A Foreigner's View Of America's Presidential Election

In recent years it has become obvious to discontented Americans that its government is no longer the servant of the people.

Civil War II - Fourth Turning Is Intensifying (Part 1)

As we enter the final stretch of this vitriolic, deplorable, venomous, propaganda saturated, deceitful, rigged presidential election spectacle, it becomes painfully obvious this Fourth Turning is careening toward bloodshed, bedlam, confrontation, and civil war.

Hillary: Deceit, Debt, & Delusions (Part 2)

Here’s the game being played behind the curtain, never to be revealed by Hillary, Yellen, the captured dying legacy media, or anyone beholden to the establishment for their paycheck or bribe...

Wall Street: The Trump-China Missing Link

If in the next two presidential debates Trump points to the crucial missing link in the whole plot – Wall Street - he might as well lock on as a surefire winner.

David Stockman: America Now Lives Under A "Perverted Regime"

"the elite media wants to blame the phenomena of the Trump campaign on racism and xenophobia and, you know, small-mindedness of one type or another. But I think the underlying driver here, the underlying alienation comes from an economic policy that has benefitted enormously the bicoastal elites..."
