Brandon, Rotting in the (White) House
Janes Howard Kunstler

“We are going to have the most diverse and inclusive civilizational collapse in history” — Oilfield Rando on “X”

Hark! We are informed this Presidents’ Day by The New York Times that a poll out of the University of Houston, led by one prof of poly-sci named (get this name) Brandon Rottinghaus, ranks “Joe Biden” at No. 14, way above average among the forty-six demi-gods elected to run the US government since 1789. It’s a helluva good bit of news for a nation in need of reassurance in these dark days, don’t you agree? They’ve got him sandwiched between John Quincy Adams and Woodrow Wilson, beating out the likes of Andrew Jackson, Grover Cleveland, James Monroe, and Ronald Reagan. Read More

02.19.24- The Democrat Party
is a criminal enterprise!

Ted Noel MD

Ordinarily, there is no honor among thieves, but in the Democrat Party, the practice is omerta. Anything other than absolute silence is cause for extreme measures. Take, for example, the charges leveled against Alexander Smirnov. He is the whistleblower and confidential FBI informant who testified that Hunter and Joe got bribes from Burisma. We have the receipts about Hunter’s no-show “job” on the Board, where he got paid $80k a month for not doing anything. Smirnov said there were $5 million payouts to Joe and Hunter, so Joe would lean on the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor looking into Burisma. So the FBI arrested him when he got back from a foreign trip. Read More

02.17.24- Weekend Rant:
Speed. . . and. . . Action

James Howard Kunstler

“It’s like every other two-minute clip I watch of this Fani Willis interview she admits to committing another felony.” — Senator JD Vance (R-OH)

Have you noticed yet that America has turned into a Coen Brothers movie? Everywhere you look, you see madcap characters disgracing themselves while doing their bit to burn the whole country down. It’s a panoramic extravaganza of everything gone wrong, with slapstick overtones, driving toward an apocalyptic climax — civil war, nuclear war, economic collapse, maybe all three. And all because the people on-screen just can’t stop lying. Read More

02.16.24- Beware of the Philanthropaths
Jim Quinn

I learned a new word today: Philanthropath (noun).

A philanthropath is a psychopath masquerading as a philanthropist.

I think this made up word in the meme below perfectly captures the tyrannical billionaire psychopaths who seem to have gained control of the world using their billions, while portraying themselves as the saviors of humanity. Whenever I see the term Foundation related to one of these psychopaths, I know that Foundation is nothing more than a front to achieve their evil agenda. And if ever their was a poster boy for philanthropaths across the world, it would be Mister depopulation/vaccine pusher/farmer Bill Gates and his Gates Foundation. Read More

02.15.24- The Worst Way to “Save”
Social Security

Peter Reagan

It’s a well-known fact by now that the Social Security Trust Fund is in big trouble.

It’s also a fact that without a reasonable solution by 2034, retirees will face a serious reduction (20-25%) to their monthly Social Security benefit. The last time the trust fund was depleted like this was back in 1982. Read More

02.14.24- Just Wait Until You See What Happens When They Realize What Is Really Happening To The Economy…
Michael Snyder

If stock prices are going to start plunging just because inflation is running a little bit hotter than expected, what is going to happen once the market finally realizes that the entire economy is literally starting to come apart at the seams?  Consumer delinquency rates are spiking, the commercial real estate crisis is rapidly picking up steam, banks from coast to coast are in deep financial trouble, large corporations all over America are conducting mass layoffs, and homelessness has been rising at the fastest pace ever recorded. Read More

02.13.24- The Third Economic Destruction of Germany
Vox Day

The combination of financially backing the EU, supporting NATO’s Russian sanctions, the primitive Green agenda, and the importation of millions of economically net-negative immigrants has finally overwhelmed what was once one of the world’s great economic engines:

One in three German manufacturers is considering moving production to other countries amid economic troubles, double the number recorded in 2022, Bild news outlet reported on Saturday, citing Siegfried Russwurm, the head of the Federation of German Industries (BDI).  Read More

02.12.24- The Regime Has Never Looked So Weak. What Will They Do Next?
William M. Briggs

This is a post written in haste, and I welcome, more than usual, your take on the events of the day, since I surely missed a lot.

So Tucker Carlson had his interview with Vladimir Putin, the latter, whatever else he is or may be, coming across as an intelligent man, a sober man, and man with some grasp of the world and his place, and his peoples’ place, in history. Read More

02.10.24- Moderna Finally Admits mRNA Vaccines Are ‘Highly Toxic to Human Health’
Sean Adl-Tabatabai

The scientists at Moderna have finally admitted what the rest of us have known for years – the mRNA Covid vaccines are “highly toxic to human health”.

“A major challenge now is how to efficiently de-risk potential toxicities associated with mRNA technology,” the scientists warned in a paper, which was published by Nature Reviews Drug Discovery on Jan. 23. Read More

02.09.24- FBI Raids of Safe Deposit Boxes
Doug Casey

International Man: Recently, the FBI raided 700 safe deposit boxes in Beverly Hills.

They opened and searched through the content of every single box, regardless of whether there was any probable cause that individual box owners had committed any crime. Read More

02.08.24- Controlled Instability
Robert Gore

Would-be rulers embrace a moronic oxymoron.

The Houthis stymie 12 percent of the world’s shipping. Israel has bitten off more than it can chew and is desperately trying to maneuver the U.S. into a broader Middle Eastern engagement and years of pointless war. In Europe, farmers and truckers are protesting and blocking roads over climate change measures and other grievances. In the U.S., a governor ignores a Supreme Court decision and receives support from 25 fellow governors. Read More

02.07.24- America Is Undergoing Genocide
Paul Craig Roberts

It is not a conspiracy theory that the 300,000 immigrant-invaders (official count) entering the US unopposed each month are recruits organized by NGOs and not refugees from political persecution. The NGOs that are underwriting the invasion provide maps of the routes along which food and shelter are provided.  Roads and bridges are being constructed to aid the invasion.   

One of the NGOs is the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), of which the current director of the US Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, himself a Jew,  was a board member until December 2020.  According to an article on substack, HIAS has received $100,000,000 from the US government in the past three years. Read More

02.06.24- 100 Million Fire Ants on the March
Elizabeth Nickson

Much journalism these days is filled with fear, a genre made by the paranoid for the paranoid. A friend sent me Victor Davis Hanson’s recent X post about the lawsuits faced by President Trump, the corruption of the judicial system, the desperate straits he is in. Hanson, who I privately think of as Eeyore, is the King of the Genre. Thankfully he is a deeply read man, and necessary, which is why he is King. And his mind is clear. He sees it clear. But he’s wrong. All those lawsuits foundered this week, a mere week later. And wrong are all the other catastrophists. They are so used to those on the top of the pile determining the shape of the things that their view is narrowed to officialdom, to the so-called “mainstream”. Read More

02.05.24- Politicians Need To Stop Pretending the National Debt Is Sustainable
Veronique de Rugy

The reality raises questions about the kind of future we want to leave for the next generation.

Over the years, I've offered many explanations about why the trajectory of the national debt is deeply troubling. At this point, though, my worry isn't rooted in a dogmatic adherence to the principles of a balanced budget. Nor does it come from my desire for a smaller government. Instead, I'm alarmed by politicians' unwillingness to look at the numbers and have a serious discussion about changing course. Read More

02.03.24- 8 Signs That Demonstrate How Truly Bizarre Our Society Is Becoming
Michael Snyder

In “The Wizard of Oz”, at one point Dorothy tells her dog that she has “a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore”.  She had been dropped in a strange new world that was crazier than anything she had ever imagined.  Needless to say, many of us feel the exact same way.  We’re not in the America that we grew up in anymore.  Instead, we now live in a country that appears to be a cross between a really bad science fiction movie and a freak show.  Sadly, the pace of change has now reached an exponential rate, and things will get even more insane during the years that are ahead of us. Read More

02.02.24- What Do You Call It When The Number Of Layoffs In The U.S. Goes Up By 136 Percent In Just One Month?
Michael Snyder

Wow, our economic problems really are starting to accelerate at a shocking pace.  I know that I have been writing about layoffs a lot lately, but what is happening to the employment market right now is definitely big news.   Day after day, more large companies are announcing mass layoffs.  Why would all of these large companies be doing this if the outlook for the U.S. economy is promising?  That wouldn’t make any sense at all.  But if these companies are convinced that the U.S. economy is heading into a recession (or worse), it would make perfect sense to slash payrolls at this time.

02.01.24- After careful analysis, biomedical research scientist concludes that virology is a “fraudulent pseudoscience”
Lance D Johnson

A published biomedical research scientist, who spent nearly a decade working in the field of virology, claims that virology has always been a “fraudulent pseudoscience.” In a newly published exposé, biomedical research scientist Simon Lee argues that virology is a “dying field” that has no roots in the scientific method.

“While most people regard virology as a bonafide hard science, it does not follow the scientific method and has its roots firmly in fraudulent pseudoscience,” he wrote. Read More

01.31.24- Trump Vows to Stop Biden Bucks
James Rickards

At a recent New Hampshire campaign rally, Donald Trump reiterated what he’s been saying for months: that central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) are dangerous and he would never allow one if elected:

Tonight, I am also making another promise to protect Americans from government tyranny. As your president, I will never allow the creation of a central bank digital currency… Read More

01.30.24- Are We On The Verge Of An Apocalyptic War With Iran?
Michael Snyder

U.S. lawmakers are calling for military strikes inside Iran in the aftermath of a horrific terror attack that left three U.S. service members dead and dozens wounded.  So if the U.S. does hit targets inside Iranian territory, how will the Iranians respond?  It is theoretically possible that they could back down, but I doubt it.  All of the airstrikes that we have conducted so far against Iranian-backed terror groups in Iraq and Syria have not caused them to back down.  And the airstrikes that we have hit the Houthis in Yemen with have not caused them to back down either.  The truth is that the U.S. is already at war in the Middle East, and it appears that it could soon take an apocalyptic turn.

01.29.24- Turkish Authorities Arrest 30+ People with Suspected Ties to Israel’s Mossad
Chris Macintosh

NATO MEMBER

Before we get into this, please remember that Turkiye is part of the North Atlantic Terrorist Treaty Organisation (NATO).

Turkiye detains dozens of suspected Mossad agents

What surely must be clear to all but a complete moron at this point is that Turkiye has already decisively moved towards the East, and the only reason they’re still in NATO is to collect the few billion a year in military spending they get from the US. This can’t and won’t last. Read More

01.27.24- Michelle, Ma Belle
James Howard Kunstler

“What a train wreck it is for the democrats! What an unholy mess! It is an unmitigated disaster, the sinking of the Titanic multiplied by that plane crash where the soccer players ate each other.” — Jeff Childers on the Fani Willis case.

As Donald Trump consolidates his election mojo — defying the forces arrayed to destroy him — and more of the country turns against the creepy apparition in the White House purportedly running against him, you hear evermore chatter that a panicked Democratic Party will insert Michelle Obama in a last-minute convention switcheroo next August.

01.26.24- Texas Should Nullify
Supreme Court Decision

Joseph Sansone

When the Roman Empire was in decline, it had difficulty maintaining its borders from the barbarian hordes. True, they weren’t all pillaging, many were migrating to escape other barbarians, but the Romans weren’t able to repel or withstand the influx. The Romans ended up having many of these barbarians serve in the Roman Legions as mercenaries in exchange for citizenship. If it sounds a little familiar, it should, as some in Congress have been floating the idea of exchanging citizenship for military service for illegal aliens. Read More

01.25.24- Trump MUST Win
Brian Maher

Some 33% of Americans distrust elections.

That is, 33% of Americans distrust the granite beneath democracy — the ballot itself.

They believe the thing rests upon limestone foundations. Or worse… sand foundations. Read More

01.24.24- Question Everything
Francis Christian

Going forward, our ability to question everything is going to be like the oxygen that sustains every breath we take. Asking “why,” “when,” “how,” “how come” “what” and “where” will be make or break stuff for our civilization.

As unattractive as it may seem to adults, the training of the child to question everything had better start at home. No school will teach it. Peer pressure will not foster it. And the culture will certainly not support it. It must be taught at home. Read More

01.23.24- The Chaos is Already Blowing up
David Haggith

Wall Street is worried about a major liquidity crisis in banks this March; the ice-dam in housing prices is cracking; AI election interference has begun; and GDP is projected to go negative next qtr.

Today, we have several stories in the news that affirm the major trends I’ve warned to watch out for, particularly those mentioned in yesterday’s popular Deeper Dive, where I made a fair part of the article available to everyone for free. Read More

The Goddess of the WEF
James Howard Kunstler

“What has been the number one theme of the World Economic Forum this year? It’s not climate change, it’s not Ukraine. It is censorship of the internet. They are painting a target directly on @ElonMusk’s forehead and they’re labeling it ‘X'” — Jack Posobeic

Tell me: is there a fairer grandmotherly face than this in all of Western Civ? Does it not seem to radiate eons of aggregate wisdom, maternal kindness, bountiful nurture, caring, and healing, and even a hint of fun in the nursery. . . the rectified essence of Teutonic beauty, fertility, vitality, and virtue. . . the loving smile of the life-giver caressing humanity like a spring zephyr wafting through the piney Schwarzwald on a June morning?

01.19.24- How the Climate Hysteria Is Lowering Your Standard of Living
Doug Casey

International Man: The carbon hysteria extends far beyond oil and gas companies.

One overlooked area is household appliances.

Politicians are implementing increasingly stringent regulations for dishwashers, washing machines, and other appliances. There have even been reports of a desire to phase out gas stoves.

What’s your take on all of this? Read More

01.18.24- Market Mania Breaks Down and War
Breaks out Wider

David Haggith

The market's mania that bet for massive Fed rate cuts this year began to break apart today while hotheaded, maniacal warriors turned up the heat in the Middle East.

Suddenly the rate-cut mania is starting to crash and burn. Stocks dropped today as positive retail data caused investors to say, “Oh, maybe that Fed pivot isn’t coming in March after all!” It was only yesterday that I went on a tirade about how incredibly out of touch the rate-cut fantasies for 2024 are with reality and out of touch with how the Fed works during times of inflation and out of touch with the actual rising rate of inflation that is already back in play as I predicted.

01.17.24- Embracing Realism with an Attitude of Pessimism and a Foreboding Sense
of Fatalism

Doug “Uncola” Lynn

We perceive our civic challenge as some vast, insoluble Rubik’s Cube. Behind each problem lies another problem that must be solved first, and behind that lies yet another, and another, ad infinitum. To fix crime we have to fix the family, but before we do that we have to fix welfare, and that means fixing our budget, and that means fixing our civic spirit, but we can’t do that without fixing moral standards, and that means fixing schools and churches, and that means fixing the inner cities, and that’s impossible unless we fix crime. There’s no fulcrum on which to rest a policy lever. People of all ages sense that something huge will have to sweep across America before the gloom can be lifted – but that’s an awareness we suppress. As a nation, we’re in deep denial. Read More

01.16.24- Defence Secretary Austin's Presumptive Replacement Woke Deep-Stater,
Dr. Kathleen Hicks.

Bob Bishop

Lloyd Austin underwent an invasive surgical procedure called a prostatectomy for his prostate cancer. He was readmitted to the ICU ward of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center seven days later, on January 1st, due to complications caused by a severe infection. It appears he was septic. He concealed his inability to carry out his duties from Biden, Congress, the Pentagon, and his Deputy Secretary, Dr. Kathleen Hicks. On January 4th, finally becoming aware of Austin’s hospitalization, security adviser Jake Sullivan notified Hicks, who was on vacation in Puerto Rico. Read More

01.13.24- Why Stalin and Hitler Should Never Have Happened
David Stockman

Herewith is a capsulized dissection which attempts to explain why Stalin and Hitler should have never happened. Accordingly, the hot, cold and Forever Wars wars that followed thereafter condemn the case for the American Empire, not make it; and they show that Trump’s America First is a far more appropriate lodestone for national security policy than Imperial Washington’s specious claim that America is the Indispensable Nation.

01.12.24- Poison Spiders at the Center of the Web
James Howard Kunstler

“The same people accusing Trump voters of subverting democracy are the ones who cheated in every election since the 1960s, lied to get us into half a dozen stupid wars, created Covid in a lab, and then covered that up. You are free to tell them to STFU” — Peachy Keenan

You know why the judge let provocateur Ray Epps off the hook for his antics before and during the so-called J-6 “insurrection,” don’t you? Well, yes, it was partly because he was acting at the direction of blob officials, most likely the FBI, but possibly the CIA, Defense Intelligence, or some black-box fed outfit no one ever of (but somehow gets half a billion in funding every year).

01.11.24- 7 WARS are happening right now, and America is behind them all
S.D. Wells

Remember the “War on Terrorism?” What ever happened to that? Supposedly, a couple dozen years back, a bunch of illegal immigrants flew some planes into some tall buildings in New York City, except both buildings, constructed with 200,000 tons of steel, were reduced to rubble, demolition style, not to mention a third building half a mile away, that never even got “hit.” Any intelligent person would have to question the “official” narrative, and highly suspect the whole thing was staged as an “inside job” by the ever-powerful military industrial complex.

01.10.24- The Perpetual War On Free Speech
Donald Jeffries

The Founding Fathers made the Constitution palatable by including a Bill of Rights. Without the First 10 Amendments, the Constitution is just what its early critics, including Patrick Henry and Thomas Jefferson, said it was; a dangerous consolidation of power far less representative of liberty than the Articles of Confederation.

01.09.24- American Pravda: Israel and the Holocaust Hoax 
Ron Unz

Last month I explored the historical origins of the State of Israel and the intertwined expulsion of the Palestinian refugees from their ancient homeland. During this discussion, I emphasized the crucial role that the Jewish Holocaust had played in justifying and facilitating those momentous events of three generations ago.

I read or reread more than a dozen books for my long review article, and also glancingly mentioned an additional one, which I’ve now digested as well. My main focus had been on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, and The Seventh Million by Tom Segev only slightly touched on that topic. But his descriptive subtitle “The Israelis and the Holocaust” suggested a related subject of inquiry that proved quite fruitful. Read More

01.08.24- An Experiment in Stupidity
Charles Dickens

This article is my first post for 2024, so I thought I’d summarize last year in a single quotation; you all know how much I love quotes. Unlike Claudine Gay, I don’t take credit for them.

Today’s quotation is one that I find decidedly appropriate to the festering situation in America. It’s a summation of the last three years, and it is more than appropriate… by the way – I don’t expect this to end in 2024…

01.05.24- Obama’s Weird New Movie… Does He Know Something We Don’t?
Brandon Smith

There has been a lot of buzz lately about a new film released by Netflix and funded by the Obama family titled Leave the World Behind. Spoiler alert: The plot revolves around a catastrophic collapse triggered by a cyber-attack (and mass drone attack) organized by a secret cabal that shuts down the internet and disrupts the global economy. The resulting chaos triggers extreme civil disruption and pushes the U.S. to the brink of civil war within 48 hours. Read More

01.04.24- The Day The Dollar Dies?
J.G.Collins

Debt, reckless foreign policy, and the malicious intent of our adversaries threaten the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

Since roughly the last year of World War II, the U.S. dollar has enjoyed what one-time French finance minister Valéry Giscard d’Estaing once called the “exorbitant privilege” of being the world’s reserve currency. It’s had that position since roughly 1944, when it seized the role of the world’s currency hegemon from the British pound sterling. Read More

01.03.24- 2024: Do We Hit the Iceberg or Finally Change Course?
J.B. Shurk

It is difficult for any American who loves this country to watch its political, economic, and military “leaders” destroy it.  Part of the political theater propping up the illusion of electoral choice in this Kabuki dance that the State-controlled press calls “democracy” is the lie that officeholders from different parties are at each other’s throats.  More Americans than ever finally see through this convenient fiction and understand that a single Uniparty acts as a guild of political thespians who are the face of a permanently entrenched national security Deep State that runs the show.

Getting sick and getting well is part of the human experience at all times in all places. As with other phenomena of human existence, that suggests there is a great deal of embedded knowledge on the topic woven into the fabric of our lives. We aren’t born knowing but we come to know: from our moms and dads, experience of siblings and others, from our own experience, and from medical professionals who deal with the problem daily.
