Their price stability efforts are creating increasing wilder price instability.

Julian Assange and Others Sue the U.S. Government Over Secret Courts
“Many people exhibited extreme apathy with regard to the aggressive manner in which the U.S. government went after Julian Assange and Wikileaks for merely doing basic journalism. Now, after the revelations of widespread spying on mainstream journalists in the AP case, and the criminalization of the profession itself in the case of Fox New’s James Rosen, many people are finally starting to wake up as the chickens come home to roost, as they always do eventually.”
“As such, I think this is a great moment to turn our attention to the Kafkaesque trial about to get underway right here in the “land of the free.” In this case, I am referring to the trial of Bradley Manning. If you are still unaware of this case, I suggest you watch this extremely powerful 5 minute micro-doc called Providence. ”
Bradley Manning may be a private in the army but he is showing the world that the emperor has no clothes.
In reply to the charge of ‘aiding the enemy’ levelled at Bradley Manning, I would reply that the two Reuters employees torn the shreds by cannon fire were not the enemy.
“May 22, 2013, New York –Today, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) filed a complaint and motion for preliminary injunction asking a federal district court in Baltimore to order the military judge in the court-martial of Bradley Manning to grant the public and press access to the government’s filings, the court’s own orders, and transcripts of the proceedings, none of which have been made public to date. In addition, the lawsuit challenges the fact that substantive legal matters in the court martial – including a pretrial publicity order – have been argued and decided in secret.”

Incredibly Important Developments In Many Key Markets
“Imagine a bona fide hedger attempting to institute a risk management program for his or her firm and trying to read this crap and formulate a sound plan to insulate their company from financial havoc! I will go as far as to state for the record that the Fed itself has now become the greatest source of market instability and volatility that any risk manager must reckon with in this day and age.”

World Bank Insider Blows Whistle on Corruption, Federal Reserve
“A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve. The network has seized control of the media to cover up its crimes, too, she explained. In an interview with The New American, Hudes said that when she tried to blow the whistle on multiple problems at the World Bank, she was fired for her efforts. Now, along with a network of fellow whistleblowers, Hudes is determined to expose and end the corruption. And she is confident of success. ”
“The shadowy but immensely powerful Bank for International Settlements serves as “the club of these private central bankers,” Hudes continued. “Now, are people going to want interest on their country’s debts to continue to be paid to that group when they find out the secret tricks that that group has been doing? Don’t forget how they’ve enriched themselves extraordinarily and how they’ve taken taxpayer money for the bailout.””
“As far as intervening in the gold price, Hudes said it was an effort by the powerful network and its central banks to “hold onto its paper currency” — a suspicion shared by many analysts and even senior government officials. The World Bank whistleblower also said that contrary to official claims, she did not believe there was any gold being held in Fort Knox. Even congressmen and foreign governments have tried to find out if the precious metals were still there, but they met with little success. Hudes, however, believes the scam will eventually come undone.”
Why won’t Bitcoin die? (I notice that bitcoin has NOT joined the global sell off)
“Math, or the underlying ingenuity of the Bitcoin protocol, is a big part of the reason for its resilience. Bitcoin is basically a ledger system in which every transaction in the economy must be logged in a central public record called the blockchain. New transactions are checked against the blockchain to ensure that a specific user hasn’t tried to spend that Bitcoin before, eliminating the “double-spend” problem. The system depends on users to provide the computing power to do this logging and checking. These users are called miners because they’re rewarded for their work with new Bitcoins; this also means the money supply will gradually increase until it hits a cap of 21 million. Once that happens, miners will be compensated with transaction fees just like those charged by PayPal or Visa.”
“The Winklevoss twins structured their presentation around a quote attributed to Gandhi: “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.””
“Bitcoin can no longer be ignored.”
“Supposedly there were a lot of bankers at Bitcoin 2013, but I only met one, a 24-year-old New Yorker who works for one of the biggest investment banks in the world. “I’m a trader. I make shit go up and down,” he said, by way of introduction. He asked that I not use his name or the name of his bank because of his employer’s high profile.”
Traders, and their manipulations, must be kept out of bitcoin.
“”What is the definition of the death of Bitcoin?” said Mike Caldwell, the creator of Casascius Coins. “Bitcoin is two things. It’s a community, and it’s a technology. The only way for Bitcoin to die is for people to lose interest in using it. No matter what the attacks are, there’s always going to be a way around them. Because Bitcoin is just today’s embodiment of the idea that we now have the technology to democratize money. So long as there is a demand for that, the only way I see Bitcoin dying is for it to be a predecessor to something else that does a better job.””

U.N.: Afghan’s $61B drug trade funding terrorism
Kerry Complains About Hezbollah Fighters in Syria
“The State Department declarations about Hezbollah fighters and Iranian assistance ignores the fact that the CIA is arming and supporting foreign mercenaries in Syria. In addition to CIA sponsored mercenaries, the presence of British and Qatari troops have been reported in Syria.”
“In April, Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service Director Viktor Ivanov said around 20,000 foreign mercenaries financed by Afghan drug trafficking are attempting to overthrow the al-Assad regime in Syria.”
“Afghanistan’s drug trade “is funding insurgency, international terrorism and wider destabilization,” United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said in 2011.”

HSBC Couldn’t Track $60 Trillion in Suspicious Activity?
Not just a few dollars, not a few million dollars, not a few billion dollars but tens of TRILLIONS of dollars.
The 1.2 billion dollar fine works out at 0.00002% of 60 trillion dollars but if this was you or I we’d be in jail and the whole amount would be forfeited with compounded interest.
You wonder if from among all of the terrorists that moved their money through HSBC, could one of them be associated with the guy who just committed murder in the ‘terror’ attack in Woolwich, London ?
Obama Admits to Killing Four Americans with Drones
“In other words, the administration admits to deliberately killing a U.S. citizen without due process. The target was merely suspected of being a terror threat and this president clearly ignored his rights under the Constitution. No evidence has ever been provided to prove his guilt. It was all done in secret.”
Try the suspect in absentia, DAMN IT, and if they are found guilty by a jury of their peers THEN AND ONLY THEN does the government get to pass sentence.
I have no doubt that King John of 13th century England would have sure liked to exercise such power.
Does anyone else think this is well f**ked up s**t ?

100 Days of Guantanamo Hunger Strike: Special Coverage
“May 16 marks a dark milestone in the history of the world’s most maligned prison – 100 days of a mass hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay. Out of 166 inmates – 130 are on strike according to prisoners, while the military only admits to 102. At least a third of them are being force fed – a procedure recognized by various medical organizations as painful enough to constitute torture. And by all accounts – there’s no end in sight to the protest.”

“Sharyl Atkisson is the one thing CBS News has going for it. She’s the real article. As real as you can be in the current news climate, while still working for a major media outlet.”
“She crashed the credibility of the CDC, as it was lying through its teeth about numbers of Swine Flu cases and overplaying the fake “epidemic.””
“She’s taken on the horrific effects of vaccines, to the point where her Wikipedia page, through a series of unethical maneuvers, continues to characterize her as irrationally “anti-vaccine.””
“She broke key elements of Fast&Furious. She’s a hound on Benghazi, and the Obama administration’s funding of “green programs.””
“Now, she states that her computer was compromised in 2011, as she was covering Fast&Furious. She’s still working to find out what happened.”
