As the major elected officials, business leaders, and politicos descend on Washington D.C. for the annual CPAC conference, you will hear many stories about the status of the conservative movement, how Republican congressmen can’t seem to implement their agenda, and who’s running for president in 2012.  Lost in the shuffle of all political manuevering that goes on at CPAC and Washington D.C. for that matter, we’ve decided to remind our viewers of the campaign promises and policy changes that many Republicans promised from balanced budgets to spending cuts that have yet to be implemented.  For your viewing pleasure we have Presidential hopeful and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, CPAC headliner Rep. Allen West, Tea Party favorite Rep. Ron Paul, Americans for Tax Reform chief Grover Norquist, and conservative leader and former Presidential Candidate Steve Forbes. 

Sen. Rick Santorum – Former U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania & 2012 Presidential Hopeful

Rep. Allen West – U.S. House of Representatives & CPAC Headliner

The chart doesn’t lie.  Just look at the Dow and what it’s been doing this year.

First it goes up, then takes a big drop down, has a huge run up, then takes another dive, and so on and so on.  It seems as though the market has been more volatile than ever, leaving investors with very little direction.

I mean just when you think you’ve got the market figured out, it goes in the exact opposite direction.

For instance, many people are now fully aware that our economy is in bad shape.  Our national debt is approaching $14 trillion dollars, 25% of homes have more debt than what they are worth, there is at least $1 trillion of hidden losses in Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, and to boot, unemployment has been at around 10% for the better part of this year.

Yet with all of that bad news, the DOW has rallied from lows of 6500 just last year in March 2009, and has for some reason or another been atop of 10,000 for most of the last year even with all of the volatility.

So what is an investor to do?

One of the adages on Wall Street is that information that everyone knows is not worth knowing.

The reason behind that is because if everybody already knows something, then most likely, that information has already been factored into the price of a stock.  So when many people were trying to sell stocks and go short the market because of bad fundamental news (unemployment, national debt, etc.) and lost a lot of money, they didn’t understand that the market had already factored in that information into stock prices.

The problem that many people have is that they decide what direction they think that the market is going to go in and then find information and data that support that idea.  That’s how many brokers and so-called “experts” have led their clients astray.

There are certain key data that will tell you where the market is going (industrial production, job postings, etc.).  The key is to be able to look at that data without any preconceived notions.

That’s what we do at The Mangru Letter.  We look at the market for what it is and not for what we want it to be.  If the market is telling us to buy, we buy.  If it is telling us to sell, we sell. (CLICK HERE FOR A SPECIAL MANGRU LETTER OFFER)

By staying true to being unbiased, that’s how myself along with my associates have helped thousands of Americans to generate substantial gains while keeping them informed about life-changing economic and geopolitical developments.  Now, you too can have access to the same type of information that helped investors to avoid the big downturn in the stock market during 2008 and to participate in the dramatic increase in stock prices during 2009.

That’s why I’d like to invite you to join us here at The Mangru Letter – a service that will help you to grow the value of your assets during both up and down markets and that will enable you to protect your principal when others are incurring significant losses.

The difference between this letter and many others you will see out there is that we make no outrageous promises.

You won’t turn $30 into $300,000 in just one year.  There are no 10,000 % returns.

What we have to offer is honest, solid, unbiased market direction.  We use time-tested proven methodologies that preserve wealth and grow it for the long term.  That’s what we do, and that’s what we’re good at.

So while many newsletters have decided to charge anywhere from $500 to even $2000 per year for “get rich quick” type of advice, we want to make our service available to everyone from the seasoned trader to the mom and pop investor.

That’s why we’ve reduced the price of our service to $99.99 per year, which comes out to 28 cents a day, a small price to pay to potentially save thousands in losses and have the ability to start generating substantial and consistent market returns.

John Browne Commentary: Band-Aids For Everyone May 13, 2010

BAND-AIDS FOR EVERYONE
By John Browne, Euro-Pacific Capital (www.europac.net)
As the health of much of the global economy weakens on a daily basis, political leadership increasingly ignores the source of the malady and instead focuses on short term “band-aid” remedies. These measures which may buy a few months, or years, of relative well being, will convince the public that problems have been solved and will thereby take pressure off governments to make the needed structural changes.

The recently announced $1 trillion EU bailout is a perfect example of this “band-aid” approach. The just concluded general election in the United Kingdom is another. The inconclusive UK result, which creates a Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition, will be an unhappy, unquestionably temporary arrangement. Similarly, the EU bailout will continue to infuriate Northern Europeans, who may ultimately push for a breakup of the Union.

NuLabour (what the center-drifting Labour Party of Tony Blair has been branded) took a spectacular beating as a result of the clumsy stewardship of now former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown. Mr. Brown, whom I knew as a political bruiser in his early days in the House of Commons, had led Britain far down the road to economic ruin. As a very powerful Chancellor of the Exchequer under Tony Blair, he introduced many stealth taxes to finance a wave of high government spending. Seemingly operating as an unelected Prime Minister, he unleashed massive spending programs and interfered with UK banks in ways that worsened the effects of the financial crisis.

After Brown formally succeeded Blair in June of 2007, he soon became one of the most unpopular Prime Ministers in more than a century. The fact that David Cameron and the Conservatives were unable to capitalize on this weakness to secure a massive victory must be seen as a major failure.

Furthermore, Cameron was so anxious for personal power that he accepted a power sharing arrangement with the Liberal Democrats, a party with many key views to the left of NuLabour. This will lead to damaging compromises that, over time, will likely threaten both his parliamentary and grass roots support. Indeed cracks already are showing in the Conservative ranks.

The fragile coalition likely will have little appetite for the tough economic decisions that need to be made, including the adoption of austerity measures that must surely accompany any meaningful attempt to curb the unhealthy deficit. This political paralysis will leave the UK increasingly exposed to default and economically ruinous inflation. Those deemed to be responsible for any continued economic weakness will likely to be voted out in the next election, which could come as soon as 12 months. Labour’s status as the opposition party may be brief.

In short, personal ambition has driven Cameron to fall into a major political trap. He would have been well advised to shun a coalition and leave the political costs of acute austerity and abject poverty to a NuLabour/Liberal Democrat coalition who would be cast out at the next election, leaving a much stronger and unencumbered Conservative Party in power for years to come.

The massive EU/ IMF band-aid to insulate default contagion will likely share a similar fate. The move, which will prevent the needed restructuring of the EU’s “Club Med” countries, will destroy the Euro and unleash massive inflation. The furious spike in gold prices in the days after the EU capitulation indicates the depth and breadth of this consensus. Worse yet, in exchange for sowing the seeds for disunion, the bailout will achieve nothing significant.

The package may well insulate Greece from market default for some 18 months, but it will do little to change Greek habits. Even at almost a trillion dollars, it will prove insufficient to meet the likely cumulative needs of Portugal, Spain, Italy, Ireland, France and the UK.

Furthermore, despite their leaders’ willingness to protect the Club Med and the cohesion of the EU, the German population is increasingly angry. Indeed, as a result of her support for the Greek bailout, Chancellor Merkel suffered a serious electoral setback on May 9th.

In short both the UK conservatives and the EU appear to have been so tempted by achieving or retaining political power within their failed economic models that they have fallen into electoral traps that likely will threaten their political survival within the coming year. They may have bought themselves some time, but little else.
