Financial "panic" can (and will) happen suddenly overnight.
Belarus is having an inflation panic.
Bank run. People.
- The people are scrambling to save their savings by turning now-worthless BYR (belarus rubles) into physical assets, emptying bank accounts first and then store shelves.
Capital controls. Government.
- The government is also scrambling blocking online stores and websites, halting FX trading, and announcing a 30% tax on foreign currency purchases.
- Neither the people nor the government apparently had a "plan" for this event, but not to 'worry'...neither does the FED, ECB, or BOJ.
Plan in one hand, or HOPE in the other.
- The prudent mariner would be better served by having a "plan" for the day after, and not trusting in the government to save them. And no, HOPE is not a plan..........

I'm from the [insert one of the following...(a) Government, (b) Democratic (C) party, (c) Republicratic (S) party, (d) ALL of the above...] and I am NOT here to help!
The unjust "justice" and unequal "equality" spouted by the Communists infesting Washington and both political parties is based upon a perverted and failed notion of 'equality of outcome.'
- Impoverish everyone equally, and Socialist nirvana can be achieved.
There is a price to pay for admission to their sick dystopian utopia, however.
- The opportunity to start from the same place, and the freedom to succeed or fail needs to be sacrificed and subordinated to the self-selected Komissars.

For the control freaks among us it's ALL about control.
IF enough of the sheeple figure things out for themselves, it's game over.
- Hence the 'push' to create a generation of "Children of the (Common) Core."
The question is whether one 'submits' to this artificial control, or says "lan astaslem" I will not submit."

As America comes to terms with the summary execution of two police officers at the hands of a killer who was incited by a government that deliberately stirs up race hatred in pursuit of their political ends, the people themselves have to accept a share of the blame.
Anyone who doesn't understand the race baiting politics of the 'Reverend' Al Sharpton are either not paying attention or ignoring them on purpose because they share his agenda.
Because this race pimp is a self appointed leader of a community which consists mainly of gullible people not known for their intellectual capacity, he lacks official legitimacy. The malign influence he has over his flock however is immense.
Whenever and wherever there is an opportunity to divide and stir up hatred based on skin colour he is usually the first on the scene.
If the devil had a son he would look like Al Sharpton.
It is therefore a sad indictment of elected political leaders that they choose to align themselves with people like Sharpton knowing the divisiveness and hatred they peddle. They do this, not only to ingratiate themselves with his community in the hope of harvesting their votes, but because they actually share his agenda.
The people of New York elected Bill de Blasio as their Mayor knowing full well about his communist sympathies and his political alliances with race pimps like the 'Reverend' Sharpton. As a consequence they must share some of the blame for deaths of these two brave officers.
New York's first, and hopefully last, openly Marxist Mayor shares with Sharpton the anti-police philosophy that is inherent in this perverted creed.
This was recently demonstrated firstly by the admission that de Basio taught his own mixed race son to distrust New York police officers, and secondly by his condoning of an anti-police march by Sharpton which shut down some New York streets and closed the Brooklyn Bridge.
The chanting of the ignorant, deliberately aroused rabble should be replayed to these two cop haters for the rest of the miserable lives.
What do we want?
When do we want them?
(Watch the disgusting spectacle here)
In light of the incitement to hatred against white people and the police, and the rabble rousing by race baiters like Sharpton, it's no wonder that some idiot would do the inevitable and kill some policemen.
As Mayor, de Blasio will have known about Sharpton and his modus operandi he should have taken control of the demonstration containing it to a certain area. He also should have had Sharpton arrested under inciting racial hatred laws, the minute he started his rabble rousing.
He is after all supposed to be representing the interests of all New Yorkers not just the professional, agenda driven rent-a-mob.
Mayor de Blasio was elected by the people of New York despite his unwavering support for the brutal Sandinista terrorist organisation that butchered its way to power in Nicaragua, and his support for America's implacable blood drenched enemy, Fidel Castro.
(See de Basio's communist pedigree here, here and here)
The people of New York by choosing an agenda driven communist as their Mayor has resulted in the deaths of two policemen who were doing their duty on behalf of the community. They can atone for this aberration by instigating the recall of de Basio and by being more discerning in their future choice of Mayor.

There has been a reorganization, a shake-up, of the executives at Sony Pictures.
The nutless wonders have been replaced by Kim of the NORKS, and Al of the Tawana.
Barry, boy-commissar, has blessed and celebrated this unholy union by smoking some serious dope with brutha Al, inducting him as an honorary member of the Choom Gang.
- They were both too loaded to comment or answer if any reach-arounds were given during the festivities...

Good food, friendly service and a huge helping of freedom — that’s what they’re dishing up at Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado. “It’s not about politics, it’s a way of life,” says one of the servers, who can be seen with a Ruger Blackhawk .357 strapped on her hip. But she’s not alone, customers carry too and owner Lauren Boebert wouldn’t have it any other way. “We’re certainly able to protect ourselves,” she says.

I wonder IF, and if so, just HOW MUCH of this story will be told in the "Minneapolis Star" (aka The Red Star), the official newspaper of record for the Minnesota DFL Party?*
* For those who don't know, it wasn't enough for Minnesotans to merely have a Democratic (C) party...it had to be the Democratic Farmer Labor party, which is actually a better "fit" for the People's Democratic Republic of Minnesota. But I digress.....
Mall of America, THE largest mall in the US, which is located there, was shutdown by "protestors" Saturday 12-20. Merry Christmas.
HINT: They were NOT protesting the 'revenge' execution-murder of two NYPD cops by a BLACK MUSLIM ACTIVIST named Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley who sold 'kill George Zimmerman' t-shirts, and whose Facebook page quoted the Qu'ran verse 8:60 commanding believers to "Strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah."
- Oh yeah, he also self-identified as an Arabic speaker...something not very common for a typical gang-banger.

PJTV Member Maxsmodels asks whether TV shows like "The Walking Dead" are promoting gun rights and the Second Amendment. Andrew Klavan and Bill Whittle think so. Hear why as they discuss the popular AMC television program about a global zombie apocalypse. Are television writers and producers realizing that there is little money in promoting their own values? Are we about to witness a new found respect in Hollywood for the Bill of Rights and conservative viewpoints? Hear the answers.

Let's connect a few dots.
The TV personality "reverend" Al Sharpton is now calling for Congress to take "immediate action" to do something about a problem that has been completely manufactured and totally fabricated.
- Yeah, THAT Al who is a frequent visitor and advisor to the Communist-controlled White House (Red Shed) and is also the unofficial Vice Mayor to DeBlasio of Communist-controlled NYC.
There is an obvious AGENDA here.
The "riots" (Ferguson, NYC, et al) that were instigated, aided, and abetted by the DOJ under notable racist bigot Eric dickHolder as directed by notable racist bigot Barry dickSmoker by the race-baiter/race-pimp industry operated by the likes of Tawana Al and Je$$e to 'prove' how evil and racist the police are merely a STRATEGY towards a goal.
The GOAL? More control. A nationalized federalized POLICE force. CONTROL of the police.
Far-fetched? The fed's have already nationalized and taken control of the US healthcare system (a huge portion of the national economy), why not the soon-to-no-longer-be the local police too?
A word of caution to the thin blue line...watch your ass and cover your six Barney Fife. Especially the Sheriff's who are, for now, the supreme policing authority in America's counties. The Commie rump-rangers are coming after us all...........
