looks like sweden and finland have a clear path to nato membership



Turkey lifting objections to Sweden, Finland joining NATO





MADRID — Turkey agreed Tuesday to lift its opposition to Sweden and Finland joining NATO, a breakthrough in an impasse clouding a leaders’ summit in Madrid amid Europe’s worst security crisis in decades triggered by the war in Ukraine.

“We now have an agreement that paves the way for Finland and Sweden to join NATO,” alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said following top-level talks.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine prompted Sweden and Finland to abandon their long-held nonaligned status and apply to join NATO. But Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan had blocked the move, insisting the Nordic pair change their stance on Kurdish rebel groups that Turkey considers terrorists.

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö said the three countries’ leaders signed a joint agreement after talks on Tuesday. Turkey said it had “got what it wanted” including “full cooperation ... in the fight against” the rebel groups.

Russia Counter-Sanctions “Unfriendly Nations” by Requiring Gas Payments in Roubles; Dallas Fed Predicts 2022 Global Recession if Russian Energy Supply Remains Restricted


From the comments:

Michael Hudson March 24, 2022 at 9:56 am

Your explanation was wonderfully clear, Yves. I’ve circulated it to my UN colleagues after a morning meeting with the Near East and India for a meeting. They are seeing dedollarization as a means of de-indebting themselves, especially in view of the rising energy and food prices that will make payment of their foreign debt impossible.
The IMF is trying to give them SDRs to pay dollar bondholders, but the representatives I spoke with today look forward to a Eurasian-backed alternative set of institutions to the IMF and World Bank, starting with a kind of Clean Slate. That was their motive for inviting me to the meeting.
The amazing thing is that it is the US itself that has chosen to dedollarize the world — and perhaps with it, its dollarized debt burden for the Global South.

Maybe they got held up at the scales

I should reverse search the images on FB to find the source, but I don't care enough. 

some of the claims were chuckle worthy- 50,000 gallons of fuel donated, a tip jar w/ $25,000 for the drivers, a donated bbq feed for 2500 people...

So the convoy fizzled out but my guy came through. I do wish it would have been something that took off with the convoy crowd but even without that it still makes me laugh so maybe in a while it will start to take off on its own. They also called it "The Honkening." :hattip:

Did you know that "Canada Goose" is trademarked? I wish the USPTO would wake up.

My brother in law posted something about it last week, a convoy leaving from Barstow. I'll admit, the junk little graphic he shared had a little joke that I thought was hilarious. I couldn't draw it well so I hired a guy online and he's taking for ev er.  I had hoped to sell a ton to these guys but it's funny just on its own, I think. 

Anyway I'm gonna try to cash in. /ethics

It's funny, in Chicago the Mayor ended the vaccine mandate for customers (employees must still be injected)
However, rather than yet another fight with the teachers union, they left the mask mandate for students and schools until August.
She just was not up for another fight with the unions.

The unions want the masks and injections.
