Chaos Out of Order

James Corbett, January 21 2017

 If this ended up being the year of the first North Korean nuclear attack or the rise of a neo-Communist insurgency in the West or an all-out cyberwar between major powers or a fake alien invasion, who would even be surprised at this point? We've lost our sense of normal. There is only chaos.

Pentagon Caught Fudging Airstrike Data

James Corbett, February 11 2017

we must never lose sight of the fact that this argument is not about accounting procedures or statistics or dollars and cents. It is about the blood of innocent men, women and children who are being slaughtered in the name of a false narrative based on lies and perpetuated by liars.

Trump Continues War For Opium in Afghanistan

James Corbett, August 26 2017

...the Afghan war is not about protecting America's interests or ridding the world of terrorists, and the war on drugs is not about helping to end the opioid crisis.

North Korea

Bob Rinear, September 20 2017

The question is, what is the answer? Is the US ever going to be comfy with a nuclear North? Nope. Yet they too know that if we go in, it’s going to be uglier than most imagine.

US Negotiating Peace With the Taliban

James Corbett, August 4 2018

...this negotiation with the Taliban is born of desperation, not principle, and the US Empire has painted itself into a corner in Afghanistan that no amount of dollar bills is going to get them out of.

Neocons Planning Another Syrian False Flag Attack

James Corbett, September 15 2018

The point is, there is no logic here. There doesn't have to be. We're in TV-land, and the talking heads have primed the pump by telling the hypnotized masses that a chemical weapons attack is coming.

So, does all of this piss you off? You know, all of this drivel being peddled by "conspiracy researchers" in the name of "spreading the truth"? Does it make you angry?

UN Declares Peace on Earth!

James Corbett, July 8 2020

But of course the UN Security Council is not interested in ending these threats to humanity. It is not interested in a peace which means that humanity is free from the clutches of the governments that seek to track, trace, control and sanction their every movement.

Deflation Ahead?

Bob Rinear, April 13 2022

Hey all, we're mid week in a Holiday shortened market week. On Friday, the US markets are closed for Good Friday, and I'm happy about that. If we can close for significant people, we can certainly close for God and son.

Now I'm sure you looked at the headline of the article and figure that I lost my last marble. Deflation? Isn't that where prices of things come down? Indeed it is. And like the housing bubble of 2005 - 2007, this time will probably be no different. ( pay attention to that word probably, I'll come back to it later in this piece)

The biggest cure for high prices, is indeed high prices. When prices of things get too far out of whack, markets have an interesting way of putting them back in whack.

Naturally there's multiple mechanisms at work, but the bottom line is that there always comes a point, where "things" are just too expensive to be purchased. Then, things sit on shelves and ultimately have to be "marked down." This is going to happen again. But, and this is the big elephant... we probably have to endure something akin to a hyper inflation, before we get the big bust and everything falls down.

Right now, we've still got supply chain issues, manufacturing issues, etc. to deal with. Take China and their lockdown of tens of millions of people. NONE of those people are producing products that will end up on Wal-Mart's shelf. So, the products that are there or are in transit, will demand higher prices. No doubt.

But trees don't grow to the moon, and everything eventually reverts to the mean. Always and forever. The twist this time, is that the reasons for the hyper inflation, aren't rooted in the public doing incredibly stupid things. Think back to the "Tulip mania" of the 1600's. I don't know what kind of mushrooms they were snorting during that period, but people were giving up family farms for one tulip bulb. Peak insanity.

The Pivot?

Bob Rinear, May 28 2022

I’m writing this ahead of the three day Memorial Day Holiday, so I’ll try and keep it short. Like many of you, we too have some delicious plans for the weekend, and writing a long drawn-out article wasn’t high in the ranking. Ha. But I do want to talk briefly about the market and what I see happening.

For over two weeks, I’d been looking for a bear market bounce to occur. Maybe three actually. But each one ended up just being a one-day wonder, where on very low volume they’d send the DOW up 4, 5, 600 points, only to see it roll over and flop the next day. It was frustrating, not to mention the intra day volatility that often saw round trip swings of 900+ points. Great for daytrading, but not so hot for swing trades, or short term holds.

Well, starting this past Monday, the market (especially the DOW) decided it was finally time and we’ve seen them put in a powerful reversal. It was pretty overdue, as the market had fallen for 5 weeks in a row. But we finally got it and because people have short memories, there’s a ton of chatter that the bottom is in, and now we’re starting the first legs of a new bull market.

That could be possible. Anything is possible. But is it probable? That’s up for debate. So really quick, let’s ask a few questions and see where the answers lead us.
