Assange's Lawyer Provides An "Out": Says Conditions Not Met For Extradition Deal

"Mr. Assange welcomes the announcement that Ms. Manning's sentence will be reduced and she will be released in May, but this is well short of what he sought.  Mr. Assange had called for Chelsea Manning to receive clemency and be released immediately."

It looks just like a Ponzi scheme doesn’t it?

by Bill Holter, JS Mineset, via SGT Report:

GATA forwarded a fabulous link yesterday  to Hugo Salinas Price’s latest writing.  This is a very short read and represents visually what Richard Russell said for years …”Inflate or Die”.  Please read it carefully because if you do not understand it, you will not understand “why” mathematically we are about to go through financial and economic disaster.  Read More

The Truth About Venezuela's "Economic War"

President Maduro is correct. Venezuela’s economic woes are indeed the result of economic war and mafia attacks. But Venezuela’s political elites are the mafia, and they alone have waged a decades-long economic war on Venezuela’s people.

The 'Soda Police' Just Learned A Valuable Lesson About Taxes

"I’m hoping that if leftists see how tax hikes are “successful” in discouraging things that they think are bad (such as consumers buying sugary soda or foreigners buying property), then maybe they’ll realize it’s not such a good idea to tax – and therefore discourage – things that everyone presumably agrees are desirable (such as work, saving, investment, and entrepreneurship)."

Over $100 Billion Redeemed From Hedge Funds In 2016 As Only 32% Outperform Their Benchmark

December was a fitting end to a difficult year for hedge funds: the single largest month of outfles in 2016, December also marked the sixth month of outflows in the last seven, and resulted in Q4 not only being the fifth consecutive quarter of redemptions, but also the largest quarterly outflow from the industry since Q1 2009. 

Does A Rogue Deep State Have Trump's Back?

"Costs Are Rising, Wages Are Dropping" - The 'Real' Economy That Obama Left For Trump

As President Obama held his last press conference this afternoon, basking in the warm afterglow of an over-sampled poll showing his favorability near record highs, it would appear he (and the press corps) forgot to mention that for most Americans - the 80% in production and nonsupervisory roles - this morning's data showed real wages actually dropping for the first time since 2013. Not exactly the rosy picture of economic growth being spun by the media as Obama transitions to Trump.

Quinnipiac Poll Suggests Hillary Would Crush De Blasio In NYC Mayoral Race

Like a nagging case of "pneumonia" that brings with it random, yet inevitable, bouts of full-body paralysis, the rumors/threats of Hillary tossing her hat in the ring for the New York City Mayoral race simply won't go away.

New ABC / WaPo Poll Uses "Oversamples" To Goal Seek Strong Obama Approval Rating

Just one day after the bitter mainstreamers at ABC/WaPo and CNN used their "oversamples" of Democrats to rig polls showing an unprecedented unfavorable rating of the incoming President-elect, those same outlets have used those same methodologies to engineer stellar approval ratings for Obama in new polls out today...shocking.

Martin Armstrong Rages: Ken Rogoff Is "An Elitist Who Has No Respect For The People"

"[Rogoff] has the audacity to say that people should not look at their short-term personal losses, but rather look at the long-term vision of the central banks. He is such an elitist. I cannot find words appropriate to describe how this academic, who has zero experience in the real world, is incapable of comprehending that his Marxist style intervention is creating the next crisis."

Lagarde Urges Wealth Redistribution To Fight Populism

"I want to be loud and clear: populism scares me... policy makers need to 'man-up' and pay for the social cohesion that we need to keep our societies advancing... it probably means more redistribution than we have in place at the moment and accept that this may be a higher tax burden on people..."

Trump's (Not So) Invisible Hand

Want to know why US stocks feel so fragile?  Perhaps we can blame Wall Street analysts.  Even after two months of market buzz about lower taxes, infrastructure spending and less regulation juicing investor expectations for better earnings growth, they refuse to bump their revenue or earnings estimates for 2017.

Netflix Soars Despite Slashing Domestic Subscriber Outlook & Record Cash-Burn

Forget the negative cash-flow, forget the ongoing and rising cost of content, and forget the fact that Netflix slashed its domestic subscriber growth expectations; buy-the-f##king-record-high because earnings and revenues met expectations but international subscriber growth soared.

Davos Elite Fear “Rise of Populism… Road Leads to War, Poverty, Confrontation… And Domination”

by Melissa Dykes, SHTF Plan:
Fearing that they are losing power, the elite are readying a heavy-handed response to populations that are growing restless and uneasy. For their purposes, the growing wave of populism is a dangerous sign…
Editor’s Comment: Cloaked behind digestible buzzwords and cliches expected of a ranking member of the ruling elite is a stark threat: the uprising they see happening among the population will be mirrored in return with greater control and ruthless manipulation of human affairs. Those swarms and masses who will not fall in line will be brought to ruin through war, economic enslavement, financial poverty, restrictions and controls over the market… one way or another, those who would dare to defy the banks and the bureaucrats will be leveled again, and dominated by the shear hegemony of globalism.

Do You Know Who the Swiss President Is?

from GoldAndLiberty:
Doris Leuthard. That’s the name of the incumbent Swiss president in case you wondered or might need it in a general knowledge quiz any time soon. But how come a country this well known on the international stage happens to have such an unknown executive?

Trails in the sky over London
by SGT, SGT Report:
I just received this email from a longtime reader who lives in London. It seems the desire to “own the weather by 2025” is not a goal limited only to the US Air Force.
Here’s the note & the pictures:
I was leaving home this morning and I saw something that made me think of you! Please see the attached photos that I took of the skies over Paddington, London at approximately 07:45am GMT. Please feel free to share these on your website or in your videos. I am not an expert but the trails in the sky look very suspicious

Why Preppers Should Learn to Survive Without Brand Name Equipment

by Jeremiah Johnson, Ready Nutrition:
ReadyNutrition Readers, this article is a “trumpet call” to continue your preparations, or to commence with them if you have not done so already. We don’t know what the inauguration is going to bring, if indeed it does occur peaceably. For one thing, everyone and their brother on the Left has threated everything possible, such as mass demonstrations, mass disruptions, and physical violence against the incoming president. The bottom line: we don’t know what will happen, and it is best to remain in a state of readiness and preparation.
I’m also going to explain something of my own mindset regarding matters toward preparation. With some of the pieces I have written, there have been a good deal of disparaging comments, especially directed toward pieces with recommendations for tools, equipment, food, and on-the-spot preps from bargain sources and Dollar stores.

Is Trump’s Strategy To Trap The Central Bank?

from X22Report:

Analyzing Mainstream News Anti-Logic

by Jon Rappoport, Jon Rappoport’s Blog:
Thousands of articles have been written about the so-called Russian hack of the US election. The term “Russian hack” suggests the Russkies actually found a way to subvert the results of voting machines.
But of course, no convincing evidence has been presented to support such a charge. In fact, when you drill down a few inches below the surface, you find this charge instead: Russia hacked into email accounts and scooped up Hillary, DNC, and Podesta emails, and passed them to WikiLeaks, who then published them.
No chain of evidence supporting this claim has been presented to the public, either. But even assuming the assertion is true, an important factor is intentionally being ignored: THE CONTENT OF THOSE LEAKED EMAILS.

A “Massive Selloff” Could Be Around the Corner

by Doug Casey, Casey Research:
You better buckle your seatbelt.
U.S. stocks could soon take a turn for the worse. Most investors aren’t prepared for this. They’ve been lulled to sleep.
That’s because U.S. stocks have gone nowhere in recent weeks. The S&P 500 has hovered between 2,258 and 2,282 since the start of the year. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has also traded within a tight range.
When the markets are this calm, many investors put their guard down. They buy more stocks than they should. They lighten up on gold. They forget about their stop losses.

US F-16 Photographed In Mock Dogfight With Russian Su-27 Above Area 51

from Zero Hedge:
A curious sight was observed in the skies above Area 51 in Nevada, on November 8, the day Donald Trump was elected President, by vacationing air traffic controller Phil Drake. According to Drake, the photographs below all taken by him, show a Russian-built Su-27P fighter jet taking on a US Air Force F-16 engaged in a mock dogfight training mission.
The moment a US F-16 was caught in a mock dogfight with a Russian SU-27 fighter
Drake, a 42-year-old enthusiast from Hampshire in the UK, told the Mail he was visiting the desert surrounding Area 51 on the day of the Presidential election, and hoped to see some fast jets involved in a training mission. Instead, what he photographed appears to have been Russian Su-27 involved in a combat training with a US fighter jet.

Russia Invites Trump’s National Security Advisor to Syria Peace Talks

by Stephen Lendman, The Sleuth Journal:
Moscow’s good faith outreach to Washington on resolving conflicts in Syria and Ukraine failed because Obama and neocons infesting his administration want war, not peace.
Will Trump’s geopolitical agenda diverge from longstanding US policy? Will he choose peacemaking over endless wars? It’s unlikely, but hope springs eternal.
On January 23, peace talks to try resolving Syria’s conflict begin in Astana, Kazakhstan, arranged by Russia, Iran and Turkey, the Obama administration excluded, a deliberate snub.
