ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR INVESTMENT PROFESSIONAL BEFORE MAKING ANY INVESTMENT DECISION

March 28, 2020 | Committing Coronavirus Thoughtcrime

Pssst. You. Yeah, you. Are you interested in talking about . . . things? You know, the kind of things that we’re not allowed to talk about anymore? You know, since the . . . uhhh . . . “The Event“? You are? Great. I mean, you might have noticed things are getting a bit […]

March 21, 2020 | WWIII Has Begun

Here’s a question for you: How do you know when you’re at war? When there are troops on the streets? When mass panic hits? When there’s martial law and the public is told to batten down the hatches for a months or years-long siege? When world “leaders” tell their populations that the enemy is to […]

March 14, 2020 | Your Guide to Surviving A Crisis

I was going to start off this week with a recap of the craziness that unfolded in recent days as full-on pandemic panic set in in the United States, but leave it to Twitter to come up with the pithiest summary: “What a year this last half hour has been.” That’s one way of capturing the […]

March 7, 2020 | The Rollercoaster Ride Has Begun

Last week in this column, as you might recall, I noted that the coronavirus panic had already produced “the worst week in the markets since the financial crisis, including the worst two-day point drop in Dow Jones history.” And I also warned that “the economic effects of this event are going to be very real and very profound.” […]

February 8, 2020 | 5 Important Lessons Absolutely No One Will Learn From Iowa

In case you missed this week’s insanity in Iowa (and if you did, good for you!), here is the entire debacle in one ridiculously long run-on sentence: The Iowa Democratic Party thought it would be a really swell idea to set the tone of the Democratic primary season by using their first-in-the-nation, widely touted, closely […]

January 25, 2020 | Did Russia Just Undergo Regime Change?

Good morning, students. It’s time for Media Literacy 101. Are you sitting comfortably? Then let’s begin. Have you ever heard of Betteridge’s Law of Headlines? It is a journalistic maxim formulated by Ian Betteridge which holds that “any headline which ends in a question mark can be answered by the word ‘no.’” So let’s apply that rule […]

January 18, 2020 | When Is A Camera Not A Camera

Here’s a riddle for you: When is a camera not a camera? It may not sound as important as The Riddle of the Sphinx, but let me assure you it speaks to the very nature of the reality we live in. And it has a simple answer: When is a camera not a camera? When the […]

January 11, 2020 | The 2020s: A Peek at the Decade Ahead (Part 2)

Last week in these pages we looked at the ways in which the 2020s are likely to be shaped by the billionaire charlatans of the tech world. From the transhumanism being pushed by the Zuckerbergs and Musks and Kurzweils of the world to the weaponization of space (which is being obscured by space tourism and […]

January 4, 2020 | The 2020s: A Peek Ahead (Part 1)

Well, that didn’t take long. You’ll recall that it was mere weeks ago that I predicted that the trend of 2020 would be “The End of the Internet (as we’ve known it),” and, sadly, before 2019 was even finished a steady stream of stories flooded the newswires to prove me correct. Morocco has sentenced a […]

December 21, 2019 | The 2010s: The Decade in Review

t’s December of 2019, so you know what that means: We’ve arrived at that special time when newsletter writers start penning their “Decade in Review” articles and pedants vainly contend that “aKtUAlLy, the new decade doesn’t start until 2021!” So let’s ignore the pedants and get to that moment you’ve all been waiting for: The […]

December 14, 2019 | Who’s Afraid of Decentralized Currency?

I’ve noticed an interesting phenomenon in my 12 years of watching the news headlines for a living: Stories often pop up in mirror image pairs. Take these two recent stories, for example. One from the Department of (in)Justice: “Manhattan U.S. Attorney Announces Arrest Of United States Citizen For Assisting North Korea In Evading Sanctions.” And […]

December 7, 2019 | NATO in Chaos After Birthday Bash Bust

Unlike a lot of other North Atlantic Treaty Organization summits, you might actually have seen some mainstream news coverage of the group’s 70th anniversary meeting that just wrapped up in London this week. But if you did see such coverage, it was probably limited to discussing the theatrics and fireworks surrounding the event rather than […]

November 23, 2019 | How To Protest (Extinction Rebellion Style!)

So you’ve decided to get off your butt and save the planet. About time! what was it that put you over the edge? Was it the impassioned plea to “Act Now” because “Our House is Flooding!” Or was it the finger-wagging “How dare you?” of everyone’s favorite Klimajugend? Or maybe it was  the shocking revelation […]

November 16, 2019 | Your Guide to the Protests Flaring Up Around the Globe

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the world is on fire right now. From protests and riots to bloodshed and coups d’état, it seems that every corner of the globe is being rocked by an explosion of unrest . . . and no, I’m not talking about the Great Popeyes Chicken Freakouts of 2019. So, in […]

November 9, 2019 | What You Need to Know About the Saudi Aramco IPO

After years of teasing, the moment has finally arrived: Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (hereinafter dubbed “MbS” or “the Clown Prince”) has announced the Saudi government’s intention to float a stake in Saudi Aramco. As you no doubt already know (because you watch New World Next Week every week, right?), the world’s largest oil company […]

October 26, 2019 | The Religion of Government

“The President of the United States is in danger of losing the mandate of heaven.” Thus spake Pat Robertson during the recent brouhaha over Syria where the unthinkable notion that the US might actually pull out of a war zone instead of putting more troops in it began to materialize last week. Now, you might be tempted […]

October 9, 2019 | The World’s Largest (Democratic!) Biometric Prison

Whenever they talk about India and its “inevitable” rise to world economic dominance, establishment hacks like Thomas “Iraq War booster” Friedman always seem compelled to note that the country is “the world’s largest democracy.” They might want to talk to the residents of the now-defunct Jammu & Kashmir before invoking that phrase, but the underlying point seems […]

October 6, 2019 | The World’s Largest (Democratic!) Biometric Prison

Whenever they talk about India and its “inevitable” rise to world economic dominance, establishment hacks like Thomas “Iraq War booster” Friedman always seem compelled to note that the country is “the world’s largest democracy.” They might want to talk to the residents of the now-defunct Jammu & Kashmir before invoking that phrase, but the underlying point seems […]

September 28, 2019 | The “State of the World” Address, Translated From the Globalese

Can you believe it’s late September once again? That magical time of year when an old globalists’ fancy turns to world domination and the world waits with baited breath for the United Nations Secretary-General to deliver his annual “State of the World” address to the UN General Assembly gathered in New York. . . .Oh, […]

September 21, 2019 | How the Global Banking Mafia Operates

Five years ago in the pages of this very column I examined “The Ratings Game: Rating agencies as weapons of economic warfare.” In that article, I explained how the major credit ratings agencies—Standard & Poor’s (S&P), Moody’s, and Fitch Ratings—act as adjuncts of the US State Department, targeting Uncle Sam’s enemies with strategic credit downgrades […]

September 14, 2019 | Not Even the 9/11 Commissioners Trust the 9/11 Commission

Of all the 9/11 whistleblowers, perhaps the most noteworthy are the 9/11 Commissioners themselves. The 9/11 Commission (formally “The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States”) was set up by President George W. Bush, who dragged his heels a full 441 days before finally establishing a body to investigate the events of September […]

September 1, 2019 | Meet the Plunge Protection Team

As I pointed out in this week’s #PropagandaWatch video, the stock market is often portrayed in the financial media as a magical crystal ball that can predict the future and see into the hearts and minds of men. We are routinely told that it shows us the resilience of consumers, for example, or that it […]

August 24, 2019 | It’s Good To Be King (of Thailand)

Did you catch the video that made the rounds recently showing Thai King Maha Vajiralongkorn (reigning title: Phrabat Somdet Phra Vajira Klao Chao Yu Hua, but we’ll just call him by the simpler title Rama X) promoting his girlfriend to “Royal Noble Consort“? You know, the video where Major-General Sineenat Wongvajirapakdi lay completely prostrate at the monarch’s […]

August 17, 2019 | Hong Kong: Chaos Before the Order

When Fox News talking head Kathleen “KT” McFarland had ex-Reagan stooge Michael Pillsbury on her “Defcon 3” web show in 2014 to discuss the so-called Umbrella Movement protests which were then raging across Hong Kong, she got more than she bargained for. Noting that “Chinese state-owned media” were alleging that the protests were “all the […]

August 10, 2019 | The Kashmir Crisis

Just one short week ago, you could have been forgiven for thinking that the False Flags Over Kashmir that I wrote about in this very column in March had blown over, and that everything in the highly contentious Kashmir region connecting India, Pakistan and China was back to normal. Maybe it had all been political posturing in […]
