Iran, Italy To Sign Major Credit Deal Reader 01/10/2018 (Wed) 18:30:13 Id: a1eebf [Preview] No. 5338 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Italy says it will sign a basic agreement to provide as much as €5 billion to Iran to help press ahead the country’s development projects.

The agreement – which could be signed between the two countries on Thursday – would be meant to enable Italian companies to invest in Iran, Reuters quoted an unnamed official at Italy’s Treasury as saying.

The accord foresees the opening of lines of credit to two Iranian banks by Invitalia, an Italian state-owned holding, in order to finance investment projects by Italian companies, the source said.

This follows several similar moves that were taken earlier. The latest involved an agreement between four Iranian banks and the Eximbank of Russia to provide “unlimited funds” for development projects to be carried out by domestic and international contractors in the Islamic Republic.

In late September, Austria’s Oberbank signed a major finance deal with over a dozen Iranian banks based on which it would provide €1 billion in credits to the country’s companies that invest in the Iranian economy.

Oberbank’s initiative – that was seen in Tehran as the first of its kind in many years – was followed on the same day by a similar agreement between Denmark’s Danske Bank and several Iranian banks.

Accordingly, Danske Bank would allocate a credit line of €500 million for investments by Danish businesses in Iran.

On a related front, France’s state investment bank Bpifrance (BPI) announced also in September that it planned to provide funds to French companies that invest in the Iranian economy from next year.

BPI France CEO Nicolas Dufourcq was quoted by media as telling reporters that his bank would grant up to €500 million ($598 million) in annual credits to companies that venture into the Iranian market.

Fusion GPS Admits Globalists John McCain, Obama and Hillary Were Behind Fake Smear Dossier Reader 01/10/2018 (Wed) 17:51:24 Id: c2688f [Preview] No. 5335 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The founders of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS admitted that they helped the researcher hired to compile the infamous, largely discredited 35-page dossier on President Donald Trump to share the document with Sen. John McCain.

The goal of providing the dossier to McCain, the Fusion GPS founders explained, was to pass the information contained in the questionable document to the U.S. intelligence community under the Obama administration.

Breitbart News sent the following questions to McCain’s office but did not receive a reply before press time: “Given that Fusion GPS is openly an opposition research firm, did Sen. McCain know that he was sharing political opposition research on Trump with the intel community? Did he know the dossier was partially funded by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign?”

In October, the Washington Post reported that in April 2016, attorney Marc E. Elias and his law firm, Perkins Coie retained Fusion GPS to conduct the questionable anti-Trump work on behalf of both the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Through Perkins Coie, Clinton’s campaign and the DNC continued to fund Fusion GPS until October 2016, days before Election Day, the Post reported.

On January 10, CNN was first to report, based on leaked information, that the contents of the dossier were presented during classified briefings one week earlier to then-president Obama and president-elect Trump.

Just after CNN’s January 10 report on the classified briefings about the dossier, BuzzFeed published its full unverified contents.

In October, McCain denied providing the dossier to BuzzFeed and said that he only gave the material to the FBI. “I gave it to no one except for the director of the FBI. I don’t know why you’re digging this up now,” McCain told the Daily Caller during what the news website described as a testy exchange.

While the Fusion GPS oped sheds some light on the manner in which McCain obtained the dossier, the Fusion founders did not name the “emissary” who delivered the document to McCain.

A January 11 statement from McCain attempted to explain why he provided the documents to the FBI but did not mention how he came to possess the dossier or whether he knew who funded it.

“Upon examination of the contents, and unable to make a judgment about their accuracy, I delivered the information to the director of the FBI,” McCain said at the time. “That has been the extent of my contact with the FBI or any other government agency regarding this issue.”

Last Month, Wood related that he served as a “go-between” to inform McCain about the dossier contents. “My mission was essentially to be a go-between and a messenger, to tell the senator and assistants that such a dossier existed,” Wood told Fox News.

In March, Vanity Fair raised questions about the alleged involvement of David J. Kramer, a former State Department official, in helping to obtain the dossier directly from Steele. The issue was also raised in a lawsuit filed against Steele by one of the individuals named in the dossier.

The dossier contains wild and unproven claims that the Russians had information regarding Trump and sordid sexual acts, including the widely mocked claim that Trump hired prostitutes and had them urinate on a hotel room bed. It also claimed there was an exchange of information between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government.

Those allegations remain unsubstantiated following numerous public hearings. Indeed, former CIA Director John Brennan made clear in testimony last May that after viewing all of the evidence that was available to him on the Russia probe he is not aware of any collusion between Russia and members of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

After All The Wildfires and Rain, Southern Commiefornia Litterally Resembles A Third World Ghetto Reader 01/10/2018 (Wed) 17:07:17 Id: abf271 [Preview] No. 5331 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Commiefornia just can't catch a break.

After wildfires - including the largest blaze in California history - tore through Southern California last month, causing billions of dollars in property damage, heavy rains triggered mudslides in some of the areas hardest-hit by the fires - including Montecito in Santa Barbara county, where the most deaths were reported.

The storm may be over, but the hunt for survivors isn't. So far, 13 people have been confirmed dead, while 25 more were injured and another 50 had to be rescued. But those numbers could rise as the search is deepened and expanded Wednesday, with a major search-and-rescue team arriving from nearby Los Angeles County and help from the Coast Guard and National Guard along with law enforcement, according to the Associated Press.

And as the search for victims ramps up, more photos over the devastation wrought by the mudslides are beginning to emerge.

The mudslides took thousands of Californians by surprise.It was unleashed in the dead of night by flash flooding in the steep, fire-scarred Santa Ynez Mountains. As the AP explains, scorched areas are especially susceptible to destructive mudslides because the earth doesn’t absorb water well and the land is easily eroded when there's no vegetation.

Montecito was burned by the Thomas Fire, which erupted Dec. 4 and became the largest ever recorded in California. It eventually spread to more than 440 square miles (1,140 square kilometers) and destroyed 1,063 buildings and homes. It continues to burn deep in the wilderness.

Some witnesses likened the sound of the mud to a freight train or an earthquake as the torrent arrived suddenly, carrying rocks and trees as it washed away cars and trashed homes.

Video shows rescue workers saving a man whose car was washed away in the mudslides.

Victim who was swept away in their vehicle was located by the crew of AirSquad6. Victim was hoisted and flown to awaiting ground personnel. pic.twitter.com/RvX743x0yi

This is what happens when stupidity overcomes common sense. Let this be a lesson to all the 'environmental' nutjobs out there: if humans are living around nature, they must properly maintain that land around them. Commies no longer believe that, because they don't like hard work or private industry. This is what happens when humans don't maintain their surrounding environments.

It's like allowing a tree to grow right in front of your house and refusing to cut it down. All it takes is one bad storm and some of those heavy branches are going to snap off and knock a big hole right through your roof, while its raining!

You have to maintain the environment you live around!



End of USD? China Weighs Halting Purchases of US Treasury Bonds Reader 01/10/2018 (Wed) 16:34:41 Id: ad85c3 [Preview] No. 5328 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
China added to bond investors’ jitters on Wednesday as traders braced for what they feared could be the end of a three-decade bull market.

Senior government officials in Beijing reviewing the nation’s foreign-exchange holdings have recommended slowing or halting purchases of U.S. Treasuries, according to people familiar with the matter. The news comes as global debt markets were already selling off amid signs that central banks are starting to step back after years of bond-buying stimulus. Yields on 10-year Treasuries rose for a fifth day, touching the highest since March.

China holds the world’s largest foreign-exchange reserves, at $3.1 trillion, and regularly assesses its strategy for investing them. It isn’t clear whether the officials’ recommendations have been adopted. The market for U.S. government bonds is becoming less attractive relative to other assets, and trade tensions with the U.S. may provide a reason to slow or stop buying American debt, the thinking of these officials goes, according to the people, who asked not to be named as they aren’t allowed to discuss the matter publicly. China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange didn’t immediately reply to a fax seeking comment on the matter.

“With markets already dealing with supply indigestion, headlines regarding potentially lower Chinese demand for Treasuries are renewing bearish dynamics,” said Michael Leister, a strategist at Commerzbank AG. “Today’s headlines will underscore concerns that the fading global quantitative-easing bid will trigger lasting upside pressure on developed-market yields.”

The Chinese officials didn’t specify why trade tensions would spur a cutback in Treasuries purchases, though foreign holdings of U.S. securities have sometimes been a geopolitical football in the past. The strategies discussed in the review don’t concern daily purchases and sales, said the people. The officials recommended that the nation closely watch factors such as the outlook for supply of U.S. government debt, along with political developments including trade disputes between the world’s two biggest economies when deciding whether to cut some Treasury holdings, the people said.

A top Treasury official signaled confidence in the U.S. government debt market, which at $14.5 trillion is the world’s largest.

Jamie Dimon Says He Regrets Calling Bitcoin A Fraud Reader 01/09/2018 (Tue) 16:13:43 Id: 589427 [Preview] No. 5296 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Less than four months after Jamie Dimon lashed out at bitcoin, warning that it was would "eventually blow up" because it was "worse than tulip bulbs" and that "any trader trading bitcoin" will be "fired for being stupid", the JPMorgan CEO said he "regrets" his infamous criticism of bitcoin, in which he called the cryptocurrency a "fraud."

In an interview with FOX Business' Maria Bartiromo, Dimon repented, softening the comments he made in a September banking conference, saying "I regret making them."

While Dimon said that he personally is still "not interested in the subject at all" he conceded that blockchain "is real." Dimon also softened his tone on initial coin offerings, saying that ICOs need to be reviewed “individually”.

"The blockchain is real. You can have crypto yen and dollars and stuff like that. ICO's you have to look at individually", Dimon told Bartiromo.

"The bitcoin to me was always what the governments are gonna feel about bitcoin as it gets really big, and I just have a different opinion than other people. I'm not interested that much in the subject at all."

Until today's recantation, Dimon was one of the highest-profile bitcoin skeptics on Wall Street. His remarks in September were met with anger from many in the cryptocurrencies community, but also echoed by other top executives, including Larry Fink, chairman and chief executive of BlackRock.

Since then, the acceptance of bitcoin has moved to the institutional arena with both the cboe and CME launching bitcoin futures, while Goldman is preparing a cryptocurrency trading desk. It was only a matter of time before Dimon realized all the potential lost revenue, and rushed back in to avoid losing even more market share.

>None of the cryptocurrencies live in a vacuum
Actually yes they literally do, its a digital vacuum.

>Unless stock markets in themselves are a scam
Please anon, don't tell me you think the stock market has anything to do with the real economy. It's all manipulated to consolidate wealth among a very few and savvy investors with inside connections.

>They're a form of rapid crowd investment, but oh perhaps investment itself is a scam
That all depends what you invest in. Not how many people invest in it, but what you invest in.

>It's hard to see how early currencies would crash
Hyperinflation = a consequence of devaluation = a consequence of debt dependence = a consequence of insolvency. Research the history of fiat currencies.

>In the case some world power government for example declares it crashed through their own manipulated market in order to stop the progress, the more likely scenario, I'm not really sure if it's the better idea to either let them get away with it or double down. ... This is the most likely scenario cryptocurrency goes down, and it's not all that unlikely. Bartering with "the enemy" is basically the start of almost every war, that's largely what wars are for, to prevent barter between too unloyal subjects. Would anything less, like a cold war, achieve the same goal? There's a question.

That's a legitimate conclusion. Governments are already trying to regulate the purchase of cryptocurrencies, much like they regulated the purchase of gold during the first great depression.

This has been my whole point about Keynesian economics and the problem with it, its based on fraud and manipulation and pure debt dependency; without creating much capital, without regarding actual GDP or real industrial growth. Keynesian economics is a fraudulent system, which does "seize the means of production" and re-distributes that wealth. Sound familiar?

Keynesian economics really doesn't sound like capitalism ... BECAUSE ITS NOT.

However, cryptocurrency could provide the average Joe with a save haven option when their fiat currency goes bad, and if used right, they could transfer from one failed fiat currency (via crypto blockchain) to another fiat currency that has not yet failed and still "worth" something. And in that case, yes I endorse it.

I would like to describe the cryptocurrency phenomenon as a temporary digital gold transaction between one identity to another, without a third party. That is, if used correctly. I don't think its safe to hold onto crypto fo too long, but if you were facing hyperinflation you could offset it by holding onto some crypto and trading it for goods while continually dumping your failing fiat legal tender into it.

Now bare in mind that governments are well known for being complete ASSHOLES, and will inevitably try to regulate this or ban it altogether (much like they will try doing to physical silver or gold transfers when paper currency hyperinflates).

Holding onto physical basic essentials in bulk before a crisis takes place is still the smartest way around all this.



Good! Supreme Court Rules Police Must Have Warrant To Search Vehicles Reader 01/10/2018 (Wed) 15:47:02 Id: 86bbb5 [Preview] No. 5325 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A heroin-toting, unauthorized rental car driver and the owner of a stolen motorcycle that twice eluded police got some love from the Supreme Court Tuesday.

In two cases testing the reach of the Fourth Amendment's privacy protection, a majority of justices appeared to side with the suspects over the government when their constitutional rights were threatened.

They were more united when it came to Terrence Byrd, who was stopped by police in Pennsylvania while driving a car rented by his fiancée. A search of the trunk produced 49 bricks of heroin and body armor — but without a warrant.

Justice Department officials argued successfully in lower courts that because Byrd was not authorized to drive the car, he lacked any expectation of privacy. That didn't sit well with most of the justices.

"Even if you don't have an expectation of privacy in the trunk, you've claimed an expectation of privacy in the property," Justice Sonia Sotomayor said. "And absent probable cause, there's no right to search. So why are we here?"

Justice Neil Gorsuch, picking up on his predecessor Antonin Scalia's penchant for privacy rights, said Byrd would have been able to throw out a carjacker or a hitchhiker, "so why not the government?"

Ryan Collins' complaint was a closer call during the second oral argument. He was arrested for possessing a stolen motorcycle that had outrun Virginia police twice in 2013 — but an officer had to walk up the driveway of the house where Collins was staying to confirm the match.

The high court ruled that same year that police need a warrant to search outside a private home. But automobiles are exempt if a crime is suspected. In Collins' case, the two precedents collided, dividing the justices almost evenly.

"There are some areas which are just as sacrosanct as your living room," Justice Elena Kagan told Virginia's acting solicitor general, Trevor Cox, referring to the court's 2013 ruling. "In that case, I think you lose here."

Such Good! Godfather Globalist Peter Sutherland Finally Crokes Reader 01/09/2018 (Tue) 03:45:30 Id: b0ac45 [Preview] No. 5293 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Peter Sutherland, the notorious mass migration and multiculturalism campaigner dubbed the ‘father of globalisation’, has died.

Sutherland, 71, was a key player on a host of globalist bodies and multinational corporations, including the European Commission, the World Trade Organization (WTO), and Goldman Sachs International, throughout his life.

As the United Nations Special Representative for Migration and non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International in 2012, he infamously remarked that the European Union should “be doing its best to undermine” the sense of national “homogeneity” in Britain and Europe, in order to pave the way for multicultural societies.

“The United States, or Australia and New Zealand, are migrant societies and therefore they accommodate more readily those from other backgrounds than we do ourselves, who still nurse a sense of our homogeneity and difference from others,” he told the House of Lords.

“And that’s precisely what the European Union, in my view, should be doing its best to undermine.”

The Ireland-born globalist argued that the supposed threat of an ageing population was the “key argument … for the development of multicultural states”, and that the EU should push mass migration “however difficult it may be to explain this to the citizens”.

BIG Cover-up of New Year’s Eve In EU Subjugated Vassal States Exposed Reader 01/08/2018 (Mon) 21:15:36 Id: d316f3 [Preview] No. 5279 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
France: In several European cities police and fire brigades were heavily attacked during New Year’s Eve.

A group of youth tried to lynch a police woman and her superior in a Paris suburb. They were attacked after responding to a phone call about an out of control New Year’s Eve party. When they arrived at the scene, they were attacked by a large group of mostly migrant men.

The officers were saved after reinforcements showed up. France is in shock about the incident and president Macron called it on Twitter a “cowardly and criminal lynching of police officers doing their duty”.

Germany: In Belgium the fire brigade was ambushed in the Brussels migrant suburb of Molenbeek. They received an emergency call about a car fire, but a fire was nowhere to be seen when they arrived. Instead the fire trucks were immediately pelted with stones by a group of young men. The trucks were damaged and the brigade quickly had to leave the scene.

A group of youth in Berlin attacked police with gas pistols in the Neukölln migrant suburb. They shot at cars and it is a miracle nobody was hurt. Earlier police were attacked with bottles and heavy fireworks in the city.

According to the Berlin fire brigade there were eight attacks on emergency services and 57 attacks on emergency vehicles. Also an ambulance crew was threatened with firearms by several men. Rainer Wendt, head of the German Police Union, said that attacks against emergency forces had reached life-threatening levels.

Netherlands: Police in the Dutch city of The Hague were attacked with heavy fireworks in the Schilderswijk suburb. Looking closely at the video of the incident, two men with a migrant background were arrested.

Sweden: In Sweden there were also several incidents. Police and fire brigades were attacked with fireworks, in two of Kristianstad’s suburbs. They had to retreat and were unable to put out a fire. Swedish media say a 22-year-old Arab was recently arrested for blowing up a police car in Malmö on Friday.

It's Time To Report This: Updated List Shows Hundreds of New CEOs And Officals Resigning... WHY? Reader 01/09/2018 (Tue) 18:04:29 Id: 035660 [Preview] No. 5304 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Here is a newly updated list of resigned CEOs, politicians and other officials: https://archive.fo/xckLx

Note several hundred have resigned since September 3rd 2017 to January 5th 2018. This is NOT a normal trend. Something big is going on, or something nasty could be ahead and many insiders must know it by now.

Question: what is going on? Why are so many insiders who have cushy jobs suddenly resigning? What do they know that we don't?

A couple conclusions have entered my mind reviewing this. Possible economic collapse or currency crisis may be ahead for the US petrodollar, or even part of the plans. Possible - yet unlikely - corruption crackdowns are feared in the near future? Could austerity against the very wealthy be a part of this fear (Saudi Arabia style purge, anyone!?) Could Trump administration's plans for massive tariffs against foreign goods be driving this fear?

Fact, without conspiracy: hundreds of very wealthy businessmen/women, politicians and govt officials are resigning EN MASS.

Why?
