Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton plans to start her own TV show in order to “lead” the anti-Trump resistance. A Clinton insider said “she’s convinced she’d get fabulous ratings.”
Though she has largely faded from public prominence after her “crushing” defeat last November, Hillary Clinton is determined “not to fade into the background,” according to Clinton insiders. Apparently unable to register the fact that she was arguably the most unpopular and unelectable presidential candidate of all time, Clinton is already plotting her come-back for a run in the 2020 presidential election. According to Clinton insiders who spoke to best-selling author Ed Klein, Clinton has “been talking very seriously about the idea of having her own television show.”
In discussing what such a show would entail, Clinton has suggested that she would host the program, where she would “discuss the issues of the day from a progressive point of view, have top guests, interview world leaders and progressive thinkers.” Klein’s source further asserted that Clinton is “convinced she’d get fabulous ratings in a political climate where there’s so much anger in Democratic circles over Donald Trump’s election.”
However, it appears that Clinton’s expectations for her return to the limelight are out-of-touch with reality, not unlike her failed presidential campaign. Just over the weekend, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) selected Tom Perez as its new chairman. Perez, who conspired to boost Clinton over Sanders in the 2016 primary, is widely disliked by the more progressive elements of the party, spurring many Democrats to openly discuss their desire to abandon the party entirely over Perez’s appointment. The “Bernie Sanders wing” of the party is both influential and sizable, yet establishment Democrats – Clinton included – continue to avoid facing the reality of the situation.
Though Clinton’s TV show has yet to materialize, she is already trying to make her public comeback on the heels of Perez’s ascension to the top position in the DNC. A video released over the weekend shows Clinton posturing herself as the face of the anti-Trump resistance and as the “acknowledged leader-in-exile of her party.”
In the video, Clinton states:
We as Democrats must move forward with courage, confidence and activism, and stay focused on the elections we must win this year and next.
Let resistance plus persistence equal progress for our party and our country.
…Keep fighting and keep the faith… and I’ll be right there with you every step of the way.
We’ll see soon enough if Clinton’s efforts will allow her to build a meaningful following or if popular support for her as a candidate will attract the same size crowds as her 2016 primary campaign. History suggests that the latter is much more likely, no matter how well-produced or well-publicized her TV show may be.

(Natural News) Since last July, a total of 119 young girls and women in Japan have filed lawsuits against both the Japanese government and the two manufacturers of vaccines for human papillomavirus (HPV), GlaxoSmithKline PLC (GSK) and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. According to the suits, the companies’ respective HPV vaccines, Cervarix and Gardasil, caused the women to suffer serious side effects, for which they are now seeking damages.Some of the latest suits include 28 cases in which women ranging in age from 15 to 22 developed major health conditions like chronic pain all over their bodies, impaired mobility, severe menstrual pain, and other problems following the series of vaccines. These women are suing not only the vaccine manufacturers for producing the deadly jabs, but also the Japanese government for approving them without proper vetting.
One young woman by the name of Erina Sonoda, a 20-year-old college student, told The Japan Times (JT) that she developed horrible menstrual pains following her second vaccination with Cervarix, which is administered as three separate jabs. Sonoda went through with her third vaccination despite the menstrual problems, and following this last course developed pains throughout the rest of her body, for which she now has difficulty walking without a cane, and often has to use a wheelchair.
“I felt acute pain as if someone was squashing my internal organs … Such conditions have only gotten worse,” Sonoda told a court while sitting in her wheelchair. Sonoda is seeking the U.S. equivalent of about $134,000 as compensation for her injuries. “I received the shots because the government recommended it. I want the government to take seriously its responsibility for causing us (to suffer from) such symptoms.”
Many others like Sonoda have suffered similar problems after getting HPV vaccinations, including more than 100 other plaintiffs throughout Japan who say their lives have never been the same since following the government’s advice. Rather than obtain the protection against cervical cancer that they were promised, many of these women are now permanently injured and in need of constant medical care.
The Japanese government, GSK, and Merck all deny that there is any causal link between HPV vaccines and serious side effects, hence their efforts to have the compensation claims denied. These entities claim that no scientific evidence exists to show any dangers from HPV vaccines, but tell that to the nearly 3,000 women throughout Japan who have reported serious side effects since the government first started recommending the vaccines back in April 2013. Two months later, the government stopped recommending HPV vaccines following a spate of controversy from major reported side effects.
Japan’s Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry openly admits that some 2,945 individuals have reported side effects from HPV vaccines over the past four some-odd years. At the same time, the ministry says that side effects from the vaccines are rare, and that the women who claim to have been injured by them must have been injured by something else.
Back in 2016, it was reported that vaccination rates for HPV in Japan plummeted from about 70 percent to a mere one percent after controversy over the vaccine’s safety went mainstream around June 2013. When the Japanese public found out that their government was using their tax dollars to support the push for more women to get vaccinated for HPV, the outcry that ensued was enough to get the program stopped in a matter of weeks. HPV vaccines are still offered to women in Japan, but the government no longer officially recommends them.

Catherine Austin Fitts told Greg Hunter that Wall Street stole $50 trillion from us. So what do you think will happen when the Dollar Dies and tens of millions of people come demanding their pensions and savings?
When I was still in high school, I predicted the rise of the National Security State. I based my analysis on the fact that Wall Street was robbing us blind. The Bankers needed an all powerful central government in Washington to make us sit down and shut up. In the second phase of this operation the people who owned the government in Washington intensified things by blowing up buildings with Americans inside. That happened in 1993, 1995 and 2001. The bought and paid for Congress through the Patriot Act and through laws added to the National Defense Appropriation Acts of recent years have gutted the Bill of Rights. It is now lawful to arrest, torture and hold American citizens without trial and without a legal defense. The people who own the government can legally kill you.
We are headed into the worst Financial Crisis in modern history. It will be far worse than 1933. Only 3 million Americans starved to death in the 1930s. This will be worse than that. The Bankers have to make even more drastic plans so you will not be able to Say No.
In the past a Financial Crisis meant war.But this time I do not believe the American military will allow WW III. The US and Russia militaries set up direct links in 2011 to avoid a war. Besides, the US cannot fight a war and win. Remember that list of 7 nations General Clark said the Pentagon was told to invade? The US has some troops in Syria but could never invade Lebanon and take on Hezbollah. And forget a direct assault on Iran. That is beyond our ability. We could start a thermonuclear war against Tehran and Beirut but such a war would spread.
When I was in high school, I knew we would never have a nuclear war. Why? Because H bombs kill rich people and that is very bad. But starvation rids us of the poor and that is s very good weapon from the Banker’s point of view.
The Bankers are planning a different kind of war.
I think the Trump administration by its appointments has prepared the way for a Civil War. Trump has 3 generals in key positions including Homeland Security. He has a man at the CIA who graduated first in his class from West Point and served for 5 years as a tank commander.
But Trump has others in his admin who will limit his Civil War responses. This is from Bloomberg:
Former Goldman Sachs partner Steven Mnuchin served as Trump’s national finance chairman and is now Trump’s nominee for U.S. Treasury secretary. Trump has also tapped Goldman Sachs President (and the bank’s de facto No. 2) Gary Cohn to be his top economic adviser in the White House. Other Goldman alums in Trump’s inner circle include Anthony Scaramucci, a former Goldman banker and a member of the Trump transition team’s executive committee, as well as Steve Bannon, Trump’s campaign manager. After eight years as the face of Wall Street greed and the target of public scorn, the bankers at Goldman Sachs can be cheerful again.
Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert reported that Goldman has moved its Hedge operations from London to New York because they now feel free to commit unlimited fraud in the US.
Trump is weighed down by other entrenched interests so there is little he can do without being assassinated.
But he is currently fighting back against the media. And his Attorney General Sessions will lead the resistance by investigation human trafficking which will include pedophilia. That and the investigations into the Clinton Foundation will take down the Establishment and provide Trump with more room to maneuver.
But all that Good Will Trump has been gaining since election day will go out the window when the Dollar Dies. The Bankers deliberately put America into a trap with No Exit. They used trade deals like NAFTA to send millions of jobs overseas.
The Walrasian economists determined that Americans were paid higher wages than Europeans because we had abundant natural resources like coal, oil, iron and timber. We extracted those resources and added value with highly skilled labor. Thus we earned a third more than Europeans doing the same work. But those same Walrasians told us that we would have to cut wages as soon as we raised our population above 150 million and had to import natural resources. Does anyone remember what the price of a barrel of oil was in 1970 when we had 130 million fewer people?
The Bankers decided to print dollars to prop up the standard of living they had been attacking. They added government workers through deficit financing. Today we have 30.6 million federal, state and local government workers if you count contractors. And we print dollars to buy cars, electronics, clothes, oil and everything else by giving people overseas even more IOU nothing Federal Reserve Notes. We also temporarily pay the wages and retirement benefits of government workers with that same soon to be worthless green paper.
James Rickards has been advising the CIA and the Pentagon since 2000. He has said we are in a Currency War. When the Dollar Dies, we can buy imports with gold or with our food. He said the price of imported goods will rise 500% on the day after the Dollar is no longer an International Reserve currency. The corollary is that foreigners will see American food as a bargain and will clear out the shelves in our grocery stores.
That is when the Nationwide Food Riots begin.
Now we can see the real possibility of a Civil War and even Race Riots as whites, blacks and Hispanics battle for food.
I used the term Limited Hang Out Civil War. Perhaps I should explain. The majority of people believe the government lied to us about both the JFK assassination and 911. A Limited Hangout position on 911 is that Bush or rather Cheney and Rumsfeld let it happen. They knew it was coming but did nothing to stop it. Norm Mineta told us Rumsfeld was told every few minutes that a plane was approaching the Pentagon but he did not let an interceptor take it down.
The truth of 911 is this: The North and South Towers had 47 central core steel columns and 236 perimeter columns for a total of 283. For the buildings to fall straight down at nearly free fall speed all 283 connections from the columns to each of the 110 floors had to be cut within a second of each other. Keeping in mind open air fires cannot reach half of the temperature required to melt steel, how do you explain (2 X 110 X 283) 62,260 connections in the two Towers all being severed simultaneously by an office fire? Isn’t this a definition of a controlled demolition?
So Towers 1, 2 and 7 were taken down by controlled demolitions. To do that you need keys to the buildings and the permission of management. The two Jewish men who held the lease did not go to work on 911. Larry Silverstein’s two adult children did not go to work. What are the odds? Odigo instant messaging service sent out an alert in Hebrew telling Israelis to stay away from the World Trade Center on 911. No such message was sent out in English for either Jewish Americans or Gentiles who worked in the Towers.
A Limited Hang Out Civil War is something of a misnomer. When a Civil War or a Race war starts, it will not be limited. What a Limited Hang Out Civil War means is that the Bankers and the media they own will try to keep control of the narrative.
Their problem is that all they can offer is a narrative. Bankers cannot offer a solution to the coming Financial Collapse because they would lose the source of their wealth which is to legally rob us of ours.
A Depression is a period in time when Unpaid Debts are cancelled en masse. There are 3 ways to cancel Unpayable Debts. The first is Hyperinflation. The Wiemar Republic tried that in 1923. If you raise prices 100,000%, you do make your debts appear to be smaller. That did not work out well. Or you can make your debts disappear either in bankruptcy court or in farm and home mortgage foreclosures. America tried that in 1933 with bad results. The Money Supply contracted by a third which only made things worse.
We will have martial law but, as I said, that will fail without a workable and painless cure to the Depression. The ancient kings of Babylon and Sumer used Debt Cancellation to end a Depression. The Bible Writers called it the Jubilee. Debt Cancellation is the Third solution to a Depression. It is the only peaceful and painless way out of our dire circumstances.
The military could use martial law to arrest the Bankers and to seize their assets to fund Debt Cancellation. We should issue a non-interest bearing currency like Lincoln’s Greenbacks or the Bradbury pound. We also should repeal fractional reserve banking.
Or the military can let rioters kill millions who survive the Great Starvation. And then let the Bankers release a series of plagues. They would need to make sure everyone over fifty who would want to collect a pension died because the Bankers stole everything. The Bankers need to reduce world population below a billion which was was the Foundation studies they paid for had said was desirable.
Debt Cancellation is my favored solution to a Depression. You can read about it here:

Goldman Is Back on Top in the Trump Administration
February 27, 2017
Many have expressed their shock and horror that the a ‘documentary’ on the White Helmets organisation has won the Oscar for Best Documentary.
The White Helmets purports to be an aid organisation but has been widely discredited as such. What is more, the organisation has been exposed as a handsomely funded western propaganda tool. Even worse, the White Helmets have been exposed as actively supporting (both materially and in terms of PR) the criminal acts of groups like Al-Qaeda/Al-Nusra. The Syrian government which considers the group a terrorist organisation has been totally vindicated. The UN consequently do not recognise the White Hemlets as any sort of aid agency.
Why then did the Hollywood elite honour such a dangerous group? One could say, with a great deal of truth, that the Hollywood elite are out of touch, bordering on the mad, but there is a far more devious reason behind the awarding of a terrorist group.
The truth of the matter is that the US government, typically through the CIA, has for years influenced US news media, artistic elite and Hollywood, using both willing and unwilling accomplices to propagandise a pro-deep state narrative.
In the 1950s, the young CIA didn’t waste time in this respect. The CIA’s Operation Mockingbird was a CIA initiative wherein US journalists at organisations like the New York Times and CBS were fed propaganda stories to send out to their then virtually monopolised share of American readers and viewers.
Many journalists were paid by the CIA to promote such stories. In other cases, naive journalists were simply given the information and put it out as real news, when in fact it was what today we would call ‘fake news’.
But the CIA didn’t limit their activities to media. The so-called Congress for Cultural Freedom funded artistic performances, publications and exhibitions designed to promote the CIA’s version of the ‘American way’, even though ironically, much of the work promoted was overwhelmingly rejected by Middle America.
The CIA supported all sorts of causes and art forms that many in America found anathema to traditional conservative tastes, ranging from the Abstract Expressionist movement in painting to radical feminism.
Much of the CIA’s meddling in media and creative industries was kept under wraps until the 1970s when many in Congress began questioning the modus operandi of the CIA in the aftermath of the Watergate scandal. The full extent of Operation Mockingbird was not however fully revealed until pertinent information became declassified in 2007.
Much has been reported of so-called Hollywood blacklists against real and alleged communists at the height of the McCarthy era, but little in the mainstream media has been said of the CIA’s influence on Hollywood.
In 2012, much of the CIA’s influence on Hollywood in the post Cold War era was laid bear in a book by Tricia Jenkins called The CIA in Hollywood: How the Agency Shapes Film and Television.
Whilst many thought the era of big CIA would diminish with the end of the Cold War, Jenkins’s book has demonstrated that such ties continue. The rapid expansion of the surveillance state under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama and the current deep state war on alternative media, has only entrenched the position of portions of the US government in actively trying to influence the narratives that audiences often ignorantly consume.
The media-industrial complex/media-entertainment complex is not a conspiracy theory. The trail of influence and money which both directly and indirectly weighs on the content put out by Hollywood and the US mainstream media is very real. It is both historical fact and sadly it is also part of the present reality.
It is for this reason alone that no one should be surprised that Al-Qaeda’s helpers, the White Helmets won an Oscar. What still is more surprising is that many in America do not question why the terrorist organisation blamed for the 9-11 attacks is now lionised as a sound alternative to the secular government of Syria.
Canadian banking results haven’t just been good, they’ve been spectacular. Can the trend continue or are banks being too greedy?
By Don Pittis
Mar 01, 2017
The profits announced by Canada’s banks over the last week have been nothing less than astounding.
Whether the banks can keep on doing well matters to all Canadians, but are they being greedy?
Yesterday the Bank of Montreal said it had made about $1.5 billion in three months.
That may be hard to put in context until you hear that it is an increase in profit of nearly 40 per cent from the same period last year and dramatically higher than stock watchers had been expecting.
The big banks tend to take turns being the biggest winner in any given year, and some take brief stumbles, but year after year Canadian banks have been persistent money machines.
After such a long period of success, it is reasonable to ask how long the banking boom can last.
There are a number of reasons why it matters.
RBC is the largest component in nearly every Canadian retirement fund and mutual fund portfolio.
A glance at the Canadian stocks in the Canada Pension Plan portfolio show the banks as the biggest holdings.
If personal greed isn’t enough to convince you, there are at least two more reasons to wish the banks well. One is that like mining, banking is one of Canada’s globally acknowledged successes.
Our banks have stakes in other countries around the world, from RBC’s banker to the stars serving the international one per cent, to Scotia’s presence in the Caribbean and Latin America. Rather than softwood or oil or copper, they export services.
The other reason to be happy about the success of banks is that they are an indicator of Canada’s economic health. If banking is sick, watch out for your job.
There are some good reasons why Canadian banking is ready to keep booming, including an expected rise in interest rates. In general, retail banks do well when rates go up.
“Absolutely, because banks’ business model is to have the interest rate difference between the deposit rate and the lending rate, and when the overall interest rate is higher there is just more room to make a profit,” says Kai Li, finance professor at UBC’s Sauder School of business.
Li says recent reports that international investors were shorting Canadian banks — the financial equivalent of betting the shares would fall — were mostly based on fears of non-performing loans in Canada’s oil and gas industry as oil prices crashed from $100 US in 2014 to less than $30 a barrel last year.
Now that oil prices are back above $50, the danger of wholesale defaults on huge portfolios of energy loans no longer hangs over the banks, says Li.
A remaining hazard for banks’ finances, says Li, is “the risk on their mortgage portfolio,” something the banks seem to be taking seriously.
This month BMO issued a stern warning of a bubble in Toronto area real estate. In an interview with the Financial Post, Royal Bank CEO Dave McKay added his own warning, calling the market unsustainable and in need of regulation.
Because of CMHC mortgage insurance, the banks are sheltered by the taxpayers from the brunt of any property decline, but as we saw in the U.S., when a property bubble pops, the entire economy goes sour.
Sofia Johan sold her property in the United States just before the 2007 bubble popped and bought here in Canada. Now a banking regulation expert at York University’s Schulich School of Business, Johan says such a meltdown would hit the Canadian economy hard.
However, she thinks Canadian banks have the depth and diversity to withstand a property crash better than the U.S. banks did.
In the near term, Johan says, Canadian banks stand to benefit financially as the Trump administration cuts banking regulation, “if they act in the correct manner, i.e., not taking on too much risk.”
She worries cuts to regulation could start a new financial frenzy that could end badly. That would be a risk for Canadian banks even if they don’t participate in the worst excesses.
Contrarian market watcher Benj Gallander, president of Contra the Heard, says we have returned to “a pretty greedy time” in banking right now.
“They should be … loyal to their employees,” he said.
“When they are making so much money, I think what they should be looking to do is pay down some of their debt so that when the hard times really hit, things will be more stable.”
