Massive, unprecedented ET interventions are completely disrupting any and all plans to start World War III, according to multiple whistleblowers. This and other fascinating developments suggest that 2012 may live up to many prophets' expectations.

NEGATIVE FORCES ARE REAL — AND SO IS THE RESISTANCE
Whether we like it or not, everyone is now being confronted with evidence that the world is being controlled by powerful, occult, negative forces behind the scenes.
In my full-length e-book entitled Financial Tyranny, I shared everything I have gathered on this controversial subject — since I first found out about it in 1992.
If you have already read Financial Tyranny, the full scope of the problem we now face will be much more apparent as you enter into this investigation. Some of it will become clear as you read this first section.
This is the sequel to Financial Tyranny — where we talk about the "good side".
Multiple insider sources, each of whom have been "vetted out" for their credibility and trustworthiness, have now confirmed that mass arrests of thousands of key conspirators in this vast cabal are about to occur.
A highly secretive, highly coordinated operation — working for the good of humanity — is about to make its move.
The Pentagon "good guys" are now in full political and logistical cooperation with a remarkable 134-nation alliance — to bring the perpetrators to justice and free our planet.
The security around this enormous operation has been vast. Even those who will be affected by it — and arrested — have no idea of the staggering scope of what is about to be revealed before the eyes of the public.
Very recently I had four hours of verbal discussion with a new, public, high-level whistleblower regarding these imminent mass arrests.
We are set to record an interview at 6PM Pacific time for public release on this website — within hours of when this first section should be posted. I will post-produce and release this interview as soon as possible.
I fully confirmed this man's bonafides and his testimony with one of my top insiders, who I brought into the discussion.
Dozens of specific points, not available in any public form, were authenticated in this vetting-out process.
22 TRUCKLOADS' WORTH OF DOCUMENTS
We now know that the plan for mass arrests has been very actively in the works for at least 33 years. A five-inch thick briefing document was presented to our new contact in 1979 that outlined the whole plan.
A staggering wealth of irrefutable evidence is backing this plan, including over 22 eighteen-wheeler truckloads' worth of documents that have long since been scanned and secured in multiple locations.
We were told that one single file-box of documents like this was strong enough to bring down the former Italian government, as you see here:
Prosecutors demand 5-year sentence for Berlusconi over witness tampering
Prosecutors have demanded a five-year prison sentence for former Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi in his trial on corruption charges.
Prosecutor Fabio De Pasquale asked the court on Wednesday to find the former PM guilty of having paid a British lawyer $600,000 to lie in other trials.
Those proceedings involve charges of tax evasion and false accounting during Berlusconi’s business career.
Other cases pending against him in the Milan courts include a trial on charges of having paid for sex with an underage prostitute. Berlusconi stepped down as the Premier in November last year.
EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO REASSURE AND PROTECT THE PUBLIC
The people who are about to do this are well aware of every concern you have — as an informed reader of truth websites and materials.
Martial law will NOT be declared when this happens.
The military will NOT take control of the government.
Innocent civilians will NOT be imprisoned or harmed in any way.
Any troops who attempt to carry out unlawful orders of this sort, on behalf of the "bad guys," will be outnumbered and resisted.
Every effort will be made to focus on eliminating the problem — and immediately returning the power to the people in an orderly fashion.
New elections will need to be organized, considering that many, if not most politicians in the United States could be found culpable — either directly or through failure to have taken action.
This alliance intends to break out free energy and many other technologies that were stolen from us. The fossil fuel economy ensured that occult global control and the systematic killing of our planet would continue.
THEY DIDN'T PLEDGE THEIR LIVES FOR THE COMFORT OF BANKERS
We now know that 90 percent of the US military are aware of this plan in some form — and at least 60 percent are in support of it. Many more federal marshals, police, active and retired military, and civilians will help out once they realize what is happening.
Our warriors pledged their lives to protect us. The world is not in a cartoon war between "good" and "evil", with everyone in government, corporations, media and military on the "dark" side.
Our brave and valiant soldiers have taken an oath: To protect the Constitution of the United States, and its people, against all enemies — foreign AND domestic.
They did not pledge their lives — their blood — to keep a handful of sociopathic, genocidal bankers in control of the planet, its people and its resources.
We all have to live here. And if your superiors are systematically killing the planet, they are not superior.
They are similar to a massive infection that must be treated with powerful antibiotics — before it destroys the host.
Everyone has seen enough Illuminati movies by now to know that if you work for these people, no matter how high up or important you think you may be, they will undoubtedly betray you.
IT'S TIME TO READ THE TEA LEAVES
Many, many top generals left active duty, since Bush I, because they realized what was happening — but they certainly did not retire.
We all owe them a significant debt of gratitude.
Everything is now coming to a head — very rapidly.
The signs may be mysterious, but they are increasingly obvious.
We will review some of them in this investigation.
IT MAY SEEM DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE
I do understand the difficulty of believing that such a massive, coordinated maneuver would even be possible.
If you speak to real military people, and truly understand the role they chose to fulfill, the bigger question is: "How could they NOT do something like this?"
How could they stand by and do nothing while the entire planet itself — and all life on it — is being destroyed?
If a mother and child are being tortured to death in front of you, and you have the means to stop it, would you just stand there and watch?
Unless you are a sociopath, you would do something. And most people — including our military personnel — are not sociopaths. That number is only estimated to be 1 in 100 people, as we will see later on.
IT WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE IN A STRICTLY 'CLOSED' SYSTEM
Nonetheless, the scope of the negative side is so vast that it seemed impossible to be defeated — or even resisted.
If our planet was a strictly 'closed' system with no outside players and no higher spiritual forces involved, I would definitely have to agree that this plan is so well-thought out, so massive, systemic and vast that it would be nearly impossible to defeat.
However, Divine Intervention — not a fantasy, but very real and very tangible assistance — is insuring that our movement into true freedom and peace will occur… with the absolute minimum amount of damage possible.
Dozens of ancient cultures featured the same prophecies about the times we are now in. These prophecies all directed our attention to a 26,000-year cycle in the Earth's axis as being the key issue to study.
As I revealed in The Source Field Investigations, the Mayan Calendar, Egyptian astronomy, Greek astronomy and Hindu astronomy all triangulated on the period of 2012-2014 as the end of the cycle — ushering in a Golden Age of peace and prosperity.
[Technically, the Hindus are the only ones to have mentioned 2014, by tying it to a rare conjunction involving Jupiter.]
The oldest, original prophecies were not doom and gloom oriented at all. They indicated that although we would go through difficulties, like we've already been seeing, the end results would be extremely positive.
EVERYONE IN THE PENTAGON IS NOW AWARE OF IT
Top insiders have now confirmed that everyone in the Pentagon is now aware that some form of Divine Intervention is happening — regardless of what side they are on.
Most of them do not know who is responsible. Even the "bad guys" are now saying it could be "Angels or Aliens" doing this stuff.
No one on Earth has the technology to do the things they are now seeing — regardless of how classified that technology may be.
It is utterly astonishing that even the "bad guys" are now acknowledging this may be an angelic intervention.
Very few people have dared to break ranks and reveal what is happening, as this information is considered very highly classified.
They know that speaking out could get them, and their families, tortured and killed.
I have decided to personally take the risks involved in order to help alleviate fear — and help you understand what is happening.
WE HAVE NEVER BEEN ABANDONED
Divine Intervention is very real.
You may be surprised to discover how extensive the intervention has now become — and how far back in time the trail of evidence goes.
The forces behind the great religions of the world are not mythological. They are not historical artifacts buried away in scrolls and texts fewer and fewer people bother to read.
They've been here all along. They have openly walked among us in every ancient culture — and were highly revered.
They have their own rules, their own governing bodies, and their own code of ethics.
They have avoided appearing in any obvious, worldwide, public fashion for well over 1000 years now.
Nonetheless, they have been thoroughly involved this entire time — guiding and steering our evolution.
This critical step allowed us to become "modern", and to give us the opportunity to forget that they ever really existed — even as they continued to guide our development, behind the scenes.
And now — very recently — the rules have changed… and they are being permitted to do much, much more to help the Earth and its people evolve into a higher state of consciousness.
A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE INVESTIGATION
You can't fully understand the truth if you are still living in denial.
Some of the strongest denial is from people who still believe that the "bad guys" are winning — and are unwilling or unable to see the obvious signs of how the whole house of cards is coming down.
For that same reason, in the first section of this investigation, we will go through a variety of pieces of current-day evidence — showing how Financial Tyranny is already very, very close to collapsing.
One of the most shocking pieces of evidence is a very public divorce between warring Illuminati factions — namely JP Morgan/Federal Reserve versus the occult powers that have secretly occupied and seized control of the Vatican.
After reviewing many of these types of current examples, we will then debut brand-new whistleblower testimony — suggesting 9/11 was indeed an "inside job."
This adds valuable context to our discussion of Financial Tyranny — and gives even more evidence that the official story was a complete fabrication.
We will also explore the shocking evidence that a 7.4 earthquake on March 20th in Mexico was man-made — for a nefarious purpose, by a group that knows it has run out of time.
SECTIONS II AND III WILL CONSIDERABLY EXPAND THE INVESTIGATION
In Section II, we will explore the mysteries, shared by insiders at great personal risk, revealing how Divine Intervention is occurring — to prevent World War III and defeat Financial Tyranny.
Some of this material has already been distributed online. However, I will be featuring many other fascinating data points that have remained highly classified and unavailable to the public up until now.
Then as we head into Section III, we will open up the vault, so to speak — and explore an astonishing wealth of data that helps explain who is performing these increasingly bizarre interventions — and why.
This stunning body of information has been available to us all along — and has been almost completely overlooked.
Most of the pages I gathered this data from still have less than 50 hits — as of today's date.
Section III will add incredible context to everything we've discussed up until then… and you won't want to miss it. I myself didn't realize what we really had until I went back and did the "homework."
Some of this new data came in the form of highly clever time-encoded prophecies that could not be fully understood and appreciated until the actual dates took place.
As it turns out, the date of March 13th, 2012 was given, years in advance, as a pivotal moment in the defeat of the Old World Order. This was all documented — and can easily be verified.
I was stunned to discover this data, for the first time, on March 11, 2012. I would have loved to have been fast enough to get it posted the next day, but this investigation could not be rushed.
March 13th was also when the ancient cycles of the Mayan Calendar went into full lock-step synchronization — regardless of which of three counting systems you use.
These cycles will now remain harmonized — right straight through until the Calendar's conclusion on December 21, 2012.
Of course, perma-skeptics will immediately get a satisfying laugh from this — and that's fine — but in The Source Field Investigations, chapter 16, page 337-358, I proved that the Mayan Calendar cycles are all neatly tied in with planetary and celestial movements.
There is solid scientific data for how planetary movements affect human behavior and emotions, which I am incorporating into my new book, The Synchronicity Key, due out this fall.
BREATHTAKING REAL-WORLD CORRELATION TO THE PROPHECY
A very interesting real-world correlation occurred around the prophetic March 13th date.
The very next day after this cycle synchronization occurred — March 14th, 2012 — a top Goldman Sachs official blew the whistle on Financial Tyranny… triggering an avalanche that has only just begun.
Goldman Sachs is one of the main Federal Reserve banking families — along with the likes of JP Morgan, the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds.
THOSE WHO ARE OUTSIDE OF TIME
I have had many personal examples of "angelic" or "extraterrestrial" forces bending time and giving me accurate prophecies. Many of them have been documented on this website.
As one recent example, last February I published very powerful dreams telling me "the next disaster on the scope of the BP oil spill" was about to occur — and three weeks later we had the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
I have twenty years of documenting my dreams every morning. They have been remarkably accurate in predicting the future.
Four years after I began this practice, I established direct contact with the people who are helping this planet "from above."
For this same reason, I do not see a difference between "angels" and "extraterrestrials."
The media has manipulated us into believing extraterrestrials are scary creatures.
Once people realize that the vast majority of them are humans — and in many cases nearly indistinguishable from us in their appearance — the fear factor will significantly reduce.
WE ARE ALREADY AN INTERSTELLAR SPECIES
Over the years I have built up a team of reliable and trustworthy intelligence sources — people who have direct access to various parts of the highly classified insider world.
The UFO cover-up has been a key part of this insider world all along. Modern computer technology is only one of many tools we have reverse-engineered from this "celestial endowment" of deliberately crashed discs.
If events like Roswell hadn't happened, we may not have developed computer technology at all. Thankfully, we now have the full power of the Internet as we move through the great prophetic year of 2012.
Furthermore, the technologies we did not get public access to are so advanced that everything we see in Star Trek, Stargate and just about any other sci-fi movie you can think of is available now — ready to use.
Many insiders have confirmed this. You can see them, hear them and meet them at conferences. The main avenues for Disclosure have been Dr. Steven Greer's Disclosure Project and Kerry Cassidy and Bill Ryan's Project Camelot. I have closely worked with both groups.
Laughter and sarcasm is simply the result of an elaborate brainwashing campaign — ongoing since the 1940s — and it is rooted in fear. This fear was programmed — by an astonishing crush of xenophobic Hollywood propaganda films.
Regardless of most people's inability to believe such a vast conspiracy is possible, earth humanity is already an interstellar species. The truth simply hasn't been aired in the mainstream media… yet.
Our opinions have been cleverly manipulated by a vast, occult conspiracy going back hundreds of years in the past — if not thousands.
The higher forces ultimately are not allowed to intervene, beyond a certain level, before a given moment in time. That moment has now arrived — as has been predicted for thousands of years.
Prior to the moment of mass, public Divine Intervention, the negative forces on Earth will be confused — as many of their dirty tricks will be allowed to occur, while many others — far more devastating — are completely blocked.
The negative elite intended for 9/11 to be the "kill shot" that would defeat all resistance — and usher in the New World Order.
History has a great sense of irony, as 9/11 became the critical error that triggered a global awakening — and ensured the cabal's own defeat.
This is almost certainly why it was allowed to occur — by the same higher forces that are now systematically preventing much greater atrocities from occurring.
The enormous scope of these interventions will become clear as you read Section II — and they have been ongoing since at least the dawning of the nuclear age.
Most importantly, Divine Intervention cannot occur until and unless there is a significant-enough movement from the mass public to support these actions. Those are the rules.
IT WILL BE A PROFOUND SHIFT — AND IT HAS ALREADY STARTED
That mass public will has finally arrived — and the positive militaries of the world will help ensure it will succeed.
If the rumors I am hearing are true, we will soon see mass arrests of many key conspirators in government, military, finance companies, defense contractors, media, pharmaceutical corporations and so on.
The evidence that will be presented will leave no conceivable room for doubt — except, perhaps, for those most addicted to "fear porn", who automatically assume whatever they see, hear and read must be the opposite of the truth — regardless of the evidence.
Benjamin Fulford, former Asia-Pacific bureau chief for Forbes Magazine, has been covering this evolving story on a week-by-week basis for well over three years now — and other sources have since come forward.
Fulford spoke for over a year about a lawsuit that would help break open this vast conspiracy — and end Financial Tyranny. An exact date for the filing of the complaint was given as it got closer.
A little over a week after the date — on November 23, 2011 — the complaint was filed, for everyone to read. The legal expenses involved in its preparation were vast. Fulford's credibility was significantly enhanced. He promised — and his sources delivered.
Little did I know that by publicly tearing it apart and looking for flaws and weaknesses, I would be contacted by the alliance that filed it — and would become one of its strongest public advocates.
DRAMATIC NEW DEVELOPMENTS
I can now say from firsthand knowledge that this 134-nation alliance is supporting an imminent, massive geopolitical shift — into freedom.
Our ancient brothers and sisters, seemingly lost to the pages of history, have provided critical support — now including direct, astonishing military interventions — to help make this unprecedented operation achievable… and ensure its success.
Therefore, it is now safe to say that everything is happening right on schedule.
This may sound crazy to you now. I get that. I would have felt the same way if I had not found so much evidence to the contrary — much of which I released in the epic Source Field Investigations book.
WE HAVE OVERLOOKED THE OBVIOUS SIGNPOSTS
Once we realize the human race is much, much more extensive than we thought, and that our relatives do indeed follow a Prime Directive, we will marvel at how many obvious signposts we have overlooked.
For over 1200 years now, our ancient human allies have been using a unique method to communicate with us — and all of these communications were focused on what is happening now.
During the last 30 years in particular, they have used this system extensively — revealing who they are, what they are doing, and why they are doing it.
All of this will be laid out for you in Section III.
For now, we will go into the "meat" of Section I — and discuss some of the obvious, public signposts of what is about to happen.
THE SIGNS ARE ALREADY THERE — 450 TOP CEOs FLEE THE SINKING SHIP
The vast majority of trouble in the world is being generated by a highly occult, highly secretive elite, hidden away in the G5 countries — and manipulating the financial system, politicians and militaries behind the scenes.
There are increasingly blatant signals that the mass arrests are about to happen. CEOs and top corporate executives are now resigning in massive numbers.
"American Kabuki" has diligently cataloged an incredible 450 confirmed resignations — just since September 1, 2011 — in chronological order, complete with supporting links in every case.
The number of resignations has significantly increased in the last 2-3 months, including an astonishing number of very high-profile people.
For example, there was a remarkable 48-percent increase in the number of CEO resignations just between the months of December and January — as you are about to see.
Skeptics — who may well be paid disinformants — have tried to write this off as all part of the normal turnover in the corporate world. However, a Fiscal Times article from February 23rd clearly revealed this is not "normal" at all.
THE FORCED REBUTTAL
The mass resignations have not gone unnoticed to the readers of The Fiscal Times. This is a very real story — causing very real anxiety.
Michelle Hirsch wrote "What CEO Musical Chairs Means to the Job Market" for The Fiscal Times on February 23, 2012 — to hopefully soothe their readers' fears.
What CEO Musical Chairs Means to the Job Market
After three years of relative stability in the corner offices of corporate America, 2012 is shaping up as a year of CEO musical chairs.
That’s because a wave of executives are looking to step down, cash in their stock options as stocks rise and avoid new government regulations that many see as too challenging and stressful….
In particular, the revolving door is spinning faster among health care and financial services executives, who are jumping ship, retiring, or being forced out at a quicker clip than their counterparts in other industries.
Last month, 25 health care CEOs and 13 financial services CEOs departed, making those sectors the two biggest culprits of the rising turnover tide.
A growing push from the federal government to police the financial services industry and clamp down on executive compensation is prompting the exodus of CEOs in the financial services industry, said Don Hambrick, a professor at Penn State’s Smeal School of Business….
The number of CEOs who left their posts in January spiked by 48 percent over December, rising to 123 – the highest level since May 2010, according to data from outplacement service firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.
Fifty-one percent resigned or stepped down, 26 percent retired, and only 9 percent left to take other jobs….
While changes at the top may unnerve some employees, rarely do CEO switches bring about mass terminations of existing employees, [Matt McGreal, a principal at Crist|Kolder Associates, a CEO search firm] said.
STUNNING CHANGES ARE UNDERWAY
The 450 resignations are documented, proven, and cannot be shot down.
This Fiscal Times article is our key to prove that this is real enough to be tracked by the media, and is in no way part of "normal turnover" in the corporate world.
We applaud Fiscal Times for their bravery in covering this evolving story.
Better yet, these mass resignations are only one part of a much larger mosaic of stunning new developments.
MASS ARRESTS HAVE ALREADY STARTED
Mass arrests have already taken place against senior staff of the Fox-owned Sun tabloid in England in three separate bursts — now encompassing 21 top Sun employees under "Operation Weeting".
In case you haven't followed this story, Fox (News Corporation) was working with the police and the government to tap people's phone calls and voicemails — and publish disparaging information on celebrities and public figures through these ill-gotten means.
When you include the two other known operations that have been reported — code-named Elveden and Tuleta — the total number of arrests has now encompassed a stunning 47 people.
The number of people arrested in Operation Weeting, which has been running since last January when police reopened investigations, stands at 21.
Two other linked investigations – Operation Elveden into corrupt payments to police and Operation Tuleta into computer hacking – have resulted in 26 [additional] arrests.
JAMES MURDOCH STEPS DOWN AS EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN OF [FOX] NEWS INTERNATIONAL
Rupert Murdoch's son, James Murdoch, resigned from his position as executive chairman of News International on February 29th — indicating the extreme scope of the trouble.
In time, this resignation will be seen as a monumental event — one of the greatest signposts of the mass arrests that were about to happen.
American readers may not be aware of the power and magnitude of what is already happening in the UK — but our next excerpt will spell it out very nicely.
THE "DAY OUT OF TIME"
It may also be significant that Murdoch announced his resignation on February 29, 2012.
As our graph shows, February 29, 2012 is the "Day Out of Time" immediately preceding the pivotal March 13th Mayan Calendar date — where the cycles shift into full synchronization.
This "Day Out of Time" has great significance in the Mayan system, as we will see in Section III.
Some scholars consider this "day out of time" to be "highly exceptional", in that it has "never happened before and will never happen again" in the Mayan system — and it directly sets up the final synchronization date of March 13th.
The above image was generated years before 2012 — in anticipation of the events that were predicted to come.
Little did we know that the "Day Out of Time" would become the very day that Fox News International effectively admitted, to the public, that the accusations against them were true.
The crimes they are accused of could, and will, ultimately engulf a vast majority of the mainstream media — in its totality. Not all journalists are culpable, but those who wanted to keep their jobs have been heavily manipulated.
JAMES MURDOCH STEPS DOWN AS CHAIRMAN OF NEWS INTERNATIONAL
Here is the article that announced James Murdoch's resignation — and revealed many things the American press has fastidiously avoided discussing.
James Murdoch Steps Down as Chairman of News International
James Murdoch is to step down as executive chairman of News International, it was announced today.
Parent company News Corporation said in a statement the move would allow him to focus on expanding the company's international TV businesses.
Mr Murdoch has faced intense scrutiny in the wake of the News of the World phone hacking scandal….
Labour MP Chris Bryant, who received a £30,000 settlement after having his phone hacked by the News of the World, said: "After all we've heard, James Murdoch's resignation is long overdue.
"On his watch, we have seen the biggest corporate corruption scandal since 1720 — and historic titles like The Sun have been brought into disrepute… He is not a fit and proper person."….
Ex-minister and former National Union of Journalists president Denis MacShane, who received a £32,500 settlement, said: "The Murdoch empire, as in Greek tragedy, is collapsing in full view of an astonished world.
"The crown prince has been sacrificed to appease the public horror at what is being revealed of the collusion, corruption and criminality of the Murdoch empire — as it bought politicians and police indiscriminately."
TWO SENIOR MURDOCH JOURNALISTS ATTEMPT SUICIDE
Sadly, in addition to the mass arrests of 47 people and the resignation of executive chairman James Murdoch, two senior journalists were so threatened by this imminent exposure of wrongdoing that they tried to kill themselves.
Two senior journalists working for Rupert Murdoch's News International have attempted suicide as pressure mounts at the scandal-hit publisher of the now-defunct News of the World, according to media reports.
The suicide attempts follow weeks of intense scrutiny of the role of The Sun, another Murdoch paper, in the phone-hacking scandal and police bribery case.
"It was not a suicide pact," the friend told the New Zealand-based news organization. "The attempts were not simultaneous and there is no suggestion of a pact."….
"People think that they've been thrown under a bus," one News International employee told Reuters. "They're beyond angry – there's an utter sense of betrayal, not just with the organization but with a general lynch-mob hysteria."
News International, the European arm of Murdoch's empire, is facing multiple criminal investigations and civil court cases as well as a public inquiry into press standards after long-simmering criticism of its practices came to a head last July.
Politicians once close to Murdoch, including Prime Minister David Cameron, turned their backs on him and demanded answers after the Guardian newspaper revealed the News of the World had hacked the phone of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler.
The London Evening Standard
reported that other News International journalists are “terribly stressed and many are on the edge.”
The company has reportedly offered psychiatric help
to any journalist who wants help.
I certainly would not want to take the invitation to "step into my office" from any News Corporation psychiatrist — given what we know about MK-Ultra techniques, which were revealed in open Congressional hearings from the 1970s.
Prime Minister David Cameron, the highest elected official in Great Britain, turned on Murdoch in the hopes of saving himself — as he has been directly linked to the corruption.
The blowback from this "Epic Greek Tragedy" — the "biggest corporate scandal since 1720" — will almost certainly return to the United States. Obviously these criminal practices within the Fox News empire were not limited to the United Kingdom.
It is very likely that other journalists, in other media conglomerates, are starting to feel the same sense of foreboding.
How much have you been hearing about this "epic" story in the Federal Reserve-controlled American corporate media?
KERRY CASSIDY REVEALS EVEN MORE IN HER BLOG
Insider sources revealed a "plot twist" in this story to Kerry Cassidy of Project Camelot — whom I've collaborated with for years now in our search for truth and freedom.
This critical detail has not emerged… yet… but the trials have barely even started. If the full-blown mass arrests do happen, the disclosure of what you are about to read will pale in comparison to everything else that comes out.
March 8, 2012 Update 12:35PM
CLANDESTINE SHADOW PHONE NETWORK also referred to as an INTERNATIONAL INTRANET
ACCORDING TO A SOURCE: There is a deep shadow network behind the traditional telephone network that you only get access to by invitation.
It involves people who are on the criminal side — as well as, no doubt, government and alphabet agency types who tap into phone calls, and then sell them on a black market for lots of money.
[They are sold] to, for example, HIGH FREQUENCY TRADERS (HFTs) — who then use this info to make trades, currency calls, etc.
You can see where a network like this can be very advantageous to the participants.
FURTHER: This also relates back to the recent MURDOCH TELEPHONE TAPPING SCANDAL … because what apparently did not come out during that inquiry and trial is that Murdoch's boys did not have to tap anyone's phone directly.
Instead, they simply connected with an individual who then gave them access to this hidden phone network.
They told them what calls, from which people, they wanted to PURCHASE… and paid them for the 'tapped calls'.
RUSH LIMBAUGH AND THE FALL OF SHOCK-JOCK HATE RADIO
There is no question that News International owns and runs the right-wing hate speech industry in the US. They are now engulfed in a massive scandal on this front as well.
Advertisers have abandoned Rush Limbaugh's program in droves — 98 different corporations within days of when the problem started.
This was triggered by the public uproar that occurred when Limbaugh labeled Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke as a "slut" and a "prostitute" — for lobbying to provide better public access to birth control.
THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS MADE
Here's a story that was published when the first 98 were announced.
Premiere Networks is circulating a list of 98 advertisers who want to avoid “environments likely to stir negative sentiments.”
The list includes carmakers (Ford, GM, Toyota), insurance companies (Allstate, Geico, Prudential, State Farm) and restaurants (McDonald’s, Subway). As you’ll see in the note below, those “environments” go beyond the Rush Limbaugh show.
“To all Traffic Managers: The information below applies to your Premiere Radio Networks commercial inventory….
"They’ve specifically asked that you schedule their commercials in dayparts or programs free of content that you know are deemed to be offensive or controversial (for example, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh, Tom Leykis, Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity)."
But it’s not just Limbaugh that these advertisers want to disassociate with, but other big names in right-wing radio too.
As the Daily Beast’s John Avalon notes, this is unprecedented in the 20-plus years that Limbaugh and his imitators have been on the air — and could spell real trouble for an industry that’s already suffering demographically….
The advertising flight is reminiscent of Glenn Beck’s Fox News program. After major companies refused to advertise
on Beck’s show in light of racially insensitive comments, he was left with just fringe businesses
like survival seed banks and gold sellers.
Not long thereafter, he left Fox, reportedly under pressure.
NOT ALL OF IT IS BAD
Clear Channel is the mega-conglomerate that owns Premiere Radio Networks, which carries Rush Limbaugh and almost all other right-wing hate-radio "shock jocks."
Though the names may change, it's the same corporate entity running the show here. Not all of it is bad, either.
Clear Channel and Premiere run Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, which I've appeared on more than 15 times — and is a marvelous program.
It is perfectly acceptable to see how a company can have positive and negative aspects mixed together.
MOST TELEVISION NETWORKS FEATURE A VARIETY OF POSITIVE THINGS AS WELL
Most network and cable television stations feature a variety of content that is positive, in varying ways, for humanity. The vast majority of people working within these groups are honest, hardworking and positive — and I know some of them.
I would strongly encourage everyone not to throw the baby out with the bath water. Once the conspirators have been arrested, these people will be able to step up much more — and make a difference that will benefit everyone.
Many of the broadcast and cable networks have already aired programs that have a positive impact on the world — and in some cases have assisted with Disclosure.
As one example, I have appeared in seven episodes of Ancient Aliens on History Channel — and am now developing my own show around the Source Field Investigations book.
This is not just a "what if", but is already significantly far down the road. I have not published the details of this just yet, for everyone's protection — but once we have a more stable footing, I will definitely do so.
By the time we are ready to air the show, it may well be a very different world.
I look forward to seeing these good people be allowed to do their jobs, without restrictions — and the incredible revolution of awareness this will then generate.
HATE DOESN'T SELL ANYMORE
Advertisers are now fleeing right-wing hate programming in droves. Without the oxygen of advertising money, these programs will quickly suffocate.
This programming is — and always has been — propaganda.
It is designed to support and enhance Financial Tyranny — by agitating the public and getting them to turn on each other, thereby steering them away from the "men behind the curtain."
The impact from Rush Limbaugh’s unrelenting assault is vast. In fact, the entire right-wing radio industry could potentially go down with him.
The money making industry thrived due to Rush Limbaugh’s highly controversial rhetoric – and now, they can thank him for its potential demise.
Three long decades of misogyny has poured out of his mouth endlessly into the airwaves….
Rush & Co. rate best among old, white males. They have been steadily losing women and young listeners, who are alienated by the angry, negative, obsessive approach to political conservations.
Add to that the fact that women ages 24–55 are the prize advertising demographic, and you have a perfect storm emerging after Limbaugh’s Sandra Fluke comments.
Advertisers are waking up. Extreme partisan views conveyed through the airways against their main targeted demographic, do not sell.
THE WEBSITE WAS SCRUBBED — BUT HE CANNOT ESCAPE ACCOUNTABILITY
Startlingly, the Fox / Clear Channel conglomerate attempted to hide the evidence and delete all the offending content from their websites featuring Rush Limbaugh — but it was far too little, too late.
It turns out brands aren't really very excited about being associated with bullies smearing private citizens. The list of brands insisting on this is pretty impressive. Ford, Toyota, GM, McDonalds and Subway, to name a few.
All of which leaves Rushbo and Company with a dilemma. After all, their bread and butter is controversy and hate.
If these major national advertisers don't want their ads associated with hate, the haters may become loss leaders for their local affiliates. Wouldn't that be too bad?
This is all the product of the outcry against Rushbo's three-day tirade against Sandra Fluke, which caused the netroots to rise up and reach out to the advertisers keeping him on the air.
Despite the fact that Rush has scrubbed his website
of the transcripts and offending content, he can't escape accountability for this.
LOS ANGELES PASSES LAWS AGAINST HATE RADIO
As the Rush Limbaugh scandal continues to explode in its scope and proportions, the Los Angeles city council has stepped in — and passed a resolution forcing media companies to avoid broadcasting racist and sexist slurs.
LA City Council Close to Passing Resolution Blocking Hate Radio
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — City Council members took a step closer on Wednesday to becoming the first in the nation to adopt a resolution condemning certain types of speech on public airwaves.
Councilmember Jan Perry introduced legislation that would call upon media companies to ensure “on-air hosts do not use and promote racist and sexist slurs” on radio and other broadcasts.
Members of Black Media Alliance, National Hispanic Media Coalition, Korean-American Bar Association and American Indians in Film and Television were on hand to voice their support for the proposal….
The proposal cites a “long history of racially offensive comments as well as deplorable sexist remarks, particularly towards women and Black, Latino, and Asian communities” at KFI 640 and calls for parent company Clear Channel Communications to hire a more diverse workforce to offset the trend.
“It is easy to become desensitized to what other groups find intolerable, which ultimately fosters an environment where negative comments can go unchecked — and corporate guidelines and policies are no longer being enforced,” the resolution reads.
Remarks from syndicated talk show host Rush Limbaugh referring to Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute”
for testifying on Capitol Hill about women’s access to contraception were also cited in the proposal.
The very next day, the law was passed, 13-2, in the Los Angeles City Council — as you can read here.
What you're seeing here is only a tiny taste of what is about to come. These are but the very first pebbles to have fallen from the coming avalanche. The roaring sound is becoming harder and harder to ignore.
The public hearings that will result from these mass arrests will break the whole story of Financial Tyranny wide open.
This will happen right on schedule — following prophecies that were given to us thousands of years ago.
"MUPPETGATE" IS ANOTHER PEBBLE FROM THE COMING AVALANCHE
Greg Smith, a former high-ranking Goldman Sachs employee blew the whistle in a New York Times editorial on March 14, 2012 — triggering a revolutionary public awakening now being called "Muppetgate."
So far, very few have "connected the dots" and realized that Goldman Sachs is one of the main Federal Reserve banking conglomerates — but I doubt this part of the story will remain secret for very long.
According to Smith, Goldman executives call their clients "Muppets" and treat them as pathetic sub-humans — purely to be exploited and stolen from. This has effectively revealed the sociopathic "Illuminati" mindset to the mass public.
Goldman Sachs has already gone into financial free-fall from this expose' — hemorrhaging more than two billion dollars in a matter of days.
Goldman Sachs Loses 2 Billion from “Muppetgate”
Question: What’s the cost to a company of one disgruntled former employee?
Answer: About $2 billion if it’s Goldman Sachs.
That’s how much of the bank’s market value was wiped out after one of its directors, Greg Smith, resigned from the company and penned an op-ed piece in The New York Times
attacking the firm’s culture and treatment of clients.
The bank’s shares fell 3.3 percent in trading Wednesday as London-based Smith’s article set Wall Street and the media ablaze with discussion about the behavior of big banks bailed out by taxpayers after the financial crisis.
The share price decline meant Goldman lost some $2 billion in market value. Its market capitalization is currently just short of $65 billion.
A "TOXIC ENVIRONMENT"
This next excerpt from MSNBC reveals even more about how terrible it is to work at Goldman Sachs — and the genuine darkness its employees find themselves in.
In a very public and scathing resignation letter, Goldman Sachs executive director Greg Smith has called the atmosphere at the massive investment bank "as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it."
"Today is my last day at Goldman Sachs," wrote Smith, who was the head of the firm's U.S. equity derivatives business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, in an Op-Ed in the New York Times
on Wednesday titled "Why I am Leaving Goldman Sachs."
Smith, who is based in London and has been with Goldman for 12 years, went on to describe what he says is a deteriorating culture at Goldman Sachs where clients are called "muppets" and their interests are given short shrift.
"The firm has veered so far from the place I joined right out of college that I can no longer in good conscience say that I identify with what it stands for," Smith wrote….
"It makes me ill how callously people talk about ripping their clients off. Over the last 12 months I have seen five different managing directors refer to their own clients as 'muppets,' sometimes over internal e-mail," wrote Smith….
In an emailed statement, Goldman Sachs, said, “We disagree with the views expressed, which we don’t think reflect the way we run our business. In our view, we will only be successful if our clients are successful. This fundamental truth lies at the heart of how we conduct ourselves.”
UK TELEGRAPH EXPLORES THE ILLUMINATI MINDSET
This next excerpt from the UK Telegraph discusses the Illuminati mindset within Goldman Sachs that has been revealed as a direct result of "Muppetgate" — the day after a Mayan Calender shift-date that had been anticipated for years.
This market autism has continued. If a trade makes a profit and it's within the rules, then do it. Ethics, perception, morals, emotional intelligence and even good old common sense are ignored….
[Goldman is] a bank whose alumni include two US Treasury Secretaries, including Paulson….
Goldman is a bank in denial and heading for a crash. I can’t see any President recruiting from Goldman again, given recent years. And unless things change, the bank will lose clients….
Outbursts such as Smith’s makes it easier for companies and investors to drop Goldman.
The bank needs to change, and has needed to do so for years. Some improvements have been made but they look superficial, and perception is nine tenths of reality here.
Remember — if Goldman Sachs crashes, so does the Federal Reserve.
1 IN 10 WALL STREET BANKERS ARE CLINICAL PSYCHOPATHS
On March 2, 2012 — just two days after the critical Feb. 29th "Day Out of Time" in the Mayan Calendar — the Huffington Post ran an article that seemed to anticipate the bomb Greg Smith was about to drop on Goldman Sachs.
This might sound like the punchline to a joke — but the destruction of the planet is no laughing matter, and these people must be stopped.
That makes psychopathy 10 times more prevalent among New York’s financial elite than among us plebeians, for which the accepted statistic is a more palatable one in 100.
Psychopaths “generally lack empathy and interest in what other people feel or think,” according to the study.
“At the same time, they display an abundance of charm, charisma, intelligence, credentials, an unparalleled capacity for… manipulation, and a drive for thrill seeking.”
That Wall Street should harbor more than its share of psychopaths, then, will come as no shock to those frustrated by the entitlement and greed of the one percent.
The study also shows how easily psychopaths can pass, however, blending into our lives as co-workers, friends and even romantic partners.
JP MORGAN STAFF WARNED OFF OF TALKING ABOUT "MUPPETGATE"
Goldman Sachs is one of the Federal Reserve banks. So is JP Morgan Chase.
The lower-level employees probably don't know this, but the higher-ups at JP Morgan are directly aware that an attack against Goldman is a direct attack against JP Morgan, the Federal Reserve, and the Illuminati.
So, the proverbial "STFU" warning came out from the higher-ups.
JP Morgan Staff Told to Go Easy on Goldman Sachs’ “Muppetgate”
(Reuters) – Investment bank JPMorgan tried to contain damage to Wall Street's reputation on Thursday by telling staff not to try to profit from rival Goldman Sachs' embarrassment over a vitriolic resignation letter published in the New York Times.
Equity derivatives salesman Greg Smith caused a firestorm across the banking industry on Wednesday with the letter, published as an opinion column and calling Goldman (GS.N
) a "toxic" place to work where senior staff saw clients as "muppets".
JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N
) Chief Executive Jamie Dimon warned employees in an internal memo not to seek advantage from Goldman's "alleged issues", imploring them focus on standards, not on the furore stirred by Smith in what media and bloggers have called "Muppetgate".
"I want to be clear that I don't want anyone here to seek advantage from a competitor's alleged issues or hearsay — ever. It's not the way we do business," Dimon said in the memo, a copy of which was seen by Reuters.
Dimon's memo, awaiting Asia employees in their e-mail inboxes on Thursday morning, was sent to the bank's global operating committee and later forwarded to wider parts of JPMorgan, said sources who have seen the memo.
JPMorgan declined to comment.
SUDDEN, STUNNING PUBLIC DIVORCE BETWEEN JP MORGAN AND THE VATICAN
Just five days after "Muppetgate," JP Morgan announced they were cutting off the Vatican Bank's private accounts, permanently — by the end of the month.
This is of monumental significance to our discussion. The Federal Reserve is literally dropping everything and running from any financial association with the Vatican — as fast as they can.
The divorce was announced on March 19th — and will already be finalized as of March 30th. If nothing is going to happen, why would we see such urgency?
Many "Truth" researchers have concluded that the Vatican has been penetrated at the highest levels by the Illuminati. This does not mean the Vatican itself is evil, nor are most of the people working there — but they have a very serious problem to deal with.
SCATTERING BEFORE THE AVALANCHE
All these Illuminati factions used to be on the same page — but now, just like with the mass CEO resignations, they are turning on each other and scattering before the avalanche hits. Let's read more about this epic event.
VATICAN CITY/MILAN, March 19 (Reuters) – JP Morgan Chase is closing the Vatican bank's account with an Italian branch of the U.S. banking giant because of concerns about a lack of transparency at the Holy See's financial institution,
Italian newspapers reported.
The move is a blow to the Vatican's drive to have its bank included in Europe's "white list" of states that comply with international standards against tax fraud and money-laundering.
The bank, formally known as the Institute for Works of Religion (IOR), enacted major reforms last year in an attempt to get Europe's seal of approval and put behind it scandals that have included accusations of money laundering and fraud.
Italy's leading financial daily Il Sole 24 Ore reported at the weekend that JP Morgan Chase in Milan had told the IOR of the closing of its account in a letter on Feb. 15.
The letter said the IOR's account in Italy's business capital would gradually be phased out starting on March 16 and closed on March 30.
In Milan, JP Morgan Chase declined to comment and the Vatican also had no comment. It was not possible to contact IOR officials because Monday was a holiday in the Vatican.
Il Sole said JP Morgan Chase informed the IOR that the account was being closed because the bank's Milan branch felt the IOR had failed to provide sufficient information on money transfers.
The financial newspaper, which gave the number of the IOR account, said some 1.5 billion euros passed through it in about 18 months.
It said the account was a "sweeping facility," meaning that it was emptied out at the end of each day with funds transferred to another IOR account in Germany.
A STRING OF SCANDALS PLAGUES THE VATICAN
Illuminati whistleblowers Svali
and Leo Zagami
have both said the Vatican is the "spiritual head" of the Illuminati. That's why this news is so significant within the insider world.
In her radio interview with Greg Szymanski,
Svali revealed that all members are forced to endure human sacrifice rituals that are conducted in the Vatican — in a secret subterranean chamber, accessed by a door hidden behind a giant painting.
Any significant exposure and downfall of the Vatican will, therefore, reveal an incredible amount of sinister, hidden truth.
No one knew what Svali looked like until Ed Koni recently posted the new svalispeaks.com
website — and included the above picture, without revealing what program it came from, or when it aired. No footage of the program is available on the site.
After I posted this, our intrepid commenters discovered this footage. It is from a BBC Conspiracies program in 2001, entitled "Satanic Panic." 2000 was the year Svali was the most active in writing articles. You can skip ahead to 6:24 to see Svali. Either link works:
Svali has definitely not sought the limelight — nor has she profited from her disclosures in any way. Instead, telling the truth got her tortured — and she may have been killed.
Even her close confidante Ed Koni does not now know if she is alive. If she still is alive, she has gone completely into hiding.
THE PUBLIC DIVORCE
Now that we have more background on this subject, let's continue reading about this staggering public divorce between the Federal Reserve and the Vatican.
The closure move by JP Morgan Chase, which was also reported by two leading general newspapers on Monday — Corriere della Sera and La Stampa — was a further blow to the [Vatican's] IOR [bank], whose image has been tarnished by a string of scandals.
In September, 2010, Italian investigators froze 23 million euros ($33 million) in funds in two Italian banks after opening an investigation into possible money-laundering.
The bank said it did nothing wrong and was just transferring funds between its own accounts. The money was released in June 2011 but Rome magistrates are continuing their probe.
The public image of the bank has also been harmed by the so-called "Vatileaks" scandal, in which highly sensitive documents, including letters to Pope Benedict, were published in Italian media….

Jan. 7, 2009: Vets Sue CIA Over Mind Control Tests
For two decades or more during the Cold War, the CIA and the military allegedly plied the unwitting with acid, weed, and dozens of
psychoactive drugs, in a series of zany (and sometimes dangerous) mind-control experiments.
Six veterans are suffering from all kinds of ailments tied to this "diabolical and secret testing program," according to a statement from the vets’ lawyers, passed on to SpyTalk’s
The suit was filed in federal court in northern California on behalf of the Washington-based Vietnam Veterans of America
, Inc., and six aging veterans with multiple diseases and ailments "tied to a diabolical and secret testing program, whereby U.S. military personnel were deliberately exposed, by government and military agencies, to chemical and biological weapons and other toxins without informed consent," the Morrison & Foerster
law firm said in a press release.
The firm said the alleged CIA research program was launched in the early 1950s and continued through at least 1976 at the Edgewood Arsenal and Fort Detrick, Md., as well as universities and hospitals across the country contracted by the CIA.
Defendants include the CIA, the Department of the Army, the Department of Defense and various government officials responsible for these agencies.
"The CIA secretly provided financing, personnel, and direction for the experiments, which were mainly conducted or contracted by the Army," the suit says.
According to the veterans, the experiments, conducted over a 25 year period, included:
· the use of troops to test nerve gas, psychochemicals, and thousands of other toxic chemical or biological substances, and … the insertion of septal implants in the brains of subjects in … mind control experiments that went awry, leaving many civilian and military subjects with permanent disabilities;….
: CIA spokeswoman Marie Harf said the agency would have no comment "on specific matters before the court."
But, she added, "CIA activities related to MK-ULTRA have been thoroughly investigated, and the CIA fully cooperated with each of the investigations. In addition, tens of thousands of pages from documents related to the program have been declassified and released to the public.
"MK-ULTRA was investigated in 1975 by the Rockefeller Commission and the Church Committee, and in 1977 by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research," Harf added.
have been written about the CIA drug experiments, which began with a Korean War-era mind-control race with Soviet and Chinese scientists. The idea was to create an American version of "The Manchurian Candidate," or drug-controlled assassin.
EXCERPTS FROM EARLY DRAFT OF "SOURCE FIELD INVESTIGATIONS"
After his university training, Cleve Backster eventually joined the US Counter-Intelligence Corps, and lectured on the potential danger of foreign powers using hypnosis to extract classified information from overseas government personnel.
Backster took a huge risk to demonstrate the seriousness of this subject to a high-ranking military officer.
With her permission, Backster hypnotized the secretary of the Commanding General of the Counter-Intelligence Corps. While under hypnosis, he asked her to remove a highly classified document from the general’s locked file cabinet – and she willingly obeyed.
Backster told her she would not remember what she had done when she awoke – and sure enough, she had no idea she had just leaked very sensitive information when he brought her back.
“That night I secured the document in my locked file and the next day presented it to the General.
I explained to him that I might be risking a court martial, but hoped instead to expedite further consideration of the importance of my research.
Rather than a court martial, on December 17, 1947, I received a very favorable letter of recommendation from the General, stating that my research was “of high importance to military intelligence.” Then positive things started to happen.”
EARLY PIONEER OF THE POLYGRAPH
After giving ten days of hypnosis and sodium pentothal ‘truth serum’ demonstrations at the Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, DC, Backster began working for the Central Intelligence Agency as of April 27, 1948. Shortly after joining the CIA, Backster studied with Leonarde Keeler – a pioneer in the use of the polygraph.
“In addition to other classified activities, I was a key member of a CIA team that was prepared to travel to any foreign location to analyze the possible use of unusual interrogation tactics, including my original areas of concern, mainly hypno-interrogation and narco-interrogation…
Back in Washington, D.C., the polygraph operation I had established was becoming popular for the screening of applicants for employment at the CIA and for some general screening of key CIA personnel. The ever-increasing schedule of rather routine polygraph examinations started to interfere with my more creative interests in research.”
Shortly after Leonarde Keeler’s death, circa 1951, Backster left the CIA – to serve as director of the Keeler Polygraph Institute in Chicago. This was the only classroom-type school teaching the use of the polygraph at the time….
Backster’s experiments with human cells made his discovery far more personal. In these experiments, Backster would obtain living cells from your mouth by having you swish a little water around and spit it into a test tube.
This tube was then whirled in a centrifuge, bringing the living white blood cells to the top, which Backster extracted with an eyedropper.
The cells were then placed into a tiny one-milliliter test tube and electroded with very thin gold wires.
These living samples could survive this way for “ten to twelve hours”, giving high-quality reactions the entire time.
My favorite example of Backster’s work with human cells was performed with NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary in 1988, who served on the faculties of Cornell University, California Institute of Technology, University of California and Princeton University.
O’Leary brought an ex-lady-friend along to the lab and apparently they had a strong argument – which “provided ample opportunity for him to witness first hand extremely high quality chart reactions.”
O’Leary then left for the San Diego airport so he could fly back to Phoenix, Arizona – some 300 miles away. He synchronized watches with Backster, and his cells were monitored in the lab the entire time.
“It was previously agreed that [Dr. O’Leary] would keep an accurate log of events which might have caused him momentary anxiety.
These included missing a turn on the freeway while returning his rental car to the airport, nearly missing his flight because of the long line at the ticket counter, his flight’s departure and landing in Phoenix, his son’s failure to meet him on time at the airport, and a number of other logged events.
Later when comparisons were made by transferring the logged events to the appropriate portions of the chart recording, there was a good correlation between chart reactions and nearly all of the perceived anxieties.
His chart became very quiet after he returned home and retired for the evening.”
I discussed this experiment with Dr. O’Leary over a private dinner in Zurich, Switzerland while we were both speaking at a Project Camelot conference – and he confirmed to me how amazed he was by it.
His own mind was literally broadcasting waves of information that were being picked up by his living cells in a lab three hundred miles away!
The effect works just as well if the cells are kept in shielded rooms, again proving the signals are not being transmitted by electromagnetic energy.
There is something ‘out there’, some energy field, that allows our thoughts to propagate through space – even over vast distances.
The implications of this are stunning – particularly when you start to consider how it seems that every living thing in nature is listening to everything else. We are definitely not excluded from this process.
FREE ENERGY – AND THE CONSEQUENCES
At this same Zurich conference, Dr. Brian O’Leary revealed a wealth of information suggesting ‘free energy’ devices have been invented, again and again, but are invariably suppressed by corporate power brokers.
According to the Institute for New Energy, as of 1997, “the US Patent Office has classified over 3,000 patent devices or applications under the secrecy order, Title 35, U.S. Code (1952) Sections 181-188.”
[Bailey, Patrick G. and Grotz, Toby. A Critical Review of the Available Information Regarding Claims of Zero-Point Energy, Free-Energy, and Over-Unity Experiments and Devices.
Institute for New Energy, Proceedings of the 28th IECEC, April 3, 1997. URL: http://padrak.com/ine/INE21.html
(Accessed December 2010)]
Obviously, if something gets classified, it has potentials the government does not want us to have access to – which may or may not include clean, alternative energy.
According to Dr. O’Leary, some researchers are bought off and their discoveries put on a shelf. Others are threatened into submission, while others die under strange circumstances.
Dr. O’Leary then brought me up on stage for a panel discussion, and he mentioned how Dr. Stefan Marinov – “the head of the European free energy movement” – allegedly jumped to his death from the tenth story of the library building at the University of Graz in Austria.
Marinov flew out of the window backwards, as if he had been shoved. And according to Dr. O’Leary, “He left no suicide note, and he was one of the most positive, highly-spirited persons I’ve ever met.”
O’Leary also mentioned Dr. Eugene Mallove, arguably the world’s leading figure in alternative energy research, during this same time.
Overwhelmed with emotion, I actually burst into tears on stage in front of this 400-person audience while I discussed my own personal experience with Dr. Mallove….
Dr. Mallove started out as the head science writer for Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s own journal.
Mallove claimed he was ordered to suppress their research into ‘cold fusion’ – where they had gotten positive results suggesting ‘free energy’ was being generated from the reaction.
From there, he quit his job and went on to start Infinite Energy Magazine – and became arguably the top coordinator, publisher and liaison for alternative-energy inventors worldwide.
On May 15th, 2004, I was a featured guest on an episode of Coast to Coast, the largest nighttime talk-radio program in the US, with Art Bell and Richard Hoagland.
I found out a few days before airtime that Dr. Mallove was going to come on as our surprise special guest.
We were about to make a stunning announcement: Hoagland and Mallove were going to visit Washington, DC the following week, and bring along a working, table-top ‘free energy’ device.
This device apparently would begin spinning by simply being stared at, and did not use any conventional power source.
I wasn’t sure how it worked but it sounded fascinating – and I knew such things were theoretically possible from the Source Field investigations I had been doing already.
Hoagland had lined up meetings with various senators and congressmen to demonstrate the device – and push for these breakthroughs to be released to the public for study and commercial application.
Less than 24 hours before we were about to go live on the air, Dr. Mallove was bludgeoned to death by a man who had been renting his parents’ home.
The suspect, Gary McAvoy, “cried and curled up into the fetal position when he was first questioned about the murder of Eugene Mallove” and said he “couldn’t handle” the questions and wanted to commit suicide – according to Norwich, New Hampshire police.
This strange behavior is quite unusual for a gruff-looking grown man being questioned by a police officer – and suggested the possibility that classified hypnosis techniques may have been used to influence McAvoy to commit the murder.
In 1975, the Church Committee and the Rockefeller Commission ordered Congressional hearings on a classified CIA program involving the use of hypnosis, psychoactive drugs and trauma – including electrical shocks.
This program was dramatized in the 1962 thriller The Manchurian Candidate, with Frank Sinatra – and the film was remade with Denzel Washington in 2004.
Various insiders, some of whom I know personally, confirmed that the CIA’s goal was to create assassins, or ‘wet workers,’ who could go and do the job while under post-hypnotic suggestion – and then have no memory of what they had done, or why they had done it, afterwards.
This program was apparently classified under the code name MK-ULTRA.
CIA director Richard Helms had ordered all MK-ULTRA files destroyed in 1973, forcing the Congressional hearings to rely on the sworn testimony of direct participants and a small number of surviving documents.
On the Senate floor in 1977, Senator Ted Kennedy gave a brief overview of this program – without saying precisely what it was used for.
“The Deputy Director of the CIA revealed that over thirty universities and institutions were involved in an “extensive testing and experimentation” program which included covert drug tests on unwitting citizens “at all social levels, high and low, native Americans and foreign.””
Backster strongly hints he may have been involved in similar projects in his book.
He was home alone watching the Mel Gibson movie ‘Conspiracy Theory’, in which the main character is an MKULTRA victim – and Backster had wired up a live kombucha culture to his polygraph as he watched the film.
“Among other interesting reactions, at 4:06 pm, a large reaction can be observed, just as I heard certain references during a conversation between the characters portrayed by Julia Roberts and Patrick Stewart.
These references concerned alleged experiments by the CIA with hallucinogens and sensory deprivation. Noting my past employment with the CIA, I’ll leave it to the “conspiracy theory” experts to interpret the electroded Kombucha’s reaction.”
[Backster, Cleve. (2003) Op cit., pp. 99.]
Backster gives many other examples of these sorts of reactions occurring when a person is suddenly confronted with a highly traumatic and painful memory from their past.
This may also explain why he quit the CIA by 1951 – less than four years after he joined with such high accolades. If he didn’t even want to burn a plant, he certainly wouldn’t have felt good about the use of such cruel and inhumane techniques.
Certain groups do appear to have a serious, vested interest in suppressing the Source Field Investigations – which can even involve the use of deadly force if other forms of coercion do not succeed.
I am aware that any discussion of these issues invariably gets you labeled as a “paranoid nutcase”, but the events surrounding the loss of Dr. Mallove made it a lot more personal for me.
It may also be significant that Michael Talbot, author of The Holographic Universe,
died of chronic leukemia less than a year after his book was published at age 38.

Cyclops and the Professor visit Magneto
in his plastic prison to see if he had any part in the attack on the President.
Reading Magneto's mind, the Professor discovers that a covert government operative, William Stryker
, has been extracting information from Magneto….
arrives to pick them up, and they are quickly targeted by two Air Force
fighter jets. They manage to force the pilots to eject with the help of Storm and Jean Grey; however, they are hit by a missile which threatens to crash them.

Feb. 19: Icelandic Anger Brings Debt Forgiveness
Icelanders who pelted parliament with rocks in 2009 demanding their leaders and bankers answer for the country’s economic and financial collapse are reaping the benefits of their anger.
Since the end of 2008, the island’s banks have forgiven loans equivalent to 13 percent of gross domestic product, easing the debt burdens of more than a quarter of the population, according to a report published this month by the Icelandic Financial Services Association
“You could safely say that Iceland
holds the world record in household debt relief,” said Lars Christensen
, chief emerging markets economist at Danske Bank A/S in Copenhagen.
“Iceland followed the textbook example of what is required in a crisis. Any economist would agree with that.”….
Iceland’s special prosecutor has said it may indict as many as 90 people, while more than 200, including the former chief executives at the three biggest banks, face criminal charges.
Larus Welding, the former CEO of Glitnir Bank hf, once Iceland’s second biggest, was indicted in December for granting illegal loans and is now waiting to stand trial.
The former CEO of Landsbanki Islands hf, Sigurjon Arnason, has endured stints of solitary confinement as his criminal investigation continues.
That compares with the U.S., where no top bank executives have faced criminal prosecution for their roles in the subprime mortgage meltdown.
The Securities and Exchange Commission said last year it had sanctioned 39 senior officers for conduct related to the housing market meltdown.
Earlier today, we reported
that Germans are increasingly concerned that their gold, at over 3,400 tons – a majority of which is likely stored in the vault 80 feet below street level of 33 Liberty
(recently purchased by the Fed
with freshly printed money at far higher than prevailing commercial real estate rates for the Downtown NY area) – may be in jeopardy, and will likely soon formally inquire just how much of said gold is really held by the Fed.
As it turns out, Germany is not alone: as part of the "Rettet Unser Schweizer Gold", or the “Gold Initiative”: A Swiss Initiative to Secure the Swiss National Bank’s Gold Reserves initiative, launched recently by four members of the Swiss parliament, the Swiss people should have a right to vote on 3 simple things: i) keeping the Swiss gold physically in Switzerland; ii) forbidding the SNB from selling any more of its gold reserves, and iii) the SNB has to hold at least 20% of its assets in gold.
Needless the say the implications of this vote actually succeeding are comparable to the Greeks holding a referendum on whether or not to be in the Eurozone. Everyone saw how quickly G-Pap was "eliminated" within hours of making that particular threat.
Yet it begs the question: how many more international grassroots outcries for if not repatriation, then at least an audit of foreign gold held by the New York Fed have to take place, before Goldman's (and New York Fed's) Bill Dudley relents?
And why are the international central banks not disclosing what their people demand, if only to confirm that the gold is present and accounted for – even if it is at the Federal Reserve?

May 12: Fox Reporter Claims Journalists Made Up Stories
In the wake of the phone hacking scandal, News International
insisted illegal activities at the Sunday tabloid were only carried out by a few rogue reporters.
However, Johnson claims that many employees regularly obtained information for stories through the use of unethical practices and journalists would make up stories.
"Almost all stories that you worked on involved the use of private detectives and accessing various records, which were either illegal or confidential," said Johnson.
"So for instance, medical records, bank accounts, telephone records – this kind of data.
It was all a phone call away. Within a few days of working at the News of the World I was given several numbers for private detectives.
"I fabricated stories about drug dealers, neo-Nazis, people who were selling guns, people who were selling fake documents."

May 18: Paul Krugman Calls GOP Leaders “Manchurian Candidates”
Appearing on "Martin Bashir" Friday afternoon, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman said that Republican leaders' economic policy is so destructive that "sometimes you do wonder if these guys are moles –Manchurian Candidates – for I don’t know who." (Watch above.)
Krugman also called lawmakers who think austerity programs will jumpstart the economy "completely deluded."
Throughout his appearance, the Nobel Prize-winning economist proffered a philosophy familiar to readers of his column
: Governments should spend more, not less, during tough times.
He called the austerity programs that have been put into place in Europe and the U.S. a "massive unethical human experiment," and argued that "even if you don't care at all about the people…cutting spending right now now is a way to make the budget, too."
Responding to a clip of Congressman Paul Ryan comparing American economic malaise to that of Greece, Krugman outlined the many differences between the two countries, then attacked the Republican rising star.
"About Paul Ryan–you should really look at Paul Ryan's budget, and what's really in it, as opposed to the empty promises," Krugman said.
"His budget would actually increase the budget deficit. He wants to slash taxes on the rich, cut benefits for the poor, but it adds up to an increased budget deficit, not a reduced one."
Bashir then asked what Krugman thought of John Boehner's recent assertion
that he would once again force a showdown over the U.S. debt ceiling.
Krugman compared Boehner and his ilk to Manchurian Candidates, whose "real job is to bring down America."
Republicans have become so extreme, he said that their strategy at the negotiating table is simply to "threaten to destroy the economy unless they get what they want."
May 20: Dan Rather Blasts Corporate Media
Dan Rather slammed corporate media on Friday night, alleging that news coverage is guided by political interests and profits.
On Friday, Rather appeared on Bill Maher's show to discuss his new book "Rather Outspoken."
He spoke out about the controversy again, and stood by his story (his comments start at the 1:50 mark in the video above). He said that
he was fired because CBS News caved into the Bush administration's demands.
"The powers that be and the corporate structure were very uncomfortable with the story," Rather said. "They got pressured by the Bush administration and others in Washington, and it cost a lot of people their jobs, including myself."
He went on to warn that everyone should be "concerned" about "the constant consolidation of media," saying that "no more than six" companies currently control 80% of the distribution of news.
"These large corporations, they have things they need from the power structure in Washington, whether it's Republican or Democrat, and of course the people in Washington have things they want the news to be reported," he said.
"To put it bluntly, very big business is in bed with very big government in Washington, and has more to do with what the average person sees, hears, and reads than most people know."

May 29: JP Morgan Losses Could Bring Down Entire Financial System
The Doc spoke with financial/metals analyst Harvey Organ this weekend to discuss the escalation of the European debt crisis, JP Morgan’s derivatives crisis, and the gold and silver markets.
Harvey believes that the panicked reactions of multiple federal regulatory agencies indicates that JP Morgan’s losses are likely much more critical and severe than the mere $8 billion lost in the IG9 tranche, and states the data indicates JP Morgan is unwinding a portion of its $50 Trillion in interest rate swaps.
Harvey fears that the losses on JP Morgan’s interest rate swaps could already be $100 billion, and ‘COULD BRING DOWN THE WHOLE FINANCIAL SYSTEM OF THE WORLD!‘
Harvey states ‘If JP Morgan’s involved it really is The Fed itself, and if The Fed’s blowing up that will just about be THE explosion heard throughout the world.‘
When asked what type of risk JP Morgan’s derivatives crisis currently poses to the financial system Harvey responded:
We’ve been following this (JP Morgan’s derivatives) for quite awhile.
Rob Kirby in 2009 wrote a great paper The Elephant in the Room, where he describes the huge amount of interest rate swaps that JP Morgan has underwritten, and it’s probably in excess of $50 trillion- of the $70 trillion in derivatives that they hold.
These interest rate swaps are really a bet where they go long on long term rates (T-bonds), and short the short term treasury bills.
That forces the purchase of bonds, which in turn causes long term rates to fall.
That’s basically why long term rates are low for the United States, but Europe’s rates are higher: it’s because of the manipulation by JP Morgan.
What Jim Willie has shown
is that JP Morgan right now is unwinding some of these interest rate swaps.
If they’re unwinding these things, together with the huge losses from the IG9 (which were losses from the underwriting of the European credit default swaps), THIS COULD BRING DOWN THE WHOLE FINANCIAL SYSTEM OF THE WORLD!
If it’s $100 billion, then that blows up everybody. This is scary- and it probably will explain why JP Morgan was forced to come out on a Thursday night rather than let the world know on a Friday evening- the regulators certainly forced them to make their statement on Thursday.
It probably will explain why the FBI are involved. JP Morgan probably told them what is coming, so the FBI is now doing a criminal probe.
It will also explain why the CFTC has their enforcement arm coming in on the derivatives side. And the SEC also began a probe on these trades the moment it was announced.
So if you look at these trades and realize JP Morgan earned $20 billion, and all of a sudden announce a loss of $2 billion- that shouldn’t cause this much of a scare.
But probably these regulators know the truth, JP Morgan probably told them ‘we have a major problem here’ , and that’s why all these other regulatory bodies have started coming in.
If JP Morgan’s involved it really is The Fed itself, and if The Fed’s blowing up that will just about be THE explosion heard throughout the world.
This is huge, and it will probably really explain why these three regulatory bodies all of a sudden came in all at once.
JP Morgan’s been fooling around in all these derivatives for years and now they’re suddenly worried about the customers?
The probe didn’t start with MF Global, I didn’t see the FBI coming in when JP Morgan stole customer money there! But they came in now, and it’s immediate!
There’s some strong merit here that JP Morgan’s losses are huge – NOT from the losses they had in Europe with the IG9 tranche, and $8 billion is so huge! But I think that the scare is the huge losses that are unwinding on their interest rate swaps.
May 31: 2012 and 2013 – Global Economic Reset (Very Significant)
- We don’t know exactly what is to come, but we can all join the very few dots from where we are now, to the collapse of the first major bank…
- With very limited room for government bailouts, we can very easily join the next dots from the first bank closure to the collapse of the whole European banking system, and then to the bankruptcy of the governments themselves.
- There are almost no brakes in the system to stop this, and almost no one realises the seriousness of the situation.
- The problem is not Government debt per se. The real problem is that the $70 trillion in G10 debt is the collateral for $700 trillion in derivatives…
- Yes, that equates to 1200% of Global GDP and it rests on very, very weak foundations
- From an EU crisis, we only have to join one dot for a UK crisis of equal magnitude.
- And then do you think Japan and China would not be next?
- And then do you think the US would survive unscathed?
- That is the end of the fractional reserve banking system and of fiat money.
- Bonds will be stuck at 1% in the US, Germany, UK and Japan (for this phase).
- The whole bond market will be dead.
- Short selling on bonds – banned
- Short selling stocks – banned
- CDS – banned
- Short futures – banned
- Put options – banned
- All that is left is the Dollar and Gold
It only gets better. We use the term loosely:
- We have around 6 months left of trading in Western markets to protect ourselves or make enough money to offset future losses.
- Spend your time looking at the risks of custody, safekeeping, counterparty etc. Assume that no one and nothing is safe.
- After that…we put on our tin helmets and hide until the new system emerges….
From a timing perspective, I think 2012 and 2013 will usher in the end.

July 4: Omens in America: Washington DC Put On Notice
BRITISH PARLIAMENT CALLS FOR MASS ARRESTS
By July 4th, members of the British Parliament were openly calling for mass arrests of the top CEOs and bankers who manipulated the LIBOR rate for their own gains.
July 4: British Parliament Calls for Mass Arrests in LIBOR Scandal
The prime minister [David Cameron] said a single parliamentary inquiry into the "appalling" events would be the most "swift and decisive" course of action.
But Labour's leader [Ed Miliband] said this was "too narrow" and a much wider judicial probe into the culture of banking was needed….
At Prime Minister's Questions, Mr Cameron said the manipulation of the key Libor inter-bank borrowing rate by Barclays traders was "outrageous" and those responsible for "spivvy and probably illegal activity" should be held to account.
"People want to know that crime in our banks, crime in our financial services, will be pursued and punished like crimes on our streets," he told MPs….
But, in heated exchanges in the Commons, Mr Miliband said the prime minister did not understand the "depth of public concerns" about the matter and was failing to act in the national interest.
"Whenever these scandals happen, he has failed to act and he stands up for the wrong sort of people.
"His party is a party bankrolled by the banks. If he fails to order a judge-led inquiry people will come to one conclusion. He simply cannot act in the national interest."
July 4: Inconvenient Truths About LIBOR
We may well see more heads roll at major banks before the scandal surrounding Libor is over. But some senior members of the international financial community are increasingly wondering about the future of Libor itself.
As one senior international regulator put it to me: "The benchmark is broken. It needs to be fixed. Or perhaps it will just go the way of the dodo. The world has changed."
That's because the scandal has shed light on an inconvenient truth about these interbank rates which are used to determine the price of so many hundreds of trillions of dollars worth of global financial contracts.
That inconvenient truth is that even when London Interbank Offered Rates are not "fixed", they may still not bear very much relation to reality – because banks are not actually offering much unsecured money to each other at all.
This has been an open secret among bankers and regulators since the start of the credit crunch in 2007.
What any outsider would find surprising is that until now, neither the Financial Services Authority (FSA) nor the Bank of England have really made it their business either to replace Libor – or make it more accurately reflect reality.
Interestingly, this is what the US regulator, the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), has tried to do in its settlement with Barclays. If and when it ends its investigations of other banks, it will presumably try to do the same with them….
Many banks in the eurozone are almost entirely dependent on the European Central Bank (ECB) for day-to-day liquidity. And since the ECB started its long-term refinancing operation (LTRO) programme last November, they have been getting quite a lot of longer term funding from that source as well.
And yet, throughout this period, the Euribor – the Euro Interbank Offered Rate, also caught up in the Barclays manipulation scandal – has been faithfully reported, day in day out, by more than 50 European banks. You have to wonder what those rates actually mean….
And yet, despite their inherent fuzziness and lack of "significant operational content", despite the lack of formal checks on banks' internal procedures for coming up with these rates, Euribor and Libor are the benchmark for pricing transactions worth trillions of dollars.
US dollar Libor, for example, is the basis for the settlement of the three-month Eurodollar futures contract, which had a traded volume in 2011 with a notional value of $564 trillion, according to the CFTC.
Many of you will find all of that pretty odd – and pretty shocking. I know most economists would.
We are all understandably interested in what Bank of England deputy governor Paul Tucker and other senior officials may or may not have said about the Libor to Bob Diamond or other bankers, at the height of the credit crunch in 2008.
But, perhaps we should also be asking why those senior officials and regulators continued to allow Libor to play such an iconic role in global financial contracts – when even the governor of the Bank of England knew quite well that they did not paint a remotely accurate picture of reality. Even when everyone was playing by the rules.
July 4: Other Media Besides FOX Also Arrested for Bribing Public Officials
The Scotland Yard inquiry into alleged corrupt payments by newspapers to public officials has gone beyond News International after a journalist who has worked for another publishing group was arrested.
It is reported that the journalist arrested was a former Mirror reporter, aged 37.
Scotland Yard said three people had been arrested on Wednesday morning. "The Metropolitan police
has always made it clear it will go where the evidence leads them," it said when asked if their inquiry had now taken it to Trinity Mirror.
Until now all journalists who have been detained by police investigating allegations of corrupt payments made by newspapers to public officials have worked for News International titles.
A spokeswoman for News International confirmed the journalist does not work for any of its titles. A Mirror spokesman said: "We cannot confirm anything because we do not know."
The arrests, between 6am and 8am, bring the number detained and questioned by Scotland Yard on Operation Elveden
inquiries to 37.
One of the three, a 46-year-old man, is a prison officer and was arrested at his home address in south-east London
on suspicion of corruption, on suspicion of conspiracy to commit bribery and on suspicion to cause misconduct in a public office.
A second man, 37, was arrested at his home address in Morden, Surrey, on suspicion of corruption, on suspicion of conspiracy to commit bribery and on suspicion to cause misconduct in a public office.
Police also arrested a 50-year-old woman at a non-residential location in Kent in connection with the same three allegations. All three are in custody at separate London police stations.
Scotland Yard said in a statement: "Today's arrests relate to suspected payments to a public official and are not about seeking journalists to reveal confidential sources in relation to information that has been obtained legitimately."
July 4: Pedophiles Identified 'In 141 Countries' – Arrests Pending
Hundreds of pedophiles prowling on the internet have been identified in an operation in 141 countries, Austrian federal police say.
The operation called "Carole" which began almost a year ago found in Austria alone 272 suspects who had broadcast pedophile videos on the internet.
The sweep is the largest police operation ever carried out against online pedophiles in Austria, and was likely one of the largest world-wide.
Large quantities of video footage and other information seized are currently being examined by police in 141 countries.
In March 2011, an Europol sweep identified 670 suspects and made 184 arrests in what was then the biggest case of its kind.
The US Federal Deposit Insurance and Federal Reserve released public summaries of plans for quick liquidation of nine of the world’s largest banks in the case of an emergency, without government bailouts.
Complex financial firms with more than $250 billion in nonbank assets including J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Morgan Stanley, Barclays PLC, Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse and UBS were the first to prepare the worst case scenarios by July 1. In total, about 125 banks are expected to submit plans to the regulators by the end of 2013.
Public summaries reveal that Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs plan to sell assets or stand-alone businesses to other financial firms, private-equity investors or insurance companies in the event of a collapse.
Citigroup said its banking business could be split off from the parent company and recapitalized as a smaller bank. Credit Suisse plans to sell its businesses to hedge funds, banks and securities firms.
Meanwhile Barclay’s paper is already out of date after the resignation Tuesday of CEO Bob Diamond and COO Jerry Del Missier.
Banks are required to give the government the tools to wind them down in a case of failure under provisions of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law designed to end the practice of bailing out “too big to fail” banks by the state.
The act aims to secure the financial system from turmoil such as followed the collapse of Lehman Brothers or Bear Stearns in 2008.
July 4: Jim Sinclair – Gold May Skyrocket in Price — “Most Important Message Since 2001”
My Dear Friends,
Gold will go to and above $3500. This is the most important message I have sent you since 2001.
There are very few of us dynamic thinkers that see everything as a trend constantly in motion. Anyone can be a static thinker, quoting recent economic figures or news headline (MSM), and coming up with a usually wrong opinion.
The change today is that the "Rig Is Up."
The Bank of England turning their backs on Barclays, the company who did their bidding, will be the event in time marking the trend change.
Many of us in our areas of activity will successfully fight the Riggers. The many complaints that so many of you kindly sent in to fight manipulation released the Kraken in me.
The Kraken is back in its cage where it belongs. The paper trail is there. The worm has turned.
Even more importantly is that this fight in the $1540 gold price area was not for regaining the old high in gold.
The six attempts to kill gold, supported by some gold writers looking for favors from the riggers was a now failed attempt to keep gold from trading above $3500.
The battle to stop gold has been lost.
The start, like all starts towards the old high and well above, should be slow with more unfolding drama. It will build on itself but gold will trade at and above $3500.
I am now as certain of this as I was over ten years ago when I told you gold was headed for $1650. I knew that as fact and to me from $248 gold was trading at $1650.
My job now is to define gold’s full valuation for you when it occurs. The timing is no less than one year from now to a maximum of three years from now. I believe I will be able to do that for you.
This is the most important message I have written you since early in 2001. I write this with total intellectual and spiritual certainty.
July 4: “Stressed” BoE Official Found Stabbed To Death
The body of Christopher Dymond, 52, was discovered in a secluded car park in Herongate, Essex, after his family had reported him missing.
A post-mortem revealed Mr Dymond died from self-inflicted stab wounds to his chest and cuts to his arms.
His grieving father, Denis Dymond, told an inquest: "Our over-arching point of view is that Chris's death came about because of intense anxiety which was work-related.
"He was let down in the duty of care by his employers."
The father-of-three had been reported missing by his concerned family at around 10.30pm on April 21 this year after they were unable to contact him….
Coroner Mrs Caroline Beasley-Murray said there were no suspicious circumstances and recorded a verdict of suicide at an inquest held in Chelmsford, Essex.
She said: "It is patently clear from what Mr Dymond expressed in the note that he was suffering extreme anxiety about work-related matters."
Mr Dymond is believed to have been heavily involved in the transfer of responsibility and power for bank regulation from the Financial Services Authority to the Bank of England in the weeks leading up to his death in his role managing IT services.
July 7: LIBOR — The Wall Street Scandal of All Scandals
Just when you thought Wall Street couldn't sink any lower — when its myriad abuses of public trust have already spread a miasma of cynicism over the entire economic system, giving birth to Tea Partiers and Occupiers and all manner of conspiracy theories;
When its excesses have already wrought havoc with the lives of millions of Americans, causing taxpayers to shell out billions (of which only a portion has been repaid) even as its top executives are back to making more money than ever;
When its vast political power (via campaign contributions) has already eviscerated much of the Dodd-Frank law that was supposed to rein it in, including the so-called "Volcker" Rule that was sold as a milder version of the old Glass-Steagall Act that used to separate investment from commercial banking —
Yes, just when you thought the Street had hit bottom, an even deeper level of public-be-damned greed and corruption is revealed.
Sit down and hold on to your chair….
Suppose the bankers are manipulating the interest rate so they can place bets with the money you lend or repay them — bets that will pay off big for them because they have inside information on what the market is really predicting, which they're not sharing with you.
That would be a mammoth violation of public trust.
And it would amount to a rip-off of almost cosmic proportion — trillions of dollars that you and I and other average people would otherwise have received or saved on our lending and borrowing that have been going instead to the bankers.
It would make the other abuses of trust we've witnessed look like child's play by comparison.
Sad to say, there's reason to believe this has been going on, or something very much like it. This is what the emerging scandal over "Libor" (short for "London interbank offered rate") is all about.
Libor is the benchmark for trillions of dollars of loans worldwide — mortgage loans, small business loans, personal loans. It's compiled by averaging the rates at which the major banks say they borrow.
So far, the scandal has been limited to Barclay's, a big London-based bank that just paid $453 million to U.S. and British bank regulators, whose top executives have been forced to resign, and whose traders' emails give a chilling picture of how easily they got their colleagues to rig interest rates in order to make big bucks.
(Robert Diamond, Jr., the former Barclay CEO who was forced to resign, said the emails made him "physically ill" — perhaps because they so patently reveal the corruption.)
But Wall Street has almost surely been involved in the same practice, including the usual suspects — JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, and Bank of America — because every major bank participates in setting the Libor rate, and Barclay's couldn't have rigged it without their witting involvement.
In fact, Barclay's defense has been that every major bank was fixing Libor in the same way, and for the same reason.
And Barclays is "cooperating" (i.e., giving damning evidence about other big banks) with the Justice Department and other regulators in order to avoid steeper penalties or criminal prosecutions, so the fireworks have just begun.
There are really two different Libor scandals. One has to do with a period just before the financial crisis, around 2007, when Barclays and other banks submitted fake Libor rates lower than the banks' actual borrowing costs in order to disguise how much trouble they were in.
This was bad enough. Had the world known then, action might have been taken earlier to diminish the impact of the near financial meltdown of 2008.
But the other scandal is even worse. It involves a more general practice, starting around 2005 and continuing until — who knows? it might still be going on — to rig the Libor in whatever way necessary to assure the banks' bets on derivatives would be profitable.
This is insider trading on a gigantic scale. It makes the bankers winners and the rest of us — whose money they've used for to make their bets — losers and chumps.
What to do about it, other than hope the Justice Department and other regulators impose stiff fines and even criminal penalties, and hold executives responsible?
When it comes to Wall Street and the financial sector in general, most of us suffer outrage fatigue combined with an overwhelming cynicism that nothing will ever be done to stop these abuses because the Street is too powerful.
But that fatigue and cynicism are self-fulfilling; nothing will be done if we succumb to them.
The alternative is to be unflagging and unflinching in our demand that Glass-Steagall be reinstituted and the biggest banks be broken up.
The question is whether the unfolding Libor scandal will provide enough ammunition and energy to finally get the job done.
July 8: LIBOR — The Mega-Scandal of All Mega-Scandals
The London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, scandal is growing by the minute and is shaping up to be one of the largest, if not the single largest, financial scandals of all time.
July 8: Libor Rigging Went On Until 2010, Claims Canadian Watchdog
An investigation in Canada
alleges that interest-rate rigging by staff working for British banks and financial institutions continued until at least June 2010, more than a year after Barclays
' derivatives traders were found to have colluded in such practices.
July 8: LIBOR’s Dirty Laundry
HERE in the early stages of the Libor scandal — and yes, this thing is far from over — there are two big surprises.
The first is that the bankers, traders, executives and others would so openly and, in some cases, gleefully collude to manipulate this key interest rate for their own benefit.
With all the seedy bank behaviour that has been exposed since the financial crisis, it's stunning that there's still dirty laundry left to be aired.
We've had predatory subprime lending, fraudulent ratings, excessive risk-taking and even clients being taken advantage of in order to unload toxic mortgages.
Yet, even with these precedents, the Libor scandal still manages to shock.
Libor — the London Interbank Offered Rate — represents a series of interest rates at which banks make unsecured loans to each other. More important, it is a benchmark that many financial instruments are pegged to.
The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), which doggedly pursued the wrongdoing and brought the scandal to light, estimates that some US$350 trillion worth of derivatives and US$10 trillion worth of loans are based on Libor.
With so much depending on this one critical interest rate, there shouldn't ever be a question about its reliability….
Submitting false data, for whatever reason, is a violation of the law — not to mention a fundamental abuse of trust.
Which brings me to the second big surprise. Britain and America have reacted to the Libor scandal in completely different ways.
Britain is in an utter frenzy over it, with wall-to-wall coverage, and the most respectable, pro-business publications expressing outrage.
The Economist ran a headline that read, in its entirety, "Banksters".
Yet, on these shores, the reaction has been mainly a shrug. Perhaps we're suffering from bank-scandal fatigue, having lived through Bank of America's various travails, the Goldman Sachs revelations, and most recently, the big JP Morgan Chase trading loss.
But the British have this one right. They may not understand the intricacies of Libor any better than we do, but they sense, powerfully, that banks have once again made a mockery of the role that society entrusts to them.
Barclays, of course, is hardly the only big bank that manipulated Libor for fun and profit. It is simply the first to admit its wrongdoing and settle with the government.
The word is that just about every big bank in the US is under investigation for playing games with Libor.
Which means there is going to be more opportunities for Americans to become outraged, and maybe, the will to change banking once and for all.
July 9: Barclays LIBOR Scandal Rattles Global Finance
London – The Barclays rate-rigging scandal is sending shockwaves through world finance, putting ethics and regulation under scrutiny, and raising the prospect of criminal charges in a sector-wide global probe.
Britain's Serious Fraud Office said on Friday it will investigate the interbank rate manipulation scandal which has engulfed Barclays, forced three top resignations, tainted the City of London and sparked a political firestorm….
Dan Wilsher, senior law lecturer at the City Law School, City University London, told AFP that the scandal raised serious questions over the conduct of some financial sector workers.
"The Libor scandal reveals a lack of honesty amongst dozens of employees – not just at Barclays – when the financial rewards are so big for cheating the system, the chances of getting caught slim and the pressure from management is very great," Wilsher said.
"The government will try to make it a crime to give wrong Libor figures but that will be a small step.
"We have not had a broad enquiry into the 'culture' of banking. At the moment the Leveson inquiry is looking at the ethics of the press following numerous scandals. People say we need the same for banking."
July 9: Euro Zone Fragmenting Faster Than EU Can Act
Signs are growing that Europe's economic and monetary union may be fragmenting faster than policymakers can repair it….
Any event that makes a euro exit by Greece — the most heavily indebted member state, which is off track on its second bailout program and in the fifth year of a recession — look more likely seems bound to accelerate those flows, despite repeated statements by EU leaders that Greece is a unique case.
"If it does occur, a crisis will propagate itself through the TARGET payments system of the European System of Central Banks," U.S. economist Peter Garber, now a global strategist with Deutsche Bank, wrote in a prophetic 1999 research paper.
Either member governments would always be willing to let their national central banks give unlimited credit to each other, in which case a collapse would be impossible, or they might be unwilling to provide boundless credit, "and this will set the parameters for the dynamics of collapse", Garber warned….
July 9: The 800 Trillion-Dollar Scandal — Gold and Silver Prices Manipulated As Well?
Banking scandals have grown so common that perhaps folks have simply run out of outrage. Or maybe the numbers are just too huge to wrap our mortal heads around.
Whatever it is that's behind the relatively light news coverage and lack of public debate on this incredible LIBOR rate-rigging scandal thus far, the story is not going away.
In fact, it's bound to grow substantially in scope,
as many of the world's largest banks have already been implicated in manipulating interest rates that are tied to some $800 trillion in loans and securities….
The U.S. Department of Justice
slapped U.K. banking giant Barclays (BCS
) with a $160 million penalty last week, declaring that
"Barclays Bank's illegal activity involved manipulating its submissions for benchmark interest rates in order to benefit its trading positions and the media's perception of the bank's financial health."
Combining the penalties assessed by a trio of U.S. and British regulators, and the roughly $155 million that Barclays spent during the multiyear investigation, this one bank alone has incurred more than $600 million in charges.
The bank's CEO, Bob Diamond, has resigned in disgrace, and the familiar Barclays name has been significantly tarnished.
Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) — the propped-up bank in which, in a royally cruel twist of fate, British taxpayers hold an 82% stake — will reportedly be next on the hook with penalties of $233 million for its role in the rate-setting scandal.
Swiss bank UBS (UBS
) received "conditional immunity" from prosecution last year in return for its cooperation with the Justice Department's ongoing investigation.
Meanwhile, authorities on both sides of the Atlantic are reportedly looking into potential misconduct by, among others: Citigroup (C), HSBC (HBC), Deutsche Bank (DB), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Lloyds, and Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi.
Now that we know who some of the players are, let's examine the stakes of their dangerous game.
Why LIBOR Matters to You
By messing with the LIBOR benchmark rates that are tied to an estimated $800 trillion of securities, the offending banks essentially played with matches in the middle of the world's largest house of leveraged cards.
The combined gross domestic product of all the nations of the world is only about $70 trillion, so the towering mountain of LIBOR-connected securities out there climbs into the realm of leveraged derivatives like those that nearly brought the global financial system to its knees
at the height of the 2008 credit crisis.
First by building that leveraged house of cards in the first place on a completely obscene scale, and then by shaking its very foundation by manipulating the interest rates on which all that paper is based, the rate-rigging banks took unthinkable risks with the fate of the entire global financial system….
A fascinating question comes to my mind as I consider the implications of LIBOR-gate:
If a dozen or more banks can collectively manipulate something as central to the everyday functioning of our economic system as LIBOR, and in the process play games with an $800 trillion mountain of leveraged securities, is there any corner of our financial markets that can be deemed safe from such reckless and deceptive behavior?
We know that a subsidiary of JPMorgan Chase is under investigation for alleged energy-market manipulation.
And a slew of banks have been implicated in a municipal bond-rigging scandal that, in the words of Rolling Stone reporter Matt Taibbi, reveals "the astonishing inner workings of the reigning American crime syndicate."
July 10: Geithner Had Multiple Meetings with Barclays as New York Fed Chief
As president of the New York Federal Reserve before and during the financial crisis, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner met repeatedly with Barclays officials, according to documents released by the bank and the New York Fed.
Though the subject of those discussions is unknown, they came at a time when Barclays was also talking to New York Fed officials about problems with an interest rate known as Libor, some five years before the bank agreed to pay $450 million
to settle charges that it manipulated that interest rate.
The meetings raise questions about just how much Geithner, now the U.S. Treasury secretary, knew about the alleged manipulation of Libor, a critical interest rate that affects borrowing costs throughout the economy — questions he'll have to answer at a Senate hearing later this month.
They could also renew criticisms of Geithner as being too chummy with the banking sector he was charged with regulating in his role at the Fed.
According to The Huffington Post's review of Geithner's calendar
during his time at the New York Fed, originally obtained by The New York Times
, Geithner repeatedly spoke from April 2007 to October 2008 with senior executives at Barclays, including at an Oct. 10, 2008, morning meeting with Bob Diamond, the former Barclays CEO, who stepped down last week amid the ballooning Libor controversy.
A timeline of events
released by Barclays ahead of Diamond’s testimony before British Parliament last week also indicates that an Oct. 10, 2008, meeting took place between bank officials and unnamed Fed representatives.
According to Barclays, the meeting that day was part of a series of discussions between the bank and the New York Fed during the financial crisis about the process of determining Libor.
Libor is set every day by a group of banks, including Barclays, JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup. It is based on the interest these banks say they have to pay to borrow money for short periods of time.
Regulators are investigating charges that several banks, in addition to Barclays, misreported their borrowing costs to manipulate Libor higher or lower, depending on their needs, possibly affecting the borrowing costs for millions of individuals and businesses.
During the crisis, the banks might have reported lower borrowing costs in order to avoid the appearance that they were suffering financial hardship.
July 9: Huge Mexico Protest, Censored by Western Media
Tens of thousands of protesters marched in Mexico City on Saturday to protest against Enrique Peña Nieto's apparent win in the country's presidential election, accusing his party of buying votes and paying TV networks for support.
Demonstrators were angered by allegations that Peña Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary party (PRI) gave out groceries, pre-paid gift cards and other goods to voters before the national elections on 1 July.
Students, unionists and leftists in Mexico City carried signs reading: "Peña, how much did it cost to become president?" and "Mexico, you pawned your future for 500 pesos."
Officials estimated about 50,000 demonstrators gathered at the central Zocalo plaza.
"The fraud was carried out before (the election), buying votes, tricking the people," said Gabriel Petatan Garcia, a geography student who carried a sign in Finnish. Protesters also carried signs in English, Japanese, French, German and other languages to call the attention of the international press.
July 10: Avaaz Petition – Put Bankers Behind Bars (577,602 Signatures As of July 16th)
July 10: Gold May Be Manipulated Like LIBOR
Gold may have been manipulated like the London interbank rate or Libor over a long time frame, Ned Naylor-Leyland, investment director at Cheviot, told CNBC.
surrounding the fixing of the Libor has opened markets up to “more scrutiny and more investigation,” Naylor-Leyland said.
He expects to see revelations over the next few months that the price of gold [XAU= 1571.39 -4.36 (-0.28%) ]
was also manipulated because "gold and silver reflect the true value of money the same way interest rates do."
"It is effectively an intervention in two ways; one would be the fact that for central banks, gold and silver going up doesn't make their currency look any good, and secondly a number of the big commercial banks have very large short positions which they like to manage and make easy money from," he said.
A formal investigation into the manipulation of silver has been going on for two years in the U.S.
“Although there is a lot of evidence that it is taking place, nothing has come out of the investigation yet,” Naylor-Leyland said.
Chris Powell, Secretary and Treasurer of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee told CNBC in June that “as central banks are interested in supporting government bonds and the dollar and keeping interest rates low, they continue to manipulate the gold market".
July 10: 25% of Wall Street Employees Admit That Fraud is Necessary For Success
(Reuters) – If the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes were to go out with his lantern in search of an honest man today, a survey of Wall Street executives on workplace conduct suggests he might have to look elsewhere.
A quarter of Wall Street executives see wrongdoing as a key to success, according to a survey by whistleblower law firm Labaton Sucharow released on Tuesday.
In a survey of 500 senior executives in the United States and the UK, 26 percent of respondents said they had observed or had firsthand knowledge of wrongdoing in the workplace, while 24 percent said they believed financial services professionals may need to engage in unethical or illegal conduct to be successful.
Sixteen percent of respondents said they would commit insider trading if they could get away with it, according to Labaton Sucharow. And 30 percent said their compensation plans created pressure to compromise ethical standards or violate the law.
"When misconduct is common and accepted by financial services professionals, the integrity of our entire financial system is at risk," Jordan Thomas, partner and chair of Labaton Sucharow's whistleblower representation practice, said in a statement.
The survey's release comes as the fallout from Barclays PLC's (BARC.L
) Libor-rigging scandal continues and other banks including Citigroup Inc (C.N
), HSBC Holdings PLC (HSBA.L
), Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC (RBS.L
) and UBS AG (UBSN.VX
) await the outcome of an industry-wide probe.
July 10: Wall Street Professionals Think Cheating Builds Success
Nearly one-fourth of financial
services professionals feel it’s at least sometimes necessary to do illegal or unethical things to be successful, and many are motivated to do so by fat bonuses and other compensation.
That’s according to a new survey
of 500 U.S. and British fund
managers, bankers, asset managers and other financial services professionals.
It was conducted in June on behalf of the law firm Labaton Sucharow, which specializes in whistleblower cases.
Twenty-four percent of respondents said if you work in financial services you must at times engage in unethical or illegal activity to be successful….
The survey… also comes just months after a Goldman Sachs employee named Greg Smith announced his departure from the firm via a New York Times op-ed
in which he derided the company as toxic and destructive, motivated by profit over the client’s best wishes.
July 10: LIBOR Manipulation Investigated by Serious Fraud Office (SFO)
On Monday the SFO released this statement, “The issues are complex and the assessment of the evidence the FSA has gathered will take a short time, but we hope to come to a conclusion within a month.”
July 11: LIBOR Scandal Could Turn “Ugly” as Cities Begin to Sue
The news on Wednesday that cities and states are suing some of the world's largest banks over Libor manipulation shows how this scandal could blow up into one of history's biggest bank frauds.
That's because interest-rate manipulation might well have kept your town or state from hiring firefighters or teachers, from paving roads or paying for indigent care or after-school programs for your kids — adding to the human suffering of the economic collapse these same banks caused in the first place.
If it's any consolation, the lawsuits and fines over this manipulation could potentially cost the banks — which include not only Barclays but Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup
, and many more — billions of dollars.
"This could get very ugly in a hurry for some banks," Peter Tchir of TF Market Advisors wrote in a note.
Would it be enough, maybe, to finally cause banks to lose the argument that regulating them too much will hurt the economy?
The New York Times
wrote Wednesday that several states, towns and other municipalities are rounding up posses of lawyers
to sue big banks over their manipulation of Libor, a short-term interest rate that affects borrowing costs throughout the global economy.
Barclays has admitted to manipulating the rate for years, paying $450 million
in penalties. Other banks are under investigation for doing the same thing.
The scandal has already engulfed Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner
and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke who have been asked to testify before a Senate subcommittee about rate manipulation….
But the sheer vastness of the derivatives market makes this a potentially huge headache for the banks. There's a general estimate floating around that Libor affects about $800 trillion in notional derivatives — that's "trillion," not "billion" or "million."
Banks are not going to be on the hook for anything near that much, as the bulk of this amount is "notional" — meaning, roughly, "not real."
What is far more likely is that people with derivatives contracts tied to Libor lost tiny percentages of that $800 trillion with some regularity because of Libor manipulation.
Some municipalities in the Times story estimate Libor manipulation cost them millions of dollars — $13 million in the case of Nassau County, New York, for example.
That's the same Nassau County whose crushing long-term unemployment is the subject of an HBO documentary, "Hard Times: Lost On Long Island."
That's "millions," not "trillions." Tater tots, if you're a bank. But priceless for a municipality struggling to hire workers, build infrastructure or take care of the people being crushed by the recession and painfully slow recovery.
And there are hundreds, maybe thousands, of municipalities involved in this. A 2010 Wall Street Journal
article about how states and cities were losing money on derivatives
noted that in Pennsylvania alone, 107 school districts owned interest-rate derivatives during the time period banks were allegedly manipulating rates.
That's 107 school districts in one state alone losing untold millions of dollars because of lower interest rates, which may have been lower than they should have been because of Libor manipulation. That's 107 school districts in one state alone that had a harder time paying teachers, buying computers, of funding art programs.
Peter Tchir of TF Market Advisors tried in a research note this morning
to arrive at what some of the big numbers might look like, if all of these potential litigants decided to up and hit the banks all at once.
If the banks were responsible for moving the three-month Libor rate by just 1/100th of a percentage point on that entire universe of $800 trillion in notional derivatives contracts, then that would be worth $20 billion, according to Tchir's calculations.
Banks are probably not going to be on the hook for derivatives worth anything close to that $800 trillion.
But if banks manipulated rates by more than that 1/100th of a point, or for more than 90 days — the term of three-month Libor — on even smaller notional derivative amounts, then the numbers can still get big in a hurry.
And that doesn't even include punitive damages. And it doesn't include the estimated $10 trillion in mortgages and other loans tied to Libor, including $275 billion worth of U.S. mortgages, according to an estimate from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency referenced in the FT
"That is the real exposure a bank caught 'lying' faces," Tchir writes. "If the lie was big enough and for a long enough period and anyone entitled to receive payment based on LIBOR can make the claim, the potential damage to the bank is enormous."
July 11: The Price of Gold is Manipulated – More Scandalous Than LIBOR
As with everything in economics, there is a correctional market mechanism for this scenario – the flight to commodities, particularly precious metals like gold.
Gold holds its value when paper money loses value, because it is beyond the gift of the government to simply will gold into being and give it to friends in high places or voters in low ones.
If gold has been manipulated downwards and if that process continues, then all recourse to a store of value (other than land and property) has been taken from the individual.
The value of our money is falling thanks to Quantitative Easing. Fixing in the gold market takes away one of the key hedges for those with cash assets but no property.
The true fall in the value of money is probably better seen through the rise in house prices since the 1980s – a much better reflection of the market mechanism thanks to the suppliers being so large and because of the lack of a two-way interplay between house prices on the street and derivative products for traders.
In any case, it would appear that the Libor scandal at Barclays has acted to draw out more market figures willing to claim openly that organised price fixing has occurred in gold.
Ned Naylor-Leyland, investment director at Cheviot, a British investment firm, had the following to say on CNBC the other day (H/Tt Chris Powell):
In the aftermath of the Libor scandal, the Bank of England complained that it had received no forewarning from the marketplace.
Gold price manipulation may well be the next big scandal to break – if it does, this time nobody can say that they were not warned.
July 12: Market Savior? Stocks Might Be 50% Lower Without Fed
A report from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York suggests that the bulk of equity returns for more than a decade are due to actions by the US central bank.
Theoretically, the S&P 500 [.SPX 1350.34 15.58 (+1.17%) ]
would be more than 50 percent lower—at the 600 level—if the bullish price action preceding Fed announcements was excluded, the study showed.
Posted on the New York Fed’s web site
Wednesday, the study sought out to explain why equities receive such a high premium over less risky assets such as bonds.
What they found was that the Federal Reserve
has had an outsized impact on equities relative to other asset classes.

July 12: LIBOR Banks Hoping to Get Off With 14 Billion-Dollar Fine
July 12: The Market Has Spoken, and It Is Rigged
Robert E. Diamond Jr., who resigned last week
as chief executive of Barclays, reportedly said, “On the majority of days, no requests were made at all” to cheat on Libor.
The Economist, which does not make a general habit of criticizing prominent people in the financial sector, observed
, “This was rather like an adulterer saying that he was faithful on most days.”
Mr. Diamond has fallen. Who is next? How will this play in American politics?
There is still time for politicians on the right and on the left of the political spectrum to get ahead of the issue. Digging in around specious arguments in favor of price-fixing cartels is not the way to go.
Power corrupts, and financial market power has completely corrupted financial markets.
Barclays and the other global megabanks involved in fixing Libor have brought their own industry very low – completely destroying the legitimacy on which sensible financial intermediation needs to be based.
Who trusts a banker at this point? The collateral damage is enormous. Who in their right mind would buy a complex derivative product from Barclays or anyone else implicated in this growing scandal?
July 12: Warren Buffett: LIBOR Scandal Involves the Whole World
Everyone should be paying attention to the Libor scandal, at least according to Warren Buffett.
Big banks have come under fire following allegations that many profited off the manipulation of Libor, a key interbank lending rate that acts as a benchmark for interest rates around the world.
The 16 banks under investigation
by governments in Europe, the U.S., and Japan for allegedly rigging Libor include Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, and Citigroup.
's Matt Taibbi recently said it was likely that most or all of these banks
were guilty of rigging Libor, since 16 banks help set the Libor rate every day. On CNBC, Buffett called Libor "the base rate for the whole world."
July 12: Iceland Hires Bounty Hunter to Get Bankers That Wrecked Its Economy
If you were involved in Icelandic high finance in the runup to the recession, you might want to start watching your back.
That's because the government has appointed a white collar crime bounty hunter who wants to haul your behind in (alive, to be sure)….
Hauksson oversees a posse of 100 researchers to help track down outlaws. He's netted some major convictions since starting in 2009, including the former chief of staff of the country's finance minister on insider trading charges. Many others await their day in court, Chabas writes.
And he will track you down even if you've fled abroad.
"Searches continue and the team pursues its investigations abroad in the foreign subsidiaries of the Icelandic banks and includes questioning foreigners," Chabas writes. " 'We enjoy full international cooperation,' stresses Olafur Hauksson."
July 12: NCAA Must Give Death Penalty to Penn State Football
If the worst is true, then Paterno and other officials at Penn State covered up Sandusky’s crimes because they wanted to protect the sanctity of the football program and make sure it continued unfettered, winning games and raking in cash….
The NCAA surely never has seen anything quite like this.
A sexual predator not only being protected from detection by one of its member institutions, but allowed to continue his abhorrent behavior?
It sounds like some storyline concocted for an episode of a network procedural. The fact that it was real is beyond chilling.
Again, the NCAA doesn’t yet know all the facts. But it can prepare in case all the facts add up to the worst possible outcome.
If it is determined that Penn State knew a lot more than it is letting on — including possible involvement by its late football coach in keeping silent about Sandusky’s actions — then the NCAA should prepare to hand down its death penalty to a Division I football program for only the second time in its history, after Southern Methodist University received it in 1987.
If Penn State is indeed found culpable, then this is one time the public should welcome the NCAA’s heavy hand.
July 13: JP Morgan Triples Original Loss Estimates to 5.8 Billion
NEW YORK — JPMorgan Chase said Friday that a bad trade had cost the bank $5.8 billion this year, almost triple its original estimate, and raised the prospect that traders had improperly tried to conceal the blunder.
"This has shaken our company to the core," CEO Jamie Dimon said.
The bank said managers tied to the bad trade had been dismissed without severance pay and that it planned to revoke two years' worth of pay from each of those executives.
July 13: Romney Is More of the Same — Will Benefit the Super-Rich
“Is there a V.I.P. entrance? We are V.I.P.”
That remark, by a donor waiting to get in to one of Mitt Romney’s recent fund-raisers in the Hamptons, pretty much sums up the attitude of America’s wealthy elite.
Mr. Romney’s base — never mind the top 1 percent, we’re talking about the top 0.01 percent or higher — is composed of very self-important people.
Specifically, these are people who believe that they are, as another Romney donor put it
, “the engine of the economy”; they should be cherished, and the taxes they pay, which are already at an 80-year low, should be cut even further.
Unfortunately, said yet another donor, the “common person” — for example, the “nails ladies” — just doesn’t get it.
O.K., it’s easy to mock these people, but the joke’s really on us.
For the “we are V.I.P.” crowd has fully captured the modern Republican Party, to such an extent that leading Republicans consider Mr. Romney’s apparent use of multimillion-dollar offshore accounts to dodge federal taxes not just acceptable but praiseworthy:
“It’s really American to avoid paying taxes, legally,” declared Senator Lindsey Graham
, Republican of South Carolina. And there is, of course, a good chance that Republicans will control both Congress and the White House next year.
If that happens, we’ll see a sharp turn toward economic policies based on the proposition that we need to be especially solicitous toward the superrich — I’m sorry, I mean the “job creators.” So it’s important to understand why that’s wrong….
…Quite a few of today’s superrich, Mr. Romney included, make or made their money in the financial sector, buying and selling assets rather than building businesses in the old-fashioned sense.
Indeed, the soaring share of the wealthy in national income went hand in hand with the explosive growth of Wall Street.
Not long ago, we were told that all this wheeling and dealing was good for everyone, that it was making the economy both more efficient and more stable.
Instead, it turned out that modern finance was laying the foundation for a severe economic crisis whose fallout continues to afflict millions of Americans, and that taxpayers had to bail out many of those supposedly brilliant bankers to prevent an even worse crisis.
So at least some members of the top 0.01 percent are best viewed as job destroyers rather than job creators.
Did I mention that those bailed-out bankers are now overwhelmingly backing Mr. Romney, who promises to reverse the mild financial reforms introduced after the crisis?
July 13: Federal Reserve Fully Aware of LIBOR Manipulation in 2007
The New York Federal Reserve on Friday released documents showing it knew banks were manipulating a key interest rate more than four years ago.
The documents, which date back to 2007, show that the Fed was fully aware that banks were lying about their borrowing costs when setting Libor, and chose to take no action against them.
The documents will likely feed growing concerns about whether the New York Fed, its former chief Timothy Geithner and other market watchdogs did everything they could to stop the manipulation.
The documents also raise more questions about whether the New York Fed and other regulators were too cozy with the banks involved, looking the other way in order to spare the banks too much pain at a time when the financial crisis was still brewing.
"We know that we’re not posting um, an honest LIBOR," a Barclays employee tells a New York Fed analyst in an April 11, 2008, call
, "and yet we are doing it, because, um, if we didn’t do it, It draws, um, unwanted attention on ourselves."
The New York Fed representative expresses sympathy and understanding:
"You have to accept it," she says. "I understand. Despite it’s against what you would like to do. I understand completely."
The widespread manipulation of Libor, an interest rate set by banks self-reporting what they pay to borrow money for short periods, may have cost borrowers (when rates were manipulated higher) and state and local governments
(when rates were manipulated lower) untold millions of dollars. And it could end up costing several banks billions of dollars
in penalties and lawsuits.
In the documents released
Friday — at the request of Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Tex.), Chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations — the New York Fed shows it was aware of problems with Libor as early as the fall of 2007….
But though the Fed said it continued to follow developments in Libor after mid-2008, it offers little documentation of that interest, beyond a handful of phone calls. There is no evidence that Geithner's recommendations were acted upon or that the Fed tried to make sure that they were.
"Our contacts at LIBOR contributing banks have indicated a tendency to under-report actual borrowing costs… in order to limit the potential for speculation about the institutions' liquidity problems," one New York Fed analyst wrote in April 2008.
July 13: Congressman Welch — “Aggressively Prosecute” Everyone Involved
Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder Thursday, recommending he seriously look into the high profile Libor scandal that's swept across the U.K. and the U.S.
News of the scandal entered national headlines when Barclays Bank recently admitted to rigging the Libor rate, which is the average interest rate at which banks lend to one another, between 2005 and 2009.
"We urge the Department of Justice to carefully investigate and aggressively prosecute all senior bank officials who participated in manipulating the London interbank offered rate [Libor] throughout the financial crisis," the letter says in its opening statement.
Barclay's, a multinational banking agency, agreed to pay $450 million in a settlement on June 27 amid allegations of Libor manipulation.
The Libor rate affects as much as $800 trillion
in affiliated interest rates on anything from mortgages and pensions to government bonds and financial securities.
"This goes to the heart of the integrity of the financial system. It contributes to immense financial pain that ripples through the economy," Welch told The Huffington Post.
"To the extent that people who overpay as a result of the Libor manipulation, they should be able to get their money back. Individuals who have mortgages, pension funds who had pensioner investments — whoever was ripped off is entitled to get their money back."
Sens. Jack Reed (D-R.I.) and Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), both of whom sit on the Senate Banking Committee, co-wrote a letter
to Holder on behalf of 12 Senate Democrats regarding the scandal.
The letter urges Holder and the Financial Stability Oversight Council, which was established in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform And Consumer Protection Act, to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter of banking malfeasance that they say has had a ripple effect on the economy and individuals across the U.S.
"We are troubled that several of the world’s largest financial institutions, including several based in the United States, may be involved in an effort to purposely misstate the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR), a key interest rate used in as much as $800 trillion worth of financial instruments," they say in the letter.
"Any illicit profits should be "clawed back" from the banks and from the individual participants. The folks who participated in this violation of the law should spend some time behind bars. Senator Brown is right to be aggressive in this investigation," Welch said.
"There has to be a cop on the beat," he added. "We have to send a message to these people who are entrusted with bank deposits that they can't use them for their personal gain."
July 13: Top Regulator Says We’re All Losers from LIBOR
You may not do any banking in London. You may not have ever been to London. But Gary Gensler is pretty sure the London interbank offering rate affects you — and not in a good way.
"I think we're all losers when a rate like this is susceptible to manipulation," Gensler, the chairman of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, told Time magazine's Rana Foroohar
Gensler was talking about the Libor rate-rigging scandal that's lately enveloped Barclays
and threatens to rattle the entire financial system.
Officials at Barclays have admitted
to falsely reporting company data in an attempt to game Libor, the interest rate that forms the basis for trillions of dollars' worth of financial instruments worldwide.
More than a dozen other major banks are under investigation now for similar allegations.
On Friday, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York disclosed documents showing that it knew as early as 2007
that Libor could be compromised.
Yet aside from then-president Timothy Geithner sending a memo
to the Bank of England in 2008, the New York Fed appears to have taken little action based on what it knew.
During an interview with Foroohar this week, Gensler called the rate-rigging scandal "historic" and explained that Libor underpins so many different financial transactions that the effects of tampering with it could be hard to fathom.
The rate is "embedded in so many of your mortgages, your credit card loans, and anything that you borrow against," Gensler said.
The effects could prove to be mixed, according to CNNMoney
, with some consumers possibly in a position to take advantage of lower interest payments, and others facing the unpleasant scenario of earning less in their pensions or mutual funds.

Politics is really far behind, at least in Europe, far behind the interests of the banks that are manipulating the entire decision making process and we are not getting any better with the measures that they are undertaking.
These measures I agree may risk to derail to severe unrest after the summer when people come back and we find extremely difficult to go through the next winter.
So, the situation is really pretty dangerous. I do not see the light at the end of the tunnel.
There is a need to address separate issues dividing the problems. So one thing is the debt of the state; one thing is the private debt of the banks; and then there are the industries. We have to separate the issues.
July 14: Justice Department Building Criminal Cases for LIBOR
WASHINGTON, July 14 (Reuters) – The U.S. Justice Department is building criminal cases against several financial institutions and their employees related to the manipulation of interest rates, The New York Times reported on Saturday.
Citing government officials close to the case who spoke on condition of anonymity, the Times said traders at Barclays Plc were among the individuals against whom Justice was building cases. Authorities expect to file charges against at least one bank later this year, the newspaper reported….
With the prospect of possible criminal charges, several financial institutions, including at least two European firms, are scrambling to arrange deals with the government, the Times reported, citing lawyers close to the case.
Given the broad scope of the Libor case and the number of institutions thought to be involved, the investigations could provide authorities with a "signature moment" to hold big banks accountable for misdeeds during the financial crisis, which hit global markets from late 2007, the newspaper said.
Still, the investigation is unusually complex, could continue for years and end in settlements rather than indictments, the Times said, citing officials close to the case.
July 14: Regulators Knew About LIBOR and Did Nothing
Regulators on both sides of the Atlantic failed to act on clear warnings that the Libor interest rate was being falsely reported by banks during the financial crisis, it emerged last night.
A cache of documents released yesterday by the New York Federal Reserve showed that US officials had evidence from April 2008 that Barclays was knowingly posting false reports about the rate at which it could borrow in order to assuage market concerns about its solvency.
July 15: Traders Got Banks to Manipulate LIBOR
Traders were found to have put pressure on the Libor "submitters" to change the Libor rate to help mask losses and help improve their own financial positions.
Barclays has been the focus so far, but it is known that banks across the City and Wall Street, from Lloyds Banking Group to JP Morgan, are likely to be pulled into the scandal.
The FSA report into the scandal found that traders at other banks also asked Barclays submitters to change their numbers.
It states: "At least 12 of the US dollar Libor requests made to Barclays submitters were made on behalf of external traders that had previously worked at Barclays and were now working at other banks."
In a separate passage, there were a further 11 requests from just one trader who used to work for Barclays.
John Thurso, the Lib Dem MP named last week as a member of the Parliamentary Commission on Banking Standards, said the revelations were "clearly a cause for concern and should be looked into".
July 15: NYT Admits Media Under Total Control
The quotations come back redacted, stripped of colorful metaphors, colloquial language and anything even mildly provocative….
From Capitol Hill to the Treasury Department, interviews granted only with quote approval have become the default position.
Those officials who dare to speak out of school, but fearful of making the slightest off-message remark, shroud even the most innocuous and anodyne quotations in anonymity by insisting they be referred to as a “top Democrat” or a “Republican strategist.”….
Those who did speak on the record said the restrictions seem only to be growing. “It’s not something I’m particularly proud of because there’s a part of me that says, ‘Don’t do it, don’t agree to their terms,’ ” said Major Garrett, a correspondent for The National Journal.
“There are times when this feels like I’m dealing with some of my editors. It’s like, ‘You just changed this because you could!’ ”
It was difficult to find a news outlet that had not agreed to quote approval, albeit reluctantly. Organizations like Bloomberg, The Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Reuters and The New York Times have all consented to interviews under such terms.
July 16: LIBOR — Latest Front in the War on Reality
The Libor scandal looks and smells like an old-fashioned financial fraud, but it also presents the latest example of a more modern phenomenon: the war against reality being waged with ferocity by special interests that profit from limited public awareness of what's actually taking place.
This campaign has proven remarkably effective — not in altering reality, but in muddying perceptions, corrupting our basic understanding of matters both critical and mundane, from the risks of financial crisis or of climate change to our expanding waistlines.
For those who have grown too inured to financial shenanigans to bother keeping up, Libor is an interest rate that captures the costs that banks in London charge one another for short-term loans.
Much of global finance is pegged to this rate, from ordinary mortgages to trillions of dollars' worth of credit derivatives, the exotic instruments that played a leading role in the financial crisis of 2008.
Libor plays such an outsized role in shaping the terms of global commerce that it is more than a benchmark. It is essentially a barometer for the health of the global financial system.
People who manage money — not just at investment banks, but at pension funds as well — use Libor as a gauge of confidence.
When Libor is seen to be low, this is taken as a sign that money is changing hands freely, without undue concern that borrowers will stumble or fail to pay back their loans.
When Libor is rising, this is an indication that concerns are mounting, generating reluctance to lend money. In short, it is a signal to proceed with caution.
July 16: LIBOR Manipulation — Anyone Can Do It!
Libor is like a honey trap for banks: The perfect lure for getting themselves into deep trouble.
The rate is determined by banks' self-reporting, and we're learning that banks have for years skewed it to make money in derivatives trades or to make them look healthier than they really are.
And anybody can do it!
"One former trader interviewed by Bloomberg News… said he and his colleagues tried to influence his bank’s rate- setters over a period of years because it was easy and even small movements helped their profit and loss accounts," Bloomberg's Liam Vaughan and Katie Linsell write.
There's no need for a vast banking conspiracy to drive Libor higher or lower — banks can do it on their own, for fun and profit. But mostly profit.
And you better believe they did, for years and years, a scandal that is only starting to unfold.
And, most insidious of all, the Libor scandal is turning into another massive blow to investor confidence
in financial markets — which, come to think of it, may ultimately turn out to be a good thing.
Because if there's one thing we've learned over the years, it's that these bankers will screw you every time they get the chance.
July 16: Geithner’s LIBOR Recommendations Came Straight From Banks
WASHINGTON — Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has so far escaped responsibility for the spreading Libor fixing scandal by releasing documents showing that when he became aware of the problem in 2008, as head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, he made recommendations to address it….
But the Fed, along with its statement, also released the staff work that led to the recommendations.
Those documents reveal that the recommendations Geithner sent to London did not come from staff, but rather were proposed by major banks and more or less forwarded on verbatim.
July 16: New York State to File Civil & Criminal Charges in LIBOR Scandal
New York’s Attorney General has opened an investigation in to the alleged rigging of the benchmark Libor rate.
Eric Schneiderman, along with his Connecticut counterpart George Jepsen, have been investigating the matter for six months, according to Mr Schneiderman’s spokesman.
Last month Barclays paid $450m to US and UK regulators to settle allegations it had manipulated Libor.
Some of the traders requesting the Libor manipulation were based in New York.
A number of large banks also have trading floors in Connecticut.
The New York Attorney General has powerful legal tools at his disposal.
His office is able to bring both civil and criminal charges, and can use a state fraud law that allows prosecuting authorities to establish financial fraud even if it wasn’t intended.
The news of this latest investigation follows a report that the Department of Justice is building criminal cases against several banks as well as individual employees, including traders at Barclays….
Later this week chairman of the Federal Reserve Ben Bernanke will appear before two powerful congressional committees – the Senate Banking Committee and the House Financial Services Committee.
He is expected to be grilled extensively on Libor and whether US regulators could have done more to protect the US financial system and American consumers.
US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is also expected to appear before the Senate Banking Committee in the coming weeks to face similar questions.
July 16: Wall Street May Face LIBOR Legal Threat From Small Banks
(Reuters) – The thousands of community banks have often said their much larger counterparts have trampled on them.
Now some hope the latest Wall Street scandal could give them ammunition to strike back. Big banks' alleged manipulation of interest rates has become the subject of a deepening global investigation by regulators.
It has also led one small bank in Wisconsin to file a lawsuit accusing JPMorgan Chase & Co, Bank of America Corp, Citigroup Inc and other major banks of colluding to set rates artificially low.
The Community Bank & Trustof Sheboygan — a town on the shores of Lake Michigan about 60 miles north of Milwaukee — is claiming manipulation of the benchmark London interbank offered rate, commonly known as Libor, has kept its interest margins artificially low.
Determined in London by the world's biggest banks, the Libor is used to set interest rates on everything from credit cards to student loans and mortgages.
Charles Tompkins of Boston law firm Shapiro Haber & Urmy filed the lawsuit in late May on behalf of the 11-branch bank, which has assets of about $554 million. It seeks class-action status so other community banks can join the litigation.
While it is unclear whether many small banks will do so, the legal action is further evidence that the scandal is reverberating well beyond the confines of Wall Street and the City of London.
Big banks are already facing an array of Libor-related lawsuits by some big investors and local governments, such as the city of Baltimore.
Tompkins, whose class-action firm has handled securities, antitrust and consumer lawsuits, said U.S. community banks might have lost more than $1 billion over four years on loans to small businesses at artificially low rates.
The alleged manipulation hurt small banks that operate on thin profit margins and rely more on interest income than large banks with diverse trading operations, he said.
The lawsuit accuses the banks of violating the mob-busting U.S. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act by rigging rates.
The bank defendants declined to comment. They have said in court papers seeking dismissal of other Libor lawsuits that plaintiffs have failed to show how banks acted to restrict competition, even if rates were misstated.

The mannequins should be a very familiar prop to those who have been following the Vigilant Citizen blog for any length of time, with possibly hundreds of examples illustrating the dissociated identities created through the trauma of Satanic Ritual Abuse.
A seemingly endless array of fashion shoots and pop videos present the victims of abuse and their alter identities using lifeless representations of people that include mannequins, dolls, robots, puppets, stuffed animals, masks and shadows.
A celebrity is pictured next to a doll or mannequin signalling mind control, alter personalities and dissociation.
What's illustrated is the issue of control over the body and the ability to influence one's own condition and situation by their will.
The two pictured are one in body but separate as distinctly compartmentalized identities.

July 17: LIBOR Scandal May Cost Banks $35 Billion
The Libor scandal gets more expensive for the banking sector almost by the day.
Banks may end up paying $35 billion in civil damages for manipulating Libor, according to a new report by analysts
at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, an investment bank specializing in financial services.
July 17: State Bankruptcy Crises “Threaten Social Order”
WASHINGTON — State finances are teetering with $4 trillion in unfunded liabilities to cover pensions and health care for state workers, along with revenue shortfalls, antiquated financial practices and skyrocketing Medicaid costs, according to a report released Tuesday.
The State Budget Crisis Task Force — organized by former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker and former New York Lt. Gov. Richard Ravitch (D) — is the first complete study of the state finances conducted without the involvement of state government groups.
"The thing that worries me is the threats to the social order," Ravitch told The Huffington Post, noting that "cultural and social bankruptcy precede financial bankruptcy." "You can't cut human services and cut the ability of government to take care of the people."
July 17: National Review Online Calls For Mitt Romney to Release Tax Returns
Yet another conservative voice — or in this case, publication — has joined the chorus calling for Mitt Romney to release his tax returns.
The right-leaning National Review Online released an editorial
Tuesday arguing that Romney may not be required legally to release his tax returns, but that at this point, he needs to do so anyway.
"It is to President Obama's advantage to fight the election out over tactics and minutiae," the editors wrote. "By drawing out the argument over the returns, Romney is playing into the president's hands. He should release them, respond to any attacks they bring, and move on."
The presumptive GOP nominee has refused to release any more tax returns — so far, he's made public his 2010 return and an estimate of his 2011 return — even as Democrats continue to attack him for his lack of transparency.
A number of conservatives, including pundits Bill Kristol
and George Will and GOP politicians such as former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and primary rival Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, have called for Romney to release the documents.
Romney said in an interview published Tuesday
by National Review Online that he is "simply not enthusiastic about giving [the Obama campaign] hundreds or thousands of more pages to pick through, distort, and lie about."
July 17: After LIBOR, Use Your Imagination to Find the Next Scandal
No one would have believed Libor interest rates could generate the biggest scandal in financial services since Fred Goodwin waltzed off into the sunset with a £500,000 annual pension.
That was until a journalist on the Wall Street Journal noticed there was something odd about the numbers banks were submitting during the financial crisis, prompting a multi-million pound transatlantic investigation.
Its findings shone an unflattering light into one of the City's dark corners that resulted in Barclays paying £290m in fines and saw the resignations of its chief executive, chief operating officer and chairman.
But Libor interest rates aren't the only oddity in the Square Mile.
Here we shine a light into a few more of the City's dark corners. The professionals dismiss talk of a scandal coming from any of them. But they used to say that about Libor interest rates.

July 17: US Senate Opens Huge Case Against HSBC Bank
Britain's biggest bank allowed rogue states and drugs cartels to launder billions of pounds through its branches.
HSBC stands accused of fostering such a ‘polluted’ culture it became a conduit for criminal enterprises.
A top executive at the bank sensationally quit yesterday in front of a US Senate hearing that exposed the scale of the scandal.
Following the Barclays rate-fixing revelations, it deals another blow to the City of London’s reputation.
HSBC – one of the few UK banks to survive the financial crisis with its reputation intact – now faces up to £640million in penalties. A devastating 335-page Senate report accused HSBC of ignoring warnings and breaching safeguards that should have stopped the laundering of money from Mexico, Iran and Syria.
The bank failed to monitor a staggering £38trillion of money moving across borders from places that could have posed a risk, including the Cayman Islands and Switzerland.
The failures stretched to dealings with Saudi Arabian bank Al Rajhi, which was linked to the financing of terrorism following 9/11.
HSBC’s American arm, HBUS, initially severed all ties with Al Rajhi. But it later agreed to supply the Saudi bank with US banknotes after it threatened to pull all of its business with HSBC worldwide.
July 17: HSBC Chief Quits In Front of Senate
Head of compliance at British banking giant HSBC resigned in front of a US Senate subcommittee today after it emerged the bank had exposed the US to billions of dollars worth of money laundering, drug trafficking, and terrorist financing.
David Bagley, who has been HSBC head of group compliance since 2002, stepped down before the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee after its findings were published.
Mr Bagley, who had a 20 year career with the bank and is based in London, said: ‘Despite the best efforts and intentions of many dedicated professionals, HSBC has fallen short of our own expectations and the expectations of our regulators.’
CNBC's Rick Santelli just reiterated his earlier sentiment that the comments that Mr. Bernanke made earlier were indeed the "Libor Smoking Gun"….
As Rick notes in Bernanke's own words: "the manipulation of rates was a little bit low by certain banks but they just wanted to show they were healthy during the crisis" – unbelievable!….
Must watch 100 seconds of eye-opening reality TV.
July 18: "Wall Street is Ruining America" – Calls for Arrests
Wall Street — that amalgam of hedge funds, bankers and the rest — keeps committing transgressions at a time when most Americans are still raw over the housing bubble, the deep financial crisis that followed and the ensuing bailouts.
There are so many, it's hard to keep up — and to contain the outrage.
The latest is the scandal over the artificial fixing of the benchmark London Interbank Offered Rate
, (Libor) on which the value of some $350 trillion worth of derivatives, mortgages, student loans and other assets is determined.
The kicker is that regulators around the world, including those at the New York Federal Reserve Bank when it was headed by Timothy Geithner
, now the Treasury secretary, knew about the problem as early as 2007 and didn't do anything until the financial press blew the whistle and forced their hand….
Just look at how the Libor scandal has progressed. Regulators in at least seven countries are now investigating a wide swath of the financial system, even though members of the Fed were aware of deficiencies in the survey system that sets the interest rate five years ago.
And now, there is evidence the Bank of England was complicit in the manipulation of rates in 2008….
I checked in with Robert Wright, an economic historian at Augustana College in Illinois, for some perspective on all this. He [said]… it's unusual, and somewhat frightening, that, aside from GOP presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, there is no political figure sounding the anti-Wall-Street battle cry.
There is no modern-day Andrew Jackson, who took down the Second Bank of the United States — one of our early central banks — out of concern that stockholders were earning easy profits from taxpayers via the privilege of using cheap government money to make loans.
Sounds like the deal today's Federal Reserve member banks get….

July 19: Media Prioritize Animal Attacks and Tom Cruise Over LIBOR Scandal
Instead of covering one of the largest banking scandals in history, American television news outlets have focused on the divorce of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, shark sightings, and a chimpanzee attack.
Last week, we documented
how television news outlets are practically ignoring an emerging controversy over whether major financial institutions have been manipulating the LIBOR, a key interest rate
banks use to borrow money from each other that is "used as a benchmark to set payments on about $800 trillion worth of financial instruments."
MIT professor of finance Andrew Lo told
CNN Money that the LIBOR-manipulation story "dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scams in the history of markets."
In the fifteen days after news broke that U.S. and U.K. regulators had fined British multinational bank Barclays $450 million for its role in trying to rig the LIBOR, ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC spent only 12 minutes combined reporting on the story during their evening newscasts and opinion programming.
With few exceptions — notably MSNBC's Up with Chris Hayes and Current TV's Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer — the scandal has been largely relegated to financial outlets.
In a post chiding ABC and NBC for ignoring LIBOR entirely during their flagship nightly news programs, Washington Post
media writer Erik Wemple joked
that ABC "[c]an't bump complicated, clunky old LIBOR for fins protruding from the ocean."
Wemple's suggestion that the networks' failure to cover LIBOR was not caused by their preference for other important hard news stories is depressingly accurate.
The same outlets that found only 12 minutes of time to report on LIBOR from June 27 to July 12 during their evening programming devoted nearly 65 minutes to stories about sharks during that same time period.
The numbers are even worse when comparing LIBOR coverage to coverage of the divorce of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. ABC, NBC, CNN, Fox News and MSNBC devoted almost 91 minutes to stories related to the celebrity divorce, which is more than seven times longer than they spent on LIBOR during the same period.
Only CBS' Evening News, which was the only network newscast to cover LIBOR during the time of this study, ignored the divorce.
Similarly, a story about chimpanzees attacking an American student at an animal sanctuary in Africa received more than 20 minutes of primetime coverage.
CBS was the only network to devote more coverage to LIBOR than to these trivial stories during the study.

July 26, 2008: Sadism in “The Dark Knight”
If I were 10 years old, would I be badgering my parents to take me to see the new Batman film, The Dark Knight? You bet I would. It's the latest and biggest release in the superhero genre, which children instantly understand as a direct appeal to their special interests.
It's also touched with the alluring suggestion of forbidden fruit: the maniacal, deranged face of The Joker, grippingly played by the late Heath Ledger, leers from posters all over town.
If I were the parent who relented and took a 10-year-old child to see The Dark Knight, would I be sorry?
Once again, you bet I would. It's different from other superhero films, as fans are quick to point out.
Certainly, there are surprises in its swooping camera angles and darkened, ominous screen.
But the greatest surprise of all – even for me, after eight years spent working as a film critic – has been the sustained level of intensely sadistic brutality throughout the film.
I will attempt to confine my plot spoilers to the opening: the film begins with a heist carried out by men in sinister clown masks. As each clown completes a task, another shoots him point-blank in the head.
The scene ends with a clown – The Joker – stuffing a bomb into a wounded bank employee's mouth.
After the murderous clown heist, things slip downhill. A man's face is filleted by a knife, and another's is burned half off. A man's eye is slammed into a pencil.
A bomb can be seen crudely stitched inside another man's stomach, which subsequently explodes. A trussed-up man is bound to a chair and set alight atop a pile of banknotes.
A plainly terrorised child is threatened at gunpoint by a man with a melted face. It is all intensely realistic. Oh but don't worry, folks: there isn't any nudity.
What's the problem? I can already hear some people asking. It's all a comic-book fantasy, and comic books are well known for their surreal, cartoonish bursts of violence.
But the director, Christopher Nolan, hasn't sought to ramp up the cartoonish aspects of his superhero story, as other directors before him have. He has tried instead to make the violence and fear as believable as possible, and in this he has succeeded.
The Dark Knight, however, has been rated 12A by the British Board of Film Classification, which means that although the BBFC believes it is best suited to children aged 12 and over, any under-12 can see it provided he or she is accompanied by an adult.
Cinemas are even holding parent-and-baby screenings….
Increasingly, extreme screen violence is used not as a necessary adjunct to a greater point, but as the pleasurable point in itself.
Wanted, this summer's otherwise risible action blockbuster starring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy, has as its theme the murderous adventures of a fraternity of assassins.
McAvoy, again the hero, is portrayed as a hopeless nobody until he "finds himself" by unleashing his killing streak and is thereby empowered.
The Joker, too, croons over his own penchant for knife killing: "Guns are too quick. You can't savour all the little emotions." He's not officially the hero, but he might as well be: next to him, Batman pales into insignificance.

Plans for The Dark Knight Rises have fallen through in France with Warner Bros. cancelling the film’s red carpet premiere in Paris on Friday night in addition to media interviews with director Christopher Nolan and cast members.
Nolan and Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway and Morgan Freeman are at Paris' hotel Le Bristol to promote the film. However, journalists present at le Bristol for a daytime press conference were told to leave.
In lieu of the shooting in Colorado, Warner Bros. has cancelled the interviews. TF1 said that Cotillard was set for an interview on the network's 8 p.m. news program, but cancelled her appearance today.

Details about the shooting and James Holmes continue to trickle out from around the country. "He had his hair painted red," said NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly (a friend of Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates), New York Daily News reports.
"He said he was the Joker, enemy of Batman." ABC News reports that Holmes made the Joker remark to police, not during the shooting.
As a business that is attracting a late-night audience, Century Theaters owed a duty to its patrons to keep them safe. So steps like keeping emergency doors closed and having security personnel to conduct pat-downs of ticket holders may have been a good idea.
Then again, it could be Century Theaters took all the reasonable precautions.
It's still not clear what safety measures Century Theaters took, but James Holmes allegedly made it into the theater while armed to the teeth. One can only speculate if enhanced security measures could have prevented the Colorado shooting.
July 20: Elizabeth Warren: LIBOR “Exposes Rot at the Core of Our Financial System”
"The Libor scandal is more than just the latest financial deception to come to light. It exposes a fraud that runs to the heart of our financial system," writes Warren, a long-time Wall Street critic who is running for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.
"The Libor fraud exposes rot at the core of the financial system," Warren writes….
While Barclays has so far borne the brunt of public wrath over the Libor scandal, evidence emerged this week that the American bank Citigroup may have in fact been the biggest interest-rate manipulator
out of all the banks involved.

July 20: The End of Wall Street As We Know It?
This is the way old Wall Street ends: with a whimper. Ask the man in the street if banking and bankers have changed since the credit crisis and you'll certainly get the answer: no.
You can blame JPMorgan Chase chief executive Jamie Dimon's genetic inability to sound contrite, and the $6bn blow-up in his bank's trading operation, for that.
And the Libor scandal. And revelations about how the industry is lobbying to water down reforms. And – the list goes on.
But ask the man on Wall Street if banking has changed, and you'll get a different answer. In the period immediately after the bailouts of 2008, some dared hope for a swift return to the high-octane trading, bumper bonuses and cascading profits of the pre-crisis era.
What has happened instead is a multi-year squeeze on their activity that is shrinking Wall Street banks, cutting headcount and bonuses, and gutting the returns that shareholders used to enjoy.
And after another set of lacklustre quarterly results from the major banks over the past week, including revenue declines almost across the board, there is absolutely no sign of the squeeze ending.
Piece by little piece, Wall Street banks are cutting themselves down to size, and most promised more job losses and belt-tightening to come in the next few months.
The question is whether the cuts go far enough for shareholders.
In the boom years until 2007, there was so much money rolling in that employees could feast at the bonus trough and still leave more than enough in profits to satisfy investors. Now the bankers and their shareholders are turning on each other.

July 21: Rupert Murdoch Steps Down from UK Newspapers
Rupert Murdoch has resigned as a director of a string of companies behind The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times, fuelling expectations that he is preparing to sell the newspaper group.
Companies House filings show that Mr Murdoch stepped down from the boards of the NI Group, Times Newspaper Holdings and News Corp Investments in the UK last week. He also quit a number of News Corp’s US boards, the details of which have yet to be disclosed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
News Corporation played down the significance of the resignations as “nothing more than a corporate housecleaning exercise prior to the company split”.
The media giant took a similar line when James Murdoch resigned a string of directorships at News International last November, pouring cold water on suggestions that he was walking away from the UK newspaper arm. He quit as chairman three months later.
News Corporation has already said it will split into two separately listed companies, distancing its embattled newspaper and book publishing interests from its rapidly growing film and television operations, which account for nearly 90pc of News Corp’s $4.2bn (£2.7bn) annual revenues.
July 21: Rupert Murdoch Quits as News International Director
Murdoch has also resigned from the boards of a dozen companies with interests in the US, Australia
and India, it was revealed. It is thought that he resigned as director at some point over the last week….
Some staff are said to be concerned that the move is a precursor to putting the UK titles up for sale following a rocky year in which NI has been badly damaged by revelations of widespread phone hacking at its now defunct newspaper News of The World.
Earlier this year a parliamentary committee said Murdoch was "not a fit person" to run an international business.
Media analyst Claire Enders said Murdoch's resignations were part of the "controlled fade of Rupert and James from the UK" that began last year in order to take a "psychological step back" from embarrassments such as the recent phone hacking scandal.
"It's the big farewell, it's time to move on. They are leaving the country and they won't be back. It is quite a historic moment," she said.
July 21: Sorcha Faal Connects Shooting to 32T Fraud Article Implicating Alliance
"If we could figure out how to tax all this offshore wealth without killing the proverbial golden goose, or at least entice its owners to reinvest it back home, this sector of the global underground is easily large enough to make a significant contribution to tax justice, investment and paying the costs of global problems like climate change," Henry says.
He corroborates his findings by using national accounts to assemble estimates of the cumulative capital flight from more than 130 low- to middle-income countries over almost 40 years, and the returns their wealthy owners are likely to have made from them.

July 22: BBC Reports up to 32 Trillion Hidden in Offshore Tax Havens, Blames it on 139 Developing Countries
A global super-rich elite had at least $21 trillion (£13tn) hidden in secret tax havens by the end of 2010, according to a major study.
The figure is equivalent to the size of the US and Japanese economies combined….
The report highlights the impact on the balance sheets of 139 developing countries of money held in tax havens that is put beyond the reach of local tax authorities.
Mr Henry estimates that since the 1970s, the richest citizens of these 139 countries had amassed $7.3tn to $9.3tn of "unrecorded offshore wealth" by 2010.
Private wealth held offshore represents "a huge black hole in the world economy," Mr Henry said.
Mr Whiting, though, urged caution.
"I cannot disprove the figures at all, but they do seem staggering. If the suggestion is that such amounts are actively hidden and never accessed, that seems odd – not least in terms of what the tax authorities are doing. In fact, the US, UK and German authorities are doing a lot."
He also pointed out that if tax havens were stuffed with such sizeable amounts, "you would expect the havens to be more conspicuously wealthy than they are".

(Reuters) – Prosecutors and European regulators are close to arresting individual traders and charging them with colluding to manipulate global benchmark interest rates, according to people familiar with a sweeping investigation into the rigging scandal.
Federal prosecutors in Washington, D.C., have recently contacted lawyers representing some of the suspects to notify them that criminal charges and arrests could be imminent, said two of those sources, who asked not to be identified because the investigation is ongoing.
Defense lawyers, some of whom represent suspects, said prosecutors have indicated they plan to begin making arrests and filing criminal charges in the next few weeks.
In long-running financial investigations it is not uncommon for prosecutors to contact defense lawyers before filing charges to offer suspects a chance to cooperate or take a plea, these lawyers said.
July 22: Marine Corps Creates Law Enforcement Battalions
CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — The Marine Corps has created its first law enforcement battalions
— a specialized force of military police officers that it hopes can quickly deploy worldwide to help investigate crimes from terrorism to drug trafficking and train fledgling security forces in allied nations.
The Corps activated three such battalions last month. Each consists of roughly 500 military police officers and dozens of dogs.
Maj. Jan Durham says the Marine Corps has had police battalions off and on since WWII but they were primarily focused on providing security, such as accompanying fuel convoys or visiting generals through dangerous areas. Durham is commander of the 1st Law Enforcement Battalion at Camp Pendleton.
The new additions come as every branch in the military is trying to show its flexibility and resourcefulness amid defense cuts.
July 22: James Holmes Speaking at Science Camp About “Temporal Illusions” – Changing the Past
July 23: Colorado University Held Identical Drill, Same Day as Shooting
The tragedy that played out in an Aurora movie theater Friday was ironically paralleled as a classroom learning experience in a medical school in Parker the same day.
Rocky Vista University College of Osteopathic Medicine is in the middle of holding specialized classes in disaster life support for 150 second-year medical students.
Along with response to natural disasters like hurricanes and floods and terrorist attacks, one of the scenarios being used to train the students is how to respond if a shooter fires at people in a movie theater and also uses a bomb in the attack.
"The irony is amazing, just amazing," said Rocky Vista Dean Dr. Bruce Dubin.
July 23: Tony Blair – Hanging Bankers Won’t Help
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, the former prime minister launches a defence of the free market and liberal economic rules established by the Thatcher government.
The approach promoted by Baroness Thatcher’s government is not to blame for the recent financial and economic crisis, Mr Blair says, warning against taking vengeance on bankers and increasing State intervention in the private sector.
We must not start thinking that society will be better off “if we hang 20 bankers at the end of the street”, Mr Blair says.
Big international banks are still the focus of public and political attacks for what critics say was their role in causing the financial crisis.
Mr Blair cautions against letting that anger lead to regulations that could reverse Lady Thatcher’s work to reduce government involvement in free markets….
Senior figures from the main parties have suggested that the crisis and alleged wrongdoing of banks such as Barclays should lead to tougher controls on banks.
Mr Blair challenges those calls, and says: “We mustn’t go back to the State running everything.”….
Mr Blair’s intervention is likely to prove controversial because of his commercial interests since leaving Downing Street five years ago.
He is an adviser to JP Morgan, a US investment bank; Zurich, a Swiss financial firm; and has clients, including several governments, which are said to deliver an annual income of about £20 million.
July 24: Phone Hacking Charges Rock London
British prosecutors say they have the evidence to prove there was a criminal conspiracy at Rupert Murdoch's News of the World newspaper involving former senior executives, including Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks, to hack the phones of more than 600 people including the murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler.
Announcing the charging of eight people over the phone-hacking scandal on Tuesday, prosecutors alleged the tabloid's targets ranged from a victim of the 7 July 2005 terrorist attacks to celebrities and senior Labour politicians.
Coulson left the editorship of the News of the World in 2007 after a journalist and private investigator were convicted of phone hacking, and would go on to be appointed as director of communications for the Conservative party.
After the 2010 election Coulson worked in Downing Street for David Cameron, who said he deserved a "second chance", as one of the prime minister's most senior advisers, before Coulson resigned as renewed controversy over phone hacking grew.
Prosecutors say other victims of hacking include former senior Labour cabinet ministers such as the former deputy prime minister John Prescott, two former home secretaries, David Blunkett and Charles Clarke, and the former culture secretary Tessa Jowell.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said it would charge Coulson and the former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks in relation to the hacking of Milly Dowler's phone.
The allegations about the hacking of the murdered schoolgirl's phone led Murdoch to decide to shut down the News of the World in 2011.
Also charged over phone hacking are Stuart Kuttner, former managing editor of the News of the World, Ian Edmondson, former news editor, Greg Miskiw, another former news editor, Neville Thurlbeck, former chief reporter, James Weatherup, former assistant news editor, and the private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.
Alison Levitt QC, principal legal adviser to the director of public prosecutions, announced the decision on Tuesday.
She said the charges related to allegations of phone hacking from 3 October 2000 to August 2006. The CPS alleges that more than 600 people were victims.
Levitt said: "All, with the exception of Glenn Mulcaire, will be charged with conspiring to intercept communications without lawful authority, from 3 October 2000 to 9 August 2006.
The communications in question are the voicemail messages of well-known people and/or those associated with them. There is a schedule containing the names of over 600 people who the prosecution will say are the victims of this offence."
The CPS said victims included Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, the celebrity chef Delia Smith, the actors Jude Law, Sadie Frost, Sienna Miller, Wayne Rooney, Sir Paul McCartney and his former wife Heather Mills, Sven-Goran Eriksson, the former England manager, and the former trade union leader Andrew Gilchrist.
Another alleged victim is Prof John Tulloch, who was left bloody and burnt after the worst ever terrorist attacks on the UK mainland in July 2005, targeting London's transport system….
In the years following the 2007 conviction of one of its journalists for phone hacking the royal household, News International insisted the practice was limited to one rogue reporter.
The charging decisions follow a Scotland Yard investigation that began last year, after police had repeatedly said for over a year that there was no need to reopen the investigation.
In July 2009, the Guardian began running a series of articles that claimed phone hacking was more widespread than previously admitted.
On Monday, police said they believed there were 4,775 potential victims of phone hacking, of whom 2,615 had been notified.
The Metropolitan police deputy assistant commissioner Sue Akers told the Leveson inquiry her force had notified more than 702 people who were "likely" to have been victims.
The CPS has received files from the Met's Operation Weeting team covering 13 individuals, including 11 journalists from the News of the World and Mulcaire.
The CPS said three of the 13 would not face charges, and added they had not made a decision on two people at the request of the police, who want to make further inquiries.
The previous phone-hacking investigation has been criticised as being insufficiently thorough.
The Met says it launched Operation Weeting after receiving "significant new information" from News International on 26 January last year. A total of 24 people including 15 current and former journalists have been arrested as part of the operation.
Police have also detained 41 people under Operation Elveden, an investigation into alleged corrupt payments made to police officers and other public officials.
Seven people have been arrested as part of Operation Tuleta, investigating the scale of computer hacking and other breaches of privacy.
July 24: James Holmes and US Government Research
In 2006, at the age of 18, Holmes served as a research intern at the Salk Institute at the University of California at San Diego in La Jolla.
It is noteworthy that for the previous two years before Holmes worked at the Salk Institute, the research center was partnered with the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Columbia University, University of California at San Francisco, University of Wisconsin at Madison, Wake Forest University, and the Mars Company (the manufacturers of Milky Way and Snickers bars) to prevent fatigue in combat troops through the enhanced use of epicatechina, a blood flow-increasing and blood vessel-dilating anti-oxidant flavanol found in cocoa and, particularly, in dark chocolate.
The research was part of a larger DARPA program known as the "Peak Soldier Performance Program," which involved creating brain-machine interfaces for battlefield use, including human-robotic bionics for legs, arms, and eyes.
DARPA works closely with the Defense Science Office on projects that include the medical research community. Fitzsimons was at the forefront of DARPA research on the use of brain-connected "neuroprosthetic" limbs for soldiers amputated or paralyzed in combat.
According to his LinkedIn profile, James Holmes's father, Dr. Robert Holmes, who received a PhD in Statistics in 1981 from the University of California at Berkeley, worked for San Diego-based HNC Software, Inc. from 2000 to 2002.
HNC, known as a "neural network" company, and DARPA, beginning in 1998, have worked on developing "cortronic neural networks," which would allow machines to interpret aural and visual stimuli to think like humans.
The cortronic concept was developed by HNC Software's chief scientist and co-founder, Robert Hecht-Nielsen.
HNC merged with the Minneapolis-based Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO), a computer analysis and decision-making company. Robert Holmes continues to work at FICO.
July 24: ABC News Special Video on Mind Control
(You Tube) In 1979, just two years after U.S. Senate hearings revealed disturbing information about a secret government mind control program code-named Project MKULTRA, this one-hour documentary covering some of the clandestine, illegal activities involved in this mind control project was released.
One of the topics covered by this intriguing film is the bizarre activity of a man named George White, who operated outside of the law while directly under CIA direction.
At minute 47 into the documentary correspondent Paul Altmeyer states, “And what of George White, the man who helped the agency in so many of its programs.
Shortly before his death, he wrote to his boss at the CIA, Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, and summed up his career by saying, ‘It was fun, fun, fun. Where else could a red-blooded American boy lie, kill and cheat, steal, deceive, rape and pillage with the sanction and blessing of the all highest.’”
The film also mentions that Dr. Gottlieb destroyed the records of the mind control programs in 1973. He and many others involved in these projects did not want the public to ever know about the many illegal and immoral activities they had sponsored in their quest of control over the mind.
Thankfully, he forgot to destroy the financial records, which contain highly incriminating information. These declassified documents can be ordered by anyone using the information at this link.
Though the CIA denies that the mind control techniques developed in their secretive projects were successful, an abundance of evidence in this film and elsewhere suggests otherwise.
July 25: NSA Whistleblowers: Government Spying on Every American
Testimonies delivered in recent weeks by former employees of the National Security Agency suggest that the US government is granting itself surveillance powers far beyond what most Americans consider the proper role of the federal government.
In an interview broadcast on Current TV’s “Viewpoint” program on Monday, former NSA Technical Director William Binney commented on the government’s policy of blanket surveillance, alongside colleagues Thomas Drake and Kirk Wiebe, the agency's respective former Senior Official and Senior Analyst.
The interview comes on the heels of a series of speeches given by Binney, who has quickly become better known for his whistleblowing than his work with the NSA. In their latest appearance this week, though, the three former staffers suggested that America’s spy program is much more dangerous than it seems.
In an interview with “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer, Drake said there was a “key decision made shortly after 9/11, which began to rapidly turn the United States of America into the equivalent of a foreign nation for dragnet blanket electronic surveillance.”
These powers have previously defended by claims of national security necessity, but Drake says that it doesn’t stop there. He warns that the government is giving itself the power to gather intel on every American that could be used in future prosecutions unrelated to terrorism.
“When you open up the Pandora’s Box of just getting access to incredible amounts of data, for people that have no reason to be put under suspicion, no reason to have done anything wrong, and just collect all that for potential future use or even current use, it opens up a real danger — and to what else what they could use that data for, particularly when it’s all being hidden behind the mantle of national security,” Drake said.
Although Drake’s accusations seem astounding, they corroborate allegations made by Binney only a week earlier. Speaking at the Hackers On Planet Earth conference in New York City earlier this month, Binney addressed a room of thousands about the NSA’s domestic spying efforts.
But in a candid interview with journalist Geoff Shively during HOPE, the ex-NSA official candidly revealed the full extent of the surveillance program.
“Domestically, they're pulling together all the data about virtually every U.S. citizen in the country and assembling that information, building communities that you have relationships with, and knowledge about you; what your activities are; what you're doing. So the government is accumulating that kind of information about every individual person and it's a very dangerous process,” Binney said.
Drake and Binney’s statements follow the revelation that law enforcement officers collected cell phone records on 1.3 million Americans in 2011.
More news articles are emerging every day suggesting that the surveillance of Americans — off-the-radar and under wraps — is growing at an exponential rate.
July 25: Europe’s Meltdown is a Coming Depression
I’ve said for ages that the euro will fail, that the countries of the Mediterranean are bankrupt, that Germany doesn’t have the resources to fill the void, and that the Western world is entering not a recession, but a depression: a huge, 10-year, economic slump.
And here we are.
July 25: Fed Reserve Audit Bill Overwhelmingly Passes House
WASHINGTON — In a rare moment of bipartisanship, the House overwhelmingly passed a bill by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) to audit the Federal Reserve.
The bill, which has 270 co-sponsors, passed 327 to 98. All but one Republican — Rep. Bob Turner of New York — voted for it, along with 89 Democrats.
But Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) pointed out that the House vote on the bill comes on the same day that the Washington Post reported
that the New York Fed "did not communicate in key meetings with top regulators that British bank Barclays had admitted to Fed staffers that it was rigging LIBOR,” the index which sets interest rates worldwide.
"The Fed creates trillions of dollars out of nothing and gives it to banks. Congress is in the dark. The Fed sets the stage for the subprime meltdown. Congress is in the dark.
The Fed takes a dive on LIBOR. Congress is in the dark. The Fed doesn’t tell regulators what is going on. Congress is in the dark," Kucinich shouted on the House floor, just before the vote.
"It is time for us to bring the Fed into the sunshine of accountability," he said.
July 25: Synchromystic Wonderland in Colorado Shootings
The unfolding Aurora red dawn event has evolved from a breaking news item, to a wall-to-wall massacre media madness melodrama, to America's favorite "false flag
" conspiracy and entertainment news distraction.
July 25: Sorcha Faal on Connection Between LIBOR and Colorado
A highly disturbing Ministry of Finance
report on the largest bank fraud in history that is circulating in the Kremlin today warns that it is “within the realm of possibility”
that the shocking movie massacre in Colorado this past week is but another “integral part”
in the deliberate plan put in place by Western banking elites and their allies to collapse the global economy.
[DW: Constant references to a Ministry of Finance report circulating in the Kremlin. No link is ever given to such a report. The Ministry of Finance link only goes to their page.]
Most important to note about James Holmes, however, this report says, is that his father, Robert Holmes, was said to have been scheduled to testify within the next few weeks before a US Senate panel on the largest bank fraud scandal in world history that is currently unfolding and threatens to destabilize and destroy the Western banking system.
, whose “blueblood”
family links go back to the Mayflower
, is known throughout the global banking community as being the creator of one of the most sophisticated computer algorithms ever developed and is credited with developing predictive models for financial services; credit and fraud risk models, first and third party application fraud models and internet/online banking fraud models.
Educated at the University of California, Berkeley and Stanford University, Robert Holmes is currently the senior lead scientist with the American credit score company FICO
, which was formally known as Fair, Isaac and Company, and which every American citizen is beholden to should they need to borrow money….
Even worse, according to this report, Holmes recently completed his work on what is called one of the most sophisticated computer algorithms ever developed that not only uncovered the true intent of this massive fraud, but is, also, able to trace the Trillions of Dollars “lost” to the exact bank accounts of the elite classes who have stolen it.
Ministry intelligence officials note in this report that it is “no coincidence”
that this Colorado massacre occurred within minutes of London’s Guardian News Service releasing their shocking report this past Saturday (21 July) titled “Wealth Doesn't trickle Down – It Just Floods Offshore, Research Reveals
” as Robert Holmes algorithms were said used to discover this massive fraud scheme.
Robert Holmes’ LinkedIn Profile
My educational background is in Mathematics and Statistics.
My experience over the last 10 years at HNC and FICO has been in develping predictive models for financial services; credit & fraud risk models,first and third party application fraud models and internet/online banking fraud models.
Research Confirms Robert Holmes is Shooter’s Father
The younger Robert went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in mathematics at Stanford, a master’s in biostatistics at UCLA, and a doctorate in statistics at the University of California at Berkeley in 1981.
His doctoral thesis was titled “Contributions to the Theory of Parametric Estimation in Randomly Censored Data.”
He subsequently authored studies for the Navy and the Marine Corps on how to forecast personnel changes using something called “tree classifications,” the trees in question being statistical.
Eventually, reports say, he signed on as a low-six-figure-a-year senior scientist with FICO, which produces management systems, fraud protection, and credit scores. He married Arlene Holmes, a nurse.
July 26: Proof We Have Been Lied To in Colorado Shooting
AURORA — The following is a timeline of actual events that took place just after the mass shooting was reported to 911 in a Colorado theatre during a midnight showing of the new Batman film:
4 MIN. 30 SEC… SUSPECT CAUGHT
6 MIN 46 SEC… “One of the shooters is wearing white and blue clothing”
8 MIN 6 SEC… WITNESSES REPORT MULTIPLE SUSPECTS
16 MIN 8 SEC… MALE SUSPECT SEEN WITH RED BACK PACK AND ANOTHER ALL IN BLACK FLEEING THE SCENE
16 MIN. 47 SEC… Cops describe one of the suspects as male, dressed in black camo, vest, gas mask, and possessing multiple long guns.
17 MIN 48 SEC… JAMES HOLMES WAS NAMED…. BUT SECONDS BEFORE THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT A SECOND SUSPECT ON LOOSE…. GOT AWAY
July 26: James Holmes Claims Amnesia
The Joker is playing the amnesia card.
Accused mass murderer James Holmes
told jailhouse workers that he remains stumped about what landed him in a Colorado lockup, a jail staffer told the Daily News.
“He claims he doesn’t know why he’s in jail,” the worker said Thursday. “He asked, ‘Why am I here?’”
July 26: James Holmes Father About to Testify for LIBOR?
July 26 (From Above Article)
July 27: Illuminati Eye in London Fireworks?
July 28: Another Article (of many) Claiming Holmes’ Father Testifying for LIBOR
Robert Holmes not only uncovered the true intent of the massive LIBOR
banking fraud, but his "predictive algorithm model" also traced the trillions of "hidden" dollars to the exact bank accounts of the elite classes who stole it.
In other words, Robert Holmes could NAME NAMES!
Those names WOULD AWAKEN THE WORLD to the depth of government and corporate corruption which could include members of Congress, Wall Street, Federal Reserve and EU executives and could even include US Presidential candidates and the British Royal family.
[Undated] Olympic Opening Ceremony: Luciferian Ritual
Veronica Chapman Exposes David Booth [Broken, Unarchived Link]
Booth’s Own Website Reveals Luciferian Ties to “Sorcha Faal”
This statement is in direct contradiction to what has been posted on WhatDoesItMean.Com since 2004 about the Sorcha Faal and which clearly states:
[Every reference is to “The Sorcha Faal” – and “Sister Rachal” is admitted to be one of the group, and David Booth’s daughter.]
I have known for some time now that I would end up being the one tasked with this most disgusting of assignments having to defend our Sorcha Faal against the most insidious attacks being leveled against her by the powerful anti-semitic forces in the United States and Canada, namely that she ‘doesn’t exist’ and is, in fact, Sister Rachal’s father, David Booth.
Jan. 12, 2011: A. True Ott on Sorcha Faal
“As of Rachal” is the name of Sorcha Faal’s actual group, of which “Sorcha Faal” is merely an anagram designed to obfuscate and confuse.
It is an Israeli group of female witches (literally) who in turn are connected to one David Booth who is a top-level MOSSAD agent located in England.
I did an extensive expose report on this a year or so ago, BTW.
Booth’s family tree goes back to British banking agent John Wilkes Booth – who but a bullet in Lincoln’s brain as you recall. Thanks for doing your part and helping to set the record straight.
It’s funny how I begin to write on a story, and “Sorcha Faal” blends my research into their disinformation-plagued “Kremlin reports.” Glad to know they consider my research important enough to monitor, however.
Thanks for helping set the record straight, and for the heads-up.
Jan. 14, 2011: Sorcha Faal Expose
1. Sorcha Faal appears to be an acronym for a multi-generational cabal of Ashkenazim Jewish women who first formed clear back in 1290 A.D.
If this is accurate and true, they have continued their organizational structure through world wars and upheavals in Europe to the present day – and consist of a tightly-knit group of 13 “sisters” at the very top of their “Order”.
A close examination of their website, “What Does It Mean” shows an amalgamation of witchcraft (WICCA) and “mystic” new-age icons, which gives an awake Christian a very strong clue as to their true agenda.
They are NOT “Christian”, and likely follow instead the “old, mystery religion” of Babylon – which involves scrying and demonic divination practices primarily.
2. The group fancies themselves literal descendants of Rachal (aka Rachel) the daughter of the biblical Jacob. The actual title of this master coven is “As of Rachal” a title consisting of 9 letters.
3. I discovered that when you take the 9 letters of “As of Rachal” and give each a numeric value, (one through nine) – and then place these letters in the 9-lettered “Masonic Tracing Board” (which is also referred to by Babylonian Kabbala as the “Tree of Life”) – the “tracing board” transforms “As of Rachal” into “sorcha faal”.
Thus, Sorcha Faal is the overt public name of their coven, while the actual name “As of Rachal” remains covert and hidden from the profane “goyim”.
4. The current leader of the coven is apparently the daughter of one David Booth, and her name is “Rachal” as well. (Rachal Booth,) David Booth appears to be linked in many ways to MOSSAD, and reportedly maintains close ties with MOSSAD agents in Israel and Mother Russia.
David Booth, according to genealogical websites I personally accessed, traces his ancestry to one John Wilkes Booth, agent of the House of Rothschild Bank of England and assassin of Lincoln. How little things appear to change!!
5. Their posts are not from one specific individual, but often is an amalgamation from all 13 members. A close inspection of their various postings shows multiple writing styles. Thus, “Sorcha Faal” is not one, single individual.
Sep. 25, 2011: Steve Beckow on “Sorcha Faal”
In the last analysis, I personally think that “Sorcha Faal” is a CIA operation designed to make opponents of the elite/cabal/military-industrial complex look careless and unbelievable. And all too often we seem more than willing to lend “her” a hand.
If you read a story that sounds frightening, outrageous, or alarming, check it out first before passing it along.
This one source of information alone – Sorcha Faal – has done more damage to lightworkers’ attempts to know what’s really happening in the world than any other source I can think of – definitely someone’s secret weapon.
Don’t lend “her” a hand. Be discerning.
Sorcha Faal Official Website Lists Itself as an “Order”
“Conspiracy theorists concentrate their time on transmuting the "base matter" of current events, official stories, propaganda and public relations into the gleaming golden truth buried within. They do this through the very right-brained activity of uncovering and inventing connections between disparate elements.
The Most Critical Books Published By The Order Of The Sorcha Faal You Should Own:
Code Red: The Coming Destruction of the United States by David Booth
Dirty, Filthy, Christians by David Booth (Alleges he died in 2009)
To the reasons you have not been allowed to know about the true discovery of America, and your own true history, is now set forth in David Booth’s monumental book “Dirty, Filthy Christians”: Treatise On The Most Dangerous Death Cult In Human History, which has taken him over 30 years to write at such a personal cost that even as these words are being written he remains incapacitated by a recent heart attack and stroke that is bringing his once vibrant life to its Earthly end.
It cannot be overstated that the life’s work of David Booth could only have been accomplished by his vast family connections which have protected him throughout these past 30 years from those forces which seek to keep truth of our existence from all humanity, but which in 2004 Mr. Booth began to reveal with his book Code Red: The Coming Destruction Of The United States
and which in the very headlines of today anyone who wants to can see is coming to pass exactly as he said it would.
In this, Mr. Booth’s last book, and the culmination of his devotion to the truth at all personal costs, you will learn the honest and horrific truth about the origins of the Christian Death Cult and how for the past 1,000 years the deception, and tactics, of this death cult have used an imaginary historical religious figures named Jesus Christ to create our present World which now, and deliberately, stands upon the brink of a destruction so total that nearly all of humanity will be exterminated.
“Brief History of the Order of Sorcha Faal”
The Order of Sorcha Faal was established in 588 (BCE) in Tara, County Meath, Ireland, and claim as their Founder the oldest daughter of King Zedekiah, Tamar Tephi.
The name, Sorcha Faal, comes from the ancient Gaeilge branch of the Goidelic languages of Ireland and has the meaning of: Sorcha: She Who Brings Light Faal: the Dark and Barren Place
The Order of Sorcha Faal comprises 18 Monasteries in Ireland, Russia, Egypt, Lebanon, and the United States….
Our Order has always striven to provide to this World that Light needed to dispel the myths inherent in Darkness, but which without we could never see the truest balance between the two.”
June 30, 2008: Who Is Sorcha Faal?
Whereas disinformation had a limited impact prior to the internet, we are now overloaded with information today, some good, some bad and most dangerously, some mixed together.
I would be very careful not to act precipitously upon any information presented by Sorcha Faal.
As relates to David Booth, there are some who believe that Sorcha Faal is actually David Booth.
There are a number of sources of information on him (unfortunately none can be totally relied upon as they are most likely CIA disinformation ops themselves) which suggest that Booth's book “Code Red: The Coming Destruction of the United States 2004 was plagiarized.
Perhaps the best explanation comes from http://loveforlife.com.au/node/4358
“Having been booked on Coast To Coast on Thursday 13th March to talk about Booth's so called meeting with Sister Lucia, witness to the Miracles of Fatima in 1917 Booth refused to elaborate.
Both men would only discuss the dream Booth had already talked about on his last appearance on Coast on 23rd February.
Once again they told how 97% of the Earth's population would die in September 2004 yet they were still trying to market their books and videos. The interview was promptly and politely cut short.”
July 26: Harvey Weinstein Calls for Movie Violence Summit
Harvey Weinstein — the man behind some of the most violent movies to ever hit the big screen — says it's time for Hollywood to address how violence in movies influences people.
Speaking to The Huffington Post
, Weinstein called for a filmmaker summit in the wake of last week's theater shooting in Aurora, Colo., that left at least a dozen dead and 58 wounded.
"I think as filmmakers we should sit down — the Marty Scorseses, the Quentin Tarantinos and hopefully all of us who deal in violence in movies — and discuss our role in that," Weinstein said.
But Weinstein — an avid supporter of President Obama — suggested the No. 1 culprit is the lack of gun control and said it is time for politicians to "put up or shut up" on the issue….
The level of mayhem in these films hasn't gone unnoticed by Weinstein.
"It's a question that I wrestle with all the time. I've been involved with violent movies, and then I've said at a certain point, 'I can't take it anymore. Please cut it.' You know, you've got to respect the filmmaker, and it's a really tough issue. My heart goes out to those kids and those families," Weinstein said later in the interview.
"Violence on the screen has increased tenfold. It's almost pornographic. In fact, it is pornographic. Video games are violent, too. It's all out of control. I can see where it would drive somebody crazy," Bogdanovich said.

July 27: Elizabeth Warren on LIBOR: “Go Get ‘Em”
WASHINGTON — Now that the details of the global Libor interest-rate scandal are beginning to emerge more fully, the question becomes what, if anything, Congress will do to stand up to the banks, Elizabeth Warren said in an interview with The Huffington Post.
"Libor exposes rot at the core of the banking system. The real question now for me, is whether Congress will stand up," Warren said, "or if the banks will keep them silent."
"Go get 'em," she said.
July 27: Judge Prevents Release of Holmes School Records
Much speculation surrounding the 24-year-old's possible motive in gunning down 12 people and wounding 58 more at a screening of Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises," has focused on his time studying neuroscience at the school.
School documents are usually available under the Colorado Open Records Act, but District Court Judge William Silvester cited a provision that bars the public from viewing open records "prohibited by … the order of any court."
His order was signed on Monday but released Thursday.
University officials said Holmes was in the process of withdrawing from the graduate program, but had not completed the necessary paperwork.
At the request of Holmes's attorneys, Silvester also reinforced an earlier order barring officials of the district attorney's office and law enforcement officials from releasing information about the case before the trial.
July 27: 21 Media Organizations Seek to Unseal Holmes Court Records
DENVER — A group of 21 news organizations is asking a judge to reverse his order sealing court records in the case against James Holmes, the man accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 in a Colorado movie theater.
The motion was filed Friday in Arapahoe County District Court.
Judge William Blair Sylvester issued an order July 20, the day of the shooting, to keep the documents secret without stating the reason. The news organizations say the order means even a complete list of court filings is kept secret.
The news organizations include The Associated Press, The Denver Post, three other newspapers, four Denver television stations, six broadcast networks and two newspaper groups.
A spokeswoman for the district attorney's office declined to comment. Holmes' attorneys didn't immediately return a call.
July 27: Here’s the Opening Sequence NBC Does Not Want You to See
July 27: Dollar Vigilante on Olympic Opening Ceremonies
If you are like me you just finished watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympic games in London.
Of course, our American friends, who live in the land of the free, couldn't watch it live due to the fascist media monopoly and federal government rules making it so they have no options for what they want to see and when and instead have to watch it when NBC says they can make the most money… later tonight.
In this case, though, you may have been lucky if you missed it… that was the strangest, darkest most satanic opening ceremonies I've ever seen.
The entire stadium is encircled with the illuminati pyramid with the all seeing eye symbol and most of the ceremonies included fire, zombies, ghouls and the grim reaper. It looked and felt like an occult funeral…
I'm not sure what all this imagery is supposed to tell us but it looks like the powers that be are in a nasty mood this year. I just kept wondering when the false flag dirty bomb would be set off. I'm very happy to be far away from London this summer.
July 28: Olympic Opening Ceremony Highlights – No Obvious Illuminati Symbols Given in This Post
July 28: Analysis of Opening Ceremony
July 28: Opening Ceremony of London Olympics 2012
The next section (“Second to the right, and straight on till morning”) was probably the most sinister.
Despite being a “celebration” of the NHS (represented by Great Ormond Street Hospital and loads of giant beds filled with sleeping children in hospital), it quickly descended into a dark invocation of goblins and weird creatures, giant grim reapers and a child catcher (as in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”).
The scene was “conjured” by JK Rowling who read from the esoterically important children’s novel “Peter Pan” and accompanied by Mike Oldfield’s “Tubular Bells” – a theme now associated with the subliminally saturated horror film “The Exorcist”.
Children were hoisted aloft in their beds, to the strains of screams and maniacal laughter.
The nurses swayed hypnotically in a trance state, occasionally forming esoteric hand signals. The scene came to a close as dozens of “Mary Poppins” flew by umbrella into the stadium to “rescue” the children…
July 28: Dollar Vigilante on Opening Ceremony Grim Reaper
THE OLYMPIC OCCULT CEREMONIES
But, let's not talk about Acapulco today. I am actually still trying to come to terms with what I saw yesterday during the Olympics opening ceremonies!
The great majority of it was fire, smoke, destruction, zombies, the grim reaper and ritualistic dancing and drumming… the drumming coming from a woman dressed like a witch, for some reason….
It is hard to pick which part from the opening ceremonies was the most disturbing but if I had to pick one, I'd pick the scene with literally hundreds of sick children in hospital beds getting chased around by ghouls as they dance around a giant mummified baby.
One of the commentators, upon seeing this scene, exclaimed, "I really like the use of children so far in this."
I was watching the Canadian feed which we can get via satellite down in Mexico… plus it wasn't aired live in the US.
The announcers went all gaga over this horrific scene, stating how "proud Britons are of the National Health Service (NHS)", which is what this scene was theoretically about.
It was almost like watching the Olympics in the Soviet Union and watching them celebrate their socialist, centrally planned system… by using imagery of death and destruction… which is probably a good way to describe it!
July 28: At Least Three Banks Central to LIBOR Rigging
(Reuters) – New details from court documents and sources close to the Libor scandal investigation suggest that groups of traders working at three major European banks were heavily involved in rigging global benchmark interest rates.
Some of those traders, including one who used to work at Barclays Plc in New York, still have senior positions on Wall Street trading desks.
Until now, most of the attention has involved traders at Barclays, which last month reached a $453 million settlement with U.S. and UK authorities for its role in the manipulation of rates.
Now, it is becoming clear that traders from at least two other banks – UK-based Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and Switzerland's UBS AG – played a central role.
July 29: NBC Panicks, Does Not Air Death-Themed Opening Sequence
NEW YORK — The choreographer of a somber segment in the London Olympics opening ceremony said Saturday he's disappointed that NBC decided not to show it to an American audience.
Spectators were asked to display photos of loved ones who could not be there during the segment. The music, a hymn called "Abide With Me," was described in the ceremony's program as an "honest expression of the fear of approaching death."
NBC producers did not air it, instead showing American viewers Ryan Seacrest's interview with swimmer Michael Phelps….
The ceremony's program describes the performance as dramatizing "the struggle between life and death using such powerful images of mortality as dust and the setting sun."
Some in the British press have interpreted the segment as being a tribute to victims of bomb attacks in July 2005 that killed 52 commuters and four suicide bombers on London's transit network.
During the BBC live coverage of the ceremony, commentator Hazel Irvine made the connection while the dance was taking place: "The excitement of that moment in Singapore seven years ago when London won the games was tempered with great sorrow the very next day," when the terror attacks took place, she said.
NBC said it had no indication that the segment was a reference to the terrorist attacks.
Although in many places the ceremony was aired in full, NBC aired it on a tape-delayed basis and made editing changes. The network said there are often such production decisions when showing a taped version of a ceremony.
"Our program is tailored for the U.S. television audience," said NBC Sports spokesman Greg Hughes. "It's a credit to (ceremony director) Danny Boyle that it required so little editing."
July 29: Occult Symbols and Demons at the London Olympics
Whenever there is an opportunity for PUBLICLY FUNDED ceremonies, the Freemasons come a thither and hither – influencing the staging, themes, music and spectacle, so as to subliminally project into the minds of billions of TV viewers their sordid view of world history….
In exchange for the promise of 'riches' and 'treasures', these demons would demand a SOUL or a SACRIFICE of a young person – some demanded boys and girls – some demons demand BABIES…
These demons have been portrayed in several publicly funded ceremonies – and the LONDON OLYMPIC Opening Ceremony spectacle was no exception…
Of course, no spirit can be released from a body and then enter a tog-o-war between the forces of Heaven and Hell without there first being DEATH…
And the Olympic Opening Ceremony provided us with a spectacle of an 80 feet high GRIM REAPER, who stood poised as he poached children's souls directly from dozens of hospital beds….
They now want utter DESTRUCTION and CHAOS, WARFARE, PLAGUE and POVERTY to overcome mankind so that the spirits of all of us can be fed upon by the hoards of demons in the lower astral realms…
And THAT is what the symbolism of the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics was REALLY all about.
July 29: RBS Faces Huge LIBOR Fine
The boss of the Royal Bank of Scotland
is warning the bank faces a further hit to its reputation – and a huge fine – from the Libor
scandal, which has engulfed Barclays
and caused a fresh wave of anger against bankers.
While the £290m fine slapped on Barclays has helped to distract from the computer meltdown at RBS, which prevented up to 13m customers accessing their accounts for up to a month, Stephen Hester
, RBS's chief executive, said the rate-rigging scandal was bad for the entire industry.
"RBS is one of the banks tied up in Libor. We'll have our day in that particular spotlight as well," Hester said in an interview with the Guardian. He did not know the size of the RBS fine but said that the investigation by the Financial Services Authority was "in process".
July 30: India’s Power Grid Crashes, Affecting 370M People
[DW: Article was changed and updated on same link.]
While the midsummer outage was unique in its reach – it hit 370 million people, more than the population of the United States and Canada combined – its impact was softened by Indians' familiarity with almost daily blackouts of varying duration.
Hospitals and major businesses have backup generators that seamlessly kick in during power cuts, and upscale homes are hooked to backup systems powered by truck batteries.
July 30: HSBC To Pay More Than 2 Billion in Penalties
LONDON, July 30 (Reuters) – HSBC's boss said on Monday revelations of lax anti-money laundering controls had been "shameful and embarrassing" for Europe's biggest bank, and may force it to pay out well over $2 billion for those flaws and in compensation for UK mis-selling.
HSBC set aside $700 million to cover fines and other costs for an anti-money laundering scandal, after a U.S. Senate report criticised it this month for letting clients shift funds from dangerous and secretive countries, notably Mexico.
The ultimate cost could be "significantly higher", the bank's Chief Executive Stuart Gulliver said.
"What happened in Mexico and the U.S. is shameful, it's embarrassing, it's very painful for all of us in the firm," Gulliver told reporters on a conference call.
"We need to execute on the compliance changes and then prove ourselves worthy and rebuild this over a number of years. There are no quick and easy fixes," he said.
The Senate report criticised a "pervasively polluted" culture at the bank and said HSBC's Mexican operations had moved $7 billion into its U.S. operations between 2007 and 2008….
HSBC also set aside another $1.3 billion to compensate British customers for mis-selling loan insurance to individuals and interest rate hedging products to small businesses.
It is also one of more than a dozen banks under scrutiny in a global interest rate-rigging scandal that has rocked the sector and further damaged the reputation of bankers following criticism of their culture and standards.
"It's very unfortunate and deeply concerning that even the banks considered more secure such as HSBC are so seriously at risk," said a
top 30 investor in HSBC.
"And the news is still coming out – we have yet to see the impact, if any, of the Libor investigation and HSBC's role in that. It's hard to see how much more bad news the markets can take," said the investor, who asked not to be named….
Gulliver said that as a contributor to Libor and its euro zone equivalent Euribor, HSBC was cooperating with regulators with their investigation. However, it was far too early to say what the outcome would be or to estimate the potential cost for the bank….
"The firm clearly lost its way in this regard and it's right that we apologise," he said. "Colleagues internally have been aware that this is the backdrop of why we had to change the firm."
July 30: 31 Economic Indicators Are Breaking Down
The concave upwards dome of optimism that for many market participants dates all the way back to the 1950’s is in the process of being demolished, just like the City of Pittsburgh’s iconic Civic Arena.
The apex of the dome occurred in the early 1980’s when manufacturing was still a significant force in the economy, before technology had given Corporate America the ability to off-shore, outsource and automate every high paying job that formed the backbone of the middle class.
The charts in this series all depict different aspects of the economic inflection point. Most of the charts are presented in year over year percent change format to illustrate how the nominal highs that many indexes have made recently have been generated by steadily decreasing rates of growth.
In 2008 decades of expansion flipped to contraction as growth rates collapsed to unprecedented levels. In technical terms the housing and banking crash that occurred four years ago was a breakdown where long term growth support levels utterly failed to prevent a sharp drop on the charts.
The deflationary drop did happen; the central banks flooded the system with cash, and a temporary reflation of the system was accomplished.
But the fact remains that the manufacturing jobs are gone for good, and without a thriving and reproducing middle class the economy will never be able to maintain a steady rate of expansion.
So optimistic expansion becomes pessimistic contraction, and the point at which that happens is the inflection point. As we say in Pittsburgh, that’s where we’re at.
July 30: HSBC Sets Aside 2B For Penalties – 4th Update
July 30: Iran Tries 39 Bankers for Fraud, Sentences Four to Death
(Reuters) – An Iranian court has sentenced four people to death for their roles in a billion-dollar banking fraud scandal that forced bank executives out of their jobs and tainted the government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, state media reported on Monday.
The embezzlement case, discovered in September 2011, revolved around forged documents allegedly used by the directors of an Iranian investment company to secure loans totaling $2.6 billion to buy state-owned enterprises.
Thirty-nine people were tried for their involvement in the fraud.
"We are typing their sentences now and according to the sentence that was issued, four of the accused in this case were sentenced to death," judiciary spokesman Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei told the IRNA state news agency.
He did not name the individuals sentenced to death.
Two others were sentenced to life imprisonment and others received sentences ranging from 25 years and down, Mohseni-Ejei was quoted as saying.
July 30: India’s Largest Network Sues Nielsen for Billions Over Manipulating TV Ratings
New Delhi Television Limited, India's oldest and largest news network, has lobbed a legal grenade at The Nielsen Co.
In a 194-page lawsuit filed in New York court late last week, NDTV accuses Nielsen of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act by manipulating viewership data in favor of channels that are willing to provide bribes to its officials.
According to NDTV, rampant manipulation of viewership data has been going on for eight years, and when presented with evidence earlier this year, top executives at Nielsen pledged to make changes. But the Indian news giant says these promises have been false ones.
The Indian company is now seeking billions of dollars in damages from Nielsen, looking to punish its top corporate officers and demanding that Nielsen essentially be kicked out of the country.
The lawsuit contains merely allegations against the venerable ratings research company that operates in more than 100 countries, earns more than $5 billion a year and has been around since 1923.
But if proved, they could be very serious. A Nielsen spokesperson said the company "has a longstanding policy of not commenting on pending legal matters."….
Nielsen, which formerly owned The Hollywood Reporter
, is described as a company that is now owned by "sponsors" — private-equity firms that include KKR, The Blackstone Group, The Carlyle Group, Thomas H. Lee Partners, Alpinvest Partners, Hellman & Friedman and Centerview Partners.
These firms are said to be executing an "exit strategy" out of the Nielsen business and, as a result, have ordered Nielsen directors and CEO David Calhoun to make cost-cutting and cost-avoidance measures to maintain their share price in the short term.
As a result, NDTV says that Nielsen's officers have been "recklessly disregarding" their responsibilities to laws and their customers and that the cost-cutting measures have been one of the main reasons behind manipulated TV viewership data….
Specifically, the results of viewership data are alleged to be based on a very small number, just 8,000 households.
And because of the small sample size and alleged lack of security protocols, corruption is said to have blossomed in a country where "politicians also own cable networks" and "PeopleMeters have been installed at the residences of government officials, where tampering of the data also takes place."….
NDTV is now demanding significant damages: at least $810 million for fraud, at least $580 million for negligence and hundreds of millions more for a range of causes of action including tortious interference and breach of fiduciary duty.
The plaintiff is also going after Nielsen's top officers like Calhoun for violation of the Dutch Corporate Governance Code. (Nielsen is based in the Netherlands.)….
If that's not enough, the complaint (which can be read on the following page) suggests that similar bad activity is happening elsewhere — in Florida, Turkey and the Philippines.
July 31: Second India Blackout Cuts Power to 670M
(Reuters) – Grids supplying electricity to half of India's 1.2 billion people collapsed on Tuesday, trapping coal miners, stranding train travellers and plunging hospitals into darkness in the second major blackout in as many days.
Stretching from Assam, near China
, to the Himalayas and the northwestern deserts of Rajasthan, the outage was the worst to hit India in more than a decade and embarrassed the government, which has failed to build up enough power capacity to meet soaring demand.
"Even before we could figure out the reason for yesterday's failure, we had more grid failures today," said R. N. Nayak, chairman of the state-run Power Grid Corporation.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has vowed to fast-track stalled power and infrastructure projects as well as introduce free market reforms aimed at reviving India's flagging economy. But he has drawn fire for dragging his feet.
By the afternoon rush-hour, only about 40 percent of power was back up. Electricity had not been restored to all of the sweltering capital, New Delhi, and streets were clogged with commuters trying to get home.
"It's certainly shameful. Power is a very basic amenity and situations like these should not occur," said Unnayan Amitabh, 19, an intern with HSBC bank in New Delhi, as he was giving up on the underground train system and flagging down an auto-rickshaw to get home.
"They talk about big ticket reforms but can't get something as essential as power supply right."
July 31: Jon Stewart Blasts NBC’s Olympics Editing
Just lie back and think of England, NBC.
The official network of the Olympics hasn't been winning any medals in the public-opinion events, that's for sure. On Monday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart took issue with NBC's decision not to air
a tribute to the 2005 London subway bombings during the Olympics opening ceremony.
While international audiences tuning into the event enjoyed a stirring homage to the 52 lives lost in the attack, American viewers' broadcast cut to a Ryan Seacrest interview with swimmer Michael Phelps.
"Are you kidding?" Stewart joked. "NBC — the network that, to commemorate 9/11, actually re-runs 9/11 — you wouldn't air a six minute tribute to the rest of the world's terrorist victims? Because the world's most overexposed land-based mammal had a chance to speak to the world's most overexposed water-based mammal."

Even the mainstream pundits were blown away. The public didn’t know WTF to make of it. The entire ceremony had to be explained away as a leftist statement of some sort.
Then they just shut up about it.
But not alternative media. We saw the occult Olympic ceremony for what it was. As is always the case.
Big ass bullshit. Nothing more than mindspell madness to perpetrate their debasing social insanity.
July 31: Deutsche Bank Admits LIBOR Involvement
Germany's biggest bank, Deutsche Bank
, prepared the ground for regulatory action in the Libor
rigging scandal by admitting that a "limited number" of its staff had been involved.
As Swiss bank UBS
insisted it was not at the centre of the interest rate debacle, Deutsche said "action had been taken accordingly" against those staff found to have been involved.
UBS, as the first bank to reveal the existence of investigations into Libor, is receiving leniency for co-operating with inquiries.
Deutsche's supervisory board head Paul Achleitner insisted in a letter to staff that "no current or former member of the management board had any inappropriate involvement".
Deutsche's admission follows a warning by Royal Bank of Scotland
that it too expects to be drawn into the Libor debacle in the wake of the £290m fine slapped on Barclays
. Barclays refused to comment on reports that its offices in Milan had been raided in connection with the investigations.

Aug. 1: Suspicious, Sudden High-Volume Stock Activity
Electronic trading firm Knight Capital Group said Wednesday that a "technology issue'' in its market-making unit had affected the routing of shares of about 150 stocks to the New York Stock Exchange, where abnormal volatility roiled the markets in early trading….
Heavy computer-based trading at the market open caused several stocks to be halted and prompted reviews on trades in scores more….
Several market participants said the source of the problem may have been large orders meant to be filled throughout the day that were instead executed in a shorter time frame, with some saying it was handled in the first 15 minutes of trading….
"That has disrupted all the normal activities — stocks are moving all over the place, they are weird, they are trading like millions of shares, 100 shares at a time, so something went haywire somewhere,'' said Stephen Massocca, managing director, Wedbush Morgan in San Francisco.
"It appears to be dozens if not hundreds of stocks that have (seen) extremely high volume and extremely rapid movement,'' said Joe
Saluzzi, co-manager of trading at Themis Trading in Chatham, New Jersey.
Aug. 1: Knight Capital Trading Glitches Strike Wall Street [Dark Knight Connection?]
Wall Street was hit by a messy opening on Wednesday due to technology glitches at Knight Capital Group (KCG
: 8.16, -2.17, -21.01%), causing confusion and shares of the market maker to plunge more than 20%.
The Securities and Exchange Commission is talking to the New York Stock Exchange over erroneous Knight Capital trades, sources told FOX Business's Charles Gasparino. The SEC and NYSE are examining possible algorithm mishaps and looking into a possible “fat finger” trading error, while Knight told Gasparino it is looking into the trading problems.
The trading issues prompted Knight Capital to instruct clients to route their trades elsewhere.
“The algos went nuts this morning,” said Joe Saluzzi, co-head of trading at Themis Trading, referring to computer-generated algorithms that control much of equity trading. “Someone has a major, major problem on their hands.”
In a statement, Jersey City, N.J.-based Knight Capital said an initial review "indicates that a technology issue occurred in the company's market-making unit related to the routing of shares" of about 150 NYSE-listed shares. Knight noted that its over the counter securities and trading in other business were not affected.
Wall Street sent shares of Knight Capital plummeting to their lowest level since the summer of 2005 as speculation mounted that the market maker could be on the hook for legal damages if trading glitches forced trades to be executed at unwanted prices….
NYSE Euronext’s (NYX
: 25.04, -0.44, -1.73%) Big Board said it is reviewing trades on 148 stocks between the market open at 9:30 a.m. ET and 10:15 a.m. ET. NYSE said it will provide an update “shortly” on these views. The NYSE declined to comment on the trading issues specifically.
The turbulent open on Wall Street created a trading halt in a slew of stocks listed on the Big Board, including Molycorp (MCP
: 16.98, -0.44, -2.53%), Corelogic (CLGX
: 23.05, +0.05, +0.22%), China Cord Blood (CO
: 2.59, +0.12, +4.86%), Kronos Worldwide (KRO
: 17.76, +0.84, +4.96%) and Trinity Industries (TRN
: 28.78, +0.78, +2.79%).
A cluster of other stocks were struck by heavy volatility, including Dole Food (DOLE
: 11.95, +0.18, +1.53%), RadioShack (RSH
: 2.90, -0.02, -0.52%) and Quicksilver Resources (KWK
: 4.67, +0.15, +3.32%)….
Underscoring the trading issues, Saluzzi pointed to surge in volume of Wells Fargo Capital IX (JWF
: 25.17, -0.39, -1.53%), preferred shares of the San Francisco banking giant.
“It usually never trades. It traded four million shares!” said Saluzzi.
The volatility comes on a high-profile day for Wall Street, which is anxiously awaiting a pivotal decision from the Federal Reserve on whether or not to provide further monetary stimulus to juice the sagging U.S. economy.
Why The Fed Could Destroy Your Wealth on August 1st [Doom and Gloom]
Noted expert Peter Schiff says the U.S. economy is on the verge of an economic collapse worse than 2008 and is warning investors to take immediate steps to protect themselves.
In a gripping interview on Yahoo Finance, Schiff warns that while the Fed's moves could "artificially" bolster the economy – and bring investors false hope that things are turning around – the truth is that the government will only be delaying the "Day of Reckoning."
"If the Fed ultimately comes through with QE3… it won't strengthen the economy, but it will weaken the dollar," Schiff said, noting that Bernanke's policies will eventually lead to a Greek style debilitating sovereign debt crisis where the dollar plunges and consumer prices and interest rates spike.
"We have a much bigger collapse coming, not just the markets, but of the economy. It's like what you're seeing in Europe right now only worse," Schiff said.
The collapse could be set in motion as early as August 1st. That's the day that Fed chairman Ben Bernanke gives his annual remarks from Jackson Hole, Wyoming where many analysts expect Bernanke will announce plans for QE3 – and the next phase of money printing begins.
He goes on to say that things will get truly ugly when we hit our fiscal cliff and have to slash government spending across the board.
"People on entitlements like Social Security and Medicare… they're not going to get the benefits they've been promised. Government workers are going to have to take pay cuts… banks are going to fail… people are going to lose money, not just investors but depositors. The housing market is going to fall again."
And Schiff isn't the only expert warning about the U.S. economy's dire predicament.
A group of prominent scientists, economists and geopolitical experts have uncovered an emerging pattern… one they believe could soon hasten an American economic catastrophe – and a radical hit to the wealth and financial security of millions of Americans.
Editor's note: Germany's military held a secret investigation into this emerging pattern and concluded it could lead to "political
instability and extremism." Click here to view this controversial investigation.
Aug. 1: A “Superpower” That Couldn’t Keep the Lights On [Attack Piece]
India’s policymakers have been fixated with pursuing major strategic ambitions with the hopes of one day becoming a superpower. The country has tripled its defense expenditure over the last decade to become one of the top-ten military spenders
It has been lobbying for a permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council and it has been trying to raise its profile globally through public diplomacy and events such as the Commonwealth Games.
In 2010, the London School of Economics
argued in a report that despite India’s impressive rise, the country shouldn’t get carried away and pursue global ambitions, rather it should focus on solving its deep socio-economic problems.
“The bright lights of great power diplomacy may serve only to distract from the pressing requirements of India’s domestic development, which to date has neither locked in its successes nor laid out a sustainable path for the future,” the report said.
Yet, the government has failed to pursue economic reforms and has flip-flopped on key policies such as letting foreign supermarket chains enter the country. That has hurt sentiment among foreign investors, who for many years were willing to fund India’s large trade deficit….
The growth outlook has darkened so much that Ruchir Sharma, the head of emerging markets at Morgan Stanley and the author of a new book called Breakout Nations, sees only a 50 percent possibility of India regaining its fast growth trajectory.
India’s Prime Minister seemed to recognize the urgency when he took over the finance minister
’s post last month and assured investors he would pursue reforms.
But Taimur Baig, chief economist at Deutsche Bank told CNBC earlier this month: “the rhetoric needs to be followed with concrete actions expeditiously as investors are unlikely to give policy makers a prolonged period of benefit of doubt.”
Without those urgent reforms, India may finally have to turn the lights off on its lofty ambitions of superpower status.

August 1: Crimes of the Big Banks: Worse Than Your Wildest Imagination
Preface: Not all banks are criminal enterprises. The wrongdoing of a particular bank cannot be attributed to other banks without proof. But – as documented below – many of the biggest banks have engaged in unimaginably bad behavior.
Here are just some of the improprieties by big banks:
- Engaging in mafia-style big-rigging fraud against local governments. See this, this and this
- Shaving money off of virtually every pension transaction they handled over the course of decades, stealing collectively billions of dollars from pensions worldwide. Details here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here
- Pledging the same mortgage multiple times to different buyers. See this, this, this, this and this. This would be like selling your car, and collecting money from 10 different buyers for the same car
- Committing massive fraud in an $800 trillion dollar market which effects everything from mortgages, student loans, small business loans and city financing
- Pushing investments which they knew were terrible, and then betting against the same investments to make money for themselves. See this, this, this, this and this
- Engaging in unlawful “Wash Trades” to manipulate asset prices. See this, this and this
- Participating in various Ponzi schemes. See this, this and this
- Bribing and bullying ratings agencies to inflate ratings on their risky investments
Indeed, one of the world’s top fraud experts – professor of law and economics, and former senior S&L regulator Bill Black – says that most financial fraud is “control fraud”, where the people who own the banks are the ones who implement systemic fraud. See this
But at least the big banks do good things for society, like loaning money to Main Street, right?
- The big banks have slashed lending since they were bailed out by taxpayers … while smaller banks have increased lending. See this, this and this
We can almost understand why Thomas Jefferson warned
And I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies ….
Banks have done more injury to religion, morality, tranquillity, prosperity, and even wealth of the nation than they have done or ever will do good.
The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the people versus the banks.
Aug. 2: India Will Launch Mars Mission in 2013
India plans to launch a mission to Mars next year, putting an orbital probe around the red planet to study its climate and geology, top space department officials said on Thursday.
The mission would mark another step in India's ambitious space programme, which envisages the Asian giant's first manned mission in 2016.
"We will embark on the Mars mission after the Department of Science gives the green signal and decides the schedule early next year," Deviprasad Karnik, director of the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) told AFP.
A 320-tonne Indian Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle rocket will be used to carry the orbiter spaceship, blasting off from the ISRO launch site at Sriharikota in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh.
Another senior official at ISRO, requesting anonymity, estimated the cost of the mission at 4.0-5.0 billion rupees (£45-58 million).

Aug. 2: Fed’s Gold Being Audited by US Treasury (Deceiving Readers)
When we started reading the LA Times
article reporting that "the federal government has quietly been completing an audit of U.S. gold stored at the New York Fed" we couldn't help but wonder when the gotcha
moment would appear.
It was about 15 paragraphs in that we stumbled upon what we were waiting for: "The process involved about half a dozen employees of the Mint, the Treasury inspector general's office and the New York Fed. It was monitored by employees of the Government Accountability Office, Congress' investigative arm."

The top five outside spending groups on presidential election ads have reported less than 1% of their spending to the Federal Election Commission, according to a new report
by national research and advocacy organizations Dēmos and US PIRG.
Multiple types of outside spending groups are playing an even larger and more secretive role in the 2012 election cycle than previously thought or estimated….
“Dark money” groups actually outspent Super PACs in the 2010 cycle by a substantial marginand are set to have an even greater effect on this year’s elections, according to the report, which pooled data from the FEC and secondary sources.
The report finds:
- When all types of outside spending on television ads related to the presidential race are taken into account, 50% the spending has been by “dark money” groups that do not disclose their donors.
- The top 5 “dark money” groups spent $53.0 million on TV ads related to the presidential race alone through July 1, but reported only $420,920 in spending on all races through June 30th to the FEC. This means that these groups are currently reporting less than 1% of their spending.
- The top 5 outside spending groups have accounted for 58.5% of all reported outside spending in the 2012 cycle.
- More than half (57.1%) of the $230 million raised by Super PACs from individuals came from just 47 people giving at least $1 million. Just over 1,000 donors (or 0.00035% of the population) giving $10,000 or more were responsible for 94% of this fundraising.
- Sheldon and Miriam Adelson have given a combined $36.3 million to Super PACs in the 2012 cycle. It would take more than 321,000 average American families donating an equivalent share of their wealth to match the Adelsons’ giving.
The report finds that the combined spending of Super PACs, "dark money" groups, and other forms of outside political spending is far greater and more secretive than imagined.
Aug. 2: All US Presidents Related to British Royalty, Except One
Paso Robles, CA — Their political party lines maybe different but one thing United States presidents could share is their family line.
A young girl in California has put together a Presidential Family Tree. Twelve-year-old BridgeAnne d'Avignon found that all the presidents but one are related to King John of England through a common ancestor.
"They are all cousins and all grandsons of John Lackland," BridgeAnne told KCOY News. The girl searched more than a half million names for months. She started with George Washington, then traced both the male and female family lines to make the connection.
KCOY reports that before this, historians were only able to link 22 presidential family trees.
The teen also found out that she is the 18th cousin of President Barack Obama. She even wrote him a letter to let him know.
The only president not linked to King John: the eight president, Martin Van Buren.
Aug. 3: NBC Forced to Apologize Showing Monkey in Gymnastic Win
NBC has become the centre of a race storm after airing an ad featuring a monkey performing gymnastics, right after showing the performance of Gabby Douglas, the first African-American to win Olympic gold.
The network has since apologised for the advert's poor timing, explaining: 'No offense was intended.'
The controversy ignited as sportscaster Bob Costas wrapped his analysis of her incredible routine during the all-around competition last night.
Costas said: 'There are some African American girls out there who tonight are saying to themselves: "Hey, I’d like to try that too." More from London in a moment.'
The broadcast then went to a commercial break, showing an advertisement featuring a monkey wearing a gymnastics uniform and performing a rings gymnastics event.
The unintentional, but poorly-timed ad was for Animal Practice, an upcoming NBC sitcom.

BOSTON (AP) — A child pornography investigation that began in Massachusetts has led to the arrests of 43 men in seven countries and identified more than 140 child victims.
Those arrested include a children's puppeteer in Florida, a hotel manager in Massachusetts and a day care worker in the Netherlands.
A stuffed toy bunny helped investigators crack the case.
The bunny had been seen in a photo of a distraught 18-month-old boy. Investigators have discovered that the bunny was a character in a children's book popular in the Netherlands.
From there, they zeroed in on Robert Mikelsons of Amsterdam. He has confessed to molesting more than 80 children.
Aug. 4: NY Fed Undergoes First Gold Audit
A massive trove of gold kept under lock and key five stories below Manhattan at the New York Federal Reserve has been undergoing its first audit in history. It could put conspiracy theories – for example, that the gold is a sham – to sleep for good.
According to the official record, the US government keeps billions of dollars in gold stored beneath the New York Fed's Italian Renaissance fortress around the block from Wall Street.
But conspiracy theorists claim that the gold stock may have been stolen years back in a dramatic caper, that it's been used for backdoor deals with foreign governments, or even that it's been removed and replaced with gold-painted metal bars.

Aug. 6: Sikh Temple Shooter ID’ed as US Military Psy-Ops Veteran
OAK CREEK, Wis. (CBSDC/AP)
— Authorities tell CBS News
that the shooter behind the deadly massacre at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin Sunday has been identified as 40-year-old Wade Michael Page.
Page previously served in the U.S. military, but was no longer on active duty, sources tell CBS News.
CBS News reports that Page enlisted in the Army in April 1992 and was given a less-than-honorable discharge in October 1998. He was last stationed in Fort Bragg, N.C., serving in the psychological operations unit.
Sunday’s shooting outside the temple in suburban Milwaukee left seven dead, including the suspect, and three others critically wounded in what police called an act of domestic terrorism.
Satpal Kaleka, wife of the temple’s president, Satwant Singh Kaleka, was in the front room and saw the gunman enter the temple, according to Harpreet Singh, their nephew.
“He did not speak, he just began shooting,” said Singh, relaying a description of the attack from Satpal Kaleka.
Kaleka said the 6-foot-tall bald white man — who worshippers said they had never before seen at the temple — seemed like he had a purpose and knew where he was going.
Late Sunday, the investigation appeared to move beyond the temple as police, federal agents and the county sheriff’s bomb squad swarmed a neighborhood in nearby Cudahy, evacuated several homes and searched a duplex. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agent Tom Ahern said warrants were being served at the gunman’s home.
Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards said police expected to release more information Monday. He said the FBI will lead the investigation because the shootings are being treated as domestic terrorism, or an attack that originated inside the U.S.
“While the FBI is investigating whether this matter might be an act of domestic terrorism, no motive has been determined at this time,” Teresa Carlson, Special Agent in Charge with the agency’s Milwaukee division, said in a statement Sunday night….
Even though the gunman’s motives were a mystery Sunday, Kaur said the shootings reopened wounds in a community whose members have found themselves frequent targets of hate-based attacks since Sept. 11.
“We are experiencing it as a hate crime,” she said. “Every Sikh American today is hurting, grieving and afraid.”

Aug. 6: CNN Plays “Only the Good Die Young” After Temple Shooting Discussion
Eight days after playing
the song "Stupid Girls" before a story about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, the scoring geniuses at CNN were at it again.
After coming out of a break following a long segment about the Sikh temple shootings in Wisconsin, viewers of Monday's Starting Point were treated to Billy Joel's "Only the Good Die Young" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
At 8:37 AM, substitute co-host Ali Velshi opened a segment with the breaking news from Wisconsin that the suspected Sikh temple shooter was former Army soldier Wade Michael Page.
Narinder Singh, the chairman of the board of trustees for the Sikh Coalition was then introduced to discuss the massacre and inform viewers about his religion.
After about a six minute discussion, the program cut to a commercial break. Upon return, viewers were greeted with Billy Joel:
Well, they showed you a statue, told you to pray
They built you a temple and locked you away
Ah but they never told you the price that you pay,
For the things that you might have done…
Only the good die young
That's what I said
Only the good die young
Only the good die young….
Honestly, on a day when the nation is grieving a massacre at a temple, couldn't someone at CNN notice how inappropriate this was, especially following a segment about the shootings?

Aug. 7: Oct. 23, 1994: Rothschild Betrayed Nuclear Secrets to Soviet Union [Unarchived as of 8/7]
THE LATE Lord Rothschild, scientist, think-tank head, first- class cricketer, bomb-disposal expert and MI5 agent, was a super-spy for the Russians, according to a forthcoming book.
The Fifth Man, by the Australian author Roland Perry, claims to prove that Victor Rothschild stole 'all major UK/US weapons developments in the Second World War', including biological warfare, the atomic bomb and radar.
Specifically, he alleges that Rothschild, not Klaus Fuchs, or, as is generally believed, the civil servant John Cairncross, first alerted Stalin to Allied plans to build an atom bomb using plutonium 235.
Perry also claims that Rothschild, who died in 1990, was involved 'in so many aspects of spying that he seemed like a super-agent, sabotaging every Western intelligence initiative for 20 years after the war'.
The evidence offered is largely derived from three days of interviews in Moscow with seven retired KGB officers, some identified only by initials.

MAIN SPLICE POINT
A small but vocal percentage of the people who read this will completely refuse to believe any of it until it happens — and then they will immediately insist it is a nefarious plot to enslave us all.
I do not believe this is the case. I have written this follow-up to Financial Tyranny in order to help share my perspective.
This investigation was not requested by any insiders, military groups or otherwise. In fact, they probably would have told me not to do it.
I was specifically asked NOT to go into ETs, UFOs or any cosmic subjects in the writing of Financial Tyranny. I was told to write it "for the people," not for my "fans." The investigation took months to complete.
I was then asked to write this follow-up, Divine Intervention, by a different group who I've been in contact with all along — through a series of very powerful, undeniably intense dreams and synchronicities. I chose to listen — and act accordingly.
Once I rolled up my sleeves and did the "homework" I was asked to complete, I was amazed at how much I had missed — and how well it all fit together. More than once I have been moved to tears.
This revolutionary civil and military uprising against Financial Tyranny is only being made possible through Divine Intervention — and that is also why it will succeed.
I do not wish to step on any toes or bruise any egos. Divine Intervention does not cheapen nor reduce the extraordinary risks our people are taking to rise up against Financial Tyranny — nor does it eliminate the risk of loss of life.
Nonetheless, the evidence I'm hearing from the insider circuit now is nothing short of extraordinary.
Something has changed in the "game" of international politics. Something drastic. Something irreversible.
Since just the beginning of 2012, there have now been well over 40 examples of blatant Divine Intervention — all of which seem very pointedly focused on preventing World War III from occurring.
SHARING INSIDER TESTIMONIES
I will share a few of the most dramatic examples I have heard about firsthand from my own top insiders here on the ground — which only adds to what others are revealing at this time as well.
THE UNDERGROUND BASES
Four different credible sources independently confirmed to me that elaborate, highly classified underground bases have been systematically wiped out — beginning on August 23, 2011.
As I wrote in previous articles, one event completely eliminated a critical base for Washington, DC politicians and staff — located just south of DC, in northern Virginia. This facility had elaborate security protocols in place and was believed to be invincible.
The base was loaded with the politicians' personal items. They intended to flee there after triggering events that they felt would lead to mass starvation and unrest within the United States.
This base destruction caused a very anomalous 5.4 earthquake that shook most of the entire East Coast.
The quake was at a very shallow depth and had all the hallmarks of an underground nuclear test, due to its sudden, massive magnitude with no buildup or significant aftershocks.
A similarly anomalous earthquake occurred in the Denver, Colorado area during this same timeframe. This was the result of another massive base destruction. This Colorado base was, again, of critical importance to the Old World Order.
The loss of these two bases alone was a crushing blow. They were loaded with stored food and supplies that could be moved through underground shuttle systems to various bases as needed — in order to make them fully functional.
As a result, there are now not enough supplies to run the remaining facilities that have not been damaged — for any significant length of time.
EVERYTHING WAS PORTALED OUT
As I reported before, this was not a nuclear attack. Audio recordings revealed that for 12 hours before the final destruction occurred, in each case, there was the sounds of furniture sliding and people yelling and screaming.
Then it all went quiet.
This was soon followed by a sudden, tremendous increase in air pressure — causing an explosive, non-nuclear force that pulverized everything that was still left inside.
It was as if tremendous amounts of air was suddenly portaled into a space far too small to contain it.
All the materials, equipment and personnel had been safely removed from these bases before the pressure suddenly increased.
Strangely, the only things that remained were pieces of broken furniture. Even tables that had been screwed to the ground for earthquake security had been unscrewed and removed.
This had all the hallmarks of a deliberate "designer" event — and it seems very likely that the personnel are still alive, and being held somewhere else — with all their survival gear and food supplies brought along with them.
Senior officials were well aware of who was responsible.
A large spherical UFO was parked in near-Earth orbit, and cloaked. It was under observation by astronauts within the International Space Station, who used special equipment to see it, and shared their reports along secure channels.
The human inhabitants of the ship were scathingly referred to as "Asshole Hippies from Outer Space."
You, the reading public, coined the term AHFOS, which I will use here.
These AHFOS people appeared before the senior officials, uninvited, and asked them to surrender — or else the attacks would continue.
Their reasoning for doing this was to protect the wildlife, flora and fauna of the Earth — and the health and safety of its people.
Naturally, they were turned down — and the struggle went on.
There have been at least three major "waves" of additional base destructions since the first two were taken out in August.
The total number of affected bases is unknown, due to heavy classification — but is now at least 30.
Though I have nothing but intuition and guessing to suggest this, I would not be surprised if the actual number now exceeds 50 — out of a total of approximately 235, maybe more.
TRY TO IMAGINE WHAT THIS WOULD BE LIKE
Try to imagine what this event would be like for people on the inside. I will use a conventional, albeit extreme example for comparison.
Let's say you are growing thousands of pounds of high-grade marijuana plants in a private facility, illegally. You've been making great money and you never thought you would get caught.
What happens if you go there one day and all your plants and equipment are completely gone? Now all you have is an empty building. Everything you've invested in — all your greatest wealth — has suddenly disappeared.
Who do you call? The police? Who do you tell? Anyone? Who do you call? A lawyer? A private investigator?
Can you do ANYTHING within the conventional system? Absolutely not. As a corrupt drug dealer, your best bet would be to get suspicious, try to figure out who did it, and see if there was some covert way you could retaliate.
The same thing applies to the destruction of these underground facilities.
Who can they call? Who can they complain to? Who in the public can they tell — to get them all upset and drum up fears of an "Alien Invasion?"
FAKE ALIEN INVASION
Many of these underground facilities held fleets of highly advanced reverse-engineered "fake UFOs" that would have been used to create a mock alien invasion.
Those "birds" were removed along with everything else inside these facilities.
The reverse-engineered craft were a critical part of a plan to finalize the takeover of the planet — and to install a global, fascist "New World Order" while the public cowered in fear of "evil aliens" invading.
Hundreds of movies and TV shows have been created, ever since the 1950s, in order to telegraph this eventual blow — and stir up enough fear that the move would be effective once it was made.
THE ART OF CREATING FEAR
There is a whole art to creating fear.
If someone walks up behind you and suddenly runs you through with a sword, and you never heard them and had no idea they were coming, you don't have time to be afraid. You're suddenly just dying.
It's that weird little sound in the room that scares you. Then another. Then another. What was that?!??
The art of creating fear is all about the anticipation.
A massive amount of time, energy and money has been invested to create the anticipation of an impending "alien invasion."
Now it is clear that this will not be permitted to occur.
The very best of our technology on Earth pales in comparison to what the AHFOS possess.
THE 'HACKED' RQ-170 DRONE
After the widespread, astonishing wipeout of so many underground facilities, another startling development occurred — and this time it went public.
At the time I was unfortunately too preoccupied with writing up the Financial Tyranny investigation to cover this story.
On December 4, 2011, a Lockheed Martin RQ-170 'Sentinel' stealth drone was overtaken on its maiden voyage into Iranian airspace — and guided in for a smooth landing on an Iranian landing strip.
Somehow, the self-destruct mechanisms were disabled — and the Iranians came into full possession of the technology.
Photographs and video of the seized craft were then released.
IRAN'S INITIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
Here is the text and link to Iran's initial announcement — before this event had been confirmed on an international level.
On Sunday December 4, the Iranian Army's electronic warfare unit downed with minimum damage the US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft, which was flying over the Iranian city of Kashmar, some 140 miles (225km) from the Afghan border.
The aircraft had crossed into Iran's airspace over the border with neighboring Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, Iran has announced that it intends to carry out reverse engineering on the captured RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft, which is also known as the Beast of Kandahar, and is similar in design to a US Air Force B-2 stealth bomber.
On Tuesday, two US officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that the drone has been part of a CIA reconnaissance mission, involving the United States' intelligence community stationed in Afghanistan.
They claimed the reconnaissance capability of the RQ-170 Sentinel drone enabled it to gather information from inside Iran by flying along Afghanistan's border with the Islamic Republic.
The RQ-170 is an unmanned stealth aircraft designed and developed by the American company, Lockheed Martin.
VERY FEW PEOPLE REALIZED WHAT THIS REALLY MEANS
Very few people have enough of a need-to-know basis of security clearance to understand precisely how significant this event really was.
Suffice it to say that the RQ-170 used the most advanced communications and guidance system available on Earth.
It was believed to be completely secure, completely foolproof and completely non-hackable.
The system is extremely elaborate, involving multiple secure, encrypted channels working in unison.
The description I heard was of a technology so sophisticated that it seemed impossible that such a system could ever have been compromised.
The RQ-170 uses the same communications system that guides all the most advanced back-engineered "fake" UFOs in the Old World Order arsenal.
If these drones can be hacked, and brought down, it means not a single craft that would have been used in a fake, pre-planned "Alien 9/11" is secure — or even functional.
This drone capture was so shocking, and so unexpected, that it led to an astonishing series of political events.
THE PENTAGON CONFIRMS
The Pentagon took the remarkable step of publicly confirming that the drone was actually captured — shortly after it happened.
Pentagon Confirms Iran's Possible Capture Of Missing US Stealth Drone, Fears Reverse Engineering
A $6 million stealth drone went missing this weekend on the Afghanistan-Iranian border, officials in Washington confirmed. Iran claimed to have shot down a drone Saturday.
Pentagon officials said Monday that one of their stealth drones had indeed gone missing late last week while flying a mission along the lengthy Afghanistan border with Iran.
Fox News reported
that Iran was claiming over the weekend that they had shot down an American drone and recovered it virtually intact.
With military officials confirming that an RQ170 Stealth Sentinel had gone missing, the fear now is that the top secret aircraft might be reverse engineered, replicas built, and those drones used in the future against the United States and/or its allies.
"Iran's military has downed an intruding RQ-170 American drone in eastern Iran," Iran's Arabic-language Al Alam state television network quoted an unnamed source Sunday, according to Al Jazeera
But until there was official confirmation, media outlets remained skeptical.
Iran had claimed to have shot down American drones before, including as recent as July. Although the claims have always been followed by the announcement that the downed crafts would be placed on display, there has yet to be a displayed drone.
There had also never been official confirmation of a missing Stealth drone, either.
The capture of this drone led to embarrassing disclosures of the US invading Iranian airspace, illegally, to spy on them — ostensibly for the detection of potential nuclear sites.
Drone Crash in Iran Reveals Surveillance Efforts
WASHINGTON — The stealth C.I.A. drone that crashed deep inside Iranian territory last week was part of a stepped-up surveillance program that has frequently sent the United States’ most hard-to-detect drone into the country to map suspected nuclear sites — according to foreign officials and American experts who have been briefed on the effort.
Until this week, the high-altitude flights from bases in Afghanistan were among the most secret of many intelligence-collection efforts against Iran
, and American officials refuse to discuss it.
But the crash of the vehicle, which Iranian officials said occurred more than 140 miles from the border with Afghanistan, blew the program’s cover.
The overflights by the bat-winged RQ-170 Sentinel, built by Lockheed Martin and first glimpsed on an airfield in Kandahar, Afghanistan, in 2009, are part of an increasingly aggressive intelligence collection program aimed at Iran, current and former officials say.
The urgency of the effort has been underscored by a recent public debate in Israel about whether time is running out for a military strike to slow Iran’s progress toward a nuclear weapon….
UNITED STATES BLAMES IT ON A "MALFUNCTION", NOT HACKING
This next article came out in the New York Times on December 8th, before Iran released photographic and video footage of the downed craft.
Iranian officials have said that the aircraft was detected near the town of Kashmar, 140 miles from the Afghan border, and that it was shot down or crashed because its control systems were hacked by the Iranian military.
American officials say that those stories are fanciful, and that the drone was lost because of a malfunction.
Either way, the centerpiece of what had been a covert program is now in the hands of Iranian forces, which may share the captured technology with other countries.
There are differing accounts of the extent of the damage to the craft; Iran has not published photographs of the wreckage, though officials have said video of the drone may soon be broadcast on television.
Two officials said that the United States briefly considered going in to retrieve the downed drone, or to destroy it, as first reported Wednesday by The Wall Street Journal, but the operation was deemed too risky.
There are questions about whether Iran could reverse-engineer the technology, though they certainly could sell the vehicle to China, Russia or other countries with a deep interest in it.
“The flights from Moscow and Beijing to Tehran were probably quite full the last few days,” said P. W. Singer, who studies military robotics at the Brookings Institution.
THE FOOTAGE APPEARS
On this same day, December 8th, 2011, video footage of the captured drone was released. The story was covered on Huffington Post and other news outlets.
The most blatant lie in the official statements about this is the idea that such an advanced piece of technology would be built without any self-destruct mechanisms to speak of.
Iranian TV Airs Footage of Stealth Drone
ABC News reports
that the drone was on a secret surveillance mission for the CIA.
Iran's official news agency reported
that Iran's armed forces shot down the drone as it flew about 140 miles from the Afghan border into Iranian airspace.
RUSSIA AND CHINA OFFICIALLY GET INVOLVED
As this story progressed, Russia and China became officially involved. Though they have been thoroughly maligned in the Western mainstream media as "enemies of freedom," they are in fact enemies of the Old World Order — and are working to defeat them.
Telegraph – Drone’s Navigation Systems Were Overridden
The RQ-170 Sentinel, supposedly the CIA’s unseen “eye in the sky”, capable of beaming back a trove of imagery and electronic intercepts, was broadcast on Iranian
The aircraft was shown beneath an Iranian flag, apparently intact after crashing 140 miles inside the country last Sunday. State television claimed that an electronic attack had forced it down by overriding flight systems.
American officials acknowledged the loss of the aircraft, but said it was more likely the drone had simply crashed.
Russia and China immediately seized their chance to gain a unique insight into one of the world’s most powerful intelligence assets, asking Iran for permission to inspect the drone.
MORE TRUTH IS REVEALED — THE COVERT MISSIONS HAVE BEEN EXTENSIVE
As we continue with this article excerpt, more and more of the truth is revealed.
Surveillance flights over Iran by CIA-operated aircraft of this kind have been taking place for several years, using bases in neighbouring Afghanistan. Iran’s nuclear installations are believed to be the prime target.
The Sentinel, which entered service in 2009, is capable of both intercepting communications and gathering images. No Sentinels are known to have been lost before.
Unlike other drones used by the CIA, notably the Predator and the Reaper, the Sentinel carries no weapons — and its sole purpose is reconnaissance.
If Russia and China are allowed to inspect the Sentinel, their goal would be to identify – and then replicate – its advanced technology.
Elizabeth Quintana, an expert on unmanned air vehicles at the Royal United Services Institute, said they would be particularly interested in the drone’s ability to evade detection by radar.
This “stealth technology” is also used by the most advanced “fifth generation” fighters in service with the US Air Force, notably the F-22 Raptor.
“The Chinese and the Russians are looking to emulate the US fifth generation fighters,” said Ms Quintana. “The Chinese are very keen to replicate any American technologies, and they are coming along in leaps and bounds.”
OBAMA FORMALLY REQUESTS THAT IRAN RETURN THE DRONE
The story just got weirder and weirder — as President Obama took the surprising step of formally asking Iran to return the drone, in a White House news conference.
Think about it. If the guidance system running this drone is the most advanced in existence, and that system was compromised enough to land a drone fully intact, then the entire "fake UFO" arsenal is of no use.
Obama Calls on Iran to Give Back Downed Drone
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration has delivered a formal request to Iran for the return of a U.S. surveillance drone captured by Iranian armed forces, but said it is not hopeful that Iran will comply.
President Barack Obama said Monday that the U.S. wants the top-secret aircraft back. "We have asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," Obama said during a White House news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Monday.
In an interview broadcast live Monday night on Venezuelan state television, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said nothing to suggest his country would grant the U.S. request.
"The Americans have perhaps decided to give us this spy plane," Ahmadinejad said. "We now have control of this plane."
Speaking through an interpreter, Ahmadinejad said: "There are people here who have been able to control this spy plane, who can surely analyze this plane's system also. … In any case, now we have this spy plane."
He added, "Very soon, they're going to learn more about the abilities and possibilities of our country."
A "SIGNIFICANT INTELLIGENCE LOSS", SAYS DICK CHENEY
What "abilities and possibilities" was Ahmadinejad speaking of that allowed them to "control this spy plane"? We'll find out the most likely answer in a minute — but first let's continue our excerpt.
On Tuesday, a semi-official Iranian news agency said authorities have shrugged off the U.S. request.
Defense Minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi said the United States should apologize for invading Iranian air space instead of asking for the return of the unmanned aircraft.
Obama wouldn't comment on what the Iranians might learn from studying the downed aircraft.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said it's difficult to know "just frankly how much they're going to be able to get from having obtained those parts."
Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Tuesday called the downing of the drone "a significant intelligence loss."
"For us to go in and take out the drone that crashed, I think, would have been a fairly simple operation," he said on CBS's "The Early Show."
But Cheney said the administration "basically limited itself to saying please give it back."

ANOTHER DRONE "ACCIDENTALLY" CRASHES A MERE NINE DAYS LATER
The next big development in the story occurred when yet another US drone was compromised and crashed only nine days later — this time on a base in the Seychelles.
Again, this does not appear to be a coincidence — but part of a coordinated effort to insure that these technologies could not be used.
US Military Drone Crashes in Seychelles
One of the Air Force’s premier drones crashed Tuesday morning in the Seychelles, the Indian Ocean archipelago that serves as a base for anti-piracy operations, as well as U.S. surveillance missions over Somalia
The Seychelles, where U.S. officials have worked closely with local officials to establish the drone base, is hardly enemy territory, and the drone that crashed Tuesday was operated by the Air Force, not the CIA, which operated the stealth RQ-170 that crashed in Iran.
Still, Tuesday’s crash once again illustrates the fallibility of unmanned aerial vehicles.
The Air Force acknowledged the crash at the Seychelles airport, and a spokesman for the service said the crash happened as the drone was landing. No one was injured.
The Air Force said the cause of the crash — the first ever of a Reaper in the Seychelles — was under investigation.
ANOTHER CURIOUS PLOT TWIST — INVOLVING CHINA
The day before this drone crashed, the Seychelles had popped up in the world's media for a different reason. They had apparently offered China to host their naval ships, offshore, in this strategically-important region.
It is possible that these drones would have been used to kill whomever concocted this plan — but instead, the drones themselves were again proven to have been completely compromised.
China Mulls Seychelles Naval Hosting Offer
BEIJING (AP) — China said Tuesday it is considering an offer from the Seychelles to host Chinese naval ships in the Indian Ocean island nation, highlighting the increasing global reach of a navy that recently launched its first aircraft carrier.
State-run media gave prominent coverage to the Seychelles offer to allow rest and resupply for Chinese ships in the multinational force conducting anti-piracy patrols off the coast of Somalia, which China has joined since late 2008.
But the reports were careful to reaffirm China's firm policy of not establishing permanent military bases overseas, a cornerstone of Beijing's claim not to be seeking regional hegemony or military alliances with other nations.
"China's position is clear. China has never set up military bases in other countries," Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin told reporters at a daily news briefing.
DID IRAN ACQUIRE THE DRONE THROUGH CLASSIFIED TECHNOLOGY?
The next big twist in this story was even more interesting. Keshe Foundation, an Iranian-based technology consortium, strongly hints at having advanced gravity-shielding systems in this press release.
We will break it up into three pieces and analyze them as we go.
The ETs are working for the good of the planet, not to feed the egos of any one nation. Since Iran has been heavily targeted, but the vast majority of its people want peace, it appears that they were given a "trump card" that would change the game.
It is possible that this technology was invented within Iran, but it seems more likely that it was given to them — at the most propitious time.
Iran Capture of American Drone Due to Classified Technology
We have been sent the request to explain this news:
In response to the above question, there is no Hacking, but the use of advanced space technology.
In the past in this forum and in my presentations around Europe and in my international interviews in the past months, I have explained again and again that the Keshe Foundation and the Iranian spaceship program has the capability of radar blockage and capture of material in airborne condition.
The Islamic republic of Iran has the capability of capturing and landing any flying object — irrespective of their size and speed — as seen with the capture of one of the most advanced flying crafts in these above videos, and the request of the so-called "most advanced nation on earth" for its toy back.
In this case, there has been no malfunctioning of the craft.
This has been a simple capture and landing of an object at high speed — through advanced space programs.
THE STORY GETS EVEN MORE FASCINATING
As we continue with the Keshe Foundation excerpt, we start to get closer to what they mean by "advanced space technology."
Other questions asked:
Why couldn't the US destroy the craft remotely, as it is fitted with the necessary self-destruction systems?
The Iran spaceship program has the capability of jamming and blocking any incoming radar, as we have explained months ago on this forum — and now we see the practical use of the technology.
If the craft was crashed, why did it not explode — and no damage can be seen?
The craft has been air-picked-up and been put down on its belly through the use of field forces.
Iran has and will protect its territorial integrity through the use of its advanced space technologies, which it has acquired through its new space programme.
AND NOW FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT PART…
Of course, some people will always be paranoid and suspicious of everything — but in this case, the Keshe Foundation seems to be articulating a desire for peace.
Ultimately, this is what everyone wants, other than a small group of bloodthirsty elites.
Iran will not use this technology for aggression, but for only showing to other nations that the time of nuclear and so-called western advanced military technology has come to an end.
In my inputs in this forum over past years I have informed the readers of these capabilities of this new technology.
The size of the 27 meters of the craft is no problem to cover, and the speed of the craft is child-play for this new space program.
We salute the advancement in space technology of Iranian scientists, and thank them for the peaceful use of this new technology.
I am sure we will see more in the coming near future of how space will be a peaceful place with this technology — in the hands of the peace-loving nation of Iran.
The Foundation is ready to release the second stage of more advanced technology of this class early next year, as we are putting the final touches on its development.
We invite the US government and other nations to enter into negotiation with the Foundation and The Iranian government for disclosure of the full space technology to all nations simultaneously.
There shall be no more war race, but a space race — to join and conquer space, and not each other's little pieces of land — so-called nations.
This offer stands, and is extended to all nations — irrespective of their colour, race and religion.
We have shown the original system on 3rd of the December 2011 in Gent in Belgium in a public demonstration for the first time, and now the use of the technology in shown by the nation which has its rights to it.
This is a very encouraging development.
Western propaganda media has so thoroughly brainwashed us into seeing Iran as the ultimate evil that it would be quite a shock to have them debut the technology that propels us into the Golden Age.
FEBRUARY 7, 2012: ADDITIONAL DRONES ARE CRASHING AND GOING UNREPORTED
The "Voice of the White House" has a private insider newsletter that comes out once every week or two — and contains information that sometimes is not published on the main site.
This is what I read as of February 7, 2012 — a "number" of drones were having accidents that were not being reported, for obvious reasons.
Washington, D.C. February 7, 2012: “Some malicious person, or persons, got into the control systems for unmanned drones and a number of them have been having unreported accidents of late.
Any system which man devises, no matter how secret they might consider it, can be broken into by man.
The Army wants to send a fleet of drones all over the United States, no doubt to spy on the army of Taliban terrorists pouring into this country from Canada and Mexico disguised as stuffed pandas….
Like the movie, the “Terminator”, the warfare of the future will be robotic in nature but before we get to that stage, trust me, no one in this country at least will be unobserved.
From women taking nude sunbaths on their patios to children walking to school, all will be observed. But they are trying to keep us all safe. But the question arises: Safe from whom?”
This "Terminator" vision has had to be completely abandoned, regardless of what we saw in the movies. This reliable insider source made it clear that the drones were being systematically hacked and brought down.
MARCH 1ST, 2012: THE U.S. DITCHES GLOBAL HAWK DRONES
Less than three months after the drone capture, and only three weeks after the above insider disclosure, the Air Force announced that Global Hawk drones would be completely discontinued.
There are still other varieties of drones, of course — but this was still a very significant announcement.
No mention of the very public Iran drone capture is made — but it should nonetheless have been obvious to everyone with a short-term memory.
Air Force Shelves $3B Worth of Drones
Far from spying on terrorists, more than a dozen high-tech surveillance drones, which together cost the U.S. government more than $3 billion, could soon be sitting in a storage facility gathering dust — after top Air Force officials admitted this week the birds still are not as good as the half-century-old spy planes they were designed to replace.
Air Force Gen. Norton Schwartz appeared with Air Force Secretary Michael Donley before a Senate committee Tuesday, where the two defended the service's decision to stop acquisition of the Global Hawk Block 30 drones — and to shelve the 18 Block 30 unmanned drones the Air Force already has, claiming it will save the Pentagon $2.5 billion….
LET'S GET BACK TO THE MAIN THEME…
The ETs may well be giving various countries the tools they need to help fight this battle. However, let's be clear that no favoritism is being shown here.
Anyone who attempts to make a move that would harm the Earth, and / or the life on the Earth, in any significant way — incurring sudden, mass casualties and causing widespread, catastrophic damage — will be stopped.
In order to explain this, more insider leaks are required. In the next section of this investigation we will go into more of the provable information to support these notions — but for now I will share with you what I heard.
RUSSIA IS TOLD "DON'T GO THERE"
Last year, the Russians secretly warned the US that if any attacks were conducted against Iran, they would retaliate with an EMP strike.
Any attack against Iran would be considered an attack against Russia.
The EMP strike would cripple the United States' power grid — and bring the country to its knees.
Some time in January, a fleet of six UFOs landed directly in Red Square. Apparently some people did witness this as a UFO sighting.
Human-looking, peaceful ETs emerged from the ships — in front of the astonished Russian lawmakers.
They let Putin and the other members of his cabinet know that such an attack would not be permitted to occur.
Though I was not specifically told this, I have reason to believe the Russians were also given a more detailed briefing about what was being done — and why.
PALESTINIANS AND ISRAELIS
Also some time in early January, the Palestinians prepared a sneak attack on Israel. The Israelis intercepted the plans and were waiting, fully armed and ready for the firefight as the Palestinians broke through the barrier.
The moment of truth. Everyone began firing — or rather they TRIED to begin firing.
Not one machine gun, missile launcher, hand grenade or pistol would function. Every single piece of equipment was totally jammed.
Later, when these weapons were brought back to the gunnery range, they functioned perfectly. This whole scenario has now played out on three different occasions.
In each instance, the soldiers were so amazed at what was happening that they all began looking up into the sky, throwing up their arms, and fully acknowledging that some sort of Divine Miracle was occurring.
Many of them fell to their knees and cried.
Nothing was visible in the sky — but the effects of what was happening were undeniable.
Had this event been permitted to occur, we would have immediately plunged into World War III. It could have escalated very quickly and posed a lethal threat to all life on Earth in a very short time.
FALSE FLAG ATTACK AGAINST IRANIAN OIL REFINERY THWARTED
Early this year, certain rogue elements within the "Illuminati" world of occult politics wanted to create a massive provocation that would immediately hurl us into World War III.
Mercenaries with scuba gear were hired to swim towards the shore of Iran, undetected, and plant powerful explosives on a major oil refinery.
The resulting explosion would create a massive oil gusher, comparable to the BP oil spill — creating a huge environmental disaster that would quickly ruin the Persian Gulf.
The mercenaries came up against an invisible barrier in the ocean. For 24 hours they tried to swim over, under and through it — but no matter where they went, they could not penetrate it.
This barrier apparently had qualities similar to silk or elastic. The more they pushed against it, the harder it would resist — only to snap back like a rubber band once they moved away from it.
Finally, they were forced to abandon the mission. It was simply not possible to cross this barrier. Each additional time they tried it, the same thing happened. The entire plan has since been scrapped — by necessity.
TANKS HEADED FOR SYRIA WON'T START
A giant US naval transport vessel was filled with tanks, and had orders to quietly drive them into Syria — beefing up the theater of operations in preparation for an all-out war in the Middle East.
The moment of truth. Time to ship 'em out — but none of the tanks would start.
They sailed away from the shore. At a sufficiently far distance away, the tanks seemed to work just fine.
This whole sequence repeated itself at least two or three times. Ultimately the ship itself stalled out in the water — and couldn't even go back any farther towards the Syrian coast.
The whole mission had to be abandoned. The tanks still worked just fine once they were back in neutral territory.
MARCH 5TH, 2012: FORMER MILITARY OFFICIALS SPEAK OUT AGAINST WAR WITH IRAN
On March 5th, 2012, a full-page ad appeared in the Washington Post — from former senior US military and intelligence officials, blatantly warning against attacking Iran.
These may very well be some of the people planning the mass arrests — finally becoming brave enough to risk their lives in speaking out.
On the day that President Obama is to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a full-page ad published in the Washington Post features former senior U.S. military and intelligence officials stating that military action against Iran at this stage is "not only unnecessary, it is dangerous."
The ad was sponsored by the National Iranian American Council, and signed by the following former officials:
– Major General Paul Eaton (USA, Ret.)
– Tom Fingar, fmr. Deputy Director of National Intelligence for Analysis
– Lt. General Robert G. Gard (USA, Ret.)
– General Joseph Hoar (USMC, Ret.)
– Brig. General John H. Johns (USA, Ret.)
– Maj. Gen Rudolph Ostovich III (USA, Ret.)
– Paul Pillar, fmr. National Intelligence Officer for the Near East and South Asia
– Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson (USA, Ret.)
Indeed, many brave men and women have stepped forward over the years — and revealed how the Powers that Were have never reigned un-opposed over this planet.
Their efforts have been systematically blocked and confounded — every step of the way.
The single most confusing element in this story is how certain initiatives are unavoidably blocked, while other things — such as 9/11 — are allowed to proceed, unhindered.
Nonetheless, there is a robust body of evidence that UFOs have routinely appeared over nuclear missile installations ever since the dawning of the nuclear age.
Veterans of this website and its material are already well aware of what I have shared in the China's October Surprise article series.
On the night of February 20, 1954, President Eisenhower was allegedly taken to Edwards Air Force Base for a secret meeting with human-like extraterrestrials of tall, blond appearance and blue eyes.
That astonishing event (if it occurred) will experience its 50th anniversary in February of 2004. An earlier incident, the Washington UFO sightings, reached their 50th anniversary in July of 2002.
First those human-like extra-terrestrials warned us against any possible alliance with the greys, who had just flown aggressively over Washington D.C. Then they offered to help us with our spiritual development.
They required first that we dismantle our nuclear weapons, especially in light of the horrific events of 1945. Furthermore, they refused to provide any new military technologies, saying that we were spiritually unable to handle even the technologies that we already possessed!
They said also that we were on a path to self-destruction, and emphasized that we must stop killing each other, and stop polluting the Earth.
Nuclear disarmament was not considered to be in the best interests of the United States back in 1954, during a Cold War with Russia (or even today). So those tall, blond extra-terrestrials of spiritual demeanour (author: the Feathered Serpent?) were effectively spurned.
Yet a treaty was signed later with a different set of extraterrestrials called 'greys'. They had just over flown the White House, and did not seemingly exhibit the same reluctance to share military technologies with us.
A deal was struck that, in exchange for new military technologies, we would allow them to abduct a small number of people and harvest some livestock, so long as they provided us with a list of people abducted.
That was a very uneven deal. Why did Eisenhower ever agree to such terms?
Phillip Corso from Eisenhower's National Security Council said, 'We negotiated a kind of surrender with them, so long as we couldn't fight. They dictated the terms, because they knew what we most feared was disclosure."
By 1955, it had become clear that those grey aliens had deceived Eisenhower. We got less than the technologies we had bargained for, while the number of people abducted exceeded what we had agreed to, and there was no list.
Douglas Macarthur noted in October 1955:
"We speak now in strange terms of harnessing cosmic energy, and of conflict between a united human race and the sinister forces from another planet. The nations of our world will have to unite, for the next war will be an interplanetary one."
2012 Politics II: Crop Circle Prophecies
2012 Politics IV: Crop Circle History (October 19, 2008)
HISTORY OF CROP CIRCLES
Chicklade, near Salisbury, Wiltshire – 1983 (Activated Colin Andrews)
This was one case where a single glance from a car, would change the life of Colin Andrews for ever. Little did he know on that day, his life would change in every conceivable way as a direct result of what he was looking at.
As a naturally quiet person, he would become very public as an author, television personality, he would resign his job and move from his country as he travelled from one country to another lecturing around the world on the subject.
Circles Phenomenon Research would be shortly formed with a small team who would place a new term into vocabulary around the whole world – The term 'Crop Circles" had arrived.
Sri Yantra Etched Into Dry Lake Bed – August 10, 1990
As Swami Vishwananda
mentioned it in the Workshop
: In the middle of no where for no one to see a National Guard overflight spots a massive earth etching in an Oregon dry lake bed. Air National Guard pilot Bill Miller was the first to report the earth etching during a fly-over on August 10, 1990. The massive formation was a quarter mile in width etched into a dry lake bed east of Steens Mountain about 70 miles southeast of Burns, Oregon
in an area known as Mickey Basin. Reported in the wire services on Sept. 14th, it was identified as the ancient Hindu meditation
icon: the Sri Yantra
A very large, perfectly formed, ancient Hindu mandala
called the Sri Yantra
was discovered inscribed into the dry lake bed by an Air National Guard pilot on a normal training run from a base near Boise, Idaho. This symbol was over a quarter of a mile in length, and consisted of over 13 miles of lines etched into the impacted mud 3”-10” deep. No human or tire tracks found anywhere near the site. A group of 5 artists from Iowa tried claiming responsibility for the symbol's appearance saying they carved the entire design with a garden cultivator during a nine-day period. No other pilots or anyone else reported seeing it in any stage of their supposed construction time. Analysis of the formation’s line indicated that the soil had been removed, whereas the artists’ garden cultivator / plow method produced small mounds of dirt on either side of their demonstration lines left from where they plowed.
Ufologist's Don Newman and Alan Decker went to the site on the morning of September 15, 1990 and reported the symbol as being furrowed into the dry lake bed about 3" deep. The area was noticeably missing any signs of tire tracks or foot prints even though their own tire tracks left 1/4" deep marks on the crusty surface of the dry lake bed. After further investigation their colleague, Jim Deardorff, wrote the story for UFO Magazine.
A little over a year later, October 1991, Jim Deardorff learned from Jennifer Brown-Jacobs, who at the time had been head of the Portland UFO Group, that two men had a UFO sighting in the area during this period. They'd been camping with a sail-plane group at the western edge of the Alvord Desert near that dry lake bed. Their sighting took place the evening of July 5 or 6th around 10 pm. They reported seeing an array of three bright lights the color of sodium-vapor lamps forming an equilateral triangular with the apex facing upwards to the northeast. The array occupied about three degrees width and lasted ten minutes.
They didn't think much of it at the time and when they looked that way again 20 minutes later the lights were gone. However, they noticed a strange small puffy cloud where the lights had been. Extending from the cloud were two straight appendages positioned at 2:30 and 8:30 respectively at 12 degrees overall. They estimated its location as eight miles away and 15 degrees above the horizon. This placed it directly over the dry lake bed. They watched the stationary greyish cloud for about an hour. Due to these eyewitness accounts the formation was sighting was classified as an unidentified and naturally associate with the Sri Yantra earth etching. After the story broke a few people claimed they had created the Sri Yantra, but their claims were found to be baseless.
After reviewing all the evidence of this case and the improbability of what these men claimed, a serious question must be asked as to the origon of this desert etching and why this group of older, well dressed men from another state, have gone to such lengths to convince the public that they are responsible.
Joe Mason Sri Yantra Synchronicity
I had finally found it – the pattern that had appeared in Oregon as a huge land marking grooved into the lake bed! And, yes!, the central star pattern was the one I drew back in 1990 and sent to Pat Delgado and others!
I found the old "CPD" newsletter with the article, and my drawing in one of my old notebooks. I drew my Tantric Yantra star on September 13, 1990. The news story about the "sriyantra" lake bed marking came out the very next day, September 14, 1990!
At 1:11 a.m. on September 13, 1990, I drew a 14-pointed star based on this Tantric Yantra that I found in a book called Myths
, edited by Alexander Eliot
(McGraw-Hill Book Co., NY 1976)
I felt an inspiration to draw it in a special way. I could see that the two major triangles in the star-shape were like an offset Star of David. I was in possession of nine brass vouchers called "chits," that had been involved in several coincidences. The chits are shaped somewhat like an eight-petal flower.
The chits were used at my work place in working with the tool crib personnel. Craftsmen, such as I, exchanged a chit for a tool, to be used for a short time. By "coincidence, I found that the word "chit," in Sanskrit, means "consciousness."
In two of the coincidences, I had arranged the nine chits into a diamond shape, in the order of 1, 2, 3, 2, 1, from the top-down. I took a photograph of them to illustrate:
Thanks to movies like M. Night Shyamalan's 'Signs,' everyone has heard of "crop circles," but this is considered another 'fringe' subject that most people laughingly dismiss.
In Shyamalan's movie they were presented as terrifying portents of a worldwide alien invasion:
The first time I ever saw a "crop circle" was in December 1990, on the cover of a new Led Zeppelin CD box set my father gave me for Christmas, just in time to survive my trip into college in 1991. Even then, I never knew whether it was real or just a clever photographic trick.
I later found out that it was indeed real, and the formation itself appeared at Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, on July 11th, 1990:
Alton Barnes, near Devizes, Wiltshire – July 12, 1990 (Classic formation captured the world’s attention)
My next burst of information on 'crop circles' came when I read Richard C. Hoagland's "The Monuments of Mars" in September 1993 — exactly 15 years ago.
The back cover of my 1993 edition featured a black-and-white picture of a gigantic crop formation on the top half of the page. It had appeared in Barbury Castle, England on July 17, 1991:
I was fascinated to discover that this formation mapped out a very advanced geometric formula — and it had been extensively diagrammed and studied by many different researchers.
As this next diagram partially illustrates, Barbury Castle 1991 gave all the angle relationships that naturally occur when you place a simple geometric solid called a "tetrahedron" inside a sphere. (A tetrahedron looks like a pyramid, except that instead of a square on the bottom, you have another equilateral triangle):
The Barbury Castle formation is clearly in the shape of a tetrahedron — you have a giant triangle with an interesting circular shape at each corner, and lines are drawn from each corner of the triangle towards the center — forming a three-dimensional, pyramid-like object:
A NEW PHYSICS AFFECTING THE PLANETS
Hoagland had already been investigating physics discoveries demonstrating that this pattern — a tetrahedron inside a sphere — seemed to be having a clear effect on the planets.
Each planet, as it rotated, had strong upwellings of energy at the points where the tips of the tetrahedron would naturally emerge, if one vertex was fixed at the north or south pole.
For example, on gas planets you would get giant cyclones right at this "tetrahedral latitude" of 19.5 degrees above or below the Equator.
This is best seen with the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, which has remained in exactly the same place ever since telescopes were first discovered, and is big enough to fit more than one Earth inside itself:
Neptune also has a "Great Dark Spot" at the same latitude, and Saturn has faster-rotating bands of clouds at this latitude.
On the solid planets you get giant volcanoes — the Hawaiian island chain on Earth and Olympus Mons on Mars, a volcano three times larger than Mount Everest. Venus also has two enormous shield volcanoes at this same latitude.
BLUEPRINTS OF A NEW SCIENCE
This is obviously a physics more advanced than the mainstream currently accepts — and it centers on the idea that this geometry is somehow involved with energy.
Huge amounts of lava and mantle are surging up to create volcanoes on the solid planets, right where the theory predicts, and gigantic atmospheric vortexes form on the gas planets.
Something has to be causing these volcanoes and super-cyclones to form in these special geometric locations — and it's obviously something we don't generally know or understand.
I immediately realized that if this phenomenon were studied in greater detail, it was entirely possible that this new physics could be used to generate clean energy at little to no cost — just like how it has kept the Great Red Spot cyclone turning on Jupiter for at least 400 years, with no sign of ever slowing down.
I was astonished by the idea that a crop formation had demonstrated such advanced physics concepts. For years I struggled to understand how these geometric energy patterns could be appearing within the planets, and what it all meant.
As I cover in the three free CONVERGENCE books on this site, and in various David's Blog entries, I did ultimately figure out that it all had to do with harmonic vibrations appearing as three-dimensional geometric patterns — but that is another discussion.
Barbury Castle 1991 also suggested three-dimensional 'pyramid' geometry on one of the corners as well — but you had to draw in the lines in order to see it:
CROP CIRCLES ARE NOT NEW
It is far outside the scope of this article series to go through the extensive proof of paranormal activity with the crop circle phenomenon. In no way can all this data be written off as simply the result of human tampering, nor can it be explained with theories of strange atmospheric vortexes.
One of the best collections of data is written by Geoff Stray and can be found here. An excellent 66-page book on the history of crop circles can be read for free here. Lastly, this article by David Pratt is also excellent, and has some of the best pictures.
For those who are not aware, 'crop circles' appear overnight, fully formed, in various crops. One very substantial formation, the "Julia Set", appeared within a 15-to-45 minute period at Stonehenge on July 7, 1996 — in broad daylight.
The Julia Set is a common aspect of fractal mathematics — which has many curious properties that could be very useful to understanding the holographic nature of the universe, once they are applied to things like quantum mechanics.
A professional surveying engineer said it would take him about two full days to lay out the design:
As Dr. Gil Levengood and other researchers have determined, on the 'real' crop formations, the stalks are bent at the growth nodes, not broken:
A similar effect can be produced by microwaving grain — however in these cases the crops often continue growing after being bent.
The problem, of course, is that microwaving would quickly burn the crops — but in the crop formations there is never any sign of burning.
Some researchers have discovered that large amounts of underground water disappear beneath the crop formations right after they form — another sign of an advanced technology being used to draw up the water and suppress the burning of the crops.
CROP CIRCLES ARE WORLDWIDE — AND CONTINUALLY IMPROVING
The ones that have gained the most attention have been in the English countryside, though they have also appeared throughout Europe and the Americas.
A great number — many thousands — have also been spotted in India, though they have gotten much less publicity and no good pictures seem to be online.
This introduction to David Pratt's article is an excellent summary:
Every year over 200 designs appear in crops around the world. These patterns of flattened plants have been reported on every continent, in around 30 countries, but the majority have appeared in southern England.
Since the early 1990s, the original simple circles have developed into huge, intricate, geometrical patterns of stunning precision and beauty.
Most appear in wheat, barley and oil-seed rape, but they have also been reported in rye, oats, flax, maize, sugar cane, peas, potatoes, sunflowers, grass, fruit orchards, rice paddies, snow, and ice.
Over the years, crop formations have been attributed to a variety of mundane causes: drunks armed with string and boards, wild young farmers, disillusioned art students, out-of-work journalists, overapplication of fertilizer, interference from mobile phones, squabbling birds, geometrically-gifted cows, and sex-mad hedgehogs.
Although the general public, mass media and scientific establishment tend to dismiss the entire phenomenon as the work of human pranksters, there is strong evidence that an unexplained force and guiding intelligence are at work.
CROP CIRCLES HAVE BEEN DOCUMENTED FOR AT LEAST 1200 YEARS
As incredible as this may sound, documented reports of crop formations go back to at least 815 AD. Agobard, the Archbishop of Lyons, issued an edict prohibiting pagans from taking seeds out of crop circles for their fertility rituals.
Obviously they were a regular phenomenon for this to be mentioned so casually in the official church records.
These next three excerpts help round out the story. Even the BBC covered this story at one point (emphasis added):
When do the circles date from? One of the earliest reports was in Lyon in 815AD, and a late 16th Century woodcut depicts the devil mowing a field into patterns.
The oldest known recorded crop circle event occurred in the 9th century in France, where the Bishop of Lyon sent out a prohibition to the recently converted locals against using seeds taken from crop circles for pagan fertility rituals.
In 815 AD, Agobard, the archbishop of Lyon, wrote “Against the foolish opinion of the masses about hail and thunder” and reported that people believed in “Tempestarii ”, which had conjured cloud ships from Magonia, a far-off place in the skies.
These resulted in fierce storms, and a ransom was demanded on behalf of the Magonians in the form of crops they had flattened.
The account was made famous by UFO researcher Jacques Vallee in his “Passport to Magonia ”, in which he underlined that the UFO phenomenon seemed to be a modern variation of an ancient theme…
"FAIRY RINGS" DATE BACK TO AT LEAST THE 12TH CENTURY
There is a rich history of crop circle legends where these formations are referred to as "fairy rings" or "fairy circles." This Wikipedia entry has a surprisingly large amount of links and supporting data regarding these historic accounts.
It was believed the circles were formed in the aftermath of fairies and other mythical beings dancing in circles.
In some cases it seems you have a ring of mushrooms or flowers that grow in a circle, as we will see, but other legends seem consistent with what the Bishop of Lyons was referring to in 815 AD.
You can see from the Wikipedia entry that the "fairy ring" legend is vast in scope and extends through many different cultures, over at least several hundred years — to at least the 12th century:
The Middle English term elferingewort ("elf-ring"), meaning "a ring of daisies caused by elves' dancing" dates to the 12th century.
Hall, Alaric (2007). Elves in Anglo-Saxon England: Matters of Belief, Health, Gender and Identity. Rochester, New York: Boydell & Brewer. ISBN 978-1-84383-294-2
An illustration of a "fairy ring" was also posted in the Wikipedia entry, found in a book on British folklore from 1880. This is photographic evidence clearly establishing that the fairy ring legend was associated with flattened circles of crops:
This next excerpt on fairy rings goes into greater detail about the "fairy ring" phenomenon as it relates to modern crop circles:
Indeed, circles on the ground have always had a magical connotation. Take, for example, the fairy rings, which are linked with tales of passers-by that were lured away to the land of the fairies.
As such, these fairy rings were “doorways into other dimensions ”, which is another theory proposed about what crop circles might represent.
In German-speaking Europe, fairy rings are known as Hexenringe, or “witches rings ”, stemming from an old medieval belief that the rings represented places where witches would have their gatherings.
In English folklore, fairy rings were said to be caused by elves, fairies or pixies dancing in a circle, wearing down the grass beneath their feet. These mythical creatures, of course, are often associated with mysterious balls of light.
THE MOWING DEVIL
You may remember that our BBC article mentioned a woodcut of "the Devil mowing a field into patterns," but it didn't go into detail. This is a fascinating chapter in the history of crop circles, documented as happening in 1678.
In short, a farmer was trying to hire someone to harvest his crops, and the laborer wanted to charge more than the farmer could afford. The farmer angrily chased off the laborer, saying something like "I'd rather have the Devil cut my crops down than pay your price!"
That night a very bright light appeared over the crops — "as if it had been all aflame" — which the farmer clearly noticed, and the next day a crop circle had appeared — "so neatly mow'd… that no Mortal Man was able to do the like".
The farmer attributed this phenomenon to the so-called "Mowing Devil." Here is an actual image of the woodcut, complete with a picture of what the crop circle looked like, along with an illustration of the alleged devil. After the image we have a transcript of what it actually says:
THE MOWING-DEVIL: OR, STRANGE NEWS OUT OF HARTFORD-SHIRE.
Being a True Relation of a Farmer, who Bargaining with a Poor Mower, about the Cutting down Three Half Acres of Oats:
Upon the Mower's asking too much, the Farmer swore That the Devil should Mow it rather than He.
And so it fell out, that very Night, the Crop of Oat shew'd as if it had been all of a flame: but next Morning appear'd so neatly mow'd by the Devil or some Infernal Spirit, that no Mortal Man was able to do the like.
Also, How the said Oats ly now in the Field, and the Owner has not Power to fetch them away.
Licensed, August 22nd, 1678.
You can see this was taken at least semi-seriously at the time. This was before the rise of scientific materialism, where people would automatically write the farmer off as insane or misinformed.
PROFESSOR ROBERT PLOT DOCUMENTS CROP FORMATIONS IN 1600s
During this same time period, very clear, documented evidence of "crop circle" formations can be found in the records of Professor Robert Plot (December 13, 1640 — April 30, 1696).
Plot was an English naturalist, the first Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford, and the first keeper of the Ashmolean Museum.
Plot found various crop circle formations and had a rather fanciful theory of how they formed. He believed the wind was creating geometrically-perfect vortexes that then affected the crops on the ground.
In these next two illustrations he tried to draw how he thought this was happening:
Dr. Plot also found anomalies in the soil where these formations occurred. The exact same observations would be recorded over 300 years later by Dr. Gil Levengood, perhaps the most thorough modern researcher providing proof that some formations are definitely not manmade by any conventional means:
Plot examined multiple such formations and states that the soils "under all of them were much looser and dryer than ordinary, and the parts interspersed with a white hoar… much like that in mouldy bread, of a musty rancid smell, but to the tast[e] insipid." –A Natural History of Staffordshire (1686)
TOP SCIENCE JOURNAL DOCUMENTS CROP CIRCLES IN 1880
Another clear report of crop-circle activity can be found in the prestigious scientific journal Nature from 1880:
J. Rand Capron, a spectroscopist who lived in the country at Guildown near Guildford, Surrey, in the south of England, [found crop circles in 1880]. The reference is Nature, volume 22, pp 290-291, 29 July 1880.
"Visiting a neighbour's farm on Wednesday evening (21st), we found a field of standing wheat considerably knocked about, not as an entirety, but in patches forming, as viewed from a distance, circular spots.
Examined more closely, these all presented much the same character, viz., a few standing stalks as a centre, some prostrate stalks with their heads arranged pretty evenly in a direction forming a circle round the centre, and outside these a circular wall of stalks which had not suffered…"
Capron tried to explain this as the result of vortexes in the atmosphere creating perfect circles in the crops — just like Professor Robert Plot did two centuries earlier.
Some people still believe this concept, albeit with a few extra flourishes to explain some of the other mysteries.
As you are about to read in the next set of excerpts, we have independent, unique eyewitness reports from the 20th century where people actually watched crop circles forming in real time. Nothing was there except for light, sound and / or swirling wind.
More recent reports also have indicated balls of light and high-pitched noises during the night.
LATE 1940s CROP CIRCLE EYEWITNESS
Here we have the first of two testimonies confirming historical crop circle activity in the 20th century, where people actually saw it happen right in front of them:
An eye-witness case from South Wales was brought to the attention of researchers in 1991 following a letter to the Sunday Mirror. This was on farmland at Cilycwm, 6 km from Llandovery, Dyfed.
Mr William Cyril Williams wrote: "With reference to the corn circles mystery I actually witnessed one being made.
I was standing in a cornfield one morning and saw a whirlwind touching the ground and forming a circle in the corn. It was just the strength of the wind in the whirlwind that formed the circle".
The event happened in the late 1940's when he worked on his father's farm, Penfedw Farm at Cilycwm. He was then in his twenties. The area is surrounded by hills on all sides, and circles had been seen there "frequently".
On this occasion, a weekday in August, at about 10.30 to 11 in the morning [or circa 0930-10 GMT] Mr Williams had gone into the wheat field on harvesting day in advance of the cutting and binding machinery, and was crossing the middle of the field when he heard the buzzing noise of a whirlwind starting up only a few metres away.
He then saw a spinning mass of air with dust in it, and, as he watched, in a matter of "only a couple of seconds or so the wheat fell down producing a sharp-edged circle 3 to 4 metres in diameter".
It looked just like the other crop circles he had seen before, except that this one was completely flat-bottomed — whereas some of the earlier ones had stalks standing at their centres like a conical pyramid.
The vortex then died out rapidly, but during its brief lifetime (under 4 or 5 seconds) it remained at the same place.
EYEWITNESS REPORT OF CROP CIRCLE FORMING FROM 1972
This next excerpt is of a similar eyewitness report from 1972. Bryce Bond and Arthur Shuttlewood watched the crops get "pushed down" by an invisible force in a clockwise direction.
The only explanation to what might have caused this is a sound — and other witnesses have since documented hearing high-pitched chirping sounds:
Suddenly, I heard a noise. It seemed as if something pushed down the wheat. That night the air was completely still.
I looked around. The moon had just appeared, shining brightly. In front of my eyes I could see a great imprint taking shape. The wheat was forced down in a clockwise direction."
– Bryce Bond and Arthur Shuttlewood, first modern crop circles witnesses, Warminster, night of August 12, 1972
MULTIPLE EYEWITNESS REPORTS FROM THE 20TH CENTURY
This excerpt reveals an even deeper scope to the crop circle activity throughout the 20th century:
Dr Terence Meaden published eye-witness accounts of circles forming in the United Kingdom, one of which dated from the 1930s (see Further Reading).
The witness, Katherine Skin, recalled seeing two circles form on a hot August day in 1934 in Cambridgeshire.
Their appearance was preceded by a whirlwind in which stalks, seeds and dust were visible. Inside the circle she saw that some stalks had been plaited [braided].
Another witness described an event in South Wales, dating from the 1940s, and Meaden also wrote of a double ring photographed in 1960, in Gloucestershire. This was reported in the Evesham Journal and attracted quite a number of visitors.
Andrews and Delgado (see Further Reading) quote a farmer, Simon Brown, recalling circles on his farm at Headbourne Worthy almost every year since 1958.
Paul Fuller, in The Crop Watcher 14, lists a number of other 'early' circles, including reports from the Netherlands, Canada, France, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Turkey and the United States.
The list runs to some 78 items, mainly rings, simple circles or ellipses and multiple circles.
The events around Warminster in the 1960s and 1970s have been the subject of several books, notably those by Arthur Shuttlewood, a journalist who lived in the town.
Things seem to have begun on Christmas Day 1964, with a series of deafening noises, and various strange events continued into 1966.
The area became a hotspot for UFO sightings and it was during a 'sky watch' in 1972 that Shuttlewood, apparently, observed the formation of a circle in a grass field. He described a high-pitched hum and a circle being inscribed like 'the opening of a lady's fan'.

CHRONOLOGY OF FORMATIONS — AND THEIR APPARENT MEANINGS
We've already seen Alton Barnes from July 11, 1990, Barbury Castle from July 17, 1991 and the Stonehenge "Julia Set" fractal formation from July 7, 1996 — which appeared over the course of 45 minutes in broad daylight.
Now I'd like to take you through a chronology of crop formations. Bear in mind that this is not all-inclusive — in southern England alone there are often over 100 a year.
There are many other formations that are gorgeous. Sacred geometry is the most common theme that they seem to continually repeat, as there is usually extreme perfection in their execution.
In this case I want to focus on certain formations only — and show how there is an overall, unified theme being expressed. We will pick up where we left off — in the year 1996.

if you stand on the far side of the formation, facing the vista of South Field in the background, you can not see the other side of the design. It literally slopes away from you, which is quite extraordinary!

Wayland's Smithy, near Ashbury, Oxfordshire — August 9, 2005
Our current "Aztec-Mayan century" will end on December 21, 2012 or digitally 2012.973. It began 52 years ago in late 1960 or 1960.973. The Mayans assigned 52 years to their "century", because they used both 365-day and 260-day calendars. After 52 years, the two calendars would coincide. Thus 52 x 365 = 73 x 260 = 18,980 days, or 18,993 with leap years. Their ancient but sophisticated calendar was immortalized in 1479 AD by an Aztec king, who commissioned a huge rock carving known as the "Sunstone" (Figure 1), today a major cultural symbol of Mexico….
Now yet another amazing Mayan crop picture appeared on August 9, 2005 near Wayland's Smithy: again based on the ancient Sunstone motif, but with certain novel variations (Figure 3).
First and foremost, the new 2005 Mayan picture shows two different calendar dates in binary-hexadecimal format, which is a modern computer code although of universal appeal (see two diagrams below).
One coded date is "13-10-7-10-13", while the other is "14-5-11-5-14". Two broad arrows tell us in which direction left-right to read the binary code. Sixteen (2 x 8) fine lines tell us to read it in base-16, hexadecimal format. Since both series of five numbers are redundant, one might reasonably guess that the underlying calendar dates could be composed of just three numbers each as "13-10-7" or "14-5-11"
. Such three-digit dates might then represent fractional parts of our current Mayan century: where "0-0-0" would be its start, and "16-0-0" its end. Mayan Long Count uses five digits, which is perhaps why the crop artist drew his (or her) dates in that way.
The first calendar date "13-10-7" seems to be just our current date for the 2005 crop season. Thus 13 + 10/16 + 7/256 = 13.6523 out of 16.0000 for a complete Mayan century, or fractionally 0.8533 = (44.370 / 52.000),giving 44.370 years from its start in 1960.973 to yield 2005.343. The difference between this year's date 2005.343 and last year's date 2004.306 is just 1.037, or one year and 13 days.
The second calendar date of "14-5-11" yields a similar calculation of 14 + 5/16 + 11/256 = 14.3555 out of 16.0000 for a complete Mayan century, or fractionally 0.8972 = (46.655 / 52.000), giving 46.655 years from its start in 1960.973 to yield 2007.628. What could this mean? Evidently the crop artist considers a near-future date of 229 days into the year 2007 (mid-August) to be very important, for reasons about which we can only speculate at present.
Finally, the crop artist drew a "Fourth Sun" at the very centre of that Mayan 2005 picture in the form of a 15% crescent: because he or she wished to confirm that "our current Mayan century is now 85% complete", in good accord with the binary-hexadecimal value of 0.8533.
Notes: There is a nagging 13-day sloppiness somewhere in my math that I cannot pinpoint. Did the crop artist make a mistake, and not account correctly for leap years? Hence that is why we cannot say on what day exactly in mid-August 2007 something will happen. Any hexadecimal date of three digits should be accurate to within 4 days, relevant to a full Mayan century.
The crop artists apparently switched this year to binary-hexadecimal format, so they could provide us with calendar dates more accurately. Indeed, they seem to have kept the option of making a similar formation next year: just by changing the "13-10-7" date by plus-one year, and by making the crescent Sun a bit smaller.
Woolstone Hill, another crop formation made after Wayland's Smithy, in the neighbouring field, seems again to show a "Fourth Sun" at its centre, but this time as a six-pointed star. It also shows "16 boxes" around that central Sun, which are presumably the 16 hexadecimal parts of our current Mayan century, described above.
Now in that new Woolstone Hill pattern, the first 15 boxes follow a regular pattern of 90-degree-rotation between neighbouring boxes, until the very last or sixteenth box is reached; then the pattern "breaks".
This would seem to imply that the final hexadecimal "box" of our current Mayan century, namely mid-2009 to late 2012, will be different from all the rest.

· In hearings before the Senate and House, seven U.S. attorneys who were fired in late 2006 say they received inappropriate calls from Republican lawmakers or Justice Department officials regarding corruption cases they were investigating. They also say they felt pressured by the Justice Department to keep quiet about their dismissals (March 6). Attorney General Alberto Gonzales tells Senate Judiciary Committee that although the process in which U.S. attorneys were fired was flawed, the dismissals were justified.
Gonzales cites a bad memory more than 50 times when he fails to answer questions about key parts of the dismissal process (April 19).
Citing executive privilege, President Bush refuses to hand over any documents relating to the firing of U.S. prosecutors in 2006 and instructs Harriet Miers, Bush's former counsel, and Sara Taylor, the former deputy assistant to the president and White House director of political affairs, to also refuse to testify (July 9). The House Judiciary Committee votes, 22 to 17, to hold Harriet Miers and White House chief of staff Joshua Bolten in contempt for refusing to testify about the dismissals (July 25). The White House announces that Alberto Gonzales has submitted his resignation (Aug. 27).

August 15, 2006: Etchilhampton Hill, near Devizes, Wiltshire — Mayan "Lamat" Glyph
In The Mayan Factor by José Arguelles, we understand that LAMAT marks the beginning of the final AHAU cycle which includes all 13 Katuns.
This final cycle is a culmination of the Baktun of the Transformation of Matter and began in the year 1756 to be completed in the year 2012. The energy of LAMAT is to ‘Seal [the whole mind of the world] with the Star-Seed Harmony’.
LAMAT heralds a new way of living on Earth and a new experience and understanding of material life, including our own bodies. This is certainly reflected in the beautiful and elegant symmetry of this crop circle.
On top of all that, the particular shape of the formation is also found in a symbol for Mother Mary, an ancient Goddess figure, as well as a venerated Christian icon.

CROP CIRCLES GO MAINSTREAM
Up until recently, the mainstream media's approach to crop circles — if they were covered at all — was fairly dismissive, as in this Discovery article:
Crop circles have been appearing in fields all over the world for the past 30 years. They range from simple, geometric patterns to complex and carefully made compositions.
There have been suggestions that they are made by flying saucers landing and flattening the crops, or even that they are messages left by visiting aliens.
Others think they are created by microwave beams from satellites orbiting the Earth.
Other more rational explanations are that crop circles are man-made hoaxes, attempting to convince the public of extra-terrestrial life on Earth.
Some would argue why would aliens travel all the way to our planet just to flatten a few wheat fields? Why not make contact another, more easily recognisable way?
This perspective changed notably in 2008 thanks to a formation that attracted widespread media attention by having a very interesting mathematical proof in it, as we shall see.
CROP CIRCLES OF 2008
2008 may well be recorded as the most substantial year in the history of "crop circles". This was the year they hit the mainstream media with a bigger "splash" than we've ever seen before, thanks to a formation that encoded 'pi' with multiple-decimal-point accuracy.
This was widely covered by media outside the US, and in some cases even within it as well.
Barbury Castle, near Wroughton, Wiltshire — June 1, 2008
Even the bought-and-sold Neocon media world of Fox News jumped on the bandwagon for this one:
"Take the pattern and draw radial lines from the center of the central depression through each radial jump," Reed e-mailed the Earthfiles.com Web site.
"Take the smallest angle sector and call it one (1), then compare the other 10 sectors contained angle to the smallest and pick the closest single digit for the ratio. They come out as 3.141592654."
As any math geek knows, that's the first 10 digits of pi, the irrational but extremely important number that's defined as a circle's circumference divided by its diameter.
Crop-circle enthusiasts claim that's just more proof that the barley and wheat stalks have been stomped on by aliens who seem to have a special affinity for southern England.
If you're looking for a more in-depth treatment of this decoding, this mainstream English website does a fine job of explaining how it works:

JUNE 23, 2008: TIME-ENCODED PROPHECIES INCLUDING DECEMBER 21, 2012
This formation in Secklendorf, Germany, from June 23rd, gives multiple alignments – each of which could be construed as important prophecy dates we can watch for:
The deciphering of this crop formation is so complex that it is far outside the scope of this paper to go into the details. They can be found at the below link for those who are interested.
I pulled this from archive.org’s "Wayback Machine," since Crop Circle Connector commits everything to a subscriber-only archive at the end of each year:
Though we’re not going to comb through all the details of the analysis, here’s a diagram of the formation where you can see the six different focus-points that were given of varying lunar alignments:
V1 = March 27, 2009, inferior conjunction with Sun, next to Earth
V2 = January 11, 2012, superior conjunction with Sun, opposite Earth
V3 = October 29, 2010, inferior conjunction with Sun, next to Earth
V4 = August 16, 2011, superior conjunction with Sun, opposite Earth
V5 = June 6, 2012, inferior conjunction with Sun, solar transit (bright central six-pointed star)
V6 = December 21, 2012, three months before superior conjunction with Sun, far right opposite Earth (end of Long Count).
The meaning of the six-sided symbol in the center of this formation would only become obvious in a formation from 2011 — and the events that began to transpire thereafter.
All of this will be presented in sequential order as we go on.

JULY 15, 2008: AVEBURY MANOR SHOWS PLANETARY ALIGNMENT FOR DECEMBER 21, 2012
On July 15, 2008, we had a formation in Avebury Manor that directly, bluntly and unabashedly laid out the alignment of the planets on December 21st, 2012 — the end-date of the Mayan Calendar.
Now that the 'Circlemakers' had generated some PR, they wanted to maximize its value and deliver a clear message: "The end of the Mayan Calendar is far from just another ordinary date. Something is going to happen!"
With my own work adding to the weight of data — inspired by the Law of One series — we could append this statement with, "…Something wonderful!"
This formation encoded alignments in all three major sections of the Solar System for December 21st, 2012. First, the inner planets, as you can see here:
Then we have the central planets and their corresponding images, as this next graphic shows:
Lastly, we also have an alignment in the outer planets, as this final graphic reveals. The final planet appears to be a stylized version of Pluto, except that it is out of its expected orbital position.
No one is entirely sure what this 'dislocation' of Pluto means, but as represents is the planet of great, revolutionary change in astrology — a true journey through the underworld — this could be a sign of the monumental importance of this time:
JULY 23, 2008: ADDITIONS ARE MADE TO THE BASIC IMAGE
On July 23, 2008, the Circlemakers returned after this formation sustained some damage — and substantially changed the basic layout. A second circle was drawn next to the first, with a variety of odd glyphs surrounding it.
The first circle now had a series of straight lines drawn through it — strongly suggesting Gerald Hawkins' mathematical proofs had done in the 1990s, showing the relationship between geometry and musical frequencies, which I have written about in the CONVERGENCE book series on this website:
Even more importantly, the size of the Sun in the original 2012 diagram was now much, much larger — encompassing the orbits of Venus and Mercury:
Sadly, the mainstream media dropped the ball — and in fact, we are the only alternative media source that covered this 2012 formation with any depth.
If that were the extent of the story, this would still be a rather involved piece… but it goes far, far beyond this initial starting point.
This was only one of two different crop formations that directly flagged the Mayan Calendar end-date this year by direct astronomical timing methods.
AUGUST 14, 2008: REMARKABLE "PENTAGON" FORMATION
Barton Le Clay, Barton Springs, Bedfordshire
On August 14th, 2008, one of the most blatant messages ever given in a crop formation appeared. In context, it seems directly related to the 2012 prophetic dates that had already been given.
Look first and tell me what you think this is:
Take another look, and pay attention to the design elements, and what they could symbolize:
If you still haven’t seen it yet, look at this black-and-white diagram, where it really stands out:
What we are seeing — very clearly — is a symbolic image of the Pentagon, in Washington, DC, with an inscribed pentacle inside itself.
While the pentacle is not necessarily a negative, as it just represents a form of geometry, we see five "blades" inside the pentagon that VERY clearly resemble the blades of a swastika.
This gives a strong suggestion that the events of 2012 — so blatantly forecasted with planetary alignments in Avebury Manor 2008 and Secklendorf 2008 — would involve this connection becoming public… on a mass level.
Our friends at the Crop Circle Connector really didn’t see this yet, as the writeup illustrates. They got the Pentagon clearly, but did not see the blades of the swastika. Most people are probably not accustomed to ‘going there’:
This simply remarkable formation takes one’s breath away. It has two wonderfully tapered and delicate crescents surrounding the mysterious pentagram.
The Pentagram was very important to the Pythagoreans, who were a secret society. This symbol runs through history in many mystical ways.
It also appears in Masonic regalia, the layout of Washington DC, and is the basic design for one of the largest buildings on earth, The Pentagon.
AUGUST 15, 2008: CELTIC CROSS WITH YIN-YANG AND DNA ELEMENTS
Etchilhampton Hill, near Devzies, Wiltshire — August 15, 2008
In this next formation, a clearly religious message appears — showing there is an answer to the crises we were demonstrated from the previous day’s formation.
You will obviously see that this is a cross, but there are clear Celtic elements within it. Furthermore, the repeated suggestion of yin-yang formations illustrate the cross-platform religious nature of this formation.
The DNA double helix is also strongly implied in this formation, and there have been many others where it was even more blatant than this.
To me, it’s not flagging any one religion but rather showing us that we are indeed seeing the rebirth of the Christ Consciousness / Higher Self as a result of these changes and upheavals:
Here’s the writeup from Crop Circle Connector:
Could this be sign of hope from above in these troubled times?
This huge Celtic cross appeared in a field on Etchilhampton Hill in Wiltshire. The size is over eight tram lines in width and about twice as long in length.
Within the cross is spiral imagery which takes us back to ancient times. Very impressive indeed.
SEPTEMBER 24, 2008: WALL STREET / WORLD TRADE CENTER / CRUCIFIX
Broad Hinton, Winterbourne Bassett, Wiltshire — September 24th, 2008
Finally, as it became clear the economy was getting worse, and everyone started panicking, we had yet another very clear symbol appear in crops.
This time the crop was corn — maize to be precise — which is a very unusual crop to see a formation like this appear in.
The researchers at Crop Circle Connector are saying this is the most complex formation ever to appear in maize:
We clearly see what looks like four skyscrapers from the top down. Any two of them together could easily be the Twin Towers that fell at the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Here again, the formation seems to be talking about a collapse in "world trade", but this time we’re dealing with a financial collapse rather than the damage of physical property.
The punchline, as you’ve undoubtedly already seen, is that these four skyscrapers from the top down also clearly form the image of a Christian crucifix.
Again, to me, this shows that there are powerful synchronistic forces at play insuring that even though these events appear negative to some, they are in fact a vital part of defeating the New World Order and restoring peace to our planet.
BLACK MONDAY — MORE HIDDEN SYMBOLISM
Yet another blatant symbol of synchronicity guiding our way occurred on "Black Monday" — September 29, 2008.
This was when we had the largest-ever collapse of the Dow since the aftermath of 9/11 — a precipitous drop — on the same day that the 700-billion-dollar bailout bill, as it originally stood, failed to pass:
Exactly how far down did it go? Why, 777 points, to be exact — a number that symbolically means "perfect (3) divinity (7)!"
777 is also what shows up when you hit the jackpot on a casino slot machine.
Therefore, the deeper implication of this message is that the entire economy is indeed a gigantic Ponzi scheme — nothing but a very elaborate casino in which money is being constantly stolen from everyone.
Even in the midst of this terrible problem, we are being guided… by Perfect Divinity.
Admittedly, he scope of synchronicity involved in coordinating the buying and selling activity of so many people is seemingly unthinkable.
However, I believe the higher, positive ET forces we are dealing with are incredibly sophisticated — much more so than ETs flying around in saucers — and can actually accomplish such stunning feats.
I am directly tackling these "Big Questions" with compelling scientific evidence in The Synchronicity Key, my sequel to Source Field Investigations — and am finishing up this work right now for an impending release this fall.

August 10: Woodborough Hill near Alton Barnes, Wiltshire — The Owl
The owl is one of the 20 so called Solar Seals of the Tzolkin, the holy galactic calendar of the Maya. To be able to understand the significance of the Owl on this day, it’s necessary to get a deeper insight in the Tzolkin….
Essential is that in the past only the classical Tzolkin had the described harmonic relationship with the Tun-cycle (for reasons that go beyond the scope of this article this was the case until the year 1863).
However in new age the harmonic relationship with the Tun-cycle will be restored for all the 3 existing Tzolkin-cycles.
As will be explained this formation refers to the harmonic relationship of the classical Tzolkin in the past on the one hand and the renewed harmonized relationship of all 3 Tzolkin-cycles in connection with the Tun-cycle and other cycles in the near future.
The harmonic relationship of the 3 Tzolkin-counts with the Tun-cycle and Vinals will be restored after the leap day of 2012:
It’s important to note that the effect of the day out of time on the 29th February 2012 is highly exceptional referring the classical count: this never happened in the past and will never happen again in future.
It’s the result of the harmonization of the 3 Tzolkin-counts in the year 2008. The diagram further clarifies that in the time of the classical Maya, the Tun-cycle and the Vinals were completed by the Solar Seal Ahau (the sun) of the classical count, in near future this will be the case referring the Cosmic Count.
However referring the classical count the Tun-cycle and Vinals will be completed by the Owl. The owl can see in the darkness and grasps everything that moves in the darkness.
Through this drive, a new start can be made next cosmic year.
This figure also shows that during the period from March 2008 until March 2012, regarding the Cosmic count the Vinals start with the white wind and this is an important reason why already 2 times a formation arose near a white windmill in 2008 and 2009!
You might expect that this formation arose on a day for which the signature of the Owl applies. This isn’t the case. However it’s notable that the formation arose on the day that it’s 10 years ago that the so called eight Underworld started.
This is a short age of 13 x 360 days (see also westoverton
). One of the aspects of this age is the intensified tension between East and West. This resulted in terrorist attacks, amongst others.
The owl of the formation has 13 feathers underneath the eyes and 15 feathers above the eyes, making a total of 28 feathers. The 13 and 28 feathers turn out to have a relationship with the so called draconic moon, the moon in relation with the lunar nodes that cause lunar and solar eclipses.
This has a close relationship with the start of the eight Underworld as this was going along with a solar eclipse on the eleventh August 1999.
In this sense it’s very notable that the terrorist attacks on the ninth of September 2001 took place during a conjunction of the moon with the North node of the moon. This was also the case during the solar eclipse of the eleventh August 1999.
The 28 feathers relate to the exactly 28 draconic months between both events. According to the classical Tzolkin, the terrorist attacks took place during a so called “wave of the Owl”, which means that 5 days before, the start of the cycle of the 13 Tones of Creation corresponded with the Owl.
The 28 feathers can still be interpreted in a similar way regarding another terrorist attack. When we count back 28 draconic months from the day of the formation, this falls on the ninth July 2007.
The day before, the eight July 2007 has a signature of “10 Owl” regarding the Dreamspell-count. However this was about 2 years after the 7 / 7 bombings in London in 2005.
The signature of the 7 / 7 bombings according to the classical Tzolkin was also “10 Owl”! So there is a relationship between the classical count and the Dreamspell-count almost precise 2 years later.
This will also be the case in new age. It’s interesting to note that in accordance with the 36 feathers that surround the Owl, 10 Owl corresponds with day 36 (“Kin 36”) of the Tzolkin.
These bombings had a close relationship with the very end of the eight Underworld on the first June 2012, as the period in between equals 7 x 360 + 1 days.
The difference of 1 day is caused by the exceptional effect of the leap day regarding the classical Tzolkin in the year 2012.
The Solar Seal of both dates (the 7th July 2005 and the 1st June 2012) regarding the classical Tzolkin is the Owl. The background of this end-date you find here: www.33mm.eu/en/
This brings up the question what is the relationship between the owl and the terrorist attacks? The owl grasps everything that moves in the darkness. However this is often projected on the outer world and one is blind for the own dark motivations.
Apart from that the Western imperialistic system isn’t viable on the long run, as this system pushes the large majority of the worlds population in an ever increasing poverty and it’s the owl that understands this and takes measurements to stop this.
On the other hand we can also recognize the unbalanced male-driven characteristics in the terrorist attacks. These have a relationship with the masculine character of the classical Tzolkin-count.
Apart from the terrorist attacks, the 13 feathers of the formation also relate to 13 draconic months. When we count back 13 draconic months from the day of the formation this turns out to be the 20th August 2008.
This is a very special date, as this date has the same signature as the end of the Vinal as shown in the diagram above, the 13th March 2012.
As this will be the first time that a Vinal is completed with yellow Solar Seals regarding the 3 Tzolkin-counts and as this is also a day on which Venus, Jupiter and the black moon are conjunct, this day can be considered as a day on which a widened consciousness will occur and we will be better able to see in the darkness, like the owl.
As the 20th August 2008 is characterized by the same signature amongst others, on this day on a subconscious level people already got the touch of this. This was also a date that has to be considered as a blue print that influences the future.
It’s no coincidence that within a month after the 20th August 2008 the first bank, the Lehman Brothers got bankrupt on the 15th of September.
The 20th August 2008 and the 13th March 2012 have the signature “6 Owl” regarding the classical Tzolkin. However apart from that, the so called “Guiding Power” of all 3 counts relate to the Owl.
The effect of an equal guiding power is typical for the harmonization of the Tzolkin-counts….
Still one question has to be answered: why has the owl been created in an adjacent field of the formation of the light body of the Earth, that appeared on the 22nd July?
The reason is that this formation refers to the moment that the sun is above the tetrahedron of the Earth.
In the year 2012 this is exactly the case on the 17th and 18th May, just before the occurrence of a solar eclipse on the 20th May (see also Woodborough
Regarding the classical Tzolkin the 17th May 2012 has exactly the same signature as the terrorist attacks of the 11th September 2001, precise 15 Tzolkin-cycles earlier!
June 23, 2010: Savernake Forest, near Marlborough, Wiltshire
June 25, 2010: White Sleet Hill, near Mere, Wiltshire
Whitesheet Hill and Savernake are both connected as pair; they were done in an unusual progression for me, this time.
I say this, as usually there seems to be a linear progression from one to the next, like A,B,C and D with outcomes for individual CC’s then there is a “bang” at the end, like a conclusion to all of them.
However for Whitesheet Hill it forced me to look backwards at the previous CC, that of Savernake to understand both. With the expediency of needing to get quick answers on CC’s we may tend to quickly “gloss” over then race to the next one.
The CC makers seem aware of this “impatience” aspect, I would say there is no hurry; we aren’t going anywhere too soon. Please read my Savernake Forest interpretation to fully incorporate both.
I will double post this illustration for those who missed the previous interpretation at Savernake forest CC.
One can see the “Sun” inside the cube right in the center there surrounded by 6 more cubes incorporating the number 144 (small circles) surrounding the Sun. This number has come up 3 times in 3 previous CC’s.
Yarnbury CC, Whitesheet hill, and now with a further inference to the 144,000 in the Vale of Pewsey. The 144,000 can only be triggered or driven by the heart as it is a reference to “heart-mind”.
The small circles then split into 12 x 12 (some hollow, some solid). This amplifies the “light” number of 144 small circles “on the outside” of the Sun symbol.
If we multiply the 12’s (12 solid, 12 hollow) in one six cube, we end up with 144 again. So we have a holographic inference here as each part reflects all the rest of the other parts. 144 being the designated number for absolute inner light.
The 18 peripheral circles again mimic the previous CC at Vale on Pewsey (it also had 18 radial lines which eventually decoded to a “sunburst” at dawn theme).

MY FINAL APPEARANCE ON 'ANCIENT ALIENS'
On New Year's Eve 2010, I was working feverishly to finish the final round of edits and rewrites for my epic masterwork, The Source Field Investigations.
I was tired and wanted to go to sleep by about 11:30 — but then I was prompted to do some additional Internet surfing.
I then came across a post from Disclose.tv — where they featured a clip of my final appearance on 'Ancient Aliens' for Season Two — in the episode entitled "Alien Contacts".
This is only the end of a great episode, and I highly recommend you see the whole thing. Click here to watch it on hulu.com if you live in the US.
Though I do not support piracy in any way, you obviously can do a Google Video search on "Ancient Aliens Alien Contacts" and see what comes up:
I was featured in seven out of ten episodes for Season Two, and was given the honor of delivering the big finale for the season — which may have been the final message of the entire show if it does not get renewed. Here it is:
I had already watched this episode on my mother's DVR system shortly after it came out, so this was more of a review.
AN AMAZING STORY
It was an amazing story. One of the producers called me, gave me these coordinates, and asked me if there was anything important about this location.
I asked them where they got this from — but I was told I needed to answer the question first. It was important.
I actually started laughing, thinking they were playing some kind of a game with me. I wondered if there were intelligence guys in the background who fed them this, and wanted to see how 'smart' I was.
As soon as I opened the email and looked, I knew it was the mythical land of Hy Brazil.
The first time I heard about this island was when Graham Hancock mentioned it in our epic "Setting History Free" interview together, which you can watch on my YouTube channel, http://www.youtube.com/davidwilcock333.
I knew Hy Brazil had been drawn on ancient maps — and we now know the maps were correct. Prior to the last Ice Age, there was land above water in that exact spot, with the exact shape it was given on the ancient maps.
When I found out this message had been delivered in 1980, in binary code, to the mind of a military man at Rendelsham Forest, I was stunned.
EXPLORING THE MESSAGE
The other parts of the binary-code message were: EXPLORATION HUMANITY CONTI FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE.
The producers assume there should be an 'of' between "Exploration" and "Humanity" and that "Conti" should be "Continuous." The soldier may not have remembered all the code he was originally given, in a sort of hypnotic trance.
My point on the show was that these ETs appear to be giving us a message — saying they wish to return and walk among us openly — "for planetary advance."
The ETs, not us, may be the 'humanity' they are speaking of in their message — on a journey of 'exploration'. "Conti" could also mean 'Continuum', as in humanity is now exploring the time-space continuum:
EXPLORATION HUMANITY CONTINUUM FOR PLANETARY ADVANCE
It could also mean that humanity is a 'continuum' throughout the Galaxy — and they are now exploring the world of their relatives here on Earth.
Clearly there is a bold, direct reference to an 'Ascension'-type event here — the "Planetary Advance."
If they can indeed explore the "time continuum," then they should still be able to prove it to this very day. Little did I know how dramatically the ETs were about to prove their point.
Literally, as I watched myself delivering this important message on Ancient Aliens, my friend was standing in amazement as five slow-moving red UFOs drifted over the ground — just a few miles away from where I was staying.
They did not all travel at the same speed. They were about 40-50 feet away from where our friend was standing, about 25 feet above the ground. They were orbs of bright red light that did not appear to be much larger than the size of a basketball.
One of them zipped away at an impossible speed before they all just winked out of existence.
As soon as the above video clip ended, the phone was ringing — and our friend, who I had just met with days before, breathlessly described this sighting that had literally just happened.
I remember thinking it was 'rude' that someone had called us that late — before I knew what was going on.
This friend later returned to the same spot and found a teenage kid who was also there, hoping to see more. He had seen about twenty of them — and the phenomenon had already been going on before our friend started witnessing it.
There was no skeptical explanation for this that would fit. It was highly bizarre. They made no noise. There was also an amazing feeling in the area as they drifted along.
To make the story sound even more crazy and implausible, a few days later my mother and I passed this same friend, in the car, at the exact spot where the UFOs had appeared.
None of us had any idea that this might happen. At least not consciously.
My mother did not want to get stuck behind a school bus, and turned down a road that was more out of the way for where we were going. This is the only reason why we ended up bumping into each other.
This also happened to be the road where the sighting had taken place. My mother intended to show me the exact location where the five red orbs had hovered, roughly 25 to 30 feet above a farmer's field.
I was stunned to look into the eyes of this same friend, passing us in a car, when we got there. It was very sobering. It has taken me a while to be able to talk about this because of how it makes me feel as a person.
The first massive bird die-off, which has got the entire world thinking about HAARP and asking questions, occurred within one hour of when this stunning synchronicity originally occurred on New Year's Eve.
THIS IS AN EVOLVING STORY
This all happened while I was finishing my book and we were post-producing our epic Access Your Higher Self video series at the same time.
This is a game-changer for us. We've never done anything like this before. And I believe it will have a very significant impact as people see it, realize how amazing it is, and spread the word.
By practicing these techniques, which I have finally disclosed after a fifteen-year embargo, you can significantly increase the speed with which 'Ascension'-type events begin happening in your life — and the intensity.
In 2002, my brother had a blue orb visit him, expand into what looked like a Stargate on his ceiling, and give him an intelligent message while he was meditating:
"The Ascension your brother is writing about will not happen all at once. It is a personal process of awakening — with sudden moments of profound change along the way. The effects are stunning, inspiring and deeply transformational. You are now enjoying the first of these experiences."
Michael had this experience as a direct result of following a deep meditation practice and reading inspirational literature similar to what we have here on this site. The voice was clear and audible in his mind; he had no difficulty in hearing it.

Klaatu, impressed by the Gettysburg Address
inscription, queries Bobby for the greatest person living in the world. Bobby suggests a leading American scientist, Professor Jacob Barnhardt (Sam Jaffe
), who lives in Washington, D.C. Bobby takes Klaatu to Barnhardt's home, but the professor is absent. Klaatu enters and adds a key mathematical equation to an advanced problem on the professor's blackboard, and then leaves his contact information with the suspicious housekeeper.
Later, government agents escort Klaatu to see Barnhardt. Klaatu introduces himself and warns the professor that the people of the other planets have become concerned for their own safety after human beings developed atomic power
. Klaatu declares that if his message goes unheeded, "Planet Earth will be eliminated." Barnhardt agrees to arrange a meeting of scientists at Klaatu's ship and suggests that Klaatu give a demonstration of his power. Klaatu returns to his spaceship the next evening to implement the idea, unaware that Bobby has followed him.
Bobby tells the unbelieving Helen and Tom what has transpired, but not until Tom finds a diamond on the floor of Klaatu's room do they begin to accept his story. When Tom takes the diamond for appraisal, the jeweler informs him it is unlike any other on Earth.
Klaatu finds Helen at her workplace. She leads him to an unoccupied elevator which mysteriously stops at noon, trapping them together. Klaatu admits he is responsible, tells Helen his true identity, and asks for her help. A montage sequence
shows that Klaatu has neutralized all electric power
everywhere around the planet except in situations that would compromise human safety, such as hospitals and airplanes.
After the thirty-minute blackout ends, the manhunt for Klaatu intensifies and Tom informs authorities of his suspicions. Helen is very upset by Tom's betrayal of Klaatu and breaks off their relationship. Helen and Klaatu take a taxi to Barnhardt's home; en route, Klaatu instructs Helen that, should anything happen to him, she must tell Gort "Klaatu barada nikto
". When they are spotted, Klaatu is shot by military personnel. Helen heads to the spaceship. Gort awakens and kills two guards before Helen can relay Klaatu's message. Gort gently deposits her in the spaceship, then goes to fetch Klaatu's corpse. Gort then revives Klaatu while the amazed Helen watches. Klaatu explains that his revival is only temporary; even with their advanced technology, they cannot truly overcome death, that power being reserved for the "Almighty Spirit."
Klaatu steps out of the spaceship and addresses the assembled scientists, explaining that humanity's penchant for violence and first steps into space have caused concern among other inhabitants of the universe who have created and empowered a race of robot enforcers including Gort to deter such aggression. He warns that if the people of Earth threaten to extend their violence into space, the robots will destroy Earth, adding, "The decision rests with you." He enters the spaceship and departs….
In a 1995 interview, producer Julian Blaustein explained that Joseph Breen
, the film censor
installed by the Motion Picture Association of America
at the Twentieth Century Fox studios, balked at the portrayal of Klaatu's resurrection
and limitless power.
At the behest of the MPAA
, a line was inserted into the film; when Helen asks Klaatu whether Gort has unlimited power over life and death, Klaatu explains that he has only been revived temporarily and "that power is reserved to the Almighty Spirit."
Of the elements that he added to Klaatu's character, screenwriter Edmund North said, "It was my private little joke. I never discussed this angle with Blaustein or Wise because I didn't want it expressed. I had originally hoped that the Christ comparison would be subliminal."
The fact that the question even came up in an interview is proof enough that such comparisons did not remain subliminal, but they are subtle enough that it is not immediately obvious to all viewers which elements were intended to compare Klaatu to Christ.
For example, when Klaatu escapes from the hospital, he steals the clothing of a "Maj. Carpenter," carpentry being the profession Jesus
learned from his father Joseph.
Furze Knoll, Bishops Cannings, Wiltshire — August 6, 2011
Temple Farm, near Rockley, Wiltshire — August 7, 2011 – Self-Referential Time Coordinates
Ternary Code – Also Looks Like ATLAS Particle Detector at Cern
The new crop picture at Temple Farm clearly shows a code in ternary base-3 for two dates of August 7, 2011 or August 7, 2012, although that does not explain its significance.
Clare Kingston and Jack Sullivan have both suggested that the crop image shown at Temple Farm might represent a national English synchrotron at Harwell, called the “Diamond Light Source”. While investigating their hypothesis, I have made a series of remarkable discoveries.
First, the crop picture shown at Temple Farm actually resembles an ATLAS subatomic particle detector in CERN, located at the Large Hadron Collider:
Current theories of subatomic physics use several codes in ternary base-3 for the number of quarks in any baryon, or the number of colours for any quark. This is surely why our crop artist, in the context of both ATLAS and UA1 detectors, used a ternary code to provide two dates of August 7, 2011 or August 7, 2012. Those two dates define a period of one year in which physicists from CERN might discover the Higgs particle, as discussed at a press conference on July 25, 2011….
As reported earlier (see slides at the top of this page), the major code at Temple Farm was written in ternary base-3 as 021 22 01 202 1 1. That series of numbers converts to 7 8 01 20 1 1 in decimal base-10 (see www.mathsisfun.com
). Such decimal numbers match a calendar date of 07-08-2011 or August 7, 2011 in the early morning hours of 0100 when that crop picture appeared.
America’s Serious Crime Rate Lowest in 48 Years
Stocks Plunge as More Signs of Economic Weakness Emerge
NEW YORK — Just when Wall Street seemed to have settled down, a barrage of bad economic reports collided with fresh worries about European banks Thursday and triggered a global sell-off in stocks.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 419 points – a return to the wild swings that gripped the stock market last week.
Stocks were only part of a dramatic day across the financial markets. The price of oil fell $5, gold set another record, the 10-year Treasury hit its lowest yield, and the average mortgage rate fell to its lowest in at least 40 years.
The selling began in Asia, where Japanese exports fell for a fifth straight month, and continued in Europe, where bank stocks were hammered because of worries about debt problems there, which have proved hard to contain.
On Wall Street, the losses wiped out much of the roughly 700 points that the Dow had gained over five days.
The Worst Stock Market Collapses Since the Great Depression
'After the US downgrade the S&P index fell 6.66% while the Dow Jones fell 5.55%
On Monday, 8/08 2011 the Standard & Poors stock index fell by the Satanic number of 6.66% while the Dow Jones average fell 5.55%. During the “Lehman shock,” of September 29, 2008, the Dow Jones index fell by $777 (indicating it is a casino) while the S & P fell by 8.8% (the Asian lucky number). There is high level financial warfare going on. The good guys are winning.'

Dow Down 5.55%, S&P 6.66%
Wall Street dropped deeper Monday as investors’ selling frenzy intensified in the wake of the Standard & Poor’s downgrade of the United States. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 634.76 points, or 5.56 percent, to 10,809.85. The S&P 500 shed 79.92 points, or 6.66 percent, to 1,119.46. Nasdaq dropped 174.72 points, or 6.90 percent, to 2,357.69.
It was the biggest loss for the Dow since the 2008 economic crisis.
Are We Heading for a Second Global Financial Crisis?
How far are we from #gfc2
? For those not aware, #gfc2 is the Twitter hashtag used for "global financial crisis 2". And the question I ask is a real one.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog wondering
whether July 2011 felt like July 1914. And then along came a Greek deal, and now a US debt deal, and you might presume I had been prematurely melodramatic.
I wish that were true; I very much doubt it is.

Windmill Hill, August 6, 2009 Crop Circle Targets December 2, 2008
The inner ring of planetary symbols at Windmill Hill gives a date of December 2, 2008 (one year before December 2, 2009)
To conclude, let us discuss briefly two rings of planetary symbols which were shown at Windmill Hill on August 6, 2009. They might be expected to provide detailed information about some upcoming cometary outburst, but have been hard to interpret with confidence so far.
Now after further study, we can state confidently that the inner ring at Windmill Hill shows a symbol for Earth and Moon, accompanied by two large circles for Jupiter and Saturn, plus two medium-sized circles for Venus and Mars. All five of those symbols then code (by means of their orbital locations) for a date of December 2, 2008….

Windmill Hill 2 – July 26, 2011 – Self-Referential, 10/28/11 and 12/21/12!
A large and amazing crop picture appeared at Windmill Hill on July 26, 2011, yet until now no one has figured out what it means? Using an excellent program from the web (see www.pauahtun.org/Calendar/tools.html), we have been able to decode that new crop picture in a complete and convincing fashion. It shows three dates in the Mayan Long Count calendar for July 26, 2011 (when the crop picture appeared), October 28, 2011 (end of the Mayan Tzolkin on 13 Ahau), or December 23, 2012 (end of the Mayan Long Count on December 23, 2012).
This crop picture therefore supports the idea of Calleman that there will be a second “end date” to the Mayan Tzolkin calendar on October 28, 2011, as well as a traditional “end date” to the Mayan Long Count calendar on December 23, 2012 (see www.calleman.com or question_end_date).
Three other crop formations of similar appearance from East Kennett on May 17 and June 22, 2011, or West Kennett on July 25, 2011, also show similarities in date to the information coded at Windmill Hill. Thus we may consider all four crop pictures to be part of the same set, and far beyond the possibility of human fakery….

Roundway Hill 2 July 25th Indicates Pineal Gland / Solar Energy Connection
[Roundway 1 showed the structure of melatonin. Roundway 2 may be an illustration of the pineal gland secreting melatonin.]
2. There could be changes in the sun which could affect human's pineal gland (Ovum-sperm in a fertilizing state). It gives hope that changes to the pineal gland could be on the positive side.
1. If we calculate the total no. of spots, they fall some where in the range of 46 – 48. The exact figure couldn't be identified in the CC photo. The total no. of Sun-Spots on 25th July 2011 also counts to 46 (1 or 2 sun spots could always be missed as stated by NASA) depending on angle of approach of observatory.
Please refer to www.spaceweather.com
2. A new coronal hole was discovered on 24th July exactly at the same position as shown in CC. Pls note that CC makers have drawn sun symbol in their messages quite identical to the Roundway Hill -2 formation albeit they seem to represent Ovum & Corona Radiata as well. So could it be some solar anomalies never experienced before. Well recently saw an article that scientists are baffled by the new particles from the sun which appears to have different radioactive decay rate than normal. This clearly violates conventional physics & all it's laws. Scientist are blaming neutrinos (Sun plasma particles which don't interact with matter) for this..!! We had fairly accurate solar cycles data of at least 100 yrs & neutrinos were always there. Why Uncle neutrino is kicking butts now?? It's clear scientists are just blind shooting.
3. Though sceptical, I also feel, the spots also represent sort of timeline for the event. If you note carefully, every alternate spot is vacant (flattened down crop) & occupied (standing crop). It could be associated with earth's spin for "day & night". If there are 46 days & night, the event could happen next month only. Or just trying too much…

Wikileaks UFO Cable
New secret UFO Wikileaks cable revealed
A source from within the inner circle of the Wikileaks team has confidentially leaked to All News Web the content of a State Dept cable, concerning UFO affairs, that Wikileaks has declined to upload onto their website.
The cable states: "It is critical all embassy staff understand that they are not to discuss under any circumstance concerns DOD has with UFOs entering orbit, once again the seriousness of this matter cannot be overstated"
The cable was sent on 9 November, 2005 by the State Dept to a diplomat connected to the US embassy in Kiev, Ukraine. As it implies, the State Dept was concerned with diplomats with loose tongues chatting about UFOs at cocktail parties and conceding that the US does allocate resources to the matter.
Due to the fact that UFO and alien affairs fall within the absolute highest level of secrecy and security clearance it is hardly surprising that Julian Assange has chosen, as a safety measure, not to reveal such information.
Editor''s note: It appears that while our Governments are deeply worried about the bubble bursting on the way they do business behind closed doors they are taking no chances at all on the public's bubble bursting on the alien and UFO issue.
Our record on the Wikileaks UFO connection is good. The initial question posed to Assange on the UFO issue was asked by an avid All News Web reader from Germany and we were informed by him with seconds of Assange's response. We have received many emails on the matter since then, however this has been the first piece of information of real interest.
China Military Official Says Human ETs Live Among Us
Photo Caption: Sun Shili shows off his drawings of extraterrestials in human guise.
Chinese scientists also say that aliens live among humans. This includes Sun Shili, a retired foreign ministry official who is now president of the Beijing UFO Research Society who also concludes that waixingren (extraterrestrials) are living among us…
According to the highly-accredited Shen Shituan, an actual rocket scientist, president of Beijing Aerospace University and honourary director of the government-supported China UFO Research Association, every report of an alien encounter is worth investigating.
''Some of these sightings are real, some are fake and with others its unclear,'' said Shen Shituan, a real rocket scientist, president of Beijing Aerospace University and honorary director of the China UFO Research Association. ''All these phenomena are worth researching.''
Research [ethically-based] into UFO's could help spur new forms of high-speed travel, unlimited sources of non-polluting and non-fossil fuel based energy and faster-growing crops, claims Sun Shili, president of a government-approved UFO Research Association (membership 50,000)…
In June 1994 Zhao Guo and two other farm workers, working at Red Flag logging camp saw something unusual on nearby Mount Pheonix.
The complex and bizarre encounter that followed involved Meng being hit by a beam of light, as well as allegedly experiencing an abduction and a sexual encounter with a female alien.
Meng Zhaoguo, a rural worker from northeast Wuchang city, explains he was 29 when he broke his marital vows for the first and only time — with an extraterrestrial of unusually robust build.
"She was 10 feet [3.03 metres] tall and had six fingers, but otherwise she looked completely like a human,'' he says. "I told my wife all about it afterwards. She wasn't too angry.''
During September 2003 Zhang Jingping, a Beijing-based UFO researcher, had psychologists and police technicians subject Zhao Guo to hypnosis and a lie detector test in Beijing. Zhang indicated the test results proved the abductee was telling the truth.
He also indicated that doctors had indicated that Zhao Guo's scars "could not possibly have been caused by common injuries or surgery." Meng Zhao Guo, a humble farmer with only 5 year's schooling, also indicated that he had never heard of UFOs or ufologists until after his experience had been reported.
In China Bill Chalker, an Australia UFO scientist, was able to have extensive discussions with Professor Chen Gongfu, the principal researcher of the Meng Zhao Guo case. He has asked me to assist in getting his research translated and available to western audiences. We are well underway to achieving that goal.
Research on Cao Gong's contact with ETs
In December 1999 Cao Gong, a middle-aged man from Beijing, indicated to Bill Chalker, that he had been abducted by aliens and flown to Qinhuangdao in their UFO. "They looked like humans but had large hands and were very pale, " Cao said…
In order to appreciate the systematized denial of human extraterrestrial contact and influences on Human civilization, which prevails in the West, one needs to appreciate that "official science" and "institutionalized religion" in the West are two different "heads" of the same body politic.
Yes, "official science" in the West talks of "evolution", and Western institutionalized religion talks of "Creation".
However, both groups have reached an apparent consensus to disregard clear evidence of verifiable contact and influences by Extraterrestrials on Human civilization. This joint denial is based upon a shared oppressive ideology, which seeks to repress critical human knowledge of cosmic associations and interactions with Off-world Human and other ET civilizations…
"Brazil, India and China are taking the lead on extraterrestrial awarness", Mihir Sen, from the India Daily reports. "They want to make sure the emerging new world understands that we have to coexist with our advanced extraterrestrial neighbours."
The Indian Daily reports that Extraterrestrials will be forced to more publically reveal themselves in order to try to avoid a planetary disaster which is projected to occur in 2012.
2007 Article on Extraterrestrial DNA in Humans
A group of researchers working at the Human Genome Project indicate that they made an astonishing scientific discovery: They believe so-called 97% non-coding sequences in human DNA is no less than genetic code of extraterrestrial life forms.
The non-coding sequences are common to all living organisms on Earth, from moulds to fish to humans. In human DNA, they constitute larger part of the total genome, says Prof. Sam Chang, the group leader…
Professor Chang had wondered if the apparently "junk Human DNA" was created by some kind of "extraterrestrial programmer". The alien chunks within Human DNA, Professor Chang further observes, "have its own veins, arteries, and its own immune system that vigorously resists all our anti-cancer drugs."
Professor Chang further stipulates that "Our hypothesis is that a higher extraterrestrial life form was engaged in creating new life and planting it on various planets. Earth is just one of them.
Perhaps, after programming, our creators grow us the same way we grow bacteria in Petri dishes. We can't know their motives – whether it was a scientific experiment, or a way of preparing new planets for colonization, or is it long time ongoing business of seedling life in the universe."…
Professor Chang further indicates that "What we see in our DNA is a program consisting of two versions, a big code and basic code."
Mr. Chang then affirms that the "First fact is, the complete 'program' was positively not written on Earth; that is now a verified fact. The second fact is, that genes by themselves are not enough to explain evolution; there must be something more in 'the game'."
"Soon or later", Professor Chang says "we have to come to grips with the unbelievable notion that every life on Earth carries genetic code for his extraterrestrial cousin and that evolution is not what we think it is."
The implications of these scientific finds would reinforce claims by other scientists and observers of having contact with 'off-world' human looking extraterrestrials.
In a 1998 interview, Clifford Stone, a retired U.S. army Sergeant who served in the U.S. Army for 22 years and allegedly participated in operations to retrieve crashed extraterrestrial ships and extraterrestrial biological entities (EBE's), revealed there were a variety of extraterrestrial races known [by various institutions and agencies]".
Dr. Salla further elaborates that "The most compelling testimonies on the different extraterrestrial races comes from 'whistleblowers' such as Sergeant Stone; and also 'contactees' who have had direct physical contact with extraterrestrials and communicated with them."
Dr. Salla further notes that Master Sergeant Bob Dean had a twenty seven year distinguished career in very senior areas of the military indicates that among the known extraterrestrials one group "looked so much like us they could sit next to you on a plane or in a restaurant and you'd never know the difference."
Apparently "Human extraterrestrial races can easily integrate with human society in the manner described by Dean and others where they can be indistinguishable from the rest of humanity." Dr. Salla corroborates…
In Dr. Salla's article "Extraterrestrials Among Us" published in October 2006, he alleges that, "There is startling evidence from a number of independent sources that 'human looking' extraterrestrial visitors have integrated with and lived in major population centres up until recently, and this is known by a select number of institutions.
Aside from whistleblower testimonies, like Sergeant Major Robert Dean, a number of private individuals claim to have encountered extraterrestrials posing as ordinary citizens in major cities around the planet.
George Adamski was the first to write about extraterrestrials secretly living among the human population. In his second non-fiction book describing his extraterrestrial contact experiences, "Inside the Flying Saucers", Adamski discussed how human looking extraterrestrials had established a presence among the human population.
"They apparently looked so much like us", Dr. Salla notes "that they could get jobs, lived in neighbourhoods, drove cars, and could blend in easily with the human population."…
In addition to seeking to learn about human values and civilization, it appears that "Human ET" visitors were conducting a low key education effort to promote awareness of their presence to a limited number of individual 'contactees'.
These "Human extraterrestrial visitors" have been represented has often having as very attractive physical characteristics, with "Human extraterrestrial females" being described as among the most beautiful women that male observers have witnessed.
The "Human extraterrestrials visitors" furthermore have been represented as going to great trouble in learning the indigenous language of the culture they are immersed in, learning how to drive and navigate on highways systems, and taking innocuous jobs over several years.
Extraterrestrials living among us appear to be operating in a manner similar to a "celestial peace corps" where they try to blend in.
They presumably wish to learn about Earth culture and behaviour; and to, perhaps, assist in passing on information to selected individuals…
If Human ETs do exist, as scholarly and other representation suggests, the saving of Humanity from its current apparent course of self-destruction, including on-going catastrophic Global Warming, may very well vitally rely on human governance systems placing its greed-driven bigotries aside, toward a constructive dialogue.
