- Stunned Greeks React To Initial Capital Controls And The “Decree To Confiscate Reserves”, And They Are Not Happy

Earlier today, following weeks of speculation, Greece finally launched the first shot across the bow of capital controls, when it decreed that due to an “extremely urgent and unforeseen need” (ironically the need was quite foreseen since about 2010, but that is a different story), it would be “obliged” to transfer – as in confiscate – “idle cash reserves” located across the country’s local governments (i.e., various cities and municipalities) to the Greek central bank.

Several hours later the decree which was posted in the government gazette has finally percolated among the population, and the response to what even ordinary Greeks realize is now the endgame, is less than exuberant. Continue reading »

- US Navy Sends Aircraft Carrier, Warships To Intercept Iranian Weapons Shipments In Yemeni Waters (ZeroHedge, April 20, 2015):

Update: Because the report from AP does not play well with “Everyday Americans”, US CentCom is denying:

  • *U.S. DENIES REPORT SHIP SENT TO INTERCEPT IRAN VESSEL
  • *U.S. SAYS SHIP SENT TO KEEP SHIPPING LANES IN REGION OPEN

The ‘proxy’ war is escalating very rapidly. As AP reports, Navy officials confirm that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is headed to Yemeni waters to intercept an Iranian weapons shipments. Just as we warned 10 days ago, the probability of a major escalation over the latest proxy Middle Eastern civil war escalated substantially when Iran parked two warships off the Yemeni coast.

As AP details,

U.S. Navy officials say the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is steaming toward the waters off Yemen and will join other American ships prepared to intercept any Iranian vessels carrying weapons to the Houthi (HOO’-thee) rebels fighting in Yemen. Continue reading »

- Bank Of England Exposes US Cronyism: Questions Why Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Is Not Too Big To Fail (ZeroHedge, April 20, 2015):

If you thought currency-wars were a problem, just wait until crony-wars begin. In a stunning show of disagreement among the omnipotent, The FT reports that a Freedom of Information Act request has confirmed The Bank of England wrote to US authorities seeking clarity about Berkshire’s absence from a provisional list of “systemically import” (Too Big To Fail) financial institutions (SIFIs). The US Treasury declined to comment…

With MetLife suing the US government to try to escape being deemed systemically important by Washington (which means the firm may need to hold more capital to cover unexpected losses and could face a requirement to draw up “living wills” to make them easier to wind down in a crisis), The FT reports on questions over Berkshire Hathaway’s status…

British regulators have challenged their US peers over their apparent reluctance to subject Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway to tougher scrutiny as part of a worldwide push to make the financial system safer. Continue reading »

- Monsanto Furious At World Health Organization For Claiming Weedkiller Causes Cancer (ZeroHedge, April 20, 2015):

Following Monsanto lobbyist comments recently that he’s “not stupid” enough to drink the weedkiller that he also proclaimed was safe enough that “you can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you;”Reuters reports that the maker of the world’s most widely used herbicide, Roundup, wants an international health organization to retract a report linking the chief ingredient in the weedkiller to cancer. The company said on Tuesday that a report, issued on Friday by the WHO, was biased: “The WHO has something to explain.” However, as one scientist noted, “there are a number of independent, published manuscripts that clearly indicate that glyphosate…can promote cancer and tumor growth.”

As Reuters reports,

Monsanto, maker of the world’s most widely used herbicide, Roundup, wants an international health organization to retract a report linking the chief ingredient in Roundup to cancer.

The company said on Tuesday that the report, issued on Friday by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), was biased and contradicts regulatory findings that the ingredient, glyphosate, is safe when used as labeled. Continue reading »

- As Gazprom CEO Arrives In Athens, EU (Coincidentally) Files Anti-Trust Charges Against Russian Giant (ZeroHedge, April 20, 2015):

As the head of Russian gas giant Gazprom, Alexei Miller, arrives in Athens tomorrow (for talks with Greek PM Tsipras about “current energy issues of interest,” which we suspect will include finalizing the “Turkish Stream” pipeline heralded by many as Greece’s potential get-out-of-Troika-jail-card), he will face an increasingly anxious European Union. Fresh from its suit against Google, the WSJ reports, the EU’s competition regulator plans to file formal antitrust charges against Russia’s state-owned gas company OAO Gazprom on Wednesday. This re-opens a suit from 2012 saying that it suspected the company of abusing its dominant position in those countries’ natural-gas supply. It appears Europe is getting nervous…

The citizens of Italy have now set the standard for organized protests against the climate engineering nightmare in our skies. This April 18th demonstration in Bologna, Italy sets the stage for the upcoming March Against Geoengineering planned for April 25 in various locations around the world. Those who do not have organized anti-geoengineering protests in your area should try to attend one of the countless Earth Day events that have also been organized for April 25th. The human race faces countless challenges that are converging from every direction, but of all the threats currently descending on us the most dire and immediate of all is climate engineering. We have the power to expose and stop the ongoing geoengineering insanity if we work together in this all important battle, make your voice heard.

“Will fail”???

matrix-system-failure


- Multibillion Hedge Fund Manager: “Ultimately QE Will Fail; US And China Might Enter Recession At The Same Time” (ZeroHedge, April 20, 2015):

“Ultimately, the current QE programs will fail. I think most likely through a large devaluation in the emerging market currencies.  Having dodged and parried so many blows from Central Bank QE programs, the market is seemingly failing to break higher. Breadth is narrowing in the US stock market, and credit spreads widening. Economic data, with the exception of jobs, which is a lagging indicator, indicate the US economy is peaking. To me it looks like the US and China might go into recession at the same time.”

Lord-Janner-01

- Pedophile “Lord Janner” and the Golden Brick Road of Hypocrisy (Veterans Today, April 17, 2015):

By Gordon Duff

Lord Janner, longtime leader of Britain’s Zionist lobby and chief Nazi hunter, sent to Germany in 1945 at the request of his father while only 18 to supervise arrests of Nazi personnel leading up to the Nuremberg Tribunals, is now cited as one of the most notorious sex criminals in British history. 

Janner, personal confidant of both Netanyahu and Blair, has been a recognized pedophile for over 30 years. Police in Britain, though this is under legal challenge, are blocked from arresting Janner because of his eloquently expressed claim that he is suffering from dementia and should be allowed his freedom though accused of heinous crimes.

Cameron Implicated in Cover Up, Calling for Arrest of Victims as “Conspiracy nuts”

Prime Minister David Cameron has been, thus far, the strongest advocate for ending investigations into Britain’s pedophile “industry.” In a story from today’s Daily Mail, David Cameron is contradicted by Home Secretary Theresa May who cites the same coverup Cameron has claimed was a “conspiracy.”  Can a “conspirator” be credible when calling his own conspiracy a “theory?” Continue reading »

WalMart-closures

- WalMart Workers Take “Plumbing” Mystery To Labor Board (ZeroHedge, April 20, 2015):

Last week, we documented the mysterious case of WalMart’s move to shutter multiple geographically distinct locations across the US for “plumbing issues.” According to the company, five locations need extensive repairs to fix “clogs and leaks,” a situation which purportedly necessitates that the stores be closed and all workers be laid off (unless of course they can find “placement” at another WalMart location).

That sounded suspect to us and our interest was piqued once we discovered that in fact, no plumbing permits had been issued for work on any one of the shuttered stores. Our contention was that the retailer, facing pressure to retain its “low price leader” title, may be using leaky pipes as an excuse to quietly close stores as it seeks to cut costs in the face of pressure on its margins from a recent across the board wage hike.  Continue reading »

Another top notch S-400 missile defense system has been deployed to Russia’s far eastern Kamchatka Peninsula. The new generation weapons with a range of up to 400 kilometers can bring down small planes and nuclear charged ballistic missiles.

Thirty-six units of military hardware that make up one S-400 ‘Triumph’ (NATO codename SA-21 Growler) regiment were delivered to Kamchatka in the Far East from Southern Russia by sea. The Defense Ministry says it’s already been unloaded and taken to its permanent location near the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Continue reading »

Somewhat ironically, given that April 20th is Hitler’s brithday, one of Greece’s most important political trials against current and former MPs and members of neo-nazi Golden Dawn started this morning. Party leader Nikos Michaloliakos and 68 other defenders stand trial on felony charges for having established a criminal organization, having committed several racists attacks and murder and the procession of weapons. The trial takes place in a special courtroom built inside high security prison Korydallos in western Athens. Several antifascists groups and Golden Dawn supporters gathered outside the prisonand violence broke out leading to the decision, two hours after the trial began, to adjourn until May 7th 2015  for “procedural reasons.”

- CBS: Worst may not be over from Fukushima — “Effects of radiation have become much more severe” — “Enormous decline” seen in animal species — “Striking drop-off… really dramatic impacts” due to nuclear disaster (VIDEO) (ENENews, April 17, 2015):

University of South Carolina, Apr 15, 2015 (emphasis added): Dwindling bird populations in Fukushima… as several recent papers from University of South Carolina biologist Tim Mousseau and colleagues show, the avian situation there is just getting worse… They recently published a paper in the Journal of Ornithology showing results from the first three years… Many populations were found to have diminished in number as a result of the accident, with several species suffering dramatic declines… What might be most disheartening to the researchers involved, and bird-lovers in general, is how the situation is progressing in Fukushima. Despite the decline in background radiation in the area over these past four years, the deleterious effects of the accident on birds are actually increasing.

Dr. Tim Mousseau, USC biologist: “The declines have been really dramatic… now we see this really striking drop-off in numbers of birds as well as numbers of species of birds. So both the biodiversity and the abundance are showing dramatic impacts in these areas with higher radiation levels, even as the levels are declining.” Continue reading »

Justice-1

- American Justice? FBI Lab Overstated 95% Of Forensic Hair Matches (Including 32 Death Sentences)  (Liberty Blitzkrieg, April 19, 2015):

The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000.

Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project, which are assisting the government with the country’s largest post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.

The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison.

“These findings are appalling and chilling in their indictment of our criminal justice system, not only for potentially innocent defendants who have been wrongly imprisoned and even executed, but for prosecutors who have relied on fabricated and false evidence despite their intentions to faithfully enforce the law,” Blumenthal said.

– From the Washington Post article: FBI Overstated Forensic Hair Matches in Nearly All Trials efore 2000

The American justice system is broken. Completely and totally broken. This has been one of the key themes here at Liberty Blitzkrieg since inception, and I’ve come to realize that the death of the rule of law is the single most important issue facing our society at this time.

This site has focused on the increased use of selective prosecution in these United States. If you are poor, disenfranchised, or a dissident, the full force of the law will rain down on your skull like a thousand tons of bricks. We have seen this repeatedly in cases such as the South Carolina man who was fined $525 and fired from his job when he failed to pay for a $0.89 soda refill. We saw it in the case of Aaron Swartz, the child prodigy was driven to suicide by overly aggressive and ambitious feds. Finally, we saw it in the case of Barrett Brown, who was threatened with over a century in jail for essentially exposing the criminality of certain very rich and/or powerful individuals.

FYI.


- What Happens When A Russian Surface-To-Air Missile Launch Goes Horribly Wrong (ZeroHedge, April 19, 2015):

Shortly after Russia announced early last week that it would take advantage of the lifting of the Iran sanctions and proceed to deliver an unknown number of S-300 “defensive” surface-to-air missiles, the Kremlin sought to reassure Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that any deliveries of these to Iran will not threaten Israel’s security.

Judging by the following video which captures what happens when a launch of a S-300 SAM goes horribly wrong (and the immediate stunned aftermath), he may very well be right.

That, or the Russian troops were simply showcasing what will happen one day when no amount of Mario Draghi threats can push the EURUSD higher any longer.
