Here’s Why China’s Supposed Influence Over North Korea Is A Bluff / Politics / North Korea

By: John_Mauldin

By Xander Snyder : The US is pushing China deeper into a corner over the crisis with North Korea. It wants the Chinese to persuade the North Koreans to give up their nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

The popular perception is that Beijing has substantial leverage over Pyongyang, partly because China is North Korea’s largest trading partner. This impression also stems from China’s proposals to mediate trade concessions between North Korea and the United States.

BY PATRICK WATSON : Health care is now a huge, thorny political and economic issue, and the chart below shows one reason why.

The US spends far more on health care than other developed nations, with worse outcomes by many measures.

Yet, all that money doesn’t just disappear.

Trump Backs ISIS As He Pushes US Onto Brink of World War III With Russia / Politics / WW3

By: Jeff_Berwick

If you asked your normal, television programmed American about 9/11, many would still say what a sad day it was, the day the US was attacked by Al-Qaeda’s Muslim extremists.

They are wrong about who did it, of course… but then again they get their “news” from fakestream media and have been drinking fluoride, getting vaccinated and spent their entire childhood in government indoctrination camps.

Al Qaeda, which was a CIA creation has now morphed into ISIS, and the same people are backing ISIS that backed Al Qaeda - the US government, Israel, Saudi Arabia, CIA, and NATO.

North Korea: Is War the Inevitable Outcome? / Politics / North Korea

By: HAA

Shannara Johnson : There’s little doubt that from the moment Kim Jong-un took power in 2011, he has been on a mission to accelerate North Korea’s nuclear program.

There’s also little doubt this is of extreme concern to the US and the Trump administration.

Daily reports of US warships and submarines moving in along the Korean Peninsula and unrelenting missile tests in North Korea have sparked worries that a strike may be imminent. Will we end up in a war with North Korea, and what would be the consequences?

Why The EU’s Recent Plans To Regulate London’s Financial Sector Are Overblow / Politics / BrExit

By: John_Mauldin

By Antonia Colibasanu : A major concern after Brexit was that it will destroy the financial sector in the UK and and the EU since London is a financial hub.

Those who hold this view would see the European Commission’s new plans announced on June 13 to regulate a very lucrative industry in London’s financial sector as a case in point.

US-China Trade amid America’s New Uncertainty / Politics / China US Conflict

By: Dan_Steinbock

As the White House is preparing to a political war for its survival, the Trump-Xi 100 day plan should overcome long-term pressures on US-China ties.

After the two-day summit at Mar-a-Lago, the US and China announced a 100-day plan to improve strained trade ties and boost cooperation between two nations. Soon thereafter, the US Department of Justice appointed Robert Mueller, the former director of the FBI (2001-13) as special counsel overseeing the investigation into the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections.

Trump White House Under Siege  / Politics / US Politics

By: Dan_Steinbock

Washington is planning to extend sanctions against Russia, once again. Meanwhile, the Trump administration is getting ready to cope with a special counsel’s investigation which seems to focus as much on Trump as Russia.

Last Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned that Congress should not pass any legislation that would undercut "constructive dialogue" with Russia. Yet, the Senate voted 97-2 to advance a bipartisan agreement to launch new financial penalties on Russia and to let the Congress intervene before President Trump can lift sanctions. Afterwards, Trump tweeted that he is the subject of the “single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history,” and one that he said is being led by “some very bad and conflicted people.”

In today’s world, with statism and big government ideas pounded into most people via 12 years of government indoctrination camps and mainstream media glorifying government constantly, people have a hard time wondering what life would be like in a free world without massive communist style central planning agencies extorting the entire population.

Until now, though, there has been one shining example of anarchy. The internet.

The residents Grenfell Tower have paid the heavy price for the cladding refurbishment craze that has been sweeping Britain for the past decade. One of 30 to 50 year old social housing tower blocks, many of which that should have been demolished but instead are being dolled up with cladding and insulation to reduce energy costs to make them externally more appealing to both residents, visitors and most importantly nearby affluent areas as was the case with Grenfell Tower, a pocket of social housing in Kensington, probably the most affluent area of Britain.

British Election Sends Shockwaves Felt Here and Abroad / Politics / UK Politics

By: John_Browne

Last week's General Election in the United Kingdom was a disaster for the new conservative government of Prime Minster Theresa May. Having called the unnecessary "snap" elections in order to strengthen her political hand, the result actually reduced the number of seats held by the conservatives and delivered large gains to the opposition Labour party, which had seemed in disarray just a few months ago. Although she has announced no plans to step down, her position has been severely weakened, possibly fatally. More pointedly, the UK's hand in negotiating favorable Brexit terms has eroded substantially. Besides creating significant ramifications for the European and global economy, the election also provides important lessons for the potential state of American politics.

One of 30 to 50 year old social housing tower blocks, many of which that should have been demolished but instead are being dolled up with cladding and insulation to reduce energy costs to make them externally more appealing to both residents, visitors and most importantly nearby affluent areas as was the case with Grenfell Tower, a pocket of social housing in Kensington, probably the most affluent area of Britain. An area where millionaires can be found living within 100 metres of taxi drivers, refugees and the other low paid workers necessary for the functioning of London. The rich just could not stand the view form their mansions as they looked out upon modernist concrete tower blocks, so they rich got their way as most of the nations concrete tower blocks have been all cladded up.

From OSS to CIA Ongoing Clash with Military Intelligence / Politics / Intelligence Agencies

By: BATR

For all those supporters of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's war, many admire the exploits of the OSS in Europe. While historians for the allied legions adopt the account that circumstances dictated the creation and use of the British, Special Operations Executive, which Churchill proclaimed, to 'set Europe aflame'; the precedent left a heritage of intervention that few ever warned about the nature of counter-offensive missions. Gathering intelligence on adversaries is valid and even necessary to defend your country. However, to establish contingents of lethal assassins is a fundamental departure from intelligence procurement. During World War II the American version of clandestine operations put into motion a competing and dangerous rival to the traditional role of military intelligence.

US-China Ties in the Shadow of the Mueller Investigation / Politics / US Politics

By: Dan_Steinbock

In the foreseeable future, the Trump administration will be constrained by the special counsel’s Russia investigation. How will it impact the White House’s relations with China?

It was a strange month. First, the Department of Justice (DOJ) dismissed James Comey, Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), who the center-right Democrats blame for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 electoral loss. In turn, the center-left Sanders-supporters attribute the loss to Hillary Clinton’s gross abuse of public office and funds, Bill Clinton’s corrupt Global Initiative, collusion with the Democratic Leadership Committee (DLC) and mainstream media.

Will Trump Get Away With All of It? / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

The good news for Trumptarians is that Donald J. Trump is not going to be legally impeached, indicted, removed from office or otherwise until his protectors and enablers are weakened first: Congressional Republicans. And they won’t be weakened until mid-term elections in 2018. In “Washington time” that might as well be the next century.

Trump's UK Visit on Hold / Politics / UK Politics

By: Stephen_Lendman

It may be cancelled altogether. Reportedly he told Prime Minister Theresa May he won't come until Brits support him - highly unlikely any time ahead.

He doesn't want to visit London if large-scale protests are planned during his visit.

Days after his inauguration, in response to May revealing he accepted Queen Elizabeth's invitation to come, anti-Trump campaigners used social media, calling for London's "biggest protest ever."

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN AND JACOB L. SHAPIRO : 70 years ago, US Secretary of State George Marshall gave a speech at Harvard University. Few speeches in modern times have had as much geopolitical consequence.

In just eight paragraphs, Marshall made the case for significant US involvement in Europe’s economic reconstruction after World War II.

Within 10 months, the United States passed the Foreign Assistance Act of 1948. Better known as the Marshall Plan, it provided over $13 billion to 16 European countries (about $150 billion in 2017 dollars).

UK Thin Blue Police Line - Those Were the May Days / Politics / UK Politics

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Is it sheer hubris, or is it just incompetence? It’s a question often asked when it comes to politics. And regularly, the answer is both. Still, what the ruling British political class has put on display recently seems to exist in a category all its own. Less than a year go, then-PM David Cameron lost the Brexit referendum that he called himself and was dead sure he would win by a landslide.

His successor Theresa May, Cameron’s Home Secretary and a staunch Remain advocate, lost the Brexit vote as much as her PM did, but stayed on, was promoted, and acted for 11 months like Downing Street 10 was hers by Divine Decree. Then she did the exact same thing Cameron did: she looked at polling numbers and decided to go for the jugular: more power through a snap vote.

Here’s A Closer Look At North Korea’s Artillery Capabilities / Politics / North Korea

By: John_Mauldin

By Geopolitical Futures : As Pyongyang, Washington, and other regional players prepare for the prospect of war, North Korea’s nuclear program and ballistic missile capabilities have received undue amounts of attention. Important though they may be, they have less bearing on how the war will be fought than does North Korea’s conventional military.

Eliminating Pyongyang’s nuclear capabilities would be the first objective in a war, and indeed the justification for an attack. The second objective would be to protect South Korea from North Korean retaliation.

Liberals are losing their War of Terror on America / Politics / War on Terror

By: BATR

What do the latest London radical Islamic terrorist attacks have in common with the liberal/progressive anti-American cultural assault that has gone into extreme hyper drive with the election of Donald Trump as President? Only an apologist for the "politically correct" cancer that has infected Western Civilization would deny that allowing Wahhabism to infiltrate Europe and the US, while establishing the growing practices of Sharia law, is suicidal. Yet you will seldom see or read any criticism of the demonic Talmudic pedagogies and practices  that have corrupted and perverted any moral claim that the loony left would make. Both factions are engaged in political Armageddon, based upon a false and demented orthodoxy. They profess submission. The Wahhabi-Salafis to Allah the other acceptance of a Halakhah distortion that justifies their professed superiority.
