It's Official: Barack Obama Wants To "Help" You Manage Your Retirement Savings





The Obama administration officially rolled out its MyRA program. MyRA is a special form of IRA that ‘helps’ Americans save for retirement by making it easy for you to loan your money to the federal government. Despite misleading promises that these MyRA accounts are for “people who aren’t saving and who have a fear of losing their principal," the big catch here is that there’s only one investment: US government bonds... So with these MyRA accounts, when adjusted for inflation, you’re guaranteed to lose money.

US Flies B-52 Bomber Near China Sandcastles: "Get Away From Our Islands!"





On the heels of Washington's move to send a guided missile destroyer to The South China Sea to counter Chinese "aggression," the US reportedly flew two B-52 strategic bombers "near" Beijing's man-made islands last weekend.

Martin Armstrong Warns "It May Be Too Late"





"Our Presidents have been weakened and usurped by the insiders. Obama got to play golf with Tiger Woods while the nation he handed to the insider crowd. We need to rethink the structure of government but it may be simply too late."

The Deep State: The Unelected Shadow Government Is Here To Stay





America’s next president will inherit more than a bitterly divided nation teetering on the brink of financial catastrophe when he or she assumes office. He will also inherit a shadow government, one that is fully operational and staffed by unelected officials who are, in essence, running the country. To be precise, however, the future president will actually inherit not one but two shadow governments.

Ban Russian Track And Field Athletes From 2016 Olympics, Commission Urges





An "independent" commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency has found that Russia engaged in state-sponsored doping and more importantly, recommended that Russia’s track and field athletes be suspended from Olympic competition in 2016.  The "Independent" commission was led by  Canadian Dick Pound. Joining him on the commission was Richard McLaren, another Canadian lawyer and a long-standing member of the Court of Arbitration for Sport, as well as Günter Younger, head of department of cybercrime with Bavarian Landeskriminalamt. So two Canadians and a German made up an "independent" commission that now wants to bar Russia from the marquee event of the upcoming olympics.

Obama Explains Why He "Rejected" Keystone XL Pipeline Days After Transcanada Withdraws Application - Live Feed





After seven long years, and following the State Department's denial of TransCanada’s request to suspend its permit application, the Obama Administration, according to The Wall Street Journal, is set to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline (the controversial project to link oil sands in Alberta to U.S. Gulf of Mexico refineries). Speaking from The White House shortly, President Obama is expected to cite the urgency of climate change as a key reason behind his decision (though is unlikely to name the biggest winner from this decision..).

For WHO, Red Meat Is A Red Herring





Our booming green-industrial complex built up by administrations of both parties in the US is effectively using the United Nations, its thirty two “sister” institutions — such as the World Bank, UNESCO, and numerous “tribunals” — and hundreds of training and research centers. This huge international bureaucratic buildup is already employing over a million “international civil servants” to administer what our socialist visionaries hope will become the world government of the future.

Medicaid Chief Demands "Affordable Prices" From Major Drug Suppliers





In the next phase of the Obama administration's other war on drugs, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a letter to the CEOs of four large drug providers (AbbVie, Gilead, Johnson & Johnson, and Merck), warning that "manufacturers have a role to play in ensuring access and affordability to these medications," asking for "value-based purchasing arrangements." While there is no "or else" in the letter, the focus on 'significance to many', 'costs', and 'accessible' suggest an overhang of government intervention as new specialty drugs account for nearly a third of overall costs, but represent less than 1% of prescriptions.
