  Fairy Tale 
Am I imagining that Oprah Winfrey launched her presidential campaign last night at the Golden Globes Awards? Well, why not? Unlike the Golden Golem of Greatness, skulking fiery and furious in his lonesome White House tweet chamber, Americans of all identity persuasions love Oprah. Unlike the president, who attained “stable [for now] genius” status without ever reading a book, Oprah displays real curiosity about this vexing and wondrous world, and an eagerness to engage with it. Unlike the maestr

  Donald Trump – Modern Day Walpole? 
“Hatred of Walpole was almost the only feeling which was common to them. On this one point they concentrated their whole strength. With gross ignorance, or gross dishonesty, they represented the Minister as the main grievance of the state. His dismissal, his punishment, would prove the certain cure for all the evils which the nation suffered. What was to be done after his fall, how misgovernment was to be prevented in the future, were questions to which there were as many answers as there were n

Thomas Frank Interviews 7 and 8 with Paul Jay on the Real News Network
Here is the two part continuation of the interviews on the Real News Network between Paul Jay and Thomas Frank. Frank has the Clintons nailed, and continues to reiterate the high points of how they led the Democratic Party into an historic betrayal of their base, the working people.  For money and power. However, he is far, far too kind, almost to the point of what can be called a willful bias, to Barack Obama. I am sorry, but can it be more obvious that Obama was a bait-and-switch brand for

What I Learned at the Racial Justice indoctrination Camp 
Several months ago the president of Loyola University Maryland, Brian Linnane, announced to the faculty that he had been thinking a lot about the Baltimore riots that took place two years earlier.  (The riots, you may recall, were a response to the death of a local black drug gangster while in a police van after he had been arrested.  All of the police involved, most of whom were black, were eventually acquitted at trial.  The rioters looted the CVS pharmacies in town, emptying them of oxycodone

Are You Infuriated Yet?
More and more, I'm encountering people who are simply infuriated with how our "leaders" are running (or to put it more accurately, ruining) things right now. And I share that fury. It’s perfectly normal human response to be infuriated when an outside agent hurts you, especially if the pain seems unnecessary, illogical or random. Imagine if your neighbor enjoyed setting off loud explosives at all hours of the day and night. Or if he had a habit of tailgating and brake-checking you every time he s

Art Of The Deal Coauthor Says Trump Will Resign By End Of The Year: “Presidency Is Effectively Over… The Circle Is Closing At Blinding Speed”
Tony Schwartz, the man who co-authored Art of the Deal with Donald Trump in 1987, now says that the President will likely resign before the end of the year. In a series of Tweets earlier this week Schwartz showed his disdain for the President and echoed the sentiments of top Democrats who have claimed that Trump will either be impeached or voluntarily step away from the Presidency: I said some time ago I wasn’t going to tweet about Trump anymore. He hadn’t yet raised the stakes to the point of

“You’re Fired” Trump’s Amazing Presidential Track Record
Before becoming president, Donald Trump had a very popular television program whose main appeal was the popular phrase “You’re Fired!” As president, Trump set an amazing record setting pace of firing top level officials or having them leave just before being fired. Clearly, Trump knows how to fire. He also knows how to provoke officials to resign. Let’s recap. Please consider Casualties of the Trump Administration So Far Reince Priebus, the former White House chief-of-staff, resigned just six

Controversial Alaskan gold mine could be revived under Trump's EPA
The Trump administration has taken a key step toward paving the way for a controversial gold, copper, and molybdenum mine in Alaska's Bristol Bay watershed, marking a sharp reversal from President Barack Obama's opposition to the project. The Environmental Protection Agency today proposed withdrawing its 2014 determination barring any large-scale mine in the area because it would imperil the region's valuable sockeye salmon fishery. The agency said it would accept public comments on the proposal

The Technicolor Swan 
When I think of the Democratic Party these days, the image instantly comes to mind of little Linda Blair playing the demon-possessed child in the classic horror movie, The Exorcist (1973), most particularly the scene in which she spews a stream of pea soup-like projectile vomit into the face of kindly old Max von Sydow, as Father Merrin, the priest come to rescue her. The pea soup represents the sort of ideology that the Democratic Party has spewed out in recent years — a toxic mush of racial id

Pension Funds, Sovereign Wealth Funds, Central Banks “Stock Up” on Gold “Amid Uncertainty”
Pension Funds, Sovereign Wealth Funds and Central Banks “Stock Up” on Gold “Amid Uncertainty” By Attracta Mooney Financial Times, London Sunday, June 11, 2017 The gold reserves of the world’s biggest public sector investors reached an 18-year high as they hoarded the precious metal after Donald Trump’s election and the Brexit vote added to geopolitical uncertainty. State investors increased their net gold holdings by 377 tonnes to an estimated 31,000 tonnes last year — the highest level since 1

The Trump Train-Wreck
Interested in precious metals investing or storage? Contact usHERE The Trump Train-Wreck Written by Jeff Nielson (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL) Is Donald Trump the least-intelligent President in the history of the United States? We will never know, since U.S. presidents don’t have to pass I.Q. tests – they just have to win popularity contests. Of course the word “win” requires an asterisk. In the United States Two-Party Dictatorship, presidents aren’t elected, they are chosen. They are chosen

3 Growth? Really?!
In Trump Plans to Slash Spending by $3.6 Trillion, Increase Military Spending, Balance the Budget in 10 Years I gave my three primary reasons 3% growth will be extremely difficult to achieve. Greg Ip, my favorite Wall Steet Journal commentator, also provides a set of reasons why Trump’s 3% Growth Target Looks Out of Reach. Mr. Trump—moving in the opposite direction of President Barack Obama —promises lower taxes and less regulation, which should increase business investment and thus worker prod

Is Macron the Anti-Trump, European Obama?
Judging from the political reaction to Emanuel Macron’s French election victory, one might be wondering if Macron is the anti-Trump or if this is the Second Coming. Eurointelligence Explains Emmanuel Macron was elected with 66.06% over 33.94% for Marine Le Pen, according to the latest figures. With Macron, the French chose the anti-Trump: a young, pro-European reformer, who never held elected office before. Macron proved the impossible, and this in itself is inspiring. The message is one of hop

Apple Announces $1 Billion Fund For U.S. Manufacturing Jobs - Is $230 Billion Repatriation Deal Next?
Yesterday in an interview with CNBC's Jim Cramer, Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook said the tech giant would be devoting $1 billion to promote "advanced manufacturing" jobs in the United States. "We're announcing it today. So you're the first person I'm telling," Cook told "Mad Money" host Jim Cramer on Wednesday. "Well, not the first person because we've talked to a company that we're going to invest in already," he said, adding that Apple will announce the first investment later in May. -CNBC Tim

Will the Democrats Trigger Another 2011 Debt Ceiling Crisis Just to Stop the Wall?
Do you remember when GOP Senators and Representatives were portrayed as literal monsters for forcing the Government to shut down? We were told back in 2013 that if GOP-lead Congress didn’t keep the Government open… we would face literal Armageddon. A few headlines from that time period: Republicans Shutdown the Government for Nothing (the Atlantic) Like Dr. Frankenstein, the GOP is trapped in a burning windmill with a monster of their own making (Charleston City Paper) Ted Cruz: the GOP’s Self-M

  Krunch Time for Korean Krackpot Despot, Kim Jong-Un: Missile Crisis Countdown Has Begun
The following article by David Haggith was first published on The Great Recession Blog: The Korean missile crisis has never been hotter. Trump is turning the screws on everyone to force action. China, Japan, and South Korea join in threatening Kim Jong-un with imminent war, but North Korea’s crackpot despot isn’t backing down. Trump has dispatched war ships, including the USS Carl Vinson, to North Korea as North Korea continues to show signs that it is preparing to do another nuclear test on Sa

Death Of A Presidency, An Empire, And A Monetary System
I’m 46 years old, and grew up in New York; and thus, know a lot about Donald Trump.  Consequently, if at any time before last summer, you told me he’d one day be President, I would have laughed until I cried.  After all, a man famous for bad marriages; a big, insulting mouth; and massively overleveraged investments in some of the worst imaginable businesses – from Atlantic City casinos, to the United States Football League – was as far from what I’d consider “Presidential material” as I could im

Marine Le Pen-The Potential Brexit Times 100
You want drama. ..and TRUTH?  Well, let’s start with this amazing, must see, three-minute 2009 clip from Ron Paul; or, as I deemed him five years ago, “America’s greatest man.”  Given what I discussed in Friday’s “did America just start World War III”; and yesterday’s “beating of the drums”; it couldn’t be more appropriate – as in it, he asks “what if” America’s foreign policy is misguided; and “what if” it continues down the horrifying road it appears dead set on taking. At this point, I have l
