All news aggregation websites are generally bad, they all need human interpretation and filtering of the junk info leaving the newsworthy info, while commentary on junk info is usually a waste of time used to get people clicking links. Newsworthy doesn't mean good or bad, just worthy enough to be called "news". What a nigger does basically every other day somewhere in the US isn't really "news". Excessive speculation about bitcoins isn't really "news". A gang bust isn't news. A huge gang bust is semi newsworthy depending on the context but it's usually not because the Jewish Mafia is mostly intact. Articles of junk news for the sake of commentary isn't newsworthy commentary nor is it "news". Using shitty opinionated headlines concerning facts for articles that isn't newsworthy isn't going to get better because you use news-speak. Third world country's local news or some news about a specific species isn't news if it isn't geopolitical or if it does nothing to do with the economy, war, kikes, money, things that actually matter in life, etc., so designated shitting streets and crabposting isn't newsworthy. Drama isn't news either, keep that out of news and in other boards. News that praises politicians for things that they didn't do isn't news.



Zimbabwe Dictator Mugabe Arrested, Replaced By New Leader... Mugabe Vows Hunger Strike (Ironic After Starving His Own People) Reader 11/19/2017 (Sun) 17:14:37 Id: f17841 [Preview] No. 3276 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

Deposed dictator Robert Mugabe broke down in tears and asked for his dead wife and son before meeting army chiefs on Sunday after being ousted as leader of Zimbabwe's Zanu-PF party, one of his aides has told MailOnline.

The frail 93-year-old has until noon local time on Monday to resign as president or impeachment proceedings will start, Zanu-PF said.

Mugabe was replaced by the vice president he previously sacked, Emmerson 'Crocodile' Mnangagwa, after all ten Zimbabwean provinces passed no-confidence motions against the dictator two days earlier.

The frail dictator has been staging a hunger strike over his confinement in house arrest and is refusing to take regular baths or speak, the aide added.

Mugabe is expected to address the nation this evening on live television, it has been announced.

Robert Mugabe has had a history of kicking white African farmers off their land, resulting in the starvation of many Africans in Zimbabwe.

Heh. I think they have a lot of propoganda to overcome before that happens. That said, the AFD is now their third largest parliamentary party. Which, again, considering all the decades of propaganda they've had to sift through from their occupiers, is massively impressive.



Google Inc. Launches Biggest Ever Censorship Campaign Against Real News Reader 11/20/2017 (Mon) 16:28:18 Id: 7e502b [Preview] No. 3307 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Google has begun “reviewing the claims” of Your News Wire and other alternative media sites by linking to left-leaning “fact checking” sites when people search for “Yournewswire.com” or “Your News Wire”.

Google’s biography box for Your News Wire, which is shown with related search results, now has a “Reviewed Claims” tab which displays a Your News Wire headline and an associated article from Soros-funded and discredited 'fact-checking sites' such as Snopes, Politifact and Factcheck.org who all dispute the veracity of our content.

Infowars.com reports: The problem is that these “fact checking” sites are not as unbiased as they claim and are typically aligned with establishment interests, particularly those of Silicon Valley which wanted Hillary Clinton in the White House.

“Most ‘fact checkers’ are merely liberal journalists looking to prove their preconceived narrative,” wrote the Washington Times’ Kelly Riddell. “They cherry-pick the statements to ‘fact-check’ and then decide which data to back it up with.”

“Statistics can be manipulated — for every study coming out of the Brookings Institute, the Heritage Foundation can have a counter argument, depending on the methodology and surveys used. Moreover, much of what they decide to ‘fact-check’ is subjective at best. Nothing that can be pinned down with undisputed data.”

In short, “fact checking” is opinion journalism pretending to be some sort of heightened objectivity, as the Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto so eloquently stated.

The public largely agrees; most voters didn’t trust the media “fact checking” the news cycle during the presidential campaign, according to a survey.

“Most voters believe news organizations play favorites when it comes to fact-checking candidates’ statements, but this skepticism is much stronger among voters who support Donald Trump than those who back his rival Hillary Clinton,” the study stated. “A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 29% of all Likely U.S. Voters trust media fact-checking of candidates’ comments.”

“Sixty-two percent (62%) believe instead that news organizations skew the facts to help candidates they support.”

inb4 This Guy Gets Killed! FBI Informant Has Video Evidence of Clinton Uranium One Deal, To Testify Reader 11/18/2017 (Sat) 22:31:25 Id: 487103 [Preview] No. 3257 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

An undercover FBI informant in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former AG Loretta Lynch, claims to have video evidence showing Russian agents with briefcases full of bribe money related to the controversial Uranium One deal – according to The Hill investigative journalist John Solomon and Circa‘s Sara Carter.

The informant, whose identity was revealed by Reuters as William D. Campbell, will testify before congress next week after the NDA which carried the threat of prison time was lifted. Campbell, originally misidentifed by Reuters as a lobbyist is actually a nuclear industry consultant who is currently battling cancer.

As previously reported, Campbell was deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry where he gathered extensive evidence of a racketeering scheme involving bribes and kickbacks.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials. – The Hill

Campbell’s attorney, former Regan Justice Department official Victoria Toensing, previously told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs “He can tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”

Sarah Carter: He’s very sick and he’s been battling cancer and going chemo. He is in a battle for not only his life, but in a battle against what he perceives as people within the US government that don’t want this story to come out. But there’s so much information that he is willing to share with the public to set the record straight, and believe me we’re gonna get it out there. He is going to have his say. His voice will be heard.

Police State USSA: Journalist JAILED For Filming And Reporting Inauguration Day Riots Reader 11/20/2017 (Mon) 18:33:24 Id: 6e18a2 [Preview] No. 3320 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
NO TAKING PHOTOS OF SOROS' HIRED MERCENARIES!

There's little more chilling to First Amendment freedoms than the possibility of spending decades in jail for documenting a protest that turned into a riot. But that's exactly what independent journalist Alexi Wood is facing. Traveling from Texas to Washington DC to document anti-Trump protests on Inauguration Day, Wood was "kettled" and arrested along with the protestors he was covering. He wasn't the only journalist to be detained for hours and hit with charges, but most of the others have seen their charges dismissed.

Wood is facing charges that could see him jailed for several years, thanks to DC prosecutors who have decided to punish the journalist for being in the vicinity of destructive criminal activity.

Alexei Wood faces up to 60 years in prison for moving alongside and videotaping rioters as they protested President Donald Trump's inauguration in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 20. According to Wood, he was livestreaming the protest - videotaping events and putting them on the internet as they happened.

He said the livestream is still online, and shows he did nothing wrong.

"It documents everything I said or didn't say, do or didn't do - clear evidence,” Wood said. “Even the judge said there was 'zero evidence' I did property destruction."

Wood is one of seven journalists who, with a group of more than 200 protesters, were penned in and arrested that day. Charges against five of the journalists have been dropped.

Indeed, his livestream of the events leading to his arrest can be seen below, and nothing in it shows him participating in destructive acts.

Enough boycotts against Amazon and yes they could be taken down - but that won't happen because of too many mindless greedy yuppie consumers roam the Earth.

I still boycott them though, and I always will. Glad I'm not like the mindless consumers either, I've prepared and hedged bets AGAINST the petrodollar already: storing physical essential assets, plenty of guns/ammo/mags/rem oil, gold and silver coins too. Have my own garden, have an extra freezer full of grass beef w/ off-grid solar generation and ready for SHTF.

So I too have my own investments to attend. ;)



Major Donor In Hillary’s INNER CIRCLE ‘Suddenly Commits Suicide’... Look What He Knew Reader 11/20/2017 (Mon) 17:51:46 Id: 74cc59 [Preview] No. 3315 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Yes another person with extremely close ties to Hillary Clinton has died a mysterious death, and after seeing what he was involved with it’s hard not to question if foul play was involved.

Houston, Texas trial lawyer and Democrat mega donor Steve Mostyn died on Thursday in what authorities are saying was a “suicide,” according to the Houston Chronicle. Mr. Mostyn was only 46, he left behind a wife and several children, and earlier this year had announced that he was going to be stepping away from politics to spend more time with his family.

Details about how Mr. Mostyn allegedly committed suicide are slim. However, his family said that it happened after he “suddenly” became afflicted with some sort of mental illness then took his own life, although they weren’t clear as to what type of mental illness he suffered from.

But it is worth noting that Mr. Mostyn had never suffered from mental illness in the past, according to his family, further raising suspicions over the manner in which he died.

Mr. Mostyn was a progressive powerhouse who was heavily involved with politics throughout his career. He made his fortunes off of suing insurance companies after hurricanes ravaged his state, and used his wealth to fund numerous Democrat and progressive causes, including the Super PAC “Ready for Hillary,” which he and his wife co-founded with Susie Tompkins Buell, a radical environmentalist and member of George Soros’s Democracy Alliance.

Mr. Mostyn’s wife, Amber, was also a member of the Democracy Alliance and a close friend of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was the keynote speaker at a 2010 Annie’s List event honoring Amber. The Mostyns were close to the Clintons in general, having held numerous high-dollar fundraisers for Hillary’s failed 2016 presidential run at their Houston home.

However, their relationship came under stress in 2015, when ethics watchdog group Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) filed a formal complaint against Hillary and her campaign for illegal coordination with the Ready for Hillary Super PAC, the Daily Caller reported.

FACT has asked other federal agencies to investigate the Clinton campaign’s dealings. The watchdog sent a letter to the IRS asking it to investigate a $350,000 payment that the Clinton Foundation made to Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign for an email list of potential donors.

The watchdog has also asked the Federal Election Commission to investigate whether Clinton’s campaign illegally obtained an email list of 4 million names from the pro-Clinton super PAC, Ready for Hillary. FACT asserts that the list swap should be considered an in-kind donation — which would constitute illegal coordination between the campaign and PAC.

A sales plug in Russia in 2009, though, may have proved especially fruitful. While touring a Boeing plant, Secretary of State Clinton said, “We’re delighted that a new Russian airline, Rossiya, is actively considering acquisition of Boeing aircraft, and this is a shameless pitch.”

In 2010, Boeing landed the Russian deal, worth $3.7 billion. And two months later, the company donated $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation.



But the financial connections don’t end there. Boeing also paid former President Bill Clinton $250,000 for a speech in 2012. It was a speech that was approved by the State Department’s Ethics Office — which according to an Associated Press report often approved the ex-president’s speaking engagements within days.

And in another potential trouble spot, Boeing’s chief lobbyist and former Bill Clinton aide Tim Keating hosted a fundraiser for Ready for Hillary, the political action committee raising money to help fund a run for the White House. Boeing took no issue with Keating doing so.

The extent of Mr. Mostyn’s ties to the Clintons isn’t fully known. But he seems to have been a major player in their inner circle for years, and the timing of his death is especially concerning as Hillary Clinton has once again found herself at the center of scrutiny for alleged dirty dealings during her time as Secretary of State.

Whether or not Mr. Mostyn killed himself or was murdered, we may never know. However, he was undoubtedly close enough to the Clintons to know enough incriminating information to put them away for a long time, so that gives him quite a bit in common with others who’ve been “Arkancided.”

New Petroyuan Standard Incoming: Second China-Russia Crude Oil Pipeline Project Completed Reader 11/20/2017 (Mon) 17:06:59 Id: 3eddf3 [Preview] No. 3310 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
On November 12, the second China-Russia crude oil pipeline project, which lasted 456 days, was finally completed, the 21st Century Business Herald reported.

According to the planned volume of pipeline transportation between China and Russia, after the completion of construction, Russian oil transported to China’s northeast by land-based crude oil pipelines will double from 15 million tons to 30 million tons.

The second China-Russia crude oil pipeline project started in 2013, when PetroChina and Russia signed a 30 million ton per year contract, aiming to fill the annual supply gap caused by the decline of crude oil production in northeast China.

According to the pipeline construction firm, CNPC Pipeline Company, the second China-Russia crude oil pipeline starts in the north from Mohe and runs south to Daqing, with a total pipeline length of 941.8 kilometers.

“There are two major difficulties in pipeline construction; one is construction, and the other is to ensure the safety of the first pipeline,” said Zheng Fuyao, project manager of the second pipeline. “With strong government support, while overcoming a number of technical difficulties, the project was finally completed on schedule.”

When the Manchurian candidate is a moron, there's nothing to be bothered about.

It's disconcerting to discover what an effective president says, or does, is meaningless half the time. With Trump as symbol-in-chief it's more counterproductive than lacking in meaning, but The Fed rolls along on cruise control as always.

Most annoying is the Republican inability to form an effective governing coalition. That's only surprising if you view congress as some D/R binary switch, instead of an intramural free for all of cliques and factions. It's not only the multiparty democracies that suffer from this problem. They're just more honest about it by keeping all such painful compromise between distinct parties out in the open.

Meanwhile, the Russians may have payed off the orchestra to fuck around with the meter, yet the traditional double left footed waltz that is the American political scene staggers on.

Deutsche Bank Admits Fiat Currencies Are Failing, Cryptocurrencies May Replace Them Reader 11/16/2017 (Thu) 18:46:47 Id: 0342cd [Preview] No. 3187 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As the transition towards a blockchain based economy continues, the established financial powers are desperately trying to stay relevant. In an attempt to boost their credibility, analysts at Deutsche Bank are finally admitting that state-run fiat currencies are becoming obsolete. For years, blockchain entrepreneurs and other critics of central banking have been branded either conspiracy theorists or criminals. But recently, those controversial opinions about the inevitable changes coming to the world’s financial system are being echoed by mainstream pundits.

Deutsche Bank’s top strategist, Jim Reid, recently articulated a view on the economy that is shared by many but rarely talked about:

“Central banks and governments which have ‘dined out’ on the 35 year secular, structural decline in inflation are not able to prevent it rising as raising interest rates to suitable levels would risk serious economic contraction given the huge debt burden economies face. As such they are forced to prioritise low interest rates and nominal growth over inflation control which could herald in the beginning of the end of the global fiat currency system that begun with the abandonment of Bretton Woods back in 1971.”

The most surprising part came when he acknowledged the crucial role cryptocurrencies may play in the move away from unbacked paper money.

“Although the current speculative interest in cryptocurrencies is more to do with blockchain technology than a loss of faith in paper money, at some point there will likely be some median of exchange that becomes more universal and a competitor of paper money.”

The people’s trust in centralized control of currencies has never been directly challenged on this scale before. Competition in the emerging digital economy between different cryptocurrencies has introduced an alternative monetary system that empowers the individual and rewards based on merit, not special interests.

Any paradigm shift like this is guaranteed to have growing pains, but those who refuse to adapt will suffer most. Even though Bitcoin, Ethereum, and countless other blockchain applications may create tremendous value for years to come, the current volatility is still more than most can stomach. One of the first things new people in the space love and hate is the tendency toward massive swings in price that occur seemingly at random. Those who do decide to get involved need to make their primary focus self-education. Trying to stay objective without understanding the fundamentals behind issues like scalability, forks, different algorithms, and mining incentives will be nearly impossible. The reactions driven by ignorance, greed, and fear are all amplified in these new unregulated markets, meaning there is no safety net for amateurs. These wild fluctuations will eventually level out as broader adoption occurs and the ability for major players to manipulate price diminishes. Before building a large position in crypto, it may be more important to develop a strong understanding of the technology and history.

As far as bitcoin is concerned: my only problem with bitcoin (or other cryptocurrency) is simply what is it pegged to? Allegedly energy consumption to mine the crypto. It is not backed by any physical commodity or intrinsic value which is my primary concern. What keeps cryptocurrency from being manipulated or devalued?

I like the many things the blockchain has to offer though: decentralization (thats a good thing!), anonymity (cool, you can't really tax that!), optimization (entities can create multiple crypto-currencies, if one fails another one will take its place)... all of this is very good and healthy.

However, by definition it is still a fiat currency. Fiat currency - as been proven throughout history - never lasts forever. It always is manipulated, becomes devalued and is abused at the expense of everyone else using it. So I remain cautious. I think its a good platform to diversify some or a percentage of your wealth into, as a temporary safe haven. But as far as long term integrity? This will be very interesting to see what happens in the future!

Proceed with caution if you intend to invest or diversify wealth into it. I might dip my toes into the water at some point, just to get a feel for it.

Not even close, you mistake market for capital, so to begin with you're more confirming my point than denying it, though your conclusion is a textbook simplification of it. Plus the keynes/friedman conflict thrown in to double the word count. Also, you should learn what hypo- means before using it so incorrectly, just saying, but I'm sure that's just semantics in the case you're making.

>about consolidating and centralizing control over the market place
Who would deny the effective investment and growth of the capital itself, the opposite of the market? It's honest monetarist capitalism done by the entity that controls the money, if you have a problem with that you must have a secret love affair with keynesian economics yourself.

Effective investment and growth of capital increases competition within the market place, making the market place GROW. That's healthy but not quite what I'm talking about. I'm talking about corruption and third world Keynesian-style economics and its flaws.

>It's honest monetarist capitalism done by the entity that controls the money.

Not currently: who controls the issuance of currency? The central banking system. What is that currency pegged to? What value is it backed by? If nothing then its an endless increasing issuance of paper fiat currency which will lead to significant devaluation over time. Is this central bank (The Fed) a government entity? No it is not - do look that up because thats important to note. What keeps them (the central bankers) from creating currency from thin air, consolidating wealth for themselves and turning around and buying everything up to enrich themselves at everyone else's expense? This has already has been happening for many years! These bankers now own large shares of major corporations, they've consolidated control over much of the market place. These corporations which central bankers heavily invested into are the ones who buy off our politicians to maintain their own special interests at everyone else's expense.

In an honest economic system they would not have been allowed to get away with such monopolistic activity. In an honest economic system these central banks would not be allowed to create an endless supply of fiat currency either. Competition in the market place quite frankly no longer exists like it used to. And at this point The Fed has created so much digital 'helicopter money' out of thin air the US dollar has devalued by 98% at this point in time, which has created massive inflation and the average worker/consumer knows this. Just wait until our currency hyperinflates in the future and a can of beans will cost you $20 with the current salary you make. "Tough luck" at that point, huh?

As Jim Willie has noted: QE to infinite! And that my friend will lead to hyperinflation and a crash. And these central bankers know it too, that's why they secretly hoard gold and silver and have offshore luxury resorts to flee to. How fucking convenient!

If we had honest monetary policy - such as the gold standard - many of the current problems we face (including the reliance on foreign oil, the outsourcing of our industries and consumer reliance on China & India) would not have existed. The problems began many years ago after we de-pegged the dollar from gold and joined OPEC nations within the Middle East to back our dollar through petro trade.

Big mistake! And now the commies in China are about to create a petroyuan to challenge our petrodollar in world trade. Another problem is that China now holds most of the world's gold in their reserves (like American once did way back in the day) so the commies outsmarted us BIGLY.

And its all because we decided to abandon honest monetary policy - Austrian economics!
