in Editorial , 221 references Ignore this thread Speeches, Facts And Fences

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

Dueling speeches….

Trump, for all his warts, actually read off a teleprompter it appears.  He was quite focused and didn’t display any of his trademark mannerisms.  That is neither good or bad, it just is.

Pelosi and Schumer, on the other hand, dodged the existential question of the shutdown and border: The Democrats have never negotiated on the actual border and actual security.  They have repeatedly given things (such as DACA) that are legally impermissible, relying on the courts to prevent an unlawfully-given thing from being retracted.

As such there is no other way than to “hold the government hostage” to get them to negotiate.

Gold And Silver Are Acting Like It’s 2008. They May Be Right


by John Rubino, Dollar Collapse:

2008 has special significance for gold bugs, both because of the money they lost in August of year and the money they made in the half-decade that followed. Today’s world is beginning to feel eerily similar.

Let’s start with a little background. The mid-2000s economy boomed in part because artificially low interest rates had ignited a housing mania which featured a huge increase in “subprime” mortgage lending. This – as all subprime lending binges eventually do – began to unravel in 2007. The consensus view was that subprime was “peripheral” and therefore unimportant. Here’s Fed Chair Ben Bernanke giving ever-credulous CNBC the benefit of his vast bubble experience.

Mueller’s Report Confirms there was No Russian Hack to Begin With

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

Mueller’s Report is what was expected. The report does conclude that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia during the 2016 election, according to the letter from Barr to Congress. It notes that Mueller’s investigation found the campaign was given “multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign” but no one within the campaign or “anyone associated with it” conspired with Russia.

ROSEANNE: They replaced my reruns with COSBY!


by Kyle Olson, The American Mirror:

If only Roseanne Barr had called Valerie Jarrett a “feckless c*nt” like Samantha Bee referred to Ivanka Trump, an apology would have sufficed.

Alas, it didn’t, so TV execs are replacing her show with that of a convicted sex abuser.

After Barr said Jarrett resembled someone from “Planet of the Apes,” her show was summarily canceled, and now, the star says her reruns are being pulled, too.

get this! they pulled all my reruns and replaced me with COSBY! it’s kinda hilariously gross.

Italian Bishop: I Would ‘Turn All Churches into Mosques’ to Save Migrants

by Thomas D. Williams Ph.D., Breitbart:

ROME — An Italian bishop has said that he would be willing to see an end to Christianity and the dominion of Islam if it meant saving migrants’ lives, Italian media reported Monday.

“Morally and as a man of faith I would be willing to turn all churches into mosques if it were useful to the cause and if it helped to save the lives of poor and unhappy men and women, because Christ did not come to earth to build churches but to help men regardless of race, religion, or nationality,” said the former bishop of Caserta, Raffaele Nogaro, earlier this month.

Little known natural treatments for cancer blow away widely held myths


by Tracey Watson, Natural News:

A cancer diagnosis is truly one of the most terrifying things a human can ever face. It is understandable that at such a time a person might be drawn to the apparent security of relying on the recommendations of the “qualified” doctor or oncologist who suggests a regimen of chemotherapy and/or radiation as the best chance of beating this terrifying disease.

Nonetheless, it is precisely when receiving such a diagnosis that a person most needs to remain calm and face the true facts, one of which is the fact that conventional cancer treatments do not represent the best course of action.

Many natural health advocates, including Mike Adams of Natural News, have for years been warning that chemotherapy is not only largely ineffective, but often dangerous. This fact has been backed up by several studies, including a recent study by a research team from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at Yeshiva University. That study found that “chemotherapy, despite decreasing tumor size, increases the risk of metastatic dissemination.” In other words, on the surface, chemotherapy might appear to reduce the physical size of a tumor, but it increases the risk that the cancer will metastasize, or spread elsewhere in the body.

11 Rage-Inducing Facts About America’s Wildly Out Of Control Student Loan Debt Bubble


by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Higher education has become one of the biggest money-making scams in America.  We tell all of our young people that if they want to have a bright future, they must go to college.  This message is relentlessly pounded into their heads for their first 18 years, and so by the time high school graduation rolls around for many of them it would be unthinkable to do anything else.  And instead of doing a cost/benefit analysis on various schools, we tell our young people to go to the best college that they can possibly get into and to not worry about what it will cost.  We assure them that a great job will be there after they graduate and that great job will allow them to easily pay off any student loans that they have accumulated.  Of course most college graduates don’t end up getting great jobs, but many of them do end up being financially crippled for decades by student loan debt.

TRUTH PURGE: YouTube changes search algorithms after “misinformation” during Las Vegas shooting

from The Verge:

YouTube has changed its search algorithms to display more reliable and trustworthy sources after the violent attack in Las Vegas saw a spike in misinformation and hateful content appear on the site, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The paper reports that on Tuesday the fifth result shown when a user searches “Las Vegas shooting” showed a video that claimed there were multiple shooters involved (authorities had confirmed there was only one). The video, called “Proof Las Vegas Shooting Was a FALSE FLAG attack—Shooter on 4th Floor,” had received 1.1 million views in 27 hours. YouTube removed the video on Wednesday.

A source familiar with YouTube told the WSJ the video streaming site is accelerating the rollout of planned changes to its search engine in response to criticism. YouTube began showing more reliable sources in search results on Wednesday, but hasn’t revealed how it determines which sources are authoritative and which aren’t.

“When it comes to news, we have thousands of news publishers that present a variety of viewpoints,” the company said in an email to the WSJ.

YouTube uses algorithms when ranking videos in search results and in choosing videos to feature on Up Next in the video player. The company had been working on tweaks to its search results for months but implemented the changes earlier than planned, the source said. The source also noted the changes still need work.

YouTube’s parent company Google also faced backlash and was forced to apologize after it featured a 4chan thread that misidentified the shooter in its Top News section. Following the Las Vegas shooting, Facebook’s Safety Check page was also filled with scammers and hoaxes.
