The Way Forward

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

This week, LaRouche PAC is beginning to organize a nationwide drive to change the terms of the present national political debate based on the following statement: The Way Forward. If the anarchy and preening for position by Democrats and ideologically blinded Republicans in the Congress continues, in its present form, we will have proven ourselves incapable of government across the partisan divides which feed the political parties’ money machines. This is not the fault of President Trump. But he has no one supporting him on the Hill who thinks and acts on the level of our Founders. That must change. We will be on the Hill, but we’re also asking you, the citizens who now must act, to call your Congressman or Senator and demand that “The Way Forward” form the basis of a new and urgent national debate and legislation, putting principle above parties.

‘THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP’ ON WALLS OF JERUSALEM ON EVE OF EMBASSY MOVE

from InfoWars:

May 14 is also the 70th anniversary of the date that U.S. President Harry S. Truman recognized Israel

“Thank You President Trump.” That was the message projected onto the ancient walls of Jerusalem, together with the American and Israeli flags, on the eve of the formal transfer of the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem on Sunday evening.

Inside those walls — most recently rebuilt by the Ottoman sultan Suleiman I in the 16th century — tens of thousands of young Israelis danced and sang at the Western Wall plaza in honor of Yom Yerushalayim (“Jerusalem Day”), the 51st anniversary of the reunification of the city during the Six Day War of 1967.

Will Trump Destroy the World for His Statue?

by Phil Butler, New Eastern Outlook:

If the American president’s most recent moves have you puzzled again, take heart – the whole world is with you. The man evil billionaire George Soros now says is “perfectly willing to destroy the world in order to maintain his narcissism,” seems fully capable of doing just that.

Now we know we’ve entered the Twilight Zone of geopolitics, when the world’s evilest genius starts pointing fingers. But wait! Shortly after a smidgeon of truth exited Soros’ shriveled mouth Trump went haywire on the way back from the G7 Summit in Canada. New York Times reporters Peter Baker and Michael D. Shearframed Trump’s latest head wobbling tirade; Trump’s Blasts Upend G-7, Alienating Oldest Allies. The story goes something like this.

Playing for All the Marbles

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

Global Plunge Protection Teams must be ordering take-out food; every night is a long one now.

The current stocks/bonds game is for all the marbles, by which I mean the status quo now depends on valuations and interest rates remaining near their current levels for the system to function.

If interest rates soar and/or stocks plummet, the game is over: pension funds collapse, tax revenues drop, debt based on high asset valuations defaults, employment craters and the much-lauded “wealth effect” reverses into a “negative wealth effect” (i.e. everyone looking at their IRA or 401K statement feels poorer every month).

Let’s scan a few relevant charts to understand why this game is for all the marbles. Given the systemic fragility of the global economy, a crash in one asset class or a rise in interest rates trigger defaults, sell-offs, etc. that forcibly revalue other assets.

GOLD RISES $4.20/SILVER UP ANOTHER 17 CENTS/GLD LOSES ANOTHER 1.77 TONNES DESPITE GOLD’S GAIN!!

CHINESE SMALL CAPS CRASH LAST NIGHT/ITALY CANNOT HANDLE ANY MORE MIGRANTS: GIVES THE EU AN ULTIMATUM!/TURKEY BOMBS USA ALLY: THE SYRIAN KURDS IN SYRIA

ISRAEL IS AGAINST THE CEASEFIRE BETWEEN USA FORCES AND RUSSIAN FORCES!/USA HAS A $250 BILLION IN 2017 AND 2018 BUDGET WITH HUGE RAMIFICATIONS!/ PAUL BRODSKY OUTLINES TWO HUGE RED FLAGS!

In silver, the total open interest ROSE BY A TINY 233 contract(s) UP to 206,591 DESPITE THE GOOD RISE IN PRICE THAT SILVER TOOK WITH FRIDAY’S TRADING (UP 21 CENT(S). EVEN WITH THE DATA ON FRIDAY (COT SHOWING SPECS GOING NET SHORT AND COMMERCIALS NET LONG FOR THE PAST 10 DAYS ENDING LAST TUESDAY) , THE ONLY EXPLANATION THAT I CAN THINK OF IS SOMETHING HAS SCARED OUR BANKERS TO NO END AND THEY STARTED TO COVER THEIR SHORTFALL IN EARNEST ALONG WITH OUR BANKER SHORTS. HOWEVER THE BANKERS ARE HAVING AN AWFUL TIME TRYING TO SHAKE THE SILVER LEAVES FROM THE SILVER TREE.

In ounces, the OI is still represented by just OVER 1 BILLION oz i.e. 1.034 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 148{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

Delingpole: Germany Surrenders to Trump, Waters Down G20 Climate Plan #Winning

by James Delingpole, Breitbart:
Germany has ‘massively weakened’ its climate action plan for next week’s G20 summit in Hamburg in order to appease Donald Trump.
According to a shocked report in the green, EU-linked propaganda outlet Climate Change News this represents a disastrous cultural surrender which

“….shows the degree to which the German presidency has bent to the will of the Trump White House.”

Endless War Has Been Normalized And Everyone Is Crazy

by Caitlin Johnstone, Medium:

Since I last wrote about the bipartisan shrieking, hysterical reaction to Trump’s planned military withdrawal from Syria the other day, it hasn’t gotten better, it’s gotten worse. I’m having a hard time even picking out individual bits of the collective freakout from the political/media class to point at, because doing so would diminish the frenetic white noise of the paranoid, conspiratorial, fearmongering establishment reaction to the possibility of a few thousands troops being pulled back from a territory they were illegally occupying.

BATTLESTATIONS! BATTLESTATIONS! #NewQ #QAnon #GreatAwakening

from Neon Revolt:

Friendly reminder before we begin to subscribe to me on Gab. I have an absolute ton of extra content and commentary on there that I can’t quite fit elsewhere, but which I would love to get in front of your eyeballs. Plus, it’s a lot of fun! Gab is growing every day, and the comments are always rowdy, and the speech is always free.

World Hunger Increases for the Third Year in a Row

by Luis Miranda, The Sleuth Journal:

In 2017, 821 million people did not consume the minimum amount of calories for their daily activity.

The number of people in a situation of famine increased with respect to 2016 by at least 15 million.

The data collected by the UN Food and Nutrition in the World report confirm that the increase is not an isolated situation, because it is the third year in which the number of people suffering from famine increases.
