All that’s left is for them to start shooting. Democrats signaled in the runup to the looming conclusion of President Trump’s impeachment proceedings that they’ll simply refuse to accept his all-but-certain acquittal because his “sham” trial lacked proper witnesses and evidence. The House has no power to set the rules of the Senate. Nor does Chucky have the power to overrule the procedures the body he sits in adopted by majority vote. “He will not be acquitted,” Pelosi said Thursday. “You cannot be acquitted if you don’t have a trial, and you don’t have a trial if you don’t have witnesses and documentation and that.” Trump will be acquitted. You can disagree with the outcome but you either respect the result or you’re demanding violence... http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=238021
Doug Casey on What the International Ruling Class Have Planned for You
The people who attend Davos are all welfare statists. They’re not necessarily socialists, insofar as they don’t want to see government nationalize industries. Most understand how totally dysfunctional that is and that they don’t really benefit from it. Strict socialism, defined as State ownership of the means of production, is off the table. They prefer economic fascism, where a powerful State can funnel wealth to the corporations the elite own or control. They’re happy to throw some table scraps to the unwashed masses, of course. Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is the best way to do that. Again, they’re not socialists. They’re welfare statists. Completely opportunistic and absolutely unprincipled. Despicable people, actually. Few are entrepreneurial, independent thinkers or free-market oriented. Those types would be disruptive at Davos, and if they’re ever invited, it would be only once.
Other than celebrities, court intellectuals, and publicity-oriented multibillionaires, the attendees are almost all bureaucrats and politicians who thrive on stolen money. But it’s no longer easily visible briefcases full of cash. That’s quaint in today’s world. They steal indirectly, by making sure they benefit from state regulations, state favors, and the inflation of the currency. Bribes are in the form of tax-deducible donations to charitable foundations and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). That’s not only much safer, but the money is vastly bigger, and the way it’s rigged adds to their prestige. Both making and taking a bribe disguises the miscreants as philanthropists and do-gooders when they use an NGO as a funnel.
But getting back to their economic views, they’re all for “quantitative easing.” Printing money—MMT—directly benefits the stock market. It raises corporate earnings, and much of the newly created cash directly boosts the prices of shares. It’s really sweet, if you’re an insider.... https://internationalman.com/articles/doug-casey-on-what-the-international-ruling-class-have-planned-for-you/
A group of 137 countries and jurisdictions agreed to move ahead with negotiations to address tax challenges of the digital economy, according to a statement released Friday by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). The countries “affirm their commitment to reach an agreement on a consensus-based solution by the end of 2020,” the statement said.
I was a Roman Catholic for the first 29 years of my life, until the day I got saved and became a born again Christian, and I have spent the past tens years in this ministry of Now The End Begins to warn people about the lies and evil foundations of the counterfeit Christian Church. So it makes me happy when high-ranking and currently serving members of the Roman Catholic Church says things like what you will see in this article today that backs me up.
