Several years ago, I was privy to see some fairly high level documents that suggested a “change” in our nuclear war capacity. For decades, the idea was that there would always be “détente” and thus no large scale nuclear war. Détente is the simple idea that if I have nukes and you have nukes, we’d mutually destroy each other and thus the best war would be no war. There’s no winners.
But the warmongers and spinner heads at the think tanks, began to change their tune about 6 years ago. I mentioned this a few times over the years, but most of the reaction was the typical eye rolls and “oh boy, Bob’s going off the deep end again”. See, the new thinking is that if we put enough anti-missiles on Russia’s borders, we could actually launch a nuclear strike, and then shoot down their response missiles before they got anywhere.
Why else can you explain the incessant push to put NATO on Russia’s doorsteps? Why else the sudden interest in N. Korea, and the deployment of all the THAD missile “defense” weapons in the region? Well, last week Paul Craig Roberts put out an article that I think you all need to look at. Here it is....
Washington Plans to Nuke Russia and China
Paul Craig Roberts
Not everyone likes to hear about the threat of nuclear war. Some find refuge in denial and say that nuclear war is impossible because it makes no sense. Unfortunately, humankind has a long record of doing things that make no sense.
I have pointed out both written documents and changes in US war doctrine that indicate that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear attack on Russia and China. More recently, I have shown that Washington’s demonization of Russia and President Putin, the incessant lies about Russian deeds and intentions, and the refusal of Washington to cooperate with Russia on any issue have convinced the Russian government that Washington is preparing the Western populations for an attack on Russia. It is obvious that China has come to the same conclusion.
It is extremely dangerous to all of mankind for Washington to convince two nuclear powers that Washington is preparing a preemptive nuclear strike against them. It is impossible to imagine a more reckless and irresponsible act. Yet this is precisely what Washington has done.
Lt. Gen. Viktor Poznikhir, Deputy Head of Operations of the Russian General Staff has concluded that Washington in pursuit of global hegemony is implementing an anti-ballistic missile system that Washington believes can prevent a Russian nuclear response to a US pre-emptive attack. http://www.fort-russ.com/2017/04/us-forces-preparing-sudden-nuclear.html
Careful studies have convinced the Russians that Washington is investing in and arranging components that have no other function than to devastate Russia and cripple the country’s retaliatory capability. In short, Washington is preparing to launch a nuclear war. https://www.rt.com/news/386276-us-missile-shield-russia-strike/
As I explained previously, the theory behind this insane scheme is that after America’s preemptive strike Russia will be so devastated that Russia would not retaliate with any remaining forces out of fear that Washington would launch a second major strike. Washington also plans to use agents in place to assassinate as many members as possible of the Russian government, thus leaving the government in confusion without leadership.
Yes, the insane American/Israeli neoconservatives are this determined to exercise hegemony over the world.
Yes, Washington is sufficiently criminally insane to risk the destruction of life on earth based on the supposition that Washington’s offense will work perfectly and Russia and China’s capabilities will be so degraded that no retaliatory response will occur.
One might hope that the American and Western populations would be outraged that Washington is so power-crazed that Washington is subjecting all life to such risks. But there is no sign of an anti-war movement. The Western leftwing has degenerated into Identity Politics in which the only threat comes from white heterosexual males who are portrayed as misogynists, racists, and homophopes. The Western leftwing is no longer war-conscious. Indeed, the leftwing has become diverted into such silly irrelevancies as transgender rights to toilets of their choice. The impotence of the Western left is so overwhelming that the left might as well not exist.
Where then is the hope? Russia and China cannot simply sit there and await America’s preemptive nuclear strike.
Possibly Washington does not intend a preemptive strike, but only to convince Russia and China that Washington’s preparations give Washington so much predominance in a conflict that Russia and China will submit to Washington’s hegemony. But this interpretation of Washington’s intention implies no less risk. Why would Russia and China wait for Washington to complete its preparations for war, preparations that permit Washington to turn Russia and China into puppet states?
The US military/security complex has clearly prevailed over Trump’s intention to normalize relations between the US and Russia, and anti-Russian venom continues to pour out of NATO and Washington’s European vassal states. The majority of the American people seem to have accepted the propaganda that Russia is the number one threat to the United States. With propaganda controlling the explanation, Washington’s aggressive actions are explained as defense against a threat and not as a policy that will end life on earth.
The chances are high that life on earth is approaching its end. The responsibility lies heavily on the American people, whose success, due to the mistakes of others, made Americans think that they are exceptional and privileged. Unaware of the inhumane threat to all life that is embodied in the neoconservative claim that Americans are exceptional and indispensable, the self-satisfied American public is unaware of the consequences of such hubris. Hubris is leading them, and the entire world, to slaughter in thermo-nuclear war.
The neoconservative claim of American exceptionalism is the identical claim made for Germans by Hitler. If Americans are indispensable, everyone else is dispensable and can be “bombed into the stone age” as one US government official put it, or nuked as Washington intends to do to Russia and China. The claim of American exceptionalism is not accepted by Russia and China. Therefore, the insane, crazed monsters who rule over the West in Washington are bringing life on earth to an end.
And there are no protests. The idiot British, the idiot Germans, the idiot French, Italians, Canadians, Australians, Belgians, Greeks, Portuguese, Spanish, Japanese, rally behind the insanity that is Washington.
And so apparently do the American people, a population stupid beyond all belief.
So, why did I bring this up? Because I continue to see news articles about ever more troops going to Poland’s borders. Ever more ships heading toward N. Korea. Ever more deployment of THAAD’s. While we sit and cheer a stock market that evidently can never go down, I keep seeing movements that suggest someone’s going to do something enormously stupid. But hey, at least I’m not the only one watching this, and maybe if enough people talk about it, we can question it and stop it. Even if their real desire is to “bluff” the opponents into surrender, mistakes happen. Nuclear mistakes however are...rather dire events, don’t you think?
On Friday the S&P closed at an all time high. We’ve just come through 7 weeks of really lousy “hard” data, but it hasn’t mattered. We wrote two complete articles with the theme of “nothing matters”, as the main thesis. It still holds true, no matter the news, this market goes up.
People are selling bonds and buying stocks. People are selling gold and silver and buying stocks. There’s an eerie similarity between what I’m seeing right now and what we saw way back in 1999.
But what I’m struggling with is this... I’m on record saying that it is the Central banks that are backstopping the markets. And, because of their backstopping, people are now convinced that markets only go up. Hey, I can understand that, because they’ve seen it rise for so long in the face of simply lousy fundamentals. So here’s the question...have we actually entered the period in time, where they’re going to blatantly send this market ever higher, with no regards to the reality?
The hard data clearly suggests a recession is close. Auto sales for April fell off a cliff. 5, 6 and 7% drops aren’t just a blip. Subprime loans going bad are again becoming a problem. Insiders are selling their stock at an almost record ratio of 11 sells to 1 buy. GDP is dismal. The difference between what companies really made “GAAP” vs what they tell the street “adjusted” is now running 20 to 25% different. In Friday’s jobs report, they tell us 211K jobs were created. But the BLS’s “birth/death” MODEL included 255K in the report. Take out the phantom jobs and we lost 44K jobs.
Are the central banks going to continue to push the stock market up to more all time highs, even when the TV analysts have to finally admit that “we’re in a recession?”
Today is Sunday and over in France, they’re doing all they can to get their EU loving, Banker puppet, Macron in place. They’ll probably succeed. Hitting the all time closing high on Friday was in response to the latest polls showing him having a substantial lead. If he pulls it off, we’ll probably see a spike higher on Monday. Then the only question is...does it start a whole new leg higher....or...is it something of a blow off top, sort of “buy the rumor and sell the news?” We’ll soon find out.

The story of Henny Penny, also called Chicken Little, or sometimes Chicken-licken (not to be confused with “Finger-licken” from Kentucky Fried Chicken), the terrified little chicken convinced that the sky is falling and that life as we, or at least as chickens know it, is over... is so common that “the sky is falling!” and “Chicken Little” and related names have become bywords for fearmongering, and the often tragic results that occur.

Wizard of OZ
In the movie the Wizard of Oz, the all-powerful, all knowing Oz really just turned out to be a little man behind a curtain, with no special powers, but who had all sorts of smoke and mirrors and eerie noises he could use.

Ethanol, the Problem
The other day I wrote a piece about dealing with the heat of Florida during a power outage, where the temp might be 94 degrees and the Humidity over 85%. I mentioned that a good gas generator, and a small window air conditioner can indeed get you through some rough nights.

Do I dare?
Having been a gold and silver bull for a long long time, sometimes you feel pretty good about things, and other times...well, you don’t. When gold went from 295 to 1000 an ounce as we predicted, we sure felt good. When we did the first “Vegas” play and turned 30K into 1.2 million via silver miners, we felt good. Even when we did the second Vegas play and turned 19K into 244K (which like an idiot I didn’t take off the table) things were good.

Do you know the plan? Has anyone called you with it? No? Well me neither. So, since we don’t have the plan, the only thing we can do is ask questions and try and figure out that plan.
We are in the most bizarre of worlds. Not many know this, but when you add up the assets that have been bought by the leading Central banks of the world, you come up with a startling figure.

It’s Monday morning. I’m sitting here looking at the spaghetti string models of Hurricane Irma. I have to tell you, I’m not warm and fuzzy with what I see. Yes it’s a week away. However, on this particular day, 4 of the “better” models have Irma hitting Southern Florida and coming right up the center of the state. Only one has it putting in a really hard right turn late in the week and sending it up into the Carolina/Virginia area.
