With major “newspapers of record” like the New York Times and Washington Post facing the very real threat of financial destruction, they’ve more than ever become Deep State vanity presses owned by mega-billionaries like Carlos Slim (NYT) and Jeff Bezos (WaPo).

In the wake of news that a CNN producer called the Trump-Russia narrative mostly “bullshit” to boost ratings, classifying journalistic ethics as nothing but “cutesy” relics from journalism school for wide-eyed college kids, I thought the timing was perfect for Volume Two of our visual guide.

I sent a letter to Senator Tim Kaine, D-VA, regarding the very clear push by globalist influences to abolish cash in the name of “consumer protection,” “reducing crime” and money laundering. It’s an absurd impetus, given that the biggest money criminals (the big banks) are protected by government, and the biggest drug traffickers (the CIA) […]
