2020 Election election Intelwars Joe Biden Joe biden ice cream Joe biden milkshake journalism Media Bias

With a handful of days until the election, press asks Biden: ‘What flavor milkshake did you get?’

With 16 days until the election, and so many unanswered questions surrounding Joe Biden’s campaign, the media asked the Democratic presidential nominee the critical question of: “What flavor milkshake did you get?” That was the pivotal query that the press decided to ask the possible next president with a little over two weeks until the election.

The media were presented with an opportunity to ask Biden a question regarding his campaign on Sunday. The press could have asked if he is in favor of court-packing or asked about his response to the allegations of Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings, which one report links the former vice president to. Possibly fearing being attacked by Biden for asking any questions about the New York Post’s bombshell report like CBS News’ Bo Erickson did, the press decided to ask Joe about his milkshake.

On Sunday, Biden made a stop in Durham, North Carolina, where he visited the fast-food chain Cookout. Biden and his granddaughter Finnegan ordered milkshakes from the North Carolina-based burger joint.

As Biden walked away with his frosty treats, a reporter shouted, “Mr. Biden! Mr. Biden! What flavor did you get?”

The Hill media reporter Joe Concha commented on the hard-hitting journalism.

“There has never been a presidential candidate less scrutinized that the 2020 Democratic nominee,” Concha said. “And this is after political media screaming about transparency for the past four years. You either hold the powerful or potentially accountable or you don’t.”

New York Magazine and HuffPost contributor Yashar Ali tweeted, “‘What flavor did you get?’ – you don’t need to ask the candidate this question. Find out from staff. Two weeks out, a party nominee should be asked more substantive questions. This isn’t the first Iowa trip!”

The question about Biden’s milkshake somehow became even worse when CBS political correspondent Ed O’Keefe reported that the candidate would likely call a lid until Thursday’s presidential debate in Nashville.

“This week is mostly about debate prep,” O’Keefe said Sunday on “Face the Nation.” “He will not be seen again after today until Thursday night in Nashville at that next debate. So they’re going to keep him focused on that. That’s a signal that they believe this is still a very big opportunity for them to provide one last contrast with the president and they have to prepare him for potential attacks from the president.”

On Friday, Biden had a sparsely attended rally in Detroit, where he relied on a huge teleprompter through much of his speech.

CRAWL OVER BROKEN GLASS: ALL-TIME HIGHS IMMINENT!

This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends. 

Do you think Donald Trump is going to win or do you think it’s Biden? Whatever your answer is, MY RESPONSE remains the same: MARKETS are headed M-U-C-H H-I-G-H-E-R!

The amount of cash on the sidelines that’s EARNING NOTHING is just SO EXAGGERATED that we expect that another $1tn to $1.5tn is HEADING BACK to the stock market and risk assets.

Treat this pandemic AT FACE VALUE: highly contagious and lethal only to a very small percentage of the population.

The media has convinced some people that they’re living THROUGH END TIMES, but I implore you to shake it off and THINK FOR YOURSELF now that you KNOW the facts. You should be protecting your OWN FAMILY and your OWN CAREER from imminent danger and FINANCIAL RUIN from DRACONIAN measures being implemented.

Wake up!

This is a giant wealth transfer; the ramifications of what just happened to the world in the past few months are yet TO BE DETERMINED. I will not be doing you a disservice by encouraging you to GET INSPIRED to get on with your life IMMEDIATELY.

The markets believe they’ve FIGURED IT OUT; they’re betting on a BIDEN VICTORY and a massive stimulus package that will offset the tax hikes and all the increased regulations that will SURELY COME with a Democrat victory; they believe America has HAD ENOUGH of Trump, but I’m not convinced it’s that cut and dry.

I’ll crawl over broken glass to make sure you TRULY UNDERSTAND that there’s a BULL MARKET going on, no matter HOW UNLIKELY or how weird it is to put MONEY TO WORK.

You don’t ALWAYS have to understand why prices are rising, but you SURE AS HELL must have seen the gains that we’ve BEEN MAKING – they’re off the charts!

Your heart will tell you when TO MOVE. Your fate has NOTHING TO DO with this election; the country’s future has a lot TO DO with it, but you have to SEPARATE FROM THE HERD – are you ready to accept BETTER CONDITIONS?

Entire industries, whole economies, great nations, and giant corporations will be built as a result of this COVID-19 WORLD; take what’s yours and STOP AT NOTHING.

Be a dreamer.

cash piles Donald Trump Economy election experts Federal Reserve Forecasting Headline News Intelwars investors Joe Biden lower rates Precious Metals Rally silver bulls stimulus Wealth

EVERYONE AND THEIR MAMA BETTING AGAINST SILVER!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz with Wealth Research Group.

Are there any SILVER BULLS left out there? It looks like the rally is over, the EXCITEMENT IS DONE, and that no one outside of the SILVER BUG COMMUNITY has any positive sentiment towards the QUASI-INDUSTRIAL/PRECIOUS metal.

The market believes that BIDEN’S GOT THIS, so much more money is exiting silver than entering it!

The market is betting that the massive CASH PILES, which investors have collectively shelved on the sidelines (most investors are SHAKING IN THEIR BOOTS, because of Trump’s ACTION-PACKED term in office) will exit the money-market accounts and find their way into real estate, equities, and commodities.

Investors believe Biden would have a SOOTHING EFFECT on the economy; they’ve got A TON riding on higher interest rates — the market is SUPER-BEARISH on bonds!

No one believes that they can go ANY LOWER and reach even more negativity, in real terms.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Are you SEEING THIS? Have you ever seen something MORE OBVIOUS?

Man, this is going to cause so MUCH PAIN for these speculators; I can’t wait to see STOCKS SOAR, METALS RAGE, and the dollar pull a U-TURN on everyone!

Don’t let your GUARD DOWN now, because that’s what happened to MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of investors in March and April; Wall Street PULLED THE RUG from under them, convincing them to stay in cash, while they were buying stocks with STEEP DISCOUNTS!

We gave you options, though, with our watchlists and we’ve been RIGHT. The chart above shows the world is betting on higher rates — what do you think WE’RE DOING?

With the World Health Organization now openly DEMANDING quarantines and lockdowns stop, with governments putting MORE STRATEGIC and far more sophisticated solutions in their place, the markets expect MORE STIMULUS, as do we.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Here’s what every DOOM AND GLOOM investor feels in his heart of hearts, and he ends up MISSING OUT on the now +14 stocks that we outlined in 2020 ALONE that are up over +35%:

  1. The markets are rigged.
  2. Governments are drowning in debt.
  3. It’s a fake economy, a house of cards that can TOPPLE OVER at any moment.
  4. Stocks are historically-expensive; it’s a super bubble.
  5. “If I buy into this lie, I’ll end up losing a fortune.”

I’ve heard this LAST ONE (No.5) since 2009!

If the forecasters of -80% price drops, the preachers of SHORT TSLA and the instigators of not owning FAANG stocks would reveal their track records, you’d see that the EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES.

I still hear SUPER-POPULAR guests on shows predicting that gold is going to $800 and that we’ll see “1999 levels” in the stock market.

What a disservice these well-meaning frightened commentators do to their audience, who are enthusiastically convinced that the world is COMING TO AN END.

For years, people actually asked me how they get their hands on the actual stock certificates since they thought the brokerage firm was GOING UNDER.

2008 scarred the mentality of millions of people; they can’t trust anything or anyone anymore and that actually has a NEGATIVE PRICE attached to it.

I think silver is going to ALL-TIME HIGHS, due to the cyclical bear market that the dollar has begun. The world isn’t going to end; it is going to GET RICHER — the only question is will JEFF BEZOS grow his wealth to $300bn before you grow yours to 7-figures?

This is your moment; now, more than ever, you have a REAL CHANCE to say:

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

It’s your turn; put your CAPE ON and be a superman.

Commentary Conspiracy election Election 2020 Intelwars Politics Technology The 2020 Election The Big Social Media Companies

Are the big social media companies literally trying to determine who wins the presidential election?

In 2016, the big social media companies were criticized for allowing others to influence the outcome of the election, but in 2020 the big social media companies are directly interfering in the election more than anyone else is by a very wide margin.  They insist that they have a duty to prevent the flow of “harmful information”, but whenever they act it always seems to help Democrats and hurt Republicans.  It has become obvious that Facebook, Twitter and other large social media companies are trying to help Democrats win, and that is especially true when it comes to the presidential election.  No matter what you think of Joe Biden and no matter what you think of Donald Trump, all Americans should want the election to be fair.  Unfortunately, the big social media companies have discovered that they have the ability to sway public opinion on a massive scale, and this is the first election in which they are really flexing those muscles.  But if we allow those that control the levers of power on the Internet to determine the outcomes of our elections from now on, our system is doomed and the American experiment will be over.

On Thursday, the New York Post published a bombshell article about Hunter Biden that included some really shocking new revelations.  As soon as I read the article I recognized that it was very newsworthy and I immediately linked to it on The Most Important News, and other conservative websites did the same thing.

Meanwhile, Facebook and Twitter were working aggressively to limit the spread of the article

Facebook and Twitter took steps on Wednesday to limit the spread of a controversial New York Post article critical of Joe Biden, sparking outrage among conservatives and stoking debate over how social media platforms should tackle misinformation ahead of the US election.

In an unprecedented step against a major news publication, Twitter blocked users from posting links to the Post story or photos from the unconfirmed report. Users attempting to share the story were shown a notice saying: “We can’t complete this request because this link has been identified by Twitter or our partners as being potentially harmful.”

If Facebook and Twitter had taken similar steps when stuff was leaked about Trump over the years, we could forgive them for this sort of censorship.

But no matter where the leaks come from, and no matter how sketchy the sources are, the big social media companies always allow questionable stories about Trump to spread like wildfire.

They only step in when a story is going to be “harmful” to Biden, and that is fundamentally unfair.

In addition to preventing the spread of the story, Twitter actually decided to lock the New York Post out of their entire account.

When White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany tweeted about this story, they locked her account too.

20 years ago, it would have been unthinkable for someone to try to censor White House officials, but now it is happening on a regular basis.

Prominent conservatives like James Woods and Jack Posobiec were also locked out of their accounts by Twitter, and if you try to tweet any of the primary material mentioned in the New York Post story you might get locked out of your account too.

But anything goes when it comes to Trump.  You can say anything you like and spread any sort of wild rumors that you wish, and they will never do anything to you.

Republicans in the Senate such as Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz were absolutely furious when they realized what Facebook and Twitter were doing, and they demanded answers.

Unfortunately, Facebook and Twitter are not backing down.

And why should they?  They have been getting away with censoring political speech for years.

Earlier this month, conservative host Mark Levin was absolutely outraged when Facebook decided to shadowban his account in the middle of election season…

Facebook has just sent us this message. It’s a clear effort at censorship. Every link I post is from a legitimate source. But because so many people are seeing what I’m posting and we’re within weeks of the election it’s clear that Facebook is trying to influence the election’s outcome. It’s also clear Facebook is pushing a leftwing agenda.

Why don’t we ever hear about liberal voices getting censored like this?

Even more alarming is the fact that some Republican candidates for Congress are not being allowed to buy ads for their campaigns at all.  Aja Smith is an African-American conservative running in California’s 41st Congressional District, and Facebook has completely banned her from running political advertisements…

Just tried to run a FB ad to promote my FB page and it told me I cannot run political ads or promote my page! I am shadow-banned on Twitter now FB is giving me a hard time.

And other Republican candidates in California also report that they have been shadowbanned by the big social media companies

Buzz Patterson, candidate for California’s 7th Congressional District told the Globe he and his campaign have been censored and noticed shadow banning. Patterson has 114,100 Twitter followers, but few retweeted posts.

Eric Early, candidate for California’s 28th Congressional District says it appears Facebook has limited his followers at 23,000. On Twitter, Early has 84,800 followers, but his Tweets don’t get retweeted as much as they should.

If we allow Facebook and Twitter to keep doing this, it will just get worse with each passing election.

But so far nobody has found a way to stop them.

And once Democrats are in control in Washington, there will be very little that will be able to be done.

If Democrats are able to take the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives in November, the big social media companies will deserve a ton of the credit.

They may think that they are “saving America”, but the truth is that they are actually killing it.

In our entire history, political speech has never been stifled the way that it is being stifled today.  Our Constitution may still say that we are entitled to free speech, but those that control our most important online gathering places have a much different agenda.

2020 Election election Intelwars Politics The 2020 Election Vote Voting

A 9 hour wait? Early voting is shattering previous levels as voters flock to the polls in droves

Would you be willing to wait more than 9 hours to cast a vote on the very first day of early voting?  As you will see below, that is precisely what just happened in Georgia.  We have become accustomed to seeing long lines to vote on Election Day, but in 2020 we are witnessing colossal lines to vote three weeks before the election.  And this is happening even though tens of millions of Americans will be casting their votes through the mail this year.  The numbers that I am going to share with you in this article are eye-popping, and they seem to indicate that there is an unprecedented amount of interest in this election.  In recent months there has been a tremendous nationwide effort to encourage people to vote in 2020, and it appears that it is working.

A professor at the University of Florida named Michael McDonald is compiling voting data from all 50 states, and his numbers show that more than 11.9 million Americans have voted so far in 2020.

But back in 2016, only about 1.4 million voters had cast ballots as of October 16th.

Of course one of the big reasons why so many Americans have voted already is because voting by mail has been aggressively pushed all over the nation this time around.

According to Professor McDonald, a whopping 76,183,844 mail ballots have been requested by voters up to this point.  Most of those ballots have not been returned yet, but it is probably safe to assume that most of them eventually will be sent in.

In the end, we could potentially have 50 or 60 million Americans vote by mail, and that is an absolutely staggering number.

To put this in perspective, back in 2016 President Trump received 62 million votes.  So for there to be more than 76 million mail ballots floating around out there right now is almost unimaginable.

But even though so many of us will be voting by mail, it certainly has not dampened the enthusiasm for in-person early voting around the nation.  When early voting opened in Georgia on Monday, the lines were unlike anything that we have ever seen before.  According to CNBC, people were waiting in line for “as long as 9 hours and 39 minutes”…

In-person early voting began Monday morning in Georgia and Tuesday morning in Texas, bringing high turnout and long lines.

NBC News reported on Monday that waits at Georgia voting sites lasted as long as 9 hours and 39 minutes. Counties in the state with large non-White populations in particular reported long lines, supporting research that shows race is a key indicator in how long a voter waits in line at a polling station.

Would you wait in line that long to cast your vote?

If it was me, I think that I would have just come back another day.

But this is how passionate people are about this election.  According to the Secretary of State, an all-time record 126,876 votes were cast early in Georgia on Monday alone

The Secretary of State’s Office confirmed to Channel 2 Action News that Georgia has broken the record for the amount of people voting in person on the first day of early voting.

According to the Secretary of State’s Office, 126,876 Georgians voted on Monday. The previous record was about 90,000 voters.

If you can believe it, some Georgia voters were still waiting in line at 10 PM to cast their votes.

Elsewhere, early voting began in Texas on Tuesday, and the number of early votes cast in Harris County also set a brand new record high

Officials in Harris County, Texas’ most populous county, on Tuesday afternoon reported a record high first day of early voting with 68,000 ballots cast. And that was with five hours of voting still to go.

Many political operatives on the left believe that the fact that so many people are voting early is a good sign for their candidates, but we will have to wait and see if that actually turns out to be true.

Traditionally, Democrats have been more likely to vote early and they have also been more likely to vote by mail.  This was certainly the case in 2016, but Hillary Clinton lost that election.

So keep that in mind as we discuss the following numbers.

Some states report the party affiliation of voters that return their ballots by mail, and Professor McDonald has been constantly updating that data on his website.  The following are the latest figures that we have for the key swing states of Florida, North Carolina, Iowa and Pennsylvania…

Florida

Democrats 904,217 returned ballots
Republicans 519,876 returned ballots
Minor 20,093 returned ballots
No Party Affiliation 336,398 returned ballots

North Carolina

Democrats 244,890 returned ballots
Republicans 84,419 returned ballots
Minor 1,659 returned ballots
No Party Affiliation 147,188 returned ballots

Iowa

Democrats 150,881 returned ballots
Republicans 63,079 returned ballots
Minor 753 returned ballots
No Party Affiliation 35,554 returned ballots

Pennsylvania

Democrats 338,504 returned ballots
Republicans 64,390 returned ballots
Minor 2,380 returned ballots
No Party Affiliation 32,168 returned ballots

Once again, I want to emphasize the fact that it was always expected that Democrats would vote by mail in far greater numbers than Republicans.

But the fact that Democrats have such a massive lead in returned ballots in the critical swing state of Pennsylvania has got to be causing concern among Republican officials.

The good news for Republicans is that everyone is expecting the GOP to have an overwhelming turnout on Election Day itself.  Throughout this election cycle President Trump has been critical of voting by mail, and so this is going to encourage the vast majority of his hardcore supporters to show up in person to vote.

And when you vote in person, there is much less of a chance that your ballot will end up in a dumpster somewhere.

The votes that are actually cast on Election Day will be counted very rapidly like they normally are, and those votes should skew very heavily toward President Trump.

The votes that are sent in by mail will take longer to fully count, and Democrats will be counting on those votes to swing the presidential race to Biden if Trump initially has a lead.

But without a doubt it will not look good if one candidate has a substantial lead on election night but another candidate ends up winning once all of the votes are finally counted.

Having multiple ways to vote may be more “convenient”, but it also opens up a door for all sorts of potential problems, and I have a feeling that quite a few things are going to go wrong this November.

asset returns conditions corporate behavior Debt demand Donald Trump Economy election Gold Headline News inflation Intelwars Joe Biden Silver stimulus plan

OVER MY DEAD BODY: Gold $4,000 – BIDEN SWORN IN!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck with Portfolio Wealth Global.

If you conducted your own DUE DILIGENCE and followed our Watchlists (1, 2, 3, and Tech), as well as our TOP IDEAS for holding precious metals and mining stocks, your portfolio is PERFORMING BETTER than the world’s TOP HEDGE FUNDS and quant computers; you’re in the top 0.01% of ASSET RETURNS.

And, I have even better news for you: This is just THE KICK-OFF!

All across the globe, there’s a massive STIMULUS PLAN going on, as well as a GENERATIONALLY-STRONG surge of innovation and entrepreneurship.

Hardship and struggle are BIRTHING DISCIPLINE, a sense of carefulness in corporate behavior, and better conditions for the future.

Even MORE IMPRESSIVELY, we feel that gold is still a DOUBLE from here.

Ray Dalio’s hedge fund has been UNDERPERFORMING FOR YEARS, but the two things he did get right are gold and China.

We believe most Americans are thinking of China with a 30-YEAR DELAY. They do not yet realize just how technologically advanced it is, and they certainly don’t appreciate its IMMINENT WEALTH BOOM.

China’s boom is actually one of the biggest reasons for my REVISED TARGET for gold by 2023 of $4,000/ounce, up from $3,300.

The stock market is going MUCH HIGHER, regardless of who’s going to win this election. The chart is clear:

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

The S&P 500 index is headed to 5,000 points within 2-3 years. Stocks are expensive (we know), but the REAL BUBBLE, perhaps the only one, is in GOVERNMENT BONDS.

Why on earth is $17tn parked in negative-yielding assets?

PortfolioWealthGlobal.com truly believes that about 5% to 10% of that money will flow into gold, driving its price up 105%.

When gold hits our FINAL TARGET of $4,000 for this cycle, we forecast a 40:1 or 45:1 gold-to-silver ratio, implying silver’s target is around $90 to $100.

No one has yet understood just how much demand for silver COULD GROW if the U.S. dollar starts to lose purchasing power in a noticeable fashion.

Most Americans have no idea what constitutional money is or how silver protects their purchasing power. They’re hypnotized.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

We believe they’re about to receive a GIANT WAKE-UP CALL!

The Federal Reserve can’t really control much anymore, by way of interest rate hikes. If inflation does increase, it will turn into an everyday mainstream problem.

Just as fast as Americans buy guns when times seem uncertain or gobble-up toilet paper in the Covid-19 quarantine like programmed robots, so will they purchase a few ounces of silver, when inflation is broadcasted on the news.

As you know, the ABOVE-GROUND supply is only 2.5bn ounces, which IS NOTHING in the grand scheme of things.

Are you ready to TAKE WHAT’S YOURS?

If Biden wins this election, the dollar could plummet by 20% in his first term. His programs are giant PRINTING OPERATIONS to Americans. His stance on China is more relaxed and we believe that in the big picture, silver will thrive!

Gold $4,000; silver $100 — ride ‘til you CAN’T NO MORE!

Early voting election Georgia High turnout Intelwars Long lines

Georgia residents face long lines on first day of early voting. Some voters had to wait ‘six hours or more’ to cast their ballot.

Several Georgia precincts saw long lines Monday, as voters reportedly turned out in record numbers to head to the polls on the first day of early voting in the state.

What are the details?

The Associated Press reported that some locations were overwhelmed by the number of voters who turned out make their voices heard in the general election, with many people waiting several hours as poll workers battled technical difficulties and overall lack of space. Some critics declared the situation was evidence of voter suppression.

“Eager voters endured waits of six hours or more in Cobb County, which was once solidly Republican but has voted for Democrats in recent elections, and joined lines that wrapped around polling places in solidly Democratic DeKalb County,” the outlet reported. “They also turned out in big numbers in north Georgia’s Floyd County, where support for President Donald Trump is strong.”

According to The Hill, technical issues with pollbooks (used to check in voters) caused major delays at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, but the situation was resolved after an hour or so.

NBC News published the experience of Cobb County voter Everlean Rutherford, who tweeted out a video of a long line in the morning hours at her polling place, writing, “I LOVE this. Early voting started today in Georgia. This is the voting line in Cobb County. You see this.”

Rutherford sent out a number of updates throughout the day before finally tweeting, “Just finished voting. I started at 10:04 and just finished at 7:43pm.”

Former Missouri Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill tweeted out a separate video from Georgia, alleging, “This is a picture of voter suppression. Why do Americans have to wait in lines this long? This is the line in Suwannee Georgia today to vote.”

McCaskill received pushback from some people over the allegation of voter suppression. Jay Caruso, managing editor of The Washington Examiner, argued in an extensive thread that after living in Georgia for five years, he could attest that “it is one of the easiest states to both register and vote.”

Others responded in agreement with the former Missouri senator, with one person arguing, “It’s voter suppression because not everyone can stand in line for EIGHT FREAKING HOURS in the heat to vote! People have passed out, some have had to leave to go to work or pick up kids. This is a district that went for Hillary [Clinton] so the GOP wants to make it hard for them to vote!”

BRING DOWN THE ROOF: Market Predicts BIDEN!

This article was contributed by James Davis with Future Money Trends. 

This week, we saw markets start to factor in something that many TRUMP SUPPORTERS are refusing to believe, which is that Joe Biden is DEFINITELY LEADING in most polls.

What the Trump supporters cling onto is that in 2016, all of these SO-CALLED GENIUS POLLSTERS were dead-wrong, not accounting for what are referred to as “Shy Trumpsters,” which are supporters who will only admit the fact to themselves and sometimes their close family.

Failure to understand this IMPORTANT DYNAMIC caused the shock around CLINTON’S LOSS in 2016, and they believe history will repeat itself on November 3rd, which is less than a month away.

There is SOME MERIT to this, as the company that predicted Trump’s victory back then is forecasting him to win in a TIGHT RACE!

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Despite this being issued by the only polling firm that CORRECTLY CALLED the 2016 election, the wisdom of the crowds favors Biden right now.

For one, China’s yuan just had an incredible week. The dollar dumped to THREE-WEEK lows, even though real rates actually climbed. What’s behind these BIG MOVES? Well, if Biden wins, tensions with China are supposed to ease, which is another way of saying that HARDBALL NEGOTIATIONS will be canceled and the policy that wiped out the American middle class –  which is to allow the Chinese to compete with the West without respecting the rules of the game – WILL RETURN.

In the case of a Biden win, FAR LESS unpredictability is almost guaranteed. One thing about the past four years that was very noticeable is how aggressive Trump’s governance style is. If he has a MISSION AT HEART, it will get done, even at the cost of short-term mayhem.

His supporters love this about him; his haters think it is borderline insanity to run a country in this manner.

Less unknown things and fewer LAST-MINUTE BOMBSHELLS reduce the need to be as LIQUID, therefore resulting in a weaker dollar.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

So, a Biden victory is actually BETTER FOR METALS than a Trump one.

Trump has caused the dollar to strengthen significantly in his term compared with other fiat currencies. In 2018, the dollar actually had its BEST YEAR since 1969. This made the gold/silver ratio reach an all-time high of 123:1, so if you’re LONG SILVER, Biden’s policies will actually make you richer.

Regardless of who wins, Future Money Trends believes that the stock market will GO UP.

Our watch lists have brought TREMENDOUS WINS in March, June, over the summer, and just recently, in the SEPTEMBER CORRECTION.

With the INITIAL ONE, there are companies that are up over +70% now!

With the SECOND ONE, there are companies that are up over +50% now in less than FIVE MONTHS.

With the THIRD ONE, released over the summer, we believe that Ciena (CIEN), which we’re personally big shareholders of with an entry price of $44.05, will see a massive long-term opportunity. Put differently, we think that in 2030, when you look at this holding compared with the indices, you’ll potentially see a BIG GAP to its advantage.

In late August, anticipating a TERRIBLE SEPTEMBER, we issued a tech-centered watch list, OUR FOURTH ONE. One company is already up 15.3% for us. Ironically, the other companies are up MUCH MORE, +20% and even +30% and +40%, if one didn’t wait for the price to drop to the proposed LIMIT ORDERS.

Being able to invest DESPITE the innumerable reasons NOT TO, which the gloom and doom crowd always finds, is probably what investors in the 1940s and EARLY 1980s had to DEAL WITH as WW2 ended and the 1970s inflationary nightmare ended.

The eternal mandate is to be a contrarian or SUFFER.

election Election 2020 Intelwars Politics The 2020 Election

Was Joe Biden’s new campaign slogan “Build Back Better” actually plagiarized from somewhere else?

By now you have probably heard about Joe Biden’s new campaign slogan.  Even though he often has a very difficult time saying it, “Build Back Better” is plastered all over his official campaign website.  I think that his campaign team wanted something forwarding looking and that sounded optimistic, but it isn’t exactly original.  In fact, the Trump campaign has pointed out that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was using the slogan long before Biden ever did…

If you thought Joe Biden’s clunky, tax-and-spend slogan “Build Back Better” sounds like unoriginal, political consultant-speak, you’re right. In fact, U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is using the same slogan and was doing so before Joe Biden stole it.

You can watch video of both politicians using the “Build Back Better” slogan right here.  Considering the issues that Biden has had with plagiarism in the past, his team probably should have gone with another choice.

Of course the idea of “building back better” did not originate with Boris Johnson either.  Approximately 2,700 years ago, the leaders of Israel decided that they would “build back better” after the Assyrians invaded.  The following is what Isaiah 9:10 says in the Modern English Version…

“The bricks are fallen down,
but we will build with hewn stones;
the sycamores are cut down,
but we will replace them with cedars.”

As Jonathan Cahn has pointed out, some of our top politicians quoted that passage in the aftermath of 9/11 because they thought that it was an inspirational way of saying that America would rebuild too.

But when the leaders of Israel expressed their desire to “build back better”, it was actually an act of defiance.  Instead of humbling themselves and turning from their evil ways, they decided that they could make their society great again without God’s help.

When my wife heard Biden’s new slogan, she immediately recognized the parallel.  In the United States today, both political parties are boldly proclaiming that they will restore America to greatness, but meanwhile just about every form of wickedness that you can possibly imagine is exploding all around us.

Election Day is now less than a month away, and both sides continue to insist that they will be able to turn our nation around if they win.

But an increasing number of Americans are becoming convinced that no turnaround is coming any time soon, and they are preparing for the worst.  In fact, some people are going to wild extremes in order to insulate themselves from what they believe is going to happen.  On Friday, I came across an article that discussed the fact that brokers that sell private islands are “overwhelmed” with demand right now…

Calls and emails come in at all times of day and night. They no longer concern fun or prestige. Instead they focus on fresh water and solar panels. These were not the inquiries they had grown used to.

The island brokers are overwhelmed.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have your own private island?

In the old days, very wealthy people would buy them as vacation destinations, but now they are mainly being viewed as potential survival properties

“Before, an island was a toy,” said Marcus Gondolo-Gordon, the chief executive of Incognito Property based in England. Now clients describe dreams of a “a bloody long boat ride” to ensure that no one will cruise up and infringe on their isolation, he said. They also want access to fresh water, solar panels and a house that is ready to sleep in, tomorrow.

Here in 2020, there are so many things that people are freaking out about.  Some are concerned about another wave of COVID-19, others fear that our ongoing economic collapse may get a lot worse, and still others are deeply concerned about the tremendous civil unrest that they see all around them.

The tragic death of George Floyd sparked a tsunami of chaos that still has not abated.  In New York City, there was widespread looting during the riots that erupted in the immediate aftermath of Floyd’s death, but what most Americans don’t realize is that the looting has not stopped since that time.  The following comes from the New York Post

The disturbing pattern began in late May during the riots that rocked the city in the wake of the George Floyd police custody death. High-end Celine was looted of $1.5 million in merchandise then, and the blatant thievery continues “every week” in ritzy stores such as Prada, Moncler, Dior and Balenciaga, one plugged-in local said.

Many of the retailers that are being hit by the shoplifters are very hesitant to crack down too hard, because if they do they may end up with an even greater problem

“If they [store personnel] stop them and say anything in the store before they’ve left the building then it often gets turned into a racial accusation,” the source said.

“The brands … tell their employees to walk away,” the insider added. “They don’t want to be the next Instagram video claiming they are a racist brand.”

It is so sad to watch our nation being torn apart like this, and it isn’t going to end no matter what happens in November.

If we truly want to rebuild America, we can’t do it in our own strength.  Any plan that excludes God is not going to work, but of course that is not a very popular message in our day and time.

In ancient Israel, the leaders truly thought that they could “build back better” too, and for a little while they were successful.

But ultimately it was all for naught because they were eventually completely conquered by their enemies.

In the United States today, it seems like our problems are multiplying all around us, and 2020 has been a year that none of us will ever forget.

If we defiantly insist on trying to turn our ship around by ourselves, it will be just a matter of time before it sinks.

Unfortunately, we continue to race toward the point of no return, and at this point time is definitely not on our side.

Ambition Bear Market challenges control dictator Donald Trump Economy election experts Forecasting Government Headline News Intelwars LIES March North Korea presidential elections propaganda pursue recovery

MAN THE SHIPS: TRUMP WAGES PSYCHOLOGICAL WAR!

This article was contributed by Tom Beck with Portfolio Wealth Global. 

America elected an NYC-based real estate shark to the office of President. WHAT DID YOU think would happen? This is a person who had to fight for everything and go into boxing matches with BARE KNUCKLES in order to get deals done.

People like Donald Trump aren’t apologetic, and one either DIGS THIS WHOLEHEARTEDLY or absolutely can’t stand the SIGHT OF HIM.

His doctrine won’t change, not now, not one month before elections. He is going to stick with what BROUGHT HIM HERE, to the highest office a man can hold for the past 80 years – that of Commander-in-Chief – and he’s going to take it TO TWITTER with all he’s got.

On the way, he’s going to CHALLENGE YOU with his ferociousness, and his confidence boosts.

If there’s an ULTIMATE LESSON to learn from the way he conducts himself, it is that ambition is contagious.

Trump’s supporters treat him more like a celebrity than anything else.

When I say that he is waging warfare on your mind, I don’t mean it in a vicious or evil way, but as a CASE STUDY.

Take a step back and learn from this; it’s a great experiment in self-promotion, governance, and the American atmosphere of 2020.

If he wins, even with half the country and the media HATING ON HIM, take that as a huge lesson in pursuing things in life, NO MATTER how many people tell you it’s wrong, impossible, stupid, or otherwise.

You’ll never rise to greatness, fearing criticism. Every major decision I’ve ever made was seen as outrageous by someone CLOSE TO ME.

Trump has built a wall with Mexico, waged a tariffs war with China, met with North Korea’s dictator, shut down the government and ordered the elimination of Iranian terrorists and of ISIS’ founder, all in one term.

Covid-19 has made him the target of GLOBAL SCRUTINY, so the polls have him trailing, which I tend to believe is true this time, but don’t think this is over by any STRETCH of the IMAGINATION.

Americans are about to enter a great psychological experiment and we shall see if the Trump campaign can’t pull off another last-minute reversal.

Know this: open-mindedness is the TRUE KEY to winning in 2020. I get sent videos of JEFF GUNDLACH, the bond king, who has become quite popular, three times a week.

He keeps warning of a SEVERE RECESSION and testing the MARCH LOWS; I keep looking at our Watch Lists (1, 2, 3, and 4) and the ENORMOUS GAINS we’ve made and keep making. I pity people who have “stayed liquid,” not understanding that the reset has ALREADY OCCURRED.

March was the GREATEST BEAR MARKET ever; there isn’t going to be a second one; we’re in recovery mode and this pandemic is GETTING DEFEATED, by way of herd immunity, social distancing, and for those who will dare to take it, a vaccine.

Focus on the future; keep a FLEXIBILITY ABOUT YOU, since following just one idea, just one script, IS WRONG.

I rest my case.

Amy coney barrett Court packing election Intelwars Joe Biden over

Biden says he’ll disclose his opinion on court-packing ‘when the election is over’

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was asked again Thursday to explain whether he is in favor of packing the U.S. Supreme Court with additional justices if he wins the White House and President Donald Trump’s latest nominee is confirmed.

What are the details?

Biden and running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) spoke with the press while at the Phoenix airport on their way to campaign events in Arizona. After criticizing Vice President Mike Pence for not answering a particular question during the vice presidential debate the night before, a reporter asked Biden to state is position on court packing as some far-left congressional Democrats have threatened.

The Democrat refused — as he has several times now — to answer the question, telling reporters, “You’ll know my opinion on court-packing when the election is over.”

“Now look,” he continued. “It’s a great question and I don’t blame you for asking it. But you know the moment I answer that question, the headline in every one of your papers will be about that, other than — other than — focusing on what’s happening now.”

Both Biden and Harris have repeatedly refused to give their ticket’s position on court-packing. During the vice presidential debate, Pence pressed Harris twice directly to give an answer to the American people and she never did.

Members of the press have expressed perplexity over the pair’s repeated dodges on the issue.

Following Biden’s latest refusal to answer on court-packing, NBC News’ Mike Memoli tweeted, “The most bizarre part of this ongoing saga is the explicit articulation of ‘I won’t say because if I do it’s a story.'”

Last week, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Harris for a “straight answer” on packing the Supreme Court. When she refused that time, she echoed Biden when she replied, “Joe has been really clear: Let’s focus on what is happening right now. Deal with later later. Focus on what is happening right now, which the American people are voting and they should be the ones to decide who will have the next lifetime appointment to the United States Supreme Court.”

She added, “Let’s not get distracted.”

After Harris’ refusal to answer the same question during the debate, Tapper said during a CNN panel that the fact that neither Biden nor Harris will give an answer on court-packing is “significant, and Biden and Harris should answer it.”

Barack Obama Corporate elites Department of Homeland Security Donald Trump election Florida foreign hackers George Carlin Headline News Intelwars liars in suits Mail-in voting Masters Police State Political Parties political savior ruling class Scam selection slaves Theft Voting WHITE HOUSE

The Election Has Already Been Hijacked and the Winner Decided: ‘We the People’ Lose

This article was originally published by John W. Whitehead at The Rutherford Institute.

“Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves.” ? Herbert Marcuse

Republicans and Democrats alike fear that the other party will attempt to hijack this election.

President Trump is convinced that mail-in ballots are a scam except in Florida, where it’s safe to vote by mail because of its “great Republican governor.”

The FBI is worried about foreign hackers continuing to target and exploit vulnerabilities in the nation’s electoral system, sowing distrust about the parties, the process, and the outcome.

I, on the other hand, am not overly worried: after all, the voting booths have already been hijacked by a political elite comprised of Republicans and Democrats who are determined to retain power at all costs.

The outcome is a foregone conclusion: the Deep State will win and “we the people” will lose.

The damage has already been done.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which has been tasked with helping to “secure” the elections and protect the nation against cyberattacks, is not exactly an agency known for its adherence to freedom principles.

After all, this is the agency largely responsible for turning the American republic into a police state. Since its creation, the DHS has ushered in the domestic use of surveillance drones, expanded the reach of fusion centers, stockpiled an alarming amount of ammunition (including hollow-point bullets), urged Americans to become snitches through a “see something, say something” campaign, overseen the fumbling antics of TSA agents everywhere, militarized the nation’s police, spied on activists and veterans, distributed license plate readers and cell phone trackers to law enforcement agencies, contracted to build detention camps, carried out military drills and lockdowns in American cities, conducted virtual strip searches of airline passengers, established Constitution-free border zones, funded city-wide surveillance cameras, and undermined the Fourth Amendment at every turn.

So, no, I’m not losing a night’s sleep over the thought that this election might by any more rigged than it already is.

And I’m not holding my breath in the hopes that the winner of this year’s popularity contest will save us from government surveillance, weaponized drones, militarized police, endless wars, SWAT team raids, asset forfeiture schemes, overcriminalization, profit-driven private prisons, graft, and corruption, or any of the other evils that masquerade as official government business these days.

You see, after years of trying to wake Americans up to the reality that there is no political savior who will save us from the police state, I’ve come to realize that Americans want to engage in the reassurance ritual of voting.

They want to believe the fantasy that politics matter.

They want to be persuaded that there’s a difference between the Republicans and Democrats (there’s not).

Some will swear that Donald Trump has been an improvement on Barack Obama (he is not).

Others are convinced that Joe Biden’s values are different from Donald Trump’s (with both of them, money talks).

Most of all, voters want to buy into the fantasy that when they elect a president, they’re getting someone who truly represents the citizenry rather than the Deep State (in fact, in the oligarchy that is the American police state, an elite group of wealthy donors is calling the shots in cooperation with a political elite).

The sad truth is that it doesn’t matter who wins the White House because they all work for the same boss: Corporate America. Understanding this, many corporations hedge their bets on who will win the White House by splitting their donations between Democratic and Republican candidates.

Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion. It is a political illusion aimed at persuading the citizenry that we are free, that our vote counts, and that we actually have some control over the government when in fact, we are prisoners of a Corporate Elite.

In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities, more often than not, are exactly the same so that we don’t join forces and do what the Declaration of Independence suggests, which is to throw the whole lot out and start over.

It’s no secret that both parties support endless war, engage in out-of-control spending, ignore the citizenry’s basic rights, have no respect for the rule of law, are bought and paid for by Big Business, care most about their own power, and have a long record of expanding government and shrinking liberty. Most of all, both parties enjoy an intimate, incestuous history with each other and with the moneyed elite that rule this country.

Despite the jabs the candidates volley at each other for the benefit of the cameras, they’re a relatively chummy bunch away from the spotlight. Moreover, despite Congress’ so-called political gridlock, our elected officials seem to have no trouble finding common ground when it’s time to collectively kowtow to the megacorporations, lobbyists, defense contractors, and other special interest groups to whom they have pledged their true allegiance.

So don’t be fooled by the smear campaigns and name-calling or drawn into their divide-and-conquer politics of hate. They’re just useful tactics that have been proven to engage voters and increase voter turnout while keeping the citizenry at each other’s throats.

It’s all a grand illusion.

It used to be that the cogs, wheels, and gear shifts in the government machinery worked to keep the republic running smoothly. However, without our fully realizing it, the mechanism has changed. Its purpose is no longer to keep our republic running smoothly. To the contrary, this particular contraption’s purpose is to keep the Deep State in power. Its various parts are already a corrupt part of the whole.

Just consider how insidious, incestuous, and beholden to the corporate elite the various “parts” of the mechanism have become.

Congress. Perhaps the most notorious offenders and most obvious culprits in the creation of the corporate-state, Congress has proven itself to be both inept and avaricious, oblivious champions of an authoritarian system that is systematically dismantling their constituents’ fundamental rights. Long before they’re elected, Congressmen are trained to dance to the tune of their wealthy benefactors, so much so that they spend two-thirds of their time in office raising money. As Reuters reports, “For many lawmakers, the daily routine in Washington involves fundraising as much as legislating. The culture of nonstop political campaigning shapes the rhythms of daily life in Congress, as well as the landscape around the Capitol. It also means that lawmakers often spend more time listening to the concerns of the wealthy than anyone else.”

The President. What Americans want in a president and what they need are two very different things. The making of a popular president is an exercise in branding, marketing, and creating alternate realities for the consumer—a.k.a., the citizenry—that allows them to buy into a fantasy about life in America that is utterly divorced from our increasingly grim reality. Take President Trump, for instance, who got elected by promising to drain the swamp in Washington DC. Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military-industrial complex, and the rest of the Deep State (also referred to as “The 7th Floor Group”) to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic. The lesson: to be a successful president, it doesn’t matter whether you keep your campaign promises, sell the American people to the highest bidder, or march in lockstep with the Corporate State as long as you keep telling people what they most want to hear.

The Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court—once the last refuge of justice, the one governmental body really capable of rolling back the slowly emerging tyranny enveloping America—has instead become the champion of the American police state, absolving government and corporate officials of their crimes while relentlessly punishing the average American for exercising his or her rights. Like the rest of the government, the Court has routinely prioritized profit, security, and convenience over the basic rights of the citizenry. Indeed, law professor Erwin Chemerinsky makes a compelling case that the Supreme Court, whose “justices have overwhelmingly come from positions of privilege,” almost unerringly throughout its history sides with the wealthy, the privileged, and the powerful.

The Media. Of course, this triumvirate of total control would be completely ineffective without a propaganda machine provided by the world’s largest corporations. Besides shoveling drivel down our throats at every possible moment, the so-called news agencies which are supposed to act as bulwarks against government propaganda have instead become the mouthpieces of the state. The pundits which pollute our airwaves are at best court jesters and at worst propagandists for the false reality created by the American government. When you have internet and media giants such as Google, NBC Universal, News Corporation, Turner Broadcasting, Thomson Reuters, Comcast, Time Warner, Viacom, Public Radio International, and The Washington Post Company donating to political candidates, you no longer have an independent media—what we used to refer to as the “fourth estate”—that can be trusted to hold the government accountable.

The American People. “We the people” now belong to a permanent underclass in America. It doesn’t matter what you call us—chattel, slaves, worker bees, it’s all the same—what matters is that we are expected to march in lockstep with and submit to the will of the state in all matters, public and private. Unfortunately, through our complicity in matters large and small, we have allowed an out-of-control corporate-state apparatus to take over every element of American society.

We’re playing against a stacked deck.

The game is rigged, and “we the people” keep getting dealt the same losing hand. The people dealing the cards—the politicians, the corporations, the judges, the prosecutors, the police, the bureaucrats, the military, the media, etc.—have only one prevailing concern, and that is to maintain their power and control over the citizenry while milking us of our money and possessions.

It really doesn’t matter what you call them—Republicans, Democrats, the 1%, the elite, the controllers, the masterminds, the shadow government, the police state, the surveillance state, the military-industrial complex—so long as you understand that while they are dealing the cards, the deck will always be stacked in their favor.

As I make clear in my book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People, our failure to remain informed about what is taking place in our government, to know and exercise our rights, to vocally protest, to demand accountability on the part of our government representatives, and at a minimum to care about the plight of our fellow Americans has been our downfall.

Now we find ourselves once again caught up in the spectacle of another presidential election, and once again the majority of Americans are acting as if this election will make a difference and bring about change. As if the new boss will be different from the old boss.

When in doubt, just remember what the astute commentator George Carlin had to say about the matter:

The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork…. It’s a big club and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. …The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice…. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on…. It’s called the American Dream, ’cause you have to be asleep to believe it.

Celebrities Chris pratt Chris pratt joke election Intelwars Vote

Chris Pratt takes heat over joke about celebrities and voting: ‘This is super insensitive’

Actor Chris Pratt took some heat on social media recently after hilariously mocking celebrities for constantly lecturing Americans about voting ahead of the upcoming November election.

What did he say?

In an Instagram post Friday, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star jokingly encouraged fans to vote — not for politicians in the upcoming election — but for his new movie “Onward” ahead of the 2020 People’s Choice Awards.

“With all that’s going on in the world it is more important than ever that you vote,” Pratt wrote. “Just ask any celebrity. They will tell you. Every day. Several times a day. To vote. But me? I will tell you EXACTLY who to vote for. #onward.”

“The heroes before us did not spill their blood only to have their sacrifices wasted by your apathy. The upcoming 2020 People’s Choice Awards is the most consequential vote in the history of mankind times a million infinity,” he continued. “Vote for #Onward for family movie of the year. Or else. You WILL die. No hyperbole. Click the link in my bio. Let your voice be heard.”

Some people couldn’t take a joke

The actor was obviously alluding to the constant barrage of get-out-the-vote social media posts and TV ads in which celebrities use their fame and notoriety to make sure people vote.

It’s typical in such posts or ads for the celebrity to press on the notion that the current election is, of course, the most important election in history of the universe.

But apparently, some followers weren’t so keen on the joke.

“This is super insensitive. Read the room. Oh wait you did and decided to mock people. Coooooooollllllll,” one user wrote.

“I get this is supposed to be a cute little joke but it comes off as really insensitive,” another added. “The upcoming election is really important and everyone should vote and for you to try and take that and turn it into an ad for your movie is low.”

Still others commented, “I wish I found this funny” and “delete this.”

Another wrote: “YIKES. Imagine the amount of privilege one person can have to write this tone deaf post.”

Not everybody took offense

Pratt was not without his supporters, though, as many commenters came quickly to his defense.

“Geez. Everyone really has lost their sense of humor. This is just a lighthearted post and there’s nothing wrong with that. No one’s going to take the election less seriously because Chris Pratt posted about the People’s Choice Awards,” argued one person.

“He is just trying to make a light hearted joke because times are tough right now,” another fan wrote.

Someone else said, “Finally. A celebrity not shoving their politics down your throat.”

One fan even had to state the obvious so that people would take less offense.

“He’s not mocking the voting process, he’s mocking celebrities. Y’all are too sensitive,” they said.

circus COVID-19 Debate don't vote Donald Trump election experts Forecasting Headline News Intelwars Joed Biden meaningless Political pandering propaganda show

JOE DIDN’T TANK: COULD BIDEN PULL AN UPSET?

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of The Wealth Research Group. 

This was one FOR THE AGES; the first COVID-era debate is behind us. Today, I want to REVEAL MY CONCLUSIONS from it, since it was widely-viewed and closely-followed.

For one, Biden’s performance WAS WHATEVER…

His replies, to be honest, were MOSTLY MEANINGLESS clichés, which I expected going into it.

His consultants must have coached him a million times not to GET INTO SPECIFICS – that’s where his cognitive weaknesses are on FULL DISPLAY and he did follow their advice. He mostly kept his answers vague and WITHOUT CONVICTION.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

With a recovery FULLY UNDERWAY (as can be seen above), the Democrats know that they must pull a rabbit out of the hat; THE ECONOMY is certainly synonymous with Donald Trump, so each passing day of it returning TO STRIDE is hurting their (the Democrats) chances to win.

Anyone watching the debate saw the STARK DIFFERENCE in personal rhetorical capabilities; obviously, a vote for Biden is simply a DE-FACTO VOTE against Trump at all costs, since he’s fat more up-to-speed on what’s happening — he’s already in office and has a PULSE OF THINGS.

Even most Democrats know that if the position up for grabs was CEO of a company, Trump would be the better man, so one question is how the REMAINING FEW voters, who are currently on the fence, choose on Election Day, based on social issues, immigration, and healthcare. The other question is HOW MANY people, who normally don’t vote, get inspired to do so and FOR WHOM.

These are BIG QUESTIONS.

I’m not an American, nor do I base my decisions in life on who occupies the White House, but I’m sharing this summary of the debate since it matters to you.

While many things in your life won’t be GREATLY IMPACTED by either president, some areas will CHANGE if Biden takes over.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

Tensions with China and Europe will probably ease if Biden wins, which will make the DOLLAR LESS IMPORTANT. Gold has done well under Trump, but silver hasn’t, because of the strong dollar; that will change if Sleepy Joe is in office.

In our view, the moderator of the debate (Mr. Wallace), knowing the ATTENTION SPAN of the average voter is 15 minutes, wanted to SERVE UP Biden with his strong topics first, like Trump’s entanglement with the IRS or Obamacare, but Biden didn’t SINK TRUMP’S SHIP.

If there’s a SECOND DEBATE, Trump will exploit Biden’s weaknesses FAR BETTER.

The average Trump voter will never go the other way, but in our opinion, many Democrats could look at Trump and be surprised by his preparedness level to answer questions.

All in all, Trump is again coming FROM BEHIND, at this point.

Courtesy: Zerohedge.com

As you know, in the end, America is a WEALTH MACHINE that favors the rich, under either Republican or Democrat leadership, so the fact remains that the NET WORTH GAPS will continue to widen, unless you do SOMETHING ABOUT IT, by becoming rich and showing others it’s possible; an ounce of action is worth a ton of theory.

Financial education is STEP #1 and the more you immerse yourself in how to fix your personal problems, the less you’ll depend on government.

Financial intelligence is the BEST CURE for you!

Keep growing.

2020 Election Commentary CORRUPTION election Intelwars Politics

If Democrats Take The White House And Congress In November, It Will All Be Over For The Republican Party

This is not a normal election, because if Democrats are able to win the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives in November, they will end the two party system as we know it today.  Yes, there will still be two major political parties, but one will essentially be in permanent control.  In recent weeks, there has been so much chatter on the left about ending the filibuster in the Senate permanently, about granting statehood to Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, and about “packing” the Supreme Court.  Collectively, these three moves would basically make it exceedingly difficult for Republicans to ever become the majority party again.  I know that this is an extreme statement to make, but I think that you will agree with me by the time this article is over.

Let’s talk about the filibuster in the Senate and statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico first.

When Joy Reid of MSNBC asked Chuck Schumer about these potential moves if Democrats win the Senate, Schumer said that “everything is on the table”

Host Joy Reid then asked, “Would that include adding, if the Senate becomes a Democratic majority, adding D.C. and Puerto Rico as states and ending the filibuster?”

Schumer responded, “I would — believe me, on D.C. and Puerto Rico, particularly if Puerto Rico votes for it, D.C. already has voted for it and wants it. I’d love to make them states. And as for the filibuster, I’m not busting my chops to become majority leader to do very little or nothing. We are going to get a whole lot done. And as I’ve said, everything, everything is on the table.”

Ending the filibuster would allow Democrats to push through whatever they want without the approval of the Republicans.  I have been warning for years that Democrats would do this once they regained control of the Senate, and so I always thought that Republicans should pull the trigger first.

If Republicans had ended the filibuster shortly after Trump’s inauguration, they could have gotten a tremendous amount done during Trump’s first two years, but instead Democrats in the Senate were able to block almost everything that they wanted to do.

It was inevitable that the filibuster was going to be ended permanently at some point, and doing so under a Biden administration would permit Democrats to do some very “creative” things.

For example, Democrats are already talking about pushing through statehood for Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico if they get control of the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives.  With no filibuster in the Senate, there will be nothing to stop them.

If Washington D.C. becomes a state, they will get two senators, one representative in the House and three electoral votes.

If Puerto Rico becomes a state, they will get two senators, five representatives in the House and seven electoral votes.

Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico are both very liberal, and so all of those senators, representatives and electoral votes would likely be controlled by Democrats for the foreseeable future.

Six new representatives would not make it impossible for Republicans to win the House in the future, but it would definitely make it more difficult.

However, four new Democratic senators would dramatically shift the balance of power in the U.S. Senate, because right now there are only 100 seats.  A permanent four seat advantage would give the Democrats the upper hand for generations to come, but they might not stop there.

Many on the left have been talking about dividing California into five different states, and that would give Californians 10 seats in the Senate instead of the two that they have now.

We have entered a time when the unthinkable may become reality, and Republicans should enjoy their majority in the Senate while they still can, because they might not get it back for a long, long time to come.

And let’s not forget the new electoral votes that D.C. and Puerto Rico would get.  Considering how closely our country has been divided in recent years, giving Democratic candidates a permanent 10 vote advantage in the Electoral College would be huge.

So as you can see, it would be difficult to imagine the Republicans regaining control of the White House and Congress at the same time if D.C. and Puerto Rico really do become states.

Now let’s talk about “packing” the Supreme Court.

Theoretically, there is nothing in the Constitution that limits the Supreme Court to just nine justices.  So if the Republicans are able to confirm Amy Coney Barrett before Trump’s term ends, some Democrats are threatening that they might just add some extra justices to the Court if Biden wins in November.

Of course this would go against hundreds of years of tradition and would completely turn the Supreme Court into a political institution.

And most Americans believe that packing the Court would be a very bad idea.  In fact, one recent survey found that an overwhelming number of us want to keep the Court at nine members

The “Keep Nine” amendment simply states that the Supreme Court of the United States “shall be composed of nine Justices.”

A survey, conducted by McLaughlin and Associates from Sept 23 – 27 among 1,000 registered, likely voters, found that 62 percent favor the amendment, as opposed to the 18 percent who do not.

Because there has been so much buzz about this, Joe Biden was asked specifically about it at the first presidential debate, and he refused to answer the question

Asked directly at the first presidential debate if he supported “packing the court” in response to President Donald Trump possibly confirming a third Supreme Court justice before the election, Biden openly acknowledged he was dodging the question, saying “Whatever position I take on that, that’ll become the issue.”

Trump seized on the comment, asking Biden repeatedly if he was “going to pack the court,” leading Biden to say, “I’m not going to answer the question.”

Following the debate, he was asked about this again, and he still refused to answer.

Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, has also refused to take a stand on this issue

“We are 35 days away from an election … probably the most important election of our lifetime and our children’s lifetime, and there is nothing about these next 35 days that Joe or I will take for granted,” Harris told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “The focus right now is on reminding people that we have this election that is very much in play … we are in the midst of an election.”

The reason why they don’t want to say anything is because they want to keep their options open.

And we all know that if the Supreme Court started handing down decisions that they do not like that they would not hesitate to pull the trigger.

Of course one could argue that the Republicans could do their own “packing of the Court” once they regain control, but as I detailed above, it will be exceedingly difficult for that to ever happen if D.C. and Puerto Rico become states.

And if California gets divided into five states, you can pretty much forget about Republicans ever controlling the Senate again.

So much is at stake, and right now Republican candidates are behind in the polls in critical races all over the nation.

The future does not look bright for the Republican Party, because Democrats are going to go for the throat if they are able to take power in November, and at the moment the poll numbers appear to be very much in their favor.

Will The 2020 Election Be The Beginning Of The End For Our System Of Government?

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The End of the American Dream. 

Most Americans assume that our system of government could never fail, but the truth is that it is failing right in front of our eyes.  In order for our system of government to work, people need to be able to believe that their votes will count and that the outcomes of our elections will be fair.

For over 200 years, most Americans did have faith in the system, but now things are rapidly changing.  Here in 2020, we appear to be heading for a hotly contested result in the presidential election, and many on the losing side are inevitably going to believe that the election was stolen from them.  And day after day we just continue to see more examples that indicate the security of our elections is being compromised on a widespread basis.  Not too long ago, I wrote about the military ballots for Trump that had been discarded in a dumpster in Pennsylvania and the ballots that were discovered in a ditch in Wisconsin.  And now today I came across a report about how memory sticks that are “used to program Philadelphia’s voting machines” were stolen from a warehouse…

A laptop and several memory sticks used to program Philadelphia’s voting machines were stolen from a city warehouse in East Falls, officials confirmed Wednesday, setting off a scramble to investigate and to ensure the machines had not been compromised.

Though it remains unclear when the equipment was stolen, sources briefed on the investigation said the items vanished this week. The laptop belonged to an on-site employee for the company that supplies the machines. It and the USB drives were the only items believed to have been taken.

We will want to watch the results coming out of Philadelphia very carefully because the winner of Pennsylvania is probably going to win the presidency.

In 2012, 100 percent of the vote went to Barack Obama in precinct after precinct in Philly, and it will be very interesting to see if a similar pattern emerges during this election.

Elsewhere, James O’Keefe has just exposed an absolutely shocking “cash-for-ballots harvesting scheme” in Minnesota.  Apparently, people were being paid lots of money to collect absentee ballots from elderly individuals and fill them out for preferred Democratic candidates.  The following comes from a Newsweek report

“Just today we got 300 for Jamal Osman,” Mohamed says in the video. “I have 300 ballots in my car right now.”

“Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentee ballots. Look, all these are for Jamal Osman.”

Mohamed can be seen showing white envelopes on his car’s dashboard in a video from July 1. Later in the Project Veritas video Mohamed says, “Money is the king in this world… and a campaign is driven by money.”

How can an election be legitimate when there is this sort of vote-buying going on?

And now with tens of millions of ballots going through the mail in 2020, it is going to be easier to “harvest” ballots than ever before

I just have such a bad feeling about what is going to happen in November.

For weeks, the mainstream media has been trying to convince us that President Trump will probably have a lead on election night but that Joe Biden will win once all of the mail-in ballots are finally counted.

Of course, it could take a really long time for all of those ballots to be counted, and meanwhile, all sorts of monkey business could be happening in the background that we don’t know anything about.

In the end, one side is going to end up bitterly disappointed and will feel like the election has been stolen.  If Trump wins many Biden supporters will believe it was because all of the votes were not fairly counted and if Biden wins many Trump supporters will believe that there was widespread fraud involving mail-in ballots.

We could very easily end up with a scenario where both candidates are declaring victory, and that could set up a very ugly constitutional crisis.  In one of his recent articles, James Howard Kunstler detailed one way that this could all play out

  • The complicit newspapers and cable news channels publish polls showing Joe Biden leading in several swing states, even if it’s not true.
  • Facebook and Twitter amplify expectations of a Biden victory.
  • This sets the stage for a furor when it turns out that he loses on election night.
  • On cue, Antifa commences to riot all around the country. Meanwhile, a mighty harvest of mail-in votes pours into election districts utterly unequipped to validate them.
  • Lawfare cadres agitate in the contested states’ legislatures to send rogue elector slates to the electoral college. The dispute ends up in congress, which awaits a seating of newly-elected representatives on January 4, hopefully for Lawfare, mostly Democrats. Whoops…!
  • Turns out, the Dems lost their majority there too. Fighting in the streets ramps up and overwhelms hamstrung police forces in Democratic-run cities.
  • January 20 — Inauguration Day — rolls around, and the Dems ask the military to drag Trump out of the White House “with great dispatch!” as Mr. Biden himself put it so nicely back in the summer.

I do believe that Trump will have a lead on election night.

In fact, it could be a very big lead.

Trump has been trashing voting by mail for months, and this is going to encourage most of his supporters to vote in person.  In fact, during the first presidential debate, Trump once again talked about potential problems with mail-in votes

In the final segment of the contentious debate between Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, Trump launched into an extended argument against mail voting, claiming without evidence that it is ripe for fraud and suggesting mail ballots may be “manipulated.”

“This is going to be a fraud like you’ve never seen,” the president said of the massive shift to mail voting prompted by the coronavirus pandemic.

And the Republican National Committee has also been making disparaging statements about voting by mail…

‘We always expected to be behind at this point as Democrats have made it their mission to push for an all-mail election that brings fraud and chaos into the system,’ said Republican National Committee spokesman Mike Reed. ‘You’ll see Democrats predominantly vote by mail, and our voters will come out in droves to vote in person, especially on Election Day.’

Those that follow my work on a regular basis already know how I feel about voting by mail.  I believe that Americans should be required to vote in person whenever possible because voting by mail just opens up so many opportunities for things to go wrong.

And many on the left are starting to realize this too.  For example, the following comes from a recent article by Derek Thompson

Mail votes require several steps, and different steps in different locations, including postmarking the ballots, signing in various places, and using the proper number of envelopes. For that reason, it can confuse first-time voters, and even experienced voters used to queuing at local high schools. Two studies of the 2018 midterm elections in Florida and Georgia found that young and minority voters are especially likely to have their mail ballots rejected.

For most of 2020, Democrats have been relentlessly promoting voting by mail, but now they are beginning to understand that could result in hundreds of thousands of their votes being thrown out.  In fact, it is being reported that more than half a million votes were “disqualified” during the 2020 primaries…

In the 2020 primaries, more than 550,000 mail and absentee ballots were disqualified, a much higher number than four years ago. The problem is especially severe in some swing states. More than 23,000 mailed ballots were rejected in the presidential primaries in Wisconsin—more than Donald Trump’s margin of victory in that state in 2016. Deep-blue districts have had the same problem: New York City alone threw out more than 84,000 ballots this primary season.

In the end, Democrats could be sabotaging their own efforts by pushing mail-in voting so much.  If Democrats vote by mail in much higher numbers than Republicans, they will also likely have their votes disqualified in much higher numbers too.

Right now, Democrats are requesting mail ballots at a much higher rate than Republicans are in quite a few key swing states…

Of the more than 9 million voters who requested mail ballots as of Monday in five critical states where the data is available – Florida, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Maine and Iowa – 52 percent were Democrats, 28 percent were Republicans, and 20 percent were unaffiliated.

Additional internal Democratic and Republican Party data obtained by The Washington Post shows a similar trend in Ohio, Minnesota, New Hampshire and Wisconsin, the paper reported.

Many Republican operatives are deeply concerned about these numbers, but perhaps they shouldn’t be.

If Republicans show up in person at the polls in tremendous numbers, that could give Trump an enormous lead on election night.

Of course, Joe Biden will definitely not concede no matter how large the lead looks, and that will set the stage for weeks of legal wrangling over the counting of votes in multiple states.

Ultimately, we will probably have to wait a long time to see if the Democrats can come up with enough “mail-in ballots” to overcome Trump’s lead.

But this process is not going to be good for our nation no matter who ends up winning.

In fact, it is likely that millions of Americans will be so turned off by what happens that they will lose faith in the system permanently.

And once faith in our system is gone, it will be nearly impossible to get back.

Moderna Says COVID-19 Vaccine Will NOT Be Ready Before The Election

Here’s a bit of good news: Moderna says its coronavirus vaccine being developed under Operation Warp Speed will not be available by the election. Moderna’s vaccine won’t be available until 2021.

Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel told the Financial Times in an interview that Moderna, a Bi Pharma front-runner in the COVID-19 vaccine race, will not seek emergency-use authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration until November 25 at the earliest and does not expect to have secured approval for distribution of the vaccine to the general public until spring 2021. “I think a late [first quarter], early [second quarter] approval is a reasonable timeline, based on what we know from our vaccine,” Bancel

FDA Commissioner Is Willing To Skip Phase 3 Trials On COVID-19 Vaccine

Despite Trump’s assertions that a vaccine could be ready in weeks, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield told Congress earlier this month that widespread vaccinations are not expected until well into next year. And once vaccination efforts start, they will not stop until all are vaccinated or forced out of work, and unable to purchase or sell anything without the vaccine.

In August, Moderna said the United States government had agreed to buy 100 million doses of its vaccine candidate, with an option to buy 400 million more doses, for $2.48 billion in total.

The end game is an agenda in which all people are tracked, traced, and surveilled under the complete control of a totalitarian elite. This vaccine is a piece of that agenda.

More Proof Trump Is Working On Bill Gates’ Vaccine Under “Operation Warp Speed”

Whether the vaccine is ready or not by the election, is of little consequence, the delay simply buys the people more time to figure out what’s going on and prepare for it. So please prepare.  Do what you can with the information you have to make sure you are braced for this.

This vaccine and its rollout will be nothing like we’ve seen before.

LIVE NOW: Civil War: The Left’s Election-Night War Game

The Left has big plans for this election, and we could be just four weeks away from the fundamental transformation of America. They’ve been building a network of street activists since 2008, and the plan is to unleash them on November 3.

Tonight, in part three of this series, Glenn Beck reveals everything: how the Arab Spring inspired Occupy Wall Street, how Occupy Wall Street inspired a new era in left-wing activism, and how this newly evolved street movement has been behind nearly every major leftist movement over the past several years. But in their own words, that was just the warm-up. The real movement begins in about one month.

Glenn takes you line by line, from their own documents, to show you the four scenarios Democrats have planned and also equips you with the action plan to prepare for election night and the weeks to follow.

Federal Authorities Have Already Documented Two Cases In Which Votes Have Been “Discarded” In Key Swing States

The integrity of our elections is of paramount importance, because if our ability to choose our own leaders is compromised that undermines everything that our system of government is based upon.  So every American should be hyper-sensitive to any allegation that our votes are being tampered with, because any attack on the voting process is an attack on all of us.  This is one issue that should be able to unite Republicans and Democrats, and hopefully people across the political spectrum will report anything suspicious that they notice over the coming weeks.  And as I become aware of troubling incidents, I will share them with my readers, because the integrity of our elections is definitely one of my hot button issues.

When I heard that some military ballots in Pennsylvania had been tampered with, that immediately set off alarm bells.  Federal officials are telling us that they recently discovered that nine military ballots in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania had been “improperly opened” and “discarded”

According to a letter from U.S. Attorney Freed to the county elections director, the inquiry into Luzerne County’s ballot handling began Monday, and found that nine military ballots had been “improperly opened” by elections staff and “discarded.”

He wrote that “the majority” of the recovered ballots and envelopes were found in an outside dumpster — seven of the nine ballots outside their official envelopes, and two that elections staff had apparently recovered and sealed back in their envelopes. He said investigators also found four “apparently official” absentee ballot envelopes that were empty.

It appears that someone wanted to get rid of those votes permanently.  After all, you certainly don’t put votes in a dumpster for safekeeping.

Members of the U.S. military sacrifice so much to defend our nation, and so any tampering with their votes is especially grievous.

According to law enforcement authorities working on the case, seven of the votes “were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump”, and the other two votes are unknown because they had been resealed.

Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence.  Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded.   Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time.  Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot.  Of the nine ballots that were discarded and then recovered, 7 were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump. Two of the discarded ballots had been resealed inside their appropriate envelopes by Luzerne elections staff prior to recovery by the FBI and the contents of those 2 ballots are unknown.

It is extremely suspicious that all of the votes that had been “discarded” were for only one candidate.

Hopefully federal authorities will nail whoever was responsible for this, because throwing actual votes in the trash is a major offense.

And considering the fact that Pennsylvania is such an important swing state, those votes could actually help to determine who becomes the next president of the United States.

Speaking of swing states, discarded ballots have also been found in Wisconsin.

In fact, officials say that three trays of mail that included absentee ballots were recently discovered sitting in a ditch

The U.S. Postal Service is investigating how three trays of mail, including absentee ballots, ended up in a ditch line in Wisconsin, a swing state whose voters could prove crucial in the upcoming elections.

The Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office said the mail was found around 8 a.m. Monday morning near the intersection of highways 96 and CB, near the Appleton International Airport.

How in the world do ballots just happen to end up in a ditch?

This is just one of the reasons why I very much prefer the way that we used to do things.  When we require the vast majority of the population to vote in person, there is much less of a chance that votes will end up in a ditch or in a dumpster.

Unfortunately, times have changed, and in some states an extremely high percentage of voters will cast their votes by mail in this election.

In Wisconsin, the percentage of absentee votes used to be in the single digits, but thanks to the pandemic that we are currently experiencing things have dramatically changed

Prior to the pandemic, just 6% of Wisconsin voters cast absentee ballots by mail – however during the state’s April primaries, that number jumped to 60%, when 1.1 million out of 1.55 million votes were conducted through the postal service. During the August partisan primary, Wolfe said that 82% of the 867,000 votes cast were via absentee ballot.

During said primaries, thousands of voters across the state complained that they never received the absentee ballots they requested. In one case, a Milwaukee postal worker said that three bins of absentee ballots had never been delivered.

Overall, tens of millions of Americans will vote by mail in 2020, and that makes me very nervous.

There are just so many opportunities for things to go wrong, and that would be true even if everyone was trying to do the right thing.

Sadly, there are always people that try to cheat, and four of them were just arrested by authorities in Texas

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced four arrests Thursday on dozens of felony charges in connection with an alleged vote harvesting scheme during the 2018 Democratic primary elections in Gregg County.

Those four individuals could be going away for a very long time, because collectively they are facing a total of 134 felony charges

Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown, Marlena Jackson, Charlie Burns and DeWayne Ward face 134 felony charges in total, according to Paxton’s office. The allegations include election fraud, tampering with a governmental record, mail-in ballot fraud and more.

“To increase the pool of ballots needed to swing the race in Brown’s favor, the group targeted young, able-bodied voters to cast ballots by mail by fraudulently claiming the voters were ‘disabled,’ in most cases without the voters’ knowledge or consent,” Paxton’s office alleged.

Incidents of vote tampering and election fraud really do happen, and we should be very thankful when authorities are able to catch those that are responsible.

Those that follow my work regularly already know how deeply concerned I am about the future of our nation.  Decades of exceedingly foolish decisions are catching up with us in a major way, and yet we just continue to steamroll toward oblivion.

But even though I am absolutely disgusted by so many of our “politicians”, I very much want the American people to be completely free to pick whoever they want each and every election.

Without free and fair elections, there is no way that our Republic would be able to work.  So let us be extremely diligent in guarding the integrity of our votes, because if we lose that we lose any hope of ever turning things around politically.

2020 cast vote chaos chaotic Conspiracy Fact and Theory counting division Donald Trump. presidential election election Emergency Preparedness experts Forecasting Headline News Intelwars Joe Biden Mail-in ballots social unrest States Trump supporters democrats Violence Voting voting is a scam Winner

The Stage Has Been Set For The Most Chaotic Election In U.S. History

This article was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse Blog. 

If you are deeply concerned about what is going to happen in November, you are definitely not alone.  Experts on both sides of the political spectrum have been warning that it is very likely that we will not know the winner of the presidential election until well after November 3rd, and everyone pretty much agrees that the period of uncertainly that we will be forced to endure will not be good for our nation.

Those of us that are old enough clearly remember the pain that the election of 2000 caused.  The outcome hinged on the results from the state of Florida, and the endless recounts were finally brought to a conclusion after 36 very stressful days with George W. Bush up by just 537 votes.  Unfortunately, some are saying that we are potentially facing “the 2000 election on steroids” because vote counting will be going on in multiple swing states long after election night is over.

The big reason why this election is going to be so different from previous elections is because so many Americans are going to be voting by mail.  According to one recent survey, a whopping 37 percent of all voters plan to cast their votes by mail this time around…

Thirty-seven percent of registered voters said they are likely to vote by mail in the November election, by receiving a mailed ballot and either mailing it back or returning it in person, according to a new survey released Tuesday by the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape project.

Other estimates put the number as high as 40 percent, and it could go even higher than that because some states are promoting mail-in voting extremely aggressively.

In fact, as I detailed yesterday, one of my readers told me that he and his wife “have received three requests each for mail-in ballots” over the past five weeks.

We are also being told that Democrats are far more likely to vote by mail than Republicans are.  According to the same survey that I quoted above, supporters of Biden are more than twice as likely to vote by mail than Trump supporters are…

Among them, 48% of voters who plan to vote for Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden said they are likely to vote by mail, according to the survey. That’s more than twice the 23% of voters backing President Donald Trump who said they are likely to vote by mail.

It takes a lot of time to open and count ballots that have been mailed in.  If that work could be done in advance, that wouldn’t be that much of a problem.

Unfortunately, there are 14 states where it is prohibited by law to count mail-in ballots before Election Day, and that includes some of our most important swing states

Tens of millions of Americans will try to vote by mail because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But officials in 14 states are prohibited from processing mail-in ballots until Election Day; counting them could take days or weeks.

Those states include Pennsylvania and Michigan, battlegrounds that could decide the election.

It should deeply alarm all of us to hear that it “could take days or weeks” for some of these states to finally count every single ballot.

And that is just the first count.  I am not even talking about any potential recounts.

At this point, many Democrats are warning of a possible “red mirage” on the night of the election.  Many of them believe that it will look like President Trump is winning on election night, but that Joe Biden will ultimately win once all of the mail-in votes are finally counted.

As evidence, they point to the fact that there has been a “blue shift” in all national elections going back to 2004

Since 2004, mail-in ballots have been disproportionately Democratic, a phenomenon known as the “blue shift.”

So, barring a landslide, we could see a “red mirage” on Nov. 3, an election-night count of in-person votes that suggests that Trump has won — even though millions of votes for Biden are waiting to be tabulated.

Personally, I do believe that it is very likely that President Trump will be leading on the night of the election, but what is really going to matter is what happens during the days that follow.

If a Trump lead evaporates and Biden is eventually declared the winner, there will be widespread allegations that the election was stolen, and that could cause tremendous explosions of anger.

And the big tech companies are already preparing for post-election chaos.  In fact, Facebook has openly announced that they will purposely “restrict the circulation of content” in order to try to control civil unrest…

Facebook announced this week that it may restrict certain aspects of its platform following November’s general election as part of a larger effort to limit social unrest. A spokesperson for Facebook suggested that executives including Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg may censor specific information if they believe it is likely to heighten political tensions following the election.

According to a report by the Financial Times, Facebook announced this week that it will “restrict the circulation of content” following November’s election to curb violence and social unrest. The announcement follows efforts by Facebook to address concerns from those who have alleged that the platform aids in voter suppression and promotes election-misinformation.

What is this country going to look like if it takes weeks or even months to officially declare a winner?

No matter who ends up winning, I believe that the process is so flawed that it is going to tear the country apart.

And no matter what the final result is, a large percentage of the population will never accept the outcome as being legitimate.

This is already one of the most difficult chapters in U.S. history, and a bitterly contested election result will only make things even worse.

At this point, even the mainstream media is admitting that we are heading into “wild” times.  The following comes from CNN

Ask anyone about the next six weeks and they will likely give you some version of this as a response: Whoa boy. It is going to be wild.

Which it is! The last 42 days of a presidential election are always filled with unpredictable storylines, big moments and, more than anything, uncertainty.

Just about the only way that we can avoid the type of scenario that I have described is if there is an overwhelming landslide on election night.

Wouldn’t that be nice if that actually happened?

It would be wonderful if one of the candidates conceded on November 3rd or November 4th and we could avoid weeks or even months of endless national strife, but I don’t think that is going to happen.

Instead, I believe that both sides are going to fight to the bitter end, and the end will definitely be very bitter indeed.

election Intelwars Meghan markle Prince Harry trump

President Trump reacts to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle weighing in on the election

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle delivered a message this week encouraging Americans to get out and vote, which was interpreted by several politicos to be an endorsement of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden — despite the fact that Biden’s name was not mentioned by the couple.

When asked about the former royals’ purported Biden endorsement, President Donald Trump gave his own opinion of Ms. Markle before saying, “I wish a lot of luck to Harry, ’cause he’s gonna need it.”

What are the details?

The former Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s plug was aired during ABC’s TIME 100 special on Tuesday (which was National Voter Registration Day), and they used the opportunity to discuss the importance of Americans voting in the November 3rd general election.

After thanking TIME for the honor of being recognized, the two warned against the damage that can be done through hostile online rhetoric. Prince Harry declared that “it’s not only time to reflect, but to act.”

Markle noted that “we’re just six weeks out from Election Day,” before saying, “Every year we’re told the same thing: that this is the most important election of our lifetime. But this one is. When we vote, our values are put into action and our voices are heard. Your voice is a reminder that you matter, because you do, and you deserve to be heard.”

The prince then explained that he would not be able to vote “this year, in the U.S.,” and that he has never “been able to vote” in his homeland “his entire life.” But the British noble told Americans, “”As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity.”

TIME reported:

Although it’s against protocol for members of the royal family to get involved in politics, since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their roles as senior royals and moved to North America earlier this year, the couple have become increasingly vocal about civics and issues close to them like climate change. Markle in particular has worked to get out the vote in the past month. (The Queen has also encouraged U.K. citizens to vote in the past).

A member of the White House press pool told President Trump during a briefing on Wednesday, “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle chimed in on the U.S. election, and essentially asked people to vote for Joe Biden. I wanted to get your reaction to that.”

While shaking his head, the president replied, “I’m not a fan of hers, and I would say this — and she probably has heard that — but I wish a lot of luck to Harry, ’cause he’s gonna need it.”

election Felons Florida Intelwars mike bloomberg Vote

Mike Bloomberg helps pay court fines for 31,100 Florida felons so they can vote

Billionaire and former Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has raised more than $16 million toward paying off the court fines of Florida felons in order to make them eligible to vote, and so far the ongoing effort has settled obligations in full for more than 31,000 former prisoners ahead of Election Day.

What are the details?

Bloomberg aides told The Daily Mail that the former mayor of New York City — who has pledged to spend $100 million to help Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden win on Nov. 3 — rallied other donors and added nearly $17 million to the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition’s $5 million raised toward pay off fines owed by felons so that they can vote.

The outlet reported that according to the Florida Right Restoration Coalition, “other donors include John Legend, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, Ben & Jerry’s, Levi Strauss & Co, the Miami Dolphins, the Orlando Magic, the Miami Heat and Steven Spielberg.”

After Bloomberg and friends’ contributions, the initiative has raised enough money to pay off the accounts of 31,100 felons, and according to Axios, the fines for those individuals have already been paid.

“The right to vote is fundamental to our democracy and no American should be denied that right. Working together with the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition, we are determined to end disenfranchisement and the discrimination that has always driven it,” Bloomberg said in a written statement, The Daily Mail reported.

The former prisoners eligible to apply for their fines and restitution being paid must already be registered to vote with payoffs of less than $1,500, and they must be “black or Latino,” the outlet noted. NBC News reported that these are “populations that have historically backed Democrats in larger numbers.”

What’s the background?

The Washington Post reported that organizing by the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition led to Florida voters passing “a statewide constitutional amendment in 2018 that gave former felons, except those convicted of murder or felony sexual offenses, the opportunity to vote in upcoming elections.”

As TheBlaze previously noted:

After Florida’s lifetime voting ban for felons was reversed by an amendment, the Republican-controlled Florida legislature passed a law requiring those convicted felons to pay all outstanding court debts before being allowed to vote.

In May, a federal judge called that law unconstitutional, saying it was essentially a poll tax and ordering the state to come up with a different process.

The Post also pointed out:

Subsequent court challenges upheld the power of the legislature to condition voting rights on the payment of debts by former felons. Judge Barbara Lagoa, who is under consideration by President Trump as a possible replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, cast a concurring opinion on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upholding the state law requiring payment of debts.

Business buying now buying the dips Cloud Company CRISIS deep recession demand election equities experts Fear Forecasting health facilities healthy hospitals Intelwars markets Opinions pandemic panic recovery Stock Market Vaccine

PANDEMIC PANIC: 2nd Wave Climax – FED CRIPPLED!

This article was contributed by Lior Gantz of the Wealth Research Group. 

What NO ONE expects is a deep recession; there are a number of CONFLICTING THEORIES as to what the recovery will look like, but nothing about entering a recession. The consensus is that the pandemic is highly contagious, but not lethal; “with a vaccine coming and FEAR LEVELS subsiding, a recovery has begun,” is the general idea.

Where OPINIONS DIFFER is about its strength and inclusiveness of the recovery:

  1. Dichotomy – This is the thesis that claims BIG BUSINESS is eating up SMALL BUSINESS, so the recovery is HAPPENING, but it isn’t a healthy one. We’ll see GDP printing better stats with each PASSING QUARTER, but poverty is increasing, since BIG gets BIGGER and small gets TINY.
  2. Vaccine-Dependent – This camp believes that the PENT-UP DEMAND will be unleashed, once first-responders agree to take the vaccine. That stamp of approval will LEAD to CONFIDENCE worldwide; I want to show you how much DISTRUST THERE IS in the value stocks, which are companies that dominate their industries but are growing slowly and predictably, not fast and sporadically.

The market believes that each company that isn’t on the cloud is going out of business, which has led to a bubble:

You should consider THE FACTS about the pandemic before I move on to the THIRD CAMP, which are the investors who believe in the “V”-shaped or quick “U”-shaped recovery. They’re BUYING DIPS, as I am right now, following our FOUR WATCH LISTS: 1, 2, 3, and TECH.

The MOST IMPORTANT fact is that the PANDEMIC ITSELF isn’t lethal; the real crisis is overwhelmed hospitals and insufficient medical staff.

While no one likes to see CROWDED HEALTH FACILITIES, if those do return, this would be nowhere near the panic levels of March, when healthy people feared FOR THEIR LIVES.

Therefore, to expect markets to price in MARCH LOWS is a bit of a stretch of the imagination.

Instead, be agile in your thinking; there are REAL BARGAINS out there. Flexibility is needed, though. Don’t wait for sellers to hand you once-in-a-generation prices for the second time in six months.

As you can see, tight presidential races WEIGH ON PRICES, since it’s a huge unknown factor, especially when the parties are THIS POLARIZED on policy and public ideas.

It’s a tale of two Americas with two opposite agendas.

Where does gold come into the picture?

  1. Slow “V” or Fast “U” – Those who are FREE-MARKET oriented understand that businesses have muscled through the ROUGH PATCH and that capitalistic forces are driving innovation in this post-COVID-19 reality.

Wall Street and institutional money will be ENTERING EQUITIES on this severe dip and you ought to know that BUYING NOW is playing with fire, but I am certainly am.

Gold stocks have also reached their MOMENT OF TRUTH:

Courtesy: U.S. Global Investors

They MUST PENETRATE below the average of 2.5; that will signal a MULTI-YEAR TREND, which will confirm the bull market. The fact that Kinross and Newmont, among other large-cap miners, are RAISING DIVIDENDS, is a healthy sign of confidence from the most reputable management teams out there.

The September dip has allowed us to find companies with GREAT SUPPORT and I’m going to present new stock profiles, since, as the chart above shows, we’re ON THE CUSP of the REAL MOVE.

Gold might sell in this panic even further, but that’s not the REAL TREND; think ahead by 6-12 months and you’ll realize that inflation is accelerating!
