A Progressive Case For Hard Money

Max and Stacy are joined by Alasdair Macleod of Goldmoney.com for his hard money pitch as a solution to many of the global economic and monetary woes causing societal unrest (from Occupy Wall Street to the Yellow Vests) and despair (like the more than 75,000 annual opioid overdoses in the U.S.). They discuss gold as a unit of account and what that would look like. They also examine the newly popular Modern Monetary Theory whereby the government can print money for the people rather than just for banksters, and why this could lead to more problems requiring urgent solutions. They also discuss an end to globalization and how that might restore national economies.

Iran Seizes Foreign Tanker "Smuggling" Fuel In The Gulf

By Tyler Durden: Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) says it has seized a foreign vessel with 12-crew members carrying one million barrels of oil. In an official Iranian media statement early on Thursday, the country's military asserted the tanker was caught "smuggling" the fuel through the Strait of Hormuz
While details to the breaking story remain confused, with some early reports speculating it could be reference to the Riah tanker which since the past weekend disappeared as it drifted toward Iranian waters in the Strait of Hormuz, what is clear is that Tehran is ramping up the pressure, perhaps now making good on its longtime threat to cut off global shipping through the vital oil passageway
"A foreign vessel smuggling one million liters of fuel in the Lark Island of the Persian Gulf has been seized," state run ISNA said, adding that the ship was seized on Sunday.

The Lie Factory 'CNN' Is Collapsing ~ Thank Goodness

By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts: CNN abandoned journalism and became a propaganda ministry for the Democratic National Committee and the corrupt upper echelons of the CIA and FBI.  After three years of telling the most outrageous lies ever associated with an alleged news organization in an alleged democracy, CNN’s viewership collapsed.  CNN turned propaganda ministry saw its primetime viewers shrink by 40%.  Even insouciant Americans could see that CNN was nothing but a lie factory.  https://russia-insider.com/en/cnn-continues-implode-after-russiahoax-its-much-worse-people-realize/ri27465 
One would have thought CNN would have learned a lesson.  But apparently not. The scum or fools, whichever it is, that runs CNN decided instead to tell even more lies.  The propaganda ministry concocted an even less believable story than the ones that had driven away 40% of CNN viewers.  The story “reported” by Alex Marquardt goes as follows:
Assange, being a Russian spy, turned the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he had asylum into a command post for arranging a US presidential election outcome that pleased the Russians.  Marquardt spins a fantasy of how Assange from his embassy base, undeterred by Ecuadoran President Correa or the Ecuadoran ambassador to the UK, and aided with deliveries of hacked materials and suspicious meetings with Rusians and world-class hackers, undermined the American presidential election.

Attacks On "White, Male" Moon Landing Prove No Achievement Is Beyond Feminist SJW Virtue-Signaling Rage

Authored by Igor Ogorodnev: Attempts to diminish the triumph of Apollo 11 and to reassign credit don’t just taint the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, but presage the technological decline of the US if it persists with identity politics...
With the Founding Fathers now rarely mentioned in the media without side notes about their slave ownership, and the Betsy Ross flag is offensive to Colin Kaepernick and Nike, there is nothing new about liberal attempts to strike at the very heart of American identity.
But – leaving aside the conspiracy theorists – the moment Neil Armstrong stepped on the surface of the Moon on July 20, 1969 was objectively such a universal milestone that to qualify it seems a fight against human endeavor itself.

Turkey And Russia Pushed Together By US/EU Aggression, Zionist Lapdogs Greece & Cyprus The Losers

RI: If Russian money talks,  there can be no doubt it is telling President Vladimir Putin to give Russia’s relationship with Turkey a priority comparable, almost, with China and India. The  message eliminates Greece from the Kremlin’s consideration; it also diminishes Cyprus. But does this mean there is a powerful Turkish lobby working inside the Kremlin? Does it mean that Russia’s shift on the economic front towards Turkey is causing a strategic switch, reversing the three-hundred year history of tsarist, imperial and Soviet military and security strategy?  Can the Turkish Air Force ambush of a Russian Su-24 fighter and murder of one of its pilots in November 2015; the assassination by a Turkish policeman of Ambassador Andrei Karlov in December 2016; eighteen months of embargo  on Turkish imports to Russia, December 2015 to June 2017; and the failure of the Idlib pact of September 2018 have all been erased from Russian memory, to be replaced by the trust Russian officials now insist they have towards their Turkish counterparts?
