Karen Hudes – ‘The Banking Cartel’s Domination Was Based On Secrecy And They’ve Lost It’
Friday 22 May 2015

"Dollars" are not dollars, they are (the private bank) Federal Reserve notes.
Pay attention to what Karen says about gold. Because of compound interest that has been used for centuries to screw us, the banksters screwed themselves. They owe us. Legally. There is no national debt, it is toxic and more than that it is an illusion maintained by actor politicians like Cameron and controlled media.

TRILLIONS STOLEN!! Get It Back!! Rally At Central Banks Worldwide, June 20 #WaveOfAction
May 22, 2015
We’ve had enough of the electoral charade and endless divide and conquer propaganda. Democrats vs Republicans, conservatives vs liberals, it is all a bullshit distraction and anyone who understands economics and how real power operates knows it. Elections are a spectacle for the mentally enslaved. Our “democracy” is an illusion for propagandized minds. We have an aristocratic class of global bankers who run this planet, and it is time for all aware people to step up and do something about it.
When you understand how much wealth there is, $100 trillion in the US alone, you realize that we are witnessing deliberate systemic economic genocide. The unnecessary suffering of the masses must stop. In a time of unprecedented abundance, we are not going to passively sit back while our families are buried in debt and struggle to afford basic necessities.Our economic system is a crime against humanity!
Economic policy makes it clear that the majority of the population has been sentenced to an impoverished future. The shortsighted greed of global bankers has put us on a fast track to societal chaos and rioting. They have thrown 75% of the population overboard. That is a mathematical fact!
If we want to change things through non-violent methods, the window of opportunity is closing fast. If love and compassion are going to prevail, now is the time to STAND UP.
As all aware people already know, we are at a critical crossroad. Are we going to let our society collapse, or will a critical mass of compassionate citizens courageously stand up and guide us toward a sustainable and prosperous future?
We need bold and courageous action now.
We can use this time of crisis to drastically change course and evolve society in an extremely positive direction. We live in a technologically advanced society that has all the necessary tools to usher in a new age of enlightenment. The only thing that stands between us and unprecedented global prosperity is the shortsighted greed of global bankers.
On June 20th, we will rally at US Federal Reserve banks, the Bank of England and central banks worldwide to focus mass consciousness on the crimes against humanity perpetrated by global bankers.

If you are tired of toiling in debt and fear, join us in this Worldwide #WaveOfAction here!

Special Ops Officer Blows Whistle on CIA Funded ISIS Through Swiss Bank Accounts
Submitted by IWB, on May 5th, 2015
by Dave Hodges
Have you ever wondered why President Obama is so willing to chase ISIS into Syria and risk war with Russia, but he allows an ISIS base camp to remain intact only 8 miles from El Paso?
Both this article and the subsequent interview will answer the aforementioned question while demonstrating how the U.S. is funding the very enemy we are supposed to be trying to destroy. All is revealed in this “tell-all” in one of the most important interviews ever conducted on The Common Sense Show.
Summary of the Interview
During the course of the interview, we spoke extensively on how 9/11 was most likely a CIA/Mossad operation and key written records were destroyed in two locations both at Building 7 and at the Pentagon. Had the financial records from either site ever been made public, this government would have been brought to its knees because of the massive financial corruption that would have been revealed.
We also spoke of Russian-American relations and the tragedy and needless rise of the new Cold War. Bennett stated our corporate greed and American hegemony has placed us in a position where we are now isolated from our allies and Europe is in the process of turning their collective backs on the United States in which Germany, for example, is likely to leave NATO and align with Russia.
Bennett has written extensively on the intelligence community’s surveillance activities addressed by Edward Snowden’s National Security Agency-Central Intelligence Agencymaterials; and since 2010, Bennett has filed numerous military-government whistle-blowing reports with Congressional Committees, including: the Intelligence, the Armed Services, the Government Oversight and Reform, the Homeland Security, the Judiciary, the Foreign Affairs, the Banking, and the Terrorism Committees. He has communicated with over a hundred Federal representatives, Senators, senior military officers and Pentagon officials, and journalists about the scandalous abuses of power and deception being employed against the American people by its own military-intelligence community; and the most damning report brought into the public sector occurred when he filed legal action against Booz Allen Hamilton and the Department of Defense for their involvement in secret Swiss Bank Terrorist Finance Operations, in which he uncovered with the help of Union Bank of Switzerland whistleblower, Brad Birkenfeld a massive terrorist funding program.
We know that ISIS got its “beginnings” from U.S. military equipment deliberately left behind in Iraq. Bennett and I both agree that to leave unsecured weapons on a former battlefield was undoubtedly an intentional act because of the strict military protocols against such a practice. Again, he views ISIS, which is a hybrid terrorist organization, as the artificial creation of the CIA and the Mossad in a joint operation. Ultimately, chasing ISIS into Syria will result in Russian intervention and World War III. But first, we have to contend with ISIS on our doorstep, only 8 miles from El Paso. This is the quintessential false flag cover in which they hope to convince most of America to accept martial law out of ignorance to the role that the CIA and its allies will have played in the event. This parallels the letter I received from the Texas Ranger on the same topic in which he claimed that the Rangers are bracing for an attack by ISIS against targets in Texas.

Pento Warns of Epic Bubble, Says Collapse to Make 2008 a “Walk in the Park”
Submitted by IWB, on May 22nd, 2015
by moneymetals
Cashless Society Coming; DOJ Goes after Private Sector Manipulators (Only)

Looking for any excuse to revise higher, the first quarter even though the first quarter has been higher than Q2 40% of the time in the last 10 years, but that’s prima facie evidence that they should undergo some dramatic change to the formula that the Bureau of Economics Analysis conducts. The danger here is I think we are going to get more and more government data that’s manipulated right from the onset of its release.
Mike Gleason: Ultimately what do you think the market reaction will be to all of this, because it seems like it will have to unwind at some point, right?
Michael Pento: We are in an epic bubble, if you look at the Q ratio which is really the total Market Cap divided by the replacement cost or book value of companies, it’s vastly at all-time high outside of 1999 or early 2000. You’re looking at total Market Cap as a percentage of GDP the same story, we are 127% where the median is at 88%. If you look at the median P/E ratio on the S&P 500 is higher than 99% of all other occasions, so we’re a monstrous bubble in equities and this is not only in the United States but extends especially to China and Japan. Of course in Europe we have negative real interest rates, and sovereign debt across the globe, we have negative nominal rates in even Portugal, of all places. The Portuguese had a six month T-BILL trading at 11% in 2011, which was actually the vote on the part of the bond market that Portuguese people, the tax bace, was incapable of servicing Portuguese debt. So interest rates spiked to 11% for a very short term debt not because Mario Draghi came in, and uttered the words “whatever it takes”, and, guess what, yields in nominal terms are negative. So you’re looking at a massive bubble in stocks, a massive bubble in real estate, a re-ignited bubble there, but also unprecedented global international bubble in sovereign debt, and when that pops is going to make 2008 look like a walk in the park.
Mike Gleason: What does this mean for gold? One would think it would generate more demand for it, no?
Michael Pento: They just had a report yesterday that, I think it was six banks across the planet were fined billions of dollars for manipulating LIBOR, the London intra-bank offered rate, for manipulating currencies, for manipulating S&P mini futures, for manipulating everything. And that included commodities, so gold is a very highly manipulated commodity, because it reveals the fact that governments are insolvent and the currencies are worthless, so there is a vested interest on from governments and financial markets to keep this metal down. If you’re moving towards a cashless society, and I know you wanted to get to that later, but if you move to a cashless society, I think you’ll have such an overwhelming demand for gold, from the private economy, that it would overwhelm and supersede any type of manipulation from banks and governments.
Mike Gleason: Has the lack of safe haven buying of gold to this point surprised you a little bit Michael?
Michael Pento: Yes as a matter of fact it has, I’m so surprised by so many things Mike. If you told me that the debt of the world would explode by $60 trillion since December of 2007, if you told me that nominal interest rates was going to be pushed to zero by central bankers across the globe, I have to add also, if I told you that every central bank on the planet has adopted inflation targets, I would have told you that gold would be $2,000, $3,000 or $4,000 an ounce. But, because it’s manipulated it’s been artificially suppressed down here for much longer than I would have believed, but I guess that’s good news because people who want to buy it can buy it much more cheaply. But that won’t last for long in my opinion, especially as the confidence in the central bankers finally erodes and withers away to zero.

‘We are in fact losing this war': Senate hears case for new Iraq surge
Submitted by WorkerAnt#11, on May 22nd, 2015
Stars and Stripes: Architects of the 2006 surge in Iraq told the Senate Thursday that the current U.S. war strategy is “fundamentally flawed” and a major increase in troops and operations is needed to halt the growing momentum of the Islamic State.
In the wake of the fall of Ramadi, the United States should deploy up to 20,000 troops for nightly special operations raids and expanded assistance to Iraqi and Kurdish forces on the ground, conservative defense experts who once counseled former President George W. Bush told the Senate Armed Services Committee.
The testimony is part of a Republican push in the Senate for a more robust strategy following last weekend’s loss of Ramadi, capital of Anbar province andone of the bloodiest battlefields for U.S. troops in the 2003-2011 war.

Obama’s fail on Saudi-Qatari aid to al-Qaeda affiliate
23 May 2015
News media coverage of the Camp David summit between President Barack Obama and Gulf Cooperation Council members has focused largely on Obama’s success in getting the GCC States to go along with the negotiation of a nuclear agreement with Iran.
But the much more consequential story of the summit is Obama’s decision not to confront Saudi Arabia and Qatar about their financing of an al-Qaeda offshoot in Syria that has made the most dramatic gains in the jihadist war against the Assad regime.
For months the conflict between the policies of the Obama administration and those of Saudi Arabia and Qatar toward the war in Syria has been sharpening.
The US policy has been to arm and train several thousand rebels to fight only against Islamic State forces, whereas the Saudis and Qataris have embarked on a new initiative with Turkey to beef up the capability of Jabhat al Nusra (the Nusra Front), the official al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, and its jihadist allies by creating a new military coalition in Idlib province to capture territory from the Assad regime.
A source in the Saudi royal family involved in defence and security matters confirmed for this article the existence of the new military coalition and the Saudi and Qatari assistance to it. The source said that the Army of Conquest is a temporary coalition in the Idlib region in which Jabhat al Nusra and Ahrar al Sham represent 90 percent of the troops. The Saudis and Qataris provide funding for 40 percent of the coalition’s requirements, according to the source, whereas the coalition itself provides 60 percent of its own needs – mainly from capture.
Ahrar al Sham is also believed to be heavily influenced, if not controlled by al-Qaeda. A founding member and senior official of Ahrar al Sham, Mohamed Bahaiah, has revealed in social media posts associated with the organisation that he is a senior al-Qaeda operative. Both Jabhat al Nusra and Ahrar al Sham have cut their ties with the Islamic State group, although Ahrar al Sham has fought alongside IS in the past.

Why Is Bird Flu Hitting Millions of CAFO Birds but Sparing Backyard Flocks?
23rd May 2015
‘Bird flu is hitting an unprecedented number of CAFO lot chickens right now, but the situation is being reported in the mainstream media as a mystery. Why are backyard flocks escaping the virulent bird flu that’s wiping out millions of caged birds in biosecure metal buildings? Is it because birds raised in fresh air and sunshine are more capable of fighting off viruses? If that was true then why are the wild waterfowl: ducks and geese, etc., catching the deadly flu? Or maybe they’re not. Something is just not adding up here…
Could it be, as one commenter suggested below, intentional to make the price of meat and eggs skyrocket?’

Saturday 23rd May 2015
‘Memorial Day commemorates soldiers killed in war. We are told that the war dead died for us and our freedom. US Marine General Smedley Butler challenged this view. He said that our soldiers died for the profits of the bankers, Wall Street, Standard Oil, and the United Fruit Company. Here is an excerpt from a speech that he gave in 1933:
War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

Labour peer Lord Janner was re-appointed to a parliamentary committee last JUNE – despite being ‘too ill’ with dementia to be interviewed by police over child sex claims
23rd May 2015
‘Alleged paedophile Lord Janner was re-appointed to a parliamentary committee last June despite being ‘too ill’ with dementia to be interviewed by police, it was revealed today.
The Labour peer was put on Parliament’s joint committee on consolidation bills – which considers how to combine complex acts – six months after detectives raided his home in London.
It was also three months after detectives searched his office at the House of Lords, during their investigation into allegations against him of sexually abusing boys, Exaro has found.
His appointment also came shortly after police sought advice from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) because Janner’s lawyers were claiming that he was in no state to be interviewed because of dementia.

After four weeks of negotiations at the United Nations on ways to improve compliance with the NPT, the United States announced on Friday that there was “no agreement” and accused Arab countries of torpedoing the nuclear disarmament negotiations.
The talks ended in failure after the US and its allies, Canada and Britain rejected a proposal made by Arab countries to establish a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East by March 2016.’

U.S. Intelligence Predicted: U.S. Support For Rebels in Syria Would Lead To Fall of Ramadi
May 21, 2015 MoA
Three new news items provide that the Obama administration, as well as Turkey and other countries, have knowingly created the current situation in Syria and Iraq. They knew that their support of the opposition which from the beginning included Al Qaeda would likely lead to the creation of an Islamic State. The administration was warned as early as August 2012 that this would then lead to the fall of Mosul and Ramadi to an Al Qaeda entity.
Thanks to Brad Hoff for pointing in the comments here to the Defense Intelligence Agency reports from August and October 2012 about the war on Syria. The DIA was the one U.S. intelligence agency that got the Iraq WMD case right but its appraisals, for example that the famous "aluminum tubes" were ordered by Iraq to build mortar tubes, were suppressed by the Bush administration. The now published heavily redacted DIA reports were released after Freedom Of Information Act litigation by the conservative Judicial Watch.

21 May 2015 Ziad Fadel
Tadmur (Palmyra): Even nominally friendly sites like NSNBC are misreporting events in this historically important town in the far east of Homs Governorate. Many sites are simply making the fatuous statement that the entire city of Palmyra has been overrun by ISIS fanatics and that includes Alalam and Al-Mayaadeen. Interesting to note that neither news source has anyone on the ground there to report directly.
Two days ago, the SAA and militias supported by local tribesmen and the ubiquitous Syrian Air Force clobbered ISIS destroying whole convoys of trucks and armored pickups armed with anti-aircraft guns. By the SAA’s reckoning, that was the end of the assault on the town. We reported confidently that the brunt of the ISIS assault was crushed by the combination of forces mentioned in the foregoing.
The night of May 20, 2015 saw a unique operation by, what is claimed to be, “thousands” of foot soldiers crowding into the northern neighborhoods of this small city. With stealth, they managed to establish a salient in the north which would eventually secure the arrival of hundreds more of the terrorist vermin. It was this morning when the battle for the center of the city began. Arrayed against the ISIS rodents are the NDC, Ba’ath Party militias and local fighters committed to keeping Saudi-style nihilism out of their lives. Interesting, too, is that the terrorists did not use a suicide truck bomber to open a corridor into the town.
The mistake was to assume that the ISIS threat was gone and to withdraw many troops from the city in order to protect other sites, especially the newly recovered gas and oil stations. This left the town largely unprotected. In addition to this, our military sources state that the bulk of the ISIS rodents were remnants of defeated units at the Al-Shaa’er Mountain area where many gas fields are located.
Friendly sites kept repeating that Palmyra was “strategically” important. Every site in Syria is reported as “strategically important” and its becoming nauseating. Palmyra is not important militarily unless you are a terrorism supporter, in which case, every hamlet becomes a major site for blocking this or that. It happens to be important strictly from the standpoint that it contains a tourism-rich Roman city considered a gem of architectural splendor in the desert.
All inhabitants of the town have been evacuated, just like Idlib. The rats won’t have anyone to behead here unless they can capture a soldier or militiaman.
The SAA has redeployed forces to all entrances to the town. All, I repeat “all”, corridors into the city are under the control of the SAA. SAA artillery and SAAF sorties are destroying whole nests of ISIS rats – a process made even easier by the evacuation of citizens. The SAA has already retaken the two checkpoints at the Museum and the Khattaab Quarter. There is an on-going pitched battle now around the National Security Building. The SAA has recovered control over the Military Security Headquarters and all Western Hills including the Desert Falcons Branch HQ and the Citadel.
As I write, I am informing NSNBC, that there is a very violent battle going on at the city center. The Palmyra ruins remain in the hands of the Syrian Army.
This is the best news I can bring you at the present time. I will continue to update as more Intel comes in.

Head of Russian Military Intelligence Accuses West of Creating Islamist Terror Network
May 22, 2015 99 Comments
Dear friends,
I am posting today the speech of Colonel-General Igor Sergun, Head of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia. To say that his man, or the GRU is secretive would be an understatement. Almost all the information publicly available about Sergun is in the short biography (researched by Scott) which I have placed at the end of this post. As a general rule, the GRU never makes a public statement, nor does the person heading it. It is thus interesting that on one of the very few occasions were General Sergun agreed to speak in public, he chose to focus on the risks of the so-called “Islamic” extremism and that in a relatively short presentation, he made four reference to the fact that these “Islamic” terrorists are basically a creature of the West. One might be tempted to say “nothing new here, we all know that” – but that would be missing the point. The point is that the head of Russian military intelligence is openly declaring that the so-called “Islamic terrorism” is not an original or indigenous phenomenon, but an instrument in the toolset of western imperialism which is used to subvert the countries which dare oppose the worldwide hegemony of the AngloZionist Empire.

Re: Head of Russian Military Intelligence Accuses West of Creating Islamist Terror Network
"Russia needs an external enemy to justify their actions to the Russian people, and, indeed, the world that reads RT, Sputnik News and here, Lifenews.ru – all sources of Russian propaganda mis-advertised as Russian news. If Russia does not have an external enemy to focus upon, the Russian people might become painfully aware of Russian corruption, gross incompetence in the Russian budget and unjustified Russian aggression. This may well result in a colored revolution, as the Russian government fears the most."

Note the paranoia.

EU Prepares to Abandon Ukraine
Kremlin discloses details of high-level negotiations with EU that would change Association Agreement beyond all recognition, forever ending any prospect of Ukraine’s integration with the West and the EU
May 22 2015 Alexander Mercouris
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s website is providing fascinating details of a high level government meeting that took place in the Kremlin on 20th May 2015.
The meeting covered a broad range of economic issues, but I shall focus here on one particular issue, which is what the report tells us about the state of the tripartite negotiations Russia is having with the EU and Ukraine over Ukraine’s Association Agreement with the EU, and what the negotiations also tell us about the strength or otherwise of the EU’s commitment to Ukraine.
It appears from the report that the EU’s commitment to Ukraine is weakening, and that the EU might be preparing to wrap up its Ukrainian adventure.
This of course is what the results of Putin’s talks with Merkel in February and with Kerry this month also suggest. However the report on Putin’s website offers the first written confirmation of this from an official — albeit Russian — source.
I discussed the Association Agreement in some detail in an article I wrote earlier this month for Russia Insider (see How the EU Association Agreement Makes Existing Ukraine-Russia Trade Links Impossible, Russia Insider, 4th May 2015).
I explained in that article that contrary to what most people think, the Association Agreement is not simply a free trade agreement between Ukraine and the EU (even though it calls itself that) but that it is in reality a device to make Ukraine part of the European Economic Area and the European Single Market subject to the regulation of the EU bureaucracy in Brussels and the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.

[...] Since adoption of these Russian proposals would mark the final failure of the Maidan revolution, the Ukrainian government is certain to oppose them bitterly.
