The Never-Ending Wars of the United States of America
A Monday Morning Musing from Mickey the Mercenary Geologist"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefi

Weekend Reading: The Greatest Gifts of All:
How often we are perplexed and distracted by the setbacks and mishaps of life.  How often we may feel that God is distant and uncaring, because He has not given us what we wished to have at that moment, or taken away something that we cherished. We may come to ignore the many good things, the abundance of gifts and tender mercies that are taken for granted, and even greater treasures yet to come, to pursue some passion of the moment, some alluring attractions wrapped in pride, selfishness, and

Is the Coming DHS Biowarfare test on U.S. Citizens a False-Flag Warning
The town of Newkirk, Oklahoma is about to receive a series of “gifts” from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)…in the form of exposing the town to chemical agents. The purpose is to see how much protection is offered by houses and apartments against a bioweapon. It is also to see how first responders will be able to evacuate people and treat those in affected areas. An article written on 12/16/17 by Jay Syrmopoulos for Activist Post entitled Residents Outraged as DHS Spraying Town With Che

Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - The Bubble Has Awakened -
It looks like the pigs in Congress are going to get their 'tax reform' for Christmas. Winning... The various stock and serveral bond markets are in a financial asset bubble, and certain stocks are surging higher in some fairly impressive daily moves based on utter nonsense. Bitcoin and the various related crypto-currency plays are now a bona fide mania. I think this tops the valuations of the worst of the gerbil tossing tech stocks in the internet bubble at the turn of the century. Who wold

Europe, Brexit and the credit cycle 
Europe’s financial and systemic troubles have retreated from the headlines. This is partly due to the financial media’s attention switching to President Trump and the US budget negotiations, partly due to Brexit and the preoccupation with Britain’s problems, and partly due to evidence of economic recovery in the Eurozone, at long last. And finally, anyone who can put digit to computer key has been absorbed by the cryptocurrency phenomenon.Just because commentary is focused elsewhere does not mea

Black Death Warning: The Plague Is Impossible To Eradicate
Face masks are placed on children in Antananarivo, Madagascar (AP Photo/Alexander JOE) An expert is warning the plague that has sickened over 2000 people in Madagascar since August is impossible to eradicate. Even though the number of those infected has dropped in recent weeks, the plague will never truly be gone. Since the airborne version of the plague can kill a person in just three hours, experts warn that its too soon to think that since there hasn’t been a person infected in recent days, t

Fake money has created a totally uneven playing field for most ordinary people. Money used to represent a medium of exchange that would facilitate bartering. Instead of exchanging goods or services, people would receive a piece of paper that was equal to the value of their goods or services. This was initially an honest system when for each service or goods offered there was only one bank note issued. Eventually the banker started to cheat and issued a lot more money/paper than the counter value

The “we” fallacy 
Globalisation, a term that when used in economics refers to the integration of national economies into a global marketplace, is perceived to be part of the reason for economic weakness in some countries. This is a perception that the politically-astute feed upon, often by invoking the “we” fallacy. According to the “we” fallacy, anyone who happens to be located inside an arbitrary border is one of “us” and deserves preferential treatment at the expense of anyone who happens to be located outside

Platinum, The Forgotten Precious Metal-Revisited
My good friend Adam Meister – i.e, the “Bitcoin Meister” of (rapidly increasing) YouTube fame – sagely stated today, “you get rich slowly, and poor quickly” – which goes double for those utilizing traditional valuation metrics in historically manipulated markets.  Fortunately, no financial manipulation, throughout the course of history, has ended well; and now that the “custodians” of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi have reached their ‘trapped rats on a sinking ship’ moment, the “

Stand on Guard for Thee (Canada)
Over the past 40 years, the British Columbia lumber business has always taken great glee in plucking the chin hairs out of Uncle Sam's beard by legislating protection for its markets by way of subsidies and tax credits with political parties catering and pandering to the voting workers in an industry that dominates the provincial workforce ranking second only to agriculture. Each time one of the grey bristles was plucked from that star-spangled beard, the Big Man would flinch and growl and wav

It's an old Wall Street saying that 'bears make money, bulls make money, but pigs get slaughtered.' I think that observation might also apply to those who make public policy, those in the political and professional classes. And brother, they seem to be wanting to go whole hog. I am afraid a lot of people who thought they were going to get one thing and going to get another, and in spades. Well, as noted here often, one makes their choices, and then takes the consequences. Not that I have an

CIA's Creator Came to Regret It ... Said the CIA Was a "Government All Its Own" Which Was Destroying Democracy
President Truman created the CIA. He explained that it was solely an attempt to consolidate intelligence from many different intelligence agencies (page 285): I needed … the President needed at that time a central organization that would bring all the various intelligence reports we were getting in those days, and there must have been a dozen of them, maybe more, bring them all into one organization so that the President would get one report on what was going on in various parts of the world.

Remembering the Genius of Hunter S. Thompson
Being a teenager in the 1960s, my early formative years were all about the Beatles, JFK's assassination, sex, drugs, rock and roll, and hockey, but when it came to entertaining myself, thanks to my mother, who was a voracious reader, I learned to love to read books. I remember the day that Mum handed me Ian Fleming"s "To Russia with Love" and since I was barely into my teens, I think it was the first time I was ever introduced to soft "porn" (which was predominant in all of the Bond books), which may have been Mum's way of quietly giving me a Sex Ed lesson. As I grew older and moved away at 16 to play junior hockey with and against men in their 20s, I would ride the buses between St. Catharines and Ottawa with two or three paperbacks tucked into the zipper compartment of my carry-on bag.

A Pure Regenerative Medicine Play
The promise of regenerative medicine is to treat disease and injury by replacing, regenerating or rejuvenating various parts of the human body that have been damaged by chronic disease, traumatic injury, heart attack, stroke, or aging. Treatments include both in vivo (studies and trials performed inside the living body) and in vitro (treatments applied to the body through implantation of a therapy studied inside the laboratory) procedures. After many years of research the potential for regener

The Soon to Erupt Euro Experiment
The Euro Experiment It was always blatantly clear that an EU monetary union would inevitably require a political union to centralize decisions about tax and public spending. Without this occurring it was a misconceived and terrible blunder (that some of us argued it was when it was initially constructed) but it is turning out to be even worse than we originally perceived because of its underpinning Euro currency. We are now witnessing that the EU experiment has become so damaging and

Criss-Crossed Fuses And Lit Bonfire
Many are the potential fuses to be lit, which would create the conflagration, the massive bonfire of the bond vanities and bank charades. Many are the fuses lying around, all criss-crossed, all exposed, all overlapping each other in highly dangerous manner. If any single fuse is lit, then several will light and the detonation arrives. It is unavoidable since the financial world is so deeply interwoven. Never in modern history has the global financial structure been so badly weakened, so totally
