Martial Law: UK Police Chief Mulls Banning Protests
UK police chief Sir Paul Stephenson is considering whether to ask the British government to ban protest marches altogether in response to last week’s student riots, a move that would place Britain under a de facto state of martial
Although the establishment media in Britain dutifully blamed the protesters for the violent scenes witnessed during the demonstrations, it later emerged that police had been behind a number of provocations that caused the running street battles,..
Stephenson is considering whether to use the Public Order Act in an attempt to ban marches, despite acknowledging the fact that such a move could only exacerbate the situation. Other proposals are to use water cannons to disperse
demonstrators, as well as snatch squads that would literally abduct so-called “trouble-makers” off the streets.


Google: We’ll find info before you know you need it
Google is working on a service that finds information before a user has even started looking for it.
Forget Google Instant, this is about pre-emptively pushing data at users before they know they need it, said Marissa Mayer, Google’s VP of geographic and local services, who was speaking at the LeWeb internet conference in Paris this
Mayer said Google is looking at what she called “contextual discovery” as a way to evolve search – pushing information out to people before they’ve started to look for it, based on factors such as their web browsing history or current location.


iPhone snitch network launched
A new iPhone App with the misleading name ‘PatriotApp’ attempts to draw on the power of the patriot movement, turning smartphone users into a gigantic snitch network.
An app like this is meant to solidify the climate of fear in which our leaders want us to exist. The threat of terrorism must be palpable in order for the ‘War on Terror’ to be justified and to validate all the extreme measures instituted in its name.


Kosovo PM is head of human organ and arms ring, Council of Europe reports
Kosovo’s prime minister is the head of a “mafia-like” Albanian group responsible for smuggling weapons, drugs and human organs through eastern Europe, according to a Council of Europe inquiry report on organised crime.
The report states: “As and when the transplant surgeons were confirmed to be in position and ready to operate, the captives were brought out of the ‘safe house’ individually, summarily executed by a KLA gunman, and their corpses
transported swiftly to the operating clinic.”


In praise of Junk silver
Oh, you do know that only dimes (originally dismes), quarters, halves and dollars (originally eagles) minted in 1964 or before are silver, don’t you?
Nickels dated 2010 and before are an alloy containing 25% nickel, currently valued at 6¢. They may be the small change of the future. Pennies dated 1982 and before contain 95% copper, they’re going for around 2.5¢ at present.



Winter Climate and Winter Economy

The Super La Nina and the Coming Winter
This La Nina appears to be special, at least so far. It is well on its way to being the strongest of these events since the super La Nina of 1955-1956. During that powerful La Nina that lasted two years, the global average temperature fell
nearly one degree Fahrenheit from 1953 to 1956.
The current La Nina is coming on stronger than any in decades. The world is demanding more and more energy to fuel growth even in hard economic times. This winter may test the world energy supplier’s ability to provide it. The resulting increase in demand could produce a spike in energy costs. This could bring more hardship to people who are suffering through this long and deep recession. It remains to be seen if this La Nina equals or exceeds the super La
Nina of 1955/56. Right now El Nino’s colder sister is on the fast track to generate more temperature extremes and a very cold winter in some parts of the world.


Tony Robbins Economic Warning
Editors Note: This is my synapsis of two videos put out by Tony Robbins.
Mr. Robbins has had the ability to work with many financial experts over the years. With that relationship has come the benefit of their foresight into financial situations many of us do not have. Robbins this past August put out a 25 minute message of economic warning. Listed below are warning signs he feels are important enough for one toconsider when evaluating their positions where their money is involved.
1 Record unemployment. Average unemployment is about 35.2 weeks or 8.75 months.
2 Consumer confidence is lowest since fall 2008 and 9-11.
3 Demand for credit is shrinking by the largest percent in 60 years. People have/are paying back more than borrowed right now by 200%.
4 Real estate: lowest rates ever, 4.5%, banks selling more than builders. 68% drop in new mortgages since 2005.
5 Banks: People not borrowing.
6 Businesses not spending
7 Fed has interest rates low, but people are not borrowing.
We are in a credit detox

Dollar at Risk of Becoming ‘Toxic Waste’: Charts
“If the (dollar index) takes out the low that was made roughly a year ago I really think that will not only encourage more sales, it will cause a little bit of minor panic,” Griffiths said. “A year ago it was deemed too cheap, if it goes any lower than that it’s actually become toxic waste.”
Typically the major stock markets see a seasonal decline in September, but this year the month saw the markets rise strongly.
The seasonal upswing should add to any positive momentum being generated by expectations of further monetary easing from the Federal Reserve, Griffiths said.


Willem Buiter: The US Must Prepare For Savage Austerity
In an interview with Tom Keene yesterday, Citi strategist Willem Buiter, alongside Howard Davies chairman of the London School of Economics, said that “savage austerity” is in the US’ future. “The only question was really the timing and the composition.”
Too bad that even the possibility of actual austerity in the US would result with riots so severe it will make the ongoing economic freeze in France seem like the peak of Chinese economic growth.


Real Numbers = Great Depression, French Petro Panic, Silver and Rice, Manganese Adverse Affects

Print Edition

Behind federal government’s lies: real economic numbers prove US in Great Depression
Much of the major news media—as many Americans have finally come to realize—is in collusion with governments at the federal, state and county level. Gone are the days when journalists were true watchdogs over the public till and
promoters of good government. Most news organizations have become corporate organs attached to the government at the hip, and citizens have paid a dear price for this unholy alliance.

Meanwhile the federal government and the Federal Reserve both claim that inflation is virtually non-existent. They have denied any increase in Social Security benefits to retirees based on numbers that both know are fraudulent.

The real seasonally adjusted unemployment rate today hovers at 23 percent.

The horrifying truth is that since 1985 the dollar has lost about 50 percent of its value.

During 2009 the GDP collapsed by a negative 6 percent and even now is running at a negative 1 to 2 percent.


Panic at the pumps: French motorists swamp petrol stations as fuel supplies to main Paris airport cut off
Striking workers have closed down 11 out of France’s 12 plants, sparking fears that the petrol pumps will run dry.
Union bosses yesterday called for a nationwide strike on Tuesday, hoping to galvanise France into a drawn-out confrontation with the government over a proposed rise in the retirement age.
Transport minister Dominque Bussereau tried to reassure drivers that fuel would not run out – but petrol station owners said his message only sent more people rushing to fill up.
Meanwhile, 38 fuel tankers and 11 gas transporters are currently sitting off the Mediterranean coast, unable to offload cargos of crude oil to the biggest refineries around Marseilles.


Jim Rogers says stock up on silver chopsticks and rice
Turning his attention to currencies, Rogers said: “Right now everyone is pessimistic about the dollar, including me, so I wouldn’t sell the dollar right now. In the long run though he believes the dollar will keep going down.
“I am pessimistic long-term but I found in life it’s better being a contrarian than not be,” he said.
Speaking in a Teck Ticker interview on Wednesday, Rogers said: “Central banks around the world are going to print money till we run out of trees”. Investors should protect themselves with real assets, he argues.
“Buy yourself some silver chopsticks or some silver cutlery, and buy yourself some rice, stock up with rice and you will be very rich in 5 or 10 years,” Rogers told India’s Economic Times.


Manganese Can Adversely Affect Childrens Intelligence
According to a report in Science Daily, a new Canadian study shows that children exposed to high concentrations of manganese in drinking water performed worse on tests of intellectual functioning than children with lower exposures.
Soy Infant Formula is LOADED with Manganese!
Yes, researchers have found that soybean plants absorb manganese from the soil and concentrate it, so that its use in soy-based infant formula can result in as much as 200 times the level found in natural breast milk!

The Second American Revolution

August 10, 2009
Gerald Celente. Don’t know him. Look him up. His Trends Research Institute has predicted so many events in the last 20 years that he is worth listening to. The recent re-interest in Tea Parties has not gone unnoticed. Obamacare has been taking the brunt of this frustration of the American people. This frustration covers both parties, or as many think, our One Party system. Those politicians who are listening to their voters are being able to speak, while those who are not are getting booed out of the building. Contrary to controlled media stories, Tea Party people are concerned nonviolent Americans who want their country back.


Swine Flu Vaccines Contain LIVE H1N1 VIRUS!

August 3, 2009
It’s not a typo, the main ingredient in the GlaxoSmithKline and Novartis vaccines contain a LIVE VIRUS, an attenuated virus meaning it’s a weakened form of the swine flu virus. Attenuated vaccines can be deadly and cause virus shedding, when a person is injected with an attenuated live virus the organism moves through the human body possibly infecting the host and then exiting through the feces, mucous membranes and saliva glands of the inoculated person. This is called ‘virus shedding’ and can last for weeks.


Bob Chapman on gold, silver, a bank holiday and the elite

Daily Bell: Regardless of what Western intel can or can’t do, the system is obviously under stress. You’ve said your sources predict a bank holiday. Can you expand?
Chapman: An investigative source as well as three well-placed subscribers told me that a number of US Embassies were being instructed to purchase local currencies. That can only mean that government believes that foreign sources may not accept US dollars as happened in early 2008.
Daily Bell: They would be stockpiling currency to ensure local liquidity?
Chapman: It is not simply an exercise in embassy self-protection. My sources believe that this would be caused by a plunge in the dollar and perhaps even a short bank holiday as a training exercise for a bigger, longer holiday later.


Capricorn One & Network two films to revisit

If you have never seen the mid 1970’s movies Capricorn One or Network, may I suggest doing so sooner than later. Capricorn One is the story of a failing space agency’s Mars landing hoax to keep the funding coming. The astronauts’ families are used to get them to cooperate with the hoax. One of the best illustrations of compartmentalization as a technician discovers an anomaly and one person in the know works to continue the cover-up.
In the film Network you get the famous line “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not gonna take this anymore!” The better nugget in the film is Ned Beatty’s “Corporate Cosmology” speech. Sure films like Enemy of the State are more action packed and look slicker, but you just can’t beat O.J.’s early work and classic quotable movie lines.

These films in part or whole can be found on your favorite video search engine.

Do Seed Companies Control GM Crop Research?

Unfortunately, it is impossible to verify that genetically modified crops perform as advertised. That is because agritech companies have given themselves veto power over the work of independent researchers.
It would be chilling enough if any other type of company were able to prevent independent researchers from testing its wares and reporting what they find—imagine car companies trying to quash head-to-head model comparisons done by Consumer Reports, for example. But when scientists are prevented from examining the raw ingredients in our nation’s food supply or from testing the plant material that covers a large portion of the country’s agricultural land, the restrictions on free inquiry become dangerous.
