    My elaborate comment got lost in the shenanigans. So be it.

    Someone needs to pull the Nutella nightmare ad from hell.

  • I’m taking bets on who leaves the EU first. Greece or Germany.

  • US global psyop propaganda meets the disease du jour.

    What’s next? Borat Diplomacy?

    Sounds like the NSA got into Barbara’s underpants drawer and found a nasty secret. Either that, or she’s drunk.If the US wanted to get rid of the Saudi’s golem, ISIL, the US should pour all its treasure into Assad and Iran. You know, this entire thing, the creation of ISIS and the rout in gas [...]

    Great article confirming the reason behind the anti war movement’s dismay with Democrats:

    Partisan frames were more effective in drawing participants to the antiwar movement the greater the unity of Republican control in Washington, D.C.

    Timely report, David. If Tsipras forces the bondholders to take significant losses — so that Greece can grow its economy again and put people to work or pay their pensions — will Spain demand the same? Taipris is being somewhat conciliatory right now, but that is clearly to get the talks started. It seems entirely [...]

    Hey joe shikspack. How cool to see you here. Thanks for reminding me of Lagarde. I haven’t checked up on her since Davos.

    I do find it funny that people complain about Poroshenko asking for 15 billion € and Soros suggesting 50b €, but no problem with propping up Greece to the tune of 250 billion Euros – what’s the angle in all that?

    Since you can’t seem to keep up, I’ll tell you what the “angle” is: The [...]

    What war? I don’t see a war. You’re caught up in the propaganda of a geopolitical clusterfuck; another US-sponsored regime change proxy war. Your brain is bottom-feeding. Here are facts: Nobody attacked Crimea. Nobody died in Crimea. Nobody attacked West Ukraine or Kiev. Neither Crimea, Russia, nor East Ukraine overthrew their democratically elected President in West [...]

    Some of the best and brightest are working on cryptocurrency start ups, leveraging Blockchain technology to create new markets and disrupt legacy industries. They believe that Blockchain technology is the harbinger of decentralized applications that will fundamentally change the world. There’s gifting built into it and a sense of empowering people, rather than bankers. The [...]

    Hey JayRaye! Nice to bump into you. Great folks here. Wish I could drop by more often.

    “…And now German diktats have ruled most of Europe for roughly five to six years. But that looks like it’s going to continue unless there is a break led by folks like Syriza. The German hegemony over the European Union seems to be unshakable, absent that kind of resistance.

    That dangling close begs the one obvious [...]

    Great article. About the banks and the BRICS (which include Russia and China) — within months they will all be eclipsed by decent alternative banks. It has been done quietly. Crouching Bear; Hidden Dragon. Of course, the countries involved are all playing along with the IMF and the banking spawn of SWIFT and BIS. But [...]

    Thanks, Cass. The perfect book just in time. I’m working with this cryptocurrency start-up — and it’s been a game of catch-up for me as far as the big picture goes. Their money paradigm is backwards (to me). This book may do the trick. Global Capitalism and the Crisis of Humanity All of this is happening [...]

    I see a larger chessboard than you do. The game is the endgame of Dollar hegemony. As part of the grand chessboard game. Russia is being handled first, with the Saudis help.

    Just as St. George slayed the dragon, perhaps Alexis Tsipras and Syriza can slay the Giant Vampire Squid. It would be poetic justice, which seems to be the only kind of justice we can hope to expect these days. But, suffice it to say: I’ll take it.

    I’d settle for anything that breaks the spell of [...]

    On another note, I too have heard some mumbled predictions in geopolitical circles about Germany leaving the EU. Something to do with German auto makers, China, and the New Silk Road high speed train and freight build-out. New Eurasian markets opening up.

    Thanks for the inspiring comment, Sarah. I see we are of like mind. I am astonished and dismayed at how brainwashed the USian public is about Russia and the financial yoke they slave under, all the while hating on the poor and the boogyman du jour. They are far more propagandized than any other culture [...]

    Oh well. There’s a lot of shape shifting that goes on in these sorts of negotiations. The Greek-Russian alliance has taken an interesting turn. I just wrote a piece about this:

    In a strange turn of geopolitical events — unrelated to the rise of Syriza — Greece is set to benefit very significantly from Russia’s recent [...]
