Venezuela Slashes 5 Zeros From Currency In "One Of Greatest Devaluations Ever"

As previewed yesterday, on Monday Venezuela officially slashed five zeros from prices and its currency as part of what has been dubbed one of the greatest currency devaluations in history which slashed the value of the official bolivar by 95%, an overhaul that President Nicolas Maduro said would tame hyperinflation, and which everyone else called the latest desperate failed socialist policy that will push the chaotic country deeper into crisis and unleash even higher hyperinflation (impossible as that may sound: as a reminder the collapse of Venezuela's currency recently surpassed the Weimar republic).

Broward Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer said the newspaper flouted her order that portions of a school district report about Cruz should remain shielded from the public. In the future, she declared, she will consider listing exactly what the newspaper can and cannot print.

Infowars Turns Readers Into Nazi Zombies

According to Reveal and the Center for Investigative Reportingreading Infowars will turn you into a white supremacist. It’s a racist recruiting tool, they insist.  Case in point: Andrew Anglin, the former hippie vegan who now edits The Daily Stormer.

Seeing the whole world as a massive conspiracy is a foundational part of the white nationalist mindset.
