The Irrelevant UN

by Eric Zuesse, Strategic Culture:

The UN that exists today is not the one that had been intended. Today’s UN is just an international PR forum for nations. Part of that PR is the organization’s numerous ‘humanitarian’ operations, which concern what’s happening to suffering groups within nations, more than they actually concern the international relations between nations — which international relations were supposed to have been the UN’s focus and area of concern and authority. So, this UN — the one that exists — is basically a fill-in for the one that was intended.

President Trump is Right – Former Obama DAG Sally Yates Was Either Lying or Incompetent Based on Her Testimony Before the US Senate

by Joe Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Sally Yates testified before the Senate on Wednesday about her actions involved in Obamagate. She was not impressive and showed that she either was lying or incompetent or perhaps both.

Right out of the gate, Yates claimed former Trump volunteer George Papadopoulos was connected to Russia. From all the evidence uncovered to date, there is absolutely no evidence this is true:

from The Conservative Treehouse:

Live your best life. The totalitarian dictators rely on fear as a weapon.  Do not empower their fiats with compliance.  Enough is enough, this is all about control…

from True Pundit:

Jeffery Epstein’s longtime mentor and business partner spilled the beans on the Thomas Paine Podcast, detailing how Epstein a co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell banked untold millions of dollars. And it wasn’t from trading on Wall Street. Listen Above.

Steven Hoffenberg reveals how Epstein made his money. The real story on how he made his money. Not the boring media narrative. And Hoffenberg points the finger at the duo’s unnamed co-conspirator who allowed the two to operate for decades with a license to steal, traffic young girls, sell illegal arms, and blackmail the rich and famous — the Feds.

by Kristina Wong, Breitbart:

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) suggested Thursday during an exclusive interview with SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily that Google’s suppression of political news critical of Joe Biden and Democrats on its search engine is election interference.

Asked by host Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow if he believed Google’s suppression amounted to “election interference,” Cotton responded:

from Humans Are Free:

As mass murder Dr. Anthony Fauci continues to appear in the corporate media to attack the use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), which thousands of doctors have now said can completely cure COVID, more doctors are coming forward to expose his lies.

by Brian Shilhavy

Fauci publicly attacked a recent positive study about HCQ published by the Henry Ford Health System, prompting two of the leading doctors of the study, doctors Adnan Munkarah and Steven Kalkanis, to publish an “Open Letter” refuting the lies of the mass murderer, Anthony Fauci.

Wall Street Banks that Got the Biggest Fed Bailouts Have Been Dogs to Shareholders Over the Past 15 Years

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

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell wants Americans to believe that the mega banks on Wall Street that hold trillions of dollars in federally-insured deposits, while peddling everything from high-risk derivatives to junk bonds to precious metals, “are a source of strength” during this economic downturn. The big problem for the Fed is the above two charts.

The chart data comes from BigCharts at MarketWatch, owned by Dow Jones & Company. According to the first chart, Citigroup has lost 90 percent of its share value since January 3, 2005. (It dressed up its share price in 2011, doing a 10-for-1 reverse stock split, meaning shareholders who had previously owned 100 shares, now owned just 10 shares at a higher price.)

Food Prices Rise To Dangerous Levels As “A Second Wave Of Layoffs” Hits The U.S. Economy

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

You may have noticed that food prices have started to go up very aggressively.  I repeatedly warned my readers that this is precisely what would happen, and more price increases are on the way.  Fear of COVID-19 has sparked a tremendous amount of extra demand as Americans have feverishly stocked up their pantries, and at the same time the virus has made it very difficult for the major food companies to keep up.  Over the past several months we have seen a large number of food production facilities close down temporarily, food supply chains have been thrown into a state of chaos, and grocery stores have found it increasingly difficult to keep their shelves full.  Many years ago I remember sitting in an Econ 101 class as a very young college student, and one of the things that I learned was that prices are going to rise when supply goes down and demand goes up.  So it was inevitable that grocery store prices would become more painful, and the latest numbers that have been released by the BEA are definitely quite alarming

3 OTHER MASSIVE EXPLOSIONS THAT LEFT US WONDERING WHEN TACTICAL NUKES WILL MAKE THEIR DEBUT

from The Waking Times:

The world has been watching footage of the massive explosion in Beirut’s main city port yesterday, causing widespread speculation as to whether or not this was a covert military operation employing some new generation of tactical small-yield nuclear weapons.

So far, all indications seem to be that this blast was the result of fatal mishandling of hazardous materials, and no faction has stepped up to take responsibility for this as an attack.

The videos are down right terrifying.

Joe Biden Is Absolutely the Vehicle for the Communist Takeover of the Democrat Party

by Stecey Lennox, PJ Media:

Democrat nominee Joe Biden had his wife, Jill, interview with Dana Perino. One has to wonder if she ended up filling in because Joe has so many weird interview moments. While Jill vehemently denied Biden has any cognitive issues, that wasn’t even the funniest part of the interview.

Biden’s wife insisted the candidate is a moderate. She actually said he’s not right or left, just a moderate:

WE HAVEN’T SEEN ANYTHING YET: The Coming Tiny Silver Market Explosion

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:

Even though the silver price has surged over the past two months, we haven’t seen anything yet.  Step aside, Tesla.  Watch what happens when investors begin to understand the true meaning of “STORE OF VALUE.”  I can assure you; Tesla is not a store of value but rather a perfect example of the 2000 TECH-BUBBLE 2.0.

Unfortunately, the glitz, glamor, and allure of Technology will only last as long as the world is capable of supplying lots of cheap and available oil.  Technology doesn’t really solve problems; it just consumes one hell of a lot more energy with the illusion of a FIX.  Tesla isn’t solving our problem with fossil fuel addiction.  Without the burning of one hell of a lot of oil, natural gas, and coal, Elon Musk wouldn’t be able to roll just one of his Model 3 Electric vehicles off the assembly line.  This is the BAD JOKE that most “Renewable Energy Aficionados” would like you to ignore.
