Video Emerges of Joe Biden Calling U.S. Troops ‘Stupid Bastards’ During Speech. Biden Campaign Responds.

by Ryan Saavedra
Daily Wire

A video emerged on Friday of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling soldiers “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch” during a speech overseas to U.S. soldiers while he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration.

“I have incredibly good judgment,” Biden said. “One, I married Jill, and two, I appointed Johnson to the academy. I just want you to know that. Clap for that, you stupid bastards.”

Moments later, Biden appeared to say that the soldiers were “a dull bunch” and that they “must be slow.”

FBI Agent Who Led Flynn Probe Said Mueller’s Team Had a ‘Get Trump’ Attitude

A government memo released Thursday shows that the FBI special agent who oversaw the investigation of Michael Flynn harbored doubts about the basis for the probe.

by Chuck Ross
DailyCaller.com

An FBI special agent who worked on Crossfire Hurricane told prosecutors last week that he saw little reason to investigate Michael Flynn and that he believed that members of the special counsel’s team prosecuted the former national security adviser in order to “get Trump,” according to a memo released late Thursday.

William Barnett, an FBI special agent, was interviewed on Sept. 17 by Jeffrey Jensen, a U.S. attorney in Missouri who is leading a Justice Department review of the case against Flynn.

Barnett, who worked out of the FBI’s Washington field office, was the lead investigator on the Flynn component of Crossfire Hurricane.

The FBI opened Crossfire Hurricane on July 31, 2016, and began investigating four Trump campaign aides, including Flynn, as possible agents of the Russian government. The Flynn investigation was dubbed Crossfire Razor.

Gold-Stock Seasonal Plunge

by Adam Hamilton
Zeal LLC

The gold miners’ stocks have just been hammered, plunging to new correction lows. That shattered their indexes’ 50-day moving averages, pounding nails in the coffin of this sector’s recent high consolidation. This necessary correction probably isn’t over yet. It is still small and short compared to this bull market’s precedent, the gold stocks are nowhere near oversold, and they are heading into a seasonal-plunge month.

Seeing the gold stocks rolling over into a correction shouldn’t surprise anyone. They enjoyed a great run, as evident in their leading and dominant sector benchmark the GDX VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF. From mid-March’s pandemic stock-panic lows to early August, GDX rocketed 134.1% higher in just 4.8 months! That powerful and fast upleg left gold stocks seriously overbought, necessitating a correction.

That healthy process to rebalance stretched technicals and greedy sentiment began right away. In the first four trading days after GDX peaked at $44.48 in early August, this ETF plunged 12.2%.

Kamala Harris Praises BLM, Says Ongoing Protests Are ‘Essential’ for Change in US

Harris praised the ‘brilliance’ and ‘impact’ of Black Lives Matter

by Sam Dorman
FOX News

Peaceful protests against racial injustice are critical for the nation’s progress and help to keep law enforcement in check, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said Friday.

“Nothing that we have achieved that has been about progress, in particular around civil rights, has come without a fight, and so I always am going to interpret these protests as an essential component of evolution in our country — as an essential component or mark of a real democracy,” the vice presidential nominee said during the NAACP’s national convention.

She added that protests were “necessary” as “the people’s voices must be heard, and it is often the people who must speak to get their government to do what it is supposed to do, but may not do naturally unless the people speak loudly — and obviously peacefully.”

FNC’s Napolitano on PA Discarded Ballots: Prosecutors Feeding ‘Fuel to the Fire’ with Trump Mention

by Pam Key
Breitbart.com

Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano discussed the case of nine discarded military ballots found in Pennsylvania on Friday with comments critical of the prosecutors.

Napolitano said, “Usually an investigation of election irregularities doesn’t occur until after Election Day, because there’s no such thing as an irregularity until all the votes are counted.”

He continued, “When you vote by absentee or when you vote by paper ballot, they send you a package. You fill out the ballot, you don’t sign it, you seal it in an envelope, and you sign the envelope. Then you must put that envelope containing your ballot in another envelope, and you put that whole package in the mail. If, when the package arrives, there is no inner envelope, then the ballot is deemed — their word, not mine — naked and the vote does not count.

British Ambassador Craig Murray Exposes the Corrupt and Censored Assange Extradition Hearing

by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
PaulCraigRoberts.org

Ambassador Murray is upfront: “I strongly expect the final decision was made in this case even before opening arguments were received.”

Although the hearing is being conducted in a British court, the US government has controlled the hearing and has determined what evidence could be presented:

“The plan of the US Government throughout has been to limit the information available to the public and limit the effective access to a wider public of what information is available. Thus we have seen the extreme restrictions on both physical and video access. A complicit mainstream media has ensured that those of us who know what is happening are very few in the wider population.”

Even Ambassador Murray’s reports on the hearing are censored by social media:

Report: U.K. Chief Scientific Adviser Owns £600,000 Worth of Shares in Covid Vaccine Manufacturer

Government says there is no conflict of interest

by Steve Watson
Info Wars

The UK’s Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance has hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of shares in a company that has been contracted to develop a coronavirus vaccine for the government, a report has revealed.

The Telegraph notes that Vallance owns 43,000 shares in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) where he used to work as head of research and development.

Vallance previously accumulated 404,201 GSK shares, equating to a humongous £6.1 million in six years between 2012 to 2018, according to the report.

When he was appointed by the government, Vallance sold most of the shares, cashing in on £5 million, but did retain a sizeable portion, which would provide quite a return should GSK’s vaccine come out on top over that of other pharmaceutical companies.

Gold is Down, What Exactly is Going on Here? with Rob Kirby

from Kerry Lutz's Financial Survival Network

Click Here to Listen to the Audio

According to Rob Kirby, this raid like all the others is being orchestrated by the desperate monetary authorities to try to make the dollar look pretty. Unfortunately, there’s not enough lipstick in the world to keep the fraud going. Physical metal is in short supply and demand is off the charts. This will only serve to hasten the demise of the dollar, who’s time is shorter than ever. Rob is of the opinion that it doesn’t matter how long it takes. It gives you more time to prepare for the inevitable. There’s nothing that can be done. The Comex has doubled the number of suppliers of product to deliver physical metal against their contract. Just wait a while and you’ll see no availability of metal at any fiat price.

MSM Stokes Violence, Dem Voter Fraud, Economy Still Weak

Greg Hunter’s Weekly News Wrap-Up for September 25th, 2020

by Greg Hunter
USA Watchdog

If you want to know who to blame all the violence on, you can find many guilty parties. It’s billionaires like George Soros funding prosecutors that will not prosecute in liberal cities. It’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa. It’s some of the biggest corporations in America, and it’s most definitely the mainstream media that hides the facts and acts as a biased information arm of the communist/Marxist Democrat party. It’s not journalism. It’s propaganda, and it’s helping to fuel the violence in America.

The voter fraud schemes by Democrats are emerging and seeing the light of day. They are blatant attempts to swing the November Election through voter fraud and so-called ballot harvesting. No doubt, this is going to end up in the Supreme Court, which is why Trump wants his pick on the bench by Election Day.

Don’t Be a Party to Parties

by Robert E. Wright
The American Institute for Economic Research

By the title I mean political parties, not the fun get-togethers that help us to achieve community immunity from Covid-19 and other long-forgotten but still extant little buggers.

If I told you that Murica was controlled by two national cartels that have long been in cahoots with each other but now appear poised to engage in the greatest turf war in a century and a half, you’d want governments great and small to crack down on them using RICO statutes and all the other law enforcement tools at their disposal.

But governments won’t do anything like that because the cartels run most American governments and have made their sundry nefarious activities not only legal but the very paragon of “democracy.”

Unlock the Damned Playgrounds, Already

Playing outside is one of the safest group activities kids can do, yet Gavin Newsom and other pols are extending the pandemic misery indefinitely.

by Matt Welch
Reason.com

“While much else” in California “has been allowed to gradually reopen—bars, restaurants, gyms, the zoo, even museums,” KPBS San Diego reported earlier this month, “playgrounds appear to be closed indefinitely.”

Young kids contract, suffer from, and transmit Covid-19 at significantly lower rates than adults. Their mental health during the pandemic has taken “a serious hit,” studies keep showing (and personal experience keeps reaffirming), due to the social isolation and familial cabin fever. High among the most coronavirus-safe activities children can engage in with people outside their immediate family is playing outdoors.

Nevertheless, politicians persist in wrapping police tape around facilities where kids might find some relief. Worse yet, in some misgoverned jurisdictions there are no stated criteria for letting them play.

Lessons on Inflation from the Past

by Alasdair MacLeod
Gold Money

This article examines two inflationary experiences in the past in an attempt to predict the likely outcome of today’s monetary policies. The German hyperinflation of 1923 demonstrated that it took surprisingly little monetary inflation to collapse the purchasing power of the paper mark. This is relevant to the fate of the “whatever it takes” inflationary policies of today’s governments and their central banks. The management of John Law’s Mississippi bubble, when he used paper money to rig the market is precisely what central bank policy is aimed at achieving today. By binding the fate of the currency to that of financial assets, as John Law proved, it is the currency that is destroyed.

Trump Should Make a Recess Appointment to the Supreme Court

by Don Brown
American Thinker

The United States Constitution, at Article II, Section 2, Clause 3, provides that [t]he President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.”

In other words, the Constitution allows the president to make recess appointments, which are temporary, but effective, while the Senate is in recess.

This includes the power to make recess appointments to the Supreme Court.

Why is there a need to do this?

Because this presidential election is a litigation fiasco waiting to happen, creating a compelling reason for a recess appointment, followed by permanent confirmation of the recess appointee. The Supreme Court does not need to be divided four-four on matters that might adjudicate a presidential election, not for one second longer than it needs to be.

The $88 Trillion World Economy in One Chart

from Zero Hedge

The global economy can seem like an abstract concept, yet, as Visual Capitalist’s Iman Ghosh notes, it influences our everyday lives in both obvious and subtle ways. Nowhere is this clearer than in the current economic state amid the throes of the pandemic.

This voronoi-style visualization from HowMuch relies on gross domestic product (GDP) data from the World Bank to paint a picture of the global economy – which crested $87.8 trillion in 2019.

Editor’s note: Annual data on economic output is a lagging indicator, and is released the following year by organizations such as the World Bank. The figures in this diagram provide a snapshot of the global economy in 2019, but do not necessarily represent the impact of recent developments such as COVID-19.

The Gathering Super Tantrum

by Robert Gore
Straight Line Logic

It’s time for a divorce.

Russiagate, impeachment, the coronavirus power grab, riots, overhyped Trump “scandals” that came and went, and nonstop venom, vitriol, and vituperation come together under this label: the Continuing Tantrum. The presidential election is less than two months away, and we’re being promised the tantrum to end all tantrums, a Super Tantrum, if the harpy and the dotard don’t win.

Children don’t have a shadowy cabal and mainstream political, business, and media figures encouraging (and funding) their tantrums. Unlike Continuing Tantrum partisans, children who tantrum can be spanked or put in time out, they don’t burn down cities or launch coups, and some of them grow up.

Silver Crashes Some More

by Keith Weiner
Sprott Money

A few days ago, we wrote about a big silver crash. The price dropped around 7.5%.

And the basis dropped from around 2% to 0.6%. At the end, we said.

“The key question is: what is the follow-through? If the price stays down and the basis goes back up, that will be a bearish signal. If the basis stays down, that means the silver market is markedly tighter at $24.50 than it was at $26.75.”

Which this brings us to yesterday’s silver dive. Here’s the graph of the day’s action.

DOJ Investigating How FBI Handled Allegations of Clinton Foundation Corruption

by Damjan Tutarkov
LaCorte News

U.S. Attorney John Durham is reportedly investigating allegations of corruption within the Clinton Foundation, according to a new report by The New York Times.

The inquiry: Durham has been appointed by Justice Department (DOJ) Attorney General William Barr to look into the origins of the FBI’s “Crossfire Hurricane” probe that investigated the debunked allegations of collusion between President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

But Durham appears to have broadened the scope of the probe to inquire about the Obama-era FBI’s handling of allegations of political corruption within the Clinton Foundation.

The Times, which flat out dismissed Durham’s probe as “politically charged” in the first paragraph, cited “people familiar with the matter” as saying that Durham has asked for documents and interviews “about how federal law enforcement officials handled an investigation around the same time into allegations of political corruption at the Clinton Foundation.”

Abenomics: Big Debts with Nothing to Show for It

by Andrew Moran
Mises.org

Reaganomics, Clintonomics, Obamanomics, and Trumponomics. Abenomics is an economic philosophy named after Prime Minister Abe. It is a multipronged strategy that involves increasing Japan’s money supply, enhancing government spending, and reforming the world’s third-largest economy to make it more competitive. He launched Abenomics once he started his second term in December 2012, announcing that his government would “implement bold monetary policy, flexible fiscal policy and a growth strategy that encourages private investment, and with these three pillars, achieve results.” In other words, Abe promised to reverse the country’s stagnation and supercharge Japan. But what did he achieve after eight years as head of state?
