DEUTSCHE BANK’S $10-BILLION SCANDAL: How a scheme to help Russians secretly funnel money offshore unravelled.

Deutsche Bank | Anti Corruption Digest

Eric Ben-Artzi, a former risk analyst, told the Securities and Exchange Commission that, had the bank’s true financial health been known in 2008, it might have folded, as Lehman Brothers had. Last year, Deutsche Bank paid the S.E.C. a fifty-five-million-dollar fine but admitted no wrongdoing. Ben-Artzi told me that bank executives had incurred a tiny penalty for a huge crime. “There was cultural criminality,” he said. “Deutsche Bank was structurally designed by management to allow corrupt individuals to commit fraud.”

Why Europe Can’t Find The Jihadis In Its Midst

A small, well-organized ISIS cell has been at work in the heart of Europe for years, recruiting criminals, exploiting freedom of movement, and evading counterterrorism efforts. This spring and summer, as multiple attacks rocked Europe, Mitch Prothero spoke to the people shuttling between investigating the crimes that had already happened, while struggling to prevent new ones.

Brigitte Bardot vs. the Burkini: Why are the French so worked up about a bathing suit? Because for France, the beach is more than just a coastline – it’s a symbol of national identity.

Brigitte Bardot vs. the Burkini

The beach has long been a powerful symbol in France and a repository of French national identity. In addition to filmmakers, the beach has inspired French artists, writers, and philosophers. Famous Frenchmen have even claimed beaches beyond their own borders: Painter Paul Gauguin left his mark on Tahiti, for instance; writer and escaped convict Henri “Papillon” Charrière did the same for Venezuela and satirical novelist Michel Houellebecq for Thailand. But just what exactly the beach has stood for has shifted over the years and varied with the context of each era.

The price of Obama’s detachment: Powerlessness has its consequences, from Russia to Iran to Iraq and Syria

... Rap Sheets of 22 Thugs Obama Just PARDONED... Spread This Everywhere

Obama made all this perfectly clear in speeches at the U.N., in Cairo and here at home in his very first year in office. Two terms later, we see the result. Ukraine dismembered. Eastern Europe on edge. Syria a charnel house. Iran subsuming Iraq. Russia and Iran on the march across the entire northern Middle East.

Present at the Creation of ISIS: The never-told-before story of the creation of ISIS

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/28/AQMI_Flag_asymmetric.svg/2000px-AQMI_Flag_asymmetric.svg.png

Since its creation, we have learned about the Islamic State from its enemies. Its story has largely been told by those fighting the group in Iraq and Syria, traumatized civilians who have escaped its brutal rule, and the occasional defector. That is about to change. This is the story of Abu Ahmad, a Syrian operative for the Islamic State who witnessed the group’s lightning expansion firsthand and spent months among its most notorious foreign fighters. He provides unique insight into how Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s political scheming paved the way for the Islamic State’s expansion into Syria, al Qaeda’s efforts to stem the group’s rise, and the terrifying weapons in the arsenal of the self-proclaimed “caliphate.” Some names and details have been omitted to protect Abu Ahmad.

When rulers despise the ruled: Why it won't end well for the Global Elite

Στο Μόναχο άλλη είναι η αλήθεια και ...

Global elites no longer seem to care about their countrymen. They’ve cashed out into a separate world, where consequences don’t apply to them, and where loyalty to other members of the global elite outweighs such petty concerns as patriotism or loyalty to one’s fellow-citizens. It’s like The Hunger Games: the Capital City, and its hangers-on, flourish, while the provinces starve.

The rising power of China will create new political fissures in the West

How America Can Balance China’s Rising Power in Asia - WSJ

The era when globalisation seemed like a process that could create only common interests between China and the west is over. It is now giving way to an epoch that looks altogether darker and more dangerous.

The music industry and the digital revolution

The music industry has come a long way since Radiohead allowed fans to pay what they wanted for an album. But there is still plenty of digital disruption going on. Tech companies such as Kobalt provide an alternative route for musicians to find fans and manage their money—without having to rely on a record deal.

Policing what you say is the first step in regulating what you think

Barack Obama making speech

Personal censorship is driven in part by the need to be emotionally assimilated by the collective. When we break the rules on being politically correct we are subject to ostracism. After we have edited taboo words from our language, it isn’t long before we edit them from our thought process. Eventually we not only edit what we say, but what we think as well. We are so motivated by our infantile need for acceptance that we feel the sting of guilt not just for what we have said, but, importantly, for what we think.

The Myth About Women's Pay Being Less Than Men's And The Lies That Created The Myth

The Other War On Women: Republicans Voice Opposition To Equal Pay ...In America, the Obama administration claims that women "still make 77 cents for every dollar a man earns," a claim echoed by the National Committee on Pay Equity, the American Association of University Women and other progressive groups. The 23% gap implies that women work an extra 68 days to earn the same pay as a man. But the numbers bandied about to make the claim of widespread discrimination are fundamentally misleading and economically illogical.

ISIS Orders Its Franchises to Kill Christians

160812- Obaji-Boko-Haram-tease

The so-called Islamic State has different strategies in different parts of the world, but in Africa and in Europe, certainly, its core objective is becoming clear: to kill Christians. Its long-term goal: to provoke a new Crusade, reviving the holy wars of many hundreds of years ago in the belief that this time around Islam will win.

The Myth of Lone-Wolf Terrorism: The Attacks in Europe and Digital Extremism

ISIS Blamed for Rise in Lone Wolf Terrorist Attacks - TheLip.tv

Observers have repeatedly erred by definitively categorizing attacks as lone-wolf operations when they would later turn out to be connected to broader cells or networks. At a minimum, individuals labeled lone wolves are often in communication with other militants, sometimes using encrypted services that are difficult to detect and decipher. There is a danger in rushing to label operatives as disconnected from others, as doing so can cause analysts to overlook the networks that facilitate and encourage attacks. It is time to put the myth of the lone wolf to rest.

Left Planned to Stage Violence to Bring Down Trump

DNC slide (Wikileaks)

Much of the mainstream media, following the Clinton campaign’s talking points, have accused Donald Trump of suggesting that Second Amendment supporters assassinate Hillary Clinton. In deflecting that false charge, Trump’s own spokesperson, Katrina Pierson, made an interesting observation: that it has been the Democrats’ strategy all along to associate Trump with violence. And for that purpose, it did not matter whether the violence was caused by Trump supporters, or by his opponents.

THERE ARE NO SUCCESSFUL BLACK NATIONS: And the indignity and helplessness of blacks in America won’t end until we have a first-world African nation to lift up our people.

There Are No Successful Black Nations

Racism is not limited to the Unites States. There is no non-black nation, even among the most liberal ones, where the black man is dignified. History dealt us an unforgiving blow in the incursion of foreigners into black lands. The Arabs enslaved tribes and nations and then colonized and evangelized them. Then came the Europeans, who, persuaded the Africans were of an inferior race, divided up the continent over lunch in Berlin in 1884. They carted off a large population of its people — sometimes leaving entire villages almost empty — and brought those who remained on the continent under their rule. So complete was the transformation that no black nation retained its ancestral nationhood, national language, or national identity. And today we often hear of how China or India or some other nation is “taking over” Africa economically. There is almost no nation whose majority is of a different race that has not spat on the face of the black person, at one time or the other.

INTELLECTUALS ARE FREAKS: Why professors, pundits, and policy wonks misunderstand the world

Intellectuals are Freaks | The Smart Set

For generations, populists of various kinds have argued that intellectuals are unworldly individuals out of touch with the experiences and values of most of  their fellow citizens. While anti-intellectual populists have often been wrong about the gold standard or the single tax or other issues, by and large they have been right about intellectuals.

FINANCIAL DISASTER AHEAD: the upcoming global banking catastrophe

Banking Disaster Recovery | Bank Disaster Recovery | IT Disaster ...

Regular, everyday people like you and I fork over our hard-earned savings to banks. They take our money and do some of the most insane things with it…whether loaning it to jobless, homeless people, or buying the negative-yielding debts of bankrupt governments. You and I would never do anything so foolish with our own funds. Yet we hand everything over to banks and give them full license to engage in this madness.
