The Islamization Of Germany In 2016: "We Are No Longer Safe"

Mass migration from the Muslim world is fast-tracking the Islamization of Germany, as evidenced by the proliferation of no-go zones, Sharia courts, polygamy and child marriages. Mass migration has also been responsible for a host of social disruptions, including jihadist attacks, a migrant rape epidemic, a public health crisis, rising crime and a rush by German citizens to purchase weapons for self-defense — and even to abandon Germany altogether.

Morgan Stanley Reflects On The Lessons From 2016

"The biggest surprises in 2016 were clearly political – notably Brexit and the US presidential election. As a result, we will be keeping a close eye on political developments in 2017, notably in Europe, where not just Germany, France and Italy are heading to the polls in 2017, but also the Netherlands and possibly also Greece."

This is what it comes down to: There was a credit explosion to the benefit of banks and the wealthy once Nixon closed the gold window. At that point, governments could print at will, and they did. Central bank policy cannot fix structural problems, only the free market can. And that includes a truly free market in money as well.

Damaging The Deep State: Trump, Russia, And China

It has become clear Trump's attitude towards Russia and China is very different from that of his predecessors.
