For Once, Low Oil Prices May Be a Problem for World's Economy

“I never thought I would wish, let alone pray, for higher oil prices, but I am,” said Han de Jong, chief economist at ABN Amro Bank NV in Amsterdam. “The world badly needs higher oil prices.” The problem is that the world’s economy relies far more today on emerging countries than 15 or 25 years ago - the last periods of ultra-low oil prices. In another twist, the U.S. has emerged to vie with Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s biggest oil producer. In the past, the harm done to exporters was more than offset by importers’ gains. And with the exception of China and India, most big emerging countries are oil and commodities rich. Such economies now account for about 40 percent of global gross domestic product, about double their share in 1990, according to the International Monetary Fund...

Hillary Clinton is using CNN and DNC to manipulate future votes

It’s 11:46 PM PST and watching CNN when it hits me that CNN is straight propaganda for HRC and is pulling the wool over our eyes. Check out this tweet from CNN Politics where it has just a gif of Bernie but the link takes you to an article where the FIRST thing you see is a video of Ted Cruz with his 1st place speech. This is to plant the image of seeing a male winning the Iowa Caucus in everyone’s mind so it doesn’t cause as much of a stir when they “report” the Breaking News that Bernie actually won Iowa.

Cliven Bundy Discusses the Oregon Case with John Stadtmiller, 2/1/16: "Today Cliven Bundy is taking charge."

Bundy discusses the murder of Rancher LaVoy Finicum. "I watched the assassination, there's no doubt it was a cold blooded assassination, and there's no doubt their intent was to kill everyone else," he said.
The two men also discuss the arrest and imprisonment of Bundy's two sons, Ryan and Ammon Bundy. "There's no justice, there's no mercy, all they wanted to do is make them criminals. They didn't do anything wrong," Bundy says of his two sons, who are currently in jail in Oregon.

A UK citizen made a gruesome discovery in a London playground on Tuesday, a severed ear – or at least that’s what they thought, until further investigation by local police.

The ear was found in a children’s playground in the London borough of Enfield. The concerned passerby no doubt feared the worst for owner of the muddied lug, which looked to have been slashed from the side of a person’s head.

Geneva talks begin as US-backed war in Syria expands

Talks opened in Geneva, Switzerland Monday on the four-year-old war that has killed over 260,000 Syrians and turned millions more into refugees. There is no reason to believe that this United Nations-mediated process will bring any end to the carnage.

The peace talks are starting a full week after their scheduled opening because of bitter divisions over who was to represent so-called rebels and other political forces opposed to the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

How Decades of Conservatives Against Peace Helped Create the Trump Phenomenon

There is much to praise and agree with in National Review’s cover editorial, “Against Trump.” Donald Trump is no friend to limited government proponents. Indeed, his flip-flopping on key issues of concern to libertarians and conservatives make it unclear whether a President Trump would govern from his current perspectives or be the Trump who is a dear friend of the Clintons. But National Review misses a key part of the Trump phenomenon. It isn’t an aberration, but is a natural outgrowth of conservatism abandoning its core values of limited government and a strict national interest foreign policy during the Bush years. It may even be an expression of an underlying worldview of fear and defeatism present in conservatism ever since National Review led the Cold War break with the antiwar, anti-New Deal Old Right.

Jewish West Bank settlers are as smug as white South Africans in 1980

The great South African black poet Dennis Brutus once told me an anecdote that summed up this smug view. Brutus, who passed on in 2009, was the man who encouraged me to go to southern Africa and see for myself. He had been imprisoned on Robben Island in the 1960s, alongside Nelson Mandela and other national leaders. “One day one of the white warders approached,” Brutus said in his mellifluous voice. “He said, ‘Brutus, you seem like an intelligent man — why do you fight against a system that you will never be able to change?’ He was a decent sort, so I answered, ‘And why do you think you will keep dominating us forever?’ He answered simply, ‘Because America will never stop supporting us.'”

The same self-confident attitude shines through in Weiss’s reports. The settlers are absolutely certain the Israeli government will never uproot them, and behind that is the unspoken conviction that the United States will never put significant pressure on Israel.

By Carey Wedler

A federal judge ruled last week that the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) will be forced to share with the public a report on its business practices — a decision both the bank and the Department of Justice (DOJ) fought in court to prevent. The report is based on the findings of an ongoing government audit of the bank initiated amid revelations in 2012, that it laundered money for drug cartels and terrorist organizations...
