How to Punish Bank Felons

The penalty? The banks have agreed to pay $5.5 billion. That may sound like a big chunk of change, but for a giant bank it’s the cost of doing business. In fact, the banks are likely to deduct the fines from their taxes as business costs.

The banks sound contrite. After all, they can’t have the public believe they’re outright crooks.

Federal Reserve System a Run Away Machine-G. Edward Griffin

Edward Griffin, author of “The Creature from Jekyll Island,” says the global monetary system is out of control. Griffin contends, “There is nothing that can be done about it. This thing is a runaway machine. I would feel much better if these political figures would say hey, this is out of our control right now. We need a substantial change in the system. . . . We need more honesty. People have to stand up and say we are in for a tough time. There is no easy way out of this. We are in for a tough time. Hang on to your seatbelts. We are coming into the rapids now. We need that kind of honesty, but we are not getting it because most of these guys and gals in Washington are thinking well, it’s going to be bad, but at least I’m in a good spot. They are more worried about themselves and their families than they are worried about the nation.”

Obama Wants Regime Change in Ecuador

Obama is no man of the people. He never was throughout his political career. He serves powerful monied interests exclusively.

As an Illinois state senator, he represented Chicago real estate interests at the expense of Black communities they wanted gentrified. He disgraces the office he holds. He remains a front man for wealth, power and privilege.

BRICS Bank to commence business on 7 July

The BRICS New Development Bank will be launched at the first session of its Board of Governors in Moscow on 7 July, Russian officials have confirmed.

Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak announced at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum on Friday that the BRICS Bank will be ready for action after the maiden meet of the governors.

The New Development Bank will provide a financing alternative to the World Bank, where the five large emerging markets have sought more clout.

BRICS leaders also announced the establishment of the BRICS Contingent Reserve Arrangement, a 100-billion-dollar fund from which the BRICS member countries will be allowed to draw funds when going through a crisis.

The bank is set to be headquartered in Shanghai. India has already announced the first president of the Bank.

Sisi appoints Egypt's new ambassador to Israel

Egypt’s former envoy to the Arab League has been appointed as the country’s new ambassador to Israel.

According to a Sunday report by Egyptian state news agency MENA, President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi named Hazem Khairat (seen below) as Cairo’s new ambassador to Tel Aviv.

Khairat formerly served as Egypt’s deputy foreign minister and also as the country’s ambassador to the South American country of Chile.

No information has been revealed on the exact date of the start of Khairat’s mission, but reports said that he will most probably be dispatched to Israel in September.

Sisi’s decision came three years after Egypt’s ousted president, Mohamed Morsi, recalled Atef Salem, Cairo’s last ambassador to Tel Aviv, to protest against the regime’s eight-day aggression against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip. Since then, the Egyptian embassy in Israel has had no top representative.

America’s U.N. Ambassador Continues Standing Up for Nazis

Recently, President Barack Obama’s friend whom he appointed to represent this country at the United Nations visited Ukraine and used the Ukrainian-language translation and variant of the German Nazi Party’s “Deutschland über alles,” or “Germany above all,” to honor Ukraine’s own racist fascists, that nation’s ideological nazis, whom the U.S. had used in February 2014 for overthrowing Ukraine’s neutralist democratically elected President. This was not her first foray into international nazi political pandering.

Trapping Russia to Prove a Negative

The prove-a-negative trap is the Big Lie technique of Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels: there is no substance to the allegations and there is no obligation to present evidence to verify, thanks to the dutiful and unquestioning nature of Western corporate “journalism”.

The United States and its Western allies are trying to ensnare Russia in an audacious disinformation trap over the Ukraine conflict. That trap involves imposing an insoluble conundrum on Vladimir Putin’s government, which we might call “prove a negative”. It is a familiar conceptual device that Washington has used elsewhere, against Iraq and Iran for example, in order to pursue what are otherwise illegitimate geopolitical aims.Russia is being held up as the guilty party that is undermining the shaky Minsk ceasefire; and Western economic sanctions are being extended “until Russia implements the ceasefire”.

What’s the deal with the TPP?

By Jeb Kicker

Many Americans have heard of this giant trade deal known as the TPP, or Trans-Pacific Partnership. Most don’t have a clue what the agreement actually contains or what effects it will have on our situation in America. All citizens should at least know what is being discussed; this pact will have enormous implications and the widespread ignorance of its provisions is by design. Let’s dive in...

State Power and the Execution of the Rosenbergs

Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were the first and only American civilians to be executed for espionage, electrocuted at the Sing Sing Prison in Ossining, NY, 62 years ago, on June 19, 1953. The couple was, according to the New York Times, “stoic and tight-lipped to the end … .” They “went to their deaths with a composure that astonished the witnesses.”

Our "Stealth Politics" of Inequality

The Myth of Global ‘Free’ Trade

The key to TTIP is the so-called Investor-State Dispute Settlement mechanism that essentially gives corporations free reign to sue governments using a “failure to implement” provision, if state policies or legislation interfere with profits. But is this all about trade?

There was a direct, crucial “secret” agenda linking the G7 meeting in Germany and the Bilderberg meeting in Austria last week; the advancement of the virtually secret negotiations towards the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the massive free trade agreement between the US and the EU.

Even though the corporate powers behind TTIP are itching for a deal to be reached before the end of 2015, serious (negotiation) trouble remains.

Trump for President? — Paul Craig Roberts

This is not my endorsement of Trump for President. It is merely my speculations on how we might think of how large egos might be brought into our service.

Celente put it well. If you look at the sorry collection that aspires to be the CEO of what continues to be described as the “exceptional, indispensable, most important country with the largest economy and military, the world’s only Superpower, the Uni-power,” you see a collection of nobodies. America is like the last days of Rome when contenting factions fought to put their puppet on the throne.

In actual fact, Trump might be our best candidate to date. By all accounts, he is very rich. Thus, he doesn’t need the office in order to become rich by selling out America to interest groups.

Alison Weir Replies to JVP Leaders’ McCarthy-like Attacks

It is time to stop fighting among ourselves, for JVP and others to stop their witch hunts against deeply committed writers and activists, for JVP to stop its attempted censorship and domination of the Palestine movement, and for all of us to get on with our desperately important work.

With the publication of my book last year, “Against our Better Judgment: The hidden history of how the US was used to create Israel,” the attacks seemed to escalate.

It appeared that some JVP leaders were attempting to thwart my talks and prevent people from learning the facts that my book and my talks contain.

EXCLUSIVE: Baron Rothschild indicted in France over fraud case

FRENCH police have been ordered to track down one of Europe’s wealthiest aristocrats over a fraud involving hundreds of British pensioners.

Baron David de Rothschild has been indicted over the allegations after the victims, mostly expats living in Spain, bought into his loan scheme.

The banking magnate will now be questioned in his native France, five years after a Marbella-based law firm began legal action against him.

French police have been told by a judge in Paris to track down the wealthy scion who has various homes in the country.

How Edmund de Rothschild Managed to Let 179 Governments Pay Him for Grasping Up to 30% of The Earth

After Edmund de Rothschild’s statement, totally without basis, at the 4th World Wilderness Congress in 1987, that CO2 is the cause of (a non-existent) global warming and that combating it needs money (our money), he founded the World Conservation Bank for this spurious reason.

In 1991 its name was changed to The Global Environment Facility (GEF).

The purpose of the Facility is to lend money to the poorest countries, 'money' printed by the IMF out of thin air and guaranteed by our governments.

The Facility seeks wilderness areas rich in minerals as security. The idea is that GEF money then flows back to reimburse our governments for loans. I.e., we give away our tax money. For what? When a country cannot repay loans to the GEF it must give up a piece of its territory to the Rothschild banks (GEF, IMF, World Bank).

The total amount of land involved can be as much as 30% of the Earth's surface.

List Of Black Serial Killers

One of the most frequent rejoinders spouted by anti-racists and lemmings in response to objective and empirical evidence of black disproportionality to crime is that an “overwhelming” number of serial killers are white. Invariably the names of Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacy are brandished as weapons of self-righteousness.

In response, the editor of the DetroitIsCrap blog invested several hours in researching, transcribing, and publishing the list of black serial killers provided below.

The NYTimes will only go so far in exposing divisions (and over-the-top tribalism) among Jews

Despite the well-known Jewish influence, the MSM in the US will often (surprisingly) take a pro-Palestinian tack regarding perhaps the most well-known of the perennial problems in the Mideast. Some of the media feel the need to present different viewpoints (if only to go through the motions?), employ left-wing journalists who are consistently pro-Israel, find fault with J Street but not demonize it, report on the involvement of (outlying) Jews in the BDS movement sympathetically, let the world know about the thoughts of a left-leaning Jew such as Max Blumenthal, and generally note divisions among the Jews.

To a point.

Hungary, Greece, Cyprus to Restart Food Trade With Russia Despite Sanctions

Russian health authorities are conducting audits of suppliers in all three countries, as well as India, Alexey Alexeyenko, the director of Rosselkhoznadzor (the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance) is quoted as saying. "About 20 companies will be verified in Greece and Hungary. In India — less, around four to five. Cyprus has requested a delay for technical reasons and therefore, the audits will begin on April 27, where seven to eight companies will be checked."

Bombshell Secret Documents Show Monsanto Knew About Glyphosate Link To Cancer Over 35 Years Ago

Recently, Samsel’s work led him to a place few have ever gone before: inside the pages of files containing safety tests on glyphosate that had been sealed away since 1981 as a “Trade Secret” by the request of the Monsanto Company.

Dr. Samsel was able to get the EPA to finally unseal these secret files, which contain information the public was never meant to see (at least according to Monsanto).

And while Samsel is legally not allowed to show anyone else the files, he is allowed to share his thoughts on them, as well as information that could implicate the company in a cancer cover-up of epic proportions.

Polish government plagued by spying scandal

Only a few months before parliamentary elections, new revelations about the spying scandal a year ago have plunged the conservative Civic Platform (PO) and government of Ewa Kopacz into a crisis that has the potential to intensify conflicts within the European Union.

A week ago, Kopacz announced the resignation of the president of parliament, Radoslaw Sikorski, the ministers of sports, health and privatization, as well as several state secretaries. The government is now pressing both the attorney general and the head of the anti-corruption authority to resign.

In the USA – “I Cannot Write!”

The West is finished, its culture dead. What is left is unattractive, even horrifying. There is no heart, no compassion, and no creativity.

It was the first time in many years that I had missed my column, my essays, for several weeks.

I was shocked by the state in which I found the United States.

I couldn’t breath. I lost the ability to write. I felt anger building inside me. The anger was suffocating, strangling me. It was unhealthy anger, mixed with frustration! It was not that sacred anger one feels when going to a battle against great evil. It was also somehow petty, indescribable, and pathetic. It was breaking me, humiliating me.

I hated the fights I had to fight here.

I tried to see the reality that was surrounding me with different eyes but wherever I looked I saw only a dysfunctional, sad, collapsing country and culture.

This visit broke me. It exhausted me. It thoroughly depressed me.

Big Pharma responsible for another mass shooting? SC church shooter took psych drugs before attack

Mass shootings, sadly, have become a part of the American lexicon, and without question the majority of the American people are not comfortable with this fact. The latest outrage: A young white man who allegedly possessed some racist animosity went into a predominantly black church in Charleston, S.C., and opened fire, telling one victim that blacks "rape our women," "are taking over our country" and "have to go."

Predictably, the mainstream and legacy media are using this tragedy as Exhibit A in their relentless push to paint the United States – whites, primarily – as racist, bigoted and intolerant. Unfortunately, and despite government statistics that actually show that whites are more commonly victims of so-called "hate" crimes – too many of our citizens will buy into the lie once more, making it ever more difficult for blacks and whites to reconcile.
