12.07.22- It’s a Conspiracy!
James Rickards

I work hard to avoid promoting conspiracy theories. They’re too easy to adopt as explanations for all sorts of strange events and are highly implausible in most cases.

They require extreme amounts of intelligence, coordination and competence that, quite frankly, the alleged conspirators simply aren’t capable of.

Usually, stupidity is a perfectly good explanation especially when it comes to politicians and other public officials. Read More

12.06.22- Entering the Superbubble’s Final Act
Jeremy Grantham

Only a few market events in an investor’s career really matter, and among the most important of all are superbubbles. These superbubbles are events unlike any others: while there are only a few in history for investors to study, they have clear features in common.

One of those features is the bear market rally after the initial derating stage of the decline but before the economy has clearly begun to deteriorate, as it always has when superbubbles burst. This in all three previous cases recovered over half the market’s initial losses, luring unwary investors back just in time for the market to turn down again, and the economy to weaken. Read More

12.05.22- 1 big thing: Crypto taxes are complicated
Emily Peck

The world of crypto is a new frontier for a host of government agencies — and the IRS is no exception. 

Why it matters: Though changes are happening slowly, the agency’s trying to make sure that Americans who dabble in digital assets pay their fair share of taxes — while other regulators grapple with the more existential questions of crypto’s place in our financial system. Read More

12.03.22- Weekend Rant: Sorry, Russia's Winning the War
Jim Rickards

Here’s the mainstream narrative:The status of the war in Ukraine is best understood as a competition between the narrative and reality. The narrative consists of what you hear from mainstream media, the White House, the Pentagon and official sources in the U.K., France, Germany and both EU and NATO headquarters in Brussels.

The reality consists of what’s actually going on based on the best available sources. Let’s consider the narrative first. Read More

12.02.22- Winter in Central Europe
and for the dollar

Alasdair Macleod

In this article I examine the current state of the fight for hegemonic control between America on the one side, and Russia and China on the other. It is being fought on two fronts. Ukraine, the one in plain sight, is about to endure a winter without power and adequate food potentially leading to a humanitarian crisis.

The other front is financial with America facing a coordinated attack by Russia and China on its dollar hegemony. The Russians are planning a replacement trade settlement currency, which if it succeeds, could unleash a flood dollars onto the foreign exchanges. Read More

12.01.22- Global Government vs. the People
Doug Casey

International Man: During the Covid hysteria, almost every country had invasive entry or travel requirements associated with testing or vaccination status.

Canada, Australia, and some EU countries rolled out a vaccine passport.

What type of precedent did this set for international travel in the future?

Doug Casey: The disastrous COVID “pandemic” itself was highly suspicious. In fact, that’s a gross understatement; it’s beyond suspicious. From the very beginning, the responses of the “authorities” were orchestrated. Read More

“Blowout” Numbers

Jim Rickards

It’s official — good times are here again!

Black Friday’s sales set a new record this year, up 2.3% over 2021. Thanksgiving online sales were also up 2.9%. So don’t listen to any gloom and doom talk about a recession. Just look at the numbers.

That’s what they’ll tell you. Well, here’s what they won’t tell you:

All of those sales figures are nominal. In other words, they don’t account for inflation. Read More

“Sooner or later, there will be push-back against the Dems attempt to turn the USA into some kind of obese transgender liberal Wakanda run by crooks, freaks and thugs.” —The Vineyard of The Saker

The really stunning thing about Elon Musk’s campaign to clean up the back-stage rats’ nest at Twitter is that he’s the lone authority figure in the land who dared to act against the degenerate political Left’s impudent and remorseless cancellation of everything that held together America’s consensual reality.

Joe Jarvis

Walking into a hospital sounds about as much fun to me as being mugged in an alley.

And if I were to go to a US hospital, I suspect the outcome to my wallet would be about the same as getting mugged.

Instead, I opted to dip my feet into the world of medical tourism.

Kathleen Marquardt

But you tell me

Over and over and over again, my friend

How you don’t believe

We’re on the eve of destruction

Today, we are under enormous pressures to replace our political, educational, and religious (social) structures that were set up to protect the individual, to educate our children with the necessary knowledge, and give them the ability to understand and contribute to the continuation of our way of a life of liberty. Yet this pressure toward a negative change has been on-going for decades. Today, we are seeing what seems to be the last “push”, the tipping point from freedom to Marxism – all in the desire for a one-world tyranny. What is quite obvious is that this is not from “the will of the people” but is being thrust upon us and secretly has been in the works for too long. Read More

11.15.22- How Electronic Voting Machines Cheat and What to Do About This
Dr Naomi Wolf

We think of the secret ballot as being fundamental to our rights, and indeed to our democratic system, and in many ways that belief is correct. Or it certainly would be correct, if those secret ballots were cast in a verifiable, accurately- tabulating voting system.

But the secret ballot became a sacred aspect of elections, in the days when ballots were cast in boxes, using paper. There was little risk run by those who cherished the secrecy of their choices in such a system, because the ballots could always be recounted. They were physical artefacts. They either existed or they did not. Read More

Christine Anderson: A member of the European Parliament. She represents the Alternative for Germany (AfD), which is labelled as a “populist political party” in Germany. AfD is known for its opposition to the European Union, as well as the open border/immigration to Germany policies which the EU mandates. As she does not believe in open borders, Christine Anderson is labelled with such terms as “far-right,” and “anti-Islamic.” Near as I can tell, these are just more propaganda talking points by Wiki and their ilk.

11.12.22- Regardless Of Party, Pro-Gun Candidates Won Their Races This Week
Alex Madajian

It did not take long for anti-gun activists in the media to make the claim gun control is a winning issue for Democrats, but only if the glaring problems with that picture are ignored.

Abortion, record inflation, large amounts of crime, concerns about democracy, and even climate change and healthcare ranked of higher concern for voters than gun policy according to NBC. Additionally, the New York Times reported last month only 1% of likely voters thought guns were the most important problem. No doubt, if guns were the only issue on the ballot, there would be very different results. Read More

Interview with Václav Klaus

To many of us, no matter how well versed in history, in political affairs or in socioeconomic issues, the present conditions in the West, and especially in Europe, can sometimes seem like the plot of a bad movie. It is often said that history doesn’t repeat itself, but it does rhyme, and what we’re seeing today is a great example of that. Nevertheless, one would have expected that at least some of those in charge of the “big decisions” would have learned something from the mistakes of the past – if not the mistakes of their predecessors, at least their own.

For example, the Federal Reserve as a banking entity has free rein to assert policy controls that can disrupt the very fabric of the US economy and the buying power of our currency. They can (and do) arbitrarily create trillions of dollars from thin air causing inflation, or arbitrarily raise interest rates and crash stock markets. And according to former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan, they answer to no one, including the US government. Read More

Legally reducing your tax bill is the best risk-free return on investment you can make.

Investing in a completely legal tax strategy means keeping 10, 20, even 30% more of your own income.

And in many cases the solutions aren’t especially exotic. For example, if you live in California, you can slash you taxes simply by moving next door to Nevada. Doing so eliminates California state income tax, which kicks in at 9.3% for income over $61,215. Read More

The attendees included Russia, China, India, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Read More

09.20.22- Why the World Economic Forum’s Plutocracy Should Be Dissolved
J.B. Shurk

No matter how noble its stated intentions, the “Great Reset” is at its heart a program for driving political power away from individual citizens and toward the controlling interests of a small international class of financial elites…. For citizens to reclaim power, they must not only embrace the basics of free markets once again but also rekindle a fondness for questioning the motivations of political authorities. Read More

09.19.22- The Weakness Is Broadening Out From Low-Income To Middle-Income Consumers
Tyler Durden

Earlier today, when making a case why the US economy has so far proven highly resilient to the Fed's increasingly shrill attempts to push it into a recession, Morgan Stanley's cross-asset strategist Andrew Sheets said that about half of all the income in the US is earned by households making more than $100,000 per year, and since most of these households own their own homes, and either have no mortgage or have refinanced into a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage at an extremely low rate, it means that the largest expense for these households is not rising even as the Fed is hiking, but their wages are.

09.17.22- Violence In California Reaches “Epidemic” Levels As Our Society Rapidly Deteriorates All Around Us
Michael Snyder

I can’t understand why anyone would still want to live in California.  Yes, there are lots of high paying jobs and the weather is very nice, but crime is completely and utterly out of control.  As you will see below, a new report that has just been issued is warning that violence in the state has now reached “epidemic” levels.  The police are doing what they can to try to contain the violence, but at this point they are vastly outnumbered by the predators.  Sadly, this is the end result of literally decades of cultural rot, and what is happening in California is going to happen to the rest of the nation if we do not take urgent action to turn things around.

09.16.22- How To Acquire Some Of The Best Passports In The World
Simon Black

Having a second passport has always been one of the most powerful tools in a Plan B strategy...

If you are really thinking globally, a second passport (or even third, fourth, etc.) means that you have another option— another countries, or multiple countries, where you can live, work, invest, do business, and bring your family.

Additionally, a second passport is also a valuable travel document that can provide plenty of extra benefit. Read More

Now, since I had to travel to Raleigh to go to the consulate there, I decided to stick around for a few days and check it out. Read More

09.14.22- Forecasting the Midterm Elections
Jim Rickards

There are 435 seats in the House of Representatives (not counting nonvoting seats for D.C. and some U.S. possessions) and all of them are up for election in November. Right now, the Democrats control the House with 219 Democrats versus 211 Republicans (there are five vacancies).

It takes 218 votes to control the House. This means if the Republicans hold the seats they have and pick up just seven seats from Democrats, they will control the House. Will this happen? The 2022 election cycle is more challenging to predict than usual because it’s the first election since the 2020 Census that the House map had redrawn to reflect population gain or loss on a state-by-state basis.

09.13.22- What Would Be the Aftermath of a Globalist Failure?
Jeff Thomas

In a previous article, Will Globalism Succeed, I described the likelihood of the success of the globalist plan to take over the world.

My take on the question is that the plan will fail.

But why should that be? Well let’s have a look at it.

First, we should recognize that, in any society, roughly 4% of all people are sociopathic and 1% are likely to be psychopathic. I won’t go into the definitions of these two terms, but the primary symptoms of both are as follows: Read More

Brandon Smith

For many years now I have been examining the policies and behaviors of the Federal Reserve because they are in fact the most powerful institution in the US, with far more influence over the fate of America than any single president or branch of government. They have the power to end the economic life of our country in a matter of moments. They hold their finger on the button of multiple financial nuclear bombs, and to this day there are people that still pretend as if they are a mere moderating presence subservient to the White House or Congress.

Only then, will the western end of the Eurasian continent be truly free of American interference.

Their reasons for doing so are effectively reducible to two basic points: (1) cashlessness puts all their activities and transactions behind a one-way mirror, as Catherine Fitts likes to say, i.e., the central banksters get to continue their financial tricks, insider trading, skimming frauds, robo-mortgages, and so on, without any possibility of exposure.

08.09.22- Collapse Won’t Just Reset Society,
It Will Destroy It

Brittany Smith and Joseph Wayne Smith

The collapse of techno-industrial civilization is likely to occur on the present business-as-usual mode of social functioning, probably by 2030, but there are scenarios where it could be before Christmas 2022, if the West and Russia slide into nuclear war; that is our position, supported here. This article is a response to Adam Van Buskirk’s paper “Collapse Won’t Reset Society” (Van Buskirk, 2022), who argues that collapse does not lead to the Mad Max/zombie apocalypse scenario, even in the case of all-out nuclear war. We could not disagree more; hence this response. But the Van Buskirk article is typical of “normie” responses to the confrontation with civilizational collapse, so it is instructive to critique his article as a sample of a general pattern of thought. Read More

08.08.22- The Rise Of "Constitutional Carry" Is A Sign Of Failing Trust In Government
Ryan McMaken

Come next January, Alabama will be the 25th state to allow the carrying of concealed weapons without a permit. Alabama will soon join Indiana which in March of this year passed a new statute allowing permitless concealed carry in that state—sometimes called "constitutional carry." In 2021 alone, at least six states passed their own provisions legalizing permitless concealed carry: Arkansas, Iowa, Montana, Tennessee, Texas, and Utah. Essentially, any law-abiding citizen over a certain age (usually 18 or 21 years of age) can now carry a concealed firearm in these states. 20 years ago, only Vermont allowed unrestricted concealed carry. Beginning ten years ago, however, more than twenty states adopted new laws deregulating the carrying of firearms. Read More

The failure of law enforcement at all levels — local, state and federal — to protect 19 children who were slaughtered by a madman in Uvalde, Texas, in May has raised serious questions about the role of police in our once-free society. Admittedly, the Uvalde case was extreme, as 376 armed police officers did little or nothing to stop the slaughter perpetrated by one madman. There was no command and control; the decisions made on the scene were chaotic and farcical; and the essence of what law enforcement did was to shield itself from harm, rather than stop the harm.

Can you imagine what it would be like to literally starve to death?  Most Americans believe that if a nuclear war with Russia actually happens the vast majority of the U.S. population will be instantly wiped out.  But that is not what the science says.  What the studies have shown is that only about 20 percentof the U.S. population will be instantly killed during a nuclear exchange.  If you live near a military base or some other highly strategic target you will probably be among that 20 percent.  Otherwise, it is likely that you will starve to death during the horrifying “nuclear winter” that follows.Read More

07.06.22- Biden Moving to Close Largest Oil Field In US, Accounting for 40% of All Domestic Production
Daniel

Most market participants have been surprised by the last six months. The total return of the US Treasury Index was the worst since 1788 according to Deutsche Bank.

Stocks closed June with one of the largest corrections since 2008. Bonds and equities are falling in unison, driven by rate hikes and normalization of monetary policy. Read More

07.05.22- The Founders Loved Jury Trials. Almost No One Gets One Anymore.
Billy Binion

John Adams called jury trials part of the "heart and lungs of liberty." Today, defendants are often punished for exercising that very right.

What is the Sixth Amendment? Read More

07.04.22- Is There Hope for the US?
Jeff Thomas

For the entire lives of anyone under the age of seventy-five, the US has been at the top of the heap in almost every way. For decades, it had greater freedom, greater prosperity and higher production than any other country in the world. America was a cornucopia – the centre for innovation and trends in technology, the arts and social development. And today, many Americans, even if they complain about changes for the worse in their country, come back quickly to say, “This is still the greatest country in the world.” Or, “Everybody is still trying to come here.” Read More

07.02.22- Independence Day
James Howard Kunstler

Life for us will get simpler, for sure, but it doesn’t have to be a trip back to the eleventh century….

The Party of Chaos is draping its narrow shoulders in black crepe this Fourth of July, putting on funereal airs, which is actually just another cynical act in their remorseless performance of pretending to care about our country, as everything they touch goes to shit, blood, and ruin. Anything not that, they would like you believe, is “right-wing extremism” and “domestic terrorism.” Such as reminding your fellow citizens that there’s an upside to the rule-of-law and free speech, two niceties of the constitution the Party of Chaos is working hard to dispose of.

07.01.22- A quarter of Americans open to taking up arms against government, poll says
The Guardian

Survey of 1,000 registered US voters also reveals that most Americans agree government is ‘corrupt and rigged’

More than one quarter of US residents feel so estranged from their government that they feel it might “soon be necessary to take up arms” against it, a poll released on Thursday claimed. Read More

06.30.22- Social Security to Be Drastically Cut, Here’s When
Peter Reagan

Retirement security is an important concept. Unfortunately, corporate media spin and politicians who like to meddle with retirement plans muddy the definition and obscure exactly what it means.

For example, one of the more recent attempts by lawmakers to meddle with retirement was a piece of legislation known in the media as SECURE 2.0. Read More

06.29.22- The Time of Our Time
James Howard Kunstler

Let’s face it: most people will not read Justice Alito’s carefully crafted arguments about what the constitution says or doesn’t say about abortion, or the meaning of “ordered liberty” through our history. We do not live in history. We live in the time of our time. And, until just recently, this has been a time that discarded former modes of conduct between men, women, and children as inconvenient to the presumably greater project of self-actualization.

06.28.22- Concurrent deflation and hyperinflation will ravage the world
Egon von Greyerz

FLATION will be the keyword in coming years. The world will simultaneously experience 
inFLATION,

deFLATION

stagFLATION and eventually  hyperinFLATION.

I have forecasted these FLATIONARY events, which will hit the world in several articles in the past. Here is a link to an article from 2016. Read More

06.27.22- The Deeply Satisfying Destruction of the Ruling Elite
Scott McKay

They’ve earned every humiliation that’s coming to them.

In February, far-left San Francisco underwent a political shock quite appropriate to a city used to the ground shifting under its feet. But the recall election in which three members of the local school board were blown out of office should be reverberating across the country as a warning of a massive earthquake to come. Read More

06.25.22- The Drumbeat Morphs
Robert M. Hamburger

In my March 18, 2021 post I suggested that we might be up to as many as four “vaccine” doses by September 2022. The FDA beat my prediction by six months, approving the fourth dose on March 25, 2022. Four doses ... because the first three did not do what was represented.

At first they (pharmaceuticals, government, media) told us that two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna products, or one of the Johnson & Johnson product, would prevent infection and stop transmission. With a mere six months of testing before administering the still experimental drug to the general population, the FDA and the mRNA injection manufacturers had no way of knowing how quickly the effectiveness would wane.

06.24.22- Exile On Main Street - The Sound Of The Unipolar World Fading Away
Pepe Escobar

The future world order, already in progress, will be formed by strong sovereign states. The ship has sailed. There’s no turning back.

Let’s cut to the chase and roll in the Putin Top Ten of the New Era, announced by the Russian President live at the St. Petersburg forum  for both the Global North and South.

The era of the unipolar world is over. Read More

06.23.22- The Triumph of Death
Chris Hedges

It is hard to be sanguine about the future. The breakdown of the ecosystem is well documented. So is the refusal of the global ruling elite to pursue measures that might mitigate the devastation. We accelerate the extraction of fossil fuels, wallow in profligate consumption, including our consumption of livestock, and make new wars as if we are gripped by a Freudian death wish. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse – Conquest, War, Famine and Death – gallop into the 21st century. Read More

06.22.22- From the Eccles Building to Vegas: The Fed Enables the Worst Ponzi Schemes
Douglas French

It seems a short leap from Robinhood or Coinbase to a Ponzi scheme. “Investing is simple here,” Robinhood’s website leads. “Start building your portfolio with just $1.” Scroll down a bit on coinbase.com, and it says, “Take control of your money.” Charles Ponzi himself, called “a wizard of finance” in 1920, was “the discoverer of wealth and happiness.” Common folk cheered the dapper five-foot, two-inch Italian while lining up, desperate to hand Ponzi their savings and earn a 50 percent return in forty-five days.

06.21.22- Why one of the wealthiest empires in history disintegrated in 17 years
Simon Black

On June 17, 1631, the 38-year old chief consort of Shah Jahan, head of the Mughal Empire, was giving birth to their 14th child in the central Indian city of Burhanpur.

It had been a long and extremely difficult labor– more than 30 hours in total. But the consort persisted and gave birth to a healthy baby girl. The consort herself, unfortunately, succumbed to uncontrollable postpartum bleeding, and she passed away that same day.Read More

06.20.22- Stupid is as Stupid Does
Brian Wilson

There are reasons a’plenty how and why Republicans have earned the title “Stupid Party”. Their motto is similarly appropriate: “We never pass up an opportunity to pass  up an opportunity!” With the mid-terms rapidly approaching, elected, appointed, former and wanna-be Elephants have taken to print and air to add another merit badge to their collection of Dimwittery.

06.18.22- If The Streets Of America Are This Chaotic Now, What Will They Be Like When Things Really Start Hitting The Fan?
Michael Snyder

If you are not alarmed by what is happening to our largest cities, you should check to see if you still have a pulse.  Once upon a time, the beautiful new cities that our forefathers constructed were the envy of the entire planet, but now many of them have degenerated into crime-infested hellholes that are absolutely teeming with violent predators.  Shoplifting has essentially become a national pastime, open air drug markets operate freely right under the noses of indifferent authorities, and addicts pull down their pants and take a dump whenever and wherever they feel like doing so.

06.17.22- The Citizenry’s Willingness to Surrender their Freedoms Risks a Potential Dissolution or Civil War
Steve McCann

Over the past two decades, far too many citizens of the United States have willingly surrendered their rights and freedoms and now they are on the cusp of being unrestorable.  This erosion and voluntary forfeiture have empowered the ruling elites/radical left.  Ominous societal conditions have been created that risk national dissolution or a civil war.

Three events in the past twenty-one years have been the primary catalysts that have accelerated and exacerbated this seemingly irreversible outcome. Read More

06.16.22- These People Never Learn
Jim Rickards

Here’s the good news: The stock market didn’t lose nearly as much today as it did yesterday. The Nasdaq even posted a 19-point gain.

Of course the Dow still lost another 151 points and the S&P lost another 14. The S&P slipped into bear market territory yesterday, which doesn’t bode well for the economy. Read More

06.15.22- If you are Leveraged,
get Unleveraged or Lose it all

Bob Moriarty

I have been predicting an instant replay of both 2008 and 1929 for months. It is clearly here. 

This is the monster crash I was calling for all of last year. I want to be 100% up front, if you are holding any leveraged position in anything, get out of it or you are going to lose everything. We are in a giant liquidity event. It is going to get far worse. Read More

06.14.22- Preparing for the Reality
of Financial Collapse

Dr. Joseph Mercola

Financial experts and insiders have, for well over a decade, warned that a collapse of the U.S. currency is a mathematical inevitability, and this collapse will have global ramifications, as the dollar is the world’s reserve currency

U.S. inflation is currently at 8.3%, but in some markets, it’s in the double digits. Used car sales, for example, have seen an inflation rate of 22.7% in the past 12 months. Globally, food prices increased by 29.8% between April 2021 and April 2022 Read More

J. Kim

and a sneak preview of the coming next big global crisis, courtesy of the New World Order

If you reference these commodity charts of soaring inflation I produced nearly a year ago, I illustrated that year over year, in mid-2021, corn had already nearly doubled in price and wheat had soared almost 40%. This was well before any of the bankers started blaming Russia for soaring wheat and corn staples because of the Russia invasion of Ukraine at the end of February of this year.

06.11.22- A Call To Arms: Teachers In Conservative States Are Volunteering
To Carry Guns

Darlene MCormick Sanchez

Crosses and flowers laid out in the public square of the grief-stricken town Uvalde, where a teen gunman killed 19 students and two teachers, are an all-too-familiar scene igniting a call to arms for teachers in Texas and beyond.

The Republican-led Texas legislature is addressing the twin issues of school safety and mass violence following the May 24 Uvalde, Texas, school shooting. Committees of lawmakers are reviewing past legislative efforts, such as the Guardian and Marshal programs that allow teachers to carry firearms in the hopes of hardening schools as targets.

06.10.22- Eyes Wide Shut
Ted Butler

Paul Krugman, the economist whose work you either love or hate, had a compelling editorial this week in the NY Times, titled, “From the Big Short to the Big Scam”, in which he compared the real estate bubble of 2006 and subsequent crash to cryptocurrencies today. Because the article was behind a subscription paywall, I’ll not link it here, and my purpose today is not to agree nor disagree with Krugman’s connection of the real estate bubble/bust to crypto’s, but to bring out a most astute observation he made.

06.09.22- Inflation Will Price Many Americans Into Homelessness
Brandon Smith

One of the most detrimental aspects of an inflationary or stagflationary crisis is that, in most cases, housing costs tend to rise while home sales fall.

It might seem counterintuitive; one would assume that as sales fall so should prices, but this is the upside-down world of inflation. Certain commodities and products, usually necessities, almost always skyrocket in price, ultimately driving most American families out of the market completely. Read More

06.08.22- Democrats, MSM And DOJ Drop Bombshell On Themselves And Their Last Shred Of Credibility, Proving Gargantuan Cover-Up Of 'Clinton Dead Pool' And Jeffrey Epstein Client List
Hailey Sanibel

‘Mysteriously Dead Bodies’ Keep Following ‘Hill And Bill’ Wherever They Go!

ANP: With the recent revelations that the ‘suicide‘ of former top Bill Clinton advisor, Mark Middleton, who died at the age of 59 on May 7th, was accomplished by Middleton HANGING HIMSELF in a tree before releasing a shotgun blast into his own body. Read More

06.07.22- Swamp Gas
James Howard Kunstler

Consider that, if nothing else, John Durham knows a lot more about all this business, and that might include some things that we don’t know….

On Monday, Michael Sussmann, Esq., was released like an undersized crawdad  back into the fetid waters of the DC swamp by a jury of his peers — meaning fellow DNC contributors — despite compelling evidence of his guilt. Special Counsel John Durham took the loss with stoical equanimity, leading some to suspect that he was in on yet another ritual humiliation for the out-group of Americans who might call themselves We-the-Not Insane.

06.06.22- What’s Really Behind The Left's Agenda To Disarm Americans Should Alarm Us To The Core! Look At What They Are Willing To Do To Kill Children, Consider What They Are Willing To Do To Us
Mike Whitney

In a perfect world, evil would not exist and no one would ever be murdered in so abhorrent, horrific manners as we regularly witness. Life would be wonderful and rosy and everyone would love one another, but the world we have is far from perfect and people die every day, sometimes in most horrible ways that make one shudder. We cannot let our fear of death move us to make our world so safe and secure that we relinquish and abandon every last vestige of our freedom and individual liberty. Read More

06.04.22- The Value of High Costs
Michael Maharrey

Among the great pleasures of mastering the economic way of thinking is the access one gains to a stream of intriguing surprises. Without doubt, the most famous and important of these surprises is the understanding that productive economic order can arise without anyone planning such an order. In a reasonably well-functioning system of private property rights, each person’s pursuit of his or her own individually chosen goals contributes to a pattern of resource use that better enables the satisfaction of the individually chosen goals of countless strangers.

06.03.22- Is “Normalcy Bias” Blinding Us to the Looming Economic Storm?
Michael Maharrey

Average people are worried about the economy.Consumer confidence has been falling. People undoubtedly feel the squeeze of inflation. But despite their general discontent, most people don’t seem to think a severe economic downturn is imminent - despite many warning signs. Read More

06.02.22- The Bright Side for Investors
Brian Maher

“A man with money meets a man with experience,” begins an old Wall Street chestnut, concluding that:

“The man with the experience leaves with the money, while the man with money leaves with experience.”

We hazard that many moneyed men — flush with stock market winnings and faith in the Federal Reserve’s backstopping — have met experienced men recently. Read More

06.01.22- If We Are to Survive We Must Learn to Ask the Right Questions
Paul Craig Roberts

Reading Ngaio Marsh’s Scales of Justice I realized that the word, “impertinence” has gone out of use.  Indeed, what was once an outrage is now so common that no one recognizes it as impertinence.

Impertinence has become accepted routine behavior and is no longer recognized when it occurs. Read More
