Doug Casey on the Coming Comfortable Dystopia


by Doug Casey, Casey Research:

Justin’s note: Imagine not being able to board a plane because you forgot to pay your water bill… or being denied access to a train because you jaywalked.

It sounds like something ripped from the pages of George Orwell’s 1984. But this will soon become reality for people living in China. That’s because the Chinese government is getting ready to roll out a social credit system.

Basically, the Chinese government will soon prevent people from accessing everyday services if they aren’t deemed “good citizens.”

A “Whistleblower” Blows The Lid Off Microwave Towers

by Catherine Frompovich, Activist Post:

Sometimes one has to question whether it is correct to submit information or forget it, especially when one part of the resource is extremely revealing and enlightening, while another part is seemingly esoteric, so it makes one wonder.

That’s the dilemma I find myself debating in the video which bears the title 5G Death Towers: Whistle Blower blows lid off 5G Death Towers.

The reasons for my concerns are the actualities that a cell tower worker “whistleblower” reveals in some extremely startling information in Part 1 and two other microwave company employees tell in Part 2:

Moment Of Clarity: Bill Introduced In Congress To Define The Dollar As A FIXED WEIGHT OF GOLD


from Silver Doctors:

It’s just a bill in the House Financial Services Committee, and it ignores that the Constitution requires silver as well, but hey, it’s a start. Here’s the details…

Check out our pages on the gold standard and sound money for more information about what is required by the United States Constitution.

The bottom line is that Article 1 Section 8 gives the power to Congress:

“To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures”

Trump’s Revenge on Amazon


by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:

Regardless of the merits or demerits of the Amazon business model, prosecutors could bring a case against “bigness” per se as an example to the rest of Corporate America and to demonstrate that the antitrust laws are an effective government tool.

And it all begins with a letter.

Antitrust suits do not start with full-blown litigation on day one. They begin with a letter of inquiry. This notifies the target company that the Justice Department is looking into possible antitrust violations and asks for the company’s cooperation in providing needed books and records.

Pope Chastises Christians for Global Strife, Not Muslims


by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Pope Francis is not only disastrously wrongheaded about an obvious fact that is reinforced by every day’s headlines; he is also deceiving and misleading his people about a matter of utmost importance, and keeping them ignorant and complacent about a growing and advancing threat. Yes, Christians should feel shame – shame that this man is Pope.

Never missing an opportunity to confuse, disappoint, and demoralize the Catholic faithful, Pope Francis, according to the Latin American Herald Tribune, said on Good Friday that “Christians ought to express shame for the actions of those who are leaving future generations a world ‘fractured by divisions and wars.’”

‘Gun-Free’ London’s Murder Rate Surpasses New York As STABBINGS SURGE


by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

In a nation that’s a gigantic gun-free zone, stabbings have surged to the point that the capital has surpassed the murder rate of New York City. The British city’s surge in violent stabbings has seen the murder rate also spike as citizens have been denied the right to defend themselves from attacks.

A massive decline in crime has helped to transform New York City, where London is facing the opposite effect. The total number of murders in London has fluctuated over the years, but it’s risen by 38 percent since 2014. And now, deadly stabbings in England and Wales are now at their highest levels since 2011, rising by 12 percent in the year ending December 2017.

In 1990, of 2,245 people were murdered. Last year, however, that number dropped nearly 90 percent to 290 murders. The Sunday Times reported 15 people were murdered in London in February while 14 were murdered in New York City. Both cities are very diverse with large populations. London has over 8.7 million residents and New York City has about 8.5 million.

British Empire War Plans Already Backfiring

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

The Russian Embassy in London sent a list of 14 questions to the British Foreign Office which, in themselves, demonstrate the total fraud of the British declaration of Russian guilt for the nerve agent attack on two Russian citizens in Salisbury. Among the questions: Why has the U.K. presented no evidence; why have they broken several international laws and protocols to prevent access to the victims; what antidotes did the U.K. have on hand for the nerve agent, and how did they obtain them; do they have a control agent of the so-called Novichok; has the U.K. developed the agent themselves?

But also included in the list of questions is the revelation, not previously known, that the French are deeply involved in the investigation. Why, the Russians ask, and on what grounds? What U.K. legislation or international protocols allow for the French to be engaged in an attack on Russian citizens on U.K. soil, and what have the French been given access to?

Brick & Mortar Retail Meltdown, March Update


by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

And private equity firms are at the helm.

March was a busy month for the brick-and-mortar retail meltdown which kicked off in 2015 and has since picked up speed. We’ve followed this progression from the early days. This year, there was a brutal January, an even more brutal February, and here’s March.

Southeastern Grocers, parent of Winn-Dixie, filed for bankruptcy on March 28. It’s buckling under its debts. Its creditors have agreed to restructure some of this debt in return for equity, which will reduce the debt by $500 million. The company has also secured new financing once it emerges from bankruptcy. In the Chapter 11 filing, it said it plans to continue operating over 580 stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, and South Carolina. On March 14, when the company initially had announced bankruptcy plans, it also said that it would close 94 of its stores.

After Demanding Rights Violations, Parkland Students Upset At Violations Of Their Rights


by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

The students at Marjorie Douglas High School returned to school to enhanced security measures. Now, after weeks of demanding the government violate their rights, they are upset that the government has violated their rights.

According to The Hill, a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student said the increased security measures her school is taking in the wake of February’s mass shooting will make going back to school following spring break even more difficult.

“It feels like being punished … It feels like jail, being checked every time we go to school,” said Isabelle Robinson, a senior at the Parkland, Florida high school. Failing to grasp the hypocrisy in their actions after demanding the government violates their rights and the rights of others who are completely innocent of the mass shooting, the students are now massively offended that they’ve had their rights violated.

MARKET MELTDOWN CONTINUES: Gold & Silver Prices Begin To Disconnect

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:

As the BLOOD continues to run on Wall Street, gold and silver were the few assets trading in the green today. As I have mentioned in past articles and interviews, investors need to get used to this sort of trading activity. Even though the Dow Jones Index ended off its lows of the day, it shed another 458 points while the Nasdaq declined 190 points and the S&P fell 60.

As the broader markets sold off, the gold price increased $15 while silver jumped by $0.25. However, if we look at these markets during their peak of trading, the contrast is even more remarkable:
