What Russian Sanctions Mean for Your Money / Politics / Financial Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: Vladimir Putin had a chance to back down from his aggression in the Ukraine after Russian separatists shot down a Malaysian passenger jet.

Unfortunately, he didn't.

With no answer to the charge that the Malaysian jet would not have been shot down but for the course of events he set in motion, Mr. Putin has also shown no indication that he plans to change course.

The West's Reckless Rush Towards War with Russia / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Dr_Martenson

We're taking big risks for unclear reasons

For reasons that have no rational explanations at this time, the US and Europe have embarked on a concerted program to demonize Putin, ostracize Russia, and bring the world as close to a major conflict as it's been since the Cold War, a time hardly memorable to many in the current crop of our elected officials.

Within hours of the MH-17 plane crash, the United States pinned the blame on Russia generally, and Putin particularly. The anti-Putin propaganda (and if there were a stronger term I'd use it) has been relentless and almost comically over-the-top (see image above, and those below).

Israels Final Solution of Turning Gaza Concentration Camp into a Grave Yard / Politics / Israel

By: Videos

Israeli's drunk on the blood of approaching 1,500 dead palestinian civilians, fermented by the religious zeal of a self professed chosen people of God and programmed by state propaganda that even Goebbels would be proud of as Channel 4 news reports on what appears to have been enacted is Israel's own version of the final solution that amounts to turning the Gaza concentration camp into an unlivable graveyard, presenting Gaza's 2 million people with a stark choice either leave or die by either bombardment or starvation as the Jewish fundamentalist state remains in total control of what enters and leaves Gaza.

US Failure: Unintended Consequence / Politics / US Politics

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The contributors are many as actors in the American Tragedy, to cause the systemic breakdown failed state. Faulty monetary policy, economic policy, and political policy have caused the resulting failure. The primary perpetrators are the central bankers, led by Greenspan and Bernanke. These two men have done more to destroy the USEconomy, the US financial structure, the US currency, than any two men of prominence. To be sure, the Bush, Clinton, and Rubin gang played a huge role in the collapse. Their supporting cast of destructive actors is very long, like the serial bank criminals residing on Wall Street. To be sure, the system itself has played a key role in the harmful factors. The two most apparent harmful resident factors are the strong US labor unions and the influential environmental movement, which together encouraged the vast outsourcing of US industry at first to the Pacific Rim, and then fanning across the developing world. Both workmen compensation and OSHEA regulations interfered with US cost settings, but not as much as USGovt corporate taxes. The textile industry went to India and Pakistan, even Bangladesh. Call centers went to India, Philippines, even Costa Rica. The culprits are too numerous to cite.

Echoes Of The Great War – Only An Echo In The Elite Mind / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Andrew_McKillop

Then and Now
There are plenty of similarities, and vast differences between 1914 and 2014.  Just for starters, what is called “public opinion” in western society practically did not exist at all in the run-up to world war in 1914. Today it exists but is heavily mutated and totally unpredictable compared with even 20 years ago.

The Something For Nothing Society Death Spiral / Politics / Social Issues

By: Ty_Andros

This is part II of IV of Useful Idiots and The Something for Nothing Society. In part I, we covered the beginning of the evolution from a capitalist constitutional republic during Teddy Roosevelt's presidency a century ago into the progressive socialist state we have become today. This transformation has taken over a century and has been implemented in such an incremental manner as to be mostly imperceptible to the public at large. It began with the creation of the Federal Reserve (privately owned central bank owned by multi-century banking families) and UNSOUND money (which transformed money from a place to store your savings and labor and a store of value which moved your savings into the future, into an instrument of confiscation, theft and exploitation of the public). The other element of the road to serfdom was the personal income tax, also implemented at that time. This series is a connect the dots exercise designed to allow you to see the enormity and inevitability of the societal collapse we find ourselves in. Its causes, the system that is in place driving it forward and the reality of our situations, better allow you to see and prepare for its demise, hopefully benefitting from it. It is the greatest opportunity in history but requires a keen understanding of history and Austrian economics which has predicted it all. The history of this collapse of empires is being presented to you in this series.

The Social Memory Dump, Shredding Society / Politics / Social Issues

By: Andrew_McKillop

Intoxicating “the people” or “the mass” with permanent over-information of the trivial sort can be taken as the Aldous Huxley theory of the breakdown of society – to compare with the George Orwell theory where an all-powerful police state severely limits all information except pure propaganda (see for example http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-30/aldous-huxley-vs-george-orwell). I suggest we in fact have suffered a converging twin track of both “strategies” in western society today, including the ultimate in disinformation which is the suppression of the ability to understand, know, and act in consequence of what we know.

No More School in Gaza Because All the Children are Dead Chant Israel's Jewish Fundementalists / Politics / Israel

By: Videos

Channel 4 News shows once more shows how far Israel has drifted towards becoming a Neo-Nazi state as illustrated by the fact that over 90% of Israeli's support the War on the Children of Gaza with many Israeli Jewish Fundamentalists drunk on the kool-aid of the assumption of being the self prophessed chosen people of God, can be heard chanting "there is no more school in Gaza because all of the children are dead".

The Iron Dome Inside The Heads of Israel’s Leaders / Politics / Israel

By: Danny_Schechter

New York, New York: When you go to a dictionary to look up dome, you find lots of references to hemispherical structures or forms.  You also find that it is slang word for the head.

And so, it may not be much of a stretch to look at the “Iron Dome” counter-missile system utilized by the Israeli forces as a perfect metaphor for the men authorizing its deployment and use, the iron domes of the heads who head up Israel’s military, and orchestrate its most assuredly not defensive war against Gaza.

Rogue States And Loony Tunes / Politics / US Politics

By: Andrew_McKillop

The Term No Longer Exists
According to the semi-official Encyclopedia of the New American Nation, published by the University of Michigan, the term “rogue state” ceased being used by any US agency or politician in year 2000. It says American foreign policymakers had used the terms "rogue," "outlaw," and "backlash" states almost interchangeably as the Cold War reached its end. It says that as early as July 1985, President Reagan asserted that "We are not going to tolerate attacks from outlaw states by the strangest collection of misfits, loony tunes, and squalid criminals since the advent of the Third Reich". It was during Clinton's two administrations that “rogue state” had its heyday.

Our Totalitarian Future - Totalitarianism NOW! / Politics / Social Issues

By: James_Quinn

“Where the republican or limited monarchical tradition is weak, the best of constitutions will not prevent ambi­tious politicians from succumbing with glee and gusto to the temptations of power. And in any country where numbers have begun to press heavily upon avail­able resources, these temptations cannot fail to arise. Over-population leads to economic insecurity and so­cial unrest. Unrest and insecurity lead to more con­trol by central governments and an increase of their power. In the absence of a constitutional tradition, this increased power will probably be exercised in a dictatorial fashion.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World Revisited – 1958

Designer War By Default - Seven Types of Elite Madness / Politics / GeoPolitics

By: Andrew_McKillop

The straight majority of all major wars, and many minor wars are disputed as to their exact causes and origins. Historians debating the causes, in the plural, of World War I are still far from any consensus on how this war started. Put another way, their causes are unknown or even impossible to know.

Eccentric, strange or deranged political decisions and elite behaviour obviously aid the process. Elites living in a special world where fantasy blots out reality can easily have what is called a split mind. Also called schizophrenia, its earliest definition and clinical description of how schizoid denial of reality works was in 1911, by the Swiss psychologist Eugen Bleuler.

Why Israel Should NOT Exist, Just Like Any Other Rogue State / Politics / Israel

By: Andrew_McKillop

Before I am instantly accused of antisemitism, I add that in my opinion all nation states are Rogue States and only some, like Israel are intensely rogue, or if that is not an adjective they are “rogueish”. In other words the intense ones are a permanent threat to peace, while the others are only a constant background threat to peace. The only difference.

Western Media Only a Tinge of Sadness for Gaza Slaughter / Politics / Mainstream Media

By: Andrew_McKillop

Only A Tinge of Sadness
In a highly predictable article slavishly supporting Israel's blitzkrieg in Gaza, but starting to have doubts about it, the 'Wall Street Journal', July 29, has the bare-faced audacity to tell its readers that the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr has been “tinged with sadness”. The Eid brought a brief lull in the fighting between Israel and Hamas “but instead of the customary feasting and celebration families were counting their dead and injured”. They were of course only “tinged” with sadness.

Our Population Growth Totalitarian Future / Politics / Demographics

By: James_Quinn

“On the first Christmas Day the population of our planet was about two hundred and fifty millions — less than half the population of modern China. Sixteen cen­turies later, when the Pilgrim Fathers landed at Plym­outh Rock, human numbers had climbed to a little more than five hundred millions. By the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, world pop­ulation had passed the seven hundred million mark. In 1931, when I was writing Brave New World, it stood at just under two billions. Today, only twenty-seven years later, there are two billion eight hundred million of us. And tomorrow — what?” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World Revisited – 1958

2. Imperialism

At this point, you may want to consider making it personal. Your government, wherever you are in the west, but especially in the US, takes you for a bunch of fools they can feed anything at all and fully expect you to believe all of it. As for the media who convey government messages, it’s up in the air whether they too take you for a flock of dimwits, or are just plain fools themselves. As for your families, friends and neighbors, you decide.

Mossad in Gaza, Ukraine and the Cult Of The All-Powerful Elite / Politics / Intelligence Agencies

By: Andrew_McKillop

What the MH17 Disaster Proves
To date, as of end July, it proves that conspiracy theorists can beat their favorite gong – of evil and all-powerful elites in Washington, Brussels and Kiev creating a false flag to blacken separatists in eastern Ukraine as “terrorists”. So far and to date, we have not heard how Mossad was involved, but it likely has plenty to do in Gaza running a 2014 version of the Warsaw ghetto uprising of 1944 and its savage repression by the Nazis. Keeping the pot of hate boiling over, as any secret service should do.
