ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR INVESTMENT PROFESSIONAL BEFORE MAKING ANY INVESTMENT DECISION

April 13, 2019 | Debunking Albert Pike’s WWIII “Prediction”

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. It’s 1871. August 15th, to be precise. The eminent American Freemason, Scottish Rite Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike, sits down at his desk and, by the flickering light of a candle, composes a letter to his friend and fellow Mason, the Italian politician Giuseppe Mazzini. “The First […]

April 6, 2019 | The Next World Reserve Currency

We’ve all seen some version of the following chart: It purports to show the changeover in world reserve currencies from one era to the next, and tracks the rise (and fall) of the various colonial empires of the last several hundred years, from the Portuguese to the Spanish to the Dutch to the French to […]

March 30, 2019 | Japan’s Emperor Is Abdicating. Here’s What It Means.

Sometime this weekend, the cabinet members of Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party will be locked in a room without communication devices of any kind. Not so much as a smartwatch will remain as they engage in deliberations, and they will stay locked in that room until the decision that they reach is announced to the […]

March 27, 2019 | Do Humans Have Free Will? Not If Big Tech Wins!

Do humans have free will? That question has puzzled philosophers for millennia and has generated fierce debates. Perhaps the only thing more contentious than the question are the implications of its answer. If man has no free will, then how can there be moral responsibility? But don’t worry, dear frazzled philosophers! You can now rest […]

March 23, 2019 | Do Humans Have Free Will? Not If Big Tech Wins!

Do humans have free will? That question has puzzled philosophers for millennia and has generated fierce debates. Perhaps the only thing more contentious than the question are the implications of its answer. If man has no free will, then how can there be moral responsibility?

March 16, 2019 | What Does A Demographic Crunch Look Like?

What comes to your mind when you hear the words “demographic crunch”? If you’re like much of the general public, having been steeped their whole lives in propaganda pimping the debunked notion of an “overpopulation crisis,” you probably won’t even know what the term “demographic crunch” means. But you, dear reader, are not part of the general […]

March 10, 2019 | False Flags Over Kashmir

n response to a suicide bombing in Kashmir that killed 40 Indian paramilitaries last month, the Indian Air Force struck targets in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province. I imagine that many readers around the world today would read that sentence the way that 105 years ago they would have read the sentence: “A Bosnian separatist shot […]

March 2, 2019 | What On Earth Is Happening This Week?

Are you sick of Smollett? Fed up with fake news? Tired of tawdry tabloid trash disguised as “news”? Well, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a number of interesting stories from around the world that you might have missed if you’re only following the dinosaur media newsfeed. The Trump-Kim summit has ended with a […]

February 27, 2019 | The Truth About the International Criminal Court

As a well-known adage holds: “To the victor go the spoils.” But it might well add: “And the losers go to the gallows.” This is the logic of victor’s justice. It is the logic of the Treaty of Versailles, which demanded un-payable reparations from the vanquished German nation. It is the logic of the Tokyo […]

February 16, 2019 | The Technocratic Agenda Behind the “Green New Deal”

You may have seen “Students Love Green New Deal… Until Hearing What’s In It” by now, but if not you probably get the gist just from the title. Yes, it’s one of those “man on the street” interview videos where random college students are asked whether they support new progressive superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (“AOC” to […]

February 10, 2019 | America is ALREADY a Socialist Country

So it seems that something in Trump’s State of the Union speech has gotten the MAGA crowd all excited. Was it this? “My administration has acted decisively to confront the world’s leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran. It is a radical regime. They do bad, bad things.” Or this? “Two weeks […]

February 2, 2019 | Fake News: Economics Edition

Just when you thought “fake news” was only about those dastardly Russians hiding under every bed, Japan comes out and admits that 40% of its economic data is bogus. That’s right, a report from Japan’s Internal Affairs Ministry this week reveals that 22 of the 56 key economic statistics reported by the government are faulty and “that irregularities […]

January 26, 2019 | Has the Chinese Dragon Been Tamed?

Chinese President-for-Life Xi Jinping is warning that the glorious Communist Party of China (CPC) “is facing long-term and complex tests in terms of maintaining long-term rule, reform and opening-up, a market-driven economy, and within the external environment.” Or at least that’s how BilderBloomBerg is putting it. Rothschild Reuters, for its part, is characterizing Xi’s latest pronouncement as a warning about […]

January 20, 2019 | The Truth About the Royal Institute of International Affairs

Readers of this column will know all about the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) by now. The CFR’s influence in setting Washington’s foreign policy agenda was once derided as “conspiracy theory.” But, as is often the case, that “conspiracy theory” is now a simple truism that is openly joked about by the conspirators themselves. (A Chatham House video about […]

January 12, 2019 | No One Hates Free Markets Like the Banksters

It’s no secret that governments hate the free market. At its base, every single government tax, license, regulation and restriction is an implicit rebuke of the idea that humans should be able to interact freely with those around them. This is old news to my long-term readers, but it bears repeating because many have been […]

January 5, 2019 | 5 Outrageous New Year’s Predictions

Sick of the same old, same old boring list of predictable, safe New Year’s predictions that are so vague they can’t possibly come true? (Weaponized narratives, indeed!). Yeah. So am I. So in the spirit of spicing things up for this post-holiday hangover season, let’s kick the year off with a bunch of outrageous predictions […]

December 15, 2018 | Venezuela Joins the Social Credit Club

So you know all about China’s social credit system by now, right? You know, the one that I’ve been talking about for years? The one that we had a sneak preview of 8 years ago in “You Are Being Gamed?” The one that’s being trial ballooned at home via Carrot Rewards and other “motivational” point systems? Yes, I dare say you […]

December 8, 2018 | The People vs. Paris

“Let them eat carbon!” said French President Emmanuel Macron this week, offering his peasants a six-month reprieve on their coming carbon sin tax. And, kicking his feet up on his desk at the Élysée Palace, he breathed a sigh of relief. He had bought himself some time to figure out how to deal with the […]

November 30, 2018 | War Profiteering in WWI

As the most decorated Marine in the history of the United States at the time of his death, Smedley Butler knew of what he spoke. Having seen the minting of those tens of thousands of “new millionaires and billionaires” out of the blood of his fellow soldiers, his famous rallying cry, War Is A Racket, has […]

November 18, 2018 | SEC Launches Glitchy Database To Prevent Another Flash Crash

Playing in the (manipulated and rigged) stock market is not for the faint of heart. Things can turn on a dime and that sure-fire stock you’re riding today might just revert to its intrinsic value (i.e. zero) tomorrow. But as exciting as the markets can be, they’re rarely as terrifying as that 35 minute window from 2:32 […]

October 27, 2018 | How (Not) to Pop a Bubble

It may not have been the craziest headline that the Trump whirlwind has generated in recent months, but you might have seen it amidst all the Stormy Kavanaghs out there: Trump says Fed is his ‘biggest threat’ because it is raising rates too fast . This latest outburst is just one more example of a pattern we have […]

October 20, 2018 | What is an NPC and Why Does it Matter?

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. […]

October 14, 2018 | Crime Pays (If you’re in Government)

“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 […]

September 30, 2018 | Uncle Sam Prepares His Robot Army

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 […]

September 22, 2018 | Did the Korean War End This Week?

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 […]
