Ten Years After the Last Meltdown: Is Another One Around the Corner?

by Ron Paul, Ron Paul Institute:

September marked a decade since the bursting of the housing bubble, which was followed by the stock market meltdown and the government bailout of the big banks and Wall Street. Last week’s frantic stock market sell-off indicates the failure to learn the lesson of 2008 makes another meltdown inevitable.

In 2001-2002 the Federal Reserve responded to the economic downturn caused by the bursting of the technology bubble by pumping money into the economy. This new money ended up in the housing market. This was because the so-called conservative Bush administration, like the “liberal” Clinton administration before it, was using the Community Reinvestment Act and government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make mortgages available to anyone who wanted one — regardless of income or credit history.

These international borders have become “no rights zones”

0

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:

On June 15, 1215, King John sat in a field in Runnymede, England, surrounded by angry nobles.

His Barons—the big landowners throughout England—had rebelled and seized London, forcing King John to sign an agreement guaranteeing certain rights to the people of England… and restrictions of his power.

This agreement was called the Magna Carta. And it would become one of the most important documents in history.

Centuries later in 1678, Charles II was King of England. Like many kings, Charles was terrible with money.

TSA Announces “biometrics vision for all commercial aviation travelers”

from Activist Post:

Activist Post Editor’s Note: As we’ve been covering for some time, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has a mandate that’s been 15 years in the making to integrate government databases for ID verification. The plan always has been to make this a requirement for passengers, and it has started rolling out in select areas. Furthermore, private companies have been enlisted to ensure that there is a “quick and easy roll out across U.S. airports,” according to Jim Peters, chief technology officer for SITA, one of the information technology companies working with airlines.

Homeland Security was explicit in their 18-page memo from June 2017 that “the only way for an individual to ensure he or she is not subject to collection of biometric information when traveling internationally is to refrain from traveling.” Now, according to a new “Biometric Roadmap” from the TSA, detailed below by The Identity Project, we can see the level of commitment to accelerating incremental enforcement for all domestic and international air travel (“notional phased approach” in TSA-speak).  Of course when it comes to the TSA, airports may not be the final destination. Biometric ID is already spreading from planes, to trains, to events and to conferences.

Keith Weiner: The Enemies Of Gold Who Say “You Can’t Eat Gold”

by Keith Weiner, via Silver Doctors:

Keith explains why people who say “you can’t eat gold” completely miss the point. Here’s how to face anybody who unleashes that little zinger of a claim…

“You can’t eat gold.” The enemies of gold often unleash this little zinger, as if it dismisses the idea of owning gold and indeed the whole gold standard. It is a fact, you cannot eat gold. However, it dismisses nothing.

This gives us an idea. Let’s tie three facts together. One, you can’t eat gold. Two, gold is in backwardation in Switzerland. And three, speculation is a bet on the price action.

The fact that gold is inedible is supposed (by the enemies of liberty) to be proof positive that a gold standard wouldn’t work. Of course, there’s always the retort: You can’t eat dollars!

The Washington Post, as it Shames Others, Continues to Pay and Publish Undisclosed Saudi Lobbyists and Other Regime Propagandists

by Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept:

IN THE WAKE of the disappearance and likely murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, some of the most fervent and righteous voices demanding that others sever their ties with the Saudi regime have, understandably, come from his colleagues at that paper. “Why do you work for a murderer?,” asked the Post’s long-time Editorial Page Editor Fred Hiatt, addressing unnamed hypothetical Washington luminaries who continue to take money to do work for the despots in Riyadh, particularly Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, or “MbS” as he has been affectionately known in the western press.

Concealing Handguns – Pat Cascio

0

by Pat Cascio, Survival Blog:

Carrying concealed is no easy task, if don’t do it properly. We’re taking a close look at some clothing and accessories today that aids in concealing your handgun on a daily basis.

Conceal With The Best, Not Necessarily Easiest

I’ve always looked for the best, not necessarily easiest, method of carrying a handgun concealed, as most of the work I’ve done in law enforcement and in private security/private investigations have called for working in “soft clothes” rather than a uniform of any type. I’ve lost track of the number of times over the years I’ve spotted a “concealed” handgun on someone. That telltale bulge under their shirt or jacket, or even spotting the “concealed” handgun, is not good. You don’t want to draw attention to the fact that your are carrying, period!

Hurricanes Give Americans Taste of Disaster Washington’s Wars Bring to Others – Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts, via The Burning Platform:

Florida residents from the eastern part of Panama City Beach to Apalachicola now know what a war zone is like. 750,000 people are without power and without water. Thousands of homes and commercial structures no longer exist. Mexico Beach has been more or less wiped off the face of the earth. Many areas are still inaccessible. Many people are still trapped in place because of debris and downed trees across roads.

Families searching for missing family members are at times obstructed by police trying to keep looters and gawkers out of the area and trying to save what little traffic capacity there is for emergency and repair crews. It is difficult to image people so lacking in humanity that they go to loot what little remains of the property of such damaged people.

The Dark Story Behind Global Warming aka Climate Change

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

The recent UN global warming conference under auspices of the deceptively-named International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded its meeting in South Korea discussing how to drastically limit global temperature rise. Mainstream media is predictably retailing various panic scenarios “predicting” catastrophic climate change because of man-made emissions of Greenhouse Gases, especially CO2, if drastic changes in our lifestyle are not urgently undertaken. There is only one thing wrong with all that. It’s based on fake science and corrupted climate modelers who have reaped by now billions in government research grants to buttress the arguments for radical change in our standard of living. We might casually ask “What’s the point?” The answer is not positive.

The South Korea meeting of the UN IPCC discussed measures needed, according to their computer models, to limit global temperature rise tobelow  1.5 Centigrade above levels of the pre-industrial era. One of the panel members and authors of the latest IPCC Special Report on Global Warming, Drew Shindell, at Duke University told the press that to meet the arbitrary 1.5 degree target will require world CO2 emissions to drop by a staggering 40% in the next 12 years. The IPCC calls for a draconian “zero net emissions” of CO2 by 2050. That would mean complete ban on gas or diesel engines for cars and trucks, no coal power plants, transformation of the world agriculture to burning food as biofuels. Shindell modestly put it, “These are huge, huge shifts.”

The People “Stopping Election Interference” Are the Ones Who Are Actually Rigging the Election

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Last week, Mark Zuckerberg made the media rounds to give a rather shady explanation of why Facebook suddenly closed hundreds of incredibly popular pages in what’s being called The Alternative Media Purge. Zuckerberg accused the closed pages, many of which had millions of fans, of spreading “political spam.”

Ironically, many of the pages that were shut down had absolutely nothing to do with politics or elections, unless you include the fact that they recommended skipping the entire circus. None of these pages were accused of being “the Russians,” who were the scapegoat of the last surprise presidential election results. A couple of the things that many of the pages did have in common, incidentally, were an anti-war outlook and a police watchdog mentality.

Video Shows ‘Antifa Started The Fight’ In NYC, But NYPD Looks to Charge 9 Proud Boys

by Chris Menahan, Information Liberation:

Gavin McInnes says newly released surveillance video shows it was “antifa who started the fight” Friday night in New York City between masked antifa and the Proud Boys.

The video released by the NYPD on Monday shows a group of masked suspected antifa approaching towards the Proud Boys as they were leaving a speech put on by McInnes and one suspected antifa member can be seen throwing what may be a bottle at the Proud Boys before a fight breaks out.
