Stealing Elections Is Easier Than You Can Imagine

Princeton University scientists showed how easy it is to steal elections by tampering with Diebold voting machines:Here's a summary:So did University of California at Santa Barbara computer scientists:So did a documentary filmmaker, to the shock of an election official and poll worker:Indeed, a computer programmer admitted under oath to creating such a vote-switching program:Argonne National Laboratories showed that voting machines can be hacked without any programming knowledge whatsoever … using around $20 worth of hardware:Many videos have also been shot showing votes being switched in real-time. For example:

Note how this machine switches votes even after being "recalibrated":Vote fraud doesn't occur just through electronic shenanigans … Last week local Iowa poll officials were caught on video changing vote tallies:A quick explanation of what you're watching (voter fraud):

The important problem is that the Bernie counters recounted everyone, while the Hillary counter was literally recorded telling someone else that she only added newcomers to the count she had before, and then when asked if she recounted everyone, she lied to the organizer and said "Yes". This means that if anyone left the caucus site who was supporting Bernie, then they were removed by Bernie's recounters, but any Hillary supporter who left the caucus site was treated as though they were still there for the purposes of the recount. Thus, artificial inflation of her numbers occurred unless everyone who left was a Bernie delegate, on top of the Hillary campaign surrogate lying to an election official to cover up her (negligent at best, malicious at worst) mistake.

And they left the recount up to a Yea Nay vote, which is just ridiculous.

The Des Moines Register noted "something smells" in the primaries. Something similar happened in 2012:…

Personal Freedom Versus Political Paternalism

Submitted by Richard Ebeling via EpicTimes.com,

What is the role of government in society? This has been and remains the most fundamental question in all political discussions and debates. Its answer determines the nature of the social order and how people are expected and allowed to interact with one another – on the basis of either force or freedom.

The alternatives are really rather simple. Government may be narrowly limited to perform the essential task of protecting each individual’s right to his life, liberty, and honestly acquired property. Or it may be used to try to modify, influence, or dictate the conduct of the citizenry.

In the first case, the government is assigned the duty of impartial umpire, enforcing the societal rules against assault, murder, robbery, and fraud. All human relationships are to be based on mutual consent and voluntary association and exchange.

In the second case, government is an active player in people’s affairs, using its legitimized power of coercion to determine how the members of the society may live, work, and associate with each other. The government tries to assure certain outcomes or forms of behavior considered desirable by those who wield political authority.

More Government Means Increased Government Force

We need to remember what government ultimately is all about. The Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises concisely explained this:

“Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, of gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen. The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning. Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.”

Under a political regime of liberty, each individual gives purpose and moral compass to his own life. He is treated as independent and self-governing; as long as he does not violate the rights of others he is sovereign over his own affairs. He may choose and act wisely or absurdly, but it is his life to live as he pleases.

If any of us – family members, friends, or just concerned fellow human beings – believe someone has chosen a path to perdition, we may try to persuade him to mend his ways. But we are expected to respect his freedom; we may not threaten or use force to make…

P2P Cracks Start To Show As LendingClub Write-Offs Double Forecasts

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

Peer-to-peer lending is probably a bad idea.

Securitizing peer-to-peer loans is definitely a bad idea.

Despite these virtually irrefutable truths, the P2P industry is thriving and Wall Street’s securitization machine couldn’t be happier about it. As we reported last May, P2P loan volume was set to surpass $76 billion in 2015 and one driver of the boom is demand from the likes of BlackRock, Morgan Stanley, and Goldman, who have all underwritten securitizations of loans originated on P2P platforms like LendingClub, the number one player in the space.

As we noted last summer, P2P loans create the conditions whereby borrowers can refi high-interest debt via personal loans, transferring credit risk from large financial institutions to private lenders in the process.

It’s not entirely clear what the implications of that shift might ultimately be, especially if the market continues to grow rapidly. “One thing,” we said, “is clear”: Using a relatively low-interest P2P loan to pay off a high-interest credit card is no different in principle than using a new credit card that comes with a teaser rate to pay off an old credit card.

In the end, the borrower will very often max out the old card again and thus end up with twice the original amount of debt.

The same dynamic applies to P2P lending. “So what’s to stop consumers from levering their credit cards back up?” Bloomberg asked last year. “Such behavior could spell bad news for investors in P2P loans if an interest rate hike or an unforeseen shock pressures borrowers,” Michael Tarkan, an equities analyst at Compass Point Research said.

“We’ve created a mechanism to refinance a credit card into an unsecured personal loan,” he added. “This may prove to be a superior model, but we just don’t know because it hasn’t been tested yet through a full credit cycle.”

No, we “just don’t know”, but we may be about to find out because a new presentation from LendingClub indicates that the cracks are starting to show. “LC Advisors, an investment adviser owned by LendingClub that helps people buy loans arranged by the company, said last week in a presentation that some of the debt is ‘underperforming vs. expectations,’” Bloomberg wrote on Friday. “A chart on one of the

Chinese Factory Worker Explains What “The Government Is Most Fearful Of”

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

No it is not, a slowing economy crippled by 346% in debt/GDP; it’s not the artificially high exchange rate (which was pegged to a dollar when it was plunging during QE1-3 and is now soaring) yet which China can’t aggressively lower either as that would mean a disorderly flight of capital from the mainland; it’s not the feedback loop of plunging commodity prices and highly levered domestic corporation which can not pay their annual interest expense payments; it’s not the recently burst housing bubble; nor is it the burst stock market bubble which recently popped, or the bond bubble which is about to blow; nor is it the country’s non-performing loans, which may be as high $4 trillion.

According to ordinary Chinese workers, i.e., those who know best, what the local government is most fearful of is precisely what we said three months ago is the “biggest and most under reported risk facing China.” From Reuters:

At a printing factory in the western city of Chongqing, a Reuters reporter was present when a local official visited last week to make sure the boss paid his workers before the Year of the Monkey begins.

The official declined to speak with Reuters, although the boss later said it was an attempt to prevent unrest.

That’s what the government is most fearful of,” said the factory owner, who did not want to be named.

Indeed it is, and all those economic and financial factors, while ultimately leading to social unrest, are secondary: what Beijing is most terrified about is an accelerating to the recent surge in worker anger and increasing incidents of violence.

According to Reuters laborer Fan Fu and 20 or so colleagues working on the Zixia Garden apartment complex in Hebei province have not joined China’s legion of migrant workers returning home to celebrate new year with their families.

Instead, they have camped in the offices of the property developer’s subcontractor, demanding almost a year’s unpaid wages and too angry and proud to go back to native towns and villages empty-handed.

As we warned in November, “with China’s economy growing at its slowest in 25 years, more workers face Fan’s predicament and labor unrest is on the rise, a concern for Beijing as it seeks to avoid social

A Wounded Deutsche Bank Lashes Out At Central Bankers: Stop Easing, You Are Crushing Us

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

Ten days ago, when Deutsche Bank stock was about 10% higher, the biggest German commercial bank declared war on Mario Draghi, as we put it, warning him that any further easing by the ECB would only push stocks (with an emphasis on DB stock which has gotten pummeled over the past few months) lower. What it got, instead, was a slap in the face in the form of a major new easing program when the Bank of Japan announced it is unveiling negative rates just three days later.

Which is why overnight a badly wounded Deutsche Bank has expanded its war against the ECB to include the BOJ as well, and in a note titled “The Risks From Further ECB and BOJ Easing” it wants that with the Zero Lower Bound already breached in nearly a third of global markets, the benefits to risk assets from further easing no longer exist, and in fact it says that while central banks have hoped that such measures would “push investors out the risk spectrum” the “impact has been exactly the opposite.”

In other words, we have reached that fork in the road within the monetary twilight zone, where Europe’s largest bank is openly defying central bank policy and demanding an end to easy money. Alas, since tighter monetary policy assures just as much if not more pain, one can’t help but wonder just how the central banks get themselves out of this particular trap they set up for themselves.

Here is DB’s Parag Thatte explaining the “The risks from further ECB and BOJ easing”

The BOJ surprised with a move to negative rates last week, while ECB rhetoric suggests additional easing measures forthcoming in March. While a fundamental tenet of these measures, in particular negative rates, has been to push investors out the risk spectrum, we remind that arguably the impact has been exactly the opposite:

  • Declining bond yields have been robustly associated with larger inflows into bonds at the expense of equities. Though a large over allocation to fixed income at the expense of equities already exists as a result of past Fed QEs and a lack of normalization of rates, further easing by the ECB and BOJ that lower bond yields globally will only exacerbate the over allocation to bonds;
  • Asynchronous easing

North Korea Launches Long-Range Rocket

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

After “preparing” for over a week, moments ago at 00:31 UTC time, North Korea – which has failed to shock the world with some “news” for over a month when it tested a “hydrogen” bomb which according to experts was anything but – launched a long-range rocket which some say is being used as a cover for banned missile test. North Korea has called the launch an attempt to “peacefully launch a satellite.” Japan, however, is not happy as according to initial reports, it flew over its airspace in proximity to Okinawa.

The missile appears to have promptly fallen apart shortly after launch with NHK reporting that three “fallen objects” from missile fell in ocean; 1st object fell in Yellow Sea at 9:37 a.m.; 2nd at 9:39 a.m.; 3rd at 9:45 a.m.: broadcaster NHK

While few care where the NK rocket will end up, most likely deep in the Pacific Ocean (unless it misses it), a more relevant question is whether Japan will retaliate. As a reminder, about a week ago, Japan’s Self Defense Forces deployed a Patriot missile launcher in downtown Tokyo over the weekend, as North Korea geared up for a missile launch.…

The “Minimum Wage” Surged In 6 Cities Last Year; Then This Happened

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

Submitted by Jed Graham via Investors.com,

Hiring at restaurants, hotels and other leisure and hospitality sector venues slowed markedly last year in metro areas that saw big minimum-wage hikes, new Labor Department data show.

Wherever cities implemented big minimum-wage hikes to $10 an hour or more last year, the latest data through December show that job creation downshifted to the slowest pace in at least five years.

Liberals fighting for a dramatic increase in the minimum wage have insisted that there would be a negligible impact on job creation. Though the data are preliminary and overly broad, Washington D.C., Oakland, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Chicago seem to be finding out that the reality isn’t so benign.

A slowdown in job growth can fly below the radar, at least for those who aren’t seeking low-wage work. But the risk of raising the minimum wage too high became fairly obvious last month, when Wal-Mart (WMT) bolted from Oakland and Los Angeles and scrapped plans for two stores in low-income areas of D.C.

The big shortcoming in the available data for 5 of the 6 cities is that they cover broad metro areas, far beyond the city limits where wage hikes took effect. Still, the uniform result of much slower job growth in the low-wage leisure and hospitality sector, even as the pace of job gains held steady in surrounding areas, sends a pretty powerful signal.

D.C.’s Great Stagnation

The data from D.C. are the most reliable because they are confined to the city limits. The latest data show that job gains ground to a halt in the nation’s capital in 2015, with average monthly leisure and hospitality sector employment in the fourth quarter virtually unchanged from a year earlier. That was a sharp drop from the 3% annual job gains in 2014, meaning restaurants, hotels and other employers went from adding 2,000 jobs to adding zero. That’s no small thing in a city with a 6.6% jobless rate.

The timing coincides with the $1 minimum-wage hike to $10.50 an hour last July. That jump followed a boost from $8.25 to $9.50 an hour that took effect in mid-2014. Another jump to $11.50 is set for this July.

Chicago Hiring Halved

The Chicago area saw its weakest year of leisure-and-hospitality sector job growth since 2009. The Windy City’s $1.75-an-hour minimum-wage hike…

Ukraine Bonds Crash After Economy Minister Resigns Over “High-Level Corruption”

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

While the rest of the world's bond yields are collapsing and prices soaring (as NIRP sweeps the globe), Ukraine's 'young' implicitly-US-taxpayer-backed bonds have plunged to record lows. The reason – aside from simply disturbing economics…

…is, as The FT reports, the dramatic resignation of the economy minister accusing a senior presidential ally of blocking his attempts to root out graft and stymieing his plans for reform. Abromavicius exclaimed, of the Washington-installed elite at Kiev's heart, "I realised there is an intention to unwind the process of making all of this transparent."

Speaking in Kiev, Aivaras Abromavicius said he had no desire “to serve as a cover-up for covert corruption, or become puppets for those who, very much like the old government, are trying to exercise control over the flow of public funds”.

Ukraine already ranked dismal last among European nations for Corruption (rubbing off from its Washington overlords?)

As The FT details, Mr Abromavicius also made an acid reference to his presentation on behalf of Ukraine at the annual gathering of economic and business luminaries at the world economic forum in Switzerland, saying:

“I am not willing to travel to Davos and talk about our successes to international investors and partners, all the while knowing that certain individuals are scheming to pursue their own interests behind my back.”

Mr Abromavicius is the highest-profile departure so far from Ukraine’s governing coalition, which is struggling to deliver on the promise of the pro-European Maidan revolution that brought it to power two years ago.

As the government has floundered, many Ukrainians have come to fear a repeat of the Orange revolution a decade earlier, when infighting and corruption dashed similar hopes.

Widespread anger at entrenched corruption and the slow pace of reform is sparking calls for early elections — yet the results could jeopardise attempts to implement reforms agreed under the country’s $40bn rescue package, led by the International Monetary Fund.

The upheaval is also threatening the peace process in eastern Ukraine, which also requires Petro Poroshenko, the president, to push unpopular measures through a hostile parliament.

Mr Abromavicius told the Financial Times he decided to resign after his attempts to restructure Ukraine’s state-owned companies ran into resistance from powerful figures with vested interests.

“We just hit a wall recently,” Mr Abromavicius said. “We

How Did The World Get This Way?

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

Submitted by Jeffrey Snider via Alhambra Investment Partners,

How did the world get this way? I don’t mean the oncoming recession, if that is indeed, as it appears, the economy’s fate. How did the payroll statistics ever attain this kind of deference and even religious zeal?

U.S. manufacturing is shrinking, corporate profits are declining and goods are piling up on warehouse shelves. Those trends have elevated concern that a U.S. recession may loom in the next year or two.

Yet in the one area that matters most, the economy has continued to shine: Hiring.

Those two paragraphs are at extreme odds with each other, so much so that they are mutually exclusive. It cannot be both. Forced to choose, the media and economists pick the latter every time no matter how much of the former forces its way into the analysis (and not voluntarily). It makes no sense for today but perhaps more meaningfully it hasn’t meant anything this whole time. Hiring has supposedly been robust all throughout the past two years and still “manufacturing is shrinking, corporate profits are declining and goods are piling up on warehouse shelves.” There can be but unbreakable ideology to the blindness.

That is visited on the other side of this equation, too. By that I mean the financial and what is ailing the global version of related US malaise. Here, too, convention and orthodoxy prevents full recognition in favor of debt, debt and more debt – the very death trap of monetarism.

Beneath the surface of the global financial system lurks a multitrillion-dollar problem that could sap the strength of large economies for years to come.

The problem is the giant, stagnant pool of loans that companies and people around the world are struggling to pay back. Bad debts have been a drag on economic activity ever since the financial crisis of 2008, but in recent months, the threat posed by an overhang of bad loans appears to be rising. China is the biggest source of worry. Some analysts estimate that China’s troubled credit could exceed $5 trillion, a staggering number that is equivalent to half the size of the country’s annual economic output.

This analysis continues without ever asking how all that happened to begin with; where did

2016 Theme #3: The Rise Of Independent (Non-State) Crypto-Currencies

Courtesy of Charles Hugh-Smith at Of Two Minds

A number of systemic, structural forces are intersecting in 2016. One is the rise of non-state, non-central-bank-issued crypto-currencies.

We all know money is created and distributed by governments and central banks. The reason is simple: control the money and you control everything.

The invention of the blockchain and crypto-currencies such as Bitcoin have opened the door to non-state, non-central-bank currencies--money that is global and independent of any state or central bank, or indeed, any bank, as crypto-currencies are structurally peer-to-peer, meaning they don't require a bank to function: people can exchange crypto-currencies to pay for goods and services without a bank acting as a clearinghouse for all these transactions.

Back in December, I wrote a post on my blog where I compared the performances of various ETFs related to the oil industry. I was looking for the best possible proxy to match the moves of oil prices if you didn't want to play with futures. At the time, I concluded that for medium term trades, USO and the leveraged ETFs UCO and SCO were the most promising. Longer term, broader ETFs like OIH and XLE might make better investment if oil prices do recover to more profitable prices since ETF linked to futures like USO, UCO and SCO do suffer from decay. It also seemed that DIG and DUG could be promising if OIH could recover as it should with the price of oil, but that they don't make a good proxy for the price of oil itself.
