Mike Adams’ Natural News Restored By Google After Massive Takedown...

by Jon Rappoport, Activist Post:
I was shocked, but not surprised, by the relatively small number of independent news sites that came to Mike’s defense. Has the 1st Amendment become a faded memory?
For six days, Google shut down all listings for Natural News.
Google gave no rational explanation. Then, again with no comprehensible reason, Google restored Natural News.

"The Attorney General Must Resign": Pelosi, Top Democrats Calls For Sessions' Immediate Termination

Retail Buying Panic: S&P ETF Saw Biggest Inflow In 27 Months Yesterday

If yesterday's exuberant spike in stocks (surging Dow above 21,000), on a day when economic growth expectations were crushed, was not enough to scare you about the ebulient animal spirits in the markets, then perhaps this will. The largest S&P 500 ETF (SPY) was inflows of $8.2bn - the biggest daily inflow since Dec 2014 (and second largest in 6 years).

March Rate Hike Odds Reach 90%

The Fed jawboning has gone well... too well. Dudley, Harker, Kaplan, Williams, and Brainard have managed to push the market-implied probability of a March rate hike from around 20% to 90% in a week. The Fed is now cornered...

Yield Curve Collapse & The Fed's "Surprising Economic Strength"

As Lael Brainard piled on The Fed's sudden utter hawkishness, following Dudley, Harker, Kaplan, and Williams, we noticed a common thread behind the need to hike rates in March - each implicitly or explicitly noted America's "surprisingly strong economy." This led to a stunning WTF moment...

Cudmore: "Now Only A Severe Market Correction Will Stop The Fed From Hiking In March"

"The Fed’s motivation for tightening is more related to the resilient sentiment of markets rather than data-driven. The corollary is that any data disappointment in the next two weeks will be unlikely to stop the Fed from tightening, and only a severe market correction will stop them acting now."

Russian Jets Nearly Bomb US Forces In Syria, Hit US-Backed Rebels

from ZeroHedge:
Russian and Syrian jets nearly hit U.S. forces in northern Syria on Tuesday when they attacked positions held by Syrian Democratic Forces, a US ally in the ongoing effort to expel the Islamic State from Syria, the top U.S. commander in Iraq and Syria said Wednesday.
The Russian and Syrian planes, apparently, had seen some ISIS forces recently move out of the area and hit the U.S. proxies thinking they were ISIS forces. The Syrian Arab force took casualties, but the Russian planes peeled off once their American counterparts used a long-established hotline to warn them they were bombing friendly forces. American advisory forces were fewer than five miles away, but were unharmed.

Euro Breakup Rattles Investors Once Again

by Don Quijones, Wolf Street:
Only this time, the ECB is already doing “whatever it takes.”
With hotly contested general elections coming up in France, Germany, and Holland – where yet another upset could be on the cards – 2017 was always going to be a nail-biter for the Eurozone. That was before former Italian PM Matteo Renzi raised the prospects of fresh elections in the home of electoral chaos, Italy.
And investors’ nerves are fraying. The spread between the 10-year yields of French government debt and German government debt has already widened from 0.28% in October to 0.81% today in anticipation of French elections, to be held in April. According to Frankfurt-based Sentix research group, the probability that France could fracture the euro is also rising, reaching 8.4% in its latest survey of investor sentiment as concerns about Marine Le Pen’s threat to the French and European establishment continue to rise. It’s the highest level registered to date.

Insanity Prevails In The Stock Market

by Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:
The Dow and the S&P 500 stock indices are emblematic for the degree to which the U.S. economic, financial, political and social system has dislocated from reality. Insanity prevails in a system that is corrupted to the core. “Going down the rabbit hole” is a popular allusion in reference to the surrealism that has enveloped the American system. I’d hazard to assert that it would take a few tabs of LSD to make today’s world believable. The fact that Donald Trump is President says it all…
With regard to the stock market, if you studied finance anytime from the 1950’s until the mid-1990’s, fell asleep for 20 years and woke up to today, you would conclude that the opposite of everything you learned is now the truth. It started in the late 1990’s when Greenspan coined the “new economy” mantra and scam artists like Henry Blodget got everyone to believe that “new economy” stock valuations could be derived from the number of “clicks and eyeballs” received by a company’s website. And I thought that was insane.

State Department Employee Has Brakes Cut For the Second Time-What She Knows?

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:
For the second time in 3 weeks, State Department employee, Monika Wesolowski has had the brakes on her car targeted. She was barely able to avoid disaster. I was originally contacted by Monika’s friend, Mary Tindall, who provided me with the details. Further, Monika and Mary have informed me that Monika’s communications are being tampered with as they have both informed me that the communications anomolies that are transpiring when they speak (eg the playing of Monika’s voicemail while she is talking on the phone), are increasing in frequency and severity.

Teacher under attack for questioning safety of vaccines in the classroom

by Ethan A. Huff, Natural News:
A Canadian science teacher has been found guilty of “professional misconduct” – not for harassing a student or neglecting his instructional duties as you might expect, but simply because he dared to warn his students about the potential side effects of childhood vaccines.
The Globe and Mail reports that Timothy Cyril Sullivan was punished for telling his students that in some cases vaccinations can lead to death – a fact that’s printed right inside vaccine package inserts. He also warned them that many public health nurses fail to explain this to the public so that they can make an informed decision as to whether or not to vaccinate.
To any rationally minded person, presenting such information is part of the education process. But to the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT), this type of behavior is punishable with disciplinary action, as it defies the official narrative that vaccines are 100 percent safe and effective at all times.
