The Paul Craig Roberts Dilemma: World War Or The End Of The Dollar

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Paul Craig Roberts via The Institute for Political Economy,

Is the US or the World Coming to an End?
It will be one or the other

2014 is shaping up as a year of reckoning for the United States.

Two pressures are building on the US dollar. One pressure comes from the Federal Reserve’s declining ability to rig the price of gold as Western gold supplies shrivel and market knowledge of the Fed’s illegal price rigging spreads. The evidence of massive amounts of naked shorts being dumped into the paper gold futures market at times of day when trading is thin is unequivocal. It has become obvious that the price of gold is being rigged in the futures market in order to protect the dollar’s value from QE.

The other pressure arises from the Obama regime’s foolish threats of sanctions on Russia. Other countries are no longer willing to tolerate Washington’s abuse of the world dollar standard. Washington uses the dollar-based international payments system to inflict damage on the economies of countries that resist Washington’s political hegemony.

Russia and China have had enough. As I have reported and as Peter Koenig reports here http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article38165.htm Russia and China are disconnecting their international trade from the dollar. Henceforth, Russia will conduct its trade, including the sale of oil and natural gas to Europe, in rubles and in the currencies of its BRICS partners.

This means a big drop in the demand for US dollars and a corresponding drop in the dollar’s exchange value.

As John Williams (shadowstats.com) has made clear, the US economy has not recovered from the downturn in 2008 and has weakened further. The vast majority of the US population is hard pressed from the lack of income growth for years. As the US is now an import-dependent economy, a drop in the dollar’s value will raise US prices and push living standards lower.

All evidence points to US economic failure in 2014, and that is the conclusion of John Williams’ April 9 report.

This year could also see the breakup of NATO and even the EU. Washington’s reckless coup in Ukraine and threat of sanctions against Russia have pushed its NATO puppet states onto dangerous ground. Washington misjudged the reaction in Ukraine to its overthrow of the elected democratic government and imposition of a stooge government. Crimea quickly departed Ukraine and rejoined Russia. Other former Russian territories in Ukraine might soon follow. Protesters in Lugansk, Donetsk, and Kharkov are demanding their own referendums. Protesters have declared the Donetsk People’s Republic and Kharkov People’s Republic. Washington’s stooge government in Kiev has threatened to put the protests down with violence. http://rt.com/news/eastern-ukraine-violence-threats-405/ Washington claims that the protests are organized by Russia, but no one believes Washington, not even its Ukrainian stooges.

Russian news reports have identified US mercenaries among the Kiev force that has been sent to put down the separatists in eastern Ukraine. A member of the right-wing, neo-Nazi Fatherland Party in the Kiev parliament has called for shooting the protesters dead.

Violence against the protesters is likely to bring in the Russian Army and result in the return to Russia of its former territories in Eastern Ukraine that were attached to Ukraine by the Soviet Communist Party.

With Washington out on a limb issuing threats hand over fist, Washington is pushing Europe into two highly undesirable confrontations. Europeans do not want a war with Russia over Washington’s coup in Kiev, and Europeans understand that any real sanctions on Russia, if observed, would do far more damage to Europeans. Within the EU, growing economic inequality among the countries, high unemployment, and stringent economic austerity imposed on poorer members have produced enormous strains. Europeans are in no mood to bear the brunt of a Washington-orchestrated conflict with Russia. While Washington presents Europe with war and sacrifice, Russia and China offer trade and friendship. Washington will do its best to keep European politicians bought-and-paid-for and in line with Washington’s policies, but the downside for Europe of going along with Washington is now much larger.

Across many fronts, Washington is emerging in the world’s eye as duplicitous, untrustworthy, and totally corrupt. A Securities and Exchange Commission prosecuting attorney, James Kidney used the occasion of his retirement to reveal that higher ups had squelched his prosecutions of Goldman Sachs and other “banks too big to fail,” because his SEC bosses were not focused on justice but “on getting high-paying jobs after their government service” by protecting the banks from prosecution for their illegal actions. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/04/09/65578/

The US Agency for International Development has been caught trying to use social media to overthrow the government of Cuba. http://rt.com/news/cuba-usaid-senate-zunzuneo-241/

This audacious recklessness comes on top of Washington’s overthrow of the Ukrainian government, the NSA spying scandal, Seymour Hersh’s investigative report that the Sarin gas attack in Syria was a false flag event arranged by NATO member Turkey in order to justify a US military attack on Syria, Washington’s forcing down Bolivian President Evo Morales’ presidential plane to be searched, Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction,” the misuse of the Libyan no-fly resolution for military attack, and on and on. Essentially, Washington has so badly damaged other countries’ confidence in the judgment and integrity of the US government that the world has lost its belief in US leadership. Washington is reduced to threats and bribes and increasingly presents as a bully.

The self-inflicted hammer blows to Washington’s credibility have taken a toll. The most serious blow of all is the dawning realization everywhere that Washington’s crackpot conspiracy theory of 9/11 is false. Large numbers of independent experts as well as more than one hundred first responders have contradicted every aspect of Washington’s absurd conspiracy theory. No aware person believes that a few Saudi Arabians, who could not fly airplanes, operating without help from any intelligence agency, outwitted the entire National Security State, not only all 16 US intelligence agencies but also all intelligence agencies of NATO and Israel as well.

Nothing worked on 9/11. Airport security failed four times in one hour, more failures in one hour than have occurred during the other 116,232 hours of the 21st century combined. For the first time in history the US Air Force could not get interceptor fighters off the ground and into the sky. For the first time in history Air Traffic Control lost airliners for up to one hour and did not report it. For the first time in history low temperature, short-lived, fires on a few floors caused massive steel structures to weaken and collapse. For the first time in history 3 skyscrapers fell at essentially free fall acceleration without the benefit of controlled demolition removing resistance from below.

Two-thirds of Americans fell for this crackpot story. The left-wing fell for it, because they saw the story as the oppressed striking back at America’s evil empire. The right-wing fell for the story, because they saw it as the demonized Muslims striking out at American goodness. President George W. Bush expressed the right-wing view very well: “They hate us for our freedom and democracy.”

But no one else believed it, least of all the Italians. Italians had been informed some years previously about government false flag events when their President revealed the truth about secret Operation Gladio. Operation Gladio was an operation run by the CIA and Italian intelligence during the second half of the 20th century to set off bombs that would kill European women and children in order to blame communists and, thereby, erode support for European communist parties.

Italians were among the first to make video presentations challenging Washington’s crackpot story of 9/11. The ultimate of this challenge is the 1 hour and 45 minute film, “Zero.” You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QU961SGps8g&feature=youtu.be

Zero was produced as a film investigating 9/ll by the Italian company Telemaco. Many prominent people appear in the film along with independent experts. Together, they disprove every assertion made by the US government regarding its explanation of 9/11.

The film was shown to the European parliament.

It is impossible for anyone who watches this film to believe one word of the official explanation of 9/11.

The conclusion is increasingly difficult to avoid that elements of the US government blew up three New York skyscrapers in order to destroy Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah and to launch the US on the neoconservatives agenda of US world hegemony.

China and Russia protested but accepted Libya’s destruction even though it was to their own detriment. But Iran became a red line. Washington was blocked, so Washington decided to cause major problems for Russia in Ukraine in order to distract Russia from Washington’s agenda elsewhere.

China has been uncertain about the trade-offs between its trade surpluses with the US and Washington’s growing encirclement of China with naval and air bases. China has come to the conclusion that China has the same enemy as Russia has–Washington.

One of two things is likely: Either the US dollar will be abandoned and collapse in value, thus ending Washington’s superpower status and Washington’s threat to world peace, or Washington will lead its puppets into military conflict with Russia and China. The outcome of such a war would be far more devastating than the collapse of the US dollar.

I'm not sure anymore about the power elites propensity to start a war. These are the most scurulous and gutless human beings potentially to have ever slithered across the face of the earth and they would be too scared about upsetting the distribution of caviar and French wine to their private islands. They will be snivelling and shaking in their little corron socks worried that their privilege and oppulence may have a set back.

So much is designed for you to switch off your mind like that . . . .

including 9/11, global governance, global depopulation agenda, police state spying, US sponsorship of Al Qaeda in Syria, etc.

 

At other times the Tonkin Gulf and pre knowledge of the Pearl Harbor attack were subjects that would create such self imposed blindness.  

Never be unwilling to investigate the evidence and apply logic before making your conclusions. Many of us who at first thought "Oh, that could never have happened." later found out otherwise. Because so many think "That could never happen in America." - - - - it does.

Every male US citizen between the ages of 18-25 has to register wiith the Selective Service.  If you don't, you're not eligible for college financial aid, federal jobs, or federal job training programs.  And if prosecuted, the penalties are up to 5 years in prison and $250,000 fine.

Now, we don't have an active draft right now and haven't since the end of the Viet Nam War. But we very much do have the Selective Service and it is very much active.  You can see the forms at any US Post Office branch.

Absolutely. Previous laws are certainly not a predictor to what will happen. The fun thing about laws is that the government can just change them, or as it turns out, violate them. "It's good to be king." When you are in charge of everything, laws are irrelevant.

The most important tool in the warmasters' war chest is mind control. If the populace is more focused on Kim Kardassian that Vladimir Putin, they can fund however many irregular forces they want. Fun facts: that Italian operation funded by the US to destabilize Italy employed Lucky Luciano (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_Luciano) as primary operative. Crime and drug warz are used as a primary training tool and cash (as in printed notes) revenue source for irregular forces used by the CIA.

Or the murder of a sitting US President, in broad daylight, in a major metropolitan area on TV.

When you can get away with that, you can get away with anything.

Who ran against Kennedy in 1960, planned the Bay of Pigs invasion while VP under Eisenhower and was later president? Who was in charge of CIA operations fro the Carribean sector and later became president, and whose son became president?

Magic bullet, indeed.

Very early on I read "Crossing the Rubicon" and at the time struggled to accept the scale of the accusations it contained. Consider now how far ahead of his time Ruppert was. Poor guy went almost nuts and I am sure they were all over him for outing the CIA drug trade and 9/11.

Crushing his soul and people like him is how they win on the mind control battlefield. He tried to start that community in Oregon to prepare for collapse and I followed that for a while but by then I am sure he was so penetrated by spooks they could do whatever they wanted to his brain.

All truth and lies are out there. Just look and pick your beliefs.

Begin here http://www.ae911truth.org/

Professional architects and engineers that design and build buildings go through the destruction of the World trade Center buildings on 911.

Do you know the 47 story building 7 came down at 5:20 pm in what looks like a typical implosion?

No airplane hit it. Study this and the rabbit hole opens for you.

I liked the logic someone else put forward.  If those towers fell because the steel softened from the airplane fuel, then why is it that every home in america didn't burn down when their kerosene heater's steel "softened" and fell down only to ignite the house?

Go into your back yard with some kerosene and a thermocouple and see what is the hottest temperature you can obtain without mechanical forced air draft, a refractory enclosure and very careful supervision. If you know anything about combustion and steel, you will know most of the "experts" who waved their hands about the steel softening were full of shit. Ever wonder why one of the most important combustion stories in world history has never once been discussed in the scientific combustion journals like Combustion and Flame?

+911 ;)

Agreed.  Anyone who runs away at the mere mention of 911 is part of a major problem.

 

I did see a vid a while back (cant remember which right now) about the phychology of choosing to believe / not to belive..the "official story".

 

It really shows how peoples minds just wont let them believe the truth. It's crazy.

Hey , I was all gung ho, "lets get the bastids that attacked us" and all that.. I admit, I fell for it. BUT, about 4 years later I remember when It really hit me. The truth. All the pieces fell into place at once. It was a friggin scary ass day for me. My world changed that day.

 

It took me a while I admit, but I can't believe that all these years later , that ANYONE can still believe the so called "official story".

 

Carry on..

9/11 is the key to everything.  If the truth comes out about that the American people, and the world generally, will be so outraged at what the Permanent Government and the Israelis have done that everything will be questioned.  Nobody will believe anything that TPTB or their presstitue shills in the MSM tell them. I predict that the Fed will be the first up for 'review'.

I remember. Sweating it out through lotteries that determined whether or not you would go to a jungle on the other side of the world and probably die, not fighting for a cause you understood and believed in, but simply trying to survive your tour and get back home. In my second grade "Weekly Reader" the case for intervention on behalf of the South to help them protect themselves from the evil North Vietnamese "rebels" who snuck across the border and burned the villages of the peaceful South Vietnamese. That was 1961. I was all for it. "We can't let them do that." But, as I later found out, as did everyone, the war had nothing to do with that.

Yeah, Anusocracy, I have also been using that metaphor since the 1970s. However, it always got harder and harder to imagine how anyone could survive through that happening! Perhaps some will, however, in my view what Roberts is describing is what I refer to as us being driven towards Peak Insanities.

For many decades, Uncle Sam has been able to dominate the whole world's money/murder systems, as Uncle Sam was directed to do so by the international banksters. In fact, the money system is based on runaway frauds, while the murder system is based on runaway deceits, which have been feeding back to reinforce each other.

Since money is necessarily measurement backed by murder, the end of the dollar, due to the development of debt insanities, is connected to the threats of that provoking death insanities. The death of Uncle Sam would be an event that could become trillions of times worse than anything previously in known human history. The almost total degree to which both Uncle Sam, and the whole world, is dominated and controlled by lies backed by violence, or frauds backed by force, goes deeper and deeper through the basic ways that people either think, or rather, refuse to think about that ...

Pathological lying results in a feedback loop. It severely taxes and overwhelms the abilities of the liars.

My guess is that that is true of psychopathic behaviors - a feedback loop that constantly introduces errors that can't be contained.

Pathological liars cross the Rubicon when they start believing their own lies. At that point they are transported into a parallel world that almost aligns with reality but requires herculean effort on their part to keep afloat.

Cognitive dissonance results in blindness, but at some point, their efforts to maintain their weltanshaung fail and the realignment is catastrophic... of course, the ones who will pay are us.

As for the demise of the US, having 50 independent states means freedom from a 3.5+ trillion dollar parasite that is redundant with regards to 'useful' state activities, and having to proportionally divide up federal debt.

In foreign affairs, the various states would have to make nice with the rest of the world to survive.

I've made the comment before that for the world in toto, the countries that drastically reduce or eliminate their governments, will be the big winners economically.

The longer the delay before accepting the inevitable pain means longer and harsher pain to endure.

It's the Bush Doctrine of preemptive war coming around to bite on the hind quarters. This thing may not evolve into war step by step the way most believe.

My Master His Royal Virus also loves killing wildlife and apparently prefers only a few whitey slaves on the planet, but his 'good' works support the smart planet concept of Ag21 and vaccines, etc which are slow burn roads to culling - the evidence is there if you take the painful journey to research the money and foundation trails. Dr J Coleman has some good works with original sources (documents written for my masters) if you want to research. btw I'm a bit wary of where Naomi Klien is in this mix following her moves after Shock Doctorine.

What we define as insane appears to be a semi rational intergenerational (risk averse) protection racket spread over time into corporations and foundations allowing the laundering of war and drug money and power bases. It makes sense that falsely "free trade" agreements are constantly manufactured (they are counter free trade, health, essential personal/property rights).they also make a mockery of the biodiversity related legislation supposedly aimed at protecting wildlife (neither wildlife nor food security nor priveta property rights are protected but decimation of legal rights are decimated).

I am rambling, but the deniable culling is in my home town and its more dangerous than the stupid cyclone the media wants to make into a sensational mass murder (stupid cyclone Ita)...after two years of reasearch the same thing in Aust is in the USA and others - worst policies possible for fire management, worst policies for local farmers vs meg-corp famers (who get green trape reductions)....best policies possible for ARUP, Clinto Foundation and other cohorts of the financial arm of the UN called ICLEI - sick of trailing the revolving door cvs and financial contracts with no end to govt bodies. Really fkg sick of ZHrs who say UN Ag21 is a conspriacy while my fkg money pays fot its shit through the VCs on the realted CSIRO boards generated fky calculater to sell to tax payers justifying why they should be removed off beach front properties that are then onsold to developers.

Murder is only useful after the life has been sucked out of the non-socipathic uselesseater. Time to have a sip and check the cyclone. WOOF.

thanks for putting up with the typo's; I am wired because everytime we have a cyclone (etc) we wonder if this will be the new excuse to make our property rights non-existent.........they seem to hunger for calamity of any sort to usurp the rule of law.

Since when were NGO's greater "stakeholders" than private citzena and private property holders who pay the BS fees and taxes? In 5 min I can protect nature better than the clowns with no financial stake no private home/business landownership and no interest in actually caring for the kand by their own effort e.g we plant vines that attract rare butterflies cue the monkeys that sit on their butts who decide we're now a conservation zone under their control and the butterflied must be protected from those WHO PLANTED the vines - wtf?

Dipshit Tim Flannery - scare monerger admitted himself govt national parks were creating native fauna waste lands and wildlife was falling because of nationalisation of land (under the UNESCo banner)..... its happening on every western continent because there is an agenda that is NOT about wildilfe.

The Western stooges in Kiev are agreeing to referendums in the regions http://rt.com/news/ukraine-protest-deadline-expires-856/ .

Vladimir Vladimirovich hasn't yet given up on Ukraine remaining united. It is also in Russia's interests to have a united Ukraine that doesn't work against Russia's interests, than to have the South and East of Ukraine as part of Russia and the rest of Ukraine at the mercy of the West. While the Nazis may be in control in Kiev right now, they don't enjoy majority support even in Western Ukraine. Ukraine will become a federated state with the regions having most of the powers, a constitution that commits it to neutrailty with regard to Russia and the West and which requires all the regions to agree for the constitution to be amended. Sergei Viktorovich Lavrov has proposed this a while ago and it will come to pass.

Vladimir Vladimirovich intends to completely humiliate the West in this matter and he will succeed.

Yeah, wee-weed up, the first thing I thought was that, eventually, ain't both more likely?

After one attempts to comprehend some of the deeper levels of more probable 9/11 Truth, the degree of the runaway criminal insanities of the currently established ruling classes operating to dominate the government of the USA provides enough cogent material to conclude that the actual degree of their criminal insanity is sufficient for them to really risk world war to try to advance their agenda.

Ever since the development of weapons of mass destruction, the world could be metaphorically compared to a group of people standing in a pool of gasoline, threatening each other by waving their matches around. Meanwhile, that pool of gasoline got deeper and deeper, from knee deep, to waste deep, then receded a bit, that got deeper again, to chest deep, and appears now to be nearly neck deep, while there are now more people standing in that pool of gasoline, waving more matches at each other, threatening to light a fire.

The fundamental structure of the current world system is globalized electronic fiat money, made out of nothing as debts by private banks, which is backed up by nothing except the power of governments with weapons of mass destruction. Therefore, as that monetary system advances its insane agenda, the corresponding murder system advances its corresponding insane agenda.

By and large, there is no rational public debate whatsoever about how to operate better debt controls, backed by better death controls, because the entrenched systems are based on the maximum possible frauds and deceits, which can not even begin to admit the real facts about themselves, in order to negotiate.

Since the real world is controlled by lies backed by violence, which have become legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, BUT, those lies can never be made to become true by being backed with violence, WHILE that violence continues to be able to drive those lies to still dominate society, we are collectively trapped in those paradoxical problems spinning out of control, since the degree to which society is successfully controlled by lies backed by violence eventually drives that whole society to become more and more insane. Hence, there does not seem to be anything which is actually possible than that system will continue to drive itself more madly self-destructive, and therefore, it eventually must go through a series of psychotic breakdowns.

Therefore, I agree with the view that BOTH the collapse of the US Dollar as a still workable global reserve currency, AND an insane, almost omnicidal, world war with weapons of mass destruction, appears to be the most probable future scenario.

The 'guiding hands' of the world are made up of psychopath control freaks.

Investigate the psychology of psychopaths and you'll see that they are quite willing to destroy the world and themselves in the process, if what they want is denied them.

But it is ultimately also true, that humanity's destiiny is in our own hands. We are the eyes and ears and arms of those that would be willing to do such insane destruction. Its only through us that they can carry out their plans; we far outnumber them.

So the question is - "Will people grow up and think for themselves ?"  Will the little boys in uniforms and wearing badges and wearing white lab coats - just do as they're told by their masters - - - - because they aren't willing to think ? Will they pull the triggers and push the buttons ? Has years of indoctrination in their families, 'schools', by the media, and in their organizations destroyed their sense of self preservation for themselves and their loved ones ?

And when you bring up these subjects to others and 'they don't want to think about it' - - - - that's a perfect example of the non-thinking that might very well destroy humanity.

The US elite are not insane, they are psychopaths. The difference being that they have a strong self-preservation instinct that insane people may lack. As long as they are given the message through private channels, of course, that they are facing annihilation and not some limited conventional war that they may believe they can win, they can be put in check. I believe Vladimir Vladimirovich has already delivered that message.

Sorry to disappoint, but there will be no World War III (or IV, if you count the Cold War as WW III). There will only be economic destruction of the West and its possible descent into pre-industrial feudalism.

I hope you are right, Global Observer.

However, the real weapons systems have already been built that are designed to try to cope with a first-strike against them. That means that the inherent structure of those systems is extremely dangerous, and that insane wars could get going by a series of accidental events. The real history of those systems during the previous Cold War had several significant episodes when it almost went HOT! Twice, it was only the decision of a Russian officer that stopped it from happening.

I do not agree with there being a big enough difference between "sane psychopaths" versus "insane sociopaths," to prevent the consequences of pushing their agendas into greater and greater risks warranting still believing that there is enough residual sanity or rationality behind taking that much risk. The very existence of a couple thousand atomic bombs being kept at a moment's notice of being deployed is INSANE, although, within the current world system, that kind of militarism had a history of developing to be seen as sane each step along the way.

Militarism developing weapons of mass destruction has been the greatest from of "mission creep" ever. That could become a galloping mission, if the right set of circumstances set it off. Meanwhile, all the rest of the other weapons of mass destruction continue to also be developed. Along with many others, I regard the threat of biological weapons as being up there with atomic, in terms of being able to disrupt civilization enough to cause it to collapse into chaos quite quickly. Biological weapons are the "poor man's atomic bombs."

Furthermore, we still have the runaway potential for future nanotechnological weapons to combine with all the previous weapons of mass destruction, so that those end up becoming quadrillions of times worse. So many different science fiction novels have attempted to speculate about what it would be like if advanced nanotechnological weapons were developed and used.

All in all, the basic problems are that the advancing technology has nothing comparable to advancing politics. Politics is still run as organized crime, dominated by old-fashioned religions and ideologies. As far as I can tell, the ruling classes, in the wealthiest and most powerful families, appear to believe in the most old-fashioned religions and ideologies, which they can maintain because they operate from within the most protected environments. Hence, I stand by my view that those ruling classes have become criminally insane, and that they are able and willing to relentlessly and ruthlessly risk starting wars with weapons of mass destruction, which could rapidly spin out of control, in order to continue to advance their global agenda.

Furthermore, they already dominate the monetary systems, and everything that is controlled by those monetary systems, so much that there is no practical way for any effective resistance to operate outside of that context. Therefore, I continue to believe that the future will be a wild roller coaster ride, which will go out of control of the ruling classes. I think we are headed for times of Peak Insanities, not some gradual grinding down into misery that is able to continue to endlessly deteriorate, without some wilder and dramatic changes of state being provoked. I still believe that pumping science and technology which are trillions of times more powerful (and headed towards quadrillions) into the social pyramid systems of Neolithic Civilization is inherently an insane thing, which must necessarily blow those social pyramid systems away, one way or another, sooner or later. I think that both the rulers and those they rule over, are collectively INSANE, because they can not cope, and have not adapted to the development of weapons of mass destruction.

Theoretically, we should go through profound paradigm changes in the philosophy of science, which then can be applied to politics, in order to cope with the technologies that now exist, and are being developed to be even much more so. Theoretically, we should go through intellectual scientific revolutions in the ways that we think about politics, and apply that to our combined money/murder systems, or the ways that we back up our debt controls with our death controls. However, in practice, both the ruling classes, and those they rule over, are mostly not able to do that. Instead, the pumping up of the systems of lies backed by violence, maintaining conditions of ignorance and fear, to become trillions of times GREATER, as long as science and technology continues to advance, is deeply INSANE.

BOTH THE RULERS AND THOSE THEY RULE OVER ARE COLLECTIVELY INSANE, BECAUSE THE WAYS THAT THEY THINK HAVE NOT ADAPTED DEEPLY ENOUGH TO ADVANCES IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY. THE RULERS DOMINATED BY BEING THE BEST AT DISHONESTY BACKED BY VIOLENCE, WHILE THOSE THEY RULED OVER ADAPTED BY BEING IGNORANT AND AFRAID.

Everything happening is still correctly described by this famous quote from Albert Einstein:

"The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking and thus we drift towards unparalleled catastrophe."

Theoretically, we should be profoundly changing our modes of thinking, in order to adapt to the real powers and capabilities that science and technology have enabled. However, the established social systems are based on lies and violence, maintaining attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance. In that context, the runaway social polarization is made much worse by the even more serious destruction of the natural world. Both together are way worse than the majority of mainstream morons are aware of.  It is the combined systems of BOTH the rulers, and those they rule over, which are collectively criminally insane.

We DO operate our death controls through the maximum possible deceits, and our debt controls through the maximum possible frauds. That runaway social insanity is practically NEVER addressed by proposing better combined money/murder systems, because that would take changing our modes of thinking in ways which the vast majority of both the rulers, and those they rule over, do not want to think about.

The Grand Canyon Paradoxes of science and technology advancing through a social system based on lies backed by violence is constantly getting worse, faster, and automatically becoming more criminally insane every day! Since our real human and industrial ecologies operate through the maximum possible deceits and frauds, the natural ecologies are being destroyed at an exponentially accelerating rate. Meanwhile, it is practically impossible to have any rational public debates about any of that, since both the rulers and those they rule over, are trapped within their ways of thinking about the combined money/murder systems, which modes of thinking are based on lying about those as much as possible, while maintaining attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance as much as possible.

In that context, a gradual and consistent decline of Western civilization back to some kind of grinding down into Neo-Feudalism is one of the more optimistic scenarios, which I doubt will be what actually happens. Rather, my view is that there will be a much wilder roller coaster ride, which will go out of control. I believe that we are headed towards times of Peak Insanities, which are more insane that we can currently imagine ... I like to maintain the irrational hope that, after those psychotic breakdowns, some will survive through that, and be able to thereafter change their modes of thinking enough to adapt to the powers of science and technology.

However, I think that this prediction by Albert Einstein was too optimistic:

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

If the ruling powers merely turned a blind eye, the 9/11 false flag scenario changes from nonsense to plausible.

Even if one continues to believe the official story details of falling buildings and luck of the box-cutters, all the ruling authorities had to do was facilitate such an "event" bydeliberately turning a blind eye.

There is substantial evidence that they so did, from PNAC hopes to dismissal of warnings.

They hoped for an "event" to justify their ambitions.

Comparison may be made to Pearl Harbor. Roosevelt may not have known exactly where or how effectively Japan would strike. All he had to know/want was to sufficiently provoke Japan.

Was just having this conversation with a friend today. He wondered what was coming, I told him the end of the dollar as world reserve currency was a real possibility. Then I explained how this status allows the mass money printing, market manipulations and huge import imbalance here in the USA. I explained that the US Government spends twice the yearly tax revenue, and borrows and prints the other half. I told him, Imagine you wake up tomorrow and all government spending is cut in half at a stroke. Food for thought. Russia is under all forms of attack by the west, for some bizzare reason. China has been issued a strong series of threats by Washington on economic, currency and geo political fronts. Iran is threatened with destruction from the air and Syria is also on that same list. Many other threats come out of Washington daily, many aimed at other BRICKS and many at Central and SOuth America's nations. Cuba is on a hit list. Imagine what we could do to all these powers without the spending power of the petro dollar and reserve world currency status. Without that money printing power, we are no longer the world's hyper power. There simply is NOT enough wealth creation inside the American economy to afford half of what we do now. Cut everybodys budget in half, government and personal. A depression the likes of which modern times have never seen.

Doesn't matter. They still don't see it. Most I've talked to are oblivious. I actually have octogenarians next door who have their house mortgaged to the hilt and tried for another loan. The bank was smart enough to turn them down. When they told me this, I was afraid they were going to hit me up. They've lived there 40 yrs and have nothing. They both worked most of those years, too. I've lived here half as long and have mine paid off. Paid it off when things started falling apart in 2008. I might get a bargain, in their house, before it's over.

The house next door to mine was empty for 3 years after the octogenerian who lived there died.  His son pretty much paid the taxes on it and let it fall apart.  I was about to give him a low-ball offer, like $90K, for it because it needed $100K worth of work, and then might be worth $200-220K.

Lo and behold the "investors" show up a few months back, pay $240K for the place, are fixing it up with builder grade materials, and hope to get $400K+ for it.  It's on the tax rolls at $140K presently.

Virtually the same story here. Folks had been there about 3 years, of which they hadn't made payments in a year. Skipped out in the middle of the night and left the place abandoned. VA and then bank finally took it over a year later, and it sat empty for another year afterwards. Good thing strippers didn't notice it. Finally one of the bank's "service" guys, the ones that go around and mow grass at bank owned placed and the like bought it and started fixing it up on the cheap, builder grade materials and own labor (example: do-it-yourself roofing job). I expect to see it on the market again soon.

Yeah, he had my attention until he started ranting about 9/11 being a U.S. government plot. I gotta tell ya, these morons in govt are not nearly intelligent enough to dream up and implement such a plot. They're rank incompetents. PCR makes some good points, but then wanders so far off the reservation that I'm sure he's off his lithium tablets.

They dreamt it up and implemented it - poorly. Even with the help of the extremely competent Israelis, the still made a mash of it.

Watch the film PCR mentions then read 911 by Griffin.

Italians had been informed some years previously about government false flag events when their President revealed the truth about secret Operation Gladio

Francesco Cossiga, Italian President, who revealed the truth about Operation Gladio and resigned for it, also revealed the truth about 9/11:

Former Italian President and the man who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, Francesco Cossiga, has gone public on 9/11, telling Italy’s most respected newspaper that the attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad and that this was common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies.

Cossiga was elected President of Italian Senate in July 1983 before being winning a landslide 1985 election to become President of the country in 1985.

Cossiga gained respect from opposition parties as one of a rare breed – an honest politician – and led the country for seven years until April 1992.

Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio – a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

the Greek Hoodl......s sorry the Government I mean, is UNDER SEVERE STRESS, because of the Golden Dawn's second in command, has revealed some Unsavoury video clips that are DAMMNING THE PRIME MINISTER SomeAreAss. Well this is calling for  some diversionary  tactics ....

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/greece/10756588/Car-bom...

......Well yesterday morning a Car Bomb went off in the middle of Athens, the report said, 75 kilogramms were inside the car.

Not 74 or 76 kilogramms but 75.

Question,  how did they know they were 75 kilos?????  Unless of course it was them that went to that expense.

They were not any fatalities, that is, it was harmless.

The previous "Terrrrrist " act was the Professional "double tap" assasination of 2 young Golden Dawn  SUPPORTERS, not high level ones.

Oh I forget, they let out on a normal leave from prison an old "Terrrrrst" somebody called Xiros (Quite thick in the head, by inteligence standards) and he never went back. Greeks are sarkastic about that saying he is guarded by the "Authorities"  in very comfy environment Also he read on the Internet a declaration to carry on the "Struggle" the problem with that is that  he had problem in reading it for somebody that is supposed to have scripted the declaration (Not trained as well as some Other Teleprompter that we know of.

well, it seems we can't edit our posts anymore...i don't know quite how to feel about that.  i'll reserve my opinions until i think this all the way through.

anyway, i'm now more solidly convinced than ever on an even more important subject -- in the realm of sweet-stuff, maple syrup is the undisputed king.  for so many years i thrashed about and ripped my hair out over an insoluble enigma: is syrup God's gift to pancakes, or is it the other way round?  i've now finalized my verdict:  real maple syrup is not only God's gift to pancakes, there is no better tasting sweet-stuff in existence.  janus will brook no contrary opinions on the matter.

i've also given a bit of thought to PCR's post, and precisely how i should go about commenting upon it, and to additionally complement my efforts to its overall intent.  this looks like a job for janus!

buying in and forcing my faith into this economic-recovery meme has consumed the better part of my recent efforts (you bitchez know how pro DC janus is...go team!!!).  and i've therefore resolved to yet again become an entrepreneur...but this time i'm gonna do it right!  no more testing the market place, janus is gonna become a consultant.  there's far more money to be made in telling profitable companies how to run their affairs.  in other words, i'm bringing my skills to market, right over-top the market's head...in the parlance of 'basketball', i'm gonna dunk all over dey asses.

most of you were probably assuming janus would open an ebonics clinic...and so i must congratulate the majority of those reading; yes, i am going to teach the white man how to talk colored.

but, as they say, practice makes perfect and the road to carnagie hall isn't paved with gold bricks.  so i'm gonna brush-up on my jive-talkin...oh, BTW, my services are available for, like, eighty or ninty million a day -- and i wanna be picked up from the airport in a bently, and by a hot babe...(my contract is basically four pages of similar stipulations).

{the following is janus jive-talkin with 'the man' (who now happens to be 'colored'...or negro...or black...or african american...or 'person of defiantly non-white ethnic status'...whatev).  some familiar epithets have been changed to protect the wiltingly sensitive}

janus: you jiggers be trippin.

the man:  how so, janus?

janus:  dis shit be all whack and shit...sheeet. 

the man:  to what shit are you specifically referring, janus?

janus:  dis 9/11 shit...dat's some fucked-up shit.  and the economy and shit; dat shit is offa da fuckin chain.  you white bithez be all, 'i be stealin all you motha fuckah's money and be buyin bermuda and fuckin white tigers and shit...bitchez be-all wrappin dey selves in chinchilla and shit...mutha fuckas be sleepin in dat shit...fuckin chinchilla pajamas and shit'. 

the man: yes, but, what does any of that have to do with 9/11 and the economy?

janus: fuck you, mutha fucker!  ain't you heard a mutha fuckin word i sed?  you mutha fuckin deaf, jigger?  don't make me get up and smack yo' ass, bitch!

the man: janus, here, please, smoke a blunt and 'chill'; as you people put it.

janus: you people?  did i just hear you say, 'you people'?  you mutha fuckin jigger.  now back yo' ass up fore i do it for ya.

{here i yank the blunt outta da man's hand, light it and begin smoking}

janus: it's like dis, mutha fuckahs...i gots three differt' baby-mommas, dey all crazier'n dan shit, they all be jumpin all over my paychecks and shit, child-support and shit, diapers and formula and shit, and these politicians and bankers are blowin shit up and goin to war and shit, and robbin banks with computers and shit, and a jigger can't get no job but washin cars and shit.  fuck dis shit.  dis shit's gots ta go, jiggers.

the man: what do you think needs to be done?

janus: well, lotsa jiggers jus wanna pop a cap in dey asses and be done wid it...i think we should make em into slaves...keep em' on a ankle bracelet -- tasers da jigger-ass if they trys and gets away. 

 

this is an attempt to let 'the man' know that the people are catching on...it is in no way offensive, and no negative inference can be drawn from it -- so don't even try!  it's true, too...from the least to the greatest, the world is waking up -- the veil is being peeled back.  the people and the powers want two different things.  tensions are spiking.

for Christ's sake, even the italians are catching on...mama mia!

but, don't worry, we'll fix it all in the next election...doubtless.

Almost my exact words. I have dealt with mentally ill people before. The challenge is to be able to separate the lucid useful things they say from the delusions.

Sadly, I am too weak a man for this cosistently. The moment someone starts off on 9-11 drivel, I tune out the other potentially useful stuff they have to say.

Same thing happens once people start mouth-foaming about the Jooooooooooooos. They may be smart in other areas, but in my minds eye, I go "idiot racist" and tune them out.

Some people Fonz simply are not ready or are not capable of seeing.

For me, it's sort of an if A, then B dynamic.

For example:

If the .gov-.mil nexus is willing to blow up airliners full of Americans and kill Americans in shopping malls to gin up war fervor against Cuba, then they are capable of dropping 3 skyscrapers and killing thousands to invade MENA.

Operation Northwoods, 911 False Flag.

If A, then B.
A.
Therefore, B.

My advice, for what it's worth, is to eschew all evidence and theory- some of which was undoubtedly planted to muddy the waters- and watch the video of all three towers falling.  Again.  And Again.  And again.  Until the good lord talks to you.

It is only because the mind has been made supple and receptive to the whims of authority that this is even an issue.
