Have the Banksters finally gone too far?

Mar 26, 2013 — Dr. Bill Chitwood

Isn’t the reason you put your money in a bank to keep it safe?

That’s what I was always told, at any rate.  Banks have those big vault-thingys with massive thick steel doors and bars and locks, so they’re much safer than a sock filled with cash stuffed into the mattress, right?

E tu, Facebook?

Nov 1, 2012 — Dr. Bill Chitwood

Alas, poor Facebook!

The giant social media company, whose stated mission is “to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected” is the reigning king of social media.  Hailed as one of the “best of the decade” by Entertainment Weekly in their December 11, 2009 issue, it passed MySpace as the most used social network in April 2008.  Now with over one billion users, the Facebook IPO was hailed as “the most hotly anticipated stock debut at least since Google, and maybe ever”…and then, it flopped.

Voter Fraud Follies or A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Election

Oct 26, 2012 — Dr. Bill Chitwood

I have cast the bones.  I have consulted the cards.  I have watched the stars, drunk the tea, read the leaves.  I have studied the entrails…then chopped them up, sautéed them with onions, garlic and fresh herbs in a bit of butter, then added them to a pan of gravy and observed the pattern it made as it was poured across freshly-made biscuits.  I have even read the Huffington Post, which should tell you just how desperate I’ve been getting for hints as to what lies ahead.

Sep 28, 2012 — Dr. Bill Chitwood

(but only about the dates)

I’ve just seen Bebe Netanyahu’s speech at the UN, and realized why I was wrong when I predicted a high probability of an Israeli attack on Iran during the Rosh Hashanah—Yom Kippur period:

Bebe wanted to make this speech first.

Welcome to Bernankeville, the City of Jokernomics

“Where were you when the dollar died?”

That’s a question people will be asking you in the not-too-distant future. The past few weeks have seen several events transpire that spell the inevitable ruin of the dollar. As usual, only some of these events have been reported in the mainstream press, leaving most Americans blissfully clueless about the catastrophe roaring towards them.

Why Romney is Right

Sep 22, 2012 — Dr. Bill Chitwood

By now, everyone who matters has heard about the videos of Mitt Romney that were shot (illegally, but that’s a whole ‘nother can of worms) during a fund-raiser in Florida1. Most people have either heard or read a transcript of the video, or already been told what to think about it.

Pressure Cooker Days

Sep 15, 2012 — Dr. Bill Chitwood

SUMMARY and PREDICTION: An Israeli strike on Iran either on Rosh Hashanah (Sept. 17th) or Yom Kippur (Sept 26th) is more likely than not.  Top off your gas tanks this weekend, because such a strike will give us $8/gal gas here in the US.
