Trump must divest or put every business asset he owns in a blind trust or the Republic is doomed The most critical issue is not getting the attention it deserves. A head of state who keeps his businesses when he is inaugurated is a man who is for sale to the highest bidder. This cannot be allowed. Now is the time to stop his attempts to avoid a clean brak.

Question Received Wisdom; Learn What We Don't Know, And Let the Chips Fall Where They May Can you stomach received wisdom? I can't. This article is about what is wrong with the world's economy and recommends authors who know the answer and two of their books that can help us to learn what Wall Street doesn't want us to know. We can't propose changes in our system if we don't know what we don't know. The truth has been known for 5000 years. It's time we were told.

About that QE "lending" that has been paid off (NOT) This article exposes the lie Chris Cuomo told last night during the Town Hall with Jill Stein. The lie was first invented by Wall Street to mitigate their outrageous use of the money to pay their henchmen.

Business cycles--Why they occur and how to avoid them This article exposes the fraud that is impoverishing us. Dr. Michael Hudson's books and website gives us the answer. We need to understand this. It's a Ponzi scheme that was being used in the con game that John Perkins participated in as an economic hit man and is now being used on us.

The Fatal Flaw of Our Fiat Monetary System The Federal Reserve System and the US Treasury have used a smoke and mirrors story to explain QE. The story is obviously phony, and it is an example of the (deliberate) fatal flaw in the design of the system.

The Trouble With Cash--a World Awash in $100 Federal Reserve Notes Small amounts of cash are useful for buying a loaf of bread or the Sunday newspaper. But cash transactions on a large scale are useful only to people who have something to hide. Large amounts of cash encourage crime of all sorts, from muggings to illegal arms and drug sales. The amount of US cash in Europe alone amounts to thousands of dollars for every American. Who does this serve?

You had no idea what you were agreeing to when you signed a mineral lease. If you did you'd have told them to get out This article is about urban gas drilling in the first large urban field in the nation, Fort Worth, Texas. But lest you think it doesn't apply to you, think again. It will be coming to a shale bed gas field near you soon.

Conspiracy Theories vs. Conspiracies and the Case of the World Trade Center It is time to put away the official U. S. government conspiracy theory regarding the demise of the World Trade Center buildings and proceed from the observable facts of the case. There is much critically important work yet to be done before this case can be closed. This course of action is necessary survival of our nation.

"Small is Beautiful-Economics as if People Mattered" I first read this book by E. F. Schumacher in 1976. A few days ago I picked it up again. I wondered if I'd see it in a different light more than 30 years later. I was amazed that the forecasts Schumacher had made had mostly come true in the interim. Globalization proponents will find much food for thought in this piece.

People or Profit-- The Urban Gas Wars We are experiencing a new phenomenon in Texas, a collision of gas drilling and production interests with the needs of urban dwellers. Texas laws were not written for this new situation, and for various reasons the Texas Railroad Commission, the state legislature, and city governments have not dealt with the issues. This struggle is setting a precedent for urban drilling all over the US. Read and heed.

Another Ineffective e-Voting Reform Bill that Solves Nothing Why the hell do arrogant legislators keep bringing up ideas like this that they should know by now are flawed and not the best solution proposed by the scientists who have studied this for years? Is it arrogance, or is it a deliberate nod to an industry whose performance can only be interpreted as criminal fraud?

Moral Hazard, the Oath of Office, and Treason It is the thesis of this essay that the creation and/or defense of laws and policies which create a moral hazard whose costs are borne by society at large is a violation of the oath of office, tantamount to treason, and should be so regarded by the justice system.
