What Is the NFL Telling Us About the Economy?

by Peter Schiff, Schiff Gold:

What is the NFL telling us about the economy?

The conventional wisdom seems to be that the economy will quickly recover once governments open things up again. But recent moves by the National Football League indicate its leadership isn’t so confident.

On Wednesday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced deep cost-cutting moves for the league, including employee furloughs and pay cuts.

“It is clear that the economic effects will be deeper and longer-lasting than anyone anticipated and that their duration remains uncertain. The downturn has affected all of us, as well as our fans, our business partners, and our clubs,” Goodell wrote in the memo. “We hope that business conditions will improve and permit salaries to be returned to their current levels, although we do not know when that will be possible,” he added.

For most of the ninety years since James Truslow Adams coined the term American Dream, most Americans still believed the fairy tale of the American Dream, that no matter how humble your beginnings, everyone had a fair chance to become a success in America, based upon your individual talent, intelligence, work ethic and a society that rewarded those who exceled. Sadly, that dream is no longer achievable for most Americans. Our society has devolved into an oligarchy since The Epic of America was published in 1931, where a powerful few rule over a willfully ignorant many through propaganda, mistruth, fear, and an iron fist.

Fusion GPS Founder Had Contact With State Department Official During 2016 Campaign

from True Pundit:

  • Emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show that Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson was in contact with a State Department official on the day before the publication of a news article based on information from Christopher Steele
  • The September 2016 email shows Simpson was desperate to make contact with Jonathan Winer, a longtime associate of then-Sec. of State John Kerry
  • Winer has been confirmed as a source for an article published the following day. That article, written by journalist Michael Isikoff, was the first to publicize Steele’s claims about Trump campaign adviser Carter Page

Greatest Violations of Nuremberg Code in History – Catherine Austin Fitts

by Greg Hunter, USA Watchdog:

Investment advisor and former Assistant Secretary of Housing Catherine Austin Fitts contends CV19 and the vaccines to cure it are more about control than depopulation.  Fitts explains, “I think the bankers are trying to chip us.  Moderna describes their injection, gene therapy as an ‘operating system.’  I agree with them.  I think they are trying to download an operating system into our bodies.  I don’t think it was an accident . . . the man President Trump appointed as head of ‘Operation Warp Speed’ was an expert at Brain-Machine interface. . . . Just like Bill Gates downloaded an operating system into your computer and made you update it regularly because of the threat of another virus, I think they are trying to play the same game with human bodies.  It’s hard for people to fathom if they have not been following the advancements in biotech and to fathom how much money the bankers can make if they can achieve this.  We just saw the Chairman of the Federal Reserve talking about the economy was getting better because the vaccination rate was going up.  I think that’s code for the bank stocks are going up because we are downloading operating systems in more and more people, and our stock reflects that.  We get a pop on our stock for every person we can remotely control with our operating system. . . . If you look at the deaths and adverse events, and the failure to provide true informed consent, we are talking about the greatest violations of the Nuremberg Code in history—now.”

How Does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Explain Communism’s 100 Million Dead?


by James Lewis, American Thinker:

Well, the new sex object for liberals – who hate the very idea of sex objects –  is a cute young lady named Ocasio-Cortez, who is famed in legend and song for her extreme ignorance of the U.S. Constitution.

But whaddayawant for a sex object?  The Federalist Society?

Ms. O-C is now stealing headlines from Hillary and Lizard, I mean Liz Warren, who are no longer heap big wampum in the Big Money fields of the left.  How quickly they fall.

More Than Any Other Country Russia Is Determined Never to Have a Repeat of WWI


by Nikolas K. Gvosdev, Russia Insider:

And of everything that followed

  • “The team today feels that after a century marked by wars and catastrophes, pursuing utopian and unattainable revolutionary dreams, Russia is back on the right path—the path Stolypin charted when he declared, ‘You want great upheavals; we want a great Russia.'”

On November 11, the world will acknowledge the 100 th anniversary of the armistice that ended the carnage that was the First World War. That date, however, doesn’t resonate in Russia. A far more significant moment on the calendar that just passed—the anniversary of the Bolshevik seizure of power—was similarly marginalized last year when the centennial of the October Revolution was largely ignored by the Russian government and Russian society as a whole. Current Russia sees little to celebrate or reminisce about the events of a century ago. 

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman’s Ouster: The Untold Story

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

There’s something unsettling about the top law enforcement officer in the United States telling a brazen lie to the American people late on a Friday night when most folks have called it quits for the week on the news. Shortly after 9 p.m. last Friday evening, the U.S. Attorney General, William Barr, released a statement indicating that the top federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman, was “stepping down.” In his place, Barr said this: “I am pleased to announce that President Trump intends to nominate Jay Clayton, currently the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, to serve as the next United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York.”

from Neon Revolt:

First thing’s first – Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! (I started writing this on Father’s day, okay? The Qdrops didn’t stop!) Your job is more important than you could possibly know! Your families, and as a result the nation, prospers because of your strength and dedication!

(And no, single moms, you don’t get to steal their thunder. You already had your day. KEK).

Second thing: MAJOR CORRECTION, in case you missed the update to the last article.


by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

Remember those missing trillions? The story, as regular readers here know, was first uncovered by former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Catherine Austin Fitts. The Dr. Mark Scidmore did some research and confirmed the existence of the missing money and Forbes magazine ran an article on the story. The problem, though, is that no one really knows for certain where the trillions went missing to.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Reveals Her Plan to Overthrow the Supreme Court


by Tyler O’Neil, PJ Media:

On Saturday, Democratic Socialist starlet Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for the abolition of the Electoral College. On Thursday, she revealed her plan to undermine the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s not very original…

At a screening for Michael Moore’s new film “Fahrenheit 11/9,” a member of the audience asked Ocasio-Cortez what she would do if the Supreme Court confirmed all of Democrats’ fears.

“If, in a few months from now, the Supreme Court looks like … a court that would overturn Roe [v. Wade] and make the president above the rule of law, what is to be done?” the audience member asked. This question echoed one real concern (overturning Roe, which would allow states to outlaw abortion) and one false concern (taken from twisting Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s record on presidential immunity).

US Blunders Have Made Russia The Global Trade Pivot

by Mathew Maavak, Activist Post:

The year 2019 had barely begun before news emerged that six Russian sailors were kidnapped by pirates off the coast of Benin. It was perhaps a foretaste of risks to come. As nations reel from deteriorating economic conditions, instances of piracy and other forms of supply chain disruptions are bound to increase.

According to the International Maritime Bureau (IMB), 107 cases of piracy were noted during the first half of 2018 vis-à-vis 87 throughout 2017.  The 2018 tally included 32 cases in Southeast Asian waters and 48 along African shores – representing 75% of the total. To put this figure into perspective, Asian behemoths India and China – despite their vast shorelines – recorded only 2 cases of piracy each during the study period. Russia had none. In terms of hostages taken, the IMB tally read 102 in H1 2018 vs 63 in H1 2017.
