Turkish man inspires hundreds with silent vigil in Taksim Square
“Erdem Gunduz – dubbed ‘standing man’ – stages eight-hour vigil and is joined by 300 people during silent protest”
What will it take ? Do all 74 million Turks need to go on a silent vigil before the prime minister stops labelling peaceful Turks as ‘terrorists’ ?
Turkey and the Paradox of Democracy
“Over the last few weeks Turkey has seen lots of protests against the ruling Justice- and Development Party (AKP). It all started last month when environmentalists occupied the Gezi Park near Istanbul’s Taksim Square. The activists resisted the planned deconstruction of this last green area in the center of the city, which had to destroyed to make place for a shopping mall. The government answered with excessive police force, causing four protesters to die and thousands to be wounded. Many others were arrested. Not only active participants in the protests, but also lawyers who defended them and doctors who were treating injuries caused by the police.”
“The police violence triggered a nationwide protest that went way beyond the Gezi park situation. PM Erdogan was blamed for undemocratic practices, such as the imprisonment of students, journalists and politicians, as well as the introduction of laws which many feel limited their freedom.”
In Turkey when the government starts arresting lawyers and starts arresting doctors, do we not have a CIVIL WAR taking place in that nation ?

JPMorgan calls for authoritarian regimes in Europe – huge profits for banks vs ‘austerity’ for people
“First, the paper argues, financial measures are necessary to ensure that major investment houses such as JP Morgan can continue to reap huge profits from their speculative activities in Europe. Second, the authors maintain, it is necessary to impose “political reforms” aimed at suppressing opposition to the massively unpopular austerity measures being carried out at the behest of the banks.”
German TV Exposes – Goldman Sachs – a bank ruling the world
“The decline and fall of New York City as the financial capital of the world losing that distinction to London with Hong Kong nipping at its heal for 2nd place, the corruption within NYC is tainting the image of the United States right down to the Presidency. With NYC bankers remaining the notorious “Untouchables” as they are known globally, their days are numbered far more than anyone realizes. It does not help NYC’s image when the dark corners in which the NY bankers hide are being exposed on German TV.”

“Tomorrow Is The Big Day” (19th June FOMC)
“If the Fed’s economic forecast remains unchanged, the reduction in the amount of QE purchases (a.k.a. tapering ) should commence in September or October. If the forecast is raised, then look for tapering to commence in July or September. If the economic forecast is lowered, then tapering is pushed back to December or 2014. ”
I’m 100% certain it will be the latter.
“Fed In A Box” – Vince Reinhart’s FOMC Probability Matrix
Huge crowds flood Brazil streets in protests venting anger over poor government services
“The wave of protests began over a hike in bus prices, but it was also fed by images of Sao Paulo police beating demonstrators and firing rubber bullets during a march last week that drew 5,000. In Rio, the violent police crackdown on a small and peaceful crowd Sunday near the Maracana stadium incited many to come out for what local news media described as the city’s largest protest in a generation.”
“In Sao Paulo, Brazil’s economic hub, at least 65,000 protesters gathered Monday at a small, treeless plaza then broke into three directions in a Carnival atmosphere, with drummers beating out samba rhythms as people chanted anti-corruption jingles. They also railed against the action that sparked the first protests last week: a 10-cent hike in bus and subway fares.”

Brazil sends national security force to quell protests
“almost a quarter of a million people demand better public services.”
“Shops and banks in Brazil’s largest city, Sao Paulo, were vandalised on Tuesday by groups of masked activists, who fought other demonstrators trying to stop the violence.”

So rather than say ‘yes, we will give the public better services’ they say ‘no, the public will get the iron fist’.

SEC Uses HFT Firm-Designed Tool To Find That HFT Doesn’t Cause Flash Crashes
“So, to summarize, the SEC which admits it was clueless in analyzing the modern, fragmented market (yet which found definitively that the culprit for the May 2010 flash crash was Waddell and Reed, and nobody else, using what technology at the time, nobody knows), uses a platform developed by High Frequency Trading firm Tradeworx… to reach a conclusion that High Frequency Trading firms are innocent of every flash crash resulting from an HFT algo gone haywire…”

Whistleblower Forces China To Come Clean Over (economic) Data Manipulation
Turk – Global Markets & Banking System Face Major Collapse
“As a consequence, interest rates have been rising, even though the Fed is still buying more government paper. The yield on the 10-Year T-note has been over 2% for almost a month in the face of all this Fed buying. We have not seen that happen since early 2012. I take it as a warning sign that the central planners have backed themselves into a corner. The economy remains weak despite all of the years of stimulus, and the markets are now starting to price in rising inflation. So regardless of how Mr. Bernanke tries tomorrow to explain away “tapering,” it is becoming increasingly clear that inflation expectations are not well anchored.”
The Cyprus Bail-In Blows Up: President Urges Complete Bailout Overhaul (Full Letter)
Without enslaving the American people to the 30% interest demanded by the bankers
“Lincoln issued his famous greenbacks to fund the Civil War without enslaving the American people to the 30% interest demanded by the bankers. Lincoln refused to plunge the people of the nation into a debt they could never pay back, and issued his own currency instead.”
“After the Union won the civil war and it was obvious that Lincoln would keep his greenbacks in circulation, he was assassinated.”
“Kennedy issued his US Notes for much the same reason. On June 4, 1963, Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110, which authorized the US Treasury to issue a new form of silver certificate.”
“Kennedy issued $4,292,893,825 of cash money; free of debt and free of interest. It was a sufficient amount to allow the nation to operate without the private Federal Reserve. Just 5 months later, JFK was shot by the “crazed lone nut” Lee Harvey Oswald. Almost immediately after Kennedy’s death, the US Notes were pulled out of circulation and destroyed except for samples in the hands of collectors.”
Who wants to pay 30% interest on the public currency to a private central bank ?

“The men who met in the town of Datta Khel told the local military commander about their jirga, or assembly of tribal elders. But the message apparently did not get to the Americans, or if it did, it was ignored.”
“Two Hellfire missiles shot to the ground and exploded. As Khail looked up to the sky, he remembered, he saw two more streak down. His walkie talkie crackling with a cry for help, he raced to the site.”
“When Khail arrived at the location of the assembly, it was filled with the dying, who were rushed to hospitals, and the dead. For them, Khail had to perform a more macabre task.”
This is what a terror war looks like.

“The investigative journalist Michael Hastings has died at the age of 33 in a Los Angeles car crash. Reporting extensively from Iraq and Afghanistan, Hastings’ widely read stories showed the grim realities of war. His 2010 Rolling Stone article on General Stanley McChrystal, the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, sparked a political controversy after McChrystal and his aides were quoted making disparaging remarks about top administration officials. The article exposed longstanding disagreements between civilian and military officials over the war’s direction, and led to McChrystal’s firing.”

Pest Control: Syngenta’s Secret Campaign to Discredit Atrazine’s Critics
“To protect profits threatened by a lawsuit over its controversial herbicide atrazine, Syngenta Crop Protection launched an aggressive multi-million dollar campaign that included hiring a detective agency to investigate scientists on a federal advisory panel, looking into the personal life of a judge and commissioning a psychological profile of a leading scientist critical of atrazine.”
“The Switzerland-based pesticide manufacturer also routinely paid “third-party allies” to appear to be independent supporters, and kept a list of 130 people and groups it could recruit as experts without disclosing ties to the company.”
Yet another corporate conspiracy.

Oh, and at one point, start calling him by a different name.”

ICSPA – is it time somebody put this organisation under the spotlight?
“I know ex-forces guys sometimes struggle with what to do with their lives once they leave but this is a cracker! An ex-RAFfie with a lot of connections and too much time on his hands appears to have woken up one morning in 2011 and thought “I know what, I’ll set up an organisation to internationally co-ordinate policy-making and policing of anything internet-related worldwide. We’ll get a load of corporate money together and use our contacts to get some political credibility then become the go-to people for more powerful governments and police authorities to get them to implement what we want whilst using the same political clout to bully governments in developing nations to comply, thus bringing the whole of the internet under our control. In the meantime by portraying the internet as a scary place full of nasty people and organisations we’ll easily push ourselves as being the saviour of the innocent internet user, and by giving ourselves an authoritative sounding title governments, businesses and the people will just believe we are actually a legitimate organisation accountable to… well, actually it doesn’t matter who people think we’re accountable to as long as they don’t realise it is in fact nobody! Excellent, now where did I put David Blunkett’s number?!””
“I kid you not! Two years later ICSPA runs out of this office in Chesham, Bucks; they have a video from David Cameron saying why he supports the organisation, they appear to have both Europol and City of London Police in their pockets, they’re establishing a foot-hold in Latin America and they’re given two pages of the official G8 magazine to lobby participating delegates as to why Bitcoin and all new money-transmitting technologies should be banned (using the usual 3-excuse-rhetoric of child porn, terrorism and money laundering), with the exception of the ‘trustworthy’ existing credit card and banking names and technologies thus keeping all internet-related financial transactions in the hands of the existing oligopolies.”
