FL SEN: Oh, So 200,000 Non-Citizens Might Have Voted In 2018 Elections

by Matt Vespa, Townhall:

The ballot counting in Florida elections is a shambles. The gubernatorial race is a shambles. The agricultural commissioner’s race is a shambles. And the Senate race is a shambles. We’re all heading for recounts in these races—and the two counties that keep chipping away at GOP vote totals, Broward and Palm Beach, are the most liberal in the state. They’ve violated state law by not posting regular updates on ballots left outstanding.

Latest de-dollarization move comes from one of the U.S.’s biggest allies

by Kenneth Schortgen, Shotgun Economics:

While the sanction war America started against Russia in 2013 appears to have opened the door to de-dollarization, Washington’s latest gambit towards Iran seems to have fully opened the floodgates.  And that is because the latest country to willingly accept trade outside the dollar just happens to be a long-standing ally of the U.S..

South Korea and Iran have agreed to switch to national currencies in trade exchanges as the sides aim to strengthen relations despite the US sanctions on Tehran.

SWIFT Cuts Off Iran Central Bank As Tehran Sells 700,000 Barrels To Anonymous Direct Buyers

from ZeroHedge:

As reported last week, shortly after SWIFT caved to US pressure and defied the EU announcing it would cut off a selection of Iranian banks, on Monday, the US Treasury said the Iranian Central Bank has been officially cut off the SWIFT financial messaging system. The disconnection, which comes at a time when Iran’s economy is reeling and its currency is tumbling as a result of restricted oil exports (albeit offset by numerous temporary waivers for top Iranian oil clients), will made it far more difficult for the Islamic Republic to settle import and export bills.

France Wants European Army to Protect Europe from US, China Russia

by Mish Shedlock, The Maven:

Trump blasted French French President Emmanuel Macron in a Tweet for Macron’s “insulting” reasons for wanting an army.

French President Emmanuel Macron called for the creation of a “true European army,” issuing a sharp critique of trans-Atlantic security ties days before U.S. President Trump is due to visit France.

Europe’s security ties with the U.S., which have been a bedrock of the continent’s stability for decades, have come under strain as Mr. Trump has demanded more military spending from European members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and questioned the alliance’s benefits for the U.S. Such tensions have led Mr. Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to publicly question whether the continent can still rely on the U.S. to come to Europe’s defense.

Creepy Porn Lawyers’ disgusting assault on Tucker Carlson and his 19 year old daughter (Video)


by Alex Christoforou, The Duran:

Days after ANTIFA targeted Fox News’ Tucker Carlson’s home, trying to intimidate and scare the TV host into curbing his free speech against totalitarian mob rule propagated by ANTIFA and their paymasters, it appears that the SJW establishment swamp is going after Tucker with everything they got…sending in the expendable, and always eager to get publicity, Creepy Porn Lawyer, Michael Avenatti, to try and ensnare Carlson in some sort of racist assault scandal.

The entire event appears to be a staged, purposefully hitting upon all the right identity politics buttons…so as to maximize full SJW pressure on Tucker and Fox News.

This County Is A Hot Zone For Chaos And Mass Deception As Florida Sheriff Warns Of ‘The Beginning Of Anarchy’

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

– Broward County Is The Home To Debbie Wasserman Schultz, David Hogg, The #MAGABomber, Sheriff Scott Israel And The Mysterious Death Of A Federal Prosecutor

While Escambia County, Florida Sheriff David Morgan recently sent a facebook message to Broward County, Florida following the massive mid-term election voting fraud that is taking place there: “If you were in my county, the National News would be watching a ‘perp walk'”, if Brenda Snipes were trying to pull the kind of shenanigans she’s trying to pull now in, say, 18th century France, the ‘perp walk’ would be a ‘do not pass go, do not collect $200’ walk straight to the guillotine and ‘off with her head’ for attempting to steal an election.

Italy Refuses to Yield to Brussels – Is Another Exit in the Works?


by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

Italy is arguing that it will retain its budget and refers to how both France and Germany exceeded their budgets and the Commission disregard the Maastricht treaty rules in the case of both countries. In the budget dispute, the Italian government was not deterred by the threat of penalties from the European Commission. Finance Minister Giovanni Tria said last week that Italy would commit “economic suicide” to stick to the plans of the previous government to reduce the deficit.

Economy Rolling Over: Focus On Housing And Tariffs

by Peter Schiff, Schiff Gold:

As the stock market was tanking last month, Peter Schiff said a recession is obviously coming. Now things have calmed down a little bit and everybody seems convinced October was just a bad month —  a needed correction. But as Peter has been saying, there are some fundamentals everybody is ignoring that look really bad. The housing market, in particular, is showing signs of trouble. In fact, we don’t have a booming economy; we have a bubble.

In an article published on Seeking Alpha, Mad Genious Economics provides an in-depth breakdown of an economy rolling over, focusing specifically on housing and auto markets, the trade war and banking.
