CNN’s Jake Tapper likes to malign #SpiritCooking and #PizzaGate as “fake news” without ever bothering to address any of the troubling FACTS and circumstantial evidence that suggest a penchant for pedophilia among the ranks of Washington DC’s elite.
It’s certainly a strange coincidence that almost a year ago (February 6, 2015) Tapper’s wife Jennifer professed her love for Comet Ping Pong and Buck’s Fishing and Camping, naming them specifically as her “favorite date-night restaurants”, which is weird because both establishments have been named by Pizzagate researchers as worthy of further investigation. And perhaps even stranger, Jennifer Tapper also told Washingtonian magazine that Comet Ping Pong is her “favorite restaurant with the kids.”
Small world. It kinda makes you wonder, just how close is Jake Tapper to John Podesta’s inner circle, and what exactly is lurking in his closet?
Why does “the news” have to be 99 percent bad news? It is certainly very true that our world is facing great challenges, and those challenges are only going to become more intense during the years ahead, but why can’t we celebrate the good things that are happening as well? For decades, one of the mantras in news organizations all over the country has been “if it bleeds, it leads”, but life is not all about death and destruction. Yes, if we only focus on the positive our life will be out of balance, but the same thing is true if we only focus on the negative. For those of us that are “news junkies”, it is way too easy to slip into the mindset that everything is bad in the world. Without a doubt, things are dark and getting darker, but there are also a whole lot of people out there that are doing their best to be lights in their communities.
Yves Smith – who runs the respected liberal website Naked Capitalism – has retained a top gun lawyer to sue the Washington Post for defamation unless it retracts its smear piece calling alternative media sites “Russian propaganda.”
Smith has also launched PropOrNot.org … a satirical site complaining about the lack of first-rate propaganda by the powers-that-be.
Global political tensions have not been this palpable since 9/11, when gold prices jumped 32.87% in a single day, and the amount of uncertainty being ushered in for 2017 promises to be great for the precious metal—our age-hold hedge against chaos and instability.
For a fully-funded junior gold miner backed by heavy hitters in one of the world’s hottest venues–Fiore Exploration Ltd (TSXV–F.V) the timing is excellent, the production costs appealing, and the future golden.
This past Friday, Reuters published one of the most important articles I’ve read in a while relative to the attention being paid to the issue. It details a streamlined practice through which Chinese “education” companies essentially bribe college admissions officers at top U.S. universities to accept tuition paying Chinese students. It’d be bad enough if these students were actually qualified, but in many cases these companies complete the entirety of the applications for the students, including writing their essays. It’s not uncommon for these student-clients to never see their own applications.
Prime Minister, you said that in India even Beggars are going Cashless. You are absolutely true. I keep seeing the Whaatsapp message that you work for 18 hours a day, haven’t taken a single leave for the last many years, left your family. All these sacrifices you are making to take India to a digital world. Then why poor should be left out of this digital revolution. They should not. They should also go cashless.By this act they would only contribute to eradicating Black money. Of course, they have accumulated black money through years of hard earned savings, but just saved in a few thousands.
Yes Prime Minister, it is not a problem, if the poor do not earn even Rs. 32 a day (the official definition of poverty) to survive. It is not necessary if they do not get full employment and their income is erratic. They have solution at their hands. They still can go cashless and manage with Debit cards, Credit cards, e-Wallets with a Rs. 32 deposited into their Jan-dhan accounts.
The mystery deepens.
A week or so ago, conspiracy theorists were scratching their heads as to why more than 8500 people in Australia would suddenly have to a hospitalized in a concentrated wave allergies that left several people dead.
Now, a similar event has been reported in Kuwait, where reports claim that thunderstorm activity has triggered a mass reaction and nearly a thousand people were taken to the hospital with severe asthma; again, several people died.
So what is really going on? Is a covert, deadly substance being deliberately sprayed from planes (as governments did back in the sixties, and countless times since)? Or is is just something harmful being swept up from nearby farms and factories?
The most decisive factor in the implementation of the Trump economic plan is the reaction of the Federal Reserve. While a Fed rate hike in December is a certainty, the path of rates in 2017 following the December hike will be dispositive with regard to the success or failure of Trump’s plans.
The Role of the Federal Reserve
The Fed can choose to be highly accommodative in the face of Trump’s larger deficits. In effect, the Fed will not anticipate inflation, but will wait until it actually emerges. Actual inflation is still well below the Fed’s target inflation rate of 2%. Since the Fed is targeting average inflation of 2%, it could allow inflation to run above 2% for a while, which would be consistent with 2% average inflation, given today’s lower level.
