HR 1553 Authorizing ‘Use of Force’ Against Iran Is Based On Pure Propaganda!

  • We are seeing a repeat of 2002-2003 before war with Iraq. All the lies, propaganda, disinformation, misinformation… Do Americans really believe all these bull crap? If not, you better start speaking up real loudly real soon. Because Iran is not a walk in the park. It will be the trigger for a Greater Middle East War and the start of World War 3! We do not need this war.
     
  • The Illuminist plan is to set the world ablaze. They want to get all the sheeple fighting amongst themselves. They want to destroy the current order and usher in their Global Luciferian State. Do not listen to all the mentally ill NeoCons and Zionists snakes. Don’t be duped again!
     
    HR 1553 Authorizing ‘Use of Force’ Against Iran is Based on Pure Propaganda
    America has not officially declared war on a nation since World War II.  Yet we are now entangled in endless wars with no feasible goals, except sustained military profits and resource grabs. Instead, we vote to “authorize the use of force” just in case we may need it, which strategically limits the public debate.  Although many believe that the stiff Iran sanctions detailed in HR 2194, the Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act was an Act of War, the proposed HR 1553 is the actual “authorization of the use of force.”
     
    HR 1553: Expressing support for the State of Israel’s right to defend Israeli sovereignty, to protect the lives and safety of the Israeli people, and to use all means necessary to confront and eliminate nuclear threats posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, including the use of military force if no other peaceful solution can be found within reasonable time to protect against such an immediate and existential threat to the State of Israel.

     
    Here is the HR1553 Resolution!
        
    This entire resolution is loaded with war mongering propaganda reported in the New York Times and others — not based on actions, or even concrete intelligence gathering.  They are basing this legislation (declaration of war) on mistranslated statements that Ahmadinejad made in speeches.  Based on this reasoning, it seems that Iran and North Korea are justified to use force against America because George W. Bush threatened and labeled them the “axis of evil.”  If the American people fall for this once again, perhaps we deserve the ramifications of World War III.

Why Iran’s Jews are Better Off Than Gaza’s Palestinians!

Moris Motanmed (center), Jewish member of the Iran Parliament. Iranian Jews refuse cash 'bribe' to move to Israel

  • Do you believe all the NeoCon, Zionist propaganda about Iran? The Illuminist MSM promotes Islamophobia. Muslim are the enemies, they are terrorists, they hate Christians and Jews. Total load of bull crap! The Illuminist sell fear, hate, revenge, violence, war and ultimately death. They are death merchants. They are simply manipulating  American and Israeli sheeple to murder Muslims and vice versa.
     
  • Which country is under existential threat? Obviously Iran. There are about 100 warships and submarines, thousands of fighter planes and bombers all loaded up to bomb Iran till kingdom come. There are plans to use nuclear bombs against Iran (and I don’t mean DU bombs). All the plans to destroy Iran are publicly known. All the resolutions to goto war against Iran have been passed. Who are the war mongers: America and Zionist Israel. Americans must not be misled by their Illuminist government. They are simply using you as cannon fodder to satisfy their greed, power lust,world conquest and agenda for depopulation.
     
    Why Iran’s Jews are Better Off Than Gaza’s Palestinians
    Living in Dignity With the Benefits of Citizenship

    25,000 Jews live in Iran. It’s the largest Jewish population in the Middle East outside of Israel. Iranian Jews are not persecuted or abused by the state, in fact, they are protected under Iran’s constitution. They are free to practice their religion and to vote in elections. They are not stopped and searched at checkpoints, they are not brutalized by an occupying army, and they are not herded into a densely-populated penal colony (Gaza) where they are deprived of the basic means of survival. Iranian Jews live in dignity and enjoy the benefits of citizenship.
     
    Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is demonized in the western media. He is called an anti-Semite and the “new Hitler”. But if those claims are true, then why did the majority of Iran’s Jews vote for Ahmadinejad in recent presidential elections? Could it be that most of what we know about Ahmadinejad is just baseless rumor and propaganda? This excerpt appeared in an article by the BBC:
     
    “(Ahmadinejad’s) office recently donated money for Tehran’s Jewish hospital. It is one of only four Jewish charity hospitals worldwide and is funded with money from the Jewish diaspora – something remarkable in Iran where even local aid organizations have difficulty receiving funds from abroad for fear of being accused of being foreign agents.”
     
    When did Hitler ever donate money to Jewish hospitals? The Hitler analogy is a desperate attempt to brainwash Americans. It tells us nothing about what Ahmadinejad is really like. The lies about Ahmadinejad are no different than the lies about Saddam Hussein or Hugo Chavez. The US and Israel are trying to create the justification for another war. That’s why the media credits Ahmadinejad with saying things that he never really said. He never said that he wanted to “wipe Israel off the map”. That’s another fiction. Author Jonathan Cook explains what the Iranian president really said:
     
    “This myth has been endlessly recycled since a translating error was made of a speech Ahmadinejad delivered nearly two years ago. Farsi experts have verified that the Iranian president, far from threatening to destroy Israel, was quoting from an earlier speech by the late Ayatollah Khomeini in which he reassured supporters of the Palestinians that “the Zionist regime in Jerusalem” would “vanish from the page of time.”
     
    He was not threatening to exterminate Jews or even Israel. He was comparing Israel’s occupation of the Palestinians with other illegitimate systems of rule whose time had passed, including the Shahs who once ruled Iran, apartheid South Africa and the Soviet empire. Nonetheless, this erroneous translation has survived and prospered because Israel and its supporters have exploited it for their own crude propaganda purposes.” (“Israel’s Jewish problem in Tehran”, Jonathan Cook, The Electronic Intifada)
     
    Ahmadinejad poses no threat to Israel or the United States. Like everyone else in the Middle East, he just wants a breather from US and Israeli aggression. This is from Wikipedia:
     
    “The U.S. State Department has made claims of discrimination in Iran against Jews. According to its study, Jews may not occupy senior positions in government and are prevented from serving in the judiciary and security services and from becoming public school heads. The study says that Jewish citizens are permitted to obtain passports and to travel outside the country, but they often are denied the multiple-exit permits normally issued to other citizens. Allegations made by the U.S. State Department have been condemned by Iranian Jews. The Association of Tehrani Jews said in a statement, “We Iranian Jews condemn claims of the US State Department on Iranian religious minorities, announced that we are fully free to perform our religious duties and we feel no restriction on performing our religious rituals.”
     
    Who should we believe; the Jews who actually live in Iran or the troublemaking US State Department? There are 6 kosher butcher shops, 11 synagogues and numerous Hebrew schools in Tehran. Neither Ahmadinejad nor any other Iranian government official has made any attempt to close any these facilities down. Never. Iranian Jews are free to travel (or move) to Israel if they chose. They are not imprisoned by an occupying army. They are not deprived of food and medicine. Their children do not grow up with mental disorders brought on by the trauma of sporadic violence. Their families are not blown up by gunships lobbing rounds on the beaches. Their supporters are not crushed by bulldozers or shot in the head with rubber bullets. They are not gassed and beaten when they peacefully demonstrate for their civil liberties. Their leaders are not hunted down and killed in targeted assassinations.
     
    Roger Cohen wrote a very thoughtful essay on the topic for the New York Times. He said:
     
    “Perhaps I have a bias toward facts over words, but I say the reality of Iranian civility toward Jews tells us more about Iran — its sophistication and culture — than all the inflammatory rhetoric. That may be because I’m a Jew and have seldom been treated with such consistent warmth as in Iran. Or perhaps I was impressed that the fury over Gaza, trumpeted on posters and Iranian TV, never spilled over into insults or violence toward Jews. Or perhaps it’s because I’m convinced the “Mad Mullah” caricature of Iran and likening of any compromise with it to Munich 1938 — a position popular in some American Jewish circles — is misleading and dangerous.” (“What Iran’s Jews Say”, Roger Cohen, New York Times)
     
    Things aren’t perfect for Jews living in Iran, but they’re better than they are for Palestinians living in Gaza. Much better.

Gold Manipulation: Central Banks Are Now in Deep Trouble!

  • This is an excellent article and explains what I have been saying all along. The world is heading towards a global economic meltdown and a world currency crisis. Fiat currencies are in trouble and I don’t mean just the USD and Euro. All fiat currencies will be under assault. This coming bust up will result in the systemic meltdown of the current financial order. Got gold yet?
     
    Gold manipulation: Central banks are now in deep trouble
    Central banks have routinely manipulated the gold market since the beginning of fractional reserve banking, but they have always eventually failed in their quest. This time there is circumstantial evidence that we could be on the verge of the most spectacular failure so far.
     
    Physical bullion differs from other investment media because today there is no secondary market. Buyers of bullion are not speculators, or even investors: they take delivery, hoarding it from the market, and are not tempted to resupply it at any price. To some degree this loss from the market has been replaced by newly mined gold and scrap, but the size of the market is such that gold from these sources is now insufficient for hoarding demand. So when the bullion banks try to shake out the bulls, as they have recently, they may manage to reduce their short position in the paper markets; but the lower prices for bullion simply generates extra physical demand. The result is that the size of the paper market has become increasingly dangerous relative to the physical gold actually available.
     
    A fascinating insight into this process is recorded in an interview of one of the leading American coin dealers, who described how the fall in the gold price in 2008 from $1,000 to $700 was the opportunity for hoarders to clean out the market. I quote:
     
    “…all product worldwide disappeared. Within weeks the U.S. Mint was shut down. The Canadian, Austrian, and Australian Mints were all eight to 12 weeks back-ordered or shut down. The Australian Mint stopped taking any new orders in July or August for the rest of the year. The Rand Mint, for the first time ever, sold out of all its product. One wealthy Swiss businessman flew his own 747 there and cleaned them out.”
     
    The interview, which is well worth reading in its entirety, can be found
    here. It is particularly apposite given the recent shake-out in the futures market, raising the question, how much physical disappeared in the process? Not surprisingly, the interviewee is also worried that rising prices will merely generate yet more demand; so the absence of a secondary market is crucial to understanding the problem facing central  and bullion banks today.
     
    For the last fifteen years the European central banks have led attempts to keep the price down. In the last ten years alone, this cartel has officially sold about 3,800 tonnes, all of which is now effectively hoarded. On top of this, they have leased unrecorded amounts of their gold, all sold into the market and now irrecoverable – and still the hoarding continues.
     
    Leasing has had one over-riding purpose, to swamp demand. Thirty years of leasing has fed the hoarders, and provided the feedstock for the futures market, where the bullion banks are also short on their trading books a net 718 tonnes today. This has been going on so long, everyone has become complacent. The result must be the accumulations of the largest short position ever on the bullion banks’ unallocated accounts and on Comex, where logic suggests they should hedge, rather than compound their short positions.
     
    Some
    interesting research by Adrian Douglas suggests that the operational gearing on unallocated accounts is as much as forty five times: in other words the bullion banks only have one ounce of gold for 45 ounces of customer liabilities. If this is even half correct, the implications are frightening. In the absence of a secondary market for physical, just a small rise in prices leaves the bullion banks dangerously exposed.
     
    These conditions are obviously explosive; but why does it matter, other than for reasons of hoarders’ self-protection? Well, central banks are going to have to rescue bullion banks or let them go to the wall. So far, they have always managed to conjure up a rescue, but now that their ammunition has almost run out a covert rescue is very difficult. The task is made more acute by growing instability in both general banking and the global economy. Worse still, the increasing possibility of unrelated systemic failure is fuelling the incentive to hoard.
     
    So here is a major banking crisis in the making, mainly as a result of the central banks’ continual attempts to rig the market finally coming to a head. It is a time when the whole idea of a world monopolised by fiat currencies is losing credibility. Fears of deflation currently dominate central bankers thinking. They dare not address the risk of inflation and nothing would suit central bankers more than the ability to print money without inflationary consequences.
     
    But talk of deflation is intellectually sloppy. It is based on the Irving Fisher theory that falling asset prices lead to a price collapse. This is certainly true of collateralised assets, but that is as far as it goes. The argument does not extend to the means of production, being raw materials and labour. It is true that an asset implosion will affect demand for raw materials and labour but this is a secondary effect and not an even one at that.
     
    The risk of an asset implosion is tied to economic performance. If the recent global trend of failing demand and credit contraction persists, government finances everywhere will rapidly deteriorate. A renewed slump also brings systemic risks. This cannot be permitted, so the monetary imperative is to print, print, print. The effect is simply to undermine the value of fiat currencies, which will be dumped by foreign creditors; and with no reasonable amounts of bullion available, they have no alternative but to stockpile commodities and raw materials instead.
     
    To illustrate the point, China is reducing her exposure to dollars by selling them to buy commodities. The common assumption is that this is only because she is stockpiling to satisfy her own future demand. There is some truth in this, but any asset allocation has to take account of the alternatives: in this case the unattractiveness of holding dollars. Furthermore, selling dollars and buying other paper currencies generates little enthusiasm. Through currency intervention, China is able to acquire depreciating dollars and turn them into metal and oil. She does this because no one will sell her enough gold to replace her dollars. Looked at this way it becomes apparent that a rise in the dollar price of gold becomes a threat to the dollar itself, since gold is the leading proxy for a general basket of commodities.
     
    The threat extends to all fiat currencies. It becomes only a short step for creditor nations such as the Chinese to look upon all their forex dealings in commodity terms. It is thinking like this that the Western central banks are desperate to play down, since it completely undermines their position.
     
    But what can they do? We can rule out a deliberate sharp rise in interest rates. Other than cover up the problem, there is now virtually no solution. Quite simply, there is so little ammunition left that further expenditure of what bullion is still available merely exposes the underlying weakness of the central banks’ position. The central banks’ banker, the Bank for International Settlements, recently made available 346 tonnes to the market, all of which smartly disappeared into the hoarders’ hands. It stank of a last-ditch attempt, and achieved little more than the temporary concealment of yet more hoarding.
     
    The bullion banks can only have become so uncovered on their unallocated accounts with the encouragement of the central banks, since their exposure appears to exceed the maximum fractional reserve basis of ordinary lending by a factor of four. So from a regulatory point of view, no one is looking. The result of a combination of excessive gold-related credit and lack of regulatory oversight has much in common with the events that led to the credit crunch in 2007. The result can be expected to be similarly violent.
     
    What we don’t know today is whether a broader systemic crisis will tip the gold price towards infinity, or whether a gold bullion crisis comes first, triggering a wider systemic collapse. It is too close to call. Either way, it should be spectacular.
