Catalonia and other Disasters – “Policemen hitting peaceful older ladies till they bleed is shocking, and we are all shocked. Many of us will be surprised too, but we shouldn’t be. Spain is still the land of Franco, and his followers continue to exert great influence in politics, police and military. And it’s not just them: one video from Madrid showed people singing a fascist theme from the France era.” – Raul Ilargi Meijer
Tillerson Shamefully Calls Kurdish Vote for Independence Illegitimate – “Has the government of the united States become so politicized that it, in essence, has forgotten how it came to exist? Apparently so.” – Suzanne Hamner
Puerto Rico: A Public Health Catastrophe – “Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke deplorably called the federal response to crisis conditions in Puerto Rico a “good news story,” adding she’s “very satisfied.” San Juan Mayor Yulin Cruz emotionally responded, saying “(w)ell, maybe from where she’s standing it’s a good-news story.” “When you’re drinking from a creek, it’s not a good-news story. When you don’t have food for a baby, it’s not a good-news story.” “When you have to pull people down from their buildings – I’m sorry, but that really upsets and frustrates me.” ” – Stephen Lendman
The Globalists Are Systematically Destroying America’s Middle Class – “When people are dependent on the government they are much easier to control. We are often told that we are not “compassionate” when we object to the endless expansion of government social programs, but that is not how the debate should be framed. In America today, well over 100 million people receive money from the federal government each month, and the number of Americans that are truly financially independent is continually shrinking.” – Michael Snyde
Wars Are Not Fought To ‘Protect Your Freedoms’ – “It can be argued that the US military fights overseas for empire, for oil, or for corporations. But I’m still waiting for a logical argument that the US military fights wars in foreign lands to protect the rights given to Americans in 1791.” – Chris Ernesto
The FT Defends Soros Against Conspiracy-Theory-Peddling Propagandists – “The FT defending Soros is proof that conspiracy theorists are crazy and preempts the conspiracy theories about The FT being part of the same group. Of course, “this message was approved” by none other than George Soros himself…” – AND IT MUST BE TRUE IF THE FINANCIAL TIMES SAYS IT IS, RIGHT!!!!!!
Fort Knox: “Glad Gold Is Safe!” – “Officially the Fort Knox Bullion Depository contains 147.3 million ounces of gold. However, the last audit was performed over 60 years ago. According to reliable sources “audits” since then have been incomplete and inadequate. Current policy seems to be “don’t ask, don’t tell” because the answer might be disconcerting, might destroy the narrative that the US gold exists, and the revelation of missing gold might encourage other embarrassing questions” – Gary Christenson
