During a speech at the Christian Democrats party conference this week, Chancellor Angela Merkel lectured German citizens, telling them they need to “integrate” with multiculturalism even as a migrant crime wave continues to sweep the country.

In another controversial case of Latvia’s relationship to Nazi symbolism, a large ornament eerily similar to a swastika appeared in Riga’s Christmas Market, provoking critical reactions.
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.
How hard is it to build this device by yourself? Read this article to see three simple Faraday cage designs you can build at home!
Energy revolution set to take place in the US
Infowars reporter Millie Weaver interviews Timothy Ball, PhD. at the “Global-Warming; an Inconvenient Lie” conference in Phoenix, AZ.
Next week he will be meeting with Myron Ebell, who is heading Trump’s EPA Transition.
Timothy Ball gives a preview of key issues he will be discussing with and Myron Ebell.
He conveys that the meeting will center around defunding green energy subsidies and redirecting the EPA’s focus away from so-called “man-made” climate change to more immediate and verifiable environmental concerns such as water contamination.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
