Prime Minister Theresa May cleared the final hurdle to triggering Article 50 beginning Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU) Monday. But she did so amid the crisis generated by Scottish National Party (SNP) leader Nicola Sturgeon demanding a second referendum on Scotland’s independence from the UK.

North Korea on Thursday condemned South Korea and the United States for “escalating nuclear attack threats,” citing the participation of U.S. strategic bombers and the nuclear-powered USS Carl Vinson in joint military drills in South Korea.
North Korea’s official news agency, KCNA, said a fleet of B-1B Lancer bombers from the Andersen air base on Guam made a stealth flight over the Sangdong firing range of South Korea on Monday for about an hour on a nuclear bomb-dropping drill aimed at making preemptive strikes at major targets of the DPRK. DPRK is an acronym for Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, the North’s official name.
The defense ministry didn’t confirm the deployment of the U.S. strategic assets to the region, where tensions have increased in recent weeks with North Korea’s missile launches and the killing of Kim Jong-un’s half-brother in Malaysia.

“Spin axis appears to be 6 degrees off vertical”
(INTELLIHUB) — In early-2016, astronomers first suggested the existence “Planet 9,” which is a hypothetical planet, a “rogue world,” that’s roughly ten times the size of earth that may also be responsible for tilting our solar system up to 6 degrees.
Astronomers think that at one time in the distant past Planet 9 may have collided with another planet or object, possibly forming the asteroid belt, before sending the world into an oblong orbit.
But more importantly, new data collected by astronomers actually dovetails with the famous, late, Zecharia Sitchin’s research of what he called the “Tenth Planet” or “Planet X.”
And remember, in August of 2006 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) downgraded Pluto’s status from a planet to a “dwarf planet.” This maneuver may have been done in an effort to start a new online search term throughout the general public for “Planet 9” rather than “Planet X” which already has a plethora of search results and information archived.
If true, the data fed to the general public regarding Planet 9 may be a ruse and people may want to look more into Planet X.

After December’s brief dead cat bounce, in which foreign central banks bought $18.6 billion in US Treasuries, breaking a streak of 12 consecutive months of selling, in January they resumed their liquidation. According to the just released TIC data, foreign official institutions, which includes mostly central banks, but also sovereign wealth funds and various other official entities, sold another $44.9 billion in Treasuries, in line with the aggressive selling seen for most of 2016.

Today’s FOMC press conference was the standard affair. Reporters ask broad questions, Yellen responds with even broader comments that amble aimlessly leaving no one any wiser as to The Fed’s true intent. That is, until Bloomberg TV’s Kathleen Hays decided enough was enough, and wanted to get to the bottom of just why a “data-dependent” Fed is hiking in a world in which economic data is rapidly deteriorating.
