Barak: Iran is fooling the West with readiness to reach deal ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ and also ~ link ~  Barak is trying to fool Israel into doing the bidding of the globalists, to begin World War III, which will destroy the Israeli state.   His demands of Iran are something that Israel would NEVER itself tolerate for even a minute.
Stirling    
 
Barak said that Israel's demands remained a complete stop to enrichment activities in Iran, including enrichment that is taking place to 20 percent and 3.5 percent. Israel, he said, also demands that all of the enriched material, except for a symbolic amount, be removed from Iran, which would also have to agree to an increase in supervision of its nuclear program by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). 
 





UN chief: Deal reached with Iran ~ link ~ Also see ~ link ~ The chief of the UN nuclear agency says he has reached a deal with Iran over probing suspected work on nuclear weapons, and adds that the agreement will be "signed quite soon." Yukiya Amano says some details still need to be worked out. But he told reporters Iranian officials say those will not stand in the way of signing the deal, AP reports. Amano spoke Tuesday on return from Tehran talks on resuming a long-stalled probe into suspicions that Iran secretly worked on developing nuclear weapons.

IDF to use 'Tens of Thousands of Munitions' in the Next War ~ link ~ One of the key troubles with Israel is that there is always a "Next War" because they will not stop expanding into Arab territory, will not stop abusing the Arab civilian population, and will not stop trying to be the overlord of the entire Middle East.  If you take the time to read this entire short article, at the link, you will see the current Israeli thinking on how they intend to fight the next war.  This strategy, well known to the Arabs and Iranians, places everything on a 'hair trigger'.  When war begins in the Middle East, it will quickly become a use it or lose it' event.  Which means that both sides will quickly unload a massive amount of firepower on the other side and that will include, from Day One, a massive amount of weapons-of-mass destruction.    Stirling       
 
Hizbullah has ten times as many rockets as it did when the Second Lebanon War broke out, and Syria possesses hundreds of accurate missiles,  according to Deputy Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Yair Naveh. Naveh said that the IDF will need to make the next war as short as possible because of the vulnerability of the home front, according to Deputy Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Yair Naveh..

"In order to do this we need a first strike that reaches all ranges and can almost bring the war to decision," Naveh told security officials from Israel and abroad in the International Firepower Conference Tuesday.



Obama secretly approves top-of-the-line anti-tank arms for Syrian "rebels" ~ link ~ This is a clear further indication that America/NATO/Israel/GCC intends to continue the war against Syria and to expand it into a General Middle East War and World War III.   Stirling     

The Syrian rebels have received their first “third generation” anti-tank weapons, 9K115-2 Metis-M and Kornet E. They are supplied by Saudi and Qatari intelligence agencies following a secret message from President Barack Obama advising them to up the military stake in the effort to oust Assad...

But his Russian and Iranian military and intelligence advisers are growing less sanguine as they watch foreign military intervention expand step by step. They are warning the Syrian ruler that the advanced missiles reaching the rebels represent the most dangerous development his regime has faced to date. They reckon that, after failing to ignite a full-dress unified rebellion inside the main Syrian cities, the West and the Arab states have turned to equipping anti-Assad rebel forces for pursuing sustained guerilla warfare between the big cities - on the main roads and in rural and mountainous areas.

USAF using counterfeit Chinese electronic parts ~ linkThis exposes USAF aircraft and missiles to the very real danger that in a war the aircraft and missiles employing Chinese parts could receive coded signals to cease working or to self-destruct the airplane/missile...not something that you want to happen to say the least.   Stirling     

Bootleg electronic components have found their way onto the US Air Force’s aircraft. An investigation by the Congress has exposed counterfeit electronic parts being used by major aircraft corporations Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky.
­The two-year probe was conducted by the US Senate Armed Services Committee. Overall, 1,800 cases of counterfeit electronic parts being used have been exposed. 

The Committee concluded that a huge number of fake electronic parts being used in the production of military aircraft, night vision devices, radio stations and GPS navigation modules pose a serious threat to national security.



North Korea vows to boost nuclear 'deterrent' amid US pressure ~ link ~ In my opinion, North Korea is the most insane nation on Earth.   Stirling      

North Korea has warned that it will bolster its nuclear programme and take unspecified counter-measures unless the US eases diplomatic pressure on it. The Foreign Ministry accused the US of persisting in "moves to ratchet up sanctions", state media reported.

Egan Jones rating agency cuts Spain to BB- from BB+ ~ link ~ Love them or hate them, Egan Jones is always about 1 month ahead of the other rating agencies.
 
As a reminder, once all the other rating agencies (and S&P already cut Spain to BBB+ a month ago, just 9 days after Egan-Jones again cut Spain from BBB to BBB-) cut Spain to BBB+ and lower, the country will see its haircut on ECB pledged bonds increase by another 5%, leading to collateral calls. 
 
 
 
The Occupy Movement and the Politics of Educated Hope ~ link ~American society has lost its claim on democracy. One indication of such a loss is that the crises produced on a daily basis by crony capitalism operate within a discourse of denial. Rather than address the ever proliferating crises produced by market fundamentalism as an opportunity to understand how the United States has arrived at such a point in order to change direction, the dominating classes now use such crises as an excuse for normalizing a growing punishing and warfare state, while consolidating the power of finance capital and the mega-rich. Uncritically situated in an appeal to common sense, the merging of corporate and political power is now constructed on a discourse of refusal - a denial of historical conditions, existing inequalities and massive human suffering - used to bury alive the conditions of its own making. The notion that neoliberal capitalism has less interest in free markets than an enormous stake in the dominance of public life by corporations no longer warrants recognition and debate in mainstream apparatuses of power. Hence, the issue of what happens to democracy and politics when corporations dominate almost all aspects of American society is no longer viewed as a central question to be addressed in public life.

As society is increasingly organized around shared fears, escalating insecurities and a post 9/11 politics of terror; the mutually reinforcing dynamics of a market-based fundamentalism and a government that appears immune to any checks on its power render democratic politics both bankrupt and inoperable. The hatred of government on the part of Republican extremists has resulted not only in attacks on public services, the cutting of worker benefits, the outsourcing of government services, a hyper-nationalism and the evisceration of public goods such as schools and health care, but also in an abdication of the responsibility to govern. The language of the market with its incessant appeal to self-regulation and the virtues of a radical individualization of responsibility now offer the primary dysfunctional and poisonous index of what possibilities the future may hold, while jingoistic nationalism and racism hail its apocalyptic underbelly.



Nigal Farage, MEP on Europe's Economic Suicide - with video ~ link ~ I like Farage, he has the guts to 'tell it like it is'.    Stirling     

Dismissing the propaganda-like vision of growth and jobs that is now at the forefront of any and every word from the status-quo seekers that are the European Elite, England's Nigel Farage notes the hypocrisy of the forthcoming summit's agenda. The Euro itself was supposed to create growth and jobs and yet it is actively destroying both of those things - more of the same - as the medicine is killing the patient. He attacks the idea that the world will end if Greece were to exit the Euro - "European leaders say if Greece leaves the sky will fall in - it won't!" - though notes that there will indeed be a difficult few weeks - and when challenged by a Greek politician (who questions what will happen when gas prices for Greeks rise on Farage's suspected 50% devaluation in the Drachma), Nigel, offering the other side of the coin related to real growth, investment, and innovation to compete with expensive imports pointedly remarks: "Give Greece a chance because stuck inside the Euro, you are going to be literally destroyed". 
 



Will China make the Yuan a Gold-Backed Currency? ~ link ~ Larry Edelson – - writes today:
I know for a fact that Beijing wants its yuan to eventually become a gold-backed currency, much like the Swiss franc was originally. Backing the yuan with some gold will certainly help it become a major international currency.
Edelson is a financial adviser who travels frequently to Asia, a former high-volume gold trader who is interviewed a lot in the mainstream  financial media.

Economists: What (or Who) are they good for? - with video  ~ link ~ "Economists today primarily serve the needs of powerful interests at the expense of society in general" is how Robert Johnson - the frighteningly honest Executive Director of INET - describes the self-indoctrinating field of study that remains in such seemingly high regard in the nation. In an excellent and forthright brief interview with Stifterverband, Johnson notes that "Economists are very much accused of 'only seeing the economy through the eyes of the model' as opposed to seeing the economy and building a model as a map of what reality is." And while "when the people become anxious they want the expert to tell them what's going to happen. And they feel good when their anxiety is relieved because they think they understand the future. But if the expert instead of telling the truth is selling snake oil - a false story - when that is unmasked the expert becomes the scapegoat." Overall he believes 'economists' did a great disservice to mankind and suggests a number of approaches to "cleaning up after that". Sadly, he opines, "At the core, economics is about politics and about power, and the question for the economists is whose power are you going to serve as an expert."



The Big Fix: Documentary Exposes BP and US Government on Gulf of Mexico Oil Disaster ~ link ~ One of the world's biggest environmental crimes has been more or less forgotten. This is part of our collective guilt as the world's ecosystem continues its accelerated collapse. But the new documentary film The Big Fix takes a detailed, daring look at what happened in the Gulf of Mexico with BP's Macondo offshore oil drilling rig. The story and facts that emerge are more than disturbing.

The movie is soon getting its major national release in theaters and on Netflix. Viewers will be made to recall the unsettling images of oil slicks, fouled fowl, suddenly unemployed fisher folk, and empty assurances by BP and the Feds.



We must reduce our prison population ~ link ~ There is probably no greater waste of our taxpayer money than the increased incarceration of our population. 

The state of Illinois had a prison population of 7,326 inmates in 1970; in 2012, the number has risen to over 48,000. Over that period of time, the state's population has grown only by 12 percent.



As the Elite fences itself in, Kissenger announces 'Order Out of Chaos' ~ link ~ What the old man is saying here ties neatly into statements he made in the past concerning the concept of seizing crises and upheavals, the causes of which may differ from nation to nation, in order to bring about an international order- thereby following the elite’s golden rule that order is best brought about by chaos. Furthermore, he provides us with a glimpse of the underlying intent he and his fellow-bilderbergers have in mind, stating in so many words that civil unrest- be it economically, politically or socially motivated- must be seized upon in order to merge nations into the desired “international system.”

Cut - Poison - Burn: The Cancer Industry's death agenda ~ link ~ Do take the time to read this one in whole at the link.   Stirling     

As free as many Americans might think they are, there are certain glaring aspects of American life for which individuals are not free to make their own choices, and cancer treatment is one of them. In the sobering documentary Cut Poison Burn, filmmaker Wayne Chesler brings to light the sinister nature of the multi-billion dollar cancer industry, its suppression of any real pursuit of a cure, and its stranglehold on medicine that restricts individuals from choosing their own personalized, alternative forms of treatment.

The documentary follows the journey of the Navarro family, whose young son Thomas, then four years old, was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a highly-malignant form of brain cancer that typically afflicts children. Rather than undergo conventional chemotherapy and radiation, the Navarros instead wanted to pursue an alternative route, which in their case was Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski's non-toxic antineoplaston treatment, which has been shown to be particularly effective at treating brain cancers.

But unless a child is of a proper age to make his own medical treatment decisions, which Thomas clearly was not, then he is required by the medical mafia to undergo the prescribed treatment regimen, which in Thomas' case was chemotherapy and radiation. Even though these forms of treatment are virtually useless at treating medulloblastoma, the state threatened Thomas' parents that if they did not subject him to these barbaric poisons, they would remove him from their custody.
 



Astragalus, the unsung cancer fighter ~ link ~   Astragalus is a traditional Chinese medicinal herb that has been around for over 4,000 years. Astragalus is an adaptogenic, nontoxic herb and plant extract that helps the body resist the damaging effects of stress while restoring normal physiological function. Astragalus aids adrenal function, digestion, metabolism, combats fatigue and increases stamina. Astragalus is very effective in helping people with AIDS and has even proven to have an anti-tumor effect and can increase the efficacy of chemotherapy.

A native plant of China, astragalus is officially known as astragalus membranaceus: AKA Milk Vetch Root and Huang Qi. Astragalus is a perennial plant that grows up to 4 feet tall. The root of the plant has a sweet taste and contains choline, flavonoids, amino acids-gamma aminobutyric acid, canavanine, beta-sitosterol, saponins (astragalosides) and oil. The primary actions of astragalus are adaptogenic and immunomodulating. The secondary actions are anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, cardiotonic, diuretic and hepatoprotective.

Obama donates 7 Alaskan/American Islands to Putin for Zero Dollars

Obama’s State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians. Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin. The seven islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea include one the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. The Russians are also to get the tens of thousands of square miles of oil-rich seabed’s surrounding the islands. The Department of Interior estimates billions of barrels of oil are at stake. The State Department has undertaken the giveaway in the guise of a maritime boundary agreement between Alaska and Siberia. Astoundingly, our federal government itself drew the line to put these seven Alaskan islands on the Russian side. But as an executive agreement, it could be reversed with the stroke of a pen by President Obama or Secretary Clinton. The agreement was negotiated in total secrecy. The state of Alaska was not allowed to participate in the negotiations, nor was the public given any opportunity for comment.
