Shooting Ourselves In the Foot

federal reserveGary Christenson  – We did what to ourselves? Our representatives, senators, and Presidents, supposedly acting on our behalf, voted for and created what history has shown are huge monetary and fiscal mistakes.

Some will disagree, but consider this partial list:

1 – Central banking and The Federal Reserve Act: Enough money was spread around Washington D.C. to purchase the passage of this self-serving banking monstrosity. It was signed into law by President Wilson over a century ago.

David Stockman has a clear assessment and firm opinions regarding the danger and destructiveness of the Central Bank. His statement is: Continue reading “Shooting Ourselves In the Foot”

The Cost Crossroads – Is Repairing an Old Vehicle More Cost Effective Than Buying New

It is the age-old question, when is the best time to give up on a trusted car after one too many repairs and buy a shiny, new car? After building up a relationship with your old vehicle, it can often be difficult to say goodbye to your trusted steed but sometimes it’s the sensible decision.

The average lifespan of a well-maintained car can last over 200,000 miles or more than ten years. Perhaps your budget is limited and you’re not sure you can afford a new car. Finance a new car from Latitude Finance when the old car must be retired.

Let’s take a look at some of the reasons for repairing versus retiring your vehicle. Continue reading “The Cost Crossroads – Is Repairing an Old Vehicle More Cost Effective Than Buying New”

Clinton Charity Fraud Biggest Scandal in US History [Video]

shippGreg Hunter – Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp says the reason for all the crime and treason at the FBI and DOJ all boils down to one thing – the Clinton so-called “charity.”

Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton was running and is running a global financial criminal syndicate.  She was using these secret servers to conduct Clinton financial money laundering business.  The shocking thing about that is all the former directors of the CIA that have come out to support her, from Clapper to Brennan to Morell to Robert Gates supporting her being elected, knew about this criminal syndicate.

Comey was protecting it.  Lynch was protecting it.  Weissmann was protecting it.  And that is the big why.  What’s she got on these people?  Are they financial ties?  They had to be aware of this, especially the counter-intelligence units.  We know it was hacked into by foreign intelligence services because it was just hanging out there.  Hillary Clinton was running a secret server outside the Department of State for the purposes of laundering money through the criminal Clinton Foundation.” Continue reading “Clinton Charity Fraud Biggest Scandal in US History [Video]”

Federal Government is a Money Laundering Operation [Video]

fittsGreg Hunter – Financial expert and investment advisor Catherine Austin Fitts contends the Federal Government allows pension funds to be robbed. Fitts explains, “Our pension funds have real money.  Those pension funds basically finance the government and what the government is doing.  So, they buy Treasury securities, and then the government turns around and gives that money to the black budget firms.  It goes down the rabbit hole, and, meantime, what we get back in our pensions is an IOU from the government, which now we owe ourselves.

We are giving up real money, and what we are getting is an IOU from ourselves back.  If you step back and look at it at the highest level, it is a huge money laundering scheme.”

Should Facebook, Google and Twitter Be Public Utilities?

bitcoinCharles Hugh Smith – My longtime friend GFB recently suggested I revisit my position on RussiaGate, the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

I have been dismissive of the investigation because the idea that a pinprick of Facebook advertising ($100,000) could influence the sprawling ocean of public opinion struck me as preposterous.

But GFB suggested I look a bit deeper and consider the consequences of the Russian interference, however modest it might have been; and I have taken his sage advice and reconsidered.

I’ve reached the conclusion that Facebook, Google and Twitter should be operated as public utilities, not as for-profit corporations beholden solely to their shareholders and managers.

Here is my thinking: Continue reading “Should Facebook, Google and Twitter Be Public Utilities?”

Rothschild Passing Dynasty on to 7th Generation

rothschildRachel Blevins – The Rothschild banking empire will ensure that its control continues to stay within the family for a seventh generation as David de Rothschild, 75, is set to hand the role of chairman over to his son, Alexandre de Rothschild, 37, in June.

The banking dynasty has been passed between generations for the last 200 years. It was started by Mayer Amschel Rothschild as a French railway company, and five of his sons went on to establish banking businesses across Europe. Financial Times reported that the investment bank is currently pushing to “diversify from its core French and British advisory business to help it ride out less buoyant periods in Europe’s mergers and acquisitions market.” Continue reading “Rothschild Passing Dynasty on to 7th Generation”
