It's an all out panic for the GOP establishment faithful, and now some senior Republicans are saying privately that they might consider voting for Mrs Clinton if Mr Trump were to end up as their party nominee as one conservative commentator exclaimed "we are on the verge of a real meltdown in the Republican party."
set-up by the GOP?

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/29/2016 - 16:55 The probability of recession is increasing. Contrary to popular belief, the beginning of a recession is not deflationary but the exact opposite. We expect a recession by the end of 2016, and if that projection turns out to be wrong due to a massive turnaround in Fed policy, the cataclysmic event will only be postponed till 2017.

Pershing Square reveals its latest weekly performance report tomorrow night. As of this moment we expect nothing less than a 25% drop.
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/29/2016 - 15:45 As stocks have risen in recent weeks on the biggest short-squeeze in 7 years, so VIX - the expected volatility of the market - has dropped to 2016 lows. However, with VIX at around 20, remains almost double the peak-QE-suppression lows of July 2014. Complacency is peaking though as VVIX - the expected volatility of VIX - has collapsed to its post-QE lows and erased all fear since before China's August 2015 devaluation.

Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/29/2016 - 14:55 Perhaps this is America’s true imperial moment, when all party politics surrenders to the pre-tsunami undertow of events. None of the idiot network commentators or Wash-Po or NY Times columnists seem to notice that the global economy is sinking into a coma, and in so doing is igniting cluster-bombs of default through the financial system. The biggest surprise of all yet-to-come is that television will fail to explain it. The second coming will not be the reappearance of the celebrity known as Jesus Christ, but rather of the event called the American Civil War.
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 02/29/2016 - 14:41 Over the past two weeks, we’ve begun to document what may end up being a dramatic unwind in the CLO market. New issue spreads are rising, issuance is collapsing, and both S&P and Moody’s recently downgraded several CLO 2.0 tranches for the first time ever. Unless you think the acute stress in the HY market is set to abate - and trust us, it’s not - you can bet that things are about to get very ugly, very quickly at least for junior CLO tranches. For those curious to know how this debacle plays out, history offers a useful guide.

VRX bonds are down dramatically on the day.. not the forst day back at work Pearson was hoping for.

For leading U.S. shale oil producers, $40 is the new $70. Less than a year ago major shale firms were saying they needed oil above $60 a barrel to produce more; now some say they will settle for far less in deciding whether to crank up output after the worst oil price crash in a generation.

Did you know that if you are an American under 18 years old and you use your cell phone to send a nude “selfie” of yourself to a friend, you can be convicted of manufacturing and distributing “child pornography” and sent to prison? In case you are too old to be in the loop, a “selfie” is a photo that one makes of oneself.
This is how expansively prosecutors, whose main purpose in life is to ruin as many people as possible, interpret laws passed to protect children from sexual exploitation.
Sexting—the exchange of nude photographs—is now a big thing among the 14-17 year old set, especially among females.
The beginning of 2016 revealed what some have known for quite some time – financial markets are an epic disaster just waiting to be realized. With stock indexes having rebounded somewhat since the initial meltdown, financial pundits and mainstream analysts would have us believe that the worst of it has passed. But don’t be fooled, warns Economic Collapse Blog publisher Michael Snyder in his latest interview with Future Money Trends, because we’re still in the early chapters of what may be the most devastating financial, economic and monetary collapse in history:
A total of $16.5 trillion dollars had been wiped out from stock markets around the world… that doesn’t even count bonds and other things. So we have seen this massive amount of wealth wiped out globally… almost as much as the U.S. national debt.Read More
Steve Quayle, appeared on my show last month and proclaimed in one sentence what is becoming the mantra for many in the Independent Media: “When we talk about what is coming, is no longer coming, it is here“. When one looks at the economic reports and the prospect of World War III breaking out at any moment, truer words were never spoken.

Over 93% of investors lost money in the month of January. This figure was derived from data shared exclusively with CNNMoney by Openfolio, which is an app that follows individual investment portfolios and how they compare with other investors.
When Agenda 21 is finally implemented in full, and tens of millions of Americans are crammed into the cities like cattle, where do you think they’re all going to live? How are we going to squeeze all these people into the already crowded urban cores? Don’t worry, there will be plenty of housing for the masses once the micro apartments are built.
Several cities are already trying this out. They’ve lifted building code restrictions to allow developers to build the tiniest apartments you can imagine. The most famous of these is the Carmel Place development in New York City, which contains 55 units that range in size from 265 to 360 square feet, and cost between $2,650 and $3,150 per month.
