Bankers And Their Pandemic And Voting Scams

This first video I want to share should be titled Larry Fink and Augustin Carstens’ Excellent Pandemic. Larry Fink is the CEO of Blackrock which has $9 trillion under management. Augustin Carstens is the General Manager of the Bank for International Settlements which is the central bank for central banks like the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England.

The video has clips of both Fink and Carstens explaining why totalitarianism is good for bankers. John Titus explains to us that the bankers want to make their Pandemic of fear continue until they can take away our paper money and give us Central Bank Digital Cash. Totalitarians love digital money because you must have permission from your central bank to buy or sell. In the Bible this was called the Mark of the Beast which initially will be your vaccine passport. If their fear porn Pandemic succeeds, you will not be allowed to work, to buy food or pay rent without permission. No freedom for you, forever.

$10,000 INVESTED IN DEFENSE STOCKS WHEN AFGHANISTAN WAR BEGAN NOW WORTH ALMOST $100,000

IF YOU PURCHASED $10,000 of stock evenly divided among America’s top five defense contractors on September 18, 2001 — the day President George W. Bush signed the Authorization for Use of Military Force in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks — and faithfully reinvested all dividends, it would now be worth $97,295.

This is a far greater return than was available in the overall stock market over the same period. $10,000 invested in an S&P 500 index fund on September 18, 2001, would now be worth $61,613.

That is, defense stocks outperformed the stock market overall by 58 percent during the Afghanistan War.

China dumps US Treasuries for fifth consecutive month, sending holdings to lowest level since February 2017

China’s holdings of US government debt have fallen to their lowest level since February 2017, following a fifth successive month of net US Treasury sales in September, according to a US government report.

China sold US$6.22 billion of US Treasury securities in September, lowering its total holdings to US$1.062 trillion, according to the latest monthly Treasury International Capital (TIC) report from the US Department of the Treasury.

Analysts cautioned that the reduction in China’s US Treasury holdings was not necessarily a sign it was reducing its overall US dollar-denominated securities holdings, since it could buy other assets such as stocks or corporate bonds instead.

Russian budget airline drops orders for Boeing 737 MAX airliners after planes crashed & killed hundreds sparking safety fears

The head of popular Russian budget airline Pobeda has revealed that it has canceled its contract for the troubled Boeing 737 MAX plane, a month after it was rumored that the company had pulled out of an agreement to buy twenty.

Speaking to news agency RIA Novosti, CEO Andrey Kalmykov confirmed that it had opted to cancel the deals and would not be forced to pay a penalty. The airline agreed to buy the planes in 2019.

Boeing 737 MAX flights were suspended worldwide March 2019 when Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed, killing 157 people. Prior to that, in October 2018, 189 people died when an Indonesian Lion Air 747 MAX fell into the sea. In both cases, Boeing admitted that there was a malfunction in the airliner’s Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System.

GOP Rep. Fitzpatrick says Pelosi doesn’t have votes to block infrastructure bill on House floor

Moderate Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick said Monday that there are likely enough GOP votes for the bipartisan infrastructure bill to overcome the number of Democrats vowing to block it, as centrists from both parties pressure House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring the legislation for a vote.

Fitzpatrick, the co-chairman of the House Problem Solvers Caucus, also warned that moderate Republicans could turn against the compromise legislation passed by the Senate if Pelosi, D-Calif., delays the bill's consideration or ties it to Democrats' $3.5 trillion spending plan they hope to pass via budget reconciliation.

As U.S. Retreats, China Looks To Back Taliban With Afghan Mining Investments

The U.S. defeat in Afghanistan threatens to undermine already limited U.S. credibility and geostrategic leverage. With the ascendance of the Taliban, the energy infrastructure and natural resources of the region are now more in jeopardy than ever since 2001, the year the U.S. chased out the Taliban regime.

While the Taliban takes stock of the natural resources and U.S.-funded infrastructure now at their disposal, strategic competitors including China and Russia will eye lucrative development projects that boost their regional ambitions.

Infrastructure bill contains highway expansion to connect 12 military bases in five southern states

A proposed stretch of interstate highway that would connect a dozen military bases between Texas and Georgia made its way into the $1 trillion infrastructure bill passed by the Senate this week with the expectation it will improve access to bases located in some of the more isolated stretches of the South.

The highway is a “major step in advancing Interstate 14 as a future corridor for handling freight movement, military facility connectivity, coastal evacuation and sparking economic development,” said John Thompson, chairman of the Gulf Coast Strategic Highway Coalition, a group of community leaders who advocate for the highway.

More Employers Seeking Vaccinated Applicants

By B.N. Frank

An increasing number of people worldwide, including health care workers, are opposed to vaccine mandates. Vaccine side effects, injuries, deaths have been reported for decades. They continue to be reported about the COVID jabs as well. According to one attorney, this will eventually lead to a “tidal wave of lawsuits”. Nevertheless, some employers (including Delta Airlines) are making it very clear that job applicants must be vaccinated for COVID-19...

Biden's Abysmal Day Just Got Worse: OPEC+ Snubs Plea For More Oil, Says "No Need" To Pump More

A day that was already the worst in Biden long political career, just got worse when moments ago Reuters reported that just days after the US president showed just how dependent on foreign oil the formerly energy independent US has become, when on Aug 11 he begged OPEC+ to pump more in order to lower the price of gas at the pump, OPEC+ responded that it sees no need to release more oil into the market at present, despite US calls. As a reminder, OPEC+ is currently planning to raise output by 400k BPD a month beginning in August until all the current reductions of 5.8mln BPD are removed, and will not accelerate its schedule despite Biden's pleading.

In response oil, which had tumbled today after the latest dismal Chinese economic data, managed to modest rebound as OPEC+ clearly refuses to cooperate with the Biden admin.

And so it begins – Thousands of cattle are literally dropping dead from starvation in Northern Mexico

A lot of people didn’t think that it would ever come to this. Many simply assumed that conditions would return to “normal” eventually and that everything would work out just fine somehow. But here in the middle of 2021, everything is definitely not fine. In fact, cows are literally dropping dead from starvation in northern Mexico in very large numbers. This isn’t the sort of thing that is supposed to happen in North America.

How Goldman Sachs exploits ‘woke values’ to pursue its own profit and power

In my favorite episode of “South Park,” two sleazy salesmen sell shoddy condos in the glitzy ski town of “Asspen” to the lower middle-class residents of South Park. Their pitch is intoxicatingly simple: “Try saying it. ‘I’ve got a nice little place in Asspen.’ Rolls off the tongue nicely doesn’t it?” Eventually, the residents open up their checkbooks and buy the scam.

This is exactly what happened when recruiters from Goldman Sachs showed up at Harvard in 2006. As a 20-year-old, I fell for the trick: I joined Goldman that summer as an intern. By July, I had learned many of the firm’s unspoken traditions, like how, instead of wearing Rolexes, the managing directors sported cheap digital watches with black rubber wrist straps, prominently juxtaposed against their expensive tailor-made dress shirts.

Wall Street Is the Most Bullish on Stocks in Almost Two Decades

It’s been two decades since Wall Street analysts were this upbeat.

About 56% of all recommendations on S&P 500 firms are listed as buys, the most since 2002. It’s one more data point that shows the extent of the euphoria sweeping markets after a blockbuster earnings season.

While analysts are historically a bullish bunch, they’re turning even more optimistic in the face of relentless stock-market gains and corporate earnings that topped even the highest expectations. For all the concerns about the delta variant, China’s regulatory crackdown or waning Federal Reserve stimulus, it hasn’t made much of a dent yet on stock prices.

“The Great Reset” Is Here: Follow the Money. “Insane Lockdown” of the Global Economy, “The Green Agenda”

The top-down reorganization of the world economy by a cabal of technocratic corporativists, led by the group around the Davos World Economic Forum– the so-called Great Reset or UN Agenda 2030– is no future proposal. It is well into actualization as the world remains in insane lockdown for a virus. The hottest investment area since onset of the coronavirus global lockdowns is something called ESG investing.

This highly subjective and very controlled game is dramatically shifting global capital flows into a select group of “approved” corporate stocks and bonds. Notably it advances the dystopian UN Agenda 2030 or the WEF Great Reset agenda. The development is one of the most dangerous and least understood shifts in at least the past century.

A Slew Of Empty Shelf Store Photographs From ANP Readers Show America Falling Apart As A Truckers Shutdown Over 'Papers Please' At State Lines Would Push America Off The Cliff

We first want to thank everybody who has sent in photographs of empty store shelves as seen within this story. Susan Duclos will be doing a follow-up to this story this coming week as well, so if while you're out and about doing your shopping and you run into empty store shelves in your own areas, please send them over to ANP at [email protected] and we'll feature them in that story.

We also wanted to thank everybody who has faithfully and lawfully served in the US Military and Law Enforcement all across this great nation, with many sacrificing their lives to defend America and defending others all across the planet. As we're witnessing in Afghanistan now with the fall and the slaughter of the innocent as a tyrannical regime advances, while many Democrats want to dismantle law enforcement and speak ill of the Military, this classic quote by Michael Marks has never been so true.:

Unemployed Tennessee residents sue state, governor to reinstate unemployment benefits

Seven Tennessee residents have filed a lawsuit against Gov. Bill Lee for stopping federal unemployment benefits earlier this year.

Lee pulled out of the benefits program at the start of July – more than two months before it was set to expire. Tennessee was one of several states to make the decision, citing it as an impediment to economic growth following a sluggish year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Weeks later, some families say they are struggling without the benefits, the Tennessean reported. The families claim in the suit that they have applied to hundreds of jobs, most without receiving any response.

Russia may ban petrol exports if domestic prices keep rising – former energy minister

The Russian government is ready to take tough measures to keep a lid on domestic fuel prices, Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said. This includes stopping exports of petrochemicals if the situation gets worse, he warned.

The official clarified that the potential ban would impact traders, not the country’s crude producers.

“We expect the market to improve in the near future,” the former energy minister said, highlighting the current downward trend in exchange prices.

Novak urged oil companies to assist with making the domestic oil market stable, adding that a steady increase in petroleum supply would help.

Britain's Wealthiest Plutocrats Are Largely Foreign-Born and Jewish

The United Kingdom, the nation with the most billionaires per capita, is governed by a largely foreign, heavily Jewish plutocracy.

Figures such as Richard Branson are commonly associated with British wealth, but his net worth pales in comparison to these individuals and families.

A Sky News report on the wealthiest British citizens in 2021 reveals that individuals of Jewish ancestry, who make up a mere 1.7% of the UK’s population, are wildly overrepresented among the richest top 10.

Topping the list is media and music mogul Sir Lenoard Blavatnik, who now controls a £23 billion Pound fortune. Blavatnik is an international Jew who was born in the Ukraine and holds both American and UK citizenship. He influences politics in both countries. Blavatnik helps bankroll both the Conservative Party (also known as the Tories) in London and the neo-conservative wing of the Republican Party in America.

Chip Delivery Times Hit 20 Weeks as Semiconductor Shortage Continues

New reports from Bloomberg and conflicting reports on whether the AMD Radeon 6600 XT is available to buy on launch day paint a complicated picture of what’s going on in the semiconductor world right now. The ongoing chip shortage is not one crisis but several, and it has different characteristics depending on the kind of chips you need to buy.

For auto manufacturers and other companies that rely on large numbers of comparatively old microcontrollers, graphics drivers, and other types of silicon, things are not improving. Bloomberg reports that chip delivery times increased by eight days in July, up to 20.2 weeks. This means that chips ordered today won’t be delivered until January 2022 — and that’s the good news. If you drill down into microcontrollers, specifically, lead times have risen to 26.5 weeks. Chips ordered today in these segments may not be available until late February. In more positive news, lead times have decreased for power management chips, specifically.

Inflation’s Assault on the American Family

I moved aside and watched our twelve-year-old van pull into the driveway. My wife opened the door, smiled, and told me she got the job. Putting the basketball down, I hugged her and told her I was proud. The job was a part-time evening and weekend position at the local country health food store, a good fit considering my wife’s interests. But deep down, a sense of sadness and partial defeat rolled over me. The ten-year period leading up to this moment had found my wife solely focused on homemaking and homeschooling our three children, a responsibility so demanding that few ever attempt it—even fewer see it through. But there we stood, eleven years into our marriage, resigned to the fact my single income was starting to fall short. Not due to any pay decrease, change in spending habits, or some major unforeseen event, but the result of government lockdowns and central banking monetary policies. I wanted blood.

Beirut Goes Dark As Economic Tailspin Sees Dire Fuel & Electricity Shortages 

Starting Wednesday night Lebanon's Central Bank announced that fuel subsidies have been halted, already at a moment where there's been scarcity of both gas and electricity. Fuel prices are expected to at least quadruple, leading to a national scramble for fuel, exacerbating rolling blackouts akin to what's become the tragic "norm" of recent years in neighboring war-torn Syrian.

International reports are underscoring that the enduring economic crisis beginning in 2019 which sparked a year of mass protests and a currency crisis, and subsequent failed attempts to stave off total collapse amid a drastic "shock" change in government, are now coming to a head, sending already impoverished areas of the country of nearly seven million spiraling into steadily worsened conditions.

Plunging Crop Supplies Send Prices Soaring And Reignite Food Inflation Fears, WASDE Reports

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report was released Thursday afternoon and pointed to declining grain supplies that sent grain futures prices higher and will keep food inflation in focus.

The closely watched supply and demand report slashed estimates for corn yields and stockpiles. World inventories for wheat were reported near a five-year low.

Grain and oilseed futures soared to a near-decade high earlier this year but have been in a holding pattern for the last month, awaiting new reports on the outlook for upcoming U.S. harvests. A megadrought and back-to-back heat waves have plagued the corn belt and the U.S. West for much of the summer.

"Winter Is Coming": Chipmakers In Longest Slide Since 2018 As Morgan Stanley Downgrades Semis

The semiconductor space has long been viewed as one of the best leading indicators of the modern technological economy (and capital markets), and with good reason: it was the first sector to bottom in March 2020 when it became apparent that China and various western central banks would inject trillions into the global economy, and had enjoyed a nearly relentless upward climb since then peaking just over a week ago on August 4, but then something snapped...

... and as shown in the next chart, the Semi Index is broadly lower again, having dropped for six consecutive sessions - the longest such streak since the October 2018 Fed "policy error" when stocks cracked after Powell threatened to tighten far more than markets expected, only to end his hiking cycle prematurely just two months later, resulting in the first bear market in a decade.
