Five Things Professors Actually Said In 2017

Via Campus Reform, Most Americans expect college professors to be beacons of knowledge and wisdom, or at least to exercise more maturity than their teenage students. Every year, however, Campus Reform comes across professors who unashamedly make outrageous, preposterous, and downright absurd remarks in their classrooms and on social media, denigrating conservatives and their viewpoints. In 2017, President Trump’s first year in the Oval Office...

How To Survive Today’s Bubbly Market

Authored by James Rickards via Bonner & Partners, To paraphrase one of the great gems of Wall Street wisdom, “Nothing infuriates a man more than the sight of other people making money.” That’s a pretty good description of what happens during the late stage of a stock market bubble. The bubble participants are making money (at least on a mark-to-market basis) every day. Meanwhile, the more patient, prudent investor is stuck on the sidelines – allocated to cash or low-risk investments while...

Zuesse: Americans Are Only Now Beginning To Learn They Live In A Dictatorship

Authored by Eric Zuesse via The Strategic Culture Foundation, The first time when it became clear to me that I live in a dictatorship was in 2014 when reading, prior to its publication, the landmark (and still the only) scientific empirical study to address the question as to whether or not the United States federal Government is, authentically, a democracy — or, whether, alternatively, it's instead more of a dictatorship, than a democracy. This study documented conclusively that America's...

Is The FBI An Enemy Of Freedom?

Authored by Scot McPherson via The Future of Freedom Foundation, Former FBI special agent Clint Watts has responded to tweets from President Trump critical of the FBI by branding the president an “enemy of the state.” Watts claims Trump’s tweets will “sow doubt” and “hurt” the abilities of the FBI, “so he is an enemy of the state whenever he is pushing against the FBI in that way,” he concluded. With the possible exception of the BATFE, it would be hard to imagine an entity within the...

All Of A Sudden, Fascists Are Everywhere In Italy

Via GEFIRA, Headlines were made in Italy a few days ago when a “casual, unidentified photographer” happened to walk in the streets of Florence and had the uncanny ability of taking a snapshot of an inside wall of the Carabinieri barracks that are literally steps away from the city center. The flag was not hanging outside a window, as it was inside the private dormitory of military personnel, but it could be partially visible from the outside as the window was open. The...

Oil Producers Turning To Crypto To Solve Sanctions Problems

Authored by Tom Luongo, Last week, Venezuela announced it would develop a national cryptocurrency backed by its oil reserves, the Petro.  Now there is a report that Russia is considering the same thing.  Iran will likely follow suit. As of right now this is just a rumor, but it makes some sense.  So, let’s treat this rumor as fact for the sake of argument and see where it leads us. The U.S. continues to sanction and threaten all of these countries for daring to challenge the global status...

“It’s A Crisis Situation”: One Chart Explains Why Obamacare Is Locked In An Inescapable Death Spiral

Ever since it was signed into law in 2010, defenders of Obamacare have dismissed staggering surges in annual premiums by highlighting only the rates paid by those fortunate enough to receive subsidies.  In fact, last year we wrote about Marjorie Connolly's, from Obama's Department of Health and Human Services, response to the Tennessee insurance commissioner's fear that the exchanges in his state were "very near collapse" after a staggering 59% premium surge: “Consumers in Tennessee...

Federal Reserve Created Bitcoin and Other Percolating Bubbles – Michael Carino, Greenwich Endeavors

The Federal Reserve’s tools for achieving its dual mandate of low inflation and full employment manipulate interest rates and therefore markets.  This manipulation of rates reverberates globally. Their manipulation historically had been more light handed and invisible to most of the public.  However, over the last decade, their impact on interest rates and yield levels have been the most dramatic in the history of the Federal Reserve.  Whenever you have policies that are extreme, it is best...
