The Obama administration enables anti-Semitism at the United Nations

The United Nations itself promotes anti-Israel rhetoric and efforts to treat the only Jewish state differently from all other members. With U.S. participation, it interceded to investigate the Gaza flotilla incident, a denigration of Israel’s sovereignty and ability to investigate and remedy its own conduct. As a body, the U.N. again and again takes up anti-Israel resolutions. The U.N. tolerates, and by its silence condones, anti-Semitism. Just one example sums up the body’s attitude:
Note: President Harry S. Truman "Jesus Christ himself couldn't please these people, so how can I?"

Syria: At the Gateway of Greater War

By Tony Cartalucci

Syrian forces backed by Russian airpower have made major advances across the battlefield along multiple fronts.

Around Aleppo, Syrian forces have cut supply lines from Turkey that were for years, supplying terrorists operating inside the country. Just east of a growing encirclement of the city of Aleppo, a secondary encirclement of so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) forces is forming as the offensive to relieve Kuweris Airbase has evolved into a northern advance toward Al Bab – a critical logistical hub used by US-NATO-GCC backed terrorists during the initial invasion of Aleppo in 2012 and onward.

Deeper within the interior of Syria, Syrian forces have advanced eastward into the Al Raqqa Governorate, approaching the Tabaqa Airbase. The airbase is a crucial waypoint toward seizing back the city of Al Raqqa itself, which has become the de facto capital of ISIS...

German 'bail-in' plan for government bonds risks blowing up the euro

The London Debt Conference in 1953, when much of Germany's debt was written off. European sovereign debt was sacrosanct after that until the euro led to serial crises A new German plan to impose "haircuts" on holders of eurozone sovereign debt risks igniting an unstoppable European bond crisis and could force Italy and Spain to restore their own currencies, a top adviser to the German government has warned. "A speculative attack could come very fast. If I were a politician in Italy and I was confronted by this sort of insolvency risk I would want to go back to my own currency as fast as possible, because that is the only way to avoid going bankrupt,” he told The Telegraph.

Ever since the derivatives collapse of 2008 the public has been regaled with wondrous stories of recovery in the mainstream to the point that such fantasies have become the “new normal”. These are grand tales of the daring heroics of central bankers who “saved us all” from impending collapse through gutsy monetary policy and no-holds-barred stimulus measures.

Alternative economists have not been so easy to dazzle...
