Electoral Reforms for Developing Democracies:

The biggest fault in democracy, as it is practiced all over the world, is the election campaign funding part, because individuals and corporations that finance an election campaign always have ulterior motives: that is, they treat political funding as an investment from which they intend to make profits by influencing the executive policy and legislation. In this short essay I am going to offer a few suggestions to make the democratic process more transparent and representative. The way I see it, there are three big structural faults in the Pakistani political system. A representative and democratic political system tends to weed out the corrupt and inept rulers in the long run. But the Pakistani democracy has frequently been derailed by decade long martial laws (1958-71, 1977-88 and 1999-2008) and every time we got back to the square one and had to start anew.

Saudis Lobby Washington Insiders To Support U.S. Led Regime Change In Syria

That 51 US diplomats reproached President Obama’s Syria policy by calling for greater American military force deployed against the Damascus government was itself a remarkable sign of official dissent within Washington. But the president’s authority was further brazenly undermined when a few days later the Saudi rulers endorsed the dissenting US diplomats – while being received at the White House. Several things can be discerned here. For one, the US policy on Syria is reeling from failure. The objective of regime change – which has impelled the whole war in that country for the past five years – seems to be fading as an obtainable goal. Russia’s military intervention beginning last October to stabilize the Syrian state put paid to that. Reports that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the top commander of the so-called Islamic State (IS or Daesh), has been killed in a Syrian/Russian air strike in the group’s eastern stronghold of Raqqa suggests that the foreign-backed terrorist insurgency is indeed facing final defeat.

This Canadian Startup Can Track Your Emotions Through a Fitness Monitor

Jean-Philip Poulin was feeling “joyful” and “excited” when I interviewed him recently in Montreal. I know this because he showed me his real-time emotion metrics during our conversation, which were being parsed by a machine-learning algorithm that uses heart-rate data transmitted from his Microsoft Band 2 fitness tracker. “Hey, you’re feeling good!” I exclaimed, and his “joyful” levels spiked a little.

Ex-UN President ‘Conveniently’ Crushes His Own Throat Before Clinton-Linked Federal Case Starts

The suspicious circumstances surrounding the death last week of former U.N. President John Ashe has left political pundits and conspiracy theorists alike speculating as to whether foul play was involved in his untimely demise. After Ashe was found dead Wednesday, the U.N. claimed that he had died from a heart attack, according to the New York Post’s Page Six. That claim was later disputed by local police officers in Dobbs Ferry, New York, who said that Ashe had died from a crushed throat during a workout accident. What makes this mysterious death so intriguing is the fact that Ashe was due in court on Monday with Chinese billionaire co-defendant Ng Lap Seng. Ashe was accused of receiving at least $500,000 in bribes to use “his official position to obtain for Ng potentially lucrative investments in Antigua,” according to a criminal complaint charging Ng.

European Banks Have Their Worst Two Day Stretch EVER As The Global Financial Crisis Intensifies

Over the last two trading days, European banks have lost 23 percent of their value. Let that number sink it for a bit. In just a two day stretch, nearly a quarter of the value of all European banks has been wiped out. I warned you that the Brexit vote “could change everything“, and that is precisely what has happened. Meanwhile, the Dow was down another 260 points on Monday as U.S. markets continue to be shaken as well. Overall, approximately three trillion dollars of global stock market wealth has been lost over the last two trading days. That is an all-time record, and any doubt that we have entered a new global financial crisis has now been completely eliminated.

The mask has finally come off the real reason for the “BREXIT” as a 10 page EU plan by France and Germany is now exposed, creating an EU “Super-State” where members would no longer be countries! Apparently, 20 Ministers of the EU have already signed-off on the plan at secret meetings in Berlin and Paris, and countries which have not signed off, will be given an ultimatum at a meeting in Prague later today: Accept this or get out of the EU. This document was kept secret from the British people prior to the BREXIT vote; apparently to conceal from them they would be asked to give up being a country! A European superstate instead of the European Union, such an ultimatum will be presented to the countries of theVisegrad Group at a meeting in Prague, according to German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
