Can you tell me we are not seeing the similarities of history evolving again?

As news on the Great Cyprus Bank Robbery keep getting worse, the latest being the country’s corrupt finance minister Michael Sarris saying that as much as 80% of “large” bank deposits can be confiscated, Americans should be on the alert to copycat moves by our feral government and bankers. All the more because the American Left are applauding the theft of Cypriots’ bank savings.
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge warns us that when bankrupt insolvent governments “run out of fingers to plug the dikes,” history shows that they fall back on a very limited playbook.
Simon Black of Sovereign Man blog has enumerated 8 steps in the playbook of bankrupt governments:
1. Direct confiscation: As Cyprus showed us, bankrupt governments are quite happy to plunder people’s bank accounts, especially if it’s a wealthy minority. Aside from bank levies, though, this also includes things like seizing retirement accounts (Argentina), increases in civil asset forfeiture (United States), and gold criminalization.
2. Taxes: Just another form of confiscation, taxation plunders the hard work and talent of the citizenry. But thanks to decades of brainwashing, it’s more socially acceptable. We’ve come to regard taxes as a ‘necessary evil,’ not realizing that … Read the Rest
It is now clear, the government of Cyprus was given two options by the IMF and the EU in which they were told that they could steal money from private bank accounts or they could leave the Eurozone all together and face total economic annihilation. This theft involves seizing the funds of all accounts over 100,000 euros, then stealing up to 40% of those funds sometime over the next few weeks, or whatever EU finance ministers decide exactly how much to steal.
I However, no accounts containing less than 100,000 euros will be impacted. This amount was not arbitrarily chosen. The 100,000 mark was chosen because all EU bank accounts are insured up to 100,000 euros. Therefore, the criminal banksters believe that they can steal anything over 100,000 euros because it is not insured.
The stock market is on a cliff. When it falls, it will not only erase the riches on Wall Street but your hard-earned savings. It is called deflation, and it will impact all of us.
I have a pretty good idea about stock market crashes because I have experienced four of them. The first was in 1987. The second was in 1989. The third was in 2001, and the last was in 2008. The monster crash for stocks is still to come.
The fundamentals both for the banking system and the economy and our dysfunctional Federal government will not allow current record stock prices to persist.
As major stock indexes reach all-time highs, there is the disjoint between the value of equity prices and the economic realities that will eventually have to support prices.
We live in a … Read the Rest

Subject: German dominance not unintended
Mr. Millar’s article on Germany and Europe grossly underestimates the extent to which German dominance in Europe was planned. “Might is right in politics and war” said the former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl, while the former German Foreign Secretary said “Germany should now get all that Europe and the whole world refused in two world wars – a sort of smooth hegemony over Europe”. While Hitler had said of 1930s Czechoslovakia that they had no choice about joining the Third Reich because “the points are set” so Helmut Kohl used the same metaphor when he promoted the break up of Czechoslovakia in the early 1990s.
Germany’s Euro with its headquarters in Frankfurt is crippling the social and economic fabric of Europe and unelected technocrats were imposed on both the Greeks and the Italians as their “leaders”. Germany’s ruthless treatment of Greece and Cyprus contrasts with Greece’s generous post war aid to Germany after 1945 while the leader of the German Social Democrat party said that Italian democracy had “elected two clowns”.
German Europe has broken up both Czecohoslovakia (sic) and Yugoslavia, destroyed 27 national constitutions, 27 national parliaments and 17 central banks and pursued policies of supranational bureaucratic power and anti democratic centralisation all too reminiscent of the 1930s and 1940s. We can accept that indibidual (sic) German voters did not know what their country was doing but we cannot believe their politicians were so innocent.

Scientists find treatment to kill every kind of cancer tumor
A potential breakthrough in the war against cancer– a miracle drug that kills every kind of cancer tumor, has been found.
The drug works by blocking a protein that is essentially a “do not eat” signal to the body’s immune system. Researchers successfully used it on mice.
Cancer cells produce an inordinate amount of the protein and trick the immune system into not destroying the harmful cells.
Researchers built an antibody that blocks the protein so that the body’s immune system attacks the dangerous cells. (Scientists find treatment to kill every kind of cancer tumor; Posted: 03/28/2013; abc2news.com)

Careful … “You Could be a Sovereign Terrorist ”

The biggest Threat to the 1st Amendment ever that can create the Transformation into a Police State!!
Finch teaches police and public officials around the country how to deal with self-described “sovereign citizens” like Wright. Finch and his partner, Det. Kory Flowers, have trained nearly 15,000 police and 5,000 public officials to combat sovereigns, zealots who refuse to recognize government authority in virtually any form.
Violent confrontations are rare, but the FBI says at least six police officers have been killed by sovereigns since 2000. …
The agency calls sovereigns — who number between 100,000 and 300,000 — a “domestic terrorist movement.”
This time of year has federal authorities on alert, since a central tenet of the sovereigns movement is that its adherents believe they owe no income taxes.
Sovereigns assert that the U.S. Treasury has set up a secret money account for every American, which can be reclaimed through a bizarre set of legal filings known as redemption. They say everything from taxes to traffic tickets can be disposed of by drawing on the secret Treasury accounts through elaborate legal claims and mountains of paperwork.
Many sovereigns file invoices with police or judges, demanding hundreds of dollars an hour for time spent stopped by officers or when in court to answer charges.
Finch said he instructs officers to ignore paperwork other than license and registration. “Your antennae should immediately go up,” he tells officers. “They refuse to recognize your authority, and that creates a dangerous situation.”
Even nonviolent sovereigns can cause headaches through what Finch calls “paper terrorism.” Some squat in foreclosed homes and file phony deeds claiming ownership, “paying” with photos of silver dollars. Sovereigns believe U.S. currency has no value but recognize precious metals as valid currency.
Editor Thought: People who given up and believe our government is corrupted beyond redemption especially under the influence of the Left may gravitate toward this Sovereign Citizen phenomenon. That does not make this extreme Right Wing individualistic ideology good for society. A nation without laws is a nation in chaos and anarchy. If the government begins to ignore the rule of law as set by the U.S. Constitution the first step is for the States to rise up Constitutionally and call for a Constitution Convention. If the government abrogates this Constitutional process by fiat then it is time for the Second Revolutionary War or the Second Civil War whatever reference is appropriate. Those that unilaterally declare themselves Sovereign Citizens are in essence rebelling against the Constitution than against a Leftist government. It is only when the Constitution becomes irrelevant to the government that American Citizens on a unified front – NOT on an anarchist counter-rule-of-law basis – through off the bonds of an unjust government just as the Founding Fathers did against British Rule back in the late 1700s.

How Bad is this … Law Passed on same day as Boston tragedy. What’s to say that they did this so they can get out of the market without being noticed because they are getting ready for collapse??
Obama Quietly Passed Law Making Insider Trading Easier for US Politicians
Imagine if you were able to pass a law that would regulate your own behavior and ultimately define the consequences of that behavior. That’s what all politicians in Washington DC do on a regular basis.
When it comes to regulating their investments whilst in office, they are able to pass laws that allow them to use special foreknowledge (that only lawmakers and government regulators have) for personal gain.
It’s all about finding that golden loophole. Once upon a time it was called “insider trading”… hardly a crime on Wall Street anymore (props to Goldman Sachs), and neither in Washington DC, or so it seems, according to the President and his legislative branch.
The Breeding of Agenda 21 comes from an Ideology that creates disease like Inbreeding does in Livestock.
We Cannot find the Solutions we need without Including all Aspects of the Higher Levels of Learning, like the Fundamental Transformation that Allan Savory has spent a Lifetime doing don’t you agree???
[Editor: I have to be honest that I do not know who Allan Savory is. Here is 20 minute video entitled “Allan Savory: How to green the world’s deserts and reverse climate change” is Savory speaking on reversing Climate Change and re-greening deserts. Being one of those Climate-Change deniers I still have to listen a few times for my thumbs up or thumbs down.]
Why Didn’t We hear or see these Organizations like the UN, World Bank, TEEB (The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity about page – [Editor: Here is an excerpt from “Green Transition on the Global Agenda” that provides some food for thought on TEEB:
The turf is shifting again to investing in biomimicry companies such as those described by Dr. Gunter Pauli in his Blue Economy, Janine Benyus’ Biomimicry Institute, Dr. John Todd’s Living Machines, Dr. Allan Savory and the Savory Institute, and now showcased in the management programs of Tomorrow’s Company. All these companies design their products with nature, such as Charles River whose medical clotting agent is harvested sustainably from horseshoe crabs (WIRED August 2011).
This nature-inspired leading edge of the green transition is part of the energy-efficiency revolution now sweeping the global economy, notably in Brazil’s Sustentar 2011. To see the huge returns to these business models requires looking beyond economic calculations of “efficiency” (which are obscured by rigged markets and false prices) to calculating thermodynamic efficiency in the real world: EROEI (energy return on energy investment). Such scientific calculations of actual efficiency show, for example, that extracting oil from tar sands is an energy-loser, as is most ethanol.
The new textbook for asset managers and company executives is The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB), a large project for a group of G-20 countries led by former banker Dr. Pavan Sukhdev, who is also an advisor to Ethical Markets. An early example of the efficiency of ecosystems services was devised by Prof. Graciela Chichilnisky of Columbia University, to keep pure water feeding New York City by preserving its forested watershed – cheaper than constructing treatment plants, an approach also used in Brazil and elsewhere. Calculating such broader longer-term efficiencies is the wave of the future Green Economy (UNEP-FI Tipping Point, Washington, Oct. 2011), along with new metrics at the corporate and national level such as those I described (CSRwire “Quality of Life Indexes Gaining Ground“).
This is a far cry from Wall Street’s current fascination with high-frequency trading and other speculative bets on commodity ETFs and hedge funds. In my “Looking Back From 2020″ scenario, I foresee such excessive trading categorized in medical manuals along with gambling as addictive behavior.
Hopefully, Wall Street high frequency traders can learn about Slow Money and how trading is done in biological markets, which is reciprocal and symbiotic (Susan Milius, Science News, July 31, 2011), such as that in minerals between plant roots and fungi. Shifting to longer-term investing is key to the emerging green economy, whether harvesting solar, wind, geothermal or ocean energy – since after the upfront costs, the fuel is free and inexhaustible. Encouraging is the exploration of ecosystems models of efficiency and productivity by British financial gurus Andrew Haldane and Lord Adair Turner, who understand what is wrong with GDP. Meanwhile, the green economy keeps growing as our latest Green Transition Scoreboard® shows.])
Identify and consider what Allan Savory has to say here in this TED Video??? This is an Ideology that is stomping out all other forms of debate and the only solution that can fix the problems have to come from a consensus.
How to fight desertification and reverse climate change
[Editor: The video in the above link is the same as I found on Youtube that I included above.]
Guys without the above scientific Learning that Allan Savory has Uncovered [then] how can you make the kind of statements that will not CAUSE massive Volatility and effect supply consistency in a World like Mr. Savory says is reaching a Level of Population demand that cannot maintain civility while we teach the world society about the relationship and that population size and Finite earth are a Limited resource supply that needs to be considered when we are planning our families?
I think with the Greater Understanding of this Learning people will self-regulate themselves because Survival Instincts are Sharpened with a Greater level of Understanding. Forcing People to Conform to something with Oppressive means without Educating the reason will never end with peaceful results. We have seen this play out in past historic events that were Supply Shortage driven like the decades before the past two world wars which were born out of supply shortages due to populations exceeding supply. What did those factions take over and secure once they took over a nation? Warring nations usurped the nation’s resources. What we are now seeing evolve is no different.
Coal, cattle are most damaging to the environment, study says
A United Nations-backed report released Monday says coal-fired power generation in Asia and cattle ranching in South America are the most damaging businesses for the environment, with hidden costs of those activities that exceed the value of their production.
The report, “Natural Capital at Risk – The Top 100 Externalities of Business,” says global output of basic goods – from cement and steel processing to agriculture, forestry, fisheries, mining and oil and gas exploration – caused damage totaling $7.3 trillion a year if pollution, water, greenhouse gases and waste were priced to reflect long-term impacts. The study was conducted by a business coalition for the Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB). The coalition’s backers include the United Nations, World Bank, businesses and conservation groups.
“The numbers in this report underline the urgency but also the opportunities for all economies in transitioning to a green economy,” Achim Steiner, head of the U.N. Environment Programme, said in a statement.
Coal-fired power generation in Asia, led by China, had estimated revenues of $443 billion per year but caused $452 billion in damage to nature, largely because greenhouse gases caused climate change and pollution harmed people’s health.
Cattle ranching in South America, especially in cleared parts of the Amazon forest, ranked second wit … Read the Rest
TEEB FOR BUSINESS COALITION STUDY SHOWS MULTI-TRILLION DOLLAR NATURAL CAPITAL RISK UNDERLINING URGENCY OF GREEN ECONOMY TRANSITION
London & New Delhi, 15 April 2013 – The report, “Natural Capital at Risk – The Top 100 Externalities of Business”, estimates the global top 100 environmental externalities are costing the economy world-wide around $4.7 trillion a year in terms of the economic costs of greenhouse gas emissions, loss of natural resources, loss of nature-based services such as carbon storage by forests, climate change and air pollution-related health costs. This was released today from The TEEB for Business Coalition during the Business for the Environment summit in New Delhi.
Companies and their investors face both an opportunity and a significant problem. Consumer demand is set to grow significantly over the next few years with the increase in middle class consumers, especially in emerging markets. However, this is against a backdrop of increasing resource scarcity and the degradation of our natural ecosystems. One of the challenges will be to understand the value of the natural systems we rely on – commonly referred to as natural capital – and how these systems can be managed. The current business model creates significant environmental externalities. For example, water is not usually priced according to how scarce it is. The report, authored by Trucost, identifies financial risk from environmental externalities e.g. damages from climate change, pollution, land conversion and depletion of natural resources, across business sectors at a regional level. It demonstrates that high impact business sectors make an economic loss when the costs of environmental damage such as their natural resource use and pollution costs are accounted for. However, businesses and investors can take account of natural capital impacts in decision making to manage risk and gain competitive advantage.
