"Equities Will Be Devastated" Crispin Odey Warns, Looming Recession Will Be "Remembered For 100 Years"

"I think equity markets will get devastated," warns famed $12bn AUM hedge fund manager Crispin Odey in his latest letter to investors. Having been one of the biggest bulls of this particular central bank artificial-bull cycle, his dramatic bearish tilt (as we discussed what he thinks are the biggest risks underpriced by the market previously), is notable. Finally, Odey fears major economies are entering a recession that will be "remembered in a hundred years," adding that the "bearish opportunity" to short stocks looks as great as it was in 2007-2009.

Koch Brothers to Spend Nearly a BILLION DOLLARS on the 2016 Presidential Election

Who says you can't buy politics?

Wait, that's right, no one says that. Ever. Especially not in America where 91% of the time, the candidate with the most money (not who does the best job, who has the best policies or who even gives the most charismatic speeches) wins.

Face it. We live in a country where billionaires like Bill Gates are buying and pushing vaccines and a hearty population control agenda, Warren Buffett is testing out multi-million dollar smart grid enslavement, George Soros buys pretty much everything including civil unrest by the millions, and Michael Bloomberg is buying gun control legislation.

Sure, the elite can bet on and essentially buy whatever they want, from horse races to presidential elections, but why should we consent to being governed by the elite's tool of choice when it's quite obvious (and has been for some time) our elections are a paid-for sham and we have little say in the matter whether we vote or not?

Russian Ruble Extends Gains, Stocks Erase All Post-Downgrade Losses

"That'll teach them Russians" - oh wait... The kneejerk selling of Russian Rubles and stocks post-downgrade has almost entirely been erased and dip-buyers appear to be greatly rotating from US to Russian stocks today...

The Bonds Of The Third Largest Austrian Bank Are Crashing

Last year Austria's largest bank, Erste Bank, sent shudders of Credit Anstalt through the European Banking System. This year it is Austria's 3rd largest bank that is scaring investors senseless. On the heels of the Swiss National Bank's decision to un-peg from the Euro, Raiffeisen Bank's Swiss-Franc-Denominated mortgage worries have resurfaced (along with Russian/Ukraine writedowns) and nowhere is that more evident than the total collapse of the bank's bonds (from over 95c to 65c today).

How Capitalism Dies

In the early 1970s, there were about 200,000 new US businesses created each year (net of closures). Now, the number is negative. Why are Americans getting poorer? Look no further. No new businesses (net). No new jobs (again net). No new wealth. Under Obama and Draghi, crony capitalism flourishes. Real capitalism dies.

Merkel as Soft Cop in False Flag Offensive on Russia

At the World Economic Forum last week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel let the cat out of the bag with her sly offer, or rather bribe, to Russia. The German leader told delegates in Davos that European Union sanctions on Russia would be lifted in exchange for a «peace deal» in Ukraine. She promised a «free trade pact from Lisbon to Vladivostok».

That’s a bit rich coming from the bankrupt EU, but nevertheless let’s accept the assumption that Frau Merkel is offering something very juicy. Why would she do that, and right at this time when civilians are being massacred in eastern Ukraine?

In other words, Merkel is saying if Moscow capitulates to Western objectives of ceding Ukraine to its full political, economic and military control, then Russia will be «paid off» with respite from Western sanctions and can look forward to a tantalizing free trade «happy ending» with the EU. How generous of Frau Merkel!

Palin for President? Really?? Try to Make Sense of Her Bizarre, Barely Coherent Word Salad Freedom Summit Speech

Considering they’re probably just going to shove Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton on America in a way that can only be likened to political sexual assault, and that both sides of the aisle are brimming with corrupt, bought out puppets who work for the bankers and megacorporations that essentially own them, throwing Palin out there like this is easily the most purposefully distracting, desperate move the powers that shouldn’t be have made in a long, long time.

Scramble to conclude suspicious EU-US trade deal

Critics claim that the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) currently being cooked up between the EU and the United States could:

Weaken workers’ rights and put millions of jobs at risk;
Reduce environmental protection and food safety regulation;
Lead to more privatization of public services like education and our prized National Health Service (NHS);

Give new powers for corporations to sue European governments, including the UK, in secret courts.

They complain that world leaders are working alongside major corporations at breakneck speed to get this deal sewn up, and refuse to give details.
An especially prickly issue is the imposition of investor-to-state dispute settlement rules (ISDS) enabling foreign investors to sue the host government.

Russia In The Cross Hairs. Washington’s Threats have moved Into the Realm of Insanity

Washington’s attack on Russia has moved beyond the boundary of the absurd into the realm of insanity.

The New Chief of the US Broadcasting Board of Governors, Andrew Lack, has declared the Russian news service, RT, which broadcasts in multiple languages, to be a terrorist organization equivalent to Boko Haram and the Islamic State, and Standard and Poor’s just downgraded Russia’s credit rating to junk status.

Today RT International interviewed me about these insane developments.

In prior days when America was still a sane country, Lack’s charge would have led to him being laughed out of office. He would have had to resign and disappear from public life. Today in the make-believe world that Western propaganda has created, Lack’s statement is taken seriously. Yet another terrorist threat has been identified–RT.

WOW! LAPD Cop Lauded by Michelle Obama & Invited To D.C. Was Among People Listed As Grievances in Christopher Dorner's Manifesto!

Retired LAPD Segeant Cheryl Dorsey, a speaker, author and police expert, has laid the smackdown on the LAPD and Captain Phil Tingirides and his wife LAPD Sergeant Emada Tingrides, whom Michelle Obama invited to the State of The Union Speech last week.
Tingirides, it turns out, was a key player in the series of events that eventually led to the Chris Dorner disaster of 2013! In 2008, Capt. Tingirides chaired the three-member Board of Rights panel that upheld the firing of former LAPD Officer Christopher Dorner. In his manifesto, Dorner had pointed out that "Capt. Phil Tingirides was a personal friend of Teresa Evans from when he was her supervisor at Harbor Station. That is a clear conflict of interest and I made my argument for his removal early and was denied."

This Is What a Real-Life Economic Collapse Looks Like

Did you ever think about what your life would be like if the stores were closed? I'm not talking about a post-apocalyptic Mad Max scenario or a winter storm that clears the shelves. I'm talking about a long-term disruption of services caused by an economic collapse.

What if you couldn't run to Wal-Mart to get soap? What if the grocery store had supplies so limited that they were rationed out to people in such small amounts that the food you got was not enough to meet your needs? What if there were no diapers for your baby or aspirin to cure a headache?

This is exactly what happens in a serious economic collapse. It happened a couple of years ago in Greece, and it's happening right now in Venezuela.
