Were Americans ever fit for stateless government? 
Jacob Hornberger recently posted an article discussing his reasons why he considers the advent of the US national security state to be the worst thing the government has ever done.Bad as they are, the income tax, the federal reserve act, and government schooling don’t come close.His reason: The US national security state has “the power to kill Americans (and others) without risk of any criminal or civil liability. . . . All that US officials have to do is relate the killing to ‘national security

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.com Monitor Releases Simulation Of What Nuclear Explosion Near North Korea Would Look Like A scientist tasked with monitoring the proliferation of nuclear weapons has published what he described as a “rough simulation” of what would happen if North Korea follows through with threats to test a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean. The upshot of the simulation – which was published by Lassina Zerbo, the head of the Comprehensive Nu

What if some like-minded people on ZeroHedge decided to create a new community?
“Community is not something you have, like pizza. Nor is it something you can buy. It's a living organism based on a web of interdependencies- which is to say, a local economy. It expresses itself physically as connectedness, as buildings actively relating to each other, and to whatever public space exists, be it the street, or the courthouse or the village green.”  -James Howard KunstlerThe Geography of Nowhere: The Rise and Decline of America's Man-Made Landscape I have mentioned before that

September News Recap: THE FEDERAL RESERVE met and talked. The unofficial statement issued after their meeting was, “Yada, Yada, Yada.” Their statement was translated by an obscure web site, link unavailable, which interpreted their statement as: “The Federal Reserve along with other important central banks and G-20 nations have created a pyramid of debt. This debt is ever-increasing and will be repaid by issuing new debt. Example:  Issue $2 trillion in new debt to repay $1.5 trillion in old debt

Venezuela Prepares For A War With The United States
The socialist nation of Venezuela has called on its military and asked them to prepare to go to war with the United States. Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro is bracing for war just days after the Trump administration banned Venezuelan officials from entering the nation. “We have been shamelessly threatened by the most criminal empire that ever existed and we have the obligation to prepare ourselves to guarantee peace,” said Maduro, who wore a green uniform and a military hat as he spoke with

  The Truth About War and the State 
Not long ago I was thinking about the legacy of Murray N. Rothbard, the brilliant scholar and the creator of the libertarian movement, as well as a dear friend to both Ron and me. Would that movement have come into existence without Murray? I don’t think so. And whatever might have developed in its place would undoubtedly have been less pro-peace, and more willing to reach an accord with the warfare st

Vanishing Vix Musical Tribute
Nothing seems to phase the stock market for more than a day or two. Despite North Korea, hurricanes, poor earnings, and poor retail sales numbers, it’s tough to get a sustained rise out of the S&P 500 volatility index VIX. I present a chart and a musical tribute to celebrate this phenomenon. Weekly Vix Chart VIX Just Keeps Gettin’ Harder to Find This is a sing-along.

Mises stands between us and 1984 
On this day in 1949 Yale University Press published Ludwig von Mises’s economic treatise, Human Action. Later in 1949 another book appeared, George Orwell’s 1984.  Almost everyone has at least heard of Orwell and 1984.  The same is unfortunately not true of Mises and Human Action. Both books are attached to their authors as if they were extended surnames.  Orwell is 1984, Mises is Human Action.   Among the many who’ve read it, 1984 is regarded as a premonition of what could happen if th

When the United States Owned Most of the Gold on Earth
Few Americans know that, just after World War II, the United States owned most of the gold bullion on earth – about 22,000 metric tonnes. In fact by 1945, it owned over 80% of the gold held by nation-states and central banks – an impressive display of economic power. Now it owns just over 8000 metric tonnes, which repr

Mutiny “For” The Bounty? 
China recently announced they will trade oil for yuan “backed” by gold. The story has gotten some press (none of it mainstream mind you), and many have questions as to what it really means. While quite complicated as a whole, when you break this down into pieces I believe it is a quite simple and logical end to Bretton Woods. For a background, China has had an exchange open for about a year where gold can be pu

Copper, Oil, Gold and US Stocks: Big Picture Status
By Gary TanashianSometimes I like to trot these lumbering monthlies out so we can quiet everything down and see where various markets are slowly heading.First of all, as I go down with my ‘strengthening US dollar’ ship*, I also mal-projected copper’s upside. I’d felt that $3/lb. would cap Doctor Copper because it is very clear lateral resistance at a handy 38% Fib retrace.*** Well, insofar as I own UUP and EUO, it has not been fruitful; but that is the whole point because the positions are just

And Peace At the Last
May the Lord support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in your mercy, grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last. John Henry Newman Out of the images and the shadows into the light. See you next week.

Hidden Forces of Economics, Gold Silver Report 27 Aug 2017
We have noticed a proliferation of pundits, newsletter hawkers, and even mainstream market analysts focusing on one aspect of the bitcoin market. Big money, institutional money, public markets money, is soon to flood into bitcoin. Or so they say. We will not offer our guess as to whether this is true. Instead, we want to point out something that should be self-evident. If big money is soon to come in, and presumably drive the price up to whatever new height—perhaps even the magic $1,000,000—what

IS AMERICA A DANGEROUS NATION?
“America is now a dangerous nation.” This is the title of an article written by the journalist Gideon Rachman in the Financial Times last week. He goes on to declare: “Under Donald Trump, America looks like a dangerous nation.” As I stated in my KWN article last week, the risk of a major war is now very high. The dilemma is that this is just one of many problems with potentially catastrophic consequences that the world is currently facing. Looking at total global risk, the current situation is p

Debt, Dollars, DOW, War, Silver, and Shirts
Yes, they are connected. Dollars are created as debt. More dollars in circulation = more debt. More debt means consumption is “pulled forward” from the future so consumption can occur now. This usually ends badly. Commercial banks and central banks have created trillions of new dollars. Each new dollar devalues every other dollar currently in circulation, in savings, and in pension accounts. Prices rise! Wars are costly, kill people and produce little. Governments like wars because t
