Lacher des Tages: berweisungen innerhalb Europas ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Lacher des Tages: berweisungen innerhalb Europas gehen jetzt in nur 15 Sekunden! Also theoretisch. Praktisch nur bei teilnehmenden Banken. Und die Sparkasse nimmt noch nicht teil, denn:

"Das erfordert eine ganz neue Bankenabwicklungssoftware, zitiert die Zeitung Die Welt etwa den Zahlungsexperten Markus Jrg von der Helaba. So msse die Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe rund 20 Millionen Euro in die Anpassung ihrer Infrastruktur stecken. Ab dem 10. Juli 2018 will man bei den Sparkassen bereit fr die schnellen Zahlungen sein.
Alter Schwede! GANZ NEUE SOFTWARE!!!1! 20 Millionen!!!

Aber hey, damit kann ich leben. Ich finde das gut. Ich bin schon lnger dafr, dass die Banken mal abgewickelt werden. Wenn die Software dafr uns 20 Millionen kostet, ist das ein guter Deal.

Andrew Neil just made an absolute tit of himself on Twitter "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The most infuriating thing about Andrew Neil is that we all know that he's well capable of being a ferocious interviewer, but his pro-Tory and pro-Brexit biases prevent him from holding right-wing politicians and Brexiteers to account in the same way as he savages people he's ideologically opposed to.

His pro-Brexit bias is as obvious as it is understandable, after all he's a right-winger who has worked for all three of the main pro-Brexit mainstream media propaganda outlets in his time (the Murdoch empire, the Daily Mail, and the Barclay brothers' Press Holdings).

Anyone who is aware of Neil's background must be continually on the look out for the pro-Tory and pro-Brexit spin he puts on the news.

On the evening of Monday 20th November Neil posted a bizarrely hyperbolic tweet claiming that the breakdown in the German coalition government talks represented the worst political crisis in Germany since the 1940s, which he claimed to be even more severe than the Brexit mess the UK has been enduring for the last year and a half.
The reason he came out with this hyperbolic nonsense is obvious. The latest delusional Brexiteer trope is that a weakened Germany would somehow be good for the Brexit negotiations, as if the rest of Europe are just go...


Why economic suicide is a bad idea "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

It seems such a ridiculous thing to have to explain, but the outburst of Twitter outrage over the failure of Ian Murray's economic suicide amendment kind of makes it necessary to explain why economic suicide is actually a bad idea.

The likes of ex-Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron and the usual suspects from the Labour right bombarded Twitter with howls of protest after the amendment to the Taxation (Cross Border Trade) Bill by the right-wing Labour MP Ian Murray was defeated by 311 votes to 76.

Tim Farron put up a Twitter rant claiming that he'd voted to keep Britain in the Customs Union, but in reality he did no such thing. An amendment to keep Britain in the Customs Union would have specified that Britain should stay in the Customs Union, but what Ian Murray's ludicrous amendment sought to do was to force the UK to continue behaving as if it was in the Customs Union, even if we end up out of it!

Murray's amendment sought to prevent the UK from imposing tariffs or quotas on imported goods from the EU, regardless of whether the hard-right Tories contrive the "no deal" cliff edge Brexit they're craving or not.

However, the World Trade Organisation rules are clear that countries can't offer favourable trade terms to other countries unless they do it through a formal trade agreement, so that means the Murray economic suicide amendment would have forced the UK to drop import tariffs and quotas on all imports from anywhere in the world, whilst leaving the rest of the world free to impose tariffs and quotas on UK exports!

The UK trade deficit is already enormous, so just imagine the impact of eliminating all tariffs and quotas on imports while simultaneously allowing the rest of the world to impose WTO level ta...

The Labour leadership were absolutely right to oppose Ian Murray's economic suicide amendment "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

When the right-wing Labour MP Ian Murray's proposed amendment to the Taxation (Cross Border Trade) Bill was defeated there was an eruption of outrage amongst the right-wing of the Labour Party and the appalling self-declared centrist types who propagandise for them on Twitter and in the mainstream media.

How they howled and shrieked that some Labour MPs had voted against the amendment designed to stop the UK from imposing tariffs and quotas on produce from the EU.

In reality the vast majority of Labour MPs abstained on the vote, with just 18 voting against the amendment and 28 voting in favour, meaning that the amendment was always going to fail, and was beaten by 311 votes to 76.

The furious centrist narrative was quickly set that the 18 Labour MPs who voted against the Murray amendment were traitors who were determined to force a Tory hard Brexit by ruling out membership of the EU Customs Union. However this  propaganda narrative couldn't be further from the truth.

In reality the Murray amendment would have worked to create an even harder Brexit than even the most foaming-at-the-mouth hard-right Tories are aiming for.

The Murray amendment would have caused a British economic catastrophe by making it impossible for the UK to apply import tariffs or quotas on any products from anywhere in the world, while all other countries could continue to apply import tariffs on the UK!

The reason for this is that if the UK reverts to World Trade Organisation rules (which seems increasingly probable given the shambolic Tory handling of the Brexit process) the WTO "Most Favoured Nation" rule states that unless you have a specific trade agreement, then you must offer the same deal to everyone. So if you've legislated to make it illegal to apply tariffs or quotas on imports from EU countries, then you can't apply tariffs or quotas from imports from literally anywhere else in the world either.

Just think back to...

London Jazz News - CD Review by Sarah Chaplin "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Gilad Azmon and the Orient House Ensemble - The Spirit of Trane
(Fanfare FF1702. CD Review by Sarah Chaplin) 

Fifty years on and its good to know that we have saxophone players in our midst like Gilad Atzmon who are not only brilliant in their own right, but are also capable of channelling the sound, the energy and the extraordinary creativity of jazz giant John Coltrane. Moreover, Atzmon has followed through on his enthusiasm for his muse by bringing out a celebratory album of I want to say supreme richness and quality. The Spirit of Trane is more than an exercise of paying homage to a great mentor, it is also a speculation about some of the places Trane might have gone had he lived longer. 

Coltrane died when Atzmon was only four years old, but at 17, when he took up playing tenor, it was because of Trane. In addition to emulating aspects of the set-up Trane used, this long-held admiration has contributed an expansion of the signature Atzmon sound to encompass the full-throated, languid, melt-in-the-mouth type of edge that Coltrane possessed. A few years back I saw Atzmon perform a Coltrane-inspired set at the Watermill, deconstructing a simple rendition of Scarborough Fairinto a complex polyphonic love affair, before landing it safely back on the runway as if nothing out of the ordinary had just happened. It was mesmerising....

The House of Saud Is Creating the Conditions for Its Own Downfall "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Cross-posted from Moon of Alabama

The Saudi clown prince Mohammad Bin Salman is an impulsive tyrant. But what accounts for his urge to purge the country of any potential competing power center Why does he run a such an activist foreign policy? The answer might be Iran. Not Iran the country, but Iran the system.

Since the U.S. war on Iraq the sclerotic Saudi Arabia continuously lost standing in its region. The Iranian model gained ground. A decade later the authoritarian Arab systems were challenged by the so called Arab spring. While the movements in the various countries -as far as they were genuine- have failed, they were a warning sign for things to come.

Saudi Arabia reacted to the challenges by moving away from a sedate, consensual run family business towards a centrally controlled, supercharged tyranny. The move allows for more flexible and faster reactions to any future challenge. But it also increases the chance of making mistakes. To understand why this endeavor is likely to fail one needs look at the traditional economic and social system that is the fabric of the country. The fate of the Hariri dynasty is an example for it.

Since Salman climbed the throne he has moved to eliminate all competition to his rule. The religious establishment was purged of any opposition. Its police arm was reigned in. First crown prince Murqrin was removed and then crown prince Nayef. They were replaced with Salmans inexperienced son. Economic and military powers were concentrated in his hands. During the recent night of the long knivespowerful family members and business people were detained. The Wall Street Journal reports of a second arrest wave. More higher ups have been incarcerated. This round includes senior military commanders and very wealthy business people.

As the prison for the arrested VIPs, the Ritz-Carlton hotel, is fully booked, the next door Mariott is now put to use. Qualified staff was hired to handle the prisoners:

Once Again NYCs 100 Worst Landlords list looks like my Bar Mitzvah guest list "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

barmitzvah gilad.jpg Share

By Gilad Atzmon

The list of NYCs 100 worst landlords is, once again, overwhelmingly dominated by Jewish names. Naturally, I  wondered whether this bar mitzvah guest list quality also applies to the list of NYCs 100 best landlords. If it does, problem solved. We would assume that since Jews are overrepresented in the NYC rental business, they are amongst the best landlords as well as the worst.

A quick search reveals that there is no official NYC best landlord list. The  Yelp search engine offers something that resembles such a list and it doesnt approximate my bar mitzvah guest list in the least. 

Since the demography of the list of NYC 100 worst landlords is obvious, the list raises the following questions:

1.  How is it possible that there are no academic texts that examine this serious anomaly of extreme over-representation of one ethnic group in this gruesome list?

2.  How is it possible that not one social science graduate student has dedicated his/her PhD to the study of the 40 times over-representation of one ethnic group in the shameful list of abusive landlords?  I ask because an over-representation of 1.3 of an ethnic group in crime statistics has justified academic research and even institutional study.

3.  How is it possible that not one cultural studies scholar has attempted to identify the possible cultural conditions that have led to the concentration of one tribe in this horrid list?

4.  And what about American media? Shouldnt we expect CNN, the NY Times or even to ask the obvious question? What is it about Gilads bar mitzvah guests, why are they so horrid to their tenants?

5.  How can we explain the fact that the NYC based Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) and Jewish anti Zionist outlets such as Mondoweiss that care  for justice and Palestinian rights are blind to the abuse that...

USA - Fluorides toxicity "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

With regard to fluoridation ( Enid Reiman letter of 11/ 14), the real dead horse is the public water fluoridation program itself, not discussion of the issue. Fluoridation is an obsolete and ethically flawed program whose scientific foundation is ever more doubtful.
In demanding evidence of fluoride s harm, the writer ignores a host of readily available studies and news articles that provide just the evidence she seeks.
Deaths due to fluoride in the water? There have been deaths due to water-borne fluoride ( Hooper Bay, Alaska, 1992; dialysis fatali- ties), but the real issue is fluoridated waters long-term toxicity, not its immediate effects. By focusing on the dropdead scenario, Reiman demands a response to a non-issue.
Thyroid disfunction? Fluoride was once used to treat an overactive thyroid, so the suspicion that it might hurt a normal thyroid gland is reasonable. Studies like the one by Prof. Stephen Peckham of the University of Kent in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health in 2015 provide proof that the issue is very much alive.
Diminished intellectual capacity? Again, there are plenty of studies, such as the one in the September issue of Environmental Health Perspectives, a U.S. government journal, by Bashash and others, that should con...

received on 11/20/17

We see that the repressive campaign on the anarchist movement does not cease. Examples are enough: The operation Fnix case in the Czech Republic, the case of the Warsaw Three, charges of bank robbery in Aachen, courts with rebels against the G20 summit in Hamburg and other cases.

Cops, judges, prosecutors, mass-media. They are haunted, imprisoned, robbed, manipulated. This is a challenge to all Revolutionary cells and other groups and individuals. Sabotage the activities of those bastards. Turn them into terrain, technology and structures. Organize resistance. Support the fugitives and their loved ones.

What destroys us will stop by fighting.

Brexit has already cost the average British worker the equivalent of a week's wages "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Ever since the EU referendum Brexiteers have continually promoted the myth that Brexit is not going to be a disaster because the "project fear" predictions of the Remain campaign supposedly didn't come true after the referendum.

The main problem with this myth of course is that the predictions of an economic downturn have largely proven quite accurate since the Brexit vote. 

It's clear that what has actually happened to the economy in the wake of the Brexit vote actually lies pretty much in the middle of what the various Brexit forecasts predicted (see image).

It's also worth remembering that many of the pre-Brexit forecasts were built on the (somewhat naive) assumption that David Cameron would stick to his word and trigger Article 50 on the day after a Leave vote.

So when Cameron didn't actually do that, he dramatically softened the immediate economic impact of Brexit by deferring a significant measure of the economic damage (thus helping to generate the seemingly ubiquitous 'Brexit isn't so bad' trope).

Even though Cameron handed the Brexiteers a huge propaganda boost by renageing on his empty threat to trigger Article 50 on the day after the EU referendum, the Brexit vote still caused a significant measure of economic damage.



P is for Palestine "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

il_570xN.1350435879_kakh.jpg Share

 Reported by Gilad Atzmon

Jews are upset again. The latest kerfuffle is over a kids book called P is for Palestine.

The New York Post reports that a childrens book titled P is for Palestine is infuriating some New York Jewish mothers who charge that its nothing but anti-Semitic propaganda disguised as a kids alphabet book.

Omg. Crazy. Im livid at this, one woman wrote on Facebook. I cant believe its real and in NYC!

Another post reads, You have gall advertising your incredibly politically insensitive book on this site. I guess that supporting the oppressed is what some Jewish mothers qualify as insensitivity.  I wonder how these Jewish mothers would react to my soon to be written - Lexicon of Sex Predators-- I thought Id name it:  W is for Weinstein.

Still another Facebook user wrote, A childrens book on Palestine that doesnt recognized the state of Israel.. . is very sad. This is a bit of an exaggeration. When we talk about Palestine and Palestinians being abused on a daily basis and on racist grounds, we well know who is behind it. We do acknowledge the role of the Jewish State and Zionism.

Author, Golbarg Bashi, a Pace history professor and former Rutgers Iranian-studies instructor, told an audience at a bookstore reading last Saturday, that she came up with the idea for this book after I couldnt find a book about Palestine for children. After the reading, Bashi told The Post, I love ABC books personally, and I have so many of them at home about all kinds of places Mexico, United States, Italy, everywhere.

At least one Jewish parent who attended the reading was supportive of Bashi. Rafael Shimunov, of the group Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, brought his 7-year-old daughter. He said he did not find the book anti-Semitic. Again, we  manage to squeeze out a kosher stamp   from a well meaning Jew. Gossip has it that JVP, IJAN and Mondoweiss have decided to form a new activist group called Jews for Alphabet Books (JfA...

Australia - Letters to the Editor || Warren Woodley Fluoride debate "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

I have read with interest the debate happening in Gunnedah regarding fluoride in the towns water supply. I find this subject very interesting, as many years ago now, I (as an alderman on the Tamworth City Council) was chosen by Council to be a representative on behalf of the Tamworth City Council to an appointment in Sydney Health Department regarding fluoridation in state-wide water supplies. That meant at the time, a trip to Sydney for a meeting once every few months for years.
Tamworth Council was, at the time, particularly chosen as one of several water supplies with fluoride as it had a long history of fluoride in the water in NSW, starting in the 1950s I think. History talks about the decision to put fluoride in the water supply came after talks with people, dentists and public figures in Tamworth.
I took particular interest in this, as it raised its head locally again, like it does in many towns, after some years of fluoridation use, to see what the public still thinks about the chemical which was chosen years before.
Although this is a long time ago, I particularly recall the meetings in Sydney, as the fluoridation people of the State Government were keen to get all towns using fluoride water. At the time, there was a financial benefit available to get started. What happens now, I dont know about that.
Like in Gunnedah today, there were many people not happy about the fluoride in the water supply in the 70s and 80s. The debate has not been raised in Tamworth for many years.
I was married with small children at the time and my wife, with some of her group of friends were not happy about the fluoride, because they themselves had carried out studies that did not look at it in a favourable light.
During those meetings in Sydney, I was a little bit alarmed about how they pushed and pushed to get towns on the scheme. I believed it was a purely personal thing and if people really didnt want it, you shouldnt make them have it. It was particularly interesting at the time, because we (my family) had moved out of town and we were not on Tamworth water supply. The advice to me was that we should take fluoride tablets, otherwise the children would grow up with teeth problems. As it turned out, my children grew up with absolutely beautiful teeth using tank and bore water and still have beautiful teeth today. I must say, my wife, Lorraine, was strict on our children with their teeth cleaning, which makes me think that its more about how the kids clean their teeth than it is about fluoride. Many of our friends had the same experience.
I have read information over the years about fluoride and where it comes from and it does make you wonder why it doesnt cause other health problems in life.

The ECB Resorts to Omissions, Half-truths and Misrepresentations to Defend Draghis G30-Membership "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

By Norbert Hring and cross-posted from his blog

The ECB has answered questions posed by the European Ombudsman to president Mario Draghi regarding his membership and his participation in closed-door meetings of the Group of Thirty (G30), a Group in which the worlds most central bankers and commercial bankers comingle. The 17-page reply manages to evade several questions, is quite selective in the information given and even contains some false statements.

Reacting to a complaint by Corporate Europe Observatory the Ombudsman (which is a woman), started an investigation into Draghis membership, which culminated in 16 written questions to Mario Draghi dated 4 July 2017.

The ECB has answered Ombudsman Emily OReillys letter a few days ago. The reply starts with Preliminary observations which state that The Group of Thirty was established in 1978 as a forum for exchanging views on topical issues related to the functioning of the international economic system, forgetting to mention by whom. A look at the website of the G30 does not answer the question, either. Wikipedia does:

The Group of Thirty was founded in 1978 by Geoffrey Bell at the initiative of the Rockefeller Foundation, which also provided initial funding for the body.

In several instances, the ECB points to the fact that other central bank representatives, like those from the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York are also members of the G30, implying that if they see fit to participate in this group, it should be okay for the ECB too. What they do not mention in this context, though, is the fact that it is only the New York Fed, a private institution owned and controlled by Wall Street banks, which sends a representative. No member of the Federal Reserve Board has become or remained a G30-member while holding this office, at least not during the last few decades. The reason is obviously that strict rules against conflicts of interest in the US do not allow a high-ranking public official to be in such an intransparent group together with high ranking private sector representatives

Exclusive: Dr. Paul Connett interview on shocking new fluoride study "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

by Jon Rappoport
November 19, 2017
Explosive: new mainstream study concludes fluorides are lowering childrens IQ.

The study referred to in this interview was published in Environmental Health Perspectives, in September 2017. It is titled: Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6-12 Years of Age. It is often referred to as the Bashash study, after its first listed author.

The study concluded: higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at age 4 and 612 y.

In short, pregnant women exposed to fluorides give birth to children who later show up with lower IQ.

I interviewed Paul Connett, PhD.

From his CV: Paul Connett is Professor Emeritus in Environmental Chemistry at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY. For the past 30 years, Paul has put his scientific knowledge to work by helping (without fee) communities around the world understand the science of controversial issues likefluoridation. In addition to explaining the dangers of these practices he offers details of the alternatives[Dr. Connett is the author of] The Case Against Fluoride (Chelsea Green, 2011, co-authored with James Beck & H. Spedding Micklem).

Paul has researched the literature on fluorides toxicity and the fluoridation debate for 17 years. He helped to found the Fluoride Action Network (FAN).

I found the following items from Dr. Connetts bio fascinating:

In June 2001, Paul (together with Dr. William Hirzy) was invited to debate proponents of fluoridation at the annual conference of the Association for Science in the Public Interest (ASIPI) in Richmond, Virginia. The proponents refused to participate in this debate.

In November 2001, Paul (together with Dr. Phyllis Mullenix) were invited by the American College of Toxicology to debate proponents, but they [the proponents of fluoridation] again refused. On both the above occasions Dr. Connett gave a presentation of the arguments against fluoridation in lieu of the debate.

In March 2003, Paul was invited by the US EPA to present the opponents position in a one-on-one debate on fluoridation to be held at their annual Science Forum in Washington, DC, on May 6, 2003. Despite a six week effort by the organizers of this event, no scientist or official holding a pro-fluoridation position was willing to participate in this debate. In lieu of this debate, Paul provided a power-point presentation to a packed audience, which included 8 congressional aides, representatives from major environmental organizations, EPA officials and the media. The title of Pauls talkFl...


Katshanes Album Launch! "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Katshanes (Yiddish for cabbage stalks, and slang for nonsense), is the name of a band performing Cockney-Yiddish music hall from the turn of the Twentieth Century. Yiddish was the language of Eastern European Jewish immigrants who settled in England from the 1880s and created a vibrant Yiddish culture in Londons East End. In the height of the music-hall era, immigrant songwriters described their experiences of immigration in humorous, moving, feisty and irreverent Yiddish songs. From the York Minster and Wonderland theatres of Whitechapel and Stepney, London Yiddish theatre troupes toured immigrant communities across the country with their witty and poignant Cockney-Yiddish entertainment. These songs give us glimpses of an impoverished, energetic and conflicted community in a state of flux, trying to acculturate to their new home with a new culture without losing their identity. Katshanes perform this material rescued from songsheets and songbooks lying in dusty archives. Some songs have known melodies, others have original music composed by the band. For two years Katshanes multimedia performance of songs and sketches has been entertaining audiences in the UK.

Now their songs have been produced on an exuberant debut CD Dont Ask Silly Questions, which will be launched in London on November 22 nd at Balabam!

Worst Case Scenario Looms As Merkels Jamaica Coalition Collapses "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Cross-posted from Zero Hedge

We warned on Friday that German Chancellor Angela Merkel faced a night of the long knives in her efforts to bring together the co-called Jamaica coalition of four parties and after a desperate weekend of talks, Bloomberg reports Merkels efforts at forming a coalition have failed meaning a second election looms and sending the euro sliding.

As Bloomberg reports, talks on forming German Chancellor Angela Merkels next government collapsed, throwing the future of Europes longest-serving leader into doubt and potentially pointing the worlds fourth-biggest economy toward new elections.

After a 12-hour negotiating session that ended shortly before midnight Sunday, the Free Democratic Party walked out of the exploratory talks, saying the differences with the Green party were too great to bridge.

Merkel has sought for four weeks to enlist the two smaller parties for her fourth-term coalition.

Its better not to govern than to govern badly, FDP head Christian Lindner told reporters in Berlin.

No further coalition talks were scheduled, he said. There was no immediate comment from Merkel.

EURUSD is down aropund 40 pips on the news

As MINT Partners Bill Blain noted previously, Germans are not used to multiple elections and a second vote early next year would be massive negative for Merkel herself  she may even have to stand down if coalition looks like falling. That could be massive shock.

As a result, the prospects for more volatile European peripheral markets, particularly Greece and Italy, are likely to be exacerbated, and we might well see some of the currency and European stock market froth blow away in coming days as the scale of the German Problem becomes clearer.

  • My worst case Germany scenario is a second election early next year, political uncertainty as Mutti Merkel finds herself squeezed out, and a scramble to build a new coalition government in her aftermath.
