 Thirteen Russians ands a Ham Sandwich  (6)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Mr Kunstler has hit the nail on the head, as he so often does. This Russian red herring serves nicely to distract people from the real issues - the perilous state of US finances and corruption involving the Deep State and what ought to be trustworthy forces of law and order. The American MSM have a lot to answer for.

 No Manipulation, After All
 - Theodore Butler - Butler Research
I am fairly sure that Monetary Metals has explained all this before. Either way it looks to me like silver has broken out of a long term downtrend. I was a seller at the peak, all of it gone, zip except for some numismatics. If you are playing in this market you cannot get wedded to a position. It seems to me that Mr B is in a losing position and is looking for excuses. Now is a good time to buy because it is at a relatively low price. TB should be a buyer here and now. Silver is bulky. I am not a big fan. People really need to examine their reasons for buying, in either the futures or physical market.

Anarchy is simply the absence of government and there have been examples of anarchy throughout history that lasted thousands of years. The resilience of anarchy is the lack of a centralized government whose fall would result in a sudden collapse and surrender of the entire nation.

Two examples albeit brief:

1)The Basque nation existed before the Roman Empire and survived long after it. They had no central government, no borders and thus needed no armies to defend non-existent borders. When adversaries marched through, they did business with them. Romans liked olive oil so the Basques grew olives. From the Vikings they learned to air-dry cod, build long-boats that sailed the Atlantic to the rich Grand Banks off Newfoundland and became premier suppliers of Cod to Europe.

2) An alliance of 5 (of about 50) anarchic Germanic tribes annihilated three Roman legions at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 CE thus halting the Roman expansion and conquest of northern Europe. It forced Rome to realize the conquest of so many individual tribes without a centralized government would have been prohibitively expensive.

 The New World Order  (6)
 - Nelson Hultberg - AFR.org
Stuck between a rock and a hard place.To stop their plan for humanity we have to be just as evil as them. In all of those quotes they see death and destruction to achieve what they want. In their arrogance they fail to see that they will only get what they seek if they win. Its many against the few. The battles between the rulers and the ruled have been fought before and they will be fought again and again. It is human nature.

People will only wake up to the new reality once they are trapped in a form of serfdom. A cashless society will pave the way to disempowerment of the populace.

 A Quandary  (7)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
DC stink has fogged the country's capitol for decades and decades, the latest crop of mushrooms growing on top of the pile is no different in ethical persuasions than those "leaders" of a hundred years ago. There are plots within plans, and conspiracies within strategies on all sides, which is something we need not be reminded of. The FBI, CIA, TSA, and even OSHA and USPD likely have secrets begging to make the next headline on the WP or Fox News. The negativity of it all is crippling to the nation, yet, regardless of the origins of allegations, it is the duty to follow up on each. If something rotten is to be found, let those who are charged with investigative duties track it to its core for verification. The concern should not be who, what, or why the charges are made, but do we have enough resources to probe and verify them all to clean up the government.

 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Well, Trump has made a fine start at leading the country to the right. His support of big banks, big corporations, and Wall Street is undoing decades of that darn governmental oversight. Of course, his tax refinements are going to increase the gigantic debt into a gargantuan one. But that trickle down might appease the common folk enough to let the CEOs claim their billions without incident. As you say, it IS a tall order to change the moral corruption pervading our society, I hope our great leader doesn't get so bogged down in assault cases, porn queen payoffs, and golf that he can't fix up our ethics. Yessireebob, our Constitution needs protectin', 'specially that part about guns, the Bible needs readin' by everyone (don't need no other religions here), and every man needs a job (women should be back in the kitchen where they belong). And dadgummit, who cares about refugees and those starving here and in other countries...they ain't patriotic 'Mericans!

Great analysis of the current situation ( 5 stars).
Mr. Trump has to correct most of the socialist - communist direction set by the Obama years.
Ms. Clinton and company have to be uncovered and prosecuted.
The country has to start producing and paying the gigantic debt created in the past 50 years.
It is a tall order composed by the moral corruption pervading our society.
It is time to go back to our basic principles. The Constitution, the Christian Religion, the Traditional Family, Meaningful and Productive Work for everyone, Allow only productive Immigration and people who come prepared to do something instead of living out of welfare.
God Bless America!

Hillary was a poor choice of candidate for the Dems. Although she won the popular vote, barely, the DNC would have done better running another. Socialism vs. whatever? No, it was not a contest between socialism and whatever Trump is attempting to sell the public. It was a frustrated middle and lower class throwing up over the choices available and choosing the one who might change the DC mindset that ignores the plight of the middle class. Hillary was entrenched as part of that landscape and the Dems paid dearly for that association. Now come the days to dissect Trump's contribution to the body politic. Collusion maybe hinted, but a bigger chance of "gotcha" is money laundering in NY's golden Trump throne. Time will tell.

She, Hillary clearly won the debates and yet he still won the election.
Çlearly, the electorate chose not to go down the socialist route that has been an absolute disaster everywhere it has been tried.
Unfortunately Trump has inherited a country heading rapidly into the 3rd world.
Can he turn that around? Very Doubtful IMO

 An Inquiry Into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of States (2014), by Arthur Laffer, Stephen Moore, Rex Sinquefield, and Travis Brown
 - Nathan Lewis - New World Economics
Nice article. As you stated early on, "There are simply too many other factors involved..." But what great fun it is to read between the numbers and come out with a plausible theory. One thing I see missing in the data is age considerations. How much of the state-by-state fluctuations is created by elders retiring and leaving the job market, moving away to warmer climes, or dying. Since age concentrations differ from state to state one might expect that the huge Baby-Boomer generation will have a dramatic effect in the future on such data. The data shown, however, shows mostly pre-retirement years of the over 60-years-of-age and may not have been effected yet by the Boomers.

I'm not a Trump fan either, but he got one thing right, he picked the perfect candidate to run against. HRC is perhaps the largest crocodile in the swamp.

I heard a great quote this morning on NPR. The Angolan President was vowing to fight corruption. "The problem with fighting corruption, is that corruption fights back."
