Trump Confounds the Pundits

by Eric Zuesse, Strategic Culture:

What will come out of this week’s summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un of North Korea remains to be seen, and one must hope for the best, but the bullets are already beginning to fly in the US media with The New York Times’ Nicholas Kristof declaring impulsively somewhat implausibly that Trump gave away the store by canceling military training exercises with South Korea and in legitimizing Jong-un’s rule by meeting with him without getting anything substantive in return.

Lost in the flood of news coming out of Singapore are Trump’s positive comments delivered at the earlier G-7 meeting in Canada, which may have opened the door to a possible meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and a return of Moscow to a reconfigured G-8. One hopes that China will soon also make it into the ultimate insiders’ club, which will have to be renamed G-9.

After Calling for Guns & Ammo Confiscation & Universal Gun Registration, the American Medical Association Should Think About Taking “American” Out of Their Name

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

This is why they should be honest about who they are and name themselves the Non-American Medical Association.

The American Medical Association (AMA) should seriously consider changing their names since they are about as anti-American as it comes in their new demands for gun confiscation measures, which include guns and ammunition confiscation, as well as universal gun registration.

The AMA, which should take no political position when it comes to guns, except to uphold the law which protects the God-given rights of law-abiding citizens, came out with a lengthy blog post not only calling for guns and ammunition confiscation, as well as universal gun registration but also proposals to ban the sale and possession of “all assault-type weapons, bump stocks and related devices, high-capacity magazines, and armor piercing bullets.”

Ecuadorian Official Implies Resolution To Assange’s Isolation May Be Imminent

by Elizabeth Vos, Disobedient Media:

Disobedient Media has consistently reported on the ongoing isolation of Wikileaks Editor-In-Chief Julian Assange within the Ecuadorian embassy in London. At the time of writing, 80 days have passed since Assange has been able to receive visitors, make phone calls, or communicate with the outside world, effectively transforming his asylum into solitary confinement, a recognized form of torture.

With his sixth anniversary since seeking asylum is the Embassy rapidly approaching, pressure has escalated on the Ecuadorian government to resolve the situation in a humane manner.

Recent statements made by an Ecuadorian official, as reported by The Courage Foundation, indicated that:

On the verge of a major turning point

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:

This morning I had the pleasure of being buried in a mountain of paperwork– the penalty for trying to do basically anything in the financial system these days.

It seems that everything, from sending a wire transfer to establishing a new account, comes with endless bureaucratic hoops to jump through as you’re forced to convince these people that you’re not a criminal money laundering terrorist.

In my case I was opening a new brokerage account. And as I went through the process, the questionnaire asked me about my risk tolerance.

Uruguay: First Nation To Legalize Marijuana Can’t Keep Up With Demand

by Aaron Kesel, Activist Post:

Five years after becoming the first nation to fully legalize marijuana, Uruguay is struggling to keep up with the demand by consumers of cannabis, High Times reported.

The South American country was the first nation to legalize marijuana in 2013. However, the legal sales of cannabis began just last year and is still struggling to keep users within the law by purchasing from pharmacies. The law allows registered consumers to purchase up to 40 grams (nearly 1.5 ounces) of cannabis at participating pharmacies every month. There is just one problem: only 14 of approximately 1,200 pharmacies in the country have registered to sell cannabis.

Traveling to Your Safe Haven During a WROL Event- Part 1

0

by E.P., Survival Blog:

This article will provide general guidance and a few specific examples on getting your team to your safe haven destination during a “Without Rule of Law” (WROL) event in one piece. I am an engineer and a lawyer by trade. In my 20+ years of prepping, I have come across few fellow preppers with a well thought out plan for traveling to their bug out location during a WROL event.

I have an important note at the outset. With respect to all of the comments below, it is assumed a WROL event has occurred. Most of us are well on their way to acquiring enough ammunition, firearms, food, water, medical supplies, et cetera for facing a WROL event. On the other hand, preparing the group for moving to the safe location seems to be one of the last issues addressed.
