We live in a time when to be an alarmist is to be a realist.
Iran attack decision nears, Israeli elite locks down ~ link ~ As the deadline for a decision draws nearer, the public pronouncements of Israel's top officials and military have changed. After hawkish warnings about a possible strike earlier this year, their language of late has been more guarded and clues to their intentions more difficult to discern. "The top of the government has gone into lockdown," one official said. "Nobody is saying anything publicly. That in itself tells you a lot about where things stand."

Last week Netanyahu pulled off a spectacular political surprise, creating a coalition of national unity and delaying elections which everyone believed were inevitable. The maneuver also led to speculation that the Israeli leader wanted a broad, strong government to lead a military campaign.

"I think they have made a decision to attack," said one senior Israeli figure with close ties to the leadership. "It is going to happen. The window of opportunity is before the U.S. presidential election in November. This way they will bounce the Americans into supporting them."

Emerging US-Iran nuclear deal endangers Israel ~ link ~ BULLSHIT!   This is the Netanyahu position and it is all a scam.   Stirling    

US and Iran seek closer ties alongside nuclear program ~ link ~ Another Israeli story line.  If the US government is so determined to 'kiss and make up' with Iran, WHY is it doing all it can to bring down Syria's Assad and to create a war there???   The bullshit level coming from Israel is beyond outrageous.  This tiny nation, that continues to steal land from its neighbors and keeps the Palestinian people in giant concentration camps (Gaza and the other Occupied Territories) is itself the root of so very much of the grave dangers facing the world...  Israel and the Global Banking Cartel.   Stirling     

Congress opens door for US war with Iran ~ link ~
The US House of Representatives has passed a resolution on Iran that moves the United States much closer to a war footing against Iran as many experts and diplomats warn America is ready for attack.

The vote undermines the 5+1 Iranian nuclear talks scheduled for next week, in which the US will participate and which many in the pro-war camp want to sabotage.
Ahead of the vote Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), a tough critic of the resolution and one of the few who voted against it, warned that the US is “getting ready for war against Iran” with Thursday’s vote. 

Israel's Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Weapons ~ link ~ Think about it.  The most aggressive nation in the Middle East, the one with a massive arsenal of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, is not subject to any international sanctions or threats of war, but a nation that has not invaded anyone for almost two centuries with no nuclear weapons is subject to vast international sanctions and is soon to be attacked.  Stirling    

Israel tests new weapons in combat. Against Lebanon in 2006 and Gaza during Cast Lead, it used direct energy weapons, chemical and/or biological agents, and others producing injuries and symptoms medical professionals never previously saw.

For example, bodies with dead tissue had no apparent wounds. Corpses were found shrunken. Civilians had heavy lower limb damage requiring amputations. Nonetheless, unstoppable necrosis followed (death of cells and living tissue) followed by death.

Internal wounds had no trace of shrapnel. Corpses were blackened but not burned. Some badly wounded victims didn’t bleed. The Palestinian health ministry said Israel used a new type explosive in Gaza. It contained toxins and radioactive materials. They burned and tore victims’ bodies from the inside. They also left long term deformations.

A Palestinian doctor accused Israel of using chemical ammunition that burns and injures soft tissue, but can’t be traced by X-rays. Severe internal wounds were reported. Unknown gases believed to be nerve agents were used. Those affected lost consciousness for about 24 hours. They experienced high fevers and muscle rigidity. Some needed urgent blood transfusions.

In Gaza, white phosphorous was used. It burns flesh to the bone. Depleted uranium spread radioactive contamination. Close-range explosives caused severe injuries, requiring amputations. Children had legs cut off, abdomens sliced open, or died because nothing could save them.

NDAA reignites Cold War with Russia - Opens door for Hot War with Iran ~ link

$642 Billion for the Military? This year? You must be kidding!  ~ link With $88 billion authorized to continue the war in Afghanistan. Barbara Lee has introduced a clear amendment (#158) to cut all funding except for the purpose of withdrawing all of our troops safely from Afghanistan. Representatives McGovern, Conyers, Kucinich, Frank and others have introduced strong amendments aimed at stopping the war, preventing a military confrontation with Iran, curtailing the use of drones and cutting the size of the budget. (Not certain which of these amendments the Republican majority will allow on the floor.)

House passes stealth legislation for Israel ~ link ~ Go to Google and type in “H.R. 4133.” You will discover that, apart from a handful of blogs and alternative news sites, not a single mainstream medium has reported the story of a congressional bill that might well have major impact on the conduct of United States foreign policy. H.R. 4133, the United States-Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012, was introduced into the House of Representatives of the 112th Congress on March 5 “to express the sense of Congress regarding the United States-Israel strategic relationship, to direct the president to submit to Congress reports on United States actions to enhance this relationship and to assist in the defense of Israel, and for other purposes.” The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) reportedly helped draft the bill, and its co-sponsors include Republicans Eric Cantor and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Democrats Howard Berman and Steny Hoyer. Hoyer is the Democratic whip in the House of Representatives, where Cantor is majority leader. Ros-Lehtinen heads the Foreign Affairs Committee.

The House bill basically provides Israel with a blank check drawn on the U.S. taxpayer to maintain its “qualitative military edge” over all of its neighbors combined. It requires the White House to prepare an annual report on how that superiority is being maintained. The resolution passed on May 9 by a vote of 411–2 on a “suspension of the rules,” which is intended for non-controversial legislation requiring little debate and a quick vote.

Beware False Flag attack on Chicago NATO Summit by US War Criminal - with video ~ link ~ Imagine that you are an evil advisor to the criminal 1%, and faced with this problem: the 99% are developing geometrically-increasing recognition of the 1%’s “emperor has no clothes” obvious War Crimes and economic looting, despite corporate media’s propaganda to lie and distract from those crimes (full documentation here, PuppetGov video to see it here).

You look to the future and see eventual arrests of those you advise. One recommendation is obvious:
  • deliver a false flag attack greater than 9/11,
  • plant evidence to blame Iran and domestic terrorist “leaders” (who are also the most effective at exposing the 1%’s crimes),
  • implement NDAA 2012 to “disappear” domestic threats to the 1%’s control, now and ongoingly as needed,
  • initiate war on Iran.
Press TV signals jammed on Hotbird Satellite ~ link ~ The hidden powers-that-be are determined to treat the public like mushroom farmers raise their crops: Keep them in the dark and feed them crap!   Stirling   
This is not the first time IRIB signals have been interrupted in recent months.

On March 10, the broadcast of IRIB international channels on the Hotbird satellite was interrupted for two hours.

On January 19, British technicians operating from Bahrain also sent jamming signals to block IRIB channels on the Hotbird satellite, including provincial channels and a number of international channels such as Press TV, Al-Alam, Al-Kowsar, Jam-e Jam and Sahar.

Bill to end indefinite detention fails in US House of Representatives ~ link ~ also see ~ link ~   Government for and by the evil satanic Global Banking Cartel.   Stirling     
A judge may have found unconstitutional the law that allows people to be held indefinitely without trial by the military, but the House of Representatives voted Friday to keep it anyway.

On Wednesday, Federal Judge Katherine Forrest found that the law violates rights to free speech and due process. But House members defended it, ultimately voting 238 to 182 against an amendment to guarantee civilian trials for any terrorism suspect arrested in the United States.

The measure, sponsored by Reps. Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and Justin Amash (R-Mich.), had been backed by a mix of conservatives, moderates and liberals who argued that letting the president decide to detain anyone — including Americans — deemed to be a terrorist was granting the executive too much power. And they argued that with more than 400 terrorists having been tried and convicted in civilian courts while dozens of plots were prevented, the law was unnecessary.

House of Lords - House of Commons Joint Committee on the Draft House of Lords "Reform" Bill ~ link ~ The hidden powers, the globalists, simply cannot stand the fact that the hereditary peers and non-political life peers time and time again act in the interests of the nation instead of the globalists, like the bought-and-paid-for political class.  Hence they are determined to "reform" away any non-political membership in the Upper Chamber.   Stirling

Big Risk: $1.2 Quadrillion Derivatives Market Dwarfs World GDP ~ linkThis is the ultimate big gun for the global banksters to use to destroy the global economy in order to bring about their New World Order.   Stirling     
One of the biggest risks to the world's financial health is the $1.2 quadrillion derivatives market. It's complex, it's unregulated, and it ought to be of concern to world leaders that its notional value is 20 times the size of the world economy. But traders rule the roost -- and as much as risk managers and regulators might want to limit that risk, they lack the power or knowledge to do so.

Engineered austerity coming to America starting with the Post Office ~ link ~ The large debt held by USPS, coupled with exaggerations of wait times and other aspects involved in shipping services, are constantly highlighted as the latest example of how “government is incapable of running anything effectively.” The general public is then subjected to a barrage of “free market” solutions which are, as is almost always the case, nothing more than the fleecing of the taxpayer who will inevitably end up paying more and receiving less while benefiting crony corporations.

The most immediate solutions proposed by the reactionaries are, of course, austerity measures which take the form of closing thousands of rural post office branches, ending Saturday delivery, increasing prices, and downsizing staff.
Police arrest 400 'Blockupy' activists as tensions rise in Frankfurt - with photos ~ link ~ Frankfurt police have detained 400 anti-capitalist protesters ahead of a key conference on monetary policy scheduled for the weekend. With thousands more heading into the city in the coming hours, new clashes are expected. Authorities say anti-capitalists were erecting barricades, vandalizing road signs and blocking traffic at various locations across the city.

Frankfurt – Germany’s financial capital – is home to the European Central Bank (ECB). As the eurozone faces a deepening of the economic crisis following fears that Greece can no longer remain part of the currency bloc, policymakers from EU member states have arrived in the city for two days of intense talks. Meanwhile, up to 30,000 protesters are expected to make their way into the Frankfurt over the weekend.

Thousands rally in Frankfurt ~ link ~ More than 20,000 people have gathered in the German city of Frankfurt in protest against austerity measures implemented to tackle the eurozone debt crisis.

The peaceful rally on Saturday was organized by the anti-capitalist movement known as "Blockupy Frankfurt."

Police said people marched through the city center to protest against the dominance of banks and “untamed capitalism.” 

HFT manipulation? Euro soars as bank run spreads from Spain to the UK ~ linkAs the run on the banks spread in Europe, with 30% of customers pulling cash out of UK branches of Spain’s Santander bank, the Euro spikes on absolutely no news.

While we saw Wall Street banks admitting they  jumped in to prop up Facebook’s opening day IPO crash today, there is no such admission or explanation when it comes to the Euro’s massive spike. That spike of course which defies not only technical and fundamental data but conventional wisdom as well as Greece continues down the path of exiting the Euro while the mass withdrawal of consumer deposits has spread from Greece, into Spain and today into the UK.

This of course raises the specter that some high frequency trading algorithm was unleashed to manipulate the price. With 18,250 cases of HFT market manipulation documented over the last 5 years, including the now infamous silver manipulation scandal  and the 54 second grand rehearsal for a market crash the possibility of such manipulation is not far-fetched.

Unrestrained Stimulus and Draconian Austerity: Two Sides of the Same Coin ~ link ~ The Elite Financial Players Are Manipulating the Game So that They Get the Stimulus ... and the Little Guy Gets the Austerity

Liberal economists and financial wonks say that we need to learn the lesson from the 1930s and stimulate more to unnecessarily avoid falling back into a very deep economic abyss. Conservative economists and financial gurus say that we need to tighten our belts and live within our means, or the tsunami of debt will wipe out our prosperity, and that of our children and grandchildren.

We've repeatedly noted that neither stimulus or austerity can ever work ... unless and until the basic problems with the economy are fixed. But stimulus and austerity are not only insufficient on their own ... they are actually 2 sides of the same coin. Specifically, the central banks' central bank warned in 2008 that bailouts of the big banks would create sovereign debt crises. That is exactly what has happened.
Remember, it is not the people or Main Street who are getting bailed out ... it is the giant banks. A study of 124 banking crises by the International Monetary Fund found that propping up banks which are only pretending to be solvent often leads to austerity:
Artificial sweeteners linked with Preterm Delivery ~ link ~ Sugar sweetened beverages such as sodas have received a wide-scale bad reputation for their negative impact on health. All the while, diet sodas are falsely promoted as a healthier alternative. But artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, used in diet soda, have also been tied to numerous health complications, with one study linking artificial sweeteners to premature delivery.

Although some attest to the safety of artificial sweeteners like aspartame, these sweeteners have actually been shown to cause considerable harm.

Bahraini regime forces attack protesters again ~ link ~ Bahraini regime forces have attacked anti-regime demonstrators in the western village of Shahrakan.
The Saturday attack against Bahraini protesters came ahead of the 13th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of rights records concerning 14 countries, including Bahrain, scheduled to be held in Geneva from May 21 to June 4.

Meanwhile, the Saudi-backed Bahraini forces continue their violent crackdown on peaceful anti-regime demonstrations.

Bahraini police used sound grenades and tear gas to disperse a similar demonstration near the capital, Manama, on May 18.
