Modi Cash Ban a `Total Failure' as 99% of Banned Notes Back

Banks have received 15.28 trillion rupees ($239 billion), or 99 percent of the currency invalidated, the Reserve Bank of India said in its annual report on Wednesday. The government had initially estimated about 5 trillion rupees wouldn’t be declared following the sudden move on Nov. 9, indicating that this was cash stashed away illegally to avoid tax. The cash ban prompted the central bank to print new currency, reducing its profit and cutting annual dividend payout to the government by half.

“This data proves that demonetization was a total failure,” said Mohan Guruswamy, chairman of New Delhi-based Centre For Policy Alternatives, who’d advised a previous government led by the current ruling party. “The prime minister obviously had overstated his case. You’ve lost so many jobs across sectors. How can people trust Mr. Modi and his numbers?”

Your Government Shutdown Survival Guide

On or around October 2, the US federal government will shut down – again. The actual date could be a bit earlier or later, depending on how the government’s cash flows. Technically, the government should have shut down on March 15, 2017. That was the date that a congressionally approved temporary extension of the debt ceiling expired. So on that date, the amount of debt on the books ($19.808 trillion) became the new debt ceiling. Since then, the Treasury hasn’t been able to issue any more federal debt.

When politicians are feeling the heat, they start a war and their popularity goes up even if the war is unnecessary or completely ridiculous.

It was totally stupid but proved to be popular, even among talking heads and Congressmen, some of whom described his action as “presidential” in the best sense of the word.

PlayStation Plus price rises significantly as Sony makes it more expensive to play online

Sony has announced that it will increase the price of its Plus membership – required to play the console over the internet – significantly next month.

And the price rise will happen automatically unless people go through a complicated process to cancel it.

The hikes apply differently according to how people pay for their membership: the yearly price is increasing from £39.99 to £49.99, and the monthly one will rise from £5.99 to £6.99. Similar price rises will happen to those that pay in euros.

The change will go into effect at midnight on 31 August, and every charge after that will be increased.


The only way to get out of the price hike permanently is to cancel the PlayStation Plus membership.

Emmanuel Macron's Africa refugee plan condemned as 'racist and inhumane'

European Parliament’s Rapporteur on the Commission’s Union Resettlement Framework, Left MEP Malin Björk, said the plan was “tainted by structural racism towards the African population”.

“Europe has no right to criminalise mobility or movement - especially not in third countries,” the Swedish MEP said.

“Irregular migration is not a crime - by calling it a crime is akin to calling these people criminals. The most worrying aspect of this plan is that it is coupled with stopping spontaneous arrivals at European territory completely. This breaches the international right to leave one's country and to seek asylum.

“Furthermore, using resettlement as the framework within which EU externalises its borders is to destroy over five decades of humanitarian work and international solidarity. In terms of increased loss of human lives and suffering, the consequences of this plan will be disastrous.”

Antibiotic-resistant genes are being spread all over the world in animal feed, scientists discover

Antibiotic-resistant genes are being spread around the world in animal feed, according to new research that adds to fears humanity could lose one of our most important medicines.

A Government-commissioned report last year estimated 10 million people a year could die worldwide by 2050 because of the rise of “superbugs”, prompting the then Prime Minister David Cameron to announce a crackdown on over-prescribing by GPs and lead efforts to tackle the problem at the United Nations.

Bacteria resistant to the “last resort” antibiotic, colistin, was found in the UK in December 2015, following similar discoveries in parts of Europe, Africa and China.

Pentagon confirms 11,000 troops are in Afghanistan, 2.6k more than reported before

True to the playbook of bank bailouts, the Central Bank of Russia (CBR) decided to bail out Bank Otkritie Financial Corporation, the largest privately owned bank in the country, and the seventh largest bank behind six state-owned banks. The Central Bank put in an undisclosed amount of money in return for at least a 75% stake.

Iran, Again

Israel has been pushing hard on Washington, recently having sent a high-level combined intelligence and military delegation to confer with National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster and Special Mideast Envoy Jason Greenblatt to explain the alleged Iranian threat. And the neocon chorus is also signaling that it expects the Trump Administration to do something. Frederick Hof of the hardline Atlantic Council recently wrote that the fundamental mistake made by Washington consisted of not invading Syria and installing an acceptable government years ago, which would have kept Iran out.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When there are huge differences in how the US and Israel perceive "alleged world threats", the US government should follow its own path, rather than any path dictated by Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Right now, he is the subject of a corruption trial coming up, which makes him geopolitically wounded; and nothing is more dangerous that a geopolitically wounded politician. So he feels as though a war against Iran will give him some desperately needed "distraction".

It is widely understood that Tel Aviv has been cheerleading for regime change in Tehran for some time; but of course, with the cost being borne only in American blood, and with American money.

But there is one factor Giraldi didn't mention in his article (and I consider him an excellent, fact-based blogger) and that is the following: the 6,000 lb gorilla, napping on the Bosendorfer grand, by the name of Russia.

Russian officials and military personnel have long stated that any attack against Iran would be met by a Russian attack against the perpetrator.

Should anything happen to Iran, this will be a threat to our national security

Russian Air Defense will Protect Iran

I would politely suggest to President Trump that any attack against Iran by the US/and or Israel will result in Russia coming to Iran's aid militarily, and their military capabilities, as evidenced by their tour de force performance in Syria, are formidable.

I would also like to politely suggest to President Trump, and Sec Def Mattis, that right now, the US military does not have the troop strength, the weaponry, the manufacturing, or the money to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia over Iran.

And to both President Trump and Sec Def Mattis, please understand: the purpose of this trip by Israel's Special Mideast Envoy Jason Greenblatt, is to get the US government to sign off on waging an unprovoked war against Iran, for absolutely no good reason, which could have devastating implications both domestically, and internationally.

I respectfully counsel calmness, and restraint.

“Everyone understands perfectly well that for North Korea, if it initiates an aggressive strike, a military conflict will mean a complete and immediate destruction, because no one can deny the US military might,” Toloraya said.

“However, for the US, attempts to solve this problem militarily also bring on a retaliatory strike by North Korea that would turn South Korea into a desert,” he warned, saying the North doesn't even need nuclear weapons for that.

She died and was buried just three days before her high school graduation in the prom dress that she never got to wear. Her mother said she couldn’t believe her diagnosis at first because she had received the vaccine, and now she is trying to make sure everyone knows that the vaccine does not offer the protection many people think it does.

In a separate incident, 19-year-old Emily Stillman, a college sophomore, complained of body aches and headache. ER doctors initially thought she was suffering from a migraine, but a spinal tap performed after she lost consciousness revealed that she had meningitis. Her mother said she had no idea that the vaccine did not protect against all strains of the illness.
