Similar predictions were made about TARP when it was first rolled out, and then quantitative easing as it was practiced for most of a decade after. So far, there hasn't been any explosion of inflation. Probably because of the extreme economic conditions that these measures were trying to counter-act. The pandemic is also producing some pretty extreme economic conditions. Don't count your disaster

And many, many 'lefty' journalists have recognized that. Here are articles by just a few: Quote Is the Anti-Racism Training Industry Just Peddling White Supremacy? By Jonathan Chait ... One way to understand this thinking is to place it on a spectrum of thought about race. On the far right is open white supremacy, which instructs white people to fight for their interests as white pe

Yet another lawsuit has been filed against Fox News alleging sexual harassment and outright assault. The complaint is so graphic that it begins with a warning: "This document contains highly-graphic information of a sexual nature, including sexual assault." The targets of the complaint, other than the Fox News Corp itself? Several people who have been working there since the days of Ro

Waco was a BATF debacle, at least initially. Another 'dregs of government' bunch. The FBI didn't do themselves any favors in their clumsy attempt to recover the mess, though. BATF has been a sh*tshow since forever. That agency has roots under various names going all the way back to the very earliest days of the US Govt. They were originally alchohol tax collectors, and thus called "the reven

Once upon a time, honest political activists would coordinate -- with the local government where they planned to demonstrate if possible -- but sometimes that was not possible due to hostility of the establishment. At the least, they would train for their demonstrations. Learn how to manage their own group and keep the inevitable trouble-makers out. Rioters are just naturally attracted to any opp

You are probably thinking of Wilson. After he had a stroke on October 2, 1919 -- more than a year before the 1920 election -- he basically went into seclusion within the White House. He was seriously affected, and honestly should have recognized that he was incapacitated and resigned. Instead he hung on, and his wife, Edith, was one of the main conduits for anyone else to communicate with him. (H

It's a graphical image that attempts to relate the undulating shadow along the steps of a Mayan pyramid to some sort of cyclic process in human evolution. No evidence is given for the dates or the 'cycle' itself, in my estimation.

Really? Cite some of these experts. I'd really like to see who thinks that Eleanor ran the country while Franklin was recovering from Polio in 1921-25 before he was elected. It helps to know something about the history you are trying to distort.

The annual US defense budget is $600-700 billion. It's not pocket change, though it is very much within the capacities of the Federal government. The critical point is that selling off treasuries is not about the US Federal budget, it's about the world market for government treasuries. The economy of the entire world, the annual "World Gross Output", is around $80 trillion, or was b

Weird, if it really is going down as described. "Extracting an asset" in public when he could just walk away from the event and go home if his mission was done, doesn't make sense. Giving the game away when the manipulation is still in progress is not going to improve the effect.

Cheer up, read some George Will: Quote The nation is in a downward spiral. Worse is still to come.

What, seal yourself in with the duct tape and plastic sheeting, then read books and live on MREs? Would that work in Florida? I'd think the heat would be unbearable. A/C needs access to the outside air, and electricity. You'd need an airlock of some sort to accept mail (utility bills, at the least) and send out bill payments, too. :)

Summary: About 10 million people lost their homes over a period of 2-3 years in the "Great Recession" of 2007-2009. Now we could see up to 28 million people in danger of losing their homes by the end of this year. (Allowing for some delays due to court proceedings. In fact, the crisis will hit when the extended unemployment benefits end and the eviction moratoriums end, just a few weeks

Assuming there is NOT a catastrophic failure, you could possibly argue that the dam was still a success. A slowing of the rate of flooding downstream would allow more time to evacuate people and save some lives. But if it fails and sends a huge pulse of water bigger than anything that has occurred before into the lower Yangtse, there will be flooding in areas that have never been flooded -- at le

And if the water is still rising, they are not gonna be able to save it. It's one of the worlds tallest and longest gravity dams. Meaning it relies on the mass of the dam itself to hold back the water. As the height of water behind the dam increases, the pressure on the dam increases exponentially. Similar earthquakes happened, and still happen, around the Aswan dam in Egypt, btw. Again, it's the

That raises some interesting issues. Are addicts able to maintain 'social distancing' while procuring their daily fix? Are enough masks available for people who must be out on the street for illegal activities? There may be people forced into withdrawal because they are afraid of the risks of continuing their habit.

It was classified as a respiratory virus because that's how it was discovered. Respiratory diseases have a known set of symptoms, and it was easy to recognize. But more and more evidence is emerging that it can attack many more systems in the body than just the lungs. In some people it directly destroys red blood cells. That's what malaria does, though obviously by a different means. Very nasty.

Yes, the opioid crisis is still with us. It's been fairly steady since Trump's election, not subsiding but not exploding anymore. Until the new virus broke just about everything in our society.

All the major media outlets have gotten copies of the book. It's only a matter of time before the full text leaks online, if it has not already. Looks like Trump has failed to block it, even if there is no official publication.

Sometimes alternative science is based on real evidence, but is misinterpreting. This was certainly the case with Velikovsky. He may have actually set back the recognition of catastrophic events being more common than the science of the time had accepted through his deliberate controversialist approach.

Is this a joke? Not only that particular prediction, but the idea that there could BE a prediction in this year. Maybe "the Big One" (earthquake of 8.0 or greater) will hit California before the election, and what remains of their economy will be wiped out.

Yes, they are modeled on things in the environment the child grows up in. Not just their parents, though parents are usually the major influence. But many things from other sources can provide ideas and images to be adopted as basic foundations of the personality. Peers, media personalities, all sorts of things.
