Obama Bids To Persuade Britons To Sacrifice Their Nations Independence To Serve US Geopolitical Interests

U.S. President Barack Obama will head to London next week to join the international chorus of leaders imploring Britain not to leave the European Union.

According to a White House press release on Thursday (14/4/2016) the president will arrive in Britain on April 21 for a three-day visit, just two months before the country votes in an referendum on the issue.

“He will make very clear that this is decision for the people of the United Kingdom to make,” Obama’s close foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters.

“But we have no closer friend in the world and if we are asked our view as a friend, we’ll offer it.”

Rhodes said Obama would be “very straightforward and candid as a friend as to why the US believes that it is good for the UK to remain in the EU.”

Opinion polls suggest the June 23 vote will be a close one, but large numbers of voters remain undecided and Britain’s allies are keen for Europe’s second largest economy to stay in the bloc.

Aside from meeting British officials, Obama will have lunch with Queen Elizabeth II on April 22, one day after the long-serving monarch’s 90th birthday.

He will also stage a joint news conference with Prime Minister David Cameron, who is campaigning for a vote to remain in Europe despite broad support for “Brexit” within his Conservative Party.

On Sunday, after his stay in Britain, Obama will head on to a major industrial fair in Hannover, Germany, where he will give a more general speech on the challenges facing Europe.

Obama's intervention could boost the leave campaign if we all start reminding people of:
a) the disastrous outcome of Obama's wars,
b) The disastrous outcome of Obama's social engineering projects,
c) The disastrous results of Obama's green energy policy
d) The disastrous outcome of Obama's 'affordable healthcare policy


Obama Has been An Inspirational President?Well He Probably Inspired More Suicides Than Any Other
Obama’s greatest achievement perhaps it to have put Donald Trump in The White House. Whether you think this is a good or bad thing depends on your political stance. This blog is neutral, our view being that Trump can’t be a worse president than any of the three that preceded him.

Green Energy Poverty Week
As the climate science research grant phishers, brainwashed socialist idiots, tree hugging, rope sandal wearing weirdie-beardies, and green energy subsidy troughers prepare to celebrate Earch day, supporters of the common sense lobby named the week following Earth day as Green Energy Poverty Week to show respect for those plunged into fuel poverty by green energy taxes levied to fund the wind farm and solar energy subsidy millionaires.

Disillusionment With EU Grows as Swedish Support Slumps By 30%
A new opinion poll carried out on support for the European Union in Sweden has produced some shock findings as a massive turnround among Swedish voters probably due to mass immigration and migrant related crime waves in cities. From being one of the most solidly pro-EU member states, Sweden now has a substantial majority against membership of the EU.

Just a week after putting a massive obstacle in the way of Ukraine's smooth accession to the EU by rejecting the association treaty that sets up free trade and visa free travel between Ukraine and the EU nations, Dutch voters are now demanding a referendum on whether the TTIP free trade deal with the USA can be deemed acceptable in view of the trade advantages it hands global corporations.

Saudi Arabia Threatens To Liquidate Its Treasury Holdings If Congress Probes Its Role In Sept 11 Attacks

An excellent insight into the west's relationship with the medieval mindset of Wahhabi Muslim autocracies. Why do we let the primistive mindset of these oil rich vagina mutilators dictate to us. Maybe it is because the USA has not, for atound a century been a democracy because it was hijacked by oligarchs during World War One and Saudi Arabia is not an ancient monarchy like britain but was created by an opportunist religious nut after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. And that's nor all the two nations have in common. Both like to achieve their political aims by the use of threats and terror.

Anyway, here's Tyler Durden of Zero Hedge on how, once again, the Saudi government is calling the Obama Administration to heel.

Back in January, when the market was watching in shocked silence as oil prices were crashing to decade lows and as concerns emerged that Saudi Arabia may need to commence selling its vast, if unquantified, USD reserves, we wrote a post titled "Attention Finally Turns To Saudi Arabia's "Secret" US Treasury Holdings" where we noted something very surprising: whereas we do know that Saudi Arabia is the owner of the world's third largest USD reserves ... their actual composition remains as a secret, because while the US discloses the explicit Treasury holdings of all other nations, Saudi Arabia's holdings, for some unknown reason, are not officially disclosed.

"It’s a secret of the vast U.S. Treasury market, a holdover from an age of oil shortages and mighty petrodollars," Bloomberg wrote of Saudi Arabia’s US Treasury holdings.

"As a matter of policy, the Treasury has never disclosed the holdings of Saudi Arabia, long a key ally in the volatile Middle East, and instead groups it with 14 other mostly OPEC nations including Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Nigeria,” Bloomberg goes on to note, adding that the rules are different for almost everyone else. Although Saudi Arabia's "secret" is protected by "an unusual blackout by the U.S. Treasury Department," for more than a hundred other countries, from China to the Vatican, the Treasury provides a detailed breakdown of how much U.S. debt each holds."

So who does know how much US paper the Saudis are sitting on? Well, the Saudis of course,"a handful of Treasury officials," and some bureaucrats at the Fed, Bloomberg says, noting that “for everyone else, it’s a guessing game."

Yes, a “guessing game,” but one that will very soon have profound consequences for markets and for geopolitics.

We closed with a simple, if suddenly very prophetic question:

"who would be the new patron saint of the US Treasury Department in the event the Saudis drawdown all of their reserves and decide to diversify away from USD assets... Put differently, who will monetize the US deficit if relations between Washington and Riyadh hit the skids over Iran?"

It is this question that has suddenly reemerged with a bang, and could rock the US administration to its core as what until recently was a "fringe conspiracy theory" is suddenly exposed as an all too unpleasant fact, and becomes the biggest political scandal to rock the U.S. in years, in the process maybe even crushing the friendly diplomatic relations the U.S. has held for years with its biggest Mid-East ally, Saudi Arabia.

It may be pure coincidence of course that the Saudi Arabian treasury has deciced to put pressure on Washington in this way when of the topic of September 11 has reappeared in the news recent weeks. The taboo - in official circles - topic of whether there was a "Saudi connection" in the biggest terrorist attack on US soil (Yes there was). Last weekend, out of the blue, the 60 Minutes news review broadcast an item on the "28 pages" that were classified beyond top secret in the Congressional investigative report into 9/11 - pages that allegedly confirm the Saudi connection.

A report in the New York Times earlier this week revealed Saudi Arabia has told the Obama administration and members of Congress it will sell off hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of American assets held by the kingdom if Congress passes a bill that would allow the Saudi government to be held responsible in American courts for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Saudi officials have always denied that the global beheading capital had anything to do with the Sept. 11 attacks, and the 9/11 Commission officially found "no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded the operation." But critics have noted that the commission’s narrow wording left open the possibility that less senior officials or parts of the Saudi government could have played a role or were selected to take the hit if Saudi involvement was confirmed.

Suspicions have lingered, not just because the conclusions of a 2002 congressional inquiry into the attacks cited evidence that Saudi officials living in the United States at the time had a hand in the plot. Just this week an independent invastigator claimed evidence existed of the detonation of three thermonuclear devices at the site (That is an unofficial report by the way, this publication mentions it as evidence of continuing doubts, we do not endorse it.)

The information contained in those 28 pages removed from the report, still has not been released publicly. It was the surprising rekindled focus on these 28 pages in recent days that suggested that something may have been afoot.
