Michael Journal: An example of banking philosophy by Louis Even | 1941
To seize the belongings of all nations and individuals
This is the real reason for poverty in the world
In reading the following article of Louis Even, first published in 1941, one will quickly realize that the plan of the Financiers to seize the people's wealth and the farmers' land has been going on for a long time. But today, one can clearly see that this plan has been fully realized. The people owe all of their country's wealth to the Bankers through national debts, and a majority of the farmers of developed countries have disappeared; those remaining must work night and day to pay interests to the Bankers. Let us all read again this important document that enlightens us all on the real reasons for poverty in the world.
It's starting to get big, but it's a total of about 10 petabytes of data … all the words of the Library of Congress are about 25 terabytes. So it's not a thousand Libraries of Congresses, but we're starting to get there.

Though rare, letters sent to prisoners of war are usually scrubbed clean of any potentially helpful information and sterilized, so to speak, prior to being delivered to the captive soldiers. A useful message may make it through if it is targeted to just the right people and disguised or coded well enough to evade detection.
"This Is What Winning Looks Like" is a disturbing new documentary about the ineptitude, drug abuse, sexual misconduct, and corruption of the Afghan security forces as well as the reduced role of US Marines due to the troop withdrawal. In part one, we see just how chaotic and hopeless the situation is in Sangin, one of the most violent towns in Afghanistan. - Vice

Government is bad for personal freedom. That argument is premised upon the truism that everything government does interferes with freedom because it either prohibits or compels. Everything it owns it has taken from others. Much of what it says is divorced from the truth. President Obama, like President George W. Bush, has argued that his first job is to keep America safe, and if he impairs personal freedom in the process, that is a small price to pay for safety. Many of my colleagues in the media on the left and right have bought this argument, notwithstanding its fallacies.

Despite the smash today in gold and silver, one of the most well connected hedge fund managers in the world told King World News that gold is heading thousands of dollars higher as the West enters a frightening economic “Ice Age.” Outspoken Hong Kong hedge fund manager William Kaye also discussed how America and its middle class will emerge from the coming financial destruction. Kaye, who 25 years ago worked for Goldman Sachs in mergers and acquisitions, had this to say in the fourth and final segment of his written interview series with KWN.
Kaye: “This is not a good setup. This is a setup in which gold has been suppressed, and paper instruments that people own have been artificially inflated. So when the system collapses on itself, and it will, the inevitable result will be that gold will be reset upwards (in price) somewhere between $5,000 and $10,000....
Ron Paul: Pessimistic on Washington, Positive on Gold
NEW YORK (MINEWEB) | Lawrence Williams | Wednesday, 15 May 2013
Ron Paul’s libertarian views and position with regard to gold and the U.S. Fed had considerable appeal to the audience at this year’s New York Metals and Mining Investment Conference.
If the audience demographic at the Metals & Minerals Investment Conference in New York was that of the U.S. as a whole, former U.S. senator Ron Paul would be U.S. President today! He was given a standing ovation by much of the audience at the beginning and end of his presentation and his speech was peppered with applause from the floor as he made point after point of strong appeal to those listening.

If this is what it takes for the media to finally wake the hell up, well, then good. Lie down with dogs, wake up with fleas.
And they're ALL itchy now. To wit:
When Attorney General Eric Holder took reporters' questions Tuesday afternoon, several asked about the Justice Department’s sweeping seizure of Associated Press phone records, a move condemned by prominent journalists, media outlets and civil liberties advocates.
