Catalans Vow to Hand Over to Madrid Boxes Full of Pro-Vote Demands

The Catalan government vowed on Tuesday to send four boxes full of pro-vote demands from some 900 municipalities across the independence-minded Spanish region of Catalonia to the central government and the top court, the regional government's spokesman Francesc Homs said.
As many as 920 out of 947 municipalities in this northeastern region submitted their requests. Homs said the sheer volume of demands would be enough for the government in Madrid and the Spanish Constitutional Court to see "with their own eyes" that Catalonia's desire to vote in the independence referendum should be taken seriously.

The miasma of corruption & nefariousness in Government !

"I have always argued the corner that both the Southern and Northern ruling class/elite in Nigeria are a classic case of "to pull devil, pull baker".

Each of the pair is as bad and big a rogue as the other. It is now clear to all and sundry that no matter what part of the country produces a leader, the leader is part of the rotten system. A bad tree will always produce rotten fruits, no matter what part of the tree you care to pick your fruits from.

Nigeria has always been found wanting in radical disciplined visionary leadership, and no society can produce effective leadership when both citizenry and politicians/business men/religious leaders are rotten to the core. Any leadership is as good or as a bad as its people. A leadership will always reflect the predisposition of the people.

Jonathan’s government shameless – Tinubu

National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu on Saturday described President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration as shameless.
He added that rather than account for the alleged missing $20bn oil revenue, it kept giving untenable excuses.
Tinubu said, 
“They are so shameless that the number of years they have ruled does not matter to them. Don’t change the subject matter. Account for the missing money or go. All the explanations they gave about the missing money are just explanations. They steal from pensioners. We must kick them out.”

Exclusive : 9/11 was carried out by elements in the American government on behalf of the New World Order.

The western mass media and the security services are happy to allow left-wing parties, activists and even subversive left-wing groups to flourish, because they are in fact part of the system. The system is controlled by bankers and the what might be labeled the New World Order and when someone actually threatens their system, one largely based on usury that person needs to be quickly shut up or even assassinated.

This was stated by Mr. David Shayler, a former MI5 officer, in a recent interview.

US President Barack Obama does not need congressional approval to order strikes against Syria, but that option is disadvantageous to him, Chairman of the Russian State Duma International Affairs Committee Alexei Pushkov told Interfax.

“The law obliges the president to seek congressional authorization in case of war, but in a whole number of cases in the past the law was ignored on the basis of Congress’s resolution 1973 which authorizes the president to launch a military operation overseas for up to 60 days under emergency circumstances without seeking permission from Congress if immediate action is necessary,” Pushkov said
