Max and Stacy reflect on the data and charts from 10 years after the financial crisis of 2008. Post-crisis and during the span of the Obama administration, the top 1% got much richer while the bottom 90% got very, very much poorer. The data doesn’t lie. In the second half, Max interviews Mish Shedlock of MishTalk.com about the economic and inequality disaster that central banks have wrought. They also discuss the latest jobs and GDP numbers.
'President Trump has revealed that his regime is totally in the hands of the Zionist warmongers. ...America’s renewal alone in the world of the fabricated conflict with Iran is proof that US foreign policy is in the hands of Israel.'
By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: We can now dismiss all hope that Trump’s campaign promises to pull out of Syria, normalize relations with Russia and stop the offshoring of American jobs will ever become US policies. By dishonoring the US government’s word and pulling out of the Iran nuclear non-proliferation agreement, an agreement signed by the US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, and Iran, President Trump has revealed that his regime is totally in the hands of the Zionist warmongers. It was already evident, but America’s renewal alone in the world of the fabricated conflict with Iran is proof that US foreign policy is in the hands of Israel. All you have to do is to watch Nikki Haley, US Ambassador to the UN, groveling at the feet of AIPEC, to watch US Secretary of State Pompeo groveling at the feet of Netanyahu, to see the glee all over the face of neoconservative Israeli agent John Bolton, the National Security Adviser to the President of the United States, from his realization that his conflict agenda with Iran has prevailed. Indeed the entire Trump regime are such dedicated grovelers at Israel’s feet that the Trump regime comes across as a barbaric tribe groveling before the King of Kings.

By Bettina Arndt: Why are we putting up with feminists silencing debate on key social issues like domestic violence? A major drama has been playing out in Perth this week where I am orchestrating a campaign to protest the dismissal of Rob Tiller, a male counsellor from Relationships Australia WA, who was fired for posting on his private Facebook page an article I wrote on domestic violence. My article, Always Beating Up on Men, summarised the latest official statistics and research on domestic violence, providing evidence that most family violence is two-way, involving women as well as men. Relationships Australia WA (RAWA) denies this evidence and promotes a feminist analysis of gendered power relations.” This means in policy and in practice men are treated by the organisation as the sole perpetrators of family violence. Unlike the equivalent organisations in some other states, RAWA offers no support to male victims and in effect, denies their existence. Rob Tiller got into trouble by talking about counselling violent couples in email discussion with a professional men’s network and saying that the research evidence I presented rang true with his professional experience. That was enough to get him fired. Rob Tiller is an experienced, well-respected counsellor who worked for this government-funded counselling organisation for the past eight years and has had an exemplary record.
corbett: There is in fact a Middle Eastern nation that is in fact in control of a vast, undeclared stockpile of nuclear weapons. This nation does have the capability of deploying those weapons anywhere in the region. It is not a signatory to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty and its arsenal has never been inspected by any international agency. But this nation is not Iran. It's Israel.
By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: Trump is a disaster for the environment, for wildlife, and for human life. Trump has handed over to polluters oil and mineral rights in US National Monuments. Mining will now deface what was before Trump protected national monuments, and oil drilling will destroy the Arctic National Refuge. He has appointed polluters to run the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and he has waived rules in order to comply with the polluting industries’ wish list. Trump wants to cut EPA funding by 23 percent and to cut funding for restoration programs for the Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay by 90 percent. He wants to pay for the upkeep of national parks by expanding oil and gas exploration on public lands. But he doesn’t hesitate to send the equivalent of the annual environmental budget in war criminal missile attacks on Syria and plans for attacking Iran. To be quite clear, Trump is privatizing national property and allowing a small handful of polluting corporations to plunder public assets while he builds a case for war against Iran. The assault on the environment started with VP Dick Cheney, but Trump has unleashed private plunder of public assets to an extreme degree. No one has ever explained how assets owned by the American people can be turned over to a few friends and supporters of the ruling elite in Washington.
