September 17, 2021 | The Biggest Manipulators in the Nation

YOUGHAL, IRELAND – This week, we’re exploring the idea of “truth.” What about crypto? What is true about it? What is false? At first, cryptos were thought to be new forms of money.

September 16, 2021 | Crypto Conundrum

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – New ideas come at you, whether you want them or not. Sometimes, they are as easy to understand as a Post-It Note. But sometimes, you don’t know what to make of them. Useful? Silly? Valuable? Time waster? The powers-that-be generally resist them. They fear the powers-that-will-be if they let things evolve freely. […]

September 16, 2021 | Decelerating Global Economy Strained by Rising Greenback

As the global economy continues to decelerate, the US dollar is rising and key commodities (priced in dollars) are tumbling.  Iron ore, silver and lumber are all back to where they were before COVID-19 vaccines spurred reopening euphoria in November 2020.

September 15, 2021 | Boris Johnson Poster Child for Morally Corrupt Politicians?

QUESTION: You refused to advise Boris Johnson. Do you think that was a mistake?

September 15, 2021 | Former SEC Prosecutor on Why Law Enforcement has Failed in Finance

This 2019 speech should help to provoke a new regulatory enforcement regime, not just in America.  Until we, the people, insist, nothing is going to change.

September 14, 2021 | After Moderate Selling US Stock Markets Rebound Higher – How Long Will This Trend Continue?

The recent bout of selling in the US markets prompted traders/investors to rethink their longer-term strategies.  But our interpretation of this rotation was consistent with moderate price rotation that we’ve seen nearly every 20 to 30 days, on average, for almost the past year or longer.  The markets need to really break away from this […]

September 13, 2021 | Truth: A Total Fantasy

YOUGHAL, IRELAND – Last week was a delight… at least from a cynical perspective.

CNN was on the story: “We’ve been patient, but our patience […]

September 10, 2021 | Australia Bans Doctors from Prescribing Ivermectin

Australian General Practitioners have also been banned from prescribing Ivermectin to Covid-19 patients. Let us make something very clear. They have NOTHING to treat symptoms. They are effectively banning doctors from treating people with COVID-19. Politicians, I believe, have been bribed by these people to restrict treatment to only the vaccines. They are now deliberately killing people. […]
