It appears, just as we warned, that Brexit was indeed the first of many dominoes. Even before the Brexit result, a poll by Ipsos Mori showed that the majority of people in France and Italy want to at least have a referendum on leaving:
Meanwhile, over 40% of Swedes, Poles, and Belgians are in the same boat.
But now, as Martin Armstrong notes, Brussels simply went too far. They cross the line moving from an economic union to a political subordination of Europe. Now eight more countries want to hold referendums to exit the EU – France, Holland, Italy, Austria, Finland, Hungary, Portugal, and Slovakia all could leave.
Update: Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he will not step down, adding he will not “betray the trust” of those who elected him, according to Sky News.

As we detailed earlier…
“Jeremy [Corbyn] is a good and decent man but he’s not a leader. And that’s a problem,” exclaims Senior Labour lawmaker Hilary Benn who was fired after calling on Jeremy Corbyn to quit as party leader. His firing has triggered revolt among Corbyn’s shadow cabinet… Continue reading »

“The tide of change has just turned inexorably.
We have started a journey of unknown adventure and undoubted discomfort and unrest.”
And “it” has all been planned a long time ago and foreseen by many seers and by “it” I mean …
Financial/economic collapse, hyperinflation, civil war, revolution, followed by WW3.
In 2014, Christine Lagarde gave a speech on “the magic number 7.” It, along with work by Jonathan Cahn, led us to the Shemitah seven-year cycle and the Jubilee year, which the globalist elites are well aware of.
What we’ve discovered since is that there is even more to the “magic number 7” than just years… it appears to correlate right down to months, weeks and days. Continue reading »
Alfred de Zayas, the U.N.’s Independent Expert on the Promotion of a Democratic and Equitable International Order, is assigned the task to apply the standards of international law to proposed treaties, to determine whether they’re in accord with international law. On Friday, June 24th, he issued his finding on three large proposed treaties regarding international trade among Atlantic countries: TTIP, TISA, and CETA. Earlier, on February 2nd, he had issued a similar finding on the proposed TPP treaty between Pacific countries, and his conclusion there was the same: that the proposed treaty violates international laws, and is inconsistent with democracy.

Yesterday we warned that the biggest threat to the UK political process in the aftermath of the Friday referendum is neither an arguably fake petition to hold another referendum (it won’t happen), nor the so-called buyer’s remorse on the side of “Leave” voters, especially with ComRes confirming a negligible 1% of those voters were “Unhappy” with the outcome…
Vote split // On the #EUref result (Remain / Leave):
Happy: 4% / 92%
Unhappy: 88% / 1%
Indifferent: 7% / 5%

…but rather a surprising discovery in a UK government Command Paper laying out “The Process of withdrawing from the European Union“, which goes through the process of invoking the infamous Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union, and notes that there may be a rather substantial hurdle to the actual Brexit process: a Scottish and/or Northern Irish veto to Britain’s separation from the EU. To wit: Continue reading »
The Arctic was warmer in the late 1930s.
The media keeps shouting that the “global warming” that took place during the late 1990s was unprecedented, and therefore definitely man-made.
But that is simply not true.

An elderly Turkish woman carrying a placard saying “We are turning our backs on indecent Erdogan” at a protest in 2015 was sentenced to almost a year in prison.
Turkish newspaper Hurriyet is reporting that a 62 year old woman who was carrying a sign saying “We are turning our backs on indecent Erdogan” at a protest in 2015 has been sentenced to a nearly one year prison term. Continue reading »
Iraq War veteran Representative Tulsi Gabbard tells The Nation why US intervention will only worsen Syria’s humanitarian crisis.
Of all the myths that pass for conventional wisdom in Washington in the late Obama years, perhaps one of the most intractable is the idea that the president has “done nothing” concerning Syria.
According to a Robert S. Ford, who served as US Ambassador to Syria (2010–14), and is now a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute, the Obama administration has followed a “hands-off” policy regarding Syria, claiming that the president and other senior administration officials have “been reluctant to use all tools available to create pressure” on the Syrian government. And last week The New York Times reported that 51 mid-level State Department officials authored a “dissent cable” to Secretary John Kerry urging the United States to carry out “military strikes against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.” The Times noted further that Foggy Bottom’s pinstriped dissidents have long “chafed at the White House’s refusal to be drawn into the conflict in Syria.” Continue reading »
While global financial markets, not to mention Europe’s political elite, rushes to preempt the global political fallout from Brexit, the UK itself is undergoing a chaotic and very much ad hoc politcal transformation, one which has seen no precedent in UK history, in the short day since David Cameron announced his resignation while the Chancellor George Osborne appears to have vaporized, just days after spending every waking moment prognosticating about doom and gloom should the Leave camp win.
In the middle of this transformation is none other than Boris Johnson, the leader of the successful “Leave” campaign, who however has cause to celebrate tonight because according to the Sunday Times, the former London mayor has won the backing of a key colleague to replace David Cameron as prime minister. Justice minister Michael Gove, who together with Johnson led the “Leave” campaign, called Johnson on Saturday to say he would back him for the leadership of the ruling Conservative Party, Reuters added.

The EU and its associated financial institutions were built on the premise that no one would escape. That’s the long and short of it.
But of course, nations could get out if they decided to.
Which is what just happened in Britain.
And now that it has, elites and their fear-mongering press outlets are moaning and shouting and whining: “You fools, do you have any idea what you’ve just done? You’ve thrown a wrench into the structure. Are you crazy?”
Translation: “We’re in charge. We’re the lords in the castles. You’re the peasants in the fields.” Continue reading »
A federal disaster declaration was approved for three of the hardest-hit counties in flood-ravaged West Virginia after a historic deluge killed at least 24 people there.
The floodwaters swept away cars, cut power to thousands and trapped hundreds in a shopping center after 10 inches of rain pounded parts of the state in just 24 hours.
It also submerged a golf course, forcing the PGA to cancel the upcoming Greenbrier Classic.

China’s developing space program took another major step forward on Saturday with the launch of its Long March 7 rocket, a new class of booster capable of lifting up to 13.5 metric tons to low-Earth orbit (LEO). The primary payload of the flight was a dummy version of its next-generation crew capsule and some CubeSats. Continue reading »
Tesla Motors has reportedly signed a non-binding agreement with Chinese government-owned company Jinqiao Group to construct a Tesla production plant in the city of Shanghai.
The majority vote by Britons to leave the European Union was an act of raw democracy. Millions of ordinary people refused to be bullied, intimidated and dismissed with open contempt by their presumed betters in the major parties, the leaders of the business and banking oligarchy and the media.
This was, in great part, a vote by those angered and demoralised by the sheer arrogance of the apologists for the “Remain” campaign and the dismemberment of a socially just civil life in Britain. The last bastion of the historic reforms of 1945, the National Health Service, has been so subverted by Tory and Labour-supported privateers it is fighting for its life. Continue reading »
“With Brexit, Israel Loses a Major Asset in the European Union,” Haaretz reports today.
“Britain helped moderate and balance EU decisions about the peace process, blunt criticism and even harness the member states against anti-Israel moves at the UN; voices sympathetic to the Palestinian cause could now become more dominant.” Continue reading »
Preface: We’ve previously shown that 9/11 couldn’t have been an inside job, because:
- 9/11 was thoroughly and exhaustively investigated by the 9/11 Commission, Congress and U.S. scientific agencies
- No one could have foreseen 9/11
- Government officials didn’t have time to stop the 9/11 attacks, once they realized America was under attack
- It couldn’t have been a conspiracy, because no one could keep such a big conspiracy secret … someone would have talked
- Our government wouldn’t do anything like that, and
- Our free press would have reported on anything that outrageous
But many people still believe that the World Trade Center buildings which collapsed on 9/11 were brought down with controlled demolition. This essay shows they can’t possibly be right.

It sure is amazing how lucky the Clinton’s have got when people are going to testify against them and then they die.
A she was due in court Monday with his Chinese businessman co-defendant Ng Lap Seng, who is charged with smuggling $4.5 million into the US since 2013 and lying that it was to buy art and casino chips.
Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration. (Ng was not charged with any crime.) Continue reading »

Emerging science points to multiple and interacting factors that have the potential to disrupt developmental pathways and create susceptibilities to disease and disability. Acetaminophen, a commonly used over-the-counter medication, is already known to interfere with hepatic metabolism and is the leading cause of acute liver failure. Research suggests its toxicity may start at lower doses than previously recognized and have second-generation effects. Recent research has found that acetaminophen is also an anti-androgenic agent with the potential to affect the developing reproductive, immune and neurological systems. New studies suggest acetaminophen may be linked to the development of asthma and autism. Continue reading »
