June 30, 2021 | Election Fraud

COMMENT: Martin, I am an election manager (coordinator) in —- and I have been observing the election fraud situation. In the states that are at issue, there were stark similarities.  To even think that one day, lots of people woke up and used the same techniques is stupidly naive.  In my estimation as a Washingtonian, […]

June 30, 2021 | The Bubble Epoch Gets Worse

YOUGHAL IRELAND – Yes, it’s the age of miracles. The Bubble Epoch. The silly season. And it just gets sillier and sillier. Christine Lagarde, who holds the top spot at the European Central Bank (ECB), announced that she’s going to continue pumping up the money supply by 17 billion euros per week. She says it is […]

June 30, 2021 | The Fail Test

Well, the pandemic ends tomorrow. Canada Day marks not only a time for haters to harass me about my flag (an update below), but also the time when provinces like BC, Alberta, Ontario and NS dump most Covid protocols and let you live a kinda-normal life again. No masks in British Columbia, where they need […]

June 30, 2021 | Transitory Inflation

There’s a lot of bets these days on higher inflation and higher interest rates. After being plagued for over a decade with a zero interest rate policy, a new combination of government spending and central bank QE purchases are poised to send inflation higher. So far that’s been the winning trade, with CPI inflation printing […]

June 29, 2021 | The Showdown

The exit of Lib cabinet star Catherine McKenna this week birthed immediate speculation legendary Mark Carney will be running this autumn in the 100%-guaranteed-election that’s yet to be announced. Carney was head snort at the Bank of Canada. Then he ran the Bank of England (during the Brexit mess). Then US special envoy for climate […]

June 29, 2021 | The Plot Thickens

COMMENT: Dear Sir, thanks for the messages at your blog. Today I heard from my daughter that during the European soccer championship a Danish player got a heart attack. That was broadcasted but not that two days before he got a corona vaccin. My grandson of 9 yrs wants to have a vaccination. Why? He […]

June 29, 2021 | The Most Splendid Housing Bubbles in America: Holy Moly. June Update

House prices soared by 14.6% from a year ago, according to the National Case-Shiller Home Price Index, the biggest increase in the data going back to 1987. But it pales compared to the raging mania that has taken hold of individual metros. Today’s release, called “April,” is based on a three-month average of sales recorded […]

June 29, 2021 | These Big Inflation Numbers Are Interesting But Ultimately Unimportant

It’s been hard, lately, to untangle the many causes of inflation’s sudden surge. How much is due to the pandemic lockdown distorting year-over-year comparisons? How much to crippled supply chains forcing manufacturers to pay up for needed components? And how much to good old-fashioned excessive money printing? Whatever the cause, headline inflation numbers have been […]

June 28, 2021 | Warning – Pandemics Are Never What They Seem

Fauci, I believe, has been a callous murderer. Perhaps, like Albert Einstein, we should dissect his brain when he is dead to understand how someone can be so evil. There has long been a long-standing view that Fauci did the same thing with AIDS, and the drugs he rushed through killed people and cured nobody. […]

June 28, 2021 | Peter L. Bernstein on Risk

Peter L. Bernstein’s experience and emotional intelligence (EQ) helped him become a rare wise leader in finance.  After serving in WW2, he took over the management of his father’s investment counsel firm in 1951, where he worked as a portfolio manager until 1973. The first 15 years of his tenure coincided with one of the […]

June 28, 2021 | Noob Talk

“Apart from reading your blog,” writes Kiren, “I’m a complete noob.” So how did an 18-year-old from Winnipeg start visiting this pathetic, canine-addicted, heretical financial blog attached to a steerage section teeming with weirdos? “I grew up watching my dad read your blog and became quite familiar with that blog photo of yours long before I myself […]

June 27, 2021 | Protestors Block the Nova Scotia-New Brunswick Border

  Civil unrest is rising in Canada due to Trudeau’s tyranny. Transit between the border of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick was closed for nearly a day after the Nova Scotia government announced that those traveling from New Brunswick would be forced to self-quarantine upon arrival. The decision was announced only a day after Novia […]

June 27, 2021 | Baseball Is Cure for Covid Fear-Mongering

Fear of the much-ballyhooed Delta variant was nowhere in evidence recently at North Carolina’s McCormick Field, home of a minor-league baseball team called the Asheville Tourists. The team, a high Single-A farm club operated by the Houston Astros, filled McCormick’s 4000 seats to near-capacity, and there was nary a mask in sight. It was great […]

June 27, 2021 | In the Bag

Five months before Covid crashed into us, the nation had an election. Remember that? It was Trudeau vs Scheer, with the Bloc and Dippers as sideshows and Mad Max uselessly sucking off about 300,000 votes from the Tories. The results (in order of popular vote): Cons 34.3% Libs 33.1% NDP 16% BQ 7.6% Greens 6.5% […]

June 27, 2021 | Long Humanity

“At the end of the day” is a trite figure of speech, but it sometimes fits. It signals you’ve used all your time, and now you’ll wrap up and begin thinking about tomorrow. I like to say designing the Strategic Investment Conference agenda is my personal art form. There’s more to it than just picking […]

June 26, 2021 | The Fascism of the Left Has Infiltrated All levels of Government

@johannesvick♬ original sound – johannesvick This becomes a fight for the very principles on which the United States was founded. People have infiltrated government at every level and believe they have a right to censor and moot all dissent. This is not what America stood for, and this is clearly why the computer will be […]

June 26, 2021 | Activists Seeking to Protect Canada’s Old-Growth Forest Say They are Aligned with First Nations. Is That Really True?

By protesting in places they’re not wanted, conservationists are being called out by Indigenous leaders like Huu-ay-aht Chief Dennis for exemplifying the colonial approach taken by their forebears, writes Rochelle Baker. Huu-ay-aht Chief Councillor Robert J. Dennis Sr. is blunt in his assessment of old-growth activists in southwestern Vancouver Island who remain in First Nations’ territories […]

June 26, 2021 | Trading Desk Notes For June 26, 2021

You can’t go home again Thomas Wolfe told us that, “We can’t go back home again – to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time.”   Keep that in mind when you think about the possibility of the Fed ever truly “normalizing” their policies.
