John Pilger: The War on Democracy

I just finished watching this documentary by John Pilger. It's an excellent film that shows the results of madmen exercising their will upon the landscapes of this fragile world. Their sociopathic, grand design to grab power and wealth without regard to mother nature, human beings, and natural laws is laden with doublespeak such as 'democracy'. The people need to stop accepting these delusional economics disguised as warfare, and start fighting back? You can clearly see what's left to the downtrodden when the upper classes have their way.

The dawn of a new era that's arrived in South America should now be the model of resistence for everyone. You can clearly see the players. It's the delusional elites verses everyone else. It is not a natural phenemenon to be poor with the vast resources surrounding everyone, just like living in terror and fear isn't.

Catherine Austin Fitts' counterargument against John Perkins

[Article] Catherine Austin Fitts' counterargument against John Perkins

I just think John Perkins limits himself to what he knows and what can verify first hand (he's said this before). Yes, there's many aspects to the fraud and corruption in our system. We can make changes individually that can have a major impact, such as ending the slave goods trade, living more sustainably (such as buying local and organic crops), etc. We can do this regardless of whether the central system is corrupt or not. Even if the financial system was not corrupted and used in economic warfare, we would still have slave goods.

India's Black Money: $1.5 trillion in Swiss Accounts

Did you know India was the wealthiest country in the world before Britian colonized India several centuries ago? Now a fascinating article on India's fleeting wealth via corruption into Swiss bank accounts:

Is India poor, who says? Ask Swiss banks

With personal account deposit bank of $1500 billion in foreign reserve which have been misappropriated, an amount 13 times larger than the country's foreign debt, one needs to rethink if India is a poor country?

DISHONEST INDUSTRIALISTS, scandalous politicians and corrupt IAS, IRS, IPS officers have deposited in foreign banks in their illegal personal accounts a sum of about $1500 billion, which have been misappropriated by them. This amount is about 13 times larger than the country’s foreign debt. With this amount 45 crore poor people can get Rs 100,000 each. This huge amount has been appropriated from the people of India by exploiting and betraying them.

Once this huge amount of black money and property comes back to India, the entire foreign debt can be repaid in 24 hours. After paying the entire foreign debt, we will have surplus amount, almost 12 times larger than the foreign debt. If this surplus amount is invested in earning interest, the amount of interest will be more than the annual budget of the Central government. So even if all the taxes are abolished, then also the Central government will be able to maintain the country very comfortably.

Some 80,000 people travel to Switzerland every year, of whom 25,000 travel very frequently. “Obviously, these people won’t be tourists. They must be travelling there for some other reason,” believes an official involved in tracking illegal money. And, clearly, he isn’t referring to the commerce ministry bureaucrats who’ve been flitting in and out of Geneva ever since the World Trade Organisation (WTO) negotiations went into a tailspin!

Just read the following details and note how these dishonest industrialists, scandalous politicians, corrupt officers, cricketers, film actors, illegal sex trade and protected wildlife operators, to name just a few, sucked this country’s wealth and prosperity. This may be the picture of deposits in Swiss banks only. What about other international banks?

Black money in Swiss banks -- Swiss Banking Association report, 2006 details bank deposits in the territory of Switzerland by nationals of following countries:

Top five

India---- $1456 billion
Russia--- $470 billion
UK------- $390 billion
Ukraine- $100 billion
China-----$ 96 billion

India with $1456 billion or $1.4 trillion has more money in Swiss banks than rest of the world combined. Public loot since 1947: Can we bring back our money? It is one of the biggest loots witnessed by mankind -- the loot of the Aam Aadmi (common man) since 1947, by his brethren occupying public office. It has been orchestrated by politicians, bureaucrats and some businessmen. The list is almost all-encompassing. No wonder, everyone in India loots with impunity and without any fear.

What is even more depressing in that this ill-gotten wealth of ours has been stashed away abroad into secret bank accounts located in some of the world’s best known tax havens. And to that extent the Indian economy has been stripped of its wealth. Ordinary Indians may not be exactly aware of how such secret accounts operate and what are the rules and regulations that go on to govern such tax havens. However, one may well be aware of ’Swiss bank accounts,’ the shorthand for murky dealings, secrecy and of course pilferage from developing countries into rich developed ones.

In fact, some finance experts and economists believe tax havens to be a conspiracy of the western world against the poor countries. By allowing the proliferation of tax havens in the twentieth century, the western world explicitly encourages the movement of scarce capital from the developing countries to the rich.

In March 2005, the Tax Justice Network (TJN) published a research finding demonstrating that $11.5 trillion of personal wealth was held offshore by rich individuals across the globe. The findings estimated that a large proportion of this wealth was managed from some 70 tax havens.

Further, augmenting these studies of TJN, Raymond Baker -- in his widely celebrated book titled ’Capitalism’s Achilles Heel: Dirty Money and How to Renew the Free Market System’ -- estimates that at least $5 trillion have been shifted out of poorer countries to the West since the mid-1970. It is further estimated by experts that one per cent of the world’s population holds more than 57 per cent of total global wealth, routing it invariably through these tax havens. How much of this is from India is anybody’s guess.

What is to be noted here is that most of the wealth of Indians parked in these tax havens is illegitimate money acquired through corrupt means. Naturally, the secrecy associated with the bank accounts in such places is central to the issue, not their low tax rates as the term ’tax havens’ suggests. Remember Bofors and how India could not trace the ultimate beneficiary of those transactions because of the secrecy associated with these bank accounts? IS THERE ANY ONE WHO WOULD SAVE INDIA ?God... No No No, even he can’t..........!!

Michel Chossudovsky: US wanted Yugoslavia broken up

Michel Chossudovsky on US objectives in Yugoslavia:

The US wanted to destabalize Yugoslavia and split it up. Yugoslavia had strong economic development, social programs, worker cooperatives, etc. It was a peaceful multiethnic country.

The bankruptcy program under the World Bank was there to trigger bankruptcy of entire areas of productivity in parts of the country. In order to pay back the IMF loans, the central government froze revenues and did not allow the transfer of funds back to states which led to succession.

Al Queda was involved in the country to provide arms and to invite in the Mujahadeen in order to break it apart.

Michel Chossudovsky: World Order, Protests, High Taxes, Government Cuts 03-11-2009

Michel Chossudovsky is a Professor of Economics at the University of Ottawa. His website is

He is interviewed by Bonnie Faulkner on KPFA's Guns and Butter show. The title of the interview is "America's Fiscal Collapse - Obama's Budget Will Impoverish America".

Summary of the interview: The administration's 2010 budget will entail the most drastic curtailment in public spending in American history, leading to social havoc and the potential impoverishment of millions of people. Defense spending and bank bailouts will consume all government revenue resulting in fiscal collapse that will lead to the privatization of the state.

Key Points:
* Obama is presenting the bailout as reinvigorating the banks which will restart credit and lending back to the public is a fraud. The bailout was a give out of money into private hands.
* To fund the large budget deficit, privatization of infrastructure and other government assets will occur, just like in Russia. Government social programs will be cut.
* Interest rates are low because it's cheap to borrow for speculative activities.
* There will be the accumulation of assets by the corrupt bailout beneficiaries at firesale prices.
* We need to prosecute those behind the criminalization of the state and the financial fraud.
* The government is forecasting protests and has combat units returning from Iraq positioned in the country under US Northern Command with the specific task and mandate to assist civilian law enforcement agencies.
* HR645 bill in Congress will establish Fema camps on military bases.
* There will be protests against the financial agenda and the war.
* Heads of western states are deciding who are war criminals when in fact they themselves are the war criminals. It's upside down.
* There's a possibility of disintegration of world trading system, wherein, the economies would close in on themselves. The US and NATO military system will try to sustain the world financial and trading apparatus under coercion. Will countries be allowed to close their borders and return to a different type of management of their national economies? That will remain to be seen.
* The war and the financial crises are intimately related.

"Again, it's tied into the financial crises because it ultimately upholds the legitimacy. The legitimacy to kill. The legitimacy to impoverish. As I said earlier. the process of impoverishing through the free market is contiguous to the process of killing through military intervention in different parts of the world. It's the same people. It's the same institutions. It's the same power brokers. The same financial institutions and those are the structures of capitalism as we know it."

The Story behind the Swine Flu: The Tamiflu connection

I find it suspicious that flu is being hyped up again, especially when there's been no deaths in the USA. This time it's called the Swine Flu.

Anyways, I find it more than coincidence that the only vaccine available for the Swine Flu is Tamiflu. Tamiflu.. Hmmm.. Wasn't it hyped up when we had that Bird Flu epidemic?

And who owns stock in Tamiflu? Paul Joseph Watson goes into it:

"Those that have a stake in the Tamiflu vaccine include top globalists and BIlderberg members like George Shultz, Lodewijk J.R. de Vink and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld."

Donald Rumsfeld was the former CEO of the company that made Aspartame.

As they say, follow the money. Read the full article here:

JFK: Speech on secret societies and conspiracy

We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covet means for expanding its sphere of influence, on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerillas by night instead of armies by day.

It is a system that has been scripted. Vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient, machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific, and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced not praised. No expenditures are questioned. No rumor is printed. No secret is revealed.

Gerald Celente: They're robbing the people blind in broad daylight!

Recent up close and personal interview with Trends Forecaster Gerald Celente, to those who are not familiar with him.

"They like to blame it on.. as we're talking about.. the reality of what the individuals did. But let's look at the group of criminals out there. And the real leveraged buyout scam artists. These are people that were buying $20 billion companies with no money down on the basis of future earnings. And that's when the credit crises hit back in 2007. When these guys couldn't pay back, they're blaming it all on the subprime problem. The next shoe to drop is gonna be the commercial real estate sector. And it's going to dwarf what we're seeing in subprime."

"Look at all the vacancies that you see all over the country in retail space. Who is going to rent these spaces? The answer is nobody. You saw all these businesses go out of business. Bear Stearns, the Meryll Lynch mob, the Lehman Boys, all these bond companies. All of these companies that went under or downsized dramatically. They left behind of millions of square feet of empty space. Who's going to rent this? NOBODY! So This is where you're going to see the collapse of 09 begin as these vacant spaces keep adding on more and more and the developers and speculators who put these deals together can't pay their notes."

"We don't have to bail them out. That's what they've put in our head. The whole game is the elites make everybody feel that there they are inferior and I have news for them. They are not too big to fail. Just in case there's any doubt over there, I can speak with full authority that their mother's not better than mine."

"Well, I don't care about Nancy Pelosi, just like I don't care about Laurel and Hardy or Abbott and Costello. Who are these people? Too big to fail? They made up this line and people swallowed it? Who cares if they go under. Look where they money from AIG went. It went to Deutsche Bank. It went to JP Morgan. It went to Goldman Sachs. Who are these people kidding? They're not talking to a 2 year old. It offends me when they insult my intelligence or they think they think they are better than I am."

"To watch grown man grovel. You know how you get your way to the top in politics? You suck your way up to the top. You know why these people take these jobs? Because they don't have to work a day in their life. They have a sleuth of slaves around them. The terminology they use these days is staff and slaves. They don't get their fingernails dirty. Can't the people see what's going on?"

Former Brigadier General Janis Karpinski: We Do Not Torture (At the Top)

As a followup to today's UAE torture video:

An indignant Former Brigadier General Janis Karpinski, who was in charge of Abu Gharib, says those convicted and jailed in the Abu Gharib torture scandal were merely obeying orders and were scapegoated.

"This is one of the most shameful aspects of these memos and the knowledge that the people at the highest level of our government had about these memos to actually sat together and wrote them and rewrote them and crafted them to meet the requirements of these techniques that they wanted to use. They were well aware, these people, Rumsfeld, Sanchez, all of them, were well aware of these policies and these memorandums while these soldiers were being accused 5 years ago. And if it was okay mister former vice president, if you are saying that this was necessary today, and it produced good intelligence, WHERE WERE YOU 5 years ago stepping up to the plate and saying hold on we can't discuss this because this is classified information? But these soldiers did not design these techniques. WHERE WERE ALL OF THOSE HEROES THEN to step up to the plate and defend these soldiers and to defend me? These were soldiers that were serving in a combat zone that were good American and remain good Americans that were so unfairly blamed. Five years, this month, to get these memos released, declassified and released, and people still trying to say that what happened at Abu Ghirab was different than what these memorandums were directing? NO! It was not."

People did hold the United States of America to a higher standard and we exemplified a hgiher standard and were the standard bearer. And all of a sudden, 9-11 happened, and there was an easy excuse, unofrtunately, to abandon all of things that we stood for. And it makes it very, very difficult for us to regain our footing as a nation of people who care.

If this becomes a politican issue, shame on the administration, shame on the Senate and House for allowing it to happen, because this needs to be.. certainly an investigation or inquiry INDEPENDANT of any political affiliation at all. And because the coalition forces in Iraq was an international coalition, there should be members from each one of those member nations sitting on that independant council representing the international perspective on these violations.

Two Suspects Waterboarded 266 Times

[Article] 2 Suspects Waterboarded 266 Times!!!

Oh the humanity! What sadistic insane persons in charge would torture a POW 100+ times?

C.I.A. interrogators used waterboarding ... 266 times on two key prisoners from Al Qaeda, far more than had been previously reported.

The C.I.A. officers used waterboarding at least 83 times in August 2002 against Abu Zubaydah, according to a 2005 Justice Department legal memorandum. Abu Zubaydah has been described as a Qaeda operative.

The 2005 memo also says that the C.I.A. used waterboarding 183 times in March 2003 against Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-described planner of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

On Monday, in response to these new details about the C.I.A. interrogation program, opposition appeared to President Obama’s assurances to the C.I.A. that there would be no criminal investigation.

**Leaked** Bank Stress Test Results!

[Article] Leaked Bank Stress Test Results

The Turner Radio Network has obtained "stress test" results for the top 19 Banks in the USA.

1) Of the top nineteen (19) banks in the nation, sixteen (16) are already technically insolvent.

2) Of the 16 banks that are already technically insolvent, not even one can withstand any disruption of cash flow at all or any further deterioration in non-paying loans.

3) If any two of the 16 insolvent banks go under, they will totally wipe out all remaining FDIC insurance funding.

4) Of the top 19 banks in the nation, the top five (5) largest banks are under capitalized so dangerously, there is serious doubt about their ability to continue as ongoing businesses.

5) Five large U.S. banks have credit exposure related to their derivatives trading that exceeds their capital, with four in particular - JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, HSBC Bank America and Citibank - taking especially large risks.

6) Bank of America`s total credit exposure to derivatives was 179 percent of its risk-based capital; Citibank`s was 278 percent; JPMorgan Chase`s, 382 percent; and HSBC America`s, 550 percent. It gets even worse: Goldman Sachs began reporting as a commercial bank, revealing an alarming total credit exposure of 1,056 percent, or more than ten times its capital!

7) Not only are there serious questions about whether or not JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs,Citibank, Wells Fargo, Sun Trust Bank, HSBC Bank USA, can continue in business, more than 1,800 regional and smaller institutions are at risk of failure despite government bailouts!

The debt crisis is much greater than the government has reported. The FDIC`s "Problem List" of troubled banks includes 252 institutions with assets of $159 billion. 1,816 banks and thrifts are at risk of failure, with total assets of $4.67 trillion, compared to 1,568 institutions, with $2.32 trillion in total assets in prior quarter.

Put bluntly, the entire US Banking System is in complete and total collapse.

Rep. Jane Harman Caught on Tape Agreeing to Lobby for AIPAC / Israel Spies

Jeremy Scahill's blog has the following story:

[Article] BOMBSHELL: Rep. Jane Harman Caught on Tape Agreeing to Lobby for Alleged AIPAC/Israel Spies?

This is a huge story: Representative Jane Harman, a hawkish, influential “Blue Dog” Democrat “was overheard on an NSA wiretap telling a suspected Israeli agent that she would lobby the Justice Department reduce espionage-related charges against two officials of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, the most powerful pro-Israel organization in Washington,” according to a report from CQ Politics:

Harman was recorded saying she would “waddle into” the AIPAC case “if you think it’ll make a difference,” according to two former senior national security officials familiar with the NSA transcript.

In exchange for Harman’s help, the sources said, the suspected Israeli agent pledged to help lobby Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., then-House minority leader, to appoint Harman chair of the Intelligence Committee after the 2006 elections, which the Democrats were heavily favored to win.

Seemingly wary of what she had just agreed to, according to an official who read the NSA transcript, Harman hung up after saying, “This conversation doesn’t exist.”

21st Century: Debt Slave

The Financial War Against Iceland: Being defeated by debt is as deadly as outright military warfare.
by Prof Michael Hudson

Here iss a good LONG (yeah bloodshot eyes over several days of reading) article on the modern slave: THE DEBT SLAVE

The author goes through the theory including military warfare vs. financial warfare. The slaves won't know what hit them if financial warfare via debt is used. Iceland is used as great example.

Also covered is the history of the relationship between creditors and debtors. Throughout the last few centuries the conditions were in favor of the debtor. It is only in the past few decades where the creditor has been slowly given a higher preference over the debtor.

I was waiting for some material from the Tea Parties worth posting and I finally found some. I want to comment on the promotion and propaganda coverage by the mainstream media. This also looks like an attempt to try to infilitrate and break up the Ron Paul Movement. Just don't believe it when Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, Neil Covuto, Rick Santelli and rest of the mainsteam media gang want to be on your team. Where were all these people a year ago?

Yes, the media had to cover this event around the country. It was just to big to ignore. So they built it up and then covered it in a nitpicking and quick to editorialize manner, similar to other protests, like the 1999 Seattle WTO protests. The media does not want to report on the cause, reasons, and ideas behind the protest because that would not advance their advertisers' and parent company's agenda. They do not want to extensively interview to protestors.

Barrett Booed at Greenville, South Carolina Tea Party
Republican Congressman Gresham Barrett was shunned and booed during his 5 minute speech to 4,000 voters who were fuming over the $700 billion bailout he voted for AND the stimulus package.

Some protesters screamed “go home” and turned their backs to him. Air horns were heard. Signs read “Bailout Barrett.”

Yep. A typical Congressman that's clueless, integrity lacking, and audacious. He forced his way into a rally after doing the opposite of what his constituents in his congressional district wanted him to do.

Some points worth noting:
1) She was not a reporter previously
2) How can it not be family viewing? The guy she interviewed is holding a baby!

Ron Paul
The Ron Paul / Campaign for Liberty Movement has the crispest message. There were a lot of Ron Paul supporters in these tea parties. There were also a lot of people that weren't. Some of that edge, succinctness, and eloquence in the message was lost because there wasn't a complete meeting of the minds and beliefs. There were also some protests that went awry due to poor planning like the dumping of one million teabags in DC:

In the first place, the big event of the day was to be the dumping of one million teabags. The Washington Post notes that this was originally supposed to happen at the Potomac River but was shifted to Lafayette Park because of issues of legality. And seriously, why anyone thought it would be legal to further pollute the Potomac is beyond me.

But! As it turns out, the alternate plan -- 1. Take a million teabags to Lafayette Park, 2. Dump them on a tarp, 3. Yell at them, 4. Clean up the teabags -- also isn't happening, because of permit issues.

Professor Muhammad Yunus: New Normalcy, Microfinance, and Grameen America

Professor Muhammad Yunus is the father of microfinance. He founded Grameen Bank in Bangaldesh which has provided microloans to the poorest people without collateral and has garnered a 98%+ loan payback rate. That's pretty good!

Grameen America: Video 1 | Video 2 | Video 3 | Video 4


Muhammand Yunus highlights/principles:
* However you live, your habits and behavior cannot take away enjoyment from another person (in reference to climate change).
* Who's creditworthy? Almost everybody!
* The new normalcy cannot be the old normalcy else the economic collapse will happen again. We need a redesign.
* Financial apartheid has been practiced on poor people by the banks by not lending to them.
* You can clearly see that in the currently financial crises that banks are not giving loans to businesses forcing them to close. The same thing has been happening to the poor in perpetuity.
* Let's fully develop a person's gift and/or talent. The poor people are poor because they do not get the opportunity to full develop themselves.
* Selfless Business is Social Business. In social business an investment is made and gotten back with no profit. Th goal of th business is to improve people's lives. Some people have a desire to make money while others have the desire to be selfless, hence the need for social business.
* All inputs and outputs must be considered in a social business
* Let's put poverty in the museum

Grameen Bank vs Goldman Sachs:
Grameen has no contracts or lawyers. Grameen takes no collateral. Grameen has a face to face relationship with the borrower. Grameen bank comes to the person to make the loan. Grameen's balance sheet is easy to understand while Goldman Sach's is complicated. (My opinion)Anything that cannot be understood by a high school graduate is bull.

[Video] Professor Muhammad Yunus on Social Business

My thoughts:
The economy is trickle up not trickle down. Whatever profits trickle up should be just that.. A trickle.

Subprime Mortgages:
Why do lenders offer schemes that make payments more difficult? I say either you qualify for a fixed loan or you don't get any loan. Why do you need to offer loans that are not fixed and 5-7% (current going rate)? This is not a spin the roulette, guess what your rate will be in the future, game.

So let me get this straight... You give a loan to less qualifed person (either lower credit score or less income) who will have a hard time paying back the loan. On top of that you attach a higher interest rate, and an adjusting/variable rate to the loan? No wonder the loan will never be paid off! That makes no sense to me. Why do lenders make loans unaffordable and unpayable? You might as well put a self-destruct button in these loans that adjust.

If you want to fund a microfinance loan, you can do so at You can also provide a loan in India (if you have an Indian rupee based bank account or debit/credit card) by visiting cannot accept dollars at this time.

Texas Sovereignty: Joined union by Treaty

Texas is the only state to join the Union via treaty rather than vote. The treaty comes up for renewal every year. If the treaty isn't renewed, Texas becomes and free and sovereign state.

A previous attempt at soveignity was met by attempted assassination when former Governer John Connally and the Hunt Brothers, with funding from the Arabs, tried to establish their own world central bank and separate currency that would provide competition to the current Federal Reserve regime.

All of this comes at a time when the G20 and the IMF is establishing a world currency, destroying Arab financial assets, hijacking countries via debt, and reporting debit/credit card transactions to the IRS. Sounds like there's something fishy going on these days at the G20 and the IMF as there are many parallels to what Jonathan May discusses in 1985.

Pirates of the Arabian: Post-mortem and the Propaganda (with Jessica Lynch)

Arrrg! Work gets in the way of blogging (fun)!

From Jeremy Scahill's

"The airwaves, newspapers and websites have been saturated with coverage of the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, the US citizen who was being held by four Somali “pirates” on a small lifeboat in the Indian Ocean, following the unsuccessful attempt by the Somalis to take control of the US-flagged vessel, the Maersk Alabama, a ship owned by a Pentagon contractor."

A contractor ship? I wonder how much they got paid and what bonus they got for the 'success'??? Who's the real pirate? We couldn't use one of our ships that we pay billions for?

" We also know that a group of “Somali elders” believed they were negotiating with the US to try to bring about a peaceful resolution to the crisis. Reports indicate that the Somali elders asked that the four Somalis be allowed to return freely to Somalia without being prosecuted in exchange for releasing Phillips. That was reportedly rejected by the US. On Sunday, the Somalis were told the negotiations were over and that the Americans “had another action.” Shortly after that, lethal force was used—with Navy SEAL snipers on board the USS Bainbridge shooting dead three of the Somali men."

I seriously doubt the Somali pirates wanted to kill the captain. They just wanted to get the hell out of there alive. Of course, what the audience wanted was a Rambo type ending.

Do you remember the Jessica Lynch rescue from the Iraqi hospital? That one had to have a hollywood script too. Nevermind that she was treated well. Nevermind that there were no guards or resistence. Nevermind that the Iraqis tried to return Jessica back to American custody. And those knife wounds or bullet holes? There weren't any.

Update: Pirates of the Arabian: Davey D Interviews Somali Rapper Knaan 04-12-2009

Here's an update to the Somali pirate story:

The captured pirate is a 16 year old. The military invention probably cost as much as what is looted by the pirates every year (~$30 million). The shooting of the pirates solved the pirate problem (sarcasm).

I am trying to find the piece of audio or video (I've heard it before somewhere) that describes the "Horn of Africa" / Egypt as the entry way to the whole continent of Africa for the purposes of exploitation of its natural resources by Empire. In the meanwhile here is Knaan..

They won't tell you the real story of the Somali Pirates.

Now that shipping rates have dropped like a rock, ship owners are looking to cash out their insurance policies with some assistance from the Somali pirates. The insurance companies like it because they sell more insurance policies. It's a win-win for everyone involved, shippers, insurance, and the Somali pirates.

The pirates started out protecting their coast from Western ships that would illegally overfish their waters and dump industrial/nuclear waste, which would then wash up on their coasts. They were the Coast Guard of their country. Then they got greedy.

John Perkins: Iceland and kicking the IMF in the shin. Lecture at University of Iceland 04-06-2009

Just got done watching all the parts. This is an amazing interview as we go through these times in realtime. Go Johnny go!

You can see the enthusiasm and the passion in the crowd. The Icelanders are going fight. Good luck IMF!

The first series of videos is the speech by John Perkins. He makes some really good points such as capitalism doesn't just have grow in terms of money. You can have growth in food, spirituality, knowledge, etc. Capitalism needs to be channeled into producing beneficial things but also keeping sustainability as one of the requirements. John also tells the people to kick the IMF (the bully) in the shin and to force the IMF into the people's terms. He tells the people that they didn't create the debt, but that they owe it and are expected to pay it back. Johns says they should refuse to pay it just like Argentina and some other Latin American countries. Once again he says to look to Latin America for a model and inspiration.

Patrick Byrne: CEO right on the ball!

Patriot first and CEO second, Patrick Byrne has been forecasting the collapse built on fraud and corruption in the financial system for many years. When was the last time you saw a CEO concerned about his country? When was the last time you saw a CEO of a public corporation get it right when it came to economic forecasts?

Patrick Byrne has been running a site called Deep Capture wherein the regulators have been 'captured' by the people that the regulators are supposed to be regulating. Phew! What a mountful! Furthermore, he talks about all the financial shenigans such as naked shorts, phantom stocks, and going down the rabbit hole deeper and deeper and finding more and more corruption!

Patrick Byrne's 'take it to the bank' forecasts

Folks, you might be buying counterfeit stock shares. The big boys may have flooded the stock market with phantom stocks which you may be buying from your stock broker! Investigations do not happen into the privately owned trading outfit which handles trillions of dollars in trades (96% of all trades) per day. It's all a secret. No one is supposed to find out. There are talks of grandfathering all the fraud. Is the fraud so large? No one knows... All this in his interview back all the way in 2007 with

What do you expect from a place where Halliburton makes its home? This article reveals the underbelly of Dubai.

Slavery is alive and well. Most revealing is people enslaving other people if given the ability to do so. Workers get their passports taken by their employers. Regular people have maids, nannies, and servants. Guess what they do with their employees passports the first chance they get?

All the water in Dubai comes from the ocean making water very expensive. Immense amounts of fossil fuel has to be burned in order to produce desalinatd water. Mismanagement of services like sewage treatment means excess sewage from a growing city gets dumped into the ocea, amongst some of the most expensive an luxurious real estate in the world.

The Revolution Will Not be Televised (2002) - Hugo Chavez's Venezuela

This is a followup to the John Perkins's Iceland interview. There is a revolution going on in Latin America. Let's delve deeper and take a look at what happened in Venezuela with Hugo Chavez and their Bolivarian Revolution, wherein, they threw out the IMF, World bank, and the foreign corporations.

You want a revolution? Watch this video and see who will be standing in your way (hint: it'll be those, both domestic and foreign, who are exploiting the country's resources). See what strategy and tactics the other side uses and how to overcome them.

Quick description of the film:
The Revolution Will Not Be Televised is a 2002 documentary about the April 2002 Venezuelan coup attempt which briefly deposed Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

A television crew from Ireland's Radio Telifís Éireann happened to be recording a documentary about Chávez during the events of April 11, 2002. Shifting focus, they followed the events as they occurred. During their filming, the crew recorded images of the events that they say contradict explanations given by Chávez opposition, the private media, the US State Department, and then White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer. The documentary says that the coup was the result of a conspiracy between various old guard and anti-Chávez factions within Venezuela and the United States.

New John Perkins Video: Iceland & IMF + Dreamland Film

John Perkins interviews on Iceland's Silfri Egils about the vicious economic empire.

For the corporatocracy, it's about controlling resources. It's about intentionally impoverishing people so as to control them and, henceforth, control the resources.

So which resource is coveted in Iceland? Energy. More specifically, cheap geothermal electricity, of which, Iceland has plenty. John Perkins believes ALCOA's aluminum smelting and processing operations have taken advantage of Iceland's energy resources at sustainability cheap prices during their financial crises, in which, the IMF has played a large role by loaning massive amount of money to Iceland.

John Perkins is telling the Icelanders to rise up and fight the encroachment by the IMF and the corporatocracy. They would be better off without the IMF. He advices Americans to do the same.

So the cannon has turned around. The corporatocracy has now been targeting Developed Western nations now that they cannot exploit the 3rd world as easily as before. Thanks to the strength and courage of Latin America and others in the developing world, the IMF has been weakened recently, and now need the trillions of dollars in capital infusion. That's what's going on at the G20. The IMF needs to capital to blackmail, force, and control nations.

Yes, the top executives at the Fortune 50 are sociopaths, but the rest of them at smaller corporations and businesses are not. And that's where the change can and must happen. We the people must put the pressure on these malleable organizations.

Let's look at Latin America as our role model. The populations there have had a revolution. They've said NO! to the IMF, the corporatocracy, and the empire by demanding economies and social structures be based on fairness, equability, and sustainability.

These demands must come from the population. It cannot happen strictly by voting in politicians because they are pressured by the corporatocracy. The people must take matters into their own hands. They must change their consumption and investment habits so as to promote fairness, equability, and sustainability.

We have the information. Now we need the courage. SEND THEM PACKING.
