Russia tells Ukrainians: Referendum or we can't protect you - As the Ukraine coup government is preparing to issue a State of Emergency ~ link ~ The relative calm of the last two weeks as US talking-heads proclaim Ukraine 'fixed', Russia 'under control', and Europe 'recovering' is being obliterated this morning. The storming of various non-Crimean Ukrainian city government buildings suggest round two of the push is beginning and Russia is wasting no time explaining how this will go down. Russian Senator Viktor Ozerov stated that "Russia has no right to [send peacekeepers] unilaterally" to Eastern and Southern Ukraine (unless the UN agrees)... but... "Russia is interested in stability in Ukraine. At the same time, the will of the people must be documented. A referendum is the most democratic way of expressing one's will." In other words, "we can't help you unless you hold a referendum to annex." Stage 2 is beginning... and it seems Ukraine is getting it as they are preparing to issue a state of emergency.

He also blasted the law of the Ukraine’s state language which deprives the Russian-speaking population of the right to use its language at the state level. He called this situation “idiotic.”

All part of a plan for taking the entire planet into a 21st Century war with advanced weapons of mass destruction!!! Stirling
In the days after the Crimean referendum, we presented our take on "who is next" in the great annexation scramble and said that the most likely region to enter the USSR 2.0 next is Moldova's Transnistira region, where in a 2006 referendum some 97% of the population had voted to become part of Russia.

Tony Blair 'was fully aware' of the CIA kidnap and torture program ~ link ~ That this 'program' is and was totally immoral and repugnant to any decent person gives us a good insight to the true nature of people like Blair. They serve evil and do so willingly in order to get power and wealth for themselves...they need to be in prison instead of racking in millions like Phony Tony! Stirling

Over the weekend the world was gripped by the drama surrounding the mysterious murder-homicide of the former CEO of Dutch bank ABN Amro and members of his family, and whether there is more foul play than meets the eye.

AG, Juergen Frick, was shot dead in the underground garage of the bank located in the city of Balzers.

US mortgage originations plunge to lowest on record ~ link ~ also see this related story ~ link ~ But the government says we are in a recovery from a Recession...they don't lie do they...hahahahha! Stirling
New mortgage originations fell over 23% month-over-month and a stunning 47% year-to-date according to Black Knight (formerly LPS). As they show in their detailed presentation, with a 65% year-over-year drop, new mortgage originations are at their lowest since their records began and what is perhaps more concerning is prepayment speeds signal further declines are ahead and the ratio of serious deterioration to foreclosure (along with huge numbers of loan mods due to reset) suggest the housing market is anything but recovering fundamentally with the average loan in foreclosure now 2.6 years past due.
The Oligarchy doesn't care about democracy - Just rigged markets ~ link ~ They also don't care about how may peoples lives are ruined by their policies! Stirling
Through thorough research and incisive writing, Nomi Prins has revealed how tightly Wall Street and White House policy have been aligned for more than a century. This is a difficult relationship to nail down, but Prins – as one reviewer noted – “followed the money.” As a result, All the Presidents’ Bankers is a must-read blockbuster of a book that names names and nails down the reality that US domestic and foreign policy is largely driven by the interests of economic hegemony and consolidated wealth.
