Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden
It took the Fed 7 years, countless white papers, Congressional testimonies, economist reports, and goalseeked narratives explaining why QE should work, before the St. Louis Fed finally realized and admitted one month ago that QE, in fact, does not work (which is almost as ironic as the Davos World Economic folks explaining “Why we shouldn’t borrow money from the future“… which is great if only it hadn’t come some $200 trillion too late). It took the Fed only $4.5 trillion in balance sheet assets, and making the rich richer beyond their wildest dreams, to admit what we said all along. Continue reading

President Obama has been a frequent critic of local police, especially following racially charged incidents in which he seems to reflexively defend minorities – even if they are later found by courts and juries to be guilty as charged.
As such, the Obama White House has been working covertly to “nationalize” police departments, essentially bringing all state, county and local police under the purview and control of the Justice Department and federal officials. In fact, the administration has already chosen six cities as test sites. Continue reading
The House overwhelmingly approved a bill Friday that would lift the 40-year-old ban on exporting U.S. crude oil, a restriction that critics say hurts job creation and U.S. national security.
The House approved the bill on a bipartisan 261-159 vote. However, the White House has threatened to veto the bill should it make its way to the president’s desk, calling it unnecessary and arguing that the decision rests with the commerce secretary. Continue reading

It is a matter of provable fact that psychedelics are the safest compounds within the modern drug culture. The strongest hallucinogen known to man dimethyltryptamine is actually less damaging to the human body than America’s favorite fix, caffeine.
Many substances that are deeply embedded in American culture such as alcohol, caffeine, nicotine or pharmaceutical narcotics are in fact toxins, while psychedelic compounds are actually physically benign and many times already occur naturally in human chemistry. What this means is that the chemicals which make psychedelics do what they do are actually naturally occurring compounds that are chemically suited for your body. Continue reading

Russia started attacking ISIS and the Al Qaeda linked Jihadists less than two weeks ago. Iraq and Afghanistan have already asked for Putin’s help. The world has caught on to the fact that the US funded both Al Qaeda and ISIS. It has been against American law since 9-11-2001 for Americans to give aid to Al Qaeda. Yet our State Department has been buying white 4 wheel drive Toyota trucks with US Special Forces style gun mounts that wound up with ISIS in Iraq. Yesterday while Russia was bombing ISIS and other Jihadist terrorists, two US F-16s bombed a Syrian power station near Aleppo killing innocent civilians just like they did at that hospital in Afghanistan.

So says the latest reinvented panderer, a nefarious siren, from the clan of America’s most disgraced political family. What a legacy from the extended progeny of the dysfunctional. But she is not speaking about mere policy direction. No; she is consumed with offending the common sense of the residents in “The Old Line State“. Their motto is “Fatti maschii, parole femine” which can be interpreted as “strong deeds, gentle words” – it used to be interpreted as “manly deeds, womanly words” but it was officially reinterpreted in January 2001.
