Response To My Open-Border Libertarian Friend On Trump's Immigration Raids

First of all I am so glad and happy to hear if Trump is considering "criminal aliens" to be ANY illegal alien who has snuck into the USA. If this is true, it's absolutely great news, not to mention hilarious. Since they all broke the law, and unlike many of our laws it is a 100% valid law, they are indeed all literal criminals. I also tell the story of 'Minuteman' founder Jim Gilchrist's 2004 speech in Garden Grove, Calif., where the host of the event asked if I'd help to serve as ad-hoc security. It was insane, hundreds of reconauista radicals surrounded the place and smashed bricks into the windshield of an old 85-year old couple, a husband and wife, who were simply trying to drive their Cadillac into the parking lot to attend the Gilchrist event. It was horrible. They were attacking peaceful patrons who simply wanted to attend the event.

Did The Fed Just Experience A “Margin Call” Moment?

For those not familiar, the reference is attributed to a scene from the movie “Margin Call” (2011, Lionsgate™) where John Tuld (Jeremy Irons) makes the sanguinary argument for dumping its portfolio of toxic holdings immediately against contradictory arguments that it’ll be seen as panicking by others with the line, “It’s not panicking if you’re first.”

That one line in fiction contains volumes as to the reality about how Wall Street, bankers, and more view the world. Which is precisely why when I read the news that Federal Reserve member, and “Regulatory Point Man” Daniel Tarullo resigned unexpectedly I just sat back in my chair thinking, “Of course he did” as that afore-mentioned scene came to mind.

Italian banks on brink of running DRY: Rome forced to bend EU rules in emergency bailout

ITALY is plotting another multibillion rescue of its beleaguered banking system, as two struggling lenders come dangerously close to running out of money.

Rome wants to inject around £4.2billion (€5bn) into Veneto Banca and Banca Popolare di Vicenza, by bypassing European rules that ban taxpayers' cash from being used to bailout banks.

The two banks are haemorrhaging cash at an alarming rate, according to the Financial Times, sending Italy into panic.

But the new so-called precautionary recapitalisation plan still needs approval from Brussels to go ahead.

Everybody’s been obsessed with “Dow 20,000” lately.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is perhaps the most widely-watched gauge of the U.S. stock market. And “20,000” is a big, fat, impressive-sounding round number. So it’s not surprising the financial media latched onto “Dow 20,000” like a dog to a bone.

The U.S. Government's Official 5-Year Plan For Infrastructure Improvement

The U.S Department of Transportation recently issued an official white paper outlining their 'Five Year Strategic Plan' for improving and funding infrastructure repair. The latest LibertyFight.com research project exposes the highlights of this nearly-200-page report. Transportation and freedom of travel, as well as the quality of of roads and infrastructure is fundamental to our very liberty, freedom of movement, and our very American identity, at least as I understand it. Restrictions on that travel, including violations of privacy, unneeded environmental restrictions, and monetary restrictions or fees that limit our resources and decrease our financial well being, are restrictions on liberty. Unfortunately, all of these things are being openly admitted and planned by our federal government. Fighting 'Climate Change' plays a pivotal role in their plan.

Undeniable Evidence: “The College Education System Is On The Fast Track To Destruction… An Obvious Sign Of Economic Crisis Waiting To Happen”

Today in America the overburdening debt and shrinking jobs market is exposing the ugly consequences of the reality that mindless attendance to higher education has drastic consequences for millions of students.

College attendance has peaked and now we are witnessing what we will call The College Meltdown… From grants and loans for various degrees across the board with little repayment viability, to the constant propaganda by high schools and the media that everyone should and needs to attend a college or university to be successful in life, the truth is being revealed… Our youth lives in an age of increasingly crushing student loan debt with five consecutive years of declining enrollment numbers.

World's 2nd Largest Stockpile Of Gold Leaves The United States

Even after the Soviet Union fell, most governments still chose to keep their gold in New York.

It was safe. America was a rich, trusted ally. Why bother moving it?

Fast forward a few decades and the world has clearly changed.

The US government is in debt up to its eyeballs. It has been caught blatantly spying on its own allies. And it’s much less predictable than ever before.

Germany was among the first out the door.

Even as early as 2013, the German government announced that they would bring back at least half of their country’s gold reserves (the second largest in the world) by the end of 2020.

Germany growth SLOWS: Merkel facing dire economy news as EU uncertainty over Trump grows

GERMANY'S economy grew at a disappointingly slow pace in the final three months last year - and at a far lower rate than Britain - data showed today.

The eurozone's powerhouse expanded by only 0.4 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2016, behind expectations of 0.5 per cent, according to initial estimates from the Federal Statistics Office.

In another blow, the GDP for the third quarter was revised lower to just 0.1 per cent.

In comparison, Britain grew by a bumper 0.6 per cent in the three months to December, as the economy continued to boom following the vote to leave the European Union (EU).

Trump To Unveil "Passive-Aggressive" Currency War With China

While one of Trump's most sincere desires, both during his campaign, and ideologically from his life prior to politics, has been to publicly declare China a currency manipulator - something he promised he would do on day one of his administration - and crack down on the "undervalued" Yuan (even though over the past 18 months, China has been scrambling to prevent further devaluation of the Yuan in light of over $1 trillion in capital outflows in recent years), lately Trump appears to have gotten second thoughts, and after backing off on his intent to negotiate the "One China" policy, now Trump is looking for a way out of engaging China directly in currency war.

GREECE could be poised to humiliate Brussels by ditching the euro and instead choosing to be tied to the US dollar, Donald Trump’s reported pick as EU ambassador has sensationally claimed.

Professor Ted Malloch revealed that senior Greek economists have enquired about the possibility of adopting the greenback if the country crashes out of the single currency.

He asserted that Athens is so desperate it is prepared to tie itself to the dollar on the same terms as the likes of Puerto Rico if it means being able to quit the eurozone.

In Setback For Government, Swiss Voters Reject Plan To End Low Taxes For Multinational Corporations

In a setback for government efforts to abolish low tax rates for thousands of multinational firms while encouraging them to stay, the Swiss voted overwhelmingly against an overhaul the country's corporate tax system. Swiss broadcaster SRF said voters rejected the tax plans by about 60% to 40%. As Reuters notes, Switzerland has been in the European Union's firing line for years because Swiss cantons have a special tax status for foreign companies that means some pay virtually no tax other than an effective federal tax of 7.8%, an incentive to incorporate and stay on Swiss soil.

Moving at the Speed of Trump

Love him or hate him, the undeniable fact is that President Donald Trump has quickly begun to sanction policies in order to actualize his vision of America’s future. True to his word, Trump is acting quickly on campaign promises and converting them into policies. In his first three weeks as president, Trump has signed a total of 22 executive orders and memorandums. These actions include things like building a border wall, restricting immigration, fighting terrorism, addressing infrastructure needs, reducing regulation, updating trade agreements, and revamping our tax structure.

The net result of his actions is that in his first three weeks, he has set into motion major changes in the way Washington does business. These actions have had an absolutely profound impact on the financial markets as a whole, moving both risk-on and risk-off asset classes to higher pricing.

Why Donald Trump Needs The Next Recession To Start As Quickly As Possible

The clock is ticking for Spotify

But if it waits too long before floating, it could face a serious cash crisis.

In March last year, the firm raised $1bn from investors at an interest rate of 5% a year, plus a discount of 20% on shares once the initial public offering (IPO) of shares takes place.

However, under the terms of the agreement, the interest rate goes up by one percentage point and the discount by 2.5 percentage points every six months until the IPO happens.

So as time goes on, Spotify must pay ever larger sums to its creditors just to settle the interest on its loan, while the amount of money it can raise from its IPO is trimmed by an ever greater amount.

Unless Mr Ek can get the better of this brutal arithmetic, the future looks tough for Spotify.

The German Bundesbank has already moved 583 tons of gold out of New York and Paris, planning to have a half of its gold back in Germany by the end of 2017, which is ahead of the 2020 plan. The rest will be split between the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Bank of England.

In this view, this Class War is the inevitable result of the asymmetry between the elite who own/control the capital and the much larger class of people whose livelihood is earned solely by their labor.

Why Food Stamps Don't Promote Healthy Eating

Unfortunately, a major problem with that shared understanding is that money is fungible. A person can redirect money put to ones use to any other use as he or she chooses.

Consider a numerical example. The average family SNAP benefit was recently reported as $256. But the vast majority of eligible families already spend more than that on food. Say that a family already spending $400 per month on food received $256 in SNAP benefits. Would it all go to food purchases? That would be very unlikely. In fact, it is possible that no SNAP dollars would be used to expand food purchases. A recipient who wanted to spend more on anything other than food, from alcohol to child care, could simply replace $256 in cash food purchases they are already making with SNAP resources, freeing up $256 in cash for whatever purpose the recipient wishes, just as if they were given cash directly.

New Vaccines Still Cause Autism and the U.S. Government Knows It

In the case of Dr. Thompson’s release of confidential documents to a Congressional subcommittee, the CDC intentionally concealed their evidence that African American boys under 36 months had a higher risk of autism after receiving the MMR vaccine. The documents also proved the CDC has know for a long time that neurological tics, indicating brain disturbances, were associated with thimerosal-containing vaccines, such as the influenza vaccine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The CDC should, collectively, be sued out of existence because of this, and those execs who signed off on deleting the negative information from their studies should be criminally charged, and convicted, serving the hardest jail time possible, to prevent this kind of damage happening to our kids ever again, in the name of Big Pharma Profits.

DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE APPROVED A WEEK AFTER CO-OWNER'S PIPELINE SPILLED 600,000 GALLONS OF OIL IN TEXAS

On January 30, 600,000 gallons (14,285 barrels) of oil spewed out of Enbridge's Seaway Pipeline in Blue Ridge, Texas, the second spill since the pipeline opened for business in mid-2016.

Seaway is half owned by Enbridge and serves as the final leg of a pipeline system DeSmog has called the “Keystone XLClone,” which carries mostly tar sands extracted from Alberta, Canada, across the U.S. at a rate of 400,000 barrels per day down to the Gulf of Mexico. Enbridge is an equity co-owner of the Dakota Access pipeline, which received its final permit needed from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on February 7 to construct the pipeline across the Missouri River and construction has resumed.

The alignment of Native American tribes, environmentalists, and others involved in the fight against Dakota Access have called themselves “water protectors,” rather than “activists,” out of concern that a pipeline spill could contaminate their drinking water source, the Missouri River.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because of the delay in the permitting process, the Dakota Pipeline's construction may well be so intensely value engineered to the point of its breaking down, and contaminating the Missouri River, as the Native American tribes and environmentalists protesting its construction have feared.

LOVING OUR SERVITUDE IN AMERICA'S PLANTATION ECONOMY

The only possible output of low social capital is rising inequality.

One of the themes I've been addressing since 2008 is the neocolonial-plantation structure of the U.S. economy. The old models of colonial exploitation that optimized plantations worked by cheap imported labor (or situated in peripheral nations with plenty of cheap labor) have, beneath the surface, been adapted to advanced capitalist democracies.

The adaptations have been so successful that not only do we not even recognize the Plantation structure--we love our servitude within it.
