Loretta Lynch accuses Comey of misrepresenting key Clinton probe conversation, was ‘quite surprised’ by his testimony

from True Pundit:

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has flatly accused former FBI Director James Comey of mischaracterizing her statements by repeatedly alleging, under oath, that Lynch privately instructed him to call the Hillary Clinton email probe a “matter” instead of an “investigation.”

Lynch, who testified that Comey’s claim left her “quite surprised,” made the dramatic remarks at a joint closed-door session of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees last December. A transcript of her testimony was released on Monday by House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins, R-Ga.

Weaponizing 5G and Nanotechnology: Protecting Yourself from Nanotechnology and Frequency Radiation

from Humans Are Free:

Previously, I wrote about the weapon-like qualities of nanotechnology and terahertz frequency radiation. As was explained, these two technologies can be combined to weaken our health, create illness, and control our minds. 

In response to that article, one of our readers asked this question:

I had been taking this oral spray, and found it effective for mercury from amalgams, and brain fog, and removing a precancerous skin growth.

John Solomon Reports: Bucket Five Release Within 7 to 8 Days…

from The Conservative Treehouse:

Journalist John Solomon reports the first batch of documents to be declassified in the next seven to eight days will surround “bucket five“:

Bucket Five – Intelligence documents that were presented to the Gang of Eight in 2016 that pertain to the FISA application used against U.S. person Carter Page; including all exculpatory intelligence documents that may not have been presented to the FISA Court.

Presumably this would include the recently revealed State Dept Kavalac email; and the FBI transcripts from wiretaps of George Papadopoulos (also listed in Carter Page FISA).

LOCK HER UP: Did Dianne Feinstein just violate The Logan Act while Conversing with Iran’s Foreign Minister?

by Dean Garrison, DC Clothesline:

Dianne Feinstein was recently caught on the phone with Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister. It is NOT within her jurisdiction to negotiate with Iran. So if she did attempt to negotiate, she is in violation of The Logan Act and could POTENTIALLY face up to 3 years in prison.

Ever heard of The Logan Act Dianne?

Rob Kirby – Federal Slush Funds Working Their Magic

by Kerry Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

Rob Kirby believes that trillions of dollars have been created in a run up to the eventual demise of the dollar. Foreigners are aware of this situation and are starting to cut their losses. The reality is that the American people have been lied to on a vast scale. Rob believes it’s the source of most of the world’s geo-political problems. If nothing is done the system will collapse and the question becomes when.

SEA OF RED: Majority Of U.S. Shale Companies Took A Beating Q1 2019

by Steve St. Angelo, SRSRocco Report:

The overwhelming majority of U.S. shale companies were hit hard due to lower oil prices in the first quarter of the year.  Just about every shale company that I keep track of suffered negative free cash flows in Q1 2019.  This was quite a surprise as Rystad Energy claimed that the breakeven price for U.S. tight oil (shale oil) was the second lowest in the world at $46 a barrel, right behind Saudi Arabia at $42.

According to the U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA), the average West Texas Oil price in Q1 2019 was $54.82, down from $60 in the last quarter of 2018.  However, even with receiving nearly $55 a barrel, the majority of U.S. shale companies posted negative free cash flows.  I was quite surprised when I researched the data.

China’s Nuclear Option to Sell US Treasurys

by Keith Weiner, Gold Seek:

We have deviated, these past several weeks, from matters monetary. We have written a lot about a nonmonetary driver of higher prices—mandatory useless ingredients. The government forces businesses to put ingredients into their products that consumers don’t know about, and don’t want. These useless ingredients, such as ADA-compliant bathrooms and supply chain tracking, add a lot to the price of every good. Of course higher prices are reflected in the Consumer Price Index. And people say it is inflation.

US Home Sales Drop, Drop, Drop Despite Lower Mortgage Rates. But Mortgage Applications Jump. What Gives?

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

Where are the foreign investors in this phenomenon?

Declining home sales in the US is a phenomenon that baffles the industry, given that mortgage rates have dropped sharply from the recent peak in November, and home sales should have jumped, logically speaking. But no.

Sales of existing homes – single-family houses, townhouses, condos, and co-ops – in April ticked down from March and fell 4.4% from April last year, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.19 million homes, according to the National Association of Realtors, after having dropped 5.4% year-over-year in March, 2.3% in February, 8.7% in January, and 10.1% in December. The drops in November through January had been the largest since Housing Bust 1 (data via YCharts):
