Doug Band provides vivid details on Bill's personal financial arrangements including raising "more than $50 million in for-profit activity for President Clinton to date" and "$66 million in future contracts, should he choose to continue with those engagements."
If governments allow banks to shut down bank accounts of individuals or companies without a fair trial and due legal process, it will create a very dangerous situation indeed. In this environment, buying gold is rational behaviour to even the biggest paper-bugs out there. The current monetary experiment of massive QE is no longer the main concern of prudent investors and institutions, it is now combined with negative interest rates and bail-ins.
There are 5 events the administration would be most likely to utilize to reach the end state of Martial Law. All of these can occur simultaneously, successively, or individually in any combination at any time...
As tensions escalate in and around Syria, Russia just added another straw to the camel's back of 'proxy' wars between Washington and the rest. One Russian border patrol officer and nine North Korean fishermen were injured after Russian border patrol was forced to open fire during inspection of a North Korean fishing vessel whose crew resisted search, behaved aggressively, and tried to flee.
As Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte continues to distance himself from the West, moving instead toward regional powerhouse China, an official from China’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that the controversial leader of the Philippines will meet with the Chinese president next week in Beijing.
As the U.S. elections draw nearer, the amount of bellicose rhetoric from politicians and key military commanders (in truth, “politicians” as well) has been increasing. The main focus of that rhetoric has been directed toward Russia, and is also “blathered” in the direction of China, North Korea, and Iran when it suits U.S. political interests. The problem is that all of it is not just talk: action has been taken, especially regarding Russia and the Syrian theatre of operations.
An NSA contractor, Harold Thomas Martin III, age 51, from Glen Burnie, MD was arrested on August 29th, with the FBI investigating whether he is the party responsible for stealing and disclosing highly classified computer codes developed to hack into the networks of foreign governments.
Since the early 90s, policy-makers in Washington have had as their objective the utopian goal of global hegemony, and in order to accomplish this the US armed forces had to expand and create new control centers in every corner of the planet. This is a typical example of imperial overreach, which has historically been the impetus for the collapse of several kingdoms and empires over the centuries.
"Even if he’s as bad as he sometimes projects to be, he’s not as bad as Hillary’s policy-record already is." Sometimes, things in politics are the opposite of the way they seem. The Presidential contest between the ‘liberal’ Hillary Clinton’ and the ‘conservative’ Donald Trump is perhaps the most extreme example of this - for these ten reasons...
Regardless of whether you’re a millionaire with multiple foreign bank accounts or a recent college graduate with a boatload of debt, the status of being a United States citizen brings with it a burden that will only grow heavier over time.
"Fuck all these skewed polls. The debate didn't matter, and it didn't change anyone's mind..Trump should have been hammering the Clintons (that's right, Hillary and Bill) on putting Wall Street in change of America's economy, but he spent far too much time defending himself...Trump needs to paint the Clintons as the tag team that gave the country away to the banksters, and forced 76% of Americans into living a paycheck to paycheck lives..."
Two short weeks ago, we exposed the gaping difference between Amazon reader reviews of Hillary Clinton's "Stronger Together" book (14% 5-Stars) and Donald Trump's "Great Again" book (74% 5-Stars) as The New York Times describedClinton's propaganda as a "flop." So, as with everything else in this 'new normal rigged' world, something had to be done and WaPo-owner Jeff Bezos' Amazon reviews appear to have been 'tweaked' - more than doubling Hillary's top reviews.
As can readily be seen by the current events, the world has not been this close to a nuclear war and World War 3 in a long time. There are four major flashpoints right now that could easily escalate and ignite a powder keg, transforming from a regional conflict or conflicts into a world war: Syria, the South China Sea, Ukraine, and North and South Korea. The “reconstruction” of a Cold War-type faceoff, initiated by the U.S. and NATO building up forces in Eastern Europe and facing off against Russia.
No matter who wins in November, America is going to face a divide unseen in decades. If Donald Trump wins, he will confront a resident media more hateful than that which confronted Richard Nixon in 1968. If Hillary Clinton wins, she will come to office distrusted and disbelieved by most of her countrymen, half of whom she has maligned either as “deplorables” or pitiful souls in need of empathy.
