Will It Be Armageddon Or Laudao Si'? The Next Paradigm Waits On Thee / Politics / Religion

By: Michael_T_Bucci

As the world moves closer to a biblical Armageddon with US-EU-NATO forces inching toward the last war on planet earth staged amongst enemies from the Old World Order, I hear "the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor". I hear the channeled spirit of Francis of Assisi: Laudato Si'!!!

 

It is no surprise that some in Congress and many reactionary conservatives in America are unnerved by Pope Francis' eco-encyclical issued June18, especially those who promote and promulgate the very policies that Francis has blamed in his landmark encyclical. Without reference to persons, and while not singling out the capitalist system, he has indicted unbridled market forces that have overtaken common sense, ethics, morality and the common good of all humankind.

The Police State and Property Taxes… What You Can Do About It / Politics / Taxes

By: Casey_Research

By Nick Giambruno

A police officer pulled over Floyd Dent for a routine traffic stop.

A violent altercation followed.

The officer dragged Dent out of his car, appeared to put him in a chokehold, and punched him in the head. He then used his stun gun.

Greek Parliamentary Debt Committee Declares All Debt Illegal / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

For a while now, I’ve had a German saying floating around my files, that I didn’t really know what to do with. I know now. The saying is:

In der Not ist der Mittelweg der Tod.

Which loosely translates as:

In emergencies, the middle ground is lethal.

A Net Assessment of East Asia / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

George Friedman writes: When I began this series a month ago, I pointed out that the most significant feature of the global system currently is the ongoing destabilization of the Eurasian land mass, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Arctic to the Arabian Sea. One important aspect of this is that the destabilization isn't, at this point, a single systemic crisis, but a series of relatively self-contained disorders. Thus the European, Russian and Middle Eastern systems have different dynamics, and while they touch on each other, they have not yet reached the point of having merged into a single crisis.

Cyber 9/11 - Your Digital Data is a Mortal Risk / Politics / Cyber War

By: BATR

The tech culture would have you believe that the digital format has produced untold innovations and advancements for personal development, societal advancement and business innovations. Well, the glass is half full for the kool aide drinkers, but for the mere mortals, who seek out a meaningful life as opposed to a regimented existence, the curse of placing the most intimate data on untold hard drives and shuffled among unknown servers, a loss of simple privacy is the least of the problems.

Spratly Islands - China Beating Uncle Sam at His Own Game / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Mike_Whitney

The vast build up of military assets in the Asia-Pacific signals a fundamental change in U.S. policy towards China. Washington no longer believes that China can be integrated into the existing US-led system. Recent actions taken by China– particularly the announcement that it planned to launch an Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) that would compete head-to-head with the World Bank and IMF— have set off alarms in the Capital where behind-the-scenes powerbrokers and think tank pundits agree that a more “robust” policy is needed to slow China’s ascendency. The current confrontation in the South China Sea–where the US has demanded that China immediately cease all land reclamation activities–indicates that the new policy has already been activated increasing the prospects of a conflagration between the two nuclear-armed adversaries.

Commencement Graduation and Employment Prospects / Politics / Educating Children

By: BATR

Is it worth going to college to secure viable employment? Once, the future looked bright, for students earning a university degree and selecting from various offers from employers. Today the mere notion that such a question can and should be asked illustrates that the American economy has greatly transitioned into a very insecure and tenuous career opportunity society. When the lack of employment realities drives job seekers to leave the search for rewarding positions that offer a chance for a path to attaining middle class aspirations, the entire labor equation needs to be rethought.

Why Greece Must Leave Eurozone / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

French Economy Minister Emmanuel Macron and German Vice-Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel published a piece in the Guardian last week that instantly revived our long nourished hope for the European Unholy Union to implode and be dissolved, sooner rather than later. The two gentlemen propose a ‘radical’ reform for the EU. Going a full-tard 180º against the tide of rising euroskeptism, the blindest bureaucrats in European capitals are talking about more centralization in the EU.

Global Trade War US/EU against BRICS / Politics / New World Order

By: BATR

Do not be confused. Globalists whether Wall Street capitalists, corporatists, collectivist authoritarians or devoted internationalists, all share a common mindset – a worldwide financial system must control commerce and dictate economic activity. Under this formula, trade has little to do with free market transactions. Monopolies are the rule and real competition is fatal. So when the financial press emphasizes the difference between the IMF – World Bank faction and the newly aligned BRICS association, the conclusion usually misses and ignores that all the players are part of a globalist cabal committed to a New World Order.

How Governments Keep You and Your Money From Leaving / Politics / Taxes

By: MISES

Ryan W. McMaken writes: The IRS reports that more people renounced their US citizenship during the first quarter of 2015 than during any other quarter in history. Notably, a sizable portion of those renouncing their citizenship are doing so to escape heavy taxation. The United States one of only a handful of OECD nations that imposes a "worldwide" tax on its citizens and residents-- and is the only country other than the military dictatorship of Eritrea that taxes its citizens living abroad on literally all forms of income.

Kill the Export-Import Bank and Cut Corporate Taxes / Politics / US Economy

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Former Texas Governor Rick Perry announced his candidacy for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination earlier today. Many recall his 2012 bid, which came to a rather spectacular end when Gov. Perry, on live television, forgot the name of the third federal agency he promised to eliminate if elected president. However, in a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, Gov. Perry redeemed himself by offering a real candidate for elimination: the Export-Import Bank.

Why ISIS Just Grabbed the Resource More Essential Than Oil / Politics / Water Sector

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Dr. Kent Moors writes: When we think of the resources under threat when it comes to the conflict in Iraq, crude oil is usually the first that comes to mind.

But ISIS just brought another resource back into play… one that has been a cause of dispute for centuries.

Oil may be the driver of the Iraqi central budget and economy, but there is something else even more essential to the people who live there.

  • The Islamic State will continue to demonstrate considerable flexibility in its offensive operations. 
  • The Syrian government and rebel forces will have to increasingly devote their attention and resources to fighting the Islamic State, rather than prioritizing battles with each other.

US Senate’s Patriot Act Betrayal / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Watching the DC establishment respond to Senator Rand Paul’s efforts to sunset important aspects of the Patriot Act is like peeling back the skin of a decaying onion to expose the rot. Members of the Senate all take an oath to defend and protect the U.S. Constitution. Well those “public servants” who are doing their perfected “Potomac Two Step” would have the public believe that next week’s vote on some version of the House passed USA Freedom Act will halt the NSA from their systematic violation of 4th Amendment protections.

Export-Import Bank is Welfare for the One Percent / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

This month Congress will consider whether to renew the charter of the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im Bank). Ex-Im Bank is a New Deal-era federal program that uses taxpayer funds to subsidize the exports of American businesses. Foreign businesses, including state-owned corporations, also benefit from Ex-Im Bank. One country that has benefited from $1.5 billion of Ex-Im Bank loans is Russia. Venezuela, Pakistan, and China have also benefited from Ex-Im Bank loans.
