German, Austrian Politicians Compare Erdogan To Hitler

The leader of Germany's liberal Free Democrats likened Turkish President Erdogan's purge of state institutions to the actions of the Nazi party in the 1930s. His comments echo those of Austria's far-right Heinz-Christian Strache who said on Saturday that Erdogan's use of the failed putsch in July to crack down on his opponents was reminiscent of Hitler's use of the Reichstag blaze to amass greater power.

Saving The System: Exposing The 4 Fallacies Of Modern Monetary Policy

Monetary policy, we are told, is all about staving off recession and stimulating economic growth. However, not only is monetary debasement in any form counterproductive and destroys the personal wealth of the masses, but the economists who devised today’s monetarism have completely lost their way. The real reason for today’s global monetary policies is an ultimately futile attempt to prevent a systemic and economic crisis.

First Sept 11, Now Saudi Arabia Linked To German Terrorst Attacks

Several weeks after the US government finally released a redacted version of the secret "28 pages", which confirmed Saudi Arabia's key role behind the September 11 attack, even as both the Obama administration and Saudi Arabia claimed no such connection exists (when it clearly did for anyone who actually read the disclosure), a trail has now emerged linking the recent surge in deadly terrorist attacks in Germany to Saudi Arabia. 

Fissures In The Empire

Washington has raised the cost of being a member of its Empire too high. Vassals such as France and Germany are beginning to exercise independent policies toward Russia. Observing the cracks in its Empire, Washington has decided to bind its vassals to Washington with terror. Most likely what we are witnessing in the French and German attacks is Operation Gladio.

Diplomatic Scandal Erupts After Turkey Calls Austria The "Capital Of Radical Racism"

Turkish Foreign Minster Mevlut Cavusoglu called Austria the "capital of radical racism" on Friday after Chancellor Christian Kern suggested ending European Union accession talks with Ankara. Cavusoglu said Kern's comments, spurred by a crackdown on suspected perpetrators of a failed coup last month, were "ugly" and that he rejected them all.

30,000 Refugees "Go Missing" As Swedes Face Increasing Violence From Asylum-Seekers

The daily Svenska Dagbladet reported that 30,000 people whose asylum application had been rejected and were scheduled for deportation, had gone missing. The police say they lack the resources to track down these illegals... but do not complain: "If you disagree with the establishment, you are immediately called a racist or fascist, which we definitely are not. At times I felt that this was what it must have been like to live in the old Soviet Union."

Support For Merkel Plunges After German Terrorist Attacks

After the recent surge in terrorist attacks on US soils conducted by ISIS-affiliated refugees who had entered the country thanks to Chancellor Merkel's "Open Door" policy, we expected that popular support for Merkel would once again drop in the polls, but not even we expected such a dramatic move.

Futures, Global Stocks Rise As Oil, USDJPY Drops: All Eyes On The Jobs Report

With all eyes on today's jobs report, where consensus expects a 180K payrolls gain, European, Asian stocks and S&P futures all rise amid a surge in government debt as markets digest the BOE's "kitchen sink" easing for a second day. But please don't overthink it. In deja vu fashion, Bloomberg summarizes the action simply as "stocks rose around the world on speculation central bank stimulus measures will support the global economy." We've heard that just a few times before.

Iran Is Cheating On The Nuclear Deal, Now What?

One year into the nuclear deal, two credible and timely intelligence reports reveal that Iran has no intention of honoring the terms of the deal, which, anyway, it never signed. Germany's domestic intelligence agency revealed that the Iranian government has pursued a "clandestine" path to obtain illicit nuclear technology and equipment from German companies "at what is, even by international standards, a quantitatively high level." What has been President Obama's reaction to these crucial intelligence reports? Silence.
