UK Joins U.S. Bombing ISIL, Courting Danger / Politics / War on Terror

By: John_Browne

On September 26th, the English Parliament voted to join the U.S.-led bombing of ISIL, at least in Iraq. The news was received with relief by most in the Anglosphere world and throughout Europe. However, very little regard has been paid to the relative benefits and costs. The military actions that the UK has committed herself to conduct will have a low probability of achieving the stated objective of "degrading and destroying" ISIL. However, there is a much higher likelihood that air strikes from the UK will increase ISIL's stated objective of projecting fear and terrorism deeper into the West. If that were to occur, the resulting implications for business will be difficult to project.

Germany Fights on Two Fronts to Preserve the Eurozone / Politics / Germany

By: STRATFOR

The European Court of Justice announced Sept. 22 that hearings in the case against the European Central Bank's (ECB) bond-buying scheme known as Outright Monetary Transactions (OMT) will begin Oct. 14. Though the process is likely to be lengthy, with a judgment not due until mid-2015, the ruling will have serious implications for Germany's relationship with the rest of the eurozone. The timing could hardly be worse, coming as an anti-euro party has recently been making strides in the German political scene, steadily undermining the government's room for maneuver.

The End of Monetary Policy / Politics / Global Financial System

By: John_Mauldin

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar…

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

–  T. S. Eliot, “The Hollow Men”

Ron Paul - Scottish Referendum Gives the People Reasons to be Hopeful / Politics / Social Issues

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Even though it ultimately failed at the ballot box, the recent campaign for Scottish independence should cheer supporters of the numerous secession movements springing up around the globe.

In the weeks leading up to the referendum, it appeared that the people of Scotland were poised to vote to secede from the United Kingdom. Defeating the referendum required British political elites to co-opt secession forces by promising greater self-rule for Scotland, as well as launching a massive campaign to convince the Scots that secession would plunge them into economic depression.

Nihilism And The Unknown Future / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Reject Everything
Nihilism, as US president Obama said in August 2014 following the decapitation of journalist Jim Foley is most certainly ISIS in Syria and Iraq  - but he called it an ideology, when in fact it is a non-ideology. Nihilism denies all “conventional knowledge” and “conventional reality”. The only possible future, the nihilists say, will be “exalted” or “ecstatic”. Otherwise, there is no future.

Nihilism is the path to nowhere for the punk killers of ISIS who meander from town to town and cut off human heads in town squares, to thrill the crowd here and there, but nothing more than that. Until the “ecstatic moment”, life will be a shadow play, for ISIS of a threatening and macabre type.

The US Has No Banking Regulation, And It Doesn’t Want Any / Politics / Market Regulation

By: Raul_I_Meijer

It is, let’s say, exceedingly peculiar to begin with that a government – in this case the American one, but that’s just one example -, in name of its people tasks a private institution with regulating not just any sector of its economy, but the richest and most politically powerful sector in the nation. Which also happens to be at least one of the major forces behind its latest, and ongoing, economical crisis.

UK Saved From I.S. Threat But Scottish Independence Nightmare is Not Over! / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

A week on from when the UK managed to avoid having an I.S. (Independent Scotland) failed state on its northern border, the creation of which would have been literally cataclysmic as an I.S. would have ripped the whole of Britain apart, North, South, East and West as once states start to unravel then events soon gather a momentum of their own where what was thought as unimaginable barely a few months earlier would start to become manifest.

The YES Campaigns victory was achieved by means of Westminister politicians LYING to the Scottish electorate by making promises of bribes that amount to effectively INCREASING Scotland's annual net subsidy from England by 50% as the price to be paid by English workers despite having had no say in the matter.

U.S. Aggression - Will Russia and China Hold Their Fire? / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Obama’s September 24 speech at the UN is the most absurd thing I have heard in my entire life. It is absolutely amazing that the president of the United States would stand before the entire world and tell what everyone knows are blatant lies while simultaneously demonstrating Washington’s double standards and belief that Washington alone, because the US is exceptional and indispensable, has the right to violate all law.

It is even more amazing that every person present did not get up and walk out of the assembly.

The diplomats of the world actually sat there and listened to blatant lies from the world’s worst terrorist. They even clapped their approval.

War on ISIS, Imperial Crusade #989 / Politics / War on Terror

By: LewRockwell

Eric Margolis writes: Having nearly provoked war over Ukraine with nuclear-armed Russia, the Obama administration has now launched a full-scale crusade in Iraq and Syria against the evil Saracens of ISIS.

America’s aerial might, including B-1 heavy bombers, is plastering ISIS miscreants. Washington’s Arab allies and rightwing governments in Canada and Australia have joined the fray. The British will be next.

Throughout the continent, public support for a united Europe fell sharply last year. Opposition to greater integration has emerged, with anti-EU parties gaining support in countries as diverse as the United Kingdom, Greece, Germany and France.

Darwin And The Climate Apocalypse / Politics / Climate Change

By: Andrew_McKillop

We All Have to Die
In 2006, Britain's leading exponent of climate change doom, Sir James Lovelock said: “Billions will die from global warming before the end of the century”, perhaps a third of the whole human race.

He calmed down later on, but well over 98% of all known and documented species that ever existed are now extinct. One of Darwin's own musings was that he thought humans should marvel at the wonders of an average beetle rather than the structure of the Universe, because since the late Ordovician geological era beetles and other insects have managed to hang in and hold on. His theory of survival of the fittest in fact concerns the fantastic loss over time of nearly all living things on this planet.

Can Money Save The Climate? / Politics / Climate Change

By: Raul_I_Meijer

So PIMCO was going to fire Bill Gross over the weekend, and he chose to leave on his own accord and work for Janus. So what? Gross is 70 years old and still joins another firm geared towards making money, and nothing else at all. As if making money, and nothing else, is a valid goal in a human life.

As if someone who’s done nothing else his entire life, and who’s richer than Croesus, should have nothing else to do with the times that remains him, and is somehow right and justified about not being able to find anything more worthwhile.

By: Andrew_McKillop

The Killing of Herve Gourdel
At the UN General Assembly, 24 September, French president Francois Hollande condemned the killing in Algeria of a French hostage, by terrorists claiming they are now part of the Islamic State and have abandoned al Qaeda. Their message to France by Internet was titled a 'Message in Blood for the French Government'. French journalists and terror experts suggested that a ransom demand of several million euros had been rejected at the “highest levels of the state”, by Francois Hollande.

Why Turkey Must Tread Carefully Against Islamic State / Politics / Turkey

By: STRATFOR

As the United States begins its full assault against the Islamic State in Syria, backed by Arab allies, the absence of NATO ally Turkey is drawing attention and comment. Just days before the Sept. 22 beginning of U.S. airstrikes, Turkey managed to broker a deal with the Islamic State to return 49 diplomats held in Iraq for 101 days. Contrary to diplomatic and media speculation, however, Turkey is not supporting the transnational, Syria- and Iraq-based jihadist movement known as the Islamic State.

Shah Gilani writes: There's a new twist in an ongoing U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) probe.

For months now, the SEC has been investigating whether anyone in the federal government leaked inside information to a Washington-based investment research firm.

While that was pretty juicy already, those investigators are now looking at up to 44 hedge funds that may have traded on that inside information.

Home Healthcare Cuts Threaten 500,000 Jobs and Female-Owned Businesses / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By Dennis Miller

That title wouldn’t make for much of a campaign slogan, and yet, it’s the natural outcome of one particular politician’s promise. As the editor of a retirement-focused newsletter, most of the notes I receive about the Affordable Health Care Act, or Obamacare, are first-person accounts of how a reader’s change in coverage or cost is affecting his finances. These (mostly sad) stories prompted several discussions with Andy Mangione, vice president of government relations of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC). Andy serves as the lead legislative and government contact for AMAC in Washington, DC. He’s also responsible for national grassroots outreach and developing strategic partnerships.

Bread, Circuses and Bombs - Decline of The American Empire / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

"Already long ago, from when we sold our vote to no man, the People have abdicated our duties; for the People who once upon a time handed out military command, high civil office, legions -- everything, now restrains itself and anxiously hopes for just two things: Bread and Circuses." - Juvenal - Satire (100 A.D.)

Roman satirist and poet Juvenal was displaying contempt for a degraded Roman citizenry that had shunned civic responsibility, shirked their duties of citizenship within a republic, and had chosen to sell their votes to feckless politicians for assurances of bread and circuses. Rather than govern according to noble principles based upon reason, striving for public policies that led to long term sustainability and benefitting the majority of citizens, politicians chose superficial displays and appeasing the masses utilizing the lowest common denominator of "free" food and bountiful spectacles, pageants, and ceremonies in order to retain power.
