Europe’s Refugees Are A Global Crisis / Politics / Refugee Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

At the moment I start writing this, leaders of European nations are in a meeting in which they talk about refugees that, though it was announced over a week ago, was nevertheless labeled an ’emergency’ meeting. The only thing that truly tells you is that Europe still refuses to see the refugee situation as an emergency. And that’s not just semantics.

Of course there’ll be all sorts of bickering about the difference between migrants and refugees, and tons of words about how “we” should separate the two, and send people back, and strengthen European borders, and fight the human smugglers. None of which addresses reality, or at least at best a tiny sliver of it.

Poland, Czech, Slovakia and Hungary Refugee Hypocrisy After Flooding UK with 4 Million Economic Migrants / Politics / Refugee Crisis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The euro-crats obsession with the eastwood expansion of the European Union, one of incorporating former dictatorships stuck in centuries old mind sets is once more being revealed to have been another catastrophic error, one that potentially sows the seeds for the destruction of the European Union. Today, in an attempt at dealing with the refugee crisis facing Europe by means of a drop in the ocean quota of 120,000 refugees to be distributed among EU member states, a quota that is barely 10% of the 1.1 million migrants expected to enter the EU this year. However once more the hypocrisy of the Eastern European states has been exposed as they virulently rebel against any attempts to settle any refugees in their lands, despite the fact that these very same nations have sent several millions of refugees westwards ever since the cold war began and more recently over the past decade flooded western europe with well over 10 million economic migrants, 4 million of whom have settled into the embrace of Britain's welfare state, resulting a huge crisis in social services, schooling and not least Britain's housing catastrophe.

Defending National Sovereignty from the NWO / Politics / New World Order

By: BATR

In a world that is virtually unrecognizable from the universal principles that underpinned Western Civilization, the fundamental concept of national sovereignty is being attacked as a relic of a former age. The New World Order is designed to eliminate the self-government of sovereign nations. While individuals live under the domain of established states, the fact that specific regimes operate within and often under the auspices of international hegemony that routinely violates the independence of specific countries is undeniable. The “world community” is not a voluntary association of collaborating governments; it is a euphemism of a top down despotic authoritarian system for global control and punishment for uncooperative governments.

Refugee Crisis - Merkel Opens the Flood Gates / Politics / Refugee Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

“The European Project has very little economic and political capital left to defend it if anything goes wrong now. As Mr Juncker says, the bell tolls.”
– Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

Perhaps I should issue a storm warning for this letter. Maybe it’s because I had major gum surgery on my entire lower jaw this week and am in a bit of discomfort, but as I read the news coming through my inbox, it’s not helping my mood. This week’s letter will focus on the immigration crisis in Europe – after I muse on what I think is the very disturbing aftermath of this week’s Federal Reserve meeting.

Blame America? No, Blame Neocons! / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Is the current refugee crisis gripping the European Union "all America's fault"? That is how my critique of US foreign policy was characterized in a recent interview on the Fox Business Channel. I do not blame the host for making this claim, but I think it is important to clarify the point.

Pentagon Updating War Plans Against Russia / Politics / US Military

By: Stephen_Lendman

Longstanding US policy calls for regime change in all sovereign independent countries - by color revolutions or wars, notably targeting Russia, China, Iran and Venezuela, to eliminate major rivals and control world resources, especially oil.

The Pentagon maintains war plans against all targeted countries, updating them as needed, ready to act if ordered - risking potential global war.

Europe Refugee Crisis, UK to Repatriate 120,000 Hungarian Economic Migrants Back to Hungary / Politics / European Union

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Now if true such a policy would send political earthquakes throughout Europe if David Cameron had started to pull the plug on Eastern European mass economic migration that still continues. But of course its just not going to happen because the UK is a far more civilised nation than the likes of Hungary and its other eastern european brethren that have been showing their anti-european fascist credentials that would be home in Czar Putin's Russian empire than that which the European Union purports to be and what the people of Britain have been led to believe it be.

Financial Sanctions Against Hungary, Poland, Czech, Slovakia Syrian Refugee Migrants Hypocrisy / Politics / Refugee Crisis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It speaks volumes that those eastern european nations of Poland, Hungary, Czech and Slovakia amongst others that have over the past decade alone sent over 10 million ECONOMIC MIGRANTS westwards, demanding full equality in every respect, and receiving it despite putting nations such as the UK under immense pressure in terms of social services and housing as a consequence of an influx of 4 million Polish, Hungarian etc. economic migrants are now themselves not even wishing to entertain more than a handful of syrian refugees to seek refuge in their sparsely populated heavily depopulated regions.

In Thrall to the Federal Reserve / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: MISES

Jeff Deist writes: BREAKING NEWS:

Perhaps no economic pronouncement in history has been anticipated, discussed, predicted, dissected, and reported like the Federal Reserve’s momentous decision today not to raise interest rates.

The outpouring of relief witnessed today by the financial press is nothing short of cathartic. Fear and anxiety, built up over months, is replaced by relief, even euphoria.

Economic Consequences of the Syrian Refugee Invasion / Politics / Immigration

By: BATR

The dual peril of unfettered migration into Europe and the United States has a different complexion of invaders, but both suffer an appalling economic aftermath. However, the flood gates from the Middle East and Africa “so called” refugees are destined to overcome and hasten the breakup of the European Union. Just note the impact from not defending the borders of Europe, both placing terminal pressure on the economies and finances of EU countries, but also from the social dissolution of Western societies.

Governments Give Migrants a Disastrous Mix of Social Welfare and Bureaucracy / Politics / Immigration

By: MISES

Justin Murray writes: On August 27, 2015, seventy-one refugees were discovered suffocated in an abandoned, locked transport truck in Austria just across the border with Hungary. These individuals, reported as refugees fleeing from the civil war in Syria, made a trek of over 1,000 miles. This is just a long string in the growing refugee and migration crisis hitting Europe over the past few years, with 2,500 estimated deaths from capsizing ships in the Mediterranean alone, of the nearly half million people crossing into Europe over the course of 2014–2015.

Gathering Storm Clouds - Fourth Turning Crisis Of Trust – Part 2 / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

In Part 1 of this article I discussed the catalyst spark which ignited this Fourth Turning and the seemingly delayed regeneracy. In Part 2 I will ponder possible Grey Champion prophet generation leaders who could arise during the regeneracy.

The nearly seven year reign of Barack Obama has resulted in furthering wealth inequality, in spite of his socialistic rhetoric. Notwithstanding his Nobel Peace Prize, military spending is at all-time highs and we are engaged in actual and proxy wars across the Middle East and in the Ukraine. Race relations have never been worse. Poverty levels have never been worse. Real median household income is lower than it was in 1989. Real hourly wages are at 50 year lows.

Congress Fiddles Whilst the U.S. Economy Burns / Politics / US Economy

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Reports that the official unemployment rate has fallen to 5.1 percent may appear to vindicate the policies of easy money, corporate bailouts, and increased government spending. However, even the mainstream media has acknowledged that the official numbers understate the true unemployment rate. This is because the government's unemployment figures do not include the 94 million Americans who have given up looking for work or who have settled for part-time employment. John Williams of Shadow Government Statistics estimates the real unemployment rate is between 23 and 24 percent.

9/11 Memory: Fascism & Gold / Politics / US Politics

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The ultimate patriotic act is to invest the life savings in Gold & Silver, which does honor to real money, shows disdain for paper merchants who rule the central banks, and forces nations to put forth honest sound money in usage. It is important to recall the 9/11 event, however based in reality, not the official story. Honor should be given to the 2500 victims of the mass murder event. The official story makes far less sense than the Kennedy assassination, while the two events appear to be front and back bookends of the same Fascist takeover of the United States Govt. The Patriot Act was a fascist manifesto, much like the Enabling Act installed in Germany over seven decades ago. The two acts have a 90% correlation and overlap, yet the American public remains largely in the dark on the similarity in template.

The Disappearing Middle Class / Politics / Social Issues

By: DailyWealth

More proof that the "disappearing middle class" trend in America is alive and well: rent-to-own furniture and appliances chain Aaron's (AAN) just struck an all-time high.
 
Regular readers are familiar with Porter's thoughts on the decline of the middle class in the U.S. In short, low interest rates and the Fed's loose-money policies have allowed the wealthy to borrow money and buy stocks, real estate, and other hard assets. But rising prices squeeze the lower-income wage earners, who have to pay more for everything from groceries to washing machines while their wages stagnate or fall.

Ryan W.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande immediately scheduled a bilateral meeting.

“Tsipras and his government are leading the Greek people on a path of bitter abandonment and hopelessness,” Germany’s Economy Minister Sigmar Gabriel told the Tagesspiegel daily. He said negotiations with Athens now were “barely conceivable.”

Bush proposes to reduce tax rates, which is a good thing. But he just doesn't go far enough.

Rather than a bold program to radically reshape the unproductive U.S. tax code, Bush does not go far enough to rewrite the DNA of the U.S. economy.
