Was Washington Behind Egypt’s Military Coup d’Etat? / Politics / Middle East

By: Michel_Chossudovsky

“[US Defense Secretary] Hagel and [US Chief of Staff General] Dempsey were walking a fine line … expressing concern while attempting to avoid the impression that the U.S. was manipulating events behind the scenes.” (Military.com, July 3, 2013)

The protest movement is directed against the US and its proxy Muslim Brotherhood regime.

The Muslim Brotherhood had been spearheaded into the government with the support of Washington as a “replacement” rather than an “alternative” to Hosni Mubarak, who had faithfully obeyed the orders of the Washington Consensus from the outset of his presidency.

No Hope On The Jobs Front: Rising Unemployment in America / Politics / Unemployment

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Do you remember the promise of the New Economy that was going to replace the lost “dirty fingernail” manufacturing jobs with innovative highly paid New Economy jobs? Well, the promise was just another deception from the elites who have stolen Americans’ future.

For the umpteenth consecutive month and year, the June BLS payroll jobs report (released on July 5) shows that the US economy has created no such jobs. The same old tired categories account for the same old lowly paid new domestic service jobs.

Think Your Money is Safe in an Insured Bank Account? Think Again / Politics / Banksters

By: Ellen_Brown

A trend to shift responsibility for bank losses onto blameless depositors lets banks gamble away your money.

When Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem told reporters on March 13, 2013, that the Cyprus deposit confiscation scheme would be the template for future European bank bailouts, the statement caused so much furor that he had to retract it. But the “bail in” of depositor funds is now being made official EU policy. On June 26, 2013, The New York Times reported that EU finance ministers have agreed on a plan that shifts the responsibility for bank losses from governments to bank investors, creditors and uninsured depositors.

State Schools Institutionalizing Ignorance / Politics / Educating Children

By: MISES

Walter Block writes: According to the official White House website, the end goal of schooling is to “help restore middle-class security.” Such a stance is a surprisingly honest one in a political environment built on deceit. The Obama administration makes no attempt to hide the fact that mandatory public schooling is a state tool for manipulating class structure. This is both a historical and economic fact.

Egypt Military Coup Slaps Down Islamist Power / Politics / Middle East

By: Andrew_McKillop

WHEN IS A COUP NOT A COUP?
This is far from an existential question for President Obama and Western leaders. One reason is that political rules, even constitutional laws prevent their governments recognizing or giving aid to coup leaders who declare themselves rulers of a country after overthrowing its elected government.

What Americans Used To Know About the Declaration of Independence / Politics / US Politics

By: Thomas_J_DiLorenzo

"During the weeks following the [1860] election, [Northern newspaper] editors of all parties assumed that secession as a constitutional right was not in question . . . . On the contrary, the southern claim to a right of peaceable withdrawal was countenanced out of reverence for the natural law principle of government by consent of the governed." - ~ Howard Cecil Perkins, editor, Northern Editorials on Secession, p. 10

Forbidden Thoughts on the 4th of July / Politics / US Politics

By: Gary_North

Every nation celebrates its founding day. Ours is the Fourth of July.

Canadians will not be celebrating the Fourth of July. This may have something to do with the fact that in December 1775, the United States of America, which did not actually exist yet, sent two invading armies into Quebec, which was French Canada, in the hope that they could persuade the French to secede. George Washington thought this was a good idea. It made perfect sense politically, because the American Revolution grew out of the taxes imposed by the British government to pay for the debts it had incurred during the French and Indian War, which had led to the surrender of Quebec to the British by the French government in 1763. That war was started by George Washington in 1754 at the Battle of Jumonville Glen.

Deutsche Bank Undercapitalized?, Italy Headed For Bail-out? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Ian_R_Campbell

Deutsche Bank Undercapitalized?

In a statement everyone ought to be aware of if they are not, about two weeks ago U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Vice-Chair Thomas Hoenig was reported as saying that:

  • Germany's Deutsche Bank is "horribly undercapitalized" and has "no margin of error"; and,

  • the Basel III global capital rules (known as the Basil III Accord) allow lenders to appear well capitalized when they aren't.

French Politics – More Hypocrite Than Us “Tu Meurs” (You Die) / Politics / France

By: Andrew_McKillop

OOH LA LA!
Anybody viewing the litany of scandals and scams marking French politics, the economy and business, and social issues from a suitable distance away from ground zero can only say “Ooh la la!”.

Rumors that President Francois Hollande has threatened his government with his own personal resignation – and the likely return of Nicholas Sarkozy – if they go on refusing to keep a “tight ship in adverse times” are treated seriously by several reputed political commentators reporting in French media, including 'Le Monde'. The latest proof of that came with the instant sacking of Ecology minister Delphine Batho, this week. She had criticized the budget cuts hitting her ministry more than others. She had not retracted. So she was sacked on the spot.

The Big Banks On Trial, Again / Politics / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: You want to know why the entire global financial system almost collapsed in 2008?

There seems to be a simple answer. Not encouraging, but simple: The European Commission is exploring the possibility that there was a conspiracy among 13 of the world's major banks that colluded to keep the entire house of cards a secret.
