    Off The Cuff: It’s Getting So Bad They Have To Lie

    Ever more dirty tricks are needed to keep the masses fooled
    by Adam Taggart

    Friday, June 10, 2016, 12:23 AM


    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Mish Shedlock discuss:

    • The B.S. Spewed By The BLS
      • The birth-death model outputs have become a huge joke
    • It's Getting So Bad They Have To Lie
      • We're getting more fake stats to try to hide reality
    • Dirty Politics
      • From the US primaries to the Brexit, dirty tricks are the norm
    • Crony Corporatism
      • How the government is enabling companies to gouge consumers

    "When it becomes serious, you have to lie"

    ~ Jean Claude Juncker, former head of the EU

    Statistics that can not possibly be believed by anyone looking at the actual evidence. Election results that in no way match the exit polls. Yet, somehow, the outcomes tend to overwhelmingly favor those on the side of maintaining the status quo.

    We are at the point in this global journey where it's getting harder and harder for those in power to hide the weakness, injustice and rot within the system. So, like Juncker, they're resorting to more and more lies, more deception, more backroom swindling to maintain the facade that everything is working fine.

    In this week's Off The Cuff, Chris and Mish use recent economic statistics and the elections in the US and the EU to show just how desperate the lies are becoming. Which is an important sign that we're getting close to the point when..

    Brad Friedman: Why To Be Suspicious Of Every Election

    Electronic voting machines have opened up Pandora's box
    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, May 29, 2016, 4:26 PM


    Long an 'exporter of democracy' to the rest of the world, there is ample evidence that the United States lacks even the most rudimentary, basic protections necessary to preserve voting integrity within its own borders.

    Some of the evidence is circumstantial, some is statistical, and some is pretty direct and clear-cut. Taken together, a pattern that emerges strongly suggesting that ever since voting machines, electronic voting machines were introduced in the United States, we’ve had a string of suspect election results that frankly are not consistent with a free and fair voting outcome.

    This week, we're joined by Brad Friedman, election integrity analyst to understand better the systems and practices currently in place to collect and tally votes in America. As we gear up to elect our next president, it's clear that numerous concerns exist about the state of 'free and fair' voting in our country.

    Growth and the Upcoming Iranian War

    by Chris Martenson

    Monday, July 12, 2010, 3:29 PM

    A new Martenson Report is ready for enrolled members.
    Link – Growth and the Upcoming Iranian War

    Executive Summary

    • A war with Iran seems likely before the US elections in November.
    • The US has committed an act of war in deciding to embargo Iranian fuel shipments and international financial activities.
    • The “urgency for dealing with Iran” is driven more by oil competition than military crisis.
    • The US militarily occupies or diplomatically controls every strategically-located oil producer in the Middle East except for Iran.
    • The most probable explanation for the sudden concern about Iran is likely centered over energy and the ‘requirement’ of growth that our economic and financial systems demand.
    • Seeking militarily-secured access to oil halfway around the world is a weak strategy.
    • An Iranian war has the potential to severely disrupt developed economies due to another wild oil-price spike.
