Republican Operative “Commits Suicide” After Leaving Strange Note

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:
Another suicide in the realm of Clinton politics is finally making its way into the light. This time, it’s a Republican operative who was said to be looking for the 30,000 missing emails from Hillary Clinton.

A longtime Republican operative from Chicago’s North Shore (who was at the center of a confusing Wall Street Journal story involving shadowy Russian hackers and Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 missing emails) committed suicide, according to the Chicago Tribune. Peter W. Smith, who was 81-years-old, a former private equity executive and longtime political operative, killed himself in a Minnesota hotel room days after telling his story to a reporter from WSJ, according to the Chicago Tribune.

ReadyNutrition Guys and Gals, it doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to see that we’re living in perilous times and on the brink of a slew of problems. There are several flashpoints occurring domestically and throughout the world that can translate into destabilization at any time. Knowing these things, your preparations and training need to continue. You can continue this preparation by conducting a home assessment regarding medicines and supplies you will need.

What do I mean by this? I mean for you to specifically identify all the needs of each of your family members and begin acquiring them. Family members have varying needs depending on age and physical condition. Now is the time to ensure you have all the meds you need and the vitamins you will need when the SHTF. Allow me to sound the personal “trumpet” that I have been sounding throughout the years and in many articles:

Canadian Government Offering Citizens Reward Points for “Good” Behavior

by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:
…what if we had governments coming up with the desired outcomes, behavioral scientists determining how to manipulate users into producing those outcomes, and game designers figuring out the best way to put those ideas into a game? Wouldn’t that be the most powerful and effective way to alter the habits and behaviors of a given population?

I warned you in 2010 when I published Episode 145 of my podcast, “You Are Being Gamed.” I warned you in 2015 when I released my video on “Sesame Credit: China’s Creepy New Social Engineering Experiment“. I warned you last year in these very pages when I penned my article detailing how “The CIA’s ‘Pokémon Go’ App is Doing What the Patriot Act Can’t.

Bad Models Result In Terrible Outcomes

Things are worsening because we pursue the wrong policies

Recently I spent a month in Buenos Aires. I went there to study the culture and the economy of a formrely prosperous land, filled with kind well-educated people.

One key lesson was this: Given enough time, bad policies will eventually ruin any advantage.

While not as bad off as it was in 2002, when the masses took to the streets banging pots and pans in protest of their nations ruined economy, the city of Buenos Aires is still clearly depressed. As are most of its people.

The New World Order Will Begin With Germany And China

by Brandon Smith, Alt Market:
In numerous articles over the years I have outlined in acute detail the agenda for a future one-world economic and governmental system led primarily by banking elites and globalists; an agenda they sometimes refer to as the “New World Order.” The term has gained such public exposure and notoriety recently that the globalists have fallen back to using different terminology. Some of them, like the International Monetary Fund’s Christine Lagarde, refer to it as the “global economic reset.” Others call it the “new multilateralism.” Still others refer to it as the “end of the unipolar order,” referring to the slow death of the U.S. economy as the central pillar of the global economy.

Whatever label they decide to use, all of them signal a full spectrum destabilization of the “old world” financial and geopolitical system and the ascendance of a tightly controlled one world edifice dominated openly by globalist hubs like the IMF and the BIS.

Financial Martial Law

Already, as an American, you are not free to spend your money as you see fit. (For a full breakdown, see “Bank Secrecy Act Regulations Explained” below.)

JPMorgan Chase—the country’s biggest bank—has banned cash payments for credit card debt, mortgages, and car loans. It has also banned the storage of “any cash or coins” in safe deposit boxes.

CIA Director Pompeo Admits Convincing Trump Over Disproven Chem Weapons Attack In Syria

by Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post:
Ever since the tragic and stupid launch of 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria by the United States took place in April, the entire incident has been represented as a one-man show by the corporate and even by the alternative media. The corporate press, which virtually never gives Trump a break on any issue real or imagined, was strangely approving of The Donald after his war crime while his detractors in the alternative media were presenting the act as that of a madman who is frighteningly close to the red button.

On June 25, veteran journalist Seymour Hersh released a bombshell article revealing a number of facets regarding the alleged chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun, Syria and the resulting volley of Tomahawk missiles fired by the United States at the al-Sha’aryat airbase in response. Hersh’s article provides the reader with what many of us already knew and wrote about at the time; i.e. that the Syrian military did not conduct a chemical weapons attack and that the United States was fully aware of that fact. Still, the U.S. government opted to use the attack as a justification for launching 59 Tomahawk missiles at a Syrian airbase that resulted in the deaths of Syrian soldiers, civilians, and children from the nearby village.

Peak Bull: Fake Economy, and Fake News

by David Stockman, DailyReckoning:
The American economy has been mangled by decades of assault on capitalist prosperity.

Growth is now dying because the Federal Reserve’s hit on corporate America that has strip-mined its balance sheets to feed the halls of Wall Street. Trillions of dollars have been thrown into financial engineering (stock buybacks, M&A deals and leveraged recaps) while neglecting real investment and productivity in Flyover America.

Dying Petrodollar Could Spell Disaster for the Fed as They Try to Dissolve Their Balance Sheet

from Rogue Money:
When Janet Yellen spoke at the last FOMC meeting, she reiterated the central bank’s desire to begin drawing down their balance sheet after close to 8 years of stimulus and bond buying. However, those who pay attention more to actions than from words understand that until the Fed actually begins to start selling their bond holdings, talk from the central bank is little more than the same rhetoric they used when promising a rate hike back in October of 2013, and then never instituting one until two years later.

Yet for just this instance let us take Yellen’s words as truth this time, and expect that the Fed will begin drawing down their balance sheet slowly sometime by the end of the year. And this leads us to ask the unspoken question of…
