Two eras of financial globalization ~ link ~ It only makes sense if you "follow the money" and understand the forces who benefit and organize all of this.  Even then some things just don't make good sense, unless you understand that this is like the old Star Trek "Space Chess" game that is played on multiple levels at the same time.  In this real life game the top level is a Spiritual one that goes back to a much earlier time and the fall of one-third of the angelic beings, with the fallen ones following Lucifer instead of God.  Then and only then does the insanity begin to make sense.   Stirling

Netanyahu to AIPAC: Only credible military threat will stop Iran ~ link Dear old Bibi wants war so bad he can taste it.  He will get his demonic way soon enough.   Stirling     

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke via satellite on Monday to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's policy conference.

Netanyahu said that sanctions on Iran have not worked and that a credible military threat is needed to stop its nuclear drive. "Iran still hasn't crossed the red line, but it is getting closer," he said.  Netanyahu said Iran is using negotiations with world powers in effort at "running out the clock." 

Americans - Like Nazi-era Germans - Don't Notice That All of Our Rights Are Slipping Away ~ link ~
In the classic history of Nazi Germany, They Thought They Were Free, Milton Mayer writes:
“What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.
“This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.
The German citizens were boiling frogs … the water heating up so gradually that they didn’t realize they had to jump out of the pot to safety. Because the exact same thing is happening to Americans (fear of terror makes people stupid no matter what country they live in), let’s remember exactly what we’ve lost in recent years …

Britain's Police State: The Manufacture of "Surveillance by Consent" ~ link ~ Do take the time to read all of this one at the link.   Stirling    

It’s not often that you get to witness the birth of a new philosophy but that is what we are told is at the heart of the new Surveillance Camera Code of Practice published by the UK’s Home Office this month [2]. Drum roll please, here it is, the new philosophy – “Surveillance by Consent”.
Now as new philosophies go it’s not the best and it’s not really new, nor is it a philosophy. In fact it’s more of a slogan, or more precisely a propaganda slogan. And what it contains a ready-made judgement to save you the trouble of thinking about the issue at hand, in this case surveillance. Surveillance you are told is by consent. You need not worry how consent is achieved or what that really means. You can rest easy knowing that the word “surveillance” which was sometimes considered controversial now has a positive sounding partner “consent” – which is a good thing. Hooray that’s that thorny issue sorted.
“In our time, political speech and writing are largely the defence of the indefensible [...] Thus political language has to consist largely of euphemism, question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness”
‘Politics and the English Language’, George Orwell (1946) [3]
Not only has the Home Office created a “new philosophy” they’ve also launched a consultation process [4] into the new Surveillance Cameras Code of Practice. This is so that they can say the people were asked what they thought and their views were taken into account. Perhaps that’s what “surveillance by consent” is about. Except hardly anyone knows there is a consultation and even fewer will bother responding and if they do it’s unlikely they’ll be listened to unless they support the government/Home Office position. Perhaps that’s what “surveillance by consent” is about. We’re getting warmer.

Netanyahu may be forced to form coalition iwth Lapid and Bennett ~ link ~ Senior Habayit Hayehudi officials hint second meeting between PM and Bennett points to a thawing in their relationship, but no change in Bennett's stance on Lapid; Likud officials believe Netanyahu may have to give up on ultra-Orthodox.
