Whom Owns The Gold, Makes The Rules

Give Me Control Of …

“Give me control of a nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.”
Supposedly this is a quote from Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild. Ignore the distinct possibility that he did not make this statement, but let’s assume the concept, if not the quote, is accurate.

  • Give me control of the DNC and I care not who the primary voters chose.
Hmmmm. Ask Bernie Sanders if he agrees.

Clinton: "Destroy Syria for Israel"

A newly-released Hilary Clinton email confirmed that the Obama administration has deliberately provoked the civil war in Syria as the “best way to help Israel.” In an indication of her murderous nature, Clinton wrote that it was the “right thing” to personally threaten Bashar Assad’s family with death.
Battle of Aleppo Would Have Been Long Over if Not for the US

Russia and the Syrian government have launched a joint large-scale humanitarian relief operation in Aleppo, establishing three corridors for civilians and one for militants wishing to lay down arms,

The storms of the future are here now

"Our atmosphere is changing. We literally do not have the same sort of atmosphere as we did 20 or 100 years ago. A warmer atmosphere is able to hold more water vapor, and that means  the heaviest rainstorms are getting more intense."
Global warming and the future of storms

Hurricanes will become more frequent and more intense
