The Great Recession

The drumbeats of war are picking up the pace of inflation. Inflation, as I’ve argued here for some time, was certain to rise for months to come; but you’ll see in the various inflation notes below that sanctions made in response to the war are increasing inflation even more, as could be expected, and shortages due to the war are driving up costs as well. Continue reading “The Relentless March of Inflation to the Drumbeats of War is Killing us All”

A new report by the conservative Peterson Institute for International Economics says, “China Was Never On Path to Meet ‘Phase 1’ Purchase Commitments.”

The report confirms my claim in December, 2019, that Trump offered a fake Phase One deal because he had failed in his trade war and needed a win for his campaign. Continue reading “The “No-Deal Deal” with China Turned out to be the “Never-Done Deal””

With CPI hitting a 40-year high today, as economists anticipated it would, inflation has shown us it is going to keep getting worse. People in some areas of the nation are already alarmed about food shortages. Prices are rising as shelves go empty. So are tempers. Continue reading “Food Shortages Punching the Populace in the Gut”

The world has become more stupid than I ever thought human beings could collectively become, and I was always certain that human beings could be quite stupid! Today, the stupid train picked up a full load, hit full velocity and flew off the rails. This medical news strains the outer limits of my mind.

Leonard Glenn Francis is a Malaysian businessman who infiltrated the greatest power on the high seas and built a billion-dollar empire by providing officers with orgies, Dom Pérignon champagne and security paid for by the USA. And, now he’s squealing like a … rat.  Continue reading “Want to Know Where Your Money Goes? Sex, lies and the United States Navy — Meet “Fat Leonard””

When the LA Times wrote that “A record 4.5 million Americans quit their jobs in November,” they said it was…

a sign of confidence and more evidence that the U.S. job market is bouncing back strongly from last year’s coronavirus recession.

The following is a truly ugly example of how desperately the grinchy health authorities are already rushing in to change the narrative about COVID and vaccines in order to keep their vaccine sales pitch going now that Omicron is rendering the vaccines worse than worthless: Continue reading “Omicron Forces “Health Experts” to Rush to Turn the Narrative”

The Great Recession

“All you’ll feel is just a little pinch,” said the friendly nurse as she injected one of the world’s new favorite vaccines into a child’s arm.

The WHOs in COVID-impoverished WHOvilles could be heard all over the world joining in chorus to sing, “We wish you a weary Christmas” as they laid out their Christmas booster campaigns and ordered shops in towns and villages from Austria to Australia to lockdown before presents could be bought and placed under trees. Then, just before Christmas arrived, they rolled up the sidewalks and shut down plays and restaurants, too, to make sure no fun was had. They even shut down airlines with thematic names like “Delta” so that families could not travel for the holidays. Continue reading “The Pinch That Stole Christmas”

I started this two-part series on “COVID War Crimes” talking about Lara Logan’s chastised claim that Dr. Fauci could be compared to Josef Mengele, the Nazi war doctor. It is only appropriate, then, that I open the second article with a story that I came across right after publication of the first article about how the vax war has reached peak lunacy now that German doctors will only help you kill yourself if you have been vaccinated:  Continue reading “US Government’s COVID War Crimes Against Humanity – Part 2”

The Great Recession

Lara Logan, the host of Fox Nation, has been heavily criticized this past week for comparing Dr. Anthony Fauci to Josef Mengele, the saddistic Nazi doctor whose ghost probably still crawls along the concrete corridors of Auschwitz, looking for Jews to torture, but how far off the mark is she?

Logan, who never shies from controversy, brought criticism on herself from “all across the world” by saying, Continue reading “US Government’s COVID War Crimes Against Humanity”

The Great Recession

Interestingly, you’re about to find out that the fall in housing prices and home sales may power us further into high inflation for longer. We are entering a situation that could turn into a true oxymoron where lower prices equal higher prices as early as this week at the Fed’s Federal Open Market Committee meeting. I’ll tell you how that works. Continue reading “Housing Prices Slide after Housing Sales Fall”

When asked about where inflation is now and how it relates to how high the Fed thought inflation would reach and what the Fed’s targets for inflation really are, Powell made it clear that inflation is running much hotter than the Fed thought it would be and for longer:  Continue reading “Powell Admits in Congressional Testimony Inflation is Hotter and More Concerning than the Fed Expected”

The S&P 500 failed a breakthrough on Thursday and tucked its head back below its 4200 ceiling again, where it has remained rangebound for weeks. Job news on the economic front that many analysts toasted as great could not lift sentiment out of the doldrums on Thursday, nor could it stop Netflix from making its first death cross in more than two years. Falling below its 200-day moving average is generally regarded as a sign that a stock is trending down for the longer term. Continue reading “Fed Falls for its Own Inflation Fakery”

The Great Recession

The most interesting thing about what the Fed is now doing is that it is illegal. The Fed’s argument that it is not monetizing the US debt fails now on its own terms. The Fed is buying treasuries for no purpose other than to directly finance the government’s escalating debt. Here’s the deal:

The drastic moves by the Feds and Fed throughout 2020 sidetracked us without any discussion straight into Modern Monetary Theory, which claims the government can create as much debt as it wants forever and the Fed can directly finance that debt forever with the only bound being the restraints of inflation. Continue reading “The Fed’s Argument That It’s Not Directly Financing Government Debt Finally Fails”

On March 31, RT published an article titled, “‘Beyond farce’: CNN states there’s ‘no consensus criteria’ to determine child’s sex at birth.” The article revealed how CNN writers now find it difficult to tell if it’s a boy or a girl at birth by peaking under the cloth. CNN reporter Devan Cole became so extreme as to state there is “no consensus criteria for assigning sex at birth.”

Amazon is beating its brick-and-mortar rival, Walmart, for subhuman work conditions. As happened with Walmart, the retail behemoth of virtual space is increasingly developing a monstrous reputation. Walmart had to make major changes as public scorn grew against it. Amazon will, too.

Is it Amazon’s right to be greedy in order to maximize profits for stockholders? Of course it is! It is also everyone else’s right to hate them for it. Increasingly, many do. That’s part of being a world citizen. Plain and simple. Continue reading “Amazon is the New Walmart of the Workplace”

The state’s new ‘Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum’ extends the left’s cultural dominance of California’s public education system, and seeks to destroy the ‘Christianity, capitalism and racism’ white settlers brought to America.

The Department of Education in California – where else? – has approved a 900-page “Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum” designed to “decolonize” America. The program aims to right the supposed wrongs of the imperial Christianity that swept the Americas clean of their indigenous religions. The curriculum’s core promise is that it will help root out Christianity, and the capitalism and racism that apparently came with it.

“Remember that the market is a forward-looking indicator. Ideally, it is pricing in the gains of the next six to 18 months.”

(Seeking Alpha)

Famous last words again and again. That sunny advice about today’s overpriced market was repeated again about a week ago. It is the same excuse that was routinely deployed at the beginning of this rally back in April and May and especially in June and July as the market recovered most of its losses in spite of all the gloom. “These prices are justified,” they said, “because the all-wise market looks forward six months or more, and by the start of 2020, the economy will have almost completely recovered.” Continue reading “Stock Market as Forward Looking as a Caboose”

How the QAnon conspiracy theory attracted millions of followers, many of whom were willing to drink the Kool Aid and die for their beliefs, will always be for me one of the modern marvels of mankind. Somehow it was easier and more logical for millions of people who needed hope to believe Bill and Hillary Clinton were reptilian aliens who were leading a pedophile cult that secretly gathered to eat babies in the basement of a pizzeria that served as a front for their underground sex-trafficking railroad to Epstein Island than to simply believe Donald Trump was inept.
