100 Years of Humiliation & Unintentional Self-Parody

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert bring alternative news in the form of the Keiser Report to the world on a regular basis. Max is both funny and enlightened and they are willing to present the news that the Main Stream Media refuses to bring.

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss 100 years of humiliation and unintentional self-parody as one empire goes and another, perhaps, rises again. In the second half, Max interviews Dr. Michael Hudson of michael-hudson.com to discuss the Democratic party in an era of dodgy dossiers and no economic policies.

Finding Gems & Sharing Them: Still having the wrong conversation — Cut the spending!

 

More laws and more taxes —

that’ll solve the problem = NOT!

Think CUT SPENDING…

Earlier this year, I did a post on this topic and it seems to deserve a repeat because we are still not having the right conversation!  From February 2017 (here and below)

 

Color me livid.  We have lost before we even get started if we don’t correct this matter.  

Let me see if I can show you  how this game actually works.

Insurance Companies’ Very Bad Week

Last week President Trump issued an executive order rolling back President Obama’s executive order to subsidize insurance companies.  The subsidies reimburse the companies for reducing certain out-of-pocket expenses to policy holders. The only problem is Congress refused to appropriate money for the subsidies. So Obama whipped out his pen and phone and and started spending

R3publicans: How The Elite Dominate The World – Part 1: Debt As A Tool Of Enslavement

BY IWB · OCTOBER 15, 2017

By Michael Snyder

Throughout human history, those in the ruling class have found various ways to force those under them to work for their economic benefit. But in our day and age, we are willingly enslaving ourselves. The borrower is the servant of the lender, and there has never been more debt in our world than there is right now. According to the Institute of International Finance, global debt has hit the 217 trillion dollar mark, although other estimates would put this number far higher. Of course everyone knows that our planet is drowning in debt, but most people never stop to consider who owns all of this debt. This unprecedented debt bubble represents that greatest transfer of wealth in human history, and those that are being enriched are the extremely wealthy elitists at the very, very top of the food chain.

R3publicans: The Federal Reserve is setting America up for economic disaster

By Armstrong Williams, opinion contributor — 09/18/17

I recently had the opportunity to read the ‘Creature from Jekyll’ Island by G. Edward Griffin, a prodigious tome dealing with the circumstances surrounding the creation of the U.S. Federal Reserve system. I was taken aback by some of its provocative assertions.

  • America joined World War I largely to help a few bankers profit off the war (despite a long-standing Monroe doctrine that prohibited our involvement in European affairs)
  • The Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 was supported by international financial interests in order to destabilize Russia and steal the wealth of the Russian people; and
  • So-called ‘foreign aid’ is merely a clever means of shifting the bad debt incurred by banks and wealthy financiers to American taxpayers.

There are certain things one doesn’t ask in polite elite society. Lucky for you you’re nowhere near there. You’re in Bokbluster, so I’ll ask: Is it possible, on average, that girls don’t like math as much as boys? It’s possible, on average. Unless you’re Larry Summers, the former president of Harvard. Is it possible, on
