Begala: We Should ‘Debate Whether We Should Blow Up’ Russia

from The Daily Beast:
Long-time Clinton family ally Paul Begala on Wednesday evening seemingly suggested President Trump should consider bombing Russia in response to the Kremlin’s meddling in the 2016 election. Speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the former adviser to Bill Clinton lamented how Trump supporters don’t seem particularly outraged about Russia’s meddling in American affairs. “We were and are under attack by a hostile foreign power,” he said, “and… we should be debating how many sanctions we should place on Russia or whether we should blow up the KGB, GSU, or GRU [Russia’s foreign intelligence agency].” He continued: “If I was Trump, I would be mad because it has tainted his victory.”

Our Disneyland Economy

by Michael Snyder, The Economic Collapse Blog:
Disneyland is known as a place “where dreams come true” and where every story always has a happy ending. But there is going to be no happy ending for the U.S. economy. Wishful thinking has resulted in one of the greatest stock market rallies in history in recent months, but like all childhood fantasies, it won’t last. The real economy continues to deteriorate, and we can see this even right outside of the gates of Disneyland. Every night growing numbers of homeless people sleep on the pavement just steps away from “the happiest place on Earth”. It can be fun to “play make believe” for a while, but eventually reality always catches up with us.

Just another day in Venezuela where attempted public lynchings and bombings become the norm

by Russel Davis, Natural News:
Less than a week after Venezuela marked its 100th day of civil unrest, the country continues to spiral out of control as more violent anti-government acts have become a fixture in the collapsing nation. Just recently, a bomb explosion in the streets of Caracas killed three people during the day of the “roadblock against the dictatorship” — a ten-hour blockade of the nation’s streets staged by the Venezuelan opposition.

Communications Minister Ernesto Villegas said seven national guard soldiers incurred injuries during the explosion, five of whom suffered third-degree burns. Justice Minister Nestor Reverol said the bombing was a cold-blooded effort to ambush the national guard soldiers. On his Twitter account, the minister said: “In the afternoon, ultra-right terrorist groups attempted to kill GNB [Bolivarian National Guard] soldiers on motorbike in Altamira. [The soldiers were surprised by] explosion of an artifact hidden in a backpack and placed by a roadblock.” Still according to Reverol, two national guard soldiers suffered gunshot wounds in El Hatillo and Petare as  violent demonstrations continued to sprout near the country’s capital.

Bubble Update: Stocks Are Now at 1999 Bubble Levels (Guess What’s Next)

by Graham Summers, Market Oracle:
Remember the 2007 Bubble?

Remember how everyone said that it really wasn’t that big of a bubble because stocks weren’t as expensive as they had been during the previous bubble (the Tech Bubble).

We all remember how that turned out: the bubble burst leading to the greatest financial crisis in 80 years.

Well, today’s bubble is WAY larger than that of 2007. And arguing that stocks are cheaper than they were during the Tech Bubble doesn’t hold water anymore either.

Below is a chart showing the S&P 500’s Price to Sales ratio (also called the P/S ratio). As you can see, based on this metric, the 2007 Bubble is a mere blip. We’re now in territory not seen since the 1999-2000 Bubble.

CANNABIS NEARLY PUT THIS DAD’S ILLNESS INTO REMISSION — THEN THE STATE TOOK HIS KIDS AWAY

by Matt Agorist, The Daily Sheeple:
As a father suffering from hepatitis C, Michael Brooks exhausted every pharmaceutical option available to treat the disease and extend his time on Earth with loved ones, before ultimately turning to medical cannabis — a move which, indeed, changed everything.

It saved my life,” Brooks declared to the State of Tennessee of the THC-intensive oil responsible for vastly improved health, in a hearing discussed at a later point in this article.

As definitive as his statement seemed, not everything came up roses for the devoted dad — despite medical cannabis having facilitated the best health of Brooks’ more than four decades alive.

In fact, two years after his impassioned plea to his state of residence, Brooks languishes on the brink of death, gaunt, pale — and without his kids to treasure the precious remaining last moments of his existence — because government.

Stanford professor: Students suffer “microaggressions” when told homework is easy

from TheHealthRanger:

In the latest chapter of liberal lunacy sweeping across America’s insane left-wing universities, a Stanford professor warns students against saying their homework was “easy” because it might trigger so-called “microaggressions” in other students who didn’t find it easy.

Stocks and Precious Metals Charts – The Calm Before the Storm

from Jesse’s Café Américain:
“In truth, however, nothing is inevitable and very little is new. And tech is no more the root of the problem than are trade or globalization. Many of our most vaunted innovations are simply methods — electronic or otherwise — of pulling off some age-old profit-maximizing maneuver by new and unregulated means.”

Thomas Frank

“It is my purpose, as one who lived and acted in these days, first to show how easily the tragedy of the Second World War could have been prevented; how the malice of the wicked was reinforced by the weakness of the virtuous.”
