What do you believe that almost no one else believes?” This is Peter Thiel’s favorite question when he is interviewing. It helps him find people who think for themselves, something that seems to become more rare every day. For example, look at what Bjorn Lomborg, Matt Ridley, and Michael Crichton have to say about global warming, and then see who else dares say such things. Today we explore the unexplorable.

The US stock markets are recognized by a growing number of analysts as approaching, or already in, bubble territory. Yet stocks have ratcheted up another 15%-20% since Trump won the election. The run-up is sometimes called the ‘Trump Trade’. Investors have been ploughing in even more anticipating another stage of corporate profits subsidization by Trump and Republican fiscal policies—Trump proposed $6.2 trillion in tax cuts, deregulation (Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, EPA, Mergers & Acquisitions encouragement, etc.), shifting hundreds of billions $ from social programs to defense spending, and $1 trillion in Trump proposed infrastructure spending. Jack explains how expectations of the policy shift to fiscal from central bank, monetary policies from 2008-2016, is now the new strategy for subsidizing corporate profits and investor further wealth gains. Central bank monetary policy had run its course and began to develop contradictions. Fiscal policy—tax cuts, deregulation, infrastructure and defense spending—is the new strategy. US stocks surged in anticipation of the new profit opportunities. But signs Trump may not deliver have stopped investors in their tracks this past week. Failure to deliver policy may result in a major stock pullback in 2017. Jack cites various sources that the current stock market bubble has peaked.
He’s back, Bill Clinton, still selling the myth that his all-but-defunct, corruption-riddled Clinton Foundation saved the lives of millions of HIV/AIDS sufferers around the world through the foundation’s HIV/AIDS program. The former president is one of three “well-deserving” luminaries being lauded tonight at a Manhattan gala commemorating the Gay Men’s Health Crisis’ 35th anniversary. The Clinton Foundation, the GMHC says …

The Conspiracy Guy #17: The House Intelligence Hearings on Russian involvement in the 2016 election are a complete and total farce. When you break down the three elements of the alleged events, they are (1) claims the Russian affected the actual vote; (2) claims the Russians hacked the DNC; and (3) claims a “dossier” proves Trump was compromised and the Russians had proof. Director Comey and NSA Admiral Rogers denied (1) immediately. We know that (3) was “fan fiction” by a 4 Chan chat board member, which Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe told Reince Priebus on 15 February were “bullshit”, which was confirmed by former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in a call to President Trump. That leaves (2), but we know the chain of custody of the DNC’s emails went from Seth Rich, their IT guy, who was disillusioned by the sabotaging of Bernie Sanders campaign, to Craig Murray, a friend of Julian Assange. to Julian for publication. Both have affirmed the know the identity of the leader and he was not Russian. The DNC, embarrassed by the revelations, needed a cover story, which led them to make up the “Russian hacking meme”. Proof it was contrived–a work of complete fiction–follows from the DNC’s refusal to allow the FBI access to the servers the were allegedly hacked, which would have provided no evidence, because they were not hacked. More information is coming about that substantiates Trump’s claim to have been spied upon by Obama–and it is not going to make those who have been promoting the phony “Russian hacking” theory look good.
It’s Day 3 of confirmation hearings for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, who President Donald Trump has selected to fill the vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia last year. With robust Republican support, Gorsuch seems poised to join the nation’s highest court. Republicans savored an earlier victory last year when they blocked consideration of President Barack Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, after a 247-day wait for a hearing that never materialized.
