Hackers Point Out U.S. Arming, Funding ISIS

Hackers deface U.S. Army web site to underscore how the U.S. is supporting ISIS to topple Assad


http://www.prisonplanet.com/hackers-point-out-u-s-arming-funding-isis.html



The hacker group posted a screenshot on Twitter showing Army.mil defaced with pop-up messages stating “Your commanders admit they are training the people they have sent you to die fighting!” and “Stop training the terrorists!”

The SEA is shedding light on a largely open secret: the U.S. and other NATO nations are arming and funding ISIS to topple Syrian president Bashir al-Assad, who stands in the way of a critical natural gas pipeline that would depose Russia as Europe’s primary source of energy.

The link between ISIS and the U.S. was revealed in a declassified U.S. government document obtained by Judical Watch which stated that “the Salafist [sic], the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [al-Qaeda in Iraq] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” and that “the West, Gulf countries, and Turkey support [this] opposition” while Russia, China and Iran “support the [Assad] regime.”

Ex-US Intelligence Officials Confirm: Secret Pentagon Report Proves US Complicity In Creation Of ISIS


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-06-08/ex-us-intelligence-officials-confirm-secret-pentagon-report-proves-us-complicity-cre


Two weeks ago, courtesy of the investigative work of Nafeez Ahmed whose deep dig through a recently declassified and formertly Pentagon documents released earlier by Judicial Watch FOIA, we learned that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad. In his words: "According to the newly declassified US document, the Pentagon foresaw the likely rise of the ‘Islamic State’ as a direct consequence of the strategy, but described this outcome as a strategic opportunity to “isolate the Syrian regime.”

Did Max Boot and Commentary Magazine Lie About Edward Snowden? You Decide.


https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/06/05/max-boot-commentary-magazine-lie-edward-snowden-decide/


It is literally the supreme act of projection for Max Boot to accuse anyone of lacking courage, as this particular think tank warmonger is the living, breathing personification of the unique strain of American neocon cowardice. Unlike Snowden — who sacrificed his liberty and unraveled his life in pursuit of his beliefs — the 45-year-old Boot has spent most of his adult life advocating for one war after the next, but always wanting to send his fellow citizens of his generation to die in them, while he hides in the comfort of Washington think tanks, never fighting them himself.

All of that is just garden-variety neocon cowardice, and it’s of course grotesque to watch someone like this call someone else a coward. But it’s so much worse if he lies when doing so. Did he do so here? You decide. From Snowden’s NYT op-ed today:

CIA Admits It Creates Terrorism

Brennan’s half truth arrives amid evidence CIA played direct role in creating terror groups


http://www.prisonplanet.com/cia-admits-it-creates-terrorism.html


Left unmentioned by Brennan is the fact the CIA creates terrorism. This is not speculation or a conspiracy theory, but rather a documented fact.

Al-Qaeda and other terror groups, including ISIS. are documented CIA assets. The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom, admitted as much when he said “by any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism” to realize foreign policy goals. 

Robert Gates, director of the CIA under Ronald Reagan and George Bush Senior, and Secretary of Defense under both George W. Bush and Obama, wrote in his memoir the CIA had a hand in building up the Afghan mujahideen that would eventually become al-Qaeda. 

Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons al-Qaeda was unquestionably a product of the CIA and western intelligence. 

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also admitted the U.S. created and funded al-Qaeda. 

A recently released Pentagon document shows that the U.S. and the CIA deliberately sided with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Bashir al-Assad in Syria. 

The CIA directed and funded the violent overthrow of the Libyan government. Libya is now a third world cesspool rife with terrorists, including ISIS. The “rebels” supported by the CIA had direct links to al-Qaeda. After the fall of Gaddafi the CIA established a “rat line” to siphon arms to al-Qaeda and the “rebels” in Syria.

Bilderberg Confab to Discuss Iran Solution

Iran Attack Long On Bilderberg Agenda

According to the late Bilderberg journalist Jim Tucker, a plan to destabilize and possibly attack Iran and minimize its influence in the Middle East has been on the Bilderberg agenda for years.

“War in the Middle East has been on the minds of Bilderberg members,” Tucker wrote in 2013.

As Goes The Credit Market, So Goes The World

When confidence cracks, we'll see it there first 


http://www.peakprosperity.com/blog/92757/goes-credit-market-so-goes-world


The stock market is a sideshow. It’s the credit markets where we see the most extreme bubble. It’s the credit markets that have danced most vigorously to the pied piper Central Banker music of the last six years, which is why we are watching them closely. When confidence in the Central Bankers finally cracks, I believe this is exactly where we'll see it first. And it’s this loss of confidence that will mark the decisive turn in the cycle for credit.

Land of the Debt Serf – How “Auto Title Loan” Companies are Ruthlessly Preying on America’s Growing Underclass


http://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2015/06/08/land-of-the-debt-serf-how-auto-title-loan-companies-are-ruthlessly-preying-on-americas-growing-underclass/


Their hefty principal and high interest rates are creating another avenue that traps unwary consumers in a cycle of debt. For about 1 out of 9 borrowers, the loan ends with their vehicles being repossessed…

But Jordan said it wouldn’t make a loan that small. Instead, it would lend her $2,600 at what she later would learn was the equivalent of 153% annual interest — as long as she put up her 2005 Buick Rendezvous sport utility vehicle as collateral.


vw comment:  TAKE A GOOD LOOK at this predatory lending model.  Isn't this EXACTLY WHAT'S GOING ON IN GREECE, and numerous other countries around the world.  UNREPRESENTATIVE "leaders" taking on these huge debt burdens in the name of "the people" and then losing their entire countries to the "banksters" ? So, what's the lesson here ?  How about "neither lender nor borrower be" ?  Anyone ever heard of that one ? And also note how all of the usurious nations are trying to destroy those who have outlawed usury, such as Sharia law nations.  Do you suppose there is a connection, just maybe ??  And notice how the Khazarians are ALWAYS at the cutting edge ?  Producing nothing but ending up with all of the assets.  Not a bad trick, wouldn't you think ?  (If you are an immoral, parasitical, thieving loser !!)  Like I said, take a good, long, hard look at this and then give it some deep thought.  For hear lies one of the roots of all of our problems as a people and as a country.  It was long ago time to run these moneychangers out of the temple.  Yes ?? Just ask Andrew Jackson about that one.

The European "Template" For Dealing With Crises: Freezing Accounts, Bank Holidays, and Capital Controls…


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-06-07/european-template-dealing-crises-freezing-accounts-bank-holidays-and-capital-control


The most important thing I want you to focus on is the speed of these events.

Cypriot banks formally requested a bailout back in June 2012. The bailout talks took months to perform. And then the entire system came unhinged in one weekend.

One weekend. The process was not gradual. It was sudden and it was total: once it began in earnest, the banks were closed and you couldn’t get your money out. ATMs were closed, capital controls were in place, full stop.

There were no warnings that this was coming because everyone at the top of the financial food chain are highly incentivized to keep quiet about this. Central Banks, Bank CEOs, politicians… all of these people are focused primarily on maintaining CONFIDENCE in the system.

103 Years Later, Wall Street Turned Out Just As One Man Predicted


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-06-07/thats-uncanny-102-years-later-wall-street-turned-out-just-man-predicted


The Aldrich Plan was defeated in the House in 1912 but its outline became the model for the bill that eventually was adopted as the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 whose passage not only unleashed the Fed as we know it now, but the entire shape of modern finance. 

In 1912, one person who warned against the passage of the Aldrich Plan, was Alfred Owen Crozier: a man who saw how it would all play out, and even wrote a book titled "U.S. Money vs Corporation Currency" (costing 25 cents) explaining and predicting everything that would ultimately happen, even adding some 30 illustrations for those readers who were visual learners. 

The book, which is attached at the end of this post, is a must read, but even those pressed for time are urged to skim the following illustrations all of which were created in 1912, and all of which predicted just what the current financial system would look like.

A BRIEF NOTE:  the past several weeks have been very quiet so far as stories that are of interest to me are concerned. That is why there has been a rather long pause in my posting of news stories.  During this past week everything began to go wild again, with numerous stories and articles.  Remember that my interest is in matters that are likely to effect investment and economics, above all else.

ISIS is turning US Humvees into Iraq's worst nightmare



http://www.businessinsider.com/isis-turning-us-humvees-into-iraqs-nightmare-2015-6


More than two-thirds of the Humvees the US supplied to Iraq to fight terrorists have ended up in the hands of Islamic State militants.

And the Islamic State (aka ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh), has not wasted any time in converting those vehicles into one of its deadliest and most nightmarish tools: suicide car bombs.

According to Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, ISIS controls about 2,300 armored US Humvees. Most of those vehicles were seized after ISIS overran Mosul in June 2014.

Sheldon Adelson looks to stamp out growing US movement to boycott Israel

Billionaire gambling magnate and Republican party donor convenes closed-door meeting to combat US university movement amid growing Israeli alarm over growing Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign in US and Europe


http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/jun/05/sheldon-adelson-looks-to-stamp-out-growing-us-movement-to-boycott-israel


Resolutions in support of universities divesting from Israel have passed on seven campuses this year and been rejected on eight others. In December 2013, the American Studies Association voted to boycott Israeli academic institutions. The BDS movement is particularly strong at the University of California, which has about 240,000 students.

Confused Economists Ponder Missing Wage Growth "Mystery" 


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-06-05/confused-economists-ponder-missing-wage-growth-mystery


The idea that unemployment is trending lower while wage growth remains stagnant is perplexing to central bankers and although we solved this apparent mystery some three months ago, we understand that for PhD economists, it takes a while for things to sink in, which is why we're happy to explain once more that there is in fact wage growth in America — just not for 80% of the workforce.

Greek Banks On Verge Of Total Collapse: Bank Run Surges "Massively" As Depositors Yank €700 Million Today Alone

An Important Economic Indicator – Money Velocity – Crashes Far Worse than During the Great Depression


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-06-05/important-economic-indicator-%E2%80%93-money-velocity-%E2%80%93-crashes-far-worse-during-great-depre


We noted 3 years ago that the velocity of money – an important economic indicator – is lower than during the Great Depression.

Things have gotten even worse since since then …

By way of background, the velocity of money is the rate at which people spend money.

In other words, it’s the speed at which a dollar moves from one person to the next through the economy.

The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis explains:

The velocity of money can be calculated as the ratio of nominal gross domestic product (GDP) to the money supply … which can be used to gauge the economy’s strength or people’s willingness to spend money. When there are more transactions being made throughout the economy, velocity increases, and the economy is likely to expand. The opposite is also true: Money velocity decreases when fewer transactions are being made; therefore the economy is likely to shrink.

Greece: out of cash, out of time, out of options


http://www.capx.co/greece-out-of-cash-out-of-time-out-of-options/


I, on the other hand, don’t believe either side is particularly interested in achieving a deal. The Eurozone does not want to make any compromise with the current Greek government because (a) they don’t believe they need to because Greek threats to leave the euro are empty both because internal polling suggests Greeks don’t want to leave and because if they did leave that doesn’t really constitute any threat to the euro; (b) because they (particularly perhaps Angela Merkel) believe that under enough pressure the Greek government might collapse and be replaced by a more cooperative government, as has happened repeatedly before in the Eurozone crisis including in Italy and Greece itself; and (c) because any deal with Greece that is seen to involve or be presentable as any victory for the Greek government would threaten the political positions of governments in several Eurozone states including Spain, Portugal, Italy, Finland and perhaps even the Netherlands and Germany.

The Concentration of

Health Care Spending


http://www.nihcm.org/pdf/DataBrief3%20Final.pdf


Spending for health care services in the United States is

highly concentrated among a small proportion of people

with very high use. For the overall civilian population living

in the community, the latest data indicate that more than

20 percent of all personal health care spending in 2009 —

or $275 billion — was on behalf of just 1 percent of the

population (Figure 1). The 5 percent of the population with

the highest spending was responsible for nearly half of all

spending. At the other end of the spectrum, 15 percent

of the population recorded no spending whatsoever in

the year, and the half of the population with the lowest

spending accounted for just 3 percent of total spending.

Massive Manipulation: “Real Producers and Consumers Don’t Appear to be Represented”


http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/massive-manipulation-real-producers-and-consumers-dont-appear-to-be-represented_06042015


The latest example has been highlighted by Keith Neumeyer, the CEO of one of the world’s largest primary producers of silver, First Majestic Silver Corp. (NYSE:AG), in a letter sent to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. In it Neumeyer argues that the evidence for manipulation is clear and that literally tens of billions of dollars in paper-represented silver are being used to manipulate the value of the precious metal:

It occurs to me that such massive speculation in COMEX silver futures may not be in keeping with the spirit and intent of commodity law and may suggest something is wrong with the price discovery process, since real producers and consumers of silver don’t appear to be represented.

NOAA Fiddles With Climate Data To Erase The 15-Year Global Warming ‘Hiatus’



http://dailycaller.com/2015/06/04/noaa-fiddles-with-climate-data-to-erase-the-15-year-global-warming-hiatus/


National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists have found a solution to the 15-year “pause” in global warming: They “adjusted” the hiatus in warming out of the temperature record.

New climate data by NOAA scientists doubles the warming trend since the late 1990s by adjusting pre-hiatus temperatures downward and inflating temperatures in more recent years.


vw comment:  and this is what passes for science.  I am reminded of a book I read years ago titled "How to Lie With Statistics".  This would make a very good example of the process.  I can assure you it is no accident.  And, this is NOT SCIENCE !! but pure phony lying political chicanery if ever there was.  Notice how little is actually being done in response to this supposed great emergency.  Is anyone driving any less ?   Are cars being made smaller.  Are the people who are spraying all of that weather modification poison on all of us slowing down at all ?  No, No, and No !!  So, if it is such an emergency and is so well documented, then why so little action or information ??  Seems like the height of disingenuous from where I sit !!

Gold At $64,000 – Bloomberg’s ‘China Gold Price’


http://www.maxkeiser.com/2015/06/gold-at-64000-bloombergs-china-gold-price/


In order to back $5.4 trillion yuan with 3150 tonnes of gold, the gold price would need to be in the region of $48,600 per ounce.

Bloomberg conclude that, at today’s prices, it would be “basically impossible” for China to fully back its yuan with gold. Indeed, at $1,200 per ounce, it would require over 126,000 tonnes to back $5.4 trillion.

Memo to the Fed and its media tool Hilsenrath: we’re not here to further enrich your already obscenely rich banker and corporate cronies by buying overpriced goods and services we don’t need. Our job is not to spend every cent we earn on interest to banks and mostly-garbage corporate goods and services. Our job is to limit the amount we squander on interest and needless spending. Our job is to build the financial security of our families by saving capital and prudently investing it in assets we control (as opposed to letting Wall Street control our assets parked in equity and bond funds).

On Friday, US drones attacked a funeral in Afghanistan’s Khost Province, tearing through a crowd of mourners and leaving at least 34 of them dead. The funeral was reportedly for a Taliban fighter, and the Afghan government insisted that by extension, all the mourners must’ve been Taliban too.

Greece moves closer to eurozone exit after delaying €300m repayment to IMF

Athens takes creditor by surprise, saying it will bundle together €1.6bn of debt payments due to International Monetary Fund and settle up on 30 June


http://www.theguardian.com/business/2015/jun/04/greece-delays-300m-payment-to-imf




Instead, the decision to delay payments appears to be a show of defiance by Athens against what it sees as unacceptably harsh terms being demanded by its creditors. This increases the chances of Greece defaulting on its debts, losing the support for its weak financial sector from the European Central Bank, and eventually being forced to leave the single currency.

If You're Older Than 40 And Reading This...* 

... you're likely to either be eating out of a dumpster in your old age or be (literally) eaten.


http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=230208


If you currently have counted more than 65 revolutions around the sun in your life then you may avoid this, but only through the most-macabre of means: you'll die of something else first.

Let me explain: If you're between 40 - 65 you have somewhere between 20 and 45 years remaining on this planet, statistically speaking. Oh sure, some of you will do better, some worse, but those are the numbers.

This means you must manage at least 20 years without things going to hell if you're on the older end, and 45 years if you're on the younger. What are the odds?

Investors Start To Panic As A Global Bond Market Crash Begins


http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/investors-start-to-panic-as-a-global-bond-market-crash-begins


Is the financial collapse that so many are expecting in the second half of 2015 already starting? Many have believed that we would see bonds crash before the stock market crashes, and that is precisely what is happening right now. Since mid-April, the yield on 10 year German bonds has shot up from 0.05 percent to 0.89 percent. But much of that jump has come this week. Just a couple of days ago, the yield on 10 year German bonds was sitting at just 0.54 percent. And it isn’t just Germany – bond yields are going crazy all over Europe. So far, it is being estimated that global investors have lost more than half a trillion dollars, and there is much more room for these bonds to fall. In the end, the overall losses could be well into the trillions even before the stock market collapses.

Tax Rebellion in Denmark?


http://armstrongeconomics.com/archives/31307


As the economy turns down and governments become far more aggressive to grab money from everyone, we should see a sharp rise in these types of incidents. This is part of the rising trend in civil unrest. This is all insane since money is no longer tangible; taxes are also no longer necessary. We should seriously address the fact that money is not what it used to be.

And, just like the Jekyll Island group sold their grand plans based on a lie (they claimed that the Fed would guarantee liquidity in times of financial panics), the Better Than Cash Alliance is selling the idea of a cashless society based on the farce that eliminating cash would stimulate entrepreneurship among the poor. In reality, the elimination of cash would reduce a great many opportunities for entrepreneurship for people of few means.

America's closest allies have been busted supporting ISIS in order to topple Syria's government. Mainstream U.S. writers are calling for open support of ISIS and Al Qaeda to enact regime change in Syria.

And a newly-declassified government document hints that the West supported the creation of ISIS.

This may sound far-fectched and wild-eyed ... But the following former high-level US and UK intelligence officials and whistleblowers confirm that the document implicates the West in the birth of ISIS:


---


In any event, whether or not you believe the West created ISIS, the U.S. is now trying to blame the single most unlikely entity imaginable for ISIS ... the Syrian government.

The Ultimate Call: Will Federal Reserve Be Caught Without Gold in ‘Repatriation Rush’?

By now, most of you have read Jon Hilsenrath’s mindless, tone-deaf, idiotic attempt at humor published by the Wall Street Journal yesterday. If not, here it is: A Letter to Stingy American Consumers.

What you may not have seen, are the 174 comments published in response to the article. At least 95% of them consist of justifiable crushing criticism toward the cluelessness of this Federal Reserve apparatchik masquerading as a journalist.

Today's Climate Change Doom is Yesterday's Overpopulation Hysteria

"Whatever became of the population bomb?" 


http://www.truthrevolt.org/news/todays-climate-change-doom-yesterdays-overpopulation-hysteria


In 1968, Standford University biologist Dr. Paul Ehrlich wrote the millions-selling book The Population Bomb which predicted nothing short of the global extinction of humankind due to starvation caused by an overpopulated planet.

Some of his predictions included the end of England by the year 2000, 65 million Americans starved to death by the 1970s, and an overcrowded India leading to its own demise. Of course, none of these prophecies was fulfilled and the Earth's population has now surpassed seven billion -- double that of the '60s.


---


Climate change is the new overpopulation hysteria. The Obama administration now claims that global warming is a threat to national security, it will impact how the military responds during a crisis, it will continue allowing terror groups to gain strongholds, and will directly contribute to a rise in poverty around the world. 



vw comment:  speaking of which whatever happened to the new ice age we were supposed to have ?  Remember that one ?  We were supposed to be having a "little ice age" right now.  Same people spouting the same nonsense !!  But, now, all too conveniently pretending that is just never happened.

Red Flags at Deutsche Bank


http://www.tavakolistructuredfinance.com/2015/06/deutsche-bank-red-flags/


Reuters reported that based on its review of internal emails, Bill Broeksmit alleged various loan loss forecasts were wildly understated. Some were, in his opinion, “microscopic.” He alleged key historical data was ignored. Bill pushed back when as an independent director, he was asked to present management’s point of view to Deutsche Banks’s board. He resisted and wrote: “Who is recommending that I do this?” He thought the loss assumptions were too low and stress tests should be done again. Bill did not give the presentation; someone else did.

All of this occurred in the month before Bill Broeksmit killed himself, and when he thought Deutsche Bank was exposed to criticism that its models were “too generous.”

ECB Loses Its Grip, Bond Market Comes Unglued


http://wolfstreet.com/2015/06/03/euro-bond-market-rout-spirals-out-of-ecbs-control/


The EU’s top regulator for insurers and pension funds, the EIOPA, wasn’t kidding when it warned that the ECB’s €60-billion a month money-printing and bond-buying binge was triggering treacherous “volatility” in the bond markets. “Volatility” isn’t actually the right word. It implies ups and downs. But since QE started in March, euro sovereign bonds have experienced a brutal rout, interspersed with brief periods of calm just long enough for investors to lick their wounds, followed by a brutal rout yesterday and today.

The Guardian view on Greece’s debt crisis: the ultimatum game


http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/jun/03/guardian-view-greece-debt-crisis-ultimatum-game


The moral of this story is that the more creditor states try to “manage” the situation, the more unmanageable they will find it – both politically and economically. It is no good simply handing Athens an ultimatum, even if it is less unreasonable than before. The two sides need to negotiate, openly and democratically. Whether they can do so will be the litmus test of the eurozone’s validity.

Dr. Lacy Hunt on the Six Characteristics of Over-Indebted Economies


http://www.financialsense.com/financial-sense-newshour/lacy-hunt/over-indebted-economies


Wondering why economic growth can’t seem to take off or why inflation continues to fall? According to Dr. Lacy Hunt, Executive Vice President of Hoisington Investment Management, it all comes down to debt, which helps to explain most of the world’s economic problems today. Lacy describes the six characteristics of over-indebted economies, the most toxic type of debt to economic growth and financial stability, his view of the endgame, and why he still sees "signficant value" in long-dated US Treasury bonds.

Dr. Lacy Hunt on US Endgame and Greatest Risk to Financial Markets


http://www.financialsense.com/contributors/dr-lacy-hunt/us-endgame-greatest-market-risk


vw comment:  this man's name came up during the last webinar with Larry Williams (one of top commodity traders on the planet), several weeks ago.  Larry spoke very highly of his work.  Said he is almost "prescient".  Coming from Larry, whose work I have been following for the past three to four decades, I  took notice.  Looked up his writings at Hoisington Investment Management where he writes and publishes periodic reports on the overall economy.  Haven't gotten to read any of the reports just yet, but is most certainly on my "to do" list.

Based on Larry's opinion I intend to keep an eye on this man and his writings.  One of a very few of the "good guys", sounds like to me. 

Given that Larry's six month and one year forecasts have been from 90-100% accurate, over and over again, for past several years, as you can imagine, I trust his opinon regarding such matters.

In Boston, Media Again Trash a Police Shooting Victim by Uncritically “Reporting” Police Accusations


https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/06/03/media-trash-character-police-shooting-victim-reporting-anonymous-smears/


So just like that, major American media outlets converted someone about whom they knew nothing into a dangerous terrorist in the middle of executing an ISIS-related terror plot. And the heroic law enforcement officials didn’t just kill an ISIS Terrorist on the loose in America, but likely disrupted a vicious sleeper cell. All of that was achieved without a shred of evidence or investigation: just mindlessly repeating the self-justifying claims of the police agents who had just killed him.

---

Whatever the truth about the shooting itself turns out to be, think about what happened here. A black Muslim man charged with no crime was standing at a bus stop when approached by the FBI and BPD, who had no warrant to arrest him. Within minutes, he was dead. And literally within hours, he was universally vilified in the American media — with zero evidence — as an ISIS-inspired terrorist in the midst of a plot potentially involving multiple unnamed “others,” all based on nothing more than police accusations.

The New York Times said Ms Gupta’s death in April is one of numerous unexpected deaths or suicides of young bankers over the last year. It said it had sparked a round of reflection by Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street firms about their work policies.

Last week, Thomas Hughes, a 29-year-old banker at Moelis & Company, was found dead with drugs in his system after falling from a building in Manhattan, the paper said.

Fund Manager: Gold Pops Again – Something Ominous Is Brewing


http://www.silverdoctors.com/fund-manager-gold-pops-again-something-ominous-is-brewing/


Two days in a row now gold has inexplicably popped up and the dollar has tanked. Today, in fact, the dollar has gone off a cliff! 

I would thus suggest that unusual amount of gold volatility we are seeing yesterday and today – and the volatility does not crank up until after the Asian physical markets are closed and the London/NYC phony paper markets are in full swing – is the unequivocal signal the paper purveyors of gold are starting to feel a lot more pressure from the Asian demand for physical gold. Indeed, the sharks are running out of food.

Something Ominous is Brewing…

Submitted by PM Fund Manager Dave Kranzler, Investment Research Dynamics:

When the sharks start feeding on each other, you know the food supply is running out.

Petrobras Pays Up: The High Price Of Issuing A 100 Year Bond


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-06-02/petrobras-pays-high-price-issuing-100-year-bond


The scandal-surrounded, junk-rated, state-managed Brazilian oil producer Petrobras managed to successfully issue a $2.5 billion notional 100-year bond yesterday. Mainstream media is cock-a-hoop over the fact that the 'market' seemed to soak this bond up so easily and at a yield of 8.45% (which was 20-30bps below guidance) amid an order book apparently up to asround $10 billion. However, for those with some math skills, the truth is that it cost Petrobras around $380 million more than market-implied levels to successfully launch the bond (and so it should).

Petrobras is not the first to issue a Century-bond (as the following chart from Bond Vigilantes shows back in 2010)

Trendies Ready for Ultimate Wearable: “Chip Implanted in Their Skin Used for Payments”

The Mark of the Beast is more almost here than ever before.

As SHTF has previously noted, the likelihood of a forced RFID implant under the guise of a martial law pandemic emergency might be a little too obvious, as far as future tyranny goes.

Before it comes to that, it seems plenty of people will be voluntarily subjecting themselves to cattle-like status, by jumping at the chance to ditch the inconvenience of a wallet and get a “smarter” payment system that can be embedded under their skin.

Via the Business Insider:

A mind-boggling 25% of Australians say they are at least “slightly interested” at the prospect of having a chip implanted in their skin that could be used for payments, new research has found.

‘The Economist’ Anti-Gold Article – Case Study in Disinformation

 

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-05-08/%E2%80%98-economist%E2%80%99-anti-gold-article-%E2%80%93-case-study-disinformation

 

In a remarkably unbalanced and lazy article on gold this month the Economist magazine attempts to dismantle the case for investors and others to own gold. Both from an investment point of view and also from an ethical point of view.

Besides attempting to paint gold as an unethical investment, it also attempts to portray those who diversify into gold as crazed, irrational investors and the stock pejorative name calling of gold "bugs."

The overall tenure of the piece is that everything that "gold bugs" have predicted would unfold in the past number of years has come to nought and therefore gold is the preserve of irrational, gullible fools.

It comes complete with a picture of a presumably impoverished young African man panning for gold in an artisanal gold mine and the subtitle "An ever more marginal existence."

The article is so laughably one sided that it resembles propaganda rather than journalism. Therefore, we take pleasure in dissecting the article misleading sentence by misleading sentence.

Bank Reserves and Loans: The Fed is Pushing On a String

http://www.maxkeiser.com/2015/05/bank-reserves-and-loans-the-fed-is-pushing-on-a-string/#more-77298

 

But lowering reserve requirements is no longer generating more borrowing,

for two basic reasons: those who might want to borrow are no longer creditworthy due to excessive debt and/or stagnant income, or those who qualify to borrow more are not interested in borrowing more at any interest rate: they are done with debt.

As others have noted, the Fed can push interest rates down and make it easy for banks to loan more money, but it can’t (yet) force us to borrow money we don’t want or need.

"We would expect such a momentous decision to be preceded by substantial debate, and expressed in unmistakable language. There is no evidence of such a debate," the ruling read.

It seems hard to believe, but your government is purposely recreating the mortgage debacle of 2007 and putting you on the hook for the billions in losses coming down the road.

In their frantic effort to generate the appearance of economic recovery they are willing to gamble with taxpayer’s money while luring unsuspecting blue collar folks into buying houses they can’t afford. During the previous housing bubble, greedy Wall Street bankers, deceitful mortgage brokers, and corrupt rating agencies colluded to commit the greatest control fraud in the history of mankind. This time it is your government, aided and abetted by the Federal Reserve, that is actively promoting the lending of money to people incapable of paying it back. And again, you the taxpayer will be on the hook when it predictably blows up

So if this is happening already, what are things going to look like once the next recession strikes?

Negative interest rates put world on course for biggest mass default in history

More than €2 trillion-worth of eurozone government bonds trade on a negative interest rate. It's a bubble that is bound to end badly 


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/comment/jeremy-warner/11569329/Jeremy-Warner-Negative-interest-rates-put-world-on-course-for-biggest-mass-default-in-history.html


Here’s an astonishing statistic; more than 30pc of all government debt in the eurozone – around €2 trillion of securities in total – is trading on a negative interest rate. 

With the advent of European Central Bank quantitative easing, what began four months ago when 10-year Swiss yields turned negative for the first time has snowballed into a veritable avalanche of negative rates across European government bond markets. In the hunt for apparently “safe assets”, investors have thrown caution to the wind, and collectively determined to pay governments for the privilege of lending to them. 


from the reader comments, sloweddie had this to say:

What is extraordinary to me is to be reading the kind of comments here on the Telegraph. Not in Zerohedge or dissident economists blogs but here. Obviously enormous real pessimism about the future. However I think it is beginning of a collapse of a system put into place by the Western Financial Taliban.

Wealth Destruction for the 99.9 Percent


http://www.batr.org/totalitariancollectivism/042115.html


Blaming the 1% for diminished prosperity avoids the real reasons for designed poverty. In round terms, the seven billion souls that populate this planet translate into seventy million to be part of the 1%. Well, that amount is still a very large number to blame for the systemic transfer of riches into the hands of the few. A far more relevant approach is to examine the .001% or around seven million that fall into the mover or shakers of asset and possessions. Before targeting this group of mega wealth, that figure includes a very significant number, who are non players when it comes to global politics or transnational finance.

Gold - Visualized in Bullion Bars


http://demonocracy.info/infographics/world/gold/gold.html


There's surprisingly little Gold in the world & this infographic shows all the Gold ever mined.

In this Gold infographic everything is calculated with Gold price at $2000/oz. 

When Gold reaches $3110/oz, 1 oz of Gold & a $100 bill will have equal value in weight and it won't matter if you have 1oz of $100 bills or 1oz of Gold. 

Gold is usually measured in Troy Ounces. A Troy Ounce is about 1.09 regular Ounces.

Scientists find key to 'turbo-charging' immune system to kill all cancers


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/11542544/Scientists-find-key-to-turbo-charging-immune-system-to-kill-all-cancers.html


“It could be a game-changer for treating a number of different cancers and viruses. 

“This is a completely unknown protein. Nobody had ever seen it before or was even aware that it existed. It looks and acts like no other protein.” 

The protein – named lymphocyte expansion molecule, or LEM, promotes the spread of cancer killing ‘T cells’ by generating large amounts of energy. 

Normally when the immune system detects cancer it goes into overdrive trying to fight the disease, flooding the body with T cells. But it quickly runs out of steam. 

However the new protein causes a massive energy boost which makes T cells in such great numbers that the cancer cannot fight them off. 

It also causes a boost of immune memory cells which are able to recognise tumours and viruses they have encountered previously so there is less chance that they will return.

The Anthrax Coverup Exposed

Paul Craig Roberts


http://www.prisonplanet.com/the-anthrax-coverup-exposed.html


Update: Both Senator Leahy and Senator Daschle were in positions capable of blocking the neo-Nazi PATRIOT Act. Both senators had negotiated with the Bush regime changes in the act that made it less tyrannical. However, the changes were not in the final draft of the act sent to Congress. Consequently, Leahy and Daschle were resisting the rush to passage. I have often wondered if Leahy and Daschle understood the anthrax letters to be Washington’s warning: “Get out of the way of Tyranny or we will kill you.”

‘Bloggers’ Compared to ISIS During Congressional Hearing

People who challenge establishment narratives online likened with terrorist organization


http://www.prisonplanet.com/bloggers-compared-to-isis-during-congressional-hearing.html


Without a doubt, RT puts out pro-Russian propaganda, but it also broadcasts truths about geopolitics and U.S. foreign policy that Americans will never see on mainstream corporate networks, precisely because those networks are also engaged in propaganda.

There’s no mystery behind why RT has become so big – telling the truth is popular – but because Washington finds it impossible to compete on that basis, it has been forced to resort to ad hominem attacks and ludicrous comparisons to ISIS in a desperate bid to level the playing field.

As linguist Noam Chomsky said, “The idea that there should be a network reaching people, which does not repeat the US propaganda system, is intolerable” to the US establishment.

Citigroup's Gold "Expert" Demands A Cash Ban


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-04-16/another-shill-statism-central-planning-demands-cash-ban


As Bloomberg reports:

“The world’s central banks have a problem. When economic conditions worsen, they react by reducing interest rates in order to stimulate the economy. But, as has happened across the world in recent years, there comes a point where those central banks run out of room to cut — they can bring interest rates to zero, but reducing them further below that is fraught with problems, the biggest of which is cash in the economy.

In a new piece, Citi’s Willem Buiter looks at this problem, which is known as the effective lower bound (ELB) on nominal interest rates. Fundamentally, the ELB problem comes down to cash. According to Buiter, the ELB only exists at all due to the existence of cash, which is a bearer instrument that pays zero nominal rates. Why have your money on deposit at a negative rate that reduces your wealth when you can have it in cash and suffer no reduction? Cash therefore gives people an easy and effective way of avoiding negative nominal rates. Buiter’s note suggests three ways to address this problem:

Abolish currency.

Tax currency.

Remove the fixed exchange rate between currency and central bank reserves/deposits.

Statue of Liberty-sized ASTEROID on collision course to hit EARTH, experts fear

AN asteroid the size of the Statue of Liberty is on a collision course to hit EARTH, scientists fear.


http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/570239/Asteroid-collision-course-earth


Asteroid 2012 TC4 is set to whizz dangerously close to our planet for the second time after the space rock narrowly missed Earth in October 2012.

Astronomers estimate 2012 TC4 could be as large as 40m wide - just under the height of New York's famous Statue of Liberty from her feet to the tip of the torch.

This is twice the size of the meteor that exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in February 2013, which injured 1,500 people and damaged more than 7,000 buildings.

The impact of the larger 2012 TC4 asteroid, predicted to near Earth on October 12 2017, could be even more devastating

Hazardous radioactive material stolen in Mexico


http://www.presstv.ir/Detail/2015/04/16/406523/Mexico-reports-radioactive-theft


This is not the first case of radioactive material theft reported in Mexico.

In December 2013, thieves, unaware of what they were stealing, took a truck containing highly radioactive cobalt-60 from a cancer-treating medical center near Mexico City. Police found the thieves and recovered the potentially lethal radioactive material, with no casualties.

A similar incident took place in July 2014 which Mexican authorities handled, also without any fatalities.

Once more in February 2015, authorities recovered three stolen trucks in central Mexico that had been transporting radioactive material for industrial use.

Huge Trouble Is Percolating Just Under The Surface Of The Global Economy


http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/huge-trouble-is-percolating-just-under-the-surface-of-the-global-economy


Did you know that the number of publicly traded companies declaring bankruptcy has reached a five year high? And did you know that Chinese exports are absolutely collapsing and that Chinese economic growth in 2014 was the weakest in over 20 years? Even though things may seem to be okay on the surface for the global economy at the moment, that does not mean that big trouble is not percolating just under the surface.

Drought Number One Emergency in California-Ellen Brown


http://usawatchdog.com/drought-number-one-emergency-in-california-ellen-brown/


Brown goes on to say, “What makes me suspicious is this wall of weather that prevents the jet stream from pushing storms that usually come from the Pacific Ocean across California, Oregon and Washington State. So, that’s been going on for 4 years, and nobody knows what causes it. It is highly suspicious, and it may be caused by HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program). That’s the military use of Tesla technology, or it could be caused by geoengineering, which is chemtrails. A lot of people call this conspiracy theory, but if you look up in the skies, you can see them. The skies are crisscrossed, and they are dropping aluminum and barium on the land. California supplies the nation with 50% of their produce. Most of the organic produce comes from California. So, if you are putting aluminum on all the land, there is going to be no such thing as organic anymore. All food and all crops are being poisoned by this aluminum.”

Wall Street is getting involved with the coming water wars. Brown says, “Goldman Sachs has declared that water is now the new oil. So, they are buying up all of these water rights, and there are huge funds set aside for water. They attempted to privatize the Reno water district and then lease it back to the city of Reno, but the people protested. That’s the model you see everywhere.


vw comment:  good interview.  But notice how Greg Hunter seems incredulouws at what he is being told.  He just doesn't seem to be able to get the fact that in order to turn the water back on, all you have to do is STOP TURNING IT OFF !! with microwaves, HAARP, etc.  A good example of what one sees all too often when one tries to explain that this drought is VERY MUCH MANMADE !!  And what a disgrace as our arrogant pretended political leaders all play stupid.  There being simply NO WAY that our (Jesuit/Khazarian controlled) Governor doesn't know what is going on.

Lawsuit: Police Give Lawyer Hard Drive Infected with Surveillance Malware

Lawyer representing police whistleblowers finds trojans on department-provided drive


http://www.prisonplanet.com/lawsuit-police-give-lawyer-hard-drive-infected-with-surveillance-malware.html


“Something didn’t add up in the way they approached it, so I sent it to my software guy first,” Campbell said. “I thought ‘I’m not plugging that into my computer,’ so I sent it to [a software expert] to inspect.”

After carefully inspecting the hard drive, security consultant Geoff Mueller discovered well known malware, capable of implanting backdoors and logging passwords.

“One would have kept my Internet active even if I tried to turn it off, one would have stolen any passwords that I entered in, and the other would have allowed the installation of other malicious software,” Campbell told the Arkansas Online.

For U.S. shale drillers, the crash in oil prices came with a $26 billion safety net. That’s how much they stand to get paid on insurance they bought to protect themselves against a bear market -- as long as prices stay low.

The flipside is that those who sold the price hedges now have to make good. At the top of the list are the same Wall Street banks that financed the biggest energy boom in U.S. history, including JPMorgan Chase & Co., Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co.

“the young are starting to realize that they are going to be paying for the rest of their lives for services that they’re never going to receive in order to cover the debts that we have incurred by taking money from one people to buy the votes of another.”

vw comment:  when I was in law school we studied Fourth Amendment cases.  The entire meaning of the amendment was systematically swallowed up by exception upon excpetion, all being done during the tenure of Supreme Court Chief Justice Rehnquist.  Over the years they pretended, just as they do now, that they were doing some great work, as they were actually systematically undermining the very constitution which they had sworn to uphold and defend.   By the time they were done they had perfected their modus operandi.  They are cowards and traitors, to a person, so far as I am concerned.  And phony as the day is long.  War on poverty.  Then war on drugs.  And now war on terror.  In that regard, I must remind just how important one little word can be.  Change the word "on" to "of", and you will see what I mean (i.e. war on terror, or war of terror ?).  This is NOT a government of, by, and for the people. And it is not an oligarchy either.  It is ANARCHY, pretending to be government.  Lawlessness on every side, pretending to be order. What a disgrace.  A criminal enterprise, if ever there was one.  Just look at the two leading contender candidates.  Bush and Clinton.  Do I really need to say anymore ?

THERE ARE SOME INTERESTING LINKS AND BOOK REFERENCES IN THE COMMENTS.

'TIS ALL SAD BUT TRUE.

THE WORST PART IN ALL OF THIS ARE THE PHONY RELIGIONISTS 

WHO TELL EVERYBODY THAT IT IS O.K. TO HATE AND MURDER ONE ANOTHER.

LOVE ONE ANOTHER

PEACE ON EARTH AND GOODWILL TOWARD MEN

are the commands of Christos, 

which is the diametric  opposite 

of what these false brethren wolves in sheep's clothing 

are teaching their little cultic coven members. 

Lot's of food for thought here.

Another Oligarch Preaches to the Peasants – Charlie Munger Says “Prepare for Harder World”


http://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2015/03/26/another-oligarch-preaches-to-the-peasants-charlie-munger-says-prepare-for-harder-world/


There’s a staggering amount of offensiveness in such few words. First off, he says that: “We should all be prepared for adjusting to a world that is harder.” Who is included in the word “all” here. Certainly not his fellow oligarchs, who already bailed themselves out in incredible fashion and have been spending the years since protecting themselves from the horrible future they’ve created. No, he is speaking to the masses, the plebs, the serfs, the peasants, the ruled. He is telling them tough luck, just try to avoid cannibalism in the future. Meanwhile, if you get close to my castle I’ll have you shot down like a dog.

He then shows his cards once again with the statement: “If you’re unhappy with what you’ve had over the last 50 years, you have an unfortunate misappraisal of life.” 

50 years of life? What about those us who haven’t had the pleasure of being alive so long. What about the millennials, the teenagers, and the babies being born right now? He couldn’t give a shit, which is exactly why he and his buddies went out of their way to protect the wealthy, older generations with their bailouts in 2008/09. Conveniently, this is the exact demographic he belongs to.

His comments are particularity striking when you take them in context of yesterday’s article from the Wall Street Journal: Executive Pensions Are Swelling at Top Companies. If you think these guys are going to be dealing with the “hard times” ahead like everyone else, think again.

It’s Official: The Pentagon Finally Admitted That Israel Has Nuclear Weapons, Too


http://www.thenation.com/blog/202129/its-official-pentagon-finally-admitted-israel-has-nuclear-weapons-too


The IDA team visited Israeli labs, factories, private companies and government research centers in Israel and relevant NATO nations (details on NATO allies were redacted from the released version). On Israel, the tone of the report was both admiring and collegial. “The SOREQ center,” it said, for instance, “runs the full nuclear gamut of activities from engineering, administration and non-destructive testing for electro-optics, pulsed power, process engineering and chemistry and nuclear research and safety. This is the technology base required for nuclear weapons design and fabrication.”

The IDA team added: “It should be noted that the Israelis are developing the kind of codes which will enable them to make hydrogen bombs. That is, codes which detail fission and fusion processes on a microscopic and macroscopic level.” So far, The IDA estimated, Israel scientists were about where the US had been in the 1950s in understanding fission and fusion processes.

Clinton Foundation’s Deep Financial Ties to Ukrainian Oligarch Who Pushed for Closer Ties to EU Revealed


http://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2015/03/20/clinton-foundations-deep-financial-ties-to-ukrainian-oligarch-who-pushed-for-closer-ties-to-eu-revealed/


When I first came across the title to this article, I didn’t think much of it. In fact, I almost didn’t even click the link thinking it was just a repeat of a prior expose I highlighted in the post: Hillary Clinton Exposed Part 2 – Clinton Foundation Took Millions From Countries That Also Fund ISIS.

Fortunately, I did decide to take a look and pretty soon my jaw absolutely hit the floor. Although the Wall Street Journal didn’t play up the connection, I was stunned to see that of all the oligarchs connected to foreign governments who donated to the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State, Ukraine was at the very top. I thought this to be strange, but as I read on I just couldn’t believe how connected the main donor was to the current regime in power. Considering this is the main geopolitical hotspot on earth right now, many, many questions need to be asked.

US Threatened Germany Over Snowden, Vice Chancellor Says


https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/03/19/us-threatened-germany-snowden-vice-chancellor-says/


Afterward, however, when I pressed the vice chancellor (who is also head of the Social Democratic Party, as well as the country’s economy and energy minister) as to why the German government could not and would not offer Snowden asylum — which, under international law, negates the asylee’s status as a fugitive — he told me that the U.S. government had aggressively threatened the Germans that if they did so, they would be “cut off” from all intelligence sharing. That would mean, if the threat were carried out, that the Americans would literally allow the German population to remain vulnerable to a brewing attack discovered by the Americans by withholding that information from their government.

This is not the first time the U.S. has purportedly threatened an allied government to withhold evidence of possible terror plots as punishment.

What Would Ike Do?

by Patrick J. Buchanan,


http://original.antiwar.com/buchanan/2015/03/19/what-would-ike-do/


How far we have fallen from the America of Ike and John Foster Dulles has been on painful display this March.

An Israeli leader told a joint session of Congress that President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is stupid and dangerous and must be rejected. Congress gave him 40 ovations.

Bibi Netanyahu then went home and told the world there will be no Palestinian state, and was re-elected in a smashing victory.

“Perhaps it’s time for Americans, especially those in the White House, to recognize this new reality of Israeli politics,” says The Wall Street Journal. We should restore “Israeli confidence in U.S. support.”

Excuse me? Who is the senior partner here? Who needs whom more?

Netanyahu Unmasks Israel


https://consortiumnews.com/2015/03/18/netanyahu-unmasks-israel/


Desperate to win reelection, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stripped off Israel’s mask and exposed the ugliness that has deformed his country over the past several decades. He abandoned the subterfuge of a two-state solution, exposed the crass racism that underlies Israeli politics, and revealed Israel’s blatant control of the U.S. Congress.

For years, these realities were known to many Americans, but – if they spoke up – they were condemned as anti-Semites, so most stayed silent to protect their careers and reputations. But – given Netanyahu’s brazen admissions – the American people may have little choice but to finally take notice of this troubling reality and demand a change in U.S. policy.

The Unraveling Is Gathering Speed


http://www.oftwominds.com/blogmar15/debt-saturation3-15.html


Debt saturation and debt fatigue = diminishing returns on central bank tricks. 

Does anyone else have the feeling that things are not just unraveling, but that the unraveling is gathering speed?

Though quantifying this perception is more interpretative than statistical, I think we can look at the ongoing debt crisis in Greece as an example of this acceleration of events.

Austria to Default on Debt of 10.2 billion Euros


http://armstrongeconomics.com/2015/03/18/austria-to-default-of-debt-of-10-2-billion-euros/


The province of Carinthia in Austria with its multibillion-dollar commitments for the former Hypo Alpe Adria, is presenting the classic problem. Does the state honor its guarantees, or does it simply say sorry, we never really guaranteed that. The state government is looking to default of its debt of €10.2 billion euro guarantees. This is how it always goes down. Guarantees are historically abandoned when it comes to the bottom line.

History repeats in the most striking ways. The first bank to collapse that set in motion the Sovereign Debt defaults of 1931 was Credit Anstalt in Austria, 1931. That shook the foundation of confidence because it also marked the end of the Rothschilds as a formidable banking group.

Opinion: Biggest threat to the euro? The clowns who run Greece 


http://www.marketwatch.com/story/biggest-threat-to-the-euro-the-clowns-who-run-greece-2015-03-18?link=MW_popular


While Tsipras and Varoufakis are grandstanding in Parliament, or sounding off on Twitter, Greece is sliding deeper into trouble. Tax collection has collapsed. Prices are falling even further. Reform has stalled, and the best the government can come up with are plans such as getting tourists at resorts to double up as tax inspectors to catch bar tenders avoiding their payments to the government.

---

A competent administration requires competent people, but they are not drawn to protest parties. Whether they stay in the euro or get out, tax systems have to be made more effective, and competitiveness needs to be improved. But the radical parties are made up of clowns who don’t know how to make that happen. 

History teaches us that the worst catastrophes are bought about not by design but by mistake. Greece could easily be about to teach us that lesson all over again.

Google Disables All Ads on Antiwar.com

– because we have a page showing the Abu Ghraib abuses.


http://antiwar.com/blog/2015/03/18/google-disables-all-ads-on-antiwar-com/


On 3/18/15 we received a note from Google Adsense informing us that all ads for our site had been disabled. Why? Because of this page showing the horrific abuses committed by U.S. troops in Iraq at Abu Ghraib.

This page has been up for 11 years. During all that time Google Adsense has been running ads on our site – but as Washington gets ready to re-invade Iraq, and in bombing, killing, and abusing more civilians, they suddenly decide that their "anti-violence" policy, which prohibits "disturbing material," prohibits any depiction of violence committed by the U.S. government and paid for with your tax dollars. This page is the third-most-visited page in our history, getting over 2 million page views since it was posted.

To say this is an utter outrage would be an understatement: it is quite simply the kind of situation one might expect to encounter in an authoritarian country where state-owned or state-connected companies routinely censor material that displeases the government.

Is Google now an arm of the U.S. State Department?


vw comment:  truly marvelous l  

I am so glad that we don't do torture, as our last great leader told us so emphatically, so many times.

To answer the above question, according to my best estimates Google has been an arm of this authoritarian faux government all along.

Is Antiwar just now figuring this out ?

Or was that just a rhetorical question.

Good thing we are looking forward and not looking back. 

Yes ??

"Colossal Defeat" For Obama As Australia Joins China's Regional Bank


http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-16/colossal-defeat-obama-australia-joins-chinas-regional-bank


Obama went out of his way to embarrass the Prime Minister politically on climate change with a rogue speech at the G20 summit in Brisbane.

The speech had been billed as dealing with American leadership in Asia and instead was full of ­material designed to embarrass Abbott.

Since then, the Abbott government has felt absolutely zero subjective good will for Obama.

This is an outlook shared by many American allies.

Suicide Or Homicide? In Ukraine, Old-Guard Officials Dying Mysteriously 

http://www.rferl.org/content/suicide-homicide-ukraine-officials/26888375.html


This year Ukraine has seen a bizarre string of deaths involving high-ranking officials, including a ex-city mayor, a former railway executive, and the former head of the state body in charge of privatization. 

A total of five officials died in a single 34-day period between January 28 and February 28. In each case, the deaths have been ruled probable suicides. But the victims' political allegiances and job histories have led many in Ukraine to suspect that the men were in fact murdered:

Lifestyles Of The Not So Austere & Socialist: Greek FinMin Edition

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-13/lifestyles-rich-famous-greek-finmin-edition


As the Greek people live in perpetual fear of financial ruin and are subjected, on a near hourly basis, to rumors about just what kind of humiliation they may be forced to endure next in order to insure that Christine Lagarde gets the money she needs to prop up Ukraine for another couple of months, Yanis Varoufakis isn’t about to roll over and allow his people to drown in despair. On the contrary, the finance minister apparently believes the best way to restore the faith is to show the Greek people just how good life could be by staging a not very austere photoshoot…

So Greece, as you face the possibility that your salaries will be suspended and your pension funds plundered, take solace in the fact that you can live well vicariously through your elected officials. 

Not all Greeks are particularly amused by the pictures.

One American's Rage Spills Over: Shut Your Mouth & Start Fighting These Political Parasites

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-13/one-americans-rage-spills-over-shut-your-mouth-start-fighting-these-political-parasi


I was shocked today by the absolute gaul of the Fed releasing a statement about Net Worth in America reaching record levels. Now I get that they are under extreme pressure to sell the story that everything is rainbows and butterflies. But surely they understand that working class Americans are going along with the story because they really don’t have any say in our nation’s policies anymore. That doesn’t mean they want it thrown in their faces that the Fed has spent 6 years now inflating the wealth of the top 10% so much that it actually lifts the total wealth of the nation’s citizens to record highs.

The ugly reality is that the bottom 80% of Americans experienced none of that gain. That’s right a big ole goose egg. And so when the Fed via its ass pamper boy, Steve Liesman, start banging on about the fact that some sliver of society is being handed extraordinary wealth while the working class has lost 40% of their net worth since 2007, well a big fuck you right back at ya bub! The Fed is very aware that the bottom 80% of Americans own less than 5% of US equity markets. And so the Fed is very aware that its manipulation of stock prices such that it creates immense unearned wealth to those in the markets doesn’t reach the bottom 80%. So why celebrate the results of the stock market price manipulation??

"Clever people in Brussels, in Frankfurt and in Berlin knew back in May 2010 that Greece would never pay back its debts. But they acted as if Greece wasn't bankrupt, as if it just didn't have enough liquid funds," Varoufakis told the documentary.

"In this position, to give the most bankrupt of any state the biggest credit in history, like third class corrupt bankers, was a crime against humanity," said Varoufakis, according to a German translation of his comments.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-12/wests-plan-drop-russia-swift-hilariously-backfires


Here’s what’s utterly hilarious—

On Monday afternoon, not only did SWIFT NOT kick Russia out… but they announced that they were actually giving a BOARD SEAT to Russia.

This is basically the exact opposite of what the US government was pushing for.

Awkward…

The Mystery Of America's Missing Wage Growth Has Been Solved

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-11/mystery-americas-missing-wage-growth-has-been-solved


And there, ladies and gentlemen, is your soaring wage growth: all of it going straight into the pockets of those lucky 20% of America's workers who are there to give orders, to wear business suits, and to sound important. 

Yes - wages are growing, for those who least need said wage growth, the "people in charge."

In other words, precisely all those economists who day after day repeat that, damn what reality says, wages are rising.

Well, guess what: they are absolutely right... when referring to their own wages! It is the small matter of everyone else's wages that they are dead wrong about

The National-Security State’s ISIS Racket

by Jacob G. Hornberger

http://fff.org/2015/02/26/national-security-states-isis-racket/


The perpetual crises and fear-mongering are not a new phenomenon. We saw it throughout the Cold War, when the same fear-mongering was being done about communists that is now being done about ISIS, terrorists, and Muslims.

If we don’t stop the communists from infiltrating Latin America, we were told, it won’t be long before Americans are speaking communist. Cuba is a communist beachhead, they repeatedly said, one that was determined to turn the rest of Latin America and then the United States Red. ---

It’s all just a fear-mongering racket, one designed to keep the cancerous tumor known as the national-security state, along with its vast army of “defense” plunderers and looters, attached to the body politic, where it is sucking the lifeblood out of the American people.

What a racket. It’s amazing that so many Americans continue to fall for it.


vw comment:  he has it EXACTLY right.  I was there and can and will testify that he is "spot on".  What a colossal waste and misallocation of resources.  No one will care until there is no food on your table to feed your children and loved ones, as history repeats itself yet once again.  But, guess what.  That's too late.  Too bad, huh ?  WHAT A SHAM !!

vw comment:  this is REALLY BIG NEWS ! Our reckless haughty arrogant behavior has caused Russia and China to move forward faster and faster and faster with their plans of getting our from under U.S. dollar hegemony. This probably does not bode well for all of the rest of us.  Keeping a close eye on this story.  Am sure there will be more to come, SOON !!

The Last, Great Run For The U.S. Dollar, The Death Of The Euro And 74 Trillion In Currency Derivatives At Risk

http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/last-great-run-u-s-dollar-death-euro-74-trillion-currency-derivatives-risk


A rapidly rising U.S. dollar is extremely deflationary for the overall global economy.

This is a huge red flag, and yet hardly anyone is talking about it.


vw comment:  CORRECTION PLEASE !!  Jim Willie (and others) have been warning about this for past several years.  Jim predicted it and has been waiting for it to happen as he has warned his subscribers and listeners, repeatedly.

CFR: Support Al Qaeda to Defeat ISIS

vw comment:  isn't this the same ploy being used against Americans with their very fake "two party" system ?  i.e. controlled opposition, anyone?  Let me remind you that Al Quaeda (created by USA) and ISIS (created by USA) are one and the same thing.  What nonsense.  One can only wonder what kind of lying mental mush these people use for "brains".

Sheldon Adelson – The Dangerous American Oligarch Behind Benjamin Netanyahu

http://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2015/03/09/sheldon-adelson-the-dangerous-american-oligarch-behind-benjamin-netanyahu/#more-21897


Billionaire casino mogul and conservative donor Sheldon Adelson 

“What are we going to negotiate about? What I would say is, ‘Listen, you see that desert out there? I want to show you something,'” Adelson said at Yeshiva University. “You pick up your cellphone, and you call somewhere in Nebraska, and you say, ‘okay, let it go.’ So there’s an atomic weapon goes over — ballistic missiles — in the middle of the desert that doesn’t hurt a soul.”


vw comment:  so, an Israel-firster mobster casino mogul is calling the shots ? 

 Is it just me, or doesn't being a billionarie casino mogul mean that you are a gangster, by definition.  

And that your main business is in corrupting very ignorant and stupid people who cannot figure out that "the fix is in" i.e. the house will always win, which means you, poor dupe, will ALWAYS lose ?  

What a human cesspool.  

Why does anyone even give this man the time of day, much less kow-tow to him.  

That alone says more than I ever could with innumerable words and paragraphs.  Corrupting our nation and our youth, anyone ?  

Creating a mobster gambling philosophy nationwide.  

And this is supposed to be a good thing?  NOT !!

Gangsters made so much off of the pretended drug war that they were forced to "go legit" and take over all of the major financial institutions and insurance companies.

Gangsters became banksters.

Oh, how fitting.

Just goes to show how phoney this multi-generational, pretended "war on drugs" has been all along, wouldn't you think ?

I don't call it the "The Mob Full Employment Act" for nothing.

Think it's time to wake up yet ?

Then wake up, already !!

Inbox zero: The Hillary Clinton e-mails, by the numbers

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2015/03/10/the-hillary-clinton-e-mails-by-the-numbers/


31,380 of the e-mails were not turned over because they were deemed to be "private, personal records." ---

During the news conference, Clinton said she "chose not to keep" those personal, private e-mails.  


vw comment:  how's that for transparency and accountability ?

The fact that she is considered the leading contender for Democratic nomination, following her numerous abysmal failures while on the government dole shows just how polluted and compromised our so-called two-party system has become.  What a cesspool.

Another Bush or Clinton running for the highest office as leading contender ?

Surely you jest !!

Republicans Overreach: Part Deux

by Jim Lobe

The Washington Bureau Chief of the international news agency, Inter Press Service

http://www.lobelog.com/republican-overreach-part-deux/


So let’s be clear: all the commentary and Israeli spin in the Times and elsewhere suggesting that Bibi’s speech had subtly signaled an openness to an agreement with Iran that settles for less than the total dismantling of its nuclear program, including its enrichment capabilities, is, to put it bluntly, bullshit.

The CIA's torturers and the leaders who approved their actions must face the law

Chelsea E Manning

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2015/mar/09/cia-torture-leaders-aprroved-must-face-the-law


Even the most junior level intelligence officials know that this is, and has been, the case for decades.

Yet, despite such knowledge, in response to the horrific attacks on the US in New York, Virginia and over Pennsylvania on 9/11, the US developed and applied techniques (now public knowledge due to the recent US Senate report commonly referred to as the Senate Torture Report) that sought to inflict severe mental pain and suffering, or the threat of pain and suffering, on detainees in the custody of the CIA and portions of the Department of Defense. These programs were administered by officers acting under the color of law.

Shutting Down AIPAC 

Removing Israel from American politics 

By Philip Giraldi

http://www.unz.com/article/shutting-down-aipac/


from the posted comments: 

Trite to say, but it isn’t about the Israelis. It’s about three forms of rot in the US that make us susceptible to internal and external manipulation. 

1. American venality and hyper-atomisation. As America becomes even more atomised and social breakdown continues, this problem will become even worse. We aren’t a community, we are a rat-race of self-righteous, myopically greedy individuals who preen ourselves as we justify our pursuit of wealth, making heroes of social climbers. ---

2. Low-church Protestantism, particularly the Dispensationalist heresy, is another obvious cause of this shameful situation. It is 2014 and so far no rapture, but creatures like Hal Lindsey prove themselves to be quite adaptable. If there is a benefit to the cultural Balkanization of the US it is that Evangelicalism and Dispensationalism will be weakened, of course the damage is already done. I’m not sure why people don’t taunt rapture-believing evangelicals more on this. The clock is ticking, ticking since 1948. For those not aware, a big part of the rapture myth is that the generation that saw Israel become a nation will see the rapture. Thus the excitement in 1967 and in the late 1980′s, but, interestingly, the interest is more muted circa 2008. People getting embarrassed?


vw comment:  Oh, that's right, the 2,000,000 wedge voter pretended "Christians" who voted in Bush Jr., even after knowing that he was a mass murderer and torturer.  Is that who we are talking about here ?  Yes ??  In case you have missed it, let me be PERFECTLY CLEAR about this.  You cannot be a follower of Jesus Christ and be a butcher of humans, a mass murderer, and a torturer.  It is simply oxymoronic.  And those who support and enable such behavior are a little more than suspect.  Especially when they have HUGE FINANCIAL MOTIVE = $$$ = 666 !!

What Do These Two Charts Have In Common?

http://dollarcollapse.com/currency-war-2/what-do-these-two-charts-have-in-common/


The premise of a currency war is that by devaluing its currency a country is able to sell things overseas more cheaply, which gooses its growth at the expense of its trading partners. 

If it actually works that way, then you’d expect this chart of the euro plunging against the dollar…
