Will Globalists Sacrifice The Dollar To Get Their “New World Order”? – by Brandon Smith – https://www.activistpost.com/2019/01/will-globalists-sacrifice-the-dollar-to-get-their-new-world-order.html – “There are many people today in the liberty movement who understand this dynamic, but even in alternative economic circles there are some that do not understand the full picture when it comes to central banks and fiat mechanisms. There is a false notion that paper currencies are the life blood of the establishment and that they will seek to protect these currencies at all costs. This might have been true 20 years ago or more, but it is not true today. Things change… The king of this delusion is the US dollar. As the world reserve currency it is thought by some to be “untouchable”, a pillar of the globalist structure that will be defended for many decades to come. The reality, however, is that the dollar is nothing more than another con game on paper to the globalists; a farce that they are happy to sacrifice in order to further their goals of complete centralization of world trade and therefore the complete centralization of control over human survival… That is to say, the dollar is a stepping stone for them, nothing more.”

Paul Levy email, 1/18/19: Hi Everyone, Happy 2019. I hope you are well. Here is something I just wrote about the previous century’s greatest gift to our present moment in time. I’ve also included below my most recent interview – with Mel Fabregas from Veritas Radio. Enjoy, keep lucidly dreaming, Paul

THE TWENTIETH CENTURY’S GREATEST GIFT TO 2019 – by Paul Levy – Quantum physics is revealing to us that we are not just passive observers of this world, but are active participants who are involved—whether we know it or not—in creating our experience of both the world and ourselves. In other words, quantum physics—the wisdom tradition of modern times—is revealing to us that we are intrinsically creative beings by our very nature… The revelations emerging from quantum physics are expanding the realm of the possible to previously unimaginable degrees, overcoming—and waking us up from—what Russian philosopher Nicolas Berdyaev calls “the nightmare of the finite.” It is revealing that the world is more open-ended—in touch with the infinite—and malleable than we had previously imagined, and that our world is one that we have more than one hand in creating. It is a world, Berdyaev continues, “open and plastic, with boundless horizons and possibilities of breaking through to other worlds.”.. Quantum theorist Christopher Fuchs writes, “The real question is which point of view about quantum mechanics is the most ripe for leading to new things…. Understanding that the world is, at its core, malleable to our hands? I think that that will ultimately be the greatest gift this century [the twentieth] has to give to the next.” The mutability of the universe—which quantum physics has discovered is one of the primary aspects of nature—says that nothing is absolute and fixed, nothing is so fundamental that it cannot change under certain circumstances,and this includes the very laws of the universe. Even an incredibly, ridiculously unlikely outcome could possibly happen “in reality.” Quantum physics—in questioning and pushing the edge about what is truly possible—has promoted itself to become the magical elixir that heals the venom of the impossible. – Link to Paul’s interview on Radio Veritas: http://www.veritasradio.com/guests/2019/01jan/VS-190117-plevy.php

The Russian Pension Chickens Are Coming Home to Roost… – by The Saker – http://www.unz.com/tsaker/the-russian-pension-chickens-are-coming-home-to-roost/ – “Over 50 percent of Russians are disappointed in the government of Dmitry Medvedev, which, they believe, is unable to curb growing prices and provide jobs for people, a new poll has revealed. Some 23 percent said they were absolutely sure that the government must resign, with another 30 percent telling Levada-Center that they were also leaning toward this opinion. This means that a total of 53 percent would like the country to have a new cabinet. Trust in the government has crumbled since September, when only 23 percent advocated its resignation. Meanwhile, the proportion of people who believed the government should stay in charge was 40 percent, with 14 percent expressing full confidence in the cabinet, and 26 percent saying that resignation wouldn’t be the best idea…. In the post-modern West, where political discourse has been reduced to a particularly nauseating form of intellectual flatulence, the very notion of “class” and “class warfare” has been fully replaced with vapid (pseudo-) identity politics which completely obfuscate all the real issues and problems our world is dealing with. Thus, by removing the concepts and categories needed to understand the nature of the struggle which is taking place internationally, but also inside each of the countries currently living under the AngloZionist yoke, the leaders of the Empire have deprived the people they rule over from the means to understand why and how they are oppressed. All that nonsense about “gay” rights, gun control, #meetoo, the many sex scandals, the struggle for racial identity (White or Black or any other), abortion, drugs and all the rest of the crap we are fed on a daily basis by the AngloZionist propaganda machine are primarily a distraction to keep the eyes of the general population from the real issues. In a way, this zombification and re-direction to fake topics serves exactly the same function as the red cape of the bullfighter: to keep the bull busy with trying to gore a harmless red piece of cloth while completely missing the real cause of his suffering and eventual death… From that point of view, the Russian people are much better informed and have a much better understanding of what is going on.” (emphasis added) – Question: Are the people of the West even marginally prepared for media which present them with something resembling the truth?

Video: The EU Votes for the Installation of New US Missiles in Europe – by Manlio Dinucci – https://www.globalresearch.ca/video-eu-votes-installation-new-us-missiles-europe/5665231 – “Near the United Nations Glass Palace in New York, there is a metallic sculpture entitled “Evil Defeated by Good”, representing Saint George transfixing a dragon with his lance. It was donated by the USSR in 1990 to celebrate the INF Treaty concluded with the USA in 1987, which banned land-based short- and mid-range nuclear missiles (a reach of between 500 and 5,000 km). Symbolically, the body of the dragon is in fact made with pieces of US Pershing-2 ballistic missiles (originally based in West Germany) and Soviet SS-20 missiles (originally based in the USSR)… But the nuclear dragon, which in the sculpture is shown as dying, is now being reborn. Thanks to Italy and other countries of the European Union, which, at the United Nations General Assembly, voted against the resolution presented by Russia on the “Preservation and Implementation of the INF Treaty”, rejected by 46 to 43 with 78 abstentions… The European Union – of which 21 of its 27 members are part of NATO (including the United Kingdom, which is currently leaving the EU) – has thus taken a uniform stance with the position of NATO, which in turn has taken a uniform stance with that of the United States.” (emphasis added) – Comment: But not to worry, the Alliance will be reversing all of this soon.

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s remarks and answers to media questions at a news conference on the results of Russian diplomacy in 2018 Moscow, January 16, 2019 (transcript) – https://southfront.org/foreign-minister-sergey-lavrovs-remarks-and-answers-to-media-questions-at-a-news-conference-on-the-results-of-russian-diplomacy-in-2018-moscow-january-16-2019/ – “Ladies and gentlemen, We are delighted to welcome you to this traditional news conference on the results of our foreign policy performance last year… We would like this meeting to take place, just as before, in the form of a direct dialogue. Therefore, I will try to keep my opening remarks as concise as possible, especially since President Vladimir Putin has already spoken about our approaches to the main current topics more than once, including at his annual news conference held on December 20, 2018, as well as during the interviews he gave to Serbian newspapers yesterday… It is needless to say that the international situation remained complicated. The conflict potential increased last year, primarily because of the stubborn unwillingness of some Western countries led by the United States to accept the realities of the objectively developing multipolar world, as well as because of their desire to continue to force their will on others by means of pressure and economic and propaganda instruments…”

YPG Should Not Be Allowed To Let Syrian Army Enter Manbij: Turkeyhttps://southfront.org/ypg-should-not-be-allowed-to-let-syrian-army-enter-manbij-turkey/ – ” ‘The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) should not be allowed to let forces of the regime [of Syrian President Bashar Assad] enter Manbij,’ Hami Aksoy said during a press briefing, according to the Russian news agency, Sputnik… The Turkish diplomat also warned that the upcoming withdrawal of U.S. forces from northeastern Syria shouldn’t be in favor of the YPG and its political wing, the Democratic Union Party (PYD).”

Trump’s Anti-Iran Campaign & NDAA Clause Behind ‘Inhumane’ Detention of PressTV Anchor Marzieh Hashemi – by Whitney Webb – https://www.mintpressnews.com/presstv-american-citizen-detained/253904/ – “Hashemi — an African-American born in New Orleans, who later converted to Islam and currently works as a journalist for the Iranian English-language news network PressTV — has since been transferred to a detention facility in Washington at the request of the FBI, according to reports from PressTV and the Associated Press. U.S. officials have yet to provide any justification for Hashemi’s detention… Once Hashemi was allowed to speak to her family in the United States, she detailed a slew of abuses she had suffered during her detention, which were clear violations of her religious rights. For instance, Hashemi told her family that her hijab, or head covering, had been ripped off by prison guards and that she had been forced to pose for her mugshot with her hair exposed… Furthermore, Hashemi was also only offered pork for food, even though the meat is forbidden under Islamic law. She was subsequently denied any other halal or vegetarian food after turning the pork down. Her daughter told PressTV that Hashemi has been living off of crackers since she was first detained on Sunday. Hashemi’s daughter also stated that her mother stated that she had been “shackled” and was being treated like a criminal, in spite of the fact that no charges have been filed against her… Hashemi’s arrest took place just as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was conducting his multi-nation “Anti-Iran tour” throughout the Middle East in a bid to “get Arab countries to work together to roll back Iranian influence in the region and take on the militias Iran is backing.” (emphasis added)

US-led Coalition Airstrikes Kill Scores Of Civilians Fleeing ISIS In Euphrates Valleyhttps://southfront.org/us-led-coalition-airstrikes-kill-scores-of-civilians-fleeing-isis-in-euphrates-valley/ – “On January 18, US-led coalition warplanes killed more than 20 civilians who were trying to flee the ISIS-held town of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani in the middle Euphrates River Valley, according to several Syrian sources… ‘The number of victims is expected to raise as many wounded are in critical condition,’ a reporter of the Deir Ezzor 24 blog said… Local activists revealed that the victims, most of them were women and children, had managed to escape from al-Baghuz al-Fawqani and reached a checkpoint of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). However, the US-backed group refused to let them pass and coalition warplanes targeted them on their way back to the town.”

After Manbij bombing, Macron says French troops will stay in Syria –  – http://www.atimes.com/article/after-manbij-bombing-macron-says-french-troops-will-stay-in-syria/ – ” ‘The retreat from Syria announced by our American friends cannot make us deviate from our strategic objective: eradicating Daesh,’ Macron said in reference to the group also known as Islamic State or ISIS, according to AFP… He cited the deaths this week of 16 people in a suicide bombing in the northeastern Syrian city of Manbij, and said France would remain “militarily engaged” in the region over the coming year… Last month, Macron joined prominent figures in Trump’s cabinet and lawmakers in both major US political parties in criticizing Trump’s decision to pull US military personnel from Syria… ‘To be allies is to fight shoulder to shoulder. It’s the most important thing for a head of state and head of the military. An ally should be dependable,’ Macron said in December. ‘

Syrian Kurds, government plan for US withdrawal – by Sami Moubayed – http://www.atimes.com/article/syrian-kurds-government-plan-for-us-withdrawal/ – “Having run a semi-autonomous zone for years, the Kurds expect the right to open branches of their political parties throughout the rest of Syria and to promote their language, culture and music, in addition to running their own schools… Finally, they are aiming to elect their own governors and municipal councils, without having either imposed from the central government in Damascus… This is all easier said than done. Once the talks conclude and reach an executional level, initial agreements are likely to hit a series of brick walls.”

Oregon to Become First State to Mandate Universal Home Visits of All Families with New-born Children – by Brian Shilhavy – http://healthimpactnews.com/2019/oregon-to-become-first-state-to-mandate-universal-home-visits-of-all-families-with-new-born-children/ – “The Beaverton Valley Times interviewed Patrick Allen, the director of the Oregon Health Authority, who reportedly expressed excitement at the prospect of requiring home visits of all new parents, including adoptive parents: When the program is complete, every new parent — this includes adoptions — would receive a series of two or three visits by someone like a nurse or other health care practitioner… The visits could include basic health screenings for babies; hooking parents up with primary care physicians; linking them to other services; and coordinating the myriad childhood immunizations that babies need. (bold emphasis added by Shilhavy)… Allen made it clear that they were targeting all children, not just troubled families: ‘This isn’t something for people in trouble. This is stuff all kids need.’ Allen said… The state of Oregon sees about 40,000 births per year, and the universal home visit program has apparently already been piloted in Lincoln County.” (underlining added)

Trump Pledges to Protect America From Any Enemy Missile – by David Vergun – https://dod.defense.gov/News/Article/Article/1734640/trump-pledges-to-protect-america-from-any-enemy-missile/ – “Missile defense is so important in a time of rapidly evolving threats from around the world, he said. Adversaries are acquiring bigger and stronger arsenals. They’re increasing their lethal strike capabilities and they’re focused on building long-range missiles that can reach targets within the United States… ‘As president, my first duty is the defense of our country,’ he said.” – Comment: Lies, and the Lying Liars that tell them.

Trump Unveils Space-Based Missile Defense Strategy – by Carla Babb – https://www.voanews.com/a/trump-to-unveil-space-based-missile-defense-strategy/4747188.html – “PENTAGON — President Donald Trump unveiled the military’s long-delayed Missile Defense Review (MDR), the first overhaul of U.S. missile defense policy since 2010… Speaking at the Pentagon Thursday, Trump said his plan will allow the United states to detect and destroy missiles “anywhere, anytime, anyplace.”.. ‘It is not enough to keep pace with our adversaries, we must outpace them at every turn,’ he said… Officials say the doctrine, initially expected in 2017, has been frequently rewritten to keep up with changing missile threats posed by North Korea, China, Russia and Iran.” – Comment: I want some of what he’s smoking.

Catherine Austin Fitts – Federal Government Running Secret Open Bailout – Interview by Greg Hunter (44 min) – In which Catherine argues that the Constitutional protections for property rights have been entirely undermined by massive back-door manipulation of statutes and regulations, and that we have entered an era of unprecedented dangers.

On Originalism in Constitutional Interpretation – by: Steven G. Calabresi – https://constitutioncenter.org/interactive-constitution/white-pages/on-originalism-in-constitutional-interpretation – “Originalism is grounded in the two-century-long movement toward constitutionalism, and it is behind the U.S. Constitution itself. Consider the following ten purposes that underlie the U.S. Constitution. Critically, all of these counsel in favor of an originalist rather than a living constitutionalist interpretation of the text of the Constitution, which would undermine the accomplishment of these purposes at every turn.” (emphasis added)

A Border Barrier Solution – by Sartre – https://www.veteransnewsreport.com/2019/01/15/a-border-barrier-solution/ – “The connotation of slavery has a 21st century meaning that the progressive collectivists do not understand. Yet, they are the most eager advocates of pushing for a divided country. Today’s society is designed to keep citizens in a “PC” slavery that is a hallmark of open borders invaders and their proponents. This res publica mindset does not advance or defend a commonwealth… Establishing an effective barrier is necessary to preserve the integrity of our territorial boundaries. However, the lack of will in Congress or in the Federal courts has proven that a sensible resolution to an entirely avoidable conflict is unlikely. So consider a method of action that can sidestep the radical extremists who are the neo-establishment… President Trump should direct the military to create an outpost that would be constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Trump should direct funds from the foreign aid allotments that go to countries that work against our own national interest. The key to this option is to lease from Mexico a one mile corridor south of the current border where a permanent barrier wall would be built outside the jurisdiction of the U.S. Congress and Federal courts.”

“Is the US Planning to Wage War on Russia and China?”: Interview by Bonnie Faulkner with Prof. Michel Chossudovsky – https://southfront.org/is-the-us-planning-to-wage-war-on-russia-and-china-interview-with-prof-michel-chossudovsky/ – “I think that we’re at a very dangerous crossroads in our history because there’s an evolving situation in the Middle East. There’s a shift in alliances. There’s a global military agenda. Let’s bear in mind that since 2001 we have had a whole sequence of military operations, some of them conducted by US allies, but invariably Washington has been behind the wars in Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Lebanon, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and so on, and of course, Ukraine. So essentially what is unfolding in 2019 – in fact, it has been unfolding for a long period of time – is a global military agenda. It’s the globalization of war.”

Pompeo Turns Reality Upside Down – by Philip M. Giraldi – https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2019/01/17/pompeo-turns-reality-upside-down.html – “Along the way Pompeo trots out a lot of half-truths and even completely fabricated lies, saying that America’s “timidity” had let to the rise of ISIS, had enabled Iran’s government to crush the “Green Revolution,” had freed Tehran to interfere all over the region, had allowed Hezbollah to accumulate a massive arsenal to threaten Israel, and had permitted Bashar al-Assad to kill his own people with chemical weapons. And worst of all, there was a false desire for peace that led to ‘a [nuclear] deal with Iran, our common enemy.’.. Pompeo concludes from the record of calamities that ‘So today, what did we learn from all of this? We learned that when America retreats, chaos often follows. When we neglect our friends, resentment builds. And when we partner with enemies, they advance…’ “

US Navy moves toward unleashing killer robot ships on the world’s oceans – by David B. Larter – https://www.defensenews.com/naval/2019/01/15/the-us-navy-moves-toward-unleashing-killer-robot-ships-on-the-worlds-oceans/ – ” ‘It’s a shift in mindset that says, instead of putting as much stuff on the ship for as much money as I have, you start thinking in a different way,’ Boxall said in a December interview. ‘You start saying: ‘How small can my platform be to get everything I need to be on it?’.. We want everything to be only as big as it needs to be. You make it smaller and more distributable, given all dollars being about equal. And when I look at the force, I think: ‘Where can we use unmanned so that I can push it to a smaller platform?’ ‘… The Navy is getting ready to find out.”

Feds Can’t Force You To Unlock Your iPhone With Finger Or Face, Judge Rules – by Thomas Brewster – https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomasbrewster/2019/01/14/feds-cant-force-you-to-unlock-your-iphone-with-finger-or-face-judge-rules/#621fb28142b7 – “Previously, U.S. judges had ruled that police were allowed to force unlock devices like Apple’s iPhone with biometrics, such as fingerprints, faces or irises. That was despite the fact feds weren’t permitted to force a suspect to divulge a passcode. But according to a ruling uncovered by Forbes, all logins are equal.”

Is Bolton Steering Trump into War with Iran? – by Patrick J. Buchanan – https://buchanan.org/blog/is-bolton-steering-trump-into-war-with-iran-135696 – “Last September, when Shiite militants launched three mortar shells into the Green Zone in Baghdad, which exploded harmlessly in a vacant lot, Bolton called a series of emergency meetings and directed the Pentagon to prepare a menu of targets, inside Iran, for U.S. air and missile strikes in retaliationBolton’s former deputy, Mira Ricardel, reportedly told a gathering the shelling into the Green Zone was “an act of war” to which the U.S. must respond decisively… Bolton has long believed a U.S. confrontation with Iran is both inevitable and desirable. In 2015, he authored a New York Times op-ed whose title, “To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran,” said it all. He has urged that “regime change” in Iran be made a declared goal of U.S. foreign policy.” (emphasis added)

Connecticut Governor Lamont can’t wait to bathe the state he took an oath to protect with 5G radiation:  Governor Ned Lamont’s 2019 State of the State Addresshttps://www.nbcconnecticut.com/news/local/Governor-Ned-Lamonts-2019-State-of-the-State-Address-504117451.html – “Second, to attract millennials, top talent and leading companies, Connecticut will need to invest wisely in its urban centers – making them affordable and lively, where families want to live, work and play. That means great schools, safe streets and by making our cities the first with 5G in New England. The telecommunication companies are ready to start building – let’s harness that excitement, and get WiFi access into every rural town. ” (emphasis added) – Comment: I would assume that The Alliance has Lamont on their short list of perpetrators.

DC court says Holocaust survivors can sue Hungary in the US for huge reparations – by Yaakov Schwartz – https://www.timesofisrael.com/dc-court-says-holocaust-survivors-can-sue-hungary-in-the-us-for-huge-reparations/ – “The second-highest court in the United States has reinstated a lawsuit brought by a group of Holocaust survivors and their families against the government of Hungary and its national railroad. The class action suit demands restitution for the role Hungary played in the murder of 500,000 Jews and the seizure of their property during World War II… Setting the stage for what could be a landmark civil suit running into the tens of billions of dollars, Judge Patricia A. Millett wrote for the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on December 28 that Hungary could not force the plaintiffs to have the case tried in a Hungarian court… The decision overturned that of a federal judge who ruled that the 1947 Paris Peace Treaty between Hungary and the Allied powers granted Hungary immunity.”

PG&E prepares bankruptcy filing after California wildfires – by Liana B. Baker, Mike Spector, Jessica DiNapoli – https://www.reuters.com/article/us-pg-e-us-bankruptcy-idUSKCN1P815B – “Its shares plunged 52 percent on Monday to $8.38, giving it a market capitalization of less than $4.5 billion. The stock is down more than 80 percent from late 2017, before wildfires devastated PG&E’s service areas. Bond prices also fell sharply on Monday… PG&E’s chief executive officer was replaced on Sunday by General Counsel John Simon on an interim basis… San Francisco-based PG&E is working on lining up roughly $5.5 billion in so-called debtor-in-possession financing to help operations during bankruptcy proceedings… The utility said the bankruptcy process would not affect electric or natural gas services for customers. Company advisers expect that it may take up to two years to emerge from bankruptcy.’
