The Welding Shut of the American Mind

By Ben Hunt | September 21, 2020 | 22

The closing of the American mind is evolving into its next stage: the welding shut of the American mind.

What’s the difference between closing and welding shut? A closed door can be opened. A welded shut door cannot. We can’t save the minds already lost. We can only prevent our OWN minds from being welded shut.

And we can. Together.

Mailbag – Lucifer’s Hammer Edition

By Ben Hunt | September 11, 2020 | 8

It’s been a full year since I wrote my last Mailbag note, which is kinda pathetic.

Well, better late than never. Reader comments and emails following our publication of Lucifer’s Hammer have been amazing, and it would be a disservice to the Pack if I didn’t collect some of them here. Enjoy!

The Projection Racket (Part 1)

By Rusty Guinn | September 14, 2020 | 23 Comments

Some of us are uncomfortable with BITFD, and that’s OK. Small-c conservatives should be uncomfortable. Small-l liberals should be uncomfortable.

They should also get on board.

This is a series about why.

Lack of Imagination

By Rusty Guinn | March 14, 2020 | 27

The structurally bullish will warn us against failure of nerve. The traders will warn us against hesitation. The structurally bearish will warn us about being unable to shift into a defensive shape. But what we should be worried about now is a lack of imagination.

The Elton/Hootie Line

By Rusty Guinn | March 4, 2020 | 33

In 1995 we crossed a line in music.

In 2009 we crossed that line in markets.

In 2016 we crossed that line in politics.

Music charted the way back. Let’s listen to its lesson.

The Narrative Matrix

New from ET contributor Pete Cecchini …

We talk all the time about the informational efficiency of markets. What if the real dimension we should focus on is narrative efficiency?

Don’t Test, Don’t Tell

By Ben Hunt | February 27, 2020 | 25

The CDC’s Don’t Test, Don’t Tell policy came crashing down last night. So did Trump’s “buh, buh the flu” and “Yay, Containment!” narratives.

Now let’s get to work preparing for the fight to come.

Not in panic. Not in fear. But with resolve, sacrifice and righteous anger for those who would use us instrumentally for their own political ends.

Clear eyes. Full hearts. Can’t lose.

The Fall of Wuhan

By Ben Hunt | February 24, 2020 | 14

Containment has failed.

And so now we must fight.

That means doing everything possible to bolster our healthcare systems BEFORE the need overwhelms the capacity.

That means calling out our leaders for their corrupt political responses to date, and forcing them through our outcry to adopt an effective virus-fighting policy for OUR benefit, not theirs.

The Industrially Necessary Doctor Tedros

By Ben Hunt | February 16, 2020 | 11

To date, WHO leadership has simply been part of the Chinese narrative machine.

It’s more than a disgrace. It’s more than a humiliation of the people who do good and important work through WHO.

It’s a betrayal of the entire world.

November 28, 2018

The way I see it, there are three reasons a person becomes a liar: he believes that he must, he believes that he may, or he believes it serves a Greater Truth.
