You won’t hear much about it from international media. But Myanmar, exalted by the West for veering toward democracy, is in the middle of its largest civilian uprising in nearly a decade. Like practically all uprisings in Myanmar, where a domineering army still holds immense power, this revolt is turning bloody.

Saudi Arabia is looking for $6-8 billion in bank loans to keep its public finances afloat

Saudi Arabia is reportedly seeking a bank loan of $6 to $8 billion is what would be the first significant borrowing by the kingdom's government for more than a decade.

It emerged that Saudi Arabia was looking to borrow money to shore up its public finances last week.

The kingdom has asked banks to submit proposals to lend it a five-year dollar loan of between $6 and $8 billion, Reuters reported, citing sources close to the matter.

Saudi has also asked for the option to increase the loan from this initial limit, as it looks to plug a record budget deficit of £100 billion in 2015 alone.

ECB cuts interest rate to 0% and offers banks free money to try and revive the European economy

The European Central Bank has cut the benchmark interest rate to 0 per cent, from 0.05 per cent, in a bid to revive the slow European economy.

The bank also cut the deposit rate facility to -0.4 per cent, which means it will cost banks more to hold cash rather than to lend it out to customers.

The ECB has decided to boost its quantitative easting programme by €20bn, to €80bn per month starting in April.

Western Reporter In Syria Finds U.S.-Backed Fighters Are Jihadists

Eva Bartlett, an independent journalist who is the first Western reporter who has travelled through the areas of Syria that have been freed from jihadist control by the Syrian government with Russian air-support, is reporting, at the website, that everyone she speaks with has stories of horror to tell, and that in many instances the jihadists who were inflicting the horrors were U.S.-armed and backed, basically supported by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey — often “al-Nusra,” the Syrian branch of Al Qaeda. As Seymour Hersh and others have reported, the U.S. has worked with the Sauds, Qatar, and Turkey, to get men and weapons to al-Nusra.

Cruz' Tax Plan Would Favor The Rich

Cruz tax plan would slash U.S. revenue, favor wealthy: analysis

A tax plan proposed by Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz would cut federal revenues by $8.6 trillion over 10 years, adding substantially to the debt, according to an analysis published on Tuesday by a nonpartisan research center.

Cruz's plan, unveiled in November, would create a flat 10 percent individual income tax that with other changes would mainly benefit high-income households, the study by the Washington-based Tax Policy Center found. (

Other changes include repealing the corporate income tax, as well as payroll taxes for Social Security and Medicare, and estate and gift taxes; increasing the standard deduction and eliminating most other deductions except for mortgage interest and charity; and adding a broad-based 16 percent value-added consumption tax.

"The plan would cut taxes at most income levels, although the highest-income households would benefit the most and the poor the least," the Tax Policy Center said.

Conman Blair's cynical conspiracy to deceive the British people and let in 2million migrants against the rules: Explosive new biography lays ex-PM's betrayal bare

Tony Blair presided over a silent conspiracy to change the face of Britain for ever with mass immigration, an explosive book reveals.

He ordered his Labour government never to discuss in public the supposed ‘advantages’ of the unprecedented influx.

But behind the scenes ministers were instructed to wave tens of thousands of asylum seekers into the UK under cover of their being ‘economic migrants’. Astonishingly, the minister Mr Blair put in charge of borders ruled against deporting failed claimants because it would be too ‘emotional’.

The main aim of allowing in millions of people was to make the country ‘see the benefit of a multicultural society’. The Blair government did not see its job as being to ‘control immigration’.

The attack on Donald Trump’s wife

Yesterday, in an eerie reflection of this historical rerun, a spokesperson for Ted Cruz, lashed out against Melania Trump. It happened on the Neil Cavuto Show on the Fox News Channel and seemed to take the host by surprise. The spokesperson said that if Donald Trump won the White House, his wife Melania would become the only First Lady to have been a presidents’ third wife. She would be the only First Lady to have posed for photographs in the nude. And she would be the only First Lady in a hundred years to have been born outside of the United States.

We can only hope that yesterday’s attack on Melania Trump was an aberration and that the men and women of the Republican Party establishment will pause a moment to consider their own wives and sons and daughters and do what they have to do to protect their interests without hurting the wife or families of their opposition.
