The Ebola Story Doesn’t Smell Right / Politics / Ebola

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

The federal government has announced that thousands of additional US soldiers are being sent to Liberia. General Gary Volesky said the troops would “stamp out” ebola.The official story is that combat troops are being sent to build treatment structures for those infected with ebola.

Why combat troops? Why not send a construction outfit such as an engineer battalion if it has to be military? Why not do what the government usually does and contract with a construction company to build the treatment units? “Additional thousands of troops” results in a very large inexperienced construction crew for 17 treatment units. It doesn’t make sense.

Last month in these pages, I wrote:

Patrick de la Chevardière, CFO of Total SA (which is France’s largest energy company), has publicly announced that Total is looking to finance its share in the $27-billion Yamal LNG project using euros, yuan, Russian rubles, and any other currency but US dollars.

“The effect of US sanctions was that Yamal LNG will be prevented from raising any dollar financings,” Patrick de la Chevardière stated in London at a news briefing.

Principle, Rigor and Execution Matter in U.S. Foreign Policy / Politics / US Politics

By: STRATFOR

U.S. President Barack Obama has come under intense criticism for his foreign policy, along with many other things. This is not unprecedented. Former President George W. Bush was similarly attacked. Stratfor has always maintained that the behavior of nations has much to do with the impersonal forces driving it, and little to do with the leaders who are currently passing through office. To what extent should American presidents be held accountable for events in the world, and what should they be held accountable for?

About 18 months ago, I had a very pleasant chat with a gentleman by the name of Luzi Stamm.

You may detect some measure of surprise in my words, and the reason for that is quite simple: Luzi Stamm is a politician; and, as regular readers will know, I am no fan of that particular class.

But Herr Stamm was different.

All Crazy Now – Mental Healthcare In The UK / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Andrew_McKillop

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Returning to the UK, more exactly Scotland after many years in France I could call this a move from TSD Land to PTSD Land and the facts and figures back that claim. France like all other aging or mature democracies such as the UK is struggling with the unstoppable growth of Altzheimer's disease victims, with the curve suggesting the incidence of this disease will be claiming 750 000 new victims per year by the 2020s. Also having a fast-growing (by EU standards) population and a growing number of childhood cancer victims, as well as adult victims, the French national health spending implications are somber, but what happens to surviving victims of Altzheimer's disease, the treatement of which is improving and extending life expectancy of victims? In Britain, a UK Medical Research Council report of late October provides some of the answers.

Humanity Accelerating to What Exactly? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Richard_Mills

We humans have been changing the world around us for tens of thousands of years. It's pretty much what we do, we shape and we change the existing environment through design and then indifference to the results of our actions.

The sheer scale and lightning fast speed of change since the 1950s has been almost unbelievable. So incredible and so sweeping are the changes scientists call the last 65 or so years the 'Great Acceleration'.

Lunatics Running US Foreign Policy / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Eric Margolis writes: NEW YORK – Things seemed crazy in the US and Canada last week, with a shooting on normally tranquil Parliament Hill in Ottawa and a grisly hatchet attack on two New York City policemen.

Add in an American doctor who returned to the big city from Ebola-stricken West Africa and proceeded to run around all over town – from the Bronx to the west Village to a bowling alley in Brooklyn – just as he was coming down with the dreaded sickness. New Yorkers are a pretty tough bunch, so panic was mild, but in this crowded city, it was still a big scare.

A Once Peaceful Canada Turns Militaristic; Blowback Follows / Politics / Canada

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

In 1968 the government of Canada decided to openly admit Americans seeking to avoid being drafted into the US war on Vietnam. Before, would-be immigrants were technically required to prove that they had been discharged from US military service. This move made it easier for Americans to escape President Johnson's war machine by heading north.

Although a founding member of NATO, Canada did not join the United States in its war against Vietnam. The Canadian government did not see a conflict 7,000 miles away as vital to Canada's national interest so Canada pursued its own foreign policy course, independent of the United States.

Why Do Banks Want Our Deposits? Hint: It’s Not to Make Loans / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

Many authorities have said it: banks do not lend their deposits. They create the money they lend on their books.

Robert B. Anderson, Treasury Secretary under Eisenhower, said it in 1959:

When a bank makes a loan, it simply adds to the borrower’s deposit account in the bank by the amount of the loan. The money is not taken from anyone else’s deposits; it was not previously paid in to the bank by anyone. It’s new money, created by the bank for the use of the borrower.

Obamacare Is Not a Revolution, It Is Mere Evolution / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: MISES

Roger McKinney writes: The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act focused the attention of Americans on government regulation as few issues have. However, they should have paid attention decades earlier because states have been eating away like termites at freedom in the healthcare insurance market for decades. The PPACA adds little to existing state regulations. States began dictating to insurance companies what to cover, whom to cover, when to cover them and how much they could charge in the 1950s. Massachusetts, home of Romneycare, the template for Obamacare, enacted the first state mandate in 1956 requiring insurers to cover mentally and physically handicapped children.[1]

The Secret Charm Of Plot Theory - Myths for a Stressful World / Politics / Conspiracy Theory

By: Andrew_McKillop

Writing in his Economics Blog, Martin Armstrong asks a loaded question. How do you hide something that is already in plain view, whether its the fact oil prices have to fall, the US doesn't run or own a “unipolar” world, or climate changes isn't anything to do with global warming? You hide it by exaggerating it and anything related to it to the point that all or certain critical parts of the story or “narrative” becomes so extreme that you or anybody can convert it to a conspiracy theory. Whatever happened, it was all designed and planned and executed by very clever and probably evil persons long in advance. So you can go back to sleep, now.

The American Dream Is Still Possible, Just Not in the US / Politics / Social Issues

By: Ron_Holland

Although there are no firm statistics on the number of Americans living outside the US, the US State Department estimates that somewhere between 3 and 6 million Americans now live offshore. I think this is a low estimate and the number is clearly growing.

I now live in Canada but often travel back to the United States. Driving through Customs near Buffalo is usually not a big ordeal but it does involve a time-wasting delay much like visiting the post office or any other US government bureaucracy. But governments should police their borders, as this is one of the few legitimate functions of a central government.

Are We Ready for the Fall of Baghdad? / Politics / Iraq War

By: Ron_Holland

I recently was in Vietnam and spent some time in prosperous, capitalist Saigon, now called Ho Chi Minh City, and toured the American War Museum. I believe there are a number of parallels between the Vietnam and Iraq War and that history could repeat itself now in Baghdad. Who can forget the former Vietnamese supporters of America being left behind as the last helicopter left the roof of the US embassy?

Today, America still has the strongest military in the world but our manufacturing capacity and financial situation shows the US is on a downhill slide like earlier over-extended and bankrupt empires throughout world history.

European Commission Mafia Demands £1.7 Billion from Britain, Test for Cameron Man or Mouse? / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

David Cameron has been huffing and puffing, and stamping his feet all day that Britain would not be held to ransom to the tune of a £1.7 billion 'adjustment' that the European Commission Mafia has conjured out of thin air as the Vig that Britain must pay by 1st of December for apparently economic activity attributed to the black economy such as prostitution. Conversely the EC Mafia's God Fathers, France and Germany rewarded themselves a comparable sum of near £1.7billion as a reward for being at the centre of the European Crime Syndicate.

War And The Law Of Unintended Consequences / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Upping the Ante
Vladimir Putin and several of his senior advisors in published statements have recently said the only logical conclusion of the US and EU goading Russia and upping the ante in the Ukrainian imbroglio is nuclear war. Strident calls for “The Pariah” or “Vlad the Vampire” to back down and back off would theoretically have to end in all-out nuclear war. Insane comments by (of course) unidentified “senior US military strategists” quoted in 'Wall St Journal' in August claimed that first strike nuclear attack by the West could prevent nuclear retaliation by Russia.

Evaluating Ebola as a Biological Weapon / Politics / Ebola

By: STRATFOR

Scott Stewart writes: Over the past few weeks, I've had people at speaking engagements ask me if I thought the Islamic State or some other militant group is using Ebola as a biological weapon, or if such a group could do so in the future. Such questions and concerns are not surprising given the intense media hype that surrounds the disease, even though only one person has died from Ebola out of the three confirmed cases in the United States. The media hype about the threat posed by the Islamic State to the United States and the West is almost as bad. Both subjects of all this hype were combined into a tidy package on Oct. 20, when the Washington Post published an editorial by columnist Mark Thiessen in which he claimed it would be easy for a group such as the Islamic State to use Ebola in a terrorist attack. Despite Thiessen's claims, using Ebola as a biological warfare agent is much more difficult than it might appear at first blush.

Turkey's Position on ISIL Misunderstood / Politics / Turkey

By: John_Browne

As territory in the Middle East falls under control of the brutal fanatics of ISIL, many Americans may be wondering how this could happen in the backyard of major U.S. allies. In particular, frustration with Turkey's reluctance to move against ISIL, even as it massacres civilians and creates instability on the Turkish border, is growing rapidly. Turkey's political calculation with respect to the crisis reveals just how complex and intractable the crisis may become.

Located between Europe and Asia, Turkey was once the epicenter of the vast Ottoman Empire that controlled much of the Middle East and even portions of the Balkans. After the First World War, with Turkey stripped of her empire, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk attempted to realign the non-Arab nation away from the rest of the Muslim world in favor of the West. This was a gigantic task, probably never attempted previously by any nation in history.
