Comey Forced To Admit Hillary's FBI Testimony "Wasn't Under Oath Or Recorded"

During testimony before Congress on Thursday, FBI Director James Comey stated that the FBI’s interview with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was not under oath or recorded, but was careful to point out for all the paeons listening that it still would be a crime to lie to the FBI.

Our Future Is (Literally) Crumbling Before Our Eyes

The sorts of predicaments the world faces -- ranging from over $200 trillion in debt, to our unsustainable addiction to fossil fuels, to our over-stressed ecosystems -- all require that we get deadly serious about confronting them ASAP, and make difficult decisions and trade-offs. However, our global leaders always seem to opt to kick the can down the road if at all possible. Short-term thinking and near-term priorities dependably get precedence over doing the right thing for the future. Tomorrow’s generations are thrown under the bus by selfishly motivated actors today.

Some Refugees Are Being Sold For Organs

Nuredein Wehabrebi Atta, a people smuggler who has been sentenced to five years in prison for his involvement in moving migrants, told Italian police that migrants who couldn't pay for journeys across the Mediterranean "were sold for €15,000 to groups, particularly Egyptians, who are equipped for harvesting organs."

Three Former Barclays Traders Convicted Of LIBOR Manipulation

The first bank to admit that it engaged in massive manipulation of the LIBOR rate was Barclays back in 2012, and traders are still being scapegoated tried in court to this day. As Bloomberg reports, five traders learned their fate recently, nearly four years since the bank admitted to the charge. Three traders were convicted, while the jury was unable to reach a verdict on the final two.

How To Spot A False Flag Event

It's time for those of us who have been reluctant to consider the possibility that our own government could actually be complicit in domestic terrorism in order to further a nefarious agenda to at least stop accepting the government and media’s version of these tragedies at face value. For the most part, the mainstream media is little more than a propaganda ministry for the federal government.

The TARGET2 Chart Shows A Breakdown Of The Central Bank Narrative

Despite the alphabet soup of bail-out facilities provided by the ECB, people still do not trust the system. In our view, the TARGET2 chart is the best way to assess trust in central banks and as it clearly shows, the narrative is failing. It seems impossible for Draghi to reestablish monetary confidence.

The Fed's 3rd Mandate & The Value Of Cash

Jan 2008: Bernanke "The Federal Reserve is not currently forecasting a recession." Jun 2008: Bernanke "The risk that the economy has entered a substantial downturn appears to have diminished." Jun 2016: Yellen "chances of recession this year are 'quite low'... The U.S. economy is doing well. My expectation is that the U.S. economy will continue to grow." Channelling Bernanke?

Stress Test 2016: Fed Says All 33 Banks Can Surive 70 VIX Without Needing Outside Capital

While hardly coming as a surprise to anyone, moments ago the Fed announced that all 33 banks have enough capital to withstand a severe economic shock, though Morgan Stanley trailed the rest of Wall Street in a key measure of leverage, Bloomberg reports. The biggest bank cleared the most severe scenario handily, with the exception of Morgan Stanley whose projected 4.9% leverage ratio tied for last place alongside a Canadian bank’s U.S. unit, falling within a percentage point of the 4 percent minimum. As a result of today's "test result" many banks will likely win regulators' approval next week to boost dividends.

State Department Disabled Security Software To Allow Hillary's Private Server Emails

Emails released under court order Wednesday to Judicial Watch show that in December 2010, State Department technical staff had to disable software on their systems intended to block phishing emails that could deliver dangerous viruses. The reason: The State Department was trying to resolve delivery problems with emails sent from Hillary Clinton's private server.

The European Union: Government By Deception

The benefits of the union flow to a select few countries, and to a select few within those countries. And ever fewer are selected as economic policies continue to fail. It is frankly beyond me to see why anyone would want to be part of that. It’s not about Boris Johnson or Nigel Farage or George Osborne, that is just more deception. It’s about being ruled by midgets, as Forsyth puts it...the very structure of the EU self-selects for sociopaths and/or worse.
