For years, NATO has relied upon tough talk and promises of support for its member nations in order to reinforce an image of invincibility.
That image is supported by the implicit backing of the US military and Washington has been keen to perpetuate it in the past 48 hours by presenting the straw man argument that Moscow is set to inexplicably bomb Turkey (and if you follow geopolitics you know that that makes absolutely no sense at all) and so the West must do it what it has to in order to support its friends in Ankara in the face of “Soviet” (and we use that term on purpose because that’s how this is being pitched now by Western media) aggression.

On Sunday, France proudly announced that it had launched its first strikes against ISIS targets in Syria. Here’s The New York Times:
In France’s first airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, warplanes destroyed a training camp, President François Hollande announced on Sunday.
At a news conference in New York, where he had arrived for the United Nations General Assembly, Mr. Hollande said that the warplanes had attacked the training camp in eastern Syria after it had been identified by French air surveillance with help from the coalition of Western and Middle Eastern states conducting the air campaign against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ISIL or Daesh.

– We Now Know What Happened At 6:12 AM This Morning (ZeroHedge, Sep 10, 2015):
In summary: what we do know: a nearly 1% move up and down in the S&P due to blatan – and illegal – spoofing manipulation; what we don’t know: the identity of the spoofer.
What is certain: if the culprit is a central bank or one of its trading agents like Citadel, the CFTC will never follow up. If it is some Indian living in his parents’ basement in a London suburb, you can run but you can’t hide.
Wow! You can’t make this scam up if you wanted to.
From the article:
“the plan will allow Indians to deposit their jewelry or bars with banks and earn interest, while the banks will be free to sell the gold to jewelers, thereby boosting supply.”
And again: Only physical(!) gold (and silver) stored outside the banking system is real, everything else is an illusion.
– Is This The Start Of India’s Gold Confiscation (ZeroHedge, Sep 10, 2015):
On April 5, 1933, FDR signed Executive order 6102 which made illegal “the Hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States” in the process criminalizing the possession of monetary gold by any individual or corporation.
This was de facto gold confiscation; De jure it wasn’t, because as compensation for the relinquished gold, Americans would receive 20.67 in freshly printed US dollars for every troy ounce. Anybody who objected faced a fine of $10,000 (just under $200,000 in inflation-adjusted dollars) and up to 10 years in prison.
Once the government was confident it has confiscated enough gold, it turned around and raised the official price of a gold ounce to $35 (about $600 in today’s dollars) devaluing the US Dollar by 40% overnight at a time when currencies were still backed by hard assets. Continue reading »

– CNN Tells Americans That The Stock Market Is Not Going To Crash (Economic Collape, Aug 26 2015)
Aug 17, 2015
Follow the current rush to vaccinate pregnant mothers and see why the potential risks appear to be validated. In the past, the toxic load of adjuvants and known immunoexcitotoxicity to the unborn child was a major contradiction. What has changed from then till now? As autism rates rises to the highest in recorded history, communities are demanding answers.
Read this and weep:
This review shows that Glyphosate-based herbicides cause teratogenic, tumorigenic and hepatorenal effects. These effects could be explained by endocrine disruption and oxidative stress. Some effects were detected in the range of the recommended acceptable daily intake.
Potential toxic effects of glyphosate and its commercial formulations below regulatory limits
Authors: R. Mesnage, N. Defarge, J. Spiroux de Vendômois, G.E. Séralini
Glyphosate-based herbicides (GlyBH), including Roundup, are the most widely used pesticides worldwide. Their uses have increased exponentially since their introduction on the market. Residue levels in food or water, as well as human exposures, are escalating. We have reviewed the toxic effects of GlyBH measured below regulatory limits by evaluating the published literature and regulatory reports. We reveal a coherent body of evidence indicating that GlyBH could be toxic below the regulatory lowest observed adverse effect level for chronic toxic effects. It includes teratogenic, tumorigenic and hepatorenal effects. They could be explained by endocrine disruption and oxidative stress, causing metabolic alterations, depending on dose and exposure time. Some effects were detected in the range of the recommended acceptable daily intake. Toxic effects of commercial formulations can also be explained by GlyBH adjuvants, which have their own toxicity, but also enhance glyphosate toxicity. These challenge the assumption of safety of GlyBH at the levels at which they contaminate food and the environment, albeit these levels may fall below regulatory thresholds. Neurodevelopmental, reproductive, and trans-generational effects of GlyBH must be revisited, since a growing body of knowledge suggests the predominance of endocrine disrupting mechanisms caused by environmentally relevant levels of exposure.
– It Looks Like Novorussia Might Have Built Itself a Serious Fighting Force (Video) (Russia Insider, Aug 13, 2015):
These are fighters from the Han Battalion, which has the infamous Donbass Special Forces embedded in it.This is only a few guys and might be a complete anamoly, but it does suggest that the Novorussians are serious about training top level fighters.The words on the badge say, “Better death than dishonor”.

“When you heat or age cannabis, Dr. Courtney believes that you lose 99% of the benefit cannabis provides. In contrast, if you consume it raw, you’ll reap the full value of the plant. Plus, raw cannabis is non-psychoactive, so you won’t experience a high — an important point for those who would like to utilize the healing aspects of cannabis without feeling drugged or off-center. This means you can also consume a much higher amount of health-promoting compounds with raw cannabis juice compared to if it was smoked or extracted as an oil, according to Dr. Courtney.”
Other herbs like nettles (Urtica dioica, Urtica urens), jiaogulan dandelion, goatweed (Aegopodium podagraria)
Also if you cook your food you are killing all of the enzymes & most of the life force in it.
So if you want the most wonderful vehicle that has ever been created, the human body, to run smoothly don’t kill (cook) all of your food.
– Cannabis: The Most Important Vegetable on the Planet (Wake Up World, Aug 2, 2015):
“If cannabis were discovered in the Amazon rainforest today, people would be clambering to make as much use as they could of all of the potential benefits of the plant. Unfortunately, it carries with it a long history of being a persecuted plant.” ~ Dr. Donald Abrams, Chief of Hematology Oncology at San Francisco General Hospital Continue reading »
– $1.5 Quadrillion Time Bomb (The Real Agenda News, July 26, 2015):
When investing becomes gambling, bad endings follow. The next credit crunch could make 2008-09 look mild by comparison. Bank of International Settlements(BIS) data show around $700 trillion in global derivatives.
Along with credit default swaps and other exotic instruments, the total notional derivatives value is about $1.5 quadrillion – about 20% more than in 2008, beyond what anyone can conceive, let alone control if unexpected turmoil strikes.
The late Bob Chapman predicted it. So does Paul Craig Roberts. It could “destroy Western civilization,” he believes. Financial deregulation turned Wall Street into a casino with no rules except unrestrained making money. Catastrophic failure awaits. It’s just a matter of time. Continue reading »
– Santa Cruz County Votes to Cease Doing Business with Five TBTF Mega Banks (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 14, 2015):
This is impressive. Very, very impressive.
It appears that Ryan Coonerty, the Supervisor of the Third District of Santa Cruz County, wrote a letter back in June to the rest of the Board of Supervisors, in which he bravely pleaded the county cease business operations with five of the TBTF Wall Street Mega Banks. Why you ask? Well, because they are criminal felons. Considering Eric Holder refused to punish them (see: Cronyism Pays – Eric “Too Big to Jail” Holder Triumphantly Returns to His Prior Corporate Law Firm Job), someone has to take a stand.
Here are a few choice excerpts from the letter: Continue reading »
All the world’s a stage, and our leaders are (and have been) all Illuminati (= Rothschild and the other 12 elite families) puppets.
The Illuminati have infiltrated and taken over the Freemasons a long time ago and the ‘lower’ ranks know NOTHING about this!
And the satanic power elite have the greatest financial/economic collapse and WW3 planned for us!
World War 2 was a staged event.
The Illuminati funded and controlled all sides …
FDR, Churchill, Hitler and Stalin were all in the same club.
They were all elite puppets serving their masters.
Nothing has changed. Merkel, Obama, Cameron, Hollande and Putin (Yes, Putin!) are all elite puppets.
The Illuminati were also behind the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution and WW I.
So nothing has changed, except that this time it is World War 3.
Take a close look…
Financed by the Illuminati, i.e. Rothschild agents (just like Josef Stalin).
And yes, the Jewish bankers planned WW2 and they have funded Hitler.
Lion paw (left hand):
And here is another hand sign:
Think Merkel doing this is a coincidence?
Think again …

– Finland Echoes Germany, Wants Greece Out; Five Other Nations Back Grexit (ZeroHedge, July 11, 2015):
Initially it was just an unconfirmed report circulating in the German FAS media that the local FinMin had proposed a “temporary Grexit” option. Then it got some more traction when a ZDF journalist reported that it was much more than just speculation…
Schäuble´s idea of a “Temporary Grexit” not yet discussed at Eurogroup meeting. But paper exists and circulates. #Greece
— Stefan Leifert (@StefanLeifert) July 11, 2015
It now appears that this was not only not a rumor, but Schauble’s sentiment is contagious: moments ago Finnish broadcaster MTV reported that first Finland, and then the Eurozone’s smaller, if somewhat more solvent nations, Estonia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Slovenia and even the Netherlands, support the German position on temporarily suspending Greece’ Euro membership.

– Copper Crashes, In Danger Of Breaching 15-Year Support Level (ZeroHedge, July 6, 2015):
While the PBOC was literally everything in its power to keep the SHCOMP green (it was too late to save the Shenzhen, the Chinext or most Chinese stocks as the PBOC’s firepower was limited to just the largest companies), it forgot about that other proxy of overall Chinese health: copper which, as the chart below shows, plunged by 4% to the lowest price since February when the oil commodity crash left everyone speechless and was threatening to destroy the entire junk bond space.
But while in this centrally-planned world, in which nobody even denies anymore that all markets have become central banker playthings, fundamentals are irrelevant and few have a clue what this latest crash in copper may signify (some do, and it isn’t pretty) an even more disturbing clue for the fate of this erstwhile “market doctor” is revealed when looking at the long-term price chart. Here, as SocGen notes, copper is in danger of breaching a huge 15 year support line… after which it is free fall for a long, long time.
Copper is probing again the 15-year trend line support (5550 levels). Continue reading »
