Real Reason why Pakistan and India Gained Independence in 1947 at 75th Anniversary / Politics / Pakistan

By: N_Walayat

The British Empire through guile and cunning ruled over the asian sub continent for 200 years! Whilst it is well documented how Britain achieved rule over a much larger and more sophisticated population that literally experienced rape and pillage of the people and the lands resources, including use of a millions of slave labour. However each of the newly independant nations have carved out their own myths of how they achieved their independence from British rule which at the 75th anniversary this video explains the REAL reasons for why the sub continent gained it's independence in 1947 and not decades later which as was the fate for most colonies.

China Bank Run Protests - Another Potential Tiananmen Square Massacre? / Politics / Financial Crisis 2022

By: Nadeem_Walayat

China's property market is collapsing that an inept CCP is attempting to prop up through DICTATS, as if a few words on a scrap of paper can fix the fundamentals. A crisis that has now spilled over into the banking system which has seen many ordinary chinese fall victim the chinese banking triad as their hard earnings savings supposedly in 'safe' regional banks have VANISHED over night after the CCP members had withdrawn their funds or had their funds ring fenced for protection whilst ordinary Chinese folks seeking to withdraw their funds are met by hired goons in the hundreds to beat them away from the bank doors. This is the reality of Ray Dalio's China! A brutal tyrannical state that he some how see's as forging the new world order!

Has Rishi Sunak Succeeded in Buying His Way Into No 10 - Fake Tory Leadership Contest / Politics / UK Politics

By: N_Walayat

It looks increasingly likely that Rishi Sunak's Billionaire father in law has managed to buy his son in law the Keys to No 10. Whilst we won't know the true cost of all of the behind the scenes shenanigans, it probably runs in the tens of millions. For India like most developing nations is politically corrupt where the Rich dictate who gets info office and so will give birth to the Sunak Premiership as his battle with Liz Truss is pure smoke and mirrors exercise to convince the electorate that there actually is a leaderships contest when it has all already been bought and paid for by daddy in law.

The Heat is on - Extreme Heatwave's Global Warming Catastrophe / Politics / Climate Change

By: Richard_Mills

In Winnipeg, the hottest day of the year, on average, is nearly 40 degrees Celsius, while in Whitehorse, the mercury blasts past 31.4. A moderating coastal climate means little to Victoria, which averages 33.1 degrees, and Toronto, the most humid city in Canada, becomes even less bearable, with the temperature climbing to a sweltering 38.4.

These are the average hottest temperatures of the year in the new Canada, based on a higher-carbon atmosphere, one of three scenarios put together a few years ago by The Prairie Climate Centre and graphed by The Globe and Mail.

If climate change doesn’t stop, Toronto will see over 100 days of searing-hot weather, according to the University of Winnipeg’s Prairie Climate Institute, which assembled the projected temperatures for Canadian cities as part of an interactive website that allows Canadians to see the likely impact of global warming on where they live.

The warming of the planet could occur at a much faster rate when “feedback loops” are slotted into climate equations. This is what happens when one change causes another change to occur, worsening the first change. NASA states that climate feedbacks could double the amount of warming caused by carbon dioxide alone. A well-known feedback loop is the disappearance of polar sea ice. This exposes dark ocean to sunlight, warming the oceans. When ice covers the poles, the sunlight is reflected back to the atmosphere, keeping the oceans cool. As the planet keeps warming, more ice disappears, exposing more water, further raising ocean temperatures, and sea levels.

Heat, that is getting worse every year and in some parts of the world is becoming literally unbearable (more on that below), is inextricably linked to droughts and fresh water loss. Here’s how it works: a lack of precipitation in the mountains from a new or prolonged drought leads to a low snow pack, lessening the annual freshet that fills up rivers, that convey fresh water into lakes and reservoirs. If this cycle continues year after year, hydro-electric power generation is imperilled, because the reservoirs are too low (such as Lake Mead, discussed below), as well as nuclear power generation that depends on vast amounts of water to run water-cooled nuclear reactors. This leads to blackouts, when residents and businesses who are running their air-conditioning full tilt to get some relief from the scorching heat, find the grid is overwhelmed. In future, there simply won’t be enough water to supply the amount of electricity required.

Why Putin has KILLED Russia / Politics / Russia

By: Nadeem_Walayat

This is also why Putin has effectively KILLED Russia as Russia already had a stagnating population that will now suffer the consequence of a huge brain drain of millions of Russia's best and brightest young minds escaping to a better life abroad, The irony of Putin attempting to protect Russia has in fact KILLED Russia's future! It's GAME OVER for Russia! China will likely seek to capitalise on this dying empire where any close links that Putin forms with Emperor Xi Ping will ultimately result in the loss of Russian territory to China, as several millions of Chinese slip over Russia's eastern border in an stealth invasion in the name of friendship.

White House Inflation Scapegoat / Politics / Inflation

By: MoneyMetals

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason.

As the Biden administration scrambles to try to contain inflation – or at least make a public relations show of it – precious metals investors are wondering how much longer gold and silver prices will remain contained.

Metals markets got a bit of a lift this week through Thursday but have pulled back a bit here today. As of this Friday recording, gold is flat for the week now to trade at $1,860 per ounce. And silver is down 20 cents or 0.9% this week to trade at $22.12 an ounce.

How the NHS Is Forcing Patients to Go Private Due to Consultants with Conflict of Interest / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

Like most religions there is myth and there is reality and so it is with Britain's NHS religion, at the heart of which lies the contracted in consultant's structure who tend to have half a leg in the NHS and half a leg in the private sector resulting in a conflict of interest that acts to funnel patients into the private sector as this example of what to expect at an NHS hospital when one presents themselves for competent treatment that tends to be wholly lacking at expect at the Northern General Hospitals' Orthopedics Fractures and Ankles clinic where even minor operations such as a suspected ruptured Achilles tendon tend to be met with the procedure for kicking the can down the road where consultants tend to IGNORE the patient whilst conversing with the GP practice by letter.

Northern General Hospital Orthopedics Fractures and and Ankle Clinic Consultations Real Patient Experience / Politics / NHS

Here's what to at expect at the Northern General Hospitals' Orthopedics Fractures and Ankles clinic which is where I ended up with an appointment following an injury to my foot, a suspected ruptured Achilles tendon, in advance of which I had an ultrasound also at the Northern General where no info was forthcoming not even of it the scan showed anything good or bad, still that must be upto the consultant to explain what's what and what to do next to get back to recovery.

The entrance to the clinic is next to A&E, a quick book in using the reception touch screen and then after a 40 minute wait my name was called to enter a small cubical that had a computer screen that apparently had an image of what could be my foot so and began the consultation which lasted.....

Biden Seeks Inflation Scapegoats; Gold Advocate Wins GOP Primary / Politics / Government Spending

By: MoneyMetals

Elevated inflation readings and stock market turmoil continue to inflict pain on investors. Some are hoping for a quick turnaround. Others are just looking for a place to hide.

Unfortunately, there have been virtually no safe havens from the broad-based carnage outside of the energy sector and gold.

Gold has been one of the best performing assets this year by virtue of holding up better than stocks, bonds, and cryptos. But the yellow metal came under some heavy selling pressure in futures markets this week.

Metals markets seem to be trading more in line with economic slowdown fears and margin calls on Wall Street than with inflation. That will likely change when the recent spate of panic selling subsidies.

Why is vaping a trend amongst teens? / Politics / Social Issues

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

The main objective at the start of the electric smoking industry was to get standard cigarette smokers to make the switch to an e-cigarette and combat their nicotine addictions. Though there are still millions of people who still use cigarettes, many people did decide to make the switch. Par of the electric smoking industry’s success is owed to a group of people that the industry had not taken into consideration, teenagers. As the e-smoking business grew, teenagers all over the world started using it, but is that a good thing?

Neither the FED nor US Government Can Print “Trust” / Politics / US Politics

By: Raymond_Matison

In this period of great economic, financial, monetary and geopolitical uncertainty, Borge Brende, the current president of the World Economic Forum, stated that countries need to prepare for the next crisis today.  Mr. Brende more importantly stated that “We have to focus on rebuilding trust. There is a lot of lack of trust”.  That is a very insightful and timely observation.  Stateside and nearer to home, a recent University of Michigan survey notes that confidence in US government policies is at its lowest since 2014.    

At the same time, available statistics show that 84% of the people in China trust their government, while 81% of Indonesians and 79% of the people in India trust their governments. How does one explain, that those countries which the western world criticizes for being oppressive or lacking freedom, when polled rank higher in trust of their governments than western democracies?

Climate Change Crisis and the Coming Global Reset / Politics / Climate Change

By: Richard_Mills

It is 2050. Beyond the emissions reductions registered in 2015, no further efforts were made to control emissions. We are heading for a world that will be more than 3C warmer by 2100.

The first thing that hits you is the air. In many places around the world, the air is hot, heavy and, depending on the day, clogged with particulate pollution. Your eyes often water. Your cough never seems to disappear. You think about some countries in Asia, where, out of consideration, sick people used to wear white masks to protect others from airborne infection. Now you often wear a mask to protect yourself from air pollution. You can no longer simply walk out your front door and breathe fresh air: there might not be any. Instead, before opening doors or windows in the morning, you check your phone to see what the air quality will be.

Melting permafrost releases ancient microbes today’s humans have never been exposed to and have no resistance to. Fewer people work outdoors and even indoors the air can taste slightly acidic, sometimes making you feel nauseated. The last coal furnaces closed 10 years ago, but that hasn’t made much difference in air quality around the world because you are still breathing dangerous exhaust fumes from millions of cars and buses everywhere. Our world is getting hotter. Over the next two decades, projections tell us that temperatures in some areas of the globe will rise even higher, an irreversible development now utterly beyond our control. Oceans, forests, plants, trees and soil had for many years absorbed half the carbon dioxide we spewed out. Now there are few forests left, most of them either logged or consumed by wildfire, and the permafrost is belching greenhouse gases into an already overburdened atmosphere. The increasing heat of the Earth is suffocating us and in five to 10 years, vast swaths of the planet will be increasingly inhospitable to humans. We don’t know how hospitable the arid regions of Australia, South Africa and the western United States will be by 2100. No one knows what the future holds for their children and grandchildren: tipping point after tipping point is being reached, casting doubt on the form of future civilisation. Some say that humans will be cast to the winds again, gathering in small tribes, hunkered down and living on whatever patch of land might sustain them.

The Avoidable Ukrainian Crisis, the unavoidable global hit / Politics / Ukraine War

By: Dan_Steinbock

                                 
To Russia and Ukraine, the crisis is an existential issue. To the US/NATO, it's an enlargement power play. To Europe, it spells a new era of uncertainty. In the world economy, it takes us all closer to an edge.  

The Ukraine crisis did not come out of the blue. It was allowed to happen. How did we get here?

The dominant view is to blame everything on Russia, as international media largely does. But critics and peace advocates see other factors as well. In effect, there’s four plausible scenarios and they are not mutually exclusive.

First It Was “Transitory,” Then a Sign of Recovery, Then Corporate Greed, Now It’s Vladimir Putin’s Fault!

First, they said inflation was transitory. Then when that line became untenable, they said inflation was a sign of a recovering economy. Then when polls showed most Americans believed they were losing ground financially, the White House blamed corporate greed. Now they’re saying it’s all Vladimir Putin’s fault.

Another volatile week of trading saw precious metals markets rally to new highs for the year on Tuesday before suffering a sharp drawdown on Wednesday and more selling on Friday.
