Humanizing Victims of Financial Terrorism!

  • Published on Nov 29, 2013          
    Watch the full Keiser Report: Saturday In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the breatharian diet in central banking where credit is created out of thin air and expected to sustain and nurture the economy. Max suspects that Ben Bernanke is walking on paper, Janet Yellen is doing a Travis Bickle (“You buying from me?”) and both are drilling for fraud with artificially low interest rates. In the second half, Max interviews Stacy Herbert and a red pepper, standing in for Jeremy Scahill, presenter of the documentary film, Dirty Wars. Max and Stacy discuss his film and ask why he didn’t follow the Dirty Money War or provide the context of the history of dirty wars where nuns and dissidents were thrown out of planes across Latin America over a period of decades from the 1950s.

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Former US Treasury Official: China To Dominate US!

Shit_Storm

  • Former US Treasury Official – China To Dominate US! 
    by www.kingworldnews.com
    Today a former US Treasury Official warned King World News that the Chinese are positioning themselves to dominate the US.  He also discussed the desperate situation the US now faces and what all of this means for the battered gold market.  Below is what Dr. Paul Craig Roberts had to say in part I of this powerful interview series.

    Dr. Roberts:  “The United States economy is very ill.  They (central planners) don’t have a solution.  They are locked into printing money.  If they try to stop quantitative easing they have to worry about the bond and the stock markets collapsing, and they have to worry about the balance sheet of the banks….

    “The main purpose of quantitative easing is to support the prices of the debt-related derivatives that are on the banks’ balance sheets.  So, the higher the bond prices, the more solvent the banks appear.  How do you get out of that policy?  You are really trapped in it.  If you stop it you’ve got a financial panic.

State Dept. Minutes Confirm that Whoever has the Most Gold Makes the Rules!

Remember the Golden Rule: "He who has the gold makes the rules!"

Remember the Golden Rule: “He who has the gold makes the rules!”

  • State Dept. Minutes Confirm that Whoever has the Most Gold Makes the Rules! 
    by Chris Powell, Secretary/Treasurer, GATA, http://www.goldseek.com/ 

    Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

    Gold researcher Koos Jansen tonight calls attention to the minutes of a U.S. State Department meeting in April 1974 summoned by Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to consider the danger that the price of gold might get beyond the U.S. government’s control.

    The objective of U.S. policy about gold during this time has not been secret; GATA has cited government records demonstrating it. For example:

    http://www.gata.org/files/ArthurBurnsLetterToPresidentFord-June1975.pdf

    http://www.gata.org/node/12551

    But the minutes published by Jansen tonight are especially remarkable for making explicit the U.S. government’s recognition of what some gold advocates call “the golden rule” — that is, whoever has the most gold makes the rules.

    The meeting is addressing what is perceived as the increasing desire among Western European countries to revalue their gold reserves upward, thereby increasing gold’s role in the international financial system, while U.S. policy has been to demonetize gold so as to leave the U.S. dollar unchallenged as the world reserve currency.

    Secretary Kissinger asks the meeting: “Why is it against our interest to have gold in the system?”

    He is answered by his assistant undersecretary of state for economic and business affairs, Thomas O. Enders.

    The minutes, found by Jansen in the State Department archives in Volume 31 of “Foreign Relations of the United States, 1973-76,” record Kissinger’s exchange with Enders this way:

    * * *
    Mr. Enders: It’s against our interest to have gold in the system because for it to remain there it would result in it being evaluated periodically. Although we have still some substantial gold holdings — about $11 billion — a larger part of the official gold in the world is concentrated in Western Europe. This gives them the dominant position in world reserves and the dominant means of creating reserves. We’ve been trying to get away from that into a system in which we can control …

    Secretary Kissinger: But that’s a balance-of-payments problem.

    Mr. Enders: Yes, but it’s a question of who has the most leverage internationally. If they have the reserve-creating instrument, by having the largest amount of gold and the ability to change its price periodically, they have a position relative to ours of considerable power. For a long time we had a position relative to theirs of considerable power because we could change gold almost at will. This is no longer possible — no longer acceptable. Therefore, we have gone to Special Drawing Rights, which is also equitable and could take account of some of the less-developed-country interests and which spreads the power away from Europe. And it’s more rational in …

    Secretary Kissinger: “More rational” being defined as being more in our interests or what?Mr. Enders: More rational in the sense of more responsive to worldwide needs — but also more in our interest. …
    * * *
    So there you have it. Whoever has the most gold can control its valuation — and implicitly the valuation of every currency — and thereby create the most “reserves,” the most money, money being power. The interest of the United States, at least as it was perceived at that meeting at the State Department in April 1974, was to dominate the world through the power of money creation.

Silver & Gold: When Money Is Corrupted – Hidden Secrets Of Money 5 by Mike Maloney!

  • Silver & Gold: When Money Is Corrupted – Hidden Secrets Of Money 5 – Mike Maloney! 
    by www.HiddenSecretsOfMoney.com, Posted November 26, 2013
    Welcome to the 5th episode of Michael Maloney’s Hidden Secrets Of Money. In this instalment, we travel to Berlin and Frankfurt, where we were able to film the  money museum inside the Bundesbank…one of the world’s largest Central Banks.

    This episode serves as an ideal primer for those waking up to the monetary matrix around them, as it clearly shows the history of true money and why it so important to our freedom. The quality of a society is directly proportional to the quality of its money. Debase a currency for long enough, and you end up with dangerous deficits, debt driven disasters,  and eventually…delusional dictators. History proves this to be true.

    For further insight on what it was like to film inside a central bank, check out the Exclusive Presentation that goes along with this episode at our website. In it, Mike tells what it was like to look at the displays and explanations from an Austrian Economics perspective. He also shows where he believes we are in the following cycles:

    Inflation/Deflation
    Quality Money/Quantity Currency
    Capitalism/Collectivism

    It’s a fantastic 30 minute presentation which also reports on personal freedom, gold and silver,  the US dollar, and economic freedom. Now I’d like to ask you , the reader, to dwell for a minute on Mike’s last question in the video:

    What use is money if you don’t have freedom?

    Enjoy this episode, and please share it far and wide. Drop us a line in the comments section below and let us know how we are doing .

    See you next week,

  • … 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
  • “In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews.” – Quote

Testimony by Dr. Ilan Pappe(Jew) on Genocide in Palestine by Israel !

  • Testimony by Dr. Ilan Pappe on Genocide in Palestine by Israel !   
    by grtv
    The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal Hearing on Palestine–Testimony by Dr. Ilan Pappe.

    On November 22, 2013, the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal (KLWCT) went into the third day of the hearing on genocide and war crimes charges against the State of Israel and Amos Yaron, a retired Israeli army general.

    The tribunal heard the testimony of renowned historian and socialist activist, Prof Ilan Pappe, who informed the tribunal about the systematic ethnic cleansing via expulsion and killing of the Palestinians from their homeland since 1948. Three witnesses from West Bank also gave an account of their trials and tribulations under the Israelis.

    The testimony of Dr. Pappe was an interesting and revealing account of the Israeli leadership strategy to rid the Palestinians from their homeland since the 1940s. He testified that the expulsions were not decided on an ad hoc basis, as other historians have argued, but constituted the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, in accordance with Plan Dalet drawn up in 1947 by Israel’s leaders then.

    He testified that the expulsion of the Palestinians in 1948 constituted ethnic cleansing, as the Zionists movement was not concerned with the native people. He revealed that it was as early as in the 1940s when it began deliberating the fate of the indigenous people of Palestine and that they wanted to take over Palestine with as little Palestinians in it by having them leave voluntarily or be forced out.

    He further revealed that from 1948 until 1949, the plan was enforced by Israeli forces to cleanse villages and towns of Palestinians by encircling the villages/towns from three flanks to intimidate the residents into leaving by leaving one flank open. Some 530 villages were wiped out physically. Under the partition plan, 56% of the land was to be handed to Israel wherein the 2/3 of the population was Palestinians. In the end, 93% of the land came under the control of Israel and 750,000 Palestinians were left out as refugees in neighbouring countries, in Gaza and West Bank. After the 1967 war, Gaza and West Bank were occupied.

    He added that having taken over most of Palestine territories, the policy changed from expelling to destroying the Palestinians. Hence, the Sabra & Shatilla massacre was an attempt to destroy Palestinians in Lebanon.

    He told the tribunal that the use of military action against Palestinians in Gaza and West Bank was considered genocidal against people who cannot defend themselves. Military operations such as Summer Rains, Autumn Clouds, and Cast Lead were just to kill the Palestinians and destroy the economy, culture and their spirit.

    In cross-examination by Amicus Curiae Jason Kay, Prof Pappe agreed that his view of history is a minority view and that while he is grateful that the Zionist movement had saved his parents from the Nazi holocaust for which he is grateful; however, the moral way is to live together with the Palestinians, not expel and kill them.

The Real Black Friday!

  • The Real Black Friday
    by Kurt Nimmo, www.Infowars.com 
    Ebullient consumers mask the real peril of stock market madness

    Black Friday opened with a predictable boom that resounded favorably through the Big Casino on Wall Street. Stocks on the Dow Jones climbed to 22 points to 16,119 soon after opening this morning. Standard & Poor’s index bumped up a modest two points to 1,809 and the Nasdaq jumped 15 points to 4,060.

    “Consumers weren’t the only ones shopping on Black Friday. Stocks pushed even higher into record territory, as investors returned from Thanksgiving break for a short, final day of trading in November,” CNN reports.

    Despite modest gains on the stock market, the hype that revolves around Black Friday seems to be losing some of its media generated luster. The large retails chains – Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy, Kohl’s, JCPenney, Kmart and Toys R Us – have downgraded expectations.

    “Indeed the latest poll from AC Nielsen’s Holiday Spending Forecast study, which surveys over 22,000 households throughout the US, indicates that 85% of consumers plan on skipping the stores on Black Friday this year,” Zerohedge reports. “This is up from 82% in 2012, 82% in 2011 and 80% in 2010 so a negative four-year trend is taking shape. Black Friday shopping seems to be merging with Cyber Monday as well with 51% of consumers say they will do their Black Friday shopping online this year. According to the National Retail Federation, the holiday season generally accounts for about 20% of the retail industry’s annual sales so all eyes will be on retail sales updates/snippets over the weekend.”

    The bullish frame of mind ruling the stock market is little more than voodoo. “We think odds favor some sort of a pullback in the coming weeks and months,”Jonathan Krinsky, chief market technician at MKM Partners, told the Wall Street Journal. For more than a decade, stocks have rallied in late summer only to fall off between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The bump gets harder which each passing year and nobody knows when it will finally bottom out.

  • As part of the Illuminati’s plan for a New World Order, all governments must be made to be seen as part of the problem, as inept, incompetent, corrupt, powerless to solve the problems … etc. You are seeing it happen now! The Illuminati will start wars, racial conflicts, unrest, economic / financial / monetary collapse, famine, mega-deaths, genocide, diseases, ‘natural’ (ie. man-made, think HAARP) disasters … etc. in the next stage of world history.
  • No government in the world will be able to solve these problems. It is deliberate incompetence. The Illuminati are simply executing their psychological operations (psyop) against the sheeple. This is to prepare the sheeple to accept their Man of Sin, the Anti-Christ. When he appears this white horseman will miraculously stop wars, control, organize governments to effectively do their job, institute a new economic, financial and currency order … etc!

  • Ask yourself this: why did Japanese PM Abe nationalized the Senkaku islands? Obviously, he knows it will lead to conflict with China!

    Senkaku row shelved in ’70s: Nonaka

    BEIJING – In a new ripple to Japan’s assertion of ownership of the disputed Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea, former chief Cabinet Secretary Hiromu Nonaka said leaders from Japan and China had agreed to shelve the territory row when the two countries normalized relations in the early 1970s.

    The remark by the former Liberal Democratic heavyweight, a disciple of the late Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka, who cut the normalization deal with Beijing in 1972, contradicts the government’s official stance that there was no such agreement at the time. …. read more!
  • Japan is simply a puppet colony of the western Illuminati! IMO, the Japanese politician snakes have been told to nationalize Senkaku islands to trigger the China and allies vs Japan(+USA) and allies war, as part of the Greater Asia war (India vs Pakistan too). The Chinese Illuminati has agreed to this plan and has been preparing China for war also.
  • It is the sheeple on both sides that are being screwed ! Both Japanese and Chinese sheeple are being marked for death in this coming Satanic genocidal war! Through the Illuminist owned/controlled media, the sheeple will be brainwashed with nationalism: “We must defend our country against foreign invaders!” to fight and kill each other!
  • The end objective is the destruction of China, Japan (and USA) … and all nation states, ie. to destroy national sovereignties. None of these national governments will be able end these genocidal wars! Only the fake messiah, the bringer of false peace, the white horseman of Revelation 6, can end these wars! Order Out of Chaos!

    – 7 batches of 10 Japanese planes consisting of E-767, P-3 and F-15 entered into the zone
    – China has also identified 2 batches of 2 U.S. surveillance planes consisting of P-3 and EP-3, without specifying whether the planes entered into the zone
    China scrambled Su-30, J-11 and other aircraft in response.

    And now it’s China’s turn to, once again, respond. And then Japan and the US again, and so on, until someone gets hurt.

China Warplanes Patrol New ADIZ! Japan ‘Prime Target’ If It Intrudes!

China_Air_force_SU30MKK_fighter_bomber

  • China warplanes patrol new ADIZ! 
    by The Washington Post, AFP-JIJI, via http://www.japantimes.co.jp/ 
    State media: Japan ‘prime target’ if it intrudes

    BEIJING/SEOUL – China said Thursday it had sent warplanes to patrol its newly declared maritime air defense identification zone as a dispute over an island chain racheted up into a dangerous regional standoff.

    The move came after Japan and South Korea announced the same day that they had sent surveillance aircraft of their own into the area over the East China Sea. The United States has joined many of China’s neighbors in condemning its decision Saturday to establish the zone and defied Beijing by flying two B-52 bombers through the area Tuesday.

    A Chinese Air Force spokesman, Col. Shen Jinke, said several fighter jets and an early warning aircraft had been sent on “defensive” air patrols in the ADIZ to “strengthen the monitoring of aerial targets,” following an earlier patrol shortly after the zone was announced, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

    On Friday, Chinese state-run media identified Japan as the “prime target” in the ADIZ, calling for “timely countermeasures without hesitation” if Tokyo defies it. But other countries that have sent military aircraft into the zone, including the United States and South Korea, should be largely ignored, the Global Times said in an editorial headlined “Japan prime target of ADIZ tussle.”

    “We should carry out timely countermeasures without hesitation against Japan when it challenges China’s newly declared ADIZ,” the paper, which is close to the ruling Communist Party, said. “If the U.S. does not go too far, we will not target it in safeguarding our air defense zone. . . . What we should do at present is firmly counter provocative actions from Japan.”

    In announcing the zone’s establishment, China had warned that any noncommercial aircraft entering it without notice could face “defensive emergency measures.” Concern immediately surfaced because it overlapped similar zones operated by Japan and South Korea, encompassing islands controlled by those countries but claimed by China.

    But in a sign of the mixed signals emanating from Beijing this week, a Defense Ministry spokesman said in response to a question that it was “incorrect” to say that countries had the right to shoot down unidentified planes entering air defense identification zones.

    Such zones were neither “no-fly zones” nor territorial airspace, Col. Yang Yujun told a news conference, but were simply meant to give nations time to react to possible threats.

    Experts say China’s decision to unilaterally establish the zone inflamed an already tense situation and raised the possibility of military conflict, including over the Japan-held Senkaku Islands. The latest flights intensify the game of dare being played above Asia’s contested maritime territory.

China Scrambles Military Planes After US and Japan Fly Sorties Into New Zone!

China_Air_Defence_Identification_Zone2

  • China scrambles military planes after US and Japan fly sorties into new zone! 
    by Kristine Kwok, http://www.scmp.com/news/china 
    Tensions rise as US and Japan fly sorties and South Korea puts contested island in its own zone

    Chinese military aircraft were scrambled yesterday after US and Japanese planes flew into the mainland’s new air defence identification zone.

    E
    arlier, South Korea announced plans to include a tiny island contested with China under its own air defence zone, potentially raising the diplomatic temperature further.

    PLA Air Force spokesman Shen Jianke said the air force ordered Su-30 and Qian-11 planes to verify the identity of the aircraft inside the zone yesterday morning.

    The PLA identified two US aircraft and 10 Japanese aircraft. The US planes made two sorties across the zone, while the Japanese made seven.

    Seoul said it had filed an official report informing China about its plan to include Ieo Island as part of its air defence zone, renewing tensions over the submerged rock that has been administered by Seoul but is now covered in Beijing’s new air zone, South Korea’s Chosun Ibo reported yesterday.

    The small rock, which is about 3.4 metres under water, is now home to a research station built by South Korea. Beijing also claims the rock. In June, an official from China’s State Oceanic Administration told Chinese media that Beijing would regularly patrol around Ieo with ships and surveillance aircraft.

    Japan’s air defence zone also covers Ieo. But this does not pose any issue for South Korea as Japan is not a claimant, according to Scott Harold, an associate political scientist at the Rand Corporation.

    Among signs of growing anger, the Taiwanese government said it would complain after Beijing failed to consult Taipei about declaring the zone in the East China Sea.

    The US took the lead to defy Beijing’s rules by sending two unarmed bombers across the area on Tuesday without prior notice. South Korea and Japan followed suit on Thursday.

    Top story this week is the so-called “historic deal” reached with world powers and Iran over curbing Iran’s nuclear program.  Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, called it an “historic mistake.”  It is not just the Israelis who are upset.  Most of the Sunni Arab world is also not happy with the deal that doesn’t stop Iran’s nuclear program.  The White House released bullet points of the deal that claimed to roll back the program and “temporarily freeze” it.  Iran contradicted the White House and said the U.S. was misrepresenting what was agreed upon.    Iran says it confirmed the right to enrich uranium and said it will not stop working on a key reactor.  This “historic deal” may be speeding up the process for war in the region. Remember, Saudi Arabia and Israel have become allies against Iran, and war is very much a possibility.

    In the East China Sea, things are heating up.  China is claiming thousands of square miles of open ocean and the Senkaku islands.  China says it has called this area an “air defense zone.”  Japan, South Korea and Taiwan all say parts of this region belong to them.  The U.S. reportedly has flown B-52 bombers through this zone and is going to be conducting a joint naval exercise with Japan.  Meanwhile, China has reportedly flown fighter jets through the zone.  Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel says the U.S. will side with Japan in this dispute.  This is why U.S. military leaders say China, holding more than $1 trillion in U.S. debt, is a national security issue.  If China sells, it could cripple the U.S. financial system.

    Finally, right before Thanksgiving, the Obama Administration made another change to the Affordable Care Act.  It is now delaying small business enrollment for Obama Care for one year.  I think this is purely a political move because in order for the ACA to work, many have to be forced off the plans they like and be forced to buy much more expensive plans.  The Democrats are just taking too much heat over the millions, so far, who have lost coverage.  As far as the website goes, it is still not functioning correctly. Join Greg Hunter as he gives his analysis on these stories and more in the Weekly News Wrap-Up.
