Jenin Jenin: The World Is Turning A Deaf Ear To The Genocide of Palestinians by Zionist State Of Israel!
1980 Jewish Almanac
“Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.”
(1980 Jewish Almanac, p. 3).
The Jewish Encyclopedia:
“Khazars, a non-Semitic, Asiatic, Mongolian tribal nation who emigrated into Eastern Europe about the first century, who were converted as an entire nation to Judaism in the seventh century by the expanding Russian nation which absorbed the entire Khazar population, and who account for the presence in Eastern Europe of the great numbers of Yiddish-speaking Jews in Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Galatia, Besserabia and Rumania.”
The American Peoples Encyclopedia
… for 1954 at 15-292 records the following in reference to the Khazars: “In the year 740 A.D. the Khazars were officially converted to Judaism. A century later they were crushed by the incoming Slavic-speaking people and were scattered over central Europe where they were known as Jews.
- This is a warning sign that all is not well. I am really uncomfortable reading this, as it implies the potential of bank runs! Why would they institute such a ruling if the banking system is healthy? Citigroup still has immense exposure to derivatives, which are now worthless. The reason why many banks are classified as solvent is because of the FASB ruling allowing banks to ‘Mark to Model’ for their assets, around March 2009. But for that, all the Top 5-7 banks are bust! Despite the government’s bailouts and guarantees amounting to about US$27T, the banks are still iffy! This tells you that the problem is not going away soon and the quadrillion $ derivatives is intractable! Paul Joseph Watson reports:
Announcement stokes fears of old fashioned bank runs if economy takes a turn for the worse.
A new advisory being sent by America’s third largest bank to its account holders has stoked fears that major financial institutions could be preparing for old fashioned bank runs if the economy takes a turn for the worse.
Originally reported by John Carney over at the Business Insider website, Citigroup is sending the following information to customers along with their bank statements. “Effective April 1, 2010, we reserve the right to require (7) days advance notice before permitting a withdrawal from all checking accounts. While we do not currently exercise this right and have not exercised it in the past, we are required by law to notify you of this change.”
An almost identical advisory to the one being sent out can be read on page 22 of Citbank’s Client Manual effective January 1, 2010, which can be read here from Citibank’s own website. “We reserve the right to require seven (7) days advance notice before permitting a withdrawal from all checking, savings and money market accounts. We currently do not exercise this right and have not exercised it in the past,” states the manual.
According to the Future of Capitalism blog, Citigroup originally claimed that the warning was only sent nationwide as a result of a mistake, but that the measures do apply to account holders in Texas.
However, in a statement, Citigroup confirmed that they had reserved the right to impose the new 7 day rule on all account holders nationwide, but claimed they had no plans to enforce it. The bank stated that they had been forced to enact the new policy as a result of federal regulations.
“When Citibank moved to unlimited FDIC coverage in 2009, we had to reclassify many checking accounts to allow for immediate withdrawals in order to ensure all customers qualified for the additional coverage. When we moved back to standard FDIC coverage with most major banks in 2010, Citibank decided to reclassify those accounts back to make them eligible again for promotional incentives. To do so, Federal Reserve Reg D requires these accounts, called NOW accounts, to reserve the right to require a 7-day notice of withdrawal. We recently communicated this technical requirement to our customers. However, we have never exercised this right and have no plans to do so in the future,” reads a statement released by the bank.
Over the last 18 months, numerous rumors of bank runs, “bank holidays,” and limitations on access to cash at ATM’s have been floating around. Citigroup’s new policy to restrict withdrawals won’t do anything to calm such fears. As we reported back in 2008, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., which guarantees individual accounts up to $100,000, only has about $50 billion to “insure” about $1 trillion in assets across the nation’s financial institutions.
This revelation prompted fears that an accelerating amount of bank closures could absorb FDIC funds and leave holders of money market and traditional savings accounts exposed.

- As many as 48 out of 50 states are insolvent. Illinois may be the first but it won’t be the last. The big one is California, the 7th or 8th largest economy in the world! America is bankrupt at all levels: federal, state, municipal, corporate … individual … Yet the government has just increase the war budget to US$1 Trillion. Ask yourself why? The snakes in the District of Criminals (DC) just provided about US$27 Trillion of bailouts and guarantees to the banksters. Ask yourself why? This is nothing but the rape of the country by the Illuminati international banksters. The next stage is the destruction of the country via war! And I mean war in the homeland of America! Chicago Sun-Times reports:
It will take a massive tax increase — and $2 billion more in cuts — to reach solvency, group says.
SPRINGFIELD – To become solvent, the state must enact the largest tax-increase package in Illinois history, whack another $2 billion from already starved government programs and wrest major financial concessions from the state’s unionized work force, a nonpartisan government watchdog contends.
In a new analysis of Illinois’ “horrific” finances, the Civic Federation lays out the painful choices awaiting Gov. Quinn and the Legislature as they stare down an epic $12.8 billion budget deficit that has choked the flow of state cash to public universities and schools, transit systems and social-service agencies to the point of economic collapse.
“Doomsday is here for the State of Illinois,” said Laurence Msall, the organization’s president. The Civic Federation recommends that the state income tax be increased from 3 percent to 5 percent for individuals, that retirees’ pension and Social Security checks be taxed for the first time at the same rate as workers’ paychecks, and the tax on cigarettes be raised by another $1 per pack. The group also favors getting rid of $181 million in corporate tax breaks.
Those tax increases, which would generate more than $8 billion, should come only if the state first can persuade its unionized employees to pay more toward their pensions and health care, cut pension benefits for new workers and reduce overall spending by $2.1 billion to 2007 levels. Medicaid programs and elementary and secondary schools would be spared from those cuts to avoid sacrificing federal stimulus dollars, Msall said. “This is an economically reasonable approach to a horrific situation,” he said.
But AFSCME Council 31, state government’s largest union, has shown no interest in having its members — who have accepted furloughs and deferred pay increases — pay more toward their pensions and health care or in establishing what is known as a two-tier pension system where new employees would receive a less-generous retirement package than existing workers.
“Since this proposal to slash $2 billion exempts education and health care, it would mean reducing human services and public safety,” AFSCME spokesman Anders Lindall said. “We think that’s reckless, especially in a recession that’s driving demand for public services up, not down.”
The Civic Federation’s recommendations would enable the state to pay down the $12.8 billion deficit by more than $10 billion by June 2011, but $2.1 billion in red ink would carry over for at least another year under the group’s plan. The report’s release comes as Quinn prepares to launch an online site Wednesday to begin soliciting public input on what should be included or left out of his fiscal 2011 budget proposal, which he’ll unveil March 10.
Quinn’s office declined comment on the Civic Federation report but expressed interest in “working with the group during the upcoming budget debate.” Ground Zero in that debate is the Illinois House. Speaker Michael Madigan has insisted that his GOP rivals sign on to any tax increases and has begun calling them “dropouts” for what he regards as their inflexibility on finding new revenue.
“I don’t do predictions,” Madigan spokesman Steve Brown said, when asked about the Civic Federation plan and the chances any of it might pass. “I think the speaker has supported a cigarette tax increase. I think Democrats supported starting down the road to a two-tier pension system, but the ‘dropouts’ have done nothing.”
House Minority Leader Tom Cross (R-Oswego) has taken a tax increase off the table, instead pressing for budget cuts and pension reforms and noting the state’s fiscal crisis bloomed under seven years of Democratic-crafted budgets that Republicans didn’t vote for.
Told of the Civic Federation’s recommendations, Cross spokeswoman Sara Wojcicki withheld judgment on the report but offered no signs that Republicans are prepared to move off the dime on any tax increases this spring: “I’m not sure much has changed.”
Msall, with the Civic Federation, said that if lawmakers leave Springfield without getting out of the state’s budgetary black hole, everyone in Illinois will suffer. “It’s not sustainable to continue to ignore your vendors. It’s not sustainable to ask your schools, local governments and homes for the developmentally disabled to go out to the market to borrow” because the state isn’t fulfilling its funding promises, Msall said. “A failure to effectively address this crisis in a comprehensive form will result in not only lost opportunities but in greater pain.”
- What economic recovery? Do we really believe the Bureau of Lying (Labor) Statistics? Do we really believe the economy is recovering without job recovery? I don’t think so. A consumer economy needs consumers. The amount of newly poor is rising. The amount of people on food stamps are in record high territoy! The New York Times reports:
BUENA PARK, Calif. — Even as the American economy shows tentative signs of a rebound, the human toll of the recession continues to mount, with millions of Americans remaining out of work, out of savings and nearing the end of their unemployment benefits.
Economists fear that the nascent recovery will leave more people behind than in past recessions, failing to create jobs in sufficient numbers to absorb the record-setting ranks of the long-term unemployed.
Call them the new poor: people long accustomed to the comforts of middle-class life who are now relying on public assistance for the first time in their lives — potentially for years to come. Yet the social safety net is already showing severe strains. Roughly 2.7 million jobless people will lose their unemployment check before the end of April unless Congress approves the Obama administration’s proposal to extend the payments, according to the Labor Department.
Here in Southern California, Jean Eisen has been without work since she lost her job selling beauty salon equipment more than two years ago. In the several months she has endured with neither a paycheck nor an unemployment check, she has relied on local food banks for her groceries.
She has learned to live without the prescription medications she is supposed to take for high blood pressure and cholesterol. She has become effusively religious — an unexpected turn for this onetime standup comic with X-rated material — finding in Christianity her only form of health insurance.
“I pray for healing,” says Ms. Eisen, 57. “When you’ve got nothing, you’ve got to go with what you know.” Warm, outgoing and prone to the positive, Ms. Eisen has worked much of her life. Now, she is one of 6.3 million Americans who have been unemployed for six months or longer, the largest number since the government began keeping track in 1948. That is more than double the toll in the next-worst period, in the early 1980s.
Men have suffered the largest numbers of job losses in this recession. But Ms. Eisen has the unfortunate distinction of being among a group — women from 45 to 64 years of age — whose long-term unemployment rate has grown rapidly.
In 1983, after a deep recession, women in that range made up only 7 percent of those who had been out of work for six months or longer, according to the Labor Department. Last year, they made up 14 percent.
Twice, Ms. Eisen exhausted her unemployment benefits before her check was restored by a federal extension. Last week, her check ran out again. She and her husband now settle their bills with only his $1,595 monthly disability check. The rent on their apartment is $1,380. “We’re looking at the very real possibility of being homeless,” she said.
Every downturn pushes some people out of the middle class before the economy resumes expanding. Most recover. Many prosper. But some economists worry that this time could be different. An unusual constellation of forces — some embedded in the modern-day economy, others unique to this wrenching recession — might make it especially difficult for those out of work to find their way back to their middle-class lives.
Labor experts say the economy needs 100,000 new jobs a month just to absorb entrants to the labor force. With more than 15 million people officially jobless, even a vigorous recovery is likely to leave an enormous number out of work for years.

- It’s time for people in a state of denial to wake up! America is in deep trouble. American patriots must wake up and take their country back from the snakes in DC. These paid for whores have been selling out the country for far too long. They are just puppets doing the bidding of the Illuminati international banksters.
- The next stage in their plan is the ‘Nazification’ of America. They will use America much like Germany was used in WW2, to goto war for world conquest for their New World Order, Global Fascist Police State. It is apparent from the Patriot Act, Homeland Security, Continuity of Government….. airport full body scanner… on and on .. their plans are well advanced. Wake up Americans, your country needs you!
A parable about how one nation came to financial ruin.
In the early 1700s, Europeans discovered in the Pacific Ocean a large, unpopulated island with a temperate climate, rich in all nature’s bounty except coal, oil, and natural gas. Reflecting its lack of civilization, they named this island “Basicland.”
The Europeans rapidly repopulated Basicland, creating a new nation. They installed a system of government like that of the early United States. There was much encouragement of trade, and no internal tariff or other impediment to such trade. Property rights were greatly respected and strongly enforced. The banking system was simple. It adapted to a national ethos that sought to provide a sound currency, efficient trade, and ample loans for credit-worthy businesses while strongly discouraging loans to the incompetent or for ordinary daily purchases.
Moreover, almost no debt was used to purchase or carry securities or other investments, including real estate and tangible personal property. The one exception was the widespread presence of secured, high-down-payment, fully amortizing, fixed-rate loans on sound houses, other real estate, vehicles, and appliances, to be used by industrious persons who lived within their means. Speculation in Basicland’s security and commodity markets was always rigorously discouraged and remained small. There was no trading in options on securities or in derivatives other than “plain vanilla” commodity contracts cleared through responsible exchanges under laws that greatly limited use of financial leverage.
In its first 150 years, the government of Basicland spent no more than 7 percent of its gross domestic product in providing its citizens with essential services such as fire protection, water, sewage and garbage removal, some education, defense forces, courts, and immigration control. A strong family-oriented culture emphasizing duty to relatives, plus considerable private charity, provided the only social safety net.
The tax system was also simple. In the early years, governmental revenues came almost entirely from import duties, and taxes received matched government expenditures. There was never much debt outstanding in the form of government bonds.
As Adam Smith would have expected, GDP per person grew steadily. Indeed, in the modern area it grew in real terms at 3 percent per year, decade after decade, until Basicland led the world in GDP per person. As this happened, taxes on sales, income, property, and payrolls were introduced. Eventually total taxes, matched by total government expenditures, amounted to 35 percent of GDP. The revenue from increased taxes was spent on more government-run education and a substantial government-run social safety net, including medical care and pensions.
A regular increase in such tax-financed government spending, under systems hard to “game” by the unworthy, was considered a moral imperative—a sort of egality-promoting national dividend—so long as growth of such spending was kept well below the growth rate of the country’s GDP per person.
Basicland also sought to avoid trouble through a policy that kept imports and exports in near balance, with each amounting to about 25 percent of GDP. Some citizens were initially nervous because 60 percent of imports consisted of absolutely essential coal and oil. But, as the years rolled by with no terrible consequences from this dependency, such worry melted away.
Basicland was exceptionally creditworthy, with no significant deficit ever allowed. And the present value of large “off-book” promises to provide future medical care and pensions appeared unlikely to cause problems, given Basicland’s steady 3 percent growth in GDP per person and restraint in making unfunded promises. Basicland seemed to have a system that would long assure its felicity and long induce other nations to follow its example—thus improving the welfare of all humanity.
But even a country as cautious, sound, and generous as Basicland could come to ruin if it failed to address the dangers that can be caused by the ordinary accidents of life. These dangers were significant by 2012, when the extreme prosperity of Basicland had created a peculiar outcome: As their affluence and leisure time grew, Basicland’s citizens more and more whiled away their time in the excitement of casino gambling. Most casino revenue now came from bets on security prices under a system used in the 1920s in the United States and called “the bucket shop system.”
The winnings of the casinos eventually amounted to 25 percent of Basicland’s GDP, while 22 percent of all employee earnings in Basicland were paid to persons employed by the casinos (many of whom were engineers needed elsewhere). So much time was spent at casinos that it amounted to an average of five hours per day for every citizen of Basicland, including newborn babies and the comatose elderly. Many of the gamblers were highly talented engineers attracted partly by casino poker but mostly by bets available in the bucket shop systems, with the bets now called “financial derivatives.”
