BREAKING: Donald Trump Compares Russiagate to Iraqi WMD lie


by Adam Garrie, The Duran:
One US reported turned the press conference into a diatribe about Russiagate. This was almost certainly designed to stir tensions in Poland, Europe’s most anti-Russian state.

Donald Trump’s press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda turned to Russiagate as a US journalist tried to pound Trump on the Russia issue while inside Europe’s presently and historically most anti-Russian country. Clearly there was an attempt to stir tensions unnecessarily on the part of the reporter.

Trump reiterated his repeated statements that alleged election meddling could have been the work of Russia and/or any number of state or non-state actors. It is important to say alleged election meddling as no one has yet been able to prove a causal relationship between the hacking of DNC emails and the results of the election. This is a crucial point that Trump’s opponents in the US perpetually ignore.

Volvo Goes All Electric – Well Not Quite: End of the Internal Combustion Engine?


by Mish Shedlock, Mish Talk:
SupplyChain24 says Volvo First Major Car Manufacturer to Go All Electric.

The headline is not quite accurate, nor is the notion we are on the verge of the end of the internal combustion engine.

This is a step in that direction, but let’s separate the hype from the reality.

North Korea – ECM & War

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:
It was just one day after the first test of an intercontinental rocket by North Korea, that the US demonstrated military strength and threatened further sanctions against the isolated state. We have to understand that we are dealing with a pampered buy Kim Jong Un who will never yield to sanctions and counter-measures of rocket tests.

Donald Trump has classified North Korea as the major threat to the USA – not Russia. The US requested an urgent session of the UN Security Council in New York last week. The leadership in Pyongyang threatened the USA with further weapon tests and boasted that North Korea would never abandon nuclear weapons.

UK fact-checking group Full Fact has been given a large cash injection by the Open Society Foundations, and Omidyar Network to produce two new tools to counter what it calls “misinformation”.

Bill Gates Changes His Tune: ‘Brussels Must Make it Harder for Migrants to Reach EU’


by Carter, The Gateway Pundit:
Bill Gates, yes, that Bill Gates, the man who previously called on nations to take in MORE immigrants recently changed his tune saying that the EU must make it “harder” for migrants to reach them.

Though this sounds out of character for Gates, it really isn’t. He said that Brussels must make it more difficult for migrants to reach the EU, and in that same breath he emphasized the fact that they must instead spend more foreign aid to “fix the push-factors at the source”.

Treasure of Discord: Three-Way International Battle Sunken Galleon’s Riches


from Sputnik News:
Things are heating up in the Caribbean as Colombia, Spain and a US-based salvage company are waging a courtroom battle for the legendary treasure of the San Jose galleon.

The San Jose, a galleon of the Spanish treasure fleet, was sunk by HMS Expedition during a battle known as Wager’s Action off the coast of Cartagena, Columbia on June 8, 1708.

And now, over three centuries since that fateful day, three parties are waging a very different sort of battle for the remains of the San Jose and the vast cargo of jewels, gold ingots and other treasure worth up to $17 billion that the ship was carrying.

The Reason Why Gold & Silver Have Frustrated Investors Since 2011

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:
The biggest frustration to many precious metals investors, is why have the gold and silver prices under-performed the market since 2011? Actually, for gold it was since 2012. Even though gold hit a new record high of $1,900 in September 2011, its average annual price was higher in 2012 at $1,669 compared to $1,571 the prior year.

Regardless, the precious metals analysts back in 2012 were forecasting the market was going to experience even higher gold and silver prices, especially after the Fed announced QE 3 at the end of 2012. However, the precious metals community was taken by surprise as the gold and silver prices were hammered at the end of 2012 and into the beginning of 2013:

VIDEO: Cops Force K9 to Maul Innocent Man After Asking Them to Stay Out of His Yard


by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:
Disturbing video shows Florida cops unleash a K9 on an innocent man after he allegedly asked them to stay on the other side of his fence.

Bartow, FL — Marquis Wright, 21, will likely be getting a hefty check at the expense of Bartow taxpayers in the near future as the taxpayers are held accountable for the horrific actions of the Bartow Police Department. For asking police to stay out on the other side of his fence, Wright was attacked, tasered, mauled by a K9, and kidnapped.

When police came to his home on Monday, Wright had done nothing wrong, committed no crime, and had harmed no one. However, the fact that Wright was entirely innocent did not prevent his attack and subsequent arrest.

Will Trump Fire Yellen or Vice Versa

by Michael Pento, Market Oracle:
Citigroup’s Economic Surprise Index just hit its lowest level since August 2011. But this level of disappointment has ironically emboldened the Fed to step up its hawkish monetary rhetoric. The truth is that the hard economic data is grossly missing analyst estimates to the downside as the economy inexorably grinds towards recession. This anemic growth and inflation data should have been sufficient to stay the Fed’s hand for the rest of this year and cause it to forgo the unwinding of its balance sheet.

But that’s not what’s happening. Ms. Yellen and Co. are threatening at least one more rate hike and to start selling what will end up to be around $2 trillion worth of MBS and Treasuries before the end of the year–starting at $10 billion each month and slowly growing to a maximum of $60 billion per month.

But why is the Fed suddenly in such a rush to normalize interest rates and its balance sheet? Perhaps it is because Ms. Yellen wants to fire Trump before she hears his favorite mantra, “you’re fired,” when her term expires in early 2018. It isn’t a coincidence that these Keynesian liberals at the Fed started to ignore the weak data concurrently with the election of the new President.

14 Facts That Prove That America’s Absolutely Pathetic System Of Public Education Deserves An ‘F’ Grade


by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
One thing that almost everyone can agree upon is that our system of public education is broken. We spend far more money on public education than anyone else in the world, and yet the results are depressing to say the least. Considering how much we are putting into education, we should be producing the best students on the entire planet, but it just isn’t happening. Personally, I attended public schools from kindergarten all the way up through law school, and the quality of education that I received was extremely poor. Even on the collegiate level, most of the courses were so “dumbed down” that even the family dog could have passed them. And of course millions of other people all over the country would say the same sorts of things about their own educations. Many refer to what is happening to our society as “the dumbing down of America”, and if we don’t get things fixed the United States is on course to become a second class nation.
