The Breakdown of Society in Venezuela Is “something desperate and dangerous”

by J.G. Martinez D., The Organic Prepper:

One of the most devastating facts that I recently realized we have to deal with is with the changes in the very fabric of society associated with a collapse of this kind. We are seeing a breakdown of the society we once had and it is turning into something desperate and dangerous.

If the LEOs were a necessity, the possibility of access to a justice system like the one we had before is unlikely.

Not that in Venezuela we were excellent with this, but…in the cities there was some degree of personal security, especially in some high-ranked neighborhood in Caracas. I remember the mayor of Chacao, Irene Saez, gaining huge prestige in this area, as she founded a special police force, with an emphasis on honesty, ethical and moral values. They were among the best selected personnel in the country during those years.

Somebody Pressed The Panic Button On Wall Street – Bank Stocks And Tech Stocks Crash As The Yield Curve Inverts

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Stocks aren’t supposed to crash in December.  Most of the time we see a nice “Santa Claus rally” to close out the year, and so what happened on Tuesday is definitely extremely unusual.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 799 points, which was the fourth largest single day point decline in stock market history.  In fact, there was not a single day during the entire financial crisis of 2008 when the Dow dropped by as many points as it did on Tuesday.  Many believed that this “stock market correction” would be limited to October, but then it stretched into November, and now it has extended into the “safe month” of December.  What in the world is going on out there?

from Vigilant Citizen:

The Illinois Statehouse installed several holiday decorations this year: A Nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus, a Christmas tree, a Menorah and … a Satanic sculpture.

Entitled “Snaketivity”, the display depicts a snake wrapped around a woman’s hand as she holds an apple. On the side of the sculpture is the logo of the Satanic Temple – the head of Baphomet inside an inverted pentagram – and the words “Knowledge is the Greatest Gift”.

Why California’s Housing Market is in for Serious Trouble

0

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

Homebuilder Toll Brothers just said it out loud.

High-end homebuilder Toll Brothers, when it announced earnings this morning, made some peculiar comments.

Not so peculiar was the plunge in new orders in its fourth quarter, ended October 31: New orders dropped 13.3% from a year ago to 1,715 units. In California, Toll Brothers’ largest market by revenue, new orders plunged 39.4% to just 226 units. Toll Brothers also slashed its guidance for home sales in its fiscal year 2019. This is not so peculiar because I already reported on the drop in new home prices across the US, amid unsold inventory of new homes that has ballooned to 7.4 months supply, the highest since February 2011, toward the end of Housing Bust 1.

Senators Convinced By CIA’s “Smoking Saw” Evidence Crown Prince Orchestrated Khashoggi Murder

0

from Zero Hedge:

Trump’s attempt to keep the Saudi Crown Prince away from the spotlight – and keep pumping as much oil as possible to keep the price of oil low – just suffered a major blow when US senators said a classified CIA memo convinced them that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman played a role in dissident columnist Jamal Khashoggi’s dismemberment, with one describing the evidence as “a smoking saw.”

Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker of Tennessee rejected Jared Kushner’s Donald Trump’s efforts to downplay the prince’s role, and according to Bloomberg said that if a jury were to consider a case against Prince Mohammed, he’d be convicted of murder in 30 minutes.

Investigative Journalist Laura Loomer Handcuffs Herself To Twitter Office To Expose Censorship (Video)

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

While a crowd gathered, some mocked her while others praised her courage.

Investigative journalist Laura Loomer handcuffed herself to the office doors of Twitter in New York on Thursday to decry the blatant censorship by the social media outlet.

In a video posted online that runs almost 2 hours, Loomer and several of her friends can be seen attaching a sign with enlarged tweets over the door as she handcuffs herself to the door.

The sign enlarged and compared two tweets:  One by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and the other by Loomer, for which she received a permanent ban.

Money Linda Sarsour Raised for Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting Victims Went To An Islamic Center With Terror Ties

0

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

The campaign — named “Muslims Unite to Repair Jewish Cemetery” — had raised $162,468 through the Muslim crowdfunding site LaunchGood, far beyond its set goal of $20,000. But only 30% of the proceeds were disbursed, while designated cemeteries pleaded for promised funds. Their calls were met with deafening silence.

No one should be surprised by this. Sarsour has done it before. She staged a narcissistic publicity stunt when hundreds of Jewish gravestones were desecrated and destroyed at various cemeteries (most likely by her coreligionists); Sarsour glommed onto the news story and made it her own. She jumped on a campaign to raise money to repair the vandalism (and her reputation due to her long history of antisemitism).

Trump Threatens To Declassify “Devastating” Docs If Democrats Investigate Him

0

from ZeroHedge:

If only to vent his frustrations about GM, the stock market chaos, and the prospect of turning over power to the Democrats (who have gleefully bragged about the many investigations they’re planning to launch in January), President Trump has given a series of freewheeling interviews over the past two days where he has threatened a government shutdown, expressed his regret over choosing Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and even opined that Janet Yellen was “too short” to be chairwoman of the Federal Reserve.

Hoaxed: The ‘Illegal Alien Mom with Barefoot Kids’ Photo was a Setup – Another Staged #FakeNews Production

0

by Joe Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Yesterday’s Headline is today’s hoax. The illegal alien mother ‘fleeing’ from the border wall was all a lie. It was a setup.

After further review, yesterday’s ‘horrific’ picture of a woman with barefoot children running from the US border wall was a hoax. In the background of the picture a group of men are posing for one camera man and another is running towards another camera man. In other areas, people are just standing around. The woman with the children was just a photo-op:

Sober Up Folks, the Fight for Trump’s Presidency Continues Ferociously; Dershowitz Opines that Mueller Report Will Be Politically Devastating

0

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

Yesterday, on ABC’s ThisWeek with George Stephanopoulos, Alan Dershowitz, a frequent defender of President Trump on behalf of the U.S. Constitution, said that Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel Report will be designed to be “politically devastating” to the President and that it could come down the pike soon, with the White House working on its response. Dershowitz continues to state that President Donald Trump will not face criminal charges from Mueller but could face legal jeopardy based on ongoing and simultaneous investigations in the Southern District of New York concerning his financial dealings. These investigations have been coordinated with Mueller’s probe. Dershowitz implied that Mueller would structure his report to be as damaging as possible to Trump in order to fuel impeachment proceedings in the House.
