Clinton Unveils "Bold" Plan For Pharma: Drug Price Controls

In yet another fit of populist rage, Hillary Clinton is set to unveil her 'fairness doctrine' for the drug industry. As Reuters reports, Clinton will create an "aggressive new set of enforcement tools," including the ability to levy fines and impose penalties on manufacturers when there has been an "unjustified, outlier price increase." In other words - government-imposed price controls - ask the Venezuelans how that ends...

The Secret Global Court: Why Corporate Criminals & Corrupt Politicians Desperately Want TPP

Obama needs to ensure he gets well compensated after leaving office for a job well done protecting, defending and further enriching the global oligarch class. This is precisely why he’s so adamant about passing the TPP during the upcoming lame duck session of Congress, when he knows “representatives” who no longer face reelection can be coerced or bribed into voting for this monumental public betrayal. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) ins’t really a free trade deal, it’s a way for global oligarchs to consolidate, grow and protect their enormous wealth. The whole thing is absolutely disgusting and epitomizes all that is wrong and unethical about the world today.

Records Show Clinton Funnelled Taxpayer Funds To Foundation For Staff, IT Equipment

When Congress passed the "Former Presidents Act" in 1958, it was intended to provide compensation to be used specifically for the benefit of the former President during his retirement.    That said, discoveries from a Politico FOIA request suggest that Bill used his FPA funding to subsidize Clinton Foundation employee expenses and to purchase IT equipment for the Foundation.

Obama Granted Iran "Secret" Nuclear Deal Exemptions, Despite Claiming Otherwise

The United States and its negotiating partners agreed "in secret" to allow Iran to evade some restrictions in last year's landmark nuclear agreement in order to meet the deadline for it to start getting relief from economic sanctions. Which means Obama lied: the U.S. administration has said that the world powers that negotiated the accord - the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany - made no secret arrangements.

The Central Banks Are Now Ready To Launch Their 'Brave New World'

What analysts out there need to understand, whether they are independent or mainstream, is that a great shift in central bank policy and attitude is coming. Christine Lagarde at the IMF calls it the “economic reset,” some Fed officials, like Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart, state that central banks are entering a “brave new world.” These are highly loaded phrases that represent a drastic overhaul of the global financial system; an overhaul that is quite deliberate and inevitably destructive for certain nations and economies, including the U.S.

The Election Has Been Hacked: The Dismal Reality Of Having No Real Electoral Choices

Politics is a game, a joke, a hustle, a con, a distraction, a spectacle, a sport, and for many devout Americans, a religion. It is a political illusion aimed at persuading the citizenry that we are free, that our vote counts, and that we actually have some control over the government when in fact, we are prisoners of a police state. In other words, it’s a sophisticated ruse aimed at keeping us divided and fighting over two parties whose priorities are exactly the same so that we don’t join forces and do what the Declaration of Independence suggests, which is to throw the whole lot out and start over.

Obama Admits 10,000 Syrian Refugees: This Is Where They Are Headed

Yesterday, the White House announced that the US had met President Obama’s goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country; it did so ahead of schedule.  So where are they going: the top state destination for refugee influx are the states of Michigan and California.
