For Crispin Odey This Is The Engame: Hedge Fund Billionaire Goes All In Betting On "Violent Unwind" Of QE Bubble
This is defiantly the most polarizing vote in the history of this country. I believe Donald Trump will win, because around the world, nationalism is on the rise. Nigel Farage led the charge to have Britain leave the European Union in the Brexit vote. It sounds like other EU countries, like France, may do the same. The people of Britain were tired of unelected bearcats dictating their future. In Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, a liberal leaning president was impeached at the end of August. Angela Merkel, the German Prime Minister, is probably serving her last term in office, and in Greece the Golden Dawn party is pushing for a nationalist state.

With neither major party able to secure a majority of seats in the national legislature and the two parties unable to agree on a coalition government, for the last 10 months Spain has had a do-nothing caretaker government for the first time in its history. While basic government services continue, no new legislation is being proposed, foreign policy is stuck in place, and many infrastructure and other government projects are frozen. In contrast to dire predictions of chaos, everything is proceeding smoothly and some Spaniards are learning a valuable lesson about the resilience of society when left to its own (voluntary) devices. The lesson has been pithily summed up by Felix Pastor, a language teacher, who states:
In the immortal words of Queen Victoria, Saudi Arabia “is not amused.”
With the first 9/11 lawsuit already winging its way to The Kingdom following Congress’ decision to un-vet, Saudi officials have broken their silence “stressing their concern” and warning of “consequences.”
The Minister of State, Cabinet’s Member, and Acting Minister of Culture and Information Dr. Essam bin Saad bin Saeed said in a statement to Saudi Press Agency following the session that the Cabinet stressed that the adoption of “JASTA” Law in the United States of America is of great concern to the international community in which international relations are based on the principle of equality and sovereign immunity, the principle governing international relations for hundreds of years.

Minnesota is in good company.
Like dozens of other states across the country, its government-mandated health care exchange is facing steeply-rising premiums for individual plans at levels that are both outrageous and completely impossible for the average Middle Class family to pay or keep up with.
And as future rates continue to rise – and it’s going to hurt a lot of people.
Because the system was designed to fail; or, because the government and health care lobbies have so little regard for the people that will actually have to live and die by their rules, the prices are skyrocketing by more than 50% in Minnesota – and by similarly absurd numbers in other states – and the exchange narrowly avoiding collapsing altogether in 2017.
Gaddafi agreed to hold free elections, but Clinton’s refusal led to ISIS takeover, thousands of deaths, international migrant crisis
Hillary Clinton personally nixed a peace deal in Libya that would have led to free elections and prevented the country being seized by ISIS, all because of a personal vendetta she had with Muammar Gaddafi, according to explosive new claims made by a whistleblower who personally oversaw the negotiations.
Christian preacher Dr. Kilari Anand Paul is a global peace ambassador originally from India who is now a naturalized U.S. citizen.
The Department of Defense spent over half a billion dollars funding fake news reports and terrorist propaganda videos in Iraq during the American-led war, according to a new report.
The Bureau of Investigative Journalism broke the story Sunday that “between 2006 and 2008, more than 40 companies were being paid for services such as TV and radio placement, video production, billboards, advertising and opinion polls” in Iraq.
One company, in particular, dominated this realm of the military-industrial complex.
In light of a bill passed by the US Congress allowing families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, Iraqis have asked their parliament to demand compensation for the US invasion of Iraq.
After the US Congress passed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), which overrides the principle of sovereign immunity to allow families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia, an Iraqi group has requested parliament to prepare a lawsuit seeking compensation from the US for the invasion of Iraq.
The gyrations in Deutsche Bank’s shares last week together with a June report from the International Monetary Fund indicating that the bank was “the most important net contributor to systemic risks” has cast a trading pall over all of the global banks.
Against that backdrop, most Americans would be stunned to learn that the German Deutsche Bank, which perpetually finds itself on the wrong side of the law, was bailed out in five separate U.S. emergency lending operations during the 2007-2010 financial crisis, receiving more than twice the emergency financial assistance as that received by Lehman Brothers, the failed U.S. investment bank.
