“When did the future switch from being a promise to being a threat?” ― Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters
Despite our best efforts, we in the American police state seem to be stuck on repeat, reliving the same set of circumstances over and over and over again: egregious surveillance, strip searches, police shootings of unarmed citizens, government spying, censorship, retaliatory arrests, the criminalization of lawful activities, warmongering, indefinite detentions, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture, etc.
WEB Notes: Economic collapse is not the question, when is the question as it always is. If the Federal Reserve continues to raise rates it would seem that is a definite signal the crash will begin.

We’re living in the calm before the storm.
That much everyone can sense. The stock market highs and holiday spending spree will soon be over, the inauguration will presumably go as planned, but that’s when everything could start to go off course.
WEB Notes: Cheap money has fueled this. By cheap money, I mean low to no interest rates set by the Fed has allowed large sums of money to be borrowed at near zero costs fueling much of this. However, we see GM, Ford and many other companies closing factories and laying off workers. This was a constantly theme last year, unfortunately things are not getting better, but worse. When the rates start to rise, we may very well see many of these construction projects halt and those completed never open. Time will tell.
WEB Notes: Everything is a political game. The masses will believe trump scored big when in reality Ford and GM for that matter are suffering big time economically. Read the full article from the source, very informative.
Just 17 days from today, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the nation’s 45th President and deliver his inaugural address. Trump is expected to announce priorities in the areas of education, infrastructure, border security, the economy and curtailing the outsourcing of jobs. But Trump’s agenda will be derailed on all fronts if the big Wall Street banks blow up again as they did in 2008, dragging the U.S. economy into the ditch and requiring another massive taxpayer bailout from a nation already deeply in debt from the last banking crisis. According to a report quietly released by the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Financial Research less than two weeks before Christmas, another financial implosion on Wall Street can’t be ruled out.
Officials in Jackson County, Oregon have again shown their disrespect for private property rights, telling a local couple they must tear out a 40-year-old two-acre pond located on the property they bought two years ago.
WEB Notes: I suppose they believe if they scare you long enough eventually you will believe their lie. They say tensions are at Cold War highs… This has become very cliche. Putin has basically laughed off obama over the entire “election hack”.
