Probably the “most important” news today.
While it has nothing to do with capital markets, in what will surely be the biggest news of the day for most of the “developed” world, overnight Kim Kardashian West was robbed at gunpoint at a luxury residence in Paris by at least two men dressed as police officers, according to her publicist and police. Cited by the BBC, a police spokesman said the haul from the robbery, mostly jewellery, was worth up to €6 million ($6.7 million).
Kardashian West stayed at the luxury residence, behind Paris’s Madeleine church, at least once before, in 2014 before her marriage to West. “The loss amounts to several million euros, mostly jewellery. The total amount is still being evaluated,” police said. Continue reading »

Welcome to the 1%’s new airport terminal. Los Angeles international airport on Thursday won approval to build a special terminal to allow celebrities, sports stars and the world’s wealthy to glide directly from their chauffeur-driven limo to their first-class seat without having to interact with any of the general travelling public.
The airport’s Board of Airport Commissioners unanimously approved LAX’s plan to redevelop a cargo hangar into the US’s first terminal dedicated to the rich and famous . The airport said the Los Angeles Suite, which will allow celebrities and diplomats to avoid paparazzi, or protesters, by allowing cars to drop off guests behind closed doors, will be operational at a temporary facility within six months.

– Kesha Sues Producer/Handler Dr. Luke for Abuse Almost Leading to Death (Vigilant Citizen, Oct 15, 2014):
After several attempts of freeing herself from Dr. Luke, Kesha finally dropped a major lawsuit against the producer, accusing him of sexual, physical and mental abuse. The lawsuit also describes how Dr. Luke controlled her life since she was 18.
Kesha, who recently dropped the $ from her name, was mentioned several times on Vigilant Citizen due to the fact that she was one of the most obvious pawns of the MK music industry. The most obvious example is the video Die Young (see my article about it here) which was replete with Illuminati symbolism and laced with a sick message that was released just prior to Sandy Hook.
Although she was still firmly under Dr. Luke’s control, Kesha showed signs of “waking up” and wanting to take control of her career. After the release of Die Young, Kesha took to Twitter and claimed that she was forced to record that song.

– Selena Gomez Loves TSA Groping (Infowars, Nov 12, 2013):
In her recent hit song “Slow Down,” pop princess Selena Gomez attempts to make TSA molestation sound sexy and trendy.
Now that I have captured your attention.
I wanna steal you for a rhythm intervention.
Mr. TSA*, I’m ready for inspection.
Show me how you make a first impression.
What kind of sick deviant would think that being groped by a blue-gloved TSA goon could in any way be sexy? What’s next? Is Selena going to regale us with tales of how alluring it is to be molested by a rapist?
This is all part of the degenerate entertainment industry’s bid to make tyranny trendy.

– ‘The game is rigged:’ Matt Damon says he’s done with ‘fixed’ Washington politics (Daily Mail, Dec 27, 2012):
Matt Damon says he’s giving up on politics.
The actor told Playboy magazine that he feels ‘the fix is in, the game is rigged and no matter how hard you work to change things, it just doesn’t matter.’
Damon bemoaned the state of Washington as he completes a media circuit for the release of his new movie, ‘Promised Land’ which – coincidentally – deals with the high politicized issue of fracking, or drilling for natural gas.

Damon said he lost hope that the movie might have some impact in Washington. Continue reading »

– Old School Illuminati Symbolism: Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston (1999 video) (The Vigilant Citizen):
This performance of When You Believe by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston at the 1999 Oscars begins rather conventionally but quickly becomes an all-out Illuminati extravaganza, complete with a checkerboard floor, a pyramid and an “illuminated” occulus doubling as a solar deity at the top. Odd fact: both singers suffered a rather violent breakdown in the following years.
– James Cameron plans move to NZ (Stuff, Feb. 1, 2012):
Hollywood movie mogul James Cameron is coming to live in Wairarapa – and he is bringing his family with him.
The director of blockbuster films Titanic and Avatar has purchased two large plots of land along Western Lake Rd in south Wairarapa, where he is expected to arrive and live later this year.
Records released today from the Overseas Investment Office show that James F Cameron, of Canada, was given consent in December to purchase two separate properties, one 817 hectares and the other nearly 250 hectares.
The purchase price is listed as confidential.
Justin Bieber’s crew is staging a mutiny over the prospect of the heartthrob’s tour going to Japan. The tour is currently in Australia, where some crew members told manager Scooter Braun that they wouldn’t go to Osaka and Tokyo on May 17 for fear of radiation from the recent nuclear disaster at Fukushima Daiichi. Braun told the crew, “Man the fuck up and do the right thing by these kids.” Sounds like a melodramatic TV movie.
During this same meeting, the traitorous crew pointed out that Avril Lavigne and Slash, of all people, had canceled their Japan tours. Braun fired back that Maroon 5 hadn’t canceled theirs. The two sides are still at loggerheads, and the status of Bieber’s Japan tour is up in the air. A bunch of cowards, all of them! Japan has had a terrible spring and Japanese tweens deserve to see the Bieber.
“Oh how they once begged to attend my perfect banquet in the nude,” Sheen intones. “Now they just beg for the keys to my gold.”
He calls himself the “Malibu Messiah” and repeatedly refers to himself as a warlock.
Chuck Lorre, the creator of the program that starred Sheen for eight years, comes in for the greatest abuse.
“I see you, you little worm, I see you behind your plastic smile, your bitchy pout, and your desperate need to be liked,” Sheen says, calling the TV executive “Chuck E. Cheese Ball,” not using Lorre’s full name.
He accuses Lorre of “narcissism, greed (and) hatred of yourself — or women,” one of several moments in the video that should give armchair psychiatrists plenty of material to mine.
He says of CBS chief executive Les Moonves: “You gave me your word so you gave me nothing. It must really suck being your missus,” again mangling the name.
“A high treason has occurred,” he concludes. “The scales of justice are in a state of radical disarray. Together we must right this infantile wrong. Stay tuned, good soldiers. I’ll see you all on the battlefield. Dogspeed.”
– Charlie Sheen says he’s Jewish and proud (Jerusalem Post):
LOS ANGELES (JTA) — Actor Charlie Sheen, who has been accused of anti-Semitism, claims that he is Jewish and proud of it.
During a morning phone call March 4 to the Access Hollywood Live show, Sheen told hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, “My mom [actress Janet Templeton] is Jewish. Here’s where it gets confusing — we don’t know who her father was.
“But she is, in fact, Jewish. So I guess that would make me Jewish and my children Jewish. And Brooke [Mueller], my ex-wife, is Jewish. So I guess I should have rolled that out, too.”
A perplexed Bush told Sheen, “You’re getting accused of anti-Semitic remarks — you might want to say, ‘By the way, I’m Jewish!’ ”
Sheen responded, “I know, I know — stupid me. I just got caught sleeping, caught napping, which is rare for me. Anywho … But I’m proud of it. There you have it.”
Charlie Sheen Could Teach Wall Street a Lesson
Mar. 8 (Bloomberg) — It would take most of us a few dozen lifetimes to amass 2 million followers on Twitter. And yet Charlie Sheen managed it in less than a week.
Last month, CBS Corp. (CBS) discontinued the hit comedy show “Two and a Half Men” after Sheen’s public jousting with senior management over a binge that the wild-man actor has described as “epic” and “radical.” Since then, he has become one of the biggest names on the planet.
What is fascinating about this whole fandango isn’t Sheen’s public dramas. It is the way he has given us a master-class in modern media promotion and how Wall Street shareholders, who ultimately own his former employer, have allowed themselves to be so completely outwitted.

Matt Damon Calls Out President Obama, Education Policy
This is not the man he voted for.
Matt Damon sat down with Piers Morgan for an interview that will air Thursday night, and among other things, talked about his feelings on the first two years of President Obama’s administration. During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Damon was a vocal Obama supporter, campaigning for the then-candidate at rallies, promoting him through a MoveOn video contest and attending fundraisers for him.
Now, he’s not so enthused about Obama. When asked if he was happy with the way the President is running the country, Damon said, point blank, “no.”
“I really think he misinterpreted his mandate. A friend of mine said to me the other day, I thought it was a great line, ‘I no longer hope for audacity,'” Damon said. “He’s doubled down on a lot of things, going back to education… the idea that we’re testing kids and we’re tying teachers salaries to how kids are performing on tests, that kind of mechanized thinking has nothing to do with higher order. We’re training them, not teaching them.
Dubai is broke and will become a ghost town.
“Altogether, the Dubai government and its companies have more than $80 billion of debt. The emirate, which has a population of only two million, has been forced twice to approach its oil-rich neighbour in Abu Dhabi for the funds to bail it out.”
The Atlantis (!) hotel in Dubai
David Beckham and Brad Pitt are believed to be among the celebrities and sportsmen who bought villas in Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, a luxury development that juts out into the Gulf. But when the property bubble burst this year, residents saw the value of their investments collapse. Yesterday their situation worsened as Nakheel, the developer, and its state-owned parent made a request to suspend debt repayments.
The statement rocked credit mar-kets around the world and prompted analysts to question whether Dubai, the most populous of the United Arab Emirates, will be able to meet its obligations. The concern is that Nakheel will be unable to continue developing the Palm and neighbouring projects, leaving Dubai and its coastal waters an ugly, unfinished construction site.
When the 2,000 villas and townhouses on the Palm went on sale in 2002, they sold out in a month. Passing through en route to the World Cup in Japan and Korea were the England football team, and several players stopped off to sign up for £1 million properties on the artificial island, with Michael Owen, David James, Joe Cole, Andy Cole and Kieron Dyer, it was reported, joining Beckham on the beaches. Pitt and Angelina Jolie are also said to have bought homes.
Joe Cole was one of the few who got out in time. The Chelsea player sold his villa for about $3.5 million (£2.1 million) last summer as Dubai’s property bubble approached bursting point.
Nakheel is now in deep trouble and struggling to cover its debts. Dubai World, a government conglomerate that owns the developer, is $60 billion in the red. Yesterday’s announcement by the Dubai government that it wishes to suspend repayment of Dubai World’s debts for six months, including a $4 billion bond held by Nakheel that was due to be repaid next month, is the clearest indication that the emirate can no longer meet its obligations.
Work has stopped on several major projects around the city and companies have had to accept huge cuts in the value of their contracts. More than 400 projects worth more than $300 billion are said to have been cancelled or shut down as a result of the property collapse.
The 22-year-old officer was dispatched after residents in the New Jersey town of Long Branch had phoned to complain that a man in the Latin quarter was acting suspiciously.
When the officer asked the man for identification papers, he did not have a driving licence or other form of ID to prove his identity.

MUMBAI (Reuters) – Indian Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan said he felt angry and humiliated after he was detained and questioned at a U.S. airport, sparking an uproar in India among his fans.
Khan, 43, one of India’s best known actors, was enroute to Chicago for a parade to mark the Indian independence day on Saturday when he was pulled aside at Newark airport Friday, he said.
“I was really hassled perhaps because of my name being Khan. These guys just wouldn’t let me through,” he said in a text message to reporters in India.
After a couple of hours’ interrogation, he was allowed to make a call, he said, and he got in touch with the Indian consulate who vouched for him and secured his release.
“Absolutely uncalled for, I think. I felt angry and humiliated,” said Khan, who had just finished a month-long shoot in the United States for his upcoming film “My Name is Khan,” which is about a Muslim man’s experience with racial profiling.
