Llpoh: Get Out While You Can

0

by Llpoh, The Burning Platform:

I am currently stateside. It has been a few years, and I had to take care of some business. My wife and I have revisited some of our favorite spots, and caught up with some family. We have driven through some of God’s finest works. There is no more beautiful landscape anywhere on earth than the west coast, Route 66, southern Colorado, the Badlands, etc.

That said, I say this most sincerely, and with great sorrow. Those of you who can, get out now.

What I have seen leads me to depression, and there is no road back for the US, in my opinion.

by Ellaine Castillo, Natural News:

A group of researchers conducted a systematic review that revealed the potential use of coriander (Coriandrum sativum) as a treatment for diabetes mellitus. This study, which was published in Herbal Medicine: Open Access, reviewed articles that were published about coriander treatment of diabetes mellitus in animal models.

  • Many studies are exploring the use of herbs, such as coriander, in treating diabetes mellitus since existing treatments cause unwanted side effects.

One Step Closer to Recession

by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:

As you know by now, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates again yesterday, its eighth increase since the rate hike cycle began in 2015.

In his post-announcement press conference, Jerome Powell cited a strong economy, low unemployment, solid growth, etc. He said that “It’s a particularly bright moment” for the economy.

Barring significant developments, the Fed may raise rates again in December and perhaps three times next year.

BREAKING: Christine Ford Caught in MAJOR LIE – Photos Prove House Updates Occurred Much Earlier Than Claims in Senate Testimony!

by Joe Hoft, The Gateway Pundit:

Supporters of Christine Ford protested outside her home in Palo Alto, California two weeks ago. CBS Local included a photo of Ford’s home in their coverage.

The address has been widely reported online and the home was pictured in the local news.

Dr. Christine Ford’s last minute accusations against squeaky-clean Judge Brett Kavanaugh stunned the political world.

The Democrats & Their Ties To Communists & Socialists In America

0

by Leon Puiseegur, Freedom OutPost:

I have written a number of articles about the Democrats and just touched the surface of what the Democrats have become over decades of time. Today, the Democrats are aligned with the Socialists and Communists in our nation that wish to get rid of our Constitution and replace it with something more aligned to a Communist ideology. We can clearly make this statement based upon facts few will ever see or even recognize.

Gold Risks Lower Lows Next, But The Outlook Remains Bullish – David Brady(28/09/2018)

by David Brady, Sprott Money:

We now have confirmation that the trade war between the U.S. and China is going to be a protracted one, given that neither side is willing to back down. China has declined any further talks because they refuse to negotiate under the threat of further tariffs, or as they put it, with a knife at their throat. At the same time, Trump is clearly intent on pressing ahead with tariffs on all of China’s exports to the U.S., regardless of rising opposition at home.

What Disconnect? – Ted Butler

by Theodore Butler, Silver Seek:

Sometimes things that are obvious truths can appear before us that we have trouble seeing; along the lines of being too close to the trees to see the forest. It’s not that we can’t see what’s directly in front of us, but rather that we just can’t put what we see into proper perspective. To be sure, this failure to fully comprehend what we can clearly see is not caused by any lack of intelligence and may, in fact, be due to too much knowledge and experience in a given field.

A case in point is a recent article by the top-notch Reuters commodities analyst, Andy Home. To be sure, I’m not using the term “top-notch” loosely, as I find Home to be among the very best in his field. And I can’t help but feel that his knowledge and experience are precisely what is blinding him to something staring him squarely in the face. I would ask you to take the time to read his article about zinc from a few days ago.

The Rental Markets in America, from Hot to Cold

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:


Rents fell in New York, Seattle, Washington DC, San Francisco, plunged in Chicago and Honolulu. Many less expensive cities are red-hot.

In San Francisco, the most expensive of the 100 largest rental markets in the US, rents peaked in October 2015, with the median asking rent at $3,670 for a 1-bedroom apartment and $5,000 for a 2-bedroom. By the end of 2017, they were down 7% and 12% from their peaks. But in the spring 2018, rents started rising again. In September, they almost, but not quite, reclaimed their peaks: The median asking rent for 1-BR apartments rose to $3,650, and for 2-BR apartments to $4,800. These are crazy numbers. Hence our local term, “Housing Crisis” – a crisis of affordability in a hyper-inflated market.

Kavanaugh says he’s victim of ‘revenge on behalf of the Clintons’

from Press TV:

US President Donald Trump’s embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has accused Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee of launching a smear campaign to tarnish his reputation and sink his confirmation in revenge for their bruising defeat in the 2016 presidential election.

During an emotional and aggressive opening statement at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on his confirmation, Kavanaugh called Democratic opposition to his nomination “revenge on behalf of the Clintons,” referring to 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
