September 30, 2020 | Rock, Paper, Scissors

Way back in prehistoric times, before electronic gaming, children used to entertain themselves with certain hand games. I was always more of an “odds or even” gamer in which the choice was to display one or two fingers and outguess your opponent. The more sophisticated version was “rock, paper, scissors” which given the slightly greater […]

September 30, 2020 | Death of the Department Stores and the Alleged Retail Recovery

Department stores have been in a death spiral for years. Covid accelerated the trend. I went back over the advance retail sales starts for a closer look at what’s happening.Advance Retail Sales 1992-Present The above baseline chart shows sales have recovered above pre-Covid levels for the third month. For June, July, and August, sales topped […]

September 30, 2020 | Consumers Will Shoulder Cost of Deferring Workable Climate Policy

Slapping the word “clean” on a policy is meant to be an instant badge of its miraculous environmental effect. That sparkle is wearing off: more appropriate terms include costly, clunky and counterproductive. Stewart Muir looks at the situation. The federal Clean Fuel Standard (CFS) is the latest case in point, yet policymakers are so far […]

September 30, 2020 | Hard to Get Short, Impossible to Stay that Way

The most bearish thing you could say about the stock market these days is that it has been damn near impossible to short. Perhaps it’s for the better where bears are concerned. The chart above shows how the QQQs, an ETF proxy for the Nasdaq 100, have turned what could have become a bearish head-and-shoulders […]

September 30, 2020 | Implanting Chips into People as a Solution for COVID?

I really have a problem with them implanting a chip into me for this COVID-19 BS when it is nothing worse than the flu. It just seems that this is way over-the-top to scare everyone into some crazy new world where we are chipped, our DNA changed, and then what? The people behind this move, […]

September 30, 2020 | The Choice

“So,” she said, “what did your little rabble think of the debate?” Dorothy rarely cares what happens on this pathetic site, for which I am uncommonly thankful. But sometimes she asks. I cannot lie to the woman, since she (like most long-term partners), has brain-piercing powers. Deception is futile. “They hated it,” I said. And […]

September 29, 2020 | The Only Thing Systematic Is The Destruction of American – Part 2

In Part 1 of this article I detailed the purposeful systematic destruction of global economies, with a bad flu as the catalyst, as part of a plan by the Davos elite to reconstruct the world in a manner most beneficial to these evil men and detrimental to you and me. The fight remains to be […]

September 29, 2020 | The Protest

Note to readers: If you come here to leave a comment trying to influence the US election, ah, go away. I warned weeks ago that mindlessly partisan posts would be deleted. You know who you are. The social media world is polluted, corrupted, invaded, twisted and polarized enough without that swill slopping over our gunwales. […]

September 29, 2020 | Inflation … Deflation … Inflation

One of the results of the Fed’s monetary manipulations is an exacerbation of the cycle of inflation and deflation … or the “Boom-Bust” cycle. While the Fed has been trying to support inflation — supposedly to support economic growth … the COVID-19 crisis is keeping our economy under its thumb. On the other hand, human […]

September 29, 2020 | ‘Optimism’ Rises and Falls with Price. It Should Be The Other Way ’Round

The latest weekly survey by Nanos Research finds that 44% of Canadian respondents expect home prices to rise over the next six months, and just 27% said they could drop–this is reportedly one of the most optimistic readings on this question in the last 7 years.  At the same time, the share of Canadians who expect the […]

September 29, 2020 | Keep It Clean, Guys! Yeah, Sure….

Investors took no discernible position ahead of the debate, allowing stocks to slosh around the whole day and to close near the middle of their range. Even if you could be sure of the outcome, how would you have bet it?  The pundits seem to think Biden could benefit from low expectations if he gets […]

September 28, 2020 | The Only Thing Systematic Is The Destruction of America

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” – Upton Sinclair Upton Sinclair was describing willful ignorance based upon who butters your bread. The rampant corruption of our society, as power has been consolidated into fewer and fewer hands, has resulted in our political, […]

September 28, 2020 | Central Banks Become Guardians of the Galaxy

The central banks have been digging deeper and deeper into their monetary toolboxes in a vain hope of cushioning the COVID-19-induced shock, which has been orchestrated by this global effort to CRUSH the economy and redesign it in their image of a fossil-free world. The fake pandemic aside, the notion that the banks were already […]

September 28, 2020 | Feeling Ill

Wow, whadda week. The Confidence Man In Ottawa the big confidence vote may be called. It’s now a nothingburger, since the Dippers won everything they demanded of the Libs. The CERB is back and being extended for as far as the eye can see – although it’s called different names (enhanced EI and CRB). Does […]

September 27, 2020 | Great Reset Update: $50 Trillion Debt Coming

Amid all 2020’s new problems, it’s easy to overlook the old ones. Yet they are still there and, like a silently spreading virus, silently getting worse. One such problem is debt, and specifically government debt. All debt shares one common characteristic. A bill comes due at some point and, if the borrower doesn’t pay, the […]

September 27, 2020 | When False Flags Go Viral

If you’re reading this column, it’s highly likely you’re familiar with “false flag” terrorism. You’ve at least heard the term before, right? As I’ve had cause to note in my work in the past, the 2013 Atlantic Wire article, republished by Yahoo! News under the headline “What is a ‘False Flag’ Attack — and Was Boston One?” was, for […]

September 27, 2020 | Have You Heard About SPACs?

What came to be known as the South Sea Bubble was so pumped up before it popped in 1720 that investors apparently viewed nearly every opportunity as a sure thing. The York Building Company, for one.  After being purchased by the Hollow Sword Blade Company, it mutated into a provider of water to London, to […]
