Italy borrowing at 6% to fund a loan to Spain at 3% – 103% RETARDED

Farage: “The Euro Titanic Has Now Hit The Iceberg”


“insane farce of Italy funding Spain’s banking bailout at a loss (borrowing at 6% to fund a loan at 3% as we discussed here).”


I thought I had seen my fair share of stupidity and that nothing can shock me but I get proven wrong yet again.


This negative 3% differential is now causing the water tight compartment of the Titanic, we shall call Italy, to take on water.
The much vaunted leadership of the European Union are 103% retarded.



Are they engaging in a cunning plan a la Blackadder’s Baldrick ?


I think the label ‘socialism’ is incorrect, what is actually taking place can best be labelled as ‘anti-social’.

“Why Would Politicians Allow The Free Market To Work And Expect To Be Re-elected?”


Rogers on Spain Bailout: “This is Insane! Let Them All Go Bankrupt!”


“He thinks the bailout to Spain is misguided and the worst possible outcome from the EU. His argument is that bailouts aren’t helping anyone in Europe. They are not helping solve the economic crisis nor the financial stability of the region.”


“With great emotion, Rogers proclaimed, “Let them go bankrupt. Let them all go bankrupt!””


“He continues in the video below:”


““The solution to too much debt is not more debt! It’s the most insane thing I’ve ever heard. It’s going to make the collapse — when it comes – even worse. Be careful. No, don’t be careful– Be worried!…

SWIFT Collateral Damage: U.S. Exempts Seven Countries From Iran Oil Sanctions


“It appears the administration is desperately attempting to undo the self-inflicted damage caused by its attempt to use the SWIFT system as an economic weapon…which backfired horribly as Iran began selling its oil for gold to nations such as India.”


“The US Monday exempted 7 nations from Iran oil sanctions (translation: please go back to using dollars for Iranian oil rather than gold!!)”


“Notice that while India, South Korea, South Africa, Turkey, and Taiwan (US allies) are now exempt from the sanctions, China noticeably is not.”


“This will be as successful as attempting to un-shoot yourself in the foot.”

Debt Jubilee, Asset Jubilee, You’re On The Road To Roota With Bix Weir–11.Jun.12


“We’re already seeing the start, in Italy a bank holiday was declared by BNI bank, depositors presently cannot access their funds or pay bills. However, fear not, the bank will still accept payment for debts owed to them. But pretty soon, those debts, along with the bank’s deposits may very well cease to exist. Which is why gold, silver and a quantity of paper notes is still your best financial survival program.”


If you have either debts or assets in paper then you will be relieved of both in the coming jubilee.


When Is A Bailout Not A Bailout-When You’re A Spanish Bank–11.Jun.12


“The so-called Spanish Bank Bailout is purely illusionary and isn’t really happening. Rather, it is an effort to convince the people of the world that something is being done and that the situation is under control. In reality, the world economy is being ravaged like a California forest by a wild fire. They’re pouring all the water they can to put the fire out, but there’s not enough water in the world to bring it under control. The fire must run its course, and the best we can hope for is that once the forest has been burned to the ground, we can try to stop it from reigniting.”


“On the subject of ETF’s and whether they’re really holding all the gold they claim to, the Funds have been caught flat-footed with the disclosure that the gold bar held up by CNBC reporter Bob Pisani, during his visit to the GLD vault at an undisclosed location, was actually owned by another ETF, unrelated to GLD. That’s why there’s no substitute for physical gold and silver. Watch the weight, not the price.”

Mixing his metaphors while he’s having so much fun at the ridiculousness of the situation.


“I’ve been talking for ten years about the dollar, dollar index. All that is the exchange rate between the dying dollar and the dying euro. It couldn’t be more meaningless. Everyone of these currencies is going down real items of value whether it be gold or food or energy and it’s going to keep doing that until they have to start over with a new currency.”


Who needs a new currency when we have gold and silver but especially silver.


“You know, it’s like two swimmers trapped in the Atlantic and pulled out to sea by a tide they can’t fight and they’re starting to drown and they’re giving each other mouth to mouth resuscitation and you know how it’s going to end up, they’re still going to drown. There is no other way… Except in this case they’re trying to grab onto each other and push the other one down. Whether they’re trying to save each other, they’re both going to die… That’s it, the final analysis, how ‘money’ dies, this is how it’s done and there’s no way out of this except to out your insurance policy now.”


“I just happened to have a silver eagle … most of them thought it was worth a buck … none of them were even concerned enough to goggle it, check it out … you’d better look at that and understand that is going to be real money and you’re going need to have these, so you’d better start getting them now rather than when you have to have them. Of course, you know the response, the result. I didn’t get through … There’s a wake up call coming, Andy, and we’ve trying to sound it for years and these people are intelligent people and they don’t get… Look, we’re winding up the longest, it’s forty years, the longest experiment in money printing, market manipulation and propaganda in the history of mankind and I cannot put that more lightly. It’s a forty year experience of failure and brain washing, when things are that big, they have to fall big. And it’s amazing to see how few people understand the simplest concepts. Mostly  because they don’t want to understand, they’ve been taught to believe otherwise.”


“The one thing we learn from history, is we never learn from history… I look back to my parents younger years which was the Great Depression and the impact it had on their families and all of my friends families and now, it never happened, you know, they’re so oblivious to it … the ultimate wake up call is when the system goes and then they really have to deal with it and then it’s hallelujah”


The paper currencies we currently have do not possess any intrinsic value nor can they be exchanged for a fixed measure of anything of intrinsic value and furthermore the paper currencies are an obligation because the custodian, a government, runs a credit card.


On the other hand, intrinsic value is found in the labour of each and every one of us which we have been taught to be willing to receive paper currency which does not possess any intrinsic value in exchange for our labour.


A tipping point is reached when a sufficient number of paper currency holders are exchanging out of holding paper currency and into those items of intrinsic value causing their paper currency prices to rise, eventually to the Nth power which is when paper goes bidless and items of intrinsic value go offerless, that’s hyper-inflation or more accurately price hyper-inflation.

Duped by Congressional Lies


“The Social Security pamphlet of 1936 read, “Beginning November 24, 1936, the United States Government will set up a Social Security account for you. … The checks will come to you as a right.” Americans were led to believe that Social Security was like a retirement account and that money placed in it was, in fact, their property. Shortly after the Social Security Act’s passage, it was challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court, in Helvering v. Davis (1937). The court held that Social Security was not an insurance program, saying, “The proceeds of both employee and employer taxes are to be paid into the Treasury like any other internal revenue generally, and are not earmarked in any way.” In a 1960 case, Flemming v. Nestor, the Supreme Court said, “To engraft upon Social Security system a concept of ‘accrued property rights’ would deprive it of the flexibility and boldness in adjustment to ever-changing conditions which it demands.””

CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera, et al: What’s behind Western media’s ‘truth’ of news?


“Take the Libya issue as an example, the reports of Western media never mentioned how many innocent people were killed and wounded during the NATO air strikes. Nor did they report that Gaddafi was murdered and that international laws were violated. The Western media are actually the spokesperson of the Western hegemonic interests and will do anything extreme in order to safeguard the interests of Western capital in the world. The hypocritical behaviors of Western media are conspicuous in recent international affairs. The truth has become unclear under their concealing.”


“Many people believe the lies made up by the Western media but rarely pursue the truth. A bad social tendency is that someone believes in something forever and some others never believe in it.”


“Moreover, some media even tie their interests to the Western countries and make propaganda in the daily reports. In this regard, our society should not keep silence any more but should form a corrective mechanism. ?”


Should people believe what has been proven to be the case or believe what remains unproven ? There are after all three provens: actual proven, disproven and unproven. Too many people take a case that is unproven and assume that it will be proven but it never becomes proven or they disbelieve it when it is disproven.


This is fatal failing in human nature.

FULL ENGLISH TEXT: H.E. President Bashar al-Assad Speech At the Syrian People’s Assembly


“Communication between officials, whether in the legislative or executive authorities is essential for the citizens who need to express their concerns; but it is a greater need for officials because their success, whether they are part of the executive or the legislative branch, is directly linked and strongly relevant to their relationship with citizens and their ability to draw ideas, plans and visions based on the aspirations and proposals of the citizens and their need for a better life.”


“If the Syrian citizen is our objective, he should be our starting point. And if we are working for the Syrian citizen, and if our objective is to serve the citizen’s interests, then the citizen’s views should be our guiding light. Focusing on the oversight role of the Assembly shouldn’t undermine its participatory role with the executive authority. Those who are charged with oversight and accountability should be able to propose solutions; and this requires this institution to be turned into a beehive for work and dialogue so that it becomes the generator and the locomotive of the development process in Syria.”


Sounds more Ron Paul-ish than most of the political class we are lumbered with.


“When we talk about the oversight role of the People’s Assembly – which is its most important role – over the executive authority”

Contrast this with Panetta and Dempsey saying American presidents don’t need the Congress for declaring war.


“Today you start your legislative role at a critical juncture whose dangers go beyond all the dangers faced by Syria since the evacuation of the French occupation. This gives you an exceptional role in dealing with two forces going in opposite directions. The first force pushes backward and tries to weaken Syria and violate its sovereignty and perpetrate acts of killing, sabotage, ignorance, backwardness and serve the interests of foreign powers.”


Heck, this is good.


“These events have caused a great deal of suffering to our homeland and consumed a great deal of its material and non-material resources. In my first speech under the roof of this Assembly, and when the crisis was in its first weeks, I talked about the outside factor without emphasizing it since the greatest responsibility of any failure in any house is that of the owners of the house and those who live in it before it is the responsibility of foreigners. But at that time, some people went as far as denying the existence of the foreign factor altogether and considered this argument an escape from internal obligations. They argued that the gist of the problem a disagreement between Syrian parties and that what is happening on the ground is a purely peaceful movement and that the source of any violence is the state. Some people made this argument in malice and bad faith and others made it with naivety, lack of knowledge, and as a result of media forgeries. Now, and after more than a year from the beginning of these events, things are clearer and masks have been lifted. The international role in what is happening is already well-known not only for decades, but for centuries past. And I don’t think it’s going to change in the foreseeable future. Colonialism is still colonialism. It only changed in terms of methods and ways of attack.”


“The political process is moving forward, but terrorism is growing and hasn’t subsided. The laws which have been passed since the beginning of the crisis haven’t made an impact on terrorism and made it subside. At the beginning they said that the problem is that there are no political parties. The political parties law was passed; or said that the problem lied in article 8 of the constitution. The whole constitution was changed. There were other pretexts and justifications, but reality has never changed as far as terrorist acts are concerned. We are neither analysing nor inventing something new. Reality itself is providing the clear answer.”


“Terrorists are concerned neither with reform nor with dialogue. They are criminals who have set themselves a task; and they are not concerned with condemnation or denunciation.”


“These forces have run away from elections claiming that they have boycotted them. When you boycott the elections, you do not boycott the state, the government or the ruling party. You boycott the people because elections are the right of the people and because the voter is the citizen, not the state and not the party. Consequently, how can any person stand in front of people and say I represent the people yet I boycott the people. This is an impossible contradiction. It cannot happen even in an imaginary movie.”


“I raise a question: why didn’t this terrorism that we see today strike so violently before the crisis although Syria is surrounded by countries which have known this kind of terrorism for over ten years?”


“Some unemployed people take money in order to take part in demonstrations. We all know this fact. But some people used to have work, but they left it because they found the other job easier, they go out for an hour or half an hour and take money in return. There are adolescents aged 14 or 15 who were given about 2000 Syrian Pounds for every person they kill.”


“Everyone is talking about the terrorists inside the country, but we haven’t talked about the responsibility of those who love their country, but as I said didn’t know how to love it. This is a big problem which is not less dangerous. That’s why I talked a lot about this issue today.”


“Now we are free: we have a new constitution, and the laws have been passed, and our credibility in terms of our desire to introduce reform is beyond doubt as a state.”


“Everyone knew the numerous cases of forgery which were done in order to tarnish the reputation of this national institution by associating it with heinous terrorist acts. Mistakes which happened from time to time were manipulated by certain individuals and exaggerated to make them look like a methodological approach endorsed by the state and its institutions in general. Here we need to distinguish between mistakes made by individuals who belong to any state institution and mistakes made by the institution itself.”


“Last week, after the atrocious al-Houla massacre, they accused the armed forces of committing it. In the beginning they said that it is the result of artillery and tank shelling, but later they retreated because they felt the amount of popular support for the armed forces had and because accusing the armed forces is an accusation to every Syrian citizen without exception of being a criminal and a terrorist. That’s why they started talking about pro-government militias, as they describe them.”

Perhaps someone can tell me if the dying establishment media have dropped the artillery aspect of al-Houla massacre because do not pay any heed to the dying establishment media.


“Hadn’t we felt the pain and the anger which reached boiling point for me personally and for all of those who have seen these cruel scenes on television, particularly the children, we wouldn’t be human beings. This is the natural human feeling and the patriotic feeling too.”


“This is what happened to us in 1980s, and they tried to repeat it now. Some lived through that period and maybe there is a generation who doesn’t recall that period. I’m referring to an incident which happened in 1979 or 1980, when two religious leaders from two different sects in one city were killed, and sectarian strife would have followed had it not been for the wisdom of most of the population. That is what they are trying to do now.”


“The people stood fast and they failed. So they had to move to create sectarian sedition. I believe that is the last card they have, and it shows their bankruptcy. I call upon all those who react emotionally in such cases to think deep and hard about what happened and about all the events since the beginning of the crisis.”


“We live in an atmosphere of forgery. Some people might be good-hearted and say that everything that is being said is true until proven otherwise, or they say that is it reasonable that everything surrounding us is mere forgery. We should say that all these things are forgeries and fake until proven otherwise.”



Bilderberg 2012 Marks a Turning Point in Focused and Cooperative Activism


“The political makeup of the protesters was extremely diverse with libertarians, socialists, anarchists, war veterans, anti-war activists, Christians, New-Agers, Occupy protesters, and those with no affiliation whatsoever coming together not as a mob but as a grouping of Individuals who have the same goals and interests.”


“dubbing the demonstration “Bilderfest 2012,””


“The 2012 Bilderberg Demonstration exhibited a startling lack of anger and hatred; rather it was an startling amount of love and commitment to one other that defined the atmosphere… anger that produces peaceful resistance and productive change.”


Bilderberg 2012 and the Death of Corporate Media


Speaking of the Bilderberg Conference…


“remember the words of Carroll Quigley, historian of rare ability rescued from obscurity by Bill Clinton, of all people. Quigley specifically mentions the super secret private parties.”


““The powers of financial capitalism had [a] far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.“ – Tragedy and Hope
