Secret Service Taking Extraordinary Measures To Protect Against "Unprecedented" Inauguration Threats
Running over protesters may soon be legal in North Dakota, if conservative lawmakers are successful in advancing legislation introduced last week.
House Bill Number 1203 (pdf) states that, “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a driver of a motor vehicle who unintentionally causes injury or death to an individual obstructing vehicular traffic on a public road, street, or highway, is not guilty of an offense.”
In recent decades, the Fed has engaged in a series of policy interventions and market manipulations that have paradoxically left it more powerful even as those interventions left a trail of crashes, collapses and calamities.
The following is a survey of seven Federal Reserve tools in the Fed toolkit to stimulate the economy if recession or deflation gains the upper hand and why their toolkit is flawed.
The image of the Fed printing paper money, and dumping it from helicopters to consumers waiting below who scoop it up and start spending is a popular, but not very informative way to describe helicopter money. In reality, helicopter money is the coordination of fiscal policy and monetary policy in a way designed to provide stimulus to a weak economy and to fight deflation.
Some lady out for a walk happened upon a couple of guns stashed in a violin case in the woods near the C&O Canal along the Potomac River in Washington, DC.
After the police were called in, more weapons caches were found, including long guns, pistols, and ammunition in pails and garbage bags tucked away in an area of the woods hikers aren’t known to frequent.
“At this point, we don’t know how they got there, why they’re here or when they got here,” police spokeswoman Sgt. Anna Rose told ABC News.
Could be nothing, but it seems like another red flag.
I am not one of those people who believes that a particular political party is at the end of the road. That’s because I think both political parties are in the hip pocket of the Council on Foreign Relations, and have been since approximately 1932.
Political parties have periods in which they are dominant. Then the electorate swings back to the other party. There is not much difference between the two parties ideologically. There may be a difference of rhetoric, but when it comes time to voting for the welfare-warfare state, there is bipartisan support.
A new video released Monday by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas shows left-wing activists allegedly planning to use butyric acid bombs — commonly known as “stink bombs” — to disrupt an event scheduled for the week of Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th President of the United States.
The leftists captured on film were allegedly targeting the Deploraball, a grass-roots event being held on Thursday at the National Press Club “to celebrate and honor … the passionate citizens who worked social media, knocked on doors, and endured harassement to support” Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.
U.S. Park Police and D.C. police Wednesday afternoon investigated the two areas where the weapons were found. I have been waiting for a massive law enforcement response, given the timing and location of the following discoveries. Instead, all we are getting are crickets chirping with regard to the response of federal and local law enforcement.
The reason that this is significant because on January 15th, I received a highly credible tip that man was arrested in DC transporting a huge weapons cache in a truck. I have been told by a local official that the event is being covered up from the media and there is no federal involvement to their knowledge. Let’s review the following, of what is known, and evaluate local law enforcement as well as the Feds response to this situations which I believe pose a significant and potential threat to Donald Trump.
John Hathaway of Tocqueville Funds says the physical gold market will defeat the paper gold market leading to a much higher price for the monetary metal in the coming months and years in his Tocqueville Gold Strategy Investor Letter (Fourth Quarter 2016 Investor Letter):
Gold rose 8.5% for the year while gold-mining stocks (XAU – Philadelphia Gold and Silver Index stocks) rose 75%. On an annual basis, results were highly satisfactory. However, there was considerable drama beneath the surface that left precious metals investors in a state of anxiety by year-end. Precious metals and mining shares rose sharply through August, and then spent the rest of the year giving back much of the first-half gains. The second half downtrend accelerated into early December, following the unexpected victory by Trump and a hawkish statement after the December Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting.
At this point in our nation’s history, information and knowledge are key. They will most likely be the two single biggest factors that determine whether we the people are able to retain this republic of ours, or whether we lose it to a tyrannical police state. Right now, many Americans have absolutely no idea what is really going on in this country, because the very institutions people should be able to trust for honest and reliable information, are outright lying to them, and it keeps getting worse.
Turn on your television, pick up a newspaper, or listen to the radio, and all you hear about today is “fake news” this, or “fake news” that. Today, almost everything coming out of the mainstream media is either a blatant lie, or a very small fraction of the whole truth. The global interests that own and run the media fully recognize that he who controls the information, controls, which is why we’ve seen a relentless effort lately by the mainstream media to regain their stranglehold on information.
The stage is set for a potentially very ugly confrontation between radical leftist protesters on one side and law enforcement authorities and Trump supporters on the other side. It is being estimated that hundreds of thousands of supporters will be arriving in D.C. to celebrate the inauguration of Donald Trump, but it is also being estimated that hundreds of thousands of people will be coming to D.C. to specifically protest the inauguration of Trump. These protesters plan to set up blockades, disrupt inaugural balls and generally cause as much chaos as they possibly can. In fact, a spokesperson for #DisruptJ20 says that the goal of his organization is for Trump to be inaugurated “amid complete chaos”…
