It interesting how western style war doctrines have failed to consider the destruction of infrastructure on their home turf ever since the bombing of London in WW2.

Looks like the Fed buying back more debt this morning, ZH says $80B today. Because they can. Create money out of thin air to keep the central planned economy via the banking cartel still going. Now NF of course will go cheer on the Fed and say thanks for saving the world but a person with independent thought would look at the cause/effect and realize the central banking cartel is the cause of the problem in the first place. Much like China trade war is not the cause of any economic damage, it is the massive debt bubble built around the world for decades but most significantly since 2008 as the central banks stepped in then to "save the world" and idiots cheered. When you keep saying you are saving the world perhaps its time for everyone to say they should stop destroying the world in the first place.

What's interesting is that there are thousands of people claiming to be experts setting monetary policy and every time money created from nothing is used to paper over the fundamental corrupt nature of the system these same people say they did not account for some extraneous event. With sound money you don't need monetary policy. People can manage their lives without centeal planners intentionally stealing their wealth.

But that's too much tin foil talk for today. All we have known for 100 years is central planning of the most important part of our lives and the last thing many would want is to be set free and make their own way. Much like a slave prefers the safety and basic needs provided by their master. The master knows best, do not ask for freedom - it is nothing but doom and destruction.

I think the wheels just fell off the wagon on this recent Saudi incident. Good will around the world for the west is diminishing alarmingly fast these days.

But that good will is being directed to Trump so that's good. Unless you are demanding your wars. No action against NK and for a few months no action against Iran now. Not much in the news about ISIS and talks of pulling out of Afghanistan if there would be cooperation with DJT's plans. Kind of hard to live in fear and terror so as to demand more government removal of your rights to protect citizens from these foreign threats when people in charge are saying there aren't any real threats that can't be handled without military action. Pretty soon the military will be back home protecting the country's border rather than waging war on the other side of the world claiming its protecting citizens yet the borders are wide open to many factors that are in fact destroying peoples lives. Kind of a head scratcher about modern times, the military was always about protecting a country yet it is impossible to use the military to guard its own borders to accomplish that goal.

It is curious that some drugged up rebels could build drones capable of evading air defenses of a country with one of the highest military budgets. Maybe something to think about. Maybe they were a little more hi tech and operated by parties other than Huithi rebels.

Also of note is oil hasn't moved in price that much, same pricing as July even though it was the most significant thing to occur in the oil world in a generation. Or so we are told.

No kidding. What’s up that no air defense at all took action. Or is it just NATO hardware is that good!

Well, I think whoever had actual ownership of those cruise missiles at launch time will forever remain a mystery, and it’s possible it was a non government organization.

There are three or four logical reasons why no defensive systems attempted to stop them.

#1 The defensive systems are designed to not target missiles produced by the same country?

#2 Someone has developed a remote control to turn off a military. Sort of like an upsized version of a garage door opener that can “shut er down”

The other reasons take less imagination.

Been quite a bit going on in regards to the opiod crisis. Remember things like drug companies being able to do their own inspections at the factories in China rather than government, or unregistered shipments coming into North America for distribution, or how distributors were handling massive amounts of opioids in relation to actual people needing prescriptions. An opiod crisis doesn't just happen, there is a long list of connections. And is why Purdue Pharma has declared bankruptcy over the +$10B lawsuit it. It is +$10B because many entities filing the lawsuit are not accepting the present $12B settlement. And this is also being tied into the distribution network therefore being pursued as a RICO action. Basically the opiod crisis was directly caused by big Pharma and its distribution network acting like drug lords.

This article is an anatomy of how government through Congress and Senate hamstrung the DEA from being able to limit the actions of the opiod cartel. Rather long but interesting as we look at what is happening right now with who is actually responsible for the opiod crisis (ie not some street level dealer) and how it came about.
A common theme these days is "alliances" that are consistently formed to implement their will through government. In this case all the "competing" drug manufacturers create an alliance to get government to limit DEA authority. Another example is in the Plant Breeders Rights sphere the "competitors" have all gotten together and put together a team to work as one entity to have government enact the wishes of the alliance. The belief is that once its mission accomplished these companies will go back to being cut throat free market capitalists trying to out do each other in order to be profitable. It's a common theme and there are more examples.

This is old news about the deals Biden and other government actors helped Bidens and Kerry's sons make in Ukraine and China. Posted probably two years ago about these things. Just look for MSM stories on Ivanka selling product internationally because of her dad's fame to cover up this news item.





It does make you wonder exactly how you do go about discussing or investigating someone in government for corruption. I mean, if you are now in government and thus apparently a dictatorship in full control of the investigation and prosecution of any matter then anytime an ex-government official is suspected of illegal act it is automatically a partisan attack. Under what circumstances is it not? Look at Canada right now where the RCMP will not investigate the present government for obstruction of the SNC Lavalin affair. Apparently we the citizens are not supposed to be influenced by any results that show government was corrupt before we vote. The storyline is that if a government is operating in a corrupt manner then this should not be stated because voters may decide it is not desirable to put corrupt people at the helm of the country and therefore vote for someone else. Yeah, we can't have that. An investigation should only happen regardless of election timing if we had government that is accountable to the people. In such a world all resources would be applied to get to the bottom of the matter in time for the election for the exact reason of letting the people know what is true. Trudeau's self appointed RCMP commissioner may have something to do with that but who knows.
