As the live webcast from US AG Loretta Lynch indicates, moments ago the DOJ announced five global banks including Citi, J.P. Morgan, Barclays, RBS would plead guilty to criminal charges to conspiring to manipulate FX Prices, and would pay some $5.6 billion in combined penalties to resolve a long running U.S. investigation into whether traders at the banks colluded to move foreign currency rates in directions to benefit their own positions.
And yes, it’s true that Fukushima’s children aren’t dying, they are ‘perishing’ (See links down below.)
And the Japanese were NOT even given potassium iodide pills.

“Sorry, but I have it on excellent authority that it’s all lies…..
Of course the “New American” is the mouthpiece of the Right Wing, Christian Freemasons Communist Subversives called THE JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY.

– A picture of loneliness: you are looking at the last male northern white rhino (Guardian, May 12, 2015):
What is it like to look at the very last of something? To contemplate the passing of a unique wonder that will soon vanish from the face of the earth? You are seeing it. Sudan is the last male northern white rhino on the planet. If he does not mate successfully soon with one of two female northern white rhinos at Ol Pejeta conservancy, there will be no more of their kind, male or female, born anywhere. And it seems a slim chance, as Sudan is getting old at 42 and breeding efforts have so far failed. Apart from these three animals there are only two other northern white rhinos in the world, both in zoos, both female.
It seems an image of human tenderness that Sudan is lovingly guarded by armed men who stand vigilantly and caringly with him. But of course it is an image of brutality. Even at this last desperate stage in the fate of the northern white rhino, Sudan is under threat from poachers who kill rhinos and hack off their horns to sell them on the Asian medicine market – despite the fact that he has had his horn cut off to deter them.

– UK Government Quietly Rewrites Hacking Laws to Give GCHQ Immunity (Ars Technica, May 17, 2015):
The UK government has quietly passed new legislation that exempts GCHQ, police, and other intelligence officers from prosecution for hacking into computers and mobile phones.
While major or controversial legislative changes usually go through normal parliamentary process (i.e. democratic debate) before being passed into law, in this case an amendment to the Computer Misuse Act was snuck in under the radar as secondary legislation. According to Privacy International, “It appears no regulators, commissioners responsible for overseeing the intelligence agencies, the Information Commissioner’s Office, industry, NGOs or the public were notified or consulted about the proposed legislative changes… There was no public debate.” Continue reading »
– Police Abduct 10 Children From A Family In Kentucky Because Of Their “Off The Grid” Lifestyle (End OF The American Dream, May 8, 2015):
If the government does not like the way that you are raising your kids, they will come in and grab them at any time without giving any warning whatsoever. Of course this is completely and totally unlawful, but it has been happening all over America. The most recent example of this that has made national headlines is particularly egregious. Joe and Nicole Naugler of Breckinridge County, Kentucky just had their 10 children brutally ripped away from them just because the government does not approve of how they are living their lives and how they are educating their young ones.
Let’s be very clear about this – Joe and Nicole had done nothing to violate the law whatsoever. All of their kids were happy, healthy and very intelligent. But because the control freaks running things in Kentucky got wind of their “off the grid lifestyle”, they have now had all of their children unlawfully abducted from them. Continue reading »
From the article:
Just three questions here about Sarah Dahlgren’s “resignation”:
1. Why is she resigning now: is there a crackdown on just how corrupt the Goldman Sachs branch office at Liberty 33 truly is? Acutally, just kidding. Ignore this for obvious reasons.
2. What will her salary at Goldman Sachs be once she joins the 200 West firm?
3. Which Goldman partner will replace her?
– NY Fed Head Of Banking Supervision, And Person Who Handed Over Billions In AIG Profits To Goldman, Resigns (ZeroHedge, April 30, 2015):
The name Sarah Dalgren is well-known to long-term Zero Hedge readers: back in January 2010 we revealed that, just before the Great US banking system backdoor bailout by way of getting a par return on AIG CDS, back in August 2008 Goldman was willing to tear up AIG Derivative Contracts, and had in fact offered to take a haircut. It was the Fed who turned Goldman’s offer down! And the person who made the decision would become the Fed’s head of Special Investments [AIG] Management Group: Sarah Dahlgren.
We said that Dahlgren “not only did not save US taxpayers’ money, but in fact ended up costing money, when they funded the marginal difference between par (the make whole price given to all AIG counterparties after AIG was told to back off in its negotiations) and whatever discount would have been applicable to the contract tear down that had been proposed by Goldman a mere month earlier. This, more so than anything presented up to now, is the true scandal behind the New York Fed’s involvement.” Continue reading »

– Are The Baltimore Riots Being Manipulated? (Economic Collapse, April 27, 2015):
Is it possible that there are people out there that are attempting to inflame the Baltimore riots for their own twisted purposes? I don’t know if you have noticed, but there has seemed to be lots of unprotected police vehicles parked very close to where all of the protests have been happening. The police had to know that those vehicles would be prime targets if violence erupted. So where were the police while those vehicles were being smashed and set on fire? And why did the mayor of Baltimore say that authorities purposely “gave those who wished to destroy space to do that”? Yes, Freddie Gray really died. And yes, the police really did brutalize him resulting in his death, and the outpouring of anger that we are witnessing regarding this episode of police brutality is very real. But as Rahm Emanuel used to say, “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste”. In recent days we have seen a whole host of politicians, “civil rights leaders”, and opportunists flock to Baltimore like bears to a honeypot. We have also seen events unfold in a way that seems almost perfectly staged for television. Yes, the anger of the rioters in Baltimore is very real, but is that anger being manipulated and used for other purposes? Continue reading »

FYI: Amazing videos (sadly only in German) on how to treat dogs are down below.
Dogs live in the NOW, unlike humans, who often tend to constantly blame their past and everybody else for bloody everything.
Dogs just want to live and even the worst dog can be turned around with some help and start a new wonderful life, like this puppy.
– Animal Farm and the Archonic Abuse Paradigm (Zen Gardner, April 17, 2015):
This has been bothering me for some time. We have neighbors who treat their dogs horribly. They don’t beat them, but their indifference and neglect is heartrending. It’s not the norm in this country, as most dogs are free to roam most of the time and cared for in loving homes. Neglected animals are often adopted and lost pets are usually taken to the local vet who knows just about every animal and their owner in the area. Very kind and caring.
I know this for a fact as I found a lost pup and took it to her and she looked at it, recognized the markings on its tail, and excitedly said “I know where this dog lives!” She got on her phone and called them and they came and got their pup, just like that. Continue reading »
