THE ‘FEVERED INSANITY’ OF THE MEDIA’S SELECTIVE OUTRAGE

0

by Jeffrey Lord, InfoWars:
“Collusion” is the word of the moment

As always, leave it to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich to pithily assess the flood of media stories about Donald Trump Jr.’s 20-minute minute meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of 2016. Appearing on Fox’s My Story, hosted by Martha McCallum, Gingrich had a two word description for all the frenzied coverage: “fevered insanity.”

To which can only be added another two words: “selective outrage.”

Chemical Used to ‘Soften Plastics’ Found in Most Boxed Mac and Cheese

0

from The Anti Media:
Lovers of boxed mac and cheese, prepare to take a hit. According to a recent test conducted in a lab in Belgium, if you’re eating the powdered cheese that comes in the box, you’re probably also eating a group of chemicals called phthalates that are used to soften plastics.

The Coalition for Safer Food Processing and Packaging bought 30 different cheese products from store shelves in the U.S. — 10 different kinds of mac and cheese with cheese powder, five different types of processed sliced cheeses, and 15 varieties of natural cheese — then shipped the package to the Flemish Institute for Technological Research. The institute did not list the brand names of the products they studied.

WATCH: Cops Storm Bar Like It’s a War Zone, Assault Dozens of Innocent People

by Justin Gardner, The Free Thought Project:
Merced, CA – Police stormed into a hookah lounge in the early morning hours on Sunday, July 9 in a manner that can be described as nothing short of terroristic. Video captured by a security guard at Chandelier’s Hookah Lounge shows us once again that all too often, cops are the ones who needlessly escalate situations into fear and violence.

The video begins with multiple cops screaming at patrons to back up, right after barging in with riot guns and batons. The crowd of people enjoying a relaxing Saturday night socializing at the hookah lounge are bewildered and frightened by this sudden act of aggression.

5 Ways To Keep A Tax Farm (Citizens) Producing

1

by Joe Jarvis, Activist Post:
The government depends on the citizens to produce, to create value from which the ruling classes can leech. They need to keep us working and spending in ways that they prescribe in order to insert themselves into transactions which would otherwise have nothing to do with them. Here are five ways that they keep the tax farm going.

1. Credit Cards and Debt

Credit cards, student loan debt, home loans, and car loans all represent an obligation to work full time. Once you have been saddled with debt, you cannot make the choice to take time off to pursue a business endeavor you are passionate about. You are on the hamster wheel.

The more debt you have, the more you have to earn, and the more taxes you will pay on those earnings. The less freedom you have to be productive in an alternative way.

What Role Has Israel Played In the Refugee Crisis?

by Phil Butler, New Eastern Outlook:
Europe has been content to blame its current societal and economic decline on malfeasant leaders like EU Jean-Claude Juncker, German Chancellor Angela Merkel or France’s ex-president François Hollande. If the people of Europe only knew the real actors behind, Israel would not be unscathed in this whole Arab Spring charade. Yes, Europe has the Israelis to thank for sapping what’s left of the EU’s strength. Here’s a story you won’t read in the New York Times, but one the Wall Street Journal will hint at.

This morning I was astonished to find a Wall Street Journal story that framed Israel’s support for Syrian insurgents against the government of President Bashar Hafez al-Assad. In a strange twist of the fates, by reporters Rory Jones in Tel Aviv, Noam Raydan in Beirut and Suha Ma’ayeh in Amman, Jordan, the newspaper owned by Genie Oil investor billionaire Rupert Murdoch suddenly decided to spill some of the beans on Israel’s role in the Syria. The WSJ story is but one of the recent revelations hinting at how Israel played a key role in the conflict that has destroyed Syria, and which has flooded Europe with refugees and potential terrorists. The lead from the WSJ is telling:

Earth’s Economy Glorifies Waste, Exploitation, Debt, Expediency and Magical Thinking

0

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:
Humanity appears to default to magical thinking when faced with untenable situations that demand systemic change.

How would extraterrestrial anthropologists characterize Earth’s dominant socio-economic system? It’s not difficult to imagine their dismaying report:

“Earth’s economy glorifies waste. Its economists rejoice when a product is disposed as waste and replaced with a new product. This waste is perversely labeled ‘growth.’

Aimless wandering that consumes fossil fuels is likewise rejoiced as ‘growth.’

Trump Remaking State Dept to Reflect “America First,” “DoS Officials Nervous”

0

by Pamela Geller, Freedom OutPost:
The State Department has long been compromised — State Department careerists work for the countries they are assigned to, not to America, and that’s the problem. The State Department is the problem. We need patriots and freedom lovers in state craft, not Muslim Brotherhood lackeys.

President Trump is attempting to overhaul the State Department and leave his “America First” stamp on the cumbersome bureaucracy — a move that is reportedly making former officials very nervous.

National Debt Too High, Silver Price Too Low – Gary Christenson

by Gary Christenson, Sprott Money:
Silver currently sells around $16, which would be sensible if the U.S. national debt was much less than its current $20 trillion.

Given the massive national debt and 100 years of experience, silver prices could easily be double or triple their current prices, and far higher in a panic.

WHY?

Examine over a century of official national debt data graphed on a log scale. Official debt in 1913 was $3 billion. Since then it has risen 8{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} to 9{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} every year to reach $20 trillion or $20,000 billion. Debt will continue rising as long as politicians spend and bankers lend.

Proof: Name the Senators, Representatives, Presidents, military contractors, pharmaceutical companies, and Medicare recipients who wish to see the government reduce expenses.

Another Visit With Keith Neumeyer

by Turd Ferguson, TF Metals Report:
With silver prices falling and now near their lows for all of 2017, what a great time to check in once again with Keith Neumeyer, CEO and President of First Majestic Silver as well as Chairman of First Mining Finance.

As most know, Keith is a staunch advocate for our cause. Whenever he’s given a chance, he “calls a spade, a spade” and deplores the level of manipulation and price management within the silver space. As the CEO of one of the largest primary silver miners on the planet, Keith’s leadership on this subject is extraordinarily valuable and important.

To that end, this discussion begins with a review of current events, in particular the “silver flash crash” of July 6. From there, we discuss the global silver market and the impact of low prices upon the miners, especially in the context of all-in, sustaining costs. Next, we discuss conditions as First Majestic and we close with a detailed review of the portfolio of First Mining Finance and an update on some of their most promising assets.

I hope you enjoy this audio. You’ll likely find it very helpful and informative and we thank Keith for once again sharing some of his valuable time with us last week.

10 Affordable Food and Nutritional Items You Can Stockpile Before the Big Crisis Hits

1

by JD Heyes, Natural News:
Second only to firearms and plenty of ammunition in a SHTF prepper scenario is daily nutrition: The ability to feed and sustain yourself for a long period of time, since you probably won’t have any idea how long the emergency will last and how soon “help” will arrive (if ever).

So while you’ve no doubt seen the “lists” of items some people believe you ought to hoard long before such a crisis hits, let’s face it: Many of them are simply unrealistic. That’s because you’d need thousands of dollars and a half-dozen basements to hold all of that stuff.

The fact is, there are a number of food and sustenance items out there that you can not only collect and store long-term, but do so cheaply and with a limited amount of space.
