Botched Rad Waste Plant ???

The Energy Department has completed an exhaustive technical review of the plant designed to treat waste from the former Hanford nuclear weapons site and ordered the manager of the project to fix more than 500 problems that could compromise its future operation.

The government also told San Francisco-based Bechtel to comply with 10 major recommendations from the study, including some that would require design changes to the partially built plant in central Washington.

Two things are rather astonishing about this situation:

1. Over 20 years ago, Bechtel constructed a similar plant in South Carolina for radioactive waste produced at the Savannah River Site. Lessons learned from that project should have resulted in far fewer problems when the Hanford plant was designed and constructed.

2. There still is no place to store the radioactive waste logs produced at the Savannah River and Hanford facilities. The logs were supposed to go to Yucca Mountain for permanent storage, but that project has been stalled for years and may never be completed.

Nuclear waste storage in the US is serious joke, one which has consumed tons of money while producing little of value. And the waste is still there and still will be radioactive long after our species has died out.

And now some of the fossil fuel haters want us to build more nuclear power plants to save the planet from climate change. To do so before the radioactive waste disposal problem is fixed would be incredibly stupid.

Bombing Blacks In The US - Philadelphia And Tulsa

The only aerial bombing by police ever carried out on US soil was on May 13, 1985, when a Philadelphia police helicopter dropped military grade explosives on the house run by a group of self-styled revolutionaries known as Move. This group, which claims to adhere to principles of non-violence was founded by John Africa in 1972, and was composed mostly, but not exclusively, of African-Americans. They rejected the norms of 20th century American society in their dress, grooming, diet and lifestyles, and had come in conflict with authorities on several occasions.

The 1985 bombing claimed the lives of five children and six adults including founder John Africa. Another adult named Ramona Africa, and a child named Birdie Africa were the only survivors of the assault. More than 250 people in the predominantly black middle class neighborhood were left homeless after more than 60 other homes were destroyed as a result of the aerial bombing, and the fires that followed.

But that was NOT the first time Blacks in the US were bombed from the air. Here is an account of what happened during the Tulsa, OK race riot in 1921:

Numerous witness accounts described airplanes carrying white assailants, who fired rifles and dropped firebombs on buildings, homes, and fleeing families. The planes, six biplane two-seater trainers left over from World War I, were dispatched from the nearby Curtiss-Southwest Field outside Tulsa. Law enforcement officials later stated that the planes were to provide reconnaissance and protect against a "Negro uprising". Eyewitness accounts and testimony from the survivors maintained that on the morning of June 1, the planes dropped incendiary bombs and fired rifles at black residents on the ground.

Hyperloopy

Elon Musk is bringing together more than 1,000 college and high school students this weekend to showcase passenger-compartment designs for a hyperloop high-speed transit system.

Two Los Angeles start-ups are already developing hyperloops, starting with test track construction in the Central Valley and North Las Vegas later this year. Driven by a possible mix of electricity, magnetism and air pressure, levitating hyperloop pods would zip fast enough through above-ground tubes to reach San Francisco from Los Angeles in 30 minutes.

You may recall that I wrote about Musk's hyperloop before:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2013/08/the-musk-hyperloop-is-99-hype-and-1.html

I don't know which to admire more - Musk's enthusiasm, or his ability to mislead our children into supporting his schemes.

Assuming this thing actually works, here are some additional questions which need to be asked and answered:

1. Is there really a need for this, or will people somehow be forced to use it?

2. Will it be self-supporting, or will it need government subsidies to be constructed and operate?

3. How will people get to the hyperloop station, and once at their destination how will they get from the station to wherever they ultimately are going?

4. Where does the power for all this come from? Coal, oil and gas hydro, nuclear, solar?

5. How much will a ticket cost, and how does that compare to current transportation modalities?

Elon, I wish you well.

America, I hope he's not building you another Amtrak.

US Power Elite

"Our plutocracy, whether the hedge fund managers in Greenwich, Connecticut, or the Internet moguls in Palo Alto, now lives like the British did in colonial India: ruling the place but not of it. If one can afford private security, public safety is of no concern; to the person fortunate enough to own a Gulfstream jet, crumbling bridges cause less apprehension, and viable public transportation doesn’t even compute. With private doctors on call and a chartered plane to get to the Mayo Clinic, why worry about Medicare?"

Hillary Will Indeed Support TPP

In an interview from Davos with Bloomberg TV on January 20, Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue - a top lobbyist for the pro-corporate-power Trans-Pacific Partnership [TPP] agreement - assured viewers that if Hillary Clinton wins the presidential election, Clinton will support the TPP, even though she opposes it now.

Reporting on the interview, Inside U.S. Trade noted:

The Chamber president said he expected Hillary Clinton would ultimately support the TPP if she becomes the Democratic nominee for president and is elected. He argued that she has publicly opposed the deal chiefly because her main challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), has also done so. "If she were to get nominated, if she were to be elected, I have a hunch that what runs in the family is you get a little practical if you ever get the job," he said.

Here is what I think about the leading candidates:

1. Hillary is similar to Obama ad-Dajjal. Both promise things they never intend to deliver.

2. Sanders genuinely intends to do a lot of things, but the deep state will oppose him on all fronts.

3. Trump also genuinely intends to do the things he promises, but the entire establishment will fight him tooth and nail.

So, if you want a friend of We The People, go with Sanders or Trump.

But if you are an oligarch, bankgangster, corporate CEO, or one of their collaborators in the one percent, Hillary is your man. After all, you've already bought and paid for her, haven't you?

Murder By FBI ???

You can watch him being killed here:


Don't ever expect an FBI agent to be indicted for shooting anyone. In fact, they have a perfect record of "justified" kills since at least 1993. You can read about it here:

The Clintons ARE Wall Street

I owe almost my entire Wall Street career to the Clintons. I am not alone; most bankers owe their careers, and their wealth, to them. Over the last 25 years they – with the Clintons it is never just Bill or Hillary – implemented policies that placed Wall Street at the center of the Democratic economic agenda, turning it from a party against Wall Street to a party of Wall Street.

That is why when I recently went to see Hillary Clinton campaign for president and speak about reforming Wall Street I was skeptical. What I heard hasn’t changed that skepticism. The policies she offers are mid-course corrections. In the Clintons’ world, Wall Street stays at the center, economically and politically. Given Wall Street’s power and influence, that is a dangerous place to leave them.

New Zealand Targets Those Who Oppose TPP

The government of New Zealand has taken a hardline approach that is clearly an intimidation tactic against those who oppose the TPP by calling them radicals and a threat to national security, while ordering police to visit anti-TPP activists at their homes to interrogate them regarding protests later this week, the New Zealand Herald reported Thursday.

“Police are checking in on ‘known activists’ around the country ahead of TPP protests later this week,” the daily said.

Scout Barbour-Evans, an anti-TPP activist from Dunedin, New Zealand, told the newspaper that police knocked on their door at 10 a.m. Thursday.

​As the New Zealand Herald explained, Barbour-Evans is transgender and goes by the gender-neutral pronoun “they.”

They said the police were inquiring into what plans protesters had in regards to their anti-Trans-Pacific Partnership action in Dunedin.

Make no mistake - the "war on terror" may have started as an attack on radical Islam, but it has morphed into an attack on ANYONE who opposes the global empire being built by the folks who meet at Davos (and their ilk).

And anyone in the "five eyes" (US, UK, Canada, Australia, and NZ) is susceptible to being spied upon by the most intrusive police states in the world (i.e., their own governments).

Corporate rule is NOT democracy. Not by a long shot.

Did GM Mosquitoes Cause Zika Outbreak ???

Oxitec first unveiled its large-scale, genetically-modified mosquito farm in Brazil in July 2012, with the goal of reducing “the incidence of dengue fever,” as The Disease Daily reported. Dengue fever is spread by the same Aedes mosquitoes which spread the Zika virus — and though they “cannot fly more than 400 meters,” WHO stated, “it may inadvertently be transported by humans from one place to another.” By July 2015, shortly after the GM mosquitoes were first released into the wild in Juazeiro, Brazil, Oxitec proudly announced they had “successfully controlled the Aedes aegypti mosquito that spreads dengue fever, chikungunya and zika virus, by reducing the target population by more than 90%.”

Though that might sound like an astounding success — and, arguably, it was — there is an alarming possibility to consider.

Nature, as one Redditor keenly pointed out, finds a way — and the effort to control dengue, zika, and other viruses, appears to have backfired dramatically.

The particular strain of Oxitec GM mosquitoes, OX513A, are genetically altered so the vast majority of their offspring will die before they mature — though Dr. Ricarda Steinbrecher published concerns in a report in September 2010 that a known survival rate of 3-4 percent warranted further study before the release of the GM insects. Her concerns, which were echoed by several other scientists both at the time and since, appear to have been ignored — though they should not have been.

The Prince Of Darkness

In the preface to his 2004 memoir, Center of the Storm, former CIA Director George Tenet describes an odd experience that occurred upon his arrival at the White House very early on the morning of September 12, 2001. It was the day after the worst terrorist attack in US history. Smoke was still rising from the Pentagon across the Potomac, and dust was still swirling over the ruins of the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan, a scene of total devastation.

No surprise that security was extremely tight at the White House. Former CIA Director Tenet says he passed through a cordon of secret service agents brandishing weapons; and fighters were visible high above patrolling the skies over Washington. As Tenet strolled under the portico that leads to the West Wing, he was surprised to encounter “one of the godfathers of the neoconservative movement,” Richard Perle, then exiting the White House, a man whose reputation preceded him.

Tenet writes that “as the doors closed behind him we made eye contact and nodded. I had just reached the door myself when Perle turned to me and said ‘Iraq has to pay a price for what happened, yesterday. They bear responsibility.’”

Tenet says he was “stunned,” as well he should have been. What was Perle talking about? And what was he doing at the White House, anyway, especially on this day? True, the man was head of the Defense Policy Board, a civilian advisory group, but the job conferred no official status. It was not a government post. Perle was not a US official, nor a member of the Bush administration. Yet, in this unprecedented moment of national trauma and sorrow, Perle had access to the White House. How come? Tenet had no answer.

Libya - The Sequel

But the much bigger question was when (not if, but when) the instability and extremism that predictably followed the NATO bombing [of Libya] would be used to justify a new U.S.-led war — also exactly as happened in Iraq. Back in 2012, I asked the question this way:

How much longer will it be before we hear that military intervention in Libya is (again) necessary, this time to control the anti-US extremists who are now armed and empowered by virtue of the first intervention? U.S. military interventions are most adept at ensuring that future U.S. military interventions will always be necessary.

We now have our answer, from The New York Times:

Worried about a growing threat from the Islamic State in Libya, the United States and its allies are increasing reconnaissance flights and intelligence collecting there and preparing for possible airstrikes and commando raids, senior American policy makers, commanders and intelligence officials said this week. … “It’s fair to say that we’re looking to take decisive military action against ISIL in conjunction with the political process” in Libya, [Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Joseph] Dunford said. “The president has made clear that we have the authority to use military force.”

It seems fairly clear that the US intends to smash several nations under the pretext of fighting "the Islamic State". None of this was (or is) necessary. These countries could have been our partners. They will be our vassals instead, or perhaps be nothing at all.

Thank you, Hillary. Thank you, Obama ad-Dajjal.

The War On US Workers

IT workers are challenging the replacement of U.S. employees with foreign visa holders. Lawsuits are on the rise and workers are contacting lawmakers. Disney workers who lost their jobs on Jan. 30, 2015, are especially aggressive.

There's a reason for this.

The Disney severance package offered to them did not include a non-disparagement clause, making it easier for laid-off workers to speak out. This is in contrast to the severance offered to Northeast Utility workers.

The utility, now known as Eversource Energy and based in Connecticut and Massachusetts, laid off approximately 200 IT employees in 2014 after contracting with two India-based offshore outsourcing firms. The employees contacted local media and lawmakers to pressure the utility to abandon its outsourcing plan.

This has been going on for some time. I personally witnessed a mass replacement of IT workers by Illinois Power when I worked for them in 1999.

It is often claimed that hiring foreign workers is necessary due to a lack of pertinent skills in the US work force. This claim is a falsehood:

Contrary to [some] assertions, there are more than 11 million Americans with degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) who lack employment in these fields, and U.S. schools are graduating two times more students with STEM degrees than are annually finding employment in these fields.

More MSM Mendacity Towards Trump ???

Two days ago, the US mainstream media (MSM) reported that Wounded Warrior Project allegedly is squandering the money they raised, spending lavishly on themselves instead of helping veterans. You can read some of the accusations here:

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/28/us/wounded-warrior-project-spends-lavishly-on-itself-ex-employees-say.html

Last night during the Donald Trump veterans event broadcast on CNN, the camera view I saw showed a man wearing a highly visible Wounded Warrior Project logo. It was the only such logo I noticed during the part of the broadcast I watched.

Q: Did CNN arrange to have that logo visible in the hope the bad publicity the charity had just received would rub off on Trump?

Q: Is it coincidence the Wounded Warrior Project investigation was first broadcast right after Trump announced he would not attend the latest Republican debate, but would instead host an event for veterans?

Q: Is this yet another example of the MSM interfering with the US political process?

The powers that be (TPTB) want the US to have open borders. The additional people they allow access to our economy are destabilizing the US nation state. Eventually our nation will be destroyed, we all will be serfs, and TPTB will own and/or control everything which used to be ours.

Is Facebook Imposing A Global Morality ???

According to this report, some have accused Facebook of imposing their morality on the global commons (e.g., the Internet):

For Facebook and other platforms like it, incidents such as the bullfighting kerfuffle betray a larger, existential difficulty: How can you possibly impose a single moral framework on a vast and varying patchwork of global communities?

If you ask Facebook this question, the social-media behemoth will deny doing any such thing. Facebook says its community standards are inert, universal, agnostic to place and time. The site doesn’t advance any worldview, it claims, besides the non-controversial opinion that people should “connect” online.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-intersect/wp/2016/01/28/the-big-myth-facebook-needs-everyone-to-believe/

You can believe Facebook's claims, or you can make your own decision about what is happening. I suggest you consult an expert such as George Orwell before making up your mind:

Orwell said that language makes humans easy to control - control their language and you control the people. A simple example of that notion was brought home to me one day when I was talking to a young Chinese woman who told me that her dialect had no word that matched the English word for privacy. Privacy was a concept her parents didn’t understand. So there was no such thing as privacy in her parents' house. After living in America for a number of years, it drove this young woman crazy to go back to China and not have the privacy she had gotten used to. There was no lock on her bedroom door. When she put a table in front of the door so she could be alone, her mother came unglued and accused her of being an unloving daughter. America had ruined her.

Whether or not Facebook intends to control global language, thought, and/or morality, their unique position in the social media universe makes some such influence inevitable. And since apparently no one controls Facebook except its owners and executives, the responsibility for what happens is theirs.

The End Of Work ???

The Japanese lettuce production company Spread believes the farmers of the future will be robots.

So much so that Spread is creating the world's first farm manned entirely by robots. Instead of relying on human farmers, the indoor Vegetable Factory will employ robots that can harvest 30,000 heads of lettuce every day.

Don't expect a bunch of humanoid robots to roam the halls, however; the robots look more like conveyor belts with arms. They'll plant seeds, water plants, and trim lettuce heads after harvest in the Kyoto, Japan farm. 

"The use of machines and technology has been improving agriculture in this way throughout human history," J.J. Price, a spokesperson at Spread, tells Tech Insider. "With the introduction of plant factories and their controlled environment, we are now able to provide the ideal environment for the crops."

Here Comes Zika

The Zika virus, blamed for thousands of deformities in babies in what is a growing crisis across Latin America, could see “explosive” growth and affect up to 4 million people globally, experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) said Thursday. 

Margaret Chan, director-general of the U.N.’s health agency, said the organization will hold an emergency meeting on Monday to decide if Zika should be declared an international emergency. She added that the spread of the mosquito-borne disease had gone from a mild threat to one of alarming proportions.

Marcos Espinal, an infectious disease expert at the WHO's Americas regional office, said: "We can expect 3 to 4 million cases of Zika virus disease." He gave no time frame.

FBI Ready To Lower The Boom On Hillary

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been under investigation by the FBI for several months, and former U.S. House Majority leader Tom DeLay said Monday that the FBI is “ready to indict” her for using a private email server to conduct government business.

During an interview on “The Steve Malzberg Show,” DeLay, a Republican from Texas, said he has friends in the FBI who tell him “they’re ready to indict” the former Secretary of State.

“They’re ready to recommend an indictment and they also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they’re going public,” DeLay said.

Press Jailed In Turkey

Turkish prosecutors on Wednesday sought multiple life sentences for two top opposition journalists on charges of revealing state secrets in a report that alleged President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government tried to send arms into Syria.

Prosecutors asked the Istanbul court to sentence Cumhuriyet newspaper editor-in-chief Can Dundar and Ankara bureau chief Erdem Gul each to a penalty comprising one aggravated life sentence, one ordinary life sentence and 30 years in jail, the Dogan news agency reported.

The severity of the demand intensified concerns about press freedom in Turkey, with EU Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn saying he was "shocked".

Three More Reasons Not To Vote For Hillary

A second Clinton administration could mean a future Justice Barack Obama.

At a campaign event in Deocorah, Iowa on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton lit up when a voter asked her if she would consider appointing the president to the Supreme Court should she win the White House.

"Wow, what a great idea. No one has ever suggested that to me, I love that, wow," the Democratic presidential candidate responded. "He may have a few other things to do but I tell you that's a great idea."

Clinton went on to talk about how the next president could have to appoint up to three Supreme Court justices, but she then circled back.

"I would certainly take that under advisement," she told the crowd of 450 people inside a ballroom at the Winn Hotel about a potential Justice Obama. "I mean he’s brilliant, and he can set forth an argument, and he was a law professor, so he’s got all the credentials."

Obama ad-Dajjal may seem to have "all the credentials", but his interpretations of the US Constitution and federal law are bizarre in the extreme. Put three more nut jobs like him on SCOTUS, and the whole US judicial system may fall apart.

But that may be exactly what Hillary has in mind.

A Question For Birthers

The following retrospective article recently appeared in The New York Times:

The Harvard Law Review, generally considered the most prestigious in the country, elected the first black president in its 104-year history today. The job is considered the highest student position at Harvard Law School.

The new president of the Review is Barack Obama, a 28-year-old graduate of Columbia University who spent four years heading a community development program for poor blacks on Chicago's South Side before enrolling in law school. His late father, Barack Obama, was a finance minister in Kenya and his mother, Ann Dunham, is an American anthropologist now doing fieldwork in Indonesia. Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii.

Question for birthers: Why do you think the sentence "Mr. Obama was born in Hawaii" appears in the article?

Second question: Does anyone have a copy of the original NYT article? Does that sentence appear in it, or was it added in hindsight?

When I have the time, I'm going to find this on microfiche at some library and confirm my suspicions.

By the way, it is worth noting that the article implies that Barack was chosen for the position not because he had the highest grades (which he apparently did not), but because he was perceived to be a black man.

The Party Is Over

Our team has chosen to place 2016 under the sign of a “general strategic retreat”, affecting all levels of social organization, starting of course with the national levels, but not only.

This retreat (or fallback) will not yet represent in 2016 the end of the global mobility, of the international exchanges or of the internet, and the world will still be a global village this year. Nevertheless, we will see walls getting built, regulations being imposed, flows getting controlled, armies strengthened, markets fragmented … all this not on an international basis, since the failure of the global governance reform is striking, but on the basis of the only available political entities on the market: nation states, religious and ethnic groups, certain supra-national organizations and the local level.

It is the end of the great global orgy; everyone goes home … with a severe hangover.

Israel Accuses Turkey Of Supporting ISIS

Israel's defense minister said on Tuesday that Islamic State militants had been funded with "Turkish money", an assertion that could hinder attempts to mend fences between the two countries after years of estrangement.

"It's up to Turkey, the Turkish government, the Turkish leadership, to decide whether they want to be part of any kind of cooperation to fight terrorism. This is not the case so far," Moshe Yaalon told reporters in Athens.

"As you know, Daesh (Islamic State) enjoyed Turkish money for oil for a very, very long period of time. I hope that it will be ended," Yaalon, a right-wing former armed forces chief, told reporters after meeting his Greek counterpart, Panos Kammenos.

Is this another example of the fallout from US diplomacy?

1. To get Turkey's support, we allow them to kill Kurds and fund ISIS?

2. To get Saudi Arabia's support, we allow them to destroy Yemen?

3. To procure weapons for our terrorists in Syria, we destroy Libya, murder its leader, and allow our own ambassador to be killed?

The "diplomats" responsible for such things should be fired. The military persons who participated in them should be publicly shamed.

Sliding Into Satan's Pit

Not long ago, Satanists erected a statue of their god in Detroit:


Now Hollywood seems to be following suit with these new, demonic TV series:

2. "You, Me and the Apocalypse" - https://youtu.be/SlMJtes4aV4 (trailer)

As if US television wasn't already a cesspool of moral depravity.

We participate in such "entertainment" at our peril.

I believe there will be a day of judgement. And cozying up to Satan, mocking the Bible, and insulting G-d are not the ways to prepare for it.

Losing Our Remaining Tax Base

In the fall of 2008, with General Motors and Chrysler on the precipice of bankruptcy, executives at the car parts supplier Johnson Controls flew to Washington. The company’s president testified before a Senate panel and implored lawmakers to bail out the auto industry.

“Speaking for our company, and, I am sure for all auto parts suppliers, we respectfully urge the members of this committee, and the Congress as a whole, to provide the financial support the automakers need at this critical time,” Keith Wandell, then the president of Johnson Controls, said, warning that the failure of even one automobile company would “implode” the supply chain and lead to broad job losses.

Congress approved a bailout plan worth almost $80 billion for General Motors and Chrysler, saving the automakers and, indirectly, suppliers like Johnson Controls. By 2010, with its business back on track, Johnson Controls doubled the pay of Stephen Roell, then its chief executive, to more than $15 million.

Despite the federal government’s rescue — and hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks over the last several decades from states like Michigan and Wisconsin — Johnson Controls said on Monday it was renouncing its United States corporate citizenship by selling itself to Tyco International, based in Ireland, a deal struck in large part to reduce its tax bill, which it said should drop by about $150 million annually.

Monday’s announcement by Johnson Controls is just the latest effort by corporate America to flee the United States. In the last year, Pfizer said it was leaving for Ireland, as did Medtronic, the medical device maker. Coca-Cola’s largest bottling company, after selling its domestic operations, is heading to Britain. (The company, Coca-Cola Enterprises, insists it isn’t for tax reasons.)

The federal government spends in excess of one trillion dollars each year above and beyond what it collects in taxes. And yet it stands idly by as corporation after corporation leaves the US, taking its jobs and tax payments with it. This is an unsustainable situation, but obviously no one in charge gives a damn.

Our fall will be spectacular ... and extremely painful.

Why I Will Never Support Bloomberg

Mayor Bloomberg acted in a truly bizarre manner following the 9/11 attacks:

New York authorities' decision to ship the twin towers' scrap to recyclers has raised the anger of victims' families and some engineers who believe the massive girders should be further examined to help determine how the towers collapsed.

But New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg insisted there are better ways to study the tragedy of September 11.

"If you want to take a look at the construction methods and the design, that's in this day and age what computers do," said Bloomberg, a former engineering major. "Just looking at a piece of metal generally doesn't tell you anything."

His statement appears to indicate several possibilities:

1. Maybe he slept through his mechanical engineering courses.

2. Maybe he's an idiot.

3. Or maybe he was an accomplice after the fact, in that he authorized (or did not prevent when he should have) the destruction of WTC evidence.

I think both he and Mayor Giuliani knew exactly what was going on but chose to keep their mouths shut for personal reasons (possibly including cowardice).

Whatever the case, I will NEVER support this man. And I don't think you should, either.

Get Ready For A Global Currency

In 1950 James Paul Warburg, whose family co-founded the Federal Reserve System, made the following claim while speaking before the US Senate:

“We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”

It appears that we may be closer to this goal than many people think. Here is one author's recent assessment:

In the fall of 2015, the world descended into an economic apocalypse that will transform the globe into a single cashless society. This bold prediction is based on trends in nations all over the earth as shown in the article below.

As we enter 2016, we are only beginning to see this Epocalypse form through the fog of war. The war I’m talking about is the world war waged furiously by central banks against the Great Recession as the governments they supposedly serve fiddled while their capital burned.

The governments and banks of this world advanced rapidly toward forming cashless societies throughout 2015. The citizens of some countries are already embracing the move. In other countries, like the US, citizens fear the loss of autonomy that would come from giving governments and their designated central banks absolute monetary control.

NAFTA, WTO, TPP, TTIP, TISA, and the move to abolish cash all take us in the direction of global government. But it will NOT be a government of, by, and for We The People. It will be a market state (or federation of market states) ruled by oligarchs, bankgangsters, and corporate CEOs.

Note well that Obama ad-Dajjal and Hillary are the willing puppets of the persons (both the living and the undead) who are working feverishly to bring this about. A Trump presidency, even if it happens, will be a mere speed bump on the road we are hurtling down.

Fast And Furious - The Legacy Of Eric Holder

Since 2011, the Justice Department has refused repeated requests from Congress and the news media to fully disclose details of incidents involving guns that had been illegally trafficked to Mexican drug cartels under the watch of U.S. agents in Operation Fast and Furious. The partial list below was compiled using available information.

You can find the list @
https://sharylattkisson.com/20-examples-of-the-violent-legacy-of-fast-and-furious/

This was one of the dumbest things which happened during the Obama administration.

What was AG Eric Holder's punishment? No indictment, no shame, and he is now a highly paid executive in private industry.

The Ultimate Truth Bomb

I ask you this, what would the world look like the day following a “truth bomb” dropped by Mr. Putin and the Chinese.  Would Americans even notice if he documented several false flags or frauds embedded in U.S. finance such as outright monetization of U.S Treasuries?  No, most certainly not.  Americans would however notice if financial markets collapsed or were shut down.  Russia and China know full well the situation in the West.  It is a bankruptcy waiting to happen as everything is fractional reserve and running on maximum margin while the underlying system is shrinking and no longer supplying enough liquidity.  The way I see it, the stage is truly set for a financial attack on anything and everything American.  Is it implausible for the Saudis to announce they will sell oil in yuan to China?  Or Iran to withdraw their funds from U.S. institutions and then bid for gold with these funds?  If the East does in fact have jamming or hacking capability of Western technology, is it far fetched for them to show it very publicly in one or several situations?  How would the “bookies” react if they saw a prize fighter enter one of the later rounds with his hands tied behind his back?

Did Teddy Roosevelt Kill McKinley ???

The man who allegedly shot Teddy Roosevelt in 1912 made the following statement:

“To the people of the United States: In a dream I saw President McKinley sit up in his coffin pointing at a man in a monk’s attire in whom I recognized Theodore Roosevelt. The dead president said - ‘This is my murderer’ - avenge my death.”

There were indeed some Taft supporters who believed that the murder of McKinley in 1901, also carried out by a deranged “Red”, was part of a plot to install TR as President.

I also have wondered about this. McKinley's death was certainly very convenient for Roosevelt's ambitions.

But we'll never know. For some reason, all US assassins turn out (at least in the official stories) to have been "lone wolves".

Rabbi Wants All Palestinians Killed

A senior Israeli rabbi says Tel Aviv should execute Palestinians instead of arresting them and “leave no one alive” in order to establish safety in the occupied Palestinian territories, Palestinian media report.

“Israeli army has to stop arresting Palestinians,” Shmuel Eliyahu said in a message posted on his Facebook page on Tuesday, adding, “but, it must execute them and leave no one alive,” Palestine News Network reported.

As chief rabbi of the city of Safed, Eliyahu is known for his racist behavior and remarks about Arabs and Muslims. He had earlier urged the Israeli regime to take “revenge” against Arabs in order to restore what he called Israel’s deterrence.

The Beast Flexes His Muscles

Most of you probably are familiar with this Biblical passage:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:16-17 KJV

Here is a contemporary example of what it means:

On January 22, 2015 Memory Hole Blog received an email from “PayPal Brand Risk Management,” stating  that it is closing MHB’s account used to receive donations. Memory Hole has had a relationship with PayPal for two years. Suddenly, however, the company has chosen to unilaterally discontinue MHB’s account services.

If you recall, Dr. Tracy was fired from his tenured professor position due to circumstances related to his questioning of the validity of the official story of the Sandy Hook event in 2012. Since he still refuses to take the mark, the punishments have escalated.

Yes, unquestioning belief in the secular government of the United States has become a religion. In fact, it's becoming the only religion (other than Judaism) which is tolerated in the US.

Obama Hates We The People

TTIP negotiations continue in the shadows in both America and the EU and they enter a new and dangerous stage as existing legal barriers that would inhibit certain types of (harmful) trade are dismantled in favour of a new set of rules termed ‘regulatory cooperation’. It sounds collaborative, it is, but just not in the public interest.

What this really means is that decades of regulations passed by governments, legislated upon for public interest and safety reasons are being swept aside. These new regulations that the public and journalists are barred from being a party to include the demolition of environmental protections, safety at work regulations, food safety and other laws designed to protect and defend public safety.

Any new regulations that EU states would want to impose in future are now facing considerable barriers and hurdles that could take years to negotiate and the system is clearly being designed to be onerous and just plain difficult to favour corporate interests above public interest.

Corporate Observatory, whose raison d’ĂȘtre is exposing the power of corporate lobbying in the EU has recently published its latest report “Dangerous Regulatory Duet” which exposes how a new framework being implemented under regulatory cooperation through TTIP will allow bureaucrats and big business to attack the public interest.

A large part of the legacy of Obama ad-Dajjal (who wants TPP, TTIP, TISA, and similar deals passed before he leaves office) will be the destruction of the US nation state. He destroyed our Constitution, and now he wants to make us slaves to the oligarchs, bankgangsters, and corporations.

His is the greatest betrayal since Benedict Arnold's treason.

US Will Lose 448,000 Jobs From TPP

A new analysis of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) international trade deal has found claims of increased jobs are likely exaggerated..."TPP would lead to employment losses in all countries, with a total of 771,000 lost jobs. The United States would be the hardest hit, with a loss of 448,000 jobs."

I don't think this bodes well for the so-called militia. If they wanted a fight, it sure looks like they soon will get one.

Giving Obama Unlimited War Powers ???

The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent. Even when weapons of war are not actually destroyed, their manufacture is still a convenient way of expending labour power without producing anything that can be consumed.
George Orwell, from Nineteen Eighty-Four

Along those lines, consider this disturbing news:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is moving to fast track an Authorization of Military Force (AUMF) for the President that would allow for unrestricted warfare against ISIS. There would be no time or geographic restrictions on this authorization. Rather than being a favor to President Obama, this is primarily a means to ensure that whoever takes control in 2017 receives a blank check for unrestrained militarism with no expiration date. This is terrifying.

If we continue to squander our wealth in this manner, we are finished as a nation. I think The Founders knew this, but our generation seems to have forgotten it.

Do We The People want continual war? I don't. Do you?
