In this podcast, economist, columnist, radio host and international conference speaker Jerry Robinson of “Follow the Money Weekly” ponders the demise of the bankrupt American war machine.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. military is shifting its war machine to the Far East, and while the move is being sold as a way to “contain North Korea,” Robinson points out that keen observers know the elephant in the room is China, the real target.

Then Robinson is joined by Tom Cloud, who provides his analysis of the week’s action in the precious metals markets. He also explains why this is just the beginning of another major bull run in all of the precious metals.

Financial Planner and P.A.C.E. Investment Portfolio Manager Jay Peroni provides listeners with an unique investing idea: how to make a potential 20 percent or more in the next 12-18 months with a company in a recession-resistant industry.

Later, Financial Advisor John Bearss shares six reasons why it may be time for you to review your current life insurance coverage. With many innovations in the life insurance industry over the last several years, you may be able to qualify for a more cost-effective policy.

Finally, Gerald Celente joins the program to talk about the latest geopolitical and economic events that are shaking the globe. Topics include: America’s growing warfare state, the threat of a new American Civil War, gold prices, the timing of QE3, and who will win the U.S. presidential election.

Celente’s prediction: President Barack Obama wins re-election in November.
