Russia, Ukraine War - It’s Time to Play the “Gazprom Card” / Politics / Natural Gas

By: Money_Morning

As the situation in Ukraine continues to unravel, the West is certain to develop another round of sanctions against Russia.

Unlike the first set, these new sanctions will almost certainly have a more direct bearing on the energy sector.

And now that Russian gas behemoth Gazprom (OTC: OGZPY) has once again threatened to cut off the gas supply to Ukraine if Kiev doesn’t pay what it owes, worry has begun to creep into the European Union headquarters in Brussels.

ISIS Is Only A Metastase – Not The Original Cancer / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: Andrew_McKillop

Obama Says Extract The Cancer of ISIS
President Obama is not an oncologist but a golfer and a politician when he is off the golf links, so we don't have to treat his diagnosis as definitive. For metastases to appear there is obligatorily a deep-seated, primary, primitive or original cancer either still present today or no longer present but active in the form of metastases. Each of these can in turn generate a new deep-seated cancer, oncologists tell us, but the process is in no way 100% predictable.

EU Gas Supply Is In Real And Imminent Danger / Politics / Energy Resources

By: Raul_I_Meijer

More accusations fly across the media, like so many flocks of Canada geese, of direct Russian involvement in Ukraine. Much is made of an interview with Donetsk National Republic leader Alexander Zakharchenko, in which he “admits” there are Russian volunteers fighting on his side.

To the west, that’s all the proof they need. There are 1000 Russians in Ukraine, cries NATO. That doesn’t make them the Russian army though. If there are only 1000, that would be disappointing. These are people who are seeing their family just across the border shot to bits.

The Monetary Killing Fields / Politics / Central Banks

By: Fred_Sheehan

The house organ for the Council of Foreign Relations, Foreign Affairs, has published its final solution under the title: "Print Less and Transfer More: Why Central Banks Should Give Money directly to the People." Written under the names Mark Blyth and Eric Lonergan, but trumpeting the establishment voice of, say, Martin Wolf, they state: "It's well past time, then, for U.S. policymakers - as well as their counterparts in other developed countries - to consider a version of Friedman's helicopter drops.... Many in the private sector don't want to take out any more loans; they believe their debt levels are already too high. That's especially bad news for central bankers: when households and businesses refuse to rapidly increase their borrowing, monetary policy can't do much to increase their spending.... Governments must do better. Rather than trying to spur private-sector spending through asset purchases or interest-rate changes, central banks, such as the Fed, should hand consumers cash directly.... The transfers wouldn't cause damaging inflation, and few doubt that they would work. The only real question is why no government has tried them."

Foley Beheading: Terrorism as Theater / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: STRATFOR

Robert D. Kaplan writes: The beheading of American journalist James Foley by the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq was much more than an altogether gruesome and tragic affair: rather, it was a very sophisticated and professional film production deliberately punctuated with powerful symbols. Foley was dressed in an orange jumpsuit reminiscent of the Muslim prisoners held by the United States at Guantanamo Bay. He made his confession forcefully, as if well rehearsed. His executioner, masked and clad in black, made an equally long statement in a calm, British accent, again, as if rehearsed. It was as if the killing was secondary to the message being sent.

The ISIS Menace - Just What We Need, Another War / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: Danny_Schechter

New York, New York: Sound the bugle! Get the press to march along; we are going to war.

Again!

Enemies r ‘us, and for a long time with the killing of bin Laden, a Jihadi fatigue had set in. With the apparent shriveling up of the Al Qaeda menace, America’s threat-defining and refining machinery was somewhat adrift. What had been so simple, turned too complex to fuse into one soundbite.

Ukraine Standoff Signals Global Power Shift / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Power Shift
Following from and related to the economic proxy war, by sanctions, engaged by the EU28 and US against Putin's Russia, and counter-sanctions by Russia against the “Atlantic Alliance”, we do not have to look very far for sequels. Plenty of EU28 banking groups are now on a short fuze, for example on the borrowing of PKO Bank Polski, Poland's largest lender. Able earlier this year to raise over 2 billion euros this lender's timing was very lucky. Even “EU28 core” private banks, including BNP of France and Deutsche of Germany may soon face “unexpected difficulties” recapitalizing their bad debt. Banks of the “southern tier” or Club Med countries will soon face serious difficulties, like Portugal's Banco Espirito Santo group's “unexpected difficulties”.

Scottish Independence Vote / Politics / UK Politics

By: Jonathan_Davis

The vote in September is unlikely to be Yes for Independence – though the polls are closer now than a few months ago and there is a large undecided bloc.  However, I’ll be surprised if Scotland votes Yes especially as the Establishment is out in force telling the people to vote No.

Why would that be, I wonder?  See below.

The Monopoly of the Government Education Cartel / Politics / Education

By: BATR

Learning is a noble pursuit, but the ancient Greek text is one of the few places where the Socratic Method survives. Sanctioned political doctrine of required thinking is the mainstay in today’s august temples of purification. Forget about a classroom, the curriculum core of New Age studies has no room for the classics, much less instructions into the process of thinking itself. Except, of course for the need to electronically check off the loan applications and assign grants to the business office. In the end, university is big business and developing intelligent graduates happens as an afterthought, if at all.

U.S. Empire’s Bumpy Ride / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Merrill

If you are one of those defeatist-type Americans, always alarmed over the dire fate of the US economy, actually believing 2 + 2 = 4, it may be best not to shift your glance to the state of US foreign policy today.

Obamaville’s geopolitical stance is harder to grasp than a BLS formula for unemployment is.

And if the thought is, quaintly, of defending the US shores and citizens you are decades behind the curve.

America's Blacks Must Confront Reality / Politics / Social Issues

By: LewRockwell

Walter E. Williams writes: Though racial discrimination exists, it is nowhere near the barrier it once was. The relevant question is: How much of what we see today can be explained by racial discrimination? This is an important question because if we conclude that racial discrimination is the major cause of black problems when it isn’t, then effective solutions will be elusive forever. To begin to get a handle on the answer, let’s pull up a few historical facts about black Americans.

Will The US Succeed in Breaking Russia to Maintain Dollar Hegemony?... / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Clive_Maund

In Why they are making an enemy of Russia? we looked at two of the key reasons why the US is making an enemy of Russia, namely the promotion of conflict by the powerful Defense industry lobby in order to keep its order books full, and the value of conjuring up an external enemy as a hate figure for the masses, in order to take the heat off the government. In this article we are going to look at what is arguably an even bigger reason, that was largely omitted in the earlier article, which is that Russia, in alliance with China, is threatening to bring an end to the dollar as the global reserve currency, which would mean the end of the American empire.

Iraq and Syria Follow Lebanon's Precedent / Politics / Syria

By: STRATFOR

By George Friedman: Lebanon was created out of the Sykes-Picot Agreement. This agreement between Britain and France reshaped the collapsed Ottoman Empire south of Turkey into the states we know today -- Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, and to some extent the Arabian Peninsula as well. For nearly 100 years, Sykes-Picot defined the region. A strong case can be made that the nation-states Sykes-Picot created are now defunct, and that what is occurring in Syria and Iraq represents the emergence of those post-British/French maps that the United States has been trying to maintain since the collapse of Franco-British power.
