12.08.21- Elon Musk: “Civilization
Is Going To Crumble”

Michael Snyder

Even billionaires like Elon Musk can see that the current state of affairs is completely and utterly unsustainable.  If we stay on the path that we are on, and there are absolutely no indications that we plan to reverse course, societal collapse is inevitable.  In fact, as I detail on a regular basis, societal collapse has already begun all around us.  Unfortunately, most people still can’t bring themselves to admit that it is actually happening.

I don’t always agree with everything that Elon Musk does or says, but he is certainly a very interesting guy. Read More

12.07.21- The Perfect Con Job
Charles Hugh Smith

One of the most famous examples of smart people being sucked into a bubble and losing a packet as a result is Isaac Newton’s forays in and out of the 1720 South Sea Bubble that is estimated to have sucked in 80–90% of the entire pool of investors in England.

Some have claimed that Newton did not buy early in 1711, sell in April 1720 for a nice profit and then sink the majority of his substantial fortune in the bubble as it peaked in summer, then suffering heavy losses as the bubble popped in September, but evidence supports this chain of events.

12.06.21- Sound Money Is A Prerequisite To Peace, Prosperity, And Freedom
Patrick Barron

There are many good recommendations promoted by Austrian school economists for improving the economy. Although we enjoy successes periodically, most--such as deregulating trucking and airline pricing--involve eliminating previous government interventions. These successes are to be celebrated, of course. But no one can deny that government intervention into the economy has continued, despite these occasional success stories. Read More

12.04.21- Why Web3 Will Change Everything (In Plain English)
Deep Pulusani

Some notes before we start: the term web3 today is sometimes used synonymously to mean cryptocurrency, blockchain tech, virtual reality/augmented reality & the metaverse. I find that people already have a more intuitive understanding of how VR/AR may change the future. Therefore, I’ll only be writing about how crypto & blockchain tech in the context of web3 will transform the future, since it’s a bit more challenging to understand and abstract in its concepts.

12.03.21- The Next Stage: Financializing Nature
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell

You will want to pay attention to this article that was shared by K.M., because it represents the next step in crony crapitalism, and because it’s by one of my favorite researchers, F. William Engdahl:

Before diving into this article, I want to bring something to the reader’s attention, something that I hope he will bear in mind as he reads this article because it bears directly on it. That something is “weather manipulation,” including that weather manipulation that occurs via financial instruments such as weather derivatives.  With that in mind, let’s extract a few paragraphs seriatim from Engdahl’s article that explain what the next financial jackboot to drop will be:  Read More

12.02.21- A Clearer Breakdown of What This Infrastructure Bill Is Really Funding
Corey Lynn

On November 5, 2021, Congress passed the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (H.R.3684) which was signed by the President on November 15. Yet another $1.2 trillion in nefarious “investments” to keep the money presses rolling. Most media sources summarize the 2740-page bill by lumping everything into spending categories, while leaving out some of the most critical data that shows what they really intend to fund. This report breaks down several key data and funding points, while drawing attention to some of the more questionable allocations. Read More

12.01.21- Here Comes the “Omicron” Variant
Jim Rickards

Last Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 905 points, or 2.53%. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq indexes had similar falls, about 2.25% each.

It was the worst Black Friday performance in history. Read More

11.30.21- Millions Of Americans Are Scrambling To Become Independent Of The System As It Collapses All Around Them
Michael Snyder

Once upon a time, all of the major institutions in our society were running super smoothly, and most people could rely on the fact that they would always be there when they were needed. But now things are going haywire everywhere that you turn. We are in the midst of the worst supply chain crisis in our entire history, the crime and violence in our largest urban areas is starting to spiral out of control, millions upon millions of our fellow citizens are absolutely seething with hate, and this pandemic is causing officials to make extremely irrational decisions that would have been unthinkable during “normal times”. Today, I was horrified to hear that one of my readers had just been denied access to a local hospital. Read More

11.29.21- Decoding Omicron
Chris Martenson

Everything We Know (and Don't Know) About the Latest Variant of Concern

Part I of this exclusive report details what we know about the new SARS-CoV-2 ‘variant of concern’.

News of this new variant absolutely smashed across the world stage on Wednesday/Thursday of the US Thanksgiving holiday week.

The wall of coverage was intense and saturating. Every major print and news video outlet in every western nation covered this new variant in-depth and in urgent, if not overtly fearful tones. Read More

11.27.21- Weekend Rant: As America Goes Through World's Biggest Power Grab Since Attila The Hun, Doctors And Scientists Speak Words Of Truth About 'The Vax' That For Most Americans Will Be Too Hard To Handle
Don Boys, Ph.D.

Those Pushing For Tyranny Will Never Tell Us What 'The Vax' REALLY Does To The Human Body 

I have not been vaccinated for COVID-19 and will not do so, but not because I am anti-vaccine. I have had dear friends die of COVID who had not been vaccinated, and others died who got the jab, dying of COVID. Read More

11.26.21- The Profound Health Benefits of Being Grateful
Dr. Joseph Mercola

Gratitude is a simple practice that can have profound effects on your health and well-being. Its underpinnings are believed to be principles of cooperation that were pivotal in the development of human communication and social reciprocity, and the ability to experience gratitude to others is a fundamental feature of human cognition.1

The positive effects linked to gratitude include social, psychological and physical benefits,2 which increase the more you make gratitude a regular part of your daily routine. Read More

11.25.21- Slightly Up From Slavery
Doug Casey

To eliminate misunderstanding as to what taxes are, it is helpful to define the word “theft.” One good definition is “the wrongful taking and carrying away of the personal goods of another.” The definition does not go on to say, “unless you’re the government.”

There is no difference, in principle, between the State taking property and a street gang doing so, except that the State’s theft is “legal” and its agents are immune from prosecution. Many people do not accept that analogy, because the government is widely viewed as being of, for, and by the people, even though it’s also acknowledged as acting badly from time to time. Read More

11.24.21- Here’s one tiny example of how absurd Build Back Better is
Simon Black

In early January 1964, barely six weeks after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, US President Lyndon Johnson delivered a speech to the American people in which he declared an “unconditional war.”

But he didn’t declare war on Vietnam. Or Cuba. Or the Soviet Union.

Johnson declared war on poverty. Read More

11.23.21- Hapless Biden Administration Is Weimar Republic on Way to U.S. Fascism
Finian Cunningham

The soaring economic inflation and social woes under the Biden administration point to a disastrous outcome awaiting the United States.

The embrace of political extremism by the Republican Party in the United States has Constitutional historians worried about the drift towards fascism. If that’s the case then the hapless Biden administration may go down in history as the imitation of the Weimar Republic before the rise of American fascism. Read More

11.22.21- The Politics of Obedience
Brian Maher

“A people enslaves itself, cuts its own throat, when, having a choice between being vassals and being free men, it deserts its liberties and takes on the yoke, gives consent to its own misery, or, rather, apparently welcomes it.”

We believe the 16th-century French political theorist Étienne de La Boétie hooked onto a truth here.

We plucked this passage from his masterly work The Politics of Obedience by title. Read More

11.20.21- A Brief History of West African Slavery for the Woke
Jim Quinn

Slave [sleyv] from Middle English, from Old French sclave, from Medieval Latin sclāvus (“slave”), from Late Latin Sclāvus(“Slavic Person”), from Byzantine Greek Σκλάβος (Sklábos), from Proto-Slavic slověninъ

The seminal image many 50+ year old Americans have regarding the West African slave trade’s operating model can be traced back to the 1977 television miniseries Roots.  Some of you may recall sitting in front of your CRT television screen unknowingly watching the roots of a future social justice movement unfold before your eyes as a gang of European men magically appear deep within the Heart of Darkness wielding nets, superior numbers, and incredible brutality and snatch up a young and happy Kunta Kinte from his ancestral homeland. Read More

11.19.21- America’s Elite Run the Country
Into Destruction

Bill Bonner

There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.

– Austrian School economist Ludwig von Mises Read More

11.18.21- 3 Reasons Why Being Reluctant to Retire Could Be the Right Call
Peter Reagan

It’s a strange time to be saving, investing, and planning for retirement.

In just the last few years the repo markets went crazy, we lived through a pandemic-induced market crash, and now we’re experiencing out-of-control inflation.

Strange times like these can create doubt. When it comes to choosing the right time to retire, that doubt can become reluctance.

But being reluctant to retire right now could actually be the right call, and here are three reasons why… Read More

11.17.21- It Has Begun – Get Ready To Pay Much Higher Prices For Meat From Now On
Michael Snyder

The era of cheap meat is over.  For those that are carnivores, that is really bad news.  For decades, Americans have been able to count on the fact that there would always be mountains of very inexpensive meat at the local grocery store, but now those days are gone and they aren’t coming back.  As I was writing this introductory paragraph, it struck me that what is happening to meat prices actually parallels what I wrote about yesterday.  Just as the left doesn’t want us to use traditional forms of energy because they believe that doing so is “bad” for the climate, so they also detest that a lot of us like to eat a lot of meat because the production of meat causes levels of certain greenhouse gases to rise. Read More

11.16.21- Who Will Answer?
James Howard Kunstler

Why on earth would any American with a functioning brain believe what he /she /they is being told by the public health officialdom, the politicians, or the news media? For two years, they have lied to you about everything relating to the Covid-19 virus, including where it came from, how it was developed, who sponsored its development, how the vaccines happened to come onstage thirty seconds after the disease entered the scene, how well the vaccines worked, how safe the vaccines were, and whether there were other cheap and effective treatments for the disease. Read More

11.15.21- America Facing "Potentially Fatal Overdose Of Government": Rep. Davidson
Tom Ozimek

As House Democrats continue trying to muster enough votes to pass President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda, Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio), a member of the House Financial Services Committee, said that the massive social spending bill—along with other Democrat-led policies—represent a “potentially fatal overdose of government” that could stifle free enterprise and push inflation higher. Read More

11.13.21- Deal With Logic and Common Sense - Time is Waning
Joe McCutchen

Today as I write — over 1 million illegal Central Americans are making their way from the gateway, Panama, entering Costa Rica and headed directly for the U.S. via Mexico. Not noted are the illegal Africans, Chinese, Europeans, Marshallese, Mexicans, Mideasterners, Phillipinos, and numerous others. What a disruptive mess, in all likelihood never to be overcome unless Americans get off their insouciant duffs. Read More

11.12.21- Baffling: American General Already Admits Defeat Against Russians and Chinese
Eric Zuesse

General Milley’s address at the Aspen Security Forum is a major piece of news and food for thought.

We live in times of media madness in which it is ever so easy to become cynical or desensitized to even the most heinous or theoretically shocking news. So it may be hard to even get excited about a quote that has nothing to do with gender issues on Twitter, but I implore you to consider the resonance of a recent statement made at the Aspen Security Forum by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Armed Forces of the United States of America… Read More

11.11.21- First Down Payment on a Boondoggle
James Rickards

Thirteen Republican congressmen crossed the aisle late Friday night to help pass a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill. The original proposal was $2.3 trillion, so some Republicans consider it a victory. But it creates programs that will likely remain in place once the bill’s spending authorization expires in five years. Like Ronald Reagan said, “Nothing lasts longer than a temporary government program.” Read More

11.10.21- Medicine Wants to Kill You
James Howard Kunstler

Historians of the future, savoring ‘possum goulash around their campfires, will marvel that modern medicine squandered its authority, its credibility, and its sacred honor in the Covid Panic of the 2020s, when public health officials and doctors in clinical practice colluded to force mass vaccinations while suppressing news of the harms and injuries the vaccines caused — potentially sacrificing millions of citizens like so many experimental fruit flies. Read More

11.09.21- Excess Deaths from the “Vaccine” Point to a Depopulation Agenda
Paul Craig Roberts

“I think it’s highly likely that the next phase will involve death [from Covid “vaccine”] on a scale which will dwarf the claims of ‘covid-19 deaths’ to date.”  - Dr. Mike Yeadon, former Pfizer Vice President and Chief Science Officer

There is no evidence that Big Pharma’s Covid “vaccines” are effective and no evidence that they are safe. Indeed, all the evidence is to the contrary. The “vaccines” were rushed into use before they were tested or approved on the basis of the falsehoods that there was a deadly pandemic afoot for which there were no cures. Read More

11.08.21- How Media And Tech Elites Seized Control Of Elections
David Gordon

Mollie Hemingway, an editor of the online magazine The Federalist, calls our attention in this well-researched book to a problem of vital significance. She is a supporter of Donald Trump, though not an uncritical one, and writes from this point of view, but whether you like the former president or not, you cannot ignore her message. Read More

11.06.21- Towards a Single World Currency
Jim Rickards

Is the move toward central bank digital currencies real? And, if so, is it the first step toward a global reserve currency that will replace the dollar and euro as currencies of choice in reserve positions of major economies?

Well, yes and no.  Read More

We are under bonds — that is — to deliver you “the story that’s not being told.”

That is, we are under bonds to bring you the story untold in the mainstream media. Read More

11.04.21- Something Really Strange Is Happening At Hospitals All Over America
Michael Snyder

In a year that has been filled with so many mysteries already, I have another very odd one to share with you.  Emergency rooms are filled to overflowing all over America, and nobody can seem to explain why this is happening.  Right now, the number of new COVID cases in the United States each day is less than half of what it was just a couple of months ago.  That is really good news, and many believe that this is a sign that the pandemic is fading.  Let us hope that is true.  With less people catching the virus, you would think that would mean that our emergency rooms should be emptying out, but the opposite is actually happening. Read More

11.03.21- When the Whole System
Goes out of Whack

Bill Bonner

Modern society is hypnotized by socialism. It is prevented by socialism from seeing the mortal danger it is in. And one of the greatest dangers of all is that you have lost all sense of danger, you cannot even see where it’s coming from as it moves swiftly towards you.

– Russian novelist Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – Little noticed in the Western media, last month, Russian president Vladimir Putin made an important speech in which he explained what was wrong with us: Read More

11.02.21- Just In Time For The Holidays, The Biggest Mandate Of All Is About To Go Into Effect…
Michael Snyder

What a joyful time of the year this is going to be for the countless families that are about to experience a job loss.  You would think that Joe Biden’s rapidly plunging poll numbers would cause him to rethink his absurd mandates, but that hasn’t happened.  Instead, he is has chosen to stubbornly move forward, and the consequences are going to be absolutely disastrous.  Earlier today, I watched a heartbreaking video of a pandemic hero being marched out of a hospital in California because her religious exemption was denied. Read More

11.01.21- Waypoints on the Road to Currency Destruction — And How to Avoid It
Alasdair Macleod

The few economists who recognise classical human subjectivity see the dangers of a looming currency collapse. It can easily be avoided by halting currency expansion and cutting government spending so that their budgets balance. No democratic government nor any of its agencies have the required mandate or conviction to act, so fiat currencies face ruin. Read More

10.30.21- Americans' Biggest Fear Is "Corrupt Government Officials"
Tyler Durden

Halloween is considered the spooky season, and while skeletons and haunted houses can be scary, Statista's Katharina Buchholz points out that it's different things that keep Americans up at night. A survey by Chapman University in Orange county, California, shows that while some of the fears most commonly cited by Americans changed in the coronavirus pandemic, other stayed the same.

The Survey of American Fears polled 1,035 U.S. adults on their levels of fear across 95 different options. For the fifth year in a row, "corruption of government officials" led the ranking with 79.6 percent of respondents saying the prospect made them "afraid" or "very afraid". Read More

10.29.21- Why Democrats' Scheme to Tax Unrealized Capital Gains Should Terrify You
David Ennocenti

Our current secretary of the Treasury, Janet Yellen, is busy trying to find a way to tax wealth without calling it taxing wealth.  She has eyes on taxing unrealized capital gains.  What this means simply is taxing people for money they have not earned or received.  That's it in a nutshell.  That definition should leave even those who have never had a course in accounting or finance shaken.

10.28.21- God's Role in the Failure of the U.S. Economy (Part 2)
Bill Bonner

When we left you on Friday, God Himself was on the witness stand. He is accused of setting up a world in which everything comes with a fuse attached.

Businesses fail. Empires decline. People die. It’s planned obsolescence on a cosmic scale.

God doesn’t deny it. But He claims… well… that there’s more to the story.

We’ll get to His testimony in a minute. In the meantime…

10.27.21- God's Role in the Failure
of the U.S. Economy

Bill Bonner

Yesterday evening, traffic was snarled, almost gridlocked, all around our neighborhood in Baltimore. Fortunately, we walk to work. Headed home, we noticed dozens of unmarked police cars with red and blue lights flashing.

“What’s going on?” we asked when we came in the door.

“Oh… that’s the president. He’s doing a ‘Town Meeting’ down the hill. He’s promising people a lot of free stuff. I think that’s the gist of it.”  Read More

10.26.21- A Nation of Imposters
Charles Hugh Smith

That's how we've become a nation of imposters: our imposter stock market hits a new high and the imposters cheer because it proves the scam is still working. 

You've read the warnings about the proliferating imposter scams: scammers posing as "officials", representatives of utilities or "a close friend of a family member" all exploit the fast-draining reservoir of trust in America to extract financial information out of the unwary marks. Read More

10.25.21- What is ‘Critical’ – is that America has bought into it!!
Justin O. Smith

The advocates of Cultural Marxism and Critical Race Theory seek to conquer America and impose a Marxist ideology, through their Looney ideas that are unfortunately finding acceptance in too large a segment of our population. Control the dominant ideas in a nation and a group can control that nation.

Cultural Marxism is a wide-ranging designation which refers to the promotion and employment of Critical Theory. Read More

10.23.21- These Supply Chain Snarls Could Cancel Christmas (and Worse)
Birch Gold Group

You might think after almost two years of endless mainstream media coverage blaming the coronavirus for everything, rounds of economic stimulus, and inflation that we might get to enjoy a somewhat peaceful Christmas in 2021.

But it appears that thanks to severe supply chain logistical snafus and other more complex issues, what you might expect to exist on store shelves simply won’t be there. Read More

10.22.21- America Is Now a Kleptocrapocracy
Charles Hugh Smith

I hope everyone here is hungry because the banquet of consequences is being served.

I’ve coined a new portmanteau word to describe America’s descent: kleptocrapocracy, a union of kleptocracy (a nation ruled by kleptocrats) and crapocracy, a nation drowning in a moral sewer of rampant self-interest in which the focus is cloaking all the skims, scams, rackets and bezzles in some virtuous-sounding garb, a nation choking on low-quality junk ceaselessly hawked by robocalls, spam, phishing and Big Tech manipulation. Read More

10.21.21- Insider Trading… Why Politicians Can Do it and You Can’t
Doug Casey

International Man: What exactly is insider trading? Is it inherently unethical?

Doug Casey: The term insider trading is nebulous and as open to arbitrary interpretation as the Internal Revenue Code. A brief definition is to trade on material, non-public information. That sounds simple enough, but in its broadest sense, it means you are a potential criminal for attempting to profit from researching a company beyond its public statements. Read More

10.20.21- The Bifurcation of the Workplace:
The Balloon Has Gone Up

Joseph P. Farrell

There’s a phenomenon that is occurring as the planscamdemic narrative is beginning to break down, and that phenomenon is not only the bifurcation of the culture, but of the workplace as well, a phenomenon hastened by the ridiculous “one size fits all” mandate-and-medicine policy of the regime of President Bidenenko.

10.18.21- How Gates, Fauci, and Schwab manufactured the Covid-19 Crisis to usher in a New World Order that will “Build Back Better”
Patricia Harrity

The Covid-19 crisis is said to be “The Window of Opportunity ” in order to slide in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, or as the leaders of many countries repeatedly regurgitate, it is the chance to “Build Back Better” in the Great Reset .

10.18.21- The Feds’ All-Out War on Your Money
Dan Denning

The German military strategist Carl von Clausewitz famously said that “war is the continuation of politics by other means.”

But when it comes to money – public money issued by the government versus private money made by nature and issued by God (gold) or secured by cryptography and limited in supply (bitcoin) – politics has become the continuation of war by other means.

The United States has all but declared war on sound money… and your financial privacy. I say “all but declared” because as we know, Congress has shirked its Constitutional obligation to declare war for decades. It does so only rhetorically, and only against ideas or concepts, like “terror,” “poverty”, or “drugs.” Read More

10.16.21- We Are On The Verge Of Seeing Widespread Institutional Breakdowns Throughout Our Society On A Massive Scale
Michael Snyder

As a country, we have never been through anything like this before.  In the months ahead, millions upon millions of highly qualified people are going to be forced out of their jobs because of federal, state and local mandates that will soon be implemented.  If you think that this is a good idea, you are crazy.  How will you feel if there is a fire in your neighborhood and your home burns down because there weren’t enough firefighters?  Or how about if you have a heart attack but you have to wait three hours for an ambulance because there aren’t enough first responders? Read More

10.15.21- Three bizarre reasons why inflation is here to stay
Simon Black

When I was about five years old in the early 1980s, my dad brought home our first computer.

I’ll never forget it– it was an clunky IBM with a tiny, orange, monochromatic monitor, and dual floppy disks. It had 640 kilobytes of RAM, and no hard disk. Read More

10.14.21- Retirement Security Month Missing Its Most Important Ingredient
Peter Reagan

When you think about the idea of a secure retirement, one key ingredient would be security. If that’s missing, all you’re left with is a retirement full of anxiety.

And it doesn’t matter which politicians take office, both sides of the aisle often meddle with Social Security and other retirement safety nets, but neither seem to produce tangible results that actually make retirement more secure. (At least, not very often). Read More

10.13.21- Covid Injection Scheme to Commit Genocide and Depopulate Earth Exposes Itself
State of the Nation

It’s nothing less than systematic medical assault and premeditated mass murder!

Never in all of recorded history has there ever been a highly coordinated global conspiracy to inject every person on the planet with an exceedingly dangerous and deadly ‘vaccine’.

In point of fact, the overwhelming worldwide scheme to jab every human being with an untested and highly experimental shot is both unparalleled and shocking to the extreme (and that’s a gross understatement). Read More

10.12.21- The Waiting Is The Hardest Part
James Howard Kunstler

Ol’ Tom Petty sure got that right: the waiting is the hardest part. The lines are drawn: vaxed on one side and unvaxed on the other. Can it be that the unvaxed know rather specifically what the dangers of the vax actually are? That they are making a rational decision, taking a stand, against a toxic hacking of their immune systems and systemic damage to their organs? It’s not that hard to understand, after all. Those spike proteins can kill you, if not right away, then steadily, steadily over the weeks and months. So, now we’re left to wait as the light wanes and we slide into fretful darkness. Read More

10.11.21- Globalists Warned Of A 'Hunger Pandemic' Ahead Of The 'Engineered Famine' And 'Reset Of The US Food System' Now Pushing Us Towards The Brink Of Starvation
Alan Barton

In May of 2019, there were a few stories that erupted about a coming food shortage, a Catastrophic Food Shortage.  What we were working ourselves into was obvious even two plus years ago.  Off The Grid News had one that was typical of the breed when their headline stated “Is A Catastrophic Food Shortage Coming To America And The World?” where they blamed that idea on worldwide destructive weather patterns.Read More

10.09.21- Weekend Rant: The Mark of the Beast
James Howard Kunstler

So, you’re feeling down and blue about the Woke Luciferian madness shading our American life under its baleful bat-wings? A lot of my friends and loved ones are down and blue. At this darkest of dark hours, I have some advice for you. Say ‘okay’ to whatever shade the universe is throwing on you. Rise! Go with it. Run with it and mount it. Ride it until you exhaust the beast that has made itself your enemy. Ride it until it goes to ground and whimpers. Because that is how it ends and you get your life back. Read More

10.08.21- The Vaxx is Dead. Now What?
Raúl Ilargi Meijer

Pfizer Covid Jab ‘90% Effective Against Hospitalisation For At Least 6 Months’, says a recent Guardian headline. Do you remember 1 year ago or so, when these things were first reported on? We were told things like 95% effective against infection, nobody talked about hospitalization, and nobody ever mentioned a time limit.

I’m not sure if they are just moving goalposts or if maybe a whole new and different game has been started, but those changes in wording are stark. Effectively, we’ve been sold one narrative for a year and are now finding out that it was never true. It’s just that the propagandists, like the Guardian, are not yet ready to catch up with the changes. Here’s thinking that will change. Read More

10.07.21- Following the law is now “morally questionable”
Simon Black

What I’m about to tell you is going to come as a major shock. In fact you might want to sit down if you have a heart condition… because this is just going to absolutely blow your mind.

OK. Ready?

10.06.21- This Is Such A Dangerous Time
In Our History

Michael Snyder

If you feel like global events are about to hit a dramatic turning point, you are definitely not alone.  Lately, I have been hearing from so many people that are feeling such a sense of dread about the days that are ahead of us.  It kinds of reminds me of the waning days of 2019.  If you go back and review my articles and my interviews from that period, you will see that I repeatedly warned that I had such a bad feeling about 2020.  At the time, that didn’t make a lot of sense to some people, because life was still relatively normal.  But then the COVID pandemic came along and the world went completely nuts.  Well, now I am sensing another huge wave of trouble, and countless others are feeling the exact same way. Read More

10.05.21- Slowly, Then All at Once
James Howard Kunstler

You can start to wonder what, if anything, will be left standing of the life we once called “modern” when Christmas 2021 rolls around. Shopping? Motoring? Working? Mingling? Eating? Sleeping? Waking…? Suddenly, everything is coming apart. Read More

The Debt Ceiling Drop-Dead Date Means Just That…
Peter Reagan

The “drop-dead date” for raising the debt ceiling is quickly approaching…

That’s a quote from a recent article:

The Treasury now estimates that the “drop dead date”, i.e. the date at which the Treasury will exhaust all of its extraordinary measures if Congress has not acted to raise or suspend the debt limit, will be October 18. Read More

10.02.21- In a Dark Wood
James Howard Kunstler

Behold the photo (above) showing President “Joe Biden” getting his booster shot of the Covid-19 “vaccine,” with the news media clustered to the left of what is apparently a stage-set built in a larger chamber. Do you possibly ask yourself: why bother to build a set for this event in or under the White House somewhere — including even fake daylit windows — when there are any number of actual rooms in the White House perfectly suited to holding this grand event in real daylight? What is going on here? Read More

10.01.21- Congress Kicks the Can
Brian Maher

Congress was poised to prevent a government shutdown Thursday with hours to go before a midnight deadline.

The Senate and House both passed a short-term appropriations bill that would keep the government running through Dec. 3. The U.S. will avoid a lapse in funding once President Joe Biden signs it into law. Read More

09.30.21- Yellen Is Wrong: The US Government Doesn’t Always Pay Its Debts
Ryan McMaken

The regime is trying to whip up maximum hysteria or the chances that the US government could default on its debts if the debt ceiling is not raised.

So far, the financial markets don’t seem to care that much, as ten-year Treasurys over the past week have barely risen above 1.5 percent, and not even matched last March’s recent high. Investors seem pretty confident that the world will still exist even after default. Read More

09.29.21- COVID-19 Detention Camps: Are Government Round-Ups of Resistors in Our Future?

It’s no longer a question of whether the government will lock up Americans for defying its mandates but when.

This is what we know: the government has the means, the muscle and the motivation to detain individuals who resist its orders and do not comply with its mandates in a vast array of prisons, detention centers, and FEMA concentration camps paid for with taxpayer dollars. Read More

09.28.21- An Industry Insider Just Revealed The Truth About What Is Really Behind The Shortages At Our Local Supermarkets
Michael Snyder

The supply chain crisis that our supermarkets are facing is far worse than the mainstream media has been telling us.  The mainstream media keeps trying to put a happy face on the “temporary” shortages, but an industry insider has let me know what is really going on behind the scenes.  This particular insider runs a grocery store in Maine, and he says that things are as bad as he has ever seen.  In fact, he says that he has “never seen anything close to what is happening now”.  The email that he sent me the other day greatly alarmed me, and I asked him if I could share it with all of you.  He gave me permission to do so, as long as I didn’t use his name.

09.27.21- Biden Breaking Bad
Janes Howard Kunstler

Time, the saying goes, is nature’s way of making sure that everything doesn’t happen at once. So now, maybe, we’re at the event-horizon where nature is suspended, because everything seems to be happening at once. The weeks ahead will determine whether we are a coherent society that can function on the basis of a firm consensual reality, or just a convocation of battling narratives designed to conceal anything that quacks like truth, all veering toward failure.

09.25.21- So, Are They TRYING to Kill You or Are They Just Corrupt, Avaricious and Stupid?
L. Reichard White

Governments [and their bureaucracies] lie. They lie all the time. If they told people the truth, they wouldn’t last very long. –Legendary historian Dr. Howard Zinn

We know from this meticulous independent analysis of Israeli Government health data that someone who gets the Pfizer mRNA jab is 14.6 times more likely to die in the next weeks than someone in a statistically matched group who doesn’t get jabbed. That’s 14.6 times more likely to die per day. Read More

09.24.21- They Intend to Destroy America
Jeff M. Lewis

If you’re thinking that Biden’s policies are destroying America, you’re right. And the worst part is that this is exactly what Democrats want.

Richard Andrew Cloward and Francis Fox Piven were both Columbia University professors and long-time members of the Democrat Socialist Party. They were the authors of the Cloward-Piven strategy (paraphrased from Cloward–Piven strategy - Wikipedia):

Overload the American public welfare system and create a crisis that will bankrupt the nation, leaving no choice but to adopt a socialist/communist system of government. Read More

09.23.21- The Next "Crisis" the Global Elite Have Planned
Peter Reagan

Uncle Sam may turn into a “retirement robber baron” if Congressional Democrats get their way.

In a piece titled The Tax Man Cometh, Mike Shedlock covers a partial outline of various tax reforms that the Democrats are putting together in their “Tax Hike” plan.

The most relevant part of that outline for retirement savers was particularly alarming because it aims to close a “backdoor” Roth strategy for high-income earners (at first): Read More

09.22.21- And Then Everything
Happens at Once

James Howard Kunstler

This is a very nervous country, and for a good reason: the collective sense of reality has commenced a momentous shift, the compass is spinning wildly, things are shaking loose in the national brain-pan, the gaslight has lost its sheen, and the once-solid narrative is turning to vapor, starting with the unspooling riddles of Covid-19. Read More

09.21.21- The illusion of getting rich while producing nothing
Charles Hugh Smith

By incentivizing speculation and corruption, reducing the rewards for productive work and sucking wages dry with inflation, America has greased the skids to collapse.

Of all the mass delusions running rampant in the culture, none is more spectacularly delusional than the conviction that we can all get fabulously rich from speculation while producing nothing. The key characteristic of speculation is that it produces nothing: it doesn’t generate any new goods or services, boost productivity or increase the functionality of real-world essentials.

09.20.21- Our New Normal: Inflation, Poverty, Starvation, Economic Collapse, Fascism, Marxism, Communism, and Murder
Gary D. Barnett

“So long as the people do not care to exercise their freedom, those who wish to tyrannize will do so; for tyrants are active and ardent, and will devote themselves in the name of any number of gods, religious and otherwise, to put shackles upon sleeping men.”

09.18.21- Weekend Rant: 7 Signs Your Friend Or Family Member Has Fallen Victim To The Woke Mind Virus

COVID is not the only virus sweeping the West, obsessively woke politics is running rampant with the most virulent variants emerging in newsrooms and colleges.

As an acquaintance of mine slowly succumbed, here’s what I observed. Read More

09.17.21- Rabobank: We Live In A World Without Consequences Where Everyone Is Corrupt
Michael Every

Salo News Day

Regular readers will know I am a cynic. Try writing a Daily for over two decades and not be – and events over the last 24 hours underline that fact. Indeed, you could call it a “Salo News Day” in reference to the controversial Italian film “Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom”, a loose adaptation of the 1785 novel by the Marquis de Sade. As Wikipedia puts it: “The film explores themes of political corruption, consumerism, authoritarianism, nihilism, morality, capitalism, totalitarianism, sadism, sexuality, and fascism.” In other words, a typical day at work in the markets of 2021. Read More

09.16.21- How States And Communities Can Fight Back Against Biden's COVID Tyranny
Brandon Smith

A war is coming. I have heard it argued that this war must be avoided; that it is “exactly what the establishment wants.” I disagree. I think globalists like those at the World Economic Forum certainly want enough chaos to provide cover for the implementation of their global “Reset” agenda, but they don’t want a full blown rebellion. They only want events in which the outcome is controllable or predictable – They do not want a massive organized resistance that might surprise them.  Read More

09.15.21- The U.S. Economy In a Nutshell: When Critical Parts Are On "Indefinite Back Order," the Machine Grinds to a Halt
Charles Hugh Smith

A great many essential components in America are on ‘indefinite back order’, including the lifestyle of endless globally sourced goodies at low, low prices.

Setting aside the “transitory inflation” parlor game for a moment, let’s look at what happens when critical parts are unavailable for whatever reason, for example, they’re on back order or indefinite back order, i.e. the supplier has no visibility on when the parts will be available. Read More

09.14.21- The Stock Market Is No Longer Enough to Fund Your Retirement
Teeka Tiwari

For too long now, American workers have been getting a raw deal…

Not so long ago, retiring with a comfortable nest egg took some time, but it wasn’t impossible.

That’s because from the late 1960s to 2007, the average interest paid on a 10-year government bond was 7%. Read More

09.13.21- The Coming Genocide: Mass Extermination of Humanity, Part 1
Kelleigh Nelson

Justice for crimes against humanity must have no limitations. —Simon Wiesenthal,

The horror of the Holocaust is not that it deviated from human norms; the horror is that it didn’t. What happened may happen again, to others not necessarily Jews, perpetrated by others, not necessarily Germans. We are all possible victims, possible perpetrators, possible bystanders. —Yehuda Bauer, Israeli historian and Holocaust scholar  Read More

09.11.21- 9/11 After 20 Years
Paul Craig Roberts

Time goes by.  It has been 20 years since three World Trade Center skyscrapers designed to withstand airliner collision were destroyed. Building 7 was brought down by controlled demolition as its collapse at free fall acceleration proves conclusively.  The destruction of the twin towers was accompanied by a series of explosions, and these buildings also fell into their own footprints at essentially free fall acceleration.  The US government’s official coverup story has been totally demolished by authors such as David Ray Griffin, by scholarly conferences, university investigations, expert reports, and by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 truth. Read More

09.10.21- 20 Years Of Government-Sponsored Tyranny: The Rise Of The Security-Industrial Complex From 9/11 To COVID-19
John W. Whitehead

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in - and the West in general - into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”

- Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN

What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties. Read More

09.09.21- The Real Reason Why the Mainstream Media is Dialing Up the Fear
Doug Casey

International Man: The mainstream media can dial up the fear in society much like you can with the thermostat in your house. And right now, they seem to be cranking up the fear to hysterical levels.

Governments are able to enact radical policies when people are fearful. What is your take on the situation and the media’s role in it? Read More

09.08.21- The battle for control over the future of money
Claudio Grass

It’s no secret that governments and central planners of all stripes have long detested the rise of private money and independent digital currencies. They have tried to stifle the burgeoning crypto industry from the moment it attracted mainstream attention. For years, they have continued to add regulatory hurdles and threaten crypto holders and investors, as well as companies in this space, with unreasonable tax burdens and unrealistic disclosure requirements that come with hefty fines. Read More

09.07.21- A Pyramid of Treason is Ushering In Marxist-Communist Control of the American People-Millions Will Not Survive the Transition
Dave Hodges

Obama attempted to enslave America through the TPP. Trump stopped him. Today, the draconian and deadly policies oftheTPP are back in several executive orders and pending legislation. It is not an exaggeration to say that America has a destiny with institutionalized genocide against certain members of society.

09.06.21- Why Do Journalists
Hate 9-11 Truthers?

Philip Kraske

It seems that there are to be no dissenting voices on the twentieth anniversary of 9-11. Even film director Spike Lee was forced by media outcry to edit out of his documentary mini-series the half-hour dedicated to skeptics of the official version of the event. Thus the citizenry has been saved from “a bog of heinously dangerous ideas.” Read More

09.04.21- 7 Examples That Show How Completely And Utterly Insane
Our Society Has Become

Michael Snyder

Reading the news has become like going to a freak show.  You never know what you are going to see each day, but it is almost certainly going to be nutty.  Some of the things that I am going to share with you in this article are weird, others are infuriating, but they all point to the same conclusion.  From the very top to the very bottom, America is going crazy.  And I mean that in the worst way possible.  Read More

09.02.21- What Experts Don’t Understand About Cryptocurrency
Jeff Brown

“I would describe them as a limited supply of nothing.”

Those are the words of John Paulson, who is known for making $20 billion by taking a massive short position against subprime mortgage bonds. It was an awesome trade in an asset class that many knew was going to collapse… It was just a matter of when.

Paulson simply timed it right. He understood what was happening in the mortgage markets, and he saw the distortions caused by the government backstops of subprime mortgages. Read More

09.01.21- Fools, Traitors and America
Brian Maher

A nation can survive its fools, it is said — but not its traitors.

Yet we have long suspected the opposite…

That is, a nation can survive its traitors. But it cannot survive its fools.

That is because a nation’s fools infinitely outnumber a nation’s traitors.

Please answer this question:

How many traitors occupy the District of Columbia?  Read More

08.31.21- The American Descent Into Fascism
Paul Craig Roberts

This morning I posted “The Aggressive Stupidity of America’s business, educational, government, and military leaders is astounding.”

As i was astounding this morning, what do I call it this mid-afternoon when the stupidity of American leadership is already 10 times worse than it was this morning?

You are not going to believe this, but Chase Bank has canceled General Mike Flynn’s personal credit card, citing “possible reputational risk to our company.”  Read More

08.30.21- Food Suppy Chain is Destroyed: Prepare Now, Stock up if you can.
Mac Slavo

The United States food supply chain is irrevocably destroyed. There are shortages in most grocery stores across the country, however, it hasn’t gotten to the point that the slumbering masses have noticed…yet.

Once people begin to panic at entering an empty grocery store, mass civil unrest will follow. Imagine how insane people get over a TV that’s 10% off on the day after Thanksgiving. Now imagine there is one can of beans left in your grocery store, and 100 people are hungry and want it.  Food can be used as a weapon, and infamous rulers have said so and put that into motion to control populations.Read More

08.28.21- Inexplicable Times
Robert M. Hamburger

Relief from the pandemic was seemingly just a tease. Case numbers are rising again. So too are deaths. Masks are returning. Corporate media hyperbole makes it harder and harder to know what to believe.

CNN has become the leader of the worst. An online headline from earlier this month: “We’re fighting two diseases - the virus and stupidity.” There is news and there is opinion, judgmental headlines like these are neither. I used to consider CNN to be a reliable source to get an overview of the headlines being dispensed to the masses. Now I don’t go there. Read More

08.27.21- Bluff of the Year: Fed Threatens to “Get Aggressive” with Inflation
John Rubino

You can summarize the current mood in Washington DC as “Please don’t let this be a return to the 1970s.”

For younger readers, that was a decade in which excessive government spending and money printing combined with inept foreign policy to create the impression that the US was fading into global irrelevance. Everyone everywhere dumped their dollars, inflation spiked, interest rates soared and geopolitical chaos of various forms ensued. Read More

08.26.21- Nitric Oxide Nasal Spray Reduces Covid-19 Viral Load By 95% Within 24 Hours: Study
Tyler Durden

A well known antimicrobial, Nitric Oxide, has been found to rapidly reduce SARS-CoV-2 viral load, knocking it down by 95% within 24 hours, and 99% within 72 hours, according to a recent study by researchers funded by England's NHS foundation trust and SaNOtize Research & Development Corporation - a Canadian biotech company currently conducting Phase II trials of a nitric oxide nasal spray.

What are your thoughts on this? Is this just China’s latest step in trying to gain world supremacy? Read More

08.24.21- Do the people who rushed to get the COVID shot have buyer's remorse?
Peter Skurkiss

There are many troubling aspects to the COVID vaccines and the growing mandates for them. Here I'd like to focus on one that is rarely discussed.

To begin with, when these unapproved vaccines were first made available to the public on an emergency basis, many people rushed headlong to get one. They were in a near panic. I saw this myself. This was due, to a large extent, to the panic whipped up in the mainstream media. Read More

08.23.21- Fear Porn Inc.
Terry Paulding

I took a step back from writing about the Wu Flu for a few weeks because there were so many people already writing what I was thinking.  But now the country and the world around us are spiraling downward into panic, and officials are feeding us fear porn recklessly.  It's time to sift the information, to try to find some clarity.  My all-time favorite word is "perspective," and that is what seems to be missing right now.  That, and honesty from the "top" levels of our government and our media.

08.21.21- The Smart Money Has Already Sold
Charles Hugh Smith

Generations of punters have learned the hard way that their unwary greed is the tool the ‘Smart Money’ uses to separate them from their cash and capital.

The game is as old as the stock market: the Smart Money recognizes the top is in, and in order to sell all their shares, they need to recruit bagholders to buy their shares and hold them all the way down. Once the catastrophic losses have been taken by the bagholders, then the Smart Money slowly builds up positions amidst the wreckage. Read More

08.20.21- Are Vaccines Making COVID Worse?
Alastair Crooke

As we noted yesterday, Dr. Robert Malone is a pioneer in the mRNA technology upon which the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are based. As we also noted: Dr. Malone is not an “anti-vaxxer.” He has — in fact — consecrated his long career to vaccine development.

Yet, he harbors grave reservations about these particular vaccines. What is his central bogey, his primary hobgoblin? He believes the vaccines may be aiding, abetting and comforting the enemy virus. Vaccinating in the middle of a pandemic is “bad science,” Dr. Malone argues. It is creating an “arms race” with the virus. Read More

08.19.21- A Long, Hot, Angry Summer
Alastair Crooke

The exclusionary ideology is being turned-in upon itself. Turned-in, within western societies, and not just outwards, towards the West’s foreign adversaries. Now, it is key segments of domestic society that are being morally shamed and exiled from full participation in their societies.

Is something ‘big’ coming? It feels as if it might possibly be so. There are serious problems brewing in western societies and the élites are becoming distinctly antsy. Read More

08.18.21- The Propaganda War (Part II)
CJ Hopkons

The column you are about to read is propaganda. Yes, that’s right … propaganda. It isn’t political satire or commentary, or objective news or information, or unbiased, verified scientific fact. It is propaganda, pure and simple.

That isn’t a confession, a disclaimer, or a warning. I am not ashamed of writing propaganda. Most everything you see and read on the Internet, and in newspapers, and on television, and in textbooks, and novels, and on advertising billboards, and everywhere else, is propaganda. There is nothing wrong with propaganda. The question is who is doing it, and what they are doing it for. Read More

08.17.21- Why The Global Economy Is Unraveling
Charles Hugh Smith

Global supply chain logjams and global credit/financial crises aren't bugs, they're intrinsic featuresof Neoliberalism's fully financialized global economy.

To understand why the global economy is unraveling, we have to look past the headlines to the primary dynamic of globali
