Australia’s mining towns are getting crushed. Not even Sydney is immune.

Perth Investors Fear the Worst

West Australia property investors are suffer as the mining slump lingers. Nearly One-Third Losing Money on Resale.

A report from property research firm CoreLogic shows one-third of investors in Perth property lost money on resale in the December quarter.

They say that goldfish have the shortest memory in the Animal Kingdom… something like 3-seconds.

But it turns out this isn’t actually true.

Researchers at the Israeli Technion Institute of Technology conducted an experiment in 2009 proving that even the tiniest fish could be trained to recall certain sounds after as long as FIVE MONTHS.

According to another study from the University of Chicago, Dolphins ostensibly have the best memories in the Animal Kingdom, and in an experiment were able to recall a distinct whistle after 20 YEARS.

A Retrospective Look At The Work WikiLeaks Made Possible As Assange Remains Silenced

0

by Elizabeth Vos, Disobedient Media:

An argument is only as good as the evidence it cites. For this reason, WikiLeaks embodies one the most significant information armories in existence. John Pilger spoke to this importance when he compared WikiLeaks with a mainstream press that he called nothing more than “state-stenography.” In the wake of news of Assange being cut off from the outside world by order of the Ecuadorian government, Pilger also wrote that the “silencing of Assange is the silencing of us all.”

After this author and other independent journalists, whistleblowers and friends of Assange took part in a ten-hour vigil to call for the journalist’s freedom of speech to be upheld under the banner #ReconnectJulian, many have continued to publicize the injustice of his inability to speak and have contact with the outside world on top of his ongoing arbitrary confinement.

China Moves to Neuter King Dollar in International Trade

by Stefan Gleason, Money Metals:

Last Monday, the Shanghai International Energy Exchange launched the first futures contract for crude oil priced in Chinese yuan. It’s a major step forward in the process of international de-dollarization. Now Chinese and other international traders can buy and sell the world’s most important commodity in a liquid market without using U.S. dollars.

The “petro dollar” now faces the prospect of being rendered unnecessary as China – the world’s biggest oil importer – attempts to establish a “petro yuan.”

China is launching a pilot program to purchase oil from Russia and Angola (two of its top suppliers) using yuan. Russia and China share a common interest in trying to break the dollar’s dominance in global commodity trading.

No Hell for Pope Francis

0

from BATR:

It it has been said many times and my response has always been that, if anything, it is the communists who think like Christians. Christ spoke of a society where the poor, the weak and the marginalized have the right to decide. Not demagogues, not Barabbas, but the people, the poor, whether they have faith in a transcendent God or not. It is they who must help to achieve equality and freedom”.

Pope Francis

Once again, Pope Francis the False Prophet is at it again. Frankie the Fake symbolizes the betrayal of Christendom and the sacred teachings of Jesus Christ. He is the perfect disciple of Satan as this wicked world rapidly achieves an evil Zion that stretches across the planet. Ever since Cain killed Able the depraved nature of a fallen species has flourished over the righteous choices of free will. Billions of deaths have occurred as murder became the universal instrument of human destruction by all barbarians, from every era of history. Now this deceptive Pharisee Judas announces that “Bad souls “are not punished,” Pope Francis is quoted, “those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.”

NATO Plotted ‘Skripal Case’ to Justify Their Defense Spendings – Moscow

from Sputnik News:

The Russian Foreign Ministry says it can’t discern how to convene a NATO-Russia Council in the current climate, considering absurd NATO’s statements regarding a readiness for dialogue while expelling Russian diplomats.

“Yes, indeed, seven people have been declared undesirable. And they (in Brussels) have announced that they will not issue visas to three other employees,” Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Grushko stated at the Valdai Discussion Club’s event.

Dr. Jerome Corsi Ph.D. – The Coming Trump Counterattack vs. The Deep State

0

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

Dr. Jerome Corsi Ph.D. joined us again to talk about his new book Killing the Deep State – The Fight to Save President Trump. The level and depth of the corruption and the plan to depose the President is breathtaking in its audacity and its naiveté. Never before in American History has a secret cabal so openly attempted to subvert the will of the electorate. Now they’re on the defensive and we all hope and pray that they’ll finally be exposed for what they are. It’s coming soon to a courthouse near you.

As the company reels from their latest user data scandal — which saw stock prices plummet — and a market value loss of approximately $100 billion, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been attempting to open discussion about how Facebook can improve.
