    Farmers are saying the situation they’ve been presented with is “dire.” As they battle the worst drought they’ve faced in 100 years, farming families in central-western New South Wales in Australia are facing ruin. According to The Guardian, the farmers in the affected region of central and western New South Wales continue to battle a crippling drought that many locals are calling the worst since 1902. In Warrumbungle Shire, where sharp peaks fall away to once fertile farmland, the small town of Coonabarabran is running out of water. The town dam has fallen to 23% of its capacity and residents are living with level-six water restrictions. There are real fears the town will run dry. Unable to provide food would not only mean financial ruin for the farmers but also less food for those who need it. “It’s a pretty tough old time,” says Coonabarabran farmer Ambrose Doolan. “But if you’re working with your family and everyone is looking out for each other, you count your blessings.” Last year, the Doolan family recorded their fourth-lowest average rainfall and that poor year has been followed by even drier conditions this year. The family has begun selling whatever stock they can and spends their whole day at feeding the cattle that remain because the pastures have dried up. Farmers in this part of NSW are importing almost all food for their livestock from as far away as South Australia as prices rise with demand. The continued cost of buying feed is causing many to question their future on the land. The NSW government recently approved an emergency drought relief package of $600m, at least $250m of which will cover low-interest loans to assist eligible farm businesses to recover. The package has been welcomed but, in the words of a local farmer, “it barely touches the sides”. With the prospect of a dry El Niño weather pattern hitting the state in spring, the longer-term outlook is dire. –The Guardian As the cost of trucking in food for cattle and sheep increases, so will the cost of the products created from them, hitting consumers’ wallets hard.

    John Stormer became known to millions of Americans during the rise to national prominence of Arizona Senator Barry Goldwater. His 254-page paperback book, None Dare Call It Treason, published early in 1964, sold close to seven million copies and became a campaign favorite of Goldwater supporters. He passed into eternity after a year of failing health on July 10th. Born in 1928 in Altoona, Pennsylvania, Stormer studied electrical engineering at Penn State University but tired of scientific endeavors and earned a degree in journalism at California’s San Jose State University. He served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War as a historian and later became an editor for a Missouri-based magazine popular within the electronics industry. He spent most of his years in Missouri. In 1960, during one of his frequent trips to the nation’s capital, he attended a conference where he heard Goldwater and Minnesota Congressman Walter Judd deliver talks focused on the need for conservatism and opposition to communism, two subjects that had already become his own personal concerns. Increasingly worried about the future, he decided to write a small pamphlet dealing with those two topics. And he began to deliver speeches focusing on his increasing worries about the future. In 1962, he accepted employment as the leader of the Missouri Federation of Young Republicans. The more he delved into conservatism and anti-communism, the more he wrote. Eventually, his research became the book that made him famous. Late in 1963, he had completed his heavily documented manuscript, but he had no publisher. Convinced that there weren’t any established publishing firms willing to help him, he sent copies of what he had produced to several dozen people he described as “known conservatives.” Asking them if they would be willing to support a modest printing of his work, he received enough advanced orders to proceed. Published by his own Liberty Bell Press, the book became an instant success even though never having been produced and marketed through the normal book-selling industry. None Dare Call It Treason sold close to seven million copies during and immediately after the losing Goldwater candidacy. Though heavily scrutinized by liberals and pro-communists who sought to discredit its alarming information, its facts were never shown to be false. A group of liberals calling themselves “The National Committee for Civic Responsibility” issued bogus claims that the book was laden with falsehoods, exaggerations, and inaccuracies. Stormer issued a hastily written response showing that his critics were wrong, not him or his book. The ill-advised attack helped sell more copies of he book.

    A Belgian politician says civil war in Europe is “closer than we think” as a result of authorities losing control of entire areas of cities now dominated by Islamic gangs. According to Filip Dewinter, one of the leading members of the right-wing Vlaams Belang party, recent attacks on police are meant to undermine the government, while attacks on shops, bars and cafés are supposed to represent attacks on white culture. “I think the tensions will only increase,” Dewinter told Belgian news outlet Sceptr. “What we see is a sort of ethnic underside of society, people who aren’t raised well and who know nothing else other than rioting, violence and vandalism.” “We have reached a pre-revolutionary condition in which people separate themselves from society into gangs motivated by radical Islam,” he added. “This form of violence can lead to a civil war if governments lose control and white people revolt,” said the politician, warning that, “Complete neighborhoods are already beyond control of the government and the police because Islamic cultural structures have overtaken them.” “This situation is closer than we think, it could erupt really quickly and large cities will be the battlefields,” concluded Dewinter. Dewinter posted a video of a white man being viciously beaten by a gang of migrant-background males after France’s World Cup win as an illustration of the “lynching, violence and vandalism” he sees becoming more common. The gang also targeted a bar. Lynchpartijen, geweld en vandalisme: etnische stadsguerrilla is slechts voorbode v/ raciale burgeroorlog in #Europa. pic.twitter.com/kM8Aj9kGMo — Filip Dewinter (@FDW_VB) July 17, 2018 As we highlighted yesterday, numerous major cities in France were rocked by riots after the World Cup final, and in one incident a young couple were beaten by a gang of Algerian men for the crime of saying “Vive la France!” Dewinter’s concerns are shared by Palestinian-Belgian jihad expert Montasser AlDe’emeh, who warned that western European countries were “importing a civil war” by allowing in huge numbers of Islamic migrants. In 2016, prominent French author Éric Zemmour gave an interview with French radio station RTL during which he revealed details of a program called “Operation Ronces,” under which French authorities are preparing for “civil war” against Muslims in order to “clean up” the country. Zemmour said a highly placed source in the government told him the plan would represent a “new reconquista on their own soil”. In 2015, it was revealed that French security forces were preparing for mass civil unrest and radicalized immigrants taking over entire neighborhoods. The Army is making contingency plans for the “reappropriation of national territory,” winning back areas of cities, in the event of immigrant populations obtaining weapons and becoming openly hostile to authorities. “There are a lot of alienated and angry fourth-generation immigrant kids in the suburbs and the prospect of radicalisation is increasingly likely,” the intelligence source told the Telegraph, adding that highly organized networks of Islamist militants have smuggled Kalashnikov automatic rifles and anti-tank missiles into the country. https://www.infowars.com/belgian-politician-says-civil-war-in-europe-closer-than-we-think/ I have said all along Eurabia was intended to cause a far right backlash and a "Crusade" to destroy islam, it will be sooner now rather than later.

    Italy is a very significant factor in European politics and after a short break there is one again common ground for Rome and Budapest, Hungarian Ambassador to Italy Adam Zoltan Kovacs told Mandiner. According to Kovacs, the Hungarian government sees several positive signs: Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto met his Italian counterpart Enzo Moavero Milanesi and the State Secretary for Family, Katalin Novak also visited Family Minister Lorenzo Fontana in Rome recently. He said it’s clear that regarding the family, the two governments share the same values. Italian Minister of Interior Matteo Salvini and his party, Lega Nord has exactly the same opinion with the Hungarian government about illegal migration. “We can say that we have found an ally,” he stressed. According to the ambassador, the two countries have some different interests regarding migration but they agree on the main principles, such as external border control. https://www.infowars.com/italy-hungary-forge-alliance-over-migration-crisis/

    Confirming the President's concerns, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin issued a warning to China over the recent weakness of its yuan currency on Friday, telling Reuters that the Treasury is closely monitoring the yuan for signs of manipulation. in an interview in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Mnuchin said: “There’s no question that the weakening of the currency creates an unfair advantage for them," adding that "we’re going to very carefully review whether they have manipulated the currency." While we have been hammering on the weakness in global FX (Yuan and Euro specifically) for weeks, this is a story that’s been under the radar but suddenly blew up in the last 24 hours. It is key because, if Trump puts a 25% tariff on Chinese imports but China then devalues its currency 25%, then the net effect is zero. The impact of the devaluation offsets the impact of the tariff and then you’re back where you started. This new currency war seems to be happening. Now that Trump is focused on this, he’s likely to be infuriated and retaliate against China in the currency war and take steps to penalize China for currency manipulation over and above the existing tariffs and penalties for theft of intellectual property.

    Ecuador is preparing to hand over WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the UK in "coming weeks or even days," RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan reported, as political support and sympathy for Assange's predicament have more or less evaporated since the arrival of an administration that largely views Assange as an inherited problem, and would like more than anything to finally be rid of him. "My sources tell Assange will be handed over to Britain in the coming weeks or even days," Simonyan wrote in a recent tweet which was reposted by WikiLeaks. "Like never before, I wish my sources were wrong," she continued. Editor-in-chief of RT: "My sources tell me that @JulianAssange will be handed over to the #UK in the next weeks or days. Like never before I wish that my sources are wrong'' https://t.co/rvN3ne3ifd — WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) July 20, 2018 Earlier this week, reports surfaced in the UK media that high level talks were happening between UK and Ecuadorian officials to try and remove Assange from the embassy. Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan is said to be spearheading the diplomatic effort. Sources close to Assange said he himself was not aware of the talks but believed that America was putting "significant pressure" on Ecuador, including threatening to block an IMF loan, if he continues to stay at the embassy. As things stand, appears Assange will almost certainly be arrested once turned out of the embassy. But as that fate looks increasingly certain, it's important to remember that a UN panel determined that Assange’s stay in the embassy amounted to "arbitrary detention" but it wasn’t enough to change his fate. Furthermore, as we pointed out earlier this week, US imported a record amount of crude from Ecuador last week (a massive unprecedented surge all of a sudden), which begs the question...was there a payoff?

    Fixed it. Very few citizens are born overseas (only a few of those who are will be on welfare) and household finances are managed together so any welfare benefits the entire household.

    After last weekend's significant escalation in Gaza involving Israeli airstrikes on 40 targets, which reportedly killed two teens and wounded over a dozen others, and over 30 rockets launched by Hamas toward southern Israel, all signs are currently pointing toward a broader outbreak of fighting as in new comments the Israeli defense minister is preparing the public for "a large and painful military operation" to come. Israeli officials and media have broadly referred to this latest flare-up of hostilities as the biggest attack since Operation Protective Edge in 2014, and now Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman is warning that Israel is prepared to go to war if Gazans don't cease releasing incendiary kites and balloons in attempts to set communities and farmlands in southern Israel ablaze. Liberman issued the warning at a press conference in the town of Sderot, which lies close to Gaza and is considered constantly under threat by Hamas rockets. The defense minister said, “We see in the newspapers that you don’t go to war over kites and fires. However, any reasonable person who sees a natural grove burned or thousands of dunams of agricultural fields scorched understands that this situation is unreasonable." “We are trying to be considerate and responsible, but the heads of Hamas are forcibly leading us to a situation of not having a choice, to a situation in which we will need to carry out a large and painful military operation — not something that’s just for show, but a large and painful military operation,” he said. Liberman added further, apparently in reference to the international criticism Israel routinely receives over the indiscriminate nature of Palestinian civilian casualties that result from its offensives: “I think that the only people responsible for this are the heads of Hamas, but unfortunately all the residents of Gaza will be forced to pay the price." And while referencing the 2014 Gaza war, he indicated Israel is now prepared to "carry out an operation that is of a much wider scope and much more painful than Operation Protective Edge." Defense Minister Liberman's ominous words follow reports that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) held a large-scale military drill simulating a ground incursion into the Gaza Strip early this week, which The Times of Israel described as follows: The drill in the country’s Negev region, which involved infantry and armored corps, included exercises in urban warfare, with the city of Beersheba serving as a surrogate for Gaza’s cities, Channel 10 news reported. The drill began Sunday and will continue on Tuesday, and exercises include the simulated capture of Gaza City, officials said. Parts of the exercise were also filmed by local media in order to "send a message" to Hamas, according to IDF officials.

    Yup. Govt prevents Free Market from correcting the issues caused by Govt interference, which limits competition, and causes a Downward Spiral. In a Free Market, the employees would have enough competition they could quit and work elsewhere. As it stands, Govt has actually caused interference with people quitting by having fewer and fewer choices until the only choice the employees have is to either work for the Big Business, or be jobless, both of which are subsidized by Govt. Basically, lets say 1000 people, and 10 of those people own businesses. If one doesnt pay, there are still 9 others to choose from. With Govt interference by requiring a License to compete, 2 people own business and employ the other 998 businesses. If the other business doesnt hire the person, the person that wants to quit is screwed by lack of choice. Much like Disney swallows up everything.

    Forget the trade war: in China the fingerpointing over who is responsible for China's economic mess has begun. In an unprecedented turn of events, China's central bank and its Ministry of Finance are having a public feud about the future of the country's monetary policy. Worse, it comes at a troubling time for a deleveraging (at least until recently) China whose economy has slowed sharply, just saw its biggest default of 2018, and is engaged in a bitter trade - and now currency - war with the US, all of which have sent its stock market into a bear market. The feud started a week ago when the head of research at the PBOC, Xu Zhong, commented on July 13 that the country's fiscal policy wasn’t active enough. Zhong claimed that the county's deficit was tightening as evidence that the country's "proactive" fiscal policy isn’t being implemented properly. China is aiming for a 2.6% deficit this year which is tighter than the 3% that China posted last year. In addition, another concern is that taxes for corporations are rising and are growing at a rate that is far higher than GDP. Just days after Zhong lashed out at the Ministry of Finance, the MOF responded in a July 16 article in Caixin, a well known financial magazine. It was written under a pseudonym ("Qingchi") which argued that simply focusing on the deficit was an elementary way of looking at things and that the government had other tools at its disposal that it could use to help support growth. Then, as The Economist notes, the argument got "nasty": Mr Xu had faulted the finance ministry for its hand in China’s debt mess, saying it was pushing the problem onto banks rather than fixing the fiscal system. Qingchi countered that financial institutions have been accomplices, structuring complex loans for local governments. All the while, Qingchi wrote, the central bank has moved too slowly in liberalising interest rates, which would have bolstered market discipline. Hence the most cutting line of the rebuttal: “officials act as if they were managing a small country’s central bank.” The Economist's take is somewhat naive: according to the Rothschild owned publication, the all too public feud between the nation's two top financial institutions - something that never happens in China - while highlighting the problems that China has under the surface, demonstrates that China is "taking the medicine" in a way we'd likely be afraid to do in the U.S. - allowing stocks to fall, allowing defaults on debt and having a good old fashioned deleveraging. We would beg to differ because as we described this week, while Beijing has indeed allowed a record number of defaults to take place, China also just reversed sharply on its deleveraging policy, and is now actively easing by not only cutting rates, but also engaging in shadow QE and also appears to have launched a new flood of (non-shadow) loans. While the trade war with the US is a catalyst, the slowdown in China's economy is a far bigger driver behind this strategic U-turn. In any case, The Economist concludes that any change in policy is going to have to come from Xi Jinping himself who is the ultimate decision-maker in China.
