The really worrying financial crisis is happening in China, not Greece

While all Western eyes remain firmly focused on Greece, a potentially much more significant financial crisis is developing on the other side of world. In some quarters, it’s already being called China’s 1929 – the year of the most infamous stock market crash in history and the start of the economic catastrophe of the Great Depression.

Greece: The Pearl Cast Before Swine

The Greeks were right to reject paying the debts, for these debts were forced upon them by the giant vampire squid, Goldman Sachs, in words of Matt Taibbi. “The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it’s everywhere. The world’s most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money”. As we now know, Goldman Sachs (you do not have to be an anti-Semite to hate them) cooked the book,s falsely pretending Greece had a high credit rating though they knew of its huge debts. When the debts snowballed, they pulled the rug and collapsed Greece’s rating, bailing out banks at the expense of the European taxpayer.

Favoring corporate interests above all else, European Parliament backs TTIP

Members of European Parliament (MEPs) on Wednesday passed a resolution on the pending trade deal between Europe and the United States, backing a controversial provision that critics warn places corporate profits above the health and safety of the people and puts the continent's fragile democracy at great risk.

Despite clear disagreement within European Parliament (EP) over the inclusion of a modified version of the Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provision, MEPs voted 436-241 in favor of a draft text of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

The Financial Attack on Greece: Where Do We Go From Here?

Today’s guiding theory – backed by monetarist junk economics – is that debts of any size can be paid, simply by reducing labor’s wages and living standards, plus by selling off a nation’s public domain – its land, oil and gas reserves, minerals and water distribution, roads and transport systems, power plants and sewage systems, and public infrastructure of all forms.

Its horrible customer service is legendary, and things have actually gotten worse as the company has sat on its hands waiting to be sold off to a rotating crop of equally dysfunctional suitors. When you’re this bad at what you do, you have to be truly creative in finding new and imaginative ways to annoy your customer base.

Donald Tusk urged Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to turn to friends for help but the president of the European Council did not specify who those were.

It is clear who Tusk is referring to. He is attempting to dissuade Greece from entertaining any notions of partnership with Russia. In reality, Greece has no friends among the majority of the European Parliament and Commission, who are in the case of the former are little more than serial gravy-train passengers. In the case of the latter, they are unelected politburo-style bureaucrats and banksters' puppets. On the other hand, Greece has long-standing cultural ties with Russia.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras called for the eurozone to reach a deal with sustainable solutions to the Greek crisis in a speech at the European Parliament Wednesday, saying the “austerity laboratory” that Greece has become has been a failure for the country’s people.

“The simple fact is that we have to face and accept that the majority of the Greek people feels that they have no other choice other than to demand that they be given a way out of this impasse and this dead end," said Tsipras, adding that poverty and public debt have soared with the austerity “experiment” imposed on Greece.

The Facts That Gun Grabbers Can’t Wrap Their Minds Around

It seems like there are irreconcilable differences between those who are pro-Second Amendment, and those who advocate gun control, and I think it goes beyond their personal beliefs. They think about the world in fundamentally different ways, which becomes plainly obvious when you see how these two groups compile data on homicides and gun ownership. Let’s take a look at how anti-gun folks see these numbers:

Higher ownership of guns in the United States has been linked to more violent crimes and overall homicides, according to a new study by researchers at Harvard University.

I was intrigued when I first read that. I don’t think it would change my overall position on the rights of human beings if this were true, but I’d like to know if the statistics I give readers are true or not, so I decided to read more into this study.

Hillary Clinton: “People Should and Do Trust Me”

Below are the highlights pieced together from what has been publicized as the first exclusive one-on-one sit-down interview with Hillary since she announced her presidential run.

It’s painful to watch (and not just because it’s Hillary either). It’s like watching someone full-to-bursting with nearly four decades of lies and scandals try to act like a normal person in under five awkward, cagey, and defensive minutes.

The first cringe-inducer?

When CNN’s Brianna Keilar asks her, “Do you see any role that you’ve had in the sentiment that we’ve seen where people are questioning whether you are trustworthy?”

Hillary responds with that’s just a theme that’s been used against her and her husband for many, many years.

Just a theme used against you guys for many, many years? “Gee, I wonder why that is,” said no one ever (*cough Clinton body count *cough).

According to the CDC, heroin use in the U.S. has been growing at an "alarming" rate, with overdose fatalities doubling in the past few years. Darwin nods approvingly

Heroin use in the United States has grown at an "alarming rate," resulting in double the overdose deaths between 2011 and 2013, health officials said Tuesday.
A report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found use of the recreational drug increased between 2002 and 2013 across multiple demographic groups -- gender, age and income level. The study found the biggest increase in use, though, was among groups who historically had lower rates of use, including women, and people with private insurance and higher incomes.

TOP CORRUPT LEADERS IN THE WORLD

Corruption has been the coveted jewel in everybody’s crown since antiquity. Aristotelian philosophy believed that everybody who had power could become corrupt. Nietzsche said that we commit corruption only because there is financial gain. In the 19th century when those that had the power made politics apparently accessible even to the poor by paying politicians a salary in our democracies where already paving the way for their own wealth accumulation. Paying salaries to politicians for the first time so that the wealthy did not have the monopoly of the control of the function of decision making? Were they kidding us back then into believing that politics was democratic? Of course they were pulling the wool over our eyes into making us believe that everybody, whatever their status, would get to govern the country. What they were really doing was making sure that they were able to siphon of the greenbacks from the state, but this time making it look as if it were all above board.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corruption has eaten the heart out of alleged representative government here in the US.

We used to be a government of the people by the people and for the people; we are now a goverment of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations which own the American political process as never before.

The Kabuki-like process of elections in this country is a complete farce.

We the People never actually get a real choice in candidates, other than those which the corporations have chosen, because they know those candidates will "deliver" on their agendas.

Remember President Obama saying that he would have "the most transparent administration in history"?!? Wow, did that turn out to be a piece of hypocritical irony, looking at what has happened since President Obama took office.

Look at the secrecy involved in these "fast track" trade agreements, which were corporately purchased through donations to Congressional representatives.

Look at UPIgate; Benghazigate; Fast&Furiousgate; IRSgate; and the continued messes in Iraq, Syria, Somalia and Libya.

Can you possibly tell me, with a straight face, that the actions taken to remedy these issues were done with "transparency"?!?

Thinking people would have to say "no" to this question. In fact," HELL, NO!!" would be a more honest response.

And please don't think I am criticising the Democrats over and above the Republicans: they are equally complicit, for what they have done for their corporate masters, at the expense of their alleged constituents.

Greece – The Triumph of Democracy – the first day of a New Beginning

Congratulations! – With a resounding “OXI” = “No” – with 61% the Greek rejected the troika imposed austerity. They joined a majority of economists worldwide, including from the IMF, who also know that austerity doesn’t help recovery – and certainly doesn’t wipe out debt, the noose around a country’s neck.

But – what does the decisive no-vote mean for the 39% yes-voters? – Do they want more of austerity? – Hardly. Or were they manipulated with fear-mongering by the mostly privately owned western media, which also dominate Greece?– Blackmailed by the threats of Brussels? – Were they afraid of what’s next? – Western presstitute media propaganda for a “yes” vote, spiked with fear, threats and purposeful confusion was horrendous.

A Greek Tragedy Playing Out Today

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The Greek people have been known throughout history for two social contributions: developing the form of governance known as “democracy” and for their classic drama plays, which usually are referred to as “Greek tragedies.”

Little did the Greek people think that they would be living a very real life, true Greek tragedy that has unfolded with uncanny drama: Banks closed for a week, maybe longer; 60 Euros as a “daily ATM allowance”; all while probably becoming a poster child for what may be the eventual undoing of the European Union. How so?...

These same people dare to lecture the elderly in Greece that they must work into their old age so that these shysters can get their pound of flesh.

Saturday was a rather slow news day. The crisis in Greece was on a brief hiatus before the Sunday vote, and most Americans were busy celebrating Independence Day. The only thing that was widely reported was Putin’s 4th of July message to President Obama, in which he offered an olive branch to the US. “In his message of congratulations, the Russian President noted that, despite the differences between the two countries, Russian-American relations remain the most important factor of international stability and security.” The message mostly interpreted as a kind of “Happy 4th of July” to the President.

More Wag the Dog: Obama’s “Spontaneous” Singing of Amazing Grace at Charleston Eulogy Not Spontaneous at All

In the weeks since the Charleston church shooting, that event has been politicized to the maximum amount possible for gun control pushes and race baiting.

One very “Wag The Dog” moment came when Obama decided to personally give the eulogy for South Carolina Senator Clementa Pinckney who was killed in the shooting.

The mainstream media tried to spin Obama’s eulogy as one of the most amazing things the president has done in his existence on this planet. Pundits left and right slobbered all over the eulogy and the idea that Obama was so moved during his delivery that he spontaneously burst into the song “Amazing Grace”.

Turns out, it wasn't spontaneous at all. The media, by the way, seemed to forget the whole thing was even a funeral or the man who died and was the reason for the entire event in the first place. All media attention and focus (and drool) went to Obama's staged singing.

Greek ‘No’ Vote Spurs Wider Resistance

Greek voters rebelled against Germany and the dominant powers of Europe by rejecting demands for more austerity, but the Greek resistance also is resonating across the Continent, emboldening other hard-pressed countries tired of Depression-like conditions.

Despite an unprecedented fear campaign, brave Greeks plunged the European Union into a moment of reckoning with a deafening “no” to “bullying,” “terrorism,” and “humiliation” – or more precisely, 61 percent voted against and 39 percent for creditors’ terms that would have condemned not just Greeks, but millions of other Europeans to another decade of austerity and hardship.

Or will they remain unbending, force Greece into official bankruptcy and inexorably out of the euro?

The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the case and spoke on condition of anonymity, said a police check of the weapon’s serial number shows it belonged to a federal agent. The official declined to elaborate further.

'Hackers' give orders to German missile battery

The attack took place on anti-aircraft ‘Patriot’ missiles on the Syrian border. The American-made weapons had been stationed there by the Bundeswehr (German army) to protect Nato ally Turkey.

According to the civil service magazine, the missile system carried out “unexplained” orders. It was not immediately clear when these orders were carried out and what they were.

The magazine speculates about two weak spots in the missile system which could be exploited by hackers.

One such weakness is the Sensor-Shooter-Interoperability (SSI) which exchanges real time information between the missile launcher and its control system.

The second exposed point is a computer chip which controls the guidance of the weapon.

Gold And Silver Are Paper-Slammed – Is The System Collapsing?

By Dave Kranzler

When a thoroughly corrupt government wants to try and hide something from the public, they exert an all-out effort to misdirect and cover-up. The financial markets are no different. It’s been obvious to anyone with one good eye and one brain cell that the puppet-masters behind the Wall Street/DC “curtain” have been propping up the Dow/S&P 500 and exerting forceful downward pressure on the price of gold and silver. Why gold and silver? Because gold and silver, for 5,000 years, have been the world’s “alarm system” alerting everyone when something is terribly wrong...
