Fed Up Yet?
Post Date: 2023-05-21 01:12:19 by Charles_Byrd
You would think the Fed wanted housing to become as overpriced as possible, having supported the market with $2.575 trillion in purchases of mortgaged back securities on its balance sheet to keep those securities flowing through with very low yields. That translated downward, of course, to very low mortgage rates, which the Fed sustained throughout the post- Covid years when housing prices were skyrocketing at their fastest rate to toward their highest prices ever, making housing unaffordable for just about everyone. You would think they wanted to create and pop a housing bubble, having kept that acceleration up all the way to the second they pulled the plug on the market with interest ...

Disastrous Proxy Wars by Great Powers Create Military, Monetary, Financial and Economic Chaos in the World
Post Date: 2023-05-21 01:07:40 by Charles_Byrd
Sometimes politicians like to sprinkle their speeches and statements with words like "diplomacy" and "peace". This does not insure, in so doing, that they really mean what they say. In fact, such grandiloquent talk could be a cover-up for their real intentions, which may be the very opposite to diplomatic solutions and peaceful coexistence to solving world problems. In the realm of politics, actions count more than words. A good point in this case could be what U.S. President Joe Biden meant when he said, during a talk at the State Department on February 4, 2021: "diplomacy is back at the center of our Foreign Policy."

Why China Can’t Pull the World Out of a New Great Depression
Post Date: 2023-05-21 01:05:29 by Charles_Byrd
Over the past two decades since China was admitted into the WTO, its national industrial base has made unprecedented strides to emerge as the worlds leading economic producer in many major areas. The academic debates over whether Chinas GDP is larger than that of the USA are misplaced. GDP is largely worthless as a measure of a real economy. When measured in real physical economic production, China has left the USA and everyone else in the dust. Therefore, the future course of industrial production in China is vital to the future of the world economy. Globalization of the world economy made it so. Steel production is still the single best indicator of a growing real economy. In ...

There are roughly 445,000 National Guardsmen whose designation is also known as members of the US militia under the dual control of the states and feds.

The actual number of agents within the Federal Agencies is unknown because its a secret. Typical weapons carried by agents include a handgun, rifle, shotgun, pepper spry, baton and Taser.

Theft Is Now Costing Retailers in the United States About 100 Billion Dollars a Year
Post Date: 2023-05-21 01:00:21 by Charles_Byrd
If we dont fix this, will the retail industry be able to survive? There has always been shoplifting, but in the old days it was at a level that made it only a minor nuisance to the big box retailers. Unfortunately, now everything has changed. Highly organized gangs have developed extremely sophisticated plans for how to rapidly loot our major retailers, and the best ones can be in and out in just minutes. Those goods are then resold online or in the streets, and the amounts that we are talking about are absolutely staggering. In fact, as you will see below, theft is now costing retailers in this country about 100 billion dollars a year. This week, Target made headlines all over the ...

Although this may seem to be an article focusing on Chicago, please realize Chicago is only being used as an example of the moral decay and corruption in virtually every major city in the United States. It serves as a stark warning to relocate if you are in one of these areas. As noted by ReallyGraceful in the video above, Chicago, Illinois, ought to be a haven of the United States.

US Empire of Debt Headed for Collapse

Prof. Michael Hudsons new book, The Collapse of Antiquity: Greece and Rome as Civilizations Oligarchic Turning Point is a seminal event in this Year of Living Dangerously when, to paraphrase Gramsci, the old geopolitical and geoeconomic order is dying and the new one is being born at breakneck speed. Prof. Hudsons main thesis is absolutely devastating: he sets out to prove that economic/financial practices in Ancient Greece and Rome the pillars of Western Civilization set the stage for what is happening today right in front of our eyes: an empire reduced to a rentier economy, collapsing from within.

Play it Again Uncle Sam… Debunked Syrian Chemical Weapons Card in Ukraine

Western media are now accusing Russian forces of preparing to use chemical weapons (CW) of mass destruction in Ukraine, thereby making the case for greater NATO military intervention. The CW card is a complete dud. That Western media are playing it shows they are also complete duds, and that their role is as sinister as mass drug-dealing. Click for Full Text!

Counter-Disinformation: The New Snake Oil
Post Date: 2023-05-21 00:51:12 by Charles_Byrd
The San Diego Convention Center was packed with the defense industry elite. Boeing, Northrup Grumman, Booz Allen Hamilton, and a myriad of other arms industry salesmen, hungry to peddle their wares. WEST Conference 2023 is billed as the premier naval conference and exposition on the West Coast. A collective of military leaders and titans of the defense industry, intermingled in incestuous harmony. It was a world with which I was well acquainted. After all, I had spent the past fifteen years in the Navy as a Special Warfare Boat Operator, using tools and weapons built by these very defense companies. My call to service came unexpectedly at the tail end of my high school senior ...

Its graduation season, and around my neighborhood, nestled as it is between two high schools, that means plenty of parties and festivities. Suddenly, all the kids whove been running the stop sign in front of my house and tossing empty Jim Beam bottles into nearby woods will assume the aspect of serious scholarsfor an hour or so, at least. In truth, its also a season of reflectionbut not just the kind extolled in graduation speeches.

‘Radioactive cloud’ threatening western Europe – Russian security chief

The destruction of depleted uranium shells in Ukraine has produced a radioactive cloud which has been blown toward Western Europe, the secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolay Patrushev, has claimed. The UK has supplied this type of munition to Ukraine to be fired from British-made Challenger tanks. The senior official revealed the purported threat during a government meeting on Friday, in which he accused the US of manipulating its allies to provide help to other nations that results in harm being done to the recipients.

Some audience members came up to me after a speech I gave in downtown Tokyo in late April. They were hopping mad at Rahm Emanuel, the man whom Washington sent a little over a year ago to do its business in Japan. And what does that business entail? If Emanuels April tweets are any indication, it entails interfering in internal Japanese political matters. Over a series of tweets in late April, Ambassador Emanuel shared photos of himself and the American Embassy staff heading outin full rainbow regalia, the new red, white, and blueto join the Tokyo Rainbow Pride Parade. The usual celebration of civilizational collapse? All in a days work for our man in Tokyo. Click ...
Is Unlocking Closed and Indifferent Minds Possible?
Post Date: 2023-05-21 00:32:20 by Charles_Byrd
As should be very apparent, this is a contentious subject, a double edged sword of sorts, and one that requires open and honest explanation. It should be obvious, but it is not, that no one can forcibly open anothers closed mind, or tame and stifle his indifference. No matter the power wielded, no matter the desired intent, no matter a gallant effort, wasted or not; each person is a unique individual, regardless of his collective desires, or his cowardice in the face of adversity and human suffering. Each of us has to come to his own conclusions, right or wrong, and while it is noble to attempt to educate and bring forth some truth and reason to those lacking the initiative to ...
Why Grandma Yellen Must Be Forced To Prioritize Spending
Post Date: 2023-05-21 00:30:50 by Charles_Byrd
Lets first reprise the great 2011 debt ceiling showdown. On July 28, just a few days prior to when the Treasurys borrowing authority would have been exhausted, the yield on the benchmark 10-year UST note stood at 2.98%. And despite months of heated warnings to the freshly elected GOP House majority about its duty to promptly pass a clean debt ceiling increase that figure was actually down considerably from the 3.36% yield of early January 2011. Thats right. As shown below, the whole seven month ordeal on Capitol Hill about the expiring borrowing authority resulted in, well, an irregular but marked decline of the benchmark bond yield.

Don't Blame Elon Musk for Turkey's Authoritarian Twitter Censorship
Post Date: 2023-05-19 01:55:13 by Charles_Byrd
Twitter CEO Elon Musk is facing a barrage of media criticism for acquiescing to demands from the Turkish government to censor content on the site. The acts of censorship took place last week, just days before the country's presidential election; unsurprisingly, the restricted accounts had expressed criticism of autocratic Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Given that Musk has promised to make Twitter a platform for free speech indeed, his stated rationale for buying the site was to make it more protective of political expressionhis kowtowing to Erdogan has struck many commentators as hypocritical.

Fighting the Military-Industrial Complex
Post Date: 2023-05-19 01:52:03 by Charles_Byrd
The military-industrial-congressional complex (MICC) has a huge advantage over its critics. Its proponents are united by greed and power. They know exactly what they want. Like Johnny Rocco in Key Largo, they want MORE. More money. More authority. And obviously more weapons and more war. Whereas critics of the MICC tend to approach the beast from different angles with different emphases. Tactical differences lead to fissures. Fissures prevent coalitions from forming. Unity is lacking, and not for want of trying. And so the MICC rumbles on, unchallenged by any societal force that is remotely its size. Click for Full Text!
