David Cay Johnston – The Trans-Pacific Partnership threatens our liberty

Economic theory holds that removing trade barriers among nations should increase global wealth. But the proposed 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership that Congress must soon give a straight up-or-down vote threatens our liberties as Americans and is likely to add almost nothing to U.S. economic growth. I have been a longtime critic of the agreement, especially since WikiLeaks obtained a draft of its intellectual …


Trends This Week – Recovery or Recession? Fact or fiction? – 02.03.16

World renowned forecaster Gerald Celente revisits President Obama’s State of the Union address last month when the president stated: “Anyone claiming that America’s economy is in decline is peddling fiction.” Breaking down the fact-based reasons why global recession, one of the Trends Research Institute’s Top Trends of 2016, is inevitable and Obama is the one “peddling fiction,” Celente serves up the facts – growing in number and relevance – to paint a true picture of economies worldwide and what those indicators mean to you.

Exasperation? Why? Because Obama wants recognition for his clever and ingenious manipulations. He …


The Permanent Paranoia of Empire

The unmitigated effrontery of the Senate this month is hard to excel, but President Obama is doing his best to do just that. Over the past week the President has issued a couple of indictments from the Oval Office, both of which involve traditional rivals, Venezuela and Iran. Their sin? Thinking for themselves, a rare condition that must be instantly …
