Eurogeddon Postponed Termporarily Due To Financal Conjuring Tricks

by John de Roe
12 August 2011

Euroggedon has been temporarily averted again. Jean-Claude Trichet, head of the European Central Bank (ECB) has arrived Superman - like in the nick of time to save the world. There will not be a bond crisis spiralling out of control in Italy and Spain in early August after all. An imminent meltdown of Europe’s financial system has been averted. Until September.

At first glance this looks good but not great. Ultimately European bureaucrats and central banker will have to face up to the fact that the Euro (the European Single Currency) can only be saved by engineering the departure from the community of nations that make up the Eurozone. A German exit from EMU would halt the debt-deflation spiral in PIIGS countries (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Spain,) and clear the way for economic recovery to get under way.

Saying that is easy of course, getting it done is a tad more difficult. Unless the ECB is willing to embrace its new role as lender-of-last-resort by making massive purchases of dodgy looking Italian and Spanish debt, it will inevitably be tested in the financial markets. Weaker investors will use temporary rallies to offload holdings onto the ECB, i.e. onto eurozone taxpayers. Frankfurt will find itself underwater very quickly without a legal mandate or EU treaty authority.

Royal Bank of Scotland calculates that the ECB will have to buy roughly half the outstanding negotiable debt of the two countries to defend the single currency. RBS calculates €850bn. I would put it nearer €1 trillion. Unfortunately The ECB does not have any money and is acting as a temporary back-stop until the revamped EFSF bail-out fund is ratified by all parliaments over coming months.

Again that looks simple until we remember the EFSF has no money either. The parliaments of Eurozone nations have not even ratified the earlier boost to €440bn. As of today, the fund has barely €80bn left after all the commitments to Greece, Ireland, and Portugal. The rescue plan is more a fantasy novel than a plan.

As for boosting the fund further to €2 trillion or more – as suggested by Citigroup, RBS, and the European Parliament – we face a little local difficulty across the Rhine,France currently being in trouble itself, Austria being a no no because of the Micawberish eccentricities of local economics, Holland becoming more sceptical about the single currency by the day and Finland and Luxembourg the last of the Eurozone's solvent nations being tiny. With Germany the only nation capable and willing to bail out the Euro yet again, the provincial government of Bavaria, the Social Christians said they will not back one bent Pfennig for extra bail-outs, and the Angela Merkel's coalition partners in the Federal government, the FDP Free Democrats are almost of the same mood. Angela Merkel’s own Christian Democrat Union base grows more restless with every new economic problem that is announced. In any case, such an expansion of the EFSF would set off its own chain-reaction as France and then Germany lost their AAAs and plunged into the debt spiral abyss.

So, obviously markets will turn very nervous once ECB purchases approach the level that corresponds to the EFSF ceiling. They know that the ECB’s German members will fall on their swords rather than cross that line, taking the bond risk directly onto the ECB’s own balance sheet. Falling on swords could commence by the beginning of September as interest payments, become due and another trance of debt has to be refinanced. Gary Jenkins from Evolution Securities has noted that Greek yields fell from 12.43pc to 7.35pc in the week following the ECB’s first bond purchases, only to fly out of control six weeks later.

Whether buying time can solve anything depends on whether investors believe that Italy and Spain can grow their economies sufficiently quickly to break out of the debt traps they find themselves in. If we were on the cusp of a new global boom, then Italy and Spain can make it within EMU’s current structure but all the economic indicators suggest we are heading for another global recession..

If we do go into a global double-dip (defined as global growth below 2.5pc), they have no chance at all unless the ECB throws all caution to the wind, defenestrates the two German members from the top floor of the Eurotower, and embarks on a programme of Quantitative Easing that will have us all taking a wheelbarrow load of cash to buy a box of matches..

Germany might not like that prospect so despite all the talk from Bureaucrats and politicians, nothing whatsoever has been resolved by the latest plan to save the world..

Happy Days Are Here Again: Potential New Eurozone Crisis Threatens EU Recovery
The old song "Happy Days Are Here Again" comes to mind as financial news feeds report "Eurozone market wobbles, bank and sovereign jitters. Seems like deja - vu all over again as an old Hollywood tycoon is reputed to have said, or at least it seems like 2012 and 2008 all over again. Yesterday a "mild global sell-off" in the far eastern bond markets was triggered by fears that the liquidity woes at Portugal's Banco Espírito Santo "could spark another sustained bout of eurozone debt angst,"

Inhaled drug may help with sociability in autism
By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - In an early study, inhaling the hormone oxytocin appeared to encourage men with autism to make more eye contact. For the new study, researchers from the Autism Research Centre at the University of Cambridge in the UK and other European institutions compared 32 men with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or Asperger Syndrome and another 34 men without those disorders but of similar age and IQ. The video-chat software included eye tracking, which recorded how often the subject focused on the eyes, mouth or other face areas during the interviews. With placebo, men with autism focused on the interviewer's eyes less often and for less time than men without autism.

Herbalife cuts pay of CEO Johnson 36 percent after missed targets

Herbalife Ltd cut the pay of Chief Executive Michael Johnson 36 percent for 2014 after the nutrition and weight loss company failed to meet performance goals set for him and other top executives, according to a securities filing on Friday. Herbalife said Johnson, who is also chairman, received total compensation of $6.73 million last year, down from $10.5 million in 2013, mainly because he did not receive the incentive plan compensation of $3.7 million he got the prior year. Herbalife has been closely watched since activist investor William Ackman accused the company of running a pyramid scheme in 2012, while rival investor Carl Icahn became the company's biggest owner in 2013. Herbalife, being investigated by state and federal regulators, has denied Ackman's charges.

Doctors should take lead in push to curb climate change: experts

By Kyle Plantz LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Doctors should take the lead in supporting political efforts to cut the pace of climate change and encouraging more people to see the problem as a crucial issue for public health, experts say. With the 68th World Health Assembly coming up in May in Geneva, countries are poised to adopt the world's first resolution on air pollution and health, in an effort to reduce premature deaths linked to air pollution. Studies have found that air pollution can worsen a variety of health problems, from heart disease to strokes, said Carlos Dora, coordinator of public health and the environment at the World Health Organization (WHO).

Some time ago my editor-in-chief was the target of hate attacks by left wing sheeple for questioning the effectiveness of vaccines as anything but profit drivers for Big Pharma. Well Ian has thick skin so he was quite pleased to have provoked a few death threats. One of his targets howver was Dr. Offit who had famously said new born babies could have 10,000 vaccines at the same time without suffering harm. He has not fared so well, having become an object of ridicule.

Europe Fractures: France Pivots To Putin, Cyprus Offers Moscow Military Base and Germany-US Splinter On Ukraine
Yesterday’s news reports did the usual whitewash job in reporting the the Minsk Summit which aimed to thrash out a Ukraine “peace” deal. Mainstream media gives the impression that the US / EU / NATO alliance are solid in their defence of Ukraine following the CIA engineered coup last year, in reality the various parties involved appear to be flying apart faster than the fragments of shell casing from missiles exploding at they strike targets on Donetsk.

America Is Being Destroyed
A guest post today from USA based writer and poet, Vic Damico. We have written many times of the harm being done to the cultural and social structure of Western Europe's developed nations by the determination of the elites to crush true cultural diversity and replace it with a politically correct monoculture in which differences in skin colour and sexual preference replace diversity of ideas, philosophies and lifestyles.

Thanks To The Dishonest Climate Scientists, the Public Doesn’t Know Water Vapor Is Most Important Greenhouse Gas.
Yet another exposure of the lies that have propped up the scientific dishonesty and corporate greed behind the global warming scare. Climate change is real, but the climate has changed constantly for millions of years and whatever the final outcome of what is going on now is not likely to be catastrophic. Very minor changes over the last hundred years have been amplified by data manipulation and the likely effects overstated.

A Monster From The Past Wreaks Havoc - Cthulhu? Yog Sothoth? Snow?
It was a thing from the past they said, a monster from the paleo - darkness that by 2010 would be made extinct by the downside of progress and never return to afflict children growing up today. It would die because of climate change, they said, and the world would be as if it had never existed. And the Ice Dragon would be slain and disappear from ...

Putin Isolated? What about his new best mates France and Germany

The Death Of The Petrodollar Was Finally Noticed

Syriza Official Vows to Kill EU-US Trade Deal as 'Gift to All European People'

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), now facing its eighth round of talks between negotiators this week in Brussels. The TTIP, which would be the biggest trade deal ever, has been criticized as a corporate-friendly deal that threatens food and environmental safety under the guise of "harmonization" of regulations.

Paedophilia normal in human males? Is it really Professor?
Regular readers of this blog will not need to be reminded that we don’t have much time for academics. For the most part they tend to be useless individuals who couldn’t hold down jobs as shelf stackers or burger flippers were they forced to live in the real world. Due to the bizarre way our education system assess human intelligence however,

Labour's Multicultural, Utopian Paradise?
Boggart Bloggers had a good idea what the Rotherham sex abuse report, published yesterday, was going to contain for quite a while. Rotherham had long been one of the Labour flagship councils that the party's propaganda machine liked to portray as a multicultural utopian farmyard in which all the cultures were equal.

Another Conspiracy Theory Becomes Fact: Oil Collapse Is All About Obama's Proxy War With Russia.
While we are distracted with sex scandals at home and terrorists rampaging through the middle east and Africa, the US / EU / NATO confrontation with Russia / China / Iran is geting into a very dangerous state. While the Chinese led move to dump the US dollar as global reserve currency is causing economic chaos, the USA attempts to provoke armed conflict with Russia are getting more reckless and desperate.

Rotherham Scandal Spreads as Police and Local Councillors Accused of Child Abuse
As we predicted when this composite page was opened last August, after the publication of a damning report authored by Dr. Alexis Jay, on how police and municipal officials turned a blind eye to organised sex abuse in the town of Rotherham, South Yorkshire, the story of sexual perversion and corruption of local officials had a lot more secrets to yield. In the latest development ...

GM babies? How About The Frankenstein Lobby Try A Bit Of Honesty And Call It Eugenics
As the British Parliament debated legalising the use of techniques to create three parent babies and the dishonest champions of scientific fascism claim is is a perfectly safe development to remove faulty genes from humanity and in no way similar to programs with the same aim carried out in Nazi Germany, we challenge them to be honest and admit what they propose is Eugenics, a morally repugnant quest to create a master race. And all three main political parties support it.

Thatcher stopped Peter Hayman being named as paedophile-link civil servant

Obama Lubes Up And Bends Over To Service The Worst Corporate Tax Dodgers
Obama was always the corporate candidate. It is any wonder then that under his presidency, in spite of promises to redistribute wealth from rich to poor, the wealth gap between rich and poor has grown immensely wider? Is it any wonder that under his presidency the anti democracy trade deals TTIP and TPP are being pushed on the world, even though they will benefit the worst corporate tax dodgers?

Google Driverless Car Project - there are still a few snags to be ironed out
We said when it was first announced nearly a year ago that the Google driverless car was a non starter. It was not just the fact that Mercedes are miles ahead, nor Google's lack off attachment to reality. It was not the obvious (to those who have worked in the industry) tchnical problems, but the fact that people don't like giving control to machines that will scupper it. Oh and the insurance problems.

High Class Prostitutes Are Used As Bribes In Business Deals.
Shock, horror! In the wake of elitist child abuse scandals and with the trial of International Bureaucrats Dominic eight-hookers-at-a-time Strauss Kahn under way in France (he's accused of pimping) mainstream media have just discovered what an immoral and self indulgent sack of rogues the elite really are.

Medical experts furious that doctors will be paid to dole out 'risky' statins DOCTORS are set to get extra payments to hand out controversial statin drugs to patients who face a low risk of ever developing heart disease. It could mean four in 10 adults, including most of those in late middle age, are put on regular doses in a move that “medicalises” healthy people, leaving them at risk of side-effects including diabetes and memory loss.

If You Believe Mainstream Media You Probably Think Russia Is On Its Knees - WRONG!
Barack Obama, David Cameron and other western leaders have been schlepping their anti Russia schtick around the gatherings of the global elite.

The vaccine controversy erupts again as governments, politicized scientists and profit hungry corporations step up the bullying of parents about getting children vaccinated against minor illnesses or problems that will never afflict them (vaccinating boys against cervical cancer for example).

The Death Of Democracy - Lobbying For TTIP
For some years now I and my libertarian friends in the blogosphere have been warning that democracy in the west is under threat, elected governments having been infiltrated by lobbyists working for a corporate elite.

Unelected Bureaucrats Are Signing Away Our Civil Rights In Secret TTIP Negotiations

For some years now we have been warning that democracy in the west is under threat, elected governments having been infiltrated by lobbyists working for a corporate elite. These lobbyists, who have no official status but plenty of money available for 'hospitality' to help them enlist the support of corrupt officials – but more and more often these days, prominent scientists, 'special advisers' and former politicians who are happy to sell their reputation.

The NHS doctors who get cash from healthcare firms for patient referrals
An investigation revealed incentives, often worth tens of thousands of pounds, have been offered to doctors by private healthcare companies in exchange for referring patients to their hospitals.

When Politicians Don't Have A Clue How To Deal With A Problem They Pretend It Does Not Exist.
Mass Immigration, Islamification of European Societies, extremist terrorism, the creation of ghettos in western cities and widespread civil unrest. And yet the political, media and academic elities still resuse to acknowledge that their 'open door' immigration policies are causing major problems.

Regulatory Cooperation’ and TTIP: Opening The Floodgates For Corporate Plunder
A new leak concerning the talks around the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) indicates that the floodgates could be opened even further for corporate influence.

Europe won the Cold War and looked set to become the global superpower. So where did it all go wrong?
Not long after the Berlin Wall fell a quarter of a century ago, the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States squandered its peace dividend in an attempt to maintain global dominance, and Europe quietly became more prosperous, more integrated, and more of a player in international affairs. Between ...

The age of financial privacy is over
Yes you read that right. The fascist regime in the USA has usurped to itself the right to raid bank accoutns anywhere is the world. At the moment they are only stealing money by way of tax demands from people who were born on US soil even if those people have not lived in the USA since childhood and have never be employed by a US business.

Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming.
Daily Stirrer occasional contributor Graham Lear returns to one of our favourite themes, the climate change hoax, part of a program of scaremongering being engineered by enemies if freedom and democracy in the higher echelons of scoiety. This about it, who is pushing the myth of catatrophic climate change being caused by Carbon Dioxide from human activity?

Transhumanism - Elitist and Mad Scientist Collaboration To Turn Us Into Automatons.
Transhumanism: there are two definitions, the production of human animal hybrids with the aim of producing superhuman creatures and the merging of humans with machines as a shortcut to creating programmable decives with human instinct, logic and congnitive skills. Neither promises any benefit to humankind in the view of those of us who believe only the natural human being can fulfill individual potential.

From Keynesian Shangri-La To Outright War
Over the last few weeks drum beats could be heard signalling the coming of troops from abroad to lay waste to any foe ahead of them.

Everything You Need To Know About The Greek Crisis. Those people who think I have suddenly become a right wing extremist because I have been supporting UKIP's anti - EU, anti - Global Government stance and their resistance to the political mainstreams war on European cultures by be surprised to know that I was hoping for the Greek General Election to deliver a convincing victory for left-wing party Syriza.

Greece Votes On Whether Its People Have Any Future The voters of Greece will choose today, whether their country, the cradle of democracy, has a future of not. They are voting in a general election which could result in Greece trying to renegotiate the terms of its bailout with international lenders and even quitting the EU if the expected victory for hard line left wing party Syriza. The leader of Syriza, Alexis Tsipras, has pledged to write off much of Greece's huge debt and revoke austerity measures ...

Democracy: Does It have A Future Or Has Global Totalitarianism Won?
The General Election in Greece (January 2014) could have much wider effects than most elections in small nation, the vote could decide the future of the European Union and have a major breaing on whether democracy can survive the push towards government by a global, corporate oligarchy. It look like being an interesting few months if the anti - EU party wins as polls suggest they will.

People Are Waking Up To The Fact That The European Union Is On The Fast Track To Fascism.
Greece has a General Election and it looks as if the anti - EU, extreme left Syriza party will win comfortably. In previous elections that went against the Euronazis in Brussels, the democracy hating bureaucrats simply told the sovereign government of the member nation that the vote was not acceptable. If their try to overturn the Greek result in the same way it will trigger massive civil unrest.

German Anti-Islamisation Marches: What the Mainstream Media Doesn’t Want You to Know
For people who rely for news on mainstream media, what is increasingly known in Germany as the ‘liar press’ (Luegenpresse), the narrative that the racist, anti Islam protestors have turned nasty might stick. And when the reports throw in salacious details about the former leader of this movement and his colourful past, or the tragic death of an immigrant man who was killed shortly after a demonstration in Dresden last week, the pro immigrant propaganda starts to look like the voice of reason.

So Who's Making Up Innuendos About Leon Brittan
The rumor mill has gone to warp speed following the death of alleged dossier - shredder Leon Brittan. Bizarrely his friend Lord Deben seems to think the various allegations raging from Brittan's role in covering up the activities of a Westminster paedophile ring, to his actual involvement in sexual abuse of children only originated recently.

The Death Of Democracy - Are The Elites Running Scared From Public Opinion
When did democracy go out of fashion. I don't remember voting on whether we wanted to give up our civil liberties or be ruled by a dictatorship of unelected bureaucrats from Brussels, but that is where we are heading, along with the other free nations of Europe. And the USA, so-called land of the free is further along the road to fascism than Europe.

Google’s Eric Schmidt Greases Skids For Internet Brain Chip Google CEO Eric Schmidt greased the skids for an Internet brain chip during a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland earlier today when he predicted the end of the world wide web as an external concept.

Why the war on CO2 has done far more harm than good
Warmageddonists send a lot of time screeching and scaremongering about the potpentially catastrophic outcomes of increased atmospheric CO2 levels, exaggerating their claims wildly in order to frighten people into supporting their war on the oil and coal industries. Policies formulated to tackle the imaginary threat of anthropogenic climate change have ...

Researchers Discover How to Use Living Plants to Generate Electricity.
Most of the hyped green energy solutions to generate electricity from wind or sunshine are so obviously flawed the only thing that makes them economically viable is that governments offer huge subsidies to generators. This in turn makes the sustainables so expensive that consumers cannot afford the intermittent energy they produce.

Je Suis Saussice (in defence of your right to eat pork sausages)
Just as we showed solidarity with the publishers of Charlie Hebdo magazine after twelve staff were murdered by religious extremists and defended the right of citizens in democratic nations to criticize religion by saying "Je Suis Charlie" so we are now making a stand in support of the freedom to eat sausages (which is an abomination to Allah apparently,) by saying "Je Suis Saussice".

Trade Treaties Fast Track Not A Done Deal, The People Will Stop It
The fast tracking of two trade treaties, TTIP and TPP that the corporate gofor, President Barack Hussein Obama, is pushing in the hope that the deals, will enable him to complete the task he was shoehorned into office for by transferring control of national laws from elected governments to corporate lawyers, looks to be stalling.

Prescription painkillers’ overuse has become ‘silent epidemic’ in USA, UK and Europe.

More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality

We’re told this week that Washington’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center (NOAA) had finally crunched its numbers for 2014, and Al Gore is a very happy man, as are the armies of amateur climate experts who take government scientific announcements as gospel.

Could 'DNA editing' lead to designer babies? Designer babies, human / animal hybrids, these things have been in wet dream territory for scientists for a long time. But now due to techniques such as DNA editing, they are getting worryingly close to reality. And as has been demonstrated many times, scientists have zero uderstanding of where the ethical boundaries lie.

We said 2014 was the warmest year on record… but we’re only 38% sure we were right - NASA
Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all. Does that mean 97% of climate experts are 62% sure they are wrong? The thing with half-truths is that they generate a glorious fog, but it has no substance. Ask of the spin-cloud a couple of sensible questions and the narrative collapses.

More Global Warming Hot Air, As Climate Fundamentalists Continue Inflating a False Reality

Believe The Phoney Narrative Or Be Branded a Conspiracy Theorist.
Right now the west is in big trouble, the move led by Russia and China to dump the petrodollar as global currency has provoked the Americans to lead the wesern allies into an economic war that we cannot win. Why not? One word: debt. A shooting war is the only option but it's by no means certain the allies would win that.

Seventy Years Down The Line And We Have Come Back To Appeasement As A Means To Peace.
As a spate of increasingly bloody and violent attacks on civilized values and the democratif freedoms of the western nations (free speech for example) continues to cause revulsion among the general population, our spineless leader are calling on us to be tolerant.

Russia throws down the gauntlet: energy supply to Europe cut off; petrodollar abandoned as currency war escalates
There are some big moves taking place on the global stage that you need to know about, as this could all lead to World War III. Yesterday Russia cut off its natural gas supply to Europe, "plunging the continent into an energy crisis 'within hours' as a dispute with Ukraine escalated," the Daily Mail reported. "This morning, gas companies in Ukraine said that Russia had completely cut off their supply. Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of ...

Europe’s Intensifying Immigration Debate
In an absolutely gobsmacking psychological meltdown and an unparalleled display of bourgeois self hate, the former Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt demonstrated how wide the gap between the political and academic elite and reality has become in the materially advanced democracies.

‘Uncaged Corporate Parrots’ Of The Political Elite and The GMO False Narrative
The Environment Secretary in the UK Coalition Government, Elizabeth Truss has argued that genetically modified (GM) food should be grown in Britain because it is more ‘eco-friendly’. She adds that steps should be taken to speed up this development. Her statements come as little surprise to many because Truss’s predecessor, Owen Paterson, was also a staunch supporter of GM technology.

Earth’s CO2 Levels Pass Global Warming ‘Milestone', Nothing Happens - Daily Caller.
After two decades of panic stricken scientists and screeching lefties wailing about the catatrophe that would ensue once the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere passed 400 parts per million, that figure was reached in December 2014. No islands sank, no ice caps disappeared, no cities were incinerated. Which is pretty much what those of us who recognize the science of scaremongering when we see it predicted would happen.

Who’s a Charlie? France cracks down on free speech in order to defend it
In grim and supreme irony, French police have fanned out to suppress free speech in order to defend it.“France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses” since last week, the Associated Press reports.

Labour's Cockfish Reveals How Mainfesto Will Piss You Off.
All three main parties in the UK General Election are campaigning from a Politically Correct Consensus (i.e. Control Freak) platform. But whenm it comes to politically correct control freakery, Labour will always outdo the others. The main early thut of their campaign is a promise to criminalise sugary snacks and breakfast cereals, fatty foods and some fizzy drinks. And they're serious, they have handed the job of selling this idiocy to The Cockfish of British politics.

Charlie Hebdo: No Wonder There Are Conspiracy Theories

Economist: World Leaders Will Exploit Charlie Hebdo to Eliminate Internet Privacy
Economist Martin Armstrong warns that the twin attacks in France will be used by world leaders to push for restrictions on Internet privacy and the total elimination of encrypted communications.

Oxford University Bans All Things Pig Related In Support Of Free Speech
When does being reasonable and open minded become cowardice? When academics who pride themselves on intellectual detachment cave in to threats from extremists and try to pass off their pitiful weakness by pretending they are showing sensitivity to the feelings of minorities.

While the world has been looking the other way, Boko Haram has been conquering Nigeria
One story that has slipped away from us recently as we have tried to bring you a fair and balanced view of the Ched Evans With Hunt, the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack, ships full of migrants abandoned in The Adriatic and the collapse of the Petrodollar amongs other catastrophe's that have happened, are happening or are waiting to happen, has been the progress of the Boko Haram rebellion in Nigeria.

Insane Science Pushing The Earth Towards Ecocide. At the Daily Stirrer we have suspected it for a log time, science is insane, a game for the ethically challenged and sociopathic to compete to be first to develop a new plague, or a death ray, or to trash the enviromnent in pursuit of political power or corporate profits for their paymasters. There's even a name for what they are doing now, Ecocide.

A Republic Always Decays Into Oligarchy. Here's Why
Almost a rehash of Schumpeter's warning, that capital alwaysd contains the seeds of its own destruction while socialism always leads to fascism. I guess the old Austrian economist was trying to tel us the only thing that works is chaos. I can live with that.

France sees dozens of anti-Muslim incidents.
No doubt our leaders and the media will condemn the backlash from ordinary French people to the Charlie Hebdo massacre. Random attacks on decent Muslims are wrong. but how long do the elites expect us to keep showing tolerance when they have done nothing about a long standing problem.

The Debt Ponzi Deconstructed
Most of us are familiar with the concept of GDP as a measure of economic health. If GDP increases, the myth goes, then the economy has grown. It is a measure of how effectively or efficiently we are utilizing our assets to generate wealth. The idea is that the more I invest the more notional returns I can generate. Unfortunately GDP is a false economic measure, it only measures the rate at which money churns around the economic system.

In The War On Terror, Freedom Is Not Winning While we would like to write about more positive things, protecting democracy and free speech, guiding people towards healthy lifestyles, how we the punters can save the planet (especially from the idiocies of the Warmageddonist lobby) and so on, we find far too much of our time is spent trying to get the truth about important issues in front of readers. Mainstream media has abandoned news reporting in favour of simply repeating government and corporate propaganda. Terrorism is one issue on which you will only finds out facts from new media.

Why Iceland Recovery Is Being Ignored In Mainstream News
Iceland is a small country with less that half a million people so is not a good comparison with Britain. It's recovery from near bankruptcy in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis however is due to the rejection of politically correct, globalist politics so in that light it serves to illustrate that to suggest Britain (60 million people) cannot survive outside the EU is just globalist scaremongering.

The Strange Case Of The Footballer And The Witch Hunt.
In 2011 Sheffied United footballer Ched Evans was jailed for rape, a crime he has always insisted he did not commit. Now Evans is out, having served only helf his sentence.

Merkel Agrees That Immigrants Abuse EU Welfare Systems
In a surprise statement German Chancellor Angela Merkel has agreed with Prime minister David Cameron that there is an urgent need to address the “abuses” of Britain’s benefits system by immigrants.

The Euro Is Closer To Collapse Than Anyone Cares To Admit.
A victory for the anti EU Syriza Party in the Greek elections later this month would lead to a Greek default on its massive sovereign debts. This in turn would mean Greece would have to quit the EU. And that would have massive repercussions for the major European economies and probably precipitate a global economic crisis (like the ongoing global depression isn't enough).
