Sovereign debt and unilateral withdrawal

Back in 2012, five US banks were heading for default by the generally accepted indicators of what default means: The body is the ISDA. The event was the impending default next day [first day of February]. Media blackout. total. Only bloggers. How many financial blogs did you go to and how many ran this? Have you heard of it?  No, because the ISDA determined the banks had not defaulted, according to their…

UN on Hamas genocide

Why is it that this country’s rulers have this unerring habit of backing the wrong side in every conflict? They did it in the days of Lawrence of Arabia, they’re still doing it. Is there anyone left in this country who trusts the MSM to get anything right, that it will be honest? Let me refine the question – is there anyone in this country who still thinks the BBC…

There might be a cause and effect about to happen. It might seem to the non-religious and non-Jewish that this has no meaning to them but in fact it does have great meaning, tangentially, to all of us. 1. The theology goes that the Jews are awaiting their Messiah. Leave aside that he’s already been 2000 years ago and was crucified. The Jews believe that there’s a sequence of events…

The encroachment of the State can’t be stopped if people increasingly give it the justification

The case after case listed at the Ron Paul site is interesting, not just for the encroachment of the police state but for the stupidity and/or borderline criminality of the punished anyway … Continued at Broad Oak [Sackerson] Comments off here.

When truck driver meets motorist meets cyclist

[This post dedicated to Julia] This is one where we see different things, don’t disagree but some other issues stand out as well. Wiggia rightly notes: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/motoring/motoring-news/smile-youre-on-dashcam-camera-more-motorists-are-installing-incar-recorders-to-capture-instances-of-bad-cycling-and-driving-9101712.html I was reading this piece on in car cameras when I did a double take on the second photo of the “cyclist cut up”. Now he may well have been but the inference is that the truck and trailer did it deliberately. If…

The only group internationally and in our society no one defends, not even the Church

Egypt gunmen open fire on Coptic Christian wedding in Cairo “I found a woman seated in a chair with lots of bullet wounds, covered in blood. Many other people had fallen around her, including a child,” he added. Coptic priest Thomas Daoud Ibrahim said he was inside the church when the gunfire erupted. “What happened is an insult to Egypt, and it’s not only directed against Coptic Christians. We are…

And this is why they shouldn’t be near the running of anything

There were so many levels on which that revolting creature in his purple checked suit should not have been dredged up out of oblivion to bung on his Scottish accent and inflict this on the world. First and foremost, it was an offence against public order – a sex act performed on international TV in prime time. I’d expect to take him into custody for that – it’s probably worth…

Shut it, Cameron, before you do even more damage

Quote: “This is a defining moment for Russia.” At the risk of being rude online – shut it, Cameron, you’re pathetic and as for that embarrassing stint by Beaker in Washington – the less said the better. We know we’re impotent on the world stage, in a way we weren’t in Maggie’s day, despite Britain steadily going downhill in real terms for quite some time. Do you really think Obama…

Always challenge the assertion – demand the footage

July 22, 2014 2 Comments

There’s a lot of talk of these SAMs, backed up by snippet TV. We’ve already seen that the footage of missiles minus two being taken back to Russia was false and that’s dealt with in this vid of the press conference: http://player.rutv.ru/iframe/video/id/822433/acc_video_id/610598/isPlay/false/time_play/1/ My first question is why aren’t other bloggers and the MSM taking that up? And my answer is that they don’t wish to. It goes against the narrative.…

Here they go again – this time in the ADF

We’re going to write a playscript. The main baddy will be: 1. A man; 2. A father of five; 3. A serving military officer; 4. A Catholic; 5. An Australian. Therefore he will have certain views on: 1. Abortion; 2. Gay “marriage”; 3. Women’s role in the military; 4. Patriotism. I mean, it’s pretty well night follows day, no? THE Australian Defence Force (ADF) has reportedly charged an Army Reserve…

Footage showing military aircraft near MH-17 prior to crash

Sent by our Russian correspondent Russ. Click pic for player. Though it starts in Russian, there is a simultaneous translator present who puts it in English … of a sort: Russ comments: Some data about plane crash from Russian side. The truth of data can be easily checked after decoding of the plane security boxes. 1. Plane change the direction of the flight. 2. Two Ukranian military planes were near…

Sovereign risk – the UK, Russia and the Ukraine

Now this is interesting.  Below is the overall BSRI score for 50 countries on sovereign risk and perhaps it tells us something we should know about, vis-a-vis the UK for a start. Those at the head of the table are a good risk and those below not to be touched with a barge pole.  So, in the light of Cameron’s and Osborne’s spin, test it out for yourself as to…

State of play

Retweeted by Sue, thanks to Screwed by State ‏@ScrewedbyState  The international sphere was always more interesting to me than the domestic – I mean, do I really care if Chris Huhne said this or Cameron’s latest inanity is that? On the other hand, some of you dear readers are right into all of that, the Guidites, and so an interest must be shown. What domestically raises its head, to me, is the effect…

The DRIP, DRIP, DRIP of state control

OoL would be remiss and not fit for purpose itself if it did not get some sort of statement out on the DRIP doings today. … By all means let’s concentrate on the ludicrousness of the reshuffle but that smokescreen, as the astute know, hides the real nastiness going down in an English summer when people’s eyes are turned elsewhere, e.g. on the World Cup. Why the rush? From Spiegel:…

There are perceptions … but there are also time-honoured, extrinsic realities

In one of the best Morse episodes – Death of the Self – con-artist Russell Clarke [Michael Kitchen] diddles rich customers in Italy with the help of his ex-jailbird lassie Maureen [Jane Snowden] by telling them they must deconstruct and throw away their old perceptions, all the old realities, all the interrelationships – in short, one must kill off the old self and then start a new one. Given Clarke’s…
