Four days after meeting with President Trump, who ‘hoped’ Spain would stay ‘united’ and that “secession would be foolish,” Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy is set to address the nation to explain why he sent his brutish military into Catalonia to stop people of his nation from exercising their free will to vote, injuring over 400 in the meantime.
The Spanish government has opposed the referendum, deeming it “illegal” and “unconstitutional”.
Political leaders outside Spain had publicly backed Rajoy to enforce the law ahead of the vote.
Here was Trump and Rajoy last week…
President Trump said Tuesday that the United States opposes an independence drive in the Spanish region of Catalonia, telling reporters that such secession would be “foolish.”
“I think Spain is a great country, and it should remain united,” Trump said during a news conference with the visiting Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy.
The president’s remarks mark a departure from the official position of the United States, which, as recently as Monday, was that a planned nonbinding Catalonia referendum Sunday to separate from Spain was an internal matter.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert had said earlier this month that the United States took no position on the referendum.
“We will let the government and the people there work it out, and we will work with whatever government or entity that comes out of it,” Nauert said.
But images of Sunday’s crackdown tested that backing…
“It’s a huge PR disaster for the Spanish government. It’s hard to justify the police beating up people,” said Angel Talavera, an analyst at Oxford Economics in London.
“We are going to see the secessionists start to try to win more international support. They will present the events as evidence for their thesis that they are up against a repressive regime.”
And tonight’s live feed from Rajoy to explain the debacle that is occurring in Barcelona and across the region (due to begin at 1415ET):
Remember, as we noted yesterday that “if Catalonia secedes from Spain…in terms of the debt sustainability parameters laid down by the Treaty of Maastricht, it’d be the Eurozone debt crisis 2.0…”

In life, there are certain topics most people would rather avoid discussing. When it comes to performing surgery on human embryos, a lot of people would rather not give it a second thought. However, Chinese researchers may have found a way to remove diseases before a person is even properly born. It is a major breakthrough in the world of healthcare, although additional research is still needed. Chemical Surgery on Human Embryos Despite the marvels of technology, it is evident there are many areas of human development that we have yet to fully comprehend. We do know some people are born with genetic diseases which

After reluctantly complying with orders to shut down polling places, it appears the local Catalonian police have had enough of the Spanish Civil Guard’s brutality. To wit, videos have surfaced showing members of the local police – known as the Mossos – clashing with Civil Guard officers as they try to stop federal police from storming polling stations and attacking peaceful voters.
Public support for the Mossos has remained high despite the crackdown following the terror attack in late August, and video that emerged earlier showed crowds clapping for Mossos officers as they entered a polling station. One video published by the Spain Report shows Civil Guard riot officers physically pushing Mossos officers as they move to enter a polling station in the town. The Mossos officers resist and push back and an angry confrontation ensues for several seconds.
Earlier, Catalan firemen were caught in tape being beaten by Civil Guard officers armed with clubs as the Catalonians tried to protect civilians attempting to vote.
Another video, published by Civil Guard trade union AUGC, showed Mossos officers facing off with Civil Guard riot squad officers, though it didn’t specify where the confrontation took place.

As the Spain Report pointed out, the National Police and Civil Guard had managed to close 92 polling stations in Catalonia by 5 pm. The Catalan government had announced on Friday that there would be 2,315 polling station in total, which means state-level policing actions on Sunday only managed to close 4% of the total, across the region.
The physical clashes followed reports of criminal charges being filed by national police trade unions against their Catalonian counterparts. Five National Police trade unions announced they would take legal action, via criminal complaints, against the Catalan Police (Mossos) and Mossos chief Josep Lluis Trapero for what they believe is a dereliction of duty and for preventing National Police officers from carrying out orders in Catalonia.
“Impunity cannot be allowed in a police force, like the Mossos, which held all of our respect”, said the statement:
“A large number of regional police officers are professional and honourable. But today’s actions open an intense debate about the public security model in our country.”
National Police trade unions condemned Catalan Police chiefs’ commitment to “separatists’ political sectarianism”.
“There are no half-truths here: either you are with the law or committing a crime.”

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump said negotiating with North Korea over its nuclear program would be a waste of time Sunday after it emerged that Washington had channels of contact with Pyongyang.
Only hours after his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson revealed that US officials were in touch with North Korean counterparts, Trump undercut his top diplomat by declaring on Twitter that any talks would be futile.
“I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man,” he said, referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
“Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!“
Speaking on Saturday after talks with China’s President Xi Jinping, Tillerson said that US officials had “two or three” channels of communication with North Korea despite an escalating war of words between their respective leaders.
Asked how he could know whether the North would even contemplate coming to the table, Tillerson told reporters in Beijing: “We are probing, so stay tuned.”
“We have lines of communication with Pyongyang. We’re not in a dark situation, a blackout, we have a couple, three channels open to Pyongyang.”
“We can talk to them, we do talk to them,” he said.
But the State Department later said in a statement that North Korea “have shown no indication that they are interested in or are ready for talks regarding denuclearization.”
In a recent speech at the UN General Assembly, Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea in the event of an attack on the US or any of its allies, deriding Kim as a “Rocket Man” who was on a “suicide mission.”
Kim responded by calling Trump a “mentally deranged dotard.”
His administration has also been at the forefront of a drive to impose a series of sanctions against North Korea in response to its sixth nuclear test — the largest yet — and the firing of two missiles over Japan.
Uneasy over Trump’s bellicose tone, China and Russia have both appealed to the US to have talks with North Korea, and Tillerson’s revelation was welcomed on Sunday by Germany.
“This is exactly the right course and a courageous step,” German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said in a statement.
“North Korea would be well advised to take this offer of talks seriously.”
Gabriel also urged the US to have dialogue with Iran over a nuclear accord which Trump appears on the verge of scrapping, adding that such a move “would undermine the credibility of the offer to North Korea.”
Trump has previously kept the door open to possible talks with North Korea.
In a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in on the sidelines of the UN, Trump responded “Why not?” when asked whether there could be talks.
