China and Russia Are Doing the 2-Step to Bring Down the US Economy

1

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
The American economy is on the rocks. Most would tell you that it is because our government and its citizens have acquired massive debt. That is only part of the picture. At the present moment, China and Russia are doing their version of the two-step to take down the US economy. Make no mistake about it, this is economic war and it is leading to World War III.

China and Russia’s Economic Assault on the US

Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa-BRICS

When it became obvious for all with eyes to see, Russia and China led the initial assault upon the dollar by challenging the supremacy of the Petrodollar. Briefly, for those that do not know their economic history, the globalists, in 1944, decided that the world would use the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. With a coming global industrialization movement, there was a need for a stable currency to underwrite the growth. The only major country untouched by the ravages of World War II was the United States. Therefore, it was decided that all nations that would purchase oil, in their attempt to further industrialize, must do so with the dollar. The international purchasing of the dollar, known as the Petrodollar, saved the US economy because we had abandoned the gold standard under FDR during the Great Depression. The Petrodollar is the only backing that our dollar enjoys and now it is being threatened.

Cashless Society Alert: Visa Will Be Giving Up To $500,000 To Restaurants That Go ‘100{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} Cashless’

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
The push toward a cashless society is becoming more of a shove. Before today I had never heard of “The Visa Cashless Challenge”, but after reading about it I have to say that I am quite alarmed. Visa is trying to “encourage” businesses to go cashless, and one of the ways that they will be doing this is by “awarding up to $500,000 to 50 eligible US-based small business food service owners who commit to joining the 100{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} cashless quest”. The food industry is still one of the last bastions where cash is used very heavily, and so it makes sense that Visa would want to target that segment. Of course the more people that use cards to pay for meals, the more money that Visa will make.

DOD and HUD Missing BILLIONS: Supporting Documentation

by Catherine Austin Fitts, Solari.com:

Thanks to Dr. Mark Skidmore and his graduate students we are publishing a list of the supporting documentation for undocumentable adjustments identified at DOD and HUD from fiscal 1998-2015.

Dr. Skidmore is the Director of the North Central Regional Center for Rural Development at Michigan State University and Professor and Morris Chair in State and Local Gov’t Finance and Policy.

Our gratitude for his efforts to understand and document this phenomenon is “off the charts”! We will be adding additional files and information as they find them.

WATCH: Woman Brutally Assaulted for Allegedly Selling Flowers With No Permit

0

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:
A disturbing video shows a Perris police officer assaulting a woman for allegedly selling flowers without paying the state first.

Perris, CA — In the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice. A video published to Facebook this week shows a Perris police officer assault a woman who was selling flowers on the side of the road — because she apparently failed to pay the State for the privilege.

The video does not tell the entire story. However, it starts as the officer is grabbing a woman who is holding multiple sets of flowers, clearly arranged for sale on the roadside. So, based on the multiple instances previously covered by the Free Thought Project, we can assume that she was approached for the selling of flowers without a permit, especially considering the officers are not from ICE.

Perfect Storm – This Fourth Turning has Over a Decade of Continuous Storms to Come

by James Quinn, Market Oracle:
Several weeks ago I had to drive west on the Pennsylvania Turnpike to pick up my son after his sophomore year at Penn State. I’ve made this trip a dozen times over the last few years, since this is my second son attending Penn State, with a third starting in the Fall. It’s a tedious, boring, protracted, four hour trek through the rural countryside of the Keystone State. During these trips my mind wanders, making connections between the landscape and the pressing issues facing the world. I can’t help but get lost in my thoughts as the miles accumulate like dollars on the national debt clock.

More often than not I end up making the trip in the midst of bad weather. And this time was no different. The Pennsylvania Turnpike is a meandering, decades old, dangerous, mostly two lane highway for most of its 360 mile span. Large swaths of the decaying interstate are under construction, as the narrative about lack of infrastructure spending is proven false by visual proof along the highways and byways of America.

Russia Paranoid Congressman Admits that Hillary Clinton and DNC Colluded With Ukraine (Video)

Adam Schiff is troubled by the collusion between the DNC and Ukraine.

Democrat Congressman, and outspoken Russia-hater, Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been forced to admit that on ABC’s “This Week” that collusion between the DNC and Ukraine is an issue.

During an interview with Jon Karl, Schiff had to concede that the boomerang effect of trying to tie Trump to Russia with 9 months of investigations and zero evidence has resulted in tying Hillary Clinton and the DNC in factual, documented election meddling with the putsch government in Ukraine, all thanks to a Politico investigation way back in January

Ex-Goldman Partner: Globalist Gary Cohn Vowed to Block Trump’s Nationalist Agenda

by Tony Lee, Breitbart:
President Donald Trump’s National Economic Council director Gary Cohn reportedly vowed to a former Goldman Sachs partner that he would block Trump’s nationalist agenda from being implemented.

A former Goldman Sachs executive told Vanity Fair for a recent profile that Cohn has been working with Jared Kushner, who is reportedly “starstruck with” Goldman Sachs globalists, and fellow former Goldman Sachs executive Dina Powell in order to temper the “reactionary influence of people around the president” like “Peter Navarro, head of the National Trade Council” and White House chief strategist Steve K. Bannon.
