EU President Tells David Cameron to Get Stuffed on Migrant Benefits Reforms / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The un elected President of the European Parliament, warned David Cameron that even the heavily watered down agreement due to be announced by the end of this week would not be legally binding and subject to debate and revision by MEP members AFTER the UK votes to stay in the European Union, members who will be guided by their respective UK benefits recipient governments such as Poland, Hungary, and a dozen other eastern european UK benefits claiming states.

The Phantom Free Syrian Army Moderate Rebels / Politics / Syria

By: Stephen_Lendman

So-called Free Syrian Army moderates exist only in US-led Western and media scoundrel propaganda reports - along with deliberate deception from Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other regional rogue states.

No such forces exist. All anti-Syrian elements are US-created terrorist groups, including ISIS, Al Qaeda, Jabhat al-Nusra and their offshoots.

Government Mandatory Depression Screening is A Depressing Thought / Politics / Government Intervention

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

The United States Preventive Services Task Force recently recommended mandatory depression screening for all Americans. The task force wants to force health insurance companies to pay for the screening. Basic economics, as well as the Obamacare disaster, should have shown this task force that government health insurance mandates harm Americans.

North Korean military related activities are solely for self-defense - given longstanding US-led Western hostility and forced isolation.

Provocative US-led NATO military activities are far more extensive and menacing, preparing for premeditated wars alliance members frequently wage.

The End of Tax Havens? / Politics / Taxes

By: Casey_Research

By Jeff Thomas

The image above is of a World War II German Panzer tank. So, what does that have to do with tax havens? I’ll get to that soon.

But first, let’s look at the Isle of Jersey, one of the islands in the English Channel. Most people think of it as a British tax haven, but it’s not, strictly speaking, a part of the UK and not a member of the EU. It’s a self-governing parliamentary democracy under a constitutional monarchy and has its own legal, judicial, and, most importantly, financial systems. For decades, it’s been a choice location for those who seek to avoid taxation.

BrExit EU Referendum - Britain's FINAL Chance for Freedom From Emerging European Superstate / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britain's Prime Minister, David Cameron emerged on Tuesday waving a piece of paper 'Chamberlain' style of a 'draft' deal that follows several months of negotiations that had the PM running around Europe begging the likes of Donald Tusk (former Polish Prime Minister) and former eastern block nations for some return of sovereignty to Britain. A piece of paper that whilst heavy on number of pages but is light on substance of anything that comes even close to matching the Conservative Manifesto pledges of a series of supposed red lines ahead of Britain's EU In / Out referendum.

EU UK Draft or Daft Agreement By Donald Tusk to Members of the European Council in Full / Politics / EU_Referendum

By: Nadeem_Walayat

David Cameron's The long awaited agreement with Donald Tusk that was said would settle the UK's place in the European Union for once and for all ahead of an EU in out referendum. On first glance the lengthy 150 page+ proposal looks confusing and contradictory in places whilst weak on actual substance of what David Cameron had set out as his red lines on benefits and controlling unlimited EU migration. I am going to have to spend several hours trying to understand this MESS, but it does appear to be complete and utter slap in the face for Britain, which itself will be heavily watered down by predominantly eastern european states that are on the receiving end of £15 billion per annum in transfer payments from UK tax payers such as benefits claimed sent home to support eastern european economies.

Ron Paul - Is U.S. Congress Declaring War on ISIS...or on You? / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Passage of Senator Mitch McConnell's authorization for war against ISIS will not only lead to perpetual US wars across the globe, it will also endanger our civil and economic liberties. The measure allows the president to place troops anywhere he determines ISIS is operating. Therefore, it could be used to justify using military force against United States citizens on US territory. It may even be used to justify imposing martial law in America.

Deep State: Inside Washington's Shadowy Power Elite - Video / Politics / US Politics

By: Jesse

“Our plutocracy, whether the hedge fund managers in Greenwich, Connecticut, or the Internet moguls in Palo Alto, now lives like the British did in colonial India: ruling the place but not of it. If one can afford private security, public safety is of no concern; to the person fortunate enough to own a Gulfstream jet, crumbling bridges cause less apprehension, and viable public transportation doesn’t even compute. With private doctors on call and a chartered plane to get to the Mayo Clinic, why worry about Medicare?”― Mike Lofgren, The Deep State: The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government

A Dangerous Moment for Social Security / Politics / Social Issues

By: Casey_Research

By Justin Spittler

Social Security funds are drying up…will there be any money left when you retire?

Social Security is America’s largest federal program. In 2015, it paid out $870 billion to more than 59 million Americans.

Most Americans see Social Security as a retirement savings program. During your working life, you pay 6.2% of every paycheck to Social Security. In return, the government sends you a check every month after you retire.

Another U.S. Constitutional Convention: An Idea Whose Time Has Not Come / Politics / US Politics

By: Antonius_Aquinas

In the midst of the seemingly indeterminable presidential electoral campaign, some of the candidates have been asked about the possibility of convening a constitutional convention in the hope of addressing the nation’s most pressing issues, most ominously the gargantuan federal deficit now in excess of $18 trillion.

Governor John Kasich supports such a notion with the explicit purpose of passing a balanced budget amendment.

Ron Paul Warns Congress is Writing the President a Blank Check for War / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

While the Washington snowstorm dominated news coverage this week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was operating behind the scenes to rush through the Senate what may be the most massive transfer of power from the Legislative to the Executive branch in our history. The senior Senator from Kentucky is scheming, along with Sen. Lindsey Graham, to bypass normal Senate procedure to fast-track legislation to grant the president the authority to wage unlimited war for as long as he or his successors may wish.

Sarah Palin’s Quixotic Quest for Relevance / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

She’s back and tightly holding Donald Trump’s coattails.

That’s right, Sarah Palin, having again found the media spotlight, is casting her shadow across the more thoughtful conservatives.

This past week she declared her undying love and support of Trump’s attempt to seize the presidency from the more experienced and knowledgeable candidates in the Democratic, Republican, and Green parties, and is blathering her way throughout Iowa, New Hampshire, and several early primary states to stir up Trump’s far-right base.

Ron Paul on When Peace Breaks Out With Iran... / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

This has been the most dramatic week in US/Iranian relations since 1979.

Last weekend ten US Navy personnel were caught in Iranian waters, as the Pentagon kept changing its story on how they got there. It could have been a disaster for President Obama's big gamble on diplomacy over conflict with Iran. But after several rounds of telephone diplomacy between Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif, the Iranian leadership - which we are told by the neocons is too irrational to even talk to - did a most rational thing: weighing the costs and benefits they decided it made more sense not to belabor the question of what an armed US Naval vessel was doing just miles from an Iranian military base. Instead of escalating, the Iranian government fed the sailors and sent them back to their base in Bahrain.

A Treasury press release said Iran’s ballistic missile program was targeted, unrelated to its nuclear activities.

Re-Covering Oil and War / Politics / Crude Oil

By: Raul_I_Meijer

The first thing that popped into our minds on Tuesday when WTI oil briefly broached $30 for its first $20 handle in many years, was that this should be triggering a Gawdawful amount of bets, $30 being such an obvious number. Which in turn would of necessity lead to a -brief- rise in prices.

Apparently even that is not so easy to see, since when prices did indeed go up after, some 3% at the ‘top’, ‘analysts’ fell over each other talking up ‘bottom’, ‘rebound’ and even ‘recovery’. We’re really addicted to that recovery idea, aren’t we? Well, sorry, but this is not about recovering, it’s about covering (wagers).

Obama's 2016 State of the Union Address - Brilliant Bullshit! / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Shedlock

On Tuesday evening I watched president Obama's state of the union address. It was brilliant.

Obama rang all the bells, dotted all the i's, and attacked all the ghosts. At times, he even made sense.

All in all, it was a brilliant effort, possibly his best speech ever, even though his speech was essentially bullshit.

Escalating Crisis of the Muslim World for the Koranic Backing of Radical Islam, Terrorism and Sunni – Shiite Clashes / Politics / Religion

Till the end of the twentieth century over 90 % of the world Muslims and almost all the rest of the Humanity believed that Islam was a Religion of Peace and it was one of the best religions having solutions to most of the problems of the Humanity. People belonged to other religions or even irreligious people had been attracted towards Islam or converted to Islam for the example of peace-loving and spiritual Muslims, including Sufis.

Feeling Abandoned, Saudi Arabia Ups the Ante / Politics / Saudi Arabia

By: John_Browne

Last week a major diplomatic crisis developed between Saudi Arabia and Iran over the Saudi execution of Nimr al Nimr, a charismatic Shiite cleric and anti-Sunni political activist. Nimr's execution was an important political decision. On its face, it served to increase tensions in the developing struggle between Saudi Arabia and Iran for regional influence, a drama that has come to full boil as a result of decades of American policy mistakes. This Middle Eastern cold war, which divides Islam along Sunni/Shia sectarian lines, now threatens international oil supplies and regional peace.
