When interest rates rise, borrowing money becomes more expensive and economic activity slows down.

For the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates right now is absolutely insane. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s most recent projection, GDP growth for the first quarter of 2017 is supposed to be an anemic 1.2 percent. Personally, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if we actually ended up with a negative number for the first quarter.

As Donald Trump has explained in detail, the U.S. economy is a complete mess right now, and we are teetering on the brink of a new recession.

So why in the world would the Fed raise rates unless they wanted to hurt Donald Trump?

Raising rates also threatens to bring on a new housing crisis. Interest rates were raised prior to the subprime mortgage meltdown in 2007 and 2008, and now we could see history repeat itself. When rates go higher, it becomes significantly more difficult for families to afford mortgage payments…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such a rise in interest rates right now is nothing short of an attempted financial, and political, crucifixion of President Trump, and this is quite deliberate, on the part of both Janet Yellen, and the American Deep State.

Obama lawyers move fast to join fight against Trump

When Johnathan Smith resigned from the U.S. Justice Department on Inauguration Day, he looked forward to spending time with his infant son, but that plan unraveled a week later when President Donald Trump unveiled his explosive foreign travel ban.

Within two weeks, Smith had a new job as legal director of civil rights group Muslim Advocates and was drafting briefs for a successful court challenge to the ban, joining other former top Obama administration lawyers now fighting Trump.

The war of words between Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and far-right populist Geert Wilders exploded in a face to face debate on Monday as Wilders called on Rutte to close the Netherlands’ borders.

“You are being taken hostage by [Turkish President] Erdogan. Close the Dutch borders,” Wilders told his top rival, Rutte, during the 30-minute televised debate.

“That’s a totally fake solution,” Rutte retorted, hitting back at Wilders’ suggestion that the Dutch borders should be shut.

“You want Nexit, you want the Netherlands out of Europe. You know what it will cost… don’t do it,” he warned.

If the Netherlands were to leave the EU, it would be “the best thing that could happen to us,” Wilders argued.

Rutte responded that a “Nexit” would cost 1.5 million jobs and trigger “chaos.”

“What we have to do to protect our borders is not make agreements with people like Mr. Erdogan,” Wilders said, referring to the European Union’s migrant deal with Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The palpable anger from many Europeans on the effects of unchecked immigration, resulting in many cases, in physical assaults on Europe's women, coupled with a vast lessening of the quality of their lives, may well result in both Wilders' electoral triumph in Holland, Le Pen's electoral victory in France.

The existing governments of these countries have earned the change-up, by not thinking the ultimate effects of such immigration through, as has Germany.

Turkey's determination against Kurds alienates US, Russia

Turkey achieved a milestone in its goals in Syria: It established a foothold in the heart of the country's north after driving Islamic State militants away from its borders and seizing al-Bab, one of the extremist group's major strongholds and a major supply route.

But Turkey's determination to also push back the Kurds is alienating the other big players in Syria — Russia and the United States — and threatens to undermine the fight against IS in the imminent assault on Raqqa.

The Empire’s Fifth Column in Africa: Morocco

In 1984 Morocco turned it’s back on Africa because the Organisation of African Unity refused to support it’s 1975 conquest of Western Sahara. For the next few decades Morocco followed the example of apartheid Israel and looked only towards Europe and America. Morocco, for example, applied (and failed) to join the European Economic Community in 1987. While today (since 2008) it is considered an “advanced” EU neighbour. And militarily it became a NATO partner in 1994 and a major non-NATO US ally in 2004.

Morocco in other words did everything it could to be an honorary white man: it shamelessly raped part of Africa and looked down on the black man. And the white man rewarded it by investing in it.

North Korea: The Grand Deception Revealed

In 2003 I had, along with some American lawyers, members of the National Lawyers Guild, the good fortune to be able to travel to North Korea, that is the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea, in order to experience first hand that nation, its socialist system and its people. The joint report issued on our return was titled “The Grand Deception Revealed.” That title was chosen because we discovered that the negative western propaganda myth about North Korea is a grand deception designed to blind the peoples of the world to the accomplishments of the Korean people in the north who have successfully created their own circumstances, their own independent socio-economic system, based on socialist principles, free of the domination of the western powers.

Last August, he invaded northern Syria, his aggression code-named Operation Euphrates Shield – aiding anti-government forces, combating Kurdish YPG fighters, not terrorists.

His forces seized Jarabulus in northwestern Syria straightaway, continued advancing east.

Last November, he said his goal is gaining control over “5,000 square km (1,900 square miles) including al-Bab, Manbij and Tell Rifaat, creating a national structure and army for this expanded area to provide solid control and to allow the refugees return to these areas jointly with EU, and after these, focusing on IS’s de facto capital Raqqa and” YPG Kurdish fighters.

In late November, he said he launched cross-border military operations “to end the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.” Days later, he retracted his statement. He can’t undo what he said.

Sunni politician warns U.S. of mounting civilian casualties in Mosul

Khamis Khanjar, who has used his leverage to lobby the U.S. administration and the Iraqi authorities to ensure the major campaign in Mosul minimises civilian losses among its population, said at least 3,500 civilians have been killed since the push into the western side of the side last month.

Freezy does it! Lakeside New York holiday home is encased in ice from freezing cold windstorm

The home, which sits 25 feet back from the shore of Lake Ontario, had been almost buried under thick folds of ice.

That was thanks to Wednesday's windstorm, which saw gusts of up to 36mph spattering his home with freezing spray. Blustery winds and temperatures as low as 12 degrees over the next few days left his home looking like something from Frozen.

But rather than being upset, Kucko has decided to 'let it go,' and turned his misfortune into a dazzling series of photographs.

The stabbing and shooting came a day after a powerful explosion at a block of flats in Gothenburg. What is believe to be a hand grenade as set off in the stairwell. Police spokesperson Stefan Gustafsson said several people were seen running from the scene.

No arrests have been made.

Last week two men were shot in the head in an area of Stockholm.

Multimillion warplane handed by US carries 276 ‘combat failings’

THE £100 million US warplane being bought for the Royal Navy’s aircraft carriers has 276 “deficiencies in combat performance”, a Pentagon report on the F-35 Lightning reveals.

The weaknesses in the £1.2trillion Joint Strike Fighter programme, including delays on completing gun testing and “overall ineffective operational performance”, are likely to delay its long-awaited entry into service still further.

There are also problems with the software which is designed to run the highly sophisticated warplane.

This could mean the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carriers face years without the planes they were designed to carry.

The length of the 62-page report was described by one source as “unprecedented” at this stage of the F-35’s already long-delayed development.

SCIENCE FACT: Chicken pox vaccine is made with “human embryonic lung cell cultures” and human diploid cell cultures from aborted fetal tissue

Every individual or organization that tells you chicken pox vaccines are not made with human fetal tissue cell lines is engaged in science denialism.

It is an irrefutable science fact that varicella (chicken pox) vaccines are made with not just aborted human fetal tissue cell lines, but also cells take from guinea pigs and cows. In effect, a chicken pox vaccine is a multi-species blood and tissue cocktail of DNA and chemicals being mainlined into your tissue and blood.

This is all openly admitted by the CDC itself which lists the excipient ingredients used in common vaccines such as chicken pox, MMR and TDaP. Here’s what the CDC says is used in Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, current as of January 6, 2017. You can see this list for yourself at this CDC.gov link.

Obama lawyers move fast to join fight against Trump

When Johnathan Smith resigned from the U.S. Justice Department on Inauguration Day, he looked forward to spending time with his infant son, but that plan unraveled a week later when President Donald Trump unveiled his explosive foreign travel ban.

Within two weeks, Smith had a new job as legal director of civil rights group Muslim Advocates and was drafting briefs for a successful court challenge to the ban, joining other former top Obama administration lawyers now fighting Trump.

It is not surprising that Smith and some of his colleagues, political appointees of Democratic President Barack Obama, would leave the Justice Department now led by Republicans. What is unusual is how fast they have signed up to be Trump adversaries.

The Empire Should Be Placed On Suicide Watch

In all the political drama taking place in the USA as a result of the attempted color revolution against Trump, the bigger picture sometimes gets forgotten. And yet, this bigger picture is quite amazing, because if we look at it we will see irrefutable signs that the Empire in engaged in some bizarre slow motion of seppuku and the only mystery left is who, or what, will serve as the Empire’s kaishakunin (assuming there will be one).

‘No Reason To Believe It’s True’: McCain Calls On Trump To Retract Wiretap Claim

Republican stalwart John McCain has called on US President Donald Trump to provide evidence to back up his claim that his predecessor, Barack Obama, wiretapped his phones in Trump Tower during the election campaign or else drop the allegations entirely.

“The president has one of two choices, either retract or provide the information that the American people deserve,” McCain said in an interview on CNN’s State of the Union. “I have no reason to believe that the charge is true, but I also believe that the president of the United States could clear this up in a minute.”

Five thousand US troops are back in Iraq to bolster the shattered nation’s puppet regime that is propped up by American bayonets. New Iraqi military formations have been formed, totally equipped with modern US M1 Abrams tanks, Humvees, and fleets of trucks. More US forces are on the way.

These US-financed Iraqi units are euphemistically called ‘anti-terrorism forces’ and are supervised by US officers. In fact, what we see is the old British Imperial Raj formula of white officers commanding native mercenary troops.

These Iraqi units are now assaulting ISIS-held Mosul, Iraq’s second city, and smaller towns. Most of America’s Iraqi ‘sepoys’ (as native troops in the British Indian Raj were known) are Shia bitterly opposed to the nation’s minority Sunnis. After its 2003 invasion of Iraq, the US encouraged animosity between Shia and Sunni as a way of breaking resistance to foreign occupation – ‘divide et impera’ as the Romans used to say.

Roughly one third of college students spend their loans on spring break and partying.

There is a massive student loan epidemic in the United States. Over $1.4 trillion in student debt is floating around in our economy lingering like an albatross on the necks of many young students. While the idea of getting a college degree is more popular today than ever, it would seem like going to spring break is also very popular. It is hard to track how students spend their student loans. Obviously most (if not all) goes to pay for college for the vast majority of students. But some use student loans to finance unnecessary items like partying it up on spring break and getting inebriated to celebrate a semester well done. A new LendEDU poll found that roughly one-third of college students used a part of their student loans to finance their spring break. While this is not the bulk of young college going Americans, the number is somewhat startling. Priorities folks!

The Democrats’ Dangerous Diversion

The current debate over “fake news” has reminded me of a conversation I had several years ago with a former citizen of East Germany, now living in the United States. He explained that, in East Germany, everybody knew that what the media told them about their own country was a bunch of lies and propaganda. So they assumed that what the media told them about the West was just propaganda, too.

U.N. Accuses Turkey of Killing Hundreds of Kurds

Turkey’s military and police forces have killed hundreds of people during operations against Kurdish rebels in southeastern Turkey, the United Nations said on Friday in a report that listed summary killings, torture, rape and widespread destruction of property among an array of human rights abuses.

The report, by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, details how operations by the Turkish infantry, artillery, tanks and possibly aircraft drove up to half a million people from their homes over a 17-month period from July 2015 to the end of 2016.

Though the report is focused on the conduct of security forces in southeastern Turkey, the 25-page document underscores the deepening alarm of the United Nations over the measures ordered by Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, since a failed coup attempt last July.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, but what is the UN (and the US government) actually prepared to do about these war crimes?!?

My prediction is that, yet again, the UN will prove impotent, and thoroughly useless in stopping these war crimes in any way.

And one cannot help but notice the hypocrisy that, according to the US government, some war crimes are perfectly acceptable, such as the Saudi war crimes against Yemeni non-combatants, in the killing and maiming of Yemen's children, and the starving to death to of Yemen's children by the Saudi blockade of Yemen ports, meaning no food aid can get in at all.

The US government apparently has absolutely no moral qualms about being complicit to Saudi war crimes in Yemen, because it suits its geopolitical agenda; it will be interesting to see what the official Trump administration's response will be this UN charge about Turkish war crimes against the Kurds.

Oh, and did I mention that after the 2015 Saudi invasion of Yemen, the US began a massive construction on a US naval base on the Yemeni island of Socotra?!?

Yemen and The Militarization of Strategic Waterways

And as reported on 29 August 2015 at syria360.wordpress.com:

The US has invaded and occupied Yemen’s strategic Island of Socotra in the Indian Ocean and is now building up its biggest naval base there, media reports said. “Hundreds of workers from Asian countries have been deployed by the US navy to construct its biggest naval base on the island,” Arabic-language Al-Masyra TV quoted a Spanish-language newspaper as saying on Saturday. The Pentagon’s publicly disclosed military and security program for Yemen grew from $4.6 million in 2006 to $67 million last year. “That figure does not include covert, classified assistance that the United States has provided.” [1] In addition, “Under a new classified cooperation agreement, the U.S. would be able to fly cruise missiles, fighter jets or unmanned armed drones against targets in the country, but would remain publicly silent on its role in the airstrikes.” [2] On January 1 General David Petraeus, the chief of the Pentagon’s Central Command, in charge of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as operations in Yemen and Pakistan, was in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad and said of deepening military involvement in Yemen, “We have, it’s well known, about $70 million in security assistance last year. That will more than double this coming year.” [3]

I cannot precisely recall the headlines from 29 August, 2015; but I can, with a great deal of certainty, assure you that the invasion, occupation, and the building of this US military base in Socotra, was never mentioned by the corporate presstitutes and whorespondents in the US.

So, in 2016, the US government spent $140 million, give or take, in "security assistance" in Yemen? (read: construction of this military base).

This creates an ability of the US Navy to project power into the Gulf of Aden, and Indian ocean. And I would suggest that this, and not the Houthi rebellion which threw the Al-Hadi government out of power, is the "real reason" the US government is complicit in Saudi war crimes, by allowing them to buy the bombers from US companies, and providing "guidance" for their bombing runs.

In any reasonable political solution to the problems in Yemen (and most experts do agree that the ultimate resolution has to be political, rather than military here), the Yemeni government would want to claim these territories back from the United States; but the continued Saudi, US-enabled attacks simply assure that such a political solution can not possibly happen, until the completion of this US naval base is a "fait accompli".

So according to the US government's "logic", is why Yemenis continue to die of Saudi bombings, and starvation of their children.

As many as 48 million Twitter accounts aren't people, says study

A big chunk of those "likes," "retweets," and "followers" lighting up your Twitter account may not be coming from human hands. According to new research from the University of Southern California and Indiana University, up to 15 percent of Twitter accounts are in fact bots rather than people.

The research could be troubling news for Twitter, which has struggled to grow its user base in the face of growing competition from Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and others.

Researchers at USC used more than one thousand features to identify bot accounts on Twitter, in categories including friends, tweet content and sentiment, and time between tweets. Using that framework, researchers wrote that "our estimates suggest that between 9% and 15% of active Twitter accounts are bots."
