Last week, Nazimuddin Samad sat at his computer at home and penned a few critical lines against the Islamist drift of his country, Bangladesh. The day after, Samad was approached by four men shouting "Allahu Akbar!" ("Allah is great!") and hacked him to death with machetes. But this and other shocking killings have not been worth of a single line in Europe's newspapers. Is it because these bloggers are less famous than the cartoonists murdered at Charlie Hebdo? Is it because their stories did not come from the City of Light, Paris, but from one of the poorest and darkest cities in the world, Dhaka? No, it is because the West has capitulated on freedom of expression.
2016 has been a tempestuous year for Serepta shareholders. From over $40 to just $10 and then the miracle ramp from february back to $25 before the writing on the wall ahead of last night's FDA decision and now - following yesterday's monstrous short-squeeze (36% surge), a 50% collapse to $8 - a 4 year low for yet another Biotech darling of old. This morning's collapse comes after the FDA voted that SRPT's muscular dystrophy drug was not effective...
"If you care about something, you have to be willing to risk it all — your reputation, your values, your business — for the greater good. The post on Ben & Jerry's website said the protests are just a start to make sure the peoples' voices are heard. Sometimes, when something really matters, you have to put your body on the line. You have to take a stand.
Why do they hate Donald Trump? Why has the Establishment pulled out all the stops in an effort to smear him, stop him, and crush him underfoot?
Lars Schall explores the time-honored tradition of following the money in an attempt to discover answers to yet unresolved questions regarding the terrorist attacks of 9/11 in New York City. Mr. Schall is an independent investigative journalist that has produced many hard-hitting pieces regarding Central Bankers' manipulation of gold prices, and the failure of the US Central Bank (The Federal Reserve) to return all of Germany's gold reserves in the past.
Members of the GOP foreign policy establishment are open to supporting Hillary Clinton for president if that’s what it takes to prevent Donald Trump from becoming commander in chief. As The Hill reports, a number of prominent Republicans who signed a scathing open letter denouncing Trump said they aren’t wavering from their opposition to him..."Donald Trump is not a Republican. ... He is a caricature of classless wealth. ... He is a caricature of the ugly American... I’ll never support Trump, period. If the only choices I’m offered is between Hillary and Trump, I’ll go for Hillary,”
It’s been observed for quite some time that Google isn’t just a private corporate behemoth, but that its executives are often times more intricately involved in U.S. foreign policy than most people would find appropriate. It’d be one thing if this support was for a sane and humanitarian foreign policy, but we all know it’s precisely the opposite. In fact, certain Google executives have demonstrated a particular interest in overthrowing governments throughout the Middle East, which has achieved nothing but sow chaos and result in the creation of powerful new terrorists groups such as ISIS.
The American presstitutes are captives of their own propaganda and are now surprised at the failure of their propagandistic predictions. Having stripped the Islamic State of offensive capability and liberated Syria from the Washington-supported terrorists, Putin has now shifted to diplomacy. If peace fails in Syria, the failure cannot be blamed on Russia.
We were hoping that Mr. Cohen, who surely would not want his name dragged back into another insider trading scandal as he prepares to move back to managing other people's money which he will be allowed to do in two years time, now that the SEC has granted him a reprieve from the isolation of a family office, will provide us with the required information, the same information which several years ago was material enough for the Feds to unleash the most historic crackdown on a legendary hedge fund in modern capital market history.
Has that proud 18th century boast of Americans, "Here, sir, the people rule!" given way to the rule of the oligarchs?
So-called political pundits are a ubiquitous sight on mainstream news, particularly during the run-up to a presidential campaign — but their ties to the candidates they analyze remain obfuscated, downplayed, or altogether left out by host networks.
The Threat of Nuclear War Is Now HIGHER Than During the Soviet Era
Speaking of the need for citizen participation in our national politics in his final State of the Union address, President Obama said, “Our brand of democracy is hard.” A more accurate characterization might have been: “Our brand of democracy is cold hard cash.” Cash, mountains of it, is increasingly the necessary tool for presidential candidates. Several Powerball jackpots could already be fueled from the billions of dollars in contributions in play in election 2016. When considering the present donation season, however, the devil lies in the details, which is why the details follow.
Tom DeMark: "Today Is An Interim Low" Followed By A 5-8% Rebound, Then Another Selloff; China To Fall FurtherSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 01/20/2016 21:49 -0400
We're going to have a two-step affair: a low today, maybe tomorrow and then we rally and people take a deep breath. After we see that rally, maybe anywhere from a week and a half to three weeks, we decline again and I think that's coincident with the Shanghai Composite and the Hang Seng Index declining.
