Billionaire Donald Trump Says The Markets Are False And Will Collapse on January 1st

Posted: 18 Sep 2016 12:46 AM PDT

This week Donald Trump said, “If it was a choice between the right decision and a political decision… The Fed would choose the political decision.” He then stated that the market “will remain at artificially high levels until January 1st”. This came not long after he slammed Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen in a CNBC interview when he told the interviewer that she should be “ashamed” of her “very political” and “false” market.

HERE WE GO AGAIN: IED Explodes In New York City; 29 People Injured: Bomb Was “An Intentional Act” Mayor Says

Posted: 18 Sep 2016 12:25 AM PDT

from Zero Hedge:

A “major explosion” has been reported in New York City at 135 23rd Street (between Sixth and Seventh Avenue).  The NYPD has confirmed 29 people were injured by the blast and 1 is in serious condition.  NYPD is investigating a 2nd “pressure cooker” device with cell phone and wires attached on 27th Street

Summary of the latest news surrounding the explosion of an IED in midtown Manhattan on Saturday night:

  • A powerful explosion caused by what authorities say was a homemade bomb set off in a sidewalk dumpster on 23rd Street (between 6h and 7th Ave.) at 8:30pm on Saturday night, injured at least 29 people; a second explosive device was also found four blocks away. The explosion, which occurred around 8:30 p.m., prompted the shutdown of a wide swath of Manhattan south of Midtown. The Police Department said at 1:15 a.m. Sunday that 14th Street to 32nd Street was closed to traffic between Fifth and Eighth Avenues until further notice.
  • The explosion shattered windows, damaged cars and sent crowds running from the scene. "I heard a big boom," said Luke McConnell, who was visiting from Colorado and had been headed toward a restaurant on West 27th Street. "I felt it, like a concussive wave, heading towards me." "Then there was a cloud of white smoke that came from the left side of 23rd Street near Sixth," he said. "There was no fire, just smoke."
  • A law enforcement official said investigators were trying to figure out who was behind the explosion and what the motivations might have been. "It likely came from an improvised device," said one city official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a continuing investigation. "We don't understand the target or the significance of it. It's by a pile of Dumpsters on a random sidewalk."
  • Mayor Bill de Blasio speaking at a news conference at the scene, said "injuries are significant” but for the moment none were life-threatening. The mayor called the explosion "an intentional act" but initially said there was no connection to terrorism. He cautioned that the authorities had just begun their investigation into the blast, which took place just days after the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. "Whatever the cause," Mr. de Blasio said, "New Yorkers will not be intimidated."
  • Many of the injuries were caused by shrapnel from the explosion, which witnesses said seemed to have come from a sidewalk dumpster on West 23rd Street, whose images quickly proliferated on Twitter.

  • A second IED device, found on West 27th Street, was described as resembling a pressure cooker like the one used in the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013, an official said. A senior police official confirmed that photographs of the device shared on social media, which showed a silver piece of cookware with wires and a cellphone attached, were authentic. The official said the Police Department's bomb squad was taking the device to a department facility, where robots would inspect it. The official said investigators "don't have any suspects" and were not questioning anyone.

Top Russian Pol CRUSHES Hillary: ‘Has a Major Illness – She’s a Witch, a Vicious Snake’

Posted: 17 Sep 2016 06:30 PM PDT

from Russia Insider:

One of Russia’s most popular, prominent and visible politicians, conservative nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky, roundly ridiculed Hillary Clinton on a major talk show Monday evening, accusing her of being completely unfit to become president, while praising Donald Trump.

He insisted that leading doctors from “various countries” had “confirmed” to him that she has a very serious chronic illness, and that her excuse of having pneumonia was a lot of nonsense.

Russia Insider has been covering Hillary’s health collapse closely, and we have argued that the most likely case, based on mounting public evidence, is that she has Parkinson’s disease. The article features two detailed videos by an American doctor presenting very convincing evidence that Hillary is suffering from Parkinsons.

Pointing out that she had a major collapse on Sunday, he bellowed to an applauding studio audience:

“A person like that shouldn’t be allowed to be the manager of a bathhouse (banya)!, much less run a country!”.

Zhirinovsky’s comic timing is hard to convey in text, so we highly recommend watching the video – it is very entertaining, and shows how theatrical Russian politics are.

He argued that she was a bitter, angry, unstable woman, and that she would rush to war with Russia, and that putting her in charge of a nuclear superpower was the height of stupidity:

“What if she has to decide – to bomb or not to bomb? And at that moment she gets the shakes!?”, he roared to a laughing audience. “And then falls down!? passes out!?” – he continued. “What if she presses the wrong button!” bobbing his head, mimicking Hillary falling on the nuclear command codes.

Pointing at a photo of Hillary looking angry he shouted: “look at her! … In America they call her a witch!, – Hey, it’s not me sayin’ it … Americans say this! … She’s a witch! Look at her! … We need Trump! Trump! That’s what we have to fight for!”

He went on to ridicule the other panelists were accepting the idea that Hillary only had pneumonia insisting that it was much more grave than that, shouting at them:

“Nonsense! She didn’t slip! Her brain switched off! Give me a break! They had to CARRY a presidential candidate to her van! What the heck?! She sneezes?, – no big deal. She coughs? – that’s OK too, But she passed out!! In broad daylight!! In the middle of her work day!! A presidential candidate passes out!”

“Pneumonia is only a symptom of a much worse sickness she is suffering from! She didn’t just catch a cold and get pneumonia! Its 80 degrees in New York! You could go swimming! It’s a symptom of some very serious diseases, of which she has several! She shouldn’t be hiding this! She should tell the whole world the truth! … You guys are being way too kind to her, too much sympathy…! What the heck! Is she your next door neighbor at your dacha!!!? (summer home) (laughter) She’ll press that nuclear button! – She’ll blow you all to Kingdom Come!”

IED Explodes In New York City; 29 People Injured: Bomb Was "An Intentional Act" Mayor Says

Posted: 17 Sep 2016 06:30 PM PDT

Summary of the latest news surrounding the explosion of an IED in midtown Manhattan on Saturday night:

  • A powerful explosion caused by what authorities say was a homemade bomb set off in a sidewalk dumpster on 23rd Street (between 6h and 7th Ave.) at 8:30pm on Saturday night, injured at least 29 people; a second explosive device was also found four blocks away. The explosion, which occurred around 8:30 p.m., prompted the shutdown of a wide swath of Manhattan south of Midtown. The Police Department said at 1:15 a.m. Sunday that 14th Street to 32nd Street was closed to traffic between Fifth and Eighth Avenues until further notice.
  • The explosion shattered windows, damaged cars and sent crowds running from the scene. "I heard a big boom," said Luke McConnell, who was visiting from Colorado and had been headed toward a restaurant on West 27th Street. "I felt it, like a concussive wave, heading towards me."

The mayor called the explosion "an intentional act" but initially said there was no connection to terrorism.

The official said the Police Department's bomb squad was taking the device to a department facility, where robots would inspect it. The official said investigators "don't have any suspects" and were not questioning anyone.
  • Video captured before the explosion shows a man crossing "the street in the direction of where the device was found." But no video had yet been obtained clearly showing anyone placing the device in the spot where it detonated. Pressed on who might be responsible for the incident, James P. O'Neill, the police commissioner, said no suspect was in custody. "We are still in the process of trying to figure that out," he said. O'Neill said the authorities had collected video of the explosion but asked the public for any footage they might have, as well as eyewitness accounts and tips. A video of the 23rd Street scene just before the IED went off has been released moments ago:
  • The police commissioner said that residents along 23rd Street were being allowed back in their homes and that there was no need for mandatory evacuations.
  • The White House issued a brief statement saying that President Obama had been briefed on the developing situation in New York.  "The president has been apprised of the explosion in New York City, the cause of which remains under investigation," the statement said. "The president will be updated as additional information becomes available."
  • Both presidential candidates broke from campaign routines to address the issue. Donald J. Trump, weighed in on the news while campaigning in Colorado Springs on Saturday night. "I must tell you that just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what's going on," he said. "But boy, we are living in a time — we better get very tough, folks." Hillary Clinton, was informed of the episode after she gave a speech at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's annual awards dinner, her campaign said.
  • According to the NYT, the explosion was not connected to a blast that happened 11 hours before as reported here, when an improvised device exploded in a garbage can near the course of a charity race that was about to start in a small town on the Jersey Shore. That device went off around 9:30 a.m. near the boardwalk in Seaside Park, N.J., according to the Ocean County sheriff, Michael G. Mastronardy. There were no injuries. The race, the Seaside Semper Five, a five-kilometer run and charity event along the waterfront that raises money for members of the United States Marine Corps and their families, was canceled.

Earlier:

 Update 2: Fox News is reporting a second explosion on 27th street.  The NYPD reportedly moved the media to safety before the blast indicating that it may have been a controlled explosion by police.  The device is believed to be a "pressure cooker" device similar to the one used in the Boston Marathon bombing with a cell phone and wires attached.   

 

 

 

* * *

Update 1:  The NYPD has potentially located a 2nd device on 27th Street in Manhattan.

* * *

An explosion occurred at 8:30PM this evening in New York City at 135 23rd Street (between Sixth and Seventh Avenue).  Early reports suggested the explosion came from an improvised explosive device (IED) stuffed inside a dumpster. 

Mayor De Blasio confirmed at a press conference earlier that the explosion was believed to be an "intentional act" though noted there are no known links to any terrorist organizations at this time.

The NYPD has confirmed that 29 people have sustained injuries and 1 is in serious condition.

The NYPD Counterterrorism Unit has arrived at the scene and is conducting searches for other devices.  At least two buildings were evacuated in the vicinity of the incident.

Earlier today a pipe bomb exploded in Seaside Park, New Jersey, as about 5,000 people were set to run a 5k Marine charity race (see: "Pipe Bomb Explodes At Marine Charity Run In New Jersey").  It is unknown at this time if the two events are linked.

Nassim Taleb Exposes The World's "Intellectual-Yet-Idiot" Class

Posted: 17 Sep 2016 05:10 PM PDT

Authored by Nassim Nichaolss Taleb via Medium.com,

What we have been seeing worldwide, from India to the UK to the US, is the rebellion against the inner circle of no-skin-in-the-game policymaking “clerks” and journalists-insiders, that class of paternalistic semi-intellectual experts with some Ivy league, Oxford-Cambridge, or similar label-driven education who are telling the rest of us 1) what to do, 2) what to eat, 3) how to speak, 4) how to think… and 5) who to vote for.

But the problem is the one-eyed following the blind: these self-described members of the “intelligenzia” can’t find a coconut in Coconut Island, meaning they aren’t intelligent enough to define intelligence and fall into circularities?—?but their main skills is capacity to pass exams written by people like them. With psychology papers replicating less than 40%, dietary advice reversing after 30 years of fatphobia, macroeconomic analysis working worse than astrology, the appointment of Bernanke who was less than clueless of the risks, and pharmaceutical trials replicating at best only 1/3th of the time, people are perfectly entitled to rely on their own ancestral instinct and listen to their grandmothers (or Montaigne and such filtered classical knowledge) with a better track record than these policymaking goons.

Indeed one can see that these academico-bureaucrats wanting to run our lives aren’t even rigorous, whether in medical statistics or policymaking. They cant tell science from scientism?—?in fact in their eyes scientism looks more scientific than real science. (For instance it is trivial to show the following: much of what the Cass-Sunstein-Richard Thaler types?—?those who want to “nudge” us into some behavior?—?much of what they call “rational” or “irrational” comes from their misunderstanding of probability theory and cosmetic use of first-order models.) They are prone to mistake the ensemble for the linear aggregation of its components as we saw in the chapter extending the minority rule.

The Intellectual Yet Idiot is a production of modernity hence has been accelerating since the mid twentieth century, to reach its local supremum today, along with the broad category of people without skin-in-the-game who have been invading many walks of life. Why? Simply, in many countries, the government’s role is ten times what it was a century ago (expressed in percentage of GDP). The IYI seems ubiquitous in our lives but is still a small minority and rarely seen outside specialized outlets, social media, and universities?—?most people have proper jobs and there are not many opening for the IYI.

Beware the semi-erudite who thinks he is an erudite.

The IYI pathologizes others for doing things he doesn’t understand without ever realizing it is his understanding that may be limited. He thinks people should act according to their best interests and he knows their interests, particularly if they are “red necks” or English non-crisp-vowel class who voted for Brexit. When Plebeians do something that makes sense to them, but not to him, the IYI uses the term “uneducated”. What we generally call participation in the political process, he calls by two distinct designations: “democracy” when it fits the IYI, and “populism” when the plebeians dare voting in a way that contradicts his preferences. While rich people believe in one tax dollar one vote, more humanistic ones in one man one vote, Monsanto in one lobbyist one vote, the IYI believes in one Ivy League degree one-vote, with some equivalence for foreign elite schools, and PhDs as these are needed in the club.

 

More socially, the IYI subscribes to The New Yorker. He never curses on twitter. He speaks of “equality of races” and “economic equality” but never went out drinking with a minority cab driver. Those in the U.K. have been taken for a ride by Tony Blair. The modern IYI has attended more than one TEDx talks in person or watched more than two TED talks on Youtube. Not only will he vote for Hillary Monsanto-Malmaison because she seems electable and some other such circular reasoning, but holds that anyone who doesn’t do so is mentally ill.

The IYI has a copy of the first hardback edition of The Black Swan on his shelves, but mistakes absence of evidence for evidence of absence. He believes that GMOs are “science”, that the “technology” is not different from conventional breeding as a result of his readiness to confuse science with scientism.

Typically, the IYI get the first order logic right, but not second-order (or higher) effects making him totally incompetent in complex domains. In the comfort of his suburban home with 2-car garage, he advocated the “removal” of Gadhafi because he was “a dictator”, not realizing that removals have consequences (recall that he has no skin in the game and doesn’t pay for results).

The IYI is member of a club to get traveling privileges; if social scientist he uses statistics without knowing how they are derived (like Steven Pinker and psycholophasters in general); when in the UK, he goes to literary festivals; he drinks red wine with steak (never white); he used to believe that fat was harmful and has now completely reversed; he takes statins because his doctor told him so; he fails to understand ergodicity and when explained to him, he forgets about it soon later; he doesn’t use Yiddish words even when talking business; he studies grammar before speaking a language; he has a cousin who worked with someone who knows the Queen; he has never read Frederic Dard, Libanius Antiochus, Michael Oakeshot, John Gray, Amianus Marcellinus, Ibn Battuta, Saadiah Gaon, or Joseph De Maistre; he has never gotten drunk with Russians; he never drank to the point when one starts breaking glasses (or, preferably, chairs); he doesn’t know the difference between Hecate and Hecuba; he doesn’t know that there is no difference between “pseudointellectual” and “intellectual” in the absence of skin in the game; has mentioned quantum mechanics at least twice in the past 5 years in conversations that had nothing to do with physics; he knows at any point in time what his words or actions are doing to his reputation.

But a much easier marker: he doesn’t deadlift.

Not a IYI

Sandspring Resources Commences 2016 Exploration Campaign

Company Announcement
August 17, 2016

Sandspring Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SSP, US OTC: SSPXF) is pleased to announce commencement of the 2016 exploration campaign at its Toroparu Gold Project in Guyana, South America.

In 2015 the company completed a 3,700-meter diamond drilling program on the promising Sona Hill Prospect, located 5 kilometers southeast of the main Toroparu deposit. Sona Hill is the easternmost gold anomaly in a cluster of 10 gold features located within a 20-by-7-kilometer hydrothermal alteration halo around Toroparu. Drilling at Sona Hill in 2012 and in 2015 intercepted high-grade mineralization in both saprolite and bedrock, and confirmed the continuity and grade potential of the Sona Hill mineralization.

For the remainder of the announcement and highlights of the 2015 drill program:

Gold Standard Continues to Expand North Dark Star High-Grade Deposit

Company Announcement
Wednesday, September 14, 2016

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada -- Gold Standard Ventures Corp. (TSXV: GSV; NYSE MKT:GSV) today announced assay results from two holes, DS16-21 and DS16-04, at the recently discovered North Dark Star oxide gold deposit on its fully-owned and controlled Railroad-Pinion Project in Nevada's Carlin Trend. Results from DS16-21 have increased the width of the deposit and, more importantly, have confirmed that higher-grade oxide mineralization projects up-dip to more shallow depths to the east of DS16-08.

The primary objective of this year's drill program at North Dark Star was to expand the high-grade zone discovered in core hole DS15-13 (15.4 meters of 1.85 gold grams per tonne and 97 meters of 1.61 gold grams per tonne) at the end of last year's drill program. ...
