Bix Weir – Good Guys vs. Bad Guys – Update

3

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:
Our good friend Bix Weir joined us today for an intriguing interview. Are cryptocurrencies the final battlefield between the Good Guys (White Hats) and the Bad Guys (Black Hats). Bix believes that the blockchain is the key to restoring honesty and integrity to the financial system and human affairs. Bix informed us that Jamaica is setting up a blockchain based stock trading system that if successful may be adopted around the world. He believes that the current pullback in Crypto’s is temporary, but is extremely excited about the Litecoin’s prospects. It’s 4 times faster than Bitcoin! Let’s see if cryptocurrencies and the blockchain have the ability to lift man up from his current dismal state of existence.

Doug Casey on the Coming Comfortable Dystopia, Part 2

0

by Doug Casey, International Man:

Editor’s Note: On Wednesday, Doug Casey and Casey Daily Dispatch editor Justin Spittler discussed why China’s getting ready to roll out a “social credit system”—and why the U.S. could do something similar. In the second part of their conversation, Doug shares more thoughts on this disturbing trend…

Justin: I imagine that corporate America will also be in favor of a social credit system. After all, it sounds like the ultimate marriage between big business and big government.

Doug: Absolutely. It relates to our recent conversation about Facebook and the other tech giants. The government loves these companies, and they’re hooked up with the government. The Deep State really exists.

by Frank Camp, Daily Wire:

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll of 900 registered voters (645 of whom are likely voters) conducted between October 14-17 found President Trump’s approval rating at 47% — the highest ever for this particular poll.

Since the beginning of the year, the president’s approval rating has fluctuated, jumping between 39% and 46%, only reaching 47% this month. His disapproval rating has also fluctuated, but dropped significantly in recent months, landing at a low of 49% in this most recent survey.

The Real Reason The Propagandists Have Been Promoting Russia Hysteria

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

Former MSNBC host Krystal Ball slammed her ex-employer’s relentless promotion of the Russiagate conspiracy theory following the embarrassing spectacle of Robert Mueller’s hearing before the House Judiciary and Intelligence Committees on Wednesday.

“After watching seven hours of a spectacle that felt much more cruel than enlightening, I cannot avoid pondering a question which honestly gives me no joy to ponder: just how much damage has MSNBC in particular done to the left?” The Hill‘s Rising star began, before excoriating her former employer’s “fevered speculations” about an “Infowars conspiracy theory” and the way it hosted people like Jonathan “maybe Trump has been a Russian asset since the 1980s” Chait and “conspiracy gadfly Louise Mensch” in search of ratings bumps.

SELCO: The 5 Things That Will Surprise You Most When the SHTF

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

This is an excerpt from Selco’s book, The Dark Secrets of SHTF Survival. This weekend, you can get all 5 of Selco’s books in PDF for only $25.  CLICK HERE.

I recently ran one of my newest courses, called “A Mile in My Shoes.” This is where I take a small group of students to the city where I survived the war and take them around and physically show them the realities of what was faced. A lot of lessons are learned during the course and most importantly (and what I hoped for) students come far closer to realizing the ‘reality’ of a true SHTF situation.

I thought I would share with you the ‘top 5’ surprises that the students encountered, meaning things they had not thought about or realized before the course but had to accept and come to terms with during…

City Replaced Corrupt Cops With Mimes Who Lowered Traffic Fatalities Far Better Than Tickets

by John Vibes, Activist Post:

Despite the fact that our species has had many years to perfect how we travel in cars, fatality rates continue to rise and roads are just as dangerous as ever.

Instead of trying something different, most governments throughout the world continue to double-down on their outdated and ineffective strategies, mostly involving extortion, which has done nothing to improve road safety.

There are some areas where radical solutions have been attempted, and in many cases, these different strategies have had extremely impressive results.

The Fact That Americans Need To Be Deceived Into War Proves Their Underlying Goodness

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

Last night Fox’s Tucker Carlson praised Trump’s decision not to go forward with a planned attack against Iran which the president claims would have killed approximately 150 people in response to a downed drone, which if true would have been a profoundly barbaric response to a broken toy plane and would have led to retaliations from Iran, followed by a chain of military actions which could have escalated God knows how far.

The New French Revolution?

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

France is now preparing to use chemical weapons against its own citizens around Paris to counter-attack the Yellow Vest rioters as their anti-Macron protests continue after 5 weeks. This chemical is a debilitating powder that can be spread over an entire area of the size of six football fields in ten seconds. So far, the police have arrest well over 150 people and they have used both tear gas and water cannons. President Emmanuel Macron’s administration is showing its increasing desperation to maintain power. The use of such chemical weapons could backfire dramatically.
