Prepare: World Food Prices and Shortages

 

China has to increase its domestic production of corn, rice and wheat to meet demand for 2011.
The US still supplies two thirds of the world's corn exports, but with oil at $84 a barrel, may be tempted to divert corn oil to biofuel.
South America and Russia have had weather problems which are leading to lower crop yields.
The dollar is weaker than it was two years ago making its purchasing power less.
Read more here and here.
What does it all mean?
In 2007, rice shortages led to riots in other countries. The rising price of food, which immediately effects one fifth of the worlds population due to poverty, leads to shortages and domestic disturbances.
Remember the shortage of rice in the markets a few years ago?
If - key word - you can, it might be a good time to stock up on staples like rice, corn meal and flour as all may go up dramatically in price. Rice should always be purchased in 25 or 50 pound bags. Flour is good to buy in bulk, but consider a grain mill and purchasing wheat as flour begins to go rancid once it has been milled.
As always, store wheat and rice in buckets and seal them up good - they should last for years.
If is the key word. Don't go into debt or panic buy because of the news. Purchase only what you can safely afford and what you will eat.
Watch the news carefully in 2011 regarding food supplies, prices and the price of oil. These be real trends to watch next year.

Prepper’s New Years Resolutions

 

new-years-resolutions-for-preppers

Yes, it’s that time of year again. That time to make those New Year’s Resolutions. Those promises we make to ourselves for the upcoming year, which many of us never keep. The “I’m going to lose weight… I’m going to exercise more… I’m going to eat healthier… I’m going to be on time for work everyday… etc.” I think we’ve all been there.

Well this year, why not consider adding some or all of the following resolutions, designed for the prepper-minded to complete. This is also a great list for beginners to get their feet wet and get started in prepping. While resolution #4 may be difficult (but important!), the rest of them should be fairly easy to complete.
#1 Get a Disaster/Emergency Binder completed. In a previous post titled ‘Disaster Preparedness Binder‘, we discussed the importance of having a binder handy in your home for all family members to be able to reference. Especially if you have latch-key kids or anyone in the house who may not remember all the right things to do in an emergency, this binder could literally be a life saver.

The binder should include step by step instructions (with photos) of how to shut off the gas, water and electricity leading to your house, which could prevent a real disaster from occurring. Include a list of emergency contacts (including insurances, doctor, etc..) along with a list of pre-determined items to take with you if you and your family had to evacuate.
#2 Get a 72 hour kit in ALL of your vehicles. In a previous post ‘72 Hour kit‘ we discussed the importance of having a 72 hour emergency kit in your vehicle, along with a video showing one example of a home-made kit. This should be a must for everyone. The reality is that you never know when you may become stranded. Maybe not for 72 hours, but the contents of a kit can provide much needed comfort even you are stuck for a few hours in a snow storm or even a commute nightmare!

There have been a few nights when our kit provided us with an impromptu dinner in the car as we waited for a bridge to reopen during our commute home. Just remember to replenish what you use! And don’t forget to keep good quality maps in your vehicle, as discussed in this post, ‘Maps and Direction‘.
#3 Get your food storage up to at least a 30 day supply. Even if you are struggling financially you can still take advantage of sales and coupons to increase your food storage. Not only will this give you a food supply, but you will save money in the long run as prices will only keep increasing.

There are many posts throughout our site regarding food storage, such as, ‘Store the Food You Will Eat“. Please reference them and build your storage. Set a goal to have a 30 day supply built up within 2 months. That’s 2 months to load up…..a completely doable resolution!
#4 Get yourself out of debt! This one may be a tough one for some of you. But you have to start somewhere. Look at your spending habits, and come up with ways to reduce your expenses. Then put that money towards paying off your debt. You can reference some previous posts such as ‘3 Simple Ways To Save More Money‘, or ‘Survival Preparedness With Limited Resources‘, and ‘Kill All Credit Card Debt‘, which you may find helpful.
If you are a beginning prepper, we wish you success in starting your preps in 2011. If you are an experienced prepper, then good for you, and keep up the good work!

Have a Happy and SAFE New Year from both of us at Modern Survival Blog!

CHINA PREPARES FOR WAR WITH NEW HIGH-TECH WEAPONRY

 

In a move which has “shaken the aviation industry,” China apparently has already flown its new J-20 stealth fighter airplane in what is called a “big step forward for the Chinese air force.” The “experts” in the aviation industry hadn’t expected China to be able to fly such an advanced aircraft for another decade! Since Russia is also flying a T-50 stealth prototype, the first link asks: “Is this the end of the US dominance of the air?” Ominously, this development indicates China is developing its military power far more rapidly than the deceived US “experts” thought possible. Even more ominous is the fact that President Obama and his military “braintrust” cancelled the American F-22 warplane (the most advanced warplane in the world) on the basis of the flawed estimate that the Chinese J-20 airplane would not be ready for another ten years. Some think that the Chinese are pretending to have the J-20 ready for operational status, but given China’s almost limitless financial resources to build anything it wants, I’ll bet the F-20 is becoming operational.

Some readers will recall that the Obama administration cancelled the already in-production F-22 to wait for a later production run of the less-capable (but cheaper) F-35. However, cost overruns and delays on the F-35 airplane make one wonder if the F-35 will ever be built at all. Given the cost overruns on the F-35, it is now evident that the Obama administration made a colossal blunder in cancelling the F-22 warplane. They cancelled the F-22 warplane on a major underestimatation of China’s ability to launch their own advanced warplane and a very erroneous concept of what the F-35 will eventually cost. It now seems evident that the only wise choice would be to restart production of the F-22 which is not only a more capable warplane than the F-35, but the F-22 will also likely prove cheaper in the long run because it is already in production while the F-35 is bogged down in cost-overruns and production delays. The second link below documents the problems besetting the F-35 program and the fact that it has already failed in its original mission to be a cheaper fighter to build and maintain than the warplanes it was designed to replace.

This situation reminds me of an event in the administration of President Jimmy Carter. In a colossal blunder, he cancelled the B-1 bomber program, but, thankfully, the American voters hurled Carter out of office after one term and replaced him with the much more capable and realistic Ronald Regan, who quickly restarted the B-1 bomber program so the American Air Force would not be left without a modern bomber in its fleet. Hopefully, Obama and his military decision-makers will have the sense to restart the F-22 production line and cancel the F-35 warplane, now that it is evident that the Chinese are bringing into production a warplane to rival the F-22 ten years ahead of expectations.

The third link reports that an American admiral has stated that China “had achieved ‘initial operational capability’” of its ballistic missile specifically designed to sink all US aircraft carriers in World War III. This Chinese missile was built to hit moving US aircraft carriers “with pinpoint precision,” and previous posts at this website have warned about this new Chinese missile’s ability to sink US carriers. The link states soothingly that “Years of tests are probably still needed before the [new Chinese] missile can be fully deployed (emphasis added).” Note that word “probably,” which means that this assessment is just a guess. I wouldn’t be surprised if this rosy assessment originated with the same intellectual drones who thought China couldn’t fly its J-20 stealth fighter for another decade.

Two things are clear: (A) China is proceeding at breakneck speed to develop a military force which can defeat the United States in a future global war, and (B) the Obama administration “doesn’t get it.” Americans better hope someone in the White House and Congress gets their head out of the sand and faces facts before it is too late.

Unfortunately, the key “latter day” prophecy in Ezekiel 38-39 strongly infers that the USA and the West will not grasp the extreme danger they face until World War III begins with a surprise attack by Russia, China, Iran and all their global allies against the USA, NATO and all their global allies. Ezekiel 38:10-12 describe a “Pearl Harbor-type” surprise attack that takes the target nations completely unawares. The King James Version (KJV) of the Bible states in verse 11 that the target nations are dwelling “safely,” but the Hebrew word “betach” translated “safely” in Ezekiel 38:11 can also be translated “carelessly.” Indeed, the Hebrew word “betach” is translated “carelessly” in this very same prophecy in Ezekiel 39:6. I Thessalonians 5:3 also prophesies that a “sudden destruction” will occur at the end of our age when people mistakenly think they dwell in “peace and safety.” Ezekiel 38-39 and I Thessalonians 5:3 both describe events at the end of our “latter day” period of time. I think it is evident that the “sudden destruction” that befalls a complacent mankind at the end of our age is the Gog-Magog attack of Ezekiel 38-39.

China (as well as Russia and Iran) are rapidly preparing for war against the USA and the West. The USA and the West are under a “strong delusion” that they are not in dire danger. If you want a detailed biblical perspective on how World War III will begin, unfold and end, I invite you to read my article, What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveal about a Future World War III. God has much to say in biblical prophecies about the roles and fates of modern nations in the age-ending Gog-Magog war.

Hopi & Other Indian Prophecies

 

By Paul A Drockton

“The Hopi Indians, which means good, peaceful, or wise, come from a group of Southwestern people called Pueblo, but their language is different.  They live in northeast Arizona at the southern end of the Black Mesa.  A mesa is the name given to a small isolated flat-topped hill with three steep sides called the 1st Mesa, 2nd Mesa, and the 3rd Mesa.  On the mesa tops are the Hopi villages called pueblos.  The pueblo of Oraibi on the 3rd Mesa started in 1050, and is the oldest in North America that was lived in continuously.  They live in pueblos that are made of stone and mud and stand several stories high.

The Kivas are an underground chamber in the pueblo home that they used to talk and have religious ceremonies in.  They used the kivas for 100 years.  The center of the floor had a fire pit.  You had to climb down a ladder to get to the south end where a bench was placed for spectators.  At the north end was a small hole in the floor as a reminder of sipapu.” (Source)

“One of the most fascinating set of prophecies comes out of the Hopi nation located in the Southwestern United States.  Many prophecies foretold by the Hopi appear to have come true.  Some of these are:

“The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder. (PD: Guns)

This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes — the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies.”

This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes — the coming of the white men’s cattle.” (PD: Longhorn Cattle)

This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.”  (Railroad tracks)

This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider’s web.” ( Telephone/Telegraph lines)

This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.” (Highways-Mirages)

This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it.” (Gulf Oil Spill)

This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom. (Hippies?)

And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease. (Skylab?)

“These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands — with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying.

Overall, the theme of Hopi prophecy is that the Earth is going to soon go through a great purification and that humanity can make the decision as to how extreme this purification will be.  Their belief is that the world goes through a period of destruction and renewal and that we are about to enter into a new age, the 5th world (or 6th depending upon the source).” (Source)

Other Indian Prophecies:


“When Deganawidah was leaving the Indians in the Bay of Quinte in Ontario, he told the Indian people that they would face a time of great suffering. They would distrust their leaders and the principles of peace of the League, and a great white serpent was to come upon the Iroquois, and that for a time it would intermingle with the Indian serpent as a friend.

This serpent would in time become so powerful that it would attempt to destroy the Indian, and the serpent is described as choking the life’s blood out of the Indian people. Deganawidah told the Indians that they would be in such a terrible state at this point that all hope would seem to be lost, and he told them that when things looked their darkest a red serpent would come from the north and approach the white serpent, which would be terrified, and upon seeing the red serpent he would release the Indian, who would fall to the ground almost like a helpless child, and the white serpent would turn all its attention to the red serpent. The bewilderment would cause the white serpent to accept the red one momentarily…

The white serpent would be stunned and take part of the red serpent and accept him. Then there is a heated argument and a fight. And then the Indian revives and crawls toward the land of the hilly country, and then he would assemble his people together, and they would renew their faith and the principles of peace that Deganawidah had established. (More)”

My Vision of the Indians:


I saw that the Indians had grown extremely angry with America’s leadership and blamed them for poisoning their people with alcohol, gambling and other vices. I saw the Russians and Chinese meeting secretly with some of the Indian Tribes and provide them with the most modern and advanced weaponry. I saw the Indians waging war and destroying many white Americans. Once their work of death was completed  and their vengeance exacted, I saw them have a mighty change of heart and accept a new Spiritual Leader and the purest form of Christianity.

Many were sorry for their murders and swore to never raise the sword again. These buried their weapons of war. I saw that they gathered to the center of the land to hear the words of someone they called the “Great Teacher”, who taught them the truth about Jesus Christ.

I saw them build a great city that was beautiful beyond description, and there teach the true principals of science, agriculture, and the elements. They were extremely gifted in the knowledge of all things physical and helped transform this entire earth into a Garden of Eden.

I learned that the Indian Race were the true stewards of this earth and that if the earth were to be restored to its previous unblemished state, it would be through them.

Conspiracy Theory With Jesse Ventura-Apocalypse 2012

 

I remember years ago when someone talked about the Mayan Calendar and what it meant, people would roll their eyes and hum the theme song from the twilight zone. Not anymore and it appears this has struck up some interest from none other than Jesse the body Ventura. This one is noteworthy enough to stand alone.

My First Thrift Town Experience

 

Permalink
thrift-town-has-quality-used-clothes-for-cheap
My following experience is a perfect fit for the recession-proof-household category, and anyone looking for bargains.

I have been living in the same area for a little more than a decade and have probably driven past a particular medium size building storefront on the main drag about 5,000 times, and had never stopped in to check it out. Until the other day.

This store is called “Thrift Town“. My wife had stopped by there many times and had been trying to get me to check it out, while my neighbor visits the store regularly and is always returning home with amazing bargains. The store itself is mostly filled with racks and racks of clothing, men – women – kids – all sizes – all types. There are also a fair number of miscellaneous items that are not clothes.

I finally gave in the other day, and checked it out. You see, all along I had this idea in my head that the clothes at these type of bargain stores, being “used”, were for other people, not me. I’m not sure why I had this mental block, especially being one myself to look for bargains. For some reason, the thought of wearing another persons clothes, didn’t sit right with me – as if the clothes would be dirty or have “germs” on it or something. I was wrong.

When I started browsing through the mens racks, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Most of the clothes were in excellent condition, many of them hardly showing any signs of wear, while a surprising number of them were brand name labels. They were perfectly clean, and if I didn’t know any better, many of them could have been on racks in “real” clothing stores.

Now here is the best part. Talk about a bargain… every single mens shirt in the place had a price tag of either $1.99 or $2.99! What? Really?

The pants, the shorts, the sweaters, almost everything was priced the same, pretty much the most you would pay is $2.99!

After sifting through the enormous quantities of clothes, all very well organized by sizes, I walked out with a handful of shirts and shorts that cost me about $25. One of the shirts was even a Nordstrom polo shirt, in near perfect condition. These same clothes were probably worth at one time (not too long ago), about $150 or more.

The store appears to have a great business model, was very busy, and they appear to have about 15 locations in 4 western states. I have no idea if the other stores operate similarly (I assume that they do), and this isn’t an endorsement of the company itself.

However, it made me think about how there are probably other similar stores in the country, just waiting for you to stop by and pick up some deep bargains.

Even though most of us can afford to buy new clothes at the big name stores, you might be surprised at what you might find at a bargain outlet like this one, especially when looking for casual wear.

Why not look for a store like this in your area, and Save Some Cash by buying “almost new”?

Rothschild-Sponsored Third Party Effort Unveiled

 

Vatic Note: Finally, a truly indepth identification of even more subversive players in the Khazar Zionist banking cartel that has infiltrated and manipulated our nation, government, agencies, dept of defence, secretary of state and other congressional staffs in order to control policy and agenda, and its a full explanation of why the "people" are no longer heard or listened to. WE are truly foreign occupied country now by a nation that claims to be an ally but has murdered more Americans than all the muslim nations put together, and the job is to rid us of these "MASTERS OF DECEPTION", first through EXPOSURE, and then through whatever it takes to kick them out of here for good, Iceland and Argentina ring a bell??? Iceland was the "Mouse that Roared" and we must become the tiger that roared.

LATEST IN AN ONGOING SERIES
Yes, the Rothschild dynasty-connected billionaire families and financial groups who own the mass media in America—interlocked with the banking interests controlling privately owned Federal Reserve System that dominates the world economic system—are planning to spring a “centrist” third party on the American people.
All-new revelations now appearing in the self-styled “mainstream” press fully confirm what AMERICAN FREE PRESS—alone among the media—first asserted seven months ago in a four-page exclusive special report published in its May 31 issue.
The opinion pages of the two most powerful newspapers in America—The New York Times and The Washington Post—have been rife with repetitive rhetoric about the need for the American people to reject both “the left” and “the right” and stand behind “centrists,” who will “end partisan gridlock.” But there has also been—behind the scenes—an ongoing, long-standing, carefully crafted scheme to set a “centrist” party in motion.
As AFP noted on Nov. 15, the first formal notice came in The New York Times on Oct. 3, when influential columnist Thomas L. Friedman, generally perceived as a “liberal,” noted grandly in a column entitled “Third Party Rising” that he knew of two separate efforts to launch such a “centrist” movement which he made clear was something he endorsed. Friedman tantalized readers by mentioning no specific names, but it was clear Friedman was writing from an “insider” standpoint.
On Nov. 28, writing in The Washington Post, Pulitzer Prize-winning “conservative” writer Kathleen Parker finally and formally lifted the veil of secrecy surrounding the third party venture in a commentary entitled, “Who will lead the centrists?” Her column revealed a new group, called “No Labels,” was being launched. Asserting “dissatisfaction with Washington’s systemic failings,” Ms. Parker wrote that “when the porridge is either too hot or too cold, the moment for something in between is ripe,” adding that “centrism has a place at the table by virtue of the sheer numbers of middle Americans, the depth of their disgust and the magnitude of our problems.”
Ms. Parker concluded that “There’s little appealing about either party dominated by a base that bears little resemblance to who we are as a nation or the way most of us live our lives. . . .” She then asked the question: “What if there were an alternative?” and added pointedly:
“All that’s missing from a centrist movement that could be formidable is a leader. Anyone?”
The Post columnist noted that among the key financial backers of No Labels is James Tisch. Although grass-roots Americans who might be attracted to a “third” party alternative probably don’t recognize his name, Tisch is a member of the billionaire family which grabbed control of the CBS media conglomerate in 1986, asserting its purpose was to ensure especially favorable coverage of Israel at a time of growing uneasiness with Israel’s Middle East intrigues.
An influential figure beyond question, Tisch has been president of the Jewish Communal Fund, was founding chairman of the Jewish Leadership Forum and serves on the executive committee of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the New York affiliate of the London-based Royal Institute of International Affairs, the foreign-policy-making arm of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
To underscore the importance of the No Labels venture, The Washington Post followed up Ms. Parker’s commentary by one published on Dec. 3 under the title “A grass-roots answer to gridlock,” written by two of the high-level founders of No Labels.
The two figures in question—a “liberal” Democrat and a “conservative” Republican—demonstrate the ostensible bipartisan (and distinctly internationalist) nature of the “centrist” effort: David Frum, a former special assistant and speechwriter to President George W. Bush and William Galston, a former domestic policy advisor to Bill Clinton.
Frum—a neo-conservative pro-Israel hard-liner (and hardly a “centrist”)—is infamous for coining the term “Axis of Evil,” which he inserted into a speech he wrote for Dubya Bush, who popularized the phrase as part of the “war on terrorism.” But, more notably, Frum once published an extended attack on nationalists who reject American globalism and warmongering (which just happen to be the central components of the New World Order agenda).
Likewise, the ties of Frum’s No Labels colleague, Galston, further illustrate the origins of the “centrist” scheme being unleashed. Galston is now a courtier to the publicly little-known, but globally influential Rothschild- allied billionaire Zilkha family and holds the chair in “governance studies” at the Brookings Institution, a post funded by Baghdad-born New York-based Ezra Zilkha, another key figure in the Council on Foreign Relations.
The heir to Khedori Zilkha—once described by The New York Sun as “a towering figure who bestrode the financial landscape of the Middle East, Europe, America and Asia and became an important player in international banking”—Ezra Zilkha was described by the Sun as “a living legend” in his own right, who assessed his own ancestry thusly: “My family were proud members of the Jewish community that Nebuchadnezzar established. When the Babylonian captivity ended and many Jews returned to Jerusalem, my ancestors stayed behind. I am always conscious of history. My sensibilities are rooted in antiquity.”
In their Post commentary, Galston and Frum announced that No Labels is engaged in organizing in every state and congressional district and that there will be a major national meeting held in New York on Dec. 13. They also revealed the underlying propaganda nature of their program. Over the next two years, No Labels operatives will be taking to task any and all who do not abide by their agenda. According to Galston and Frum:
They will highlight those officials who reach across the aisle to help solve the country’s problems and criticize those who do not. They will call out politicians whose rhetoric exacerbates those problems, and they will establish lines that no one should cross. Politicians, media personalities and opinion leaders who recklessly demonize their opponents should be on notice that they can no longer do so with impunity. . . .
In short, the purpose of No Labels will be to enforce a new “political correctness” enforced by public and media pressure, ensuring that anyone who goes beyond the approved “pale” and ventures into rhetoric and political discussion deemed unseemly will be held to account, subjected to widespread opprobrium.
For example, those who question the official government version of the 9-11 terrorist tragedy, or raise concerns about U.S. bias in favor of Israel in the conduct of Middle East policy, or object to unending budget-busting foreign military ventures, will be savaged as inimical to American national interests.
Frum and Galston claimed No Labels is “not a nascent third-party movement” nor a “stalking-horse for an independent candidacy” and that “it is not a front for anyone’s agenda.” However, the obvious political nature of the venture—which includes the formation of political action committee fundraising efforts—belies these protests. No Labels is clearly what it appears to be, another attempt to internationalize and bankrupt America with Israel coming out on top.
A review of the No Labels website at nolabels.com lists a growing array of “advisors” who constitute a broad-ranging selection of journalists, pundits and publicists— few nationally known but all of whom have outreach in their own particular realms. And this marks a movement that could be especially influential.
The clique of media voices promoting the “centrist” movement has been hyping rhetoric referencing “American national greatness” and “American exceptionalism”—which rings soundly in the hearts of patriotic Americans—but these are terms that have a deeper meaning than might appear.
In fact, these terms have their origins in the writings of a host of so-called “ex-Trotskyite” agitators—now called “neo-conservatives”—who have energetically worked to suppress traditional American nationalism in the effort to remake the United States into a globe-straddling empire with the blood and treasure of the American people used to set in place a New World Order. The “conservative” internationalists and the “liberal” internationalists have bound together to work to bring this into being, and the “centrist” endeavor is at the foundation of what can only be described as a conspiracy, vastly inimical to America’s interests.

Almost Everything Is A Crime In America Now: 14 Of The Most Ridiculous Things That Americans Are Being Arrested For

 



Doesn't it seem like almost everything is becoming a crime in America now? Americans are being arrested and charged with crimes for doing things like leaving dog poop on the ground, opening up Christmas presents early, not recycling properly, farting in class and having brown lawns. But is it healthy for our society for the police to be involved in such silly things? Every single day the United States inches closer to becoming a totalitarian society. While there are some that would welcome this shift, the truth is that throughout history the societies that have experienced the greatest economic prosperity have all had at least a certain level of freedom. Business thrives when people feel free to live and work. When a government tightens the grip too much many people just start shutting down. Just look at places like North Korea. Even though the rest of the world is sending them huge amounts of food starvation is still quite common in that totalitarian regime. That is why it is so disturbing that it seems like almost everything has become a crime in America now. As we continue to criminalize relatively normal behavior our slide toward becoming a totalitarian state will only accelerate.

We are throwing anyone and everyone in prison these days. It is getting absolutely ridiculous. Today, the United States leads the world in the number of prisoners and in the percentage of the population in prison. The United States has 5% of the world's population, but approximately 25% of the world's incarcerated population.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, as of the end of 2009 a total of 7,225,800 people were either on probation, in prison or on parole in America.

That is a sign of a very, very sick society. Either we have a massive crime problem or the "control grid" that our leaders have erected for us is wildly out of control.

Or both.

But how in the world are we supposed to have a healthy economy if our entire nation is being turned into one gigantic prison?

Sadly, it is not just hardcore criminals that are being rounded up and abused by authorities these days. The following are 14 of the most ridiculous things that Americans are being arrested for....

#1 A Michigan man has been charged with a felony and could face up to 5 years in prison for reading his wife's email.

#2 A 49-year-old Queens woman had bruises all over her body after she was handcuffed, arrested and brutally beaten by NYPD officers. So what was her offense? The officers thought that her little dog had left some poop that she didn't clean up.

#3 A 56-year-old woman who was once a rape victim refused to let airport security officials feel her breasts so she was thrown to the floor, put in handcuffs and arrested.

#4 In Milwaukee, one man was recently fined $500 for swearing on a public bus.

#5 Several years ago a 12-year-old boy in South Carolina was actually arrested by police for opening up a Christmas present early against his family's wishes.

#6 In some areas of the country, it is now a crime to not recycle properly. For example, the city of Cleveland has announced plans to sort through trash cans to ensure that people are actually recycling according to city guidelines.

#7 A 12-year-old girl from Queens was arrested earlier this year and taken out of her school in handcuffs for writing “Lex was here. 2/1/10" and “I love my friends Abby and Faith" on her desk.

#8 Back in 2008, a 13-year-old boy in Florida was actually arrested by police for farting in class.

#9 The feds recently raided an Amish farmer at 5 AM in the morning because they claimed that he was was engaged in the interstate sale of raw milk in violation of federal law.

#10 A few years ago a 10-year-old girl was arrested and charged with a felony for bringing a small steak knife to school. It turns out that all she wanted to do was to cut up her lunch so that she could eat it.

#11 On June 18th, two Christians decided that they would peacefully pass out copies of the gospel of John on a public sidewalk outside a public Islamic festival in Dearborn, Michigan and within three minutes 8 policemen surrounded them and placed them under arrest.

#12 A U.S. District Court judge slapped a 5oo dollar fine on Massachusetts fisherman Robert J. Eldridge for untangling a giant whale from his nets and setting it free. So what was his crime? Well, according to the court, Eldridge was supposed to call state authorities and wait for them do it.

#13 Once upon a time, a food fight in the cafeteria may have gotten you a detention. Now it may get you locked up. About a year ago, 25 students between the ages of 11 and 15 at a school in Chicago were taken into custody by police for being involved in a huge food fight in the school cafeteria.

#14 A few years ago a 70 year old grandmother was actually put in handcuffs and hauled off to jail for having a brown lawn.

Why in the world would anyone approve of the police arresting ordinary Americans for such things?

It seems like ever since 9/11 the whole country has gotten "security fever".

Suddenly we need to "get tough" on everyone.

Yes, crime is making a comeback, but once upon a time the police in this country were able to handle crime quite well and be courteous and helpful to ordinary citizens at the same time.

But today it seems like nearly every single encounter with police ends up being negative.

It does not have to be that way.

The rest of the world sees what is going on in this country and many of them are deciding that they simply do not want to spend their tourist dollars here anymore. That is not a good thing for our economy.

As the government continues to get even bigger and exerts even more control over our lives, many of our own people are getting sick of it and are moving abroad.

America used to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.

That is no longer true.

Now we get thrown to the floor, handcuffed, beaten and arrested for things that we did not even know were crimes.

If America continues to move in this direction it is going to ruin our economy, our reputation in the world and our national spirit.

Unfortunately, history has shown us that once a free nation starts to lose that freedom it is hard to reverse that slide. Perhaps we will be different. Perhaps the American people will stand up and demand that we restore the principles of liberty and freedom that this country was founded on.

Do you think that will happen? Feel free to leave a comment with your opinion....

To Leverage Now or Save for it Later

 

should-i-take-a-loan-or-save-my-money-to-buy-it-later
When it comes to your paycheck, your weekly take-home money or your monthly take-home money, the way that you philosophically look at it or value it, probably fits into one of the two following mindsets.

Leverage
You spend the money you earn to first pay for the necessary costs of living, and then leverage most of the remainder as payments for additional nice “things”.

Saver
You spend the money you earn to first pay for the necessary costs of living, and then save or invest the rest for later. When you want or need “things”, you save for it first and then pay cash for the thing.
Those that are in the Leverage camp almost always appear to have more assets and nicer things, much sooner than the Saver.

Lets say for example that someone who takes home $5,000 per month ends up with $1,300 left over each month after the rent or mortgage and the other “normal” necessity costs of living expenses. The person in the Leverage camp will likely convert that remaining $1,300 into loan payments on things like…

  • a new car (e.g. $500 per month)
  • a new boat (e.g. $400 per month)
  • the newest clothes – gadgets – toys (credit card #1, $100 per month)
  • the big screen TV – home theater system – new computer (credit card #2, $100 per month)
  • a nice vacation – lots of restaurants – weekend getaways (credit card #3, $150 per month)
  • extra money towards a bigger loan for a bigger house
  • etc…

The Leverage camp folks can instantly get the “things” that they want, up to the maximum amount of excess cash available that can be leveraged into loans, and can live what appears to be a successful life with many of the latest things.

The drawback with this mindset is the fact that the full cost of ownership is much, much higher in the end, than the Saver, who for example may purchase the exact same things, but not on loan (the Saver must wait longer to purchase the things, but would also probably not purchase the same types of things due to philosophical differences).
The three credit cards in the example above are typical minimum payments of balances of $4,000, $4,000, and $6,000. The eventual interest paid out will be $19,269, assuming a typical 18 percent credit card interest rate and minimum payments.

Lets say the new car is $28,600. At 7.5 percent interest and the monthly payment of $500, the eventual interest paid out will be $7,000 over 6 years.

The new boat is $22,900. At 7.5 percent interest and a $400 payment, the interest paid out will be $5,678 over 6 years.

In the end, it will cost $32,000 more for these items than the Saver would pay for them (assuming the same things were purchased). Not only that, but the “things” will not be owned until they are entirely paid off. The Saver will own the things immediately after purchase.
Because the majority of people are apparently of the Leverage mindset, this is why so many of the fancy sky-rise buildings downtown have a bank logo attached.

Ask yourself,

Is it worth it to pay so much more for something, over time, so that it can be had right now?
Is it worth it to take a loan to have a new car, or would a decent used car do alright?
Is it worth it to always be maxed out with hardly a cushion, should something happen?
Is it worth it to keep up with the Joneses?

We’re Going to Experience Apocalyptic Pain, and It’s Going to Be Out of Our Control

 

The US Treasury Department tells us that our federal deficit is currently sitting at $13.8 trillion. On its most basic level the federal deficit is the difference between current government spending (including interest payments) and total current revenue from all types of taxes.

In 2001, when President George Bush took office, our deficit was around $6.5 trillion. Combined with President Obama’s spending packages and commitments, our public and gross debt over the last 10 years has more than doubled.

But that’s not the scary part. What’s scary is how much money we owe when we look at current and future liabilities over the course of the next three decades. Officially, this figure is estimated to be around $150 trillion. Unofficially, according to Boston University economist Laurence Kotlikoff, our future liabilities exceed some $200 trillion. Considering that the tax revenue of the United States is around $4 trillion per year, anyone who’s ever held a balance and made a credit card payment can understand the near impossibility of paying off such a debt.

Senator Tom Coburn is one of many who warns of dire consequences if we can’t get our finances under control:

I think you’ll see a 15 to 18 percent unemployment rate . I think you will see an 8 to 9 percent decline in GDP. I think you’ll see the middle class just destroyed if we don’t do this. And the people that it will harm the most will be the poorest of the poor, because we’ll print money to try to debase our currency and get out of it and what you will see is hyperinflation.

If we don’t take some pain now, we’re going to experience apocalyptic pain, and it’s going to be out of our control. The idea should be that we control it.

We share Senator Coburn’s sentiment. Unfortunately, we’re not as optimistic as he is that any of Congress’ placations will be sufficient enough to help us get out of this hole.

With $4 trillion in annual tax revenue, at today’s debt levels it would literally take 50 years just to pay off the debt that we’ve already committed to - that’s if we stopped all additional spending right now - today. The odds of that are zero - thus our debt liability will continue to grow, as will the interest payments required to service our debt.

The end result of our pulling forward 25 - 50 years of debt is not going to be pretty. As we’ve outlined before, we are on the brink of a catastrophic collapse in the credit of the United States of America. This means that at some point our national credit card is going to be maxed out.

When that will be is difficult to predict. According to Senator Coburn, we’re looking at about 3 - 4 years - which sounds like a viable time line. Really, it all depends on China, because they are the largest buyer of US debt.

But the Chinese are not going to stand by while their US currency reserves become worthless. They are already taking action to counter the effects of a soon-to-be suicided US dollar.

We recently learned that the Chinese have signed agreements with the Russians to drop the dollar as a settlement vehicle, essentially replacing the world’s reserve currency with the Yuan when dealing with each other. We’ve heard many people suggest that this is just a drop in the bucket because of the widespread use of the US dollar - and we agree. However, China is working with other trade partners to do the same thing. And eventually all of those drops in the bucket will fill it up.

Once the Chinese pull the plug there will be only one entity left to support the US dollar - The Federal Reserve. They’ll digitally print trillions of dollars for as long as they can, but sooner rather than later the US dollar will collapse.

And when it does, the end result can only be described as an economic apocalypse.

If the dollar gets to the point it is equivalent to Monopoly money it will be impossible for holders of the bills, as well as our government, to settle transactions with the currency. This means that commerce on a global scale, for all of those expecting to fulfill transactions in US dollars, will come to a standstill.

How will individuals and governments buy food, gas, and other essential goods when the very currency being used to settle the transaction is no longer a viable trade instrument?

Really, it can get that bad. We have no confidence that Congress, the President, the Federal Reserve or US Treasury can fix this problem.

Over the course of the next decade we will see a new US monetary system introduced - just like we saw in 1971, 1944, 1913 and 1785.

This time it will be very disorderly. We can expect trillions in wealth to be wiped out and the many complications that come along with such an event - violence, protests, riots, breakdown in the rule of law and potentially even large-scale war.

If you haven’t done so already, take action to protect your wealth and preserve your well being now, before it hits the fan. Follow the investment strategies of the Chinese and you might have a chance of coming out with something when the chickens come home to roost.

Take possession of hard assets whenever you can, including precious metals, long-term food stores, tools & equipment, and anything else that will retain value when the US dollar loses it.

Debt, Government, and Change, is it Too Late?

 

debt-government-change-is-it-too-late
During situations that are doomed to failure, when does “real” change finally come?

Answer 1: When the absolute end of the road is reached, standing at the edge of the cliff with no choice but to “change”, or fall into the abyss.

Answer 2: When external forces are applied to change the outcome prior to reaching the end, or a would-be conclusion.

Newton’s first law of motion pretty much sums it up, “An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force”.

Change is not the easy way, the easy way is to keep on going in the same direction. Makes sense, yes?
This notion can be applied across the board, to the physical, to the philosophical, to the direction of our personal finances, our goals, our economy, our government, on and on…

During 2010 there seems to have been an increasing “sense” among many, that things aren’t quite right out there. That is, out there in the world – the economy, employment, governments.

There seems to be more and more vocalization about what has been happening around us, more vocalization than in the past. Many can’t seem to quite put their finger on it, and they are unable to quickly say, “The problem here is this“. That is because there is much more than “this”, more than one problem, there are many – many problems, many of which are intertwined, related, and affecting the overall feeling of uneasiness about the current direction we are heading.

Many are maxed out, stressed out, and are beginning to speak out.
Unemployment

How did we get here where the “SGS” unemployment rate is running nearly 23 percent in the U.S. (the measurement method used prior to 1994)? Why does the government today use a method called “U.3″ to measure unemployment (currently 10%)? Why is it that the personal experiences of most folks interacting with other folks leads one to believe the SGS numbers more-so than the U.3 numbers?

Inflation

Why is it that the U.S. government numbers for inflation, today reflect a number less than 2 percent, while the method used to calculate inflation in 1990 would be more than 4 percent, and the method used to calculate inflation during 1980 would be more than 8 percent? Why is it that most Americans have a “sense” that their cost of living has been increasing more than the claimed percentage quoted by the U.S. government?

Spending

Why is it that more and more U.S. states are on the verge of bankruptcy? Why have most States and local municipalities continued to spend more while taking in less? Why are big funds and other investors, seemingly purchasing less and less bonds from these entities, which keep them afloat?

How is it that the U.S. government annual deficit is now 1.3 Trillion (and rapidly going higher) while the national debt is nearly 14 Trillion? How did we get to where every working American (using the governments own misleading numbers) owes 100 Thousand to the debt, not including any of the unfunded liability programs or other state and local debt obligations?

How is it even possible that when adding the current debt of federal government, state government, local government, business, household, and U.S. unfunded liabilities (social security, medicare, and medicare prescription drugs), that the total liability per U.S. taxpayer at this moment is a nauseating 1 Million each?! How many people know this?

Printing Press

Why is today’s 2010 dollar worth only 4 percent of the value it had during 1913 (the start of the Federal Reserve)? Why is it that every single brand new dollar that is printed by the Federal Reserve (a private bank), is then “loaned” to the U.S. federal government with a debt attached to it (interest)? Why does every new dollar put the U.S. further in debt? Why is it that we need a federal reserve system? Why can’t the U.S. federal government print its own money, without having to pay interest to a private bank and private organization of banksters?

Everyone must Work

Why is it required that both spouses have to “work” in the system to make ends meet? Why just a few decades ago would only one spouse need to work to provide a comfortable life for the family? Why have the corporations and businesses (after having cut back so drastically on employment while loading on work stress to those that are left) not hiring any workers back while their corporate profits and executive incomes are at record high levels?

Gold and Silver

Why has the price of gold and silver soared to such highs? Why are gold vending machines popping up in locations around the world, and why do we see so many ads from businesses buying gold and gold jewelery? Why is something like gold and silver being valued as real money by more and more people, and perceived to be worth what it is, in relative terms to a piece of Fiat paper printed with special ink? Why is gold worth more than paper?

Derivatives Time Bomb

What is this thing called “derivatives” which apparently has something to do with hundreds of Trillions of dollars of unregulated “bets” made on untold numbers of pre-packaged assets carrying various risks – something which if called due, would collapse the entire global economic system as we know it?

World Government Debt

Why is it that so many countries of the world are in nearly the same “boat”, the same situation, owing so much money and being so deep in debt, while the same game continues to play as though nothing is wrong?

Bailouts

Why have we been hearing about so many “bailouts”, ranging from privately held businesses, foreign banks, to entire country governments?

When a company or entire government is bailed out, what does that really mean? Since it makes sense that their debts would not be wiped clean (that wouldn’t be fair, would it?), but refinanced instead – with more cost in the end, doesn’t this just delay the inevitable?

And more important, who ends up paying for the bailouts? Are you and I, the taxpayers, the ones who have to pay? Is that why it has been so easy for government bodies to be willing to bailout seemingly every big company, bank, bankster, or country that gets in too deep over their heads, because “they” don’t really have to pay for it – you and I do? Is that why?

These are just some of the questions that “thinking” people are beginning to ask and vocalize among themselves. Something is not quite right. That is for sure.

The real question is, is it already too late to change and prevent a disaster, given the current dire facts? Can there be real change in time to prevent a collapse?

Some think not and are preparing for the worst. Others think it can be done, but only through great pain. Still others do not even realize what is happening around them – and assume that everything will be alright – because everything has always been alright.

What is your position? What are you doing to protect and prepare for the eventualities?

GORDON DUFF: WIKIWEASEL II-THE ALTERNATIVE MEDIA CRUSHES WIKILEAKS

 

If you still think there is anything worth while in wikileaks this article should do it for you. Watch out new group rumored coming soon.

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2010/12/25/gordon-duff-alternative-media-crushes-wikileaks/

ASSANGE LASHES OUT, PROMISES ISRAEL “LEAK”…IN 6 MONTHS
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

“We know what has been released. The genuinely sensitive material held by Wikileaks, that tying Israel to actions against America in Iraq, tying Israel to the drug trade in Afghanistan and tying Israel to terrorism in Pakistan, have yet to be seen. Will Assange be releasing these reports in 6 months? Why wait that long?”

Two Bedouins walk up to an Army checkpoint outside of Kirkuk. They ask for cigarettes. They are dirty, you can smell them 10 feet away. A young NCO eyes them carefully, fingering the safety on his M-4 carbine and responds. “You can have a pack but first you have to give us information.”

The Bedouins look at each other and smile.
“We just saw two, no ten Iranians swimming the Euphrates River. It looked like they had guns, no I think it was bombs, no, a big bomb, a dirty bomb I think I heard them say. They kept saying they were meeting their friends from Pakistan, no, I think it was Al Qaeda, no, now that I think of it, it was Al Qaeda from Pakistan, maybe bin Laden himself, yeah, that’s the ticket. They were taking nuclear weapons and meeting Usama bin Laden.”

The corporal, listening intently with a touch of skepticism looks the taller of the two in the eye and asks, “Where, exactly were they carrying these bombs again?”

The two Bedouins look at each other again, a smile spreads across their faces as they turn to the young soldier, “They had the bombs in their underwear, of course, where to you think terrorists keep such things?”

Another Wikileak is born…….

Julian Assange has lashed out at the independent press for their attacks on the credibility of Wikileaks, particularly after revelations of his associations with, not only the New York Times and the powerful Murdoch media empire, both strong voices for Israel’s Zionist movement, but the Rothschilds family and even, strange as it may seem, billionaire George Soros.

While the mainstream media, now openly admitting their partnership with Wikileaks, has built Assange to “rock star” status, their reporting has systematically censored attacks on Wikileaks by, not only alternative media but governments as well.

Assange’s recent rages at the independent media are a clear indication of the declining status of mainstream press and television as reliable new sources. With 4 out of 5 seeking their news from the Internet and those looking for something other than sports, fashion and gossip, more likely than not moving increasingly toward the alternative press, Wikileaks, now practically a “brand name” for the New York Times and Fox/Murdoch group, is beginning to look, more and more, like a liability.

These attacks on Assange, citing his seeming pro-Israel bias, one he now openly admits also, soon began coming in from governments, Pakistan and Turkey, major allies of the United States, among others. However, the press never reported them or any of the other accusations of bias. While busily reporting on Assange’s sex life, a version now contradicted as to nature and preferences, the media left out the real heart of the Wikileaks controversy itself, its own role in Wikileaks.

If anything, the New York Times is guilty, not so much of espionage as reported by CBS News, but for misrepresenting their role in Wikileaks.

FILTERING THE UNFILTERED, THE PROPAGANDIZING OF WIKILEAKS
When Assange admitted that materials damaging to Israel were allowed to be removed from Wikileaks by outsiders, The New York Times and unnamed others, he failed to clarify the process used for adding material to Wikileaks. This process is called “seeding.”
When Brzezinski accused Assange of “seeding” Wikileaks with “pointed material” on behalf of an “intelligence agency,” this is the process he was referring to. It isn’t just that Wikileaks protects Israel but that material damaging to Israel’s enemies is now proven to have been chosen specifically.

This won’t be said enough times. When material was added and taken away to serve the purpose of powerful outside groups, in this case, all with powerful Israeli ties, it made Wikileaks an agent of censorship, an agent of propaganda and totally discredited the Wikileaks project.
Dr. Alan Sabrosky cites the following after his analysis of Wikileak material;

“The one striking exception in all of this global tour de farce is the Middle East. Certainly, even aside from Wikileaks founder Julian Assange’s fulsome praise of Binyamin Netanyahu, what is said and what is not, represent the message Israel and its partisans in the US Government (itself heavily Zionist and “Israel First” in orientation) want the world to hear, believe and accept. The message coming across in the US diplomatic cables could have been designed and drafted by Avigdor Lieberman, and who knows? It may have been…
No one knows how many groups were given censorship power by Assange or why or what materials were removed, and how embarrassing they would be to Israel. Were there materials on the attack on the Freedom Flotilla or the Goldstone Report? Were there reports on Mordecai Vanunu and Israel’s nuclear program? Did Wikileaks suppress information on how Israel and India have armed Taliban terrorists for attacks inside Pakistan or, far more serious, reports that Israeli sniper teams and other groups, targeting American troops, did so in an attempt to blame Iran and push the United States to war with that nation. Are there reports of Israeli agents planning attacks on US forces in Bahrain in 2007, attacks meant to be blamed on Shiite terrorists allied to Iran? We are told there are and that these reports were removed and withheld.

WHAT WE GOT INSTEAD…
Instead of these reports, the public got these carefully selected and unsubstantiated items:

1. 10th June 2006: Al Qaida in Iraq insurgents plan to attack a forward operating base in Karmah with chemical weapons…The insurgents plan to deploy their chemical weapon using mortars as a delivery system. (Analyst Comments: In Iraq AQI has tried several times to employ chemical weapons against coalition forces).

2. 16th August 2008: CBRN personnel has tested the rounds twice with M8 paper and J CAM. EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), and chemical recon element assess that the chemical … tested positive for chemical agent. EOD reports 12 x full chemical rounds. 14 x damaged rounds are either leaking or empty. The cache consisted of 26 contaminated rounds and 14 empty 155mm rounds.

3. 13th October 2005: As of late September 2005, Al-Qa’ida in Iraq elements allegedly planned to attack Abu Ghurayb prison in early to mid-October using an unspecified number of mortars and car bombs…. AQIZ elements allegedly planned to use 20 “chemical munitions” brought from Syria.

4. 28th January 2006: The ten are chemical weapons specialists and came to Iraq to support the chemical weapons operations of Hizballah Islam I. (Field comment — The chemical operations of Hizballah Islam I were previously reported as Al Qa’ida Iraq operations, the ten unidentified men are chemical weapons specialists from Syria)…The ten unidentified men were taken to Is’Hagey Iraq, where the unidentified chemicals weapons … are stored. The chemical weapons were brought from Syria to Iraq on 21 January 2006.

5. 29th December 2006: As of 27 December 2006, three unidentified Bedouins who were alleged Iraq AQI Operatives planned to transport chemical munitions from Al Judayda, Saudi Arabia, to Nugra Al Salman District, a border area in Al Muthanna Province, Iraq …Subsequently, Iraq AQI operatives planned use the munitions to attack hospitals, outdoor markets, and US military forces in Al Basrah, Al Amarah and An Nasiriyah on or after 15 January 2007.

6. 5th March 2007: AQI insurgency group is planning a rocket attack on several targets in the Baghdad International Zone and a US base in Al Rashdiyah by using Katusha rockets filled with unknown chemicals… these rockets were described as being three meters long and are modified in order to carry the extra weight. (Field Comment – the source was unable to provide the type of chemical and stated that these rockets probably originated from Iran).

7. 20th September 2007: As of late September 2007, Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) militants in Mosul, Iraq were planning an imminent attack on Tall ‘Afar using rockets with Chlorine gas or another chemical compound … The rockets had a range of more than 20 Kilometers, and an impact radius of 50 to 100 square meters. (Comment: the Arabic word “Sarukh” was used to describe the rockets).

Upon closer examination, each of these reports was shown to be worthless, discarded or downgraded by the US government as “chickenfeed.” The proposed attacks all never happened, the weapons spoken of were never found or used, in fact, the Iraq War Logs were a litany of failure. However, when the press, now shown to have selected the “leaks” in the first place, wrote about their own work, what was “chickenfeed” was spun into powerful accusations, all false, fanciful and reprehensible.

We know what has been released. The genuinely sensitive material held by Wikileaks, that tying Israel to actions against America in Iraq, tying Israel to the drug trade in Afghanistan and tying Israel to terrorism in Pakistan, have yet to be seen. Will Assange be releasing these reports in 6 months? Why wait that long?

PRO-WAR, ANTI-WAR, WILL THE REAL WIKILEAKS PLEASE STAND UP
Assange is pro-war, Assange is a strong “neocon” supporter, Assange has supported Bush administration policies in every way from the mishandling of the 9/11 investigation to the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact, Assange was totally pro-American until the Obama administration began pushing for an end to the forced removal of Palestinians by Israel.

Lila Rajiva, writing for Veterans Today, cited Stewart Bramhill:
So what is the corporate media trying to conceal by beating Assange’s sex life to death?

Most of the information in the recent cables release is already widely available on the Internet.

At the same time I find it surprising to find absolutely nothing about the “strategic” reasons the US is at war in Pakistan and Afghanistan.Nothing about the Pentagon agenda to foster the secession of oil and mineral rich Balochistan from Pakistan as a US client state – just like Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and other former Soviet republics. Nothing about CIA support for the Baloch separatist movement. Nothing about the CIA training young Baloch separatists in bomb making and other terrorist activities to disrupt operations at the Chinese-built Gwadar Port (intended to transport Iranian oil and natural gas via Pakistan to China).

The latest Wikileak has been out a for a month, actually much longer if you are the New York Times or the government of Israel. They had it all from day one. With the US government threatening Julian Assange with prosecution for holding and releasing illegally obtained classified material, why aren’t they going after the real Wikileaks, the New York Times? It only took Zbigniew Brzezinski, Washington’s “establishment” foreign policy expert, a “New York minute” to spot Wikileaks as an intelligence operation, when he informed PBS interviewer Judy Woodruff of this on December 2.

This story wasn’t new. The worst part is that the story was well documented from the first, long ago, but suppressed in the press, now long proven totally complicit, not in choosing what Wikileaks stories to print, but in choosing what Wikileaks intelligence was released to the public. This is what it all comes down to.

WIKILEAKS IS A “PRESS RELEASE,” AND HARDLY A “LEAK” AT ALL
Julian Assange, for some unknown reason, placed full authority for what the public could and couldn’t be trusted with in the hands of the New York Times. Wasn’t Wikileaks set up to attack the press in the first place? Wasn’t it Wikileaks that was telling us, from day one, that the governments were controlling the press, censoring the news and supporting wars?

The whole purpose of Wikileaks was to eliminate and bypass the cabal of corrupt government and controlled press, to empower citizens with real information that was withheld. Instead, Wikileaks became just another government controlled newspaper, and Julian Assange got his daily press conferences, his staged photo shoots and his endless fame, all while covering his complicity in censorship and his relationships with the world’s most powerful and often reviled forces, all advocates of war.

With all the hoopla about opposing war, the majority of Wikileaks documents, certainly the most “pointed” and “seeded” of them, as Brzezinski tells us, are all in support of the wars Julian Assange said he opposed. Other than minor reports outlining the idiocy of the people who wrote the reports, cables or whatever we want to call them, other than proving American diplomats and intelligence officers are typically dupes and clowns, something a decade of war and lies has proven to the world long ago, what, exactly, has Wikileaks done?
Dr. Alan Sabrosky sums it up far better than I could ever do;

But nothing like that is there, or at least has yet surfaced, which makes me increasingly inclined to see this as just another game of rhetorical smoke and mirrors, with a lot of real cables and real victims (like the poor US soldier who presumably gave Assange at least some of the cables), but with many or most of the Middle East cables “cooked” if not fabricated outright.

So these, at least, are probably the handiwork of Israeli-Americans or just Israelis putting their own spin on things, included in a mass of otherwise legitimate cables as camouflage and for validation. An Australian news website concluded that “[the] WikiLeaks cables [are] the 9/11 of world diplomacy.” Too, too true – same source, different vehicle and venue, all helping pave the road to yet another needless war in Israel’s service, this time against Iran. The gods weep — but not, presumably, Yahweh.”
