Merkel Says Europe Is In "Critical Situation"

"We need solutions for Europe and we are in a critical situation," Merkel said as she arrived at the gathering. "You can't solve all Europe's problems in one summit. What we have to do is show in our deeds we can do things better in the realms of security and fighting terrorism, and in the field of defense."

Luxembourg Wants To Kick Hungary Out Of Europe For Its "Inhuman" Treatment Of Refugees

“Anyone who, like Hungary, builds fences against refugees from war or who violates press freedom and judicial independence should be excluded temporarily, or if necessary for ever, from the EU,” Luxembourg FM Asselborn said.

George Soros Warns Europe: Accept Refugees Or Face Extinction

The refugee crisis and the Brexit calamity that it spawned have reinforced xenophobic, nationalist movements that will seek to win a series of upcoming votes. Rather than uniting to resist this threat, EU member states have become increasingly unwilling to cooperate with one another. They pursue self-serving, beggar-thy-neighbor migration policies – such as building border fences – that further fragment the Union, seriously damage member states, and subvert global human-rights standards.

The Disturbing Signs Of Global Conflict Continue To Gather Pace

The signs are ominous, the rhetoric constant. Whichever way you look at it, the world is slowly descending into an ever greater spiral of conflict. We all know that the current wars raging in the Middle East have the potential to go catastrophically wrong and pull the super-powers into something much bigger. You also know things are not good when the so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ from alternative media outlets eventually go mainstream...

Dear Angela, Your Refugee Crisis Is Back

To make changes in the EU, 28 nations all have to agree. Thus, it takes years to negotiate treaties, in the best case scenario. In regards to the refugee crisis, a number of countries have essentially to her highness, Angela Merkel “Go to hell”.

Retired Green Beret Warns: "World Governments Are Preparing For Disaster And War"

"...the world’s economies are cascading, there is civil unrest throughout Europe, civil unrest is developing in the United States, the U.S. government and the nations’ governments are preparing for disaster and war, and powder-kegs exist in Syria, Ukraine, and with North Korea that can be touched off at any time..."

Nigel Farage Warns "The Establishment Is Losing Control Over The People"

"Hillary represents everything that has gone wrong in our lives over the last couple of decades...she sees the European Union as a prototype for an even bigger form of world government...what we’ve done is given inspiration to freedom fighters right across the Western World."

"All Eyes On Central Banks" In September, But "No Reason To Smile"

September will be quite a busy month for investors since there are around 30 major central banks meetings scheduled. Since the Bank of England’s last policy announcement, the total monthly amount in global official quantitative easing has reached almost $200 billion, which corresponds, for the purpose of comparison, to Portugal’s annual GDP in 2015. Long-rumoured and oft-discussed, QE infinity is now a reality.

Hungarian Politician Slammed For Suggesting Pig's Heads Along Border To Stop Immigrants

In an effort to ward off immigrants, Hungary had placed eerie 'scarecrow-like' masks - fashioned from vegetables - along its border fence. Responding to remarks that "your root vegetable heads will not deter them," Hungarian politician (and MEP) Gyorgy Schopflin, snapped back that he agreed, adding that "pig’s heads would deter more effectively." His comments were not well met...

Migrant Problems Still Threaten Europe

The picture drawn by the present migration into Europe may fundamentally undermine the "Refugees Welcome" narrative that dominated news reports last year, but the continent-wide economic ramifications of its effects on a country such as Italy, already subject to considerable political tumult, should not be underestimated.

Multipolar World Order: Economics Vs. Politics

The transition from a unipolar to a multipolar reality has already changed many aspects of international relations. A revolution that will change everything like nothing in recent history is taking place, forever altering the delicate balance upon which international relations hitherto rested.

Rethinking The Cold War... And The New One

The new Cold War is far more dangerous than the old, because the respective war doctrines of the nuclear powers have changed. The function of nuclear weapons is no longer retaliatory. Mutually Assured Destruction was a guarantee that the weapons would not be used. In the new war doctrine nuclear weapons have been elevated to first-use in a preemptive nuclear attack. Washington first took this step, forcing Russia and China to follow.

The Birth Of Cultural Marxism: How The "Frankfurt School" Changed America

 The 1950s were a simple, romantic, and golden time in America. The nation stood atop the world in every field. It was an era of great economic prosperity in The Land of the Free. So, what happened to the American traits of confidence, pride, and accountability? The roots of Western cultural decay are very deep, having first sprouted a century ago. It began with a loose clan of ideologues inside Europe’s communist movement. Today, it is known as the Frankfurt School, and its ideals have perverted American society.
