Protesters gather for fourth straight day in Romania ~ link ~ The Romanian people are fed up with the Austerity Fascism that has been imposed on them.  This could be the start of something big in Europe.   Stirling     
Protesters seeking the ouster of Romanian President Traian Basescu and early elections gathered for a fourth straight day Sunday in a main square of Bucharest, the capital, and 18 other cities in the Eastern European nation. The demonstrations, which included clashes between police and protesters Saturday in University Square that injured 17 people, are the most serious since Basescu's election in 2004

Protests Continue in Romania for 4th Day ~ link ~ This may lead to a effort to bring back popular former King Michael, who is 90 years old, and his daughter Crown Princess Margarita; in the long run his grandson popular Prince Nicholas (26) would make a great king.   Stirling    

Protests continued in Romanian cities Sunday reflecting widespread anger against austerity measures and an unpopular government.

The protests, in their fourth day, are the most serious since President Traian Basescu came to power in 2004. They are the result of frustration against public wage cuts, slashed benefits, higher taxes, cronyism in state institutions and widespread corruption.

Protests in Bucharest, Romania - video ~ link ~ Powerful.  Stirling     

Police, protesters clash in Bucharest ~ link ~ The incident occurred on Saturday after hundreds of people took to the streets of Bucharest for a demonstration against the austerity measures and the planned healthcare reforms.

The demonstrators called on President Traian Basescu to step down, with some slogan-chanting protesters marching toward the heavily guarded presidential palace. 

French and Saudi warplanes collide in Saudi Arabia ~ link ~ This small largely unnoticed story about a plane crash, during a "training mission" in northern Saudi Arabia is actually most interesting.  It highlights a unknown deployment of long-range two-seat French Air Force Mirage fighter-bombers (the type normally used by France for its long-range nuclear mission).  It was flying in close formation or close quarters with a Royal Saudi Air Force F-15 (most likely playing a fighter escort role).  Is France preparing to bomb Iran and Syria?  Is France preparing to use some of its nuclear weapons against Iran???   Stirling       

Baltic Dry Index ~ link ~ These charts indicate that we are headed into a most serious economic decline.   Stirling      

European leaders use debt downgrades to argue for austerity and for "stimulus" ~ link ~ 'Oh yes, dear sheeple...sorry people...we have screwed you royally for the global banksters, now we want to take what is left over and by the way, we want your agreement to strengthen the Rothschild scam...we mean the EU and Eurozone...for your own good...of course!'  The European people have to decide, more Austerity Fascism or kick the Global Banking Cartel and their bought-and-paid-for political whores out!   Stirling    

European leaders sought to limit damage from a ratings agency’s downgrade of nine countries on Friday, or even turn the news to their advantage, saying that it showed the need to impose more austerity or else do more to stimulate growth.  

Germany’s chancellor, Angela Merkel, said Saturday that the downgrade by Standard & Poor’s meant the euro area must speed up measures to create a more centralized currency union.  

Hungarians hold anti-EU demonstrations ~ link ~ Take the time to read all of this one at the link.  The Hungarian people are revolting against the Rothschild control over their central bank!   Stirling    
Thousands of Hungarians have protested against the European Union, urging their country to pull out from the bloc while Budapest seeks EU's backing to evade insolvency.

People gathered in front of the European Commission offices in Budapest on Saturday in a street protest called by the rightist Jobbik Party -- the second biggest opposition party in Hungary's parliament.

“This week the EU declared war on Hungary in a very harsh and open way," said Csanad Szegedi, a Jobbik member of European Parliament, addressing the protesters.

Most exciting week in recent memory for Israeli politics - with video ~ link ~ Those powerful people and interests in Israel who oppose Netanyahu and his insane Government and his drive towards a General Middle East War have come up with someone who can defeat dear old Bibi.  However, this puts a very short fuze on events surrounding Iran and Syria.  I still say, that Bibi 666 Netanyahu is the one that will plunge the World into Armageddon.   Stirling       

Forget 'women and children first' - it was 'every man for himself' on Costa Concordia cruise liner - with photos ~ link ~ Survivors of the Costa Concordia have told of the panic and chaos as thousands of people desperately attempted to flee the stricken vessel.

Incredible stories of survival have emerged today from some of the 4,200 people on board the cruise liner which hit the rocks off the coast of the tiny Italian island of Giglio.

Costa 'showboating' may have caused disaster ~ link ~ A risky practice by cruise ships of close-passing the island of Giglio in a foghorn-blasting salute to the local population appears to have contributed to the Costa Concordia disaster, officials and witnesses said on Sunday.

The 114,500 tonne monster cruise liner sank after hitting a reef only 300 metres (985 feet) from shore late Friday as it passed much too close to the shore of the Tuscan island on its route to Savona in northern Italy.

Prosecutor says captain left ship early ~ link ~ Shameful!  Stirling    

An Italian prosecutor confirmed allegations from passengers that the Italian captain abandoned ship before all of the Costa Concordia's 4,200 passengers and crew escaped.

Italian Coast Guard Cmdr. Francesco Paolillo says officers urged the captain, Francesco Schettino, to return to his ship and honor his duty to stay aboard until everyone else was safely off the vessel, but said Schettino ignored them.

Boom in Fallujah birth defects continue to go uninvestigated ~ link ~ This is what 21st Century war does.  A much larger General Middle East War will do far far worse, even if it does not turn into WWIII.  Stirling    
In 2009, the Guardian ran an article and video documenting the unbelievably high rate of birth defects in Fallujah following the US use of heavy munitions in 2005. In one hospital alone, the rate was close to 25% — more than four times the normal rate globally

Now, three years later, Al Jazeera confirms that little has been done to investigate the cause of these birth defects. In that time, a single doctor has logged 667 cases of birth defects – and that’s just at one hospital. "There are not even medical terms to describe some of these conditions because we’ve never seen them until now," she told Al Jazeera. "So when I describe it all I can do is describe the physical defects, but I’m unable to provide a medical term."

Royal Navy spends 50 billion pounds on new F-35C fighter jets but they can't even land on aircraft carriers ~ link ~ There is a military term for that, but I really can't use it begins "cluster****".  Unbelievable!    Stirling     

Israeli prisons inhuman ~ link ~ The Israelis need to change their Grand Strategic direction and decide to stop expanding their territory, to stop trying to lord it over all of the Middle East, and to be a decent neighbor (while maintaining a good defense capability).  That is a Grand Strategy that will give Israel prosperity and security.  Stirling    

America's Last Chance ~ link ~ America has one last chance, and it is a very slim one. Americans can elect Ron Paul President, or they can descend into tyranny.

Why is Ron Paul America’s last chance?

Because he is the only candidate who is not owned lock, stock, and barrel by the military-security complex, Wall Street, and the Israel Lobby.

All of the others, including President Obama, are owned by exactly the same interest groups. There are no differences between them. Every candidate except Ron Paul stands for war and a police state, and all have demonstrated their complete and total subservience to Israel. The fact that there is no difference between them is made perfectly clear by the absence of substantive issues in the campaigns of the Republican candidates.

Keep an Eye on India ~ link ~ This is one form of the 'Mark of the Beast' System that the Bible speaks of.  Stirling

France AAA loss, Sarkozy's worst fear - with video ~ link ~ His fears always has to do with 'him' never with what is good for the people of France!   Stirling      

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services' decision to strip France off its prized triple-A debt rating lands a hard blow on Sarkozy, who had staked his re-election hopes on defending the country's financial standing during the sovereign-debt crisis.

"If France loses its AAA, I'm dead," Sarkozy said to his advisors in October, in a confession which was leaked to the media.

Democratize Banking ~ linkForeclosure defense attorney Neil Garfield says the investors are unlikely to recover on abandoned and foreclosed properties in any case.  Banks and servicers can earn more when the homes are bulldozed—something that is happening in some counties—than from a sale or workout at a loss.  Not only is more earned on credit default swaps and fees, but bulldozed homes tell no tales.  Garfield maintains that fully a third of the investors’ money has gone into middleman profits rather than into real estate purchases.  “With a complete loss no one asks for an accounting.” 

Not only homes and neighborhoods but 400 years of property law are being destroyed by banker and investor greed.  As Barry Ritholtz observes, the ability of a property owner to confidently convey his property is a bedrock of our society.  Bailing out reckless financiers and refusing to hold them accountable has led to a fundamental breakdown in the role of government and the court system.  This can be righted only by holding the 1% to the same set of laws as are applied to the 99%.  Those laws include that a contract for the sale of real estate must be in writing signed by seller and buyer; that an assignment must bear the signatures required by local law; and that forging signatures gives rise to an actionable claim for fraud.
The neoliberal model that says banks can govern themselves has failed.  It is up to county governments to restore the rule of law and repair the economic distress wrought behind the smokescreen of MERS.  New tools at the county’s disposal—including eminent domain, land banks, and publicly-owned banks—can facilitate this local rebirth.

Syria's Assad grants General Ammesty for uprising crimes ~ link ~ Don't count on the globalist/Zionist mainstream news media to cover this story!   Stirling    
Western shock headlines misrepresent Patriarch Kirill regarding Putin ~ link ~ Western mainstream news media serves the interests of the Global Banking Cartel and expansionist Zionism, NOT the truth.   Stirling     
Western and Scandinavian media caused a Christmas shock through their sensational headlines.

Unfortunately, quite a few Russian news outlets repeated these headlines. And an ordinary observant reader got an odd inkling that His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) and Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin could be even supporters of dollar-funded color revolutionary leaders.

Western media didn’t write any references to specific orthodoxy (right mind) and orthopraxis (right practice) of the Eastern Orthodox Church. In the worst cases, the above-mentioned journalists had never even attended an ROC mass.

Unexpected Road Block to Afghanistan Peace: Gitmo ~ link ~ Is that the same Gitmo that Obama promised to close when he was running for president, several years ago???   Stirling     

Negotiating a peace deal with the Taliban after 10 years of war in Afghanistan is hard enough. But the stalemated politics of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility risk effectively killing the negotiations before they even have the chance to end the war.

The Taliban leadership has evidently decided it wants to talk peace terms. Among the things it wants as a gesture of good faith from its U.S. adversaries: the release of five detainees from Guantanamo.

Provisions in the defense bill recently signed into law by President Obama make it difficult to transfer detainees out of Guantanamo Bay, the terrorism detention complex that turns 10 years old this week. But they’re a symptom of a greater obstacle to a peace deal: Congress’ broad, bipartisan allergy to releasing any detainees from Gitmo at all.
