05.31.16- The Physics of 9/11
SGT Report.com and 911truthncDotOrg

Given the recent admission about 9/11 by the Saudis: ‘TRUTH BOMB: The Saudis Turn on the Neocons: The US Blew Up The World Trade Center To Create The War On Terror’, we thought it might by time for Americans to review the Physics of 9/11.

Oh, and by the way, if you want to know the absolutely horrifying TRUTH about what really happened on 9/11, including the names of the actual perpetrators, click here. Read More

05.28.16- Memorializing the Horrors of War with 10 Must-See War Films
John W. Whitehead

“The horror... the horror...” - Apocalypse Now (1979)

“You can’t show war as it really is on the screen, with all the blood and gore. Perhaps it would be better if you could fire real shots over the audience’s head every night, you know, and have actual casualties in the theater.”—Sam Fuller, film director and author

Nearly 71 years ago, the United States unleashed atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing more than 200,000 individuals, many of whom were civilians. Read More

05.27.16- Zika, ZIRP, and NIRP Viruses
Gary Christenson

The Zika virus is the newest threat to humanity, especially pregnant women, so they say. Big Pharma is working feverishly to create a vaccine. Chances are the vaccine will be created, highly profitable, and Big Pharma will be “held harmless” for injuries to those who were vaccinated.

Add GM mosquitoes, birth defects, Brazilian Olympics, big profits, and the story becomes a huge distraction. John Rappoport has suggested there is more to the story. Read More

05.26.16- The Case Against Legal Tender Laws
Murray N. Rothbard

The government imposes price controls largely in order to divert public attention from governmental inflation to the alleged evils of the free market. As we have seen, “Gresham’s Law”—that an artificially overvalued money tends to drive an artificially undervalued money out of circulation—is an example of the general consequences of price control. The government places, in effect, a maximum price on one type of money in terms of the other. Maximum price causes a shortage—disappearance into hoards or exports—of the currency suffering the maximum price (artificially undervalued) and leads it to be replaced in circulation by the overpriced money.

05.24.16- Armed Patriots Prepare to Defend Against Federal Encroachment: “This Is The Beginning of The Revolution”
Mac Slavo

It seems that many voices within the federal government are quite concerned about the growing patriot movement throughout the country, and especially in rural strongholds where land and liberty go hand and hand.

More events like the Bundy Ranch standoff seem likely to occur, as the BLM and other agencies show no sign of changing policies, and more and more individuals are waking up to the abuses and tyrannies taking place. Read More

05.23.16- Shame on the U.S. Supreme Court for Making a Mockery of the First Amendment
John W. Whitehead

“The vitality of civil and political institutions in our society depends on free discussion… It is only through free debate and free exchange of ideas that government remains responsive to the will of the people and peaceful change is effected. The right to speak freely and to promote diversity of ideas and programs is therefore one of the chief distinctions that sets us apart from totalitarian regimes.”—Justice William O. Douglas, Terminiello v. City of Chicago (1949)

Shame on the U.S. Supreme Court for making a mockery of the First Amendment. Read More

05.21.16- Why we don’t need a Gold Standard; there is a better alternative
Sol Palha

The first reaction from the hard money camp would be to state we are insane or that we longer value hard money.  Taking that line of thought would only set you on the wrong track; we are not against hard money or the Gold standard. However, most of those in the hard money camp have a hard time dealing with reality.  The reality is that very few even understand this concept and even fewer would be willing to embrace it. In the end, it’s the masses that determine whether or not a new trend, fad or rule will be embraced or not.  Have the masses done anything other than occasionally complain about how prices are rising? Did they embrace the Gold bull market from 2002-2011?  Read More

05.20.16- Are Globalists Evil Or Just Misunderstood?
John Mauldin

I recently received requests from two different readers, one asking for articles covering the “mindset” of globalists (why they do what they do), and another request for articles covering globalist “occultism.” I find that these two topics are very difficult to pursue with a large number of people for a few reasons:

1) Many people do not accept the reality that a group of financial elitists colluding (conspiring) to obtain total global power even exists. Therefore, in order to delve into the topic of the globalist mindset with these “skeptics,” I would first have to re-cover page after page of evidence showing that they not only exist and collude, but that they openly boast about their plans on a regular basis. This is time consuming, to say the least. Read More

05.19.16- Anarcho-Capitalism: The Philosophical Structure for a New Society?
Tim Bryant

Power – the amount of control one has over the ability to act on something.

Power is held at the individual level or in groups, and can be manifested internally or externally. Power can also be attained through individual action or collective action. For example, a person or group could acquire power internally from within or they could obtain power from their interaction with the external environment. On the contrary, power can be taken away internally and externally through negative thought patterns and external forces. Read More

05.18.16- ‘We’re running a f—ing casino’: Politician tells all in manifesto
Carl Campanile

An anonymous congressman has dropped a bombshell election-year book that confirms why Americans hate their national government and have rallied to anti-establishment presidential candidates like Donald Trump.

The veteran politician lays bare a rotten and corrupt Congress enslaved by lobbyists and interested only in re-election in an anonymous, 65-page manifesto called “The Confessions of Congressman X.” Read More

05.17.16- Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!
Mike Rivero

The official story of 9-11 is collapsing almost as fast as the Obamacare website. Most Americans are now well aware of the strange collapse of WTC Building 7, the video that captures the sound of the actual explosion that initiates the collapse of WTC7, the very strange behavior of the Secret Service as President Bush read about goats at Booker Elementary School. We have all seen the photographs that confirm the remains of demolition "cutter charges" in the remains of the towers. And we all know how the BBC reported that Building 7 collapsed 26 minutes before it actually happened. indicating a script was being followed (but alas, not carefully enough). Read More

05.16.16- How Investors Are Duped Each Earnings Season—-Chapter And Verse
Ciara Linnane & Tomi Kilgore

A year ago, we explained the many ways companies make reading their quarterly earnings reports a miserable task.

We weren’t just whining. We wanted to remind companies that our readers regularly tell us they struggle to understand earnings announcements, and our job is to decode them for investors. Making that difficult isn’t helping anyone.

We noted that some of their tactics — inventing or manipulating numbers, using meaningless jargon, distributing lame executive quotes, and more — can be outright damaging, eroding investor trust and creating skepticism. Read More

05.14.16- The Census and the National Debt – Keeping the Slaves on the Plantation
Christina Sairch

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit. We are no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” ~ Woodrow Wilson, 1919

One of the most important freedoms won in the Revolutionary War was the ability to decide whether or not to use a bank’s services. In 1913 a corrupt Congress infiltrated what would become today’s Big Bank special interests, who then turned the banking system on its head. The power to issue money was taken away from the government and given to an elite few banking families and from that day onward, ALL money in circulation was created as the result of a loan at interest from the bankers to the government, to business, and to the people.

05.14.16- Unemployment Claims Spike Again As We Get More Scientific Evidence The Middle Class Is Shrinking
Michel Snyder

As the U.S. economy slows down, we would expect to start to see evidence of this in the employment numbers, and that is precisely what has begun to happen.  During the week before last, initial claims for unemployment benefits jumped by 17,000, which was the largest increase that we had seen in over a year.  Well, last week we witnessed an even bigger spike.  Seasonally adjusted initial claims shot up 20,000 more to a total of 294,000.  Of course it makes perfect sense that more Americans are applying for unemployment benefits, because firms are laying people off at a much faster pace these days.

05.13.16- Watch a ‘tsunami’ of unemployment wash over the United States
Shawn Langlois

With the U.S. economy still dealing with a shaky start to the year and companies cutting back on hiring, the latest jobs number came up well shy of expectations at 160,000 in April.

Furthermore, the unemployment rate held steady at 5%. It was expected to ease.

Still, the labor market, with layoffs at a 40-year low and job openings near a record high, is much healthier than it has been during some dark days in recent years. Read More

05.12.16- What Will The Global Economy Look Like After The ‘Great Reset'?
Brandon Smith

A very common phrase used over the past couple years by the International Monetary Fund’s Christine Lagarde as well as other globalist mouthpieces is the “global reset.” Very rarely do these elites ever actually mention any details as to what this “reset” means. But if you take a look at some of my past analysis on the economic endgame, you will find that they do, on occasion, let information slip which gives us a general picture of where they prefer the world be within the next few years or even the next decade.

05.10.16- Agenda 21: An Introduction
Branko Malic

Nowadays, the word “agenda” is more than just a buzzword or catch phrase. People like to talk about “agendas” to such an extent that they end up believing that everybody has one up his sleeve, ready to throw it on the table at the last moment, proving that his intentions were dubious from the beginning.

On the other hand, as regards the so-called “elites”, in the public eye they are also already slandered as being in possession of various “agendas” and, despite their wealth and power, all they do is being subjected to prescriptions of those “master-plans”. Read More

Chris Martenson

The systems that support us are breaking down

No, that’s not a ‘click bait’ sensationalist title. Things are getting ‘weird’ out there if you’re trying to be polite, and downright 'chaotic' if you're being blunt.  Everywhere we look, we see signs that the systems that support us are breaking down. 

The economy no longer spins off enough surplus for the elites to take what they consider their share with enough left over for everyone else.  So the wealth gap grows unchecked into politically and socially destabilizing levels. Read More

05.07.16- Wall Street Is Falling Off A Cliff, And The Bottom Is A Long Way Down
John Rubino

For the past 50 or so years, the quickest way for a sharp young sociopath to get rich has been to join an investment bank or hedge fund. The former were riding a “regulatory capture” gravy train that became ever-more-lucrative as new government agencies morphed into subsidiaries of Wall Street. Hedge funds, meanwhile, were surfing the wave of easy money that inevitably results from putting banks in charge of interest rates and government spending.

Said another way, when financial assets are being artificially inflated by excessive liquidity, it’s easy to make money by shuffling this ever-appreciating inventory back and forth, and to look very smart while doing so. Read More

05.06.16- How A Collapse In South America Could Trigger Martial Law In The U.S.
Brandon Smith

If an economic system collapses in the woods and no one is paying attention, are there any consequences outside the woods? Well, yes, of course. As with most situations financial and global, however, consequences are not usually taken very seriously until they have spawned a vast bog of sewage we all have to then swim through.

The issue is and always will be “interdependency,” and the dissolution of sovereign borders. Take a close look at the European Union, for example. Read More

05.05.16- By Securing the Nomination,
Trump Has Put Every Loyal American In Danger

Ryan Cristian

Happy days are here again, Trump will be the GOP nominee for President. Since Hillary is such a criminal, she will be easy prey for the general Election. Once Trump is President, the evil corporations which have financially raped the American people, will back off let justice prevail. Then I woke up.

It may be true, that Lyin’ Ted just became Dyin’ Ted and it no longer matters if Cruz was the DC Madame’s best customer, or daddy Cruz was involved with Lee Harvey Oswald. Maybe Cruz’s grandfather came all the way from Canada to have lunch with Sirhan Sirhan. It no longer matters. Read More

05.04.16- Are the banks preparing to use Blockchain technology to get rid of cash?
Ken Schortgen, Jr.

It has been a few years since J.P. Morgan's commodity head Blythe Masters was 'let go' from the bank in 2014, only to resurface as the head of a new digital finance company focused on Blockchain technology.  And while there have been many startups around the world creating their own blockchain innovations, many of which are centered around Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies, one has to wonder what agenda Blythe Masters intends for the technology in her new company.

05.03.16- Israel’s ISIS Conspiracy
Christopher Bollyn

ISRAELI CHIEF OF STAFF AT THE PENTAGON, January 2002 -The Zionist war agenda known as the War on Terror was pushed by the Israeli military and the Zionist Neo-Cons who have dominated policy making at the Pentagon and State Department since 9/11.

The people of the United States have been utterly deceived by the Zionist-controlled government and media about the “War on Terror”, the Zionist fraud that was kick-started by the false-flag terror atrocity of 9/11.  This criminal deception has gone on for more than 14 years and has only succeeded in plundering our national wealth, destroying millions of lives, and ruining American prestige around the world.  It clearly has to be brought to an end or it will be the end of our American republic.

The United Nations released Agenda 2030, or what it’s calling a “new universal agenda” for humanity.

Many are calling this the first public declaration of the long feared “New World Order” or the beginnings of a totalitarian one world government.

Whether or not one believes in the so-called conspiracy theory of the New World Order, the phrase “new universal agenda” and the phrase “New World Order” share the same linguistic meaning. The question is then, are they one in the same? Read More

04.30.16- Bill Gross: "The World's Central Banker"
Has Flatlined U.S. Economic Growth

Tyler Durden

In a recent interview, Bill Gross provided some further truthiness regarding the state of the U.S. economy and the unveiling of the Federal Reserve as the world's banker.

As we've said countless times, Gross reiterates in the interview that the Fed's only contribution to the real economy has been to help create more jobs that aren't adding up to any real economic growth (i.e. waiter and bartender jobs at minimum wage). He points out that U.S. economic growth has in fact flat lined. Read More

Julian Rose,

For a long time now, some force alien to the spiritual and humanistic evolution of humanity has been working hard to subvert, and then reverse, the true awakening of human consciousness.

04.28.16- Taking the petro out of the dollar
Alasdair Macleod

Saudi Arabia has been in the news recently for several interconnected reasons. Underlying it all is a spendthrift country that is rapidly becoming insolvent.

While the House of Saud remains strongly resistant to change, a mixture of reality and power-play is likely to dominate domestic politics in the coming years, following the ascendency of King Salman to the Saudi throne. This has important implications for the dollar, given its historic role in the region. Read More

Don’t Ask for Freedom – Live It!
Zen Gardner

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.” – Albert Camus

That quote pretty much sums it up, at least on one level. What’s fundamentally dystopic is that humanity petitions others for their freedom, as if it’s something to be granted by someone else in a position of authority over them. Not only is that counter intuitive at a very deep level, but it reinforces the very paradigm from which they are trying to escape. Read More

04.26.16- Obama Requests Support for Possible War Against Russia
Eric Zuesse

According to Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten (German Economic News), on April 23rd, U.S. President Barack Obama is “demanding the active deployment of the Bundeswehr [Germany’s armed forces, including their Army, Navy, and Air Force] to NATO’s eastern borders” at Poland and the Baltic republics, to join the quadrupling of America’s forces there, on and near those borders of Russia. (This is an extreme violation of what Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev agreed to when he ended the Soviet Union and its NATO-mirror organization the Warsaw Pact, but it’s actually culminating a process that began shortly after he agreed to America’s terms, which included that NATO “not move one inch to the east.”) Read More

The Great Last Stand

We live at a time when almost everyone is getting poorer except for the elite. The top 1 percent now have close to 50 percent of the wealth in the entire world, and each year wealth becomes even more concentrated in their hands. Thanks to “community agitators” like Barack Obama and George Soros, people are reminded of that fact daily, and after hearing the message over a prolonged period, it’s having the desired effect: society is on the brink of civil unrest.

04.23.16- One Of The Largest U.S. Pension Funds Set To Cut Retiree Benefits
Tyler Durden

A dark storm is brewing in the world of private pensions, and all hell could break loose when it finally hits.

As the Washington Post reports, the Central States Pension Fund, which handles retirement benefits for current and former Teamster union truck drivers across various states including Texas, Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri, New York, and Minnesota, and is one of the largest pension funds in the nation, has filed an application to cut participant benefits, which would be effective July 1 2016, as it “projects” it will become officially insolvent by 2025. In 2015, the fund returned -0.81%, underperforming the 0.37% return of its benchmark. Read More

04.22.16- Why government?
George Smith

Adam is someone who cares deeply about his country, so much so he weighs carefully the statements of the presidential candidates, selects one who seems most favorable to his views, and casts a vote for him or her on Election Day. Even if Adam is a small-government libertarian he will vote.  He will vote because he believes government has a legitimate role in our lives.  In that respect he's in the mainstream of political opinion.  

Would you consider Adam a responsible American?  Most people would. Read More

04.21.16- How Systems Break:
First They Slow Down

Charles Hugh Smith

Alternatively, we can cling to a state of denial, and the dominant system will be replaced by arrangements that are not necessarily positive.

The reality that cannot be spoken is that all the financial systems we believe are permanent are actually on borrowed time. One way we can judge this decline of resilience is to look at how long it takes systems to recover when they are stressed, and to what degree they bounce back to previous levels.

04.20.16- Government Officials Admit to ECONOMIC False Flag Operations

False flag attacks don’t just involve physical deaths and wars

They also involve faked economic events and financial casualties.

For example, two officials of the International Monetary Fund said last month that they needed the threat of an imminent financial catastrophe to force other players into accepting its measures such as cutting Greek pensions and working conditions, and – as the Greek government put it (via Bloomberg) – the IMF was “considering a plan to cause a credit event in Greece and destabilize Europe.” Read More

04.19.16- Genocide In the Gulf: Expected Lifespan of Children Reduced by 25%-Evacuate Now!
David Hodges

Next week marks the sixth anniversary of the “Great Gulf Coast Holocaust”. The media would have you believe it is over. It is not! I guarantee that I am the only writer who is publishing a story on this subject. However, it is difficult to believe based upon the evidence, that the Gulf oil spill is not the number one cause of death in America. This is the most ignore health story of its type. Based upon the epidemiological evidence, the Gulf should immediately be evacuated. The poison is in the air, it is in the water, it is in the food, and it is in the people. Children growing up in the Gulf region, now, should expect a 20-30% lower lifespan than the rest of the country. And the Gulf is still leaking oil. Read More

I’ve gotten some emails from folks asking my opinion on “How’s it all going to end?” As in, what major crisis is going to finally cause the American Giant to fall down and go boom? Guess what? There won’t be a major crisis that does it. It’s going to be a slow cascade reaction of crisis and disasters. What’s more, it has already begun. We’ve already seen several of these disasters. More are on the way. The end has begun and is upon us. Read More

James Howard Kunstler

The mystery is at last revealed: why does the field of candidates for president score so uniformly low in trust, credibility, likability? Why are there no candidates of real substance, principle, and especially of real charm in this scrim of political basilisks? (Surely there are many people of substance and principle elsewhere in America — they just don’t dare seek the job at the symbolic tippy-top of this clusterfuck of faltering rackets.) The reason is that the problems are unfixable, at least not within the acceptable terms of the zeitgeist, namely: the secret wish to keep all the rackets going at all costs. Read More

04.14.16- If Americans elect Hillary president,

Paul Craig Roberts

Richard C. Cook thinks that Bernie Sanders could become the next president.

But could Sanders make any difference?

Obama’s regime was totally different than his campaign messages, just as George W. Bush’s regime was different from his campaign messages. The neoconservatives created the specter of terrorism and successfully used it to create a warfare/police state. The One Percent rakes in the billions of dollars from US financial and military hegemony. These formidable private powers also own Congress. Any president who tried to redress the power imbalance would likely find himself outgunned. Read More

04.13.16- Waxing philosophically
Johnny Silver Bear

I was, again, fortunate this past week when I found myself in a lively debate about the differences between truth and reality. I say "fortunate" because the subject has, at least to me, grown a great deal in relevance over the last sixteen years, as my inuring tenure as your editor has transpired. The Silver Bear Cafe adopted the motto: "the truth is out there" at our onset. I rarely get the opportunity to engage such an cerebral subject with another free thinker, in person.

I fancy myself Jeffersonian Constitutionalist, a champion of liberty, and a seeker of the truth. The combination of these three dutiful involvements provides me meaning and satisfaction, and coalesce into a condition that I consider wholesome, fulfilling, and one that I aspire to continue to achieve. There are too few truth seekers, although the attraction to the truth seems to be spreading in the face of an overtly devolving social condition. Read More

Mac Slavo

With negative interest rates now the order of the day in much of the Western world, it’s only a matter of time before financial institutions start charging American depositors for the privilege of keeping their money safe in the U.S. banking system.

And according to Keith Neumeyer in his latest interview with SGT Report, that could spell disaster for socio-economic stability. Read More

04.11.16- The Government Might Change its Mind on Marijuana
Ryan Stancil

To say that it was a long time coming is an understatement, as is the fact that it's still anyone's guess what will really happen.

Still, the people who make the decisions are having this conversation.

In a memo released to lawmakers earlier this week, on page 5, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) revealed that it is in the process of determining whether it will reclassify marijuana for the purposes of medical research. It hopes to make a decision in the first half of 2016. Read More

04.09.16- Weekend Rant: Who Really Rules America? The Rise of the Jewish Policy Elite: Meritocracy, Myth and Power
James Petras

Introduction: Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court marks a continuation and deepening of the lopsided ethno-religious representation in the US judicial system. If Garland is appointed, Jewish justices will comprise 45% of the Court, even though they represent less than 2% of the overall population.

Roman Catholics comprise the other 55% of the Court – even though they represent approximately 30% of the population. Protestants (historically the authors and signers of the country’s foundational documents, and the major confessional group) are totally absent from this august body of jurists. Read More

04.08.16- Trump Unbound
David Stockman

Even by The Donald’s standards his 95 minute long interview with the Washington Post was remarkable. He let loose so many stray shots as to leave the establishment press clucking in a chorus of disbelief. It undoubtedly started with the stink bomb he lobbied at the ” all is awesome” meme about the US economy and stock market:

Donald Trump said in an interview that economic conditions are so perilous that the country is headed for a “very massive recession and that “it’s a terrible time right now” to invest in the stock market, embracing a distinctly gloomy view of the economy that counters mainstream economic forecasts.

04.07.16- Porn star explains why you are a scumbag who “gets in the way of justice”
Simon Black

The Internet practically exploded this morning after a detailed report was published proving that dozens of corrupt politicians around the world have been stealing public funds and hiding the loot overseas.

In other news, the Pope is Catholic.

Not to make light of this, but this hardly comes as a surprise. There’s some Grade A filth in positions of power who routinely funnel public funds into their own pockets. Whether they secret the funds offshore, buy expensive flats in London, purchase Bitcoin, or stuff cash under their mattresses seems hardly relevant. Read More

04.06.16- Tick..Tick..Tick..You Still Have Money In the Bank? No Gun? No Gold or Stored Food?
Dave Hodges

Donald Trump predicted that the United States is on course for a “very massive recession,” warning that a combination of high unemployment and an overvalued stock market had set the stage for another economic slump.”I think we’re sitting on an economic bubble. A financial bubble,” the billionaire Presidential candidate said in an interview with The Washington Post published this past Saturday.

Lana Clements writing for the Express reports, states that fears are growing for some of the world’s biggest investment banks, as experts warn mayhem could soon rip through markets over the coming weeks. Read More

04.05.16- Time To Wake Up
Jack Perry

I’m afraid I’ve got some pretty bleak news for everyone though it shouldn’t be a surprise. We’re in some pretty serious deep dookey right now. Most people aren’t even aware of it. The United States government would like us to believe this cease-fire over in Syria has given us closure so we can move on now. Except this isn’t the amicable ending of a relationship, like the celebrities running our government think always works out in the end with both people finding snazzy new “life partners” or some-such.

04.04.16- Both Political Parties Are Private Companies; They Represent Themselves, Not the People
The Voice of Reason

If losing the election and maintaining the current party structure, i.e., establishment, if that's what it takes to hold onto the structure then losing the election is fine them, and that's the problem with these people from the beginning of the day to the end.  They don't care about winning.  It's not their priority.  Their own personal preferences, their desires are what matter to them.  And that's been the problem all along."  – Rush Limbaugh

God only knows what kids are taught today, because it’s obviously not the Constitution, but when I grew up, we were taught the United States is supposed be a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, right? Read More

Bill Bonner

Leaning Into the Wind

BALTIMORE – During our lifetime, three Fed chiefs have faced a similar challenge.

Each occupied the chairman’s seat at a time when “normalization” of interest rates was in order.

Recently, we remembered William McChesney Martin, head of the U.S. Fed under the Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations. Today, we compare Martin with two of his successors, Mr. Paul Volcker and Ms. Janet Yellen. We allow you to draw your own conclusion. Read More

Jody Chudley

With so many voices streaming at us through our televisions and computers, a person can’t be blamed for tuning out.

For the most part, tuning out is exactly what we should do. But sometimes it is very important that we pay attention…

By listening to Jeremy Grantham, Jim Grant and a host of other investors, a person could have avoided and profited the crashing of the tech bubble of the late ’90s. Read More

03.31.16- A dyslexic man walks into a bra...
Johnny Silver Bear

The world today is on the verge of a cataclysmic shift. In your editor's opinion, it will not be a positive event, but rather one of a heinous nature. It will be the intended result of a conspiracy, led, in part, by David Rockefeller, Sr. The institutional wealth that he, as patriarch of the Rockefeller dynasty, wields, has allowed his megalomaniac plans of world domination to metastasize in to a full blown threat to the freedom and liberty of humanity world wide. The institutional wealth which provides him the platform and opportunity to wield such power and influence is not, in any way, the result of his energies, but rather, those of his grandfather, John D. Rockefeller Sr. The criminal trusts and illegal loopholes that have allowed this wealth to be amassed reflect the flaws in the system and the disintegrating nature of the American Dream. Read More

03.30.16- Campus Lunacy
Walter E. Williams

The American Council of Trustees and Alumni publishes occasional reports on what college students know. Nearly 10 percent of the college graduates surveyed thought Judith Sheindlin, TV’s “Judge Judy,” is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court. Less than 20 percent of the college graduates knew the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation. More than a quarter of the college graduates did not know Franklin D. Roosevelt was president during World War II; one-third did not know he was the president who spearheaded the New Deal. But it is a little mystery why so many college students are illiterate, innumerate and resistant to understanding. Let’s look at it. Read More

03.29.16- Crossroads, Off-Ramps and the Time of Transition
Zen Gardner

It’s human nature to look for resting places. Naturally there’s a time to rest in many aspects of life, but when it comes to the pursuit of truth and increased awareness and conscious activation there really is no stopping place.

Awakening has its own form of peace and rest by its very nature as we’re tapping into other wondrous realms of empowerment and inspiration. Nevertheless, like swimming, our challenges to learn and grow are ever present and cannot be ignored without serious consequences. Read More

03.28.16- The American People Will Soon Replace Trump As the Main Target of the Criminal Elite
Dave Hodges

I can still remember my shock and horror when I learned how criminal elite choose the next Chairman of the Federal Reserve. The Feds submit a short list of 5 names to the President. From that list, the President chooses one person and nominates that person for Congressional approval. No wonder we have labored under a series of failed economic policies for over a century.

Recently, the American people just received a similar shocking lesson in terms of how the President is chosen. The American people are presented with two names who have been chosen to be candidates, and we the people are allowed to vote for one of two choices. As it is with the Federal Reserve Board nomination short list, so it is with the General Election candidates. Read More

03.26.16- Your Crash Warning Alert System
Paul Mampilly

September 11, 2001. I was on the F train going from my home in Brooklyn to my Manhattan office. When I got in, someone told me one of the towers had collapsed. People were crying — their friends were in those towers.

My office was uptown on Park Avenue about three miles from where the planes had hit. Was another plane coming to hit us too?

I don’t panic in these kinds of situations. Since the markets were closed, I left the office, went to an ATM and took out as much money as I could. Then I started walking to a friend’s house to call my mom to let her know I was OK. Read More

03.25.16- Who’s Anti-American?
Bill Bonner

Guilty as Charged

BALTIMORE – Yesterday, one dear reader wrote in to say we were “cynical” and “anti-American.”

Today, we rise to defend our reputation… such as it is. Cynical? Nah… We’d need a big dose of positive thinking and earnest optimism to be cynical. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, people who are cynical are “suspicious,” “doubting,” and “skeptical.”

We’re way beyond that. We’re pretty sure that the system is rigged… and rotten. Elections are exercises in solemn deceit. And the Fed’s management of the economy is a mixture of delusion and self-serving scam. We don’t have much doubt about it. That’s just the way it is. Read More

03.23.16- The Rule of Law and
the Republic Are Dead

Charles Hugh Smith

To paraphrase Ernest Hemingway: How did you lose your Republic? Two ways, gradually and then suddenly. The Romans experienced this when their Republic was extinguished by Empire.

The erosion of the Republic was gradual: slowly but surely, the lower classes’ representation in governance was curtailed; the Oligarchy of the wealthy and powerful cemented their privileges at the expense of the many; Oligarchs rose above the laws that were supposed to apply to all, and executive power was consolidated in top administrators and the wealthy at the expense of the Senate.

03.22.16- Democracy Struggles To Recover From Betrayal
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

With much help from the failures of neoliberal economic policy and neoconservative foreign policy, we are changing the world.

Look at Bernie Sanders’ inroads on the corrupt Clintons’ control of the Democratic Party. Look at how easily Donald Trump defeated the Republican establishment’s candidates. Some Americans are catching on, shedding their unawareness. I am not confident that Sanders or Trump could bring change. In The Deep State (2016), Mike Lofgren concludes that powerful private interest groups, such as the military/security complex and the financial sector, have hijacked democracy. Read More

Chris Campbell

During the 18th and early 19th centuries, accepting government aid or private charity was stigmatized.

And that was well before the government started to militarize its police force, blow up people all over the world and spy on its own citizens.

Dave Gonigam

We got a flurry of new frontline reports from the war on cash yesterday, after a reader told us his account was shut down — perhaps because his wife used it once too often to send money to family in China. “Suspicious transactions,” you know…

“I was at one of the ‘Big Bad Wolf’ banks,” reads one of these emails, “to deposit some money into my son’s account.

03.16.16- 7 Massive Misconceptions Many Never Question
Makia Freeman

Misconceptions take root in our minds very easily. It takes a determined spirit to weed out all the brainwashing and programming we have taken on. Many people never question certain ideas or conceptions they have. They stop at the phrase itself without any further investigation, almost as though the phrase itself has some kind of magic that stops them from examining it. People need to be careful of confusing what is true with what they want to be true. Just because we all want to live in a just world doesn’t mean we actually do live in a just world. Great problems arise when we take our misconceptions and assert them as fact. Read More

Political and financial turmoil reign around the world, by design.  It is the classic example of the elites at work working their never-fail formula of Problem-Reaction-Solution.  They create havoc of some kind, any kind, wherever they choose, the Problem.  It is usually political upheaval fomenting unrest, and the broader the unrest the better.  It often takes the form of financial turmoil, disrupting a country’s GDP, currency, whatever, as long as there is disruption.  It can be war, a function no other country creates more of than the US. It can be massive immigrant migration, currently underway.  Why does the name Soros come to mind?

Claude Frederic Bastiat (1801-50) — a French classical liberal theorist, political economist and a member of the French National Assembly — wrote an influential essay titled “That Which Is Seen and That Which Is Not Seen.” Bastiat argued that when making laws or economic decisions, it is imperative that we examine not only what is seen but what is unseen. In other words, examine the whole picture.

Americans who support tariffs on foreign goods could benefit immensely from Bastiat’s admonition. Read More

I’m not talking about heavy metals like lead, although unless regular testing is done the nation over or you test your own water with a home kit (cheap, definitely worth it if you are curious to know what’s in your water), how do you know what’s coming out of your faucet is lead-free anyway?

Many people feel small and helpless when confront behemoths like Monsanto and other putrid corporations.  This article will present one possible practical and entirely doable method of removing Monsanto and other chemical industries that dispense death for profit from our world.

The stench of Monsanto and similar industries has reached every corner of the world.  Those of us working for a new world must somehow eradicate this corporate cancer.  Luckily, it really is rather easy if we become of one mind and work to cleanse our world.  The scenario and methodology provided below will focus on the herbicide named glyphosate, but just as easily could be applied to every patented pesticide, herbicide and insecticide that eventually contaminates the human body.

Well, this is about as dark as it gets but it needs to be said. As we’ve known all along, chemtrails are a multi-faceted program. It’s the ultimate delivery system. By poisoning our air it affects every living thing, much like chemically or biologically altering a pond in order to affect all the fish. With this massive program in place, even though they won’t even admit its obvious existence, anything can be loaded onto these air tankers at any time and sprayed onto unsuspecting humanity.

Michael Snyder

Why are so few voices warning the people about what is coming?  We stand at the door of a period of distress that will be unlike anything that any of us have ever known before.  And even though the signs are all around us, very few individuals appear to be willing to stand up and sound the alarm.  Instead, there seems to be a large number of people that are quite eager to criticize the watchmen.  Earlier today, I was having a conversation with a very prominent voice in the alternative media, and we were reflecting on this.  There are so many individuals out there that love to shoot arrows at those that are sounding the alarm, and yet they are doing so little to make a difference themselves.

Say goodbye to financial privacy.

If you’ve been following the financial news, you’ve probably noticed a disturbing trend.

Governments and their lapdogs in the mainstream media want to eliminate paper cash.

The reason is simple. As a Casey reader, you know world governments are using extremely dangerous policies in an effort to stimulate their economies. They’ve printed trillions of currency units. They’ve borrowed trillions more. Their latest scheme is “negative interest rates.” Read More

02.26.16- More U.S. troops killed by Halliburton than by Iraqis
David Swanson

The U.S. government, from Dick Cheney to Hillary Clinton, told blatant lies about the Iraqi government creating chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons in 2002, despite having been informed of the fact that Iraq was doing no such thing. U.S. leaders lied about ties between Iraq and terrorists that they also knew did not exist.

Then the U.S. military attacked and invaded Iraq, in the process heavily bombing old sites of Iraqi chemical weapons from the 1980s, many of those weapons having been provided by the United States. In large part because of the U.S. origin of the old Iraqi chemical weapons, the U.S. kept quiet about them during the new war. Another reason for the official silence was that, during the 2003 U.S. destruction of Iraq, many of those old weapons were seized by fledgling terrorist groups. Read More

It wasn’t supposed to be this way. You allow the Court Jester to run for “president”, in order to make all of the other bought-and-paid-for Stooges look better, in comparison. Then, after everyone has had a good laugh, the deck is stacked in favor of one of the lackeys of Big Business, i.e. the One Bank.

In the two-party dictatorship known as “U.S. democracy”, it was the House of Republicans’ turn to supply a seat-stuffer for the U.S throne. King William, of the House of Democrats had his eight-year reign. King George II, of the House of Republicans had his eight-year reign. King Barack, of the House of Democrats had his eight-year reign. The next king (for eight years) was supposed to be wearing Republican red, but not wearing a jester’s cap. Read More

This is a story about gun control in the US. More importantly it is a story about lies, deceit and the very public disintegration of the corpse of the Republic. That rotting corpse has further degenerated with the seeming murder of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Scalia’s death was first announced as a heart attack and then from natural causes. After that, those who discovered the body said it had a pillow over the head. And then later, in a clarification, it was claimed the pillow rested against the headboard of the bed as well as the head of the dead man.

Officially in charge of defending the dollar, the ESF is the government agency which controls the New York Fed, runs the CIA's black budget, and is the architect of the world's monetary system (IMF, World Bank, etc). ESF financing (through the OSS and then the CIA) built up the worldwide propaganda network which has so badly distorted history today (including erasing awareness of its existence from popular consciousness).

While all the early primary states are in the business of winnowing the presidential field, New Hampshire in the past has set itself apart by spooking the front-runner and supporting a lesser-known candidate. With a crowded field on the Republican side, that type of choice could make things particularly interesting.

Can you spot what’s wrong with that quote, from a Reuters piece out today? Here’s the problem: “could soon fall” implies that Aleppo is on the verge of succumbing to enemy forces. It’s not. It’s already in enemy hands and has been for quite some time. What Reuters should have said is this: “...could soon be liberated.” Read More

But to the contrary, we should spurn what the establishment would have us celebrate. Politics operates according to principles that would horrify us if we observed them in our private lives, and that would get us arrested if we tried to live by them. The state can steal and call it taxation, kidnap and call it conscription, kill and call it war. Read More

Few areas of knowledge have been more heavily mythologized than “American History”. Much of what Americans (and people outside the U.S.) think they know has been heavily fictionalized such as the Battle of the Alamo. Or, it has even been completely falsified, such as the Japanese “attack” on Pearl Harbor, which allowed the U.S. to enter World War II.

Documenting falsified American “history” (as well as the falsified history of other nations) begs an obvious question. Who has both the means and the motive to transform actual historical events into a mixture of tall tales and propaganda, to the degree that this false “history” is written in our text books, and taught in our classrooms?

What a tangled web the global geopolitical situation has become.  Geopolitics and finance have always been interrelated but recently much more so.  As many readers know, I have speculated we would be hit over the head with a “truth bomb” from the East and most likely from Mr. Putin himself.  Just this week Britain has alleged Mr. Putin personally ordered a “hit” on an ex KGB agent for calling him a pedophile  http://nypost.com/2016/01/21/murdered-ex-spy-accused-putin-of-pedophilia/.  Another story came out that Turkey shot down a NATO helicopter which made no press coverage at all in the West.

01.23.16- Weekend Rant: The Right to Tell the Government to Go to Hell - Free Speech in an Age of Government Bullies, Corporate Censors and Compliant Citizens
John W. Whitehead

We’re headed toward another big credit explosion and I think what’s happened in the oil market is will trigger that.  The perfect poster-child of what’s going to happen to the stock market is what’s happened to Kinder Morgan stock.

It speaks volumes about the corrupted nature of our financial markets that this news report does not cause a huge downward price adjustment in the entire stock market:  Read More

01.22.16- Fed Requires URGENT Help From the Treasury- Silver Will Soar Through $400/oz!
Jim Willie

It has an important feature now, with national security stamped on it. This is truly the end game for the USDollar. Big thanks to Rob Kirby and EuroRaj on my colleague team for leading the way and shining the spotlight. Their abilities to see through the maze, smoke, mirrors, and din is impressive.

Consider the many points, which can be connected. As they say, connecting the dots can lead to conclusions more clearly, when the dots display a recognized picture. The deception was well organized, well planned, well delivered, and well done generally. Read More

01.21.16- Like Sheep to Slaughter: You Still aren’t Grasping the Systemic Risk in the Stock Market (or else You Would have Sold Everything Already)
Mike Adams

(NaturalNews) If you still own stocks and mutual fund shares, you still aren't grasping the systemic risk in the stock market. No matter what you claim to BELIEVE, it is your ACTIONS that actually determine your true grasp of reality. Failing to sell all your stock holdings right now could result in massive losses as the world's bubble markets continue with an implosion that could wipe out 50% of current valuations for many stocks.

01.20.16- First the U.S. Government Kills MLK,
Then They Have a Holiday For Him

Jeff Berwick

I awoke this morning eager to see the gains we’d make on our TDV newsletter calls as Middle Eastern markets absolutely cratered on Monday.  The Saudi Arabian stock market is down a stupendous 33% in the first few weeks of January, alone!

But then I noticed the US markets were closed today.  A quick Google search told me it was Martin Luther King day.  Certainly an excellent person (although not perfect, of course) to honor… much better than “President’s Day” where you honor your slave-owner. Read More

01.19.16- The American Revolution - The Sequel
Jeff Thomas

The US is the most observed country in the world. Since it’s the world’s current empire (and since it is beginning its death throes as an empire), it’s fascinating to watch.

Those of us outside of the US watch it like Americans watch TV. It’s like a slow-motion car wreck that we observe almost daily, eager to see what’s going to happen next. We criticise the madness of it all, yet we can’t take our eyes off the unfolding drama. It has all the excitement of a blockbuster movie. Read More

01.18.16- Politicians’ class-privilege:
armed security

Jon Rappoport

“After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.” (William Burroughs, Grand Street no. 37, 1992)

Let me state, for the record, that I’m not in favor of selling guns at 7-Elevens or from street vending machines. There are, however, a few nagging questions about gun ownership I want to scratch, claw, and flagellate, so follow along as I try to take apart a weird, wacky, and wonderful subject. Read More

01.16.16- Weekend Rant: New World Order:
Public Be Damned, Preferably Dead

Michael Noonan

In the midst of this political and economic maelstrom that appears to be reaching its peak since the pivotal 9/11 “attack” on the US, when the twin towers of the World Trade Center were destroyed, partially by an airplane flying into each tower, then more fully by the detonation of all the explosives planted in the buildings to insure their destruction.  Should there be any question as to that assessment, which has gained greater acceptance by those willing to do their due diligence, the unprovoked destruction of building seven [WTC 7] adds proof of how these buildings were planned for certain demolition, in advance.

01.15.16- Canadians Are Panicking Over Food Costs After Currency Collapse
Joshua Krause

It’s no secret that America has a serious inflation problem. Though the Federal Reserve insists that our inflation rate is only at around .5%, we’ve all seen the price of food, rent, healthcare, and energy skyrocket over the past 10-20 years. However, this has been a gradual shift. Canada on the other hand, has just seen the price of every day goods rise precipitously over a very short period of time.

The crash in oil prices has crippled their economic growth, and led to the decline of the Canadian dollar, as well as a predictable increase in the cost of imports like food. For those of us living in the US, this provides a really good example of what life may be like should the dollar take a plunge in the near future. Here’s what our northern neighbors have been dealing with: Read More

01.14.16- The International War on Cash
Jeff Thomas

Back in 2008, I began warning of increasing capital controls that we would see in the future, as a component in the decline of Western economies (Western in the broad sense, including Japan, Australia, etc.)

Along the way, it occurred to me that, at some point, governments might collectively attempt to eliminate paper currency in favour of an electronic currency - transferred from party to party solely through licensed banks. Sound farfetched? Well, maybe, but what if the U.S. and EU agreed on an overall plan, then suggested it to other governments? On the face of it, this smacks of conspiracy theory, yet certainly, all governments would benefit from this control and would be likely to get on board. In fact, it might prove to be the only way out of their present economic problems. Read More

01.13.16- Oregon Standoff: Federal Land Grab vs. the Sagebrush Rebellion
Joel Skousen

The occupation of the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Harney County, Oregon by a small group of armed protesters represents a new and confrontational tactic in the Sagebrush Rebellion--the decades old struggle of Western ranchers against federal control of state lands. While the majority of rancher disputes are against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) the US Fish and Wildlife Service has been just as ruthless--in this case expanding the wildlife refuge at the expense of neighboring ranchers. This week I'll detail the struggle of the Hammond family, and of Ammon Bundy the protest leader. When you read the litany of federal abuse of ranching families, you will better understand why some ranchers are staging an armed resistance. I also give some suggestions on how this can be resolved peacefully. Read More

01.12.16- Some Reflections on
the Right to Private Property

Tibor Machan

Private Property Rights

The first step in the destruction of capitalism must be the abolition of the right to private property.  Marx and Engels were clear about this in The Communist Manifesto. And many who sympathize with this idea of a socialist political economy agree.

This is one reason many such thinkers and activists are champions of land use, eminent domain and related legal measures that render even the most personal of real property subject to extensive government control. Read More

01.11.16- The State of the Union speech
Obama won’t give

Jon Rappoport

“The greatest covert op in the world is demoralization. If you can do that to a population, anything and everything follows.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Suppose, in a burst of exasperation, Obama gave a quite different State of the Union Address to Congress and the American people.

Exasperation? Why? Because Obama wants recognition for his clever and ingenious manipulations. He doesn’t want to be known as a clueless President. He doesn’t want to be remembered as a rank amateur. He wants credit where credit is due. Therefore, he spills the beans: Read More

01.10.16- An Extinction Event

Sickened animals “unlike anything doctors have ever seen” on West Coast — “They’re eating themselves from the inside” — Cancers… liver, pancreas, intestines shut down… infested with parasites and immune to antibiotics — Unprecedented catastrophe to cause loss of 200,000 sea lions.

Al Jazeera, Jan 6, 2016 (emphasis added): In warming ocean, record number of seals and sea lions sicken and starve — Ailing or dead seals and sea lions washed up on California beaches in record numbers in 2015; this year could be worse… They are brought in with all sorts of problems: lockjaw, poisoning, cancer… But most of the record number of seals and sea lions washing up on California’s shores and being brought to a regional rescue center are starving… this slow-motion catastrophe is likely to continue… In 2015, [NOAA] counted more than 4,200 California sea lions, 90 Guadalupe fur seals, and 70 northern fur seals.

01.09.15- Amman Bundy Is the Next Davy Crockett
Dave Hodges

At the conclusion of this article, it will be clear to see that the defenders of the federal building in Burns, Oregon, have no way out. Their fate can be likened to Davy Crockett and the Tennessee Volunteers.

The Proverbial Line In the Sand Has Been Drawn

Amman Bundy released a statement to Joe Biggs of Infowars that “they are ready to lay their lives down”. Read More

01.08.16- "It's A Xanax World"
Bill Gross

The Romans gave their Plebian citizens a day at the Coliseum, and the French royalty gave the Bourgeoisie a piece of figurative “cake”, so it may be true to form that in the still prosperous developed economies of 2016, we provide Fantasy Sports, cellphone game apps, sexting, and fast food to appease the masses. Keep them occupied and distracted at all costs before they recognize that half of the U.S. population doesn’t go to work in the morning and that their real wages after conservatively calculated inflation have barely budged since the mid 1980’s. Confuse them with demagogic and religious oriented political candidates to believe that tomorrow will be a better day and hope that Ferguson, Missouri and its lookalikes will fade to the second page or whatever it’s called these days in new-age media.

01.07.16- Internal War Is Now
On The Horizon For America

Brandon Smith

If internationalists were to get their way fully with the world and future historians write their analysis from a globalist perspective of the defunct American nation, they will probably say simply that our collapse was brought about by our own incompetence - that we were our own worst enemy. Yes, they would treat America as a cliché. They will of course leave out the destructive influences and engineered disasters of elitists, that would just complicate the narrative.

My hope is that we do not prove these future historians correct, and that they won’t have an opportunity to exist. My work has always been designed to help ensure that resistance thrives, but also that it is pursued in the most intelligent manner possible. Read More

01.06.16- Clinton Is Selling Uranium From Bundy and Hammond Ranches to Russians
Dave Hodges

When Donald Trump accused Clinton and Obama of creating ISIS, he was absolutely 100% correct. This fact was undeniably established in 2015 when I interviewed former Army Special Operations Officer and advisor to George W. Bush, Scott Bennett. However, this is merely the starting point of this article.

Both the Bundy and Hammond Ranch affairs is about control of significant amounts  of uranium and the BLM is willing to shed blood in order to procure this uranium for very nefarious purposes. Read More

01.05.16- Turkey’s Erdogan: Drug Kingpin
Stephen Lendman

In a just world, Erdogan would top Interpol’s most wanted list, along with US-led NATO leaders, Israel’s Netanyahu, and Middle East Arab despots – partners in high crimes too major to ignore.

Along with arming and providing safe havens for ISIS terrorists, supplying them with toxic chemical agents, and selling their oil on the black market, Erdogan is a major drug trafficker. Nothing significant happens in Turkey without his knowledge, approval and involvement. Read More

01.04.16- The Hammond Ranch Affair Will Become Waco II
Dave Hodges

The coming showdown between 150+ Patriots who have gathered near Burns, Oregon is grossly misunderstood by the general public. The following paragraphs shed light on both the history of the present conflict between the Hammonds and the federal government as well as the current status of the situation. It is the express hope of The Common Sense Show, that calmer heads prevail and the present crisis does not end in the loss of life.

The Beginning of the Present Hammond Ranch Crisis

Dwight Hammond and son Steve Hammond, were convicted of lighting fires on federal land. Federal prosecutors wanted blood, overreacted and pursued the two in what could be described as a case of malicious prosecution. Read More

01.02.16- Gun Sales Surge In Switzerland As Army Chief Warns "Arm Yourselves"
Tyler Durden

It would appear the people of Switzerland have been listening to their military leaders. Having recently been warned by the Swiss army chief of growing social unrest, SwissInfo reports applications for gun permits in Switzerland increased by 20% between 2014 and 2015, according to a survey conducted in 12 cantons. But while the army proposes "arm yourselves," Swiss crime prevention officials warn against the false sense of security that guns bring.

Whereas in 2011 numerous people in Switzerland voluntarily gave up their firearms, today more and more people are purchasing guns. Read More

01.01.16- Time For Torches & Pitchforks - The Little Guy Is About To Get Monkey-Hammered Again
David Stockman

The reputations of Ben and Janet are going to be eviscerated in 2016. That’s because the US economy will slide into recession in defiance of every claim they have made for their snake oil monetary policies. The plain fact is, massive falsification of financial markets via their “wealth effects” doctrine did not levitate main street prosperity at all; it just fueled another giant speculative mania in the Wall Street casino.
