What to Eat When You’re Broke

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

The lower your income is, the more difficult it is to be particular about what you feed your family.

This probably isn’t an earth-shattering revelation to anyone, but if you feel like experimenting, try to buy a week’s worth of healthy food for a family on a budget of, say, $50-75.  Food manufacturers that target lower-income shoppers with more affordable products tend to include more GMOs and toxic ingredients in their offerings.

Sometimes, it just isn’t possible to stick to my usual food restrictions.  Generally speaking, I avoid:

Cesar Et Tu?

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

So we have our nutjob….

The man authorities allege waged a week-long reign of terror against prominent Democrats by sending crude bombs through the mail is reportedly a former stripper and bodybuilder who attended pro-Trump rallies — often sporting a red MAGA cap — and posted partisan rants online.

And… if you keep reading, he has a history of bomb threats (the proper word for a threat without an actual explosive device is hoax, by the way.)

And there’s this, because the media just has to keep the lie alive.

Symbolic Pics of the Month 10/18

from Vigilant Citizen:

In this edition of SPOTM: A hockey star, a basketball star, a music star, a movie superstar and a cello.

Auston Matthews is quickly becoming one of the biggest superstars in the National Hockey League which lead him to be featured in GQ magazine. The article is entitled NHL Star Auston Matthews Is Ready for His Close-Up, an expression that is very “Hollywood”. As you can see, the close-up is actually on the one-eye sign.

How (Not) to Pop a Bubble

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:

Quantitative Tightening means that all those dollars that were thrown around the world over the past decade are now being sucked back into the US.

It may not have been the craziest headline that the Trump whirlwind has generated in recent months, but you might have seen it amidst all the Stormy Kavanaghs out there: Trump says Fed is his ‘biggest threat’ because it is raising rates too fast . This latest outburst is just one more example of a pattern we have seen emerge over the past two years: Any and all good news about the economy is because of Trump, and any and all bad news about the economy is because of the Fed. I’ve touched on this theme before, but I think we all know how it goes.

Every Single Vote In California Should Be Rendered Invalid Because Of This

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Our Constitution permits only Citizens to serve in Congress (Art. I, §2, cl. 2 & §3, cl. 3); the President must be a ‘natural born Citizen’ (Art. II, §1, cl. 5); Article IV, §2, cl. 1 & §1 of the 14th Amendment refer to the “privileges and immunities of citizens”; and the 15th, 19th, 24th, and 26th Amendments5 refer to voting by ‘Citizens’.

You may think my headline is a bit over the top, but considering that San Francisco, California is allowing non-citizens to vote and there are at least 1,500 non-citizens registered to vote in California, in clear violation of the US Constitution, I don’t think I’m that far out of line.

Trump and Putin Are In Grave Danger

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

Because the tenets of liberalism only appeal to the lazy, communists, satanists, thugs and the mentally ill, America will never willingly ever accept liberalism and the sacrifice of the sovereignty of the United States. Therefore, it may become necessary to cut off the head of the snake because the Globalists are in an absolute state of panic.

Blacks and Hispanics, in record numbers, are flocking to support Donald Trump and his economic policies that reward self-determination and hard work.The globalists and the liberals are losing their control over historically liberal voting blocks. The globalists see the country awakening with a renewed sense of populism and nationalism and the powers-that-be are not going to allow America to survive for much longer if its citizens continue to embrace the politics of conservatism and nationalism.

The Flight to Safety Accelerates, Hungary Increases Gold Holdings Ten Fold – Nathan McDonald (26/10/2018)

by Nathan McDonald, Sprott Money:

We’ve talked at length about how the geopolitical climate around the globe has ratcheted up in temperature over the past few years. The times are growing more and more uncertain as trade wars erupt and as the old global powers are seemingly losing control with each passing day.

This has led to countries such as Russia, and China, both of which are unarguably out of the “old” power structure and desperately want to increase their ground in the international game of finance and control.

Undoubtedly they are doing this and asserting themselves in any possible way that they can, suffering blow-backs and setbacks from the old power structure for each stride that they make.

One such tactic that they are using, and one that I have often highlighted, is their continued move away from US dollars as their reserve currency of choice. In its place, they are buying precious metals, most notably gold, at a feverish pace, exponentially increasingly their holdings as rapidly as they can.

Friday Hasn’t Even Started Yet, But It’s Already Ugly

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:

The FANGMAN stocks went to heck afterhours.

Just a note to show how decrepit and ephemeral the enthusiasm for stocks is.

So far in October, the S&P 500 has booked 13 losing days, including October 10, when the index dropped 3.3%, and October 24, when it dropped 3.1%. Then came today, with the feel-good moment of a boisterous 1.9% gain. And then came after-hours trading, and nearly everything went to heck, particularly the FANGMAN stocks that weigh so heavily on the index with their $4-trillion market cap. And Friday morning looks already ugly. All of the FANGMAN stocks were in the red in late trading:

Who profits from the end of the mid-range nuclear treaty?

by Pepe Escobar, Asia Times:

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has moved its Doomsday Clock to only 2 minutes to midnight. It might be tempting to turn this into a mere squabble about arrows and olives if this wasn’t such a terrifying scenario.

US president Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev, secretary-general of the USSR, signed the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF) in 1987.
