Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia Give Up Sovereignty by Signing with EU

Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia Give Up Sovereignty by Signing with EU


By signing association agreements with the EU on Friday, Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia have delivered a crucial blow to their social and economic sectors, says Russian State Duma Deputy Chairman Sergei Zheleznyak.

The agreement effectively deprives the countries that signed it of their national sovereignty and could aggravate the internal political and socioeconomic conflicts in them, Zheleznyak told journalists.

"But this is a choice of each of the countries that signed the agreement, and the leaderships of these countries will bear responsibility to their peoples for the consequences of these actions," he said.

Obama's Multimillion Aid to Syrian Rebels Might Fall into Terrorists Hands


WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is asking Congress for $500 million in aid to give to moderate Syrian rebels. The White House says the money would go toward stabilizing areas under opposition control, facilitate the provision of essential services and promote conditions for a negotiated settlement.

Claude Salhani, senior editor of Trend News Agency in Azerbaijan, asks, "Who are the good guys, who are the bad guys?" How the U.S. will differentiate between extremists and moderates will be a hefty task. "The U.S. is going to have put together some fancy tricks to try and figure out who these moderates are, and how do we go about arming them and training them and supplying them. It's not an easy answer."

Donetsk Peoples Republic intends to leave Ukraine

Self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic intends to leave Ukraine's jurisdiction and integrate with Customs Union to avoid economic fallout from Ukraine's association agreement with the EU, Donetsk Republic's deputy prime minister Andrei Purgin said.

Possibly, from the side of the Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Community [reaction] will not be head on, but more pin-pointed. In any case, losses in trade with Customs Unions will be upwards from 50 percent," Purgin said.

Argentina Deposits Debt Payment, But U.S. Court Blocks Payout

Argentina Deposits Debt Payment, But U.S. Court Blocks Payout


Argentina has deposited the next payment needed to avoid a default on its restructured bonds, but a U.S. federal court decided on Thursday not to let the payment go through.

Both actions increased the stakes in a 12-year legal chess game between Argentina and creditors who refused to accept the downgraded terms offered by the country's 2005 and 2010 debt restructurings and are suing for full repayment.

Argentina will have the month of July to negotiate with its holdout creditors before falling into technical default. The next payment is due on Monday, but with that payment blocked by the courts, Buenos Aires will have a 30-day grace period to strike a deal with the holdouts.

Asia Shares Decline Following Hawkish Fed Comments

Asia Shares Decline Following Hawkish Fed Comments


Asian equity markets declined on Friday following hawkish comments from a Federal Reserve official.

Speaking in a televised interview in the U.S. overnight, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard suggested interest rates could rise sooner rather than later, leading Wall Street shares to end in the red overnight.

"Given Janet Yellen's last comments highlighted 'noise' in the inflation reading, these comments [from Bullard] have some significance. In fact, most of the Fed comments this week have been quite hawkish and perhaps this resulted in the subdued performance in equities," said Stan Shamu, market strategist at IG in a note.

Also weighing on sentiment was data showing that U.S. consumer spending rose less than expected in May, which led many economists to pare back growth forecasts for the second quarter.

The New York Attorney General's office announced Wednesday that it is suing Barclays BCS over a lack of transparency in its "dark pools."

FACT: Black Men Never Hire Lawyers Survey Says

FACT: Black Men Never Hire Lawyers Survey Says

Oh, you've seen talk shows, read books, seen speeches given talking about how judges sentence Black men 3 times longer than white men, or convict Black men 50% more than white men. Yes, all of that is true, and that is why 28% of the prison population is Black men, although Black men only make up 7% of the US population.

But that's not the CAUSE of why Black men are in jail in such high numbers, and don't be so naive to think that Black men are MORE criminal, than any other group of men. For those of you frothing at the mouth, saying that Black men are criminals, think about this. The US penal system IS INCAPABLE OF INCARCERATING ALL CRIMINALS. Let's go even a step further. The US penal system IS INCAPABLE OF INCARCERATING THE CRIMINALS THEY ACTUALLY COME ACROSS. They don't have enough room for the ones that they come across.

Yes, that means the a staggering majority of "criminals" go scott free.

Now, MAYBE, you're waking up to what a complete GAME the US penal system is. Literally it is up to chance whether you:

Black Community Has Poor Self Image of Business

Black Community Has Poor Self Image of Business

Time and again Black businessmen have come up with a plan to really revolutionize the Black community, get everyone together, change the thinking from one of self-destruction to one of group economics. Time and again it fails. Why?

What these businessmen don't understand that, no matter how good it looks on paper, no matter how well placed the businesses, no matter how easily accessed the businesses are and the hiring of local help, it NEVER takes into account the complete sociopathic psychological damage that is the African American / Black community.

One has only to look at the evidence:

Did Jesus Really Exist?

Did Jesus Really Exist?


It has been proven over and over, that there was NOT person on the planet named Jesus of Nazareth. People get confused by this, because they think the Christian holy book, is a scientific historical document. It is not. In fact, nearly all of the cities, towns, people, kings and dates didn't exist. The shroud of toren has also been proven OVER AND OVER to be fake.

The entire catholic religion is completely and utterly a hoax. But, they are the richest and most powerful religion on the planet, and they will not give up that power, nor that money. All Christian faiths come from the Roman Catholic religion.

Here is a historical account of how the Roman Catholic church came about.

For Blacks: Stop Listening to Black Sellouts

Stop Listening to Black Sellouts


When you call someone a sellout, the listener normally closes his ears and runs screaming, because in this politically correct world, making someone responsible for their words and actions is actually frowned upon. I want you to put on your big boy pants. I want you to put on your big girl panties. I want you to lift your chin up and understand that, if someone lays all their cards on the table and 90% of them backstab the very people that they "say" they are trying to help, that guy is a sellout.

You cannot constantly say you're helping Black folk, and all the while you're cursing them. You cannot constantly say you're helping Black folk, and all the while you're making them have abortions. You cannot constantly say you're helping Black folk, and all the while you're turning them against the people that make them wealthy. You cannot constantly say you're helping Black folk, and all the while you're teaching them to hate the very people that are fighting for their freedom. You cannot constantly say you're helping Black folk, and all the while you're putting them in the back of the bus, or under it. You cannot constantly say you're helping Black folk, and all the while you're keeping racism and bigotry alive and kicking.

These people below have done all of this. Search each statement. Keep your big boy pants on, and open your eyes and SEE what is going on around you, and TO you.

White Supremacists are Actually Arguing for Black People Against Russell Simmons

MEANWHILE ON STORMFRONT DOT ORG White Supremacists are Actually Arguing for Black People (in their own way) Against Russell Simmons

Below you will find conversations of white supremacists talking about Russell Simmons trying to garner support against Mitt Romney and for Obama, in the Black community. The white supremacists actually have some good points about Russell Simmons.

First of all, to even understand the context of what is going on you have to keep in mind that Russell Simmons is one of the richest Black people on the entire planet, or he was until his Asian wife stole half of his money, like an idiot.

For someone like Simmons, whoever is sitting in the seat, as president, it doesn't even matter. Well, I should say, it shouldn't matter, if he is truly wealthy and truly has assets that maintain his wealth. Do you actually think Russell Simmons worries about gas prices; taxes; home prices; world conflicts; healthcare; or the screams of the poor dying Black people in the community? No, he doesn't. Even listening to him for even a second is an exercise in you being delusional. The same goes for the very politicians you support. They are all rich and removed from every day life.

Anti-Abortion is Not a Republican Platform

Democrats Trick Black Community Into Being Pro-Abortion

This county is rife with nonsensical and forgetful americans.

Being against abortion is not a "republican" platform. The leftist media tries to portray something as being a republican-only issue, to get the Black community to go against its own self interest. The thinking goes like this, "you should hate republicans; republicans are against abortions; therefore you should be for abortions."

This is not a republican platform. This is a Christian platform. If you are Christian, you SHOULD believe that all life comes from God. If you are Christian, then you SHOULD believe that life does not always come through some fairy tale snow white, boy meets girl, happily ever after events. Sometimes life throws you a huge curve ball. If you are a Christian, you SHOULD believe that successfully hitting curve balls is your destiny. Finally, if you are Christian, you believe that you walk a very narrow road that most people cannot even handle being on.

Misplaced Black Confidence in the Democratic Party

Misplaced Black Confidence in the Democratic Party


This confidence, is not based in reality. It is based in complete and utter brainwashing. Blacks have been completely brainwashed, to the point that they do everything to their own detriment on a daily, hourly, every 4 yearly basis.

They have been convinced that Democrats somehow are a good thing for them, yet their financial ruin is only realized during Democratic regimes.

Wall Street Flat After a Six Day Bullish Streak

Wall Street Flat After a Six Day Bullish Streak

(Reuters) - The S&P was coming off its longest streak of advances since mid-April, and both it and the Dow had closed at records on Friday. While Wall Street's uptrend is still viewed as intact, investors are looking for catalysts to deliver more robust gains, and recent economic data has been mixed.

U.S. stocks ended a quiet session on Monday essentially unchanged as investors found few reasons to keep buying following a six-day rally in the S&P 500, though merger activity lifted energy shares.

"Right now we're digesting last week's gains and keeping an eye on all the economic data that's coming out this week," said Leo Grohowski, who oversees more than $184 billion in client assets as chief investment officer at BNY Mellon Wealth Management in New York.
