Hillary held a small rally today at West Philadelphia High School in Philadelphia. In 2015 there were 776,750 registered Democrats in Philadelphia.
But Hillary could only fill a high school gym. And it’s a SMALL gym.
It was another embarrassing display. It’s a good thing the liberal media sent reporters – so they could help fill up the stands.

It started in 1946.
American Airlines, then the largest airline in the United States (and second largest airline in the world after the Soviet Union’s Aeroflot) created a bold, new technology to book flight reservations.
They called it the “electromechanical reservisor”, and it was the first machine of its kind.
Before the reservisor, American Airlines employees booked all reservations by hand using index cards and lazy susan filing systems.
Needless to say, the manual system was prone to substantial human error, and airline executives were keen to automate the process.
Have you been to your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) lately and was subsequently dumbfounded by what you saw?
To those of us who live in nice neighborhoods and are employed in a professional environment, you would be shocked by what you’d see at your local DMV.
I have subsequently come to the realization that the America that I live in is crumbling under my feet and I have no illusions that this country’s landslide into the depths inescapable poverty will eventually consume me as well. If you do not believe that this will not happen to you as well, you are self-deluded.
In 2008; the central bankers of the West went berserk with their monetary crimes. Interest rates were driven to near-zero. Money-printing was driven to near-infinity, as represented by the Bernanke Helicopter Drop.
As a condition for engaging in monetary policies which were more insane (i.e. more criminal) than anything ever done in our economies; the central bankers promised an immediate Exit Strategy , in early 2009: the normalization of interest rates and the normalization of money-printing. Through the middle of 2016 ; we’re still waiting.
The question, never asked by media drones, and never answered by the criminal central bankers is this. If near-zero interest rates (and now “negative” rates) along with exponential money-printing make our economies stronger, why weren’t we doing this 100 years ago? Why haven’t we always engaged in such policies, like we permanently engage in such policies now? It’s because you cannot build any economy through monetary chicanery.
Countries are up to their necks in debt that cannot not be paid. The derivatives propping the debt up are hundreds of trillions of dollars. Public banking expert Ellen Brown contends, “The concern is this $500 trillion of derivatives just on sovereign debt. There is $100 trillion in sovereign debt globally, which is a huge bill, and then you have all these derivatives betting against it with credit default swaps that would pay off in the event of a default. So, they can’t let any of these governments go bankrupt.
You might have heard about the many health benefits of turmeric – or maybe you still think of this popular spice as only belonging in your spice rack. Either way, you may be surprised to find out that a simple combination of turmeric and honey (known as “golden honey”) is an extremely useful natural remedy, as recently reported by Natural News.
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties that make it very good for your health. It is also able to destroy bacteria that cause diseases, aiding your body’s natural defense system. Combine turmeric with honey – which has its own antibacterial properties – and you have a pretty strong natural remedy. In fact, according to Healthy and Natural World, turmeric golden honey is considered to be the strongest natural antibiotic.
San Francisco housing bubble buckles under its own lopsidedness
Here’s the other side of central-bank engineered asset price inflation, or “healing the housing market,” as it’s called in a more politically correct manner:
San Francisco Unified school district, which employs about 3,300 teachers, has been hobbled by a teacher shortage. Despite intense efforts this year – including a signing bonus – to bring in 619 new teachers to fill the gaps left behind by those who’d retired or resigned, the district is short 38 teachers as of Monday, when the school year started. Others school districts in the Bay Area have similar problems.
his coming autumn, we are likely to see the beginning of the hyperinflationary phase of the sovereign debt crisis. Hyperinflation normally hits an economy very quickly and unexpectedly and is the result of the currency collapsing. Hyperinflation does not arise as a result of increasing demand for goods and services.
The course of events in a hyperinflationary scenario can be summarised as follows:
Chronic government deficits
Debt issuance and money printing escalating rapidly
Bonds falling – interest rates rising fast
The above process turns into a vicious circle that accelerates quickly. The more money the government prints, the faster the currency will fall and the faster the currency falls the more money the government must print. Once the hyperinflationary spiral has started, it will feed itself like we have seen in the Weimar Republic, Zimbabwe, Argentina and many other places.
