Economy

Iceland Was Right, We Were Wrong: The IMF (David B.)

Following three years of this continuous, uninterrupted failure; Greece has already defaulted on 75% of its debts, and its economy is totally destroyed. The UK, Spain, and Italy are all plummeting downward in suicide-spirals, where the more austerity these sadistic governments inflict upon their own people the worse their debt/deficit problems get. Ireland and Portugal are nearly in the same position.

Ann Barnhardt - A Matter of Record (oliveoilguy)

Ann Barnhardt and (Warren Pollock) talk about the most
important issues of today including the property rights, collateral,
the lack of safety in savings and retirement plans, and the 2012
election. They discuss the Sentinel Bankruptcy as a test case for
violating key safeguards to any and all of your financial instruments
within the context of fraud or banking interests.

MF Global: Beta Test For Bank Holiday & Martial Law (David B.)

The Corzine incident was a beta test implemented by the banking cartel to measure the extent of public and Congressional reaction to overt theft of customer funds, according to Posel.

Iranian Currency Traders Find a Haven in Afghanistan (jdargis)

It is a new iteration of an enduring problem in Afghanistan, where Western officials are already struggling to quell a storm of corruption that has undercut the war effort. In the years since the invasion, the country has become a smuggler’s dream, with a booming opium economy and pervasive government graft that is widely believed to be a factor in funneling Western aid money to the Taliban.

Deutsche Bank’s Business With Sanctioned Nations Under Scrutiny (jdargis)

Now the authorities in the Justice Department and the New York County district attorney’s office are debating how deeply involved Mr. Lawsky’s office should be in the investigations. A spokesman for Mr. Lawsky said the department “will continue to cooperate and work with our law enforcement partners both federal and state.”

Extreme Weather (jdargis)

Rains that are almost biblical, heat waves that don’t end, tornadoes that strike in savage swarms—there’s been a change in the weather lately. What’s going on?

What's up with Zerohedge?

Is it just me, or are others finding  that Zerohedge's site has been hosed for the last day or two  (except for the ads)?  Any word on this?  It seems more than a little peculiar that such a go-to site for information during these unstable economic times is suddenly "off line".

America's Demographic Cliff: The Real Issue In The Coming, And All Future Presidential Elections

BLS Bureau of Labor Statistics Census Bureau Congressional Budget Office default Department of Justice FBI Gallup Germany Gross Domestic Product Japan Medicare None Obamacare Unemployment

In four months the debate over America's Fiscal cliff will come to a crescendo, and if Goldman is correct (and in this case it likely is), it will probably be resolved in some sort of compromise, but not before the market swoons in a replica of the August 2011 pre- and post-debt ceiling fiasco: after all politicians only act when they (and their more influential, read richer, voters and lobbyists) see one or two 0's in their 401(k)s get chopped off. But while the Fiscal cliff is unlikely to be a key point of contention far past December, another cliff is only starting to be appreciated, let alone priced in: America's Demographic cliff, which in a decade or two will put Japan's ongoing demographic crunch to shame, and with barely 2 US workers for every retired person in 2035, we can see why both presidential candidates are doing their darnedest to skirt around the key issue that is at stake not only now, be every day hence.

Ann Barnhardt

Greetings,

I have been reading and listening to CM for well over two years now.  This site in invaluable to me in my preparations for difficult times ahead.  CM makes poignant arguments and backs them up with facts, and does so in a manner that is calm and logical.  In no way does he incite fear or panic with his arguments.  That's his style and it is what it is.

Others have different approaches.  Max Keiser is somewhat zany, like Groucho Marx on benny pills, but when you listen you understand that he has a insiders grasp of the monumental fraud that is taking place.  Gerald Celente is like the Joe Pesci of the Bronx, a civilized man, but don't push him!  Everybody has their own style and that's as it should be.  We have different backgrounds and different ways of expressing ourselves.

But I can't sit idly by and listen to the diatribes of Ann Barnhardt without calling her out for what she is: hysterical, a nut, and a religious zealot.  When I first heard her in another interview with Warren Pollock I was impressed.  She was a little fire plug and telling it like it was, I thought.  But after seeing her little tasteless Koran burning on the internet, I wonder how people can take her seriously?  Again, I believe she has insight into what is going on the financial world, but to go on Youtube and inflame and degrade the belief system of a significant percentage of the globe shows that she is flighty and emotionally out of control.  It would be different if she spoke her heart in a respectful manner about the contradictions of religion in general and if she used examples from a variety of religions to illustrate her point.  But no!, she claims to be a Christian, (as if it doesn't have elements itself that could be offensive to 21st century sensibility), and with the same Jihad-like zealotry as those she claims to oppose.  For example, how would this nice little piece from Leviticus sit with Miss Barnhardt?  "However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you.  You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land.  You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permenant inheritance.  You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Isreal, your relatives, must never be treated this way." Leviticus 25: 44-46

But this is not a religious forum and I don't intend to make it one.  I would just like to know how this community views Miss Barnhardt considering the egregious excesses she has shown she is capable of.  In my view, she does a great damage to the cause to trying to raise awareness of the difficult times ahead despite her knowledge of the systemic breakdown.  I don't mean to say she should be banned from Peak Prosperty, but I would like to know how others feel about her histrionics.  And you might try wikipedia's piece on HPD (Histrionic Personality Disorder). 

Your comments will be greatly appreciated.

Soulinrovolt,

My approach to Ann Barnhardt is to listen to what she says, and run it through a fact checker like I do with everyone else.  If she is factually wrong, she must be called out on it.

The beauty of this site is that it is fact and data based rather than based on ideology.

Extreme Weather Man Made

I just recently watched two documentaries:  What in the World are They Spraying?  and Why in the World are They Spraying?

These two documentaries are disturbing to say the least.  Apparently, weather control technology, better known as Geothermal Engineering, has been well under way since the '70's. 

Has anyone else seen these two documentaries?  Any comments? 

Anyone notice all the chemtrails in the sky?  Anyone have information on the H.A.A.R.P. center in Alaska?

I am feeling very dis-empowered right now.

Here are some links to past contrail/chemtrail discussions.  Some hysteria, some facts, some made up things.  Sort through and formulate your own opinions.....

http://www.peakprosperity.com/forum/chemtrails/37096

H.A.A.R.P is what it is.  Everything from an ionospheric boiler, to an earthquake generator to an atmospheric heater so the lizard aliens will feel welcome and warm when they get here, why even an upper atmosphere radio communications research facility!!! 

From Wiki:  "Various scientists have commented that HAARP is an attractive target for conspiracy theorists because according to computer scientist David Naiditch, "its purpose seems deeply mysterious to the scientifically uninformed"."

I did hear that it caused Snooki to get pregnant.  surprise
