The video you are about to watch, is a wonderful new Christmas advert which is touching the hearts of millions. It begins with an older Polish man ordering an "English for Beginners" book online. Then you learn why...
The Nazis committed a host of atrocities during the Second World War, but chief among them was their attempted extermination of the Jewish people, along with many other minorities and marginalized groups.
Along with the cold weather, there are a number of special challenges that winter brings along with it, and we all have to just deal with them! Dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy noses, darkness at 4PM, winter storms, the list goes on and on.
One of the most annoying things by far is clearing walkways and driveways of snow and ice. The same goes for cars, but while you can often drive through a little bit of snow, you can't with an ice-covered windshield. Not only is it illegal to drive with an obstructed view, it's also insanely dumb and extremely dangerous.
While defrosting the car and scraping ice off the windshield seems like a necessary evil, it doesn't have to be. You really don’t need to wake up extra early just to stumble around in the freezing cold darkness so that you can drive to work. Instead, you can save yourself some time and energy by doing the following:
In a spray bottle container mix together 2 parts isopropyl alcohol with 1 part water and then add in 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Shake it up, spray it directly onto an icy windshield, and watch the ice literally melt away right before your very eyes!
This rubbing alcohol spray is the perfect thing to have on hand for freezing cold mornings and icy windshields. You can leave the bottle in your car and it won't even freeze, unless it gets well below zero. That's because the freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -128.2 degrees Fahrenheit, so when you spray it on the ice, it doesn't freeze up. Instead, it helps to melt the ice and keeps it from re-freezing. Since all you have to do is mist it on, it's by far the quickest and easiest way to clear a windshield that's coated with a thick layer of ice.
Don't forget to check out the video to see exactly how well this works in action and be sure to pass it along to those who could use the smart tip. If it can make someone's life a little bit easier this winter, then it's worth it!
Donald Trump has vowed to abolish the Federal Reserve and reinstate the gold standard when he enters the White House in January. One of Trump's picks for the Treasury Department Secretary, John Allison, hinted that he will implement the gold standard when the current Federal Reserve Chief, Janet Yellen, retires in 2018.
On the campaign trail, Trump often questioned the future of the Federal Reserve's political independence. In line with these comments, Allison wants to abolish Federal Reserve all together and go back to the gold standard.
In fact, Allison takes that rhetoric one step further. While acting as the head of the Cato Institute, Allison published several thesis indicating that the Federal Reserve was obsolete and needed to be abolished as it restricts power from the people and allows billionaire cronies to run banks globally.
“I would get rid of the Federal Reserve because the volatility in the economy is primarily caused by the Fed,” Allison wrote in 2014 for the Cato Journal.
As an alternative, Allison argues that if we allow the market to regulate itself, it would be preferable to the Federal Reserve harming the stability of the financial system.
“When the Fed is radically changing the money supply, distorting interest rates, and over-regulating the financial sector, it makes rational economic calculation difficult,” Allison wrote. “Markets do form bubbles, but the Fed makes them worse.”
The United States never had a persistent, ongoing problem with inflation until the Federal Reserve was created in 1913. This chart alone proves that theory:
The Federal Reserve systematically penalizes those that try to save their money. Inflation is a tax, and the value of each one of our dollars goes down a little bit more every single day.
The Federal Reserve system was also designed to trap people. The intent of the bankers was to trap the U.S. government in an endless debt spiral from which it could never escape, and most Americans don't understand this. In fact, most Americans don't even understand where money comes from or how he value it.
Point blank, the Federal reserves needs to be abolished if we are ever going to reduce our national debt, create jobs, and give more power back to the people.
A vast majority of these proposals are directly aligned with Donald Trump's desire to rollback regulations — including Dodd-Frank — on financial institutions, as well.
It would provide a more stable means for markets as well as allowing the monopolization of banks to be broken down instead of allowing less than ten people to control all of the worlds banks.
The Federal Reserve is at the heart of most of the economic woes facing the US. Endless borrowing and money printing will result in massive inflation, and interest rates cannot stay low forever. We could very well see the market collapse again if we do not make drastic changes.
Trump's meeting is more than notable, it is almost groundbreaking. No president has dared to take power away from the Rothschilds' and other billionaire elites that control all of the worlds banks.
We could possibly be taking steps to eliminate one of the most corrupt banking schemes to ever take hold in this country.
Should Donald Trump work to abolish the Federal Reserve?
Bolivia has become the latest country to kick the Rothschild banks out of their country, with President Evo Morales announcing that Bolivia will no longer respond to pressure or financial blackmail from the US government or Rothschild-controlled international banking institutions.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and US-dominated World Bank have been major players in the global economic landscape ever since their creation in 1944. These international banking organizations, which are privately controlled by the notorious Rothschild banking family, first pressure nations to deregulate their financial sector, allowing private banks to loot their economies.
Once the governments are forced to bail-out their deregulated financial sector, the IMF or World Bank sets up a loan package written in secret by central bankers and finance ministers that undermine their national sovereignty and force them to adopt policies of austerity that harm workers, families, and the environment.
Bolivia have become the first South American country to grow wise to the ruse. They have worked hard to gain financial independence and are now in the process of kicking the Rothschild controlled banks out of their country.
True Activist reports:
Before Evo Morales assumed the office of president, Bolivia was suffering from the effects of IMF/World Bank-imposed austerity and privatization that exploited its people and resources. It was also South America's poorest nation. Though the Bolivian people, through strong showings of popular resistance over a period of years, were able to stop some of the worst privatization efforts – particularly the privatization of the nation's water supply, many of the shackles imposed by these Rothschild-controlled institutions remained.
Morales, who became Bolivia's 80th president in 2006, was the first president to come from Bolivia's majority indigenous Aymara population and has since focused on poverty reduction and combating the influence of the United States and multinational corporations in Bolivia. Ten years later, Morales, a Democratic socialist, has managed to transform Bolivia into the fastest growing South American economy all while maintaining a balanced budget and slashing its once-crippling government debt.
Bolivia's newfound economic independence has now empowered Morales to reject the very same institutions that once preyed upon his country. Just a few weeks ago, Morales announced that Bolivia will no longer respond to the demands or blackmail of the United States, the World Bank, or the IMF.
During a visit to Tarija in Southern Bolivia, Morales said “Before, in order to obtain credit from the IMF, we were forced to give up a part of our country, but we have liberated ourselves economically and politically and we are no longer dependent on other countries or institutions.” Morales praised social movements and the people's unity for the country's ability to resist and reject privatization and foreign influence.
However, Bolivia has done much more under Morales' leadership than ban international banking cartels from operating within it borders. Bolivia has kicked out numerous multi-corporations since Morales took office, including McDonalds and Coca Cola, while also refusing to cooperate with the US' disastrous War on Drugs.
It is also devotes 14% of its national budget to education, the second most of any country in South America. In contrast, only 1.7% of the national budget goes to education in the US. Morales also forced foreign oil and gas companies to pay an astounding 82% of its profits to the Bolivian government, which is used to fund a variety of popular social programs benefiting the poor. Poverty in Bolivia has dropped significantly as a result. Bolivia's transformation under Morales proves that any nation, no matter how impoverished, can throw off the shackles imposed by international bankers and return the power to the people.
The Central Bank of Bolivia (BCB) informs users of external sector statistics that the Balance of Payments and International Investment Position figures, compiled with the methodological framework of the VI Balance of Payments Manual and International Investment Position, Will be available on the BCB website starting Monday, November 21, 2016. On that date, the BCB authorities will hold a press conference explaining the main changes involved in implementing the VI Manual. The interested public is invited to participate in this conference on Floor 27, at 10:00 a.m. The application of this methodological framework allows the country to continue strengthening the process of compilation, dissemination and statistical harmonization. It also ensures high levels of quality at the international level in the compilation of external statistics. La Paz, November 20, 2016.
If you want the candidate with the highest probability of ensuring marijuana will be legal across the country, Donald Trump is your best option. In 1990, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune has Donald Trump on record claiming US drug enforcement is ‘a joke’ and all drugs should be legalized to ‘take the profit away from these drug czars.’ According to Trump, tax revenues from a legalized drug trade will be used to educate the public on the dangers of drugs.
It's no surprise that Trump's isolationist tactics of building a wall that divides Mexico and the US along with banning all Muslims from entering the country has spilled over to international drug trade. While Trump may not be the most detailed oriented candidate, he redundantly insists that our jobs are being taken away by China and Mexico — including the esteemed title of ‘drug czar’.
Under President Trump, if drug lords are to be created, they better be made in the USA — and how can you blame him? Our drug dealers have been outsourced to other countries for far too long. If America hopes to create the next Walter White, we must locally foster and create drug lords and keep them within our borders.
Trump also stated we're losing badly the war on drugs, and you have to legalize drugs to win that war. For a candidate that bases his entire brand on ‘winning,’ losing a war on drugs would severely chip away from the superhuman aura he's manifested since he announced his run for president on June 16, 2015.
According to Trump, getting a ‘win’ against the war on drugs starts with complete legalization of all drugs.
Now that Trump has shifted from business man to a political Frankenstein created by the GOP and the media, his stance on marijuana has slightly shifted. In a November interview with GQ last year, Trump states ‘[marijuana for] medical purposes for medicinal purposes it’s absolutely fine.’
While his stance on marijuana may seem to change, his belief that the ‘war on drugs’ is a joke has not. On ABC's ‘This Week,’ Trump told host Martha Raddatz that the country is doing a ‘poor job’ policing drugs; specifically, “We don't want to do anything. And if you're not going to want to do the policing, you're going to have to start thinking about other alternatives.”
But it's not something that I would want to do. Don't worry, I speak double-talk Trump — let me translate. Donald Trump simply restated his 1990 position on the War on Drugs however the semantics have shifted to him exploring ‘other alternatives’ to alleviate this problem.
In that same statement, Trump insists that we (he) doesn’t want to do anything about the ‘war on drugs’ solely because he believes the enforcement isn't working. Of course the only remaining ‘other alternative’ to his proposal is something that he's reiterated in the past, complete drug legalization.
Presidential candidates tend to swing far right/left early on to appeal to their party's core demographic in order to be their respective party's nominee. Once the country is left with two candidates, both shift towards the middle to appeal to voters in the opposing field.
That's just the way the political game has been operating for as long as any CNN talking head can remember.
Could Trump's recent shift in his stance on marijuana be an objective attempt to garner key votes in his party? Of course it is.
In 2004, Trump told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that he identifies ‘more as a democrat’ and that it “seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans.”
Therefore Trump dipping to a more liberal center if/when he becomes the Republican nominee doesn't seem that unreasonable.
That tilt towards the center would also reflect his previously held stance on drug legalization. Compared to current field of presidential candidates, Trump has held the most radical stance against the enforcement of marijuana and other drugs for for the longest duration.
According to a 2012 RAND report commissioned by the White House, the organization found that $100 billion dollars a year is being generated by illegal drug trade in America, with $40 billion coming from marijuana.
As far as the failed drug enforcement that Trump has repeatedly talked about for decades, in 2010 the federal government spent $15 billion on the ‘war on drugs’ with states and local governments spending an additional $25 billion.
When it comes to the superfluous government spending that Trump denounces at his rallies and debates, $40 billion could be saved just from doing what he said he would do: stop the war on drugs. In fact, Trump would save 400% more from cutting federal and state level enforcement on drugs than he would from ending Common Core.
The real question is if elected, will Trump come through on the multitude of platforms he's been promising the American people. That's yet to be determined.
However, if Donald Trump's words are to be believed as truth, then it's clear that Donald Trump will be the biggest proponent for the legalization of marijuana in our country's history.
