FEC Shoots Down Plan to Target Drudge, Infowars

Officials stop Dem’s censorship program
by Kit Daniels, Infowars:

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has shut down a proposal by Democrat Commissioner Ellen Weintraub to target the Drudge Report, Infowars, Breitbart and others, stating it cannot “burden the free speech rights of American citizens.”

FEC officials opposed to her plan said it was “premature and counterproductive” because the whole “Russian collusion” narrative lacked concrete facts.

“At this time we do not know all of the facts and cannot support proposals that would burden the free speech rights of American citizens based on incomplete information about foreign activities in the 2016 election,” the FEC said in a statement.

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:
The plot thickens, as the saying goes. As the “Trump-Russia collusion” story heats up, a new piece to the story emerges, with a little-known hacker who goes by the name “Johnnie Walker,” stealing the private emails of a top State Department expert on Russia.

According to Newsweek:

A hacker claimed Tuesday to be in possession of emails taken from a top State Department official who focuses on “secret” intelligence work by the diplomatic agency toward Russia, and some of the emails included exchanges between the official and Central Intelligence Agency officers, Foreign Policy reported Friday.

How to Build a Creative Renaissance – Decentralize or Die (Part 4)

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:
Man cannot do without beauty, and this is what our era pretends to want to disregard. It steels itself to attain the absolute and authority; it wants to transfigure the world before having exhausted it, to set it to rights before having understood it. Whatever it may say, our era is deserting this world.

– Albert Camus

The first three parts of this series largely focused on how decentralization is necessary in the political realm and should be applied more aggressively to governing structures. I believe moving to such a model is no longer just a quaint option, but absolutely required if we want to expand human liberty and build more voluntary, ethical and sane communities. That being said, decentralization can and should be applied to as many aspects of life as possible.

Global Currency Reserve at Risk – Jim Willie

by Jim Willie, Gold Seek:
Within the US borders, the population remains largely ignorant of the true significance of the global currency reserve concept. It is of paramount importance, yet almost never discussed in the financial press. The public within the United States simply assumes the country operates with the USDollar as its currency, with near blindness to its global role in trade and banking. The end of an era is coming, as the change will be powerful in its effect. The shock wave could hit this year in some form, in a manner to highlight its importance.

by Andy Hoffman, Miles Franklin:
It’s Friday morning, on what could be a key inflectionary day in monetary history. Which is quite the extraordinary statement, when considering that mere minutes ago, I was, for once, having trouble formulating the day’s principal message. That said, when I looked through my notes – of the past 24 hours’ articles; and comments I jotted down about various topics; two charts caught my eye – which subsequently, catalyzed the revelation of why rates will never be “allowed” to rise. That is, until the bond vigilantes inevitably arrive to overwhelm government “monetizers”; in the same manner that soaring physical gold and silver demand will inevitably – and likely, simultaneously, overwhelm the naked paper shorters.

First, a chart depicting the U.S government’s record monthly outlay in June – of a whopping $429 billion, yielding a $90 billion monthly deficit. Which, I might add, was attributed to “higher subsidy costs for student loans; and to a lesser extent, housing guarantees.”

3 Examples That Show How Common Core Is Destroying Math Education In America

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Whenever you let federal bureaucrats get their hands on anything they are probably going to ruin it. During the Obama administration, the Department of Education spearheaded a transformation of American education that was absolutely breathtaking. Over a period of about five years, Common Core standards were implemented in almost every state in the entire nation. Unfortunately, this has resulted in a huge step backward for public education in this country. Common Core has been called “state-sponsored child abuse”, and it is a big reason why U.S. students are scoring so poorly on standardized tests compared to much of the rest of the world.
