About Those "Overly Optimistic" Trump GDP Forecasts, There's Just One Thing

While armchair and tenured economists took Trump to task last week over his reportedly "overly optimistic" GDP projections, it is worth recalling that in 2009 when Obama took office in the midst of a recession, the former president projected GDP growth of 3.5% to 4.5% for 2010-2014.

"Fake Data": Economists Concerned Trump Administration Will Adopt 'Alternative' Economic Facts

"The worst thing he could do -- and I see this as a real danger -- would be to politicize the agencies that produce government economic data, to put people in place that will skew the numbers in his favor.  If that happens, the data will be useless, and we’ll essentially be flying blind when it comes to the true state of the economy.”

Greenspan on Gold: Three Stages

by Gary North, Lew Rockwell:
“When our friends get elected, they aren’t our friends any more.” — M. Stanton Evans
My deceased friend Stan Evans became deservedly famous for this law of politics.
This law applies to high-level appointments.
Back in the days when I was starting out in my career, Alan Greenspan wrote an article for Ayn Rand’s Objectivist newsletter. It was pro-gold standard. It has been reprinted all over the Web. Back then, only a handful of us knew about it. I reviewed it in 2007 here.

Fight of the Century

by Doug Casey, International Man:
In March 1933, the Enabling Act was passed by the Reichstag, Germany’s parliament. Its purpose was to provide Chancellor Adolf Hitler with the ability to bypass the Reichstag. It allowed him (amongst other measures) emergency powers to legally wage pre-emptive war without any further parliamentary or presidential approval, or even discussion.
In January 2017, H.J. Res 10 was introduced to the US House of Representatives. Its intent was simple and straightforward:
This joint resolution authorizes the President to use the U.S. Armed Forces as necessary in order to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

How A Real War On Terrorism Would Look And Why The US Isn’t Fighting One

by Ulson Gunnar, Activist Post:
Since 2001, when then US President George Bush announced his “War on Terror,” presidents and politicians both in the United States and among America’s allies, have repeated this phrase and have done their utmost to convince the public that indeed, the West was fighting a “War on Terror.”
Yet there is something disturbingly ambiguous about what exactly the “War on Terror” consists of, who it’s being waged against and how it could ever possibly be brought to a successful conclusion.

Ex-CIA Ray McGovern: German Intel Clears Russia on Interference

by Ray McGovern, The News Doctors:
Mainstream U.S. media only wants stories of Russian perfidy, so when German intelligence cleared Moscow of suspected subversion of German democracy, the silence was deafening, says ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern.
After a multi-month, politically charged investigation, German intelligence agencies could find no good evidence of Moscow-directed cyber-attacks or a disinformation campaign aimed at subverting the democratic process in Germany. Undaunted, Chancellor Angela Merkel has commissioned a new investigation.

As Merkel’s Kryptonite of Inflation Suddenly Emerges, the Beleaguered German Chancellor Points to Draghi and the Euro

from Rogue Money:
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has efficiently kept her office over the past decade by primarily ensuring that the German economy has been insulated from the most important economic data point in the minds of the people… that being inflation.
In fact with Germany being the most powerful EU nation when it comes to trade and economic growth, the deflation that has suffused the West since the 2008 financial crisis has actually been a bonus for Merkel’s administration and political party. So much so that even with her controversial policy of allowing millions of Islamic refugees and immigrants to come into Germany to feed off the welfare trough and raise the crime rate, it has only put a minor dent in her chances to win back the highest office in the oncoming elections.

Why The Wall Street Journal’s Failed Fake News Attack on PewDiePie May Be What Finally Brings The MSM Down – Nathan McDonald

by Nathan McDonald, Sprott Money:
What in the world is going on? What is happening? 2017 is already shaping up to be a year when the world is turned upside down, spun around and jettisoned into deep space.
The mainstream media, the “lamestream media”, or call them whatever you like is losing their grip on reality. The reason why this is happening is simply because they are losing their grip on the narrative and they can’t stand it.
For those of us in the gold and silver industry, we are way ahead of the curve. We have been smeared by the financial media for decades. GATA has been targeted as conspiracy theorist, even though just about everything they have said has been proven true over the course of time, as have many other “theories” by prominent names in the industry.

How to Grow Garlic From a Single Clove

by Amy Goodrich, Natural News:
Often described as the stinking rose, garlic’s culinary and medicinal uses date back to ancient times. In fact, the father of Western medicine, the Greek physician Hippocrates, once described it as a cure for a variety of medical conditions. And right he was. Over the years, modern science has backed up many of his ancient health claims.
From reducing cholesterol and lowering blood pressure, to supporting bone health and protecting vital organs from heavy metal toxicity, garlic seems to do it all. It owes its strong medicinal health effects and pungent smell to a sulfur compound called allicin. This powerful phytochemical has been shown to be 100 times more effective than some antibiotics, without harming friendly gut bacteria. (RELATED: Learn more about nutritional medicine at
