When This All Blows Up...

"And so here we find ourselves, at the final torturous, grinding part where the final bubble top is formed. The über-bubble. The Greatest Of Them All..."

What The Hell Is Going On? - Part 3

"I’ve tried my best to seek truth, reveal government deception, and generally be a thorn in the side of the establishment. Based on Mencken’s definition, I’m a dangerous man to the government, who has spread discontent among those capable of thinking things out for themselves. You may not realize it, but the war has already begun. No matter what the hell is going on, I sure hope the good guys win."

It's Bubble Time

Wisdom & discipline will separate winners from victims...

The Mother Of All Financial Bubbles: "This Is The Very Definition Of Unsustainable"

"The Fed is desperately seeking to keep the status quo in place, praying that somehow things turn out OK, and clearly scared to death behind the scenes. But, just like the officials at Oroville, when the cameras are on her, Yellen smiles and tells us that all is well... But when these bubbles burst, and they must, it will be a massively destructive event. There will literally be nowhere to hide from the repercussions."

The Oroville Crisis Exposes The Vulnerability Of America's Entire National Dam System

"Certainly someone in the 1960’s would never believe that the United States would have these issues, but we’ve ignored them far too long... When we look at this dam, which is a highly regulated dam, a dam more highly regulated than almost any others. They had an emergency spillway filled with trees. They had a principle spillway that was in the process of failing and had been for years. So, if this can exist on one of the most highly regulated dams then one can just interpolate and imagine what the rest of the situation is like."

While Elites Played Empire, America Fell Apart

Dear Imperial America: the lifestyle you ordered is permanently out of stock. The banquet of consequences has already been served, and will only become more distasteful the longer we put off facing our skyrocketing debt, runaway elites and delusions of grandeur head-on.

When The Rich Become Preppers, It's Time To Worry

The message here is clear enough: The wealthy have caught onto the idea that the probability of a major social disruption is high enough to merit serious action. Prepping is now becoming “a thing.”

Mad As Hell

Why the electorate is so pissed off...

Kunstler: 2017 Is When The Wheels Finally Come Off

The American people have been punked by their own government and their central bank, the Federal Reserve, for years and the jig is now up. In 2017 both will lose their authority and legitimacy, a very grave matter for the survival of this republic.

As We Enter 2017, Keep The Big Picture In Mind

As bluntly as I can say it, anybody who found the level of disruptions on 2016 overwhelming is going to have a hard time navigating the future. The period of adjustment has only just begun...

Dave Collum's 2016 Year In Review - "And Then Things Got Really Weird..."

"Markets don’t have a purpose any more - they just reflect whatever central planners want them to. Why wouldn’t it lead to the biggest collapse? My strategy doesn’t require that I’m right about the likelihood of that scenario. Logic dictates to me that it’s inevitable..."
