    Two days after he was re-elected in 2012, Mr Ob*ma was at a town hall event in New Orleans. A young boy there asked him: "Why do people h*te you?"
    Mr Obama later pointed out that: "I was elected president, so not everybody h*tes me!"

    Ob*ama immigration policy, catch and release is flooding the USA with 3rd World Democrats (Socialist). Ob*ma has directed HUD to place immigrants in conservative towns across America.

    Ethnic Cle*nsing the towns.

    If you take 400 immigrants and place them in a town like Baltimore in the top 20 most violent cities in the world and one of America's most ethnic diverse cities, no difference. Placing the same 400 immigrants in a small conservative town of 1600 people, he now has a more diverse town (Fair Amount of Socialist).

  • Over the past couple of years, dozens of high-profile U.S. companies have moved abroad.

    Medical manufacturer Medtronic moved to Ireland.

    Americans could lose their Second Amendment, and possibly other, rights simply because they happened to undergo their mandatory depression screening when they were coping with a loved one’s passing or a divorce, or simply having a bad day. As anyone who has been mistakenly placed on the terrorist watch list can attest, it is very difficult to get off a government database even when the government clearly is in error. Thus, anyone mistakenly labeled as depressed will have to spend a great deal of time and money in what may be a futile attempt to get his rights back.

    If mandatory depression screening becomes a reality, it is likely this mental health screening will be expanded to cover screening for other mental illnesses. This could result in anyone with an unpopular political belief or lifestyle choice being labeled as “mentally ill.”

    Bernie Sanders Vows to Break up Nation's Largest Banks Within His First Year

    Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders vowed to break up the country’s largest banks and insurance companies within the first year of taking the oval office in a speech in New York on Tuesday.

    During a speech in downtown Manhattan, Sanders said that within the first 100 days of his administration he would direct his Secretary of the Treasury to compile a list of financial institutions that were “too big to fail.” Within the first year of his presidency, he would move to disband the companies, whose potential financial collapse is deemed too risky to the nation's economy.

    During the course of his remarks, the presidential candidate specifically named several companies when talking about what he sees as reckless and monopolistic behavior on Wall Street, including Bank of America, Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and others.

    "I will rein in Wall Street so they cannot crash our economy again.

    New Poll
    Bernie Sanders is marching towards winning the Democratic presidential nomination, according to a Quinnipiac University poll published Friday.
    The polls saw Clinton garner 44 percent of the Democratic votes, while 42 percent people voted in favor of Sanders, a remarkable rise in his poll numbers.

    BTW, Poll's indicates Sanders beats all Republican opponents. Ob*ama is doing what he can to improve America, with a catch & release immigration policy. His administration is currently distributing 3rd world immigrants( socialist) to small conservative towns (ethnic cleansing the towns) across America. For example: Taking 300 Syrian refugees and placing them in a small conservative town of 1200 people, no longer the same town.

    If you take those same 300 Syrian refugees and place them in a city like Baltimore - one of the most diverse cities in our nation, top 20 most d*ngerous cities in the world. The Syrians would most likely feel like they never left home.

  • Bulgaria-born Prophetess Baba Vanga, who died in 1996 aged 85, was known as “Nostradamus from the Balkans” thanks to a purported 85 per cent success rate and has long been revered in Russia and Europe as a kind of supernatural saint.

    She became the go-to psychic for the rich and powerful and admirers, among them heads of state, scientists and historians, would come from all over the world for a few minutes in her company.

    She later served as an adviser to Bulgarian Communist Party leaders, some of whom allegedly exploited her gift to further their own agendas. She was reportedly kept under surveillance by the country’s secret service and her home, the scene of countless meetings with visiting foreign politician and businessmen, reported bugged.

    2016: The chilling prophecies warn of a 2016 invasion of Europe by M*slim extr*mists, a conflict she predicted would begin with the Arab Spring in 2010, play out in Syria where “M*slims would use ch*mical w*rfare ag*inst Europeans”, and culminate in the establishment of a caliphate by 2043 with Rome at its epicentre.

    2043: Europe’s transformation into an Islamic caliphate is complete. Rome is named the capital. The world’s economy thrives under Muslim rule.

    2066: America will use a new climate change w*apon for the first time in a bid to retake Rome and bring back Christianity.

    2076: Communism will return to Europe and the rest of the world.

  • Oil - The sheer scale of the oil price rout is already imperiling the finances of producer nations from Africa to Azerbaijan, and is now threatening to unleash a wave of bankruptcies across corporate America.

    For now, oil-induced financial stress is concentrated in the energy sector.
    With Brent set to languish around $30-35 barrel for the rest of the year, prices will persist below the $40-60 barrel break-even point that renders the bulk of US oil and gas companies profitable.

    Spreads on high yield US energy corporates have soared to unprecedented highs. “They make Lehman look like a walk in the park.”

    More than a third of the entire US high yield bond index is now vulnerable to crude prices remaining low or falling even further, according to calculations from Oxford Economics.

    As a result, 2016 is set to see the first wave of corporate bankruptcies in the oil and gas sector. Highly leveraged US shale companies will be the first be picked off. Should escalating defaults have a further depressant effect on oil prices, it could unleash a tidal wave of corporate bankruptcies in the world’s largest economy.

    The question exercising the minds of economists and investors is the extent to which this contagion could metastasize beyond the energy sector, as banks cut off credit access, loans turn bad, and financial conditions enter a critical tightening phase.

  • In a breaking development that has been completely ignored by mainstream news sources, the leaking natural gas well near Los Angeles, California is now reportedly spewing lethal levels of radioactive material, according to a report from Steve Quayle and a group with expertise in nuclear material.

    A leaking natural gas well outside Los Angeles is spewing so much naturally-occurring Uranium and Radon, that “breathable” radiation levels have hit “lethal levels” according to a Nuclear Expert group.

    A Becquerel is a much more human sized unit of measure… it’s one radioactive burst of energy per second… One Curie is 37 billion Becquerels per second.

    That’s 1.7 trillion Becquerels per day coming out of that natural gas well.

    This is a real Fukushima class disaster and it’s happening right here in the USA.

    In 80 days of fumes at a pace of 1,115 tons per day coming out of that ground… could carry with it 301.2 terra-Becquerels of natural radioactivity… This converts to a resperable… a breathable emanation of 12 million Sieverts (Sv)… 2.4 million times the l*thal dose by inhalation.

    Full audio report via Hal Turner (begins at approximately 49:00 minutes)
    In short, the leak is massive and researchers at UC Davis have indicated that they have never encountered as much methane in the air as they have over suburban Los Angeles in recent months.

    While resident complaints of feeling ill, vomiting and nausea have been chalked off by officials as the result of breathing in the natural gas, it is quite possible and increasingly likely that what they are experiencing is actually radiation poisoning.

    According to one report, the radiation levels in the Chernobyl control room following the 1986 disaster reached about 300 Sv per hour. That was enough to provide a lethal dose to anyone in the room within 1-2 minutes.

    While the Los Angeles leak is widespread with radiation disbursing across the city, the fact remains that millions of Sieverts of radiation have been releas

    Iraqi migrant admits r*ping boy in Austrian pool after having 'too much sexual energy'
    A man said he sexually assaulted the 10-year-old boy in a cubicle because he had not had sex for four months and he had "followed his desires"

    An Iraqi migrant has admitted r*ping a 10-year-old boy at a swimming pool in Austria because he had not had s*x in four months and it was a “sexual emergency”.

    The 20-year-old man is accused of att*cking the boy in a cubicle of the Theresienbad swimming pool in Vienna, telling police he had “followed his desires”.

    The v*ctim had to be h*spitalised following injuries inflicted by the s*spect, who worked as a taxi driver after arriving in Austria via the Balkans in September, and who has a wife and daughter back in Iraq.

    After the att*ck, the suspect left the cubicle and went to enjoy himself by springing from the three-metre-high diving board while the victim alerted a lifeguard, Austrian newspaper the Kronen Zeitung reported.

    Des Moines Register calls for audit of Iowa Dem caucus

    Iowa's largest newspaper called Thursday for an audit into the results of the state's Democratic caucus, pointing to confusion and problems at numerous polling sites -- and declaring “something smells in the Democratic Party.”

  • But forget QE-4.

    The Germans, with Teutonic precision, call them “Punishment Interest.” Negative interest rates are spreading from the ECB’s negative deposit rate across the bond market and to some savings accounts in the Eurozone. The idea is to enrich existing bond holders and flog savers until their mood improves. Stock prices are allowed to get crushed by reality.

    Negative interest rates destroy one of the most essential mechanisms in an economy: the pricing of risk. Investors end up taking huge risks with no reward. Many of them will get cleaned out down the road.

    In Switzerland, punishment interest already causes “perverse unpredictable effects,” as mortgage rates have started to soar. It’s wreaking havoc in Denmark and Sweden. Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz let the idea float that he’d unleash punishment interest to destroy the Canadian dollar. The Bank of Japan announced Friday morning – timed for maximum market effect – that it too would inflict negative interest rates on its subjects.

    In the US, Ben Bernanke has been out there preaching to the choir about them. Over-indebted corporate America, except for the banks, would love this absurdity; it would allow them to actually make money off their mountain of debt.

    But note: not a single word about QE.

    If the stock market crashes 50% this year, as the “severely adverse” scenario spells out, all the Fed will do is slash the fed funds rate to a negative 0.5%. And if stocks crash only 25% this year, instead of 50%?

    That’s the case in the Fed’s middle scenario, the merely “adverse” scenario. Short-term rates will “remain near zero” it says – maybe slightly below where they’re right now. So no negative interest rates. And no QE either. Stocks can go to heck, the Fed is saying. It’s worried about credits, particularly high-grade credits. Junk bonds and stocks are on their own.

    And this concept of switching to negative interest rates and away from QE is even in line with the Bank of Japan’s desperate

    Kyle Bass: China Banks Months Away From ‘Danger Territory’
    Hayman Capital Management founder Kyle Bass has been ringing the alarm bells about China's banking system and the yuan for months, and now he says the day of reckoning could be just months away.

    The premise of Bass' bet goes like this: China's banking system has grown to $34.5 trillion, equal to more than three times the country's GDP. The country is due for a loss cycle as cracks begin to show in its economy.

    When that happens, central bankers will have to dip into China's $3.3 trillion of foreign exchange reserves to recapitalize the banks, causing a significant depreciation in the value of the yuan, according to Bass.

    On Wednesday, he said China's export-import industry requires China to maintain $2.7 trillion in foreign exchange reserves to continue operating smoothly, citing an International Monetary Fund assessment.

    "They'll hit that number in the next five months," he said in an interview on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street." "Those that think they can burn it to zero and they have many years ahead of them, they really only have a few months ahead of them before they get into a real danger territory."
