Category Archives: Bailouts & Banks

Banks took extraordinary risk in the early 21 Century and demanded tax payer funding to continue operations, some governments foolishly agreed and the taxpayers became angry. This act of pandering to greed and stupidity of the financial elites was one of the driving forces behind the occupy movement. though some people seemed to forget this.

Justice Geoffrey Flick : MCC should be shot

Why?

this:

Justice Flick, one of three appeal judges, said he had reviewed footage of the removal of the tent dress and was shocked by what he saw.

“Those who made the directions for this conduct to be pursued should be shot. It’s grossly offensive,” he said.

Remember a knife was cutting the tent apart just inches from the back of Kerrsions neck during the incident. This knife (called a tool by Victoria Police) was provided to MCC workers by Victoria Police during the incident. One of the council workers refused to take part in the incident and walked away, though the remaining MCC workers and police mindlessly abused the young woman by tearing away her  clothes and leaving her in her underwear  on the grass.

 

This incident occurred the day after Victoria police were humiliated by the original tent monster action which saw Kerrison and two  other” tent monsters”  run around the park and  utterly demoralize Victoria police who felt like the fools that they were.

Clearly Victoria police don’t know the meaning of the phrase :”It’s all in good fun”

Banco Espirito Santo nationalised, debts jetisoned

BancoEspiritoSanto_app

 

Portugal’s largest bank has been bought by the government after toxic debts were discovered. Rather than stupidly bailing out the speculators and banking executives, the bank has been divided into two parts, the good part with all the assets, and the bad part with all the toxic debts for all the shareholders and speculators. This is effectively the same as finding the vandals on your wooden ship, making them a raft out of the wood they damaged, and them setting the vandals adrift on it, wishing them good luck knowing that it won’t help them.

Portugal has just invented the bailout we expected to happen in the USA following the GFC.

WW1 Oil Oligarchs Odius Orders

Today we remember the official beginning of the what was called then the great war, the war to end all wars. France and the British Empire had just declared war on Germany and the Austro-Hungarian empire. At the time  the British Empire was a truly world power with loyal colonies all around the world. Its not really possible to consider WW1 on its own but more as a pair of wars with WW2 being the sequel, that tried to not look like it was a sequel. The only real change to WW2 was the switch of sides of Italy who joined the axis forces and the trenches were moved to the English channel and cities in the Russian Steeps.

The real proof that the war was designed to have a sequel was the Treaty of Versailles, which forced Germany into crushing reparations. Germany simply had to have a war to get a new treaty that excluded the reparations.

Why did it happen:

Some people with no scruples and vast power decided that in order to further their aims they needed to:

  1. Collapse European monarchies, their only real competition.
  2. Kill off working class people in western Europe who might other wise become excess to requirement and therefore  threat.
  3. Reduce the standard of living that had been improved by industrialization, to keep people poor and ignorant.
  4. Move and erase borders in Europe to allow their global finance cartels to expand further.
  5. Create division among people in Europe an the wider world, and divert their efforts into fear and the creation of weapons, so they did not focus on the real enemy, the globalists.

 

Dam obvious proof ? The war started with the assassination of the Arch Duke Ferdinand of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Ancestral monarchs were an endangered species. This empire disintegrated after this war.

Several important but apparently subtle changes had just occurred.

Britain:

Queen Victoria had died (1901) and the Edward VII died in 1910 leaving George V with just 4 years in the role before war diplomatic relations broke down and turned to war. George the V had to change the name of their royal house from Saxe Coburg Gothe  to Windsor to sound less German and more English. Interestingly a similar ‘fast baton change’ occurred just before WW2 with George VI’s predecessor famously abdicating after less than one year, giving George VI just 3 years to prepare for war. Perhaps if either monarch had more experience war might  have been averted (or was that the plan all along).

The British navy had just converted to being a petroleum powered fleet and thus was reliant on access to foreign oil rather than domestic coal. The first move upon entering the war war to send troop to Basra to secure British oil supplies form the state of Iraq which it later manufactured from the ashes of the Ottoman empire.

USA:

The United States had Converted their monetary system to the Federal reserve system largely controlled by European bankers.

Hiram Maxim had invented a workable troop carried heavy machine gun along with his own variant of smokeless powder, European powers copied his design and soon most major armies had heavy machine guns. The heavy machine gun completely altered the wars that would be fought, making charges with troops and cavalry against fortified positions hugely costly in casualties. The heavy machine gun was a weapon built to be defensive in nature, it was designed to mow down troops in crowds from a fixed position, itself being too heavy to be moved easily while in use. This made for a mutual siege and prevented any real advance without slaughter, leaving battles bogged down in trenches, where it might have remained had it not been for the Spanish flu (influenza) which swept the world in 1917 and hastened the end of a pointless waste of human potential. One wonders if we would still be in the trenches of western Europe now had the Spanish Flu now come along.

Developments during the war(s):

The British invention the tank, Churchill who was a military man during WW1 said he wanted a land based version of a battle ship to turn the tide of battle.

The tank became central to Germany’s successes in WW2.

Aeroplanes were in an auxiliary role in WW1 by by WW2 had become pivotal in many battles. In more modern times the aeroplane has now almost supplanted the navy as being real military power with the aircraft carrier now being the most important overt aspect of modern navies.

Germany had used chemical weapons during the trench warfare, but use of these weapons (chlorine gas and mustard gas) was frowned upon in subsequent wars though they sadly seem to be making a come back in more recent conflicts.

In WW2 Germany had produced the first jet fighters but had produced them too late to deploy them to great effect. Germans had also significant advanced the field of rocketry so the war closed, USA (operation paperclip) and USSR scrambled to capture German scientists and government officials to power develop their war machines, space programs and their hold over their own populations.

At the war closed The USA dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which opened a new trench warfare against USSR with the trenches being the Atlantic and Arctic oceans. Both USA and USSR now had the secret of the atomic bomb and the rockets to deploy them and suspiciously eyed each other for 50 years occasionally weaving and feinting.

Agenda:

The true agenda of this war was to remove ancestral monarchs from Europe so there would be less people influential enough able to resist the globalist ambitions of the multinational banking families, who wished to expand their sphere of influence. The Russian Bolsheviks ousted The Russian emperors family (House Romanov ) from power 6 months  before the war ended . The disintegration of empires was the hallmark of this war and it’s companion war (WW2) less than a generation later. By the end of these war both the Austro-Hungarian empire and the Ottoman empires were gone, reduced to small countries. While the Russian empire now became a Communist state was expanded particularly after WW2.

In fact by the beginning of WW2 it was no longer kings and emperors declaring war it was presidents,  prime ministers and governments, though the British still went through the ceremony of asking for a royal rubber stamp for the process.

Following the industrialization of production in Europe there existed a growing bubble of excess labor and people who were becoming dangerously comfortable with the benefits of efficient production. People had free time and were beginning to educate them selves. This industrialization was perverted into a war machine with factories now turn to creating devices of destruction rather than creature comforts.  This was the  first industrial war with vast resources turned to supplying the war effort.

2 world wars

European empires destroyed: 3 ( Austro-Hungarian, Russian*, Ottoman.) *The Russian empire was destroyed but expanded as the USSR.

Empires on the decline:  several (most notably the British; losing India in ’47 and Canada in the 60’s, Germany; losing its colonies during the first world war, and a third of its territory for half a century)

People killed:  6% of the worlds population, mostly working class soldiers and civilians caught int he crossfire. A disturbing trend of 20th century warfare has been the increasing numbers of civilians killed from one conflict to the next.

Winners? after WW2 USA was apparently a winner having stayed out long enough to pick a winner, or at least appearing to do so. Well the real winner was the federal reserve system shipping all this skimmed money back to the European globalist bankers. Russia was also a big winner having absorbed most of the former Austro-Hungarian empire and a good third of Germany, which it held until the USSR dissolved. The USSR (2.0) is coming back and beginning to re-absorb states that broke away in the 90’s. We are seeing this occurring with eastern Ukraine right now. As we know the House (of Rothschild) always wins.

So there you have it, an in a nut shell version of the WW1 you never considered.

 

Approximately 1 in ever 5 males in Australia volunteered to go to war in the 1914-1918 period, very few were to realize when volunteering, the appalling conditions in France and Turkey and the fact the war was just a geopolitical chess game run by European bankers to expand their own power.

 

The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact.

Wikileaks Oz-SEA corruption coverup exposed

Your aren’t allowed to know about what you aren’t allowed to know about.

In a truly big brother move the Australian government is trying to keep the suppression of information order itself secret.

What is next is secret prisons and secret prisoners.

 

From wikileaks.org  press release:

Australia-wide censorship order for corruption case involving Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam
WikiLeaks release: July 29, 2014
Blanket censorship order preventing reporting on Australia’s largest financial corruption case and any derived allegations against the current and former heads of state of Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam and other senior officials.
The document also specifically bans publication of the order itself and the June 2014 affidavit of Australia’s newly appointed representative to the UN, Gillian Bird. The order was granted under “national security” grounds in order to “prevent damage to Australia’s international relations”. The order was issued following the indictment of seven senior executives related to the Reserve Bank of Australia. The case concerns allegations of multi-million-dollar payments to persons with high-level political connections in Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia in order to secure contracts for the production of Australian plastic currency banknotes for these countries.

End The Fed Rallies Are Spreading Like Wildfire

 Starting in Berlin about two  months  ago, huge Anti-war and   End the Fed rallies have begun to spread all over Germany and the rest of Europe.
The protesters consider the corrupt banking system the chief problem in the world today.
At it’s core, the Occupy Movement also had the anti-fed and fiat currency protests, but often activists who brought up these subjects were and are dismissed as right-wing conspiracy freaks by the socialist element that tried to hi-jack the occupy movement. Looks like the tide may be turning.
In Australia we currently have a lot of people protesting the budget and the latest government, but very few seem to understand the global connection. Time to wake up!

Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog:

This is a fascinating development and one that I had no idea was happening until today. It seems that rallies are spreading throughout Germany protesting the corrupt and dying global status quo. One of the key targets of these groups is the U.S. Federal Reserve system, which as I and many others have maintained, is the core cancer infecting the entire planet.
According to the organizer of these rallies, they have now spread to up to 100 cities and have a combined attendee base of around 20,000. What is also interesting, is that the mainstream media in Germany is calling them Nazis. In Germany, if you don’t support Central Banking, this apparently means you are a Nazi. What a joke. Just more proof mainstream media everywhere is complete and total propaganda. It is also a good sign, since it shows the desperate lengths to which the power structure will go to keep their criminal ponzi alive.

Do these folks seem like Nazis to you?

 

Anti corporate: not anti capitalist

Recently the MSM went digging for quotes from original organizers who apparently wished to claim to be organizers but don’t want to identify themselves. These fools wanted to claim the Occupy Melbourne was an anti capitalist movement. When did I see it advertised as that? Never.

Just more bullshit from Marxists and their cronies trying to claim ownership but in a tangential way now that the name Occupy Melbourne is too hot to handle.

Occupy Melbourne was never Anti Capitalist

So to clear up the created confusion by a poorly researched initial two paragraphs we give you this:

1372173351242

So there you have it corporatism is a form of socialism, hence all the bank bailouts, another reason we went to occupy. So in reality occupy was an anti socialist protest that got infiltrated and sandbagged by socialists of various stripes.

1377186290240There were of course some rather lame claims of  this being a site for conspiracy theorists ( what a Nixon term ) so we leave you with the  god father of 20th century conspiracy JFK.  JFK decided it was time to start minting silver coins again through EO 11110 and then he was killed in broad daylight. Co-incidence? We’ll let you decide, we just wanted to make you aware of that.

We generally don’t promise or offer solutions, we just raise issues. Only you can decide and demand the world you want to live in.

Commonwealth bank $100M loans Ponzi

They said it wasn’t happening here, it didn’t happen here. The truth was it was better covered up here.

And while Victoria Police corporation worked so hard to shut down Occupy Melbourne as a street protest the very reason we were protesting the dirty frauds committed by banks, Victoria Police corporation were investigating this fraud.

The bank heres received secret bail outs, and at least one bank has  been involved in propping up a Ponzi scheme and snatching the victims houses.

Worst of all was CBA (Commonwealth bank of Australia’s) response to the scam, get on board and  side with the scammer to steal the house.

Narcissism epidemic

narcissus

 

A good audio presentation here from Jean Twenge, interviewed by Lynne Malcolm.

 

http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/allinthemind/the-narcissism-epidemic/5455512

Interestingly she cited Facebook and reality TV as major sources along with overly doting parents (you’re so special) and easy credit to live out the fantasy life.

She has been saying this for years, even at a conference in Melbourne over 3 years ago.

A study Jean Twenge  conducted of 16,000 university students across the US showed 30 per cent were narcissistic in psychological tests, compared with 15 per cent in 1982. ”They are all 18 and 19-year-olds, so this is clearly a generational shift,”

Jean Twenge, professor of psychology at San Diego State University

http://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/life/new-generation-infected-by-narcissism-says-psychologist-20110302-1bewf.html

 

Of course there are subtle aspects to this the overconfidence of narcissism makes successful stock traders overconfident. Over confidence is good in a rising market but disastrous in a falling market as trader will have fewer fall back positions and be poorly hedged. While traditional investment theory states market generally rise, traditional market theory was developed in an environment where oil supply was expanding one decade to the next. So now there is no great expansion in oil, our specially preened narcissists at the helm of the financial system are a liability rather than a benefit. The only way to expand the financial system is to encourage horde of young narcissists to create debt-money with credit card spending, its no surprise this epidemic has been encouraged.

Facebook-Narcissism

Facebook; one of the most insidious tools of narcissism was funded by people with links to shadowy connections in the US government. Seriously how could you run a site with hundreds of millions of users without receiving money from somewhere, think about where that somewhere was/is.

narcissism-obama-autobiography-narcissism-dog-political-poster1

This of course bring us to the first Facebook president, Obama. Obama campaigned  heavily on Facebook edging out Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination to go head to head with McCain, was it not for Facebook, likely Hillary would have got the nomination. Look at the narcissism overdrive we see in Obama, two Auto biographies before 45.

 

It all reminds me of a quote I remember from an occupier.

Nick Carson, Oh my god, what a narcissist! He hijacked Occupy Melbourne.

The worst part was that there were a hundred more just like him, waiting around ready to take his place.

 

At OM a problem we could see that was hard to address was gen Y hipster narcissists, and narcissists in general. The kind of self deluded people living in a self constructed fantasy world who will lie, cheat and steal if it gets them what they want. Narcissists think they are smart and greatly able, but its only because they thrown all of their failures into a memory hole or blame some one else for it. Narcissism the disease that will rot any community, tents or no tents.

 

 

Roughly 1 in 3 in Gen Y is clinically a narcissist, that’s very scary considering how much and how fast this delusion has grown in just a generation, what if its 50% in the next generation?

 

Not only are we living in a post peak oil world, we are living in a post peak sanity world.
