Global Crop Failures Continue: In Australia This Is Going To Be The WORST HARVEST Ever Recorded


by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Global food production is being hit from seemingly every side.  Thanks to absolutely crazy weather patterns, giant locust armies in Africa and the Middle East, and an unprecedented outbreak of African Swine Fever in China, a lot less food is being produced around the world than originally anticipated.  Even during the best of years we really struggle to feed everyone on the planet, and so a lot of people are wondering what is going to happen as global food supplies become tighter and tighter.  The mainstream media in the United States is so obsessed with politics right now that they haven’t been paying much attention to this emerging crisis, but the truth is that this growing nightmare is only going to intensify in the months ahead.

Hispanic George Zimmerman Sues Two Presidential Candidates for Calling Him a White Supremacist


by Victoria Taft, PJ Media:

George Zimmerman, the man acquitted for shooting teenager Trayvon Martin in self-defense, is suing to claw back some of his reputation.

Zimmerman says Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg unfairly portrayed him on Twitter as guilty and as a white supremacist on what would have been Martin’s 25th birthday on February 5.

Buttigieg labeled Zimmerman a racist and white supremacist:

The Show Trial of A and B. – Kafka comes to The Hague

by Peter Hitchens, Daily Mail:

Why you should be worried

You might think that when two honest men, with nothing to gain and much to lose, speak the truth about a major scandal in a body which might one day decide between world war and peace, that the world would immediately do the right thing.

You would be utterly wrong.

In the movies, the dissenters would quickly be recognised as the heroes of the story, their bosses would admit to doing wrong. The media would celebrate their courage. And the matter would be set right.

Why the US Is Headed into Its Fourth Turning


by Doug Casey, International Man:

International Man: The economic, political, social, and cultural situation seems to have become increasingly volatile in the United States and more broadly in the West. Is this a unique situation or part of a recurring historical cycle?

Authors William Strauss and Neil Howe introduced a popular theory in their book, The Fourth Turning, outlining the recurring generational cycles that have occurred throughout American history.

Global Centralization Is The Cause Of Crisis – Not The Cure


by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:

Once you understand the globalist mindset, almost everything they do becomes rather robotic and predictable.  It should not be surprising that the World Health Organization (WHO), a branch of the United Nations, has been so aggressive in cheerleading for the Chinese government and its response to the coronavirus outbreak. After all, China’s communist surveillance state model is a beta test for the type of centralization that the UN wants for the entire planet. They certainly aren’t going to point out that it was China’s totalitarian system that allowed the outbreak to spread from the very beginning.

Bloomberg’s Rising Polls Show The Power Of Billionaire Narrative Control

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

Back in November Mike Bloomberg was polling at four percent nationally and had the highest disapproval rating of any potential Democratic presidential candidate, and understandably so; the man has a uniquely horrible record and no redeeming traits to speak of.

Now, after spending $400 million in broadcast, radio and cable ads, $42 million on Facebook ads, $36 million on Google ads, and an unknown fortune on other shady manipulations, a national Quinnipiac poll released last week put him at 15 percent nationally in the Democratic primary. This week national polls released by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist and Zogby put him at 19 and 20 percent, respectively.

Emerging Evidence on Continuing Allied Lies About the War in Syria


by James ONeill, New Eastern Outlook:

One of the clearest indicators of the legitimacy or otherwise of Western military actions is the coverage that is given to it by the western media. When evidence emerges that the given military action was at best ill-founded and more often blatantly illegal under international law, then the western media is silent as to any criticism. Alternatively, it gives undue prominence to self-serving and frequently blatant falsehoods about the actions in question.

Bill & Hillary Clinton were Regular Guests at Pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s bizarre cowboy-themed village

from True Pundit:

Bill and Hillary Clinton stayed at Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious ‘baby-making ranch’ almost every year after they left the White House, according to the disgraced financier’s estate manager.
