New Study: Mask Mandates Had Zero Effect In Florida Or Nationwide (But The Lie Continues)

from Humans Are Free:

Obviously, no amount of evidence, data, trends, facts, studies, or science will ever convince most ‘public health officials’ that masks aren’t doing squat to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Cases and deaths continue to spike (yes, many of these are super-sensitive PCR test-driven numbers, but still) despite the fact that well over 90% of the country are complying with their absurd mandates.

Yet, predictably, the virus keeps going right on virusing, as highly contagious respiratory viruses, unfortunately, tend to do, especially once cold weather hits.

Has the Next Major Currency Crisis Begun?

by Doug Casey, Casey Research:

“We love installments here.”

“If you can get 12 months, that’s good. But 24 months is even better.”

An Argentine lawyer told me that last week. We were chatting in a pub in Palermo, a neighborhood in Buenos Aires.

Now, you might be wondering how we got on the riveting subject of payment plans. I’ll tell you. We were talking about Argentina’s money problems.

In case you haven’t heard, inflation in Argentina is off the charts right now.

Brenda Snipes submitted her resignation as the elections supervisor of Broward County, Florida. Her decision came one day after Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum offered his second concession to Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) in the Sunshine State’s gubernatorial election.

“I think I have served the purpose that I came here for, which was to provide a credible election product for our voters,” said Snipes last week during a press conference.

Why interest rates are rising long-term

0

by Alasdair Macleod, GoldMoney:

There are growing expectations that the current cycle of rising interest rates will result in a deflationary recession. While a credit crisis is increasingly likely to evolve in the coming months, it is a highly inflationary situation. A combination of higher interest rates and catastrophic falls in the purchasing power of fiat currencies will continue to plague welfare-driven states in the wake of a credit crunch. The standard post-crisis solution of monetary and fiscal reflation will not be available. This article examines the ultimate consequences of the West’s abandonment of sound money, free markets and wealth creation in favour of increasing state intervention and wealth destruction.

Reports: US Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) Lands at Langley!

0

from Hal Turner:

Reports are beginning to surface that a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) landed at Langley on Saturday.  

A Marine expeditionary unit (MEU, pronounced “Mew”),  is the smallest Marine air-ground task force (MAGTF) in the United States Fleet Marine Force. Each MEU is an expeditionary quick reaction force, deployed and ready for immediate response to any crisis, whether it be natural disaster or combat missions.

A Marine expeditionary unit is normally composed of: a reinforced Marine infantry battalion (designated as a Battalion Landing Team) as the ground combat element, a composite medium tiltrotor squadron forms the aviation combat element, a combat logistics battalion provides the logistics combat element, and a company-size command element serves as the MEU headquarters group.

Troop strength is about 2,200 and usually commanded by a colonel, and is deployed from amphibious assault ships. Currently, a Marine expeditionary unit embarks Marines and equipment onto the amphibious warfare ships of an Expeditionary Strike Group (ESG) which also includes escort ships and submarines to protect them from air, surface, and submarine threats. For further protection and strong air support, such an ESG is often deployed along with one or more carrier battle groups.

WITNESSES

According to persons who reside near Langley, a large contingent of Marines arrived at CIA Headquarters in tilt-rotor aircraft and when the Marines deplaned, they were armed and moved quickly into CIA Headquarters! (I did not personally witness this and am relying solely on what witnesses are telling me)

Those witnesses also say that a significant number of tilt-rotor aircraft could be clearly seen circling the grounds of CIA Headquarters, parked on the grass around the building.

This is not normal.

Never before has anything like this ever been seen taking place at CIA Headquarters and speculation is now running rampant as to what is actually taking place.

Conspiracy Theorists are claiming the President of the United States is moving to take out rogue elements in the Intelligence Community, at the request of his new CIA Director.  It is rumored that these rogue elements have been undermining the Administration since before it took office last January, and may be connected to some well publicized “incidents” which suddenly resumed taking place this year, (mass shootings / violent protests) after a brief respite once the Obama Administration left office.

Moreover, there is not one word of Marines landing at Langley, appearing in _any_ US mass-media outlet.

 

UPDATE  5:51 AM EST —

The number of SEALED INDICTMENTS presently on US District Court Dockets across the United States has reached an astonishing 1800 as of Friday, November 17.  These Sealed  Indictments began appearing on US District Court Dockets on October 31.   

There have never been this many Sealed Indictments showing on federal court Dockets at the same time . . .  ever.

The existence of so many sealed Indictments has lead others to suggest that large groups of federal officials – perhaps including elected officials – are facing mass arrest over a number of corruption-related activities such as “pay-to-play” the UraniumOne conspiracy, Pedophile Rings and other criminal activities, and these troops may be needed to keep order once the high officials start being taken under arrest!

This is especially interesting given revelations late last week, that an FBI Informant allegedly has VIDEO of Clinton Foundation people being given suitcases full of cash from Russians, prior to the approval of the UraniumOne deal which sold twenty percent of US Uranium manufacturing to Russia’s state-owned ROSATOM corporation.  

The existence of video showing cash payoffs has sent a slew of people from the former Administration into fits of anxiety that their schemes are now uncovered and many of them are going to prison for what they did.  Desperate people can sometimes do desperate things and if those people are high-ranking federal officials, God only knows what they might have in the works to try to save themselves.

This is a developing story.  Updates will be made as information becomes available.

UPDATE 9:17 PM EST —

Despite actually having a personal life, and despite today being Sunday, which is family time, I have done a LOT of digging on this story.  I have reached out to contacts in both the Pentagon and in several Intel Agencies and here is what I can confirm:

This story has gone viral and sadly, a number of people who copied the story, added some of their own speculation or assumptions.  Some of the copies offer absolutely wild variations on the basic report above.

Nowhere on this web site did I even make mention of any “coup” against the President.  Those rumors came from others acting on their own.  

Nowhere on this web site did I claim there were 2200 Marines sent to the CIA.  I reported the typical size of an MEU as being typically 2200 and some readers  assumed that all 2200 went to CIA. 

Now, about the troops.  I have been told that ” a very significant number” of troops WERE sent to CIA and arrived via aircraft on Saturday, November 18.  I was not told a precise number.  I was not told WHY they were sent.  I was not told what time they were sent.

My article above reports that a Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) is comprised of about 2200 Marines.  That’s factually accurate. 

But the Ground Combat Element of an MEU is 1100 troops.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN TO GET SPECIAL TREATMENT IN JAIL SO HE DOESN’T GET ‘EPSTEINED’

by John Vibes, The Waking Times:

Disgraced film producer and convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein will receive special treatment in jail because authorities fear that he may end up dead, much like fellow predator Jeffrey Epstein did.

In an attempt to prevent a similar situation from occurring, Weinstein will have his own cell and will have a dedicated team of correction officers monitoring him at all times. If authorities decide that it is necessary, he may even be moved to a different facility.

Thousands Protest Coronavirus Restrictions And Vaccines In Romanian Capital (EU)

from Humans Are Free:

Thousands of protesters gathered in Romania’s capital, Bucharest, on Sunday to protest COVID-19 restrictions and vaccinations, which they fear will become compulsory.

Photos taken by The Associated Press and others on social media showed large crowds carrying signs and other materials with anti-mask and anti-vaccine slogans, including one reading, “Say no to forced vaccination.”

Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce Calculates an Unemployed Worker Makes $35 an Hour

by Mish Shedlock, The Street:

The average Illinoisan earns $55,770 a year. Collecting unemployment, it’s only $4,000 less.

Why Work?

Illinois’ unemployment rate rose to 7.2% July 15, the 8th worst in the nation. At the same time employers are having trouble filling job vacancies.

The average Illinoisan earns $55,770 a year at work.  If that person stayed home with their kids and collected unemployment, it would be $51,627.

Crunch the numbers another way and add federal stimulus, and the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce calculated an unemployed worker receives $35 an hour.

The ‘other’ deficit is near an all-time high

by Simon Black, Sovereign Man:

It’s only Wednesday, and yet it’s already been a terrible weak for America’s record-setting deficit.

And no, I’m not talking about the country’s record-high fiscal deficits, which include the eye-popping $50+ trillion Social Security shortfall, and the $28.5 trillion national debt.

I’m actually referring to an even bigger deficit– one of the biggest the country has ever faced.

It’s larger than the national debt, the Social Security shortfall, the COVID bailouts, and just about every financial deficit combined.
