STUDY: Explosion In Antarctic Sea Ice Levels May Cause Another Ice Age, Not Warming

by Eric A. Blair, The Gateway Pundit:

One thing we know for sure is that we don’t know for sure.

While Democrats and liberals claim “global warming” is settled science, reports come out weekly that deliver different data. The climate was indeed warming throughout the 1990s, but that then dropped off.

Now, a new study finds that an increase in sea ice may lead to another ice age.

Russia Sends Ten Subs Into North Atlantic in Biggest Drill Since Cold War

from Russia Insider:

The most extensive Russian underwater exercise since the end of the Cold War is currently underway in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. No less than 10 Russian Navy submarines are reported to be involved, eight of which are nuclear powered, according to Norwegian intelligence.

The massive exercise is thought to include tests of new weapons and stressing of capabilities of individual classes of submarines involved, including long-duration, deeply submerged operations. The exercise is also likely to test U.S. and NATO forces’ ability to track Russia’s most capable boats as they push through the Greenland, Iceland, United Kingdom Gap, better known as the GIUK Gap—a major strategic bottleneck that is closely monitored. If Russian submarines can break through undetected, they have a far better chance of disappearing into the Atlantic to go about their potentially very deadly business without being traced. During a time of war, this can include wreaking havoc on Allied shipping and naval flotillas and executing pinpoint attacks on key land targets.

US Federal Reserve Further Cuts Interest Rates, Third Time This Year

from Sputnik News:

The last time that the Federal Reserve reduced interest rates, the move was preceded by President Donald Trump criticising the its actions, demanding that it lower the rates to closer to zero. POTUS argued that the Fed is doing more harm to the American economy than China.

The US Federal Reserve has decided to further lower interest rates to the 1.5-1.75% range after previously cutting it to the 1.75-2% range in mid-September. According to the Fed’s statement, the decision will allow to “sustain the expansion” of the country’s economy.

It’s a Global Rate-Cutting Frenzy

by Peter Schiff, Schiff Gold:

As I write this, the Federal Reserve is in the midst of its October FOMC meeting. The central bank is widely expected to cut interest rates another 25 basis points. If the Fed follows through, it will be the third cut in three meetings, totaling 75 basis points since July.

Although the Fed continues to call this a “mid-cycle adjustment,” Peter Schiff called the rate cut in July the first one on the road to zero. There’s nothing so far to cast any doubt on that view.

Nolte: Counting the Ways the Washington Post Loves Them Some al-Baghdadi

by John Nolte, Breitbart:

As soon as I learned President Trump had ordered a successful mission to bag ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, I knew exactly how the corporate media would respond.

I knew the usual suspects at our failing, far-left, fake news outlets such as CNN, NBC News, the New York Times, and Washington Post, would attempt to spin one of America’s great days as the exact opposite. We would be told audacious lies about how taking out al-Baghdadi would only make things worse, only proves Trump’s Syria policy is a disaster, how this successful mission happened in spite of Trump, and that Trump’s perfectly-calibrated statement and willingness to answer the media’s questions at length would be twisted into a crass victory lap.

This Is What’s in My International Travel Survival Kit

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

As I travel through Europe, a lot of folks are asking how I can be prepped. When traveling, your choices should lean more toward survival than prepping. (I wrote about the differences between the two here.) And for that, you need a small amount of extremely versatile gear.

In this article, I’ll share what I brought with me and why. I spoke to some pros like Toby Cowern and Selco while making my final choices and many other choices were based on what I learned in their urban survival course in Croatia.

I have an everyday carry kit that easily fits into my purse along with a light jacket. Secondarily, I have a bug-out kit with a few additional items I’d take if I made the decision to evacuate in a hairy situation. We’ll talk about the EDC first, then move on to the bug-out kit.
