...The Volcker Rule was meant to serve as a substitute for full restoration of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 which made it illegal for banks holding Federally-insured deposits to also speculate in stocks or own stock trading firms. The Glass-Steagall Act kept the U.S. financial system safe for 66 years until its repeal in 1999 under the Wall Street-friendly Clinton administration. It took just nine years after the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act for Wall Street to blow itself up in a replay of 1929. Going into the crisis of 2008, the biggest speculating investment banks on Wall Street had merged with the largest Federally-insured commercial banks in the U.S. – a clear recipe for disaster which remains as dangerous today as it was in 2008.
Volcker’s assessment of how dangerous the commercial bank/investment bank model had become was borne out by the findings of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission’s official report and dozens of other research findings. Just last year the nonprofit, Americans for Financial Reform, assessed the situation like this:...http://wallstreetonparade.com/2019/08/goldman-sachs-and-jpmorgan-have-flagrantly-flaunted-the-volcker-rule-for-nine-years-now-its-to-be-gutted-by-federal-regulators/

Hackers Could Steal Personal Info By “Listening” To Your Keyboard, Alarming Study Finds
As if you needed another cybersecurity issue to worry about, a team of researchers at Southern Methodist University have discovered that it is quite possible for hackers to use your smartphone’s sensor to intercept the sound of your keyboard typing. After picking up these sound waves, a skilled hacker could potentially analyze and decipher which keys were struck and piece together the words being typed. Even in a loud and crowded room filled with people talking amongst each other and typing, researchers say they were able to capture and decode the majority of what was being typed... https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/hackers-could-steal-personal-info-by-listening-to-your-keyboard-alarming-study-finds.html
...Wall Street hated the Volcker Rule so much that it made sure the rule never came into being. It has stonewalled the implementation of the rule for nine years and one month. Now the rule has been stripped of all of its meaningful components. The gutting of the Volcker Rule was snuck through in the dog days of summer as families are busy getting kids ready to return to school. Five years ago, as families were busy preparing for the Christmas holidays, Citigroup’s lobbyists pushed through the repeal of the second most important aspect of Dodd-Frank. It was called the “push-out” rule which would have forced banks to move their tens of trillions of dollars in derivatives out of the Federally-insured bank unit into another unit that could be placed into bankruptcy or wound-down in the event of insolvency. By keeping these dangerous derivatives in the Federally-insured bank, Wall Street effectively guaranteed itself another bailout if it blew up the U.S. economy again... http://wallstreetonparade.com/2019/08/r-i-p-dodd-frank-wall-street-is-unleashed-again/

Ron Paul: Trump Administration Wants Permanent Repeal of the 4th Amendment (LOOK)
Departing Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats sent Congress a letter requesting that several features of the misnamed USA FREEDOM Act be made permanent, allowing the US government to spy in Americans in perpetuity. The Trump Administration wants to be able to intercept phone calls and text messages as well as snoop into business records and other violations of the Fourth Amendment. The FREEDOM Act was passed after Ed Snowden revealed that the NSA was illegally spying on American citizens. Falsely advertised as “reform,” the replacement bill only made “legal” the illegality of the PATRIOT Act. Will Americans find the will to oppose this creeping tyranny?https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=4&v=k7s910X6J7Y

Greg Hunter: Trump at War with New World Order – Alex Newman
Journalist Alex Newman says President Trump is at war with the Deep State, New World Order globalists that want to destroy America. Are the forces of good making headway against the forces of evil? Newman explains, “I think we are. I think the election of Donald Trump shows how much headway we have made in this battle. Donald Trump ran on an anti-globalist platform. He made fun of the UN and said it was no friend of freedom. He talked about it as if it was a dictators’ club, and it is. He talked about the man-made global warming hoax being a hoax by the communist Chinese. He talked about the need to shrink government. He talked about the need to secure the border. These are all policy positions that are abhorrent to the New World Order crowd. Those are the ones who want to abolish nations and get rid of private property rights, at least for us and not for themselves. They want to undermine the family unit. The want to undermine marriage. So, Trump really ran on a pro-America and a pro-freedom platform, and despite all of the media being opposed to him, he won! . . . I think the globalists are a little bit nervous, in fact, maybe a lot nervous. . . . They realize that the American people have the will and the means to resist this totalitarian agenda. I think that frightens them.”
The Deep State has had help from big tech from the beginning. Newman contends, “A lot of these big technology companies, and people don’t realize this, they have been tied to the Deep State and the establishment from day one. DARPA has been involved in financing some of these companies. . . . Now we know that Google has been trying to interfere with our elections. Google has been manipulating our search engine results. We know this from documents that have come out. If you go to Project Veritas, you can read these documents for yourself. You can hear the testimony of people who have come out of these corrupt companies. We have a very serious problem on our hands, and I am delighted to know that Donald Trump is looking into this.”
Newman’s biggest fear is the New World Order tanking the global economy to try to tarnish Donald Trump before the 2020 Presidential Election. Newman says, “We may see the globalists try to crash the economy, whether that be pulling the rug out from under the stock market or whether that be trying to crash the value of the dollar. Then using that to demonize President Trump and all of his supporters and to basically say see what happens when you defy globalism. See what happens when you try to implement tariffs so the communist Chinese don’t rip you off. You end up blowing up your own economy. They are going to say this is all Trump’s fault and the fault of the people who voted for him. I think this is a very real possibility. . . . If they crash the economy, Trump can use his bully pulpit to explain what is really going on. . . . We are not dealing with people we have a difference of opinion with. We are dealing with people who are nefarious and people with evil intention who would very much like to destroy liberty and very much like to destroy our country and merge it into a global system with them at the top. . . . We are dealing with people who are absolutely evil and who would not hesitate to do any immoral or illegal thing if they thought it would advance their agenda and if they knew they would not get caught and not get into trouble.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=Xuqqyhh8Xfw
Beijing is on track to have one CCTV camera for nearly every two people as the Communist Party pushes for Big-Brother-style state surveillance. The country's 1.4 billion population are set to be carefully watched by 626 million street monitors - many having facial-recognition functions - as early as next year, a new study has revealed.
CA High School Becomes Largest American Public School to Ban Phones and Kids Dig It
Reports about phone bans in schools in the U.S. and around the world aren’t new, and many of the comments posted with this news story mention that. It’s still good news and many of the kids interviewed at this school seem to be embracing as well as thriving from the new policy.
Even better – banning phones reduces kids’ exposure to harmful radiation. American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts have warned that children are more vulnerable to exposure than adults. In fact, no safe level of exposure has even been determined for children or pregnant women. This is why many health experts, parents and teachers in the U.S. and around the world have also been trying to get schools to replace WiFi with wired internet (see 1, 2). A hospital in Cyprus has also taken action to reduce pediatric patients’ exposure. Exposure to cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation isn’t only about increased cancer risk. It can cause symptoms and illnesses in children, adults – even pets. This is referred to as Microwave Sickness. American embassy workers have reported experiencing this in both Cuba and China... https://www.activistpost.com/2019/08/ca-high-school-becomes-largest-american-public-school-to-ban-phones-and-kids-dig-it.html
In a move that is being hailed as a step toward ending prohibitionist policies and Mexico’s bloody “war on drugs,” a judge in Mexico City has ruled that two people are allowed to legally use cocaine on the basis that adults should enjoy the fundamental right to recreationally ingest the substance for personal use.
