Authored by Dave Paone via The Epoch Times,

In a June 25 letter to Judge Alison Nathan, one of Ghislaine Maxwell’s defense attorneys, Bobbi Sternheim, informed the court that Maxwell was placed on suicide watch yesterday by the Manhattan Detention Center (MDC), and that this “recent development” may “require postponement of Tuesday’s sentencing proceeding.”

Sternheim went on to write, “[Maxwell] is not permitted to possess and review legal documents and is not permitted paper or pen. This has prevented her from preparing for sentencing.”

The attorney stated that this was done “without having

Just as the G7 was underway for its first day of meetings on Sunday in the five-star hotel Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps of Germany, Russia’s military pounded Kiev with a series of missile attacks, which President Joe Biden – who is attending in person – condemned as “more of their barbarism.”

Turkish FM Urges ‘Greater Turkey’ As EU Sides With Greece In Territorial Dispute

The Global Power Shift Isn’t West To East… It’s Not That Simple

The Global Power Shift Isn’t West To East… It’s Not That Simple
Authored by Charles Hugh Smith via OfTwoMinds blog,

The mercantilist dependence on exports for growth, a winner for the past 70 years, has reached diminishing returns. Rather than be a source of growth, it’s a source of stagnation.

Conventional wisdom holds that geopolitical power is inevitably shifting from West to East. It isn’t quite this simple. The real shift is occurring between three sources of power that are not so neatly geographic:

1. The commodity exporters

2. The mercantilist exporters of products

3. The consumer-importing nations

Biden, G-7 Will Ban Russian Gold Imports
Having sparked hyperinflation in European gas prices and record energy costs around the globe with their poorly thought out Russian energy sanctions, which have backfired spectacularly, allowing Moscow to reap record energy export profits and China and India to buy oil far below spot prices while leaving US motorists paying record prices for gasoline, on Sunday the Biden admin alongside the G-7 announced that they will ban Russian gold imports to “further impose financial costs on Moscow for its invasion of Ukraine.”

The import ban will apply to gold leaving Russia for G-7
