Israeli lobby now trying to sabotage the Iran-US nuclear talks - with video ~ link ~ Why do we allow this tiny foreign nation to bribe and blackmail our politicians???   Stirling    
 
Having failed to convince Washington to launch a military strike against Iran, Israel lobby in the US is now focusing its efforts to “sabotage” the nuclear talks between Tehran and the world powers, an American professor says.

“In the face of that problem of not being able to mobilize the United States to go to war with Iran, they’re focusing on strangling the economy,” James Petras, Bartle Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology at Binghamton University, New York, told Press TV on Wednesday.

He was referring to reports that the US Senate is ratcheting up pressure on the White House to tighten sanctions against Iran in line with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s demand for more pressure against Tehran.

On Monday, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Robert Menendez (D-NJ) said that the Senate aims to cut Iran’s current oil exports to 500,000 barrels per day.

"This is not the time to loosen sanctions," Menendez said during a meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in New York.

“The Israeli government has very close relations with its proxies in the United States, essentially the principal Zionist organizations, who are very heavily funded and have financed the electoral campaigns and provided direct contributions totaling over 100 million dollars over the last 30 years and actually have financed 230 politicians in the US Congress and over 50 senators,” Petras said.

“So they have bought the US Congress,” he added.

The professor said that new sanctions against Iran would sabotage nuclear talks between Tehran and the six world powers.

Iran held nuclear talks with the United States, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany in Geneva earlier this month. The two sides are set to meet again in Geneva on November 7-8.

“Obama realizes that passing and implementing these resolutions would sabotage the negotiations in the peace process,” Petras said, but he added that “there is no really powerful lobby at this time that has the money and resources that the Zionists have.”

“For the last several years, the Zionist organizations in the United States, AIPAC and I would say at least 52 Jewish Zionist organizations have been active in trying to undermine the Iranian government and strangle its economy,” he noted.

Russia will bring more S-300 air defense systems to EU border in Belarus ~ link ~ This is in response to multiple NATO actions.  Russia is not our natural enemy.  The Warsaw Pack is dead and so is the USSR.  Why do we still have NATO???   Stirling     
 
 
 
NSA tapped the Pope and spied on the Vatican ~ link ~ Well of course we did...after all those 200 or so Swiss Guards are a real danger to the USA...really...sure they are...NOT.  This crap needs to stop.  We are throwing billions and billions of dollars away to spy on people FOR the global banking cartel and the Zionists.  Why not spend this money on bringing JOBS TO AMERICA???   Stirling 
 
 
 
Our invisible revolution ~ link ~ Revolution usually erupts over events that would, in normal circumstances, be considered meaningless or minor acts of injustice by the state. But once the tinder of revolt has piled up, as it has in the United States, an insignificant spark easily ignites popular rebellion. No person or movement can ignite this tinder. 
 No one knows where or when the eruption will take place. No one knows the form it will take. But it is certain now that a popular revolt is coming. The refusal by the corporate state to address even the minimal grievances of the citizenry, along with the abject failure to remedy the mounting state repression, the chronic unemployment and underemployment, the massive debt peonage that is crippling more than half of Americans, and the loss of hope and widespread despair, means that blowback is inevitable.

Larry Summers admits the Fed is in a Liquidity Trap ~ link ~ I recently wrote an article entitled "What Is A Liquidity Trap & Why Is Bernanke Caught In It?" wherein I discussed the definition of a liquidity trap as:
"A liquidity trap is a situation described in Keynesian economics in which injections of cash into the private banking system by a central bank fail to lower interest rates and hence fail to stimulate economic growth. A liquidity trap is caused when people hoard cash because they expect an adverse event such as deflation, insufficient aggregate demand, or war. Signature characteristics of a liquidity trap are short-term interest rates that are near zero and fluctuations in the monetary base that fail to translate into fluctuations in the general price levels."
Importantly, this evidence is mounting that the Federal Reserve has now become trapped within this dynamic.  The boost in asset prices caused by the increased levels of liquidity in the system has benefited the wealthy while doing little to jumpstart the real economy.
 
 
 
Now get ready for an "ice age" as experts warn of "Siberian" winter ahead for UK ~ link ~ He said: “The sun is ‘quietening’ really rapidly. We think it is actually quietening more rapidly than at any time in the last 10,000 years. “So this is a major change. We think lower solar activity does seem to tie up with more cold winters in central Europe and the UK.” 
 
 
Real risk of a Little Ice Age says leading scientist ~ link ~ The severe cold of the ‘Little Ice Age’, a period of harsh winters across the UK and Europe in the 1600s, went hand in hand with an exceptionally inactive sun, says this article on BBC. That period of harsh winters and low solar activity is known as the Maunder solar minimum.
Now a leading scientist from Reading University, Professor Mike Lockwood, warns that the current rate of decline in solar activity poses a real risk of a return of Maunder minimum conditions.
