Riffing off of my blog post from earlier today, I go over why Italy's new coalition agreement gives German Chancellor Angela Merkel the opportunity to break with the U.S. on Foreign Policy while saving face with her ever--growing domestic opposition. Also, why the Trump administration is moving down a very dangerous path with its over-the-top … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Italy’s New Coalition and Merkel’s Way out of the Middle
Clarity is here in Italian coalition talks. And the markets hate what they see. So does Brussels. Five-year Italian debt blew out over 1%, CDS spreads have moved over 20 basis points in a week. The markets are trying to scare these outsiders now in charge in Italy to soften their stances on reform and … Continue reading Italy is Forming the Epicenter of the EU’s Fateful Shift
Donald Trump has betrayed his base completely. Yesterday's shameful countenance of the massacre of lightly-armed Arabs was the breaking point.

At least it is confirmed for us. Donald Trump wants regime change in Iran. His cancellation of the JCPOA was a decision born of his myopia. He has surrounded himself with people who reinforce his view and manipulate him via his vanity. And the price of implementing his current plan will be a global debt … Continue reading Will Trump Torch the Global Economy on the Bonfire of his Vanity?
The short answer for me about the Iran Nuclear Deal is that I don't have an opinion on it as being either good or bad. It's why I spoke so little about it. To me the whole thing seemed like a big show between two sides not willing to give up anything of value to … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Trump Ditches JCPOA, What’s Next?
“We will pay the price, but we will not count the cost.” – Rush, “Bravado” Donald Trump is set to kill the JCPOA or Iran Nuclear Deal and spark a major reset of foreign relations. Is this a mistake or the right course of action? That depends on your perspective. It depends on whether you … Continue reading Will Trump Pay the Price for What He Wants from Iran?
