A Critical Threshold Has Just Been Crossed, And Things Will NEVER Be The Same Again… – “Just when things seemed to be settling down a little bit, our conflict with China has suddenly escalated to a dangerous new phase. This is not simply just a “trade war” any longer, and our relationship with China will never be the same again. As you will see below, President Trump just referred to Chinese President Xi Jinping as our “enemy”, and this is something that the Chinese are going to take extremely seriously. ” – Michael Snyder
Trumped: IEEPA – “Want to know why you have to be very careful what legislation you pass? This would be the reason.This is an extraordinarily broad set of economic powers. The first question raised is this: Can Trump prohibit companies from doing business in or through China? Reuters claims he can’t do that. Reuters is dead flat wrong. Trump certainly can do it, if they are US firms or any part of the commerce involved passes through the United States or is denominated in US dollars, provided that he first declares a National Emergency.” – Karl Denninger
Look to China to Learn About America – “This is what all too many Americans still don’t realize — that U.S. officials used the 9/11 attacks to destroy the freedom of the American people by adopting the same type of totalitarian powers that are wielded by the Chinese communist regime and other totalitarian regimes.” – Jacob G. Hornberger
Macron screams ‘fire!’ on a crowded planet as burning Amazon serves as ultimate G7 smokescreen – “Any chance of the seven most industrialized eco-trashers preventing the Amazon from going up in smoke is a bit like hoping Hollywood executives will find a way to stop sex and violence from appearing on the big screen. It’s probably not going to happen. The G7 wants to keep filling the seats for a show called ‘Capitalism’ and come next week few will remember the French president’s fiery, self-serving outburst. For those dozen or so people who still have not been shunned, shadow-banned or otherwise disappeared from Twitter, you may have heard about Emmanuel Macron’s latest Napoleon impersonation on the global soap box.” – Robert Bridge
BURN THE AMAZON! – “Cut down the trees. Kill the wild animals. Burn the bush. Pollute the rivers. Pave over the grass. Raise more beef, pigs and poultry in cages. That’s the credo of the new right. Hatred of Nature is an integral part of its politics. President Donald Trump is the high priest of such environmental vandalism. In his narrow land-developer mind, Nature is a left-wing liberal conspiracy” – Eric Margolis
The Word “Philanthropist” Is Poisonous – “Well hot damn, we’ve lost a Koch brother! Do your happy dance, call out the munchkins and let your voice shake the heavens with a rousing rendition of “Ding-dong the oligarch is dead!” David Koch, the younger of the two plutocratic faux-libertarian powerhouses who were until today collectively known as the Koch brothers, has died at 79. If you find my celebration of this distasteful, you can kindly kiss my bogan ass. Every time a toxic oligarchic death cultist dies there are always a bunch of people buzzing around social media and the blogosphere admonishing everyone to be respectful and polite because blah blah something about having a family.” – Caitlin Johnstone – CAITLIN CAN BE A LITTLE HARSH, BUT TO THE POINT!!!!
Where’s Ghislaine? – “Ghislaine, the daughter of the late Mossad operative Robert Maxwell, is not a peripheral player. She recruited pervert Epstein’s girls, taught them how to perform oral sex, and loaned them out to his rich and elite friends,. None will go to prison, or even face serious investigation. London police refuse to investigate Prince Andrew. A system of law designed for commoners doesn’t apply to royalty.” – Kurt Nimmo
The Missing Howls of Denunciation Over Major Sex Trafficking – “Why have the howls of outrage not echoed through the media? Why has the trumpet’s call to action been silent? Why haven’t the halls of Congress resounded with denunciation and the demands for justice.” – Michael Brenner
I Think My Dog’s a Democrat Bryan Lewis Official Video – A LITTLE HUMOR!!!
Mrs. Biden! Rescue Joe! Let him enjoy his twilight years in peace – “Given the increasingly obvious signs that Sleepy Joe is not up to the rigors of running for president, let alone actually being president, one must wonder why Mrs. Biden has not stepped in and put a compassionate stop to his campaign.” – Patricia McCarthy
Tulsi Gabbard’s Anti-War Foreign Policy – “Is she an ideal presidential aspirant? No one is. I take issue with some of her views, but admire her opposition to imperial wars and support for social justice. Polls show she has scant backing sadly, making it highly unlikely for her to become the Dem standard bearer. Establishment media first ignored her. Then as her name recognition grew, they considered her unqualified for the nation’s highest office for being anti-war and pro-social justice. History shows no anti-war US presidential aspirant has a chance to win out over challengers — not in a nation addicted to endless wars of aggression.” – Stephen Lendman
Are These Mainstream Media Reports on the Looming Recession a Political Ploy? – “Why is the recession becoming “official” now? As we head into the 2020 election cycle, it would certainly be convenient to pin an economic disaster on President Trump.” – Daisy Luther
Cities Are Saying ‘No’ to 5G, Citing Health, Aesthetics—and FCC Bullying – “Those hawking specious safety concerns about the new technology have found common cause with some of America’s most powerful mayors” – Christopher Mims – PEOPLE ARE WAKING UP TO THE DANGERS OF 5G!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh God, and I Don’t Mean Trump; I mean GOD help us! – “It’s out of control. And I’m not even talking about the stock market, which fell off a cliff. I’m talking about the president who has deified himself. I hesitate to write strongly against Trump because I understand why many readers here voted for him, but today is a day that shall live in insanity! I understand that we need someone who is anti-establishment; but, at the risk of offending my own audience, enough is enough with this guy! He’s done nothing but serve the establishment. He’s flooded the White House with establishment leaders. He’s currently turning himself into the perfect scapegoat for the Federal Reserve. But now he’s accepted a conspiracist’s anointing as the Second Coming of the Chosen One!” – David Haggith
More on the puzzle of negative interest rates – “Interest rates on many bonds have plunged into negative territory. But why on earth would anyone be willing to save $1000 only to get $999 in the future? Saving up for a rainy day has always gone hand in hand with a positive interest rate, not a negative one.” – JP Koning
Wells Fargo Tries To Diss Gold, But Fails – “Major US bank Wells Fargo has apparently been getting a lot of client inquiries about gold, and has responded pretty much as you’d expect: The goal of Wells Fargo’s statement was clearly to steer clients back into investment vehicles that generate fees and away from precious metals which generally don’t.” – John Rubino
VERSE FOR THE DAY
