Jim Rickards’ Prediction of Dire Economic Collapse has 8 Days Left Before it Expires

Last month, Peregrin Wood noted the many predictions of “economic expert” Jim Rickards that had gone wrong in the past:

“He’s addicted to predicting imminent doom. He’s quoted in an article from October 2014 as predicting that another ‘Great Recession’ is ‘about to strike.’ In September 2013, however, he told a crowd of potential investors […]

What Was the Exact Moment When Peter Jackson’s Hobbit Movie Series Went Off the Rails?

J. Clifford’s one-image review of the new Hobbit movie by Peter Jackson reminded me that this third movie in the series had come out. I had forgotten, honestly, and that’s saying a lot. I have watched every minute of the making-of footage of each of the three Lord of the Rings movies by Peter Jackson, […]

How to Safely Predict a Disaster

The safest way to predict a disaster is not to predict anything. Kirk Elliott of the Asset Preservation Institute demonstrates the technique in an e-mail blasted out to the world this week:

Americans Elect: 1st Vote Finished Under Suppressed Turnout “Disaster”

Americans Elect has pushed the vote total in its first-ever completed vote down its servers’ memory hole, no longer to be seen by the public.

Mayewski: Climate can change in 1-2 years… and end Civilization

Abrupt climate change in 1-2 years. The end of civilization. It’s not a movie. It’s a lecture by Prof. Paul Mayewski, and you can listen in. […]

Another Explosion on an Oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico

There’s been another explosion on another offshore oil drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. We’ll learn more in the hours to come: it initially looks as though this rig wasn’t drilling at the time, making damage less extensive. Hopefully there is no loss of life.

This latest incident makes even less credible the insistence […]

Disasters That Didn’t Happen: the Doomsayers are Nigh

I remember as a child in the early 1980s watching the PBS science program Nova as a scientist (looking the part with his glasses and wild hair) explained that according to the strict laws of probability, there was a 90% chance of a nuclear weapons accident by 1990. By the year 2000, he explained we […]

$700 Billion Bailout: Monumental Failure in Record Time

Have we ever had so much money shoveled around so widely in a plan that is so quickly called such a failure?

Gabe D. Sums Up the Bush Years

Gabe D. wrote in to us today with a summation of the record of the Bush years and his challenge: should we reward the Republicans for the mess they’ve made marching in lockstep with the Bush disaster parade?

We should be asking. Do the Republicans DESERVE another term after the last 8 years? Should we […]
