-What was the idea with President Obama lifting all the sanctions?
-Will the ‘Boys’, the cabal, finally lose power this year?
-Question from a listener:Would you say a checking account in a Credit Union is “safer” than a bank?P.S. as long as you have the actual cabal in control does it really make a difference who becomes our President? Or do you think there are enough fractures in the control mechanism that there can be a chance for control over the Central Bank?
-Question from a listener:As I sit here in my little Igloo in Canada, I am thinking of using a good chunk of money with zero maturity in a checking account to put 5% min down payment on a place to live in the area of Toronto.
Buying something semi-numismatic for coins would be an option for liquidity purpose just in case.
The real estate market in Canada right now is crazy, what are your thoughts on the direction of it within the next 5 yrs or future?
It seems like we are treated like criminals if we unload coins and deposit into an account to be used for purchase purposes. It seems if we keep our money in accounts and be ‘good’ we lose to inflation. If we buy bullion we may have to be forced to turn it in and numismatic coins are only good for long term.
Is there really any way to win? Sure seems like the deck is stacked no matter what we do. I’m not really an equities man nor art collector. Perhaps collecting land is an option.
-How does the national debt affect he man on the street?Isn’t the national debt owed to private entities for the privilege of using our own money?
-Question from a listener: You claim the Constitution says money should be gold or silver coin.
[No State shall] make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts;“
But that is a restriction on the individual States of what they can make legal tender, and not a requirement that they make gold and silver coin legal tender. In the same section is the restriction which prohibits the States from coining money, so the only money that can be coined by government is by Congress, and includes more than just gold and silver.How does that apply to the federal government? Andrew responds
-Question from a listener:Have you ever heard of a fellow named Bo Polny? He proposes a theory of cycles, and how they converge. According to him, there are 21, 42, and other hundreds of years cycles. Which, he says will all converge this year. What I’m curious about, is his specific timing. He has named dates for bottoms in gold and silver. He is predicting a calamitous event on Oct 3, of this year. Andrew comments
-Andrew comments on the death of Supreme Court Judge Scalia. Was it murder? A listener poses the question
-Question from a listener:In recent months we have witnessed the unpegging of currencies such as the Swiss Franc and Chinese Yuan. Famed author, Jim Rickards recently predicted that the Saudi Rial is the next currency in the tank. What impact will the fall of Saudi Arabia have on the world economy? What will people do in these currency crisis nations to protect their savings if they cannot obtain gold & silver? Does Andy agree that the US Dollar will be the last currency in the tank? When the US Dollar collapses, what will the other currencies peg to?
and so much more!!
