Oh my! Is the data ever flowing right now!  What a sight to behold!

Obama made this startling statement:

"We are going to have to rebuild within this wild-wild-west-of-information flow some sort of curating function that people agree to," Obama said at an innovation conference in Pittsburgh.

"There has to be, I think, some sort of way in which we can sort through information that passes some basic truthiness tests and those that we have to discard, because they just don't have any basis in anything that's actually happening in the world," Obama added.


The better financial blogs are releasing a great deal of information, here's just a sampling.

Internal Anger At The FBI Over Clinton Investigation Continues To Grow

After graduating from law school, Comey became a law clerk to a U.S. District Judge in Manhattan and later became an associate in a law firm in the city. After becoming a U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, Comey’s career moved through the U.S. Attorney’s Office until he became Deputy Attorney General during the George W. Bush administration.

After Bush left office, Comey entered the private sector and became general counsel and Senior Vice President for Lockheed Martin, among other private sector posts. President Barack Obama appointed him to FBI director in 2013 replacing out going-director Robert Mueller.

“Comey was never an investigator or special agent. The special agents are trained investigators and they are insulted that Comey included them in ‘collective we’ statements in his testimony to imply that the SAs agreed that there was nothing there to prosecute,” the second agent said. “All the trained investigators agree that there is a lot to prosecuted but he stood in the way.”

In one of the bigger stories to hit yesterday, Russian media outlet, RT, which is funded by the government reported that NatWest, a division of the nationalized RBS, had blocked access to RT's bank account, provoking a confused and in some cases angry response that the UK government was trying to stifle free speech. To be sure, NatWest rejected any suggestion of political pressure, releasing the following statement:  “We have recently undertaken a review of your banking arrangements with us and reached the conclusion that we will no longer provide these facilities."

"Change Is As Necessary As It Is Impossible": Deutsche Bank Explains Why The World Is At A Dead End

The following brief essay, from Deutsche Bank credit derivatives expert Aleksandar Kocic of all people, provides one of the best summaries why the current politics system is fracturing with every passing day. As Kocic puts it, the most likely origin of the anti-global sentiment expressed in the past year, in the UK with Brexit and in the US with Donald Trump, is the result of a "buildup of discontent due to failure to develop a convincing response to economic slowdown in the last years." According to the DB strategist, having been repeatedly ignored for years as central banks took the reins in hopes of fixing the global economy, only to leave a world that is vastly better for the 1% and starkly worse for everyone else, "this has recently emerged as the main theme of public discourse."
