As Fed Printing Pauses Total World Debt Tops $100 Trillion… We Have Some ‘Un-Spending’ To Do…

Next. Total World Debt:

If, as Lacy Hunt explains “debt is an increase in current spending in lieu of future spending,” then we have some ‘un-spending’ to do…

AGAIN: Maryland Voting Machines Flip To Dem!

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ)—Early voting just started last week in Maryland, but there are already accusations that some voting machines are changing Republican votes to Democrat. Now Republicans are calling for an investigation by the State Board of Elections.

Meghan McCorkell has more on the machine controversy.

As Marylanders go to the polls, there are concerns that the vote you cast may not be for the candidate [...]

The Coming Revolution: Evolutionary Leap or Descent Into Chaos and Violence? There are only enough full-time jobs for 50% of the working-age population, and half of the full-time jobs pay under $35k per year and a tyrannical assembly line of incarceration is now in place.

The longer mainstream society stays on the present course, the worse things will get and the harder it will be to overcome the growing crisis. No matter how much we are inclined to ignore it, we will not be able to escape this reality: under present economic and government policy, more and more people will fall deeper into debt and extreme poverty. The present economy only works for 30% of [...]

From This Day Forward, We Will Watch How The Stock Market Performs Without The Fed’s Monetary Heroin

By Michael Snyder

Mark this day on your calendars.  The Dow is at 16974, the S&P 500 is at 1982 and the NASDAQ is at 4549.  From this day forward, we will be looking to see how the stock market performs without the monetary heroin that the Federal Reserve has been providing to it.  Since November 2008, the Fed has created about 3.5 trillion dollars and pumped it into the financial [...]

The American Dream Goes Bust: Home Ownership Rate Back To 1994 Levels

Wolf Richter,

The quintessential ingredient in the stew that makes up a thriving housing market has been evaporating in America. And a recent phenomenon has taken over: private equity firms, REITs, and other Wall-Street funded institutional investors have plowed the nearly free money the Fed has graciously made available to them since 2008 into tens of thousands of vacant single-family homes to rent them out. And an apartment building boom [...]

The Federal Reserve’s QE program was a risky, multi-year experiment, and today many news stories are offering sober assessments of the results. Here’s one from The Washington Post…

North Pole covered in Ice over 8 days time — South Pole still @ record levels

8 days ago, I put out a video showing that the North Pole Ice pack was growing rather rapidly. After doing some mileage computations on the spread of the ice, I made the statement that the North Pole would be covered in a couple weeks (or less).

Here we are 8 days later…. and now the ice reaches across to Russia, with just one small open spot yet to freeze.

Why the Feds Won’t Confiscate Your Retirement Plan… But They Will Do This

From Mark Nestmann,

Over the last few weeks, I’ve had close to 30 consultations with Nestmann Group clients. And one of their top concerns is that Barack Obama or some future US president will find a way to confiscate the money in their IRAs or 401(k) plans.

It’s not going to happen. Now, I know that’s not what you’re reading from some of my colleagues covering the wealth preservation and asset [...]

Bob Moriarty: Flock of Black Swans Points to Imminent Stock Market Crash

Between a rising U.S. Dollar Index and black swan events around the world, it’s looking like bunker time for Bob Moriarty.

Egon von Greyerz -Disorderly Reset Coming – Dollar Goes to Zero

Egon von Greyerz, Founder of Matterhorn Asset Management, says, “You can’t have governments borrow more than ever and have interest rates at zero.

It won’t happen overnight, but there will be events that trigger short term pitfalls, but this is a [...]

Russia Wins the Currency War, Even if it Doesn’t Want to… There Are Many Losers When A Currency Gets Smashed, But That Never Stopped Policymakers.

Wolf Richter,

“The ruble weakened to a record for the fifth day on concern Russia will quicken its move to a free float after more than $20 billion of interventions this month failed to halt the depreciation,” Bloomberg reported today, the same sort of line we’ve been seeing for weeks – in an environment when all major central banks have declared currency war on each other.

Globalization Has Two Guaranteed Consequences: Permanent Instability And Endless Boom-And-Bust Cycles.

by Charles Hugh-Smith

Globalization continually creates imbalances that fuel a perpetual instability that gradually impoverishes every sector other than global capital.

Globalization has two guaranteed consequences: permanent instability and endless boom-and-bust cycles. As noted in Forget “Free Trade”–Focus on Capital Flows, the key engine of globalization is mobile capital: capital that can borrow money for next to nothing in one nation and then move that capital to other nations where yields are [...]

Scientists unexpectedly discover unknown secrets to how continents are formed after detecting weird plate vibrations in Australia

Continents may not have been created in the way we thought

By Nick Rawlinson, University of Aberdeen

From the 1950s until recently, we thought we had a clear idea of how continents form. Most people will have heard of plate tectonics: moving pieces on the surface of the planet that collide, pull away or slide past one another over millions of years to shape our world.

There are two types of crust that [...]

Does This Look Like A Housing Recovery To You?

By Michael Snyder

We just learned that the homeownership rate in the United States has fallen to the lowest level in 19 years.  But of course this is not a new trend.  As you will see in this article, the homeownership rate in the United States has been in a continual decline for more than 7 years.  Obviously this is not a sign of a healthy economy.  Traditionally, homeownership has been [...]

It’s Official… We’re Right Back to a 2007-Type Bubble

by Phoenix Capital Research

When the Financial Crisis hit from 2007-2008, the Fed implemented a series of emergency strategies to deal with this.

Those strategies fall under numerous technical terms, but at their most basic, they consisted of cutting interest rates to zero and printing money to buy securities (US Treasuries and Asset Backed Securities).

Bear in mind, NONE of these strategies were designed to actually heal the financial system.  In fact NONE [...]

Eurozone’s Biggest Banks Really Heading For Doom?

The Eurozone’s biggest banks would not be able to survive another financial crisis, according to the results of a stress test taken by the European Central Bank. However, the test also showed that these banks have made steps to address the problem and are already on their way to financial recovery. Many media outlets have used misleading scare tactics, highlighting the failure of the banks in their headlines, in an [...]

September: Worst Plunge Ever in New Home Prices. Housing Bubble 2 In Its Full Glory Has Popped!

Wolf Richter,

The Commerce Department reported another miracle on Friday. Or rather a mirage. In September, new home sales edged up 0.2% from August to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 467,000 units. This isn’t a huge number, compared to the crazy days of Housing Bubble 1, but it was a 6-year high! And the media went gaga over it.

So, new home sales in August were initially reported to [...]

CDC Says Ebola Droplets Can Only Travel 3 Feet … But MIT Research Shows Sneezes Can Travel Up to 20 Feet

by WashingtonsBlog

Checking the CDC’s Math

This week, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) admitted that Ebola can travel through the air in aerosols, but claims that it can never go more than 3 feet.

Let’s check their math …

CDC (like the World Health Organization) admits that Ebola can be spread through sneezing or coughing.

But the CDC itself admits that flu droplets can travel 6 feet.

Mythbusters demonstrated that sneezes can nail people some [...]

15 Signs That We Live During A Time Of Rampant Government Paranoia

How does it feel to live under a government that is getting even more paranoid with each passing day?  Yes, we live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, but that is no excuse for how ultra-paranoid the federal government has become.  Today, every single one of us is viewed as a “potential threat” by the government.  As a result, the government feels the need to intercept [...]
