IMF DATA SHOWS ICELAND'S ECONOMY RECOVERED AFTER IT IMPRISONED BANKERS AND LET BANKS GO BUST - INSTEAD OF BAILING THEM OUT

'It is dangerous that someone is too big to investigate - it gives a sense there is a safe haven.' 'It is dangerous that someone is too big to investigate - it gives a sense there is a safe haven.'?

Iceland’s finance minister has announced a 39 per cent tax on investors looking to take their money overseas.

The country has imposed the tax to prevent it hemorrhaging money as it loosens bank laws imposed six years ago, when Iceland made the shocking decision to let its banks go bust.

Iceland also allowed bankers to be prosecuted as criminals – in contrast to the US and Europe, where banks were fined, but chief executives escaped punishment.

The chief executive, chairman, Luxembourg ceo and second largest shareholder of Kaupthing, an Icelandic bank that collapsed, were sentenced in February to between four and five years in prison for market manipulation.

If Your BS Detector Isn’t Shrieking, It’s Broken

Wishing it was true doesn’t make it true–it makes you a chump who fell for the con.

Once upon a time in America, no adult could survive without possessing a finely tuned BS detector. Herman Melville masterfully captured America’s fascination with cons and con artists in his 1857 classic The Confidence-Man, which I discussed in The Con in Confidence (October 4, 2006).

An essential component of the American ethos is: don’t be a chump. Don’t fall for the con. And if you do, it’s your own fault. The Wild West wasn’t just thieves shooting people in the back (your classic “gunfight” in the real West)–it was a simmering stew of con artists, flim-flammers and grifters exploiting the naive, the trusting and the credulous.

Barack Obama: No Jack Kennedy

A half century ago – at the peak of the Cold War – President Kennedy appealed to humankind’s better nature in a daring overture to Soviet leaders, a gamble that brought bans on nuclear testing and a safer world, a bravery that President Obama can’t seem to muster, says ex-CIA analyst Ray McGovern.

A Rapprochement Or Just Wishful Thinking?

The current jockeying by potential candidates for the 2016 presidential elections is a perfect example of how true national interests are sacrificed for the sake of personal gains.

Iran could prove to be a powerful strategic partner to the United States, as long as its independence and regional influence are not threatened.

FBI Versus FIFA - Playing Hard Ball With Soft Power

The FBI agents who broke the International Football Federation scandal in late May by getting a bunch of foreigners arrested in Switzerland are naturally convinced that their sole purpose is to combat corruption. American ideologues who advocate “R2P” – the “right and responsibility to protect” – have no doubt that U.S. armed intervention is a suitable way to protect human rights. Air Force officers who bomb people in Afghanistan, Pakistan or Yemen take it for granted that they are eliminating terrorism.

Don't Be Fooled: New Bipartisan Authorization for Use of Military Force Greenlights Endless War

China Launches Internet Police, Governments Everywhere Jealous

By James Holbrooks

On June 1 China’s Ministry of Public Security announced the formation of an Internet police force that would actively patrol social media. For Chinese citizens it was official confirmation of what they already knew—the government is monitoring their speech. Dubbed “Internet Police Inspection and Law Enforcement,” the program consists of a network of social media accounts tasked with, among other things, preventing the spread of “improper” words and detecting “illegal and harmful information.”...

Canada’s police-state bill passes final parliamentary hurdle

With yesterday’s ratification of Bill C-51 by the Senate, the Conservative government’s police-state legislation requires only royal assent in the form of the Governor-General’s signature to become law.

Framed by Stephen Harper and his Conservative government as an anti-terrorist measure, Bill C-51 dramatically expands the powers of the national security apparatus to spy on and suppress opposition to the ruling elite’s agenda of austerity and imperialist aggression.

The Denver PD Will No Longer Allow Its Officers to Shoot at Moving Cars Unless They Are Being Fired Upon

I suppose this is… a… victory for the people?

Apparently, it used to be a mere recommendation not to just open fire on cars with people in them who might not even be armed or a real threat.

A recommendation the Denver cops who shot and killed an unarmed 17-year-old girl driving a stolen car back in January didn’t take.

BILDERBERG GROUP’S TRANSHUMANIST CORPORATE COMMUNISM

The elusive, secretive Bilderberger Group is set to meet this week in Watford, England with plans to reportedly hand the “baton” of leadership on to Google. I recall back in 1999 first reading about the Bilderberg Group on an obscure conspiracy site now long gone. At that time, if you mentioned the Bilderberg Group or other leftist elite combines, you were considered insane. Indeed, even a few years ago, major news and so-called “conservative” news refused to mention Bilderberg, with neo-con talkmongers cowering to what they falsely consider capitalism. While it may be considered a good sign that Bilderberg is now appearing in mainstream news due to sites like Drudge and Infowars forcing the elite entity into public view, Bilderberg is still able to hide behind a mask of so-called capitalism.

Friday Vote: Congress Rushing the TPP Through Even Though They Know Americans Will Lose Their Jobs

There's nothing free about free trade.

The only reason Congress is holding out to vote on the TPP until Friday according to Politico is "They’re trying to resolve a last-minute hangup over aid for workers who lose their jobs to free trade":

House leaders, confident but not yet certain they have the support to pass sweeping trade legislation, are aiming to bring the package to a floor vote by the end of this week — even as they rush to resolve a last-minute hangup over how to pay for aid to displaced workers.

This means Congress is WELL AWARE a lot of people are about to lose their jobs once the TPP that none of us have even gotten to read goes through...

Bill Clinton pressured lawyer to drop lawsuit against child sex partner

"The last thing Bill and Hillary Clinton want Americans thinking about is the image of their own teenage female children being pawed at by the likes of filthy rich, powerfully well-connected people such as 'Slick Willie,' Prince Andrew, and the self-righteous, protector of women's rights, Alan Dershowitz," said the private investigator.

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION ATTEMPTS TO TACK 20 YEARS ONTO MAN'S SENTENCE FOR POSSESSION OF BOOKS

"The government is trying to use my case to establish a legal precedent, where even if a person is not charged with actual terrorism offenses they can still try them as a ‘terrorist’ using the sentencing adjustment,” Robertson told The Intercept. “This is not just about prosecuting my case specifically, it’s about creating a precedent whereby the government can simply go through the books you own and use them to frighten people into believing that you’re a terrorist."

Why are Congressmen Signing Non-Disclosure Forms on Obama’s Secret Treaty?

Those who have been to this classified room to read it cannot discuss; and, it has been stated, most recently by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC), that members of Congress are required "to sign a non-disclosure agreement" that assures no member who has read it will discuss it.

According to former Arkansas Governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, "Obamatrade is a secret deal that most members of Congress who support it admit they haven't been to the secret room to read the secret deal."

Republican House Members Receive Rubber Stamps from Fight for the Future Ahead of Plans to 'Fast Track' President Obama’s Secret Trade Agenda

Late last week, House Republicans started to receive hand-delivered packages in large white envelopes addressed to each Representative by name and purportedly “from” President Barack Obama. The packages contained a satirical letter to Congress from the President asking Republicans, “Please rubber stamp my secret trade agenda.” The packages also contained a rubber stamp of the President’s face along with the text, “I approve President Obama’s secret trade deal.” Finally, the packages contained a fact sheet headlined, “Facts to Ignore when Rubber Stamping my Trade Deal.”

Toward the end of the presidency of George H.W. Bush, America stood alone at the top of the world — the sole superpower.

545 people are responsible for the mess, but they unite in a common con

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don't have the constitutional authority to vote n appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don't write the tax code. The Congress does. You and I don't set fiscal policy. the Congress does. You and I don't control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices - 545 human beings out of 238 million- are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

Driven Mad by Brutal Government

Governments have a number of ways that they can drive people insane. There are constant psychological assaults, and sometimes, something as simple as staying quiet and being indifferent can break someone’s mind. The following people weren’t insane to begin with, until they somehow got involved with a government agency. It led to them becoming so broken down that they may now be just empty shells of who they once were.

TIGTA: IRS Can’t Verify Qualifications For Obamacare Subsidies

In response to the delays in receiving required Exchange Periodic Data submissions, the IRS developed contingency plans in an effort to improve its ability to ensure the accuracy of PTC claims. However, without the required enrollment data from the Exchanges, the IRS will be unable to ensure that all taxpayers claiming the PTC bought insurance through an Exchange as required.

Is there anything about Obamacare that is actually working? Anything at all?
