*** In the Middle East, a friend of a friend can be an enemy, and an enemy of an enemy can also be an enemy. It is like an Opium Den in which every participant accuses others of breaking the law. *** A Powder Keg The showdown over Qatar triggered tension over two ongoing processes […]
In the wake of news that a CNN producer called the Trump-Russia narrative mostly “bullshit” to boost ratings, classifying journalistic ethics as nothing but “cutesy” relics from journalism school for wide-eyed college kids, I thought the timing was perfect for Volume Two of our visual guide.
The creator of Ethereum, a popular cryptocurrency, was rumored on 4Chan to have died in a car crash two days ago. Despite skepticism, the rumor gained enough steam to be picked up in at least one news outlet (article now deleted), and crash the value of Ethereum from Sunday to Monday (with the lingering aftermath […]
I sent a letter to Senator Tim Kaine, D-VA, regarding the very clear push by globalist influences to abolish cash in the name of “consumer protection,” “reducing crime” and money laundering. It’s an absurd impetus, given that the biggest money criminals (the big banks) are protected by government, and the biggest drug traffickers (the CIA) […]
DNC staffer Seth Rich was gunned down last year on his way home from a local bar. Police said it was most likely a botched robbery. But while derided by the mainstream corporate press as a conspiracy theory, there is concern among people on both sides of the political aisle that Seth Rich was killed for handing off troves of potentially incriminating emails and other material from the DNC to WikiLeaks.
FED Actions This past Wednesday, the Federal Reserve Board raised interest rate by 0.25%, the fourth increase since last year. At the same time, it announced that it will reduce the size of its balance sheet by USD 30 billion per month, increasing eventually to USD 50 billion per month. When the FED increases or […]

Fed Members Speak: This week, we have 4 FOMC members scheduled to give speeches across the country. After the second rate hike of 2017, investors […]
The Background In Terms Of Big History The world is moving very rapidly in this generation. The digitization of data and its derivative phenonema have accelerated dramatically in the last five years. As the internet was being universalized, starting approximately twenty years ago, the digital revolution began to turn everything into data en masse, first […]
What Would Janet Do??? The week ahead is highlighted by the Fed statement and the potential to see another interest rate hike. On the economic front, we have Building Permits, CPI, Retail Sales and Michigan Sentiment. Federal Reserve: On Wednesday (6/14), the Fed will release a statement where everybody will be waiting to see if […]
Another Gamble Bungled British PM Theresa May’s gamble of an early election ended disastrously, with the Conservatives losing its majority in Parliament. Aiming to secure a long PM term going into the Brexit negotiations with the EU, May chose to try to get herself reelected when she and her Party had a 20% lead over […]
What is the Bilderberg “Club”? It is not what you would normally think of as a club. Here is how I would describe it. It is an international group of relatively high-powered technocrats and significant economic and political players assembled to serve the Western capital oligarchs. There is no vested membership, just various mailing and […]
Like Covfefe, why are people so obsessed with autocorrect? That was a text I sent to a group that autocorrected a word when I said I was doing laundry. I still get texts “which winter be done till 9” years later. Another potential quiet week for the markets is upon us, but Trump is always […]
