Why Putin has KILLED Russia / Politics / Russia

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This is also why Putin has effectively KILLED Russia as Russia already had a stagnating population that will now suffer the consequence of a huge brain drain of millions of Russia's best and brightest young minds escaping to a better life abroad, The irony of Putin attempting to protect Russia has in fact KILLED Russia's future! It's GAME OVER for Russia! China will likely seek to capitalise on this dying empire where any close links that Putin forms with Emperor Xi Ping will ultimately result in the loss of Russian territory to China, as several millions of Chinese slip over Russia's eastern border in an stealth invasion in the name of friendship.

White House Inflation Scapegoat / Politics / Inflation

By: MoneyMetals

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason.

As the Biden administration scrambles to try to contain inflation – or at least make a public relations show of it – precious metals investors are wondering how much longer gold and silver prices will remain contained.

Metals markets got a bit of a lift this week through Thursday but have pulled back a bit here today. As of this Friday recording, gold is flat for the week now to trade at $1,860 per ounce. And silver is down 20 cents or 0.9% this week to trade at $22.12 an ounce.

How the NHS Is Forcing Patients to Go Private Due to Consultants with Conflict of Interest / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Like most religions there is myth and there is reality and so it is with Britain's NHS religion, at the heart of which lies the contracted in consultant's structure who tend to have half a leg in the NHS and half a leg in the private sector resulting in a conflict of interest that acts to funnel patients into the private sector as this example of what to expect at an NHS hospital when one presents themselves for competent treatment that tends to be wholly lacking at expect at the Northern General Hospitals' Orthopedics Fractures and Ankles clinic where even minor operations such as a suspected ruptured Achilles tendon tend to be met with the procedure for kicking the can down the road where consultants tend to IGNORE the patient whilst conversing with the GP practice by letter.

Northern General Hospital Orthopedics Fractures and and Ankle Clinic Consultations Real Patient Experience / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Here's what to at expect at the Northern General Hospitals' Orthopedics Fractures and Ankles clinic which is where I ended up with an appointment following an injury to my foot, a suspected ruptured Achilles tendon, in advance of which I had an ultrasound also at the Northern General where no info was forthcoming not even of it the scan showed anything good or bad, still that must be upto the consultant to explain what's what and what to do next to get back to recovery.

The entrance to the clinic is next to A&E, a quick book in using the reception touch screen and then after a 40 minute wait my name was called to enter a small cubical that had a computer screen that apparently had an image of what could be my foot so and began the consultation which lasted.....

Biden Seeks Inflation Scapegoats; Gold Advocate Wins GOP Primary / Politics / Government Spending

By: MoneyMetals

Elevated inflation readings and stock market turmoil continue to inflict pain on investors. Some are hoping for a quick turnaround. Others are just looking for a place to hide.

Unfortunately, there have been virtually no safe havens from the broad-based carnage outside of the energy sector and gold.

Gold has been one of the best performing assets this year by virtue of holding up better than stocks, bonds, and cryptos. But the yellow metal came under some heavy selling pressure in futures markets this week.

Metals markets seem to be trading more in line with economic slowdown fears and margin calls on Wall Street than with inflation. That will likely change when the recent spate of panic selling subsidies.

Why is vaping a trend amongst teens? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

The main objective at the start of the electric smoking industry was to get standard cigarette smokers to make the switch to an e-cigarette and combat their nicotine addictions. Though there are still millions of people who still use cigarettes, many people did decide to make the switch. Par of the electric smoking industry’s success is owed to a group of people that the industry had not taken into consideration, teenagers. As the e-smoking business grew, teenagers all over the world started using it, but is that a good thing?

Neither the FED nor US Government Can Print “Trust” / Politics / US Politics

By: Raymond_Matison

In this period of great economic, financial, monetary and geopolitical uncertainty, Borge Brende, the current president of the World Economic Forum, stated that countries need to prepare for the next crisis today.  Mr. Brende more importantly stated that “We have to focus on rebuilding trust. There is a lot of lack of trust”.  That is a very insightful and timely observation.  Stateside and nearer to home, a recent University of Michigan survey notes that confidence in US government policies is at its lowest since 2014.    

At the same time, available statistics show that 84% of the people in China trust their government, while 81% of Indonesians and 79% of the people in India trust their governments. How does one explain, that those countries which the western world criticizes for being oppressive or lacking freedom, when polled rank higher in trust of their governments than western democracies?

Climate Change Crisis and the Coming Global Reset / Politics / Climate Change

By: Richard_Mills

It is 2050. Beyond the emissions reductions registered in 2015, no further efforts were made to control emissions. We are heading for a world that will be more than 3C warmer by 2100.

The first thing that hits you is the air. In many places around the world, the air is hot, heavy and, depending on the day, clogged with particulate pollution. Your eyes often water. Your cough never seems to disappear. You think about some countries in Asia, where, out of consideration, sick people used to wear white masks to protect others from airborne infection. Now you often wear a mask to protect yourself from air pollution. You can no longer simply walk out your front door and breathe fresh air: there might not be any. Instead, before opening doors or windows in the morning, you check your phone to see what the air quality will be.

Melting permafrost releases ancient microbes today’s humans have never been exposed to and have no resistance to. Fewer people work outdoors and even indoors the air can taste slightly acidic, sometimes making you feel nauseated. The last coal furnaces closed 10 years ago, but that hasn’t made much difference in air quality around the world because you are still breathing dangerous exhaust fumes from millions of cars and buses everywhere. Our world is getting hotter. Over the next two decades, projections tell us that temperatures in some areas of the globe will rise even higher, an irreversible development now utterly beyond our control. Oceans, forests, plants, trees and soil had for many years absorbed half the carbon dioxide we spewed out. Now there are few forests left, most of them either logged or consumed by wildfire, and the permafrost is belching greenhouse gases into an already overburdened atmosphere. The increasing heat of the Earth is suffocating us and in five to 10 years, vast swaths of the planet will be increasingly inhospitable to humans. We don’t know how hospitable the arid regions of Australia, South Africa and the western United States will be by 2100. No one knows what the future holds for their children and grandchildren: tipping point after tipping point is being reached, casting doubt on the form of future civilisation. Some say that humans will be cast to the winds again, gathering in small tribes, hunkered down and living on whatever patch of land might sustain them.

The Avoidable Ukrainian Crisis, the unavoidable global hit / Politics / Ukraine War

By: Dan_Steinbock

                                 
To Russia and Ukraine, the crisis is an existential issue. To the US/NATO, it's an enlargement power play. To Europe, it spells a new era of uncertainty. In the world economy, it takes us all closer to an edge.  

The Ukraine crisis did not come out of the blue. It was allowed to happen. How did we get here?

The dominant view is to blame everything on Russia, as international media largely does. But critics and peace advocates see other factors as well. In effect, there’s four plausible scenarios and they are not mutually exclusive.

Washington Enters Full Scapegoat Mode for Brewing Inflation Disaster / Politics / Inflation

By: MoneyMetals

First It Was “Transitory,” Then a Sign of Recovery, Then Corporate Greed, Now It’s Vladimir Putin’s Fault!

First, they said inflation was transitory. Then when that line became untenable, they said inflation was a sign of a recovering economy. Then when polls showed most Americans believed they were losing ground financially, the White House blamed corporate greed. Now they’re saying it’s all Vladimir Putin’s fault.

Another volatile week of trading saw precious metals markets rally to new highs for the year on Tuesday before suffering a sharp drawdown on Wednesday and more selling on Friday.

The Tragedy of Ukraine’s Abyss - Three Decades of Misguided Geopolitics / Politics / Ukraine War

By: Dan_Steinbock

The Russia-Ukraine war was not warranted. Ukrainians despair for peace. Russia needs security. China offers development. But Blackwater, US, NATO and the far-right Ukrainian paramilitaries seek something very different.

In his TV address of February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin denounced three decades of NATO expansion and broken pledges to Russia. Moscow did not intend to occupy Ukraine but wanted to “demilitarize and de-nazify" the country. As bombs exploded in several Ukrainian cities, Putin’s speech was discounted in the West, even as Facebook reversed its ban on users praising the Azov Battalion, a Ukrainian neo-Nazi white supremacist military unit. 

In reality, Putin's address was not a rogue autocrat’s conspiracy fantasy.

Nuclear World War 3 Begins in Ukraine, China to Blitzkrieg Taiwan - The END! / Politics / Ukraine War

By: N_Walayat

The opening shots to World War 3 have been fired in Ukraine, a war that Ukraine was destined to lose form the outset regardless of the ramblings of clueless journalists many of whom were completely blind to what Putin was about to implement, just as most remain blind to what comes next, China;s blitzkrieg 'lightening war' on Taiwan, an aircraft and missile barrage round the clock shock and awe to soften Taiwan ahead of an amphibious landing, all timed to take all by surprise so that the US never has the chance to mobile forces to come to Taiwan's defence. That's what's coming next. With Putin after digesting Ukraine eyeing his next target which is likely to be Ukraine bordering Moldova that will further entrench THE PATH TO A NUCLEAR WORLD WAR 3! THE END!

Will There Be A 2024 US Presidential Election? / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

“All tyrannies rule through fraud and force, but once the fraud is exposed, they must rely exclusively on force.” ― George Orwell

“Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.” ― George Orwell

The smell of tyranny is in the air. The level of propaganda, disinformation, and mistruth has reached astounding heights, as the ruling oligarchy/Deep State/globalist cabal are thrashing about violently because their frauds are being exposed on a daily basis. This shift to the tyranny of force has massive implications for everyone on the planet. When every quote from Orwell’s 1984 applies every day to everything swirling around us, you begin to realize we are in the midst of a dystopian nightmare which gets more ghoulish by the day.

Beyond which there are countless further escalations as dictatorships across the globe are unleashed to seek to capitalise on the growing chaos of war such as on the China / India border, or Pakistan / India Border, and countless other grievances such as the perma hot potato that is the Middle East where we have the regions bully boy Israel probably seizing the opportunity to further grab chunks of neighbouring states with Syria and Lebanon in it's cross hairs that just like Putin will call up on ancient gobbledygook to justify war in 2022,, then there is the conflict at the heart of Islam of Sunni's vs Shia's, Arabs vs Persians, and countless more such incidences across the African continent and Asia such as our Dear Fat Leader in North Korea, embolden by Putin's war in Europe WW3 to join in on the chaos, with maybe western nations deploying their own land grabs under the banner of peace keeping, where Australia comes to mind which in past actions has tended to be no better than Russia or even Nazi Germany and may decide to .complete it's own version of the final solution on the rightful owners of the continent Brit's planted their flag on some 200 years ago.
