12.03.16- The Shocking Truth About How Barack Obama Was Able To Prop Up The U.S. Economy
Michael Snyder

Barack Obama is one of the biggest “Keynesians” of all time, but unfortunately most Americans don’t even understand what that means. In this article, I am going to share with you the primary reason why Barack Obama has been able to prop up the U.S. economy over the past eight years. If Barack Obama had not taken the extreme measures that he did, we would be in the midst of a historic economic depression right now. But by propping things up in the short-term, he has absolutely demolished our long-term economic future. But like most politicians, Obama has been willing to sacrifice the future for short-term political gain. Read More

12.02.16- The Real Reasons Why Another American Civil War Is Possible
Brandon Smith

You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke!

I would point out, however, that this seemingly boundless drive to forsake all logic and reason in the name of ideology is not due to these people being special in their ambition. Rather, they are following a somewhat successful historic model; the model of communism. And by successful, I mean successfully destructive. Read More

11.30.16- 35 Things the Ruling Cabal Does Not Want You to Know
Preston James

For almost 100 years there has been a Secret Ruling Cabal of Banksters and Industrialists from the City of London Financial District that has been running the USG and setting the policies of America which are based on Big Lies and Major Deceptions.

This cabal has spent many billions of hard earned American dollars which they have confiscated through a crooked tax system to pay “talking-head” major mass media “newscasters” to limit what you can know and to make sure almost everything the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM) is lies and dispensed propaganda, which helps keep this super-elite deviant Ruling Cabal in power and keeps important truths from the public.

11.29.16- Turkey Has Declared War On Syria – Does This Mean That World War 3 Is About To Erupt In The Middle East?
Michael Snyder

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has just announced that the only reason Turkish military forces have entered northern Syria is to “end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad”.  By publicly proclaiming that Turkey intends to use military force to overthrow the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Erdogan has essentially declared war on the Syrian government.  Of course this puts a member of NATO in direct military conflict with Russia, since Russia is working very hard to prop up the Assad regime.  If all-out war breaks out between Turkey and Russia, could that be the spark that causes World War 3 to erupt in the Middle East?

11.28.16- Who’s behind the war on cash?
Bob Livingston

It’s the usual suspects

There is little more destructive to the health, wealth, happiness, well-being and liberty of the populace than when the government makes policy to make its citizens’ lives better, protect them from crime, make their children safe or help them preserve their wealth.

Case in point: Last week, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi suddenly banned its largest bank notes —  500 and 1,000 rupee notes (500 rupees equals $7.50) — declaring that they would cease to be legal tender at year end and requiring them to be deposited in banks by that time. This has thrown the nation into turmoil. Read More

11.27.16- Prison or the Presidency? Hillary’s Going for Broke
Dave Hodges

On November 9th, in the early morning hours, I reported that Donald Trump had made a deal with the devil and had agreed to not prosecute Hillary Clinton. When Trump clinched Pennsylvania, it was clear that Clinton could not win, as the story goes, Podesta, “the Pizza man”, reached out to Trump’s Senior Advisor, Kellyanne Conway, and offered to not contest the close results in exchange for a promise to not prosecute Clinton. While the offer was being mulled over by the Trump insiders, Podesta delivered what was thought to be a concession speech to the nation. Yet, Hillary was nowhere to be found and it was anything but a concession speech. In fact, Podesta said, no decision had been made.. and we could be counting votes for a very long time….” Shortly after that speech, Trump agreed to not prosecute and Clinton agreed to concede the next day.

Uniquely Talented: Only the Democrats Could Have Lost to Trump

A great uproar goes forth from the enemies of the Trump Beast, with much gnashing of hair and pulling of teeth. He will be a terrible President, they say, and they may well be right. There are ominous signs, particularly as regards foreign policy, and he seems radically incoherent and contradictory. Interestingly, his critics have no slight idea why he won.  The reason is obvious: He won because everybody was campaigning for him, in particular, the media, Hillary, Black Lives Matter, Obama, Democrats, and far leftists. Everybody worked for Trump. He couldn’t lose. Read More

11.25.16- This Is Where I Get Off
Jeff Thomas

We began writing on the War on Cash some time ago, when it was still just a theoretical ploy that we believed banks and governments were likely to employ as their economic adventurism continued to unravel.

But, in the last year, several countries have, as a part of the War on Cash, begun removing larger bank notes from circulation in order to force people to perform all economic transactions through the banking system, assuring that the banks would gain total control over the movement of money.

Of course, the banks could not admit their true goal to the public. They instead used the governments to claim that the measure was being undertaken to restrict crime (money laundering, drug deals, black marketing, terrorism, etc.) Read More

11.24.16- What if the Government Is Not Worth Thanking?

What if the election was decided not on issues but on emotions? What if most people who voted for president chose the candidate they hated less? What if people talked more about videotapes, emails, private behavior and public deception than they did about issues that arise under the Constitution? What if the videotapes and the emails aroused feelings of disgust that motivated millions of voters to make choices? What if those emotional choices led them to Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton?

11.23.16- The View From Under The Bus
Adam Taggart

As the dust settles from the recent presidential election, it's becoming clear that a large part of the sentiment behind the vote for Trump reflects a deep dissatisfaction from middle and lower-class working families. The traditional fruits of prosperity have been rising higher and farther out of reach for them, as their ability to make a living wage has been eroding year-over-year, for decades.

They've now reached the point where they no longer trust the empty promises that have been sold them by a steady stream of politicians -- on both side of the aisle -- who have lined their own pockets with lobbyist money while overseeing a tremendous shift of society's wealth to crony corporations and the top 1%.

Andrew Hoffman

Care of WikiLeaks, Anonymous, Project Veritas, and countless other whistleblowers in the modern age of hacking and global information dissemination, the world is on a rapid “learning curve” of the public and private criminality that has occurred for decades – and how they can make a difference by exposing it.  Without a doubt, Hillary Clinton would have been President if not for the tireless efforts of, for lack of a better description, “good guys” who, from myriad facets of life, took it upon themselves to prevent perhaps the most dangerous, sociopathic “politician” in U.S. history from taking office.

11.21.16- Are We Beginning a Fourth Turning?
Soren Kierkegaard

“History offers even more sobering warnings: Armed confrontation usually occurs around the climax of Crisis. If there is confrontation, it is likely to lead to war. This could be any kind of war – class war, sectional war, war against global anarchists or terrorists.” The Fourth Turning – Strauss & Howe -1997

As we enter the final stretch of this vitriolic, deplorable, venomous, propaganda saturated, deceitful, rigged presidential election spectacle, it becomes painfully obvious this Fourth Turning is careening toward bloodshed, bedlam, confrontation, and civil war. The linear fixated establishment, who fancy themselves intellectually superior to the irredemables, are too blinded by their sociopathic, increasingly audacious subversion of the Constitution, to grasp the level of rage and disillusionment of a white working class that has been screwed over for decades.

On August 30, my Natural News article entitled Chaos will erupt across America in less than 100 days... no matter who wins the election, I wrote these words which were widely ridiculed at the time but are now obviously true:

The day after the election results show Trump to be the clear winner, radical leftists break out into mass protests across America. But Obama is still in power at this point, and Trump won't actually occupy the White House until early 2017. So for the remainder of 2016. Read More

11.18.16- The War on Cash Just Escalated
Jim Rickards

I’ve been warning investors for months about the war on cash.

This war has been in full swing in Europe and the U.S. for a long time. Governments plan to use negative interest rates, confiscatory taxes and other techniques to rob savers of their wealth. In order to do this, they have to force savings into digital accounts at large government-controlled banks.

As long as savers can hold cash, they can avoid many of these confiscation techniques. Therefore, governments must eliminate cash. Read More

11.15.16- Popular Vote Reality Check
Jim Quinn

I’ve been listening to the leftwingnuts crying foul because Crooked Hillary won the popular vote. They evidently fell asleep during their American government class in high school. The reason there are two senators per state and an electoral college is to keep the large powerful states from wielding too much power in governing the nation.

It seems left wing nutjobs seem to be drawn together into 6 liberal enclaves. You may notice the professional violent Soros protestors do their best work in these states. Republican voters in these states know their vote is worthless, because there are far too many irrational, mathematically challenged snowflakes to overcome. So, many don’t even bother to vote.

After Trump & Brexit, populist tsunami threatens European mainstream …  Back in May, when Donald’s Trump’s victory in the U.S. presidential election seemed the remotest of possibilities, a senior European official took to Twitter before a G7 summit in Tokyo to warn of a “horror scenario”.  Imagine, mused the official, if instead of Barack Obama, Francois Hollande, David Cameron and Matteo Renzi, next year’s meeting of the club of rich nations included Trump, Marine Le Pen, Boris Johnson and Beppe Grillo.  -Reuters

11.10.16- The Working Class Won The Election
Paul Craig Roberts

The US presidential election is historic, because the American people were able to defeat the oligarchs.  Hillary Clinton, an agent for the Oligarchy, was defeated despite the vicious media campaign against Donald Trump.  This shows that the media and the political establishments of the political parties no longer have credibility with the American people.

It remains to be seen whether Trump can select and appoint a government that will serve him and his goals to restore American jobs and to establish friendly and respectful relations with Russia, China, Syria, and Iran. Read More

11.08.16- Dallas "Pension Fund Panic" As Mayor Warns Of 130% Property Tax Hike To Avoid Collapse
Tyler Durden

Over the past year, the biggest casualty to emerge as a result of global NIRP (or close to it) monetary policy have been pension funds, which have had two choices: either suffer losses as yields on new fixed income investments barely cover (and in some case don't), or scramble for duration (or outright risky investments like junk bonds and high beta stocks).

In August, we created the chart below as a simplistic illustration of the pension "duration dilemma."  The chart graphs how a pension liability grows in a declining interest rate environment versus the value of 5-year and 30-year treasury bonds. Read More

11.07.16- A Digital 9/11 If Trump Wins
Finian Cunningham

There are disturbing signs that a digital 9/11 false flag terror attack is being readied for election day in the US to ensure that Donald Trump does not win.

Such an attack – involving widespread internet and power outage – would have nothing to do with Russia or any other foreign state. It would be furnished by agencies of the US Deep State in a classic “false flag” covert manner. But the resulting chaos and “assault on American democracy” will be conveniently blamed on Russia.

That presents a double benefit. Russia would be further demonized as a foreign aggressor “justifying” even harsher counter measures by America and its European allies against Moscow. Read More

Despite the arrogance, hubris, and lying (obviously – its election season!), we have never seen a cycle that has be more absent in terms of policy details worthy of analysis. Outrageous claims about job creation, making America strong, and so forth are issued, but there is no substance. We have tried on numerous occasions to find enough specifics to even perform cursory analysis and it is just not there. It is very reminiscent of Nancy Pelosi telling America in 2010 that if they wanted to read the healthcare bill they had to pass it first. This is what passes for economic jurisprudence in the Republic the founders gave us all those years ago. Read More

11.03.16- Election fraud: beware of early network projections next Tuesday
Jon Rappoport

Bev Harris’ revelations about election fraud are exploding across the Web. At blackboxvoting.org, she has exposed GEMS, a vote-tabulating system used in 25% of the US vote. Intentional back doors are installed in GEMS, allowing manipulation on a massive scale.

But keep in mind that major news networks always make their projections of the winners on election night. This is another vector for gross fraud. The projections are estimates. But once they are announced, the game is over in most cases. In other words, declaring the winner is a media event, owned and operated by the networks. (See also here and here) Read More

On Friday, FBI Director James Comey announced that his agency has discovered new emails related to Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information that they had not previously seen. According to the Associated Press, the newly discovered emails “did not come from her private server”, but instead were found when the FBI started going through electronic devices that belonged to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Weiner.

This is wrong for a number of reasons but the biggie is, a family is supposed to be a cohesive unit. He can’t have his better half canceling out his vote. Even if a husband wants to vote badly—say, for Hillary—his wife should stand by her man and make the same mistake.

From my long experience in journalism, I know the American public is not very sharp. Nevertheless, it is difficult for me to believe that Americans, whose jobs, careers, and the same for their children and grandchildren, have been sold out by the elites who Hillary represents would actually vote for her. It makes no sense. If this were the case, how did Trump get the Republican nomination despite the vicious presstitute campaign against him? Read More

Muammar Gaddafi was the most progressive political leader in the world. Gaddafi used Libya’s oil wealth for the benefit of the Libyan people. He lived in a tent, a nice tent, but not in a palace, and he did not have collections of European exotic cars or any of the other paraphernalia associated with the ruling families in Saudi Arabia and the oil emirates that are Washington’s Middle Eastern allies.

The fact is, US unpredictability and aggression keep growing, and such threats against Moscow and our country’s leadership are unprecedented, because the threat is being announced at the level of the US Vice President,” Peskov told RIA Novosti cited by AFP. Read More

One of the benefits of running a blog for the last seven years has been interacting with so many smart people. During these daily interactions I am introduced to new ideas, different points of view, and become acquainted with a plethora of great thinkers. When I was younger, before kids, long commutes, running a blog and being beaten down by life, I was a voracious reader. My regular commenters direct me towards writers and books I wish I had read in my twenties rather than my fifties.

But I guess it is never too late to learn something new. I’ve now read the first two of the four books I bought myself at Christmas: The Law by Frederic Bastiat; Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt; The Road to Serfdom by F.A. Hayek; and Tragedy & Hope by Carroll Quigley. Read More

All-in-all, just the hypothetical mention of “tapering” speaks to the extent of speculative positioning in the periphery govies, with the seemingly lazy 3-day move lower in IKA (Italian BTP futures) actually being a 2.1 standard deviation event (against the returns of the past year). To my points made for years now on risk-parity, risk-control / vol-targeting and leveraged ETPs, it’s the cost of “shadow short convexity” in the market place (as the strategies increase or decreaser” smashes asset prices with stiff jolts of volatility “true-ups”.

In contrast to dire predictions of chaos, everything is proceeding smoothly and some Spaniards are learning a valuable lesson about the resilience of society when left to its own (voluntary) devices.

10.03.16- Gold And Silver – Qrtly, Monthly Charts. Last Weekly Commentary.
Michael Noonan

This will be our last weekly commentary on the markets. What we know for certain is that the globalists have a stranglehold on the markets, and more importantly, a stranglehold on all Western nations to the point where life has become a theater of the absurd, negatively and without an end in sight.

We have been leaning in this direction for some time. Time off at the end of August, when access to a computer and news was limited to an hour a day, and we chose to use only a small portion of the allotted time, drove home the point, or more appropriately the pointlessness of what is going on all around the world.

09.30.16- A Conspiracy Theory About Conspiracy Theories
Paul Rosenberg

One of the funny things about conspiracy theories, including false flag attacks, is how often they are proven to be true. You have to wonder how long the shame-inducing slam, “That’s a conspiracy theory,” will keep working.

But that’s not my point for today. Today, I want to introduce a conspiracy theory of my own, a conspiracy theory about conspiracy theories. Here it is:

The powers that be – the elite, the deep state, whomever – want wild conspiracy theories to spread. Because after these wild theories set the “outrage meter” very high, they can get away with almost anything below that line. Read More

09.29.16- How The ‘Deplorables’
Can Save America

Brandon Smith

In my last article, “The Deplorables – Who We Are And What We Want,” I examined the basic philosophies that define what I call the liberty movement; the same group of Americans that Hillary Clinton admonishes as part of her “basket of deplorables.”

It is important to recognize that only foolish progressives actually take Clinton’s claims at face value. Clinton seeks to characterize a large subset of conservatives as narrow minded when she mentions the “deplorables.” But, it is how she defines “narrow minded” that is the crux of the thing.

09.28.16- Only Days Until World
Money Changes Forever

James G. Rickards

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has established a plan for its special drawing rights (SDR) valuation basket to be revised at midnight on September 30. This IMF plan has laid the foundations for a new monetary standard based on world money.

While these SDR plans might seem complex, they’re actually not complicated. People will make it complicated or make it sound confusing but the Federal Reserve has a printing press, they can print dollars. The IMF also has a printing press and can print SDRs. It’s just world money that could be handed out and could be used to cause inflation. Read More

09.27.16- Political Succession and “The Bush-Clinton Nexus”: Permanent Criminal State,
“A Clinton White House Guarantees War with Russia”

Larry Chin

At a spring 2016 Republican debate attended by the Bushes, George H.W. “Poppy” Bush, looked directly at Donald Trump and gave him the “throat slit” gesture. The Bushes want the Clintons back in the White House.

“Poppy” trusted them with Arkansas in the 1980s, and with the White House in the 1990s, and he can trust them with the marching orders again. A Hillary Clinton presidency guarantees that all the things that the New World Order wants done will continue to get done. Read More

Johnny Silver Bear

It is high time We the People see the military and economic hegemony in the Middle East for the farce that it is, and start developing alternative solutions to the unsustainable system of the Petrodollar, and we had better do it soon.

I have been searching for answers regarding the continuing degradation of our economy since the stockmarket crash of 2000. Realizing that there was a lot more to the financial markets than met the eye, I started diligently studying the flow of money throughout the world. My research has uncovered much more than simple malfeasance. An orchestrated conspiracy has emerged and the consequences have become more apparent, day by day. I could have never embarked on this fact finding mission without the aid if the internet. I have become somewhat obsessed with finding out who, what, where, and when. Read More

09.23.16- The Most Profitable War In U.S. History
Bill Bonner

OUZILLY, France – “In the short run,” says billionaire investor Warren Buffett, “the stock market is a voting machine. In the long run, it’s a weighing machine.” Put another way, in the short run, the stock market responds to myths and fads. In the long run, these give way to facts.

The Wilshire Total Market Index (red line) vs. GDP (black line), indexed (1990 = 100). Maybe the stock market is actually mainly a gauge of monetary inflation. As an aside: Warren Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway reportedly holds more than $72 billion in cash at the moment. Apparently Buffett expects the market to soon make another transitions from the voting to the weighing phase. Read More

09.22.16- America, the Helpless ‘Superpower’
Justin Raimondo

The year was 1955, the dawn of the cold war, and an old prophet was writing what would be his last book. It was a volume of history – The American Story, he called it – in which he reviewed the cavalcade of twists and turns that had brought us to that moment when we stood “at the top of the world, “ as he put it. There was no terrorist threat back then – not counting the threat of global annihilation that hung over us during those years of “duck and cover” and backyard bomb shelters. Yet Garet Garrett – a former editor of the New York Times and the Saturday Evening Post, an Old Right “isolationist” who lived in exile on a New Jersey farm – foresaw our present age, and what we would become: Read More

09.21.16- Will Russia Surrender?
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

The Russian government’s sincere and diligent effort to prevent chaos in Syria and additional massive refugee flow into Europe, all the while avoiding conflict with Washington and its vassals, has been brought to an end by Washington’s intentional attack on a known Syrian army position, thus wrecking the cease fire agreement that Russia sacrificed so much to achieve.

The response to this fact by the Obama regime’s ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, reveals that Washington will lie to the hilt in order to achieve its agenda of reducing Syria to the same chaos as Washington has reduced Iraq and Libya. Washington, and Washington alone, is responsible for the war in Syria. Read More

The globalist’s presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, is flailing in her bid to become the next Puppet In Chief. There are mounting terrorist acts throughout Europe, now that Soros has led the way for Muslim “immigrants” to flood into Europe placing economic strains within each country, but more importantly, killings, raping of women and young children, violence and fights.

The goal is to rid Europe of it sovereign borders, break down and destroy national identities and move closer to the New World Order where individualism and freedom are non-existent, where only the State controls everything. Read More

09.19.16- Something Wicked This Way Comes
Karen Kwiatkowski, Ph.D.

Watching the unveiling of the next political era in the United States has been satisfying on many levels. It is especially nice to see large numbers of deplorables standing up for their bad selves, and watching the political class recoil and faint.

When it was a “close” race, which is to say, a hackable one, delivering the expected status quo government, it was interesting to watch and assess. A close race (post-Republican primaries) through a mainstream media lens is one where Hillary is the predicted winner, but things close up a bit as we approach election day, and she is still the winner. After all, she has all that government experience. It’s what plants crave, as the common wisdom of our time holds. Read More

Charles Hugh Smith

The MSM has forsaken its duty in a democracy and is a disgrace to investigative, unbiased journalism.

The mainstream media bet the farm on Hillary Clinton, confident that their dismissal of every skeptical inquiry as a "conspiracy" would guarantee her victory. It now appears they have lost their bet. Let's do something radical and be honest for a moment: the mainstream media has smoothed the path to Hillary's coronation in countless often subtle ways. Read More

09.10.16- Weekend Rant: : Vote All You Want, the Secret Government Won’t Change
Carey Wedler

Former congressman Ron Paul is outspoken. When he retired from Congress, he called lawmakers psychopathic authoritarians to their faces. He’s also called Donald Trump an authoritarian and asserted Hillary Clinton could have run as a Republican. And just last week, Paul took aim at the foundational structure of American ‘democracy.’

In a recent episode of his web show, the Liberty Report, Ron Paul discussed the Department of Homeland Security’s decision last month to take a more active role in U.S. elections. Secretary Jeh Johnson said he was “considering whether elections should be classified as ‘critical infrastructure,’ affording them the same kinds of enhanced protections that the banking system and the electrical grid receive.” Read More

09.08.16- Clinton Versus Trump And The Co-Option Of The Liberty Movement
Brandon Smith

Most of my readers are well aware of my position on U.S. elections in general – they are an eternal farce meant to give false hope to the masses. They are designed to make the public feel as if we are participating in our own governance, when in reality, we are only ever allowed to choose from a list of candidates that the elites pre-select. This does not mean that all politicians are corrupted or controlled, but according to the evidence I have seen, the majority of government represents the desires of a select few, and not the majority of the citizenry.

There is absolutely no chance of retaking our current government by working within the system. To be blunt, the system is now structured to protect itself and nothing else. Read More

Mike Whitney

The Pledge of Allegiance is not an expression of patriotism. It is a loyalty oath that one normally associates with totalitarian regimes. People who love freedom, should be appalled by the idea our children are being coerced to stand and declare their support for the state. This is the worst form of indoctrination and it is completely anathema to the principals articulated in the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I cannot imagine outspoken libertarians like Thomas Jefferson or Tom Paine ever proclaiming their loyalty to the state when they correctly saw the state as the greatest threat to individual freedom. Which it is. Read More

John W. Whitehead

“Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves.” ― Herbert Marcuse

The FBI is worried: foreign hackers have broken into two state election databases.

The Department of Homeland Security is worried: the nation’s voting system needs greater protection against cyberattacks.

I, on the other hand, am not overly worried: after all, the voting booths have already been hacked by a political elite comprised of Republicans and Democrats who are determined to retain power at all costs. Read More

09.03.16- The Alternative to Presidential Politics
Thomas DiLorenzo

In his new book Nullification: Reclaiming Consent of the Governed, Clyde Wilson pinpoints the folly and futility of “presidential politics” – of hoping against hope that some Great Savior will somehow restore American liberty. Only those who are almost completely ignorant of American history could be fooled by such a farce. Unfortunately, that seems to include most Americans.

Early Americans were never so naïve as to believe that national politicians could preserve their freedom; that was their job. They are the ones who, acting through their state-level political societies, created and gave authority to the Constitution. The government was to act as their agent and was delegated by them only a few specific powers. Moreover, the government itself could never be the judge of its own powers, for that would lead to “nothing less than a government of unlimited power, a tyranny,” writes Wilson. Read More

"There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil." - Ayn Rand

If you are reading this, you have, most probably, felt occasionally frustrated by your inability to communicate your feelings concerning the attacks on our personal liberties, to members of your family and/or friends who refuse to "get it". In order to quell my frustration, I have to continually remind myself that most members of our society have been "psychologically conditioned, mentally constrained and dumbed down" by a system that was designed expressly for that purpose. We are basically aware of the abject failure of the Public School Systems to adequately educate our children. The quality of American public schools has been eroding continuously since the creation of the abomination known as the United States Department of Education which was signed into law by President Jimmy Carter on October 17, 1979. This act, by Carter, was blatantly unConstitutional. Read More

08.29.16- America’s 'Libido Dominandi’ Problem
Thomas DiLorenzo

Every society has a segment of its population that obsesses over totalitarian control of others. They are called “politicians” or “political activists.” (There are one or two exceptions, every now and then, such as former Congressman Ron Paul). These are people who just cannot stand the fact that many others prefer to live their own lives, abiding by the basic laws protecting life, liberty and property, and the moral codes that help to enforce such behavior. They just cannot stand the fact that so many others prefer to plan their own lives instead of having the political authorities plan their lives for them. They are often more than willing to use the coercive forces of government – including deadly force, including war – to get their way. They think of themselves as Our Superiors, God’s chosen people, or just plain smarter and more moral than everyone else. Read More

Everyone who isn't being paid to deny the obvious in public (while fuming helplessly about the phony cheerleading in private) knows that our society is a layer-cake of pathologies, our economy little more than institutionalized racketeering and our politics a corrupt auction-house of pay-for-play, influence-peddling, money-grubbing and brazen pandering for votes.

As you will see below, even the Federal Reserve is admitting this. The Obama administration also promised that the big health insurance companies would love the new Obamacare plans and would eagerly compete with one another to win customers in the new health insurance marketplaces. Instead, many of the big health insurance companies are now dropping Obamacare plans altogether. Read More

Moreover, I do not know if it is true that Moscow warned the President of Turkey of the coup, and I do not know if Washington was behind the coup. Therefore, I do not know how to weigh the scales. As I see it, whether Turkey stays with Washington or realigns with Moscow depends first of all on whether or not Moscow warned Turkey and whether or not Washington was behind the coup. Read More

In his remarks, Hoenig stated that “while the largest U.S. banks have increased capital since the [2008] crisis, their capital is still lower than the industry average and inadequate for bank resiliency.

08.12.16- Globalization Is Dead,
But The Idea Is Not

Raúl Ilargi Meijer

We can, every single one of us, agree that we’re either in or just past a -financial- crisis. But that seems to be all we can agree on. Because some call it the GFC, others a recession, and still others a depression. And some insist on seeing it as ‘in the past’, and solved, while others see it as a continuing issue.

I personally have the idea that if you think central banks -and perhaps governments- have the ability and the tools to prevent or cure financial crises, you’re in the more optimistic camp. And if you don’t, you’re a pessimist. A third option might be to think that no matter what central bankers do, things will solve themselves, but I don’t see much of that being floated. Not anymore.

Give us your urine

Every day in the news business is a fake day.

Headlines and articles smear lies, cover stories, distractions, diversions, and phony parroting across the landscape. And headlines that would reveal important truth are omitted.

The gullible buy in and submit themselves to prime-A mind control.

Here are three current stories I have covered in detail already: Read More

08.02.16- America Destroyed
Paul Craig Roberts

When I was young, America still existed. No more. Not even the blather from the 4th of July can hide the obvious fact.

The young do not know that they have lost their country because they are born into a time when the country is lost. To them that is normalcy.

Besides, the young are too busy texting and describing themselves, often intimately, on social media to be aware of the fate that awaits them, lost as they are in their insouciance.Read More

08.01.16- Stop Drinking the Kool-Aid, America:
Political Fiction in an Age of Televised Lies

John W. Whitehead

“We’ve got to face it. Politics have entered a new stage, the television stage. Instead of long-winded public debates, the people want capsule slogans—‘Time for a change’—‘The mess in Washington’—‘More bang for a buck’—punch lines and glamour.”— A Face in the Crowd (1957)

It is a heavily scripted, tightly choreographed, star-studded, ratings-driven, mass-marketed, costly exercise in how to sell a product—in this case, a presidential candidate—to dazzled consumers who will choose image over substance almost every time. Read More

07.30.16- The Burrito Index: Consumer Prices Have Soared 160% Since 2001
Charles Hugh Smith

Calculating the real inflation rate

In our household, we measure inflation with the "Burrito Index": How much has the cost of a regular burrito at our favorite taco truck gone up?

Since we keep detailed records of expenses (a necessity if you’re a self-employed free-lance writer), I can track the real-world inflation of the Burrito Index with great accuracy: the cost of a regular burrito from our local taco truck has gone up from $2.50 in 2001 to $5 in 2010 to $6.50 in 2016.

07.29.16- Bye Bye Middle Class: The Rate Of Homeownership In The United States Has Hit The Lowest Level Ever
Michael Snyder

The percentage of Americans that own a home has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded. During the second quarter of 2016, the non-seasonally adjusted homeownership rate fell to just 62.9 percent, which was exactly where it was at when the U.S. Census began publishing this measurement back in 1965. This is not what a “recovery” looks like. All throughout the Obama years, the percentage of Americans that own a home has gotten smaller and smaller and smaller. The reason for this, of course, is that the middle class in America is dying. Last year, we learned that middle class Americans now make up a minority of the population for the first time ever.

07.28.16- New legislation proposes to “bail in” Social Security
Simon Black

It was only a few weeks ago that I told you about the government’s annual report on Social Security.

It was a veritable death sentence for the program.

The Board of Trustees for Social Security (which includes the US Treasury Secretary) wrote that major parts of the program have already run out of money, and the rest of Social Security will run out of money in the next decade.

Amazing. Even Social Security knows that they’re bankrupt and unable to keep their promises to taxpayers. Read More

07.27.16- Will Putin Get a Pulitzer?
Patrick J. Buchanan

Waving off the clerics who had come to administer last rites, Voltaire said:

“All my life I have ever made but one prayer to God, a very short one: ‘O Lord, make my enemies look ridiculous.’ And God granted it.”

The tale of the thieved emails at the Democratic National Committee is just too good to be true.

For a year, 74-year-old Socialist Bernie Sanders has been saying that, under DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the party has been undercutting his campaign and hauling water for Hillary Clinton. Read More

07.26.16- Made in the USA – Vitriol and Over-the-Top Fanaticism
Bill Bonner

DUBLIN – Dublin is a delightful city. But it is backward. It was warm last night. From the vent, no Arctic air issued at gale force. So, we did something retrograde… something that you can’t do in most U.S. business hotels: We opened the window.

In through the window drifted a soft, cool breeze from St. Stephen’s Green. But we couldn’t sleep. Some people like the comforting sound of church bells ringing in the wee hours. Others wilt into sleep by their grandmothers’ bedtime lullabies. Read More

07.25.16- ....Meanwhile, All Hell Has Broken Loose In The South China Sea
James Corbett

The failed Turkish coup. The Nice attack. The RNC and DNC. There is no shortage of headline-grabbing news stories to keep you occupied during this summer of rage.

But while your attention is elsewhere, huge moves are afoot in the Asia-Pacific. Specifically, those moves are afoot in the South China Sea, where the Permanent Court of Arbitration handed down a long-awaited ruling last week in favor of the Philippines in their long-running dispute over territorial waters with China.

07.23.16- Armageddon Approaches
Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

The Western public doesn’t know it, but Washington and its European vassals are convincing Russia that they are preparing to attack. Eric Zuesse reports on a German newspaper leak of a Bundeswehr decision to declare Russia to be an enemy nation of Germany. This is the interpretation that some Russian politicians themselves have put on the NATO military bases that Washington is establishing on Russia’s borders. Read More

07.22.16- How the “Faux Dollar” Destroyed Capitalism
Bill Bonner

BALTIMORE – when we left you yesterday, we were carrying out exploratory surgery on the Frankenstein-like modern money system. Here is where the going gets tough. So many ugly organs… so much revolting internal plumbing. But let us cut to the heart – pull it out – and have a closer look.

One heart, freshly pulled out. Mola Ram at your service!

At the heart of any economy is money. Money is the measuring stick. It tells us what things are worth, how much we can afford to invest, what is worth doing and what is not. Read More

07.21.16- WARNING: “Black Swan” Spotted
Brian Maher

God doesn’t play dice with the universe, Einstein famously opined. But does He play dice with the stock market?

It’s Monday, Oct. 19, 1987 — “Black Monday.” The stock market plunged a nightmare 22.6%, its largest one-day drop in history.

And by all that’s holy, it never should have happened. No, not just in the sense that regulators were snoozing at their desks or some gasket blew from poor maintenance. It literally… never should have happened.

It was almost statistically impossible. Read More

07.20.16- The Unique Evil of the Left
Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr.

Is it too much to say that since the French Revolution, the left has been the source of virtually all political evils, and continues to be so in our day?

There can be no doubt that great cruelty and violence can be and have been inflicted in the name of preserving the existing order.

But when we compare even the worst enormities of the more distant past with the leftist totalitarian revolutions and total wars of the twentieth centuries, they are in general a mere blip. The entire history of the Inquisition, said Joe Sobran, barely rises to the level of what the communists accomplished on a good afternoon. Read More

07.19.16- Nice Brings To Mind Operation Gladio
Paul Craig Roberts

Commentators who have learned to distrust official explanations, such as Peter Koenig and Stephen Lendman have raised questions about the Nice attack.

It does seem odd that a lone person driving a large truck can gain access to blocked off areas where French people have assembled to watch the fireworks of Bastille Day. It also seems odd that the event is branded a terrorist one when the alleged perpetrator’s family says that he was not at all religious and had no religious motivation.

We will never know. Once again the alleged perpetrator is dead and conveniently left behind his ID. Read More

07.18.16- USDA and Agribusiness Cartel Plot to Destroy a Small Business
Joseph T. Salerno

A bipartisan bill was just introduced by Senators Cory Booker (D, NJ) and Mike Lee (R, UT) aimed at preventing federal programs that were established to promote sales of agricultural products from being illegally used to attack competitors and influence public policy. The Commodity Checkoff Program Improvement Act of 2016 is a reaction to the discovery last year of an egregious conspiracy between the American Egg Board and a U.S. Department of Agriculture official to destroy a small company producing an eggless vegan mayonnaise.

07.15.16- War Is Coming And The Global Financial Situation Is A Lot Worse Than You May Think
Michael Snyder

On the surface, things seem pretty quiet in mid-July 2016. The biggest news stories are about the speculation surrounding Donald Trump’s choice of running mate, the stock market in the U.S. keeps setting new all-time record highs, and the media seems completely obsessed with Taylor Swift’s love life. But underneath the surface, it is a very different story. As you will see below, the conditions for a “perfect storm” are coming together very rapidly, and the rest of 2016 promises to be much more chaotic than what we have seen so far. Read More

07.14.16- Don’t Just Blame the Cops: Who Is Responsible for America’s Killing Fields?
John W. Whitehead

“I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today: my own government. For the sake of those boys, for the sake of this government, for the sake of the hundreds of thousands trembling under our violence, I cannot be silent.”—Martin Luther King Jr.

The latest shootings—in Texas, Minnesota, Louisiana, Illinois, New York, Missouri and every other state in the nation—are symptomatic of a psychotic outbreak by a nation that has been waging a war against its own citizens for too long. Read More

07.13.16- China Orders Militar to "Prepare for Combat (with United States) Over Hague Ruling on South China Sea

Chinese president Xi Jinping has ordered the People's Liberation Army to prepare for combat. This comes after an international tribunal on Tuesday issued an unfavorable ruling against China's claims over the South China Sea. U.S.-based Boxun News said Tuesday that the instruction was given in case the United States takes provocative action in the waters once the ruling is made.

The U.S. and China have been expanding their military activities across the sea, stoking heavy tension between the two superpowers. Read More

07.12.16- Fool's Errand: NATO Pledges Four More Years of War in Afghanistan
Dr. Ron Paul

(Editor's Note: In my humble opinion,U.S. troops are in Afghanistan to protect and control the poppy crop. The poppies are harvested and transported, via NATO military aircraft, to Turkey, where it is refined into herion and distributed worldwide. The profit from this criminal conspiracy provideds a significant portion of the "black budget". Although Dr. Paul sees the entanglment as "irrational", I see it as criminally evil. - JSB)

The longest war in US history just got even longer. As NATO wrapped up its 2016 Warsaw Summit, the organization agreed to continue funding Afghan security forces through the year 2020. Of course with all that funding comes US and NATO troops, and thousands of contractors, trainers, and more. Read More

07.11.16- The Race War has Begun
Jim Quinn

For all the linear thinking people out there, do you need any more proof of the cyclical nature of history than the last two weeks? Politicians being assassinated in Britain. Then the people of Britain shocking the world by telling the politicians, EU bureaucrats, and central bankers to fuck off. Markets in turmoil. Currencies in turmoil.

Then the rule of law is completely trashed by the FBI, DOJ and the rest of the corrupt establishment running this country. Hillary Clinton commits multiple crimes, lies under oath, and skates away free to become the next president of the United States. If ever rational thinking people needed more proof the system is rigged, they got it this week. The simmering anger among the hoi poloi is palpable. Read More

07.09.16- Are You Planning Your Retirement? Forget About It.
You Won’t Survive To Experience It.

Paul Craig Roberts

The Israeli agents who comprise the Neoconservatives, a collection of war criminals that control US foreign policy, have already handed you your death certificate. The neoconservatives have far more power than they have intelligence or humanity.

At the recent St. Petersburg International Economic Conference, President Putin excoriated Western Journalists for endlessly repeating Washington’s lies that are driving the world to nuclear war. He asked Washington’s bought-and-paid-for-whores, the scum who comprise the Western news media: “How do you not understand that the world is being pulled in an irreversible direction toward nuclear war?” Read More

07.07.16- America Has Become A Lawless Nation – Hillary Clinton Magically Cleared By The FBI
Michael Snyder

It is hard to be proud to be an American today after watching FBI director James Comey magically clear Hillary Clinton of all wrongdoing. Sadly, Comey is likely to go down in history as the man that struck the final death blow to the rule of law in America. During his address to the media, Comey admitted that Clinton sent or received 110 emails in 52 email chains that contained classified material at the time they were sent. But of course there were probably many more. Comey told the press that it was “likely that there are other work-related emails that they did not produce … that are now gone because they deleted all emails they did not return to State, and the lawyers cleaned their devices.” So basically Clinton turned over to the FBI whatever she felt like turning over, and then she destroyed the rest of the evidence. As a former lawyer, this infuriates me, but it doesn’t surprise me. Read More

07.06.16- New Tennessee Law Sets Stage To Reject International Gun Control
Mike Maharrey

Today, a new Tennessee law setting the foundation to stop enforcement of gun control imposed by international law or treaty goes into effect.

House Bill 2389 (HB2389) was introduced by Rep. John Windle (D-Livingston) in January. It prohibits law enforcement officers from enforcing provisions of international law and treaties that limit gun rights as specified in Article I, Section 26 of the Tennessee State Constitution. It reads, in part: Read More

07.05.16- Housing Affordability – A Dose of Reality
Ramsey Su

Restless Peasants

First, a few quick words on Brexit. Being the always positive and optimistic person that I am (big grin), I see one very positive outcome of Brexit – it is a revolution without bloodshed.

For once, I’m not digressing. Brexit has a lot of parallels with housing affordability in the US. Brexit is a clear illustration of how politicians, policy makers and the establishment have lost touch with the peasants, and the peasants are getting restless. Allow me to elaborate. Read More

07.04.16- Seceding from Socialism (Or, How to Really Make America Great Again)
Thomas DiLorenzo

In his great classic, Socialism, Ludwig von Mises observed that socialists always employed the dual strategy of 1) nationalizing as much industry and property as possible; and 2) “destructionism,” defined as “destroying the social order which is based on private ownership.” Destructionism can be achieved through the welfare state, progressive taxation, onerous taxation, and regulation and regimentation of private industry. It is a form of economic sabotage. Read More

07.02.16- Cannabis -Marijuana: The “War on Weed” Is Winding Down – But Will Monsanto/Bayer Be the Winner?
Ellen Brown

The war on cannabis that began in the 1930s seems to be coming to an end. Research shows that this natural plant, rather than posing a deadly danger to health, has a wide range of therapeutic benefits. But skeptics question the sudden push for legalization, which is largely funded by wealthy investors linked to Big Ag and Big Pharma.

In April, Pennsylvania became the 24th state to legalize medical cannabis, a form of the plant popularly known as marijuana. That makes nearly half of US states. A major barrier to broader legalization has been the federal law under which all cannabis – even the very useful form known as industrial hemp – is classed as a Schedule I controlled substance that cannot legally be grown in the US. Read More

07.01.16- The Collapse of Western Democracy
Paul Craig Roberts

Democracy no longer exists in the West. In the US powerful private interest groups, such as the military-security complex, Wall Street, the Israel Lobby, agribusiness and the extractive industries of energy, timber and mining, have long exercised more control over government than the people. But now even the semblance of democracy has been abandoned.

In the US Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential nomination. However, Republican convention delegates are plotting to deny Trump the nomination that the people have voted him. The Republican political establishment is showing an unwillingness to accept democratic outcomes.
The people chose, but their choice is unacceptable to the establishment which intends to substitute its choice for the people’s choice. Read More

06.30.16- Rotten to the Core
Robert Gore

Coercion is inseparable from corruption. When a group coerces with impunity, it steals from, lies to, defrauds, and enslaves the subjugated. The dominant group invariably develops a morally comforting ideology of its superiority and the subjugated’s inferiority. Such relationships are the essence of corruption.

Every square inch on the planet is subject to the jurisdiction of one or more coercive regimes, with their attendant corruption and fraud. Trillions of dollars, euros, pounds, and yen, et al., are extracted from the productive and diverted to governments, who buy political support. Read More

Dr. Jeffery Lewis

As fear trumps politics, the stampede will commence. 

Derivative defaults will spread, blotting out the financial landscape like a murder of crows. 

In a brief moment, precious metals prices will pass through their fundamental price equilibria on their way to unimagined levels, while re-asserting themselves as the ultimate value measuring sticks. 

In the acute aftermath of the United Kingdom’s vote to leave the European Union, we saw a figment of this ‘return to real money’ (ironically) via the mad rush to all things US dollar-denominated. Read More

James Howard Kunstler

Wait a minute. They’re already dead. Brexit just reveals that not everybody’s brains have been eaten. A viral contagion now threatens the zombified institutions of daily life, especially the workings of politics and finance. Just as zombies exist only in the collective imagination, so do these two principal activities of society operate mainly on trust, an ephemeral product of the hive-mind.

When things fall apart in stressed complex systems, they tend to fall apart fast. It’s called phase change. Read More

Jim Reid

The shockwaves and consequences around Brexit will resonate for years. It's probably an understatement to say that most in financial markets regret the UK's decision to leave but we should respect the forces that have been pushing us towards what has always been an inevitable political accident sometime soon. I wasn't sure whether the Brexit vote was the one but I was pretty convinced one was coming and this is probably not the last. Spain yesterday started a general election cycle (more below but relatively market friendly) of the largest 5 euro-area economies (Spain, Holland, France, Germany and Italy) over the next 18 months or so, not forgetting the US this November.

Voice of Reason

John Adams, the second President of the United States famously said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.“ Consider it wholly inadequate for the American people then…

While referring to Obama, earlier this year Ted Nugent said, “Nobody in their right mind, and I do mean correct-educated, conscientious, logical, self-evident-truth-grasping mind, will believe this punk.” I would argue that the same can be said for believing the nonsense that comes out of ANY liberals mouth… ESPECIALLY Hillary Clinton.

That’s an appetizing figure, especially for a government that just passed $19 trillion in debt and is in pressing need of new funding sources.

Even when you account for all federal assets (like national parks and aircraft carriers), the government’s “net financial position” according to its own accounting is negative $17.7 trillion. Read More

Over the past several decades, the U.S. State Department has deteriorated from a reasonably professional home for diplomacy and realism into a den of armchair warriors possessed of imperial delusions, a dangerous phenomenon underscored by the recent mass “dissent” in favor of blowing up more people in Syria.

Some 51 State Department “diplomats” signed a memo distributed through the official “dissent channel,” seeking military strikes against the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad whose forces have been leading the pushback against Islamist extremists who are seeking control of this important Mideast nation.

Mateen’s father, Seddique Mateen, apparently visits the Capitol frequently, take pictures in front of the State Department and White House press room, and likes to pose with Congressmen, especially from the Foreign Affairs Committee.

06.17.16- In Defense of Self-Defense
Andrew P. Napolitano

Most of the mass killings by gun in the United States in recent years — Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Newtown, Charleston, San Bernardino and now Orlando — took place in venues where local or state law prohibited carrying guns, even by those lawfully licensed to do so. The government cheerfully calls these venues “gun-free zones.” They should be called killing zones.

As unspeakable and horrific as is the recent slaughter in Orlando, it has become just another example of the tragic consequences of government’s interfering with the exercise of fundamental liberties. After a while, these events cease to shock; but they should not cease to cause us to re-examine what the government has done to us. Read More

06.16.16- The End of the Republic?
Walter Williams

According to a New York Post article (May 22, 2016), in just two years, Hillary Clinton, former first lady, senator from New York and secretary of state, collected over $21 million in speaking fees. These fees were paid by Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank, Fidelity Investments, UBS, Bank of America and several hedge fund companies. In 2015, lobbyists spent $3.22 billion lobbying Congress. In 2013 and 2014, just 10 chemical companies and allied organizations spent more than $154 million lobbying the federal government. The Center for Responsive Politics in 2013 reported that The Dow Chemical Co. “posted record lobbying expenditures” in 2012, “spending nearly $12 million,” and was “on pace to eclipse” that amount.

America is in shock. On Sunday, a 29-year-old Islamic terrorist named Omar Mateen shot 102 people at a gay club known as Pulse in the heart of Orlando, Florida. 49 of those that were shot died, and 53 were wounded. So how in the world did this happen?

Well, when you combine radical political correctness with extreme government incompetence and the dramatic growth of radical Islam inside the United States, you create an environment which is absolutely primed for Islamic terror.

The truth is that the FBI knew about this guy well in advance. In fact, they had even interviewed him three separate times over the years. Read More

The numbers are simply mad: total debt rose from around USD 100 billion ca 2006 to almost USD 1 trillion by the end of 2015. On a per capita of student population basis, same period rise was from around USD 16,000 per student to over USD100,000 per student.

Paul Craig Roberts

On the eve of World War II the United States was still mired in the Great Depression and found itself facing war on two fronts with Japan and Germany. However bleak the outlook, it was nothing compared to the outlook today.

Has anyone in Washington, the presstitute Western media, the EU, or NATO ever considered the consequences of constant military and propaganda provocations against Russia? Is there anyone in any responsible position anywhere in the Western world who has enough sense to ask: “What if the Russians believe us? What if we convince Russia that we are going to attack her?” Read More

06.09.16- The Federal Reserve’s Strange Behavior Makes Perfect Sense
Brandon Smith

If you think the Federal Reserve’s goal is to maintain or repair the U.S. economy, then you will never understand why they do the things they do or why the economy evolves the way that it does. The Fed’s job is not to protect the U.S. economy. The Fed’s job is to DESTROY the U.S. economy to make way for a truly global system. There seems to be a collective delusion within certain parts of the liberty movement that the “globalists” (the banking and political elites that promote total global centralization of finance and power) are a purely American or Western problem, and that they have some kind of loyalty to the success, or perceived success, of the U.S. “empire.” This is nonsensical when you look at the progression of the American fiscal system after the Fed was established over a century ago.

Why does Facebook get away with using your microphone to "target ads" without Zuckerpig being indicted despite laws in several states, including Florida, that make interception of oral communications a felony unless everyone involved gives consent?

Why did our government run guns to drug dealers that were then used in dozens of murders, including a border agent, and yet nobody has been indicted or gone to prison for it?

Why did our government fine big banks (instead of indicting the officers and directors) who were knowingly laundering billions of drug money on an international basis? Read More

06.01.16- The Boiling Pot
Richard Heinberg

On the surface, things appear normal. The status quo of life in America circa 2016 isn’t to everyone’s liking, but at least the system is still working after a fashion. The price of oil is going up a bit: that means the cost of driving is also creeping higher, but steeper prices provide a little welcome relief for an oil industry otherwise teetering on the brink of financial ruin. There are tiresomely long lines at airports, but that means people have the wherewithal to pay for plane tickets. Most people are disgusted with the presumptive U.S. presidential candidates, but at least the machine of electoral politics is still marginally functioning. The stock market is up, unemployment is down. We’re muddling through. Read More

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. Read More

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.

Political Correctness Comedy

We have recently come across a video that is simply too funny not be shared. It also happens to dovetail nicely with our friend Claudio’s recent essay on political correctness and cultural Marxism. Since this is generally a rather depressing topic, we have concluded that having a good laugh at it might not be the worst idea.

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

05.09.16- Chaos & Volatility On The Rise
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. Read More

05.02.16- 17 Points from Agenda 2030 Decrypted
Ryan Cristian

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
