The Curious Story Of The Chinese Tycoon Found "Chopped Up Into 100 Pieces" In A Vancouver Mansion





Two days ago we introduced you to "the rich kids of Vancouver." We now introduce you to someone who may be one of these rich kids' dad. Or rather was, because Gang Yuan, a 42-year-old mining tycoon is no longer alive. His corpse was found chopped into 100 pieces in his Vancouver home.

"I'm 100% Sure" The US Presidential Campaign Is Being Tampered With





There is a growing recognition of the increasing tail wagging the dog nature of the internet's control over election outcomes. We recently detailed "the hidden persuaders" at work showing how the internet has spawned subtle forms of influence that can flip elections and manipulate everything we say, think and do. Confirming all of this to be chillingly true is Andrés Sepúlveda, who rigged elections throughout Latin America for almost a decade. On the question of whether the U.S. presidential campaign is being tampered with, he is unequivocal - "I'm 100 percent sure it is."

'Insolvent' US Government Spends $375k To Study Senior-Citizen Dating Habits





It was just a few weeks ago that the International Monetary Fund predicted that Saudi Arabia would likely be bankrupt within the next five years. Saudi Arabia’s financial position is deteriorating rapidly, and the government is burning through cash like a coked-up rock star.  The Saudis followed this up with plans now to build the world’s tallest skyscraper, which would stand a full kilometer in height. Seriously, what are these people thinking? What kind of idiot goes out of his way to blow through cash when he’s rapidly going broke? Why, the United States of America of course.

Rolls Royce Plunges On Bombshell Profit Warning, Dividend Review; Faces "Near Death Experience"





Rolls Royce just delivered a shocker of a profit warning as new CEO Warren East said the company will take a $990 million hit in 2016 attributable to "sharply lower" sales in the corporate jet space. The shares fell as much as 22% and CDS blew out to three-year wides.

Another Taxpayer-Funded Bailout, This Time For A Canadian Private Jet Maker





Once more in this new normal in which we 'live', the necessary creative destruction of capitalism is eschewed in favor of saving a zombie company that the CEO admitted was "overwhelmed." The good news for American taxpayers is that it is Canadian taxpayers - via a generous $1.3 billion 'investment' by the Quebec government - that are bailing out private-jet-maker Bombardier. Following aircraft projects plagued by overruns, missed deadlines, and scant interest from airlines, Bombardier posted a $4.9billion loss in Q3. Well never mind that, Quebec taxpayers now own 49.5% of the challenged CSeries program.

Osama bin Laden Sister, Stepmother Killed In Private Jet Crash





We didn't think much yesterday morning when we read reports that a 2010 Embraer Phenom 300 private jet, with a Saudi Registration HZ-IBN, crashed at a car auction site in Hampshire. Just like one year ago, the reason for the importance of the crash was made apparent only hours later.  Shortly after the crash, reports in UK media outlets, including the Daily Mail and Mirror, alleged that the $11 million jet was owned by Jeddah-based Salem Aviation, a company named after Osama bin Laden’s elder cousin, who himself was an amateur pilot and died in a plane crash. Among the other casualties: Osama bin Laden's sister and stepmother.

Some events make us question in which of the two we might actually be living in: what if it was some version of Bizarro?

It Cost US Taxpayers At Least $250,000 To Repatriate A Bicycle-Challenged John Kerry





The somewhat farcical journey home from Europe for Secretary of State John Kerry continues. As we noted previously, after breaking his leg on an arbidged Tour de France'-esque accident in which he hit a curb, he was flown to Geneva in a helicopter where he was "stable and never lost consciousness," which makes sense (unless as many have suggested his brain lies considerably lower in his body than most humans). But then the escapade got beyond unreal as The White House sent a massive "specially-equipped" C-17 airplane (used to carrying over 100 combat troops and equipment into battle) to fly him to Boston for surgery. We assume he is covered by Obamacare, since the cost of this rescue mission - assuming roughly 10 hours flight-time - is at least $250,000... and all to avoid an Iran deadline no one expects to meet...

More Clinton Cronyism: Selling Uranium Interests To Russia While Hillary Was SecState





"As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation... Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies including the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton... And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock."

A Billionaire Lectures Serfs In Davos: "America's Lifestyle Expectations Are Far Too High"





Billionaire Jeff Greene - who flew his wife, children and two nannies on a private jet plane to Davos for the week - has some words of wisdom for the average American: "America’s lifestyle expectations are far too high and need to be adjusted so we have less things and a smaller, better existence. We need to reinvent our whole system of life."

Welcome To Arcadia, CA; Chinese Billionaire's "Mistress City"





Having opened more than a few eyes to the rise of extreme wealth among Chinese billionaire's children in America, particularly Southern California, we thought the following brief clip would provide some more color on the the so-called "Chinese Beverly Hills". Welcome to Arcadia - also known as "Mistress City" - where uber-wealthy Chinese hide their money, kids, and dalliances overseas to escape the corruption probes and controls of their home nations...
