The International Forecaster - So surely you’ve heard that 2001: A Space Odyssey‘s evil A.I. super-computer HAL is a thinly veiled reference to IBM, right? You know, change each letter in “HAL” to the next one in the alphabet? Well, what do you get when you change each letter in the word “mob” to the next one in the alphabet. […]

HoweStreet.com Radio - China claims to have the tools to survive trade war with US

The International Forecaster - “The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay. The Shadow knows!” Perhaps you’re old enough to remember this tag line from the 1930s radio dramatization of The Shadow. Or perhaps, like me, you spent your childhood listening to “Those Old Radio Shows” on your local radio station before going to bed every night. Or perhaps […]

HoweStreet.com Radio - India now seeing a currency meltdown

The International Forecaster - OK, I’ve got some good news and some bad news. Which do you want first? The good news? OK, no problem. You know that old anti-war cliché about “Suppose They Gave A War And No One Came“? Well that slogan might be closer to becoming reality than you think.  Exhibit A: This story from Japan Today. “SDF recruiters […]

The International Forecaster - So the Korean war ended this week. Or so you would believe if you scanned the headlines of the British tabloids. “North and South Korea have finally ended the Korean War after 65 years!” blares The Mirror. And reading from the article: North Korea’s willingness to abolish its missile facilities and close its main nuclear […]

HoweStreet.com Radio - Tariffs Now Hurting US Companies in China

The International Forecaster - Speaking of 9/11 War Games, Russia just held some war games on 9/11. And not just any war games, but the biggest war games they’ve held since the Cold War. The drills, scheduled to wrap up on the 17th, involve the deployment of 300,000 troops and include maneuvers in Russia’s Far East region, as well as a naval […]

The International Forecaster - Remember when I told you about “China’s SWIFT Alternative and the (Engineered) Death of the Dollar“? Well, now it’s Germany’s turn to get in on the act. As the Financial Times reports: Germany’s foreign minister has called for the creation of a new payments system independent of the US as a means of rescuing the nuclear deal […]

The International Forecaster - Let’s party like it’s 1999! No, better yet, let’s party like it’s 2018! What? Haven’t you heard the news? The US stock market bull run of 2009-2018 has just surpassed the 1990-2000 bull run to become the longest period of continually-rising stocks in US history. It was March 9, 2009 when the market finally bottomed […]

August 12th, 2018 | The Secret Battle for Africa

The International Forecaster - In October 2017 United States African Command confirmed that three Green Berets had been killed and two more had been wounded when their patrol was ambushed in Niger. Reaction to this news from the non-Forecaster audience was: “What? There’s a United States African Command?” followed swiftly by “What are Green Berets doing conducting patrols in Niger, anyway?” […]

The International Forecaster - It’s not often that you see an MSM headline that tells an entire story, complete with a plot and sub-plot, but when you do it’s usually in a tabloid. Such is the case with this recent doozy from The Daily Fail: “America is talking to the Taliban in a bid to end 17 years of Afghanistan war […]

The International Forecaster - So, you know how decentralized technologies are making it possible to do things that were completely impossible before? Like creating uncensorable information storage and retrieval networks or circumventing the gun laws of the would-be tyrants? Well, how about if it could also allow you to bet on anything? And I mean anything. Doesn’t sound so amazing? Well, what if we’re […]

July 25th, 2018 | China, Japan, and Vietnam

HoweStreet.com Radio - Asian reaction to US/EU trade talks

The International Forecaster - Well, it’s official: “Japan Inc.” is now “Bank of Japan Inc.” Oh, OK, not officially official, but just about. As the Nikkei Asian Review reports, the Bank of Japan (BOJ) is now a top-10 shareholder in a whopping 40% of the listed companies in the country. That’s right, having purchased 25 trillion yen ($227 billion) worth of exchange-traded […]

The International Forecaster - America is in a funk. Slipping into an economic and cultural morass and at risk of losing its footing on the global chessboard, American workers find themselves working more and making less money. How can this be? Flailing for an answer, they find it in the mouth of a politician who tells them he can […]

The International Forecaster - I’ve been looking at some of the globalist summits around the world lately but here’s one that slipped under the radar: the International Energy Forum. The IEF’s 16th bienniel energy ministers meeting took place in New Delhi this past April and brought together 5o of the world’s energy ministers, 30 energy company CEOs and 12 heads of international organizations. […]

The International Forecaster - Oh, pity the poor globalists. They’re going to be running around like chickens with their heads cut off in the next few days. …Well, OK, more like flying around in their private jets like well-pampered chickens with their heads cut off, but you get the idea. Why? Well, because globalist conference season is in full […]

June 2nd, 2018 | How to Skirt Sanctions

The International Forecaster - “Abandon all hope ye who enter here.” That, famously, is the inscription above the gates of hell in Dante’s Inferno, and, if Uncle Sam gets his way, it will be the first thing that comes to mind for any company seeking to skirt the Iranian sanctions that are snapping back into place in the coming months. […]

HoweStreet.com Radio - Faulty Kobe Steel scandal now a criminal investigation

The International Forecaster - So it’s come to this. The fate of the world hangs in the balance…and it’s the EU that’s going to be the deciding factor. The EU? Really? Sigh.  You may have heard that the US scrapped the Iranian nuclear deal this week, setting off a series of events that could very likely end up […]

HoweStreet.com Radio - Has China been successful slowing the flow of money out of the country?

May 5th, 2018 | Japan’s Stealth Army

The International Forecaster - Last month, while everyone was distracted by other events, the Japanese government did something rather remarkable: They activated a marine unit. Specifically, the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force activated a 1,500 man unit known as the Amphibious Rapid Deployment Brigade. The occasion was marked by a ceremony at Sasebo military base on the island of Kyushu. This […]

The International Forecaster - It’s shocking, shocking, I tell you! Apparently, and I’m just learning this from some breaking news headlines so bear with me, but apparently Facebook has not been on the up and up when it comes to protecting their users’ privacy. Incredible, I know. I mean, these are still early reports so we’ll have to wait […]
