Is Trump America’s Last Chance for a 1776 Revival?

Is Trump America’s Last Chance for a 1776 Revival?

On the latest radio program, Richard Maybury and Michael Oliver return, while Patrick J. Cruickshank visits for the first time.

Prior to the election, Jim Rickards opined on this show that Donald Trump may be the last chance America has to return to its 1776 roots as a republic. The odds then didn’t seem great for a Trump victory but with the unexpected happening, Richard points out why the basis for a true revolution and a return to the values of our Founding Fathers may actually be in place. But there are big differences between now and 1776 that could derail those efforts and lead to an unhappy ending.

We asked Richard how the political storms that lie ahead may impact our investments. Patrick talks about Chilean Metals’ highly prospective iron oxide copper and gold exploration properties in Chile and Nova Scotia and the always reliable Oliver gives us his latest views on gold and other major markets of concern to regular listeners.

 Richard J. Maybury is the publisher of U.S. & World Early Warning Report for Investors. He has written several entry-level, common sense books on United States economics, law, and history. His writing style is mostly in an epistolary form, usually as an uncle writing to his nephew, answering questions. Maybury had taught economics in high school. Failing to find a book with a clear explanation of economics, he wrote one himself. Some of his books include Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career & Financial Security—a book that is basically the foundation for his other books about the model perspective; Higher Law, Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?—a book that explains the history of the United States economic model and how it was based on free-market Austrian economics; and Whatever Happened to Justice?—about his naturalist philosophical viewpoints regarding the foundations of America’s legal system, British Common Law, the law of the Franks, and early Christian Ireland.

Patrick J. Cruickshank, MBA, CFM has been the CEO of Chilean Metals Inc. since March 2016. Since 2013, he has been active as Pres. and CEO of Cogonov Inc., successfully raising over 2 million dollars and negotiating 2 joint ventures on 3 of its Iron Oxide Copper Gold (IOCG) projects in Nova Scotia in a challenging economic environment, also serving as CEO and Director at Minotaur Atlantic Exploration Ltd. For the past 5 years, Mr. Cruickshank has been instrumental in the Private Equity space in the US & Canada. Most recently, Energy & Mining Resource companies, both in Canada & Texas.  With a highly extensive background in the financial industry, he has over 15 years working in the securities industry with Merrill Lynch, Citigroup Smith Barney and several other securities firms and was Founder of Commonwealth Advisors LLC in the United States.

Michael Oliver entered the financial services industry in 1975 on the Futures side, joining E.F. Hutton’s International Commodity Division, NYC. He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton’s Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX.

In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.

In 1992 he was asked by the Financial VP and head of Wachovia Bank’s Trust Department to provide soft dollar research to Wachovia. Within a year Oliver shifted from brokerage to full-time technical research. MSA has provided its proprietary technical research services to financial and asset management clients continually since 1992. Oliver is the author of The New Libertarianism: Anarcho-Capitalism
