November 4, 2017

It was a busy news week from a political, economic data, and central bank perspective but the markets more or shrugged it all off. We continue to see precious metals range bound and US markets grind higher. The yield curve remains compressed and the US dollar is closing at levels from 4 months ago.

On the first hour of this week’s show we get some insights on inflation, the nominee for the next Fed Chairman, and energy metals. Please keep in touch with me by commenting and emailing me at I love hearing from everyone!

  • Segment 1: Jesse Felder, Founder of The Felder Report kicks off the show outlining why he thinks inflation is rising more than the data shows. This could have a major impact on the ability of central banks to jump back on the QE bandwagon.
  • Segment 2: Fund Manager Dana Lyons looks at the historically bullish bias in the US markets shown by fund money flows.
  • Segment 3: We shift focus with Sean Brodrick, Senior Natural Resource Analyst at the Edelson Institute. Sean and I discuss how he is investing in the energy metals space. This includes lithium and cobalt.
  • Segment 4: Dan Oliver, Founder of Myrmikan Capital wraps us up with some information on the new Fed Chairman nominee Jerome Powell.
  • Segment 5: Jordan Goodman reflects on the pros and cons of the GOPs proposed tax plan.
  • Segment 6: We discuss the downside of political correctness with Dr. John Huber.
  • Segment 7: Tate Fegley recommended by The Mises Institute discusses his views on the various police issues in the US.
  • Segment 8: We wrap up the Show with Cade Courtley a real American hero. Big Al asks that you support him all that you can.

    Thanks as always gentleman…..somehow first to post this weekend

      Nov 04, 2017 04:22 AM

      Congrats Wolfster on kicking things off in pole position. 🙂

      A quick hello to Skeeta if he’s out there (he must be taking it easy in the pool)

      As always thanks to Big Al & Cory & guests for putting out another good weekend show.

        Nov 04, 2017 04:42 AM

        Wolfster and Excelsior,

        For me this was one of the best KER Politics that I have had the privilege to put together.

        I hope that we get a lot of input as I will be on our blog virtually all day.

    Nov 04, 2017 04:52 AM

    What planet do you fellows live on? And why do you embrace their narrative? We
    all know its a lie,presented by the greatest liars the world has ever known. The central banks. The chapwood index says otherwise.

      Nov 04, 2017 04:07 AM

      Hi spacenormal, Many on this site recognize the gov’s CPI is a rigged number and the gov/central banks incessantly push a narrative to protect Dollar, Inc. Thanks for pointing out the Chapwood index, I was unaware of this particular index before your post.

          Nov 04, 2017 04:45 AM

          Mr. Irish,

          I must add to OOTB’s comment that I have pictures so you probably should put all the plunder back!

            Nov 04, 2017 04:04 AM

            funny Big Al.

      Nov 04, 2017 04:07 AM

      It exposes why middle-class Americans — salaried workers who are given routine pay hikes and retirees who depend on annual increases in their corporate pension and Social Security payments — can’t maintain their standard of living. Plainly and simply, the Index shows that their income can’t keep up with their expenses, and it explains why they increasingly have to turn to the government for entitlements to bail them out.

      It’s because salary and benefit increases are pegged to the Consumer Price Index (CPI), which for more than a century has purported to reflect the fluctuation in prices for a typical “basket of goods” in American cities — but which actually hasn’t done that for more than 30 years.
      FROM THE ARTICAL>>>>>>>>>>>

        Nov 04, 2017 04:46 AM

        OOTB, as Kath and I are kind of on a fixed income now (with savings Thank God) I can definitely relate to your comment.

      Nov 04, 2017 04:40 PM

      The Chapwood Index is not exactly real accurate either. The data is gathered from Facebook friends of Mr. Butowsky who are mainly higher middle and upper income people. And of course they only measure inflation in the large cities. The average American is not part of those groups.

    Nov 04, 2017 04:17 AM

    Segment 8: Veterans’ Day is Nov 11th, not the 4th, Big Al.

    And talking about WWII, or any situation, most people never have “the whole truth”. You can never have the whole truth, not even as a participant, because there are outside forces you may not be aware of.

      Nov 04, 2017 04:50 AM

      Mr. Pace a definite mistake on my part and for this great day and to all veterans, I am truly sorry.

      I completely understand the concept of “the whole truth” . I do understand the concept of common sense and because of this I must say that Lindbergh was completely insane in supporting the Nazi’s. All a person with a pea brain had to do was to look at Russia; Poland; France and the cleansing situation.

    Nov 04, 2017 04:20 AM

    Not sure this tax bill will lower my taxes if I lose my 21K deduction for property and school taxes. Maybe I’ll make it up with higher earnings on companies I own stock in.
    But the Astros are champs and that’s all that matters today. Yippee!

      Nov 04, 2017 04:51 AM

      Bonzo, the final version, as you are aware, is not out yet. A lot of ironing yet to be done.

      Nov 04, 2017 04:48 PM

      “But the Astros are champs and that’s all that matters today. Yippee!”

      Exactly. This is just what our rulers want. Keep the taxpayers preoccupied with bread and circuses and they won’t pay attention to how they are being ripped-off.

      Whatever comes out of this will not be reform. Real reform would be getting rid of the income tax, the beyond evil Feral Reserve and getting rid of 80% of government to start and of course ending the never ending foreign occupations and wars the empire has undertaken all over the world.

      The US gooberment is the biggest government the world has ever known and is the most successful criminal enterprise the world has ever known. It is a government of the criminals, by the criminals and for the criminals and you WILL pay for it so don’t count on getting a tax break.

      “You know you are in too many wars in too many places when even warmonger Lindsay Graham can’t keep track anymore”

      Nov 04, 2017 04:51 PM

      “Not sure this tax bill will lower my taxes…”

      Ah come on bonzo. Don’t you know taxes are for little people. Leona Helmsley let slip that truth. And telling the truth couldn’t be tolerated so the IRS put the wood to her.

        Nov 04, 2017 04:31 PM

        Ebo……….you should know the score……..Leona Helmsley said it correctly….”only the little pay taxes”

          Nov 04, 2017 04:57 PM

          I tell ya Jerry…all I hear these days are the progressives wanting to raise taxes…supposedly to stick it to the rich.

          I ask them if they get their way do they really think the rich will pay?

          After all, ain’t it far cheaper for Warren Buffet, Gates, Soros, etc. to hire more lobbyists and lawyers and buy a few more congress critters to get loop holes to by-pass whatever the progressives want versus let the gooberment steal half their income?

          Even the most brain dead of sheeple should be able to figure that one out, but no.

            Nov 04, 2017 04:59 PM

            Ditto……..if , the sheeple were paying attention……..

            Nov 04, 2017 04:04 PM

            the real screwing will be in the real estate tax area……..never ending raises….in all areas of the country……..Boomers , figuring they are going to capitalize on their increased wealth through real estate inflation are going to have a surprise, if the mortgage right off max out is $500,000.

            Nov 04, 2017 04:16 PM

            What about demographics…isn’t real estate going to take a tumble regardless of the tax situation just because of the demographics (and then of course there is the debt bubble which is a whole other subject that could crash real estate).

            Nov 04, 2017 04:20 PM

            Yep…….maybe……..but, if we keep the illegal and visa immigration train at full speed, they can take up the slack…..

            Nov 04, 2017 04:48 PM

            Take up the slack Jerry? You bet!

            Nov 04, 2017 04:30 PM

            “Take up the slack Jerry? You bet!”

            I don’t think so. Most of the immigrants are poor and are net tax eaters.

      Nov 04, 2017 04:32 PM

      Mr. Bonzo, you live in TX, is that correct? Didn’t know property taxes are so high there.

        Nov 04, 2017 04:47 PM

        That does seem really high, of course, it depends on the value of your property. We have a nice place and I think that our taxes (real estate) are a bit over five grand.

          Nov 04, 2017 04:26 PM

          Mr. Big Al Korelin,

          I ran the numbers and if the GOP plan goes through as is I will pay thousands more in feral income tax. The claim that Republicans stand for lower taxes and smaller government is clearly a lie.

          If Trump signs this plan he is a liar. On the campaign trail he said there would be tax relief for all.

        Nov 04, 2017 04:20 PM

        Texas has no income or death tax, but property and school taxes are high.

    Nov 04, 2017 04:47 AM

    Bob Moriarity is correct about JFK’s being murdered by LBJ. I was only 15 when it happened but I knew instantly that LBJ had done it. LBJ had already had 6 people murdered before this, and he was about to be sent to prison for his Bobby Baker and Billy Sol Estes scandals, as Bobby Kennedy hated LBJ and wanted him off the ticket in ’64. LBJ knew he had to act fast and that Texas was the place where he could get away with it as he controlled judges and police depts. there. ANyone who doubts this should read Barr McClelland’s book BLOOD,MONEY, POWER. Barr’s wife was mayor of Austin and Barr was a lawyer at the Austin law firm that handled all of LBJ’s affairs.
    You should also listen to E.Howard Hunt’s deathbed confession on youtube. Hunt was a devout Catholic and would not lie on his deathbed. LBJ’s lust for power was as ruthless as the Clintons’. And that’s the way it is.

      Nov 04, 2017 04:20 AM

      Well i never!!!!… & for all those years, i thought he had been shot by some nutter from a window in a library with a gun, like in the game Cleudo….See we learn something new everyday.

      Nov 04, 2017 04:53 AM

      I will definitely look up the Hunt confession on his deathbed. That will add a lot of Fabreze to this smelly situation.

        Nov 04, 2017 04:22 PM

        It’s only about 5 minutes long and very interesting.

            Uranium One’s licenses are for mining and extraction, not for export……..
            NOTE……Mining/extraction…….NOT EXPORT

            Nov 04, 2017 04:20 PM

            That is what I also got out of it AJ.

            What I am concerned about is the action itself and the events that occurred afterwards. The actions afterward being the huge monetary gains of the Clinton’s. Maybe it is just bad timing on their parts and, then again, maybe not!

          Nov 06, 2017 06:42 PM

          From the Article AJ posted:
          “Clinton Foundation Donations and Bill Clinton Speaking Fee”

          How much more obvious do things need to be to see the cronyism at work:

          1) “The Times detailed how the Clinton Foundation had received millions in donations from investors in Uranium One.”

          “The donations from those with ties to Uranium One weren’t publicly disclosed by the Clinton Foundation, even though Hillary Clinton had an agreement with the White House that the foundation would disclose all contributors. Days after the Times story, the foundation acknowledged that it “made mistakes,” saying it had disclosed donations from a Canadian charity, for instance, but not the donors to that charity who were associated with the uranium company.”

          (Bingo! Franky G. may have sold his interest in Uranium One a few years before the deal went through, but make no mistake about it, he is super good friends with the Clintons and would have still had some exposure to the company in stock, and his buddy Ian T. also gave money to the Clinton foundation and had a stake in the Uranium One sale. I’m sure Clinton was influential in recommending the deal to the departments that needed to sign off on it “unofficially”.

          2) “The Times also wrote that Bill Clinton spoke at a conference in Moscow on June 29, 2010 — which was after the Rosatom-Uranium One merger was announced in June 2010, but before it was approved by the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States in October 2010. The Russian-based Renaissance Capital Group organized the conference and paid Clinton $500,000.”

          (What else do you need to say on this factoid….. Ding, Ding, Ding!!)

          3) “Renaissance Capital has “ties to the Kremlin” and its analysts “talked up Uranium One’s stock, assigning it a ‘buy’ rating and saying in a July 2010 research report that it was ‘the best play’ in the uranium markets,” the Times wrote.”

          “But there is no evidence that the donations or the speaking fee had any influence on the approvals granted by the NRC or the Committee on Foreign Investments.”

          (What a pile of horseshit. Of course Renaissance Capital talked it up so that everyone involved would be enriched and the deal would be more attractive. Talk about collusion…. )

          4) “Lydia Guryev, who used the name “Cynthia Murphy” while living in the United States, pleaded guilty to espionage charges in July 2010 and was forced to leave the U.S. Her guilty plea came after the Rosatom-Uranium One merger was announced and before the Committee on Foreign Investments approved it. But there was nothing about the merger in the federal criminal complaint or the press release announcing her guilty plea.”

          (The author of this “fact check”, Eugene Kiely, must be brain-dead. There doesn’t need to be anything about the merger in her announcing of the guilty plea, to understand that info was likely leaked back to the Russian Federation. It isn’t like she’s going to go down a check list all all the secrets she shared…. duh….. only what she got busted for).

          5) The Hill story also rehashed an FBI investigation that resulted in “charges against the Russian nuclear industry’s point man in the United States, TENEX director Vadim Mikerin, as well as a Russian financier and an American trucking executive whose company moved Russian uranium around the United States.”

          “In 2015, Mikerin was sentenced to 48 months and required to pay more than $2 million in restitution for conspiring to commit money laundering, according to the Justice Department.”

          “The Hill quoted the attorney for a former FBI informant in the TENEX case as saying her client “witnessed numerous, detailed conversations in which Russian actors described their efforts to lobby, influence or ingratiate themselves with the Clintons in hopes of winning favorable uranium decisions from the Obama administration.”

          (This is glaringly scandalas, and it’s impossible to site Mikerin and TENEX’s involvement without connecting the dots. How obvious does this need to be?)

          6) “On Fox News, Rep. Devin Nunes, the chairman of the House intelligence committee, said that “we’ve been communicating back and forth through different channels” with the FBI informant in the TENEX case.”

          “You are talking about major decisions that were made at a time when we were resetting relations with Russia that actually happened to benefit, you know, the Clinton Foundation, perhaps other avenues, we don’t know yet,” Nunes said in an Oct. 24 interview with Bret Baier.

          It may be that individuals and companies sought to curry favor with Hillary Clinton and even influence her department’s decision on the Uranium One sale. But, as we’ve written before, there is no evidence that donations to the Clinton Foundation from people with ties to Uranium One or Bill Clinton’s speaking fee influenced Hillary Clinton’s official actions. ”

          (No evidence? All of that is mountains of evidence: Billy boy got paid a half million dollars to go speak after the deal was announced but before it closed.
          Frank G. and Ian T. donated to the Clinton Foundation and were good friends, and their “friendly” deal went through and checked all the boxes with each department in the Obama administration. You’re telling me the Clintons didn’t influence that decision. 2 Different Russians were meddling and trading inside secrets and were busted for it. Hello, this is clear as day and only a libtard could have any shred of doubt that these guys hooked up their pals, made a sweetheart insider deal, and greased the skids (likely “off the record”) with the US government dept heads to get this things signed off on by everyone.

          What is amazing is how much attention is given to Clinton, but Clearly Obama & his whole administration had an even bigger role to play and they all failed epically. If Clinton is partially to blame, then so is Obama, and so are those 8 other department heads. What a freakin’ circus!!)

            Nov 06, 2017 06:53 PM

            I think what is also funny, is that the Russians controlled the company Uranium One, who then shipped the Uranium to Canada, and then back to the US for processing, but that they sold it to US Utility companies. Russia made money selling our Uranium to US utility companies via a 3rd party company to truck and process north of the border.

            This just goes to show how little anyone in politics or business cared about Uranium or the US Uranium miners back in 2010, and they still don’t care today. It would be like a US company buying the Gold Miners in China, shipping it up to Russia to smelt and then coming back and selling it to the Chinese people.

            Insane right? But that is exactly what the Russians did. I’d call it Brilliant, if it wasn’t so sinister.

      Listen to them discuss popular concerns (like black lives matter, capitalism, socialism, Wall Street, and politics). Observe them as they measure their self-worth with destructive acts in order to win the approval of their peers. Note the activities they enjoy and whom they idolize. And, by all means, ask their “educators” what they believe should be done about it. When you remind yourself that many of them have been shaped by our schools for twelve, sixteen, eighteen, and even more years, you will get an idea of what many educators are doing daily to innocent students in the name of “education.”

      But you mustn’t stop there. If you really want to understand the problem, you must learn to probe deeper. Read what the average student must read in many of his classes: volumes of irrational nonsense in which clever writers adroitly lead students to their intellectual graveyards; acquaint yourself with some of the “profound” ideas voiced by popular anarchists, presented to students as precepts of “freedom” lovers. And observe the academic routine – the busy-work, the contradictory curricula content, and the historical negationism – conceived to confuse and deaden healthy minds seeking truth and sound principles to guide them

            But these stats say more about the increasing uselessness of a high school degree than they do about the value of a college diploma. Moreover, since virtually everyone at the very highest strata of society has a college degree, the stats are skewed by a handful of financial titans. A college degree has become a minimal status marker as much as anything else. “I’m sure people who take polo lessons or sailing lessons earn a lot more on average too,” says Alan Collinge of Student Loan Justice, which advocates for debt forgiveness and other reforms. “Does that mean you should send your kids to sailing school?”

            America as a country has evolved in recent decades into a confederacy of widescale industrial scams. The biggest slices of our economic pie – sectors like health care, military production, banking, even commercial and residential real estate – have become crude income-redistribution schemes, often untethered from the market by subsidies or bailouts, with the richest companies benefiting from gamed or denuded regulatory systems that make profits almost as assured as taxes. Guaranteed-profit scams – that’s the last thing America makes with any level of consistent competence. In that light, Trump, among other things, the former head of a schlock diploma mill called Trump University, is a perfect president for these times. He’s the scammer-in-chief in the Great American Ripoff Age, a time in which fleecing students is one of our signature achievements.

    FBI turns over new Clinton investigation documents to Congress

    The FBI has begun turning over to Senate investigators hundreds of pages of memos regarding the bureau’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, sources told The Hill.

    The sources said the Justice Department notified the Senate Judiciary Committee late Friday and the FBI began transmitting memos soon after to assist Congress in its review of former Director James Comey’s handling of the Clinton email case.

    The memos detail how and when the bureau’s leadership declined to pursue criminal charges against Clinton for transmitting classified information on her private email server as secretary of State, an investigation that has remained controversial since the 2016 presidential campaigns.

      White House strikes back at Bushes over weak legacy

      The White House fired back at former Presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush on Saturday, attacking their legacies after both Bushes expressed their displeasure with President Trump in a new book.

      “The American people voted to elect an outsider who is capable of implementing real, positive, and needed change – instead of a lifelong politician beholden to special interests,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement to The Hill. “If they were interested in continuing decades of costly mistakes, another establishment politician more concerned with putting politics over people would have won.”

        Maxine Waters to Sessions: ‘Time to go back to the plantation’

        Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) blasted Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday, telling him to “go back to the plantation” after he said did not recall hearing if members of the Trump campaign were in contact with the Russians.

        “Sessions doesn’t remember what he said, when he said it, & where he was when he said it. Don’t blame him. Time to go back to the plantation,” Waters tweeted.

          Nov 04, 2017 04:59 PM

          A few months ago, one of Trump’s biggest supporters, Chris Christie, had already suggested that Sessions had either lied or made confusing statements during his confirmation hearing.

          Sessions is cesspool material and needs to be replaced.

    “Orgies, Affairs, Sex Shows”: Secret FBI Analysis Of MLK Jr. Exposed In Latest Release Of JFK Files

    … The National Archives and Records Administration on Friday afternoon released hundreds more documents related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.

    The documents can be found here.

    As CBS reports, this latest batch of 676 records could yield more interesting results than last week’s release, as they are the ones intelligence agencies requested more time to review, citing national security concerns.

    The majority of records from Friday’s batch – 553 of them – are from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Those records were previously denied in their entirety, according to NARA.

    CBS points out some interesting findings…

    Donna Brazile: “I Considered Replacing Hillary With Joe Biden”, Felt Like A “Slave”

    In her latest bombshell book preview, Donna Brazile says she came close to replacing Hillary Clinton with Joseph Biden after Hillary Clinton’s fainting episode sparked speculation about her health

    Donna Brazile’s campaign to embarrass the powerful Democrats who disrespected her during her short-lived tenure as interim chairwoman of the DNC last year is going better than anybody – other than Brazile and her publisher – could’ve possibly imagined.

    After Brazile published the first of what appears to be a series of damning indictments of the incompetence, collusion and arrogance of both the Clinton campaign and Hillary herself – a news-cycle dominating bombshell about how the Clinton campaign and former DNC Chairwoman deliberately pushed the national party to the edge of financial collapse to leave it financially reliant upon and beholden to, the Clintons – Brazile is back with another astonishing revelation courtesy of the Washington Post.

    In a report that paradoxically validates concerns about Clinton’s health raised by conservative media – which were readily dismissed as sexist and “alt-right fake news” by the unabashedly pro-Clinton mainstream media – the Post reported that Brazile contemplated removing Hillary as the party’s candidate after Clinton fainted during a ceremony at the 9/11 Memorial and, as the WaPo adds, “Brazile blasts the campaign’s initial efforts to shroud details of her health as “shameful.”

    Clinton later said she had pneumonia.

    Brazile says she came close to replacing Clinton and Kaine with Vice President Joseph Biden and Sen. Corey Booker, but decided against it after she “thought of Hillary, and all the women in the country who were so proud of and excited about her. I could not do this to them.” Of course, Brazile’s private concerns about her ally and friend’s campaign didn’t stop her from sharing debate questions and town hall topics with the Clinton campaign.

    But that’s hardly the only tantalizing insider detail revealed in the excerpts from Brazile’s new book published by the post (the book hits shelves on Tuesday).

    Inside story: How Russians hacked the Democrats’ emails

    Good AP reconstruction of the DNC hack. RNC got lucky this time around I think – or Assange/Putin wait for the most opportune moment to release them for maximum disruption.

      Nov 05, 2017 05:17 AM

      Clearly the Russians did not hack the DNC. It was an inside job on the part of Seth Rich and we know that because the data transfer rate was that of a physically inserted device, not done over a wireless network.

      But the disinformation campaign and coup d’etat continues. HC has been lying for years and we keep finding more proof daily. Even if the Russians had hacked the DNC, it was not that which was significant, it was the contents showing she rigged the election. Do you really still believe she didn’t rig the election against Trump and still failed?

What you are seeing right now with Donna Brazile and Hillary Clinton, you are seeing the enemy turn on one another and devour one another which is Second Chronicles 20:21 and 20:22. That’s where it talks about in the Bible where the enemy turns and devours one another. Notice those numbers 2021 and 2022, which was the New World Order timeline to have America captured. God is saying right now, ‘No, that’s not going to happen.’ The enemy has his timeline 2021 and 2022,

        Nov 05, 2017 05:18 AM

        OOTB Jerry, I personally don’t think that we will ever see an indictment. I do think; however, that she will probably go down in history in a way that she never planned.

        You know, it’s kind of funny but I really think that the root of the whole problem is Bill. Yes I know that they are many allegations towards both of them but the one sinful act that Bill was involved in is a proven fact and not an allegation called Monica.

        That sinful act really got the attention of the folks in this country with strong moral values. Those of us who honor the Ten Commandments do not want leaders who lack true, God given values.

          Nov 05, 2017 05:59 AM

    “I don’t know what Donna Brazile fell for, but all I know is under the rules and bylaws of the Democratic National Committee, she couldn’t have done this,” Perez told NBC’s “Meet the Press,” referring to a report that said Brazile considered replacing Clinton with former Vice President Joe Biden.

    Mind Boggling Treasonous Acts Exposed and Punished – Mark Taylor

    Former firefighter Mark Taylor, author of the popular book “The Trump Prophecies,” correctly predicted President Donald Trump would win the 2016 election. The day after Trump’s historic win, Taylor predicted there were going to be “military style tribunals” to clean up the massive corruption in Washington. Now, with revelations of bribes by Russian agents given to the Obama Administration in a shady uranium deal, a rigged primary by Hillary Clinton and an Obama Administration “plot to destroy Trump,” revealed in a new book, is there any wonder why former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is calling this “the biggest political corruption scandal in U.S. history.” Against this backdrop, the “military tribunals” predicted by Taylor do NOT look farfetched now.

    Taylor says, “The Lord started working with me about two or three weeks before the election. He kept telling me there’s going to be military style tribunals because the length, the depth and the scope of this corruption goes big, it’s going to boggle people’s minds. I can’t believe how big this is. Folks, put your seat belts on, this is going to be going on for years. These military style tribunals are going to have to take place because this thing is so big that, right now, we’re just scratching the surface. . . . It’s going to take military style tribunals to handle this because these are treasonous acts that are taking place right now. You are seeing treason on a scale that has never been seen before in the history of our country because of how many people are going to be involved.”

    Taylor also points out, “America is not under judgment. It is the systems that are under judgment right now. Whether it’s our political system or judicial system, the immigration system, and even the church is under judgment right now. If you are a leader in this country and you are corrupt, God himself is going to expose you, and he will remove you. . . . The day they arrest Hillary Clinton, do you think she is going to go down by herself? No way. She is going to sing like a bird. What you are seeing right now with Donna Brazile and Hillary Clinton, you are seeing the enemy turn on one another and devour one another which is Second Chronicles 20:21 and 20:22. That’s where it talks about in the Bible where the enemy turns and devours one another. Notice those numbers 2021 and 2022, which was the New World Order timeline to have America captured. God is saying right now, ‘No, that’s not going to happen.’ The enemy has his timeline 2021 and 2022, and God is saying, ‘I have my timeline,’ and God does not go by any man’s written timeline – period. God has stopped the enemy’s timeline. So, you should just strap in. This is going to get bigger and bigger. The exposures are going to continue to keep coming, and these military style tribunals are going to take place. You’re even seeing Hollywood getting wrecked right now. This is just the beginning.”

    Taylor has a new prophecy involving five former presidents (Carter, Bush 41, Clinton, Bush 43 and Obama) that all got together recently at a charity event to trash President Donald Trump. The predictions given to Taylor from God are not kind to any of them. Taylor explains this latest prophecy in the interview.

      My respect for Mr. Hunter just went to zero because of his statement that 20% of uranium production was sold to the Russians. THAT IS ABSOLUTELY FALSE. It was not uranium production it was right to assets in the ground.

      Talk about fake news!

        Nov 05, 2017 05:01 AM

        Big Al, the 20% control of Uranium gets bantered back & forth. from the article Jerry just posted…

        FBI Mole

        Let’s not forget a bombshell report from The Hill two weeks ago which revealed that as early as 2009, the FBI – led by Robert Mueller at the time, had a mole in the Russian uranium industry, and that the agency had evidence that “Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that provided a favorable decision to Moscow” – a deal which would grant the Kremlin control over 20 percent of America’s uranium supply.

        What is interesting to me is just how complicated and intricate this is all getting. I have to wonder just how much of this actually involves “treasonous acts”?

          Nov 05, 2017 05:41 PM

          Treason is relative to the political actors involved and luckily we still have judges to mediate extreme views on the subject. Having said, that, I strongly believe offshoring unpaid tax money to hide from the jurisdiction that is was made, should at the very least be deemed a crime. Offshoring is extremely corrosive to a system like that ours that believes in democracy and fairness. Again these are goals which will never fully be met by any system. For anyone out there interested in tax law read David Cay Johnston. He has written extensively on this white collar theft.

    Paradise Papers: Tax haven secrets of ultra-rich exposed

    A huge new leak of financial documents has revealed how the powerful and ultra-wealthy, including the Queen’s private estate, secretly invest vast amounts of cash in offshore tax havens.

    Donald Trump’s commerce secretary is shown to have a stake in a firm dealing with Russians sanctioned by the US. The leak, dubbed the Paradise Papers, contains 13.4m documents, mostly from one leading firm in offshore finance.

    BBC Panorama is part of nearly 100 media groups investigating the papers.
    As with last year’s Panama Papers leak, the documents were obtained by the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung, which called in the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) to oversee the investigation. The Guardian is among the nearly 100 media partners involved in investigating the documents.

    Sunday’s revelations form only a small part of a week of disclosures that will expose the tax and financial affairs of some of the hundreds of people and companies named in the data, some with strong UK connections.

    Many of the stories focus on how politicians, multinationals, celebrities and high-net-worth individuals use complex structures of trusts, foundations and shell companies to protect their cash from tax officials or hide their dealings behind a veil of secrecy.

        That is why the Dems did what ever they wanted,especially the Clintons. They had the dirt on 9/11.

          Nov 06, 2017 06:37 PM

          Not to split hairs, but I’d say the Dems did whatever they wanted because it was what the real powers wanted.

          If the Clinton’s/Dems were to try to blackmail those behind 9/11, they’d get Clintoned.

    The seven Network effects of Bitcoin.
    1 Speculation
    2. Merchants
    3.Merchants acceptance
    4.Miners-The Electricity usage now is greater than the 2 million people of Macedonia use.
    5. Developers (Polymaths) You know the smart ones.
    6.Financialization- Comex
    7. World Reserve Settlement Currency. A new Decentralized Trust based Currency based on math.(Nuclear Weapons cannot solve math problems)

    That being said,most here have missed the run in Bitcoin. Now the “Big Money” is flowing into Bitcoin.

    President Trump and his former attorney Roy Cohn: What are the implications?
    Either President Trump did know about Cohn’s disgusting CIA-paedo-satanic-cult activities and Cohn’s FBI connections. Or he didn’t know. If President Trump did know then:
    President Trump could be part of a CIA-FBI plot(or plot of a rogue faction within) to control the White House.
    Perhaps President Trump was compromised at one of Cohn’s parties at Studio 54 and is being blackmailed.If President Trump didn’t know,then President Trump is naive,ignorant greedy and selfish,which does not bode well,but explains why he wants to beef up an already beefed up US Military(which he thinks is weak) and place it at the disposal of Israel to bully Iran and the Palestinians and hire it out to Saudi Arabia,when it was Israel and Saudi Arabia that attacked New York on 9/11. We have to ask:
    1. Why did Alan Greenspan save President Trump from personal bankruptcy and bail him out 25 years ago? And what did Greenspan get in return?
    2. Why are not the mainstream media, who are allegedly against President Trump not slaughtering him on his deep and influential friendship with Cohn who organized child sex parties for a CIA satanic cult?
    3. Why did the infowhores not cover this?

    Excelsior. Would you mind sharing your favorite gold junior and Uranium stocks to buy at the moment ?

      Nov 06, 2017 06:45 AM

      Hi Biggus,

      There are probably about 100 Gold names that I like out of the thousands out there, and about a dozen Uranium names out of the 60 Uranium miners I track.

      While that seems like a simple question, it is always a difficult question to answer on a public forum. Investors have different risk appetites / time horizons, and many won’t touch certain market cap stocks, or certain jurisdictions. Some follow only certain management teams, or area plays at the exclusion of all else.

      Some investors have preferences to the more solid & established companies even at today’s prices, that will continue to deliver as the pricing recovers, and others like the more speculative punts that may have a larger percentage increase when the worm turns because they are at a disadvantage at current metals prices.

      Lastly, within the sub-sectors some only like investing in explorers, while others only go with revenue generating producers, and then many completely ignore developers or prospect generators. I’m not sure what areas you are interested in.


      I personally hold 25 Gold stocks (a few I don’t even like that much any more), and am evaluating a few dozen more that I keep a close watch on to make some substitutions in Tax Loss season.

      It’s difficult to boil it all down to 2-3 names in the Gold space, which may give the wrong impression in my conviction in any one name. My preference is to take a
      more diversified approach across sub-sectors and hold a basket of names. There aren’t really any that I feel willing to bet the farm on.

      (I have more conviction on narrowing things down in the Silver and Zinc space, but do have some Uranium names to share on the next post).

      ***> If you can narrow things down a bit in the Gold space to what sub-sector you are interested in (Producers, Developers, Explorers, Prospect Generators / Royalty Companies), and if you have any jurisdiction no-nos, and what you time horizon is (set up for 2018 Q1 Run? Through 2018? 1-2 years out?) then I can boil it down to a few names.

      What I will say is that in general, my preference is to position in turn-around stories in smaller producers, or overlooked/forgotten development stage companies that may be struggling a bit at present, but that won’t be when metals prices rise. I generally steer clear of the larger more established names, as they are more properly valued, and the value/perception gap is not as extreme to capitalize on.

      As a result, I tend to invest in names that others may perceive as “dogs” at present, but that is because some investors are myopic and view everything through the lens of current prices.

      Any student of commodities knows that current prices don’t typically stay stagnant for long, and there are cycles and growth spurts or sell offs in many commodities at different times. It is my belief that in 2018 – 2019 Gold & Silver should continue the uptrend in their bull market, and this rising tide will lift all boats, but it is actually the underwater companies that will rise on a larger percentage basis, than the above water companies already profitable.

      If you narrow down the parameters a bit though as outlined above, then I’ll be happy to throw out a handful of names once I have an idea of what you are more interested in, how long you plan on holding, and what your goals are (value investor or swing-trader).


      As for Uranium, that is a lot easier, as the universe of stocks is much smaller. I wrote something recently on Uranium stocks that outlines my 2 cents on the subject, and when I find it, I’ll post it under this message.


        Nov 06, 2017 06:52 AM

        On October 11, 2017 at 8:02 am,
        Excelsior says:

        I moved my exposure to Uranium Stocks down during the rally in Jan/Feb of this year, and then sold completely out of 6 of my dozen favorites and only have core positions in a remaining 6 companies (Energy Fuels, Ur-Energy, Denison Mines, Uranium Energy Corp, Nexgen Energy, and Anfield Resources). **

        My ideal strategy is to make some cake in the PMs on this next leg higher, and then trim some of the profits and reallocate them into the Uranium miners during tax loss selling in November/December.

        Personally, I’m not in a huge rush, but there are some insanely low valuations in many of the miners right now, so it’s hard not to add at these levels. The Uranium markets certainly teach one patience.

        ** Other companies I’ll be buying back when the worm turns are Berkeley Energy, Lightbridge Corp, Centrus Energy, UEX Corp, ALX Uranium, Peninsula Energy, and possibly either Skyharbour Resources or Bannerman Resources.

        The longer term off-take agreements that the remaining producers have in place are starting to come to their end of life from now until 2020. It’s a quite opaque market, but from prior interviews and releases from Cameco, Areva, Energy Fuels, and Ur-Energy I believe most of these contracts expire in 2018 or 2019.

        Ultimately, the spot and longer term prices won’t move higher until those negotiations take place. It is encouraging the most of Peninsula Energy’s contracts were negotiated in the low $50’s. If the other companies can keep contracts in the $40s-$50s then they’ll make it and prices will start to move up after a terrible bear market.

        The only wildcard is the Kazakhstan production centers that are going to be acting like OPEC in Oil as a swing producer and may try to thwart the North American competitors by keeping the spot prices in the $30’s-$40s which gives them good profits but discourages new mines or production coming on line.

        That’s what I’ll be watching for 2018 but for now I only have about 1/3 of the allocation and plan on growing that to 60% of my ideal exposure at the end of the year.

          Nov 06, 2017 06:00 AM

          If was looking for the longer term value approach to Uranium investing (over years not months) and only could pick 3-4, then I’d recommend Nexgen Energy as the premier Explorer, either UEC (Uranium Energy Corp) or Denison Mines as the Developers, and Energy Fuels as a Producer.

          [having said that, I believe some of the smaller companies will actually outperform those companies on a percentage basis when pricing takes off in Uranium]

            Nov 06, 2017 06:10 AM

            A strategy I use in each commodity, is to have a few “Anchors” (typically Producers or Advanced Developers) where I feel very good that a certain company will stand the ravages of time and deliver in a reasonable pricing environment (and that they’ll also outperform the general ETFs).

            Then I’ll mix in a few “Turn-Around” stories or forgotten/neglected stories that have the ability to get re-rated higher when more investors and analysts come back into the resource sector.

            Lastly, I’ll pepper in some Exploration companies with good teams/assets and take smaller positions in those as “Lottery Tickets” if they deliver on their strategy and get a big spike higher. I believe most exploration stories should be traded though and not held for long stretches. (there are a few exceptions in the cases where the explorer really hits a potential Tier 1 Asset – like Nexgen did in Uranium or Solgold die in Copper or Garibaldi may have in Nickel, etc…)

    Nov 06, 2017 06:25 AM

    America as a country has evolved in recent decades into a confederacy of widescale industrial scams. The biggest slices of our economic pie – sectors like health care, military production, banking, even commercial and residential real estate – have become crude income-redistribution schemes, often untethered from the market by subsidies or bailouts, with the richest companies benefiting from gamed or denuded regulatory systems that make profits almost as assured as taxes. Guaranteed-profit scams – that’s the last thing America makes with any level of consistent competence. In that light, Trump, among other things, the former head of a schlock diploma mill called Trump University, is a perfect president for these times. He’s the scammer-in-chief in the Great American Ripoff Age, a time in which fleecing students is one of our signature achievements.

    For all the Bitcoin Bubble proponents,you are about to get schooled on Bubble 101.
    Once Bitcoin passes the 10,000 dollar figure,it will be off to the races.
    With just over 12 Trillion dollars in U S savings accounts alone,just a percentage of this flowing into Bitcoin will humble even the staunchest Bubble advocates.
    What most people are missing about Bitcoin is the Ludwig Von Mises theory of Austrian economics associated with Bitcoin.
    A lot of people who invested into Bitcoin have no desire or need to sell their Bitcoin.
    The fact of the matter is that there is not a lot of Bitcoin available to purchase.

      Trace Mayer, an early investor in Gold Money pitched Bitcoin to the Sprott Group when it was a quarter.Nobody could see the vision.
      How would you like to be a newsletter writer or investment advisor and have to explain how you missed the 7,000 move in Bitcoin?
      Same goes with Gold. Every time one tries to bring up GATA and the manipulation that exists,the usual suspects are right there to try discredit you.Not only is there serious manipulation in the Gold market,if one digs deep enough you can connect the dots all the way to 9/11.
      The hard money guys will be the first in line to defend Austrian Economics,at the same time will be the first ones to discredit Bitcoin.

        Nov 06, 2017 06:19 PM

        Austrian economics needs no defense. You’d know that if you’d ever studied it.

          Hi Mathew :
          I will actually takes some time and respond to you.I just ordered the four book set by Ludwig Von Mises.
          How do you explain someone such as Trace Mayer with all his speeches he gave on Austrian Economics being one of the leading proponents of Bitcoin?

            Nov 06, 2017 06:42 PM

            What’s to explain?

          Nov 06, 2017 06:58 PM

          It’s OK Mathew.
          Good Luck To You.

            Nov 06, 2017 06:03 PM

            Thanks, you too. If your studies are successful, you’ll see why there’s nothing to explain.

            This is convenient; I just noticed that Tom Woods, a very good “Austrian”, did a show about BC today and bought some a long time ago. Again, there’s nothing to explain.


        Nov 06, 2017 06:27 PM


        What part of “all financial markets are manipulated” has you so confused?

        Do you actually believe gold was suppressed from $252 to $1923 and silver suppressed from $4 to $50?

        How much money does a convicted con man have to lose for his followers for you to wake up?

          Nov 06, 2017 06:47 PM

          Mr Moriarty:
          Once again I will repeat that all markets are managed,rather than manipulated.
          Call it what you want.I believe the run in Gold and Silver happened because the regulators were not enforcing position limits.That is why Bear Stearns imploded.Another thing we are not privy to is who is facilitating the laundering of stolen Gold.

    Nov 06, 2017 06:49 AM

    True John

    Its possible, not that I have any inside info, but its possible that bitcoin is just the beginning of moving completely digital with currencies.

    I have thought for a long time that we need a new system, more people are just now figuring out just how much the political system is corrupt.

    I wonder how long it takes for people to realize there is no dif between capitalism and anything else, its all the same, the bankers dont care who makes the laws/rules.
    Big picture anyway.

    As long as people refuse to deal with the banks the people are stuck.
    Bitcoin was supposed to offer a new system, what we dont know is if the banks provided that option or not.

      Nov 06, 2017 06:05 PM

      Satoshi released his white paper to the world October 31,2008 during the banking crisis.Kinda ironic with the timing and all.
      The banks nor the Government had a clue what was happening.
      This was a new internet protocol being promoted by geeky computer nerds. Smart ones at that.
      By the time the Banks caught on to the magnitude of Bitcoin,things had progressed beyond what anybody thought was possible.
      This is a testament to the power of the network effect.
      The speed at which this happened caught many of people off guard.
      I like the quote”It was like an iceberg rolling over.”

    Nov 06, 2017 06:27 PM

    Ya, I followed the story John.
    Unless somebody has come out with some kind of proof as to who he was, nobody knows who Satoshi was/is, as far as I am aware.

    There were suspicions that it was banks all along, a clue that it was, is like gold, the banks dont buy it all up.

    Both are 100% free to them, so there has to be a reason they dont.

      Nov 06, 2017 06:43 PM

      Banks don’t write code.They write loans. Some of the brightest people that the bank had trained to write code have walked away and joined the Bitcoin Core Team.
      Satoshi was probably a small group of individuals as there different parts of Bitcoin that require specific knowledge,where as it would be unlikely that one person did this by himself.
      I will correct you also that Gold is made up by Chemical law and Bitcoin is made up of Mathematical law.
      The thesis would be that numbers are real,but not corporeal.
      Dr Adam Back has been involved with the Cryptos for a considerable amount of time.
      The people involved with early Bitcoin adoption have never worked for the Government or the Banking Cabal.

    Nov 06, 2017 06:57 PM

    I will add that for the Banks to “Buy” up the Bitcoin,they would have to control the miners.As the miners are the ones who actually control the supply.
    The Bitcoin Community is fully aware of this and they are not going to let the miners dictate protocol.The miners do the mining,but it is the Bitcoin Community that writes the code.

      Nov 06, 2017 06:10 PM

      And it must be said that the Bitcoin Community is an Open Source Community that is Peer Reviewed.
      Those that can’t cut the mustard usually move on and start an “Alt Coin”
