Economics 2019 – where we are now

I will start of this collection with The Unraveling. A post rich with charts, examples, data and ultimately the truth. Click on the link above to check it out. I give you a few paragraphs below. The chart to the right, by the way, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt who is manipulating, and who is winning the cultural battle for dominance. Allowing them THAT VICTORY is a choice average people make. The unraveling is gathering momentum because prices have been pushing higher while wages lag, feeding the rising precariousness and inequality of our economy. In our era, trust in the legitimacy of our institutions is unraveling because the statistics presented as “facts” are so clearly designed to support […]

dumb-ocracy

Knowledgeable students of political science, like those who were in 1778 Philadelphia, understand democracy to be arguably The Worst form of government known to mankind. Alternatively known as mob rule, and mobocracy, the majority takes from the minority until all productivity shrinks to what little the producers can defend from the confiscators. It is not accidental, by the way, that educational institutions were taken from the people by local governments, from local by state governments and finally controlled by the central government – which, in turn, stopped teaching The Constitution, that this country was legally a republic, and began the ritualistic chanting of pro democracy sologans. In the article below, Doug Casey does a very good job of explaining […]

Dr. Copper on our economic future

Economists call the spot price of copper, “Dr. Copper” because it is such a reliable indicator of our economy. The metal is used in manufacturing, construction, automobiles, electronics … darn-near all the hard goods created in our world have significant copper content. When producers stop ordering copper, supply-and-demand makes it cheaper. Plunging copper prices are a sure indicator that production has slowed down. Next up will be laying off human employees which will reduce incomes, in turn reducing demand for manufactured stuff. On a related note, the money manipulators, also known as central banks, and locally as the Feral Reserve, are cheapening world currencies to keep the economies artifically alive. The downside to that response is that each yen, […]

Milton Friedman the Trojan Horse economist

Admired by many who understand the unmitigated disaster that is Keynesian economics, Milton believed and acted as though being A Little Bit Pregnant was do-able. He was somewhat non-Keynesian, but way too much a statist and apologist for big government and central bank theft. Friedman only gets part of what government did to create The Great Depression. FDR’s Folly and Rothbard’s America’s Great Depression explain in detail that every diversion of resources from the private sector to government exacerbated the problem. His championing “steady, moderate” expansion of the money supply is arguing for a modest amount of outright theft from productive people to the banksters. Five percent a year adds up A LOT in the long run. Government make-work […]

Bowling Alone

How Washington Has Helped Destroy American Civil Society and Family Life from Ammo.com Church attendance in the United States is at an all-time low, according to a Gallup poll released in April 2019. This decline has not been a steady one. Indeed, over the last 20 years, church attendance has fallen by 20 percent. This might not sound like cause for concern off the bat. And if you’re not a person of faith, you might rightly wonder why you would care about such a thing. Church attendance is simply a measure of something deeper: social cohesion. It’s worth noting that the religions with the highest rate of attendance according to Pew Forum have almost notoriously high levels of social […]

why poor folk are poor

The Kaiser Report often nails it. This is one of those. It is an introduction to their “Summer Solutions” series. They cover a lot of turf in an overview fashion. It is certainly a good way to decide if you wish to see more detailed discussion by them of the pieces herein. – Ted

Are You Ready For Total Currency War?

By Ron Holland “Are you ready for total war?” “Sind Sie bereit für totalen Krieg?” – Joseph Goebbels On February 18, 1943, German Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels delivered a rousing speech at the Berlin Sportpalast, asking the German people, “Sind Sie bereit für totalen Krieg?” or “Are you ready for total War?” Germany had planned for Blitzkrieg and a short war and was unprepared for a world war as the combined military forces of the United States, England and the Soviet Union crushed the Reich relentlessly and systematically. Although the people and economy rallied in defense of Germany, total war only prolonged the horrors of war and delayed their inevitable defeat. Today, 72 years later, another quasi-fascist empire formerly at […]

redefining “breadwinners”

How do you turn a great culture into a dump? The turning point was LBJ’s Great Society in the year following the October 1964 assassination of President John Kennedy. The State has too many Breadwinners The State of Illinois’ debt Is currently $203,000,000,000.00 (billion) and growing rapidly. One reason is: The state has too many “breadwinners”. Hard to believe but it’s happening all over the country… An emergency room physician in Chicago tells of a woman in her late 20’s came into the ER with her 8th pregnancy. She told the doctor: “My Momma told me that I am the ‘breadwinner’ for the family.” He asked her to explain. She said that she can make babies and babies get money […]

homelessness, unemployment and immigration

Honest investigative reporters are looking into this and finding official stories are “truth challenged” to say the least. It is not as if the information is unavailable. Here are three sources that are not afraid of telling the real story. You really deserve to know what is going on. It enables you to judge the charlatans VS those who would like to solve the real problems. The Ron Paul Liberty Report: Unemployment:​ Record Low. Homelessness: Record High. Something’s Fishy. ———————— Just for perspective, here are the real numbers compared to the books our government has been cooking for the last thirty years. Ron Paul mentioned the disparity under his breath. Insiders know the truth has been a victim. Ron also […]

Congress adds insult to injury

. The unconstitutional tax on productivity created to pay the interest on money the Federal Reserve prints out of thin air should be bad enough. But NOOooooo, Congress is now working on preventing the IRS from enabling taxpayers to personally process the paperwork and money transfer via the Internet. We wouldn’t want the little people funding this scam to have a bit of convenience and relief. Pretty obvious who the congresscritters work for… whoever will pay them little bonuses above and beyond the generous salary they are given. H&R Block and Turbo Tax will charge each taxpayer a bit more to cover what they send to the best politicians money can buy. Thus we pay extra to lobby for paying […]

precious metals pricing

Real exchanges of physical metals do not determine market prices of gold, silver, platinum and other high-value metals. Pricing is established through exchanges of paper, or more accurately today, computer promises of metal that the buyers and sellers do not own and never will. The commodities exchange, now called COMEX was established in 1933 as part of their major reset of wealth distribution world-wide. The robber barons fixed it so the elites could take their money and power into the stratosphere while the great masses would have less and less of both due to structural changes they made from 1913 on. What does a market rigged by the banksters look like? The primary features are prices unconnected to the value […]

the thinking behind the apparent insanity

American Partisan published an excellent article by one of my favorite authors, Matt Bracken. His excellent books including Enemies Foreign And Domestic, Castigo Cay, and several other really good ones I have read. He has great expertise in the cultural, sociological and warfare aspects of which he writes. Today I found his American Partisan article adalyzing why the Covington Catholic school boys were badgered by a crowd, how the media turned the incident upside down, the subsequent outing of lamestream’s duplicity and, most importantly, what that means to us today. I encourage you to pursue the link I placed in the headline and read the whole article. – Ted “Bracken: Covington Gives a Glimpse of Civil War Two … […]

indicators

I am confident it will blow. Too many aspects of our socio-political world are at the brink and some with significant velocity heading towards their particular precipice. When, how much, and which ones are unknowns, but The End Of The World As We Know It (TEOTWAWKI) is coming soon. I watch a lot of indicators. Knowing early is important. The prices of gold and silver are controlled by the major players in the COMEX, the commercial metals exchange market. Over 95 percent of the trades are paper promises, unrelated to the actual metal. The biggest criminal organizations in the world keep these prices artificially low for a number of reasons, all related to their wealth and power. This tells us […]

Why is everything so expensive?

When I whine about the price of some cool tool, groceries or other useful item, my wife always throws my words in my face: It is not that the price of anything has gone up, but that the dollar is worth less. Our measurement device is our dollar. What does it take to earn one and what does it buy? If your yardstick is soft rubber, it tells you next to nothing. That is where we are today. Look at that chart. Until about 1950 a penny was real money. There was even a coin called “a mill”, which was on tenth of a cent or one thousandth of a dollar. I mean a real coin that was carried, […]
