Inherent Autonomy: Succession Movements Intensify in Europe ~ link ~ The Brexit vote has opened a 'can of worms', the can existed before this, but it is now OPENED! Stirling
The Brexit Vote triggers an existential eruption of EU: Disintegration of the European Union is practically irreversible ~ link ~
With Hollande's approval rating at about 11%, and Merkel lucky she is not tarred & feathered, the Front National leader Marine Le Pen has pledged to hold a French referendum. Hollande rejected Le Pen's call for a refendum today during their meeting; prompting the following from the leader of France's far-right National Front party:
"We will see at the presidential election (next year) which candidates commit to organize a referendum.
You know I am one of those because for the past four years now I've said that six months after being elected, I would organize a referendum on the exit (of France) from the European Union, and that I would use these six months to negotiate with the European Union its transformation into a Europe of the nations, giving back to the French people four essential elements from its sovereignty: territorial, economic, monetary-budgetary and legislative."
The central bankers and their compatriots at the EU, IMF, White House/Treasury, OECD, G-7 and the rest of the Bubble Finance apparatus have well and truly over-played their hand. They have created a tissue of financial lies; an affront to the very laws of markets, sound money and capitalist prosperity.
Obama names LGBT landmark as a US National Monument ~ link ~ Obama is not the first gay or bi-sexual president, certainly George Bush II was one, but he is 'out-in-front' in pushing the pro-LGBT agenda that most people find distasteful and are religiously opposed to!!! He serves the interest of his puppet masters, the Khazarian Globalists here, who seek to destroy traditional Christian values and beliefs and the entire European/Pan-European system of nations, values, economies, freedoms, and Christian heritage!!! We do NOT have to allow this demonic crap to rule the day...the Brexit vote is an example that the public can win against the criminals and sickos!!! Stirling
Obama had previously highlighted the significance of Stonewall in his second inaugural address, weaving the battle for gay rights into a larger tapestry of civil rights for women and African-Americans.
Designation of the Stonewall monument comes just days before the first anniversary of the 2015 Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states. It also follows less than two weeks after 49 patrons at a gay bar in Orlando, Fla., were killed in a mass shooting.
Pope Francis says Catholic Church should apologize to gays ~ link ~ I continue to be shocked by the theology of this pope. He has said that Christians should not evangelize Jews, which is a slap in the very face of Christ Himself and of his Church for 2,000 years; he has yet to end the 800 year rule of celibacy, which is absolutely necessary to reform the Church and clean out the gays and stop the rape of boys by Catholic priests; and now he wants the Church to apologize for maintaining its historic theology on homosexuality!!! The simple fact of the matter is that he is a puppet of the Khazarian Global Mafia and is pushing their immoral agenda. He is the worst pope of modern times and the worst of several recent bad popes!!! Stirling
He told reporters that the Church had no right to judge the gay community, and should show them respect.
A Tale of Two Asset Classes: Gold Miners Soar as Banks Crash ~ link ~ Check out the graphs at the link. Stirling
The following tables illustrate one of the dilemmas of mainstream money management: The vast majority of financial advisers and portfolio managers are big fans of bank stocks because finance is, in their minds, a crucial if not the crucial form of wealth-creating activity in the modern world. So the big names in the field — Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan, etc. — are generally seen as safe places to put client capital.
Gold and silver, in contrast are fringe, primitive, atavistic concepts that are, at best, “insurance” against some kind of 100-year flood that can’t be predicted and probably won’t happen. But some clients still like such things so what the hell, we’ll allocate 1% of the idiots’ money to it to shut them up. (1% is literally the proportion of global capital invested in precious metals.)
Unfortunately, that’s credit bubble thinking. Banks are dominant forces in an economy only when that economy is creating an unhealthy amount of credit. When the process exhausts itself the banks tank, and terrified capital flows back into “primitive” safe havens. Like today:
Friday: We just witnessed the Greatest One Day Global Stock Market Loss in World History ~ link ~
More stock market wealth was lost on Friday than on any other day in world history. As you will see below, global investors lost two trillion dollars on the day following the Brexit vote. And remember, this is on top of the trillions that global investors have already lost over the past 12 months. It is important to understand that the Brexit vote was not the beginning of a new crisis – it has simply accelerated a global financial crisis that started last year and that was already in the process of unfolding. As I noted on Friday, we have been waiting for “the next Lehman Brothers moment” that would really unleash fear and panic globally, and now we have it. The next six months should be absolutely fascinating to watch.
According to CNBC, the total amount of money lost on global stock markets on Friday surpassed anything that we had ever seen before, and that includes the darkest days of the financial crisis of 2008…
