How December 4th Could Trigger The “Most Violent Economic Shock In History”

Submitted by Nick Giambruno via InternationalMan.com, It was the one moment that convinced Hitler suicide was better than surrendering. On the morning of April 29, 1945, the bodies of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and his mistress were dumped like garbage into Milan’s Piazzale Loreto. A large mob of Italians quickly gathered. They pelted the former leader’s corpse with vegetables. They spat on it. They urinated on it. Some even emptied their pistols into his lifeless body. After a few...
