Strike on Iran, a Green Light from Washington?!

  • It appears the west will start the Iran war around Aug-Oct 2012! This is an illegal, immoral war of aggression. It has nothing to do with Iran having nuclear weapons. They don’t. It is about the western Illuminati maintaining their global monetary hegemony, world conquest …. setting the stage for the coming Anti-Christ, the bringer of false peace, the white horseman of Revelation 6!

    Strike on Iran, a Green Light from Washington! 
    by , http://www.beaconequity.com/ 
    Reports of the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier battle group setting course to join battle groups USS Lincoln and Vinson in the Arabian Sea and today’s back-to-back announcements regarding the complete termination of Iran’s financial transactions through SWIFT, as well as the announced joint agreement between the U.S. and the UK to release strategic oil reserves into the oil market spells war with Iran.

    After 30 years of various sanctions and hostile rhetoric aimed at Iran, for the U.S. to turn back now, it would have to admit defeat, thus sending a powerful signal that U.S. dollar hegemony is imminently unraveling. Allowing Iran to make the rules concerning payment for its oil will surely embolden other oil producers to follow in step—a step other OPEC members would gladly take if it meant ridding themselves of the hopelessly inadequate U.S. dollar as recompense.

    William R. Clark, author of Petrodollar Warfare: Oil, Iraq and the Future of the Dollar, cites an anonymous source during research for his book. In his essay of 2003, titled, Revisited — The Real Reasons for the Upcoming War With Iraq: A Macroeconomic and Geostrategic Analysis of the Unspoken Truth, Clark penned:

    The Federal Reserve’s greatest nightmare is that OPEC will switch its international transactions from a dollar standard to a euro standard. Iraq actually made this switch in Nov. 2000 (when the euro was worth around 82 cents), and has actually made off like a bandit considering the dollar’s steady depreciation against the euro. (Note: the dollar declined 17% against the euro in 2002.)

    The real reason the Bush administration wants a puppet government in Iraq — or more importantly, the reason why the corporate-military-industrial network conglomerate wants a puppet government in Iraq — is so that it will revert back to a dollar standard and stay that way. (While also hoping to veto any wider OPEC momentum towards the euro, especially from Iran — the 2nd largest OPEC producer who is actively discussing a switch to euros for its oil exports).

    Iran has stopped discussing accepting euros for its oil, but has instead leapfrogged to a more egregious policy of now accepting yen, rials, rubles, renminbi and gold in exchange for its crude. In fact, the Iranians went a step further in January, as to intentionally insult the U.S., by making the announcement that included a gratuitous statement that the policy change in Tehran was suggested by the Russians.

    Within days of the shocking Iranian communique, Russia Today reported that India had agreed to pay with gold for Iranian oil. Then, reports of Japan, Korean and China discussing or making similar arrangements began hitting the news wires.

    “India has reportedly agreed to pay Tehran in gold for the oil it buys, in a move aimed at protecting Delhi from U.S.-sanctions targeting countries who trade with Iran,” RT reported. “China, another buyer of Iranian oil, may follow Delhi’s lead.”

    Moreover, Russia and China followed through with vetoes against Iranian sanction at the United Nations Security Council vote, which elicited a strong response from U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice. Japan and other nations also expressed opposition to U.S. aggression towards Iran now that oil supplies are targeted.

    As to the timetable for an Iranian attack, it’s been suggested that domestic politics have played a role within the Obama administration to, not only enhance his re-election chances, but to aid the Federal Reserve in its dilemma, as well.

    Further so-called ‘quantitative easing’ and the ramifications of inflation has not gone unnoticed by the American people, aided by the popularity of presidential candidate as well as the most threatening opponent of the Fed, Congressman Ron Paul of Texas. Paul has also gained support from voters with his message of returning American troops and closing U.S. military bases worldwide.

Iran: Insane Israeli Hypocrisy And Iraq-Style WMD Lies!

Revelation 2:9 - .... and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • The nuclear threat to the Middle East and the world is not Iran! It is Zionist ‘666’ Israel, the Satanic counterfeit, genocidal state!

    Iran: Insane Israeli Hypocrisy and Iraq-Style WMD Lies! 
    By Mike Cotugno, The Intel Hub 
    This fear mongering about Iran maybe having the potential to possibly build a nuclear bomb (which they are not currently doing) is a desperate propaganda campaign by war profiteers on the hill to preemptively invade a sovereign state (most likely without a declaration of war), so I think it would be a good idea to pump the breaks and go over some basic facts that the dinosaur media conveniently forgets to divulge.

    If we first look at who is intensifying the rhetoric and pushing for “crippling” sanctions on a country that has, as of yet, failed to actually do anything wrong, the finger would have to be pointed squarely at the state of Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    Israel’s PM and other high ranking Israeli state department officials have been telling the US do more to economically weaken the Iranian regime in hopes to ultimately coerce them into ending their nuclear program entirely. But let us turn the spotlight on Israel for a moment and see what kind of moral high ground they have to stand on. There are currently three countries that have never signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

    North Korea had signed the NPT in December of 1985 but withdrew in 2003, making them the only state to ever do so.

    Two of the nations that have never signed the treaty, India and Pakistan, have publicly announced that they possess nuclear arms.

    Israel, the third state refusing to ratify the NPT, is deliberately opaque about their WMD holdings and refuses to say whether they do or do not have nuclear weapons, despite the fact that it is widely understood in the international community that they do.

    In fact, the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) stated in 2009, that Israel had a possible nuclear stockpile of “up to 300-400 weapons” with a “lower limit of 70-100,” while Wikipedia’s aggregated estimate puts the number of nuclear weapons owned by Israel between 75 and 400, potentially more than Pakistan and India combined.

    To review, Iran has none. That’s right, not a single one.
    Now that Israel’s hypocritical position is clear, let’s address their concerns on Iran. Israel claims that Iran is planning on using their nuclear sites to enrich uranium to develop a nuclear bomb, which they would in turn use to attack Israel, prompting Israel to push for a Minority Report style pre-crime offensive against Iran.

    But how does Israel know that Iran is planning to ‘wipe them from the pages of history?’ They don’t. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the authority on international nuclear standards and a subsidiary of the UN which reports directly to the General Assembly and Security Council, Iran definitively does not have a nuclear weapon nor are they attempting to build one.

    The IAEA has visited Iran numerous times over the past decade and have yet to find any proof of Israel and the West’s claims against Iran, even on their most recent visit in January. Ironically, Israel refuses to let the IAEA come and inspect their nuclear facilities for reasons that may seem obvious.

    But let’s say that the IAEA, U.S. intelligence agencies and U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta are all dead wrong and Iran has a bunker two miles underground full of nuclear bombs. What could they actually do with them? What would happen to Iran if they decided to bomb Israel? The answer is that they would be completely decimated by the U.S. and other western powers that would likely defend Israel in such a situation in a matter of minutes.

    If self-preservation is an instinct the Iranians possess, they would know better than to use the nuclear arms that they don’t have on a country they have never explicitly threatened.

    The point I’m trying to make here is that we need to have a rational, well thought out discussion about the merits of sending our troops and spending more money on yet another war that will probably have no definitive goal and no clear cut end.

    There are many more talking points the mainstream media likes to spew that many of the unwashed masses like to regurgitate, but poking holes in the logic of the people most vehemently pushing for yet another military operation in the Middle East should at least prompt skeptics to think twice.

    Remember in 2003 when the talking heads on the major news networks were shrieking that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction, stirring up enough public sentiment to pursue another unconstitutional war when a year later it was revealed that there were actually no such weapons in Iraq and it was all just a ‘mistake’ made by the intelligence community? Oops. We have to be wary of these armchair generals who have intentions and motives that are likely not in line with the common man.

    Beyond just the spats between Israel and Iran, the real danger is that the Chinese (see below) and Russians have both made it clear to the West than an attack on Iran would be treated as a direct threat to their national security – something which they would likely respond to militarily.

    This feeble attempt by the elites to buoy the petro-dollar for another election cycle or two could potentially be the catalyst to WWIII. Let’s just hope the people of the world do not let it come to that.

Making 9 Million Jobless “Vanish”: How The Government Manipulates Unemployment Statistics!

Busted !

  • The monthly unemployment statistics from the US government are just BS. The snakes are telling us things are getting better when the opposite is true! How do you tell when snakes lie? Whenever they move their lips!

    Making 9 Million Jobless “Vanish”: How The Government Manipulates Unemployment Statistics! 
    By Daniel R. Amerman, CFA, http://danielamerman.com/  
    Overview
    When we look at broad measures of jobs and population, then the beginning of 2012 was one of the worst months in US history, with a total of 2.3 million people losing jobs or leaving the workforce in a single month. Yet, the official unemployment rate showed a decline from 8.5% to 8.3% in January – and was such cheering news that it set off a stock rally. How can there be such a stark contrast between the cheerful surface and an underlying reality that is getting worse?

    The true unemployment picture is hidden by essentially splitting jobless Americans up and putting them inside one of three different “boxes”: the official unemployment box, the full unemployment box, and the most obscure box, the workforce participation rate box.

    As we will explore herein, a detailed look at the government’s own data base shows that about 9 million people without jobs have been removed from the labor force simply by the government defining them as not being in the labor force anymore. Indeed – effectively all of the decreases in unemployment rate percentages since 2009 have come not from new jobs, but through reducing the workforce participation rate so that millions of jobless people are removed from the labor force by definition.

    When we pierce through this statistical smoke and mirrors and factor back in those 9 million jobless whom the government has defined out of existence, then the true unemployment rate is 19.9% and rising, and not 8.3% and falling.

    For the small percentage of people who are aware that the purported decline in unemployment rates is primarily based on the mysterious rapid decline in “labor force participation rates” rather than the number of new jobs, the government has a ready and sensible-sounding explanation: the Boomers are beginning to retire in large numbers, and with an aging population, the percentage of adults who are in the workforce should logically be declining.

    Based on in-depth analysis of the government’s own numbers, we will present herein the true picture: 74% of the jobless who have been removed from unemployment calculations are in the 16-54 age bracket, with only 26% in the 55 and above bracket. Yes, the population is aging – but the heart of the workforce participation deception isn’t about the old.

Turkish PM: Israeli Attacks on Gaza Are ‘State Terror’!

  • Zionist, Moshe Sharett, who was Israeli’s first Foreign Minister from 1948-1956, and Prime Minister from 1954-1956 said (emphasis mine):
    In his diary, Sharett quotes a conversation with Army Chief of Staff Moshe Dayan in May 1955:

    We face no danger at all of an Arab advantage of force for the next 8-10 years…Reprisal actions which we couldn’t carry out if we were tied to a security pact are our vital lymph…they make it possible for us to maintain a high level of tension in our population and in the army. Without these actions we would have ceased to be a combative people… “

    Sharett concludes: “The state…. must see the sword as the main if not the only, instrument with which to keep its morale high and to retain its moral tension. Toward this end it may — no it MUST — invent dangers, and to do this it must adopt the method of provocation and revenge…. And above all, let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space.
  • Turkish PM is correct. For too long Zionist ‘666’ Israel have been committing acts of genocide and ethnic cleansing against the Palestinian people! The criminal, neo Nazi state can no longer deceive the world via the Zionist controlled western MSM as in the past. The internet and alternative media are exposing their lies and false flag terrorism. These Zionists initiate false flag terror attacks on their own people so that they can blame the Palestinians for it and initiate mass murder against the Palestinians.

    Turkish PM: Israeli attacks on Gaza are ‘state terror’! 
    By Madison Ruppert, Editor of End the Lie 
    Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan made some quite heated statements in condemnation of the most recent Israeli airstrikes on the Gaza Strip in a speech Tuesday, calling the attacks a “massacre.”

    A cease fire between Gaza militants and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) went into effect Tuesday but there have been reports of rocket attacks despite this agreement. Thus far, according to Israeli news outlet Haaretz, almost 200 rockets have hit Israeli territory since the most recent outbreak of violence began on Friday.

    The Israeli Air Force has conducted some 37 airstrikes on targets in the Gaza Strip, 19 of which supposedly targeted rocket launchers while 18 allegedly targeted weapons warehouses. These attacks have resulted in 26 Palestinian deaths, 22 of which were allegedly militants while four were civilians who had no hand in the rocket fire.

    In a speech to the Turkish parliament, Erdogan called on Israel to “stop the brutal attack against Palestinians and stop the massacre and bloodshed.” He also called the Israeli airstrikes on Palestinians “state terror,” adding that the Turkish people have an obligation to “remember that Gazans are our brothers, and will always remain so.”

    Erdogan has made some similarly strong comments in regards to the Israeli actions in the past, even going as far as to say that any further flotillas which intend to break through the Gaza blockade would be accompanied by Turkish vessels after the massacre on the Mavi Marmara, in addition to claims that Turkey was going to seek legal retribution for the murders. Even considering his fiery words, Erdogan tends to fail to actually follow through, and I honestly doubt that he will take any action against the Israeli attacks.

“ … it turns out the creation of Israel had not, after all, been a haphazard fight in which the Arabs fled their homes at the directives of their own leaders, but it had been an unprovoked, systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing by the Jewish militia involving massacres, terrorism and the wholesale looting of an entire nation.” from 4:22 onwards

Global Liquidity Peak Spells Trouble for Late 2012!

  • This is an interesting piece by Ambrose Pritchard.

    Global liquidity peak spells trouble for late 2012! 
    By , http://www.telegraph.co.uk/ 
    The global liquidity cycle has already rolled over. Assuming that no fresh action is taken, world economic growth will peak within a couple of months and then fade in the second half of the year – with grim implications for Europe’s Latin bloc.

    Data collected by Simon Ward at Henderson Global Investors shows that M1 money supply growth in the big G7 economies and leading E7 emerging powers buckled over the winter. The gauge – known as six-month real narrow money – peaked at 5.1pc in November. It dropped to 3.6pc in January, and to 2.1pc in February.

    This is comparable to falls seen in mid-2008 in the months leading up to the Great Recession, and which caught central banks so badly off guard. “The speed of the drop-off is worrying. This acts with a six months lag time so we can expect global growth to peak in May. There may be a sharp slowdown in the second half,” said Mr Ward.

    If so, this may come as a nasty surprise to equity markets betting that America has reached “escape velocity” at long last, that Europe will scrape by with nothing worse than a light recession, and that China is safely rebounding after touching bottom over of the winter.

    Stephen Jen from SLJ Macro Partners said the world economy is weaker than it looks, with monetary stimulus losing traction in the West just as China, India, Brazil, et al, hit the buffers, constrained by inflation and their own credit woes.

    “The risk here is that the credit cycles in emerging markets mature and start to deflate just as developed markets struggle with their own deleveraging process. We think 2012 will be a tough year for risk assets,” he said.

    Monetary data for China is remarkable. Real M1 contracted in January, weaker than post-Lehman. The rate rebounded in February but only to zero.
    ….
    But bear in mind that China has racked up loan growth of 87pc of GDP over the last five years – according to Fitch study that should be compulsory reading – compared to less than 50pc in Japan leading up to the Nikkei bubble, or in Korea before the 1998 crisis, or in the US before the subprime debacle.

    We know from China Iron and Steel Association that steel output has dropped from 2m tonnes a day last year to 1.7m this year – with chilly implications for Vale and Brazil’s real, or BHP Billiton and the Aussie dollar.

    We know too that R&F Properties in Guangzhou reported a 40pc fall in house sales over the first two months of the year, with a 22pc drop in price. Like others, I am watching the Confucian ‘soft landing’ with curiosity.

Sanctioned Iran Banks Being Cut Off From Global Network!

Stop the war!

  • The covert war by the west against Iran continues. I seriously doubt Iran will take the bait and launch a military attack in reply. They know the history: Japan at Pearl Harbor. The Iranians know that, should they be seen as the aggressor, it will make it much harder for the Russians and Chinese to support them. It appears, the western Illuminati will use Zionist ‘666’ Israel as the useful idiots to start this war! Netanyahu, the genocidal madman, is already chomping at the bit, spewing tons of lies and paranoid delusions.

    Sanctioned Iran Banks Being Cut Off From Global Network! 
    By Indira A.R. Lakshmanan, http://www.bloomberg.com/ 
    One of Iran’s most important links to the world financial system will be severed as part of a stepped-up campaign to pressure Iran’s leaders to abandon any ambitions to develop nuclear weapons.

    The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, known as Swift, the dominant messaging service for international financial transactions, said yesterday it will halt service for some two dozen Iranian banks that have been sanctioned by the European Union, including Iran’s central bank.

    The cutoff, effective March 17 at 4 p.m. London time (noonNew York time), is a response to EU regulations issued yesterday that ban financial messaging services for entities subject to an EU asset freeze.

    “This EU decision forces Swift to take action,” Lázaro Campos, chief executive of Belgium-based Swift, a cooperative of 10,000 member banks and organizations in 210 countries, said in a statement. “Disconnecting banks is an extraordinary and unprecedented step for Swift. It is a direct result of international and multilateral action to intensify financial sanctions against Iran.”

Jim Sinclair: Is The FedRes Selling Europe’s Gold During Interventions?

  • Although, the bullion banksters constantly manipulate the price of gold lower, the physical stock will run low sooner or later. The reality is: it is a gift, a fire sale, before the price of gold/silver explodes inexorably higher!

    Sinclair – Is the Fed Selling Europe’s Gold During Interventions! 
    by www.kingworldnews.com
    Today legendary trader and investor Jim Sinclair told King World News that a number of European countries are beginning to ask themselves where the gold is coming from which is being used for interventions in the gold market. Sinclair also said some European countries are beginning to think it’s their gold, stored by the US Fed, which is being used for these interventions. But first, here is what Sinclair had to say about the recent plunge in gold: “Eric, this has been going on since $248 in gold. Any idea or concern that this kind of intervention is going to cause the gold bull market to cease or shorten or even contain where it will potentially go is simply wrong.”
    ….
    Everybody knows what’s at the Fed, other people’s gold. The trend that we discussed a long time ago which is really turning into a modest torrent, is to take back gold. I mean the truth is what do the Germans need the Fed to store their gold for? Are they afraid France will invade? It doesn’t make any sense.”
