Student Scores Big at Tax Deed Sale – Trash is Cash!

from Mike Gazzola’s Instant Equity: A Proven Real Estate Investment System

Mike talks about a student’s score at a recent tax deed sale. Through a quirk of the auction process, which Mike’s training covered in detail, his student was able to buy a property for just $10,600. It was a very rough property in a very good neighborhood. He put $20,000 into it and is renting it out for $850 per month. The property is now has a market value of around $80,000. It’s the secrets of the process where you make the money and Mike knows them all.

Daniel Greenfield – Hillary Clinton Is Her Own Worst Enemy

from Financial Survival Network

Daniel Greenfield writes, “Hillary Clinton is her own worst enemy. Just as Bill Clinton’s worst impulses did more to sabotage his presidency than any Republican, his wife’s worst impulses have always undermined her. Some couples balance out each other’s weaknesses, but Bill and Hillary enable each other’s misbehaviors. While Hillary enabled her husband’s abuse of women, Bill enabled her paranoia and obsessiveness.” Now her flailing campaign is retreating into paranoia and conspiracy theories. The Intelligence Community Inspector General, an Obama appointee, is accused of conspiring with Republicans. The rise of Bernie Sanders is being attributed to “dark money” and political enemies by Clintonworld. Hillary Clinton has a longstanding tendency to turn to a dark conspiratorial mindset when things don’t go her way. She blamed her husband’s affair with Monica Lewinsky on a “vast right-wing conspiracy”. Her close friend’s papers reveal that Hillary thought Bill had been “driven” to the affair by his “political adversaries”. It was easier for Hillary to blame her husband’s misbehavior on Republicans than to deal with reality. And her campaign is showing that her worldview hasn’t changed any since then.

Lowell Ponte – Is The US Becoming Baltimore?

from Financial Survival Network

Lowell Ponte’s new tome We’ve Seen The Future and it Looks a lot Like Baltimore explores the direction in which the country is heading and what you can expect to occur. Freedom of movement will be greatly restricted. Your ability to renounce your citizenship will be priced beyond affordability. And mass unemployment will become the rule, not the exception. The future does indeed look bleak, but all is not lost.

from Identity Theft Warriors

Heather Wagenhals returns. Just when you thought it was safe to eat your Big Mac, we find out that identity thieves have been breaching fast food company credit card systems. The new chip card reading systems aren’t working in many stores. As a result identity theft is continuing unabated. Heather said that the effort to be backward compatible, rather than simply replacing the existing system has been at the root of these problems.

“There’s Never Been a Change This Big, nor So Many People Unprepared.”

by Simon Black
Sovereign Man

I had an amazing time this weekend sharing the stage at an investment conference in Miami, with other speakers like Robert Kiyosaki, Peter Schiff, and G. Edward Griffin among others.

During a panel on the future of money and banking we discussed how the financial system is rapidly losing control of its own product, i.e. money, in the same way that the music industry has lost control of its product.

In the past there used to be a handful of large record labels that controlled the distribution of music across the world.

In the same way, our financial system was set up for a handful of banks to tightly control the distribution of money across the world to the point that no financial transaction could occur without a bank inserting itself in the middle.

Scaling a $9.5 Trillion Debt Wall

by Lisa Abramowicz
Bloomberg.com

Companies still have a little time before they must pay down the bulk of $9.5 trillion of debt maturing in the next five years. That’s the good news.

But it’s not getting any easier for these corporations to borrow, at least not in the U.S. In fact, many of these obligations are becoming harder and more expensive to repay at a time when companies face a historic pile of bonds and loans coming due.

This wave of debt coming due through 2020 is bigger than previous five-year schedules of debt maturities in 2013, 2014 and 2015, according to Standard & Poor’s data. It includes about $2.3 trillion of junk-rated debt, with about $418 billion of that rated B- or lower. And it peaks in 2020, with $2.1 trillion of debt coming due, which is greater than the peaks of the most recent previous maturity walls.

Hillary Clinton’s Speech to Goldman Sachs

Satire Alert!

by K.J. Noh
Counter Punch

The following is a leaked transcript of Hillary Clinton’s first speech to Goldman Sachs delivered on 6/04/2013. Two other speeches are also rumored to be in circulation awaiting publication. This is the full transcript. Secretary Clinton received $225,000 for this speech. The speech has not been confirmed or authenticated.

CLINTON: Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you very much, Lloyd [Blankfein], and thanks to everyone at Goldman Sachs for welcoming me today. I’m delighted to be back among friends, colleagues, collaborators, supporters, kindred spirits…

Let me jump right in. You know, over the past few months, there have been popular concerns about an economy that still isn’t delivering for the majority of Americans. It’s not “delivering” the way that they feel it should, that they feel entitled to. Most Americans that you speak to, speak a populist rhetoric that claims it is stacked for those at the top, that those of you here have it too good.

Why Precious Metal Bullion Dealers Are Not “Commodities”

by Andrew Hoffman
Miles Franklin

As you can imagine, we have seen a lot in 27 years of business – encompassing bull, bear, and “sideways” markets alike. In fact, most of our sales team – including our Co-Founder, David Schectman – started brokering Precious Metals in the early 1980s. Thus, when you call Miles Franklin, you will assuredly speak to someone who not only understands the myriad issues facing Precious Metal investors; but has, on average, more than 25 years of experience.

Throughout the years, dozens – if not hundreds – of competitors have come and gone. Some, due to the pressures of bear markets; some, poor management; some, inadequate financing; and others, shady – and at times, illegal – business practices. Given how difficult it is selling Precious Metals to a paper-centric society; where prices are suppressed by the government; and anti-gold propaganda ubiquitous; the fact that we’ve survived and thrived should tell you all you need to know about our work ethic, business principles, and perseverance.

Pending Home Sales Sink 2.5 Percent, Economists Expected Plus 0.5 Percent

by Mike ‘Mish’ Shedlock
Mish Talk

The pending home sales report was a shock to economists this morning. The Econoday Consensus estimate for existing home sales was a rise of 0.5 percent. Instead, the index sank 2.5 percent, well outside the entire range of estimates from 0.4 percent to 1.5 percent.

Highlights

Pending sales of existing homes slowed in January, down an unexpected 2.5 percent to an index level of 106.0 in a decline offset but only in part by an 8-tenths upward revision to December to plus 0.9 percent. Econoday forecasters were expecting a much better reading, at a consensus plus 0.5 percent for January sales. Sales in the month fell in three of the four regions with only the South in the plus column. Year-on-year, pending sales are up only 1.4 percent. Today’s report is yet another disappointment for a sector that, despite high employment and low mortgage rates, is getting off to a flat start for 2016.

Looking For A Veterans Charity? TeamRWB

by Karl Denninger
Market-Ticker.org

This is how it’s done right.

87.7% expense ratio on program expenses, only 3.6% on fundraising, and under 10% on G&A (8.7). That means nearly $9 of every $10 taken in goes to actual programs rather than either paying salaries or lining a professional “fundraiser” pocket.

An awful lot of “charities” really exist to do little more than take your money and convert it into profits for the fundraisers — or ridiculous salaries and perks for the people who work there. That’s legal but unlike the charity itself firms that raise funds for them do not have to account for where their money goes or the margin they earn on their efforts. G&A expense is real and people do need to be paid but should a “charity” really be paying out six — or even seven — figure salaries, lavishly spending on travel and entertainment, or similarly providing things for themselves rather than those they claim to be serving?

Eurozone Slides Back Into Deflation

by Peter Spence, Economics Correspondent
Telegraph.co.uk

The eurozone lurched back into deflation this month, putting more pressure on the European Central Bank to ramp up stimulus when it meets next week.

Prices fell by 0.2pc in the year to February, according to figures published by Eurostat. The decline confounded economists, who had expected prices to remain steady.

The return to deflation followed inflation of 0.3pc in the year to January, and was the result of a renewed slump in oil and gas prices. The closely watched core inflation measure, which strips out volatile energy prices, also fell.

Classic Video: Margaret Thatcher On The Euro And “Federal Europe” In 1990

by John Rubino
Dollar Collapse

As the eurozone spins out of control and Britain considers leaving the European Union, this is a good time to recall some of the debates that led up to the current mess. Here’s Margaret Thatcher being extraordinarily prescient about the common currency and European integration.

It’s safe to say that many in Britain are glad that Thatcher and her intellectual successors opposed “a federal Europe” — and that a growing number of Italians, Greeks and Spaniards wish they’d had Thatchers of their own.

The Risks Facing European Banks

by Bill Witherell
Financial Sense

Last week, European Central Bank (ECB) President Mario Draghi, responding to market concerns that had battered the shares and bonds of Eurozone banks, insisted that “We have to acknowledge that the regulatory overhaul since the start of the crisis has laid the foundations for durably increasing the resilience not only of individual institutions but also of the financial system as a whole.” No doubt that overhaul has been a positive development. But we are not completely reassured that the actions taken with respect to either timing or dimension have been sufficient to keep the currently visible strains from worsening into a serious crisis that could cripple the eurozone recovery.

Silver Prices in Five Years?

by Gary Christenson
Deviant Investor

What will the price of silver be in 2021? You can find articles suggesting the price of silver will be over $1,000 and under $10. Perhaps this is the wrong question.

A better approach: The global financial system is increasingly unstable and fragile, more so than in 2008. The important question is: How will governments, central banks and financial systems respond to the ongoing crisis? Future prices for silver are dependent upon the answer to that question. I suggest three possible scenarios.

Scenario One – status quo: The next five years could look much like the last 20 years. Politicians spend too much money, debt expands exponentially, central banks monetize debt and desperately inflate and reflate bubbles to maintain their power and continue the transfer of wealth from the many to the few. This is “status quo” or “more of the same” and indicates that silver prices will rise substantially, but not in a hyperinflation.
