"The world has fundamentally shifted over the last decade, especially since we’ve emerged from the Great Recession... But the professional class has been very slow to understand what is going on, not just quantitatively but qualitatively in a new generational configuration that I call the Fourth Turning. They don’t accept the new normal. They keep insisting, just two or three years out there on the horizon, that the old normal will return – in GDP growth, in housing starts, in global trade. But it doesn’t return."

"A newspaper is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant and the crazy crazier." If you really want to know how weak Hillary Clinton is as a candidate, you merely have to appreciate that the U.S. media essentially acts as her own personal PR firm, yet the public still recognizes her as a dishonest crook. Brace yourself for the following story, it’s huge.
Is the U.S. really the primary target?
John Kerry Makes Last Ditch Effort To Avert World War III As Saudis, Turks Prepare For Syria InvasionSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 02/10/2016 14:57 -0400
Tomorrow, John Kerry will meet Sergei Lavrov and several of his other counterparts from Europe and the Mid-East in Munich in a last ditch effort to revive Syrian peace talks, which fell apart amid an intense Russian air assault on rebel positions in Aleppo. With the opposition facing imminent defeat, the rebels' Sunni benefactors are preparing to intervene in a move that may very well spark a global conflict.
Following Madeleine Albright's ugly statements, it is very clear from today's outbursts from Bill Clinton that Hillary is growing more and more desperate as Bernie Sanders' bumbling socialism trumps a lying, cheating, crony capitalist... "Vicious trolling," Clinton dubbed apparent Sanders' comments made towards female Clinton supporters, "that are literally too profane often - not to mention sexist - to repeat."
The political class has completely disrupted the American structure of production, made American workers uncompetitive, snuffed the life out of entrepreneurs, and burdened the entire nation with a debt obligation the size of Jupiter. The US economy is not the strongest and most durable in the world — it is an unskilled thirty-two-year-old waiter crashing at his parent’s place and trying to pay down an $80,000 international relations degree.
Few charts do the topic of US citizenship renunciation justice, like the one shown below.
With President Obama unveiling his $10/Barrel tax plan to fund government-subsidized public transportatation (versus an individual's choice over his method transportation), we thought a glimpse at the pros and cons of such a choice may be useful...
There is not one America today, nor two. Politically, there are at least four.
Following Jason Furman's "Baghdad Bob" appearance on CNBC this morning, it is President Obama's turn to gloat over the awesomeness of a 4.9% unemployment rate (never mind the fact that the gains during his presidency have gone to low-paying jobs). A job is a job after all... right?
Mass immigration is continuing to claim victims in Sweden. Murder, assaults and rape have become everyday occurrences in this small country, with a population just short of ten million, which last year opened its doors to almost 163,000 immigrants. The atmosphere on Swedish social media is now almost revolutionary.
“Rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future, especially in communities that rely on fossil fuels. We do them no favor when we don’t show them where the trends are going.” But the President missed, or chose not to recognize, another trend – the world is not decreasing its use of oil and gas; it is increasing it. That information was highlighted a couple of weeks later when the ExxonMobil analysis was released.
