Tensions Rise As US Announces Military Drills Near Embattled Venezuela

  • Tensions Rise As US Announces Military Drills Near Embattled Venezuela
    by , http://theantimedia.org/
    (MPNThe involvement of the U.S. military in an upcoming multilateral military drill in South America has raised concerns over potential ulterior motives on the part of the U.S. The drill, dubbed “Operation: America United,” will involve the installation of a temporary military base on the triple border shared by the drill’s other participating nations: Peru, Brazil and Colombia.

    According to Theofilo de Oliveira, the top general of the Brazilian Armed Forces, the U.S. military will carry out the drill along with the three Latin American nations this November over a period of ten days. The Brazilian military has asserted that the objective of the exercise is to “ develop greater knowledge, share experiences and develop mutual trust.” Brazilian government officials have strongly denied rumors that the exercise will lead to the establishment of a multinational military base in the Amazon.

    The U.S. was invited to participate by Brazil’s unelected president Michel Temer, who has notably boosted Brazilian military spending by 36 percent while simultaneously freezing public spending for two decades through a controversial constitutional amendment.

    A friendly relationship with Brazil’s military is key for the U.S.’ strategic interest in South America. As Hector Luis Saint Pierre – coordinator of international security, defense and strategy at the Brazilian Association of International Relations – told the BBC: “Brazil is a strategic partner for the doctrine of the military. If the United States has a good relationship with the Brazilian navy, it is easier to spread its message among the military in the region.”

    Pierre pointed out that the drill is of particular interest to the U.S., as it presents an opportunity to focus on the political situation in Venezuela. According to Telesur, President Donald Trump has already met with the presidents of Peru and Colombia to discuss the U.S.’ interest in Venezuela.

    As MintPress has previously reported, Venezuela has been the target of ongoing economic warfare as the U.S. continues to disrupt the leftist government first brought to power by the late Hugo Chávez. While Nicolás Maduro – Chávez’s successor – certainly bears some of the blame for Venezuela’s current situation, the U.S. has worked to covertly devastate the Venezuelan economy through a combination of sanctions and oil price manipulation.

IMF Admits Disastrous Love Affair With The Euro And Apologises for The Immolation of Greece

imf-and-world-bank-keeps-africa-poor

  • The International Mafia Federation feigning sorrow over its deliberate actions to destroy Greece. The snakes pretending to be remorseful for their deliberate incompetence in economics. Something they are supposed to be the experts in.
  • IMF Admits Disastrous Love Affair with the Euro And Apologises for The Immolation of Greece
    by The International Monetary Fund’s top staff misled their own board, made a series of calamitous misjudgments in Greece, became euphoric cheerleaders for the euro project, ignored warning signs of impending crisis, and collectively failed to grasp an elemental concept of currency theory. 

    This is the lacerating verdict of the IMF’s top watchdog on the fund’s tangled political role in the eurozone debt crisis, the most damaging episode in the history of the Bretton Woods institutions. 

    It describes a “culture of complacency”, prone to “superficial and mechanistic” analysis, and traces a shocking breakdown in the governance of the IMF, leaving it unclear who is ultimately in charge of this extremely powerful organisation. 

    The report by the IMF’s Independent Evaluation Office (IEO) goes above the head of the managing director, Christine Lagarde. It answers solely to the board of executive directors, and those from Asia and Latin America are clearly incensed at the way European Union insiders used the fund to rescue their own rich currency union and banking system.

    The three main bailouts for Greece, Portugal and Ireland were unprecedented in scale and character. The trio were each allowed to borrow over 2,000pc of their allocated quota – more than three times the normal limit – and accounted for 80pc of all lending by the fund between 2011 and 2014.

Venezuela Readies Biggest Military Exercise in Its History

  • Gerald Celente: “When all else fail, they take you to war!” War is simply the mass culling of the sheeple by the ruling Illuminist elites.
  • Venezuela Readies Biggest Military Exercise in Its History
    by  andrewrosati, http://www.bloomberg.com/  
    * Exercises come as opposition pushes for ousting of president
    * Defense Minister says it’s first mobilization of its kind 

    Venezuela is preparing for the biggest military exercises in its history this Saturday after the South American country’s government said it’s on high alert as the opposition pushes for a recall referendum on President Nicolas Maduro.

    “Venezuela is threatened,” Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez said on state television Thursday. “This is the first time we are carrying out an exercise of this nature in the country. In terms of national reach, it’s going to be in every strategic region.”

    Maduro announced the exercises last weekend, a day after pledging to prolong his government’s special emergency powers. In a rambling news conference on Tuesday, Maduro said U.S. spy planes including a Boeing 707 E-3 Sentry had entered the country’s airspace illegally this month. The nation is already on an elevated state of alert after the U.S. renewed a presidential decree that said the South American country is a threat to its national security, Padrino Lopez said.

    Opposition Governor Henrique Capriles said a “moment of truth” had arrived for the country’s Armed Forces Tuesday, a day before security forces used tear gas to turn back anti-government protesters in central Caracas.

Janet Yellen Meets With Obama in Emergency Meetings As Crises Erupt Worldwide

Global economic, financial and currency meltdown approaching!

Global economic, financial and currency meltdown approaching!

  • Janet Yellen Meets With Obama in Emergency Meetings As Crises Erupt Worldwide
    by The Credit Suisse Fear Barometer just hit an all-time high as reports circulated through the alternative media that Barack Obama discussed the imposition of martial law when he and Vice President Joe Biden met with Yellen on Monday in an “emergency meeting.”

    The reports may be exaggerated but not the crisis-like feel of the meetings. This was reportedly a first: having the president and VP meeting directly with the Fed head. Does it have something to do with the “survival of the government” at a time when the US banking system may be facing a general default? According to some reports: “Members of the House and Senate are said to have been ‘up all night’ in discussions and meetings; with floods of phone calls back and forth. ”

    Pick of Problems
    What could be the problem?  Take your pick of dozens, literally!

    There’s South America’s largest country, Brazil.  It has the seventh largest economy in the world but these days it is mired in what’s been called a “depression.” Employment has cratered and price inflation keeps rising, bringing people out onto the streets in huge protests. Meanwhile, the huge corruption scandal having to do with Petrobas has sent many pols to jail and may soon claim the president who is facing impeachment.

    In Venezuela, where I just visited (and barely survived), to see hyperinflation in person the country is on the brink, pushed to the edge by the oil price collapse. People carry around backpacks full of Bolivars to get through the day. The murder rate in Caracas is so bad that people don’t go out at night. The morgues are full.  The streets are empty.

    Austria just made a historical first with its first bank “bail-in” amidst hurried meetings in Europe.  The failed Hypo Alpe Adria  bank – the Heta Asset Resolution AG – was forced by creditors into an involuntary “bail-in” after an $8.5 billion capital hole in its balance sheet became apparent. Austria is the first to use a new law now part of the European Bank Recovery and Resolution Directive to share losses of a failed bank with senior creditors as a way to slash bank debt.  It won’t work though.  This will see investors piling out of bank stocks which, in itself, can cause the bank to fail.  And once that happens, then the Cyprus-style depositor bail-ins begin.

Economic Collapse Is Erupting All Over The Planet As Global Leaders Begin To Panic

Global_Economic_Collapse_accelerates

  • Economic Collapse Is Erupting All Over The Planet As Global Leaders Begin To Panic
    by Michael Snyder, http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/  
    Mainstream news outlets are already starting to use the phrase “economic collapse” to describe what is going on in some areas of our world right now.  For many Americans this may seem a bit strange, but the truth is that the worldwide economic slowdown that began during the second half of last year is starting to get a lot worse.  In this article, we are going to examine evidence of this from South America, Europe, Asia and North America.  Once we are done, it should be obvious that there is absolutely no reason to be optimistic about the direction of the global economy right now.  The warnings of so many prominent experts are now becoming a reality, and what we have witnessed so far are just the early chapters of a crushing economic crisis that will affect every man, woman and child in the entire world.

    Let’s start with Brazil.  It has the 7th largest economy on the entire planet, and it is already enduring its worst recession in 25 years.  In fact, at the end of last year Goldman Sachs said that what was going on down there was actually a “depression“.

    But now the crisis in Brazil has escalated significantly. I want to share with you an excerpt from a recent article entitled “Brazil: Economic collapse worse than feared“.  I know, that title sounds like it comes directly from The Economic Collapse Blog, but I didn’t write it. It actually comes from CNN… 

    Amid political chaos, Brazil’s economic collapse is worse than its government once believed.

‘Operation Barbarossa 2’: “Overpopulation” and the Funding of World War III

henry-kissinger-control-food-Oil

  • ‘Operation Barbarossa 2’: “Overpopulation” and the Funding of World War III
    by Peter Koenig, http://www.globalresearch.ca/  
    “Wars are horrible. The only good thing about wars is that they help reduce the world population.”

    These are the words flung in my face not too long ago, by a person I thought was close to me. I was in shock and asked what do you mean?

    “Well, don’t you think the world is over-populated?”

    – I couldn’t believe that these were the thoughts of somebody I had respected. They may well be the thoughts of common people in my close vicinity. By opening my eyes to a dimension I ignored until then – the secret thoughts and dreams of people, maybe of the masses began revealing themselves; thoughts that are expressed only in an ambiance of familiarity, or perhaps when ‘under the influence’, when often the inner-most truths come to the fore.

    Over-population is a western ego-centric phantasy. Western Comfort is afraid of having to share some of their excesses with the poor under-humans of so-called developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America – the slowly emerging Continents that have been raped for hundreds of years by precisely the same western colonialists which today claim over-population and wage war around the world in a new form of colonialism.

    According to FAO – the UN’s World Food Organization – the globe’s current agricultural potential could feed at least 12 billion people, if only the food would not be subject to speculation and would be properly distributed. But it isn’t. Food crop speculators in the US and in Europe, command the price – they literally control who may live and who must die – by famine.

    According to the World Bank, 80% of the food-price hike induced famine of 2008 / 2009 that precipitated the death of 2 million people in Asia and Africa was the result of food speculation. Three weeks ago, the Swiss Government recommended its electorate to reject a Swiss socialist-led people’s initiative against food speculation. Their main arguments were denial that food speculation caused famine; and “if we forbid food speculation, the speculators will leave Switzerland and make their profit elsewhere”. With the prevailing neoliberal thinking: Profit über Alles, ethics has no place. The Swiss populace indeed complied and rejected the initiative with a margin of almost 2:3. The financial centers of Switzerland in Zurich and Geneva control some of the largest food speculators in the world. The nefarious speculative business practices of Place Finance Suisse are alive and well.

    Thoughts and clandestine desires of population reduction and faraway wars are most likely the unconscious results of decades of horrendous western propaganda seeking in one way or another popular consensus that wars are necessary, wars are normal, wars is what people had since ‘the beginning’. What beginning? – Most certainly the beginning of the atrociously violent and greed driven Judo-Christian era, some six thousand years ago.

    The justification for continuous conflicts and killing is precisely what the western media are propagating day-in-day-out – terror that has to be fought by wars. If there is not enough terror to rationalize a war, terror has to be manufactured – by false flags. The west has perfected the science of constructing false flags – so credibly that the masses are screaming for more police and military protection; so credibly that the masses want more wars in far-away overseas places, more wars for their protection, for the protection of their comfort; so credibly that western societies gladly give away their civil rights for more police and military protection. As an example, following the January and November 2015 ‘terror attacks’ in Paris, President Hollande is attempting to put a State of Emergency permanently into the French Constitution. So far it has been blocked by Parliament.

    The propaganda now, as well as then, spreads fear. When man is fearful, he is most vulnerable and can easily be manipulated.

The Economic Collapse Of South America Is Well Underway

Global_Economic_Collapse_accelerates

  • The Economic Collapse Of South America Is Well Underway
    by Michael Snyder, http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/  
    The 7th largest economy on the entire planet is completely imploding.  I have written previously about the economic depression that is plaguing Brazil, but since my last article it has gotten much, much worse.  During 2015, Brazil’s economy shrank by 3.8 percent, but for the most recent quarter the decline was 5.89 percent on a year over year basis.  Unemployment is rising rapidly, the inflation rate is up over 10 percent, and Brazilian currency has lost 24 percent of its value compared to the U.S. dollar over the past 12 months.

    At this point, Brazil is already experiencing its longest economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, and things are getting worse for ordinary Brazilians every single day.  The following comes from CNN… 

    But with Brazil plunging into its worst recession in over two decades — hopes for a brighter future are fading. The Brazilian economy shrank 3.8% in 2015, according to government data published Thursday. That’s the biggest annual drop since 1990 and the country is in its longest recession since the 1930s.

    I have never seen anything like this,” said Alves, 24, as he stood on his balcony overlooking Rocinha, a massive lower middle class neighborhood or favela in Rio de Janeiro where he grew up. “My parents would tell me about hard times, but today it is really tough. Prices are going up every day.”

Theories Develop After Scientists Find NO Link Between Zika Virus & Birth Defects

  • Published on Feb 18, 2016
    The outbreak of Zika has made the news, largely due to a possible link with microcephaly – a birth defect that causes abnormally small head sizes in babies. But a group of Argentinean scientists have put forth a provocative argument: that a pesticide in Brazil’s drinking water is really to blame for the sudden explosion of a normally rare defect. RT’s Simone Del Rosario reports.

True Cause of Microcephaly Outbreak Found ! Not Zika Virus?

  • Published on Feb 15, 2016
    Two weeks ago Jon Rappaport accused pesticides of being the true cause of the Microcephaly outbreak currently being blamed in the Zika. Last weekend Tech times reported on a group of Argentine physicians have discovered another possible link: the larvicide Pyriproxyfen. The larvicide was dumped into the water supplies of Brazi in 2014 in an attempt to stop mosquito larva from orming in drinking water tanks. The physicians said that “Malformations detected in thousands of children from pregnant women living in areas where the Brazilian state added pyriproxyfen to drinking water is not a coincidence”
