Vladimir Putin Just Issued A Chilling Warning To The United States

As the United States continues to develop and upgrade their nuclear weapons capabilities at an alarming rate, America’s ruling class refuses to heed warnings from President Vladimir Putin that Russia will respond as necessary..."We know year by year what will happen, and they know that we know..."

Lead Attorney In Anti-Clinton DNC Fraud Case Mysteriously Found Dead

Call it conspiracy theory, coincidence or just bad luck, but any time someone is in a position to bring down Hillary Clinton they wind up dead. In fact, as we noted previously, there’s a long history of Clinton-related body counts, with scores of people dying under mysterious circumstances. While Vince Foster remains the most infamous, the body count is starting to build ominously this election cycle - from the mysterious "crushing his own throat" death of a UN official to the latest death of an attorney who served the DNC with a fraud suit.

A Terrifying Glimpse Of What Hillary In Charge Means

by Stephen Lendman, The Sleuth Journal:
America is a warrior nation, Hillary its most despicable exponent, her rage for war humanity’s greatest threat, WW III too serious a risk to allow her to succeed Obama.
She supported and encouraged all US premeditated belligerence since the 1990s Balkan wars and rape of Yugoslavia.
As secretary of state, she orchestrated war on Libya and Syria, naked aggression against both countries – devastated by mass slaughter, destruction and displacement, along with unspeakable chaos and human misery.
London’s Telegraph said her “first key task” as president, if elected, will be ordering a “full review” of America’s Syria policy to complete what she considers unfinished business, according to Jeremy Bash, her chief foreign policy advisor.

Goldman Predicts USA Will Win 106 Olympic Medals (But Less Golds Than London)

Even economists like to have a little summer fun, at least every four years, and as Brazil prepares to unleash its Zika-infested, feces-covered, carnivale of chaos, Goldman Sachs unleashes its quadrennial medal predictions for the Rio games.

Weekend Reading: The Global Dichotomy

If the economy is growing, and there is really “no recession in sight,” then why is there such a panic by the BOJ, BOE and ECB to expand their accommodative programs? Why isn’t the Fed raising their benchmark rates? Why are earnings deteriorating across sectors on an unadjusted basis?

"The Bull Market Just Won't Die", Citi Laments As It Sees "Red" Everywhere

The latest note from Citi strategist Robert Buckland is a perfect example of the schizophrenia that has gripped investors in a market that continues to rise, defying all logic. On one hand, Citi calls the S&P rally "unstoppable" adding that "this US bull market just won’t die", urging clients "don't underweight the S&P", while on the other it openly admits the market, on a fundamental basis is very overstretched, admitting that "since 2011, the US market has re-rated from a trailing PE of 17x to 23x."

Trump's Road To The White House Still Open

At stake in 2016 is the White House, the Supreme Court, the Senate and, possibly, control of the House of Representatives. Hence, Republicans have a decision to make...

Carl Icahn Has Never Been More Short The Market, Is Pressing For A Crash

there was renewed speculation if Icahn had given up on his record bearish bet. So when overnight IEP released its latest 10-Q, we were eager to find out if Carl had unwound his record short, or perhaps, added more to it. What we found is that  one quarter after having a net short position of -149%, as of June 30, Icahn's net position was once again -149%, or in other words, he has once again never been shorter the market.

In Latest Scandal, Trump Retracts Statement He Saw Video Of "Iran Cash Exchange" Just As Clip Emerges

In what has emerged as the latest scandal involving Donald Trump, the presidential candidate on Friday retracted a statement that he had seen a video on TV of a plane carrying $400 million in cash to Iran. However, what is ironic is that just as Trump was backtracking, the video in question, together with commentary from Iran, did indeed emerge.

Are Companies Like SolarCity Wasting Taxpayer Money?

Not all forms of energy are equal; electrical energy is more precious, and costs much more than heat or mechanical energy. Companies such as SolarCity are wasting taxpayers’ money by increasing the grid’s entropy, and from a physics point of view, solar thermal makes more sense, and ultimately, it’s only these incentives that make SolarCity an economic reality.

This Graph Says it All — US 2016 Recession Already Here!

by David Haggith, The Great Recession Blog:
This graph by 720Global shows how spot on my pronouncement of a US 2016 recession is and how precarious the path ahead. In spite of the lack of any official declaration by the US government or its economic priesthood, I’ve stated more than once in 2016 that the US is already in recession. Several interesting observations can be made from this graph:
The red line marks current US GDP (1.2%) as estimated by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). At virtually every point in the last seventy years when US GDP hit 1.2%, the US has been solidly in recession (blue areas). In other words, the US was not ABOUT to go in recession at that level of growth, but was IN recession each time … with only three exceptions. Two of those are “exceptions that prove the rule” (i.e., the very reason these exceptions happened prove how significant the underlying rule or belief is):

by Peter Hasson, The Daily Caller:
The mother of a Pennsylvania teen charged with attempted homicide of a law enforcement officer blamed Black Lives Matter for the actions of her son, who she says was just following orders.
According to police, Marquell Rentas, 17, and Trenton Nace, 18, opened fire on police officers early Friday morning by a cemetery in central Pennsylvania. Marquell’s mother, Luz Rentas, pointed a finger at Black Lives Matter in a statement released to news organizations over the weekend.

WW III? China Tells Citizens to Prepare for “A People’s War at Sea”

by Claire Bernish, The Free Thought Project:
In continued rejection of last month’s ruling by a Hague-based tribunal invalidating China’s territorial claims to a vast swath of the South China Sea, on Tuesday, the Chinese defense minister urged for “substantial preparation for a people’s war at sea.”
Chinese Defense Minister Chang Wanquan also warned of “offshore security threats” and the need to acknowledge the gravity of risk to China’s national security; and advised the military, police, and populace to ready for mobilization to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity, according to state news agency, Xinhua.
None of this bellicose rhetoric and escalation is occurring in a vacuum, of course, and while Americans seem content to analyze whether Donald Trump has experienced a psychological break or bemoan the fact Hillary Clinton hasn’t landed in federal custody, the United States meanwhile barrels toward war with China and its ally, Russia.

How To Save Perishable Food In An Off-Grid Emergency

by Jeremiah Johnson, Ready Nutrition:
“That morning, when Helen apprehensively opened the freezer, she found several hundred pounds of choice and carefully wrapped meat floating in a noxious sea…As any housewife would do under the circumstances, she wept. This disaster was perfectly predictable, Randy realized. He had been a fool. Instead of buying fresh meat he should have bought canned meats by the case. If there was one thing he certainly should have foreseen, it was the loss of electricity.” – “Alas, Babylon,” by Pat Frank, page 151
Readers, there’s your standard…what to read and what we may very well face. The cited work, if you’re into disaster fiction/apocalyptic reading is the end-all be-all of survival stories of how a community organizes and makes it through a nuclear war. It is not so much a how-to as a story with real-life situations that average people face.
