Bad for Business: How KYC/AML Makes Everyone a “Terrorist”

By Graham Smith

Two reports from risk solutions group Lexisnexis assert that anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) policies can negatively affect a business’s bottom line and customer service significantly. A recent trip to the local post office for a money order certainly had a negative effect on my own experience, thanks to the same regulations, which make paying customers feel like they are suspected terrorists just for doing business.

Everyone’s a Suspect

A recent visit to my local post office here in Japan, to get a simple USD money order for a passport, opened my eyes to just how far the KYC/AML freight train has already progressed...

Beijing Demands $2.4BN In Sanctions Against US Over Obama-Era WTO Complaint

In an unrelated case before the WTO that dates back to the Obama era and has nothing to do with the US-China trade beef, Beijing is seeking $2.4 billion in retaliatory sanctions against the US for non-compliance with a WTO ruling, Reuters reports.

Gas Prices Expected to Rise in 2020—Thanks to an Obscure UN Regulator

By Ross Marchand

With gasoline prices in California eclipsing $4/gallon, Americans have taken to nervously glancing at their gas gauges. Oil prices appear to only be going in one direction (up), with dramatic disruptions such as a drone attack on Saudi refineries disrupting fuel supplies. But things may soon get far worse if the International Maritime Organization (IMO), a sub-agency of the United Nations, implements onerous worldwide restrictions on fuel content...

How Entrepreneurs Discover Market Opportunities Through Dissatisfaction

By Raushan Gross

Entrepreneurs are sensitive to consumer dissatisfaction, seek to create new products and/or services to satisfy consumers, and use capital to bring their ideas to market. Consumers then vote their satisfaction of the product or service by their spending.

Entrepreneurs attempt to solve problems, add value, or make things more efficient.

Alertness to entrepreneurial opportunities calls for a particular set of attributes...

Secret NATO Military Exercises in Germany Drill Nuclear War Scenario – Report

The reported war games are being held a few months after the collapse of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty between Russia and the US, which was prompted by Washington’s move to withdraw from the accord on 2 August.

NATO allies are holding secret military exercises in Germany, which aim to drill a nuclear war scenario, the German newspaper Kronen Zeitung reports.

During the drills, codenamed “Steadfast Noon”, the military personnel utilise warplanes which could be equipped with nuclear weapons in the event of a war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of heaven are the US political classes planning Armageddon for the rest of us, who do not have "panic bunkers", rather than attempting to ratchet down tensions with Russia, which could mean peace and prosperity for a lot of people around the world?!?

Because, in a few words, we are completely expendable to them, other than as cannon fodder.

Russia understands what happens when war is on their doorstep; most Americans have absolutely zero connection with the American Civil War, so their only connection to war are the "sanitized" bits of footage and soundbites they get from their television, if it ever gets discussed by the talking head/Corporatistas at all.

And for me, all wars represent "a catastrophic failure of imagination" when other modalities for conflict resolution are not employed.

Getting Out Of Foreign Wars: Next Up, Ukraine?

Authored by Doug Bandow via The American Conservative blog,

Recently Ukraine has been thrown into the spotlight as Democrats gear up to impeach President Donald Trump. More important, though, is its role in damaging America’s relations with Russia, which has resulted in a mini-Cold War that the U.S. needs to end.

In 2014, Washington and European governments backed a street putsch against the elected, though highly corrupt, pro-Russian president, Viktor Yanukovych. The Putin government responded by annexing Crimea and backing separatist forces in Eastern Ukraine’s Donbass region. Washington and Brussels imposed economic sanctions on Russia and provided military aid to Kiev.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Annexing Crimea"?!? Sir, let's stop with the codswallop, because it has become far too much to swallow. And President Obama admitted to the US role in this Ukrainian putsch during a televised interview:

Obama admists that the US government brokered a deal in support of Regime Change in Ukraine

Apparently, you have utterly no grasp of what really happened, after Poroshenko was "anointed" as Ukraine's geopolitical "saviour" in 2014.

The people in Crimea knew that there would be no decency, or real representation in government coming out of Kiev (you do know what country of which the city is capital, don't you?!?) forthcoming for a long time to come. So this is what the people of Crimea did:

1. In a fair and honest referendum, the Crimean government asked its people if it wanted to stay with Ukraine, or leave it, after the "election" to install Poroshenko. Overwhelmingly, Crimea voted to leave Ukraine, and request that the Russian Federation allow Crimea to return to as a member of the Russian Federation.

2. Here is the BBC article on this; had you actually done your homework, and researched this intelligently (which you obviously did not), you would have realized that this was a documented referendum, and a documented return to Russia as a choice by the Crimean people

And I would like to add here, that "peaceful self-determination" is one of the most critically important portions of the UN charter, to which both Russia and the US are also a signatory./ Crimea referendum: Voters 'back Russia union' Russia then accepted them as full members of the Russian Federation; there was no "annexation" whatsoever, period, end of discussion.

China's $3.6 Billion Bailout Insulates Turkey From US

Authored by 'Spengler' via The Asia Times,

Beijing’s biggest support package ever for President Erdogan arrives at a critical time...

Despite the US threat to “obliterate and destroy” Turkey’s economy, the Turkish lira and Turkish interest rates barely have budged in the past week (Turkish stocks, especially banks, are down sharply, in part due to the US criminal charges against Halkbank for aiding Iran sanctions violations). That is remarkable given the fragility of Turkey’s currency earlier in 2019. Between February and May, the Turkish lira fell from 5.2 to the US dollar to 6.2 in response to US sanctions, before recovering to 5.88 to the dollar today. The Turkish central bank leaned on Turkish banks to refrain from offering liquidity to short-sellers, but Turkish money markets remained orderly.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China makes deals; the US threatens with wars and impossible to maintain sanctions.

What's wrong with this picture?!? Damned near everything.

Winners and Losers in the Turkish Attack on Syria. Russia is the Most Successful Player

Russia imposed the Astana process instead of Geneva for peace talks, it offered countries to use their local currencies for commerce rather than the dollar, and it is dealing pragmatically with Iran and Saudi Arabia, and with Assad and Erdogan. The Americans, by their recklessness, showed themselves incapable of diplomacy.

Moscow mediated between the Syrian Kurds and the central government in Damascus even when these had been under US control for years. Putin behaved wisely with Israel even when he accused Tel Aviv of provoking the killing of his officers, and stayed relatively neutral in relation to the Iran-Israel struggle.

On the other hand, Tel Aviv never thought Syria would be reunited. Today Damascus has armed drones, precision and cruise missiles from Iran, supersonic anti-ship Russian missiles- and has survived the destruction of its infrastructure and so many years of war.

US Military Unlikely To Withdraw From Syria's Key Oil Fields: Report

Via AlmasdarNews.com,

The U.S. Armed Forces are not withdrawing from the eastern Euphrates River Valley region of Deir Ezzor or its plethora of oil fields, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the U.S. Armed Forces won’t withdraw from these areas because of Iran’s presence in eastern Syria and the reality that Damascus would again have access to Deir Ezzor’s vital oil fields.

He would add the United States' two largest military bases in Syria are in the east near some of the country’s largest oil fields like Al-Omar.

Damascus has wanted the Al-Omar and Conoco oil fields to be returned to their government; however, with the U.S.’ large military presence in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, they have found themselves blocked from these critical petrol supplies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the US government and military believes they are going to occupy Syria's oil fields forever?!?

How many have actually been withdrawn, or will withdraw from Syria, ahead of a major Turkish onslaught ?!? Were I a betting person, I would say, darned few.

State Department Concludes Clinton Email Review, Says It Found Nearly 600 Security Violations

State Department investigators probing Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state discovered nearly 600 security incidents that violated agency policy, according to a report the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained.

The investigation, conducted by the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, found 38 individuals were culpable for 91 security violations. Another 497 violations were found, but no individuals were found culpable in those incidents.

The investigation concluded Sept. 6, and the report was issued Sept. 13.

The investigation sought to determine if the exchange of emails on Clinton’s server “represented failure to properly safeguard classified information” and whether any individuals at State were culpable for any of the failures. (RELATED: State Department Reboots Hillary Clinton Email Probe)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"NO PERSUASIVE EVIDENCE...." MY ASTROLABE!!

This "alleged" inquiry was stage managed from the get-go, and a desired conclusion was reached in precisely the way the Clintonistas wanted it to be reached, which translated as absolutely no charges could, or would, be levelled against her.

Southwest Pilots Slam Boeing "Fraud... Put Flying Public At Risk"

Update (1415ET): Boeing shares have accelerated lower as more details of the 'smoking gun' messages comes out.

A Boeing test pilot complained in one of the messages that a flight control system, known as MCAS, was difficult to control, according to the messages, obtained by NBC News.

“It’s running rampant in the sim on me”, the pilot, Mark Forkner, Boeing’s former chief technical pilot, said in 2016 to a colleague, referring to the simulator, according to the transcript. “Granted, I suck at flying, but even this was egregious.”

His colleague replied that they would have to update the description of the system.

“So I basically lied to regulators (unknowingly),” read Forkner’s reply. Forkner did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

And now Southwest Pilots Union has come out swinging, confirming that Mark Forkner is a Southwest aviator and blasting Boeing for "misleading" the FAA, saying that Boeing's "fraud" put "the flying public at risk."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the "bottom line" of a company trump's the travelling public's' safety, this is the moment when the CEOS who signed off on not getting this flaw reversed need to be tried; convicted; and sentenced to hard time at a NOT Club Fed.

Complicated Web Of Payments Behind Hunter Biden's $700K Ukraine, China Dealings Untangled

For months it has been reported, here and elsewhere, that Hunter Biden 'made $50,000 per month sitting on the board Ukrainian gas giant Burisma.'

The truth behind payments to Biden is much more complicated, as revealed by the Daily Caller's Andrew Kerr who reviewed bank records submitted in an unrelated criminal case involving Biden's friend and business partner, Devon Archer in which Archer was found guilty of defrauding an American Indian Tribe (a conviction which was later overturned).

So - Burisma did not directly pay Hunter, although the firm's chairman, Alan Apter told the Wall Street Journal in 2014 that Biden (and Archer) would receive a salary for their independent directorship.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, those privileges which accompany nepotism are things most most of us working folks would never dream of doing, even in our wildest imaginations!!

Use threatened financial geopolitical blackmail to get a top Ukrainian prosecutor fired for his "crime" of starting to lead an investigation into Burisma, where Hunter Biden was one of their executives on the board?!?

NO PROBLEM!!

And Tom Perez and his minions really believe that former Vice-President Biden is a "good call" for a Democratic nominee for President of the United States and leader of the "allegedly" Free World?!?

Tom, Tom, Tom, please, for God's sake; can't someone from your office talk to Biden about how he needs to stand down, and "spend more time with his family"?!?

I mean, isn't that the standard line trotted out every time a politician has actually been compromised with just a little more than a "hint of taint" concerning how they have used their privilege?!?!?

I mean, Biden actually bragged about it, right?!?

Video: Biden brags that he got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired, for one billion dollars in US aid

Now Tom, unless you, and your candidates' handlers are absolutely of one mind in the opinion that all US voters are victims of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder, or/and SMDD (severe memory deficit disorder), and you let this guy run as your Presidential Candidate, you know precisely what Republicans are going to do; they are going to run this video again; and again; and again; so that even the most simple-minded of voters will "get it".

And the "IT" to which I refer, is the reality Biden is one of the worst "con jobs" to have ever taken the Oath of Office as Vice-President, and is willing to do ANYTHING to keep himself, and his family "rolling in influence" (like attempted financial blackmail of a foreign government) to enable them to continue "rolling in the dough".

There is a "V" word that you and the DNC need to heavily contemplate before this next campaign cycle; that word is "Values", Tom.

And when we have a party which desperately tried to impeach President Trump even before he was sworn in, with Russiagate; and now the phone call regarding "Ukrainegate"; and is exploring ways to get him out of office before the next election, using the 25th Amendment to the Constitution before the November 2020 election, what are you saying about Democratic Party Values to the rank-and-file voter with these actions?!?

The short answer is, the Democratic Party has no values at all, except "winning" at all costs, with no moral considerations concerning their actions will do to this country whatsoever.

Is this the way you, and the current configuration of the DNC, really want to be judged by history, Tom?!?

I'm just saying.... please think about it.

America's Road Map To $40 Trillion National Debt By 2028

Watch out! At this very moment, professional economists of all stripes are making plans on your behalf. They’re dreaming and scheming new and innovative ways to spend your money long before you’ve earned it.

While you’re busy at the gristmill, grinding away for clients and customers, claims are being laid upon your life. Your future earnings are being directed to boondoggles galore. Yet these claims are in addition to everything Washington’s already signed you up for.

The reality is the growth of federal debt has been out of control for decades. The solution that’s always repeated for reeling this back is that, somehow, the economy will grow its way out of it. This has yet to transpire despite a variety of policies over the years that have generally involved borrowing money from the future and spending it today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, but the way many of these "Econonozillas" think, just scares the stuffing right out of me, and has me wondering, very seriously, if they have ever had to balance a checking account.

Why, in the name of heaven, is it terrible for a person, or a family, to be in horrific debt, but it is perfectly acceptable for a government to do so, for these folks?!?

Sorry, but "Don't fret about the Debt" is yet more "magical thinking", which will ultimately assist in putting this country right down the economic commode, with one gigantic flush.

The Chaos Of Baltimore Explained, How The Descent Into Hell Continues

By now, you should already know that Baltimore City is imploding on itself. The housing market has stalled, millennials are trapped in overpriced rowhomes, and widespread violent crime has taken over the region.

The deteriorating situation in Baltimore is nothing new. It started in the late 1950s when deindustrialization began, and white flight of the 1960s/70s/80s sent hundreds of thousands of Baltimoreans packing their bags for the suburbs. From the late 1950s to let's say today, the city's population has collapsed from 960,000 to around 600,000.

The city is a hollow out shell of something that was great, and also is an accurate depiction of our country at the moment.

Violent crime in the city spiked during the 1980s and surged even more during the crack epidemic of the 1990s. But a revival was in the making by the mid-2000s (violent crime dipped and a housing boom began), it was the millennials, who picked up the broken baton and wanted to revive Baltimore.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a story which pairs nicely with what exists above, from August of this year, and may, potentially, carry some hope for this embattled city:

Baltimore hasn’t elected a Republican mayor since the 1960s. Meet the people trying to change that.

Japan To Send Its Own Military Force To Strait Of Hormuz

Ever since the new round of 'tanker wars' began in Strait of Hormuz in mid-June with a mysterious mine attack on multiple tankers, one involving a Japanese-owned ship, Tokyo has reportedly mulled sending a Japanese defense force to the area to help protect vital shipping lanes.

In a rare move, the pacifist nation appears ready to pull the trigger, as FT reports, citing chief cabinet secretary, Yoshihide Suga, who indicated that "the government was planning to deploy forces in a region where a Japanese tanker, the Kokuka Courageous, was recently attacked with a limpet mine."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the Japanese government does move forward with this action, that moment in time may, most probably, just barely be in front of "excrement hitting the ventilator" at warp speed, in terms of some kind of hot altercation between the US government; Israel; and Iran.

Office Vacancies In China Hit Decade High Amid Economic Turmoil

A darkening outlook for China's economy continues to materialize week by week.

New data from commercial property group CBRE warns the country's office vacancy rate has just surged to the highest since the financial crisis of 2007–2008, first reported by Bloomberg.

CBRE said the vacancy rate for commercial office space in 17 major cities rose to 21.5% in 3Q19, a level not seen since the global economy was melting down in 2008.

Sam Xie, CBRE's head of research in China, said the recent "spike" in vacancies is one of the worst since the last financial crisis.

6 Warning Signs That Civil Unrest Is Imminent

Authored by J.G.Martinez D. via The Organic Prepper blog,

This week has been “interesting” in South America. Interesting, indeed, but as in the ancient Chinese curse style.

Here are 6 signs that civilian unrest is impending or already occurring.
The first sign, of course, is bad looks when you walk on the street.

The second sign, perhaps this is more subtle, when you see people that normally would be polite or indifferent, as a minimum, starts to look at you in sort of aggressive manner.

The third sign, of course, is people disappearing off the streets.

The fourth sign is (obviously) Law Enforcement Officials (LEOs) presence in massive amounts in the streets.

The fifth sign in modern times would be (because in the demonstrations the uniforms used it massively to identify potential groups as a target) drones flying close to some blockage or LEOs control point.

The sixth sign, and the last one, is when you start seeing people wearing a single color.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The time you have to think about these kinds of actions happening where you are, should far before they even seem to happening, and learning to make conscious decisions about what you would be comfortable doing, and what you would not be comfortable doing.

Only keep enough money in the bank to pay the bills; think about picking up some food and how you will create potable water, if you are thinking that some civil disorder may be coming, and make sure that you have additional meds, if you and the family are going to need them.

Civil unrest can absolutely go to hell in a handbasket, and breathtakingly quickly.

Find out who in your community you feel you can work with, barter with, and protect you, your family, and theirs, if things get ugly.

Drilling Giant Posts $11 Billion Loss

The fracking shale oil boom has about run it's course.

The world’s largest oilfield services provider, Schlumberger (NYSE:SLB), reported on Friday a net loss of US$11.38 billion for the third quarter, compared to a US$644-million profit for Q3 2018, after a hefty pretax charge of US$12.7 billion weighed on the most recently reported results.

“This quarter’s results reflected a macro environment of slowing production growth rate in North America land as operators maintained capital discipline, reducing drilling and frac activity,” Le Peuch said.

As early as the second quarter of this year, Schlumberger warned investors of the weakness on the North American oil services market, as land investment drops because of the cash flow constraints of E&P operators. Competitor Halliburton also admitted then that the North American onshore drilling market has become “challenging.”

Who Needs Missiles, Anyway? Bird Takes Down US Navy 'Doomsday' Aircraft

Despite the considerable expenses incurred by this incident, no one aboard the plane was injured, and the aircraft itself has since returned to service.

A E-6B Mercury belonging to the US Navy and assigned to Air Test and Evaluation Squadron 20 at Maryland-based Naval Air Station Patuxent River ended up sustaining at least $2 million in damages and was left temporarily grounded after being hit by a bird.

According to Navy Times, the plane, which serves as an airborne command and control post, and which connects US nuclear forces to the president and the secretary of defence, sustained damage after a yet unknown species of avian got sucked into one of its four engines when the aircraft was performing a touch and go landing on 2 October.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The following headline gives one just a little more perspective on the issue:
The US Navy Doomsday-plane, suffers millions of dollars, thanks to bird strike

The $141 million 'doomsday' plane was landing at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station in Maryland when a bird was sucked into one of its four engines
No one was injured in the incident on October 2, but the damage amounted to at least $2million."

So let me get my head around this, please; the Americans pay $141 million per fighter jet plane, which is engineered to fend of Armageddon, but cannot handle a bird strike?!?

And of course, the company manufacturing this is.....Boeing.

So please, Dennis A. Muilenburg, Boeing CEO, please explain how your staff of engineers can put up something that can withstand a nuclear strike, but not a bird strike?!?

The tax-paying citizens of this country are very keen to know, sir.

Russia Ready To Seize Control Of The World's Largest Oil Reserves

The Venezuelan government is readying to hand over control over state oil company PDVSA to Russia’s Rosneft, a local newspaper has reported, citing sources from the industry.

Russian TASS reports, quoting El Nacional, that the radical move is being discussed as a way of erasing Caracas’ debt to Moscow. The debt is sizeable: at the end of June this year, money owed to Rosneft alone stood at $1.1 billion. That’s down from $1.8 billion at end-March.

Two years ago, Caracas and Moscow sealed a deal for the restructuring of another $3.15 billion debt to Russia over 10 years with minimum payments over the first six years. Since 2006, Russian loans to Venezuela have reached more than $17 billion in total.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Once this handover has been established, I would almost be willing to bet on one thing; that there will be no use of American funds with which to buy Venezuelan oil, period, end of discussion, anymore.

3 Polls Show Majority Of Americans Now Support Impeachment As Constitutional Crisis Looms

Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

The mainstream media is relentlessly trying to convince the American people that President Trump did something wrong, and to a certain degree it appears to be working.

As you will see below, 3 major polls have found that a majority of Americans now support impeachment. But according to the U.S. Constitution, President Trump cannot be impeached unless he is convicted of a crime.

Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution sets a very high standard for impeachment:

“The President, Vice President and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This guy has absolutely nailed the issue here, so the question must be put to these Constitution-assassinating morons, as to what specifically President Trump has done for which he qualifies for Congressional impeachment.

The short answer, of course, absolutely nothing.

Tom Arnold Aims JFK Assassination Tweet At Trump

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News.

'Actor' Tom Arnold raised the prospect of another JFK-style assassination after Trump arrived in Dallas, Texas for an event at the American Airlines Center last night.

After Trump tweeted a video of the huge crowd that awaited him with the words, “Just arrived at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Will be out shortly as we wait for more of you to get in! #TRUMP2020,” Arnold responded with a veiled threat.

“Don’t get too cocky traitor. They showed up for JFK too,” he tweeted.

The meaning of the tweet wasn’t hard to deduce given what happened to JFK in Dallas 56 years ago.

Twitter later removed the tweet saying it violated their rules, but Arnold’s account is still active.

Other Twitter users also flagged the tweet to the Secret Service, with one commenting, “This imbecile is threatening the President of the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tom (probably out of work for him too long to realize the magnitude of the threat he just made against the President Trump) Arnold needs for someone who actually cares about him, to get him some professional help, and pronto!!

Although I have massively, (peacefully) and vocally disagreed with much of what President Trump has done, what Arnold is doing with this very public threat, is make the possibility of this actually happening increase, most probably by some well-programmed (and most likely drugged, or just getting off the drugs), Manchurian candidate who will, of course, be identified as the "lone-nut assassin", but who is anything but.

Trump Claims European Nations Will Take Back ISIS Prisoners

Following reports that several high-value ISIS prisoners and their families had escaped Kurdish detention facilities during the chaos that has dominated northeastern Syria over the past week, President Trump tweeted Friday afternoon that he had convinced several of his European partners to accept responsibility for ISIS members in the custody of Syria's Kurds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, but I cannot for a moment believe this, until President Trump has named names of European leadership who have committed to this, and it is then confirmed by their individual press offices.

Waste in America: Statistics and facts on food & water

According to America's Second Harvest, over 41 billion pounds of food have been wasted this year (www.secondharvest.org).

According to a 2004 study from the University of Arizona (UA) in Tucson (http://www.foodnavigator-usa.com/news/ng.asp?id=56376), on average, American households waste 14 percent of their food purchases.

Fifteen percent of that includes products still within their expiration date but never opened. Timothy Jones, an anthropologist at the UA Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology who led the study, estimates an average family of four currently tosses out $590 per year, just in meat, fruits, vegetables and grain products. Nationwide, Jones says, household food waste alone adds up to $43 billion, making it a serious economic problem.

In a new report by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) entitled “Global Financial Stability Report: Lower for Longer,” the group gives an overview of the current debt-ridden and precarious state of affairs in global economics. Not lost on some economists, however, is the irony that these modern realities are the direct result of policies historically supported by the IMF itself...

The Cult of Feminism & Its Fabrication of History

The majority of women pre-feminism were in loving relationships where they were taken care of by men who worked very hard. These men were vetted rigorously by the young woman’s mother and father to ensure he was of noble character and worldly means. Their fathers were not spousally raping their mothers on a whim and nor were they selling off their daughters to the nearest salacious man for a goat and three oxen. Women were not the sex objects they have become today: the sluts of marketing, the prostitutes of job promotion and the eager cum buckets of wealthy male harems. Instead they were respectable people: mothers, wives and supportive members of their local community.

United States imposes record $7.5 billion in tariffs on European goods

With the blessing from the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Trump administration imposed punitive tariffs on EU goods on Friday in retaliation for the European plane maker Airbus receiving illegal subsidies.

The US measures include duties of 10 percent on Airbus planes and 25 percent on agricultural products like French wine, Italian cheese and Scotch whisky.

French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire criticized the move hours before the tariffs were due to come into effect. "We, Europeans, will take similar sanctions in a few months, maybe even harsher ones — within the framework of the WTO — to retaliate to these US sanctions," he said.
