Greeks Laugh As Bankers Implore Depositors Return Money - "Banks Are Trustworthy"

President of Greek Banks Association Louka Katseli appealed at the citizens to return their money to the banks. “Banks are absolutely trustworthy,” Katseli told Mega TV “as guaranteed by the ECB and the Bank Association, but they would have been even more powerful if 40 billion euros had not been withdrawn in the last months. Katseli, a former PASOK Minister, appealed to citizens to return their deposits to the banks “now that the banks are open” after a three-week holiday and capital controls.

WikiLeaks: NSA spied on German FM for years, ‘helped CIA to kidnap and torture’

A leaked NSA intercept shows that German FM Steinmeier was relieved to have “not received any definitive response” from the US on its rendition program at the time of the scandal, which exempted him from the need to act on the matter, WikiLeaks claims. The WikiLeaks publication intercept of the German FM’s communications, which was undertaken after his official visit to the US in November, 2005. The intercept revealed that Steinmeier “seemed relieved that he had not received any definitive response from the US Secretary of State [Condoleezza Rice] regarding press reports of CIA flights through Germany to secret prisons in Eastern Europe allegedly used for interrogating terrorism suspects,” the website claimed.

Jeb Bush defends McCain, but supported Swift Boat attacks against Kerry

But that outrage was missing ten years ago, when a political group attacked another Vietnam veteran -- then-Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic nominee who sought to unseat Bush's brother, the incumbent president, during the 2004 election.

Instead, Bush praised Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the group that lobbed attacks questioning Kerry's service record in Vietnam -- attacks McCain unequivocally criticized in 2004 as "dishonest and dishonorable."

Puerto Rico Says Services Come Before Agency Debt Payment

Puerto Rico’s budget director ratcheted up the risk of a default on some agency securities, saying cash from the commonwealth’s operating budget won’t be redirected to make debt payments due next month. The comments from Luis Cruz, director of the Office of Management and Budget, come as Standard & Poor’s slashed its rating on the Public Finance Corp.’s bonds to CC from CCC-, calling an Aug. 1 default on the securities a “virtual certainty.”

Federal Court Orders Securities and Exchange Commission to Release Documents Related to Chiquita’s Support of Terrorism in Colombia

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been ordered by a federal appeals court to release nearly 10,000 records to a university research group investigating Chiquita Brands International’s support of a terrorist group in Colombia. The National Security Archive, based at The George Washington University in Washington, DC, had to sue to get the documents, which were requested under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). It took its case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, which directed the SEC to release 9,257 pages of records produced by Chiquita related to the AUC payments.

New Immigrants from China and India Now Outnumber Immigrants from Mexico

The debate over immigration in the United States has a new geographic direction. No longer is Mexico the leading country for new immigrants into the U.S., according to figures from the U.S. Census Bureau. As of 2013, China and India sent more immigrants to the U.S. than Mexico, Census figures show. About 147,000 Chinese immigrants arrived two years ago, followed by India with 129,000. Mexico was third, sending 125,000 to the U.S.

The Total Failure of Gun Control Captured in One Photo

This point will ever be focused on in the mainstream media for long. More gun laws won’t save anyone. Criminals are called such because they commit crimes. They do not follow laws.

If you want to know why gun control doesn’t work, you only need to look at one photo to see why.

Shock Video Catches Another Top Planned Parenthood Doctor Selling Body Parts of Aborted Babies

A second shocking video in as many weeks has been released showing a top Planned Parenthood official discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies. The first video shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

In this video, Mary Gatter, the Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in Calfiornia, discusses selling aborted baby body parts with undercover investigators posing as officials with a biotech company that acts as a middleman to sell aborted baby body parts to universities and other places that conduct such research. Gatter is a senior official within Planned Parenthood and is President of the Medical Directors’ Council, the central committee of all Planned Parenthood affiliate medical directors.

11-minute video: Japan awakes to being an economic slave colony of the US, approaching revolution

hat tip: Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange and economist Marc Abela

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uW_Bs7xHLL4&feature=em-subs_digest

Economist Marc Abela explains in the video that Japanese are awakening to the fact that their government serves interests other than those of the Japanese people:

Prime Minister Abe works for increasing and ongoing financial support of US unlawful and lie-began wars, including keeping the US military on bases in Japan.
Abe works for increased domestic surveillance similar to the US and UK.
Japan, as all former imperialist nations, creates what they use for money as debt. These mechanics are like adding negative numbers forever, and cause increasing, unpayable, tragic-comic total debt.
Despite Japan’s debt, they are a leading buyer of US debt with $1.2 trillion.
Robotics is not leveraged to decrease work time, but used to drive wages down and cause the people to work ever-increasing hours to survive.

Chattanooga Gunman Yet Another Mass Shooter on Antidepressants: Are You Even Surprised?

By now most people know the basic facts, at least what are called “facts” as reported by the mainstream media regarding the Tennessee mass shooting.

According to reports, last Thursday twenty-four-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire at a Chattanooga army recruiting center, injuring a police officer. Then he opened fire at a navy recruiting center about five miles away, killing four servicemen and wounding another three, one of whom later passed away. All told, five people lost their lives before the Abdulazeez was shot and killed by police.

By now, it shouldn’t surprise anyone much that the media is reporting Abdulazeez was depressed and taking medications for it, medications which he frequently started and stopped.

Driver Pulled Over for Hanging an Air Freshener in His Car

It all started when Michigan resident Richard Houghton was driving through Wisconsin, where he was pulled over by a police officer. The reason? He apparently had an air freshener hanging from his rear view mirror, and a GPS unit on his dash, which according to the police officer, were obstructing his view of the road and were thus illegal under state law. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded a small amount of marijuana. Houghton was arrested and charged with 2 years of probation, and his car was seized under civil forfeiture laws.

China Finally Reveals How Much Gold It Has

For the first time in six years, China has updated the status of their national gold reserves. As part of their move to join the IMF’s basket of currencies, they were asked to come clean on the amount of gold they’ve accumulated in recent years. However, the numbers they’ve given have left investors feeling skeptical.

Officially, they now have 1,658 tons of gold. The last time that number was updated in April of 2009, it stood at 1,054 tons, which is roughly a 60% increase, and places their gold haul above Russia’s. That’s pretty impressive, but it falls far short of what investors had expected. When they first announced that they were going to reveal their stockpile two months ago, the most conservative estimates placed their gold holdings at 3000 tons, or double what they recently reported. Due to the fact that China is the largest gold producer, and nearly the largest gold importer, their current numbers are dubious at best.

It announced last Friday that it was starting legal action against Israel's UN Mission for alleged defamation.

BRICS bank opens for operations in Shanghai

BRICS New Development Bank (NDB) has opened for operations in Shanghai, and will seek to deploy its $50 billion initial capital to fund infrastructure and sustainable development projects.

Chinese Finance Minister Lou Jiwei, Shanghai Mayor Yang Xiong and NDB chief Kundapur Vaman Kamath attended the ceremony, China Radio International reported.

At the inauguration ceremony Jiwei was quick to point out that NDB will serve as a complement to the existing international financial system and would focus its efforts on innovation and governance. The same message was echoed by Vaman Kamath.

"Our objective is not to challenge the existing system as it is but to improve and complement the system in our own way,” NDB President Kundapur Vaman Kamath said.

There are in fact several categories of vassals. Category I includes countries like UK and Israel which actually enjoy a pretty privileged relationship.

Economic grace of ‘Social Credit’: national dividend and compensated retail prices to facilitate consumer goods distribution in an age of robotics

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

by guest author Wallace Klinck

“The unacknowledged, but obvious, truth is that unnecessary work, imposed by either edict or contrived financial legerdemain, is slavery and servitude—totally irrational and immoral. Every engineer worthy of the name is trying to eliminate the need for human effort as a factor of production while every witless or hypocritical politician, pressured by the financial powers above and an insecure and uncomprehending population below, is professing, at least, to promote policies designed to ‘put people back to work.’” (from the below article)

Austerity Measures: Who Is Really Paying for the Bailout in Greece?

As the collapse of Greece accelerates, the most vulnerable citizens are paying for the bad decisions of the government.

Despite the wishes of the people of Greece, who voted overwhelmingly against accepting the "help" 10 days ago, the government has caved to the EU and is negotiating the terms of a third "bailout." In the agreement, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany has deemed that none of the debt will be forgiven, but the payments could potentially be stretched out over a longer period of time.

Of course, the ins and outs of these billions of dollars don't really mean that much to the individual people of Greece. And therein lie the lessons for the rest of the world.

What's Wrong with Our Monetary System and How to Fix It

But money is too important to be left to the bankers. There is no good reason to give any private group a lucrative monopoly over the creation of money; money creation should be the public service most people mistakenly believe it to be. Further, privatized money creation allows a few large banks and financial institutions not only to profit by simply making bookkeeping entries, but to direct overall investment in the economy to their corporate cronies, not the public at large.

Ordinary people can get the financing they need only on burdensome if not ruinous terms, leaving them as debt peons weighed down by mortgages, student loans, auto loans, credit card balances, etc. The interest payments extracted from these loans feed the private investment machine of Wall Street finance, represented by the ultimate creditor class: the notorious “one percenters.”

It was the spring of 1968, and Donald Trump had it good.
He was 21 years old and handsome with a full head of hair. He avoided the Vietnam War draft on his way to earning an Ivy League degree. He was fond of fancy dinners, beautiful women and outrageous clubs. Most important, he had a job in his father’s real estate company and a brain bursting with money-making ideas that would make him a billionaire.

Israelis, Saudis Considering Attack on Iran in Wake of Nuke Deal

By Brandon Turbeville

I have argued from the very beginning of the US-Iran nuclear talks that the diplomacy taking place was nothing more than theatre to be used later in the rush to war as evidence that the US did “everything in its power” to avoid confrontation. Considering the years of propaganda surrounding Iran and its nuclear program, it should be clear that the recent US-Iran nuclear deal was nothing more than a show...

Should Drug and Alcohol Tests Be Required In Officer-Involved Shootings?

Seeing as police killed more Americans in 2014 than all U.S. mass shootings combined, getting to the bottom of the problem and increasing accountability are more important than ever. Drug testing police involved in shootings is an argument up for debate in the state of North Carolina - at least it is currently up for scrutiny and speculation.

An investigation conducted in part by Greensboro's News & Record found that it is incredibly rare for a North Carolina officer to have a drug test after an officer involved shooting - even the fatal ones.

Army eyes North Cascades for helicopter training

Army aviation officials at Joint Base Lewis-McChord want to create a North Cascades training area for helicopter pilots to practice flyovers and high-altitude landings on U.S. Forest Service lands.

It would include seven remote landing zones, including one just inside the boundary of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area and another within a mile of the Pacific Crest Trail north of Highway 20.

What If Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie?

There is a war going on right now and it doesn’t involve guns or the military industrial complex.
It’s a war on consciousness and most people are clueless that it even exists.

In the beginning… there was religion and government.
It is blatantly obvious that religion has been teaching either half truths or full out lies, right from the start. According to the Christian bible, God created Adam and Eve and told them to be fruitful and multiply.

Based under this premise, we would all be the products of incest.

British Royal Nazi Salute – a Sign of the Times

The British royal family is up in arms – excuse the pun – over old video footage that shows the young Queen Elizabeth giving a Heil Hitler salute. A photograph published on its front page by British tabloid newspaper The Sun has caused a storm of controversy, with the British monarchy denouncing it as an invasion of privacy. But the real significance is that the image shows how Western so-called democracies were – and still are – so close to embracing fascism.

There was a consensus among Britain’s ruling class during the 1930s that quietly but enthusiastically endorsed Hitler and fascism as a bulwark against democracy and socialism in particular.
