How George Soros Singlehandedly Created The European Refugee Crisis - And Why

In 2015, a Sky News reporter found “Migrant Handbooks” on the Greek island of Lesbos. It was later revealed that the handbooks, which are written in Arabic, had been given to refugees before crossing the Mediterranean by a group called “Welcome to the EU.” Welcome to the EU is funded by—you guessed it—George Soros' Open Society Foundations. Soros has not only backed groups that advocate the resettlement of third-world migrants into Europe, he in fact is the architect of the “Merkel Plan.”

Can The EU Survive As A Prison? Who Has The Keys?

Jean-Claude Juncker and Angela Merkel want to make the EU a prison. The Eurozone was designed as a prison from the beginning. But the cat is finally out of the bag. And voters know they have the key.

Czech President Calls For EU, NATO Referendums

“I disagree with those who are for leaving the European Union,” Czech Radio quoted Zeman as saying on Thursday evening, according to Reuters. "But I will do everything for them to have a referendum and be able to express themselves. And the same goes for a NATO exit too."

Juncker Refuses To Speak English In Address To EU Parliament

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker didn't speak English Tuesday as he lamented the U.K.'s departure from the bloc. Juncker's official speech to EU lawmakers was made only in French and German. He did, however, respond to hecklers among the British EU lawmakers in English. Previously, Juncker has often used the EU's most widely spoken and written language as well, particularly when addressing issues close to British hearts.

EU Officials To Unveil 'Ultimatum' Blueprint As Final Solution For European Super-State

It appears The Brits dodged more than a migration bullet in their decision to leave The EU. French and German officials are reportedly due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an "ultimatum," with a shockingly predictable final solution to Europe's Brexit-driven existential crisis to morph the continent’s countries into one giant superstate.

Greeks Send An Open Letter To UK Citizens About Brexit

Dear friends of democracy in the UK,

We want to express our solidarity as we know that you have to take a historical decision for your country and for your people, as we did last summer. On 23rd June 2016 you will have to decide in a referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union. A referendum is a direct democratic element, the highest expression of the peoples will, a privilege and a rare opportunity in the European Union.  You have now the historical chance to mark your national independence day and stop the further transformation of Europe into a European dictatorship.

"Deliberately Overblown" Brexit Fears Backfire

As the June 23rd BREXIT (the UK-wide referendum to leave the EU) vote draws near, the polls indicate a close result. Those urging a vote for the UK to remain inside the EU are suggesting increasingly dire economic consequences that would follow a yes vote by the British people to leave. Voices from London, Brussels, and Washington have all put immense pressure on British voters to bend to the will of the elites. To listen to their commentary one would think that apocalypse was just around the corner. But is there any substance to their warnings?

Mizuho CEO Warns Japan Sales Tax Delay Is "Admission Abenomics Has Failed"

Yasuhiro Sato, president of Mizuho, Japan's second-largest bank by assets, said Abe's framing of the sales tax delay would determine whether it sparked concerns about the government's credibility regarding its plans for fiscal consolidation. "The worst scenario is [the government] will just announce a delay in the tax increase.  That could send a message that Abenomics has failed or Japan is heading for a fiscal danger zone and then it will harm Japanese government bonds' credit ratings."

The EU's Kiss Of Death

In the face of such resistance from member states, the European Commission's plan to penalize them for not accepting "their share" of migrants could not possibly be more ill-timed and out of touch. It comes across as a desperate attempt by the EU's executive body to force its way of handling the migrant crisis onto disobedient EU member states, like an authoritarian parent disciplining its unruly children. There is, however, such a thing as bending something until it snaps. By persisting in pushing their agendas on EU member states that still consider themselves sovereign and not merely provinces of the European Union, Timmermans and his European Commission bureaucrats may just have given the European Union its kiss of death.

What Wall Street Expects From Today's Payrolls Report And How To Trade It

In what may be one of the least relevant payroll reports in a long time as the Fed already knows the labor market is doing better quantiatively (qualitatively it has been all about low-paying jobs gaining at the expense of higher paying manufacturing and info-tech positions) and as has further demonstrated it is no longer jobs data dependent, here is what Wall Street consensus expects: total payrolls +200,000, down from 215K in March; a 4.9% unemployment rate; average hourly earnings rising 0.3% (last 0.3%) M/M and 2.4% Y/Y (last 2.3%); on labor force participation of 63%.
