Power Elites Launches Civil War Against Trump

by BATR, via Market Oracle:

What you are witnessing is a full court press to remove Donald Trump from the Presidency. The endless dribble from every corner of the gate keeping controlled media, the careerist bipartisan hacks, the diseased swamp ridden bureaucrat rats and the cowards who wave the flag of the establishment globalist order, all have banned together to take out the America First agenda. Trump was elected by populist discontent, but is now being betrayed by every faction who fears meaningful change in a corrupt political system that rules over the common man. Make no mistake about the stakes. A forced resignation, a contrived impeachment or an assassination for all to see are now in play. The establishment will not settle for anything less. The people be damned, it is time to show just who rules the United States.

Any sane person with a healthy constitution cannot watch ANY of the reporting about the staged Charlottesville confrontation. The Orwellian newspeak that echoes the disinformation that White Supremacists composed the Unite the Right rally at Emancipation Park is pure malicious hogwash. The ACLU and the Rutherford Institute issued a joint letter to protect the First Amendment rights of these activists. The U.S. District Court of Western Virginia ruled in favor of a temporary injunction to allow the rally to be permitted.

The only narrative that is allowed to permeate the collective consciousness of the “PC” culture is that the Black Lives Matter and their social warrior confederates where simply demonstrating against the hate embodied in white Christian traditionalists. Upon this monumental distortion of reality, a country in conflict is supposed to mobilize in support of the progressive left and condemn anyone who opposes their rewriting of history.

Folks, the plain simple truth is that the blame for violence wholly resides in the bought and paid for anarchist thugs who draws their own tangible bigotry from the Soros’ check book. Get real. The actual racists populate the loony ANTIFA left. Their devotion to Marxist doctrine may not be understood by the mentally maladjusted, but the elitist manipulators orchestrate their fantasy legions of malcontents to bully, club or burn down any opposition to their brave new world. The identity politics dogma demands that no other conviction is allowed and hostility towards anyone on the right is the cardinal doctrine.

The New Nationalist presents a position that may well be banned from the internet in the near future so watch the videos while they are still available.

“To be clear- TNN is sanity nationalist not white nationalist. Sanity nationalists are wide awake about anti-white slurs and won’t stand for it. We hate the insane. We hate untermensch. We love ubermensch. Sanity nationalists are pro-white in the sense of being uplifting and protective- but untermensch are excluded.

However at this stage there are many whites in America who are hardly supreme or high culture. In fact they need to be caged off and segregated into their own Ghost Ship satanic hell away from the sane. There they can conduct crocodile tear charity scams while their world burns down around them. The whites shown in these now commonplace videos are far from making the sanity cut at this point. Yes there is also a brood of insane black enemies and untermensch, but what to do with the “Insane White Question”? This untermensch will be the enemy for several generations to come. For some, there may be longer term hope in re-education, but the prognosis is grim.”

Now for those who cannot see past the drumbeat that the alt-right is the embodiment of all thinks hateful, heard the assessment from Mike Adams – WAKE UP, people! Alt-Left and Alt-Right are run by the same forces… the goal is “divide and conquer”.

“The goal of the Alt-Left and Alt-Right movements is to divide and conquer America through hatred and media lies that push false narratives for political gain.

As evidence of all this, note that Jason Kessler, the organizer of the Charlottesville event, actually worked for Obama and the Occupy movement just a few months ago. This man is a professional activist and social engineer who whips up big events on the world’s stage in order to achieve highly visible outcomes that can be seized by the mainstream media to condemn Trump supporters by labeling them all racists and “KKK.”

Much of the organized Left is funded either directly or indirectly by George Soros, the same radical left-wing operator who undercut freedom and liberty across numerous European countries. He’s the funding source behind ThinkProgress and 200+ other radical left-wing groups that constantly lie, defame and smear conservatives in order to sow hatred and division. Radical Alt-Right groups, similarly, are led by operatives who are very often working directly for the CIA and FBI. Nearly all the KKK racism you see on the news is contrived, elaborate theater carried out by these operatives.”

The puppet masters pulling the strings of civil unrest are intent upon destroying the America First movement by isolating the few genuine patriots who remain in the Trump administration.

With the departure of Stephen K. Bannon from the White House, the voice against the neocon and neolib skullduggery, along with the entrenched Obama holdovers is silenced. Ann Coulter blames media for Steve Bannon’s firing, but the true pressure operatives are the embedded government careerists, who views Trump’s campaign linguists as an existential threat to their ruling over the process of federal hegemony that enslaves all those deplorable citizens.

The totalitarian collectivist society is the only beneficiary of a social politically correct despotism. Even as Michael Savage Warns: Civil War Could Break Out If Trump Is Removed From Office, cites the obvious, most people relish their delusional ignorance as a sign of pride of inbred stupidity.

“So far it has appeared that if there is to be another civil war, it will likely be started by the Left. That has been made abundantly clear since Trump took office. The political fueled violence that we’ve seen on the streets of America this year has been initiated almost exclusively by the far left, and we hardly ever saw that kind of behavior from conservatives when the legislative and executive branches were run by liberals. They’ve clearly been the most aggressive and intolerant force in America for a long time, so they are the most likely to spark a war.”

The accurate difference between the intolerant alt-left mindless clones is that they are deep-rooted in group think, while the alt-right is populated by individualists endowed with independent thought. Facts do not exist, much less accepted by the extreme nihilists who preach their no hate drivel, while practicing the most intense discrimination against all things conservative found within Western Civilization.

Recollection of an honest representation of history is the enemy of the power brokers, who manage the social unrest so that the stated Trump agenda can be flushed down the crapper of their fecal matter multicultural society.

All the signs point to the demise of the Trump restructuring. However, the millions of disgruntled cohorts who voted against the comrades of the establishment will be faced with angry outrage if Trump is removed from office. Has Trump Already Been Indicted? Civil War Could Follow If Deep State Takes Out Duly Elected President sums up the consequences.

“If they are successful in bringing down this duly elected, constitutional president, as the Patribotics.blog suggests, the proverbial stuff is going to hit the fan. Trump supporters, Republicans, conservatives and even some Independents are going to see his coup as proof that all bets are off, that there is no legitimacy left in American government, and that all of “them” who comprise the Washington political establishment are the real enemies of freedom.”

President Trump is in a box and the walls are closing in. If he is crushed, it will be because he refused to fire, in mass; the back-stabbers he brought into his administration or the inherited conspirators that remained from previous regimes.

The pitiful response from the entire establishment is that they are following the communal pressure to abandon the Trump restoration program. What you are watching is the systematic disassembly of the popular will by the ruling elite.

MUST WATCH: TRUMP EXPOSES ANTIFA & CNN’s ENDLESS LIES

from #SeekingTheTruth:

“THEY SHOW UP IN THE HELMETS AND BLACK MASKS! ANTIFA!” President Trump speaks at Phoenix Rally Mocking Antifa and the Mainstream media.

Keiser Report: ‘Bitcoin’s going to be worth a trillion dollars soon’ (E1113)

from RT:

In this episode of the Keiser Report Max and Stacy discuss the Trump administration starting some trade wars – from renegotiating Nafta to looking at China’s treatment of ‘intellectual property’. They also discuss the trillions in unexploited mineral resources in North Korea. In the second half Max interviews Dan Collins of TheChinaMoneyReport.com to discuss the ‘Doklam Transgression’ and the ‘Line of Actual Control’. The media has largely ignored the confrontation between India and China but will they notice if a hot war breaks out?

Are We Fiddling While Rome Burns?

0

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

Solutions abound, but they require the retirement of obsolete systems that defend entrenched interests and soul-crushing inequalities.

It turns out Nero wasn’t fiddling as Rome burned–he was 60 km away at the time. Did Nero Really Fiddle While Rome Burned?

The story has become short-hand for making light of a catastrophe, either out of self-interest (one theory had Nero clearing a site he desired for a palace with the fire) or out of a mad detachment from reality.

Are we fiddling while Rome burns? I would say yes–because we’re not solving any of the structural problems that are dooming the status quo. Instead, we’re allowing a corrupt, corporate mainstream media to distract us with fake “Russians hacked our election” hysteria, false “cultural war” mania, and a laughably Orwellian frenzy over fake news which magically avoids mentioning the propaganda narrativespushed 24/7 by the mainstream media–narratives that are the acme of fake news.

The media is only half the problem, of course; the audience doesn’t want to hear about structural problems that can only be fixed by disrupting the status quo. If we don’t accept that the financial system we inhabit is imploding, maybe all the problems will go away.

The system is coughing up blood and we still want to believe it is “recovering” from a cold.

Here’s a short list of structural problems we should be tackling:

1. Soaring inequality and the institutionalization of economic privilege.Systemic economic privilege doesn’t exist in a vacuum–it’s enforced by a centralized hierarchy, a dynamic I describe in my book Inequality and the Collapse of Privilege. Systemic inequality doesn’t just undermine the economy–it also undermines the social and political orders.

2. The central state (government) has one default setting: endless expansion into every nook and cranny of daily life. There are no mechanisms for contraction and no institutional memory of government reducing its control of every aspect of life.

As I explain in my book Resistance, Revolution, Liberation: A Model for Positive Change, this concentration of power attracts concentrations of wealth which then buy the machinery of governance: democracy is reduced to an auction that excludes the bottom 99.9{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}.

3. Finance has detached from the real-world economy, distorting every function via financialization, which concentrates income and wealth in the hands of the few. As I have often explained in the blog (and in my book Why Our Status Quo Failed and Is Beyond Reform), if we don’t change the way we create and distribute credit-money, we change nothing.

4. Our educational system is obsolete but the the current system is incapable of transformation for structural reasons. These include high sunk costs, bureaucratic sclerosis, self-serving fiefdoms that fear disruption of their gravy trains, a lack of understanding of the emerging economy, a dysfunctional centralized hierarchy and the state-funded exploitive machinery of student-loan debt.

I explain all this and present a model that would cut costs by 90{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} in my book The Nearly Free University and the Emerging Economy.

5. The economy and thus our society (i.e. our mode of production) are changing beneath our feet in dramatic ways. Highly centralized hierarchies (government, corporations) are the wrong unit size and structure to manage this transformation to the benefit of all rather than to the benefit of the few.

I present a decentralized non-state, non-corporate, non-financialized model in my book A Radically Beneficial World: Automation, Technology & Creating Jobs for All.

For individuals navigating these disruptive forces, I wrote an overview guide to the emerging economy, Get a Job, Build a Real Career and Defy a Bewildering Economy.

Solutions abound, but they require the retirement of obsolete systems that defend entrenched interests and soul-crushing inequalities. The world is changing rapidly, and centralized systems that worked well in the past are failing because they are optimized for a world that no longer exists.

Belt & Road and Precious Metals – Jeff Nielson

by Jeff Nielson, Sprott Money:

China’s “Belt and Road Initiative” is the transformational economic strategy of the 21 st century. PricewaterhouseCoopers summarized the plan in February 2016:

The geographical area that is potentially covered by the B&R initiative is vast. In its current shape, the initiative has close to 65 countries somehow connected, covering more than half of the world’s population (c. 4.4 billion), around 30{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the global economy and a total infrastructure investment need of around US$5 trillion. 

Some commentators have coined the term ‘Chinese Marshall Plan’ to describe the B&R initiative, a reference to the Marshall Recovery Programme which focused on revitalising Western Europe after the end of the Second World War with the leadership and funding of the US. However, the comparison is not an accurate one, in the sense that China is putting a very clear emphasis on the inclusiveness and ‘win-win’ character of its B&R initiative. Where the original Marshall plan deliberately excluded some countries from participation and put hefty conditions on others, China is making clear that all countries along the way are welcomed to join, without B&R attaching additional conditions.

 

In economic terms; the BRI will help to re-energize economies representing more than half of the world’s population – with virtually none of that total coming from the Western bloc. In recent years, the economies of the Rest of the World have been struggling to equal their rate of growth from the previous decade.

Much of the reason for this malaise has been dealt with in previous commentaries: Western economic terrorism . To be more specific it has been the currency manipulation of the financial crime syndicate known as the One Bank.

The Big Bank tentacles of the One Bank have been caught (and convicted) of manipulating all of the world’s currencies . Western currencies are manipulated higher (especially the USD), all other currencies are manipulated lower.

A weakened currency is like a tax on the entire economy: every unit of currency provides steadily diminishing purchasing power, just like increasing taxes. A severely weakened currency can result in economic devastation, as was seen with Russia during the two years where it was the primary target of such terrorism.

For this reason, the geopolitical consequences of the BRI are equally important. The plan represents the final plank in China’s strategy to free itself (and many of its friends/neighbours) from Western economic hegemony.

China’s currency, the renminbi, has already been positioned to replace the USD was reserve currency, although China insists it envisions a world with no (single) reserve currency. Parallel to this, its own economy is rapidly replacing the U.S. as the world’s dominant economy.

However, facing Western animosity and economic harassment, China still didn’t see itself and the Rest of the World as being strong enough to cast off their Western shackles. The BRI is the engine which will provide the economic clout as well as the political and economic unity necessary to free the world from the West’s chokehold.

What does any of this have to do with precious metals? Supply and demand.

On numerous occasions, readers have been presented with the economic fundamentals which favor gold and silver as asset classes. Both sectors have had long-term supply deficits and are currently priced well below what is necessary to sustain the sector over the long term.

Indeed, even when the price of silver briefly soared above $40/oz USD, the silver mining sector was just beginning to regain a semblance of health. Regular readers know that the price of silver was driven to a 600-year low ( in real dollars ) during the 1990’s, bottoming below $4/oz USD. More than 90{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of the world’s silver mines were bankrupted and the industry has never recovered.

Readers are also familiar with the monetary fundamentals of precious metals. With most of the world’s fiat currencies debauched to near(?) worthlessness, monetary fundamentals alone dictate that gold and silver prices should be many multiples of current levels.

But readers have seen these fundamentals recited for years – during which time the One Bank has maintained an absolute chokehold over gold and silver prices. That chokehold has been maintained even as the supply deficit in the two markets has persisted.

Clearly monetary fundamentals and mining fundamentals alone have not been sufficient to break that chokehold. The only factor that can (and will) guarantee the shattering of the criminal manipulation is demand for physical metal on a level necessary to induce inventory default.

The “breaking” of the bankers’ fraudulent paper markets for gold and silver equates to an end to this crime syndicate’s manipulation. When (finally) stockpiles are exhausted, physical demand will dictate prices . This is where the BRI has relevance to precious metals markets.

Western populations have been brainwashed to the point where the vast majority of these populations no longer comprehend precious metal’s value as a “hedge against inflation” (serial banking crime) and a general safe haven. Simultaneously, Western economies have been gutted by the economic crimes of the One Bank and the mismanagement of our puppet governments.

We cannot count on any strength in demand for gold and silver originating out of the West, even when these economies begin their (imminent) final Death Spiral. Even with the anemic level of current mine supply, the level of demand necessary to put an end to the bankers’ chokehold on these markets must originate in the Rest of the World.

The BRI is the economic vehicle which ensures a long-term level of economic growth & demand necessary to ensure that the supply deficits in gold and silver markets remain in place. Very likely those deficits will widen further. Eastern populations have not been brainwashed away from humanity’s natural affinity for precious metals.

China and India are the twin pillars of precious metals demand, with Russia exerting secondary importance with respect to its own, voracious demand for gold. It is vital that these nations retain the economic vitality to maintain that demand. It is also necessary for other nations to supplement that demand with robust buying within their own populations.

Belt & Road.

Putting aside the economic activity generated by the $5 trillion in infrastructure investment, that infrastructure represents economic independence from the West. China (and to a lesser extent, Russia) have created parallel financial and administrative institutions to replace the financial hegemony of the IMF and World Bank.

The BRI creates the physical infrastructure to compliment this financial infrastructure. Together, it represents a liberation strategy. Not only do China and the Rest of the World no longer need the West, with the economic bloc being created they can simply exclude the West – if these puppet governments (and the One Bank itself) refuse to “play nice”.

The open interest in gold fell to 505,829 contracts despite gold being up $5.05 yesterday. Silver’s OI continues to drop (tonight:188,627) as the bankers are looking over their shoulder at London and witnessing huge shortages of physical metal plus a severe backwardation. I wrote the following yesterday:  “We are now entering options expiry week and you know that gold and silver will be whacked until August 31.2017 (a week this Thursday). The crooks will do anything to keep gold below $1300.00 and silver below $17.10”

The bankers started their whacking so our underwriting banks steal from the public at large.

Let us have a look at the data for today

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

In silver, the total open interest SURPRISINGLY FELL by 204 contracts from 188,831 down to 188,627 with THE FLAT PRICE THAT SILVER UNDERTOOK WITH  YESTERDAY’S TRADING (DOWN 0 CENTS) . THE LOSS IN OI ALSO CONTRASTS COMPLETELY TO THE LOSS IN GOLD OI DESPITE GOLD’S RISE IN PRICE YESTERDAY. WE MAY BE EXPERIENCING BANKER CAPITULATION IN BOTH GOLD AND SILVER NOW. IN SILVER AGAIN, THE BANKERS ARE LOATHE TO SUPPLY NEW PAPER.  NEWBIE LONGS JUST TRADED CONTRACTS WITH OLDER SPECS.

RESULT: A SLIGHTLY LOWER OI WITH NO GAIN IN PRICE.

 In ounces, the OI is still represented by just UNDER 1 BILLION oz i.e.  0.944 BILLION TO BE EXACT or 135{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of annual global silver production (ex Russia & ex China).

FOR THE NEW FRONT MAY MONTH/ THEY FILED: 14 NOTICE(S) FOR 70,000OZ OF SILVER

In gold, the open interest FELL BY ONLY 826 CONTRACTS DESPITE THE RISE  in price of gold ($5.05 GAIN ON MONDAY .). The new OI for the gold complex rests at 505,829. THE LOSS IN OPEN INTEREST DESPITE THE GAIN IN PRICE MAY MEAN THAT THE BANKERS ARE NOW BEGINNING TO FEEL PAIN IN GOLD. WE WILL HAVE TO SEE MORE DAYS LIKE THIS TO SEE IF A PATTERN DEVELOPS. THE BANKERS DID NOT SUPPLY MUCH OF THE SHORT PAPER AND NEWBIE LONGS DROVE UP THE PRICE WITH SELLING COMING FROM OLDER LONGS. TODAY, THE BANKERS ORCHESTRATED A RAID ON GOLD AND SILVER HOPING TO SEE BOTH GOLD AND SILVER LEAVES FALL FROM THEIR RESPECTIVE TREES.

Result: A LOSS IN OI with GOOD GAIN IN PRICE IN GOLD.

9/11 was planned in Tel Aviv and Washington, not in Kabul: Scholar

from PressTV:

The September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were not planned and directed from Afghanistan, as US President Donald Trump has claimed; rather, they were orchestrated by certain elements in Washington, DC and Tel Aviv, says Dr. Kevin Barrett, an American academic who has been studying the events of 9/11 since late 2003.

“[The] Zionist coup d’etat of 9/11 was done by the combination of Israelis and neo-conservative Americans along with hard-line right-wingers in the American military and the intelligence establishment who pulled off this coup d’etat in America,” Dr. Barrett said.

Dr. Barrett, a founding member of the Scientific Panel for the Investigation of 9/11, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on a statement Trump made on Monday during his policy speech about Afghanistan.

Speaking from Fort Myer, Virginia, Trump unveiled his much-anticipated agenda for Afghanistan.

During his speech, Trump said, “The consequences of a rapid exit [from Afghanistan] are both predictable and unacceptable. 9/11, the worst terrorist attack in our history, was planned and directed from Afghanistan because that country was ruled by a government that gave comfort and shelter to terrorists. A hasty withdrawal would create a vacuum that terrorists, including ISIS and al Qaeda, would instantly fill, just as happened before September 11th.”

‘Trump sending US to graveyard of empires’

“Donald Trump has just committed the United States to an endless quagmire in Afghanistan — the graveyard of empires. And Trump’s rationale is the same one that has been in force for the past sixteen years which is that Afghanistan was somehow responsible for the attacks on New York and Washington on September 11, 2001,” Dr. Barrett said.

“It is amazing how this gift of 9/11 keeps on giving. And Trump is the last person one would have normally expected to do this,” he stated.

“When Trump was running for office, he was skeptical about foreign wars, open-ended engagements. He recognized that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have destroyed America’s economy and infrastructure,” he said.

‘Trump a 9/11 skeptic’

“And what’s more, Trump is also a 9/11 skeptic. On September 11th itself Trump immediately said that there must have been explosives used. He said there is no way that a plane could possibly take down these buildings. And he was right, as Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth have proven. Thousands of architects and engineers are on record having put their careers and livelihoods and reputations on the line to state that what happened to the three skyscrapers, including the Building 7, on 9/11, was clearly controlled demolition” Dr. Barrett said.

“So the official narratives of hijacking by people who were supposedly being commanded by a guy on dialysis in a cave in Afghanistan are utterly ludicrous and have been fully disproven on hundreds and hundreds of grounds,” he stated.

“And now Donald Trump, who has expressed skepticism about all of this in the past, and who drove (Jeb) Bush out of the presidential nomination by attacking (George W.) Bush, his brother, as the likely culprit or at least someone who is responsible for 9/11—now Trump who we all hoped might be an ‘irresponsible’ truth teller, that is, someone who would tell the incredibly subversive truth about what has really happened to America since the false flag attack of September 11th—all those hopes are now dashed,” he noted.

‘Trump under control of Deep State’

Dr. Barrett said now “Trump is clearly under the control of the elements of the Deep State that murdered three thousand Americans in an act of high treason on September 11, 2001.”

“So those of us who care about the truth and care about the core values that made America great in the first place are now going to have to view Trump as well as the rest of the American leadership as treasonous enemies,” he concluded.

Economic Consequences from Refugee Invasion

from BATR.org:

The dual peril of unfettered migration into Europe and the United States has a different complexion of invaders, but both suffer an appalling economic aftermath. However, the flood gates from the Middle East and Africa “so called” refugees are destined to overcome and hasten the breakup of the European Union. Just note the impact from not defending the borders of Europe, both placing terminal pressure on the economies and finances of EU countries, but also from the social dissolution of Western societies.

Announcement that the EU to assess economic impact of migrant crisis, reveals the hidden agenda behind allowing the invasion from the hordes.

“Luxembourg Finance Minister Pierre Gramegna said Friday the EU’s executive Commission will “analyze whether the refugee crisis can be considered an extraordinary circumstance” under rules the bloc has to ensure sound public finances.

Gramegna also said the European Investment Bank also stands ready to quickly help countries, regions and cities that need financial help to deal with the arrival of migrants.”

Sure there will be funds made available to spread out the burdensome costs from this influx of cultural aliens, but what is the ultimate goal?

The corporatists of the international finance banksters are hell bent on burying the remains of European civilization. The blueprint underpinning the fall of the West is alluded to in a Guardian article, This refugee crisis is too big for Europe to handle – its institutions are broken.

“The EU’s leaders can muddle along with broken institutions, flouted laws, flailing border police. Or they can think it through. The OECD’s central projection is that, to stand a chance of avoiding stagnation, the EU’s workforce will have to add 50 million more people through migration by 2060 (a similar number is needed in the US). The Paris-based think tank says if that doesn’t happen, it is a “significant downside risk” to growth. What this means should be spelled out, because no politician has bothered to do so: to avoid economic stagnation in the long term, Europe needs migrants.

Consent for inward economic migration is fragile and falling – as evidenced by the sudden rush by politicians and tabloids to reclassify the Syrian exodus as a special case. Even if populist resistance to migration stops short of fascism, and even if anti-migration parties are disempowered by the electoral system, their existence highlights a failing consensus. And that is, in turn, founded on economic failure. The Eurozone has produced an arc of stagnation and discontent along its southern border. There is mass unemployment in the very countries that have become the first port of call for migrants and refugees.”

The ridiculous supposition that an influx of migrates is needed to resolve the unemployment problem, testifies to the upside down thinking that the global elites are selling to a gullible public.

This arrogant and absurd argument is refined by the chief criminal organization, Goldman Explains Why Europe’s Refugee Crisis Is Actually A Blessing.

“The rising concerns on ageing have unsurprisingly been accompanied by more accommodative policies on immigration; the number of countries with stated plans to grow their populations via immigration has gone up to 22 as of 2013, from 10 in 2010 (note that immigrants also tend to have higher fertility rates).

But for many countries, people inflows are only part of the solution. In order to maintain current levels of retirees/working age population ratios in 2025, immigration rates in Western Europe need to be 7x-8x higher than current run rate (based on UN estimates), while in Japan and Korea, the requirement goes up to a highly improbable 26x and 58x current levels.”

If the socialism nirvana is short on procreation, maybe the answer is for a 21th century version of Lebensborn “Spring of Life” variation. “Lebensborn was designed to halt the high rate of abortions in Germany which rose as high as 800,000 a year in the inter-war years because of a chronic shortage of men to marry after World War I.”

Analyze the effects of overrunning millions of foreigners residing in European countries competing for work or tapping into a social welfare system. The economic price from driving down wages only benefits the globalists. When the globe is on the verge of a worldwide depression, does anyone with a sane mind really believe that adding huge numbers of unskilled workers to struggling economies will achieve prosperity?  

America has suffered for decades from the illegal aliens that trespass into out country. Just examine the damage to our demographics from the anchor baby malady.

Europe is even less equipped to accommodate the physical warehousing of unwanted intruders. If the world was so consumed by humanitarian altruism, why not set up a one way eastern direction silk road and send all these refugees to China to help occupy all those housing units in Chinese ghost cities?

Former U.S. Attorney On Awan Indictment: “There Is Something Very Strange Going On Here”

0

from Zero Hedge:

We’ve written frequently over the past couple of months about the litany of unanswered questions surrounding the mysterious case of Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s (DWS) IT staffers.  Why did DWS seemingly threaten the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with “consequences” for holding equipment that was confiscated as part of an ongoing legal investigation?  Why did DWS keep Awan on her taxpayer funded payroll all the way up until the day he was arrested by the FBI at Dulles airport while trying to flee the country to Pakistan?  What, if anything, does the Awan family know about the DNC hacks that may have caused DWS to act in this way?

Now, Andrew McCarthy III, the former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York who led the prosecution against Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, says there is “something very strange” about the recent indictment filed against Imran Awan and his wife Hina Alvi in the District of Columbia.

In a National Review article, McCarthy points out that it’s not what’s in the indictment that is necessarily surprising but rather what is seemingly intentionally omitted.  For instance, McCarthy points out that “the indictment appears to go out of its way not to mention” that Imran was apprehended while in the process of fleeing the country, a fact that would seem to be the best evidence available to prove the fraud charges.

 

Let’s say you’re a prosecutor in Washington. You are investigating a husband and wife, naturalized Americans, who you believe have scammed a federal credit union out of nearly $300,000. You catch them in several false statements about their qualifications for a credit line and their intended use of the money. The strongest part of your case, though, involves the schemers’ transferring the loot to their native Pakistan.

So . . . what’s the best evidence you could possibly have, the slam-dunk proof that their goal was to steal the money and never look back? That’s easy: One after the other, the wife and husband pulled up stakes and tried to high-tail it to Pakistan after they’d wired the funds there — the wife successfully fleeing, the husband nabbed as he was about to board his flight.

Well, here’s a peculiar thing about the Justice Department’s indictment of Imran Awan and Hina Alvi, the alleged fraudster couple who doubled as IT wizzes for Debbie Wasserman Schultz and many other congressional Democrats: There’s not a word in it about flight to Pakistan. The indictment undertakes to describe in detail four counts of bank-fraud conspiracy, false statements on credit applications, and unlawful monetary transactions, yet leaves out the most damning evidence of guilt.

In fact, the indictment appears to go out of its way not to mention it.

Why would prosecutors leave that out of their indictment? Why give Awan’s defense a basis to claim that, since the indictment does not allege anything about flight to Pakistan, the court should bar any mention of it during the trial? In fact, quite apart from the manifest case-related reasons to plead instances of flight, a competent prosecutor would have included them in the indictment simply to underscore that Awan is a flight risk who should have onerous bail conditions or even be detained pretrial.

 

Then there is the case of Imran’s wife, Hina Alvi.  When she fled the country back in March she was detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents with over $12,000 cash in her luggage, technically a crime by itself if not properly disclosed, but was allowed by the FBI to leave the country despite having been under investigation for months. 

We must also ask, again: Why did the FBI allow Alvi to flee? Before she boarded her March 5 flight to Qatar (en route to Pakistan), agents briefly detained her. U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents had already searched her baggage and found $12,400 in cash. As I have pointed out, it is a felony to move more than $10,000 in U.S. currency out of the country unless one completes the required government report (see sections 5316 and 5322 of Title 31, U.S. Code). There was no indication that she did so in the complaint affidavit submitted to the court when Awan was arrested last month (see FBI complaint affidavit, pages 8–9).

 

By the time Alvi fled, the Awans had been under investigation by various federal agencies for at least three months. The FBI was sufficiently attuned to the Awans’ criminality that its agents went to the trouble of chasing Alvi to the airport. If she didn’t fill out the required form, she should have been arrested for the currency violation. Is it possible that, rather than arresting her, federal agents instructed her to complete the form on the spot? One would hope not, but even in such an unlikely event, Alvi would undoubtedly have made false statements about the provenance of the cash. That would also have been a felony, providing more grounds for her arrest. Why let her go, especially when, as its agent told the court in the aforementioned affidavit, the FBI “does not believe that ALVI has any intention to return to the United States”?

And then there is just the continued secrecy surrounding the case.  Why did the U.S. Attorney’s office decide against filing a press release in a case that has garnered significant national attention?  Why was the case filed in a district where DWS’s brother has been an assistant U.S. attorney for many years?

John Rubino – Disappearing Middle Explains Charlottesville

by Kery Lutz, Financial Survival Network:

John Rubino joined us today. His take is that as the middle class disappears so does the middle point in our political debate, thereby leaving just the extremes. Obviously not a good thing. But attempting to wipeout or forget about our history is not the way to solve our problems. Rather history has proven to be the best teacher and an angry task master. Get ready for those who would attempt to rewrite or obliterate it. COT – Commitment of traders report has turned very bearish towards precious metals. This measure has worked continually over the past 10 years and shows no signs of quitting now. Will it be a down quarter for precious metals?

Civil War and the Threat of Assassination Must be Stopped, Now, with the New Silk Road, Development and Job Creation

0

from LaRouche PAC:

The Russiagate effort to depose President Trump is close to dead. Two leaders of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS), Ray McGovern and William Binney, spoke at a LaRouchePAC forum in Manhattan, Saturday, reviewing their forensic proof that there was no hack of the DNC computers, and that corrupt Obama intelligence officials had fabricated evidence to point at Russia, to stop Trump’s effort to bring the US and Russia and China together for peace.

But the coup-plotters have not given up — they have moved on to race-bait the President, using provocateurs, on both sides, and using the media, to stir up racial hatred, also on both sides, creating the potential for civil war and an environment conducive to a “lone assassin” hit on the President.

The fact that President Trump was absolutely right in his declaration that there were violent provocateurs on both sides of the Charlottesville disaster, is becoming more and more clear by the day. The attempt to reproduce the Charlottesville chaos in Boston, on Saturday, resulted only in a handful of conservatives marching for free speech, being met by about 10,000 “anti-nazi” and “anti-fascist” counter demonstrators. The police did their job, keeping the two sides separated (not as in Charlottesville), but there were 33 arrests of violent “antifa” and “Black Lives Matter” militants who challenged the police. Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said there were three categories on the street: “Those who came out for the rally, those who came to protest it, and those who wanted to start some trouble.”

Former UN Ambassador and civil rights leader Andrew Young cut through the maze of lies in an NBC interview Sunday:”Most of the issues that we’re dealing with now are related to poverty. But we still want to put everything in a racial context,” Amb. Young said.

“The reason I feel uncomfortable condemning the Klan types is, they are almost the poorest of the poor. They are the forgotten Americans. And, they have been used and abused and neglected. Instead of giving them affordable health care, they give them black lung jobs…. Our job [in the Civil Rights Movement] was not to put down white people. Our job was to lift everybody up together, so that we would learn to live together as brothers and sisters rather than perish together as fools.”

Helga Zepp-LaRouche agreed that Amb. Young had identified the problem, but insisted that he, and all well-meaning people, must also identify the solution, to bring about the development and the job creation he calls for in the only way possible — to join with the LaRouche movement effort to get President Trump to proceed with his intention to join in the Belt and Road Initiative created by China, now, and implement LaRouche’s Four Laws — Glass Steagall, National Banking, Hamiltonian federal credit creation, and a science policy centered on crash programs for space exploration and fusion power. There are increasing numbers of Democrats who reject Russia-gate, who reject the controlled “gang-counter gang” push for civil war, and who will join with Trump supporters to demand such real development as the only solution. This is the time for action.

Media Remains Silent on Sen. McCain’s KKK Ancestry and How He Put Neo-Nazis in Power in Ukraine

0

by Rachel Blevins, The Free Thought Project:

The mainstream media applauded John McCain for his criticism of President Trump, but it left out a few key elements of his history with Neo-Nazis.

When former Republican Presidential Nominee John McCain is mentioned in the media, he is typically painted in a good light—an elderly senator and war hero battling brain cancer who has devoted the rest of his life to fighting for government healthcare and the removal of a tyrannical dictator in Syria.

McCain added even more fuel to his fire on Tuesday when he joined the mainstream media in condemning President Trump for his response to violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia. There’s no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate & bigotry,” McCain wrote on Twitter. “The President of the United States should say so.”

McCain’s words were quoted by a number of mainstream outlets, from CNBC to The Hill, which reportedthat the Arizona Senator was simply “pressing President Trump to make clear that there is not a ‘moral equivalency’ between white nationalists and the counterdemonstrators that turned out in Charlottesville.”

However, there are a few major issues with McCain’s statement. Many of the counterdemonstrators, or “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry,” as McCain called them, were affiliated with the group “Antifa.” Although the group’s name stands for “Anti-Fascist,” some of its members do the opposite, and the method of “seeking peace through violence” has been evident at a number of violent rallies and protests across the U.S. following Trump’s inauguration in January.

There is also another factor that should be taken into account as McCain attempts to take the moral high ground and the media cheers him on—his family history. According to a documentary called “Finding Your Roots” from Weta Interactive Media, not only does his family have connections to “hate and bigotry,” McCain’s great-great-grandfather served under the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

“We then discovered that his Calvary unit had been tapped for a mission by none other than General Nathan Bedford Forrest, a brilliant, but brutal commander, often remembered for what he did after the war as the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan,” Historian Henry Louis Gates, Jr. said.
