Kunstler: The "Resistance" Ship Is Lost At Sea

In these horse latitudes of late summer, with the seas becalmed and the riggings a’creak, the Resistance’s ship-of-the-line (a.k.a. the Democratic Party) drifts ever further out of sight of land. Even so, a few of its crew members have jumped ship:

New York’s mayor, stowaway Bill de Blasio, may have been shoved overboard.

Former Colorado Gov. Hickenlooper walked the plank clutching the lifebuoy of a sure-thing senate seat.

Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee went mad drinking seawater and dove in after hallucinating a school of beckoning mermaids.

Months from now, the accursed vessel may be discovered mysteriously deserted, prompting tales of mutiny and cannibalism, like the brigantine Mary Celeste of legend.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The more I look at members of Congress, what I see is a bunch of individuals who have been "acquired" by major corporations, to do their bidding.

The American people can be left to rot in the fields of lies, half-truths, and downright destruction visited upon people of the earth, whose only "crime" was living over, or adjacent to, resources the US government wants to expropriate.

That is why, unfortunately and most probably, the US Government, will never leave Afghanistan; there are still too many treasures to loot, to give the Afghani people any opportunity for peaceful self-determination.

The White House Just Blamed Bitcoin for America’s Opioid Crisis

By Graham Smith

The opioid epidemic is the new devil Bitcoin is being blamed for inflaming, to be added to the already long list of heinous crimes crypto is supposedly responsible for, like terrorism, money laundering, and trafficking. While it’s painfully clear that the U.S. dollar is a much more common tool for these unethical and illicit activities, that doesn’t stop the powers that be from continuing their propagandistic assault on financial freedom — ignoring their own central role in creating these massive problems by pumping up the artificial monopolies that peddle them, and outlawing less dangerous and non-addictive solutions...

Two Years Into Texas Campus Carry And Professors Who Feared Doomsday Refuse To Comment

A dozen states permit concealed carry on campuses for students, but sadly they remain a minority. This is, in part, due to the Chicken Little predictions by those like Professors Moore, Glass and Carter who don’t vigorously support everyone’s right to self-defense. And don’t would rather spread fear than facts. -- Each year, more states move to approve campus carry for students and staff. -- Faster please.

The Hidden Costs Behind Every Government Program

By Gor Mkrtchian

When the State constructs a new bike lane, school, or begins a new space mission, the natural inclination of the majority is to cheer this new endeavor as progressive. We possess one new structure or have accomplished one new task than before; society has moved forward, the thinking goes.

The State is responsible for truly technically impressive or beautiful accomplishments like the Apollo missions, the Moscow Metro, the Palace of Versailles, etc. that most would agree clearly produce benefits for society.

Confronted with these concrete and widely celebrated examples of government accomplishments, how can libertarians deny that state action is sometimes a benevolent force in society?...

Report Reveals Number Of Environmental Activists Killed Each Week

By John Vibes

As images of the Amazon burning were shared across social media this week, the world is turning its attention to the battle between indigenous people and the powerful interests who are seeking to take their land for financial gain. It is important to note that many of the images shared in the wake of the recent fires were actually falsely attributed; however, there is a very real crisis taking place in the Amazon, and in other tropical regions throughout the world.

Last month, a group of gold miners invaded a remote Amazonian village that was inhabited by the Waiãpi tribe and killed their leader, sending the rest of the tribe to flee in terror. Sadly, this is no isolated incident...

Telecom Lobbying: $80M in 2018 and $1.2B Since 1998. Details On Who Spent How Much and Why This Matters

By B.N. Frank

Lobbyists have a bad name for good reason. Activist Post has reported before about telecom and tech companies spending beaucoup bucks to sway elected officials and government employees to force the installation of risky technology – including utility “Smart” Meters and 5G – in communities across the U.S.

Law Firm Investigates Smartphone RF Levels Exceeding Federal Safety Limits and Coverup By Telecoms

Bill Gates Refuses to Explain Why He Flew on “Lolita Express” With Jeffrey Epstein in 2013

By Tyler Durden

Former Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates may not be able to escape Epstein-gate after all, after it was revealed last week that the billionaire traveled with Jeffrey Epstein on his infamous ‘Lolita Express’ Boeing 727 in 2013 – four years after Epstein served time for pedophilia.

According to the Daily Mail, “Flight records reveal that Gates flew with Epstein from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey to Palm Beach on March 1, 2013, one of the few flights that year where pilot Larry Viskoski recorded the name of a passenger.”

If you’ve ever asked yourself “Would Bill Gates fly on a convicted pedophile’s private plane?” the answer is a resounding yes...

Doing What You Want With Your Money Is a Fundamental Right

By Jamie Redman

Since the birth of Bitcoin, crusaders fighting for the separation of money and state discovered a new payment tool that bypasses the nation state’s control over the monetary system. For over ten years now, lots of people have been using digital currencies to hide from prying eyes of governments in order to free themselves from a system that contributes to insanity.

The Separation of Church and State Has Proved Humans Can Remove the Monetary System From State Control

It can take years, decades, and even centuries for humans to realize certain concepts used within society are immoral. Things like genocide, chattel slavery, and religious persecution have all been deemed unethical. Over the last century, throughout a great majority of countries worldwide, the separation of church and state has become the norm...

The Dirtiest Anti-Gun Trick, EXPOSED!

The anti-gun crowd loves to distort the position of gun-owners. It’s most often the only way they can win the argument. Often times, the gun-conversation turns into a war of words and statistics. But when the anti-gunners put their Bloomberg funded “statistics,” that have been reported in Huffington Post and “fact-checked” by Snopes, up against FBI data, their argument takes nose dive.

House Democrats Focus On Straws, Not Solutions

As the argument surrounding gun control and the Second Amendment occupies daily space in the mainstream media, anti-gun zealots must resort to increasingly outlandish claims in order to get the attention they seek. Most recently, U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) compared the current campaign to force new gun restrictions through Congress to efforts by some state and local governments to ban plastic straws.

Stocks Plunge After Trump Lashes Out at China, Vows to Retaliate “This Afternoon”

By Tyler Durden

Anyone who was hoping for a quiet end to the week is currently having a panic attack, as first China announced new tariffs on the US, then Powell’s J-Hole speech came and went, and then, as we expected, Trump responded to China’s trade war escalation when in a barrage of 4 tweets he lashed out at Beijing, saying, “We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far better off without them“, and ordered “Our great American companies… to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.”

He also ordered “all carriers, including Fed Ex, Amazon, UPS and the Post Office, to SEARCH FOR & REFUSE, all deliveries of Fentanyl from China (or anywhere else!). Fentanyl kills 100,000 Americans a year. President Xi said this would stop – it didn’t.”...

Lindsey Graham’s Blank Check. Why a Defense Agreement with Israel Would be a Disaster for Americans

Two world wars began because of unconditional pledges made by one country to come to assistance of another. On July 5, 1914, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany pledged his country’s complete support for whatever response Austria-Hungary would choose to make against Serbia after the June 28th assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria by a Serbian nationalist during an official visit to Sarajevo, Bosnia. This fatal error went down in history as Germany’s carte blanche or “blank check,” assurance to Austria that led directly to WW I.

Say No to the “Cashless Future” — and to Cashless Stores

By Jay Stanley

I went to a counter-serve restaurant recently, and when the time came to pay for my order, took out my wallet, presented a $20 bill, and was told, “Sorry, we don’t accept cash.” I was flabbergasted. What happened to “legal tender for all debts public and private,” as it says right there on the bill?

This has now happened to me at three separate establishments in recent months. The rise of cashless establishments is happening amid continuing hype over the supposed dawn of a “cashless future” and agitation by some very powerful interests that would love to see cash disappear. The credit card companies love it, naturally, and tech industry associations have also pushed for the concept.

Meanwhile, a backlash has prompted several cities and states including San Francisco, Philadelphia, and New Jersey to ban cashless stores ...

The Push to Kill Cash – Australia’s Proposed Ban Shows It’s Not Conspiracy Theory

By Graham Smith

The supposed coordination of governments and tech companies to create a one-world, cashless society is often viewed as little more than fodder for silly YouTube conspiracy videos. After all, cash is still king in daily life, even in extremely high-tech, innovative societies like Japan. Upon closer examination, though, current realities like Australia’s proposed cash transaction ban for 2020, the continuing removal of higher denomination bills from several world economies, and the creation of centralized, state cryptocurrencies by governments worldwide cannot be ignored.

These trends signal a global push to kill paper money in the name of safety, security, and financial inclusion...

How Amazon and Silicon Valley Seduced the Pentagon

By James Bandler, Anjali Tsui and Doris Burke

On Aug. 8, 2017, Roma Laster, a Pentagon employee responsible for policing conflicts of interest, emailed an urgent warning to the chief of staff of then-Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Several department employees had arranged for Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, to be sworn into an influential Pentagon advisory board despite the fact that, in the year since he’d been nominated, Bezos had never completed a required background check to obtain a security clearance.

MORE PC BS : San Francisco board rebrands ‘convicted felon’ as ‘justice-involved person,’ sanitizes other crime lingo

The sanitized language, though unlikely to do much to address the crime problem, may result in some convoluted descriptions of crimes in the future. -- The newspaper noted an individual whose car has been broken into could well be known to police as “a person who has come in contact with a returning resident who was involved with the justice system and who is currently under supervision with a history of substance use.”

Venezuela’s Health Care System Is in Shambles, but Markets Are Already Responding

By Byron Carson

Hospitals are supposed to help people, not become a source of their ailment. Generally, hospitals do help people. According to the data and graphing tools of Gapminder, rates of child mortality and malnourishment are negatively correlated with the number of physicians per 1,000 people and the number of hospital beds per 1,000 people. Similarly, the percentage of a population surviving to age 65 increases with the number of physicians and hospital beds.

What a Nobel Peace Prize, the Federal Reserve, and Endless War Have in Common

By Joe Jarvis

It was ten years ago that Congressman Ron Paul released his book, End the Fed. It immediately shot to number six on the New York Times Bestsellers list.

Paul’s message was that the Federal Reserve was created to bail out banks. It privatized profits for them and socialized losses for the rest of us. He said the system works against us by killing competition among banks and hiding taxes through inflation.

War funding is the main reason the government needs this hidden tax power...

Unsettling Study Names American Police as 6th Leading Cause of Death for Young Men

By Matt Agorist

A rather shocking study published this month by the Proceedings of the National Academy of the Sciences, names police officers as the sixth leading cause of death among young men. Police killings were only preceded in frequency by accidental death, a category that includes drug overdoses and car accidents, at 76.6 deaths per 100,000, followed by suicide (26.7), other homicides (22.0), heart disease (7.0), and cancer (6.3). These killings by police include shooting, choking, beating, and various other ways police have taken the lives of Americans...

Tariffs Accelerate Trucking and Shipping Slide

By Peter C. Earle

Trucking and transportation firms more broadly are both seasonal and cyclical businesses, and some of the earliest signs of damage from the current administration’s trade war with China are beginning to reveal themselves. Traditionally a leading indicator, transportation and shipping data often take two to three quarters to show up in broader national economic statistics. They have the added benefits of being without the anchoring biases that other economic indicators are and, being drawn from disparate sources, cannot easily be manipulated.

While truck, air transport, and maritime shipping activity were brisk in the early stages of the tariff war last summer (2018) — and even referred to as a “boom” at the time — the pace of the downturn over the last six to eight months makes the reasons behind last summer’s improbable surge clear: retailers were hurriedly attempting to stock inventories in advance of additional hostilities or stalled negotiations...

Medical Destruction: It’s Not Just a Conspiracy Theory

By Jon Rappoport

We’re now living in a time of accusations. A public official or mainstream press outlet doesn’t like what they’re hearing, and they say, “Well, that’s just another conspiracy theory.”

And then know-nothing people breathe a sigh of relief and move on. “Thank goodness THAT’S NOT REAL.”

If enough authorities repeat “conspiracy theory,” the truth goes begging.

In this case, the facts have arrived. What’s missing is widespread knowledge of those facts. The mainstream press is a cover-up operation...

American Apocalypse: The Government’s Plot to Destabilize the Nation Is Working

“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out … without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.” — H. L. Mencken

The U.S. government is working hard to destabilize the nation.

No, this is not another conspiracy theory.

Although it is certainly not far-fetched to suggest that the government might be engaged in nefarious activities that run counter to the best interests of the American people, doing so will likely brand me a domestic terrorist under the FBI’s new classification system.

Impeachment Time

It is astonishing to observe some Americans twisting themselves into pretzels so they can continue to make excuses to explain the bizarre behavior of President Donald Trump on the world stage. The line most commonly heard is that he has “kept us out of new wars.” The reality is somewhat different. He has kept us in old wars in Afghanistan and Syria that he could have ended while also needlessly ratcheting up tension with countries like Russia, Venezuela, Iran and China that could easily escalate into armed conflict. The situation with Moscow is particularly dangerous as President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly warned that his country’s defense doctrine includes going nuclear if there is an attack on Russia by a superior force.

What’s Russia Up to in the Iranian Port of Chabahar? The North-South Transport Corridor (NSTC)

There have been wild reports over the past few weeks about Russia’s activities in the Iranian port of Chabahar, with some sources even alleging that Moscow plans to open up a naval base there.

An interesting sequence of events has recently taken place that makes many wonder what Russia’s up to in the Iranian port of Chabahar. It’s widely known that Russia, Azerbaijan, Iran, and India are cooperating on the North-South Transport Corridor (NSTC) project to integrate each of their economies more closely together, with Chabahar being this initiative’s terminal port in connecting India to the other three and also Central Asia.

Seattle residents blame inefficient elected officials for homeless problem, say they've 'lost faith' in system

The District of Criminals bears most of the responsibility for the destruction of America and its' People.

SEATTLE -- The richest man in America calls Seattle home. So do thousands of others who are forced onto the streets because they are too poor, too addicted or too detached from reality. At night, the city's homeless sleep wherever they can -- in tents crammed in parking garages, in parks or under highway overpasses. Some feel victimized by a society that has moved on without them. Others feel preyed upon by politicians eager to push pet projects and scattered initiatives that make themselves look good but do little else. Sick of stepping over used condoms, broken lighters and needles, residents say they are heartbroken to see the city they've loved turn into a dangerous, drug-infested den of filth and human misery.
