Stocks Slide on Unemployment Report, Dollar Will Continue to Weaken

Posted on Aug 10, 2010 in Economic News

Stocks slipped Friday after the US government report showed more jobs were lost last month than expected. Quincy Krosby, chief market strategist at Prudential Financial, and David Spika, vice president and investment strategist at WHG Funds, discussed their insights.

“The job report this morning is confirmation of why you want to invest in companies with exposure to faster-growing foreign markets,” Spika told CNBC.

Hayden’s Note:

Unless you are a full time trader, broker or investment guru, exposing your money to the international market while the dollar is so volatile is simply crazy. 

The employment and job numbers were so low because this is the first major report since they laid off all of the Census workers!  I said this back in January, March, April… they inflated the numbers to look good and buy themselves a few more months.  Now we are seeing that we actually have a net loss since the beginning of the year – unlike Obama’s claim that they created 130,000 jobs each month in the first and second quarter (or some other nonsensical number).  These were Census workers being hired one month, then 6 weeks later they were “re-hired” to be trained. ...

Goldman Sachs Reveals Where Bailout Cash Went Under Threat of Subpoena

Posted on Jul 26, 2010 in Economic News

via email

Goldman Sachs sent $4.3 billion in federal tax money to 32 entities, including many overseas banks, hedge funds and pensions, according to information made public Friday night.
Goldman Sachs disclosed the list of companies to the Senate Finance Committee after a threat of subpoena from Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Ia.

Asked the significance of the list, Grassley said, “I hope it’s as simple as taxpayers deserve to know what happened to their money.”

He added, “We thought originally we were bailing out AIG. Then later on … we learned that the money flowed through AIG to a few big banks, and now we know that the money went from these few big banks to dozens of financial institutions all around the world.”

Grassley said he was reserving judgment on the appropriateness of U.S. taxpayer money ending up overseas until he learns more about the 32 entities.

Goldman Sachs (GS) received $5.55 billion from the government in fall of 2008 as payment for then-worthless securities it held in AIG. Goldman had already hedged its risk that the securities would go bad....

Cop Will Not Face Charges in G20 Ian Tomlinson Death – Video & Hayden’s Note

Posted on Jul 23, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

The police officer caught on video during last year’s G20 protests striking a man who later died will not face criminal charges, the Crown Prosecution Service announced today.

Hayden’s Note:

The video below shows the last moments of Ian Tomlinson’s life.  He was near the G20 protests when he did not move fast enough for the police officer barking at him, which earned him a baton strike to the knees and then shoved to the ground.  Ian died shortly thereafter. 

Some might watch this video and think, “Damn protestors!  You got what you deserved!  Stop being a problem!” and other such nonsense.  I was one of those people once upon a time.  I felt as though most protestors were just trouble makers.  When I was a police officer, I thought those who exercised civil disobediance typically got what they deserved; tear gas, riot cops, etc. 

I’ve long since been corrected in my way of thinking.  Civil disobediance is a DUTY and dare I call it a right?  Iam Tomlinson was reacting rather slowly to the officer’s commands. ...

Ron Paul Hits Gov’t Oil Spill Efforts – Video

Ron Paul Hits Government Oil Spill Efforts

With the first tar balls from the Gulf oil spill now washing ashore in Galveston, Texas, Rep. Ron Paul, whose district includes the affected area, said Monday the federal government is not doing enough in the recovery effort.

“They have done a lot to interfere,” Paul told National Political Correspondent Jessica Yellin on CNN’s “John King USA.”

He said local residents and state officials in Louisiana and Mississippi have complained that some federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency and the Fish and Wildlife Service, have not acted quickly enough to relax some regulations to fast-track recovery initiatives.

Federal officials have previously defended their efforts.

Another area of criticism by Paul concerned the deployment of National Guard troops to help in the cleanup.

“If all our states had their Guard units back here maybe they would have the manpower to do more to help clean up the beaches and prevent the oil from coming in, but, no, our Guard units are all over the world fighting wars we don’t need,” said Paul, a critic of the U.S....

MSNBC’s Ratigan: Stock Market an ‘Obviously Corrupt’ Fraud

Posted on Jul 01, 2010 in Economic News

Source: Raw Story

On his afternoon show Tuesday, MSNBC host Dylan Ratigan explained why he believes the usual explanations given in the media for why the stock market went up or down on a given day are nonsense.

“Seventy percent of the volume [of trades on the stock market] is computers that are run by the banks playing ping pong with stocks for 10 seconds at at time,” Ratigan said.

“The stock market at this point, which used to be a reflection of the future value of actual businesses in this country, has been turned by our government and our banks into little more than a paper shredding facility [about which] we can make up reasons why it goes up and down,” Ratigan said. “But when the computers … at the banks are controlling the action, most everything else is kind of silly.”

Ratigan concluded that it’s time to create an “alternative investment structure” that would allow people to invest their money without putting it “into the obviously corrupt stock market in this country.”

Ratigan was referring to the relatively new phenomenon known as high-frequency trading: High-speed computer programs that are able to “peek” at stock trades less than a second before the trades are made....

Check out the middle of part 2, which shows just flat out shocking video and police action.  This sort of police state totalitarianism makes me glad I became aware of what’s going on in the world and left the police department.

Clinton: Navy Should Blow up the Well!

Posted on Jun 28, 2010 in Featured Articles, Global & National News

Video Source: CNN

Commentary: Kevin Hayden

Bill Clinton defends President Obama and suggests the US Navy should blow up the Deepwater Horizon oil site in order to seal it.  His theory is that a ballistic explosion should cave in the “hole” and seal it under tons and tons of debris and rock. – Hayden’s Note: The United States has several different weapon systems that can almost mimic the effects of a nuclear blast but in a smaller, localized explosion without the radiation.  This may or may not do anything but widen the gap and cause a near-instantaneous “sinkhole.”  Then again, I’m not a government paid scientist, so who knows…?

Ottawa Hills Police Officer Shoots Unarmed Motorcyclist: Includes Video & Hayden’s Shooting Analysis

Posted on May 14, 2010 in Police, Military, & War

Kevin Hayden – TruthisTreason.net

Being a former police officer, I can’t help but offer my analysis of this traffic stop.  Many times, video cameras are the only way to learn from mistakes and are used extensively in law enforcement training.  Typically, Officers will review videos like this and discuss what happened, critique it, tear it apart and try to figure out what went wrong and why.

During my time on the streets, I dealt with dozens of potential shooting situations.  I came very close to pulling the trigger several times but luckily didn’t have to.  Some of those days I could have very easily called it justifiable.  Officers are given only a few milliseconds to determine life and death responses.  It takes a keen awareness of your surroundings, cover, and even concealment options to wear a gun everyday and enforce the law.  It’s my opinion that the Officer portrayed in the video is a rookie or has not encountered many felony stops in his career.

I say this for several reasons, most which are easy to say afterwards but I would still hope this Officer at least thought of these options before pulling the trigger. ...

Gerald Celente on Greece Bailout & Violence

The financial crisis in Greece has taken another dark turn as rioters have taken to the streets in defiance to “austerity” measures that have been imposed upon the people. Three bank members were killed during the riots when a bank in Athens was set on fire during the clash with police.

The riot came in the aftermath of a 24 hour strike that left thousands of flights grounded, shut down ports, schools, and left many hospitals understaffed.

Gerald Celente, a renowned trends forecaster predicts an economic collapse here in America before the spring of 2011. Gerald believes the collapse will not only come to the U.S., but will affect the other nations around the globe as well.

Gerald stated in an interview on RTNews May 5, 2010, that a second revolution is starting in the U.S.

” the second American Revolution has already begun, it began in 2009, on April 15th with the tea parties and the tax protests. They were laughed at by the major media. Then we saw it again in july of 2009, on the 4th of July, when hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets.

120 PSI Steampunk Cupcake Cannon – Filmed at 700 Frames per Second

This is a video of a steampunky-looking cannon that was made to shoot cupcakes at people’s faces. It’s pretty much my dream machine, provided you use [Wedding CupCake from the Cupcake Factory in New Orleans.]

Portland’s Kamp Grizzly developed a steam-punk style pneumatic cupcake cannon and set the stage for eating frosty delights at 120psi. The blasting buffet was documented in at 700fps coming off the Phantom HD Gold. As the evening shook down, cupcake enthusiasts continued to step in front of the cannon and camera. Some shaking in their boots, others perched in zen-like states, ALL were covered in delicious frosting, spongy cake, and showered in a mist of sprinkles.

Mmmm, sounds like some delectable fun, doesn’t it? Reminds me of the time I volunteered for the pie-toss at the local fair. You know how many people hit me with pies that day? Zero, I choke slammed them all before they got the chance.
