Chris Martenson: As The World Burns

Chris Martenson: As The World Burns thumbnail

Decades of unfairness are now boiling over in the United States in the form of protests, riots, burning buildings and violence.

Minneapolis is on fire – literally – and the unrest has spread to numerous other major cities.

Last year (2019) The Yellow Vest protesters in France dealt with enormous amount of police violence and intimidation as they put life and limb on the line to try and wrest better economic and living conditions for themselves.

The people of Hong Kong are back out in force again now that the Coronavirus threat has abated, seeking greater autonomy and control over their own lives. Last year (2019) Chileans also protested, seeking better wages and living conditions.

While the specific demands of each of these movements are unique, they all share common causes.

Our analysis at Peak Prosperity is this: the days of constant exponential growth on a finite planet are drawing to a close. All of the systems that govern the sharing of resources among humans – political, economic and especially financial – are designed to concentrate, not share, wealth.

Taken together, we have an economic pie that is no longer growing but is subject to a set of laws and financial predation that guarantee the wealthy get more than their fair share of what remains.

This leads to increasingly visible, palpable unfairness.

Primates hate that:

In today’s world, it’s grapes for the elites and cucumbers for the rest of us (if we’re even that lucky).

That’s been the model for a long time, but lately it’s been both accelerating and exposed for all to see.

Team Elite™ is busy gorging on grapes. It has granted itself $trillions of freshly printed dollars from the US Federal Reserve in order to prop up ‘their fair share of things’ like bonds, stocks, and derivatives.

That leads to these sorts of jarring headline juxtapositions:

(Source and source)

Without any question whatsoever, the Federal Reserve has been printing up money like crazy and stuffing it into every crevice of the US financial markets in a bid to…well, drive up financial asset prices.

They’ve been extremely tone deaf the entire way while pretending that their aim isn’t to make the rich richer, or deliver fatter profits to banks. Of course, both of those things are indeed happening as a direct result of the Fed’s policies and anybody with eyes can see that — yet the media refuses to acknowledge this.

Really, it’s extremely easy to identify. Here’s what ‘grapes for the wealthy!’ looks like — see that $3 trillion spike since April?

All of that printing leads to some stocks now being at their priciest ratio to earnings ever:

That means that those holding them are being rewarded like never before. And don’t forget that the richest 10% of Americans own over 84% of all stocks

We also see the same price-goosing with bonds. Corporate bonds are now once again approaching historically low yields which means, in the see-saw language of bonds, they are almost as pricey as they’ve ever been. In history:

Who received the benefits of that gigantic cluster of grapes that the Fed has lavished upon the bond markets?

Well, the owners of all those bonds of course, and the major corporations now able to borrow at rock bottom costs even as small and medium sized enterprises are being wiped out.

As I often say, the Fed doesn’t actually create wealth, it redistributes wealth.  While doing that it is both directly and indirectly picking winners and losers.

The above chart of corporate bond yields says the Fed is picking large corporations and the wealthy elite  over small companies and Main Street folks.

Of course, there are no grapes quite as sweet as the ‘special interest’ varietals that are served to only the wealthiest of real estate investors:

The only thing that could make this worse would be for some White House official to condescendingly insult all us regular people by referring to us in non-human terms.

Oops:

(Source)

I have dozens more such examples. But I trust you get the point: the vast unfairness of the US system is now exposed for all to see. And that inequity has become even more predatory in our hour of need during the Covid-19 pandemic. Which is why social frustration and angst are now in the process of boiling over.

The reason why is as old as civilization itself, showing up ever since the first group of humans organized themselves into a cultural pyramid:

People often ask me why I shake my angry monkey-fist at the Federal Reserve so often. It’s because of the above quote. I’m the sort that prefers to avoid unnecessary pain and suffering. The Federal Reserve seems to be institutionally ignorant of the above fatal ailment.

What the Fed is doing is wholly unnecessary and manifestly unfair. It will lead to tears yet, regrettably, it is completely avoidable. Grapes for Wall Street, and cucumbers (or worse) for everyone else. It’s just how they’re wired. They literally cannot help themselves,. So things are certain to get worse before they get better.

It All Boils Over

The institutional failures of the Federal Reserve aside, there are also the obvious failures of management (I can’t bring myself to call them ‘leadership’ anymore) at our major health institutions, politicians who are far quicker to the rescue of major corporations than constituents, politicized and even falsified ‘science’ coming from formerly respected institutions, the list goes on and on.

Every one of these breaches of public trust undermines our collective safety and security. Beyond some incalculable level the foundation gives way.

The lowest level of management in this story are the police. For decades many police departments have been heavily militarized and trained often by Israelis who’ve done a remarkable job embedding the mindset of occupying forces into US policing.

Toss in some unresolved racial biases and animosity, civil asset forfeiture, no-knock raids for petty reasons that routinely result in innocent lives being violently taken, and you’ve got a tinder pile waiting for a spark.

George Floyd was that spark. A particularly callous officer with a long string of unpunished claims of excessive force and violence lodged against him, knelt on George’s neck until he was dead while 3 other officers stood by and casually watched.  Against the backdrop outlined above, this was one flagrant abuse too many.

Editorially, the person now being vetted as a possible VP for the Biden campaign, Amy Klobuchar was the prosecutor in Minneapolis for many years who could have delivered justice to the lower classes. Let’s check her record:

Sadly, this is a record that can be found in hundreds of other cities. It’s neither an uncommon nor a defensible record. As a reminder, in the aftermath of the Michael Brown killing and riots in Ferguson MO (2014) the justice department came in and discovered that in a city of 20,000 mostly poor people there were 16,000 outstanding arrest warrants.  Think about that for a second.

Many for infractions like ‘impeding pedestrian flow’ (a.k.a. standing on the sidewalk). The humans were little more that ATM livestock for the police and court machinery to exploit.

And so, with the killing of George Floyd, Minneapolis exploded.

There’s More Unrest On The Way. Get Prepared.

Welcome everyone to these turbulent times.

We all want to live in a just, fair, and safe world. Some people are born into peaceful times. Others aren’t so lucky. History goes through its turnings.

Well, here we are, smack in the middle of a whopper of a fourth turning. So let’s make the most of it.

I take the safety and security of myself and the people around me very seriously. Because it’s my responsibility I train, and I plan, and I think things through.

My home is in a town I judge to be very safe, and I’m not the fearful sort, so I really have to push myself to prioritize the other steps. Which I am doing because it has to be done.

The calm days are over. There’s a new future coming, one that promises to be a lot more interesting as the old Chinese saying goes.

I wish I believed that the worst of the social unrest was behind us. I don’t. Given the actions of the Fed and Plutarch’s quote, and the total lack of any pushback from the media on these matters, I am anticipating grapes for the elites and worse-than-cucumbers for everyone else for many years to come.

Which means it’s time for you to more seriously consider your approach to personal security, especially if you live in or near a city. I certainly am.

As a true mark of the turning, a growing number of my friends who would never have considered owning a gun before are now thinking about doing so. All sorts of formerly ‘hard’ decisions suddenly become up for grabs when folks start feeling more physically vulnerable.

But personal security is far more than ‘owning a gun.’ It’s a mindset as well as a behavior set. And above all, it’s about avoiding trouble in the first place.

It includes taking sensible steps to protect your home from being an easy target for crime. It means having a plan and well-practiced skills in place to keep yourself and your loved ones safe from violence. It means aligning with neighbors to watch each others’ backs. It means practicing with whatever tools or systems you adopt so that they are second nature to you if you ever have to use them.

For those without extensive experience and training (which I assume is just about everyone reading this), the best presentation I’ve ever seen covering the practical essentials you need to know to maximize your odds of staying safe is this video from Peak Prosperity member Tom C., a 19-year veteran inner city police sergeant, given at our most recent annual seminar:

Here’s a brief 3-minute clip from it in which Tom is fielding Q&A on the audience’s top concerns:

Tom’s full seminar presentation is 48 minutes long and addresses key safety & security issues including how to reduce your threat risk profile, situational awareness, what to do (both mindset and actions) if in danger, how to create “layers” of defenses, as well as good home security options.

    Hey Duncan, is lying about your background, criminal record, education or qualifications a barrier to government service in the uS now? I didn’t know lying about any of those things was considered particularly unusual in amerika, let alone illegal. If lying about your background was actually considered improper in the uS, it would have very difficult, if not impossible, for amerika to fill most senior government posts and positions, or even find enough common soldiers to fill the ranks of its brutal and inept military.

    Lying has long been a cornerstone of public life and military service in amerika, regardless of who happens to sit on the ceremonial White House throne.

    “Why The European Recovery Plan Will Likely Fail”
    https://www.dlacalle.com/en/why-the-european-recovery-plan-will-likely-fail/

    “We cannot ignore the negative impact on industry and employment of the massive “green” policy plans of the euro area of 2004-2018, which caused the countries of the European Union to suffer electricity and natural gas bills for households that are twice as those in the USA, while growth stalled…According to the Bank of International Settlements, the number of zombie companies in Europe has exploded amid stimulus plans. The past is bailed out and the economy is zombified. Another big problem is that the wrong sectors are stimulated while thousands of small companies that have no access to credit or political favour die. It is not a coincidence that the eurozone destroys more innovative companies or prevents them from growing when regulation forces 80% of the real economy to be financed through the banking channel while in the US it does not reach 30%. Can you imagine an Apple or Netflix growing via bank loans? Impossible. Another big problem is the obsession with redistribution. By fiscally penalizing merit and success and sustaining public spending above 40% of GDP at any cost with higher taxes while subsidizing low-productivity sectors, the European Union incurs in a huge malinvestment risk when it rewards the subsidized sectors, or those close to political power while those with high productivity are penalized. It is no coincidence that Europe does not have technological champions. It scares them off by perpetuating the obsolete national champions and penalizing merit remuneration and alternative investment via taxation.”

    “As China PMI Disappoints, Another Major Problem Emerges”
    https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/china-pmi-disappoints-big-problem-emerges

    “Yet even as China’s factories are starting to hum again, a new problem is emerging as executives are now worried that the rebound could falter on weak demand both at home but especially abroad, something we warned about some time ago when we warned that China’s push to produce at all costs will eventually backfire…The disconnect between China’s recovering production and still dormant demand had shown up in data revealing a rise in inventories and once again contradicting the official PMI numbers which as noted above, show that to be easing. China’s fake data aside, the worry remains that sustained overproduction will lead China’s factories to keep cutting prices, compounding global deflationary headwinds and worsening trade tensions, before they eventually cut back on production and therefore even more jobs. “The supply normalization has already outpaced demand recovery,” said Yao Wei, China economist at Societe Generale SA. “In other words, the recovery so far is a deflationary recovery.” Which is another way of saying it is not a recovery at all, and the US, whose economy remains largely shut is not helping…The best summary of China’s “big problem” came from Viktor Shvets, head of Asian strategy at Macquarie Commodities and Global Markets: “At the end of the day, China’s economy is driven by demand and right now there is no demand,” A scenario where manufacturers capacity originally dedicated to the export market is retooled to produce for the home market instead would still lead to overproduction. Then the supply-demand mismatch would end up adding to deflationary pressures and a pose fresh headwinds to economic growth, according to Bo Zhuang, chief China economist at research firm TS Lombard.”

    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/01/politics/trump-white-house-racial-unrest-leadership/index.html

    No it doesn’t. Trump should use the last months of his presidency to initiate the breakup of his country, in order to protect his white electorate from a bolshevik takeover, just like Milosevic used his presidency to break-up Yugoslavia and serve Serb interests. No need for American elections in November, if there is no America left.

    “your Europe is in decline.”

    Really? Define “decline”. We won with everything. We have beaten you in aviation, renewable energy, IT-hardware, trains, agriculture. We have larger surpluses than China. We have nuclear armed Russia waiting in the wings. We have the euro in place. We have an increased EU-budget. We have nukes. In a couple of years we’ll be the new #1. Like we always were until you showed up, uncle Schmull’s goyim.

    Whatever.

    The steam won’t stop venting until the bolsheviks have whitey destroyed. Forget it. You are heading for a fight you can’t avoid, even if you desire so.

    “Life is quiet around here. No problems for me.”

    Of course it is, because you live in 95% white hick country. You want to avoid it, but you unintentionally, indirectly admit that race is very well the problem. Tellingly you had no flight path to Nigeria, you had one to ultra-white Italy, but that one is now probably in jeopardy, because of your wife. Look, I am not going to gloat about your personal misfortune, but your hypocrisy I am very well going to attack.

    The white race, since 1933, had a little Anglo-Zionist problem. That problem is now going to be solved, if necessary the hard way. If necessary with China, indirectly serving European geopolitical interests, just like the USSR indirectly served US interests 1941-1945.

    Geopolitics is not for the faint-hearted.

    “Mass unemployment the new normal in SE Asia”
    https://asiatimes.com/2020/05/mass-unemployment-the-new-normal-in-se-asia/

    “The percentage of work hours lost in the second quarter in Southeast Asia was 10%, compared to 10.7% globally, the ILO report estimated. In many ways, however, Southeast Asia’s official unemployment rates don’t tell the full picture. That’s especially true in mainland Southeast Asia, where only a small portion of the workforce is employed in the formal economy where workers are contracted by registered businesses and paid regular wages… With mounting unemployment and collapsing economies, most people are already cutting back on expenses and trying to save whatever earnings they can muster. That means there is less money circulating around domestic economies, either in the form of household consumption or business investment, that could spur new economic activity and create new jobs.”

    “Whatever…And everybody with a brain in Europe knows it:” https://www.rt.com/news/387313-us-losing-leadership-eu-mogherini/”

    Cloggo using the anti-American RT as his source. Of course, it is going to echo his derangement.

    “The steam won’t stop venting until the bolsheviks have whitey destroyed. Forget it. You are heading for a fight you can’t avoid, even if you desire so. “

    Next week it will be fine cloggo then what are you going to whine about. You whines for 3 years all day long about Brexit and look where you are at no. LMFAO at the failure.

    “Of course it is, because you live in 95% white hick country. You want to avoid it, but you unintentionally, indirectly admit that race is very well the problem.”

    Cloggo, much of the country is quiet except for the blue liberal enclaves with pissed off blacks force fed identity politics. These liberals are getting some of the side effects of their failed policies. People like Idaho are getting what they deserve.

    “Tellingly you had no flight path to Nigeria, you had one to ultra-white Italy, but that one is now probably in jeopardy, because of your wife. Look, I am not going to gloat about your personal misfortune, but your hypocrisy I am very well going to attack.”

    Not much happening in Italy. Economy is in bad shape. Nothing to brag about there.

    “The white race, since 1933, had a little Anglo-Zionist problem. That problem is now going to be solved, if necessary the hard way. If necessary with China, indirectly serving European geopolitical interests, just like the USSR indirectly served US interests 1941-1945.”

    “Facing its deepest recession since World War II and with business confidence collapsing, the coronavirus pandemic is hitting Italy’s economy hard. Business confidence in the eurozone’s third largest economy in May plummeted to its lowest level since official statistics institute ISTAT started the index in March 2005…A million jobs threatened Italy was the first European country to be hit by the pandemic and imposed a strict two-month lockdown which paralysed much of the country’s economic activity. As a result, the country is set for a drop in GDP of between nine and 13 percent, the Bank of Italy said on Friday. Data also showed that the economy shrank 5.3 percent in the first quarter — worse than the 4.7 percent initially estimated.”

    I always was in favor of circular agriculture, local food production (I am practicing it myself), renewable energy, basic income, public transport (autonomous driving vans) at the cost of private car ownership.

    The “other cheek religion” in action.

    Christianity is a cancer, a religion for spineless cowards and crybabies.

    Complete anarchy in Philadelphia, police cars fair game:

    Philadelphia is best pushed into the Atlantic. If not, turn it into the next Haiti.

    About the death of George F.:

    “We demand a recount – Floyd’s family seek independent autopsy after death in custody– news.com. “An independent medical examiner has been hired by George Floyd’s legal team for an autopsy after one conducted by the county pathologist revealed ‘no physical findings that support a diagnosis of strangulation’” “Mr Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive artery disease.” In the 911 call that drew police, the caller described him as “awfully drunk” and “not in control of himself”.”

    There is no medical proof that Floyd was strangled to death. The criminal was a medical basket case already. The family obviously doesn’t take no for an answer.

    Bullshit, for you growth and greater prosperity is the name of the game and for some reason you think this is only for Europe. Your agenda is fucked, cloggo. You are another one I have moderated and neutered and it has been very enjoyable.

    Mass looting in NYC by the usual suspects: anonymouse types. The sort of people you resolutely keep away from your society.

    You can see the sadness about the death of George F. on their faces, to the tune that they obviously need 5 minutes of “proletarian shopping” to overcome their grief.

    Fortunately Europe is world class when it comes to deportation of dangerous elements. Once we have US ass from our faces, expect the cleanup in continental Europe to begin in earnest.

    George Soros is already persona non grata in Eastern Europe. Won’t be long until an arrest warrant will be issued in the whole of Europe for his ilk. The victory of historic revisionism will be next. Won’t look good for the Soros bunch AT ALL.

    Donnie has many admirable aspects, but he is not YET the real deal:

    That will be an inconvenient fact for the criminal extremist ,liberal skumbags. I have noticed juanPee is not using his liberal personality socks much lately. LMFAO. The MOBster is quiet about antifa now that it is a terrorist org. Idahoe look as stupid as ever. This unmoderated form is so much fun with all the lunatics here to fuck with.

    How big is “mass” cloggo? Are you trying to embellish things and blow them out of proportion as usual?

    “Team Elite™ is busy gorging on grapes.”

    Last I checked, Chris Martenson is effectively a wealth-management consultant. In other words, a 1%er serving the needs/fears of other 1%ers. So I don’t think he has a lot of credibility stoking class warfare–in fact it’s bad for his business.

    Martenson is doing great:
