In the depths of the 2008–09 financial crisis, Obama’s first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, remarked that one should never let a good crisis go to waste. You probably recall him saying that. He was referring to the fact that crises may be temporary but hidden agendas are permanent. The global elites and deep state actors always […]
We’re at the end of the longest boom in history, and the debt levels and budget deficits of many of the world’s leading countries are far beyond anything the world has ever witnessed.
