What You Do On Your Cell Phone Could Come Back To Haunt You

As far as Big Brother is concerned, nothing that you do on your cell phone is ever private.  And if the government really wants to see what is on your cell phone, they are going to get that information one way or another, even if that means resorting to physical violence.   On Monday, NBC News provided us with yet another glaring example of how the United States is being transformed into a Big Brother police state.  On January 1st, Akram Shibly and Kelly McCormick from Buffalo, New York were coming back home from a trip to Toronto, and they didn’t […]

Why The Melted Fuel Under Fukushima Could Poison Our Planet With Nuclear Radiation For 1000s Of Years

Six years ago, an absolutely devastating tsunami caused a triple meltdown at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power facility.  It was the worst environmental disaster in all of human history, and even though six years have passed since that time, nobody knows where the three melted cores are.  Just recently, authorities believe that they spotted some melted fuel underneath reactor 2, but even from a distance the level of nuclear radiation that was detected was being described as “unimaginable”.  Essentially what we are talking about are three enormous “dirty bombs” that are continuously emitting tremendous amounts of nuclear radiation into the air, […]

Job Creation Could Fall off a Cliff in the Months Ahead

Let’s do a quick thought experiment… Imagine you’ve got two people in the workforce. Let’s say one is 40 and the other 65. When both are gainfully employed, the unemployment rate is 0%. We’re enjoying full employment within the labor pool. During the recession, the 40-year-old loses his job. With only two people in the labor pool, that means only half of the working age population that wants a job, has a job. Unemployment is at 50%. Ouch. As the economy recovers, the 40-year-old once again finds work. However, he’s earning less than he was before. Great news, sort of. […]

10 Ways That Donald Trump Could Try To Reverse The Curse That Obama Has Put On America

When Barack Obama betrayed Israel at the United Nations, that put a curse on our nation.  But that doesn’t mean that we have to stay cursed.  In the coming days, the new Trump administration should immediately start taking steps to reverse the curse that we are under as a result of what Obama has done.  Perhaps if Donald Trump takes strong enough steps to try to undo what Obama has done, instead of being cursed we can once again return to being blessed. One thing that Trump will not be able to undo is UN Security Council Resolution 2334.  It would take another UN Security […]

China’s Economic Imperialism Could Spell Trouble

In 2007, a Chinese company bought Mount Toromocho in Peru. That’s right. A mountain, in another country. It’s more than half the height of Mount Everest, but aesthetic beauty wasn’t a factor. Beneath the mountain’s surface sits two billion tons of copper, one of the largest reserves in the world. Through a state-owned company, the Chinese government secured access to yet another natural resource overseas. Over the last 20 years, the country has employed a kind of economic imperialism, buying minerals, farms, and water rights in far-flung places around the globe. Now the country is developing the technical know-how of […]

If Hillary Clinton Is Charged With Obstruction Of Justice She Could Go To Prison For 20 Years

In the world of politics, the cover-up is often worse than the original crime.  It was his role in the Watergate cover-up that took down Richard Nixon, and now Hillary Clinton’s cover-up of her email scandal could send her to prison for a very, very long time.  When news broke that the FBI has renewed its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, it sent shockwaves throughout the political world.  But this time around, we aren’t just talking about an investigation into the mishandling of classified documents.  I haven’t heard anyone talking about this, but if the FBI discovers that Hillary Clinton […]

World War 3? Barack Obama Could Take A Major Step Toward War With Russia On Friday

Because the mainstream media is devoting almost all of their time and energy to covering the Trump and Clinton campaigns, most Americans don’t realize that the Obama administration is bringing us perilously close to war with Russia.  On Friday, Barack Obama is going to sit down with his foreign policy team and discuss “military options” in Syria.  As you will see below, the options under consideration include direct strikes “on Syrian military bases”.  Russia has already pledged to respond militarily to any direct strikes on Syrian forces, and so the decisions that Barack Obama makes regarding Syria on Friday could […]

How Deutsche Bank Could Take Down Germany

The first bad news broke following the third quarter of 2015. Deutsche Bank reported a loss of $ 7 billion. The news just keeps coming with low or negative earnings thanks to bad loans in Germany and abroad. In my February 19, 2016 edition of The Leading Edge, I issued a clear and stern warning about Deutsche Bank and about a second banking crisis looming. I explicitly said… The Telegraph ran an article yesterday asking if Deutsche was the next Lehman. Is there an echo in the room? Without a doubt, things are coming to a head at the bank. […]

Marc Faber Issues A Stunning Warning That A Gigantic 50 Percent Stock Market Crash Could Be Coming

Are we about to witness one of the largest stock market crashes in U.S. history?  Swiss investor Marc Faber is the publisher of the “Gloom, Boom & Doom Report”, and he has been a regular guest on CNBC for years.  And even though U.S. stocks have been setting new record high after new record high in recent weeks, he is warning that a massive stock market crash is in our very near future.  According to Faber, we could “easily” see the S&P 500 plunge all the way down to 1,100.  As I sit here writing this article, the S&P 500 […]

Sovereign Debt – What Could Go Wrong?

It has been reported that about $ 10 Trillion of sovereign debt “yields” negative interest. Assume total global sovereign debt is about $ 60 Trillion. Therefore, about one-sixth of all sovereign debt has negative interest rates. This brings to mind a few questions. Do negative interest rates sound absurd, even insane? Would bankers and central bankers in 2012 have believed that interest rates could be pushed so low they actually went negative? Does anyone see a problem with negative interest rates? Let’s review. Central bankers assure us they want price inflation and want to avoid deflation. They create the desired […]
