Buy Junk?

Bob Rinear, May 30 2018

I’m not against junk, it has its place. If you’re one that collects change in a jar or coffee can and then cashes them in ever 6 or 8 months, do yourself a favor and take 20 minutes and see if you’ve got any Pre 1970 and especially pre 1965 coins. If you do, you just hit a little jackpot.

Whoa! Solar

Bob Rinear, May 16 2018

I think that solar has been suppressed, because energy is power. THEY don’t want you to have any power, they want it for themselves. When someone has the power to flip a switch and shut off your electricity, or your water, you’re not very independent are you?

Iran Battles Uncle Sam for the Heart of the EU

James Corbett, May 12 2018

And so it boils down to this: The EU and its leading nations have some soul searching to do. Are they going to roll over and do what they're told, like Uncle Sam's dependable lapdog, or are they going to defy their erstwhile master and refuse to comply with a new round of Iranian sanctions?

James Corbett, May 5 2018

The Japanese government is too busy buying US missile defense systems and building their own cruise missiles to worry about whether or not they get their way on the constitutional debate.

Metals?

Bob Rinear, May 2 2018

Rates are rising. We just hit 3% on the ten years. If rates bust through that and get out of hand, servicing the debt loads at the corporate level is going to get ugly. There’s more than a good reason to think that the stock market could truly roll over.

North Korean Leader’s Cross-Border Walk for Peace

Stephen Lendman, April 28 2018

Given Washington’s permanent war policy, its long history of breaching agreements reached, its hostility toward all sovereign independent countries, it takes a giant leap of faith to believe it’ll turn a page on North Korea for peace on the peninsula.

700 Points

Bob Rinear, April 25 2018

We had a market that had run up for 9 years. We had valuations at nosebleed levels. We had people that didn’t sell in 2017 so they wouldn’t have to pay taxes on it in 2018. Some decided it was time to book profits. We had a lot of reasons for a correction to hit. And, hit it did.

The Facebook Privacy Revelations Aren’t That Shocking

James Corbett, April 14 2018

So we'll also have to point out Google's own repeated violations and abuses of users’ privacy, and how, despite all the creepiness emanating from Facebook these days, Google still manages to find ways of being way creepier in its privacy invasions.

The Chinese Oil Futures Market Has Opened. Here's What It Means.

James Corbett, March 31 2018

Do you think there might be some similar shenanigans going on with this petrodollar "alternative?" If so, then might I just say you are an extremely jaded and skeptical person. You are also correct, so give yourself a cookie.

Meet Xi Jinping, President For Life

From Poisoned Spies to WWIII

James Corbett, March 17 2018

if there is a bright side, is that this incident probably won't lead to WWIII. Directly. Yet. But it is one more step along the path to outright conflict. And however much some might take solace in the fact that this is all a stage show between two sides that are being controlled by the same deep state forces...

Too Much?

Bob Rinear, March 14 2018

I don’t believe Trump wants war with anyone. I really don’t. But he stepped into a position that’s been created and maintained by war hawks for years on end. Afghanistan, Iraq, Vietnam, Syria, Lybia, you name it, and the Military/industrials love it.

America, China, and the Battle for the “Indo-Pacific”

James Corbett, March 10 2018

... the writing is on the wall: The neocons in charge of the American war machine have chosen India to be their next best hope for a potential roadblock to Chinese dominance in Asia, and they're re-naming the entire region just to prove it.
