The Cronies, Opportunists and Thrill Seekers at Davos

The big global crony networking event of the year. The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland is in full swing and Vice President Joe Biden is in attendance as are six members of Obama's Cabinet.

If this isn’t the start of the crisis, just imagine how bad the real crisis is going to be.

William White is a central banker who used to be on the BIS management committee. And this makes him a key member of the global financial establishment.

It’s not too often that central bankers are particularly transparent with the public.

Ben Bernanke famously told the world in July 2005 that there wouldn’t be a nationwide decline in home prices in the United States.

Then just a few months later when home prices did fall, he told Congress that the adverse effects of the housing market were ‘contained’ and wouldn’t affect the broader economy.

He was dead wrong on both accounts. And one of the biggest financial crises in history broke out shortly thereafter.

Central bankers seem to always miss the crisis just around the corner.

Why do JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs want desperately to keep the UK in the European Union?

JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs want Britain to stay within the European Union and they are spending money to make sure the UK stays. Surprise. It is odd (perhaps not so odd) that so much of the banking and political establishment in British Europe (forgive me Britons, I was taught that one should never call a Brit a “European” but I’m making a point) is so vehemently pro-European Union. The lockstep (goosestep?) push by some to further integrate with Brussels, to give up even more sovereignty, to further reduce Britain’s stature in the world is striking.

National Shooting Sports Foundation head warns of 2nd Amendment’s ‘false friends and false promises’ -- Steve Sanetti, president of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, warned that attacks on the 2nd Amendment are going to intensify in his address to a crowd of gun industry insiders gathered at the annual SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

Bill To Allow AZ College Students To Carry On Campus In The Works

Rep. Sonny Borrelli, R-Bullhead City, recently introduced to the House a bill which could allow students and faculty attending public universities to carry their concealed firearms onto campus. Right now, the reagent directors get to decide the firearms policy for Arizona institutions of higher learning. House Bill 2072, would theoretically authorize carriage of said firearms provided the student or faculty member applied and received his or her permit from the Department of Public Safety.

DHS Official states: ICE Investigated .05 Percent of Visa Overstays

The Obama administration investigated just 3,000 visa overstays out of an estimated population of some six million illegal immigrants who remained in the U.S. after their visa expired last year, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official testified before a Senate panel Wednesday.

Fraction of Border Surge Illegals Targeted Under DHS Enforcement Criteria

While less than 20,000 illegal immigrants would be considered targets for deportation, since fiscal year 2013, more than 300,000 unaccompanied minors and “family units” have been apprehended illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Recent data hint that future influx will be even higher.

Goldman Sachs sends US into recession, promptly retracts report’s slide

Goldman Sachs has long been criticized, but rarely punished, for its role in the global financial crash. Despite being “too big to fail”, America’s “most important bank” Goldman Sachs may have done so this week, at least for a few minutes, when it possibly tipped off a new economic recession.

Arkansas teen says he was turned away from Marines because of his Confederate flag tattoo

Anthony Bauswell, 18, has the rebel flag inked on his rib. He said he got 'Southern Pride' added so it wouldn't be seen as racist, but the recruiter told him it was an 'automatic DQ'. The military prohibits all racist, extremist or gang-related tattoos. I guess the confederate flag SOMEHOW qualifies now.

DEA Hired A TSA Informant To Help Take Cash From People’s Luggage

A Department of Justice watchdog officially condemned the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration this month, following a report that the agency had recruited a Transportation Security Administration security screener to search bags for cash that the DEA could confiscate. The very existence of such a partnership highlights much broader concerns about the controversial legal practice known as civil asset forfeiture, which critics say contorts law enforcement priorities and props up a system of policing for profit.

The Bernie factor

Sen. Bernie Sanders has Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton by the throat. At least, that’s what the media and Bernie’s noisy supporters would like you to think. They cite polls showing Sanders throttling Clinton by up to double-digit margins in primary-gateway-state New Hampshire as proof that the doddering communist is putting the old mare in the rearview mirror. To be fair, some polls from those two states do suggest that — from a political perspective — Bernie is doing to Hillary what former President Bill Clinton did to any woman who strayed too close to his motorcade.

Michigan residents sue Governor Snyder after being lied to about toxic lead in their drinking water

In breaking news, the people of Flint, Michigan, are suing Governor Snyder, the city of Flint, and the state for injuries obtained from drinking lead-contaminated water – water which was been known to be harmful, yet which went ignored. As a result of this blatant shunning of public health, there have been legionnaires’ disease outbreaks (87 since June 2014 to be exact, 10 of which have led to death)

Getting the Idea of Government and Political Authority Out of Your Mind

Political authority, or the authority of State, or the authority of Government, is something the average person virtually never questions. Almost everyone goes through their entire life believing that the Government – although it’s almost always composed of provable criminals, cheats and liars – still has a solid basis for its political authority. Many people, whether left, right or anywhere in between on the political spectrum, are Statists: they think that Government has an inherent right to rule, using coercion if necessary. Yet, even a cursory examination shows that if a normal person acted like Government, they would characterized as cunning, secretive and manipulative, and either be diagnosed as insane, or locked up as a danger to society, or both. So why do people allow and consent to such a situation?

When will Hillary Clinton be indicted

A Clinton indictment could lead to a brokered Democratic national convention

With the revelation that Hillary Clinton stored above top secret documents on her unsecured email server, the question being discussed on the news talk shows is not whether she will be indicted but when. Two scenarios have arisen concerning a possible Clinton indictment under the Espionage Act and perhaps other, related charges.

The first scenario has Clinton being indicted before she locks up the nomination.
***
The second scenario has the indictments being handed down after Hillary Clinton locks down the nomination, presuming that she can fend off the stiff challenge from Sanders. Then, the theory goes, she is forced to withdraw from the race and release her delegates to vote for whom they wish. That hypothetical development means that the Democratic National Convention will be brokered.

The verdict was gleefully cheered by Eric Lemmens, a lawyer for Belgium’s Jewish organizations,” For me this is more than satisfying, this is a major victory,” Ibid. A major victory for Censorship. A Major Defeat for Free Speech... Western governments have piously lectured the rest of the World on how the West protects Free Speech (as in the Perinçek case.) The continued persecution of Dieudonne is an example of the hypocrisy and dishonesty of Western governments. Maybe they think the rest of the World won’t notice?

Davos elite alarmed at the prospect of 'embarrassing' Trump being the GOP presidential nominee 

The surprise emergence of a billionaire real estate developer who has proposed banning Muslims from entering the United States as the front runner to become Republican nominee for president is one of the hot topics of conversation among the rich and powerful at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

While calling Donald Trump 'unbelievable', 'embarrassing' and even 'dangerous', business executives and finance leaders said he had nevertheless 'hit a vein' with his direct talk.

Webmaster addition: Actually, "Natural Born" was clearly defined in "The Law of Nations" by Emerich de Vattel, published in 1758 and relied on heavily by the framers of the Constitution. "Natural Born" was already legally defined when the Constitution was written as "born inside the nation."

The inclusion of the "Natural Born" requirement for the Presidency was proposed at the Constitutional Convention by Chief Justice John Jay, who wrote, "Permit me to hint, whether it would not be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government and to declare expressly that the Command in Chief of the American army shall not be given to, nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen..."

Could the DC, Baltimore blizzard eclipse historic snowstorm totals?

***
If 18 inches of snow falls in Washington, D.C., then it would eclipse the "Blizzard of 1996" and the "Snowmageddon Storm" of Feb. 5-6, 2010.

The greatest snowfall for a single-day in Washington, D.C., was 21.0 inches on Jan. 28, 1922, during the "Knickerbocker Storm."
***
If 18 inches of snow falls on Baltimore, then it would tie the top 10 storm from Dec. 18-19, 2009.

The greatest snowfall for a single-day in Baltimore was 23.3 inches on Jan. 28, 1922.

Snowfall records date back to 1884 at Washington, D.C., and 1892 at Baltimore.

Record-breaking or not, the weekend blizzard will prove to be very disruptive over a broad area of the mid-Atlantic and perhaps part of southern New England as well.

The industrialists, bankers and politicians tied to the oligarchy have coded the system to tilt the game in their favor.

Idaho State Police Prepare To Release Jack Yantis Whitewash

In related news, our source who revealed the names of the two deputies who killed 62-year-old rancher Jack Yantis had submitted a request to Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman for the department training manuals - and the request was refused by their lawyers. This is quite odd since it should be publicly available information, which may explain the trigger happy cop's actions. It's already been revealed that the sheriffs were trained by U.S. Department of Homeland Security and also received FBI sniper training, which one of the killer officers had boasted about on Facebook at the time.

Video speaks for itself. Speech given at the Kennedy School. The US knows full well its allies Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey are the head of the ISIS hydra and are behind the terrorists that have killed innocent EU, Russian and supposedly US citizens. You Tube has tried to block this video. Download and share. Recently the US and UK appointed Saudi Arabia the head of the UN Human Rights Council. This action should speak volumes about US and UK complicity in the crimes of ISIS. The Saudi UN Human Rights Commissioner is now wrongly accusing Russia and the Syrian government for killing civilians in cities held by the Saudis ISIS terrorist army. The hypocrisy is astounding.

The growing nightmare of inequality at a time when the economy will be sparing few from harsh conditions.

By every meaningful measure, today’s elites are gods. This should make us angry. The notion that our 62 god-kings can be in any way constrained or controlled by Joe and Jane Citizen dropping their votes in a ballot box is too ludicrous for serious contemplation.

Now California state wants to ban sale of encrypted smartphones

California: home of the world's biggest technology companies, terrible bagels, and the only place that can suffer both drought and floods at the same time.

Despite the state's deep tech roots, California's legislature is considering banning devices that come with unbreakable encryption.

California assembly member Jim Cooper (D-9th) introduced the legislation -- bill 1681 -- which requires any smartphone manufactured "on or after January 1, 2017, and sold in California after that date" to be "capable of being decrypted and unlocked by its manufacturer or its operating system provider."

Any smartphone that couldn't be decrypted on-demand would subject a seller to a $2,500 fine.

Journalism is not terrorism. Criticism of the government is not violence

In a huge win for press freedom, a UK court of appeal ruled that the detention of journalist Glenn Greenwald’s partner, David Miranda, under the Terrorism Act violated his human rights as a journalist. Perhaps more importantly, though, the court rebuked the government’s unprecedented and dangerous definition of “terrorism” that would have encompassed all sorts of actions regularly made by law-abiding citizens.

Miranda was detained and interrogated for almost nine hours without a lawyer at Heathrow airport in 2013 while returning to his home in Brazil after visiting Academy award-winning filmmaker Laura Poitras in Germany. He was assisting her and Greenwald’s reporting on the Snowden documents; Greenwald was working for the Guardian at the time.

The court overruled a part of a prior ruling, making clear that “the stop power [under the Terrorism Act], if used in respect of journalistic information or material is incompatible” with the European convention on human rights.

On January 4th, Charlet was pulled over by police on Interstate 10 and was accused of being drunk. He was quickly ripped from his car and tased without being given any chance to comply and leave willingly. Police claim that he was “resisting arrest,” however, the video clearly shows that he was not a threat and had no chance of getting away.

LIMITS OF PRESIDENTIAL POWER TO BE DETERMINED BY SUPREME COURT RULING ON OBAMA USE OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS

The U.S. Supreme Court challenge to President Barack Obama's immigration policies could have an impact far beyond determining whether millions of undocumented immigrants can remain in the country. The case has the potential to constrain the power of Obama's successor to bypass Congress and act alone.

Should Obama’s order blocking deportations for certain immigrants be invalidated by the justices, the decision could hamper future presidents' ability to craft policy through executive fiat, legal experts told Reuters.

"The question is not the merits of the immigration issue,” said T. Gerald Treece, a constitutional law professor at the South Texas College of Law in Houston. “The question is what the president's power is.”

The high court said Tuesday it would hear the lawsuit brought by 26 states that seeks to overturn Obama's 2014 executive order that shields more than 4 million immigrants in the country illegally from deportation proceedings.

The International War On Cash

Back in 2008, I began warning of increasing capital controls that we would see in the future, as a component in the decline of Western economies (Western in the broad sense, including Japan, Australia, etc.)

Along the way, it occurred to me that, at some point, governments might collectively attempt to eliminate paper currency in favour of an electronic currency – transferred from party to party solely through licensed banks. Sound farfetched? Well, maybe, but what if the U.S. and EU agreed on an overall plan, then suggested it to other governments? On the face of it, this smacks of conspiracy theory, yet certainly, all governments would benefit from this control and would be likely to get on board. In fact, it might prove to be the only way out of their present economic problems.

It is like ‘Nazi Germany’: Federal officer furious after local cops rip apart his car looking for cash

In May of 2014, Ronnie and Lisa Hankins were driving back from his grandfather’s funeral in Virginia when they were targeted by a gang of police officers in search of cash.

The couple was then pulled over, and the officer quickly separated them before beginning his harassment of Lisa. In the video, the officer is heard badgering Lisa in an attempt to get her to consent to a search.

After going back and forth and realizing that this couple was not going to give consent, a second officer brings out a drug dog. As the Free Thought Project previously reported, data shows that police K-9s will alert almost every single time they are called out, regardless of the presence of drugs.

The Hankins’ case, on the side of I-40, was no different.

“We’ve ran a dog, and the dog’s alerted on the vehicle. So we are going to be searching it, OK? And whatever is in there we are going to find in just a second,” said the officer to the couple.

Flint Sends Overdue Notices to Residents Who Aren’t Paying for Their Water, Which Is Poison - By Ben Mathis-Lilley

Flint, Michigan, is sending out notices to residents who haven't been paying for their city water services. The notices say that services could be cut off if payment isn't received. This is a normal civic administrative practice except for one thing: Flint's water is so badly poisoned that the National Guard and Federal Emergency Management Agency have been called in to manage the situation, which has left residents drinking bottled water that's being given out as an emergency measure.

In a matter that, remarkably, appears unrelated to the problems involving the toxic elements in the water, the city had been enjoined last year from sending overdue notices because of a lawsuit accusing it of raising service rates improperly. But with that restriction lifted, and after a break from issuing notices over the holidays, "officials say they will again start sending warnings to those behind on their bills," the MLive site reported Thursday.*

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!! Talk about adding insult to injury!!!

Every single official who signed off on this water replacement scheme should be tried, and if convicted, serve some hard time in jail, as an "encouragement" for other officials in this country to never pull a stunt like this again.

'MORE REALISTIC' MODELLING OF TPP'S EFFECTS PREDICTS 450,000 US JOBS LOST, CONTRACTION OF ECONOMY

Assuming that TPP won't change employment levels in any of the participating nations seems a stretch, not least because previous trade liberalization has caused sizable job losses, as the new study notes. At the very least, it means that those using these models to argue in favor of TPP shouldn't be making any claims about its effects on employment, since these don't exist by definition. Capaldo and Izurieta are able to look at how jobs are affected because they use a different model, which they claim is superior to the one found in most other studies:

The US and Japan are projected to suffer net losses of GDP of 0.54 percent and 0.12 percent respectively compared to the baseline
Although those growth figures are worse than previous predictions, they confirm that TPP's impact on GDPs will be small. What's new in this paper is an estimation of the agreement's effect on jobs:

The 545 People Responsible For All of America's Woes

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don't write the tax code. Congress does. You and I don't set fiscal policy. Congress does. You and I don't control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices - 545 human beings out of the 235 million - are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

Insight: Electric vehicle sales fall far short of Obama goal

Back in 2008, with gas prices averaging nearly $4 a gallon, President Barack Obama set a goal of getting one million plug-in electric vehicles on the roads by 2015.

Since then, his administration has backed billions of dollars in EV subsidies for consumers and the industry.

Yet today – with gas prices near $2 a gallon - only about 400,000 electric cars have been sold. Last year, sales fell 6 percent over the previous year, to about 115,000, despite the industry offering about 30 plug-in models, often at deep discounts.

At that point, the government is free to help itself to as much of the country’s wealth as it wants. It’s an all-you-can-steal buffet.

Police presence was heavy, with uniformed officers inside the gymnasium, lining the entry hall, and posted outside.

But the prosecution of rancher Dwight Hammond Jr. and his son Steven also drew heated comments. Some speakers were incensed that the Hammonds had to return to prison recently to serve a longer sentence after a court found their original sentencing was illegal.

One speaker said the sentence revealed "an overreaching federal government." Instead of talking about who needs to go home from Harney County, she said, "we need to talk about who needs to come home."

The Oil Crash Of 2016 Has The Big Banks Running Scared

Last time around it was subprime mortgages, but this time it is oil that is playing a starring role in a global financial crisis. Since the start of 2015, 42 North American oil companies have filed for bankruptcy, 130,000 good paying energy jobs have been lost in the United States, and at this point 50 percent of all energy junk bonds are “distressed” according to Standard & Poor’s. As you will see below, some of the big banks have a tremendous amount of loan exposure to the energy industry, and now they are bracing for big losses. And the longer the price of oil stays this low, the worse the carnage is going to get.

The Right to Tell the Government to Go to Hell: Free Speech in an Age of Government Bullies, Corporate Censors and Compliant Citizens

snip: In totalitarian regimes—a.k.a. police states—where conformity and compliance are enforced at the end of a loaded gun, the government dictates what words can and cannot be used. In countries where the police state hides behind a benevolent mask and disguises itself as tolerance, the citizens censor themselves, policing their words and thoughts to conform to the dictates of the mass mind lest they find themselves ostracized or placed under surveillance.

Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned—discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred—inevitably, the end result is the same: intolerance, indoctrination and infantilism.

Thus, while on paper, we are technically still free to speak, in reality, we are only as free to speak as a government official or corporate censor may allow.
