    On today's show, we're taking a romp through history.
    Right now, the global economy is in the middle of a massive transition. Technological innovation is exploding, and all of our institutions have struggled to keep up with it.
    The institutions have tried to keep control of society and the systems that connect all of us. But the nature of innovation is that you can't control it.
    So then all of the turmoil we're seeing today should make sense. It's a natural consequence of people trying to save the old economy.
    But now it's time for us to embrace the new economy.
    The future is going to look very different. However, we're already seeing some clues.
    And, ironically, we must study the past to understand what the future holds.
    Your future prosperity will depend upon you seeing what's happening and understanding exactly how to proceed.
    Because the future prosperity of the country hinges on just how many of us take advantage of the opportunities in front of us.
    True change doesn't start in Washington. So whomever is elected in November won't dictate the success of your future.
    That's up to you.
    Today, we'll discuss what the past economy tells us about the future.

    The Tyranny of Amazon

    The Tyranny of Amazon

    What a weekend!
    The 24-hour news cycle never sleeps, and 4th of July weekend was no exception. It was a full moon and a partial lunar eclipse, so maybe that explains why everyone is losing their minds. At this point, we should really be willing to consider just about anything!
    Terry Crews is getting canceled for being a decent human being. Apparently he's a white supremacist because he doesn't want to divide people along racial lines.
    Meanwhile, a black nationalist militia calling themselves the Not F***ing Around Coalition issued a challenge to white nationalists in Georgia: either come out and fight us, or join us in demonstrating against the government.
    Speaking of rebelling against the government...
    The residents of southern California delivered a gigantic middle finger to the state and local governments.
    Fireworks were outlawed for 4th of July. But everyone responded by spending all of Saturday evening lighting them off all across the city. The aerial shots were amazing.
    Oh, and Kanye West announced he's running for president.
    But the focus of our show today is a couple of downright silly articles.
    Zero Hedge published an article from Morgan Stanley saying that mass unemployment is actually good because stock market go up!
    And Vox pushed out some characteristic drivel about how evil Amazon is because they… employ too many people?
    It's a full show today, folks!
    As always, listen and then please share the show. I know that you know someone who needs to hear this message.

    No 4th of July Celebrations, But Feel Free to Protest!

    No 4th of July Celebrations, But Feel Free to Protest!

    Science is dead.
    At least it is in America. It's been replaced by a bizarre state religion.
    In the new post-science America, celebrating the 4th of July with some friends at home spreads a deadly virus. But feel free to gather thousands deep in the streets!
    That is, if you're part of one of the officially sanctioned protests.
    If you protest the fact that you can't celebrate the 4th of July, that'll spread the virus. So that's not allowed.
    In fact, if you decide to go to church to celebrate the land of the free this weekend, keep in mind that singing in church is now verboten.
    But that's not even the most insane news of the week.
    Perhaps the wildest story you'll read is this one. Leaders at Michigan State University forced the vice president of research and innovation to step down. Why? For daring to cite research that they considered racist.
    That's right, facts are officially racist!
    If you've listened to this show for any length of time, you're by now familiar with our refrain: you must control the source of your income. Your wealth is your freedom.
    Each passing day proves us more and more right.
    On that note, have a happy 4th, and try not to run afoul of the mob!

    We Have A Financial Depression Coming

    The lockdowns are coming. Again.

    It doesn't matter that deaths are down 90% from where they were at the height of the "first wave." It doesn't matter that the US is now testing 500,000 people per day. Total cases are increasing! Gotta shut everything down!

    Millions of workers were laid off in March. Right when they thought things were finally getting back to normal, state and local governments are forcing them out of work again.

    If there was just one lockdown, a recession would have been unavoidable. It would have been bad. But a second lockdown will be catastrophic. This is permanently altering the landscape of the US economy.

    If you've listened to this show for any length of time, you can consider yourself one of the lucky ones. You've seen it coming. Because we've talked about it for years. You've had time to prepare.

    Now is the time for action. Your future depends upon it. Your family's future depends upon it.

    A full-scale depression is now inevitable. Millions will thrive in spite of it.

    Will you be one of them?

    The Next 6 Months: What To Expect

    America is going full funny farm now.

    L'Oreal has vowed to remove all forms of "whitening" from their skin products, because that will apparently end racism.

    Mike Henry, a middle-aged white guy, stepped down from voicing a black character on the TV show Family Guy. The Simpsons finally declared that white actors will only voice their white characters. (Aren't ALL Simpsons characters non-white?) And other white actors are apologizing for voicing non-white characters.

    If this all sounds super racist to you, you aren't alone.

    What started as protests against police brutality has morphed into something completely insane. And it doesn't seem to be going away any time soon.

    However, we did see a new development last night. Another mob of "peaceful protestors" broke into a private gated community in St Louis. They didn't expect to run into two wealthy armed lawyers (married lawyers, at that!), but that's exactly who confronted them.

    Mark and Patricia McCloskey, owners of the first home along the mob's path into the community, stood barefoot on their porch armed with a rifle and a pistol, and demanded that the protestors continue on their way. It's an image that will likely end up as one of the most iconic shots of 2020.

    If only all of this foolishness was the extent of the news.

    Unfortunately, no one is talking about the financial crisis rapidly bearing down on us.

    You Think COVID Was Bad? Here's What's Next

    You Think COVID Was Bad? Here's What's Next

    The hypocrisy of the corporate press reaches new heights every week.

    First they were horrified that Americans dared go to the beach when states started ending lockdowns. We're in a pandemic! How could anyone POSSIBLY think that it's a good idea to spend time getting fresh air and sunshine?!

    People dared to question their moral superiors in the media. They decided to protest the lockdowns, and the press treated them like dangerous criminals.

    Then a white police officer murdered George Floyd.

    And suddenly mass protests in the streets were a moral imperative of the highest order.

    In fact, even so-called "public health experts" fell all over themselves to tell us--from their ivory towers--that white supremacy is SO DANGEROUS even the worst pandemic in recent history shouldn't keep us inside.

    Now, suddenly, COVID is on the rise again!

    However, don't worry. It's not because of the tens of thousands of people rioting in the streets. Per the so-called experts, there's "no evidence" the Black Lives Matter protests caused the spike in COVID cases.

    Rather, it's because of Trump rallies (which we're also required to mock for their low attendance).

    Do you get it yet? Every day, the corporate press is feeding you a crock of propagandistic bovine manure. If you don't see it already, you're probably a hopeless case.

    Unfortunately, all of these double standards will actually cause real harm to people. Nobody knows who or what to trust.

    And now we're staring at a threat that completely dwarfs the COVID pandemic.
