Debt - The Elephant In the G20 Room


by Ian R Thorpe.

Forget the trouble in Syria or the brewing global conflict, the real problem still, the one all globalist politicians and New World Order financiers are trying to gloss over is debt.

TTIP in the EU: Rejecting Democracy
Trade deals have traditionally been about lowering particular tariffs for imports and exports of goods from one country to another.

With main immigration news on being dominated by the Mediterranean boat people crisis and the masses at Calais hoping to stow away in a freight container, we forget that another way of getting somebody into the country is the sham marriage.
