Greg Palast confronts the leaders of the World Bank

created 16/02/2009 - 10:04, updated 19/02/2009 - 00:24 by cybe

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.

Gerald Celente: "Worst economic collapse ever"

created 14/02/2009 - 12:55, updated 14/02/2009 - 23:20 by cybe



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.

Bee Movie

created 30/03/2008 - 02:00 by cybe

I hope you are all well and having a good day.

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.

Yours truly

'Wikileaks.org' taken off line in many areas after fire, court injunction

created 18/02/2008 - 17:50 by cybe

From Wikinews, the free news source you can write!

February 18, 2008

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."

Look for the money, the 96th Letter

created 14/02/2008 - 00:37 by cybe

Kuala Lumpur, February 12, 2007



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.

Other examples I have given in my Letters, "Where is the eliteworld" or "There are two worlds".


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).

I used this research method in "The elite is very old" and "The growth of an elite".

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.



Yours truly, Joost van Steenis

Some interesting quotes about money/slavery

created 14/09/2007 - 08:39, updated 15/09/2007 - 07:49 by cybe

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).

John Perkins: Jerk, Con-man, Shill

by Greg Palast
5 July 2007

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.

Seabrook ProtestorsThis 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.

To All,

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.
