That's easy, the ships are where all those hookers are

Ah but who came first, the sailors or the hookers?

Of course the motto at the brothel is "the customers always come first".

The wealthy elite of the world are double crossing the Arab oil producers. They are destroying the US currency and are establishing a one world currency. Lindsy Williams is 100% correct on the elitist plans. Inflation is going to the stratosphere. The big fight Americans must undertake is stopping our government from accepting a world currency. We must insist the US print it's own treasury money without interest and kill the Federal Reserve.

This movie clip from Rollover (1981) is not so far from what will really happen.

The turmoil in the Middle east is a logical progression of events precipitated by the globalists using unwitting participants such as the Egyptian Google executive. The police state oppression and food inflation are the oppressive conditions that have outraged the people into action. These are logical conditions that precipitate events and the globalists know they can use this to their advantage to bring about their world monetary government.

Listening to Lindsy Williams on Infowars radio today seems so eerily close to things I read 25 years ago in a book called, "The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy" by Herbert W Armstrong.  I'm dusting this book off now and am going to re read it.

You should listen to the rebroadcast of the Alex Jones program that will stream for the next 21 hours. Williams is on in the 3rd hour of each rebroadcast recurring every 3 hours.

I used to watch Armstrong's TV show.  He was definitely an end-times apologist.

I wonder when we're going to hear (out of Bahrain) another speech that has seemingly been written by the same person advising; Mubarak, Gaddafi, Wisconsin Gov. Walker.  Did they all outsource speechwriting to a single bangalore outfit?  One wonders.

Don't believe me, re-read the texts of the speeches.

Wow, I was unaware that people in the middle east protesting that the boot of the state and it's interminable bureaucracies was the same as interminable fat and bloated state bureaucrats rioting for the extraction of another pound of flesh from the public. Wonder how I missed that...

jmc I see what you mean,  very perceptive of you




"I am paying the price of staying here. My grandfather is Abdessalam Bouminyar (Walker), the first martyr in Khoms (outside of Greenbay), in the first battle of 1911.


I cannot bring shame to this great ancestry. I cannot leave my grandfather's grave in Marghab ( a suburb of Johnsonville). I shall die as a martyr beside him in the end. ...   I will cleanse Libya house by house if protesters do not surrender"

Perhaps, but I doubt Gov. Walker is prepared for martyrdom just yet.

Operation Iraqi-freedom is finally spilling over.  Our efforts to bring democracy to the Middle-East are bearing fruit.

This is what we wanted, right?

Yep.  Pretty much George Dubya's vision...he was a 'big picture' kinda guy, not too interested in the details.

kinda scary when everyone else agrees with it, too, isn't it?  I believe the word is no longer "vision" but "doctrine."  As in "against my will and the better wishes of all humanity I agree with you."  Now "you may thank Team America later" of course.

Dropping all sarcasm, George W. Bush did in fact call for this.   Read this speech from 2003:

"Sixty years of Western nations excusing and accommodating the lack of freedom in the Middle East did nothing to make us safe -- because in the long run, stability cannot be purchased at the expense of liberty. As long as the Middle East remains a place where freedom does not flourish, it will remain a place of stagnation, resentment, and violence ready for export. And with the spread of weapons that can bring catastrophic harm to our country and to our friends, it would be reckless to accept the status quo."

"We want a new government, the people need to rule the country."

...thought Joe Sixpack just as he was fed-up with the taxes, currency debasement, kleptocracy and leaders that didn't have an interest in him.

Then Joe woke up from a terrible nightmare and fled to the safety of Jersey Shore and the Real Housewives of Who The Fuck Cares.

In other news, isn't it cute how the PPT is trying to mitigate the sell-off in zero-volume, late-afternoon trading today?  Probably can't manage to close it green but you can bet they're going to work their little butts off to close the gap.

Where does one monitor what is going on - if anything - in Saudi Arabia?

What are the prospects of "demonstrations" there?

You gotta think AQ - or some extremist factions - would love to stir the pot there.

It would be the big one.

"The Prize."  And of course this has been "the evil goal" all along.  In other words "this isn't conspriracy" just no good, dirty nasty greed.  Think the bad guy in Die Hard "doing it all to rob a bank."  I don't know if they should all be hung or declared heros?  You tell me...I'm working on the made for TV movie.  Bruce Willis, Tom Cruise, Lenny Kravitz...all the big names.

I predict that the USA will really put their foot in a big steamin' pile when they send troops to Saudi in order to "help" the Bahraini people...

Earlier today, Art Cashin was interviewed on CNBC and talked about his concerns about Bahrain. Now, we have this hour's lead article: Profit From Panic.

Similarly, Michael Cohn at Global Arena Investment Management said he doesn't see the Middle East problems "as major" and observed, "This market just doesn't want to go down. It's got to find a reason to go down and these little flare-ups in the Middle East are not really something that are going to change strategy."

This maybe the 'real' disaster. This is a Shia/Sunni power struggle not a fight over economic or political rights in the western sense. Saudi has a majority Shia province and we've seen just how this can play out in Iraq. Nothing we can really do as there is no 'side' to take but we may have pulled the rug out from under the Bahrain royal family when we pressured them to give back the streets to the demonstrators.

If don't believe NAVCENT has any ships based in Bahrain.  The headquarters are there, but the operational assets are supplied by the other fleets (2nd, 3rd, 6th).

A consequence of the Middle East revolutions for freedoms could be acceleration of the decline of US Empire.
The efforts to re-establish stability in various countries to preserve US interests will be expensive.
US citizens will not hear about the price tags but money will be flowing.

Instead of used dog-food concepts like masses yearning to be free, the correct lens is the Shia/Sunni divide. Bahraini Shias equal Iran in Saudi eyes. Saudi forces are ready to move.

As a former expatriate Bahraini resident I am saddened by the strife tearing their nation apart.  It is a beautiful place to live and visit with beaches and bars aplenty. Athough it is an Islamic country with public calls to prayer, it does not enforce a strict form of theocracy and allows woment to work, drive, and wear mini skirts. On the weekends (Thursday & Friday) there are more Saudi than Bahraini car licenese plates on the Island and when the bars close there is a major traffic jam at the Saudi-Bahrani border inspection booths.  Ironically, just like my Canadian hometown on the US border.

It has a half elected parliament under the executive direction of the King, kind of like Hong Kong. It has one of the better forms of governement in the Middle East but is not perfect. The imperfection is the Sunni King's preference for Sunni's over the majority Shi'ites.  The Shi'ite resentment has always been there there but was not a huge priority as everyone's pockets were flush with cash. When I was there, a cable hung bridge probably costing a billion plus was being constructed across the bay just to cut the commute time to the US base from 25 minutes to 10 minutes.  Apparantly the Shi'ite resentment has increased in intensity for whatever reasons since I repatriated myself 10 years ago. Bahrain is the Poland of the Middle East it has been invaded and conquered by the English, the Dutch, India, Iran twice, and currently under the Arab's 2nd kick at the can.  Whatever unfolds the Sh'ites will still be there.  Given the intolerable protester deaths, the King should quit while ahead and accept the oppositions call for a parliamentary democracy with the King as a figure head government representative like the Queen of England. That is a sweet deal as Bahrain has way better beaches than England.
