The Decline and Fall of the European Union

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

This exhaustion of the neocolonial-neofeudal model was inevitable, and as a result, so too is the decline and fall of the European integration/exploitation project.

That a single currency, the euro, would fracture rather than unite Europe was understood long before the euro’s introduction as legal tender on January 1, 2002. The euro, the currency of 19 of the 28 member states of the European Union, is only one of the various institutions tying the member nations of the European union together, but it is the linchpin of the financial integration touted as one of the primary benefits of EU membership.

by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:

Update and author’s note

The article below entitled Trump, The Manchurian Candidate: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Campaign to Destabilize the Trump Presidency was published on January 4, 2017 prior to the inauguration of president Trump.

The War Against America’s Only Anti-War Candidate

by Gordon Duff, New Eastern Outlook:

Born in American Samoa, Representative (Major) Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, a Democrat and, far more than Trump, someone who stands against hypocrisy and fakery of every kind, is now running for President of the United States. Unlike Trump or Clinton or Obama or Romney or so many, Tulsi is military, a decorated combat veteran.

Unlike all of them, she is openly against war as a basis for American “diplomacy.”

Gabbard continues to serve as a Major in the Army National Guard after two combat tours in Iraq, one in 2004 as enlisted and a second as a platoon commander in 2009.

That was fast: Gov. Newsom wants new tax on drinking water

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

Newsom not wasting any time in quickly creating new taxes for Californians.

Elections have consequences.

As reported by SF GateIn order to help disadvantaged communities obtain safe and affordable drinking water, California Governor Gavin Newsom is proposing a new statewide water tax.

In the newly-released 2019-20 budget, Newsom calls for the creation of a “safe and affordable drinking water fund” that would “enable the State Water Resources Control Board to assist communities, particularly disadvantaged communities, in paying for the short-term and long-term costs of obtaining access to safe and affordable drinking water.”

‘100 Days of Gun Control’ Begins at State, Federal Levels

from Govt Slaves:

Liberal Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo will push for more gun control in New York, a state that already has among the strictest gun laws in the nation; Democrats are pushing additional gun restrictions in Washington State, and on Capitol Hill, Democrats in Congress also want to clamp down on Second Amendment rights, and it will all happen in the next 100 days.

The New York Times may have best defined the situation when it reported this week that, “Emboldened House Democrats, seeking a politically charged debate on gun control… are signaling that it is a top priority.”

Dishonest Dems now trying to change election rules nationwide to make sure they can never lose again

by Vicki Batts, via DC Clothesline:

(Natural News) Congressional Democrats are now looking to dismantle the Constitution and radically change the nation’s electoral process. Naturally, all of the changes proposed by liberal politicians serve to benefit the Democratic party, and undermine the core principles upon which the United States was founded. Just when you start to think the American Left couldn’t get any more disgraceful, they go prove you wrong. The Constitution was designed to protect the citizens of the United States from tyranny and to limit government power, and it is clear that the left-wing is trying to change that.

Magma Under The Yellowstone Supervolcano Is “Rising”, And Scientists Warn That An Eruption Would Devastate The Entire Planet

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Could it be possible that a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano is not too far away?  All over the world seismic activity has been increasing in recent years, and this process seems to have accelerated during the early days of 2019.  In particular, quite a few once dormant volcanoes are springing to life again, and this has many concerned about what could potentially happen at Yellowstone.  Of course Yellowstone has never been “dormant”, but there have been new signs of life over the past six months.  Entirely new geysers have sprung out of the ground, Steamboat Geyser has been the most active that it has been in decades, and some geysers have even been shooting “debris and rocks” into the sky.  And now we are being told that “a 465-mile-long piece of molten rock” is “rising” directly under Yellowstone
