WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO BAD INVESTORS
By Murray Soupcoff
Oh, my what surprise (well to CNBC stock pumpers and gullible, greedy U.S. stock investors anyway).
The long knives were out; and Mr. American stock market took a beating, on Friday, that […]
September 11, 2001 was a moment deeply etched into the psyche of the American mind. It brought this country together like at no other time in the past. For George Soros it had a completely different meaning. To Soros it showed that foreign policy under Clinton, Bush and further even in the Obama presidency was […]
The Founding Fathers knew what Lord John Dalberg-Acton knew. And far too few of us know the totality of Lord Acton’s sage sentiment: “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”
“Great men are almost always bad men.” America […]
In 1992 “Agenda 21” was made public by the United Nations at a UN Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio De Janeiro and signed by 178 countries. It had been modified many times since then. “Agenda 21” is transforming into a new set of laws being […]
It seems every day there is a new development in the burgeoning scandal that is Servergate, so here’s what’s happened since our original piece. The number of classified emails discovered that Hillary Clinton wrote using her personal email account has grown to 60, and another batch that […]
Not too long ago, about 30 years and before, the word “socialism” or “socialist” evoked a rather basal angst in the stomach of most Americans. Socialism was then widely acknowledged as the archenemy and the antithesis of the American system. Originally based on individual sovereignty, free markets […]
Today I learned that Barack Obama has proposed an Amendment to the Constitution that would limit the 1st Amendment. It would seem that President Obama doesn’t like the fact that we have freedom of expression, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. We also have a […]
Clint Eastwood’s iconic Dirty Harry Callahan uttered one of the greatest movie lines of all time: “A man’s got to know his limitations.” It would appear no one in Washington, D.C. has ever heard of Harry or his weighty wisdom.
No one in our nation’s capitol seems […]
It strikes me funny when all these Republicans are running on the same principles that President Bush ran on. And President Bush was a great president. A lot of idiots don’t agree, but do you really want to compare him to Clinton, Obama and Carter. Not on your […]
One of the most curiously persistent surrealisms of Washington, DC is the reflexive deference given the Federal Reserve System. The Washington elite tends to accord more infallibility to the Fed than do Catholics the Pope.
Now comes one of the world’s top monetary reporters, Ylan Q. Mui, […]
Coined by political scientist Samuel P. Huntington, the term Davos Man was meant to refer to members of the global elite who view themselves as completely international. They have no need for the term “nationality” and feel that governments are merely shadows of time past to be used as facilitators in their global operations. ~ […]
In his speech of August 3, 2015 President Obama invoked pity for asthmatics in promoting his Clean Power Plan, and did that mainly to forestall criticism of the plan. I am not an asthmatic. But, I am a life-long respiratory-allergy and chronic-sinusitis patient treated by an allergist. So, I do have some empathy with asthmatics; […]
Soros has been called a philanthropist by many, and has total net worth is located offshore so that there is no way to view the source of his funds of what he does with those funds. The Washington Posts columnist Harold Meyerson, praised Soros for engineering the “privatization” of the Democratic Party. Meyerson, a member […]
So far, the undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress have revealed that Planned Parenthood is illegally profiting from the sale of fetal body parts, a felony. Now, there is substantial evidence the abortion provider is manipulating its procedures and performing illegal partial-birth […]
The talking heads of the establishment are heaping scorn on Donald Trump like squawking crows defecate on those underneath the phone lines where they sit. The long knives are coming out of the sheaths of the New York-Washington literati. Everyone is attacking Donald Trump. But why is such animosity spewing from our media, our corporations, […]
Jackson Hole, Wyoming, has long been famous for its extraordinary scenic beauty, its vibrantly authentic “Old West” culture – and since 1982, for its annual economic policy symposium where monetary policymakers from around the world gather to discuss the impact of central banking on […]
When Hitler came to power in Germany, Friedrich Hayek, an Austrian who had been following the rise of totalitarian movements, had already moved to England. There he wrote a book of warning to the Socialists in England. He felt they did not understand Nazism or Communism […]
There have been many who have had an impact on United States politics, but perhaps none more than George Soros. A man who in his book “ The Alchemy of Finance” admitted to an exaggerated view of his place in the world. “I have always thought of myself as some kind of God or economic […]
The Republicans are freaking out about Donald Trump’s refusal to rule out a 3rd party run. And why would he rule it out? He is the frontrunner now. If he shows a lack of confidence in himself or his dedication to this run, he may lose supporters. It’s part of what people love about him. […]
At least one former and four current Senators, as well as one former Representative are running for president. Unfortunately, well-intended but easily misunderstood roll call voting analyses often enable legislators to lie about their true positions instead of revealing them, thus doing more harm than good.
Fellow Comrades, Socialists, Proles, and Occupy Wall Street allies,
Merci beaucoup (that means thanks very much in French – always have to throw in a reminder of my favorite country) for biking, walking, taking public transportation, electric or hybrid vehicles, carpooling or however else you made it […]
The pro-Trump crowd has taken to comparing Donald Trump to Ronald Reagan. Yes, all Republican candidates since 1988 have been attempting to claim the Reagan mantle, but Trump supporters have been loudly repeating this mantra for weeks. Earlier this month, prior to the first Republican debate, […]
