“A documentary recently released by Japan’s public broadcaster NHK has triggered heated discussions and calls for reflection in Japanese society. The documentary, titled The Truth of Harbin Unit 731, reveals the crimes committed by Unit 731, a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II.” […]
If there was still any doubt that Antifa and hard-left elements were just as eager for violence in Charlottesville as any right-winger in attendance — Nazi or not — here is video we captured on-scene showing clergy members led by Cornel West being taunted by Antifa. The clergy had formed a human wall between Antifa […]
I forgot to mention in my post “Goldman Sachs Report and China’s New Financial Lifeforms” the phenomenal rise of China’s middle class: The 300-500 million emergent and rapidly-growing middle class is propelling new realities, including financial technology. It is a socio-economic blockbuster that will be felt throughout the world for a long time to come. […]

Below is unedited raw footage of a stand-off between protestors and counter-protestors in Charlottesville. Each side attempts to push back the opposition, shouting threats and insults, and flinging objects ranging from plastic water bottles to rocks.
Skip to 8:17 for some of the tenser moments
The Unite the Right rally was slated to begin at noon, but for anyone arriving by then, the rally and main skirmishes would have already been over. Lines of riot police remain, and tensions continue to simmer despite the clash being largely broken up. Trash, paint, upturned trash cans, and newspaper litters the streets around […]
Tomorrow’s Unite the Right rally is promising to be an historic event, even if no violence breaks out. Police are already setting up barricades, indicating the local government has fully accepted the fact that demonstrators are vowing to gather in Emancipation Park despite being refused their permit. Later, however, a federal judge would overturn the […]
Harry Succeeds Philip On August 1, Prince Philip, more prominently the Duke of Edinburgh, officially “retired”. It was also announced that Prince Harry will assume Philip’s official duties. The following report makes one wonder if Harry has thereby also stepped into Philip’s unofficial (but far more powerful and dark) role as the Keeper Of The […]
Update: Officials in Charlottesville appear to have pulled the permit for “Unite the Right” protestors to demonstrate in Emancipation park. However, rally organizers have indicated they are determined to move forward as planned. This means Unite the Right is likely to end up being an illegal demonstration, creating skyrocketing chances for unrest. On Saturday, August […]

Explosive new developments ignored by most mainstream media outlets have confirmed slain DNC staffer Seth Rich as the leaker who gave incriminating DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

With major “newspapers of record” like the New York Times and Washington Post facing the very real threat of financial destruction, they’ve more than ever become Deep State vanity presses owned by mega-billionaries like Carlos Slim (NYT) and Jeff Bezos (WaPo).
Worse yet, due to doors opened by the likes of NAFTA and Clinton-era telecommunications reform, nearly all major news media have been consolidated into only six mega-conglomerates. Perhaps, then, the further degradation of an already-troubled field shouldn’t be surprising.
Co-opting popular characters and viral keywords like Minnie Mouse, Elsa from Frozen, and “superhero IRL,” the videos feature depraved repeating themes and imagery depicting cheating/infidelity, pregnancy/abortion, simulated sex, dungeon torture, injections, and even defacation and scat eating in their content.
Collectively the channels have many millions of views, presumably from children, but adults who have discovered the channels have found their content incoherent as well as highly disturbing.
What Would Janet Do? Likely Nothing Investors have a light economic data week ahead as all eyes point to the Fed and earnings. On the economic front, we have 2Q GDP.
