Ambrose Evans-Pritchard: Why I am voting to leave the EU

by John Galt June 12, 2016 20:10 ET In what can only be called a stunning editorial in tonight’s edition of the UK Telegraph, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard hammers it home with a stunning rebuke of the pro-European Union forces inside the United Kingdom with this editorial: Brexit vote is about the supremacy of Parliament and nothing else: Why I am voting to leave the EU Holy smokes! This is somewhat earth shattering as the conventional economic thought inside England was to remain and muddle through with a partnership both with France and…


Market Trouble Ahead as the Bellwethers Break

by John Galt June 12, 2016 19:40 ET I’m going to keep this short, simple, but loaded with graphs so everyone can see what happened last week to the 2 bellwether stocks in the equities markets, Apple, Inc. and Goldman Sachs. Why I have tagged those two issues is irrelevant; I just advise everyone to remember 2007-2009 when General Motors and IBM were the bellwethers and what happened to the markets after they broke down.

These highlights from the release along with the chart from ForexLive tells the tale of woe: +6.0% prev Yuan…

Sunday, during the Lujiazui Forum in Shanghai, that theory was turned on its head. From the South China…


The War That isn’t Reported Continues: 9 Ukrainian Soldiers Killed, 19 Wounded on Friday

by John Galt June 12, 2016 16:35 ET The war that is not going to be reported in the Western media continues with casualties and destruction on both sides becoming quite commonplace as artillery exchanges and small arms fire intensifies. The story below demonstrates that the OSCE oversight of the Minsk Agreements is nothing more than a figurehead joke designed to support a pro-NATO/EU version of events ignoring the plight of citizens near the front lines in the Donbass region. From DNI News on Saturday: 9 Ukrainian security officers killed, 19…
