5 Giant Un-American Corporations Trying to Bolt U.S. to Avoid Taxes

Corporations get enormous benefits that regular "persons" do not. One of the biggest is limited liability. This means that the shareholders are not liable for the debts of the corporation. A corporation can get in a lot of trouble, financial and otherwise, and then just close up shop, divide its assets to its creditors, and the shareholders can just walk away losing only the money they originally put in. While it might be a "person" to certain members of the Supreme Court, there is no person to be made to work off the debt or to put in jail.

Millions of pensions to be hit by controversial changes slipped in by the Government just before its summer break

Millions of Britons have been warned their State pension payout will be hit by controversial changes sneaked out by the Government before ministers head off on holiday.

At present, anybody can decide to delay claiming their State pension - and get a bonus worth around 10 per cent a year on their unclaimed State pension.

More than 1.2million pensioners in Britain currently receive a higher State pension because they deferred it, typically for a few years although many delay for a decade.

But Steve Webb, the Pensions Minister, has revealed plans to slash this bonus in a move which will hit everybody who reaches State pension age on or after 6 April 2016.

Rather than a bonus worth 10.4 per cent a year of their unclaimed State pension, they will get a bonus worth only 5.8 per cent a year.

NY Fed Slams Deutsche Bank (And Its €55 Trillion In Derivatives): Accuses It Of "Significant Operational Risk"

First it was French BNP that was punished with a $9 billion legal fee after France refused to cancel the Mistral warship shipment to Russia (which promptly led to French National Bank head Christian Noyer to warn that the days of the USD as a reserve currency are numbered), and now moments ago, none other than the 150x-levered NY Fed tapped Angela Merkel on the shoulder with a polite reminder to vote "Yes" on the next, "Level-3" round of Russia sanctions when it revealed, via the WSJ, that "Deutsche Bank's giant U.S. operations suffer from a litany of serious problems, including shoddy financial reporting, inadequate auditing and oversight and weak technology systems."

This is the pot calling the kettle black, in light of Wall Street's $90 trillion derivatives exposure. Of course, this may just be trying to lay the blame for the coming crash in Europe's banks.

The Malaysian Airlines MH17 Crash: Financial Warfare against Russia, Multibillion Dollar Bonanza for Wall Street

Moreover, the political threats and insinuations directed against the Russian Federation in the wake of the July 17 disaster, have been coupled with a renewed wave of economic sanctions directed against major Russian corporations and financial institutions.

The TRUTH about China’s Massive Gold Hoard

Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst
Casey Research

I don’t want to say that mainstream analysts are stupid when it comes to China’s gold habits, but I did look up how to say that word in Chinese…

One report claims, for example, that gold demand in China is down because the yuan has fallen and made the metal more expensive in the country. Sounds reasonable, and it has a grain of truth to it. But as you’ll see below, it completely misses the bigger picture, because it overlooks a major development with how the country now imports precious metals.

I’ve seen so many misleading headlines over the last couple months that I thought it time to correct some of the misconceptions. I’ll let you decide if mainstream North American analysts are stupid or not...

Obamacare hit by ruling, but subsidies to continue

President Barack Obama's health care law is enmeshed in another big legal battle after two federal appeals courts issued contradictory rulings on a key financing issue within hours of each other Tuesday.

A divided court panel in Washington called into question the subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people pay their premiums, saying financial aid can be paid only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges.

About 100 miles to the south in Richmond, Virginia, another appeals court panel unanimously came to the opposite conclusion, ruling that the Internal Revenue Service correctly interpreted the will of Congress when it issued regulations allowing consumers in all 50 states to purchase subsidized coverage.

The White House immediately declared that policyholders will keep getting financial aid as the administration sorts out the legal implications.

NYC gives the green light to the building of apartments with a 'poor door' for tenants living in affordable housing

The City of New York approved a proposal by one of the largest real estate developers in the city to build in a 'poor door', or a separate door for residents living in affordable housing to enter their building.

According to a Saturday report from the New York Post, the city approved the application of Extell, one of the most prominent developers in New York, to install this separate set of doors into a high-rise located on 40 Riverside Boulevard, a location situated next to the Hudson River.

Extell's proposal allows them to force affordable housing tenants to walk through an entrance located in a back alley behind the building to enter, leaving the more prominent front entrance for tenants paying for nicer apartments.

Dirty Dealing Harry Reid

Rather than write an article on this, I thought I would just post an email I received this morning. Harry Reid is up to his usual tricks. You remember him. He's the one who owns land close to the public land that Cliven Bundy was running his cattle on. Reid, with his son working with the Chinese, was hoping to make a fortune over selling land to them. Our land, by the way. Federal property does not belong to these crooks in D.C. but to all Americans.

Now he's trying to ram through legislation that would allow for taxing activity on the Internet. This is only the camels nose in the tent. Once it starts, where does it stop? Let's fight to keep our Internet free. It seems that these politicians are desperate for more money. More taxation without representation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It isn't just the money. They can write the internet taxes in a way where large corporations survive by passing the tax along to their users while small independent media websites (like this one) are forced out of business.

BREAKING: Obamacare dealt massive setback by federal appeals court

Millions of Americans are not entitled to government health insurance subsidies under Obamacare because of the way the law is written, a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.

In a decision that could blow a massive hold in President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, the court held that people living in states that relied on the federal government to set up their insurance market exchanges cannot offer the subsidies considered critical to making coverage affordable.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the administration used an IRS rule to stretch the meaning of the Affordable Care Act, which said financial aid to to low- and middle-income people should only flow to exchanges “established by the State.” If that means only state-run exchanges, it would cut off subsidies to two-thirds of the nation.

Defense Report Sees Environmental Warfare, Corporate Armies and Robot Takeover

Among other issues, the 2006 report accurately envisioned a “revolutionary middle class” that would revolt against economic hardship and burdens of debt.

An updated version of the report was published on June 30, 2014. Titled "Global Strategic Trends out to 2045", the report outlines a future in which globalization limits countries “freedom of action”, alternative currencies challenge the establishment, environmental warfare and viruses delivered via insect-machine hybrids...

Silver Opium – The Eastern Revenge

When I began to explore the opium wars, which began in the early 1700?s and came into full view in the early 1800?s, Britain, France and the United States, had taken full aim at China in the name of “free trade”. Things haven’t changed all that much since the West looked East to find a flow of wealth they could not control.

The Chinese had a lock on trade in the early 1700?s by having products that people wanted to purchase, silk, tea and porcelain in particular. The Chinese were not that interested in what the East had to offer. At the time silver was not only money, but it was the currency of the day. People used silver like we use worthless paper dollars/debit cards today.

“Epic in scale, unprecedented in world history.” That is how William K.

They involve more than a dozen felonies, including bid-rigging on municipal bond debt; colluding to rig interest rates on hundreds of trillions of dollars in mortgages, derivatives and other contracts; exposing investors to excessive risk; failing to disclose known risks, including those in the Bernie Madoff scandal; and engaging in multiple forms of mortgage fraud.

So why, asks Chicago Alderwoman Leslie Hairston, are we still doing business with them? She plans to introduce a city council ordinance deleting JPM from the city’s list of designated municipal depositories.

When the Government talks of Sanctions

Sanctions only serve the Government, not the People.

When a foreign country, such as Russia, Iran or Cuba, is at the receiving end of sanctions, only the people suffer. Americans suffer because they can’t export as much so they loose money. And the people in those foreign countries also suffer because they cannot receive the benefits of American-made products to make their lives better. In either case both governments benefit. How?

The US government enlarges its reach of power much like a two-bit mafia don: “Do what I say or else. Capisce?” It does not suffer because it produces nothing and its long arm is in every American pocket via the IRS and other tax authorities.

The foreign government is also happy because it too is a two-bit mafia don with its hands on every lever of the economy. When its people cannot progress they’re at its mercy: “Do what I say or no bread. Capisce?”

The bank wreckage, the market rigging, the endless wars, the sanctions which backfire, the sham monetary policy, the economic sabotage, the spying, the gold gimmicks, it has finally reached a critical level.

Germany has begun to move East in full view. Only the deaf dumb and blind cannot notice, and they will probably never notice. They are fodder.
The awaited signals seen by the Jackass have finally arrived.

Berlin is outraged by clear USGovt spying, and in process of conducting a Gold audit among their population. Germany is building motives to split from the Euro Monetary Union (common Euro currency) by forging stronger open ties with Russia & China. The justification is becoming plainly laid out, in four perceived indictment charges.

Retail participants tend to forget we make money on both the long and short side.The small-fry who provide liquidity always assume a sharp decline in equities is a terrible thing because “everybody is losing their gains,” and this general belief is pushed by the mainstream financial media: unfailingly chirpy news anchors’ expressions and voices darken when reporting the rare drop in stocks: horrible, horrible, horrible, a drop means we all lose, I’m sad reporting this.

But We The People know you are lying to us about Malaysian Airlines flight 17, just as you lied about Assad gassing his own people right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors, just like your predecessor lied about Saddam having nuclear weapons, just like previous Presidents have lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Pearl Harbor being a surprise, the Lusitania not carrying military cargo, a Spanish mine in Hava harbor, etc. etc. etc. always with the intention of tricking this nation into wars of conquest.

And We The People are sick of it.

Our children are worth more than some stack of bank notes cowering in fear at the Ruble and the Yuan. If maintaining the US dollar as the global currency is that important to the bankers then put those owners of the federal Reserve into uniform and send them out to be killed and crippled.

Happy Birthday Paper Money: 353 Years Of Wanton Destruction

On July 16, 1661, the bank of Johan Wittmacher - a Latvian merchant of Dutch descent - became the first in history to issue paper banknotes - Kreditivsedlar. After only seven years, the bank collapsed. But the idea of paper notes lived on to infect the evolution of money ever since. Today’s commercial banks take in customer deposits, maintain a laughably small portion in reserve, and use the rest of our money to make idiotic loans for their maximum benefit. When they fail, they’re bailed out by taxpayers and do the same thing all over again. In Wittmacher’s time, this was fraud. Today it’s not only legal, it’s the industry standard. So... happy birthday paper money. It’s a hell of a system you’ve brought us.

Michigan Food Seizure by Stealth, Welcome to Amerika

Jenny Samuelson was all set to do the deal dictated by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development: Dispose of nearly $5,000 worth of raw milk, cream, butter, eggs, and cheese. Under MDARD supervision, she was to bring the 250 gallons of milk to a neighboring farm, where the farmer would use it for fertilizer. The 10 gallons of cream and 20 pounds of butter would go in a dumpster. And the 100 dozen beautiful unwashed and unrefrigerated pastured eggs (raised without soy feed) would be smashed and turned into compost.

She would also discontinue all deliveries of cream and butter to herdshare members, despite their serious unhappiness about losing access to these foods.

But then the MDARD agents canceled out on the Saturday morning arrangements whereby they would observe the disposal of the food. They have now agreed to show up first thing Monday morning to watch the dirty deed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The government wants us all dependent on the large food corporations, even if what those corporations provide is inferior to naturally produced farm food.

US Government Orders Farmers To Destroy 30 Million Pounds Of Their Own Crop

In one of the worst examples of government regulation and intrusion, the US government ordered Michigan cherry farmers to literally dump 30 million pounds of cherries on the ground. Even worse, many cherry farmers are being driven out of business because of the outrageous rules.

The practice is coming to national light because of a new lawsuit against the government filed by a cherry processor. A judge currently is considering issue.

“The food pantry shelves are bare, people going hungry, and here we are dumping millions of pounds of cherries on the ground,” Michigan cherry grower Rob Manigold said of the 2009 incident. That was the same year farmer Leonard Ligon dumped 72,000 pounds of tart cherries along a road outside Traverse City, Michigan, to protest US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations on his state’s cherries.

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Freemason BUS & the House of Rothschild

.... Jefferson watched as the Euro-banking conspiracy to control the United States unfolded, weighing in, “Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of the day, but a series of oppressions begun at a distinguished period, unalterable through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery”. [7[

But the Rothschild-sponsored Hamilton’s arguments for a private US central bank carried the day. In 1791 the Bank of the United States (BUS) was founded, with the Rothschilds as main owners. The bank’s charter was to run out in 1811. Public opinion ran in favor of revoking the charter and replacing it with a Jeffersonian public central bank. The debate was postponed as the nation was plunged by the Euro-bankers into the War of 1812. Amidst a climate of fear and economic hardship, Hamilton’s bank got its charter renewed in 1816.

Chinese leader woos Latin America with deals

China's president pressed a charm offensive with Latin America on Thursday, signing deals with Brazil, meeting regional leaders and proposing a $20 billion infrastructure fund that highlights Beijing's growing interests in the region.

I guess Obama will have to shoot down a passenger jet near China so he can start pushing for sanctions there as well!

12 Reasons Why Should Obama be Arrested Under the Patriot Act and the NDAA?

Never mind impeaching Obama. He needs to be arrested by the Sargent of Arms in Congress or a Courageous General in the Pentagon placing him in military custody under house arrest at Camp David or another secure location awaiting a fair and impartial trial having a jury of his peers with the assistance of council. The Patriot act and the NDAA can be used to arrest President Obama because of his terrorist ties and giving aid, working to undermine and destroy what is left of the republic by refusing to secure the border under Article 4 section 4 putting the American people in danger with diseases, releasing violent felons on the streets of American instead of deporting them, giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States and trying to collapse the country. Something has to give or we face a great danger if this Dictator is not stopped in his tracks. Because we believe in the rule of law. President Obama will have due process of the law the NDAA and the Patriot act denies.

Bank of America reports 43% drop in quarterly profits

Bank of America has reported a 43% drop in its second-quarter profits after a fall in mortgage revenue and a rise in legal costs.

The bank, the US's second largest, said net income of $2.3bn (£1.34bn) was down from $3.4bn (£1.99bn) a year earlier.

Its finances have been hit recently by huge payments to the authorities to fend off accusations of wrong-doing.

In the past year, its earnings per share have fallen from 32 cents (19p) to 19 cents (11p).

In April the bank agreed to pay $9.5bn for misleading US mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac before the financial crisis in 2008.

Putin Poised to Retaliate Against Obama by Trashing Iran Deal

Earlier this week, Putin promised to retaliate against the United States for new sanctions targeting his friends and business associates, as well as large Russian defense, energy, and financial firms. On Thursday, Putin called President Obama to alert him a civilian jetliner had crashed over Eastern Ukraine, a tragedy the U.S. says was caused by a missile shot from a Russian-made SA-11 mobile surface to air missile system located in a separatist-held area.

Putin’s next call was to none other than the President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani.

“Mr. Putin and Mr. Rouhani exchanged views on the state of talks on Iran’s nuclear program,” stated the Kremlin readout of the call. “The two leaders also examined bilateral cooperation matters of mutual interest, including joint projects in the oil and gas sector and in peaceful nuclear energy.”
