    Li Xueren/Xinhua via APAs more and more information comes to light about Hunter Biden, so do many of the questionable business dealings in which Hunter had engaged. While Burisma has made headlines for the last several years, recently much more has been revealed about Hunter’s engagement in Chinese business dealings – and they’re infinitely more troubling than anything having to do with Ukraine or Burisma. Prior to his tagging along on the Big Guy’s trip to China in December 2013, Hunter Biden and his associates Devon Archer, James Bulger, and Michael Lin had held numerous meetings with executives from Bohai...

    Cracks that were already beginning to show are now becoming even more apparent as strained global relations and COVID-19 restrictions appear to have citizens wary of the nations economy.

The most recent trouble came Aug. 3, as citizens made a run on the Bank of Huludao in Liaoning Province, China, according to The Epoch Times. Customers packed the lobby one day after news broke that former bank president Wang Xueling was being investigated for allegedly violating Chinese Communist Party law....

  • Deutsche Bank to pay $150M penalty for transactions with Jeffrey Epstein, 2 foreign banks

    July 7 (UPI) -- New York regulators announced Tuesday a $150 million penalty on Deutsche Bank tied to suspicious transactions involving Jeffrey Epstein and two foreign banks, Danske Estonia and FBME Bank. Deutsche Bank has agreed to pay $150 million as a result of "significant compliance failures," Linda Lacewell, superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services, said in a statement. These failures were related to its banking relationships with Epstein and the two foreign banks. The statement said the settlement marks the first enforcement action by a regulator against a financial institution for dealings with registered sex...
  • Deutsche Bank Reports Loss of 43 Million ($46,627,882 dollars) in Q1 2020

    Deutsche Bank has published its financial report for the first quarter of 2020, revealing that the German lender has posted a bottom-line loss of 43 million attributable to shareholders during the three month period. Although the German bank posted a loss of 43 million, it is worth noting that it is still better than analysts had initially expected, with the figure reflecting higher revenues on the back of increased trading, which has been driven by COVID-19 related volatility. For the three month period, Deutsche Bank confirmed that it had achieved a Group profit before tax (PBT) of 206 million after...

    Politico essentially retracted the entirety of an article published last week reporting that President Donald Trump owed tens of millions to the Bank of China from a real estate deal brokered with the Trump Organization in 2012. Politico reported the borrowed funds were scheduled to be paid back by 2022 in the piece headlined, Trump owes tens of millions to the Bank of China and the loan is due soon. Trumps tens of millons in debt held by the bank however, is non-existent, and was sold off by the China-owned financial institution shortly after the deal. Even worse, Politico...

    Millions of dollars that were sent from the estate of disgraced billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein into a bank he owned - but appeared to never have operated as a business - has raised questions from a judge overseeing a court case over his remaining assets. In a hearing yesterday in the Virgin Islands over the disgraced financier's remaining assets, Judge Carolyn Hermon-Purcell told lawyers representing his estate she wasn't satisfied with their account of large sums being sent to a bank first set up by the pedophile in 2014. The judge has been tasked with assessing Epstein's assets and possibly...

    Google will offer checking accounts next year as it partners with financial institutions including Citigroup, representing Big Techs boldest move yet into consumer banking. Most previous efforts have focused on credit cards and payment platforms. As part of a project code-named Cache, the company will become the latest Silicon Valley leader to try its hand at the banking space, the Wall Street Journal reported. Previous attempts by Apple and Facebook faced obstacles, with consumers growing increasingly skeptical over providing large technology companies with their personal information.

    The biggest bank in Europe is in the process of imploding, and there are persistent rumors that the final collapse could happen sooner rather than later. Those that follow my work on a regular basis already know that this is a story that I have been following for years. Deutsche Bank is rapidly bleeding cash, they have been laying off thousands of workers, and the vultures have been circling as company executives desperately try to implement a turnaround plan. Unfortunately for Deutsche Bank, it may already be too late. And if Deutsche Bank goes down, it will be even more...

    Chinas major commercial banks have a funding issue outside Beijings control: Theyre running low on the U.S. dollars they need for activities both at home and abroad. The combined dollar liabilities at the big four commercial banks exceeded their dollar assets at the end of 2018, their annual results showa sharp reversal from just a few years ago. Back in 2013, the four together had around $125 billion more dollar assets than liabilities, but now they owe more dollars to creditors and customers than are owed to them. Bank of China is by far the greatest contributor to the shift....

With its announcement this morning, the New York Fed confirmed that the Feds Plan A of manipulating the federal funds rate into its target range now between 1.75% and 2.0% has miserably failed, and that it will switch to Plan B to control short-term interest rates. But this Plan B used to...
