...It looks like we might have another blow off top in the works. The tech sector was rampaging higher today. When in doubt break glass and recycle the last bubble. Let's see how much more these jokers can squeeze out of this. Gold and silver were off quite a bit in the morning, but managed to gather most of it back into the close. The existing deadline for Brexit is in about 8 days, although there is quite a bit of talk about the EU granting a brief extension. PM Theresa May was blaming Speaker Bercow for her inability to stage a third vote, which she assured the Europeans that would have passed. Uh huh. https://jessescrossroadscafe.blogspot.com/2019/03
It just became easier for employers to dump retirees' pensions
Traditional pensions are disappearing in America, and the federal government just made it easier for employers to get rid of them. With no fanfare in early March, the Treasury Department issued a notice that allows employers to buy out current retirees from their pensions with a one-time lump sum payment. The decision reverses Obama-era guidance, issued in 2015, that had effectively banned the practice after officials determined that lump-sum payments often shortchanged seniors. Now, advocates for the elderly worry that millions of people receiving monthly pension checks could be at risk. "Permitting plans — for their own financial benefit — to replace joint and survivor or other annuities with lump-sum payments will reduce the retirement security of both workers and their spouses," AARP Legislative Counsel David Certner said.
Since the 1980s, employers have shifted away from offering defined-benefit pensions, which provide a guaranteed monthly income for as long as someone lives in retirement. Instead, employers now favor 401(k) accounts, a finite pot of money that becomes available at age 59.5. Pensions, which are insured by the federal Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation in case employers go bankrupt, still cover 26.2 million people across 23,400 single-employer plans. But that number has been shrinking faster than it would naturally as companies close their plans to new hires... https://lite.cnn.io/en/article/h_b376f26eed8ac0ea9b11c4ec5a1a1435
We NO LONGER Have To Guess! This WILL 100% Happen. Capitalize On It. By Gregory Mannarino
Israel’s three largest banks — Hapoalim Bank, Leumi Bank and Mizrahi Tefahot Bank — have all been ordered to pay record fines, which collectively are set to total over $1 billion, to the U.S. government after the banks were found to have actively colluded with thousands of wealthy Americans in massive tax-evasion schemes.
Two days after Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido's "government-in-waiting" forcibly took possession of three diplomatic facilities in the United States with the blessing of Washington, and following what many observers speculate are a series of US aggressive maneuvers paving the way for military intervention, Maduro's security forces have begun arresting members of Guaido's staff.

After nearly three years and millions of tax dollars, the Trump-Russia collusion probe is about to be resolved. Emerging in its place is newly unearthed evidence suggesting another foreign effort to influence the 2016 election — this time, in favor of the Democrats.
TYLER DURDEN: “SORRY CITIZEN, SOME FACTS ARE JUST TOO DANGEROUS FOR YOUR OWN GOOD”
Twitter has admitted to shadowbanning a tweet by The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis in order to “keep people safe.” Tweeting a passage last week from former FBI attorney Lisa Page’s Congressional testimony discussing the FBI’s rush to find connections between the Trump campaign and Russia, Davis pointed out the irony of Hillary Clinton’s campaign employing former UK spy Christopher Steele, a foreign national, “working with Russians to obtain damaging information about Donald Trump.” Of note, the dossier Steele compiled which was subsequently used to obtain a warrant to spy on a Trump adviser (and later smear Trump) relied on a “senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure” and “a former top level intelligence officer still active in the Kremlin,” according to Vanity Fair... http://www.thedailysheeple.com/tyler-durden-sorry-citizen-some-facts-are-just-too-dangerous-for-your-own-good-c_032019
Censorship Tightens As Governments Lose Control
Governments have lost control of the narrative that they are in control of events. Everyday I wake up to another instance of outrageous censorship from some ‘social media’ company blocking or banning someone for no apparent reason. The latest outrage is Twitter banning the account of Wikileaks publisher Julian Assange’s mother, Christine.
Australian and New Zealand ISPs have gone bonkers IP blocking sites in the wake of the Christchurch massacre. Sites like Zerohedge have been targeted in the past two weeks for publishing narratives orthogonal to what the governments in the West are comfortable with people consuming. First it was Facebook, blocking and then unblocking Zerohedge with no apparent reasoning behind it. Now its ISP’s over-reacting to an emotional event ensuring that a good crisis never goes to waste... https://www.theburningplatform.com/2019/03/21/censorship-tightens-as-governments-lose-control/
Astonishing bias: 452 Islamic terror attacks in 31 countries just THIS YEAR (so far) and zero coverage from the media
The vast majority of Americans have come to expect biased coverage from the so-called “mainstream media,” and what’s more, they have come to expect that coverage will be designed to advance the Democrats’ Left-wing agenda. That’s according to some of the most recent polling data available. But additional evidence also supports the contention that what the media tends to cover aren’t subjects that are of vital interest or importance to most Americans, and that the media covers ‘narratives’ it helps create, failing — intentionally — to give equal weight to similar stories. The most recent example involves how American journalists initially covered the terrorist attack in New Zealand. Immediately after news of the attack first broke, the Democrat-aligned media filled their airwaves and bandwidth with far-Left pundits and politicians, as well as their own hosts and reporters, who were all quick to blame POTUS Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim “rhetoric.”... https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-03-20-islamic-attacks-gets-zero-coverage-from-media.html
THE WAR ON CHILDREN
SB 5395 regarding Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE). Here's the bill report. This 10-minute video on international CSE tells where the curriculum could go--and we have an example of where it HAS gone in Washington schools...the FLASH curriculum.
Are YOU ok with your kids or grandkids being asked, if they were born again and could choose their gender, what they would choose?Are YOU ok with kids learning the anatomical terms for genitalia...and then being asked to Google the internet for photos of male and female genitalia? What images are they likely to see in their Search results...??
(Sorry about the language.) Are YOU ok with 7th and 8th graders learning this: '“Anal intercourse” is the kind of sexual touch where one person’s penis is in the other person’s anus.' Instructions for the teacher include: "[Probably some students in your class will make inappropriate noises and comments at the idea of anal intercourse. It is important to not allow disrespectful remarks. Because people have diverse beliefs about intercourse, this would be an appropriate time to use the Values Question Protocol.]" (Source: FLASH: 7 Family Life and Sexual Health 7th & 8th Grade Page 23-9) These are all elements of the FLASH curriculum, which will be on the list of approved curricula for Washington state public schools. Just think what families and churches will have to do to help these children try to unlearn this stuff!... MORE ... https://www.comprehensivesexualityeducation.org/english10/
