          Italian Coastguard ship with 67 migrants to dock at Italian port      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Rome, July 11 (IANS/AKI) Italian Coastguard's Diciotto vessel carrying 67 rescued migrants will dock at an Italian port on Wednesday, Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli said.

The Interior Ministry said no Italian port had yet been indicated for the Diciotti to dock at.

The migrants will be disembarked at an Italian port and questioned, Transport Ministry sources said earlier.

The migrants, who include 12 Sudanese, 23 Pakistanis, seven Palestinians, 10 Libyans, four Algerians, four Moroccans, two Egyptians, a Bangladeshi, a Ghanaian, a Chadian, a Nepalese and a Yemeni, were transferred to the Diociotto after they were rescued off Libya by an Italian commercial ship, the Vos Thalassa, on Monday.

The Vos Thalassa responded to a distress call from a boat adrift off the Libyan coast and picked up the migrants after arriving on the scene before the Libyan Coastguard. However, it was not allowed to dock in Italy.

Toninelli earlier tweeted that there would be investigations to punish "troublemakers" aboard the Vos Thalassa. Two of the migrants, a Ghanaian and a Sudanese national, allegedly made death threats to the ship's crew members.

It was not clear if the alleged death threats were made before or after Italy's hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini refused to allow the Vos Thalassa to dock at an Italian port.

It was the first time an Italian rescue ship was turned away from an Italian port due to the government's hardline policy and represented a new development in the fiery debate around migration.

Are you serious? Half the left is Assadists, unfortunately. You think they wanted Obama to intervene? I don't know what you are calling "the left" here but Syria could be a great example of how leftist foreign policy can be flawed, but certainly not in the way you think.

I did not write a tome about noninterventionism. If you can only pull that thread out of it and try to look at it in isolation, then I don't know what to tell you. About Rwanda in particular, there is a difference between US intervention and interference and a genuine global force- the UN could in theory be a body that could intervene in preventing genocides when needed. Worth noting that it is usually the US that prevents it from being that body (both in Rwanda where the US refused to acknowledge it was a genocide and in the slaughter in Yemen right now that the UN has been condemning, and in Libya where the US pushed for regime change despite their charter). But this is all nit picking- the larger economic view went straight over your head and you focused on trees and not forests- the point is an understanding of the military industrial complex as the backbone of dollar capitalism. This is not a conspiracy theory, it's literally how our system works and it's why we don't have an opposition party. You asked about this and I explained it best I could.

          Harga Minyak Naik Dibayangi Kekhawatiran Pasokan Libya dan Norwegia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, New York - Harga minyak mentah dunia naik didukung kondisi pasar saham yang lebih baik dari perkiraan dan kekhawatiran pasokan di Norwegia dan Libya. Kenaikan terjadi meskipun dipengaruhi indikasi jika Amerika Serikat (AS) mempertimbangkan permintaan keringanan sanksi minyak bagi Iran.

Melansir laman Reuters, Rabu (11/7/2018), harga minyak mentah berjangka Brent naik 79 sen menjadi USD 78,86 per barel. Sebelumnya, harga patokan minyak global mencapai sesi tertinggi di USD 79,51 per barel.

Adapun harga minyak mentah AS naik 26 sen menjadi USD 74,11, setelah mencapai posisi tertinggi USD 74,70 per barel.

Persediaan minyak mentah AS turun pada minggu lalu sebesar 6,8 juta barel, menurut data dari kelompok industri American Petroleum Institute. Penurunan itu lebih besar dari yang diperkirakan, menyebabkan harga minyak mentah berjangka naik saat penutupan. 

Analis yang disurvei oleh Reuters meramalkan bahwa stok minyak mentah turun rata-rata 4,5 juta barel.

"Kenaikan minyak mentah pada Selasa sebagian didorong oleh kondisi makro ekonomi yang positif dari penguatan ekuitas global," kata Jim Ritterbusch, presiden Ritterbusch and Associates dalam sebuah catatannya.

Ketiga indeks saham utama naik pada hari Selasa. Bahkan indeks S & P 500 membukukan penutupan tertinggi sejak 1 Februari.

Kedua patokan harga minyak mentah semapat turun dari posisi tertinggi dalam empat tahun, setelah Menteri Luar Negeri AS Mike Pompeo mengatakan jika negaranya akan mempertimbangkan permintaan dari beberapa negara untuk membebaskan sanksi terhadap minyak Iran.

Bulan lalu, Amerika Serikat mengatakan ingin mengurangi ekspor minyak dari produsen terbesar kelima dunia Iran pada November.

Namun, harga minyak Brent terdukung langkah pemogokan oleh ratusan pekerja di rig minyak dan gas lepas pantai Norwegia, yang mengarah ke penutupan satu ladang minyak yang dioperasikan oleh Shell.

Sementara itu, anggota Organisasi Negara Pengekspor Minyak, yang dipimpin oleh Arab Saudi, telah sepakat untuk meningkatkan output.

Namun, ada kekhawatiran bahwa hal itu akan menggunakan kapasitas cadangan global dan membuat pasar rentan terhadap penurunan produksi yang lebih jauh atau tak terduga.

Harga minyak dunia naik pada penutupan perdagangan Senin, dipicu kian mendekatnya penerapan sanksi Amerika Serikat (AS) terhadap Iran dan penurunan produksi di Libya.

Harga miyak mentah AS mengakhiri sesi berombak lebih tinggi ditopang ekspektasi penghentian produksi minyak di Kanada akan berlangsung hingga September 2018.

Dilansir dari Reuters, Selasa (10/7/2018), harga minyak mentah AS atau west texas intermediate (WTI) naik USD 5 sen menjadi USD 73,85 per barel. Sementara harga minyak Brent melonjak USD 96 sen menjadi USD 78,07 per barel.

"Kami terus melihat pasar minyak didukung dengan meningkatnya kekhawatiran tentang sanksi terhadap Iran," kata Andrew Lipow, presiden Lipow Oil Associates.

Amerika Serikat menyatakan ingin mengurangi ekspor minyak dari Iran, produsen terbesar kelima dunia, menjadi nol pada November, yang akan mewajibkan produsen besar lainnya untuk memompa produksi lebih banyak minyak.

"Ada kekhawatiran bahwa peningkatan produksi Arab Saudi dan Rusia sekarang mungkin hampir cukup untuk mengimbangi - bukan hanya produksi Iran - tetapi juga gangguan pasokan yang kami lihat dari Libya, Nigeria dan Kanada," tambah Lipow.

Di Kanada, gangguan pada fasilitas produksi ladang minyak Syncrude sebesar 360 ribu barel per hari telah mengurangi pasokan ke Cushing, Oklahoma, titik pengiriman untuk minyak berjangka AS. Persediaan di Cushing mencapai titik terendah dalam 3,5 tahun pada pekan lalu.

Produksi minyak Libya telah berkurang lebih dari 50 persen menjadi 527.000 barel per hari, CEO National Oil Corporation, Mustafa Sanalla, mengatakan pada hari Senin.

“Besok akan berkurang dan lusa tidak akan lagi. Dan kita ke depan akan semakin rendah,”kata Sanalla.

Arab Saudi, sesama anggota Organisasi Negara Pengekspor Minyak (OPEC) dan sekutunya termasuk Rusia setuju bulan lalu untuk meningkatkan produksi guna meredam kenaikan harga dan mengimbangi kerugian produksi global di negara-negara termasuk Libya.

Pasar telah semakinkhawatir bahwa jika Saudi menutupi kekurangan produksi dari Iran, itu akan menggunakan kapasitas cadangan global dan meninggalkan pasar lebih rentan terhadap penurunan produksi lebih lanjut atau tak terduga.


          Wall Street Menguat Terangkat Saham Pepsi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, New York - Wall Street ditutup menguat dengan indeks S&P 500 naik ke posisi tertinggi sejak 1 Februari, sehari sebelum pasar memulai aksi jual. Pendorong kenaikan adalah saham PepsiCo.

Melansir laman Reuters, Indeks Dow Jones Industrial Average naik 143,07 poin, atau 0,58 persen, menjadi 24.919,66. Sementara indeks S&P 500 naik 9,67 poin, atau 0,35 persen, menjadi 2.793,84 dan Nasdaq Composite bertambah 3,00 poin, atau 0,04 persen, menjadi 7.759,20.

Saham PepsiCo melonjak setelah hasil kuartalan perusahaan melampaui perkiraan dipicu kenaikan penjualan makanan ringan.

Adapun indeks konsumen staples naik 1,3 persen dan memberikan kenaikan terbesar ke S&P 500, didorong saham PepsiCo, yang menguat 4,8 persen.

Saham perusahaan lain yang tercatat naik adalah Procter & Gamble yang menguat 2,5 persen dan Coca-Cola sebesar 1,3 persen.

Pada perdagangan kali ini, kekhawatiran atas meningkatnya imbal hasil obligasi dan berpotensi menguatnya inflasi mendorong aksi jual awal Februari, yang menjadi koreksi untuk pasar.

Laporan penghasilan diharapkan menjadi kunci bagi investor dalam beberapa minggu mendatang. Ini menjadi pengalih fokus pasar pada ketegangan perang dagang antara Amerika dan CHina yang terjadi baru-baru ini.

"Mereka menjual karena (berita tarif), dan kemudian memantul kembali," kata Alan Lancz, Presiden Alan B. Lancz & Associates Inc, perusahaan penasihat investasi yang berbasis di Toledo, Ohio.

Sementara harga minyak yang lebih tinggi mengangkat saham energi. Indeks energi S&P naik 0,7 persen karena harga minyak mentah naik akibat gangguan pasokan di Norwegia dan Libya.

          Global wars and insanity fast becoming entertainment      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Mahboob A Khawaja, PhD.Global politics is fraught with man-made catastrophic tragedies. The human beings are supposed to be the most intelligent social animal on the planet. Yet, our proactive plans and actions continue to dehumanize the fellow human beings and engineer conflicts and wars that destroy the existence of mankind. The driving impulse is war economies, individualistic interest and militarization. We come to realize that politics is a game of pretension and always remains problematic. Politicians need problems to get public attention and to argue being the deliverers. Often, they are not except being treacherous, cynical and deceitful to their ideas and ideals and to the public interests they claim to serve.Amongst all the creations on Planet Earth, humans are the only one to claim morality as an attribute of life and value. This reality emphasizes and differentiates us from the other creations of God. If we propel uncertainty in our thoughts and behavior, nothing can stop us from surpassing the limit of immorality and insanity. With knowledge-based 21st century human communications improving global collaboration, we are not moving in the right direction that human logic and truth spell out for our conduct in peaceful relationships. The impulse and actions for cruelty and sadistic behavior are increasingly sending alarming trends for the present and future generations to be informed of our implicit wickedness and resulting failure in global affairs. As humans, we are not thinking or moving for the unity of mankind to be at peace and harmony being the chief creation of God. Unless, we are overwhelmed philosophically to imagine that we are something else than humans populating the Earth by chance. Global Institutions are a Menace to Human Change and Progress The global warlords are waging wars in the name of peace and harmony. Humanity is being crushed and its compound interest undermined by the few for economic greed and militarization. The UNO originated from the belief and commitment to avert futuristic wars by men of new ideas pursuing peaceful means, diplomacy and accountability to the global mankind. How sad and cynical it looks to view the succeeding generations entrapped again into the same mindset of warmongering and power politics as were the sadistic leaders before the Two WW. Like the past, once again few egoistic nations and leaders have manipulated the time and opportunities to dictate and undermine the interests of the mankind.  The global humanity is the net object of their planned cruelty but without any meaningful role to challenge the few global warlords.  America, Russia and few Europeans find freehand to go anywhere and bomb the humanity at will. This is what exactly happening in the broader Arab Middle East war theatre managed by global warlords. The UNO and its Secretary General need to free themselves from captivity and enlarge their role and initiatives for conflict management and peace-making outside the New York established box. Words and Charter's core thoughts are repeated but actions are missing. The UN Security Council could finally visit the Rohinga refugee camps but failed to demand equal treatment from the Myanmar Government. Strange, why the same UN Security Council cannot travel to defuse tensions and bring much needed humanitarian peace between Palestine and Israel. Could it shrink its inherent responsibility for the mismanagement of the Middle East conflict?   Humanity in Search of Proactive Leaders The 21st century global politics have not produced any new leaders of vision and moral integrity to imagine the universal phenomenon of peaceful change and futuristic developments. There are no global organizations managed by people of moral and intellectual vision and courage to serve the interests of the global community. Man is a moral and intellectual being articulating happiness and progress horizontally in peace-time, but when fear of the unknown, hatred and animosity attempt to govern the human consciousness, degeneration replaces human progress. America and some Europeans used to be the leaders of change and new strategies to envisage global friendship, co-existence and harmony of the mankind.  If political greed and egoistic interest are the supreme force, how could they serve the interest and priorities of the global mankind for peace and harmony? At best, many world leaders could best be defined as "hangmen" of the 21st century. It is a frightening trend for the present and future generations to imagine our time and role in human history. The Middle East - the Ancient Hub of Humanity - the Land of Abrahim, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad is being ScorchedThe continuing wars in the Middle East are fabricated and gone out of proportion challenging the human conscience and civilized values that once highlighted the human behavior in conflicts. Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Palestine and Libya are destroyed by political design. Do you remember the paradoxes of history? Do you recall what Sultan Salahudeen Ayoubi did to free Jerusalem and drive out the Crusaders from the ancient lands?  Do you remember how Sultan Salahudeen treated his enemies - King Richard and others even in the battlefield? Do you know that for ages the European feared Salahudeen - the Conqueror of Jerusalem? The contemporary Arab world is devoid of moral and intellectual leadership of any kind. They operate on a dead-ended scale without any role in global affairs. Jerusalem was not US property to be transferred top Israel; it belongs equally to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Under the UNO Plan, Jerusalem is an international city to be shared by all the believers. Yet, the puppet Arab leaders showed no moral courage to question President Trump for moving the Embassy to Jerusalem. One wonders why the Saudi King signed 250 billion worth of military contracts and gave 100 million to Ivanka Kushner when Trump visited the region last August.  It could well be witnessed by the raging sectarian wars in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere. There is no coming of Salahudeen to rescue the entrenched Palestinians. After 70 years of Nakba, they still have No thinking plan, no leadership, no movement for change and freedom except reactionary emotional outbursts. When Jews lived with the Arabs in Spain (Al-Andulsia) for centuries, they were part of the Arab culture and advancements for the best of humanity. European mistreated Jews but Muslims gave them the best for their protection and participation in Islamic civilization. Look, what is happening now between Palestine and Israel. Gideon Levy ("60 Killed In Gaza And The End Of Israeli Conscience", Haaretz and Information Clearing house: 5/21/2018), spells out the present reality for Israelis to think critically:On the night of the Palestinians' slaughter, Zion exulted an embassy and a Eurovision. It's difficult to think of a more atrocious moral eclipse....The truth is that Israel is well prepared to massacre hundreds and thousands, and to expel tens of thousands. Nothing will stop it. This is the end of conscience, the show of morality is over. The last few days' events have proved it decisively. The tracks have been laid, the infrastructure for the horror has been cast. Dozens of years of brainwashing, demonization and dehumanization have borne fruit. The alliance between the politicians and the media to suppress reality and deny it has succeeded. Israel is set to commit horrors. Nobody will stand in its way any longer. Not from within or from without....If 60 stray dogs were shot to death in one day by IDF soldiers, the whole country would raise an outcry. The dog slaughterers would be put on trial, the nation of Israel would have devoted prayers to the victims, a Yizkor service would be said for the dogs slaughtered by Israel....The Israeli brain has been washed irrevocably, the heart sealed for good. The life of a Palestinian is no longer deemed to be worth anything.Towards Thinking of Future-MakingWe live in one Planet Earth. What happens across the globe or in the remote jungles of Botswana and or in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan or the bloody streets of Kabul, Damascus and Baghdad, it is vital to global interests and cannot be ignored because European or American television networks do not portray it. According to the Divine revelations, the Earth keeps record of all the human activities. The Earth is a living entity, not dead.  There were many powerful and unchallenging empires and nations in history. What happened to their self-perpetuated glory and triumphs except being part of the archeological record? To all concerned, their artifacts and deadly remains do tell the real story. Most were destroyed by natural causes but the Earth remains in-tact, not by the legislative power of any States of the UN membership but certainly by the Will of God. It operates and maintains balanced life for all regardless of ethnicity, color, creed, religions and nationalism. Should we not care how we live, utilize and draw lifelong gains from the Earth?  We the humans urgently need rethinking to reflect on our plans and behaviors how do we relate to Earth? It is an indivisible comprehensive relationship. The answer should help us to balance our life. When could this historic change come into being? If we realize to be One Humanity living on One Planet Earth, its imagination could affect and balance our thoughts and behavior. We must respect equal human rights and dignity of all on Earth. Do the Super Powers (powerful nations) have a sense of indifference and biased toward the colored and economically less advanced nations?  In its 2014 Global Thinkers statistics, Foreign Policy ("A World Disrupted: The global Thinkers of 2014") pinpoints that "something big requires a team rather than an individual...." To enhance global peace and to undo the continuing bogus war on terrorism, there is an urgent need for teamwork by all concerned across the globe. The teamwork if undertaken with unbiased mind and  without pre-conceived notions could usher sustainable change and a new beginning between those who claim to be at peace and somewhat superior than the ordinary folks and those who are fighting reactionary wars of freedom against insanity and catastrophic devastation of the human habitats. Under 'Advocates', the Foreign Policy notes:"The global thinkers herald causes often wrongly considered inconsequential or verboten. They support forgotten victims of sexual violence, protect civilian targeted in internecine violence, count casualties in the fog of war, and demand legal protection for world's most vulnerable migrants. Often these men and women, scholars, activists and religious leader among them- do this work on their own peril and pay the price landing in court or in prison in some of the world's most repressive countries. For all of them, however, the risk is worth the possible rewards."

          Trudeau and our NATO allies brace for Trump’s arrival       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

OTTAWA—By now it’s a familiar pattern.

The U.S. president brays that his country is getting ripped off by its closest allies. And those allies — Canada included — try to figure out what to do about it.

That’s the predicament facing Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as he arrives in Brussels to meet with the other 28 members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The military alliance crucial to American leadership in the 20th century is now being raised by President Donald Trump as another example of anti-American unfairness on the world stage.

Weeks after he blasted Trudeau as “weak” and “dishonest” for protesting U.S. tariffs that have sparked a trade war amongst Western economic powers, Trump is now calling on Canada and other NATO partners to ramp up their own military spending in the alliance.

“The U.S. is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them. Not fair to the U.S. taxpayer,” Trump wrote on Twitter Tuesday morning, as he embarked across the Atlantic to attend the NATO summit.

“NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS. Very Unfair! (sic)” he wrote.

In response, Canada will hype its non-monetary contributions to NATO, including the decision this week to extend and expand its military presence in Latvia, where NATO countries have stationed soldiers in an effort to deter Russian aggression in Eastern Europe.

The hope is to deflect from the narrative that Canada is not contributing enough money to NATO’s shared defence. Canada committed four years ago to work towards a target of spending 2 per cent of GDP on defence by 2024, but is currently on pace to spend just 1.4 per cent.

In Latvia Tuesday, Trudeau voiced his “continued, unflinching support” for NATO, but ruled out jacking up Canada’s defence budget to meet the 2 per cent target that Trump is demanding.

“I think it’s an important metric, amongst many others, to gauge how countries are doing in terms of contributors to NATO,” Trudeau told reporters at the Adazi military base outside Riga.

“Ultimately, the more important metrics are always, ‘Are countries stepping up consistently with the capabilities that NATO needs? … Are we contributing the kinds of resources and demonstrating the kind of commitment to the alliance that always needs to be there?”

A source close to planning Canada’s position in Brussels said while Trump is an X factor in any international meeting, Trudeau still has to lay out his vision for the defence alliance.

“We have to ask ourselves the question, regardless of (Trump), NATO is a thing that exists and Canada is a member of it,” the source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, said. “So, whatever the narrative is going to be around the summit … we have to make decisions that we think are responsible and are in the national interest.

“I’m sure it will be part of the narrative for the next two days over whether or not these countries need to be spending more. And it’s something the United States has said before, under different presidents,” the source added.

Roland Paris, a University of Ottawa international affairs professor and Trudeau’s former foreign policy adviser, said Canada’s immediate goal with this week’s NATO summit will be damage control.

“(Trump’s) behaviour at the G7, combined with the messages he’s been sending in the last few days, suggest that he may take a very hard line with NATO allies,” Paris said.

The concern for Canada and European countries that make up the alliance — including Britain, Germany, France, and more — is that Trump’s bluster about spending commitments may presage an American pullback of its commitment to NATO, Paris said.

Those worries are amplified because of Trump’s upcoming tête-à-tête with Russian President Vladimir Putin, scheduled to take place in Finland next week, immediately after the NATO summit.

Trump told reporters as he left Washington on Tuesday that the meeting with Putin — leader of a country believed to have interfered in the 2016 presidential election and that is under international sanctions for its aggression in Eastern Europe — might be easier than the gathering with his country’s allies.

“Putin’s aggressive actions have given NATO a new lease on life,” Paris said. “But the question is whether the United States is going to stand with its allies.”

Irvin Studin, editor-in-chief of Global Brief magazine and senior fellow at the University of Toronto’s Munk School, said Trump’s stance on NATO should prompt Canada to explore its own strategy on the international stage.

He said Canadian foreign policy is too reliant on American assumptions, and that it would serve Canada to consider its evolving relationships with China and Russia as U.S. power diminishes in the global order.

“We actually don’t have our own theory of the world independent of NATO, independent of the U.S.,” Studin said. “That’s the more strategic question that we haven’t really explored as a country.”

But in the short term, Paris said Canada should respond to Trump’s call for more spending by pointing to its already-planned 73-per-cent increase in military expenditures over the next decade — which still wouldn’t hit the 2 per cent mark — and other contributions to NATO, such as the leadership in the alliance’s Baltic troop presence, and important roles that Canada has played in conflicts such as the war in Afghanistan and the 2011 intervention in Libya.

It remains to be seen whether Trudeau and other NATO leaders can placate the U.S. president this week. Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, cautioned Trump against pulling back from longstanding trans-Atlantic partnerships.

“Appreciate your allies,” he said. “After all, you don’t have that many.

And if the boats keep coming toward Europe despite the directives, then the coast guards should just sink them.

          How to Destroy a Nation from Within      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A comment left at the "The Age of Aquarius" post at UNZ.com sums up nicely the decades long plan to destroy Germany from within.
Heros says:

The key goal of the Kaufmann, Morgenthau and Houton plans was the genetic destruction of Germany and Germans. After starving millions of German men in the Rhine Meadows Death Camps, they enslaved millions more German soldiers and sent them around the planet for years, even decades. Conditions in French slave labor camps alone were far worse than any German labor camp, and we won’t go into the gulags. After stripping the country of its men, Eisenhower deliberately sent thousands of famously horny black soldiers into Berlin to try to get the starving local Maidels to miscegenate. This occurred in every German city in all occupation zones and when Paton objected he was eliminated. Later, Muslim Turks were brought in to fill the labor and paternity shortages deliberately created, and the dilution of the German gene pool continued full throttle.
AFN and Radio Liberty started broadcasting American Jazz music and American media across Germany while “de-nazification” (the cultural destruction of Germany) eliminated anyone not on board with the NWO. Young post war Germans were brought up in world bombarded with guilt and victors propaganda where the truth could not be uttered. They easily fell prey to Cultural Marxism, and by the end of the 1968 revolutions, toxic socialism and multiculturalism was firmly implanted across Germany and Europe.
The next wave from 1968 to about 2012 was the period of cutting threads of social fabric, destroying the family, and tearing down nationalist and racial pride, while the Jewish homeland was strengthened and made invulnerable.

About 2012, after Iraq, Egypt, Libya, then Syria, were invaded and devastated for Zionism and greater Israel, the long planned and long awaited invasion of Europe was unleashed. The EU had torn down all internal barriers with Schengen and its refugee settlement legislation meant that no EU country could resist the invasion. They thought, anyway. But “New Europe” had not been shrouded long enough in talmudic media mind control, so they have resisted the invasion. They sure better hope they win, because we know how jews treat those who defy them and become Amalek.
What is important here is to understand that this was a multi-generational plan against all the Christian peoples of Europe. Then and now, the US military was nothing more than the nails driven home by jewish hammers, used to crucify Christian culture on the cross of Jewish Power.
Want to see what this invasion looks like in the nation formerly known as Italy?

Maybe the MSM will cover this invasion?
Maybe those self-appointed Masters of the Universe will help staunch the invasion?

Oral Statement by United Nations Watch Agenda Item 9 General Debate UN Human Rights Council, 38th Session Delivered by Mr. Hillel Neuer, 3 July 2018 Transcript: Mr. President, one year ago in this chamber I asked the Arab states a simple question: “Where are your Jews?” My question was met with dead silence. Millions of people worldwide watched the video, witnessing for themselves the hypocrisy and double standards that characterizes much of what is said and done here. Today I have come to provide the answer to my question. Algeria, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Libya—your Jews fled as refugees after suffering persecution and deadly pogroms like the Farhud of Baghdad in 1941. Fortunately, countries like Israel, the U.S., Canada, France and others opened their doors, offering citizenship and equal rights. These Jewish refugees from Arab lands—whose suffering and losses the UN has never addressed—put their hardship behind them and built great lives for their families. Now let us contrast this with the situation of those descended from Arab refugees who fled the area of British Mandatory Palestine during the invasion of nascent Israel by Arab armies. What is holding them back? The answer is simple. Palestinians are the only population in the world not eligible for services by the UN refugee agency. Instead these descendants are governed by UNRWA, which holds generation after generation trapped in refugee camps, denied integration in the Arab countries they were born in and denied resettlement elsewhere. Some of UNRWA’s donors are waking up to the problem. As the Swiss …

CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK UNIVERSITY:

I no longer watch "Christian Apologetics" Debate Against 'Scientists' Who Venture Into 'Secular Social Affairs' - BECAUSE The Apologists MOSTLY LIKE TO HEAR THEMSELVES TALK And They USE THE BIBLE To JUSTIFY "GOD" ( Which Is A CIRCULAR REFERENCE To AN ATHEIST - And This Is Why They Think They Have 'Won The Argument')

MY BELIEF IN GOD Is Strengthened By LISTENING TO TWO Or More  SCIENTIFIC ATHEISTS TALK AMONG THEMSELVES And Then Use The "RELIGION OF EVOLUTION" (Which Uses BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF YEARS As Their "Fake Jesus"), absent the diversion of CHRISTIANITY/ISLAM they don't realize how IGNORANT they sound in believing that INANIMATE MATTER self-ordered itself due to PASSAGE OF TIME.

In listening to Y.I.T.T., who values the "BLACK [PROGRESSIVE POLITICALLY] ACTIVIST CHURCH as an EFFECTIVE MOBILIZER OF OPPRESSED BLACK AMERICANS - they fail to note that "THEIR GOD IS THE WHITE ENEMY" for this enemy causes them :
  • Psycho-Spiritual PAIN that needs healing in church
    • Mass Depression after a Republican Presidential Victory
    • SPEAKING IN TONGUES when 'Obama Jesus Won'
    • Refuse to bring up 'Oppression History' when 'The US Government destroyed Libya when Obama was in power'
  • Reference THIS WHITE MAN in every one of their CHURCH SERMONS
  • Walk past ALL OF THE DEAD BLACK BODIES stacked up in their OWN BLACK COMMUNITIES - in order to GO DOWNTOWN to protest the WHITE POLICE killing one Black
  • Go to the PRISON to claimed UNJUST MASS INCARCERATION - while being TOO CORRUPT to see that the YOUNG BLACK MALES WHO ARE LOCKED UP are victims of having their RITES OF PASSAGE PROGRAM molested by THE FAKE RELIGION OF BLACK POLITICS 

THE FAKE RELIGION OF BLACK POLITICS see no need to PROVE its EFFICACY.
The fact that IT IS POPULAR with "American Containerized Blacks",   
Has not triggered any of them to ASK FOR THEIR MONEY BACK DUE TO DISSATISFACTION,
None of the SCIENTISTS who attack mainline 'Christianity / Islam' are heard attacking 'The Fake Religion Of Black Politics' as it harvests BLACK COMMUNITY VALUABLES 
and that ALL BLACKS who are NOT ALIGNED WITH THIS THEOLOGY are SLANDERED.....

THIS IS SUFFICIENT PROOF OF EFFECTIVENESS

  • IS A CHURCH WITH AN "SECULAR IDOL WORSHIPING HUMAN GOD" (ENEMY) THAT MOLESTS A PEOPLE'S 'SPIRIT OF DISCERNMENT' 
    • AS SECULAR SCIENTISTS WHO TYPICALLY ATTACK "RELIGION AS FAKE" STAY SILENT BECAUSE THEY LOVE TO SEE "IGNORANT CONGREGATIONS" DOING WHAT IS PLEASING TO THEM (THE SECULAR ATHEISTS)

LONDON: Fatima Nasser’s new business had barely got off the ground when she was accused of being a foreign spy for giving women employment opportunities in Libya, her war-torn home country.
The accusation was a measure of the opposition working women face in the conservative Muslim country, which has been in turmoil since a NATO-backed revolt toppled long-time leader Muammar Qaddafi in 2011.

Fatima Nasser's new business had barely got off the ground when she was accused of being a foreign spy for giving women employment opportunities in Libya, her war-torn home country. The accusation was a measure of the opposition working women face in the conservative Muslim country, which has been in turmoil since a NATO-backed revolt toppled long-time leader Moammar Gadhafi in 2011. Just one in four Libyan women is employed, according to World Bank data - a situation Nasser, 21, hopes to change with a new food delivery app that allows them to earn money from their own kitchens. "I'm just doing something to help women that I know deserve better. They need opportunities, just like males," Yasser told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. The app, Yummy, connects women who cook at home with customers wanting to order food, in much the same way as Uber connects private drivers with would-be passengers. It acts as a conduit, offering anonymity options for the cooks, and allows women to take food orders from men without having to speak to them. "You have a society that has been closed for 100 years, you can't just open a communication gate between two genders that were not supposed to talk to each other unless they were married to do business," said Nasser. She now has 300 cooks ready to start work, having tested the service successfully with 20 in the southern Libyan city of Sabha - among them 26-year-old Ekhlas Ekrim. Ekrim has been cooking and selling her food on Yummy for four months in Sabha, where a lack of security and ongoing fighting between rival armed groups have prevented her from going out to work to earn much-needed cash. "Here they won't accept that women work. Here your father or brother is responsible to give you money and everything that you need as a woman in the house," said Ekrim, who lives with her parents, two brothers and two sisters, via WhatsApp. "Working with Yummy is wonderful and has made things a lot easier. The work itself is not hard, society is." Hope for Change Oil-rich Libya was once one of the wealthiest countries in the Middle East, but its economy has been crippled by conflict and political division. Security in many parts of the country is poor and the protracted conflict has meant more women having to earn a living as men go off to fight, says development organization MEDA, which teaches business skills to women in Libya. "Culturally it's maybe not as appropriate for women to work outside the house. An app like that could circumnavigate some of those issues," said MEDA director Adam Bramm. Last year Yummy was one of three winners of the nationwide Enjazi competition, which aims to encourage entrepreneurship to help diversify Libya's oil-dependent economy. Nasser won business training and advice from the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Pan Arab Region and Tatweer Research, which support entrepreneurship in the region. The prize included a trip to Britain to meet and learn from successful entrepreneurs. "If a woman started a start-up (in Libya) she would not have the same encouragement and support that her brother had," she said. "But hopefully this will change. People are starting to believe in females more and more now."
          Washington's 'revolutionaries' in Iran will fail - but not without inflicting damage first      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The US backed Iranian opposition are neither "revolutionary," nor even "in" Iran. Yet they have been designated as Washington's proxies of choice, and an alternative government they seek to place into power in Tehran. As the US-led proxy war in Syria reaches a relative stalemate and with time on Damascus and its allies' side, Washington's wider agenda of using the conflict as a stepping stone toward regime change in Iran is leading into a much larger conflict. Geopolitical expert F. William Engdahl has pointed out the means through which Western oil corporations have orchestrated global schemes to raise oil prices to make American shale oil production profitable. At the same time, the US has for years now used sanctions against Iran, political subversion in Venezuela, war in Libya, and proxy war in Ukraine to prevent Tehran, Caracas, Libya's opposition, and Moscow from benefiting long-term from higher oil prices. For Iran, undermining its oil revenues and reintroducing sanctions and secondary sanctions on nations that refuse to recognize America's withdrawal from the so-called Iran Nuclear Deal, is done in tandem with direct, covert subversion inside Iran itself. Together, these efforts seek to cripple Iran as a functional nation state, as well as reduce its influence through the Middle Eastern and Central Asian regions.

10 years ago - The Times Friday, July 11, 2008 Three dead, three babies among 180 immigrants Three dead women, one of them pregnant, three babies and another two children were among the 180 African migrants brought to Malta yesterday, the largest number of arrivals in a single day this year. “The Armed Forces could hardly cope with the mayhem out there,” a soldier told The Times. Multiple calls reporting boats in distress reached the army headquarters in Luqa. A group of 85 was first found by an Italian naval craft, the Fenice, during a Frontex patrol in the Libyan search and rescue region. Army sources said there were repeated attempts to contact the Libyan authorities but the matter kept being postponed and it was eventually decided that they should be brought to Malta. The patrol craft arrived off Grand Harbour late yesterday morning and the migrants were shuttled to Malta in groups of 10. A second patrol boat arrived later in the afternoon with another 55 migrants and the cadavers of the three women. About 25 of the migrants were rescued by a trawler on Wednesday night. Another AFM craft brought in another 72 migrants who were spotted in a sinking dinghy by the same Italian...

Asian stocks retreated and perceived safe havens such as the yen and U.S. Treasuries rose on Wednesday after the United States said it would impose tariffs on an extra 200 billion worth of Chinese imports, sharply escalating the trade war between the worlds two biggest economies.Washington decided to impose the extra tariffs after efforts to negotiate a solution to the dispute failed to reach an agreement, senior administration officials said on Tuesday.The United States had just imposed tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods on Friday, drawing immediate retaliatory duties from Beijing on U.S. imports in the first shots of a heated trade war. U.S. President Donald Trump had warned then that his country may ultimately impose tariffs on more than $500 billion worth of Chinese imports.MSCIs broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 0.4 percent. The index had gained for the past two sessions, having enjoyed a lull from the trade war fears that lashed global markets last week.South Koreas KOSPI lost 1 percent and Japans Nikkei fell 1.2 percent.SandP 500 and Dow futures were down 0.8 percent and 0.95 percent, respectively, pointing to a lower open for Wall Street later in the day.The markets still remain sensitive to the trade-related theme, which is something investors have to take into account for the long term, said Yoshinori Shigemi, global market strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management in Tokyo.At the same time, the trade dispute can easily be blamed for a variety of ills. But it could mask over factors that could also weigh on equities in the longer run, such as tighter monetary policies led by the United States.The yen, often sought in times of political tensions and market turmoil, gained against a number of peers.The dollar was down 0.1 percent at 110.88 yen, pulled back from a near two-month peak of 111.355.The euro fell 0.25 percent to 130.11 yen and the Australian dollar lost 0.7 percent to 82.24 yen.The Aussie, considered a liquid proxy for China-related trades, fell 0.5 percent against the dollar to $0.7422.The 10-year Treasury note yield fell roughly 4 basis points to 2.8345 percent, pulling back from the previous days peak of 2.875 percent.Brent crude futures lost 0.57 percent to $78.41 a barrel.

U.S. President Donald Trump had warned then that his country may ultimately impose tariffs on more than $500 billion worth of Chinese imports - roughly the total amount of U.S. imports from China last year.With no early end appearing to be in sight for the escalating tit-for-tat world trade frictions and rising trade protectionism, global trade wars have become one of the key downside risks to world growth and trade in the second half of 2018 and for 2019, wrote Rajiv Biswas, Asia Pacific chief economist at IHS Markit.MSCIs broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 1.1 percent.

Italy continues to take a hard line when it comes to the flood of migrants seeking to flee from Africa, primarily from Libya, and make their way to Europe. This is particularly true of the various ships operating in the waters off of Italy who have been dumping their human cargo at Italian ports for the last few years. We recently learned that the Italians have been investigating some of these ships to find if they are even operating in those waters legally. One ship, in particular, appeared to have lied about their country of origin and the flag they were flying.

This week there was yet another brouhaha involving a ship picking up migrants who were stranded at sea. The complicating factor was that this was one if Italy’s own vessels. (Associated Press)

Italy’s transport minister said Tuesday an investigation is underway into the latest rescue of migrants off Libya, in which an Italian ship tending to an oil rig picked up some 60 would-be refugees.

Minister Danilo Toninelli vowed to “punish the troublemakers” and praised the Italian coast guard for taking on the migrants from the tug Vos Thalassa. Toninelli tweeted Tuesday that the migrants were “putting at risk the lives of the crew” of the Thalassa.

Citing interior ministry officials, news agency ANSA said the Thalassa intervened in the rescue in Libya’s search and rescue zone late Monday, even though the Libyan coast guard had been alerted to the distress call. Under Italy’s new hard-line, anti-migrant interior minister Matteo Salvini, Italy is seeking to have Libya’s coast guard rescue migrants and take them back, rather than letting them come to Italy.

It does seem as if Toninelli is being overly critical here. The tugboat that took in the migrants was not out on some sort of rescue mission. They were servicing an offshore oil rig and received a distress call. Further, after the safety of the migrants had been established, they turned them over to the Coast Guard, presumably for an eventual return trip to Libya.

Italy’s solution to this standoff may appear harsh, but it’s also relatively simple. They would like Libya to take the migrants who are caught (or rescued) attempting to cross the sea and keep them in refugee facilities there. It sounds as if a number of EU members are willing to kick in some funding to help establish and maintain such facilities. Is it really that outrageous of an idea?

This week, Italy’s Transport Minister is heading to a meeting of EU interior ministers in Austria. As we’ve covered here previously, Austria currently holds the revolving EU presidency and is attempting to put that power to good use. Austria is also one of the nations at the center of the “Axis of the Willing” who are attempting to harden Europe’s external borders and stem the tide of migrants seeking to permanently settle there.

Whether you agree with their approach or not, it seems obvious that Italy should have a seat at the table in these discussions. Given their proximity to Libya and Tunisia, both Italy and Malta are obvious targets for both migrants and human traffickers. That resulted in Italy taking in well over a half million migrants in just the past four years. In 2018, however, the tide started to turn as protests in Italy began to have an effect. Thus far this year, only 17,000 migrants have been taken in. That’s barely one fifth the number arriving by July of last year.

The EU has been facing a major schism over their migrant policy for quite a while now and they need to get this under control. Union leaders in Brussels need to understand that they have neither the authority or the power to keep forcing their will on all of their member nations in this matter. If they want to hold the union together, some compromises are clearly in order.

Large fire caused by kite sent from Gaza rages outside Israeli kibbutz-Nine firefighting teams, 4 planes said participating in efforts to douse flames; second fire reported in area-By TOI staff-JUL 9,18

Two fires blazed near Israeli communities near the Gaza Strip Saturday afternoon, caused by incendiary kites flown into Israel from the territory.A large fire was raging near Kibbutz Or Haner, Channel 10 news reported. Nine firefighting teams were at the scene, with the support of four firefighting aircraft.A second fire was reported near Kibbutz Nir Am.Officials said there was no current danger to the communities themselves.Recent months have seen an uptick in violence at the Gaza border, with weekly violent Palestinian protests, ongoing rocket attacks, and the new phenomenon of incendiary kites and balloons flown over the border, sometimes at a rate of several dozen each day.The incendiary devices have sparked near-daily fires that have burned thousands of acres of farmland, parks, and forests. Some have been found connected to explosive devices.On Friday police launched a campaign urging children to stay away from any unknown kites, balloons, or drones they may find on the ground this summer.On Friday thousands of Israelis took part in a rally near Gaza calling for the return of the bodies of IDF soldiers held by Hamas.Some 4,000 people took part in the Israeli event, waving Israeli flags and flying blue kites in a peaceful counter to the flaming airborne devices launched at Israel in recent months from Gaza.Separately Friday, a few thousand Palestinians participated in the weekly “March of Return” protests on the Gaza border. One was reported killed when a device he was holding exploded.

Abbas adviser compares Israeli security at Temple Mount to Nazism, Inquisition-Mahmoud Habbash laments restrictions on Muslim access to Al-Aqsa Mosque: 'Are they trying to do to others what was done to them?'-By TOI staff-JUL 9,18

A religious affairs adviser to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas compared Israel’s security measures for Muslims at the Temple Mount compound to those employed against Jews during the Spanish Inquisition and the Holocaust.In remarks last week on Palestine TV, Mahmoud Habbash lamented restrictions on access to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which sits on the holy site known in Arabic as Haram al-Sharif.“There are roadblocks, restrictions, closure of the gates, road closures, and age restrictions… People who are under 40 years of age are not allowed to pray,” Habbash said, according to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute.“Dear God! What is this? What historical age are we living in?” said Habbash, also the PA’s supreme Sharia judge. “In the days of the Inquisition? Are they trying to do to others what was done to them in the ghettos, in the Inquisition courts, or in the Nazi courts? Is this or is this not the Inquisition?”“It is an Israeli Zionist Inquisition, which is trying to violate one’s human dignity, and the dignity of religious belief and of human faith in God,” the PA official concluded.The Temple Mount houses the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa mosque, and is considered Islam’s third holiest site. It is the holiest place in Judaism, revered by Jews as the location of the Jewish Temples.Under the present arrangement instituted by Israel after it captured Jerusalem’s Old City in 1967, the site remains under Jordan’s religious custodianship. Jews are allowed to visit the compound under the existing arrangements but are barred from religious worship or prayer.Israel does not restrict access for Muslims in Israel, including East Jerusalem, to the site. It has sometimes closed the area to men under 40 at times of high security alert, but has not done so recently. It does routinely maintain restrictions on West Bank Palestinians entering the country, amid its overall security procedures.Israel and Jordan signed a peace accord in 1994, but relations have long been cold.Last July the holy site became the focus of a major crisis between Israeli authorities, Palestinians, and Jordan over security measures taken at the entrances to the compound. Metal detectors and cameras were installed following a deadly attack in which three Arab Israelis emerged from the site and shot dead two Israeli police officers using weapons that had been smuggled onto the Temple Mount. The upgraded security measures were all ultimately removed.Early last year Habbash warned that the Trump administration’s plans — since realized — to move the US embassy to Jerusalem were “a declaration of war on all Muslims.”

Duterte vows to resign if anybody can prove God exists in a selfie-Days after calling God 'stupid,' controversial Philippine president implores heavily Catholic nation to produce photographic evidence of the divine-By AP-JUL 9,18-TOI

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine president, who recently sparked outrage for calling God stupid, has courted new controversy in his largely Roman Catholic country by saying he will resign if anybody can prove that God exists.President Rodrigo Duterte, who has had a thorny relationship with the church, questioned anew in a speech late Friday some of the basic tenets of the Catholic faith, including the concept of original sin, which he said taints even innocent infants and can only be removed through baptism in a church for a fee.“Where is the logic of God there?” Duterte asked in a speech at the opening of a science and technology event in southern Davao city.The 73-year-old leader said that if there’s “one single witness” who can prove, perhaps with a picture or a selfie that a human was “able to talk [with] and to see God,” he will immediately resign.Duterte, however, suggested that there must be a God or a supreme being that prevents billions of stars and celestial bodies from colliding in a frequency that could have long threatened the human race.Last week, he was slammed, including by some of his political allies, for calling God “stupid” in another speech, with one Catholic bishop calling him a “psychopath.”Duterte lamented in that speech that Adam and Eve’s sin in Christian theology resulted in all the faithful falling from divine grace.“Who is this stupid God? This son of a bitch is then really stupid,” he said last week. “You were not involved but now you’re stained with an original sin … What kind of a religion is that? That’s what I can’t accept, very stupid proposition.”Opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV shot back at Duterte by describing him as “one evil man” and his remarks as “very much consistent with the deceitfulness, heartlessness, and ruthlessness of his policies.Presidential spokesman Harry Roque has defended his remarks, saying Duterte has the right to express his opinion on religion and cited the president’s previous disclosure that he was once sexually abused by a priest.Duterte on Friday recalled that experience, when he said he and other students were fondled by a foreign Jesuit priest, who has since died.Amid the criticisms, officials have arranged a meeting between Duterte and the head of the largest association of Catholic bishops on Monday. Filipino bishops opened an annual conference in Manila Saturday and were expected to address Duterte’s tirades when they conclude their meeting on Monday.Some Catholic bishops have been critical of Duterte’s brutal crackdown against illegal drugs, which have left thousands of suspects dead in reported clashes with the police, along with his vulgar and expletive-laden speeches. He once called Pope Francis a “son of a bitch” for sparking a monstrous traffic jam during a 2015 visit in Manila that trapped Duterte for hours.

Fire likely cause of 2016 EgyptAir crash, French investigators say-Information acquired from flight recorders suggests blaze broke out and spread rapidly, 'causing the loss of control of the aircraft'; officials suspect phone or tablet to blame-By AFP-TOI-JUL 9,18

French investigators said Friday a cockpit fire likely caused the 2016 EgyptAir MS804 crash that claimed the lives of 66 passengers and crew, contradicting Egyptian authorities who said explosives traces were found on the victims’ remains.France’s civil aviation accident bureau, known by its French acronym BEA, said that information gleaned from the flight recorders suggested that “a fire broke out in the cockpit while the plane was at cruising altitude and the fire spread rapidly, causing the loss of control of the aircraft.”The Airbus A320 was flying from Paris to Cairo on May 19, 2016 when it crashed into the southeastern Mediterranean, killing 66 people, including 40 Egyptians and 15 French citizens.French investigators had always leaned towards a mechanical fault as the cause of the crash, saying they suspected that a mobile phone or tablet had caught fire.An official Egyptian investigation suggested the plane had been bombed, claiming traces of explosives had been found on the victims’ remains. But a source close to the French investigation previously said no such traces were found by the team.The BEA said the crew could be heard discussing a fire on the cockpit voice recorder and that the plane’s automatic ACARS messaging system had flagged up smoke on board.It said it was waiting for Egypt to publish its final report into the crash to understand how the two countries arrived at a different conclusion.Times of Israel staff contributed to this report.

Pope denounces ‘complicit silence’ on Mideast attacks against Christians-Francis and Orthodox patriarchs pray for peace in region 'covered by dark clouds of war, violence and destruction'-By Trisha Thomas and Nicole Winfield-TOI-JUL 9,18

BARI, Italy (AP) — Pope Francis denounced the “complicit silence” that has allowed violence to consume the Middle East and drive tens of thousands of Christians from their homes, during a remarkable gathering Saturday of Orthodox patriarchs and Catholic leaders united in praying for peace in the region.Francis hosted the daylong ecumenical service in the symbolically rich Adriatic port city of Bari, considered a bridge between East and West and home to the relics of St. Nicholas, an important saint in the Orthodox world.Francis greeted the patriarchs outside the Basilica of St. Nicholas and together they descended to the crypt to pray before the relics and light a flame for peace symbolizing the unity of Christians.For years, the Vatican has voiced concern about the plight of Christians driven from Mideast communities that date to the time of Christ. Just last week, Francis decried intensified attacks in southern Syria that killed scores of people and forced tens of thousands to flee.In his opening prayer, Francis said the Middle East represented the source of Christianity, where ancient Christian rites and heritage are preserved and where “our very souls are rooted.”And yet, in recent years the region has been “covered by dark clouds of war, violence and destruction, instances of occupation and varieties of fundamentalism, forced migration and neglect,” he said.“All this has taken place amid the complicit silence of many,” he lamented. “The Middle East has become a land of people who leave their own lands behind.”In a prayer service punctuated by haunting Arabic chant and Catholic hymn, Francis said the Orthodox and Catholic leaders wanted to give voice to those who have none.“Indifference kills, and we desire to lift up our voices in opposition to this murderous indifference,” he said. “For the Middle East today is weeping, suffering and silent as others trample upon those lands in search of power or riches.”Among the patriarchs on hand was the spiritual leader of the world’s Orthodox Christians, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, as well as patriarchs from ancient churches of Alexandria, Antioch and Jerusalem. Notably absent from the gathering was Patriarch Kirill, head of the Russian Orthodox Church, which has been a strong supporter of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s military intervention in Syria. Kirill sent his deputy, Metropolitan Hilarion.

Spain emerges as EU's new weak link for Africa migration-[Reuters]-By Sonya Dowsett, Ahmed Eljechtimi and Gabriela Baczynska-YAHOONEWS-July 9, 2018

TARIFA, Spain/RABAT/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Spain has become the new main entry point for asylum-seekers fleeing Africa, an influx that European Union officials fear could exacerbate political tensions across the region over migration.Around 19,000 asylum-seekers arrived in Spain in the first five months of this year, almost as many as arrived there in all of 2017, eclipsing for the first time the numbers flowing through north Africa to Italy.The surge has intensified in recent weeks as Italy's new government shut its ports to most asylum-seekers, rescue officials say.With the EU struggling to contain dissent over migration policy, some officials in Brussels say they worry that Spain could become a new flash-point, even as overall numbers of arrivals into Europe from Africa are in sharp decline."We must not let it blow up," an EU diplomat said.He said the Morocco-Spain route had been kept under control for years. "It's not dramatic for now, but we are keeping an eye on this one."Spain's new socialist prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, has been welcoming, and accepted two boat-loads of asylum-seekers denied port entry by Italy even as the number of boats from Morocco also rose.The asylum-seekers are arriving in mostly inflatable boats each week, often without enough fuel for the crossing, straining Spain's coastguard. Madrid is training more lifeguards to deal with the rising numbers, coastguard union officials say.People-smugglers in Morocco use a rights activist to contact the coastguard, advising it when boats set off for Spain, said coastguard official Oriol Estrada."The people traffickers know that the lifeguards are going to come for them," said Estrada, whose vessel has rescued around 1,200 people so far this year, more than 80 percent of its total for 2017."They call to say that a certain boat has left such-and-such a coast at a certain time with however many people. They even give the names of those aboard."A similar situation developed off Libya before Rome's recent crackdown, prompting Italy's ruling League party to accuse rescue ships of running a "taxi service".-'I WANT TO GO TO EUROPE'-Rescue officials working in the Strait of Gibraltar say more Asian migrants from countries like Pakistan and Sri Lanka are also crossing, another sign that smuggling networks are focusing more of their efforts on Spain.Morocco is a destination in itself for those fleeing poverty and violence in sub-Saharan Africa, but it has become more of a stepping stone as people determined to reach Europe realize the Libya-Italy route may be worse than futile, refugees say."In Libya I saw migrants being fired at with live ammunition. A friend of mine was killed in front of my eyes by a Libyan teenager," said Guinea migrant Oumar Dialo, who tried and failed to reach Europe via Libya before ending up in Morocco."I would never recommend Libya even to my enemy."Speaking in Rabat, Dialo said he had tried to reach Spain by crossing a fence on the border of Morocco and Spain's north African enclave of Ceuta, but fell and broke his leg. He said he would try to reach Spain again when the time was right, to pursue his dream of becoming a professional roller-skater."I want to go to Europe because I want to help my family and become a professional roller," he said.Morocco said it was boosting efforts to counter illegal immigration this summer, the busiest time for sea crossings."Morocco is committed to cooperating with its partners in the fight against illegal migration," government spokesperson Mustapha El Khalfi said.EU officials in Brussels are struggling to agree on a joint response to migration to calm tensions in Italy and Germany. Leaders signaled their concerns over Spain last week when they reached a new accord on the issue, pledging to support Madrid and Morocco to stem the tide.A Spanish government spokesman told Reuters the arrivals trend started more than a year ago and was not a result of any one factor. He added Spain is pushing for policy in Europe to be harmonized, however.There are early signs that Sanchez might feel political pressure to toughen his approach if the influx continues to pick up speed.Fernando Maura, foreign policy spokesman for the center-right opposition Ciudadanos party, said the prime minister's current approach risked creating a "pull factor"."When you send out a signal of this kind, it could well be received by those who want to come to Europe," he said.(This story was corrected to delete reference to record year in paragraph two.)(Additional reporting by Steve Scherer in ROME; Editing by Mark Bendeich and Sonya Hepinstall)

38 dead, nearly 50 reported missing as heavy rain hits Japan-People flee to rooftops and balconies, waving furiously at hovering rescue helicopters-By YURI KAGEYAMA-TOI-JUL 9,18

TOKYO (AP) — Torrents of rainfall and flooding battered a widespread area in southwestern Japan on Saturday, with local media casualty reports climbing quickly. Public broadcaster NHK said 38 people were dead, four were injured seriously, and 47 were missing.Television footage showed a residential area in Okayama prefecture seeped in brown water spreading like a huge lake. Some people fled to rooftops and balconies and waved furiously at hovering rescue helicopters.Okayama prefecture said a man caught in a landslide died, and six others were missing. Evacuation orders had been issued to more than 360,000 people, the prefecture said in a statement.Throughout the affected areas, parked cars sat in pools of water. NHK TV said water had reached as high as 5 meters (16 feet) in the worst-hit areas.Kyodo news service, which put the death tally at 34 people, said one death was in a landslide in Hiroshima, which had set off a fire, while the body of a child was found in another area. NHK said a woman died in her home in Hiroshima when it got buried in a mudslide.Assessing overall casualties was a challenge because of the widespread damage. NHK repeatedly urged those awaiting rescue to not lose hope.In Ehime prefecture, a woman was found dead on the second floor of a home hit by a landslide, Kyodo said. Also in Ehime, two elementary-school girls and their mother, who got sucked into a mudslide, were rescued but their hearts weren’t beating, it said.Kyoto prefecture said it was working to control flooding at several dams and identified one fatality as a 52-year-old woman.Military water trucks were rushing to areas where water systems were no longer working, Okayama prefecture said. Troops in camouflage outfits helped people and pets reach dry land on small military boats.Evacuation orders or advisories were sent for 4.72 million people, and 48,000 members of the Self-Defense Forces, police, and firefighters were mobilized for search missions, according to Kyodo.

PHUKET, Thailand (AFP) — A scene of horror in the hull of a sunken boat: mothers still holding babies, their bodies suspended in water as the lower lounge of the Phoenix became a tomb in one of Thailand’s worst ever sea disasters.At least 41 people died — all Chinese tourists — when the Phoenix went down in rough seas on Thursday.Fifteen people are still missing but two days later flickers of hope for miracle survivals are all but extinguished.While some 48 passengers and crew managed to flee the sinking vessel by jumping into the sea or mounting life rafts, many were trapped in the main lounge as the pleasure boat plummeted 40 meters into the Andaman Sea.“It’s difficult… it’s traumatic… as you can imagine when you find dead bodies, children, kids, in the arms of the mother in the wreck,” said Philippe Entremont, the manager of a Phuket dive shop who was helping coordinate the underwater search.“But now the best thing to do for us, our job is to find the bodies and bring them back to the families,” the Frenchman added.Dozens of rescuers — including volunteers and recreational divers — have scoured the waters for two days, in an area known for its reefs.Most of Thailand’s diving experts have been diverted to the north to a rescue operation at a flooded cave where 12 schoolboys have been trapped for two weeks.That left volunteers in Phuket leading the grim task of trying to retrieve bodies from the sunken vessel.Entremont said those going down are specially trained to dive at depth — the boat has sunk to about 47 meters.South African Dominic Robnik, who has been involved in the search on both days, called the scenes “very, very sad.”“There was a lot of debris, shoes, glass, and even personal belongings, so we had to navigate through all that,” he said.Divers were positioned every five meters so recovered bodies were slowly passed up to the surface, Robnik said, adding that he had helped move at least six bodies.One body has been particularly hard to retrieve after it was trapped by the sunken boat, the divers said, adding that they were ready to bring in specialized equipment.But late Saturday afternoon, the underwater search was stopped with the Thai navy taking over the operation.The bodies would “surface naturally” according to Rear Admiral Charoenphone Khumrasee.It is the grim reality of boat disasters, said Entremont.“Maybe in a few days’ time we’ll find them on a beach somewhere drifting away.”

North Korea says talks with Pompeo were ‘regrettable’-Pyongyang accuses Washington of trying to unilaterally pressure it into abandoning its nukes even as the US describes the meetings as 'productive'-By ANDREW HARNIK and Matthew Lee-TOI-JUL 9,18

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea said Saturday that high-level talks with a US delegation led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were “regrettable” and accused Washington of trying to unilaterally pressure the country into abandoning its nukes.The North’s statement came hours after Pompeo wrapped up two days of talks with senior North Korean officials without meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but with commitments for new discussions on denuclearization and the repatriation of the remains of American soldiers killed during the Korean War.Before departing Pyongyang, Pompeo told reporters that his conversations with senior North Korean official Kim Yong Chol had been “productive,” conducted “in good faith,” and that “a great deal of progress” had been made in some areas. He stressed that “there’s still more work to be done” in other areas, much of which would be done by working groups that the two sides have set up to deal with specific issues.The North provided a much harsher assessment of the talks, saying that the United States betrayed the spirit of last month’s summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim by making “one-sided and robber-like” demands on “CVID,” or the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of North Korea.It said the outcome of the follow-up talks was “very concerning” because it has led to a “dangerous phase that might rattle our willingness for denuclearization that had been firm.”“We had expected that the US side would offer constructive measures that would help build trust based on the spirit of the leaders’ summit … we were also thinking about providing reciprocal measures,” an unnamed spokesman of Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.“However, the attitude and stance the United States showed in the first high-level meeting [between the countries] was no doubt regrettable,” the spokesman said.Pompeo said that a Pentagon team would be meeting with North Korean officials on or about July 12 at the border between North and South Korea to discuss the repatriation of remains and that working level talks would be held soon on the destruction of North Korea’s missile engine testing facility.In the days following his historic June 12 summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore, President Donald Trump had announced that the return of the remains and the destruction of the missile facility had been completed or were in progress.Pompeo, however, said that more talks were needed on both.“We now have a meeting set up for July 12 — it could move by one day or two — where there will be discussions between the folks responsible for the repatriation of remains. [It] will take place at the border and that process will begin to develop over the days that follow,” he said as he boarded his plane for Tokyo.On the destruction of the missile engine plant, Pompeo said, “We talked about what the modalities would look like for the destruction of that facility as well, and some progress there as well, and then we have laid out a path for further negotiation at the working level so the two teams can get together and continue these discussions.”Earlier, Pompeo and Kim Yong Chol both said they needed clarity on the parameters of an agreement to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula that Trump and Kim Jong Un agreed to in Singapore. The trip was Pompeo’s third to Pyongyang since April and his first since the summit.Unlike his previous visits, which have been one-day affairs during which he has met with Kim Jong Un, Pompeo spent the night at a government guesthouse in Pyongyang and did not see the North Korean leader, although US officials had suggested such a meeting was expected. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said no meeting with Kim Jong Un had been planned.As they began their talks on Saturday, Kim Yong Chol alluded to the fact that Pompeo and his delegation had stayed overnight in Pyongyang.“We did have very serious discussions on very important matters yesterday,” Kim said. “So, thinking about those discussions you might have not slept well last night.”Pompeo, who spoke with Trump, national security adviser John Bolton, and White House chief of staff John Kelly by secure phone before starting Saturday’s session, replied that he “slept just fine.” He added that the Trump administration was committed to reaching a deal under which North Korea would denuclearize and realize economic benefits in return.Kim later said that “there are things that I have to clarify” to which Pompeo responded that “there are things that I have to clarify as well.”There was no immediate explanation of what needed to be clarified, but the two sides have been struggling to specify what exactly “denuclearization” would entail and how it could be verified to the satisfaction of the United States.Pompeo and Kim met for nearly three hours Friday and then had dinner amid growing skepticism over how serious Kim Jong Un is about giving up his nuclear arsenal and translating the upbeat rhetoric following his summit with Trump into concrete action.On his flight to Pyongyang, Pompeo said both sides made commitments at the Singapore summit on the complete denuclearization of North Korea and on what a transformed relationship between their two countries might look like.One hoped-for breakthrough on this trip would have been the return of the remains of US troops killed during the 1950-53 Korean War. North Korea committed at last month’s summit to the “immediate repatriation” of remains already identified, but that hasn’t happened yet.

Thousands head home in south Syria after ceasefire deal, monitor says-Calm reported in Daraa region Saturday as sides finalize truce; regime troops celebrate recapture of border crossing with Jordan-By Agencies-TOI-JUL 9,18

Thousands of displaced Syrians were heading home Saturday after rebels and the government reached a ceasefire deal in the south following more than two weeks of deadly bombardment, a monitor said.Under the agreement announced Friday after talks between rebels and regime ally Moscow, opposition fighters will hand over territory and heavy weapons in Daraa province near the Jordanian border.The Russia-backed regime offensive has displaced around 320,000 people since June 19, the United Nations says, including tens of thousands who fled south to the sealed border with Jordan.Calm reigned over the region on Saturday as the two sides finalized the ceasefire deal, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.“People have started to return to their homes since yesterday, taking advantage of the calm,” Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said.“More than 20,000 people have set off for home so far, heading to areas for which an accord has been reached in the southeastern Daraa countryside,” he said.But others “are scared to return to regime-controlled areas, fearing their children will be arrested,” Abdel Rahman said.The accord follows a string of similar deals with rebels for other areas of Syria, which have seen the regime retake more than 60 percent of the country, according to the Observatory.A government takeover of Daraa would be a symbolic victory for President Bashar Assad as the province was the cradle of the uprising against him seven years ago that led to civil war.More than 150 civilians have been killed in the regime bombing campaign on Daraa since June 19, the Observatory says.Under Friday’s deal, rebels are expected to hand over their heavy weapons, while those who reject the agreement will be bused with their families to the rebel-held northwestern province of Idlib, state media has said.Government forces will also take over “all observation posts along the Syrian-Jordanian border,” it said Friday, hours after the regime regained control of the vital Nassib border crossing with Jordan.Syrian soldiers celebrated the recapture of the main border crossing with Jordan Saturday, raising portraits of Assad and tearing down rebel flags.Troops captured the Naseeb border crossing a day earlier. State-run Ikhbariya TV showed troops at the crossing, some flashing victory signs and pumping fists in the air as they shouted pro-Assad slogans. A soldier could be seen hoisting the Syrian flag on top of a watchtower. Another tore down the rebel flag from a building.One officer told the TV outlet that troops have taken up positions along the border with Jordan and are removing illegal crossing points.“We have ended their existence,” he said of the rebels. “They have no future anymore, God willing.”State-run news agency SANA said the army deployed at the crossing after combing and clearing it of the remnants of “terrorist groups.” It said Syrian army units have also established control over the town of Nuaima in the past 24 hours.The rebels seized control of the crossing in 2015, severing a lifeline for Syrian exports and disrupting a trade route between Syria and Jordan, Lebanon and the oil-rich Gulf countries.The rebels in southern Syria once received significant backing and support from the US that has receded and all but dried up over the past few years. Although the US government negotiated a deescalation agreement for southern Syria last year, it has remained silent as Assad’s forces marched onto Daraa in the past two weeks.The government’s offensive near the Israeli border began on June 19, and is now expected to turn more forcefully toward retaking Quneitra, potentially setting up a clash between Israel and Hezbollah and Iran unless they agree to stay away from the area as Israel demands.

Israeli spy firm targeted NGOs tied to Soros before Hungary election — report-Agents for secretive intel company obtained recordings later used by PM Viktor Orban to claim Jewish billionaire is trying to take control of the country, POLITICO reports-By TOI staff-JUL 9,18

Secretive Israeli intelligence firm Black Cube was hired to engage in a campaign to discredit local NGOs, along with individuals connected to Jewish billionaire George Soros, ahead of Hungary’s presidential election earlier this year, POLITICO reported Friday.Recordings made by operatives of the Tel Aviv-based company were then used by Prime Minister Viktor Orban to attack rights groups and Soros himself in the days leading up to his landslide election victory in April, the report said.The magazine cited a former employee of the firm as well as an individual with knowledge of the organization who both confirmed the details. It provided numerous pieces of evidence backing up its claim, including addresses and names of fake individuals and companies used in the operation which Black Cube has used in the past.Politico said operatives for the company met with officials from local civil rights groups under false pretenses and identities, and made compromising recordings of those officials.Recordings included statements on efforts to lobby foreign governments to pressure Hungary against legislation cracking down on those NGOs. These were leaked to The Jerusalem Post and the state newspaper Magyar Idok, which both published stories on the issues.Orban himself used them in claiming enemies inside and outside Hungary were attempting to gain control of the country.“Soros’s people will be installed in government — this is what the ‘Soros Leaks’ recordings tell us,” Orban said in one interview before the election, in quotes provided by POLITICO.“If Soros’s people have influence in government, they will occupy the Hungarian energy sector and the banking system. And the Hungarian people will pay the price for that.”It is not known who hired Black Cube to allegedly conduct the operation. The report’s two sources were unable to confirm whether the money the Israeli firm was given for its work came from the Hungarian government, and a spokesman for the latter declined to comment on the claims.A spokesperson for Black Cube told the news magazine that the company’s policy is to not confirm or deny such claims made regarding its operations.Since 1979, the Hungarian-born Soros has funneled tens of billions of dollars into his Open Society Foundations (OSF), which in turn fund civil society groups around the world.Orban, who based his campaign on demonizing migrants, accuses Soros and organizations supported by his Open Society Foundations of seeking to allow thousands of immigrants into Hungary.In the lead up to the campaign, Orban’s Fidesz party plastered the country with billboards “warning” about Soros.One of them depicted the philanthropist and opposition candidates holding wire-cutters to destroy the razor-wire fence that Orban erected on the Serbian border in 2015 to keep out migrants.Orban and his government repeatedly attacked Soros using language that some critics have said has anti-Semitic undertones.While Black Cube has been accused of involvement in controversial dealings in the past, the POLITICO report claims the Hungarian presidential campaign would be the first time the private intelligence firm’s work has been allegedly used in an election campaign.As part of the operation, Black Cube agents met with the NGO staffers and Soros allies in various cities across Europe and the US pretending to be supporters. They used fake aliases, but two of them had “discernible Israeli accents,” those who met with them told POLITICO.After meetings with the intelligence firm’s targets were completed, information on the fabricated companies the agents had pretended to represent was deleted from the internet and telephone numbers were disconnected.-Black Cube logo-According to POLITICO, one of the fake email addresses given by Black Cube agents had been used in another operation launched by the private intelligence firm targeting actress Rose McGowan, after she accused Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of rape.A Black Cube board member later apologized for his firm’s work on behalf of Weinstein, and said it would not have assisted the disgraced producer had it had known it was helping suppress sexual assault allegations against him.Black Cube’s name has come up in a number of other high-profile intelligence gathering operations.In May, the New Yorker magazine reported that the firm was allegedly hired by aids to US President Donald Trump to dig up dirt on Obama officials in order to discredit the Iran nuclear deal.The operation in 2017 reportedly targeted Ann Norris, a former US State Department official who is married to Ben Rhodes, a foreign-policy adviser to former president Barack Obama and a prominent advocate of the Iran nuclear deal. It also targeted Rebecca Kahl, a former program officer at the National Democratic Institute and the wife of the former Obama administration foreign-policy adviser Colin Kahl.And Christopher Wylie, the whistleblower who revealed that data analysts Cambridge Analytica had harvested details of 50 million Facebook users and used the material in Trump’s election campaign, also told the British parliament that Black Cube was involved in a hacking scheme targeting the president of Nigeria.Black Cube denied involvement in both operations, in apparent deviations from its aforementioned policy of not confirming or denying reports on its work.Along with a second private intelligence company, Psy-Group, it is being sued for alleged defamation in a Canadian lawsuit by hedge fund West Face Capital Inc., for $500 million in damages. In one instance cited in that case, a Black Cube operative is alleged to have tried to entrap a retired Canadian judge into making anti-Semitic comments.In response to a Times of Israel request for comment on that case, Black Cube said last month: “It is Black Cube’s policy to never discuss its clients with any third party, and to never confirm or deny any speculation made with regard to the company’s work. Referencing Black Cube has become an international sport during 2018. It is important to note that Black Cube always operates in full compliance of the law in every jurisdiction in which it conducts its work, following legal advice from the world’s leading law firms.”

Iran executes 8 over 2017 Islamic State attack on Tehran-Mass hangings take place over a year after assault on parliament and shrine of Ayatollah Khomeini that killed at least 18 people and wounded more than 50-By Amir Vahdat and Jon Gambrell-TOI-JUL 9,18

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran said Saturday it executed eight people convicted in the 2017 Islamic State group attack on parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran.The June 7, 2017 attack has so far been the only assault by the Sunni extremists inside of Shiite Iran, which has been deeply involved in the wars in Iraq and Syria where the militants once held vast territory.The judiciary’s official Mizan news agency and semi-official news agencies in Iran acknowledged the executions Saturday, but did not say when they took place. Executions in Iran are carried out by hangings.While Iran is one of the world’s top enforcers of the death penalty, such mass executions are rare. In August 2016, human rights activists criticized Iran for carrying out the mass execution of 20 Sunni militants from a group identified as Jihad and Tawhid after a six-year trial. In August 2007, Iran hanged seven men convicted of rape in Mashhad at the same time.Mizan noted in its report that the executions came after the eight men had been tried and convicted in a trial that included both eyewitness testimony and video footage showing their involvement.“These eight worked directly … in martyring and wounding a number of innocent compatriots,” Mizan said.The news agencies on Saturday named those executed as Soleiman Mozafari, Esmail Sufi, Rahman Behrouz, Majed Mortezai, Sirous Azizi, Ayoub Esmaili, Khosro Ramezani and Osman Behrouz.The Islamic State attack killed at least 18 people and wounded more than 50. It saw gunmen carrying Kalashnikov assault rifles and explosives storm the parliament complex where a legislative session had been in progress, starting an hours-long siege.Meanwhile, gunmen and suicide bombers also struck outside Khomeini’s mausoleum on Tehran’s southern outskirts. Khomeini led the 1979 Islamic Revolution that toppled the Western-backed shah to become Iran’s first supreme leader until his death in 1989.The assault shocked Tehran, which largely has avoided militant attacks in the decades after the tumult surrounding the Islamic Revolution.Over a dozen others remain on trial over the attack. Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard responded to the attack by launching six missiles into eastern Syria targeting IS militants.Iran was second only to China in 2017 in the number of known executions carried out, according to Amnesty International. Iran executed over 500 people last year, according to the group.The IS executions come as controversy still swirls in Iran surrounding the country’s mass executions of 1988 near the end of the Iran-Iraq War. Activists at the time said Iran executed as many as 5,000 people after sham trials of Communists, Kurdish separatists, political prisoners and members of an Iranian exile group known as the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq.The executions represent one of the darkest moments of Iran’s post-revolution history and are still not recognized by its government.

Two US destroyers sail into Taiwan Strait: Taiwan gov't-[AFP]-YAHOONEWS-July 7, 2018

Taipei (AFP) - Two United States warships entered the Taiwan Strait on Saturday, the Taiwanese government said, at a time of heightened tensions between Washington and Beijing.The destroyers USS Mustin and USS Benfold sailed into the narrow waterway separating Taiwan and China on Saturday morning and were expected to continue on a northeast course, Taiwan's defence ministry said in a statement."The military is monitoring the situation in neighbouring areas, and has the confidence and abilities to maintain regional stability and defend national security," the statement added.A defence ministry official told AFP the ships were still in the strait on Saturday night, sailing in what he described as international waters.The warships’ entry into the strait comes as Washington and Beijing are locked in a trade war and as tensions escalate between Beijing and Taipei.China sees self-ruling democratic Taiwan as part of its territory to be reunified, but the island sees itself as a sovereign country.Although the US does not have official diplomatic relations with Taiwan, it is its most powerful ally and biggest arms supplier.China has stepped up diplomatic and military pressure on Taiwan since Beijing-sceptic President Tsai Ing-wen took office two years ago as her government refuses to acknowledge that the island is part of "one China."Relations between the US and Taiwan have warmed recently as President Donald Trump signed legislation paving the way for mutual visits by top officials and the US government approved a licence required to sell submarine technology to Taiwan.

          Stocks, metals hit by new US trade war salvo      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Stocks fell and metals prices slumped to their lowest in a year on Wednesday, as US threats of tariffs on an additional $200 billion worth of Chinese goods pushed the worlds two biggest economies ever closer to a full-scale trade war.The detailing overnight of US President Donald Trumps already-threatened 10 percent tariffs on an additional $200 billion of Chinese goods dampened hopes that Washington will eventually step back from the escalating row.The clock now starts ticking on a two-month period of public comment before the levies get imposed. Trump has said he may ultimately target more than $500 billion worth of Chinese goods - roughly the total amount of US imports from China last year.Shanghai markets were hardest hit overnight with stocks there down almost 2 percent and the yuan weakening towards last weeks 11-month lows, down 0.4 percent to 6.66 per dollar.Hong Kongs Hang Seng lost more than 1 percent, as did Japans Nikkei as the yen received something of a safety bid.Europes main bourses, also taken aback as Trump kicked off a NATO summit in Brussels by accusing Germany of being a captive of Russia, then saw similar falls.There is still a good six or seven weeks before these (tariffs) take effect so it is not like we are going to see these tomorrow, but it is definitely the next step in a trade war, TD Securities global strategist James Rossiter said.Im curious to see what China does to retaliate in the coming days.The concerns were also evident in currency markets.The Australian dollar, often seen as a proxy for Chinese economic fortunes, fell 0.6 percent as did South Koreas won and Mexicos peso which also faces the threat of Trump ditching the NAFTA trade pact.It was industrial metals prices though that took the heaviest hit over worries that the dispute could ultimately dent Chinas commodity-hungry economy.Copper, zinc and lead all slumped between 3 and 4 percent to their lowest levels in about a year. Copper was down 3 percent at $6,141.50. Nickel, tin and aluminum also dropped to multi-month lows.Trumps latest move took the wind out of investors sails largely because the central scenario for many in the markets is that Washington will eventually step back from the escalating row and settle for some sort of compromise.The more it turns up the heat therefore, the more likely the tariffs get implemented just like the 25 percent levies on $34 billion of Chinese and US imports triggered on Friday.There is a two-month period of public comment on the latest proposed list before the tariffs get imposed.There certainly is going to be pronounced risks mainly because weve now moved on to the tit-for-tat-for-tit phase of it, said Vishnu Varathan, head of economics and strategy at Mizuho Bank in Singapore.This is going to drag on until they can all come to the table and agree to even the playing field. But the unpredictability of the situation continues to rattle the markets, said Varathan.WALL STREET IN FOCUSWashington had proposed the extra tariffs after efforts to negotiate a solution to the dispute failed to reach an agreement, senior administration officials said on Tuesday.Wall Streets SandP 500 had closed at its highest level in almost six months overnight but futures on the index and the Dow Jones were down 0.8-0.9 percent respectively , which pointed to a bumpy restart later.The yen, often sought in times of political tensions and market turmoil, gained against a number of peers.The dollar traded at 111.02 yen, pulling back from a near two-month peak of 111.355. The euro fell 0.2 percent to $1.1725 and the Australian dollar lost 0.6 percent to $0.7408.Chinas yuan meanwhile dropped 0.45 percent against the dollar to move back towards an 11-month low plumbed last week.Demand for assets that traditionally ride out turbulence saw the 10-year Treasury note yield fall 3 basis points to 2.84 percent. That was a pullback from a one-week peak of 2.875 percent scaled the previous day.Bond yields across most of Europe were 2 to 3 basis points lower too. Germanys 10-year Bund yield fell 2 bps to 0.30 percent though UK gilts missed out as Brexit turmoil continue to batter the countrys ruling Conservative party.Oil prices were also hit by the trade war concerns. The US had said it would consider requests from some countries to be exempted from other sanctions that it plans put into effect in November that prevent Iran from exporting oil.Brent crude futures lost 0.8 percent to $78.22 a barrel. Oil had risen the previous day, supported by a larger-than expected US stock draw and supply concerns in Norway and Libya.REUTERS JA 1444

          Brent disobeyed the president      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Interruptions in supplies in Libya, Venezuela, Canada and Norway, Iran's threats to block the Strait of Hormuz, and some weakness of the US dollar after the release of the US labor market report for June allowed the bulls for Brent and WTI to continue the rally. If oil can update the May highs, the road in the direction of $ 83-85 per barrel will be opened. According to Tehran, the aim of restraining the price of black gold tweets of Donald Trump, in fact, can bring the North Sea grade to the psychologically important mark of $ 100 per barrel. Who is bigger? Sanford C. Bernstein & Co draws attention to the reduction in oil companies' stocks by an average of 30% since the beginning of 2000 and the increase in urban population in Asia by 1 billion over the next two decades. As a result, the demand for cars and gasoline will rise sharply, which will launch a new super cycle on black gold and allow it to grow to $ 150 per barrel.

The US president demands from his military allies (primarily from Saudi Arabia) to increase production to 2 million bpd, knowing full well that the OPEC decisions on the curtailment of the production of "bulls" for Brent and WTI at the end of June cannot be stopped. The states are exerting pressure on buyers of Iranian oil, and if their plan to reduce exports from this Middle Eastern country translates into life, then the market will take 2.5 million bpd. Tehran is the fifth oil producer in the world with a production volume of 3.8 million bpd. The country's leadership claims that it is ready to sell as much black gold as it can.

The support of Brent and WTI is provided by the factor of production reduction in Libya from 1.28 million bpd in February to the current 527 thousand bpd. According to Capital Economics estimates, the market may lose about 2 million bpd from Iran and 1 million bpd from Venezuela, which will widen the deficit and help develop the "bullish" conjuncture of the black gold market.

At first glance, instead of putting pressure on OPEC, Donald Trump could spur the activity of American producers. For a long time, the oil market was living in tug-of-war conditions between those working on reducing the cartel's output and companies from the States that used price increases to hike their own production and simultaneously hedge the risks. They let the number of drilling rigs from Baker Hughes grow (+5 to 863 in the week of July 6), and the Energy Information Administration forecasts an increase in production to a record 11.8 million bpd, no problems with the infrastructure have been canceled. For example, in the Perm basin in 2019 will produce 1 million bpd more than its pipes can afford to pump.

The hand to help the "bulls" for Brent and WTI is fixing profit to the US dollar after the publication of disappointing statistics on US unemployment and the average wage. The first indicator increased from 3.8% to 4%, the second did not reach the forecasts of experts from Bloomberg (+ 0.2% vs. + 0.3% m / m)

Technically, a breakthrough of resistance at $ 79.5 and $ 80.5 per barrel will open the "bulls" along Brent road to the north in the direction of the target for 127.2% and 161.8% for the AB = CD pattern.

          US stocks rise on oil, strong earnings as dollar gains      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The S&P 500 stock index hit a four-month high yesterday, boosted by higher oil prices and strong earnings, while the US dollar rose against the safe-haven Japanese yen as investors bought riskier assets. World share markets remained near three-week highs, supported by optimism about US company earnings and the notion that global economic growth can withstand trade tensions. “The first major earnings report came out, and PepsiCo’s earnings beat expectations and that’s a good start for the market,” said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Spartan Capital Securities in New York. Energy shares were also lifted by oil prices, which rose due to growing supply outages as Norway shut one oilfield amid a worker strike and Libya said production fell by more than half in recent months. Brent crude – up almost 20 per cent this year – was last at $78.71, up 0.82 per cent on the day. US crude rose 0.22 per cent to $74.01 per barrel. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 128.19 points, or 0.52 per cent, to 24,904.78, the S&P 500 gained 7.66 points, or 0.28 per cent, to 2,791.83 and the Nasdaq Composite added 11.46 points, or 0.15 per cent, to 7,767.66.

          Saudi Oil Production Surges By Over 400,000 Barrels In June: OPEC      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The energy community was looking with particular interest to the latest, just released July OPEC monthly report, for signs of the promised - if only by Saudi Arabia - boost in oil output, and it got what it was looking for, if to a lesser extent than some had expected: in June, OPEC's collective oil production rose by 173Kb/d to 32.327MM, according to secondary sources.

While the total production rose to the highest level in months, it was well below both year end 2016 and 2017 production, both of which were above 32.6MM as a result of production declines and stoppages among some key OPEC members.

In June, Crude output was boosted mostly in Saudi Arabia, where it increased by over 400K to 10.420mmb/d, with Iraq, Nigeria, Kuwait and UAE also increasing their monthly production. On a self-reported basis, Saudi said it had boosted output by 459kb/d, bringing the total to 10,489mmb/d.

Meanwhile, production declined in Angola as well as the two more troubled nations Libya, which has recently seen a sharp drop in output due to political infighting, and Venezuela, where the nation is grinding to a halt due to the ongoing economic collapse.

That said, Libya may soon be returning to peak production with the NOC announcing overnight it had regained control of Eastern oil ports, with operations set to resume to normal levels “in a few hours."

Elsewhere in the report, OPEC's 2018 global oil demand growth forecast remained unchanged, forecast to increase by around 1.65mln bpd to average 98.85mln bpd. In 2019, initial projections indicate a global increase of around 1.45mln bpd, with annual average global consumption anticipated to surpass the 100mln bpd threshold. Non-OPEC oil supply (now excluding the Republic of the Congo) in 2018 was revised up from the previous MOMR by 140k bpd to average 59.54mln bpd; an increase of 2mln bpd Y/Y.

OPEC also cautioned that U.S. refinery runs may drop from near-record level in coming month amid strong gasoline inventories, something we have seen in practice in recent weeks.

"High gasoline inventories and weak refining margins, despite positive performances in the bottom of the barrel, are most likely going to pressure refinery runs from the current high levels in the coming month."

The report also noted that US oil products market in June showed “substantial losses” amid high crude prices and lower gasoline demand, and added that refinery margins declined in June because of lower gasoline demand, high crude prices and narrowing WTI/Brent spread.

The report also observed that U.S. crude intake levels almost hit record levels, leading to higher product output, further pressuring product markets with demand lower than expected; meanwhile refinery utilization rates increased in June to average 96.9%; thoughput at 18m b/d, up 837k b/d m/m.

Finally, addressing the most critical outstanding issue, whether supply can meet global demand, OPEC said that there is enough "rival" supply to meet 2019 demand, when OPEC sees "rival", i.e. shale, supply to meet demand growth.

In other words, OPEC is happy to abdicate the title of the marginal oil producer to the US. Whether shale can take advantage of this will determine whether oil continues to surge in the next year, or once again tumbles. Meanwhile, if oil indeed hits $150/bbl as some have predicted, the outcome will be simple: recession, which will be the surest, most effective way of sending oil prices lower.

 


          "Past Point Of No Return": World Markets Tumble Amid Global Trade War Shockwaves      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In almost every way, the overnight trading action has been a mirror image of the ramp observed on Monday morning, when trade tensions - inexplicably, one trading day after trade war started - were said to have "gone away" leading to a furious global rally.

Not so much today, when hours after Trump unveiled the second round of trade war - at the worst possible time according to bulls, just ahead of earnings season, once again spoiling the positive effect of what is set to be another 20%+ EPS rise for the S&P - by pushing ahead with plans to impose tariffs of 10% on an additional $200 billion of Chinese goods by releasing a list of targeted products that includes consumer items such as clothing, television components and refrigerators, global stocks are a sea of red amid a worldwide market selloff as traders realized that not only is trade war not hibernating, but it is set to keep getting worse as Steven Englander explained last night, as escalation has now crossed past "the point of no return."

While the duties have some time before taking effect, and the soonest they could be implemented would be after public consultations end on Aug. 30, Beijing has described the move as “totally unacceptable” bullying and vowed it will be forced to retaliate, without however giving details. 

However, the biggest risk is that, as Bloomberg wrote, Trump has pushing his China trade conflict beyond "a point of no return", where neither side can back down. China now has seven weeks to make a deal or dig in and try to outlast the U.S. leader. However, president Xi Jinping, facing his own political pressures to look tough, has vowed to respond blow-for-blow. He’s already imposed retaliatory duties targeting Trump’s base including Iowa soybeans and Kentucky bourbon.

Yet matching the latest U.S. barrage would force China to either levy much higher tariffs or take more disruptive steps like canceling purchase orders, encouraging consumer boycotts and putting up regulatory hurdles. Not only does that risk provoking Trump to follow through on threats to tax virtually all Chinese products, it could unleash nationalist sentiment on both sides that fuels a deeper struggle for geopolitical dominance.

“It’s already past the point of no return,” said Pauline Loong, managing director at research firm Asia-Analytica in Hong Kong. “What’s next is not so much a trade war or even a cold war as the dawn of an ice age in relations between China and the United States.”

As noted above, the Chinese Commerce Ministry said on Wednesday that it would be forced to retaliate against what it called “totally unacceptable” U.S. tariffs, with China’s Vice Minister of Commerce Wang Shouwen saying in comments to Bloomberg that Beijing “never yields to threat or blackmail” and will retaliate against the “groundless” tariffs."

"The U.S. side ignored the progress, adopted unilateral and protectionist measures, and started the trade war.”

In the aftermath of the latest development, OCBC analysts told clients to “expect a risk-off tone to prevail over Asian markets today as investors prepare for the next escalation of U.S.-Sino trade tensions and China’s response."

They were right, and sure enough the two key markets that everyone looks at first in the morning, US equity futures, which are down over 20 points and set for the biggest drop in 2 weeks, wiping out the gains from the past two days...

... and the Shanghai Composite, which closed -1.8% lower after sliding even more earlier in the session...

... have been hammered, dragging down the rest of global assets. Here one reason why Trump may be willing to keep pressing China is that a pattern observed so far in the escalating battle between the world’s top two economies is that the tensions hit Chinese shares harder than American ones - they are now in a bear market, while the S&P 500 is within about 3 percent of a record high.

In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 Index ended its best run since March, led lower by tariff-related sectors such as miners and autos and the MSCI Asia Pacific Index fell. Stoxx 600 basic resources index SXPP dropped as much as 3.4%, most in 2-1/2 weeks, with technical charts showing index testing key support levels amid new escalation in global trade war. After rising back over the 200DMA, Stoxx 600 is back under this key moving average.

Commenting on the latest escalation, Nomura FX strategist Dushyant Padmanabhan said that "this escalation, and the timing of it, seems to have caught the market a bit by surprise," adding that "the $34 billion and $16 billion tariffs were well flagged and, as such, had little impact on markets,” but while this $200 billion has been mentioned before there’s no clear sense of timing around it.

Meanwhile, China's currency - that other global risk on/off catalyst - tumbled, with the offshore yuan falling as much as 0.74%, the most in a week, and dropping 1000 pips in 2 days...

... while the onshore yuan slid 0.46% to 6.6710 and was headed for the weakest close in 11 months, since August 2017. The Yuan may fall closer toward multi-year low of just below 7 per dollar, with 6.7 the next key level to watch, Nomura strategists wrote in note Wednesday

At the same time, the dollar rallied strongly against G-10 and all other currencies too as the latest escalation in the U.S.-China trade war caught the market off guard, increasingly shorted the greenback and long-risk.


Elsewhere in FX, the euro predictably weakened the most in more than a week to re-test the 1.17 level, while the pound dropped ahead of the publication of the Brexit white paper Thursday. That said, there was one silver lining in overnight trading: volatility in G-4 currencies saw a rather muted response with traders in no rush to add exposure as the new list of tariffs won’t be implemented till end-August. The loonie fell toward a one-week low before the Bank of Canada’s rate decision and amid lower oil prices. Meanwhile, the Australia and New Zealand dollars led losses among G-10 currencies on renewed trade war.

"In the short run it’s very difficult to see what’s going to bring an end to this escalation of tit-for-tat," Richard Turnill, chief investment strategist for BlackRock told Bloomberg TV. “It’s those increasing concerns that are going to weigh on market returns and force investors increasingly to look for more resilience in their portfolios.”

In rates, US Treasuries were trading close to overnight highs, with the curve unchanged. The yield on the 10Y dropped 4 bps to 2.83%: the lower yields slide, the greater the threat a sharp short squeeze takes them even lower as a result of another record shorts in the US rates complex.

In commodities, oil dropped below $74 a barrel in New York, even as the latest API report showed shrinking U.S. crude stockpiles. Brent is falling faster than WTI as a result of Libya's NOC resuming control of Eastern oil ports, with operations set to resume to normal levels “in a few hours." This is undoing the support offered on Tuesday by a larger than expected draw in API crude inventories. The metals sector is also seeing broad based losses, with Gold down 0.2%, copper falling over 3% during Asia-Pac trade to its lowest in around a year, Shanghai zinc fell limit down shortly after the Chinese open and lead is languishing around near 1 year lows. Platinum is also in negative territory with the market set for its 4th consecutive surplus this year, on the back of falling demand in the auto sector, as according to the CPM Group.

What to watch today: NATO summit in Brussels; U.S. sells 10-year notes; producer prices, wholesale inventories; BOC rate decision, press conference to follow; New York Fed President John Williams, ECB’s Mersch and Nouy speak.

Asian stocks slumped across the board with sentiment spooked on increased trade concerns after the US announced a new tariff list on an additional USD 200bln worth of Chinese goods. The renewed US trade offensive picks up from Trump’s threats made last month and in turn weighed heavily on US equity futures as well as Asia-Pac bourses, while some commodities in Shanghai went into free fall alongside the broad risk-averse tone. ASX 200 (-0.7%) and Nikkei 225 (-1.2%) were lower with commodity-related sectors in Australia suffering after declines in the complex in which Shanghai Zinc fell 6% to hit limit down and copper fell to its lowest in about a year, while losses in Tokyo were exacerbated by safe haven flows into the JPY. Elsewhere, Hang Seng (-1.3%) and Shanghai Comp. (-1.8%) took the brunt of the increased trade tensions, although both were off the day’s lows after an initial composed response from China which stated it was vital to send a positive signal of cooperation and suggested that if the US will go low, it will go high. Finally, T-note futures traded higher overnight with prices spurred by the tariff list announcement, while 10yr JGBs were flat after they failed to benefit from the broad risk-averse tone, as well as the BoJ’s presence in the market for JPY 960bln in 1yr-10yr maturities.

In FX, AUD Extending recent losses vs its US counterpart and underperformance within the G10 bloc, with a further retreat from near 0.7500 peaks to breach support just ahead of the big figure below (0.7401 was the 10 DMA and support from there not seen until the 61.8% fib around 0.7377). The Aud continues to track US-China import tariff developments as a barometer for wider global trade contagion and repercussions given closest links and relations with China, while its NZD antipodean peer is less sensitive and has held up better as a result – cross back below 1.0900 but Kiwi losing 0.6800 vs the Usd. CNH/CNY - Taking a direct hit from threats to raise the bar on imports to $250 bn in total by Beijing in response to a further $200 bn Chinese goods and services listed by the White House, but also weaker via the latest PBoC Cny fix amidst ongoing speculation that depreciation could be deployed as another trade war weapon. Usd/Cny closed around 6.6667, with resistance for Usd/Cnh just above 6.7000 subsequently tested. EM/SCANDI : Weaker across the board on general risk-off position and more independent bearish factors as the Lira lurches again on more fall-out from President Erdogan’s cabinet appointments and Usd/Try rallies to circa 4.7600+ again. 

In commodities, oil is currently being hit by the risk-off mood, with both Brent and WTI in the red. Brent is falling faster than WTI as a result of Libya's NOC resuming control of Eastern oil ports, with operations set to resume to normal levels “in a few hours” as of 08:45 BST. This is undoing the support offered on Tuesday by a larger than expected draw in API crude inventories. The metals sector is also seeing broad based losses, with Gold down 0.2%, copper fell over 3% during Asia-Pac trade to its lowest in around a year, Shanghai zinc fell limit down shortly after the Chinese open and lead is languishing around near 1 year lows. Platinum is also in negative territory with the market set for its 4th consecutive surplus this year, on the back of falling demand in the auto sector, as according to the CPM Group.

Looking at the day ahead, in the US the most significant release is the June PPI report (core PPI of 2.6% yoy expected), while May wholesale trades sales and final May wholesale inventories are also due. Away from the data, BoE Governor Mark Carney will speak late in the afternoon on the global financial crisis at a conference in Boston while New York Fed President John Williams will speak to business and community leaders at an event in Brooklyn. Meanwhile the NATO meeting begins, continuing into Thursday, while Japan PM Abe meets European Council President Tusk and EC President Juncker.

DB's Jim Reid concludes the overnight wrap

It’s a sign of how good England have been at this World Cup that even without playing last night they made it through to the last 3. Happy days. Congratulations to readers in France and commiserations to those in Belgium this morning. Whoever gets through tonight will have a tough game against a very skilful French team. Ahead of the biggest game in this country for 28 years tonight I’m a little fragile this morning. Last night I finished packing away the last of nearly 2000 CDs I’ve had in my garages since streaming came along and made them largely redundant. They are to be collected by a charity shop today although given some of my peculiar album purchases over the years some of them might remain on the shelf longer than England’s football team have been away from a World Cup final. In skimming through them as I packed, it really did feel like I was saying goodbye to the soundtrack to my adolescence and young adult life. I hope I’ve done the right thing. If you think I’m going to regret this please let me know ASAP before they get picked up today and are gone forever. This moving house thing is very stressful and we haven’t even moved yet.

As a contrast, this week has been noticeable for the lack of stress mostly due to no further escalation of the trade dispute. However things have taken a different turn after the US markets closed overnight. The US Trade Representative  office has released a list of an additional $200bn worth of Chinese imports to be hit with higher tariffs of 10%, although a final decision on the tariffs is not expected until after the public consultations period which ends on 30th August. The  affected product list includes consumer goods such as clothing, refrigerators but excludes items such as mobile phones. In terms of initial reactions, China’s Commerce Ministry noted it is “shocked” by the US actions which “were hurting China… the entire world and the US itself” and that it will have no choice but to respond to the US move. Back in the US, the Senate Finance Chair Hatch called the proposal “reckless”.

This morning in Asia, markets have pared back deeper losses at the open to trade c1.5% lower with the Nikkei (-0.96%), Kospi (-0.53%), Hang Seng (-1.42%) and Shanghai Comp. (-1.87%) all down as we type. Meanwhile the Chinese Yuan is down c0.4% and futures on the S&P are also down c0.6%. Datawise, Japan’s June PPI edged up 0.1ppt mom to an in line print of 2.8% yoy.

As a reminder, DB’s Peter Hooper and team have recently published a note looking at the impact of trade frictions on the US macro economy. They noted that higher tariffs on $250bn worth of Chinese goods and $350bn worth of automotive products could reduce imports and lift the US GDP by c0.5ppt. However, this gain is likely to be swamped by various negative effects if the tariffs are actually implemented. These include: i) -0.4ppt hit to US GDP from higher prices and lower consumer spending, ii) -0.6ppt on US GDP from retaliatory tariffs from China and the EU as it depresses exports and iii) -0.5ppt hit to GDP from the confidence hit to businesses and households, particularly the flow on drags on investments and consumption spending. Refer to their note for details.

As for markets yesterday, risk assets edged up in the absence of further trade tensions (before the peace was shattered overnight) and investors turning their focus to the US results season. The S&P was up for the fourth straight day (+0.35%) as PepsiCo’s share price jumped the most in c9 year (+4.8%) following an above market result and guidance that Q4 earnings will be "substantially higher”. Elsewhere financials was the only sector in the red after rallying the prior day. In Europe, the Stoxx 600 advanced for the sixth straight day (+0.4%), marking the longest winning streak since March. As a quick stock take, the S&P is now the highest in c5 months and +8.2% higher than its February lows, albeit still down -2.8% from its record high in January. In comparison the Stoxx 600 and Shanghai Comp. are down -4.1% and -20.6% respectively from their January high, although the former has partly recovered to a c1 month high. The overnight news will likely put a dent in these recoveries though.

In government bonds, yields on 10y treasuries reversed earlier gains of c2bp to close -0.6bp lower at 2.851% following the aforementioned threat of higher tariffs on Chinese goods. We’re another 1bps lower in the Asian session. Back in Europe, core bonds broadly weakened (Bunds +2bp; OATs +1.3bp) while Gilts rose +4.9bp as Brexit uncertainties somewhat stabilised and GDP data pointed to a healthy return in economic growth.

In FX, Sterling reversed losses to be up +0.12% as concerns for a potential leadership challenge to PM May eased and German Chancellor Merkel also seems to be backing PM May’s softer Brexit proposal, calling it a “solid step forward”, although she also added that “we’ll continue to have lively discussions (on the proposals)”. Meanwhile the US dollar index (+0.09%) and Euro (-0.06%) were both little changed, while Brent oil rose for the second straight day (+1.01%).

Following on with some more specific Brexit headlines. After PM May’s latest proposal for a softer Brexit approach, the EU’s Chief Brexit negotiator seems to be pushing back on the plans, indicating that “we’ll protect this single market, which is based on the indivisibility of…..the four freedoms…of people, goods, services and capital”. Notably, Bloomberg cited sources that noted EU diplomats have not fully started going through the UK plans yet while the Irish PM Varadkar was relatively upbeat as he noted the EU may be “entering into a space” where it can show flexibility in Brexit talks. So lots bubbling along.

Moving onto Italy, the Bank of Italy Governor and the ECB’s Visco noted that Italy’s economic growth has slowed this year and could face follow on risks linked to the US tariffs decisions, but he still expects growth to be above 1%, in part given the supportive financial policy conditions in the EU bloc. He also added that a relaunch of investments and pro-growth policies are as important as cautious management of public finances for the country.

Before we take a look at today’s calendar, we wrap up with other data releases from yesterday. In the US, the May JOLTS report reported a 0.1ppt mom rise in the quits rate to 2.4% - the highest since February 2001, which should bode well for expectations of future wage gains. Meanwhile the June NFIB small business optimism index moderated 0.6pts from last month’s 34 year high to an above market print of 107.2 (vs. 106.9 expected).

In Europe, the macro data were broadly weaker than expectations. In Germany, the July ZEW survey on the current situation was 72.4 (vs. 78.1 expected) while the expectations index fell for the fifth straight month to the lowest level  since 2012 (-24.7 vs. -18.9 expected). Meanwhile the Euro area’s ZEW expectations reading also fell to the lowest since August 2012 (-18.7 vs. -12.6 previous). For May industrial productions, the UK, France and Italy’s readings were all weaker than expectations at 0.8% yoy (vs. 1.9% expected), -0.9% (vs. 0.4% expected) and 2.1% (vs. 2.8% expected) respectively. Back in the UK, the May trade deficit was narrower than expected at -£2.8bn (vs. -£3.4bn expected) with upward revisions to the prior month’s reading. Elsewhere, the inaugural ONS estimate of monthly GDP growth indicated that the economy grew at an in line rate of 0.3% mom in May and based on the first two months of the quarter, Q2 appears on track for growth of about 0.4% qoq (vs. 0.2% previous). Following the above and no escalation in the political risk, the implied Bloomberg odds of an August rate hike rose 7ppt to 74%.

Looking at the day ahead, there are no releases of note in Europe while in the US the most significant release is the June PPI report (core PPI of 2.6% yoy expected), while May wholesale trades sales and final May wholesale inventories are also due. Away from the data, BoE Governor Mark Carney will speak late in the afternoon on the global financial crisis at a conference in Boston while New York Fed President John Williams will speak to business and community leaders at an event in Brooklyn. Meanwhile the NATO meeting begins, continuing into Thursday, while Japan PM Abe meets European Council President Tusk and EC President Juncker. Meanwhile the ECB’s Draghi, Praet, Mersch and Nouy will speak at Frankfurt. Oh and England will meet Croatia for a place in the World Cup final!!

The east Libyan strongman Gen Khalifa Haftar has handed back control of the oil ports under his authority to the country’s national oil corporation, ending a three-week dispute that had effectively closed down the country’s oil industry and threatened to strangle efforts at political reconciliation across Libya.

The ports of Ras Lanuf, Es Sider, Zueitina and Hariga were all handed back to NOC control without any obvious tangible concession being made to Haftar.

          'Turned From Rescue to Piracy': Migrants Threatened to Kill Ship's Crew Unless Sailed to Europe      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
African migrants who thought they would be denied passage to Europe became violent and threatened to kill the crew of an Italian supply ship that had rescued them. Vos Thalassa, a specialist Offshore Supply Ship which works supporting French oil and gas company Total, picked up more than 60 migrants after responding to a distress call in the Mediterranean on Sunday night. But within minutes, the crew were taken "hostage" by the people they allowed onboard, which reported that some of the individuals who were rescued became enraged when a Libyan coastguard boat arrived on the scene to take the illegal immigrants to safety. "It turned from a rescue to piracy," commented the Italian transport ministry, stating that "death threats were made". Libyan Coast Guard spokesman Admiral Ayoub Qassem said: "The tugboat, which had been hired by Libya for logistics operations supporting some oil platforms off our coasts, intervened to rescue 63 people aboard a wooden boat." The migrants grew increasingly aggressive and threatened to kill the crew "because they did not want to return to Libya in any way" when they saw the boat, "forcing it to head north", he added. "We did not want to do anything that could further degenerate the situation. Our priority was to ensure the safety of the crew and all the other people," Qassem told Italian Journalist Agency (AGI), adding he feared the incident could be the first of many "migrant revolts" to come. On Monday the migrants were passed over to an Italian coastguard boat, which intervened after being alerted to a "situation of serious danger for the security of the [Vos Thalassa] and its crew ... caused by attitudes threatening the crew by some migrants", according to a statement. | http://bit.ly/2N7hWpz

Residents of California city once known as 'America's foreclosure capital' are set to get monthly $500 stipend, with NO strings attached, in bid to boost local economy

Note:  Only 100 people.  There have been lots of trials of this idea over the years but it has always proved too costly

Stockton, California will become the first city in the country to participate in a test of Universal Basic Income, in which 100 residents will be given $500-dollars-a-month, with no strings attached.

The program aims to create a level of income that no one will fall beneath.

By providing impoverished residents a regular sum of money that they can use on anything they wish, be it food, clothes, gas, or [drugs] starting a new venture, those behind the program believe it could go a long way to give people enough support to try out new ideas.

The program in Stockton, which was once known as America's foreclosure capital, will see the program launched by 2019, and the payments will continue to the individuals chosen for the program for a full 18-months.

The Stockton UBI program has heavy backing from one of the wealthiest areas of the country- Silicon Valley, according to CNN Money.

The idea is, in part, to off-set the economic distress the growing automation industry is expected to cause to American laborers, as well as a way to potentially reduce poverty.

One of the backers for the Stockton UBI program is Facebook's co-founder Chris Hughes, whose organization, the Economic Security Project, contributed $1 million to the Stockton initiative.

'It is such a fundamental idea behind America that if you work hard, you can get ahead, and you certainly don't live in poverty. But that isn't true today, and it hasn't been true in the country for decades,' Hughes told CNN Money.

'I believe that unless we make significant changes today, the income inequality in our country will continue to grow and call into question the very nature of our social contract.'

One-in-four people in the city of more than 300,000 live in poverty, with the median  household income sitting at $49,271, compared to $57,617 nationally.

The city's inhabitants are also largely minorities with 70 per cent identifying themselves as such.

'Stockton is a city that looks a lot like the rest of America,' said Natalie Foster, co-founder and co-chair of the Economic Security Project.

Several heavy hitters in Silicon Valley have touted the importance of exploring funded programs for those living in poverty, such as Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.

'We should explore ideas like universal basic income to make sure that everyone has a cushion to try new ideas,' Zuckerberg said at a Harvard commencement address in May 2017.

'We have a bunch of folks starting off life already behind, born into communities that don't have a lot of opportunity,' said Stockton Mayor Michael Tubbs.

'My mom always used to say, 'You have to get out of  Stockton.' ... But I want Stockton to be a place people want to live in.'

And a real fear for cities like Stockton is the 'looming threat of automation and displacement,' as Tubbs puts it.

He says the companies that are building these technologies, like the ones in Silicon Valley, ultimately 'have a responsibility to make sure people aren't adversely impacted and also make their communities better places.'

'I've watched the tech community become very interested in Universal Basic Income for the past several years. I think it stems from one part guilt and one part optimism,' Foster said.

'These are folks who believe in the moonshot, believe in the big ideas, and that nothing is too big.'

Meanwhile existing cash transfer programs such as one in Alaska- where for the past 40-years residents receive varying annual cash payment from oil royalties- are being looked at as an example of the possibilities UBI could hold for under-served communities. 

'They use it to save for education, to get them through seasonal changes in their work, or to pay for heating during the winter when that gets much more expensive,' Foster said.

Similar UBI programs have been tested around the world by various organizations such as in Finland, Italy, Uganda, Cambodia and India.

For example in Finland, a monthly stipend of 560 euros was given to 2,000 unemployed people between the ages of 25 and 58. In Cambodia, $5 a month went to pregnant women and children.

'I believe Islam killed my daughter': A grieving mother tells how her daughter cut off all contact with family and friends to marry an older Muslim man who left her on a bathroom floor for FIVE DAYS to die

Siobhann Brown had not heard from her eldest daughter since she called five years earlier saying she was converting to Islam to get married and have her first child. Then two Victoria Police detectives arrived at her door.

Ashlee Brown, 25, had been found dead on her bathroom floor with more than 100 blunt and sharp force injuries covering most of her body.

The mother of three children under five had been bound, gagged and had her long strawberry blonde hair cut off. 

Ashlee's husband Mohamed Naddaf, 37, told police he had found his wife in that state in their garage about five days earlier but chose to 'care' for her in the bathroom rather than call Triple 0.

Ms Brown had to run out of her house in disbelief when she heard how her daughter died. She is now faced with Naddaf pleading guilty to manslaughter, without ever going to trial.

'Ashlee was a fun-loving girl,' Ms Brown told Daily Mail Australia. 'She was giving. She was loving. She loved the sun, the beach. She loved singing, dancing, having fun.'

Ashlee had been raised in country Victoria as a 'typical Aussie girl' and gradually grew restless as she hit her late teenage years.

She took increasingly regular trips to Melbourne, once returning to introduce her family to Mohamed Rannaf when she was was about 18. 'She introduced him as "Macca",' Ms Brown said. 'It was very brief.

'He seemed like a nice, very polite, young man. It pains me to say that. I didn't see him again after that.'

There was no communication for some time before a phone call came 'out of the blue' that would herald the end of all contact between Ms Brown and her daughter.

When Ashlee was about 20 she rang to say she was pregnant and wanted her mother's blessing to convert to Islam and marry Mohamed.

'She said to me, "Mum, I need your blessing to become Muslim". She said "I'm three months' pregnant and I'm engaged to Mohamed. I would really like to marry him, mum, and settle down and have a baby".

'I said to her, "Darling, I don’t know anything about the Muslim religion. As long as you know what you're doing. 'I said, "Do you have to wear one of those burqas or hijabs? I didn't know what they were called.

'She said, "No mum, only when I go into the mosque because it's disrespectful for a woman to show her face before God".

'I said to Ashlee, "As long as you're making a fully informed decision and it's what you really want".'

Ashlee said that it was.

'There was a pause after that,' Ms Brown said. 'She said. "Thank you, mum". And then her voice seemed to change and she said, "It's Islam". That didn't mean anything to me at the time.

'We said goodbye to each other and we hung up and I didn't hear from Ashlee again.'

Ms Brown said she was convinced the lack of subsequent contact with Ashlee was solely down to her religious conversion and Rannaf controlling his wife. 'I believe Islam killed my daughter,' the 46-year-old said.

'If I could have taken that phone call back I would have not have given her my blessing. I would have said "No, sorry love".

Police initially charged Naddaf with assault and false imprisonment, after paramedics found her dead in the couple's home at Craigieburn, in Melbourne's north, on November 6, 2016.

They later accused Naddaf of killing his wife, but then prosecutors agreed to let him plead guilty to manslaughter.

Italy turns away ITALIAN ship from its ports because it had rescued migrants as anti-migrant minister condemns 'do-gooders'

Italy has turned away an Italian ship from its ports because it had rescued migrants - as the country's anti-migrant interior minister blasted 'do-gooders.'

A commercial ship that supplies oil platforms off the coast of Libya pulled 66 migrants to safety on Monday, but it was told not to bring them to Italy, an Interior Ministry source said.

Italy was sticking to a hardline policy on new arrivals as it presses European allies to share the burden of hosting an influx of displaced people.

Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli, who oversees the coast guard and the country's ports, said the migrants had been transferred to an Italian coast guard vessel on Tuesday after some of them threatened the lives of the Italian crew.

They will be brought to Italy, one source said, though the interior ministry source would not confirm.

The commercial ship picked up the migrants though it had been told Libyan patrol boats were coming to retrieve them, the interior ministry source said.

Meanwhile,  Italy's hard-line, anti-migrant interior minister Matteo Salvini challenged the 'do-gooders' who want to open Italy's ports to migrants to visit the San Ferdinando slum in Reggio Calabria.

He vowed to enforce only 'limited, controlled and qualified' immigration as he toured a crime-laden migrant shantytown in the southern Calabria region.

There, he heard of shameless farmers exploiting migrant workers and women being forced into prostitution to get by. Last month, a migrant was killed in San Ferdinando by his former boss.

'The Libyan ports are more than safe and as minister I can guarantee you that the good times are over for the traffickers,' Salvini added during a visit to a camp for migrant fruit and vegetable pickers in the southern region of Calabria.

Salvini has launched a crackdown on migration, closing Italy's ports to aid groups that rescue migrants and vowing to renegotiate the terms of European missions in the Mediterranean to prevent migrants from disembarking in Italy.

The move comes two days before a meeting of European interior ministers in the Austrian city of Innsbruck, where German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer wants his far-right Italian counterpart to agree to take back migrants who arrive at its borders from Italy.

'What is certain is that for Italy there is no plan to take back who has gone abroad. It's the last thing that could happen,' Salvini said in an interview with Il Messaggero newspaper.

'If the Germans and the Austrians are thinking only about sending migrants back to us, helping us close the external borders first would be a step forward,' he said.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's government teetered on the brink of collapse last week as Seehofer's Bavarian conservatives demanded a unilateral tightening of German border controls that she was prepared to concede only in the framework of a European agreement.

Italy's new government, which took office on June 1, has helped thrust immigration back on to the European agenda by closing its ports to humanitarian ships that rescue migrants off the coast of Libya, and it has so far refused to accept migrants sent back from the German border.

Thieves Find Riches in Golden State’s Prop 47

Many Californians had high hopes for Proposition 47, a ballot initiative passed in November 2014 with 60 percent voter approval. The measure reduced penalties for some crimes, including certain drug violations, and helped relieve overcrowding in state prisons.

But while Prop 47 succeeded in meeting those objectives, it also triggered a wave of “smash-and-grab” motor-vehicle burglaries and a surge of retail shopliftings. For this reason, Prop 47 has earned the dishonor of receiving Independent Institute’s fifth California Golden Fleece® Award, recognition given quarterly to state or local government programs or laws that swindle taxpayers or break the public trust.

By raising the monetary threshold for a felony theft to $950 in property value, up from $500 before the measure passed, Prop 47 lowered thieves’ expected cost of criminal violations. Thus, “Prop 47 de-prioritizes justice for California residents and businesses, who are now increasingly victims of vandals and thieves operating with near impunity,” writes Independent Institute Senior Fellow Lawrence J. McQuillan, in his new report, California Property Crime Surge Is Unintended Consequence of Proposition 47.

After delving into the damage caused by Prop 47, the report issues several recommendations. These include lowering the threshold for a felony to property valued at closer to the pre-Prop-47 amount of $500. Also, when sentencing a thief, courts should be allowed to consider the total combined value of all stolen property across multiple incidents. Law enforcement should make property crimes a higher priority, pursuing arrests even for small crimes, so that track records of criminal activity are established.

Ultimately, people will help by reporting more crimes when they gain more confidence that law enforcement is taking the problem more seriously. Residents and businesses should also invest more in security technology and use social media to monitor and discourage criminal activity. “Property crimes produce true victims, McQuillan writes. “Californians deserve a legal system that provides true justice.”

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

When back in September 2016 the Libyan National Army retook control over the export terminals in the country’s Oil Crescent from the Petroleum Facilities Guard and handed it over to the National Oil Corporation, everyone breathed a sigh of relief. After a two-year blockade, the terminals could once again start loading crude and Libya could start recovering its oil industry. Two years later, the LNA is once again in control of the Oil Crescent. But this time it has shared this control with another NOC, and no oil is being loaded at the terminals.…

          Brent disobeyed the president      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Interruptions in supplies in Libya, Venezuela, Canada and Norway, Iran's threats to block the Strait of Hormuz, and some weakness of the US dollar after the release of the US labor market report for June allowed the bulls for Brent and WTI to continue the rally. If oil can update the May highs, the road in the direction of $ 83-85 per barrel will be opened. According to Tehran, the aim of restraining the price of black gold tweets of Donald Trump, in fact, can bring the North Sea grade to the psychologically important mark of $ 100 per barrel. Who is bigger? Sanford C. Bernstein & Co draws attention to the reduction in oil companies' stocks by an average of 30% since the beginning of 2000 and the increase in urban population in Asia by 1 billion over the next two decades. As a result, the demand for cars and gasoline will rise sharply, which will launch a new super cycle on black gold and allow it to grow to $ 150 per barrel.

The US president demands from his military allies (primarily from Saudi Arabia) to increase production to 2 million bpd, knowing full well that the OPEC decisions on the curtailment of the production of "bulls" for Brent and WTI at the end of June cannot be stopped. The states are exerting pressure on buyers of Iranian oil, and if their plan to reduce exports from this Middle Eastern country translates into life, then the market will take 2.5 million bpd. Tehran is the fifth oil producer in the world with a production volume of 3.8 million bpd. The country's leadership claims that it is ready to sell as much black gold as it can.

The support of Brent and WTI is provided by the factor of production reduction in Libya from 1.28 million bpd in February to the current 527 thousand bpd. According to Capital Economics estimates, the market may lose about 2 million bpd from Iran and 1 million bpd from Venezuela, which will widen the deficit and help develop the "bullish" conjuncture of the black gold market.

At first glance, instead of putting pressure on OPEC, Donald Trump could spur the activity of American producers. For a long time, the oil market was living in tug-of-war conditions between those working on reducing the cartel's output and companies from the States that used price increases to hike their own production and simultaneously hedge the risks. They let the number of drilling rigs from Baker Hughes grow (+5 to 863 in the week of July 6), and the Energy Information Administration forecasts an increase in production to a record 11.8 million bpd, no problems with the infrastructure have been canceled. For example, in the Perm basin in 2019 will produce 1 million bpd more than its pipes can afford to pump.

The hand to help the "bulls" for Brent and WTI is fixing profit to the US dollar after the publication of disappointing statistics on US unemployment and the average wage. The first indicator increased from 3.8% to 4%, the second did not reach the forecasts of experts from Bloomberg (+ 0.2% vs. + 0.3% m / m)

Technically, a breakthrough of resistance at $ 79.5 and $ 80.5 per barrel will open the "bulls" along Brent road to the north in the direction of the target for 127.2% and 161.8% for the AB = CD pattern.

          "The Terrible Trio": Why Goldman Thinks "Something's Gotta Give"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Call it "Rodrik's Trilemma" for the Emerging Markets: the combination of higher rates, rising oil prices, and a stronger dollar has historically been a "terrible trio" for EMs according to Goldman's head of FX, Jeff Curries, who writes that as higher funding costs and capital flight to the US force domestic deleveraging, the pressure on EMs tends to be so great that these periods don’t last long: i.e. a short circuit event takes place, usually in the form of a market crash. And, as the subsequent damage lingers, the trio often ushers in weaker EM economic growth.

We bring this up because a "terrible trio" is precisely the environment under which emerging markets currently find themselves in, and as Currie points out, "these trio periods signal one of two events: 1) a mid-cycle pause or 2) an end-of-cycle turning point", i.e. a global recession, usually accompanied by a market crash.

To be sure, conceding that a "terrible trio" environment has brought us to the end of the current cycle would not be prudent for Goldman which still remains resolutely bullish on the global economy and risk assets (just last month Goldman upgraded tech stocks, expecting years of upside for the FANGS).

So what does Goldman expect? Here is Currie with the baseline forecast:

We see several reasons why the current trio likely signifies the former. First, the rates curve is not inverted as it was during previous turning points (and negative term premia now make it somewhat questionable if inversion of the yield curve would even warrant as much concern as in the past). Second, commodities have far more slack (barring a large geopolitically driven supply disruption). And third, the real US dollar trade-weighted index is not nearly as strong as in past trio periods.

Of course, that is the best case outcome in which the "short circuit" emerges without toppling the house of cards.

However, there is also a downside case: should current trends persist, and if higher rates and rising oil and commodity prices are not accompanied by a weaker dollar, the current EM problems will likely intensify warns Currie.

Case in point: The trucker strike in Brazil this year—and the related hit to activity—occurred as oil prices denominated in Brazilian real reached the highest levels on record.

Which brings us to the next topic: The virtuous and vicious cycle of rates, oil, and the dollar. 

Here the Goldman analyst argues that most of the 2000-2010 period was characterized by lower rates, rising commodity prices, and a weaker dollar. In other words, "this was a virtuous cycle."

Rising oil prices weakened the dollar and generated excess savings  that were repatriated into US debt markets. This resulted in lower US yields, which reduced funding costs to EMs. Lower funding costs in turn led to more demand for commodities and commodity price reflation. In all, this virtuous cycle led to the three “Rs”: Reflation, Releveraging and Re-convergence of central bank policy. This dynamic was also on display during late 2017 and early 2018.

However, the danger is that taken too far, this virtuous cycle can, and eventually will reverse into a vicious one of higher rates, declining commodity prices, and a strong dollar, shifting the three “Rs” into the three “Ds”: Deflation, Deleveraging, and Divergence in central bank policy.

This was the case in 2014-2016 when higher funding costs forced EM deleveraging, which reduced commodity demand and reinforced lower commodity prices. In turn, lower prices reduced excess savings and helped strengthen the dollar.

It took the Shanghai Accord of 2016 to halt the vicious cycle when China unleashed on what was at the time a historic standalone releveraging episode, one which promptly provided support for global markets and developed economies.

And now, a little over two years after the Shanghai Accord, it's time for another short circuit as there is one notable constraint on the virtuous cycle: US oil demand. Currie explains:

Today, a virtuous cycle could not run as long as it did in the 2000s because in many EMs, savings now equals investment, so higher commodity prices create more real-world demand and less excess savings. Furthermore, the US no longer runs a
large current account deficit driven by oil. Another key difference is the US appetite for oil. Historically, Chinese demand was the main driver of commodity prices and thus played a major role in these reinforcing cycles. Even during the boom in US shale oil production in 2015, US supply was only a part of the story; Chinese demand for oil and commodities collapsed during that period. Today, US oil demand is growing like Chinese oil demand, consistent with a strong US economy. At the same time, supply disruptions in places like Venezuela, Libya, and now Iran have plagued the oil market, making the rise in oil prices that much less palatable.

So what is needed to reverse the vicious cycle and make into a virtuous again? Goldman believes that one of the three components: rates, dollar or oil, has to snap, or as Currie says, "something's gotta give."

The bottom line is that some part of the trio has to give for EMs to regain solid footing. We agree with our FX strategists that the most likely candidate is the dollar, especially as oil fundamentals remain tight even with the recent OPEC+ announcement of additional oil supplies.

For now however, with the Fed continuing to tighten, this does not appear like a realistic possibility. What about oil?

The Trump administration has tried to talk down oil prices, and also has some tools to push prices lower if these efforts to convince OPEC to further boost production fail. Ultimately, the president could tap the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR), and there is a precedent for doing so to tame oil prices around elections.

And here a warning: "during a past trio period in October 2000, President Clinton turned to the SPR." However, at least in that instance, Democrats still lost the election, and recession ensued. 

As for the most recent period, the financial crisis, some have argued that it was oil's surge to $150 that prompted the global economic collapse that unleashed a deflationary wave upon the world, concurrently with the financial crisis.

In other words, unless the concurrent surge in the dollar, in oil and higher US rates is somehow halted, there is only one possible, if unpleasant, outcome.


          Niger: Niger: Country Operation Update, June 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Source: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Algeria, Cameroon, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan

KEY FIGURES

  • 1,536 Refugees evacuated temporarily from Libya to Niger as part of the ETM (Emergency Transit Mechanism) from November 2017 – June 2018

  • 2,013 Persons profiled by UNHCR in Agadez seeking asylum

  • 17,758 Persons internally displaced in the Tillaberi region

Operational Context

The key situations include:

  1. The Mali situation: began in 2012 with the outbreak of conflict in northern Mail. The regions of Tillaberi and Tahoua bordering Mali and hosting the majority of the refugees are increasingly affected by insecurity and terrorism. A State of Emergency was declared last year, and extended for a further 6 months in February 2018. There are currently 58,035 Malian refugees in Niger. UNHCR aims to support the socio-economic integration of these refugees and the closure of the camps by the end of 2019 through urbanization and other programmes aimed at integration. A regional EU Trust Fund project was recently launched aimed at strengthening the resilience of displaced populations in northern Mali and supporting peaceful coexistence between communities.

  2. The Nigeria situation: began in 2013, with the arrival of the first Nigerian refugees across the border fleeing Boko Haram. The situation deteriorated with the first attacks in Niger territory in 2015. There are over 250,000 displaced persons in the region. The majority live in spontaneous sites or with the local population, while UNHCR manages one refugee camp, with 14,130 people (as of 3 July 2018). Another EU Trust Fund project is ongoing aimed at supporting economic recovery and municipal investments through the construction of durable housing.

  3. Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs): The displaced population in the Diffa region is extremely mixed, including refugees, IDPs and Returnees. Efforts are underway to complete biometric registration of all displaced persons, including IDPs, who are often faced with similar protection risks as refugees. However, the IDP situation in Niger has become more complex with increasing insecurity in the region of Tillaberi, bordering Mali. In 2018, attacks and insecurity in the area have resulted in the internal displacement of at least 17,758 people so far. Protection monitoring, advocacy, capacity building sessions and coordinated efforts with humanitarian actors are ongoing to ensure close follow up on the situation.

  4. Mixed Migration: Niger is a major crossroads of migratory movements northwards towards Libya,
    Algeria and the Mediterranean. These migratory flows constitute mixed migration, including economic migrants as well as persons in need of international protection. In Agadez, UNHCR works to identify asylum seekers within the migratory flows and works with the government, as well as IOM and NGOs to provide these persons with information and assistance. 2,013 persons, mostly Sudanese, are currently profiled by UNHCR in Agadez. 24% of them are minors and 202 are unaccompanied or separated children. The situation has become more complex in the last months, with the addition of downward movements from Libya and Algeria.

  5. Emergency Transit Mechanism (ETM): This unique programme aims to provide life-saving protection, assistance and long-term solutions to extremely vulnerable refugees trapped in detention in Libya, through temporary evacuation to Niger. The aim is to deliver protection and identify durable solutions, including resettlement for these refugees, who are mainly Eritrean, Somalian, Ethiopian, and Sudanese. Their profiles mainly include survivors of torture or other forms of violence in the country of origin and/or transit countries (e.g. Libya) and others with compelling protection needs. Many of them are unaccompanied children (approximately 260) and women and girls at risk. To date, 1,536 people have been evacuated from Libya to Niger and a total of 203 individuals have departed for resettlement from Niger to France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland. Other countries offering resettlement places are Germany, the UK, Finland, Canada,
    Belgium, Malta, Norway and the USA.

SECURITY COUNCIL

8307TH MEETING (AM)

Note: A complete summary of today's Security Council meeting will be made available after its conclusion.

Briefings

AMINA MOHAMMED, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, declared: “It is clear that climate change is a real threat and is proceeding at a relentless pace.” The years 2015, 2016 and 2017 were the three warmest years on record, carbon dioxide levels continue to rise and resulting droughts, wildfires, heat waves and floods are being witnessed around the world. While no country will be spared from those effects, they disproportionately impact socially vulnerable and marginalized groups. “We must act together, with a joint vision and a commitment to multilateral cooperation,” she said, stressing that the impacts of climate change will go beyond the strictly environmental and “is inextricably linked to some of the most pressing challenges of our time”. Fragile countries are at risk of becoming stuck in a cycle of conflict and climate disaster; where resilience is eroded, communities may be displaced and exposed to exploitation. Citing the drastic shrinking of Lake Chad — by more than 90 per cent since the 1960s — she said the resulting environmental degradation, socioeconomic marginalization and insecurity affects some 45 million people.

Recalling that she had grown up in that region, she emphasized that she had seen the impact of climate change with her own eyes — “it is real”. Meanwhile, the Boko Haram insurgency in north-east Nigeria and neighbouring countries has left more than 10 million people displaced and resulted in massive destruction of infrastructure, health and educational facilities, commercial buildings, private houses and agricultural assets. The multidimensional nature of those crises underlined the complex relationship between climate change and conflict, she said, urging Council members to view climate change as “one issue in a web of factors that can lead to conflict”. It acts as a multiplier, applying additional stress on prevailing political, social and economic pressure points. Acting on climate change is urgent, and an integral part of building a culture of prevention and ensuring peace, she said. Outlining various ways the United Nations is currently tackling the risks posed by climate change — in particular in the Lake Chad Basin, West Africa, the Sahel region and the Horn of Africa — she said the Organization takes seriously its responsibilities and stands determined to fully mobilize against the phenomenon.

In that vein, she cited the Secretary-General’s forthcoming report in conjunction with the United Nations Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS), which will report on recent developments including the climate-security nexus in the region. The recalibrated United Nations integrated strategy for the Sahel is also taking a climate-oriented focus, prioritizing building resilience, improving the management of natural resources and decreasing malnutrition and food insecurity. At the international level, the United Nations helped to connect efforts to combat climate change and ensure that its related frameworks are linked up and complement one another. In September, the Secretary-General will convene a climate summit to galvanize greater climate ambition for the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. Going forward, she said, the world also needed to push towards getting its greenhouse‑gas emissions under control — namely, well below the 2°C target — and to pursue the 1.5°C target as agreed in the Paris Agreement. Further work must place women at the heart of such efforts, as they remain disproportionately affected by climate change, and the United Nations should work to build institutional capacity and foster partnerships in impacted regions.

HASSAN AL-JANABI, Minister for Water Resources of Iraq, said the debate is a step forward regarding international responses to new challenges, as climate change has a negative impact on the pillars of peace. Rising temperatures exacerbate other threats and risks, increasing their complexity and intensity while making it impossible for countries to implement the Sustainable Development Goals amid growing numbers of displaced persons and migrants desperately looking to improve their lives. Major river basins in Iraq and the rest of the region are subject to the greatest ever threat, resulting from climate change, as well as competition for shared water resources.

He said the absence of implementable bilateral and multilateral agreements or regional frameworks for the equitable use of shared water is contributing to potential conflicts that could and should be avoided. The combined effect of climate change consequences, including a reported 25 per cent decline in rainfall and snowfall, and the operational modes of large dams that reduced the rate of inflows by 50 per cent in the Euphrates River since 1998 has triggered desertification, shrinking green cover and rising temperatures while reducing land productivity. This is true for the whole region, as climate change and water depletion are destroying soil fertility and causing food insecurity.

The international community must intervene to enhance resilience and stability in fragile areas, he said. In taking proactive and preventive actions, the global community can avoid humanitarian tragedies, typically most heavily felt by women, children and vulnerable groups. Many of the measures required may be legally binding on member States of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification or the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and compatible with commitments to the Sustainable Development Goals. Providing an example, he said excessive water use and the diversion of ancient rivers are among factors that led to the environmentally deteriorating Iraqi delta of the Shatt al-Arab waterway. Efforts to revive marshlands at the confluence of the great rivers in Mesopotamia have returned life and the native population to the area after decades, leading the area to be enlisted in 2016 as a World Heritage Site. In the face of current water scarcity, the Site could only be saved if effective and cooperative regional approaches are implemented and Member States’ obligations to relevant conventions are met.

Turning to other threats, he said Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Da’esh) has wreaked havoc on the population and the land and its resources. An approach to the phenomenon of terrorism requires a coordinated, international and regional approach to extinguish hotspots threating peace and security, with Goal 13 on climate change being beneficial to the region. Iraq fully supports diplomatic means to solve water scarcity issues, including through “water diplomacy” and similar initiatives intending to maintain the security of the planet with a view to creating an environment of trust and cooperation.

HINDOU IBRAHIM, International Indigenous Peoples Forum on Climate Change, said that the Security Council must address climate change as a security risk. Climate change is humiliating millions of people by trapping the poorest in poverty. In the Sahel, 90 per cent of the economy relies on agriculture and pastoralism. A heat wave and drought has the potential to immediately hurt the economy and the people, she added. At the regional level, climate change contributes to reinforcing terrorist groups as they take advantage of poverty to recruit the youngest and most fragile. Climate change also creates insecurity at the international level. Take a man in the Sahel, for example, she said. He must take care of his family, feed them and pay for his children’s education. He has two choices: either he can join a terrorist group, that can pay him with money coming from illegal activities, or he can try to cross the Mediterranean Sea to find a job in Europe.

Even in the smallest nomadic community you can find a bottle of Coca Cola, but you cannot find electricity or a radio, she said. “Why give them things that are useless, but not things that can help them and keep them in peace,” she asked. Invest in the local development, she urged the international community, stressing also the need to directly invest in local people and their well-being. Development projects are often limited to big cities, ignoring the people living far from town. She urged the international community to give hope to the young in the Sahel. “They do not have a choice but you do have a choice,” she stressed, adding: “You must give them something beyond hope, because they do not deserve to just survive, they deserve a life.”

Statements

MARGOT WALLSTRÖM, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Sweden and Council President for July, spoke in her national capacity, noting that, during her recent visit to the Sahel region, she met with people dealing first hand with the everyday consequences that a changing climate was having on peace and security. Migrants and refugees are displaced by droughts and floods and traditional livelihoods, such as fishing and farming have evaporated, giving rise to tensions.

“The link between climate and security continues to be a priority for Sweden in this Council,” she said, calling on the organ to “catch up with the changing reality on the ground”. It has been seven years since the Council last debated climate and security, and it is far past time to further discuss how climate change interacts with the drivers of conflict. In that regard, she stressed that the Council first needs to better understand climate-related security risks themselves; it must develop improved tools and reporting on the issue; it should support the establishment of an institutional home for climate and security‑related issues within the United Nations system; and it must frame its response based on the efforts of countries on the front line, learning from their experiences and good practices.

EUGENE RHUGGENAATH, Prime Minister of Curaçao, speaking on behalf of the Netherlands, said that, where climate change threatens international security, the Council has a responsibility to act, pressing delegates to imagine if, 15 years ago, they could have foreseen the millions of people in the Lake Chad region needing relief from water stress, or those in Somalia displaced by severe drought. By responding in a timely manner to warning signs of climate-related security risks “we can adequately address root causes, prevent instability and conflict, and sustain peace”, he said. The Council must ensure action by the United Nations, both in New York and in the affected countries, notably through greater analytic capability, needed for risk assessments, conflict analysis and early warning. It also should encourage conflict- and climate-sensitive prevention and development efforts, as well as encourage the Secretary-General to include climate‑related risks in his reports to the Council, when appropriate. Institutionalized cooperation, properly coordinated across the Organization, was also vital.

YERZHAN ASHIKBAYEV, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan, said climate change is becoming a central theme throughout the world community. It poses a risk as a “threat multiplier”. Calling for “climate diplomacy” to become a part of the United Nations overall conflict prevention efforts, he said it should also be treated as an underpinning concept in sustaining peace — not an end process, but one which ran parallel to prevention, resolution, recovery and rehabilitation. He also called for better climate-related security risk assessments and management strategies, stronger international cooperation, more joint projects to build the capacity of developing countries and investments in new diversified economies. Kazakhstan, for its part, has taken voluntary action to cut its use of fossil fuels by 2030 and replace it with renewable energy by 2050.

KAREN PIERCE (United Kingdom) said the nexus between climate and security “is not an abstract risk” but one that already threatens lives and livelihoods around the world. The shocking estimate that 720 million people are at risk of being pushed into poverty by 2050 by climate change could also mean reversing the major gains of recent years. “We are working against ourselves if we don’t take action against this,” she stressed, noting that the United Kingdom is committed to championing efforts to build greater resilience to climate change in collaboration with a range of actors. It has also committed $7.7 billion in international climate finance, and is among the first countries to carry out a national climate risk assessment.

GUSTAVO MEZA-CUADRA (Peru) underscored the vital importance of understanding the humanitarian crises and conflicts sparked in part by climate change, as well as the threats they pose to international peace and security. The Council must strengthen and harmonize its coordination with those United Nations bodies and agencies charged with addressing the impacts of climate change while fully respecting the mandates of those offices. Spotlighting Peru’s particular vulnerability to the impacts of climate change, he said the retreat of High Andes tropical glaciers has led to floods and other serious challenges. The Council must better shape its decisions, on a case-by-case basis, informed by a stronger understanding of such evolving, modern challenges as climate change. In that vein, he asked the Council to consider a correct assessment of climate risks — as well as the tools required to mitigate them — and to collaborate more closely with a wider range of partners.

JONATHAN R. COHEN (United States) said the Council should consider phenomena such as natural disasters — as well as others that impacted populations and caused widespread displacement — in its work. “In response to these crises, we are all on the same side,” he said, noting that the United States currently applied innovative solutions to assist countries around the globe. In that regard, he described projects aimed at restoring access to water and electricity to Iraqi communities formerly under the control of ISIL/Da’esh, adding that it had contributed $265 million to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Funding Facility for Immediate Stabilization in Iraq since 2015. Outlining a range of other joint projects — including alongside the Governments of the Netherlands and Sweden — he said the United States is also listening carefully to developments in the Lake Chad Basin region and recognized the special challenges faced by small island developing States.

FRANÇOIS DELATTRE (France) said that not a day goes by without someone falling victim to the adverse effects to climate change, whether it be drought, salinization or other threats. “We cannot turn a blind eye to the situation,” he said, urging the international community to tackle this existential challenge. “Each lost day heightens the magnitude of the threat,” he warned. The fact that Council Members are here discussing climate change in no way undermines the Paris Agreement and other multilateral frameworks on climate change. Each country must establish ambitious climate policies. This way, the international community will be positioned to keep the average global temperature in check. The international community must decide to cooperate to tackle the impacts of climate change. It is time to craft recommendations and measures that will be implemented by Governments worldwide to address the adverse impacts of climate change and protect and restore biodiversity.

DMITRY A. POLYANSKIY (Russian Federation) said today’s Council meeting is disappointing and not because his country objects to collective efforts to address climate change. The meeting is another attempt to link the issue of environmental conservation to international peace and security. “We are creating an illusion that the Council will tackle climate issues and that there will be some kind of turning point,” he added, stressing that this is simply a “misguidance”. Climate change is a grave threat, however, the Council does not have the expertise or the mechanisms to effectively counter its effects. Climate change is not a universal challenge to be addressed as a matter of international peace and security. It should be addressed within national borders and with specialized approaches and solutions. Each United Nations agency and department must operate within its area of responsibility. Some say climate change is a threat multiplier, yet fail to acknowledge the adverse consequences of violent military operations and unilateral sanctions, as evident from experiences in Yugoslavia, Libya and Syria. No one today has mentioned the great damage caused by bombings or the subsequent health hazards caused to the people living there. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) bombing of Yugoslavia caused a spike in cancer among people living in the affected area. In Libya, the bombing of oil fields led to significant damage to the atmosphere, he said, also noting the adverse effects of the intervention in Syria and the fighting in Donetsk, Ukraine. The Russian Federation stood ready to and is already contributing to efforts to combat climate change. However, today’s discussion is a departure from practical action.

VERÓNICA CORDOVA SORIA (Bolivia) said developing countries continue to bear the brunt of the effects of climate change. Between 2000 and 2013, 211 million people were affected by extreme and catastrophic disasters. Some of the most industrial countries are shirking their responsibilities, she said, stressing the need to address the capitalist and excessive consumption models. Climate change represents an existential threat, loss of biodiversity and a loss of food security. The shortage of natural resources can further flame tensions. The adverse impact of climate change brings in its wake a range of direct and indirect consequences, violating many basic human rights. “We need to pursue a cooperative and coordinated approach,” she added, expressing concern that large military empires have destroyed entire civilizations to seize oil and other resources. The inequality between States is immoral and intolerable, she added.

TEKEDA ALEMU (Ethiopia) called on Council members to draw lessons from today’s meeting, especially regarding the need to “not be partial” on such critical issues as climate change. He called for concerted global action and described the 2015 adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as “multilateralism at its best”. In some circumstances, climate change could create conditions leading to conflict or exacerbate it, he said, spotlighting the high risk of cross-border conflicts or tensions around natural resources. However, it is important to note that climate-related environmental changes do not automatically result in conflict. In that regard, he called for enhanced efforts to address the root causes of such climate-induced problems as mass migration and displacement. Such global accords as the Paris Agreement are prerequisites in that regard, he said, noting that developed countries should fulfil their commitments under those agreements, assisting developing nations to meet their climate change mitigation needs.

MA ZHAOXU (China) said the international community should work together to address climate change by “actively rising up to existing challenges”. That means providing assistance to developing countries, including through technology transfer. Meanwhile, States must uphold the international principles of equality and justice, respect global climate-related agreements, reject “zero-sum mentalities” and promote win-win outcomes. The international community should implement the Paris Agreement while also adhering to the principle of common but differentiated responsibility and respecting differences in the circumstances of States. Calling on the global community to build a new concept of common, comprehensive security and sustainable development, he said China has long participated in global action on climate change, including in the context of South-South cooperation, and remains committed to assisting other countries going forward.

ILAHIRI ALCIDE DJEDJE (Côte d’Ivoire), noting that the impact of climate change could create fertile ground for the activities of extremist groups, he said the Lake Chad Basin and Sahel regions symbolize the environmental challenges being faced across the entire African continent. Against that backdrop, United Nations bodies should “go beyond usual divisions” in an effort to reverse the arc of climate change, he stressed, calling on the Council to effectivity analyse the root causes of climate-related conflicts and take action to address them. Describing a large and alarming depletion in Côte d’Ivoire’s forest cover, as well as instances of drought and water scarcity, he said such challenges could compound demographic shifts, displacement and food insecurity. This is especially true where Boko Haram and other criminal networks have taken root, he said, associating himself with the outcomes of a recent African Union Peace and Security Council public debate on the nexus between climate change and conflict. Those include calls for more support for African nations struggling with those issues, as well as more action at the subregional level, he said.

ANATOLIO NDONG MBA (Equatorial Guinea) said international peace and security are threatened by many factors. Climate change exacerbates existing risks and has a direct impact at the core of human life. It shrinks the availability of resources, flaming conflict and tensions. Climate‑related issues should be mainstreamed in all reports submitted to the Council. This would help Member States tackle its adverse effects. He urged the need to improve the analysis and information available on climate change to help the United Nations make informed decisions.

MARIUSZ LEWICKI (Poland) said the Security Council is instrumental to enhancing United Nations response towards conflicts, in particular in the context of conflict prevention in regions affected by adverse effects of climate change, such as the Lake Chad Basin, West Africa, the Sahel and Somalia. The Council should also underline the need for better climate-related security risk assessment and management strategies. “We cannot overestimate the critical role of reliable data about climate‑change‑related risks which is key to avoid conflicts, build resilience and prevent natural disasters,” he said. Regular discussions on climate change and security in the Council could complement other deliberations being carried out throughout the United Nations.

U.S. oil prices dropped back toward $70 a barrel on Wednesday, losing 5% to finish at their lowest in over two weeks. The Energy Information Administration reported that U.S. crude supplies sank 12.6 million barrels last week. The news, however, failed to offset pressure from expectations that Libya will soon resume oil exports and concerns surrounding the economic impact of worsening U.S.-China trade tensions and a stronger dollar. August West Texas Intermediate crude dropped $3.73, or 5%, to settle at $70.38 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange, the lowest finish since June 25, according to FactSet data.

          Trump has access to a little-used tool that could lower oil prices      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Trump end the iran deal

  • President Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed concerns about energy costs.
  • Rising gas prices could create a political headache for Republicans ahead of the midterm election.
  • Some analysts think Trump could turn to an emergency US oil reserve.

"REDUCE PRICING NOW!"

That was President Donald Trump's message to OPEC last week, adding that "gas prices are up & they are doing little to help." 

It was just the latest in a string of tweets taking aim at the oil cartel about energy costs. And ahead of the midterm election, where rising gas prices could hurt his party, the outbursts have raised questions about whether the president might turn to tapping a federal oil stockpile called the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

"We think that WTI would not have to advance much further before the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) is brought into play,” Standard Chartered analysts wrote in a recent note.

The SPR, created following the 1970's energy crisis, is mainly intended to be an emergency stockpile the US can turn to during war or natural disaster. But non-emergency releases can be authorized to respond to minor supply disruptions or to raise federal revenue, according to the US Energy Department.

Screen Shot 2018 07 11 at 1.14.35 PM

Under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, the president can decide whether an SPR release is justifiable by a potential energy supply shortage "of significant scope or duration." While price level itself would likely not qualify under that standard, according to UBS analyst Jon Rigby, mounting supply outages could.

"With Venezuela and Iran already subject to sanctions and US onshore production and exports now limited by infrastructure, one of the US's most significant remaining market levers is its Strategic Petroleum Reserve," Rigby said. 

But concerns over global supplies are clear and growing. Crude has rallied in recent months, with the US benchmark trading above $73 a barrel and prices at the gas pump hitting four-year highs. 

Political and economic turmoil that's been weighing on output from key producers, including Venezuela and Libya, shows no sign of letting up. And an oil-worker strike in Norway and a major outage in Canada are expected to take barrels off the market over the next few months. 

Perhaps most important, the State Department last month ordered most countries to cut off oil imports from Iran by November. The move is part of Trump's decision earlier this year to withdraw the US from the Iran deal, which lifted sanctions on the country in exchange for restraints on its nuclear weapons program.

The Trump administration has looked to Saudi Arabia to help make up for falling output. The unofficial OPEC leader said it has a spare capacity of 2 million barrels a day, according to Trump, implying production of about 12 million barrels per day.

But some analysts question how practical that would be. Saudi Arabia has never pumped more than 10.6 million barrels per day on average over a single month, according to analysts at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

"It appears the oil market has little confidence that Iran volumes can be easily replaced," BAML said.

While that could create a political headache for Republicans in November, it isn't clear if Trump would consider an SPR release. The White House did not respond to an email requesting comment.

Rigby said an SPR release would initially lower prices. But he added that — like raising Saudi Arabia's production — it could have the opposite effect in the long-run. 

"We think it would highlight the structural tightness of the market and the lack of options available to deal with it," he added.

Oil Falls After Libyan Ports Reopen

From Reuters

Global oil benchmark Brent fell more than $2 a barrel on Wednesday after U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to levy new tariffs on China and Libya announced the reopening of key oil export terminals.

The specter of tariffs on a further $200 billion of Chinese goods sent commodities lower along with stock markets, as tension between the world’s biggest economies intensified.

          What's the message?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

  • The New York Times and Washington Post are leading the charge to dynamite the Trump-Kim talks.  The Democrats carry the rally flag for the military industrial complex.  The party that presumes to speak for the left (and even peace people) is working hard to ensure we keep a stable full of enemies that can continuously be trotted out to frighten the public.  And the more frightened people get the more money they will allow the corporations to steal to prepare for war.
  • The US is not worried about the military capability of North Korea.  It is being used as a foil to justify expanding Pentagon operations in the Asia-Pacific region to encircle China and Russia. 
  • I know a Korean woman who lives in Canada and is a professor there.  She wrote that the western media translation of North Korea saying Secretary of State Pompeo recently treated them like 'gangsters' actually translated to 'forceful'.  The day after reading this I was on a radio interview talking about Korea. The show host asked me about North Korea saying Pompeo treated them like a 'gangster'.  I explained that the word was mistranslated for a reason.  The media's job is to frame the reality the corporate masters want to project to the 'citizens'.  Trump recently acknowledged this when he responded to a question about Korea.  He said, "It's all a show."  He's taken his act to the global stage and he loves it.  Despite the Democrats complaints about Trump he is faithfully serving the interests of Wall Street - and he helps keep the people divided against one another at home.
  • Watching Trump on his current European tour continues to reveal that the man has no core values except making money and self-promotion.  The world gets to see the real face of America - these are the values that we've been taught here in this capitalist society - $$$$ comes first, everyone and everything else around you should be subordinated in order for you to make even more $$$$.  It's a sickness and most of us have some level of contamination inside us.
  • Trump is calling out Germany for buying fossil fuels from Russia.  The US oil companies want Europe to buy more expensive fuels from them. (Imagine the cost of shipping fracked gas from America to Berlin.)  In addition is the fervent wish of these oil barons to force regime change in Moscow.  They want to break Russia up into constituent pieces just like the US-NATO did to Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya and tried to do in Syria.   Those that border the Arctic Ocean are going to have prime access to vast supplies of fossil fuels as the ice melts due to climate change.  Check out a map - it's amazing how long Russia's Arctic border is.  This is also why Putin is being demonized. 
  • I've been working on getting caught up with all my administrative tasks before my surgery next Monday.  I've asked that people send me healing thoughts at noon.  I will likely be in the hospital 2-3 days and then home.  A half-dozen friends have recently had similar knee surgery and have given me much appreciated advice - mostly about staying committed to the exercises that are required to regain mobility.  I'm ready to go.

          Russia moving into Libya      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

U.S. intelligence agencies are closely monitoring Russian military activities in Libya for signs that Moscow may soon build a military base in the divided North African state.

Intelligence reports indicate that Russia is planning to expand its Syrian bases at Tartus and Hemeimeem to Libya.

          Libyan NOC announces reopening of key oil export terminals      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Libya's Tripoli-based National Oil Corp (NOC) said on Wednesday that four export terminals were being reopened after eastern factions handed over the ports, ending a standoff that had shut down most of the country's oil output. Production and export operations would be restored "within the next few hours", an NOC statement said, though the restart at Es Sider and Ras Lanuf, where workers were evacuated and storage tanks damaged in fighting last month, was expected to be gradual.

          Russian Defense Minister speaks about war with Ukraine, US and fight for Crimea      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu excludes a possibility of a direct military confrontation between Russia and Ukraine both now and in the future.In an interview with Italian publication Il Giornale, Sergei Shoigu said that the peoples of Russia and Ukraine share common roots and experiences of hard trials, such as the Great Patriotic War, when Russians and Ukrainians were defending their homeland, the Soviet Union, shoulder to shoulder. Sergei Shoigu also spoke about the relations between Russia and the United States. He said that it was US elites that started aggravating the relationship with Russia artificially. According to the minister, US elites are convinced that the world is divided into "the American and the wrong" one. Shoigu reminded that it was the American side that unilaterally terminated a few key agreements that formed the basis of global security."Contrary to promises given to the Soviet administration during the unification of Germany, Washington initiated NATO's eastward expansion to Russian borders. For more than 25 years, they have been fooling us by saying that there were no promises made at all, until the NSA declassified archives from that period where all was described in detail and in persons," Shoigu said.In 2002, he said, under the pretext of the fabricated missile danger on the part of Iran or North Korea, the United States unilaterally pulled out from the ABM Treaty. Afterwards, the USA proceeded to deploy its radar stations and interceptor missiles alongside Russia's borders.Shoigu admitted that he would very much like to give a globe to his American colleagues so that they could explain it to him why all of America's "adversaries are in the Middle and in the Far East, but all American army bases and groups are huddling to the borders of Russia." "Are we supposed to defend them or what?" Shoigu asked. In the interview with Italian journalists, the Russian Defense Minister also told of the plans of the West to arrange a "hybrid war" in the Crimea. The United States used the hybrid war technology in Iraq in 1991, as well as in the former Yugoslavia, Libya and Syria, Shoigu said. When the West failed to destabilize the situation on the Crimean Peninsula, Western media started accusing Russia of using the hybrid war.Shoigu paid journalists' attention to traces of the "hybrid war" in Ukraine, on the eve of the armed mutiny in February of 2014, when, in his opinion, European countries took passive part in those "hybrid actions" as well. 
          'Unthinkable' to close ports to Italian rescue ships, says Italian Deputy PM      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Rome, July 11 (IANS/AKI) It is "unthinkable" to bar Italian ships from national ports, Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio said Wednesday in an apparent attack on hardline Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for refusing to allow an Italian vessel to dock in Italy after it rescued 67 migrants off Libya at the weekend.

"If it is an Italian ship that intervened in circumstances that need to be clarified, we are compelled to allow it to dock," he told TV channel La7's Omnibus programme.

"Italy's ports are only closed to charity rescue ships that don't respect the rules," said Di Maio, who is also the Welfare and Industry Minister and leads the Five-Star Movement - the biggest party in parliament.

The 67 migrants were due on Wednesday to disembark at an as-yet unspecified Italian port after they were transferred to an Italian coastguard vessel, the Diciotto, from the commercial ship Vos Thalassa that rescued them on Sunday.

The Italian-flagged Vos Thalassa responded to a distress call from a boat adrift off the Libyan coast and picked up the migrants after arriving on the scene before the Libyan coastguard, who are responsible for rescues in Libyan coastal waters.

"It is unthinkable to bar an Italian ship although I too share am concerned about what is happening in the Mediterranean," Di Maio said.

          Growing Arms Purchases by Arab Countries Challenge Israel       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
(Institute for National Security Studies-Tel Aviv University) Yahel Arnon and Yoel Guzansky - Growing conventional arms purchases by Arab countries represent a challenge for Israel. Advanced platforms reaching the Gulf states, in some cases, are more advanced than those possessed by Israel. Security cooperation between Israel and the Gulf states as well as with Egypt and Jordan is growing, and Israel has no wish to damage this. However, there is ongoing concern linked to the chronic instability of Middle East regimes. It is impossible to completely rule out a situation where the stability in one of the countries is undermined and its weapon systems fall into the wrong hands, as happened in the case of Libya, Yemen, Syria, and Iraq. The possibility that the weapons they are now acquiring will be turned on Israel at some time in the future, even if not by them, cannot be ignored. Israel must insist that the IDF's qualitative military edge will be guaranteed, even vis-a-vis regimes that are, for the moment, friendly. Yahel Arnon is a senior figure within Israel's intelligence community. Dr. Yoel Guzansky is a senior researcher at INSS.

          Russia will always counter US 'neocolonialist strategy,' defense minister vows      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Russia will always counter the US neocolonialist strategy aimed at weakening legitimate governments in other countries, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said in an interview with the Italian daily Il Giornale published on Wednesday. "The issue at hand is the neocolonialist strategy, which the US has already tested in Iraq and Libya and which boils down to supporting any, even the wildest ideologies to weaken legitimate governments," the minister said. According to Shoigu, Russia, "which advocates equal and mutually beneficial cooperation with any countries as part of the multipolar world concept, will always be an obstacle to the implementation of such strategies." The minister explained that the key stages of the neocolonialist strategy are weakening the legitimate leadership, staging the use of weapons of mass destruction or humanitarian disasters and the use of military force to create "controlled chaos." All that, he said, creates favorable conditions for draining countries of their wealth to the US economy by transnational corporations. "Russia has been regaining its strength so it is now considered to be not an ally but a threat to the United States’ global dominance," he said. At the same time, in Shoigu’s words, the West "continues its military build-up near our borders" while accusing Moscow of making aggressive plans. In this regard, the Russian defense minister pointed out that NATO had increased the number of troops deployed to the Baltic states, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria from 2,000 to 15,000, with the possibility of a further increase to 60,000. Shoigu also mentioned a statement by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg made on Tuesday that by 2020, the alliance planned to have "30 mechanized battalions, 30 air squadrons and 30 combat vessels ready to use within 30 days or less." "All this is happening right near Russia’s western borders," Shoigu stressed.


          Crude oil benchmark Brent sees biggest one-day fall in two years      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Global benchmark Brent crude oil had its biggest one-day drop in two years on Wednesday as escalating U.S.-China trade tensions threatened to hurt oil demand, and news that Libya would reopen its ports raised expectations of growing supply.
