Video of the Day – Bitcoin: A Banker’s Worst Fear

It’s been a big week for Bitcoin. Several days ago I noted the significance of Chinese web services giant Baidu accepting bitcoin for its Jiasule service. With a $53 billion market cap, I believe this is the largest company globally to-date to accept the four year old crypto-currency. It is also highly significant that bitcoin is now trading higher than it was just before the latest flash crash triggered by the arrest of Ross Ulbricht, the alleged proprietor of the Silk Road.  

There’s no better way to top off such a exciting and dynamic period for Bitcoin than with this new, excellent mini-documentary. The following video will be enjoyed greatly by newcomers to the space as well as those with advanced awareness. Enjoy!

 

American Dependency: A Food Stamp Micro-Doc

My friend Dan at Future Money Trends has just put together a fantastic micro-documentary on the rise of our food stamp nation and the far reaching consequences to society. From the art of selling excess food stamp dollars at the end of each month, to JP Morgan profiting from the program as a line of business, this video covers it all. I’ve written about food stamps on several occasions, and have highlighted how they are merely a way to boost corporate profits at the taxpayers expense. More corporate welfare and crony capitalism. My three most popular articles on food stamps are below:

Gold and Silver Update: Interview with David Morgan and Amir Adnani

In this interview, we are fortunate enough to get detailed perspectives on what is going on in the precious metals markets from two experts in the field.  Wearing the analyst’s hat, we have the highly respected David Morgan who fills us in on his latest observations as well as how he thinks investors should split capital between physical metals and the mining shares.  From the mining industry, we have Amir Adnani, CEO of Uranium Energy Corp and Chairman of Brazil Resources.  He explains how both of these companies have been aggressive in making acquisitions over the past couple of years in this depressed market, moves that will set them up for outsized performance once the market turns around and prices begin to reflect fundamentals.  A really great two-part interview.  Enjoy!

Meet Gary Johnson: The Libertarian for President Polling at 7% in Colorado

I haven’t endorsed anyone for President yet, but the guy that catches my eye more than any other at the moment is Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.  While people will say a vote for Gary Johnson is a “wasted vote” or a “vote for Obama,” neither of these claims are accurate.  First of all, a “wasted vote” is to play the system’s rigged game and vote for the “lesser of two evils” between two awful candidates that fundamentally disagree with me on every single issue of importance.  To the second point, there is a lot of evidence that suggests Johnson pulls from both parties, and in fact mostly from Independent voters (who probably wouldn’t vote anyway), with him pulling more away from Obama in my home state of Colorado where he is polling at 7% as of late!

I don’t like labels and I prefer not to attach myself to any.  While I agree more with the Libertarian platform than the other options, no political philosophy is perfect.  The point is that the Democrats and Republicans are two big party elite shams that pit the populace purposely against one another on emotional social issues so as to never debate what really matters.  Gary Johnson is virulently opposed to Gestapo type legislation like the NDAA, which Obama is fighting aggressively in court to keep, he is against the Federal Reserve system, in favor or real capitalism where there are no massive bank bailouts or institutionalized socialism for the rich and austerity for the middle class.  He is the only commonsense guy running for President that sees the nation’s future in a similar vein to so many of my generation and younger if we would just wake up.

Gary Johnson has recently polled around 5% nationally.  While this is impressive for a guy with zero media coverage, he needs 15% to get in the debates.  If nothing else, it would be amazing to see him up there with the other two puppets.  If we spread his message perhaps he can get there.

Below is a interview my friend Dan Ameduri recorded with Mr. Johnson at the Freedom Fest in Vegas.  His candor is refreshing and without a doubt you will know where this man stands on the issues.  Please take the time.  Our nation’s future is at stake.

Don’t Live in Fear: New In-Person Interview with Future Money Trends

While I was at Freedom Fest in Vegas, I was able to meet Dan Amerduri of Future Money Trends for the first time.  We also had a chance to record an in-person interview, which is the first time I have done that format.  We cover all the bases in this one, but the main message I try to convey is that “awake” people must not live in fear.  The system owns you emotionally when you live in fear.  Knowing that the system is a giant ponzi scheme run by sociopaths is scary, but life is short.  You can and must enjoy life while fighting these criminals, otherwise they win.  Give yourself to love, compassion and truth.  Those are the things TPTB hate the most.

I think this is one of the best interviews I have done, so please take the time.

In Liberty, Mike
