Lagarde Flip-Flops Again On Brexit, Warns Of "Disastrous" Trump-Style Protectionism

Ahead of the vote on Brexit, IMF head Christine Lagarde warned of a prolonged period of uncertainty. After the vote, Largarde said Brexit provided the EU a better opportunity for reform. Today Largarde is certain of disastrous consequences if another large county turns protectionist. In doing so, she pointed her finger at Donald Trump.

How To Spot A False Flag Event

It's time for those of us who have been reluctant to consider the possibility that our own government could actually be complicit in domestic terrorism in order to further a nefarious agenda to at least stop accepting the government and media’s version of these tragedies at face value. For the most part, the mainstream media is little more than a propaganda ministry for the federal government.

Brexit: Here Are The Latest Known Unknowns

When will Article 50 be triggered? Will it ever be triggered? Will there ever actually be a Brexit? Who is the next Conservative leader? Will there be a snap general election? On any negotiations will Europe play hard ball or compromise? Elsewhere will Italy lose the senate reform referendum in October and could Italy have an EU referendum after a fresh election? And will the French elections next year be another spoke in the wheel for Europe?

The Accusations Begin: David Cameron Blames Brexit On Merkel And EU "Immigration Failure"

David Cameron told European leaders he lost the EU referendum because they failed to address public concerns over immigration, as tensions rose ahead of looming Brexit negotiations. The British PM said that fears of mass immigration were "a driving factor" behind the vote and free movement would have to be addressed in Brexit talks. He was mostly referring to Angela Merkel who blocked British demands before the referendum for an "emergency brake" on migrant numbers.

10 Ways The UK Could Leave The EU

Stalemate between Britain and the European Union over what happens next following Britons' referendum vote to leave has opened up a host of possible scenarios. Here are some that are (in some cases, barely) conceivable...

UBS CIO Warns "The Status Quo Is Over... Get Used To It"

"The status quo in Europe is over. We will have to get used to this. Political risk has risen, and we will be dependent on central bank interventions, the calmness of markets, and measured political decision-making to keep the world's economic growth momentum and thus support risk assets."

Calls For Texas Independence Surge After Brexit Vote

The use of "Texit" exploded when the Brexit results were announced, as more than 5,800 people on Twitter used the phrase, a five-fold increase from the day before. 1,745 people tweeted about Texit between 7am - 8am London time, the hour when the final results were announced.

First The UK, Then Scotland... Then Texas?

That didn't take long. Only hours after the final results came in for a British exit from the EU, political leaders in Scotland are talking about renewing their drive to secede from the United Kingdom. While secession of American states is often dismissed as absurd, there are few reasons to believe that a state like Texas - to name just one example - could not immediately transition from state to nation-state. With a large economy, port cities, oil, and easy access to European, Latin American, and even Asian economies by sea, economics arguments against such a separation fall flat.

The European Union: Government By Deception

The benefits of the union flow to a select few countries, and to a select few within those countries. And ever fewer are selected as economic policies continue to fail. It is frankly beyond me to see why anyone would want to be part of that. It’s not about Boris Johnson or Nigel Farage or George Osborne, that is just more deception. It’s about being ruled by midgets, as Forsyth puts it...the very structure of the EU self-selects for sociopaths and/or worse.

British Discontent About The EU: Only A Precursor To Unrest On The Continent

If Britain leaves the EU and if the reaction to Brexit causes years of uncertainty, the EU will reap what it has sowed. British discontent is only a precursor to unrest on the Continent, where populists from across the political spectrum feel they have lost control over their fate, and are gaining popularity.

Who Is The "European Movement" And Why The Answer May Change How You Vote On "Brexit"

The revelation that the EU is the result of a major US secret service operation – effectively just yet another secret creature of deception launched by the CIA (taking seat of honour in the hall of infamy that includes false flag operations, invasions, coup-detats, and the establishment of organisations such as Al Qaida and ISIS) solves the third mystery, namely how on earth the allegedly democratic European nations could design such an undemocratic, virtually dictatorial structure.
