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

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

09.27.21- Biden Breaking Bad
Janes Howard Kunstler

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

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

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

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

09.24.21- They Intend to Destroy America
Jeff M. Lewis

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

09.22.21- And Then Everything
Happens at Once

James Howard Kunstler

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Salo News Day

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

09.11.21- 9/11 After 20 Years
Paul Craig Roberts

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

09.06.21- Why Do Journalists
Hate 9-11 Truthers?

Philip Kraske

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

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

Michael Snyder

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

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

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

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

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

09.01.21- Fools, Traitors and America
Brian Maher

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

Yet we have long suspected the opposite…

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

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

Please answer this question:

How many traitors occupy the District of Columbia?  Read More

08.31.21- The American Descent Into Fascism
Paul Craig Roberts

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

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

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

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

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

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

08.28.21- Inexplicable Times
Robert M. Hamburger

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

08.23.21- Fear Porn Inc.
Terry Paulding

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

08.21.21- The Smart Money Has Already Sold
Charles Hugh Smith

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

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

08.20.21- Are Vaccines Making COVID Worse?
Alastair Crooke

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

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

08.19.21- A Long, Hot, Angry Summer
Alastair Crooke

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

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

08.18.21- The Propaganda War (Part II)
CJ Hopkons

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

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

08.17.21- Why The Global Economy Is Unraveling
Charles Hugh Smith

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

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