"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.

In the 1950's and 60's before and during the cuban missile crisis, our forefathers *got it*, they realized their existenial threat and built and prepared bunkers and food stores.

Today we watch the superpowers with almost WWF wrestler like commentary.  GET READY PEOPLE.

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.

Please listen, buy some rice, buy some beans at your next grocery outing, stockpile lots of food as you are financially able.

Making up common enemies is an unmistakable sign of declining hegemony (which was also the cornerstone of nazi/communist state propaganda) doomed to gradual but sure disappearance. The same old trick over again. Embarrassing and worrisome already.

At least Putin knows he's basically right in estimation of all significant western weak points and should be hurry to help establish an alternative societal and financial system.

Anything on US Cable TV right now is at least partially co-opted, at least as far as foreign policy/world/current/government events are concerned. Start there.

CNN did say that pose the question "Does Putin have American blood on his hands?" in a promo this last weekend. I distinctly remember it.

Great point. At what point will Obama need to lead from behind while NATO jets start bombing the Russian Ukraine border? Is Putin killing his own people? Can we be sure he is not? Look at the evil in his face. Can we take the chance he is not evil? Thankfully he is guilty until proven innocent (which will never happen).

Will Putin be sodomized in a road ditch somewhere?

Its interesting to watch these people work.
