It's coming to the US next.
Ahead Of Boris Johnson's Key Sunday Night Announcement, Here Is What British Politicians Think Of The ReferendumSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 02/20/2016 18:03 -0400
With the date of UK's EU referendum now set for late June, both side are nervously awaiting the verdict of the mayor of London, who, the Observer understands, intends to make a statement on Sunday night on which side he will back. If both Gove and Johnson, two of the best communicators in Tory ranks, side with the Out campaign, many MPs believe the prime minister will face an uphill struggle to convince voters that their best interests lay in remaining inside the EU.
"If the Unites States is really Turkey's friend and ally, then they should recognize the PYD — a Syrian branch of the PKK — as a terrorist organization. If a friend acts as an enemy, then measures should be taken, and they will not be limited to the Incirlik Airbase, Turkey has significant capabilities,"
Brunner and Brandberg maintain that the tendency in the EU and in OECD member countries is to “weaken individual liberties” and to exercise greater control over citizens. In this context "cash is comparable to the service firearm kept by Swiss citizen soldiers," the pair argued in their motion, saying they both “guarantee freedom.” The move toward electronic payments allows governments "total surveillance" over individuals, the pair claim.

"The takeaway message from New Hampshire is powerful but not new. Voters in Greece have rejected establishment parties – twice. Voters in Portugal recently rejected the establishment. Voters in Iceland did so years ago and their nation is now thriving. So what's behind all of this rejection? I reckon it's because you can only push people so far. As Popeye the Sailor is famous for saying, "That's all I can stands, I can't stands no more.""
In 2008, almost every major U.S. bank was on the edge of bankruptcy. But if the feds succeed in cutting us off from cash, that will never happen again. Because the banks will just whack us all – with the full approval of the Fed, the cronies in Congress, and zombies everywhere – to make themselves whole again. If this new campaign succeeds, it will be almost impossible to protect yourself.
So let's get this straight. Russia and OPEC 'agree' to consider (not actually act upon) "freezing" production levels (at current record high levels) and the market plunges amid disappointment over no cuts. And today WTI spikes and erases all those losses as Iran supports the "freeze" plan but will not cut its own production plans...
The next time the victor of a US presidential race system says that he or she will destabilize a foreign government or wage a war against a foreign country in order to 'fight for democracy', the entire world, led most of all by the voters of the United States, should greet the news with a hearty laugh.
Turkey Fires On Syrian Army, Kurds, Says "Massive Escalation" In Syria Imminent As Saudis Ready AirstrikesSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 02/14/2016 00:36 -0400
It's do or die time for Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Qatar as Russia and Hezbollah are set to rout the Syrian opposition at Aleppo. In what very well may be a prelude to world war, the Saudis have sent warplanes to Turkey's Incirlik airbase while Ankara has begun shelling the Kurds in Aleppo on the way to promising a "massive escalation" within 24 hours.
Economists keep claiming economic recovery fulfilled, and yet it is found nowhere other than the BLS... and it is certainly not the view of funding and credit markets. In answering why economists and policymakers would throw out the vast and growing volume of especially market-based contradictions to their preferred labor view, we only have to note that this is an existential question for them.
"A newspaper is a device for making the ignorant more ignorant and the crazy crazier." If you really want to know how weak Hillary Clinton is as a candidate, you merely have to appreciate that the U.S. media essentially acts as her own personal PR firm, yet the public still recognizes her as a dishonest crook. Brace yourself for the following story, it’s huge.
Disgruntled employee (maybe he was mad that the kingdom rolled back fuel subsidies) or excuse to invade Syria? We'll see.
