The state Senate’s Economic Development and International … Continue reading Michigan could soon legalize fully driverless cars

The Central Banks Are Now Ready To Launch Their ‘Brave New World’

The latest Federal Reserve meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, is over and so far it would seem that the general investment world is not too happy about Janet Yellen’s statements as well as those of other Fed officials.  In fact, many people are looking for some simple clarity as to what the central bank is actually planning.

Most importantly, investors want to know why the Fed is suddenly so adamant about continued interest rate hikes in 2016.  Only a couple months ago, almost everyone (including alternative economic analysts) was arguing that the Fed would “never dare” to raise rates again so soon, and that there was no chance of a rate hike so close to the presidential elections.

Instead, investors have been greeted with surging rate-hike odds as Fed officials openly hint of another boost, probably in September. Continue reading “The Central Banks Are Now Ready To Launch Their ‘Brave New World’”

Ramsey Orta, Activist Who Filmed Eric Garner’s Death, Needs Your Help

WeCopWatch activist Ramsey Orta is expected to turn himself in to prison in early October for charges he says were trumped-up following his filming of the death of Eric Garner.  

The man who filmed the infamous video of Eric Garner’s death at the hands of the New York Police Department will soon become the only person who was present at Garner’s death to face prison time. Ramsey Orta is heading to prison for four years based on charges he says are a direct retaliation for filming Garner’s death.

“The man who filmed the police killing of Eric Garner, Ramsey Orta, is now heading to jail for four years on unrelated charges—making him the only person at the scene of Garner’s killing who will serve jail time,” TIME reported last summer. “Last week Orta took a plea deal on weapons and drug charges. He says he has been repeatedly arrested and harassed by cops since he filmed the fatal police chokehold nearly two years ago.”

Ramsey told TIME he was living on State Island at the time of the death and  knew Eric Garner. After filming the death by chokehold and releasing it to the media, Ramsey began reporting harassment and intimidation from the police. According to TIME, Orta was arrested three times since August 2014. He says he was the victim of an attempted poisoning while he was behind bars.

Awareness Of Fed Credibility Problems Going Mainstream

The nation’s pre-eminent central planners just held their annual gathering at an exclusive resort just outside Jackson Hole, Wyoming and discussed how to interfere even more deeply in markets. In a speech entitled “The Federal Reserve’s Monetary Policy Toolkit: Past, Present and Future,” Fed chair Janet Yellen outlined why zero interest rate policy (ZIRP), purchases of toxic mortgage securities, and monetization of Treasury debt just aren’t adequate. Officials must add negative interest rates (NIRP) and purchases of even more sketchy assets to their “toolkit.”

Yellen has spent more than a year floating the idea of negative rates, so it is no surprise she is hustling the ludicrous policy once again. In fact, very little of what she said Friday is new. It was the usual mess of contradictions. Continue reading “Awareness Of Fed Credibility Problems Going Mainstream”

Outgoing Commissioner Bill Bratton says NYPD won’t reveal any actions on cop who choked Eric Garner

The city’s top cop said Wednesday that the NYPD will not release the outcome of any disciplinary case against the cop who fatally choked Eric Garner on Staten Island in 2014.
