That Sinking Feeling

James Howard Kunstler wrote the essay below. I republish completely here on safe ground as you will quite likely decide you too like his writing, want to see some of the numerous comments to the essay, and will be interested in the books he has written. I made it easy for you to follow the links to the areas that interest you… including the Amazon James Howard Kunstler author page with all of his books new, used and electronic. I suggest you may buy them more directly from him to cut out the A-monster, but we don’t make much difference to them either way. I found this essay to express so much of what is churning and burning in […]

Mises Institute videos for beginners

Mises was founded to promote and educate about real economics, also known as Austrian Economics. Completely unlike the voodoo sold to the masses in order that the grand theft can be hidden, Austrian Economics is actually easy to understand, helps make sense out of economies, fits with our human behavior experiences and (horror of horrors) exposes the fraudulent banksters and political prostitutes. In a series of videos Mises.org breaks the fundamentals down into comprehensible bite-sized pieces for kids and adults. They are available for free to watch or download for later viewing at the two pages linked below. Economics for Beginners What Has Government Done to Our Money? […]

economics, money, inflation – videos

The economy is going to hit you HARD … SOON. In these video clips, and yesterday’s post image collection: economics, money, inflation, banksters, I offer supporting evidence, proofs, visual examples and historical precedents. The global economic collapse is unavoidable. The historical precedence and replica we are in cannot be rationalized away. However, you can do some things TODAY that will reduce your pain tomorrow. Understand what is going on, and what to do about it now. My toolset and skillset forced me to break the video into two parts. I cannot justify upgrading my video recorder for the little bits I do. Obviously PART 1 on the left should be watched before PART 2 below. I produced these because […]

Farming Insider Warns The Coming Food Shortages Are Going To Be Far Worse Than We’re Being Told

by Tyler Durden Authored by Michael Snyder via TheMostImportantNews.com, The information that I am about to share with you is extremely alarming, but I have always endeavored to never sugarcoat things for my readers. Right now, there are shortages of certain items in grocery stores across the United States, and food supplies have gotten very tight all over the globe. I have repeatedly warned that this is just the beginning, but I didn’t realize how dire things have already gotten until I received an email from a farming insider that I have corresponded with over the years. I asked him if I could publicly share some of the information that he was sharing with me, and he said that […]

multiple flash points are near

Greg Hunter and Paul Craig Roberts put on another great USA Watchdog show that I share below. Both have solid credentials in multiple national and geopolitical arenas that they bring to bear here. Leading off their discussion is the ramping up of Russia VS USofA tensions to a dangerous level. The Russian government called a meeting to explain the danger as those running the sock-puppet administration increase the threat level too far beyond a tolerable level to be ignored. The ex-assistant Treasury Secretary for multiple administrations also shares some very stark warnings about the USofA and world economies as they appear to be irreversibly approaching an irrecoverable abyss. No expert discussion today would be complete without touching on COVID and […]

paper promises perish

139 Billion dollars in circulation June 1959 5,210 Billion in circulation June 2020 In 1959, the USofA pie was sliced into 139 billion pieces with each dollar representing one piece. In 2020, the pie is sliced into 5,210 billion pieces with each dollar representing one piece. THAT is inflation. THAT is why everything seems more expensive. In 40 years, they shrunk the dollar by 37.5 times. Your dollar wedgies are tiny, tiny, tiny. The difference in value between 1/139B and 1/5,210B was stolen by the global central bankers, and used to buy news media, politicians, farms and businesses. Meanwhile we actually worked for our rapidly shrinking slices of the pie. Their dollar will be worth zero very soon. Gold, […]

the barter/exchange economy

The fiat currencies of the world are all on the last pages of their run. This is no accident, but regardless of cause we get to figure out life in the next phase. For our entire lives we used the USofA dollar to denominate our transactions. Groceries, clothing, energy, labor, housing, luxuries, savings, retirement needs, investments … every transaction and resource decision was measured in dollars. That system is about to seize up. Dystopian books and movies have all shown us how the banksters intend the next phase to look. Your electronic currency will be transacted via subcutaneous RFID, retina scans, facial recognition devices or others. In all cases, the controllers turn off the protagonist’s money supply with the […]

inflation report published

The USofA Department of Labor issued a report on 2021 price changes thus far. Most people see the cost of everything rising. “Everything is getting more expensive.” I visualize the dollar and all other fiat currencies in the world going down. FAST. It is like being on an escalator going down. You can see the floors rising relative to your position, but you know they are not. The squeeze is on producers to keep the majority of their customers from feeling the sticker shock. It cannot be helped as their costs are also rising as their dollars lose value just as fast as ours. You cannot drop endless quantities of paper money out of helicopters without devaluing every single one […]

What determines the price of silver and gold?

The New York Commodities Exchange (COMEX) is the world’s primary clearing house for exchanges of paper products that supposedly represent silver and gold. While it is possible to purchase the physical product there, 250 exchanges involving no metal at all take place for every single real metal transaction. These paper imitations are used to RIG — oops, I mean SET the price of silver and gold. The very same frauds who print the near-useless paper currencies of the world use their paper power to crush price discovery and our ability to know what silver and gold are really worth compared to their fiat currencies. This gross depression of the real price is quite handy for them as they trade […]

borrowing VS saving VS stocking up

It is no accident that normal people do not understand economics whether it is the macro-economics of nations and the world, the micro-economics of their own household or anywhere in between. If enough of us did, those living off their arbitrary printing of fiat currencies would hang from the lampposts by the morning after the mass awakening. In the last couple of days I found myself explaining borrowing money that the banksters print out of thin air so they can “earn” regular interest payments from our meager incomes. I realized I should develop a picture that would better explain how this all works on a personal level. I did that with the two charts on the right. Since it […]

Humanity Awakening + Somewhere between 30 and 300 “vaccine” deaths per day

There is an hour of gems in this video. I will mention a few. We are in the age of KNOWLEDGE.  All the secrets will be revealed.  Keep up your vitamin D levels … plus vitamin C. Makes humans darn-near invulnerable. We have been lied to … they are going to be pissed. 19 out of 20 Democrats have taken or plan to take “the vaccine”. Among non-Democrats, 3 out of 4 will absolutely, unequivocally refuse. Vaccine death will murder the Democratic voters, true believers, activist class. We do not have “a flu season”, we have a vitamin D deficiency season. Monetarily we are into a shift of the ages; a crash of the system. The fiat currencies will evolve […]
