Udo Ulfkotte was a former editor of one of Germany’s main daily publications, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

Until his death he worked for the Kopp Verlag.

Kopp Verlag had been in some greater financial trouble and has been “saved” by the Bertelsmann Verlag and Bertelsmann Verlag is owned by ‘those’ who you are not allowed to criticize.

“Fake News” Facebook Lands On List Of “America’s Most Hated Companies”:

Facebook just can’t seem to catch a break lately.  From questionable privacy policies and mass data collection of its users to its handling of the so-called “Fake News” epidemic (see “George Soros Is Funding Facebook’s “Third-Party Fact Checking” Organization Targeting ‘Fake News’“), Mark Zuckerberg is pissing off a lot of people these days.  Unfortunately, when your entire business model is based on “friending” others, the alienation of various groups has caused enough people to “dislike” Facebook that the company has landed itself on 24/7 Wall Street’s list of “America’s Most Hated Companies.”

Coming in at #6, Facebook narrowly beat out Spirit Airlines, which, for anyone who has been left stranded by Spirit in Chicago’s O’Hare Airport in the middle of winter, that speaks volumes. Continue reading »

Cash-Banning Harvard Professor Slams “Ignorant” Negative-Rate-Naysayers:

“I find a lot of what is written by representatives of the financial sector, they’re very hostile to negative rates, to be kind of ignorant,” he said ahead of a tour of Scandinavia, where sub-zero rates first saw the light of day. “They’re talking about their short-term profits, and their short-term interest, but it’s a long-run policy if you do the homework, if you lay the groundwork, it would certainly work very well.”

See my commentary down below.


Bitcoin Collapses, Chinese Latecomers Get Fleeced:

“Capital flight” takes on a bitterly ironic meaning.

The People’s Bank of China announced on Wednesday that it is probing the major bitcoin exchanges in Beijing and Shanghai – BTCC, Huobi, and OKCoin – for a list of violations, including market manipulation, money laundering, and unauthorized financing.

This is part of the PBOC’s efforts to crack down on capital flight, a major escalation from last week, when Chinese officials warned investors – if you can call them “investors” – to be careful with bitcoin. That warning came at the peak of the spike and tipped the whole thing over. Continue reading »

Dead Unicorn Walking? Theranos Fires Another 40% Of Staff:

In October we noted that the death of Theranos has been long coming – ever since the WSJ’ John Carreyrou did a phenomenal job, starting about one year ago, of exposing the fraud that is Clinton Global Initiative-darling Elizabeth Holmes – but now following the second round of massive job cuts, it appears the final nail in the coffin of this ‘fake news’ unicorn is being struck. As Bloomberg reports, the startup will eliminate 155 more positions, leaving 220 employees (down over 70% from highs).

As Bloomberg details, Theranos Inc., the embattled blood-testing company, will fire about 41 percent of its employees after months of regulatory setbacks,lawsuits, and scrutiny. Continue reading »

Looting, Riots In Mexico Spiral Out Of Control Over 20% Gas Hike; Hundreds Arrested:

Four days after the first sporadic protests emerged in Mexico City, following the infamous “gasolinazo”, or mandatory 15%-20% increase in Mexican gas prices which went into effect on January 1, the mood across the country has significantly deteriorated, with hundreds of demonstrators blocking highways, snarling traffic, raiding gas stations, jeopardizing critical supplies, and looting stores as angry but impotent motorists lashed out at the price surge, which is only going to get worse as inflation spikes even more following the record plunge in the Mexican Peso.

Masses Shocked By Philly Beverage Tax Impact:

Check out this receipt and you realize why the country just elected Donald Trump. Liberal Democrat scumbag mayor Jim Kenney and his entirely Democrat city council thought it was a brilliant idea to ram a beverage tax down the throats of Philadelphians last year. They were doing it for the chilruns. It’s always for the chilrun. The ignorant masses bought the load of bullshit because they don’t understand maff. They understand it now. The tax went into effect on January 1 and the sticker shock is infuriating the ignorant masses.

This receipt for a 10 pack of flavored water shows a 51% beverage tax. It gets even better. PA has a sales tax of 6%. Philly already charges another 2% (for the chilruns) to make the sales tax 8%. These bastards now charge the 8% on the original price plus the beverage tax. Last week this purchase came to $6.47. Today it is $9.75.

Now ask yourself, who drinks the most sugary drinks? That’s right. Obese uneducated poor people who are likely to be scraping by on food stamps or very low incomes. Kenney and his liberal minions have fucked over their main voters. This tax is going to drive grocery purchases outside the city and hurt small restaurant owners. It isn’t benefiting kids. It’s funding the bloated pensions of teachers and government employees. Overall tax revenue will decline. Democrats are complete idiots when it comes to economics. Taxing their people to death is destroying Philly. Continue reading »

Washington Secretly Behind Cash Ban In India:

The Obama administration were behind the recent ban on cash in India, which saw millions of citizens take to the streets in protest. 

In early November, without any warning, the Indian government banned two of the largest denomination bills at Washington’s request.

Norberthaering.de reports:

US-President Barack Obama has declared the strategic partnership with India a priority of his foreign policy. China needs to be reined in. In the context of this partnership, the US government’s development agency USAID has negotiated cooperation agreements with the Indian ministry of finance. One of these has the declared goal to push back the use of cash in favor of digital payments in India and globally. Continue reading »

Trump Takes Victory Lap After Ford Cancels $1.6 Billion Mexican Expansion Plan As “Vote Of Confidence” In President-Elect:

Update: sure enough, here comes Trump’s twitter victory lap:

* * *

Trump’s recent “strong hints” to US-based automakers to keep production within the US are starting be heard loud and clear, and nowhere more so than at Ford, which just hours after observing the beat down Trump gave to competitor GM on Twitter, announced that it is scrapping plans for a new $1.6 billion plant in San Luis Potosi, Mexico after itself coming under criticism by Donald Trump for shifting small-car production south of the border, and announced it would instead invest $700m in a plant expansion in Flat Rock, Michigan.
