If recent history is our guide, it is now time to either take some money off the table or short the hell out of the big indexes – or whatever else you like to do when the market looks overbought.
The basic predicament we are in is that the current crop of leaders in the halls of monetary and political power do not appear to understand the dimensions of our situation.
The mind-boggling part about all this is that it’s not really all that hard to grasp.
Our collective predicament is simply this: Nothing can grow forever.
What happens to the current $57 trillion in TCMD as it advance it by 8% per year for 30 years? It mushrooms into a silly number: $573 trillion. That is, an 8% growth paradigm gives us a tenfold increase in total credit in just thirty years:
For perspective, the GDP of the entire globe was just $85 trillion in 2012. Even if we advance global GDP by some hefty number, like 4% per year for the next 30 years, under an 8% growth regime U.S. credit would be twice as large as global GDP in 2043(!)
If that comparison didn’t do it for you, then just ask yourself: What exactly would US corporation, households and government borrow more than $500 trillion for over the next 30 years? The total mortgage market is currently $10 trillion, so might the plan include developing an additional 50 more US residential real estate markets?
More seriously, can you think of anything that could support borrowing that much money? I can’t.
Not enough to increase in real terms (versus gold, for instance) but enough to make shorting that market a really bad idea.
So are we 2007 America or 2006 Zimbabwe? A lot is riding on the answer.
Beware- Jim Rogers is exercising while doing the interview. Hehe.
Mr. Henninger’s quote limited his observation to “partners,” which can be construed as other political leaders or figures.However, Mr. Obama still has most of his voter support. Obama still has the ability to lie and much of his support base is too disinterested to care. Many are incapable of understanding politics beyond the cult of personality and “what’s in it for me.” Many would vote for Ted Cruz if he convinced them he would provide more freebies than Obama.
While Obama’s cult status is gone, his popularity among the masses remains. He has lost his ability to work with “partners” but not with the masses. What remains may still be enough for Obama to continue to weaken the US economically and politically.
After posting yesterday’s blog regarding two of the latest military leaders that Obama has purged, my friend Nena S. sent me the story beneath the videos. It really helps to paint the bigger picture.
At the same time that Obama is purging the military, he has been busy keeping one of his campaign pledges, which is to create a “civilian national security force, just as strong, just as well funded as the U.S. military”. There can be little doubt that DHS fits that bill. This is the same DHS that has solicited for 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point bullets they claim are for “training”. The question is, why train with hollow point bullets that are not only much more expensive but designed to do maximum damage, and illegal for warfare?
Perhaps Obama is one step ahead of his ‘friend’, the now deposed Muslim Brotherhood and Egyptian President Morsi who was removed from power by the Egyptian military aft the people there rose up en masse.
After the search began, Hudson said she was asked by an investigator with the Coast Guard Investigative Service if she was the same Audrey Hudson who had written a series of critical stories about air marshals for The Washington Times over the last decade. The Coast Guard operates under the Department of Homeland Security
^^^In the above case, all of the government goons deserve their teeth kicked in, from the Judge to the dipshit with a weapon in their hand.
The World Council of Churches (WCC) in Geneva claims to represent and serve 345 churches worldwide. What has it done to help the persecuted churches in Iraq, Syria and Egypt? Or the flood of Syrian refugees into Jordan and Lebanon? Answer: it has devoted the whole of 2013 to promoting a World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel (September 22-28). That is, it has poured its Swiss francs into stirring up the one corner of the area that is currently almost calm.
In addition, today the Temple Mount is home to the Al-Aqsa mosque, and many Muslim worshipers and Arab leaders have expressed vehement opposition to Jews’ visits to the site, and have even attacked Jews who come to the area.
It’s happening again. The US lack of intervention in Syria (and implicit and explicit support for the rebels) has apparently emboldened none other than Al-Qaeda. As the WSJ reports, a flurry of recent attacks by al Qaeda-linked militants in Iraq – strengthened by their alliance with jihadist fighters in Syria – is threatening to undo years of U.S. efforts to crush the group, widening sectarian conflict in the Middle East. Iraqi security officials say al Qaeda-linked fighters from the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, or ISIS, are moving aggressively to re-establish a base of operations in Anbar province, the stronghold of the Sunni insurgency during the U.S.-led war in Iraq.
“The Obama administration should focus its attention on getting answers to the lingering questions surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attacks and ensure that Americans are kept safe and sound,” he said.
Militias in eastern Libya have seized control of key oil infrastructure, launched their own government, and created their own army in a bid to improve their bargaining position as they demand semi-autonomy from the central government in Tripoli.
Their actions have reduced oil production to about a third of its post-civil war high and prompted international oil companies to reconsider investments in Libya. The outlook is worsening as declining security erodes the central government’s power and armed groups with their own agendas gain ground.
Iran’s regime has made stopping the spread of Christianity a cornerstone of its crackdown on religious freedom. There are estimated to be as many as 370,000 Christians in Iran, according to the most recent U.S. State Department report. The clerical rulers see Christianity as a threat to Iran’s majority ultra-orthodox Shiite Islamic religion.
Yes, that’s correct; we are watching a Marxist takeover of this nation every day now. With the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama Jr., the “fundamental transformation” of America is almost complete. Do not be fooled into believing that the Democrats are your friends, people like Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Harry Reid and others in the Democratic Party (and also a few RINO’s) are not gently pushing, but are forcibly SHOVING this nation to its doom.
As it turns out, the one who was dividing our country was not Christians. It was President Obama. In an amazing display of hypocrisy he was doing the very thing he was accusing Christians of doing. After promising to unite our country, he has divided us at every opportunity including left against right, rich against poor, black against white, government against the people, and even Christians against Christians. Our country has not been this divided since the Civil War. President Obama has brought us to the brink of another Civil War.
President Obama’s anti-Christian bigotry has now infiltrated all levels of his administration, including the U.S. military where our soldiers are being indoctrinated with a steady diet of anti-Christian hatred. The attacks on Christians are ramping up. Soldiers are being threatened with punishment for donating to any evangelical Christian organizations, which is a flagrant violation of their Constitutional rights.
President Obama proclaimed to the United Nations General Assembly in September 2012: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
In keeping with this sentiment, his administration decided to scrub all federal law enforcement training materials in order to eliminate the use of such words or phrases as jihadists or Islamic terrorists, since the use of such terms could be viewed by Muslims as evidence of Islamophobia.
Earlier this week, about 100 conservative clerics asked for an audience at the royal court in the capital, Riyadh, to denounce the campaign as a conspiracy by women and a threat to the country.
SOLAR WATCH: Activity On The Sun Is Intensifying – Sunspot AR1882 Erupts With A Major Solar Flare, Unleashes X1-Class Flare And Coronal Mass Ejection; Earth’s Magnetic Field To Receive Glancing Blow From Three Other Prior CMEs; Could Trigger Mild Polar Geomagnetic Storms! UPDATE: Solar Flare Sparks …
X-FLARE UPDATE: Earth-orbiting satellites have just detected a second X-class solar flare on Oct. 25th. The X2-class eruption at 15:07 UT followed an X1-event at 08:01 UT. There is no reason to think this fusillade will end soon, so stay tuned for more flares. Solar Flare alerts: text, voice.
GLOBAL ERUPTION ON OCT 25TH: Solar activity is high and intensifying. New sunspot AR1882, which rotated over the sun’s eastern limb earlier today, promptly unleashed an X1-class solar flare, adding to a series of lesser flares already underway from sunspots AR1875 and AR1877. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded a bright flash of extreme UV radiation from the X1 flare, which peaked at 08:01 UT on Oct. 25th:
Nuclear Reactors Worldwide Vulnerable to Earthquakes and Flooding
A 1-foot hightsunami hit the Fukushima coast today after a 7.3 earthquake struck around 200 miles off the Japanese coast.
Fortunately, there is no report of damage at this time.
Remember that Japanese seismologists warned that Fukushima was vulnerable to earthquakes and tsunamis long before the 2011 earthquake. And the giant 2011 earthquake may have “awakened” the fault … increasing the likelihood of other big earthquakes in the region.
It’s not just Japan …
The government of Japan is ready to sign into law a new ‘state secrets’ law that will crush journalism in Japan and possibly jail whistleblowers for as many as 10 years. With the deteriorating situation at Fukushima only beingreported to the world via the alternative mediaand Japan ready to gag the Japanese press and whistleblowers with threats of jail time, is there something that the Japanese government knows about Fukushima that they are trying to hide: Fuel Removal From Fukushima’s Reactor 4 Threatens ‘Apocalyptic’ Scenario. Radiation Fuel Rods Matches Fallout of 14,000 Hiroshima Bombs from the rest of the world? Video reports below including a brand new one from Paul Begley who shares that Fukushima workers CANNOT escape the radiation in Japan and are being lied to by this same government that now wants to gag the press.
Uhm, did he say “Tokyo’s role as the region’s leader“? Precisely in what is Tokyo a leader any more? Imported Chinese smog? Unsolicited gamma radiation? Goughing at the pump? Sex doll sales? That pretty much covers Tokyo’s current leadership areas in the region. Sadly, it is this kind of sociopathological self-delusion (and denial) that is the mark of the Japanese government, and why not only was Fukushima a guaranteed outcome (and has now become the worst radioactive catastrophe in history, nearly three years after the explosion), but why day by day, Japan’s society is slowly sinking into the Pacific. Mostly metaphorically, but also literally.
Not only is it not clear to SocGen, worst of all it is not clear to Mario Draghi, which is why his nightmares will only get worse and worse, as loan creation collapses further, as non-performing loans accumulate, and as Europe’s credit-money zombies finally escape their cages and start biting chunks of meat off of (Europe’s unemployed) people.
If your neighborhood is not as safe as it used to be, then you have something in common with the rest of the country. All over America, crime is on the rise. According to a government survey that was just released, violent crime in the United States increased by 15 percent last year, and property crime was up by 12 percent. If violent crime keeps increasing at this rate, it will approximately double in just six years. But as I wrote about the other day, when the next major economic downturn strikes it will probably greatly accelerate the growth of the crime rate in this country.
TODAY MARKS THE 100th anniversary of the largest and most-well funded hate and defamation group in the history of mankind: the Anti-Defamation League, or “ADL.” The organization was originally called the “Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith” after its parent group, the Jewish fraternal order B’nai B’rith (meaning “Sons of the Covenant,” or, literally, “Sons of the Cut” — referring to circumcision). (ILLUSTRATION: Abraham Foxman, director of the ADL)
The ADL was founded in the immediate aftermath of the conviction of Atlanta B’nai B’rith President Leo Frank for the strangulation and sex murder of a 13-year-old factory girl, Mary Phagan. The international Jewish community did not believe that Frank should have been convicted. They had mounted a huge press, publicity, legal, and lobbying campaign to convince officials and the public that a Black man, James Conley, was the real killer. But the evidence against Frank was so strong — and the evidence against Conley so thin — that the Southern, all White, and doubtless philo-Semitic (like most of the Christian South) jury unanimously convicted Leo Frank and sentenced him to hang. Two months after Frank’s conviction, on October 20, 1913, the ADL was formed. To this day, the ADL and its allies promote the fiction that Frank’s conviction was a result of “anti-Semitism” and use the case a rallying cry to garner support and funding.
First of all, the settlement, as the folks at Better Markets have pointed out, may wipe out between $100 billion and $200 billion in potential liability – meaning that the bank might just have settled “for ten cents or so on the dollar.” The Federal Housing Finance Agency alone was suing Chase and its affiliates for $33 billion. The trustee in the ongoing Bernie Madoff Ponzi scandal was suing Chase for upwards of $19 billion.
