Ron Paul on the Coming Financial Crisis

Ron Paul sees the next financial crisis as the bursting of the dollar bubble. I think Ron Paul is absolutely right to warn CNBC of our next financial crisis. But I’m not sure the dollar is the bubble. Despite rising stock prices and a falling unemployment rate, the United States is on the brink of a catastrophic “financial crisis,” according to former U.S. presidential candidate Ron Paul. And the culprit could be the dollar. “There’s a huge bubble with the dollar,” Paul said on Tuesday’s Read more […]

CNBC: Vaccinations Have Caused the Spread of Disease

Despite the demonization of people who opt out of some vaccinations for their children, there is another side to the story.   I have to admit that I saw the original Weston A. Price story on this topic but decided not to discuss it on this blog. The bullying hatred for people who don’t think everyone should be coerced to vaccinate is so great that I didn’t want to become a target of it. I wimped out. But CNBC did not! “Public Health Officials Know: Recently Vaccinated Individuals Read more […]

Without Integrity and Courage, the Media is Useless

The First Amendment doesn’t work if journalists don’t possess integrity and courage. Why is America divided, and in bad shape? Craven media. Consider this clip from YouTube.com: During an appearance on “Fox & Friends,” former CNBC reporter Melissa Francis talks about how executives at the network tried to silence her when she talked about Obamacare. I applaud Melissa Francis for telling the truth now, but it would have been better if she’d continued to tell the truth in the past. Read more […]

5 Million Missing From the Labor Force

This CNBC article purports to show how complicated it can be to try to figure out what job numbers mean. Much of it depends on how many left the labor force “voluntarily” and how many would like to look for a job if they thought there was any chance of success in doing so. The article shows that the official unemployment rate is a rather meaningless figure. It leaves out many unemployed people because they are not officially looking for work. Shierholz estimates that there are currently more Read more […]

Is This Where The Chamber Of Commerce Gets Their Desire For Amnesty?

I’ve asked more than once why certain people act as if we are in desperate need of immigrants to come here and work. Tom Donohue, the President and CEO of the Chamber of Commerce, actually said that we must have immigration “reform” as soon as possible in order to get “a full and diverse work force” in the United States. He made other statements that made it sound like we had a crisis in the United States of people desperately trying to get workers for new jobs. It seemed delusional. But Read more […]

Obama-chaos: Obamacare Continues to Wreck Doctors

Since we are now in a brief Obamacare “surge” of propaganda that the Affordable Care Act is “working,” here’s a bit of reality to face. A CNBC headline: “Physician says Obamacare is causing ‘chaos’ for doctors.” The administration is furiously trying to rectify another Obamacare issue: faulty enrollment data that could soon become a significant headache for consumers and insurers. The latter say much of the information they have received is practically useless, which means some consumers Read more […]

What Do The Rich Know That No One Is Telling Us?

Think the stock market is going to go higher? I suspect some people may disagree with you. A new survey of family offices by Citi finds that the wealthy are cash heavy—meaning they may fall short of the investment returns they’re expecting. Wealthy families have about 39 percent of their assets in cash, according to a recent poll of more than 50 large family office representatives from 20 countries conducted by Citi Private Bank. Stocks represented about 25 percent of portfolios on average. Read more […]

GOP Run States Best for Business Economic Competitiveness

When I was growing up, my dad always told me that the Republican Party was for the rich people and the Democratic Party was for the working people.  As I became old enough to vote (the year I turned 21 was the year they lowered the voting age to 19), I saw the two parties differently than my dad.  I saw the Republican Party as the Party for business and economic growth and the Democratic Party was all about unions and stopping companies from being successful. Forty years later, I am more certain Read more […]
