Mélange

The usual gang of suspects is afoot today spreading their brand of joy and ‘liberty’. Currency manipulation to monetary meltdown will be solved by the Governments around the world and at home. Only problem is they’re the ones who caused the troubles. Of course free speech can’t be unpunished either.

Policing our financial well-being is job #1 at DoJ. These stalwart ferrets will uncover and expose to sunlight the hooligans with the same alacrity as the Russian probe.

DOJ launches investigation into bitcoin price manipulation: report

The U.S. Department of Justice has opened a criminal investigation into whether traders are manipulating the price of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, said a Bloomberg report on Thursday citing unnamed sources. Investigators are focused on illegal moves that can affect prices, such as spoofing, which refers to flooding a market with fake orders. Bitcoin BTCUSD, -2.86% recently was changing hands around $7,388, after falling sharply Wednesday.

We here at Loon Watch are observing the workings of our highly esteemed and incorrigible DoJ. After seeing them root out the Russian infiltration of the Trump Administration We rest easy that they’ll find the culprit for these shenanigans.

This is quite interesting since Islam forbids collection of interest. But as we have seen in the past, political choices brush such things aside.

Turkey’s Currency Meltdown

Investing in emerging markets is like watching the tides without the moon as a guide. Capital flows in and out in surges, and woe to the country that gets caught with bad policies when the tide suddenly goes out. Argentina has been getting that re-education of late, and now Turkey is watching capital flee for safer climes.

Turkey’s lira fell as much as 5% on Wednesday, and it’s lost more than a fifth of its value this year, adding to a long decline that is forcing extreme monetary measures to compensate. Much of the blame lies with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as Turkey has been running a current-account deficit that is on trend to exceed 6% of GDP. Turkey has been growing rapidly but the growth has been heavily financed by dollar-denominated investment.

Meanwhile, Mr. Erdogan has been beating the central bank like it’s Syria’s Bashar Assad. In Ankara this month, he called high interest rates “both the mother and father of all evils.” Investors took this to mean he’s exerting political control over Turkey’s central bank even as inflation has reached nearly 11%.

With capital fleeing, Mr. Erdogan is getting higher interest rates in any case as the central bank tries to stem the lira panic. On Wednesday the bank lifted a key lending rate to 16.5% from 13.5%. Consider this the price of the lost credibility of Turkish institutions under Mr. Erdogan’s increasingly authoritarian rule. Dictators are rarely good economic managers because they want to dictate fiscal and monetary policy as much as they do every political choice. [snip]

From the “How come department” the question presented is why do all tyrants wind up in the same place. Well, this is just another show to enjoy as the curtain rises on Act II of “Schadenfreude, how do I love thee”.

Again, the Progressive “Policy of Tolerance” graces us with it’s benevolence.

He was suspended for wearing a Trump shirt. Now, he’s suing his Oregon school district

An Oregon high school student is suing his school, saying it violated his First Amendment rights when it suspended him for wearing a Trump T-shirt.

The student, 18-year-old Addison Barnes, told FOX 12 that he was asked to cover up a T-shirt he was wearing that said “Donald J. Trump Construction Co.” on it, or leave school. The shirt also included a Trump quote: “The wall just got 10 feet taller.”

According to KGW, Barnes wore the shirt to his People and Politics class at Liberty High School in Hillsboro in January, and he told the TV outlet he knew they’d be discussing immigration in class that day.

The school official who pulled Barnes out of class to ask him to cover the shirt also told him at least one student and one teacher had been offended by the shirt, The Associated Press reported. [snip]

“The high school, ironically named Liberty High School, had violated his free speech rights,” Barnes’ attorney, Mike McLane, told KGW. The Associated Press reports that McLane is also the leader of the Republican minority in Oregon’s House of Representatives. [snip]

Left unsaid was the condition of the offended student and teacher. Did they need counseling or a trip to the mental trauma center.

Iniquitous Individuals

How often do we hear people wonder why the Press doesn’t list President Trump’s accomplishments. They have a variety of reasons; you know most of them.
Similarly, they never listed Obama’s huge list of accomplishments either. Perhaps it is time that is rectified. Obama deserves the credit for what he’s done over eight (8) years.

He has done more than any other President before him.

Here is a list of his impressive accomplishments:

 

  • First President to be photographed smoking a joint.
  • First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.
  • First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.
  • First President to preside over a cut to the credit-rating of the United States
  • First President to violate the War Powers Act.
  • First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
  • First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.
  • First President to spend a trillion dollars on “shovel-ready” jobs when there was no such thing as “shovel-ready” jobs.
  • First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.
  • First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.
  • First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S., including those with criminal convictions.
  • First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.
  • First President to tell a CEO of a major corporation (Chrysler) to resign.
  • First President to terminate America ‘s ability to put a man in space.
  • First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation.
  • First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.
  • First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.
  • First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke out on the reasons for their rate increases.
  • First President to tell a major manufacturing company (Boeing) in which state it is allowed to locate a factory.
  • First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN).
  • First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.
  • First President to actively try to bankrupt an American industry (coal).
  • First President to fire an inspector general of AmeriCorps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.
  • First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.
  • First President to surround himself with radical left wing anarchists(incl a communist!!).
  • First President to golf more than 150 separate times in his five years in office.
  • First President to hide his birth, medical, educational and travel records.
  • First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.
  • First President to go on multiple “global apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours.
  • First President to go on over 17 lavish vacations, in addition to date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayers.
  • First President to have personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.
  • First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.
  • First President to fly in a personal trainer from Chicago at least once a week at taxpayer expense.
  • First President to repeat the Quran and tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.
  • First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).
  • First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.”
  • Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.

It probably isn’t possible for President Trump to even come close to Obama’s record.
It isn’t hard to see why the State Owned Media doesn’t want to tout a record such as this. To add stink to poop, he wants to build a library, an edifice to house such crap.
If it is built, a site in some suitable place must be selected: Haiti, Kenya or some other African shithole or better yet, Libya where he can listen to the howling from some minaret to his heart’s content.

Open Borders and your Life

You might want to take note of what is happening in England. This is over and beyond the next election which probably will bring the Labor Party to power and an avowed Communist/Marxist to the position of Prime Minister. He stated he will rid the country of capitalism. He might not get a chance.

The open borders of the EU changed the makeup of the local governance.
Here’s what has already happened to England within a few years of opening their borders without any entry control.

How the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:

  • Mayor of London … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Birmingham …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Leeds … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Blackburn … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Sheffield …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Oxford .. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Luton … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Oldham …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Rochdale …. MUSLIM

All the following achieved by just 4 million Muslims out of the 66 million population:

  • Over 3,000 Muslim Mosques
  • Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts
  • Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils
  • Muslims Only No-Go Areas Across The UK
  • Muslim Women…78% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
  • Muslim Men…63% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
  • Muslim Families…6-8 children planning to go on FREE benefits/housing
  • All UK schools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!

The USA and Canada can’t decide on an immigration policy? Maybe this might give you a better understanding of the insidiousness of Hijrah; that’s the takeover of a nation without going to war.
Don’t think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred.

It’s time for immigration control, or start planning for a very big goodbye to the American way of life!

Who’s your Daddy?

George Soros is looking to mess with the 2020 Presidential Election once more with another stealth candidate.
We posted to this before; it looks like others have more on this subject.

Iniquitous Individuals

This came to is in the form of an e-mail. We did search the link given and there is much to read. The links are there but very thin; that doesn’t mean they are not real, just not yet substantiated. No one paid serious attention to Obama’s sealed background until it was too late. Perhaps close scrutiny will be in order this time. As with everything, this e-mail has truths, extrapolations, and conjecture to make the reader want more.

Etch this man’s name in your mind.
His name is Abdul El-Sayed.

After years of being groomed by George Soros. He has been handpicked by the Left to be their next “champion” of Hope and Change.

He is 32 years old, born in the USA, and an extremely well educated Muslim Doctor in Detroit Michigan. (education funded by Soros) He is handsome, articulate, charismatic and smart. He is sympathetic of the Muslim Brotherhood, and is running for Governor of Michigan. Which is Step 1 in his preparation to run for President of the United States.

He has the potential to be Obama #2, but far more openly Muslim. Abdulrahman Mohamed El-Sayed is an American physician, epidemiologist, public health advocate, and politician.
He has announced his candidacy for Governor of Michigan, running as a Democrat.

Wikipedia:
Born: October 31, 1984 (age 32), Michigan
Awards: Rhodes Scholarship; Paul and Daisy Soros; Fellowships for New Americans
Education: University of Michigan, Ann; Arbor (BA); Oriel College, Oxford (MA, PhD); Columbia University (MD)
Political party: Democratic Party.

In 2020 he will be eligible to run for President!
Democrats’ mouths are watering in anticipation and raising money. Elizabeth “Fauxahontas” Warren is already campaigning for him.
Is he another Trojan Horse?

Al Jazeera, which is widely read by Michigan’s large Muslim population, is doing its best to help George Soros make him “YOUR” president in 2020!
Google: Abdul El-Sayed-Soros

Footnote: Bet you never dreamed an unknown, like Obama, would end up as the President of the United States of America not just once but twice for eight years total, did you?! Well, what did we get?

You didn’t hear this from the Fake News Media

Not a peep from them. Doesn’t fit the narrative of Trump’s anti-Muslim agenda rant they have on the front burner. However Trump doesn’t have anything of this nature being suggested or mentioned ever.

Migrants are being sold at

open slave markets in Libya

Vulnerable refugees from West Africa often arrive in the country with no money and no papers.

Migrants from West Africa are being openly traded in “public slave markets” across Libya.
As a departure point for refugees trying to get to Europe, migrants arriving in Libya from sub-Saharan are particularly vulnerable due to a lack of money and little in the way of documentation.

Survivors have told the International Organization for Migration (IOM) how there are slave markets and private prisons all over Libya.

Mohammed Abdiker, IOM’s head of operation and emergencies, said: “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.”

One survivor from Senegal spoke of how he was brought by smugglers across Niger in a bus to the southern Libyan city of Sabha, where he was due to risk a boat trip to Europe. When the middleman did not get his fee, the survivor was put up for sale along with other passengers.

He was taken to a prison where he worked without pay while the captors demanded 300,000 West African francs (about £380) before selling him on to a larger jail. Livia Manante, an IOM officer based in Niger, said migrants would be brought to a square where they were put up for sale.

Manante said: “IOM Italy has confirmed that this story is similar to many stories reported by migrants and collected at landing points in southern Italy, including the slave market reports.”

Those who did not get their ransom paid were often taken away and killed while others would die of hunger and disease in unsanitary conditions.

“If the number of migrants goes down, because of death or someone is ransomed, the kidnappers just go to the market and buy one,” Manente said.

The going rate for a migrant was between $200 (£160) and $500 (£400) each, with many forced into captivity for months before they are freed or sold on. So far this year more than 170 bodies have washed up on the shores of the Mediterranean while the Libyan Coast Guard has also rescued thousands more.

IOM has helped repatriate 1,500 people back to West Africa so far this year where it is trying to inform people not to risk the journey to Libya where they face exploitation.

“Migrants who go to Libya while trying to get to Europe, have no idea of the torture archipelago that awaits them just over the border,” said Leonard Doyle, chief IOM spokesman in Geneva. “There they become commodities to be bought, sold and discarded when they have no more value.”
