Myopic Metals and Miner Miasma
In recent day and weeks, I have slowly moved to the starboard side of the "Vessel of Public Opinion" where most seasoned veterans (aka "old guys") usually wind up; that is to say that I am now officially "cynical" when it comes to the world of investing. Residing in cynicism usually has a few distinct advantages with one being the uncanny ability to have your "bullsh*t meter" on at all times while one glaring disadvantage is that you miss opportunities you might have taken when you were young(er

The Coming Battery Bonanza
James Dines, author of The Dines Letter, discusses the importance of graphite in the manufacture of lithium-ion batteries and highlights one graphite company he expects to have an edge. Lithium Batteries for Autos and Home Storage Someday, as sneaky years whisper past, batteries will be seen to have been a crucial wave of the investing future. Uses for lithium ion batteries (LIB) are expanding and will be the main technology for mobility and stationary

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

Crisis On The Horizon: Will It Be Economic Collapse? Global Civil Unrest? War? We Won’t Have To Guess Much Longer…
“Never let a crisis go to waste.”  -Rahm Emmanuel The algorithm is simple: Governments coerce their pet monkeys to pay taxes into the system – the self-perpetuating machine – and thereby the monkeys become the very sources of funding to build, equip, staff, and enforce their own incarceration. There are too many individuals with dreams, plans, goals, and ambitions for themselves and their families.  There is too much individualism.  It eventually must be crushed, in order to maintain the existin

Goldman Sachs ‘Discovers’ that the ‘not-so-USFed’ has Caused Most Recessions
One week ago, Deutsche Bank issued a loud warning that as a result of the aging of the current economic expansion, now the third longest in history at 32 quarters, if with the lowest average growth rate of just 2%… …. coupled with the collapse in the yield curve… … and the risk that the Fed could fall behind the inflationary curve as a result of near record low unemployment (assuming the Phillips urve still works which it doesn’t)… … the risk is growing that the Fed could hike rates right int

How Can a Human Justify Asking to be Paid $15 to Work?
McDonald’s announced it will replace cashiers in 2,5000 stores with self-service kiosks. The story buzzed across the internet but Business Insider reported McDonald’s shoots down fears it is planning to replace cashiers with kiosks. Official Denial “McDonald’s has repeatedly said that adding kiosks won’t result in mass layoffs, but will instead move some cashiers to other parts of the restaurant where it’s adding new jobs, such as table service. The burger chain reiterated that position again

India’s gold fetish: $ 300 billion worth of gold consumed in last 10 years!
SifyFinance/06-22-17 India has ‘consumed’ around $ 00 billion worth of gold in the last ten years, a report by Kotak Institutional Equities has found. The report says gold prices have risen by 300% in this decade (FY 2008-FY2017). The best period for investing in gold was, however, the first five financial years (FY2008-12) covered by the report when ‘trade’ worked well as gold prices were rising rapidly. But the story has not been the same in the last five financial years (FY2013-17). This peri

The Gold Standard
According to Mises, money’s function as a medium of exchange is thus the central one, while its store of value and unit of account functions are merely subordinate functions. I would say store of value and unit of account is what makes the medium of exchange marketable. The medium of exchange has to be simple to understand, not only by educated people but also the most uneducated. It has to be easily accessed, not only in ideal circumstances but also in difficult ones. Many things have been trie

Canary In The Coal Mine: Unfunded Liabilities Have Turned Illinois Into A “Banana Republic” On The Brink Of Bankruptcy
Illinois is the perfect example of what happens when your state is run by fiscally irresponsible dunces for decades. The state is buried debt, and hasn’t passed a budget in over 700 days. 100% of their monthly revenue is being consumed by court ordered payments, and the Illinois Department of Transportation has revealed that they may not be able to pay contractors (who are working on over 700 infrastructure projects) after July 1st if the state doesn’t pass a budget. To top it all off, the state

An Empire Self-Destructs - Jeff Thomas
Empires are built through the creation or acquisition of wealth. The Roman Empire came about through the productivity of its people and its subsequent acquisition of wealth from those that it invaded. The Spanish Empire began with productivity and expanded through the use of its large armada of ships, looting the New World of its gold. The British Empire began through localized productivity and grew through its creation of colonies worldwide – colonies that it exploited, bringing the weal

Astrophysicist Warns Devastating Asteroid Impact Inevitable: “1,800 Potentially Hazardous Objects Have Been Discovered So Far”
There are a lot of different scenarios that ordinary people can prepare themselves for. Anyone can gear up for weather related events, war, pandemics, economic collapse, and earthquakes. Learning the right skills, stocking up on food, tools, weapons, and precious metals, are all attainable for most people, and can insulate them from just about any scenario. But there’s one disaster that’s significantly more difficult to prepare for, and that’s an asteroid strike. This type of disaster is so much

The Trend That Will Shake the Nation

Mary Midgley "Human rights are not only violated by terrorism, repression or assassination, but also by unfair economic structures that creates huge inequalities.

Nauseating Stupidity on Confiscating Homes for the Greater Good from The Intercept
When it comes to anti-war pieces and matters of the US government overstepping its bounds in matters of privacy and security, The Intercept is usually spot on. On matters of social justice, The Intercept puts out some nauseating trash. Intercept writer Zaid Jilani provides a perfect example with JEREMY CORBYN WANTS TO REQUISITION HOMES OF THE RICH FOR FIRE SURVIVORS — LIKE CHURCHILL DID IN WWII.

Trump’s Latest Tweet Hints That Nuclear War Is Getting Closer: “China’s Help with North Korea Has Not Worked Out”
There’s a reason we’ve suggested that concerned Americans stock up on anti-radiation pills and CBRN rated Gas Masks and if President Trump’s latest tweet is any guide then time is running short. While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried! — Donald J.

My Newest “Most Likely To Catalyze The Big One”
Today’s article is one of my scariest yet; as, after watching events unfold in the world’s most notorious geopolitical hotspot in recent weeks, it’s difficult to come up, using my best Spock-like logic, with an alternative conclusion to the potentially catastrophic one I’ll discuss today.  Which, if it occurs, may catalyze not only the financial “big one” we all know is coming, but an era of political, geopolitical, economic, and monetary destabilization unlike; and potentially, unparalleled in

“Major Deflationary Disruption” Says Cramer About Amazon Purchase of Whole Foods
Amazon bought Whole Foods today. Widespread carnage in the grocery stock prices followed. Jim Cramer called it a major deflationary disruption saying stores cannot compete. “If I was the Federal Reserve, I would have a meeting on this. Inflation is going to go down…. You have to rethink food … Costco knows how to compete.

Massive Government Preparations and Stockpiling Point To One Thing: “An Event Is Going To Happen”
The question is subtly Malthusian in nature: how to deal with the world’s teeming billions in one fell swoop while maintaining the existing social and political orders in all of the countries?  That order needs only to have one facade now: as Draconian an order that can be accomplished without throwing the world into a revolution against every government in existence.  The Draconian nature is as follows: CCTV cameras monitoring and cross-referencing every purchase, every bank withdrawal or depos

  Absent Without Leave 
It ain’t bragging if it’s true. I’ve said repeatedly on this blog for years that the federal government would only become more impotent, more incompetent, and more ineffectual as The Long Emergency rolled out. And here we are now, at just such pass in history. The process has been well underway since the beginning of the century. Even the attempts to expand its scope and reach — such as the post 9-11 addition of God-knows-how-many new intelligence services — has only produced an epic clusterfuck
