S o T o S p e a k | Ep. 391 | Migrants Not Welcome

Corona-chan is the GIF who keeps on giving.

Stonks are in the shitter, the money printer is going brrrrrr, and the world is coming to a standstill over the Wu Flu — and we are just now FINALLY going to start turning “asylum seekers” and illegals away at the border.

Maybe this crisis could have been controlled a lot earlier had we gotten that moratorium we were promised back in 2016, but I suppose it’s better late than never. I, for one, am thankful that we finally have a pretext to turn back the invaders.

We’re going to be discussing COVID-19, the economy, and immigration at length today.

S o T o S p e a k | Ep. 390 | Wu Flu Lockdown

The entire world is on lockdown (except America, naturally), and the worst is yet to come.

Everyone agrees that this is true, even if they disagree on how we got here or how to proceed.

Because even if the coronavirus was an empty bun that disappeared tomorrow, the hole it pricks in the Mother of All Bubbles is still going to mean chaos for the entire global economy. Unfortunately, the virus is not going to disappear tomorrow, nor will the behavior it inspires.

The economy has been a bubble in search of a pin for a long time. Maybe exporting our savings through inflation to third world shitholes where people shit in the streets, wipe their asses with their hands, and eat uncooked bats was kind of a shortsighted plan? The coming recession will hopefully afford everyone the opportunity to reflect on the costs we’re having to pay for the globalization of our economy.

In the meantime, we’re going to fiddle while Rome burns and describe the dominoes as they fall. Hopefully we can make enough of an impact on the fringes to have a ripple effect on the broader conversation. Maybe then we can avoid making these same mistakes again.

S o T o S p e a k | Ep. 389 | Money Printer Goes Brrrrrr

When in doubt, print your way out.

I had a chance to speak with Christopher Cantwell over the weekend regarding the Wu Flu, the coming economic crisis, and his own personal circumstances as a political prisoner.

Shockingly enough, none of our big-brained Austrian arguments were enough to stop the Federal Reserve from cutting rates and dumping cash on the banks over the weekend.

Plus: school cancellations and business closures as far as the eye can see. Is the happening finally happening? Is the big igloo upon us? Will Trump declare martial law?

I’ve got the latest!

S o T o S p e a k | Ep. 388 | Plunge Protectors to the Rescue

The little speech Trump gave the other night didn’t do him any good.

Jared Kushner and Steve Mnuchin have been working overtime since the President banned travelers from Europe to reassure Kochsuckers and neocons of all flavors that trade will remain open between Europe and the United States. “He misspoke when he said the ban applies to cargo! He went off script when he wasn’t supposed to!”

Still wasn’t enough to stop a 10% fall across all major indices, prompting the Fed (presumably at the request of Steve Mnuchin) to step out and promise trillions more in helicopter cash for failing banks.

Given that Wu Flu Panic is still spreading, we clearly haven’t hit the floor yet.

S o T o S p e a k | Ep. 387 | Trump Bans European Travelers Due to Wu Flu

An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of the cure.

It is in that spirit that President Trump has taken the bold and decisive step of barring entry to European travelers who try to enter the United States.

My thought? Now do Africa and South America.

If we’re going to be banning travelers from entire continents, we might as well ban EVERYONE, like Israel did. If a preventative measure is good enough for Our Greatest Ally, it should be good enough for us.

Right?

And while Europeans might have been banned in an effort to prevent the spread of the Chinese coronavirus, our own southern border is still wide open. The acting director of ICE says it will take about 140 years at the current rate to deport the illegals who entered the country over just the last two years.

Womp womp.

And that bear market we just entered? TOTALLY not an economic crisis, by the way. That’s why the Fed is going to aggressively slash rates and dump helicopter cash on the entire global economy. The problem? The media and the deep state (but I repeat myself) have the bubble confused for the pin that pricked it, and their proposed solution will only make matters worse.

I’ve got the latest!
