 The New Totalitarianism  (6)
 - Nelson Hultberg - AFR.org
Excellent essay, sir! I wholeheartedly agree with your assessment, essentially repealing the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment. I would only add the 17th Amendment as well, the direct election of Senators. Senators were intended to be elected by the respective state legislatures, so as to represent the interests of the State; while the Representatives in Congress were to represent the interests of the People. The fact is, direct election of Senators has only further diminished the interests of, and the rights of the states.

 Negative Interest Rates Are ILLEGAL - Jeff Nielson  (3)
 - Sprott Money - 
thats not what im talking about. im describing basic economics of money. if i have some gold at my house and you want to borrow some of it to use as a down-payment on a car i might lend you some amount to do that, at interest. i am betting that you will repay me. if you dont,i lose. so the gold i lend to you has the inherent value of my labor and or possibly the risk i took to acquire it. ps. money to be Money is all, as you state "commodity money". fiat money like a menance slimes upon the rememberd commodity moneys value until it is revealed that all one has is paper and zink. delusion over.

That type of 'capital investment' to realise money is generally known as 'dividend' raised through the purchase of shares - as you rightly state, this is known as profit - and is earnt. It is incorrect to call it interest, which is un-earned income, as I showed above.
During the 19th and early 20th centuries share issues were made to facilitate new ventures - not bank loans.
The other phenomenon you speak of is one known as managed money, and to be called this it is necessary for it to be derived from commodity money: in the 30's in GB the commodity was Gold.

 The Libertarian Paradox  (19)
 - Lew Rockwell - 
As your article suggests, the state claims to insure an orderly environment so liberty can flourish. The reality is that the state promotes false enemies to justify their domination over us. A key false enemy is the supposed primitive, violent and aggressive instincts of man. This depiction of man as a violent war-like beast that needs society to tame was promoted by Globalist agent Sigmund Freud. Of course how convenient of our hidden Globalist Masters to convince us that we started all these wars. They are famous for promoting false enemies. Speaking of false enemies, they also have everyone believing germs cause disease. Pasteur admitted on his death bed that it was a contaminated internal environment known as the Terrain that caused disease and not germs. Germs were merely nature’s clean up crew when encountering dead tissue degraded by toxic injury. A good example is the Zika Virus hoax. What the Globalist-controlled media isn’t telling anyone is that Brazil is heavily sprayed with the dangerous GMO weed killer Roundup that produces small-headed infants. Now the Globalists have an excuse to spray our urban areas like Miami and kill off our bees that support our crops. The public believes the government is protecting them from some innocent virus called Zika conjured up as a false enemy. Just like that other false enemy - man's supposed aggressive nature that randomly starts wars.

 The Truth About War and the State  (5)
 - Lew Rockwell - 
Waugh Despite rigging as you say, Ron Paul couldn't even get eight states in 2012. He was too honest - with his "we can't afford the welfare and the warfare" talk that's making us uncompetitive and that's why Ron Paul wanted to massively cut Big Government that everyone was too afraid to support. Trump has to promote the myth that we just have incompetent trade negotiators. Another myth: Trump can't tell the public that Israeli's "danced on 9-11". Instead he floated the myth that muslims "danced on 9-11". 9-11 Cop Who Arrested Dancing Israelis Speaks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-B2J7tp8eg In other words the public can't take the truth and they have to be lied to as Trump understands. That's why he so successful and Ron Paul didn't get off the ground.

 Signs of Desperation  (8)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Our CIA overthrow of Ukraine is an attempt to disrupt the Russian pipeline delivering non-petrodollar gas to Europe. Our attempt to overthrow Syria's Assad is to foil the scheduled construction of a non-petrodollar Iran pipeline to be built through Syria. Our globalist masters depend on parasitic rackets like the petrodollar for income that is being squeezed by rebellious non-western powers like Russia and Iran. No wonder our globalist rulers are rattling sabres to invade Russia, replace Putin with a compliant stooge like in Ukraine and restore the petrodollar racket. Criminal skimming and protection rackets are critical to the survival of the parasites controlling America. Besides the petrodollar, the CIA's heroin and cocaine operations are being squeezed also and our globalists rulers are getting desperate as their illicit revenue streams are drying up as Putin is now getting scapegoated even more than Trump.

 IMF Gold Sales – Where ‘Transparency’ means ‘Secrecy’
 - Ronan Manly - Bullion Star
Are you sure about the 1.7 million metric tonnes of Gold you mention ? That's like 10 times more gold than was ever produced 
Read commentsRead this articleReply
Answer To :KarenHudes - 9/5/2016 at 12:56 PM GMT
The article starts out by confusing everybody referring by to IMF Gold. The Global Debt Facility containing over 1.7 million metric tonnes of gold is administered by the Board of Governors of the World Bank and IMF. Why aren't you mentioning anything about that? I think you whole purpose is to confound, not to enlighten.

Answer To :dboy1231 - 8/8/2016 at 3:05 PM GMT
To lump Soviet, Venezuelan, Brazilian and American "socialism" into a single group is perhaps a little to broad. They are quite different in their origins and in their practices. Socialism was a social movement in response to feudalism, monarchy, theocracy and a number of other very complex and different social structures. Capitalism is an economic system. Socialism is not. We know this because capitalism can operate in most social structures, whereas socialism IS the social structure.

Your comparison is misplaced. A more meaningful comparison would be between American capitalism and Soviet communism and their respective effects on the environment. However, your example of BP (whose actions you seem to approve of) is quite anti-capitalist in most respects and is more likely the result of socialism (social pressure) - BP was concerned primarily with their image rather than their stock price. Conversely, Mexican immunity is the result of capitalism without socialism.

Democratic socialism is thus one means of using social pressure to restrain naturally occurring excesses in the economic system.

 Apple Tax Grab by EU Invades IRS Airspace
 - John Browne - Euro Pacific Capital
This article defies belief. 1. "The aggressive stance of the Commission set off a furor of high level political argument" - politicians the world over are owned and controlled by the big end of town so why would they not be unhappy when multinationals are asked to pay tax. 2. "tax grab" - really??? Citizens are forced to pay tax so what is different for multinationals. I am waiting to hear the old chestnut about big business 'providing jobs'. This is routinely rolled out to justify why wealthy individuals and corporation should not have to pay taxes. What is never disclosed is that these entities do not run their businesses as a charity and they are in it for the profit. If they could run their enterprises with robots and not employ a single human being then THEY WOULD. Create jobs? Yeah right. More like 'need slaves'. I find this article outright offensive and the author must almost certainly be the next paid stooge from the big end of town. I suggest he get a job in politics where he may be more suited to wearing the King's New Clothes.

 Allegations of Fraud Surface Over “One Time” Donations to Hillary that Occur Repeatedly
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Excellent article, Mish - it's about time this was highlighted - it is happening all the time here in the UK, with insurance companies, 'phone companies, etc. I found that I had entered into a 'continuous payment authority' or CPA, when I believed it was a one-off payment (for insurance). But further amounts of money were removed from my account. The only way I could stop it was to contact the bank, who cancelled the card and issued a new one. Moral: read all the t's and c's first, before paying any entity using a card.

 Ken Rogoff’s Government Debt Default Plan - Peter Diekmeyer

I thought James Grant's dismissal of this dangerous piece of propaganda was good but yours, Peter, was even better. Please, everyone, who reads and understands what is really happening here, try to make everyone you know aware just how insidious ideas like 'cashless society' really are. Rogoff is too intelligent believe the rubbish he writes. You can be absolutely certain another agenda lies behind it.

 Slowly, Then All at Once  (4)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
You say Trump knows nothing. He knows the public can't handle the truth and even you refer to the "shocking incapacity of the American public". They have been chemically dumbed down with vaccines, fluoride, GMOs and chemtrails. What do you expect? Trump couldn't even tell the public there were "dancing Israelis" on 9-11 and not "dancing muslims" as he proclaimed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8FlSWitOpg Trump couldn't tell the public the globalist skimming and protection racket called the Petrodollar is behind all the wars in Iraq, Libya, Ukraine and Syria. Trump (unlike Ron Paul) couldn't tell the public that we can't afford the warfarism and the welfarism that is making us uncompetitive. Instead he says we have incompetent deal makers. Don't expect Trump or anyone else running successful campaigns to level with the sick and poisoned masses. Our globalist masters made sure the public can't handle the truth.

 Why Fiat Money Manipulation Can Never Produce Prosperity
 - Nathan Lewis - New World Economics
While I don't disagree with your premise on a Macro level, on a micro level it is errant. Banksters have been proving for well over 100 years that fiat currency can enrich those that control it, which was exactly the point for its creation to begin with. The enrichment is not immediate, but steady and precise, to the point that what is left are the masses who have been steadily robbed without most of them understanding how it has happened. Now, in fact when the banksters are near the end of their Keynsian ropes, they will demand that they be rescued by the various governments that have supported them, again at the cost of the masses. This is the epitome of "the rich get richer" and history has shown it almost always ends violently.

You'll probably catch a lot of hell on this one James. This thing about the superfluous ( nonessential, redundant, unneeded, excess, extra, (to) spare, remaining, unused, left over, in excess, waste ) caught fire once ALREADY among us "Deplorables." We have but to look at The Case of Julian Assange to see that one side considers him "superfluous" while the other side certainly knows he has always been needed and remains absolutely essential. We're talking about the SAME guy here. It's OUR Society. Let's make everyone an essential part of it.

 Hyperinflation Versus Deflationary Collapse  (4)
 - Darryl Robert Schoon - Survive the Crisis
"Germany intentionally hyperinflated its currency to pay its onerous war debts". The US 'owns' significant amounts assets all around the world: land, equities, mines, etc. Let me get this straight....the US debt is so large that it will inflate its currency and then repay it's debt in monopoly money? ie funny money. And if we get deflation it will just default and claim insolvency? Is this the conduct of a reputable country or is it fraud on the largest scale on the planet. What sort of people, other than Donald Trump, act this way???? If this happens the rest of the world will not do business with the US again. Ever.

Don't forget the extra hit now that overseas countries are having the audacity to require multinationals, mostly American companies, to pay the going rate of tax in their countries. Imagine, paying tax? Don't these countries know that multinationals create jobs???? And then you get the predicted response with a Whitehouse spokesperson getting in front of the cameras threatening retribution. Really?

 Do You Believe There is Food Price Deflation? Mish vs. Consensus
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
You covered the burrito index, which I think is a more fair representation of actual prices that most people pay. I use the taco index, myself. When I was a kid, tacos were a quarter, or 4 for a dollar. When I was at university, it was 3 tacos for a dollar at Taco Bell. Now they're 1 for $1.20. So, either I'm around 400 years old (to be consistent with government's claims of low inflation), OR prices are heading up. My driver's license says it'll be quite a few years before I apply for SS, and I believe that.

 We Need Secession and Nullification  (5)
 - Tom DiLorenzo - lewRockwell
Article shows how the federal government should not have been given any role in the founding of America. Observe how the commerce clause was used to justify Obamacare. The federalists should never have been allowed to get their foot in the door dominating the states. Each state is an individual nation. In fact a true libertarian believes there is no role for any government. Private contracts among paying individual parties, guns, shame and the internet are all that's needed to manage the affairs of men. No government is required and absolutely no government coercion should be allowed under any circumstances.

 An Open Letter to Jesse Jackson
 - Nelson Hultberg - AFR.org
Why is it that when a conservative writer wants to castigate a liberal policy, the first thing out of their mouths, or pens, or computers, is to call the policy Marxist? Even if the definition of Marxism actually DID apply to the policy, so what? Should a reader believe that unions, public streets, and fire departments, and laws passed to create a fair playing field are all but a boot click away from becoming a communist state? Every government around the globe contains elements of various political viewpoints that help the government work better for their people. From social services in the US to capitalism in "Communist Red" China, the efficiency of a government is determined by its ability to use whatever strategies from whatever political "ism" it must. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was an attempt by the government to end a hundred years of concerted efforts by parts of our society to subjugate an entire racie and large portion of our population. It may not be a perfect or "fair" law in every application, just as most laws are not, but it works in the majority of cases to benefit our society in the whole. Only a myopic, horribly biased, and short-sighted view would deem it otherwise.

You say Trump or Hillary can induce disorder. What about the disorder we are all about to face by the manipulations of Wall St and their minions in Washington. We are about to find out what disorder and in fact chaos is all about soon - compliments of our hidden globalist masters. BTW, you're right about all these insecure pledges and lapel pins. Secure people should not need this constant re-affirmation of patriotism. Who was it Andrew Johnson who said, "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel". Interesting that immediately after 9-11, out came the flags and the sheeple circled the wagons. Conspicuously missing was any curiosity as to why we were attacked. It took Ron Paul years later to explain resentful "blowback" by foreigners angry at CIA coups. Even more important was the missing critical thinking questioning who attacked attacked us and challenging the illogical government story that was immediately presented as gospel as if all the investigation was done the first day and obvious to everyone.
