When most people think about rendition or the Second Iraq War, they tend to focus on aggression and human rights abuses perpetrated by the United States or United Kingdom. But what about those lesser-known States who acted as their facilitators?

It’s a little-known fact that one of the most accommodating nations vis-à-vis rendition and the Second Iraq War is none other than the Republic of Ireland, which has allowed over a million US troops to pass through Shannon Airport (located on Ireland’s scenic west coast) on their way to war in Iraq. Similarly, the Irish government has refused to investigate so-called rendition flights landing at Shannon. These flights are conducted by intelligence agencies, often operating under the guise of a civilian shell company, and deliver kidnapped terror suspects to black sites in developing countries where they are – in an appalling re-run of Spanish Inquisition tactics – routinely tortured and mistreated in an attempt to obtain confessions and other information.

Debt Adjusted: EU Rebrands Bankruptcy – 20 February 2014

RT logoPatrick L Young is expert in global financial markets working in multiple disciplines, ranging from trading independently to running exchanges.

Even by the acute standards of Euro-buffoonery, a new report beggars belief as the EU seeks to offend nobody but, as always, ends up running from reality.

The terrifying point about EU policy is how often some tiny kernel of idiocy can be written in a report and then find itself doing the equivalent of going viral amongst the Brussels bureaucrats prior to developing into yet another law to add to the burden of paperwork which strangles enterprise throughout the 28 nation, er, free trade zone. The EU is increasingly bound together by red tape as opposed to being free to trade with the much more competitive economies of Asia and elsewhere.

Laura Bruno – TPP – Wikileaks Has Released Another Bombshell – 20 February 2014

laura-of-the-rocksThanks, Lance!

Anyone who thinks the goal of a One World Government by transnational corporations that control every area of our lives is just “conspiracy theory” needs to watch this video. “It is such a huge threat to every aspect of our lives. … Obama has intentionally tried to hide this from the American public and the press.” Flush the TPP down the toilet with intention. Repeatedly. Forget “fasttrack” unless that fasttrack’s going down the john. Continue reading

 MishMikeShedlockThe Philadelphia Fed Bloomberg Consensus for the Philly Fed manufacturing index was 9.4. The index came in -6.3.

Unfilled orders are also in negative ground, at minus 2.6 for a 1.6 point decline from January. Continue reading
