How “Trailer-trash” Hillary Will Crash & Burn

How do powerful people typically crash and burn? In a word, hubris.

Former Speaker Hastert Sentenced for Sexual Abuse

What did you think when you heard that Denny Hestert was sentenced to 15 months for abusing teenagers? Did you think how can 15 months compensate for a lifetime of anguish? What about the Jerry Sandusky case, where so many people ignored the obvious to protect their self-interest? What about all …

Obama to Make Refugee Crisis Worse

The Syrian refugee crisis, made worse by career politicians like Merkel, will never be solved by career politicians, no matter how much the citizens disagree with the bureaucrats.

Proof Central Bankers are Clueless

As discussed yesterday in “The War on Cash”, the Bank of Japan has followed the ECB down the black hole of negative interest rates. Now, if I told you that your bank was going to charge you to keep your money in the bank, what would you do? Based on Japan’s …

The FBI is Lying – What a Surprise

Denninger has documented the FBI lies, repeatedly, regarding Apple’s lack of cooperation in iPhone-gate. Anyone that understands the FBI’s involvement in the so-called terrorist attacks, and many other frauds throughout their history, should not be surprised. However, a majority believe the propaganda, at least that is what the polls tell us we should think.
