Nigel Farage Batters Obama: "He Came To Britain And Behaved Disgracefully"

"Well ultimately let me say this, Vladimir Putin behaved in a more statesmanlike manner than President Obama did in this referendum campaign. Obama came to Britain and I think behaved disgracefully, telling us we'd be at the back of the queue. Treating us, America's strongest, oldest ally, in this extraordinary way. Vladimir Putin maintained his silence throughout the whole campaign."

The Accusations Begin: David Cameron Blames Brexit On Merkel And EU "Immigration Failure"

David Cameron told European leaders he lost the EU referendum because they failed to address public concerns over immigration, as tensions rose ahead of looming Brexit negotiations. The British PM said that fears of mass immigration were "a driving factor" behind the vote and free movement would have to be addressed in Brexit talks. He was mostly referring to Angela Merkel who blocked British demands before the referendum for an "emergency brake" on migrant numbers.

Bernie Sanders: The World Is Rejecting Globalization

"The global economy is not working for the majority of people in our country and the world. This is an economic model developed by the economic elite to benefit the economic elite. We need real change... We also need a president who respects the democratic rights of the people, and who will fight for an economy that protects the interests of working people, not just Wall Street... and other powerful special interests."

"We The Prisoners": The Demise Of The Fourth Amendment

Aided and abetted by the legislatures, the courts and Corporate America, the government has been busily rewriting the contract (a.k.a. the Constitution) that establishes the citizenry as the masters and agents of the government as the servants. We are now only as good as we are useful, and our usefulness is calculated on an economic scale by how much we are worth - in terms of profit and resale value - to our “owners.” Under the new terms of this one-sided agreement, the government and its many operatives have all the privileges and rights and “we the prisoners” have none.

Farage Slams The EU Parliament: "You're Not Laughing Now Are You?"

In his first appearance in European Parliament since the Brexit vote, UKIP leader Nigel Farage was greeted with raucous jeers and boos (presumably for enabling The Brits to exercise their democratic right to self-determination). Once EU President Martin Schulz had demanded (ironically) that they listen, Farage began his 'victory' speech by reminding his so-called peers of their laughter when he first suggested UK should leave The EU - "you're not laughing now... are you!"

Doug Casey Debunks The Common Excuses for "Staying" In One Country

"I would like to reemphasize that it’s pure foolishness to have your loyalties dictated by the lines on a map or the dictates of some ruler. The nation-state itself is on its way out. The world will increasingly be aligned with what we call phyles, groups of people who consider themselves countrymen based on their interests and values, not on which government's ID they share. I believe the sooner you start thinking that way, the freer, the richer, and the more secure you will become. The most important first step is to get out of the danger zone."

In Gold We Trust, 2016 Edition

"...the increasing desperation of central bankers and their willingness to boost inflation at all cost is going to lead to a plethora of unintended consequences, all of which are likely to boost the gold price."

WTF Chart Of The Day: When Central Planning Fails

Things have not been going according to plan for Kuroda-san and his policy-making 'Peter-Pan's in Japan. Since The Bank of Japan unleashed NIRP on its 'saving' community - which, according to the textbooks would force money to reach for riskier investments, pumping stocks up, or flush cash into inflationary consumption - stock prices have collapsed and bond prices have exploded... In fact, in six months, bonds are outperforming stocks by a central-bank-credibility-crushing 70%!!!

Juncker Refuses To Speak English In Address To EU Parliament

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker didn't speak English Tuesday as he lamented the U.K.'s departure from the bloc. Juncker's official speech to EU lawmakers was made only in French and German. He did, however, respond to hecklers among the British EU lawmakers in English. Previously, Juncker has often used the EU's most widely spoken and written language as well, particularly when addressing issues close to British hearts.

The Crackdown Begins: Chinese Bank Sues To Seize Vancouver Real Estate Assets

China CITIC Bank Corp Ltd has launched a Canadian lawsuit to try to seize the assets of a Chinese citizen the bank claims took out a multimillion-dollar loan in China then fled to Canada. The defendant, Shibiao Yan, owns three multimillion-dollar properties in a Vancouver suburb and lives in a $3-million Vancouver home owned by his wife, according to court documents.

Clinton's Plan For Millennials: Loan Forgiveness

So there we have it, Hillary Clinton will pull millennials out of from the basement of their parents house and into the world of business simply by allowing loan deferments that don't accumulate interest. Just as long as nobody ever addresses the core issues that are driving millennials into debt with no real opportunity to repay that debt to begin with, the status quo will continue to survive, and the politicians will all be left scratching their head as to why these programs just aren't working. Once again, the Federal Reserve and its monetary polices are left intact, and the politicians won't ever be forced to make any real fiscal reforms - that would just be too difficult.

MythBusted - Rising "Not In Labor Force" Only Partly Due To Retiring Boomers

The changing source of not in labor force is exactly opposite of the historical norm and opposite conventional wisdom.  It is also an economic cancer as these millions from among the 16-54 are not building job skills, savings, or self sufficiency.  They will not be home buyers nor drive economic activity.  They will essentially be a lifelong societal burden.
