Rosenstein and Mueller: the Regime Change Tag-Team / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Let’s say you own a big US corporation but need help managing your domestic accounts. So you hire a bright, young man named Bruno who just graduated from Harvard Business School with a Masters in corporate finance.  And the first day on the job, you discover that Bruno has secretly employed a private detective who has obtained subpoena power to dig through all of your business accounts, all your investments past and present, all your taxes going back decades, and any personal transactions you might have made in the last 20 years or so.  And, oh yeah, and he also has the authority to interview anyone he chooses, including people who might have a grudge against you or who lost money on one of your dodgy real estate deals or who simply doesn’t like the way you comb your hair. And, of course, Bruno knows that the information he gathers is going to be deliberately tweaked to look as suspicious as possible, then it’s going to be leaked to the press and splashed across the headlines, then it’s going to be presented as evidence to a Grand Jury, and then, finally– after months of excruciating testimony and nonstop mud-slinging– it will be used in criminal proceedings that will lead your removal as CEO of your corporation.

Ian Bremmer: Trump Faces a Far More Dangerous Risk Than Impeachment / Politics / US Politics

By: John_Mauldin

by Patrick W. Watson : The words "Trump" and "impeachment" are often seen in the same sentence now. Few think it would happen. But there's no question another presidential impeachment attempt would be a wrenching experience for the nation.

Geopolitics expert and Eurasia Group founder Ian Bremmer doesn't worry about impeachment. Speaking at the Mauldin Economics Strategic Investment Conference on Tuesday, Bremmer said he sees a different and more worrisome risk.

Global Warming - Saving Us From Us / Politics / Climate Change

By: Richard_Mills

According to Al Gore if we would all pony up US$15,000,000,000,000.00 he and his cronies will save us from ourselves.

Gore’s Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) stated goal is net zero carbon emissions by 2050 to keep global temperatures from rising 2 degrees Celsius by 2100.

To this scribbler and question asker net zero carbon emissions costing $15T to accomplish seems like a radical environmental vision and a steep price for us to pay for it.

US Attack on North Korea Is Imminent / Politics / North Korea

By: John_Mauldin

George Friedman: The US is preparing to attack North Korea, according to Geopolitical Futures founder George Friedman—setting the stage for a difficult, messy war with potentially catastrophic consequences.

Speaking Monday to a rapt audience at the 2017 Strategic Investment Conference in Orlando, Friedman said that while it is unlikely the US will take action before President Trump returns home at the weekend, North Korea’s actions appear to have “offered the US no alternative” to a clash.

America's Southern Heritage is a Threat to the Deep State / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

In an age where the accounts of history are no longer taught or the chronicles of past generations are lost to the consciousness of the current culture; all that is left is a fairy tale of deception designed to confuse, indoctrinate and eliminate critical thinking. Astute students of the War of Northern Aggression understand that the cessation of hostilities set into motion the forces of imperialism and the perversion of a Constitution with the addition of harmful amendments. Liberty was the primary causality of all the bloodshed and the institution of a totalitarian statist regime became the permanent outcome of the conflict.

Manchester Bombing - ISIS Islamic Terrorist Attack Attempt to Influence BrExit Election / Politics / ISIS Islamic State

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The people of Britain are waking up to a terrorist bomb attack on young people attending an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena at 10.33pm killing 22 people, including children and injuring 59, Britain's worst terror attack since the London 7/7 bombings nearly 12 years ago. A suspected suicide bomber detonated a device at 10.33pm last night in the foyer as concert goers were leaving. The response of politicians has been to suspend election campaigning for at least 24 hours.

If China Can Fund Infrastructure With Its Own Credit, So Can We / Politics / Infrastructure

By: Ellen_Brown

May 15th-19th has been designated "National Infrastructure Week" by the US Chambers of Commerce, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and over 150 affiliates. Their message: "It's time to rebuild." Ever since ASCE began issuing its "National Infrastructure Report Card" in 1998, the nation has gotten a dismal grade of D or D+. In the meantime, the estimated cost of fixing its infrastructure has gone up from $1.3 trillion to $4.6 trillion.

Here’s Why Trump Won’t Pursue His Pledged Foreign Policy / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN : For all the tumult that has defined President Donald Trump’s domestic policy, his foreign policy is relatively stable.

There are some notable differences, but what went on before is pretty much what is going on now—a surprise given the expectations.

Trump promised to disengage from burdensome commitments to other countries, shifting the risks and costs of the security of allies away from the United States.

By: John_Mauldin

BY PATRICK WATSON : Before the election, few people would have predicted today’s healthcare standoff.

Clinton supporters expected Obamacare would continue with some minor adjustments. Those behind Trump thought Republicans would quickly repeal Obamacare, as repeatedly promised.

Instead, the GOP House (barely) passed a replacement plan that the GOP Senate has little interest in pursuing. Negotiations continue, so we’ll see.

The “Political Coup” Was Just Initiated In Washington D.C.! / Politics / US Politics

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The financial markets have already “priced in” huge tax cuts, reducing red tape regulations and a massive increase in infrastructure spending.

Perhaps, the markets are now believing that the agenda is not going to occur with Al Green asking for Trump impeachment?  This could result in a significant downturn for stocks if it were to unfold.

Subversion And Constructive Synthesis Of Capitalism And Socialism / Politics / Social Issues

By: Raymond_Matison

In America today there is evidence of long-term subversion undermining our democratic Republic.  Often tactics and propaganda are attributed to liberals, conservatives, Democrats or Republicans.  Unless we can be more precise in identifying and labeling persons or political parties responsible for this subversion, we will not be able to protect or maintain our Republic.  At a minimum, there is a need to review political party current platforms, and to find the source of subversion which dramatically is veering our republic away from its Constitutional origins towards a socialist state.

US Stock Market Slumps on Establishment / CIA Trump Impeachment Coup Plan / Politics / US Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The mainstream financial press as is nearly always the case in hindsight looked and found the smoking gun for Thursday's stock market Dow plunge of 372 points. As the latest attempts of the ruling establishment elite to entrap President Trump manifested in chaos so that he can be removed from office and replaced with a far more docile Mike Spence at their bidding. And so the establishment press directed by the CIA have been busy pumping out reams of Anti-Trump propaganda that paints a broad strokes picture that Trump really IS Putin's Manchurian candidate, a traitor even who gives America's darkest secrets to Czar Putin of Russia, who is playing his own game with glee.

Sinister NYT Plot to Oust Trump from Office / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

Likely colluding with anti-Trump dark forces, Times editors said his authority as president “does not extend to obstructing a federal investigation.”

No credible evidence proves it - only an alleged Comey memo not seen outside the Justice Department if it exists.

It cites him quoting Trump supposedly saying “I hope you can let this go,” referring the witch-hunt federal investigation into possible improper Michael Flynn connections to Russia - what never should have been initiated in the first place.

Long Knives Out for Trump / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

He’s a longtime establishment figure. How else could he become super-rich, able to be the GOP standard bearer, then president?

Yet he’s portrayed as an outlier. Undemocratic Democrats and media scoundrels despise him for preventing Hillary from getting the nation’s top job.

An unrelenting blitzkrieg persists to demonize, weaken and delegitimize him, a softening up process aimed at ousting him from office by forced resignation, impeachment or more sinister means.

Who Are ASEAN’s Biggest Military Spenders, Really?  / Politics / Asian Economies

By: Dan_Steinbock

The conventional military narratives highlight aggregate expenditures and downplay per capita spending. Realities are more nuanced, both globally and in Southeast Asia.

The conventional narrative is that China has become assertive, while the West is ignoring its defense needs. According to SIPRI research, in the past decade military spending in China and Russia increased 118% and 87%, respectively, while US spending plunged almost 5%.

GOP Establishment Elite Plots Trump Removal / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Russia, Russia and all things Russia!

The drum beat never ceases. Only the most dense and easily manipulated buy into the bogus narrative that Trump is a Russian asset subject to blackmail. After all these pathetic months of disinformation from the Beltway District of Criminals, the absence of factual reality has become the most rare commodity in the public arena. The establishment panic over the enactment of a robust America First policy administration has the bi-partisan ranks of dedicated Statists scheming to remove President Trump from office by any means necessary. It should be obvious that marginalizing his presidency started the day of his election. Now the ground work is being set to trump up some phony story, absent of any definitive proof, that will entice the GOP never Trumpers, to join in with the deranged Democrats to remove their most threatening nemesis.

Tax Reform and the ‘Repatriation’ Trade / Politics / Taxes

By: Gary_Tanashian

Since the Trump victory we have heard all about the coming fiscal policies that would replace the non-stop and brilliantly evil* monetary policies employed by the Fed since the 2008 market crash. These fiscal policies range from the hair-brained (rust belt factory job repatriation) to the silly (building a border wall in lieu of modernizing security-focused information and surveillance technologies) to the arduous (fixing the Healthcare system) to the sound (well-targeted tax cuts). We’ll get tax cuts, but how well targeted they’ll turn out to be will be debated endlessly and I for one don’t think the trend of the rich getting hyper richer and the poor getting poorer is going to reverse any time soon. For reference, see this post at Biiwii.

The Russian Hacking Fiasco / Politics / US Presidential Election 2016

By: Mike_Whitney

There’s no proof that Russia hacked the US elections.

There’s no proof that Russian officials or Russian agents colluded with members of the Trump campaign.

There’s no proof that Russia provided material support of any kind for the Trump campaign or that Russian agents hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails or that Russian officials provided Wikileaks with emails that were intended to sabotage Hillary’s chances to win the election.
