NEW YORK TIMES: Outrageous Lie Published About Iran and 9/11

0

by Adam Garrie, The Duran:
A later correction was both feeble and misleading.

The internet is full of fake news websites whose “too good to be true” stories are usually easy to spot. They each have their intended audience.

For the libertarians you have fake news sites that say: “Julian Assange reveals new CIA plan to install 24/7 real time camera drones in all new Florida homes in trial program”.

For the alt-left: “Donald Trump, one Russian businessman and a prostitute from Brazil–you’ll never believe what they got up to”.

For the alt-right: “Hillary Clinton’s ties to Mexican drug cartel EXPOSED”.

IRS Scales Back Tax Investigations Into Bitcoin Owners… for Now

1

by Kenneth Schortgen, The Daily Economist:
One of the most confusing things about the rise of cryptocurrencies is that most countries at the present time are implementing different rules and regulations regarding their ownership, taxation, and even definition. For example, the country of Japan has gone full bore into cryptocurrencies, even passing laws that legitimize Bitcoin as a medium of exchange while also removing any tax obligations on its purchase or use. Yet over in the U.S., a court ruling calling Bitcoin a security is the current standard, and means that transactions in the cryptocurrency are to be designated as property, and subject to capital gains taxes.

95,000 Russians Have Already Applied for Free Land in Far East Under Russia’s Homesteading Act

1

from Russia Insider:
A little over a year ago, Russia started a program called “A Hectare in the Far East,” which offered citizens free land in the sparsely populated areas of the Far East to encourage migration.

The project was met with much skepticism, but it has so far exceeded expectations, with more than 95,000 applications lodged and more than 21,600 plots of land registered to new users.

hile some critics remain, analysts estimate the free land program could act as a catalyst for the biggest migration trend to the Russian Far East since the time of the agrarian reform at the start of the 20th century.

Venezuela’s Bloody Independence Day: Chavista Gangs Take Congress Hostage for Eight Hours

2

by Frances Martel, Breitbart:
Socialist chavista gangs known as “colectivos” stormed Venezuela’s National Assembly Wednesday – the nation’s Independence Day – and kept hundreds of legislators and journalists hostage for eight hours, according to people who were later released.

Gang members also savagely beat legislators and protesters, staining the walls of the national legislator with blood and sending multiple lawmakers to the hospital.

The government of dictator Nicolás Maduro accused the victims of the violence of attempting to “murder” chavistas in a state television report.

ARROGANT CHRIS CUOMO CONFRONTED ABOUT CNN THREATS TO TRUMP MEME MAKER

from InfoWars:
New Day host doubles down

CNN host Chris Cuomo was confronted today over why he deleted a tweet that asked whether the identity of the individual who created the infamous Trump wrestling meme should have been revealed.

The New Day host was caught up in the ‘CNN blackmail’ controversy when he tweeted, “Should CNN reveal name of Reddit user who made trump wrestling video? Had a lot of bigoted and hateful material on page and website.”

Cuomo was asked by the Rebel’s Laura Loomer why he “deleted a tweet that encouraged the extortion of a Reddit user who posted a meme about CNN?”

Man Beaten on Video ‘Like Rodney King’ for Crossing the Street — Mass Protests Planned

by Jack Burns, The Free Thought Project:
Getting accused of jaywalking, as a slew of recent videos shows, can be a dangerous or even deadly experience for people, especially if they have dark skin.

Mesa, AZ — A major protest against police brutality will occur Thursday evening to be held outside police headquarters in Mesa after cell phone footage surfaced showing Mesa Police giving a man a beat down for allegedly crossing the street the wrong way — jaywalking. The cell phone footage shows Jason Michael Barton getting manhandled by two Mesa police officers.

Predictably, Mesa police are blaming the victim for the officers’ use of force, but community leaders like Reverend Jarrett Maupin aren’t buying it. And they say the community is outraged.

Freedom Is Not Necessarily The Absence Of Tyranny

0

by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:
Is it true that freedom is an overly idealized concept? Perhaps, but it is one of the few concepts worthy of idealization. It is so worthy, that it is worth dying for.

Since the dawn of recorded history human beings have fought and sacrificed to attain freedom. It is an inherent psychological construct. It is a principle that is rooted not only in the mind of man, but his spirit or soul. Scientists in the realm of the mind have struggled for generations to understand where it comes from — others have sought to dismiss it as a fanciful notion or societal construct. Nihilists claim it doesn’t really exist, while other people center their entire lives on the proliferation of it. The concept of freedom, love it or hate it, is central to all cultures and all civilizations. The most common dismissal of the idea of freedom that I have seen is the argument that none of us is really free because “tyranny exists”. Tyranny is a constant, therefore, in the view of the nihilists, freedom cannot exist. I believe this dim way of thinking stems from a misconception of what freedom is and where it comes from.

Here’s What “Stupid Cheap” Looks Like: The Inflation-Adjusted Silver Price

by Jeff Clark, GoldSilver:
A lot of readers liked the inflation-adjusted gold price chart we highlighted last month. It showed how dramatically undervalued it is, as well as how high it could reach when using the 1980 inflation formula.

Many of you asked to see the same chart in silver. Well, we aim to please. And what you’ll see below shows that silver’s undervaluation is even greater than gold’s.

Why We Must Adjust For Inflation

When trying to put the price of a particular asset into perspective, you have to adjust it for inflation. If you don’t, the long-term view is distorted and can lead to erroneous conclusions. It’d be akin to preparing your income taxes using 1980 forms.

U.S. and North Korea One Step Closer to War

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:
On Tuesday North Korea tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). Some analysts believe the missile had a range of at least 3,400 miles.

That would bring the U.S. states of Alaska and Hawaii and possibly the major city of Seattle within range.

North Korea claims the missile could carry a large nuclear warhead.

The U.S. and South Korea responded with an announcement that they had conducted their own ballistic missile drill to counter North Korea’s gambit.

Recordings Reveal FBI Gave Man A Rifle, Urged Him To Carry Out Mass Shooting To “Defend Islam”

by Matt Agorist, Activist Post:
It’s become a near-weekly occurrence. Somewhere in some state, the FBI will announce that they’ve foiled yet another terrorist plot and saved lives. However, as the data shows, the majority of these cases involve psychologically diminished patsies who’ve been entirely groomed, armed, and entrapped by FBI agents. Simply put, the FBI manufactures terror threats and then takes credit for stopping them.

But what happens when they take it too far? What happens if the FBI actually tells someone to conduct a mass shooting? Well, in Milwaukee, WI, we are seeing this unfold first hand.
