    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 03/09/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    A trip to Home Depot this weekend revealed the shocking news that while some incandescent (Edison) bulbs are still available, our choice of bulbs has come down to: awful compact fluorescent bulbs that are hazardous to the environment and cost more; halogen bulbs, which cost many times the price of a regular bulb; and, the new and improved $50 LED bulb. While the LED bulbs are cool, 50 bucks is an outrageous price to be on the bleeding edge of technology. And for what purpose, to cut power consumption to stop non-existent global warming? I hope you're as outraged as...

    Julian D.W. Phillips of and acclaim has a long memory. He's been actively involved and profitting from world financial and metal markets since 1971. He's one of a few who has vivid memories of the last gold bull market and subsequent gold bear market. Being an international financier, he has a unique perspective that many Americans and Westerners will find disquieting. With talk of gold confiscation in the air, Julian believes the US Government might want your gold because they will need it to pay back Germany and other allies. The US has been storing their gold in...

    Mish Shedlock and I had a big laugh at the Fed's expense today. They announced they might buy bonds differently, printing up money out of thin air, and then sterilizing the proceeds of their bond purchases to prevent inflation from taking hold. However, this is pure folly. If their intention is to give business lending a jump-start, it will have the opposite effect because many businesses looking to borrow are not credit worthy. Those that are credit worthy aren't interested in borrowing since they have no profitable avenues in which to invest it. Like putting the toothpaste back in the...

    "First, let’s nail down the difference between a conspiracy theorist and a broad-minded person. A conspiracy theorist says, “Of course, Andrew Breitbart was assassinated. Look how many people benefit from his absence. He told CPAC he had videos that could doom Obama’s re-election chances. He told Sinclair News three weeks before he died, ‘Wait till March 1st!’ He died on March 1st. You’re a blind, cowardly idiot if you can’t see he was murdered.”

While the future may always be uncertain, especially in these tumultuous times, there are many reasons to be hopeful and grateful that the super-trends of the past 30 years are ending. While growth may be slowing down around the world, the debt illusion has been popped. People are no longer rushing headlong into over leveraging their futures.

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 3/7/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    Rush Limbaugh's insults and poor language towards a progressive poster child is still resonating. However, there isn't really a political debate occurring. Rather, it is simply emotional outrage masked as political discourse. This is exactly what's been wrong with the political system for the last 80 plus years: issues are no longer properly analyzed. The Statists have done their best to obfuscate the real debate because they have made every issue a personal attack. The real debate is whether you should work for yourself or you should work for the State. Do your rights flow from nature? Or are your...

    Obama: I Can't Be Expected to Comment on Both Rush Limbaugh's and My DNC Chairwoman's Remarks MAR 6, 2012 • BY JOHN MCCORMACK At today's White House press conference, President Obama was not asked a single question about the public policy aspects of Obamacare's new mandate forcing employers, including most religious institutions, to pay for abortion pills and contraception. Rather, he was asked by two different reporters about some unseemly rhetoric surrounding the debate. First, Obama was asked about Rush Limbaugh's degrading comments about Georgetown Law student and liberal activist Sandra Fluke. Obama talked at some length about why Limbaugh's...

    Late Night: Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart Go After Rush Limbaugh March 6, 2012 Rush Limbaugh has dominated the news cycle since late last week, when he called Georgetown law student and birth control advocate Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute" on his syndicated radio show. The insults -- extreme even by Limbaugh's standards -- have led to a widespread backlash and an exodus of sponsors from the show. Predictably, his words also have become fodder for Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, who took aim at the bloviating radio host on Monday night. Calling Limbaugh "the poster boy for contraception,"...

"Do you believe Rush Limbaugh's apology to the Georgetown student is sufficient and heartfelt? Do you agree with the number of sponsors who agreed to stop supporting his show?

Andy reiterates that short term charts are meaningless, and he explains what we're seeing today is simply follow-through operation. The 200-day moving average of the precious metals, gold and silver, has been very consistent over the past eleven years; these are commodities that have rarely been under their 200-day moving average. Effectively, Da Boyz are not only painting the charts, they are trying to take your money!...

    We start with a brief critique on the tempest in a teapot that was set off by Rush Limbaugh's derisive comments about a 30 year old student who testified before the US Senate, demanding that college insurance plans be forced to pay for contraceptives. While it was clear that her testimony was a set-up, to distract the American People from focusing on the collapsing economy, the creeping totalitarianism, and the total unfettered government corruption, it's even more clear that Rush took the bait. Becoming a veritable dump site for statist and collectivist attacks, Rush lost advertisers and was forced to...

While gold was down slightly, most other markets performed well. No doubt the ever increasing supply of fresh fiat currency has been feeding the rally. Even with the world wide economic slow down, the demand for commodities has held steady around the world. Natural Gas took it on the chin, while the flaming oil rally eased off in the last couple of days. Due to Iranian tensions and Middle East uncertainties,...

    If you bought a lot of precious metals on February 28, 2012, then Leap Day was your nightmare come true. Gold down over $80 per ounce and Silver down over $2. However, today is a new day, and they're both up. While it may take a while for them to achieve new highs, they are quickly going through technical resistance points, and it could happen a lot faster than any of the "experts" believe possible. The key is to accumulate precious metals over time, never make big one-time purchases, unless you can do so at extremely attractive terms and prices....

It's indisputable that the paper silver and gold markets are dominated by certain non-profit sellers, whose main mission is to make the reserve currency look good. For that reason, when the traders see this series of events occurring, they...

    Leap Day, February 29, 2012 was a momentous day for the precious metals markets. Gold and silver were slammed from 10am EST onward. Millions of ounces of unbacked paper gold and silver stampeded into the markets, destroying all weak holders in the process. But one must wonder how many real weak metals holders are left. Federal Reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke testified before Congress today, and coincidentally, precious metals raids often occur before, during, and after his testimony. It's interesting to note the purchasing power of silver has been increasing over the past 50 years. In the early 1960's one silver...

    Byron King of Agora Financial is a geologist by trade, and he has actually been to the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve (ANWR). Contrary to popular belief, the ANWR is a desolate place because very few tourists ever make it up there. So the price America is currently paying for NOT developing this extremely valuable resource is amazingly high. Without the added production from ANWR, the Alaska Pipeline may be close to closing, which would be an extreme loss to the nation and our energy security. While energy exploration and production always involves risks, they have been greatly reduced by better...

The film is based on John Heilemann and Mark Halperin`s book, which chronicles John McCain`s failed bid for the White House in 2008.

    "Ranting" Andy Hoffman may not always be right, but he's never in doubt. Andy has been following the precious metals markets for too long to be fooled by the obvious hand of governmental sponsored manipulation. According to Andy, unbacked paper contracts are losing their affect on the physical metals prices. While it's been a long time coming, it's obvious now the market is getting away from the manipulators and is seeking its true free market value. As we all know, markets can be manipulated in the short run. However in the long term, they will trade at their free market...

    Leave it to our current crop of mental health professionals not to understand self-sacrifice. The Denver Post recently recalled two separate murderous incidents where two women, Jaquie Creazzo and Jeannie VanVelkinburgh, unsuccessfully tried to intervene and prevent the unrelated murders of strangers. Both women were left paralyzed during their noble attempts. “Why did they do it?” is the question being pondered by experts, according to Leaf Van Boven, associate professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at the University of Colorado. Obviously the concept of altruism is lost on many intellectuals. “They may have an acute emotionally intense feeling of right and...

    Yours truly is getting discovered by the alternative media; I sat down for several interviews last week. One of my favorite pro-freedom sites honored me with an in-depth discussion about how to reclaim our freedom. Sean, founder of, is a master interviewer, and his videos have been viewed by millions. He understands exactly what's happening and is doing everything in his power to help people awaken. It really comes down to a scene from The Matrix, will you take the red pill or the blue pill? The red pill will help you awaken to reality and the blue...
  • 7 Most Incredible Tank Graveyards on Earth

    7 Most Incredible Tank Graveyards on Earth In certain corners of the globe you'll find the strangest of military cemeteries – places filled not with the bodies of fallen troops but littered with the carcasses of abandoned tanks. These once-formidable weapons of war no longer strike fear into the hearts of opposing forces; their days of rolling inexorably onwards on the teeth of steel tracks are over. Now, the armor of these behemoths is rusting and corroded, their hatches all but sealed from lack of use, and their controls never again to be manned by commanders in battle. WWII tank...

    Kagan Must Recuse Herself from Obamacare Case -Sen. Jeff Sessions February 23, 2012 As solicitor general of the United States, Justice Elena Kagan served as the head of an office responsible for formulating the Obama administration’s legal defense of its domestic agenda priority — Obamacare. It could be no surprise to President Obama who appointed her to the Supreme Court that any former solicitor general would have many conflicts for years to come. Now, the Court will soon hear a constitutional challenge to the health-care law. Despite mounting evidence of her substantial participation in the administration’s legal defense of that...

    The Myth and Reality of the Catholic Vote Editor's Note: Stephen S. Schneck is director of the Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies at The Catholic University of America. By Stephen S. Schneck, Special to CNN For years, pollsters and political scientists have been stumped about Catholics. On one hand, it’s been pretty clear that as American Catholics go, so goes the nation. George W. Bush narrowly won the Catholic vote in 2004 and won a second term. Barack Obama narrowly won the Catholic vote in 2008 and, with it, the White House. It’s easy to see why Catholics...
