    LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May has warned there may be "no Brexit at all" because of lawmakers' attempts to undermine her plan to leave the European Union.

    "My message to the country this weekend is simple: we need to keep our eyes on the prize," May wrote in the Mail on Sunday newspaper. "If we don’t, we risk ending up with no Brexit at all."

    Earlier this week two senior ministers resigned in protest at May's plans for trade with the EU after Britain leaves the bloc next March. Her blueprint was then criticized in a newspaper interview by U.S. President Donald Trump, a position he backtracked on during a meeting with May on Friday.

    May also wrote in the Mail on Sunday article that Britain would take a tough stance in its next round of negotiations with the EU.

    I forsee a very diluted UK exit from EU or one with very little difference from the current status in the future. And the longer this negotiation goes on, the lesser the chances of any exit. Think about that when next to see a pic of Nigel Farage grinning after the brexit win.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The 11 million Americans who receive Social Security disability face steep benefit cuts next year, the government said Wednesday, handing lawmakers a fiscal and political crisis in the middle of a presidential campaign.

    The trustees who oversee Social Security and Medicare said the disability trust fund will run out of money in late 2016. That would trigger an automatic 19 percent cut in benefits, unless Congress acts.

    The average monthly benefit for disabled workers and their families is $1,017. The typical beneficiary would see a reduction of $193 a month.

    "Today's report shows that we must seek meaningful, in some instances even urgent, changes to ensure the program is on stable ground for future generations," said ...

    In major cities throughout the United States, taxi medallion prices are tumbling as taxis face competition from car-service apps like Uber and Lyft.

    The average price of an individual New York City taxi medallion fell to $872,000 in October, down 17 percent from a peak reached in the spring of 2013, according to an analysis of sales data. Previous figures published by the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission — showing flat prices — appear to have been incorrect, and the commission removed them from its website after an inquiry from The New York Times.

    In other big cities, medallion prices are also falling, often in conjunction with a sharp decline in sales volume. In Chicago, prices are down 17 percent. In Boston, they’re down at least 20 percent, though it’s ...

    KIEV (Reuters) - Kiev said two of its fighter jets were shot down over the rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday, and the missiles that brought them down might have been fired from Russia.

    A spokesman for Ukraine's military operations said the planes were shot down near Savur Mogila, not far from where a Malaysian airliner was brought down last week, killing all 298 passengers on board.

    Ukraine's Security Council said the military jets were hit at the altitude of 5,200 meters by missiles that, according to preliminary information, were launched from Russia.

    "They were shot down very professionally. The terrorists do not have such professionals,"
    said Andriy Lysenko, the council's spokesman, referring to pro-Russian rebels fighting the government forces in eastern Ukraine.

    These guys should make up their minds already. Are the rebels capable of shooting down planes or not?

    I can't find any updates on how he's doing, and I can't help but believe it's probably because he's asymptomatic and it would hurt the narrative to see someone not get sick at all, especially since Tom Hanks is pulling out of it with no issues. IOW this is a gigantic nothingburger, and I take the lack of news as evidence.

However, by using vitamin c as a placebo, they will discount the use of hydroxychloroquine by saying that they see no benefit as the placebo's performed just as well. Then they will push their vaccines.

    Gold will be stupidly worthless in a hyperinflation scenario

    Thread Starter: mustang19

    The gold supply has increased enormously since 1776. In a peak oil social collapse there might be 1 million people surviving and 1000 tons of gold. If gold is 1% of the economy like it always has been then your annual income will be a ton of gold. Gold would be extremely abundant in a social collapse scenario, the gold morons will die and people who buy things that are practical/useful wont.
