Nancy Pelosi Run Off Stage at Press Conference, 1795 The Still Report

- Nobel Gold & Silver: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Or Call - 888-596-7916 Good morning, Im still reporting on: Nancy Pelosi Run Off Stage at Press Conference, 1795 Synopsis: Yesterday in San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi was shouted down by the very dreamers she was there to have a press conference about urging passage of the Dream Act to protect the children of illegals from deportation. About 60 so-called Dreamers mounted the stage shouting, All of us or none of us, and Democrats deport. The raucous group managed to shout down all attempts to proceed with the carefully orchestrated event. After an hour of noisy chanting and speech-making on the part of the Dreamers, Pelosi and two Democrat colleagues gave up and left the venue through a back door. This demonstrates yet another step in the decline of civility in the democratic process only this time, it is being used against Democrats, instead by them against supporters of President Trump. Democrats have been crushing these American political traditions for several years now and this is the end result. Now new socialists, yearning to get their young faces on the nightly news are angling to replace the old socialists and modeling their bad behavior. Unless Democrats take an about face and start moving back towards bi-partisan governance and treating, yes, even Trump supporters with respect, the bonds of comity that have bound the Republic together will only disintegrate at an ever-faster pace fracturing the nation. This is exactly what our enemies want. And, unfortunately, our enemies are now amongst us. Democrats need to heed the lessons of history - just as in the French Revolution when the Republic descends into thuggery, the thugs will come for the Democrats first.

The Virus Of Religion: An Ancient War On Human Consciousness The Event Chronicle

By Karlos Kukuburra

So you thought you wanted enlightenment? Thought that life would be all peachy and smooth sailing when the veils of illusion were lifted? Those who have become dis-illusioned and havent slid back into denial after seeing what was on the other side, or run in the opposite direction with their first taste of enlightenment realize that waking up is hard work!

So what is behind these veils of constructed reality, one might ask? To put it in succinct terms, what lies behind the social conditioning is this: That our society is the product of an extraterrestrial race that moves and breathes and even breeds beneath the surface of all of human history.

Its much easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled such is the nature of confirmation bias and other psychological tools of manipulation. Breaking free of the ancient, historical constant of mind control is an ongoing process of waking up out of a state of denial. Spiritual emergence and awakening involves a physiological break from the consensus social agreements of our planetary cultures.

The realization that you have been fooled beyond belief can cause a great deal of inner turmoil to arise: utter dismay, a sense of humiliation, and a resulting backlash from friends and family who continually (and unconsciously) attempt to pull you back in line with the accepted mainstream groupthink. In this process of breaking free from the enslavement of human consciousness, if you dont have days where you completely question your sanity, I would suggest that you arent really waking up. Here is the only piece of advice that reflects the truth of this process: Get used to it!

There is no use asking agents of the Matrix to validate the truth of your awakening, for you will only end up being diagnosed and medicated. You are simply becoming sane in an insane world. Now, more than ever, it is time for those who have already lifted these veils of deception to assist others who need the survival band-aid ripped off quickly. A considerably-revised history lesson with regards to our true human origins is in order for the majority of humanity. Access the information, educate yourself, grab the sword of truth, and start swinging.

We must be willing to take a very direct look at what factors are inhibiting and obstructing our ability to see how the currently-implemented planetary paradigm has emerged from a history of violence...

The Broken Budget Process Should Be Refocused on Long-Term Planning Concord Coalition

The Broken Budget Process Should Be Refocused on Long-Term Planning ahunt Thu, 09/21/2017 - 10:42

A Series

25 Fiscal Lessons

Learned over the course of 25 years, paving the way toward a better economic future.

Read the Lessons

The official federal budget process was established in 1974 by the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act. In practice, the process prescribed by the law has never been followed to the letter, and in recent years its been abandoned almost entirely. The broken budget process has resulted in policymakers applying quick fixes to avert artificial crises such as government shutdowns instead of making strategic long-term decisions.

After the president has submitted his proposed budget each year, the first step for Congress is to draft and adopt a concurrent budget resolution. If adopted by a majority vote in both chambers, the budget sets instructions that guide Congress in spending and taxing decisions throughout the year. The resolution establishes how much revenue needs to be raised and how much should be spent overall, but congressional committees determine how those targets will be met.

This step has been the most neglected part of the budget process over the past 25 years. During that period, only four budget resolutions were passed on time. And in six of the past eight years, Congress failed to pass a budget resolution at all.

Congress is also supposed to enact 12 annual appropriations bills that, with the presidents signature, fund discretionary spending programs for both national defense and domestic areas such as law enforcement, the judicial system, envi...

Dental Surgeon Explains What Negative Emotions Could Do To Human Salivary Proteins & Teeth/Mouth The Event Chronicle

By Arjun Walia

A number of scientists around the world are publishing studies, and examining what can happen to our biology when we experience physiological coherence, or heart coherence. Physiological coherence refers to the biological state the human body experiences when the heart and brain are well-coordinated, working in synchronicity,  and united by our positive emotional health, which results in the increased synchronization, harmony, and efficiency in the interactions within and among the physiological, cognitive, and emotional systems in the body.

Perhaps the leading scientists in the field are the ones over at the HeartMath Institute, whose research findings have shown that when we practice heart coherence, and take on more feelings of gratitude, compassion, appreciation and love, our heart generates a coherent electromagnetic wave into the local field environment that facilitates social coherence. This means that our electromagnetic field could carry biological relevant information that can effect those around us. Proponents in this field have shown that, theoretically, it is possible that enough people building individual and social coherence could actually contribute to an unfolding global coherence.

Not only that, and the main point here, is that a state of coherence can cause nervous system chaos, and the opposite can have a positive effect. Their research has shown that when we experience negative emotion, the heart sends very different signals to the brain as opposed to experiencing positive emotions. In turn, this influences our nervous system.

Dr. Deborah Rozman, the President of Quantum Intech, explains that its an alignment within and amongst systems whether quantum particle, organisms, human beings, social groups, planets or galaxies. This harmonious order signifies a coherent system whose optimal functioning is directly related to the ease and flow in its processes....

7 Crucial Signs Your Body Is Lacking Vitamin B12 The Event Chronicle

By Peace Quarters

A vitamin B12 deficiency is way more common than you think. It can impact people in just about any age range but is most common in women between 40 and 60 years old. But just because you dont fall into that category doesnt mean you dont need more B12 in your life, being a vegan or vegetarian can also put you at risk for a deficiency.

First, lets look at why B12 is so important. Its actually one of the key components in your bodys ability to make red blood cells. It also plays a role in nerve development and can impact DNA. So, a lack of B12 in your body can come with symptoms you shouldnt ignore.

1. LIGHT HEADEDNESS

If you find yourself feeling lightheaded on a regular basis, then it might be a cause for concern. Being a bit dizzy from time to time is easy to dismiss, but if you think you are suffering from being off balance almost day to day, then thats a red flag for a B12 deficiency.

2. NUMBNESS

Its OK and natural to have a hand or leg fall asleep on occasion, especially if say youve been sitting on your foot. But if you fill that pins and needles sensation without the compression of that body part, that a sign you may need more B12. Some people have also described the feeling of an electric jolt that comes in waves. Those sensations are actually the result of nerve damage brought on by a lack of B12.

3. PALE SKIN

Since B12 helps produce red blood cells, the less of those you have in your body, the paler you may become. Alabaster skin is OK if thats been your natural tone since birth but a sudden onset of paleness could be due to the lack of red blood cells in your body.

4. SCATTERBRAINED

Ever walk into a room and forget why you were heading in there? Or text a friend only to discover you forgot why? Little bouts of forgetfulness are common, but if its starting to impact your life, it might be time to talk to your doctor. Being a constant scatter-brain is a possible indication of a B12 deficiency.

5. BEING OVERLY TIRED

If youre keeping a normal sleep schedule but still cant get through the day without feeling completely run down, it might be time to take a closer look at your B12 levels. Chronic fatigue is a symptom of a lack of vitamin B12. The less red blood cells you have in circulation means less oxygen and less O2 can leave you feeling exhausted on a r...

Mind Hack How Corporations Took Over Our Bodies and Brains The Event Chronicle

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

The science is in: Processed food is addictive, can make you extremely unhappy and will prematurely kill you. How did this happen? And how have food manufacturers been able to deceive the world about these facts? Dr. Robert Lustig has written a new book, The Hacking of the American Mind: The Science Behind the Corporate Takeover of Our Bodies and Brains, in which he explains how and why this occurred.

He is perhaps most well-known for his brilliant research into sugar and obesity, and his previous book, Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity and Disease, was a New York Times Best Seller. Lustig is an emeritus professor of pediatrics in the division of endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco, and a member of the Institute for Health Policy Studies. Since the last time I interviewed him, hes also completed a masters in public health law.

The Genesis of Hacking of the American Mind

The motivation for The Hacking of the American Mind began some 30 years ago, while still a postdoctoral fellow in neuroscience at Rockefeller University. There, he learned about the interaction between dopamine and serotonin in the brain. At the time, only basic correlational data existed, but there appeared to be a very specific interaction going on between these two neurochemicals.

As I was researching the data for Fat Chance, four years ago, it became very clear that the data had come in on the role of diet and behavioral health, Lustig says. In addition, we also now had neuroimaging studies. I realized everything was falling into place that this issue, dopamine and serotonin, was actually at the core of what had now become our depression and opiate crises.

At the same time, I was giving Psychiatry Grand Rounds at a U.S. medical school in 2014. The woman who ran their outpatient treatment program took me on a tour of their facility. She was a recovered addict herself. She said something to me that was so jarring. She said, When I was shooting up, I was happy. What my new life has brought me is pleasure.

Gold Investment Compelling As Fed May Kill The Business Cycle Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert

Gold Investment Compelling As Fed Likely To Create Next Recession

Is the Fed about to kill the business cycle?
16 out of 19 rate-hike cycles in past 100 years ended in recession
 Total global debt at all time high see chart
Global debt is 327% of world GDP ticking timebomb
 Gold has beaten the market (S&P 500) so far this century
Safe haven demand to increase on debt and equity risk
 Gold looks very cheap compared to overbought markets
Important to diversify into safe haven gold now

by Frank Holmes via Gold.org

Global debt levels have reached unprecedented levels, pension deficits are rising and the US interest rate cycle is on the turn. Frank Holmes, chief executive of highly regarded investment management group US Global Investors, believes that investing in gold is a logical response to current, unnerving conditions.

For centuries, investors and savers have depended on gold in times of economic and political strife, and its investment case right now is as compelling as its ever been.

As I write this, gold is trading above US$1,330 an ounce after a strong rally that took the metal to its highest levels since August 2016. Tensions over North Korea, a weakening US dollar, political uncertainty in Washington, an overvalued US stock market, surging public and private debt and negative interest rates around the world have all boosted demand for gold as a reliable and time-tested store of value.

I often refer to this as the Fear Trade. For centuries, investors and savers have depended on gold in times of economic and political strife, and its investment case right now is as compelling as its ever been.

Lets look at debt for the moment. Most market-watchers are aware that US government debt currently stands at just under US$20 trillion, an unfathomably large figure that will only continue to climb as the interest compounds.

This 1-Acre Permaculture Farm in Australia Can Feed 50 Families The Event Chronicle

By Amanda Froelich

By 2050, the worlds human population is expected to reach 9.7 billion. Considering 795 million people still go to bed hungry each evening, this is concerning. Fortunately, sustainable solutions exist, and they include vertical gardening and permaculture farming  among others. The latter has been employed on a one-acre farm in Australia and reportedly works so well, enough produce is grown to feed 50 families.

The Limestone Permaculture Farm may be minute in size, but it produces enough produce to feed dozens of families. Started when wife Nici developed an illness, the farm now educates the local community about permaculture and even offers internships.

TreeHugger reports that the Coopers have been farming for close to a decade. At Limestone Permaculture Farm, they grow organic produce, raise sheep goats and chickens, keep bees, and even build with recycled materials. Much of the farm is powered by energy from wood, water, and the sun.

The premise of permaculture is to mimic the social design principles observed in natural ecosystems. Opposite of large-scale mono-cropping (growing one crop at a time), permaculture farming creates symbiosis so a variety of plants may thrive. Some of the permaculture principles implemented by the Coopers include swales, a chicken tractor and even self-seeding edible ground cover.

Reportedly, husband Brett discovered permaculture over a decade ago. He told the Newcastle Herald,

In our modern age, all of us have been touched in one way or another by mental illness, either directly or indirectly. Depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, and an ever growing list of psychotic disorders and addictions are today rampant in our modern industrialised world. Most likely a direct result of our keeping up with the Kardashians lifestyle and ultra competitive, capitalist greed is good world.

Whilst we may never be able to go back to more simpler times, what we can do is learn from the societies who still live a simpler life. Especially in the area of mental health, where we enter the mystical realm of the Shaman and shamanic plant medicine.

After the false start of the 1950s1970s psychedelic research, today cutting edge science has learned from the mistakes of the past and is once more entering the realm of the Shaman, this time (by necessity) in a far more measured and scientific way. The results of which will not only save lives, but show us a way that all of us can live happier, less stressful and healthier lives.

It is repeated time and again in the science of anthropology that indigenous societies with little to no contact with modern civilisation simply do not have the same mental health issues that we do in our modern world.

Psychiatrist E. Fuller Torrey, who conducted research in New Guinea, described it as an unusually good country in which to do epidemiologic research because census records for even most remote villages are remarkably good. After examining these records, he found, there was over a twentyfold difference in schizophrenia prevalence among districts; those with a higher prevalence were, in general, those with the most contact with western civilisation.

In reviewing other research, Torrey concluded: Almost all observers who looked for psychosis or schizophrenia in technologically undeveloped areas of the world agreed that it was uncommon. The striking feature is the remarkable consensus that insanity (in the early studies) and schizophrenia (in later studies) were comparatively uncommon prior to contact with European-American civilisation. Interestingly, in traditional cultures the people we would call schizophrenic or insane often become the Shaman or Medicine men/women that go on to heal and counsel their people.

The reasons for our mental maladies are many (and worthy of an entire article in their own right), but the main reason seems to b...

Google City! Marginal REVOLUTION

Amazon is looking for a city for its new headquarters. Boring! Google is looking to build a city. The FT reports:

Googles parent company was working on a sweeping plan to build a city from the ground up, the executive in charge of its urban innovation business said on Tuesday, in an attempt to prove that a technologically-enabled urban environment can improve quality of life and reduce cities impact on the environment.

We actually want to build a new city, it is a district of the city, but one that is of sufficient size and scale that it can be a laboratory for innovation on an integrated basis, said Dan Doctoroff, head of Sidewalk Labs, at a talk to the San Francisco Bay Area Planning and Urban Research Association.

Sidewalk was quite far along in its search for a city with which to partner to build a testing ground for new approaches to transport, infrastructure and possibly even governance and social policy, he said.

As I said in my NYTimes op-ed on private cities (with Shruti Rajagopolan):

The world is building more cities, faster than ever before. China used more cement in the last three years than the United States used in the entire 20th century. By 2050, India will need new urban infrastructure to house an additional 404 million people  a task comparable to building every city in the United States in just 35 years.

As the world urbanizes, we need to experiment with new urban forms and new forms of urban planning, and privately designed and operated cities proprietary cities like Jamshedpur, India, or Reston, Va., may provide answers.

By the way, Virginias private city, Reston, was just named by Money magazine as one of the best places to live in the United States.

The Anshar are reaching out to more people, through dreams and visions, to help us become ready for face-to-face contact with inner world civilizations. But something is not right with the timeline and the Anshar are making a desperate bit for their survival. With all the turmoil affecting our planets ecosystems, we need to keep in mind that the Earth, herself, is a living being who is making the transition into fourth density and many of us will be riding in her wake of ascension.

Unity and Community: The Two Things the Cabal Fears Most The Event Chronicle

Exploring Where Our Greatest Power Lies

By Shem El-Jamal

Over the centuries, there have been numerous uprisings by the people for the sake of freedom and liberation. We as human beings enjoy our ability to live our own lives and to choose for ourselves what we do and dont experience. However, there are those who do not consider common humanity to be worthy of this freedom.

As history has repeated, populations typically gather in various geographic areas which are ideal for successful society. Eventually, elitists take control of the populations with promises of greater order and protection. This order and protection eventually degrades into excessive control and oppression. After a time of oppression, the population realizes this control, chooses to be free, and eventually overthrows the elitists to regain their freedom.

This is the cycle of societal evolution, or so it would seem. Though the elite have an annoying way of recycling their societal control strategies, this control has been proven to be quite fragile in nature. In fact, it is now well-known that tyrannical governmentsthough they may appear powerfulhave plenty of weaknesses which oppressed people can exploit in order to free themselves from tyranny.

Problem, Reaction, Solution Examining the Details of the Hegelian Dialect and the Many Ways Youve Already Fallen Victim to It

In modern-day societyparticularly in Americathe strategies of liberation are very similar to what they have always been. Some may believe these strategies to involve some type of violence or direct physical opposition. Though some instances in the past have involved these activities, these are not always necessary in efforts of social and societal liberation.

Parasitic Tyranny

In previous articles, I have discussed extensively the nature of parasitic relationships among people and how these relationships can affect individuals and populations. These relationships typically occur between those who have excessive internal strength (who are usually oppressed) and those who have extreme lack of such strength (the oppressors).

For instance, the group known as the Cabal needs a large human population in order to benefit from their debt-based currency known as the petro-dollar. These Cabal exploiters hand out this fraudulent currency by the mil...

Climate Change and The Time of Transition The Event Chronicle

By Bernhard Guenther

We are currently experiencing very intense cosmic and energetic planetary changes that are manifesting themselves in numerous ways. Ive been feeling something brewing or birthing deep within me, building itself up over the past few weeks. Ever since the Solar Eclipse (and especially on the day of it), this feeling has gotten stronger, pulling me deep into myself, and as a result I have a strong desire to be alone and in solitude. Ive been going through a lot of emotional turmoil. Something was pulling me down, with sensations of suffering, sadness, lonelinessfeeling vulnerable and fragile, not being able to do much at allI even took a hiatus from my daily Qi Gong/Yoga practice, as I simply couldnt get into it.

But what I was experiencing was way more than just my stuff (or anything personal) I certainly wouldnt call it a depressionmore like, I was thrown into feeling the collective shadow and suffering of the world.  But even beyond that, I could sense a deeper alchemical process at work. It was transpersonal in nature. It didnt feel wrong, nor was it solely related to occult interference (even though that aspect has been a part of my experience as well, as they play their role during these times), but rather, it felt like a necessary process of making the darkness conscious within, as more of it is collectively coming to light.

In other words, the entire affair was part of a transmutation event building up the vessel so as to anchor into the higher frequencies. I didnt attempt to control this process, or escape it, nor think about itI just sat with it, feeling into itbeing with itsurrendering to itin stillness, letting this storm blow over. I also needed to sleep a great deal, more so than usual. I took naps every day, and slept between eight-to-ten hours every night (whereas normally, seven hours is sufficient) I experienced a lot of dreams as well.

I feel like my body has been recalibrating itself in order to process this influx of cosmic energies, and sleeping a lot has helped with the absorption. So much is happening on unseen levels with regards to our planet and her beings. It feels like there has been a major frequency upgrade (and simultaneous cleansing/purification), which is an event that effects everyone differently.

What Gets You Out of Bed in the Morning? Finding Your Reason for Being The Event Chronicle

Ikigai: Finding your Reason for Being

By Chip Richards

What Gets You Out of Bed in the Morning?

When asked what is the single most powerful contributing factor to ones health and vitality, integrative medical doctor Oscar Serrallach answered without hesitation: having a sense of purpose. Serrallach went on to describe that while some of his patients have developed great regimes of nutrition, lifestyle activities and movement to support their wellbeing; those without a clear sense of purpose in their life experience continuing struggle with physical health issues. The distinguishing quality of many of his healthiest patients  those who  transcend common health challenges despite not having lived by the book, in terms of healthy lifestyle factors is that they seem to be the most aligned or called towards some primary focus of meaning in their life.

Japanese culture actually has a word which addresses this focus. The word is ikigai and translates simply as, reason for being.

What is Your Reason for Being?

According to the Japanese, everyone has an ikigai. To find it often requires deep enquiry and lengthy search of self a search which is highly regarded.

Four primary elements of ikigai

The term ikigai is composed of two Japanese words: iki referring to life, and kai, which roughly means the realisation of what one expects and hopes for. Unpacking the word and its associated symbol a bit further, ikigai is seen as the convergence of four primary elemen...

Government Regulation and Crony Capitalism is Keeping Thousands in Florida without Power Mises Wire

By: Tho Bishop
Yellow_Tape_by_Downed_Power_Lines_(7536146736).jpg

Almost two weeks have passed since Hurricane Irma made landfall in South Florida, yet tens of thousands remain without power. With temperatures regularly eclipsing over 90 degrees, these outages are not only a grave inconvenience for Floridians cleaning up after the storm, but have proved to be deadly. Given the power of Irma, it is not surprising that it has left behind incredible devastation. Unfortunately it is also not surprising that it is a government-protected utility that has done the most to impede recovery. The pain and suffering currently being felt is the direct result of government policy and the perverse incentives of crony capitalism.

One of the talked about examples of how bad policy is making things worse for Florida families are a variety of government policies that discourages the use of solar power in the Sunshine State. Government policy dictates that Floridians are required to be connected to the central power grid, even if they have enough solar panels installed to power their entire house. Because of this requirement, a family stuck in areas without power with solar panels installed cannot use them now because doing so could endanger workers trying to restore power for their neighbors. Once again governments desire for centralized control has unintended consequences.

Of course, even without such rules, its unlikely that all of Florida would decide to go off the grid. Given that, its important to understand how the legal monopoly granted to electric companies not only traps customers into being entirely reliant upon a single company, but actively incentivizes those companies to be reactive rather than proactive when it comes to natural disasters and other events that threaten service.

After all, companies like Florida Power & Light will respond to Irma as they have done to hurricanes past, by increasing prices on their customers.  Unfortunately, the revenue reaped seems to have made little...

If the Majority Votes to Secede What About the Minority? Mises Wire

By: Ryan McMaken
calexit.PNG

In recent years, left-wing groups have often been the driving force behind secession movements. This has been the case in Scotland, in Catalonia, and in California. 

In each case, the secession movements have been initiated in part to forward left-wing goals, such as the creation of a larger welfare state or to escape limitations imposed by political interest groups and institutions deemed to be too right-wing. 

Within the American context, the loudest calls for secession right now are coming from California where leftists are eager to assert their independence from the Trump administration in Washington.

Generally speaking, these California secessionists want single-payer health care, an even larger welfare state, confiscation of private firearms, and an ever larger environmental "protection" bureaucracy. That is, they want a European-style welfare state. 

California as Case Study 

This case presents Americans and especially libertarian-minded Americans with a question that continues to come up in recent years on secession matters: should they support a left-wing secession movement? 

Is it right or moral to support a secession movement that, in the short- and medium- terms is almost guaranteed to adopt policies that are counter to the cause of freedom and free markets? 

The answer must first and foremost be compared against the reality of forcing political union on a separatist region. That is, the cost of allowing a region to separate must be compared to the cost of keeping it in  i.e., military invasion, occupation, mass arrests, government surveillance, martial law, and worse.

Not surprisingly, we're forced to conclude the answer is the same whether we're talking about secession in Scotland, in California, or in Catalonia: the answer is yes.

What About the Minority Interests? 

Often, the immediate retort to this position is to point to those groups in the minority who are left stuck in the seceding territories. 

The argument goes something like this: "Now that you've cut California loose, what about those poor conservatives, gun owners, and business owners who will now be negatively impacted by a newly empowered California government? Before, California was at least somewhat restrained by its membership in the United States. Now the California government is even more free to inflict misery on the hapless taxpayers and productive people who are stuck there." 

To this criticism, there are at least two responses.

Greg Clark visits Australia and finds high rates of status persistence Marginal REVOLUTION

The co-authors on this paper (pdf) are Andrew Leigh and Mike Pottenger, here is the abstract:

The paper estimates long run social mobility in Australia 18702017 tracking the status of rare surnames. The status information includes occupations from electoral rolls 19031980, and records of degrees awarded by Melbourne and Sydney universities 18522017. Status persistence was strong throughout, with an intergenerational correlation of 0.70.8, and no change over time. Notwithstanding egalitarian norms, high immigration and a well-targeted social safety net, Australian long-run social mobility rates are low. Despite evidence on conventional measures that Australia has higher rates of social mobility than the UK or USA (Mendolia and Siminski, 2016), status persistence for surnames is as high as that in England or the USA. Mobility rates are also just as low if we look just at mobility within descendants of UK immigrants, so ethnic effects explain none of the immobility.

Social mobility is indeed difficult to pull off.  Hat tip goes to Ben Southwood.

Accurate genomic prediction of human height Marginal REVOLUTION

They used to say this couldnt be done:

We construct genomic predictors for heritable and extremely complex human quantitative traits (height, heel bone density, and educational attainment) using modern methods in high dimensional statistics (i.e., machine learning). Replication tests show that these predictors capture, respectively, ~40, 20, and 9 percent of total variance for the three traits. For example, predicted heights correlate ~0.65 with actual height; actual heights of most individuals in validation samples are within a few cm of the prediction. The variance captured for height is comparable to the estimated SNP heritability from GCTA (GREML) analysis, and seems to be close to its asymptotic value (i.e., as sample size goes to infinity), suggesting that we have captured most of the heritability for the SNPs used. Thus, our results resolve the common SNP portion of the missing heritability problem i.e., the gap between prediction R-squared and SNP heritability. The ~20k activated SNPs in our height predictor reveal the genetic architecture of human height, at least for common SNPs. Our primary dataset is the UK Biobank cohort, comprised of almost 500k individual genotypes with multiple phenotypes. We also use other datasets and SNPs found in earlier GWAS for out-of-sample validation of our results.

While I dont find within a few centimeters to be especially impressive, the question is still whats next?

Mises, Cosmopolitanism, and the Mises Institute Mises Wire

By: David Gordon
mises_1.PNG

Organizations named for someone often are accused of deviating from that persons ideas, and the Mises Institute unfortunately is no exception. Recently, we have come under attack along the following lines: Ludwig von Mises was a cosmopolitan, opposed to nationalism and racism. Critics claim But the Mises institute, though named after him, has betrayed him. Guided by Murray Rothbard and Lew Rockwell, the Institute has allied with rightwing groups that oppose liberal humanist values. Mises would never have done this.

To assess this accusation, we must first ask, what is meant by cosmopolitan? The word is a translation from a Greek term introduced by Diogenes the Cynic in the 4th century B.C., who said, I am a citizen of the world [kosmopolits] This notion became important in Stoic thought, and readers interested in the Greek idea of the cosmic city will find in Malcolm Schofields The Stoic Idea of the City a valuable guide.

The term often means something else today. Cosmopolitans, in this sense, oppose traditional values. They propose to liberate people from old-fashioned morality .and wish to promote the interests of feminists, homosexuals, and the transgendered, as well as ethnic groups they regard as oppressed. They are multicultural and deplore undue stress on the West, as against other cultures. All peoples and cultures are equal, except of course for the oppressive West.

It is clear that Mises was not a cosmopolitan in this new and extended sense. When Mises in Liberalism talks about cosmopolitanism, he has in mind a fundamental point in his social theory. Everyone benefits through peaceful and cooperative exchange on the free market. With social cooperation through the market, human beings are no longer locked in a struggle in which the gain of some comes at the expense of others. Interference with the free market impedes peaceful cooperation and should be opposed by those who want peace and prosperity.

Misess remarks about nationalism depend on this basic insight. He opposed trade restrictions and other policies like currency devaluation by which one nation tried to gain at the expense of others. As always for Mises, social cooperation through the free market was of primary importance.

Mises and Cosmopolitanism Mises Wire

By: David Gordon
mises_1.PNG

Organizations named for someone often are accused of deviating from that persons ideas, and the Mises Institute unfortunately is no exception. Recently, we have come under attack along the following lines: Ludwig von Mises was a cosmopolitan, opposed to nationalism and racism. "But the Mises institute, though named after him, has betrayed him. Guided by Murray Rothbard and Lew Rockwell, the Institute has opposed liberal humanist values. Mises would never have done this."

To assess this accusation, we must first ask, what is meant by cosmopolitan? The word is a translation from a Greek term introduced by Diogenes the Cynic in the 4th century B.C., who said, I am a citizen of the world [kosmopolits] This notion became important in Stoic thought, and readers interested in the Greek idea of the cosmic city will find in Malcolm Schofields The Stoic Idea of the City a valuable guide.

The term often means something else today. Cosmopolitans, in this sense, oppose traditional values. They propose to liberate people from old-fashioned morality and wish to promote the interests of feminists, homosexuals, and the transgendered, as well as ethnic groups they regard as oppressed. They are multicultural and deplore undue stress on the West, as against other cultures. All peoples and cultures are equal, except of course for the oppressive West. They wish to spread what they call tolerance all over the world, and view customs they oppose as obstacles to be eradicated.

Loving Our Debt-Serfdom: Our Neofeudal Status Quo oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith

Democracy (i.e. political influence) and ownership of productive assets are the exclusive domains of the New Aristocracy.
I have often used the words neoliberal, neocolonial and neofeudal to describe our socio-economic-political status quo. Here are my shorthand descriptions of each term:
1. Neoliberal: the commoditization / financialization of every asset, input (such as labor) and output of the economy; the privatization of the public commons, and the maximizing of private profits while costs and losses are socialized, i.e. transferred to the taxpayers.
2. Neocolonial: the exploitation of the domestic populace using the same debt-servitude model used to subjugate, control and extract profits from overseas populations.
3. Neofeudal: the indenturing of the workforce via debt and financial repression to a new Aristocracy; the ...

Every six months or so these days, Americans have to do something remarkable: beg their government not to take away what little healthcare they have. Why is that? What does it teach us about designing human systems that work? How did American gethere?

Jaw-droppingespecially if youre not American, right? Yet theres a logichowever absurdto it. Its a case of income maximization gone extreme. Repealing healthcare will maximize incomes for healthcare providers, Congressmen, lobbyists, pharmaceutical companies. And repealing healthcare will maximize incomes for households, by lowering taxes. Never mind that it shrinks life expectancy, which is to say: never mind the long-term benefits of such investmentsin this paradigm, all that matters is income, right now.

Thus, the overarching paradigmatic goalincreasing GDP , which is the underlying and understated assumption of all the abovewill be accomplished.

Northrop Grumman to buy missile maker Orbital for $7.8 billion Follow The Money

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-orbital-atk-m-a-northrop-grumman/northrop-grumman-to-buy-missile-maker-orbital-for-7-8-billion-idUSKCN1BT0ZZ

U.S. defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corp said on Monday it would buy Orbital ATK Inc for about $7.8 billion in a deal that gives it greater access to lucrative government contracts and expands its arsenal of missile defense systems and space rockets.

The all-cash transaction is the biggest in the defense sector in two years and comes as North Koreas missile and nuclear weapons threats grow, heightening tensions with the United States and its allies.

Clearly, as we watch whats happening around our globe, the rather rapid advance of some of our potential adversaries is quite concerning, Northrop Chief Executive Wes Bush said on a call with analysts.

Although Northrop already has a significant presence in payloads, it has not had launcher capability, an area that Orbital brings for both space and missile defense, Vertical Research Partners analyst Robert Stallard said on Monday.

Iranian Army chief vows to raze two Israeli cities to the ground if it makes tiniest mistake Follow The Money

https://www.rt.com/news/403726-iran-israel-raze-ground/

An Iranian Army commander warns that Tehran will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground if Israel makes any mistake, local media report. The commander also said Israel will not last longer than 25 years.

Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi, who became commander-in-chief of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army (AJA) in August this year, said on Monday that Israel may exist for a maximum of 25 more years, as cited by Tasnim news agency.

He added that any mistake by Israel would result in Haifa and Tel Aviv being razed to the ground, the news outlet reports.

Irans Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, has said on several occasions in the past that Israel wont last another 25 years.

Khamenei also repeatedly urged Muslims to resist and fight to seize Jerusalem, a city that is claimed as a capital by both Israelis and Palestinians.

As Ive said before, if Muslims & Palestinians unite & all fight, the Zionist regime will not be in existence in 25 years,Khamenei wrote on Twitter in December.

Israel and Iran have repeatedly exchanged verbal jabs. In June this year, there were anti-Israel rallies across Iran on Al-Quds Day, with protesters shouting slogans against the Jewish state and condemning the occupation of Palestine. People shouted Death to Israel and held banners with slogans such as Israel should be wiped off the map.

Israel has also had harsh words regarding Iran.

I wouldnt be surprised if, during the Iranian election on May 19, somebody assassinates the president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani,Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in April.

In March, Mossad chief Yossi Cohen said that Iran remains a threat to Israel with or without the nuclear deal.

The worlds central banks cant sit back and ignore the growth in cryptocurrencies as it could pose a risk to the stability of the financial system, according to the Bank for International Settlements.

It said central banks will need to figure out whether to issue a digital currency and what its attributes should be, though the decision is most pressing in countries like Sweden where cash use is dwindling.

Institutions need to take into account of not only privacy issues and efficiency gains in payment systems, but also economic, financial and monetary policy repercussions, the BIS said in its Quarterly Review.

The analysis comes at the end of a rough week for digital currencies, with JPMorgan Chase & Co. chief executive Jamie Dimon calling bitcoin a fraud and China moving to crack down on domestic trading of cryptocurrencies.

http://tracytwyman.com/templars-cybele-mithras-alchemy-william-blake-michael-bloomberg-and-the-city-of-london/

In August of last year I decided, for the first time, to attempt to write a fiction novel using themes that I had developed over the last 23 years of my career writing nonfiction about occult subjects. I decided this mainly because everybody told me I should. My plan was to write a quick and simple dime-store novel taking place in the UK, mainly because the characters I wanted to build were going to be based on people I knew who had lived there. Of course, by the time I finished, it had turned to be something else entirely.

Some of my characters were inspired by my knowledge of the existence of a global network of fake or unrecognized royalty that I had discovered through a former colleague who happened to be a part of it. These people were either pretending to belong to families that didnt recognize them, or often claimed membership in royal houses that didnt exist. They were self-purported heirs du jour to seats of power that no longer existed, or had never existed, sometimes in places that never existed.

With a

new acquisition announced that is expected to close by the end of this month, GoldMining, between historical and 43-101 resources, will have 29 million ounces of equivalent gold resources!When you sum up the parts of their acquisitions, both projects and companies that are now within GoldMining, theyve seen market caps totaling $875 million during higher periods for gold.

Today, their market cap is $215 million.

Right now, the market is valuing this company at less than $10 per ounce of gold in the ground. Their recent acquisition has them buying millions more ounces at around $3 per ounce of historical gold resource in the ground.

You can buy shares today for CAD$1.60, H.C. Wainwright has a price target of CAD$4.50.

The reality is, this stock can go a lot higher and quickly, as larger investors will be looking to partner with what

Calls to punish global warming skepticism as a criminal offense have surged in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, but it hasnt discouraged climate scientists like Judith Curry.

A retired Georgia Tech professor, she argued on her Climate Etc. website that Irma, which hit Florida as a Category 4 hurricane on Saturday, was fueled in large part by very weak wind shear and that the hurricane intensified despite Atlantic Ocean temperatures that werent unusually warm.

That is the kind of talk that could get policymakers who heed her research hauled before the justice system, if some of those in the climate change movement have their way.

Shock Survey: Less Than 1 Out Of Every 4 Republicans In Congress Support A Border Wall The Economic Collapse

It is time to flush the toilet in Washington D.C., because the professional politicians that we have been sending there just keep betraying us over and over again.  On Wednesday, I was absolutely stunned when I came across a brand new survey that was conducted by USA Today.  They asked all of the members of Congress whether they support a border wall or not, and less than one out of every 4 Republicans said that they did.  This is just another example of why the American people are so deeply frustrated with the Republican Party these days.  Most Republicans are spineless jellyfish that have been compromising for so long that they dont really stand for anything anymore.

If President Trump had not promised to build a wall, he never would have won the Republican nomination in 2016, and he sure wouldnt be the president of the United States today.  This is a point that Ann Coulter had made over and over again, and the fact that I strongly support building a wall is a big reason why she is supporting my campaign for Congress.  Conservatives all over the country want a wall, and that is why it is so disturbing to hear that most Republicans in Congress do not support building one

President Trump has been adamant that he needs Congress to approve funding to start building his border wall, but Republicans on Capitol Hill are far less adamant about supporting it. When asked...

Can Putin Stand Up To Washington?

Drake University Emeritus Professor of Economics Ismael Hossein-zadeh explains that the reason Russian President Vladimir Putin so often blinks when Washington confronts him is that the ruling oligarchs in the US and Russia are members of the same financial elite. The more than one hundred Russian billionaires are financially integrated into the West and are able to elevate their interests above Russian national interests.

If this is correct, then Russias only alternative if Russia is to remain a sovereign country and escape being another Washington puppet state like the UK, all of Europe, Canada, Australia, and Japan is to nationalize without compensation the holdings of the Russian billionaires. Most of them stole their fortunes in the turbulent days of Soviet collapse and privatization. The Russian people should steal them back.

Questions Remain as the Fed Finally Begins to Reverse QE Mises Wire

By: Tho Bishop
yellen

Today the Federal Reserve announced that it will finally begin the process of reversing quantitative easing. Following the process it outlined earlier this year, the Fed will start allowing assets (Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities) to mature off its balance sheet, rather than re-investing them as had been its prior policy. The current plan is to start with a $10 billion roll off in October, and increasing quarterly until it reaches $50 billion by October of next year. Considering the Feds balance sheet currently stands $4.5 trillion, the Fed is envisioning a slow, multi-year process. As Philadelphia Fed president Patrick Harker described it earlier this year, the goal is for it to be the policy equivalent of watching paint dry.

Of course the old saying about the best laid plans of mice and men also applies to central planners, and as Janet Yellen once again noted today, policy is not on a pre-set course. Should markets react negatively, as they did when Bernanke hinted at reducing their purchases in 2013, the markets have reason to expect the Fed to act. In fact, when asked, Yellen kept the door open to both lowering interest rates and stalling its roll off should market conditions worsen. In fact, it appears that markets are already betting on the Fed to not follow through on its projected December rate hike.

As the Fed has been signaling for months now that a taper was in the works, the mainstream narrative suggests that tapering has been priced in (though stocks dropped on the news.) There are still major questions left unanswered.

One of the biggest questions going forward is who will step up to replace the Feds purchasing power in the US Securities market? In the past, the US has been able to count on China to purchase US debt. Even before the Trump administration threatened the country with sanctions, China was selling off Treasurys in order to help prop up its struggling economy. With other nations also backing off from US debt, the hope is that investors will fill the gap. While the continued actions of the ECB, BOJ, and other central banks may make US debt more attractive in comparison, increased investments in bonds is likely to come at the expense of other assets.

Of course the noise of the Feds actions only serves to distract from the real issue, which is the continuing economic stagnation of the US economy. While Yellen continues to boast about modest employment gains, full-...

Is Identity Politics Brewing a Holocaust?

Paul Craig Roberts

Signs of American collapse are everywhere. Apparently no one notices. The world continues to vote with the US in the UN. When even Russia and China serve as handmaidens to US foreign policy by voting with Washington against North Korea, it appears that the image of America as the exceptional and indispensable country is a propaganda success even among Washingtons most threatened enemies. When Russia and China follow Washingtons lead, it shows the world that there is no alternative to Washingtons leadership.

A country with a $20 trillion public debt, an even larger private debt, a work force drowning in debt and employed in third world lowly paid domestic services, a stock market pumped up beyond all reason by Federal Reserve liquidity and companies using their profits to repurchase their own stock, a military thats been tied down for 16 years by a few lightly armed Muslims, a propaganda ministry instead of a media with public ignorance the consequence, and with a total collapse of morality in public and private institutions along with the disappearance of courage, is nevertheless able to make the entire world dance to its tune. Washington is the Wizard of Oz.

Washington in the past 16 years has destroyed in whole or part seven countries, murdering, maiming, orphaning, widowing, and displacing millions of peoples. Yet Washington still presents itself as the great defender of human rights, democracy, and all that is good. The American people have voiced few words of protest against the massive crimes against humanity committed by their government.

The UN has not passed a resolution condemning the United States government for its endless aggressions, horrendous war crimes and illegal interventions against other countries.

Washington relies on threats and not diplomacy, and this is acceptable to the world. The UN sits as an American Approval Society because it is funded by American money.

Security agencies have become police state agencies, and they have transformed the obligation in the US military code to report war crimes into acts of treason that result in prison sentences. The US military code, just like the US Constitution and the laws that enforce it, is dead letter law, ignored and unenforced.

Consider the case of Bradley/Chelsea Manning. Bradley Manning released a film showing US troops murdering journalists, pedestrians, a good samaritan and his children as if it were a video game. These murders are war crimes. But it was Manning, who revealed them, not those who committed them, who was punished.

After release from prison Chelsea Manning was recently appointed by Harvard Universitys Kennedy School as a visiting fellow. Most likely Harvard made the appointment to show support for the transgendered, not for truth-tellers wrongly convicted and turned into fel...

Kevin Warsh for Fed chair? TheMoneyIllusion

There is increasing chatter that Kevin Warsh is being seriously considered for Fed chair.  He would not be my first choice, for several reasons:

1.  He is viewed as a well rounded figure, with some knowledge of both monetary policy and the financial system.  Id prefer someone who has great expertise on monetary policy, even if they knew little about anything else.

2.  He was spectacularly wrong about policy during the Great Recession.  Here is Business Insider:

Back in 2009-2011, while still at the Fed, Warsh was keenly worried about inflation at a time when consumer price growth was actually deeply undershooting the central banks 2% target and unemployment remained very high. His concerns, since reiterated in the occasional opinion piece, have proven deeply misguided since the Fed continues to undershoot its inflation goal to this day. Indeed, bond investors have palpable doubts about the Feds plans to continue raising interest rates next year and in 2019.

And here is Politico:

Jordan Haedtler of the progressive group Fed Up, which advocates lower interest rates and more diversity at the central bank, doesnt see Warshs Wall Street ties as a positive.

He was tasked by Bernanke with being the emissary to his former employer and other major Wall Street firms, so his independence from the financial sector is just as questionable as the Trump administration as a whole, he said.

Haedtler also argued that Warsh was spectacularly wrong during the lead-up to the crisis, during the crisis and following the crisis. He cited a March 2007 speech in which Warsh praised the proliferation of new financial instruments, one of the major factors leading to the crisis.

Can we now be sure that Warsh was wrong about monetary policy during the Great Recession?  I think so, but Id also like to briefly discuss the implications of the other view, that we cant be sure he was wrong.  If that were true, then monetary economics would be useless. There would be no core of knowledge worth teaching to our students.  The loony right wing critics of the Fed would be correct; it would be a bunch of priests in robes incanting a lot of mystical mumbo jumbo, with no connection to anything real.  Indeed its now so obvious that money was too tight during the Great Recession that anyone still denying that claim basically loses all credibility.

Imagine that we actually didnt know that Warsh was wrong.  Now imagine a cynical student who likes to shoot his mouth, sitting in the front row of a colle...

The Washington Post's Latest (and Lamest) Attack on the Mises Institute Mises Wire

By: Ryan McMaken
institute2.PNG

Earlier this year, when Nancy MacLean released her book on economist James Buchanan, Democracy in Chains, many of Buchanan's supporters were shocked that someone would manufacture such an intricate and strained conspiracy theory to attack Buchanan. 

MacLean employed all the usual tricks of innuendo and hearsay to arrive at her conclusions: Buchanan was a racist. Buchanan supported dictators. Buchanan pushed a dark agenda of undermining America's most cherished institutions. All accusations relied on guilt-by-association tactics and assigning motivations to Buchanan that MacLean could not possibly have known. 

"But Buchanan was such a harmless guy!" went up the chorus from Buchanan's supporters, who were surprised by the personal nature of many of the attacks. 

What Buchanan's people did not understand was that no matter how much one tries to play "nice" with the mainstream media and mainstream academia, they'll never get beyond their hatred of anyone who favors lower taxes, decentralization, or even the most general libertarian positions. 

In the minds of the typical academic or journalist, the central crime of the libertarians is that they want to leave people alone, and reduce government power. This fact alone makes libertarians despicable. Thus, there's no real harm in trying to pin on them additional charges related to racism or loving dictators. After all, anyone who's awful enough to want to abolish the minimum wage is also likely to be fine with slavery and Pinochet-style car bombings. 

It's facile logic, of course, but this is the natural result of what we might call "libertarian derangement syndrome" in which no accusation is too over-the-top when it comes to attacking libertarians. 

Thus, imagine my lack of surprise when The Washington Post this week published its latest screed against libertarians in general and the Mises Institute in particular. 

The Post publishes a new one of these every year or so, trotting out the same examples over and over to illustrate how libertarians who might seem to be harmless to the untrained eye are really part of a dark underbelly of white-supremacist militarism.

Servant Leadership in Cooperative Business Grassroots Economic Organizing

Where I came from, what I was born into reminds me of what I wish to avoid passing down to succeeding generations. My motivation is in building something; building upon an inheritance that many lay claim to. We stand on the shoulders of giants. My contribution to this legacy, whether footnote or volume, remains to be seen. The manner in which I manage East Wind Nut Butters defines me, both externally and internally, whether I like it or not. Respect for a job well done is accepted awkwardly. Scorn for a mistake, typically self-inflicted, is not taken lightly. The trap of thinking that my work in the business is, in isolation, my most important role in community is an easy one to fall into.

 

The delusions of grandeur that consume my ego at times are not always useful. A solid block of manual labor working in the garden or a grounded conversation with a fellow communard soon alleviates the problem. For this relief I am grateful. Ambition that is constantly checked is potently transformative. This has been my experience at East Wind. Leaders here are servants, and servants are leaders. I am one of many and in this I find comfort. We live to serve. It sounds religious or like a corporate tagline, but the sentiment is sound. Serving each other. Serving your landbase and watershed. Serving the living systems that allow for your existence.

My Conversation with Larry Summers Marginal REVOLUTION

Larry was in superb form, and we talked about mentoring, innovation in higher education, monopoly in the American economy, the optimal rate of capital income taxation, philanthropy, Hermann Melville, the benefits of labor unions, Mexico, Russia, and China, Fed undershooting on the inflation target, and Larrys table tennis adventure in the summer Jewish Olympics. Here is the podcast, video, and transcript.

Here is one excerpt:

SUMMERS: Second, the VIXpeople tend to underappreciate this. The volatility of the market moves very much with the level of the market. The reason is that if a company has $100 of debt and $100 of equity, and then the stock market goes up, its 50/50 levered.

If the stock market goes up by $100, then it has $100 of debt and $200 of equity and its only one-third levered. So when the stock market goes up, its volatility naturally goes down. And the stock market has gone way up over the last 10 months. Thats a factor operating to make its volatility go significantly down.

Its also the case if you look at surprises. The magnitude of errors in the consensus estimates of company profits or the consensus estimates of industrial production or what have you, numbers have been coming in close to consensus to an unusual degree over the last few months.

I think all those things contribute to the relatively low level of the VIX, but those are more in the way of ex post explanations. If you had told me everything that was going on in the world and asked me to guess where the VIX would be, I would expect it to have been a little higher than it is right now.

And:

COWEN: If theres an ongoing demand shortfall, as is suggested by many secular stagnation approaches, does that mean monopoly cannot be a major economic problem because thats from the supply side, and that the supply side constraint isnt really binding if you think of there as being multiple Lagrangi...

This Is Where The Next Financial Crisis Will Come From Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert

By Zero Hedge

In an extensive, must-read report published on Monday by Deutsche Banks Jim Reid, the credit strategist unveiled an extensive analysis of the Next Financial Crisis, and specifically what may cause it, when it may happen, and how the world could respond assuming it still has means to counteract the next economic and financial crash.

In our first take on the report yesterday, we showed one key aspect of the crash calculus: between bonds and stocks, global asset prices are the most elevated they have ever been.

With that baseline in mind, what happens next should be obvious: unless one assumes that the laws of economics and finance are irreparably broken, a deep recession and a market crash are inevitable, especially after the third biggest and second longest central bank-sponsored bull market in history.

But what will cause it, and when will it happen?

Needless to say, these are the questions that everyone in capital markets today wants answered. And while nobody can claim to know the right answer, here are some excerpts from what DBs Jim Reid, one of the best strategists on Wall Street, thinks will take place.

Ah. The good and the bad, the dark and the light. In our tiny mental model of emotions, of mind, of people, we seem to weigh these things equally. As if people have two hearts, or two sides to a heart, each perfectly balancing the other on the scales of the soul. And yet. Something feels like its missing in that way of thinking, isnt it?

By a dark side, we mean: our anger, fear, shame, guilt. Our impulses to hurt and to harm, others and ourselves. Those emotions that we conveniently call negative, because they imply suffering. Yet there is something very different about the light and the dark in us. The dark is an effect. It is caused. It is always a result of something. Sometimes, its a result of childhood trauma. More often, I think, its the consequence of little hurts and harms, planted like seeds, in the soil of time. Either way, darkness is something given.

Darkness in this sense isnt real. It has no substance, reality, fundament. Because its caused, effected, its unnatural. Our fear and guilt and shame and anger are in this way the falsest parts of us. They are not really human nature at alland that is one of the greatest mistakes that Western philosophy makes.

Now, of course, darkness doesnt feel that way. It feels like the most real thing of all. When you are suffering, when you are wracked by depression, guilt, shame, anger, nothing could be more alive. After all, they feel more alive than you, and their point often seems to to be to kill you.

Ive been there, you know. I talk about economics, changing the world, doing good and noble things. Abstractions, numbers, equations. I built a wall for a long time to keep people out, and those were the bricks. But in every little cave, darkness laughs and blooms. If I think back on my life, the darkness was right there in me, too. It whispered unkind things in a sweet, kind voice: Give up. Youre not good enough. Youre a failure. And so on. Maybe youre surprised to hear it, in some way. Ah, but thats the trick the darkness plays on us, isnt it?

The darkness stops us from seeing. Thats why its there. We need it, more than we think, suppose, know. In that darkness, then we can twist and shape people into whatever we need. Heroes, monsters, scapegoats, villains. I think of all the things Ive been made into. All of those and worse. You can think of all the things that youve been made into. Thats why you and I need the darkness. Because the light is even more painful, sometimes. It shows us the truth, the reality, the essence. Then we really see a person, naked, in all their fragility and humilit...

Politicians need to be talking about solutions to the housing crisis Resolution Foundation

Everyones worried about the young. Not least because, if Junes election is anything to go by, it turns out that they do in fact vote and arent exactly enamoured with what it turns out 21st Century Britain has to offer them. Whatever the reason for this summers youth-angsting, its a very sensible thing to do. Its an even better thing to do if it leads to new ideas generated, taboos binned, and change delivered. Housing should be top of the agenda for those in the generating and delivering business, because the young might like their avocado toast but theyd prefer a decent home of their own.

Low home ownership rates are the poster child for the catastrophe that has been housing policy in Britain over the past half century. Todays millennials are only half as likely to own at the age of 30 as the baby boomers were. Four times more of them are renting privately. Many of them not only grew up living in a home their parents owned, they grew up with the assumption that the same would be on offer to them before they had children of their own. They were wrong. The average age of a first time buyer today is 30, while the average age for having a first child is 29. Thats because house price surges have meant it now takes 19 years for a typical earner to save for a deposit, compared to 3 years in the 1980s. Theres been no similar increase in the time taken to produce a child. For all the nonsense about millennials being flighty, when it comes to the security of home ownership theyd rather be a lot less footloose and fancy free.

Unfortunately it turns out that our housing disaster isnt limited to frustrated home ownership. Its also cost all of us a lot of money. In the 1960s we spent 6 per cent of our income on housing. Today that figure is 18 per cent, a tripling of the share of our income that goes on housing that has acted as a drag on the living standards of all of us baby boomers included. And those figures are averages. Looking at specific generations makes the growing pressure of housing costs even starker. The silent generation (born largely pre-war) saw housing costs of a little below 10 per cent of their income during their thirties. That had risen to almost 20 per cent for the post-war baby boomers. More recent generations are paying an average of over 20 per cent of their income on housing. So its not just the millennials that have lost out badly we just put up with it while people were seeing big wealth gains in exchange for rising housing cost. Now the young have realised theyve inherited the certainty of those sky high housing costs in exchange for the possibility of inheriting some of that wealth, probably long after its much use to them. Understandably they dont think thats a great deal.

And while the prospect of inheritance in the distant future may reassure some, many more are making very real compromises in the here and now living in smaller properties, further from where they work....

Whos complacent? Your teenager? Marginal REVOLUTION

teenagers are increasingly delaying activities that had long been seen as rites of passage into adulthood. The study, published Tuesday in the journal Child Development, found that the percentage of adolescents in the U.S. who have a drivers license, who have tried alcohol, who date, and who work for pay has plummeted since 1976, with the most precipitous decreases in the past decade.

The declines appeared across race, geographic, and socioeconomic lines, and in rural, urban, and suburban areas.

Between 1976 and 1979, 86 percent of high school seniors had gone on a date; between 2010 and 2015 only 63 percent had, the study found. During the same period, the portion who had ever earned money from working plunged from 76 to 55 percent. And the portion who had tried alcohol plummeted from 93 percent between 1976 and 1979 to 67 percent between 2010 and 2016.

Teens have also reported a steady decline in sexual activity in recent decades, as the portion of high school students who have had sex fell from 54 percent in 1991 to 41 percent in 2015, according to Centers for Disease Control statistics.

Here is the Tarah Barampour WaPo story.  Is it evolutionary psychology pushing us more into a more stable mode of behavior for safe circumstances, or perhaps teens being more aware of the need to build their resumes?  Or something else altogether different?

These developments are mostly positive, both as symptoms and as active causal agents, and yet

Somewhere along the line there is a positive social payoff from risk-taking, including sometimes from teenagers.  How would rock and roll evolved in such a world?   Who is to help undo unjust social structures?  The graybeards?

Financialization and The Destruction of the Real Economy oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith

Strip an economy of capital, productive incentives, talent and yes, ethics, and what are we left with? An economy spiraling toward an inevitable collapse.
Financialization is destroying the real economy, but few in power seem to notice or care. The reason why is painfully obvious: those in power are reaping vast fortunes from the engines of financialization--for example, former President Obama:Obama Goes From White House to Wall Street in Less Than One Year.
This is not to single out President Obama as a special case; politicos across the spectrum depend on the engines of financialization to fund their campaigns and make them multi-millionaires, and corporate managers and financiers have skimmed billions of dollars in gains not from producing new, better and more affordable goods and services but by playing financialization games such as borrowing billions to buy back stocks, leveraged buyouts, and so on--all of which have reaped the insiders gargantuan fortunes while hollowing out the real economy.

What Is the Correct Amount of Money? Mises Wire

By: Frank Shostak
moneyscale.PNG

Most economists believe that a growing economy requires a growing money stock, on the grounds that growth gives rise to a greater demand for money, which must be accommodated. Failing to do so, it is maintained, will lead to a decline in the prices of goods and services, which in turn will destabilize the economy and lead to an economic recession or, even worse, depression.

Since growth in money supply is of such importance, it is not surprising that economists are continuously searching for the correct or the optimum  growth rate of the money supply.

Some economists who are the followers of Milton Friedman  also known as monetarists  want the central bank to target the money supply growth rate to a fixed percentage. They hold that if this percentage is maintained over a prolonged period of time it will usher in an era of economic stability.

The idea that money must grow in order to sustain economic growth gives the impression that money somehow sustains economic activity. According to Rothbard,

Money, per se, cannot be consumed and cannot be used directly as a producers' good in the productive process. Money per se is therefore unproductive; it is dead stock and produces nothing.1

Money's main job is simply to fulfill the role of the medium of exchange. Money doesn't sustain or fund real economic activity. The means of sustenance, or funding, is provided by saved consumer goods. By fulfilling its role as a medium of exchange, money just facilitates the flow of goods and services between producers and consumers.

Historically, many different goods have been used as the medium of exchange. On this, Mises observed that, over time,

. . . there would be an inevitable tendency for the less marketable of the series of goods used as media of exchange to be one by one rejected until at last only a single commodity remained, which was universally employed as a medium of exchange; in a word, money.2

Through the ongoing process of selection over thousands of years, people settled on gold as their preferred general medium of exchange....

Trump's China-Sanctions Madness Imperils the Dollar Mises Wire

By: Ryan McMaken
uschina.PNG

Last week US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin warned the US will impose new sanctions on China if it doesn't conform to UN sanctions on North Korea:

"If China doesnt follow these sanctions, we will put additional sanctions on them and prevent them from accessing the U.S. and international dollar system, and thats quite meaningful."

In other words, the administration wants to sanction one of the US's biggest trading partners, and the world's second-largest economy.

China is the world's third-largest recipient of Americans exports, behind only Canada and Mexico. China is the world's largest source of imports for Americans, slightly ahead of both Mexico and Canada.

In 2016, Americans exported $169 billion in goods and services to China while importing $478 billion of goods and services. Every year, both consumers and producers benefit from the importation of Chinese electronics, machinery, food, footwear, and more.

Ratcheting up economic warfare with China could serve to cut off these avenues of trade and thus will only cost consumers and small business owners who currently benefit from lower-cost machinery, clothing, and more.

For the mercantilists in the Trump administration, of course, American consumers import "too much" from China anyway, and Americans and ought to be prohibited by the US government from purchasing what they want. The North Korea situation could serve as a convenient excuse for slapping prohibitions on American consumers in the name of "fair trade" while also serving as a foreign policy tool.

The last thing the US consumer needs is a trade war with China.

At this point, however, the US isn't talking about cutting off trade in such a blunt manner.

As Mnuchin notes, the strategy here is to "prevent [the Chinese] from accessing the U.S. and international dollar system." In practice, this would likely mean restricting access to the so-called SWIFT system which facilitates international transactions in dollars.

This idea is highly problematic in its own way. Were the Chinese to be cut off from the dollar, this would only create an enormous incentive for the Chinese to move away from the dollar into other currencies including its own. China's largest trading partners would likely foll...

Brainternet: Researchers Connect Human Mind to Internet for First Time The Event Chronicle

By Jake Anderson

Have you ever thought about whether future humans will live out aspects of their lives online in simulated environments, or even extend their natural lifespans by uploading their minds to a secure cloud ecosystem? Its been a familiar idea in science fiction for decades. With news that Elon Musk was attempting to build a neural lace, the concept of a brain-machine interface (BMI) entered the public lexicon. Now, researchers at Wits University in Johannesburg, South Africa, claim to have linked a human mind to the Internet in real time a biomedical first.

The project, dubbed the Brainternet, required the researchers to gather EEG brainwave signals using only an Emotiv EEG device and a simple Raspberry Pi computer. The experiment allowed the human brain to become an information node in the Internet of Things (IoT).

The experiments supervisor, Adam Pantanowitz, described it this way:

Brainternet is a new frontier in brain-computer interface systems. There is a lack of easily understood data about how a human brain works and processes information. Brainternet seeks to simplify a persons understanding of their own brain and the brains of others. It does this through continuous monitoring of brain activity as well as enabling some interactivity.

Researchers say the project could provide valuable information for future deep learning algorithms and could even assist Musks endeavors in creating true BMI. Many futurists believe that as the impact and everyday importance of the Internet grows, it is inevitable that humans will...

More Thoughts on Trumps UN Declaration of War Against Iran and North Korea

Paul Craig Roberts

Trumps UN speech makes it clear that Trumps presidency, in terms of his campaign promise to remove Washington from the policeman of the world role, exit the Middle East, and repair the damaged relations with Russia, is over. The CIA and the military/security complex are in full control of the US government. Trump has accepted his captivity and his assigned role as the enforcer of Washingtons hegemony over every other country. Washington uber alles is the only foreign policy that Washington pursues.

At the UN Trump actually threatened to wipe North Korea off of the face of the earth. He added to this threat threats against Venezuela (http://stephenlendman.org/2017/09/trump-threatens-venezuela/) and Iran. He demonized these countries as rogue states, but it is Washington that is playing that role. Washington has destroyed in whole or part eight countries in the young 21st century and has 3 to 5 more in its crosshairs.

One question is: why did not the UN audience shout Trump down, a man standing before them telling obvious lies? The answer, of course, is money. The US taxpayers pay roughly one-quarter of the UNs annual budget, leaving the other 130+ countries a light load. Washington is succeeding in driving the world to Armageddon, because the worlds leaders prefer money to truth, to justice, to survival. The UN diplomats see in their cooperation with Washington the opportunity to make money by sharing in the Wests exploitation of their own countries.

Washington, absorbed in its effort to destroy Syria, left it to its Saudi Arabian puppet to destroy Yemen. The Saudi autocracy, a major sponsor with the US of terrorism, has done a good job, thanks to US supplying the weapons and to the US refueling the Saudi attack airplanes. This totally gratuitous war has helped to maximize the profits of the American military/security complex, a collection of evil never before present on the face of the earth. UNICEF reports that one million Yemeni children will be the victims of American compassion of which Trump bragged in the CIAs UN speech.

One wonders if the Russians and Chinese are so absorbed in getting rich like Americas One Percent that they are unaware that they are on the list of countries to be eliminated for not accepting Washingtons hegemony. Really, where was the Russian government when Washington overthrew the Ukranian government? It was at a sports event. And I call Americans insouciant. Where was the Russian government? How could it have not known?

To be frank. The point is this. Unless Russia and China can take out the US, the US will take out Russia and China. The only question...

Category 5 Hurricane Maria hits Dominica, Puerto Rico bracing for catastrophic impact The Event Chronicle

The eye of Category 5 Hurricane Maria was raging across Dominica for more than 2 hours on September 19, 2017, as the strongest storm to hit Dominica ever. It hit the countrys southeast regions about 01:00 UTC (21:00 local time) with maximum sustained winds of 260 km/h (160 mph) and exited in its northwest after 03:00 UTC (23:00 local time). Although some fluctuations in intensity are likely over the next 24 48 hours, Maria is forecast to remain an extremely dangerous hurricane as it approaches the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.

By The Watchers

We do not know what is happening outside. We do not dare look out. All we are hearing is the sound of galvanizing flying. The sound of the fury of the wind, as we pray for its end, Dominicas Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said in a Facebook post as the hurricane raged through the island. My roof is gone. I am at the complete mercy of the hurricane. House is flooding, he posted soon after that, as he was waiting to be rescued.

Initial reports are of widespread devastation, he said just before 06:00 UTC (02:00 local time). So far we have lost all that money can buy and replace. My greatest fear for the morning is that we will wake to news of serious physical injury and possible deaths as a result of likely landslides triggered by persistent rains.

The winds have swept away the roofs of almost every person I have spoken to or otherwise made contact with. The roof of my official residence was among the first to go and this apparently triggered an avalanche of torn away roofs in the city and the countryside, he said.

Come tomorrow morning we will hit the road, as soon as the all clear is given, in search of the injured and those trapped in the rubble. I am honestly not preoccupied with physical damage at this time, because it is devastatingindeed, mind-boggling. My focus now is in rescuing the trapped and securing medical assistance for the injured.

We will need help, my friend, we will need help of all kinds.

It is too early to speak of the condition of the air and seaports, but I suspect both will be inoperable for a few days. That is why I am ea...

56 dead, 200,000 homeless and 11,000 homes destroyed as floods ravage Niger The Event Chronicle

At least 56 people have been killed, nearly 200 000 are homeless and more than 11 000 homes have been destroyed by floods since the start of the rainy season in May, countrys interior ministry reported Tuesday, September 19, 2017.

By The Watchers

The hardest hit is capital Niamey along with Dosso in the south. A humanitarian source told AFP last week that exacerbating the problems were rising River Niger water levels, leading to fears of a repeat of serious flooding in 2012 which left dozens dead and some 500 000 homeless.

Food production will also take a hit, with the flooding killing some 16 000 cattle and about 12 000 hectares (30 000 acres) of crops being ruined, according to UNOCHA.

Last week, Niger said it had launched a campaign to destroy mosquito breeding sites to help combat the spread of deadly malaria in Niamey after the rain transformed some areas into swamps.

Before the start of the rainy season in May, the government advised people living in flood-prone areas to leave their homes before the rains began, said Boubacar Sidikou, secretary general for Nigers Ministry of Humanitarian Action and Disaster Management, as reported by Reuters.

But few heeded the advice because they refused to abandon their homes or had nowhere else to go, he said.

According to Katiellou Lawan Gaptia, head of meteorology at Nigers Met Office, climate change in the Sahel is creating warmer conditions where the atmosphere can hold more moisture, often increasing the volume of rainfall.

This years rain is just extraordinary, he said. In Niamey alone, the seasons rainfall has increased by 84% since 2010.

The value of a human life TheMoneyIllusion

Heres the New York Post:

Better a million dead North Koreans than a thousand dead Americans. The fundamental reason our government exists is to protect our people and our territory. Everything else is a grace note. And the words we never should hear in regard to North Koreas nuclear threats are We shouldve done something.

Instead, we should do something. Pyongyangs Sunday test of a hydrogen bomb of devastating power begs for decisive action. Must we wait until Americans die?

A pre-emptive strike against Kim Jong Uns nuclear and ballistic missile programs would be a terrible thing, demanding a vast military effort (if done properly) and leaving broad destruction in its wake. But that terrible option increasingly appears to be the least bad option. The question is whether well delay action until its too late to save American lives.

Notice that they ignore the South Koreans.  I wonder how they value South Korean lives?  Perhaps 13 cents on the dollar?

Heres Elton John, er, I mean Trump:

The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. The United States is ready, willing and able, but hopefully this will not be necessary. Thats what the United Nations is all about; thats what the United Nations is for. Lets see how they do.

It is time for North Korea to realize that the denuclearization is its only acceptable future.

Just to be clear:

1.  I have no idea what the optimal policy toward N. Korea is.

2. I think Trump makes both tails more likely (nuclear exchange and N. Korea capitulation), but the most likely outcome remains more of the same. The problem is that the tail risks may rise from say 1% to 2% under Trump.  Thats still low, but one of those tails is a very bad outcome, should it occur.

I hope readers now have a better understanding of what I meant last year when I claimed that Trumps reckless personality raised the risk of nuclear war from something like 1% to something like 2%.

PS.  Trump started off his talk with some comments that were of zero interest to the UN audience, and included his usual lies.

Fortunately, the United States has done very well since Election Day last November 8th. The stock market is at an all-time high a record. Unemployment is at its lowest level in 16 years, and because of our regulatory and other...

The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction: Owning the Weather for Military Use The Event Chronicle

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

Authors Introductory Note

Environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) for military use constitute, in the present context of global warfare, the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the worlds weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.

Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined. During the Vietnam war, cloud-seeding techniques were used, starting in 1967 under Project Popeye, the objective of which was to prolong the monsoon season and block enemy supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

The US military has developed advanced capabilities that enable it selectively to alter weather patterns. The technology, which was initially developed in the 1990s under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), was an appendage of the Strategic Defense Initiative Star Wars. From a military standpoint, HAARP  which was officially abolished in 2014 is  a weapon of mass destruction, operating from the outer atmosphere and capable of destabilising agricultural and ecological systems around the world.

Officially, the HAARP program has been closed down at its location in Alaska. The technology of weather modification shrouded in secrecy, nonetheless prevails.

Weather-modification, according to the US Air Force document AF 2025 Final Report,  offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary, capabilities, it says, extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes:

Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog and storms on earth or to modify space weather and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of [military]technologies.

Let Catalonia Decide Mises Wire

By: Jeff Deist
unionist.PNG

Should Catalonia be independent?

Surely Catalans, and nobody else, must answer that question. Some Catalans consider themselves Spanish and some dont. Many Spaniards consider Catalonia part of Spain, while some dont. But its clear that a significant number of Catalans feel politically conquered, and resent it. Why should they live under a Spanish government, when their history, culture, and language are not Spanish?

Its a fair question, and one for which western democracies have no easy answer. If democratic voting is sacrosanct, are the results also sacrosanct, whatever the outcome? Do democrats really want democracy?

Ludwig von Mises summed up the problem succinctly in Liberalism1:

The situation of having to belong to a state to which one does not wish to belong is no less onerous if it is the result of an election than if one must endure it as the consequence of a military conquest.

Certainly many Hillary Clinton voters in the United States feel this way today. They dont consider Trump a legitimate president (even aside from the electoral college issue), and are not particularly interested in respecting election results or the views of Trump voters. They feel their government not only does not represent them, but is actively hostile toward them.

They feel, in short, like many Catalans.

Understanding any regions local politics and history is always a dangerous proposition for outsiders. Catalonia has a messy and complex past, dating back to the late 15th century and the nascent Kingdom of Spain. Momentum for independence from Madrid gathered throughout the 20th century, culminating in a 2014 referendum which the Spanish central government attempted to block in court. Over 80% of voters supported independence, yet only about a third of Catalans participated in the vote. It is unclear whether a scheduled October 1st vote on a new referendum will happen, given the possibility of Spanish criminal charges against the Catalan politicians behind it.

Eh.net Book Review: Economic History of Warfare and State Formation The Past Speaks

Published by EH.Net (September 2017)

Jari Eloranta, Eric Golson, Andrei Markevich and Nikolaus Wolf, editors, Economic History of Warfare and State Formation. Berlin and Heidelberg: Springer, 2016. xxii + 283 pp., $129 (hardcover), ISBN: 978-981-10-1064-2.

Reviewed for EH.Net by Mark Koyama, Department of Economics, George Mason University.
Reviewing an edited volume is always a challenge. The title and blurb of Economic History of Warfare and State Formation suggests a comprehensive account of the economic history of war and states in the tradition of Otto Heinz or Charles Tilly. This volume does not provide this. Rather it is a selection of essays written in honor of the work of Mark Harrison, the distinguished economic historian of the Soviet Union.

The essays included in this volume are all by leading scholars in economic history. It opens with a highly stimulating piece by Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson on Paths to Inclusive Political Institutions. This chapter focuses on the need for state development to be balanced by the rise of a strong civil society if a society is to follow the path towards inclusive political institutions pioneered by classical Athens and early modern England. This piece is ambitious and always interesting, even when one disagrees with it. It goes beyond the arguments they have developed in previous work such as Why Nations Fail (2012) and offers a novel way to think about the formation of liberal states.

The second essay in the volume, States and Development: Early Modern India, China, and the Great Divergence by Bishnupriya Gupta, Debin Ma, and Tirthankar Roy, also tackles an important subject matter. It attempts to integrate the perspectives scholars have gained from focusing on the concept of state capacity into the Great Divergence Debate. This is an important and unstudied topic. And the chapter makes the important point that state capacity was undeveloped in both China and India on the eve of the Great Divergence. But at less than sixteen pages, this essay is far too short and concise to do justice to the topic or to fully engage in the relevant literatures or fully assess the historical evidence.

The second part of the volume contains three papers on the Russia (one of which also considers Finland). This is fitting for a tribute to Harrison who has worked extensively on the Soviet Union, but it represents a narrowing of focus compared to the papers contained in Part 1 and these essays are more likely to appeal to specialists in the field rather than to the general reader. That said, the data contained in both the chapters by Steven Nafziger and Andrei Markevich are fascinating and will no doubt feature in subsequent published articles.

Part three focuses on the economics of warfare. Harrisons essay is a fantastic deconstruction of many widely retold myths about World War 1. In his revisionist reading: the war was the result o...

Do repatriated profits boost economic growth? Marginal REVOLUTION

Not really.  Here is John Cochrane:

The Irish bank [holding Apple profits] can lend the money anywhere. It can buy US mortgage backed securities, it can lend the money wholesale to US banks who lend it out to US businesses. It can even lend the money to Apple US. If Apple or any other US company wants to invest, they can borrow from the Irish bank. Conversely, if profits are repatriated to US banks, those banks can lend the money overseas.

Here is the full story.

Senate approves $700bn military budget The Event Chronicle

The Event Chronicle Editor Note: The cost to end world hunger is $30 billion per year

In an overwhelming 89-to-8 vote, the Senate has approved a defense budget of $692 billion. The National Defense Authorization Act, which passed the House on different terms, will go through a conference committee before it is sent to President Donald Trump.

In comparison, the Trump administration asked for $603 billion for the core activities and $65 billion for armed conflict and overseas missions.

The national defense bill also authorizes over $141 billion for military personnel costs, including pay, benefits, bonuses and moving expenses. It also provides a 2.1 percent pay increase for troops.

The Senate bill further authorizes an additional $8.5 billion for the Missile Defense Agency to strengthen homeland, regional and space missile defense. The $8.5 billion is $630 million above the request set forth by the Trump administration.

The act, however, did fail to include an amendment supported by the White House that would end automatic spending limits under the sequester mechanism, according to CNBC.

More than 300 amendments had been proposed. However, just one received a roll call vote. Senator Rand Pauls (R-Kentucky) effort to repeal the 2001 and 2002 authorizations for military force in Afghanistan and Iraq was killed by senators from both parties.

US Sanctions Backfire: China Opens Credit Line to Iran, Bypassing Dollar The Event Chronicle

By Darius Shahtahmasebi

Following the Trump administrations move to target Iran with fresh sanctions while ending sanctions relief, China has come to Irans aid with an extraordinary gesture. According to the Times of Israel, the president of Irans central bank announced that a Chinese state-owned investment firm has provided a $10 billion credit line for Iranian banks.

The contract for this credit line was allegedly signed in Beijing between Chinas CITIC investment group and a delegation of Iranian banks. The funds are intended to finance water, energy, and transport projects.

As the Times of Israel notes, Iran is vital to Chinas trade ambitions as it develops its trillion dollar One Belt, One Road strategy aimed at dramatically boosting its ties to Europe and Africa.

The One Belt, One Road strategy is a major push by China to create a permanent trade route connecting China, Africa, and Europe. One wouldnt know it from reading and watching the mass media, but Chinas project is one of the reasons why the U.S. has targeted China and Chinas allies so heavily recently. Anti-Media has covered this extensively (the mainstream media has almost all but refused to).

The credit line will use euros and yuan to bypass the U.S. dollar, just one of the latest blows the dollar has taken on the world stage in recent weeks. Iran has already been bypassing the dollar and using the yuan for some time now, and this latest move only appears to strengthen China and Irans increasingly cooperative relationship.

Despite what one might make of Irans actions towards its own people or in the Middle East, it was Iran that provided Syria with a billion-dollar credit line in an attempt to prevent Syria from experiencing a total collapse. Now that the U.S. may be winding up it...

Trumps UN Speech PaulCraigRoberts.org

Trumps UN Speech

Paul Craig Roberts

I listened to part of Trumps UN speech this morning. I was so embarrassed for him and for my country that I had to turn it off.

I wonder if whoever wrote the deplorable speech intended to embarrass Trump and inadvertently embarrassed America as well, or whether the speechwriter(s) is so imbued with the neoconservative arrogance and hubris of our time that the speechwriter was simply blind to the extraordinary contradictions that stood out like sore thumbs all through the speech.

I am not going to describe all of them, just a couple of examples.

Trump went on at great length about how America respects the sovereignty of every country and the peoples will of every country, and how the US, despite its overwhelming military power, never tries to impose its will on any country. What was the administration thinking, or can it think? What about Yugoslavia/Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Pakistan, Crimea, Ukraine, Venezuela, Honduras, Ecuador, Bolivia, Brazil, Argentina, just to mention countries in the 21st century that have been subjected to US military attacks, government overthrows, and removals of political leaders who did not conform to US interests?

Is it respect for the sovereignty of countries to force them to support US sanctions against Iran, Russia, China, North Korea, Venezuela? Is it respect for the sovereignty of countries to impose sanctions on the countries? If this is not imposing Washingtons will on other countries, what is?

Is it respect for other countries to inform them that unless they do as they are told, we will bomb you into the stone age?

I heard Trump complain that the UN Human Rights commission had as members countries with the worst human rights records of our time, and I wondered if he was talking about the United States. Clearly, Trump, the speechwriter(s), the State Department, the National Security Council, the US Ambassador to the UN, indeed the entire administration, do not think that the endless slaughter, maiming, orphaning, widowing, and dispossessing of millions of peoples in many countries, producing waves of refugees, comprise human rights violations.

The arrogance conveyed by Trumps speech is unprecedented.

After assurances that America respects everyone, Trump then made demand after demand and threat after threat against the sovereignty of Iran and North Korea, demanding that the rest of the world back him up.

Neither country is a threat to the US. Unlike the US and Israel, Korea has not been at war since 1953. Irans last war was in the 1980s when Iran was attacked by Iraq. Yet both North Korea and Iran are subjected to constant threats from the US. At the UN Trump threatened North Korea with destruction, and Washington is telling more lies about Iran in order to justify military action....

EXICO CITY In the last week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made Israeli political history by being the first sitting prime minister to visit Latin America, traveling to Argentina, Colombia and Mexico during his brief tour. While his first two stops largely focused on his attempts to garner international support for his crusade against Iran, Netanyahus visit to Mexico, which ended Friday, had a different focus trade and development.

Speaking at a joint news conference with Netanyahu, the increasingly unpopular Mexican President Enrique Pea Nieto announced that the two nations had agreed to update their free trade agreement, which was first signed in 2000.

We have agreed to establish and begin the..negotiations to look over this agreement so that the commercial relationship between both nations intensifies and grows, he stated.

Netanyahu was accompanied by several Israeli businessmen in his visit to Mexico, underscoring his visits overarching themes of increased trade and investment. Around 150 Israeli firms currently operate in Mexico and plans are now underway to further expand their economic cooperation.

In addition, Netanyahu apparently made an offer to Mexico whereby Israel would assist them and the United States in developing Central America, an offer Pea Nieto eagerly accepted. Israels promise, however, has aroused the specter of nation-building while also hinting at the Mexican governments interest in increasing the countrys militarization and quelling do...

United States Establishes First Permanent Military Base in Israel The Event Chronicle

Israeli General Tzvika Haimovitch, the head of Israels Aerial Defense Command, says the move is historic and proves US strategic commitment.

By Jason Ditz

For the first time ever, the United States has established a permanent military base in the nation of Israel, a small air defense base set up inside Israels Mashabim Air Base, in the nations Negev Desert.

Israeli Brig. Gen. Tzvika Haimovitch, the head of Israels Aerial Defense Command, said it was an historic move, and proves Americas strategic commitment to support Israel. He added it would allow for an improvement in interception operations.

The US, of course, has already made deep commitments to supporting Israel militarily into the future, irrespective of the costs. The establishment of the base, however, makes Americas commitment even more overt, and likely more long-lasting.

Though Brig. Gen. Haimovich declined to say if this meant US forces would participate in Israeli combat operations in the future, he said it was much more significant than that simply to have a presence of US soldiers in the country. Exact sizes arent clear, but estimates are that several dozen US soldiers will remain at the base.

What Is Real Wealth? Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert

What is real wealth? Money, right? Currency, gold, quatloos, you name it.Money is real wealth because you can use it to buy whatever you want.

I would argue money in any form is only the means to acquire real wealth, which is the agency, opportunity and time to pursue your lifes work.

The conventional view that wealth is money and leisure has it all wrong. Lets imagine the owner of a vault of conventional treasure: jewels, gold coins, etc.

If the wealth stays in the vault, whats the point of owning this wealth? The secret satisfaction of being wealthy?

If wealth is only an internal state, then lets measure friendship and being needed/wanted as the metrics of wealth. You see the point; if wealth is merely an internal state of satisfaction, then a vault full of money is a poor metric.

What money buys that is real wealth is freedom and control of ones life. This control over ones life is called agency. Agency is defined as the capacity of an actor to act in a given environment. This may not seem like a profound concept, but another way to describe agency is that agency is the opposite of powerlessness.

People with agency define themselves and their identity; they shape the world they inhabit rather than passively await whatever circumstances deliver up.

In the real world, people with agency move on when things no longer work for them in a particular situation. Agency is not just the opposite of feeling powerless; its also the opposite of victimhood, i.e. the state of being in which others are held responsible for all of ones travails and difficulties.

Agency and responsibility are two sides of the same coin: each manifests the other.

Opportunity is a form of wealthand so is the wherewithal to take opportunities that arise. Though there is a random element to opportunityi.e. getting luckythe wherewithal to take the opportunity is not a matter of luck. It requires a specific appetite for risk, perseverance, the ability to discern how best to use the opportunity, and access to the capital required to exploit the opportunity.

Capital is a type of wealth that isn&...

The U.S. Government Is Suing People For Requesting Public Records The Event Chronicle

By Aaron Kesel

The U.S. government is suing citizens requesting public records all over the country, violating the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA). The government is stating that it is in good faith to take away more of our rights, intimidate us and delay FOIA requests, thus challenging the notion of transparency and, in turn, the Open Government Initiative.

Throughout the U.S. government, a growing number of organizations, school districts, municipalities, and state agencies have filed lawsuits against citizens for making FOIA requests to obtain public information. The governmental bodies argue that they are doing so to let the court decide a matter that isnt quite clear legally such as when the documents may be shielded by an exemption or privacy laws. But thats causing problems, and becoming a new way for governments to hide information from taxpayers and even news organizations or individual journalists.

The practice, although highly ridiculed and uncommon, has been going on for years according to Columbia Journalism Review.

However, recently the Associated Press reported three different cases where the government sued citizens in the last year.

In the first case, an Oregon parent Kim Sordyl and journalist Beth Slovic sought details about Portland Public School employees on paid leave. The school board responded by suing them both, arguing that the records are exempt from disclosure due to the personal privacy of employees.

The second case involved two retired teachers, Dr. James Finney and Mike Deshotels, who were sued by Louisiana Department of Education for trying to get information on the schools enrollment data relating to economically disadvantaged and English proficiency students. The two eventually ended up winning the case in a settlement but not before fighting for their rights in court to even see the data and spending $3,000 in legal fees.

Finally, the third case highlighting this abusive practice that the pub...

SECRET Document Reveals Fmr CIA Directors Plan to Make Reading WikiLeaks a Crime The Event Chronicle

A declassified CIA report called for legislation that would allow for the prosecution of anyone in possession of classified informationincluding journalists and readers.

By Jay Syrmopoulos

Washington, DC A SECRET declassified report by then-CIA Director William Casey, titled, Unauthorized Disclosures to the Media proposed creating legislation that would make possession of classified information a criminal offense.

At the time that would make anyone reading a New York Times article with classified information, or WikiLeaks in the modern-era, criminally liable and able to be prosecuted by the state.

Although Casey was in favor of creating new legislation to specifically target media leaks, as well as those who come to possess those leaks (journalists or readers), he argued against utilization of the Espionage Act to prosecute leakers.

WikiLeaks: Spy Files Russia The Event Chronicle

By Wikileaks

This publication continues WikiLeaks Spy Files series with releases about surveillance contractors in Russia.

While the surveillance of communication traffic is a global phenomena, the legal and technological framework of its operation is different for each country. Russias laws especially the new Yarovaya Law make literally no distinction between Lawful Interception and mass surveillance by state intelligence authorities (SIAs) without court orders. Russian communication providers are required by Russian law to install the so-called SORM ( - ) components for surveillance provided by the FSB at their own expense. The SORM infrastructure is developed and deployed in Russia with close cooperation between the FSB, the Interior Ministry of Russia and Russian surveillance contractors.

PETER-SERVICE

19 September, 2017

Today, September 19th 2017, WikiLeaks starts publishing the series Spy Files Russia with documents from the Russian company - (PETER-SERVICE). This release includes 209 documents (34 base documents in different versions) dated between 2007 and 2015.

PETER-SERVICE was founded 1992 in St. Petersburg as a provider for billing solutions and soon became the major supplier of software for the mobile telecommunications industry in Russia. Today it has more than 1000 employees in different locations in Russia, and offices in major cities in Russia and Ukraine. The technologies developed and deployed by PETER-SERVICE today go far beyond the classical billing process and extend into the realms of surveillance and control. Although compliance to the strict surveillance laws is mandatory in Russia, rather than being forced to comply PET...

Bill Holter: ALL the Kids in School Are STANDING UP to the Bully The Event Chronicle

The quick pace of the US dollar economic collapse news and fiat currency crisis events demonstrates that the dollar is at the end of the rope. What happens next is not good

Bill Holter interviewed on the X22 Report

Bill says that selling oil for dollars gets leaders killed. So far, there is no indication of US agression against Venezuela. Venezuela has started pricing oil in yuan, and Russia has stepped up and said an attack on Venezuela is an attack on Russia. The new oil for gold-backed yuan will only add fuel to the petro-dollar fire.

The dollar has been devalued over and over, especially since 1971. Money velocity is dead, and the shift from West to East, and with it, the control of the world monetary system has begun.

Gold is the true hedge against inflation, uncertainty, and it protects wealth in times of crisis. Silver too. Bill does not see a smooth transition in this changing world dynamic, so plenty of gold & silver in the coffers could be very smart indeed.

Seven hundred $100 bills are lying on the sidewalk. Pick them up!! TheMoneyIllusion

I have wonderful news for everyone.  The prize money for two Hypermind NGDP markets has soared to $70,000, which includes $35,000 in prize money for the 2017:Q1 to 2018:Q1 contract (currently trading at about 39, or 3.9% NGDP growth), and another $35,000 for the 2018:Q1 to 2019:Q1 contract.

Update:  This announcement triggered a lot of interest in the contract. Hypermind sent me a better link to the two markets.

Remember that this is free money.  You do not have to invest any of your own money to participate.  You can win money, but you cannot lose.  Our hope is that this prize money will lead to more trading in the NGDP markets, more liquidity.

Once again, NGDP growth expectations are the single most important market price, the single most important measure of the performance of the macroeconomy.  Its a scandal that the economics profession has ignored this issue, but the Mercatus Center and Hypermind have cooperated so that we will have a real time measure of the publics NGDP growth expectations.  (Here is the Mercatus announcement.)

Participating in this market can result in free money, thousands of dollars worth of free money for the more talented/lucky (pick one) participants. But the more important reason for participating is that this will tend to shine a spotlight on expected growth in aggregate demand.  Progressives should want that to happen.

And theres something for conservatives too.  I hope that the financial press will eventually start reporting current NGDP futures prices.  This will gradually put more pressure on the Fed to pay attention to market forecasts, and move from a discretionary policy approach to a more rules-based approach.  Thus NGDP targeting has something for both progressives and conservatives, which is why its an increasingly popular idea among economists on both the left and the right.

PS.  Im also a believer in the watched pot never boils theory, so I believe this market makes it less likely that a recession will occur before 2019. (Making this the longest expansion ever.) Recessions only occur when NGDP expectations fall sharply, and I believe the Fed will not want to see NGDP expectations fall sharply. Please file away this prediction, and remind me of it if I am wrong.

PPS.  David Beckworth has a very interesting podcast with Larry Summers.

China clamps down on cryptocurrencies as the battle for global financial control deepens The Event Chronicle

The price of bitcoin plunged on Thursday after Chinese authorities crack down on cryptocurrencies, with the countrys biggest exchange announcing the suspension of operations.

The virtual currency fell more than 11 percent, trading at $3,544.14 as of 14:00pm GMT.

This is far below the all-time high of $5,013.91 set earlier this month.

According to China Business News, regulators in Shanghai and the countrys financial center gave verbal instructions to exchange operators to end services. The exchanges will reportedly shut down at the end of September.

BTC China, one of the countrys top three exchanges, tweeted on Thursday it will close down operations by September 30.

Last week, China banned initial coin offerings (ICOs), referring to them as an unauthorized fundraising tool that may involve financial scams. The Chinese central bank said those who have already raised money should pay it back.

China accounts for about 90 percent of all bitcoin trading on exchanges, and demand for the virtual currency was on the rise.

Beijing has strengthened control over bitcoin trading platforms to prevent them from becoming money laundering sites. It tried to curb capital outflow following fears of continued weakness in the domestic currency.

Guess Who Concocted the War on Terror Doctrine Before 9/11? The Event Chronicle

The War on Terror is a concoction to manipulate you out of your rights and allow an endless war against a faceless enemy.

By Makia Freeman

War on Terror has become a catchcry phrase after the biggest of all false flag operations, September 11th. While its true that 9/11 became the pretext for the War on Terror, and catapulted the doctrine from an idea to official US policy (and a preeminent Western ideology going into the 21st century), the idea didnt originate with the George W. Bush Administration. The origins of the phrase War on Terror can actually be traced back to around 1979 and to another infamous New World Order agenda-pusher by the name of Benjamin Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister of Israel. The War on Terror has become such a hackneyed phrase that its worthy of being trademarked and corporatized, if the Military Industrial Complex hasnt done so already. Think of how much carnage, death and destruction have been wrought in the name of fighting the War on Terror and its various offshoots such as Radical Islamic Terrorism  millions of people killed in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Yemen, Syria, Palestine and more  and theres no sign of it stopping. The War on Terror is the ultimate abstract endless war against a nebulous faceless enemy. Its not going to stop until enough people see through the deception.

Netanyahu: inventor of the War on Terror doctrine.

Meet Benjamin Netanyahu, Inventor of the War on Terror

Netanyahu is more than just an Israeli politician. Netanyahus father, Benzion Netanyahu, was a leader of Revisionist Zionism, a colonialist, aggressive, xenophobic and expansionist form of Israeli nationalism founded by Zeev Jabotinsky in the early part of the 20th century. Netanyahu was already talking about terrorism in 1979 when he wrote his book International Terrorism: Challenge and Response that year. He wrote another book on terrorism in 1995, a major work entitled Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terror...

How will unschooled kids become socialized? Free State Project

Children Holding Hands

by James Davis

Welcome back to our monthly unschooling blog! If you have any questions youd like answered in this blog, please email me at james@dfsr.com. Id love to hear from you and answer any questions you might have (and talk parenting, if youd like!). Todays question comes from my very own life. Its one I was asked recently, but its also been a constant theme throughout our parenting journey, so it felt like a good one to address here:

In the absence of school, how DO young people go about making friends?

Ill begin to answer this question with another question: How do grown-ups go about making friends? How do people who arent forced to go to the same building every day make friends?

The answers are myriad, of course, but the important thing is to separate ourselves from the assumption that children are fundamentally different than grown-ups. Yes, they have learned fewer life lessons we have. Yes, they dont have as much information about where other people are, and they likewise dont have the ability to get very far on their own. But good news! Thats why they have us! With a little intentional planning from grown-ups, facilitating community among our children isnt very difficult.

In our little unschooling community here on the Seacoast of New Hampshire, interactions with other young people are commonplace. Many of us bring our kids to the Exeter Farmers Market every Thursday, for instance, so that our kids can have the opportunity to engage (or not) with other kids in a non-threatening way. Many of us get together in smaller gatherings two to five families at a time and do everything from visiting Water Country in Portsmouth, to having camp fires at our own homes, to playing at local parks. We could almost certainly find other families to hang out with every day if our family wanted to. And this doesnt even account for other, modern hang-out opportunities. For instance, our kids have an ongoing Skype call with a bunch of homeschooled kids where they play Minecraft. Weve connected with kids in other regions who share the same digital interests as our kids as well.

Simply put, finding people isnt a problem. But theres more to helping kids become socialized than just finding people. Becoming socialized, to me, is just one component of learning to exist in the world. As unschooling parents, we certainly want to facilitate opportunities for our kids to get to know people o...
