Saudi Arabia is to deploy military jets and personnel to Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base in the south of the country, Ankara said. The base is already used by the US Air Force for their sorties in Syria. The deployment is part of the US-led effort to defeat the Islamic State terrorist group, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said. Share | Comment

Einstein Was Right: The Existence of Gravitational Waves has been Confirmed

Using the recently-upgraded Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory [LIGO], a signal was recorded on September 14, 2015, four days before the observatory was to officially begin observations. The source was tracked back to a pair of merging black holes, one 36 times the mass of the Sun, and the other 29 masses, 1.3 billion light years away. In the fraction of a second when the two masses merged, 4.6 percent of their mass -- about the mass of three suns -- was converted directly into energy, briefly outshining the energy released from all of the stars and galaxies of the observable universe by ten times. This energy release created distortions in spacetime, generating gravitational waves that spread outward into the universe.

Catholic Church Tells Bishops They Are Not Obliged to Disclose Child Sex Abuse: Report

Crux adds that the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors — a major body created by Pope Francis last year to establish "best practices" for the church in its battle against child abuse — was not involved in the training process. Share | Comment

The Canadian Dollar is Now Even Less of a Haven from a US Dollar Collapse Than It Was Before

Canadians were quite smug, back then, with the Canadian dollar trading above par with the US dollar and we wanted to remind them that not only would the Canadian dollar not be a haven from a US dollar collapse, but the loonie would collapse before the US dollar, since nothing is backing it but the US dollar and Canada had no gold (amongst many other reasons).

Trolling Neighbors or Astronauts Will Get You in Big Trouble

Apparently, people still care about voicemail.  We wondered why voicemail still exists despite the fact that most people seem to hate it. Maybe voicemail is just more professional than a text, or maybe we keep it around because it’s cute when moms do it and it’s useful for creating interludes between ‘90s rap songs. Do your part to keep this dinosaur technology alive—leave a voicemail for someone you love this weekend. It is almost Valentine’s Day, after all. Share | Comment

Vietnam is on the Upswing, but Needs to Keep the Momentum

The reason for the pro-Dung public sentiment is not hard to fathom. In a country where the masses have not ceased railing against China’s growing assertiveness in the South China Sea, leaders who explicitly confront Beijing are likely to win the public heart. When China dragged its oilrig into an area that Vietnam considers part of its exclusive economic zone in May 2014, Dung was outspoken against China’s territorial ambitions. He was also a visible champion of economic reforms and strategic alliances with other regional powers, particularly the US. These moves were apparently aimed at countering China’s economic clout.

DESPITE ANTI-WAR CLAIMS, SANDERS ENDORSES PRESIDENT OBAMA’S FOREIGN POLICY

On Sunday, Bernie Sanders endorsed President Barack Obama’s violent, expansive foreign policy in an effort to distance himself from accusations of inexperience in matters of war. Share | Comment

The fear of individuality

The fear of individuality comes from the apprehension that a human, unchained and alive, might create something that would expose the titanic hoax of the collective and the group; the apprehension that an individual might create something undeniably great and different; and, therefore, put collective human society in its proper perspective.If the liberation of the individual from the State and the Church is now viewed as a mere fantasy, an old dream, an old lie of history, an old delusion, then the future is turned over to Globalist planners and their program of mass control

Let’s start with this bit of background:

China Could Have a Meltdown-Proof Nuclear Reactor Next Year

n what would be a milestone for advanced nuclear power, China’s Nuclear Engineering Construction Corporation plans to start up a high-temperature, gas-cooled pebble-bed nuclear plant next year in Shandong province, south of Beijing. The twin 105-megawatt reactors—so-called Generation IV reactors that would be immune to meltdown—would be the first of their type built at commercial scale in the world.“This technology is going to be on the world market within the next five years,” Zhang predicts. “We are developing these reactors to belong to the world.” Share | Comment

The World Is Turning Japanese

We’d liken it more to a squad of musketeers running out of gunpowder, and turning desperately to their bayonets to win a decision. It doesn’t matter how much conviction and optimism the crew has in their bayonet skills – at the end of the day, it’s only going to add a few extra minutes of life into the inevitable battle against a much more powerful deflationary force.

South Korea’s Future Domestic Policy: The Ahn Cheol-soo Factor

A lot has been written about the “Korean Kaspersky”, or rather, the head of anti-virus lab AhnLab Co., entering into politics. Coming from a very prestigious and wealthy family, Ahn has positioned himself as a new man, without ties to the politicians of the past, and relatively free of past blunders in comparison with other candidates for the presidency.

The Hidden Agenda Behind Saudi Arabia’s Market Share Strategy

This is an interesting theory, but I’m not sure I buy it. McEndree’s argument is basically that US shale players weren’t the main target of the Saudis because they haven’t succeeded in lowering their production. The fact that the effort so far has not worked as perhaps planned isn’t proof that it wasn’t the Saudis’ aim, particularly since they said at the very outset that they as the low cost producer, should not be the swing producer.

Eurobanks: The Probable Point of Failure as Systemic Stress Rises

Doom loop dynamics may be returning. Italy and Portugal (although Portugal stood down on Thursday) have been pressing the Eurocrats for more spending relief, as in more ability to deficit spend. Italy cannot credibly support its “bad bank” vehicle in the abseence of more budgetary headroom. The ECB had thought it had solved the problem of the connection between sovereign debt (which Basel II rules had encouraged banks to buy) and bank solvency. But Italy’s and Portugal’s bond yields have risen…. Share | Comment

Who Endorsed Hillary Clinton? The Congressional Black Caucus or Its PAC Filled with Lobbyists?

This week’s endorsement of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for president by the Congressional Black Caucus political action committee prompted some confusion due to a lack of familiarity with the PAC. We look at the many lobbyists who comprise its board, including those who work for Purdue Pharma, the makers of highly addictive opioid OxyContin, and others who represent Philip Morris and Wal-Mart, the largest gun distributor in America. We also speak with the CBCPAC’s chair, Rep. Gregory Meeks, who notes the PAC"also includes the labor groups, labor organizations," and argues, "We in the Congressional Black Caucus have to raise money so we can elect folks. But if you look at how the Congressional Black Caucus votes, no one can say that they don’t vote in a very progressive way." Our guest Jeffrey Sachs, a leading economist, notes it is important to understand "what this endorsement meant" and adds, "Our politics has been corrupted by the money. That’s why our policies are so bizarre." Share | Comment
