One Year Before Paris Attacks, France Denounced Monstrous TTIP Trade Deal

This monster agreement isn’t being taken “as is” without a fight, however. France’s Secretary of State for Foreign Trade Matthias Fekl and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker have both spoken out against the Investor State Dispute Settlement mechanism (ISDS) section of the treaty.

EurActiv France reports:

“Matthias Fekl, France’s Secretary of State for Foreign Trade, has made it clear that France will not support the inclusion of the Investor State Dispute Settlement mechanism (ISDS) in a potential TTIP agreement. The ISDS is a point of heated debate between the EU and the United States … ‘France did not want the ISDS to be included in the negotiation mandate,’ Matthias Fekl told the French Senate. ‘We have to preserve the right of the state to set and apply its own standards, to maintain the impartiality of the justice system and to allow the people of France, and the world, to assert their values”

All of this was reported exactly one year before the attacks in Paris on Nov 13, 2015.

Whether the federal minimum wage should be raised was the first question of the recent Republican presidential candidates’ debate.

Politicians slam tax-avoiding Pfizer-Allergan deal

U.S. politicians condemned Pfizer Inc's deal with Allergan Plc as a tax dodge on Monday, bringing another round of hand-wringing in Washington over the corporate tax code, though legislative action before 2017 is unlikely.

Democrats heaped the most criticism on the New York-based drug maker, with Hillary Clinton accusing Pfizer of using legal loopholes to avoid its "fair share" of taxes in a deal that she said "will leave U.S. taxpayers holding the bag."

Co-operative Bank close Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s account

Last month, PSC’s account was closed by the Co-operative Bank which cited “the Bank’s risk appetite” for the closure and has refused to elaborate further.

Another 20[i] organisations working for Palestine – including a number of PSC branches – have also had their accounts closed or denied.

PSC and its legal team believe the decision is discriminatory and contravenes the Equality Act 2010. PSC has today initiated legal proceedings against the Bank.

ITN solicitors, acting on behalf of PSC, state the Co-operative Bank’s “failure to provide any reasons for the closure of PSC’s account, which has been compounded by your failure to provide appropriate disclosure, leads to the conclusion that the decision to close the account is based on:

Our client’s cogent belief in Palestinian rights, including the right to self-determination and the right of return, and to oppose Israel’s occupation and violations of international law.

Just three months ago Consumer Confidence was peaking at 8 year highs and everything was awesome. Now, with the biggest miss since March 2009, Consumer Confidence crashed to 90.4 from 99.1. This is the lowest since Septmeber 2014 as the "decline was mainly due to a less favorable view of the job market." Almost every cohort - across age, income, race saw a collapse in confidence though we note low income and under-35s saw the biggest declines as Income Growth expectations plunge to the lowest in 14 months.

Report: More Than 1 In 4 Americans Believe Government Is The Enemy

More than 1 in 4 Americans believe that the government is the enemy, according to a new poll.

Pew Research Center found that 27 percent of registered voters say they think of government as an enemy, up 8 points since 1996. The latest poll looked at general public opinion regarding the federal government.

The findings suggests that 57 percent of voters feel frustrated with the government, while 22 percent feel angry and 18 percent feel “basically content.”

The majority of Americans feel the federal government has room for serious improvement, with 59 percent saying the government needs “very major reform.” Only 37 percent of voters felt that way in 1997.

When asked what particularly makes the government problematic, congress and politics were cited most often. Thirteen percent mentioned Congress, while 11 percent named politics.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As completely dysfunctional as the US government has become, not to mention that you cannot believe a word any member of that government says, I am flabbergasted that the number of those characterising the government as "the enemy" is so low!!

Saudi De-Peg Looms As FX Market Signals Loudest "Black Swan Warning" In 13 Years

As we noted recently, BofAML fears "a depeg of the Saudi riyal is the number one black-swan event for the global oil market in 2016," adding that it is "a highly unlikely but highly impactful risk." Given the recent action in Saudi Riyal forwards - the market's best guess at where the oil-ruch nation's currency will trade in the future - the chance of the black swan 'de-peg' is its highest since 2002. Besides this morning's "whatever it takes" moment, which oil markets quickly shrugged off, amid heavy subsidies to keep the people calm and the costs of wars in Yemen (and more in Syria), weak oil revenues leave The Sauds with few options (outside of the load the nation with ever more debt program): It's either stop it with the whole flooding an oversupplied market strategy, or let the peg fall before reserves runs dry.

War, Winter and the Weary – The Unfolding European Housing Crisis

By Graham Vanbergen

Property prices across almost all the 28 EU member states have increased and have grown faster than incomes. The price correction of the post-2008 era fizzled out due to zero interest rate policy by the global central banks. The price-income ratios are still not back in line, effectively creating another debt-fuelled housing bubble.

The latest data available for poverty in the EU highlights that more than a third of the population is at risk of poverty or social exclusion in five EU Member States: Bulgaria (48.0 %), Romania (40.4 %), Greece (35.7 %), Latvia (35.1 %) and Hungary (33.5 %). At the other end of the scale, the lowest shares of persons being at risk of poverty or social exclusion were recorded in Sweden (16.4 %), Finland (16.0 %), the Netherlands (15.9 %) and the Czech Republic (14.6 %).

Housing is of course by far the most income-consuming expenditure, followed largely by heating and food...

The U.S. Dollar Has Already Caused A Global Recession And Now The Fed Is Going To Make It Worse

The 7th largest economy on the entire planet, Brazil, has been gripped by a horrifying recession, as has much of the rest of South America. But it isn’t just South America that is experiencing a very serious economic downturn. We have just learned that Japan (the third largest economy in the world) has lapsed into recession. So has Canada. So has Russia. The dominoes are starting to fall, and it looks like the global economic crisis that has already started is going to accelerate as we head into the end of the year. At this point, global trade is already down about 8.4 percent for the year, and last week the Baltic Dry Shipping Index plummeted to a brand new all-time record low. Unfortunately for all of us, the Federal Reserve is about to do something that will make this global economic slowdown even worse.

Former Walmart employee receives outpouring of support after claiming he was fired for cashing in cans

A GoFundMe campaign launched for a former Walmart employee raised a whopping $20,000 after the Albany man claims he was fired for cashing in cans and bottles for $5.10.

Thomas Smith, 52, an ex-convict who was formerly homeless, worked at the Walmart in East Greenbush, N.Y. for $9 an hour retrieving shopping carts from the Supercenter parking lot before he was fired for cashing in discarded cans and bottles, he told the Daily News.

Smith said the first batch of cans and bottles were discovered near a dumpster in the parking lot and netted him $3.10. He redeemed a second batch for $2 after he found them in a shopping cart left behind by a couple.

However, Walmart claims Smith was fired for stealing from inside the store.

Walmart spokesman Aaron Mullins said the initial reporting of Smith’s story is misleading.

Govt Denies Hungry Families Thanksgiving Food Because a Pro-Cannabis Group Donated It

In the state of Oregon, where marijuana was recently legalized, a government agency has rejected food donations for the holidays because the donations came on the behalf of a marijuana-related organization. A group called Women Leaders in Cannabis was able to raise considerable food donations for people in need and initially their contributions were accepted by Oregon’s Department of Human Services.

However, the agency later changed their mind and decided that they did not want to accept the donations because they did not want to be associated with a substance that is now legal in the state.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the state of Oregon would rather see people go hungry on Thanksgiving, than accept charity from an "unapproved" group?

The government began the so-called negotiations by demanding cuts of between 25 percent and 40 percent to department budgets. Osborne has boasted that he had secured an average of 30 percent cuts to the first four departments to complete negotiations—the Treasury, Transport, Local Government and the Department of Environment.

Hillary’s War Whoop: Get the Picture? ISIS is Everywhere, Syria, Iraq, Europe, the US

If you’re one of the millions of Americans who think Hillary Clinton would make a lousy president, then pat yourself on the back because she pretty much proved it yesterday. In a presentation to the Council on Foreign Relations, Clinton made it clear that if she’s elected in 2016, she’s going to drag the country straight to war. Invoking the same imagery as her ideological twin, George W. Bush, Clinton fulminated for more than an hour and a half on Syria, war, terrorism, war, no-fly zones, war, radical jihadism, war, and “metastasizing threats”, whatever the heck those are. Oh, and did I mention war?

Monday Market Movement – HUGE Data Week

Very Strange Indeed!

The Fed made an announcement Friday they will be holding an “expedited, closed meeting” on Monday. This is very strange indeed. First, aren’t all meetings “closed”? And how often do they hold “expedited” meetings. When I first heard this my mind started to turn toward “why”? Why would they have the need to do this? And on such short notice?

My first thoughts were either something may have broken in the derivatives markets or maybe it had something to do with the upcoming IMF vote to decide whether or not to let China into the SDR? These two thoughts made the most sense as markets have moved in large percentages both up and down. The stock and sovereign bonds markets have been firm and still pressed up against their highs so it can only be a short in trouble. Commodities have been eviscerated so maybe a long (Glencore or others?) could be in trouble?

The fact that global debt is growing throughout the world is widely acknowledged and well documented.

Perfect Russia for the West: Kneeled and in tatters

The buzz about "Russia is running out of money" does not seem to match the data on Russia's investment in the construction of Vostochny (Eastern) cosmodrome (4.8 billion dollars), in the construction of infrastructure and stadiums for the FIFA World Cup 2018 (50 billion dollars), in the construction of the bridge across the Kerch Strait (from mainland Russia to Crimea - 3.5 billion dollars), multi-billion-dollar investment in the construction of gas pipelines, nuclear power plants, highways and so on and do forth.

In October, Russia launched eleven new large-scale productions totaling over 500 million rubles each. Since the beginning of this year, as many as 206 large factories have been launched, including the ones with the participation of foreign capital that is supposedly flowing out of Russia in a scale that makes one wonder how it has not flown out completely yet.

For a company that is long accustomed to getting its way in just about every jurisdiction on planet Earth, the constant obstructionism of the Mexican justice system is beginning to wear thin for Monsanto. But the company and its rivals still have one ace up their sleeves, a weapon that has the potential to obliterate Mexico’s judicial resistance in one fell swoop: the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the world’s biggest trade agreement that was recently signed by the governments of 12 Pacific-rim nations, including Mexico.

Buried deep within the 5,000-plus page deal is the Intellectual Property Rights charter which, among many other sinister things, requires all 12 TPP countries to join a number of global intellectual property treaties. One of those treaties is the International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants 1991 (UPOV 91), an agreement that elevates the rights of seed companies over farmers’ rights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mexican farmers have every right to be deeply concerned about GMO corn.

As reported at in October of 2012:

Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation. The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm. By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives. "We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies," said Epicyte president Mitch Hein. Still unknown is who funded this original research (UPDATE, major funding was from the USDA) . But once the Epicyte gene, which irreversibly sterilizes humans who eat it, was patented, Monsanto and DuPont bought the company in order to "commercially exploit" the Epicyte gene. That means they had a customer for this product! Who is buying this gene and where is it being used? After ten years, how many GMO products have included this human-sterilization gene? One of the last of Tom Clancy's books that he authored alone was called "Rainbow Six", and the villain of the book was a group of money-junkies who decided that Earth was too "polluted" with the poor and wanted the Earth to go back to nature (except of course for their own personal palaces). Art mirrors life? We know that ultra-rich like Melinda Gates openly support forced population reduction in the apparent belief that having a lot of money gives them the right to play God with the rest of humanity. Personally I think that if the population is to be reduced, that we start with such self-declared deities, to be followed by those who would condemn millions to death in wars to make a fast buck. But of greater concern is this. The Epicyte gene was in corn down in San Diego more than ten years ago. And we know know that modified genes can jump species through pollination, which is why the weeds once killed by Glyphosate are now as "Roundup Ready" as the GMO crops themselves. And we know that these modified genes can also jump from the original GMO frankenfood onto the natural varieties. Many people are already familiar with the case of Percy Schmeiser, who did not want GMO crops on his farm but discovered to his horror that pollen blowing from a neighboring field had contaminated his crops. When he complained, Monsanto sued him for "Patent Infringement" and demanded Schmeiser pay a technology fee to use his own saved seeds, since they included Monsanto's patented genes, and Schmeiser knowingly was replanting them. Schmeiser eventually persuaded the courts that he had never wanted Monsanto's products and the courts ruled against Monsanto, who eventually agreed to pay the costs to decontaminate Schmeiser's farm. Other farmers were not so lucky in the courts, and lost their farms to Monsanto in patent infringement lawsuits. The point is that for ten years, pollen from corn containing the Epicyte gene has been blowing around Southern California farms (along with everywhere else the Epicyte gene was "commercialized"). How far it has spread is impossible to determine without an extensive genetic survey of the food supply. That it may already be global cannot be ruled out. But there is no question that birth rates are in decline. While the corporate media may blame this birth rate drop solely on the economic problems (and there is no question this is a factor) there is also no question that doctors were noticing a sudden uptick in fertility problems back in 2008 before the economic explosion even happened. And the sudden reverse in US birth rates actually occurred in 2007, again before the economic crash took hold. Were economics the only factor, one would expect a smoother transition in birth rates as birth rate slowed, then plateaued, then went into decline, accelerating as the economy worsened. But in the above graph we see a sudden and dramatic reversal, suggesting some other cause. Note the drop is especially heavy in the Hispanic population, whose traditional diet relies very heavily on corn.

JFK Secret Societies Speech (full version)

Nov 23 07:52


Western leaders have agreed to extend sanctions against Moscow by six more months over the crisis in Ukraine.

During a brief meeting on the sidelines of the week-long G20 summit in Antalya, Turkey, the leaders of US, Germany, Italy, the UK and French foreign minister Laurent Fabius, who represented President Francois Hollande at the summit, concluded to uphold pressure on Russia until July next year, ahead of elections in eastern Ukraine, Reuters reported on Sunday, citing an unnamed senior European diplomat.

The current round of sanctions is due to end in January, before full implementation of the so-called Minsk peace deal, which intends to resolve the standoff between Kiev and pro-Russian forces in eastern Ukraine.

“The elections in Ukraine are heavy lifting. We only have a chance to get what we want if we play the sanctions card. Financial sanctions need to stay in place until the bitter end," the diplomat further said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at this decision by the leaders of US, Germany, Italy, the UK, and France reminds me of a brilliant one-liner by the American comedian Ron White: "you can't fix stupid".

And stupidity, coupled with hypocrisy, is almost always destined to create catastrophe.

The crisis in Ukraine was generated by the US, the EU, and the IMF last year,when the duly elected government of Yanukovich was overthrown, and Poroshenko was installed in order to make Ukraine more eurocentric, economically.

When Crimea's leadership realized that its duly elected government no longer existed, they sponsored a free and fair referendum in which the people of Crimea voted to rejoin the Russian Federation, and Russia accepted that request. Remember; it was only in the 1950s when Crimea was annexed to Ukraine by Nikita Khrushchev, himself an ethnic Ukrainian.

Russia did nothing wrong, and the West is attempting to punish Russia for something the west, itself, did by supporting the overthrow of Yanukovich.

And what the continuation of these sanctions will ultimately do is pull Russia and China even closer together, economically and militarily.

As I read this report coming out of Antalya with absolute despair and disgust, it appears very evident to me that of the prime criteria for working for Western governments is the pathological inability to think anything through to its logical conclusion.

Ultimate Weapon in Existential Struggle: Using the TPP for Hostile Takeover of Mexican Agriculture

Resisting Monsanto, the world’s largest, most influential GMO giant, is an almost impossible task. The corporation boasts more back channels and revolving doors with national governments and regulators than just about any other company on the planet, not to mention a fearsome army of corporate lawyers and lobbyists. Few countries are more aware of this fact than Mexico, where a small collective of activist groups, scientists, artists and gourmet chefs have been engaged in a titanic legal struggle with Monsanto. Although they keep winning crucial battles, the war is still likely to be won by Monsanto, thanks to one key weapon in its arsenal: the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
