The relic of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina will be at the Cathedral in Boston today. Just my opinion, but this seems to me to be the final insult launched against this great saint. You might know that P…
“Hillary would not be having fever dreams about swinging from a noose … if she didn’t know, deep inside, that her actions, and the actions of those monied interests whom she serves, are noose-worthy.”
Ron Paul asks a very good question. From Paul, on a guest post at theburningplatform.com: Last week’s announcement of a record-breaking US aid package for Israel underscores how dangerously foolish and out-of-touch is our interventionist foreign policy. Over the next ten years, the US taxpayer will be forced to give Israel some $38 billion dollars […]
The ‘balkanisation’ of the Middle East serves the Jew and the Jew alone, in aiding the creation of Greater Israel – the Oded Yinon Plan – which is a synthesised working action of Theodore Herzl’s vision for Israel to be greater than it’s current size and in turn become a superstate to rival any empire that […]
Wayne’s bother, Verne, was transferred in late August 1944 to the 221st Combat Crew Training School at Alexandria Army Air Base located about five miles northwest of Alexandria, Louisiana. Prior to that, he had been stationed at Lincoln, Nebraska with the 616th Flying Training Group. There he had received B-17 and B-24 aircrew instruction
On the evening of August 29, 1944 at Alexandria Army Air Base , he wrote his stepmother, whom he called “Sis”:
Received a letter from you tonight and was so surprised I was almost through supper before I discovered I had eaten twice as much as planned.
That was a real letter, Sis. Please, please write more of them.
A lot of water has passed under the bridge since I was last home. Personally, I don’t like it so much but my opinion doesn’t count much among the millions of others and this man’s…

China is trying hard to move Asia out of the US orbit, and it’s a good bet it will succeed. From Pepe Escobar at sputniknews.com:
The G20 meets in tech hub Hangzhou, China, at an extremely tense geopolitical juncture.
China has invested immense political/economic capital to prepare this summit. The debates will revolve around the main theme of seeking solutions “towards an innovative, invigorated, interconnected and inclusive world economy.”
G20 Trade Ministers have already agreed to lay down nine core principles for global investment. At the summit, China will keep pressing for emerging markets to have a bigger say in the Bretton Woods system.
But most of all China will seek greater G20 backing for the New Silk Roads – or One Belt, One Road (OBOR), as they are officially known – as well as the new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).
So at the heart of the G20 we…

Mother Teresa of Calcutta, a Roman Catholic nun who founded a religious order devoted to caring for the poor and sick, was, by many accounts, an extremely kind-hearted woman. But whether or not she should become a saint, as Pope Francis will proclaim her today (Sept. 4), is a more controversial matter. The process for…
coup that favors elites, screws the people
The Morning Star has published a No Coup in Brazil Initiative statement condemning the coup in Brazil and the actions of interim President Temer. The statement has been endorsed from over 115 Briti…
We’re getting less and less incremental GDP per dollar of debt. SLL argues that the marginal value of debt has already gone negative. Harry Dent says the zero point arrives next year. Either way, expanding debt only compounds our economic travails. From Harry Dent at wolfstreet.com:
Forty-five years and counting: We’ve been on a debt spree since the early 1970s when we went off the gold standard, covering every possible angle. Trade deficits, government deficits, unfunded entitlements, private debt – you name it! Our total debt has grown 2.5-times GDP since 1971.
How could economists not see this as a problem? How is this the least bit sustainable?
It isn’t. We’re hurtling toward a massive financial crisis, and all we have to show for it are financial asset bubbles destined to burst. And when they do, they’ll wipe out the artificial wealth they’ve created for many decades… in just a…
