78 Percent Of Americans Are Living Paycheck To Paycheck – Including Many Government Workers Affected By The Shutdown

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

In just a few days, this will officially be the longest government shutdown in U.S. history, and there is no end in sight.  President Trump is pledging that he will not sign any spending bill unless it includes funding for a border wall, and the Democrats are promising their supporters that they will never agree to a single penny for a wall.  This could be the confrontation that ends up defining Trump’s presidency, and whoever backs down now is going to look incredibly weak.  But the longer this shutdown lasts, the more painful things are going to become for the hundreds of thousands of federal workers that are going without pay, and for the hundreds of thousands of workers that are employed by government contractors that rely on business from the federal government.

Ruger EC9s

For as long as I can remember, I’ve carried a second (or backup) handgun to my main handgun, and these days we have quite a selection of small, compact handguns to pick from. We’re looking at the new Ruger EC9s 9mm handgun today. It is one super, little, concealed carry piece.

Ruger- Affordable Handguns

I’ve stated this before, but I will say it again; for the most part, Ruger www.ruger.com is producing guns that are for us blue collar workers. Now that’s not to say that they aren’t producing some outstanding upper-end firearms, because they are. However, many of the handguns produced by Ruger are in the very “affordable” price range, if you ask me, and that’s a good thing. I’ve been a fan of Ruger for more years that I can remember, easily more than 40 years.

The Looming Dark Age of Business Warfare

by Phil Butler, New Eastern Outlook:

The United States of America is waging an undeclared war on Russia. It’s a war for empire, a struggle to keep in place a system that can never be sustained. And it’s a conflict that will ultimately lead to a new dark age. This is a report about the unusual business that foreign policy has become.

I woke up the day after Christmas with a strange new sense of the current world crisis. Walking down the street to my office I felt a strange urgency to check my news feed. A second after clicking my desktop to life the reason for the urgency popped up, another Bloomberg bit by Putin hater Leonid Bershidsky struck me strangely. The story was about pipelines tilted to create heroes of anti-Putin Russophobes. But something more came from the financial newspaper page. Gas streams, the competition, the whole “versus” situation we see ourselves in now. There is was!

Trying to manage a structural decline in a terrible industry.

Shares of Harley-Davidson (HOG) dropped 10{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} in the morning after the company reported second-quarter earnings and were down nearly 6{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} at the end of the day. Almost everything was bad.

Warning for humanity: Globalists accelerating depopulation eugenics programs in response to populist uprisings in the UK, USA and around the world

by Mike Adams, Natural News:

In response to the sweeping victory of Boris Johnson in the recent UK elections — as well as rising popular support for President Trump in the United States — globalists are now accelerating their war against humanity that’s being waged through depopulation vectors involving vaccines, chemical contaminants, engineered food shortages and other means.

This doubling down on depopulation efforts is happening because globalists have finally come to realize they cannot force the world’s citizens to surrender to global authoritarianism as was once hoped. The very existence of the EU, for example, represented the beginning stages the globalist-run “utopia” that’s long been promised by the socialists and fascists who currently run the world. They wanted to end national sovereignty, open all borders to unlimited illegal migration, consume the world’s currencies under a one world currency and exert authoritarian rule so that all citizens of the world would be forced to surrender to unelected bureaucrats living out their Hunger Games fantasies.

Ex USAF Colonel & Boeing Engineer Explains What Really Happened During Apollo 13

by Arjun Walia, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts: Colonel Ross Dedrickson, a high ranking military man who spent a long service with the Energy Commission between 1950-1958, claims that the problems with Apollo 13 were handled with care by extraterrestrials.
  • Reflect On: UFOs are no longer taboo and their existence has been verified via documents, photographs and videos released by dozens of governments. To complement this, we have witness testimony. The common theme is that many crafts are extraterrestrial.

Now that mainstream UFO disclosure has taken place and more information continues to be brought to light, more and more people are opening up to the idea that some of these UFOs, which are tracked on radar, photographed and videotaped, are extraterrestrial in origin.
