Pavlov’s Dogs and the Lunatic Left

7

by Matt, SGT Report:
Mankind has discovered many things by accident. Penicillin, Microwave Ovens and Coca Cola for starters and so it goes with the story of Ivan Pavlov, a Russian scientist in the late 19th century. Pavlov was studying the salivation in dogs in response to being fed.

The intention was to monitor the salivation when he noticed that dogs would begin their salivation whenever he entered the room, whether he was bringing them food or not. It’s said that initially he thought this was something of a nuisance.

What Pavlov came to understand was that there were some things that a dog does not need to learn. This was ‘hard wired’ into the dog.

Trust your cognitive dissonance. Try to be aware you’re being manipulated or at least someone may be trying. — Sharyl Attkisson to America

Sharyl Attkisson has always been a respected and well-regarded journalist, and her recent work is only building her reputation. After spending years holding Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama accountable to the American people, Attkisson left CBS to strike out on her own. Even though she faced tremendous pressure from the Obama administration (and may have even been spied on by the administration), Attkisson persevered.

Jackass’ Red Glare Upon The Petrodollar

by Turd Ferguson, TF Metals Report:
For your holiday listening pleasure, Jim Willie returns for a comprehensive discussion of the petrodollar and how current events around the Arabian Peninsula are a sign of great distress for this monetary scheme.

Again, what is the “petrodollar”. The idea was championed by Henry Kissinger in 1973 as a way to create ongoing demand for US dollars by maintaining the pricing of crude oil in dollars only. The effects of this were two-fold:

To create constant demand for dollars…dollars which were now completely unhinged from any gold backing…and this demand would soak up any excess supply of new currency being printed in the US for military and social purposes.
To force oil-exporting nations to keep their foreign currency reserves in dollars, thus creating an ongoing demand for US treasury bonds. This constant demand for bonds would help to keep interest rates…and thus the US debt service cost…unnaturally low.

Reserve Currency Issuer Plus Global Pariah = Historic Monetary Reset

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
The gold Cartel will eventually collapse – just like all Cartels before it, like the London Gold Pool in 1968, before gold surged from $35/oz to nearly $900/oz a decade later. However, in the meantime, we must continue to fight a monetary battle to the death – which mathematically, must be won by sound money; as, per the immortal theme of Gresham’s Law, good money always chases out bad. Not to mention, Economics 101; as, per last week’s “Precious Metals’ ultimate downside protection,” the mining industry has been so decimated by two decades of price suppression, supply is guaranteed to plunge indefinitely. This, as the terminal, malignant phase of history’s largest, most destructive fiat Ponzi scheme causes global Central bank printing presses to be turned up to “ludicrous speed” (Spaceballs reference).

Owning Gold Is the First Step to “Freedom Insurance”

by Nick Giambruno, Casey Research:
It’s predictable…

A government in need of cash will turn to destructive “solutions.”

Money printing, higher taxes, and more regulations often come first. Unfortunately, these are just the hors d’oeuvres before a 10-course meal.

As they become increasingly desperate, governments implement increasingly destructive policies. This might include capital controls, price controls, people controls, official currency devaluations, wealth confiscations, retirement account nationalizations, and more.

Assange Destroys Liberals and Conservatives, Shows How They’re the Same in Epic Tweet Storm

by Rachel Blevins, The Free Thought Project:
The false left vs. right paradigm has been used and abused in the United States for years, and yet in 2017, there is still a sense among Americans that there is actual difference between liberals and conservatives.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange called out the hypocrisy on Twitter by using one of the issues both Democrats and Republicans seem to agree on—the call for his assassination.

Assange began the Tweet storm over the weekend, with a Tweet that said “Hello snowflakes,” and then went on to note that he will focus on “some censorship double standards,” such as the “threats to kill” he has received on Twitter.
