‘This 2014 Wembley presentation is your opus to date. Amazing clarity, great HD, great sound, and the most amazing dot connecting and clarity of thought I have ever heard. I have read and listened to most of your work, but the way this one culminated and played out was borderline magical mate.’
– US Singer, Songwriter, Producer Geoff Byrd

”It is great news for majority of Ecuadorian citizens – but terrible nightmare for the ‘elites’.
They no longer feel unique, no longer is this country their huge, private playground and a milking cow. The ‘elites’ still have money and their villas, as well as servants, luxury cars and regular trips to those lands they are faithfully serving – North America and Europe.
But their status is diminishing. No longer they feel admired, no longer they are feared. Increasingly they are forced to play by rules and to respect local laws. That would be unimaginable just ten years ago. For some, this is the end of the world!
‘On Friday, Belgian media announced that their country’s contribution to the anti-ISIL coalition mission has been suspended. Commenting on the announcement, a senior Syrian official told Sputnik that that Brussels’ move comes as no surprise, given the growing divide between the coalition’s stated military aims and its actual activities.
Friday’s announcement came after Belgium’s six F-16 fighter bombers had already returned from their base in Jordan, where they had spent the last nine months participating in the US-led bombing campaign against ISIL in Iraq. Brussels has declared that it could no longer afford to continue funding the air operation.’
‘Russia has announced its readiness to provide Saudi Arabia with Iskander tactical missile systems, a Russian official says.
“If we, let’s say, begin the talks today they will certainly take some time,” Tass news agency quoted Igor Sevastyanov, a deputy director general of Russia’s state weaponry trading corporation Rosoboronexport, as saying on Friday.
“I think if Saudi Arabia wants buying [sic]this equipment, Russia will supply it,” he added.’
‘A group of anti-austerity protesters have interrupted German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s speech in the capital Berlin to show solidarity with ‘No’ voters in Greece’s bailout referendum.
On Saturday morning, the protesters entered the venue where Merkel was scheduled to deliver a speech on the 70th anniversary of the foundation of her party, the Christian Democratic Union (CDU).
The demonstrators held signs with the word “OXI”, meaning “No” in Greek, and chanted the same word to express their support for a “No” vote in Sunday’s plebiscite, in which Greeks will choose whether to accept international creditors’ demands for more austerity in return for bailout loans.’
‘Democratic US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has criticized both China and Russia, blaming them of threatening neighbors and undermining American interests.
Speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire on Saturday, Clinton accused China of trying to “hack into everything that doesn’t move in America.”
The former secretary of state said China was stealing America’s commercial secrets and “huge amounts of government information.”’
‘Greeks begin going to the polls in a crucial referendum that could determine the future of their country and, potentially, that of the single-currency bloc eurozone.
Almost 9.9 million Greeks are eligible to take part in the poll to decide whether or not the government in Athens should accept or reject the proposed bailout terms.
Greece has to choose whether to accept another tough austerity package proposed by the country’s international lenders – the European Commission, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) – in return for fresh bailout loans, with opinion polls predicting a tight vote.’
