Goodbye To The Internet: Interference By Governments Is Already Here

Authored by Philip Giraldi via The Strategic Culture Foundation, There is a saying attributed to the French banker Nathan Rothschild that "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes its laws." Conservative opinion in the United States has long suspected that Rothschild was right and there have been frequent calls to audit the Federal Reserve Bank based on the presumption that it has not always acted in support of the actual interests of the American people. That such an...

Russia Develops Shotgun Drone To Combat Drone Attacks 

On March 12, the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property published the registration of a new unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with a shotgun embedded into its airframe.

How To Identify A Globalist Criminal

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com, In my work analyzing the behavior and motives of globalists I often hear people question the validity of the label. Sometimes this is done by those who are purely uneducated about the background of what I can only call an organized cabal or criminal syndicate. Sometimes it is done by dishonest people who are seeking to sow the seeds of doubt. To be clear, yes, globalists are a very real group with a very real agenda, and this agenda is not...

Mueller-Dämmerung: It Will Not Be “The End Of Everything”, Unless…

Authored by CJ Hopkins via The Unz Review, If Nietzsche was right, and what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger, we can thank the global capitalist ruling classes, the Democratic Party, and the corporate media for four more years of Donald Trump. The long-awaited Mueller report is due any day now, or so they keep telling us. Once it is delivered, and does not prove that Trump is a Russian intelligence asset, or that he personally conspired with Vladimir Putin to steal the presidency from...

A Major Bank Capitulates: “This May Be The Time For Helicopter Money Drops”

Long before the Fed was humiliated into reversing its hawkish rate hike policy in January and then again in March, we published - back in June 2015 - "The Blindingly Simple Reason Why The Fed Is About To Engage In Policy Error", in which we predicted, correctly, that the neutral rate of interest is far too low to allow a lengthy tightening campaign by the Federal Reserve, as the real Fed Funds rate would promptly rise above the neutral rate, further depressing demand, resulting in a policy...

US Housing Hits A Brick Wall: “The House Price Deceleration Is Staggering”

Submitted by Mark Hanson RedFin puts out a monthly home sales report, which contains a lot of great data. The chart below shows Feb 2018 year-over-year price growth, which was off the charts, compared to Feb 2019 year-over-year growth, which was very weak.

The financial situation of Dogus Holdings, the owner of the "Salt Bae Steakhouse" chain, is becoming precarious.

US On The Hunt For Iranian “Ghost Tankers”

Authored by Irina Slav via OilPrice.com, When Washington announced the return of economic sanctions against Iran, the main idea was pretty clear: cut exports of vital oil to zero to paralyze the economy and prompt a change in government. Waivers followed, however, as well as reports that, despite the sanctions, Iran was shipping more oil abroad than the amounts allowed under the waivers. Oil data provider TankerTrackers.com first reported last year that Iranian tankers were turning off...
