Bill Gross: “Ours Is A Country Of The SuperPAC, By The SuperPAC, And For The SuperPAC”
“This side’s better – no, that one looks best. Elephants/Donkeys, Donkeys/Elephants. Perhaps the most farcical aspect of it all is that the choice between the two seems to occupy most of our time. Instead of digging in and digging out of this mess on a community level, we sit in front of our flat screens and watch endless debates about red and blue state theologies or listen to demagogues like Rush Limbaugh or his ex-cable counterpart Keith Olbermann.””
Mahdi Hashi: UK ‘discards own citizen who refused to spy on Muslims’
“A Somali-born Briton was stripped of his citizenship by the home secretary and probably taken in secret to the US for illegal detention and torture as reprisal for his refusal to become an MI5 informant, his family alleges.”
“Mahdi Hashi grew up in the UK from the age of five and was a British citizen. This summer the 23-year-old went missing, and his family found out that the Home Office had stripped him of his passport for allegedly being involved in Islamic “extremist activities”.”
“His parents are distraught. They say that Madhi is an innocent victim of a British intelligence plot and that he was punished after he refused to work for MI5.”
“Back in 2009, Mahdi Hashi was a care worker in a north London community center. It was then that he and four of his Muslim colleagues say they were approached and harassed separately by British security agents. Hey claimed that MI5 threatened to label them “Islamic extremists” if they refused to become informants for British intelligence and spy on their Muslim community.”
“Mahdi refused. He complained to his MP Frank Dobson and the Investigatory Powers Tribunal, the body which oversees MI5. He also spoke to the media in a bid to protect himself.”
“The UK government decided that Mahdi should be denied the privileges and protection of citizenship due to his “extremist activities”, a letter read.”
“Lawyers acting on behalf of the Hashi family have inquired the Home Office, and the response was most elusive:”
““It has been the policy of successive governments neither to confirm nor deny speculation, allegations or assertion in respect of intelligence matters,” it read. “This policy is maintained, and accordingly the secretary of state can neither confirm nor deny the allegations made on behalf of your client.””
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah – if you are not going to say anything useful then shut the hell up.
What are these “extremist activities” and why could they not be put before a judge and jury in a court of law as evidence of a crime ?
Are the government going to discard my citizenship ?
Ecuador Demands Repatriation Of One Third Of Its Gold Holdings
“So yesterday: Germany… today: Ecuador… tomorrow: the World?”
“Because while Ecuador, with its 26.3 tonnes of gold, may be small in the grand scheme of gold things, all it takes is for more and more banks to join the bandwagon and demand delivery in kind from official repositories (i.e., New York and London), and the myth that is the overcollateralization of hard money by central banks will promptly come to an abrupt, bitter and, likely, quite violent end.”
Jim Willie: Central Bank Gold Rehypothecation Scandal to Take Gold to $5,000/oz
“A nasty Golden Harp could soon have its cords plucked, with the resonance working to shake loose the bankster cover of improper illicit duplicitous and probably highly illegal usage of Allocated Gold Accounts. When diverse scattered accounts are pilfered and depleted without authorization in Switzerland, resulting in several multi-$billion class action lawsuits in Zurich, all kept dutifully out of the news, that is one thing. But when a few key official government gold accounts are ransacked in systematic fashion from established trusted locations, defying and betraying the trust of the German Govt and other national governments, that is quite another. To be sure, the system can tolerate ransacking and replacing with scurried harried efforts the Venezuelan gold account like in 2011. The media told the story with creativity and aplomb, avoiding the truth, inventing a tale, but finding a credible pile of dung to feed the public, which swallowed it whole. The global monetary war has been raging for four years, ever since the Lehman Brothers firm was targeted and destroyed with planning and motivated execution, for the benefit of Goldman Sachs full CDS redemptions and exploit by JPMorgan in war chest reload under cover of bankruptcy court orders. The media prefers regularly to refer to the global financial crisis incorrectly and improperly. A crisis passes after a year or so. This war lingers like WWI and WW2 and Vietnam, with a clear emerging agenda to defend the USDollar regime from global isolation shun, to conceal the USTreasury Bond support mechanisms in derivatives, to avoid the US banking system from grotesque insolvency but kept afloat by grand money laundering channels, and to motivate an endless war to secure resource thefts and control that center on oil fields and the poppy fields. Witness the slow gradual inexorable collapse of the global monetary and financial system.”
“Some historical research reveals that the infamous Brown Folly had a basis in aiding Deutsche Bank. The Bank of England was directed to sell a huge lot of its national gold treasure between 1999 and 2002 to mark the Gold market bottom. It was not sold, but rather handed to D-Bank in order to satisfy a big margin call. They aided both D-Bank and Goldman Sachs, each heavily short and at risk. The Gordon Brown action was done with two unusual signpost markings. The sale was announced in advance, thus permitting front running by London and New York bank buddies. It was done in auction, to assure the lowest possible price. The actions set the low. But the actions bailed out D-Bank secretly.”
Something Goes Bump On European Halloween: ECB’s Marginal Facility Usage Soars
“European bank liquidity needs are supposed to be fully taken care of. Yet something went bump on Halloween. As the ECB reports, borrowing on the prohibitive, and largely “last resort” ECB “Marginal Lending Facility” (whose rate is an usurious 1.50%), one or more banks saw their need for EUR explode in the last day of the month”
This is what the start of the unwinding of a non-fix fix looks like.
JP Morgan Sues the London Whale’s Boss Martin-Artajo
“JPMorgan disclosed trading losses in May after what Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon said were “egregious” failures to manage flawed positions on synthetic credit securities. The bank is still recovering from those bets, the losses on which had risen to $6.2 billion through the first nine months of 2012 and may increase, the bank has said.”
Yep, you read that correctly – JPM have said the losses may increase.
Bleeding the Taxpayer: An Old Technology Dolled Up As New
“On September 14, 1899, Henry Bliss stepped off a streetcar at West 74th Street and Central Park West in New York and got run over by a taxi. A plaque points out that it was the first automobile fatality in the “Western Hemisphere.” The taxi was an electric vehicle. As were 90% of the taxis in New York City and about 30% of all cars sold in the US. Electric cars aren’t exactly new. Yet, the government is bleeding the taxpayer to advance the technology, create jobs at a cost of $158,556 per job, and fund executive bonuses.”
“Today, Republican Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and John Thune of South Dakota lambasted the Obama administration for the $2 billion it handed to 29 companies to manufacture advanced batteries for electric cars. It was part of the bipartisan $787 boondoggle stimulus bill of 2009 that performed mind-boggling wonders in the US economy. The senators were particularly irked by the facts surrounding one of the major recipients, the poster boy for the program, battery maker A123 Systems, which filed for bankruptcy two weeks ago.”
While creating jobs at a cost of $158,556 per job, is it any wonder that America is drowning in debt.

Silver Update 10/31/12 Crony Capitalism
18m55s “Capitalism is the idea that by the use of capital the general, overall wealth of society will increase. So we have to look at capital. Capital is the amount of savings in a society. In other words, the way you get capital in your society is if your citizens put aside the amount of money or wealth that they receive through wages or through profits if they’re middle class or upper class. The amount of money they save above what they spend, if they take that money and they invest that money in productive enterprises, enterprises that produce profit then they become more wealthy by doing so. So the essence of capitalism is to save capital for investment purposes.”
21m15s “The united states is run primarily by Benjamin Bernanke, the chairsatan of the federal reserve, who has done everything he can possibly do to destroy capitalism. He has made it to so there is a perverse incentive so that anybody who has savings will not save it and invest it but will spend it.”
22m5s “They try to discourage capital formation. So capital formation is the essence of capitalism. If you don’t have capital formation, you don’t have capitalism.”
23m40s “Spending it on their cronies or giving it to banks. But the fact remains that capitalism is about capital.”
24m15s “The problem is not capitalism, the problem is crony capitalism. It’s the crony capitalists and their minions who are suppressing the price of silver because they know that when the price of silver explodes to the upside it’s going to be a crisis of confidence in the US dollar. Gold and silver are going to go up together, they’re going to skyrocket on the next move and at that point the crony capitalism of the US and the US federal reserve will be exposed for what it is, which is a gigantic financial fraud and at that point what is discredited is crony capitalism and not capitalism.”

POLICING FOR PROFIT: Feds try to take innocent elderly couple’s Mom-and-Pop motel
“The most contentious civil forfeiture fight in the nation will be the subject of a week-long trial starting Monday, November 5, 2012, in Boston. Throughout the week, the Institute for Justice, which represents the property owners in the case, will expose the ugly practice of civil forfeiture—where law enforcement agencies can pad their budgets by taking property from innocent owners who have never been convicted or even charged with a crime.”
“The trial will start at 10 a.m. at the John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse, 1 Courthouse Way in Boston. The case of Tewksbury, Mass., motel owner Russ Caswell and his wife will be presided over by Magistrate Judge Judith G. Dein in Courtroom 15. At the heart of the trial will be the protections afforded innocent owners, like the Caswells, when faced with the loss of their property.”
“All Russ and his wife want is to peacefully operate their motel. But because their property was worth one million dollars and carried no mortgage, and because a handful of drug crimes had taken place on the property over 20 years (which represent less than .05 percent of the 125,000 rooms the Caswells rented over that period of time), the federal government is trying to take the Caswell’s property through civil forfeiture, sell the land and keep the money. Under a process known as “equitable sharing,” the federal government would keep 20 percent of what they net and the local police department would pocket 80 percent. Russ and his wife stand to lose everything they worked their lives to build.”
You couldn’t make this s**t up.

And if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.””

It ends up as toxic waste in dams and sediment ponds on the surface where the water is caused to evaporate leaving behind hundreds and thousands of tons of salt. They haven’t worked out what they’re going to do with this salt.

Cancer patient illegally evicted from home at gunpoint
“Niko had legally declared bankruptcy and had been fighting Wells Fargo in a civil suit against eviction. She had owned her home for almost 20 years and had lived there since she was a child. She never even had a mortgage with Wells Fargo, and has entered into a civil suit around the fraud they have perpetrated against her, fraud that goes back many years.”
“After she filed bankruptcy, the court sided with Niko and put a stay on Wells Fargo’s eviction. Despite this, officers from the OCSD along with Wells Fargo employees harassed her on several occasions.”
“”Wells Fargo filed a motion about an inch thick all the reasons why they should be allowed to evict me,” Black said about the court order. “The federal judge denied them and stated very clearly they are not to. The bank illegally acquired an unlawful detainer, an eviction, without due process. They did it with fraudulent paperwork.””

But the US federal government has also shipped guns by the truckload into the American cities of Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and Gary. The US government has also been shipping heroin in from Afghanistan. The Global Hawk is a pilotless drone version of the U2 spy plane. It has a compartment which allows the CIA (Cocaine Importing Agency) to export heroin 3,400 pounds at a time. American taxpayers pay 179 million dollars for each drone to transport the CIA’s heroin.”
