Investors Beware: “The World Economy Is Headed For A Recession In 2019 Unless Something Happens”

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Global economic activity has been slowing down dramatically in recent months, and now the mainstream media is filled with dire warnings that a global recession is dead ahead in 2019.  And without a doubt, things do not look good right now as economic numbers from all over the globe just get bleaker and bleaker.  China’s trade numbers are imploding, Germany is “careening towards recession”, and the government shutdown in the United States is taking a huge toll on the U.S. economy.  In past years, the mainstream media usually tried to put a positive spin on any bad numbers, but now their mood seems completely different.  For example, in a Daily Mail article that was just posted we are told that “the world economy is headed for a recession in 2019 unless something happens”…

Viva La Yellow Vests!!!! Anti-Globalist Movement Receives Overwhelming Support By Populists On The Right And The Left As U.S. Media Ignores The Popularity

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

In November 2018, a true grassroots movement began in France, where each weekend since November 17, 2018, mass demonstrations were held with people wearing Yellow Vests, which was chosen as a symbol because by law all French motorists to have the high-visibility vests in their vehicles when driving.

The protesters had a variety of grievances with the government, but it all comes down to the working class are protesting the global elite. As Glenn Reynolds describes it over at USA Today, “It’s not the kind of class struggle that Karl Marx wrote about, with workers and peasants facing off against rapacious capitalists, but it is a case of today’s ruling class facing disaffection from its working class.”

The Yellow Vest protests rapidly started spreading across Europe, with other issues cited, dependent on the country in question, but there is no doubt it is a populist movement opposing globalist policies.

New Revelation that Ohr Warned FBI Brass About Steele Dossier Before Initial FISA Warrant DESTROYS Claims in Schiff’s Junk Countermemo

by Cristina Laila, The Gateway Pundit:

According to a new report out by award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon, former top DOJ official, Bruce Ohr warned FBI and DOJ officials that Steele’s dossier was connected to Hillary Clinton and cautioned them it may be biased — weeks BEFORE they obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page.

Bruce Ohr’s testimony to congressional investigators destroys Rep. Adam Schiff’s efforts to downplay Ohr’s role and interactions with Christopher Steele. Ohr’s testimony also pokes holes in Schiff’s claims that Bruce Ohr didn’t brief the FBI on his contacts with Steele and the dossier until AFTER the election and AFTER the initial FISA warrant was obtained on Carter Page.

How Gun Control Became an Instrument of Tyranny in Venezuela

by José Niño, Mises:

Is Venezuela paying the price for adopting gun control?

The shocking nature of Venezuela’s economic collapse has been covered ad nauseam. However, one aspect of the Venezuelan crisis that does not receive much coverage is the country’s gun control regime.

Fox News recently published an excellent article highlighting Venezuelan citizens’ regret over the gun control policies the Venezuelan government has implemented since 2012. Naturally, this regret is warranted. The Venezuelan government is among the most tyrannical in the world, with a proven track record of violating basic civil liberties such as free speech, debasing its national currency, confiscating private property, and creating economic controls that destroy the country’s productivity.

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Scientists are calling it “the insect apocalypse”, and it has extremely serious implications for the future of our planet.  All over the globe, insect populations are plummeting dramatically.  And since insects are at the very foundation of the global food chain, that is really bad news for all of us.  In fact, one expert described what is happening to the global insect population as “hyper-alarming”.  If we continue down the path that we are currently on, a bleak, apocalyptic future for our planet is all but assured.
