Basic Income in The Time of Crisis / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Basic income is a topic I’ve been thinking about for a while, and while I won’t get anywhere near a comprehensive overview -there are too many uncertainties and untested ideas-, I’m going to try to paint a first chapter in a work of progress. Or, a thought experiment, for me and others.

Of course I’ve read a lot of and about other people’s ideas on the topic, and I’m sure there are many more out there that I haven’t seen yet, but I’m afraid to say that about all of those I did read tend to fall into the same ‘trap’. That is, they project their ideas, which are widely varying, onto -or close to- the economy (economies) and society (societies) as they are today.

Explosions, Leaks, and Health Contamination:
Fracking’s Effects Even if You Don’t Live Near Well Pads
 
      Train engines pulling 100 oil tank cars that derail causing fires and explosions, trucks and 50-year-old pipelines that leak and explode into fireballs releasing toxic methane into the air, contributing to leaks in the protective ozone layer, are just three problems related to fracking, according to an expert on fracking.

Missing ’28 Pages’ of the 9/11 Report Released into Blitzkrieg of World Events / Politics / Iraq War

By: Jeff_Berwick

We have been massive and outspoken proponents that 9/11 was an inside job since our inception in 2010.  Five or more years ago that was a fairly extreme stance.  We’d often get people calling us “crazy,” but I’m used to it.

In the last few years, however, it appears that anyone who has a decent internet connection and has looked into the details of what happened on September 11, 2001, probably agrees with our stance.

For the last few years this has caused an outcry that the “missing 28 pages” from the 9/11 Report be released.  Eventually, as the pressure increased, we became confident the pages would be released and began to wonder about the timing.

Erdogan Might Have Known about the Coup but Didn’t Prevent It on Purpose / Politics / Turkey

By: John_Mauldin

A coup has to be carefully planned for many weeks. It requires endless meetings and preparation. Many thousands of troops, tanks, helicopters, and all the rest, must suddenly appear in the streets and take over.

And all of this planning has to take place in complete secrecy. Without the element of surprise, there is no coup.

Cop Shootings - America Resembles Gunfight at the OK Corral / Politics / Social Issues

By: Stephen_Lendman

Hollywood is now real life. Instead of good v. bad guys shoot ‘em ups, it’s killer cops against people of color, mostly unarmed Black youths, victims of racist injustice.

Do five Dallas police officers lethally shot days earlier, another 10 wounded and now three Baton Rouge cops killed, seven others wounded on Sunday indicate victims are beginning to retaliate - or perhaps as one of my readers suggests a “gov’t covert ops designed to foment race war.”

Erdogan Reign of Terror Following Failed Coup Plot / Politics / Turkey

By: Stephen_Lendman

He’s back in Ankara, military forces loyal to his regime crushing remnants of Friday’s rebellion. His first order of business is solidifying power, eliminating opposition and hardening dictatorial rule. It's just beginning.

Security forces retook control of state-run broadcaster TRT after rebels seized it. Turkish Airlines resumed flights to and from Istanbul’s Ataturk airport after suspending them yesterday. Various international airlines halted their own as a precaution.

Attempted Military Coup in Turkey / Politics / Turkey

By: Stephen_Lendman

Turkey is no stranger to military coups, three occurring in the post-Ottoman era, the last one in September 1980 before the July 15 attempted takeover.

It continued overnight. Events are fast moving. Reports indicate scores killed, many others injured, numerous arrests made by regime authorities. They remain in power - martial law and a curfew imposed.

When Will They Learn? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Submissions

Jeff Thomas writes: It will be no surprise to readers to say that collectivism is growing in the Western World. It matters little whether we refer to it as socialism, communism, Marxism, Fabianism, totalitarianism or any of its other names, the collectivist ideal is on the rise.

British conservatives worry over the extreme collectivist speeches of the new Labour leader,Jeremy Corbyn, who is far more to the left of the former leader, Ed Miliband, yet often fail to notice that Tory leaders are also becoming more collectivist in their rhetoric. Certainly the incoming Prime Minister, Theresa May, is further to the left than, say, Margaret Thatcher, yet we Britons often fail to notice that both of the primary parties are moving further to the left.

A Brexit in Name Only? / Politics / BrExit

By: John_Browne

The BREXIT vote on June 23rd was part of a growing global trend in which ordinary people are expressing a desire to retain national sovereignty regardless of the cost and suffering that may be involved. The result is rightly seen as a repudiation of the political and financial elites, and should be viewed as evidence that the economic optimism presented in the halls of power has found scant credibility on the streets. The same sentiments can be seen on this side of the Atlantic in the surprising successes of the Donald Trump presidential campaign.

The EU Is in a Legal Battle That Will Define Its Future / Politics / European Union

By: John_Mauldin

I spent considerable time last week discussing Brexit with my good friend George Friedman.

George’s opinion is invaluable to me because he is the most dispassionate person I know. He analyzes geopolitics by looking at facts and following them wherever they lead.

George is no one’s cheerleader or nemesis. He calls the shots exactly as he sees them, and he’s usually right.

Black Lives Matter - Obama’s Race War is No Accident / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

What will it take for citizens to face up to the nature of the state of terror against the American people? All the attention about Islamic suicide fanatics provides ample cover to ignore the pathetic condition of race relations that has been a hallmark of the Obama administration. If a POTUS person of color was accused of festering discontent, the fable disinformation media would pay no attention to or paint the charges as racist. The liberal sociopaths that project the progressive culture are obsessed with smearing all dissent from their authoritarian oppression as based upon bigotry that objects to the supremacy of their multicolored Marxism.

Stephen McBride, Garret/Galland Research

The June 23 decision by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union shocked many people. If we take a closer look at voter demographics, however, the reasons behind the Leave victory become much clearer.

Below, we look at the most significant voter patterns to emerge from the referendum.

Here’s How Much Europe Depends on the UK / Politics / BrExit

By: John_Mauldin

Euroskeptiscism is on the rise in Europe. Countries like Poland and Hungary have actively sought to limit the EU’s influence and ignore its rules—most recently with regard to refugee policies.

Even the most Euroskeptic governments, however, campaigned against Brexit. While European nations may want to limit the EU’s role and influence at home, both economic and security interests led them to support the UK’s membership in the EU (read our free special report on Brexit implications).

Brexit Doesn’t Change the Sad Reality of Europe / Politics / European Union

By: John_Mauldin

Europe was already in a shambles before the Brexit vote (read Mauldin Economics’ special report on Brexit implications). The UK’s decision may have made a bad situation more volatile. Europe, however, would still be a mess if “Remain” had won.

  • If Remain had won, refugees from Africa and the Middle East, many with the UK as their destination, would still be struggling across the Mediterranean or taking land routes into Eastern Europe. The EU would still be desperately trying to stem the tide and to accommodate those whom it can’t stop.

Theresa 'Cersei' May Wins Tory Game of Thrones to Seize Conservative 'Iron Throne' / Politics / BrExit

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Home Secretary and master tactician Theresa 'Cersei' May surprised all by succeeding in seizing the Tory 'Iron Throne' some 2 months ahead of schedule, putting David 'Lannister' Cameron on 48 hours notice to quit No 10 Downing Street. The seeds for today's victory were sown a week ago ago as BBC newsnight revealed emerging details of a plan hatched to kill off Andrea Leadsom's building campaign before it gained further momentum.
