03.24.23- My Preferences For Defensive Firearms
Chuck Baldwin

As an author, columnist, radio talk show host and pastor who is outspoken in my support of the Second Amendment, I often receive inquiries from people asking for my personal preferences regarding firearms. This column is devoted to answering some of those inquiries.

I’m sure this column will not provide anything new for the firearms aficionados out there. However, we are living in a violence-prone society, and more and more people (especially ladies) who never paid much attention to guns before are sensing the need to arm themselves but often don’t know where to start. I hope this column helps these folks. Read More

03.23.23- Get Woke, Go Broke?
It’s Time To Talk About SVB’s Ties To
The World Economic Forum

Brandon Smith

After the implosion of the FTX crypto exchange run by Sam Bankman Fried, questions of due diligence and competency immediately arose, suggesting that perhaps the company mishandled assets “accidentally” and that Fried was naive and “in over his head.” Numerous central bank officials and globalist organizations jumped into the debate almost immediately, arguing that FTX was a perfect example of why centralized regulation of crypto and digital currencies was necessary. They claimed that without oversight by banking elites, disaster was inevitable. Read More

03.21.23- Get Ready for the Distressed Equity Bonanza
Simon Black

This isn’t over yet.

Last week after Silicon Valley Bank went poof in a matter of hours, I wrote that this financial catastrophe is just getting started:

“Like Lehman Brothers in 2008, SVB is just the tip of the iceberg. . .”

Within days, several other banks were on the verge of collapse. And now today, of course, major banks in the United States (including JP Morgan) are rallying to save the First Republic Bank. Read More

03.20.23- Silicon Valley Bank’s collapse proves the US is in obvious decline
Simon Black

Throughout history, whenever there has been a major shift in the world, it has usually been accompanied by a single iconic event that is associated with that change.

For example, historians often point to 476 AD as the year that the Western Roman Empire fell, when Odoacer and his barbarians forced the abdication of the Emperor Augustus— even though it was obvious that Rome was in decline way before 476. Read More

03.18.23- SVB + FTX + SBF = WTF?
James Howard Kunstler

“Deny, deflect, minimise & mock your enemies questions. Don’t engage them in good faith, they’re attacking you with a view to undermining you. Don’t fall for it. Don’t give them an inch.” — Aimee Terese on Twitter

The net effect of all the lying propaganda laid on the public by the people running things lo these many recent years is a peculiar inertia that makes us seemingly impervious to gross political shocks. Momentous things happen and almost instantly get swallowed up by time, as by some voracious cosmic amoeba that thrives on human malignancy. Case in point: the multiple suicide of several giant banks just days ago that prompted “Joe Biden” to nationalize the US banking system. Read More

03.17.23- Real Deposit Insurance
Byron King

Some people have big bucks in the bank. But certainly not most American families. Indeed, the average American has more or less zero savings. You’ve probably seen stories about how most Americans cannot afford $500 to repair their car or move from one apartment to another. That’s the general, sad state of the U.S. economy these days.

At any rate, it’s fair to say that these well-heeled, over-$250,000 clients of SVB were not exactly Joe the welder down at the factory, or Nancy the single mom who works at a diner. Not to put too fine a point on it, but there’s no SVB branch in East Palestine, Oh.Read More

03.16.23- 'Time Is Not Our Friend': Solvency & Liquidity Meet Liquency & Solvidity
Peter Tchir

We are hearing a lot about Liquidity and Solvency right now. Often people talk about them as though they are two different things.

That is particularly true for financial companies and banks, which is where this discussion is centered.

I would encourage all of us to watch Israel very carefully in the coming days, because I believe that we could soon see some incredible events take place.  In particular, I am specifically watching for a couple of things.  Rumors of an imminent war between Israel and Iran are starting to reach a crescendo, and I am entirely convinced that such a conflict could potentially erupt this year.  Also, I am closely watching for an announcement about the discovery of the Ark of the Covenant.  Needless to say, such an announcement would be the greatest archaeological bombshell in history.

03.13.23- The Collapse Of SVB
Portends Real Dangers

Jeffrey Tucker

Thus far in this 3-year fiasco of mismanagement and corruption, we’ve avoided a financial crisis. That’s for specific reasons. We just had not traveled there in the trajectory of the inevitable. Are we there yet? Maybe. In any case, the speed of change is accelerating. All that awaits is to observe the extent of the contagion.

The failure of the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB), $212 billion in assets until only recently, is a huge mess and a possible foreshadowing. Its fixed-rate bond holdings declined rapidly in market valuation due to changed market conditions. Its portfolio crashed further due to a depositor run. And it all happened in less than a few days.

03.09.23- The Truth They Won’t Tell You About Social Security
Peter Reagan

Here’s how Social Security is supposed to work: You and your employer pay a portion of your wages (through mandatory payroll taxes) into the Social Security program, which is stored in a “trust fund” where they grow over time. Then, when you retire, you apply for your benefits and collect a monthly check.

We recently were informed that some schools are now ending their honors programs so they can promote “equity” (racism). It seems that lots of the white kids do well in the honors programs so that now must cease and we must begin to enforce a stultifying conformity, a “one size fits all” program they have mislabeled as “equity,” Read More

It’s hard to say whether we’re dealing with a kleptocracy (a government ruled by thieves), a kakistocracy (a government run by unprincipled career politicians, corporations and thieves that has little regard for the rights of American citizens), or if we’ve gone straight to an idiocracyRead More

Justin O. Smith

Well … the more things change the more they remain the same.

I don’t think any of us really knows what it’s going to take to turn life in America around and place it back on a more reasoned and moral path, but it’s a certainty that the nation will soon self-destruct, if it doesn’t soon abandon the policies being implemented by Joe Biden’s anti-American regime. There isn’t any nation that can survive forever being torn between two antithetical ideologies in such a nonsensical, irresponsible and subversive and treasonous manner. Read More

03.03.23- Inflation Smokescreens
the Economic Dumpster Fire

Brandon Smith

The inevitable outcome was clear for a decade at least, but in the run up to the Covid lockdowns there were many economists in the corporate media that outright denied the reality of an inflationary or stagflationary crisis. Joe Biden, Janet Yellen, Paul Krugman and a host of journalists claimed that concerns about inflation were “overblown” and that the Federal Reserve had everything under control.

Some might say they were ignorant. Read More

That said, one should never underestimate the resolve of people to enshrine their wishes as unholy doctrines in order to continue chasing the phantasms of their greed like drunken gamblers in a smoke-clouded casino. This bear market — now well over a year long — has produced many rallies that were exemplary in demonstrating that unattractive quality of the human condition. Read More

02.27.23- The Next Bear Market Shoe

Quoth the Raven

Somebody once described equity pricing to me as a dog that walks on a leash with a man, down a path through the woods.

The path represents the underlying fundamentals of the company or the market, and the dog represents investor sentiment and market valuation about said company or market.

As the man walks down the “fundamentals” path, the dog strays wildly, side-to-side, on the leash. First to the far left side of the path, then back to the right - and in the interim, everywhere in between. It’s distracted, chases woodland creatures, tries to smell items and is just generally excitable. That’s investor behavior. Read More

02.25.23- Weaponizing Global Depression
Charles Hugh Smith

Today, I’m going to talk about weaponizing global depression. That’s right, global depression can be weaponized. The key to this dynamic is the asymmetries built into the global economy.

One important asymmetry is energy, with exporting (producer) nations on one end and importing (consumer) nations on the other. A very small number of nations/regions occupy the middle: they export or import relatively little energy, as they are largely self-sufficient and can make do with what they produce themselves. They aren’t reliant on exports for income or imports to keep their economy from collapsing. Read More

02.22.23- Pfizer Knowingly Allowed Dangerous Components in its Vaccines (Part 1)
Yuhong Dong, M.D., Ph.D.

Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine contains mRNA fragments called “truncated mRNA.” This is a serious issue on top of the vaccine’s life-threatening safety events. Stunningly, Pfizer submitted falsified mRNA analytical reports to multiple health authorities.

The issue of truncated mRNA led the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to raise a “major objection” before its December 2020 conditional approval of the vaccine. What has happened?

Joe Biden just made a surprise visit to Kyiv during which he announced that the U.S. is going to be involved for “as long as it takes” to win the war against Russia.  Meanwhile, the Russians have now pulled together far more forces than they originally invaded Ukraine with a year ago.  They intend to fight for “as long as it takes” too.  There are no peace negotiations and there aren’t going to be any peace negotiations.  Both sides are counting on the other side to eventually back down.  But what happens if both sides just keep escalating matters until a “point of no return” is reached?

At the very beginning of the covid event in late 2019 to early 2020 the public had little to no information on the details surrounding the outbreak in Wuhan, China and what kind of virus the world might be facing. The virus was coming to western shores and so the public had to prepare for the potential consequences.

People were supposedly dying en masse in China, but the communist country refused to give accurate data on the situation and to this day their reported covid death rate is highly suspect. After a period of uncertainty, suddenly, there was a rush by the media and by government officials to predict the worst case scenario. Read More

What the OSCE discovered was that the bombardment dramatically intensified as the week went on until it reached a peak on February 19, when a total of 2,026 artillery strikes were recorded. Keep in mind, the Ukrainian Army was, in fact, shelling civilian areas along the Line of Contact that were occupied by other Ukrainians.

01.13.23- Decline of Empire: Parallels Between the U.S. and Rome, Part 2

Like the Romans, we’re supposedly ruled by laws, not by men. In Rome, the law started with the 12 Tablets in 451 BCE, with few dictates and simple enough to be inscribed on bronze for all to see. A separate body of common law developed from trials, held sometimes in the Forum, sometimes in the Senate.

When the law was short and simple, the saying “Ignorantia juris non excusat” (ignorance of the law is no excuse) made sense. But as the government and its legislation became more ponderous, the saying became increasingly ridiculous. Eventually, under Diocletian, law became completely arbitrary, with everything done by the emperor’s decrees—we call them Executive Orders today. Read More

Because the business model of the global economy is broken and the supposed remedy for that is centralized control of populations and super-strict regulation of all their activities — that is, techno-tyranny (with Marxist characteristics, as the Chinese like to put it). Not everybody wants to ride that bus, and so an epic economic problem becomes an arduous political struggle, here and elsewhere in the world. Read More

01.10.23- The Benefits of a Saving Culture
Alasdair Macleod

Savings are a vital component of any successful economy, and the foolishness behind the paradox of thrift is exposed in this article. It has been a huge error for Keynesian policy makers to discourage savings in the interests of temporary boosts to consumerism.

It is probably too late now but encouraging people to save by removing all taxation from savings makes an enormous contribution to reducing price inflation and trade deficits, while enhancing national wealth. This is evidenced empirically and demonstrated by reasoned theory.  Read More

01.09.23- Fear Of COVID Is
The Opiate Of The People

Mark Oshinskie

After all of the criticism I’ve directed toward Coronamaniacs and the Vaxxmongers over the past three years - in-person and online - I know that many of them have wished that I’d get very sick and die “from Covid.” If I had, they would have gleefully jeered me, as many did when lockdown critic Herman Cain died. Bear in mind that Mr. Cain was 74 and had Stage IV cancer.

But I haven’t died “from Covid.” Like the super-vast majority of people, I was never at any risk of doing so. Read More

01.07.23- 11 Signs That The Economic "Tipping Point" That Everyone's Been Waiting For Has Arrived
Michael Snyder

How bad do things have to get before people start realizing that we are in the midst of a full-blown economic crisis?

The “experts” on television are endlessly debating about whether or not we are going to have a “recession” this year, and meanwhile economic activity is imploding all around us.  The number of homes being sold in this country each month has already fallen by a third.  The number of job cuts in November was 417 percent higher than it was during the same month a year earlier, and at this point even Amazon is laying off thousands of workers.

01.06.23- Are You Prepared
For A Hard Landing?

MN Gordon

The New Year brings both optimism and hope.  A chance to start fresh.  To turn over a new leaf.

The sentiment is welcome.  The outcome, however, can be a grave disappointment.

If you recall, 2022 was supposed to be a year of redemption and prosperity.  After the ugly coronavirus fiasco, the economy was finally reopening.  The general belief was that the resurgence of economic activity was going to bring a new boom and a new cycle of prosperity. Read More

01.05.23- Decline of Empire: Parallels Between
the U.S. and Rome

Doug Casey

Part I

As some of you know, I’m an aficionado of ancient history. I thought it might be worthwhile to discuss what happened to Rome and based on that, what’s likely to happen to the U.S. Spoiler alert: There are some similarities between the U.S. and Rome.

But before continuing, please seat yourself comfortably. This article will necessarily cover exactly those things you’re never supposed to talk about—religion and politics—and do what you’re never supposed to do, namely, bad-mouth the military. Read More

01.04.23- How to Be Your Own Bank: Holding Actual Custody of Your Digital Assets
Ben Bartee

Take warning! If you’re holding your crypto assets on big exchanges like Binance, CoinBase, or Kraken, you’re well-advised to get them off and into a privately-held wallet for a few reasons that we’ll survey here.

I realize a lot of hardened crypto veterans will probably roll their eyes as if to say “duh.” But I didn’t realize this stuff when I got into the uncharted technological territory that is a cryptocurrency, and it has important implications for your financial health. Read More

01.03.23- Predictions –
What Won’t Happen in 2023

John Wilder

“In that time, I have something to say. How long before the Halkan prediction of galactic revolt is realized?” – Star Trek, TOS

I just read that it’s the law that if it’s raining in Sweden you have to have your headlights on.  How am I going to know if it’s raining in Sweden? Read More

01.02.23- It's Not a Lie if You Believe it
Jim Quinn

“The past was erased, the erasure was forgotten, the lie became the truth.” – George Orwell, 1984

“Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth.” ― Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Read More
