What Credit Problem? China Offers Credit To All: $685 Billion Dollars In One Month!!!!

from WallStForMainSt:

Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping Demonstrate Why the British Fear Them, and Why Trump Is Right to Be Friends With Both

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

The urgency of convening LaRouche’s “Four Powers” — Russia, China, India and the U.S. — to implement a New Bretton Woods reform of the bankrupt western financial system, and finally put an end to the geopolitics of the British Empire, was demonstrated today by major speeches by Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. The speech by Putin — his annual state of the union to the Federal Assembly — and by Xi — a speech to the scientists and engineers who placed the Chang’e 4 on the far side of the Moon — conveyed an optimism and a vision for the future of Mankind which reflected the ideas and the passion of Lyndon LaRouche over these past fifty years. If not for the frantic British coup attempt against President Trump, his stated commitment to such optimism and scientific progress would be lifting the US out of the Western morass, to join Russia and China in the New Silk Road, in cooperation in space, and in building a new global financial system to replace the broken gambling casinos in London and on Wall Street.

Russiagaters Ramp Up Narrative Management As Mueller Report Nears

by Caitlin Johnstone, Caitlin Johnstone:

Both CNN and the Washington Post are reporting that Robert Mueller’s investigation into a possible conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government will be wrapping up as soon as next week. This report comes without a single American having been charged with any such conspiracy during the investigation up to this point, and we’re seeing a very revealing uptick in narrative management from the people who have been making a name for themselves promoting the Russiagate conspiracy theory.

Is China’s Social Credit System A Preview Of The Coming “Beast System”?

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Virtually everything that you do online and offline is being monitored, tracked or recorded by someone.  Could you imagine what life would be like if the government compiled all of that information into a giant database and used it to punish those that had engaged in politically-incorrect behavior?  Here in the United States, Internet censorship has escalated dramatically, but over in China the government is cracking down on a much wider array of online and offline activities.  If you fail to make a credit card payment, get into an argument in public or say the wrong thing on social media, you could suddenly find yourself restricted from conducting a whole host of normal economic activities.  The primary marketing slogan for this social credit system is “once discredited, everywhere restricted”

PayPal Bans Big League Reporter After He Exposed Them Funding Illegal Immigration

by Tom Pappert, Big League Politics:

The reporter was banned without explanation after reporting on PayPal’s morally ambiguous enforcement decisions.

PayPal banned Big League Politics reporter Luke Rohlfing from its platform mere months after he exposed the online payment processor’s funding of an illegal immigration group that has provided services to those that encourage illegal immigration.


by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Named Xin Xiaomeng, the perfectly-coiffed broadcaster is the newest addition to Xinhua’s team of existing male AI anchors. Xiaomeng was developed jointly by Xinhua and search engine company Sogou, and was shown off in a video sent out on social media on Thursday. Aside from a few seemingly stiff facial muscles, Xiaomeng is remarkably life-like, complete with hand adjustments during piece-to-cameras, and just enough on-cue blinking. The computer-generated journalist was modelled after real-life Xinhua news anchor Qu Meng, whose voice and image provided inspiration for developers.

FBI Official Admits To Infiltrating Trump Campaign – Just Don’t Call It Spying

from ZeroHedge:

A top FBI official admitted to Congressional investigators last year that the agency had contacts within the Trump campaign as part of operation “Crossfire Hurricane,” which sounds a lot like FBI “informant” Stefan Halper – a former Oxford University professor who was paid over $1 million by the Obama Department of Defense between 2012 and 2018, with nearly half of it surrounding the 2016 US election.

According to portions of transcripts published on Tuesday by the Epoch Times of a Aug. 31, 2018 deposition by Trisha Anderson, the FBI relied on sources who “already had campaign contacts” in order to surveil the Trump team.

Gateway Pundit Exclusive: Inside the AGT Juggarnaut – FBI/DOJ Coverup of Clinton Foundation and Russian/China Related Crimes – PART II

by Joe Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

A 2016 DOJ criminal investigation was suppressed and buried by the DOJ/FBI that involved a major NY Democratic power broker, Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

The investigation revolved around the illegal sale of US technology that was ITAR/EAR controlled and US State Department regulated.  This included advanced intelligence systems, surveillance, thermal cameras, sensors, radar, C4I and cyber warfare systems that were sold to Russia and China in the years before the 2016 election.

The Big Reason Why We Need A Conservative Version Of Facebook And Other Social Media Platforms

by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:

Do you remember what television news was like before the Fox News Channel came along?  Everybody pretty much said the same thing, and dissenting opinions on many of the most critical issues were generally not given any air time.  Of course Fox News is definitely still very much tied into the establishment, but at least they started providing a “Republican” point of view which was a stark contrast to the liberal propaganda that we were constantly being force fed by the other networks.  And then the social media era arrived, and suddenly everyone had a voice.  For years, we could say pretty much whatever we wanted on the major platforms, and we were generally left alone.

The Pension Crisis is Starting to Explode

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

At the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, working 40 hours per week, 52 weeks per year, yields an annual income of only $15,080. This is below the annual poverty line. It also reflects something that most people are unaware of — in Illinois, there are more than 19,000 retired teachers who get OVER $100,000 per year in their pension. According to the latest data, nearly 1.5 in ten federal employees are eligible to retire RIGHT NOW, and in five years the number will hit three in 10 or about 30%. The Housing and Urban Development Department in the federal government has the highest rate of employees eligible to retire right now of any major agency in government, which stands at a shocking 24%.
