I would include myself in that group, which is why I hope that President Trump expands his economics team by adding more experienced, top-notch economists who can help him navigate this unprecedented and potentially-catastrophic crisis. This isn't the time for the B Team

Putin says 'the rich must pay' for the corona-virus Vladimir Putin has decided how Russia is going to pay for the corona-virus. He's going to tax the rich. It's a remedy that most Americans would support if they were given the choice, but they weren't asked. Instead, Congress passed a $2 trillion stimulus package for which the American taxpayer will be held entirely responsible.

Welcome to Sweatshop Amerika! The next bailout will be our last Imagine if the Central Bank was given the green-light to devour the Treasury, control the country's "purse strings", and use nation's taxing authority to shore up its trillions in ultra-risky leveraged bets, its opaque financially-engineered ponzi-instruments, and its massive speculative debts

The "Repo" Fiasco; the Fed's Cash Injections Send Stocks Soaring The greatest threat posed by the Fed's reckless "repo" policy is not the threat of another giant asset bubble but the possibility that US Treasuries will lose their exalted role as the world's preeminent "risk free" asset of choice.

Judgment Day for John Brennan The agents and officials who conducted this seditious attack on the presidency never thought they'd be held accountable for their crimes. But they were wrong, and now their day of reckoning is fast approaching. The main players in this palace coup are about to be exposed, criminally charged and prosecuted. Some of them will probably wind up in jail.

Trump Did NOT Convince Kim to Ditch His Nukes. China Did Donald Trump thinks his "maximum pressure" campaign persuaded North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. But it's a bunch of baloney. The reason Kim Jong-un is planning to denuclearize is because China adamantly opposes nuclear weapons on the peninsula. That's the whole deal in a nutshell.

Washington's Century-Long War on Russia Washington's war on Russia has ebbed and flowed depending on the political situation in Moscow -- it has never completely ended. The US has always treated Russia with suspicion, contempt and brutality. During the Cold War, when Russia's global activities put a damper on Washington's depredations around the world, relations remained stretched to the breaking point.

If There's a War in Korea, Blame Trump The United States has never lifted its sanctions on North Korea, never treated their leaders with anything except contempt and brutality, and never made any sincere attempt to end the hostilities. Washington will not even sit down with a delegation from the DPRK to air their differences or discuss a path forward.

Turkish Invasion Pits Neocons Against Traditional Imperialists The present disaster that is unfolding in the Afrin canton in Syria's northwest corner could have been avoided had the Trump administration abstained from announcing that it planned a permanent military presence in east Syria, which implied its tacit support for an independent Kurdish state. This, in fact, was the trigger for the current crisis, the provocation that set the dominoes in motion.

Washington Widens the War in Syria by Provoking Turkey On January 18, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced the creation of a 30,000-man Border Security Force (BSF) to occupy East Syria. Tillerson's announcement may have prompted some unexpected apologies and back-tracking, but the policy remains the same.
