U.S. in a Bind as Saudi Actions Test a Durable Alliance the New York Times reports. Saudi Arabia is a despotic totalitarian monarchy which forces both men and women to wear these ‘uniforms’ that are very debasing and makes them all anonymous figures in a mob. Worse than North Korea! Women in North Korea can walk in the open showing their faces!
The execution of a top Shi’ite religious leader by the Sunni Saudi royals started this latest row between Iran and Saudi Arabia. The Saudis have very aggressively pushed their noxious totalitarian religious regime across the planet and plan to do it in Europe and North America eventually, too. Why the US doesn’t condemn this and resist this is easy to understand: cheap oil.
The world price of oil has dropped drastically thanks to the Saudis and this hurts Russia which is why the US is pushing for this but the price in Saudi Arabia is very high: the cuts in social services are now causing unrest which is leading to mass murderous public executions there.
The Shi’ite uprising starting in Yemen which the Saudis are suppressing in a most bloody way is part of this tension that is rising rapidly. Since the EU has fallen into a recession thanks to the terror attacks and other actions especially the million man invasion from Muslim countries, we are now going to have a recession here in the US, too, the stock market crashed yesterday right after the Xmas/New Year party.
Meanwhile, in occupied Europe, German women report string of sexual assaults by ‘Arab and North African men’ – Telegraph reports but NOT the New York Times. I used to live in Germany in 1968. I grew up on a ranch taming horses and shooting vermin and hauling tourists out of rivers, etc. Whenever I went to a train station, Muslim males hanging out there would assault me if I was alone and I would amuse myself by tossing them around, mostly down staircases.
But none were in huge mobs. That requires a gun to control.
The debate about immigration is roiling EU and North America and is a huge election issue with the new immigrants being courted by ‘liberals’. Immigrants to make up HALF of London population in 15 years | UK Daily Express reports. Uniformly, Muslim governments forbid birth controls of any sort as well as few to no civil rights for women.
All our long battles for equality are on the line here. It is literally a life and death issue for women. There are several Middle Eastern religions that deny women basic civil rights. The Christian sects, for example, have been finally defeated only for us to see this erode thanks to immigrants who are very anti-women’s rights.
We had a warm fall which meant global warmists went mad with fury but now all is well, it is below zero here on my mountain today. Happy, guys? Why rising temperatures in Greenland is worrying news for scientists — and the world meanwhile in reality land: ‘We would have been frozen’: People of frigid Ukrainian town thank Russia for gas supply. Al Nino years means mainly yo-yo weather as the jet stream is more active up and down.
Amusingly, from Bloomberg News: El Nino’s Peak Has Weather Forecaster Warning of La Nina because this el Nino is not getting stronger and stronger, it has been weakening for the last two weeks and is heading towards an early, not late, decay and termination.
As China’s Terrible Start to 2016 Has Beijing Fighting Market Fires thanks to a classic boom/bust cycle, China Said to Intervene in Stocks After $590 Billion Selloff as people panic. The market ups and downs are normal. Every cycle has everyone wishing the upswing will be forever and as per usual, it isn’t.
Predicting when an upswing will end is an art. Usually, it ends right after everyone joins the market thinking it will rise forever. The classic storyline on Wall Street back when my father-in-law was working down there is, ‘When the shoeshine boy gives you stock tips, the market is about to crash’. He told me that joke way back in 1969.
Funny as hell news: The Final Days of the Bitcoin Foundation? – Bloomberg Business
Bruce Fenton, executive director at the Bitcoin Foundation, opened its Dec. 15 board meeting with a sense of urgency: “We need additional funds if we wish to retain employees.” The numbers didn’t look good. In two years, the foundation had seen at least $7 million evaporate. As of Nov. 30, its total assets stood at $12,553.06.
To sustain the Bitcoin Foundation’s operations, which have included lobbying, putting on conferences, and providing technical support for the digital currency, Fenton urged the group to find ways to raise money quickly. They considered cold-calling ex-members, and Fenton said he’s working on marketing materials for prospective donors to explain the organization’s purpose. “There is no material saying what the foundation does,” he said.
A classic scam/bubble toy. It shot up in value as players in the game used this toy to facilitate various criminal activities or due to ideology thinking making up money not backed by government guns will work, and now it is collapsing as expected. A great deal to do this this is government guns, of course, shutting down illegal operations of various sorts and sending bitcoin operators to prison.
Money is always backed by muscle! This goes under ‘duh’ and it loses value when the ‘muscle’ weakens or gets sly and tries to multiply the money illicitly (printing it, for example). Some people made money trading bit coins but this was a doomed operation due to historical forces at work that are unstoppable and easily foreseen.
