05.23.22- Russia Rewrites the Art of Hybrid War
Pepe Escobar

Hybrid War is being fought predominantly in the economic/financial battleground – and the pain dial for the collective West will only go up.

The ironclad fictional “narrative” imposed all across NATOstan is that Ukraine is “winning”.

So why would weapons peddler retrofitted as Pentagon head Lloyd “Raytheon” Austin literally beg since late February to have his phone calls answered by Russian Defense Minister Shoigu, only to have his wish finally granted? Read More

05.21.22- Here’s why Bitcoin, gold, and bonds might dominate the rest of 2022
Dino Kurbegovic

So far 2022 hasn’t been kind to stocks and crypto with losses all across the boardBitcoinlost 37%, of its value despite hitting an all-time high six months ago. Similarly, the S&P 500 dropped about 17%, since the start of the year. 

However, some analysts would declare that not everything will continue falling for the rest of the year. Senior commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence, Mike McGlone sharedhis latest insights on Twitter:  Read More

05.20.22- Cracks in US Economy Start to Show as Recession Warnings Mount
Rich Miller

The late Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Samuelson once quipped that Wall Street had predicted nine out of the last five recessions. This time, the stock market may be right.

The US economy is starting to show signs of strain under the weight of decades-high inflation and climbing interest rates -- raising the risk of a downturn. Read More

05.19.22- Feeding the Narrative
James Howard Kunstler

There’s apparently no question that one Peyton Gendron, 18, went out hunting for black people in Buffalo, NY, carefully documenting his crime every step of the way, from penning a book-length manifesto, to running reconn on the Topps Supermarket scene-of-the-crime, to mounting a GoPro video cam on his forehead to record his wicked act, which resulted in 10 persons shot dead and three more wounded.

05.18.22- About that coming “food crisis”
Simon Black

On Wednesday July 3rd in the year 1315, King Louis X of France– also know as “Louis the Headstrong”– issued a groundbreaking edict.

“Whereas, according to natural right, everyone should be born free. . .” he began. “Many persons amongst our common people have fallen into the bonds of slavery, which much displeaseth us.” Read More

05.17.22- Sell And Go To Cash Or Hang On By Your Fingernails?
Chris Vermeulen

Is holding onto this position worth the stress and worry about whether the market is going to rally?

As professional traders, we spend a lot of resources determining whether we are in a bull-up market or a bear-down market. The follow-up to this is our additional efforts in finding the right places to buy or sell in either of these scenarios. Read More

05.14.22- What You Must Understand to Survive the Changing New World Order
J. Kim

Since history has always provided us with a blueprint of exactly what is going to happen in the future, it is confounding to me why the majority of us ignore what is so easy to predict. 

Lessons from the Reddit AMC Short Squeeze

There is no doubt the MIB (Military Industrial Banking) complex has been using technology to much more easily transfer wealth from everyone to themselves. Read More

05.13.22- Americans More Upset at Musk Spending His OWN Money on Twitter than $55 Billion of THEIR Money Stoking WW3
Matt Agorist

Since April, when Elon Musk first made the offer to buy Twitter, the establishment left has been in an uproar. Hit pieces have been rolling from the NY Times and Washington Post, essentially calling Musk a Nazi, white supremacist who wants to give his fellow far right Nazis a platform to spread hate. While none of that is actually true, it is a matter of public record that Musk is spending $44 billion to purchase the company. Read More

05.12.22- The Fed Is Taking The Punch Bowl Away – But The Inflation Crisis Will Continue To Grow
Brandon Smith

Four years ago the overall sentiment among most alternative and mainstream economists was that the Federal Reserve would NEVER hike interest rates, taper stimulus or reduce their balance sheet into economic weakness. In fact, this was one of the few viewpoints that the mainstream media and independent economists actually agreed on. A few of us had different ideas, though.Read More

05.11.22- Leftists Hate Free Speech Because They Fear Dissent, Not “Disinformation”
Brandon Smith

I think one of the most bizarre social developments of the past 10 years in the US has been the slow but steady shift of the political left as supposed defenders of free speech to enemies of free speech. The level of mental gymnastics on display by leftists to justify their attacks on freedom and the 1st Amendment is bewildering. So much so that I begin to question if liberals and leftists ever actually had any respect for 1st Amendment rights to begin with? Or, maybe the only freedom they cared about all along was the freedom to watch pornography… Read More

05.10.22- 18 Signs That Food Shortages Will Get A Lot Worse As We Head Into The Second Half Of 2022
Michael Snyder

If you think that things are bad now, just wait until we get into the second half of this year.  Global food supplies have already gotten very tight, but it is the food that won’t be produced during this current growing season in the northern hemisphere that will be the real problem.  Worldwide fertilizer prices have doubled or tripled, the war in Ukraine has greatly reduced exports from one of the key breadbaskets of the world, a nightmarish bird flu pandemic is wiping out millions of chickens and turkeys, and bizarre weather patterns are absolutely hammering agricultural production all over the planet. Read More

05.09.22- Monetary Reset Where the Rich Don't Own Everything
Ellen Brown

We Have A Serious Debt Problem, But Solutions Such As The World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset” Are Not The Future We Want.

It’s time to think outside the box for some new solutions.

In ancient Mesopotamia, it was called a Jubilee. When debts at interest grew too high to be repaid, the slate was wiped clean. Debts were forgiven, the debtors’ prisons were opened, and the serfs returned to work their plots of land. Read More

Charles Hugh Smith

Those glancing at the appearances will be assured all is well and it will all sort itself out. Those who look behind the screen will move away as fast as they can.

When finances tighten, there are two choices: cut expenses or increase revenues.  Monopolies, cartels and governments can increase revenues by increasing taxes or the price of goods and services because users / customers / taxpayers have no alternative. The rest of us have to cut expenses. Read More

05.06.22- From Animal Farm to 1984
Mark McDonald, M.D.

The consequences of the mass delusional psychosis I write about in my book United States of Fear imperil our freedoms, our safety, and our existence as a nation. George Orwell wrote about the consequences of a totalitarian state in his two famous novels Animal Farm and 1984. They served as allegories for the evil visited on society by a communist takeover of government. In little over a year under the Biden regime, the US has largely achieved the dystopia Orwell envisioned. Read More

05.05.22- The Bill of Temporary Privileges
Andrew P. Napolitano

Last week, the Director of National Intelligence, the data-gathering and data-concealing arm of the American intelligence community masquerading as the head of it, revealed that in 2021, the FBI engaged in 3.4 million warrantless electronic searches of Americans. This is a direct and profound violation of the right to privacy in “persons, houses, papers, and effects” guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. Read More

05.04.22- What Comes Next After Roe Is Overturned? Chaos On The Streets Of Washington Like We Have Never Seen Before…
Michael Snyder

I am sitting here absolutely stunned as I write this.  According to a draft decision obtained by Politico, the U.S. Supreme Court is going to overturn Roe v. Wade.  My initial reaction was that this is the best news that we have had in decades.  We all knew that the Dobbs case had the potential to be really big, but I was skeptical that Roe would actually be overturned.  I just didn’t think that the votes were there.  Read More

05.03.22- Study finds Covid-19 Vaccination
increases risk of suffering a Stroke by 11,361%

Adam Hamilton

Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. It is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the United States.

But it looks as if the disease may be on the rise thanks to the experimental Covid-19 injections because a study of VAERS data has revealed that per number of doses administered, ‘stroke’ is 115x / 11,361% more likely to be suffered as an adverse reaction to the Covid-19 vaccines than the Flu vaccines.

Kathleen Marquardt

For years, Tom DeWeese, Henry Lamb, Michael Coffman, I and many others have been beating the drums trying to wake up America and the World about Agenda 21/Sustainable Development. In the past several years, thanks to an unemployed bartender trying to shove the Green New Deal down our throats, people have begun to question. Read More

04.29.22- Not the 1970s or the 1920s: We're in Uncharted Territory
Charles Hugh Smith

All of these similarities and differences are setting up a sea-change revaluation of capital, resources and labor that will be on the same scale as the extraordinary transitions of the 1920s and 1970s.  

The awakening of inflation after decades of slumber has triggered a flurry of comparisons to the 1970s accompanied by a chorus of projections for 1970s-type stagflation, defined as inflation plus economic stagnation-- limited or negative growth and high unemployment. Read More

04.28.22- The Threat to Liberty is Coming from Inside the House
Barry Brownstein

You might be, as I am, alarmed about the future of liberty. How deep are the roots of liberty when so many submit to authoritarian measures in response to COVID, and approve the use of coercion against those less eager to comply? Unable to visualize alternatives, public acceptance of top-down coercive solutions to COVID demonstrates a willingness to sacrifice liberty for the promise of safetyRead More

04.27.22- Wade in Water Children – all the way BACK to Mexico!
Justin O. Smith

It truly pains me that after 40 years of writing and speaking on the need to secure our borders properly and remove all illegal aliens America is still struggling with this issue and we are once more being sold down the river and betrayed in a manner that would be beyond comprehension, if we didn’t already recognize the evil behind our nation’s adversaries and the enemy-from-within, represented today by the Democratic Party. I never thought I’d live to see a day, when so many Americans were anything but American and all too willing to destroy the nation that had given them so much, regardless of Her many flaws and the freedoms and liberties awaiting to be restored and regained. Read More

04.26.22- The Benefits of Economic Collapse
Doug Casey

I first began to predict a major economic collapse back in 1999. Although I understood that it was at least fifteen years off and possibly more, I believed that it would be wise to begin to prepare for it then, as the actual date of collapse could not be predicted. (Better to be a few years early than even one day too late.)

Not surprisingly, back then, this prediction appeared to most people to not only be unlikely, but laughable. Read More

04.25.22- How Do You Manage America’s Decline?
Karen Schoen

Messaging has always been a favorite tool of the Globalists. The problem is they concentrate so much on the message, there is usually nothing behind the message. Most Globalist programs are thrown out for the public to use without testing, or control groups, sampling and feasibility studies. The modeling is done by computer using the Precautionary Principal aka Worst Case Scenario (WCS). The Worst Case Scenario /WCS creates the most fear and requires the most drastic measures to solve the problem. Obviously it is the preferred choice by the Globalists who like to create chaos.  Read More

04.23.22- The Real Reset is Coming... But Not the One the Elites Expect
Ron Wright

The ‘Real Reset’ is Coming,” As Victor Davis Hanson writes on the upcoming midterm elections.

In truth, we are about to see a radical reset – of the current reset.  It will be a different sort of transformation than the elites are expecting and one that they should greatly fear. . . Read More

04.22.22- Inflation May Take the Food out of Your Mouth before it Goes Away
David Haggith

So much has happened with the rise of inflation and so much is continuing to crowd in behind the scenes on the production end that I believe we will see inflation burning hotter for longer in the months ahead. Those saying we are nearing peak inflation are as wrong as they were when they said it months ago and as wrong as they were when they said “inflation is transitory” a year or more ago. Read More

04.21.22- The Telephone
Paul Craig Roberts

I remember when the telephone was a useful and appreciated device.  The digital revolution, one of humanity’s most unfortunate developments, has turned the telephone into a nuisance and a threat.  

The telephone is such a nuisance that most people no longer answer when it rings or even bother to set up the feature to record phone messages.  The telephone is such a nuisance that many people do not even use it for calls.  Instead, they text, and they only answer texts. Read More

04.19.22- Tyrants Always Want to Track and Take Your Guns
Michael Boldin

If we adopted the attitude of the founders, all guns would be undetectable to the government.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard plenty about the new ATF regulations on so-called ghost guns.

This is very similar to what the British did to the colonists in 1744 and 1775 – they banned the importation of firearms and ammo, they did warrantless searches to find them, they seized gunpowder – and marched Lexington and Concord to do the same. Read More

04.16.22- A Free Person Is One Who Owns His Own Labor
Paul Craig Roberts

Calculate your slave status before boasting of “American freedom”

For decades on or about April 15, I published a tax day column pointing out that working Americans in our time are as enslaved as 19th century blacks on cotton plantations. I never in 30 or more years saw any response from any economist, historian, or anyone. I think my statement was regarded as too fanciful for comment. People think of slaves as beings of highly restricted mobility who are bought and sold like commodities. In that sense, we are not slaves. But in a wider historical sense we are. Read More

One of my favorite quotes of all time comes from writer and director Oliver Stone, who once said that “Hell is the impossibility of reason.” In other words, if truth and logic are eradicated within a society then any hope for redemption or peace is lost. The world becomes a Read More

04.14.22- Why the Vaccinated Are MUCH More Likely To Support a No-Fly Zone in Ukraine…
Joe Jarvis

You might think the number of COVID vaccines a person has taken has nothing to do with their support for NATO military intervention in Ukraine…

UNLESS something else is going on.

Could it be the same people susceptible to media fear propaganda about COVID are just as taken in by the propaganda that says the US should be involved militarily in Ukraine?  Read More

04.13.22- The Riptide
James Howard Kunstler

These dangerous currents amount to a huge riptide in global events that will carry many people and whole societies out to sea….

Have you stopped to ask yourself: what exactly are the USA’s interests in Ukraine? The answer: just about none whatsoever if you discount all the effort and capital expended there the past decade to make it a problem for our designated hobgoblin, Russia. During these eight years, since the Maidan “revolution,” Ukraine was an ATM for “Joe Biden’s” family, an inconvenient embarrassment for the US State Department, which has not been able to cover it up.  Read More

04.12.22- Out Of Control Inflation Is Absolutely Eviscerating America’s Rapidly Shrinking Middle Class
Michael Snyder

I tried to warn you that the U.S. was going down the exact same path that Venezuela had already traveled.  Once upon a time, Venezuela actually had a thriving middle class, but then a horrific inflation spiral came along and destroyed it.  Thanks to hyperinflation, just about everyone in Venezuela became millionaires, but just about everyone was also pushed into poverty because the currency was essentially worthless. Read More

Baseball - A Universe Parallel to Life

I wrote this about 15 years ago.

04.09.22- The “Doomsday Preppers”
Were Right

Michael Snyder

For years, there was a great debate about what the future of our society would look like.  The irrational optimists kept assuring us that we would never suffer any serious consequences for decades of incredibly foolish decisions, and they kept promising that a new golden age of peace and prosperity for humanity was just around the corner.  Meanwhile, others were warning that humanity would soon be plunging into an abyss filled with endless nightmares.  Instead of a utopian new chapter in our history, we were warned that war, hunger, pestilence and relentless economic problems were on the horizon.

04.07.22- The Ukraine Conflict Is Just a Sideshow, and We Are the Real Targets
Brandon Smith

Way back in 2014 I wrote an article titled False East/West Paradigm Hides the Rise of Global Currency. I was inspired to cover the issue due to three specific trends which at the time were concerning.

The first trend was the increased mention within globalist circles of something called the “Great Reset.” Christine Lagarde who, as the head of the IMF at the time, was suddenly throwing the phrase around in press interviews and in Q&A events at the World Economic Forum. This appeared to me to be a rebranding of the “New World Order” agenda which establishment elites had been known to mutter about in moments of rare honesty. Read More

Egon Von Greyerz

“There is gonna be a new world order out there and we’ve gotta lead it! And we gotta unite the rest of the world in doing it!”

Is it me or thee who whispers while running from the truth?

Those who view their surroundings and find them unsatisfactory, the fear and whispering begins.

In the well of the U.S. Senate recently claimed a bloodcurdling statement offered by a U.S. Senator. Surely there must be a response focusing on the Senator’s wild-eyed statement in his last address and condemning the Republican Senator. Read More

04.04.22- In Investing, as in War, One Must Adapt or Die
J. Kim

As a long-time martial arts practitioner that trained with many active duty military personnel, including Army Rangers, I learned of a saying that one must learn to be disciplined, yet flexible enough to adapt to changing situations in order to overcome unforeseen obstacles in your path. For some reason, many people today equate discipline with rigidity and inflexibility, especially in the investment world. Read More

04.02.22- Public Schools Are Cesspools of Debauchery. Get Your Kids Out Now,
Before It's Too Late.

Paula Bolyard

If there’s one thing we’ve learned during the pandemic it’s that many parents had no idea what was going on in their kids’ schools. Oh, parents knew there was crazy stuff going on in other schools, but by and large, there was a sense of NIMBY — it’s not happening in my backyard. Sadly, we’ve become increasingly aware of the abuses and indoctrination children across the country are suffering at the hands of unhinged teachers — teachers pushing their left-wing political agendas, encouraging children to be sexual deviants, and treating parents like they are not qualified to raise their own children without the state intervening in their families.

03.30.22- Climate Engineering Real Cause of Coming Food Shortage
Dane Wigington

Climate engineering researcher Dane Wigington contends the coming food shortage that President Biden recently mentioned is not because of the Ukraine/Russia conflict.  Wigington explains, “The bottom line is we have crops collapsing all over the globe.  Although the causes are many . . . climate engineering must be considered a core causal factor at this point.  The assault against food producing regions has been relentless. . . . We can only consider it an assault against food production at this time.” Read More

03.29.22- Fourth Turning 2022 –
Bad Moon Rising

 Jim Quinn

“Try to unlearn the obsessive fear of death (and the anxious quest for death avoidance) that pervades linear thinking in nearly every modern society. The ancients knew that, without periodic decay and death, nature cannot complete its full round of biological and social change. Without plant death, weeds would strangle the forest. Without human death, memories would never die, and unbroken habits and customs would strangle civilization. Social institutions require no less. Just as floods replenish soil and fires rejuvenate forests, a Fourth Turning clears out society’s exhausted elements and creates an opportunity.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning Read More

02.28.22- Putin for Sainthood?
Brian Maher

We recently nominated Mr. Vladimir Putin for a Nobel Prize. Today we elevate him once again, to a roll of honor higher yet.

That is, we nominate him for membership in the canon catalog of saints…

He suffers the blackened reputation of a brutish and even homicidal fellow — a reputation hard earned, it is true. Read More

03.26.22- Communism In America Happened Before You Were Told It Did
Al Benson Jr.

Many who have written histories of this country have never mentioned communism and/or socialism until some time in the 1930s. It’s interesting that this subject seldom comes up for them until that time period when research has shown that we had a problem with socialism and communism starting back as early as the 1850s. You have to wonder what happened to those historians that, somehow, missed over 80 years of communist and socialist activity in their historical scribblings. Read More

03.25.22- Russia Just Told You The Ruble is Implicitly Backed by Gold and Bitcoin
Tyler Durden

Intro: We are not given to hyperbole. This is a path we’ve studied for years as students of history. This is not a fomo panic buy (or sell) statement. It is a geopolitical observation. There comes a point where no matter how good a captain is, after which, he cannot steer his ship to avoid an iceberg. The dollar is on a collision course with China and Russia on trade. If the iceberg does not melt, the choices are: crash, or scuttle with the affluent surviving in lifeboats. Read More

Ihor Kolomoisky is the Oligarch who funded Zelensky and put him in a position to be president. However, this is the very same Kolomoisky who had a “controlling interest” in Burisma Holdings, that employed Hunter Biden as a board member for a widely reported salary of $50,000 per month. Russian media, quoted in State Department emails, referred to Burisma as “part of Kolomoisky’s financial empire.” Read More

“… there’s going to be a new world order out there, and we’ve got to lead it.” - Joe Biden

03.22.22- Is Eating People a Solution to World Hunger? The Science Behind

Cassidy Ward

IT'S PEOPLE! (But it's also a bad idea.)

Released in 1973, Soylent Green imagines a dystopian nightmare version of 2022 in which overpopulation and climate disaster have made the Earth nearly unlivable. Resource and housing shortages have exacerbated class stratification, with the wealthy living in lush, reinforced houses while the rest of the population is scrounging for scraps just to survive.

03.19.22- Saudi Arabia May Have Just Triggered Armageddon for the U.S. Dollar
Peter Reagan

For years now, the U.S. dollar’s status as global reserve currency has been in a precarious position.

I wrote about this way back in 2017, when countries with no prior interest in an alliance with each other agreed on a common interest to dethrone the U.S. dollar from its place as the world’s reserve currency. At that time the list included China, Russia, and Saudi Arabia, among others.

In 2017, they threatened to pay for oil with the yuan instead of the dollar. China even offered to sweeten the pot with a “yuan-denominated oil futures contract backed by gold.” Read More

Darryl Robert Schoon

Beware the Ides of March    Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

On March 15th, the Fed decided on a series of rate hikes that will be as consequential to capital markets as the Ides of March was to Julius Caesar in 44BC. The demise of financial markets, however, will not be sudden and unexpected like the assassination of Caesar. The collapse of capitalism will be as protracted and volatile as it is inevitable. Read More

03.17.22- What Happens Next in the Conflict With Russia
Doug Casey

International Man: Prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we discussed the rising tensions between the US and Russia over Ukraine.

What is your take on what has transpired since then?

Doug Casey: I think it makes sense first to recount the genesis of this war. It started when an American-backed coup overthrew the Ukrainian government in 2014. A US-backed thug replaced a Russian-backed thug— nothing unusual, except that Ukraine shares a long border with Russia. The Russians viewed that much as the Americans would if the Russians had put a puppet government in Ottawa. Read More

03.16.22- Land of the Ignorant, Home of the Cowards?
Lex Greene

The past two years have proven above all else, just how easily conned the average American is today, and how fast you can frighten them into total compliance with even the most insane tyrannical government dictates. No matter how little sense anything makes, Americans are most likely to go-along with excessive government orders believing that it will make it possible for them to get-along with their sworn enemies. Read More

03.14.22- Orwell Was Right
Matt Taibbi

This weekend I re-read 1984, a book I tend to reach for when I get Defcon-1 depressed about the state of the world. Deep in the novel, Winston ponders the intricacies of doublethink:

To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which canceled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them… To forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again… that was the ultimate subtlety.  Read More

03.12.22- Putin’s Options
James Rickards

There’s no doubt that the financial sanctions put on Russia by the U.S., the U.K., EU members and others are the most severe ever imposed. The U.S. Treasury has announced 15 separate sanctions programs in recent days and no doubt more are on the way.

The targets of these sanctions include Russian banks, Russian stocks and bonds and various payment channels. Most significantly, the U.S. froze the accounts of the Central Bank of Russia. That’s the first time a major central bank’s assets have been frozen since the Cold War, and possibly ever.  Read More

03.11.22- Western Response to Ukraine Conflict Exposes Deep-Seated Anti-Russia Prejudice
Robert Bridge

The West wants to lecture Russia on the merits of peace, yet that is exactly what Moscow was attempting to achieve for many years.

For many decades, every American public institution – from the spook-infested studios of Hollywood to the dinosaur legacy media – presented a tired and repugnant image of the Russian people to its audiences. Now, with Moscow forced to contend with a neo-Nazi element smack on its border, the by-product of that sinister propaganda campaign is targeting Russians in the form of pure racism.  Read More

03.10.22- How Our School Boards Turned Against Us
Lee Duigon

03.09.22- The American Empire self-destructs.
But nobody thought that
it would happen this fast

Michael Hudson

Empires often follow the course of a Greek tragedy, bringing about precisely the fate that they sought to avoid. That certainly is the case with the American Empire as it dismantles itself in not-so-slow motion.

The basic assumption of economic and diplomatic forecasting is that every country will act in its own self-interest. Such reasoning is of no help in today’s world. Observers across the political spectrum are using phrases like “shooting themselves in their own foot” to describe U.S. diplomatic confrontation with Russia and allies alike. But nobody thought that The American Empire would self-destruct this fast. Read More

03.08.22- Addict, Degenerate and Bagman of a Corrupt Family Enterprise Exposed
John Dale Dunn, M.D.

It is hard to find words to describe the debauched and sleazy satyr that is Hunter Biden and how he used his family name and his father’s status as an important American politician to become an extraordinary international grifter involved in multi-million dollar -- sometimes billion dollar -- deals with international entities that included corrupt criminal enterprises such as Burisma Holdings of Ukraine and the government- and military-controlled companies of Russia and China, international enemies of the United States. Read More

03.07.22- This Island America
Charles R. Dickens

We have met the enemy, and it is us…

We are isolated from the world by a government that controls our information. We don’t know what’s happening at home or globally, we don’t see how this country really works, and we don’t understand how it all interrelates. It’s all filtered and groomed to present the appropriate messages. We don’t know, and we don’t seem to care if it’s real or if it’s Memorex as long as it sounds good. Read More

03.05.22- The Silent Brainwash
Brian Wilson

While you may "feel" that something is wrong, you are subconsciously being programmed nonetheless. Think about TV Commercials and everyday television shows and movies with these facts in mind.

This is not racist, it is statistical data; verified demographic facts:

US population 334 million consisting of 57.8% white, 18.7% Latino, 12.1% Black and 11.4% Asian or other. Read More

03.04.22- The Economic Balloon That May Finally End Progressive Leftism
Lewis Dovland

The Laws of Economics are as immutable as the Law of Gravity, but few leftists grasp this fact. When it comes to the Democrats’ energy policies, I believe this immutability will finally be the Democrats’ downfall. People are reaching a pain point that the progressives can no longer deflect onto others. Read More

03.03.22- The State of Our Nation: Things Are Getting Worse, Not Better
John W. Whitehead

“Never has our future been more unpredictable, never have we depended so much on political forces that cannot be trusted to follow the rules of common sense and self-interest—forces that look like sheer insanity, if judged by the standards of other centuries.”—Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

Let me tell you about the state of our nation: things are getting worse, not better. Read More

03.02.22- Everything is yesterday’s news, except War
Jon Rappoport

Old hat? The vaccine or freedom; lockdowns or freedom; state of emergency or freedom (yawn)

“Remember so long ago, when we cared about who could refuse the vaccine? A dim memory. The world is at WAR.”

Dear reader, I don’t want to bore you. Don’t nod off. I’ll get to the juicy parts in a minute. I promise. But for a few moments, try to stay with me, when I say: Read More

03.01.22- Here's Why Our Monetary System Is A Giant Ponzi Scheme
Chris Macintosh

Ponzi schemes keep going until the perpetrator is stopped from the outside. They never stop by of their own volition. Bernie Madoff kept going until it all blew up.

In the year 2000 the Nasdaq composite exceeded a P/E of 200 before collapsing 78% by October 2002. The more successful a Ponzi the more egregious the bubble and resultant pain. The granddaddy of Ponzi — far greater than anything we’ve seen before — is our monetary system. Read More

02.28.22- The War on Cash Entering
Bold New Phase

Jim Rickards

With so much news about Ukraine, inflation, 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

02.26.22- Revolution or Reset? – Here we go again!
Charles R. Dickens

It’s been too good for too long.

We’ve grown complacent, lazy, and fat – societally and physically.

It’s how we treat the remains of what we once had. 

Today’s definitions of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are vastly different from the original concept. The analogy here is that we are constantly losing, but not weight. We’re losing our culture – I’m not talking about that experimental stuff growing in a Petrie dish or your unattended refrigerator. Read More

02.25.22- Perpetual Tyranny: Endless Wars Are The Enemy Of Freedom
John W. Whitehead

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes… known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.… No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” - James Madison  Read More

02.24.22- Before We Go To War, Let’s Take A Look At The Current State Of The U.S. Military…
Michael Snyder

If we are going to have a war with Russia, perhaps we should determine if our military is actually prepared to fight such a war first.  Unfortunately, as I will detail below, the answer is very clear.  At one time, the U.S. possessed the greatest fighting machine ever assembled, but decades of neglect, incompetence and cultural deterioration have taken a devastating toll.  Just look at what happened in Afghanistan.  Read More

02.23.22- Dr. Strangelove In The Multiverse Of Madness
Michael Every

In recent weeks myself and my Rabo colleagues have leaned on the blackest of comedy in Dr. Strangelove (and its “Gentlemen! You can't fight in here. This is the War Room!") to describe Western-Russian tensions and their dangerous high stakes for us all. Well, now we enter ‘Dr. Strangelove in the Multiverse of Madness’. There are clashing, mind-bending parallel realities and possible futures all running alongside each other. Read More

02.22.22- Are Some AI's "Slightly Conscious"?
Joseph P. Farrell

Most regular readers of this site – and certainly our members because we talk about such things alot in our vidchats – are aware that one of my high octane speculation scenarios is that super-computers, or even artificial intelligences, may be gaming out complex scenarios for the “elites” with access to them, and that  the “elites,” being the technocratic twits that they are, are blindly following along whatever scripts the computers are writing for them.  I grant you, it’s not a very satisfactory way to rationalize the evil twittery of – oh I don’t know – someone like Justin Trudeau or Dr. Ernst Stavro Klaus von Blohschwab and his cronies at Spectre Davos and the World Economic Forum.  Read More

02.21.22- Existing Global Order Is "One Serious Catalyst Away From A Megaquake"
Doug Noland

Bubbles are sustained only by ever increasing amounts of Credit.

The most pernicious Bubbles are those fueled by “money” – perceived safe and liquid Credit instruments.

Bubbles are mechanisms of wealth redistribution and destruction.

Structural impairment caused by Bubble excess escalates over the life of the boom.  Read More

02.19.22- In Answer to Jefferson’s Question
Neal Ross

I know it may be asking too much of folks, but just for a few minutes I’d like to ask that they put aside their partisan ideologies; long enough to answer a couple of quick questions. The first question is relatively simple; What function/s does government serve that you absolutely could not live without? That’s all I ask; for you to name something that government does that makes its existence absolutely necessary for your survival/well-being. Now that you’ve done that, the next question is; Does the thing that you need government to do for you come at the cost of something that is taken from others; such as their income, or the deprivation of certain rights? Read More

02.18.22- Do You Like Freedom? Mainstream Press Warns This Likely Makes You Part of
"Far-Right Groups"

Matt Agorist

According to Meriam-Webster, the word freedom is defined as the quality or state of being free: such as the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action and the liberation from slavery or restraint or from the power of another. It is the antithesis of control, authoritarianism, and tyranny and its desired ends are paramount to the fostering a more peaceful and just society. Read More

02.17.22- They all “died suddenly” just this past week (February 8-14)
Mark Crispin Miller

Before we note all those whose “sudden deaths” made news just this past week—“unexpected deaths” with no reported cause, or due to heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, cardiac arrest or swift, aggressive cancers (all known to be “adverse events” post-“vaccination”)—let’s review how this unprecedented global spike in sudden death has been deliberately obscured by “our free press.” Read More

02.16.22- The Official Story
Catlin Johnstone

The official story is that we live in a free democracy where our teachers tell us the truth about our nation, our government and our world when we are children, and then the free press continue telling us the truth about our nation, government and world when we are grown, and then every few years we have free and fair elections in which we use this truthful information to make decisions about which politicians and policies to vote for, and it is only by pure coincidence that what we vote for just so happens to benefit the most wealthy and powerful people on the planet. Read More

02.15.22- Scientism and the
New Road to Serfdom

David Stockman

It’s long past time for conservative folks to wake up. Today’s great threat to capitalist prosperity, personal liberty and constitutional government as we have known it is not Marxism, socialism or any other variant of traditional left-wing ideology.

The real threat to liberty is more generic. Rather than a specific history-rooted ideology, such as the working class socialism of the early industrial era, the foundational threat has always been the aggrandizement of the state, and the empowerment of the political classes and nomenklatura that thrive upon it, whatever the ideology upon which they justified their will-to-power. Read More

02.14.22- Separation Or Purge? Sharing A Society With The Political Left Is Impossible
Brandon Smith

Of all the social drivers in history the concept of freedom is the most powerful and fascinating. There are many observable objective truths in the world and it’s always important to recognize them, but the idea of freedom is more rare because it is a universal SUBJECTIVE truth. Meaning, it exists inherently in the majority of individuals; we don’t learn it, we just know it instinctively. Most of us share the experience but there is no microscope or telescope in existence that can observe that experience. We just have to trust it, or perhaps, have faith. Read More

02.12.22- What Happens When Soaring Prices Collide With Tapped-Out Consumers?
John Rubino

Today’s inflation report was, by any measure, horrific. 7% in a country where 2% was, until recently, the upper end of the government’s target range, pretty much guarantees some kind of aggressive response from the Fed (or the bond or currency markets or all of the above).

Here’s the Wall Street Journal’s take on the situation. See if you can spot the flaw in its reasoning: Read More

02.11.22- Truckers forever
Jon Rappoport

The Canadian convoy of many, many trucks, now in Ottawa, and the many, many people supporting it, can’t be written off as some strange breakout group.

This is a popular movement.

A wave.

A reader suggested it’s time for thousands of doctors and health workers, from all over the world, to step up to the plate and issue statements of strong support.

Absolutely. Read More

02.10.22- 1979 vs 2022: Why interest rate hikes are different
Richard (Rick) Mills

Someone born in 1979 is 43 years old this year.

No doubt they will have lived a full life already, having seen huge political shifts like the fall of communism and the rise of China, witnessed the birth of the Internet and the explosion of e-commerce and social media, and lived through a series of public health crises including AIDS, SARS and COVID-19. Read More

02.09.22- The $64,000 Question
James Rickards

By now, you probably understand the situation on the Russia-Ukraine border. Close to 100,000 Russian troops have been deployed along Ukraine’s eastern border.

Will Putin invade? What would be the U.S. and NATO response? Those are the $64,000 questions. The answers have massive implications for the economy, markets and potentially civilization itself. That’s not hyperbole. Read More

02.08.22- Wake-Up Call
James Howard Kunstler

I must say, I believe the truth of our predicament will grow a whole weirder as we stumble into springtime….

How many times have I reminded you that history is a prankster? Who would have guessed that Canada, demure, inoffensive, shrinking violet among nations, would rise to lead a world-wide revolt against the Satanic dominion of digital neo-Bolshevism? I mean, what else can you call it — this political Saint Vitus Dance sweeping Western Civ that seeks to destroy every constitutional liberty, deprive citizens of life, property, and even language, and reduce every individual to an internet-surveilled and controlled automaton… this global megalomaniacal mental illness posturing as “government?”Read More

02.07.22- Buckle Up: Virtual Signaling As Financial Implosion Looms
Matthew Piepenburg

Numerous animal metaphors (hawk, dove to goat) are employed below to make sense of an otherwise imploding financial “barnyard.” Among such squawking beasts, two financial elites from Goldman Sachs and Bridgewater are making the latest noise; but as we soon discover, it’s just that: Noise. Read More

02.05.22- American Media Is a Laughing Stock just like Western “leaders”
Paul Craig Roberts

This morning the presstitute Bloomberg News published a headline: “Live: Russia invades Ukraine.” The dumbshits at Bloomberg, believed their own propaganda. Convinced it was going to happen, Bloomberg had the “invasion” pre-written and up it went on the newswire. The Kremlin spokesman said: “I guess, instead of ‘fake news’, we can now say ‘Bloomberg news.'”  Read More

02.04.22- Hedging The Decline And Fall Of A Currency
Michael Kosares

“Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.” – John Maynard Keynes, The Economic Consequences of Peace (1919)  Read More

02.03.22- Unbelievable
Brian Maher

We encourage professional economists to embrace a more scientific forecasting regimen. For instance: the formulaic reading of tea leaves, tarot cards, bird entrails and the zodiac signs.

That is because their present instrumentalities of economic divination are botched beyond hope. Read More

02.02.22- How to Protest Successfully: The 2022 Freedom Convoy
Martin Armstrong

The 2022 Freedom Convoy is underway in Canada as countless truckers have gathered in Ottawa, forming a gridlock. They have a clear agenda and request — repeal all COVID mandates, now! Prime Minister Trudeau cowardly went into hiding before the truckers arrived and now conveniently claims he tested positive for the coronavirus yet again. He can quarantine, but the truckers will be waiting for him once he runs out of excuses to hide. Read More

01.31.22- Wokeism Is
A Cruel And Dangerous Cult

Victor Davis Hanson

Wokeism’s natural logic is to destroy the lives of people of both genders, of all races, and - if need be - of those of every age, all to leverage an otherwise unworkable ideological agenda...

Wokeism has been described by its critics as the omnipresent use of race—and to a lesser extent, gender—to replace meritocracy and thus ensure equality of result. What follows from implementing that ideology are reparatory actions to reward those of the present by atoning for the injustices done to others in the past. Read More

01.29.22- "YGBSM"
Charles R. Dickens

What luck for rules that men do not think.

“The man who has no sense of history, is like a man who has no ears or eyes.”

The introductory quotes are from Uncle Adolph, who most people despise, but I admire his ability to bend everyone to his way of thinking. I agree that he was a monster, but brilliant nonetheless. Read More

01.28.22- Today’s Two Biggest Challenges to Your Retirement Savings
Peter Reagan

It looks as though the next few years will be a bumpy ride for retirement savers. Not welcome news, considering the fact that today’s “stubbornly, persistently high” inflation looks like it will stick around.

Even worse, some projections we’ve seen forecast a negative annual return on stocks for the next decade. Read More

01.27.22- “Nothing Is Rational Anymore”
Brian Maher

The stairs up… and the elevator down.

Here you have the stock market’s general rate of travel, depending upon its direction of travel.

The stock market has lately made tremendous speed — downward.

It has been imprisoned within a plunging elevator car, stark with terror, abandoned to the mercies of merciless gravity. Read More

01.26.22- The Collapse of the American Dream
Martin Armstrong

The American Dream, where once upon a time, was when a parent saved to raise their children to have a perpetual better life than they had. Parents would save for their college education and they pushed their children to achieve. My father began saving the day I was born for my college education and law school.

Americans, no matter the circumstances of their birth, all shared freedom, opportunity, the right to build private businesses and enterprises, and a republic – “Representative Democracy.” We raised our children believing that they had a legitimate opportunity to live a better life than we did predicated upon their own skills and intelligence. We tried to instill a good work ethic, and that would provide good fortune for the future ahead. Read More

01.25.22- Leadership or Lack Thereof…
Charles R. Dickens

China vs. America – A not-so social media post quoting Bill Maher made me consider our leadership style in America. I include a transcript of Mr. Maher’s program below – without permission – for context and clarity.

I find Mr. Bill Maher snarky and smarmy, but he makes perfect sense from time to time. Read More

01.24.22- “Henrietta, Fetch Me My [Metaphorical*] Pitchfork!”
Ben Bartee

Not an incitement to literal violence. Please don’t sue me. I’m not a domestic terrorist.

Wagner, South Dakota, New Year’s Eve 2021, 10:36 a.m.:

Nostalgic local corn farmer and amateur welder, Clarence Nightingale, recalls a simpler time — when old-fashioned justice meant a public execution in the town square. Read More

01.22.22- The World Is Now the Opposite of Everything it Is ‘Supposed’ to Be
Gary D. Barnett

“Up was down, black was white, good was bad, day was night.”

George Costanza—Seinfeld “The Opposite”

Comedy is a true reflection of life, and in many ways, humor can be used to explain the unexplainable; to expose the ludicrous nature of constant seriousness, and the fallibility of man from the standpoint of critical reality in a not-so-severe manner.  In order to find the truth, it is sometimes necessary to laugh out loud and at one’s self, and others as well, and in the process, come to see things more clearly. Read More

01.21.22- America Cannot Survive Her Fools and Traitors – Unless…
Justin O. Smith

It’s pretty hard to be positive about America’s chances, when we see so many anti-American people in all walks of life in every major region of the country, doing their dead level best to usher in full blown socialism, if not a totalitarian form of communism, regardless of what it will cost our freedom and liberty.

We’re in a whole heap of trouble, yessirree we are. Read More

01.20.22- Perilous Times
Andrew P. Napolitano

These are perilous times. They are made worse by the government’s political reaction to lawless behavior, which is a greater threat to personal liberty than the behavior it seeks to punish.

Last week, the feds obtained an indictment of 11 members of the Oath Keepers for their role in trashing the Capitol building and attempting to interfere with the functions of government on Jan. 6, 2021. The evidence of their guilt of trashing and obstruction is manifest. The hooligans who invaded the Capitol were lawless by any rational standard. Read More

01.19.22- Is the Fed About to Sink Us All?
Jason Bodner

When the Fed speaks, the world listens.

The chair of the Federal Reserve Bank holds the most powerful seat in the world. Sure, POTUS commands all the attention. But no one has a more immediate or long-term impact on asset prices than the Fed chair. Sometimes all it takes is two words. Read More

01.18.22- A Series Of Unpredictable Things That May Or May Not Happen In 2022
Bill Blain

“If you don’t think about the future, you cannot have one”

01.17.22- Dog Gone
James Howard Kunstler

So much chatter in the news media these days about who will be “Joe Biden’s” running mate in 2024 — not that there’s anything wrong with his current sidekick — but I’ve got half a mind to throw my own hat in the ring. That’d make two of us with half a mind and a shot at the so-far elusive ideal to govern least… and therefore govern best! Read More

01.15.22- Yet Another Retirement Risk You May Not Be Considering
John Rubino

The most common retirement plan involves making some reasonable investment-return assumptions and then structuring your annual spending to run your nest egg down to zero at age 90 or thereabouts. Ideally, you spend your last dollar on the day you take your last breath. Read More

01.14.22- What is a Parallel Economy?
[A Road Map]

St. Diogenes

Participating in a society’s economy is essential to everyone’s livelihood. But what happens when the ire of Cancel Culture, or an increasingly oppressive government, sets its crosshairs on a large section of society? A Parallel Economy is born.

A Parallel Economy is an economic system which functions outside the purview of the sanctioned economy. Other names for this are: The black market, the shadow market, or the underground. Parallel economies not only emerge from the desire to profit from illicit activities, they also spring from necessity when a portion of society is shunned from participating in the mainstream economic system.

01.13.22- Bad News, Good News
and More Bad News

Jim Rickards

It’s now 2022 and we’re still dealing with COVID-19 – the number 19 being short for 2019. Lockdowns didn’t stop it, masks didn’t stop it, vaccines didn’t stop it.

In fact, daily caseloads are now higher than they were in the spring of 2020. As always, the virus goes where it wants to go.

The latest variant, the Omicron variant, is a good news, bad news situation. Read More

01.12.22- After the Storm
Raúl Ilargi Meijer

With Omicron taking over at lightning speed, and what we know about it from South Africa and Denmark, it would seem that we can relax. It’s reported to be 100x less deadly than Alpha/Delta, and perhaps less deadly than the common flu. If you’ve had Alpha/Delta, you can still get Omicron, but an Omicron infection appears to make you immune to Alpha/Delta.

As far as we can see, nobody’s dying from Omicron, intubations are rare at best, and positive tests, even if they do end up in hospital, are mostly released as fast as they came in. It’s simply over. It’ll take another few weeks for this to become impossible to ignore, but it’s already there. A number of voices have called for treating it like the flu; Spain appears to have made that its official policy. Read More

01.11.22- NASA, ET and the Vatican
Joseph P. Farrell

I’m taking an odd chance today to blog about a story that caught my eye over the Christmas break, and that I had fully intended to blog about, and then the heart attack happened. But I still want to blog about it, and as I mentioned, I will do as many blogs/week as I am capable.  That may add up to zero, or seven, I do not know. Today at least I have a little residual energy. so here we go. Read More

01.10.22- Despotism Is The New Normal: Looming Threats To Freedom In 2022
John W. Whitehead

Despotism has become our new normal.

Digital tyranny, surveillance. Intolerance, cancel culture, censorship. Lockdowns, mandates, government overreach. Supply chain shortages, inflation. Police brutality, home invasions, martial law. The loss of bodily integrity, privacy, autonomy. Read More

01.08.22- What The Great Ammunition Shortage Says About Inflation
Matt Stoller

Concentration is increasing prices and keeping them high. The ammunition duopoly and the "Great Ammunition Shortage" is just one example.

Covid has done a lot of things to our society. But talk to anyone who enjoys hunting, and they’ll tell you one of result is the ‘Great Ammunition Shortage of 2021.’ "5.56 ammunition for an AR-15 used to be about 33 cents a round," said Mark Oliva, director of public affairs for the National Shooting Sports Foundation. "Now you're looking at closer to almost a dollar a round. So it is much more expensive and it is much more difficult to find ammunition." Read More

01.07.22- This Is What Happens When Millions Of Workers Disappear From The System…
Michael Snyder

We were warned that this would happen.  In 2021, millions of Americans either quit their jobs or were forced out of their positions because of various mandates that were implemented all over the country.  And as I discussed earlier this week, countless other workers either died or became incapacitated last year.  As a result, our society is descending into a state of utter chaos and basic services are breaking down all around us.

Let me give you a perfect illustration of what I am talking about.  On Sunday, a man in St. Louis called 911 because his brother needed to go to the hospital, and it took 10 hours for the ambulance to get there… Read More

01.06.22- Hell to Pay — for Decades
Jeffrey Tucker

It’s been the most astonishing two weeks for American public life. The best way I can describe this is by observation.

In the Northeast of the U.S., and in many other parts of the country, everywhere you go right now, you see sick people milling around. Read More

01.05.22- The Wuhan Crystal Ball
Charles R. Dickens

Once upon a time, in the 16th Century, a French apothecary called Nostradamus used a strange process to predict the future. He’d enter a trance-like state and transcribe his visions – prophecies – into a bazaar four-line prose. Most folks found it unintelligible, but what they could decipher was usually wrong.

His record – 11 hits for 942 predictions.

Forecasting the future is a brutal way to make a living because the fulfillment of your prophecies isn’t revealed for years, decades, and sometimes centuries. Fortunately, like another seer in this commentary, Nostradamus was a very wealthy man.  Read More

01.04.22- What if the largest experiment on human beings in history is a failure?
Dr. Robert Malone

A report from an Indiana life insurance company raises serious concerns.

A seasoned stock analyst colleague texted me a link today, and when I clicked it open, I could hardly believe what I was reading.  What a headline.  “Indiana life insurance CEO says deaths are up 40% among people ages 18-64”. 

This headline is a nuclear truth bomb masquerading as an insurance agent’s dry manila envelope full of actuarial tables. Read More

01.03.22- Reflections On Another Year Of Covidian Lies & How The Truth Will Ultimately Prevail
Rob Slane

As we come to the end of the second year in Covidia, I reflect on just how much the instigators of the entire scam have managed to reshape reality in an amazingly short timeframe, such that what was considered normal 12 months ago is now considered abnormal, and what was considered abnormal 12 months ago is now seen as normal.

01.01.22- The Prospect of World War III
David Stockman

Are these people so abysmally ignorant of history, geography, economics and the wherewithal of a true national security threat that they think the map below is worth WWIII?

Ukraine has never had stable borders, nor has it been a longstanding independent nation state. In fact, for hundreds of years under the czars and commissars alike, Ukraine was at best a vassal state and mostly a provincial satrapy of Moscow. Its current borders were actually drawn to precision by Communist apparatchiks during the Soviet era and thereafter embraced by the Kiev government that emerged in 1991 when the Soviet Union suddenly evaporated.
