The FISA Memo, Obama and the Election that Almost Wasn’t

“Round up the usual suspects,” will be as far as the Democrats will be willing to go in the wake of the FISA memo’s release. There is nothing in that memo that anyone following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation doesn’t already know. All the memo does is corroborate the bread crumbs left behind by a … Continue reading The FISA Memo, Obama and the Election that Almost Wasn’t

The FISA Memo is Just the Beginning of Fighting the Swamp

The FISA memo was released by the White House today.  Completely unredacted.  The fight to keep this memo out of the public eye has been intense.  And since it’s existence was made known it has clarified our domestic politics in a way that few objects ever have. With Russia-gate failing, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation … Continue reading The FISA Memo is Just the Beginning of Fighting the Swamp

Forget Stocks, Look at Euro-Bonds They are the Real Problem

I've been banging on for months along with Martin Armstrong that the real problem overhanging these markets is not an over-priced U.S. equity market.  That's a sympton of a much bigger problem. The real problem is an over-valued European sovereign bond market. Looking at today's bond market we see technical breakouts on yields to the … Continue reading Forget Stocks, Look at Euro-Bonds They are the Real Problem

Turkey vs. the Kurds – The New Syrian Proxy War

The more I read the headlines the more I hope our nukes are no longer at Incerlik air base in Turkey.  U.S. policy in Syria has morphed into this zombie strategy of advancing the “Assad Must Go” no matter what. No matter how many times the pro-Assad coalition shoots our goals in the head, the … Continue reading Turkey vs. the Kurds – The New Syrian Proxy War

The FISA Memo is All the Ammunition Trump Needs to Take on the CIA

FISA is an abomination. Let’s get that out of the way. And since I don’t believe there are any coincidences in U.S. or geo-politics, the releasing of the explosive four-page FISA memo after Congress reauthorized FISA is suspicious. Former NSA analyst (traitor? hero?) turned security state gadfly Edward Snowden came out in favor of President Trump vetoing … Continue reading The FISA Memo is All the Ammunition Trump Needs to Take on the CIA

The Trump/Bannon Show Distracts from the Tightening Hillary Noose

This is a difficult week of news to parse if you aren’t a full-blown conspiratard like me.  Back in August Halsey English and I made waves with our theory that President Trump and Steve Bannon were working with Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange to roll up their Democrat opposition protecting Hillary Clinton from prosecution. This week we see … Continue reading The Trump/Bannon Show Distracts from the Tightening Hillary Noose

Russia’s Crypto Rules Betray Early Hopes

I've been pretty vocal about how Russia has seemingly embraced the crytpocurrency craze.  In announcement after announcement this year it looked like the state apparatus in Russia under President Vladimir Putin's direction would be at the forefront of seeing the opportunities for Russia to utilize cryptocurrencies to avoid the worst of the hostility coming from … Continue reading Russia’s Crypto Rules Betray Early Hopes

Trump Tax Cuts – The Spark That Burns Down the EU

For most of this year I've been wondering what would the spark that would set off a banking panic in the European Union. I know, but what do I do for fun, right? I've chronicled the political breakdown of the EU, from Brexit to Catalonia to Germany's bitch-slapping Angela Merkel at the ballot box.  All … Continue reading Trump Tax Cuts – The Spark That Burns Down the EU
