“Straight people are an oppressed majority. We will fight for the right
of straights everywhere to express pride in themselves without fear of
judgement and hate. The day will come when straights will finally be
included as equals among all of the other orientations.”
Max and Stacy discuss the fact that trade wars, tariffs, and sanctions are being waged on multiple fronts abroad, while back at home the streets of Los Angeles are bleached regularly as a solution to the problem of extreme poverty and homelessness in the city that benefits from the free ride of global Intellectual Property protection. They liken the disinfectant solution to that of how BigAg in America treats its produce - chicken are not raised in human or sanitary conditions as in Europe, but instead factory farmed in excrement and then washed down with chlorine.
By Philip Giraldi: US Voters looking ahead to 2020 are being bombarded with soundbites from the twenty plus Democratic would-be candidates. That Joe Biden is apparently leading the pack according to opinion polls should come as no surprise as he stands for nothing apart from being the Establishment favorite who will tirelessly work to support the status quo. The most interesting candidate is undoubtedly Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, who is a fourth term Congresswoman from Hawaii, where she was born and raised. She is also the real deal on national security, having been-there and done-it through service as an officer with the Hawaiian National Guard on a combat deployment in Iraq. Though in Congress full time, she still performs her Guard duty. Tulsi’s own military experience notwithstanding, she gives every indication of being honestly anti-war. In the speech announcing her candidacy she pledged “focus on the issue of war and peace” to “end the regime-change wars that have taken far too many lives and undermined our security by strengthening terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda.” She referred to the danger posed by blundering into a possible nuclear war and indicated her dismay over what appears to be a re-emergence of the Cold War.

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: The story line is going out that the economic boom is weakening and the Federal Reserve has to get the printing press running again.The Fed uses the money to purchase bonds, which drives up the prices of bonds and lowers the interest rate.The theory is that the lower interest rate encourages consumer spending and business investment and that this increase in consumer and business spending results in more output and employment. The Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, and Bank of England have been wedded to this policy for a decade, and the Japanese for longer, without stimulating business investment.Rather than borrowing at low interest rates in order to invest more, corporations borrowed in order to buy back their stock.In other words, some corporations after using all their profits to buy back their own stock went into debt in order to further reduce their market capitalization! Far from stimulating business investment, the liquidity supplied by the Federal Reserve drove up stock and bond prices and spilled over into real estate.
