Bankers are bracing for long hours and angry mobs as pay day approaches in India. “We are bracing ourselves for payday and fearing the worst,” the chief executive officer at Laxmi Vilas Bank said, concerned the situation has gotten out of control.
Last week, Washington State Senator Doug Ericksen announced plans to propose a bill in January that would criminalize certain protests as “economic terrorism,” to be punishable as a Class C Felony.The proposed bill would penalize protesters who engage in “unlawful disruption of transportation and commerce,” and if passed, those found in violation of the law could face punishment of up to five years’ imprisonment, a fine of up to $10,000, or both.

A homeless man ‘froze to death’ on the streets of Birmingham just a day before UK charity Shelter warned more than 250,000 people in England will be homeless this Christmas as high rents, benefit cuts, and a worsening housing crisis create the perfect storm.
The body of the unknown man was found in the West Midlands city at 11.30pm GMT on Wednesday, the coldest night of the year.
It is understood the body, found in John Bright Street, is that of a 30-year-old man with no fixed address.
Figures compiled by Shelter reveal that 255,000 people across the country are forced to live in hostels and other types of temporary accommodation, or to sleep rough on the streets. Continue reading »
Total fertility rates, which can be defined as the average number of children born to a woman who survives her reproductive years (aged 15-49), have decreased globally by about half since 1960. This has drastically shaped today’s global economy, but a continued decline could have much more severe long-term consequences.
Do they know something that the rest of us do not? There are tens of millions of ordinary Americans that are feeling really good about the future now that Donald Trump has won the election, but meanwhile the elite are feverishly constructing luxury bunkers at a pace unlike anything we have ever seen before. So why are so many among the elite preparing for an imminent “apocalypse” when tens of millions of other Americans are anticipating a new era of peace and prosperity? Are they smarter than most of the rest of us, or are they simply being paranoid?
Without a doubt, something is going on among the elite. Earlier today, WND published an article that discussed the fact that wealthy people “are quietly moving away from major cities” all over the globe because of concerns about security… Continue reading »
NEARLY half of all Germans want to hold a referendum on their nations EU membership – with a survey suggesting almost two-thirds of Germans are unhappy and want change in the crumbling Brussels bloc.
A survey carried out by TNS Infratest Politikforschung found 42 per cent of Germans believe there should be a referendum on their EU membership and that 62 per cent of Germans think the EU is “heading in the wrong direction”.

“When I visited Sverige recently, it was quite clear the effects of the migratory issue (rapes. robberies, violence & social breakdown) were being dumbed down by the complicit media as “It’s not here, but a minor issue in the South around Malmo” denial.
It has been a politically correct Police State since the sixties.”
The Attorney-General’s Office has been asked to appeal the sentence of a child migrant, alleged to be 15 years-old, who was convicted of raping a five year-old boy in Derby this month, Breitbart London can reveal.
The migrant, who told his victim he would “break him into pieces” if he told anyone about the attack, escaped a custodial sentence entirely, with circuit judge Jonathan Bennett handing down a three-year rehabilitation order.
So soon after controversial court rulings on Brexit and Article 50, the decision has sparked widespread public outrage, raising further questions about the lack of judicial accountability in Great Britain. There have even been calls for out of touch judges to be subject to retention elections, as is common in Japan and many American states. Continue reading »
A priest in the German city of Leipzig who works with underage migrants has revealed that Muslim migrant children constantly bully their Christian counterparts.
58-year-old Catholic priest Andreas Knapp stated that the majority of migrant youths he supports in his study club are Muslim but reports that the Christian minority is being actively persecuted by Muslim children, reports German radio broadcaster Deutschlandradio Kultur.
In one case, a Christian boy was so grievously bullied by Muslim classmates at a school for integration that he had to change schools. He said the Muslim children were “disrespectful” of Christians and that they even “hated” Christians who had come from the Middle East. Continue reading »
With snowflakes everywhere across America seemingly content to burn the Stars & Stripes to protest democracy’s decision to elect what they have been told is a racist, homophobic, anti-semitic, sexist, tax-fraud as president…
… President-elect Donald Trump has put his foot down in this seemingly most unpatriotic of endeavors:
Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!
Last week, the newly formed group “Veterans Stand for Standing Rock” called on veterans to nonviolently stand up to militarized law enforcement at the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. Since its initial call to action, the veterans’ movement has grown exponentially.
Last week, the Facebook event, which was launched by Army veteran Wesley Clark Jr. and former Marine and Baltimore cop-turned-reformist, Michael A. Wood Jr., received widespread media attention. This boost helped increase the number of attendees from a couple hundred veterans to their maximum capacity of 2,000.
A Chicago cop said he was in fear for his life when he shot and killed a 19-year-old man Wednesday, claiming the man twice pointed a gun at him as he was running away.
But no gun has been recovered as of Friday.
And the Cook County Medical Examiner confirmed that Kajuan Raye was shot in the back as well as multiple times in the stomach.

Raye then took off running, prompting a foot chase, wihch ended when the cop pulled out his gun and shot him dead.
Greek banks have proposed a series of measures to combat tax evasion, strengthen the electronic transactions and limit the use of cash in the economy, and as KeepTalkingGreece.com reports, one of the measures proposed is a special tax on cash withdrawals.
Bankers reportedly stress that cash money can easily and largely be channeled in the black economy. Therefore, a tax on cash withdrawals will drastically reduce cash transactions and by extension the black economy. Continue reading »
More than half of all New Yorkers don’t have enough money saved to cover them in the event of a lost job, medical emergency, or other disaster, according to a new report by the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development.

As The Gothamist reports, nearly 60 percent of New Yorkers lack the emergency savings necessary to cover at least three months’ worth of household expenses including food, housing, and rent, but that statistic isn’t spread evenly across the five boroughs.
Well who could have seen this coming? Just as we noted, the slippery slope towards full government control in a cash-less society is where Indian PM Modi is heading following his chaos-creating demonetization efforts of the last two weeks. While massive opposition protests are planned tomorrow, Modi remains indignant, as Reuters reports, “we can gradually move from a less-cash society to a cashless society…this is the chance for you to enter the digital world.”
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday urged the nation’s small traders and daily wage earners to embrace digital payment channels, as a cash crunch following the government’s surprise ban on high-value bank notes drags on. Continue reading »
In and around Stuttgart alone there were 105 rapes, assaults and robberies of women and 77 against children in the refugee centres, but the local government admits that the number of unreported cases is “significantly larger”.
This should be a cause for grave concern to all Westerners, as to the kinds of men we continue to let swarm into our nations: men who even move beyond the refugee centers to continue their assaults on Western women.
Part of the problem is the inability of men to accept the freedom accorded to their wives, daughters and siblings in the west.
“180 rapes, assaults and robberies against women and children in just ONE German city”, by Allan Hall, UK Express, November 25, 2016:Continue reading »
As reported earlier, the man behind today’s gruesome attack at Ohio State University, in which he plowed a car into a crowd of people on campus and subsequently attacked bystanders with a butcher’s knife, and which some suggested was inspired by recent ISIS propaganda, was identified as 19 year old naturalized Somali Refugee Abdul Razak Ali Artan.
It’s that time of year when over million Chinese citizens line up to take The Guokao, China’s national civil service exam, which took place on Sunday, November 27. This year, the competition reached a record of 1.48 million people competing for some of the most coveted jobs in China. For some positions, there is only 1 place available for 10,000 participants.Continue reading »
“Listening to the leading figures of the Democratic party establishment, however, you’d never know it. Cool contentment is the governing emotion in these circles. What they have in mind for 2016 is what we might call a campaign of militant complacency. They are dissociated from the mood of the nation, and they do not care… What our modernized liberal leaders offer is not confrontation [with corporate corruption] but a kind of therapy for those flattened by the free-market hurricane: they counsel us to accept the inevitability of the situation.”
“Too many of America’s elites-among the super-rich, the CEOs, and many of my colleagues in academia-have abandoned a commitment to social responsibility. They chase wealth and power, the rest of society be damned.”
“This elite-generated social control maintains the status quo because the status quo benefits and validates those who created and sit atop it. People rise to prominence when they parrot the orthodoxy rather than critically analyze it. Intellectual regurgitation is prized over independent thought. Real change in politics or society cannot occur under the orthodoxy because if it did, it would threaten the legitimacy of the professional class and all of the systems that helped them achieve their status.
-Kristine Mattis, The Cult of the Professional Class
The continuing reaction of the liberal elite to the repudiation of the Democratic establishment by their traditional constituencies of the young and working people is a wonder to behold. They thrash back and forth between a denial of their failure, and disgust at everyone else they can blame for it. cf Paul Krugman, The Populism Perplex.
It could not possibly be because of anything they might have done or failed to do. And so they are caught in a credibility trap. Continue reading »
