Western Elites Decrying ‘Populism’ Betrays Fear of Democracy

by Finian Cunningham, Strategic Culture:

A new dreaded word has entered into official Western media speak: “Populism”. Political parties and governments which are deemed to be illegitimate are invariably labeled with the prefix “populist”. There is a vague implication that “populist” parties are imbued with disreputable politics of xenophobia, racism, nationalism and even fascism.

But who is doing the “deeming” here? It is establishment political parties and politicians who have the advantage of establishment news media organizations conveying their words and terminology.


by Geoffrey Grinder, Now The End Begins:

Former President Barack Obama is diving into politics once again by appearing in a video warning against the supposed damaging effects of partisan gerrymandering and calling on voters to politicians who support his idea of “fair” redistricting maps.

Ah, the dynamic duo of Barack Obama and Eric Holder have resurfaced. You remember them, right? They rose to infamy with the ‘Fast and Furious’ gun running scandal that sold guns to Mexican drug gangs, and resulted in the shooting death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. ‘Fast and Furious‘ was actually the very first known scandal of the Obama administration, but wouldn’t even be close to the last.

Remember! In 1988, Globalist Mouthpiece Predicted A Global Currency By 2018 And Warned Implementing The New System Would Unleash Massive Chaos And Civil Unrest

by Stefan Stanford, All News Pipeline:

In this new story from Brandon Smith over at Alt-Market.com titled “Globalists Are Telling Us Exactly What Disasters They’re Planning For The Economy“, Smith warns that while President Trump is busy trying to ‘make America great again‘, the ‘globalists‘ who long ago ‘hijacked‘ America still have very real concrete plans to complete the centralization of economic and political power into the hands of a select few people around the world.

As Smith reports, at the core of globalism “is the desire for total power, built upon full blown narcissism and sociopathy leading to naive notions that godhood, for them, is attainable” and as we’ve previously reported on ANP, with artificial intelligence combined with ‘transhumanism‘, many globalists really do believe they’ll live forever.

MUST WATCH: False Narratives at NATO – Trump vs the Cult

from Amazing Polly:

The False Narrative is the thing that Progressives, Gobalists & communists will go to the wall for. We are all suffering from their delusional, thoughtless, divisive psy op.


Failure of Supreme Court Opinions

from BATR:

Now that Brett Kavanaugh has been selected by President Trump to be the next Supreme Court Justice, the gladiator games of the confirmation process begins. Much of the attention will focus on the bitter hysteria that the Never Trump lunatics exhibit as they regress even further into denial. Those supporters who demand a Living Constitution are in a panic. They see the gains they have made over decades are fading with a court of Originalists and fear that Textualism will become the standard for the Supreme Court. The self-proclaimed enlightened zealots contend they are social justice warriors. In actuality they protect the corrupt institutions, practices and policies that progressives profess they oppose.

Venezuela’s Socialist Hyperinflation Turned People Back To Barter System

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

In the wake of socialist Venezuela’s massive hyperinflation, citizens have returned to the original monetary system in order to survive.  The barter system is now prevalent in the collapsed economy of the authoritarian dictator, Nicolas Maduro.

Barter is one of the best ways to trade goods, considering its almost impossible to tax those transactions and since money in Venezuela is as difficult to come by as food and medicine, that’s now the preferred method of trading goods and services. Women in Venezuela have been turning to prostitution and asking for payment in food instead of cash for a while now, and as the regime tightens its grip on the private sector, more will have to turn to trade to survive.

Trump’s Devastating Trade War Weapons

by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:

The news last week was dominated by breathless headlines about the new trade war between the U.S. and China. But this trade war has been brewing for years and came as no surprise to readers of my newsletter, Project Prophesy. In fact, the new trade war is simply a continuation of the currency wars that began in 2010.

I’ve warned for over a year that President Trump’s threats of tariffs should be taken seriously, while most of Wall Street discounted Trump’s talk as mere bluster. Now the trade wars are here as we expected, and they will get much worse before they are resolved.

Will AI “Change the World” Or Simply Boost Profits?

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

The real battle isn’t between a cartoonish vision or a dystopian nightmare–it’s between decentralized ownership and control of these technologies and centralized ownership and control.

The hype about artificial intelligence (AI) and its cousins Big Data and Machine Learning is ubiquitous, and largely unexamined. AI is going to change the world by freeing humankind from most of its labors, etc. etc. etc.

Let’s start by asking: who owns all this AI? This raises two other questions:who benefits as “software eats the world” (to use Marc Andreesen’s pithy phrase), and to what purpose is all this technology being applied?

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Residents first thought police presence was at their apartment building in New York because of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, but that turned out not to be the case as it was discovered that a woman’s body was found in the building’s trash compactor in Manhattan’s Union Square.
