We’re in the Eye of a Global Financial Hurricane

Charles Hugh Smith

The only “growth” we’re experiencing are the financial cancers of systemic risk and financialization’s soaring wealth/income inequality.

The Keynesian gods have failed, and as a result we’re in the eye of a global financial hurricane.

The Keynesian god of growth has failed.

The Keynesian god of borrowing from the future to fund today’s consumption has failed.

The Keynesian god of monetary stimulus / financialization has failed.

Every major central bank and state worships these Keynesian idols:

1. Growth. (Never mind the cost or what kind of growth–all growth is good, even the financial equivalent of aggressive cancer).

2. Borrowing from the future to fund today’s keg party, worthless college diploma, particle board bookcase, stock buy-back, etc. (oops, I mean “investment”)–a.k.a. deficit spending which is a polite way of saying this unsavory truth: stealing from our children and grandchildren to fund our lifestyles today.

3. Monetary stimulus…

“ADHD Is the New Education”

Ignorance is strength

An Outsider's Sojourn II

Image: quickmeme.com

As a former teacher, I could not agree more with this author’s estimations of and conclusions about the American public ‘education’ system.

I was lucky. I taught music in an arts and academic, career-oriented high-school, so I had more control of how I taught my students than the poor academic teachers. Needless to say, the emphasis, even twenty-five years ago, was not on turning out students who could read and comprehend, write and speak (communicate), compute, reason/think, problem solve, and be capable of accessing their imaginations and be creative. No, the emphasis was on, as it is even more so today, what this author has written about here:

“How the Public School System Gives America Endless War”

An Outsider's Sojourn II

The following article paints an accurate picture of American public-schools.

There are alternatives to this corrupted “system of education”. American parents do have a choice, at least at the moment. It is the parents’ responsibility to protect and educate their children, not the state’s:

HOW THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM GIVES AMERICA ENDLESS WAR

In 2013, American and British public opinion said “hell no” to plans to bomb (and surely regime change) Syria, taking the momentum out of the march to war. This marked a peak in post-Iraq war-weariness. But then in August 2014, many hearts were touched by the plight of a group of Yazidis trapped on a mountain and besieged by ISIS. So public opinion sanctioned a humanitarian military rescue. During the operation, it was revealed that the crisis was blown way out of proportion, as excuses for war so often are.

Predictably, ISIS retaliated. The group…

“Scientific Fraud Published in Reputable Medical Journals has Soared More than 1700 Percent Since 2004, Says Report”

Like almost everything else in this elite-controlled, retrograde-inverted world, science has been raped and pillaged by the structural-elite:

Scientific Fraud Published in Reputable Medical Journals has Soared More than 1700 Percent Since 2004, Says Report

Friday, May 06, 2016 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The alleged gold standard of the double-blind, peer-reviewed scientific study is not looking so gold these days, especially after a recent report in The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) unearthed some of the scandalous secrets hiding in plain sight in modern science. Such secrets, say investigators, include rampant fraud being peddled as sound science in supposedly reputable, peer-reviewed medical journals.

According to data compiled from Thomson Reuters Web of Science, an index of more than 11,000 peer-reviewed journals from around the world, the number of scientific studies retracted for error or fraud from scientific journals worldwide has skyrocketed more than 15-fold since…

The Greatest Act of Treason — A Notice to Public Servants

OK then roll out the guillotines!

Maine Republic Email Alert

On the night of December 23, 1913 the United States Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act and thereby committed the greatest act of TREASON in history. It surrendered this nation’s sovereignty and sold the American people into slavery to a cabal of arch-charlatan international bankers who proceeded to plunder, bankrupt, and conquer this nation with a money swindle.

The “money” the banks issue is merely bookkeeping entries. It cost them nothing and is not backed by their wealth, efforts, property, or risk. It is not redeemable except in more debt paper. The Federal Reserve Act forced us to pay compound interest on thin air in exchange for borrower’s promissory notes. We now use worthless “promissory notes” backed by our own credit that we cannot own and are made subject to compelled performance for the “privilege”.

From 1913 until 1933, the United States paid the “interest” with more and more gold…

Guillotine the Two-headed Corporate Duopoly Now!

Hillary May Win in November, but the Duopoly Electoral System is Doomed

by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

“The very magnitude of Trump’s loss will further destabilize the duopoly system.”

All signs indicate that Bernie Sanders will follow his original flight plan to Philadelphia, with every intention of disgorging his leftish passengers at the Democratic Party terminal, in July, where they will be expected to board the shuttle busses to Hotel Hillary. How they will behave when they get there, and how many will check in for the duration, is still in question. Donald Trump’s hordes of apprentices are scheduled to arrive at the All-Caucasian Convention Center in Cleveland a week earlier, in a mood to rumble with Washington and Wall Street “elites” that may not even show up for their ass-whipping.

The crisis in the U.S. duopoly electoral system is profound, and will intensify, rather than diminish, after November…
