"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchal society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its objective is not over Eurasia or East Asia but to keep society intact." -- George Orwell From "1984"

Joe Biden Plans to Run for President in 2020

President-elect Donald J. Trump was elected less than one month ago and outgoing Vice President Joe Biden has already revealed his likely political plans for 2020.

Speaking to reporters, Biden revealed that he’s “going to run in 2020. So, uh, what the hell, man.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Stay out of small planes, Joe. Hillary wants that slot!

THE US SEEKS TO FREE ITS OFFICERS FROM THE DEATH-TRAP IN ALEPPO CITY?

US Secretary of State, John Kerry, made suggestions to Russia, which would ensure the withdrawal of “opposition forces” from eastern Aleppo.

But why does Kerry desire this?

Is this just a ploy intended to buy time for the militants to regroup and resupply?

Or is the Obama administration stalling for time to extricate US mercenaries and special service members from the Aleppo pocket?

Syria army closes in on key Aleppo district

Syrian regime forces were on the verge Tuesday of seizing a major rebel district of Aleppo as Moscow and Washington traded barbs over stalled efforts to end fighting in the battle-worn city.

After retaking control of about two-thirds of east Aleppo in recent days, forces loyal to President Bashar Assad were advancing Tuesday in the large residential district of Shaar.

Leaked Files Show U.S. Armed And Trained Both Sides of War in Yemen

Promptly after the release of more than 500 documents from the U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen, WikiLeaks explained why this particular leak matters.

“The war in Yemen has produced 3.15 million internally displaced persons,” a statement said. “Although the United States government has provided most of the bombs and is deeply involved in the conduct of the war itself,” the organization argues, western news organizations are failing to do their job by seldom informing the public of America’s involvement.

The documents were produced and exchanged during Hillary Clinton’s term as Secretary of State, as well as during the first two years of John Kerry’s tenure, ending just as the Yemen war broke out.

Because Yemen controls an area of the Middle East “through which 11 percent of the world’s petroleum passes each day,” WikiLeaks reported in the Yemen files opening page, Saudi Arabia’s interest in the country revolves around the Arabian Sea.

Scott Adams: The Non-Expert Problem and Climate Change Science

I realize that science can change its mind, of course. Saying something is “true” in a scientific sense always leaves open the option of later reassessing that view if new evidence comes to light. Something can be “true” according to science while simultaneously being completely wrong. Science allows that odd situation to exist, at least temporarily, while we crawl toward truth.

So when I say I agree with the scientific consensus on climate change, I’m endorsing the scientific consensus for the same reason I endorsed Hillary Clinton for the first part of the election – as a strategy to protect myself. I endorse the scientific consensus on climate change to protect my career and reputation. To do otherwise would be dumb, at least in my situation.

STUDENTS DEMAND "SANCTUARY" FROM IMMIGRATION LAWS, STUDENT LOAN DEBT, AND FINALS

Students at George Washington University, site of a recent walkout to demand a "sanctuary campus" to protect illegal immigrant students, say they favor defiance of other federal laws, too.

Several students said they would like to make the campus a "sanctuary" from student loan debt, while others favored exemptions from underage drinking laws.
Some students even felt they should be given a pass on final exams due to the stress of the election, explaining that "it’s really hard to focus on your studies when there’s so much else going on.”

Students across the country are asking for their schools to be “sanctuary campuses” for undocumented students, meaning university administrators would ignore federal immigration law and refuse to share information about undocumented students with immigration officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, our immigration laws are very screwed up, and need to be fixed; and an excellent education, as a means to get a good job (and defining just what those jobs will be in the 21st century), should be as important to people as is breathing.

But having said that, it is obvious that those students making these demands have never, ever had a civics course in their entire life.

Because had they taken such a course, they would understand that national laws are not a "legal buffet" from which to pick and choose; but all are to be followed, period, end of discussion.

If these students do not like these laws, particularly regarding the educational rights of illegal aliens, they should be organising to work to change those laws into laws which better reflect their perspectives in this area, and make it a national campaign.

FBI POLICY OF MANUFACTURING TERRORISM PLOTS REAFFIRMED BY APPEALS COURT

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a ruling that provides further support for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and its policy of inducing individuals, typically Muslims, to plot acts of terrorism. The appeals court additionally backed the outcome of the notorious FBI sting operation against the Newburgh Four.
Mohamed Mohamud is a young Somali American man who was convicted of attempting to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon, after he was targeted in an FBI sting operation. He is currently serving a 30-year prison sentence.

His defense appealed a district court decision that affirmed his conviction. They challenged the fact that Mohamud’s “defense of entrapment” was rejected. They also challenged a district court’s decision not to suppress information collected through surveillance under section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That these FBI stings are enabled and upheld by the court, and confirmed as a perfectly normal way for the FBI to do its business ("softening up" idiots, and getting them to go along with any hairbrained scheme in order to gain a conviction) is one sick joke, and a very interesting commentary on the very concept of justice in this country.

‘Devastated’ Madonna Breaks Down Over Trump: ‘Haven’t Had a Good Night’s Sleep’ Since Election

The 58-year-old pop icon said it felt like “someone died” after Trump defeated her preferred presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, in November.

“It felt like a ­combination of the heartbreak and betrayal you feel when someone you love more than anything leaves you, and also a death,” the singer told Billboard. “I feel that way every morning; I wake up and say, ‘Oh, wait, Donald Trump is still the president,’ and it wasn’t a bad dream that I had.”

“It feels like women betrayed us. The percentage of women who voted for Trump was insanely high,” she added, joining others who have criticized other women for voting for Trump, including actress Lena Dunham.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, how poor Madonna has suffered! See her pain! Look what you voters have done to HER!!!!!!!!

In a 1940 (election-year) speech, Roosevelt stated typically: “I have said this before, but I shall say it again and again and again: Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars.”2 But privately, the President planned just the opposite: to bring America into the World War as Britain’s ally, exactly as Woodrow Wilson had done in World War I. Roosevelt dispatched his closest advisor, Harry Hopkins, to meet Churchill in January 1941. Hopkins told Churchill: “The President is determined that we [the United States and England] shall win the war together. Make no mistake about it.

Sacrifice at Pearl Harbor tells another, hidden story - using actual recording of intercepted diplomatic communications, declassified government documents, archival footage and interviews with diplomats and spies from around the world. We now know that intelligence operatives from the US and three Allied nations monitored the Japanese fleet's progress on its deadly mission to Oahu in late 1941. Yet neither Admiral Kimmel nor General Short received a word of warning that might have allowed them to avert the sacrifice of 4,000 American casualties in less than 90 minutes.

The judiciary, media and Parliament are cynically exploited in their ruthless campaign of obstruction against the popular will.

He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I think that the beginning of European disintegration has started with Brexit.

“It is up to the other 27 governments to relaunch Europe.

“That was our policy, that was our goal as the Renzi government.

“It is clear that now Europe loses a major political actor to its relaunch.”

SSD Prices Skyrocket As NAND Shortage Deepens, HDD Shortage Looms As Components Become Scarce

We began reporting on the first signs of the looming NAND shortage all the way back in May, and have touched on the domino effect in many articles over the ensuing months as it unfolded. Now the shortage is in full swing: DRAMeXchange reported that the average price of MLC SSDs rose this quarter between 6%-10%, while TLC SSDs also rose 6%-9%. We also reached out to Trendfocus, whose projections indicate even higher price hikes at both the retail and OEM level.

To make matters worse, although HDDs unexpectedly had the biggest quarter-over-quarter recovery in seven years, according to Trendfocus, now the HDD industry is beginning to exhibit the early signs of "tightened" supply--which means there could be shortages and higher prices in that segment as well.

Lawyers: New court software is so awful it’s getting people wrongly arrested

Typically, when a judge makes a ruling—for example, issuing or rescinding a warrant—those words said by a judge in court are entered into Odyssey. That information is then relied upon by law enforcement officers to coordinate arrests and releases and to issue court summons. (Most other courts, even if they don’t use Odyssey, use a similar software system from another vendor.)

But, just across the bay from San Francisco, one of Alameda County's deputy public defenders, Jeff Chorney, says that since the county switched from a decades-old computer system to Odyssey in August, dozens of defendants have been wrongly arrested or jailed. Others have even been forced to register as sex offenders unnecessarily.

When Truth-Telling Becomes Russian Propaganda

A previous article discussed House passage of the draconian US Intelligence Authorization Act, calling it a huge leap backwards, Senate passage and Obama signing it into law virtually certain.

It aims to counter nonexistent “measures by Russia to exert covert influence, including exposing falsehoods, agents of influence, corruption, human rights abuses, terrorism and assassinations carried out by the security services or political elites of the Russian Federation or their proxies.”

It calls truth-telling by writers like myself and many others “fake news.” It threatens speech, independent media (especially online) and academic freedoms – the hallmark of a fascist dictatorship, wanting information and views contrary to official ones suppressed.

Russian FM Sergey Lavrov Calls John Kerry’s Bluff, Demands Concrete Proposals on Syria

US Secretary of State Kerry’s latest offer for all Jihadis to leave Aleppo appears to be an attempt to get the Russians to agree to a ceasefire in order to preserve the Al-Qaeda controlled pocket in eastern Aleppo until after Obama leaves the Presidency in January. However Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov called Kerry’s bluff by demanding that the US come up with concrete proposals and a definite timetable for the Jihadis’ withdrawal.

Pennsylvania GOP Slams Secretary of State for Releasing Contact Info of Electors

Pennsylvania Republicans are livid with the secretary of state's office for releasing not only the names of the state's electors, but also their home addresses and phone numbers.

The GOP is calling the move "unprecedented." Going by recent history, it certainly is. Previously, the secretary of state's office would release the names and home counties of electors. Now all of a sudden, Democratic Secretary of State Pedro A. Cortés discovered a way to release the personal contact information of electors, despite the fact the state had never done so previously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could they be any more obvious?!?

The Latest: Green Party sues for Pennsylvania vote recount

Lawyers for the Green Party have filed a lawsuit asking a federal judge to order a recount of Pennsylvania’s presidential election results.

The lawsuit was filed Monday morning in Philadelphia against state elections officials. It argues that Pennsylvania’s barriers to a recount violate voters’ constitutional rights.

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein is spearheading recount efforts in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin. Republican Donald Trump narrowly defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in all three states on his way to victory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What Stein (and Hillary) are trying to do is to tangle up Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania in Florida2000-esque legal procedures so that those states cannot send their electors to the electoral college December 19th. That will narrow Trump's lead over Hillary to where only a handful of bribed/threatened/blackmailed electors are needed to switch their votes and steal the White House for Hillary.

"Fake News" Site Threatens Washington Post With Defamation Suit, Demands Retraction

As the lawyers like to say, res ipsa loquitur. Please tweet and circulate this letter widely.

Past high profile representations include Westomoreland v. CBS and defending Linda Tripp.

I also hope, particularly for those of you who don’t regularly visit Naked Capitalism, that you’ll check out our related pieces that give more color to how the fact the Washington Post was taken for a ride by inept propagandists, particularly our introduction to our spoof PropOrNot.org site, which uses the PropOrNot project as an example of sorely deficient propaganda and shows where it went wrong, or the humor site itself.

Forget Italy, Turkey Is The Main Course

While investors are focused on Italy, Bloomberg's Mark Cudmore warns that another Mediterranean country is poised to grab their attention very soon. A currency crisis in Turkey is rapidly deteriorating, setting the stage for dramatic and unscheduled central bank action.

The lira has weakened by more than 11% in the last six weeks against an equally weighted dollar-euro basket. This devaluation is exacerbating the situation rather than providing a relief valve.

Mysterious “Thunderstorm Asthma” Now Strikes Kuwait – Hospitalizing Nearly A Thousand

So what is really going on? Is a covert, deadly substance being deliberately sprayed from planes (as governments did back in the sixties, and countless times since)? Or is is just something harmful being swept up from nearby farms and factories?

Whatever the explanation, the pattern is completely bizarre, especially since it has now happened in back to back cases, despite the fact that the phenomenon has been sparsely documented and extremely rare, to the point of being unheard of.

Stein escalates recount push in face of criticism, goes to federal court in Pennsylvania

The fight turns next to Pennsylvania, where Stein’s team said Monday they have gone to federal court to try to force a recount -- after the Green Party earlier dropped their case in state courts in the face of a required $1 million bond.

“We have no choice but to seek federal intervention,” Stein counsel Jonathan Abady said Monday, announcing the Pennsylvania filing. He called for a tabulation of paper ballots and “forensic examination” of the state’s voting machinery.

Blundering worker accidentally TURNS OFF reactor cooler at Fukushima nuclear plant for an hour when he bumps against a switch 

A nuclear worker at the Fukushima power plant almost caused another meltdown after accidentally switching off a vital cooling pump to one of its reactors.

The worker was passing through a narrow passage way when they knocked off the pump which was supplying cold water to the number three reactor - which was one of those which melted down following the 2011 earth quake and tsunami.

Internet Censorship in US and Europe Is Coordinated

Western governments are censoring speech in Europe and the US, an obvious pattern that clearly shows coordination.

In the US, there is a congressional effort to fund intel agencies that will investigate alternative media for ties to Russian propaganda. Such investigations , if they occur, will retard this sector and make further, free-reporting difficult.

In Europe, efforts to control speech and reporting are actually being aimed at American communication enterprises such as Google, YouTube and Microsoft.

DNC race heats up: Howard Dean drops out as Keith Ellison battles charges of anti-Semitism

Top Democrats and progressives appeared to be split over their reactions to an Anti-Defamation League statement that Ellison had made “disqualifying” remarks during a 2010 speech, in which he appeared to say that pro-Israel forces have a disproportionate effect on American foreign policy. The Minnesota congressman, who is Muslim, has denied having any anti-Semitic views or intentions. He has said his speech, taken as a whole, was meant to compliment the effectiveness of pro-Israel activist organizations but also to criticize certain policies of Israel with which he disagrees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Once again Israel shows the unhealthy degree of control they have over out political system. I would like to remind everyone that Ellison is NOT running for head of the Knesset!

NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK: It was a FEMA Drill to Promote Gun Control

The Sandy Hook experience has divided Americans, most of whom have been convinced by media coverage that it was a real event, where a young man massacred 20 children and six adults before killing himself.

Another substantial segment of the US population has taken a closer look at the evidence and drawn the conclusion it was a hoax, where no children really died: it was an elaborate psy-op to promote gun control.

Foreign Secretary: UK Supports Saudi Bombing of Yemen

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson sought to dismiss growing international criticism of British arms sales to Saudi Arabia amid a mounting number of civilians killed in Saudi airstrikes, insisting the UK remains “supportive” of Saudi Arabia and its bombing campaign.

Johnson goes on to insist that he doesn’t think Saudi Arabia has crossed “the threshold” for war crimes in the thousands of civilians killed i n Yemen airstrikes, though human rights groups appear more or less uniform in taking the opposite position, noting the Saudis appear to be deliberately attacking civilians across Yemen.

At the same time, Johnson sought to downplay the Britain’s direct involvement in the war, insisting that British forces are providing “general guidance” to the Saudis, but are not engaged in any involvement in picking specific targets for the Saudis to attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, really, Foreign Secretary Johnson?!?

However much the UK's defense companies are paying you to vomit this codswallop, it cannot possibly be enough.

The US and UK are complicit in Saudi Arabia's war crimes, sir, by selling them the weapons with which civilians are assassinated; schools and hospitals are targeted; and children are slowly and painfully starving to death, courtesy of the Saudi blockade of all Yemeni port cities.

And you don't think think Saudi Arabia has crossed “the threshold” for war crimes in the thousands of civilians killed in Yemen airstrikes?!?!?

Allow me, sir, to disabuse you of that notion, and right the hell now:

Yemeni children killed and wounded in Saudi airstrikes, 2016

140 killed in a Saudi "double tap" strike at Yemeni funeral

Images: Yemeni children starving and dying, due to Saudi Arabia's bombings and naval blockade

If you are in any way a moral human being, you cannot, possibly, look at these images without a sense of disgust and disbelief; unfortunately, however, I have learned, over the years, that most politicians have their consciences surgically removed before holding office, so very possibly, you won't feel a thing, looking at these horrific images.

The numbers, in terms of civilian casualties, are right here:

As of September 2nd of this year, there have been 10,000 civilian casualties

There are also numbers on childhood malnutrition, via Voice of America:

320,000 children at risk of severe acute malnutrition.

How in the name of sanity can you possibly tell your brother and sister Brits, and the world, for that matter, with a straight face, that these numbers do not cross the "threshold" for war crimes?!?

So, congratulations are in order; you really "sold" this Saudi genocide of the Yemeni people to the British government, and I am sure that the British defense companies who fund you, overtly or covertly, are just delighted with you.

Because after all, in the UK, just as in the US, it's "profits uber alles", right?!? And we can't let a little thing like "war crimes" get in the way of profits, now, can we?!?

And by the way, how does it feel to be a war criminal, Foreign Secretary Johnson?!?

Another foot of snow forecast ... in Hawaii

Another foot of snow could fall on Hawaii's highest mountain peaks, on top of the 2 feet already dumped there since Thursday, the National Weather Service said.

What is interesting is that normally the snow falls at a lower elevation leaving the peaks bare, because the peaks are higher than most clouds. Getting three feet of snow at the peak suggests even more snow lower down.

Italy’s Boot Was Made for Walkin’ … Away from the EU

"These Boots Were Made for Walkin'" - That’s the theme song for the most boot-shaped country in Italy, and to paraphrase Nancy Sinatra, one of these days that boot is going to walk right out of the EU.

The European Union is collapsing. First, the UK voted to leave, and now, Italy is about to head for the exit as well. While this may seem like incidents of little importance to us here in the US, it has the potential to affect us financially, and in a colossal way.

The No-Win Debt Disaster Caused by Obama’s Epic Game of Economic Kick-the-Can

The US has been on the brink of economic doom for quite a while now. Some people like to credit President Barack Obama for “saving us” from economic disaster, but in reality, he played the most epic game of kick-the-can ever during his 8 years in office.

You could compare his financial policy to a person who loses his job but has incredibly good credit.

That person could potentially manage to put his entire life on credit and get by for quite some time. Maybe he taps into his line of credit at the bank, he buys groceries and pays utilities with credit cards, and he borrows money against his house.

But finally, it comes to a point when he has no credit left. He has extended himself to the point that there is nothing available. Peter refuses to be robbed anymore, which means Paul isn’t getting paid.

That was the financial strategy of Barack Obama, and now Donald Trump will inherit a no-win situation: massive debt in the trillions of dollars with nothing to back it up...

Muckrock has been sending Freedom of Information requests to state police forces to find out how they're using "cell-site simulators" (AKA IMSI catchers/Stingrays), and they hit the motherlode with the Virginia State Police. The VSP documents show that the force bought a $585,265 phone-spying device -- which came with its own modified Chevy Suburban as a kind of mobile casemod -- that they used 12 times, and which failed 4 times, meaning that the Virginia taxpayers were spending $50,000/use for a tool that failed two thirds of the time.

Proposed 'Anti-Semitism Awareness Act' is an Unconstitutional Mess

Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) have introduced the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act which according to a statement on Casey's website is meant to "to ensure the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) has the necessary statutory tools at their disposal to investigate anti-Jewish incidents" on college campuses.

Citing a recent FBI report stating over half of all reported hate crimes in 2015 were of an anti-Semitic nature, the senators claim their bill is necessary to provide the DOE with the "firm guidance" it needs to determine "what constitutes anti-Semitism."

Seemingly shoe-horned into the end of the senators' statement is this line:

This act is not meant to infringe on any individual right protected under the First Amendment of the Constitution.

That's a relief, because someone reading the details of the bill who possesses a basic understanding of constitutionally protected speech would likely see it differently.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm a Christian pacifist activist, who on occasion, does criticize the Israeli government for things I believe will, ultimately, hurt both their citizens and the Palestinians. I am no "hater"; I just want to see justice done, for all peoples of the earth, and all governments taking the morally responsible "high ground" in their negotiations with other other countries.

But when you look at the apartheid theocracy Israel has become, (and when a guy like South African Bishop Desmond Tutu makes that observation, he knows what he is talking about!), one has to shake one's head in despair, and ask: was this the way the founders of the Israeli nation envisioned their country in the 21st century?!?

But if Israel wants to see a change in the world's attitude toward it, and the antagonism it receives for its choices, which sometime translates in the US as "hate crimes" against American Jews,the cold, hard reality is, they are going to have to change their behaviour toward, and treatment of, the Palestinians.

That will go one heck of a way toward ratcheting down the tensions there as well in the US.

I am against any hatred or bigotry based on faith or ethnicity, period, end of discussion; however, hate cannot be legislated against, because that will not truly resolve the problem.

Kerry tells Israeli right: You're deliberately sabotaging peace process

US Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday accused right-wing Israelis of deliberately thwarting efforts to broker a peace deal with the Palestinians.

In unusually stark terms, Washington's top diplomat warned that Israeli settlement building was undermining any hope of an agreement to allow two states to live side-by-side.

At the Saban Forum, an annual gathering of senior Israeli and US policymakers, Kerry said some members of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government had made "profoundly disturbing" statements.

"And more than 50 percent of the ministers in the current government have publicly stated they are opposed to a Palestinian state and that there will be no Palestinian state," he said.

UN Agrees to Stop Reporting Iraqi Casualties After Military Complains

Following complaints from the Iraqi government, the United Nations has agreed to stop recording casualty figures for the ISIS war in Iraq, meaning that November’s report of 1,959 deaths among Iraqi security forces will be the last deaths you’ll be hearing about from them.

Iraqi Army officials claimed the figure was an “exaggeration,” though they’ve offered no death tolls of their own for the fighting. They further accused the UN report of hurting morale by making the death toll known.

Sec Def: US Must Stay in Iraq After ISIS War

For a war which President Obama promised would involve “no boots on the ground,” the ISIS war in Iraq has involved a substantial deployment of ground troops, some 6,000 by most reckonings. Even as officials present ISIS as nearly defeated in Iraq, the US military presence looks to be more or less permanent.

That was the message from Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who insisted that ISIS was heading for “lasting defeat,” but that the US and the rest of its coalition need to keep their troops engaged militarily in Iraq even after this, presenting this as a “sustained” operation.

Carter’s talk of an “enduring presence” in Iraq appears to be in keeping with a lot of officials in the Obama Administration, though with just a month left in office the decision on US troop levels “post-ISIS” will be left to President-elect Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A permanent US presence in Iraq?!?

Cop Charged With Manslaughter In Concealed Carry Motorist's Death Was Trained By DHS, FBI, U.S. Secret Service, & National Guard

Officer Jeromino Yanez is being charged with manslaughter for the killing of motorist Philando Castile in Minnesora last July. Official police archives reveal that the St. Anthony police department has recieved funding and training from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for over a decade at least, and their website states that their officers are also trained by the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, and the National Guard. A St. Anthony P.D. bulletin from 2007 notes "the team is trained to operate and be successful in pre-empting a terrorist attack. To this end, officers have undergone extensive training and have been equipped with specialized gear. The equipment and training received has been funded by homeland security and domestic preparedness grants." The current sheriff of the County went to Washington, D.C. last year to ask for more funding for local law enforcement agencies. [See what it gets us? 7 bullets in the chest for nothing!!]

As we noted last night, when we previewed the virtually assured "No" vote, we said that "a strong “No” vote will cause Prime Minister Renzi to resign, leading to political instability in Italy. Furthermore, a "No" vote is expected to kill a long-running attempt to rescue Italy's third largest and oldest bank, Monte dei Paschi, which has been desperate for a private sector bailout ever since it failed this summer's ECB stress test to avoid broader banking sector contagion; a failure of Monte Paschi will likely spark a fresh eurozone banking crisis, and prompt the ECB to get involved again (as it warned it would do), in a redux of what happened after the Brexit vote."
