Debka: Russia evacuates Tartus, also evacuates military and diplomatic personnel from Syria - HIGH WAR ALERT IN ISRAEL ~ link ~ The Leader of the Opposition was called in to sit in the UK Cabinet Meeting ... something that rarely happens, usually on the eve of war. Stirling
Shortly after the DEBKA aired a special video on the Syrian war’s widening circle, Moscow announced Wednesday June 26, that the evacuation which had begun Friday of all military and diplomatic personnel from Syria was now complete, including the Russian naval base at Tartus.
“Russia decided to withdraw its personnel because of the risks from the conflict in Syria, as well as the fear of an incident involving the Russian military that could have larger consequences,” said a defense ministry official in Moscow. He stressed that a 16-ship naval task force in the eastern Mediterranean remains on post and arms shipments, including anti-air weapons, would continue to the Syrian government in keeping with former contracts.
Israel approves Praver Law expelling Bedouins ~ link ~ When the Jews in Israel expel a race of people it is OK but when it is done to them it is horrible...just how does that work??? Stirling
Syria and the Monarchs: A Perfect Storm ~ link ~
The Obama administration’s decision to directly supply weapons to the Syrian opposition may end up torpedoing the possibility of a political settlement. It will almost certainly accelerate the chaos spreading from the almost three-year old civil war. It will also align Washington with one of the most undemocratic alliances on the planet, and one that looks increasingly unstable.
In short, we are headed into a perfect political storm.
USA and Russia fail to reach deal on Syria Peace Talks ~ link ~ When two parties can't even agree on where/when/what/how to talk, they are a long way from making peace!!! Stirling
The Geneva conference on the Syrian Civil War was supposed to take place in June, but the only talks that ever happened in Geneva came today, when the US and Russia spent five solid hours trying to reach a deal on the talks.
Pam Geller: If Iran Attacks, Israel Should Nuke Europe ~ link ~ So on which side to the insane nuts really reside??? So which side is the most dangerous to the Human Race??? Stirling
She is beautiful, articulate, and controversial. But she is also fanatical, and even dangerous. Radical Jewish anti-Islamic activist and Fox News regular Pamela Geller said on her blog in 2010: “And I pray dearly that in the ungodly event that Tehran or its jihadi proxies (Hez’Ballah, Hamas, etc.) target Israel with a nuke, that she retaliate with everything she has at Tehran, Mecca, Medina……not to mention Europe. They exterminated all their Jews, but that wasn’t enough. These monsters then went on to import the next generation of Jew-killers.” By “Jew-killers,” she means Muslims: “This new hatred comes from Muslim immigrants. The Jewish people are afraid now.”
Geller shares a similar view with Israeli advocates of “The Samson Option”: if Israel is to be destroyed by nuclear attack, it should destroy the whole world by unloading its entire nuclear arsenal upon it. (See Does the Bible Predict Israel's "Nuclear Shield?")

An 11 Point Program to stop this Depression and End the War Against Us ~ link ~ Some good ideas but it will take a total revolution to bring them about and the evil ones would kill us all first. Stirling
The Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich studied 40,000 international corporations. They found 1.319 to be significant. And of these there were 147 that ran the world economy. That study also revealed that these 147 companies had interlocking Boards of Directors so in reality we are talking about one corporate entity that runs the world economy, the media and all of our governments.
The key to understanding when these rigged markets will collapse so this current Global Depression can no longer be denied is interest rates. They are going up and this means the ability of the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank to rig our markets will soon crash along with the dollar, the yen, the pound and the euro. When the dollar no longer serves as the world reserve currency, prices will double and America will have to cut spending by a trillion or two dollars a year by savaging benefits.
The Trigger Has Been Pulled and the Slaughter of the Bonds Has Begun ~ link ~ What does it look like when a 30 year bull market ends abruptly? What happens when bond yields start doing things that they haven't done in 50 years? If your answer to those questions involves the word "slaughter", you are probably on the right track. Right now, bonds are being absolutely slaughtered, and this is only just the beginning. Over the last several years, reckless bond buying by the Federal Reserve has forced yields down to absolutely ridiculous levels. For example, it simply is not rational to lend the U.S. government money at less than 3 percent when the real rate of inflation is somewhere up around 8 to 10 percent. But when he originally announced the quantitative easing program, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said that he intended to force interest rates to go down, and lots of bond investors made a lot of money riding the bubble that Bernanke created. But now that Bernanke has indicated that the bond buying will be coming to an end, investors are going into panic mode and the bond bubble is starting to burst. One hedge fund executive told CNBC that the "feeling you are getting out there is that people are selling first and asking questions later". And the yield on 10 year U.S. Treasuries just keeps going up. Today it closed at 2.59 percent, and many believe that it is going to go much higher unless the Fed intervenes. If the Fed does not intervene and allows the bubble that it has created to burst, we are going to see unprecedented carnage.
Markets tend to fall faster than they rise. And now that Bernanke has triggered a sell-off in bonds, things are moving much faster than just about anyone anticipated...
Paycheck to Paycheck and food stamp to food stamp - Study finds 3 out of 4 Americans are one financial emergency away from being OUT ON THE STREET ~ link ~ You can thank the global banksters for this, they are directly responsible...unless you count us all for letting them do it to us!!! Stirling
What higher mortgage rates mean in the Real World ~ link ~ As we pointed out here, the impact on both 'real' housing affordability of surging mortgage rates is extremely significant for the so-called 'housing recovery' but as Charles Hugh-Smith notes, there is a more insidious (inflation-like) effect (aside from the consumer-confidence sapping one we described here). Rising mortgage rates reduce household purchasing power just like higher taxes and inflation. That means there is less household income to spend on other things, and that's not good for "growth."
Fresh street protests erupt in Brazil ~ link ~ One thing that this is showing is that, in the current global economic depression, when a nation erupts into demonstrations and violence, it takes a lot more that political bullshit and promises from the bought-and-paid-for political class to get the masses to 'go home and settle down'. Stirling

Kevin Rudd outs Australian PM Julia Gillard - with video ~ link ~ He won by 57 votes to 45, in a leadership ballot of Labor lawmakers. The change comes ahead of a general election due in September, which polls suggest Labor is set to lose. This is the latest twist in a long and bitter rivalry between the two politicians - but it could be the last as Ms Gillard has said she will now leave politics.
US Supreme Court in historic rulings on gay marriage ~ link ~ And see ~ link ~ The 'supremes' trash traditional human morality and family values to serve the anti-Christian immoral agenda of the global banksters and Zionists!

Our Planet is Exploding with Ocean Dead Zones ~ link
The Gulf of Mexico's Dead Zone will be the size of New Jersey this summer ~ link ~ As I have said many times, this all goes back to the deliberate BP Oil Disaster and the use of millions of gallons of Corexit to sink the hundreds of millions of gallons of crude oil in the Gulf ... which in turn killed the Gulf's Loop Current (a force of nature that had been there for thousands of years).

Pope Francis sets up commission to review Vatican Bank ~ link ~ This guy has a good script but so far, the reality vs the script hype shows it is mostly hype. He has NOT attacked the most glaring problem in the Catholic Church, the 60% of priests that are gay, by ending the 800 year old rule of celibacy in the 2,000 year old institution. Until he does this, I will continue to view him as part of the problem and full of crap. Stirling
