The Value of Skills in Venezuela’s Barter Economy (and For Those Who Bug Out)

0

by J.G. Martinez D., The Organic Prepper:

You can’t overestimate the value of skills in a barter economy like the one in Venezuela. Those with skills survive, and those without are suffering terribly.

Plenty has been written about the economy since writing itself was invented. However, this basic aspect of our daily lives is not taken as seriously as it should be. The reasons, I could not explain them; however, at a young age, I took some interest, because I noticed very quickly how it affected my wellbeing and my environment.

The more employment in a city, the less crime, generally speaking. And you could start an independent side business, and make it thrive. This is not possible any longer in Venezuela, of course. The distortions (artificially generated by the government mafia) are too strong and have been there for too long. The only possible outcome is a full reset of everything: government, police, military, and economy.

Chinese Gov. makes $1 Billion Extracting Organs From Fully Conscious People-Chris Kitze and Dave Hodges

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

I have been privy to agreements between the United Nations and China with regard to the occupation of the United States. In short, the despicable Chinese government has been promised control and the right to harvest American mineral rights in our country in exchange for servicing much of the debt of the United States in a post sovereign America.

This arrangement should absolutely frighten every American, because under Chinese military imposed martial law, the Chinese will be harvesting much more that mineral resources. They will undoubtedly do to Americans what the Chinese have been doing to the Falun Gong. Namely, arresting them on trumped up charges. This is followed by the imposition of lengthy prison sentences so these poor people will not be missed when the Chinese government extracts their organs while the victims are fully conscious.

The United States Is The Only Remaining Colonial Power

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

The United States government has never allowed independent governments in Latin America. Every time people elect a government that represents them instead of US economic interests, Washington overthrows the elected government. Marine General Smedley Butler told us this as have many others. There is no doubt about it.

Currently Washington is trying to overthrow the governments of Venezuela and Nicaragua and has bought off the Ecuadorian government with oil purchases and the usual personal bribes. Evo Morales government in Bolivia is also targeted by Washington. The Obama regime succeeded in removing the reform governments in Honduras, Argentina, and Brazil.

BRICS Sets Agenda For Global Development — U.S. Must Join To Create a New World Order Based on Peace Through Development

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

The tremendous dynamic of the July 25-27 Johannesburg Summit of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa), and especially the BRICS-Africa Dialogue Forum at the same venue, have united most of the world around several key concepts: peace through development; BRICS-Plus as a core for a new South-South relationship, or “Global South;” the New Silk Road concept as the basis for “new driving forces for development,” nuclear power for all nations, with Russia taking the lead; and the urgent need for international cooperation in the development of Africa and Southwest Asia from centuries of colonial wars and exploitation.

The EU Backs Off its War on Cash. Here’s Why

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

People view paying in cash “as a fundamental freedom, which should not be disproportionately restricted.”

The European Commission, in its official war on cash, admitted that physical cash is perhaps not quite the source of all evil that many EU institutions, including the Commission itself, had made it out to be. And it has abandoned its war on cash.

In a report to the European Parliament and Council on the viability of EU-wide cash payment restrictions, the Commission made three crucial observations.

Italy is toughening up, wants zero tolerance policy for criminal asylum seekers

0

from Voice Of Europe:

Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini announced on Twitter that he is working on a zero tolerance policy for criminal migrants. 

“I am working on an administrative order (#decretosicurezza) which will make it possible to refuse asylum requests if the person seeking it has committed a crime, because nowadays the law, except in certain cases, permits that criminal foreigners stay in the country and receive “protection” at the expense of the Italian people. #zerotolerance”

MH370 Mystery Grows as Final Report Says Someone “Manipulated” Controls

from ZeroHedge:

A comprehensive final report made public by investigators on Monday has stirred fresh controversy as Malaysian authorities say they “cannot determine with any certainty” why Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 disappeared on March 8, 2014.

However one key irregular finding in the 495-page report is that the Boeing 777’s controls were most likely deliberately manipulated to take the plane off course, perhaps putting to rest theories of remote hijacking, which investigators behind the report also considered, noting only that “unlawful third party interference” could have possibly come into play related to the pilots’ decision to turn back.

Kok Soo Chon, head of the MH370 safety investigation team, told reporters“We cannot exclude that there was an unlawful interference by a third party,” in reference to the decision to divert the aircraft from the intended destination.

AN ODD THING ABOUT THOSE FIRES IN GREECE…

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

Remember those fires in California? You know, the ones that mysteriously appeared seemingly from nowhere, and burned down buildings and cars and rather strangely left nearby trees and shrubs …well… “unburned”? And that left property values in the tank and easy to pick up for pennies on the dollar? And which, incidentally, there are now reports of people suffering strange rashes, headaches, breathing problems and so on? And, oh yea, that the military was called in to deal with?

Yes, those fires…

An Open Message To President Donald Trump: It’s Time For Americans To FINALLY Get Some Truth About Barack Obama While ‘Slaying’ The ‘Deep State, MSM Dragon’ In One Fell Swoop

How much do we really know about the birth, upbringing, education, and early career of the politicians and Deep State operatives who rule over us? Of course, anyone can look up any of them on the web, and there will be a Wikipedia article and several others almost identical to it, telling us all about their heroic military service and their earning degrees from Hahvahd or Yale. But how much of this is true?

The prime example of this is, of course, Hussein Obama (or whatever its name is). We are told that the creature was born in Hawaii and its father, Barack Obama Sr., was a Kenyan national attending school in the US, and its mother was one Ann Dunham, from a family that had close connections to the banking industry and to various government agencies.

We are told that Hussein graduated from an exclusive high school in Hawaii and then earned college credits from Occidental and finally graduated from Columbia in 1983. It went on to Hahvahd Law School, where it was made President of the Hahvahd Law Review. Then it taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago before becoming a “community organizer” and then a politician.
