Three Lessons From the Past Two Decades   Maria Bonaventura Sep. 8, 2019   Last week, our editor left us with this thought: Nobody knows anything. Turning back to that theme this week, Bill unpacks the three lessons he’s learned over the past 20 years writing the Diary… and connecting the dots of the economy along with Dear Readers. You won’t find these insights in company reports, analyst ratios, or on the internet. But what they reveal could change the way you look at the economy… and the world…   Why Stop at the Stock Market? Rig the Labor Market, Too On Labor Day, our editor reveals the problem with a one-size-fits-all national wage. And he proposes a “fairer” way to solve income inequality in America. But as Bill says, his proposition is just a starting point… How Win-Win Deals Make the World a Richer Place In an exclusive excerpt from his latest book, Bill reveals an insight about win-win and win-lose deals that couldn’t be more relevant now, as tensions between the U.S. and China ramp up… Those Who “Get It” Best Get It Good and Hard Turning back to a mission Bill set on last week, our editor summarizes all he’s learned about the economy since he first started writing Diary 20 years ago.

Kissinger’s Adoration of the 1815 Congress of Vienna

A Master Key into Universal History   Matthew Ehret Sep. 6, 2019   The incredibly shrinking Henry Kissinger is known for many things, but a revolutionary is not one of them. Over the years of service to the empire, the career geopolitician has been consistent in his unfailing commitment to 1) destroy the Westphalian system of sovereign nation states, 2) promote population control across the developing sector, 3) advocate limited nuclear war (in opposition to the more popular visions of total nuclear war advocated by Cold Warriors) and 4) selectively overthrow troublesome governments as a co-architect of color revolutions. The unifying theme throughout has been Kissinger’s total commitment to stability. No matter what chaotic means chosen to advance his agenda, you can be sure that Kissinger does it all for a near religious commitment to “order” and stability. Although too often overlooked, Henry Kissinger’s 1st published work in 1957 A World Restored: Metternich, Castlereagh and the Problems of Peace 1812-1822, offers us the greatest insight into the broader historical forces which young Kissinger understood and which won him entry into the most trusted inner echelons of the oligarchy. It also offers us a sort of master key into unravelling some major historical paradoxes that will assist us in making great sense out of our present age plagued by color revolution and war. In previous articles, I advanced several concepts...

USAmerica Loses Asia-Pacific

Full Spectrum Dominance Continues to Fail   Matthew Ehret Sep. 2, 2019   Always working a little harder than most to stay a step below reality, US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper made especially candid remarks this week that America’s INF pullout was timed for a targeting of forces against China. Speaking to Fox on August 21st, Esper said: “We want to make sure that we, as we need to, have the capability to deter Chinese bad behavior… China is the number one priority for this department. It’s outlined in the national defense strategy, why we think it’s a long term strategic competitor and one that is pursuing a maximization campaign, if you will, throughout the indo-Pacific theater, whether its politically, economically or militarily…” Echoing a little Dr. Strangelove, Esper stated that there is “a coming shift” from “low intensity conflict that lasts 18 years to high intensity conflicts against competitors such as Russia and China.” While American military exercises in the Pacific have played out on China’s doorstep at an accelerating rate since the Pivot to Asia was announced in 2011 with the most recent US-Australia Talisman Sabre bi-annual exercise and US-South Korea Ulchi Freedom war games this month, China has not remained idle. In response to America’s vast array of military infrastructure built up on China’s border, China has responded by the unveiling of cutting edge anti-ballistic...

Russia And the West

How the West Won the Cold War but Lost the Peace   Richard E. Carroll Sep. 1, 2019   The current conflict between the West and Russia, which has pushed Russia into the waiting arms of China began due to the arrogance and short sightedness of the West. At the tail end of the Cold War, West Germany and East Germany wanted to reunite. The then Soviet Union (now Russia) would need to give its permission before this happened in accordance with the 1975 Helsinki Accords. On February 9, 1990 then-Secretary of State James Baker suggested to the Soviet leaders that in return for allowing West Germany and East Germany to reunite after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and allowing a reunited Germany to remain in NATO, that NATO would not move 1 inch eastward towards the then border of the Soviet Union. While no written guarantee was provided to the Russian leaders, less than a week later, Premier Mikhail Gorbachev agreed to allow reunification talks to begin between West Germany and East Germany. Then, less than 1 month later in March of 1990, the U.S. began planning to organize Eastern Europe into a sphere of U.S. influence and expanding NATO to the very borders of the Soviet Union. Despite the promises made by the West, in 1999 NATO agreed to the admission of Poland, Hungary, and the...

New World Order in Meltdown

Russia Stronger Than Ever   Jon Helevig Aug. 30, 2019   Last week was full of portentous events. Only somebody who has not been awake for the last few years will fail to realize how these at first sight unconnected events are part of the same matrix. There was the ever louder talk in mainstream media about an approaching global recession, inverted yield curves and the negative yields, which tell us that the Western financial system is basically in coma and kept alive only by generous IV injections of central bank liquidity. By now it has dawned on people that the central bankers acting as central planners in a command economy and printing money (aka quantitative easing) to fuel asset bubbles are about to wipe off the last vestiges of what used to be a market economy. Then we saw Trump taking new twitter swipes at China in his on-and-off “great trade deal” and the stock markets moving like a roller coaster in reaction to each new twitter salvo. Also, we had both Trump and Macron sweet talking about getting Russia back and again renaming their club G8. Last Tuesday at a G7 presser in Biarritz, the Rothschild groomed Macron took it one step further opening up about the reasons why they all of a sudden longed for friendship with Russia: “We are living the end of Western hegemony.”...
