“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all-male clubs, in your houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons will become our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will come to crave and adore us.”

Turkey’s Foreign Military Bases and Their Threat to Stability

Rather than view with alarm Turkey’s announcement that it is building at least three military bases abroad, the United States and NATO have welcomed Ankara’s move as a contribution to stability. Nothing could be further from the truth. Turkey’s duplicitous fingerprints are all over support for terrorist groups like the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Jabhat al-Nusra, and Al-Qaeda in Syria and Iraq, Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Tunisia.

The plans by the Adolf Hitler-praising Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to build military bases in Qatar, Somalia, the Republic of Georgia, and Azerbaijan are in keeping with Turkey’s more aggressive and neo-Ottoman foreign and military policies. Turkey is also building its first aircraft carrier that will extend Turkey’s naval presence into the Red Sea and Indian Ocean.


      The announcement that Turkey is building a base in the Republic of Georgia comes after the Turks announced plans for a military base in Qatar, where 3000 Turkish Continue reading →

Intro

Many people are still utterly oblivious to the sad reality that the mass media is primarily engaged in one task above all others: misleading the public in accordance with the State’s (read: Deep State’s) needs.

Various media tactics play to our already established biases and logical blind spots. It is child’s play to add another layer of disinformation on top of firmly set foundational assumptions that are supportive of it. Nothing is easier for the Cabal/Deep State and its proxy governments than to feed us more of the bullshit we have long since been manipulated into accepting.

We have entered the post-fact era of news reporting, according to some observers, but it appears to me that we’ve been in that era for quite some time now, and only now that public distrust of government and media is at record-high levels is the establishment operating at record-high levels of damage control, busily dubbing all non-State-approved media sources as “fake news,” and struggling harder than ever to keep the people in their conceptual prisons.

Many unwitting folks welcome this activity gladly, failing to realise that the mass media is, in combination with mainstream education, the primary tool used to control the behaviour of the populace in ways that serve the Control System which undermines our freedoms and cripples our minds in a downward spiral of deceit and exploitation.

Below we break down our five current mass media thought-control strategies employed by these “dinosaur outlets “so that we might be somewhat less susceptible to them here on out. You may want to share this with friends who aren’t quite up to speed yet.

Warning: What you are about to read is not government-approved and may result in mind expansion, enhanced cynicism, and sharpening of critical thinking faculties.

5 Primary Strategies for Thought-Control

1. Fake News in the Post-Fact Era: Lie and Fabricate to Suit Your Purposes

As a mass media (State-approved) outlet, you’re free to falsify and confabulate information or make false claims with impunity and make no attempt to appeal to legitimate evidence. This is such a fundamental mainstream media strategy that it saturates us on a daily basis. Whatever the Establishment (the “Cabal”) decrees is repeated ad nauseum as gospel in the mass media.

If you believe I am being unjustly harsh, then please consider the words of Dr. Udo Ulfkatte (from the video above), the late veteran German journalist who not long ago outed mainstream media for its complicity in the global fraud against humanity:

“I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public…It is not right what I have done in the past – to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia…and it is not right what my colleagues do and what they have done in the past, because they are bribed to betray the people…all over Europe…I am fed up with this propaganda.”

Dr. Ulfkatte added that in his pro-American days of writing, he was “supported by the Central Intelligence Agency,” and repeated that he was “fed up with it” and didn’t want to do it anymore. Not long after publishing his explosive book Bought Journalists / Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News, Ulfkatte was found dead, allegedly of “heart failure.” Ponder on that for a moment in the knowledge that in black projects there is electromagnetic weaponry that can remotely simulate or trigger “heart failure” as well as other physiological breakdowns.

Ulfkatte had said that most corporate media journalists in the United States and Europe are “so-called non-official cover,” meaning that they work for an intelligence agency. “I think it is especially the case with British journalists, because they have a much closer relationship. It is especially the case with Israeli journalists. Of course with French journalists…It is the case for Australians, [with] journalists from New Zealand, from Taiwan, well, there is many countries,” he said.

Consider all of this next time you hear any pronouncements made by the media on the subjects of politics, health, medicine, war, terrorism, etc.

Among the bogus stories Ulfkatte says he was ordered by the CIA to plant in his paper was the false claim that Libyan President Moammar Gaddafi was building poison gas factories in 2011.

“The German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia,” he told RT.

Ulfkatte’s words are a plain confession of guilt and complicity. There is no theory here, it is all conspiracy fact. And lest you think the activities of the alphabet agencies are restricted to TV media, think on the following.

“[T]he tycoons told General Butler the American people would accept the new government because they controlled all the newspapers.1 (emphasis added)

This was decades ago, and we know that concentration of the media into the hands of fewer and fewer owners has intensified ever since. The situation is such now that mainstream media outlets are to be avoided across the board by any thinking individual.

Former Washington Post publisher Philip Graham “believing that the function of the press was more often than not to mobilize consent for the policies of the government, was one of the architects of what became a widespread practice: the use and manipulation of journalists by the CIA”. This scandal was known by its code name Operation MOCKINGBIRD. Former Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein cites a former CIA deputy director as saying, “It was widely known that Phil Graham was someone you could get help from”.2

There are countless examples of fraudulent MSM news that could be cited. Iraq’s “weapons of mass destruction” was a pretext for invading Iraq – a pretext that was known by intel. agencies and the US government to be false at the time. It is even openly acknowledged in the mass media now that it was a fraudulent claim – not that it’s any consolation to the tens of thousands of Iraqis who died as a result of the USA’s invasion. The fact is the WMD notion was made up; pure fiction concocted to serve a violent and predatory agenda under the guise of “liberation.”

Let’s not forget the infamous CNN Charles Jaco clip (above) wherein he appears to be giving a fake news report from a stage set while the subtitle states he is in Saudi Arabia during the Desert Storm operation (Jan 17 – Feb 28, 1991). There is something (everything!) exceedingly “off” about this clip and I encourage you to watch it carefully and decide whether this is a classic example of blatantly false news reporting or not (Jaco sent some menacing letters around to websites featuring this video, threatening legal action, so I’m choosing my words carefully here).

There are  many Youtube videos in which apparently fake news reports by mainstream outlets (CNN is a star) have been compiled together for easy viewing. I encourage you to do some exploring if you haven’t already seen the depths these media whores will sink to. It is clear that mainstream outlets are not above using a green screen to create the illusion of being “on the ground” at the scene of the action in order to get the “scoop” on other outlets, or, more to the point, to promote the false narratives designed by the Establishment for our consumption.

The Honourable Mention Goes to…

Crisis actors are known to be employed by media outlets and intel. agencies to participate in staged events with the aim of making their fake news appear authentic. This is something of an open secret of the industry now, and Youtube is your friend on this one too. Youtube compilations and video analyses make it very convenient for us to show that fake news is standard practice for CIA-controlled mass media. Crisis actors, stage sets, props, bogus scripts, sellout journalists: it’s all par for the course for the dying mass media.

2. Denounce Alternative Views as Conspiracy Theories

In 1967 the CIA seeded the term “conspiracy theories/theorists” into the public consciousness with one goal in mind: to discourage free and independent investigation, analysis and open discussion of facts. What sparked this initiative was increasing criticism of the Warren Commision’s report into the assassination of JFK – cracks were starting to appear and be noticed. The CIA was anxious that the public was not being sufficiently thought-controlled and that counter-arguments to the Establishment’s narrative needed to be more effectively dealt with.

The memo, which was marked “psych” (psychological operations), according to zerohedge.com, outlined a number of strategies for shaping and controlling public opinion, all of which are clearly still employed throughout the mass media today. Part 3 (b) of the memo is worth reproducing in full:

To employ propaganda assets to answer and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose. The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passage to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories.4

The CIA strategy involved a self-referencing closed network of assets and allies all endorsing each other and referring the public to each other’s material in an attempt to create the illusion of Establishment credibility, and a “consensus” viewpoint, while simultaneously tarring all other perspectives as mere “conspiracy theories.” It was a neat (read: dirty) trick which has worked wonders for these liars ever since.

Summarising the CIA memo’s guidance, the other pieces of advice for information management included:

  • claim the conspiracy would be too vast for so many people to keep quiet about it
  • dismiss eyewitness testimony as unreliable
  • claim no new evidence has emerged that the authorities have not already considered
  • do not initiate new discussion around “conspiracy theories,” but only address those discussions already taking place (so, ignore the problem wherever possible and don’t draw attention to it)
  • claim it is destructive/unhelpful, or irresponsible to speculate

These strategies are all still visible today in the media’s activities, the same tired old memes and techniques being endlessly repeated to the point of catatonia.

My years of study have shown me one thing very clearly about conspiracies: conspiracies are how the world runs. Obama’s very own Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Cass Sunstein has written:

Of course some conspiracy theories…have turned out to be true. The Watergate hotel room used by Democratic National Committee was, in fact, bugged by Republican officials, operating at the behest of the White House. In the 1950s, the Central Intelligence Agency did, in fact, administer LSD and related drugs under Project MKULTRA, in an effort to investigate the possibility of “mind control.” Operation Northwoods, a rumored plan by the Department of Defense to simulate acts of terrorism and to blame them on Cuba, really was proposed by high-level officials…5

On and on it goes.

3. Blame the Russians (or any of the other invented Establishment bogeymen)

The “Commies” are a tried and true bugaboo that is still used by establishment media to distract us from wherever we should be placing our attention. A recent blatant example is the notion that Russia is somehow responsible for Hillary’s Clinton’s defeat by Trump in the US Presidential elections. The Cabal media will try just about anything to de-legitimise the crushing the defeat their chosen puppet (Hillary Clinton) suffered. Casting aspersions on the outcome was only the natural thing (for them) to do.

The “Red Menace” is not as the Establishment would have us believe, however, that doesn’t stop the US government and media from blaming “the Russians” for supposedly “hacking” the US election and corrupting the outcome. There was no credible evidence provided for their insinuation, of course.

Evidence has not traditionally been the strong suit of the mainstream media.

In fact, a recent Wikileak has revealed that intelligence agencies like the CIA can simulate Russian (or other) hacks by creating a “cyber fingerprint” that incriminates whoever the Establishment wants to scapegoat or demonise, so it is utterly meaningless for the US media (or any other Cabal media outlets) to point fingers at Russia or anyone else for “hacking” their systems in light of the foregoing information. “Russia hacked us” should be read as “we hacked ourselves and tried to pin it on Russia.”

Along with the new (March 2017) data-dump of CIA material, WikiLeaks issued this:

“The CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation. With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the ‘fingerprints’ of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.”6

It’s about misdirection and/or creating a cover story for executing a plan or agenda that you would never publicly admit to, akin to blaming Bin Laden and his lackeys for 9-11 when it was in fact Mossad and key elements within the US government and defense structure. Giving the public a scapegoat also satisfies a “primal” emotional need for focusing attention on a “guilty party,” someone to loathe and fear, and plan and enact retribution against.

The latter is also part of the “problem, reaction, solution” strategy designed to preempt the public into demanding the Establishent’s pre-ordained “solution” to a crisis or disaster that the Establishment itself has engineered but made to look like some other culprit is responsible (see Operation Northwoods for one example that, fortunately, never got off the ground, or 9-11 for an example that unfortunately did).

4. The Hegelian Dialectic and the False Dichotomy:

For the mass media’s purposes, you’re either “pro” or “anti,” “left” or “right,” “liberal” or “conservative,” and there are no other options.

The purpose of the false dichotomy is to restrict thought to two polar opposites that are diametrically opposed, in accordance with the modern bastardized form of the Hegelian dialectic. Hegel’s premise was that the human mind can’t understand anything unless it can be split into two polar opposites, thus his formula was: thesis + antithesis > synthesis. The Hegelian dialectic was meant to be a way for two parties in disagreement to eventually reach understanding (synthesis) through logical argument.

The idea as this concept is applied today by the media is to keep people at loggerheads in an unresolvable stalemate in which the only visible option to each party is to dig heels in even deeper, and attack the other side ever more vigorously. The current equation has omitted the part about logical argument, because that is how the situation has been deliberately engineered to stifle progress.

If you are asking “what is the point of that?” or “who in their right mind would want to have a system like that?” then understand that the international banksters and intelligence agencies (Deep State) – or from a lower level, giant transnational corporations – run the show and have ruled over Western “democracy” for a long time, socially engineering the populace through mass media and deliberately dumbed-down mainstream “education.” This is not a “theory,” but a well documented reality.

The last President of America to challenge the banksters’ hegemony was JFK and we know how that turned out for him when he tried to do the right thing by the people. The globalist oligarchs would have none of it. The slaves must not be allowed to leave the plantation. Ever since JFK, the “right” and the “left” have been controlled by a “para-governmental” force known as the Fed. The Fed, of course, is very much connected to Big Pharma – we’re talking about the same network of elitist sociopaths that dominate the world’s major industries (and run the international pedophile rings), essentially.

The point of the false dichotomy is primarily to foster tunnel vision in the public and prevent intelligent, flexible thinking, instead conducing to simplistic dogmatism and meaningless polemic. Prevention of learning is arguably the primary goal of the false dichotomy, because new information, and more sophisticated thought patterns and paradigms would be the death knell for Big Pharma’s stranglehold over the collective human psyche.

The most topical real world example of how this false dichotomy situation can play out is the “debate” around vaccination.

The media’s job is to present what I call an “absolute ontology” (and to promote “asymmetrical epistemology”) wherein the deck is stacked in favour of the Deep State, the corporations, and their proxy governments.

In essence: one point of view (The Establishment’s) is deemed as intrinsically more valid than all others. How can you topple such a sacred cow? It’s like trying to show a fundamentalist Christian that the Bible is fallible and riddled with self-contradiction – doomed to failure.

Vaccines are simply “safe and effective” – end of story. If you’re not blindly and completely “pro-vax,” then, the only other location you can occupy in this moronic polemic is “anti-vax,” and in the false world crafted by Big Pharma and the media, everyone who is “anti-vax” is a crackpot lunatic worthy of only disdain and ridicule. The question “what if their statements or claims actually have some merit?” is NEVER entertained – it cannot be, for then new information and awareness might develop, and we can’t have that if thought-control is to be maintained.

Crucially, nothing is said about the issues that the “pro” and “anti” representatives appearing in the media are not directly addressing. Attention is fixed on and restricted to whatever is deemed appropriate (how “wonderful” vaccines are), while the most important data is deliberately suppressed.

For example, have you ever seen anyone appear on mainstream TV to discuss vaccination (or fluoride, for that matter) within the context of covert softkill depopulation? I haven’t. What about vaccines and nagalase? No, of course not. The discussion is restricted to a biased narrative about how vaccines “don’t cause autism.” The wider array of biological harm – and evidence supporting it – is not discussed. The hundreds of scientific papers demonstrating the danger of vaccines are verboten.

The “debate” on this subject is farcical at best, but designed to limit opinions to slogans, buzz words, and catchphrases, stifling any actual critical thinking. Absolutely anyone who parrots the party line of “safe and effective and the best thing since sliced bread” is given all of the airtime and praise in the world, while anyone raising serious questions or issues on the subject is marginalised and diminished from the outset by the rigged (government/corporatocracy) narrative.

Keeping discussion reduced to a simple “pro” or “anti” stance means that there is no room for compromise, no middle ground, no room to evolve one’s viewpoint in the light of incoming information and discovery – and more to the point, because those tarred as “anti-vaxxers” are so thoroughly demonised and persecuted, there is little incentive for anyone to depart from the status quo and challenge the herd mentality with independent analysis. Thus, the sheep keep themselves in the pen.

Once the ego has firmly identified with a paradigm it stops listening, stops thinking, stops questioning, and – above all else – stops learning. Perhaps that is why Robert Anton Wilson said that “belief is the death of intelligence.” Stalemate is inevitable with this being the prevailing psychological dynamic, but then again, the purpose of the false dichotomy is not to facilitate real progress, but stifle it.

5. Tell People Exactly What to Think Instead of Presenting the Facts

The idea that the media is a benign force whose mission is to offer balanced perspective and multiple viewpoints such that the public can make their own informed decision is profoundly naive in light of intelligence agency involvement behind the scenes in determining programming content. The idea is to engineer in the public those viewpoints that serve vested interests. Period. Aside from that, most other media content is generally mindless distraction fuel, meaningless fluff for the stupefied masses to titillate themselves with (celebrity gossip, sporting coverage, “feel good” pieces, weather forecasts, etc.). Two real life examples follow.

Example 1: MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski (below) recently made a startling admission of sorts during an exchange with Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough about President Trump possibly “trying to undermine the media.”

She said: “And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, [Trump] could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think. And that, that is our job.”

There you have it, folks, straight from the horse’s as…, er, mouth. It’s “our job” to “control what people think.” It’s there in black and white, in plain English.

Example 2: I have a recent example from more local sources. A friend of mine whose name I won’t mention was recently involved in organising events for a visiting speaker from overseas who has had the Medical Mafia (and Media Mafia) in Australia frothing at the mouth. My friend was speaking to a “journalist” from the Northern Star who offered to “cover” one of the events:

“I said ‘no thank you, you guys haven’t been overly truthful when covering us so far.’
His verbatim response: ‘It’s not our job to be truthful or helpful.’”8

Enough said. What more do you need?

MSNBC and these other media whores around the world are operating from the same playbook that Cabal stooge George W. Bush was on Nov. 10, 2001, when he exhorted the world, “Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories,” thus demonstrating the asymmetrical epistemology that was already so well entrenched during his terro…, er, tenure.

As incompetent and foolish as Shrub came to be perceived by so many millions, many of those same people still unconsciously follow his advice by not tolerating “outrageous [read: any] conspiracy theories.” The CIA/Deep State has done its work well. Credit where it’s due.

Mainstream media control is so centralized now that the only option for the thinking man or woman is to turn to the unregulated information purveyors on the web, where, yes, anything at all can be posted, including suppressed truth, which is a radically different situation to the MSM (fake news), where anything BUT the truth is allowed.

Preppers talk about the day when paper currency becomes worthless and how they plan to barter when things fall apart. But, what will most people do when the government check they depend on stops forever more. Over 50% of the people in America now get some kind of government check every month. That is a question that I think many people have not come to grips with yet. At some point, the checks will stop.

Social security and Medicare are running dry fast and it is only a matter of time before they stop paying out in whole or in part. If someone relies on these payments then they likely do not have sufficient money stored away to survive on in the event payments stop.

Not only that, the many other entitlement payments sent out monthly that are keeping the population clothed, fed and housed will stop at some point as well. When that happens we already know what the result will be, especially in the cities. It is inevitable but many people still trust the government line and do not worry about it.

There are those that realize the threat but have not taken any action to mitigate the problems that will result when the fateful day comes. Many hope it will be forestalled for their lifetimes and some hope if they ignore it, it simply will not happen. If government checks stop it will also mean the destruction of retirement plans and savings accounts and if you do not hold it you will not have it.

One of the most vulnerable groups are the babyboomers that are now retiring at the rate of 10,000 per day. If this growing group suddenly loses their monthly check along with most or all of their savings, it is going to put a lot of pressure on society as these people suddenly try to return to the job market to survive.

With the job market shrinking on a daily basis it is now imperative to develop a backup plan to generate some type of income when you can no longer rely on past promises to be honored. If you can store away some real money or valuable items to utilize later that is great but that will not last you forever.

Anyone that survives the coming currency crisis will be someone that planned ahead and had some way to generate income after everything falls apart. If you can generate income to live on, be it money, food, medicine or some other item you need, you will be able to care for yourself for the duration.

That is going to be a critical element in any long range plan you come up with. This means you will need to have the ability to produce something of value that society will need on a daily basis. The first things people seek out are food, shelter and clothing. Having some abilities in one or more of these areas will be the closest thing to guaranteed sales potential that you can get.

Once these needs have been met by society other things will become important such as energy, security, transportation and medicine. Having some abilities in one or more of these areas will insure income for a long time to come as society rebuilds itself.

If you have abilities in a primary need and a secondary need, you will be way ahead of the majority of the people seeking to survive the chaos that follows the loss of jobs and a functional currency.

This plan could be as simple as growing a small garden to have vegetables and seeds to sell. At the same time it would be little trouble to add a few medicinal plants to your plot. You might be able to offer shelter in the form of a spare room or a cottage in your back yard. You could combine this with transportation or security services. In a breakdown of services, energy would be heavily affected. If you had the ability to produce electricity for refrigeration or ice production or the ability to power a vehicle with a wood gas system, you would have a valuable commodity. The ability to make small wood stoves for people without power would give you a large market for this type of appliance.

It is important to think about all of the systems we rely on every day that people take for granted. This will give you a large list of potential goods or services that you may be able to provide after these things become difficult to get. A few dozen chickens producing eggs in your backyard could be the difference between getting by and suffering terribly.

It is also important to think about the support systems you will need to supply the raw materials to produce your goods or services. Chickens need feed. Wood gas producers need a supply of wood. Making wood stoves requires steel. Growing a garden requires not only the knowledge but seeds, tools and fertilizer.

It is important to keep in mind that retirement is a relatively new invention that came about in the 20th century. Until then, people worked until they literally dropped dead. When the current financial system breaks permanently, people will be forced to go back to work and keep doing so until the day they die. That is the reality many people will have to face in the near future. It is a reality that many have not considered and do not want to think about. You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality. When the government checks stop and your savings are gone, what will you do?

The Complete Breakdown Of Every Hillary And Bill Clinton Speech, And Fee, Since 2013

So due to popular demand, we appended to the 2013 speech detail first released last week the full breakdown of Hillary’s and Bill’s 2014 and 2015 speeches which had been provided previously as part of her mandatory disclosure in May of this year.

As Politico cautions, the disclosure omits an unknown number of speeches that the Clintons delivered while directing the payment or honoraria to the Clinton Foundation, despite instructions on the and guidance from the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, saying that honoraria directed to a charity should be reported.

Still, as readers will note, even the “modest” data that Hillary chose to share is quite stunning.

We hope it will surprise nobody that the bulk of speeches were bought and paid for by Wall Street and affiliated “financial entities” because that’s what hollow populist pandering is all about – pretending to be an “everyday American” while getting paid tens of millions by Wall Street and America’s biggest corporations.

How many millions?

Since 2013 Bill Clinton has been paid $26.6 million for 94 speeches; Hillary’s grand total is slightly less: $21.7 million for 92 private appearances.

Below we present the full breakdown of every publicly disclosed speech event by Hillary Clinton, together with the associated fee.

And likewise for Bill Clinton:

And a visual way of showing the above data.

11 Red Flags As We Enter The Pivotal Month Of August 2015

Red Flags - Public Domain

Are you ready for what is coming in August?  All over America, economic, political and social tensions are building, and the next 30 days could turn out to be pivotal.  In July, we saw things start to turn.  As you will read about below, a major six year trendline for the S&P 500 was finally broken this month, Chinese stocks crashed, commodities crashed, and debt problems started erupting all over the planet.  I fully expect that this next month (August) will be a month of transition as we enter an extremely chaotic time in the fall and winter. 

Things are unfolding in textbook fashion for another major global financial crisis in the months ahead, and yet most people refuse to see what is happening.  In their blind optimism, they want to believe that things will somehow be different this time.  Well, the coming months will definitely reveal who was right and who was wrong.  The following are 11 red flag events that just happened as we enter the pivotal month of August 2015…

#1 Puerto Rico is going to default on a 58 million dollar debt payment that is due on Saturday.  Even though this has serious implications for the U.S. financial system, Barack Obama has said that there will be no bailout for “America’s Greece”.

#2 As James Bailey has pointed out, the most important trendline for the S&P 500 has finally been broken after holding up for six years.  This is a critical technical signal that will likely motivate a significant number of investors to sell off their holdings in the weeks ahead.

#3 The IMF is indicating that it will not take part in the new Greek debt deal.  As a result, the whole thing may completely fall apart

Leaked minutes of the fund’s latest board meeting, which took place on Wednesday, showed staff “cannot reach agreement at this stage” on whether to take part in the new €86bn (£60bn) bailout for Greece. The document said there were doubts over the capacity of the Athens Government to implement economic reforms, as well as the over the sustainability of the country’s sovereign debt pile, which is now projected to hit 200 percent of GDP.

 

The German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, only sanctioned a new Greek deal earlier this month on the condition that the IMF takes part.

#4 Italy is going down the exact same path as Greece, but Italy is going to be a much larger problem for Europe because it has a far, far larger economy.  This week, we learned that youth unemployment in Italy has reached a 38-year high of 44 percent, and Italy’s debt to GDP ratio has now hit 135 percent.

#5 The Canadian economy has officially entered a new recession.  This is something that was not supposed to happen.

#6 The price of oil plummeted close to 20 percent during the month of July.  It was the worst month for the price of oil that we have seen since October 2008, which just happened to be during the height of the last financial crisis.

#7 Commodities just had their worst month in almost four years.  As I have written about previously, we witnessed a collapse in commodity prices just before the stock market crash of 2008 too.

#8 Thanks to Barack Obama, the U.S. coal industry is imploding, and some of the largest coal producers in the entire country have just announced that they are declaring bankruptcy

On Thursday, Bloomberg reported that the biggest American producer of coking coal, Alpha Natural Resources, could file for bankruptcy as soon as Monday.

 

Competitor Walter Energy filed for bankruptcy earlier this month, and several others have done the same this year.

#9 For the month of July, the Shanghai Composite Index was down 13.4 percent.  Despite unprecedented government intervention to prop up the market, it was the worst month for Chinese stocks since October 2009.

#10 A major red flag that a recession in the United States is fast approaching is the fact that Exxon Mobile just announced their worst earnings for a single quarter since 2009.  Compared to the same time period one year ago, Exxon Mobile’s earnings were down 51 percent.

#11 Chevron is another oil giant that has seen earnings plunge.  In the second quarter of this year, Chevron’s earnings were down an eye-popping 90 percent from a year ago.

And in this list I didn’t even mention the economic chaos that is happening down in South America.  For full coverage of that, please see my previous article entitled “The South American Financial Crisis Of 2015“.

To a certain extent, I can understand why most Americans are not alarmed about the months ahead.  The relative stability of the past several years has lulled most of us into a false sense of security, and the mainstream media is assuring everyone that everything is going to be just fine and that brighter days are ahead.  At this point, many believe that it is patently absurd to suggest that we could see an economic collapse in 2015.  But of course even though the signs were glaringly apparent, very few of us anticipated the financial crisis of 2008 either.

A few weeks ago, I authored a piece entitled “The Last Days Of ‘Normal Life’ In America“, and I stand by every single word of that article.  I truly believe that the era of debt-fueled prosperity that we have been enjoying for so long is coming to an end, and our standard of living will never again get back to this level.

Just yesterday, I had the chance to go over and stock up on some emergency supplies at a dollar store.  It always astounds me what you can still buy for a dollar.  The combined cost of raw materials, manufacturing, packaging, shipping and retailing most of these items shouldn’t be less than a dollar, but thanks to having the reserve currency of the world we are still able to go to these big box stores and fill up our carts with lots and lots of extremely inexpensive merchandise.

Unfortunately, this massively inflated standard of living is going to come crashing to a halt.  This next financial crisis is going to destroy the system that is currently producing such comfortable lifestyles for the vast majority of us, and that will be an extremely painful experience.

So enjoy this summer for as long as it lasts.  Even though August threatens to be pivotal, it is going to be nothing compared to what will follow.

Fall and winter are coming.

Prepare while there is still time to do so.

Zoe Konstantopoulou’s speech in the Greek Parliament on 22 July 2015: The complete subordination of a democratic country to the will and demands of other governments is not an agreement

Admittedly the politically and personally painful moments which we have experienced in parliament during this term are multiplying.

In my capacity as Speaker of the House, I sent a letter to the President of the Republic, Mr. Prokopis Pavlopoulos and to Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras (see in French :http://cadtm.org/Lettre-de-Zoe-Konstantopoulou-Le), noting that it is my institutional responsibility to emphasize and underline that the conditions this bill is being introduced under allow no guarantees of compliance with the constitution, no protection of the democratic process or the exercise of legislative power of parliament, nor a conscientious vote by members of parliament (see post-scriptum in http://cadtm.org/Greece-The-Consequences-of-the). Those conditions are blatant blackmail by foreign governments of European Union member States on this government and on the members of parliament. The legal measures are introduced without any possibility of amendment by the parliament as was acknowledged by the Justice Minister, whom I honor and respect deeply, as he knows; their implementation would result in a major intervention in the functioning of justice and the exercise of the fundamental rights of the citizens, tearing down both the functioning of Greek democracy as a social state under the rule of law in which there is a separation of powers according to the Constitution, as well as the preservation of the principle of fair trial.

Ministers are being coerced into introducing legal measures whose contents they do not agree with, but which they are directly opposed to, in this respect the statement by the Justice Minister was telling, and members of parliament are being coerced into voting them, while they too are opposed to their contents, and in this respect every statement by members of parliament in the two parliamentary groups which make up the parliamentary majority was also telling.

All this is happening under the direct threat of a disorderly default and reveal that, in truth, this bill which foreign governments and not the Greek government have chosen as a prerequisite, is an attempt at the completion of a dissolution, since this bill contains a major intervention into the third independent function, which is justice. This bill attempts to undermine the functioning of justice and is lifting basic guarantees to a fair trial and basic and fundamental rights of citizens.

I consider it my institutional duty to react as Speaker of the House as well and to ask my counterparts in all the parliaments of the member States of the European Union, as I have done in the past and as I did in my letter to the President of the European Parliament (see http://cadtm.org/Letter-Addressed-to-President-of ), to react and to take a stand against this dissolution.

Likewise in my letter to the President and the Prime Minister, which I am going to enter in the minutes, I have asked them to formally inform their counterparts of the coercive and forceful conditions under which this vote has occurred.

Minister, I am addressing you in my capacity of the previous parliamentary term. I have addressed you before in this capacity, when I congratulated you for the bills you introduced and especially for your pioneering legislation on the prison system. I am addressing you from the capacity with which I was honored by the parliamentary group of SYRIZA and the current Prime Minister, then opposition leader Mr. Alexis Tsipras, the capacity of the head of the SYRIZA parliamentary group for transparency, justice and human rights and from this capacity I tell you that it is evident that no one in the parliamentary group of SYRIZA endorses the provisions of this bill because the parliamentary group of SYRIZA during the previous period as well, had expressly objected to and strongly opposed this same law, which ironically, is being introduced in an identical form, as it had been introduced by your predecessor Mr Athanassiou, and is being accelerated in a shocking way by the creditors in order to put the nail in the coffin of one more expression of democracy.

Because just like they have attempted to turn the NO of the Greek people into a YES in both the communiqué of the Euro Summit as well as in the previous law introduced here again through emergency procedures last Wednesday, so they are attempting to convert the 93.12% NO of lawyers as recorded in a nationwide referendum for the first time in early December 2014, into a YES.

These deprecating moves against democratic expression are entirely symbolic on the level of a referendum of lawyers and on the level of a nationwide referendum of citizens so that there is no doubt that the message which is being sent by the creditors is that democratic processes are futile, that direct democracy as expressed by citizens or professionals (lawyers, in this case), is irrelevant.
This is a poisonous message for European societies, it is a message that the left and SYRIZA must not allow to be either sent or circulated.

It is clear that what is being attempted is the obliteration of both the government and the parliamentary groups that support it, through blackmail. It is clear that what is being directly questioned is democracy in our country. What is asked of us, what is asked of me, Minister, by the creditors is, in reality, to issue, if I could, a seal that would say, “Greek Parliament” and hand it over to them in order to validate their diktats.

It is not acceptable that after SYRIZA and the committee for justice, rights and transparency struggled so fiercely against the undemocratic manipulation of the 800 pages in the article that was the measures of November 2012, the government be forced by blackmail and humiliation (that is the intention) to now introduce 977 pages, in two articles, one of which contains 1008 articles of the Civil Procedure code and the other 130 articles incorporating a European directive, many of which are 2 and 3 pages long. The government of the left cannot be forced to introduce such abbreviated and condensed, urgent articles, with suffocating deadlines, articles it has consistently denounced in the past.

Minister, I know that by addressing you I am knocking on an open door, because you have consistently fought against such regulations, you have consistently expressed and thoroughly analyzed
all the reasons why this code should have been withdrawn in 2014, and indeed was withdrawn, and that was a great victory not only for the lawyers who put up a struggle in defense of citizens but it was also a huge victory for the citizens’ movements, for all those bodies which were mobilized and it certainly was a huge victory for the main opposition party of the previous period and the opposition as a whole.

This is the victory they want to turn into defeat and destruction in order to once again send the message that we must legislate through fear. Mr Juncker said it today, shamelessly: “fear,” he said, “has led to the agreement”; and is it ever possible for this to be accepted and tolerated in a European Union, which has as its statutory principle the welfare of peoples and societies, the protection of rights and the shielding of democracy?

Minister, the NO of the lawyers on the 2nd and 3d December 2014 meant and still means NO to fast-track foreclosures, NO to auctions and forced expulsions, NO to mock trials on paper to prevent the hearing from proceeding, NO to the further degradation of justice, which is a pillar of democracy, it means NO to a further undermining of the constitutional rights of citizens.

When in the summer of 2014 Mr. Hardouvelis brazenly undertook the obligation to compensate for any consequences of judicial rulings which would annul memorandum provisions, the then opposition, the justice committee and the department of justice of SYRIZA were the first to step forward and say this could not be tolerated. Yet it is that very same bill that is being forced through with blackmail. So it would be good for my colleagues and comrades, whom I honor without exception, not to forget their own commitments and speak of an agreement. Coercion is not an agreement, blackmail is not an agreement, the aim to force the complete subordination of a democratic country to the will and demands of other governments and other countries, is not an agreement.

And we must not forget our commitments because at some point we might forget everything and we might begin referring to the content of this bill as if it was our own. It is not our own, it is not the wish and the will of the government. This is also made evident, Minister, by the fact that you have set up a special committee to examine another draft code of Civil Procedure.

And it is not even the wish of members of parliament, who will vote in favor and belong to parliamentary groups supporting the government. It is not their wish to apply these inhumane measures, which leave citizens (borrowers especially) completely defenceless in front of the banks (see post-scriptum in http://cadtm.org/Greece-The-Consequences-of-the ).

Minister, you know it, but perhaps citizens do not know this well, that the head of the committee that drafted this code was Mr Chamilothoris, who was responsible for the monstrous memorandum law 4055 of 2012, which has been collectively denounced not only by bodies but also by lawyers and representatives of the judiciary and which SYRIZA has pledged to repeal but also, that members of the drafting committee of this legislation which is now being accelerated are legal advisors of the banks. That is who the members of the legislative drafting committee that was formed by the memorandum governments are and there should be no doubt that the objective served is precisely, once more, to hand over of the property of the citizens to the banks, that is the servicing of the banks and the bankers at the expense of citizens.

We must not open the door to allow this objective to be implemented, an objective promoted by the adoption today of this Code of Civil Procedure and here I would ask you specifically and my colleagues who are lawyers, to speak frankly; passing legislation is not a trivial thing, it is not a temporary thing and not a joke. This framework is becoming State law for the first time and indeed, in the form of a code. It is becoming State law that the Greek State is giving way to the banks and ranks after the banks in auction procedures. It is becoming State law that workers give way to the banks and rank after the banks at auctions. It is not enough to say that we vote now and will make sure they will not be applied. When we attempt to stop them from being applied, they will tell us, “but you voted for it”; moreover we know that we ourselves will not be in office permanently, whatever our present position.

This is a piece of legislation that goes into force on 01/01/2016. That proves both that there is no urgency and that it can be discussed under normal conditions but also it raises major concerns in relation to the future aspirations and achievements of those who seek to overthrow this government and to humiliate the political forces that support it, and to prevent them (us) from standing tall in the minds of citizens and of society.

Colleagues, as a member of parliament for SYRIZA I could never vote for this bill; as one formerly in charge of the committee for the control of parliamentary work in issues of justice, transparency and human rights of the Parliamentary Group of SYRIZA, from which position I fought for three years to stop the memoranda attack on justice and civil rights but also the memoranda orgy of corruption and vested interests, I could never vote for this bill; as a lawyer, I could never vote for this bill and as Speaker of the House, I could never legalize procedures which will make Parliament merely decorative, which waive the guarantee function of Parliament, circumventing the conscience of parliamentarians and ultimately discarding democracy. Thank you.

#Establishment #PaedoScandal #FilthyBritain will forever be a source of national shame

Filthy Britain is the term The Coleman Experience has been using to expose VIP paedophilia. I grouped all posts here, for they do include satanic secrets.

From an avid online activist:

“Our government is one that has not only failed to address the problem of an establishment paedophile network, it has been and remains the heart of the problem. The only hope of justice for the victims and a cleansing of our system therefore lies in the hands of the people, in public demonstration and outcry to shed light on the darkest corners of our nation that we have too long neglected.”  http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/01/03/if-british-citizens-do-not-rest-the-control-of-the-establishment-paedophile-scandal-from-the-government-it-will-forever-be-a-source-of-national-shame/

A letter was brought to light by an earlier police investigation in which Napier bragged of being able to send obscene pictures back to the UK in diplomatic bags, and of how easy it was to gain access to young boys in Cairo, where he was working for the British Council.

A search on Google Canada under British Paedophilia brings up a lot of North American media talking about the UK institutionalised paedophilia. You might find the newspapers who published amenable to a story to counter what was said in the British press.

The Cancer Treatment Protection Racket

How the Cancer Act 1939 maintains ineffective cancer treatments
John Smith – 04/2012
The Cancer Act 1939 and similar legislation around the world gives orthodox cancer treatment an undeserved monopoly, ensuring that ineffective but profitable treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy can never be challenged by more effective alternative treatments.

THE TOTNES CANCER HEALTHCARE CONFERENCE (TCHCC) took place on Saturday 24th March 2012 at Eden Rise retreat ten minutes drive from the little town of Totnes in sleepy Devonshire, England. It might not have happened at all because it was almost cancelled by the local Trading Standards, which had been egged on by local MP Dr. Sarah Woolaston and the usual mob of campaigning UK skeptics who argued that the conference was promoting cancer treatments Continue reading →
