 Inflation/Deflation Part 2 - 03/25/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Concluding my discussion of the difference between inflation and deflation. More on Cyprus. Could it happen in the U.S.? (Yes) Why this depression is already much worse than the Great Depression of the 1930s. Bernanke’s future plans

 Inflation/Deflation Part 1 - 03/22/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:54:47

A grim assessment of the coming unraveling by Blaise Ingoglia. The meaning of inflation and deflation as applied to the current situation. The return to sub-prime lending in the automobile market, worse than last time. American Airlines in Chapter 11 wants to pay $20 million in severance pay to its ex-CEO! And he’s not even being severed… He’s becoming Chairman (not even CEO) of the U.S. Air merged company. More detailed information on why the world economy is in so much trouble following a clip from Cenk Uygur explaining how the derivatives explosion will bring down the entire financial system. More on Europe and Cyprus. Using the fortunes of the U.S. firm Caterpillar to assess the health of the economy.

 The Abuse of Trust - 03/18/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

A desperate world is moving ever closer to anarchy. Money to pay debts simply isn’t there. It has been and will continue to be stolen from the populace. Cyprus is just the latest example of this. The nexus of trust has died. I talk at some length about why printing money to pay off debts does not work. A nation cannot spend its way to prosperity but it can certainly spend its way to penury. That is what is happening today. As in all manner of addiction, feeding money to the money-addict will not solve the problem. The overwhelming complication of securing health coverage under Obamacare. Barry Ritholtz’s take on the fraudulent nature of banking in the United States

 His Experiment Gone Horribly Awry - 03/15/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

America’s situation has deteriorated to the point that it is truly hard to describe the country as “first-world” anymore. More on the horrific situation in Europe. Another Nigel Farage special… Denial is total in the U.S. when it comes to the ravaged economy. It is both sad and pathetic that people just don’t want to know how bad things are. Lots of quotes from bigwigs, including a priceless comment from the ogre in the picture about how wonderful things are… U.S. counties are dying off in droves. The history of debt. Debtwise, we have it good, folks

 There Is No Economic Recovery In China Or Anywhere Else - 03/11/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

China is still shoveling subsidies to loss-making firms. Its economy is massively deformed and the global effects of its imbalances are getting bigger every year. The quality of life is degrading and pollution is an overwhelming problem. More on the bogus unemployment figures. The middle class is dying a slow but steady death in the U.S. Auto loans are soaring, giving a false sense of optimism to the automotive industry. Huge numbers of these loans will default and motor manufacturers will probably fall back into bankruptcy. Increased debt is not giving rise to increased prosperity, just increased stress. More on Bernanke’s crazy experiment. The consequences of the sequester. The ultimate way in which humanity will probably become extinct: it may surprise you

 News Analysis Not Available Elsewhere - 03/08/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:55:04

My take on the unemployment figures (lies), the Dow new all-time highs (misrepresentation), earnings forecasts (absurdly optimistic). Personal income dives dramatically in January.  Eric Holder’s admission that bank executives are above the law (a turning-point). Elizabeth Warren questions officials about why there are no prosecutions. Rand Paul filibusters over official murder of people in the U.S. without trial

 Shortcomings Of The Housing Recovery - 03/04/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Nothing but a phantom rally. An in-depth look at what is causing it and why it must fail. Needless to say, you will not find any of this in the mainstream media. More on how the government and the Fed extend outright favoritism to the banks and other financial institutions. All the politicians and pundits keep bleating that, “the worst is over!” It’s all nonsense, of course but I guess they think if they repeat it often enough it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The monumental debt will never be paid back. All that remains is to inform the American people and for them to understand that. Oakland’s crime problems have become so bad that people don’t even bother to call the police any more. Reprisals taken against the ratings agencies for downgrading American debt are not new. Such behavior under Diocletian in the 4th century resulted in death

 The Health Care Outrage - 03/04/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

The most important thing to realize about Obamacare is that it is just a giant, money-making scam. If you truly understand this, everything else falls neatly into place. The outrage makes sense. It certainly doesn’t excuse or justify it but at least it is the logical outcome. All these various social horrors, it seems to me, will only ultimately be resolved through violence and a variant of civil war which will culminate in horrendous numbers of wounded as well as dead people in the U.S. Listen to today’s show for some of the details. More info on why there is no economic recovery. How long can they keep hiding this information? More information about the details of the sequester which kicks in today. No recovery in Europe either. Charlie McGrath talks about ways to process the information from all sources

 The Desperate Plight Of The Millennials - 02/25/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

The ugly truth about how the millennials are being squeezed out of the job market by older Americans who cannot afford to retire. The wealth gap today between younger and older Americans now stands as the widest on record. Over 43 percent of recent graduates are now working at jobs that don’t require a college education. 16 percent of bartenders and  parking attendants earned a bachelor’s degree or higher. The Millennials really are the "Last" Generation before economic, monetary and political collapse. The velocity of money: what it is and what it means for the economy. The Global Competitiveness Report 2012-2013 by the World Economic Forum and America’s place in many different spheres. Very sobering.  Leveraging and deleveraging: how will the system unwind all the debts that have been incurred? John Brennan, the nominee to head the CIA, a proponent of the worst aspects of the Bush-inspired atrocities and the American public’s apathy and indifference coupled with aggressive approval for much of what was once thought to be invasive (the use of drones, for example). The crazy lending is back (subprime, non-existent asset protection, absurdly low interest, etc…) Some good news: U.S. oil production is increasing and looks to keep doing so for the foreseeable future

 Big Trouble Dead Ahead – The Case Of Japan - 02/22/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

The tragedy of Japan is, unbelievably, being duplicated in the United States. Easy policies to apply, you see. Easy to get reelected. Easy to kick that stupid old can… Listen to the painful details from the 1950s to the present. It defies belief that America should be going down the same path (minus the savings). Separately, history teaches what happens when you throw money at a problem where lack of money is not the problem. America is apparently not of a mind to learn that lesson. Italy goes to the polls this weekend. A grim situation awaits the winner. A description of ‘the tipping point’ where a country’s debt simply becomes too onerous to pay down. The U.S. has reached – and surpassed – that point. Expect Big Trouble dead ahead

 Wake Up Call - Unconscionable Intrusions - 02/18/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Unconscionable Intrusions Not content with saddling the country with unfathomable levels of debt for generations to come, the goons are riding roughshod over your rights – with the silent assent of the populace. As with the debt situation, there’s no going back. The “authorities” have taken on more power than it is now possible to confront. The only remaining choice is escape. Things should never have been allowed to get to this point but they did. And the consequences can no longer be avoided. A 5-year-old girl labeled a terrorist threat – armed with a bubble gun! People have learned nothing from the housing melt-down. The number of those with “very high risk exposure” didn’t decline between 2007 and 2010. It’s growth just slowed to a crawl. It’s accelerating once again

 Wake Up Call - On The Edge - 02/15/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:55:26

We are truly running out of time. Please make your arrangements to leave the U.S. The clouds are gathering. The encroaching police state gathers strength by the week now. You cannot depend on any statistical information anymore. It is all lies or bent unrecognizably out of shape. Information is entirely fabricated for you to digest. All you can do is look for the exits. Listen to the President of Iceland explain why his country did not rescue the banks and how they allowed the system to reset of its own accord and how they now have 3% GDP growth and 5% unemployment. How likely is it that the United States or Europe will sit up and listen?

 Running Out Of Time - 02/11/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

The foolish mumbo jumbo that emanates from government and media organs just serves to deaden people to the horror of what they are about to experience. There is very little time to prepare now for the ultimate downturn. The constant ranting about the “recovery” and the improvement in employment is cruelty of the first order. David Stockman talking about the inevitability of a catastrophe dead ahead. More on why there can be no recovery. Inflating asset bubbles to create phantom collateral cannot work

 Up, Up And Away Or Photoshopped Recovery? - 02/08/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

If the Wake-Up Call means anything at all today, it is a heartfelt plea for all of you to ignore the wretched government and its cronies in the media and business trying to convince you that all is well. IT IS NOT. Do not do anything foolish. Do not buy anything you don’t absolutely need. Do not take out any loans. Repay whatever you can. Sell your real estate and leave! These people are your enemies, not your friends. They need your money to prop themselves up. Don’t let it happen and please spread the word. Most of today’s show is a detailed description of the tricks they’re up to and the traps they’ve set and what you need to avoid. Also a couple of clips of Nigel Farage, as usual

 “Law And Order” Cracking down Everywhere - 02/04/13 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Recently discovered documents show that police, DHS, FBI-initiated crackdowns against peaceful protesters were coordinated with the banks. Hedge funds and other investors now piling into the stock market. Derivatives exposure at record highs (Goldman Sachs’s exposure is more than 362 times its total assets). So-called spending cuts proposed by Washington are no such thing: they are simply reductions from future increases in spending. The story of a 70-year-old glider pilot arrested on false charges. The death of malls in America. Europe sinking fast
