On The Road to a Post-G20 World – “The trade war launched by the Trump administration against China may not have been solved by a 2½-hour dinner between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Donald Trump at the G20 in Buenos Aires on Saturday. But it may have opened a path towards a drastic realignment. Way beyond the histrionics surrounding the “family pic” – and whose nods and winks signaled surefire geopolitical capital – the G20 walked and talked like a last gasp to “save” the current turbo-capitalist world (dis)order.” – Pepe Escobar
To a Nation of Snowflakes, Christmas Has Become Another Trigger Word – ” The latest Christmas casualties in the campaign to create one large national safe space are none other than the beloved animated classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (denounced for promoting bullying and homophobia) which first aired on television on December 6, 1964, and the Oscar-winning tune “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (accused of being a date rape anthem) ” – John W. Whitehead
Lenin would be so proud – “The key lesson was that there would be zero consequences for bad behavior. So if the Fed is going to step in with a bailout every time banks screw up, why bother being conservative and responsible? That’s why we’re seeing the same mistakes over and over again.” – Simon Black
“TOO PERFECT TO BE NATURAL”: THOSE STRANGE SEISMIC WAVES – “Of course, this is all high octane speculation. It’s possible this is “just an anomaly” and that the French are correct that it is some sort of weird volcanism going on off the coast of Madagascar. But there’s that one percent of me that thinks – or rather, intuits – that this strange event might just be related to my “resonance” hypothesis about CERN’s collider, and by implication, the powerful ionospheric heaters.” – Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
