04.16.21- America: No Longer A Nation
Justin O. Smith

This country isn’t united on a damned thing any longer, and every like-minded Free Born American had better be staking off their claim now and preparing to defend it with their friends and family at their sides … all the while watching and waiting to see which side their neighbors fall on. The coming battle for the heart and soul of this nation will be fought one day, block by block and street by street and acre by acre…Read More

04.15.21- Rule by Fiat: When the Government Does Whatever It Wants
John W. Whitehead

Rule by brute force.

That’s about as good a description as you’ll find for the sorry state of our nation.

SWAT teams crashing through doors. Militarized police shooting unarmed citizens. Traffic cops tasering old men and pregnant women for not complying fast enough with an order. Resource officers shackling children for acting like children. Homeowners finding their homes under siege by police out to confiscate lawfully-owned guns. Drivers having their cash seized under the pretext that they might have done something wrong. Read More

04.14.21- Discard First Principles, Live in a Turd-World CrapHole
Karl Denninger

One of the first principles of economics is that everything has a cost. Everything.

So there’s a virus. It kills some people. We quickly learn that it almost-never harms children, but often harms older, sicker people. This should not surprise; it is easier to kill an old and infirm person than a healthy, vibrant young individual with virtually any disease. In other words things like the 1918 pandemic flu are the exception, not the rule. Read More

04.13.21- What’s In YOUR Jab?
Ben Garrison

If people really knew the ingredients in vaccines they’d reject the poisoned needles.

Of course, the ingredients listed in my cartoon are not concise – there are far more noxious substances I could have added – and I realize each vaccine has different variants. The mRNA jab can’t really be called a vaccine at all – it’s experimental gene therapy. Read More

04.12.21- Will America Survive Joe Biden?
James Howard Kunstler

If you want to understand the complete failure of moral authority in America, seek no further than the gothic doings of the Biden family, especially now that the President’s degenerate son, Hunter, has been rewarded with a $2-million advance-against royalties (i.e., money up-front) from Simon & Schuster, and a gala publicity tour of the national news media designed to conceal his criminal culpability in evidence contained on the “laptop from hell” that he stupidly abandoned in a Delaware repair shop while lurching through his daily doings on one of countless drug jags he’s enjoyed between rehabs since his dad stepped back into national politics.

If you want to understand the complete failure of moral authority in America, seek no further than the gothic doings of the Biden family, especially now that the President’s degenerate son, Hunter, has been rewarded with a $2-million advance-against royalties (i.e., money up-front) from Simon & Schuster, and a gala publicity tour of the national news media designed to conceal his criminal culpability in evidence contained on the “laptop from hell” that he stupidly abandoned in a Delaware repair shop while lurching through his daily doings on one of countless drug jags he’s enjoyed between rehabs since his dad stepped back into national politics.

04.10.21- The Odds Are Never In Your Favor
Jeffrey Bennett

For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society saying to our citizens, “As long as you obey the law – we will leave you alone.”

How many years ago was the following written and posted? Does it really matter? One can change a few of the embedded names, but the story has remained the same – or has it all worsened? I believe that it has. Read More

04.09.21- Infrastructure Bills Do Not Lead To Recovery, Only Increased Federal Control
Brandon Smith

The concept of infrastructure stimulus has been hyped for decades as a kind of cure-all for economic decline. The propaganda runs parallel to the narrative of the “savior” of the Great Depression, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. In fact, one cannot examine the presidency of FDR without being bombarded with one sided worship of infrastructure spending and the “New Deal.” Read More

04.08.21- War on Cash: The Next Phase
Jim Rickards

With so much news about an economic reopening, a border crisis, massive government spending and exploding deficits, it’s easy to overlook the ongoing war on cash.

That’s a mistake because it has serious implications not only for your money, but for your privacy and personal freedom, as you’ll see today. Read More

04.07.21- A Trillion Here, a Trillion There
Clifford F. Thies

The late Everett Dirksen, a long-serving Minority Leader of the Republicans in the U.S. Senate, is famously quoted as saying a billion here, a billion there, and soon we’re talking real money. That was back in 1969. At the time, a billion dollars was about one-tenth of 1 percent of GDP.

What about today? 

During 2020, the federal government provided a total of $3.2 trillion of Covid relief, starting with a mere $8.3 billion, then adding $104 billion, then adding $2.2 trillion, and finishing off the year with another $900 billion. Read More

04.05.21- UBI and the Road to Serfdom
David Gordon

Many people think that a universal basic income (UBI) would be a good substitute for the welfare state. Under this proposal, each person resident in a country would receive a guaranteed income, sufficient to live at a modest level. People would get the money unconditionally. Unlike welfare payments, the UBI would not be lessened if people earned money in addition to the amount it provided, and, because it is not means tested—absolutely everyone gets it, even billionaires—it requires no complex bureaucracy to administer. Read More

04.05.21- China Isn’t the Problem, Neoliberalism Is
Rob Urie

The ascendance of Wall Street, and of a managerial bureaucracy (PMC) more generally, largely explains the political realignments that have been playing out in the U.S. Beginning in the 1970s, the American political class made decisions at the behest of business interests and oligarchs to restructure the U.S. economy in ways intended to shift the balance of political and economic power towards capital. Finance was, and still is, the method of affecting this transfer of power. However, the current epoch of finance capitalism has run its course. Its logic has been lost. The threats to the neoliberal order are now internal to it. Read More

04.03.21- Weekend Rant: Dreams
Neal Ross

Everybody dreams; some just don’t remember their dreams upon awakening. I fall into that category; most of the time I can’t remember what I dreamt the night before. However, I just awoke from a dream that was so vivid that it is fresh in my mind; so I decided to write it all out before the memory of it fades. That’s why I’m here right now, at 3:47 a.m.; all so you too can share in my dreams. Read More

04.02.21- Devil’s Deputy Talks With
Klaus Schwab

Jon Rappoport

Hi, Klaus. Satan asked me to drop by and have a chat with you.

How’s he doing?

He really wants to get The Great Reset off the ground. World fascism. Universal Guaranteed Income tied to social credit score.

We’re working on it.

He knows you and your people at the World Economic Forum are pushing as hard as you can. Read More

04.01.21- Cancel Culture Is Just the Beginning
Robert E. Wright

Imagine the jackboots kick in your door at midnight and haul you off to a reeducation camp because of that tweet. (Which one? Does it matter?) You think about resisting but then you realize that your assailants are not government employees but rather the hired henchmen of MegaX corporation, so you relent. The right of MegaX to forcibly reeducate you was probably in your user agreement, so it’s all good. Right? Read More

03.31.21- Vaccine passports spell 'the end of human liberty'
Naomi Wolf

‘How does China keep a billion people under the thumb of a totalitarian regime?’

Liberal author and feminist icon Naomi Wolf is warning that the proposed “vaccine passports” would mean the end of liberty in the free world. Read More

03.30.21- Billionaire hedge fund manager urges diversification out of the dollar
Simon Black

Ray Dalio is the founder of one of the largest investment firms in the world and has amassed a personal fortune nearing $20 billion from his business and investment acumen.

In short, he understands money and finance in a way that most people never will. And it’s for this reason that his latest insights are so noteworthy. Read More

03.29.21- Why Is Everyone in Texas Not Dying?
Jeffrey A. Tucker

I'm sitting at a bar in Texas, surrounded by maskless people, looking at folks on the streets walking around like life is normal, talking with nice and friendly faces, feeling like things in the world are more-or-less normal. Cases and deaths attributed to Covid are, like everywhere else, falling dramatically. 

If you pay attention only to the media fear campaigns, you would find this confusing. More than two weeks ago, the governor of Texas completely reversed his devastating lockdown policies and repealed all his emergency powers, along with the egregious attacks on rights and liberties. Read More

03.27.21- The Hole Is Already Too Deep
Brian Maher

A man shovels himself deep into a hole. He then wishes to climb out. What must he do first?

He must stop the digging.

Yet the United States government has shoveled itself into a $28 trillion hole. How does it plan to rise out of it?

By digging deeper… and deeper… and deeper. Read More

03.26.21- If Deficits Don't Matter, Why Bother with Taxes?
Peter St. Onge

On March 18, Joe Wiesenthal of Bloomberg Markets had MMT economist Stephanie Kelton on the show. If you’re not familiar with modern monetary theory, they think governments should print more money because deficits aren’t a big deal. At one point in the show, Wiesenthal asked, “If we don’t need to worry about deficits, why do we have taxes?” Kelton’s response was illuminating. Read More

03.25.21- There Is No Such Thing as a Public Health Expert
Jordan Schachtel

Since the beginning of COVID Mania, we’ve been told to “listen to the public health experts.” Governments and the corporate media has identified this category to us as individuals (Dr. Fauci, Rachel Levine, Tedros Adhanom, Bill Gates) and groups (CDC, WHO, Gates Foundation, Imperial College, etc) that are supposedly the best resources out there for dealing with pandemics and disease spread. Want to know about how to deal with COVID-19? Follow orders from the omniscient public health experts, we’re told. Read More

03.24.21- Willful Blindness, Societal Rift,
& The Death Of The Dollar 

Michael Lebowitz

“It was assumed, even only a decade ago, that the Fed could not just print money with abandon. It was assumed that the government could not rack up huge debt without spurring inflation and crippling debt payment costs. Both of these concerns have been thrown out the window by large numbers of thinkers. We’ve seen years of high debt and loose monetary policy, but inflation has not come.

So the restraints have been cast aside.”

– David Brooks- New York Times-  Joe Biden Is A Transformational President Read More

03.23.21- In the Shadows of Shadowland 
James Howard Kunstler

Is there some kind of game on in the USA? Have our public affairs ever looked so false and disordered? Is it ever more wondrous that Joe Biden somehow managed to win the Super Tuesday primary, let alone the national election?

The country has gotten exactly what it saw all through the autumn of 2020: the empty shell of a broken politician. Back in October, Ol’ Joe hiding in his basement was played as a bad joke in a nervous zeitgeist. Nothing to see, according to the captive news media. Wasn’t that exactly it, though? Nothing to see and nobody home, the essence of our now-president, Joe Biden. How on earth did this happen? Read More

03.22.21- How To Fight Price Inflation At Home
Samantha Biggers

Helpful ways to save money while boosting quality of life

Inflation is a big topic right now.

The $trillions in fresh worldwide stimulus are causing the price of nearly everything we depend on to rise sharply in price, as this chart from February shows: Read More

03.20.21- How a Small Rise in Bond Yields May Create a Financial Crisis
Daniel Lacalle

How can a small rise in bond yields scare policymakers so much?

Ned Davis Research estimates that a 2% yield in the US 10-year bond could lead the Nasdaq to fall 20%, and with it the entire stock market globally. A 2% yield can cause such disruption? How did we get to such a situation? Read More

03.19.21- Prices Are Soaring:
What Happens Next

Tyler Durden

In Wednesday's press conference, Jay Powell confirmed that the Fed is setting off on a historic experiment: welcoming a conflagration of red-hot inflation for an indefinite period of time in an overheating economy, with the underlying assumption that it's all "transitory" and that inflation will return to normal in a few years, and certainly before 2023 when the Fed's rates will still be at zero. Read More

03.18.21- The Big Con: Stimulating the Economy With Printed Dollars
Bill Bonner

Last Thursday must go down in history as one of America’s most important WTF days. That’s when the American Rescue Plan became law. It is so remarkable… so flat-out preposterous… so clearly a big step towards America’s rendezvous with disaster…

And yet… the president and all his minions are fanning out… explaining… justifying… excusing… taking credit… and claiming paternity…

…of a monster. Read More

03.17.21- Conspiracies ‘R Us
Donald Jeffries

All of us believe in some conspiracies. Many subscribe to the philosophy of the ultimate pessimist, that guy named Murphy, and his law, which observed that the other line moves faster. You know it’s going to rain after you wash your car, or painted something outside. The car’s going to need an emergency $500 repair, right after you get a $500 bonus. A gust of wind will come along and mess up your new hairdo. The list is endless. Read More

03.16.21- It Is Time To Remove The Debt Barrier To Economic Growth
Michael Hudson and Paul Craig Roberts

Out of habit, American economists worry about federal debt. But federal debt can be redeemed by the Federal Reserve printing the money with which to retire the bonds.  The debt problem rests with individuals, companies, and state and local governments.  They have no printing press. Read More

03.15.21- Exposed! The Hidden Inflation Eating Your Money
Adam Taggart

Chapwood Index calculates the true cost of living is 5x what the government reports

Do you feel like no matter how hard you work, it’s harder and harder to get ahead?

There’s a good explanation for that. And it’s maddening.

The government intentionally & dramatically underreports the true cost of living, and that fake low number is what most employers use when they set the wages they pay. Read More

03.13.21- Inflation Watch:
Beware The Ides Of March

Alasdair Macleod

President Biden has now had his $1.9 trillion stimulus package passed into law, and it will not be the last in the current fiscal year. Covid is not over and is sure to resurge with new variants next winter.

But even assuming that is not the case, we still have to contend with the aftermath of the pre-covid conditions, whereby banks had run out of balance sheet capacity combined with trade tariffs predominantly aimed at China. These conditions were a doppelganger for late-1929, and between 8 February and 20 March the S&P500 index faithfully tracked a similar course to that of October 1929. Read More

03.12.21- Is It Time to Go Galt?
Gen Z Conservative

For those that haven’t yet read Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand’s last and best novel, the term “go Galt” or, as popularized on bumper stickers, “going Galt,” comes from it. In the novel (and I’ll avoid giving too much away), a group of the protagonists found their own hidden community in the hills of Colorado. That community has no real government and is instead governed by the idea that each individual is there to pursue the profit motive, be productive, and live out their life as they see fit. Read More

03.11.21- The Dangers of the Growing “Snitch Culture” in the US
Doug Casey

International Man: Since the start of the Covid hysteria, Americans have snitched on people for not wearing a mask, called the police when their neighbors had guests over at their house, and reported businesses that were not compliant.

Has the US become a nation of snitches?

Doug Casey: Without doubt, the US is transforming from a nation of whipped dogs into something much worse, a nation of squealing rats. It’s because fear is being used by the powers that be to “unite” the country, the way the inmates of a prison are united.Read More

03.10.21- The Stimulus Package Won't Cut Poverty, It Will Accelerate It
Anthony Pompliano

The United States Senate narrowly voted in favor of the American Rescue Package over the weekend. The $1.9 trillion stimulus package is being presented as a savior for the citizens still suffering from the COVID-induced economic crisis, but the actual impact of the package is likely to be a net negative.

Before we get started, here is a quick overview of where the $1.9 trillion is reportedly going: Read More

03.09.21- The Inversion
Robert Gore

Getting along by going along with the patently absurd

A seamless web, they all believe because they all believe.

The Gordian Knot, Robert Gore, 2000

If it seems like the world has turned upside down it’s because it has. Right is wrong and wrong is right. Truth is lies and lies are truth. Knowledge is ignorance and ignorance is knowledge. Success is failure and failure is success. Reality is illusion and illusion is reality.Read More

03.08.21- Ethereum Fixes Bitcoin
Vince Lanci

If you have a decent grasp of the Bitcoin story but are looking for some good explanation of it in context, this may be of interest. The following was written in 2018 about Bitcoin. It is instructive in possible valuation approaches, market structure concepts, and perhaps more relevant in what is now shaping up to be a competition of differing priorities between Bitcoin and Ethereum. Read More

03.06.21- The Emancipation of Texas
Jeffrey A. Tucker

My family moved to Texas from Massachusetts in 1830, six years before Texas became an independent nation. I should say one man made the migration; he met his wife on the journey, in Tennessee. They first stopped to see his uncle in New Orleans, who gave him some horses, a deed to some property in Texas, and a new covered wagon. He landed in East Texas, got bored of farming, and moved further West, landing in Marfa and Alpine. Remnants of that decision are all over the region today.  Read More

03.04.21- The Planscamdemic's
Latest Twisted Twist

Whopper-doozie alert! This one is so over the top that I simply had to blog about it. It was shared by W.G., whom I thank for bringing to my attention. To be honest, this is such a whopper-doozie that I don’t even know where to start with respect to today’s high octane speculation, and I rather suspect – once readers dive into the article – that it will stimulate your own speculations. I’m presenting three different sources or versions of this story, because it is so unbelievably breathtaking in its implications:  Read More

03.03.21- China Just Attacked the USD
Peter Reagan

China just took the next big step towards dethroning the dollar as #1 global currency. And the weird thing is – it could send gold soaring. Here's why...

For decades, countries have paid for oil with the petrodollar, which supports the U.S. dollar's value. The system has been critical to the USD's stability.

But now, China is upsetting everything. It began in June of 2017, when Beijing started to buy oil from Russia in yuan – thus establishing the "petroyuan".  Read More

03.02.21- The Idea Of Secession
Isn't Going Away

José Niño

Secession is a four-letter word for the millions of Americans who have gone through the conventional educational pipeline that teaches them that the American state is indivisible and sacrosanct.

However, intellectually honest historians whose minds haven’t been warped by educational institutions know better than to dismiss secessionism as some nefarious activity that only treasonous Southerners of the Confederacy are engaging in. Read More

03.01.29- Bonds and Stimulus are Driving Big Sector Trends and Shifting Capital
Chris Vermeulen

Falling Bonds and rising yields are creating a condition in the global markets where capital is shifting away from Technology, Communication Services and Discretionary stocks have suddenly fallen out of favor, and Financials, Energy, Real Estate, and Metals/Miners are gaining strength.  The rise in yields presents an opportunity for Banks and Lenders to profit from increased yield rates. In addition, historically low interest rates have pushed the Real Estate sector, including commodities towards new highs. Read More

02.27.21- Questions to ask Amid the Insanity
Donald Jeffries

We are now entering the one year mark of this deadly COVID-19 virus, which refused to burn out in the summer heat, and appears to be blocking COVID-20 from doing its thing. It is becoming harder to keep one’s sanity amidst the double and triple-mask wearing, the inane “science” followed by the sheeple, and the realization that our economy, and social interaction itself, is being purposefully ruined. 

So exactly why are so many parents, who have been inconvenienced and hit financially by having to stay home with their children, supporting the incomprehensible refusal of teachers’ unions to order them back to work? Read More

02.26.21- The Great Reset Is Here
Jim Rickards

The Bretton Woods conference of 1944 set the global financial system that still prevails today. The period 1969-1971 can be regarded as the First Reset, which involved the creation of Special Drawing Rights (SDR, ticker:XDR), the devaluation of the dollar and the end of the gold standard.

For years, commentators (myself included) have discussed the next global monetary realignment, which is sometimes called The Big Reset or The Great Reset. Read More

02.13.21- Missouri County Sheriffs Will Arrest Feds Who Violate Second Amendment
Under Biden

Gabriel Keane

Unconstitutional gun control measures pushed by all three branches of federal government are ruled null and void in Newton County

The Commission of Newton County, Missouri passed legislation in February that will empower local law enforcement officials to arrest federal agents who attempt to violate the Second Amendment rights of citizens within the county. Read More

02.12.21- Public Servants or Parasites?
John Greenville

I have a question.  When did politicians and federal employees start calling themselves “public servants”?  Even more importantly, why are we letting them?  It’s almost as if they’re trying to claim the mantle of nobility for making a sacrifice in the public interest.  But I don’t understand what that sacrifice is.  They’re paid better and have better benefits than most private-sector employees.  They’re rarely held accountable for their performance.  Why do we treat them as if they’re serving a higher calling than any other profession in the country? Read More

02.11.21- The Dystopian Bubble: George Orwell Meets Charles Mackay
Kevin Duffy

“Threats to freedom of speech, writing, and action, though often trivial in isolation, are cumulative in their effect and, unless checked, lead to a general disrespect for the rights of the citizen.”

~ George Orwell

In early December I asked Jim Grant how to reconcile exuberant financial markets with economic reality that reads like dystopian fiction. He responded, Read More

02.10.21- With Apologies to Drunken Sailors Everywhere. . .
Simon Black

The year was 1977.

Disco was in. Star Wars was the biggest movie of the year. The world’s first personal computer was announced– the Commodore PET, which came with 8 kilobytesof memory.

And the Gross Domestic Product of the United States reached $1.9 trillion– more than double what it had been just ten years prior. Read More

02.09.21- Cancelling the Land of the Free
Donald Jeffries

Things are moving at a warp speed in post-Trump America. The Giant Orange Man served at least one important purpose, and that was to impede the progress of the rabid virtue signalers who have taken over every part of our society. Now he’s gone, banished to Mar-a-Lago land, and the bullies who wanted to take our lunch money no longer have to fear our imperfect but large older brother. Read More

02.08.21- The Last Time the D.C. Establishment Labeled its Political Opposition as “Insurrectionists” (And How It Taught Them About “National Unity”)
Thomas DiLorenzo

The Washington establishment, led by a senile 78-year-old man who can barely speak in complete sentences and seems permanently fighting mad, is hell- bent on labeling virtually all Americans who voted for President Trump –Republicans, Independents, and Democrats — as “insurrectionists.”  They have invoked the Insurrection Act of 1807 to justify placing thousands of heavily-armed National Guard (and other) troops in Washington, D.C., who appear to be stationed there indefinitely. Read More

02.06.21- Living Off Grid As The Collapse Of Society Approaches: “Why Aren’t More People Doing This?”
Michael Snyder

You don’t have to be a cog in the system.  For most of us, the only option that was presented while we were growing up was to get on the hamster wheel and run as fast as we could.  You know what I mean – go to school, get a job, pay a mortgage, prepare for retirement, etc.  But it doesn’t have to be that way.  If you truly want to unplug from the system and live your life off the grid, you can.  Of course it isn’t easy, but nothing in life really worth doing ever is. Read More

02.05.21- The Aftermath of the GameStop Short Squeeze
Bill Bonner

Let us not, in the pride of our superior knowledge, turn with contempt from the follies of our predecessors. The study of the errors into which great minds have fallen in the pursuit of truth can never be uninstructive.

– 19th-century Scottish author Charles MacKay

WEST RIVER, MARYLAND – As you know, Dear Reader, we live in an Age of Miracles. Read More

02.04.21- How to Protect Your Local Economy From the Great Reset
Brandon Smith

Over the years, I have written extensively about the concept of economic “decentralization” and localization, but I think these ideas are difficult for some people to visualize without proper motivation. By that I mean, it’s not enough that the current centralized model is destructive and corrupt; it has to start breaking down or show its true totalitarian colors before anyone will do anything to protect themselves. Read More

02.03.21- Do You Trust the Government, or Do You Have a Plan B?
Joe Jarvis

Things I trust more than the government: a Facebook ad promising me a free weekend in Lithuania.

The year was 2016 and I was a starving artist, writing and living in a travel trailer on my sister’s property in rural Florida.  Read More

02.02.21- These Are The Shadowy New York Financial Institutions That Forced Robinhood To Restrict Trading In Certain Stocks
Michael Snyder

Have you ever heard of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation?  What about Cede and Company?  If those names are foreign to you, then you don’t really understand how the core of our financial system really works.  A lot of people are blaming Robinhood CEO Vlad Tenev and the heads of other major trading platforms for the stock trading restrictions that we witnessed last week, but it was actually the DTCC that suddenly jacked up deposit requirements ten-fold.  Robinhood and other trading platforms were put in a vise-like grip, and they had no choice but to act.  Read More

02.01.21- The Stock Market, Fatally Wounded by the Truth, Will Stumble and Crash
Charles Hugh Smith

It didn’t have to be this way, but this is the reality we must now face: truth is fatal to fraud, and our entire financial-political system is a fraud.

The stock market has just been punctured by the thin blades of truth. It is fatally wounded but nobody dares notice. The wounds are barely visible, but the internal damage is mortal. The stock market is already stumbling and will soon crash. Read More

01.30.21- This Potentially Catastrophic Inflation Surge Slipped Under the Radar (Until Now)
Birch Gold Group

You’ve read about housing market bubblesstock bubbles, and even credit bubbles. But the next bubble you’re about to discover could be even more dangerous, and may have even more far-reaching consequences.

It’s called a food price bubble, and it’s been inflating under our noses since March 2020. You can also see the dangerous trajectory it’s on compared to three previous years in the FAO chart. Read More

01.29.21- Dijjywan—Dijjydo or Dijjydon’t?
Fred Reed

Questions for My Betters

China is now vigorously testing a digital yuan and threatens to have it ready for prime time for the 2022 Winter Olympics. This seems, to me anyway, important. It will be a real, workaday yuan, not a speculative cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. It will use a digital wallet via a cellphone app, and will not require an internet connection. Beyond this, I know about it only what I read, which may be wrong. To avoid endless qualification, I will write the following as if it were fact, but really I mean it more as an extended question. Any correction, amplification, or thought will be welcome. Read More

01.28.21- Revenge: An Internet Mob Is Turning The Stock Market Into “A Video Game”, And The Establishment Is Freaking Out
Michael Snyder

Retail investors have banded together to turn over the tables on Wall Street, and it has created a wild frenzy that is making headlines all over the globe.  Unprecedented short squeezes have pushed the share prices of GameStop, AMC, Macy’s and BlackBerry to insane heights, and prominent voices in the financial world are complaining that trading in those stocks has become completely divorced from the fundamentals.  In fact, these young retail investors are actually being accused of turning the market into “a video game”. Read More

01.27.21- Protecting My “Extremist” Content From Censorship
Joe Jarvis

I consider the author Neal Stephenson a visionary. For example in his 1999 novel Cryptonomicon, he essentially describes a Bitcoin type cryptocurrency, almost a decade before it existed.

In a past video, I described his idea in The Diamond Age of “distributed governments” which provide insurance-like services to customers, regardless of the geographic area they live in. Customers were free to choose their own government, or go without one. Read More

01.26.21- For Conservatives, Our Republican “Allies” Are Far More Dangerous Than Our Leftist Enemies
Mike Ford

We have spent a lot of time going back and forth about what our enemies in the Democrat Party are attempting to do. Make no bones about it gang, they are in no way any sort of loyal opposition. They are the enemy of all things American. They continue not only to support the downright evil policy of murdering and dismembering unborn babies in the womb, disproportionately those of minorities (genocide anyone?) but they also support the admission of mentally/emotionally disturbed males into female locker rooms to sexually prey on under age children. Read More

01.25.21- If "Facebook Is Private", Why Are They Feeding Users' Private Messages
Directly To The FBI?

Matt Agorist

Despite decrying censorship when it was happening to them last year, when Donald Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook earlier this month, the left praisedthe move by big tech. “Facebook is a private company and can do what they want,” the pro-censorship hypocritical crowd chanted ad nauseum through the digital ether after bad orange man was silenced. But as we have said time and again, Facebook being private is simply not true. Read More

01.23.21- Biden’s Presidency Will Be A Catalyst For Secession – And Perhaps Civil War
Brandon Smith

Over the past few months I have written a handful of articles which discussed what would probably happen if Joe Biden actually entered the White House and launched his administration. My initial belief was that Trump would refuse to concede and that this would be a trigger for national chaos blamed on conservatives, but I have also noted that Biden’s entry is almost just as disruptive, as it sends a signal to the political left that it is “open season” on anyone that disagrees with their ideology. Read More

01.22.21- Growing Vegetables Is Back in Style: Here’s How to Start Planning Your Garden
Daisy Luther

Whether you celebrate St. Bridget’s Day, Candlemas, Imbolc, or Groundhog Day, February 2 is coming up. For those of us active in gardening and raising animals in the Northern hemisphere, this means it’s time to think about spring. And that means garden planning!

The pandemic has caused one very positive resurgence: growing food is back in style and no longer the purview of hippies or those crazy preppersRead More

01.21.21- Low Rates and Limited Liability
Mean Hot Markets

Doug French

The taxpayer is backstopping more credit risk than ever…

What clear-eyed mortgage underwriter would sign on to a thirty-year loan at less than 3 percent? After all, in Las Vegas, for instance, the unemployment rate in November was 11.5 percent, second highest in the country. The city’s main engine, tourism, has been stymied by covid. But, as if there were nothing wrong, nothing to see, or no risks to consider, new home sales are on the verge of being the highest in 2020 since the historic housing-boom year of 2007. Read More

01.20.21- How soon will the Left eat their own?
Jon Rappoport

Hey. I’m always here to offer advice to the Left, to make their road smoother, to point them in the direction of fellow travelers they should cancel for deficiencies of “wokeness.”

Let’s start with the issue of GMOs, poisonous Roundup, and Monsanto (now swallowed up by Bayer). Read More

01.19.21- Will Biden and Obama be executed for TREASON?
State of the Nation

While Italy did the dirty deed, Obama and Biden were the top-level operational criminal co-conspirators who cooked up and funded the election theft. Of course, they were directed by their Jesuit handlers in the Vatican, who were in turn commanded by their their well-hidden masters in the Italian Black Nobility. Which is precisely why this election theft essentially took place in Italy. But it was the Khazarian Mafia, as always, that issued the order.

The verdict is in. Read More

01.18.21- Here It Comes
Brian Maher

These were spending estimates for Mr. Biden’s proposed “vaccination and economic rescue legislative package.”

Our spies have spent days sleuthing for the correct figure. But they too heard conflicting whispers. They expressed the most confidence in CNN’s crystal gazing.

They were correct… evidently. Read More

01.16.21- Signs and Wonders
James Howard Kunstler

In case you don’t know what condition our condition is in, the name for it is a crisis of legitimacy. Four years of seditious harassment by a “Resistance” within-and-without the US Government culminates in the janky election of a mentally incapable grifter… run by whom? Does anyone seek to know who, exactly, is pulling Joe Biden’s strings? My guess would be…duh… Barack Obama and his posse. When will he be outed? Maybe today… or next week at the latest. Heads will explode to see liberalism’s bowling trophy fall off the national mantelpiece. If you think Nancy Pelosi is running around in a hebephrenic fugue state now, just wait.  Read More

01.15.21- The Destructive Force
and Failure Of QE

Alasdair Mcleod

This article concludes that quantitative easing as a means of stimulating economies and financing government deficits will fail. The underlying assumption is that the transmission of additional money to non-banks in order to inflate financial assets, and to banks to cover government finances, will become too great in 2021 for it to succeed without undermining fiat currencies and financial markets. Admittedly, this opinion stands in stark contrast to the common Keynesian view, that once covid is over economies will start to grow again. Read More

01.14.21- One of the Greatest Economic Blunders in History
Jim Rickards

The U.S. economy lost 140,000 jobs in December. Only about 55% of the jobs lost in March and April have returned. That’s a significant number.

Americans and others around the world who make their living as bus drivers, bartenders, waiters, hair stylists and boutique store clerks, among thousands of other jobs, make up 50% of all jobs and 45% of U.S. gross domestic product. Read More

01.13.21- Storming Into America 3.0
Donald Jeffries

I thought America 2.0- the authoritarian mess which evolved out of the 9/11 false flag- was bad. It made those of us old enough to have lived most of our lives in America 1.0 long for the days of a better looking, more competent corruption. 2020, with a deadly virus that had the beneficial effects of eliminating both the threat of terrorism and the common flu, and an unconstitutional lockdown accompanying it, was only the beginning. Read More

01.12.21- How To Lose Weight
Adam Taggart

Health is the best investment you can make in 2021

If you’re like most of the people around the world who had their lives rocked by the COVID pandemic, staying healthy in 2021 is likely one of your resolutions for the coming year.

And if so, ‘losing weight’ is probably on your list. Read More

01.11.21- The Capitol:
So Much Susupicious Evidence

William L. Gensert

It’s our own fault.  We allowed Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to control the narrative while Google controlled the answers to any questions.

They now believe they can define what happened on January 6, 2021 with impunity and we will accept their lies as truth. Read More

01.09.21- Finding Light in the Face
of Extreme Darkness

Gary D. Barnett

This world we live in has changed so much over the centuries, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. Change brings many things, including progress that can be lifesaving for so many, but progress in the wrong hands of power can also bring misery and death. The twentieth century brought wonder in many ways, and so many advances, but it was a time of mass murder and world wars. It was a time of socialism and communism, and of a huge number of evil murderous rulers including those like Mao Zedong, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and all the American presidents, their enforcers, and their willing allies that murdered or caused the deaths of tens of millions of innocent people in the false name of  “exceptionalism” and “democracy.” Read More

01.08.21- Was the assault on the Capitol building a false flag?
Jon Rappoport

I’m writing this hours before posting it, so events may unfold that add more information.

The first thing you need to ask yourself: was the break-in at the Capitol, while Congress was in session holding a debate about election certification, an attempt to stop a transfer of power to Biden, or an attempt to stop the debate itself—during which legislators would have laid out evidence of fraud? Read More

01.07.21- Retirement Worries are Escalating (and the “Solutions” Don’t Look that Good)
Birch Gold Group

If you want a stress-free and secure retirement, the odds are stacked against you. Especially when Congress tries to offer their “reheated” solutions to the problem.

And worries are continuing to mount among Generation X, according to one MarketWatch piece: Read More

01.06.21- America’s Epiphany Moment
Alastair Crooke

The blanketing canopy pressing down across the globe of TINA (there is no alternative) is rupturing. The fabric is tearing at the seams. Now, with the U.S. courts having abdicated their role in adjudicating suits in connection with the 3rd November election, it seems that President Trump will make a last effort to change the course of events between 6–20 January (inauguration day). At point of writing, some 140 Republican Representatives say they will challenge the outcome of certain elections on 6 January. Whether this challenge will succeed (in all its dimensions) is moot. Read More

01.05.21- The Frogs Will Boil Themselves
Jeff Thomas

There’s a well-known old fable that describes a frog being boiled alive. It states that if a frog is dropped in boiling water, it will hop out. But if it’s placed in lukewarm water, it will be comfortable. Then, if the heat is turned up slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be boiled to death.

In political terms, this translates into a slow increase, say, the slow rise of taxation or the gradual removal of freedoms. Read More

01.04.21- This is a Recipe for Hot Inflation in 2021
Graham Summers

Get ready for a tsunami of liquidity to hit the financial system…

Get ready for a tsunami of liquidity to hit the financial system.

President Trump has already signed a COVID-19 stimulus bill that will give $600 to most Americans. The House of Representatives has since passed a bill to increase the amount to $2,000.

That’s a massive wave of money flowing into the economy.Read More

01.02.21- Forecast 2021 — Chinese Fire Drills with a side of French Fries (Jacobin-style)
and Russian Dressing

James Howard Kunstler

As I write, the presidential election is still not resolved, with dramatic events potentially unfolding in the first days of the New Year. I’m not convinced that Mr. Trump is in as weak a position as the news media has made him out to be in these post-election months of political fog and noise. The January 6 meet-up of the Senate and House to confirm the electoral college votes may yet propel matters into a constitutional Lost World of political monsterdom. The tension is building. Read More

01.01.21- Give Me Liberty Or Give Me
a Face Diaper

Jim Quinn

One month ago I wrote an article – Silent Obedient Consent – about our day in Cape May Lighthouse State Park and my disappointment in seeing so many perfectly healthy young people obediently wearing their face muzzles, as dictated by government bureaucrats,  on a bright crisp autumn day in a 244 acre state wild preserve. I found it sad that so many could be controlled so easily by so few. Read More
