Morgan Freeman Calls Out Evil Monsanto For Mass Murder, Attempting To Depopulate The Planet Reader 02/10/2018 (Sat) 18:04:42 Id: 5996c9 [Preview] No. 6380 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

“Evil Monsanto business practices” are depopulating the planet, “one species at a time,” according to Morgan Freeman, who warns that action must be taken against the company if the human race is to survive.

Not only has Monsanto gained a monopoly over the world’s food supply, but according to Morgan Freeman, its products are causing devastation among humans, wildlife and the environment in general.

“Monsanto are actively destroying the honeybee so they can play God and try to rewrite the rules of nature, all for the purpose of greed,” explained Mogran Freeman, who pointed out that genetically modified organisms (GMOs), Monsanto’s bread and butter, “are wiping out the honeybee in this country.”

“Honeybees are responsible for pollinating many of the crops humans depend on for food,” Morgan Freeman said, warning “the consequences for the human race are not going to pretty.“

But unlike many Hollywood stars, Freeman is not just paying lip service to a problem without doing anything of value in the real world. Morgan Freeman is getting his hands dirty and playing his part in the fight against Monsanto.

In an effort to help support population growth for the little pollinators, the actor has turned his 124-acre Mississippi ranch into a sanctuary for wild honey bees. He hired a gardener, planted hundreds of flowering trees, and filled many acres with clover.

Starting with 26 hives of buzzing babies, the actor has turned himself into an experienced beekeeper. Importantly, he has instituted a strict ban on “life destroying” Monsanto products on his property.

Through his actions, Freeman has made clear his love and compassion for wildlife and the environment. The actor appeared on an episode of Larry King Now last year where he highlighted the responsibility humans have in the disturbing decline of honeybee populations.

I don't mind the black folks who are down to earth (typically older boomer blacks are). I can't stand the black thugs and wannabe-nigger whites. Skin color is not the most important issue, its the behavioral problems associated with their third world style culture. There is a conspiracy out there that the CIA created gangster rap to divide and create tensions on purpose as a means for social control / expanding the need for a police state.

What's amazing to me, after looking into it, is just how woke everyone used to be. In the 70s and 80s, some of this stuff was just considered common knowledge. "Jews jew - that's what they do" etc. Schindler's List must have had such a profound impact... or something else. idk.

I can't speak for any CIA plots without being full of shit (unless providing documents to the board that I don't have), and neither can anyone else. What current "black culture" is only helped keep the negro dumb. The "prison trends are swag" pants draping around their knees to copy the signifier they're ready for buttsex, as well as jew record producers actively seeking out the dumbest niggers they can find to amplify that behavior. Rap music since the 90s glorifying murder of their own and cops. Negroes of that era have already described the very same issues with kike record producers. Let us not forget, MTV culture began this degeneracy. CEO ((Philippe Dauman))

The CIA pretty much took over Hollywood and that includes all the networks like MTV. They promote all their "diversity" propaganda on those networks, including gangster rap music which is run by kike producers. So the conspiracy is deep, its more like subliminal infiltration into our culture to weaponize society against one another. What better way to control the masses than to have us killing off one another and have thugs running around killing cops and other helpless victims? Then they can make their profits off the prison industrial complex. Its a win-win for these rogue corrupt agencies.



Dickhead Dems In FEC Want To Criminalize Free Speech Online Reader 02/16/2018 (Fri) 19:11:53 Id: bc91e0 [Preview] No. 6565 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Democrat efforts on the Federal Election Commission to punish media and stifle voices like the Drudge Report and Fox are going “underground” after failing in public, according to the agency’s outgoing defender of media and digital outlets.

“The debate has gone underground, it has not ceased,” said Lee Goodman, who fought off several attempts to stifle outlets like Fox, Drudge and conservative media including film makers.

“The desire to regulate Americans' political speech on the internet remains alive and well here at the commission and now even in Congress,” added Goodman, whose last day on the FEC is Friday.

Goodman pointed to efforts by FEC Democrats to change long-standing media exemptions to fines and even criminal charges. In two recent cases he cited, the Democrats proposed those changes then waived imposing punishments.

But by moving to change the rules the FEC operates under, the Democrats tried to open the door to future legal sanctions on media, he said.

In a memo about a recent case, for example, Goodman said that Democrats Ellen Weintraub and Steven Walther wanted to upend a long-standing practice of not holding media outlets responsible when political campaigns and advocates fail to include in ads the required disclaimer stating who paid for the ad.

In that case, two anti-Hillary Clinton ads were run in an Ohio newspaper, the Chesterland News, that did not carry the required disclaimer. FEC lawyers recommended no action against the paper, citing precedent that the person placing ads is responsible.

In the Chesterland News case, he wrote, the effort was killed in a split vote. But, he added, it was a sign of continued efforts to regulate the media. The vote, he wrote, signaled “a renewed effort by some to change current law to impose civil and criminal liability upon traditional press organizations like Chesterland News, or to new media platforms like Facebook and Twitter…”

In his memo, he expressed “strong disagreement with any proposal to impose civil and criminal liability upon press entities, as well as their new media counterparts, when they agree to make their publications available for political advertisements.”

Seems to me that many democrats want to seize the means of production, as in seize our ability to produce or make a decent living. Bunch of control freak land grabbers, gun grabbers, wealth grabbers. They love the idea of wealth re-distribution, as long as their wealth is maintained and only the average worker forks over their hard earned income (typical of communists). They mock Americans for wanting their jobs back (manufacturing jobs), they mock consumers for wanting the freedom to choose what services they purchase (health care). They mock those who believe in God (Christians mostly). They also like to blame their political foes for actual crimes and collusions they themselves are guilty of (read rules for radicals). These are all traits of the average communist punk.



Expect Bigger Police State In US Schools After Recent Shooting Reader 02/15/2018 (Thu) 20:21:22 Id: b5f10b [Preview] No. 6537 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview on Thursday morning that school shootings such as those that occurred in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday could be prevented by allowing local law enforcement to intervene with troubled individuals.

“All of law enforcement is deeply concerned about this trend of violence in schools and other, similar places,” he said, noting that he had discussed the issue with an organization of local law enforcement officials Thursday morning.

“I was with the Major County Sheriffs’ Association this morning, and they all said, and believe, that there are signals and signs before these shootings that, if recognized, could lead to intervention, and could stop these events from occurring.”

https://archive.fo/heaBp

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told radio show host Hugh Hewitt that Congress must address mental health issues in schools in order to prevent another deadly mass shooting like the one in Florida on Wednesday.

Hewitt asked DeVos:

Secretary DeVos, we have a no-fly list in this country. Ought we not to have a no-buy list for students who are obviously troubled, have been expelled, are in mental health programs and who post YouTube videos of the sort that this kid did? Don’t we need a superintendent to be able to go to a police chief and say this kid can’t have a gun?

The secretary responded:

[T]here have, apparently were lots of signs. And I think it’s critically important that we have a much more robust conversation around tracking and tackling mental health issues, and really bringing this all together, because it’s clear that, it seems to be clear that this young man put up lots and lots of signals and warning signs.

$50? I'd love to know which state and grocery store you shop at. My weekly grocery bill is always over $100 to feed myself, my wife, and our two girls. The Fed doesn't need to be nationalized. It needs to be wiped out of existence. Creation of the Fed is what got us into this problem in the first place. Doesn't matter. Hyperinflation will happen, the people will finally fight back or die starving, and the failed system will be overthrown with the corrupt politicians who kept it afloat exiled or executed as traitors.

Well, nationalization would put it under State control. IF we had the proper government they could seize their assets and then use the Fed's accumulated assets to pay back off much of the debt. This is what Russia has done with their central bank. Most bankers were jailed and had their wealth seized to pay off the debts! (Similar to what happened recently in Saudi Arabia, they busted up the oligarchy and seized their assets!) Back to Russia: Russia owes 0 in debt thanks to Putin (which is one reason why the Western elites despise this man so much).

All we need to do is arrest the corrupt oligarchs, seize their assets and start using all their wealth to pay the debt back off. To do this we need a good government and right now we have a terrible terrible government unfortunately.

there is absolutely - ABSOLUTELY NOTHING - that law enforcement will do to make anything better in these situations.

The FBI knew this psycho wanted to become a mass murder months before due to his social media being reported on, yet they did nothing about it. The FBI could have intervened and it would have saved lives. And if law enforcement won't do their jobs as intended, then we need to get rid of all the "gun-free zones" and allow the teachers to arm themselves to protect their classrooms from these kinds of psychos. Imagine if teachers could protect students by being able to shoot back at those killers.

Fayetteville police are trying to identify a man they say stole 12 propane tanks from a convenience store on Legion Road.

The theft happened about 11:40 p.m. Monday at the Legion Mart at 2425 Legion Road, a police news release said.

Investigators said the locks to the propane storage bin were cut, giving the man access to the tanks.

The man drove away in an older model Nissan Maxima.

Police have released photos taken from surveillance cameras and are asking anyone with information to call the Police Department at 703-1058 or Crimestoppers at 483-TIPS (8477).

Lady Sues City Hall Over Tyrannical Chicken Ban Reader 02/15/2018 (Thu) 18:13:05 Id: ab2ed8 [Preview] No. 6534 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Ramona Morales, 79, had no idea a few chickens could be so expensive. She also didn’t know that prosecutions could be so profitable.

Three years ago, on a neighborhood street in central Indio, a city code enforcement officer spotted a few clucking birds inside a coop in the backyard of a small house. The chickens were a violation of a city ordinance, so the officer sent a written warning to Morales, who owned the house and rented it out.

At the time, Morales thought the warning was just a slap on the wrist for a small problem. This kind of minor headache is commonplace in the unpredictable life of a landlord.

She told her tenant to get rid of the chickens. She thought that was the end of it. It wasn’t.

“She didn’t know this little dispute about a couple of chickens would turn into nearly a $6,000 bill,” said Jeffrey Redfern, Morales attorney. “But it’s because these guys are making money off of her and everybody else.”

On Tuesday, Morales filed a class-action lawsuit against Indio and Coachella, two cities that have made a practice of taking residents to criminal court for exceptionally minor crimes, then charging them thousands to pay for the cost of their own prosecution. The lawsuit is a direct response to a Desert Sun investigation, published in November, which revealed that the cities had billed residents like Morales more than $122,000 in “prosecution fees" and threatened to take their homes if they didn't pay.

If successful, the class-action lawsuit will reverse convictions of anyone who was prosecuted by Indio and Coachella's privatized prosecutors, the law firm Silver & Wright, and lead to the return of prosecution fees paid by those residents. The suit also might affect other Riverside County cities that also have hired Silver & Wright.

Morales is represented by the Institute for Justice, a nonprofit, libertarian public interest law firm that combats government overreach, particularly what the firm calls “policing for profit." The law firm is similar to the American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU.

Redfern, an Institute attorney, said the Morales lawsuit argues that Silver & Wright had a “personal, financial stake” in every prosecution; if they got a conviction, they got paid. This profitability colored every case filed by Silver & Wright, Redfern said, making prosecutions less about fixing problem properties and more about cashing in on convictions.

In some states and counties it is perfectly legal to raise chickens in your backyard. In many suburban areas it is only legal if you qualify them as "pets" and if you do, be careful if you use them for food, you do not want those officials to know you are using them as food. The whole purpose of these control freak laws was the UN's push for their "Agenda 21" back in the mid 1980s to early 90s. The UN wanted to keep the majority of Americans dependent on grocery stores and foreign imports of food rather than seeing America become self-sufficient. Much of UN Agenda 21 was gutted as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court over the years but there is still remencence of it left today such as local ordinances like this one.

Recent School Shooting Points To Another False Flag: Active Shooter Drills, Multiple Shooters Witnessed, FBI Was Aware of Killer Reader 02/16/2018 (Fri) 17:11:59 Id: 0e4599 [Preview] No. 6556 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Here are some updates all pointing to another false flag operation!

ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILLS TOOK PLACE RIGHT BEFORE REAL SHOOTING

Teachers at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida took part in an ‘active shooter drill’ just hours before the mass shooting on Wednesday.

Earlier on in the day, teachers were told there would soon be a “code red” or “lockdown” drill – in which teachers and students would “practise” their response to a mass shooting.

Miamiherald.com reports: When the fire alarm rang near the end of the school day on Wednesday, teacher Ernest Rospierski assumed it was a “code red” drill.

Rospierski was sitting at his desk around 2:25 p.m. when the fire alarm rang. His students filed out of their third-floor classroom and made their way toward the stairs. Then Rospierski heard the sound of gunfire.

Law-Enforcement Officials Say YouTube Tip on Florida Shooter Wasn’t a Strong Lead

Current and former law-enforcement officials said it wasn’t clear what further action the FBI could have taken after agents were notified of a threatening comment left on YouTube last year by a user with the same name as the 19-year-old charged with killing 17 people Wednesday at a Florida high school.

A user by the name of “nikolas cruz” in September posted a comment on a Mississippi bail bondsman’s video blog, saying, “Im going to be a professional school shooter.”

The video blogger, Ben Bennight, was concerned enough about the comment that he reached out to the Federal Bureau of Investigation to alert them. Within days, agents visited Mr. Bennight and appeared to be taking his tip seriously, he said in an interview.

Mr. Bennight and others have noted that the commenter’s YouTube moniker was the same as Nikolas Cruz, the teen charged in the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. Law enforcement officials couldn’t confirm that it was Mr. Cruz who made the comment.

“I wish the information could have prevented something like this from happening,” Mr. Bennight said in a new YouTube video, posted after the shooting.

The FBI is now claiming that a threat to kill innocent people does not qualify as "tip" to investigate. Oh gosh! But a fake dosseir about Trump paid for by the DNC must be, right!?

Your complicity is duly noted and documented!

Assad, Putin: We Will Not Be Bullied, We Do Not Fear War With Israel Reader 02/12/2018 (Mon) 15:26:19 Id: 33e97d [Preview] No. 6410 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has warned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Syria is fully prepared to go to war with Israel.

Following the shooting down of its first Israeli F-16 fighter jet this week, Syria has sent a clear message to the world: They will no longer be silent on violations of its airspace.

Elijahjm.wordpress.com reports: This clash has triggered the mobilisation of the Syrian army and its allies in Syria and in Lebanon, the Lebanese Hezbollah. The speed of the Syrian reaction was due to a prior decision taken at highest level among all allies operating on Syrian territory. These consider a possible confrontation may be inevitable if Israel has decided to respond and declare war. The violation of Syrian sovereignty is no longer an option open to Israel and the Israeli jets will no longer be able to carry out their usual promenades over the Levant without consequences.

Moreover, it is also clear that Russia – despite all that is said in the media – is aware of the Syrian decision to confront Israel. Moscow is supplying Syria with anti-aircraft missiles, its forces dominates the air space over the Syrian Army’s controlled territory, and has the radar capability to see and monitor any Israeli aircraft flying over Israel, Lebanon and Syria. Russia is also informed when the Syrian army repeatedly fires missiles and confronts the Israeli air force in the sky over Syria or in the border areas.

It is not in the interests of Russia to see war break out in Syria where its forces are present on the ground and in the Mediterranean. Russia considers it has the right to intervene because its official presence on Syrian territory is at the request of and in agreement with the Damascus government. In its role as a superpower, it is in its interest to stop the tension on the Syrian border and show it has the power to impose peace on would-be belligerents.

https://archive.fo/3H2Hb

Vladimir Putin has warned Israeli PM Netanyahu to back away from Syria immediately, or face “dire consequences” as a result.

Following Israel’s air raids in Syria, Putin telephoned Netanyahu, urging him to “avoid any steps that could lead to a new round of confrontation dangerous to everyone in the region,” according to the Kremlin.

Police capture gunman who left numerous fatalities after opening fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida Reader 02/15/2018 (Thu) 01:32:22 Id: ec9831 [Preview] No. 6523 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Seventeen people have been killed and more than a dozen injured after a former student entered a Florida high school and opened fire, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel confirmed.

Local news reported that a number of people could be seen being loaded into ambulances on a stretcher soon after the shooting. Other students could be seen running to police safety outside of the school, where they all dumped their backpacks in a pile and were told to sit on the grass.

At around 4.15pm, police said the shooter had been taken into custody after being tracked down without incident. The shooter was later identified by local media and the Associated Press as Mr Cruz. (That's Nikolas Cruz.)

At least 17 people were dead after a 19-year-old former student opened fire at a South Florida high school on Wednesday afternoon, officials said.

The suspect was identified as Nikolas Cruz, a former student who had been expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland for disciplinary reasons, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel said. He said at least 14 other people were injured in addition to the 17 people killed.

Officials believe the gunman had one AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle and multiple magazines, but it was unclear whether he had any other weapons. The gunfire began outside the school and continued inside, where 12 of the victims were killed, Israel said.

Cruz used to show off his guns, brag about shooting them "for fun" and "threatened to bring the guns to school multiple times," he said, adding that students "threw jokes around that he'd be the one to shoot up the school."

Parkland, in north Broward County, is about 30 miles northwest of Fort Lauderdale. The shooting on the sprawling campus happened despite the presence of police officers at the school.

"We were told last year that he wasn't allowed on campus with a backpack on him," Jim Gard, a math teacher at the school who said he taught Mr Cruz last year, told the Miami Herald of Mr Cruz. "There were problems with him last year threatening students, and I guess he was asked to leave campus."

the school (and Parkland in general) has a shit-ton of jews. Someone posted a page from their school yearbook that was all about "yay torah" for some jew school club. So I don't thin it's surprising there are kike symbols in the classroom.

How much do you want to bet the FBI supplied him with the guns but "accidentally didn't arrest him in time" too?

So Now They Admit It... A Little Too Late! China's One Belt One Road Initiative A Big Threat To US Economic Hegemony Reader 02/16/2018 (Fri) 18:12:36 Id: 4e4941 [Preview] No. 6561 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

China’s decision to expand its ambitious multi-trillion-dollar “One Belt, One Road” (OBOR) initiative to Latin America may create security vulnerabilities for the United States by allowing Beijing to expand its influence over the region, the chief of U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) cautioned lawmakers.

During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Thursday, Adm. Kurt Tidd, the commander of SOUTHCOM, testified that Beijing has already pledged $500 billion in trade funds with various Latin American countries and $250 billion in Chinese direct investment over the next decade, adding:

Increased economic cooperation—such as the extension of the “One Belt, One Road” initiative to Latin America, one of the nodes to support China’s vision of a competing global economic initiative—and the continued provision of financing and loans that appear to have “no strings attached” provide ample opportunity for China to expand its influence over key regional partners and promote unfair business and labor practices.

Increased reach to key global access points like Panama create commercial and security vulnerabilities for the United States, as do Chinese telecommunications and space ventures with dual-use potential, which could facilitate intelligence collection, compromise communication networks, and ultimately constrain our ability to work with our partners.

Adm. Tidd’s warnings about Chinese activities in Latin America are contained in SOUTHCOM’s 2018 posture statement, a summary of the combatant command’s role, mission, operations, and budget presented to Congress on an annual basis in the form of written testimony.

In this year’s document, Tidd stressed that China is intensifying its role as a U.S. rival in Latin America, telling lawmakers:

The larger strategic challenge posed by China in this region is not yet a military one. It is an economic one, and a new approach may be required to compete effectively against China’s coordinated efforts in the Americas. Some of the most critical elements needed in this effort are not ones that [SOUTHCOM] can bring to bear.

Beijing’s estimated $3 trillion OBOR project, also known as the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) and the modern-day “Silk Road,” is expected to be a massive network of land and sea links connecting Xinjiang, China’s biggest province, to more than 60 countries in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa along one route.

Trump's New Budget Bill Is A Debt Bomb Waiting To Explode: 5 Trillion Requested Reader 02/15/2018 (Thu) 23:11:52 Id: e2384d [Preview] No. 6541 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Imagine you open the faucet of your kitchen sink expecting water and instead out comes cash. Now imagine that it comes out at the rate of $1 million a minute. You call your plumber, who thinks you’re crazy. To get you off the phone, he opines that it is your sink and therefore must be your money. So you spend it wildly. Then you realize that the money wasn’t yours and you owe it back.

Now imagine that this happens every minute of every day for the next three years. At the end of the three years, you owe back more than $6 trillion. So you borrow $6 trillion to pay back the $6 trillion you owe.

Is this unending spigot of cash reality or fantasy?

I am not speaking of Amazon or Google or Exxon Mobil or Apple. They deliver products that appeal to consumers and investors. They deal in copious amounts of money because they sell what hundreds of millions of people want to purchase and they do it so efficiently that hundreds of thousands want to invest in them. If they fail to persuade consumers to purchase their products and investors to purchase their financial instruments, they will go out of business.

My analogy about all that cash in your kitchen sink that just keeps coming is not about voluntary commercial transactions, which you are free to accept or reject. It is about the government's spending what it doesn’t have, the consequences of which you are not free to reject.

Government produces no products that consumers are willing to pay for voluntarily, and it doesn’t sell shares of stock in its assets. It doesn’t generate wealth; it seizes it. And when it can no longer politically get away with seizing, it borrows. It borrows a great deal of money -- money that it rolls over, by borrowing trillions to pay back trillions to prior lenders, and thus its debt never goes away.

Last week, after eight years of publicly complaining that then-President Barack Obama was borrowing more than $1 trillion a year to fund the government -- borrowing that the Republicans silently consented to -- congressional Republicans, now in control of Congress and with a friend in the Oval Office, voted to spend and hence borrow between $5 trillion and $6 trillion more than tax revenue will produce in the next three years; that’s a few trillion more than they complained about in the Obama years.

That’s borrowing $1 million a minute.

Obviously, no business or household or bank can survive very long by borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. Yet the federal government, no matter which party controls Congress or the presidency, engages in staggering borrowing -- borrowing that will cripple future generations by forcing them to pay for goods and services that were consumed before they were born.

The government has often borrowed to meet critical emergency needs, typically during wartime. Indeed, the country was born in debt when Alexander Hamilton, the father of big government, offered the idea that the new federal government created by the Constitution could purchase the fidelity of the states by assuming their Revolutionary War debts.

But those debts were paid back using inflation, gold and tax dollars, and the country enjoyed sporadic periods of nearly debt-free government. Then three unhappy events coincided about 100 years ago: Woodrow Wilson -- the father of modern-day big government -- was elected president, and he brought us into the useless battle over national borders among old European royalty called the Great War, and he financed American participation in that first world war using the new printing presses owned by the new Federal Reserve System.

The $30 billion President Wilson borrowed from the Federal Reserve and others has been rolled over and over and has never been repaid. The federal government still owes the $30 billion principal, and for that it has paid more than $15 billion in interest. Who in his right mind would pay 50 percent interest on a 100-year-old debt? Only the government.

Wilson’s $30 billion debt 100 years ago has ballooned to $20.6 trillion today. At the end of President Donald Trump’s present term -- because of the Republican budget signed into law last week -- the government’s debt will be about $27 trillion.

That amount is a debt bomb waiting to explode. Here’s why. Every year, the federal government collects about $2.5 trillion in revenue and spends it all. It borrows another $1.5 trillion to $2 trillion and spends it all. To avoid paying back any of the $27 trillion it will owe, the federal government will need to spend about $1 trillion a year in interest payments.

That $1 trillion is 40 percent of the revenue collected by the federal government; that’s 40 cents on every dollar in tax revenue going to interest on old debts -- interest payments that are legally unavoidable by taxpayers and voters.

Will the taxpaying public tolerate this much longer? What would happen if taxpayers stopped paying taxes because 40 percent of what they've been paying has produced nothing for them? Would investors stop lending money to the government because of fear that the government could not pay them back? The Constitution requires the government to pay its debts. Would the government’s creditors acquire control of the government’s fiscal policy in order to pay themselves back? The government’s biggest creditor is one of its biggest menaces -- the government of China.

Borrowing money at $1 million a minute is digging a hole out of which we will never peacefully climb. President Obama’s and President Trump’s own military and intelligence chiefs have argued that the national debt -- not the Russians or the Islamic State group or the North Koreans -- is the greatest threat to freedom and security that we face today.

My opinion: the US petrodollar is TOAST, they know so, only a matter of time before it collapses, so they are going on a looting spree at this point, taking anything they can get their hands on.
