The Fed Gives Wall Street Banks Okay to Prop Up Their Stock Prices

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

The U.S. Federal Reserve, the country’s central bank that is supposed to serve the interests of the nation, gave the largest Wall Street banks a big, irresponsible gift yesterday. The big banks will now be able to spend approximately $170 billion buying back their own stock and paying out increased dividends to shareholders instead of doing what banks are supposed to do: make loans to worthy businesses to stimulate the U.S. economy. But don’t expect to find that critical news on the front page of your local newspaper.

More Countries Start Exploring Alternatives to the US World Order

0

by Eric Zuesse, Strategic Culture:

There are two countries that more than others show how the Western world order is undergoing a profound change. Japan and Turkey occupy two distinct and diverse geographical areas, yet they share many of the same strategic choices about their future. Their geopolitical trajectory is increasingly drifting away from Washington and moving closer to China, Russia, India and Iran.

Both Japan and Turkey are two important states in the US’s strategy for controlling the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. Both countries have economies that are competitive in comparison to their neighbors, and both often conveniently find themselves allied to countries within Washington’s orbit. Japan has a good relationship with South Korea, and Turkey (until a few years ago) had a privileged relationship with Saudi Arabia and Israel. Keeping in mind that the US aims to prolong and consolidate its regional dominance, Washington has always tried to have excellent relations with these two countries as a way of ensuring its constant presence in regional affairs.

Clinton Foundation: Financial Conduit Between the Deep State & Shadow Government with Kevin Shipp

from Jason Goodman:

Kevin Shipp lays it all out in what can only be described as an epic presentation. As a former CIA agent, Kevin’s grasp of the inner workings of the deep state and the shadow government are second to none. Kevin sheds new light on the most powerful and prolific organized crime syndicate in human history.

You Got To Be Kidding Me….

I cannot at this point find independent confirmation that this jackass was in fact involved in Hillary’s campaign.  There are suggestions that he was, but needless to say the scrubbing (with a cloth) likely started fast-n-furious as soon as the arrest was announced….

Davis faced Manhattan federal court on Tuesday charged with enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity, attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, possession of child pornography and receipt and distribution of child pornography.

Now 43% of Germans Want Merkel to Resign – More than She Was Elected With!

0

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

The polls in Germany show that discontent is now rising and 43% of the people want Merkel to resign. She only won 32.8% to begin with. Germany is also shifting and nationalism is rising, which is what the AfD is all about these days. A YouGov survey showed that 43% of Germans now want her to leave office, compared with 42% who want her to remain. The no opinion came in at 15%. Even in her own CDU-CSU coalition, 27% want to see her resign.

REVOLUTION! THE NEW DARLING OF THE LIBERAL LEFT IS HARDCORE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ

0

by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:


Insurgent Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to take her budding political career all the way to The White House, her mother told The Post on Wednesday.
Hardcore Communist dictator Vladimir Lenin once said that “the goal of Socialism is Communism“. In other words, Socialism is halfway between American freedom and Russian oppression. The Democrat Party seems to be rebranding themselves as Democratic Socialists, and their on-fire rising star is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She is beautiful, well spoken and a hardcore Socialist who sat under Bernie Sanders. She is very open borders, dismantling ICE, ‘free’ Medicare for all, and views housing as a ‘right’.

BIS TAKES AIM AT CRYPTO-CURRENCIES

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

It’s rare – very rare – that I have anything good to say about the Bank of International Settlements, the central banksters’ central racketeeri… er…. the central banksters’ central bank. After all, what possible good can come out of an institution which is the brainchild of Montague Norman (head of the Bank of England in the inter-war period), Benjamin Strong (of the New York Federal Reserve, which, let it be recalled, is neither Federal nor a reserve), and Hjalmar Horace Greeley Schacht, about whose wheelings and dealings enough is known? But, just in case you’ve forgotten, dear old Hjalmar was the Reichsbank president who pops up at the oddest moments and oddest places, bless his heart. He was a financial advisor to Aristotle Onassis and Adolf Hitler(what a resume!); he was a key member of the group of Nazis …er… CIA operatives that suddenly appeared in Egypt after the overthrow of King Farouk, along with other Nazi…er… CIA luminaries like Otto Skorzeny and journalists like von Leers (of Goebbels’ old Propaganda Ministry, and, who, let it be noted, was a convert to Islam and who, go figure, translated the notorious Protocols of Zion into Arabic, and who, funny thing, ended up in Moscow working for Pravda or Tass or whatever, during the bad old bolshevist days of the Soviet Union); and all of them were sent to Egypt as a West German “delegation” by good old Konrad Adenauer. Schacht pops up again in Indonesia during the Suharto business in the late 1960s, and rumor has it he was talking about gold and bearer bonds, but that’s unsubstantiated, though I wouldn’t for a moment put it past him.

White Helmets observed preparing for new chemical weapons provocation

by Alex Christoforou, The Duran:

Just after the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) gets expanded capacities which included throwing blame at nations for use of chemical weapons, White Helmet personnel were observed by residents in Idlib preparing missiles with an unknown liquid while making use of protective outfits.

Based on the reports, it certainly sounds like the White Helmets are up to another staged chemical weapons attack to be blamed on either the Syrian government or the Russians, strategically positioned while the Syrian army is attempting to liberate key areas to the South, routing jihadist militants, declared to be ‘fleeing’ according to the MSM.

Russian News outlet TASS reports:

Five thousand inventions in limbo and under “secrecy orders” at the US Patent Office

0

by Jon Rappoport, No More Fake News:

In light of the resurgence in the news this past week regarding President Trump’s announcement of a proposed ‘Space Force’, as a new, sixth branch of the military (see here and here), I’m re-posting my article on secret patents… For many individuals, the notion of being in outer-space on various missions, brings their imaginations and energy to the fore, in tremendous ways — as in, The Flood. And, when that happens, then things start to happen — for the betterment of all of us. President Trump is reminding us of the imagination and energy inside each of us — and that, in-and-of-itself, is a gesture that should never be underestimated. With that said, what are some of the technologies needed for various successfully-conducted space missions? And, how many of those technologies are currently being withheld from the public in secret?

Someone Is Going To Snap – SC Justice Anthony Kennedy Retires, President Trump Will Get Another Supreme Court Pick And Liberals Are Melting Down

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Over the past week the Supreme Court has handed down rulings on a number of high profile and controversial cases, where they sided with a Christian baker that would not provide a custom wedding cake to a same-sex couple due to his religious beliefs (though he did not refuse to serve them in his store), sided with an anti-abortion crisis pregnancy center over California going too far to regulate them, upheld President Trump’s travel ban while asserting he held the authority in securing the nation, among other rulings to which liberal websites claimed “conservatives win.”

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 split, that state government workers could not be forced to pay fees to Unions.

“This procedure violates the First Amendment and cannot continue,” Associate Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the majority opinion. “Neither an agency fee nor any other payment to the union may be deducted from a non-member’s wages, nor may any other attempt be made to collect such a payment, unless the employee affirmatively consents to pay.”

OPIOD CRISIS: US Justice Dep’t Brings Down The Hammer on Opiod-Peddling Doctors… & More

from Zero Hedge:

With the opioid crisis still in full swing (and researchers reporting on Wednesday 70,000 opioid-related deaths that were not added to official statistics over the past 20 years) The Department of Justice announced on Thursday the conclusion of a year-long crackdown on opioid over-prescribers that led to the indictment of more than 600 people – including 76 doctors – on health-care fraud charges. All told, the DOJ found that the crimes resulted in more than $2 billion in losses for Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare, as well as private insurers.

THE NUMBER OF DEMS WHO WANT HILLARY TO RUN IN 2020 SHOULD MAKE ALL TRUMP SUPPORTERS CHEER

by Benny Johnson, The Daily Caller:

The 2020 presidential election is more than two years away, yet the jockeying for frontrunner status among Democrats is well underway.

Yahoo News released new polling from Harvard Thursday that indicated that former Vice President Joe Biden is the early frontrunner for the Democrat nomination to go against Trump. 32% of those polled preferred Biden in a head to head match-up with Trump.

However, the polling also found that a surprising 18% of Democrats would favor a rematch of 2016. Hillary Clinton edged her way into the runner-up slot. Clinton’s 2016 upset at the hands of Trump was perhaps the most stunning election loss in the modern era.
