Two days before his untimely death in a Manhattan jail, Jeffrey Epstein signed a will listing over $577 million in assets - around $18 million more than stated weeks ago in court filings. The assets were transferred to a trust as of August 8, ensuring that the details of how his fortune will be distributed are kept private. Epstein listed his brother Mark as the lone heir and his longtime lawyer Darren Indyke and close friend Richard Kahn as executors, according to the , which obtained a copy of the will and trust filed in the US Virgin Islands. That said, the document states that Mark only gets something if Jeffrey hadn't created the will. What's more, Epstein's heirs will have to split up whatever is left after a spate of accusers filed l.

“Want to be rich? Start a good business. Want to be really rich ? Become a socialist.”- Unknown. There is no shortage of empirical data that socialism fails every time it has been tried, and leaves the largest body count in it’s wake. Dr. Kristian Niemtietz’s documents the three distinct stages socialism goes through. The Honeymoon Phase. The What Aboutery Phase. And finally, when all that’s left is a smoking crater and a pile of bodies, “the not real socialism phase”. Niemietz documents each occurrence of socialism in the 20th century in his book to show that central planning and redistribution simply do not work. Then there’s the which tallies up the body count of the socialist regimes of the 20th century (over 100 million souls). So it’s cu.

A new report from the sheds further light on Jeffrey Epstein's brief stint in a Palm Beach County Jail following his 2008 guilty plea for siliciting a minor for sex. Purchase logs reveal that the dead pedophile purchased thousands of dollars of items while in the can - including two pairs of small women's panties, size 5. It was just one of thousands of dollars of purchases made by the disgraced financier while in jail after pleading guilty in 2008 to soliciting a minor for sex, according to a purchase log.

One of the arguments presented by opponents (and in some cases, supporters) of MMT is why pay any taxes if the US government can just print all the money (i.e. issue debt) it will need to balance its budget (by definition, if federal income taxes are zero, all revenues would come from the sale of debt). And while the US is still several years away (at least) from full helicopter money, i.e. MMT, which would be required to pay for such whims as, say, the Green New Deal, it wouldn't be surprising if overtures were made by politicians to trim taxes in order to either boost the economy or their approval rating. According to the WaPo, one such idea is currently percolating in the White House, where several senior officials have reportedly begun

What are we supposed to think when rather large earthquakes start happening in places that aren’t supposed to have large earthquakes? 2019 has been quite a year for seismic activity already , and I understand that we should expect to see earthquakes in diverse places, but if someone told me that the U.S. was just hit by a significant quake one of the last places that I would check would be Kansas.

Some 1.7 million protesters gathered in Hong Kong's Victoria Park Sunday afternoon to mark the 11th consecutive weekend of pro-democracy protests in a city-state that, for decades, functioned as a quasi-independent city state and financial gateway to the world's second largest economy. But as the backlash to the extradition bill has shown, Hong Kongers aren't simply going to sit back and passively allow Beijing to impose China's signature style of technocratic-autocratic rule, though the 2014 Umbrella Movement failed to stop the Communist Party from installing its preferred leadership team. Thus, as for military drills that have so far failed to cow the restive Hong Kong public (though they have rolled back the aggression, for now, at least.

The Fed has a math problem and so do markets. Everyone from the president on down is demanding rate cuts, lots of them. Fed Chair Jay Powell called the July rate cut and it’s bought the Fed precious little as markets sold off in the wake off more trade tensions and yields continued to plummet. And now markets demand more. Lots more. A 50b rate cut appears to be the bare minimum markets demand for September. Call it pricing it in, and the implication is clear: The Fed can’t ill afford to disappoint. And what markets are currently pricing in is anything but a “mid-cycle” adjustment:. That’s nearly a 100bp rate cut over the next year. President Trump of course wants a 100bp now AND some QE sprinkled on top of that:. .....The Fed Rate, over a fai.

Just as the administration was apparently trying to pump the market even higher with an idiotic story about possible payroll tax cuts (and during a session that was, for a brief time, focused on German fiscal stimulus, no less) a report about State AGs moving ahead on an anti-trust probe of big tech has emerged to hammer futures lower. If accurate, the report would represent one of the most significant escalations in the push to break up the big tech companies yet.

Just like they did with loyalists to Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro, and in other countries as well (Iran comes to mind), Twitter and Facebook have identified networks of "bots" or fake accounts purportedly set up by the mainland government with the intent to "sow discord" during the Hong Kong protests that are entering their 11th week. Twitter said Monday in a blog post that it had suspended nearly 950 accounts, while identifying another 200,000 that it believed might be members of 'botnets'. What :. This disclosure consists of 936 accounts originating from within the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

In the latest sign that absolutely nothing makes sense anymore, WeWork filed formal regulatory paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission last week, officially notifying the world that it will soon be going public. If you haven’t heard of WeWork (or it’s parent– ‘The We Company’), it’s a real estate company that owns practically zero real estate. Instead, they lease vast amounts of office space in commercial buildings on long-term contracts, and then sub-lease that space to individual tenants– often small businesses– with short-term contracts. It’s essentially the same business model as Regus – which provides virtual office services, business addresses, and short-term office space, in pretty much every major city around the world.

A transportation recession often precedes a recession for the entire economy, and while the debate about when the U.S. economy as a whole will plunge into a recession , the truth is that the debate is over regarding when a transportation recession will begin. Throughout 2017 and most of 2018, U.S. freight shipment volume was booming, and that was a very strong sign that overall economic activity was rising.

US equity markets are excitedly recovering last week's losses as hope once again washes across global markets that lower rates, fiscal recklessness will save the world. The explicit driver of the bounce is yet another short-squeeze - the second biggest since the start of 2019. Source: Bloomberg.

Via Greg Hunter’s ,. Former CIA Officer and whistleblower Kevin Shipp thinks the Fed rate-hikes throughout Trump’s two and a half years in office are a way to “get the President.”Trump has been highly critical of the Fed, and he says it is to blame if the economy tanks. Shipp explains, “God bless Donald Trump because he is the first President to call out the Fed like he is doing .". "He has got the Fed shaking in their boots. When the Fed gags its board of directors and its members, that is not good. Something not good is going on. Perhaps they are bringing the interest rates down to zero. Perhaps it’s the fact we are entering into, not only U.S., but a global recession. So, they have put the lid on any comments coming out, and I think they
