Adventures in Castro’s Cuba / Politics / Social Issues

By: David_Galland

Dear Paraders,

Some years ago my then girlfriend, now wife, Deirdre and I set off to search Planet Earth for our personal paradise.

Cuba was one of the places we seriously considered.

My logic at the time—and this would be about 1995—was that Castro’s regime couldn’t last. And that once his heavy grip on the throat of the economy was released, the country’s natural charms and resources, sited as they are just 90 miles off the coast of Florida, would assure an entrepreneurially-minded individual (me) a solid chance of profiting.

Rising Populism in America, Russia and Europe & The Rise of India / Politics / Social Issues

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew

The entire west is in the grip of Populism. The Spectacular victory of Donald Trump acts as a catalyst for its rise and spread in France, Germany, Britain, Ireland, Italy and etc. The common people in Germany fear that if Angeline Merkel is elected again, Germany will be isolated from the rest of the West or Europe and they have to pay very great price. These rising trends have forced CNN and other media to discuss about the rising or spreading of Populism in the West.

America, is it Finally time for us to say Goodbye? / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

few months ago my wife and I made a trip into the city from our small rural community for an evening of dining and visiting with some of her old childhood friends. We started our date with just the two of us at a well known vegetarian restaurant. Later we met up with the rest of the crew at a local park near the beach to watch some skits and some dancing while the sun went down over English Bay. It was a beautiful sunset in an amazing setting.

While we’re sitting and chatting in the bleachers of the small amphitheatre my wife’s friend asks us at which restaurant we ate. We told her and with a raised eyebrow she replies: “Really, Francis actually ate in a vegetarian restaurant? Wow. That must have been quite an experience for you!”

Referendum Puts Italy's Government to the Test / Politics / Italy

By: STRATFOR

Forecast

  • If Italian voters reject a raft of proposed constitutional reforms on Dec. 4, the government will likely resign.
  • Should that happen, Parliament could avoid triggering early elections by appointing a caretaker government instead.
  • The prospect of a victory by political parties that are critical of the eurozone will continue to create uncertainty in Italy and the rest of the currency area.

The Beginning of the End of the European Union / Politics / European Union

By: Jeff_Berwick

Is this the most important time in the EU’s history?

Italy and Austria take votes at the beginning of December that could destabilize or even end the euro and the EU itself.

This is part of a destabilizing trend that we’ve long noted and anticipated, some 16 months ago with the destruction of the EU’s Schengen agreement that used to stand for free-travel throughout Europe.

Prime Minister Modi's War Against Corruption, Black Money and Fake Currency Notes in India / Politics / India

By: Dr_R_M_Mathew

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched relentless war against Corruption and the associated widely circulating Black Money and Fake Currency Notes in India with a surprise move, as part of his election promises. Black money and fake currency notes have grown to the extent of even destabilizing the Indian Economy and the Nation for which the enemies of the nation, within and outside, have been working. From the strategic point of view, especially in the wake of the increasing Islamic Terrorism sponsored by Pakistan, India has no other option but to uproot both Black and Fake Money at any cost, along with Corruption.

Can President Trump Really Drain the Swamp? / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

The glorious and providential intervention that provided the courage and motivation for millions of ordinary Americans to vote AGAINST the globalist system, which is the epitome for national betrayal is a once in a lifetime opportunity to eliminate the traitors in our society. Donald J. Trump is only a man. He is not the savior of our civilization, nor is he a miracle worker. Yet his election provides the last best hope that the forces of human enslavement, within our own power structure, can be defeated. Citizens who actually participate in the political process need to practice RealPolitik, when it comes to influencing or shaping public policy.

President Trump’s Economic Plan Isn’t Going to Work / Politics / US Economy

By: Mike_Whitney

Will Donald Trump be good for the US economy?

The American people seem to think so. According to a recent survey taken by Gallup “Americans have relatively high expectations (of) the president-elect… Substantial majorities (upward of 60%) believe the Trump administration will improve the economy and create jobs. A slim majority (52%) say he’ll improve the healthcare system.”

Even more impressive, the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index spiked to a 93.8 -high in November, signaling a significant improvement in overall consumer attitudes about the economy.

President Trump Is Facing Lenin’s Dilemma / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Mauldin

George Friedman: When the Bolsheviks took power during the Russian Revolution in 1917, their intention was to create the dictatorship of the proletariat. They formed an army to fight a civil war against a counterinsurgency of monarchists who intended to destroy the Bolsheviks.

Vladimir Lenin, who led the revolution, appointed Trotsky to form the Red Army.

One problem was that he had never served in an army, let alone commanded one.

But Trotsky was chosen not because he had experience building an army. He was chosen because Lenin trusted Trotsky wouldn’t betray him.

The US Is Undemocratic by Its Very Nature / Politics / US Presidential Election 2016

By: John_Mauldin

George Friedman : The final irony in an election filled with irony is the refusal of some voters to accept President-elect Donald Trump’s victory. This group includes more than mere protesters. There is a good-sized movement to persuade the Electoral College to vote for Clinton instead of Trump.

The irony is that it was Trump who said he would refuse to accept the results of the election. The Clinton camp charged that Trump was fighting against the sanctity of democracy. Now each has adopted the other’s position. Clinton herself, though, has not sought to overturn the election.

Fifty Years Later, Moore's Computing Law Holds / Politics / Technology

By: STRATFOR

By Matthew Bey : Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel Corp., published his now iconic article — Cramming More Components into Integrated Circuits — in the journal Electronics on April 19, 1965. In this paper, Moore observed that the number of transistors fitting on a computer circuit board had roughly doubled each year. A decade later the time-scale was revised to 18-24 months and dubbed "Moore's Law." Following this principle, a computer purchased today would cost about half the price in two years. Processing is now down to one-sixtieth the cost it was a decade ago.

Fidel Castro and the American Empire / Politics / US Politics

By: Antonius_Aquinas

The death of the brutal Cuban Communist dictator Fidel Castro closes the door, in some respect, on another disastrous page in US foreign policy history.  For all the denunciations and criticism of Castro from conservative elements and exiled Cubans, his despotic rule was the outcome of decades of American imperialism which began with President William McKinley’s infamous decision to wage war on hapless Spain in 1898.

To Really 'Make America Great Again,' End the Fed! / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Former Dallas Federal Reserve Bank President Richard Fisher recently gave a speech identifying the Federal Reserve's easy money/low interest rate policies as a source of the public anger that propelled Donald Trump into the White House. Mr. Fisher is certainly correct that the Fed's policies have "skewered" the middle class. However, the problem is not specific Fed policies, but the very system of fiat currency managed by a secretive central bank.

Castro Was Not Who You Thought He Was / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Castro is dead, but he achieved his purpose, which was to aggravate the Cold War, provide a test case for communism and frighten people about incipient nuclear missile exchanges.

His passing marks the end of the first phase of the Cold War. Now it is very obvious that a second phase is being prepared.

Tensions between Russia and the US are being continually heightened… and no, they are still ongoing even with the election of Trump who, under the guidance of Henry “War Criminal” Kissinger, has pledged his full support for NATO while Putin has replied that he will crush NATO.

It's (sigh) President Trump / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

When Sen. Barack Obama was running for the presidency and for most of his two terms, the Tea Party right-wing claimed he was born in Kenya, that he was a radicalized Muslim, and was unfit to be president. The rise of the Tea Party led to a rise of racist ideology and an increase of violence during political rallies.

After Sen. Obama’s election, Sen. Mitch McConnell, Senate majority leader, said the Republicans’ primary direction was solely to block whatever the new President wanted to do. Other Republicans chimed in that President Obama was out to destroy the country. The country did not destruct under the Obama Administration.

Understanding the Trump Presidency , Beyond Merkel / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: STRATFOR

By Reva Goujon : We hear all the time about how the world "should" work. Self-proclaimed liberals and conservatives, Keynesians and Reaganites, humanists and hawks, globalists and nationalists have crammed the airwaves and filled our Twitter feeds with policy prescriptions, promoting their worldview while scorning others'. But after the emotionally charged year this has been, I suspect many people are growing weary of big theories and cursory character assassinations. Instead, it may be time to replace the pedantry with something more fundamental — and less divisive — in which to ground our thoughts and make sense of the world.

Germany Pulls the Plug on Market Oracle site for 24 hours, German Election BrExit GerExit Warning Shot? / Politics / Internet

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Market Oracle site is hosted on its own dedicated server in Nuremberg Germany, which so far has proved highly reliable with ample capacity of more than ten times normal server load to cope with any occasional traffic spikes that tend bring other sites down to a crawl or even offline. So we were surprised to see our site effectively go dead around 1.40pm Friday.

So for the first couple of hours we tried the usual checks, all failed as we had no access to the server at all, it was though the plug had been pulled.Here's a video uploaded 14 hours into the shutdown of what was happening at the time.

Establishment Controlled Mainstream Media Launches War on Alternative 'Fake' News / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Jeff_Berwick

It’s mainstream versus alternative media.

A list of “fake news” has been circulating that includes such prominent conservative and libertarian sources as Zero Hedge, Breitbart, The Blaze, Red State, the Daily Wire, Project Veritas, WND, and Infowars among many others.

These sources are not “fake” however. You can find a lot of truth on them. On the other hand, former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul recently circulated a list of mainstream reporters who evidently colluded with the Clintons and were named by WikiLeaks for doing so.
