Almost There,

Epstein and the Explosive Crisis of the Deep State, Charles Hugh Smith 
(So why now, with the Epstein case? Deep and pervasive moral corruption is a chink in the armor of  the globalist-neocon camp, so useful in this elite power struggle. Returning to the government that Lincoln served is not on the table...)
The hidden conflicts within the Deep State are emerging, and the resulting crisis will be explosive. Remember, the housecleaning must be public or the legitimacy of the state will go over the cliff. If the Deep State wants to retain its power, it must root out the corrupt degenerates before they bring down the entire rotten structure.

​ ​FBI agents who cracked open a safe in Jeffrey Epstein's Manhattan mansion discovered "piles of cash," dozens of diamonds and an expired passport from the 1980s under a different name that listed his residence as Saudi Arabia, according to the Daily Beast - which notes that it is unclear whether this is the same safe that contained nude or semi-nude photographs believed to be of underage girls.
​ ​"The passport was issued in the name of a foreign country, it was issued in the 1980s, it is expired, it shows a picture of Jeffrey Epstein, and another name," said Assistant US Attorney Alex Rossmiller.
​ ​It's also a different safe than the one allegedly in an 'off-limits' room on his private island in the Caribbean.

The Clintons are real quiet recently. Bill tweeted a little memorial to Ross Perot, who swung the 1992 election his way, on 7/9/19. Hillary made a Trump=racist tweet a few days ago. Rumor is they are bugging out to their Irish flat, which I had a hard time verifying the existence of.
Clinton tees up his dream flat in Ireland

​ ​Bill Clinton yesterday united his two loves, Ireland and golf, by buying a two-bedroom apartment that overlooks a Ryder Cup venue.
​ ​The property comes with full membership for two to the prestigious Kildare Hotel and Country Club - better known as the K Club - 30 miles south-west of Dublin where an 18-hole round costs £190 and first year membership is £60,000.
​ ​The former American president, who has called Ireland his second home, struck a deal with an estate agent friend for an £850,000 flat while playing golf in Northern Ireland last weekend.  

Jim Kunstler:
 Don’t hold your breath waiting for a coherent pre-election debate about the mother-of-all-issues facing this republic, namely, that we can’t afford the living arrangements Americans think of as “normal” anymore. This quandary has stalked us since the millennium turned. It thunders through all the activities of daily life, and the tensions emanating from it are so agonizing and difficult to face that our politics have deflected off into the kind of hysteria spawned by bad dreams...  
​ ​That’s the main issue of our time. We’re faced with the imminent and rather drastic re-organization of everyday life in America without oil. It should be reasonable to assume that the process will be disorderly, and the longer we ignore it, the more disorderly it will be. Granted, it is a tall order for politicians to talk about things this scary. The hard truth is that intelligent responses to this quandary would require heroic effort and painful change — and would probably be emotionally unacceptable to voters.  

​If you just change the definition of "GDP" you can make a recession into the longest recovery in American history! The blue line is the old definition.
Oops. Worse than pathetic. Using consistent accounting through time, we discover we have actually been in receding GDP (recession) since 2000 with the exception of one little bump in 2004.  

While politicians, media and commentators strut the world stage crying ‘press freedom’ an actual journalist from Australia rots in a British prison for doing his job. Clinical psychologist Dr Lissa Johnson weighs in with the science behind why we stay silent.  ​...
​Collateral Murder post:  ​  
 For reporting this event, and for documenting tens of thousands of other civilian killings like it, by US forces and US authorities, it is Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning who sit in jail. Neither of them charged with harming a living soul. Both of them tortured. For other people’s crimes.

Heads-I-win, tails-you-lose, see?​  
Turkey invaded Cyprus on Nixon and Kissinger's watch and still wants the rest of it. Turkey has a big military, and there is gas, and oil...​
​ ​Turkey will continue drilling for gas in waters off Cyprus if the internationally recognized Greek Cypriot government does not accept a cooperation proposal put forward by Turkish Cypriots, Ankara’s foreign minister has said. 

​Turkish navy is out in force, daring the EU to stand up. Rumor is the hit a bonanza already.
​ Perhaps to be expected, Turkey's response to yesterday's EU announcement of impending economic and political sanctions to be brought against Ankara has been to swiftly and immediately double down on drilling, while dismissing the crisis as "not serious". Turkey has now sent its fourth oil and gas exploration ship to the eastern Mediterranean after European leaders condemned its drilling in EU-member Cyprus' territorial waters.

 The true cost of cheap, unhealthy food is a spiralling public health crisis and environmental destruction, according to a high-level commission. It said the UK’s food and farming system must be radically transformed and become sustainable within 10 years.
