Bombshell: “The House Is Going To Be Rocked In The Next 72 Hours… Over A Dozen Congressional Members May Resign” Over Sex Scandals
What started as an attack on then-candidate Donald J. Trump leading into the 2016 Presidential election appears to have been flipped completely on its head as scores of media, music, movie and political resignations over sex scandals have left shock waves across the country.
Not a week has gone by without some high ranking member of the star-studded elite getting taken down by what overtly looks to be a viral movement under the #MeToo hashtag.
It’s no secret that back in the 1990’s President Bill Clinton signed into law a bill that would shield sexually deviant Congressional members from being revealed to the public.
Well, in 1995, which I remind you was right at the time Bill Clinton was playing with stinky cigars in the Oval Orifice, Congress decided to pass a law which can be properly called “Congressional Protection For Sexual Assault Act of 1995.” Of course it’s not really entitled that; it’s allegedly called “The Congressional Accountability Act of 1995.”

Domestic flights and Athens transport were disrupted buy the strike action and ships remained docked for 24 hours.
Some public services were also shut down by the industrial action organised by Greece’s largest labour unions, private sector GSEE and its public sector counterpart ADEDY.
About 10,000 striking workers, pensioners and students marched peacefully to parliament where lawmakers have been debating the 2018 budget. A vote on the draft is scheduled for next week.
They chanted: “Take your bailouts and get out of here.”
Protesters held banners reading “Shame on you!” and “No more lies!”.
Greece’s fiscal goals have been approved by its European Union lenders and the International Monetary Fund.
Under its latest bailout review, the government has agreed to cut spending further, reduce pensions, complete an evaluation of public (more…)
Something snapped in Japan today.
With Asian stocks finally breaking out a decade-long doldrum, and hitting record highs earlier in the session, and with Japanese equities starting off the session on the right foot and continuing their recent ascent which until Wednesday had seen them rise on 23 of the past 25 days, Japanese shares suddenly lurched on Thursday, plunging sharply lower after dramatic intraday swings took the Nikkei and Topix indexes to multi-decade highs only to drop in the afternoon on futures-driven trading ahead of the following day’s options settlement. All told, in a little over an hour, what had been another solid rally in Japanese stocks turned into some rather sharp clear-air turbulence, with the Nikkei 225 Stock Average plunging about 3.6% from the afternoon-session high to its low for the day.
It all started off well enough: in the morning session, the Topix notched a new 26-year high and the Nikkei share average broke the 23,000 level for the first time since January 1992, as financial and securities shares rallied.
Then something changed and in a gut-churning (more…)
