Bill Bonner’s Week

Gender Identity, Politics, and War   Maria Bonaventura Feb. 23, 2020   Making his way from the coast of Nicaragua to the Yucatán and back again, our editor casts his eyes back to his homeland. From gender identity… to politics… to war… he leaves no stone unturned as he continues the mission he set on last week: to find out where America went wrong at the turn of the century. Regards, Maria Bonaventura Managing Editor, Bill Bonner’s Diary   The Last Honest President In honor of President’s Day, Bill reminds us about a forgotten leader: America’s 29th president, Warren G. Harding. Where others might have meddled, Harding did the right thing. He let nature run its course… and went out to play poker… Assigned Democrat at Birth Down in Nicaragua, our editor dedicates a chapel to the local community. But over at the bar, the conversation devolves from sacred matters… to gender identity and politics… Sun, Sand, Relaxed Beachfront Charm American retirees are moving to Mexico’s east coast in droves. It’s tropical, cheaper, and safe from the government’s numerous disappointments (for now). On Wednesday, Bill goes down to Cancún, where “Americans can live well on Social Security alone”… Lions Led by Jackasses Thursday’s subject is war. For most Americans, suggests our editor, the military sits on the highest ground of all the agencies in the swampy Deep State bayous. Still,...

Bill Bonner’s World Ended

The Day the World Ended   Maria Bonaventura Jan. 26, 2020   On September 17, 2019, the money world as we know it came to an end… Our editor breaks down the intricacies in Wednesday’s Diary, “There’s More Than One Way to Go Broke.” And he turns to the past – specifically, the inflation-ridden 1970s – to give us a glimpse of what’s to come… Our Rude Return to America After spending time in Europe, Bill reflects on his harsh re-entry to American life. As he points out, America had two choices at the end of the 20th century: politics or markets. She chose politics, and now we’re paying the price… The Greatest Financial Train Wreck the World Has Ever Seen Donald J. Trump paraded around the Davos summit, claiming a “spectacular” American economy… but your editor knows better. Two mistakes – turning away from the gold standard in 1971 and instituting “repo madness” in 2019 – were lauded as necessary… but weren’t the “right thing” to do… There’s More Than One Way to Go Broke Bill calls September 17, 2019 “the day the world ended.” And on Wednesday, he explains why. Thanks to the Fed, a spike in the repo market forever changed the landscape of America’s economy. The world will go on, of course, but it will never be the same… How America Gave in to Its Two...

F**ked

Why Everything Is F**ked   Caitling Johnstone Dec. 22, 2019   We all slid out of the womb an itty bitty helpless information sponge into a world full of mentally ill giants who couldn’t wait to fill our tiny skulls with all of their inner demons. And now everything, understandably, is fucked. That’s basically our whole entire situation in a nutshell.   You can add on as many extra details as you like — plutocracy, corruption, mass media propaganda, billionaire wine cave fundraisers, whatever — but ultimately our plight is due to the fact that every single human showed up on this planet completely helpless and knowing nothing, forced to trust crazy giants to give them the grand introductory tour. Why were those giants crazy? Well you see, they got here the same way you did: small, slippery and completely clueless, surrounded by enormous gibbering lunatics who were all in a mad rush to teach them how to be insane. And those giants came into the world under the exact same circumstances, as did the giants who came before them, and the giants who came before them, and so on. It’s a grand old tradition of ours, ultimately stretching all the way back to our own evolutionary birth in this world and the emergence of a massive cerebral cortex in a mammal who up until that point had been primarily...

USAmerica : Lonely, Miserable, Depressed

The Legacy Of A Society That Has Rejected Family, Faith And Patriotism   Michael Snyder Dec. 10, 2019   What in the world has happened to us? Once upon a time, [US]America was made up of tightly-knit communities that were united by family, faith and patriotism, but now we are more isolated than ever before. Of course one of the biggest reasons for this is the fact that we are all spending countless hours staring at screens instead of interacting with real people, and this is something that I covered in a previous article. However, our fundamental beliefs are also significantly shaping how we behave. For the past couple of generations, we have de-emphasized family, faith and patriotism as a nation, and instead we have become an extremely “me-centered” society that is primarily focused on doing whatever makes ourselves happy in the moment. But this single-minded pursuit of individual happiness has resulted in much of the country being perpetually mired in loneliness, depression and/or addiction. When you look at the numbers, they truly are startling. For example, a recent survey that was conducted by Cigna found that almost half of all [US]Americans feel lonely… Nearly half of [US]Americans are lonely, according to a survey of 20,000 people across [US]America by Cigna, which used the well-regarded UCLA Loneliness Scale to measure responses. Indeed 46% said they sometimes or always feel alone...

Situação Internacional   João da Silveira     Seg. 2 BOLSONARO :  TRUMP E XI : Quem socorreu Bolsonaro não foi Trump, foi Xi Jinping  (Rubens Ricupero com Sérgio Lírio)….   RÚSSIA :  SEU FUTURO SOB ESTÍMULOS DE USAMÉRICA : Sem estímulo nada se faz na vida. Os russos ão de ser eternamente gratos aos usamericanos por eles tentarem afastar sob vara a empresa Gazprom do mercado europeu. Gazpron reagiu ao estímulo ou desconforto da vara usamericana e aumentou significativamente sua penetração no mercado europeu e no asiático. Os russos agradecem! (Rostislav Ishchenko)…  Eu sou de opinião que os Estados Unidos deveriam estimular mais o Brasil. Ainda há pouco, Donald Trump declarou que vai taxar o aço e o alumínio do Brasil e da Argentina. Essa taxação é sem dúvida um bom estímulo, mas é ainda muito pouco. Trump poderia fazer com o Brasil o que ele está fazendo com a Venezuela, com a Rússia, com a China, com o Irã, com a Turquia, com a NATO-OTAN, com a União Europeia….   Ter. 3   Qua. 4   Qui. 5   Sex. 6   Sáb. 7   Dom. 8...
