Dubious Evidence Israeli Bus Attackers Based in Gaza!

  • Egypt protests Israeli escalation in Gaza
    by Saed Bannoura – IMEMC News
    The Egyptian government and population have challenged the Israeli response to a Palestinian attack on Thursday, which has involved bombardment of different areas of the Gaza Strip and a full lockdown of the borders.
    -
    Egypt lodged an official protest demanding an investigation of the killing of three Egyptian border guards by the Israeli military during Israeli operations that followed a Palestinian attack on an Israeli bus. An Egyptian official told the MENA News Agency, “Egypt has demanded an urgent probe into the circumstances of the deaths and injuries of Egyptian forces’ members inside our borders.”
    -
    Although the Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak claimed that the bus attackers entered Israel from Egypt in order to carry out the attack, Egyptian officials denied the charge, claiming that their hold on the border is secure.
    -
    Following the attack on the Israeli bus, Egyptian border officials shut down the Rafah border, the only crossing point for Gazans to leave or enter the besieged coastal strip. Also on Friday, dozens of Egyptian protesters gathered outside the Israeli embassy in Cairo, demanding an end to the Israeli assault on Gaza.
    -
    Protesters chanted, “Close the embassy! Expel the ambassador!”, and some of the protesters burned an Israeli flag. They challenged the Israeli bombardment of Gaza that continued through Thursday night and Friday, following the attack against Israeli soldiers and civilians on Thursday afternoon.

ZeroHedge: The Great Collapse Has Officially Begun!

-

  • I repeat this warning again for all who have the ears to hear! Great financial tsunami is coming! Global economic, financial and monetary collapse coming soon! All of us who understand what is going on, are all “running for the hills” or “hiding in our underground shelters”! Got gold yet?

    The Great Collapse Has Officially Begun
    by Phoenix Capital Research, http://www.zerohedge.com/
    I’ve been warning of this for well over two years. My primary warnings were:
    -
    1)   That 2008 was just a warm-up
    2)   That the REAL Crisis had yet to unfold
    3)   That the REAL Crisis would make 2008 look like a picnic
    -
    Well, the period I’ve been warning of is now here.  What’s happening right
    now is not just a market crash, bear market, deflation, or any other item related to just one asset class.
    -
    Instead, this is a collapse of the entire US monetary and political system and the mentality of spending one’s way to wealth.
    -
    For 80+ years, the US has operated under a crony capitalist system in which politicians dole out political and economic favors to the chosen few whose bribes/donations funded their campaigns.

    -
    This system was aided and abetted by the US Federal Reserve, which dealt with any and all economic issues by printing more money. Whether it was the Asian Crisis, Long Term Capital Management, or the 2008 Crash, the Fed dealt with the issue by opening the floodgates and flooding the financial system with liquidity.
    -
    Aside from making moral hazard (the notion that those large firms who screwed up were never actually allowed to fail) the bedrock of the financial system, the Fed also blew a credit bubble which in turn funded bubbles in virtually every asset class: bonds, stocks, real estate, emerging markets, even some commodities.
    -
    Indeed, the vast majority of US economic growth over the last 40 years has been fueled by the Fed’s loose money policies. Bill King, an analyst and investor whom I admire, shared the below chart with me a while back. It charts US GDP growth in nominal terms (the dark blue line), the performance of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (the black line), and REAL GDP growth or growth that accounts for inflation (the light blue line).
    -
    As you can see, when we account for inflation, the US economic “miracle” of the last 30 years is in fact not all that miraculous. Take away easy credit and Fed funny money and the US GDP has barely grown at all since the ‘70s.
    -
    When your entire financial system is built on debt eventually you hit a brick wall. We did this in 2008. The Fed barely held the system together by going “all in” and funneling over $11 trillion in bailouts, backstopping the major US banks, and transferring north of $2 trillion in garbage debt to the public’s balance sheet (these are just the moves we know about).
    -
    This effort has now failed as the world collectively realizes that the Fed cannot hold the system together. This began to become clear when QE 2 spent $600 billion and the US got at most three months’ worth of improved economic data (while inflation exploded throughout the global economy, leading to riots, coups, and more).

    -
    In simple terms, we’ve now entered the Real Crisis, the END GAME, for our current monetary system. Before the dust settles on this mess, the US and its political, economic, monetary structure will look very very different.
    -
    However, before we get there, we will see riots, civil unrest, possibly martial law, for certain a Government shutdown, bank holidays, a debt default/ restructuring, the re-instatement of the Gold standard or something like it (possibly a basket of commodities), food shortages, and more.
    -
    We will also see trade wars, possibly another World War, a temporary backlash against globalization, a de-consolidation or fragmentation of corporate America, and other items.

Ron Paul: On FEMA Camps! “They’re Setting The Stage For Violence In This Country”!

  • Ron Paul: “They’re Setting The Stage For Violence In This Country” 
    by Paul Joseph Watson, www.Infowars.com
    In a response to a question asked by Infowars correspondent Robert Wanek at Iowa State University during the recent Ames straw poll, Ron Paul said that the federal government was preparing for civil unrest and martial law in the United States.

    -
    Paul was asked for his opinion on whether H.R. 645 (The National Emergency Centers Establishment Act) could lead to Americans being incarcerated in detention camps during a time of martial law. “Yeah, that’s their goal, they’re setting up the stage for violence in this country, no doubt about it,” responded Paul.
    -
    The National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645, first introduced in January 2009, mandates the establishment of “national emergency centers” to be located on military installations for the purpose of providing “temporary housing, medical, and humanitarian assistance to individuals and families dislocated due to an emergency or major disaster,” according to the bill.
    -
    The legislation also states that the camps will be used to “provide centralized locations to improve the coordination of preparedness, response, and recovery efforts of government, private, and not-for-profit entities and faith-based organizations”.
    -
    Ominously, the bill also states that the camps can be used to “meet other appropriate needs, as determined by the Secretary of Homeland Security,” an open ended mandate which many fear could mean the forced detention of American citizens in the event of widespread rioting after a national emergency or total economic collapse.
    -
    The legislation was referred to Committee and did not proceed any further, but it was not rejected in a vote and can be re-introduced at any time in a new session of Congress.
    -
    As we reported yesterday, in the aftermath of the UK riots, police departments in the United States are being trained to deal with rioting and civil unrest. Back in 2008, U.S. troops returning from Iraq were earmarked for “homeland patrols” with one of their roles including helping with “civil unrest and crowd control”.
    -
    In December 2008, the Washington Post reported on plans to station 20,000 more U.S. troops inside America for purposes of “domestic security” from September 2011 onwards, an expansion of Northcom’s militarization of the country in preparation for potential civil unrest following a total economic collapse or a mass terror attack.
    -
    The United States has continuity of government plans in place should martial law be declared by the President. However, the details of those plans have been so tightly guarded that even Congressman and Homeland Security Committee member Peter DeFazio (D – OR), who has the necessary security clearance, was denied access to view the material when he requested to do so back in July 2007.
    -
    “I just can’t believe they’re going to deny a member of Congress the right of reviewing how they plan to conduct the government of the United States after a significant terrorist attack,” DeFazio told the Oregonian at the time, adding, “Maybe the people who think there’s a conspiracy out there are right.”
    -
    Congressman Paul has warned about preparations for martial law before, telling the Alex Jones Show, “They’re putting their back up against the wall and saying, if need be we’re going to have martial law.”
