Iran’s President Tacitly Admits Iran is Cheating on Nuclear Agreement

Countering recent US sanctions and President Trump’s talk of ending the “bad” nuclear agreement with Iran, Iran’s president threatened to restart its nuclear program. If his threat is true as stated, he unwittingly admitted something highly supportive of Trump’s position:   Mr. Rouhani said that a reconstituted nuclear program would be “far more advanced,” a […]

2017 Economic Forecast: Global Headwinds Look Like Mother of All Storms

Headwinds that are starting to assail deep structural flaws in the US and global economies form the basis for my 2017 economic forecast, which looks like an all-out economic crisis building throughout the world. Some of these headwinds are global; some more locally focused within the United States, but that which brings down the US economy wounds the world anyway. […]

HILLARY’S WARS (Pt. 2): Wikileaks Proves Syria about Iran & Israel

Wikileaks’ exposure of Hillary Clinton’s emails reveals that US intrusion in the Syrian Civil War is really all about Iran and Israel and is part of a masterplan that started with Hillary’s advice to enter the Libyan Civil War. Hillary’s War is another expensive American adventure in nation building as the US inserts itself into another civil war, ostensibly to restrain ISIS […]

The Great Global Economic Trainwreck

Granted, global economic collapse can’t be declared as a fact yet, but train wrecks take time. A train doesn’t just crash like a car; it keeps crashing, piling car upon car, banging, tearing out trees, bending steel, plowing up rails, smashing buildings … until all the momentum is finally exhausted to the last squeak. It didn’t take […]

2015 Economic Predictions

I start the year by ending my blog in fulfillment of my bet, so this will be my last post, even as I lay out my 2015 economic predictions, which I think will be my best to date. Last year, I predicted that the economy would become particularly volatile in the fall — especially the U.S. stock […]

No Progress in Iran Nuclear Talks Predictable as Deadlock in Congress

Predicting the Iran nuclear talks would get nowhere was as easy as shooting fish in a fish market. What’s hard is understanding why so many others fail to see the obvious. Last week, I wrote,   It would surprise me greatly to see the West have the pluck to say, “This was our fourth deadline, […]

Economic Forecast 2014: Strong Headwinds Face Global Economy

My “Economic Forecast 2014” starts with Russia. The first breezes of coming turbulence are already blowing in on the U.S. as a storm I’ll name “the Russian Rampage” hits Crimea and Russia braces for the the U.S. response. Foreign-owned U.S. bonds held in custody of the Federal Reserve took their largest drop on record last […]

Do Europeans have a knack for underestimating evil?

Does Europe’s chief negotiator think social intercourse is really what is important about talking with Iran? Perhaps Iran will not have time for nuclear armament if she keeps it busy talking. Just days into a new agreement with Iran, which already drags the clock out for more time to talk, Europe’s chief negotiator is suggesting the […]

IRAN NUCLEAR CRISIS: See how Iran Duped the West to buy time

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani claims in the linked articles and video to be a master of subterfuge and deceit, as if he is practically the author of the Iran nuclear crisis. When asked why he engaged in negotiations with the West, Rouhani claims to his own people, “We needed time,” and he points out Iran […]

WND WorldNetDaily – Paranoid Propaganda for the Masses

I would suspect most of my readers have never seen the WND (WorldNetDaily)  website, but I sometimes browse mirky backwaters in search of economic news that the press is largely missing. In the process, I  stumbled into a cesspool of  propaganda known as WorldNetDaily or WND, which is a watering hole for people with views so […]

2013 Economic Predictions Revisited

It’s time for the mid-year audit of my 2013 economic predictions. I learned from last year and throttled back a little this year. While luminaries like Marc Faber predicted a great economic collapse in 2013, I decided the government has a lot of energy to keep powering through a bad plan. It would be almost […]

2013 Economic Predictions

As I consider my 2013 Economic Predictions, I have to take a lesson from my “Economic Predictions for 2012.” I was right in all the trends, because economic fundamentals drive the trends, but I was wrong in not seeing how denial of economic reality could maintain itself longer than I thought, slowing the speed and […]

Israel-Iran war: When will Israel attack Iran? When will America? (2012 Predictions)

Will an Iran war with Israel and/or America happen in 2012 before the U.S. presidential elections or after? When will Israel attack Iran? What is the key factor that could change Obama’s timing that no one is thinking about … except maybe Obama.

Nuclear Iran not to be feared as much as Islamic Iran, says Ayatollah Khamenei

This revealing article about the threat of a nuclear Iran is sourced directly from Iran’s own FARS news agency, quoting Iran’s “Supreme Leader” as to what the West must fear. While it was part of my recap of the weekly news, I felt the quotes from Ayatollah Khamenei divulge intentions that should not remain buried in […]
