04.06.20- End the Shutdown
04.04.20- Weekend Rant: Fact or Fiction?
This past year was jam packed with news of all sorts. Some was surprising, some of it was expected, while other news seemed to either be another dot to connect or an outlier dot to be connected later. We even got news from time to time which even in today’s world could be considered bizarre or surreal. Suffice it to say, were we receiving the current news of today just 15 years back, the financial and social worlds would have been in outright panic. Not so today, the sheep are sound asleep even while a few well intending herders are sounding the alarm. The populace in general have become dumbed down, beaten down and barely able to read past whatever headline it happens to be for the day. Let’s call the condition “comfortably numb”… Read More
Dear Clueless America,
You are now living under the tyranny you deserve. For the last four years, as truth-telling websites like Natural News were smeared, de-platformed and silenced, you said nothing. You were more interested in your Starbucks lattes, your inflated stock market shares, and virtue signaling your obedience to pop culture than defending the right of people to tell the truth. Read More
04.02.20- The Medically Induced Police State
I have long feared a police state. Not the figurative one we’ve been letting develop for years now. I mean a literal one. Where they can stop you for any reason and ask you for your “papers.” Where they can restrict your movements, and your associations. Where they can confine you to your homes.
Yesterday, this became an unfortunate reality for me and all other Virginians. Mayor Ralph “Blackface” Northam signed an Executive Order that essentially locks my state down. Police can stop any motorist and ask where they are going. If they aren’t going to a doctor or the store, they can be charged with a misdemeanor. For now. And those essential personnel who are still working have been given papers. Yes, “show me your papers” is finally here in the land of the free. Read More
It’s coming… It IS coming! …and so you begin to understand…
A bill has surfaced in the Senate called the ‘Banking For All Act’, sponsored by the Ranking Member of the Senate Banking Committee, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH).>
In the press release, Senator Brown lays out the details of his bill as well as how he looks forward to urging his colleagues to include it as part of the coronavirus economic stimulus package. Read More
03.31.20- Get Ready for World Money
Since Federal Reserve resources were barely able to prevent complete collapse in 2008, it should be expected that an even larger collapse will overwhelm the Fed’s balance sheet.
That’s exactly the situation we’re facing right now.
The specter of a global debt crisis suggests the urgency for new liquidity sources, bigger than those that central banks can provide. The logic leads quickly to one currency for the planet. Read More
03.30.20- Forced Liquidation
Historians of the future, pan-roasting fresh-caught June bugs over their campfires, may wonder when, exactly, was the moment when the financial world broke with reality. Was it when Nixon slammed the “gold window” shut? When “maestro” Alan Greenspan first bamboozled a Senate finance committee? When Pets.com face-planted 268 days after its IPO? When Ben Bernanke declared the housing bubble “contained?” Read More
“That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.”― Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale
Not only are the federal and state governments unraveling the constitutional fabric of the nation with lockdown mandates that are sending the economy into a tailspin and wreaking havoc with our liberties, but they are also rendering the citizenry fully dependent on the government for financial handouts, medical intervention, protection and sustenance. Read More
03.27.20- Coronavirus Rhapsody
A few days ago, Dr. Tedros, the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) repeated what he said already a few weeks ago, that there are about 20 pharmaceutical laboratories throughout the world that are developing a vaccine for the novel coronavirus, named COVID-19, also called 2019-nCOV, or SARS-CoV-2. For the layman, it is just a stronger mutation of the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) virus, that broke out in 2002 / 2003, also in China. To be sure, a mutation made in a laboratory. In a US high-security biological warfare laboratory. In other words, both SARS and COVID-19 – among many other bio-war agents – were made in the US.
And now, the chaotic western-style race of private corporations for a vaccine wanting to outdo one another, has begun. Read More
03.25.20- Boiling Frogs
The Boiling Frog Syndrome goes something like this: "If you throw a frog into a pot of boiling water, he will jump out. But if you place a frog into a pot of cold water and and turn the heat on low, it will float there quite placidly. As the water gradually heats up, the frog will sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot tub, and before long, with a smile on its face, it will unresistingly allow itself to be boiled to death. Now I'm not sure this really works with frogs, (I couldn't bring my self to find out), but I am certain that it works with people. I believe that we are all sitting in a big pot and the water is beginning to boil. Read More
Many believed from the start that this virus was either a biowarfare weapon, a strategy to crash the American system, or both. It is starting to get serious and alarms are now sounding in earnest. Many will suffer. Can food riots and critical supply shortages be on the horizon? The leftists will crank up their trusty disinformation machine and do all they can to create chaos.
During the course of research for my book “Rules for Defeating Radicals”, a fundamental principle of the leftist Alinsky ideology became glaringly apparent. Leftists never truly care about any cause they claim to champion. It is always and only about exploiting the plight of others to gain political leverage and power. Read More
03.23.20- In a Time of Crisis, Let’s Stand Together
For quite some time, aided and abetted by a rapacious media and take-no-prisoners howlers-at-the-moon on social media, “partisanship porn” has been America’s most enduring frame of reference. You’re either with me or you’re the enemy, the idiot, or simply beneath contempt. Thus one must be ridiculed, defriended, socially ostracized, and/or ignored. All of our differences are irreconcilable and civil war inevitable.
Except that it’s not… Read More
03.21.20- “The State Is Not Your Friend”
Before we get to today’s essay, a quick note on the gold markets…
Regular readers know our founder, Doug Casey, sees gold as the ultimate safe-haven asset. So if you’re wondering why gold has been taking a hit this week amid massive sell-offs on Wall Street, you’re not alone. But it’s still an important protective asset to hold for the long term.
In fact, we’ve seen this happen before – take the recession of 2008. Just a few months after hitting bottom, gold started a massive rally, hitting an all-time high of over $1,900 an ounce. Read More
The reality that the Republic of the United States of America is under assault and that we are a gnat’s eyelash away from losing our country—and much of the rest of the world—to the Communist Luciferian Left comes as no surprise to many of us. If there was still any doubt that the purpose of our adversaries is that takeover, one need only look at their latest effort to create fear and mayhem over a “new” disease that appears to cause far fewer deaths than the more well-known and experienced flu. However, the Leftists’ current campaign to tout this recent strain of Coronavirus (one of many which we’ve experienced as the ‘common cold’ for hundreds of years) has pushed populations of humans off the rails and into the cold unforgiving arms of insanity. Both men and women are fighting each other over “provisions” in stores. Read More
03.19.20- Germs, Immune System
Please, please, please take a step back, take a deep breath and watch the four short videos below (about 30 minutes total). Then later, when you have time – watch the equally important 3+ hour long “Rich Man’s Trick” video that will help any interested person de-mystify the current chaos of the planet’s manufactured Zombie Apocalypse and the inevitable world-wide economic Depression that is designed to enable the Oligarchic, Multi-billionaire Robber Barons to make massive investments and buy up as many of the struggling and/or bankrupt companies that couldn’t pay their mortgages because of the artificially-imposed Recession/Depression (a la the Cheney/Bush Big Bank Crisis/Stock Market Crash of 2008).Read More
03.17.20- Panic? You Haven't Seen Anything Yet...
One rule every preparedness expert should go by is to always be concerned when establishment authorities, the media and "shoe shine boys" start volunteering their "expert" opinions on why you should not be concerned about a particular danger. The establishment most likely has an agenda to keep you passive, and the shoe shine boys are simply regurgitating what they hear from the media like good little robots. These people are far too interested in whether or not you are preparing for a threat; in fact they seem hell bent on talking you out of preparation in general. Why is that? Read More
03.16.20- Black Swans, Dead Cats, Live Bats, and Goodbye to All That
Had enough excitement yet? At least the stock markets are following an established script: the bubble pops, the elevator drops, for a while it stops… and then investments sink to the deepest sub-basement, where they linger for a long, long time. Hello, next great depression…. We know how that story goes, even if it hurts.
This corona virus is something else. It engulfs whole populations in a fog of confounding narratives. Is it no worse than a bad common cold, except for old folks already half-gone with chronic illness? Or does it really slam people even in the midst of life? Read More
03.14.20- Weekend Rant: We are ALL slaves now
States in our constitution are definitely places with borders. Federal and state and local laws operate within and out of state borders which is defining them specifically as a place. We are licensed and identified by the state and border in which we reside. A good example for this is the War Between the States.
To me, a person who is desiring a cloak of protection by an entity prefers coddling in all aspects of their life including control of their own self expression. In other words, they enjoy being slaves. Lovers of repression. Read More
03.13.20- Will The Coronavirus Kill
Dr. Brian Monahan, attending physician of Congress, told a closed meeting of Senate staffers this week that 70 million to 150 million Americans - a third of the nation - could contract the coronavirus. Dr. Anthony Fauci testified that the mortality rate for COVID-19 will likely run near 1%.
Translation: Between 750,000 and 1.1 million Americans may die of this disease before it runs its course. The latter figure is equal to all the U.S. dead in World War II and on both sides in the Civil War.Read More
The year 1348, in the words of historian A.L. Maycock, was the closest that humanity ever came to going extinct.
That was the year the Black Death descended on the European continent. And many historians today estimate that it killed as much as 60% of Europe’s population.
Italy was hit especially hard by the plague. Port cities like Venice were accustomed to receiving ships from all over the world, and many of them carried the Yersina pestis bacteria which caused the plague. Read More
In the first link a college professor who emigrated to the US from the Soviet Union as a young woman describes the Sovietization of America. She doesn’t mean that the economy has been communized or socialized. She means the rise of denunciation in place of reasoned discourse.
Education has become the home of wokeness and Identity Politics. These ideologies allow “people to hound and persecute with impunity. People love it because it allows a little person to completely destroy somebody who has done something great. This is very human. Once you have removed any moral or religious obstacles to that behavior, what’s to stop anybody?” Read More
03.10.20- The Space Force and 5G
If you’ve been concerned about the roll-out of 5G, then you’ll be interested in this little story from Popular Mechanics shared by F.L.M., because you’ll find it confirms some of our worst suspicions about both the Space Force, and 5G:
The opening of this article says it all: Read More
03.09.20- Mr. Magoo, SHUT NATO DOWN
Sorry, but no.
Kill it. With fire, if you must. With nuclear fire, if ordinary fire fails.
I’m speaking of NATO.
It’s worse than useless, it’s destructive.
Remember, the premise of alliances like this is that an attack on one member is an attack on all. Read More
The US purports to be the land of free speech, but you can always expect politicians to carve out exceptions…
The US purports to be the land of free speech, but you can always expect politicians to carve out exceptions. Just look at how government agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service can slither their way into the political affairs of individuals and organizations. Read More
The Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Global Cases Monitor shows that the mortality rate of the epidemic is very low. At the writing of this article,1 there have been 92,818 cases, 3,195 deaths, and 48,201 recoveries. It is normal for the media to focus on the first two figures, but I think that it is important to remember the last one. The recovered figure is more than ten times the deceased one. This should not make the reader ignore the epidemic, but it is worth reading the scientific study that shows that the death rate in citizens under age 60 is less than 1.3 percent, 0.2 percent in the young population, and a maximum of 4 percent on average. Read More
I’ll leave the media and the medical community to speculate about the impact the coronavirus will have on the nation’s health, but how will the government’s War on the Coronavirus impact our freedoms?
For a hint of what’s in store, you can look to China—our role model for all things dystopian—where the contagion started. Read More
International Man: Australia has proposed a law that provides a $25,000 fine and two years in jail for those who make cash transactions of $10,000 or more. If passed, the Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill could be implemented in 2020.
Do you see this legislation as Orwellian?
Jeff Thomas: Oh, yes, very much so. The claim by the Australian government’s Black Economy Taskforce is that the law will help stamp out tax evasion, money laundering and other crimes. Read More
A comprehensively corrupt U.S. intelligence apparatus warns voters that foreign influences are attempting to support any candidate adverse to the interests of a corrupt Intelligence Community. Americans:
What a Deep State message. According to the interests who transmit the warning… Read More
A month ago, it seemed like a dead-set certainty that the Dow would hit 30,000 sometime in the first quarter. But now, I’m not so sure. Why?
Well, first, Bill and I have shown how the market has been divorced from fundamental measures of value for a long time. The S&P 500 trades at 2.4 times sales, for example. At 30.63, the CAPE Shiller P/E – a common valuation metric – is higher now than it was before Black Thursday in 1929. Read More
02.29.20- The Economic Cataclysm Ahead
The economic storm hasn’t passed; the false calm is only the eye of the financial hurricane…
To understand the economic cataclysm ahead, do the math. Those expecting the Covid-19 pandemic to leave the U.S. economy untouched are implicitly making these preposterously unlikely claims:
02.28.20- Bear Stearns Déjà vu?
Having traded as high as $1691 in COMEX April gold and $18.92 in March silver on Monday on near-record volume and closing not far from those levels as of the 1:30 PM EST settlements, prices sold off sharply in the always thinly-traded afterhours. As expected, the all too common occurrence drew complaints of market rigging. To be sure, the sudden selloff was deeply suspicious, but the suspected culprits were not surprising when one examines the known data. Those long had nothing to gain by driving prices sharply lower when trading liquidity was at its lowest. The only entities that stood to gain by the sudden selloff were those most short – aka the 7 biggest short sellers. Read More
Twenty years ago I would have laughed in your face if you had told me that I would spend the remainder of my life studying history. I hated history in school; the boring textbooks, the remembering of names and dates of certain events; it all seemed so useless to me at the time. The only history teacher I had who tried to make history fun was Jim Gross, my junior year U.S. History teacher; and I was too into drugs at the time to appreciate his efforts.
Merriam Webster’s online dictionary defines history as: a chronological record of significant events (such as those affecting a nation or institution) often including an explanation of their causes. Read More
China's notoriously militant censorship has been turned up to eleven during the coronavirus outbreak. They have made it illegal for healthcare workers, crematoriums, and anyone else involved in the response to discuss the situation - disrupting attempts to provide an accurate picture of what's going on amid the largest quarantine in human history.
Beijing is also using their Orwellian grip over their internet to crack down on the spread of information from citizen journalists, such as Fang Bin and Chen Qiushi - who recorded dozens of reports on the situation in Wuhan, and have both disappeared. Read More
Special Note: As of this moment, the Internet space is awash with every theory and hypothesis, speculation and suspicion, debate and argument imaginable about the origin and purpose of the Wuhan coronavirus. However, at this point, all that really matters are the answers to two key questions: Who did it? And, why did they do it? There’s a third question that can also be asked that greatly facilitates the process of discovery—“Cui bono?” Read More
02.24.20- Did you know…?
When Thomas Jefferson saw there was no negotiating with Muslims, he formed what is now the Marines (sea going soldiers). These Marines were attached to U. S. Merchant vessels. When the Muslims attacked U.S. merchant vessels they were repulsed by armed soldiers, but there is more.
The Marines followed the Muslims back to their villages and killed everyone in the village. Read More
What follows is one of the most important interviews of the year. Biological warfare expert Prof. Frances Boyle appeared as a guest with Alex Jones on the Alex Jones Show, sharing his “smoking gun” findings about the coronavirus being engineered as a weapon that’s designed, “for efficient spreading in the human population,” according to one of the science papers he references.

02.20.20- Impure Thoughts
What if the Corona virus turns out to be a genuine pandemic with legs, not some punk-ass, flash-in-the-pan bug like SARS… and infects hundreds of millions around the world…? And what if it happens to go logarithmic in the USA, as in China now…? And what if takes a few months, or half a year, to do that…? And what if Americans will not get on airplanes when that happens…? Or gather together in large numbers…? Or if government imposes quarantines …? Will the parties hold their nominating conventions? Might the November election have to be postponed? Read More
02.18.20- High Noon at the American Academy
America is in crisis. The citizenry is fragmented, polarized, and angry. The media, Hollywood, and academia hate the President, who doesn’t care much for them either. This elite trifecta, along with the coastal, urban upper class, not only loathes Trump, but is contemptuous of Middle America and its traditional virtues. But the battle to preserve these virtues and the very possibility of self-government among future generations of Americans can no longer be waged merely at the level of politics. It must now be fought on every college and university campus across the nation. Read More
As we wander through the fog of history in the making, unsure who is lying and who is telling the truth, seemingly blind to what comes next, I look to previous Fourth Turnings for a map of what might materialize during the 2nd half of this current Fourth Turning. After a tumultuous, harrowing inception to this Crisis in 2008/2009, we have been told all is well and are in the midst of an eleven-year economic expansion, with the stock market hitting all-time highs.

02.14.20- Bioweapon Unleashed
02.13.20- America the Corrupt
Listen: we don’t have to agree about everything. We don’t even have to agree about most things.
We don’t have to love each other. We don’t even have to like each other. And we certainly don’t need to think alike or dress alike or worship alike or vote alike or love alike. But if this experiment in freedom is to succeed—and there are some days the outlook is decidedly grim—then we’ve got to find some way of relating to one another that is not toxic or partisan or hateful or so self-righteous that we’re doomed to failure before we even start. Read More
Over the last several decades, have we ever seen a year start as strangely as 2020 has? Global weather patterns have gone completely nuts, large earthquakes are popping off like firecrackers, it looks like the plague of locusts in Africa could soon develop into the worst in modern history, and a massive plague of bats is severely terrorizing parts of Australia. On top of all that, African Swine Fever is wiping out millions upon millions of pigs around the globe, the H1N1 Swine Flu is killing people in Taiwan, there have been H5N1 Bird Flu outbreaks in China and in India, and the H5N8 Bird Flu has made an appearance at a poultry facility in Saudi Arabia.

I wish I could be more optimistic towards the future of America, and I suppose I might be, if I bought into the mirage of the manipulated “Great Economy” that I know must end one day soon … probably when the Repurchasing Market bubble bursts. But, when one looks at all the legislation that has been passed during just Trump’s administration that contravenes the Bill of Rights, I cannot be optimistic, since money means little to me without Liberty. Properly run government ensures both prosperity and Liberty to the people, and in large measure. Read More
Lies are a powerful form of magic; they can mislead large groups of people into making terrible errors, as well as cause them to be blind to the obvious. Lies make people hurt themselves while thinking they are helping themselves. It is a truly dark and horrific act of sorcery.
As the world stands at the edge of a global pandemic event, the people who are immune to the effects of lies have an opportunity to take action should the virus continue to expand beyond the borders of China. We have a small window of time, perhaps a couple of months, in which we can prepare ourselves for the fallout and ensure we are as protected as we can be. Read More
02.07.20- Coronavirus: What We Can Say Publicly & What We Can’t
If you’ve been watching our Youtube video series on the Wuhan Coronavirus (2019nCoV) pandemic, you know that it’s time to prepare.
Yes, we can always hope that the latest unconfirmed potential treatment marks an actual turning point (i.e. treating patients with HIV protease inhibitor drugs) . But it’s much better to be safe than sorry.
You’re probably reading this because you tend to think critically, and you trust your own judgment. Weirdly, that sets you apart from the masses. And so here you are. Not because you’re weird, but because it’s weird that common sense and prudent caution are so uncommon. Read More
Presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) criticized the Iowa Democratic Party Tuesday for botching its first-in-the-nation caucus, accusing the Democrat National Committee (DNC) of “rigging” its primary contest in favor of billionaire candidates like former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“Thousands of people turned out to cast the first votes of this presidential primary in the Iowa Caucuses last night,” Gabbard said in a statement. Read More
02.05.20- Jerome Powell
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
“And when we see that we’ve reached that level we’ll begin to gradually reduce our asset purchases to the level of the underlying trend growth of demand for our liabilities.”

02.04.20- Coronavirus Update
Using more recent data from China of the coronavirus’ infection and death rates than the Indian scientists had, “Moon of Alabama” concludes that the “pandemic” has reached its peak and will be over with in a month.
If so, then Jon Rappoport was correct in the beginning that coronavirus was just another big scare hype.
Let’s hope that this is the case and that the coronavirus is a far less threat than ordinary flu. Nevertheless, such a happy outcome still leaves us with a lot of puzzling questions. Here are a few of them: Read More
02.03.20- Brexit: The Unquenchable Fire
Brexit is one of the most historically significant events of recent times. It was the precursor to Trump, it heralded the populist movement across Europe, and it was the first moment that the world realized that the ideology of globalism was not a fixed fate, inescapable and unstoppable.
When we read history, more often than not, we focus on the events and the great happenings. We contemplate and wonder at the surrounding circumstance, and question how these things got started, what was the impetus to the historical event? We know the players, we know the dates and the number of people involved, but we rarely hear of the motivations, or at least what the primary cause of said motivation might be. Not so with Brexit. Read More
02.01.20- America At War Forever
Film-maker Oliver Stone has won 12 Academy Awards for his films. But this outstanding record doesn’t help when he seeks financing for a film critical of one of America’s wars.
Hollywood practices the same censorship as CNN, the New York Times, and the rest of the presstitutes who champion war. Stone notes that we never hear the point of view from the countries that are labeled “threats,” such as Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and Venezuela. Read More
01.31.20- Democracy And Tyranny
During President Donald J. Trump's impeachment trial, we'll hear a lot of talk about our rules for governing. One frequent claim is that our nation is a democracy. If we've become a democracy, it would represent a deep betrayal of our founders, who saw democracy as another form of tyranny. In fact, the word democracy appears nowhere in our nation's two most fundamental documents, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. The founders laid the ground rules for a republic as written in the Constitution's Article IV, Section 4, which guarantees "to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government." Read More
The world today suffers from highly fragile economic and geopolitical conditions. This is not news to most people in the liberty movement that have been tracking the downward spiral for years, but it is news to a majority of average Americans who rarely venture to get in-depth information on any issue. The fact of the matter is, even though there are millions of us who are aware of the danger, we are still in a minority.
This creates a serious set of frustrations. When the common citizen is oblivious to the existence of a threat, trying to explain to them the source of that threat becomes a waste of time. How can they see the root of the problem if they don't even know the problem is there? Read More
June I’ll turn 62, and over the course of those sixty-two years I’ve been to a lot of places and seen and done a lot of things; some that I’m not so proud of. However, I’m not here to write a tell all article about the life and times of Neal Ross, I’m here to write about the changes that have taken place in the country I love over the course of those six decades. I may be wrong, but I think change is coming about at a much faster rate now, almost exponentially, and many of these changes are quite troubling to me. Read More
Often when we think of the word psychopath, we think of deranged serial killers that are hopefully locked up in prison for life. While there are many psychopaths who kill for reasons that are unfathomable to most of us and who are indeed in prison, there is an even greater number roaming free in our society and often using their condition to their advantage in any way possible. In fact, it is very likely that you know some–they might even be your colleagues. Read More
A Complex Psyop Perpetrated to Distract, Enforce Mandatory
Everything Points to Biowarfare Being Used Against
01.25.20- Who Rules America?
A government, whatever its nature, rules as an imperial power over its people. The surest way to exercise this control is to prop up the illusion that it acts in the public interest.
01.24.20- The Future of What's Called "Capitalism"
Whatever definition of capitalism you use, the current system isn't it so let's call it "capitalism" in quotes to indicate it's called "capitalism" but isn't actually classical capitalism.
Try a few conventional definitions on for size:
Capitalism allocates capital to its most productive uses. Does the current system actually do this? You must be joking. Read More

01.22.20- Funeral Arrangements
As they like to say in the horror movie trailers: It… begins…! (Cue bassoons and waterphones.)
If last Wednesday’s solemn and prayerful parade through the Capitol rotunda was the Democratic Party’s funeral march, then impeachment starting this week may be the burial service. Central casting couldn’t have found a more perfect funeral director than the grave and genteel Mitch McConnell. Read More
01.21.20- The American Love Affair With War
Donald Trump’s recent assassination of Iranian Maj. General Qassem Soleimani was not an exceptional act of madness by a deranged president. It was instead the continuation of a long, unfortunate American tradition. Military aggressiveness has been a feature of U.S. foreign policy for a very long time.
As I detail in my book Crimes and Cover-Ups in American Politics: 1776-1963, Americans love to portray themselves as the “greatest,” the “good guys” in each of their nearly continuous foreign skirmishes. Read More
No matter what you think of him, there's no denying that Bernie Sanders is a man on a singular mission.
The stage is being set by Democrats and the complicit left-wing media (CNN) to turn Jan. 20th “Lobby Day” in Richmond, Virginia into a false flag bloodbath that will attempt to frame gun owners as terrorists and provide the justification for state-wide martial law and the confiscation of all firearms from citizens.
Ultimately, the plan is to escalate the conflict into regional civil war and widespread chaos that Democrats hope could help destabilize America and remove Trump from office, no matter what it takes. Read More
01.17.20- When no one else will…
Freedom and liberty no longer matter to Democrats or Republicans, both of whom are showing themselves all so willing, all the more willing, to sell America piece by piece to the highest bidder, and individual liberty and national sovereignty be damned, as they collect their 30 pieces of silver at the expense of the American people.
You get the government You vote for, and our society is so damned CORRUPT that all we have today is RAMPANT CORRUPTION Throughout States and Federal Government DESPITE ANY “GOOD INTENTIONS” of the Trump Administration. Read More
01.16.20- The Machines Have Us Trained for Obedience
Many decades ago there was an issue of Mad comics that portrayed a future time when everything was done by robots and humans had no function. One day the system failed. As it had been eons since humans had to do anything, no one knew how to fix the system. It was Mad comics version of Armageddon.
I think that is where the digital revolution is taking us. I remember when appliances and cars responded to humans, and now humans respond to them. When I grew up cars and home appliances did not go “beep-beep” to remind you of the things you were supposed to do, such as turn off the car lights and take the keys out of the ignition, or turn off the oven and shut the fridge.

In my article 'Trump Impeachment And The Civil War Scenario', I warned that conservatives and leftists are being pushed to the brink of a shooting war using various methods of social manipulation and 4th Gen warfare, and that this conflict, if dictated by gatekeepers of the false Left/Right paradigm, would only benefit establishment elites in the long run. Internal division among the public is designed to keep us at each other's throats while losing focus on the real enemies. Read More
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – The Dow hit 29,000 this morning. Wow!

What a market! And this was just after President Trump showed how easy it would be to cause a real disaster, by provoking Iran to fire missiles at U.S. bases in Iraq. Read More
Eight dollars and 41 cents. About the cost of a Chipotle burrito. That’s how much Uri Rafaeli owed the treasury in Wayne County, Michigan, for property taxes. To get that $8.41, the county took his house and sold it for $24,500 (or about 3,000 burritos). They kept every penny for themselves.
There is a word for this practice: theft. And Wayne County is not the only one winning big on the minuscule mistakes of the little guy: it’s every county in Michigan and in a dozen other states, as well. Read More
01.11.20- Weekend Rant: The New Politics of Sex
Several years ago four of us who were high school and Georgia Tech classmates got together for a reunion to remember the fun times of our youth while we could still remember. A day or two before our reunion there had been one of those massive “gay pride” marches in New York or San Francisco. One of us asked where so many members of the Queer Nation had come from as we had experienced high school and college without ever encountering a homosexual. Read More
What in the world are the Iranians thinking? After President Trump decided not to respond militarily to the rockets that the Iranians fired at U.S. bases in Iraq, it appeared that a major war had been averted. People all over the world celebrated this unexpected turn of events, and global stock markets soared. But now the Iranians are changing their tune again. Instead of “standing down”, top Iranian leaders are warning that “harsher revenge” is on the way and that there will be more attacks against U.S. forces. I think that Iran correctly perceives that Trump does not want a war, but if Trump gets pushed too far he will hit the Iranians extremely hard. Read More
01.09.20- The American Love Affair With War
Donald Trump’s recent assassination of Iranian Maj. General Qassem Soleimani was not an exceptional act of madness by a deranged president. It was instead the continuation of a long, unfortunate American tradition. Military aggressiveness has been a feature of U.S. foreign policy for a very long time.
As I detail in my book Crimes and Cover-Ups in American Politics: 1776-1963, Americans love to portray themselves as the “greatest,” the “good guys” in each of their nearly continuous foreign skirmishes. While it certainly appears to any disinterested observer that we are the initiator in most, if not all, of these conflicts, the official mantra is that we are never at fault. We are only defending ourselves, even if the opponent is smaller and weaker to a laughable degree, as it usually is. Read More
Whether you want it or not, the war with Iran has already begun. It is kind of sad that the pundits on our cable news channels are so clueless about what has happened. They seem to think that there is still a debate about whether we will go to war with Iran or not, but meanwhile the Iranians believe that the war has already started. Of course most Americans don’t want such a war, and President Trump didn’t intend to start one, but we now have one nonetheless. Over the past few days, vast hordes of Iranians mourning the death of Qassem Soleimani have been literally screaming for “war” and “revenge” at the top of their lungs. Read More
Only shared a few images and an introduction here. The article is worth reviewing, at least to see the scope of the fire.
Because of its relative isolation as “the Land Down Under”, the apocalyptic Australian wildfires throughout all of 2019 have received scant attention from the Mainstream Media (MSM).

01.04.20- Weekend Rant: Democrats Are Pushing America Into Civil War
Civil war becomes likelier with every passing day.
With the failure of the doddering Mueller’s Democrat-inspired coup attempt, the disaster of Schiff’s impeachment hoax, and Nadler’s … hearing comprised of angry leftist academics, the country has learned a valuable lesson; the Democrats will never accept Trump as the duly elected president — no matter how much of a landslide he wins by in 2020. And as Michael Walsh has pointed out. “They never stop, they never sleep, they never quit.”
Unbridled hatred will do that. Read More
President Donald J. Trump has done some fine things in the domestic and foreign policy arenas, but even so, despite what the nearly 63 million Americans who voted for him believe, President Trump is not the best thing in America to have come along since sliced white-bread. Unfortunately, with each passing day, he has proven himself to be the Big Spending, Big Government fascist that I knew him to be in 2015. Regardless of his “good deeds”, any American, who stays silent in the face of this president’s current harmful executive orders and signed pieces of legislation, such as the recent Omnibus bill that he signed on December 20th 2019, is not a conservative or a patriot. Read More
01.02.20- The Silent Witness of “Metropolis”
A remnant from the late ‘20s, “Metropolis” has come into the light once again and in a more complete way. While the industrial environment and modern work have changed, the concern for social justice and questions about technology are just as intense as they were when the film premiered.
In a search for movies considered classics, I came across the 1927 film, Metropolis. Not knowing what to expect, I was nevertheless interested to know why it was a famous classic of silent film. In watching it, I soon realized why. The film is a work of outstanding artistry. Read More
The 2020s may one day be called the “decade of insanity,” given all the insane things believed by a surprisingly large number of people. The frantic beliefs of these people are, of course, driving them to the brink of insanity. We see this with Greta Thunberg and the climate change lunatics, who are all convinced the world will literally be destroyed in 10 years if we don’t stop using fossil fuels (that’s item #3, see below). Read More
12.31.19- The Ethics Of A Gold Standard
The efficacy of a metallic monetary system is beyond dispute at least among real economists which eliminates just about 95% of whom are now engaged in the “profession.” Money, which gold is, allows for specialization, the division of labor, and provides the means for mankind to escape from barter and, thus, a primitive existence. Like free trade, money naturally integrates mankind both among and between peoples.
A system of central banking with an unbacked paper currency is the antithesis of a gold standard. Manipulation of currencies by central banks, mostly through debasement, hinders trade, creates distortions, and ultimately leads to the dreaded business cycle. Murray Rothbard aptly describes the baneful results of state intervention in the monetary system: Read More
The problem, as always, is that voters are likely to say they want Congress to balance the budget, but are less likely to back any specific ideas for doing so.
The year 2020 will almost certainly mark a return to trillion-dollar federal deficits despite a full decade of consistent economic growth.
Most Americans are well aware that's a worrying combination. Unfortunately, that message hasn't reached policymakers in Washington, D.C., who seem happy to add ever larger sums to the bill future taxpayers will have to pay. Read More
12.28.19- Is Social Media The New Tobacco?
If we set out to design a highly addictive platform that optimized the most toxic, destructive aspects of human nature, we'd eventually come up with social media.
Social problems arise when initially harmless addictions explode in popularity, and economic problems arise when the long-term costs of the addictions start adding up. Political problems arise when the addictions are so immensely profitable that the companies skimming the profits can buy political influence to protect their toxic products from scrutiny and regulation.

Speech, thought and culture are being policed on a terrifying scale.
During the past decade, and especially this year, those in positions of influence have tried to change the narrative through which society understands itself.
There is an insidious crusade afoot aiming at controlling what the public sees, hears, thinks and believes. This project, which seeks hegemony in various Western cultures, is no less pervasive and thoroughgoing than previous attempts at thought control by totalitarian and theocratic regimes. Read More
12.26.19- The 10 Worst State Laws Proposed and Passed in 2019
If you think silly and arbitrary bans are a thing of the past, think again.
In April, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, proposed banning the popular video game “Fortnite,” saying it was irresponsible to allow kids to play it.
“The game shouldn’t be allowed,” said the former bad boy prince. “It’s created to addict. An addiction to keep you in front of a computer for as long as possible. It’s so irresponsible.” Read More
12.25.19- Christmas in Flyover Land
Last year, a local guy started renovating a restaurant on Main Street that has been shuttered for at least fifteen years. He’d retired from the army and started a company that made a fortune clearing landmines in faraway lands where US nation-building plans went awry. Wasn’t that a ripe business opportunity! He’s from here and loves the village and married his high school sweetheart — and would like the place to come back to life. Read More
12.23.19- Something Big Is About To Drop
There are many American politicians that desperately need a distraction away from their own crminality. Some of the areas of criminality include Ukraine, association with the cartels, laundering money, selling out to CHICOM interests, privately selling our water to the CHICOMS, child-sex-trafficking, burning down homes in No California and on and on it goes. A short list of the people that need a distraction from their criminal behaviors are Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Paul Pelosi Jr., Paul Pelosi Sr., Gavin Newsome, Shifty Schiff, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer and of course Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Queen bee, Hillary Clinton, and on and on this list goes as well.

Frankly, I couldn’t care less about the whole impeachment thing.
I’m a resident of Puerto Rico, so I couldn’t vote in the Presidential election if I wanted to. Which I don’t. I haven’t voted in years because I have a hard time believing that my vote really matters.
Plus, as the animated comedy South Park so eloquently puts it, an election decision usually comes down to a choice between a giant douche and a turd sandwich. Read More
12.19.19- Has The Sleeping Giant
It seems the Democratic Legislature in the State of Virginia has decided that they will simply do away with the Second Amendment in that state. Oh, they will take sort of a Fabian approach and do it as gradually as they are forced to but there can be little doubt that’s their socialist intent. And they may well hope to be a bell weather for the rest of the country–sort of a “well, if we can do it so can you” sort of thing.
However, it seems that folks in many Virginia counties, particularly folks in rural counties are less than enthusiastic about the state legislature’s Fabian plan to do away with the Second Amendment. Read More
12.18.19- Neoliberal Economics Destroyed the Economy and the Middle Class
According to official US government economic data, the US economy has been growing for 10.5 years since June of 2009. The reason that the US government can produce this false conclusion is that costs that are subtrahends from GDP are not included in the measure. Instead, many costs are counted not as subtractions from growth but as additions to growth. For example, the penalty interest on a person’s credit card balance that results when a person falls behind his payments is counted as an increase in “financial services” and as an increase in Gross Domestic Product. The economic world is stood on its head. Read More
12.17.19- Lessons From Atlas Shrugged:
Ayn Rand’s 1957 dystopian novel Atlas Shrugged remains a controversial piece of literature to this day. It is generally remembered for its advocacy of free market capitalism, something hardly revered in the age of Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez socialism. While many chastise the book−some even proclaiming that they will “burn the book!” (yes, I actually knew someone who held this view; a bit reminiscent of Nazi Germany I must say) −perhaps some of us find it rather enlightening to the soul. Beyond its political implications, Atlas Shrugged provides for us a complex life philosophy to guide the rational man. In this series of articles, I will endeavor to take apart some of the “lessons” embedded in this philosophy. Read More
12.16.19- Why Is The System Rigged?
It’s crazy season, that special time on the American calendar when aspiring candidates for the nation’s highest office try to outdo each other in an effort to attract more voters to their platforms.
This time around, background support is provided by a virtual anvil chorus of anti-capitalism clatter. Senator Elizabeth Warren, for example, frequently unleashes criticism of American capitalism by asserting that the “system is rigged,” a complaint that seems to resonate with meaningful populist appeal. It’s an old refrain that has echoed across the years from Karl Marx onward. Read More
12.14.19- The Revenge of the Illusionists at
“Our impulses are being redirected. We are living in an artificially induced state of consciousness that resembles sleep… The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are nonexistent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance. They have made us indifferent to ourselves…, to others…, we are focused only on our own gain. Please understand they are safe as long as they are not discovered. That is their primary method of survival: To keep us asleep, keep us selfish, keep us sedated.” – “They Live” (1988), John Carpenter, Universal Pictures, Release date: November 4, 1988 Read More
12.13.19- Who Are The Globalists
I get the question often, though one would think it's obvious - Who are these “globalists” we refer to so much in the liberty movement? Sometimes the request comes from honest people who only want to learn more. Sometimes it comes from disinformation agents attempting to mire discussion on the issue with assertions that the globalists "don't exist". The answer to the question can be simple and complex at the same time. In order to understand who the globalists are, we first have to understand what they want. Read More
When I was asked to write an article about the impact of negative interest rates and negative yielding bonds, I thought this is a chance to look at the topic from a broader perspective. There have been lots of articles speculating about the possible implications and focusing on their impact in the short run, but it’s not very often that an analysis looks a bit further into the future, trying to connect money and its effect on society itself. Read More
“Taxman,” the only song written by George Harrison to open one of the Beatles’ albums (it featured on the band's 1966 Revolver album), is a snarling, biting, angry commentary on government greed and how little control “we the taxpayers” have over our lives and our money.
The very first amendment to the U.S. constitution deals with the sensitive subject of freedom of speech, and it is sacred to many people, who feel that the 1st amendment protects their religious, ethical and other freedoms. The right to have your own opinion and express it freely is something cherished by most Americans.
Nonetheless, freedom of speech is under attack, not just in the United States, but across the globe. Countries like China are famous for openly censoring the exchange of ideas and information that they deem to be unacceptable or threatening. Read More
(Scroll down for video) Dr. Alan Keyes, former U.S. Ambassador and presidential candidate, is one of the most admired conservative thinkers in America today.

12.07.19- Living On Borrowed Time
How soon until the consequences of our excesses catch up with us?
The laws of physics are governed by cause and effect. But there can exist a time lag between the two.
Note how the speed of both the bullet and the retracting latex far exceed that of the shockwave or gravity on the water contained inside each balloon.
There’s an observable time lag during which the globe of previously-contained water momentarily hangs there in space.
Then, a beat later, it’s obliterated. Read More
“It is the responsibility of the patriot to protect his country from its government.”—Thomas Paine
While Congress subjects the nation to its impeachment-flavored brand of bread-and-circus politics, our civil liberties continue to die a slow, painful death by a thousand cuts.
Case in point: while Americans have been fixated on the carefully orchestrated impeachment drama that continues to monopolize headlines, Congress passed and President Trump signed into law legislation extending three key provisions of the USA Patriot Act, which had been set to expire on December 15, 2019.

12.05.19- Yet Another Bankster Death, With Two Major Interpretations
There’s been another mysterious banker “suicide”, and this one really has me wondering, because there appear to be two major lines of interpretation being advocated as an explanation for this banker being suicided. And one of those explanations really has me wondering if, perhaps, finally, we have a clue that might explain all the other ones that have occurred in the past few years. We’ll get back to that, because it’s the core of today’s high octane speculation. The first version of the explanation emerges in the Zero Hedge article covering the story, the version which was spotted by many readers here and passed along to me (thank you to all of you).

12.04.19- Can Truth Be Our Future?
On December 31 this website will be eight years old. It originated when readers called me out of retirement—all two months of it—and put me back to work. The readership has expanded dramatically, but the financial burden is carried by a relatively few core group of monthly donors, supplemented by responses to my quarterly calls for donations. These occur in March, June, September, and December. This is my quarterly call for donations in December 2019. Read More
12.03.19- Hitler’s War Crimes vs. Those of Churchill & the Americans
When we want to demonize someone the worst epithet we can think of is to call him a Nazi or compare the person to Hitler, as Hillary Clinton did when she declared Russia’s President Putin “the new Hitler.” This ingrained habit comes from the influence of the massive anti-German World War II propaganda. Revisionist historians who have actually dug up the buried evidence and examined it have made a case that whatever the Nazi crimes, they were rivaled, if not exceeded, by those of Churchill and the Americans.
Unz, a prolific reader with a knack for tying things together reviews some of the true history in what follows. Read More
Politicians who promised to “drain the swamp” of public corruption and to “clean house” have been the very champions of swamps and financially dirty houses…
The world is currently mired in massive malfeasance in office by senior government officials, including heads of state and government, who are more interested in personal gain than in government service. Mixed in with financial and political scandals in dozens of nations is the specter of some government officials being involved in illegal sexual activities with underage individuals. Read More
11.30.19- Weekend Rant:
If capitalism did not exist, it would be necessary to invent it — and its discovery would be rightly regarded as one of the great triumphs of the human mind. But as "capitalism" is merely a name for freedom in the economic sphere, the theme might be stated more broadly: The will to freedom can never be permanently stamped out.
Under complete world totalitarianism (in which there was no free area left from which the totalitarian area could appropriate the fruits of previous or current discovery and invention, or in which its own plans could no longer be parasitic on knowledge of prices and costs as determined by capitalistic free markets) the world would in the long run not only stop progressing but actually go backward technically as well as economically and morally — as the world went backward and remained backward for centuries after the collapse of Roman civilization.

The first few years of Plymouth colony were fraught with hardship and hunger. Economics had a lot to do with it.
Next year at this time, Americans will mark the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower in 1620 and the subsequent founding of the Plymouth colony by English Separatists we know as the Pilgrims. They, of course, became the mothers and fathers of the first Thanksgiving. Read More
11.28.19- The Invention of Modern Slavery Called Democracy
“All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives. The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Read More
11.27.19- Our Republic Is In Crisis:
The United States Republic has been under a sustained assault since 2016, by a Democratic Party, that has used every mechanism and maneuver possible to undermine President Trump’s administration; and it now self-describes itself as “the Resistance”, an incendiary title most usually ascribed to insurgents fighting an occupying military power and not a “Loyal Opposition”. Their worldview is so far removed from America’s Founding, so antithetical, that they now stand as the Enemy from Within, as they engage in a war to cripple a duly elected government by any means necessary, and this cannot be allowed, if this nation is to continue as a true Republic… Read More
Yesterday was the 56 anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Not a story about it in the major media…New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN.com, etc.
Also forgotten was President Trump’s broken promise to release all the confidential files of John F. Kennedy’s assassination by 26 April 2018.
Here is the inside story told to me by then-Texas Gov. John Connally, who was seriously wounded when he took a bullet in the back sitting in front of Kennedy. Read More
11.25.19- The Hollowing Out Of America
Here is hollowed-out America, an economy of ever-greater financial wealth piling up in the hands of the few while tens of millions of wage-earners can't afford what was available to everyone, even the working class, in previous eras.
America is being hollowed out, but since we don't measure what actually matters, the decline has been deep-sixed by the government and media. As I explain in my new book Will You Be Richer or Poorer?, there are a number of reasons why what's important --social capital, for example--doesn't get measured. Read More
"Liberty," Thomas Jefferson wrote, "is unobstructed action according to our will; but rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will, within the limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others."
We've recently celebrated another Veteran's Day, where we've heard all the usual "freedom isn't free" speeches extolling the role of the U.S. military in protecting our liberties. I've got nothing against the military and respect those who served in it, but wish that Americans would spend less time waving the flag and trading in bromides—and more time thinking seriously about the precarious state of our freedoms.

“When a man unprincipled in private life[,] desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper . . . despotic in his ordinary demeanour — known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty — when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity — to join in the cry of danger to liberty — to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion — to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day — It may justly be suspected that his object is to throw things into confusion that he may ‘ride the storm and direct the whirlwind.’”—Alexander Hamilton Read More
“I have never in my life ‘loved’ any people or collective … I indeed love ‘only’ my friends and the only kind of love I know of and believe in is the love of persons.” ~ Hannah Arendt, German born Jewish thinker and a refugee to America, 1941
Americans are sleep walking towards the edge of their own destruction and do not seem to have a clue, or even really care, as they pop the top off another Coors or Coke, sing along with Ol’ Black Betty as they dance a jig at the local “knife and gun bar”, hit the Titans’ game on Sunday to sing along with the anthem and eat a Hershey bar afterwards, not realizing that it’s all about to come to an end.

11.20.19- Reclaiming Your Inner Fascist
OK, we need to talk about fascism. Not just any kind of fascism. A particularly insidious kind of fascism. No, not the fascism of the early 20th Century. Not Mussolini’s National Fascist Party. Not Hitler’s NSDAP. Not Francoist fascism or any other kind of organized fascist movement or party. Not even the dreaded Tiki-torch Nazis.
It’s the other kind of fascism we need to talk about. The kind that doesn’t come goose-stepping up the street waving big neo-Nazi flags. The kind we don’t recognize when we’re looking right at it. Read More

As of November 15, 2019, the rule of law no longer exists in the United States of America.
This has become abundantly apparent with the rigged jury decision to incarcerate Roger Stone for the “process crime” of misstating memories during interrogations with federal agents. In an era where Hillary Clinton is openly allowed by the director of the FBI(treasonous criminal James Comey) to destroy evidence, obstruct justice and get away with high-level crimes because “she didn’t mean to” violate the law, Roger Stone is about to be sentenced to what will essentially be life in prison (he’s 67 years old).

11.17.19- Deceived in Liberty: The Curse of American Nationalism
All governmental power is propped up by an avalanche of myths and superstitions about the alleged benevolence, omniscience, honesty, selflessness, and magnanimity of the state, coupled with critiques if not outright demonization of private property, free market voluntarism, private enterprise, limited government, the rule of law, the free society, and all those who educate about and advance such concepts.

A U.S. representative who has been pressing the Treasury Department, Federal Reserve, and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) with questions about the gold and silver markets has asked Attorney General William P. Barr to try intervene and get answers from the commission. In a letter dated November 1 and made public today, the U.S. representative, Alex W. Mooney, Republican of West Virginia, commends Barr for the Justice Department's recent criminal prosecution of manipulation in the monetary metals futures markets. Read More
11.14.19- Trump Impeachment And
There has been a lot of talk the past year about a civil war in the US, so much so that even the mainstream media is pushing the concept lately. A poll from Rasmussen in 2018 claimed that 31% of US voters believed that America would see a second civil war within the next five years. A more recent poll from The Institute Of Politics And Public Service shows that 7 out of 10 voters believe the US is two-thirds of the way towards civil war.
New talk of “impeachment” over the Ukraine issue has stirred the soup even further as some conservatives argue that if Trump is removed from office a war will erupt. Read More

11.12.19- Now That We've Incentivized Sociopaths... Guess What Happens Next
As long as central banks create and distribute trillions in conscience-free credit to conscience-free financiers and corporations, the incentives for sociopathy only increase.
"Sociopath" is a word we now encounter regularly in the mainstream media, but what does it mean? Here is a list of 16 traits, many of which are visible in lionized corporate and political leaders and entrepreneurs.
One key trait is a lack of moral responsibility or conscience; the sociopath feels no remorse if he/she takes advantage of people or exploits them. Read More
Now that the “quid pro quo gate” hoax has collapsed, like the Russiagate hoax, the presstitutes are inventing a new quid pro quo hoax. It wasn’t money that Trump dangled before the Ukrainian president in exchange for an investigation of Ukraine’s contribution to the Russiagate hoax. It was a presidential visit to Ukraine. I listened to the latest CIA-directed presstitute plot unfold today on NPR. Three semi-males devoid of integrity did their best to substitute a visit to Ukraine by Trump for the unsubstantiated promise of money. The visit is all third hand as there is no mention of such a visit in the telephone conversation between Trump and Zelensky. Read More
“What happens to Julian Assange and to Chelsea Manning is meant to intimidate us, to frighten us into silence. By defending Julian Assange, we defend our most sacred rights. Speak up now or wake up one morning to the silence of a new kind of tyranny. The choice is ours.”—John Pilger, investigative journalist
All of us are in danger.
In an age of prosecutions for thought crimes, pre-crime deterrence programs, and government agencies that operate like organized crime syndicates, there is a new kind of tyranny being imposed on those who dare to expose the crimes of the Deep State, whose reach has gone global. Read More
Normally my blood pressure runs somewhere around 115/70; not too bad for an old man. However there are times I’d be willing to bet it runs upwards of 185/110; those times typically occurring when I see or hear things that piss me off. Some of my best commentaries have come out of such instances of being extremely angry, as they are pure emotion and my brain doesn’t bungle things up by thinking too much about what I’m saying.
There are times, however, that I become so angry that I find it hard to think at all. When that happens every sentence I type is a struggle, as I have to pause and try to calm my mind down enough long enough to form a simple sentence. Luckily I don’t get THAT angry very often, and when I do it wears off relatively quick… Read More
11.07.19- We Fly Too High
Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete by means of wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus’ father warns him first of complacency and then of hubris, asking that he fly neither too low nor too high, so the sea’s dampness would not clog his wings nor the sun’s heat melt them. Icarus ignored his father’s instructions not to fly too close to the sun; when the wax in his wings melted, he tumbled out of the sky and fell into the sea where he drowned, sparking the idiom “don’t fly too close to the sun”.

Once intelligent people are talking about actual civil war in America. This began after Trump retweeted a pastor saying impeachment would cause a “civil war-like fracture in this Nation.” Never mind that it was a retweet, and never mind that the original statement used “like” to make a comparison. The next headline was set: Trump Threatens Civil War If He’s Impeached. Newsweek quoted a Harvard Law professor saying that the “threat” alone made Trump impeachable. Another headline asked: “If Rage Brings Civil War, Where Will the Military Stand?” Read More
11.05.19-- Trapped in our own Fairy Tales
Only common sense can save us from our own obliteration
We can’t escape the conditioning that has misled us throughout our lives to properly assess the damage we have done to ourselves by letting our societies go as far down the road to totalitarian chaos as they have. Not only are we at a loss as to how to correct the imbalance between haves and have nots, but the vast majority of the population should now worry about their planned elimination in this multifaceted social tsunami now being inflicted upon us by forces often described as “too big to fail”.
What are you going to do? Defend a government planning to kill you? Is that how docile your modern conveniences have made you? Read More
Chris’ note: Chris Reilly here, managing editor for Casey Daily Dispatch.
A couple of weeks ago, I flew out to Aspen, Colorado to catch up with legendary speculator and bestselling author Doug Casey.

Doug also shared his thoughts on President Trump… and more importantly, what could be in store for America. Read More
The lawless, deranged Democrats have already launched a hot civil war against conservatives and Trump supporters by targeting them for physical violence in restaurants and other public places. They’ve published the home addresses of Trump donors, and they’ve called for the mass killing of all conservatives, Christians, Trump supporters and gun owners. Read More

The political discourse — or lack of it — has apparently become so caustic in the United States that 67% of those surveyed in a poll released Wednesday believe a another civil war is imminent.
The poll was conducted by Georgetown University’s Institute of Politics and Public Service as part of their annual Battleground Poll civility survey, and according to the institute’s executive director, the results could indicate that the 2020 election could be as divisive and explosive as the 1860 election that precipitated the Civil War of 1861-65.

10.30.19- The End of Accountable Government
For about 70 years the CIA has been undermining a free press. It began with Operation Mockingbird, a Cold War operation against communism. The CIA recruited journalists into a propaganda network. The CIA paid journalists to write fake stories or to publish stories written by the CIA in order to control explanations that served the agency's agendas. Student and cultural organizations and intellectual magazines, such as Encounter, were suborned into the CIA’s propaganda network. Thanks to the German journalist, Udo Ulfkotte, we know that every European journalist of any significance is a CIA asset. Read More

Now if only we could all wake up, cast off the divine chains of these divine tyrants and rid ourselves of this Most Dangerous Superstition...
The President of the United States is in danger of losing the mandate of heaven.” Thus spake Pat Robertson during the recent brouhaha over Syria where the unthinkable notion that the US might actually pull out of a war zone instead of putting more troops in it began to materialize last week.
Now, you might be tempted to dismiss this as just another raving of Pat “God blessed the Gulf War” Robertson, and you wouldn’t be wrong. But still, that’s quite the phrase: The “mandate of heaven.” What does it mean? Well, it turns out he didn’t just make that up himself. Read More
10.26.19- Weekend Rant:
It is now more apparent than ever that Donald J. Trump was the creation of someone or something very powerful. He was wound up and escorted directly from his Reality TV world, onto the national political stage.
As I’ve noted many times, Trump’s radical, often revolutionary campaign rhetoric appealed to millions of disgruntled citizens like me. I found it difficult to believe that this lifelong One Percenter- of whom I held a not terribly detailed but decidedly negative impression- could possibly be saying such things. Read More

One of the advantages of 401(k)s and traditional IRAs is tax deferral.

10.23.19- Enter, the Dragon
You’d think Hillary Clinton might come up with a better zinger than “Russian asset” when she flew out of her volcano on leathery wings Friday and tried to jam her blunted beak through Tulsi Gabbard’s heart. Much speculation has been brewing in the Webiverse that the Flying Reptile of Chappaqua might seek an opening to join the Democratic Party 2020 free-for-all. Wasn’t “Russian asset” the big McGuffin in the Mueller Report — the tantalizing and elusive triggering device that added up to nothing — and aren’t most people over twelve years old onto that con by now?

Even before Rep. Tulsi Gabbard threatened to boycott the October 15th Dem debate as the DNC usurps the role of voters in the Democratic primacy 2020 election and with an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump on the table, the Swamp was stirred and its slimy muck may be about to come to the surface as never before. If so, those revelations are long overdue.
It is no secret to the observant that since the 2016 election, the Democratic Party has been in a state of near-collapse, the victim of its own hubris, having lost their moral compass with unsubstantiated Russisgate allegations; those accusations continue as a futile exercise of domestic regime change.

Rene Magritte’s 1929 painting “The Treachery of Images,” depicts a tobacco pipe with a caption that reads “Ceci n’est pas une pipe,” (French for “This is not a pipe”). Everyone who has taken a course in modern art knows that Magritte’s exercise in contradiction was meant to draw a distinction between a real thing and a representation of that thing. Perhaps we should send Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell a beret and an easel as he is attempting a similarly surrealistic take on monetary policy. Read More
10.15.19- These ever-so-logical conclusions should dismay even the most
It is undoubtedly my favorite part of every wedding. That awkward, but strangely forthright moment when the preacher asks the crowd for any objections to the couple’s marriage. No one ever objects, of course, but it’s still a raw, if tense, moment. I just love it.
I suppose we had that ubiquitous ritual in mind back in 2007 when Keith – a close buddy and fellow officer – and I crafted our own plan of objection. The setting was Baghdad, Iraq, at the start of the bloody civil war the U.S. invasion had unleashed. Just twenty three years old and only eighteen months out of the academy, my clique of officers had already decided the war was a mess, shouldn’t have been fought, and couldn’t be won. Read More

They sure are trying their best. To do what? To goose markets higher. It’s been quite the spectacle all year, but this Friday sure took the cake. The entire week had been a giant jerk fest of sudden rips and dips as headline chasing algos were ripping through support and resistance levels unleashed like fat kids at the candy shop. But this Friday was something else, almost designed to have markets overdose on an insulin spike.
Ever more hyped up on an impending China deal, every meeting, and movement of negotiators caused market spikes, a Trump tweet about “warm feelings”, a $82.7B repo operation by the Fed to keep things tidy, a sudden out of the blue $60B/month Treasury buying operation announced by the Fed, multiple Fed speakers to boot, what a scene.

10.11.19- Trump Is History and So Is the USA
When I read this evening in The Hill, which I mistakenly thought was a legitimate news publication rather than a weapon against President Trump and the Republicans, that the documented fact that Joe Biden and his son received between them $1,750,000 for preventing any Ukrainian investigation of the corrupt firm Burisma was mere unsupported “allegation,” and that the Trump Department of Justice had indicted two associates of Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s most fervent supporter, for “campaign finance violations,” a very elastic term, it became completely clear that Trump’s own Justice (sic) Department is part of the Deep State’s plot to destroy Trump.

Let's start by stipulating my bias: I would cheer the collapse of both self-serving, venal political parties,which have stood by for decades as the rich have become immeasurably richer and the politically powerful few have disempowered the many. The transparent "populist" bleatings of both parties--"we serve the people!"--sound increasingly like stale, pathetically disconnected from reality Soviet-era propaganda. Read More

The deep state Democrats (now a monolithic terrorist network that’s trying to take down America) have a plan in place to install Hillary Clinton as President of the United States before the end of this year.
Full details of the plan are explained in the video below. Here’s the summary of the steps the deep state Democrats hope to achieve:
Step 1) Fake an impeachment of President Trump and whip up media hysteria to gaslight the entire nation into thinking Trump is being impeached when it’s all an act (with no real vote in the House, no legal bearing and no legitimacy). Read More

In the summer of 2016 during the election campaign I examined the Trump phenomenon and how it relates to the globalist narrative. I concluded that Trump would be president based on the fact that having a (supposedly) hardcore nationalist and populist conservative in the White House over the next four years would in fact be highly beneficial to the elites. At the time the Federal Reserve was getting ready to tighten liquidity, which would inevitably lead to market volatility and a crash in fundamentals. By the end of Trump's first term, or perhaps at the beginning of his second term, the recessionary crisis would become obvious to the general public. Trump, and all conservatives, would be blamed for the resulting disaster that the banking elites engineered. Read More

As an illustration of the enormous harm that is done to humanity by conceited men and women who think they own the Truth, I present to you the case of Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis.
In 1847, Dr. Semmelweis worked in the Vienna Hospital for women about to give birth. The Hospital's death rate for women in childbirth, caused by puerperal fever, was horrendous - so terrible that many women opted for giving birth at home, with a midwife, rather than facing the prospect of death at the Clinic where Dr. Semmelweis practiced.

Fifty-six years after the murder of President Kennedy, the US government still refuses to release the documents that would prove what really happened. Read More

The 18th anniversary of 9/11 is over, but 9/11 isn’t. September 11, 2001, is the defining event of America’s 21st century. The neoconservatives used their false flag event to destroy the Bill of Rights and turn the American people over to a police state, and they used the New Pearl Harbor that they orchestrated to launch their wars of aggression in the Middle East for the purpose of reconstructing the Middle East in Israel’s interest. The new American police state will become more oppressive as time goes by, and now that Israel has the bit in its teeth the United States will likely be forced into a war that will result in nuclear Armageddon.

For seven long, agonizing hours on CNN, last Wednesday night, 10 of the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates went round and round on who could out do each other on how much taxpayer money they were going to spend to reduce the threat of the alleged crisis of man-caused global warming, euphemistically and deceitfully called “Climate Change.” (Of course climate changes.) Good OLD socialist, one-foot-in-the-grave Bernie Sanders topped the list with proposing to spend $16 trillion American taxpayer dollars to solve a climate variability that could very well and in all likelihood, either be a natural phenomenon, or defy a solution.

We continue to get more numbers that indicate that U.S. economic activity is really starting to slow down. According to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, the number of layoffs in the United States was 38 percent higher in August than it was in July. A 38 percent increase in one month is more than just a little bit startling, and many believe that if this momentum continues we could soon be facing an avalanche of job losses similar to what we witnessed in 2008. And without a doubt, all of the other economic numbers that have been rolling in lately also confirm that the U.S. economy is heading into harder times. But is our country ready to handle another major economic downturn? Read More

09.04.19- Is the U.S. Government the Enemy of the People? America’s Lost Liberties, Post-9/11
The US Constitution never granted the federal government authority to create a central bank. The Founders, having lived through hyperinflation themselves, understood that government should never have a printing press at its disposal. But from the very beginning of America’s founding, the desire for a crony central bank was strong.
In fact, two attempts were made at creating a permanent central bank in America prior to the creation of the Fed. Fortunately, the charter for The First Bank was allowed to expire in 1811, and President Andrew Jackson closed down the Second Bank in 1833. Read More

I cannot believe where our nation now stands at eighteen years in the aftermath of September 11th 2001. Never in my wildest flight of imagination did I ever think I would see our nation so ready to accept and embrace such evil as Islam holds, as the ignorant madding masses continue to preach the glory and wonders of “coexist”, “Chrislam” and the damnable LIE that Islam is “a religion of peace“.
Although this piece isn’t an analysis of Islam or America’s interaction with Islam and Muslims, it does reveal a certain weakness in the psyche of the United States population, when we have not seemed to learn from history, and eighteen years after 9/11 Muslims are serving in Congress at the same moment Muslim terrorists are still being captured on our soil.

Out of liberty, then, stem the glories of civilized life.Murray Rothbard

It’s been a few days since I did anything but my news aggregator, and that’s not so strange, since so much of it ‘encircled’ Jeffrey Epstein. Now that he’s supposedly died, though we have no proof of that, from an ‘apparent suicide’, there are other topics as well that we can turn to.
But let’s start with Epstein just for good measure. We still don’t have an autopsy report, though New York City Chief Medical Examiner Barbara Sampson apparently performed one on Epstein on Sunday, which private pathologist Michael Baden “observed on behalf of Epstein’s representatives”. Read More

Red flag laws violate multiple rights protected by our constitution. The Hill has an excellent article on how red flag laws violate more than the 2nd Amendment, including: Read More
The term “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag is used as a ruse de guerre.
As the term is used in contemporary America, a false flag is an event that is contrived and manipulated by the authorities to achieve a covert agenda, e.g., gun control. The intended result is a “rallying around the flag” effect, wherein an inflamed “useful idiot” populace is mobilized to support the covert agenda. The public is given an untruthful version of the event by government and/or the media, whether it be about the perpetrator(s) and/or victim(s). That real people actually died or were injured doesn’t mean the event isn’t a false flag, so long as the event meets the two defining and necessary conditions for a false flag incident: Read More

You can bet that whenever you find people analyzing the root of a problem you will also find other people trying to derail those efforts with dishonest arguments. For reasons that we can guess at but are rarely able to confirm, there are some folks out there that get rather agitated at constructive discussion among their fellow humans. One of the most common tactics for hijacking the discussion of a problem is to suggest that it is “all pointless” unless those same people can offer a grand solution to the problem.

What is the true story behind the so-called suicide of Jeffrey Epstein? Only three days ago, Bill and Hillary’s further and highly suspicious associations with Bill and Hillary Clinton have, again, come into the light of day. From the perspective of many of the globalists there was a lot to lose in permitting this to go forward. Epstein’s attorney asked for a year’s delay so he could prepare a million pages of evidence. This was clearly a leverage ploy that Epstein was sending a message that he was going to take many household names down with him as possible if his demands were not met. He had to go. However, I am 100% certain that Epstein is not dead. How can I be so certain? Because I have been down this road before, both with Ken Lay, have and later I had my own situation with something called a dead man switch. Read More

08.08.19- High Octane on Fires and
Monday I blogged about France’s announcement to weaponize space with laser-carrying satellites, ostensibly for the purpose of giving France an independent space defense capability for their space-based assets. I also speculated that one might envision these “lasers” to be far more powerful than the standard optical frequency lasers that the term itself (lasers I mean), conjurs in the popular mind, and might be something capable of offensive use, such as x-ray or gamma ray lasers (or so called grasers). Such powerful weapons could conceivably be deployed against ground targets in any number of ways; we’ll get back to that, because there was a little “method” in my madness yesterday when I posted the blog about the French story.

Modern monetary theory is not so theoretical anymore.

The Bourgeois Gentleman is the Molière play in which a character comes to the proud realization that he has been speaking prose all his life without even knowing it.
