As the anniversaries of D-Day and Monte Cassino approach, we should remember how and why the ‘European project’ started

Shortly after Thursday’s elections for the European parliament, we shall be witnessing the 75th anniversaries of D-Day and of the terrible carnage of the battle of Monte Cassino. One hopes that memories of these events – or, in many cases, learning about them for the first time – may concentrate minds on all sides in the debate about our future relationship with the rest of Europe.

It was the horror of the second world war that led European leaders to bring individual countries together in the hope that future conflict could be avoided. Despite the fantasies of Nigel Farage and his ilk, winning that war was hardly a solo effort on the part of Great Britain. The Americans were an indispensable force in the D-Day landings; Polish forces lost many troops fighting at Monte Cassino. And, of course, the war was won by the allies as a whole, who included the US, Commonwealth countries and, not least, the Soviet Union.

QUOTE :
In footage reportedly shot in London last summer during a dinner with far-right European nationalists, Mr Bannon said Breitbart was in “tough financial shape” after seeing advertising revenues plummet "90 per cent".

He credited the slump to work done by campaign group Sleeping Giants, which pressures companies into cutting ties with media it deems to be racist or sexist.

is the real estate bubble starting to collapse in Australia? - trapped in their property mortgage

as you might now… 2008 was a real estate crisis, according to Dr Prof Ehnts 1929 was a combination of stock market crash and real estate bubble bursting… now let’s hope “they” won’t get the timing right this time.

The Rothschild Family

Baron Rothschild: “the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.”





to be honest – i would like investors to do the exact opposite – i would like them to invest into stability – into making societies and economies fair, just and resilient – and not profit from the suffering of others – like vampires.

in short: be good citizens.

On Trump's current nominee for the Fed, Stephen Moore


On December 22nd Mr Moore said he thought the members of the Federal Reserve Board should be “thrown out for economic malpractice.” On March 13th he co-authored an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal accusing the Fed of acting as an obstacle to American growth.

They're talking about this particular piece.

During the Obama administration he railed at the Fed for keeping interest rates too low, and also urged it to shrink the size of its balance sheet. But then he became an advisor to the Drumpf administration’s election campaign (he recently published a book entitled, “Trumponomics” with Arthur Laffer, an economist). And suddenly he turned from monetary policy hawk to dove. It appears his instincts are informed less by sound principles of economic policy than by whatever he thinks most likely to please Mr Drumpf.

US to cancel meeting when China bars Venezuelan interim leader Guaidó


Several sources familiar with the situation told Reuters that China - one of the Venezuelan government’s few remaining international allies - had proposed not inviting representatives from either the Maduro or Guaido camps to “de-politicize” the meeting.

But a senior official in President Donald Drumpf’s administration - which has backed Guaido as Venezuela’s legitimate ruler - said the United States and its regional allies would “pull quorum” from the meeting in Chengdu if Hausmann was excluded.

The United States is the IADB’s largest member country and has said that billions of dollars of financing from multilateral banks will be needed to rebuild Venezuela’s economy, which has been crippled by hyperinflation, food and medicine shortages and a collapse of the country’s power grid.

I have been seeing the same kind of thing here that ruined FaceBook as a communications and organizing hub for the Left. Anyone that is to the Left of the "Democratic" Party is considered a "Troll" by their sycophants. I am glad to put you on Ignore until I find a pod that is actually friendly to the Left. If anyone knows of a place for the Left to organize online, please let me know.

This is my rating at Political Compass, as any person can see, there is essentially no chance at all that I would be a Trump Supporter despite the allegations of that, and also being a "Russian Troll" that have been hurled my way from some of the members of this pod. Will all real Leftists please stand up?

I joined the Federation to help the Left organize against the "Democratic" and Republican parties in the USA. I thought it would work out better here than on one of the Privately Owned Centralized platforms. Was I wrong?

NPC Red, NPC Blue, neither one has a clue. I am looking to connect with Leftists, and those who can tell that the Duopoly in the USA does not represent our interests. There is little time to waste on supporting political parties and candidates that represent the interests of the Donor Class at the expense of the Common People. If you think I am a "Russian Troll", then you are part of the problem I am working to find a solution for.

I see many "Democratic" Party Loyalists in here, but I have not seen many Leftists. I am calling for any actual Leftist to make contact with me. We need to stick together to oppose the Duopoly, and if this is just going to be like FaceBook, then I will need to begin making other options.

Rupert Murdoch's son Lachlan to succeed his father in leadership


Decades ago he was promised the mantle at Fox, but the company he will run is not what anyone expected, and disappointments have lined his path to this moment. Not only is Lachlan more distant from the White House than his hard-charging father, he will oversee a much smaller company — parent to Fox News, Fox Sports, Fox Entertainment and Fox TV Stations.

On the other side of the political spectrum, several Fox News staffers said they fear Lachlan is less loyal to the network than his father, who has always backed the cable channel without question. The opinionated, conservative faction of the company that supports Trump is already testing his authority.

The Murdochs agreed to the Disney offer as the Justice Department was fighting AT&T’s $85.4 billion acquisition of Time Warner. In contrast to the hostility Trump displayed toward that deal, Trump spoke to Rupert the day the Fox deal with Disney was announced and “congratulated him,” according to... Show more...

Fear of Terrorism - not only tor vpn but any form of encryption could become illegal in German - welcome to the 4th Orwellian Reich of mass surveillance

Mark my words: lawyers will destroy this world – their madness just hit a new high


Internet and Privacy activist Anke Domscheidt Berg says, this “roadmap” could lead to banning ANY FORM OF ENCRYPTION, not just tor onion network, which would be complete madness – just think about unencrypted logins!

Former top political adviser to president Obama died aged 58


Alan Krueger, 58, died on Saturday, according to a university announcement. His family said in a statement: "It is with tremendous sadness we share that Professor Alan B. Krueger, beloved husband, father, son, brother, and Princeton professor of economics, took his own life over the weekend.

Krueger was chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under Obama from 2011 to 2013. In that role, he sought to draw attention to the problem of inequality and promote ways of increasing economic mobility.

"Alan was someone who was deeper than numbers on a screen and charts on a page," Obama said. "He saw economic policy not as a matter of abstract theories, but as a way to make people’s lives better."

Fossil fuels subsidised by $10m a minute, says IMF #Economics #Environmentalism #newhere (
 
Federated Republic of Sean - 2019-03-18 15:35:29 GMT
My friend and his girlfriend had a very barky min-pin. They tried putting a collar on the dog that would spray citronella in her face when she barked. The dog would bark once, get sprayed, then perform a quick binary search to discover the volume threshold, after which she'd bark right under the threshold.

I'm not sure why we think fascists don't do this.
