"The West's Public Enemy Number One"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Newsweek's "triumphal" return to print with its expose on the wrong Satoshi Nakamoto (of "Bitcoin founder" fame) was less than, well, triumphal. So what is the eyeball starved media outlet seeking a second life to do? A screaming "grab me" epiphany of jingoist groupthink, in which we read that last week's events in Russia was "Putin's Lockerbie moment", should certainly help (and indeed it's very kind of Newsweek to have conducted all the forensic analysis and tests which confirm its magazine-selling allegations).

 

Which is ironic, considering just three months ago we got...

 

Perhaps the West needs bigger buttons then?

I've never read a Newsweek, but I wonder why the owners of these failed media outlets can't seem to grasp their old model of lie, omit, and exaggerate simply doesn't work anymore. There's really only one logical conclusion. They are being funding for the sole purpose of spreading lies, omissions, and exaggerations. I wouldn't be surprised if they are funded by various spook groups.

Off Topic...(cool-ass pic through of Putin).  But this just came through from Bix Weir and thought I'd share.  (have you stacked any phyzz lately, bitchez?  Get to it while it's still on sale!).

 

 

Fed Slams Silver Market Riggers' 50T Euro in Derivatives!

 

You can't make this up. Just weeks before the London Silver Fix goes by the way of the DoDo Bird the NY Fed slams the Bankster responsible for the ending of the Silver Fix ...Deutsche Bank for having much too high derivative leverage!!

  NY Fed Slams Deutsche Bank (And Its €55 Trillion In Derivatives): Accuses It Of "Significant Operational Risk"
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-22/ny-fed-slams-deutsche-bank-and-its-%E2%82%AC55-trillion-derivatives-accuses-it-significant-o
  But that's not the half of it. There are rumors that the companies picked to "replace" the Silver Fix (CME and Reuters) are NOT going to carry on the original "Silver Fix" at all but create a brand new transaction based electronic system that will report something called the "London Silver Price"!
  So what happens to the MASSIVE amount of silver derivative contracts that Deutsche Bank wrote that were dependent on settlement based off the "Silver Fix" after August 14th??
  Poof! Hello weapon of Mass Financial Destruction as counter-parties to Deutsche Bank's 55T Euro derivative book will be decapitated in a Global Derivative Meltdown!
  Those who think the ISDA will come to the rescue with a revised definition of the "Silver Fix" don't understand that this is all being done ON PURPOSE!
  The only question left...WHAT WILL WE DO AFTER THE CRASH?
  That is where the decision for FREEDOM will be either demanded by the People or forfeited by the People.
  I choose FREEDOM...what about YOU?
  May the Road you choose be the Right Road.

During the Olympics, before any of this shit went down with Syria, Ukraine, flight 17, I had a strange feeling some big change of official opinion was on it's way.  I kept wondering, why the hell are they going so far out of their way to trash every little thing about the way Russia held the games, and explicitly saying anything and everything was Putin's fault.  Now it's clear.  We are at war with Eastasia, we have always been at war with Eastasia.

"...According to my own CIA handler, Dr. Richard Fuisz, who’d been stationed in Lebanon and Syria at the time, the CIA had established a protected drug route from Lebanon to Europe and on to the United States. His statements support other sources that “Operation Corea” allowed Syrian drug dealers led by Monzer al-Kassar (also linked to Oliver North in the Iran-Contra scandal) to ship heroin to the U.S. on Pan Am flights, in exchange for intelligence on the hostages’ whereabouts in Lebanon. The CIA allegedly made sure that suitcases carrying heroin were not searched at customs.

Building up to Lockerbie, the Defense Intelligence team in Beirut, led by Maj. Charles Dennis McKee and Matthew Gannon, suspected that CIA infiltration of the heroin network might be prolonging the hostage crisis. On the day it was blown out of the sky, Pan Am 103 was carrying that team of CIA and FBI investigators, the CIA’s Deputy Chief assigned to Beirut, and three Defense Intelligence officers, including McKee and Gannon, on their way to Washington to deliver a report on the CIA’s role in heroin trafficking, and the impact on terrorist financing and the hostage crisis.

In short, everyone with direct knowledge of CIA kickbacks from heroin trafficking died on Pan Am 103. A suitcase packed with $500,000 worth of heroin was found in the wreckage. It belonged to investigators, as proof of the corruption.

The U.S. had prior knowledge of the attack. A number of military officials and diplomats got pulled off the flight—making room for a group of students from Syracuse University traveling stand by for the Christmas holidays. It was a monstrous act!

But condemning Megrahi to cover up the CIA’s role in heroin trafficking has struck many Lockerbie afficiandos as grossly unjust. Add the corruption of purchased testimony– $4 million a pop— and Megrahi’s life sentence struck a nerve of obscenity. The United Nations had forced Libya to fork over $2.7 billion in damages to the Lockerbie families, a rate of $10 million for every death. ..."

Whereas the real threat is rooted in the laws of nature.

 

From Tullet Prebon : http://ftalphaville.ft.com/files/2013/01/Perfect-Storm-LR.pdf

"One of the problems with economics is that it's practioners preach a concentration on money, whereas money is the language rather than the substance of the real economy.  Ultimately, the economy is - and always has been - a surplus energy equation, governed by the laws of thermodynamics, not those of the market."

"and the critical supply of surplus energy has been in seemingly - inexorable decline for at least three decades" 

"all goods and services on which money can be spent are the products of energy inputs either past, present, or future."

"The appreciation of the true nature of money as a tokenisation of energy also enables us to put debt into it's proper context"

"it becomes apparent that debt really amounts to a claim on future energy"

"exogenous energy inputs (overwhelmingly dominated by fossil fuels) now provides the vast majority of the energy used in the ecomony.

This post from the Saker's blog sums it up very well:

Larchmonter445 said...

This all does not matter. What matters is the war. The Counter-Offensive has produced real results overnight. Two planes down. Towns retaken. The Lugansk area is more stable. And there are more nazis and Ukies dead or running toward momma.

The war is all that matters. The war must be won.

Why are people wasting time over a mountain of lies told by psychopathic liars whose toolbox is full of genocidal weapons?

You can never win the argument. Jesus Christ could not win the argument. But more importantly, you don't have to win the argument.

The entire world knows it is all a lie. Does anyone in China or Brazil or India not know that the Hegemon is behind all this shit?

Back to the war. The units themselves are using video as they group and move, and you can see the morale of the fighters is sky high. Small companies of men are driving away tank and armored columns. The militia can move openly in vast sprawls of rolling terrain. This with planes dominating the sky above.

Imagine more men, and I think in reality, there are no more than 2500-3000 actually fighting the war. But they have technique and are brazen and that gives them great advantage. They own the ground. It takes fully dozens of tanks and dozens of armored vehicles to move them, and of course, they want to keep moving to force those armored columns into traps and ambushes.

The militia have only to receive another large supply of men so they can double their force, and then they can compel more surrender and obtain the vehicles and weapons systems they need.

Right now, they know that the Ukies only have a 3-4 day effort in them each Ukie offensive, due to supply, resolve and leadership. And most of these sustained battles by the Ukies are directed at unfortified villages and cities.

Once you get off the hunt for Truth about a Lie, redirect yourself to the War, my friends.

The war is a Hegemonic project to destroy Russia and Putin.

Keep your focus on the war. The next big thing will be the next round of equipment escalation. Will NATO countries and US especially try to alter the facts on the ground before the Ukies are decimated in Donbass? Or will Putin respond to his own statements yesterday that Russia will not allow NATO any advantage vis a vis Russian security?

We all have an understanding that Russia must have a cleansed Ukraine, a neutralized Ukraine for true security. No guerrilla war capacity, no adverse government next door, no will to fight or capacity to fight can be left in the Ukrainian society.

I don't see how any Russian planner, tactician or strategist can get that condition without disemboweling Kiev and scattering into pieces the entity presently known as Ukraine. Crippling is not enough. In ten or fifteen years, the US and NATO will reconstitute it. Ukraine has to be entombed as a state.

Ukraine is Lennie Small, as John Steinbeck wrote in Of Mice and Men. And Russia must be George Milton. Only a bullet to the back of the head will suffice to end the threat of the monster that Ukraine has become.

Stockpile food and water.  Get yourselves safe havens, and places of shelter.

Putin told his duma / parliament whatever that they (Russia) will not be meddled with, and will counter NATO's buildup in the Ukraine.

We live in the most dangerous time in history and like a bunch of deer seeing wolves off in the distance we have become super-complacent, acclimatized to the dangers that grind on all around us.

Just lately Gideon Rachman noted in a FT comment this:

"Just a couple of months ago it was fashionable to laud Vladimir Putin for his strategic genius. American rightwingers contrasted his sure-footedness with their own president’s alleged weakness. In a column entitled “Obama vs Putin, The Mismatch”, Charles Krauthammer argued: “Under this president, Russia has run rings around America.” Rudy Giuliani, former mayor of New York, praised Mr Putin’s decisiveness and cooed: “That’s what you call a leader.” Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence party, said Mr Putin was the world leader he most admired."

what it really irks me is how much all this Ukrainian/Russian stance in the US and the UK is dictated by domestic, internal politics

Because you don't understand their motives and intentions:

 

When i came to power, i took over a nation which was a democracy. Indeed, as long as Germany was a democracy we saw that everyone in the world came to their help and aid. Yes, the German people used to live in a democracy, and had been plundered and squeezed dry. No, what does democracy or authoritarian state mean for those INTERNATIONAL HYENAS? They're not interested in either!

They are only interested in one thing: Is anyone willing to let themselfes be plundered, yes or no? Is anyone stupid enough to keep quiet in the process, yes or no? And when a democracy is stupid enough to keep quiet, then it is good! And when a authoritarian government declares: "You do not plunder our people any longer neither from the inside or outside, " then that is bad. (today: think about all the authoritarian states in the arabic world, that are alliies of the west)

 

If we, as a so called "authoritarian state", which differs from the democracies by having the people behind them -  (applause) If we as an authoritarian state had also complied with all the sacrifices that the INTERNATIONAL PLUTOCRATS burdened us with; if I had said in 1933, "Esteemed Sirs in Geneva what would you have me to do?" "Aha! We will immediately write on the slate: 6 billions for 1933, 1934, 1935, excellent, we will deliver! Is there anything else you would like? Yes, ofcourse, Sir, we will also deliver that!" Then they would have said: "At last a sensible regime in Germany."

MH17 Chameleon: Operation Rapid Trident II

 

 

 

The announcement of U.S. BREEZE and RAPID TRIDENT II military maneuvers came on May 21, 2014 by Vice President Joe Biden’s office. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is a newly-named director of the Ukrainian natural gas and oil company Burisma Holdings, Ltd., owned by Ihor Kolomoisky, the Ukrainian-Israeli mafia oligarch, who is known as the «Chameleon». Kolomoisky has raised his own mercenary army, complete with the BUK missiles allegedly used in the shootdown of MH-17. Kolomoisky, the Governor of Dnipropetrovsk oblast in eastern Ukraine, has threatened terrorist attacks against Russian-speaking officials in eastern Ukraine, including assassinations.

they weren't confiscated by the govt but by Kolomoisky's private army (that allegedly has BUK missiles) so who knows where they are now.

Boss of the Ukrainian Mafia, Kolomoisky placed a one million dollar bounty on Ukrainian Member of Parliament member Oleg Tsarev, who fled to Russia after being severely beaten by Ukrainian right-wingers in Kiev. Behind the Crimean crisis Kolomoisky controls power through his Privatbank, “quasi-military forces”, his privately-funded death squads, bounty-hunters from his allies of ultra-nationalist extremists, his gangs of hired thugs and soccer “ultras”.

people don't believe a word of the US narrative , whatever their Govts might be saying in

public.False flag has been mentioned by all.Not a scientific poll for sure, but America

would now have trouble convincing anyone overseas, that the sky is blue right now.

don't mistake democracy and sovereignty with power on the international stage

and since I'm here: over 65% of Greeks still prefer to have the EUR instead of getting back to the Drachma... and their parliament reflects that

Sure, some are speaking out and making some noise, but I wonder if these aren't people who are fed up and normally would just wait to vote their minds.

My concern is the (seemingly) ever growing segment of low-info voters and the ones being indoctrinated at our schools.  The ones that hardly look past their morning/evening news casts and talking points or news clips from this admin, or are convinced America is evil (for another discusion). And as evidenced by this past election if there is not a viable alternative, these people will continue to default to the DNC.

Whether enough people will vote against the status quo in order to change 'the new normal', is the $64,000 question.

I still maintain that "the public is stupid" - or at least enough of them are..

Wed, 07/23/2014 - 12:37 | 4993479 SofaPapa
SofaPapa's picture

What you've said here puts us in a different arena.  As to the "low-info voters", we see things differently, though I respect your view.  You see that segment of the population growing, and I see it shrinking.  Not much we can talk about there.  We have differing perpectives.

As to "whether enough people will vote against the status quo in order to change 'the new normal'," that's a whole other kettle of fish.  The system is far too rigged for this to be possible.  This has nothing to do with what people think or want anymore.  Whatever the population actually wants (where you and I are in mild disagreement), the power structure has designed the election process such that fundamental change to the status quo is no longer possible through that venue.  All positions for national office are pre-selected to fall to one of from two to four acceptable candidates (i.e. the "pre-primary funding battle").

I have said before that when there is fundamental change in this country, it will not look like what we have seen for the past 150 years.  I think people are waking up, but the level of charge required to effect genuine systemic change is going to be substantial.  We're not remotely close to that level of public anger yet.  On that, you and I can fully agree.

I agree w SofaPapa.  Water cooler talk brings out what people think they're supposed to say - purpose is fitting in.  Talk to those same people for half an hour over a beer, ask questions and listen instead of arguing, and you'll often get a totally different story.  The media's control over what people hear has (apart from the Internet) never been more complete, but their control over our minds is getting very thin.

Not so sure the public is sick of the correct lies, or the real lies.  I think they have become sick of what has been told to them are the real lies, so I think in reality the public will then default to believing the lies from the people they trust most - their morning and evening newscasters, the weather channel peeps and the people in Washington that promise not to cut their EBT cards or to withdraw their ACA subsidies.

And since these same people are all global warming believers, LGBT proponents, suffer from white, male, christian guilt they will be believed more than any reasonable, logical, non-forked tongue speaking person.

Newsweek should have learned that tabloid magazines and newspaper readers now get their news on the Internet. There is, however, a crying need for a well balanced magazine with real reporting and analysis. The only thing you see today are liberal or conservative viewpoints and mostly these just point at the other side and raise unanswered questions. I would love to read a pro-Ukie response to the questions the Russians asked. Instead, there is either no liberal response or it is dismissed as propaganda. Our country is worse off when liberals and conservatives cannot even talk or debate an issue. Do that in a civil manner in a magazine and you might sell more than a few copies.
