As Greek Default Fears Return, Government Considers "Borrowing" Pensions To Repay IMF

Greek short-term default risk jumped over 300bps today putting the odds of a restructuring at 50-50 within the next year as the warnings we issued last week with regard Greece's imminent default on its IMF loan loom. Seeking to reassure its lenders (and avoid yet more capital flight), Reuters reportsthe Greek government said it was "exploring solutions," including delaying payments to suppliers or try to raise up to 3 billion euros by borrowing from state entities such as pension funds.   

As Reuters reports, Athens is running out of options to fund itself despite striking a deal with the euro zone in February to extend its bailout by four months. Faced with a steep fall in revenues, it is expected to run out of cash by the end of March, possibly sooner.
"The Greek government has been exploring solutions ... to ensure there won't be a single problem with repaying the IMF loan, or its funding obligations in March," Government Spokesman Gabriel Sakellaridis told Greek radio.

So far, Athens's other funding options have stumbled upon problems.Transferring 1.9 billion euros worth of profits the European Central Bank made on buying Greek bonds will not be allowed until Greece has completed promised reforms.

Another option is the issuance of additional Treasury bills, but Athens's EU/IMF lenders have set a 15 billion euro cap on such debt and it has already been reached.

On Wednesday, Athens will go ahead with a regular six-month T-bill auction of 875 million euros to refinance a maturing issue, in a sale that will be closely watched as the government faces a possible funding gap.

When asked if Greece could cover its liquidity needs without issuing more T-bills or receiving the ECB profits, a finance ministry official said Athens had "alternatives", without specifying the options at hand.

Athens could save money by delaying payments to suppliers or try to raise up to 3 billion euros by borrowing from state entities such as pension funds though the government may already have used up part of this, a source has told Reuters.
Of course, this public pension fund 'cash' will all be repaid when Greece returns to growth and pays down its debt...
We are sure the Greek people will be enthused when they find out what the 'radical left' has in store for their funds...
*  *  *
The Greek banking index fell nearly 10 percent, while lenders National Bank of Greece, Piraeus Bank and Alpha Bank fell 10.0 to 11.8 percent to feature among the top decliners.
"The fears about a possible default for Greece are certainly not completely off the table," Gerhard Schwarz, head of equity strategy at Baader Bank in Munich, said.
Greek bank stocks (and bonds) are making it very clear that Greece's problems are over... now down hard from the pre-deal levels...

Jordan's King Urges "World War 3" Defeat ISIS

Lehman Moment For Austrian "Bad Bank" Means Worse Coming

Image result for lehman
Not "contained." Just six short months ago, the 2Y bonds of Austria's bank bank - HETA Asset Resolution AG - were trading well above par as the world and his mom reached for yield (~6%) in all the wrong places. Today, following the "spectacular development" over the weekend that the bank will be wound down due to the discovery of an $8.5bn "hole" in its balance sheet, the 2Y HETA bonds are trading below 50c on the dollar (at a yield of 54%). This is indeed Austria's "Lehman" moment as for the first time in the new European 'bail-in' era, senior debt is getting a massive haircut.

As we noted yesterday, the punchline, is that while the world was waiting for Greece to announce capital controls, or a bail-in over the past week, it was none other than one of the Europe's most pristeen credits (one which until recently was rated AAA/Aaa) that informed creditors a bail-in is imminent: "The finance ministry noted that creditors can be forced to contribute to the costs of winding down Heta - or "bailed in" - under new European legislation that Austria adopted this year so that taxpayers do not have to shoulder the entire burden."
Bloomberg confirms that the ministry announced that under new EU rules means creditors can be forced to share losses...
Resolution of wind-down vehicle of Hypo Alpe-Adria-Bank International represents first bail-in of senior debt under new European regime for imposing losses on bondholders, Gildas Surry and Geoffroy de Pellegars, analysts at BNP, write in client note.

Moratorium on liabilities of Heta Asset Resolution until May 31, 2016 gives time to work out necessary haircut and reduce the risk of litigation to a minimum

Bail-in legislation in Austria implements the European framework to the letter

Other jurisdictions that follow Austria’s example can be expected to treat resolution in this sequence: point of non-viability, independent review of assets vs liabilities, moratorium, haircut

Expect senior CDS old contract to trigger on Failure to Pay,and that HETAR govt-guaranteed sub bonds will continue paying (and trade with accrued interest)
*  *  *
And sure enough, the bonds have crashed...

Remember - these are senior unsecured notes of a major bank! Contagion is now a big problem for Austria (and its banking system).
*  *  *
Of course, this being Austria, and the Creditanstalt, aka the bank which failed in 1931 under almost identical circumstances and set off the dominos that led to a global financial crisis which in turn bank fanned the flames of the Great Depression, also being Austrian, suddenly everyone is asking: "what just happened and what happens next?"

One thing is certain when one bank's liabilities are another bank's assets, it is that such an arrangement is simply screaming for a systemic crisis to prove to everyone just how dumb this idea was from the get go.
The question is - how long do authorities let the contagion go before they 'change' the rules on bail-ins and apply taxpayer funds once again - as a one-off of course - to stabilize what is, after all, a well funded and highly liquid banking system... It appears HETA gave markets a glimpse behind the curtain as the lies of the recovery come out.

"Iran Nuke Deal" What Will It Bring?

Total Solar Eclipse On March 20th Falls In The Middle Of The Four Blood Red Moons

The total solar eclipse on March 20th falls on Nisan 1, which is the first day of the first month of the Biblical calendar. According to Jewish tradition, a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 is a sign of judgment. And this has certainly been true in the past. 

 For example, there was a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 in 70 AD. Later that year, the Romans attacked Jerusalem and completely destroyed the Temple. What makes all of this even more interesting is the fact that the solar eclipse on March 20th falls right in the middle of the blood moon tetrad, and it also happens to fall during the Shemitah year. 

 If you are not a believer, you may be tempted to dismiss all of this as some sort of extremely bizarre coincidence. If you are a believer, you also might be skeptical. But by the end of this article, at least you will understand what so many people are talking about right now. In the Scriptures, we are told that God created the sun and the moon, and that he intended for them to act as “signs”. The following comes from Genesis chapter one…

14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

So specifically how can the sun and moon be “signs” as God originally intended?

Well, one minister has discovered that eclipses on important Biblical dates have been associated with key world events throughout history. His name is Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, and he has pointed out that total eclipses do not take place on any other planet in our solar system

Total eclipses don’t take place on any other known planet, point out intelligent-design scientists. They only take place on Earth, the finely tuned planet where life exists that can actually view them. Biltz points out that the Bible says in Genesis that the sun, moon and stars were created specifically as signs for mankind, so His creation would know about the feasts (or appointed times) to have relationship with their Creator.

A number of years ago, Pastor Biltz discovered that a series of four blood moon eclipses would occur on important Biblical dates during 2014 and 2015. This kind of “blood moon tetrad” is very rare. It fact, it has only happened seven times before since the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This current blood moon tetrad is the eighth occurrence.

And according to Jewish tradition, blood red moons are an omen of war for Israel. The following comes from my previous article on the blood red moons

Is Israel going to be involved in a war during the blood red moons of 2014 and 2015? According to ancient Jewish tradition, a lunar eclipse is a harbinger of bad things for Israel. If that eclipse is blood red, that is a sign that war is coming. And blood red moons that happen during Biblical festivals seem to be particularly significant. There was a “tetrad” of blood red moons that fell during Passover 1967, the Feast of Tabernacles 1967, Passover 1968 and the Feast of Tabernacles 1968. And of course the 1967 war during which Israel took full control of Jerusalem took place during that time period. 

 There was also a “tetrad” of blood red moons that fell during Passover 1949, the Feast of Tabernacles 1949, Passover 1950 and the Feast of Tabernacles 1950. If you know your history, you already are aware that the Israeli War of Independence ended on July 20th, 1949. So does the blood red moon tetrad of 2014 and 2015 signal that another season of war is now upon us?

We already witnessed a war between Israel and Hamas in 2014, but personally I am convinced that more war could soon come to the Middle East. For much, much more on this, please see this article.

But what I want to talk about now is the total solar eclipse that is coming up on March 20th. The chart below comes from propheciesoftheendtimes.com, and it shows that it falls right in the middle of this series of blood red moons…

As I mentioned above, when a solar eclipse falls on Nisan 1 it is traditionally considered to be a sign that judgment is coming to the world…

“Our Rabbis taught, when the sun is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for the whole world. This may be illustrated by a parable. To what can this be compared? To a human being who made a banquet for his servants and put up for them a
lamp. When he became wroth with them he said to his servant, ‘Take away the lamp from them, and let them sit in the dark’. 

It was taught: R. Meir said, whenever the luminaries [moon] are in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel since they are inured to blows. This may be compared to a school teacher who comes to school with a strap in his hand. Who becomes apprehensive? He who is accustomed to be daily punished. Our Rabbis taught, When the sun is in eclipse it is a bad omen for idolaters; when the moon is in eclipse, it is a bad omen for Israel, since Israel reckons by the moon and idolaters by the sun…”

—Succah 29a

Of course Jewish tradition is not Scripture, but it is very interesting to note.

And what we do know is that we have seen this kind of pattern before.

On Nisan 1 in 70 AD, there was a total solar eclipse. But that was not the only eclipse during that time period. In fact, there were a whole series of eclipses that took place on key Biblical dates before and after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem.

The following information comes from a book authored by Pastor Mark Biltz entitled “Blood Moons“…

October 18, 69 AD (Sukkot): partial solar eclipse

March 30, 70 AD (Nisan 1): total solar eclipse

April 14, 70 AD (Passover): penumbral lunar eclipse

Temple destroyed 9th of Av, 70 AD

September 21, 70 AD (Rosh Hashanah): annual solar eclipse

October 8, 70 AD (Sukkot): penumbral lunar eclipse

March 4, 71 AD (Purim): partial lunar eclipse

March 20, 71 AD (Nisan 1): hybrid solar eclipse

September 12, 71 AD (Rosh Hashanah): hybrid solar eclipse

Now we find ourselves in the middle of a similar series of eclipses.

So could it be possible that this total eclipse on March 20th is a sign of judgment?

Or is all of this just a giant coincidence?

Either way, at least now you understand what so many people are talking about.

There Are Several Chicago Style FEMA Camps in Every State

prison 1
As I was investigating the FEMA camp run and maintained by the Chicago PD, I kept running into the topic of privatized prisons. I first wrote about privatized prisons almost seven years ago. Subsequently, I decided to take a fresh look and what I found was shocking. The privatized prison industry owns and controls nearly every elected official. State officials are literally “stealing” money from education and putting that money into the privatized prison system. Most states have guaranteed privatized prisons 100% occupancy rates and the conditions of these prisons are increasingly barbaric and clearly fit the definition of slave labor.

The United States Has the Highest Incarceration Rate In the World

There are over two million inmates in American prisons, or one in 743 people.  Communist China, which has five times the population of the United States, has 500,000 less inmates. The United States has only 5% of the world’s population, but has 25% of the world’s prison population.
In 1972, the U.S. had less than 300,000 inmates. By 1990, the incarceration rate had skyrocketed to one million and by today, the rate has more than doubled again. Again, I ask why?  Because there is very big monied interests behind the growth industry of privatized prisons.
According to Charles Campbell, author of  The Intolerable Hulks (2001), the privatization of the prisons movement has its origins in the Revolutionary War period. England began to put undesirables and prisoners in prison ships. The U.S. fully embraced the use of private prisons during the Reconstruction Period (1865-1876) in the South, following the Civil War. Plantation owners and business owners needed “free” replacements to compensate for the loss of their previous slave laborers. In 1868, convict leases were awarded to private business interests in order to bolster their labor workforce and the practice continued until the early 20th century.
Today, this practice has been taken over by private corporate interests who are increasingly taking over our prison system and this unholy practice is no less exploitative than the slave labor abuses of the past and as in all forms of slavery, it is being fueled by profit.
prison vs education spending

In California, state government  spends more on prisons than on colleges. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities shows that the growth of state spending on prisons in recent years has far outpaced the growth of spending on education. After adjusting for inflation, state general fund spending on prison-related expenses increased over 140 percent between 1986 and 2013. During the same period, state spending on K-12 education increased only 69 percent, while higher education saw an increase of less than six percent. Last year, the NAACP decried the trend towards spending more money on privatized prisons than on education!
Rates of violent crime and property crime have actually fallen over the years, even while incarceration rates have risen. Therefore, it appears that states’ more aggressive incarceration policies are behind the higher prison rates. Private prison companies have been accused of supporting and even sponsoring legislation such as “three-strikes,” “truth in sentencing” and harsh immigration enforcement laws, which drive up incarceration rates. From the beginnings of privatized prison system, in the early 1980s, both CCA and GEO, the two largest private prison corporations, were politically-connected. CCA co-founder Tom Beasley was a former chairman of the Tennessee Republican Party and had served on a committee that selected the head of Tennessee’s prison system.

“These policies which have led to longer prison sentences and more people being incarcerated, Through their Political Action Committees (PACs) and contributions by their executives and employees, private prison companies have given over $6 million to state politicians and more than $835,000 to federal lawmakers since 2000, according to the JPI report”. The privatized prison corporations are buying off the politicians to put more people in prison for longer periods of time and they are doing so with our money. 

More prisoners equates to more profit for private prison companies, and the greatest success of the CCA and the GEO  has been in the federal system where the number of prisoners held in privately-operated facilities has grown at an average annual rate of 10%.

Meet America’s Slave Masters

According to the Pew Center in their study The Long Reach of American Corrections (March 2009), it costs nearly $79 per day to house an inmate which is 20 times the cost of putting someone on probation. Wouldn’t it make sense to sentence nonviolent offenders to probation and save the taxpayers’ money? Of course it would, unless you are Vanguard Investments,  the largest owner of privatized citizens in the form of the Correctional Corporation of America (CCA), GEO (2nd largest private prison company), WackenhutViacomAOL Time Warner and they are all controlled by the Vanguard Family of Funds. You remember Vanguard don’t you?
The problem of prison slave labor, goes right to the top of this government and these corporations have a powerful political ally.
This is the same Vanguard that moved money prior to the Gulf Oil Explosion in a manner which made massive sums of money for key investors in the same manner as did Transocean, Goldman Sachs and Halliburton. And one of those insiders that benefited from the Gulf Oil Explosion was President Obama as he was vested in Vanguard I and Vanguard II. The late Bob Chapman reported on this Obama conflict of interest as did I in an earlier article.  Obama’s corruption is not limited to his investors having and acting on foreknowledge of the Gulf Oil Explosion, he is an active investor in the slave labor motivated Prison Industrial Complex.
President Obama benefits and profits from prison slave labor.

Overt Slave Labor

wanted inmates

Many of Wall Street’s giants have been invited to the party and are reaping huge profits. The following is a list of the corporations that contract with CCA and GEO to produce American slave labor goods. They include Intel, Northern Telecom, TWA, Nordstrom’s Boeing, Motorola, Microsoft, AT&T, prison for profitWireless, 3Com, Revlon, Macy’s, Pierre Cardin. Texas Instrument, Dell, Compaq, Honeywell, Hewlett-Packard, Nortel, Lucent Technologies, Target, and countless more. All of these businesses are excited about the economic boom generation by prison slave labor and most actively lobby for mandatory sentencing.
Generally, prison inmates in state run penitentiaries generally receive minimum wage for their work. In Agenda 21 controlled Colorado, they only receive about $2 per hour, well under the minimum for state run prisons. However, Colorado inmates are rich compared to inmates in privately-run prisons where they can receive as little as 17 cents per hour. This is worse than Walmart slave labor in China! The highest-paying private prison run by the CCA pays 50 cents per hour for “highly skilled positions.” I am not sure how this is even legal as I do not remember reading anything about the 13th Amendment being repealed.

Prison Slave Labor Has Become One of the Mainstays of the American Economy

Since 2010, this trend is accelerating.
If there is a silver lining as America has found and antidote to the loss of manufacturing through the various free trade agreements (i.e. NAFTA, CAFTA). Unfortunately, prison slave labor is the solution. The Left Business Observer identifies private corporate interests benefiting from prison slave labor which includes the manufacturing of “93% of all paints and paintbrushes; 92% of stove assembly; 46% of body armor; 36% of home appliances; 30% of headphones/microphones/speakers; and 21% of office furniture.  This is a kind of Walmart for prisons and your State Legislatures are promoting this as a kind of cost savings, but they guarantee 90-100% prison bed occupancy rates. And we wonder why mandatory sentencing  has replaced judicial discretion when deciding the disposition of a criminal case. Sadly, this is only the tip of the iceberg.

Time Off for Good Behavior

The CCA, the largest owner of privatized prisons.
prison slave labor

In these normally overcrowded prisons, inmates may get their sentences reduced for “good behavior,” but for any violation of prison rules, they get 30 days tacked on to their sentences. I thought only a judge, under the Fifth Amendment due process provisions of the Constitution, can impose a prison sentence. This translates into more profits for CCA. According to a study of New Mexico prisons, it was found that CCA inmates lost  their “time off for good behavior”  at an 800% higher rate than inmates in state run prisons. CCA’s prisons are notoriously understaffed and this under-staffing leads to more acting out by the inmates which in turn leads to longer sentences resulting in more profit.
Therefore, one of the profit motivators for CCA is administration by neglect. In other words, they make more money if the prisons are poorly run and decidedly more dangerous.
If only the stock market was so reliable as a revenue generator.

Rockefeller Scams the System in Search of Profits

In New York,  Nelson Rockefeller’s heralded anti-drug law, initiated in 1973, provided for a mandatory prison sentences of 15 years to life for possession of four ounces of any illegal drug. Fifteen years to life for possessing four ounces of marijuana? Mr. Rockefeller, what could possibly be the motive for such strict drug laws? Answer, the same motive on why Obama has his money in Vanguard.
Besides Nelson Rockefeller, the privatized prison system has enjoyed having low friends in high places for a very long time beginning with Nancy Reagan’s “Just say no” and her husband’s War on Drugs program. Ironically under Reagan, his CIA traded guns for drugs in the Air America Iran-Contra Affair. Enter former president, George H. W. Bush, and an ex CIA director, and things only got worse. Bush helped fuel the growth of the industry during his presidency. And upon leaving office, he became a player in privatized prisons.
Under Reagan and Bush, Federal drug laws became more draconian.  Presently, Federal law mandates five years’ imprisonment with no hope of parole for possession of five grams of crack or 3.5 ounces of heroin. Further, Federal law provides for 10 years imprisonment  for possession of less than two ounces of crack. A sentence of five years for cocaine powder requires possession of 500 grams. This puts the United States on a par with nations like Turkey with regard to excessive sentences handed out for simply drug possession. There can only be one outcome from this trend curve, more slave labor and a lot more smiling faces on Wall Street.

A Problem That Is Growing Exponentially

Let’s take my state, Arizona,  and let it serve as a case in point with regard to this troublesome issue. Critical services, such as road repair and education funding, are being obliterated in the name of supporting the growing cancer of privatized prisons.  New Arizona Governor, Doug Ducey,  has begun his push for lawmakers to spend an additional $70 million a year to house more inmates in private prisons. Ducey wants to build another private prison in Arizona. This is coming at a time when the State of Arizona owes the public schools $1.3 billion in voter mandated fees. The courts have upheld the state’s debt to the schools but the Governor refuses to release the funds. Arizona Governor and State Legislature is stealing money from the classroom and handing it over to the privatized prison system. Of course, Ducey could use the universal excuse of all children, “that everyone else is doing it”, and he would be correct as this is a nationwide phenomenon.
I would encourage all readers to look into your state’s practices in this area. You will find that the majority of the legislation that results in locking people up for minor offenses and for longer periods of time, originates out of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)and this is why “Truth in Sentencing” is the same in New York as it is in California. These laws are being written by the CCA lobbyists at ALEC functions, in which 2,400 State Legislators attend and they are handed “model legislation” to take back home and subsequently mandatory sentencing  becomes the law of the land.
Ducey is so bought and paid for that even a fellow Arizona Republican, State Senator,  Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, wants to know why the prison population, after leveling off for several years, has taken a sudden jump. She asked about the state’s 1994 “Truth in Sentencing” law that requires inmates to serve at least 85 percent of their sentence before being released. I am certain that if Allen wants to return for another term, she will quietly fade away as she will be chastised by the Republican party and will be defeated with PAC money from CCA and GEO.
The present privatized prison system operates on the same principle and it is quite effective. The average person is sentenced from 5-7 years in prison. There is no rehabilitation, only the prison life which produces a more hardened criminal. When the convict is released, they find it virtually impossible to get a job because of their ex-con label. Within three years of release from prison, 90% of all prisoners return. Can you imagine if every restaurant had a 90% return rate from its customers? The private prison business may have the best return on investment in America.


Should we really be concerned about the “FEMA camp” in Chicago? Apparently not, please consider the following quote as it leaves one concluding that what is going on in Chicago is the status quo with regard to incarceration practices within the United States.

“The private contracting of prisoners for work fosters incentives to lock people up. Prisons depend on this income. Corporate stockholders who make money off prisoners’ work lobby for longer sentences, in order to expand their workforce. The system feeds itself,” says a study by the Progressive Labor Party, which accuses the prison industry of being “an imitation of Nazi Germany with respect to forced slave labor and concentration camps.”

We are witnessing a convergence of incarceration practices under one philosophy. Soon, every lock up facility will be run like the Chicago FEMA camp.
Since the advent of privatized prisons in 1984, America has witnessed the passage of laws that require minimum sentencing, without regard for any extenuating circumstances. Our prison system is experiencing a much larger percentage of work by prisoners, thus creating profits for Wall Street which in turn motivate the incarceration of more people for longer periods of time. And privatized prison corporate investors make happy campaign contributors. Therefore, you can bet that the proverbial poop rolls down hill to the cops and the push is on to incarcerate more and more. Some argue that is fine, but when one of the fastest growing segments of our prison population are children, we all need to sit up take notice and take action.
Again, this system is very effective and efficient. With only five percent of the world’s population, the United States has over 25% of the world’s prison population. As a people, we are very ingenious as our corporations have learned to make money from virtually any life circumstance. Do your kids have a “get out of jail card”?   What do I mean? Part two will look at how the system is designed to funnel children directly into prison and the problem is growing at an exponential rate. Are you willing to allow your child to become a slave to your state’s private prison system? If not, part two of this series is required reading.

Obama threatened to shoot down Israel Air Force planes if Israel Strike Iran

Image result for Obama threatened to shoot down Israel Air Force planes if Israel Strike Iran

A Kuwaiti newspaper is reporting that President Obama, angered at Israeli plans to strike Iran nuclear facilities in 2014, threatened to shoot down Israeli planes before they could reach their targets.

The paper, Al Jarida, cites only anonymous sources and just a handful of other publications have followed the story. But according to israelnationalnews.com, the Arabic newspaper quoted “well-placed” sources as saying Benjamin Netanyahu and two top aides “had decided to carry out air strikes against Iran’s nuclear program after consultations with top security commanders.”

“The Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel’s back,” the website said.

The Al Jarida story says that an Israeli minister with “good ties” to the Obama administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, who passed the word to Obama. The president then threatened to shoot down any planes in order to stop the Israeli attack.

The Ma’an News, a Palestinian news agency, did pick up the Al Jarida story, translating the piece. Their article says: “Netanyahu had to abort the operation and since then relations between Israel and the United States have been declining, according to the sources quoted in the report.”

Several websites were dubious about the Al Jarida. JewishPress.com wrote that “the report seems unbelievable, but the newspaper has an interesting track record.”

Al-Jarida is considered to be a relatively liberal publication whose editor Mohammed al-Sager previously won the International Press Freedom Award of the Committee to Protect Journalists ‘for courageous reporting on political and human rights issues in the face of government threats of censorship and prosecution.’

He also is a former Kuwaiti parliament member and chairman of the legislature.

And that website concludes by saying the veracity of the story may not be the most important facet. “The report may be fantasy, but the fact that Al Jarida dared to report it says a lot about perceptions of the relationship between Netanyahu and Obama.”

The story was starting to pick up pace on Sunday, with Netanyahu already on his way to Washington, D.C., to deliver a much anticipated speech to Congress.

“I’m going on a crucial and historic mission,” Netanyahu said before his departure from Ben-Gurtion Airport, accompanied by his wife, according to YnetNews.com.

“I feel I am the representative of all Israel, even those who disagree with me. I feel a deep concern for the fate of Israel. I will do everything to guarantee our future.”

Putin Predicted Washington Would Employ Assassination Tactic Against Russia

Image result for Putin Predicted Washington Would Employ Assassination Tactic Against Russia

Paul Craig Roberts

The Saker provides a one minute video with translation of Putin explaining two years ago the Russian government’s concern that an overseas entity would use a false flag assassination within Russia in order to create an “involuntary martyr” that the Western media would use to demonize Russia.

According to this report by The Saker, http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-boris-nemtsov-assassination-russias-non-system-opposition-refuses-to-blame-the-kremlin/5434206 , the Washington-financed Russian opposition has not, as Washington hoped it would, joined the Western anti-Putin media campaign. Possibly the Washington-financed Russian NGOs have wised up from observing events in Ukraine. In place of “more democracy,” they got a Washington stooge government squandering Ukraine’s last cent on a losing war.

The most likely explanation of Nemtsov’s murder is that the CIA decided, as Nemtsov was completely marginalized as an opposition politician with 5% as against Putin’s 85%, that Nemtsov was worth more dead than alive. But the ploy, if that is what it is, has not worked inside Russia.

Part of the circumstantial evidence that Nemtsov’s murder was a CIA tactic to destabilize Russia is the orchestrated US media. The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, NPR, and the rest of the presstitutes were ready on cue with reports insinuating that Putin was responsible. Stephen Lendman has done a good job tracking the US media’s unquestioning adherence to Washington’s propaganda line. http://sjlendman.blogspot.com

On February 28 NPR’s report consisted of a sound bite from a dissident Russian in exile who implied that Nemtsov was actually a rival to Putin with the population split between the two and that Putin eliminated his rival. No counterview to this abject nonsense was offered. At one time NPR was an alternative voice. Today NPR belongs to the Republican Party and the corporations whose advertising revenues are larger than listener donations.

If the Russian investigation discovers CIA involvement, the Russian government will keep it quiet. The audacity of Washington murdering a washed-up Russian politician in order to blame the Russian government bespeaks of war. Putin, unlike Washington, does not want war. If the culprit(s) is not found, it will look like a coverup. So someone has to be blamed. The Russian police have already suggested that possibly the key to the murder is the attractive young woman with Nemtsov when he was shot down. Nemtsov might have been trespassing on the property of a dangerous man, possibly a member of the Russian mafia.

Like everything else that happens, Americans will be given by the presstitutes an explanation that coincides with the interests of Washington. All who rely on the US media will never know why Nemtsov was murdered, or anything else for that matter.

GMO dangers revealed by former U.S. government scientist

(NaturalNews) Since 1996, when genetically modified organisms (GMOs) were first introduced, we have seen a dramatic rise in the rates of food allergies, autism, reproductive disorders and digestive problems. Of course, companies like Monsanto, DuPont and Syngenta - which own approximately half of the entire proprietary seed market - would have you believe that GMO dangers don't exist. Yet, nothing could be further from the truth.

Independent GMO research gets attacked and suppressed. But, on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, you'll get to hear (first hand) what a former USDA research microbiologist has to say about the dangers of GMOs. After listening to this program - you'll think twice about our food supply and, hopefully, have the confidence to share this news with your family and friends. Join us for a great show!

One of the biggest lies connected to GMO technology exposed

Agricultural technology corporations, like Monsanto, continue to push the notion that the use of GMO seeds will reduce the need for toxic chemicals in farming. Yet, in the past 5 years, due to the development of weed-resistant crops - farmers have been required to spray more herbicides on their fields - in an effort to kill the weeds. This is having a devastating effect on our environment and human health.

In fact, the only people who stand to gain from GMO technology are the companies that own the seeds and the chemicals used on the crops generated from these genetically manipulated seeds. Think about it - if GMO seeds are supposed to reduce the need for toxic chemicals - why are we seeing such a growth in glyphosate sales?

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research, the global glyphosate herbicide market was valued, in 2012, at $5.46 billion and they expect the market to grow to $8.79 billion by 2019. In the past 5 years, we now see this toxic substance, glyphosate, in air and water samples plus within the blood of unborn children.

Something is terribly wrong with this picture - don't you think?

On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, you'll hear directly from a former USDA scientist, who has dedicated his life to understanding the hazardous effects of genetically engineered crops on soil quality and plant health. If you care about your food supply - do NOT miss this program.

How government agencies and corporations deceive the public to ensure corporate profits

According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FDA 'encourages developers of GE plants to consult with the agency before marketing their products...Although the consultation is voluntary.'

In other words, the agency in charge of 'food safety' does not even require a single safety study and will not require the labeling of GMOs or even a notification before a GE food is sold to the public. Clearly, the FDA has failed to uphold its responsibilities as a watchdog for the U.S. population.

In fact, secret memos - from the FDA - made public thanks to a lawsuit reveal an overwhelming agreement among the FDA's own scientists that GMOs can create 'unpredictable, hard-to-detect side effects.' These scientists have asked for long-term safety studies but the White House has ordered the FDA to promote biotechnology.

To make matter worse, the FDA appointed Michael Taylor as the 'Deputy Commissioner for Foods'. By the way, Michael Taylor was an attorney for Monsanto - but, I guess we're supposed to still trust he keeps public safety as his top priority, right?

If you really want to hear the truth about GMOs and its effect on the environment and our food supply - be sure to join us on the next NaturalNews Talk Hour.

This week's guest: Robert Kremer, Ph.D., retired research microbiologist with U.S.D.A. Agricultural Research Service

Discover the real threats behind GMO technology and foods - Sun. Mar. 1

Robert Kremer, Ph.D. is a Professor of Soil Microbiology at the University of Missouri and recently retired after a 32-year career as a research microbiologist with U.S.D.A. Agricultural Research Service.

His original research involves soil microbe-plant-pesticide interactions; soil health assessment; and impacts of genetically-engineered crops on soil ecology and biology. Dr. Kremer is a Certified Soil Scientist, a Fellow of the American Society of Agronomy and of the Weed Science Society of America.

U.S. regulatory agencies ignore the scientific evidence of GMO dangers. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Robert Kremer, a former research microbiologist of the USDA Agricultural Research Service talk about how GMO technology - including the use of glyphosate, a toxic herbicide developed by Monsanto is destroying soil quality, plant health and the environment. This is a rare opportunity to hear the truth!
