There has been an economic coup d’état in America and most of the world. We are now ruled by about 200 unelected central bankers, monetary apparatchiks and their minions and megaphones on Wall Street and other financial centers. Unlike Senator Joseph McCarthy, we actually do have a list of their names. They need to be exposed, denounced, ridiculed, rebuked and removed.
Remember the mass layoffs of 2008-2009? The US economy shed millions of jobs quickly and relentlessly, as companies died and the rest fought for survival. Then the Fed and the US government flooded the banks and the corporate sector with bailouts and handouts. The nightmare of 2008 soon became a golden era of 'recovery'. Well, 2016 is showing us that that era is over. And as stock prices cease to rise, and in fact fall within many industries, layoffs are beginning to make a return as companies jettison costs in attempt to reduce losses.
Conspiracies are real. There are many more of them than people are aware. Many government conspiracies are heavily documented by governments themselves with the official records demonstrating the conspiracies openly available to the public. These conspiracies alone are sufficient to chastise those uninformed Western peoples who go around saying, “our government would never kill its own people." False flag attacks are used by governments in order to pursue secret agendas that they cannot publicly acknowledge. It is late in the game. If you do not stand up for truth, you will have no freedom as there is no freedom without truth.
"We Need To Rise Up": Bilked Chinese Investors Call For Nationwide Uprising After Massive Ponzi UncoveredSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 02/02/2016 21:50 -0500
“If we don’t protect our rights, make appeals and take other drastic action within three days, we will recover little. We need to rise up across the country and let the government know that the people’s bottom line is the return of their capital. If it is not returned our movement will not stop!”

It certainly does feel like groundhog day today because while last week's near record oil surge is long forgotten, and one can debate the impact the result of last night's Iowa primary which saw Trump disappoint to an ascendant Ted Cruz while Hillary and Bernie were practically tied, one thing is certain: today's continued decline in crude, which has seen Brent and WTI both tumble by over 3% has once again pushed global stocks and US equity futures lower, offsetting the euphoria from last night's earnings beat by Google which made Alphabet the largest company in the world by market cap.
If there were any concerns that retailers and other vendors of goods and services are hunkering down on their ad spending, those fears can be safely swept under the rug because just days after Facebook's dramatic beat, moments ago GOOG likewise slammed expectations by beating massively both on the top and bottom line.

If the German authorities reject an "asylum-seeker," a local German newspaper reports officials will change his nationality and seek deportation..."He looked like someone from the Nigerian state of Ogun, whereupon we changed his birth." African embassies are paid for their help, receiving money if they allow deportation, which for Germany, is considerably cheaper than the months-long tolerance of refugees.
Eventually the prospect of recession that can’t be cured by the central bank printing presses will ignite sheer panic in the casino. Then the monetary fools running them will be reviled to the ends of the earth. But not before the lunatic 100X valuations of the FANGs implode like those of all the high flyers which have gone before. For the third time this century it is time to sell the bubble. Yes, do back up the trucks!
"I don’t want to invest in stocks because they’re crazy and real estate is a solid, safe investment."
“The real enemy of investors is not these fairly routine 10 or 20% downturns. The real enemy is the bear market that is associated with a recession or crisis, the one that knocks your equity block down by 40 or 50%. And actually it isn’t even the depth that is the real enemy. For most investors the enemy is time.”
It's all falling apart in Germany as frightened citizens load up on small arms and hurl grenades at migrant centers while at least 40% of the public now believes the "Iron Chancellor" should resign.
