- Lord Rothschild Warns Investors: “Geopolitical Situation Most Dangerous Since WWII” (ZeroHedge, March 5, 2015):

For Lord Rothschild, preserving wealth has “become increasingly difficult,” recently, as he warns, rather ominously, “we are faced with a geopolitical situation as dangerous as any we have faced since World War II.” Furthermore Lord Rothschild summarizes his thoughts briefly, eloquently, and ominously… as he touches on the global debasement of fiat currencies, disappointing growth (in light of massive monetary stimulus), and extreme stock market valuations. As Rothschild Wealth Management noted last year, equities are not well supported by current valuations, while monetary policy is limited by high debt levels and interest rates that are already close to zero… exposing equities to a potentially sharp correction.

- Innocent Army Veteran Framed by Louisiana Police and Prosectors Barely Escapes Jail Due to Cellphone Video (Liberty Blitzkrieg, March 4, 2015):

In a scene described in the lawsuit, Dendinger recounted a nervous night handcuffed to a rail at the Washington Parish Jail. He said he was jeered by officers, including Bogalusa Police Chief Joe Culpepper, who whistled the ominous theme song from “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.”Casssard, in his statement, told deputies, Dendinger “slapped me in the chest.”

Washington Parish court attorney Pamela Legendre said “it made such a noise,” she thought the officer “had been punched.”

Police Chief Culpepper gave a police statement that he witnessed the battery, but in a deposition he said, “I wasn’t out there.” But that didn’t stop Culpepper from characterizing Dendinger’s actions as “violence, force.”

What the officers and attorneys did not know was that Dendinger had one critical piece of evidence on his side: grainy cell phone videos shot by his wife and nephew. 

In the end, the two videos may have saved Dendinger from decades in prison. From what can be seen on the clips, Dendinger never touches Cassard, who calmly takes the envelope and walks back into the courthouse, handing Wall the envelope.

– From WWLTV’s investigative report: Charges Crumble After Cell Phone Video Uncovered

The following story should send shivers down the spines of all decent, law-abiding American citizens. It’s also a great reminder of the primary reason it’s so wise to videotape interactions with police. Many of them turn out to be egregious liars. Continue reading »

- The Chinese have put out billboard ads announcing the renminbi as the new world currency (Sovereign Man, March 4, 2015):

When I arrived to Bangkok the other day, coming down the motorway from the airport I saw a huge billboard – and it floored me.

The billboard was from the Bank of China. It said: “RMB: New Choice; The World Currency”

China-rmb-world-currency

Given that the Bank of China is more than 70% owned by the government of the People’s Republic of China, I find this very significant. Continue reading »

- IMF Director Admits: Greek Bailout Was “To Save German & French Banks” (ZeroHedge, March 4, 2015):

For the first time in public, though practically the entire world assumed it, an official from The IMF has admitted that the various Greek bailouts were not for The Greeks at all… “They gave money to save German and French banks, not Greece,” Paolo Batista, one of the Executive Directors of International Monetary Fund told Greek private Alpha TV on Tuesday. As KeepTalkingGreece reports, Batista then went on to strongly criticized not only the euro zone and the European Central Bank but also the IMF and the Fund’s managing Director Christine Lagarde for defending Europe much too much

Oops! “The Greek issues were not the best handled by The IMF… They put too much of a bruden on Greece and not enough of a burden on Greece’s creditors

Batista then urged Greece to directly negotiate with the IMF and favored the restructuring of the Greek debt that is been hold by the European partners. Continue reading »

- “There’s Going To Be Chaos” – What Is The Worst-Case Outcome Of Today’s Supreme Court Obamacare Hearing (ZeroHedge, March 4, 2015):

Today, for the second time since 2012, the fate of Obamacare lies in the hands of the Supreme Court, and like last time, it will likely be all about Justice John Roberts ‘ decision. Later today, the US Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case of King v. Burwell, the latest challenge to Obamacare, and one that could potentially leave it gutted from an unexpected direction. As a result, nearly eight million Americans could lose their health insurance depending on how the Supreme Court interprets four words in the “Affordable” Care Act.

- Hillary Clinton’s “Personal” Emails To Be Subpoenaed (ZeroHedge, March 4, 2015):

In the aftermath of the revelations that Hillary Clinton had exclusively used a personal email account to conduct state correspondence with diplomatic leaders around the globe and pretty much everyone else, it was only a matter of time before the subpoenas started flying. That time is now and as WaPo reports, the “House investigative committee is preparing to send out subpoenas later Wednesday to gather a deeper look into former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton’s nearly exclusive use of personal e-mails to do her official business as the government’s top diplomat, according to people familiar with the probe.”

As global debt rises off the scale, creditors stand to take a huge hit in a threatened tsunami of defaults

In a valedictory speech at the weekend of characteristically Latin American duration a mind-numbing three hours the Argentine president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, claimed that her country was the only one in the world to have reduced its national debt over recent years.

I doubt she is right about being alone in this “achievement” there must surely be others – but even if she is, I’m not sure that reduction in the national debt via the mechanism of default is anything to boast of. Only Kirchner could think this a matter of national pride. Continue reading »

US-China

- China Blasts Obama’s “Paranoid, Narrow-Minded, Arrogant, & Hypocritical” Foreign Policy (ZeroHedge, March 4, 2015):

Yeah but apart from that, US-China relations are excellent. Following President Obama’s barbed comments aimed at China’s new counter-terrorism laws (and their implications for US tech companies – as NSA spying ‘facts’ reduce China’s appetite for American-made IT products), Beijing has blasted back. In one of the least holds-barred undiploatic statements in recent times, China (speaking through its official mouthpiece Xinhua), calls Obama’s criticism “utterly groundless and another piece of evidence of arrogance and hypocrisy of the U.S. foreign policy.” And with that they are just getting started…

Full statement (via Xinhua)

U.S. President Barack Obama’s criticism of the upcoming counterterrorism law of China is utterly groundless and another piece of evidence of arrogance and hypocrisy of the U.S. foreign policy. Continue reading »

Alexis-Tsipraschange-we-can-believe-in
‘CHANGE’ … looks like its your turn now Greece!

- Greece Said To Tap Social Security Capital To Fund T-Bill Rollover (ZeroHedge, March 4, 2015):

As reported over the past two days, in order to fund the payment on various imminent debt maturities to the IMF, the cash-strapped Greek government has been forced to consider, among other things, raiding Greek pension to procure the required funds. We noted yesterday, citing Reuters, that Greece will use short-term repo transactions to transfer the cash, but one government official said they could not be used to repay the IMF.

Greece is tapping into the cash reserves of pension funds and public sector entities through repo transactions as it scrambles to cover its funding needs this month, debt officials told Reuters on Tuesday…. At least part of the state’s cash needs for the month will be met by repo transactions in which pension funds and other state entities sitting on cash lend the money to the country’s debt agency through a short-term repurchase agreement for up to 15 days, debt agency officials told Reuters

“Repo” because the implication is that this funding need is temporary. Of course, should it provide to be anything but, the local population will promptly exhibit very angry tendencies once it is revealed that the “radical left” government plundered Greek pensions to pay the IMF which could then immediately turn around and use the fund to pay the Kiev government, which in turn could pay Putin to keep the gas running. Where Greece will find an additional source of funds to replace this Pension “repo” was not quite clear as of this writing. Continue reading »

- Poland Cuts Rates More Than Expected, 21st Central Bank “Policy Ease” Of The Year (ZeroHedge, March 4, 2015):

Just hours after India’s ‘surprise’ rate cut (which saw the SENSEX surge and then dump to close red), Poland has surprised the market with a bigger-than-expected rate cut. Despite two-thirds of econmomists expecting a mere 25bps cut, the Polish Central Bank slashed its benchmarket 7-day rate to just 1.5% – the lowest on record. Today’s cut “makes up for inaction in previous months” after Poland held rate flat in January and February (but echoes Poland’s Oct ‘surprise’ greater-than-expected ease of 50bps. Polish stocks dropped on the news (but recovered), banks are weaker, and the Zloty is selling off on this news (pushing back towards record lows)

  • *POLISH CENTRAL BANK CUT LOMBARD RATE TO 2.5%
  • *POLISH CENTRAL BANK CUTS KEY INTEREST RATE TO 1.50%
  • *POLISH CENTRAL BANK CUTS DEPOSIT RATE TO 0.5%

Poland is seeing economic growth and disinflationary pressures leaving the Central Bank with a policy conundrum… Continue reading »

- This Is Why Obama Missed Netanyahu’s Speech Today (ZeroHedge, March 3, 2015):

By far the most important geopolitical event of the day, as straight-to-C Span-poluist-pandering as it may have been, was Israel Prime Minister’s address to congress, in which for nearly one hour the Israeli leader bashed Iran, stopping just shy of fabricating even more evidence about how close Iran is to developing a nuclear weapon. Yet one person missed everything including the standing ovation at the end: president Barack Obama. As it turns out he had more important things to do, such as the following.

obama meeting_0

What exactly is Obama doing in the photo above? As Politico explains, “Speaking in the Oval Office with Defense Secretary Ash Carter and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, Obama said he was unable to watch because he was meeting with European leaders via video conference.” A meeting in which the western world brain trust was discussing what… how to best confiscate the funds of broke Greek pensioners to fund the broke US puppet government in Kiev, so they can pay their bills to Gazprom for one more week using the IMF as a conduit?

Whatever the greater purpose, Obama had nothing but disdain for his Israeli peer’s proposal, or lack thereof.

“On the core issue, which is how do we prevent Iran from obtaining a
nuclear weapon, which would make it far more dangerous and give it scope for even greater action in the region, the prime minister didn’t offer any viable alternatives,” Obama said, adding that he had looked at the transcript and saw “nothing new.”

It got so bad, Obama himself took a swipe at Netanyahu’s fabrication of redlined “proof” before the UN general assembly: Continue reading »

PORN

- The Untouchables – Government Employee Can’t Be Fired Despite Watching 6 Hours of Porn a Day at Work (Liberty Blitzkrieg, March 3, 2015):

At the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), red tape is preventing the removal of a top level employee accused of viewing porn two to six hours a day while at work, since 2010. Even though investigators found 7,000 pornographic files on his computer and even caught him watching porn, he remains on the payroll.

Five years ago, the General Services Administration (GSA) spent more than $800,000 on a lavish conference in Las Vegas. They were served 1,000 sushi rolls costing $7 each and a clown and mind reader were hired for entertainment. Two managers were initially fired but got their jobs back after the MSPB reversed the decision.

The GSA was ordered to “cancel the appellants removals” and give them back pay plus interest. Meanwhile, the organizer of the convention was never technically fired. He was allowed to retire.

From the CBS News article: Red Tape Keeps Some Bad Gov’t Workers From Being Fired

It was just brought to my attention that prosecutors in the General David Petraeus case are suggesting two years probation and a $40,000 fine, rather than the one-year prison sentence his misdemeanor charge carries. If it were you or I, and the government didn’t like our political activities, the feds would undoubtably try to put us in a cage for as long as possible. Must be nice to be an oligarch. After all, insiders don’t jail other insiders. This is not a free country. Continue reading »

- CIA Urged Rebels to Assassinate Their Own In Order to Create “Martyrs” (Washington’s Blog, March 3, 2015):

A CIA “psychological operations” manual prepared by a CIA contractor for the Nicaraguan Contra rebels noted the value of assassinating someone on your own side to create a “martyr” for the cause.

The manual was authenticated by the U.S. government.

The manual received so much publicity from Associated Press, Washington Post and other media that – during the 1984 presidential debate – President Reagan was confronted with the following question on national television:

At this moment, we are confronted with the extraordinary story of a CIA guerrilla manual for the anti-Sandinista contras whom we are backing, which advocates not only assassinations of Sandinistas but the hiring of criminals to assassinate the guerrillas we are supporting in order to create martyrs.

Not to be outdone by his partner Charlie Munger (who offended many with his comments that “gold is a great thing to sew onto your garments if you’re a Jewish family in Vienna in 1939,”), Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett decides to take on Europe (and The Big Lebowski), and particularly the Greeks in today’s ‘perhaps it’s time to just STFU’ moment. Responding to questions about Europe’s future, Buffett compares Greece to a “dog peeing on the carpet” of Europe, suggesting Germany stop “rewarding behavior you want to get rid of.”

Buffett explains…

Its politics as usual. Israel wants the Arab states to be kept in the stone ages, period. This also includes the rest of the world.

As far as they are concerned they don’t even want anybody to have a light bulb yet alone a refrigerator or a microwave. They are control freaks. End of story.

Clinton Baston was correct in his analysis on Iran, they have a nuclear program not a weapons program. However the two sometimes can cross over. Continue reading »

Police State - When Did This - Become This

- Caught on Video – LAPD Guns Down Homeless Man in Broad Daylight (Liberty Blitzkrieg, March 2, 2015):

The following video of LAPD officers gunning down a homeless man in broad daylight is rightly getting a lot of attention. It’s not as if it was one officer dealing with a dangerous situation who panicked. There was a mob of police officers surrounding the victim, and rather than dealing with the situation like courageous, decent adults, they went ahead and treated the man like target practice.

As we see with oligarch theft, this is the sort of thing you can expect more of when certain above-the-law groups in society fail to be held accountable for their actions.

WARNING: Graphic material and explicit language.

Absolutely disgusting.

hillary leak teaser

- hdr22@clintonemail.com – How A Romanian Hacker Exposed Hillary Clinton’s Secret Email Life (ZeroHedge, March 3, 2015):

While the Hillary Clinton email fiasco is sure to be the talk of the town for the next few days, weeks, and months and may have seriously jeopardized the former SecState’s chances at becoming America’s next president, an even more important story is how the revelation that Hillary exclusively used a private, unencrypted and unsupervised email for 4 years of state-level, official business communications, emerged in the first place.

The answer, shockingly, comes courtesy of a Romanian hacker who was known by the handle “Guccifer”, and who is currently serving time in a Bucharest prison for his online attacks against countless public figures including the infamous leaks of George W. Bush personal paintings. Continue reading »
