    Off The Cuff: Media Censorship & Misinformation

    Our access to facts is under siege from all directions
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, October 21, 2020, 3:02 PM

    12

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and John Rubino discuss:

    • Media misinformation is rampant now
    • Disgruntled people are migrating to independent sources
    • Ideological influence and financial inequality are making us a more divided society than ever
    • What will the post-election future look like?

    This discussion is extremely relevant in the current moment of censorship accusations swirling in the media, as major publications like the New York Post clash with Twitter and Facebook over which news is fit to print. Access to a thriving free press is Amendment 1 of the Bill of Rights, and for a very good reason — it’s a cornerstone of liberty. Though that feels very much in jeopardy these days.

    If we can’t agree on the facts, how can we intelligently work through our differences? How can we govern ourselves fairly and objectively in such a world?

    Building A Better Plan

    Our leaders have no Plan B, so we need to each create our own
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, October 16, 2020, 8:11 PM

    41

    Executive Summary

    • Whether incompetent or malicious, our leaders are failing us
    • The “Great Reset”: the plan the Davos crowd has for us
    • The need for a plan of our own
    • What the wisdom of past regenerative cultures has to teach us

    If you have not yet read Part 1: The Illusion Is Failing, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Increasingly it’s difficult to see what the plans of the various world authorities might be.  It’s either one based on staggering incompetence (always possible), or it’s a far darker plan — but neither will have our best interests at heart.

    And from my view, it’s increasingly difficult to assign the whole mess to simple incompetence.

    There’s a plan afoot to create fear, uncertainty and doubt .

    Why does this plan exist?  Can we explain it?  Certainly not on humane terms.

    Have you heard of The Great Reset plan yet being pushed by The World Economic Forum (i.e., “the Davos crowd”). It greatly concerns me because…

    Off The Cuff: Re-Localization Is The Future

    The question is: how to do we pursue it gracefully?
    by Adam Taggart

    Tuesday, October 6, 2020, 9:13 AM

    26

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and James Howard Kunstler discuss:

    • The sorry state of the US political system
    • From Covid to Epstein: can our “leaders” bungle even worse?
    • Why Re-localization is the answer, whether we want it or not
    • Why we’re never returning to “normal” as we knew it

    Jim Kunstler returns to the program to report the latest view through is “Long Emergency” lens.

    It’s a little scary: many of the trends he’s long been predicting have been suddenly accelerated by the events of 2020. Particularly his warnings that our urban & suburban lifestyle of mega-marts, McMansions and food deserts were going to start failing us, resulting in flight to rural areas.

    As Jim explains here, re-localization of our economy and social networks is going to be the way of the future — whether we choose it, or reality forces it upon us.

    The Approaching Frenzy Of Tipping Points

    As the future gets disrupted, how will you fare?
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, October 2, 2020, 7:55 PM

    20

    Executive Summary

    • The approaching frenzy of tipping points
    • Why collapse is already in progress
    • Choosing emergence-y over emergency
    • My personal plan

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Welcome To Easter Island, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    A tipping point is a critical moment in time when the old gives way to the new — suddenly and irreversibly.

    This is where we are – when the old is breaking down, in an uncomfortable interregnum, to be followed by something completely new that is simply waiting to be brought to light.

    Seen this way, this is an exciting time to be alive. At least that’s the way I see it.

    So what’s coming next? And what steps should we be taking today to meet it?

    In my opinion, the most important action to take now is…

    Off The Cuff: The Fed Is Just Playing For Time At This Point

    It doesn't know how to escape the mess it has created
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, September 23, 2020, 7:51 AM

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Axel Merk discuss:

    • Fire resilience
    • The Fed has no clue how to get out of the box it’s in
    • The Fed is only looking at the immediate term; it leaves tomorrow’s problems to tomorrow
    • Why the best short-term policy is a good long-term policy

    Last week saw another FOMC statement, which Fed-watcher Axel Merk returns to the program to de-code for us.

    In short, the Fed is giving itself more leeway to deal with a problem it has no clue how to fix. It is simply playing for time, trying to reassure us in the meanwhile that it has everything under control.

    My Personal Formula For Success

    It can be yours, too
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, September 18, 2020, 9:01 PM

    Executive Summary

    • Hard Work
    • Persistence
    • Luck
    • Systems Thinking

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Collapse Is A Process, Not An Event, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Because I think in systems, I tend to fashion my projects in ways that they feed off of and interact with each other.

    As well, my systems view informs my sense of how things are going to turn out in the future which defines what I consider to be useful projects to pursue.

    I have a formula for success.  It works really well for me and I want to share it with you.

    Fair warning: not everyone is going to like it.

    Off The Cuff: It’s Getting Harder For The Fed To Hide Its Guilt

    It favors the rich as it makes the system dangerously more unstable
    by Adam Taggart

    Wednesday, September 9, 2020, 10:03 AM

    11

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Wolf Richter discuss:

    • The danger of asset bubbles
    • The Fed’s serial addiction to blowing them
    • Tesla and the shale industry as case studies
    • Covid-19s legacy on society

    Everyone loves a bubble until it bursts. And we now live in age of multiple bubbles, with the Federal Reserve at the center, blowing each with vigor.

    This inevitably will end painfully, as every prior bubble era has. But along the way, the more massive the distortions become, the greater the injustice between rich and poor becomes, and the more damage will ultimately follow.

    And, slowly but surely, more and more people are waking up to the reality that the Fed’s serial addiction to blowing bubbles is actually the cause of many of today’s problems, not the cure as it would have us believe.

    Get Ready: Here’s What’s Coming

    Life will never be the same. Here's what to do about it now.
    by Chris Martenson

    Friday, September 4, 2020, 8:55 PM

    43

    Executive Summary

    • The incredible correlation between Economy & Energy
    • Why limits matter (and will matter more in the coming years)
    • The coming, unsolvable collision of our Economic, Energy & Environmental systems
    • The looming deadline: Why you need to take action before June 2021

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Losing Hope? Focus On Gaining Life Instead., available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    After a dozen years of research and inquiry, I’ve come to a major set of conclusions: There’s a massive economic crisis coming.  And an energy crisis.  They are conjoined and each will juice the destructive effects of the other.  Oh, and there’s also an ecological crisis, which is similarly intertwined with the other two.

    After watching the utter inability of our national “leaders” to properly manage the basics in their response to the pandemic,  I simply don’t think we’ve got the ability to sort through the complexities and subtleties of navigating three gigantic, inter-related crises.

    Which means it’s up to us — to become resilient and prepared at the individual level.

    First, and most important, each of us needs to start by…

    Off The Cuff: The Coming Oil Shortage Of June 2021

    Why oil will suddenly start mattering again
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, September 3, 2020, 7:09 AM

    21

    In this week’s Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Art Berman discuss:

    • US oil consumption is down ~15%, a good proxy of GDP shrinkage
    • Why US oil production will be dramatically lower by next June
    • Why the US may never produce as much oil as it did between 2016-2019
    • Why oil, not interest rates, will be the limiter of economic growth going forward

    For many years on this website we’ve warned of the coming crisis of “Peak Cheap Oil”. We may now be entering a new, accelerating stage of that story.

    Petroleum geologist Art Berman returns to the program to explain why he predicts US oil production will be materially lower by next June, and why it will likely never return to its 2016-2019 highs.
