Suddenly Liberals Are The Ones Stockpiling Guns, Food And Supplies

Now that the shoe is on the other foot, many liberals all over America have suddenly become extremely interested in prepping.  Fearing that a Trump presidency could rapidly evolve into a “Trumpocalypse”, a significant number of leftists are now stockpiling food, guns and emergency supplies.

‘This Perfect Powder Keg Could Blow Up In Our Faces Any Time’ – Have The Most Shocking New Years Predictions Of All-Time Been Issued For 2017? ‘It Will Spread Very Quickly’ Expert Warns

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:
Back on October 21st and 22nd, Susan Duclos reported that something huge was going on from east coast to west after massive DDos attacks took down some of the biggest websites across the internet. Many huge geographical areas were hit and for several hours, the internet went dark for millions of Americans.
Susan reported then that Americans own hacked phones were being used as bots to actually do the attacking – millions of unsuspecting Americans and people around the world had had their phones turned into weapons to take down the internet for millions more.
While it was reported then that the hacks were somehow tied to Julian Assange and Wikileaks, others believed it was a possible test to bring down the internet completely in America in a systematic purge of alternative news websites such as Infowars, the Drudge Report, and all of the websites hundreds of millions of Americans have grown to know and love. In fact the breaking news yesterday likely confirmed those warnings.

Federal Reserve Initiates End Game As Trump Heads To White House

by Brandon Smith, Alt-Market:
For years, alternative economic analysts have been warning that the “miraculous” rise in U.S. stock markets has been the symptom of wider central bank intervention and that this will result in dire future consequences. We have heard endless lies and rationalizations as to why this could not be so, and why the U.S. “recovery” is real. At the beginning of 2016, the former head of the Dallas branch of the Federal Reserve crushed all the skeptics and vindicated our position in an interview with CNBC where he stated:

"His Thoughts Are So Correct": Trump Releases "Very Nice Letter" He Received From Putin

Hillary Voters Ate Their Feelings On November 9th - Cheesecake Orders Surged 72%

From riots, to uncontrollable crying, to vision quests in the Arizona desert, America's pampered millennials chose a variety of ways to deal with their emotional devastation in the days following Hillary's stunning defeat.  Now, thanks to new evidence from an online meal ordering app, we know that they also ate a ton of cheesecake.

Geopolitics, Globalization, And World Order: Part 1

Big and significant nations like Russia, India, China and Iran are virtually impossible to control militarily, leaving only the financial option available. In this sense, the role of central banks and the de-dollarization process are a core strategic interest for these countries as a way of maintaining their full sovereignty. In going in this direction, they deliver a dramatic blow to US aspirations for a global empire.

In His Latest Letter, Odey Refuses To Throw In The Towel

With his fund down ~50%  YTD, one wonders if Crispin Odey should be thinking about quietly exiting stage left after along and mostly illustrious career. However, as his latest letter suggests, Odey is just getting his second, or maybe third, wind and is confident that he will ultimately win the war against central bankers.

Here Are The Countries Where Millennials Will Have To Work Until They Die

It turns out there is a downside to spending 120% of your annual income every year from the time you graduate college until that day you turn 40 and finally realize that you're getting old and have absolutely no liquid assets and no hopes of ever retiring.

Forget Monte Paschi, Italy May Have A Far Bigger Problem

While the metaphorical 'earthquake' of a systemic banking crisis is coming to a head, it appears Italy may have a far more existential problem on its hands. As The Independent reports, one of the world’s most dangerous supervolcanoes is showing signs of reawakening under the Italian city of Naples.

6 Charts That Make The Case We Are In Long-Term Secular Bear

"As I look out over the coming years, I am convinced that we’ll see the blowing up of the biggest bubbles in history - including those of government debt and government promises. And it’s not just in the US, but all over the world. That will lead to an eventual global crisis of biblical proportions."

Trump Wins Again - Lockheed CEO Gives "Personal Commitment" To Cut F-35 Costs "Aggressively"

It appears the so-called 'Twitter-spanking' approach of president-elect Trump is working. First Carrier, then Ford, and now, following his earlier jab at Lockheed's F-35 costs by asking Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18, Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson has reportedly given Trump her "personal commitment" to "aggressively" drive down costs of the F-35 program. The question is what was the quid-pro-quo in this instance?

"2016 Was Weird. Could 2017 Get Even Weirder?" - 10 Things That Won't Happen In 2017

Today we look at a list of 10 things that won't happen in 2017, courtesy of Lombard Street's chief Euro economist.  As Perkins puts it, "2016 was weird. Could 2017 get even weirder" and in an attempt to answer, he shares the following, "humorous" (high conviction, non-consensus) take on the year ahead.

Dave Collum's 2016 Year In Review - "And Then Things Got Really Weird..."

"Markets don’t have a purpose any more - they just reflect whatever central planners want them to. Why wouldn’t it lead to the biggest collapse? My strategy doesn’t require that I’m right about the likelihood of that scenario. Logic dictates to me that it’s inevitable..."

They're Back: Foreign Central Banks Quietly Unleash A Treasury Buying Spree

After a year and a half of one-way selling, the Treasury holdings in the Fed's custody account have jumped by $60 billion in the past month, suggesting that central banks are once again back and aggressively buying US Treasuries.

Trump's Ominous Warning To The UN: "Things Will Be Different After Jan. 20th"

Top Ex-White House Economist Admits 94% Of All New Jobs Under Obama Were Part-Time

We find that 94% of net job growth in the past decade was in the alternative work category,” said Obama's former top White House economist Alan Krueger. In other words, nearly all of the 10 million jobs created between 2005 and 2015 were not traditional nine-to-five employment, but low-paying temp, on-call, contract workers, independent contractors or freelancers.

Irrational Exuberance in US Stock Market Grasps at 20K for Dow

by David Haggith, The Great Recession Blog:
Since Trump’s election, the US stock market has climbed unstoppably along a remarkably steep path to round off at a teetering height. Is this the irrational exuberance that typically marks the last push before a perilous plunge, or is the market reaching escape velocity from the relentless gravity of the Great Recession?
This burst of enthusiasm in response to Trump’s victory, flew in the face of almost everyone’s predictions. That it lifted the market from seven months of languor certainly makes 20K on the Dow look like the elevation marker of a breathtaking summit.
While breaking 20k, if it happens, may be as meaningless as one more mile on the odometer when all the numbers roll over, it is psychologically potent for many. Breaking through it, could cause fear as eyes turn down and see how far below the earth now is, or the rarified air up here may bring euphoria that lifts the market to even greater levels on a rising current of hot air.

Obama Makes One Last Ditch Effort to Enact United Nations Anti-Gun Treaty

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:
Last week, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah sent the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty tot he US Senate to be ratified. It’s sure to be dead on arrival because of the Senate’s stand against the ATT, but he is just demonstrating his utter contempt for America, the Constitution and the Second Amendment.
Obama has been frustrated at every turn when it comes to his attacks on the Second Amendment, and when he has been beat back, he throws a temper tantrum like a little child.
While he said he would focus this last year on pushing more gun confiscation measures, he has been kept in check.

Russophobia and Sinophobia

by Pepe Escobar, Sputnik News:
It’s by now crystal clear the coup-in-progress against Donald Trump is a made in USA regime change op using standard hybrid war techniques such as manipulation of public opinion by mainstream media.
The coup has been articulated by the usual suspects, from neocons to neoliberalcons, “humanitarian” imperialists included, with a special starring role for their pet agency, the CIA, which during the Bush-Obama continuum further specialized in fake “intelligence”.

How Can Anyone Trust These People?

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:
What I’m about to tell you is a true story.
And by the end of it, I hope it will be pretty clear that we’ve been programmed to put far, far too much trust in the banking system.
We’re told that banks are supposedly “risk free”.
And yet every scrap of publicly available evidence shows that banks take every opportunity to prove that they cannot be trusted with other people’s money.

Drones Set To Replace Security Guards As Patrol Of The Future

by Nicholas West, Activist Post:
Yesterday, I covered an announcement by the U.S. Navy that they are planning to enhance the swarm capabilities of their drone patrol boats to include decision making without human input. In the video demonstration from that article, called Swarm 2 – Mission: Safe Harbor, various researchers and officials make it clear that swarms of autonomous vehicles are the future of seaborne security.
As we know, airborne drones have been employed longer and presumably are further along the developmental path. In fact, as the global drone arms race continues, there is now a burgeoning industry that has to not only create the drones of tomorrow, but to thwart the drones that are bound to be created by adversaries in response. This is a perfect scenario for the military-industrial complex … not so much for those of us who desire a world free of war and surveillance.
