Welcome to Totalitarian America President Trump!

from Antonius Aquinas:
If there had been any doubt that the land of the free and home of the brave is now a totalitarian society, the revelations that its Chief Executive Officer has been spied upon while campaigning for that office and during his brief tenure as president should now be allayed.
President Trump joins the very crowded list of opponents of the American State which includes the Tea Party, tax resistors, non-interventionists, immigration opponents, traditional family advocates, and a host of others who have been spied upon, persecuted and badgered by federal “intelligence” authorities.

Montana Man Fined $85,000 by FDA for Making Natural Products that Harmed No One

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:
A Livingston, Montana man has been faced with fines of $85,000 by the Food and Drug Administration for developing and selling topical bloodroot and graviola products, even though no one was injured in the process of either the manufacture or sale of the products.
Toby McAdam, owner of Risingsun Health, whose website is, manufactured black salves, oils and capsules as a treatment for diseases, including skin cancer. In 2010, the US Justice Department brought a case against him and his company on behalf of the FDA.
McAdam did claim that some of his products did treat breast cancer, asthma and epilepsy, according to the FDA. Understand there is a significant difference in claiming to “treat” a disease, and claiming a product “cures.”

CIA’s Climate Change Studies Can Lead to No Good

by Jean Perier, New Eastern Outlook:
At the end of 2015, Britain’s Prince Charles made a sensational statement that might sound delusional at first. He stated that climate change is one of the main causes of the war in Syria, terrorism and the mass exodus of refugees to Europe. Scientists predict new climatic cataclysms: the winters will become colder, and the summer months – hotter. Thus, the Climate of Conflict report studies the impact of climate change on the situation in various countries over the coming years. In particular, it is expected that Africa will be plunged in a series of bloody conflicts for control of the Nile River region. The warring parties will be fighting for water resources. Calculations show that as early as 2025 the first military conflicts connected with this problem will start. By the middle of the 21st century the whole continent will be plunged in chaos, with new refugees flowing to the US, the EU, Canada and Russia.

Massive Cascade of Eurozone Defaults Coming Up

by Mish Shedlock, Mish Talk:
As soon as any major country exits the Eurozone (and possibly some lesser ones), a cascade of defaults, unparalleled in history will commence.
The only way to stop such a cascade would be if the ECB guaranteed (printed) enough euros to cover losses. Meanwhile, the already high Eurozone default risk keeps rising.

The Deep State and Your Children: Teach Your Child to Avoid the Tyranny

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
I am preparing to re-open an investigation into something I looked at last year, namely, the invocation of continuity of Government (COG). COG, among other things works by denying all travel, in or out, from a metropolitan area. I live 20 miles outside of suburban Phoenix in the rural desert, my neighbors are seeing clear and unmistakable signs of two staging areas that will be used to enforce COG protocols. Because we have new evidence, and the context of America’s present situation is changing, the readers should expect a follow-up story on this issue in the near future as we getting new evidence (eg pictures) by the day.

The Fateful Date

by Alasdair Macleod, GoldMoney:
Caesar: What sayest thou to me now? Speak once again.
Soothsayer: Beware the ides of March.
Caesar: He is a dreamer; let us leave him: pass.

This famous advice, according to Shakespeare, was ignored with fatal consequences for Julius Caesar. Markets may be being similarly complacent ahead of this anniversary date next week. The Fed has signalled that it will raise interest rates at the FOMC’s March meeting, timed for the same day. It so happens that this fateful date coincides with the end of the suspension of the US debt ceiling. Dare Janet Yellen raise rates at such a sensitive juncture?

The Conflict within the Deep State Just Broke into Open Warfare

The battle raging in the Deep State isn’t just a bureaucratic battle–it’s a war for the soul, identity and direction of the nation.
from Charles Hugh Smith:
When do the unlimited powers of the Intelligence/Security agencies threaten America’s domestic and global national interests? The CIA and its political enablers claim the agency’s essentially unlimited powers, partially revealed by Wikileak’s Vault 7, pose no threat to America’s interests, since they are intended to “defend” American interests.
This is the rationale presented by neocon CIA allies in both political parties: the CIA can’t possibly threaten America’s interests because the CIA defines America’s interests.

Global Leaders Rattle Their Sabers As The World Marches Toward War

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Iran just conducted another provocative missile test, more U.S. troops are being sent to the Middle East, it was just announced that the U.S. military will be sending B-1 and B-52 bombers to South Korea in response to North Korea firing four missiles into the seas near Japan, and China is absolutely livid that a U.S. carrier group just sailed through contested waters in the South China Sea. We have entered a season where leaders all over the globe feel a need to rattle their sabers, and many fear that this could be leading us to war. In particular, Donald Trump is going to be under the microscope in the days ahead as other world leaders test his resolve. Will Trump be able to show that he is tough without going over the edge and starting an actual conflict?

Silver Market Poised For Big Reversal When Institutional Investors Move In

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:
The Silver Market is going to experience a big reversal when the Hedge Funds and Institutional investors rotate out of highly inflated stocks and into precious metals investments.
