The View from the Trenches of the Alternative Media

0

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

What’s scarce in a world awash in free content and nearly infinite entertainment content?

After 3,701 posts (from May 2005 to the present), here are my observations of the Alternative Media from the muddy trenches.

It’s increasingly difficult to make a living creating content outside the corporate matrix. The share of advert revenues paid to content creators / publishers has declined precipitously, shadow banning has narrowed search and social media exposure and the expansion of free content and competing subscription-based publishing has made subscription services an increasingly tough sell.

The Best Argument Against Minimum Wage Laws: You Don’t Own Other People

by Tom Mullen, DC Clothesline:

With Democrats about to take control of the House, it is likely we will see an increase in the federal minimum wage pass the lower chamber, even if it has no chance of becoming a law. We will just as surely hear opponents making completely sound economic arguments against minimum wage laws.

Minimum wage laws cause unemployment, these opponents say, because they price those workers whose skills don’t justify the minimum wage out of the market completely. If a worker only has the skills to produce $14/hour worth of benefits to an employer, the employer is better off not employing that person rather than losing $1 dollar/hour doing so, if the minimum wage is $15/hour. And regardless of where the minimum wage is presently, any increase in the price of labor will result in less demand for labor, all other things being equal.

The Offended Majority

0

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

For too many decades the American people, by which I mean the people born and raised in the US in neighborhoods where there were family and neighbors who shared a culture, language, values, and history, have sat tolerantly while a tiny percentage of the population took away their culture by making it offensive to the tiny minority for Americans to live in their own culture.

For example, as John Whitehead of the Rutherford institute makes clear in his statement below, Americans are no longer allowed to practice Christmas outside their own homes. Homosexuals might be out of the closet, but the vast majority of Americans have been shoved into the closet.

Rush: Angry French Rioters Shout ‘we want Trump’

by Greg Holt, DC Clothesline:

Emmanuel Macron, France’s new president apparently thought the masses would love him for his vehement support of climate change. Macron has subsequently gotten the message that his economic policies in support of battling the non-existent world game changer popularly called climate change – was a huge and costly mistake.

The rioting in France according to CNBC is the worst this country has seen since 1968. In what has been dubbed the “yellow vest” riots – rioters have blocked access to fuel depots, shopping malls, factories, and roads.

If all this wasn’t bad enough, BBC News is reporting that the yellow vest rioters have set buildings on fire, as well as setting cars on fire.

from BBC:

A satanic group has added its own statue to a series of displays in the government building of the US state of Illinois to mark the festive season.

Placed between a Christmas tree and a menorah, the four-foot sculpture depicts a snake coiled around an outstretched arm holding an apple.

It’s the first display sponsored by the Chicago chapter of the Temple of Satan.

The state government said the temple had the same right as other religious groups to have a display.

10 Ways President Trump Can ‘Red Pill The Masses’ In America And Why It’s More Important Now Than Ever To Prepare For The Inevitable: ‘The End Of Normalcy Is Here’

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

On November 30th we published this story on ANP within which we reported we’d soon be putting out a story outlining a number of different ways that President Trump could ‘red pill‘ the masses and awaken tens of millions to ‘reality‘ and ‘deep state tyranny and crimes‘ against the American people so here we are today.

With the end of what many of us have long considered ‘normalcy‘ now here, this story will take a look at 10 different topics (some with numerous subtopics) that outline and detail for us some of the ways that the American people have been lied to over the years by the ‘deep state‘ and mainstream media and while the msm will surely call a story like this ‘fake news‘, those who’ve long been paying attention know that much of what is going on behind the scenes has long been covered up.

Empty Words Are Failing. A Timeline For What Comes Next

by John Rubino, Dollar Collapse:

A quick recap of the past couple of months:

Stocks plunge.

The politicians, bureaucrats and bankers who depend on artificially-elevated financial asset prices start to panic.

The Fed announces that maybe it won’t have to raise interest rates any more, and the president announces a temporary cease-fire in the trade war with China.

The markets bounce, leading some to conclude that the worst is over and it’s time to go back to buying the dip.
