The Rise of the American Gestapo: Has It Already Happened Here? – “Despite the finger-pointing and outcries of dismay from those who are watching the government discard the rule of law at every turn, the question is not whether Donald Trump is the new Adolf Hitler but whether the American Police State is the new Third Reich. For those who can view the present and past political landscape without partisan blinders, the warning signs are unmistakable: the Deep State’s love affair with totalitarianism began long ago.” – John W. Whitehead – EXCELLENT AS USUAL!!!!!
How Real Mind Control Works – “Governments and the elitists behind them do not necessarily need to physically cage, drug and brutalize people in order to influence how they behave. All they need to do is manage their perceptions, expectation and assumptions. This can be accomplished with large portions of the public, rather than one person at a time. The false left/right paradigm is a perfect petri dish for obtaining or manufacturing the consent of the masses to be hypnotized. They WANT to believe that their team, which they have willingly joined, is the correct team and that the leadership of that team has their best interests at heart. ” – Brandon Smith – ANOTHER GREAT ARTICLE AS WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
With Trump Looking Unbeatable in 2020, Dems Prepping Michelle Obama for Hail Mary Toss – “In other words, in an age of identity politics, the Democrats are suffering an identity crisis that includes a total lack of purpose as well as character. Aside from their collective fits of rage against Donald Trump – who they understand can only be defeated by impeachment or alien abduction – the Democrats lack a unifying rallying cry that is not somehow connected to the Kremlin.” – Robert Bridge
Conventional Politicians Are Infinitely Weirder Than Marianne Williamson – “Night one of the CNN Democratic debates has come and gone, and if you missed it you didn’t miss much. Basically the entire thing can be summed up as Jake Tapper asking the progressives on stage, “So explain why Americans would vote for your policies when we here at CNN have been telling them for years that they’re not allowed to support those policies?” Then for balance they ask one of the boring centrist candidates to explain why Bernie Sanders is crazy. Repeat for two and a half hours.” – Caitlin Johnstone
Notes of common sense at debate, but will the Democrats listen? – “There simply wasn’t sufficient time for serious debate on any worthy topic, with the CNN panel interrupting after a few sentences. The result was too many soundbites, and debates are supposed to be the thoughtful alternative to soundbites. That said, there was enough coherence to notice a pleasant surprise. To wit, Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren had a battle on their hands trying to justify their promises of endless free stuff.” – Michael Goodwin
Fox Veers Left – “The continued listing to port of Fox News, which rose to prominence precisely because it cut through the politically correct swamp fog that passed as media news just as Donald Trump sliced through the swamp itself on his way to the White House, was on full display on Fox News Sunday” – Daniel John Sobieski
US Stealing Syrian Oil – “Imperial adventurism is grand theft on a global scale — seizing, controlling, and looting the resources of targeted nations, along with exploiting their people.” – Stephen Lendman
Russia Has Issued a Warning to the US About Attacking Iran – “The U.S. and Israel have failed to persuade Russia to alter its stance on Iran, particularly when it comes to Syria.” – Darius Shahtahmasebi
Chinese forces gathering at Hong Kong border, White House officials monitoring escalation – “The White House is monitoring the sudden gathering of Chinese forces at the border with Hong Kong, in a worrying sign of escalation.” – Shannon Molloy
WARNING: Your Leafy Greens May Not Be Safe Even Though They Haven’t Been Recalled – “It seems like we are told about yet another hazard in our food supply nearly every week, and unfortunately, this week is no different.” – Dagny Taggart
What If The Collapse Never Comes? – “I see survival planning as an insurance policy for the future, and a way of life (and it can also be a lot of fun if you’re doing it right). How many homeowners have paid insurance premiums for 30 or more years, yet their home has never flooded or burnt? How many have dropped their policy only to have their home destroyed by fire months later? But what if I spend all that money stocking up on survival food only to throw it out when it passes the expiration date? What’s that you say? Why would you have to throw it out? You have to eat – don’t you? If you eat and rotate you should never have to throw anything out. Let me say that again – If you eat and rotate you should never have to throw anything out. Got it? Good. All you’re doing by stocking up is buying in advance and when you consider the fact that you’re eating at last years food prices, stocking up is a no brainer because it’s only going to get more expensive. If you’re throwing food away you’re doing something wrong.” – Creekmore
USFed: Infinite QE Forever at Zero Bound – “The turning point will be extremely negative, with horrible global press toward the King Dollar, and a ruinous reputation for USGovt debt. The Gold price will rejoice, rise, then soar.” – Jim Willie – GOOD ANALYSIS FROM JIM AS USUAL!!!!
Main Street Small Business on the Precipice – “Small businesses on the precipice need only one small shove to go over the edge, and there won’t be replacements filling the fast-multiplying empty storefronts.” – Charles Hugh Smith
