THE BIG PICTURE NEWS
And we stop it now for the “real” common good – “I am not a medical expert. I have today the same questions I had three years ago. If I asked them today and researched the answers I would conclude the same things: Those three questions remain for all to ask. And always the usual question about anything in “this” world—follow the money, who profits? What I do know, or at least am arrogant enough to suggest, is that amnesty is malarkey. Amnesty takes no responsibility. It is a silly, ugly self-serving excuse for something that should not have happened.” – Sylvia Shawcross – GOOD READ FROM SYLVIA AS USUAL!!!!!!!!!!!
Central bank digital currencies and banking crises – “How do you get people to take their money out of banks in droves and put it into the new fednow CBDC? You got it: by making it look too dangerous to stay.” – El Gato Malo
The Outer Limits of Central Banking: “We Will Control the Horizontal. We Will Control the Vertical.” – “Just like that spooky and prescient intro to The Other Limits that haunted many a young mind with fears of the future, central banks are now also telling you, “You are about to participate in a great adventure.” Listen as the bloated talking head of the world’s fattest bank, the Bank for International Settlements, tells you about how central banks, of which his is the most central, will control you with central bank digital currencies (CBDCs):” – David Haggith

1 in 36 Kids Have Autism, CDC Says — Critics Slam Agency’s Failure to Investigate Causes – “One in 36 (2.8%) 8-year-old children — 4% of boys and 1% of girls — have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), based on an analysis of data from 2020, published today by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.” – Brenda Baletti, Ph.D – WOULD THEY TELL THE TRUTH ANYWAY IF THEY DID INVESTIGATE OR WOULD THEY BLAME IT ON SOMETHING ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Season is Here – “Of course, the newspaper USA Today chose transgender activist Leigh Finke for its Women of the Year award because in the USA of the here-and-now (today, for instance), boundaries are a thing of the past, and if a woman of the year happens to come with the “package” that signifies male-of-the-species, you’d better ignore that and go along with the gag — or prepare for the punishments that will come down until your morale improves. The transgender movement has crystalized into the Party of Chaos’s favored instrument for enforcing its ethos of unreality on a population obdurately stuck on thinking in categories, on making hateful distinctions between things. The only thing left to challenge is the distinction between being alive or dead, which is exactly what you would get in Zombieland, a place that the Party of Chaos (and its mentors in the World Economic Forum) long to take you to, where you will have nothing and be happy! Expect three evolving dynamics to stipulate our country’s zeitgeist in the stirring months to come.” – James Howard Kunstler – ANOTHER VERY GOOD READ FROM MR. KUNSTLER TODAY!!!!
John Kirby Spins Himself Silly With Claim That Putin-Xi Meeting Was Proof of Biden’s ‘Leadership’ – “In this episode of You Can’t Make This Stuff Up… Thankfully, we don’t have to make up anything about Joe Biden and his administration. In fact, some of the ridiculousness that comes outta these people rivals the brilliant satire of The Babylon Bee. This is one such example. John Kirby, National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications for the White House, tried to pull off a beauty during an interview with Bloomberg on Thursday, claiming that the recent meeting in Moscow between dictators Vladimir Putin And Xi Jinping demonstrated true “leadership”… of Joe Biden. No, really. Precisely, Kirby said, the meeting showed that “American leadership on the world stage is back.” (Apologies if you just spit coffee, or whatever, all over your screen.)” – Mike Miller
Informants Everywhere – “The shroud of secrecy surrounding the FBI’s foreknowledge and engagement in the events of January 6 is disintegrating, no matter how hard Beltway lifers try to keep it intact.” – By Julie Kelly
Michigan governor hands her state over to Chinese communists: Battery maker pledges in bylaws to ‘further objectives of Chinese Communist Party’ – “Corporate documents obtained by The Midwesterner reveal the Chinese company that the Michigan government is luring with $715 million in taxpayer-funded incentives is not only a business. It’s also pledged itself to become a key facilitator for the Chinese Communist Party in America. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer personally signed off on this deal,” – Leo Hohmann
There She Goes . . . – “GM has just officially announced the end of the line for Camaro – again. But this time, the end is likely to be forever. At least insofar as what the Camaro is – and has been. This is what comes of getting “bailed out” by the government. It means getting bought out by the government. It means getting owned. That’s what GM has been since the bankruptcy-bailouts of 2009. Yes, the loans were paid back. But there was interest, so to speak.” – Eric Peters – HAVE OWNED BOTH A COUPLE OF CAMAROS AND A MUSTANG OVER THE YEARS, BUT I’LL NEVER BUY AN EV VERSION OF EITHER OR ANY EV FOR THAT MATTER. NO ONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO TELL YOU WHAT KIND OF CAR TO DRIVE, WHERE DOES THIS END. WILL IT BE WHAT TO EAT ( AKA. BUGS ), WHAT TO WEAR, NEXT? THEY ARE ALREADY TELLING YOU WHAT APPLIANCES, LAWN MOWERS AND ETC. THAT YOU CAN OWN. AND THE SHEEP 🐑 JUST BLEET AND SAY OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How To Post a Cringe Comment – NPC Substackers and the winner of Weimar Price is Right – “I visited the cringiest comment section on Substack so you don’t have to, NYC’s new logo and brand, plus the winner of the Weimar Price is Right contest. These commenters are living examples of what a poor information diet does to your brain. Watching CNN and reading NYT does to mental health what eating donuts and Big Macs does to physical health. Boomers who have been on this diet for decades are the mental equivalent of the morbidly obese.” – Yuri Bezmenov – PRIME EXAMPLES OF HOW PEOPLE DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!!
Gun grabber hypocrisy 1: Bloomberg’s gun control stooge forced to squirm over non-prosecution of Hunter Biden for gun law violations – “Michael Bloomberg may not outrank George Soros in the list of malign billionaires, but according to all reports, he’s far richer. And like Soros, min-Mike buys political influence by backing others that do his ideological bidding with his money. One of his passions — backed by his big bucks — is disarming Americans so that the state will be all-powerful. When the state demands compliance from what used to be a free citizenry, it must be obeyed if the little guys are disarmed. Just ask Hitler’s ghost how much easier it was rounding up the Jews once they were disarmed.” – Thomas Lifson

They’re Rebooting “Axis Of Evil” On The 20th Anniversary Of The Iraq Invasion – “The western political/media class has suddenly resurrected the phrase “Axis of Evil” in recent days to refer to the increasing intimacy between Russia and China, just in time for the 20th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. Famed Iraq War cheerleader Sean Hannity appears to have kicked things off last week, saying on his show that “a new Axis of evil is emerging” between China, Russia and Iran, a slogan that has since been echoed numerous times this week. On Tuesday former ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told Fox News that Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping are “two dictators that have said they are unlimited partners,” asserting that “This is the new Axis of Evil, with Iran being their junior partner.”” – Caitlin Johnstone

Why Vladimir Putin Cannot Be Arrested by International Criminal Court – “One should remember how many illegal invasions, brutal unprovoked aggressions, orchestrated colour revolutions and wars have the USA and NATO started and waged in the last century for years and decades to get a “bigger picture”.” – Tatiana Obrenovic – YES, ONE MUST ALWAYS LOOK AT THE BIGGER PICTURE!!!!!!!!
US launches airstrikes in Syria – “The Pentagon has said Iran-affiliated groups were targeted, while local sources claim civilian infrastructure was hit. Some 900 US troops remain in oil-rich northeastern Syria after being deployed there in the mid-2010s under the pretext of fighting Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) militants. Damascus considers their presence illegal and has repeatedly complained to the UN. The Syrian government’s stance is shared by Russia and Iran, who have aided the country in fighting terrorism.” – RT

ECONOMIC NEWS ( RED ALERT )
Powell and Yellen Say the Banking System Is Sound as Another Global Bank Teeters – “This time the global banking target is Deutsche Bank, a global behemoth we have warned about ad nauseum here at Wall Street On Parade. Deutsche Bank was a $120 dollar stock prior to the financial crisis in 2008. It closed yesterday at $9.65 in New York and is down another 10 percent in early morning trading in Europe. The weakness in Deutsche Bank is spilling over into other European bank stocks this morning in European trading with Commerzbank, UBS and Societe Generale also showing weakness.” – Pam Martens and Russ Martens – HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yellen Convenes Emergency Financial Stability Meeting On Friday As Banking Crisis Explodes – “Here comes the panic. Bloomberg just reported that Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen – who was singlehandedly responsible for stoking and restarting the bank crisis on Wednesday which until that day was easing back, with her comments that nobody in charge was even talking about a uniform deposit insurance, let alone working on one – will convene the heads of top US financial regulators Friday morning for a previously unscheduled meeting of the Financial Stability Oversight Council.” – Tyler Durden

“The Banks Are Melting”, And Signs Of A Major Credit Contraction Are Already Starting To Emerge – Michael Snyder
How the Federal Reserve Broke the Banks – “In the ’90s, I worked as a strategist at Lehman Brothers and as a senior managing director at Bear Stearns. Both collapsed during the 2008 crisis. Back then, the banks were aware of internal problems. And they hoped they would weather the storm. This month, the same scenario played out with SVB. Insiders were aware of trouble below the surface. But the downturn didn’t pass. So when the 16th-largest bank in the U.S. failed, people were quick to blame the bank and its poor management. That’s fair – and not entirely wrong. But what makes this time different from 2008 is the Federal Reserve’s role.” – Nomi Prins
What Happens When $400 Billion Isn’t Enough? – “First and foremost, the banking crisis is not over. This is quite concerning, because the Fed has pumped nearly $400 BILLION into the financial system in the last two weeks. Despite these emergency loans/ access to credit, the regional banking ETF is right back near its panic lows. What does it say about the issues in the financial system that $400 billion in additional liquidity combined with verbal backstops by the Fed/ Treasury isn’t enough to reverse the decline?” – Graham Summers, MBA
Update on the Fed’s Liquidity Support for Banks – “Was it the Swiss National Bank that Borrowed $60 Billion via “Foreign Official” Repos for the Credit Suisse takeunder?” – Wolf Richter
Bull or Bear? The Ultimate Source of Market Instability – “Everyone wants a trend they can trade for effortless gains. That may no longer be realistic. Market commentators tend to focus on Bulls and Bears and Federal Reserve policies as drivers of stock market gyrations, but there’s a far more profound dynamic working beneath these veneers: the forces of adaptation and evolution transforming the economy and society as conditions change.” – Charles Hugh Smith
Russia lifts veil on gold holdings – “The country’s bullion stockpile has continued to grow over the past year, according to the central bank’s first public report in months” -RT
Banking Crisis Sinks In- “Gold and silver consolidated recent gains before rallying to test higher ground. Analysts following relative strength indicators claim that gold and silver are overbought, but they are looking at the wrong indicator. Comex Open Interest clearly shows that there has been a pick-up in speculator positions — they are one side of OI which has increased since February by nearly 55,000 contracts. But there is still considerable upside in this indicator before it screams overbought at 600,000 contracts. The position in silver is amazing — there’s no other word for it. Open Interest is as low as it gets.” – Alasdair Macleod

SURVIVAL, PREPAREDNESS AND SELF-SUFFICIENCY NEWS
Here’s How I Know You’ll Survive This – “It’s easy to get swept away by the doom and gloom and the pending disaster of the moment. At times like this, it feels like we have annihilation bearing down on us from every angle: the economy is almost kaput, nuclear powers like Russia and China aren’t our biggest fans, and civil war could erupt at any moment. And that doesn’t even take into account random natural disasters like wildfires and hurricanes, or horrific accidents like the train derailment in Ohio.” – Daisy Luther

Living Off The Land Lessons From The Pioneers- “The notion of “living off the land” often evokes a romanticized ideal of simplicity and independence. However, the reality of this lifestyle required specific tools and resources for survival, such as a long-barreled flintlock rifle, gunpowder, lead and bullet molds, a hunting knife, an axe, awls for stitching moccasins, and iron cooking pots.” – Bob Rodgers
