Corporate Media Gatekeepers Protect The Western 1% From Panama Leak

panama-papers-worlds-elite-700x350

Whoever leaked the Mossack Fonseca papers appears motivated by a genuine desire to expose the system that enables the ultra wealthy to hide their massive stashes, often corruptly obtained and all involved in tax avoidance. These Panamanian lawyers hide the wealth of a significant proportion of the 1%, and the massive leak of their documents ought to be a wonderful thing. Continue reading

Billionaire George Soros spent $33MILLION bankrolling Ferguson demonstrators to create ‘echo chamber’ and drive national protests

George Soros

Liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint.

The handouts, revealed in tax filings from Soros’s private foundation, were given to dozens of different groups which weighed in on the crisis.

Organizers from professional groups in Washington, D.C., and New York were bussed into the Missouri town to co-ordinate messaging and lobby to news media to cover events using the billionaire’s funding.

Gonna Have To Face It, You’re Addicted To Zionism

It’s a general rule that people with addictions usually don’t keep their “issues” private. They’ve just GOT to be lettin’ it all hang out–LARGE AND IN CHARGE–and in your face. Whether it’s the economic problems they bring upon their families by losing job after job or pulverizing innocent people with their cars or the life of crime they eventually find themselves neck-deep in, addiction is seldom a victimless situation, despite what the victimizers themselves claim. It is a simple issue of gravity–Rather than pull themselves up to a higher level, they must instead drag everyone else down to theirs.

And it only gets worse as the substances get more powerful and society becomes less resilient and more interconnected. As one domino falls, it lands on its neighbor, and so on, and so on.

The problem for us as a society trying to get a handle on all this is that the conventional wisdom limits it all to powders, liquids, seeds, leaves, etc, and the paraphernalia used in transporting them from point A to point B with needles, pipes or tiny straws.

The truth however is that the really dangerous ones, the ones that don’t just wipe out entire families but rather entire nations are those that enter the bloodstream of consciousness as ideas–irrational ones–that by their very nature are intrinsically destructive to any normally-functioning/healthy society. Consider the lone nut with the doomsday mindset who’s gotten hooked on the idea that progress is bad and decides that the final solution to it all is to bring the house down around him by dumping a computer virus into the “town well” known as the internet.

They are everywhere, these dangerous intellectual substances that pollute the mind, causing it to mutate from a life-giving/life-sustaining miracle-machine into a weapon of mass destruction. And of all of them out there on the street, the one most responsible for turning God’s green earth into one giant ghetto and that’s caused the most damage–both real and collateral–is the one sitting atop all major world affairs these days and, it is Judaism/Zionism. Truly, as current events are proving now on a daily basis, it is the deadliest of all addictions.

The chemical makeup of this highly-addictive poison is simple–pure, distilled, undiluted and uncut narcissism. In it’s rawest form it is the idea that the creator of the entire universe–God–loves one tiny, microscopic sect of people above and beyond everything and everyone else. Not only does He love them more, He’s given them the keys to the kingdom and the means of holding on to those keys, including (but not limited to) stealing, lying, cheating, exploitation and–when necessary–murdering entire nations and races of people if it results in something good coming the addict’s way. Like the remorseless crack-head who sticks a knife into an innocent old lady in order to steal her purse and walk away with a fistful of dollars, the folks under the influence of this mind-destroying drug known as Jewish thinking have done it over and over again, literally for the last 6,000 years. The only difference between the gangstas of yesteryear vs the gangstas of today is that today’s thugs are not armed with spears and swords but rather nukes, deadly biological agents that could destroy the planet in a matter of minutes and total control of the world’s economy.

And the REALLY amazing thing about all of it is that–despite the very-visible destruction these dope dealers and dopeheads have brought on the world throughout history, no one of any real substance has bothered looking into the matter with anything other than junk science. Those who should have known better–the doctors of the soul charged with maintaining public health standards never warned us. Whether we’re talking about presidents, prime ministers, princes, popes, priests, preachers, professors, pastors or politicians, the fact is that the bribes they were taking from the manufacturers and distributors of this stuff was just too tempting and as a result they all kept their mouths shut.

There is no such thing as “recreational use’ Of Judaism/Zionism. Try it once and you’re hooked. One need only look at today’s “Christian” addicts as proof positive of this. Supposed followers of the Prince of Peace, now having shot themselves up with the Ecstasy of Judaistic thinking and now they are simply out of their minds, incapable of rational thought and as much out for innocent blood as if they were a race of vampires. Try taking the needle out of their arm by telling them how diabolical the wars being fought against innocent Muslim men, women and children are and see for yourself, as you find yourself fighting for your life against a brood of vipers and a pack of rabid dogs.

The truth and the tragedy of it all however is that “man the wise” should have known it would come to this. It was a no-brainer from the beginning. After all, the whole affair began when one guy named Abraham–wandering around the desert as high as kite–suddenly started hearing voices in his head telling him he is Superman, and then the next thing you know he’s got a knife to his son’s throat and is about to kill him and incinerate his body in appeasing the voices in his head. It was all downhill after that.

The problem today is that no one recognizes this poison for what it is. The snake oil salesmen peddle it as the cure for all society’s ills and the people keep ingesting it. Even when its deadly effects are manifested in all the carnage that occurs in places such as Gaza, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan and so on, an army of detractors and spin artists come stampeding forward to get their faces and voices in front of the mic to tell the world that the product itself is “safe” and that the latest tragedy is all the result of something else.

Take for example the recent comments from Ovadiah Yosef, one of the most powerful dealers of this junk known as Judaism in the world. In his capacity as capo of one of the most powerful political parties in Israel–the orthodox party ‘Shas’–he was recently heard begging God for YET ANOTHER (imagine that) Holocaust of non-Jews, as if we haven’t seen enough already as of late. “May our enemies (the Arabs) and all evil people who hate us be put to an end and be made gone from the world”were his exact words, specifying his preferred brand of “perishment” with something found–not in the hated Koran, guys and gals, but rather–in the Jews’ Old Testament, saying “The Holy One, Blessed be He, should smite them with plague, them and these Palestinians”.

Now, lest some think the elderly man is just succumbing to the effects of his advancing years, keep in mind this isn’t the first time Ovadiah (or his colleagues) has stunk the place up with such comments. Nary a week goes by where he isn’t polluting and corrupting the minds and hearts of his flock of wolves with the poison that killing Arabs is biblically-sanctioned business for good, bible-believing Jews. One of his more memorable quotes–an oldie but a goodie for sure–has him saying “It is forbidden to be merciful to them…You must send missiles to them and annihilate them. They are evil and damnable.”

Now, for those (and particularly in America) who have already given themselves over whole-hog to the anti-Islamic/anti-Arab hysteria sweeping the West like an epidemic of swine flu these days and who are therefore not particularly bothered by the ol’ rebbe’s comments concerning Palestinians, pay close attention to what we’re saying here–He is referring to you as well, due to the accidental circumstances of your birth as non-Jews.

See, this is the rub that today’s Judeophiles don’t seem to understand. Hardcore, died-in-the-wool Chosenite junkies such as the rebbe and his followers are non-discriminating when it comes to their hatred. Using their religion as the recipe book in creating this deadly stew of pathological narcissism, they are equal opportunity bigots whose contempt for “the other” operates without borders or distinction, and you–today’s brain-dead Gentile worshippers of all things Jewish–can be rest assured that after you have outlived your usefulness in fighting Israel’s wars for her that these same people you’ve made into graven images will set their sights (and their fangs) on doing to you what they are doing to the “AYRABS” today. Just something for you to consider.

Now, as shocked as some may be at hearing comments of this kind coming from a “distinguished” Jewish religious leader, the fact of the matter is this–it’s as new as the world’s oldest profession.Israel’s religious and political leaders have been saying things like this since, well, since the release of best sellers such as Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy and Numbers, when guys such as Moses, Joshua and the rest of the gang quickly realized how much dough could be had by murdering people and stealing their land from them.

And yet, despite the fact this latest display on the part of the rebbe (and others) is proof positive of the destructive properties of this poison known as Judaism, what is the reaction from around the world to this? For the most part, the aforementioned public health officials ignore it while others chime in to say that all is well and that this latest side-effect is not the norm. Groups such as Neturei Karta, the “good rabbis” who “oppose Zionism” (sort of) made the ridiculous claim that the statements by the rebbe were “not representative of true Judaism”. The White House characterized the remarks as‘offensive’ and “harmful” to the efforts of peace.

Keep in mind that, as we said earlier, poisonous statements such as these from Ovadiah Josef are (and have been FOR YEARS) made in one form or another by Jewish leaders in Israel on a daily basis, and yet there is no mind paid to them nor an ounce of commentary.

The only possible explanation as to why some interests now feel it necessary to make comment on matters such as these is that technology–namely the internet–has outpaced their ability to keep the destructive properties of this stuff under wraps as they have in years past. Now that the average person–from New York to New Guinea–has instantaneous access to raw information at literally the touch of a button, the conspiracy of silence now must be replaced with a conspiracy of lying.

Now, as difficult a thing as this may be to do, let us–for the sake of historical accuracy and medical science, take just a brief stroll down memory lane and consider a few crime scenes where this drug known as Judaism played a factor. I apologize for having to do this, but in the interests of accurate accounting, it’s got to be done–

Remember this?

  

Or this?

–White phosphorus being rained down upon helpless Christian and Muslim Arabs in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. Thousands were killed or wounded and addicts of Judaism worldwide, both as individuals and as groups–either defended or stayed quiet about it.

 Or this–

  

A little Palestinian boy whose name we don’t know but no doubt loved beyond words by many people, SHOT TWICE by some scumbag Jewish assassin during the same aforementioned “Cast Lead”. Addicts of Judaism worldwide, both as individuals and as groups–either defended or stayed quiet about it.

 

Oh, and how ‘bout this one, featuring these nice Jewish girls autographing warheads MADE IN AMERICA with messages dripping with hatred such as “From Israel, With Love” before they were launched against helpless Arab families–Christian and Muslim–In Israel’s war against Lebanese civilians in 2006. Addicts of Judaism worldwide, both as individuals and as groups–either defended or stayed quiet about it.

 

Oh, here was a good one–IDF soldiers wearing t-shirts laughing at and celebrating what they do to Arabs on a daily basis. One t-shirt not pictured here featured an Arab mother kneeling at the grave of her dead child and a caption written in the typically callous, snickering, sneering tone that is the trademark of “Jewish humor” reading “Should have used a condom”. Another one, equally horrific in its absolute barbarity, featured the reticles of a sniper rifle’s telescopic sight aimed at the belly of a pregnant Arab, the caption reading “1 shot, 2 Kills.” Addicts of Judaism worldwide, both as individuals and as groups–either defended or stayed quiet about it.

Definitely one of my favorites taking place during Operation Cast Lead–Dopeheads coming out to watch the ensuing Holocaust. Notice–no looks of shock or moral outrage. It might as well be a comedy number or some display of war porn to which they are hooked. Addicts of Judaism worldwide, both as individuals and as groups–either defended or stayed quiet about it.

 

Here is a recent top 10 hit that made the rounds–Eden Abergil, an IDF chick who posted these adorable pix of her with her captured prey saying ‘I would gladly kill Arabs – even slaughter them’. Addicts of Judaism worldwide, both as individuals and as groups–either defended or stayed quiet about it.

And finally, the “coup de grace” as far as I am concerned concerning how Ovadiah Yosef’s comments are not “representative of true Judaism”–IDF members and their Jewish cohorts gathered in front of the Torah as they read (no doubt from Leviticus, Deuteronomy or one of the other books that sanction the wholesale slaughter of non-Israelites) in search of “the right words” in justifying the slaughter of “the other”. Addicts of Judaism worldwide, both as individuals and as groups–either defended or stayed quiet about it.

Now, as much as these things cause the blood to boil in normal, non-genocidal people, the fact of the matter is this–I don’t condemn the rabbi’s comments. In fact, I am jumping for joy whenever he or one of his fellow travelers shits their pants like this in front of the entire world. I wish they would ALL do it on a regular basis.

 Why? Because the first step in any recovery/rehab program is to–

(1) recognize the toxicity of the substance in question, and

(2) admit there is a ‘problem’.

For too many years–6,000 to be exact–mankind has refused to look at this “wonder drug” known as Judaism and consider its inevitable side-effects. The reason for this is that the shylocks, shysters, and schmoozers peddling this stuff for 60 centuries have had free reign to lie about both its dangerous properties and deadly inevitable side-effects. Therefore when someone such as the rebbe Ovadiah Josef lets loose with a slip of the tongue and reveals to all what kind of creature truly lurks under the pretty facade, we should all fall on our knees and thank the Almighty for this little piece of heaven-sent truth, as ugly as it may be.

As I consider the situation we face today, I cannot help but think back to the lyrics of that song by the singer Robert Palmer (may he rest in peace) “Addicted To Love”–

The lights are on, but you’re not home
Your mind…is not your own
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is all it takes
You can’t sleep, you can’t eat
There’s no doubt, you’re in deep
Your throat is tight, you can’t breathe
Another kiss is all you need

You like to think that you’re immune to this stuff, oh yeah…
But it’s closer to the truth to say you can’t get enough

You see the signs, but you can’t read
You’re runnin’ at–a different speed
Your heart beats in double time
Another kiss and you’ll be mine

A one track mind, you can’t be saved
Oblivion is all you crave
If there’s some left for you,
You don’t mind if you do

You like to think that you’re immune to this stuff, oh yeah
But it’s closer to the truth to say you can’t get enough,

You know you’re gonna have to face it, you’re addicted to love…

Oh, if only  love were the addiction in question…‘What a wonderful world’ as that other famous old song goes.

 But when it comes to Israel and her people, we ain’t talkin’ ‘bout love here, unless of course it’s a case of “Magic mirror, on the wall…who’s the fairest of them all?..’

 Jewish thinking–it’s not some miracle drug, it’s a poison, and if we entertain the idea of drying ourselves out and transforming our ghetto from a crime-ridden slum into a peaceful, productive neighborhood, we’re gonna have to face it–

We’re addicted.

Rockefeller impostor convicted of murder

PictureA notorious Rockefeller impostor has been found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of a man whose bones were found buried beneath a California home.

Christian Gerhartsreiter was tried 28 years after the disappearance of newlyweds John and Linda Sohus in a heavily circumstantial cold case. Much of the prosecution’s evidence focused on the strange behavior of the man who adopted many names including Clark Rockefeller. He masqueraded as an heir to the fabled oil fortune for 20 years.

The verdict was reached Wednesday after the jury deliberated about a day.

Authorities said Gerhartsreiter was a German immigrant who lived another life long ago, occupying a guest cottage at the home of Sohus’ mother in the ritzy suburb of San Marino. He was known then as Chris Chichester and intimated he was of royal lineage. He joined the church, befriended residents and told some he was a film student.

A friend said Linda Sohus once described the tenant in the cottage owned by John’s mother as “creepy” and said she and her husband never spoke to him.

The town folk didn’t connect him with the disappearance of the Sohus couple in 1985, but shortly after they vanished, so did he.

No trace of Linda has been found but John’s bones were unearthed during excavation of a swimming pool at the San Marino property in 1994. With no clues, the mystery went cold again.

But across the country, a man variously known as Chris Crowe, Chip Smith and Clark Rockefeller was inventing new lives for himself.

This impostor wormed his way into high society and talked his way into important jobs. He married a wealthy woman and controlled her funds, but his identity unraveled when he kidnapped their daughter during a custody dispute. She testified that he became increasingly paranoid when police begin inquiring about him.

When he was unmasked, he became the subject of magazine articles, true crime books and TV movies that sought to explore his bizarre story and get to the heart of the man behind the pseudonyms.

The resulting publicity led California authorities to revisit the Sohus disappearance. They realized the man in custody in Boston was not an heir to the Rockefeller fortune but was the man who had lived in San Marino decades ago.

Already serving time for the kidnapping of his young daughter in a Boston custody dispute, Gerhartsreiter was close to the end of his sentence and headed for freedom when the murder charge changed that. After a quarter century, authorities believed they had linked him to the disappearance of his old neighbor, Sohus.

Defense attorneys suggested that Linda Sohus, not their client, killed her husband. But no motive was offered for her or Gerhartsreiter to have killed the young man.

Prosecutors filled in the blanks of the defendant’s whereabouts during the decades of his disappearance. But some details were unlikely ever to be explained.

He chose not to testify in his own defense and much of the trial testimony came from people now hobbled by age who knew him in San Marino as Chris Chichester, a stranger with a murky past.

IRS to Reduce Audits of Big Businesses by 18%

The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University has released a report, IRS Audits Slump, Staff Down Long-term Impact Uncertain:

The IRS plans to expend 18% percent less effort auditing businesses with assets of $10 million or more compared with just two years ago, according to a very timely IRS planning document.

For the same period, the IRS also projects a 14% drop in the amount of available time for the specialized revenue agents it needs to conduct these audits in FY 2013 — the year ending on September 30 — compared to what it was in FY 2011.

These declines — neither of which take into account the probable impact of the sequestration cuts in the months ahead — were described in a special agency report now being made available to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) on a monthly basis. This series of internal IRS management reports — the last one covers the period ending in January 2013 — are provided by the IRS thanks to a court order granted TRAC as a result of a suit filed under the Freedom of Information Act.

US and UK public reject stronger military support for Syrian rebels

(Guardian) -Americans and Britons are deeply sceptical about the idea of arming Syria‘s rebels and the possibility of sending western troops into the country, according to a bilateral poll.

Despite the escalating civil war, growing casualty figures and a rising tide of refugees flooding out of Syria, there is little appetite for more robust action than the current approach of providing “non-lethal support” to the rebels, the YouGov poll found.

There have been increasing demands on Capitol Hill to arm the opponents of the Assad regime or intervene more directly, and this week Barack Obama toughened his own rhetoric amid contested claims about Damascus using chemical weapons. But the new binational survey – produced for YouGov-Cambridge, the polling company’s academic thinktank – finds US voters opposed to the idea of supplying munitions by a 29-point margin: 45% against to 16% in favour.

Identical questions were posed in Britain, where David Cameron has, with the French president, François Hollande, recently tried and failed to persuade the EU to lift its arms embargo. But the British public emerges as even more strongly against: 57% oppose arming the rebels and 16% are in favour.

In both the UK and the US, opposition to arming the rebels is marked on the right as well as the left of the political spectrum: 52% of American Republicans and 63% of British Conservatives are against supplying arms.

Any thought of sending western troops into Syria would also be badly received – especially in the UK. By a 32-point margin (55%-23%) Britons reject the idea of sending in UK and allied troops to protect civilians. The anti-intervention lead rises to 59 points (68%-9%) if the aim were “overthrowing President Bashar al-Assad”.

In the US too, proposals to put boots on the ground would run up against public opinion. Americans lean 33%-27% against sending in troops “to protect civilians”, and are more decisively against directly enforcing regime change, splitting 42%-16% against. Although more Republicans (22%) than Democrats (14%) would be prepared to support the latter, the partisan difference are not as great might have expected given the continuing divisions over the war to topple Saddam Hussein.

Syria_interventions.png Syria_interventions.png
A decade on from the invasion of 2003, YouGov reaffirms the verdict of other pollsters and finds a rough two-to-one (53%-27%) balance of Britons saying that the war launched by George Bush and Tony Blair was wrong rather than right.

US opinion is more evenly divided, with those who believe the war was right holding a slim 41%-38% edge. And whereas in Britain, opposition is consistent across supporters of different parties, in the US the political divide is stark. Democrats judge the war a mistake by a 53%-23% margin, but Republicans remain even more convinced that it was right, splitting 72% to 12% in favour.

While no political faction in either Britain or the US is comparably belligerent in connection with Syria, the mood is not isolationist either. There are strong majorities in favour of the official policy on both sides of the Atlantic, of providing the rebels with “non-lethal support”.

In the US the Obama administration has concentrated on softer support, such as food and medical supplies, but the question’s wording also referred to “armoured vehicles and body armour”, the sort of harder-edged interpretation of “non-lethal” supplies being emphasised by London.

Even with the proposition put in these terms, Americans split 45%-24% in favour of providing the supplies, a 21-point margin. In Britain, the 57%-22% pro-intervention majority on this count is even more emphatic, at 35 points.

For pro-intervention hawks, such as Senator John McCain in the US and increasingly Cameron himself in Britain, there is another encouraging finding. Respondents on both sides of the Atlantic are in favour of “enforcing a no-fly zone over Syria so the Syrian air force cannot attack rebels or civilians”. In the UK that proposition wins public support by a 43-point margin, with 61% in favour and 18% against. In the US there is a 50% to 18% majority behind the same proposition.

If these results point to mixed public attitudes to Syria, YouGov-Cambridge’s detailed analysis on the legacy of Iraq also defies easy characterisation.

Britons are disinclined to believe the conflict made the world a safer place – only 14% say so, as against 38% who judge it has made the world more dangerous and 40% who say it made little difference. They are likewise disinclined to believe the invasion made the lives of ordinary Iraqis better (only 24% think so), and by 71% to 12% they also believe Iraq will remain “permanently unstable” as opposed to becoming a “peaceful democracy”. Americans are somewhat more sanguine on all these counts, in line with their less hostile overall verdict on the war, but in the United States, too, a clear majority of 56% believes Iraq is set for permanent instability.

When memories of Saddam Hussein are invoked, however, the picture changes: by 41% to 21% Britons judge that despite the suffering of war Iraqis would have been even worse off under the rule of Saddam, and in the US opinion leans the same way, by 46% to 17%. These final results seem out of kilter with the UK’s anti-war sentiment in particular. It could be that some respondents are reasoning that while Iraqi life would have been worse under Saddam he might by now have been brought down by other means – or it could be that people give different answers to similar questions phrased in different ways.

YouGov-Cambridge surveyed 1,684 British adults online on 10 and 11 March and a further 1,962 on 13 and 14 March, and 1,022 American adults online from 12 to 14 March. The figures have been weighted and are representative of British and American adults aged 18 or over

Ambassador: US providing $114 million in aid to Syrian rebels

 

syrianrebels

 

(Theuglytruth and TheHill) – The Obama administration is providing the Syrian opposition with $114 million in aid, more than previously revealed, to help topple Bashar Assad, U.S. Ambassador Robert Ford told Congress on Wednesday.

Ford briefed House appropriators in a closed-door hearing following Secretary of State John Kerry’s announcement last month that America would provide $60 million in direct food and medicine assistance to the Syrian Opposition Coalition. The aid, Ford said, is in addition to $54 million in communications gear and other aid already offered to “disparate Syrian opposition groups across the country to build a network of ethnically and religiously diverse civilian activists.”

“Preserving national unity and laying the foundation for a free Syria that respects the rights of all its citizens is essential if we are to secure a Syria that helps rather than threatens stability in the heart of the Middle East,” Ford told the committee, according to his opening statement, which was obtained by The Hill. “Collapse and fragmentation of the Syrian state or its takeover by extremists would worsen the risks associated with chemical weapons security, terrorist bases, and new refugee flows inundating neighboring states. Those outcomes would directly threaten our interests.”

He said the State Department would create a small grants initiative the Syrian Opposition Council would use to help local councils meet the needs of their citizens, including “supporting the work of these new governing institutions and helping them undertake service delivery projects for their communities.” And the U.S. Agency for International Development will create two programs designed to have “immediate impact”: One to provide short-term assistance for urgent needs, such as fuel, heaters, and nutritional and educational supplies for children; the other, to support strategic, longer-term needs such as repairing schools, local power, and sanitation.

“The membership is very concerned and the ambassador was very straightforward in what he had to say,” said Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas), the chairwoman of the Appropriations subcommittee on foreign operations. “A lot of questions, there aren’t answers to yet because we don’t know the end-game.”

Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) said he pressed for answers about the White House’s decision to override last summer’s recommendations from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to arm the rebels.

“Those are the concerns I had,” he said.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who represents a number of Syrian-Americans, has pressed the Department of Homeland Security to grant emergency temporary visas to the nearly nearly six thousand Syrian nationals with approved immigrant petitions.

“We’re trying to be as aggressive as we can without taking the risk that the assistance we give could be used against us down the road,” he said. “We continue to probe on the best way to assist the opposition.”

Speculation rife over death of 9/11 truther Phillip Marshall

1aa
(Digital Journal) -9/11 truther Phillip Marshall penned conspiracy theories in  his books, believing the Bush administration worked with Saudi intelligence to  facilitate the attack on the twin towers. Now Marshall’s own death in February  has turned into a conspiracy theory.

Digital  Journal reported the death of Phillip Marshall and his two teenage children  was determined to be a murder-suicide. However, the death of Marshall has led to  speculation that he and his children were the victims of a professional murder  involving the CIA as details of his own past involvement with CIA black  operations are revealed.

Wayne Masden, former national security  officer, claims he is “100 percent certain that 9/11 investigator and  author Philip Marshall and his two children were killed in a black ops hit.” He  said “the crime scene was illegally cleaned up by professionals.”

Conspiracy theories regarding  Marshall’s death are at odds with the official account so far released.

The Calaveras County Sheriffs  Department claimed “Philip Marshall killed his two teenage kids, his dog, and  himself” according to 21st Century Wire, further noting “the police have no  motive, no suicide note, and no indication that Marshall fit the profile of  someone who murdered the two people closest to him.”

Toxicology and pathology reports are  still pending the Santa Barbara Review reports, even though police have  already labelled the three deaths as murder-suicide.

According to the EU Times, Marshall, who believed the reported account of the  death of Osama bin Laden was a farce, was working on his fourth book which could  be his death warrant.

 

The United States of Murder: A cancer on the world

(PressTV) The US government, and its bankster owners, have been overthrowing and/or murdering the best leaders in Latin America, and the world, for decades. Iran’s Mossadegh, Guatemala’s Arbenz, the Dominican Republic’s Trujillo and Bosch, Ecuador’s Velasco and Roldos, Zaire’s Lumumba, Indonesia’s Sukarno, Cambodia’s Sahounek, Chile’s Allende, and Panama’s Torrijos are just a few examples.

The same killers, and the institutional forces they represent, murder the best American leaders too. John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Senator Paul Wellstone are notable victims. Two excellent books have appeared in recent years proving, to any reasonable reader, that a shadow government working through the CIA, FBI, and organized crime killed JFK and Dr. King. Those books are JFK and the Unspeakable by James Douglass, and An Act of State by William Pepper.

When the most powerful empire on earth insists on resolving disputes through murder, rather than reasoned dialogue, that empire has become a cancer on the world.

The US government’s “kill first, ask questions later” policy is exemplified by its drone attacks on political opponents. Senator Lindsey Graham recently admitted that the US has murdered more than 4,700 political opponents around the world in drone strikes. One of them, Anwar al-Awlaki – a US citizen whose criticisms of the US government were factually correct and morally justified – was silenced not by counter-arguments (apparently there are none) but by a drone strike on his house. His teenage son was also murdered. Mr. al-Awlaki had not even been accused of any crime, much less charged or convicted.

He was killed for one reason and one reason only: To silence his eloquent voice.

The Empire’s preference for killing over dialogue is obvious to anyone who compares the current US military budget to those of other countries. The US spends $711 billion per year on organized mass killing (i.e., the military). The combined total for China, Russia, the UK, France, Japan, India, Saudi Arabia, Germany, Brazil, Italy, South Korea, Australia, and Canada is only $695 billion annually.

And the official US military budget of $711 billion is just the tip of the iceberg. A gigantic “black budget” funded by bankers like the Rothschilds, whose net worth is said to be over $100 trillion, using leveraged criminal activity including the $1.5-trillion-per-year money laundering industry, pushes the real annual cost of empire into the trillions. It is these black budget funds, not official military budgets, that are used to build the most advanced and secret killing technologies – the kind of technologies that were recently employed to afflict the Empire’s six leading Latin American enemies with cancer.

This gargantuan outlay on the Empire’s killing machine is a huge drain on the planet’s resources. And it isn’t just the US murder budgets, official and unofficial, that suck the life-blood of the planet. The US war budget forces other countries to hemorrhage their own money on death and destruction. Other nations would spend vastly less on defense if the US were not constantly threatening, bullying, and invading sovereign nations all over the world…while selling weapons to its puppet “friends” and slaughtering its more principled “enemies.”

Obviously, the American exceptionalists are correct. The United States of America is an exceptional country: It is exceptionally evil.

But when they say America is the one indispensable country, they are wrong. That would be like saying that a cancerous tumor is the most indispensable part of the body.

The US bankster empire needs to be surgically removed from the face of the planet.

How did the USA, once a self-proclaimed light unto the world, become a festering tumor?

Before 9/11, American policy had a certain balance: Alongside its psychopathic imperial behavior were occasional flashes of genuine concern for human rights, democracy, and other humanitarian ideals.

But then on 9/11 – as the neocon propagandists never cease to remind us – everything changed. Human rights, and the US Constitution itself, were thrown into the proverbial dustbin of history. The USA became like Mordor in Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: An empire of pure, unadulterated evil.

One of the world’s leading moral philosophers, John McMurtry of the University of Guelph, has brilliantly analyzed this process. In his essay “The Moral Decoding of 9-11” Professor McMurtry argues that the seeds of evil were planted long before 9/11 brought them to fruition. He describes the murderous “morality” of empire as follows:

“The moral thought system (of the US-bankster empire) is not unlike that of Mein Kampf without the racist rant, camouflaged everywhere in practice by the method of big lies – ‘noble lies’ as Strauss exalts them. The innermost value driver is a perpetual war of dispossession of the weaker for the private transnational money-capital multiplication of the rich.”

John McMurtry sees 9/11 as the epitome of the Straussian neoconservative philosophy, which exalts bullying, murder, and the big lie, and scorns reasoned dialogue and cooperation. What McMurtry doesn’t say is that the Straussian neoconservative takeover of the USA on 9/11 was a coup d’état by Israel against America. The Israelis rely on lies and murder, and scorn reasoned dialogue, for a very good reason: The existence of the apartheid Zionists in Palestine cannot be successfully defended by reasoned argument. Its only defense is mendacity, torture, and mass slaughter.

By contrast, America’s core values – individual liberty, religious and ethnic pluralism, democratic republicanism, equality of opportunity, and the rule of law – can only be defended by reasoned dialogue. “Defended” by big lies and mass murder, these values die an abject death.

Will planet earth ever be cured of its two biggest cancerous tumors, the US and Israeli empires? Will the USA return to its core values and abandon its attempt to dominate the planet?

I believe that this planetary cancer can be cured – but only through a very painful treatment: The official, public establishment of the truth about 9/11.

Americans Protest Against AIPAC Conference

 

Presstv.ir March 7, 2013

With mock settlements, an apartheid wall and chants urging for cuts in funding to Israel, protesters collected outside of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee commonly called AIPAC.

They’ve come here from around the country for what they say is an important issue largely ignored by US media. Activist groups such as CODEPINK and others spring into activist mode every year to protest the Israel lobby’s annual policy conference.

AIPAC is considered the most powerful lobbying group in support of Israel. The power comes from money. The committee operates on a budget of $67 million each fiscal year. Some of that money goes to politicians through smaller organizations and committees, many of which support Israeli interests.

There are an estimated 13,000 people who attend the AIPAC conference. It’s a gathering that reportedly attracts more members of the US government than virtually any event other than the President’s State of the Union address.

More cities get military tanks they don’t need

(EndTheLie) -Last month I reported on how Georgia law enforcement agencies have acquired a massive arsenal of military-grade vehicles and weapons through  the Department of Defense. Unfortunately, it’s far from isolated.

Many law enforcement agencies acquire military equipment through the Pentagon’s 1033 program. Police have also acquired military robots through the DoD but they have other  ways to get their hands on armored surveillance vehicles and armored personnel carriers as well.

Indeed, the Department of Homeland Security gave the city of Keene, New  Hampshire, with a population of less than 25,000, $285,933 to buy an armored  counter-attack vehicle called a BearCat, according to Radley Balko.

Keene has had a whopping three murders since 1999 according to City Data and according to the American Civil Liberties  Union (ACLU), the city lied about the need for the tank-like vehicle built by Lenco Industries, Inc.

The ACLU points out that a Keene City Councilmember actually admitted that  the city lied about their need for the BearCat to DHS.

“Our application talked about the danger of domestic terrorism, but that’s  just something you put in the grant application to get the money,” the  councilmember said, according to the ACLU. “What red-blooded American cop isn’t  going to be excited about getting a toy like this? That’s what it comes down  to.”

Another example of this type of completely unnecessary equipment being  acquired by a law enforcement agency can be seen in Richland County, South  Carolina.

With a violent crime rate down 3.7% and property crime down 3.9% compared to last year, Richland doesn’t seem to have a  massive crime problem. Furthermore, many of the crimes there are related to drug  use or gambling, according to the ACLU.

Yet Richland’s Sheriff’s Department for some reason has an armored personnel  carrier they call “The Peacemaker.”

As was reported by Reason in 2008, the armored personnel carrier has a belt-fed  .50-caliber turreted machine gun which even the US military is reluctant to use  on humans.

How exactly a weapon usually reserved for use against armored vehicles will “save lives” is anyone’s guess.

These, like the examples in Georgia are far from isolated.

“Law enforcement agencies throughout the country have sweeping access to military equipment and to billions of  dollars in federal grant money to purchase heavy weaponry designed for overseas  combat missions, as well as access to anti-terrorism tactical training,” the  ACLU reports.

The ACLU recently launched a new project on the militarization of policing in America in response to  this growing trend.

While some may claim this type of equipment is necessary to assure the safety  of officers when facing massive shootouts or similar encounters, in reality, the  use is much more mundane in most cases.

“And in Maryland, the transparency law has shown that police departments in  the state are using SWAT tactics in precisely the ways critics have claimed: to  break into homes to serve warrants on people suspected of low-level drug  crimes,” according to a March 6 article by Radley Balko. “Many times, they’re not  even finding enough contraband to make an arrest. Yet there haven’t been any  calls in the state to reform the way SWAT teams are used.”

The disturbing results of the militarization of police are many. In 2010 a nine-year-old girl was shot in the neck and killed by a  SWAT team.

(Image credit: verifex/Flickr)

Shortly before she was killed, the SWAT team threw a flashbang grenade through the window of her home in Detroit,  Michigan, immediately setting her blanket on fire.

In another incident, Iraq war veteran Jose Guerena was shot 60 times by a  SWAT team when serving a search warrant as part of a multi-house drug  crackdown.

Guerena he picked up his own gun (but didn’t fire it) in an attempt to defend  his family after his wife saw a shadowy figure in their front yard holding a  gun. Police later defended their actions after retracting their claim  that Guerena shot first and declining to say if they found any drugs in his  house.

According to the ACLU, their affiliates in 23 states filed over 255 public  records requests on March 6 with law enforcement agencies and National Guard  offices to “determine the extent to which federal funding and support has fueled  the militarization of state and local police departments.”

More on the ACLU’s new project can be seen here.

Here are Homeland Security’s Top 5 Priorities for Suspicious Activity Reporting This Season

1a

(PublicIntelligence) -A document issued last month by the Department of Homeland Security identifies priorities for the collection of suspicious activity reports from local communities around the U.S.  The document describes “topics of interest” identified by DHS Intelligence and Analysis (DHS/I&A) analysts as priorities for the Winter 2013 period that should be utilized by “law enforcement, first responders, and other homeland security professionals” to improve their reporting of suspicious activity.  The topics of interest include examples of suspicious activities related to each topical area.  They are also accompanied by several tracking numbers identifying the activities within DHS/I&A’s system of Standing Intelligence Needs which “form the foundation for information collection activities within the Department and provide other Intelligence Community (IC) and Homeland Security Enterprise members the ability to focus their collection, analytic, and reporting assets in support of the homeland security mission.”  These numbers are often found in DHS and fusion center bulletins indicating a reported activity’s relation to standing intelligence needs determined by DHS/I&A.  The topics are not in order of importance and DHS/I&A reminds the reader that previous topics “remain relevant” and reports should still be submitted on those issues.

  • Threats to religious or cultural facilities including “verbal ortelephonic threats of violence” or “property damage, including vandalism or arson”.
  • Suspicious activities or incidents associated with state, local, tribal, territorial, or private sector computer networks and Web sites including “denial of service (DoS) attacks against Web sites”, “web page defacement” and “suspicious e-mails that install malware on the network”.
  • Suspicious activities or incidents associated with mass gatherings, and special events including “breaches or attempted intrusions at event locations or related venues”, suspicious “inquiries about security protocols for events or VIPs” and “incidents of suspicious acquisition of explosiveprecursor materials”.
  • Suspicious activities, queries, theft, sabotage, tampering, or vandalism within the transportation sector—including mass transit, aviation, maritime, ground and surface, rail, and pipeline systems including “unusual questions about routes, capacities, peak travel time, training, and security”.
  • Efforts to artfully conceal improvised explosive devices in innocuous items, such as satchels, backpacks, suitcases, jars, bottles, cans, shoes, clothing, parcels, or toys including “unsolicited or unusual parcels delivered from unfamiliar overseas addresses noting the identification of the sender and recipient and whether the recipient has reported multiple suspicious parcels in recent weeks or months.

 

Obama’s Citizen Army: H.R. 748 Would Require All Persons In The US 18-25 To Perform National Service

 

aliar

 

 (CAV quickbit- Derek Wood)  “I’m not a dictator,” says Obama.

(Examiner) -There has been speculation regarding President Obama’s “citizen army”.

In 2008, President Obama made statements regarding a “civilian national security force”. Since that day, many have been curious as to what President Obama had in mind when he made that statement. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY13) may have just given a bit of insight into what was meant when he introduced H.R. 748 last week.

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded,”Obama said as a candidate in 2008.

H.R. 748 would require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform “national service”. These persons in the United States would either serve the country as a member of uniformed services or as civilian service. The civilian service could be served with a Federal, State, or local government program. The local government programs include community-based organizations. H.R. 748 would “authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, to provide for the registration of women under the Military Selective Service Act, and for other purposes”

 

US, EU may start training and equipping Syrian rebels

1aa

(RT)-The US and Europe may begin equipping the rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) with vehicles, body armor, night vision gear and binoculars, as well as military training. The decision is expected after a key conference on Syria in Rome.

Until now, Western countries’ official support to the forces fighting against Syrian President Bashar Assad was limited to direct contact, logistical assistance and political backing.

 

Several top figures in the Obama administration, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and former CIA chief David Petraeus pushed for closer engagement with the Syrian rebels last year, which would likely include arming them.

 

The White House rejected the plan at the time, fearing that the arms would end up in the hands of Islamist forces like the Nursa Front group, which the US considers a terrorist organization. US officials said it was too difficult to fully vet the recipients of the proposed deliveries; that policy has now apparently changed.

 

The pending shift was hinted at on several occasions as new US Secretary of State John Kerry toured Europe recently. He pledged not to leave the Syrian opposition “dangling in the wind,” after meeting British Prime Minister David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague. The new US policy will likely be voiced after an international conference of the ‘Friends of Syria’ in Rome on Thursday.

 

A delegation from the exiled Syrian National Coalition will be attending the Rome conference, despite earlier threats to boycott it. The group reversed course and agreed to attend after a series of phone calls to the coalition leader Mouaz Khatib from top US officials.

 

European advocates said the Free Syrian Army should be provided with large supplies of munitions, including military vehicles, body armor and night vision goggles, as well as tactical and strategic training. This position is privately supported by Britain, France, Germany and Italy, a European official told the Washington Post on condition of anonymity.

 

London and Paris have pushed to lift an EU embargo on arms trades to Syria. However, the ban was prolonged until at least May, as some nations in the 27-member union have refused to lift it.

The US appears more skeptical, and is reluctant to include body armor and training in the package, Washington sources told AP, though it would not oppose its European allies on the matter, sources said.

 

When asked Tuesday about the prospects for expanding US military support for the rebels, Kerry said he would not speculate on the outcome of the meeting with opposition leaders.

 

“We’re going to Rome to bring a group of nations together precisely to talk about this problem,” Kerry said. “I don’t want to get ahead of that meeting or ability to begin to think about exactly what will be a part of it.”

 

The Syrian opposition relies on arms smugglers from Turkey and Jordan, and raids on Syrian army depots, for weapons and ammunition; rebel groups with better financial standing and more ruthlessness end up with the best equipment. Most of the arms funneled to Syria went to hardline Islamists, according to a US assessment cited by the New York Time last October.

 

The Nusra Front, which is estimated to have some 5,000 fighters operating in Syria in small semi-independent groups, has to a large degree sidelined the relatively moderate Free Syrian Army. The groups remain at odds not only with the Assad government in Damascus, but also with each other, holding different visions for the future of Syria.

 

In an effort to boost the FSA and undermine the Nursa Front, Washington had Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries deliver arms to the FSA from Croatia, according to the New York Times. Rebels said that the shipment included anti-aircraft and armor-piercing weapons, mortars and rocket launchers.

Montana votes 20-0 in favor of anti-NDAA bill

ndaa

(Activist Post) -The anti-NDAA movement continues to gain traction. There is still much more work to be done as part of Operation Homeland Liberty, but People’s Blog for The Constitution highlights the latest development we can add to the victory column in Montana’s step toward resisting federal intrusion.

By a vote of 20-0, a bill that bans cooperation with federal agents over the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) has just passed the Montana House Judiciary Committee. Known as HB 522, the bill would also require the state’s attorney general to report any attempts by federal officials who try to enforce the NDAA. HB 522 is now one step closer to becoming law.

Additional details below with contact information for Montana legislators..

Introduced by freshman Republican state Rep. Nicholas Schwaderer, the bill has gathered over 20 Democratic and Republican cosponsors in the House, including the Speaker Pro Tempore Austin Knudsen and the chair of the Judiciary committee, Krayton Kerns.

Speaking at a committee hearing on Wednesday, Schwaderer articulated why he opposes the NDAA and indefinite detention: “There’s a lot of us on both sides of the aisle that feels that this flies in the face of habeas corpus and a free society and the better part of a millennium of human progress.”

You have been lied to by the Government, again – and here’s how you can know

You have been lied to by the Government

(Prepper Podcast Radio) -“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.”

― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

“When truth is replaced by silence,the silence is a lie.” Yevgeny Yevtushenko

As an investigator I learned early two things: How to lie well enough to get the information I wanted, and the other is never to believe what you’re told. As Ronaldus Magnus (Ronald Reagan) love to repeat, “Trust, but verify”. It is an old Russian proverb that I’m afraid many people have never learned.

Fox News recently ran a story by the Associate Press, presenting the Government’s case in the ammunition purchase. But it was poorly written and the reporter did not ask the right questions, nor did they do all their homework.

From the story:

ICE’s ammunition requests in the last year included:

  • 450 million rounds of .40-caliber duty ammunition
  • 40 million rounds of rifle ammunition a year for as many as five years, for a total bullet-buy of 200 million rounds
  • 176,000 rifle rounds on a separate contract
  • 25,000 blank rounds

This small segment highlights the poor research conducted by the AP reporter. Right off the top – The 176,000 rifle rounds were cancelled. As we reported 2 October 2012:

“Put this in the “I don’t believe it” file, but something unusual has happened. The Department of Homeland Security /Immigration Customs Enforcement (DHS/ICE) has CANCELLED their request to purchase 176,000 rounds of .308 hollow point boat tail ammunition. According to an email that was passed onto me, Harry at the Federal Service Desk stated that a notice could be cancelled for a variety of reason.”

Another glaring issue is the “450 million rounds purchased”. What are not considered are prior year purchases. The following chart provides the breakdown of three branches of DHS that purchases ammunition: Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Customs Border Protectorate (CBP), and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) over the past four years.

2009

2010

2011

2012

ICE

575,759,800

487,200

350,004,000

165,012,000

CBP

77,400

88,000

250,000,000

FLETC

69,920

20,000

154,000

63,742,350

I could present a chart, but ICE’s purchases make the others seem insignificant.  The large numbers are taking the total number of contracted purchases to the date the contract was signed. Many contracts were for 4 or 5 years. Click HERE for the Excel file.

If Mr. Obama’s administration had no ammunition at the very beginning, they certainly develop a stockpile very quickly.

Had the Associated Press reporter had done their job; they would have asked the following questions:

  1. If FLETC requires 15 million rounds a year, how did they get their required ammunition in 2009, 2010, and 2011?
  2. If FLETC borrowed ammunition from ICE, is it not possible that ammunition could be allocated to Mr. Obama’s Civilian Army Corps without public notification?
  3. If FLETC has contracted out for 63,000,000 rounds of various ammunition in 2012, why then are they purchasing 200,000 rounds of .40 caliber JHP ammunition in December 2012 and 140,000 rounds of 9 mm and 100,000 rounds of .40 caliber February 2013?
  4. If over 15 million rounds of .40 caliber JHP ammunition is required per year, why did ICE order 38 years of ammunition in 2009, and another 23 years in 2011?
  5. If over 15 million rounds of .223 EP ammunition is required per year, why did ICE order 11 years of ammunition in 2012?
  6. If over 15 million rounds of .40 caliber JHP ammunition is required per year, why did CPB order 13 years of ammunition in 2012?
  7. Does the DHS Inspector General know that the December 2012 contract may have been fraudulently awarded?
  8. If the grand total that we’ve come up with is: 1,405,455,670. That roughly translates to 1,000 people firing 1 round a second for 16 days, at what point has too much ammunition has been purchased?

Transferring assets from one Department or Agency is as easy as filling out a sheet of paper listing the departments, assets, and quantities involved. Don’t be fooled. Bureaucracy has been around since Roman times. Bureaucrats know how to manipulate paper, and how to make it disappear.

And the silence becomes the lie.

Reinstate Military Draft Bill Introduced to Include All Women

 

military draft

(Activist Post) -Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) wants all Americans to serve their government, including women. On Friday he introduced one bill that would reinstate the draft and another that would require all women to register for Selective Service as well.

Rangel introduced  The National Universal Service Act(H.R. 747) for the sixth time since first being proposed in 2003 during the Iraq war.  H.R 747 “would require 30 million people in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform two years of national service in either the armed services or in civilian life.”

Rangel also introduced the All American Selective Service Act (H.R. 748) which requires all women to enroll in the Selective Service System.  This would essentially double the number of registrants. The current law requires only men ages 18 to 25 to register, leaving approximately only 13.5 million in the registry.

“Now that women can serve in combat they should register for the Selective Service alongside their male counterparts,” said Rangel in a statement. “Reinstating the draft and requiring women to register for the Selective Service would compel the American public to have a stake in the wars we fight as a nation. We must question why and how we go to war, and who decides to send our men and women into harm’s way.”

The last time Rangel introduced the “draft” bill was in 2011 on the very same day the Obama Administration launched a preemptive war in Libya on no-fly zone orders from the U.N., without Congressional approval, and despite never having been attacked or threatened by Libya.

He admitted at the time that the Iraq war was based on lies, “on false pretenses of weapons of mass destruction and involvement in the 9/11.” Yet he still insisted more Americans should be ”sharing in duty and service.”

In one sense Rangel truly believes all Americans should serve their country in some capacity, especially because the military is stretched so thin where multiple tours of duty are resulting in increased PTSD and record suicide rates.

On the other hand, he also believes a draft would force more young Americans to question the necessity of current wars.

“I served in Korea, and understand that sometimes war is inevitable,” Rangel continued. “However military engagement should be our last resort. If we must go to war, every American should be compelled to stop and think twice about whether it is worth sending our brothers and sisters, and sons and daughters to fight. Currently less than one percent of America’s population is unfairly shouldering the burden of war.”

Dianne Feinstein’s shocking lies about the number of civilians killed by U.S. drone program

(EndTheLie) – Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat and chair of the Senate Select  Committee on Intelligence, brazenly lied about the number of civilians killed by  the U.S.’s so-called “targeted killing” (or “targeted force” as she put  it) program during her remarks at the beginning of the confirmation  hearings of John Brennan.

This assassination program, mostly – but not entirely – comprised of strikes  carried out by drones, was recently shown to be even more disturbing than  previously thought with the leak of a Justice Department white paper, although a federal  court ruling determined that the Obama administration never has to explain  the legal basis for the strikes in court.

The program also has some calling for increased oversight through another secret court  even though Attorney General Eric Holder claims the secret reviews of classified evidence carried out by the  Obama administration count as due process.

“But for the past several years, this committee has done significant  oversight of the government’s conduct of targeted strikes, and the figures we  have obtained from the executive branch,  which we have done our utmost to verify, confirm that the number of civilian  casualties that have resulted from such strikes each year has typically been in  the single digits,” Feinstein said.

The claim that civilian deaths resulting from “the use of targeted force,” as  she put it, have “typically been in the single digits” is simply ludicrous.

Conor Friedersdorf massive underestimates the magnitude of this lie when he  calls the claim “imprecise.” It is nothing short of an egregious lie.

Even if Feinstein was using some of more “conservative” statistics like those  compiled by the New American Foundation – shown to be woefully inaccurate by Friedersdorf in July of 2012 – her  claim wouldn’t be truthful.

Researchers at the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in the UK estimates the number of civilians killed in drone strikes in  Pakistan – not including those killed by drones in Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere – to be at a minimum 2 in 2004, 6 in 2005, 96 in 2006, 4 in 2007, 74 in  2008, 119 in 2009, 97 in 2010, 68 in 2011 and 7 in 2012.

Maybe Feinstein chose to only look at the figures for 2004, 2005, 2007 and  2012? Even then, the claim would be dubious at best since those figures only  include Pakistan.

Keep in mind, as the Bureau of Investigative Journalism points out, that from  2004-2013 the CIA has conducted 364 drone strikes in Pakistan. 312 of those have been during the Obama  administration.

Somewhere from 473-893 civilians have been reported killed as a result of  those 364 strikes and 176 children were reported killed in Pakistan alone.  Anywhere from 1,270 to 1,433 civilians were reportedly injured. Remember, this  is all just in Pakistan where the CIA targets rescuers and funerals with drone strikes.

In Yemen, 42-52 U.S. drone strikes have been confirmed from  2002 to 2013 while 54-64 total U.S. operations have been confirmed, according to  the Bureau. Possible extra U.S. operations range from 135 to 157 and possible  extra U.S. drone strikes range from 77 to 93.

The total number of people killed ranges from 374 to 1,112 with 72 to 178  civilians killed by all operations. The number of children killed by all U.S.  operations in Yemen during the period ranges from 27 to 37.

Thankfully, the numbers in Somalia are significantly lower, but those numbers are from  2007 to 2013. The total number of U.S. strikes is 10-23, while the total number  of U.S. drone strikes range from three to nine.

Total number of people reported killed ranges from 58 to 170 while civilians  killed range from 11 to 57 with one to three children reported killed.

Friedersdorf also points out that there have been instances where a single  strike caused more civilian casualties than she claims occur in an entire  year.

One example is a 2009 strike in Yemen which resulted in far more civilian  deaths than Feinstein’s numbers would allow.

“Some months after the attack in Al Majalah, Amnesty International  released photos showing an American cluster bomb and a propulsion unit from a  Tomahawk cruise missile,” according to an article published on the New Yorker’s Daily Comment blog. “A subsequent inquiry by the Yemeni parliament found that fourteen Al Qaeda  fighters had been killed—along with forty-one civilians, including twenty-three  children.”

As the article points out, when American officials were spoken to, “they  seemed genuinely perplexed. They didn’t deny that a large number of civilians  had been killed. They felt bad about it. But the aerial surveillance, they said,  had clearly showed that a training camp for militants was operating there.”

“It was a terrible outcome,” an unnamed official told Dexter Filkins, the  author of the piece. “Nobody wanted that.”

If Feinstein’s claim was accurate, the casualties from that single “targeted” strike would have to be spread out over some five years.

That’s not the only single incident that proves Feinstein’s claim to be  completely and totally false.

An incredibly detailed and lengthy report published in September 2012, “Living Under Drones,” by the International Human Rights and  Conflict Resolution Clinic at Stanford Law School and the Global Justice Clinic  at New York University School of Law focused on one such incident in  Pakistan.

The report focused on a single drone strike on March 17, 2011 in Pakistan  which killed around 40 or more people according to “nearly all available  sources.”

While individuals with Pakistani intelligence said that 12 or 13 of those  killed were Taliban militants, the report stated that, “the Associated Press  investigation found that it was likely only four. Of those four, only one,  Sherabat Khan, has ever been identified by name.”

Separate investigations carried out by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism “so far obtained the names of 24 civilians killed who died in the strike,” according to the report.

The most noteworthy of all points, however, is that according to a New York  Times report from last year, “Obama embraced a disputed method for  counting civilian casualties that did little to box him in. It in effect counts  all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several  administration officials, unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously  proving them innocent.”

This method of counting civilian deaths is, on its face, completely  absurd.

Feinstein’s justification for trusting the Obama administration’s numbers are  perhaps even more absurd.

Spencer Ackerman of Danger Room asked Feinstein why the Intelligence  Committee would be confident in believing that the CIA was not misleading  Congress about civilian deaths from drones when they previously misled Congress  about their torture and detention program.

“That’s a good question, actually,” Feinstein said, according to Danger Room. “That’s a good question.”

“She said she felt the CIA wasn’t ‘defensive’ of the drones in the way it was  defensive of the torture program, however,” wrote Ackerman.

Feinstein refuses to even recognize the fact that the Obama administration’s  estimates are not only based on a patently absurd methodology but also that the  administration “has clear incentives to lie,” as Friedersdorf rightly points  out.

This issue is only going to become more important as outgoing Secretary of  Defense Leon Panetta stated that the U.S. needs an open-ended drone war in order to prevent a  future attack on America and the problem of domestic drone use is becoming increasingly  contentious.

Phillip Marshall: Former Pilot And 9/11 Conspiracy Theorist Shoots And Kills 2 Teen Children, Then Himself

(Boing Boing) -Phillip (alternately, “Philip”) Marshall, 54, a career airline pilot who claimed to have once served as a contract pilot for the CIA and DEA during the Iran-Contra affair, shot and killed his two teenage children, and the family dog, then killed himself.

The apparent murder-suicide was discovered at the family home in anupscale gated golfing community in Murphys, California.

According to local news reports, teen friends of Alex Marshall, 17 (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), and Macaila Marshall (Facebook, Twitter,Instagram), 14, noticed the siblings had not been active via text or social media updates since Thursday and went by the house on Saturday to check on them.

The last posts made by either child to Instagram and Facebook were dated Thursday night.

The friends told police that when they arrived, they found Phillip Marshall, 54, “lying in a pool of blood inside the home,” his 9mm Glock nearby.

Deputies believe the children were shot while sleeping on a couch.

The family dog was found shot to death in a nearby bedroom.

Marshall’s estranged wife Sean, the children’s mother, was out of the country at the time.

Phillip Marshall has been identified as a former pilot for Eastern and United airlines. He self-published a number of books, including at least two about his 9/11 conspiracy theories: “The Big Bamboozle” (February 9, 2012) and “False Flag 911: How Bush, Cheney and the Saudis Created the Post-911 World” (July 29, 2008).

A previous novel published in 2003, “Lakefront Airport, New Orleans,” detailed his claimed experience as a pilot for the US during Iran/Contra.

In his books and his social media bios (including multiple Facebookaccounts, his Twitter account and a Tumblr), he claims to have served as a contract pilot for the CIA’s Special Activities Division during the Iran-Contra affair, flying shipments to and from Nicaragua.

He appeared on “outsider truth” shows like Coast to Coast to promote the theories in his books that 9/11 was an “inside job,” the result of a plot between the US government and the Saudis.

From his author bio on Createspace.com, Amazon.com’s self-publishing service:

Philip Marshall, a veteran airline captain and former government “special activities” contract pilot, has authored three books on Top Secret America, a group presently conducting business as the United States Intelligence Community.Beginning with his role in the 1980s as a Learjet captain first as part of a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) sting on Pablo Escobar, and later in the covert arming of the Nicaraguan Contras, Marshall has studied and written 30-years worth of covert government special activities and the revolving door of Wall Street tricksters, media moguls, and their well funded politicians.

I am unable to confirm the veracity of the claims in his self-authored bio at this time.

 

A Facebook page for “The Big Bamboozle” showed posts as recent as January 31 with titles like, “WHAT IS THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY HIDING?,” “THE ARAB WORLD KNOWS THE RAID WAS A HOAX,” and posts about the Bin Laden assassination having been faked.

“PICTURES PAINT A THOUSAND WORDS,” read one such Facebook post from Marshall about photographs of the assassinated Al Qaeda leader. “Since bin Laden died in 2001, these would be “alleged” photos of bin Laden. Give us a break.”

He once also pitched those theories to a television news journalist with whom this blogger is acquainted.

A young friend of the two slain teens with whom this blogger is personally acquainted described them as “sweet, funny, lively, good kids.”

Photos from the siblings’ Instagram feeds suggest that they were outgoing, well-liked by friends, and loved one another very much. In one, Macaila is in the hospital after a “golf cart accident,” with her father sitting in the background.

In the last self-portrait she posted on January 28, her brother blows a hair dryer at her while she goofs in the mirror.

“I pretty much just wanted to say how great of a big brother you are,” Macaila writes to her brother in another Instagram caption, “I love you so much!”

A family photo Instagrammed by Alex shows the boy at a much younger age.

In it, he is helping his father mow the lawn with a toy lawnmower.

US taxpayers are set to lose $27 billion from financial bailout: Report

American taxpayers are expected to lose USD 27 billion from the 2008 financial bailout.

 
American taxpayers are expected to lose USD 27 billion from the 2008 financial bailout.
 
 
 
(PressTV)American taxpayers are expected to lose USD 27 billion from the 2008 financial bailout, as a report reveals further losses attributed to the US Treasury Department.

US taxpayers can expect to lose even more than the estimated USD 22 billion made in the fall last year, due to increased losses for the Treasury Department on sales of shares in bailed-out companies, according to a report released on Wednesday by the special inspector general for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP).

The report said taxpayers could lose USD 5.5 billion specifically on Ally Financial – formerly called GMAC under a partnership with General Motors – in losses based on unsafe mortgages given right before the financial crisis. Ally owes USD 14.6 billion of the USD 17.2 billion in assistance it received.

The US government would also need to sell all General Motors shares it holds at USD 71.86 per share, more than double the current price of USD 28. GM still owes USD 21.6 billion of the USD 49.5 billion bailout it received.

“Taxpayers saved GMAC, and they should not be put in the position of needing to save the company again,” said Special Inspector General Christy Romero, adding that both Ally and General Motors owe more than half of the USD 67.3 billion still owed to taxpayers by companies that were bailed out during the financial crisis.

The government watchdog went on to reveal fraud related to TARP during investigations that subsequently led to criminal charges against 119 people, including 82 senior company executives.

This comes as Romero accused the Treasury Department for providing “excessive” pay for executives tied to the bailed-out corporations rescued from the financial crisis including General Motors, Ally Financial and AIG – the largest bailout recipient at USD 182 billion.

After the 2008 financial crisis, Congress authorized USD 700 billion for the bailout of some of America’s largest companies. About USD 413 billion was eventually issued.

Who Runs The World? Solid Proof That A Core Group Of Wealthy Elitists Is Pulling The Strings

 

Who-Runs-The-World-Solid-Proof-That-A-Core-Group-Of-Wealthy-Elitists-Are-Pulling-The-Strings-294x300

(Economic Collapse) -Does a shadowy group of obscenely wealthy elitists control the world? Do men and women with enormous amounts of money really run the world from behind the scenes? The answer might surprise you. Most of us tend to think of money as a convenient way to conduct transactions, but the truth is that it also represents power and control. And today we live in a neo-feudalist system in which the super rich pull all the strings. When I am talking about the ultra-wealthy, I am not just talking about people that have a few million dollars. As you will see later in this article, the ultra-wealthy have enough money sitting in offshore banks to buy all of the goods and services produced in the United States during the course of an entire year and still be able to pay off the entire U.S. national debt. That is an amount of money so large that it is almost incomprehensible. Under this ne0-feudalist system, all the rest of us are debt slaves, including our own governments. Just look around – everyone is drowning in debt, and all of that debt is making the ultra-wealthy even wealthier. But the ultra-wealthy don’t just sit on all of that wealth. They use some of it to dominate the affairs of the nations. The ultra-wealthy own virtually every major bank and every major corporation on the planet. They use a vast network of secret societies, think tanks and charitable organizations to advance their agendas and to keep their members in line. They control how we view the world through their ownership of the media and their dominance over our education system. They fund the campaigns of most of our politicians and they exert a tremendous amount of influence over international organizations such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO. When you step back and take a look at the big picture, there is little doubt about who runs the world. It is just that most people don’t want to admit the truth.

The ultra-wealthy don’t run down and put their money in the local bank like you and I do. Instead, they tend to stash their assets in places where they won’t be taxed such as the Cayman Islands. According to a report that was released last summer, the global elite have up to 32 TRILLION dollars stashed in offshore banks around the globe.

U.S. GDP for 2011 was about 15 trillion dollars, and the U.S. national debt is sitting at about 16 trillion dollars, so you could add them both together and you still wouldn’t hit 32 trillion dollars.

And of course that does not even count the money that is stashed in other locations that the study did not account for, and it does not count all of the wealth that the global elite have in hard assets such as real estate, precious metals, art, yachts, etc.

The global elite have really hoarded an incredible amount of wealth in these troubled times. The following is from an article on the Huffington Post website

Rich individuals and their families have as much as $32 trillion of hidden financial assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenues, according to research published on Sunday.

The study estimating the extent of global private financial wealth held in offshore accounts – excluding non-financial assets such as real estate, gold, yachts and racehorses – puts the sum at between $21 and $32 trillion.

The research was carried out for pressure group Tax Justice Network, which campaigns against tax havens, by James Henry, former chief economist at consultants McKinsey & Co.

He used data from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, United Nations and central banks.

But as I mentioned previously, the global elite just don’t have a lot of money. They also basically own just about every major bank and every major corporation on the entire planet.

According to an outstanding NewScientist article, a study of more than 40,000 transnational corporations conducted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich discovered that a very small core group of huge banks and giant predator corporations dominate the entire global economic system…

An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.

The researchers found that this core group consists of just 147 very tightly knit companies…

When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies – all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity – that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. “In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network,” says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.

The following are the top 25 banks and corporations at the heart of this “super-entity”. You will recognize many of the names on the list…

1. Barclays plc
2. Capital Group Companies Inc
3. FMR Corporation
4. AXA
5. State Street Corporation
6. JP Morgan Chase & Co
7. Legal & General Group plc
8. Vanguard Group Inc
9. UBS AG
10. Merrill Lynch & Co Inc
11. Wellington Management Co LLP
12. Deutsche Bank AG
13. Franklin Resources Inc
14. Credit Suisse Group
15. Walton Enterprises LLC
16. Bank of New York Mellon Corp
17. Natixis
18. Goldman Sachs Group Inc
19. T Rowe Price Group Inc
20. Legg Mason Inc
21. Morgan Stanley
22. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc
23. Northern Trust Corporation
24. Société Générale
25. Bank of America Corporation

The ultra-wealthy elite often hide behind layers and layers of ownership, but the truth is that thanks to interlocking corporate relationships, the elite basically control almost every Fortune 500 corporation.

The amount of power and control that this gives them is hard to describe.

Unfortunately, this same group of people have been running things for a very long time. For example, New York City Mayor John F. Hylan said the following during a speech all the way back in 1922

The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes.

They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make catspaws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business.

These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.

These international bankers created the central banks of the world (including the Federal Reserve), and they use those central banks to get the governments of the world ensnared in endless cycles of debtfrom which there is no escape. Government debt is a way to “legitimately” take money from all of us, transfer it to the government, and then transfer it into the pockets of the ultra-wealthy.

Today, Barack Obama and almost all members of Congress absolutely refuse to criticize the Fed, but in the past there have been some brave members of Congress that have been willing to take a stand. For example, the following quote is from a speech that Congressman Louis T. McFadden delivered to the U.S. House of Representatives on June 10, 1932

Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board has cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.

Sadly, most Americans still believe that the Federal Reserve is a “federal agency”, but that is simply not correct. The following comes from factcheck.org

The stockholders in the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks are the privately owned banks that fall under the Federal Reserve System. These include all national banks (chartered by the federal government) and those state-chartered banks that wish to join and meet certain requirements. About 38 percent of the nation’s more than 8,000 banks are members of the system, and thus own the Fed banks.

According to researchers that have looked into the ownership of the big Wall Street banks that dominate the Fed, the same names keep coming up over and over: the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, the Warburgs, the Lazards, the Schiffs and the royal families of Europe.

But ultra-wealthy international bankers have not just done this kind of thing in the United States. Their goal was to create a global financial system that they would dominate and control. Just check out what Georgetown University history professor Carroll Quigley once wrote

[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.

Sadly, most Americans have never even heard of the Bank for International Settlements, but it is at the very heart of the global financial system. The following is from Wikipedia

As an organization of central banks, the BIS seeks to make monetary policy more predictable and transparent among its 58 member central banks. While monetary policy is determined by each sovereign nation, it is subject to central and private banking scrutiny and potentially to speculation that affects foreign exchange rates and especially the fate of export economies. Failures to keep monetary policy in line with reality and make monetary reforms in time, preferably as a simultaneous policy among all 58 member banks and also involving the International Monetary Fund, have historically led to losses in the billions as banks try to maintain a policy using open market methods that have proven to be based on unrealistic assumptions.

The ultra-wealthy have also played a major role in establishing other important international institutions such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO. In fact, the land for the United Nations headquarters in New York City was purchased and donated by John D. Rockefeller.

The international bankers are “internationalists” and they are very proud of that fact.

The elite also dominate the education system in the United States. Over the years, the Rockefeller Foundation and other elitist organizations have poured massive amounts of money into Ivy League schools. Today, Ivy League schools are considered to be the standard against which all other colleges and universities in America are measured, and the last four U.S. presidents were educated at Ivy League schools.

The elite also exert a tremendous amount of influence through various secret societies (Skull and Bones, the Freemasons, etc.), through some very powerful think tanks and social clubs (the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Bohemian Grove, Chatham House, etc.), and through a vast network of charities and non-governmental organizations (the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the World Wildlife Fund, etc.).

But for a moment, I want to focus on the power the elite have over the media. In a previous article, I detailed how just six monolithic corporate giants control most of what we watch, hear and read every single day. These giant corporations own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many of our favorite websites.

Considering the fact that the average American watches 153 hours of television a month, the influence of these six giant corporations should not be underestimated. The following are just some of the media companies that these corporate giants own…

And of course the elite own most of our politicians as well. The following is a quote from journalist Lewis Lapham

“The shaping of the will of Congress and the choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to the country’s equestrian classes, a.k.a. the 20% of the population that holds 93% of the wealth, the happy few who run the corporations and the banks, own and operate the news and entertainment media, compose the laws and govern the universities, control the philanthropic foundations, the policy institutes, the casinos, and the sports arenas.”

Have you ever wondered why things never seem to change in Washington D.C. no matter who we vote for?

Well, it is because both parties are owned by the establishment.

It would be nice to think that the American people are in control of who runs things in the U.S., but that is not how it works in the real world.

In the real world, the politician that raises more money wins more than 80 percent of the time in national races.

Our politicians are not stupid – they are going to be very good to the people that can give them the giant piles of money that they need for their campaigns. And the people that can do that are the ultra-wealthy and the giant corporations that the ultra-wealthy control.

Are you starting to get the picture?

There is a reason why the ultra-wealthy are referred to as “the establishment”. They have set up a system that greatly benefits them and that allows them to pull the strings.

So who runs the world?

They do. In fact, they even admit as much.

David Rockefeller wrote the following in his 2003 book entitled “Memoirs”

“For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

There is so much more that could be said about all of this. In fact, an entire library of books could be written about the power and the influence of the ultra-wealthy international bankers that run the world.

But hopefully this is enough to at least get some conversations started.

So what do you think about all of this? Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below…

Luxembourg Court Backs Iceland’s Decision Not to Pay Banker-created Debt

(TheRealAgenda) -Who has to pay the bankers in Iceland’s banking crash? Not the Icelanders. Different from countries such as Spain and Ireland, Iceland decided that taxpayers should not pay for the excesses of an industry that had grown disproportionately, but most importantly, that had ramped up the country’s debt to a point where upwards of 90 % of the debt written under the country’s name was actually bank debt.

Iceland will compensate the British and Dutch two of the countries that had bet more heavily in the fictitious financial products offered by banks out of Iceland. The citizens said no twice through referendums, and now, five years after the collapse of its banking system, a Luxembourg court just gave the northern nation the reassurance that they did what needed to be done to get rid of the bankers’ tentacles.

The Court of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) believes that the country did not violate any law when it refused to return to 300,000 savers money deposited in foreign entities offering some interests that then seemed to good to pass. “It is a victory for democracy. It sends the message that banks can not reap the benefits and send the bill to taxpayers when things go wrong, “says Magnus Skúlasson, an Icelandic economist.

The court, which also represented Norway and Liechtenstein, provides a very interesting nuance: Iceland is not obligated to pay as “the deposit insurance fund was unable to meet its obligations in the event of a systemic crisis “. The decision by the court would be equal to the FDIC fund not having enough cash to ensure the banking entities in the United States, with bankers demanding that U.S. taxpayers assumed the responsibility of a carefully crafted collapse of the American banking system. Just as in the case of Iceland, U.S. taxpayers would not be liable for the banks’ misconduct and therefore they wouldn’t have to pick up the tab.

A community spokesman was quick to answer that Brussels clings to the obligations of the deposit insurance funds that remain “valid also if there is a systemic crisis.” Nevertheless, the European Commission says it needs time to study the ruling. “The ruling is also good for the Netherlands and the UK. If they had won, it would mean that the nation-state is responsible for all bank deposits, something no country wants, “adds Jon Danielsson of the London School of Economics.

After the bankruptcy, the governments in London and Amsterdam used their coffers to compensate customers of the Icelandic bank. Shortly after they began the legal process that came to an end yesterday, as the ruling that Reykjavik considered “satisfactory”, does not admit any appeals.

Despite the support of the courts, Iceland has ended up paying some of the money. Reykjavik has already repaid about 3,300 million euros, about half of the total paid in Icesave, that corresponds to debt that the government itself was actually responsible for. The money corresponds to the debt from Landsbanki, one of three banks that failed in 2008 and led the entire country’s banking system to bankruptcy. The amount paid is more than 90% of the guaranteed minimum that the State was obliged to return.

China Just Threatened a Currency War If the Fed Doesn’t Stop Printing

(Gains Pains and Capital) -The tension between Central Banks that we noted yesterday continues to worsen. This time it was China and the EU, not just Germany, that fired warning shots at the US Fed.

A senior Chinese official said on Friday that the United States should cut back on printing money to stimulate its economy if the world is to have confidence in the dollar.

Asked whether he was worried about the dollar, the chairman of China’s sovereign wealth fund, the China Investment Corporation, Jin Liqun, told the World Economic Forum in Davos: “I am a little bit worried.”

“There will be no winners in currency wars. But it is important for a central bank that the money goes to the right place,” Li said.

Speaking at the same session, French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici voiced concern that the euro was becoming overvalued as a result of quantitative easing and other stimulus actions taken by other nations’ central banks.

“Certainly, the level of the euro is high and creates some problem,” he said, attributing the single currency’s recent gains partly to the return of confidence created by the European Central Bank and euro zone governments in starting to overcome Europe’s debt crisis.

So first Germany begins pulling its Gold reserves from the US, and now China and the EU are saying publicly that the Fed’s policies are damaging confidence in the US Dollar.

This does not bode well for the financial system. The primary role of Central Banks is to maintain confidence in the system. If the Central Banks begin to turn on one another it is only a matter of time before the system breaks down.

Remember, every time the Fed debases the US Dollar it forces the Euro and other currencies higher, hurting those countries’ exports. The Fed has recently announced it will be printing $85 billion every month until employment reaches 6.5% (obviously the Fed is ignoring the mountains of data that indicate QE doesn’t create jobs).

How long will the other Central Banks tolerate this before they initiate a currency war? Both Germany and China have fired warning shots at the Fed. And we all know that just beneath the veneer of goodwill, tensions are building between the primary players of the global financial system. More importantly, how can investors profit from this? Remember, entire fortunes can be made during times of crises.

Italian Prosecutor Implicates Bilderberg Group and CIA for Massacres in Italy During the Seventies and Eighties

(Activist Post) The Bilderberg Group has now been directly implicated for the murder of Italian activists during the seventies and eighties.

According to Ferdinando Imposimato, a former prosecutor that investigated the Italian Mafia who is also an honorary president of the Italian Supreme Court, during a speech he delivered at a book launch revealed for the first time that the Bilderberg Group were responsible for massacres of political activists during the seventies and eighties in Italy.

Ferdinando Imposimato not only implicates the Bilderberg Group, he also reveals that the CIA and Bilderberg Group were working in partnership to destabilize the Italian political framework during the seventies and eighties.

While discussing how the Bilderberg Group and CIA tried to infiltrate Italy, Mr. Imposimato was quoted as saying:

The strategy (used by the CIA) was used to shift the political balance from right to center-left and then to left. This was orchestrated by the CIA.

Unknown to many, the Bilderberg Group has a long history of manipulating political frameworks around the world.
Within the last 12 months, prominent members of the Bilderberg Group have been appointed to the upper echelons of the United States and United Kingdom governments.

Interestingly, Italy has been represented at many Bilderberg Group meetings. In fact, at the last three Bilderberg Group meetings, 17 participants were Italian. On average, Italians make up 5% of the participants list at all Bilderberg Group meetings.

The following is a list of Italian Bilderberg Group participants:

Franco Bernabe, John Elkann, Mario Monti, Tommaso Padoa Schioppa, Paolo Scaroni, Giulio Tremonti, Gianni Agnelli, Umberto Agnelli, Alfredo Ambrosetti, Emma Bonino, Giampiero Cantoni, Lucio Caracciolo, Louis G.
