May 11, 2022 | Chris Martenson: The Pfizer Documents

The FDA and Pfizer wanted to keep the vaccine trial results hidden for up to 75 years. Now we know why. Here are some quite serious anomalies that are begging for answers…. by Dr. Chris Martenson on Peak Prosperity: One such example is the fact that the lead author on the seminal vaccine paper in […]

May 8, 2022 | Small Business Owner: How Covid Crippled Us but Made Bank for Blackstone

  by Patrick Nelson on Publius: The government response to the Covid-19 pandemic was rough on most of the nation’s seven million businesses. Each year 600,000 businesses close their doors, and in the first year of the lockdown this increased by an extra 200,000 casualties. Some of us struggled more than others to survive. My business, […]

May 7, 2022 | Schiff Gold: Buckle Up for a Crashing Economy and More Inflation

by Michael Maharrey on Schiff Gold: Jerome Powell began hinting that inflation might be a problem last August. In November, Powell retired the word “transitory.” But here we are in May and the Federal Reserve still hasn’t done anything substantive to address the inflation problem. And now it may be too late. It’s probably time […]

May 5, 2022 | Jim Rickards: The Dollar’s Collapse is Happening Before Our Eyes

by Jim Rickards on The Daily Reckoning: Analysts and authors, myself included, have been warning about the collapse of the dollar as the global reserve currency for years.

by Chris Martenson on Peak Prosperity: Currently, diesel prices in the U.S. and Europe are signaling that serious shortages are now upon the western world. What does this mean?

May 3, 2022 | Charles Hugh Smith: Is Housing a Bubble That’s About To Crash?

by Charles Hugh Smith: Are we heading into another real estate bubble / crash? Those who say “no” see the housing shortage as real, while those who say “yes” see the demand as a reflection of the Federal Reserve’s artificial goosing of the housing market via its unprecedented purchases of mortgage-backed securities and “easy money” […]

May 2, 2022 | Jeffrey Tucker: Two Weeks to Flatten the GDP

by Jeffrey Tucker on The Brownstone Institute: What is it with these pundits and government spokespeople? Two years ago, they were wildly exaggerating virus threats, canceling and censoring people who pointed out contrary evidence. It was all about scaring people into compliance with a far-flung epidemiological experiment. Now the tendency has swung the other way. […]

May 1, 2022 | Charles Hugh Smith: Not the 70s or the 20s: We’re in uncharted territory

The awakening of inflation after decades of slumber has triggered a flurry of comparisons to the 1970s accompanied by a chorus of projections for 1970s-type stagflation, defined as inflation plus economic stagnation– limited or negative growth and high unemployment. A less popular comparison is with the 1920s: a massive expansion of debt, an equally massive […]

April 29, 2022 | Bill Blaine: April Exposes Markets to Some Brutal Truths

by Bill Blain on Blain’s Morning Porridge: Sometimes the penny takes an awful long time to drop.

Take a look at the […]

April 28, 2022 | David Haggith: US Economy Crashes Headlong into Recession!

s it too extreme to say an annualized GDP growth number of minus 1.4% this quarter puts us in recession in THIS quarter, and is it too extreme to call that a “crash?” It is not in the least extreme, and I’ll tell you why, even though the standard definition of a recession is two […]

by Anna Golubova on Kitco News: Are we witnessing a reversal in globalization?

April 26, 2022 | Lew Rockwell: Using War to Assault Freedom

by Andrew P. Napolitano at Lew Rockwell: Most judges and lawyers agree that the war on drugs in the past 50 years has seriously diminished the right to privacy guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. Now a small group of legal academics is arguing that the war in Ukraine should be used to diminish property rights […]

April 23, 2022 | Inflation May Take The Food Out of Your Mouth Before it Goes Away

The experts say, “Inflation is peaking.” The experts said “Inflation is transitory.” Who you gonna believe?

April 21, 2022 | Telling the Covid Good Guys from the Bad Guys

by Justus R. Hope: How does one navigate when the traditional media all lie? How can an average person figure out who to believe? What is the truth?

April 20, 2022 | Mark Nestmann: This Is Why Internet Privacy is Gone…

by Mark Nestmann: Over the years, we haven’t shied away from highlighting the threat to our privacy that our hyper-connected world poses. Whether it’s Big Brother spying on your smartphone, Google treating your personal data as its own, or Apple proposing a plan to automatically scan your iPhone or iPad for child pornography, both Uncle […]

April 19, 2022 | Charles Hugh Smith: Debt Saturation – Off the Cliff We Go

From Charles Hugh Smith: When the system can’t borrow more and distribute the insolvency, it implodes. I started writing about debt saturation back in 2011. The basic idea is we can continue to borrow and spend as long as one of two conditions hold: 1) real (inflation-adjusted) income is rising, so there’s more income to […]

April 18, 2022 | Inflationary Psychology Has Set In. Dislodging It Won’t Be Easy

by Dr. Richard Curtin, University of Michigan: There is a high probability that a self-perpetuating wage-price spiral will develop in the next few years. Households have already become less resistant to paying higher prices and firms have become less resistant to offering higher wages. Prices and wages will continue to spiral upward until the cumulative erosion […]

April 17, 2022 | James Howard Kunstler: You’ve Been Misinformed

From James Howard Kunstler: Half the nation doesn’t believe anything it is told by those in authority and the other half revels in its reckless abuse of authority….

April 16, 2022 | Behind Bilderberg, Trilateral, WEF: The Globalists Have a Major Problem

From Jon Rappoport on No More Fake News:   Lately, I’ve been posting articles about elite power groups and their historical connections to Russia.

April 15, 2022 | Yes, It Is Different This Time

From Charles Hugh Smith at Of Two Minds: Most people would be horrified by a 40% decline in their “investments.” When bubbles pop, speculative assets don’t drop 40%, they drop 90% or even 98%. The irony of the sudden panic about real-world inflation generated by rising wages is two-fold: 1. The status quo never mentions […]

April 14, 2022 | Weaponized Dollar May Explode in America’s Face

From Brian McGlinchey’s Stark Realities Substack: There’s much to despise about economic sanctions. Aside from the fundamental immorality of making innocent individuals suffer for the sins of governments, sanctions almost universally fail to achieve the goals of those who inflict them. Nonetheless, sanctions have become the knee-jerk U.S. government response to any real or claimed foreign misdeed. According […]

April 13, 2022 | The Fed Is Scared $h*tless

From Quoth the Raven “Commentary out of the Fed over the last few weeks indicates to me that our central bankers know they are doing far too little, far too late.” The events in monetary policy over the last few weeks have reminded me of an article I wrote almost 4 years ago to the […]

April 12, 2022 | Which Leads to Doom, Which Leads to Revival: Free Money or Frugality?

From Charles Hugh Smith’s Of Two Minds blog: Clinging to delusional fantasies of “free wealth” won’t lead to positive outcomes, any more than swallowing handfuls of meds leads to “free health.” Under various guises, labels and rationalizations, “free money” has now been established as the default policy fix for any problem. Stock market falters? The solution: […]
