Prohibition NEVER Works: Banning Alcohol Didn’t Work, And Banning Guns Won’t Either

0

by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan:

They say those who don’t pay attention to history are destined to repeat it.  It seems like even though humans have paid attention, they somehow think the same things that failed in the past, like prohibition and communism, will magically work now.

Alcohol kills almost three times as many Americans as guns. Last year, about 33,000 people died of gunshot-related injuries, including those who shot themselves; suicide. When removing those who killed themselves only (again, suicide), that number drops to 15,549, by even anti-gun activists estimates.  To put that in perspective, this year’s flu and the vaccine to “prevent” said flu is more deadly. So far, it’s been killing an estimated 4,000 Americans per week. That’s roughly 16,000 per month, a number already higher than last year’s total “gun deaths” which include justified homicides (or self-defense.) You don’t have to be a genius at math to understand that “gun violence” isn’t really the epidemic the media wants you to believe.

By comparison, alcohol abuse killed nearly 88,000 people in 2015 in the United States. So why not ban booze? Because the United States tried that.  It was called prohibition, and it didn’t work.  It resulted in the government poisoning their own people: yes, the US government.  The same government that the anti-gun activists say wouldn’t do that to us. Rational humans would rather not see the government get a monopoly on guns. But the US has strayed rather far from logic, relying on emotional outbursts and teenage angst temper tantrums. 

Joe Joseph from the Daily Sheeple also brings an interesting point to consider. “Did you know, that alcohol is the number one underlying cause and factor behind crime in the US?” Alcohol is alone causes more harm to society than heroin, cocaine, and marijuana combined.

So where’s society’s outrage over alcohol abuse?  Why aren’t kids marching for alcohol control? Because prohibition doesn’t work. People who want to break the law and drink will do so.  People snort cocaine regardless of the fact that it’s illegal.  Where is society’s outrage at the right thing?

“Where are all the millions of dollars and campaign contributions and television ads trying to save people’s lives from the dangers of alcohol?” Joseph asks. “This is huge because we have to look at the facts. And the facts are: while it’s awful that these events take place, they’re anomalies in the grand scheme of things. Alcoholism is not an anomaly. It’s very present, ever present in our society and substance abuse is getting worse and worse and worse because the root cause isn’t being tackled.” The root cause is pain and voids within a person. The problem is that social engineering has created a god for people and that god is the government. And it’s a very poor substitute for actual spirituality, says Joseph.

GUCCI MODELS AT MILAN FASHION WEEK FEATURED CYBORGS CARRYING SEVERED HEADS FOR ‘FEMINIST MESSAGE’

0

by Geoffrey Grider, Now The End Begins:

ON WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON DURING MILAN FASHION WEEK, GUCCI STAGED A SPECTACULAR YET PECULIAR FASHION SHOW THAT INCLUDED “CYBORG” MODELS — WHICH, UPON A DEEPER LOOK, POSSESSED AN UNDERLYING METAPHORICAL FEMINIST MESSAGE.

“Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Timothy 3:3-5 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Cyborg models carrying severed heads preaching from the Feminist Manifesto paints a rather bleak vision of the future, but one that is exactly in line with how life will be in the time of Jacob’s trouble. Transhumanism is no longer science fiction but an abject fact of human life in the 21st century, and it will only get worse and weirder as time goes on. Does it seem to you like this lost and unsaved world is preparing to meet and live under Antichrist? You’d be correct. Good thing the Rapture of the Church comes first. 

In the Gucci show notes, creative director Alessandro Michele referenced A Cyborg Manifesto, written by Donna Haraway in 1984. In it, Haraway uses the concept of a “cyborg” to represent women, without the constraints of society’s traditional gender labels. As one Wired writer notes, the cyborg in Haraway’s piece “trashes the big oppositions between nature and culture, self and world that run through so much of our thought.”

It poses the idea that all of us are not “naturally made” — or rather, we are “constructed,” like a cyborg. And if “given the right tools, we can all be reconstructed.” That is to say, women aren’t born to be wives, born to work in the house, or “naturally” submissive and overly emotional people. Women can choose to be however they want to be.

Today, feminism is defined as “the advocacy of women’s rights on the ground of the equality of the sexes.” But in Gucci’s world, sexes and genders do not exist. So Michele raises a bigger question: Why let traditional gender constraints put forth by society stop women from moving forward with their goals and dreams?

Michele’s vision for Gucci includes models who are genderless: Men wear “women’s” clothing and vice versa, something he has done for several seasons now. He toys with the idea that in the future, traditional notions of men and women will no longer exist. As written in the show notes, “The collection goes further beyond, taking the shape of a genuine Cyborg Manifesto (D.J. Haraway), in which the hybrid is metaphorically praised as a figure that can overcome the dualism and the dichotomy of identity. The Cyborg, in fact, is a paradoxical creature keeping together nature and culture, masculine and feminine, normal and alien, psyche and matter.”

MICHELE CONTINUES, “GUCCI CYBORG IS POST-HUMAN: IT HAS EYES ON ITS HEADS, FAUN HORNS, DRAGON PUPPIES AND DOUBLING HEADS. IT’S A BIOLOGICALLY INDEFINITE AND CULTURALLY AWARE CREATURE.” HE REFERS TO THESE “GUCCI CYBORGS” AS MONGRELS, WHICH SUGGEST INDEFINABLE, INTERMIXED BREEDS.

In a show setting that mimicked a surgical operating room, models walked down the Gucci runway carrying their own severed “heads,” as well as an artificial baby dragon, chameleon, and snake, re-created for a different kind of world. The collection included Michele’s signature maximalist style, with beaded jackets layered atop patterned blouses and floral trousers underneath plaid skirts. Ruffled velvet dresses were styled with turbans, and knit balaclavas were paired with exaggerated metallic Victorian blouses.

This ‘Matrix-Shattering Event’ Would Lead To ‘The Great Awakening’ – Is President Trump Preparing To Take Down The ‘Clinton Crime Family’?

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

– If Hillary Is Arrested, Will Left Riot Violently In Streets Across America?

In this February 18th story over at the Daily Mail which Steve Quayle linked to on his website Monday they report a former pro wrestler has admitted to his role in the unsolved train track murders of two boys way back in 1987. 

Claiming that the deaths of Kevin Ives and Don Henry were linked to a cocaine smuggling ring and that the information he knows implicates a ‘criminal Arkansas politician’, the claims made by former WWE star Billy Jack Haynes were quickly labeled the ravings of a madman by the ‘Clinton echo chamber’. With Haynes story not even touched by the rest of the mainstream media despite the fact that the Daily Mail story didn’t even mention Bill or Hillary Clinton, that connection was left to the story commenters who quickly ‘piled on’ the ‘Clinton crime family’. The fact that this story even made it to the Daily Mail is stunning. A hint of things to come?  

While the deaths of Ives and Henry were first called a double suicide by the state of Arkansas medical examiner, a grand jury was brought up and found the deaths were likely the result of homicides instead and as the DM story reports, Haynes alleges that a far-reaching coverup orchestrated by that unnamed ‘criminal politician’ has been ongoing for the 30+ years since.

Is it just a coincidence that the governor of Arkansas in 1987 was Bill Clinton, where he was governor from 1983 to 1992? 

While of course the Clinton’s as a ‘crime family’ will never be covered by the mainstream media which has been helping them cover up their treason and corruption ever since, the very real ‘matrix’ that we’ve been living within as Americans for several decades may be about to be shattered and it’s clear by this new story over at Yahoo News which the Drudge Report linked to on Monday that the globalists will do everything in their power to stop this ‘great awakening’ as heard in the 1st video below from the American Intelligence Media youtube channel.

As Yahoo news reports, a new online game being launched on Tuesday which they claim “is aimed at inoculating people against the spread of so-called fake news” attempts to do so by allowing players of the game to become their own ‘fake news tycoons’. Actually encouraging these ‘players’ to create falsehoods and grow an army of followers who are also pushing their contrived fake news, it’s long been known that satan himself is the father of lies and anybody intentionally pushing lies or ‘fake news’ is doing his handiwork. How many of these ‘fake news’ stories will actually make it into cyberspace and go viral? From the Yahoo story.:

The exercise encourages participants, who are tasked with building audiences for their imaginary fake news sites, to stoke fear, anger and mistrust by simulating the manipulation of online content.

In the game they choose polarising falsehoods to publish, cultivate an army of Twitter bots, fabricate evidence, and propagate dubious articles and conspiracy theories. 

“If you know what it is like to walk in the shoes of someone who is actively trying to deceive you, it should increase your ability to spot and resist the techniques of deceit,” said Sander Van Der Linden, director of the university’s Social Decision-Making Lab.

If you too noticed the ‘vaccine symoblism’ being used, it’s not by accident as the Yahoo story goes on to report

“We want to help grow ‘mental antibodies’ that can provide some immunity against the rapid spread of misinformation,” she added. The psychological theory behind the effort is called “inoculation”. 

Researchers at Cambridge last year found that briefly exposing people to tactics used by fake news producers can act as a “psychological vaccine” against bogus anti-science campaigns. 

A pilot study conducted with teenagers in a Dutch high school used an early paper-and-pen trial of the online game, and showed the perceived “reliability” of fake news to be diminished in teens that played compared to a control group. 

“A biological vaccine administers a small dose of the disease to build immunity,” said Van Der Linden. 

“Similarly, inoculation theory suggests that exposure to a weak or demystified version of an argument makes it easier to refute when confronted with more persuasive claims.”

As Susan Duclos recently mentioned to me, it was way back in the 1980’s that then CIA head William Casey stated “We’ll Know Our Disinformation Program Is Complete When Everything the American Public Believes Is False”, a reality we’re quickly moving towards with the msm still running cover for the ‘Clinton crime family’ with any attempts to report upon their corruption called ‘conspiracy theory’. 

And as one commenter mentions on the Yahoo story, “Exactly what are these people calling “fake news”? Progressives act like anything they don’t agree with is fake news, while they fabricate smear stories intended to publicly destroy their conservative political opponents.” With websites like Snopes gatekeeping truth by calling the ‘Clinton body count’ a ‘conspiracy theory’ and no msm outlets investigating the still growing list of dead bodies piling up surrounding them, we see why lots of fake news online could help keep the American sheeple totally dumbed down to the truth. 

And with the msm still attempting to brainwash people, creating a ‘pseudo-reality’ as Susan Duclos reported Monday in this story on ANP, and now this ‘game’ coming out which encourages people to create ‘conspiracy theories’ and ‘fake news’ and pump it out into cyberspace further helping to distort reality, it’s easy to see how we’re zeroing in upon what Casey long ago warned of.

America’s elite thinks it has a divine right to rule the world

by Bryan MacDonald, RT:

America’s ruling class has a curious attitude to democracy. It seems to be interpreted as something that’s good for the US and its allies but bad for critters who won’t accept their role in the ‘America-led international order.’

First off, let me be clear. I think all foreign electoral interference is wrong. In any country. And if it’s eventually proven that Russians meddled in America’s 2016 presidential election, I certainly won’t condone it. But I’ve have always doubted that the Russian state organized some heinous plan to tilt the contest to Donald Trump, so I’ll be shocked if something of this nature is ever proven.

Instead, I’ve always imagined the greatest extent of Russian ‘interference’ was probably some half-baked playing around by private individuals. Something akin to a “social media marketing campaign,” as the New Yorker’s Adrian Chan believes. And on a relatively minute scale, to boot. Because – given the billions of dollars swirling around American stumping – anything bar a full-scale FSB/GRU, all-hands-on-deck operation would probably amount to little more than a hill of beans.

By the same token, I was stunned back in 2011 when the Moscow Times (a pro-US title, overwhelmingly written by Westerners, despite its name) reported how ex-vice president Joe Biden had told fringe Russian opposition figures that “it would be better for Russia if Putin did not run” in the 2012 election. Indeed, when you see the opprobrium directed today towards US Green leader Jill Stein for once attending an RT banquet where Putin was present, its shows one hell of a double standard.

Distant View

Being relatively new to Russia in those days, and far from Moscow, it also seemed bizarre when then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for a “full investigation” of alleged irregularities in 2011’s parliamentary elections. And, even more absurd, that she did it in front of Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister, at an OSCE meeting attended by 56 countries. Indeed, it seemed like a teacher wagging her finger at an errant student in front of his classmates, and not how you’d interact with the emissary of a powerful country.

At the time, something interesting happened. Many of my then-relatively new Russian friends had expressed concern about the vote, and a good few supported calls for a fresh ballot. However, once Clinton stuck her oar in, their anger switched to the American; with the attitude quickly transforming into outrage at her arrogance in trying to tell Russians how to manage their internal affairs. Last night, I reminded one of them, Vova, and he said: “Yeah, what did she think? That we were one of those sh*tty little countries the Americans can just push around?” This morning, he emailed me joking, “You know very well, I am not a huge fan of Putin but as soon as Hillary started that nonsense, it smelled to me of the Yeltsin years. I’d rather eat rats than go through that again.”

And this brings us to 1996. Back then, Russia’s economy was in serious trouble. American-backed neoliberal economic reforms had reduced ordinary Russians to penury. And Washington turned a blind eye when Yeltsin essentially dismantled the country’s nascent democracy in 1993, going so far as to take over the parliament in a tank battle, killing 187 people. He also banned opposition parties and newspapers. Of course, somewhat amazingly, Yeltsin is remembered as a “democrat” in the West – which is actually code for “he defended American interests.”

Anyway, by the spring of 1996, Yeltsin was in serious bother. The Communist Party, which had combusted in 1991, was back in business, with its new leader, Gennady Zyuganov, well ahead in the polls. And at this point, Uncle Sam got busy, in events which have been widely  catalogued and even spawned a Hollywood movie, with the tagline  “electing a Russian president, the American way.”

DHS TO PUBLISH PROOF OF MASSIVE DEM VOTER FRAUD IN 2016 – QANON

by Jerome Corsi, Infowars:

Reported: several million illegals voted, while legitimate ballots were thrown away

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) together with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the FBI are planning to publish in March a study of the 2016 elections that will demonstrate massive Democratic Party voter fraud of a magnitude sufficient to have influenced election outcomes.

On Jan. 3, 2018, President Trump signed an executive order disbanding the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, largely because states controlled by the Democrats refused to cooperate.

Many Democrats breathed a sigh of relief, thinking President Trump had given up his effort to uncover and correct the decades of Democratic Party voter fraud.

Little noticed was a provision in the executive order that tasked the Department of Homeland Security to review the presidential commission’s initial findings and to determine next courses of action.

Equally unnoticed by the mainstream media were news releases on Feb. 15 from the DNI and from DHS that briefings were being held with election officials in all 50 states on Feb. 16 and Feb. 18 to inform them of the initial conclusions of their on-going investigation into voting fraud during the 2016 election.

The outcomes of the DNI, DHS, and FBI investigations are expected to be disastrous for the Democratic Party, revealing precisely why Democratic-controlled states refused to cooperate with Trump’s presidential commission.

When Special Counsel Robert Mueller indicated last Friday some 13 Russians for trolling the Internet as the only evidence of “Russian Collusion” he could find after months of investigation that spent millions of dollars in taxpayer funds, the intelligence operative known as QAnon posted a preview of the DNI, DHS, and FBI conclusions.

As seen in this Internet posting, QAnon first cites Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein’s statement in announcing the indictment involving the 13 Russian trolls that: “There is no allegation in this indictment that any American was a knowing participant in this illegal activity.  There is no allegation in the indictment that the charged conduct altered the outcome of the 2016 election.”

That comes close to sounding the death knell for the “Russian Collusion” mainstream media hysteria we have endured since the 2016 election as a Democratic Party “hate-Trump” narrative for impeachment.

Next, QAnon makes clear the DNI, DHS, and FBI study will prove massive Democratic Party voter fraud, including the allowing of several millions of illegal immigrants to vote in direct contradiction of voting laws across the country.

QAnon wrote the following, apparently citing the DNI, DHS, and FBI study to be released next month:

In an effort to preserve the integrity of all U.S. elections, as ordered by the President of the United States, after an extensive investigation in select counties (the ‘sampling’), the DHS has concluded that while Russian entities (as outlined in Special Counselor Mueller’s investigation were complicit in attempting to undermine the presidential election of 2016) had no direct impact or bearing on the outcome of the presidential election, nor were any U.S. person(s) knowingly part of such an attempt to sabotage as it relates to the Russian investigation …

And:

… U.S. and other foreign entities (as further described within DHS (XXXX), acting outside of Russian agents, did attempt on numerous occasions, and were successful, in interfering w/ the presidential elections of 2016, Senate elections of [x, y, and z], [x] elections, whereby several million of illegal, non-resident ballots (the “irregularities”) were counted, while legal ballots were improperly tabulated and/or intentionally mishandled.  We believe these actions were a coordinated attack against the democracy of our country.

The QAnon post goes on to note the DHS will be submitting a final report to the White House, to the Department of Justice, and to other state and local agencies outlining findings next month.

The post further suggests that while the DNI, DHS, FBI study was limited to a sampling of 22 counties, the findings were so conclusive that a countrywide examination is mandated.

China’s Most Powerful Weapon in the Coming Trade War

by Nick Giambruno, International Man:

“When any market is down 90%, you’re obligated to go and investigate.”

That’s what Doug Casey often says. And it’s part of the reason I put my boots on the ground in China a few months ago.

As I told you yesterday, the country has a monopoly on a little-known resource market. For years, stocks in this sector only went down. The industry was left for dead… until recently.

The last time this happened, the price of this resource skyrocketed over 10 times almost overnight.

And, as I’ll show in a moment, I think there’s a strong chance a similar mania will start soon…

China’s Monopoly

Most people have never heard of the material China controls. But it’s essential to modern life.

It’s used to make crucial components for advanced electronics like iPhones, electric cars, flat-screen TVs, computers, and sophisticated military equipment—like guidance systems, drones, anti-missile systems, radars, and fighter jets.

The United States’ top-line fighter jet, the F-35, contains nearly 450 kilograms of this material.

There’s no substitute for this resource in these advanced electronics. The US military and US consumer depend on it.

The problem is that finding this material isn’t cheap. And once you find it, mining it is expensive and messy. It takes about 40 tonnes of rock (40,000 kilograms) to get only about 250 kilograms of this valuable material.

The costs are even higher if you separate the material from the ore in an environmentally friendly way.

But China is willing to do the dirty work.

Beijing helps by subsidizing the industry. Meanwhile, many companies in other countries—operating without hefty state subsidies—go bankrupt.

Plus, China doesn’t fret about the environmental fallout as much as other countries. This lets it produce the material at a much lower cost than its competitors.

Until recently, one company in the US still produced a small amount of this material. Then, after a spat with a neighboring country, China flooded the market with supply. This oversupply drove the last US company out of business.

According to a US Congressional report:

[China] flooded the market by more than tripling the previous world supply of the materials. During this time, [Chinese firms] were largely unprofitable but were allowed to survive through direct and indirect support by the Chinese government.

This backing enabled [China’s industry] to continue to mine and export these materials at prices far below the actual costs of production…

Mines in the United States and elsewhere, unable to remain profitable against cheap Chinese exports, went out of business.

This is how China undercut everyone else and came to dominate the industry. Today, China produces around 90% of global supplies of this material.

In short, no one poses a serious threat to China’s monopoly. China can simply hold prices lower for longer than any competitor can stay solvent.

This unchallenged monopoly could quickly become a huge problem for the US. But the US government won’t just sit on its hands…

The US-China Trade War Is Heating Up

Regular readers know I think a full-blown trade war between the US and China is imminent. And we’ve already heard the opening shot.

Let me explain…

Early on in his presidency, Donald Trump indicated that he wouldn’t handle China like the previous US presidents.

In January 2017, he became the first president in 40 years to speak with the leader of Taiwan, an island off the coast of China that Beijing considers a renegade province.

Even during the campaign, Trump famously threatened a 45% tariff on Chinese goods entering the US.

He also said China was sucking “the blood out of the United States” and “we can’t continue to allow China to rape our country, and that’s what they’re doing.”
