From the Ashes of Notre Dame de Paris

0

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

Two days ago the world witnessed, dumbstruck, the terrible fire which destroyed significant portions of the Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral, one of humanity’s great cultural treasures. The occasion unleashed an unformed sentiment of deep loss across the planet, a sense based on the universal character of Mankind which transcends all secondary differences of space and time.

Its import was best captured by Jacques Cheminade, former French presidential candidate and long-time friend and associate of the American statesman Lyndon LaRouche, who stated:

After a $354 Billion U.S. Bailout, Germany’s Deutsche Bank Still Has $49 Trillion in Derivatives

0

by Pam Martens and Russ Martens, Wall St On Parade:

On July 21, 2011, when the GAO released its audit of the Federal Reserve’s secret $16.1 trillion in bank loans during the financial crisis, a foreign bank ranked number 9 on the list of the largest borrowers. The loans went not just to the largest banks on Wall Street but to foreign derivative counterparties to the Wall Street banks. The foreign bank that ranked 9 on the list of the largest borrowers was Germany’s largest bank, Deutsche Bank, which took $354 billion in revolving loans from the U.S. Federal Reserve.

Gun Control Advocates Want Banks to Refuse Service to Gun Companies

0

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Anti-gun activists and politicians are doing everything they can to effectively disarm the public.

Already this year, extreme and unconstitutional gun control measures have been proposed at the state and federal levels. There has been a lot of pushback, thankfully: a growing number of counties (and even some states) have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries and are refusing to enforce gun-control laws that infringe on the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Sheriffs in WashingtonColorado, and New Mexico have publicly stated they will refuse to enforce new gun control legislation – and some are even willing to be jailed for their defiance.

It’s Only April, And U.S. Retailers Have Already Closed More Stores Than They Did ALL Of Last Year

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

If the U.S. economy is in good shape, why have retailers already shuttered more stores than they did in all of 2018?  Not only that, we are also on pace to absolutely shatter the all-time record for store closures in a single year by more than 50 percent.  Yes, Internet commerce is growing, but the Internet has been around for several decades now.  It isn’t as if this threat just suddenly materialized.  As Internet commerce continues to slowly expand, we would expect to see a steady drip of brick and mortar stores close, but instead what we are witnessing is an avalanche.  If the U.S. economy really was “booming”, this wouldn’t be happening.  But if the U.S. economy was heading into a recession, this is precisely what we would expect to see.

The Persecution of Julian Assange Sends Some Alarming Signals

by James ONeill, New Eastern Outlook:

The arrest of Julian Assange by British police on 11 April 2019 raises a number of troubling questions. It naturally enough provoked the outrage of Assange’s supporters; a blandly noncommittal comment by the Australian Minister of Foreign Affairs (“appropriate consular assistance”); and a wilful disregard of the many significant issues by the mainstream media who may, ironically, end up as the major victims of the pursuit of Assange by the UK and US authorities.

Assange was a founder of the Wikileaks organisation, which in its relatively brief life had exposed a significant number of documents that proved exceedingly embarrassing for the United States government. Perhaps the most infamous was a military video “Collateral Damage” released by Wikileaks in 2007. It showed US soldiers celebrating the murder of Iraqi civilians and including the murder of two Reuter’s reporters.

The Weakening Of Earth’s Magnetic Field Has Greatly Accelerated, And That Could Have Apocalyptic Implications For All Of Us

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Earth’s magnetic field is getting significantly weaker, the magnetic north pole is shifting at an accelerating pace, and scientists readily admit that a sudden pole shift could potentially cause “trillions of dollars” in damage.  Today, most of us take the protection provided by Earth’s magnetic field completely for granted.  It is essentially a colossal force field which surrounds our planet and makes life possible.  And even with such protection, a giant solar storm could still potentially hit our planet and completely fry our power grid.  But as our magnetic field continues to get weaker and weaker, even much smaller solar storms will have the potential to be cataclysmic.  And once the magnetic field gets weak enough, we will be facing much bigger problems.  As you will see below, if enough solar radiation starts reaching our planet none of us will survive.

  • Wikileaks founder dragged out of Ecuadorian Embassy in handcuffs by a large group of police officers today

  • Ecuador said its decision came after ‘repeated violations to international conventions and daily-life protocols’

William Barr Is the Democrats’ Worst Nightmare

0

from True Pundit:

Though they were excruciatingly obnoxious to William Barr at Tuesday’s House Appropriations subcommittee hearing, Democrats would be well-advised to lay off the attorney general, maybe even treat him with kid gloves, because he holds a good deal of the future of their party in his hands. In fact, he is positioned to make that party bleed as perhaps no one in history. And it only makes it worse that he is clearly such a straight shooter.

Monsanto Has Been Knowingly Lying About the Safety Of Roundup In Their Ads For Decades

0

by Richard Enos, Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:In 1996, Monsanto was sued by the New York Attorney General based on its false and misleading advertising of Roundup products. Monsanto lost and agreed to stop, but to date they have not stopped those practices anywhere other than New York State.
  • Reflect On:How can we use the egregious assault on our health and well-being at the hands of corporations like Bayer-Monsanto to catalyze our awakening and our motivation to build the type of world we would most prefer to live in?

Ted Siedle: The Greatest Retirement Crisis In The History Of The World

0

by Adam Taggart, Peak Prosperity:

The pension crisis is even worse than we imagine

We are on the precipice of the greatest retirement crisis in the history of the world. And that makes perfect sense because, first of all, we have the largest elderly population in the history of the world.

Just focusing on the United States: our elderly are woefully unprepared to retire. And in the decades to come we will witness millions of elderly American’s, Baby Boomers and others, slipping into poverty. ‘Too frail to work, too poor to retire’ will become the new normal for many elderly Americans.”

Trump Cares About Two Things – Empire and the Stock Market

by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:

Though not surprising, it’s nevertheless extraordinary to watch Donald Trump publicly and shamelessly morph into a George W. Bush era neocon when it comes to foreign policy, and a CNBC stock market cheerleader when it comes to the economy. Just like Barack Obama before him, Trump talked a good populist game on two issues of monumental importance (foreign policy and the rigged economy), but once elected immediately turned around and prioritized the core interests of oligarchy.

The Deranged Are Panicking Now – Mexican Trump Supporter Attacked Over Her MAGA Hat, Shreds Liberal Harpy On Camera

0

by Susan Duclos, All News Pipeline:

Just last week we reported on a deranged, mohawk-wearing woman, Parker Mankey, verbally attacked a 74 year old man named Victor, in a Starbucks in Palo Alto for doing nothing more than drinking his coffee while wearing his MAGA hat. She threatened to dox him (publicize his private information), called on her Facebook followers to harass him, and generally made a fool of herself, resulting in her employer terminating her from her job.

Well, it has just happened again………

CDC’s Recommendation for Hepatitis B Vaccination in Infants. Are There More Risks Than Benefits?

from Collective Evolution:

  • The Facts:The CDC’s recommendation for universal hepatitis B vaccination of infants puts most children at unnecessary risk of harm from the vaccine. By Jeremy R. Hammond, Contributing Writer, Children’s Health Defense
  • Reflect On:How much do physicians really know about vaccines?

Parents are told by public health officials and the media that they should vaccinate their children strictly according to the schedule recommended by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC’s routine childhood vaccine schedule is based on solid science, we are told, and it is imperative that all parents comply to reduce the societal disease burden. Anyone who dares to criticize or dissent from public vaccine policy is characterized as dangerously ignorant and irrational. A recent New York Times editorial, for example, characterized anyone who does so as “the enemy” and described all vaccines on the CDC’s schedule as “crucial shots”.
