- UK school to fingerprint children like criminals in order to monitor their diets (Natural News, Sep 29, 2014):

In another stellar example of the nanny state run amok, a public school in Britain has taken to fingerprinting students so officials there can keep an eye on what they are eating.

According to the Express & Star, a British newspaper, the Redhill School in Stourbridge is introducing a controversial (and costly) new biometric system “as part of a plan to implement a cashless system throughout the school.” Continue reading »

- Catalonia President Orders Independence Referendum On Nov. 9


- Spot The Total Logic Fail (ZeroHedge, Sep 29, 2014):

It appears the leadership in Spain has reached its panic-point. Following Catalonia’s President Artur Mas signing of a decree calling for an ultimately democratic referendum on independence for the region, Spanish Prime Minister Rajoy uttered this mind-numbing phrase:

  • CATALAN VOTE PROFOUNDLY ANTI-DEMOCRATIC, RAJOY SAYS

It appears Rajoy’s perspective on democracy and the will of the people is a little different as the situation has become serious enough that he has gone full-Juncker.

As The BBC reports,

“Catalonia wants to speak,” he said after signing on Saturday. “Wants to be heard. Wants to vote. Now is the right time and we have the right legal framework to do so.”

The referendum’s two questions Continue reading »

- “This Is What We Do” Warns 2nd Oklahoman ISIS-Supporter Arrested For Threatening To Behead Co-Worker (ZeroHedge, Sep 29, 2014):

It appears the appeal of ISIS-supporting beheadings in Oklahoma is growing. In what can only be described as an uncomfortable coincidence for the state, a 2nd Oklahoma man was arrested Friday for threatening to behead a co-worker. As The Oklahoman reports, Jacob Mugambi Muriithi, 30, who was recently fired from his job at a nursing home, threatened a female christian co-worker that he “represented ISIS and that ISIS kills Christians.” When she asked him why, he replied, “This is just what we do,” according to the affidavit.

- Hong Kong Stocks Tumble Erase 2014 Gains, Volatility Soars As Protests Freeze City: Full Summary (ZeroHedge, Sep 29, 2014):

The Hong Kong protests, which we covered over the weekend, and which took a dramatic turn for the worse overnight when thousands of students camped out and demand universal suffrage on the city streets and were in turn tear-gassed and arrested en masse by the local riot police demanding students disperse or else, and where the leader of the student protest, Joshua Wong – who had been previously arrested and was released on Sunday night – has openly called for the resignation of Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying in an interview with Hong Kong Cable TV, have done the unthinkable: they have impacted financial markets and the “wealth effect” transmission mechanism of the local billionaires.

Here as a summary of the latest market activity via Bloomberg:

  • Hang Seng Index declines 2.25% after falling as much as 2.5%, most since Feb. 4; erases YTD gains
  • MSCI Hong Kong Index drops as much as 3.2%, most since Nov. 2011
  • HSI Volatility Index surges as much as 27%, most since Aug. 2011
  • HKD weakens as much as 0.09% against USD to HK$7.7648, most since Dec. 2011 Continue reading »

The US Is Now 50% More Unequal Than Ancient Rome (And That Includes Slaves) (ZeroHedge, Sep 29, 2014):

As we previously noted, only the highest income earners have seen any gains in compensation since the crisis began around 2007 to the current ‘recovery’ tops. It is perhaps not entirely surprising then that, the total income controlled by the Top 1% is drastically above that of the slave-included times of Ancient Rome and as high as the peak in the roaring 20s. “The greatest irony is that the President is railing against inequality as one of the most important problems of the day, despite the fact that his policies are squeezing the middle class and causing the Fed – with the President’s encouragement – to engage in the radical monetary policy, which is exacerbating inequality. This simple truth cannot be repeated often enough.”

Full article here:

JACOB SCHIFF: THE MOST INFLUENTIAL MAN IN U.S. HISTORY:

A reader asks, “Mike, all roads eventually lead to the Rothschilds of Europe; but who do you think was the most powerful Jew in American history?”

Upon first thought, that almost seems like asking who the greatest baseball player of all time was. Was it Ruth? Gehrig? DiMaggio? Williams? Mays? Mantle? Bonds? (pre & post steroids) There are so many deserving candidates that it appears impossible to say with absolute certainty.

A strong case for the MVZ Award (Most Valuable Zionist) can be made for Paul Warburg, Bernard Baruch, Adolph Ochs, William Paley, Eugene Meyer, Arthur Hays Sulzberger, David Sarnoff, Jack Warner, Carl Laemmle, Henry Morganthau, George Soros, Henry Kissinger, Sumner Redstone, Michael Eisner and a few others. Just ‘Google’ each of those names and marvel at the power which the chosen ones have wielded over the last century. And although they weren’t Jews, the Rockefellers and Morgans were not lacking in political-economic muscle either. Continue reading »

- Iceland: Bankers convicted, unemployment down (Angry Bear, Sep 26, 2014):

Remember Iceland? During the high-flying early 2000s, its three main banks went berserk, paying high interest rates to international investors that accumulated deposits equal to more than 100% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and making loans equal to 980% of GDP. When the collapse came, Iceland took a route not taken by Ireland, Spain, and other EU countries: Rather than bail out the banks, the government simply let them go bankrupt. The value of the krona fell by about half, the country was embroiled in disputes with the Netherlands and the United Kingdom over paying off Dutch and British depositors, and it had to take an International Monetary Fund (IMF) loan just to stay afloat.

- Beheading of a Woman by an Oklahoma Man is a Hoax (NODISINFO, Sep 27, 2014):

Once again, the Zionists have created a distraction hoax on a grandiose scale. These arch-perpetrators would do anything conceivable to demonize Islaam in the Western public eye, therefore the concentration on beheading hoaxes aimed at Westerners. Now, the fabrications have taken a new turn with the Zionist-predicted claim of ISIS beheadings ‘coming true’ on American soil, although it is all fake. “Let us strike the Bible Belt, the Heartland,” the Zionists schemed, “with our next hoax.” This was done with the false beheading of a Oklahoma woman as well as an additional fake stabbing.

Alton Nolen, the man accused of beheading his Oklahoma co-worker Friday, is a hired crisis actor, an absolute fake, just as is the supposed victims of the acclaimed violence. He supposedly has “a Muslim tattoo on his chest.” What in the world is a Muslim tattoo? Disfiguring the body is prohibited in Islaam. Did he pick and choose the rules on his own? He’s a tattoo-bearing fanatical Muslim who no one in the world knows about, including all the Muslim people in Oklahoma.

A man who had been fired from a food processing plant in an Oklahoma City suburb beheaded a woman with a knife and was attacking another worker when he was shot and wounded by a company official, police said Friday. As AP reports, while questioning the suspect’s co-workers, investigators learned he had recently started trying to convert several employees to Islam. As the director of news and information for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City stated, “they have this ISIS thing on their minds and now this guy has brought it to America.”

- Sierra Leone announces indefinite citizen lockdown: two million people forced into endless quarantine as food prices skyrocket (Natural News, Sep 26, 2014):

High-density population areas of Sierra Leone have just been locked down in the largest pandemic quarantine in history, and it’s already causing a collapse of the food delivery infrastructure. The local government says forced isolation orders will remain in effect until Ebola is eradicated. This essentially means that millions of people are now under a state of military quarantine until they either become immune to Ebola or die from it.

“President Ernest Bai Koroma put Port Loko, Bombali, and Moyamba districts under isolation with immediate effect, allowing only people delivering essential services to enter and circulate within these areas,” reports Associated Press. [1] “The restrictions will remain in place until the chain of transmission is broken, officials said.” Continue reading »

A Look Inside The Secret Deal With Saudi Arabia That Unleashed The Syrian Bombing (ZeroHedge, Sep 25, 2014):

For those to whom the recent US campaign against Syria seems a deja vu of last summer’s “near-war” attempt to ouster its president Bashar al-Assad, which was stopped in the last minute due to some very forceful Russian intervention and the near breakout of war in the Mediterranean between US and Russian navies, it is because they are. And as a reminder, just like last year, the biggest wildcard in this, and that, direct intervention into sovereign Syrian territory, or as some would call it invasion or even war, was not the US but Saudi Arabia – recall from August of 2013 – “Meet Saudi Arabia’s Bandar bin Sultan: The Puppetmaster Behind The Syrian War.” Bin Sultan was officially let go shortly after the 2013 campaign to replace Syria’s leadership with a more “amenable” regime failed if not unofficially (see below), but Saudi ambitions over Syria remained.

That much is revealed by the WSJ today in a piece exposing the backdoor dealings that the US conducted with Saudi Arabia to get the “green light” to launch its airstrikes against ISIS, or rather, parts of Iraq and Syria. And, not surprising, it is once again Assad whose fate was the bargaining chip to get the Saudis on the US’ side, because in order to launch the incursion into Syrian sovereign territory “took months of behind-the-scenes work by the U.S. and Arab leaders, who agreed on the need to cooperate against Islamic State, but not how or when. The process gave the Saudis leverage to extract a fresh U.S. commitment to beef up training for rebels fighting Mr. Assad, whose demise the Saudis still see as a top priority.

In other words, John Kerry came, saw and promised everything he could, up to and including the missing piece of the puzzle – Syria itself on a silver platter – in order to prevent another diplomatic humiliation. Continue reading »

- Canada Warns Its Citizens Not To Take Cash To The USA (Armstrong Economics, Sep 24, 2014):

The Canadian government has had to warn its citizens not to carry cash to the USA because the USA does not presume innocence but guilt when it comes to money. Over $2.5 billion has been confiscated from Canadians traveling to the USA, funding the police who grab it.

If you are bringing cash to the land of the free, you will find that that saying really means they are FREE to seize all your money under the pretense you are engaged in drugs with no evidence or other charges.

It costs more money in legal fees to try to get it back so it is a boom business for unethical lawyers to such an extent than only one in sixth people ever try to get their money back and the cops just pocket it. That’s right. Money confiscated is usually allowed to be kept by the department who confiscated it.

This is strangely working its way into funding police and pensions. Continue reading »

- America’s Politicians Earn $608 Per Hour (ZeroHedge, Sep 23, 2014):

On the surface, earning $174,000 per year, while putting one solidly in the top 10% of all US earners, does not sound like much. This happens to be the 2014 allocated wage of America’s elected political representatives, the members of the House of Representatives. And indeed, in the grand scheme of things it isn’t much… until one considers that in the 102-day period between August 1 and November 12, this wage will be “earned” for just working a paltry 8 days, which, presuming 10 hour workdays, amounts to a whopping $608 per hour, on par with what some of America’s most prominent lawyers earn. It is also several times the hourly compensation of anesthesiologists, one of the highest-earning professions, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, at $113 an hour on average.

According to The Hill, liberal activist Ralph Nader worked out the eye-popping calculation in an angry letter he sent to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Monday. From The Hill: Continue reading »

- 50 Facts That Show How Far America Has Fallen In This Generation (The American Dream, Sep 18, 2014):

What has happened to America?  Please show these numbers to anyone that does not believe that the United States is in decline.  It is time for all of us to humble ourselves and face the reality of what has happened to our once great nation.  For those of us that love America, it is heartbreaking to watch the foundations of our society rot and decay in thousands of different ways.

The following are 50 facts that show how far America has fallen in this generation, but the truth is that this list could have been far, far longer…

#1 According to a survey that was just conducted, only 36 percent of all Americans can name the three branches of government.

#2 Only 25 percent of all Americans know how long U.S. Senators are elected for (6 years), and only 20 percent of all Americans know how many U.S. senators there are. Continue reading »

- Nowhere To Hide As Minority Report-Style Facial Recognition Technology Spreads Across America (Economic Collapse, Sep 17, 2014):

What is our society going to look like when our faces are being tracked literally everywhere that we go?  As part of the FBI’s new Next Generation Identification System, a facial recognition database known as the Interstate Photo System will have collected 52 million of our faces by the end of 2015.  But that is only a small part of the story.  According to Edward Snowden, the NSA has been using advanced facial recognition technology for years.  In addition, as you will see below, advertising companies are starting to use Minority Report-style face scanners in their billboards and many large corporations see facial recognition technology as a tool that they can use to serve their customers better.  Someday soon it may become virtually impossible to go out in public in a major U.S. city without having your face recorded.  Is that the kind of society that we want?

Russian babushka Agafia, whose family fled civilization nearly a century ago, was born in the wilderness of the deep Siberian taiga. RT visited Agafia, who is the only living person of a family of the ‘Old Believers’ denomination of the Orthodox church.

In the mid-17th century, the leader of Russia’s Orthodox church, Patriarch Nikon, introduced radical reforms in Russia. Many couldn’t accept the changes and became known as ‘Old Believers.’

To avoid religious persecution first from the Orthodox Church and then from the Soviets, many families fled to some of the most remote corners of the country. Continue reading »

Gallup released a new poll late last week showing how many (or few, as it were) Americans are ‘satisfied’ with the direction of the country. 23%. That’s it. 76% are NOT satisfied. Only 1% aren’t sure.

The chart below shows the astounding, long-term decline since 2000.

Note, this is a trend that has outlasted three Presidents and six Congresses. It’s not about a single politician, or even ALL the politicians. It’s about the system itself.

Bottom line, people are fed up. The system has failed. And people are starting to realize it. Where do you think this goes?

- The Trolling Continues: Fed Chairwoman Expresses Her Condolences To America’s Poor (ZeroHedge, Sep 18, 2014):

As we discussed earlier in the week, Janet Yellen has released a speech this morning explaining how sorry she is about ‘the poor’ and why they need to get rich. In the speech below, she stresses, “how important it is to promote asset-building, including saving for a rainy day, as protection from the ups and downs of the economy,” despite falling incomes, rising costs, and extending credit, we assume she means. The Fed Chairman has some words of encouragement for the tens of millions of Americans who live at or below the poverty level, including that threatened with extinction class, affectionately known as “the middle.” Her message? It is important to build assets, or said otherwise…  get rich and she promises to “continue to promote asset-building.”

  • *YELLEN SAYS FIGURES ON POOR AMERICANS’ ASSETS IS `SOBERING’ (indeed! but not the rich eh?)
  • *YELLEN SAYS HOUSING CRISIS LEGACY STILL HURTING POOR AMERICANS (need another bubble)
  • *YELLEN: HOUSING IMPROVING, WILL STAY KEY FOR FAMILY ASSETS (as homeownership tumbles)
  • *YELLEN SAYS AMERICANS NEED MORE DIVERSIFICATION OF ASSETS (buy stocks too)
  • *YELLEN SAYS FED WILL `CONTINUE TO PROMOTE ASSET-BUILDING’ (count on the Fed to lift prices)
  • *YELLEN: CRISIS SHOWED VULNERABILITY OF LOW-ASSET HOUSEHOLDS (poor people should save more!)

Remember, one of our favorite charts, showing that while the rich hold assets, the poor are merely drowning in ever more debt: Continue reading »

- It’s Not Just The Police – The Feds Are Also Militarizing Public Schools With Grenade Launchers, M16s & Tanks (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Sep 17, 2014):

Events last month in Ferguson, Missouri (read my detailed thoughts here) forced Americans to confront the frightening reality that many of of the nation’s police departments have been quietly, but consistently, militarizing over the past couple of decades. It’s one thing to intellectually understand that this has happened, it’s quite another to see cops deploy tanks and point sniper rifles at peacefully protesting U.S. citizens.

Just as disturbing as the scenes themselves, is the fact that this has been happening for so long under the 1033 transfer program with only muted criticism. The program was originated in the late 1990′s under the National Defense Authorization Act of 1997 (recall that the NDAA is also being used to allow for the indefinite detention of American citizens without trial), and it allows for the transfer of excess Department of Defense equipment to domestic police. In other words, it has been public policy for almost two decades to militarize the police.

With the issue squarely still in the public consciousness, it would behoove us to understand that this program is not only arming police with weapons of war. In fact, public schools are also receiving such items, including grenade launchers, M16s and MRAPs.

The Wall Street Journal reports that: Continue reading »
