BRICS prepares world banking revolution ~ link BRICS member-states are preparing a world banking revolution. They are planning to nominate an alternative candidate for the post of the Chairman of the World Bank for the first time in history. BRICS also demands redistribution of quotas in the International Monetary Fund in the near future and intends to study India’s initiative on creating a South-South Bank.

Representatives of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa proposed a reform of the world financial system at their meeting in Mexico City which took place during the conference of G20 finance ministers and heads of central banks.

Greek Lessons: Democracy vs Debt Bondage ~ link ~
It is a truism to say that democracy began with the Greeks – less so to say that it originated in popular rebellion against debt and debt-bondage. Yet, with the Greek people ensnared once more in the vice-grip of rich debt-holders, it may be useful to recall that fact. For the only hope today of reclaiming democracy in Greece (and elsewhere) resides in the prospect of a mass uprising against modern debt-bondage that extends the rule of the people into the economic sphere.

Across virtually all the ancient world, to fall into irretrievable debt was to enter into bondage to the rich. For millennia, the poor typically had no collateral for loans beyond their bodies and their labour. The result in ancient Greece, as Aristotle acknowledged, was that “the poor ... were enslaved by the rich.”[1]

Beginning more than 2,600 years ago, a succession of upheavals by the Athenian poor – or the demos – broke the power of the aristocracy and began a drawn out democratic revolution. Squeezed by debts and the spread of debt-bondage the common people rendered their aristocratic society effectively ungovernable. In 594 BC, in an effort to restore stability, huge concessions were made to the demos: all debts were cancelled and debt-bondage abolished. For the first time, poor men acquired meaningful rights to political participation. And they used those rights to systematically curtail the unaccountable power of aristocrats, accomplished by elevating the popular Assembly and its direct democracy above all other institutions.[2] So interconnected were the principles of democracy and economic justice for the demos that Aristotle identified “the rule of the poor” as the essence of a democratic state. “In democracies,” he explained, “the poor have more sovereign power than the rich.”[3] For this reason, struggles by the rich to increase their social and economic power invariably took the form of struggles against democracy.

Anti-austerity protests sweep through Europe ~ link ~ Anti-austerity protests have been held in the Czech Republic, France and Greece against government economic reforms aimed at dealing with the unprecedented debt crisis plaguing the European Union.

20 Economic statistics to use to wake sheeple up from their entertainment induced comas ~ link ~ The Dow has closed above 13,000 for the first time since 2008, and the mainstream media is declaring that a strong economic recovery is underway.  Barack Obama is telling anyone who will listen that his economic policies are a huge success, and U.S. consumers are piling up astounding amounts of new debt.  Unfortunately, this euphoria about the economy will be short-lived.  None of the long-term problems that are destroying the U.S. economy have been solved.  In fact, there are dozens of statistics that can be quoted that prove that the U.S. economy is in far worse shape than it was when the recession supposedly ended.  If dramatic changes are not made very rapidly, our nation is going to smash directly into an economic brick wall.  Sadly, most Americans are so addicted to entertainment that they have no idea what is about to happen.  Most of them are "sheeple" that are content to trust that the "experts" know exactly how to fix our problems as they continue to enjoy their entertainment-induced comas.  After all, it is much easier to turn on "American Idol" or "Dancing With The Stars" than it is to think about debt ratios and monetary policy.  But that doesn't mean that we should not try to wake the sheeple up.  It just means that it will not be easy.

If you went to the doctor tomorrow and he told you to take some little blue pills without telling you anything else, would you take them?

Of course not.

You would want to know what the little blue pills are for.
But if your doctor told you that you have a deadly incurable disease that is about to kill you, and that the little blue pills are the only cure, then you would definitely be interested in taking them.

Well, it is the same way with the American people.  Until they understand just how sick the economy is, they will not be interested in fighting for a solution.

We need to show all the sheeple out there that the U.S. economy has terminal cancer and is headed for death.
We need to show them that the future of our children and our grandchildren is literally being destroyed.

Way too many Americans are sitting around waiting for the government to save them.

It isn't going to happen.

It is up to those of us that are awake to wake up those that are asleep.

And there are many out there that think that they are awake that are only partially awake.

One very famous author once wrote that "people are destroyed for lack of knowledge", and that is exactly what is happening in America today.  Most Americans simply don't understand what is happening economically, politically, socially, morally or financially in this nation.

Please help me wake the sheeple up.

The following are 20 economic statistics to use to wake sheeple up from their entertainment-induced comas....

GE paid just 2.3% in US Federal taxes over last 10 years on over $81 billion in profits ~ link ~ Crap like this has caused many a revolution in history.  Stirling     

GE was able to rob taxpayers blind during years when their profits declined, all while paying taxes at a rate far below what most hardworking American individuals are saddled with.

Just last year we learned that GE’s 2010 tax return showed that the massive corporation paid no taxes whatsoever on a whopping $14.2 billion in profits. In fact, GE actually reaped $3.2 billion in refunds and tax credits from the government, even with profits as massive as they were.

Six dead, over 100 injured in EF4 tornado in Harrisburg, IL ~ link ~ The National Weather Service's initial assessment of storm damage in Harrisburg, Ill., leads meteorologists to believe an EF4 tornado -- the second-highest on the scale -- struck the Saline County town early Wednesday.

Peak winds from the tornado were likely in the 170 mph range, though the assessment is ongoing, according to the National Weather Service.

The pre-dawn tornado killed six people, smashing hundreds of homes and blowing apart a strip mall and a church as it made its punishing march across the region.

Assad could be classified as a war criminal says Hillary Clinton - with video ~ link ~ Talk about 'the pot calling the kettle black'.  This satanic witch is doing all she can to start WWIII.  Stirling     

Nasty surprises await warmongers in Persian Gulf ~ link ~ link ~  We will quickly see escalation, and counter-escalation and the use of WMD in the coming General Middle East War/WWIII.   Stirling   

"The Sunburn is perhaps the most lethal anti-ship missile in the world, designed to fly as low as 9 feet above ground/water at more than 1,500 miles per hour (mach 2+). The missile uses a violent pop-up maneuver for its terminal approach to throw off Phalanx and other US anti-missile defense systems. Given their low cost, they’re perfectly suited for close quarter naval conflict in the bathtub-like Persian Gulf.”

With its 90-mile range, the Sunburn can be fired from practically any platform, including a flat bed truck, and could hit a ship in the Strait in less than a minute.

Adding this warning, Mark Gaffney says , "The US Navy has never faced anything in combat as formidable as the Sunburn missile.”

He mentions the even more-advanced SS-NX-26 Yakhonts missiles, also Russian-made (speed: Mach 2.9; range: 180 miles) deployed by the Iranians along the Persian Gulf's northern shore.

“Every US ship will be exposed and vulnerable. When the Iranians spring the trap, the entire lake will become a killing field,”

“In the Gulf's shallow and confined waters evasive manoeuvres will be difficult, at best, and escape impossible. Even if US planes control of the skies over the battlefield, the sailors caught in the net below will be hard-pressed to survive. The Gulf will run red with American blood."

As both writers point out, the Iranians will have mapped every firing angle along their Gulf coastline. And the rugged terrain will not make detection easy.

“Shooting fish in a barrel”, but who are the fish this time?

US and Britain Gear Up for War on Iran ~ link ~ The military commands in both the US and Britain have sought increased funding and stepped up deployments of arms and personnel to the Persian Gulf in preparation for an anticipated war against Iran.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Pentagon, acting on the request of the Central Command, which oversees US military operations in the region, has requested the re-allocation of some $100 million in military spending to ratchet up war preparations.

The Journal cast these preparations as defensive measures aimed at countering an Iranian threat to close the Strait of Hormuz, the waterway through which some 20 percent of the world’s exported oil flows. Iran’s threat came in response to trade sanctions and embargoes imposed by the US and Western Europe that amount to a blockade, an act of war, as well as open Israeli threats to bomb the country.

Military Hysteria: America's Never Ending Get-Rich Wars - with video ~ link ~ The US is famous for going to other countries with goals ranging from retaliation to installing democracy to stopping a civil war. And quite often the US government and the military alike are surprised at what they find: that people in those countries don't want them there and, in many cases, will risk or sacrifice their lives to make sure they leave.

We're seeing a new low point in America's longest war, unfolding as we speak - riots in Afghanistan, as citizens there protest the burning of Korans by US military personnel at Bagram airbase. Some American soldiers have been killed and many more Afghan citizens are dying as well. And there's beginning to be a sense that the battle to win the hearts and minds there is simply impossible.

The Triumph of Totalitarian Fascism in the West and the East ~ link ~ But not all sides are equally guilty. The totalitarian fascists in America, Israel, and the West are the criminal aggressors in this clash of civilizations. Their mass murder of innocent Americans on September 11, 2001, is a monstrous crime that they have gotten away with because of their vast media warfare and state propaganda operations.

There has been a planet-wide resistance movement against the mind invaders and truth destroyers in the Pentagon, CIA, Mossad, and MI6. The biggest heart of this civil society movement is in the heart of America--Austin, Texas, the Alex Jones show. But that is only one heart. There are many other hearts around the world that are pumping much-needed truth and knowledge into the global intelligence nervous system.

The global mainstream media has been blocking the flow of information and facts into the global intelligence nervous system since the September 11 state-terror attacks. But they have failed, especially in North America and the West, where most educated citizens are demanding a new investigation into the events of 9/11.

UK Politician Resigns After Saying Israel 'Will Not Go On Forever'

The Guardian reports that Baroness Jenny Tonge, a Liberal Democrat peer, was filmed making the remarks during a student panel last week.

She also went on to say, "One day, the United States of America will get sick of giving £70 billion [$112 billion] a year to Israel to support what I call America's aircraft carrier in the Middle East – that is Israel. One day, the American people are going to say to the Israel lobby in the USA: enough is enough."
