As the generational war heats up, we should all remember the source of all the bubbles and all the policies that could only result in generational poverty: the Federal Reserve.
Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen recently treated the nation to an astonishing lecture on the solution to rising wealth inequality–according to Yellen, low-income households should save capital and buy assets such as stocks and housing.
It’s difficult to know which […]
David Cameron warned last night that the global economy risked another crash and said in an article that ‘red warning lights’ were ‘flashing on the dashboard of the global economy’ and the eurozone was ‘teetering on the brink’ of another recession.
The warning came at the same time that the world’s largest economy, Japan, fell into another recession. Japan shrank by an annualised 1.6% in the third quarter. This followed […]
Peter Schiff of Euro Pacific Capital and SchiffGold.com predicts, “I think we are going back into recession, and what is the Fed going to do to avoid that recession? More QE, and maybe that’s going to be the wakeup call. The only reason we’ve been able to get away with it is because people believe it’s temporary. They believe it’s going to work. They believe the Fed has an exit […]
While the United States is fully preoccupied with global crises ranging from the fight against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, the spread of Ebola and the conflict in Ukraine, there is another development on the world stage which threatens the economic health of every single American and American based business. Specifically, I am referencing the Trans Pacific Partnership. The protocols of the TPP establishes a free-trade zone/bloc stretching from Vietnam […]

This Is Monetary Madness Gone Off The Deep End
Harley Schlanger, historian and national spokesperson for LaRouchePAC joins us to discuss the total rejection of Barack Obama, his globalist policies and his Bankster inspired agenda.
“He has given us so many reasons for impeachment, but you have to pick at the most important ones.” says Schlanger, “Under the war powers act Obama should have gone to the Congress about three weeks ago on the question of the troops we sent […]
ISIS wants to start minting its own currency to challenge the global monetary system. RT’s Maria Finoshina explains how the terrorists’ economy made it this far.
And no US sanctions on those who buy illegal oil from ISIS, what a coincidence…..
ISIS is the new boogeyman created by the US and its allies to justify US intervention and domination in the middle-east. The US funds terrorist training camps in Turkey to fight […]

Federal drug agents conducted surprise inspections of National Football League team medical staffs on Sunday as part of an ongoing investigation into prescription drug abuse in the league.

VIDEO: 10 Stunning Facts […]
By Michael Snyder
Did you know that some Americans are being hit with health insurance rate increases of more than 500 percent? Taking advantage of “the stupidity of the American voter”, the Democrats succeeded in ramming through one of the worst pieces of legislation that has ever come before Congress. The full implementation of Obamacare has been repeatedly delayed, but now we are finally starting to see the true horror of […]

There are few events that could lead to a truly cataclysmic upheaval of the global order.
Right now, half a world away and out of the view of most Americans, exactly such developments have been set into motion. These events are so significant that they promise to shape the geopolitical landscape for decades to come. And, should the trend continue unabated it is only a matter of time before the American way […]
In 1936 the American Standards Association recommended that the A above middle C be tuned to 440 Hz. This standard was taken up as the International Concert pitch.

Despite the best attempts of the global elite, patriots worldwide have exposed some of their most hidden secrets.
Incredibly, many of these exposed secrets have remained relatively, although hidden in plain view.
Here are three videos that exposed some of the shadow government’s biggest secrets.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on Saturday reiterated that President Obama’s expected action on immigration is in its final planning stages.
“We’re in the final stages of developing some executive actions,” Johnson said. “We have a broken immigration system. The more I delve into it, the more problems I see,” Reuters reported.
Speaking at the Reagan Presidential Library in California, Johnson told the crowd that the current immigration system has serious problems […]
NBC News reports Lung cancer is the top cancer killer of women, and some medical experts say that they are seeing more patients in their 20s and 30s, many of them nonsmokers.
In the article, they talk about the cause and a cancer expert from Boston is quoted as saying “We just don’t know why.”

The foreign exchange rigging-and-ripoff scandal is just the latest in an endless series of banking scandals that continue to fester and that never land anyone in jail. The traders, their bosses, and their bosses’ bosses, all the way up, aren’t even perpetrators. Banks – that is stockholders who had nothing to do with this – pay some fines, those actually involved get their bonuses – or in “harsh” cases, end […]

Just imagine the reaction of the liberal media if a video had surfaced of a George W. Bush administration official admitting that “lack of transparency” was “a huge political advantage” in selling the Iraq war and that they relied on the “stupidity of the American voter” to launch an attack on Iraq? That video would be everywhere.
However, the clip of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber using those exact phrases in talking […]

MM88 – Brits Debate Money
by Michael Noonan
Until there is a clear break of elite’s central banking dominance over the gold and silver
markets, there will be no dramatic recovery reflective of where the true price for both
metals should be. Whether it is $5,000 or $10,000 for gold or $100 or $200 for silver
[the ounce], the current distorted pricing, as dictated by the paper derivative market and
not actual physical metal, will prevail demonstrating the power the elites […]
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (MarketWatch) — Bullish enthusiasm for stocks, which has jumped enormously over the past month, is likely to continue for a while longer.
That is good news from a short-term perspective, since cash coming from the sidelines could very well keep the equity market’s recent rally going until the new year.
But it’s bad in the long term, according to contrarian analysis, since there already is a lot of euphoria […]
BOEHNER: Obama ‘damaging presidency itself
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today responded to President Obama’s unilateral action on immigration, saying that the president has not only refused to listen to the American people, but in doing so has sabotaged efforts to enact immigration legislation, punished those who have obeyed the law, and encouraged others to come here illegally, putting their lives at risk. Boehner pledged that the House […]
