Understanding Evil: From Globalism To Pizzagate

Most people are readily equipped to recognize evil when they see it directly. What they are not equipped for and must learn from environment is how to recognize evil disguised as righteousness. The concept of globalism is one of these ideologies that crosses the line of conscience and pontificates to us about a “superior method” of living.  It relies on taboo, rather than moral compass, and there is a big difference between the two...

The Obamacare 'Dilemma' In One Infographic

America’s healthcare system is at an inflection point, and no one really seems to know how to solve it. President-elect Donald Trump has consistently called to repeal or replace the Affordable Care Act throughout his campaign, but many pundits see this as being a catch-22 for the incoming administration.

Trump's Biggest Test So Far

Donald Trump said several times during his campaign, that if elected as President, he would seek a new, less-hostile, relationship between the U.S. and Russia. Now the moment has come when he must either make his first move forward with that historic commitment, or else - by his own inaction when the circumstances (such as right now) demand immediate action on this very promise - set his future U.S. Presidential Administration onto exactly the opposite path.

California State Senator Files Legislation To Create "Safe Zones" For Illegal Immigrants

The “Carrier” deal, and future deals like it, only succeed in temporarily keeping the jobs of yesterday with a cost to taxpayers today.

"So let me end this with a warning to Facebook, Google, and all the other tech behemoths. You start this fight at your own risk. Any disingenuous attempt to smear genuine, independent media websites via blacklists and censorship will ultimately harm you more than it harms us. In a misguided attempt to destroy us, you will destroy yourselves. Tread carefully and be on the right side of history."

What Has Gone Wrong With Oil Prices, Debt, & GDP Growth?

It would be nice if we could figure out a way to make our economy last forever, but it is doubtful that we can. Ultimately, the battle between diminishing returns and increased complexity seems likely to be settled in a way that causes the economy to collapse.

"China Should Build More Nuclear Arms, ICBMs In Response To Trump": Local Press

"China won't pay into Trump's protection racket. It should use the money to build more strategic nuclear arms and accelerate the deployment of the DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile. China's military spending in 2017 should be augmented significantly." - Global Times

Lame-Duck Congress Looking To Ban Online Gambling

Storing a few key electronics that would be of use in a protracted power grid failure will ensure that you’ll still receive information, communicate and carry out other critical functions in the event of an HEMP. It’s common knowledge that a Faraday cage is the safest way to protect them.
Faraday cages shield their contents from electromagnetic energy. If you have ever had a magnetic resonance imaging or you have been inside one, though you may not have even noticed.

Foreclosure Crisis Comes Full Circle? Biggest Buy-to-Rent Landlord Plans IPO (Despite Red Ink Everywhere)

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
The financialization of rents.
In the Fed-engineered asset price inflation since the Financial Crisis, the value of the US housing stock has ballooned to $35 trillion, as large private equity firms have muscled into the single-family housing market, long the domain of mom-and-pop investors. They have acquired about 160,000 single-family houses out of foreclosure for least $32 billion. In the process, the homeownership rate has dropped to the lowest since 1965. And now comes the time to sell it to the public.
The largest player in the field, Blackstone’s Invitation Homes, which spent about $10 billion since the Financial Crisis, or about $150 million a week during the heyday, on about 50,000 homes in 14 metropolitan areas, has confidentially filed for an IPO, according to The Wall Street Journal. But it will face some, let’s say, challenges.

Groups Demand Arrest of ‘War Mastermind’ Kissinger at Nobel Peace Prize Forum

from The Anti Media:
The Nobel Peace Prize committee last month stunned many observers by choosing Henry Kissinger—the former secretary of state behind the secret American bombing of Cambodia and who supported Argentina’s “dirty wars,” among other things—to speak at a forum on “The United States and World Peace after the Presidential Election.”
In response, on Tuesday the progressive groups RootsAction and Nobel Peace Prize Watch issued a petition demanding that Norwegian officials arrest Kissinger.
“The Nobel Committee has arranged for well-known war mastermind Henry Kissinger to speak as an honored guest at a forum that is part of the Nobel Peace Prize events,” the petition states. “Several of Kissinger’s crimes come under treaties that make it mandatory for Norway to prosecute. Kissinger is complicit or a main actor in many violations of the Genocide Convention and of the Geneva Conventions.”

Somali Refugees Arriving in U.S. at Highest Rate Ever in First Two Months of FY 2017

by Michael Patrick Leahy, Breitbart:
Somali refugees are arriving in the United States at the highest rate ever in the first two months of Fiscal Year 2017, according to the State Department’s interactive website.
Between October 1, 2016, the beginning of the fiscal year, and December 7, 2016, a total of 2,775 Somali refugees have arrived in the United States.
That rate is more than thirty percent higher than the previous record during the same period of time during any of the fourteen most recent previous fiscal years, beginning in FY 2002. The State Department interactive website does not provide refugee arrival data prior to that time.

Silver Demand Ready To Explode

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:

Generally speaking, I spend the entire day, seven days a week, compiling articles from countless websites – starting with my “keystone” Zero Hedge – in search of topics to discuss.  And nearly every day, the subject of the next morning’s article (or podcast) “hits me” the evening before.
Today is the rare day when many topics are “vying” for lead status – not the least of which, is the fact that as I write, the ECB just announced an expansion of its suicidal QE program not just to September, as widely anticipated, but December (“or beyond, if necessary; and in any case, until the Governing Council sees a sustained adjustment in the path of inflation consistent with its inflation aim”).  Even if, LOL, they clumsily attempted to “hide” the hyper-inflationary implications by “tapering” from the current level of €80 billion per month (starting in April), to “just” the original level – from March 2015, until it was raised to €80 billion in March 2016 – of €60 billion per month.  In essence, committing to an additional €540 billion of QE, compared to the expectation of “just” €480 billion – which comically, the rigged financial press will spin as “hawkish,” simply because the extra €60 billion will occur a mere three months later.

Here’s What Happens When a Currency Completely Breaks Down

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:
In Venezuela, hyperinflation has become so pitiful that shopkeepers are no longer bothering to actually count money.
Instead, they’re weighing it…
… as in literally pulling out a scale and weighing giant stacks of money. Do you want to buy a bottle of Coca Cola? That’ll be 1 kilo of currency please.
One shopkeeper interviewed by the Guardian newspaper said he’s piling up bricks of cash so quickly he feels like Pablo Escobar.
And yet Venezuela’s hyperinflation continues growing worse; those bricks of cash are buying less every week.
