Always Question Financial Advice From Mainstream Media Sources.WSJ Editorial: Some Fossil Fuel Food For Thought...
Hey all -- today we're veering off the retirement planning path yet again, but it's important, because, in the name of saving the planet, legislators and activists are logjamming LNG pipelines, thereby cutting off supply, thereby causing the use of coal. What's worse for the climate? Natural gas or coal? Anyway, this is a little editorial in the Wall Street Journal I found this weekend and I thought you'd find it interesting... And here's where you can read it: https://www.wsj.com/articles/fossil-fuels-toby-rice-eqt-pipeline-natural-gas-lng-emissions-reduction-climate-change-warren-granholm-energy-prices-white-house-council-environmental-quality-11650634990?st=baqfsfdum3scouc&reflink=desktopwebshare_permalink (https://www.wsj.com/articles/fossil-fuels-toby-rice-eqt-pipeline-natural-gas-lng-emissions-reduction-climate-change-warren-granholm-energy-prices-white-house-council-environmental-quality-11650634990?st=baqfsfdum3scouc&reflink=desktopwebshare_permalink) Remember, go to http://www.rogueretirementlounge.com/crypto (www.rogueretirementlounge.com/crypto) to sign up for your own Blockfi account.

Why I Don't Trust Financial Advisors (Or At Least Some Of Them)
Okay my friends, in today's podcast I'm probably gonna come off like a complete a-hole, but I can't help myself. I recently heard a podcast, hosted by a financial advisor, that had some really bad (in my opinion) information in it. Like, REALLY bad. But to prove that I'm not a total jerk, I wanted to promote three REALLY GOOD retirement planning podcasts that are hosted by financial advisors that I really like and trust: 1) Finishing Well with Hans Sheil https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/finishing-well/id1345523361 (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/finishing-well/id1345523361) 2) Retirement Revealed with Jeremy Keil https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/retirement-revealed/id1488769337 (https://podcasts.apple.com/ca/podcast/retirement-revealed/id1488769337) 3) The Retirement Answer Man with Roger Whitney https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/retirement-answer-man/id834314596 (https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/retirement-answer-man/id834314596) Okay, after showing my nice side I get to dressing down this other podcast I listened to that was filled with (in my opinion) terrible information. One thing I do talk about is the great Fidelity report called "Bitcoin First." Here's a link to where you can view or download it: https://www.fidelitydigitalassets.com/bin-public/060_www_fidelity_com/documents/FDAS/bitcoin-first.pdf (https://www.fidelitydigitalassets.com/bin-public/060_www_fidelity_com/documents/FDAS/bitcoin-first.pdf) So as I mention in this episode, I'm really not doing this to be a jerk. It's not my style to hammer on some other dude's retirement podcast. And this will probably never happen again. I just wanted to point out that you need to VERIFY information. You need to do your own research. And most important, just because someone has a three-letter acronym after their name DOESN'T mean they know what they're talking about. And in defense of this kid, he's barely 30 years old, if that, so we can all give him a break for being young. Again, do your own research and take control of your finances.

Your Wealth, Seized? And Central Bank Digital Currency Rundown: What The Hell Is Programmable Money?
So you've heard about the Canadian Government invoking the Emergencies Act... You've heard about them freezing bank accounts and even freezing crypto wallets. Is that really possible? Yes. Could your government freeze or seize your retirement savings? Most definitely. So DON'T HAVE WRONG THOUGHTS, DON'T SAY WRONG THINGS, AND DON'T ENGAGE IN TRACEABLE FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS WITH WRONG PEOPLE. Got it? Good. Today we're gonna talk about this. But this topic, as uncomfortable as it is, opens the door to another uncomfortable topic: CENTRAL BANK DIGITAL CURRENCIES. They're coming, my friend. We still have a couple years, or, well, at least probably one year. So it's time to start preparing yourself. Today I'm going to help you understand how the mechanics of CBDCs might work, and how programmability will help your government keep more of "their share" of your money, while keeping an eye on exactly where you spend your money. This episode is kinda long, but it'll be educational, I promise. Especially the CBDC part. Grab a beer and let's do this.
