The Catalans know what independence is and so does the spanish government. The spanish government will try to posture as though Catalonia has no option but to submit evermore and in however servile a fashion Madrid demands. But if the Catalans get together and stop sending tax money to Madrid the game will change immediately. Madrid would likely respond with an irrational use of force but in the end they can't put millions of Catalans in jail. What tax revenue would they get then? If the Catalans stick to their proverbial guns then Madrid will have to cut them half way or all the way loose.

I started investigating Loretta Lynch, Obama’s pick for Attorney General and immediately could see an interesting connection. I read an article stating that when Loretta Lynch started Harvard, she co-founded an African-American sorority. There was only one other girl in this sorority, Sharon Malone. The name rang a bell.
The name of the wife of AG Holder is Sharon Malone, she is the sister of a known civil rights leader Vivien Malone -Jones (one of 2 black students who enrolled in all white University of Alabama).
I checked the age: both were born in 1959 and both went to Harvard at the same time. There were very few African American students in Harvard in 1977-1981, so I am rather certain that Loretta Lynch is an old college friend of Sharon Malone, the wife of the current AG Eric Holder.
Why this connection is important? Holder will be investigated by Congress for totally lawless gun trafficking to Mexican drug cartels in Fast and Furious, IRS scandal, VA scandal, DOJ, NSA, EPA, FEC and other scandals. Most importantly, Holder covered up Obama’s use of a stolen CT Social Security number of Harrison J. Bounel 042-68-4425 and Obama’s use of bogus IDs. It seems that a long time college friend of Holder’s wife was picked up as a gate keeper to continue all of the cover up by Holder and shield Holder and Obama from criminal prosecution.

SR, if you don't want INTL news here just let me know and we could do a separate thread on INTL news.
And Xi Jinping is not afraid to declare it. This is unusual in that diplomatic strains are more normally discussed behind closed doors where the individuals emerge all smiles, yet working earnestly towards resolution. This should be a big heads up for the west.
In an article posted last year, Mr. Zhou called American democracy “a nightmare for the whole human race,” since “all America’s wealth comes from squeezing the rest of the world.”
In 2013, China attracted $118 billion in direct foreign investment, a record amount, and that trend shows no sign of slowing, even as regulators crack down on Western firms such as Microsoft, GlaxoSmithKline and Qualcomm.

You know, I haven't seen that many pictures of Abe before (L), do you think he is trying to look like Ronald Reagan?
Maybe it's already noted. If not, not sure where to put this, so maybe the admin will see it here?
Note that in the black navigation bar at the top of each page, there are 2 links to "Forums", one in the middle of the pack, the other at the end.
They both seem to work, so it may be part of the Master Plan
