These two numbskulls both "made their bones" living off the Bush family legacy. They accomplished nothing on their own. They went to the best schools on their name (see Ivy league legacy slots). They had "success" in business on their name (see "Gee..I owned a baseball team or "how I fronted for the boyz). They entered politics on their name. Talented, brilliant, aggressive people were kept out of their Ivy league slots for these two numbnuts to "get ahead". Achievement and leadership were just words to these parasitic elites. 

Now before I get too deep bashing the Bushnuts, I have to step back a moment and put them in perspective. We have thousands of Bushnuts in our Government and Business at the highest levels. The old adage of hard work and achievement does not apply to them. The doors are opened for them and all they have to do is step though.

To keep a Pyramid going, a system of "legacy leadership" is essential. It even becomes pervasive at all levels. That is why in the "old days" we had restrictions on it. It was called nepotism. It even goes to its origin with the Popes and Cardinals appointing their nephews as Bishops. CONtrol. It maintains the CONtrol. 

Unfortunately a system that gravitates to this ultimate "insider" CONtrol grid begins to implode from decadence. You've heard that term..."wealth in decadence".  Well now you are living it. The insider system of corruption within all of our institutions of government and business is beginning to decay... a nice word for rot.  The desperate benefactors of this system (Stay in the system and prosper...system) are scared. They are aware that all pyramids collapse and are scrambling to prepare for their inevitable fate. 

There is no "fixing" the issues, since that would eliminate most of these "leaders" and "Pyramid Parasites".  So, they are battening down the hatches and creating as much mayhem as possible to cover up the collapse of the "perfect" Ponzi. You know how history treats Ponzis and Pyramids....well so do they. Too bad we're cannon fodder

Well that's good enough for me. We are officially at war then. Jeb (Prefers no last name) just said on CNN we are at war. Well again that is good enough for me, after all, he is the next president ( I am on record for that). Oh I know he's polling 8% of Republipukes, but what do they know.....sorry folks its a done deal. 

CONveniently one of the terrorist left his passport after blowing his own ass to hell and guess what? He was from Syria. Jeb (no last name preferred) stated to erstwhile reporter Jake Yapper on CNN after prodding from Yapper, that we would need "boots on the ground" now in Syria. Jeb just last week was defending our "open border policy" to the chagrin of most of his CONservative following. Now he's ready to defend the borders of Saudi Arabia by putting our troops on the ground in Syria......with Russian troops already stationed their at the bequest of the Syrian gov. I like it. It smell like Napalm in the morning (exhale slowly). I'm starting to feel young and virile again.

 "We will do whatever is necessary". "We will allow our commanders to decide the necessary next steps in this war against these terrorists." Now I'm really excited. War. War. War. What else can we do? We don't have a choice. After all we invaded Iraq after the last "terrorist attack" even though they were known to have no ties to 911. We created a destabilized region full of terrorists and proceeded to do the same in Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, and Syria.

The faces of WAR

My favorite Senate War Leader, Lindsey Graham today just announced to Jake Yapper that we cannot win this war unless we go on offense inside of SYRIA and put our young men and women on the ground against "ISIL". I thought he wanted us to overthrow Assad in Syria but now we have to go into Syria to help them? I'm so CONfused. At least I have a strong War Leader like Lindsey to lead our young men and women. Unfortunately when Lindsey is speaking I have mixed feelings about my virility. I guess it works for John McCain, they're best friends. Double the TSA. Triple down on the Patriot Act and NDAA. I'm gettin' warm all over again.

Now back to the economy...........What economy? Who cares? We're at WAR. We have to come together. This will require sacrifice. We now have MOAR terrorists to kill. The Pope says so.

Major paradigm change ahead? Maybe, but I doubt it. Is that Nature's Law? Hmmm, no. Sorry, wish it were, but Nature's Law guarantees no such change for us. It does in fact guarantee a change, but the basic law of Nature is not equality in a species with a major change in the current imbalances. There are laws of Nature such as genetics that will interfere with "equality". There are many laws of Nature in Science and Mathematics that cannot be changed fundamentally. We will obey these laws regardless of the wishes of democracies and Central Banks. 

Central Banks would like you to believe that Keynesian money printing and various derivatives of that printing can overcome the very debt these programs have created that is now mathematically insurmountable.  Central Banks would like all of us to believe that a perpetual debt machine can continue to function regardless of how large it becomes. That "we the people" can be CONtrolled to believe this proposition through a complex system of media CONtrol, Government CONtrols/mandates, and of course Corporate CONtrols. We are to believe that we can be "managed"..."massaged".....and "manipulated" to follow in perpetuity. For many of us caught in this matrix, it actually at times seems this is possible for unending CONtrol.

What is guaranteed in nature are simple laws must be obeyed. One law is for every action there will be an opposite and equal reaction.

So are they Omnipotent? Can they continue a Ponzi in perpetuity? They have to keep every major World Power in it and working together. Then what happened in August? China devalues the yuan and all hell breaks loose. That doesn't sound like CONtrol...... at least not absolute CONtrol. If they had CONtrol then China would have coordinated their Yuan move. That was a very small move on China's part but most importantly it was a message to those that closely follow these events that a major Central bank had stepped outside of the Ponzi and that implied a major break in the illusion of opmipotence. Then four major explosions followed in Chinese chemical plants. China then stabilizes their currency and their markets stabilize. Out of chaos comes order. Or did it? Perhaps it was a beta test. Or maybe it was a clear signal how quickly the entire, complex house of cards can collapse. Maybe not tomorrow, but like all Ponzis a day of reckoning will come. Extend and pretend is not a plan.....its only a spring being coiled.....and their will be an opposite and equal reaction. What kind of order comes out of this remains to be seen but without a doubt their will still be haves and have nots. You decide what and how you wish to make your own preparations based upon your own study and research. I'm an optimist when I say precious metals may give you an advantage over those relying upon the paper ponzi to carry them through.

Included below are five questions and answers from today’s Q&A with Bill Fleckenstein.  The questions are from his subscribers and they get to read Fleckenstein’s answers every day.
Bonus Q&A
Question: If you could only make 1 trade to support your position on the Fed and its impact on the market over the next year what would it be?

Answer from Fleck:  Long gold.“ 

I have many friends that are feeling increasingly uncomfortable with the current state of affairs. Those that are in the best position for any coming hardships are those with the least "needs". They've simplified their lives and have kept themselves prepared physically and mentally for potential hardships that may lie ahead. They seem the most happy. Hope all of you have used these last 6 years wisely. gl

Can you believe it? All ya gotta do is just get the magic ticket. You start by getting an education. You meet the right woman and fall in love. You have a couple of great sons and get rich. You go to synagogue. You have celebrity friends. You rub shoulders with presidents. You have billionaires begging you to keep their money for them. You even manage to make 20% during horrific down years in the market. You really have made it. What could possibly go wrong? Its Amerika and anyone can get rich and live the good life, right?? 

Just one lil' problem. You forgot to pay. You know what I mean. You gotta pay the vig. You gotta pay the boyz and the boyz know what you're doin'. They know you're griftin' the man. Protection is not a game and if you don't have it, then you're gonna pay. Greed is a funny emotion. It seems like you would think a few billion would be enough, but there are homes in the Hamptons. There's that nice art work. There's the Manhattan penthouse. Your wife has to have the weekly $1200 hair appointment. Your boys are starting families and need a stake. You know it takes money to keep your reputation up. You forgot to pay the vig. You know very well who the vig goes to don't you, but you got greedy. 

Greed and then you've got vanity now on top of it and a fatal brew begins. You need some really big investors for your game and you bring in some tough players out of Bear country. That was a mistake wasn't it. Now your world changes. Your beautiful boys. Your beautiful wife. Your two best friends. Was it worth it? Was the money, the fame, the vanity ...........was it really worth it? What would you give for one more minute with your boys? You can't buy it with money can you? You just can't buy that time.

You know it too. Maybe you're like me and you just want to believe that somewhere deep within the system there are some "good guys" that are working to save the rights of our Republic that for so many years formed the basis of what some of "old timers" thought was America. We don't want to accept that most of our leaders are just like us..... Self-serving and corrupt.  Of course YOU don't fall into that category of citizenry but maybe you know some of your friends that do.

You know what I mean. You hear them talking about how many illegals are getting into the country and using our social systems like education and health care for "free".  You wonder if they know that we spent most of the last 100 years destabilizing most of their Latin Countries through a series of Government overthrows and genocide through a covert Shadow government. After years of stealing their resources through our Multi-National Corporations and creating generations of poverty and Dictatorships that use torture and "disappearance" as standard procedure.....who can blame the populations from coming across our borders in droves. We destroyed their cultures, their morale, their internal safety, and their belief in a God. Do you think your friend gives two shits why they are coming across our borders.... that is IF he even knew (which he doesn't). Its called a "Convenient Ignorance". 

I now smile at the self-delusion. You and I won't escape. Oh, I know, its your friend that's really at fault because YOU CARE. You and I give a shit about what we've been doing for a hundred years and that make's our culpability lessened. You know what I mean...."its the BANKER'S fault". We've done everything that we could do............right....??? with that.

Surely you've heard this meme over and over in every possible derivation that the English language can create. I listen to Sirius when I travel and spend sometimes hours and hours on Bloomberg or CNBS as the talking heads repeat this meme until nausea envelops me. I wonder why they say "This has been one of the longest recoveries ever since the "Great Recession" or "the 2008 economic collapse".  

I remember like it was yesterday throughout 2008 the same talking heads would repeat there was "no recession" or "there was no threat of a stock market collapse" or "the banking system was safe". Now they say we we are recovering from just such events. They feel the need to repeat this "recovery" over and over and over as if repeating a lie somehow will make it a "truth". They even have the audacity to bring the SAME CREATURES from 2008 on air to repeat these statements today. There is no shame. There is only the truth. You either recognize the truth or you accept the lies. Unfortunately for most people accepting the lies has always been the path of least resistance and are doomed to repeat their history lesson.

Headline #1: “Most Americans Have Less than $1,000 in Savings”; Headline #2: People Saving Too Much is Now a Problem

Repeating history is always an interesting journey because one really does not know for certain what history one is doomed to repeat. Does the greatest financial fraud in history portend decades of pain and recovery due to the malinvestment and debt created? most sheeple believe "just another recession and stock market scare and a couple of years of tough times"..............Then magically the Casino will be roaring again just as it did in 2009 when the Great Recession was magically declared over. 

“The naive doesn’t see the danger until it is at his throat.” — Noam Chomsky

Now we are in to the abyss. 95 million working age Americans alone have STOPPED looking for work. 52% of ALL Americans are receiving Government money. Think of that.....and this is a "recovery" in a "healthy economy". Imagine if we hadn't recovered. And now the Primary Bear has begun and most of you don't even believe it, even though its happening right in front of you. Hundreds of SnP stocks are down over 20%. Many are down over 40% and you fall for the Indices heroin that we are only down "single digits".  Many investors look at their own portfolios down over 20% and tell themselves "well I picked the wrong stocks" but they don't know the game. The game is to keep you in the Casino. No windows in the Casino keep you at the table as they pick the last flesh off your carcass. gl

You are supposed to if you're trying to guess the casino's next move. The smart money is going short or increasingly stepping to the side in the current casino. Trading in either direction is being met with stop runs, option cram downs and general puking. 

Think about this. Imagine if you live in what is known as the "developing world". This nomenclature applies to the "have nots". Meaning they don't have a "reserve currency".  It really means they get to have their precious resources like oil, diamonds, zinc, iron ore, bananas, sugar...etc etc.... purchased by the "developed nations" that HAVE a "reserve currency". In other words there are countries that have the "ability" to just print money and buy REAL assets and resources with their counterfeit currency. AND what REALLY is hilarious the developed countries let them DO IT. Is that not the greatest CON ever? 

That's how we get in our cars made of steel and foreign parts and drive on cheap gasoline from the Middle East and laugh all the way to Starbucks and drink coffee bought in South America with Greenbucks. Ain't it a peach?

I kinda like it. I wonder how long this can last? Some of you think it can go on indefinitely. I wonder how long these billions and billions of people want to be our slaves? I guess they like it. Maybe we can make them do it. I'll bet we can. Maybe forever. Who woulda ever thought it? I wonder if this could happen to us? Surely the people behind this are going to do this for us only. Surely they wouldn't enslave us too. We're special and they like us. They like us for our freedoms. I think I really like this game. enjoy and gl.

Oh come on, you understand it don't you? Surely by now you're not that stupid.....are you? I mean, even a third grader can understand or at least google what the BIG LIE means. After all Hitler made it famous by using it as a propaganda tool. You know now right? You tell the masses a really big lie over and over and they'll believe it every time. 

Let's look at some examples just a couple of months after the biggest collapse in decades in the stock market and the economy, we were able to magically announce the "recession" was over. Now that wasn't a lie was it? Further more we only had about 11% official unemployment at that very moment. That wasn't the U6 official number which was 18%. Let's not even look at the actual unemployment number based on historical metrics........but the recession was over and we were in a RECOVERY. 

Now Trillions and Trillions of digital money later we're still in a "RECOVERY". With over 94 working age Amerikans not even looking for work anymore and NOT even counted in the 5.1% unemployment number reported to the masses. It's a RECOVERY. Lets not even talk about the 50 Zillion Amerikans on Food Stamps er EBT cards. We're in a RECOVERY!

Don't look at the dozen major CONflicts raging around the globe right now. Just look at Putin INVADING Syria. He's a monster. He's a monster. He's a monster. We didn't train ISIS. We didn't demand the regime change in Syria 3 years ago. We didn't threaten Iran with an invasion. We don't support the Saudi invasion of Yemen. WE ARE THE GOOD GUYS.

Don't look for the dollar hegemony to change tomorrow but rest assured it will continue to come under pressure and people are growing sick of our BIG LIES. Will they get a critical mass to stop it? Maybe. Maybe something else will stop it. But it will stop. Enjoy the BIG LIE......WE deserve it. gl

Funny isn't it? Those faces represent the leadership of "the people". They stand as the bastions defending the Constitution that our forefathers created and died for. Just take a look at these four "leaders". Do you not see just how much trouble we are truly in? A bloated, corrupt, pyramidal power system has finally devolved into this pathetic group of miscreants posing as elite politicians. These individuals are the Buttfox of politicians.....horribly nearsighted, self-serving bone-smokers. Chosen by the true power for their innate ability to do the 100% predictable....and furthermore if they were to ever deviate from their script a quick reminder of their past puts them right back in line.

So here we are. For anyone out there with one independent neural axon the end is obvious. The perversions of the economic models have become so extreme that even the "shoe shine boy" won't invest in the stock market. Its been a "no bid" market for several months now, but the hidden hand has kept the bucket shop working for its Wall Street boss.  Most of the hapless public will be marched right into the slaughter through their retirement and pension funds. They really aren't in individual brokerage accounts now and believe the money they do have is safe in the money market pool. I wonder what they're going to do when that comes apart? Buy Bitcoin?

Enjoy the Bear of all Bears. It is the ultimate predatory mechanism of price discovery. Patience has given this Bear a major appetite and it will not be denied. Be aware that if they keep the bucket shop open, the volatility will be extreme in both directions and it will destroy anyone leveraged. gl

Maybe you're on the bandwagon for keeping that 80y/o acumen sharp by standing them at a digital checkout lane for 8 hours/day. Think of the benefits. You're keeping Clayton happy by giving him something meaningful and putting some change in his pocket. Sounds good doesn't it, but did you ask Clayton. You see, Clayton has a different slant to the phrase use it or loose it. 

Clayton worked as an engineer for a bearing manufacturer that closed down two decades ago and eventually had to strip the retirement benefits by 70% in 2009 when one of their fixed income vehicles defaulted. Clayton saw his promised/guaranteed retirement annuity decrease and found that his cash savings of 400K just couldn't make a return to maintain his mortgage and expenses incurred when his wife was placed in a nursing home. He saw his nest egg of 400K without an interest return become a nest egg of less than 60K this year as he went into his principal to make ends meet over the past 6 years. He began working as a part time employ at a nearby retail outlet 16 hours/week and hired on at a local golf course as a ranger another 16 hours/week. His green fees were part of his ranger job, but his daily golf game with his old buddies had to be cut back to only one round a week. 

You interest rates saved all of the heavily indebted banks and malinvested Wall Street interests but as Dylan Ratigan famously said there was a price to pay. They were extracting the wealth from savers as interest rates stayed at ZERO and the savers no longer were able to find any vig on their savings unless they entered into a market that anyone with half a brain knew was a they were slowly extracted. Extraction was the price the savers paid to the "recovery". Their family wealth was being sucked dry from them to survive. Its not even that insidious. Its really right in front of your eyes. You're being sucked dry savers so the casino and the greatest game ever created can keep the lights on. So what's left to keep the buying going with the Clayton's of the world. Maybe he can get a full time job at Wally World and make the big time wage. So get to work Clayton and make sure you mop up that spill on aisle 7.
