U.S. House Financial Services Committee Needs New Leadership

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall Street On Parade:
When members of the U.S. House Financial Services Committee question Fed Chair Janet Yellen this morning following her testimony on monetary policy, many Republicans on the panel will be posturing for their money masters who fund their political campaigns rather than asking questions that benefit the average American.

You can tell that there has been a Koch Network-corporate takeover of the House Financial Services Committee by the statement that its Chairman, Jeb Hensarling, plastered on the front page of the Committee’s web site following the heroic actions of the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Richard Cordray, on Monday. Cordray reopened the nation’s courts to millions of Americans who have been the victims of predatory actions by the banks that fund Hensarling’s seat in Congress.

Police Body Cameras To Be Equipped With Facial Recognition

by Nicholas West, Activist Post:
Given the steady roll-out of biometrics in banking, personal computing, and travel as of late, it seemed to be just a matter of time before police were equipped the latest biometric ID technology.

Defense One reports that,

Device-maker Motorola will work with artificial intelligence software startup Neurala to build “real-time learning for a person of interest search” on products such as the Si500 body camera for police, the firm announced Monday.

How Governments Can Kill Cash

by Jim Rickards, DailyReckoning:
The global elites are using negative interest rates to do the same thing as inflation — make your money disappear. One way to avoid negative interest rates is to go to physical cash. In order to prevent that option, the elites have launched a war on cash.

The war on cash has two main thrusts. The first is to make it difficult to obtain cash in the first place. U.S. banks will report anyone taking more than $3,000 in cash as engaging in a “suspicious activity” using Treasury Form SAR (Suspicious Activity Report).

The second thrust is to eliminate large-denomination banknotes. The U.S. got rid of its $500 note in 1969, and the $100 note has lost 85{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of its purchasing power since then. With a little more inflation, the $100 bill will be reduced to chump change.

Brain-computer hookup equals mainstream news

0

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:
There is a great deal of “utopian research” going on in the area of artificial intelligence (AI) merging with the brain.

Exuberant cheerleaders like Ray Kurzweil are quite confident we are approaching a moment when a computer will exhibit all the power of the human brain.

The definition of “power” in this context is fuzzy. But Kurzweil and others are sure we’re about to uncover the “algorithm” that underlies all brain activity.

They couldn’t be more wrong. Neuroscience has barely scratched the surface of understanding how the brain operates. Cracking the code is not on the horizon.

Most importantly: how would a brain-computer interface work? Hook up your brain to a super-computer, and how does your brain absorb the computer’s data, and how does it make the data known to YOU, the user?

Environmental Advocates Murdered At Alarming Rates Last Year, Analysis Reveals

by Brianna Acuesta, True Activist:
Nearly 4 were killed every week last year.

Anyone can be an environmentalist these days, but it’s those that go above and beyond to protect nature and wildlife that are truly at risk, according to the watchdog group Global Witness. The group uses a number of resources to uncover corruption and advocate for transparency in the mining, logging, oil and gas sectors and has also turned their attention to the number of environmentalists that are murdered annually.

According to the non-profit group, two hundred environmentalists, wildlife rangers, and indigenous leaders were killed in 2016, which adds up to nearly 4 every week. These deaths were classified as murders, and The Guardian has teamed up Global Witness to accurately count the deaths that occur in 2017. By the end of May, 98 killings were identified.

The truth is, the EU could vanish tomorrow, and the individual nations of Europe would find ways to connect, cooperate, and do business

I’ll get to the European Union in a minute, but first a bit of background.

System building—how do you do it? In particular, how do you build a perverse structure?

There are three sequential steps:

One: Secretly create the system.

Two: Once it’s up and running and established, act as if you’re a mere participant in the system.

Child Trafficking is Real – We Need Your Help

0

by Douglas J. Hagmann, HomelandSecurityUS:
Human sex trafficking is real. Contrary to what has been reported, “Pizzagate” is real, but it has unfortunately and deliberately mischaracterized by the media to deflect from the larger issue of “Pedogate.” High-powered individuals are involved in this activity, from the rich and powerful to those in elected positions in government. Meanwhile, detractors, mockers and scoffers are busily trying to malign this reality using various deflective tactics.

As regular listeners to the Hagmann Report know, we have organized a team of investigative specialists under the Northeast Intelligence Network that are utilized in a variety of venues to expose corruption and criminality that is left uncovered by the corporate media. These investigators are some of the top specialists in their respective fields, operating anonymously as they work behind enemy lines. They selflessly volunteer their time, whether such is spent infiltrating Communist/Revolutionary groups inside the U.S., or in this case, pursuing pedophiles to expose their evil deeds.

“Demand Is Set To Explode” – Nevada’s Recent Marijuana Shortages Are Nothing Compared to What’s Coming…

by James Burgess, SHTF Plan:
The biggest multi-decade opportunity for investors right now is the Canadian government’s legislation to legalize recreational marijuana by this time next year—and the first companies to win government approval will be the high-risers.

In a sector that’s already seen stocks bust the borders with 1000{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} spikes, there is one company that currently has 2 of the only 50 licenses to cultivate in Canada, positioning itself to burst out of the gates as new legislation creates a multi-billion-dollar industry over night.

With one of the largest land packages to build cultivation facilities and 2 current licensed facilities located in two provinces in Canada, small-cap Invictus MD (TSX:IMH.V; OTC:IVITF) is set to rise.

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.
