“The risk of a US recession next year is rising fast” and “the Federal Reserve has no margin for error” according to Ambrose Evans Pritchard writing in the Telegraph. "AEP" is quite well connected and very well informed on such matters and hence the need to consider what he is saying and more importantly prepare.
While Weld insisted he still supports Johnson, he said he is now interested primarily in blocking Trump from winning the presidency and then potentially working with longtime Republican leaders such as Mitt Romney and Haley Barbour to create a new path for the party after the election - "...not sure anybody is more qualified than Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States..."
While the United States accuses Russia of “[bombing] civilian populations into submission,” the U.S. runs the risk of being called out for its own record of aggressive and unsuccessful military interventions in the Middle East in the past decades.
At bottom, it is not central bank stimulus and intervention alone that drives equities and bond markets; it is the naive faith and willful ignorance of average market participants. There is a problem with this kind of economic model, however. Reality is never kept in check indefinitely. Fiscal truths will be exposed, one way or another.
No US Presidential candidate since William McKinley in 1896 has received as nearly-unanimous financial backing from America’s wealthiest 0.01% as Hillary Clinton. What William Jennings Bryan was to them in 1896, is what Donald John Trump is to them 120 years later in 2016.
“I will fight them wherever they are...They are an occupation force that pretends to be assisting us.” Almost 15 years later, it’s quite clear U.S. troops continue to be seen as “liberators” by the Iraqis.
Hillary Clinton repeatedly could not “recall” the answers to 27 different questions from the FBI about her private email server and communications habits when interviewed in July. Now she can't recall if she also suggested droning Julian Assange.
"We write to alert you, as we did President George W. Bush, six weeks before the attack on Iraq, that the consequences of limiting your circle of advisers to a small, relatively inexperienced coterie with a dubious record for wisdom can prove disastrous. Our concern this time regards Syria."
US military strikes against the Assad regime will be back on the table Wednesday at the White House, when top national security officials in the Obama administration are set to discuss options for the way forward in Syria. One proposed approach is to strike the Assad regime without a U.N. Security Council resolution would be to carry out the strikes covertly and without public acknowledgment, the official said.
We live in an age when the level of deceit and propaganda is at an all-time high. Joseph Goebbels, Vladimir Lenin, and others did their best to force-feed propaganda to the masses, but they were rank amateurs compared to the spin doctors employed by the political leaders of today. They’re masters at convincing people of impossible things. Here are six impossible things that many seem to have little trouble accepting as reality.
Details revealed behind a secretive $500mm Pentagon program designed to create fake Al Qaeda propaganda videos and subsequently track viewing locations...once again conspiracy theory becomes conspiracy fact.
"The idea is that the winner of the presidential election is sure to be the biggest loser because the global economy is in the process of tanking, Long Emergency style, and the global finance system is going down with it. Whoever presides over this fiasco from the White House is going to be a bigger bag-holder than old Herbert Hoover in 1929... In short, vote for Hillary and let history flush them all out of the system."
Since the early 90s, policy-makers in Washington have had as their objective the utopian goal of global hegemony, and in order to accomplish this the US armed forces had to expand and create new control centers in every corner of the planet. This is a typical example of imperial overreach, which has historically been the impetus for the collapse of several kingdoms and empires over the centuries.
"Even if he’s as bad as he sometimes projects to be, he’s not as bad as Hillary’s policy-record already is." Sometimes, things in politics are the opposite of the way they seem.
