This is one of many, many campaigns that happen all the time and never make it into the public domain,” said Alexander Klimburg, a cyber security expert at the Austrian Institute for International Affairs. A cyber security agency in Iran said on its English website that Flame bore a “close relation” to Stuxnet, the notorious computer worm that attacked that country’s nuclear program in 2010 and is the first publicly known example of a cyber weapon.
Tens of billions of funding support for European banks appears to have shifted to the emergency lending assistance program of the European Central Bank from the long-term refinancing operations, an indication that some European banks may be in dire financial straits, reports CNBC’s John Carney.
“In contending that the fiscal treaty will solve our dilemma, the European Commission and European Central Bank [cnbc explains] are pissing down Ireland’s back and telling us it’s raining,” David McWilliams, one of the country’s best-known economists, wrote in the Financial Times Tuesday.
Ethos,(2011) a powerful documentary hosted by actor Woody Harrelson, is an investigation into the flaws in our systems, and the mechanisms that work against democracy, our environment and the the common good. With a stunning depth of research and breadth of analysis, this film delves deep into the inter-connected worlds of Politics, Multi-National Corporations and the Media. Most of us have wondered at some point how we have arrived at a situation where democracy is touted as having created an equal society when all we see is injustice and corruption. Politicians openly deceive the public with the support of major corporations and the mainstream media. Wars are waged, the environment is destroyed and inequality is on the rise. But what is the source of these institutional mechanisms which when we scratch the surface are so clearly anti-democratic, so contradictory to the values we hold in common and yet so firmly embedded that they seem beyond discussion? Ethos opens a Pandoras box that has its roots in the cross-roads where capitalism meets-democracy, implicates every power-elite puts profit before people and finally offers a solution whereby you the viewer can regain control using the one thing they do care about…., your cash.
Now the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has finally realized that he can no longer deny the painfully obvious, and thus has stated that the footprints of so-called “established terrorist groups” can be observed in the recent bombings in Syria.
The blockage is due to the fact that the Economic and Monetary Union is system-atically dysfunctional and will eventually be unwound or restructured. We should act on that truth, rather than on the fiction that we can rely on Brussels. But in no circums-tances can we rely on you. If Fianna Fail — and notably Brian Lenihan — had listened to David McWilliams in September 2008 they would still be in power. If you listened more to what McWilliams says forcibly on the folly of a single currency and the futility of austerity, you would have done the country vastly better service. Instead
It’s been outright silence and denial concerning the chemtrail phenomenon since they started this insidious program in the early 90′s. While the aerosol spraying is “as plain as the nose on your face”, public discussion has been held off almost entirely so the vast majority would continue to not even notice. But they’re ever so slowly changing their tune.
What happens when Monsanto’s modified creations get out of hand and threaten the biosphere with mutated ‘super weeds’ that continue to suffocate farmland across the entire planet? Experts call upon farmers and government officials to return to traditional sustainable farming practices — the kind without Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. It was recently reported by the media (despite them always being quite, and NaturalSociety and others reporting on this extensively back in 2011) that a “fast-spreading plague” of the super weeds is spreading and they will not be stopped easily.
War mentality has saturated Washington and arms merchants want to benefit, says Congressman (d) Dennis Kucinich. He opposes sanctions against Tehran that could lead to war, and is sure the US should forget about trying to conquer other countries.
Science fiction writer also called for elimination of 5 billion people (PaulWatson) – Global warming alarmist Elizabeth Moon’s call for all babies to be forcibly implanted with a microchip to ensure that “anonymity would be impossible” is yet another startling example of eco-fascism baring its teeth.
While the international ACTA treaty and United States’ CISPA legislation are setting the stage to clamp down on the world wide web, technocrats are working overtime to try to pin down your identity and make sure all your activities are thoroughly monitored and under control.
VIDEO: Nigel Farage Explains Why Greece Needs a Floating Drachma Thursday, May 24, 2012 – by Staff Report President, we’re in the midst of an economic and increasingly humanitarian crisis and yet Commission president Barroso is not here. Indeed, Herman van Rompuy is not here either. Not that it really matters, because they’re not prepared to listen to any debate or any argument. They’re intent on pursuing their political dream of a United States of Europe. They’re prepared to commit economic suicide for an entire continent. – YouTube Dominant Social Theme: If Greece leaves, the world ends. Free-Market Analysis: Nigel Farage, MEP, Leader of the UK Independence Party regularly gives Eurocrats a dose of plain-speaking that they rarely gets elsewhere. This video shows us he is in fine form. In fact, most of what Farage – who is a hero at this point to anti-EU conservatives in Britain – has elaborated on in the past years has now come true. This doesn’t seem to have endeared him to his colleagues, though. This video, in addition to providing Farage at his best (how does he speak extemporaneously with such passion and vigor?) also provides us with a plain-spoken commentary as to why if Greece were to leave the EU, it should be WITHOUT a euro peg. In answer to a question at the end of his commentary, he makes the point that a devalued drachma would certainly raise the cost of imports for Greece but it would also encourage innovation. The lower the drachma went and the less it bought outside, the more people would attempt to create local alternatives. Inevitably, some of these alternatives might find a market OUTSIDE Greece. Thus it is that monetary competition fosters innovation. There is no substitute for it. In fact, it is good to see this sort of point being made, as it is a free-market assertion. The idea is that people are not potted plants and that they will not sit idly by while their livelihoods are destroyed. This gets to the nub of arguments currently being floated by pro-EU bureaucrats and officials. The argument is being made that Greece would be hit with a perfect storm of hyperinflation. But Farage’s answer to that is that people take what Austrian-economist Ludwig von Mises called “human action.” People will make their own way in the world, and are especially apt to do so if they are not barred from doing so by laws, potential imprisonment, monetary fines, etc. All things being equal, most people are able to survive with the help of family, friends and community. This is not the message being sent, of course. The pro-EU controlled mainstream media is in full cry over the horror of a Greek withdrawal from the EU – or at least from the euro. If Greece does it successfully, sure it will encourage others to do it, too. Yes, those within the EU are deadly afraid of a successful Greek exit. Iceland has effectively made such an exit in its own way and the result has been a virtual news blackout on that tiny country’s successes. Here’s hoping that Greeks get a chance to try to reclaim their national heritage – and a floating drachma. As Farage puts its, if the Greeks continue to stay in the EU with the euro they shall be “totally destroyed.” Here’s some more from his comments: Tomorrow night, Mr van Rompuy has called yet another summit at which he’s going to present a strategy for growth and jobs. Elected MEPs, representatives of the people of Europe from left and right - we’ve heard it all before - remember the euro itself was supposed to create growth and jobs and yet it is actively destroying both of those things. The remedy we’re being offered is more of the same. I would suggest that the medicine is killing the patient, and to increase the dosage is madness. And don’t listen to those who will tell you that the only alternative is for Greece to stay in the euro. Everyone’s pushing this. David Cameron, all the other leaders are saying, we must keep Greece in the euro, if she leaves the sky will fall in. It won’t! There’ll be a few difficult weeks and then things will settle down. There’ll be a boom in tourism, investment will start to come back into Greece, innovation will start to come back into Greece as people start making products to beat expensive imports. Indeed Greece outside of the eurozone may well provide to be an inspiration for Spain, for Portugal and many other countries. We need to recognise that a terrible mistake has been made. We must resolve to put it right. We’ve got to give people hope because out there now is absolute despair. Here’s the video. Farage is in fine form.
Below is one of the strangest stories in financial history, one involving the US government lying about hundreds of thousands of tons of imaginary gold, illegal wire transfers and loans totalling $15 trillion. The video, from the House of Lords, is amazing in itself. What it doesn’t express is where the money came from though Lord James of Blackheath proves conclusively that an effort was made to say it came from a gold reserve in Brunei that, in fact, never existed.
We’re making history here. Gold stocks have never been this undervalued before. We’ve had a 12 year bull market in gold, but we’ve also had a 15 year bear market in the mining shares that began with the Bre-X collapse.
It is important to remember that before this is over, the mining shares will be trading like internet stocks. Quality gold shares will be the Apple Computer’s of tomorrow.”
Beijing is planning to avoid U.S. financial sanctions on Iran by paying for oil with gold. China’s imports of the metal are already large, and you can guess what additional purchases are going to do to prices. On the last day of
In response to the question in the title, I can report that most of my readers are. Almost everyone got the point of the last column. They see the absurdity of the government’s claim that the identity of the tough, macho Navy Seals, who allegedly murdered Osama bin Laden, has to be kept secret in order to protect our fierce warriors from reprisals from Muslim terrorists, while those government officials responsible for the torture and deaths of large numbers of Muslims can walk around, identity known, unprotected and safe.

Richard Duncan (AE) offers a chapter from his new book The New Depression: The Breakdown Of The Paper Money Economy .. details the breakdown on Duncan’s policy recommendations .. "Capitalism was an economic system in which the private sector drove the economic process through saving, capital accumulation and investment. The government’s role was very limited. The United States has not had that kind of economic system for decades .. The central bank creates the money and manipulates its value. Almost all the major industries are subsidized in one way or another by the government and almost half of all households receive some kind of government assistance. Finally, the economic process itself is no longer driven by saving and investment. Instead, it is driven by borrowing and consumption. This is not Capitalism."
In a bombshell revelation of the depth of the food police state that now exists in LA County, California, NaturalNews has learned that the LA County health department has unleashed door-to-door raw milk confiscation teams to threaten and intimidate raw dairy customers into surrendering raw milk products they legally purchased and own.
