Long Knives Out for Trump / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

He’s a longtime establishment figure. How else could he become super-rich, able to be the GOP standard bearer, then president?

Yet he’s portrayed as an outlier. Undemocratic Democrats and media scoundrels despise him for preventing Hillary from getting the nation’s top job.

An unrelenting blitzkrieg persists to demonize, weaken and delegitimize him, a softening up process aimed at ousting him from office by forced resignation, impeachment or more sinister means.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Like many fellow fatties out their deluding themselves that they are healthy due to keeping fit / taking regular exercise. After all exercise is good for you, so surely it negates the negative effects of having a body mass index of over 30? Well a new UK study into the medical records of 3.5 million NHS GP patients bursts that bubble !

Who Are ASEAN’s Biggest Military Spenders, Really?  / Politics / Asian Economies

By: Dan_Steinbock

The conventional military narratives highlight aggregate expenditures and downplay per capita spending. Realities are more nuanced, both globally and in Southeast Asia.

The conventional narrative is that China has become assertive, while the West is ignoring its defense needs. According to SIPRI research, in the past decade military spending in China and Russia increased 118% and 87%, respectively, while US spending plunged almost 5%.

GOP Establishment Elite Plots Trump Removal / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Russia, Russia and all things Russia!

The drum beat never ceases. Only the most dense and easily manipulated buy into the bogus narrative that Trump is a Russian asset subject to blackmail. After all these pathetic months of disinformation from the Beltway District of Criminals, the absence of factual reality has become the most rare commodity in the public arena. The establishment panic over the enactment of a robust America First policy administration has the bi-partisan ranks of dedicated Statists scheming to remove President Trump from office by any means necessary. It should be obvious that marginalizing his presidency started the day of his election. Now the ground work is being set to trump up some phony story, absent of any definitive proof, that will entice the GOP never Trumpers, to join in with the deranged Democrats to remove their most threatening nemesis.

Tax Reform and the ‘Repatriation’ Trade / Politics / Taxes

By: Gary_Tanashian

Since the Trump victory we have heard all about the coming fiscal policies that would replace the non-stop and brilliantly evil* monetary policies employed by the Fed since the 2008 market crash. These fiscal policies range from the hair-brained (rust belt factory job repatriation) to the silly (building a border wall in lieu of modernizing security-focused information and surveillance technologies) to the arduous (fixing the Healthcare system) to the sound (well-targeted tax cuts). We’ll get tax cuts, but how well targeted they’ll turn out to be will be debated endlessly and I for one don’t think the trend of the rich getting hyper richer and the poor getting poorer is going to reverse any time soon. For reference, see this post at Biiwii.

The Russian Hacking Fiasco / Politics / US Presidential Election 2016

By: Mike_Whitney

There’s no proof that Russia hacked the US elections.

There’s no proof that Russian officials or Russian agents colluded with members of the Trump campaign.

There’s no proof that Russia provided material support of any kind for the Trump campaign or that Russian agents hacked Hillary Clinton’s emails or that Russian officials provided Wikileaks with emails that were intended to sabotage Hillary’s chances to win the election.

Trump Administration Shakeup Coming? / Politics / US Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

The world’s most powerful position can be its most lonely, frustrating, unrewarding and dangerous when US dark forces oppose the chief executive’s agenda, key parts thereof - or if the incumbent is perceived to be too independent.

The “mess” Trump said he inherited is America’s debauched system, its ruthlessness, its war on humanity at home and abroad, its deep state power, presidents either serving its interests or else.

Revving Up War on Trump, Risks of Coup d’etat / Politics / US Politics

Instead of criticizing him for the right reasons, media scoundrels bash him for the wrong ones.

Dark forces in Washington want him weakened, delegitimized, ousted, and replaced by neocon Pence, an easily controlled establishment figure, their sinister agenda in good hands with him as president.

MR ROBOT NHS Cyber Attack Hack - Why Israel, NSA, CIA and GCHQ are Culpable / Politics / Cyber Crime

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Near 1/3rd of Britain's healthcare system was SHUTDOWN Friday due to being hack attacked, data encrypted by ransomware known as WannaCry demanding $300 per infected machine under threat of all data being lost. The primary reason why this attack was able to take down Britains healthcare system so easily is because it is mostly running on the out of date operating systems such as XP that are no longer being maintained by Microsoft. Which means that Microsoft has not been releasing patches to newly discovered bugs, exploits and threats for many years, so with each passing year the probability for an attack increases exponentially.

The US And Turkey Debate Approach To Islamic State / Politics / Taxes

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN AND JACOB L. SHAPRIO : Two things happened in Syria recently that went under the radar.

First, US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) claimed to have ousted Islamic State (IS) fighters from the last IS-controlled districts in Tabqa. This is a town 25 miles west of the IS’s de facto capital, Raqqa. According to the Syrian Kurdish Hawar News Agency, IS fighters are now besieged at the Tabqa Dam outside the town.

Brace Yourself For The Coming Economic Transformation, Sliding Down the Social Class Scale / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

If the average person in the US feels as though they are going nowhere fast, there is a real reason for it.

Federal Reserve data shows people are earning less than they did 17 years ago. But the real story is even worse than that.

The chart below shows that median income in the US is actually down over the last 17 years and is only 3% higher now than it was 30 years ago. Those are inflation-adjusted numbers.

Just look at this chart!

If you were born in 1980, you only have a 50% chance of making more money than your parents.

But if you were born in 1950, you had a 79% chance, according to research that Raj Chetty and his team of economists did.

That’s one heck of a drop!

Comey and the End of Conversation / Politics / US Politics

You might have thought, and hoped, that recent events, such as the election of Trump as president of the US, or Brexit, or the rise of Marine Le Pen and other non-establishment forces in Europe, would, as a matter of -natural- course, have led to increased conversation and discussion between parties, entities, whose divisions were material in sparking these events.

Czar Trump Fires Comey, Terminates Deep State FBI, CIA Director Next? / Politics / Deep State

By: Nadeem_Walayat

America is fast descending into an alternative reality as the delirium inducing President systemically presses the Reset Button on the United States of perhaps that which has gone before for the past 100 years. The latest step is to systimatically dismantle all opposing law enforcement and intelligence agencies that have been busy discovering and leaking the deep underlying truths that Trump IS Putin's 'Manchurian Candidate', a fellow delirium inducing dictator who has warped the minds of Russians to blame everyone for Russia's woes except the person responsible, Czar Putin, whom Trump is grateful towards for ensuring his election.

America Preaching Politics from the Pulpit / Politics / Religion

By: BATR

When is a law unconstitutional and defaces the First Amendment?  Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; is as clear cut as any assertion in the basic law of the land. Yet Donald Trump correct — Lyndon Johnson passed legislation limiting political activity of churches and has lead to the systematic exclusion of religious political speech. Yet the Johnson amendment survived court challenges in 1983, 1990 and 2000, according to Pew. Such perversion of fundamental rights endowed by God and subverted by government illustrates that the nature of politics defies the only legitimate authority, which any society can derive and claim its moral authority upon.

Afghanistan Is America's New Vietnam Unwinnable War / Politics / Afghanistan

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN AND KAMRAN BOKHARI : There is a paradox when it comes to views about Afghanistan. No one would disagree that after 15 years, the Afghan state built by the West remains ineffective. Yet, no one is willing to accept that if present trends continue, the clear outcome will be regime collapse.

The Afghan government is unable to thwart a growing jihadist insurgency dominated by the Taliban. Nor is it able to prevent the Islamic State (IS) from expanding its footprint in the country. Worse is that increased factional infighting is gutting the Afghan political system from the inside.

Poverty Is Going Extinct But The Middle Class Is Still In Trouble / Politics / Social Issues

By: John_Mauldin

On a global basis, the number of people trapped in extreme poverty has dropped this century. That trend does not mean everyone everywhere is living comfortably. Many millions still endure terrible conditions. But their numbers are shrinking.

The reason for the improvement, I believe, is two-fold. Technology and free trade. These have brought economic growth to formerly stagnant economies.

Trump’s Conversion into a Warmongering Neo-con - The Horror! The Horror! (Part Three) / Politics / US Politics

By: James_Quinn

In Part One and Part Two of this article I detailed the decades of propaganda, false flags, and misinformation campaigns used by the Deep State to gain power and control over the U.S. government. When war or a financial crisis is necessary to keep the profits flowing, events will be steered to such an outcome. With the latest financial plundering operation running out of steam, the Deep State is pushing the world toward global conflict.

If at first you don’t succeed with a false flag gas attack, try try again. Knowing a vast swath of the American populace is incapable of critical thinking or able to discern between fake news and factual events, the Deep State and their media lackeys unquestioningly promoted the story of children being killed by a sarin gas attack by Assad. The photos of rescue workers helping victims without gloves immediately invalidated the narrative, as the rescue workers would be dead if they handled sarin gas victims without protective gear.

BrExit Threat - London Bridge is (Broken) Down / Politics / BrExit

By: Raul_I_Meijer

The French election, won just now by Emmanuel Macron, put several segments of the French population opposite one another in a pretty fierce contest. And that contest will continue. Because Macron won’t be able to lift the French economy out of its doldrums any more than Le Pen could have, or than Trump can life the US, and the new president will have the honor of presiding over a further and deepening downturn. The French political dividing line was aptly described by Simon Kuper recently:
