*"Follow Your Destiny"* "Follow your destiny, Water your plants, Love your roses. The rest is shadow Of unknown trees. Reality is always More or less Than what we want. Only we are always Equal to ourselves. It’s good to live alone, And noble and great Always to live simply. Leave pain on the altar As an offering to the gods. See life from a distance. Never question it. There’s nothing it can Tell you. The answer Lies beyond the Gods. But quietly imitate Olympus in your heart. The gods are gods Because they don’t think About what they are." - Fernando Pessoa

Experts warn that Trumpcare could destabilize insurance markets, as Senate Republicans express doubts there are enough votes for it to pass.

Gryphen at The Immoral Minority - 10 hours ago
Courtesy of The Hill: *One of the primary arguments from Republicans for repealing ObamaCare is that the healthcare law is “collapsing.” But experts warn that the GOP’s legislation might destabilize insurance markets even more over time. * *The Senate’s ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill, released Thursday, would abolish ObamaCare’s mandate for people to have insurance, but it would still bar insurers from denying people coverage for pre-existing conditions. * *Experts warn that arrangement would allow people to wait until they get sick to buy insurance coverage, likely driving up ... more »

*"A Stock Market Crash Scenario"* by Charles Hugh Smith "After 8+ years of phenomenal gains, it's pretty obvious the global stock market rally is overdue for a credit-cycle downturn, and many research services of Wall Street heavyweights are sounding the alarm about the auto industry's slump, the slowing of new credit and other fundamental indicators that a recession is becoming more likely. Few have taken the risk of projecting a date for the crash, this gent being a gutsy outlier: 'Hedge Fund CIO Sets The Day When The Next Crash Begins'.

The pea soup represents the sort of ideology that the Democratic Party has spewed out in recent years - a toxic mush of racial identity politics, contempt for men, ... more »

The Big Problem When It Comes to Building a Much Bigger U.S. Navy

Sandra Erwin at The National Interest - 10 hours ago
*Sandra Erwin* *Security, * Despite the heightened publicity generated by the proposed legislation, the stark reality is that a 355-ship Navy is largely unaffordable and a long shot, at best, analysts said. A coalition of shipbuilding champions on Capitol Hill hope to soon celebrate passage of a bipartisan bill that would cement into law a requirement for the U.S. Navy to have a fleet of 355 combat ships. How that effort would be funded, or when, is anyone’s guess. The budget proposed by President Trump falls way short of what it would cost to ramp up production beyond what the... more »

Republicans Still Pushing False Flags In Syria And Cold War With Russia

Daniel McAdams at 10 hours ago
Seymour Hersh's shocking new investigative report shows that US intelligence knew there was no Assad chemical attack in April, but that President Trump was so influenced by media images (which may have been faked) that he fired 59 Tomahawk missiles into Syria anyway. Meanwhile, rank and file Democrat Members of Congress are growing frustrated over their leadership's continuing obsession with Russia as public opinion shifts on the issue. Republican Members are pushing for more Russia sanctions. Political shifts, on today's Liberty Report:
