Americans are used to thinking of the Third World, with its inequality, hopelessness and violence, as somewhere comfortably far away. But wealth inequality in America is a clear and present danger not just to our economy, but also our personal safety.
All governments need crisis, no matter how much lip service they give to the idea of “peace.” Crisis is a well-known Machiavellian strategy to gain and solidify political power and persuade public opinion. Crisis provides the stage where governments can control all sides.
Let’s recap recent events. Brangelina finally tied the knot. The six Jolie-Pitt children wrote their parents’ vows, and Angelina Jolie’s dress was adorned with their drawings. How do we know? The wealthy couple made $5 million selling the story of their betrothal and the related photos. Reportedly, the money is going to charity. Meanwhile, Nick […]
“Polo Mogul” John Goodman is facing a retrial on charges related to a 2010 accident that resulted in the death of Scott Wilson. To claim first degree vehicular homicide, the prosecution must prove that Goodman caused Wilson’s death by “… the operation of a motor vehicle … in a reckless manner likely to cause the death …” and that “At the time of the accident, the person [Goodman] knew, or should have known, that the accident occurred; and … The person [Goodman] failed to give information and render aid as required by s. 316.062.”
Goodman was driving a 2007 Bentley GTC when the accident occurred. During the first trial, Goodman’s defense claimed that his vehicle”surged” without his manually employing the throttle, which led to the collision. The reported speed at impact, by both the prosecution and the defense experts, clearly suggests that Goodman never “stopped” at the stop sign. But according to the state-provided 911 transcripts, Goodman told a 911 dispatcher that he had stopped. Could he have suffered a concussion and not known exactly what happened? Absolutely.
President Barack Obama strode to the podium Aug. 28 to announce that “We don’t have a strategy yet” for responding to ISIS’s cancer-like spread across the Mideast. That’s the first time I can remember in which Obama was flat-out honest with the world. The poor fellow finally admitted that he’s not up to the task.
In a blistering portrayal of Republican Scott Walker, Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, criticized the Wisconsin governor for grabbing women “by the hair and pulling us back.”
Not even a government monopoly can overcome basic economics. Lured by the promise of federal subsidies (read “free” money), school systems across the country went all in on the Michelle Obama pet project National School Lunch Program’s Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. But it turns out kids don’t want what Obama is peddling.
That’s done it. The beheading of a second American journalist has convinced a majority of Americans that the jihadist terrorists known as the Islamic State pose a significant threat to the United States. And they want this country to do something about it.
A combination of my crystal ball and just a little common sense says a major stock market correction is in our future. Stock prices continue to rise to all-time heights, all based on one thing: the Fed being forced to keep printing fake money so Wall Street and stock investors can get rich on the misery of the rest of us.
Economic officials claim that Americans are “hoarding” money in an analysis out from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis that attempts to explain why inflation is lower than expected even after the central bank pumped massive amounts of money into the economy.
