After nearly two years of America pursuing politically motivated policies to “eradicate” an unstoppable respiratory virus, an increasing number of liberal politicians, commentators, and publications have begun to speak out about the failures and human cost of lockdowns and the vaccine/mask mandates. They, along with many on the right, are applauding those who now claim that government Covid policy was a “catastrophic moral crime.” Read More
01.25.22- Ok, He’s Insane
The market certainly thinks so.
Don't kid yourselves folks; the headline out overnight that Biden is contemplating committing actual troops to Ukraine is why the dive this morning in the markets.
If you think any sort of armed conflict with Russia is a good idea you're out of your mind. If you think projecting weakness toward them while at the same time doing anything that threatens their only 12-month deep-water port is going to turn out well you're crazy enough that you deserve the collapse of civil society or even nuclear attack you're risking.

Washington and its NATO allies are jeopardizing peace in Europe. They are creating the conditions for war between nuclear powers.
American President Joe Biden said this week he thinks Russia will invade Ukraine. Only days ago, Biden and his top aides were not sure, saying they didn’t know if that would happen. If the highest-ranking members of the U.S. executive can’t agree on a coherent thought process, then there is strong reason to conclude that they are clueless and what they are claiming is baseless. In short, lies. Read More
Death is in the air. Unless you have been living in a cave for the past 12 months, you already know that this is true. Old people are dying, young people are dying, famous people are dying, and countless hard working Americans that make up the backbone of our economy are dying. For months, I have been writing articles about “the mystery of the missing workers”. For the very first time in U.S. history, we have a severe shortage of able-bodied workers, and this is one of the biggest reasons why we are facing an unprecedented supply chain crisis today. Millions of Americans that were working prior to the pandemic seem to have “disappeared” from the system, and now it has become clear that a lot of them have simply died. Read More
01.21.22- Ad for Omicron Vaccine "Placebo"
01.20.22- Big Pharma’s Siege of America
Remember this time last year when the vax bandwagon really got rolling? The vax had been announced in November 2020 and was fast-tracked through the approval process (on an experimental basis at the time). But it took a while to get to doses shipped and distributed and for people to become aware of where they could get it. That played out over December 2020, but by January 2021, the effort was in full swing. Read More
Call of Duty; Duty of Care
I didn’t want to focus on Russia-Ukraine again today. However, when Bloomberg thinks Microsoft buying Activision, makers of the wartime video game “Call of Duty”, is more important rather than the risks of actual war, I have to. That editorial choice perfectly summarizes why one shouldn’t look to financial media for a forward view of the fat tail risks that can truly move markets most. It also epitomizes a generation for whom if things aren’t on their screens, they aren’t happening or didn’t happen, and that thinks wars are games and movies; and an ‘ESG’-obsessed Wall Street that actually doesn’t care about things like that if they aren’t the ones on the end of it.

Despite a growing resurgence of interest in the science and psychology of narcissistic sociopaths and psychopaths it seems as though society today has lost track of how these people can sabotage the core fabric of a civilization or nation. It is very easy to hyper-focus on collectivist ideologies as the source of our problems and forget that these ideologies do not function in a vacuum; they cannot wreak havoc by themselves, they need psychopathic people directing them to do real damage.

01.17.22- Headed for a
What if the Russians aren’t bluffing? Western leaders seem to think that they can just keep provoking the Russians over and over again without any consequences. It was pretty obvious that western hands were behind the recent riots in Kazakhstan, and now the head of NATO has come out and publicly said that a decision has already been made to make Ukraine and Georgia members of NATO. He was referring to a decision that was made many years ago, but publicly reaffirming that decision in this exceedingly tense environment is extremely counterproductive if the goal is peace. The Russians have repeatedly warned that adding Ukraine to NATO is a red line that must never be crossed. And unlike many western leaders, Russian officials tend to be deadly serious about their “red lines”. Read More
01.14.22- Sound Money Isn’t Enough
Today we recognize a distressing possibility: Sound money does not ensure sound government.
That is, sound money – in our fallen world of sin and vice – cannot constrain sinful and viceful men hostile to sound government.
Nor can constitutions and bills of rights. Is it proof you need? We merely refer you to the innumerable rascalities of the United States government. Read More
Did anyone out there actually expect things to turn out differently? When the federal government kept borrowing and spending trillions upon trillions of dollars that we did not have, we were warned that this day was coming. And when the Federal Reserve kept pumping trillions upon trillions of fresh dollars into our financial system, we were warned that this day was coming. So why is anybody surprised by what is happening at this point? On Wednesday, it was being reported that in December the U.S. consumer price index rose at the fastest pace in nearly 40 years…Read More
01.12.22- The Age of Intolerance: Cancel Culture’s War on Free Speech
Cancel culture—political correctness amped up on steroids, the self-righteousness of a narcissistic age, and a mass-marketed pseudo-morality that is little more than fascism disguised as tolerance—has shifted us into an Age of Intolerance, policed by techno-censors, social media bullies, and government watchdogs.
Everything is now fair game for censorship if it can be construed as hateful, hurtful, bigoted or offensive provided that it runs counter to the established viewpoint. Read More
01.11.22- Light It Up!
We are at a strange pass in The Saga of Covid. It seems the spikey virus wants to leave center stage, is weary of all the attention, wants to fade into the eternal parade of microorganisms that cozily coexist within the human life-stream — like Tony Fauci’s HIV, a fellow traveler in the old-time throng of human viruses, now semi-retired, and yet still every bit as mysterious in the actual mechanism of AIDS as it was when Dr. Fauci pinned his NIAID distinguished service medal on its elusive bosom, so to speak (but you’d have to read Bobby Kennedy’s book on Fauci to get the drift of that).

The Neo-Cons and the Military Industrial Complex have had a stranglehold on American foreign policy for over twenty years. They are behind the series of one military disaster after another finishing lately with the Afghanistan debacle just six months ago. The much vaunted and highly expensive US military fought a guerrilla force not ever bigger than a decent size Girl Scout Troop made up of goat and sheepherders. They got their asses kicked. It took twenty years for the generals to determine they lost and should bail out of a $2.3 trillion dollar blunder. Read More
01.08.22- Freedom Is the Answer
I’m now looking again at the polls of Biden’s popularity. They are shocking, even devastating.
We are looking at nearly a 12-point split between approval and disapproval. I’m assuming that the reality is much worse, given that everyone knows what one is supposed to tell the pollsters. They are not looking for disapproval. They are looking for compliance. That so many are willing just to say what they think is striking. Read More
01.07.22- Politics and Health:
“It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”Read More
01.06.22- The Pilgrims Tried Socialism
With the Thanksgiving holiday in the rear view mirror, we can get past the carving of a turkey; the stuffing and sweet potatoes; and many slices of pumpkin pie that almost all of us happily consumed. But how many of us know or appreciate that Thanksgiving really celebrates the failure of socialism and the birth of private enterprise and personal initiative in America? Read More
01.04.22- The Death Of Truth
Over the past several days I have had some time to think, and my thoughts have repeatedly turned to the current state of the Internet. For a couple of decades after it was popularized, the Internet was one of the greatest tools for free speech that the world has ever seen. It allowed ordinary people like me to share truth on a massive scale with other ordinary people all over the planet. I have always been grateful for that opportunity, but now our ability to share truth with one another over the Internet is being systematically eroded. Nobody can deny that this is taking place, because it is literally happening right in front of our eyes. Over the past decade, control of the Internet has become increasingly centralized. The big tech companies have become exceptionally powerful, and they have become addicted to using that power to suppress speech that they do not like. Read More
For a few months now I’ve been writing that my thinking around Covid tyranny and these elite aspirations toward a Great Reset under their purview had shifted. For nearly two years I had feared that we were headed into a new dark age of totalitarianism and repression, that Western leaders would aspire to implement China-style social credit systems and completely takeover the economy and day to day lives of its subjects.

If the past year has confirmed anything it is that the mainstream media is thoroughly dishonest. Yes, most people already suspected this, but the last 12 months have provided more confirmation than the past several years combined. 2021 has made it clear that the mainstream media is a propaganda arm of political and corporate elitists, from big government to big pharma.
While there have been a few shining examples of independent and mostly unbiased journalism in the MSM, these moments are as rare as Loch Ness Monster sightings and almost as unbelievable. Read More
