Foreign Influence? Soros & Co. Drop $500k On UK ‘Fact Check’ Org

0

by Virginia Hale, Breitbart:
UK fact-checking group Full Fact has been given a large cash injection by the Open Society Foundations, and Omidyar Network to produce two new tools to counter what it calls “misinformation”.
Full Fact announced the $500,000 (£386,000) donation on Thursday, explaining that the money is to build and launch ‘Live’ and ‘Trends’, automated tools which the charity hopes will make their ‘fact-checking’ findings much more influential.

Live is based on the premise that “people, especially politicians” tend to repeat themselves, according to Full Fact communications manager Mevan Babakar, and will monitor real-time sources such as live TV subtitles.

Bill Gates Changes His Tune: ‘Brussels Must Make it Harder for Migrants to Reach EU’

0

by Carter, The Gateway Pundit:
Bill Gates, yes, that Bill Gates, the man who previously called on nations to take in MORE immigrants recently changed his tune saying that the EU must make it “harder” for migrants to reach them.

Though this sounds out of character for Gates, it really isn’t. He said that Brussels must make it more difficult for migrants to reach the EU, and in that same breath he emphasized the fact that they must instead spend more foreign aid to “fix the push-factors at the source”.

India: Cash is Back

by Pater Tenebrarum, Acting Man:
But the Crisis has Deepened and has Become More Entrenched (Part XIV)

Nobody for President

On 17th July 2017, India will elect a new President through a vote of the elected representatives. The two real choices are between Ram Nath Kovind and Meira Kumar. Afraid of looking completely ignorant, I asked a few people who Kovind is. No-one knew of him and people only vaguely remembered Ms. Kumar.

“Color Revolution” Comes Home? Are Americans Also the Victims of “Regime Change”?

by Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers, Global Research:
The United States has perfected the art of regime change operations. The US is the largest empire in world history with more than 1,000 military bases and troops operating throughout the world. In addition to military force, the US uses the soft power of regime change, often through ‘Color Revolutions.’ The US has been building its empire since the Civil War era, but it has been in the post-World War II period that it has perfected regime change operations.

Getting Down to Business

from Rogue Money:
“Today, Chinese-Russian relations have entered the best period of their development. This is a result of the long-term efforts of both sides. As they say, “the more people put twigs into the fire, the brighter its flame.” — President Xi Jinping, Moscow, July 4, 2017

Presidents Putin and Xi held a joint news conference on July 4th. The signing of agreements and deals that link arms between the two countries in the new Silk Road world is nothing new. But this time it is apparent that business leaders from both the private and public sectors are being woven even more strongly into the silk.

The Unspeakable Crime of V. Orbán

0

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:
Some people seem like they never learn how to play the game. At the top of the list in the European Union these days is Hungary and her stubborn Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán. He just doesn’t seem to get it. He doesn’t understand that it’s not “European” to defend the sovereign rights of your citizens and your nation. No matter how the EU faceless technocrats hovering around the dubious Luxembourg EU President Jean-Claude Juncker try to educate Orbán and his government, he doesn’t seem to get it.

The past year has been a tough one for the Brussels’ EU political correctness Supremos. First Mr Orbán insisted on going through with a national referendum. How anti-European! Letting citizens vote on issues affecting their lives in their own countries! What a dangerous idea if that ever spreads. Next thing you know women might demand genuine equality and to be taken seriously as human beings. Horror!

Enter The NatGas Cartel – Jim Willie

by Jim Willie, Gold Seek:
The King Dollar is mortally wounded. Many notice but the masses seem largely unaware. Since 1971, the Gold Standard has been removed from its anchor position. But since 1973, the Petro-Dollar has taken its place. It has called for crude oil sales led by the Saudis and OPEC to be transacted in USDollar terms, for oil surpluses to be stored in USTreasury Bonds, and for some kickbacks from the Saudis to the USMilitary complex for weapons purchases. Of course, the US is ready willing and able to create strife and to foment wars whereby the Arab oil monarchs will need more weapons. Since 2014, many events have pointed to the crippled condition of the important link between the USDollar and crude oil. The price has plunged by 50{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of more, and not recovered. It is currently lurching in the nether bounds near the $45 level. Anything less than $65 to $70 per barrel is very dangerous for keeping the oil sovereigns afloat and for keeping the US energy sector solvent. Witness the Wall Street banks having tremendous problems with impaired bonds and toxic energy portfolios. They seem not resolvable. They cannot keep the oil price over $50, a sign of their impotence.

Parents to Pay the Price when Australian Housing Bubble Bursts

0

by Wolf Richter, Wolf Street:
Home prices jump to new record amid surging supply and declining real wages.

“The government, opposition, central bank (RBA), prudential regulator (APRA), FIRE sector (finance, insurance, and real estate industries) and their economists predictably deny the existence of a housing bubble. They firmly assert a severe downturn in the residential property market cannot and will not occur” — LF Economics.

So when home prices sagged on a monthly basis in May, the fretting began. But now it is ascribed to a seasonal quirk because in June home prices jumped again, according to CoreLogic:

Haley: US Will Use Military In North Korea “If It Must”

from ZeroHedge:
The war drums are beating louder, and as US Ambassador to the UN Nicky Haley said moments ago as she speaks live (webcast), the North Korea launch is clear, sharp military escalation and the US will use the full range of its capabilities in North Korea including military force, “if it must.” Her key soundbites from Reuters and Bloomberg:

HALEY: PREPARED TO USE THE FULL RANGE OF ITS CAPABILITIES TO DETER NORTH KOREA, INCLUDING MILITARY FORCE “IF WE MUST”
HALEY: U.S. WON’T HAVE PATIENCE FOR WATERED DOWN UN RESOLUTION

She also said that an escalated response needed in wake of ICBM launch, and sent a clear warning to China over supporting N. Korea whose launch shows North Korea “does not want to be part of a peaceful world”:

NORTH KOREA LAUNCHES AN ICBM AND WITH THAT WAR DRUMS BEAT LOUDER/SAUDI ARABIA REJECTS THE QATARI NEW PROPOSAL AND THE BLOCKADE CONTINUES IN THE GULF
