 Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

 NOTE>> My sister ( Yes I have one) is coming to town today to visit with my mom for a week. I've been elected to get her from the airport this afternoon. So, I may not have an afternoon update.

So, the futures are big and green this morning. Why is anyone's guess. Global markets are running around like the proverbial chickens without heads, ducking and jumping over every perceived good or bad. 

Take Walmart's earnings report this morning. They beat the estimates, but revenues fell. Then they jawboned about comp sales rising, yet if you look closely, it wasn't more people buying more stuff, it was the same people buying higher priced items. That's called inflation, but hey, Uncle Sam says there isn't any.

Hello everyone. 

There's mystery here at the Bob house this morning.  When I put up the kitchen blinds and looked out back, our concrete bird bath was laying on the ground, and a hanging bird feeder was on the ground. Hmmm!

Venezuela
 
So it's Tuesday afternoon and I'm minding the market, keeping an eye on a couple stocks I'm interested in. Then I start seeing things in my news feeds that are really disturbing. Down in Venezuela, they're on the brink of a civil war, or worse, a clash between loyalists to Maduro, and the new US puppet Juan Guaido.

MMT the New Old Buzzword

 

One of the themes you’ll see recently is this push for acceptance of “MMT” or modern monetary theory.  As we’ll see, this isn’t a new concept, it’s simply one that’s being given a lot of air time because our current politics have a lot of communist/socialists on board. Consider Bernie for example. He freely admits hes a socialist.

Guest Article

When I stumble onto something that someone else has written, and I think it’s worthy of consideration, I gladly reprint it and give credit to the author. Below, we have Doug Casey talking about the few Fed head, and what could be coming at us in the next couple years. I think it’s a decent article, and worth the read.

Until It Can’t?

Over the years, we’ve talked many times about the fact that Central banks are now enormous buyers of actual stocks. We’ve mentioned how the Bank of Japan owns almost ¾ of all their market ETF’s. How the Swiss national bank has bought literally billions of dollars worth of AAPl,  and MSFT and XOM.  We’ve talked about how companies have borrowed money at virtually zero interest rates and used the money to buy up their own shares of stock.

Lying Fed Heads
 
One of the problems you face when you write a newsletter that goes out to thousands of folks, is that often the things you say...are diametrically opposed to what people have taken as fact for years. Then they have to try and figure out if I’m simply nuts, or maybe they realize that they’ve been shoveled a bucket of horse hockey all those years. It causes stress I’m sure.
 
For instance, we all know that Eve ate an apple in the Garden of Eden right? Well not so fast. She ate from the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Not once is it mentioned in the Bible that it was an apple. It probably wasn’t. Yet it’s taken as a generalized fact that she ate an apple.

What color is that Dress?

I’ve just come through a particularly trying week, one in which my mother-in-law passed away, and along with it the grief and sorrows of the family. As you might imagine I’ve been preoccupied with that event, and not able to devote the time I generally spend in watching the madness of our world unravel.  But sometimes the enormity of what takes place simply muscles its way into your life no matter the distraction.

This week was surely one of those times. In the course of just 10 days, the things that we’ve seen transpire would have taken one’s breath away in virtually any other time in history. But in 2015? Nah, not so much.  See, we had a dress color to debate. The internet and the news media was obsessed with trying to figure out if the dress in question was one of white and gold, or blue’s and black. It was massively important stuff, so much so that Hollywood figures, Country music stars, journalists, doctors of psychology, and more weighed in with their thoughts.  It was by far the most important discussion of the last several days.
