Wow! Voter fraud? What a surprise!

U.S. Has 3.5 Million More Registered Voters Than Live Adults – A Red Flag For Electoral Fraud
August 18, 2017

American democracy has a problem – a voting problem.

clip_image001

As reported by the National Review’s Deroy Murdock, who did some numbers-crunching of his own, “some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud.”

Murdock counted Judicial Watch’s state-by-state tally and found that 462 U.S. counties had a registration rate exceeding 100% of all eligible voters. That’s 3.552 million people, who Murdock calls “ghost voters.” And how many people is that? There are 21 states that don’t have that many people.

Nor are these tiny, rural counties or places that don’t have the wherewithal to police their voter rolls.

California, for instance, has 11 counties with more registered voters than actual voters. Perhaps not surprisingly — it is deep-Blue State California, after all — 10 of those counties voted heavily for Hillary Clinton.

Rickards Exposes The Elite’s Plan To Freeze The Financial System
August 17, 2017

Today’s complacent markets are faced with a number of potentially destabilizing shocks.

Any one of them could potentially lead to another financial crisis. And the next crisis could see draconian measures by governments that most people are not prepared for today.

You’ll see what I mean in a moment.

clip_image002

But first, what are the catalysts that possibly trigger the next financial crisis?

First off, a debt ceiling crisis is just over a month away. If the ceiling isn’t raised by Sept. 29, the federal government is likely to default on at least some of its bills.

If a deal isn’t reached, it could rock markets and possibly trigger a major recession.

CONFUSION: Maxine Waters accuses Ben Carson of being ‘white-wing nationalist’
August 18, 2017

Maxine Waters’s latest rant against Donald Trump and his administration was so unhinged, it amounted to word spittle that could be hear on any street corner in L.A.

Appearing before the Los Angeles Community Review Board, Waters launched into Trump, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

No it is not, the deadliest threat is when goat heads with crossed wires and agendas make up fake facts and have a platform (that once upon a time actually reported real facts) to spew bullshit to skew perception. I don’t think these people realize the further from reality they become, the further those with common sense and traditional values will dig in their heals. As a result, Civil War is becoming a very real possibility. I would bet on the side which is armed with rational thought and real bullets…and supports The Constitution!

CNN’s Chris Cuomo: “Extreme Right Is The Number One Domestic Terror Threat In The U.S.”
August 17, 2017

CNN’s Chris Cuomo is a man who likes to make up his own ‘facts’. Remember back in October 2016 when he told his CNN viewers that it was “illegal to possess” documents published by Wikileaks but continued that “it’s different for the media…so everything you learn about this, you’re learning from us.” That’s one way to keep a captive audience and control messaging…just scare them into viewership by telling them it’s illegal to consume information directly from their original sources…

Unfortunately, despite being mercilessly mocked on social media, Cuomo didn’t learn his lessons from his Wikileaks mishap. Just this morning Cuomo decided to drop another creative ‘fact’ on viewers saying “the number one domestic terror threat in the U.S. is the extreme right…just look at the stats.” Courtesy of the Daily Caller:

“If you take anarchists at their worst, do you have malefactor? Do you have criminals in their ranks? Do you have people who do violent things? Yes, yes, yes, yes. That is not a moral equivalency to the KKK,” Cuomo said. “It’s certainly not an equivalent to what we see on the right. Just look at the stats. The number one domestic terror threat in the U.S. is the extreme right. There is not even a close second.”

“That’s all they’re about is hate. Two out of three people on this panel they don’t want to exist!”

Which we guess is a completely accurate statement if you ignore the 2,996 people killed in the 9/11 attacks, 49 people killed in the Orlando night club shooting, 14 people killed in San Bernadino, etc.

What could possibly go wrong?

Millennials are financing everything from bed sheets to concert tickets
August 17, 2017

Millennials want luxury sheets, Peloton exercise bikes and music festival tickets, but they don’t always have enough cash or a desire to put them on a credit card. So they are turning to an even more expensive method of payment: financing. In recent years, payment companies including PayPal PYPL, -1.49% Affirm and Bread have created installment plans for retailers that give consumers the option to finance the weirdest purchases over time.

See also: Young Americans want to live like millionaires (on the cheap)

These payment methods have taken hold at a time when millennials have been more reluctant than their parents to use credit cards. Millennials had about two credit cards each on average last year, according to the credit reporting company Experian. That’s compared with about three for boomers and an average of 2.5 for members of Generation X. Now, they don’t have to wait to be able to afford that Vitamix blender.

What could go wrong? Quite a lot, consumer advocates say.

Social Security Requires A Bailout That’s 60x Greater Than The 2008 Emergency Bank Bailout
August 11, 2017

A few weeks ago the Board of Trustees of Social Security sent a formal letter to the United States Senate and House of Representatives to issue a dire warning: Social Security is running out of money.

Given that tens of millions of Americans depend on this public pension program as their sole source of retirement income, you’d think this would have been front page news…

… and that every newspaper in the country would have reprinted this ominous projection out of a basic journalistic duty to keep the public informed about an issue that will affect nearly everyone.

But that didn’t happen.

The story was hardly picked up.

It’s astonishing how little attention this issue receives considering it will end up being one of the biggest financial crises in US history.

Stamford Officials Eye Legislation That Would Outlaw ‘Distracted Walking’
August 16, 2017

STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Drivers aren’t the only ones who could be fined for texting or talking.

Now, there’s a proposal to keep pedestrians safe that could set off a national trend.

Crossing busy Broad Street in downtown Stamford can be a challenge, even if you’re not staring down at text messages on your cell phone.

“I see mothers pushing their babies, they’re texting and I’m like how do y’all do all this at this intersection? That scares me,” Dawn Thompson said.

Why Was This ‘Crowd Hire’ Company Recruiting $25 An Hour ‘Political Activists’ In Charlotte Last Week?
August 17, 2017

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was “blame on both sides” for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend.

Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based “public relations firm specializing in innovative events” to serve as agitators in counterprotests.

The ad was posted by a company called “Crowds on Demand” and offered $25 per hour to “actors and photographers” to participate in events in the “Charlotte, NC area.” While the ad didn’t explicitly define a role to be filled by its crowd of “actors and photographers” it did ask applicants to comment on whether they were “ok with participating in peaceful protests.” Here is the text from the ad:

Actors and Photographers Wanted in Charlotte

Crowds on Demand, a Los Angeles-based Public Relations firm specializing in innovative events, is looking for enthusiastic actors and photographers in the Charlotte, NC area to participate in our events. Our events include everything from rallies to protests to corporate PR stunts to celebrity scenes. The biggest qualification is enthusiasm, a “can-do” spirit. Pay will vary by event but typically is $25+ per hour plus reimbursements for gas/parking/Uber/public transit.

Will The August 21st Solar Eclipse Begin A Period Of “40 Days And 40 Nights” For America?
August 14, 2017

Next Monday, we are going to witness one of the strangest events in U.S. history. This will be the first total solar eclipse to ever be seen only in the United States and nowhere else. Millions upon millions of people are going to flock to areas of the country where the full eclipse will be visible, but everyone in the continental United States is going to be able to see at least a partial eclipse. There are lots of very unusual numbers associated with this eclipse, but in this article I want to focus on the number 40, and as this article unfolds you will start to understand why.

Our planet is the only place where you can view a total solar eclipse, and that is because our sun and our moon appear to be the same size in the sky. Of course the sun is much, much larger than the moon, but because the sun is approximately 400 times farther away than the moon they appear to us to be nearly the same size…

The sun and moon appear the same size in Earth’s sky because the sun’s diameter is about 400 times greater – but the sun is also about 400 times farther away.

At this particular moment in Earth’s history – although the sun’s diameter is about 400 times larger than that of the moon – the sun is also about 400 times farther away. So the sun and moon appear nearly the same size as seen from Earth. And that’s why we on Earth can sometimes witness that most amazing of spectacles, a total eclipse of the sun.

Autonomous Cars Could Impact Nearly 16 Million Jobs In U.S., Commerce Department Finds
August 14, 2017

The technology required to enable fully autonomous cars is not here yet. You’ll get no argument from us on that point.

Despite the loftiest of wishes from companies like Uber and Tesla, for now autonomous cars can’t seem to stop running red lights…which is a slight issue. And that says nothing about the societal transformation required to fully adopt such technology which will likely span a generation. Let’s face it, just like grandma refused to adopt the e-commerce revolution, there are certain people who will simply never trust a computer to drive them around.

All that said, it is inevitable that, at some point in the future, autonomous vehicles will be the norm. And, when that day comes, it will undoubtedly wreak further havoc on a U.S. job market where 95 million people have already decided they would rather sit at home than look for a job…at least according to a new study from the U.S. Commerce Department.

According to the study released last week, nearly 4 million jobs in the U.S. could be completely eliminated by autonomous vehicle technology while closer 16 million will be radically transformed.

Sekulow: DOJ Talking Points on Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting Redacted
August 9, 2017

A lawsuit against the Justice Department has revealed new details about the infamous tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton.

Due to a Freedom of Information Act request from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), the DOJ released 413 pages of documents related to the June 27, 2016 meeting.

The documents revealed that reporters were reluctant to cover the the meeting, and also that Lynch used an alias for official DOJ emails, including those related to the meeting.

Jay Sekulow, an attorney for President Trump and chief counsel for the ACLJ, said the documents also show that there were email exchanges between the FBI and the DOJ, and the DOJ and the White House, regarding the controversial meeting.

Confirmed: Police Told to Stand Down in Charlottesville—Did Nothing as War Broke Out
August 13, 2017

Charlottesville, VA — The events that unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia this Saturday were tragic, hateful, insidious and even deadly. Saturday will go down in history as the day America’s hate reared its ugly face and proved to the world that this country is being divided — to be conquered. Adding fuel to the fire of hatred and violence were politicians who told police not to intervene and allowed the unchecked carnage to unfold before their eyes.

The stand down was confirmed by the ACLU who quoted a police source saying, “We’ll not intervene until given command to do so.”

CNN Ditches Its Polling Firm of More Than 10 Years Amid ‘Fake News’ Charges
August 12, 2017

CNN announced that after ten years, it parted ways this week with its longtime polling firm, ORC International, amid charges of fake news and faulty polls.

ORC’s chief marketing officer Ana Mackay-Sim confirmed that CNN “did not renew their polling contract” with ORC International. The polling firm worked with CNN since 2006 and had continued their partnership after the 2016 presidential election until late April.

“We are thankful for the opportunity we have had to partner with CNN in the past and wish them well in their future polling work,” Mackay-Sim told Politico. “We have no further comment at this time.”

CNN has, instead, decided to switch to the major survey-research firm SSRS.

North Korea’s Missile Success Is Linked to Ukrainian Plant, Investigators Say
August 14, 2017

North Korea’s success in testing an intercontinental ballistic missile that appears able to reach the United States was made possible by black-market purchases of powerful rocket engines probably from a Ukrainian factory with historical ties to Russia’s missile program, according to an expert analysis being published Monday and classified assessments by American intelligence agencies.

The studies may solve the mystery of how North Korea began succeeding so suddenly after a string of fiery missile failures, some of which may have been caused by American sabotage of its supply chains and cyberattacks on its launches. After those failures, the North changed designs and suppliers in the past two years, according to a new study by Michael Elleman, a missile expert at the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

Such a degree of aid to North Korea from afar would be notable because President Trump has singled out only China as the North’s main source of economic and technological support. He has never blamed Ukraine or Russia, though his secretary of state, Rex W. Tillerson, made an oblique reference to both China and Russia as the nation’s “principal economic enablers” after the North’s most recent ICBM launch last month.

Analysts who studied photographs of the North’s leader, Kim Jong-un, inspecting the new rocket motors concluded that they derive from designs that once powered the Soviet Union’s missile fleet. The engines were so powerful that a single missile could hurl 10 thermonuclear warheads between continents.

MSM Spins Tragic News Just As Washington Declares WAR ON BITCOIN
August 13, 2017

Bitcoin is targeted, so stack up on gold & silver before things really get out-of-hand! Here’s the latest on the battles against cryptocurrencies.

The United States has Bitcoin firmly under a microscope. From ledger data, server traffic, hardware and software penetrative capabilities, network intercepts, and it’s all fresh off the presses. There’s more to it than that, especially since I’m a tech expert, however, I want people to read this very important information, not lull themselves to sleep on some boring techno-academia, so we’ll go light on tech and heavy on governmental burden, and this one shall be just fine.

This War on Bitcoin gets worse. This war is in the name of combating terrorism through illicit Bitcoin use. ‘Merica is bringin’ down the hammer on cryptos.

Goldbugs and silverbugs rejoice: we live to fight another day. Our powder is dry, and regardless of what happens, the gold and silver you can reach and touch at a moments notice, it seems, right now, is better than any digital, un-backed fiat currency that depends on a complex system prone to outages and failures. Yes I get it. People say “it’s backed because it is digitally mined, solving complex math problems that prove it has to perform math to mine. This is indeed true.

One Dead, Multiple Injured After Car Rams Through Pizzeria In France
August 14, 2017

A young girl has died and multiple others have been seriously injured after a car is said to have intentionally rammed through a pizzeria in the French town of Sept-Sorts.

UPDATE 17:38 EST: Initial reports stated that the age of the girl killed was eight-years-old. New reports say this is incorrect and that she is actually twelve according to L’Express. Authorities have also stated that the man involved attempted to kill himself on Sunday. The investigation has been passed on to the gendarmes and is still ongoing.

UPDATE 16:45 EST: Police now claim that the suspect in the incident is totally “unknown” to both police and the French intelligence services.

UPDATE 16:20 EST: According to French broadcaster RTL police are saying the man wanted to commit suicide, had weapons in his vehicle and is 39-years-old. Authorities are saying the motive for the act is not terrorism according to early investigations. Five of those injured in the attack remain in critical condition.

JUDGE ORDERS NEW SEARCHES FOR CLINTON BENGHAZI EMAILS
August 9, 2017

Nine months after the presidential election was decided, a federal judge is ordering the State Department to try again to find emails Hillary Clinton wrote about the Benghazi attack.

U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta ruled that the State Department had not done enough to try to track down messages Clinton may have sent about the assault on the U.S. diplomatic compound on Sept. 11, 2012 — an attack that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

In response to Freedom of Information Act requests, State searched the roughly 30,000 messages Clinton turned over to her former agency at its request in December 2014 after officials searching for Benghazi-related records realized she had used a personal email account during her four-year tenure as secretary.

State later searched tens of thousands of emails handed over to the agency by three former top aides to Clinton: Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan. Finally, State searched a collection of emails the FBI assembled when it was investigating Clinton’s use of the private account and server.

In all, State found 348 Benghazi-related messages or documents that were sent to or from Clinton in a period of nearly five months after the attack.

However, the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch argued that the search wasn’t good enough because State never tried to search its own systems for relevant messages in the official email accounts of Clinton’s top aides.

Kim Jong Un Has Put America Within Striking Distance

April 29, 2017 | Updated: August 10, 2017

The window to stop North Korea from being able to attack the U.S. with a nuclear bomb is closing fast.

U.S. defense analysts now believe North Korea has as many as 60 nuclear bombs, and the ability to put them on missiles. Kim Jong Un declared that the entire U.S. territory was within striking distance after his regime twice tested an intercontinental ballistic missile called the Hwasong-14 in July.

Responding to President Donald Trump’s vow to unleash “fire and fury” on Kim’s regime, North Korea said this week it was drawing up plans to fire a missile over Japan into waters off Guam, home to some of the most important U.S. military bases in the Pacific. South Korea warned Kim against such a test, while Japan’s defense minister said it would be legal to shoot it down.

The Federal Reserve Made a FB Post About Avoiding Scams… And It’s Getting Destroyed by Trolls
August 8, 2017

Last August, the Federal Reserve came face-to-face with an army of trolls when it launched a public Facebook page, but whoever runs their social media doesn’t appear to have learned much from the debacle. Last week, the loathed central bank attempted to advise its followers on detecting scams, and it didn’t go well.

Apparently, scammers attempt to swindle unsuspecting individuals by claiming to represent the Federal Reserve, so the bank decided to offer up some advice.

“Fed FAQ: I received a suspicious-looking e-mail that claims to be from the Federal Reserve. Is it a scam?” the Fed’s official Facebook asked before linking users to an official guideline.

Unfortunately for the page’s social media manager, its followers had responses ready to go, and nearly all of them bluntly contended that the Fed, itself, is a scam.

Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Scandal Linked Directly to Obama – Trump’s Lawyer Confirmed
August 8, 2017

Jay Seculow of the American Center for Law & Justice – who is now an attorney for President Donald J. Trump – made a shocking accusation on his Tuesday radio show. He said he has discovered an email that connects the Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting scandal directly to the Obama White House.

We’re learning more about this meeting, and it’s clear it was the point in which the Clintons were able to avoid criminal prosecution charges, which once seemed likely.

This is a stunning development, as Obama Administration alumni are denying involvement and are trying to protect their legacy. After all, their efforts didn’t work out as planned and Trump won the election despite this extraordinary level of corruption on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Judge Orders State Dept. To Search State.Gov Accounts For Clinton Aides’ Benghazi Emails
August 10, 2017

A federal judge has ordered the State Department to search the “state.gov” email accounts of Hillary Clinton aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jacob Sullivan for records related to Benghazi, as part of a watchdog’s Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.

U.S. District Judge for the District of Columbia Amit Mehta made the call Tuesday, describing the FOIA lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch in March 2015 as “a far cry from a typical FOIA case.”

He noted that “Secretary Clinton used a private e-mail server located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State.”

Judicial Watch Victory: Federal Court Orders State Department to Conduct a Search of Benghazi Emails of Hillary Clinton’s Closest Advisors
August 10, 2017

(Washington, DC) — Judicial Watch announced that on August 8, 2017, D.C. District Court Judge Amit P. Mehta ordered the State Department State “to search the state.gov e-mail accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, and Jacob Sullivan,” former aides of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State. The State Department is ordered to search in those accounts “for records responsive to [Judicial Watch’s] March 4, 2015, FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] request.” (A separate Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit first broke open the Clinton email scandal.)

Judge Mehta described Judicial Watch’s Clinton Benghazi FOIA lawsuit as “a far cry from a typical FOIA case. Secretary Clinton used a private e-mail server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State.” Further:

[I]f an e-mail did not involve any state.gov user, the message would have passed through only the Secretary’s private server and, therefore, would be beyond the immediate reach of State. Because of this circumstance, unlike the ordinary case, State could not look solely to its own records systems to adequately respond to [Judicial Watch’s] demand.

President Trump on Thursday questioned whether his threat to unleash “fire and fury” on North Korea was “tough enough.”

Trump said “you’ll see” what is “tougher” than “fire and fury.” He added that his statements were backed “100 percent” by the military.

“And we’re backed 100 percent by our military, we’re backed by everybody and we’re backed by many other leaders,” he said. “And I noticed that many senators and others came out today very much in favor of what I said. But if anything that statement may not be tough enough.”

Final Currency Debasement To Zero Has Started
August 10, 2017

Fake money has created a totally uneven playing field for most ordinary people.

Money used to represent a medium of exchange that would facilitate bartering. Instead of exchanging goods or services, people would receive a piece of paper that was equal to the value of their goods or services. This was initially an honest system when for each service or goods offered there was only one bank note issued. Eventually the banker started to cheat and issued a lot more money/paper than the counter value produced in kind. And that was the beginning of money printing. It just became too tempting and convenient for governments and bankers to simply create more money since nobody would really know. So if the value of a day’s work or a pig were both say $100, the money or paper issued for this should be $100 for each. But gradually governments/banks would issue more and more paper with nothing produced in return. All banks today lend at least 10x the money deposited so for every $100 received $1,000 is leant. But the leverage can be much greater like Deutsche Bank which is leveraged nearer 50x.
