Canaries In Extremis, by Robert Gore

Most people’s strongest memory of the last financial crisis was the September 2008 bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers. However, thirteen months prior to that, August 2007, two Bear Stearns’ mortgage hedge funds went bankrupt. That was the bell tolling for the housing market, the mortgage securities market, and—because of the leverage and the interconnections—the global financial system itself. The Dow Jones Industrial Average would not make its high for another couple of months, but for those who knew what they were looking for, the Bear Stearns’ bankruptcies signaled the impending reversal in financial markets and the economy.

Sometimes one has to see the big picture, and sometimes looking at a host of smaller pictures is more worthwhile. While housing and mortgage finance were the epicenters of the last crisis, there will probably be no single identifiable catalyst for the next one. Not because there are no central-bank sponsored debt-driven bubbles out…

The Kakistocracy

Historians will likely struggle to find analogies for the Italian shuttle service now operating off the coast of North Africa. It would be unlikely enough for an invaded people to offer such meticulous care to their antagonists that they would safely tow them back to their point of origin. Though to actively ferry them to Europe while only feet from the Maghreb is a thing that would grant Gibbon the grist for many additional chapters in his decline and fall series.

And historians wouldn’t be the only ones flummoxed by this behavior. While he has remained admirably stoic, one presumes that Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi must be livid at his comparatively shabby treatment by the Europeans at Tours. That he even had to manage his own logistics train without the aid of Soros-backed NGOs was insolence enough.

Though returning to the present…while observers could easily be dazzled by the sight…

Fred Reed sees disaster no matter who wins the election. From Reed on a guest post at

More fun in the Indispensable Nation: As we have all heard by now, according to Hillary, ardent of becoming National Basilisk, half of Trump’s supporters are evil and the other half losers, deplorables all. That is, she holds half of Americans in contempt. Unsurprisingly she said this in New York, which is barely America, and to a convention of sexual curiosities.

I frankly think her admirable. As she coughs, staggers, convulses, lies, pilfers, sells favors and lapses into intermittent confusion, she still has the courage to tell America that she loathes half of it. That´s candor.

Give her credit for consistency. She is always mendacious, firmly in the pockets of Wall Street, Israel, the Neocon hawks, and the arms industry, never having accomplished anything on her own, always riding Bill’s coattails, having…

“The Afghan army is useless and the police are corrupt…So what does McChrystal propose? More useless troops and corrupt police. It’s a counter-intuitive solution…It’s all fine on paper, but that doesn’t translate into success on the ground.”

-Dan Plesch, Director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at the School of Oriental and African Studies.

Counter insurgency (COIN), has largely been the method by which the American Empire has intervened in the Middle East post-2001 and spreading…democracy. It pains me to hear that phrase, simply because it papers over the fact we are invading a sovereign country and represents a singular level of jingoism about America. If we spent half as much time and treasure on our own government rather than meddling in other nations’, perhaps a Clinton/Trump election and $20T in debt would not be staring us in the face. The empire always comes home, and I believe…

Bracken: What I Saw At The Coup

Posted: October 21, 2016 by gamegetterII in Uncategorized

Western Rifle Shooters Association

Short-fuse fiction by Matt Bracken intended to spread alarm among progressives, in the spirit of dispiriting them from ever attempting such a mad folly in order to cling to power. Matt Bracken is the author of the Enemies Foreign And Domestic trilogy, and Castigo Cay.


This is the first time in many years that I have put pen to paper for a lengthy letter, so please forgive my misspellings, poor handwriting or any other errors. I will probably do this in one go and be finished with it. I won’t need much of this new notebook. It’s a nice room, desk and chair, but really, no computer? I just wish they would stop the hammering outside. I need to focus in order to write well.

No one person could possibly expect to know the full truth about such a complex history, so near to its time. But…

Coming Soon: CommRadio CTX-10

Posted: October 20, 2016 by gamegetterII in Uncategorized



It’s a great time to be into Survivalist Communications. It’s a great time to be into Survivalism, period. Sure, the world sucks. We’re on track to reignite the Cold War. The flames keep being fanned higher and higher here at home. The economy is borderline insane. Yep, all that.

And yet, the technology out there is advancing by leaps and bounds. 3D printers and rapid decline in the price of CNC machines has led to the world’s truly open-source weapon, the AR-15. Computers are smaller and more powerful than ever before. The access to information has never been easier. And radio has never been better.

QRP HF used to only have a handful of options- Ten-Tec was the leader- but even then it was limited to a couple bands and kinda tough to run in the field.  Yaesu brought out the 817 and with it, revolutionized what a ‘field day’…

WIKILEAKS: ThinkProgress Trashes A Climate Expert’s Career To Appease A Hillary Donor

Posted By Michael Bastasch (Daily Caller)

ThinkProgress Editor in Chief Judd Legum sent an email to a billionaire donor bragging how the liberal blog’s environmental writer targeted a climate researcher who challenged a major Democratic talking point on global warming, according to leaked emails.

The blog’s environmental arm, ClimateProgress, (run by Dr. Joe Romm) took issue with pollster Nate Silver’s 538 website, hiring Dr. Roger Pielke, Jr. to write about global warming issues. Pielke is no skeptic of man-made warming, but he challenged a Democratic talking point that global warming was making extreme weather more severe.

Romm YouTube Image Dr. Joe Romm of Climate Progress believes we are going to fry.

ClimateProgress immediately embarked on a crusade to discredit him “[p]rior to Pielke writing anything” for 538 — based solely on the fact they didn’t like his research on extreme weather.

Outlander Systems


The state-run media are currently in meltdown mode over the “audacious” allegation that there’s anything resembling shenanigandery in the election process in the U.S.

What I personally find most, ahem, Deplorable, about the utterly petulant reaction of the social-engineers at ABCNNBCBS, is the suggestion that our democratic election process is as pure as the driven snow, and the manifestation of God’s little cherubs descend from on high to ensure the sanctity of elections every four years.

Get. Fucking. Real.

The assertion of malfeasance goes far beyond the tomfoolery listed later.

As I wrote previously in, Operation Votescam:

“The need to resort to cheap parlor tricks like vote-rigging through Liebold machines is amateur hour. It is far more efficient, and far more Huxleyan, to use the soft-dictatorship of manipulation, whereby the participant is coerced into erroneously assuming that he or she has made a conscious decision through self-determination. Remember, the…
