The Silencing of Dissent

The Silencing of Dissent

by Chris Hedges, Truth Dig:

The ruling elites, who grasp that the reigning ideology of global corporate capitalism and imperial expansion no longer has moral or intellectual credibility, have mounted a campaign to shut down the platforms given to their critics. The attacks within this campaign include blacklisting, censorship and slandering dissidents as foreign agents for Russia and purveyors of “fake news.”

No dominant class can long retain control when the credibility of the ideas that justify its existence evaporates. It is forced, at that point, to resort to crude forms of coercion, intimidation and censorship.

The Demise Of The Dollar As We Know It: “A Break Is Coming… On A Worldwide Basis”

from SHTFplan:

The significance of the shift taking place on a geo-political basis to unseat the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency cannot be understated. It is, by all means, a complete upending of the financial and economic systems as we have come to know them. According to Keith Neumeyer, the Chairman of First Mining Finance and Chief Executive Officer of First Majestic Silver, the world’s purest silver producing mining company, the move is already taking place with countries like China, Russia, Venezuela and Iran already beginning to trade commodities with Yuan, Rubles and gold.

DISNEY’S DESCENDANTS 2: SATANIC INDOCTRINATION FOR KIDS

DISNEY’S DESCENDANTS 2: SATANIC INDOCTRINATION FOR KIDS

from Beginning and End:

As  Hollywood continues to push Satanic rebellion into the hearts and minds of children, the Disney’s Descendants movie series has taken the indoctrination to an entirely new level. The series has been a massive success for the Disney franchise as millions of children and pre-teens have tuned in. The movie series – a spinoff of prior Disney stories and the movie Maleficent – casts evil villains as heroes and celebrates wickedness, sinful rebellion and the occult. All the while it subtly and deceptively reinvents the story of the fall of Lucifer and his fallen angels.

Vicious Ugly Face of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria

Vicious Ugly Face of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria

by Richard Sauder, Event Horizon Chronicle:

The theme of my blog is the Event Horizon, the point at which the pace of events and change quickens and gets faster and faster and faster, until things get so cockeyed that you hardly know which end is up, the world is spinning and whirling all around you, left becomes right, up is down, black is white-- and things become so furious, the crescendo of insanity howls and shrieks all around you, the world seems to lose all normal sense, people act out in all sorts of strange and bizarre ways, there are more and more abnormal weather events, earthquakes, wars, rumors of wars, floods, economic crises, and more -- there may even by mind-numbing mass mortality events.

It seems more than you can take in or bear, and still it keeps coming.

U.S. B-1B Bombers Fly Just Off Coast Of North Korea: 4 Reasons Why This Time It's Different

from ZeroHedge:

Just before North Korea’s foreign minister was due to address the United Nations, the Pentagon announced that U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer bombers escorted by fighter jets flew in international airspace over waters east of North Korea on Saturday, in a show of force which "demonstrated the range of military options available to President Donald Trump." The flight was the farthest north of the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea that any U.S. fighter jet or bomber has flown in the 21st century, the Pentagon added.

European Banking Crisis

European Banking Crisis

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

Perhaps this period will be looked back upon ass the Draghi Deflation. After nearly 10 years of this failed policy, the European banking industry is contracting on every possible level. The merger of Commerzbank to Merge with French BNP is one possibility. Commerzbank is a takeover candidate or shotgun wedding candidate, for good reasons. Its shares have fallen and are trading now at half their book value. When interest rates rise to bring back deposits, then the bank could perhaps get out of its deep hole. The German government, which has a 15 percent stake after a bailout in 2009, is ready to sell looking to raise cash itself.
