Wall Street, Banks and Angry Citizens
December 31, 2018

As we head into 2019, leaving the chaos of this year behind, a major question remains unanswered when it comes to the state of Main Street, not just here but across the planet. If the global economy really is booming, why are leaders and their parties around the world continuing to get booted out of office in such a sweeping fashion?

Washington’s Bloated Big Engine That Can’t – Why the Shutdown Threat Matters
January 22, 2018

We have been here before—-in the blow-off stage of a stock market mania that is being driven by nothing more than momentum. Speculators and robo-machines alike are buying the market solely because it is going up (almost) every day.

How the US Aristocracy Deceive the US Public

Can Trump Fix The Economy In 2017?
January 3, 2017

The Western world and that part of the world that partakes of Western explanations live in a fictional world. We see this everywhere we look — in the alleged machinations of Russia to elect Donald Trump president of the US, in claims that Saddam Hussein and his (nonexistent) weapons of mass destruction were a threat to the United States…

The Great Goldman Sachs-Trump Con Job
December 24, 2016

During the 2016 Republican Primary Campaign which was one of the most immature, intellectually insubstantial and vicious in the history of American politics – devoid of ideas and policies but heavy on petty playground name calling – Florida Senator Marco Rubio ripped into Donald Trump and implored his fellow Republicans: «What we are dealing with here, my friends, is a con artist.

Never has this rung more true than the result of the 2016 American Presidential Election. Nearly all pundits, pollsters, world leaders and members of both the Democratic Party and even the Republican Party expected Hillary Clinton to triumph at the ballot box last week…

November 16, 2016

This will be a summary, update, and extension from, a 25,000-word masterpiece of historical writing: the obscure, little-noticed, but hair-raising and scrupulously documented, account of how U.S. foreign policy, starting in 1994 (shortly after Bill Clinton became President), began to be subcontracted-out or privatized to Silicon Valley and America’s top weapons-firms such as Lockheed Martin: Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed’s magisterial 22 January 2015 article, «How the CIA made Google: Inside the secret network behind mass surveillance, endless war, and Skynet»…
