Breaking Down the Political Messages

There is a lot of hidden messaging and programming coming from the left and right of the political spectrum.  We are living in “Spin City” where the message is easier to swallow and minds harder to change and influence than ever.  With upcoming elections in the United States having such a huge potential impact to American and global futures we all need to pay attention to what we say and quickly discern the true intent of what we hear.  The reason I say “quickly” is that we are bombarded by information from a variety of sources, typically by ones that we “trust”.


Trust can mean that the source passes by our cognitive “filters” that normally detect lies and allow truth to pass in.  Without detection of non-truth we can find ourselves bathed in information that feels right but does not pass the scratch test if and when logical examination is applied.  Such is the messaging and political positioning of our day.  Over the past fifty years the science of psychology has gradually progressed to the point where specialists can craft language and messaging that is designed to keep us on the straight and narrow and reinforce our beliefs.

Secular Bear Market Is Not Over History

Secular bear markets refer to economic conditions where stocks, real estate, commodities and the general economy are extremely volatile with a downward bias. This is caused by underlying fundamental forces of excesses that were created for long periods of time in the previous growth cycle. Secular bear markets differ from cyclical bear markets due to the fact that they have a long-running (15 to 22 year range) and well established fundamental and cycle driven downward trajectory in markets.


They result in a change of behavior and perception among society towards investments and the financial system.


This article will examine the last two secular bear markets that have occurred in the modern/post industrialized world economy.

Mr. President – Consider this

Mr. President, I am admittedly no diplomat; but I was born and raised in Lebanon, I became a U.S. citizen in building my own firm on Wall Street, and I have access to intelligence sources as part of my work monitoring the global oil markets that are shaped by OPEC and the Middle East.


So herewith, some candid advice from a Wall Street financier who truly cares about America’s role in the world and have been at Middle East geopolitics for a couple of decades now.


For a starter, I believe any successful strategy should consist of tackling all 10 fronts below at the same time… Anything short of that will not be effective. Indecisiveness and “leading from behind” brought us here. Our sworn enemies like Iran and its puppet Assad are not going to help us.

Wake up folks…. It’s all about Big Oil’s

Wake up folks…. It is high time to realize that the whole Syrian shenanigan was nothing but Assad getting in the crosshairs between his ally Putin and his Arab foes’ interests (Qatar and Saudi Arabia).


All the rest is for the birds… no matter what the US media leads you to believe.


No one gives a rat’s ass about 120,000 people dying or Assad playing with his toys…. It’s all about money, oil and power….. Very unfortunate state of affairs but true.


The fact of the matter is that Assad refused to sign a proposed agreement with Qatar that would run a pipeline from the latter’s North field, contiguous with Iran’s South Pars field, through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and on to Turkey, with a view to supply European markets – albeit crucially bypassing Russia.


Assad’s rationale was “to protect the interests of his Russian ally, which is Europe’s top supplier of natural gas.
