Keiser Report: Bankers Lives Matter

From RT

Published on Jul 23, 2015

In this Keiser Report Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the fact that life’s but a walking shadow, a poor homeless schmuck that struts and frets his squeegee upon thy windshield, and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot tabloid, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. In the second half Max interviews Michael Krieger of LibertyBlitzkrieg.com about #BankersLivesMatter and the two-tier justice system in America in relation to bankers and their crimes. They also ask, “where is Eric Holder now? Hmmm, I wonder.”

Counting the Cost - Gold, Oil and Copper: Is the Commodity Boom Over?

From Al Jazeera English

Published on Aug 1, 2015
China's stock market crash was big news. But lost in the headlines was the commodities rout. Everything from copper to oil, cotton to sugar has been hit. And unlike stock markets, commodities have an impact on everyday lives. From farmers to miners to consumers to governments, lower prices mean less money and fewer jobs. Gold is often seen as a store of wealth in uncertain times. But right now, gold has tumbled below $1,100 an ounce to a five-year low.

Weekend Chillout - The Frances Madden Band


I had a wonderful night out last night seeing the the amazing Frances Madden Band perform at the iconic Sydney jazz venue Foundry616. The venue was sold out and packed with enthusiastic fans of Frances and her band of talented characters. I feel so fortunate to count Frances Madden and Borbála Bodonyi as good friends. Also thanks to the Sydney follower of this blog who came over and thanked me for introducing the band to him and his wife. For those who wish to see the full band perform live they are touring Melbourne in September and have a gig at The Basement in Sydney in October. Full concert details here
