Economic Collapse? Fed Issues an Ominous Warning to JPMorgan Chase and Leaders Flock to Secret Meetings

Do you hear that? It’s the clock on the time bomb, and it appears to be ticking relentlessly toward our economic collapse.

It seems like every day, there is a new threat to the financial well-being of the disappearing middle class in America. Of course, less affected are the members of Congress and their buddies on Wall Street. You know, the ones that put the politicians in office to get favorable decisions made on their behalf in Washington.

But if you happen to have been ignoring the folks Obama calls “peddlers of fiction” who have been warning us all of an impending economic crisis along the lines of the last financial collapse, you might want to pay attention now, because a disturbing series of events is in motion.

A Despicable Decision: Hamilton Will Stay on the $10 Bill; Jackson Will Be Booted From the $20 Bill

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is expected to announce this week that Alexander Hamilton's face will remain on the front of the $10 bill and a woman will replace Andrew Jackson on the face of the $20 bill, a senior government source told CNN on Saturday. When it was originally announced that Hamilton would be replaced by a woman, the statist banking crowd, led by Ben Bernanke, roared in outrage. The statists know their history. It was Hamilton, who from the early days of the nation clamored for a central bank and a strong interventionist federal government.

Wyoming DOT: I-80 Completely Shut Down For 'White Out Conditions'

The State of Wyoming is informing all commercial trucks entering their port of entry on Interstate 80 eastbound that the entire interstate is shut down at Rock Springs due to whiteout conditions. Weather looked sunny and mild at the Utah/ Wyoming state line, but Rock Springs is 100 miles to the east. Evanston, WY, located at exit 3, is beginning to see light snowflakes. The DOT officer said that the I-80 has been closed since last night. So if you're expecting a package in the mail, don't be surprised if it's late. Happy spring in the age of 'global warming!' :-)

Wilders threatens lawsuit over Ukraine Referendum inaction

The Netherlands: PVV leader Geert Wilders wants to take Prime Minister Mark Rutte to court. According to Wilders, the Prime Minister is breaking the law by not immediately responding to the “no”-vote in the referendum on the association agreement between the EU and Ukraine.

Wilders told the Telegraaf that he researched the law of ministerial responsibility and based on what it says, Rutte can be prosecuted. He called the lack of response a “professional misconduct”, which could a prison sentence of up to three years, according to Wilders.

The PVV leader and other PVV members therefore filed a complaint with Tweede Kamer president Khadija Arib, asking her to investigate.

The majority of people who voted in the Ukraine referendum on April 6th, voted against the association agreement between the country and the EU. Earlier this week Prime Minister Mark Rutte promised a response on the outcome by June.

Two despised frontrunners, two dying parties and a deeply broken system: How did we get here?

To paraphrase a great American poet of the 1980s, this is not our beautiful house.We get a tiny breather in the political calendar this week, and it’s a useful moment to take half a step back from the most chaotic and disordered presidential campaign in living memory and ask ourselves the big question: What in the name of Jiminy Cricket is going on here? I spent the week digging into the past for clues to the strange dynamics of the present: To be clear, I did not conclude that Donald Trump is a new Hitler or that Bernie Sanders is a new Lenin, only that the parallels and the discontinuities were instructive.

Red-handed: UK military trained Saudis as they rained fire on Yemen, says Reprieve

UK military personnel have delivered a series of three-week courses on “international targeting” to the Saudi forces currently engaged in pummeling Yemen, a Freedom of Information (FoI) request shows.

The revelations were made following a request by the human rights NGO Reprieve. The organization is now urging the UK government to stop providing military support.

While the MoD has long claimed its role is purely advisory, the revelations lay bare the closeness with which the two countries operate.

Declassify the Full 9/11 Report

Declassify the Full 9/11 Report and the CIA’s Bay of Pigs History

NATIONAL REVIEW: When President Obama departs for Saudi Arabia, an incubator of the 9/11 attacks, he will leave behind a dispute about government secrecy. The suppression of 28 pages, first from a public congressional inquiry and then from the 2004 report by the national 9/11 Commission, has spared the Saudis embarrassment, which would be mild punishment for complicity in 2,977 murders. When Obama returns, he should keep his promise to release the pages. Then he should further curtail senseless secrecy by countermanding the CIA’s refusal to release its official history of the 1961 Bay of Pigs debacle.

The nature of the 28 pages pertaining to 9/11 can be inferred from this carefully worded sentence in the commission’s report: “We have found no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded [al-Qaeda]” (emphases added).>>>

New strain of super-gonorrhoea is spreading across UK and medics warn it may become untreatable

A highly drug-resistant type of 'super-gonorrhoea' is spreading across the country, with senior medics warning it may become untreatable.

A powerful strain of the sexually transmitted superbug first seen in the north of England has now been found in the West Midlands and the South East, Public Health England (PHE) said.

The strain is 'highly resistant' to the antibiotic azithromycin, meaning medics are relying on a second drug, ceftriaxone, to treat it.

But there are no other effective drugs to tackle it, raising the prospect of it becoming untreatable if it builds further resistance.

Reince Priebus blasted for ‘major breach of trust’ by top RNC officials

By Ralph Z. Hallow - The Washington Times - Saturday, April 16, 2016
Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus is coming under fire from some of his top officials, all of whom have been considered loyalists throughout his six years in office.

They are accusing Mr. Priebus of concealing from members proposed changes to the rules that will govern the party’s July presidential nominating convention in Cleveland.

“I consider this to be a major breach of trust,” said RNC Rules Committee Chairman Bruce Ash of Arizona.Mr. Priebus‘ former loyalists say they have reluctantly concluded that forces at the RNC will stop at virtually nothing to keep the door open to the nomination of Ohio Gov. John Kasich at the July convention – or, as some skeptics fear, some “white knight” who moderates claim will have broader voter appeal this fall than either Donald Trump or Ted Cruz, the two top-delegate winners, have shown in most polls so far.
