"PADD 1 Is A Holy Mess" - Is This What Finally Drags Crude Oil Lower

“PADD 1 is a holy mess,” said Andrew Lebow, senior partner at Commodity Research Group in Darien, Connecticut. “It is very unusual. If a market becomes extremely oversupplied, like PADD 1, they are going to have to cut runs.” That is another way of saying refiners will have to stay shut, which in turn will force crude to  build up in various on and offshore storage locations.

FBI Director Comey Explains His "Surprising & Confusing" Decision To The House - Live Feed

Having stunned even the most liberal of liberal media outlets with his seemingly unexplainable decision not to bring charges against Hillary Clinton (thus nullifying six criminal laws), FBI Director Jim Comey faces an oversight bloodbath today in front of the House Oversight Committee. However, what few may not know about the "deeply philosophical, religion major" is that he spent three short years (just enough for Dalio to realize 'value') being "probed" at the world's largest hedge fund - Bridgewater, peddling "radical transparency."

Bill Gates And Other Billionaires Backing A Nuclear Renaissance

The nuclear reactors of tomorrow will not only be safer than the ones we already have – which are themselves safer than many believe – they will be much more efficient. Bill Gates’ TerraPower, for instance, has designed a traveling wave reactor, which utilizes nuclear waste. Another design, by two MIT researchers, again uses waste, mixed into molten salt. In short, the nuclear reactors of the future will utilize not just regular uranium but will take care of the waste as well – the same waste that raises so much concern among environmentalists and the general public.

Why Citi Sees No Solution For The Italian Banking Crisis Any Time Soon

"Any state intervention will likely be small, in our view, confined to a very small number of lenders and broadly within EU rules. As such, it is unlikely to represent a decisive fix of Italy’s banking problems. Retail investors will probably be protected as fears of a severe market backlash and subsequent deposit outflows may prevail. Such a compromise may limit the negative political fallout for PM enzi, but increased concerns among households about their savings are likely to hit the already-dwindling popularity of the government in any case."

"Incredibly Stupid" Juncker Opens Pandora's Box

Someone who’s not known to be overly bothered by accountability or integrity is everybody’s favorite wino, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. But Juncker, whatever else may be wrong with him, is not a stupid man. And unless I’m gravely mistaken, he has just saddled the European Union with a problem that could well trigger its undoing.

“Italian Government Collapse More Than Just A Possibility”

Four new polls show comedian Beppe Grillo’s Five Star Movement (M5S) ahead of prime minister  Matteo Renzi’s Democratic Party (PD) were an election held today. The next election will be no later than May 23, 2018. Renzi promised to step down if he fails a constitutional reform referendum later this year. The reform referendum will likely be held no later than this October.

A Furious Italian Prime Minister Slams Deutsche Bank As Europe's Most Insolvent Bank

Speaking at a joint news conference Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said "other European banks had much bigger problems" than their Italian counterparts "If this non-performing loan problem is worth one, the question of derivatives at other banks, at big banks, is worth one hundred. This is the ratio: one to one hundred."

A Period Of Major Civil Unrest Looms – How To Win An Inevitable Confrontation With The Status Quo

It’s quite fitting that the shameless police murder below occurred on the exact same day that Hillary Clinton was set free by the top cops in the nation thanks solely to her position of power and influence... None of this will be lost upon a citizenry which is already seething with rage and very close to a tipping point. Increasingly, the general public is coming to the very unpleasant realization that they live in a corporate oligarchy in which they are subjects rather than citizens. The more they are pushed into a corner, the sooner they will lash out in all sorts of ways.

It's Over: DOJ Won't File Charges Against Hillary, Ends Probe

Attorney General Loretta Lynch says she met with FBI Director James Comey and career prosecutors today and “accepted their unanimous recommendation that the thorough, year-long investigation be closed and that no charges be brought against any individuals within the scope of the investigation.”

Uber And European Robots Are Coming For Your Jobs

"He was kicking and punching at the machine. It set off all the alarms and sent an alert to the security guard’s mobile device. When that happened, this guy turned white and took off like a little girl."
