Obama campaign DID violate federal election law by allowing foreign donors to funnel in cash via its website

A British citizen has revealed that he was able to donate to Obama's re-election campaign proving that at least one illegal foreign contribution has been accepted and casting suspicion on where millions of dollars may have come from.

Chris Walker, who lives near London, made two $5 dollar donations to the President's campaign this month.

When he tried to donate to Mitt Romney's campaign, the donation was rejected on the grounds that Mr Walker is a foreign citizen.

Banking union will not end Europe's crisis

Eurozone leaders held a summit last week that was important, but not for the reasons you might think. What has been decided will change the future of Europe.

What has been decided will change the future of Europe. The banking union is a tool so powerful that it could unite the core of the EU. But it will also separate it from the rest. It is more useful to think of the banking union as a long-term political project than as a tool of crisis resolution. Depending on your view, it can be monumental or irrelevant.

eBay joins list of firms avoiding most tax - and doing it legally

The auction website eBay has become the latest major company to be accused of tax avoidance after an investigation found it had paid just £1.2m in corporation tax, despite British sales totalling nearly £800m.

Were its tax affairs based solely in Britain, it would have owed HMRC £51m in corporation tax – but it was able to reduce that by almost 98 per cent thanks to funds being passing through its offices in Luxembourg and Switzerland.

However, the TSA is not retiring the controversial backscatter x-ray machines, which some researchers say could cause cancer in up to 100 fliers a year. The devices are simply being moved to smaller airports.
