Aspartame: Putting the DIE Into Dieting Since 1981

by Sayer Ji, Green Med Info:

Pushed globally as a beneficial to dieters since its approval in 1981, accumulating research indicates that aspartame may actually damage the brain and cause cancer, to name but a few of a wide range of adverse health effects consumers risk by using this ‘no-calorie’ sugar alternative.

Google “aspartame” and you will find http://www.aspartame.org/ on the first page search results. Billing itself as an ‘Aspartame Information Center,’ this website opens with “The Benefits of Aspartame,” discussing how as a ‘low-calorie’ sweetener aspartame helps consumers with weight control, diabetes and the prevention of tooth decay.

Twitter CEO: Conservative Employees ‘Do Feel Silenced By … What They Perceive To Be’ Liberal Bias

by Frank Camp, Daily Wire:

New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen recently sat down with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for a wide-ranging interview which was published on Recode.

Near the beginning of the hour-long interview, Rosen asked the following question: “Why did you go public with this generalization that people in Twitter are generally liberal or lean left, and that’s our culture, which I have no trouble believing is true, but why did you start talking about that?”

from Fellowship Of The Minds:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 28, called a rising “political star” by the New York Times, won the June 26 Democratic primary in New York’s 14th congressional district, defeating incumbent Congressman Joe Crowley, in what has been called the biggest upset victory in the 2018 midterm-election season.

Ocasio-Cortez is an avowed socialist and member of the Democratic Socialists of America. She advocates hard-Left policies such as gun control, an end to the use of fossil fuels, single-payer (government) healthcare system, universal healthcare (Medicare for All), tuition-free universities, forgiveness of all student debts, amnesty (“path to citizenship”) for illegal aliens, abolition of ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement), and impeachment of President Trump.

Global Crisis Hot Spots and Pressure Points – Jim Willie

0

by Jim Willie, Gold Seek:

A preface is required to explain that the US Federal Reserve is responsible for every grand financial crisis in the last 30 years, dating back to the Great Depression and its supposed spurious resolution to Black Monday of 1987. Little realized is that the ’87 crash was a direct result of the impact from outsourcing US industry, whose trend began in 1984 with Intel. The lost legitimate income had a grand effect on the inflows to the US Stock Market. Of course, the newly forming Reich Economic team preferred to describe it differently. The important outcome from the cleanup was the creation of multi-$trillion bank derivatives to serve as phony foundation for the entire Western banking system. Greenspan blessed it as good and firm, but now we know it was soft and weak. These derivatives are blowing up, which will require bailouts and a replacement in the Gold Standard. Instead, expect the derivatives to ramp up further with greater leverage up to the assured catastrophe. The fallout will be great.

Bad Money

by Chris Martenson, Peak Prosperity:

Our debt-based fiat money system poses an existential threat

We’re all going to have to be a lot more resilient in the future.

The “long emergency”, as James Howard Kunstler puts it, is now upon us.

If ever there was a wake-up call from Mother Nature, it’s been the weather events over the past 12 months.

Last year, the triplet Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, and Irma resulted in thousands of deaths (mainly in Puerto Rico) and tens of $billions in destruction.

UK Defending Al-Qaeda on 9/11 Anniversary! Trump Was Always Right About Leaving Syria

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche PAC:

The Schiller Institute and LaRouchePAC remain mobilized against obvious British-led attempts to organize a UK-France-U.S. missile attack against Syria, and against Russian forces there, whether by using a “false flag” chemical attack, or even without the chemical-weapons pretense. The threat of war even between the leading nuclear powers remains grave. The Schiller Institute’s representatives and its collaborators were covered in Southwest Asia in recent days exposing the “false flag” pretense and the British intent to launch war. Ulf Sandmark of Sweden and Odile Mojon of France toured Homs, Aleppo, and Palmyra, Syria, and held a press conference in Palmyra with Syrian government officials to present the peace alternative …

A Record 7 Named Storms Are Swirling Across The Globe – Has ‘The Day After Tomorrow’ Arrived?

0

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:

Is something extremely unusual happening to our planet?  At this moment, Hurricane Florence is just one of seven named storms that are currently circling the globe.  That matches the all-time record, and it looks like that record will be broken very shortly as a couple more storms continue to develop.  Back in 2004, a Hollywood blockbuster entitled “The Day After Tomorrow” depicted a world in which weather patterns had gone mad.  One of the most impressive scenes showed nearly the entire planet covered by hurricane-type storms all at once.  Of course things are not nearly as bad as in that film, but during this hurricane season we have definitely seen a very unusual number of hurricanes and typhoons develop.  As our planet continues to change, could this become “the new normal”?

People’s QE Is Coming And The Result Will Be A Disaster

from ZeroHedge:

The Tragic Consequences Of Jack Asset Monetary Policy

You have to own assets to make it in the New Economy. Pity the younger generations.

Check out the growing wealth disparity in the below chart, which is clearly the result of monetary policy.

The Fed’s increasing reliance  on the asset price channel of the monetary transmission mechanism over the past decade has been to “jack up” or inflate assets, hoping the “wealth effect” stimulates aggregate demand.   Household net worth is now at a record level and the economy is purring.

Anti-Trump FBI lawyer Lisa Page ‘interned’ ‘under Clinton,’ texts reveal

0

from True Activist:

Ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page, whose Trump-bashing texts made it clear who she backed in the 2016 presidential election, refers in a newly revealed message to serving as an intern “under Clinton.”

Page, who exchanged tens of thousands of texts with disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok, revealed the information in one message among a new batch exclusively obtained by Fox News.

“Get inspired and depressing reading that article about how Obama approached the mail room,” Page wrote Strzok on Jan. 19, 2017 – the last day of the Obama administration. “Needless to say, it was very different when I interned there under Clinton.”

Predicting the End of the World—Part Two

0

by Gary Christianson, Miles Franklin:

Part one discussed the “what” and “why” of unpayable debt, an inevitable “reset” or the end of the current financial world. Part two addresses when.

REVIEW FROM PART ONE:
A risk/reward analysis for 2018—202? points toward gold and silver, not stocks, bonds, corporate debt, student loans or most asset classes.
The “everything bubble” will burst. Consequences will be dire for many individuals, businesses and governments.
Debt and spending are “out of control.” Central banks will “paper over” massive defaults, and fiat currencies will devalue.
Hyperinflation, defaults and resets occurred in many countries and could (will) happen in developed countries such as the U.S.

Swiss “Socialist Paradise” Approves ‘Universal Basic Income’ Of $2,750 A Month

from ZeroHedge:

Two years after the people of Switzerland overwhelmingly voted against establishing an “unconditional” Universal Basic Income (i.e. ‘free money’ for every man, woman and child in the country of roughly 8 million), one village has decided to go ahead with the experiment.

Per Bloomberg, the village of Rheinau, which is situated on the banks of the Rhine river roughly an hour’s train ride from Zurich, is planning to hand out 2,500 francs ($2,750) a month to every inhabitant. But for the program to move forward, more than half of the village’s residents had to say yes.
