Eurasianism, Dugin and Ukraine (Part 1)

“Putin is trying to reassemble the Soviet Union.” “Putin is out of control.” “Putin is Hitler.” “Putin is Satan.”  More than likely, people are just repeating what the talking box in the living room told them.  What most don’t know is that there is a very valid reason why these claims may, in fact, be true (well, except for the Satan part).

Double Jeopardy

If you've been playing along at home, you know that today was the day that the pennants closed and, to no surprise, they broke to the downside. Well, if you thought that was fun and you'd like to do it again, wait till you see what's coming next.

Killing Time

One look at these updated charts and you'll see why there's really not much to discuss this morning.

Guest Post: "Breaking Bad (Debt), by Jim Quinn

Two weeks ago, Jim Quinn wrote a definitive, four-part series on "The Fourth Turning" and the works of Strauss and Howe. Jim is back this week with a comprehensive, three-part expose on the looming, continued debt crisis and how this unsustainable system is certain to crash again in the near future.


Just like the post from a few days ago. However this time, instead of "different day", are we staring down the barrel of "same sh*t, different week"?

The Fog of War

We are already in the middle of a very real information and psychological war between two of the world's largest powers.  And as I understand the conflict, BOTH sides view the war as an existential struggle--and both sides are playing deceptively and unethically.

Welcome to the fog of war.
