Bank of England Panic! Scottish Independence Bank Run Already Underway! / Politics / UK Banking

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst most of the people of the UK are focused on the increasing frenzy of the too and fro politicking going on in Scotland in the build up to September 18th referendum, unbeknown to most including the mainstream media is that there is already a bank run underway not only in terms of flight of capital from Scottish banks but that is hitting the whole of the UK hard in terms of capital outflows.

Understand this - It does not matter what the Bank of England states following a YES vote on September 18th - There will be a run on Scottish Banks by panicking depositors just as there was on Northern Rock.

Obama Declares War on Syria, Why the Real Target is Assad Not ISIS / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Invoking the same ominous language as his predecessor, Barack Obama used a prime time presidential address on Wednesday to announce the beginning of a war on Syria. And while there’s no doubt that many Americans will be confused by Obama’s misleading focus on the terrorist organization named ISIL, the real purpose of the speech was to garner support for another decade of homicidal conflicts in the Middle East. The administration is as determined as ever to plunge the region into chaos, erase existing borders, and install its puppets wherever it can. ISIL–which is mainly an invention of western Intel agencies and their treacherous counterparts in the Gulf– conveniently creates the justification for another bloody invasion followed by years of occupation, subjugation, and revolt.

Why Is Scotland's Referendum Already A Black Swan? Cataclysmic Uncertainty / Politics / UK Politics

By: DK_Matai

1. The pound sterling is falling. It has already fallen by 6% over the past two months. Sterling may yet fall further next week in the absence of official intervention. Investors pulled out around GBP 17 billion from the British economy last month as fears that Scotland could go independent began to hit the prospects of the whole United Kingdom. More money flowed out of British assets in August than at any time since the height of the financial crisis during the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008. Over the course of this year, more than GBP 120 billion has been pulled out of British financial assets, compared to a net gain of around GBP 40 billion in 2013.

Independent Scotland Will Disintegrate as Unionist Regions Demand Referendum's to Rejoin UK / Politics / Scotland

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Increasingly the big on rhetoric scottish nationalists inhabit a fantasy land of a case of business as usual on the day after a YES vote victory when instead September the 19h will mark the first day of the North of the Island of Britain being hit be waves of ever escalating disastrous events that will start with announcements of dis-investment from Scotland by businesses and individuals and soon followed by an exodus of higher tax paying professional workers that as Deutsche Bank warns would at a minimum plunge Scotland into an prolonged 1930's style economic depression.

SNP Fanatics Warn of Day of Reckoning for Scottish Independence No Campaigners / Politics / Scotland

By: Nadeem_Walayat

A dark national socialist cloud is descending over Scotland as increasingly NO voters are becoming too scared to voice their opinion in the wake of the rising ferocity of YES campaigners who hurl abuse at NO voters that are being labeled as traitors, as the Scottish Nationalist Party more and more resembles the British Nationalist Party in rhetoric and bully boy tactics.

The mainstream press is becoming full of reports of outbreaks of vandalism, abuse and even assault on NO campaigners and voters, which culminates in today's warning by the former deputy leader of the Scottish National Socialists that there will be a DAY OF RECKONING for NO Campaigners following a YES victory with dark conations that one can only wonder at what this DAY of RECKONING would result in.

Scottish Independence Would Shake Up the Global System / Politics / Scotland

By: John_Mauldin

The United States is just starting to think about the upcoming elections (for whatever reason, the vast majority of people don’t focus on politics until after Labor Day), but there is another election happening “over the pond,” where the polls have just made everybody do a double-take. I am of course referring to the referendum on Scottish independence, which will be held next week. Voters opposing the measure were a clear majority for months, but their numbers began slipping a few weeks ago; and as of last few days the contest is basically even, with the election probably to be decided by the undecided.

Main Reason Why Scotland Will Vote NO to Independence, 70% Probability / Politics / Scotland

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The opinion polls paint a picture of a too close to call Scottish Independence vote on September 18th which even saw a 51% to 49% lead for the YES campaign just a few days ago that triggered much panic across the political spectrum and financial markets.

However, as I concluded in my recent in depth analysis that the actual probability for Scotland voting YES is just 30% rather than the near 50/50 proposition that the mainstream press has itself in a frenzy over:

U.S. Meddling Dims Prospects for Ukraine Peace / Politics / Ukraine Civil War

By: Mike_Whitney

The Minsk Ceasefire Protocol has very little chance of succeeding. In fact, the meeting between the warring parties was not convened to stop the violence as much as it was to buy time for the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) to retreat and regroup. In the last two weeks, the junta’s army has suffered “catastrophic” losses leaving President Petro Poroshenko with the choice of either calling for a truce or facing the unpleasant prospect of complete annihilation. Poroshenko wisely chose to withdraw under cover of the ceasefire agreement. But let’s not kid ourselves, Poroshenko only accepted that humiliation because he had no other choice. Once he gathers his forces and rearms, he’ll be back with a vengeance.

Is Scotland Big Enough To Go it Alone? / Politics / Scotland

By: MISES

Peter St. Onge writes: Back when Quebec was weighing secession from Canada, I was a lowly American undergrad living in Montreal. It was an exciting time, since in America we have our railroads torn up and population starved when we secede. Now that Scotland is going through the motions, I figured I’d stir the pot, economically.

Is the Fed Preparing to Asset-Strip Local Governments? / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Ellen_Brown

In an inscrutable move that has alarmed state treasurers, the Federal Reserve, along with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, just changed the liquidity requirements for the nation’s largest banks. Municipal bonds, long considered safe liquid investments, have been eliminated from the list of high-quality liquid collateral assets (HQLA). That means banks that are the largest holders of munis are liable to start dumping them in favor of the Treasuries and corporate bonds that do satisfy the requirement.

Scotland - A Wee Problem for the UK / Politics / UK Politics

By: John_Browne

Last weekend several polls emerged that shockingly forecast Scottish independence from Great Britain is within the realm of political possibilities. Although the September 18th vote had worried a number of people, the evenly split polling results burst upon the world like a thunderbolt, perhaps shattering the image of a steady, genial and conservative Britain. But the ramifications of Scottish independence go far beyond national pride and historical score settling. Watchers of the global economy should be aware of the potentially serious follow-on results.

Radical Islam's Crisis of Competing Caliphates / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: STRATFOR

The rise of the Islamic State will inspire other jihadist groups to claim their own caliphates and emirates. In the long run, the extremism of these contrived dominions and the competition among them will undermine the jihadist movement. However, before that happens, the world will witness much upheaval.

As More U.S. Bombs Drop, Empire Begins Fall / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

On Wednesday evening, September 10, 2014, hours before the thirteenth anniversary of 9/11, President Obama announced his decision to bomb Syria and deploy more troops inside Iraq. While the February events in Kiev could be seen marking the EU's capitulation to neo-fascism in Europe in submission to Washington's hegemonic diktats, Obama's arrogant militancy as presently expressed should be viewed as the beginning of the fall of American Empire. Whether it falls this year, the next, or in three to five years, it will end through military defeat, economic collapse and by forces from within that will - by necessity - fight for self-survival against their own government and their sectarian political oppressors and opponents.  America will then inherit the mantle that Germany endured for over fifty years following World War II. At that, the rotating sphere of world dominance will have completed its cycle. Unipolar will be dead. The sun will have set in the West and risen in the East. Many will die fighting against the inevitable. Many will blame everyone but themselves.
