Russia Restructures Cyprus Debt; Cyprus Prohibits US Military Strikes On Syria

Russia Restructures Cyprus Debt; Cyprus Prohibits US Strikes On Syria (ZeroHedge, Aug 31, 2013):

Yesterday afternoon, Russia agreed to restructure Cyprus’ EUR 2.5 billion loan terms to a much more affordable 2.5% semi-annual coupon through 2016 and a principal re-payment over the following four years. While probably still out of reach for the desparate economy, it was a positive step. Of course, this ‘offer’ by Russia has its quid pro quo. This morning, Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides has stated that Cyprus territory will not be used to launch military strikes against Syria, as “Cyprus wants to live up to its responsibility as a shelter if needed for nationals of friendly countries who evacuate from Middle East”. It would appear Obama’s influence is fading everywhere…

Cyprus is located ~183 nautical miles west of Syria and is the EU member nearest to Syria.

What To Expect During The Next Stage Of Collapse

What To Expect During The Next Stage Of Collapse (Alt-Market, Aug 29, 2013):

For years now at Alt-Market (and Neithercorp.us) I have carefully outlined the most likely path of collapse to take place within the U.S., and a vital part of that analysis included economic destabilization caused by a loss of the dollar’s world reserve status and petro-status.  I have also always made clear that this fiscal crisis event would not occur in the midst of a political vacuum.  The central banks and international financiers that created our ongoing and developing disaster are NOT going to allow the destruction of the American economy, the dollar, or global markets without a cover event designed to hide their culpability.  They need something big.  Something so big that the average citizen is overwhelmed with fear and confusion.  A smoke and mirrors magic trick so raw and soul shattering it leaves the very population of the Earth mesmerized and helpless to understand the root of the nightmare before them.  The elites need a fabricated Apocalypse.

Don’t Show Obama This Report About Who Really Is Behind The Syrian Chemical Attacks

U.S. Finally Admits What Ron Paul Said: ‘Nobody Knows Who Set Off The Gas’

Oh, and by the way, Obama …

‘The U.S. is a Republic, NOT a Democracy!’ (Ron Paul)

… even if you and your puppet masters (which happen to be exactly the same people that control the Bushs, the Clintons etc.) would like us to believe otherwise.

And we all know exactly why!

“Republics decline into democracies and democracies degenerate into despotisms.”
– Aristotle

“The Council on Foreign Relations is ‘the establishment.’ Not only does it have influence and power in key decision-making positions at the highest levels of government to apply pressure from above, but it also announces and uses individuals and groups to bring pressure from below, to justify the high level decisions for converting the U.S. from a sovereign Constitutional Republic into a servile member state of a one-world dictatorship.
– Former Congressman John Rarick 1971

Again, the U.S. is a Republic, …

“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country; corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in High Places will follow, and the Money Power of the Country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the People, until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. “
– Abraham Lincoln

The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the proceedings ended in order to learn what had been produced behind closed doors. The answer was provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Benjamin Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

Obama Saying the U.S WILL STRIKE Syria because it is a National Security Issue, but will get Congressional Approval – Assad committed the Chemical Attack (Sherrie Questioning All, Aug 31, 2013):

Obama is saying the U.S. will strike Syria.   But he did just say he will go ahead and get Congressional Approval for the war.  He proclaimed he didn’t need Congress’s approval but will go ahead and get it.

He spewed a lot of rhetoric full of LIES!   He forgot to mention how many times the U.S. has poisoned others and murdered others through chemical and biological weapons.  He didn’t mention the depleted uranium we have spread around Iraq.  The poisons that are sprayed in our air every day with chemtrails, poison of our water with fluoride and our food with GMO.

He didn’t mention how Israel uses chemical weapons and murders people all the time.

What an absolute Bullshit speech!

Here is his speech.


… every time he opens his mouth.

25 QUOTES About The Coming War With Syria That Every American Should See

25 Quotes About The Coming War With Syria That Every American Should See (Economic Collapse, Aug 29, 2013):

If Barack Obama is going to attack Syria, he is going to do it without the support of the American people, without the approval of Congress, without the approval of the United Nations, and without the help of the British.  Now that the British Parliament has voted against a military strike, the Obama administration is saying that it may take “unilateral action” against Syria.  But what good would “a shot across Syria’s bow” actually do?  A “limited strike” is not going to bring down the Assad regime and it is certainly not going to end the bloody civil war that has been raging inside Syria.  Even if the U.S. eventually removed Assad, the al-Qaeda affiliated rebels that would take power would almost certainly be even worse than Assad.  Even in the midst of this bloody civil war, the rebels have taken the time and the effort to massacre entire Christian villages.  Why is Barack Obama so obsessed with helping such monsters?  There is no good outcome in Syria.  The Assad regime is absolutely horrible and the rebels are even worse.  Why would we want the U.S. military to get involved in such a mess?

India: Government Moves To Ban Google’s Gmail

India Moves to Ban Gmail (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 31, 2013):

The fallout from the Snowden revelations continue. While India has already been attempting to fight economic reality with import duties on gold in an desperate move to reduce buying, they are now also trying to take further control of their technology infrastructure. Although this may appear to be a good thing on the surface, perhaps it is merely a move to further consolidate their own domestic snooping powers, which we already know they are trying to do.

In the latest news, it is being reported that the government will soon ask its employees to stop using Google’s Gmail due to the presence of the company’s servers within the U.S.

More from The Times of India:

BANGALORE/NEW DELHI: The government will soon ask all its employees to stop using Google’s Gmail for official communication, a move intended to increase security ofconfidential government information after revelations of widespread cyberspying by the US.

A senior official in the ministry of communications and information technology said the government plans to send a formal notification to nearly 5 lakh employees barring them from email service providers such as Gmail that have their servers in the US, and instead asking them to stick to the official email service provided by India’s National Informatics Centre.

New Snowden Leak Reports ‘Groundbreaking’ NSA Crypto-Cracking

And as you can see, the U.S. government told the Washington Post what to print and what not.

Another important & transparent leak you can believe in.

What real NSA whistleblower would trust the Washington Post anyway???

“There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar weekly salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities, and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
– John Swinton, former New York Times Chief of Staff


New Snowden Leak Reports ‘Groundbreaking’ NSA Crypto-Cracking (Wired, Aug 29, 2013):

The latest published leak from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden lays bare classified details of the U.S. government’s $52.6 billion intelligence budget, and makes the first reference in any of the Snowden documents to a “groundbreaking” U.S. encryption-breaking effort targeted squarely at internet traffic.

Snowden, currently living in Russia under a one-year grant of asylum, passed The Washington Post the 178-page intelligence community budget request for fiscal year 2013. Among the surprises reported by Post writers Barton Gellman and Greg Miller is that the CIA receives more money than the NSA: $14.7 billion for the CIA, versus $10.8 billion for the NSA. Until this morning it’s generally been believed that the geeky NSA, with its basements full of supercomputers, dwarfed its human-oriented counterparts.

The Post published only 43 pages from the document, consisting of charts, tables and a 5-page summary written by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. The Post said it withheld the rest, and kept some information out of its reporting, in consultation with the Obama administration to protect U.S. intelligence sources and methods.

Prof. Chris Busby For RT: Wrecking The Earth: Fracking Has GRAVE RADIATION Risks Few Talk About

I did cover fracking and its radiation risks several times before. (See info down below.)


Wrecking the Earth: Fracking has grave radiation risks few talk about (RT, Aug 28, 2013):

Christopher Busby is an expert on the health effects of ionizing radiation and Scientific Secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk.

Environmentalists point to various dangerous consequences of using fracking technology, but none can be compared to the issue of radiation exposure and radioactive contamination of the development areas it poses.

UK government plans to use fracking technology in populated areas of the country recently drew hundreds of people to the streets in protests. Protesters pointed to the dangerous example of the US, the worldwide leader in fracking, where hydraulic fracturing (which consumes vast amounts of water) led to areas of Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and Wyoming facing a dire water crisis.

Fracking involves toxic chemicals being lowered into kilometer-deep holes drilled in the ground to isolate gas and oil from shale. The toxic chemicals can then float into lakes and rivers or contaminate the ground. Also, fracking produces a disproportionate amount of waste, including radioactive water, which then has to be dumped somewhere.

The key to fracking

Uranium is the key element to fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, to use its proper name. In the real-world version of Phineas Fogg’s “Eighty Days Around the World,” burning the ship’s masts and furniture to make steam, governments are now encouraging the oil and gas merchants to blast their way deep into the Earth to squeeze the last ounce of oil and gas from that poor creature. But there will be a terrible revenge. Locked up in the strata into which they pump the pressurized process water, to fracture and thus create the huge surface area sponge which will yield up its cargo of gas and oil, is a monstrous amount of natural uranium and its deadly daughter Radium-226. And vast amounts of the radioactive alpha emitting gas Radon-222, and its own daughters Bismuth 214, Lead-210 and the alpha emitter Polonium-210. Remember Polonium-210? That was the material used when a few millionths of a gram poisoned ex-Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko.

Deep down in the earth, there is a lot of radioactivity, which is safe enough, so long as it is not brought up to the surface. The technical term is NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material). When it is brought to the surface it becomes Technologically Enhanced, or TENORM, and it is a serious health problem near oil wells and gas production sites. It is in the production water, in the oil, in the gas, around the production sites, the groundwater, in the pipes and tanks – and in your kitchen.

Dr. Dean Burk Former Head Of National Cancer Institute Research: ‘Fluoridated Water Amounts To Public Murder On A Grand Scale’ (Video)

Here is another quote:

“Fluoride causes more human cancer, and causes it faster, than any other chemical.”
– Dean Burk, Chief Chemist Emeritus, US National Cancer Institute



YouTube Added: 04.02.2012

Description:

“When you have power you don’t have to tell the truth. That’s a rule that’s been working in this world for generations. And there are a great many people who don’t tell the truth when they are in power in administrative positions.”
—Dr. Dean Burk former head of National Cancer Institute Research

This interview was recorded live in Holland in the 1970′s, and as a result of it being broadcast, 100,000 people took to the streets and had fluoride removed immediately.
In Dr. Dean Burk’s own words; “this amounts to public murder on a grand scale, it is a public crime, it would be, to put fluoride in the drinking water of people”.

Dr. Dean Burk co-authored one of the most frequently cited papers in the history of biochemistry, “The Determination of Enzyme Dissociation Constants,” published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society in 1934.
In 1937, Dean became a co-founder of the US National Cancer Institute (NCI), and headed its Cytochemistry department for over three decades.

‘I KEEP Six Honest Serving-Men’ – Rudyard Kipling, The Elephant’s Child (1902)

I KEEP six honest serving-men
(They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.
I send them over land and sea,
I send them east and west;
But after they have worked for me,
I give them all a rest.

I let them rest from nine till five,
For I am busy then,
As well as breakfast, lunch, and tea,
For they are hungry men.
But different folk have different views;
I know a person small—
She keeps ten million serving-men,
Who get no rest at all!

She sends’em abroad on her own affairs,
From the second she opens her eyes—
One million Hows, two million Wheres,
And seven million Whys!

– Rudyard Kipling, The Elephant’s Child (1902)
British (Indian-born) author (1865 – 1936)

Don’t Show Obama This Report About Who Really Is Behind The Syrian Chemical Attacks

Don’t Show Obama This Report About Who Really Is Behind The Syrian Chemical Attacks (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2013):

As we showed mere days ago, it appears the truth of who the real puppet-master in the Middle-East is becoming plainer to see. The incredibly frank discussion between Saudi’s spy-chief Prince Bandar and Russia’s Putin exposed a much deeper plot is afoot and the following details from the actual people on the ground in the chemically-attacked region of Syria suggest Obama is playing right into the Saudi’s plan. While Obama is ‘certain’ that the chemical attacks took place on al-Assad’s orders, as MPN reports, “from numerous interviews with doctors, Ghouta residents, rebel fighters and their families, a different picture emerges. Many believe that certain rebels received chemical weapons via the Saudi intelligence chief, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, and were responsible for carrying out the dealing gas attack.”

The narrative for public consumption is well-known and quite clear – it was all as-Assad’s fault. And yet…

Hollande Undeterred By UK Shock: ‘France Will Participate. It Is Ready’ For Syrian Attack

Is France also ready for ‘a Putin response’?


Hollande Undeterred By UK Shock: “France Will Participate. It Is Ready” For Syrian Attack (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2013):

The Germans “haven’t considered any military participation… and are still not doing so.” The Brits unexpectedly voted ‘not’ to join Obama in an attack on Syria , with Cameron adding that he didn’t think “it’s a question of having to aplogize” to Obama. But Obama can rest assured as the French remains undeterred. After France refused to join the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, but was quickly aided by the US in the military intervention against Islamist militants in Mali earlier this year, Hollande is vehement of the need to “punish” Damascus, “France will participate. It is ready.” Sounds like a resounding ‘we’re in,’ right? It seems Hollande is dead set on lower French unemployment… by making every jobless person a soldier in Syria (packing at least one backup white flag of surrender). But, don’t get too excited since, with lukewarm public support, Hollande has said he will summon the French parliament to vote on the debate… on September 4th (no rush…).

Via The FT,

France is prepared to take action against Syria despite the vote against military intervention by Britain, its closest European military ally, French president François Hollande has said.

“The chemical massacre in Damascus cannot remain unpunished. If not, it would risk an escalation that would trivialise the use of these weapons and would threaten other countries,” said Mr Hollande.

He said he did not favour a military operation to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad but a deterrent strike to punish “a monstrous violation of human rights”.

Federal Reserve Owns 31.89% Of The U.S. Treasury Market: Up 0.3% In One Week!

Tick Tock… Tick Tock… Tick Tock…

Chart: Stone McCarthy

The Fed Owns 31.89% Of The Bond Market: Up 0.3% In One Week (ZeroHedge, Aug 30, 2013):

We have beaten this topic to death so we won’t say much more, suffice to say the chart below shows what is the key issue: too much monetization and it’s game over for the reserve currency; too little and it’s an uncontrolled market sell off, and with every passing week the margin for error gets less and less.

  • Last week the Fed owned $1.663 trillion in ten year equivalents, or 31.59% of total
  • This week the Fed owned $1.678 trillion in ten year equivalents, or 31.89% of total

In other words, the Fed’s holdings of the Treasury market, expressed though the correct 10 Year equivalent basis not the completely wrong total notional, rose by a whopping 0.3% in one week!

Annualize that (especially without a taper) to understand just how cornered the Fed now is (especially with the TBAC already complaining non-stop about lack of Treasury liquidity and eligible private-sector collateral).

By Simon Black

As everyone is now completely distracted with the looming prospect of yet another illegal war to be waged by the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize recipient, let’s look at a few other things going on while no one is looking.

Gun control

Today, the Obama administration announced fresh measures to restrict the availability of firearms in the Land of the Free.

This time around, they want to ban the re-importation of firearms that have been exported from the US to allied nations. They also want to raise the bar on federal background checks.

But rather than go through Congress, the Obama administration is simply going to create a new ‘rule’.

Obama Administration Views Israel As One Of The Top Spying Threats Facing Its Intelligence Services (The Hill)

… but hey, let’s give them some more billions every year:

PDF: U.S. Foreign Aid To Israel (Congessional Research Service, Aug 11, 2013):

Israel is the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II.

To date, the United States has provided Israel $118 billion (current, or non-inflation-adjusted, dollars) in
bilateral assistance.

Almost all U.S. bilateral aid to Israel is in the form of military assistance, although in the past Israel also received significant economic assistance.

In 2007, the Bush Administration and the Israeli government agreed to a 10-year, $30 billion military aid package spanning from Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 to Fiscal Year 2018.

During his March 2013 visit to Israel, President Obama pledged that the United States would continue to provide Israel with multi-year commitments of military aid subject to the approval of Congress.

Flashback:

President Obama: ‘I’m proud that even in these difficult times we’ve fought for and secured the most funding for Israel in history’ – ‘I am proud to say that no US administration has done more in support of Israel’s security than ours. None. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. It is a fact.’


Leaked documents reveal US sees Israel as a spying threat (Video) (The Hill, Aug 29, 2013):

The Obama administration views Israel as one of the top spying threats facing  its intelligence services, leaked documents reveal.

A secret budget request obtained  byThe Washington Post from former NSA contractor Edward  Snowden lumps Israel alongside U.S. foes Iran and Cuba as “key targets” for U.S.  counterintelligence efforts. The document suggests Israel does not believe U.S.  assurances that its interests are aligned with Israel’s on crucial issues such  as Iran and peace talks with the Palestinians.

“To further safeguard our classified  networks, we continue to strengthen insider threat detection capabilities across  the Community,” reads the FY 2013 congressional budget justification for  intelligence programs. “In addition, we are investing in target surveillance and  offensive CI [counterintelligence] against key targets, such as China, Russia,  Iran, Israel, Pakistan and Cuba.”

The White House and the Israeli Embassy did not respond to requests for  comment.

Ireland: 1,000 Irish People Emigrate A Week (About 1 Every 6 Minutes!)

1,000 Irish people emigrate a week (Irish Examiner, Aug 30, 2013):

Almost 1,000 Irish people left Ireland each week last year to find work abroad — the highest figure since the recession began in 2008.

According to the latest CSO figures, 50,900 Irish people emigrated in the 12 months to April. Overall, 89,000 people left the country in this period — an increase of 2.2% on the 87,100 in 2012.

The exodus has primarily affected young people, with more than 40,000 of those leaving the country under the age of 24. Around the same number were aged between 25 and 44.

Almost a quarter (21,900) of all people leaving the country went to Britain, while 17.3% (15,400) went to Australia.
