IS THERE A WAY TO PREVENT PSYCHOPATHS FROM GETTING INTO POSITIONS OF POWER?

from The Waking Times: Despite a growing resurgence of interest in the science and psychology of narcissistic sociopaths and psychopaths it seems as though society today has lost track of how these people can sabotage the core fabric of a civilization or nation. It is very easy to hyper-focus on collectivist ideologies as the source […]

Fed Cancels Bond-Buying Plan Today, Blames 'Technical Difficulties'

Fed Cancels Bond-Buying Plan Today, Blames ‘Technical Difficulties’ The New York Fed just issued a statement that is is rescheduling today’s planned Treasury Purchase due to “technical difficulties”: Due to technical difficulties, today’s Treasury outright purchase operation – scheduled for 10:10 AM in the 4.5 to 7 year sector for up to $6.025 billion – is being rescheduled. It is now scheduled to take place Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 10:10 AM. Information on Treasury securities operations can be found on the New York Fed’s webpage. This does not impact any other operations scheduled for today. This helped push the belly of the curve to the high (yields) of the day… One wonders what kind of “technical difficulty” there could be?

Chris Hedges: America’s New Class War

PRINCETON, NEW JERSEY (Scheerpost) — There is one last hope for the United States. It does not lie in the ballot box. It lies in the union organizing and strikes by workers at Amazon, Starbucks, Uber, Lyft, John Deere, Kellogg, the Special Metals plant in Huntington, West Virginia, owned by Berkshire Hathaway, the Northwest Carpenters Union, Kroger, teachers in Chicago, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Arizona, fast-food workers, hundreds of nurses in Worcester, Massachusetts, and the members of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. Organized workers, often defying their timid union leadership, are on the march across the United States. Over four million workers, about 3% of the work force, mostly from accommodation and food services, healthcare and social assistance, transportation, housing, and utilities have walked away from jobs, rejecting poor pay along with punishing and risky working conditions. There is a growing consensus – 68 % in a recent Gallup poll with that number climbing to 77 % of those between the ages of 18 and 34 – that the only way left to alter the balance of power and force concessions from the ruling capitalist class is to mobilize and strike, although only 9 % of the U.S. work

BlackRock's Fink Insists “Stakeholder Capitalism” Isn't “Woke” – It's Just Good Business

BlackRock’s Fink Insists “Stakeholder Capitalism” Isn’t “Woke” – It’s Just Good Business In recent years, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink’s annual letter to investors has become almost as closely scrutinized as annual letters from JP Morgan chief Jamie Dimon and Berkshire Hathaway chief Warren Buffett. But while those other shareholder letters aren’t expected until later in the year, Fink has decided to publish his letter just days after BlackRock confirmed in its Q4 earnings that its AUM had surpassed the $10 trillion mark, cementing the firm’s status as the world’s largest asset manager by AUM – a status that’s largely thanks to the firm’s blockbuster ETF business. Just like last year, Fink focused again on shareholder activism, but this time he insisted that the concept of “stakeholder capitalism” isn’t “woke”, but rather a necessity for companies that want to stick around. Only through “effective” stakeholder capitalism that companies can deliver “long term value for…shareholders” – at least, according to Larry Fink. That doesn’t mean that profitability isn’t the single most important corporate metric – it simply means that in a world where financial assets are

Violence Increasing iIn Yemen

Illustrative Image Despite international recommendations, Yemeni war seems far from over. Written by Lucas Leiroz, researcher in Social Sciences at the Rural Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; geopolitical consultant. Day after day, the tensions worsen in Yemen. Recently, the Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for a series of explosions that hit the capital of the United Arab Emirates, damaging places of great strategic value, such as Abu Dhabi airport. In response, a new coalition’s offensive began, with violent bombings being operated in Sanaa. The Arab coalition has launched a major bombing campaign in the Yemeni capital. The attack, according to information provided by the alliance’s spokespersons, is “in response to threat and military necessity”. Such “necessity” refers to recent attacks operated by the Houthis against targets outside the Yemeni territory. The numbers of dead and injured people so far are imprecise, but it is known that many people have been hurt during the coalition’s maneuvers. According to information provided by Al Masirah, a pro-Houthi Yemeni TV channel, four people died and five were injured during the alliance’s operations. Later, some sources began to report that more than ten people had already died, including women and children. As expected, the pro-coalition

US Could Be Planning False Flag Operation In Ukraine To Blame Russia

Illustrative Image Washington’s threats to sanction Putin is not a demonstration of power but one of desperation. Written by Paul Antonopoulos, independent geopolitical analyst Threats that Washington could impose sanctions directly on Russian President Vladimir Putin is not a demonstration of American strength and capability, but rather a demonstration of desperation. If such sanctions were passed and implemented, it will lead to a serious deterioration of relations between the US and Russia and, possibly, even a severing of ties. Senior Democratic senators, led by Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Robert Menendez, unveiled a fresh package of sanctions last week to target Putin and other high-ranking Russian officials – if Washington determines that Russia started a war with Ukraine. It could be speculated that this is really about trying to stop the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline project that will deliver Russian gas to Germany and other parts of Europe. Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov warned that sanctions on Putin are “an unprecedented measure tantamount to severing ties.” Although such an action by the US would be drastic, news of possible sanctions, especially at a time when security negotiations were underway last week between Russia and the US/OSCE, should be seen as a
