Half of southern Italians at risk of poverty:

One in four Italians is at risk of poverty or social exclusion, a new report from national statistics agency Istat has found. According to the estimates, almost 17.5 million people in the country live in poverty.

Families with children are more at risk of poverty than ever, with those having at least three children at highest risk. Data shows that last year 48.3 percent of them were struggling to make ends meet. That figure was up from 39.4 percent in 2014.

Overall, the poverty rate in Italy has remained stable at 28.7 percent compared with 28.3 percent a year earlier. Continue reading »

Renzi Loses Italian Referendum By Wide Margin; “Northern League” Calls For Early Elections – Live Blog:

To summarize, this is what has happened so yet another major blow to the European political status quo:

  1. Italy PM Renzi lost by a huge margin, with the latest estimate somewhere around 59% voting “No” to Renzi’s proposed constitutional referendum.
  2. In a speech moments after the results were announced, Renzi confirmed he would hand in his resignation tomorrow, adding he isn’t available to lead a caretaker government in a blow to many sellside forecasters he would do just that
  3. As Bloomberg notes, the scale of the loss and how quickly it happened cast a huge shadow on the fate of the continent headed into 2017.
  4. Italy’s opposition parties, from Grillo’s Five Star Movement to Calvini’s “Northern League” to Berlusconi’s Forza Italia, seem to be aiming for early elections as soon as possible, “after making a few tweaks to the current electoral law.” Grillo said this can be done in “one week.”
  5. The blow out result of the referendum is a confirmation that anti-euro populists are ascendent in Europe. Expect more long nights in the months to come, especially in France and the Netherlands which are the two next big potential dominoes to fall.
  6. What’s next? According to Bloomberg, “Italy is in for a period of high instability. The prospect of a prolonged, bitter electoral campaign won’t do any good to the country’s already anemic recovery. Not to mention its battered banks who may have to ask for public aid.”
  7. The EURUSD dropped to the lowest level since March 2015, sliding uner 1.05 briefly, but has since recovered some of its initial losses:

“The experience of my government ends here,” Renzi said in a televised address to the nation after early voting results suggested his ‘Yes’ camp may have lost the referendum by as much as 20 points. Continue reading »

“Juncker says no to more referendums on EU membership because he fears for his pension.

((- Juncker ORDERS Europe: Don’t hold any more referendums as voters will choose to LEAVE))

However there are two separate issues here and referenda for a variety of issues will be used all over Europe to dilute and divert emotion and attention away from the federal elephant in the room.”


The Future of the Eurozone Could Be Decided on December 4th in Austria and Italy:

Is this the most important time in the EU’s history?

Italy and Austria take votes at the beginning of December that could destabilize or even end the euro and the EU itself.

This is part of a destabilizing trend that we’ve long noted and anticipated, some 16 months ago with the destruction of the EU’s Schengen agreement that used to stand for free-travel throughout Europe.

The two potential upheavals are the Italian referendum and the Austrian election, both of which are set to occur on the same day, December 4th. Continue reading »

Italy Report: ‘More Immigrants = More Crime’:

There is a direct correlation between the number of immigrants entering the country and the rise in the crime rate, according to a report published Wednesday by the Italian daily, Il Giornale.

In its front page report titled “More Immigrants = More Crime,” the newspaper cited results from a recent study conducted by the Confcommercio group on the statistical connection between crime and immigration.

The report found that in a determined area, if the number of immigrants increases by 1 percent, the crime rate in the same area goes up by 0.4 percent. Continue reading »

1,400 Migrants Rescued by Italian Coastguard in One Day:

(REUTERS) – Some 1,400 boat migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean from North Africa to Europe have been rescued so far on Tuesday, Italy’s coastguard said, after at least 11 overcrowded boats set out from Libya amid calm seas.

Rescuers have also recovered eight dead bodies. The coast guard ship Diciotti took seven corpses from a rubber boat, while one body was recovered from another rubber vessel by the Topaz, a ship run by humanitarian group Migrant Offshore Aid Station (MOAS).

Italy’s coastguard coordinated the rescues off the Libya coast, including helicopter airlifts of three migrants in need of immediate hospital care, a spokeswoman said. Continue reading »

Italy Set to Break Yearly Immigration Record in 2016:

With more than 168,500 migrants landing on Italian shores since January and more pouring in every day, 2016 promises to break previous records for the number of migrants arriving on the peninsula.

For the year-to-date, 2016 arrivals are up a significant 17.28 percent over the same time last year, and 4.41 percent compared to the previous record year of 2014.

Italy is now only 1,500 persons away from breaking the 2014 record of 170,100 migrants and refugees who landed in Italy that year. Continue reading »

Is the ‘big one’ about to hit Rome? Series of tremors and volcano’s reawakening prompt fears of major quake:

A series of earthquakes which struck central Italy in the past two months has sparked fears that the country’s capital may be at risk from a “big one”.

The tremors – all followed by powerful aftershocks – proved the final straw for a number of important architectural landmarks, including the Abbey of Sant-Eutizio in Umbria, and damaged several churches and buildings in the heart of Rome, including the Colosseum

Whilst scientists say there is no risk that Rome will be hit by a “big one”, something different may be threatening the Eternal City – a dormant volcano. Continue reading »

Via Jim Stone:

UPDATE: ISRAEL IS SAYING THE EARTHQUAKES IN ITALY WERE “RETRIBUTION”

LIKUD DEPUTY MINISTER KARA: “I’m sure that the earthquake happened because of the UNESCO decision.”

My response: That is tantamount to self incrimination!

And with the earthquake tech more than just myth and rumor, we all know what that means! Read the last line of the linked article, which is “After recovering from the earthquake, Kara met with the Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, and tried to convince the cardinal to change the Vatican’s position on the UNESCO decision.” WHAT??!!?? I can imagine what was said: “Do you want us to wipe you out with earthquakes? We have the tech. We do it wherever we want. HOW MANY MORE EARTHQUAKES DO YOU WANT?

The answer was NO, we are not changing our decision on Palestine. AND THEN THE EARTHQUAKES RESUMED, A FULL MAGNITUDE HIGHER.

We Want Armani and Hugo Boss: Migrants Demand Designer Clothes:

African migrants who took the streets in protest and blocked traffic in Venice this week have been demanding designer clothes, the president of the Cooperativa Sociale Onlus has revealed.

Lorenzo Chinalleto, whose cooperative hosts migrants at the Hotel Byron in the Venice province, said migrants respond with displeasure when receiving clothes from Catholic charity Caritas and other charitable bodies, because the goods are unbranded.

He explained: “Unfortunately they come to Italy with the asylum reception systems of northern Europe as a model. When they arrived we gave them clothes, standard clothes. Continue reading »

Report: As Satanism Grows, Italy Experiencing a ‘Boom’ in Exorcisms:

The number of exorcisms has been rising sharply in Italy, with some 500,000 Italians requesting an exorcism each year and not nearly enough exorcists to meet the rising demand, according to recent reports.

The archdiocese of Milan in northern Italy has doubled the number of its exorcists, while an exorcism hotline has been launched in Rome, but those in the field claim it isn’t nearly enough.

Rome’s most famous exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth (pictured), died last month and his successor, Father Vincenzo Taraborelli, says that he cannot keep up with the daily requests for liberation from demonic influence. “Padre Vincenzo,” as he is known, handles some 30 “clients” a day, and is calling on the Church to appoint more priests as exorcists to share in the mission of satanic deliverance.

The professor also stated that there is extensive propaganda by traffickers in African countries promoting emigration to Italy.

“In the countries of sub-Saharan Africa there are advertisements inciting people to go to Italy, explaining that everything here is free. And indeed it is,” she said.

“I imagine the phone calls these guys make home to their friends, confirming that everything is actually given them for free,” she said.

Italian Taxpayers Billed Record €700 Million for Immigrant Costs:

The Italian government has passed a new law that will cost taxpayers a record €700 million to defray the expenses of migrant welcome centers and centers for retention of “irregular” foreigners.

The measure allocates €600 million for associations that deal with the first reception and housing of migrants, which is added to the €100 million budgeted for host municipalities to help deal with their costs in handling the influx of new migrants.

A lack of government funding has meant that since last March unpaid bills for migrant services have been piling up and the new allocation of funds is meant to liquidate those debts while granting hosting centers a certain measure of breathing room, according to reports in the Italian media.

Overflowing Italian Shelters Force Migrants to Stay on Rescue Ships:

The dramatic situation of Italy’s overpacked migrant welcome centers has obliged authorities to delay debarkation of hundreds of new arrivals, leaving them for the moment on board the rescue vessels that brought them.

On Thursday, a Spanish Civil Guard ship carrying 1258 migrants rescued off the coast of Libya landed at Cagliari, on the Italian island of Sardinia. After a two-day sea journey, the vessel Rio Segura was told that all the migrant shelters are full and therefore the migrants would have to remain aboard the ship until provisions could be made for their housing.

The Coming Collapse Of The World’s Biggest Economy:

The stage is set for the collapse of the world’s largest economy – the European Union. The trigger: Italy’s exit from the euro currency.

The Financial Times recently put it this way:

An Italian exit from the single currency would trigger the total collapse of the eurozone within a very short period. It would probably lead to the most violent economic shock in history, dwarfing the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy in 2008 and the 1929 Wall Street crash.

If the FT is even partially right, it means we’re looking at a possible stock market crash of historic proportions. It could devastate anyone with a brokerage account. But it could also present enormous opportunities to profit.

Here’s how it could happen… Continue reading »

As Immigrants Flood Italy, More and More Italians Emigrate Out:

The number of Italians emigrating from their home country more than doubled between 2010 and 2014, according to a new report, coinciding with a parallel increase in immigrants entering the country.

Italy has been inundated with migrants over the past several years, notably from sub-Saharan Africa, a trend that is showing no signs of abating. What is less obvious but equally striking is the reverse trend in Italians choosing to leave their country in search of greener pastures.

This week the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) released its 2016 International Migration Outlook report, which shows Italy among the countries with the most marked increase in emigration in recent years.

Italy’s migration outflow grew from 125,730 persons in 2013 to 136,330 in 2014, the report states. And in just four years—from 2010 to 2014—emigration of Italian citizens more than doubled. The main destination countries of the emigrants were the United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland and France. Continue reading »
