When the Bubble Pops, Will You Be Ready?

img 0571

The Government’s COVID-19 response was met with the obvious effects like the lockdowns that decimated the lives of millions to little to no effect on mitigating the spread, mask mandates, or even vaccination mandates. But underlying all of the obvious issues was that of economic destruction being laid down before the American people in the form of the Federal Reserve’s response to the economic collapse caused by lockdowns. The Federal Reserve has laid down a suicide path for the United States’ economy. The money supply is created in part by the private banks making loans and the Federal...

The Inflationary Attack on America’s Poor

united states federal reserve system symbol.

The ramp-up of money-printing by the Federal Reserve Bank since the COVID pandemic began has meant, like clockwork, an increase in CPI price inflation exceeding a seven percent annual rate. Though price inflation as measured by the CPI was temporarily delayed by the crosswinds of the shutdown-induced recession, the Fed inflation of the currency had already enriched the financial sector and created a wider income divide between the top one percent and the rest of the people. And this has not gone unnoticed by the political left, even if they remain ignorant of the real economic causes....

“It’s my understanding that a guy can go out there and I mean, he can fall into a black hole,” Jefferson County District Attorney Danny Carr said of drivers getting entangled financially. “You know, we’ve had a lot of issues with Brookside.” Jefferson County Sheriff Mark Pettway said the same. “We get calls about Brookside quite regularly because they really go outside their jurisdiction to stop people,” Pettway said. “Most of the time people get stopped, they’re going to get a ticket. And they’re saying they were nowhere near Brookside.” Police stops soared between 2018 and 2020. Fines...

Lunatic With a Plan: Erdogan and Turkey’s Economic Woes

vladimir putin and recep tayyip erdoğan (2015 06 13) 3

Since the first assault on Turkey’s finances in 2018, which I wrote about multiple times (here, here, and here), I’ve been the lone voice telling everyone that President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is a lunatic but he’s a lunatic with a plan. That plan is to de-dollarize the economy of a valuable member of NATO geostrategically. Since the first shots across the bow by the Trump administration at Erdogan’s toying with those powers east of the Bosporus (Russia, China and Iran) the Turkish lira has been the primary mode of attack against Erdogan. Erdogan has pursued what has been deemed unorthodox...

Alex Gladstein: The End Of Super Imperialism

2021 11 15 07 46

"How did, as Hudson puts it, “America’s ideal of implementing laissez-faire economic institutions, political democracy, and a dismantling of formal empires and colonial systems” turn into a system where the U.S. forced other nations to pay for its wars, defaulted on its debt, and exploited developing economies?"

The Secret Is Out And it Can No Longer Be Denied

2021 05 19 07 44

“I don’t think there has been a greater engine of inequality than the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States”.   Stan Druckenmiller "Americans should increasingly question the role of the Fed and its impact on society. It’s not normal, nor should it be, that the economy keeps running from bust to bust to bust and requires ever more debt and intervention to “save it” from the fall out of the asset bubbles the Fed has propagated time and time again. And markets are again, as Druckenmiller has pointed out, in a massive asset bubble as the Fed arrogantly and fanatically insists on...

Congress Gives Billion to Foreign Governments and Pennies to Americans

COI_Logo

On COI #50, Kyle breaks down the $2.4 trillion dollar spending bill passed by both houses of Congress. Many of our Representatives are pitching the $600 check each American will receive as a huge boon for us. However, the bill gives billions to foreign countries while putting Americans on the hook for $10,000s of dollars of debt. The bill gives $3.3 billion and $1.3 billion to the oppressive governments in Israel and Egypt. It includes hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to regime change operations in Hong Kong, Tibet, China, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and Russia. Afghan Death...

Everything They Touch Turns To Sh*t

“Everyone has a right to affordable health care!” “Everyone has a right to go to college!” “Everyone has a right to own a home, it’s the American Dream!” We’ve all heard these. Some of us have even believed them, but do you honestly believe the government can give this to you? Do you think it’s their job? I’m sure we are all familiar with the term “reform.” It’s a political phrase like no other in that it tells you that every government plan is a failure. Just about everything they do is “reforming” their previous mistakes that have caused massive debt and further dependence on them. If...
