Been a lot of talk about “aliens” over the last year or so, the legal and illegal types!

Pope Francis Says He Would Baptise Aliens: ‘Who Are We To Close Doors?’
May 13, 2014

Pope Francis has said that he would be willing to baptise aliens if they came to the Vatican, asking “who are we to close doors” to anyone – even Martians.

In a homily yesterday dedicated to the concepts of acceptance and inclusion, Francis recalled a Bible story about the conversion of the first pagans to Christianity, according to reports on Vatican Radio.

He said Catholicism was a church of “open doors”, and that it was up to Christians to accept the Holy Spirit however “unthinkable” and “unimaginable” it appeared.

Describing how, according to the Bible, Peter was criticised by the Christians of Jerusalem for making contact with a community of “unclean” pagans, Francis said that at the time that too was “unthinkable”.

Ethereum Chief Warns Cryptocurrencies Could ‘Drop To Near-Zero At Any Time’
February 20, 2018

The co-founder of Ethereum has put out a stark warning for crypto fans: Don’t bet the farm on cyberassets, because prices could “drop to near-zero” at any moment.

Vitalik Buterin took to Twitter over the weekend to caution people about digital currencies, which delivered blockbuster rises in 2017, before taking a beating at the start of this year.

“Reminder: Cryptocurrencies are still a new and hyper-volatile asset class, and could drop to near-zero at any time. Don’t put in more money than you can afford to lose,” the Russian-Canadian programmer said in his post Saturday.

“If you’re trying to figure out where to store your life savings, traditional assets are still your safest bet,” he said.

If what John Cardillo claims here regarding Sherriff Israel and his deputy is true, it should be clear (if it wasn’t already)…we are being sold out by traitors and infiltrated by terrorists! This is Wasserman Schultz’ district who hired the Awan brothers to handle her (and many other Congressman’s) IT and computer services. It was not politically correct during the last administration to question why so many muslims were made “czars” of the many various departments. It is time to wake up people, we have Trojan horses all over the country that need to be rooted out…piss on political correctness because all it is is a death wish!

These are a few questions regarding the Parkland High School shooting, there are and will be others. Please do not e-mail me asking why this is even relevant. We have advocated gold and silver as real and truthful monies. They are your alternatives to unbacked currency issued by a government telling you to trust the money because you can trust issuer. False flag after false flag suggests your savings are best served somewhere that “trust” is not even an issue?

Parkland School Shooting: Top 10 Reasons for Deeper Interrogation
February 25, 2018

Over the past several years certain certain US mass shootings receive round-the-clock coverage yet often possess curious features which are ignored and merely accepted “as reported” by less-than-trustworthy corporate media. Bizarre circumstance and the sometimes inexplicable actions of officials, victims, eyewitnesses and would-be culprits give rise to concern that government agencies and news media act in certain ways to embellish some incidents while short-circuiting the dissemination of vital information.

In the flood of information following such heavily-covered tragedies there are sometimes enough anomalies in routine reporting to develop serious cause for concern and intensified scrutiny. The Marjory Stoneman Douglas mass shooting is one such event. Below is a list and brief discussion of what this author believes to be the most glaring inconsistencies and overall problems evident in information and coverage of the Parkland incident that necessitate further consideration of the overall event.

Really? I would be pretty pissed if the primary candidate I supported was “rigged against”! It seems these lawyers are saying the 1st Amendment is only pertinent if your use of it agrees with them. This train of thought is also trendy in our “higher” institutions of learning…

Lawyers For The DNC Argue That Primary Rigging Is Protected By The First Amendment
February 24, 2018

The ongoing litigation of the DNC Fraud Lawsuit and the appeal regarding its dismissal took a stunning turn yesterday. The defendants in the case, including the DNC and former DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, filed a response brief that left many observers of the case at a loss for words.

The document, provided by the law offices of the Attorneys for the Plaintiffs in the case, Jared and Elizabeth Beck, and appears to argue that if the Democratic Party did cheat Sanders in the 2016 Presidential primary race, then that action was protected under the first amendment. Twitter users were quick to respond to the brief, expressing outrage and disgust at the claims made by representatives of the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The Defense counsel also argued that because of Jared Beck’s outspoken twitter posts, the plaintiffs were using the litigation process for political purposes: “For example, Plaintiffs’ counsel Jared Beck repeatedly refers to the DNC as “shi*bags” on Twitter and uses other degrading language in reference to Defendants.” Fascinatingly, no mention is made regarding the importance of First Amendment at this point in the document.

Top trends forecaster Gerald Celente predicted a 10% correction in the stock market for 2018. It already happened.  What are his updated predictions for the rest of the year?  Celente says, “What brought the markets down was the fear of interest rates going up.  Now, as you mentioned, we had forecast a 10% correction.  Here’s our forecast now.  We believe the Trump rally is near its peak.  It may go up more, and here is why it will.  Trump is allowing companies to bring back money from overseas.  All that dough they have stashed over there that they haven’t been paying taxes on, they’re going to bring it back and get a great tax break. . . . George Bush did that back in 2003 and 2004.  Do you know where the money went?  96% went into stock buybacks, not capital improvements.  Again, Trump gave them a 21% tax rate from the 35% rate, and that money, we believe, won’t go into capital improvements because when you look at S&P 500 earnings, they are doing really great.  They are expected to have a 19% increase this year.”

What is the FBI Hiding in its War to Protect Comey?

What is the FBI Hiding in its War to Protect Comey?

The coup attempt against President Trump is rapidly collapsing, but the deep state is still in cover-up mode. In an article for The Hill I discussed the FBI’s continuing protection of former Director James Comey and Judicial Watch’s efforts to penetrate the truth.

As the James Comey saga continues to unfold, the James Comey legend continues to unravel.

The more we learn about his involvement in the deep state’s illicit targeting of President Trump, the more reason the American people have to question both his motives and his management as director of the FBI, the now-disgraced agency he headed before Trump fired him. Comey has left a trail of suspicious activities in his wake.

Comey now looms large over a burgeoning constitutional crisis that could soon overshadow Watergate at its worst. To deepen the crisis even further, it now appears some of Comey’s former FBI and Justice Department colleagues continue to protect him from accountability.

This Will Chill You To The Bone – Entire Archives Of Independent Reporting And Video Channels Just Got Flushed Down The Toilet
February 23, 2018

Pretty hard to write when you find yourself literally speechless, definitely not something usual for a writer, but what I found this morning, example, after example after example…..etc etc etc, chilled me right to the bone.

Years worth of videos, interviews from The Richie Allen show with 76,000 subscribers and 1,400 videos, along with years of work by The Ochelli Effect Radio Show, gone, wiped out, as both were terminated from YouTube for “violations,” with Jordan Sather having been blocked from livestreaming for 90 days after his video titled “2.15 – FL Shooting/NSA Incident/Other Articles & Cosmic/UFO News.” His YouTube channel has 117K subscribers.

In Sather’s case, they have just started, now that he has been targeted, they will go through all his other videos, find another two violations just as they did with Allen, and most likely terminate him as well.

It isn’t just Google’s YouTube though, no, this is more insidious as we are informed by Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange, that the website Medium, has wiped out the entire article archives of Independent writers such as Mike Cernovich, Laura Loomer and Jack Posobiec.

Factoid: Marjory Stoneman Douglas became famous for defending the Florida Everglades – i.e. the swamp – from being drained:
Marjory Stoneman Douglas (April 7, 1890 – May 14, 1998) was an American journalist, author, women’s suffrage advocate, and conservationist known for her staunch defense of the Everglades against efforts to drain it and reclaim land for development…By the 1960s, the Everglades were in imminent danger of disappearing forever because of gross mismanagement in the name of progress and real estate and agricultural development

The ‘Index Of The Volume Of Speculation’ Hits A New Record High
February 23, 2018

This is an excerpt of a post that first appeared in The Felder Report Premium.

“Even the most circumspect friend of the market would concede that the volume of brokers’ loans—of loans collateraled by the securities purchased on margin—is a good index of the volume of speculation.” -John Kenneth Galbraith, The Great Crash 1929

When it comes to stock market sentiment, I like to give more weight to measures that track investor positioning rather than sentiment surveys. I want to know what investors are actually doing rather than what they say they’re doing. To me, the level of margin debt shows the potential supply and demand for risk assets. When margin debt is low there is plenty of potential demand and when it’s high there is plenty of potential supply. Nominal margin debt recently surpassed $600 billion dollars for the first time on record, roughly twice the amount seen at the peak of the dotcom mania.

A $ trillion here and a $trillion there, pretty soon we’re talking about money…with NO VALUE!

US Gross National Debt Spikes $1 Trillion in Less Than 6 Months
February 24, 2018

And these are the good times.

As of the latest reporting by the Treasury Department, the US gross national debt rose by $41.5 billion on Thursday, February 22, to a grand total of $20.8 trillion.

Here’s the thing: On September 7, 2017, five-and-a-half months ago, just before Congress suspended the debt ceiling, the gross national debt stood at $19.8 trillion.

At that time, I was holding my breath waiting for the gross national debt to take a huge leap in a single day – as it always does after the debt ceiling gets lifted or suspended – and jump to the next ignominious level. It sure did the next day, when it jumped $318 billion.

And it continued. Over a period of 8 weeks, the gross national debt jumped by $640 billion. Four weeks after that, it had ballooned by $723 billion, at which point Fed Chair Yellen – whose cheap-money policies had enabled Congress to do this for years – said that she was “very worried about the sustainability of the US debt trajectory.”
