Outfoxed and conned, part 2

I grew up in Wisconsin and still have warm feelings for the state (where it was recently 26 below zero.) Thus I’m sad to see my concerns about the new Foxconn manufacturing plant come to pass.  Here’s Tim Culpan of Bloomberg: Then-Governor Scott Walker, backed by President Donald Trump, loved exactly what he sold: the promise of thousands of jobs to make stuff in the U.S. Walker loved it so much that he pledged as much as $3 billion in sweeteners, a deal that likely...

The End Of “The End Of History” – US Mid-East Policy’s Fork In The Road

Authored by Tom Luongo, In 1989 Francis Fukayama declared that we had reached “The End of History.”  Democracy as a form of government would, in fact, be the end of the evolution of human interaction.  The West had triumphed and that the rest was ‘just a chase scene,’ to borrow a phrase from Neal Stephenson’s brilliant dystopian novel “Snow Crash.” But, this past week’s events in the Middle East tell me that autocracy has replaced democracy and the trans-national parliamentary system of the...

“China’s Big Reshuffle”: A Preview Of The Year’s Biggest Political Event, China’s 19th Party Congress

Nearly two years after the historic, and still mysterious "Shanghai Accord" which in early 2016 halted what at the time appeared to a global collapse in capital markets courtesy of what appears to have been unprecedented political, fiscal and monetary coordination between the developed world and China, on October 18 the world turns its attention to what is arguably the most important political event of the year, and the logical conclusion to the stabilization process which started with the...

Chris Hedges On The End Of Empire: “The Death Spiral Appears Unstoppable”

Authored by Chris Hedges via TruthDig.com, The American empire is coming to an end. The U.S. economy is being drained by wars in the Middle East and vast military expansion around the globe. It is burdened by growing deficits, along with the devastating effects of deindustrialization and global trade agreements. Our democracy has been captured and destroyed by corporations that steadily demand more tax cuts, more deregulation and impunity from prosecution for massive acts of financial fraud,...

“Dear President Trump: America Is In For A Rude Awakening In January”

Authored by James Rickards via DailyReckoning.com, Dear President Trump, Over the last couple of years I’ve been all over TV… from Fox News to CNBC, CNN and Bloomberg. I’ve been telling our fellow Americans that the financial global elite was planning to issue their own globalist currency called special drawing rights, or SDRs. And that those elites would use this new currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency. I’ve even written about this extensively in my...

Is This The Global Elites’ Secret Plan For Cryptocurrencies?

Authored by James Rickards via Daily Reckoning blog, Interest in Bitcoin is red hot at the moment. It’s impossible to open a website, listen to a podcast, or watch a video in the financial space without hearing about the meteoric rise in the price of Bitcoin. Maybe you know a “Bitcoin millionaire” who bought five hundred Bitcoins a few years back for $50,000 and is now sitting on a Bitcoin fortune worth over $2,000,000. It’s true, those people actually do exist. Yet the crypto-hysteria is...

The World Is Now $217,000,000,000,000 In Debt And The Global Elite Like It That Way

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog, The borrower is the servant of the lender, and through the mechanism of government debt virtually the entire planet has become the servants of the global money changers.  Politicians love to borrow money, but over time government debt slowly but surely impoverishes a nation.  As the elite get governments around the globe in increasing amounts of debt, those governments must raise taxes in order to keep servicing those debts.  In the...

Russia-Gate Flops As Democrats’ Golden-Ticket

Authored by Robert Parry via ConsortiumNews.com, The national Democrats saw Russia-gate and the drive to impeach President Trump as their golden ticket back to power, but so far the ticket seems to be made of fool’s gold. The national Democratic Party and many liberals have bet heavily on the Russia-gate investigation as a way to oust President Trump from office and to catapult Democrats to victories this year and in 2018, but the gamble appears not to be paying off. A sign at the Women’s...

What Nassim Taleb Can Teach Us

Authored by Jeff Deist via The Mises Institute, Nassim Nicholas Taleb does not suffer fools gladly. Author of several books including The Black Swan and Antifragile, Taleb is known for his incendiary personality almost as much as his brilliant work in probability theory. Readers of his very active Medium page will experience a formidable mind with no patience for trendy groupthink, a mind that takes special pleasure in lambasting elites with no “skin in the game.” “Skin in the game” is a...
