Banksters admit rigging markets since 2007, ‘fined’ 33% of 1 quarter’s income while looting tens of trillions tax-free

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tips: here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here :)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tu32CCA_Ig

Asset-hole and so-called “too big to jail” banks admitted criminal looting through market manipulation and collusion last week, and will return a mere 33% of one quarter’s income without prison sentences (total “fine” of $5.7 billion from $15.5 billion 2015 1st-quarter combined incomes - see below).

Please note that the US Department of Justice (sic) fails to communicate the amount looted by the banksters, only the “fines” without context of:

this is a bankster operating expense for pretending to operate under law,
“regulators” serve in government “minor league” positions until “called up” to work for the banksters in the “big leagues,”
requiring the banks to “fire” eight responsible executives without prison sentences just allows them to be rehired by other banksters to resume “business” as usual.

Memorial Day: Praying for Peace While Waging Permanent War?

First, we must learn the facts and face the truth that the U.S. is the biggest war maker in the world.

Second, we must commit ourselves and organize others to a true revolution of values and confront the corporations and politicians who continue to push our nation into war and inflate the military budget with the hot air of permanent fear mongering.

Third, we must admit what our country has been doing wrong, and we must make amends for the violence that the U.S. has waged on countries all over our world.

Others may dare to ask, why and what for?

US and Allies have Created a Transnational “Islamist” Terrorist Network, Head of Russia’s Military Intelligence (GRU)

Posted below is the transcript of the speech of Colonel-General Igor Sergun, Head of the Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia.

This speech was delivered at the Moscow Security Conference in May 2015.

As a general rule, the GRU never makes a public statement, nor does the person heading it. It is thus interesting that on one of the very few occasions where General Sergun agreed to speak in public, he chose to focus on the risks of the so-called “Islamic” extremism and that in a relatively short presentation, he made four references to the fact that these “Islamic” terrorists are basically a creature of the West.

But according to a recently declassified document, the US government knew more than they were letting on (gasp) in regards to the formation of ISIS.

"Subterfuge of all kinds" going on to sabotage nuclear deal with Iran

As attempts are underway to “sabotage” a nuclear deal between Iran and the global powers by “subterfuge of all kinds”, former US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is “the rational player in the room” thanks to his anti-war stance towards Tehran, a geopolitical commentator says.

Gates said earlier on Monday that war on Iran would not be an alternative if the ongoing nuclear negotiations fail for any reason.

“Gates is being more rational than a lot of folks” in the US political system, said Dean Henderson, the author of Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf, in a Monday phone interview with Press TV.

He added that those behind the US banking system would benefit form a “neo-colonial setup” in the Middle East with Israel and the Arab countries in power, that is why they would make attempts to hamper a deal between Tehran and the P5+1 – the US, Britain, Russia, France, China, and Germany.

Ciancia, 24, faces the death penalty and is currently incarcerated in Los Angeles. He has received no mail, written no letters, and has not made or received any phone calls, e-mails or visits. Except for a trusty psychiatrist, of course. The day of the shooting, police found notes Ciancia had allegedly written referring to 'fiat currency,' the 'NWO,' and called 'Big Sis' Janet Napolitano a "BULL DYKE." He wrote that he wanted to "kill TSA and pigs" in order to "instill fear in your terrorist minds." Ciancia also railed against the DHS, Federal judges, the FBI, the Federal Reserve, the ATF, FEMA, and the EPA.

The spread of residential solar power has been largely a middle-class affair.
Despite plunging prices in the last seven years, rooftop solar arrays remain an expensive home improvement, costing $15,000 or more. A 2013 study by the liberal research and advocacy group Center for American Progress found that 67 percent of solar arrays installed in California went to ZIP codes with a median household income between $40,000 and $90,000. Wealthier areas accounted for almost all of the rest.

A Poem On War

Beyond the count of years I walked the world,

and my children built their shrines to me.

Decades and centuries and millennia pass,

and still the shrines are built.

Temples insubstantial to men,

clear to my eyes.

No foundations or walls or roofs,

but shrines nonetheless.

Holy ground, consecrated

Today, every day, somewhere in the world,

the earth is prepared for my coming.

My hallowed grounds are everywhere.

In valleys and on mountains,

on broad plains and deep in hidden passes,

in deserts, on city streets.

Nameless, unremembered places.

71-year-old Los Angeles widow loses running water over $11,000 bill, survives by toting 50 gallons a week

California may be facing a water crisis, but a 71-year-old Los Angeles widow’s struggle to pay for utilities has taught her just how precious the natural resource can be.

Doris Tillman told The Los Angeles Times that she was forced to stop paying for water after the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power sent her a bill for $11,000. She just assumed that the enormous bill must be a mistake.

DWP cut off her water last August. To survive, the 71-year-old woman hauls 50 gallons each week from a nearby water machine — at a cost of about 25 cents a gallon.

Memorial Day in the Hollow Empire

By any conventional definition, the United States of America deserves the title of “empire.” The country was built on the conquest of a continent through a series of crushing military victories and squashed rebellions. The regime in Washington, ensconced in its official buildings specifically designed to evoke the glories of Rome, administers territory that stretches across oceans, commands military forces that can project power to every corner of the globe, and annihilates enemies from the heavens without incurring the slightest danger. You can always find greasy democrats and republicans (small d’s and r’s) whining about the cost of maintaining a monarchy, but the Commander in Chief of the Great Republic travels with far more security, expense, and pomp than the Queen of England.

The Philippines is seeking a "stronger commitment" from the United States to help its ally, the defense minister said on Monday, as China asserts its sovereignty over disputed areas of the South China Sea.

China claims most of the South China Sea, through which $5 trillion in ship-borne trade passes every year, and the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei have overlapping claims.

China said on Monday it had lodged a complaint with the United States over a U.S. spy plane that flew over parts of the disputed South China Sea in a diplomatic row that has fueled tension between the world's two largest economies.

A key source clues me in on TPP code of silence

It's one thing to say a federal scientist can't publicly publish details on how to build an H-bomb. It's quite another thing to say US Senators can't reveal, to the American people, what they're voting on.

There is no Constitutional basis for such an assertion. In fact, it's a direct violation of the Separation-of-Powers principle.

By assigning National Security secrecy-status to the details of the TPP, the Executive Branch is arbitrarily muzzling the Congress.

We're witnessing a stunning farce.

DOD Admits Supporting ISIS, Buffer Zones In Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

While the Western mainstream media and even independent gatekeepers like Noam Chomsky for years spread the lie that any suggestion that the United States and NATO were supporting ISIS was a “conspiracy theory,” recently uncovered and declassified documents from the Defense Intelligence Agency have proven the Western press and the likes of Chomsky wrong and, yet again, the so-called “conspiracy theorists” right.

This is because, on May 18, Judicial Watch published a selection of recently declassified documents that were obtained from the US Department of Defense and the US State Department as a result of a lawsuit filed against the US government...

Erasing the Past: ISIS, Palmyra, and Doomed History

There is something grimly appropriate about the capture of the ancient Syrian town of Palmyra by a supposedly weakened ISIS. Accounts of history are being settled, unmade and reconstituted. The fundamentalist warriors have never made any secret of their hatred of idolatry – at least of the sort condemned by Quranic edict. Religions of the book have tended to fight wars over that very fact and craven worship of images was always deemed to be a vital point of difference.

Canadian sword makers left out of Saudi arms deal

A union representing Canadian sword makers is furious after learning that the Harper government was unable to include Canadian-made swords as part of a $15 billion arms deal recently concluded with Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia is one of the few countries where swords are still actively used for lethal purposes and are not just collectors items. The arms deal with a country famous for carrying out beheadings, was seen by many of Canada’s top sword makers as an opportunity to gain entry into that market.

“It’s really a shame,” said Francois Lafarge, president of CUPE 3000, which represents sword makers. “Saudi Arabia has beheaded 85 individuals this year alone. We really feel the government hung us out to dry on this one.”

Canadian Media Finally Discovers Mass Graves of Indigenous Children

It was eighteen years ago this month that I first handed to a Vancouver Sun newspaper editor a list of possible mass grave sites of Indian residential school children on Canada’s west coast, based on government documents and statements from eyewitnesses who buried children there. I and these witnesses were flatly ignored: not only then, but every other time over the subsequent years that we presented such evidence to the same newspaper.

Year after year, despite all our public protests, forums, and documenting of the location of the mass graves of these children, the Vancouver Sun‘s indifference to the worst crime in Canadian history continued. And this same blind eye approach was replicated by every other “mainstream” media outlet across Canada — even when, in December of 2011, these media received from me evidence of bone and clothing samples unearthed from the Brantford residential school mass grave.

A Police Story Unravels: How Did the NYPD Break an NBA Player’s Leg?

At the risk of stating the utterly obvious, most black men and women who suffer physical violence at the hands of the police aren’t millionaires. They don’t have lawyers on speed dial and lack the resources of a well-funded union leaping to their defense. But most black men and women aren’t NBA players. In other words, they aren’t Thabo Sefolosha. The Atlanta Hawks guard will now miss the playoffs after an encounter with the NYPD left him with a fractured leg and an arrest record. In his first comments following the late-night scuffle outside a Chelsea club, Sefolosha made clear that while his attorneys asked him to be silent for now, “I will simply say that I am in great pain, have experienced a significant injury and that the injury was caused by the police.”

The Biological Weapons Convention Turns 40—Are we any safer?

By Janet Phelan

This year, the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) celebrated its 40th birthday in Geneva, at the Palais Nacions. Amidst speeches and backslapping within the coterie of the BWC crowd, the question that hangs in the air is—Are we really any safer?

The Biological Weapons Convention was signed by the three depositary countries—Russia, Great Britain and the United States—in 1972 and entered into force in 1975. The announcement by the Nixon administration in 1969 that the US would unilaterally renounce the use of biological weapons and discontinue its biological weapons program provided an impetus towards the establishment of the treaty.

Is this a treaty or what? ...

Amid Russia tensions, US nuclear bombers to conduct military drills in Sweden

The Pentagon is planning to send nuclear bombers to Sweden for a military exercise next month amid growing tensions with Russia over the Ukraine crisis.

Sweden is supposed to be neutral, at least nominally. This move shows that Sweden is not a neutral country any more than any country that is a NATO-member could claim to be.

John Nash, ‘A Beautiful Mind’ Subject and Nobel Winner, Dies at 86

John F. Nash Jr., a mathematician who shared a Nobel Prize in 1994 for work that greatly extended the reach and power of modern economic theory and whose decades-long descent into severe mental illness and eventual recovery were the subject of a book and a 2001 film, both titled “A Beautiful Mind,” was killed, along with his wife, in a car crash on Saturday in New Jersey. He was 86.

Dr. Nash, and his wife, Alicia, 82, were in a taxi on the New Jersey Turnpike in Monroe Township around 4:30 p.m. when the driver lost control while trying to pass another car and hit a guard rail and another vehicle, said Sgt. Gregory Williams of the New Jersey State Police.

Early twentieth century, if you go back and look and try to find marriage licenses for your grandparents or great grandparents, you won’t find it. What you will find instead is where people have come in and recorded when a marriage has occurred.”

Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US “Created” ISIS As A “Tool” To Overthrow Syria’s President Assad

From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world’s stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world’s terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the “straight to beheading YouTube clip” purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria’s president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe’s dominant – and belligerent – source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.

Now the Republicans are proposing to cut $150 billion from student aid in the recently passed budget bill, including freezing the Pell program that helps needy students acquire higher education.

Why the US is Finally Talking to Russia

The Dr. Zbig “Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski-style strategy has always been to lure Russia into another Afghanistan in Ukraine, leading to a collapse of the Russian economy with the Big Prize being a Western takeover of Russia’s oil and natural gas wealth, and by extension Central Asia’s. Ukrainians would be used as cannon fodder, as were Afghans since the 1980s Arab-Afghan jihad.

Yet the Obama administration overplayed its hand, and realpolitik now spells out the deepening of the Russia-China strategic partnership across the entire Eurasian land mass; Eurasia as a prospective, massive commercial emporium stretching from Beijing to Berlin, or from Shanghai to St. Petersburg and beyond towards Rotterdam and Duisburg.

Without the exceptionalist obsession of some key Beltway factions, none of the elements of Cold War 2.0 would be in play, as Russia is a natural ally of the US in many fronts. That in itself reveals the state of “strategic thinking” by the current US administration.

Paedophile Mason Keith Harding ran lodge set up for GCHQ (UK's NSA)

The Sunday Express revealed earlier this month how Harding met MPs Cyril Smith and Leon Brittan in the 1980s when he ran a north London antiques store.

Thirty-five years ago he appeared alongside paedophile television presenter Jimmy Savile in a Christmas special of Jim’ll Fix It.

The lodge boasts of its Government Communications Headquarters heritage on its website.

A source close to Harding revealed: “The Mercurius Lodge is known as the Spies Lodge because it was set up by GCHQ and over the years many intelligence officers have become members.

“These are people trained to find out sensitive information and yet none of them had any idea of Keith’s background and past convictions.

NBA Player Is Missing the Playoffs Because the NYPD Broke His Leg, So Why Is The Media Silent?

The NBA Finals have been shaped by the abuse and violence of the NYPD. The Atlanta Hawks guard Thabo Sefolosha was attacked and had his leg broken by the New York police officers last month and has been forced to sit out the playoffs. The nine-year pro was attacked by the NYPD cops in a confrontation outside a Chelsea nightclub. But the NYPD accounts of the incident have proven completely fictitious when compared with the video of the attack that was released shortly after the incident.

The Way of the Gang

A battle between One Percenter motorcycle gangs in Waco, Texas left nine dead, eighteen wounded, and thousands chortling about “White on White” violence on Twitter. Of course, all of the “victims” were members of the MCs, whereas at least 40 people, some of whom were simply walking down the street, were shot over the same weekend in Chicago. But as the Joker tells us, Chi-raq is part of the plan, whereas tribes of mostly White outlaws merrily slaughtering each other in Red State America isn’t something law enforcement is prepared to accept, especially in Texas. People need to feel safe when they order their fried food at the family restaurant next door.

Ole Dammegard - Making Critical Thinking Illegal: Questioning the Holocaust

Ole Dammegård is an author, international speaker, investigator, former journalist, artist and creator of the website Light On Conspiracies.He returns to Red Ice Radio for a special extended segment to speak about his research and thoughts on an extremely controversial subject, the Jewish holocaust. Ole has spent at least 25 years investigating a multitude of conspiracies, and this area of history involves such an incredibly sinister agenda that it is now illegal in some European countries to question the official story or even attempt to investigate the facts. We discuss the sad fact that in the west, where we have a strong tradition of philosophizing and discussion, this story involves so much horror, misery and bloodshed that most will not even dare entertain the notion of a massive cover-up at play.
