WeWork’s Unraveling Is Another Indictment of Wall Street’s Universal Bank Model
October 22, 2019

WeWork is just one more in a long series of Wall Street scandals that prove that the universal banking model is little more than a thinly-disguised wealth transfer system from the pockets of average Americans to the 1 percent.

Just two months ago WeWork’s two lead Wall Street underwriters, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs, were planning to offer WeWork’s shares to the public investor at a valuation in excess of $47 billion. Now we are learning that the company may run out of money next month and has an actual valuation of $8 billion or less.

WeWork’s founder, Adam Neumann, who was attempting to cash out of his company that had never made a dime of profits in its nine years of existence and had run up losses of $900 million in just the first six months of this year, will walk away as a billionaire according to a report in the Wall Street Journal this morning. According to the Journal, the Japanese SoftBank is planning to take over the mess and plow in more billions in a private buyout. SoftBank already has $10.5 billion invested in WeWork so it is effectively doubling down on a bad trade – something that even rookie stockbrokers know better than to do.

The Pathocracy Of The Deep State: Tyranny At The Hands Of A Psychopathic Government
October 23, 2019

. . .

There is no difference between psychopaths and politicians.

Nor is there much of a difference between the havoc wreaked on innocent lives by uncaring, unfeeling, selfish, irresponsible, parasitic criminals and elected officials who lie to their constituents, trade political favors for campaign contributions, turn a blind eye to the wishes of the electorate, cheat taxpayers out of hard-earned dollars, favor the corporate elite, entrench the military industrial complex, and spare little thought for the impact their thoughtless actions and hastily passed legislation might have on defenseless citizens.

Psychopaths and politicians both have a tendency to be selfish, callous, remorseless users of others, irresponsible, pathological liars, glib, con artists, lacking in remorse and shallow.

Charismatic politicians, like criminal psychopaths, exhibit a failure to accept responsibility for their actions, have a high sense of self-worth, are chronically unstable, have socially deviant lifestyles, need constant stimulation, have parasitic lifestyles and possess unrealistic goals.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about Democrats or Republicans.

Political psychopaths are all largely cut from the same pathological cloth, brimming with seemingly easy charm and boasting calculating minds. Such leaders eventually create pathocracies: totalitarian societies bent on power, control, and destruction of both freedom in general and those who exercise their freedoms.

An article worth reading carefully and reflecting upon it.

As the essence of what the western world will be in the future lies in strategies and actions yet to be taken by western culture.

‘You Can Never Be China’s Friend’: Spengler
October 20, 2019

He was a phantom among journalists, using the mysterious nom de plume, “Spengler.” Like his German philosopher namesake, the cultural critic returned again and again to his despairing theories of the decline of the West.

The work of “Spengler” drew from a deep and rich intellectual pool. And since the herald has revealed his true identity, we learn why. David P Goldman – philosopher, economist, mathematician and musicologist – is a Renaissance man. A former investment banker for the Bank of America and Credit Suisse, the American is known for his widely read column for Forbes magazine and Asia Times.

Dutch writer Leon de Winter crowns Goldman’s work as “among the most interesting in the world.”

We meet at the noble Princeton Club in Midtown Manhattan where Goldman is a member. He is intensively involved with China. Informed by close experience in the country and with its people, Goldman counsels caution toward the aggressive Asian empire. But before training a critical eye on the East, the keen observer sharply examines his own culture and the president for whom he voted in 2016.

Barcelona Mayhem: Clashes With Police As ‘Half A Million’ Pro-Independence Supporters Rally Amid General Strike (PHOTO, VIDEO)
October 18, 2019

A huge crowd with Catalan flags has paralyzed central Barcelona as people from all across the region protested the harsh prison sentences for pro-independence leaders by the Spanish court and called for parting ways with Madrid.

The police estimated that at least 525,000 turned up in the center of Barcelona, local media cited law enforcement. “Independence,”“The streets will be ours” and “Freedom to political prisoners” were among the chants heard at the massive gathering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The rally continued more or less peacefully for a few hours, but was eventually marred by more serious violence as some of the protesters started building barricades and setting garbage containers on fire.

That secret Russian plot to re-elect Trump is still working..

The plot’s title is “Let Them Speak” (thank you Charles) … Maybe they should put a flag up or something else to make it look like they really are on the side of Americans only…

Nolte: Democrats Are Losing Millions And Millions Of Debate Viewers On CNN
October 17, 2019

CNN’s Tuesday night Democrat debate drew only 8.3 million viewers, a huge drop from the 14 million who watched the previous debate on ABC and Univision.

Tuesday’s debate was the fourth this year among those Democrats angling to win their party’s presidential nomination, and the ratings were the lowest of the year, even when you add the 449,000 live streams.

Back in July, far-left CNN hosted the second debate of the year, a two-night event that drew 8.7 million and 10.7 million viewers, for an average of 9.7 million. This was also a massive drop-off from the previous debate.

My bud Jay tried to get in to the Dallas Trump rally.  Reports of 5,000-10,000 outside trying to get in are absolutely true.

So I go to CNN’s website and type in Veritas Video, and…guess what I found? NOTHING (about yesterday’s bombshell)! This is the news not reporting the news that they themselves are a part of…Trust Nothing – as Dismal Dave would say…methinks he’s mostly right.

Trump Rids Major U.S. Container Port of Chinese Communist Control
October 8, 2019

Under a long-term deal sealed by the Obama administration, a Chinese Communist company was set to control the second-busiest container port in the United States. In an unreported Trump administration victory, the Communists are out after a drawn-out national security review forced a unit of China-based COSCO Shipping Holdings Co. (Orient Overseas Container Line—OOCL) to sell the cherished container terminal business, which handles among the largest freight of imports into the U.S.

It all started with a 40-year container terminal lease between the Port of Long Beach in southern California and Hong Kong. The Obama administration proudly signed the agreement in 2012 giving China control of America’s second-largest container port behind the nearby Port of Los Angeles. One of the Trump administration’s first big moves was to get the Communists out of the Port of Long Beach. After a national security review and federal intervention, the Long Beach terminal business, which handles millions of containers annually, is finally being sold to an Australian company called Macquarie Infrastructure Partners. That essentially kills China’s decades-long contract with the Obama administration.

The deal never should have been signed in the first place considering the facility’s size, significance and the national security issues associated with a hostile foreign government controlling it. The southern California port is the premier U.S. gateway for trans-Pacific trade, according to its website, and handles trade valued at more than $194 billion annually. It is one of the few ports that can accommodate the world’s largest vessels and serves 140 shipping lines with connections to 217 seaports around the world. The facility encompasses 3,200 acres with 31 miles of waterfront, 10 piers, 62 berths and 68 post-Panamax gantry cranes. In 2018, the Long Beach port handled more than 8 million container units, achieving the busiest year in its history.

Italy today launched new debt in US dollars instead of Euro hoping to attract dollar investors as the Euro market continues to show signs of stress. They issued USD2.5bn 5yr, USD2bn 10yr, USD2.5bn 30yr

We are in the end game now as the the EU and the Euro to have Euro members begin issuing debt in US dollars. This is going to create further tensions between the Fed and ECB moving forward. The REPO market is still in crisis and the fears are evident in Europe behind the curtain continue. This all puts the FED and the ECB on a collision course.

It why I have for months been saying the only currency for trade Finance or mezzanine debt or equity is in USD as it is the only practical debt settlement. Even Bitcoin settlement in USD is preferred over Euro and this was not the case 6 months ago. This begs the question of why people are going there as there is a scarcity of dollars.

Today’s  event is not a canary in a coal mine but a eruption of a volcano, particularly as more countries start to turn to USD financing.

Court Forces Release of Clinton WikiLeaks Discussion Email that Confirms State Department Knew about Her Email Account — Judicial Watch
September 30, 2019

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that the State Department provided a previously hidden email which shows that top State Department officials used and were aware of Hillary Clinton’s email account.

On December 24, 2010, Daniel Baer, an Obama State Department deputy assistant secretary of state, writes to Michael Posner, a then-assistant secretary of state about Clinton’s private email address:

    Baer: “Be careful, you just gave the secretary’s personal email address to a bunch of folks …”

    Posner answers: “Should I say don’t forward? Did not notice”

    Baer responds: “Yeah-I just know that she guards it pretty closely”

“There Is No Climate Emergency”: Scientists Call For Reasoned Debate
October 2, 2019

Authored by Richard Trzupek via The Epoch Times,

The message was clear: “There is no climate emergency.”

With those five simple words, a global network of scientists and professionals attempted to inject reasonableness and decorum into what should be a robust discussion about a complex scientific and public policy issue, but has instead degenerated into an ever more intense mud-slinging contest over the years.

People on one side of the argument dismiss their opponents as wild-eyed socialists attempting to leverage public fear and ignorance to further their political agenda. On the opposite side, people dismiss those who disagree with their supposedly settled scientific conclusions as nothing more than knowing shills or ignorant dupes of evil energy interests.

In between those extremes that are so popular with armies of public relations professionals, who shape the messages of public interest groups and professional politicians to maximum effect, are a not-so-quiet silent majority of scientists and professionals who take a more measured, reasoned view of the science when considering the supposed climate emergency some say we’re facing.

You didn’t actually think that a couple of indictments were going to change things, did you? By now you must understand that The Banks will continue to manage and rig prices until the time comes that it is no longer profitable for them to do so.

In case you need a summary of recent events, please take time to review these three links:

What was once dismissed as “conspiracy theory” is instead becoming widely understood as “historical fact.” Yes, the market-making Bullion Banks seek to manage price for their benefit, and yes, gold price management dates back to the 1950s. However—and despite the recent indictments—these illegal schemes continue to this day.

Case in point? Last week.

Brandon Smith: Trump Cannot Be Anti-Globalist While Working With Global Elites
October 2, 2019

Authored by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market.com,

In the summer of 2016 during the election campaign I examined the Trump phenomenon and how it relates to the globalist narrative. I concluded that Trump would be president based on the fact that having a (supposedly) hardcore nationalist and populist conservative in the White House over the next four years would in fact be highly beneficial to the elites. At the time the Federal Reserve was getting ready to tighten liquidity, which would inevitably lead to market volatility and a crash in fundamentals. By the end of Trump’s first term, or perhaps at the beginning of his second term, the recessionary crisis would become obvious to the general public. Trump, and all conservatives, would be blamed for the resulting disaster that the banking elites engineered.

During the election it was unclear to me if Donald Trump was a puppet of the elites. He could have simply been a convenient scapegoat for the coming crash. Today, it is obvious that he is indeed controlled opposition.

As I’ve noted in numerous articles, Trump’s associations with the globalists go way back. He was saved by the Rothschild banking family from crippling debts in multiple property developments in Atlantic City during the 1990’s. The Rothschild agent that handled Trump’s bailout was none other than Wilbur Ross, the senior managing director of Rothschild New York. Ross is now Trump’s Commerce Secretary, which indicates that his relationship to the Rothschilds continues to this day.

Iran Is China’s Secret Weapon for Killing off the US Dollar’s Global Reserve Status
October 3, 2019

There is a strong current of change affecting the international political arena. It is the beginning of a revolution brought on by the transition from a unipolar to multipolar world order. In practice, we are faced with the combination of several factors, including the application of US tariffs on Chinese exports, Washington’s sanctions on Iran, US energy self-sufficiency, the vulnerability of Saudi industrial facilities, and Iranian capabilities for resisting US attacks, as well as its exportation of large quantities of gas and oil to China. Everything converges on one factor, namely, the looming decline of the US dollar as the global reserve currency

We have recently been witnessing events of considerable importance in the Middle East, almost on a daily basis. The tensions between Washington and Tehran are fueled above all by the Trump administration’s need to placate most of the US deep state, wedded to neoconservativism, who march in lockstep with Trump’s financiers from Wahhabi Saudi Arabia and Israel.

The aggressive policy towards Tehran, consisting of provocations and false-flags, has recently resulted in the type of public-relations disaster for the US military-industrial that I have anticipated for years would happen.

The attack by Yemen’s Houthis struck two major oil installations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, exposing the shortcomings of the very expensive American Patriot air-defense systems.

JB responds to the Brandon Smith article. I personally do not believe Mr. Trump is a cabal puppet. I may end up being sorely disappointed but as it stands now I don’t think so…

Bill,

This is just me venting. I love Dave’s views, it is truly a necessary voice, but then again, I still have doubts about his “everything is the same as before viewpoint’ and that this kabuki theater show does not have a rogue actor in it…comparing past and present has many facets, how about looking at that which is not comparable?

Let’s ignore all the things this president, who is “obviously” part of the cabal (as this writer suggests), but ignore the things that stand out as a “WFT?” if he is truly part of the banking sector cabal? Q (a branch of communication to bypass the cabal owned one-sided rigged media) has revealed more evidence of pedophilia, and the linked crimes of not only the Clintons and their Foundation, or Uranium One, or Fusion GPS, but let us also ignore the facts that MI 5 & 6 are now part of an investigation into crimes of trying to steal an election (are they cooperating?). Let us forget the facts that under the past administration an airplane that, might have been caught in a case of mistaken identity, was shot down at the same time the president of another country was rumored to be in Ukrainian airspace, with the bullet holed riddled fuselage of the crashed passenger plane videoed at the smoldering and smoking crash site.

Then let us forget the Judicial Watch Groups accusations finally gaining traction because this cabal picked president is allowing FOIA releases compared to how many denied? Or the past presidents absolute need for secrecy restricting this FOIA flow? Let us also forget the Veritas Video’s revealing who is controlling the crazies, who tried to use any action possible, who is controlling unions with almost all union fees going directly to one party (and GM’s Union strike going on right now). Let us also forget that the 9/11 investigation has been officially re-opened.

Let us also forget everything else we know is happening right now, like JPMorgan’s 3 guilty pleas, and the idea, that this is the first time the Morgue has ever been called a Criminal Element by the DOJ, when they have successfully kept that from happening since 1913 with the help of the cabal. Only then I can believe this article is correct in every way .. as long as I refuse to look at what’s different from this cabal elected president compared to the past cabal elected … Oh yeah, I love how this cabal elected president was allowed to out another royal pedophile directly related to the queen and Epstein Island which was a major part of the Clinton’s past travel plans. That must have been planned too, to make sure people believe this elected president is a card-carrying cabal member.

I am not as convinced as Dave is that Trump is on the side of the banker squad. If he is a cabal member, he simply may not be a good one … Just like he’s very bad at being a racist …. Besides, if one is a billionaire (I obviously am not), you may have no choice but to deal with criminals in $40k suits or pantsuits and/or royalty in banking …. Or the other idea, most cabal members are heavily involved in the stock market, yet this actor is?

I feel better now…Hope your day is good.

JB
