This show may make you question whether or not you still reside on planet earth. On today’s podcast we’ll discuss the following:
▶ General News: Hillary Clinton’s State Department spent millions of taxpayer dollars on lavish goods and frivolous initiatives, such as a $5.4 million “no-bid contract for crystal stemware” and $630,000 to “increase Facebook likes on four State Department pages.” Clinton herself helped fundraise for a Virginia PAC that donated big money to the wife of the FBI official who oversaw the investigation into the personal email server she used while heading the State Department. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter ordered the Pentagon to suspend – NOT END – SUSPEND – efforts to retrieve enlistment bonuses given to thousands of California National Guard members during the height of the Iraq war.
▶ Economics: CBS reports that anecdotal evidence is building that the American consumer has suddenly pulled back heading into the critical holiday shopping season. Corporate earnings confirm this. Measures of sentiment confirm this. And retail sales data confirm this. Britain’s economy grew faster than expected in the three months after its vote to leave the European Union despite concern that uncertainty would weigh on business activity. I’ll share some numbers on why silver and gold are good investments vs the stock market – at least for the average Joe.
▶ Global Issues: China’s navy is gearing up for drills near the disputed islands in the South China Sea, less than a week after a US guided-missile destroyer sailed through the waters where Beijing asserted sovereignty in what US called a ‘freedom of navigation’ patrol. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, who is also a U.S. Army general, told defense ministers that Russia was seeking, in military parlance, “escalation dominance.” And Vice Admiral James Foggo, who heads the U.S. Navy fleet in Europe, said he expected Moscow to react negatively when Washington breaks ground on a missile defense site in Poland in late November.
This and a whole bunch much more!!!
