Moldova: Europe's next powder keg?

NATO's latest warning about the possibility of Russian aggression spilling over into Moldova provoked various reactions in the former Soviet republic. Last week, top NATO commander, General Philip Breedlove, told the US Congress that Russian troops stationed in the breakaway state of Transnistria are there to stop Moldova from "leaning to the West." He added that Moscow has also implemented a wide-reaching information campaign in Moldova via the Russian media.

Political Agenda Over Reality: Guns Labeled 'Health Crisis'

In a completely transparent move, seven US medical specialty societies and the American Public Health Association have issued a call to label gun injuries a ‘public health crisis.’ The conveniently timed announcements and editorials have arrived suspiciously in concert with the announcement of the ATF’s ammo ban. Sadly this appears to be evidence of a larger political agenda rooted in red tap politics, money, and control rather than reality. On the back of a forced vaccination debate currently in full swing, the US medical establishment is running dangerously close to losing further trust along with the hearts and minds of the people it is supposed to be healing.

TTsarnaev attorney: Video of accused placing bomb down "does not exist"

Defense attorney David Bruck today told a federal court that what authorities have described as a central piece of the prosecution's evidence against his client "does not exist." In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, public officials including the former Special Agent in Charge of the Boston FBI office Richard DesLauriers and the former governor of the state of Massachusetts told the public about a "chilling" video that all but proved the young Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's guilt. Speaking on NBC's Face the Nation, Governor Deval Patrick said the video shows Tsarnaev placing a backpack down and walking away, just before it explodes.

Greek short-term default risk jumped over 300bps today putting the odds of a restructuring at 50-50 within the next year as the warnings we issued last week with regard Greece's imminent default on its IMF loan loom.

When the UK and the rest of Europe proposed and implemented a change to the way GDP is calculated last year (a change which single-handedly pushed Britain above France as the world's 5th largest economy) one which "estimated" the contribution of prostitution and illegal drugs to national economic output, little did we know that such "estimates" would be based on personal experience (also see "How Britain Calculates Its Hooker "GDP Boost": 60,879 Prostitutes x 25 Clients Per Week x £67.16 Per Visit").

For the past few months I’ve been covering U.S. government funding of popular Internet privacy tools like Tor, CryptoCat and Open Whisper Systems.
