1912-2016: THE WORLD ON THE EDGE FOREVER

It will be after the election when Americans realize no President has had any connection to the direction or control of America since William H. Taft was defeated by election manipulation by the Wilson democrats in 1912.

2016 is a 1912 Rhyme -- After 1912 America changed forever. Then, like now, most were oblivious as the nation lost a war to invading banking psychopaths; a bloodless war, but a violent war none the less. The nation was stabbed in the heart, never to recover; Constitutional government ceded to corporate piracy, American assets turned over to banking parasites, a people stripped of Sovereignty and reality gave way to Bread and Circuses.

Lemmings and Republicans – Alan Ned Sabrosky

So why are so many Republican leaders doing all they can do to diminish Trump and give the election to Clinton ?

For conservatives and Republicans, a win by Hillary Clinton in November would be a catastrophe — and not just because people like Miley Cyrus and Al Sharpton would not leave the country.

It would mean continued assaults on the 1st and 2nd Amendments, especially the latter. Higher taxes and more welfare. More war — Hillary Clinton’s defense secretary-in-waiting, Michelle Flournoy, has openly said as much. And it would mean her appointment of at least one justice to the US Supreme Court, and perhaps as many as four, creating a liberal block of five to seven justices that will put its stamp on the country for a generation or more.

US Stock Market Action Signals A Trump Victory

The US stock market has a good track record calling presidential races. Today, it is sending information that counts against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The performance of the S&P 500 Index has signaled the outcome of every Presidential election since Y 1984.

A gain in the benchmark for American equity in the 3 months prior to the vote has seen the incumbent party win 86% of the time since Y 1928.

Now, the benchmark is down 2.9% since 8 August with just a week until the vote on 8 November, a fact that augurs well for Donald Trump.

Citigroup bank chose Obama’s 2008 cabinet – WikiLeaks

The single biggest beneficiary was Citigroup, which was given $45 billion in cash in the form of a government stock purchase, plus a $306 billion government guarantee to back up its worthless mortgage-related assets.

One month before the presidential election of 2008, the giant Wall Street bank Citigroup submitted to the Obama campaign a list of its preferred candidates for cabinet positions in an Obama administration. This list corresponds almost exactly to the eventual composition of Barack Obama’s cabinet.

The memorandum, revealed by WikiLeaks in a recent document release from the email account of John Podesta, who currently serves as Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, was written by Michael Froman, who was then an executive with Citigroup and currently serves as US trade representative. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team.

Obamacare Forces Companies to Drop Workers from Private Insurance

By Eric Blair

We recently moved back to the mainland United States after ten years of traveling and living abroad. Our homeschooled kids are getting older and want more opportunities for learning, friendships, sports and entertainment.

Because the cost of living in America is significantly higher than we are used to, particularly the cost of healthcare, my wife renewed her nursing license in order to make extra income and provide our health insurance...

New Thug-like Behavior from Major Banks Becoming Norm

Since the big banks write the laws that regulate their own industry, which are then introduced and passed by their paid for and bought off congressional and senatorial “whores” in the US legislature, they clearly have the “home turf advantage,” since many of their defense lawyers spent a significant amount of time on Capitol Hill as interns and representatives actually jamming through and enacting these unfair and immoral banking laws in the first place, and are the only ones who know how to use all of the hidden and clandestine “loop-holes” in the first place.

"I Feel Like Pablo Escobar" - Venezuelans Resort To Weighing Cash As Hyperinflation Builds

Having thrown in the towel on hyperinflation by printing banknotes with 200-times-higher denominations, Bloomberg reports that things in Venezuela have continued to get worse with the currency now so devalued (with even simple purchases requiring so many bills) that instead of counting bills, they are weighing them.

Electronic Driver Log mandate survives court challenge

A federal mandate requiring nearly all U.S. truck operators to use electronic logging devices to track duty status has been upheld in court, meaning the December 18, 2017, compliance date remains effective. The ELD mandate rule, published December 2015, requires most truckers currently required to use paper logs to transition to an ELD by December 18, 2017. [Poster's note: This is yet another example of overreaching government trying to put the small businessman out of business with unnecessary, expensive and burdensome requirements.]

Fascism Over Farmers? The Troubling Priorities of the American Government

US Foods Holding Corporation and Sysco, the two top American food distribution giants, are laying off thousands of workers. Wal-Mart is closing stores and terminating employees. As the price of eggs, beef, cheese, and almost all agricultural products have dropped, farmers across the United States are facing financial ruin.

The ongoing glut in agricultural products is not merely the natural cycle of the market at work. Policies of the US federal government are directly linked to the low food prices. While it is clear that the ongoing agricultural surplus is very bad for the US public, the government seems to have other priorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't suppose it ever occurred to the morons in the government that they could drive food prices back up by giving the surplus food to the homeless and hungry.

FLASHBACK: Soros and the Bundy Ranch

Earthjustice is representing the Standing Rock demonstrators. Earthjustice is funded by George Soros. Black Lives Matter is present also.

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters.

A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.”

After Malheur, patriot groups claim common cause with other protest movements

As I recall several days ago an Indian lady pegged 3 shots off at the cops before they arrested(not shot)her.

Supporters call Thursday's acquittal of seven Oregon refuge occupiers a victory for protest movements of all kinds, even if the affinity that patriot groups claim isn't returned by activists of other banners.

The patriot groups voiced sympathy for such diverse potential allies as the Standing Rock Sioux, who are challenging federal land use decisions in North Dakota, and Black Lives Matter activists in Baltimore, who have taken on law enforcement's abuse of authority.

Members of the patriot community recently reached out to the Standing Rock Sioux, who are opposed to a federally approved pipeline they say could harm the tribe's water supply. Authorities have arrested 142 members of the Native American coalition that is occupying private land.

Malaysia to buy navy vessels from China in blow to U.S.

Smart move on Malaysias' part. Cheaper,more effective and not manufactured by the Pariah State.

Malaysia will sign a contract to purchase Littoral Mission Ships from China when Prime Minister Najib Razak visits Beijing next week, according to a Facebook posting by the country's Ministry of Defence.

The text of a speech to be delivered by Malaysian defense minister Hishammuddin Hussein was posted on Facebook on Tuesday, but was later removed after Reuters asked a defense ministry spokesman for comment.

VENEZUELA THROWS IN THE TOWEL ON HYPERINFLATION: WILL PRINT 200X HIGHER-DENOMINATED BILLS

While several years ago it was perhaps debatable in polite society that Venezuela’s socialist economy would collapse ultimately unleashing hyperinflation, any doubt was put to rest early this year when the IMF’s own inflationary forecast confirmed as much.

However, while the international community had long accepted the inevitable fate of Maduro’s socialist paradise, the local government sternly refused to admit reality and to avoid confirming what the local population already knew, it insisted on keeping the highest denomination bill in circulation at 100 bolivars, whose worth is approximately 8 cents on the black market, turning the most basic transactions into logistical nightmares and saddling banks with crippling money-handling costs. Economists and central bank employees say Mr. Maduro didn’t want to acknowledge the country’s inflation problem by printing bigger notes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what the Vegas odds are of this government just falling apart at the seams, and how soon, but it looks like simply a matter of time before Maduro gets thrown under the proverbial bus for the financial woes Venezuela is experiencing.

And let us not forget the US government's involvement in this. Last March, President Obama renewed sanctions on the country, via executive order, and characterising it as "a threat to National security."

Obama extends order declaring Venezuela a national security threat

And one almost has to shake one's head at the reasons given for this, considering the "No-fly" zone the FAA has just imposed on a certain area of North Dakota, to prevent any press whatsoever from reporting what is going on here in terms of the Standing Sioux's protest against a proposed pipeline here. The article goes on to say:

"In renewing the order, the president mentioned the same list of abuses cited last year: persecution of political opponents, curtailment of press freedoms, use of violence and human rights violations."

This EO now appears hysterically hypocritical and ironic, in light of current events in this country.

How HUD Makes Lousy Programs Look Great

By John Anthony

When federal agencies promote programs, like Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing, or Common Core they conduct sophisticated and often deceptive marketing campaigns that cover up their downsides.

Flowery slogans like, “transportation options are fundamental to having a shot at the American Dream,” and “Economic diversity is the path to better outcomes for all American children,” may sound moving. The truth about the programs is often disturbing...

Woodward On Clinton Foundation “It’s Corrupt”

He’s correct: The Clinton Foundation is corrupt, and voters should be troubled by Clinton’s role in the unethical pay-for-play scandals.

Voters have been concerned about Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s involvement in the scandal-ridden Clinton Foundation.

Liberal journalist Bob Woodward legitimized those concerns Sunday on Fox News by pointing to the Foundation’s “pay-for-play” scandals while Clinton served as secretary of state as something that should trouble voters.

Moody's Warns Deutsche Bank Is Dangerously Close To Falling Below Its "Default Point"

Moody’s Capital Markets Research issued a damning verdict on Deutsche Bank earlier this week. In a research report put together by the credit agency’s ‘Analytics’ research division, Moody’s analysts write that Deutsche Bank expected default frequency remains at one of the highest levels in the banking industry, despite the bank’s efforts to shore up its capital position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Duutsche Bank's very fragile situation is "the canary in the coal mine" here; if it goes down, it will bring the world banking system down with it, including trillions in derivatives.

For the first time since 2001, Apple's annual revenue has declined year over year, falling from $233.7 billion in 2015 to $215.6 billion in the 2016 fiscal year. That 7.7 percent decline marks the first annual revenue drop since 2001, largely due to the continued decline in iPhone sales, down 5 percent year over year.

We Now Have Proof Obamacare Was Designed to Fail... and Here's Why

The oligarchy runs our society with Problem - Reaction - Solution. If anything, these leaks have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the two-party system is an illusion and the whole construct is one huge pay-for-play corporate sham. Obamacare was always meant to destroy the private health care system and usher in single-payer, government run socialist medicine. It was designed that way... and it's "working".

Failed weapons systems cost Pentagon $58 billion over two decades

The Pentagon loves to throw good money after bad ? to the tune of nearly $60 billion on failed big-ticket weapons systems over the last two decades, according to a new internal Department of Defense review.

From the Army’s Future Combat Systems (FCS) that focused on fighting the last war to its RAH-66 Comanche stealth helicopters that never quite got off the ground, between 1997 and October 2016, the Pentagon invested $58 billion on weapons technology it never received. That doesn’t include the boondoggle that is the F-35 jet, which was finally declared“ready for combat” at the beginning of August.

GOLDMAN SACHS ENDORSES HILLARY CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT

He’s with her. On Sunday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton earned the endorsement of Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein—an endorsement she had been working toward for years.
As was revealed by Wikileaks, Hillary Clinton spent the run up to her presidential campaign giving speeches to Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street banks, where she praised their talents and explained her positions on financial regulation.

On October 24, 2013, Clinton told Goldman Sachs that Dodd-Frank had to be done mostly for “political reasons” because Congress needed to look like it was doing something about the crisis. She said, “There’s nothing magic about regulations, too much is bad, too little is bad. How do you get to the golden key, how do we figure out what works? And the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absolute absence of) surprise here.

The elite rarely eat their own; the financial industry will definitely fall in line here, because it collectively understands that the wars she will generate if/when she steals the election, will generate enormous profits for it.

ObamaCare Is Sick, And Getting Sicker, Report Finds

But to work, ObamaCare had to also bring in more young and healthy people to offset the costs of the older and sicker and keep insurance premiums down. Otherwise, the market would enter into a "death spiral," in which higher premiums drive more healthy people out of the market, pushing rates up still further.

That was precisely what happened in several states that had already experimented with ObamaCare-style insurance reforms. And it's why ObamaCare included an individual mandate and the sizable penalty for not signing up.

It's clearly not working as promised. Enrollment data released by the administration in early March shows that just 28% of ObamaCare enrollees are 18-34 years old. That's the same share as in ObamaCare's first year, despite a huge increase in the penalty for not having insurance.

Obama might just stay on for another term. He has all the experience it needs to create more chaos and more division to conquer than any of his predecessors. He is also an obedient servant to those that pull the strings and watch through the eye on top of the pyramid, so clearly depicted in the US dollar bill, the symbol for Zionist-Freemason total hegemony. But importantly, he, like Hillary, would most likely not hesitate to push the Red Bottom, when asked to do so by their masters.

Deutsche Bank WARNING: Fears dismal quarter results will trigger global crash' TOMORROW

Bad news could spark a sell-off contagion that could lead to another global financial meltdown and a bail out by Angela Merkel's government despite her opposition to German state intervention.

Analysts are warning that ultra high frequency trades triggered by machines could lead to a perfect storm and could have serious knock-on effects for other banks exposed to the firm's risky assets book.

Germany's largest lender has been hit by unprecedented sell-offs losing 52 per cent of its value in just a year and is struggling to ward off its crisis.

The bank has announced massive job cuts ahead of a £11.4billion fine from the US Justice Department.

And it has been muted that up to 5,000 jobs could go in America alone.

Every institution in America is sold out, corrupted and politically rigged to favor Big Government and Big Business. "America is a lost country," explains Paul Craig Roberts. "The total corruption of every public and the private institution is complete. Nothing remains but tyranny. And lies. Endless lies."

CNN, Reuters and the Associated Press are all now shameless promoters of every big lie across every sector of society, from vaccines and GMOs to elections and politics. The federal government itself is incapable of doing anything other than lying, and it has totally corrupted the entire realm of science by pulling the strings of funding via the National Institutes of Health and the NSF.

The Trump movement is an existential threat to the established order that consistently adopts the agenda and practices from the cabal of the NWO globalists. It is because of this opposition to the transnational ruling despots that the vicious, deceitful and unending assault on Trump and his followers has been unleashed, since real meaningful change cannot be allowed that would reverse the systematic destruction of Western Civilization.
