Is Social Security Website Telling You the Whole Truth?

Bottom-line up-front: The government’s only capital asset is you. The solution [in practice] to trust fund solvency means more taxes, a reduced standard of living, or both. Debt-based Ponzi schemes never end well.

There is a page on the Social Security website entitled Trust Fund FAQ. I highly recommend reading this page firsthand. For brevity, I’ll share a few sections for the purpose of this discussion.

  • What are the social security trust funds? The Social Security Trust Funds are the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance (OASI) and the Disability […]

Executive Order on Election Interference To Sanction US and Foreign Persons

Bottom-line up-front: President Trump’s Executive Order (EO) issued September 12, 2018 is a game changer for [real] election interference. While most people are busy riding the daily emotional roller coaster of Mainstream Media (MSM), this EO is where the REAL action is taking place.

On September 12th, 2018, President Trump issued an Executive Order. Do you know about it? Have you read it? If you’re a consumer of Mainstream Media (MSM) news, chances are you haven’t heard about it. Or possibly […]

Student Loan Debt Causes Rethink of College, Loans, Life

Bottom-line up-front: Student loan debt equals time when calculated against your potential lifespan. When life is being delayed [up to] 10 years after graduation for some college students (because of debt). When debt transfers away years of potential wealth accumulation from the accounts of the many – into the accounts of the few. Maybe its time to rethink debt, college and life.

Move Over Fake News Student Loan Debt is Real

Against the backdrop of ever-increasing fake news (propaganda) of imaginary sources, books based on weaponized innuendo, paid protesters caught on camera, and circus-like antics at […]

Germany Wants Replacement SWIFT System

Bottom-line up-front: In the absence of credible economic arguments, Germany’s foreign minister, Heiko Maas, is making political threats disguised as economic arguments. Assuming US market access remains important to EU companies, business will continue to trump political arguments in the foreseeable future.

Reuters, Financial Times, ZeroHedge and others reported that Germany is calling for a global payment system independent of the US.

An Alternative SWIFT System?

Germany’s foreign minister, Heiko Maas, recently advocated for the creation of a new payments system independent of the US. He believes a new SWIFT-like […]

Figuring Out What’s Real or Not Without Censorship

Bottom-line up-front: The anti-censorship Tweet released August 24th by President Trump will be a defining message going forward. Because people really do have to figure out what is real, and what is not, without censorship! It’s a sad day when control over how the swamp is managed, and purged, descends into totalitarian censorship efforts. You have a mind and you have common sense. Use them both. Because if you fail to stand up for freedom of speech now. You are limiting yourself, your children and future generations from what they will be […]

Non-Disclosure Agreements: Punishment Awaits Violators of High-Profile NDAs

Bottom-line up-front: Journalists sensationalize (supposedly) defiant people who have disregarded (often for political motives) non-disclosure agreements they lawfully entered into. Whether its a former “model”, white house staffer, or department head, understand these individuals are already in serious trouble. Even though politically expedient rhetoric seems to give these individuals a pass – make no mistake – consequences await down the road. When the media lights have dimmed (or gone dark). And those who would encourage such individuals to skirt (or flagrantly violate) the law are no longer by their side. When there’s no one left to egg them on […]
