    We're Living In 'The Groundhog Show'

    In which our leaders make the same mistakes over & over

    It's said that truth mirrors fiction. I'm finding this to be the case more and more these days.

    Take the 1993 comedy Groundhog Day. Bill Murray wakes up each day to relieve the exact same daily circumstances and interpersonal interactions. He relives the same day, February 2, over and over again.No matter what he does, the repetitive cycle won't break.  He goes to sleep, wakes up to his alarm, and it's the morning of Feb 2 again.

    Likewise, in The Truman Show, Jim Carrey lives in a simulated environment where everybody's an actor in a popular TV show except him.  For him, it’s his real life.  But although he doesn't realise it, everything around him is completely scripted and fake.

    If merge these two movies together, they perfectly describe the world in which we live today.  Welcome to Groundhog Day meets The Truman Show.   Let’s call this mash-up The Groundhog Show.

    A Survival Guide For 2019

    How to safely navigate the 'Year Of Instability'
    by Adam Taggart

    With the bursting of the Everything Bubble, we declared last year as the 'Year Everything Changed'. This will be the 'Year of Instability', possibly preceding an upcoming 'Year Of Woe' in 2020.

    But look, we're not saying the world is the process of ending imminently. It's just that we've entered the part of the timeline when things are going to start to get really rocky.

    And we think it's much more useful to think of 2019 as the 'Year Resilience Matters'. It shifts the focus away from fear and instead towards the many things you can do to protect yourself and those you care about – and even to position yourself to prosper through the coming challenges.

    Off The Cuff: The People Are Rising Up Against The Elites

    The working classes have hit their breaking point
    by Adam Taggart

    In this week's Off The Cuff podcast, Chris and Charles Hugh Smith discuss:

    • Class Warfare
      • Growing tenions between the rural/worker vs urban/financier classes
    • Why The Yellow Vest Movement Matters
      • It represents a populist anger brewing around the world
    • Financialization & Globalization Are The Disease
      • They give the elites tremendous advantage over everyone else
    • The Empire Is Striking Back
      • The global establishment is squashing unrest by every means it has

    Chris continues to track the Yellow Vest protests across France Europe because it's representative of a populist ire festering around the globe. Decades of financialization and globalization have created a parasitic elite class that is bleeding the working classes dry.

    France is emerging as ground zero for a rebellion against those elites. And the Establishment Empire is doing all it can to suppress the movement before it catches fire in other countries, as it is already threatening to elsewhere in Europe. How soon until we see folks don their own yelow vest in the US, UK, Canada and Australia?

    France Yellow Vests Protests: Act IX

    Violence between the State and the People is escalating
    by Chris Martenson

    This past Saturday (1/12/19) more Yellow Vest protests in France broke out.  The protests always happen on Saturday, and because this was the ninth one it's being called “Act IX.”

    More violence occurred, and the police are becoming more and more draconian and brutal in their responses.  Many injuries have happened among the protestors, a lot of them quite serious. Tempers are fraying all around.

    What the France election tells us about the world economy
    by Adam Taggart

    For investors and regular folks just trying to protect and growth their wealth, now is the hardest of all possible times.

    As we've written extensively about here at PeakProsperity.com, we're living through the Mother of all Financial Bubbles. Simply maintaining this sham is requiring the world's central banks to inject an enormous amount of thin-air money into the markets. Every. Single. Day.

    Everything has become distorted. Price signals are completely broken and mean nothing. Fundamentals? They haven't mattered for nearly a decade. It’s very, very hard to maintain one’s perspective during such a time.

    And things get even more nuts each time a critical election occurs, as we just had yesterday in France.

    A Brief History of US Money – Crash Course Chapter 9

    The rules get changed (a lot)

    Looking at the past 100 years of the US dollar's history, one theme becomes abundantly clear: in times of crisis, the US government has no issue with changing its own rules or breaking its own laws. And those "temporary" emergency measures have a nasty habit of quickly becoming permanent.

    It's almost August, the month everyone in Europe takes off on holiday to forget their troubles. This year may be different, though, as not only can many not afford a vacation, but Europe's troubles loom so large that forgetting them won't be easy…
