What’s Looking Good

Dr. Marc Faber, the editor and publisher of “The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report” talks about real-world investing with CNBC’s Brian Sullivan. Faber thinks the US market is not as strong as the indices show. Although he would have voted for Trump, he says that Trump is a Keynesian, an interventionist, and will have to print money going forward. Going into 2017, Faber likes: Emerging markets ( i.e., Russia up 34%) Singapore stocks Gold and platinum Japan Physical Gold & Silver in your IRA. Get the Facts. For the regular investor, he thinks that treasury bonds (TLT) will rebound. He … Continue reading

The Hole That Changed the World

The 1901 “Lucas Gusher” in Texas reveals the Spindletop oilfield, which will produce more oil in one day than the rest of the world’s oilfields combined. Spindletop-Gladys City Boomtown Museum in Beaumont, Texas, tells the story of a 1901 oil discovery that created the modern petroleum industry – and made America a world power. On January 1, 1901, if you asked residents of Beaumont, Texas, what news interested them, they would have said the Galveston Hurricane of September 8 (the deadliest hurricane in U.S. history), or the dawning of a new century. However, as a southeastern Texas petroleum museum explains, if … Continue reading

The Most Hated Asset on the Planet

Last year at this time markets were grappling with the Fed’s first rate hike in almost a decade. Although many optimists were confident the economy was plenty strong enough to handle the increase in rates, within days it was obvious they were sorely mistaken. Fast forward to today. With the election of Trump, there is even more optimism filling the air. Don’t get me wrong, I understand all the reasons to be bullish. But doesn’t the fact that everyone else understands all those reasons too not worry you just a little bit? Why are the most advertised Gold and Silver … Continue reading

Burning the Gov’t Flag

“Now from the sixth-hour, darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour. About the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, ‘ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI?’ that is, ‘MY GOD, MY GOD, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?’ … And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up His spirit. And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split. The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of … Continue reading

Fed Fakery

In her rate hike announcement last week, Janet Yellen said the Fed was so confident in the health of the US economy that it was raising the Federal Funds rate by a paltry quarter point. Investors are on board, with a wave of irrational exuberance sending the Dow closer to its 20,000-point milestone. However, the Fed’s decision suggests the need for a strict comparison with its statements last December: a time when a similar expression of economic confidence would prove to substantially miss the mark for rate hike expectations and GDP growth. In a special episode of the Schiff Report, … Continue reading

They’re Determined and Bitter Anti-Christianites

A translator at German refugee camps has revealed Muslim migrants are showing ‘pure hatred’ toward Christians and want the country to be Islamised. The Arabic speaker worked in a number of asylum centers across the country and went undercover to discover migrants were preaching ‘pure hatred’ about non-Muslims and women were planning to have more children to ‘destroy Christians’. She said the hostility is also visible at asylum homes, where Muslim children refuse to play with Christians. The Eritrean woman, 39, worked in several refugee centers across Germany and found fellow translators were part of the problem. Talking to Catholic … Continue reading

Bill Kristol’s Way Has Been the US Way

It is not only Bill Kristol who could say just after NATO’s attack on Libya: “President Obama is taking us to war in another Muslim country. Good for him.” Kristol’s promotion of wars of liberation has been U.S. policy for the past 25 years. Kristol’s philosophy has informed and heavily influenced U.S. foreign policy. This philosophy must be clearly spelled out and rejected if the disastrous U.S. interventions are to be brought to a halt. Bill Kristol’s way has been the U.S. way for 25 years, and it’s been the wrong way. By its wars, invasions and meddling, the U.S. … Continue reading

Will Trump Lower the Cost of Speaking the Truth?

I am fortunate that I grew up during a time when, despite the lies and disinformation, both private greed and government were checked by a sometimes honest media and an alert population. The power of the people’s votes had not yet been eclipsed by the power of campaign contributions. Truth mattered, and those who lost their integrity were shamed. Instant Access to Current Spot Prices & Interactive Charts Today’s world is different. We have no media, only a Ministry of Propaganda, except for parts of the Internet, and the Internet itself is in the hands of a few, such as … Continue reading

Things You Should Never Do

A good mechanic often has the scars to prove it. My friend Tim – a professional mechanic with years of experience – just acquired a new one the other day. While removing a bolt from a hard-to-get-at place, a jagged edge caught flesh and took a good sized chunk out of his ring finger (ironic, given he is in the final stages of a divorce).      This kind of thing happens if you wrench long enough. Or even soon enough. Which it probably will, if you don’t avoid some of these common mistakes: * Using a tire jack to … Continue reading

Joyeux Noël

One of the ways that being a regular reader of Lew Rockwell’s site enriches me is learning crucial things I’d never known before. Oftentimes there are alternative perspectives on politics and economics and current events—essentially focused on the machinations of government—but sometimes there are posts and articles that introduced me to moments in history captured in works of art that I’d never known existed. While I did know generally about the Christmas Truce of 1914, through Lew’s site I discovered Stanley Weintraub’s book Silent Night: The Story of the World War I Christmas Truce, in an essay written by William Norman Grigg … Continue reading

Heads To Roll

German online media is reporting on the growing confrontation between the CIA and President-elect Donald Trump. Citing the Washington Post, German Economic News related that the rank and file of the CIA is not sure if they will be able to work under President Trump: The Washington Post, usually kept well informed by intelligence circles, is reporting great apprehension in the CIA over the president-elect. The Post cites an anonymous CIA man as saying, “I don’t know what the endgame is. After the inauguration we will be in uncharted waters.” These reports come as the CIA, or elements of it … Continue reading

Make America Healthy Again

President-elect Trump Needs Independent Advisory Board To Reform Health Care HOUSTON, Texas (Dec. 15, 2016) – Americans spend over $1.5 trillion every year on health care. With insurance premiums and deductibles skyrocketing, the U.S. health care system remains among the worst in the world. In 2014, the Bloomberg index ranked America’s health care system #50 out of 55 countries. According to the Mayo Clinic and Olmsted Medical Center, nearly 70 percent of Americans take at least one prescription drug daily and more than half take two. This trend isn’t without grave consequences. In 2014, prescription drugs were responsible for nearly … Continue reading

Vlad the Bad

A senior CIA source tells me ‘with a high level of certainty that Russia’s Vladimir Putin was responsible for Pearl Harbor, the Korean War, Vietnam, and Iraq. This miscreant was also behind 9/11 and ring around the collar. Not since Dr. Fu Manchu have we seen such a wicked genius bent on wrecking the West. Vlad the Bad is so nefarious that he’s managed to rig America’s voting machines and probably the Super Bowl. Watching the mounting Red Hysteria in the US is bizarre and amusing. But most amusing is the media furor claiming that the Kremlin has ‘meddled’ in … Continue reading

Conservative Nanny-Staters

U.S. Representative Frank Pallone (D-NJ), the ranking Democrat in the House Energy and Commerce Committee, recently told ESPN that current federal gambling laws are “obsolete” and “in desperate need of updating,” including those that deal with sports betting. Said Pallone: The laws need a wholesale review to see how they can actually work together and create a fairer playing field for all types of gambling, both online and offline, including sports betting and daily fantasy sports. At the same time, we must ensure the laws are actually creating an environment of integrity and accountability, and include strong consumer protections. I … Continue reading
