Days before the military coup d’état in Zimbabwe, one of Mugabe’s sons uploaded a snapchat displaying his £45,000 diamond watch with £200 champagne, according to Daily Mail. The story went viral fueling anger of Zimbabweans as the country suffers from an economic collapse with a 95% unemployment rate.
The video shows Chatunga Bellarmine Mugabe in a South African nightclub pouring bottles of expensive champagne onto his diamond watch. Both of Mugabe’s parasitical elite sons are living the highlife in South Africa
Federal groping-on-steroids is not making flying safer. TSA is a farce and a menace, and should be privatized…
On the campaign trail last year, Donald Trump derided the Transportation Security Administration as a “total disaster.” But his administration is making TSA more intrusive and abusive while its 42,000 screeners remain as incompetent as ever.
New TSA screening guidelines will likely make Thanksgiving travel a disaster for legions of Americans – and the
In a decision that was widely anticipated, the Trump administration has decided to end immigration protections for Haitians who migrated to the US following a devastating earthquake that laid waste to Haiti back in 2010. Now, the 50,000 Haitians still living in the US under the protections have 18 months to leave, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
As the Washington Post pointed out, the decision was made to appease immigration hard-liners who insist the
Following the release of the identity of the FBI informant, Justice Department officials in recent days said that informant William Campbell’s prior work won’t shed much light on the U.S. government’s controversial decision in 2010 to approve Russia’s purchase of the Uranium One mining company and its substantial U.S. assets.
However, The Hill’s John Solomon has reviewed 1000s of new memos from an FBI informant that clearly show illegal activity surrounding a Russian plot
Earlier this summer we noted Uber’s staggering 2Q cash burn of $600 million which equates to roughly $7 million in net cash outflows every single day. The staggering, and consistently growing, cash burn figures resulted in several mutual funds announcing they would slash their valuations of the struggling rideshare company by up to 15%.
Of course, if cash burn was a concern before for Uber investors before then they should probably take note
For the past couple of weeks we’ve written frequently about the sudden political turmoil in Saudi Arabia that resulted in two Saudi princes being killed in a span of just 24 hours and dozens others being detained on charges of corruption while having their bank accounts frozen. Here are couple of our most recent background posts on the topic:
Forget about big hair, Ray-Bans, and Donkey Kong. Don’t even think about Live-Aid, Thriller, and E.T. Above all else, the 1980s were the gravy days of the money supply aggregates.
Beginning in late 1979, the Fed built its policy approach around the aggregates – primarily M1 but occasionally M2, and policy makers also monitored M3 while experimenting with M1B and, later, MZM. But those were just the “official” figures.
As we noted in December, the foundation, which has been the subject of several controversies and investigations, was originally set up to give away the proceeds from Trump’s bestselling book, “The Art of the Deal.” As The Hill writes, the
It seems like not a day goes by without new allegations of sexual abuse or harassment being levied against a major figure in media or entertainment – and Monday was no exception.
Earlier in the day, the New York Times announced it would suspend White House reporter Glenn Thrush following reports that he harassed and propositioned young female reporters working with him at Politico and the Times.
In the early hours of Thursday, November 2, the Maduro regime certified its latest failure with what they promised would never happen: technical default. With his usual arrogance, Maduro issued a “decree” demanding “the refinancing and restructuring of the debt as of November 3.” That is, default.
The bad news for investors or high-yield hunters is that the likelihood of being swindled
Last week, special counsel Robert Muller and his team subpoenaed the Trump campaign asking campaign officials to handover Russian-related documents. The subpoena was first reported by the WSJ on Thursday, which the source said, the campaign has already turned over 20,000 documents, and was not clear why the subpoena was issued. Mueller and his team of investigators are probing for any collusion between President Trump and ‘the Russians’ during the 2016 presidential election.
“Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.” – Ecclesiastes 1:2, King James Version (attributed to King Solomon in his old age)
This week’s letter will take a look at the growing number of ridiculous, inane, and otherwise nonsensical absurdities that fill the daily economic headlines. I have gone from the occasional smile to scratching my head now and then to “WTF” moments several times
People are always on the lookout for easy ways and quick results for weight loss. They try out various diets, guaranteed to help them lose those pesky pounds. The diets do work – but for a short period of time. And eventually, you go back to your old habits, piling
For the most part, when we read textbooks or try to figure out the jargon associated with nutrition, it tends to confuse or even alienate us. It certainly did that to me in the beginning when I tried to make sense of it all. And what a shame that was,
Everybody knows that stress leads to disease, but rarely do we talk about the happy “flip side” of this— learning how to calm stress responses kicks in the “relaxation response” that leads to health, more energy and less risk of disease. Studies over the last ten years have demonstrated this
(Natural News) Gulf War Illness (GWI), or Gulf War Syndrome, is the name given to a cluster of chronic symptoms affecting Gulf War veterans and civilian workers. The cause behind these symptoms — which range from fatigue to joint pains to memory problems — has been studied
