SHARIA LAW COURTS ARE ANOTHER UK POLITICAL HOT POTATO

August 31, 2011

Runnymede Institute
August 31, 2011

Anjem Choudary is a bright, energetic individual with a lot of work on his hands laying the foundations of a pan-Islamic future for the British Isles. His vision is a fair society based on age old principals actually resembling those which the Church of England abandoned some 200 years ago in preference for the eventual Reform Act of 1832.

The mountain of statutes thereafter is what the leader of Islam4UK is now targeting.

Mr. Choudary’s main bone of contention, that man-made laws cannot supercede God Almighty’s rules forms a sound hypothesis, apart from the fact that his are interpreted from a different language and cultural point of view. Some people are bloody livid at the bare-faced cheek, posting edicts of a coloniser’s supremacy reminiscent of their own colonising forebears, Brits know when they’re being kicked while they’re down;

“You are entering a Sharia-controlled zone – Islamic rules enforced.”

UK SHARIA LAW

Multi-culturalism as a tool of quasi-emotive control is finally laid bare when considered from the viewpoint that government precipitated both Islamic mass migration with it’s skullduggery abroad and loose entry policy in anticipation of the numbers to reach this crescendo.

Mr. Choudary is merely reacting to a set of well constructed bullet points to ultimately disarm UK natives of any protest power whatsoever while fully manipulating Islam4UK cadres into the position of easily identifiable, formidable future adversaries.

 

There are no finer enemies than those governments invent for themselves in order to remain relevant as the ‘guardians of the people’. The Muslims aren’t saying anything original with their protestations that bureaucrats are failing miserably at their task but the attempted imposition of an alien solution discounts the fact that most Britons would opt for a mass re-patriation to their already Islamic original homes, ergo, let’s not be fooled by bravado and negative, clash of civilisations overtones in their concocted gig.

The UK is full of people suffering the latest economic downturn under the boot of an oppressive system that fleeces them at every turn through the unelected EU regime fostering a prohibitive atmosphere for anyone wishing to challenge their corruption.

Downing Street knows everyone’s in ‘mad as hell’ mode so they re-focus that anger toward Muslim whipping boys thus deflecting it from themselves, easy peasy politics.


 

  

 

WHAT EXACTLY IS COMET ELENIN?

What is Comet Elenin? Out of the masses of material generated on this subject, it is nearly impossible to get your bearings of a definitive position…

Is Comet Elenin the feared Blue Star Kachina of Hopi Prophecy, Planet X, or a dwarf sun? Speculation and analyses are rife to say the least. To date, approximately 1.5 million web pages are devoted to these concerns, and many with fearsome interest. But is this fear in any way justified? Perhaps yes, perhaps not.

The forecast presented in this video below is the result of hundreds of man hours of research by the Planet X Town Hall, and the Comet Elenin Research Team.

New World Order Uses ‘Overman’ Mythology to Promote Transhumanism

August 29, 2011

By SARTRE
21st Century Wire 
August 30, 2011

The concept of Übermensch, is a German term generally associated with a superman.  This Overman concept is much more than a school of thought viewpoint. It is a nightmare of untold propositions. Paul Kurtz is editor-in-chief of Free Inquiry. He states, “There is no word in the English language that adequately conveys the meaning of secular humanism.

Secular humanism is not a religion; it represents a philosophical, scientific, and ethical outlook. I have accordingly introduced a new term, eupraxsophy, in order to distinguish humanistic convictions and practices from religious systems of faith and belief.”

Ubermensch of the NWO New World Order

Ubermensch: A transhumanist super hero mythology to anchor a New World Order (IMAGE: Wikicommons)

Max More, Ph.D. goes deeper into the construct.

“The concept of eupraxophy encompasses within it humanism, transhumanism (including Extropianism), and possible a future posthumanism. Humanism is a eupraxophy or philosophy of life that rejects deities, faith, and worship, instead basing a view of values and meaningfulness on the nature and potentials of humans within a rational and scientific framework. Transhumanism is a class of philosophies that seek to guide us towards a posthuman condition. Transhumanism shares many elements of humanism, including a respect for reason and science, a commitment to progress, and a valuing of human (or transhuman) existence in this life rather than in some supernatural “afterlife”.

Transhumanism differs from humanism in recognizing and anticipating the radical alterations in the nature and possibilities of our lives resulting from various sciences and technologies such as neuroscience and neuropharmacology, life extension, nanotechnology, artificial ultraintelligence, and space habitation, combined with a rational philosophy and value system.

Finally, Extropianism is the foremost version of transhumanism. While all transhumanists as such will agree on many overall goals, they may differ over the principles that will get us to a posthuman stage. The philosophy of Extropianism affirms the values of Boundless Expansion, Self-Transformation, Dynamic Optimism, and Intelligent Technology, and Spontaneous Order.”

Before your mind hits overload, take the time to listen to the interview with Tom Horn on Future Quake Radio. If you are ambitious and have the time to delve into the extended insights of Mr. Horn, TransHumanism & Genetic Manipulation is an earth shattering experience.

So what does this Transhumanism mean for mankind? Well, Joe Kovacs in World Net Daily quotes the aforementioned Mr. Horn again.

“DARPA calls its project “BioDesign,” and in its 2011 budget, the agency explains it “eliminates the randomness of natural evolutionary advancement primarily by advanced genetic engineering and molecular biology technologies to produce the intended biological effect.”

Horn says the real purpose has to do with immortalism.

“DARPA has an interest in figuring out how to get around the decaying process of cellular life, and they use the term creating an immortal organism,” he explains. “But it’s more than just an organism. They consider it to be potentially a lethal force that can be used in military application.”

Putting aside the actual “weird science” technological developments and biological splicing chromosomal mutations, the basic issue of morals and ethics remain. All of Western Civilization is based upon the premise of “Natural Rights”. The implication that Natural Law is an inescapable component of individual purpose and social conduct is central to a cosmology of a grand design. The pursuit of understanding does not have to adopt a deist revelation in order to advocate a rational limitation on the human being. However, a belief in a divine creator is the very foundation of our common heritage and traditional culture.   

The frontiers of Transhumanism scorns empiricism. The eupraxophy objective is to deny an external divinity, while professing to become gods in the process of honing their nanotechnology and neuropharmacology perfection. If Extropianism is possible, there is no need for a God Creator.

David Lawrence III, the editor of StrategicNews.com pens a provocative treatise called THE ELIJAH OPTION.

The religious argument based upon the oral and written biblical record stems from an acknowledgement on the fallen nature of man. Even the most optimistic extropian transhumanist cannot deny the dismal documentation of man’s inhumanity to man. Evil is real and this fact permeates every aspect of social and metaphysical experience.

Mr. Lawrence succinctly states the axiomatic, that every Christian should know and freely accept.

“God Almighty has no intention of helping man to install any kind of permanent command and control system for the management of evil, and it is monotheistic madness for any believer in the God of Abraham to attempt otherwise.

The entire purpose of the experiment on planet earth was to prove that evil does not work, and that we cannot live apart from Him. The moral law of the Almighty Creator is just as immutable as the natural laws that govern the universe. It cannot be broken.”

Transhumanism that rests upon a eupraxsophy of humanistic convictions that has no boundary of restrains, is erroneous. Wikipedia cites that the Ukrainian/Russian existentialist philosopher, Lev Shestov developed his reputation as an original and incisive thinker, In All Things Are Possible. Shestov adopted the aphoristic style of Friedrich Nietzsche and dealt with such issues as religion, rationalism, and science. His discovery of Kierkegaard prompted Shestov to realize that he shared great similarities, such as his rejection of idealism, and his belief that man can gain ultimate knowledge through ungrounded subjective thought rather than objective reason and verifiability. The artificial ultraintelligent Overman, sees no need to seek this outside help to achieve the ultimate paragon. Thus lays the fatal flaw in the hubris of the nihilism that fixates upon the same arrogance of Lucifer.  

The sanctity of the individual created human soul is synonymous within all beliefs in God. It is symptomatic of the Totalitarian Collectivism that dominates the drive to delink man’s – Similarity, Community, Values and Human Nature – that promotes the Transhumanism dialectic.

The Elijah Option resolves,

“Mankind is on a collision course with destiny. The only thing that is not yet decided is the fate of each individual soul. Mankind will attempt to save itself, and in so doing, build the new world-wide city of Babylon, in defiance of the Almighty who declares that mankind will never succeed in the self-management of its own evil.”

Only a dullard believes that the insolvable global chaos is reversible through conventional means. Conversely, the Transhumanist readily professes that the New World Order fosters this disorder to further their migration away from the sub species that serves this new class of genetic Übermensch. The pitiful deniers that relinquish their Inherent Autonomy to this posthuman man-beast-robot entity, become not mere tools for their new masters, but actually provide no useful purpose for their continued existence.

With a pretended sense of mercy and compassion the Transhuman eugenicists deems justified, their self-convinced supreme right in their own divinity. The irony that their secular humanism claim of not being a religion, begs the practice of a devotion to rule over the inferior human descendents that did not make the leap into the immortal realm.

The essential question remains. Will the Transhuman have a soul in addition to their cyberspace matrix? Can a soul be created by an Extropianist or is a soul unnecessary baggage, when secular Transhumanism become the dominate ethic?

Sure preposterous postulations are reminiscent of the Genesis account in the rebellion of the cherub. Beelzebub goes high tech with the assistance of government research funding.

Britt Gillette of End Times Bible Prophecy referenced by Mr. Kovacs WND article, accordingly.

“Taken in its original context, Jesus did not necessarily say that unless those days are shortened, “humanity will not survive.” Instead, he said unless those days are shortened, “no flesh will survive.”

If the transhumanist movement succeeds in transforming the human race into a race of “posthumans” who no longer need flesh covered bones to survive, then these words of Jesus take on an entirely different meaning.

And it doesn’t take an illogical leap of faith to draw this conclusion.

After all, it seems reasonable to assume that humanity will have to undergo some sort of radical transformation in order to plot a war against God Almighty. The arrogant impulse already exists. All that remains is the need for an exponential increase in human power which deludes humanity into believing it can overcome the Lord of lords.”

Sounds like a Transhuman Satan featured in the final cut of the actual Apocalypse Now redux, waging an Armageddon in hopes of a different result. The New World Order has a decisive objective. The total subjugation of humanity is only a stage, leading to the elimination of all God fearing believers. The deification of substitute gods endowed by posthuman powers that overshadows Yahweh wants engineered Elohim clones.  

The end of this age is rapidly approaching. What follows does not bode well for humanity under the reign of a Transhumanism world. Salvation for our created human beings from the evil transgressions of the Overman’s hubris requires our humbling before our Lord and Creator. Faith and belief is the alternative to malevolence and despair.

Hope in providential intervention is intellectually founded and sound, when compared to the prospects of the DARPA superman. The Elijah Option challenges you. Whom do you serve?

Incredible in-depth discussion of transhumanism and its connections spiritual issues.

More background on science and the transhumanist idealogy.

THE GOD AGENCY: C.I.A. Demands Cuts in Book to Rewrite History on 9/11

August 26, 2011

By Scott Shane
August 26, 2011

In what amounts to a fight over who gets to write the history of the Sept. 11 attacks and their aftermath, the Central Intelligence Agency is demanding extensive cuts from the memoir of a former F.B.I. agent who spent years near the center of the battle against Al Qaeda.

The agent, Ali H. Soufan, argues in the book that the C.I.A. missed a chance to derail the 2001 plot by withholding from the F.B.I. information about two future 9/11 hijackers living in San Diego, according to several people who have read the manuscript. And he gives a detailed, firsthand account of the C.I.A.’s move toward brutal treatment in its interrogations, saying the harsh methods used on the agency’s first important captive, Abu Zubaydah, were unnecessary and counterproductive.

THE GOD AGENCY: Over the decades, the agency has developed a 'god' complex, now they want to write their own history on 911.

Neither critique of the C.I.A. is new. In fact, some of the information that the agency argues is classified, according to two people who have seen the correspondence between the F.B.I. and C.I.A., has previously been disclosed in open Congressional hearings, the report of the national commission on 9/11 and even the 2007 memoir of George J. Tenet, the former C.I.A. director.

Mr. Soufan, an Arabic-speaking counterterrorism agent who played a central role in most major terrorism investigations between 1997 and 2005, has told colleagues he believes the cuts are intended not to protect national security but to prevent him from recounting episodes that in his view reflect badly on the C.I.A.

Some of the scores of cuts demanded by the C.I.A. from Mr. Soufan’s book, “The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against Al Qaeda,” seem hard to explain on security grounds.

Among them, according to the people who have seen the correspondence, is a phrase from Mr. Soufan’s 2009 testimony at a Senate hearing, freely available both as video and transcript on the Web. Also chopped are references to the word “station” to describe the C.I.A.’s overseas offices, common parlance for decades.

The agency removed the pronouns “I” and “me” from a chapter in which Mr. Soufan describes his widely reported role in the interrogation of Abu Zubaydah, an important terrorist facilitator and training camp boss. And agency officials took out references to the fact that a passport photo of one of the 9/11 hijackers who later lived in San Diego, Khalid al-Midhar, had been sent to the C.I.A. in January 2000 — an episode described both in the 9/11 commission report and Mr. Tenet’s book.

In a letter sent Aug. 19 to the F.B.I.’s general counsel, Valerie E. Caproni, a lawyer for Mr. Soufan, David N. Kelley, wrote that “credible sources have told Mr. Soufan that the agency has made a decision that this book should not be published because it will prove embarrassing to the agency.”

In a statement, Mr. Soufan called the C.I.A’s redactions to his book “ridiculous” but said he thought he would prevail in getting them restored for a later edition.

He said he believed that counterterrorism officers have an obligation to face squarely “where we made mistakes and let the American people down.” He added: “It saddens me that some are refusing to address past mistakes.”

A spokeswoman for the C.I.A., Jennifer Youngblood, said, “The suggestion that the Central Intelligence Agency has requested redactions on this publication because it doesn’t like the content is ridiculous. The C.I.A.’s pre-publication review process looks solely at the issue of whether information is classified.”

She noted that under the law, “Just because something is in the public domain doesn’t mean it’s been officially released or declassified by the U.S. government.”

A spokesman for the F.B.I., Michael P. Kortan, declined to comment.

The book, written with the assistance of Daniel Freedman, a colleague at Mr. Soufan’s New York security company, is scheduled to go on sale Sept. 12. Facing a deadline this week, the publisher, W. W. Norton and Company, decided to proceed with a first printing incorporating all the C.I.A.’s cuts.

If Mr. Soufan ultimately prevails in negotiations or a legal fight to get the excised material restored, Norton will print the unredacted version, said Drake McFeely, Norton’s president. “The C.I.A.’s redactions seem outrageous to me,” Mr. McFeely said. But he noted that they are concentrated in certain chapters and said “the book’s argument comes across clearly despite them”…

WIKI-FALSE FLAG: FED GRAND JURY NOW USING WIKILEAKS TO SHUT DOWN THE FREE INTERNET

August 25, 2011

By Patrick Henningsen
21st Century Wire
August 26, 2011

Whether or not you believe that Wikileaks and Julian Assange are functionaries of Washington’s sophisticated intelligence web, what is clearly undeniable is that the existence of the document dumping site is being used by the State to end internet privacy, and place restrictions on free speech, availability of public domain information, and to legally prosecute users of certain websites.

Presently, the United States is conducting its own secret Grand Jury investigation into Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. At the centre of Washington’s effort is the targeting of WikiLeaks’ DNS host, Dynadot, based in California. With this case, the US Government is hoping to rewrite the current rulebook regarding freedom on internet.

The government’s ability to shut down any website’s DNS means that it will be able to effectively lock the users’ gateway into any website deemed to be in violation by invoking the dubious and wholly unconstitutional USA Patriot Acts I & II.

With the majority of the world’s DNS houses residing within the US, a precedent like this could give the US Federal Government carte blanche to seize and liquidate any number of websites that might fall into the state’s new and elastic definition of ‘espionage’, or are deemed to be a ‘threat to national security’.

With the backing of a Federal Court order, Washington soon hopes to gain the right to ‘legally’ sequester confidential user information including subscriber names, user names, screen names, mailing addresses, residential addresses, business addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, temporary IP addresses and credit card payment and billing details.

Few will doubt that this act of Constitutional aggression on the part of the State could have far reaching consequences for any online publisher.

WIKILEAKS: A useful tool of the establishment to move a police state further forward.

The legal and academic basis for this case revolves around the state’s attempt to redefine the term espionage in relation to the content uploaded on to Wikileaks site. Washington’s redefinition of this particular word is catered to suit to the every-increasing appetite of the encroaching new police state. According to Websters dictionary, es·pi·o·nage is defined as follows:

1. the act or practice of spying.
2. the use of spies by a government to discover the military and political secrets of other nations.
3. the use of spies by a corporation or the like to acquire the plans, technical knowledge, etc., of a competitor: industrial espionage.

Attempting to prosecute any website who might be displaying so-called ‘leaked’ material online under the umbrella term espionage may seem like a legal and intellectual stretch, but for a US Federal Government that has hung its hat for the last 10 years on Stasi-style laws like the Patriot Acts I & II, stretching the definition of a single word is merely a routine legal exercise.  

Above all this, remains the fact that under the cloak of official state secrets, employees of the US government, have, and probably still are, using Wikileaks as a dumping ground for disinformation, fake material, counterintelligence, and as an intelligence back-channel- all to suit any disinformation program or psychological operation that they may be running at any particular time. From a legal standpoint, judges and scholars in the US should pay attention to this important point when deciding on what moral and legal grounds the state is actually standing on.

More to the point, Washington’s attack on Wikileaks and its frontman Julian Assange appears to be no more than a trojan horse errected by the state to compromise user rights to privacy and freedom of speech. Experts have shown already that Wikileaks has been working directly with the US Department of Defense , in one intance at least, in order to avert attention from a massive black market in sensitive information, partially highlighted by the Washington Post’s infamous expose entitled Top Secret America.

  Governments using Wikileaks to spread disinformation?

RT Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Pqk_j8-WQw

Based on this revelation, one can see now that Washington is not actually after Wikileaks, rather, it is actually targeting any remaining rights to privacy, anonymity and data protection currently enjoyed by free users in the United States and abroad.

Yesterday, Rabble.ca reports:

U.S. espionage investigation against WikiLeaks: Patriot Act order unsealed

Further proof has emerged of the United States secret Grand Jury investigation into Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. Further information has been demanded on the organization and its founder for the US courts, this time under the PATRIOT Act. The Grand Jury has been meeting in Alexandria, Washington DC, trying to work up an espionage case against the organization’s founder Julian Assange. The latest information demanded is anything held by WikiLeaks DNS host, Dynadot in California, regarding wikileaks.org, WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.

WikiLeaks have just received a copy of the recently unsealed court Order from the United States, signed by a US magistrate judge on the 4th of January 2011. Using the terms of the PATRIOT Act the Order was issued to Dynadot, the domain registrars for wikileaks.org, for all information they hold on WikiLeaks, Julian Assange and wikileaks.org.

The Order demands Dynadot handover the following information for the time period November 1st 2009 to present, within three days of the date of the Order:

1. Subscriber names, user names, screen names, or other identities; 2. mailing addresses, residential addresses, business addresses, e-mail addresses, and other contact information; 3. connection records, or record of session times and durations; 4. length of service (including start date) and typos of service utilized; 5. telephone or instrument number or other subscriber number or identity; including any temporarily assigned network address; and 6. means and source of payment for such service (including any credit card or bank account number) and billing records.

Also:

1. records of user activity for any connections made to or from the Account 2. non-content information associated with the contents of any communication or file stored by or for the account(s), such as the source and destination email addresses and IP addresses. 3. Correspondence and notes of records related to the account.

WikiLeaks do not know what, if any, information Dynodot provided the US courts with. This demand follows a subpoena earlier this year to Twitter for the information it holds on WikiLeaks, Julian Assange and some of his associates. For further information please read the full Dynadot court Order here.

SYRIA PREPARING TO RESIST GLOBALIST AND NATO REGIME CHANGE PLANS

August 23, 2011

By Patrick Henningsen
21st Century Wire
August 24, 2011

With globalist restructuring plans for the Middle East and North Africa looking to be nearly complete, one major hurdle remains. After a relatively easy path to victory in Tunisia and Egypt, and with the project to dismantle and re-privatise the Libyan state nearly complete, only Syria remains as the last serious contender for resistance against a globalist effort to dominate the greater region.

According to a report yesterday in USA TODAY, the Syrian leader, President Bashar Assad is “not worried” about the security of his country, and also warned NATO against any foreign military operations against this country. The report continues by stating:

“I am not worried about the security situation right now, we can say the security situation is better… It may seem dangerous, but in fact we are able to deal with it,” Assad concluded.

NOT ROLLING OVER: Assad's Syria will be one of the globalists most difficult regime change operations.

Led by the globalists’ top PR spokesperson Barack Obama, the West, without question has long set its sights on Syria. Western media consumers can firstly expect a trial by media of Assad, followed by more Western-backed provocateur actions within the country designed to sway international opinion in favour of the  following:
  
1. International sanctions
2. UN Resolution
3. No Fly Zone
4. A long, protracted NATO bombing campaign
5. “Regime change

This is the current formula(above) being employed by the US, UK and its ‘Coalition’ partners to win control of a country. After the US over-step in Iraq in 2003, the acceptable diplomatic technique is now done whereby the US/UK will work through the UN by pushing a vague resolution, and using NATO as the quasi-legal enforcement arm of a UN-backed NO FLY ZONE. Certainly, this has worked so far with Libya.

Globalist think tank The Council on Foreign Relation (CFR), officially called for “regime change in Syria” on August 18th. This should be as clear an indication as any that plans have already been drawn up to restructure the country.

The story by now, should be a familiar one. As with Libya, top analysts have concluded that the recent Syrian unrest was planned many months ago, and has since been seized upon by the western media. It is not surprising here that unrest in that country has been both financed and driven mainly by a foreign agents of influence, and not true reform seekers as is depicted in the western mainstream press.

As with the technique used in Libya, the western PR machine will then spin the story that Assad’s forces opened fire on “peaceful protesters” and therefore render him(in the eyes of western media consumers) illegitimate as the ruling government in that country. Another humanitarian intervention– it’s a formula that has apparently worked thus far in Libya, and to a lesser degree in both Egypt and Tunisia. This PR effort is then helped along by digital trending using social networks like Twitter, with the majority of regime change activity being posted in English language format.

As we have seen in the final stages of the fall of Libya, not only are western-backed rebels receiving heavy arms and NATO air support, Britain’s M16 have been on the ground directing military activities in the country, as well as known terrorists being shipped in and used by western intel agencies during the final stages of the civil war. The same can be expected in Syria should the country descend into an artificial civil war.

Western intelligence openly active in supporting and directing “rebel” forces in Libya.

Clearly, Assad is unlikely to resign from power, which creates the ideal media conflict between him and his western detractors.

Predictably, and once again, in this situation President Barack Obama‘s calls for sanctions against Syria and for its leader President Assad to “step down” from power are all part of a PR and diplomatic process designed to soften the ground for an impending NATO, or “coalition” group military intervention in Syria.

The US have already scrambled its military assets in the region of Syria, and have been conducting manuevers there for a number months already, through Operation Sea Breeze 2011 and other similar exercises.

Few would deny the strategic importance of Syria on the grand chessboard. It’s bordering neighbors include no less than Israel, Turkey, Lebanon and most importantly now, Iraq. It is a given that all of those neighbors, with a possible exception of Lebanon, will do the USA’s bidding when is comes to cooperating in an operation against Syria. But Syria is also a natural political ally of Iran, a trading partner with Russia and China, and is still aligned firmly with the region’s last remaining effective, independent militias- Hezbollah, based in Lebanon.

To break Syria, and then bring it under the globalist umbrella would be a key jewel on the globalist crown in their effort to control the entire Middle East and Central Asian region. In addition, Syria is one the region’s most economically independent sovereign states and possesses an incredible basket of natural resources. For all these reasons, Syria is a very high priority for globalist economic privatisation and dismantling of the state that is currently in place.

Israel’s stake in Syrian regime change is first and foremost- land. The remainder of the Golan Heights, as well as its formerly occupied prize in the form of South Lebanon will be firmly within Israel’s grasp if the country should eventually come under US and European globalist control.

LAND IN QUESTION: Israel has its sights set on both the Golan Heights and South Lebanon.

Unlike Saddam Hussein in Iraq, or Gaddafi in Libya, President Assad’s confidence in Syria’s ability to overcome the current western-backed coup is not misplaced optimism. Unlike other soft targets in the surrounding region, Syria maintains one of the largest, most loyal, and well-trained standing armies and air force operations in the region. They have state-of-the-art anti-aircraft defense systems in place, and a very sophisticated and well-oiled intelligence network, one which has given its near neighbor and traditional adversary, Israel’s IDF and Mossad, a difficult time penetrating over the years. 

The report further states that:

“Assad warned against Libya-style military intervention, saying “any military action against Syria will bring repercussions that (the West) cannot tolerate.” There have been no serious international plans to launch such an operation, in part because the opposition has said it does not want Western countries to interfere.

Assad declared to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday that military and security operations have stopped in Syria. Despite that pledge, the government’s offensive has continued, although on a smaller scale.”

The western globalist effort to absorb Syria in its fold will be by anyone’s estimation, a long, expensive and very difficult process to install a US-Euro-Israeli compliant regime to replace Assad’s government. Time is not on their side. It is doubtful that despite their recent victories in North Africa, the US-Euro-Israeli Axis will be able to withstand the domestic political and economic pressures which face the ruling regimes at home.

If there is a country that can, and are prepared to hold out, despite globalist PR and political pressures- it is Syria. In addition, tempting the wand of fate with Syria also risks pulling Iran- or Russia, into a wider regional conflict, the results of which, war game planners in Whitehall and the Pentagon are already studying and preparing scenarios for.

For those reasons, the coming months may reveal a series of successive western moves which planners in Washington, London and Tel Aviv hope will accelerate destabilisation of the country leading to regime change. This may include pre-emptive measures, like an early assassination attempt on President Assad using  western or Israeli intelligence operatives already in play in the region.

A successful NATO operation in Syria would probably come at a high cost, but it would in effect remove the Middle East’s last remaining strong and independent states from the chess board, paving the way for a unified, geopolitical globalist grip over the greater region. 

Doctor: Israel are using new weapons against Gaza

August 23, 2011

Maan News Agency

GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — The head of an emergency ward in a Gaza City hospital said Monday that Israeli forces were using new, more brutal weapons against residents of the Gaza Strip.

On Thursday, Israeli forces began a four-day bombarded the coastal enclave killing 14 Palestinians and wounding dozens more in a series of airstrikes and drone attacks.

CRUEL AND UNUSUAL: Israel has been testing illegal weapons on native Palestinians

Dr Ayman As-Sahbani said patients were admitted with horrific injuries and that some bodies delivered to Al-Shifa Hospital were so badly burned they were unrecognizable.

He said Israeli weapons made no distinction between women, children and the elderly, pointing out that a two-year-old toddler and a 13-year-old boy were among those killed in the latest escalation.

On Tuesday, eff reported that Argentina’s National Telecommunications Commission (CNC) had issued a directive to local ISPs to block two websites- leakymails.com and leakymails.blogspot.com- in response to an order from a federal judge.

Today, on Google’s Latin America blog (in Spanish), Senior Policy Counsel Pedro Less Andrade writes that Google records indicate that some service providers in Argentina are blocking access to the IP address 216.239.32.2, which is linked to more than one million blogs hosted on Google’s Blogger service.

IP blocking is a blunt method of filtering content that can erase from view large swaths of innocuous sites by virtue of the fact that they are hosted on the same IP address as the site that was intended to be censored. One such example of overblocking by IP address can be found in India, where the IP blocking of a Hindu Unity website (blocked by an order from Mumbai police) resulted in the blocking of several other, unrelated sites.

As Andrade points out, “There are other less restrictive technical procedures than the one used, which allow ISPs to comply with court orders fully, while affecting only the sites involved.”

In this case, it would appear that the block is likely related to the aforementioned case, and that ISPs–in an attempt to comply with the court order–have enacted the overbroad measure of IP blocking rather than blocking the site’s URL.

Google reports that they are working with stakeholders to restore access to the hundreds of thousands of blocked blogs and other sites in Argentina.

WORLD FINANCE CRISIS 2011 – DEPLETE, DELETE AND MOVE ON

August 22, 2011

A world financial collapse? So what exactly are we looking at here? The most recent ‘epic sized big bourse crash’, comparable to 1929, was on Oct. 19, 1987, also known as the “Black Monday” crash which witnessed a 20-percent-plus collapse of index numbers, and therefore nominal stock market value in one day on some major markets, like the USA’s Dow Jones Industrial Average or DJIA.

Since early August 2011 we have had global stock exchange falls of around 15 percent in 15 days. 

Giving us a handle on what this means the 1987 crash, which saw the DJIA crash to about 1850 points  wiped off an estimated $1600 billion or $1.6 trillion of nominal value, that is market capitalization, in dollars of 1987 value. As of August 22, 2011 the DJIA is at about 10 850 ponits, after major losses.

BULL AND BUST: The Wall Street economy is engineered for cycles and to transfer wealth upwards.

For the same amount of loss today, using official data on inflation since 1987, we would ‘need’ a loss of about $4.5 trillion.

THE STOCK MARKET CASINO

Interestingly, this has already happened, even with a loss of only 15 percent since the start of August 2011. Estimates for loss of nominal value (market capitalization) since the start of August through August 19, are well above $ 7 trillion. From the most recent high point for world exchanges, in February 2011, total losses are about $ 9 trillion. 

To be sure, there is a play on words as to the meaning of a stock market “correction” versus a stock market “crash”, but we can easily forecast that losses, through September-October 2011 can reach as much as $ 24 trillion, or around 75 percent of nominal value for the world’s 16-largest stock exchanges. This will be the biggest-ever loss, in nominal value. This is based on present day turnover value, in nominal terms, on the world’s 16-largest exchanges, estimated at around $ 36 trillion-a-year in 2010.  http://www.loansandcredit.com/worlds-largest-stock-exchanges/

WHY IT HAPPENED

Retrospective myth-making on the 1987 crash noted that Iran had fired missiles over the Persian Gulf, causing some nervous moments, rather like Hamas firing missiles on Israel, today. The decisive factor, for some myth-makers treating the 1987 event, was that 24 years ago the US wanted a lower-valued dollar, rather like Obama wants today, prompting foreign investors to start dumping stocks, fearing exchange rate-related losses. The curious thing, here, is that the Plaza Accord cut in 1985 of the US dollar’s value against the yen by about 40 percent, and by around 20 percent against the German Deutschmarks had almost no impact at all on “investor sentiment” ! Can we imagine it took those hands-on traders about 2 years to wake up to the news ?

As we see already, “investor sentiment” is a special herd thing, possibly quite mysterious. It in fact relates to the basic reality of the value-creation process – firstly creating ex nihilio, then trading “negotiable securities”, AKA tradable assets, in the most perfectly unregulated and corrupt way possible. When their value collapses, as it can only, and will only, these paper chits and fragile promises are binned – in a slash and burn process we can call “Delete, Deplete, and Move On”.

Another favoured explanation of why investor sentiment was so bad in October 1987 is that markets were not well protected by Plunge Protection, at the time. Programme selling software did not face the circuit-breakers which today stop trading after there is about a 10 percent decline in any one trading day. In other words and in theory, we could have a 50 percent fall in one 5-day trading week but we can’t have 20-percent-off in a single day.

THE MYSTERY OF THE MARKETS: Moving the herds in and out of financial cycles.

In March 2011, following the Fukushima nuclear disaster, Japan’s Topix index tanked by 12 percent in a single day (15 March), the biggest single day loss since the 1987 crash, in a panic sell off similar to what all stock exchanges are capable of, when sentiment is right. The 15 March 2011 crash, in Japan, caused a loss of around $ 400 billion of nominal value in 1 day.

NOT JUST THE CLOSING BELL

In the good old days of 1987, falling markets resulted in yet more selling, which basically snowballed as computer-generated trades kept pressure on the markets all day and all week. As observers remarked: “The only thing that kept markets from melting down even more, each day, was the closing bell” – but the bell rang on a very different world relative to 2011.

Money growth is one feeder of market growth. This is the basic fuel for the delirious and unreal illusions created, vectored and sold, to the unwary, by stock market operators since they started operating in their ‘modern’ format, in the first two decades of the 18th century. Interestingly, these very first modern-type stock market “shell games” were all related to, or triggered by attempts to cut the crippling debts of royal families and their noble allied leading families.

Basically, we have a situation where the state can print money, and its close supporters in the financial world can print share certificates. This notional value – and the word “notional” has meanings close to the word “fictional” – can then be swapped against real assets, starting with gold and silver bars and coins, and extending to oil, food, minerals, land and any other real asset. At the largest most aggregate level it is obvious the amount of nominal “value” a market can first create, and then lose will depend on how much fiat monetary value existed and circulated, before the crash.

The two forms of unreality are linked. Both are a socialized and cultural bet on what the words “value” and “confidence” mean. The average taxpayer and consumer is the sucker or patsy – of course.

Depending how we interpret the data, for example world M1/M2/M3 money creation since 1987, world stock market capitalization and turnover, and global economic growth since 1987, we can suggest that world stock exchanges, today, could be overvalued by as much as 100-to-1 in real terms. The “correction” that is both possible – and needed – would be a 99 percent fall of average stock exchange values from early August 2011 levels, or about another 75 percent from August 22 levels. 

GLOBAL COLLATERAL DAMAGE

Taking as one example, fast growing emerging economy giant India shows what kind of expansion of money supply is possible in a short period of time:
http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/features/investment-world/article2037972.ece 

On top of the money supply growth, multiplying the potential damage from stock market crashes, we can note in the Indian case – and worldwide – at least three other key factors.

The first is that “cash equities”, where stocks, bonds or other traded assets are bought using cash are seriously going out of style: in India today, as elsewhere, around 90 percent of tradable assets ares NOT bought for cash or using cash. They are acquired or created through derivatives trading. Next, the revolutionary expectations – always growing – of market operators and traders are surely and certainly raised by so-called ‘financial engineering’ which has telescoped previously separate asset spaces, for example government debt (bonds) and company stocks (equities) and raw materials (commodities) in a so-called “seamless asset space”. In turn and next, we have the interconnection of exchanges worldwide, further raising the potential for “value growth”. In nominal value terms (although nominal value has no real meaning, because all engineered assets have counterpart liabilities – sometimes huge) world stock market turnover volume has grown at least 20-fold since 1987. 

Stock market crashes can and should reflect this reality. Losses since February 2011, and particularly since the start of August can very simply be the start of a historic process of adjusting the unreal and fantasist “tradable asset economy” to the realities of what is called the “real economy”.

LOST AND FOUND VALUE

Today’s crash could, or should therefore be 15 times bigger than the 1987 crash, causing 24 trillion lost but nominal dollars, if we want to stay in the running for Guinness book of records status. In rough terms this would represent a coming and further 75 percent loss of nominal capitalization for the world’s 16-biggest exchanges, but how would we engineer these losses ?

This will be difficult, even with Hamas rockets raining into Israel and Mr Obama talking down (without even moving his lips) the dollar each day, despite the huge competition the US dollar has – for lost value – facing the overvalued, shaky and worthless rivals called the euro and yen.

The crash sequence is when everybody tries to sell everything, with or without the help of “asset management software”. The effect should first be inflationary – a certain amount of cash leaks out of the paper circus – and should then be deflationary, due to enterprises being starved of credit, loans, or investment capital. The most exposed companies are however instantly identifiable: banks, insurers, brokers and related entities.

Unfortunately, in our present day real-unreal world, the newly bankrupt banks and insurance companies, already bailed out in 2008-2009, will predictably tank again, and get bailed out again. Government debt will become yet more lurid. We cannot predict what will happen after that – because we never previously had simultaneous and total national bankruptcy of nearly all the world’s previously richest countries.

However there is a simple, if courageous solution for out cowardly political leaders. They have to Delete-Deplete-Move On.  During the crash, asset values will be compressed by huge amounts: governments can buy and nationalize the companies they already bailed out, using public money in 2008-2009. We cannot even be sure that governments will manage these assets even worse than the sacrosanct “private players” because private capital has so entirely destroyed the economy since the period of 2005-2007. Can the state do even worse ?  Tune in later.

The ‘flat-line’ solution is therefore possible. Markets bottom out, and stay there. The state moves in, to freeze the dynamic, firstly calling a 6-month truce, during which the economy starts being restructured, from top to bottom.

To be sure, political and legislative action (and cultural revolution) is needed to ensure that, so we must accept we are in a totally new dimension. Welcome to the future !
