Story at-a-glance

-While the widespread availability of CBD oil across the U.S. would make you believe it’s legal everywhere, a recent consumer update from the Food and Drug Administration clarifies the issue, noting that CBD is not recognized as a nutritional supplement

-The FDA is now starting to crack down on CBD makers and sellers for illegal product claims. For the first time in nearly four years, warning letters have been issued to 15 companies for CBD products sold in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act

-The only FDA-approved CBD product is a prescription drug for the treatment of two severe forms of epilepsy

-Whole hemp oil can be legally sold across the U.S., even if it contains naturally occurring CBD, but CBD isolates cannot be sold as a nutritional supplement, even if it’s derived from legal hemp

-To stay within the legal framework, companies cannot advertise or list CBD on the label. Nor can they make any specific health or disease

Electric-Powered Commercial Airplane Makes History

News Story Source: Fortune
Nonetheless, when a Beaver lifted off from Vancouver Harbour Tuesday morning, it signaled what many aerospace industry insiders say is commercial aviation’s future. For the first time, an aircraft that carries paying passengers took off with an electric motor.

Startup magniX’s Magni500 electric motor powered the Vancouver-based Harbour Air’s Beaver into the air. The small airline’s chief executive, Greg McDougall, piloted the aircraft during the brief flight over the water, followed by a gentle landing in the harbor. He taxied the plane back to a dock, where a small crowd watching the event cheered.

Plenty of electric-powered aircraft have flown, but Harbour Air is the first airline that is betting its business on electric motors. The airline expects regulators to certify its retrofitted aircraft in about two years, with commercial flights beginning in 2022.

For years, the aerospace industry has been talking about whether electric-powered commercial air travel

Thorium – THE AGE OF ELECTRICITY

News Story Source: LewRockwell.com – By Alvin Lowi, Jr./Chas Holloway
The late 1800s.  A time in America of unlimited freedom.  A time of the rugged individualist.  Tom Edison, deep in his Menlo Park laboratory, creating the Electric Age.  Nicola Tesla, the immigrant competitor, with his electric motor and alternating current.  It was the Golden Age of America.  A time of invention, entrepreneurialism, and genius set free.

At least, that’s the popular myth.

But did you ever wonder what happened to those early American electric companies?  Where is Edison’s company today?  Where is Westinghouse’s company?  In fact, where is any private enterprise electric company?

In 1878, Thomas Edison (and English electrician, Joseph Swan) invented the electrical-resistance-heated, carbon filament, incandescent light bulb.  Self-contained, clean and long-burning, the light bulb was the first popular application for electricity.

Edison’s goal was to replace gas lighting on city streets.  W

“Happening Everywhere In Retail” – Home Depot Links Surge In Thefts To Opioid Crisis

An absolutely shocking account of this has come from Home Depot executives, who warn that the nation’s out of control opioid crisis has sparked a massive surge in thefts in stores across the country.

Bloomberg says the thefts have been so bad in 2019, that it will likely weigh on Home Depot’s operating profit margins next year.

“This is happening everywhere in retail,” Chief Executive Officer Craig Menear told investors on a Wednesday morning call.

“We think this ties to the opioid crisis but we’re not positive about that.”

Home Depot is the first retailer to suggest that the opioid crisis has sparked a recent surge in in-store thefts.

The National Retail Federation has said retailers lose, on average, $51 billion per year, but that number is likely to climb in the years ahead due to the opioid crisis.

In one instance, Menear told investors during the call that thieves were apprehended by law enforcement after attempting to steal $16.5

Volcker at 6’7″ stood over everyone and was a giant in the financial world known for pushing for deflation under Reagan, but there’s more to the story. He was also involved in pushing the United States off the gold standard under Nixon.

In this short video we examine the life of Paul Volcker and what the Federal Reserve in general represents as we perpetuate an already existing recession and as Volcker warned several times in the past couple of years, a collapse.

Ross Ulbricht, serving life without parole for allegedly running the Silk Road marketplace, hasn’t allowed his detention to deprive him from monitoring bitcoin’s price action. In a new blog series titled Bitcoin by Ross, Ulbricht reveals that he is closely attuned to BTC’s price movements, and shares some suggestions as to where the market might be headed next.

Bitcoin Analysis Without the Noise

There are few advantages to being locked up in a maximum security facility, but one unexpected benefit is being able to monitor bitcoin minus the noise of crypto Twitter that can color attempts at analysis. Ross Ulbricht has used this edge to construct an analysis of bitcoin’s price movements over the last decade, and to predict where the cryptocurrency might be headed next.

In the first six installments of Bitcoin by Ross, the Silk Road founder explains Elliot Wave Theory, and how it can be applied to bitcoin. The series starts by answering a question that many fol

Sin Taxes & Other Orwellian Methods of Compliance That Feed the Government's Greed

News Story Source: Natural News by: JD Heyes
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”—C.S. Lewis

“Taxman,” the only song written by George Harrison to open one of the Beatles’ albums (it featured on the band’s 1966 Revolver album), is a snarling, biting, angry commentary on government greed and how little control “we the taxpayers” have over our lives and our money.

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,

If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.

If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,

If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

Don’t ask me what I want it for

If you don’t want to pa
