Russian Fighter Jet Flies Within 50 Feet Of US Spy Plane Over Russian Naval Base:

Tensions continue to escalate between the US and Russia. As a reminder, Russia conducted several close encounter fly-bys when first a Russian Su-24 “buzzed” the US missile destroyer USS Donald Cook in the Baltic Sea, and just days later flew within 50 feet of a US recon plane also flying over the Baltic Sea. The U.S. quickly responded and complained vocally to Russia, followed quickly by the first deployment of US F-22 stealth fighter to Romania, in close proximity to both the Black Sea and 400 km from the Russian military stronghold of Sevastopol on the Crimean Peninsula.

It now appears there was a third incident involving an extremely close encounter. According to the Free Beacon, a Russian MiG-31 jet flew within 50 feet of a U.S. surveillance aircraft in Northeast Asia last week, in what was dubbed “Moscow’s latest aerial saber-rattling” against American ships and planes by US defense officials.

This Is The End: Venezuela Runs Out Of Money To Print New Money:

Back in February, when we commented on the unprecedented hyperinflation about the be unleashed in the Latin American country whose president just announced that he would expand the “weekend” for public workers to 5 days

venezuela inflation_0

… we joked that it is unclear just where the country will find all the paper banknotes it needs for all its new physical currency. After all, central-bank data shows Venezuela more than doubled the supply of 100-, 50- and 2-bolivar notes in 2015 as it doubled monetary liquidity including bank deposits. Supply has grown even as Venezuela has fewer U.S. dollars to support new bolivars, a result of falling oil prices.  Continue reading »

“It’s Hard To Believe” – Establishment Stunned As Trump Gains ‘Wealthy, Well-Educated’ Voters:

Not only is Donald Trump likely to gather the most votes of any GOP Presidential nominee ever, having swept the East Coast and crushed the anti-Trump alliance between Kasich and Cruz even before it made the news cycle; but now, as Reuters reports, the GOP establishment faces an ever bigger problem. Wealthy, well-educated voters helped carry the Republican front-runner to victory this week – a demographic the famously blunt-spoken billionaire had struggled to attract in the past.

As we noted previously, with a number of states remaining including California, Trump is set to surpass current record holder George W. Bush, who received 10.8 million votes in 2000.

Obama Admits Couldn’t “Convince Americans Of Recovery”, Bashes ‘The Big Short’:

Despite his proclamation that he “saved the world from a Great Depression,” the fact is that Obama will be the first President ever to not see a single year of 3% GDP growth – but only cynical fiction-peddlers would mention facts at a time like this. In yet more legacy-defending narrative, Obama told The NYTimes today that his biggest failure was being unable to sell his success in putting the American economy back on track to the American people (no matter the actual realities) careful to blame Republicans for slowing growth “by a percentage point or two.” And then in a final affront to fact, Obama dismisses the conclusion of “The Big Short” proclaiming that he reined in Wall Street, overhauled the banking system, and made water from wine “the financial system substantially more stable.”

With regard his presidential legacy, Obama recently said he was proud of the healthcare reforms, and added that: Continue reading »

Good luck America!


John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz “A Miserable Son Of A Bitch, Lucifer In The Flesh”:

Is the establishment’s fervent hatred of Donald Trump starting a U-turn? It’s still too early to know, however at least one core Republican, former house speaker John Boehner, has made it very clear he is not a fan of Ted Cruz. At all. So much so that according to NBC the former Republican House Speaker told an audience at Stanford University Wednesday that the Texas senator is “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.Continue reading »

Congress Fixes “Sexist” Draft – Votes To Require Women To Register For Selection:

With all the problems facing America – both at home and abroad – The House Armed Services Committee decided on Wednesday to solve one of the nation’s crucial “problems” – a “sexist draft.”

As Military.com reports on Wednesday the committee approved (by a narrow margin) an amendment to a defense bill to require women to register for the draft.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, a Republican from California, proposed the amendment to lift the restriction on women registering for the selective service at a committee-wide mark-up session of the proposed fiscal 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. Continue reading »

All candidates are “full establishment” …

… and Hillary is the worst of them all.

You have no choice. None.


Bernie-Drone-kill-list

Did Bernie Sanders Just Go Full Establishment?:

Comments made by Bernie Sanders this week may just have blindsided and disillusioned swathes of his support base.

Some of those with higher expectations of the ‘peacenik’ candidate breathed a collective sigh of disappointment after he endorsed Obama’s extrajudicial drone assassination program.

At the same time, the Democratic candidate backed the recent deployment of 250 U.S. troops to further death and destruction in Syria. During the town hall meeting at Philadelphia’s National Constitution centre, he told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes that the people of the United States have a right to defend themselves. The warmongering endorsement, which could have easily slid under the radar, was slotted into a much wider discussion that included vote-winners like Planned Parenthood, violence against women, marijuana, and gun control.

“No Brainer” – Carl Icahn Dumps Entire Stake Of AAPL:

And just like that the “no brainer” party’s over. Remember when in January 2014 Carl Icahn laid out his extensive thesis on why being long AAPL is the best investment out there?  Or when a little over a year later, hoping for even more stock buybacks (even as he was decrying short term activism) he boosted his price target on AAPL to $240?  All that is now over and moments ago Carl Icahn admitted that the hedge fund hotel holding AAPL stocks, which consisted of 163 hedge funds as of December 31, has one less member, and he has sold his entire Apple position.

Q1 spending

What Americans Spent The Most Money On In Q1:

As reported moments ago, Q1 GDP which came at just 0.5% growth, was a lousy number in which virtually every component besides personal spending (and government) subtracted from growth. In fact, in nominal terms, Q1 GDP grew only $22.2 billion annualized, of which personal consumption was more than double, or $52.5 billion.

But what did Americans spend money on in Q1? To our surprise, Healthcare, Obamacare was no longer what soaked up most Americans’ cash in the first quarter (nonetheless, it was a runner up with $10.8 billion in spending). Continue reading »

Anything Trumps Hillary:

It’s all over except the shouting. That is, the primary election season effectively ended last night and now the actual shouting match between Hillary and The Donald begins.

This will surely be the most entertaining election in US history, and probably the most pointless, too. After all, Hillary wants to use government to make Government Great Again. And Trump promises to use government to make America Great Again.

But government doesn’t make anything great, including itself. It is a necessary evil that always and everywhere is driven toward self-aggrandizement and mission creep by the politicians and special interest lobbies which control its operations. Continue reading »

China “Wealth Manager” Disappears With $154 Million:

As China’s credit fueled craziness rages on, individual “investors” have been tripping over themselves trying to get in on a piece of the action, opening up enough brokerage accounts for every man, woman, and child in LA and pouring hard earned money into “investment” opportunities such as P2P funds.

This has of course lead people to game the system, recall Ezubao’s $7.6 billion P2P ponzi scheme that led to the arrest of 21 people earlier this year, and more recently the shuttering of Zhongjin Capital Management, which also led to 21 arrests on charges of suspicion of illegal fundraising.

Greek Default Looms In July After EU Rejects Greek Emergency Summit:

More Greece “Uncertainty”: Default Looms in July, EU Rejects Greek Emergency Summit

Those who thought the situation in Greece was solved after prime minister Alexis Tsipras suddenly caved in to creditors’ demands need think again.

Greek tax revenues are running well under expectations. A default looms in July unless the creditors give more money to Greece so that Greece can pay back the creditors. As convoluted as that sounds, that’s precisely the way this madness works. Continue reading »

Japanese Bloodbath After BoJ Disappoints – Nikkei Drops 1000 Points, USDJPY Crashes:

If there was a sign that nothing else matters but central bank largess, this was it. The moment The Bank of Japan statement hit and proclaims “unchanged” a vacuum hit USDJPY and Japanese stocks. Reflecting that Japan’s economy has “continued a moderate recovery trend” which is utter crap given the quintuple-dip recession, Kuroda and his cronies said they will “add easing if necessary” and apparently that is not now. Not so much as a higher ETF purchase or moar NIRP.. and the aftermath is carnage – NKY -1000 points and USDJPY crashed to a 108 handle!!

Russia’s Top TV Host Kiselyov Ridicules Merkel and Erdogan on Weekly Show (Video):

And gives a big plug to one of Germany’s leading alternative publications

Lately, Frau Merkel is everyone’s favorite punching bag.   For Russian state media, she is a staple of almost daily abuse.

The woman is roundly hated throughout Russia for her mind-boggling moral and financial support of the government in Kiev which waged, and continues to wage a vicious military campaign against civilians in Eastern Ukraine, with her very vocal, even giddy, encouragement.

German military estimate the casualties on both sides exceed 70,000 troops and civilians, with three times that number wounded, and let’s not forget the 1 million refugees, and the 4-5 million shoved in to wrenching poverty in the war zone.

Did we mention she was a strong favorite for the Nobel Peace Prize?

Well at least TIME magazine, a neocon cesspool, was sufficiently impressed.  They made her “Man” of the year, cause, they think she is a real hero.  Seriously, here is part of their explanation: Continue reading »

Man-Upset-Cry-Cancer-Patient-Chemotherapy

Chemo child abuse: Connecticut FORCED 17-year old girl to have chemotherapy without her consent… now her cancer is back:

Cassandra Callender, of Windsor Locks, Conn., was diagnosed with stage 3 or 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma when she was 17 years old. Shortly after the diagnosis in September 2014, she refused chemotherapy, and decided to look into alternative treatments to protect her body from long-term effects such as organ damage and infertility.

However, the state of Connecticut forced her into getting treatment against her own and her mother’s will. Her doctors said she would likely die without chemotherapy, and reported her case as child abuse to the Connecticut’s Department of Children and Families (DCF), who took her case to the state Superior Court.

The latest disease outbreak among vaccinated Harvard students highlights the truth about vaccine failures:

In case you hadn’t heard, there is something going on at the Harvard University campus that isn’t supposed to happen: There is a widening outbreak of mumps, and all the students who have contracted the disease thus far had already been vaccinated for the disease.

As reported by CNN, the most recent mumps outbreak began with a whimper in February, after two students were confirmed to have developed the disease. But within a few weeks, the number grew to 16, then 30, and now there are about 40 students with confirmed cases of mumps. Continue reading »

From the article:

“We are not very popular when we advocate for Europe.”

How come?

Here are some Jean-Claude Juncker quotes:

“When it becomes serious, you have to lie.”

“We decide on something, leave it lying around and wait and see what happens. If no one kicks up a fuss, because most people don’t understand what has been decided, we continue step by step until there is no turning back.”

“If it’s a Yes, we will say ‘on we go’, and if it’s a No we will say ‘we continue’.”

“There can be no democratic choice against the European treaties.”

“Monetary policy is a serious issue. We should discuss this in secret, in the Eurogroup […] I’m ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious […] I am for secret, dark debates.”


EU in trouble as Eurosceptic parties gain in strength:

VIENNA (AP) — Even before a vehemently anti-EU party won strong support in Austria, the European Union’s top official acknowledged that the 28-nation bloc was in trouble. “We are facing very tough times,” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told parliamentarians this month. “We are not very popular when we advocate for Europe.”

Those comments were reinforced just days later with the victory Sunday of an anti-EU right-wing party in the first round of Austria’s presidential election. Such parties are growing in strength and putting European unity under siege. Instead of moving closer toward the founding nations’ ultimate goal of “an ever-closer union,” the EU faces disconnect and drift as populists blame it for much of the continent’s ills.

Description:

Several refugees were injured after riots broke out at Moria refugee centre on Lesbos island, Tuesday, with refugees setting rubbish cans on fire and throwing stones at police, who in turn responded with tear gas. Reports from inside the centre state that the violence was sparked by authorities striking a minor.

The unrest started in a section of the camp where mostly minors are kept before spreading across the entire space. Columns of black smoke could be seen rising from the camp, prompting a deployment of the fire brigade.

Germany confirms departure of spy agency chief:

The German government confirmed on Wednesday that Gerhard Schindler, the head of the BND foreign intelligence agency, would leave his post two years early but provided no reason for the surprise change.

In a short statement, Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chief of staff Peter Altmaier said Schindler, who has run the BND since 2012 and is not due to retire until 2018, would be replaced on July 1 by Bruno Kahl, an official in the finance ministry responsible for privatizations and government real estate.

“The BND faces major challenges over the coming years, encompassing all aspects of its work,” Altmaier said. Continue reading »

Ted Cruz to Name Carly Fiorina as His Running Mate

And she did a “great” job at HP …

Yale professor on Carly Fiorina’s business record: She ‘destroyed half the wealth of her investors yet still earned almost $100 million’:

But Fiorina better be careful because her biggest business achievement, CEO of Hewlett-Packard, is widely regarded as a disaster.

She has been frequently called out as one of the “worst” CEOs.

In an article about worst CEOs in USA Today in 2005, Yale business Professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld said that Fiorina was “the worst because of her ruthless attack on the essence of this great company. … She destroyed half the wealth of her investors and yet still earned almost $100 million in total payments for this destructive reign of terror.”

An excellent choice!

CIA-Backed Artificial Intelligence Firm To Spy on Wall Street Traders:

Swiss multinational bank, Credit Suisse, will collaborate with data analysis firm, Palantir, to launch a trader surveillance program. According to Bloomberg’s Jeffrey Voegeli, the joint venture, called Signac, aims to catch rogue Wall Streeters engaged in illegal trading. It comes in the wake of a number of trading scandals in recent years that have cost banks billions of dollars.

Palantir was co-founded by Peter Thiel and seed-funded by the CIA. The company was funded in part by In-Q-Tel Inc., the venture capital investment arm of the CIA that has a long, symbiotic history with startups, the NSA, the FBI, and DARPA. In fact, In-Q-Tel specifically funds tech start-ups “to advance ‘priority’ technologies of value” in the intelligence community. The group has ties to Donald Rumsfeld’s Total Information Awareness initiative and is believed by some to have worked closely with Google in its earliest years. Continue reading »
