Europe’s Refugee Crisis “Out Of Control”, Hungary PM Rages “This Is A German Problem, Not An EU Problem” (ZeroHedge, Sept 3, 2015):

The current refugee crisis is not an EU problem, but rather “a German problem,” according to Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban as his nation’s borders are swamped with foreigners seeking to travel on to Germany. “People in Europe are full of fear because they see that the European leaders are not able to control the situation,” he exclaimed after a meeting with EU President Schultz. He is right, of course, as we detailed here and here, but the sheer scale of the tragedy is worst than many could imagine. Orban defended his decision to erect a fence along its southern border with Serbia, saying: “we don’t do this for fun, but because it is necessary,” adding rather pointedly that his country was being “overrun” with refugees, most of whom, according to the prime minister, were not Christians.

Benjamin Netanyahu Threatens Shoot-To-Kill Crackdown on Stone-Throwers (The Ugly Truth, Sep 3, 2015):

The Forward

Israel is considering giving its security forces a freer hand to shoot at young Palestinian stone-throwers, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said on Wednesday.

Under standing orders, Israeli soldiers facing violent Palestinian protests can open fire with live bullets only in life-threatening situations. That effectively bans firing at Palestinians who flee after hurling a rock or petrol bomb.

But after meeting with several cabinet ministers and security chiefs to discuss an increase in stone-throwing in Jerusalem and on a highway in the occupied West Bank, Netanyahu suggested the rules could be hardened. Continue reading »

Twenty-six Things About the Islamic State (ISIL) that Obama Does Not Want You to Know About (Global Research, Sep 3, 2015):

This article was first published in November 2014.  

Recent developments confirm what is known and documented: Washington is behind the Islamic State (ISIS) and at the same time it is behind the moderate Al Qaeda terrorists, which the Obama administration is supporting as part of America’s campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS). And they expect us to believe that they are committed to waging a campaign against terrorists

The Islamic State (ISIS) was until 2014 called al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).

Al Nusra is an al Qaeda affiliate which has committed countless atrocities in Syria.  It is now considered by the Obama administration as the “Moderate Opposition”. 

America’s “anti-terrorist campaign’ consists in supporting a so-called “moderate” Al  Qaeda entity (Al Nusra)  with a view to going after another al Qaeda entity entitled The Islamic State, formerly designated as Al Qaeda in Iraq.  

“Al Qaeda is going after Al Qaeda”, and both wings of al Qaeda are supported covertly by US intelligence.  Continue reading »

Liberland Republic

Welcome To Liberland: The Tiny Strip Of Land In Europe Where 360,000 People Have Applied For Citizenship (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Sep 2, 2015):

If we accepted everyone, we would be larger than Iceland.

– Liberland founder, Vit Jedlicka

If there was ever a sign that people are hungry, starving actually, for freedom and an escape from the corrupt and overbearing global status quo, this is it.

Welcome to the Free Republic of Liberland, seven square kilometers of unclaimed land between Croatia and Serbia, which intends to becomes the world’s newest, and most free, sovereign state.

To prove Ron Paul’s contention that “freedom is popular,” Liberland has already received 360,000 applications for citizenship, including 600 architects.

H/t reader M.G.:

If Japan adopts the electronic currency no media will discuss (regardless most nations now use it in lieu of the US dollar), and join with the east in direct trade, leaving the dollar out, the US dollar will be down to itself (the USA) and the struggling Euro zone.

This would be a huge blow for the power of the dollar. Until Fukushima, Japan was the biggest US lender and dollar holder……..

Why is nobody covering this story?”


Sanctions could lead to Russia-Japan currency swaps (RT, Sep 3, 2015):

The Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) says the country is leaning towards direct ruble-yen currency swaps, as Western sanctions are making it difficult to conduct business using US dollar transactions.

“We’re now studying that [the effects of ruble devaluation]. We need some of the swap arrangements with the local banks. We are elaborating opportunities with Russian banks such as Gazprombank, VTB, VEB… Because of the US sanctions, we cannot use the US dollar anymore, we have to switch to other currencies,” JBIC’s senior managing director Tadashi Maeda told Sputnik news agency on Thursday on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok.

Hillary Clinton Minion Who Set Up Her Personal Email Server Will Plead The Fifth (ZeroHedge, Sep 3, 2015):

Back in early 2014, when IRS director Lois Lerner pleaded the Fifth, it became clear that not all is well with the official narrative. Fast forward to this week when another prominent democrat caught up in another email scandal has just indicated they would plead the Fifth. And no, its not Hillary Clinton, at least not yet, but her former staffer, Bryan Pagliano, who oversaw her private email server. As reported by Politico, he too plans to invoke his Fifth Amendment right not to answer incriminating questions before the House Benghazi Committee, according to a letter his lawyer sent the panel.

West Point Professor Calls For Military Strikes On Journalists Critical Of War On Terror (Anti Media, Sept , 2015):

An assistant professor from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point recently declared that professionals critical of the “War on Terror” constitute a “treasonous” opposition that should be subject to military force.

He believes the U.S. should have the right to attack people who are critical of U.S. military operations — specifically, professionals, legal scholars, journalists, and other people effectively spreading ideas that oppose war.

Professor William C. Bradford went as far as to publish a long academic paper in the National Security Law Journal that aggressively promotes suppressing dissent about military force, civilian casualties, and expanding military operations in the Middle East.

Using the excuse that victims would be “lawful targets,” Bradford argues that “law school facilities, scholars’ home offices and media outlets where they give interviews” should be targeted with military force to suppress dissent. He asserted that the war on terror should be expanded, “even if it means great destruction, innumerable enemy casualties, and civilian collateral damage.” Continue reading »

“It’s A Tipping Point” Marc Faber Warns “There Are No Safe Assets Anymore”  (ZeroHedge, Sept 2, 2015):

Markets have “reached some kind of a tipping point,” warns Marc Faber in this brief Bloomberg TV interview. Simply put, he explains, “because of modern central banking and repeated interventions with monetary policy, in other words, with QE, all around the world by central banks – there is no safe asset anymore.” The purchasing power of money is going down, and Faber “would rather focus on precious metals because they do not depend on the industrial demand as much as base metals or industrial commodities,” as it’s now “obvious that the Chinese economy is growing at nowhere near what the Ministry of Truth is publishing.”

Faber explains more… “I have to laugh when someone like you tries to lecture me what creates prosperity”

Some key exceprts… Continue reading »

Egypt gas find sparks panic in Israel about Israeli reserves (AP, Sept 1, 2015):

Egypt’s new natural gas bonanza is causing an uproar in Israel, with energy stocks plummeting and recriminations over indecisiveness and infighting that have delayed production from the country’s own gas fields.

The government is currently struggling to get parliament to approve its natural gas business plan, but observers fear Israel may need to reassess everything now that Egypt, which had been cast as both an export destination and a partner, may have found its own independent solution.

Putin Targets US Monetary System: “Aims To Eliminate US Dollar From Trade”

Something is afoot as de-dollarization escalates around the world. With CNY/RUB trading volumes up a stunning 400% year-over-year to record highs, and hot on the heels of China’s (and much of EM Asia) dumping dollar assets, Russian President Vladimir Putin has just unleashed a new bill aiming to completely eliminate the US dollar from the trade of goods.

As Putin explained last year… trade in Rubles and Yuan will weaken the dollar’s influence…

And it appears to be happening…. Continue reading »

Five Chinese navy ships are currently operating in the Bering Sea, off the coast of Alaska, the first time the U.S. military has seen such activity in the area, Pentagon officials said Wednesday. Continue reading »

Martin Armstrong Warns: The #1 Terrorist Group Is You, Domestic Citizens

Understand this now. As Jim Quinn explains, YOU are the enemy of the state. They don’t give a stuff about you. They treat you as sheep and cows to be sheared and milked. If you start questioning them, they will slaughter you. They have militarized the police forces and put you under 24 hour surveillance because they fear an uprising. There only a few hundred thousand of them and there are millions of us. A conflict is looming.
