Take the Blue Pill if You Suffer from Conspiracy Theoritus

Labeling something a conspiracy is a common tactic to discredit a truth, and it’s especially effective on those that choose to take the Red Pill to remain in wonderland, and need an excuse for being massively uninformed.

Fast & Furious was labeled a conspiracy to protect the Obama administration from their gun running to bad guys in Mexico, which resulted in border agent Brian Terry getting murdered by one of those guns. As award winning investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson documents, Fast & Furious was true, and if the rule of law still existed, Holder and Obama would be f*ck buddies in some small prison cell.

Happy Memorial Day!

REMEMBER THE FALLEN BY NOT FALLING FOR ONE MORE GOVT LIE.

Memorial-Day-624x468

With global economies contracting under the weight of govt over-spending, corruption, and mismanagement, the age-old distractive tactic of war is once again looming.

Stocks – Get out while you still can?

I was forwarded an article from David Stockman the other day with the tag line “Get out while you still can!”.  In light of last weeks two-day sell-off, Mr. Stockman would appear to be quite the forecaster, except for the fact he has been telling his readers to get out of stocks and the dollar for years. Don’t get me wrong, I like Mr. Stockman’s experienced insights and warnings about the Deep State and the financial chaos that’s coming due to our govt’s insatiable dependence on debt and political donations to maintain their jobs, perks, and power. However, like other smart people that keep calling for the dollar and stocks to collapse (i.e. Jim Rickards, John Robino, Jim Sinclair, James Turk, Paul Craig Roberts, etc.), Stockman has been dead wrong on the response of global capital. For example, it has been the euro that has been stair-stepping downward since 08′, not the dollar. Stockman and company are easy to believe because their concern for this country seems sincere. However, their forecast results indicate they are either talking their books or they suffer the common flaw of not thinking globally.

Macron Victory Means the EU Will Land Hard

Macron’s victory in the French election ensures there will be no pressure to reform, which means the landing for the EU will be harsh in the years ahead. The establishment in France, Europe and elsewhere are breathing a sigh of relief tonight, as they will interpret the win as proof that reform is not necessary. The mainstream media will no doubt paint a picture that the EU has been saved, failing to admit that is has been the unelected bureaucrats in Brussels that put the European banks and economy on life support.

To understand how bad the problem is in the EU, imagine if our members of the House and Senate never had to face a voter. The unaccountability of the EU has produced rules and costs that are killing the economy and culture of EU countries, which is why the Brits voted to get out. France should have done the same.

Drastic reforms are needed in Europe to cushion the blow from the sovereign debt crisis that will be engulfing the EU when interest rates and the US dollar rise. Add in the lack of immigration reform which has increased the number of rapes and terrorist events, and you have a recipe for civil unrest, which does not provide the environment to attract capital.

There’s More Oil in The Golan Heights than in Saudi Arabia

Since the mainstream media works extremely hard to keep important facts from you, and feed you only with propaganda, it would be easy to miss this important story, which is one of the driving forces behind the CIA-initiated war in Syria. The other driving force that we’ve written about extensively is the desire by the US to replace Russian supplied gas to Europe with gas from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which just happens to be where the US’s biggest military bases are located in the middle East.

We also know that the conflicts in the Middle East have been fought over oil since it was first discovered in Saudi Arabia in the late 1930’s. So, how many innocent lives do you think will be sacrificed over the Golan Heights discover, which is 10 times bigger than the Saudi find?

Why You Should Care About the French Election

As we have been documenting for years, the establishment is failing its citizens around the world. In their selfish attempt to save themselves, govt’s are destroying their economy and society by increasing taxes, confiscating assets, lying, and reducing freedoms to avoid reforming themselves. These ignorant, self-centered actions are causing the capital needed for growth to park on the sidelines or head underground.

What’s happening in France right now is the result of the same govt abuses that produced Brexit and Trump. Like the US elections, all of the establishment candidates lost in the first round of French elections last week. The run-off this Sunday will be between Marine Le Pen, who some call LeTrump because she captured anti-establishment sentiments like Trump; and Emmanuel Macron, who Pepe Escobar calls “the candidate of the EU, NATO, the financial markets, the Clinton-Obama machine, the French establishment, assorted business oligarchs and the top six French media group”. Like Clinton, Macron is promising to maintain the status quo, while Le Pen wants to turn it upside-down.

Trump Trumped – Deja Vu All Over Again

Since Armstrong has more personal experience behind the curtain than any blogger, reporter, or talking head, it will be interesting to see how his twist on the latest Syrian false flag plays out. If we see more articles like the one out of Australia, that finally links the US govt to the replacement of Russian gas through Syria with gas lines from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, then you will know how desperate the establishment is to bring down Trump. However, if the media continues to sell the poison gas false flag, and ignore the energy connection, then Trump is either a moron for believing this false flag, which he condemned the first time it was tried; or he has caved into the military industrial complex and become exactly what he campaigned against. Either way, we have been duped, and if you have kids of draft age (girls or boys), plan accordingly.

The Battle of Our Lifetime

ACT LIKE AN INDIAN

Even if you don’t have a doctorate in history or read the invaluable lessons of Martin Armstrong, which are predicated upon understanding cycles, following the money, and observing the predictable passions of man; you should be able to assess what lies ahead, if you simply step back and connect the dots. Capital always concentrates with individuals, market sectors, and nations. In 1981 the bubble was in interest rates. In 1985 it was the dollar, and in 1989 the bubble was in Japan, followed by SE Asia in 1994 and Russia in 1998. The next bubble was in the tech sector in 2000, followed by real estate in 2007, and the latest and biggest bubble that is in the  process of popping is govt bonds.

Going back further in time, the Great Depression was caused by capital fleeing Europe due to WWI, which created the roaring 20’s, and culminated in the stock market doubling in the last year before crashing in 1929. The 29′ crash was exacerbated by the fact that east coast banks and insurance companies had shipped large amounts of capital to San Francisco to rebuild after the 1906 earthquake. Thus, it was not around to thwart the bank runs. Everything is connected, if you just follow the money. To explain what is interconnected today, and how it will impact our future is not a simple task, but Rome was not built-in a day. So, grab a bottle of wine and not a gun, as we look behind the curtain and peer into the future.

The heart of a healthy economy and prosperity are confidence, trust, and maximum freedom. If consumers and businesses feel confident, they spend and invest. However, if ideas and capital can’t flow freely, businesses and value are not efficiently created. The most feeble economies in the world are those with rampant govt corruption and little confidence, which can’t attract the capital needed for growth. When you have an anemic economy run by career politicians, the result is less freedom and ever-increasing taxes, fees, and asset forfeitures to maintain govt jobs, perks, and power.

Step back and put your ear to ground like the Indians used to do and ask yourself, is govt coming or going? Is trust, confidence and freedom on the rise? One must also be able to think globally, and realize that because everything is connected it’s not a linear world. The media, talking heads and politicians tell us that employment, the stock market and dollar are up because of Trump’s policies, and if interest rates rise the economy will decline, or if the dollar declines gold will rise. All of these “if this/then that” statements are meant to manipulate us, as they are certainly not true over time. What if stocks and the dollar are up because of the chaos in the EU, Japan, the Middle East and South China Sea, causing global capital to seek the relative safety of dollar-based assets? The establishment doesn’t debate these topics because they are either ignorant or want to keep the facts from you.

Can Trump Shut Down B&B’s?

In our world of headlines for hits, I have no doubt that the establishment (i.e. Democrats, Republicans, the presstitute media, IMF, UN, EU, the military & healthcare industrial complexes, etc.) will try to convince the masses that Trump wants to shut down immigrant mom & pop B&B’s throughout America to reduce competition for Trump hotels. If the anti-Trump sheeple can get beyond the headlines, and set aside their propaganda-fed hate, they would find that the B&B’s to which I refer are the Bribes & Blackmail that infests DC. I assume we can agree that ridding DC of these corrupt acts would be a good thing.

Breaking News: Russia Caused Global Warming

Just in case the last fake news false flag by the Establishment was inadequate, this fake news story should convince the masses to lay down their arms and beg the govt to impose martial law. In an effort to thwart the global warming tax scheme, Russia has hacked the data of bribed scientists, and changed it to show record cooling would occur this year. In what can only be described as miraculous, the weather cooperated.

The reality is Russia wishes they could start warming the world, as Moscow, like Europe, Japan, and the US, are under a deep freeze. As more winters like this one keep occurring, and people realize we are actually heading into a mini ice age, more people will finally start questioning the lies of the gloBull warming propagandist, just as they did with Obamacare. The question is will laws and taxes already have been implemented. As long as Trump can stay alive, this Obamanation can be postponed.
