They Want to Destroy Trump & America-Gregory Mannarino By Greg Hunter On May 17, 2017 By Greg Hunters USAWatchdog.com Analyst/trader Gregory Mannarino says America is in conflict with itself.

Post Date: 2017-05-12 13:29:08 by cranky
Netflix isn't alone: Agencies and others are balancing demands for money against the fears of stolen data ending up online. Phones are the lifeblood of a talent agency like UTA, but on April 11, its IT department discovered an intruder lurking in the voicemail system and computer network and quickly decided to shut them down, sending agents to conduct business on their iPads. Soon thereafter a demand from a hacker arrived: Pay a ransom or watch the agency's most confidential data get posted online. It turns out UTA was lucky an outside cybersecurity firm was brought in and, after conducting a forensic analysis, determined that nothing valuable had been pilfered. But the ...

While Beijing is preparing to hold the One Belt, One Road Forum for International Cooperation on May 14-15, Xinhua has stepped forward to bust the myth that China's New Silk Road project is essentially a Marshall Plan 2.0. China's New Silk Road Project has nothing to do with America's post-WWII Marshall Plan, China's state-run media outlet Xinhua argues. "Why do Western commentators stuck with a Cold War mindset consider the Chinese Belt and Road initiative the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st-century Maritime Silk Road a modern version of the American Marshall Plan aimed at restoring Europe after Second World War?" the media outlet asked. ...

But that is on the back burner for now, because at the moment Puerto Rico is dealing with a nightmarish financial ...

Japan’s ‘oldest porn queen’ calls it quits at 80
Post Date: 2017-04-09 14:04:23 by Willie Green
After a decade of undressing for X-rated movies, the countrys oldest porn actor announced she will call it quits at the ripe old age of 80. Maori Tezuka, a former opera singer who made her debut in the flourishing silver porn industry at 71, attributed her decision partly to the lack of red-blooded lotharios that could keep up with her. Once the lights go on, you just do your best, she told local media. I have no regrets, but shooting became difficult when the actor wasnt my type, added Tezuka, who in true show business fashion left the door open for a possible return. It was never about the money for me. Ive already ...
Uber has allegedly been cheating both riders and drivers
Post Date: 2017-04-08 14:43:13 by cranky
Uber has a lot of spring cleaning to do, considering the many distinct scandals it has to deal with. And things arent looking up for the taxi company, as a new lawsuit brings up an astonishing new claim. Apparently, Uber uses a sophisticated software that allows it to cheat on both the driver and the passenger. According to the new class action suit found by Ars Technica, Ubers software manipulates navigation data used to determine the upfront fare price, showing the customer a higher price than the driver. This way, Uber can charge the rider more for a fare, while the driver gets paid from the cheaper, faster route. What allegedly happens is ...

Post Date: 2017-04-01 15:48:07 by A Pole
Russia's Central Bank purchased record amounts of gold in 2016, and plans to accelerate its purchases, retaining its spot as global leader in the growth of gold reserves. That's according to a recent survey by the GFMS analysts at Thomson Reuters. Russian economists explain the thought process behind the Bank's purchases. According to GFMS analysts, Russia's Central Bank purchased 201 tons of gold in 2016, more than the central bank of any other country. The Bank made its purchases over 11 consecutive months, with purchases accelerating to an average of 36 tons per month between October and November as gold prices fell. The analysts expect Russia to continue buying large ...
No, wealth isn’t created at the top. It is merely devoured there

Bankers, pharmaceutical giants, Google, Facebook ... a new breed of rentiers are at the very top of the pyramid and theyre sucking the rest of us dry ====== Rutger Bregman This piece is about one of the biggest taboos of our times. About a truth that is seldom acknowledged, and yet on reflection cannot be denied. The truth that we are living in an inverse welfare state. These days, politicians from the left to the right assume that most wealth is created at the top. By the visionaries, by the job creators, and by the people who have made it. By the go-getters oozing talent and entrepreneurialism that are helping to advance the whole world. Now, we ...
What I Learned From “The Art Of The Deal”
Post Date: 2017-03-26 02:58:31 by Gatlin
With the election of Donald Trump (your president and mine!), I decided that it has become increasingly relevant for us all to read some of his books to get an idea of how the man ticks. And so I picked up The Art of the Deal. Having done so, I can say that Im glad: for while some of the book should be looked at skeptically (as should some of what Trump is saying in his presidency), as a whole, this book will provide some pretty solid advice on business and life in general, as well as, perhaps inadvertently, reveal some details about Mr. Trump himself . This article does not seek to be a review of the book, so much as it is an article enumerating what advice one can ...

Titans of oil world meet in Houston after two-year price war
Post Date: 2017-03-05 09:53:51 by Willie Green
The biggest names in the oil world come together this week for the largest industry gathering since the end of a two-year price war that pitted Middle East exporters against the firms that drove the shale energy revolution in the United States. When OPEC in November joined with several non-OPEC producers to agree to a historic cut in output, the group called time on a fight for market share that drove oil prices to a 12-year low and many shale producers to the wall. Oil prices are about 70 percent higher than they were the last time oil ministers and the chief executives of Big Oil met in Houston a year ago at CERAWeek, the largest annual industry meet in the Americas. The ebullience as ...
When Mexican Aluminum Isn't Actually Mexican Aluminum
Post Date: 2017-02-28 12:21:05 by Tooconservative
In the final week of the Obama administration, the outgoing president filed a complaint at the World Trade Organization (WTO) accusing China of unfair trade practices. This wasn't a big surprise: Obama averaged one complaint against China every six months throughout his presidency. Indeed, Donald Trump's tough talk about China is really just a continuation of what the Obama White House had been actually doing for the last eight years. But this latest WTO filing is a little unusual. The U.S. is alleging that China, through a series of low interest loans and subsidized power rates, is unfairly competing in the market for aluminum. Over the past few decades China has risen to become ...

The popularity of Starbucks has plunged since they decided to take on politics
Post Date: 2017-02-24 12:07:49 by Tooconservative
As weve noted here in the past, supersized coffee chain Starbucks has decided to take a very public stance in the world of American politics over the past couple of years. Given the youthful, next-generation persona which they try to project in all of their marketing it will come as no surprise that this has taken the form of a decidedly liberal initiative. So hows that working out for them these days? According to Yahoo Finance, the companys popularity as measured by the YouGov Brand Index rankings has completely tanked. Starbucks brand has taken a beating since the company announced plans to hire 10,000 refugees worldwide in the next five years in response to ...

LOS ANGELES (CNNMoney) The U.S. Justice Department is investigating whether Fox News failed to inform shareholders about settlements made with employees who charged former chairman and CEO Roger Ailes with sexual harassment, a source with knowledge of the matter told CNNMoney. The investigation, which has been going on for months, came to light on Wednesday after attorney Judd Burstein, who represents clients who have brought sexual harassment charges against Ailes, announced in a court hearing that one of his clients had received a subpoena relating to "alleged violations of criminal law by Fox." "I was told by the U.S. attorney's office there is an ongoing criminal ...
The Real Reason Why Andy Puzder WonÂ’t Become Labor Secretary
Post Date: 2017-02-15 17:58:54 by Willie Green
On December 8, days after Donald Trump chose Andy Puzder as his nominee for Labor Secretary, I predicted that he wouldnt get confirmed. I didnt have any special inside information, just the knowledge that Puzders beliefs included the one idea conservatives would not not abide: support for immigration reform. Breitbarts Julia Hahn, whos now working in the White House, wrote a scathing piece on December 8, excoriating Puzder for supporting amnesty and flooding the labor market with foreign workers. It wasnt just that the immigration issue would sap Puzders support among the far right. It meant that the grassroots wouldnt ...

You understand your nation's financial health is nowhere near what your government, Wall Street, and mainstream news are saying. U.S. Dollar depreciation You're told the unemployment rate is 6%. You wonder how that could be when one out of three working-age Americans, 90 million souls, are out of work. You have relatives and friends not working, maybe several, and you notice it didn't used to be that way. The numbers sound to you more like Great Depression than Green Shoot Recovery. Your government puts inflation at 1%, but you see the ...
