NAZI PROPAGANDA

Mask of Zion Hacked

by crescentandcross

I just spoke with our brother Jonathon and it seems that someone–CAN’T IMAGINE WHO–following up on yesterday’s program announcement that Jonathon and MCP were under the weather decided to play games with this by hacking into the site and announcing he was dead.

Needless to say, it is indeed a sick world we are all living in these days where dirty tricks such as these have become the main weapon our enemy uses rather than fighting like real men.

Confirmation for Team Vulcan – Does London Go Boom?

NOVANEWS
WHO WILL WIN “BEST NUCLEAR EXPLOSION” AT LONDON’S 2012 OLYMPICS?

Will Mushroom Clouds Make the Best Olympics Ever?

 …by  Michael Shrimpton

Happy July 4th everybody! We do not of course celebrate it in England, as we came second in that war, but, hey, we would not dream of raining on your parade. Unlike the Germans.

I always told my intelligence students to tell it as it is. Intelligence is about speaking truth to power.

You should never trim your conclusion to make it sound more digestible or politically acceptable – that was the mistake the CIA made (no offence boys) over the links between Iraq and 9-11.

So much institutional, political and emotional capital had been invested down at Langley in trying to prove Dick Cheney and George W wrong that when the intel came in, eg on where the 9-11 pilots were trained (Salman Pak, near jolly old Baghdad), it was disregarded.

This was not done on the merits. Some folk in DDI just weren’t happy with where the reporting was taking them.

The only direction an intelligence analyst should be happy with is towards the truth. The folk in DDO of course are much more intellectually rigorous.

 

The Bush Man Speaketh

For the non-spooksthe CIA is divided into two halves – the intel pukes, aka DDI, who are the weanies (no offense!) who do the thinking and the covert ops guys, aka DDO, who do the acting.

 

As Gordon will tell you they also do thinking, it’s just that they do it standing up, whereas the DDI boys do it sitting down.

Strictly there are three halves (should that be thirds?), as CIA has an excellent technical directorate whose name seems to change every time I look, although that may just be me.

I’ve never eaten in the canteen at Langley but I’ve always assumed they have alphabet soup on the menu – Heinz, of course.

They also have a good Public Affairs department and an excellent Office of General Counsel, who keep having to fend off conspiracy theories about the CIA torturing people in the Global War on Terror.

And then there is always the captious criticism from oversight committees about allegedly ‘illegal’ renditions of captured terrorists to their own countries for interrogation by their own people in accordance with their own laws and customs.

Neither Gordon nor myself nor anybody on the team was happy with where the Intel took us on Vulcan, but we told it as it was. Like all intelligence analysi, it was not set in stone and was subject to modification in the light of fresh evidence. If your original conclusion was right however, fresh evidence tends to support it.

It’s always nice to find that somebody has come to much the same conclusion as you but entirely independently, although you have to be wary of loopback. You do the analysis…somebody passes it on without your name being attached to it, ie. claims the credit, and then someone else says ‘yes, I heard that’.

Unbeknown to either Gordon or myself an enterprising journalist went undercover inside one of the companies responsible for the security of the Olympic site and found out about a contingency plan to evacuate the whole of London.

This  is not an easy thing to do, as you will find out if you ever try to drive out of London on the Friday afternoon of a Bank Holiday weekend.

You don’t evacuate an entire city for a suicide bomber. He also came across huge orders for ‘casket bags’ – basically a large body bag, with room for up to five people, or ex-people.

It seems somebody in officialdom thought they might have to cater for up to 1,000,000 fatalities, again not your ordinary common or garden suicide bombing.

The story has gone viral on the Net and you may not be reading about it for the first time. I had never heard of the journalist or his nom de plume and so far as I know he was unaware of the lines along which Team Vulcan were thinking.

The first he heard about it seems to have been when the good folk down at TruNews in sunny Orlando (I rolled thru there in February on AMTRAK’s Silver Meteor) put my name to him live on air.

As presently advised this journalist seems to have been onto something, indeed it looks like an outstanding piece of journalism in which he can take great pride. Maybe I shall come back on this site in a few weeks’ time and revise my opinion, bit I don’t think so.

Is Fear of a Big Bang in Play? Or Are the Body Bags Just Another Olympic Contractor Scam?

That’s another danger with analysis by the way – you can lose objectivity when reporting comes in which confirms your opinion.

The fresh reporting might be wrong and your original analysis might have been wrong as well. Never be afraid to admit your mistakes.

The only reason you won’t see Gordon or myself admitting many is because we don’t make that many (and we’re humble with it, which is the nice part)!

When I talk about Team Vulcan by the way I am using the word ‘team’ in its widest sense.

We’re not talking the Green Bay Packers here. There are no team photos. We don’t even get a T-shirt. The structure is so loose it isn’t really a structure at all, which is why it works.

You’re talking a multi-disciplinary, multi-national, mostly MENSA-level team of lawyers, scientists, nuclear, intelligence and engineering specialists, senior retired military and people with a law enforcement or special forces background.

Some are working via cut-outs, bringing thousands of contacts to the party, cutting across agency and national lines to get to the chase. The DVD knew they had some serious opposition.

Since the Bad Guys, aka the DVD, play for keeps and neither Gordon or I know all the players involved (due to the use of sub-teams, compartmentalisation and cut-outs) I feel duty bound to pass on a warning which crossed my desk this morning. We nearly lost some people last week.

The new soldiers that get no paycheck or signing bonuses

It’s a bio agent, quite a clever one, with three active factors, working on the immune system, an area the DVD’s Medical Section have been working on for decades.

Symptoms reported include high temperature, severe pain on urinating and explosive diarrhoea every thirty minutes or so, followed by cardiac arrest after 72-96 hours.

I am not a doctor, but I am told there is an effective counter to it, a combination therapy including Sulfamethoxazole, recommended does 160mg twice daily.

Getting whacked by the DVD goes with the territory but this one doesn’t sound like a nice way to go. Give me a nice, clean firing squad any day. No diarrhoea, unless you’re French.

The good news is that it seems to require injection, ie you need to get the agent into the bloodstream. I tend to try and dodge people chasing me waving hypodermics anyway, especially if they’re wearing a spiked helmet or a monocle, but I shall probably run a bit faster this week.

Amerika’s Last Independence Day

NOVANEWS

2012 could well mark the last celebration of our once brave and free Republic whose firm moral bearings have slowly been eroded by a cancerous military industrial complex and the sinister emergence of a fascist corpocracy:

by Allen L Roland

Enjoy this fourth of July; watch the patriotic parades and fireworks, wave your flags and stuff yourself with hamburgers and hotdogs ~ but beware, this could well be Amerika’s last independence day. The moral pillars of our Republic have almost disintegrated and beneath the ruins lay a rapidly blooming fascist corpocracy.

Mark Twain once wrote that true patriotism, the only rational patriotism, is loyalty to the Nation ALL the time and loyalty to the Government ONLY when it deserves it. Our present corporate welfare state government does not deserve our loyalty for it has not only hijacked democracy but we have become a fascist corpocracy in the process. A fascist state seeks to organize a nation according to corporatist perspectives, values, and systems, including the political system and the economy.

The Obama administration not only represents corporate welfare you can believe in but, in the process, we have moved from a democracy toward a fascist corpocracy ~ which millions of Americans patriotically annually celebrate while still being manipulated by false threats, false promises and manufactured nightmares. President Obama’s once formidable Main Street base has now been totally replaced by Wall Street’s financial elite and an arrogant and greedy corpocracy.

No where is this greed as obvious as the great middle class swindle ~ Obamacare.

As Mike Adams writes in Natural News ~ “ Obama got the middle class to support his legislation by promising it was NOT a tax, and by promising it would LOWER health insurance costs. In reality, however, it RAISES health insurance costs, it IS a tax, and the majority of that tax burden falls squarely on the very same middle-class voters who put Obama into office under false pretenses. That’s a swindle, by any definition.”

By the year 2016, the Obamacare “penalty” tax will reach roughly $2,000 per year for a two-person household.According to Stephen Moore of the Wall Street Journal, 75% of the financial burden of Obamacare’s new taxes will fall onto Americans making less than $120,000 a year

Manufactured fear, corporate welfare and false patriotism are also among the 14 key characteristics of a fascist state. Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each ~ and America has virtually all of them;

  1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia.
  2.  Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights – Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.”
  3.  Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause – The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe.
  4. Supremacy of the Military – Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.
  5. Rampant Sexism – The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid.
  6.  Controlled Mass Media – Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and corporate executives.
  7. Obsession with National Security – Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
  8. Religion and Government are intertwined – Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion.
  9. Corporate Power is protected – The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.
  10.  Labor Power is suppressed – Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.
  11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts – Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia.
  12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment – Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism.
  13.  Rampant Cronyism and Corruption – Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability.
  14.  Fraudulent Elections – Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media.

Are our present active duty military fighting illegal occupations for our nation, a democracy, or an increasingly fascist government corpocracy?

As Michael Piazza writes in Liberating Word ~ “When war is profitable, it becomes too tempting to resist. We cloak our attitudes in terms of patriotism and supporting our troops, but the truth is, if war wasn’t so profitable our troops might not be so endangered. Is it pure coincidence that the South, which is most economically dependent on military expenditures, is also the region where support for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is the greatest? Will we ever make truly ethical choices between war and peace if war is so profitable?”

How can Amerika be the home of the brave when our cowardly and illegal droneattacks are killing thousands of innocent civilians every day – many falsely counted as “combatants”, “militants” or “terrorists” ~ while at the same time more of our troops commit suicide every year than get killed in action?

In Pakistan (an American “ally”) alone, through mid-August last year as manyas 2,956 people were killed and another 1,158 injured by U.S. drone attacks. Many were labeled “militants”, but the death toll includes at least 175children and as many as 781 verified civilians. Despite all this collateraldamage, no more than 150 “named militants” were killed. And again, these statistics are for Pakistan alone. President Obama has obviously embraced a disputed method for counting civilian casualties that did little to box him in. It in effect counts all military-age males in a strike zone as combatants, according to several administration officials ~ unless there is explicit intelligence posthumously proving them innocent.

In perhaps the most unconstitutional power grab by the Obama administration to date the constitutional rights of Freedom of Press and Freedom of speech have now been suspended under the false premise that the “human rights violations” in Syria and Iran constitute a “national emergency“.

President Obama issued an executive order declaring Syria a national emergency and outlaws reporting on terrorist rebel activities ~ once again validating the wise words of one of our founding fathers, Benjamin Franklin; “All wars are follies, very expensive, and very mischievous ones.”           4 minute Video: The case Against Moving Forward With War

And what are the moral effects of our unjust occupations and military killing machine?

It is impossible, given the paucity of current data, to determine the suicide rate among veterans with any accuracy. However, the VA estimates that a veteran dies by suicide every 80 minutesMoreover, although only 1 percent of Americans have served in the military, formerservice members represent 20 percent of suicides in the United States. For the second year (2010) in a row, more US soldiers killed themselves(468) than died in combat (462)‘If you… know the one thing that causes people to commit suicide, please let us know,’ General Peter Chiarelli toldthe Army Times, ‘because we don’t know.’ Suicide is a tragic but predictable human reaction to being asked to kill as well as watch your friends be killed –particularly when it’s for a war or occupation based on lies.” See article

There’s lots of talk about government debt, but very little talk about how much of that debt comes into being as well as the ongoing diabolical partnership we have between crooked banks and corrupt politicians ~ both here and abroad.John Perkins pulls back the curtain on how countries get in over their heads…2 minute Video

This Independence day we must face the fact that we are neither the land of the free nor the home of the brave ~ but instead have given away our precious birthright to the military/industrial complex and a fascist corpocracy.

Former US President and Nobel Laureate Jimmy Carter rightly says that “ the United States is abandoning its role as the global champion of human rights “

In that regard, I am reminded of Milton Mayer’s classic “They Thought They Were Free” (The Germans 1933 – 1945).

For German exceptionalism in the 1930’s was really not too different, in many ways, than American exceptionalism in the last decade and very likely headed for the same disastrous fate.

Mayer’s book describes the slow but sure seduction of the people as their liberties, freedoms and moral values were gradually stripped away by Hitler’s fascist government while waving the flag of national security and patriotism;

THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE FREE – Pg. 166 / 167

“ But Then It Was Too Late ~ What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security.

And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it … this separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.”

Apathy sets in with each step, as it most certainly has in America, and Mayer knowingly describes the consequences for Germany in the early 1930’s~

THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE FREE – Pg 171

“In between come all the hundreds of little steps, some of them imperceptible, each of them preparing you not to be shocked by the next. Step C is not so much worse than Step B, and, if you did not make a stand at Step B, why should you at Step C? And so on to Step D ~ and one day, too late, your principles, if you were ever sensible of them, all rush in upon you.

The burden of self-deception has grown too heavy, and some minor incident, in my case my little boy, hardly more than a baby, saying ‘Jewish swine,’ collapses it all at once, and you see that everything, everything, has changed and changed completely under your nose. The world you live in ~ your nation, your people ~ are not the world you were born in at all. The forms are all there, all untouched, all reassuring, the houses, the shops, the jobs, the mealtimes, the visits, the concerts, the cinema, the holidays.

But the spirit, which you never noticed because you made the lifelong mistake of identifying it with the forms, is changed. Now you live in a world of hate and fear, and the people who hate and fear do not even know it themselves; when everyone is transformed, no one is transformed.

Now you live in a system which rules without responsibility even to God. The system itself could not have intended this in the beginning, but in order to sustain itself it was compelled to go all the way… You have accepted things you would not have accepted five years ago, a year ago, things that your father, even in Germany, could not have imagined … Suddenly it all comes down, all at once.

You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, what you haven’t done (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we do nothing) You remember the occasions in which maybe if you had stood others would have stood too. You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. You are compromised beyond repair.”

And that is Mayer’s main point ~ it is the spirit that dramatically changes when we accept if not condone the disintegration of our national moral values through illegal wars and occupations as well as crimes against humanity intrusive full body scans and pat downs, which will soon be extended to trains, boats, schools and court such as torture, secret renditions as well as houses.

On this Independence day 2012 , let us remember the clouds of glory in our infancy and the words of Thomas Paine;

“Never had a country so many openings to happiness as this.

Her setting out in life, like the rising of a fair morning, was unclouded and promising.

Her cause was good.

Her principles just and liberal. Her temper serene and firm.

Her conduct regulated by the nicest steps, and

Everything about her wore the mark of honor.

It is not every country that can boast so fair an origin.”

And then let us truly reflect on what we have indeed become as the world’s largest supplier of arms, the supporter of inhumane dictatorships throughout the world with the blood of millions of innocent people on our hands as the result of our imperialistic war machine ~ and reflect on the words of our famous poet Carl Sandburg;

“ For we know when a country goes down and never comes back, when a society or a civilization perishes, one condition may always be found, they forgot where they came from ~ they lost sight of what brought them along”

I finish my Independence Day requiem with this four minute Bill Moyers reflection on Independence Day where Moyers reminds us that “Thomas Jefferson got it right when he wrote about “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” as the core of our human aspirations. But he lived it wrong, denying to others the rights he claimed for himself. And that’s how Jefferson came to embody the oldest and longest war of all ~ the war between the self and the truth, between what we know and how we live.” 4 minute video:

And that quite simply is Amerika’s on going current war ~ between what we choose to believe and the truth and what we know in our hearts and how we live.

NATO Tied to Muslim Slaughter at Srebrenica

NOVANEWS

Evidence Withheld from Ratco Mladic ICC Trial Blames NATO for the 1995 Balkan War Srebrenica Massacre

… by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor    … with Voikan Milosevic, Director,  European Center for Counter-Terrorism

One of the most brutal incidents in recent history is the massacre at Srebrenica in 1995 by a paramilitary group known as “the Scorpions.” 

We now have a top level witness and reams of official documents that categorically prove that it was NATO that ordered not only the Dutch “stand down” that led to the killings, but recruited, paid and controlled the Scorpions as well, those who murdered more people in one day since Stalin’s last migraine. 

It was the trial of Ratko Mladic that may be the destruction of the ICC or at least should be.  As Timothy Blanchford-Henchly points out in Serbian SOS:

“The Ratko Mladic trial at the farcical International Criminal Court – that travesty of justice and insult to international law which kidnaps people, illegally detains them and does not apply the principles of due process – has been interrupted indefinitely after the prosecution “forgot” to deliver thousands of pages of evidence to the defence.”

Ratko Mladic

It was this key evidence and this witness, now safely in Belarus, that caused the ICC to stop the trial of Ratko Mladic, the “fall guy”. The new documents show was it “set up” by the French DRM in 70 communiques we now hold.

Though, with the breakup of Yugoslavia, the region was left with scores to settle, some between Christians and Muslims, there were other forces at play also.

The vast international drug trade had been channeled for decades from the far east, through processing centers in Turkey and through Yugoslavia.

If the status quo is any indication of intent, NATO is now sitting on Kosovo, Bulgaria, Romania and much of the region that is now a center of drug trafficking, of international crime and a region increasingly fortified to threaten Russia, Syria or Iran.

This may well have been the NATO intent when organizing the formation of the Scorpions and ordering the slaughter of thousands of civilians.

SERBIAN VICTIMIZATION

The Balkans During WWII Were a Very Rough Place to be Captured

During World War II, more Serbs, by percentage, died than any other people.

They were all Christians, most killed in death camps run by Croatians and Italians,  some by Catholic priests, all under the direction of Germany.

Prior to that, Serbia had been under Ottoman control for hundreds of years, a corrupt empire that misruled not only the Balkans but the entire Middle East as well.

The worst of these propaganda pieces which you will see below has now been debunked.

This new shocking evidence reveals a hidden hand in what really happened in Srebrenica, and why.

The CIA, MI6, and DRM massacre, was operated through Serbs recruited and trained by Western intelligence agencies.

Google 

Centuries of history, from the Ottoman Empire through World War II are filled with killings, ethnic cleansings, murders of hundreds of thousands, Serbs, Greeks, other ethnicities, the Balkans were obviously a tinderbox.

The end result was a mythology, some true, much not, blaming some Serbs for acts of war crimes, blaming Croatians, Kosovans and Albanians, too. But as is so often the case, only Serbs were sought.

Considerable money was spent to present a highly propagandised view of the Balkans that allowed Serbians to be ethnically cleansed, as were Muslims and others, but only  Serbs to be blamed.

Entering the mix is the newer mythology, tying Bosnians to Hitler and his SS.  Internet websites tying Palestinians to NAZI organizations as a way of justifying victimization in Gaza and the West Bank at the hands of occupying Israeli forces helps paint a broad canvas with something to offer for everyone, everyone who survives at least.

 

         ICC COLLAPSE AT RATCO MLADIC TRIAL

Has the ICC Become the NATO Dancing Bear?

The International Criminal Court at the Hague suffered a fatal blow when it was discovered in May 2012, during the trial of Ratco Mladic that something was very wrong.

On May 16, 2012, the trial of Mladic, accused of heading a group called “the Scorpions,” who murdered up to 6000 Bosnian Muslims suddenly ended.

Judges said it was because of “prosecutorial misconduct” in “withholding vital evidence that would have favored the defense.

Documents were discovered that categorically proved the most feared mass murderers of recent years were not only not under Mladic’s control, they never heard of him.

The murderers were part of NATO.

That evidence is well beyond top secret,  and we have it…documents, testimony, evidence withheld by the ICC, the judges, the prosecutors, evidence that should lead to a new direction with new indictments. 

The problem is, as usual, the ICC targets “low hanging fruit” or takes “orders” and has yet to show the first signs of either independence or effectiveness.

The ICC feels no shame, itself being in a way, fully complicit “after the fact” in covering up the Srebrenica massacres.  Currently, the primary goal of the ICC is to seem irrelevant, understandable, I guess.

The French DRM

These documents were turned over to the government of Belarus by a Major of theFrench DRM, their “external intelligence agency.”

In an article from Pravda this week, we are given a broad picture of events in the Balkans that directly contradict much we have been told and places responsibility for the civil wars in the Balkans on Western powers.

The incident in Srebrenica is a tragedy twofold.  First of all, the 17 years spent chasing an innocent man while allowing those responsible to escape justice.

They were also allowed to build in Kosovo and Albania, through NATO, the largest drug empire, distributing Afghan heroin, in the history of the world.

 

This is how the story broke in Pravda.

Former Scorpion – Goran Stoparic

BELGRADE –  A French major, serving with their intelligence services, fled to Belarus with the evidence that war crimes committed in Srebrenica in 1995.

The documents he presented shows that the “genocide” blamed on Serbians was organized by the American, British and French secret intelligence service, and carried out by a paramilitary group known as the “Scorpions” in order for the alleged genocide to be blamed on the military and civilian officials of the Republic of Serbian (RS) – learned “Pravda”.

According to our source, the major French military intelligence DRM has evidence that the wartime commander of the VRS Main Staff, Ratko Mladic was not aware of these activities. From these documents, which are in the possession of Belarus, the French officer requested and received political asylum on the June 29, 2012 in Minsk.

The documents clearly show that Naser Oric and all the commanders of the Army of Bosnia/Herzogovenia (Muslim) in this part of eastern Bosnia were under constant control of the western intelligence services. 

Oric was the Bosnian Muslim commander in Srebrenica and was convicted by the ICC of war crimes against Serbs but found “not guilty” of broader crimes of ethnic cleansing.

Thus the “dance of death” begins, the Muslim commander in Bosnia working for western intelligence agencies, killing Serbian civilians, convicted of such by the ICC.

We all knew this but there is something far more important none of us knew, the real reason the Court at the Hague disbanded in “mid-trial” back in May.

Nasser Oric

“Paper’s submitted by the French Major (name withheld) substantiate that Oric had received 70 “operational directives” to act against Serbian civilians issued by French intelligence services, in particular, the DRM.

 Dutch “peacekeeper” battalions stationed in Srebrenica, were warned in advance by the French not to interfere.  Copies of these documents are held in Minsk also.

Soon thereafter, Serbian “Scorpion” groups descended on Srebrenica, not answerable nor under the control of Serbia or Ratco but paramilitary groups recruited, trained and paid by the CIA, MI6 and the French DRM.

Thousands were killed by these groups on orders from the western powers who submitted reports blaming the Serbian government, Ratco and blaming the Dutch peacekeepers who had actually been ordered to stand aside by NATO.”

 

OFFER OF TESTIMONY AT THE ICC

The French intelligence officer, identified only as “Major T.D.” has agreed to come to the Hague and testify to CIA, MI6 and French involvement in the planning and execution of the genocide at Srebrenica.

He is said to possess a full list of all “Scorpions” that were recruited and written statements of Scorpion unit commanders and others as to how they were recruited, paid and what commands they received from NATO.

Records now held in Belarus cover direct commands that led to the killing of 4500 Bosnian Muslims.

These are now available to the court, should the trial continue,  documents that would lead to the indictment of dozens of top NATO commanders, Dutch peacekeepers and the questioning of western diplomatic personnel and political leaders, questioning that could lead to a new round of war crime indictments.

We aren’t holding our breaths, waiting for the ICC to respond to hard evidence that their own “client states” are fully complicit in the most publicized massacre in modern history.

There was a plan that if VRS tried to prevent the massacre of young man is killed. Major knows even the name of the person who was in the immediate environment and Mladic who is supposed to do.

Bosnian Troops Retreating from Srebrenica Region

Additional evidence kept from the court that led to the suspension in proceedings showed that the majority of those killed in Srebrenica were members of the Army of Bosnia/ (Muslim) who were cut off by the VRS, Bosnian Serb Army while making their way out of the Tuzla region.

Documents indicate that NATO misreported combat casualties, in this case numbering up to 6000 as civilian victims and credited their deaths to Scorpion units when, in fact, they were killed in combat with the Bosnian Serb army. 

However, this still doesn’t mitigate the 4500 civilians killed, the Scorpions involved, but credits the command of Scorpion units to NATO command and control.

REASON FOR COMING FORWARD

“Major T.D.” states that he is coming forward with the documents he secured because he wishes the families of the victims of Srebrenica to know the full truth about who killed their loved ones and why.

T.D. served as a Lieutenant in command of a DRM unit in Bosnia at the time and has direct personal knowledge of the events reported here and has, as we had stated previously, made himself available for testimony and offers his documentation for consideration by the prosecutors at the ICC.

T.D. states very simply, ” I could not live with this burden on my conscience.

CONCLUSION

What we have are a number of iconic episodes.

  1. Serbs were demonstrated to be beasts
  2. NATO was seen to be the savior of mankind
  3. The Netherlands was blamed for standing aside during a massacre, a nation of cowards
  4. The “Scorpions” was a “sexed up”  CIA/DRM/MI6 front group that could be used to conveniently victimize potential Serbian war criminals.

In truth, the Balkan wars after the fall of communism were among the most vicious in history.  For every Kosovan killed by a Serb, a Serb was killed by a Kosovan.

In fact, Kosovo and Albania have long been the home of the most powerful criminal organizations in the world.  They are now full partners with the CIA and NATO though the current president of Kosovo is an accused war criminal himself.  In an article from Global Research:

Albright bottom fishing with Thaci

“The report, the existence of which has not been previously reported, was widely distributed among all NATO countries, according to former NATO sources interviewed by GlobalPost.

And year after year as the nascent democracy of Kosovo struggled to move forward and Thaci rose to political prominence, more detailed allegations and intelligence reports, totaling at least four more between 2000 and 2009, would name Thaci, these sources add.

The reports were widely available to U.S. and NATO intelligence officials, and at least two were readily available on the Internet. In one 36-page NATO intelligence report obtained by GlobalPost, Thaci merits a page to himself with a diagram linking him to other prominent former KLA members who are themselves linked to various criminal activities that include, extortion, murder and trafficking in drugs, stolen cars, cigarettes, weapons and women.

 A diagram from a NATO intelligence report detailing alleged links between the current prime minister of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, and other people alleged to be involved in organized crime in Kosovo.

Today, Thaci is the prime minister of Kosovo. In fact, he was just recently re-elected to his second term.

 In spite of U.S. officials knowing about the numerous and detailed allegations against Thaci and many of his former colleagues in the KLA, he has remained a valued ally of successive U.S. administrations. It is unknown which U.S. officials have seen the reports. But a NATO diplomat said it was common knowledge that Thaci is suspected of criminal activity: “Whenever you looked at him always in the briefings it was ‘suspected of organized crime.’”

 And when asked if he heard the accusations against Thaci and others over the years, Daniel Serwer, a former senior American diplomat in the Balkans and now a senior fellow at the Center for Transatlantic Relations at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, said, “Absolutely. It’s been a common allegation.”

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright publicly embraced Thaci. Former President George W. Bush hosted him in the Oval Office. Vice President Joseph Biden also welcomed him to the White House, in July. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited him in Kosovo as recently as the fall.”

 There is, in fact, a very simple answer to “why” when assessing NATO intention, actions in Central Asia, encirclement of Russia, threats against Russia, Libya, Syria, drone attacks from Pakistan to and soon “through” Africa.

One need only to look at hard evidence that “stares us in the face,” evidence buried in lies and self righteousness, evidence of genocide in the Balkans.

U.S. Favorite al-Maliki Persecuting His Enemies

NOVANEWS

By Sherwood Ross

 

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s “harassment and persecution of anyone deemed a threat to himself or his party has dramatically reduced freedom throughout Iraq,” a noted journalist reports.

What’s more, al-Maliki is presiding over a system “rife with corruption and brutality, in which political leaders use security forces and militias to repress enemies and intimidate the general population.”

So writes former Los Angeles Times foreign correspondent Ned Parker in the March/April issue of “Foreign Affairs” magazine. His is a rather grim assessment of life in “The Iraq We Left Behind” or “Welcome to the World’s Next Failed State.”

Now Edward R. Murrow Press Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Parker writes that al-Maliki, America’s favorite, “will keep striving for absolute power, using fear, intimidation, and cronyism.” And he adds that by turning a blind eye to Maliki’s encroaching authoritarianism, “U.S. officials allowed Iraq’s political culture to disintegrate.”

Whereas some Iraqi officials wonder if the next elections will be free and fair, Parker writes, “several former U.S. military officers wonder if the elections will happen at all.”

As matters stand, “The Iraqi state cannot provide basic services, including regular electricity in summer, clean water, and decent health care; meanwhile, unemployment among young men hovers close to 30 percent, making them easy recruits for criminal gangs and militant factions.”

Although the level of violence is down from the worst days of the civil war of 2006-07, Parker notes “the current pace of bombings and shootings is more than enough to leave most Iraqis on edge and deeply uncertain about their futures.”

Parker writes, “They (Iraqis) have lost any hope that the bloodshed will go away and simply live with their dread.”

The day after the last U.S. soldier left the country, Parker points out, Maliki called for the arrest of Iraq’s Sunni vice president, Tariq al-Hashimi, on charges of running death squads. The move undermined the understanding Maliki had with President Obama arrived at in Washington just days earlier “when they declared Iran a stable democracy.”

At the same time, Maliki’s son, Ahmed, in charge of his father’s personal security, has ordered the elite Baghdad Brigade “to seize houses belonging to Iraqis and foreign contractors in the Green Zone. The seizures have spread the impression that Maliki’s inner circle “is mostly interested in enriching itself.”

Those who cross Maliki may be held in the secret Camp Honor detention facility in the Green Zone where they are tortured to extract confessions, after which they are sent off to legally sanctioned prisons. Parker writes that the Red Cross found evidence of “systematic torture and gross mistreatment, including rape and electric shock to the genitals.” In addition, U.S. officials found prison security officers seeking bribes to release prisoners.

While Maliki just a few years ago was considered the best hope for bringing security and development to the war-ravaged country, Parker writes “these hopes have largely been dashed.” He points to the oil rich city of Basra, “marked by open ponds brimming with sewage, sporadic electricity, and shantytowns made from looted sheet metal and bricks.” Basra’s woes include “closed factories…miles of slums, (and) dried-out irrigation canals.”

After describing the widespread culture of graft, where “military officers and ministry officials receive kickbacks on contracts for food supplies to defense equipment,” and favorites get sweetheart contracts for building everything from a sewage line to a highway, Parker reports disenchantment is widespread. He says the local elections next year and the national elections in 2014 will test Iraqis’ leaders commitment to democracy.

“If Iraq slips into dictatorship or war, this will be the United States’ legacy in the country. But Iraq should not be written off. With outside help, it could still manage to muddle through with an elected government that is somewhat accountable and somewhat representative. Such an outcome would go a long way toward redeeming the United States’ disastrous misadventure there.”

German Weapons and Warmongering in the Middle East

NOVANEWS
German Arms Marketings, “Arms and Legs”

Dr. Seyyed Reza Mirtaher, Expert on International Security & Strategic Issues

 

The German government is accused of selling weapons and security systems to dictatorial regimes and supporting them against democracy calls of their nations, especially in the Middle East and North Africa. Selling arms to such regimes takes place despite the fact that Saudi Arabia has not been playing a peaceful role in regional developments during the past few months.

It has been suppressing the popular uprising in Bahrain, on the one hand, while playing a sinister and destructive role in the Syrian unrest, on the other hand.

Israel, another major customer of German weapons in the Middle East is still pursuing its warmongering policies in the region after being delivered very advanced German submarines. Tel Aviv continues to threaten Iran with the use of force over Tehran’s nuclear energy program and has frequently underlined the role of these submarines in any possible attack against Iran.

Germany and Saddam’s Regime The issue which cannot be easily ignored is the high-profile part played by (former West) Germany and German companies in providing Iraq’s former Baathist regime with all kinds of weaponry during its eight years of imposed war against Iran. Experts say no country ever helped Iraq with building weapons production complexes and a chemical weapons arsenal as much as Germany did.

In the meantime, Iraq imported a total of about 625 million dollars worth of military equipment from Germany between 1982 and 1986 to become the fourth biggest importer of German weaponry in the world. Of course, the figure only encompasses weaponry exports for which an official permit had been issued.

In those years, some state-run circles in Germany suspected that 170 German institutes and companies were bypassing legal bans for the transfer of arms or their technical know-how to Iraq and had launched an investigation into performance of 25 space research firms. The investigation led to incrimination of Karl Kolb and Pilot Plant companies from Darmstadt in addition to Water Engineering Trading Co. of Hamburg as being responsible for delivering chemical arms to Iraq.

However, although trial of 10 company managers in Darmstadt went on for many years, only three of them were handed suspended jail sentences. Therefore, although German state officials were trying to exonerate themselves of charges about involvement in transfer of necessary materials and technology to Iraq which was later used by that country to build chemical weapons, the pressure put on them by certain Western media and analysts made it clear beyond any doubt that German officials had helped Iraq to build chemical weapons on purpose.

This measure by German government had been taken in concert with other Western states, which also embarked on selling huge amounts of various weapons to Iraqi Baathist regime in addition to extensive intelligence which was provided to Baghdad about Iran’s activities in the warfronts. Latest Measures In the meantime, Germany has tried in recent years to keep a high-profile and effective presence in the Middle East weapons market.

In line with that policy, selling Leopard tanks to Saudi Arabia and Dolphin class submarines to Israel, as well as proposing to sell warplanes to the United Arab Emirates have been among the most important measures taken by Berlin to continue selling weapons to regional states. By increasing export and sales of weapons between 1998 and 2009, Germany has increased its global ranking in this area from the fifth to the third.

According to the German constitution, when it reflects on the country’s arms sales, the government must inform the German parliament every three months of requests for purchasing German arms by countries other than the member states of the European Union or countries which are at war with other states. According to this legal stipulation, the German government is not entitled to embark on exporting weapons without obtaining prior permission of the lawmakers.

Germany and UAE In its latest arms sales proposal, Germans have reportedly offered to sell Eurofighter planes to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In line with that proposal, Thomas de Maiziere, the German defense minister, paid a visit to UAE to discuss selling 60 Eurofighter planes to the Persian Gulf state with UAE officials. Eurofighter planes are jointly produced by major members of the European Union; that is, Germany, Britain, Spain and Italy.

Negotiations between German defense minister and UAE officials during his recent visit to Abu Dhabi were, therefore, focused on strengthening bilateral relations and cooperation especially with regard to military equipment. Net value of 60 Euroifgher jets has been estimated at about 6 billion euros. The German defense minister’s Abu Dhabi visit was part of his tour of a number of Persian Gulf littoral states. De Maiziere’s effort to sell Eurofighter jets to UAE followed France’s recent failure in its effort to convince UAE buy 60 Rafale fighter planes from Paris.

After the first Persian Gulf War in 1991, UAE decided to modernize its military forces and, in recent years, it has launched a far-fetched effort to equip its air force with long-range assault planes as well as air superiority fighter aircraft. As a result, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) reported that UAE has ranked the sixth in terms of buying arms between 2006 and 2010 with Germany being one of the four main suppliers of weapons to UAE.

Therefore, it is clear that Germans have taken another step in line with their warmongering policy in the Persian Gulf by selling Eurofighter planes to UAE. The UAE has been a strategic partner to Germany since 2004, which has also cooperated with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Meanwhile, this country has not signed many international treaties which are, one way or another, related to human rights and has been frequently chastised by the Amnesty International for violation of women’s rights and bad working conditions of foreign immigrants. Germany and Saudi Arabia After Germany announced its decision to sell 270 Leopard 2 tanks to Saudi Arabia, some German lawmakers objected to the decision.

They emphasized that before conceding to Saudi Arabia’s request for buying tanks, the German government should have raised the issue in the parliament. Just recently, the Germany daily Bild am Sonntag carried a report on Saudi Arabia’s decision to purchase 600-800 Leopard 2 tanks which were, at least, two times higher than the figure that Riyadh was already expected to buy from Germany.

Another agreement for buying 300 German tanks is expected to be signed soon. The daily also reported that despite opposition of German Chancellery, Foreign Ministry and Defense Ministry, officials from German Ministry of Economic Affairs have supported the deal. Meanwhile, according to available reports, the German Federal Security Council, whose members also include the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Defense Minister Thomas de Maiziere and Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle had indicated its agreement in principle to selling the tanks to Saudi Arabia last year. German tank makers, including Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and Rhine Metal need immediate buyers because of the urgent need to reconstruct the German army, on the one hand, and to make up for the decrease in Germany’s military budget, on the other hand.

From the viewpoint of those companies, Saudi Arabia is an ideal customer. Last year, a spokesperson for the German government refrained, when asked, to explain about this agreement. German official sources have also denied reports about possible agreement with Saudi Arabia to export 270 Leopard 2 tanks to the kingdom. Since information on exporting military equipment by Germany to any country is considered classified, it cannot be confirmed officially and any leak of information about contents of such agreement will entail cash fine or even jail sentence.

Meanwhile, after reports were released about Germany’s confidential agreement with Saudi Arabia to sell tanks, opposition parliament members mounted pressure on Chancellor Angela Merkel. They noted that the agreement was in violation of the country’s export policy with regard to military equipment. The daily Der Spiegel reported that during the past decades, former German governments had frequently deferred requests by Saudi Arabia for tanks because of their concern about security of Israel. However, it seems that Israel does not consider selling tanks to Saudi Arabia a threat to its existence anymore.

Germany and Israel Germany’s recent measure for selling the sixth Dolphin class submarine to Israel has been a clear act of warmongering which aims to fan the flames of war in the Middle East because such submarines are basically offensive vessels. Israel has been regularly and extensively threatening the Islamic Republic of Iran and from time to time, Tel Aviv has threatened that it will launch military, especially air, strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Therefore, giving Dolphin attack submarines to the Zionist regime which can deliver missiles carrying nuclear warheads, will only bolster combat and aggressive capabilities of Israel and encourage the Zionist regime to embark on further acts of aggression against regional countries, especially the Islamic Republic of Iran. In the meantime, Germany, as a member of the P5+1 group – which in addition to Germany includes the US, the UK, France, China and Russia as well – has always called for complete halt of Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy program.

At the same time, German officials are well aware that there has been no diversion in Iran’s nuclear program toward military purposes. On the other hand, Western and even Israeli experts have frequently admitted that Israel is now in possession of 200-400 nuclear warheads some of which have already been mounted on Cruise missiles carried by Dolphin submarines which is a clear threat to the security of the Middle Eastern countries.

Basically, Germany’s measure can only be considered a blatant example of double standards applied by Berlin to different issues. In addition to Germany, this approach has frequently been taken to various international issues by other Western countries as well. Dr. Seyyed Reza Mirtaher

The Final Greek Tragedy: Theft of a Nation by Bankers

NOVANEWS

The Real Truth about Greece and the EU 

by Mike Stathis

In order to understand the progression of the economic and political chaos in Greece, one must review several key events from recent years, all while reading between the lines from official statements made by the global banking syndicate and their puppet politicians in both the EU and U.S.

First, I begin with my analysis of statements made by certain members of this crime syndicate after the April 2009 G-20 Summit. As you will recall, this meeting took place within weeks of the global equities markets having reached multi-year lows. Politicians and establishment economists from around the globe met to discuss their “solutions.”

At the time, consensus forecasts had concluded that the global economy would record a decline in growth; the first time in 60 years.

“At first glance, their [IMF] recent official forecast for a 1.3% decline in the global economy for 2009 seems to put to rest any thoughts that they have downplayed (either by incompetence or intentionally) the reality of the economic meltdown.

Despite the fact that this would be the first time in over 60 years since the global economy shrunk, their forecasts are overly optimistic and will be revised downward several times over. You can bet on it.

As you might recall, just four months ago the IMF predicted a 0.5% growth for the global economy in 2009. That represents a huge miss. Despite their forecast of a 2.8% negative GDP growth for the United States in 2009, other nations have it much worse, with Japan’s economy expected to shrink by 6.2%. 

The IMF continues with its forecast for positive growth for the global economy in 2010 of 1.9%. This is very doubtful. In fact, I expect the global economy to continue negative growth next year. However, keep in mind this will depend on how much the central banks flood the globe with currency and how many fiscal stimuli are passed.

But consider this. If you’re handing out huge amounts of money that you don’t have in order to boost economic activity, can you really claim that you’ve created a net amount of economic activity?

Given the massive amount of funds already committed, I would say definitely not. Regardless, you should expect much more money to be passed out. This could create a global bubble down the road. The effects would be even more devastating than those seen today. At the very least, Washington is mortgaging away the future of America.

What the IMF did not discuss was the likelihood of having to bail out Mexico, much of Eastern Europe, possibly the UK and a several other nations.

During the G-20 meeting, Obama discussed the global commitment of bailing out developing nations. You might also recall the G-20 meetings called for a ‘global New Deal,’ as well as over $1.1 trillion to the IMF in aid for the global meltdown.

While there were no definitive signs of a victory for a continuation of Washington’s pseudo-free market policies, there appeared to be a continued commitment for avoidance of protectionism.

‘Still, the meeting eased fears that leaders would repeat the failure of a similar gathering in 1933, which was followed by a surge of protectionism that prolonged the Great Depression. The leaders also agreed to ‘name and shame’ countries that erected trade barriers, intended to resist growing protectionist sentiment.’

This is an example of how the media is trying to build support from U.S. citizens for protectionism. The fact is that protectionism actually made the depression less severe.

Despite the push by many nations (especially Europe) for global banking regulation, the U.S. was able to weasel out of this.

What they aren’t telling you is that much of the ambivalence from Germany and France from the G-20 meeting was [based on] their unwillingness to be stuck bailing out Europe. This is something that could threaten the European Union down the road. If not, there are many other things that will.

I expect the tensions between European leaders and the White House to grow. Germany has no intention of being stuck bailing out Eastern Europe.

It is likely that America will end up being on the hook for the majority of the bailout funds needed for Eastern Europe via the IMF. As for the fate of the UK and Japan, things are looking really ugly.

In the end, I feel the long-term fate of the European Union will be threatened; not so much for economic reasons as for the continued destruction of each nation’s sovereignty.

Already, common laws of the union are causing social disruptions based upon cultural differences. It is perhaps for this reason that the union has aggressively opened its doors to nations outside of the union as a way to dilute the cultural and racial identities of each nation. But we have already seen a glimpse of what this offers—mass riots, arson and destruction. No doubt, the tensions will worsen due to the severity of the global meltdown.

One thing is for certain. In order for the union to succeed, all nations must be provided with a somewhat equivalent infrastructural base. Otherwise, the disparities in commerce will present problems.

Let me give you a simple example of this. Arguably, Germany has the most modernized road system in Europe. This enables an efficient means of transportation for a vibrant consumer and business activity. 

In contrast, Greece’s transportation infrastructure is horrendous. As a result, the cost structure for goods and many services is higher by necessity. This disparity leads to a relative difference in the strength of the Euro depending on which nation you are in. But there are other economic uncertainties, such as who will bail out troubled nations.

Given the economic, social and sovereignty issues, it is possible that by 2020, Germany will pull out of the union, most likely for economic reasons alone. If that happens, you can bet France will soon follow.”

A year later, I discussed more dire projections for the EU based on my projections of further deterioration of the unified economy as well as the intended mechanism of fiscal consolidation, as expressed by the Jewish bankers and puppet politicians in charge of the EU.

In this analysis, I pointed out that even the IMF admitted that upon entry into the European Monetary Union (EMU) the South East Area (SEA) European member states began to record a current account deficit, reflection the various economic and infrastructural imbalances within the Eurozone.

“These demographic trends can only be altered by forces of nature. But governments can AND WILL alter retirement and healthcare benefits.

Thus, the demographic trends faced by the EU are likely to be met with some combination of significantly higher taxes, fewer benefits, and a significant increase in labor participation rates, especially in the elderly population.

You should expect to see minimum retirement age raised in most EU nations several times over the next few decades. This is process has already commenced. While the U.S. also faces a similar situation, it is not as severe.  

The effect of this demographic shift, along with the effects of the global economic crisis will be present for several decades. These trends will adversely affect consumption, per capita GDP and living standards.

According to official data from a variety of sources, the current accounts in seven nations within Southern Europe (i.e. Southern Euro Area, SEA) have imploded since the mid-1990s. For instance, in 1994, these nations maintained an overall average current account balance (which can be likened to an annual trade surplus) to an average deficit of 10% in 2008.1

When the current accounts of Northern Europe (the Northern Euro Area, NEA) are examined, eight nations have accumulated current account surpluses over the same period.2

What can explain this rapid demise in SEA economies?

Numerous sources including (even) the IMF and other economic organizations have acknowledged that the decline in the current accounts of SEA countries coincided with their joining the European Monetary Union (EMU) and continued after their subsequent adoption of the euro. 

Over the 1994–2008 period, the deterioration in current accounts coincided with a large decrease in private saving rates and, to a lesser extent, with a rise in investment rates, while public saving actually improved.

Yet, according to the IMF, it was the creation of the EMU and, especially, the introduction of the euro, that drove the declines in current accounts by allowing countries to maintain their investment levels above what could be financed from lower domestic saving.

According to the IMF…

‘Hence, economic integration improved access to the international pool of saving, but it did not necessarily make it optimal or sustainable.

Even in countries in which an increase in investment played a more important role in the current account deterioration (Spain and Slovenia), most of the increase took place in less productive nontradables sectors, such as construction.

Although the current global financial crisis has forced some reduction in current account deficits, they are expected to remain high in the medium run as a result of the countries’ low productivity and weak competitiveness.’

Thus, the unionization of Europe has largely been responsible for the current economic problems seen in Greece, Italy, Spain, and other nations. It was doomed from the beginning.”

1 The SEA consists of Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, and Spain. SEA-4 denotes the four largest SEA countries: Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain; the latter three joined the EMU in 1994 and the euro area in 1999, and Greece joined the euro area in 2001. The remaining SEA countries, SEA-3 (Cyprus, Malta, and Slovenia) joined the EMU in 2004 and the euro area in 2007–08. Not included in this analysis is Slovakia, which joined the EMU in 2009.

2 The NEA comprises Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands.

Source: AVA Investment Analytics, July 2010 Intelligent Investor. July 5, 2010.

 

In 2011, I followed up on my previous assessment of the IMF’s handling of the Greek economy. First, I will summarize that assessment.

Thereafter, I present an updated analysis which should be taken to serve as a general blueprint for what lay ahead for Spain, Portugal, Italy and perhaps even France.

The graphs on this page are especially disturbing. The first chart illustrates an estimate of Greek public debt assuming the recommended level of asset sales (the baseline) versus a lower level.

As you can see, there is not much difference.

If these estimates are accurate, they imply that Greece will gradually be forced to sell off even more of its assets down the road after they have allowed the vultures to enter.

The second chart shows three scenarios for debt obligations. As you can see, the red dotted line shows that Greek sovereign debt is expected to soar if economic growth is permanently lower. This is precisely the fate faced by Greece. Thus, it serves no purpose to sell off vital assets in order to satisfy bankers.

I am certain that if Greece goes forward with plans for further assistance by the IMF and EU, it will be in much worse shape in coming years. Furthermore, if Greeks allow their nation to be auctioned off to bankers, eventually, Greece will be run by the private sector. As a result, Greeks will be taxed and fees will be levied for services previously provided based on local and federal taxes. The entire nation will be rigged with electronically monitored parking meters, the roads will have tolls throughout, property taxes will soar, etc. 

As I have discussed in the past, the only solution for Greece is to defect from the European Monetary Union, and later to defect from the European Union. This is also the best choice for Italy, Spain and Portugal.”

Finally, from the May 2012 Intelligent Investor…

“The so-called bitter medicine otherwise known as “austerity” being forced on Europe by bankers and their puppet politicians continues to harm the economy.

Austerity measures have not been balanced but have been specifically structured as a pro-cyclical fiscal policy, which is designed to tighten the budget.

The theory behind this measure is to create enhanced competition through an internal devaluation of the economy through a reduction in unit labor costs such that export trade becomes more competitive. 

Now in its fifth year of recession, the unemployment rate remains near record-highs, unit labor costs remain among the highest in the euro zone, while Greece’s Real Effective Exchange Rate remains higher than prior to its recession in 2006.

Therefore, the internal devaluation sought by this pro-cyclical strategy has not worked.

While we are opposed to the approach being taken by the U.S. which has flooded the global with dollars, because Europe has not countered with the same strategy, this has accentuated its economic problems.

After nearly five years of a severe recession, even the most optimistic projections of GDP recovery to pre-recession levels are not encouraging (around 12 years) when compared to other nations that were crushed during previous financial crises.

For instance, Argentina’s GDP recovered in three years. However, Argentina defaulted on its debt and was thus not held to the severe austerity measures that would otherwise be imposed on it by the IMF.

By the spring of 2010, European leaders finally realized that several euro zone nations would need a great deal of financial assistance. In response, they created the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) to provide support to euro area member states in financial difficulty. This facility was first utilized by Ireland in December 2010 and Portugal in May 2011.

However, the Maastricht treaty prevents fiscal transfers across euro area nations. This has made it difficult to use taxpayer money from some countries to fund nations in most need of financial assistance.

In response to escalating problems in Europe, the EFSF’s lending capacity was nearly doubled to €440 billion in spring 2011.

When the problems became much worse in Spain and Italy, its mandate was increased in summer 2011 to allow for precautionary lending and additional flexibility.

Since the IMF’s First Review of the Stand-By Arrangement in September 2010, the organization (which is staffed with thousands of analysts and economists who are paid very handsomely) has consistently underestimated the severity in Greece’s economic contraction. In total the miss in GDP by the IMF since this time has been greater than 7%.

 

This is a huge miss, especially considering the short time span of the estimates, the access of the IMF to official data, and the huge number of IMF staff members dedicated to this nation.  

There is absolutely no way even the smallest economic organization staffed with competent individuals could makesuch a huge miss. Thus, either the IMF is incompetent or they have intentionally understated their estimates. 

I feel the optimism in projections from the IMF has been intentional so as to inspire their privatization plan, which will turn over valuable public assets (70% of which are real estate) in Greece to the private markets.

In fact, it has been reported by highly reputable sources that more much less optimistic projections were not being made public.

In response to its own incompetence (or even complicit fraud), the IMF continues to ratchet down on Greece further, insisting that more austerity is needed.

Although revenue increases are expected to continue through 2012, the IMF has planned for drastic spending cuts during the 2013-2014 period, promising an even more severe economic recession.

Even if I am wrong in my assumption pertaining to the intentional reporting of excessively optimistic economic estimates for the Greek economy, at the very least, IMF head Lagarde should be forced to resign and a complete overhaul of this taxpayer-funded organization should commence.   

In the wildest case of optimism possible, even if Greece were to begin its recovery later this year, since its pre-recession peak, it will have lost 15.8% of GDP, making it one of the most severe losses of economic output seen from all financial crises in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Of course, Greece is not going to begin a recovery in 2012, 2013, or 2014. Thus, by the time the IMF is finished with its destruction, Greece could set a new record in terms of economic destruction. We estimate that it will take Greece at least 18 years to reach its pre-recession GDP. 

Greece has already suffered a huge toll in social and human costs as a result of the economic siege by the international crime syndicate. Access to healthcare has declined; there have been numerous suicides and violent crimes have soared.

Virtually every economic and financial measure of Greece’s economy remain in a downtrend, from the stock market, retail sales, and current account balance, to GDP, PMI, bank deposits and new car registrations; many continuing to make new lows.

The notable exceptions are the new highs being made in Greece’s interest burden on its debt, spreads with euro bonds, its unemployment rate (now at nearly 22%), and unit labor costs. Even the IMF’s optimistic la-la land forecasts place the Greek unemployment rate at 17% by 2016.

During the 2010-2011 period, Greece cut spending by a whopping 8.7% of GDP. In 2012, the IMF has approved spending cuts of 2.8% of GDP, most of which are in the form of revenue increases (as opposed to spending cuts). Much of this revenue boost is expected to come from a clampdown on tax collection from wealthy citizens, while the rest will come from privatization.

In addition, the IMF has “convinced” Greek officials to slash 150,000 government jobs by 2015 and weaken collective bargaining. The minimum wage was recently cut by 20% for workers 25 and over, and by 32% for those under 25.

The 2013-2014 period promises to cause much more pain for Greeks, as the IMF has pushed Greek officials towards spending cuts, specifically from pensions, social transfers and defense.

Part of the blueprint of IMF banking syndicate is to privatize a great deal of Greece’s public assets, enabling the vultures to squeeze as much money from Greek citizens as possible.

In the meantime, Greek property owners are now required to pay a special emergency property tax which has been linked to their electric bill. If this tax is not paid by the due date, it’s lights out.

Projections by the IMF rely heavily on the private sector to extract large sums of money from Greeks (€35 billion over the next two years, or 15.4% of GDP) in order to “improve productivity.” But the ambitious dreams of theIMF’s plans of privatization will most likely not measure up as expected. 

The IMF’s approach to austerity in Greece represents an obvious case of economic destruction. Moreover, as the situation in Greece worsens, it has opened the door for more of the IMF’s banker colleagues to steal Greece’s most treasured public assets at pennies on the dollar.

Careful observers are witnessing the mechanism by which the IMF always functions. To those of you who are reading this, we hope you note this for future reference because the destruction caused by the IMF certainly is not going to end with Greece. 

It is indeed ironic that regulators advocate reasons for unified monetary and economic policies through greater control that could arise from a global body when it suits their interests. Yet, when it comes to practicing what they preach at a time when it could prevent the economic destruction and theft of entire nations, they have stalled. 

Rather than focus on addressing longer-term issues, the bankers have continued to cut government spending, wages, and many other things all of which have adversely affected the economy. Greece serves as a perfect example of banker-led destruction at its best.

The next series of charts show Greek GDP and unemployment rate projections by the IMF for each of its five reviews. As you can see, in every case, the IMF has consistently had to lower its GDP and raise its unemployment estimates in subsequent reviews.

The first chart shows the IMF’s Fifth Review of Greece, published in December 2011. It also shows the results of all previous reviews. With each review, GDP estimates have been revised downward.

Between the First and Fifth Reviews, the downward revision in Greek GDP has been huge despite the fact that the time between these two reviews has been less than two years. We see a similar situation with Greek unemployment rate projections.

Again, the IMF has made extraordinarily optimistic projections and has only made modest revisions with each review in order to lure Greek officials into accepting their privatization plan. In my view, this represents a form of economic extortion.

Even this latest series of estimates made by the IMF are optimistic and will be reduced in coming weeks. The fact that nearly all of Europe is now in recession adds to this expectation.

In the analysis of Greece’s economic health it is also important to consider the interest burden on its sovereign debt. Greece has the highest interest burden of all nations in Europe, at nearly 7% (although recent data show Spain with a slightly higher rate). In fact, there are only a few nations in the world with a higher interest burden on its sovereign debt. 

Clearly, the IMF has made Greece’s recession more severe. And because the worsened state of the Greek economy has led to a higher interest burden, should not the IMF step in to subsidize the additional costs with “no strings attached” since it has been the IMF that has led to at least a good portion of these additional refinancing costs since 2010

The media has teamed up with establishment economists to paint a very inaccurate picture of Greece; one that places sole blame for its economic problems on Greek officials and the Greek people.

This strategy is similar to the one used by activist groups who shun cigarette smokers as if they are evil people when the fact is they are merely innocent victims of tobacco companies which sell highly addictive products.

While it is certainly true that Greece has a very high level of tax evasion, is not as competitive as nor is as open to trade most E.U. member states, the fact is that this system of commerce has served Greece well for centuries.

The fact is that Wall Street banks were largely responsible for the current problems in Greece through fraudulent refinancing deals and the flood of consumer credit that began when the EMU formed.

Similar to many other E.U. members, Greece was coaxed into joining the E.U. without being told it would need to relinquish its sovereignty.

As has happened with every other E.U. member state, the adverse effects of this phase of globalization orchestrated by the globalization crime syndicate continues to take its toll on the Greek people.   

Currently, much of the fate of Greece’s economy and future rests on the upcoming elections in mid-June. If the pro-bailout New Democracy Party wins, Greece will be finished as the banking criminals will receive continued harsh austerity and theft of Greece’s public assets”

Again, I would advise the Greek people to remove all current politicians from office by any means necessary if they want to preserve their nation.  Otherwise, as I have stated in the past, this will be the end of Greece. After the nation’s most valuable assets are sold, the Greek people will face an indefinite period of economic extortion and social reengineering at the hands of the Jewish bankers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The one thing Mr. Duke gets wrong in the following video is his statement that the banks are controlled by “Zionist Jews.” The banks are controlled by Jews, most but not all of which are Zionists.

It’s always safer to blame ALL criminality purpetrated by the Jewish mafia on Zionism because this approach directs the issue more at politics.

Time for the Second American Revolution

NOVANEWS

by Sartre Batr

For well over the last decade BATR has argued that the Republic is dead. Now that the Supreme Court has rendered their decision on Obamacare, there can be no doubt that the funeral for a nation, born out of a revolution for liberty, is over. The country, buried in the ashes of totalitarian despotism, is now history.

The plurality of citizens naively accepts that the national government has legitimacy. Such a claim is erroneous. What more proof does one need that slavery is the official status for the American public. The implication of affirming the health insurance mandate sets the precedent for and escalates an unlimited federal tyranny.

The twisted interpretation that a forced and binding purchase of medical coverage is justified because the government can tax its citizens is demonic in its inception. Coercion as a mean for compliance is like whipping your indentured servant for the privilege of serving the master.

By opening the flood-gate of unlimited federal taxation authority to compel behavior, guarantees punitive submission for a limitless concoction of social engineering. It is a short leap to require ID chip implants and compulsory designated conduct.

The hijacking of health care by a mandatory federal oppression pushes citizens to renounce their fidelity to a constitutional framework, already abandoned by the political power elite. Constrains and separation of the “Federalism” system of shared authority, is now eliminated. The central government is all-supreme in the gulag version of benevolent dependency.

The Supreme Court is a pitiful tool of the executive autocrat that wheels administrative regulation like a crazed beast. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. is a disgrace. Whether his decision reflects intimidation or legacy hubris, the net effect is that he shoveled dirt on the tombstone of the constitution.

The seemingly limit on the commerce clause is circumvented by validating that taxing obligated conduct is legal. This extreme viewpoint condones any dictate by government fiat that Congress conspires to force people to obey. Such a conclusion abdicates the essence of constitutional protections.

Natural law is not arbitrary and subject to the whims of radical statists. Ignoring fundamental human rights is the definitive abuse against humanity. The federal government is making the nanny state into a chamber of horror.

Immutable principles that protect individuals from compulsory demands that violate free choice always are reprehensible. However, the latest rebuke to the sovereign dignity of citizens – poisons the water for any thirsty seeker of liberty and justice.

The consequences of the added financial costs from the Obamacare administration are frightening. The devil is in the details, never was more appropriate. Driving the economy off a cliff is a designed strategy of the collectivist criminals. The unholy alliance of big pharma, health insurance corporatists and dedicated Marxists want the public to be docile serfs in a land of slaves.

Add this dire result of the horrendous increase in taxes from the “Taxmageddon” catastrophe come the end of this year and you have a meltdown formula for a second depression. The Tea Party advocates are correct, “Taxed Enough Already” gains new meaning with the legalization of Obamacare.

Conversely, how can the legislation be legal when a Supreme Court that is determined to worship at the altar of an absolute tyranny violates the rule of law itself?

Incrementalism is the gradual assimilation of society into a different matrix of acceptability. This judicial tragedy is a rapid surge to the system. The body politic is under assault by a deadly virus of biblical dimensions. The core reasons for the War of American Independence seem trite when compared to the level of perdition experienced under the succession of recent presidents.

The bipartisan despotism of both Bush presidents, Clinton and now Obama only accelerate acquiescence to a virtual dictatorship. In order to understand the nature of the dilemma, appreciate the message in The Meaning of Independence Day.

The justification for a Second American Revolution should be self-evident. However, there are few real Americans left, who comprehend the unique heritage of this nation. A spontaneous uprising to overthrow the political outlaws is unlikely. With that admission, the moral imperative still requires a personal commitment to oppose the corrupt regime that proceeds in enslaving society.

The tipping point is upon us. The chains you wear are shackles you lock each day; you observe, obey or consent to unlawful government. You have the power to refuse compliance. Confront the consequences or suffer the indignation of a life of servitude.

Celebrate this July 4th with a renewed dedication that the future of American lies in the moral authority of civil disobedience.

Hate Crimes Againts U.S. Muslims Are On The Rise, Magazine Says

NOVANEWS

By Sherwood Ross

 

Muslims may make up fewer than one percent of the U.S. population but they were nearly 13 percent of victims of religious-based hate crimes in 2010, “The Nation” magazine reports (July 2nd).

“These crimes include intimidation, burglary, arson, vandalism, and aggravated assault,” writes author Laila Lalami, a professor at the University of California, Riverside. What’s more, “they target not just Muslims but also people who are mistaken for Muslims—Sikh men, for instance.”

“It’s fair to say that we have in America today two systems of citizenship: one for Muslims and one for non-Muslims,” Lalami says. “Muslim citizens live under a cloud of suspicion, no matter what they do, and no matter what they say.”

Anti-Muslim attitudes have reached deep into the workplace. Muslims make up only about 1 percent of the U.S. population but account for more than 20 percent of religion-based filings with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Moustafa Bayoumi, a professor at Brooklyn College, City of New York, writes in a related “Nation” article, that until a few years ago American Muslims were regarded with suspicion of engaging in terrorist activities, but “the new narrative operates more along the axis of culture.”

“Simple acts of religious or cultural expression and the straightforward activities of Muslim daily life have become suspicious,” he explains. (Indeed, the ACLU reports that anti-mosque activity has taken place in more than half the states in the country.)

Bayoumi notes that Muslims filing for divorce invokes the bizarre charge of “creeping Sharia” and a dual-language Arabic-English high school in New York gets demonized as a “madrassa.”

Incredibly, some of the anti-Muslim hatred is being stoked by Federal and local law enforcement agencies. Last September, “Wired” broke the story that the FBI makes wild charges about Muslims to the counterterrorism agents it trains. Bayoumi accuses the FBI of spreading the line that “mainstream American Muslims are probably terrorist sympathizers, that the Prophet Muhammad was a ‘cult leader’ and that the religiously mandated practice of giving charity in Islam is no more than a ‘funding mechanism for combat.’”

Bayoumi points out that the NYPD as part of its training screened “The Third Jihad,” a film that claims “the true agenda of much of Islam in America” is “a strategy to infiltrate and dominate” the country.

The rise in hate crimes parallels the growing unfavorable opinions Americans hold of Muslims. A “Washington Post/ABC News” poll made in October, 2001, reported that 39 percent of Americans held unfavorable opinions of Muslims. That number rose to 46 percent in 2006 and 49 percent in 2010.

At the forefront of this spreading prejudice, “is a series of well-funded, politically motivated campaigns dedicated to painting Islam as an inherently violent and savage religion,” writes award-winning author Jack Shaheen.

“These campaigns are the work of a small group of wealthy donors, misinformation specialists like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, and groups of interconnected anti-Islam organizations: Steven Emerson’s Investigative Project on Terrorism, Daniel Pipes’s Middle East Forum and so forth.”

“Together,” Shaheen continues, “they pound home the myth that mainstream Muslims have ‘terrorist’ ties, that Islam is the new global ideological menace and that Muslims are intent on destroying Western civilization.”

One film that Shaheen scores is “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against The West,” brought out in 2005 by the Clarion Fund, a pro-Israel nonprofit organization. “Steeped in hatred, the film’s…frighteningly Islamophobic message…draws parallels between Islam and Nazism.” Clarion persuaded major dailies to distribute 28 million DVD copies to their readers without charge, he writes in “The Nation’s” July 2nd issue.

Bayoumi warns that “anti-Muslim attitudes are not merely absorbed by law enforcement and the military or reflected on the airwaves and in the words of our politicians. Rather, the idea that American Muslims are to be feared or loathed or excluded from the United States is being actively promoted.”
