Epsilon Theory has published an in-depth review of Britain’s financial crisis over the past couple of weeks, as its major pension funds were pushed right to the brink of bankruptcy by a liquidity crunch that threatened to take the entire British banking sector down with them. The crisis was averted – for now –… Continue reading Are you, or will you soon be, dependent on pension income? If so, READ THIS.
A very, very good point
Regarding calls for a Constitutional Convention to “rectify” our current political problems, Karl Denninger observes (emphasis in original): [A convention] will do nothing until and unless it includes the willingness of the States to back the requirements of the Constitution with whatever force is necessary for it to be obeyed, Supreme Court, Executive and… Continue reading A very, very good point
Wow. China’s high-tech economy just took a major boot to the knackers…
A recent move by the Biden administration has really put the boot into China’s high-tech industries. In a series of tweets, Jordan Schneider sums up the situation. Here’s part of Threadreader’s condensed version. The US government’s new export controls are wreaking havoc on China’s chip industry. New rules around “US persons” are driving an… Continue reading Wow. China’s high-tech economy just took a major boot to the knackers…
The “smart money” nightmare – when the government can track and control every cent you spend
Here’s a short (15-minute) video clip outlining what the introduction of Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) will mean. The video speaks about the British banking system, but exactly the same thing would happen in the US banking system if CBDC’s are introduced, and cash is outlawed. THIS VIDEO IS REALLY, REALLY IMPORTANT. Please don’t… Continue reading The “smart money” nightmare – when the government can track and control every cent you spend
If it’s not safe, it doesn’t matter how nice a place may be
Jeffrey Carter puts his finger on a universal truth – one that the current administration and its hangers-on don’t seem to recognize. No one is truly safe anywhere in the urban jungle these days given the way violence against people has been randomized. A lot of wealthy people I know in NYC, Chicago, and… Continue reading If it’s not safe, it doesn’t matter how nice a place may be
An excellent perspective on the breakdown of our society

Wright has penned a magnificent essay, one of the best I’ve ever read about our modern world and the society in which we live.

Is World War 3 an inevitable outcome of the current financial system?
Capitalist Eric thinks so. It comes down to a few simple points, which I’ve explained several times over, but will repeat here. The Western elitist banksters have maintained utter control of their respective financial currencies; this debt-slavery system is the basis of their power. It has been, for all intents and purposes, their private… Continue reading Is World War 3 an inevitable outcome of the current financial system?
An organized terrorist threat from illegal aliens?
Trevor Loudon thinks that may not be far-fetched. After leading open opposition to then-Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez in 2002, former Venezuelan lieutenant in the National Guard Jose Antonio Colina Pulido fled to the U.S. in 2003 to seek political asylum. He has been living in exile in the U.S. ever since. He has provided… Continue reading An organized terrorist threat from illegal aliens?
Remote work is a two-edged sword
The New York Post warns: “Remote work could cost Americans their jobs within decade, experts say“. Remote work may be a blessing for Americans who enjoy not having to commute to the office, but experts are warning that workers should be careful what they wish for because companies could easily hire someone overseas to… Continue reading Remote work is a two-edged sword
This sounds suspiciously close to deliberate medical murder
I’m profoundly conflicted, as a human being and as a Christian, by this news from the medical front. With little attention or debate, transplant surgeons across the country are experimenting with a kind of partial resurrection: They’re allowing terminal patients to die, then restarting their hearts while clamping off blood flow to their brains.… Continue reading This sounds suspiciously close to deliberate medical murder
