Here Come the Architects: Modernists Want Glass Roof, Steel Spire, or Minaret for Notre Dame

by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart:

Modern architects have begun circling the charred remains of Notre Dame, proposing that it should not be faithfully restored, but rebuilt with “contemporary” features such as a glass roof, steel spire, or even a minaret.

With leading academics and professionals in architecture generally being hostile to building or restoring anything in styles predating the infamous Le Corbusier (Charles-Édouard Jeanneret) and the Bauhaus school, they were quick to pounce when President Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister announced there would be a competition to “ask the question of whether we should even recreate the spire as it was conceived… Or if, as is often the case in the evolution of heritage, we should endow Notre-Dame with a new spire”.

MORE STRANGENESS ABOUT THE NOTRE DAME FIRE

by Joseph P. Farrell, Giza Death Star:

We’re still not at the stage we can move the sad story of the burning of Notre Dame from the “You Tell Me” tab to the “Call it Conspiracy” tab, but just so the record is clear, I’m right on the cusp. Thus far, I’ve had all sorts of weird stories emailed to me, including one that claimed that a famous international theme park operator and movie-maker wanted to donate to the rebuilding fund. As far as I can tell, M. Macron’s idea of turning this into an “international effort” was serious, and as far as I am concerned, extremely dubious. Let us be very clear here: yes, Notre Dame is very much a French monument; kings and queens worshipped there,

Why Chinese Banks Are Running Out Of Dollars

from ZeroHedge:

Following the biggest quarterly credit injection in Chinese history, it is safe to say that China’s banks are flush with yuan loans. However, when it comes to dollar-denominated assets, it’s a different story entirely. As the WSJ points out, in the past few years, a funding problem has emerged for China’s biggest commercial banks, one which is largely outside of Beijing’s control: they’re running low on US dollars so critical to fund operations both domestically and abroad.

As shown in the chart below, the combined dollar liabilities at China’s four biggest commercial banks exceeded their dollar assets at the end of 2018, a sharp reversal from just a few years ago. Back in 2013, the four together had around $125 billion more dollar assets than liabilities, but now they owe more dollars to creditors and customers than are owed to them.

Social Security and Medicare — Still Going Broke

by Peter Schiff, Schiff Gold:

Last year, the Social Security and Medicare trustees warned that the programs are going broke. A year later — they’re still going broke.

Social Security will dip begin dipping into reserves in order to pay out benefits next year and those reserves will run dry in 2035, according to the annual Social Security and Medicare trustees report that was released Monday.

When reserves dry up, the system will no longer be able to pay full benefits.

How The Mercers Plotted To Control American Discourse

by William Craddick, Disobedient Media:

Is populist nationalism in a slump or is it simply being set up to fail?

The rise and slow decline of Breitbart News has been a symptom of a larger phenomena where populism hit a rocky patch in 2018 after an explosion of growth two years prior. Many pundits and political thinkers have grappled with the ideological challenges that populism faces, but none have tackled a core weakness crippling the movement. Outlets such as Breitbart have, since the beginning of their rise in popularity, been infiltrated and controlled by parties known for funding both sides of the political aisle with the goal of creating a controlled opposition doomed to implode onto itself.

HUGE! Rep. John Ratcliffe Confirms How Comey, Yates, McCabe and Rosenstein Were Caught Lying on FISA Warrants to Spy on Trump (VIDEO)

by Jim Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

On Monday night Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) a former US Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas joined former Rep. Jason Chaffetz on The Ingraham Angle to discuss the latest developments in the deep state attempted coup on President Donald Trump.

Cell Tower Removed from School After Multiple Students and Teachers Diagnosed with Cancer

by Matt Agorist, The Free Thought Project:

After close to a dozen people attending and living near a school with a cell tower inside the campus have been diagnosed with cancer, parents and officials have had the tower removed.
