July 31, 2021 | Who is the Real Culprit?

There is a serious question arising and that is if Klaus Schwab has been manipulated by Bill Gates? I know for an ABSOLUTE FACT that Schwab was vaccinated in February 2021.

Stock markets in China are getting even cheaper. The Hong Kong-based Hang Seng Index is down more than 20 percent from its January 2018 high.

July 30, 2021 | Bubble, Meet Prick

The sleepy little university city is a hundred clicks from the Big Smoke. Not exactly an easy commute. But WFH and Covid changed all that. So far in 2021 home sales in Guelph jumped 62% above 2020 levels. Prices increased 32% in a year. Nobody – not a single agent or broker – had ever […]

July 29, 2021 | Michael Pento: The Fed Is Murdering The Markets And The Middle Class

From Michael Pento’s Pentonomics:  The Fed’s manipulation of the money supply and its cost has served to obliterate the function of asset price discovery, just as it has also caused the middle and lower classes to reduce their standard of living. Since a greater percentage of their falling real incomes goes to the purchase of […]

July 29, 2021 | Nature’s Own Fuel Could Save Us From the Greenhouse Effect and Electric Grid Failure

On July 14, the European Union unveiled sweeping climate change and emissions targets that would, according to Gulf News, mean “the end of the internal combustion engine”: The commission’s draft would reduce permitted emissions from new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles to zero from 2035 – effectively obliging the industry to move on to battery-electric […]

What happens to a global economy after 10+ years of global central bank efforts to support a recovery attempt after a massive credit/debt collapse originates from a prior credit/debt housing bubble?  What happens to global economies when they become addicted to easy money policies and central bank activities that support greater and greater risk-taking? What is […]

July 29, 2021 | The Bottom

At 11:37 am Eastern on July 29th, this blog might have hit bottom. At that time K.

July 28, 2021 | Canada is 100% on Board with Schwab’s Biodigital Program

All the pretend fact-checkers call it a conspiracy theory that Schwab wants to alter humanity and create trans-human species. Yet, here we have the government of Canada openly admitting that they are moving toward a biodigital world where they boldly state that this will progress to influence us to “even evolve as a species.”   […]

July 28, 2021 | On Cowardice

If there’s one thing Mr. Market does not want, it’s another lockdown. That could whack the recovery, halt consumer spending, crash the airlines, crush tourism and further tilt society towards the debt abyss. Ditto for commercial real estate, employers and the housing market. A sudden spike in unemployment at this stage would be tough to […]

July 27, 2021 | Get over it

Recently I collided with a woman who wanted me to build her a high-octane, growth-oriented, all-equity, no-safety-net portfolio. How come, I asked. “Because I’m young,” she said. “It’s what you’re supposed to do.” Well, she didn’t make the cut as a client. And while the common wisdom in the money business is that investors with […]
