How To Instantly Tell

Anonymous CIA officials claim that Russia hacked the U.S. election by accessing emails from top Democratic officials and then leaking them to Wikileaks. But the Washington Post notes: Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) voiced doubts about the veracity of the intelligence, according to officials present. *** A senior U.S. official said there were minor disagreements among intelligence officials about the agency’s assessment, in part because some questions remain unanswered. Instant Access to Current Spot Prices & Interactive Charts For example, intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the Kremlin “directing” the identified individuals to pass the … Continue reading

Optimism about the nation’s economic future is at its highest level in years following Donald Trump’s election to the presidency. But continuing international uncertainty, central bank manipulation and lingering questions about the feasibility of some of the president-elect’s more ambitious plans mean caution is key.

Stay Warm

Depending on where you live, a winter power outage can quickly become a life-threatening emergency. Winter storms with heavy snowfalls, high winds, and a coating of ice are a threat to our vulnerable power grid. Making winter even more of a threat recently is the current economic upheaval. In economically depressed places like Detroit, many residents have had their utilities shut off due to an inability to pay their bills. With temperatures in the negatives, people could quite literally freeze to death in their homes.  You don’t have to be a prepper to realize that secondary heating systems, some specialized … Continue reading

Why EU Must End in Tears

The latest consequence of economic mismanagement in Europe was the failed attempt at constitutional reform in Italy this week. The Italian people have had enough of their government’s economic failure and is refusing to give it more power. The EU and the euro project have been an economic disaster for all participants, including Germany, which will eventually be forced to write off the hard-earned savings she has lent to other Eurozone members. We know, with absolute certainty, that the euro will self-destruct and the Eurozone will disintegrate. We know this for one reason above all. The political class and the … Continue reading

The Purpose of the Polar Vortex

From USA Today, we get a teachable moment. The headline reads “Weekend snow sets stage for polar vortex’s icy return” “Snow is forecast to spread across the nation’s northern tier this weekend and as far east as Maine by Monday, setting the stage for another blast of bitterly cold air next week that could send temperatures plunging as far south as Atlanta. As serious winter weather settles in, the anticipation of harsh cold marks the reappearance of the Polar Vortex, like the one that infamously slammed the U.S. in January 2014. The Polar Vortex is a large area of cold … Continue reading

Russian Hackers Behind 1000s of Murders

Sources in the CIA tell LRC that the carnage that has killed thousands of Chicagoans in Obama’s American hometown since 2008 has been caused by Russian gangs working from submarines located underwater in Lake Michigan just east of Midway Airport in Chicago. “Russia’s hackers have used cutting-edge digital technology to enter the city undetected, it’s like amazing,” said a CIA source, one of several agency specialists who spend most of their time placing stories in the leak-friendly media. “The Russian agents have state-of-the-art digital camouflage that makes them look totally like Americans,” she explained. “They are virtually undetected. They can … Continue reading

India’s Fanatically Anti-Cash Regime

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is just another political hack. Like politicians in general, he does not understand economics. He does not understand the law of unanticipated consequences. He does not understand that government is dumb. On November 8, he unilaterally and without warning declared the two highest value paper currency units obsolete: the 500-rupee ($7) and 1,000-rupee notes ($14). They will no longer be money in 50 days, he announced. That will be on December 28. These two denomination bills constituted 86% of the nation’s currency. To turn it back into currency of value, India’s currency holders most go … Continue reading

High-Tech Censorship

One of the tools being tested will enable users to inform Facebook if certain news stories are using “misleading language”. Some users posted images of a Facebook survey asking them the following question: “To what extent do you think that this link’s title withholds key details of the story?”. It is still unclear what kind of actions will be carried out after this additional user data is collected, but it is likely that some sort of a database, containing the list of “misleading” news websites, will be generated. In a not so distant past, content curators from Facebook confirmed that they received direct orders from the company … Continue reading

Neocon Smearathon and Powergrab

While we wait to see if and when the Senate will pass (and president will sign) Bill  “H.R. 6393, Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017″, which was passed by the House at the end of November with an overwhelming majority and which seeks to crack down on websites suspected of conducting Russian propaganda and calling for the US government to “counteractive measures by Russia to exert covert influence … carried out in  coordination with, or at the behest of, political leaders or the security services of the Russian Federation and the role of the Russian Federation has been hidden … Continue reading
