Budget Issues Return To Spotlight As Next Debt Ceiling Circus Looms
Judging by the fact that you’re reading this, at some point you have probably been concerned about the financial condition of United States government. The publicly stated debt is now over $20 trillion, while Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff pegs the cost of unfunded liabilities at over $222 trillion! Not exactly ideal in an $18 trillion economy. And if there’s an accountant out there who can explain how it’s even feasibly possible that the debt could ever be repaid without default

  A Quandary 
It is the super-duper quandary of the moment: choose between the oafish, charmless, and possibly not-so-stable-genius Leader-of-the-Free-World… and a security state that will do whatever it takes to get rid of him, for instance, engineering a nationwide hysteria over Russia. Has anyone else noticed how odd it is that the so-called “Resistance” has all along included the state security apparatus in its every sordid iteration — the CIA, the NSA, the FBI, and God knows how many others among the tou

  Stormy Weather 
For those of us who are not admirers of President Trump, it’s even more painful to see the Democratic opposition descend into the stupendous dishonesty of the Russian Collusion story. When the intelligentsia of the nation looses its ability to think — when it becomes a dis-intelligentsia — then there are no stewards of reality left. Trump is crazy enough, but the “resistance” is dragging the country into dangerous madness. It’s hard not to be impressed by the evidence in the public record that t

  Happy Landings 
The blow-off orgy in the stock markets is supposedly America’s consolation prize for what many regard as the electoral bad acid trip of the Trump presidency. Sorry to tell you, it’s just another hallucination, something you’re going to have to come down from. Happy landings! While the markets have roared parabolically up, in Technicolor, with sugar-on-top, that ole rascal, Reality, is working some hoodoo in the other rings of this psychedelic circus: namely the dollar and the bond market. The id

  Who Moved My Xanax? 
The moral panic of “the Resistance” is back in DefCon 1 mode overnight just as the righteousness orgasm of the Golden Globe Awards was wearing off. Mr. Trump’s casual question to a couple of Senators vis-à-vis immigration policy — “Why do we want all these people from ‘shithole countries’ coming here?” — pushed the “racism” button at Resistance Central and CNN staged yet another of the orchestrated anxiety attacks it has perfected over the past year. The spotlight in this three-ring circus of pe

  Christmas Story 
For your reading pleasure Mondays and Fridays These are the long, dark hours when cis-hetero white patriarchs sit by the hearth chewing over their regrets for the fading year and expectations for the year waiting to be born. I confess, I like Christmas a lot, Hebrew that I am, perhaps the musical and sensual trappings more than the virgin birth business. Something in my mixed Teutonic blood stirs to the paganism of blazing Yule logs, fragrant fir trees, rousing carols, and snow on snow on snow

“Incestuous, homogeneous fiefdoms of self-proclaimed expertise are always rank-closing and mutually self-defending, above all else.” Glenn Greenwald "For too many of us the political equality we once had won was meaningless in the face of economic inequality.  A small group had concentrated into their own hands an almost complete control over other people's property, other people's money, other people's labor — other people's lives.  For too many of us life was no longer free; liberty no lon

The Old Songs
What if the fun and games of 2017 are over? The hidden message behind the sexual harassment freak show of recent weeks is that nothing else is sufficiently serious to occupy the nation’s attention. We’re living in the Year of Suspended Reality, stuck in the sideshow and missing the three-ring circus next door in the big tent. It probably all comes down to money. Money represents the mojo to keep on keeping on, and there is probably nothing more unreal in American life these days than the way we

"Great Rotation" Ahead; Will it Be Inflationary or Deflationary?
By Gary Tanashian[edit] This article ultimately leans toward the view that the reasons for a rising curve will be inflationary. But I woke up in the middle of the night and my thoughts drifted to the components of the article (yeah, that’s pretty sad, I know), and with further consideration I am leaning toward neutral or even a bit into the deflationary camp. The reasons will be the stuff of another article.Think back to the blaring headlines about the Great Promotion Rotation in the financial m

The End Of The Cycle: “The Government Will Gladly Enter A War To Cleanse The Balance Sheet And Cull The Herd”
In the days following the 241st anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the country is in an even more precarious position than it was in 1776.  We face a situation of a fiat currency about to collapse as the consumer-based economy follows.  Whether orchestrated by our imperialistic government or following actions of a hostile foreign nation (prompted or unprompted) the government will gladly enter a war to “cleanse” the balance sheet and cull the herd.  Concurrently, the

Play Ball! 
Historians of the future, huddled around their goose-fat lamps in muddy woolen cloaks, may cite this as the month that the Kardashian Dreamland formerly known as “The USA” finally lost its collective mind. Submitted for your approval, as the late, great Rod Serling (senator from The Twilight Zone) used to say: this week’s Russia-Russia-Russia hearing on Capital Hill. I caught the final hour of this circus when freshman senator Kamala Harris (D – Cal) was hectoring Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Brandon Smith: “If The Globalists Can’t Kill Us Off Immediately They Will Try To Breed Our Ideas Out After Economic And Social Crisis”
This article was originally published by Brandon Smith of Alt Market Globalists Are Building An Army Of Millennials To Destroy Sovereignty Back in October of 2016 I covered an issue which I have been very concerned with for over a year now. In an article titled Global Elites Are Getting Ready To Blame You For The Coming Financial Crash, I outlined the basis for my belief that Donald Trump would win the U.S. election and why the U.K. Brexit was allowed to meet with success.

Gold Has “Decisive Turn Around” – “Next Stop Is $1,300 Or Higher”James Rickards via Daily Reckoning But the most important development this week may be the one you never heard about on the news or the internet.

Silver: Train Leaving Station Soon! - Gary Christenson
Silver prices are rising along the bottom of a 20 year log scale trend channel (shown later). There are no guarantees in a manipulated paper market, such as COMEX silver, but it is possible that silver prices will collapse further, or more likely, move substantially higher, sooner rather than later. Silver prices COULD fall from their current level of $16 – $17 to under $10. Other events that COULD occur include: You could win the Powerball Lottery. The U.S. congress could balance the bud

Hurricane Bearing Down on the Casino
Daily Reckoning/David Stockman/05-11-17 …Washington will soon become a three-ring circus of investigations of Russia-gate and the “hidden” reasons for Trump’s action. The Imperial City will get embroiled in bitter partisan warfare and the splintering of the GOP between its populist and establishment wings. In that context, what passes for “governance” will be reduced to a moveable Fiscal Bloodbath that cycles between debt ceiling showdowns and short-term continuing resolution extensions. Progres

What you’re seeing in the political miasma of “RussiaGate” is an exercise in nostalgia. Apart from the symbolic feat of getting a “black” president freely elected in 2008 (remember, Mr. Obama is also half-white), the Democratic Party hasn’t enjoyed a political triumph in half a century to match the Watergate extravaganza of 1972-74, which ended in the departure of Mr. Nixon, the designated Prince of Darkness of those dear dead days. Watergate had had a more satisfying finale than The Brides of D

The Ides of March came and went, with the Fed’s “dovish hike” once and for all proving it cares nothing about the economy, and everything about the stock market, and its Wall Street masters.  The following, damning chart of who has benefited from a decade of post-financial crisis Central bank largesse; not including, of course, the vast amount of covert market support – and likely, inside information dissemination – to the Fed’s partners-in-crime, the “too big to fail” banks; whose joint goal is

  Boo Hoo 
America didn’t get what it expected, but perhaps it got what it deserved, good and hard. Daddy’s in the house and he busted straight into the nursery and now the little ones are squalling in horror. Mommy was discovered to be a grifting old jade who ran the household into a slum and she’s been turned out to solemnly await the judgment of the courts, nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The kids on campus have gone temporarily insane over this domesti

Silver Eagle Demand Returns With A Vengeance As Political And Economic Turmoil Increases
U.S. Mint Silver Eagle sales surged in the first half of October due to increased turmoil in the political system and economic markets.  Silver Eagle sales were strong in the first five months of the year, but weakened in the summer due to several factors.One factor was the fall-off in demand by the Authorized Dealers (wholesalers) who had continued to purchase record Silver Eagles in the first part of 2016, even though retail investor demand had softened..  The other factor was a weakening of i
