Leftist Bill Maher: “Learn To Live With Each Other Or There Will Be Blood!”

Leftist Bill Maher: “Learn To Live With Each Other Or There Will Be Blood!” Authored by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com, Left-leaning HBO host Bill Maher said that he believes the divisiveness among Americans could potentially spark another civil war. The comedian and staunch critic of President Trump made the declaration on his latest HBO show Friday. “Lately we’ve been hearing more and more about a second Civil War, which sounds impossible in this modern affluent country. It is not,” said the “Real Time with Bill Maher”. Maher is not the first person to predict a civil war due to the political discourse in American culture. President Donald Trump’s spiritual adviser Pastor Robert Jeffress earlier rebuked by liberal critics for an eerily similar prediction. ….If the Democrats are successful in removing the President from office (which they will never be), it will cause a Civil War like fracture in this Nation from which our Country will never heal.” Pastor Robert Jeffress, @FoxNews — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2019 The liberal outrage from this Tweet was massive. Maher seems to have faced no such backlash for his comments. However, the 63-year-old has been among the president’s most vocal critics on cable television since before Trump even entered the White House. He has regularly compared him to authoritarian dictators, and he has argued repeatedly that he does not believe  Trump will...

“I Was Wrong. And I Am Sorry”: Bloomberg Apologizes To Black Megachurch For ‘Stop And Frisk’

“I Was Wrong. And I Am Sorry”: Bloomberg Apologizes To Black Megachurch For ‘Stop And Frisk’ As Michael Bloomberg weighs a bid for the White House next year, the former New York mayor told the congregation at a ‘black megachurch’ on Sunday that he’s sorry for his support of the city’s controversial “stop-and-frisk” program which targeted a disproportionate number of blacks and Latinos. “I was wrong. And I am sorry,” Bloomberg said at the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, pandering to the black vote. In 2013, a federal judge who declared the program unconstitutional found that nearly 90% of those stopped hadn’t done anything illegal, while a 2018 Equal Justice Initiative report revealed that the city’s abandonment of the tactic had no influence on crime rates, according to Rolling Stone. Bloomberg notably supported the practice after the ruling. “Over time [i.e. the last few years, or weeks], I’ve come to understand something that I long struggled to admit to myself: I got something important wrong. I got something important really wrong. I didn’t understand back then the full impact that stops were having on the black and Latino communities. I was totally focused on saving lives, but as we know, good intentions aren’t good enough,” he added. In 2011, the year with the most stop-and-frisks, 685,724 NYPD stops were recorded. Of those, 88% were innocent, while 87% were black...

Mauldin: China’s Grand Plan To Take Over The World

Mauldin: China’s Grand Plan To Take Over The World Authored by John Mauldin via MauldinEconomics.com, When the US and ultimately the rest of the Western world began to engage China, resulting in China finally being allowed into the World Trade Organization in the early 2000s, no one really expected the outcomes we see today. There is no simple disengagement path, given the scope of economic and legal entanglements. This isn’t a “trade” we can simply walk away from. But it is also one that, if allowed to continue in its current form, could lead to a loss of personal freedom for Western civilization. It really is that much of an existential question. Doing nothing isn’t an especially good option because, like it or not, the world is becoming something quite different than we expected just a few years ago – not just technologically, but geopolitically and socially. China and the West Let’s begin with how we got here. My generation came of age during the Cold War. China was a huge, impoverished odd duck in those years. In the late 1970s, China began slowly opening to the West. Change unfolded gradually but by the 1990s, serious people wanted to bring China into the modern world, and China wanted to join it. Understand that China’s total GDP in 1980 was under $90 billion in current dollars. Today, it is over...

Netherlands Headed For Unprecedented Crisis: Millions Of Retirees Face Pensions Cuts Thanks To The ECB

Netherlands Headed For Unprecedented Crisis: Millions Of Retirees Face Pensions Cuts Thanks To The ECB When one thinks of pensions crisis, the state of Illinois – with its woefully underfunded retirement system which issues bonds just to fund its existing pension benefits – usually comes to mind. Which is why it is surprising that the first state that may suffer substantial pension cuts is one that actually has one of the world’s best-funded, and most generous, pension systems. According to the FT, millions of Dutch pensioners are facing material cuts to their retirement income for the first time next year as the Dutch government scrambles to avert a crisis to the country’s €1.6 trillion pension system. And while a last minute intervention by the government may avoid significant cuts to pensions next year – and a revolt by trade unions –  if only temporarily, the world finds itself transfixed by the problems facing the Dutch retirement system as it provides an early indication of a wider global pensions funding shortfall, not to mention potential mass unrest once retirees across some of the world’s wealthiest nations suddenly finds themselves with facing haircuts to what they previously believed were unalterable retirement incomes. At the core of the Dutch cash crunch is the ECB’s negative interest rate policy, which has sent bond yields to record negative territory across the eurozone, and crippled...
