About

My name is Michael Krieger and I am a recovering Wall Street employee.

For those that don’t already know my background, I graduated from Duke University in 2000 with a double major in Economics and Spanish.  I took a job at Lehman Brothers upon graduation and worked with the Oil analyst in the Equity Research Department.  In 2005, I joined Sanford Bernstein where I served as the Commodities Analyst on the trading floor.  About halfway through my time there I started to branch out and write opinions on bigger picture “macro” topics that no one else at the firm was covering.  These opinion pieces were extremely popular throughout the global investment community and I traveled around providing advice to some of the largest mutual funds, pension funds and hedge funds in the world.

I loved my job but as time passed I started to educate myself about how the monetary and financial system functions and what I discovered disgusted me.  I no longer felt satisfied working within the industry and I resigned in January 2010.  At that point I started a family investment office and continued to write macro pieces on economic, social and geopolitical topics.  My writings have continued to gain a larger and larger audience as time has passed and I believe that now is the time to create my own space on the web.

I don’t know where this blog will take me but I am excited for the journey.  My number one goal is to help as many people as possible protect themselves from the financial and social calamity that is coming to this planet as a consequence of the actions of the Central Planners and those that play ball with them as a means to enrich themselves at the expense of the species.  I am dedicated to restoring Liberty to the United States of America.

Please come join me in the Liberty Blitzkrieg.

Mike

  2. Michael, You have a very excellent Blogsite and the articles are informative. I ran across your blogsite by accident. I plan to return when I have more time. I am of the opinion that Obama and his cronies, etc. will lead to the ultimate destruction of the United States – Economically and morally. The only true hope for our country is a nationwide Revival which I do not believe will come. Obama from my research is a Marxist Muslim who was and is funded and directed by George Soros who’s goal is to destroy the United States because it stands in the way of his globalist goals for the World. What God did at the Tower of Babel shows God’s displeasure with Globalism. Even though many people believe that Globalism is the ultimate solution for World problems, they are wrong because God has never allow this to this date. According to Holy Scripture a final One World government will be created but it will be the worst disaster that mankind has ever seen.

    “there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time:” Dan 12:1 (KJV)

    21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matt 24:21 (KJV)

    15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Rev 13:15-18 (KJV)

    Personally, I do not believe that this time is very far off. I have been research these type issues for 50 years.

    In Christ,
    Rev. Thomas Clark – Phil. 3:14

  3. I used to live in Boulder until 2009, would have been good to have you around then. I studied international affairs and Chinese at CU and also was thoroughly disgusted by the end of my education! Anyhow, lived in Wyoming in the mountains for a few years thumbing my nose at the BS, now in NYC beginning to work in finance as an outlet for engaging with the system. Not sure if engagement or disengagement is the answer. They say it takes money to make money and with the central planners fucking our futures, finance seems to be one way to still make money. I dunno. Either way, I’ll follow the blog and have appreciated your pieces in the past. Peace.

  4. Mike, I really enjoy your site and articles. PLEASE keep up your great work! One suggestion, I wanted to ask a question on the Darden Restaurant strategy for the Affordable Health Care (not) Act. Do you have a feedback link to your articles?

  5. 9/11 appeal – Dimitri Khalezov has asked for help
    .
    Dimitri Khalezov alerted us to the nuclear demolition scheme of the WTC two years ago. He dropped out of sight for a while but has resurfaced to ask for help. He has been writing a book on 9/11. This is now finished and will be released very soon. However, he does not wish to to be killed for his revelations. So he is asking people to download a set of encrypted files from his websites. If anything bad happens to him, his friends will make public the passwords for the files (which hold highly sensitive information that is very damaging to Thailand, where he lives).
    .
    To recap, this is the information which Dimitri Khalezov released in 2010:
    http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/esp_sociopol_911_154.htm
    [Links to the 26 part video interview with Khalezov are at the bottom of the webpage - #4 is on the WTC nuclear demolition scheme and #14 is on Building 7]

    These are securely encrypted.
    If anything happens to me, my friends will publish the passwords.
    I may add more files.

  6. many thanks for the links above!
    This guys analyses definitely make sense. Everything is clear for me now regarding 9/11. This theory should get more broader audience.

  7. Mike – I’ve been following your blog for about a year and was on the verge of deleting it. Not that I don’t like your writing or don’t appreciate your efforts, but I’ve recently decided to focus on change of consciousness and SOLUTIONS vs.learning evermore about the bottomless hole of corruption and fraud we seem sunk in. And then today, you write your Mission Statement for 2013: Solutions! I don’t think we’re alone in this change of focus – there are MANY exciting experiments in decentralization, community equity, local food, alternative financing happening right now. So, I’ll certainly be staying tuned to your blog as this year unfolds!

  8. The article about plastic printed guns, was nothing short of misleading. It’s aan example of absolute dreack that circulates on the net by people with no understanding of science, materials, technology and the like. You could have vetted that article with a call to any gun smith, but you didn’t… that speaks volumes that you don’t need facts for you to write anything at all.

  9. a truthful world a better world an honest world a loving world, what a wonderful world to bring a child into. thanks for being brave enough to try.

  10. Just stumbled across your site as I googled “debt slavery,” a phrase I hadn’t heard until I listened to a Guardian interview with the former British politician and socialist, Anthony Wedgewood Benn. When one thinks this notion through, it’s astonishing what lives of diminished liberty most Americans live! Keep up the good work and wishing you lots of success.

  11. Great A2A today!

    Thank you for answering my question about fears about becoming a target do to voicing my discontent with “the state”. While we do reach out to like minded Americans, have get togethers, talk about gardens, preparing, solar, water, and the Fed. I was really expressing a fear I keep inside, and one that pops up before I say or do most things.

    You are right! I do not like feeling like this, but I do like my constitutional rights! I will keep your words in mind!

    best to you!
    -eric

  12. oh, and…

    Could you pay your IT guy some BTC to get you a website icon? I “pin” sites I check in with daily in Firefox, which shortens them down to just the site icon. Yours is blank (TF’s is a yellow cowboy hat) ;-)

    • Thanks for listening in and engaging! By icon, do you mean the yellow hat to the left of the site’s URL? I am working on a logo and other improvements to the site as we speak. Hopefully have everything up and running by the end of the year!

      Best,
      Michael Krieger

  13. Yes! :-) And, that’s cool.

    Sorry, I’m a software engineer… so, this is what you also get back from me (engagement wise) :-)

    If the comment (or reply) gets larger than the fixed “Leave a Reply” box, the “Post Comment” button gets scrolled off the bottom. But, I guess that’s one way to keep comments short. ;-)

    Thank you for indulging my having just learned… at 50, that I am a libertarian.

  14. The single greatest threat to Liberty and Freedom is the US legal system. Those who sacrifice the most…benefit the least. When I hear the word terrorist or terrorist organization I don’t think of Al-Qaida or the Taliban, I think of judges and the US legal system. For-profit prisons, above the law judges, politicians and those with wealth, militarized law enforcement and etc. etc, we’ve seen this play before. Some say we are losing America, I say we have lost her but I believe she can still be saved. God Bless America and all those who serve her.
