    KIROVSK, Murmanskaya Oblast - The 30,000 inhabitants of this Arctic town in the middle of the vast Kola Peninsula pride themselves on being happy and hospitable. There are reasons for this: For an industrial town, the multicolored buildings look refreshingly pristine and the view is panoramic, especially this time of year, when the sun always hangs in the sky, except for an occasional dip behind the barren and breathtaking Khibiny mountains. But life hasn't always been so idyllic. Like hundreds of other outcroppings in Stalin's gulag system, Kirovsk was designed as a labor camp of death and detainment. It is...

    China looks like it is heading for its version of the 1929 stock market crash While all Western eyes remain firmly focused on Greece, a potentially much more significant financial crisis is developing on the other side of world. In some quarters, its already being called Chinas 1929 the year of the most infamous stock market crash in history and the start of the economic catastrophe of the Great Depression. In any normal summer, a 30pc fall in the Chinese stock market a loss of value roughly equivalent to the UKs entire economic output last year after...

    The latest fantasy from the fanciful imagination of Barack Obama: We hear a lot about the United States' Judeo-Christian heritage, but according to President Obama, "Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding." That's what the president told a White House conference on "countering violent extremism" on Wednesday. Obama has said similar things in the past: "I also know that Islam has always been a part of Americas story, Obama said in a June 2009 speech in Cairo, Egypt. "Islam has always been part of America," he said in a 2010 statement marking the start...

    Elena Holodny November 10, 2014A small firm that predicted the market crash back in 1929 is back with an ominous message. According to Bloomberg, the Jerome Levy Forecasting center sees a 65% chance of a recession in 2015. "Clearly the direction of most of the recent global economic news suggest movement toward a 2015 downturn," said David Levy, the chairman of the Jerome Levy Forecasting Center. Levy's forecasts contrasts with the Wall Street consensus, which is confident growth will continue for years. Back in 1929, Jerome Levy grandfather of now chairman David Levy "didn't like what he saw...

    Krauthammer: [Obama] played as the puzzled observer. He was asked about the meaning of the election, and he said Ill leave to others the reading of tea leaves. Was this really a subtle result? Was this sort of complicated and nuanced? This was the worst wall-to-wall, national, unmistakable, unequivocal shellacking that you will ever see in a midterm election, and it happened on just about every level. Youve got in the House the Republicans now have the largest majority since 1929.

    Washington Post ^ | 11/5/2014 | Philip Bump
    This will be the most dominant Republican Congress since 1929, with an almost-certain 8 percent majority in the Senate and an 11.7 to 17.7 percent majority in the House. That trumps the party's 6.3/13.3 percent majorities in the 80th Congress that began in 1947. (Even if the party loses the Senate races in Louisiana or Alaska, it only needs two of the contested House races that remain to go its way to beat 1947.)

    This Infamous Stock Market Crash Chart Just Won't Die Joshua Brown, The Reformed Broker Feb. 13, 2014, 12:27 PM     No matter how many times it’s been debunked*, the 1929 stock market overlay chart just will not die. Probably because you keep clicking on any headline with the number ’1929′ in it. Probably because of how provocative the idea is and because of the fact that we are much more likely to be made uncomfortable by fear than we are to be take pleasure in potential opportunity. The studies all confirm that the human animal is, at...

DeMark compared today's market to that preceding the Black Friday crash in 1929. "When the market made its high on September 3, [1929], there were 23 subsequent trading days where the Dow Jones Industrial Average had a short-term bottom," he said. "23 days aligns with the low end on...
  • Calvin Coolidge Revised: New Find On 1929 Stock Market Crash

    Forbes ^ | 07/01/2013 | Amity Shlaes
    Traditional presidential polls give Calvin Coolidge a low ranking. One reason for this is that he is often blamed for egging on the already boisterous stock market of the late 1920s, especially toward the end of his presidency. Particularly disparaging is John Kenneth Galbraiths account that Coolidge said in 1929 that prosperity was absolutely sound and that equities were cheap at current prices. This assertion is said to have stoked market fires so that stocks continued heavenward during the first half-year of Herbert Hoovers presidency. The crash, when it came, was therefore all the more violent. Parts of this older...

    Yesterday, my colleague, Marty Biancuzzo, explained why America is on a path to inevitable economic and government collapse. After reading Martys piece, another colleague asked me: What will America look like after a government collapse? Its an important question, and I want to give a satisfactory answer. But I cant do that in one short column, so I plan to return to this topic several times over the next few weeks. I hope that when Im done, you will have a better understanding of where the country is headed. Now, consider our current situation Its clear that Barack Obama and...

    A few things you won't hear about from the saturation coverage of the Newtown school massacre: Mass shootings are no more common than they have been in past decades, despite the impression given by the media. In fact, the high point for mass killings in the U.S. was 1929, according to criminologist Grant Duwe of the Minnesota Department of Corrections.

    Rabbi Sholom Ber Goldshmid, the last remaining member of the of the Chabad community to survive the Hebron Massacre of 1929, passed away November 10. He was 86 years old.

    LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) One man was arrested after attempting to change his travel plans midflight by leaving the plane through an emergency exit. Richard Joel Garber, 60, of Atlanta, Ga., was seated on board Delta Airlines Flight 1702 on Oct. 23 when he tried to open one of the cabin doors after the plane had reached cruising altitude, which for commercial flights can be anywhere above 30,000 feet.

    As the world is subjected to a hail of propaganda from Arabs regarding the 1948 disaster inflicted upon them by the creation of the state of Israel, Arab press watchdog MEMRI has released a video that places the Arab claims in perspective. In the video, a 92-year-old Arab woman, originally from Hevron, glowingly recalls on Hamas-Gaza TV how the Arabs of Hevron, including her father, without provocation, massacred the peaceful Jewish neighbors they had lived beside for years in 1929 almost 20 years before the 1948 War of Independence. Needless to say, there was no State of Israel then,...
