War Party On The Run - The Roots Of The Anti-Trump, Anti-Sanders Camps In Both Parties





We are hearing the voices of the Mushy Moderate Middle rise up in defense of the status quo: Democrats like the Washington courtier Dana Milbank are warning us against Sanders, while the neocons to a man are railing against the Trumpist Temptation. This should be enough to tell us what is the right road to take and what our answer to the Mushy Middletarians must be: Extremism in defense of peace is no vice – and moderation in the fight against the War Party is no virtue!

ISIS Planning To Build Navy, NATO Commander Imagines





“I think it won’t be a planned, horrible mischievous act, I think it will be an act which is almost a mistake, or it will be an act of random terrorism that will suddenly have extraordinary implications for the Western world."

Chart Of The Day: $17 Trillion In Student Debt By 2030





Student Loan Debt is a cancer for our society. This misconception that getting a college education equals a steady career has been dashed by the recession. For-profit colleges pray on undereducated and low-income individuals. Text book prices have risen exponentially while the cost of a quality education has as well. This industry of education is going backwards, and will one day burst – will that happen soon?

Indictment Looms As FBI Declares 22 Clinton Home-Server Emails "Top Secret"





Just as we warned, and she mush have known, it appears at least 22 of the emails found on Hillary Clinton's private email server have been declared "top secret" by The FBI (but will not be releasing the contents) according to AP. The revelation comes just three days before the Iowa presidential nominating caucuses in which Clinton is a candidate. As we previously noted, the implications are tough for The DoJ - if they indict they crush their own candidate's chances of the Presidency, if they do not - someone will leak the details and the FBI will revolt...

Helicopter Money Arrives: Switzerland To Hand Out $2500 Monthly To All Citizens





With Citi's chief economist proclaiming "only helicopter money can save the world now," and the Bank of England pre-empting paradropping money concerns, it appears that Australia's largest investment bank's forecast that money-drops were 12-18 months away was too conservative. While The Finns consider a "basic monthly income" for the entire population, Swiss residents are to vote on a countrywide referendum about a radical plan to pay every single adult a guaranteed income of around $2500 per month, with authorities insisting that people will still want to find a job.

BofA Presents The 4 "D's" Of Deflationary Doom





"The nominal GDP of the industrialized world has grown just 4.1% since the lows of Q1’2009, one of the tiniest, deflationary expansions ever. And while asset prices are up significantly since their 2008/09 lows, the underlying message from Wall Street in recent years has been doggedly deflationary."

Who Can Afford The American Dream? "Rental Rates Have Reached Apocalyptic Levels"





That American Dream thing is a going up in smoke. Upward mobility has stalled, and stagnation is setting in. Skyrocketing costs and shrinking opportunity are meeting head on with full on economic disaster.

Weekend Reading: Mental Floss





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.

The BoJ "Gift" Is A One Day Reprieve - Use It Wisely





By surprising markets with a move to a negative deposit rate, the Bank of Japan gave investors temporary reprieve, providing a much needed opportunity to pare portfolio risk at better prices. Unfortunately, the improvement in financial asset prices will be short-lived; except, of course, for long-maturity Treasuries.
