NATO: Worse Than "Obsolete" - It's A Crony Capitalist's Dream





NATO isn’t just an expensive luxury of the sort we can no longer afford – it is a tripwire that could be set off by a minor border conflict involving Moldova, the status of Kaliningrad, or – more likely – another round of hostilities in Ukraine. Would we start World War III in defense of the oligarchs of Kiev? I wouldn’t put it past them. With his plan – or, rather, inclination – to abandon the old NATO and replace it with some sort of multilateral counterterrorist operation, and his insistence that our “allies” pay up, Trump is forcing an issue onto the stage that hasn’t been seen since the days of Bob Taft.

Europe Continues To Court "Prince In Brussels" Erdogan





Erdogan has boasted that he is proud of boldly blackmailing EU leaders into paying him protection money. The nightmare scenario for a desperate EU is that no matter how much it bows to extortionist demands from Turkey, the migrant crisis will continue to grow.

EU, Turkey Strike Migrant Deal; Erdogan Gets €6 Billion





The migrant crisis is over and Europe is fixed. Turkish PM Ahmet Davutoglu was in Brussels on Friday in an effort to hammer out a deal with EU officials that will help stem the flow of asylum seekers into Western Europe. As it turns out, eurocrats aren't very good at negotiating with an autocrat's messenger, which is why Europe came away with a set of promises that are impossible to enforce and Erdogan got €6 billion plus accelerated EU membership.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's bullying isn’t confined to his domestic political agenda.

Trader Psychology Is Reversing, Scotiabank Warns Market Is "Ripe For Volatility Spikes"





Market psychology established in recent years is reversing. Market volatility is rising and will remain pervasive for a while as psychology, the change in direction of Fed policy, and the increases in general uncertainties, will all conspire to shape an environment ripe for sharp spikes in volatility which will be further amplified by rickety market liquidity.

15 News Stories From 2015 You Should Have Heard About But Probably Didn't





In 2015, the iron fist of power clamped down on humanity, from warfare to terrorism to surveillance, police brutality, and corporate hegemony. The environment was repeatedly decimated, the health of citizens was constantly put at risk, and the justice system and media alike were perverted to serve the interests of the powers that be. However, while 2015 was discouraging for more reasons than most of us can count, many of the year’s most underreported stories evidence not only a widespread pattern that explicitly reveals the nature of power, but pushback from human beings worldwide on a path toward a better world.

The system is beyond the point where it is merely showing stresses and fractures. Things are now falling apart and there may well be no way of putting them back together again.

Visualizing The Greatest Economic Collapses In History





The very first major economic collapse in recorded history occurred in 218-202 BC when the Roman Empire experienced money troubles after the Second Punic War. As a result, bronze and silver currencies were devalued. As HowMuch.net depicts in the video below economic collapses date back thousands of years. While many countries today still feel the effects of the most recent Global Financial Crisis, it is important to note that economic troubles are not unique to the present-day, but rather date back to some of the oldest civilizations.
