Financialism, Not Capitalism

In short, we’ve wasted just about ten years calling a depression a recovery, and all because money is so unstable that it has become, for the mainstream as well as mainstream authorities, unrecognizable. If you don’t know what money is, you aren’t going to know when money is a problem.

How Is Martin Sheen Any Different Than Vladimir Putin?

So if Russia messes with the political process to advance Donald Trump (as the official narrative goes), it’s evil. Yet when Martin Sheen blatantly tries to manipulate the election against Donald Trump with a pathetic piece of propaganda, the New York Times is noticeably silent.

The Deep State Blues

This dishonest meme was also designed by The Deep State to distract the public from the substance of the emails disclosed by WikiLeaks - namely, the scamming and trickery of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the influence-peddling of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, which had her flirting with indictment last summer, and only reinforced her already-established public image as an unscrupulous person.

Kissinger: Trump Could Go Down in History as a ‘Very Considerable President’

by Pam Key, Breitbart:
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Presidents Richard Nixon and President Gerald Ford’s former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said President-elect Donald Trump, “has the possibility of going down in history as a very considerable president.”
Kissinger said, “Donald Trump is a phenomenon that foreign countries haven’t seen. So it shocking experience to them that he came into office. At the same time extraordinary opportunity. And I believe he has the possibility of going down in history as a very considerable president because every country now has two things to consider. One, their perception that the previous president or the outgoing president basically withdrew America from international politics so they had to make their own assessment of the necessities.”

‘Be Ready For The Madness’ – Inauguration Day Chaos Being Orchestrated Now

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:
Desperate liberal snowflakes that cannot handle the fact that their presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, did not win the presidency, have done everything in their limited power to prevent President-Elect Donald Trump from taking his place as the 45th President of the United States. Now Soros-linked groups are planning complete Inauguration Day chaos for Washington DC on January 20, 2017.
They tried to steal the election by petitioning for recounts, which ended in utter failure as the one state they won their bid for recounts in, ended up widening Trump’s lead.

James Clapper Refuses to Brief Congress on the Proof That Russia Hacked the DNC

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:
I am sorry, but he has not basis to refuse to show his evidence. He is clearly trying to instigate a revolution in the Electoral College. He should be held in CONTEMPT of Congress and he is clearly playing politics now with the intelligence community. This is just showing how far we have gone already from our model’s forecast that 2015.75 was the PEAK IN GOVERNMENT. This is becoming blatantly obvious. Congress should hold Clapper in prison on Contempt until he agrees to brief the nation showing the EVIDENCE that the DNC was hacked by Russia. Even if it was, the emails released have exposed unbelievable corruption and collusion between the Democrats and the media, who obviously will not really push this issue for their own conflict of interest issues.

The Final Currency War, Part lll-China’s Revenge!

Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

“When gold goes above $1,430, we whack it.”  This, one of the hundreds of blatantly collusive “chat” messages between UBS and Deutschebank gold traders between 2004 and 2013, per this article from the PM communities’ newest champion, Allan Flynn of the “Comex we have a problem” blog.  Who, as was the case a week ago, when he publishedequally damning communications regarding the relentless manipulation of silver during that period, has uncovered all the evidence anyone could ever need to prove Wall Street has been involved in suppressing prices for more than a decade.

In October 2017, Will the CIA Regret Its Fight with Trump?

by Jacob G. Hornberger, via Lew Rockwell:
The fight between President-Elect Trump and the CIA over Russia’s alleged interference with the U.S. presidential election could have a major impact on what is set to happen in October 2017. That is the month when thousands of the CIA’s super-secret records relating to the assassination of President Kennedy are set to be finally released to the public, after more than a half-century of secrecy.
When the Warren Commission published its report on the assassination in 1964, it ordered that many of the records relating to the assassination be kept secret for 75 years. Of course, that secrecy ruling never made any sense given the Commission’s official finding — that JFK had been assassinated by a lone nut. If it were really just a lone-nut assassination, why not order a release of everything relating to the case, especially since the supposed lone nut had himself been assassinated? And why 75 years of secrecy?

WATCH: Honest News Anchor Destroys CIA Russia Hack Claims in Under 5 Minutes

by Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project:
When unnamed officials with the CIA recently claimed Russia hacked the U.S. presidential election, but failed to provide any evidence, suspicions immediately circulated that the allegation constituted a fabrication — particularly as left-leaning corporate media unquestioningly parroted the story.
This, after the Washington Post first tried — and miserably failed — to convince the U.S. populace professional Russian propagandists were running nearly every alternative and independent media outlet, and had plotted to smear Hillary Clinton to ensure Donald Trump’s victory.

Not So Happy New Year: The Conflicts That Could Lead to WWIII in 2017

from Sputnik News:
President-elect Trump will have a lot on his plate in dealing with foreign policy hotspots when he steps into the Oval Office. Last week, the Council on Foreign Relations listed a possible NATO-Russia war, a Korean peninsula standoff and terrorism as the main ‘high impact’ threats to the US. But there are other dangers. Sputnik takes a closer look.
Last week, the CFR, an influential US think tank which has many senior US politicians, academics and senior media figures as members, released its annual survey of the “top international concerns” for US national security for 2017.

Rising Rates in Imploding Bond Markets

by Larry Edelson, Deviant Investor:
“If you give it more than 5 seconds of brain time, it’s too much. Of course, Yellen was going to raise the Fed funds rate today. Free market forces have already done it for her over the past four or so weeks.
She could no longer not raise rates any more than I could stop ISIS all by myself, dead in its tracks on a moment’s notice.
Or change today’s weather. Or any market for that matter. All of this stuff is preordained in advance by the powers-that-be, which are essentially:
