Dutch family found living in cellar for 9 YEARS waiting for ‘end of days’ & unaware other people still existed

0

from RT:

A family of six has been rescued from the hidden cellar of a Dutch farmhouse after the eldest son escaped and wandered into a local pub to seek help. They had lived in total isolation for nine years, ‘waiting for the end of time.’

Police descended upon the isolated farmhouse in Ruinerwold, Netherlands after the son, now 25, escaped on Sunday night and ran to a nearby pub for help. Explaining he had left at night because it was “not possible during the day,” the man – dirty, unkempt and confused, according to the pub owner – said he lived on the farm with his brothers and sisters and that he “wanted to end the way they were living.”

Due To The Weather, Midwest Farmers Fear Widespread Crop Failures And A “Record-Low” Harvest In 2019

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Snow usually blankets the Upper Midwest around the first week of November, and so that means that many farmers in the Midwest only have about two weeks to salvage what they can before everything is lost.  The unprecedented October blizzard that we just witnessed dumped massive amounts of snow on millions upon millions of acres of crops from Colorado to Minnesota.  Even if the weather is absolutely perfect between now and November 1st, farmers are still “expecting massive crop losses”. In fact, one South Dakota lawmaker told the press that the crop losses will be “as devastating as we’ve ever seen”.  And as you will see below, even parts of the Midwest that didn’t get hammered by the recent blizzard are potentially facing “record-low” harvests this year.  We have never seen a year this bad for Midwest farmers in modern American history, but if the weather does not cooperate things could rapidly get much, much worse over the next two weeks.

In this segment, they discuss the rise of China, its large purchases of gold, and Alasdair’s belief that China may one day announce that it has over 20,000 tons of gold. Should Beijing do this, the dollar is toast, he says.

FED REPOS SIGNAL END Of Fiat Federal Reserve Notes

by Wayne Jett, Classial Capital:

For weeks, financial observers have been agitated by astonishingly high sums of Federal Reserve Notes (“hundreds of billions of dollars”) moving from the Federal Reserve to borrowers under lending instruments known as repurchase agreements, or “repos.” On September 17, e.g., the Fed created and loaned $53 billion to unnamed parties and, on September 18, an additional $75 billion. Those two days are the mere tip of the iceberg. Who are the borrowers and why is the Fed providing them so much money?

Venezuelan Assemblyman: I Suggest Bernie Sanders ‘Go to Venezuela Without Bodyguards’ for a Week

by Nicholas Ballasy, PJ Media:

Jose Guerra, a member of the National Assembly legislature in Venezuela, told PJM that Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) should live in Venezuela for an extended period of time without bodyguards to see how bad the humanitarian crisis is in the country under Nicolas Maduro’s dictatorship.

Guerra was asked for his opinion of politicians such as Sanders not referring to Maduro as a dictator.

“Maybe they misunderstand what is going on in Venezuela. It’s a dictatorship. There’s no power separation and more than 400 political prisoners that have been prosecuted like me. It’s a new dictatorship,” Guerra said during a recent video interview. “Those people should go to Venezuela and live in Venezuela for a couple of weeks in order to have a very good picture of what is going on in Venezuela. I suggest that they go to Venezuela.”

Fake News, Fake Polls, and Now, Fake History

by Wayne Madsen, Strategic Culture:

Donald Trump, who believes everything that is real is fake and everything that is fake is real, has delved into another academic discipline for which he believes he is an eminent expert. After promulgating his own fake weather forecasts, political opinion polls, and news, Trump has now proclaimed his own fake history. After abandoning to invading Turkish forces the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) forces, who have been allied with US Special Forces battling the Islamic State caliphate jihadists in Syria, Trump stated, “They [the Kurds] didn’t help us in the World War II, they didn’t help us with Normandy, as an example.”

DC’s Atlantic Council Raked in Funding from Hunter Biden’s Corruption-Stained Ukrainian Employer While Courting His VP Father

by Max Blumenthal, Consortium News:

Max Blumenthal reports on the think tank’s shady arrangement with Burisma, the gas company at the center of  “Ukrainegate.” 

With its relentless focus on corruption in Russia and Ukraine, the Atlantic Council has distinguished itself from other top-flight think tanks in Washington. Over the past several years, it has held innumerable conferences and panel discussions, issued a string of reports, and published literally hundreds of essays on Russia’s “kleptocracy” and the scourge of Kremlin disinformation.

In Depth Analysis Of The Failed Attempt To Overthrow The Results Of The 2016 Election: Impeachment Already Backfiring On Democrats As Trump & RNC Donations Spike & Swing Voters Accuse Dems Of Ignoring Important Issues

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Within 36 hours of Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announcing an “impeachment inquiry,” President Trump and the RNC hauled in $13 million in donations. $5 million from online donors in all 50 states, $5 million from a fundraiser, and another $3 million from a breakfast event.

After the announcement, Democrats also returned to their home states and were faced with anti-impeachment protests from their own constituents, especially “red state Democrats,” who won elections in conservatives districts.

Fed Set to Launch “Massive” Bond-Buying Program — In Other Words QE

by Peter Schiff, Schiff Gold:

The Federal Reserve is set to begin what MarketWatch article called a “massive” bond-buying program.

Jerome Powell announced the program last Tuesday and the central bank released more details about the plan on Friday. The Federal Reserve will buy $60 billion in short-term Treasury bills each month. According to a statement, the purchases will continue, “at least into the second quarter of next year.” That would amount to around $400 billion worth of Treasurys added to the Fed’s balance sheet.

Historic Midwest Blizzard Has Farmers “Expecting Massive Crop Losses – As Devastating As We’ve Ever Seen”

0

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

An unprecedented October blizzard that hit just before harvest time has absolutely devastated farms all across the U.S. heartland.  As you will see below, one state lawmaker in North Dakota is saying that the crop losses will be “as devastating as we’ve ever seen”.  This is the exact scenario that I have been warning about for months, and now it has materialized.  Due to endless rain and horrific flooding early in the year, many farmers in the middle of the country faced very serious delays in getting their crops planted.  So we really needed good weather at the end of the season so that the crops could mature and be harvested in time, and that did not happen.  Instead, the historic blizzard that we just witnessed dumped up to 2 feet of snow from Colorado to Minnesota.  In fact, one city in North Dakota actually got 30 inches of snow.  In the end, this is going to go down as one of the worst crop disasters that the Midwest has ever seen, and ultimately this crisis is going to affect all of us.

Voters Shun Elites: New Iowa Poll Shows Rep. Steve King Holds Sizable Lead on Primary Opponents – 74% of Voters Stand with King over Hacks at NY Times

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Good news for our friend Steve King!

A new poll finds Rep. Steve King (R-IA) leading bigly in the Republican primary in Western Iowa.

And, better yet, Iowa voters trust Rep. King over the horrid smear merchants at The New York Times.

Wall Lake, I.A. – A new poll was released from Congressman Steve King’s campaign on Monday, October 7, which demonstrates the congressman’s strong support from primary voters. This poll was conducted by G1 Survey Research and asks voters who they support in the 2020 primary. The poll also surveyed voters on their reaction to the New York Times hit piece that attempted to paint Congressman King as a racist and a white nationalist.
