The End of France as We Know It?

by Tom Luongo, Tom Luongo:

When an event grabs headlines like the protests in France have I temper my reactions to it.  I didn’t give the Yellow Vest protests much thought at first wanting to see where they would lead.

Protests like this and even bigger ones like Catalonian independence are invariably betrayed by the European political establishment.  They become an excuse to move towards tighter control — more cops, more surveillance, crackdowns on free speech, etc.

So, sometimes it’s hard to separate the manufactured reality show from the spontaneous uprising of human frustration.

MEET THE BOARD OF THE FUSION GPS-LINKED GROUP INVESTIGATING TRUMP

by Chuck Ross, The Daily Caller:

  • A mysterious nonprofit group backed in part by George Soros and linked to Fusion GPS has investigated President Donald Trump and possible Russian interference.
  • The Democracy Integrity Project has largely remained a mystery, but The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned new details about the group’s board of directors.
  • One board member is an attorney who has worked closely with Fusion GPS in the past. The lawyer, Adam Kaufmann, has worked for Derwick Associates, a Venezuelan power company accused of bribery and money laundering.

Days after Donald Trump’s inauguration, a nonprofit organization opened up shop in Washington, D.C., to continue a private investigation into the president’s possible ties to Russia.

Second Dire Government Warning To Prepare Now For ‘Catastrophic Power Outage’ That Could Last Months, Is Released

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Two separate reports, one from the U.S. military and another posted to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) website this week, have been issued on the heels of one another, warning of potential attacks that would affect the power grid.

In late November the U.S. military issued a report titled “Electromagnetic Defense Task Force,” which sought to warn the nation that  “an electromagnetic spectrum attack may be a threat to the United States, democracy, and the world order,” and supported congressional testimony that an effective EMP attack, could kill 90 percent of “all Americans” within one year. (ANP referenced and embedded that report in previous articles here and here)

In that report the military warned of nuclear reactor meltdowns, displaced Americans, civil unrest that would start in “hours,” failures may include long-term loss of electrical power (due to loss of emergency generators), sewage, fresh water, banking, landlines, cellular service, vehicles,” and that it could take up to “18 months or more are required to replace key elements of the electric grid that would be damaged or knocked out.”

Danielle Park – Whatever Happened to Ethics?

0

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

Danielle Park recalls when sound business and ethics used to go hand-in-hand. Now they’re distant cousins under the best of circumstances. Have we gone too far down the rabbit hole to ever return? Or perhaps it’s just part of a cycle. Speaking of cycles, we discuss electric vehicles and why they’re making so little progress in the global auto marketplace. Are the current crop of EV’s that are about to be released, designed to fail? Perhaps, but the future seems clear, some day EV’s will dominate.

CHUTZPAH: CIA/Mossad Instigate Chemical Attack in Syria, Accuse Syria of Doing It

from Russia Insider:

Washington’s doublethink on Syria’s civil war and chemical weapons.

While it received almost no coverage in the Western media, the United States Department of State has made its final determination on the November 24, 2018 chemical attack in northwestern Aleppo.

In case you have forgotten, on November 24, 2018, as reported on Sputniknews, the Russian military stated that “terrorist groups” had fired 120 mm mortars at neighbourhoods on the north-west side of Aleppo. The mortars were fired from a location in the demilitarized buffer zone between rebel and government forces. According to Sputnik, the 120 millimetre shells appear to have been filled with chlorine and resulted in the hospitalization of 94 civilians including women and children. This resulted in actions by Russian forces which claimed to eliminate the rebels responsible for the attack.

French Government Faces No Confidence Vote Amid Yellow Vest Protests

from Sputnik News:

Several French lawmakers tabled a motion of no confidence, with a vote to be held on Thursday in the wake of President Emmanuel Macron’s handling of the “gilets jaunes” (“yellow vests”) crisis.

André Chassaigne, of the French Communist Party; Olivier Faure, from the Socialist Party; and Jean-Luc Mélenchon, founder of France Unbowed (La France Insoumise) movement, along with 59 members of the National Assembly — the French parliamentary body — put out a joint statement while filing a motion of no confidence against Macron’s government, the AFP reported.

The Trade War Distraction: Huawei And Linchpin Theory

by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:

Since the beginning of this year, I have been warning that trade tariffs initiated by Donald Trump would develop into a full-blown trade war with China, and perhaps other nations, and that the timing of this trade war is rather suspicious. Suspicious how? Almost every instance of further escalation was made by Trump around the exact time that the Federal Reserve was also making a large cut to its balance sheet or raising interest rates. Instead of focusing on the fact that extreme volatility has returned to markets because central banks are pulling the plug on life support, the mainstream media is holding up the trade war as the ultimate culprit behind the accelerating crash.

Name One Government Agency that Doesn’t Do the Exact Opposite of its Purpose

from The Daily Bell:

A DEA agent is accused of facilitating drug trafficking in the regions he oversaw in Florida and Arkansas. He allegedly traded inside information to drug runners in exchange for cash.

Drugs are illegal. But you can still run drugs with the right person being paid off. And you can do it for very little money–this agent got around $62,000 from one dealer for his role.

That is enough money to easily corrupt an individual, but a small price to pay compared to how much a drug dealer can make. Especially when you have the DEA looking the other way and giving you a heads up before raids.

U.S. Navy to release genetically engineered organisms into the ocean, unleashing mass genetic pollution with devastating consequences

by Tracey Watson, Intellihub:

No longer content to tinker with the genetic design of crops and humans, scientists – at the behest of the U.S. Military – are now turning their attention to the world’s oceans. As reported by Defense One, the Pentagon is looking at various ways in which to genetically engineer marine microorganisms into living surveillance equipment capable of detecting enemy submarines, divers and other suspicious underwater traffic.
