Egyptian Army chief to Morsi: You must step down to avoid a bloodbath ~ link ~ The political situation in Egypt, as well as that in Turkey, are vital to the war efforts of the globalists and Zionists in the Middle East. The political struggles in these two large nations have a profound geopolitical effect. We shall see just how both fully play out. It appears that the drive towards beginning the General Middle East War/WWIII this summer, may be off track. But even that is far from certain in this fluid situation. I have removed the WWIII/etc. waring sings from this blog, but they could go back up any day. Time will tell. Stirling
US President Barack Obama and Chief of US General Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey intervened in the Egyptian crisis early Tuesday, July 2, in an attempt to save the besieged President Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood. Obama called the Egyptian president and Gen. Dempsey phoned Chief of staff Gen. Sedki Sobhi, hoping to defuse the three-way crisis between the regime, the army and the protest movement before it gets out of hand.
The crash of Morsi’s presidency would seriously undermine the objectives of the Arab Revolt pursued by the Obama administration as the arch-stone of his Middle East policy.
The ultimatum was issued on Monday, hours before the military itself warned it would intervene unless he reached an agreement with the opposition.

Portuguese Foreign Minister Portas tenders his resignation ~ link ~ One day after the Finance Minister quit. The wheels are coming off the Eurozone.
Portuguese spreads soar as Cabinet unravels ~ link ~ Following finance minister Vitor Gaspar's resignation, the foreign affairs minister Paulo Portas has just added to Prime Minister Coelho's problems and quit in light of who the PM chose as replacement for Gaspar. Gaspar was one of the key Portuguese policy makers to oversee the country’s bailout program, and in his letter of resignation, noted that he had lost the public's support to continue with the deeper-than-expected recession and above-target public deficit developments. Mr. Gaspar's replacement will be the current treasury secretary, Maria Luís Albuquerque, and that is what sparked the Portas to exclaim, "the Prime Minister decided to follow the path of mere continuity at the Finance Ministry. I respect that but disagree." Coelho is due to make a statement at 1900GMT but in the meantime, Portugal's bond market has spiked its most in 10 months relative to its risky neighbor Spain back above 200bps.
Stocks and Euro slides on Merkel waring Greek bailout cash may be delayed ~ link ~ As we noted here, the IMF has already warned on non-payment (and a 3-day ultimatum has been set) and with the election so close, it seems Frau Merkel is between a populist rock (keeping the leash tight and explaining that they may not get the full amount but may get a tranched amount based on smaller performance hurdles) and a hard place (of saying nein and losing Europe).
Gitmo detainees ask US court to end Force Feeding ~ link ~ The entire "Gitmo" detention process is one of the darkest events in American jurispurdence. It is really about educating the American people that the US Government can now imprison them without trial with no end to the imprisonment and no appeal. It is about fascism and the end of the American way of life, about the end of the American Constitution and American Rights, by the Global Banking Cartel and the Zionists. Stirling

'Criminality in ranks': UK calls for crackdown on plummeting police standards ~ link ~ I remember, some 30 years ago, when I first became the Scottish Editor of Burke's Peerage and owner of a Scottish castle, that you could always count on the British 'Bobby' to be fair and above board. This does seem to be less and less the case now days. But what can you expect, when you have people like Blair and his successors in office. Let me tell you, I have had many dealings with UK Cabinet Ministers, including some of the most senior ones, in multiple governments. And it is most shocking anymore, that all they are interested in is the 'donations' that they require to get the law followed (or gotten around, if that is what you want). This is so very Third World, and yet they still act so pompous about things. It has become totally shameful. I am glad I played a key row in forcing Tony Blair to resign as Prime Minister, I just wish the evil little lying bastard had went to prison instead of making many millions giving speeches. The old Greek saying "A fish rots from the head down" is really appropriate here. Stirling
