IMF and World Bank meet in Washington - Greg Palast reports for BBC Television's Newsnight.
Three weeks ago James Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank, was supposed to appear on CNN, and he told CNN that if I showed up and they put me on the air he would not appear; he would remove all tapes of his interviews if Greg Palast were allowed on the air. And CNN did the courageous thing and yanked me out of the studio. Now we're going to find out why.

From Daily Paul:
I was shocked that Fox would air such a segment.
They mentioned that before 2012:
1. America will be the first undeveloped country
2. Revolution, food shortages, riots, marches
3. Food instead of gifts for Christmas
Seriously, I was shocked. The segment lasted for more than 6 minutes. He said things like parents shouldn't send their kids to get business degrees or psychology degrees and send them to community colleges to learn a real skill. He kept implying that food will become the most important thing for us. He said the retail industry will die off completely but local markets will thrive.
The host even introduced him as a guy who's "predictions always come true".
In 2009 were going to see the worst economic collapse ever, the Greatest Depression, says Gerald Celente, U.S. trend forecaster. He believes its going to be very violent in the U.S., including there being a tax revolt.
If any of you have kids you may have been exposed to The Bee Movie. The story revolves around bees reclaiming their honey, which they claim was stolen from them by humans and when they have it all and stop working no polination happens and all the plants of the world start dying and they learn from their mistake and start repolinating the world again and all the plants come to life again,
Apart from the story being a bit lame, there are decided anti-Anglo Saxon themes and pro Jewish themes and you can sense that the writers intended to demonstrate that pollen is capital and the honey is wealth and guess what, it's all owned by the bees and the hero bees are Jewish. The added occasional hate sentiment makes it a B grade kids movie and not worth foisting on your their minds.

The website WikiLeaks.org has been taken off line in many parts of the world. Wikileaks is a website dedicated to leaking documents that are "anonymous, untraceable, uncensorable."
Several factors have taken the site off line including DDoS attacks, which was followed by a fire which took out the main servers hosting the site in Sweden, and a restraining order on the domain name 'WikiLeaks.org' issued in the United States.
According to the website HongPong.com, Wikileaks experienced "a 500Mbps distributed denial of service attack" before the fire, but it is not known if the DDoS attack is connected to it.
After the attack, a fire was reported in the Uninterruptible Power Supply of the servers which host the site.
The third and final factor taking the site off line is a permanent injunction granted in the California Northern District Court in San Francisco, California to Bank Julius Baer, a Swiss Bank, which has caused the domain to be taken off line in the U.S.. Wikileaks previously published hundreds of documents obtained from a whistleblower of the Swiss Bank, "purportedly showing offshore tax evasion and money laundering by extremely wealthy and in some cases, politically sensitive, clients from the US, Europe, China and Peru."
Dear reader, this is the 96th Letter of an Autonomous Thinker.
When you find a lot of money you have found the elite.
Often I have been asked to give names of elitepeople. But I think masspeople are sufficient autonomous to decide which eliteperson they want to pressurize.
I give only methods how to find elitepersons. Because the elite always wants to have more than the masses, look for the money and you find the elite.
Money allows the elite to distinguish itself from the masses. With money the elite has build a separate world that is closed to masspeople. Money is the ultimate and dominating reason why elitepeople want to have power.
POWER and MONEY are intertwined.
But while it is not always clear who has power, money can always been traced. Money is spend in special places and on special goods. A Ferrari or a big yaught cannot be bought by people who just work for a monthly salary. In five star hotels masspeople are only servants. A massperson can never get a ticket for the first row in a theatre when a premiere is on program.
You can also determine who belongs to the elite by using the Method of the Three F's. (see "Who belongs to the elite", ). Elitepeople possess Finance (capital), Functions (to take important decisions) and Family (a network of trusted people).
In the past I used this method to make a list of more than two hundred people who belong to the Dutch top elite. I published the result in "The Power of the Family-Capital and What to do About It" (1980). Alas only available in Dutch.
By following the money trail you can find elitepersons.
Then and only then you can decide what to do to make an end to the dominating positions of elitepersons, to the situation in which decisions favour in the first place the continuation of the safe and privileged position of a few humans at the cost of the position of the vast majority of humanity.
More money for a small group of already privileged people is the basic reason that many people do not have a decent life. Even when it costs near to nothing to eradicate measles, malaria or tuberculosis, the money is not available.
It is not going to happen that extreme poverty is eradicated in a few years.
On the contrary, the elite continues to channel vast amounts of money to itself.
And again, follow the money and you find the culprits.
Then and only then masspeople can undertake the right actions that make it impossible for the elite to continue the exclusive and safe life they lived for ages. And it is fairly easy to disturb situations that can only be bought by excessive money.
When the elite cannot live any more its privileged life, then and only then the road is opened towards a New World in which all people have equal status.

Many years ago I read an interesting story regarding an alleged argument between the banking elites in Europe and the "United States of America Incorporated" (circa 1870s), in relation to the 'labor management system' required to engineer and build the City of London's 'Industrial Revolution.'
Allegedly the North American banking interests were still pushing for some form of 'institutional slavery' but the Europeans argued for a modernized system of 'serfdom.'
"Keeping slaves," they argued, "required accomodation, food, medicine, hospitalization..." In effect a kept slave necessitates similar expense and treatment accorded to the best 'yoked' animals in our business stables and pastures. The employed serf ('wage-slave') can be dismissed at will, works for a pittance under duress, feeds and clothes his family, will happily pay us three times for a mortgaged house over a generation, and will be totally dependent upon the 'Owners of Capital' for his continued mutual survival."
And better still -- according to the story -- by releasing slaves, more 'money' could be borrowed into existence by the new tranche of 'freed-men' using their 'Credit System" to further empower the generational plan of the global elite usurers for absolute world control.
So the tragic, ruthless, employment system we now must all endure in the West (and eventually in the East) was created over a century ago by -- and for -- the personal benefit of the richest people on Earth.
Humbling, isn't it?
Quote: "Dear Sirs: A Mr. John Sherman has written us from a town in Ohio, U.S.A., as to the profits that may be made in the National Banking business under a recent act of your Congress (National Bank Act of 1863), a copy of which act accompanied his letter. Apparently this act has been drawn upon the plan formulated here last summer by the British Bankers Association and by that Association recommended to our American friends as one that if enacted into law, would prove highly profitable to the banking fraternity throughout the world.
Mr. Sherman declares that there has never before been such an opportunity for capitalists to accumulate money, as that presented by this act and that the old plan, of State Banks is so unpopular, that the new scheme will, by contrast, be most favorably regarded, notwithstanding the fact that it gives the national Banks an almost absolute control of the National finance. 'The few who can understand the system,' he says 'will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.'
Please advise us fully as to this matter and also state whether or not you will be of assistance to us, if we conclude to establish a National Bank in the City of New York... Awaiting your reply, we are." (Rothschild Brothers. London, June 25, 1863).

I remember John Perkins. He was a real jerk. A gold-plated, super-slick lying little butthole shill for corporate gangsters; a snake-oil salesman with a movie-star grin, shiny loafers, a crooked calculator and a tooled leather briefcase full ofSeabrook Protestors high-blown bullshit.
This was two decades ago. The early 1980s. I wore sandals, uncombed hair down to my cheap collar and carried a busted ring-binder filled with honest calculations and sincere analysis. It was Economic Hit Man Perkins vs. Economic Long-Hair Palast. I didn’t stand a chance. The EHM was about to put a political bullet hole through me wider than a silver dollar.
Hit Men have “clients.” Perkins’ was a giant power company, Public Service of New Hampshire. PSNH was trying to sell New England lobstermen and potato farmers on the idea that they desperately needed a multi-billion dollar nuclear plant. The fact that this bloated atomic water kettle, called “Seabrook,” would produce enough electricity for everyone in the Granite State to smelt iron didn’t matter. That the beast could add a surcharge to electric bills equal to home mortgages was simply smiled over by Perkins and his team of economic con artists.

“There can be nothing more unreal in its pretensions than debt currency itself.” – Charles Holt Carroll (1860)
Charles Holt Carroll, a remarkable but now nearly forgotten American bullionist writer, defended sound money in a blazing series of essays (now online at the Mises Institute) appearing in the latter decades of the 19th century. Notable for his rejection of and fractional reserve banking in all his forms, his essays serve as a decisive critique of paper money, credit expansion, and dishonest banking.

I hope this finds you well and in good spirit.
No doubt, most, if not all of you are aware of the gravity of our collective situation. Following is another article to put into your broadcast weaponry/arsenal to help warn others if you find merit in what Sorcha writes. Even if you don't..? I doubt few will argue with what she presents in this posting [below].
Also, please note we have started our own yahoo group/forum because we address subjects that are not being talked about elsewhere.
In its attempt to establish a world empire dominating every nation on the planet, the U. S. has exhausted its ability to finance the expansion and the country now faces imminent financial collapse. From all indications, it looks like 2006 will spell the end for America. http://i.am/jah/greeneco.htm
The American Empire depends on the U.S. dollar. The proposed Iranian Oil Bourse
will accelerate the fall of the U.S. dollar and hence the fall of the American Empire.
I. Economics of Empires
A nation-state taxes its own citizens, while an empire taxes other nation-states. The history of empires, from Greek and Roman, to Ottoman and British, teaches that the economic foundation of every single empire is the taxation of other nations or of their subjects. The imperial ability to tax has always rested on a better and stronger economy, and as a consequence, a better and stronger military that peacefully or militarily enforced the tax. One part of those taxes went to improve the living standards of the empire and the other part went to reinforce the military dominance necessary to enforce those taxes.
Oil, that bubbling crude, Black Gold, Texas Tea; no matter which country's buying or selling it, all oil purchases around the globe are made with U. S. dollars only. The greenback is the international currency of oil-sales, all oil-sales the world over. Since the dollar is the money needed to purchase oil, every country around the globe must hold U. S. dollars. By having to earn or borrow U. S. currency to purchase oil, the value of the dollar is artificially supported because of the demand for oil. Supporting the value of the dollar is vital to the economy of the United States.

Translated from a Finnish article, which in turn has been written off "Dagens Nyheter", a Swedish publication.
Sweden is threatened by acute lack of cash. The Swedish workers' union for transporters stopped all shipments on Thursday because of continued robberies. The union demands police protection for their deliveries.
The banks have requested people to use cards. Also big department stores recommend their customers to pay with cards.
The banks wish to remind that cash withdrawals should be avoided.
"This is not only because of yesterday's robbery. This is a continuous matter of security. If your bank card is stolen, you can always secure your money by shutting down the card. . Stolen cash is gone forever", the deputy PR chief of Handelsbanken, Johan Lagerström, says in Dagens Nyheter magasine.
On Friday noon the banks had not yet seen signs about hoarding cash.. Many banks have however made preparations for the weekend because of the stopped shipments of cash. In addition, bank card requests will be processed faster than usual. "We shall process the requests for cards all weekend. A card requested today will be ready by Monday", promises Lagerström.
Masked robbers blew up a Securitas (company) cash delivery vehicle in Stora Höga on Thursday, north from Göteborg city and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Over 30 cash shipments have been robbed on either roads or from security companies' warehouses in Sweden this year.
But the proles, if only they could somehow become conscious of their own strength, would have no reason to conspire. They needed only to rise up and shake themselves, like a horse shaking off flies. If they chose, they could blow the party to pieces tomorrow morning. Surely, sooner or later, it must occur to them to do it? And yet -- -- George Orwell, 1984
I've never understood the idea of speaking truth to power. The truth, surely, is that in almost all countries of the world, political and economic systems are designed to benefit only the rich and powerful, at the expense of those with less money and power. This is how the world works, and I see no reason to think that the powerful don't already understand that. After all, they designed it; they maintain it.
They steal our money, sacrifice our children in their wars, send the poorest and most victimized among us off to jail for petty mistakes, and crush those of us who might present a real threat to the arrangement. They know we don't like it. They don't care. They don't need to care. They also control most of our avenues of dissent. It's a very simple, very elegant design.
Meanwhile, we get angry and toddle off to tell the truth to the powerful. We have been telling them the truth for centuries. We travel to their great palaces by the hundreds of thousands, to express our anger and despair. We shout and sing and stomp and whine. We threaten. We plead. Sometimes we're beaten up, or sent to jail. It's a tradition of great courage and personal sacrifice, no doubt.
The World Bank - IMF is owned and controlled by NM Rothschild and 30 to 40 of the wealthiest people in the world. For over 150 years they have planned to take the world over through money. The former chief economist of the World Bank, Joe Stiglitz, was fired recently. He pointed out to top executives that every country the IMF/World Bank got involved in ended up with a crashed economy, a destroyed government, and sometimes in flames with riots. Jim Wolfensen, the president of the World Bank would not comment on his dismissal.
Before Joe Stiglitz was fired he took a large stack of secret documents out of the World Bank. These secret documents from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund reveal that the IMF required nations:
1. to sign secret agreements of 111 items
2. in which they agreed to sell off their key assets - water, electric, gas, etc.
3. in which they agreed to take economic steps which are really devastating to the nations involved
4. in which they pay off the politicians billions of dollars to Swiss bank accounts to do this transfer of a countries fixed assets
If they do not agree to these steps they are cut-off from all international borrowing. Today if can't borrow money in the international marketplace, no one can survive, whether you are people or corporations or countries. If that does not work they overthrow the government and plant lies about the former government and/or even rewrite history.
What do these Words Signify? And What are they Doing on My Birth Certificate??
I was recently putting some important papers in order and ran across my Birth Certificates. I have three Birth Certificates.
I was Born on January 13, 1938 in Chicago, Illinois.
Birth certificate one was issued by Roseland Community Hospital, the Chicago hospital in which I was born in 1938. It is written in ink in upper case and lower case script, contains the name of the attending physician and the hospital superintendent (two different handwritings, and a gold seal with the name of the hospital along with the word "corporate" with a number embossed on it. I am unable to decipher the number.
Birth certificate two was issued by the City of Chicago where I was born. It reads "Notification of Birth Registration" in upper and lower case printed letters This birth certificate has a file number and a gold seal which has "Board of Health" and "City of Chicago" embossed on it and two tiny pink pieces of ribbon sticking out from under the seal. All information on it is filled out in upper and lower case typewriting.
The third birth certificate was issued by the State of Illinois and reads "CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRATION OF BIRTH", all in upper case
(capital letters). It also contains a file number but no seal of any kind. All the information regarding my birth is typed in all upper case lettters. At the bottom of the certificate is what appears to be an embellishment. Upon examining this "embellishment" with a magnifying glass, I was stunned to find that it also contains the words "Columbian Bank Note". What does this signify? Should I attempt to "cash in" this Birth Certificate, would I then redeem my status as a living, breathing, flesh-and-blood natural Sovereign Child of God in the eyes of our government?
I am well aware that much has been said regarding the 1933 bankruptcy of our nation and that the Registration of Birth Certificates with our government did not occur till then, The Family Bible was the "official record of births, deaths, marriages" up till then, and each family kept its own records therein.." I have heard, but not yet seen proof, that our government pledges its citizens
(through Registration of Birth) as Collateral to secure loans from various sources (other nations, World Bank, etc.). Have I just come across confirmation of this practise through my own Birth Certificate? Can I "cash in" this Bank Note? Should I do so, would I then gain the monitary amount I have been used as collateral for? What would be the proper procedure for doing so?
Perhaps those of you who are my age and younger will want to check out your own Birth Certificates to discover what our government has used us for and has never told us about. I do not consider myself to be "Chattel" to be traded by my government, and I doubt very much that any of you are willing "Chatttel" too.
Isn't it about time we find out what has really been going on in this nation since 1933, and how our government views us? Are we really merely "Human Resources" -- property to be pledged and used for government's nefarious purposes?? Or shall we just keep on "whistleing in the dark" and "hoping" that our government would not do such a thing to us and really has our best interests at heart??
Are we SLAVES (chattel)?? Or are we Sovereign Children of God??

Live 8, "the greatest concert" ever aired live, has been presented to World public opinion as an "awareness campaign" in solidarity with Africa. Its stated objective was to put pressure on the Group of Eight leaders (G8) to increase foreign aid flows and cancel the debt of the World's poorest countries.
In the words of its promoter Bob Geldof, Live 8 has provided a "unique opportunity" to save a continent from a humanitarian disaster.
The Live 8 concerts organized in the eight major industrial countries

What do sweatshop workers in Bangladesh have in common with the people who work in your local supermarket? More than you might think, writes George Galloway, Respect MP
The only way to make poverty history is to make the G8 history. I don’t mean simply the annual jamboree for the leaders of the world’s richest and most powerful states. I mean the whole nexus of exploitation and privilege that the G8 and its attendant institutions represent.
They are a gigantic siphon sucking up vast quantities of wealth from the poor — whether they live in the poorest countries or in the G8 states themselves. The G8 is not the solution — it is the problem.
Some of the most dangerous men in the world are in Gleneagles Hotel this week. They are responsible not only for the renewed and terrifying drive to war that characterises the start of the 21st century. They also preside over a system that is itself the biggest killer in the world.
The front page of the London Observer on 12 June announced, "55 billion dollar Africa debt deal 'a victory for millions'." The "victory for millions" is a quotation of Bob Geldof, who said, "Tomorrow 280 million Africans will wake up for the first time in their lives without owing you or me a penny...". The nonsense of this would be breathtaking if the reader's breath had not already been extracted by the unrelenting sophistry of Geldof, Bono, B-liar, the Observer et al. http://i.am/jah/truth.htm
Africa's imperial plunder and tragedy have been turned into a circus for the benefit of the so-called G8 leaders due in Scotland next month and those of us willing to be distracted by the barkers of the circus: the establishment media and its "celebrities". The illusion of an anti establishment crusade led by pop stars - a cultivated, controlling image of rebellion - serves to dilute a great political movement of anger. In summit after summit, not a single significant "promise" of the G8 has been kept, and the "victory for millions" is no different. It is a fraud - actually a setback to reducing poverty in Africa. Entirely conditional on vicious, discredited economic programmes imposed by the World Bank and the IMF, the "package" will ensure that the "chosen" countries slip deeper into poverty.
Following is an excerpt from the complete post below.
"...Prison for profit........ it's not just baloney and white bread. More later and thanks for keeping up your daily news. Paul was released from CCP
(ankle bracelet) in Albuquerque and allowed to drive up to Hot Sulphur where he spent another 3 days in jail (my time over the summer has been 5 days in May, 18 days in June-July, 15 days in August and on house arrest, bond from May 24 to June 25, and ankle bracelet from mid-July to August 5,
04). Thankfully, Paul with all his transplant medications, diabetes medications, was in from May
19-24, 04. The rest of the time he was on bond or ankle bracelet house arrest. I doubt he'd have survived a prolonged transport situation. The alleged crime? "Influencing a public office" and "filing a false document." This is what they called our UCC1 financing statement sent when we informed public officials there would be a fee for using our copyrighted property (PAUL SCHMALTZ and PATRICIA SCHMALTZ), which they did anyway...."
Please note what the author says about what happened to them when they tried using the UCC1/strawman approach to dealing with the system and what they have concluded.
If you test the system with all these "patriot" theories/schemes/remedies.., you will come to understand.., THERE IS NO REMEDY IN THE SYSTEM.., BY DESIGN. Government IS force and it is all that it understands. It does not matter if you have right and even their law on your side. It is about control [over you] and ALLEGIANCE.
I had many opportunities to educate women on the monetary system of jail. The moment an order is written, whether it's a warrant or a traffic ticket, or whatever, the money machine is activated. Every prisoner has a monetary value to our government whether its local, county, state or federal. Bonds are written based on the person's name and social security number and are sold through a brokerage firm such as AG Edwards or Merrill Lynch who has the contract to sell all the prison bonds for the city, county, state or federal prisons. Over 50% of the money market bonds right now are purchased in Japan or China. I've been told by researchers that Walmart and, used to be, Kmart also purchase these bonds, Walmart mostly doing so by emptying out bank accounts at night. Both companies are fronts for enormous money machines.
The way the bond works is that a monetary value is placed on the alleged crime and then factored the way banks factor their money. In other words if a person is convicted of a felony the "value" would be $4 million. The county/city/ state then multiplies it by ten, so the bond that goes out for sale with the prisoner's name and social security number is a short-term "promissory" note. It's offered at $40 million. Perhaps an investor will offer 40% of the $40 million, or $16 million. Once this "promissory note" of the face value of $40 million reaches the banks it is then multiplied again by 200 to
300% and sold as bank securities. For those of you who wonder why the US has more people in prison per capita than any other nation on earth, you'll begin to understand how we can have a weakening economy and still fund wars overseas. It' s all based on prisoners.... in other words, prison for profit.
Knowing all this and knowing that a prisoner can have a "net worth" of say, $10,000 per day in the money markets, helped me explain to many bewildered women why they were in jail. We were only merchandise in a warehouse. The storage was pretty cheap; one woman while in jail researched the cost of feeding prisoners per day which ranged from 74 cents to $2.72 per prisoner per day.

There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. We are past being able to pretend otherwise, no matter what comfort might be found in the deception. The United States has invaded and conquered a foreign nation under false pretexts. President Bush and his cronies lied us all into a war.
But that is not why we are damned.
The culmination of decades of accumulated overspending by the government has created an aggregate debt for the United States federal and state governments of $14 trillion dollars. That’s fourteen million million dollars. Or, to put it in a more personal scale, more than $48,000 for every single living human being in the United States, plus the accumulating interest. http://i.am/jah/greeneco.htm
The interest on that government debt now exceeds all the personal income tax collected by that government. That means that the government isn’t keeping up with the interest on the debt, let alone able to pay down the principle. Even before the wars started with lies, the US Government was sinking deeper into debt by one third of a trillion dollars every year. With Bush’s war, the debt is increasing at another half trillion every year just at the Federal level. And because the federal Government, struggling with payments on past debts, is sending less money back to the states, the states are sinking deeper into debt as well.

from gasoline, to food, to movie tickets?
