Obama and his ilk are trading us the false for the true.

      • On July 2, 2016 at 9:35 am,
        pardu says:

        You are correct that the kind of liberty sought for was not yet in place. The majority of the founders recognized the wrongness of slavery, but to create the republic and the constitution, they had to compromise with the southern states, with the clear intent, agreed to by the south, that the issue of slavery would be resolved over a certain amount of time, originally 20 years, which did not occur. It was George Mason of Virginia who clearly chastised the southern states during the constitutional debate that “slavery is a moral issue” when the southern states said it was not. Mason warned the south that if they did not remedy this issue, there would be a price to be paid in the future. The civil war was the catalyst in the end owing to the failure of the southern states to make good their intent to do away with slavery over 20 years. Though the perfect scenario has yet to be created, the founders saw the possibility of striving for such as much as fallible man could endure. the true principles set forth in the founding documents, though not fully realized, are worth striving for. We could use some of the statesmanship demonstrated by the founders in putting forth the good of the country above their own personal gain. Personal power and gain are all to prevalent in Washington today and little is done for the good of the country it seems.

      • On July 2, 2016 at 9:48 am,
        Jay Linn says:

        B, at the time of American Revolution, virtually everyone in the world was under a slavery of some kind. The fact you are not a slave right now, you gotta thank the Founders of USA and the Republican party that freed your ancestors. Think about it, B. You weren’t born a free citizen of USA based on your own efforts. There were other people who paid for your freedom. That is the message of July 4th.

          Stoned drivers are a lot safer than drunk ones, new federal data show

          A new study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration finds that drivers who use marijuana are at a significantly lower risk for a crash than drivers who use alcohol. And after adjusting for age, gender, race and alcohol use, drivers who tested positive for marijuana were no more likely to crash than who had not used any drugs or alcohol prior to driving.

          Good point on the THC, CFS. Cannabis bred for high CBD has amazing medicinal properties: anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory, and protects the liver. I gather there are also anti-cancer properties, but haven’t looked into it yet.

          One can get these benefits without the high and paranoia of the THC, with properly bred plants.

            True enough, but people will put themselves into an altered state if they want to, one way or another. The war on drugs is a farce for multiple reasons:

            1) the cure is often worse than the disease–I can see incarcerating people for manufacturing things like crystal meth, but a plant that is clearly less harmful than alcohol is another story;

            2) the high authorities (I’m not necessarily talking about the police or DEA officer in the thick of it, though clearly there is corruption there as well) are obviously not serious about the war on drugs, or the bankers laundering the money would be quickly arrested. I understand the Bushes put the kibosh on an investigation into money laundering in Florida. And then there was the case with HSBS where they were caught red-handed and no one went to prison.

            The problem with substance abuse in the US or anywhere (versus, say, an occasional partaking) is indicative of deeper social/cultural problems, not the need for a police state.

    Dennis M. O’Neil says:
    Al’s comment disguised as a question is one of those areas where the rubber hits the road.
    Al said:
    “I find it interesting that people who live in our country…really…..unfortunately a very large number of people who live in our country don’t really understand the total environment that they are living in! They understand their street that they live on. They understand the job that they go to everyday. But I don’t think they really understand some of the issues that we have been dealing with on the program this weekend. In terms of the negative aspects of big government. In terms of the negative aspects that are not reported in the daily press.”

    It is a lack of understanding by design!
    We live in a synthetic environment.
    We live in a hologram of greatness.
    We have illusory freedoms accompanied by a mind melting media telling us we are free and great.
    We live in a synthetic world where star witness can speak cursively but not read cursive.
    We live in a synthetic world of reality TV peepshows into semi-scripted debauched lives passing itself off as entertainment.
    We live in a synthetic world where critical thinkers are ostracized Ebenezer Scrooges because we attempt to see beyond the artifice.
    We live in a synthetic world which requires a synthetic measure of wealth in order for it to exist.
    A lot of media time and effort has been invested to create the perceptions which prevail in the focus of media mind melt economic illiterate zombies.
    You can say the large number of which Al refers to exist in economic illiteracy. Economic ignorance is their domesticating corral. Their mind numb is their harness. Their lack of curiosity is their blinders and their reins.
    Those who accept domestication are oblivious that they are even in a corral. Some see the large number of domesticated media mind melted numb from a different perspective. Although those select few may live in a similar environment……. at least mentally they are the equivalent of a wild mustang running free looking at the masses enclosed behind the split rail.

    Interesting comments from the contributors on this Independence weekend show. For many years ( for me ) it’s been hard to celebrate Independece Day to its “true” intentions. I celebrate it as ” independent thinking “.

    I agree with Jeff Deist about re-writing the history books. As knowing the true history of our country will bring back a ” true Republic “.

    Gold is now about $163 above the 200 day moving average and I don’t know how much more it can go during this period when demand is supposed to be slowing down but for some reason Brexit has created a lot of demand even though the markets have written off the risk and headed to new highs.

      I encourage everyone to take 15 minutes and listen. I know that KWN is NOT everyone’s favorite source for non-biased PM analysis, But Mr. Fleckenstein’s insights are worth listening to, and of course, thinking about.

      My takeaway was simple: If you bought PM miners and they are up a LOT (100+%) AND you believe gold and silver are going higher in the long-term, why would you sell core positions?

      Also … Mr. F is VERY clear about the specific companies you INVEST in (he picked CDE as a negative, which actually surprised me). At some point, as an investor, you will need to re-evalaute each company, on a regular basis, based on FUNDAMENTALS. The charts since January have been eye-popping; now is the time to consider which companies are going to do well in the long-haul.

    Hey Big Al

    Was wondering if you still hold AGC? The company looks severely undervalued. In 2011 they released a PFS and the AISC was just $524 an oz. Now the company is about to release an updated PFS and updated resource estimate. Since the last PFS the Brazilian currency has crashed and is now trading at half the value as it was in 2011. The company has also decided to rent their mining equipment instead of buying it. They will include the new resource estimate and they have also redesigned the pit wall. All of which should help in reducing capex. This will be one of the lowest cost producers out there. With several majors surrounding them they could easily get gobbled up in an M & A.

    I t should like shooting fish in a barrel as Mr. Moriarty often says, to pick good stocks at this point!
    Using technical analysis, because of the large jump on Friday a number of stocks went from support right past a pivot point and stand between the pivot point and the first resistance level. It seems logical that the resistance level will now be tried, i.e. the stock should rise.
    e.g. PPP, Primero mining was an outstanding performer on Friday.
    Now it is :

    Price Support Pivot Point Resistance
    2.44 2.03 2.34 2.65
    With the price above the pivot it should go to resistance.

    This is just one example, not investment advice, among many mining stocks.
    I was almost 100% invested already, but I have never seen such positive analysis results.
    Of course, support, pivot, resistance technical analysis does not mathematically include volume and momentum data, and here we have indications of problems with the speed of the rise being too fast, resulting in a large number of over-bought status for stocks; especially silver stocks.

      Summary

      Impact Silver has a good balance sheet, but I wish they would disclose costs and reserves more easily.

      Impact Silver has good finances, forward guidance and management.

      Impact should do well in this upcoming precious metals bull market, but not till the middle or latter part can it shine.

      Since my last article, I have gotten two more company requests to profile. So, this article will be about a company called Impact Silver (OTCPK:ISVLF), and I have to say this company does look intriguing, but it is a speculative company.

      When it comes to valuation, this company’s EV/EBITDA ratio stands at roughly 11. That is at a higher range then I would like to see, but its price to book value is calculated to be .57, and its book value per share price is calculated to be $0.55 per share, while currently its stock price is trading at a price of $0.31-.32 per share. So in terms of current valuation, its book value valuation is great, but its other ones are a little high.

      In terms of its assets, currently, it has four producing mines. The mines are its San Ramone mine, its Noche Buena Mine, its Cuchara-Oscar mine, and its Capire mine. According to drill hole results, and conference calls, these mines are of a higher grade quality, but my problem with their reporting is that they haven’t giving a resource report, of at least total reserves available, which should be disclosed using the measured and indicated (M&I) metric at the very least. Preferably I would like to see companies disclose their resources on a proven and probable (2P) estimate basis, but I can live with an M&I basis.

      In terms of its assets, most of its exploration budget will be derived towards its San Ramone mine, with a little bit of the work derived towards its higher grade Mirasol mine. In terms of their projects production costs, based on the company’s financials (which I will dive into later), I am guessing their costs are roughly $12-14 dollars per ounce at an all in sustaining measure. To give you an idea of the mines grades, click here, and then go to page 25 of its corporate presentation, and they do disclose their recent drill hole results. That will give you an idea of the company’s grades. Based on their drill hole results, I would say they have overall grades of the assets are, but nothing salivating.

      In terms of the company’s financials, their balance sheet appears to be good, but not great. Its current ratio stands at roughly 1.99, which is pretty good, but only contains $717,369 of cash in the treasury. Its total assets to total liabilities ratio stands at 6.6, with no long term debt on its balance sheet. In terms of its balance sheet, I would like to see more cash, but I would say it’s a strong balance sheet.

      In terms of its net income, I would say it is in much better shape then what the bottom line suggests. In terms of the company’s net income, its bottom line posted a loss of $(1,427,838). But it had some non-cash charges to its net income that needs to be taken into consideration when evaluating the company. The main write-down I am referring to is its amortization and depletion write-down. That write-down equated to an amount of $2,107,807 dollars. If you add this back, you can see that their operations are still profitable. This conclusion is also supported by its cash flow analysis.

      In terms of the company’s cash flow, I calculated it to be positive at $146,616 dollars of free cash flow. So one can tell from its cash flow statement, their operations are just about profitable, at least in my opinion that’s what it seems like.

    ARLISS AND THE NATURE OF MONEY

    How many Disney movies can you think of that open up with an exploration into the nature of money?
    I can only think of one. Not quite as in depth as “Atlas Shrugged” but a curious beginning to a Disney movie. It is as if there was no better way to start the picture.
    Old Yeller was not Travis’ first dog.
    Travis’ favored first dog Bell was bit by a rattler.
    Just after the Civil War Bell was bitten by the head of a rattler “Papa” had separated from its writhing body with a scythe. The favored Bell did not make it.
    Was the name of the felled favored first dog an accident?
    The young America’s hard fought for Liberty was symbolized by a cracked Bell.
    The Civil War had killed the country’s innocence causing it to mourn as Travis mourned his favored dog. Then Old Yeller burst onto to the scene calling for the love of a dog and/or liberty once again.
    It is difficult not to compare Travis’ dogs with America’s healing and struggle for liberty.
    Travis was given the chance to name the newly arrived stray.
    He could have just as easily called him Ishmael.
    On a basic level Old Yeller is a kid’s story of adventure on the frontier.
    But the author of both the book and the screenplay delved into deeper levels of concern even though very simply put.
    Below is dialogue from the movie’s opening scene, to wit:
    Arliss: “What’s pop gonna sell our steers for?”
    Travis: “For money of course!”
    Arliss: “What’s money?”
    Travis: “It’s what you buy things with.”
    Arliss: “What do you mean buy things?”
    Travis: “Well you got money ya give it ta people for stuff. They say you can get anything for money.”
    Arliss: “Anything!!!!!! What’s it look like?”
    Travis: “I never seen but one piece…a dollar bill Papa had. Its paper”
    Arliss: “What did Papa get for this dollar?”
    Travis: “Nothing it was no good.”
    Arliss: “But you just said you could get anything with money!”
    Travis: “Well you can..Papa’s was Confederate.”
    Arliss: “What’s Confederate money?”
    Travis: “Confederate money…well…..it’s……..
    Arliss: “ Well!?????”
    Travis: “Don’t you ever run out of questions!”

    Maybe we should be more like Arliss and ask more questions about the nature of money.

      Buffet has called derivatives weapons of mass destruction.

      Deuschebank and JPMorgan, the banks with highest derivative exposure, as far as I can evalidate, indicate that 78% of their derivatives are interest rate swaps derivatives.

      Now, I can announce another reason WHY INTEREST RATES CANNOT GO UP.
      Other the fact that any significant rise in interest rates will increase national deficits, any increase in interest rates WILL BANKRUPT major banks with derivative exposure.

      Even though not a penny has changed hands as a direct result of Brexit, it will be seen in hindsight as being the straw that broke the camel’s back. The system is so unstable that in the same way that iodine and ammonia make an incredibly sensitive explosive called Nitrogen trioxide, a mere touch can set it off.

      If the Italian banks go then they will take Deutsche Bank down. DB has $65-$75 trillion in derivatives. When DB goes, the whole system goes in a week. Anything at all could set if off. All banks will go under.

      Banks are in the business of lending long and borrowing short. In a crisis, any bank can be taken down by depositors demanding their money no matter how financially stable they are before the run. It’s not a good time to keep money in a bank.

        You are mistaken. The BIS did not cut in half the total notional amount of the global derivatives back in 2011 as a certain person with the name JS Kim said in an interview with STGReport yesterday. I went back and checked the actual past reports from the BIS and it was around $600-700 trillion in 2008, 2009 and 2010. They never reported that it was $1.2 quadrillion as JS Kim claims. The people who are saying that there are $1.2 or even $1.5 quadrillion in global derivatives are double-counting. What they are doing is making the mistake by counting each derivatives contact twice, once for each counterparty, therefore doubling the actual total amount. A number of websites, including ALT media sites, say that there are about $600 or $700 trillion in derivatives also.

        • On July 4, 2016 at 7:12 am,

          You have it exactly correct. The BIS has never used a figure of 1200 or 1300 trillion. I just looked at the numbers at the BIS and they show $492 trillion notional value as of H2 2015. And it’s interesting to note that gold derivatives are 1% of interest rate derivatives.

      See….we need another crisis to get the printing presses rolling and get some fresh minted cheques into the hands of those who lost big time. Like pension funds, insurance companies, insured deposits, crashed banks, Chinese steel companies etc etc.

        • On July 3, 2016 at 1:39 pm,
          Birdman says:

          That’s what I am talking about. Money needs to be created to top the reserve up when an emergency hits. Last time around it was the banks themselves that got the liquidity hit but next time it will be the deposit insurance that is found wanting and needs a transfusion of cash. Between fixing that and the busted pension plans we should almost have enough to create the next recovery since its more debt that is needed to make the wheels go round. Basically…..this is the helicopter money scenario. It just lands in a different place than last time but its more effective because in this case it goes directly into the pockets of individuals. What else would we call pension payments anyway when the system is already bankrupt if not a helicopter drop on a quarter of the population?

    Gold is a seriosly dangerous game.

      Glad to see you are back showing your ass. I posted a call for a correction on April 28, If you can get a next door neighbor 10-year-old to show you how to read a chart, May 1 to June 1 was clearly a correction to everyone except you.

      Are you still blaming everyone else for your investment decisions? By the way when I suggested dumping gold and buying platinum, the spread was $331 in favor of gold, now the spread is $282 and that’s after a $100 pop in gold. Maybe if you are so smart, you can recommend something better?

Guys, there’s no such thing as following a guru. Everyone follows their own judgment, that’s all. The difference is that certain types of people like to blame others for their own mistakes. 
You know what little nobody me has in common with Moriarty, Casey, Coffin, etc, etc.?
      • I have made money and I have lost money with their picks as well as my own. I have turned losers into winners by selling right and winners into losers by selling wrong, but I can’t remember an instance in which I bought something that didn’t give me a chance or many to exit my position a winner. 
People who get better at what they’re doing take responsibility for their actions.

Great comment Matthew. I agree with you 100%. Especially with the mention that too many traders are quick on the trigger to blame others for their own choices as if none of the choice was in their own control all along.

    Unfortunately, Avi Gilbert has shown up. The only thing worse would have been to have Gary Savage show up at the same time (he declined an invitation).

    Avi Gilbert’s incendiary writing style has derailed a calm, intellectual, courteous site in matter of hours. That takes REAL talent.

      Cheers Glenfidish. Yes, many miners are growing by leaps and bounds each day lately.

      So, it looks like the scenario we discussed where Gold/Silver may buck the trend of the Summer Doldrums and be unseasonably strong did in fact play out, Gold took out the Jan 2015 peak of $1307.80, and the 2013 trough that started it all of $1321.50 on a closing basis. In my mind, the strong summer and the takeout of these 2 resistance levels were what I was looking for to signal that major bottom in spot Gold was in December, the Jan 19th low in the miners was their final low.

      I do agree that in the near future we’ll see Gold correct, so I am starting to trim a little on strong days, and buy a little whenever certain stocks drop by 10-20%.

      Best to you sir!
