    Al, said recently that Hillary would be the next President, but Al also said about 3 months ago that Jeb Bush wouldn’t be the Republican candidate, I just don’t know what is happening here, other then to say stay tuned, I don’t expect to see any changes in Washington no matter what happens. It will be one or the other.

          Shad says:

          Look, all presidents and their cabinets are picked from the political clubs: The Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission are the two big ones (almost all the politicians of note for the last 30 years have come from these two David Rockefeller-created clubs. There there is the Bohemian grove with Nixon and Reagan and the Bushes wearing hooded robes in California in front of a giant Owl idol. Then you got the club of Skull and Bones that puts cronies into political positions, like when both Bush vs John Kerry were both prior members and running against each other for president. Thats the same with Papa Bush and Prescott Bush (Gramps). They don’t get rid of these people, they just redeploy them. Look at John Kerry now replacing a Clinton. The candidates come from cute and sinister political clicks, and with the exception of Ron Paul and a few rogue politicians, they are all in bed together.

    Some Characteristics Of Fascism

    Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

    Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights – Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

    . Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause – The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

    Supremacy of the Military – Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

    Controlled Mass Media – Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

    . Obsession with National Security – Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

    Corporate Power is Protected – The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

    . Labor Power is Suppressed – Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

    Obsession with Crime and Punishment – Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

    . Rampant Cronyism and Corruption – Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

    . Fraudulent Elections – Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

    They ever going to count those Ron Paul votes?

    Well, I always have time for Bob Moriarty and hearing his voice reminds me that this is the Korelin Economics Report, not the Koreleon Economics Report. 🙂

    I didn’t have the time or the stomach to watch the Shillary press conference or whatever it was. I didn’t even know it was happening.

    As far as Shillary is concerned she is about as power hungry as they come.

    She will say anything, do anything and step on anyone to become Prez.

    LPG says:

    As often, Bob made some spot on comments. And fwiw, I totally concur with the point about end of empires.

    In imaginary terms, if the head is sick… how can the rest of the body be healthy? It applies to any organization, and to any country.

    As an outsider, I have to say one things, and with a smile though….
    How can so many smart US citizens “fight” over the Democrats/Republican partisanship issue ?
    To me, quite frankly, it’s pointless as I believe, fwiw, that neither camp will do or does a better job than the other because of:
    1) the massive incompetence of most (not all) elected officials within the ranks of both parties
    2) the growing tendency of the gvt to grow larger (a supreme socialist disease that doesn’t say its name) and restricting individual freedoms/rights (a typical facist diseases)
    3) the overall lack of willingness of the political class to tackle real issues such as debt and entitlements (a task kindly transferred to the Fed in the US and to the ECB in Europe)
    4) education is still a(n expensive) joke so most citizens “don’t get” what’s going on (although I suspect more and more are waking-up)
    5) the arms/defense conglomerate is still keeping the upper hand – something which will imho slowly lose its influence as the US global military leadership just slowly fades away.

    My 2cts.

    You know when a politician say’s they do not choose to run for President that it is done with a devious meaning, meanwhile behind the scenes they are efficiently corralling delegates. But the public is only thinking of owning the latest gadget from apple, “The Dick Tracy watch. Wow, what a cynic or am I a realist.

    Absolutely one of, if not the best interviews that Greg Hunter has ever had on his site in my opinion.

    Warren Pollock has been a man I have followed for a number of years. He is one of the best minds anywhere. Pollock is a deep thinker on a vast scale that gauges the big picture macro world view as well as just about anyone.

    If you want to hear the unbridled truth about what humans have been reduced too, and more specifically what American’s have effectively become, he has two great names for them in his two tier breakdown.

    Take 30 minute out of your day and become enlightened to the truth from a man that has worked in the belly of the beast.

      JMiller says:


      Sorry but I personally did not get much out of this interview. Probably because some of the things talked about were not of interest to me and probably because sometimes I had a hard time following what Warren Pollock was saying. I do like most of Greg Hunter’s guests but I really do not like Greg Hunter. He sometimes reminds me of Russ Limbaugh or Alex Jones.

          I also, think, Gregg was having a hard time keeping up with Warren. I like when Warren mentioned and referred to Fitt’s idea.

            JMiller says:


            Catherine Fitts is one guest that I agree with in general. Very sound thinking. I do not believe in the dollar going poof! Bonds going poof! Stocks going poof! Gold and silver going to the moon! All in just a few hours or days. I believe more in the slow burn. I get the sense lately that Greg pretty much believes that the financial system will blow up in September like many people do. Too many people in fact.

            Thanks for the reply. I think that you have some sound thinking, concerning the dollar,bonds, stocks and gold and silver. Fitts does mention the slow burn, so your thoughts seem to be in line with hers.

    Franky said the following.
    The collapse is coming, Stop looking at the worthless TV, Stop dreaming the euro has dropped like a rock, and fiat currency is worthless. Those who believe in fiat are part of the mass insanity, You will see that I am correct. The number which are printed as representing fact are a bunch of crap.

    Suddenly the blind will see, and things are going to explode,…So, you should purchase items of value,…Like wine, silver, copper, land, art, furniture and good food. AND if you happen to drive by Mcdonald’s do not eat the food, but purchase the stock, because the fat ass sheeple will continue to purchase and the stock price will go up.
    The sheepl will drop like flys, big time, …There for I do not need to sell my euros they have dropped already…..This is a sign of the end….The Gnashing of teeth.

      Jerry, we all know how much debt is out there, but think of how much more debt there will be if the market crashes; it will be debt on debt followed by tax on tax. When the road to riches is revealed for what it is, a mirage, don’t you think you should add buying shares in funeral homes as a store of value. The undertaker will have a field day. DT

      Bob Moriarty says: — The U.S. has a $210 trillion “fiscal gap” and “may well be in worse fiscal shape than any developed country, including Greece,” Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff told members of the Senate Budget Committee in written and oral testimony on Feb. 25.
      “The first point I want to get across is that our nation is broke,” Kotlikoff testified. “Our nation’s broke, and it’s not broke in 75 years or 50 years or 25 years or 10 years. It’s broke today.

            Houses are way past a million in Vancouver..and still going up…If you want to invest on logic you are TOAST. There a couple manages on planet earth that can sift through the data and actually have a shot at investing wisely. Being contrarion is just a piece of what you need to know…Because something like the dollar has had a big move doesn’t mean it going to blow up. Now the US housing situation years ago was zero money down with street people buying that’s an obvious sign…There 150,000 billionaires in China and countless millionaires and Vancouver is a prim destination. Doug Casey said SELL Van years ago…LOL Ya go ahead and short it…Ya short the dollar too!

            Just like I said, the system is getting mad. If God wants to destroy someone, make him mad first.

            Housing off course is going up because of money printing. That is not defying logic. It is logical. It is the borrow and derivatives which is going exponential. If you want to invest based on moral hazard, 2000 and 2008 are example how you can lose big. US will blow itself up like a frog.

            Lawrence I think your completely wrong on why house was going up. It was in a uptrend and then the Banks, regulators and no money down policy with a low interest rate created a massive bubble. Appraisers got on board too. It was criminal……Canada is over price but does not have a bubble..

            This is what I said, effect of money printing. Low rate itself is money printing. It expands the money supply.

            Low interest rates expand money supply? The available credit does…Hell issuing bonds does I guess but that’s how the modern cities are built….Remember the empty city’s of China and it was all going to blow up. The system is huge and consumer power keeps chugging even if it slows…Burning fuel and eating 🙂

            I don’t know why you argue with me since we are talking about the same thing.

            One of the major way BOC expands the money supply is to buy out mortgages from Canadian home buyers. Banks with issue mortgage to home buyers and BOC issues the money. The money flows into the system though the reception of the payments by the builders and sellers. Lower the interest rate, there will be more home buyers and more money is released.

            Due to this fact, Canadian housing market is inflated. I am sure it will NOT pop soon. That is why I bought several houses. It is not due to Chinese buying since a lot of city Chinese millionaires never go are also rising. Chinese buying may impact BC lower mainland.

            At same time, corporations and peoples will borrow more money from banks which in return borrow from BOC. This is the traditional way of increasing money supply.

            For all this processes, base money supply is expanded on double digit in Canada even we don’t have QE.

            US is also issue a lot of money, however, FED will release the money to the rich banks and they gamble on assets. That is why all assets go up in the last few years. I still prefer Canadian way if I am forced to choose since people does see the money. And in US way, people will have to borrow deep into debt just to consume. We at least have house to show.

            What I am saying is same thing with you. I am saying why and you are saying how.

            Geez, hangzhou is the most crowded city in southern China, capital of Zhenjiang province, dongguan is also a densely populated, very prosperous city. Most the textile export comes from there. There are several cities in the west in the list where population is sparse anyway. The new districts are extension of current cities, many cities do that because cities have no room. They are brand new so they usually takes several years before at least part are built. I went to one in 2010 near suzhou and it was mostly empty when I went and fully occupied in a few years. Ordos is in Inner Mongolia province which IS an empty city because developers did not realize coal usage is dwindling. They were preparing for expansion in a no man’s land. It is the only empty cities I can see. I will do some research on the rest. There is a duplication as well. The ones you listed as new district are around major cities. Where did you get this list. It seems to put densely populated cities into empty city list.

            Erenhot is also in Inner Mongolian, a small city of ~600 year history. Population over 70k. I heard about it when I was little. It is more a rail transportation connection city. It is definitely not empty city.

            TianDuCheng is in between Shanghai and HangZhou, two major cities in Southern China. It was intended to be a tourist town or theme park to satisfy people’s desire to travel to Europe. The buildings were Paris style including Eilfel tower. International investment were raised to build this city park. Unfortunately it stopped due to the arrest of its founder, which results in the lack of follow through funding. It is supposed to be done in 2015. Now only 2000 people live in this 50K capacity half city. However, due to its extremely good location and its unique idea, I don’t expect it remain empty for too long.


            I guess this qualify as an empty city for now.

            Xilin Gol 锡林郭勒 is in Inner Mongolia where Chengis Khan was born. I cannot find empty city information since it is not a city. It is a large region populated by about one million people. It is the grassland to raise cattle. For its special historic reason, United Nation has named it the 4th historic site in China. It is now a tourist area. It is not a city.

            This is the summary of all the places you quoted. KangBaShi in Ordos might stay as ghost town forever, Others are mis-quoted, duplicate or place not finished yet. Considering what I saw with previous example, these empty cities will be populated as other ones. China is too tight on land. It might be slower than other areas since they tend to be expensive and other facilities and schools are needed.
