Wait a minute, this seems important:
"The IRS filing in federal Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court reveals shocking new information. The IRS destroyed Lerner’s Blackberry AFTER it knew her computer had crashed and after a Congressional inquiry was well underway. As an IRS official declared under the penalty of perjury, the destroyed Blackberry would have contained the same emails (both sent and received) as Lois Lerner’s hard drive.
We all know by now that Lois Lerner’s hard drive crashed in June 2011 and was destroyed by IRS. The emails of up to twenty other related IRS officials were missing in remarkably similar “crashes,” leading many to speculate that Lois Lerner’s Blackberry perhaps held the key. Now, the Observer can confirm that a year after the infamous hard drive crash, the IRS destroyed Ms. Lerner’s Blackberry—and without making any effort to retain the emails from it."
Look! Squirrels!!! ;-)
thankfully the NSA, British, Canadian, New Zealand and Australian 'Intelligence' (in name only) have hoovered up all emails for years... and have copies
then there's the back-up tapes ...because all computer systems above 3rd Grade are backed up.. including those butter fingered idiots at the IRS
so the IRS scrapping of hard drives is to no avail.. we have back-ups.. they can't lose (cough) the back-ups too ..can they?!!!
Hi William, thanks a lot for your great digital works :-)
I wonder if you may consider to create ones to match this very exciting theme in celebrating the recent Jackson Hole meeting aka. "The Committee to Blow Up the World!"
Just imagine, it's pretty cool to watch a super team consisting of Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi and Shinzo Abe blowing up the World...akin to the (in)famous "The Committee To Save The World": Robert Rubin - Alan Greenspan - Lawrence Summers as portrayed in the cover of Time Magazine 1999-02-15 edition.
Or "The Committee to Rip Apart the Financial Regulation Across the Planet": Robert Rubin - Lawrence Summers - Timothy Geithner, see Greg Palast's report.
Here are some background stories for the fantastic theme:
The Committee to Blow Up the World! | Wolf Street
The Committee to Blow Up the World! - Bonner & Partners
There once was a time when "Douchebag" was NOT a synonym for "Mr. President".
Its not a synonym, it is a required qualification for the job.
i wonder if this lack or morality is common to all candidates and bureaucrats of this age bracket, and i think it is, which suggests that the revolution in america should start sooner rather than later
just along for the ride.
Also do not mess with shit or there will be consequenses and reprocussions.
Merkel Schmerkel! We need a true Aryan to lead us! Hulk Hogan FTW!
You cant't fix stupid. But in americas case you can elect him.
Watching CNN lately......... (I don't watch it much)
The propaganda is just so fucking bad.
No way could you get your message so fucked up unless you wanted to fuck up.
The US is being set up.
That German Bitch is just another Stazi agent.
Been watching Fox. The drums of war are beating extremely loudly! It is like a commercial for war 24/7.
Deutchland Uber Alles.
Made in Langley. BAHAHAHAHAH!
Glad someone else noticed that!!
You America-bashers, and anti-Capitalists your anti-semitism is showing. Whenever there is a surge of anti-Capitalism it will ALWAYS be joined with anti-Semitism. For what we think of as the Protestant Ethic, as the foundation of rational enlightened liberty and the Middle Class, we are referring to the Jewish ethic. Sobriety, re-investment into one's business, education, and the entire gamut of "bourgeoise" social values were originally Jewish. If CRONY CAPITALISM is destroying our country and our society PLEASE DO NOT THROW OUT THE BABY WITH THE BATH WATER! FREE MARKET capitalism has made the US wealthy and powerful. How can you possibly believe GERMANY and RUSSIA are somehow more moral and better than we are? BY ALL MEANS we need to restore the limited government as described by the Constitution. When government has few favors to sell, suddenly lobbyists disappear. One more point:Capitalism with an eye out for America's interests is what is needed. NOT neo-confederate Mises Free Trade which is no different than the NWO!
Following is an interesting troll story as told at Common Dreams.
THE DOUBLE IDENTITY of an "Anti-Semitic" Commenter | by COMMON DREAMS Aug 20, 2014
Like many other news websites, Common Dreams has been plagued by inflammatory anti-Semitic comments following its stories. A Common Dreams investigation has discovered that more than a THOUSAND of these damaging comments over the past TWO YEARS were written with a DECEPTIVE PURPOSE by a Jewish Harvard graduate in his thirties who was irritated by the website's discussion of issues involving Israel.
A Common Dreams investigation has discovered that more than a thousand of these damaging comments over the past two years were written with a deceptive purpose by a Jewish Harvard graduate in his thirties who was irritated by the website's discussion of issues involving Israel.
His intricate campaign, which he has admitted to Common Dreams, included posting comments by a screen name, "JewishProgressive," whose purpose was to draw attention to and denounce the anti-Semitic comments that he had written under many other screen names.
The deception was MANY-LAYERED. At one point he had one of his characters charge that the anti-Semitic comments and the criticism of the anti-Semitic comments must be written by "internet trolls who have been known to impersonate anti-Semites in order to then double-back and accuse others of supporting anti-Semitism"--exactly what he was doing. (Trolls are posters who foment discord.)
The impersonation, this character wrote, must be part of an "elaborate HASBARA setup," referring to an Israeli international PUBLIC-RELATIONS CAMPAIGN. When Common Dreams finally confronted the man behind the deceptive posting, he denied that he himself was involved with HASBARA.

Excuse me but liberal Jews seem to have had a penchant for some form of Marxism for the longest time now. They also seem to be devoid of any toletance for Christian or even Deist concepts going back to the foundation of America. Sorry, thought this was all very obvious.
yes but theres a turd in the punchbowl (bathwater) america became wealthy and powerful by staying out of W2 until the other industrial powers were destroyed. then we brain drained the germans, and outsourced the japanese. i think its fair to call america the fifth european empire (spanish, french, british, german (over before it started) and the US. its been a great run, and like all empire supporters (who like their head right where it is) i LOVE the US empire. our values, and morals, our sense of fair play. (so quit spying me on NSA!) i would truly be ignorant to think i could take my money to argentina and get a better deal (as some profess). and i would not even if i could. i want to hang around for the revolution, or hang in the revolution. besides the germans and russians i worry more about the chinese who do not seem to have the collective will to impose a fair and democratic government on the leaders of their litte american manufacturing kiosk. america has always been for sale to the highest bidder, the buffetts and gates, robber barons old and new, who have done nothing for this country. capitalism stands on their record, sadly. find me better capitalists and i will abide. the dude abides.
'Interview With A Zombie':
Your trolling panties are showing! Haifa, much? The 'Semites' are Jews AND Muslims (you like to call everyone else 'gentiles', I realize, dear paid schill, but you are mistaken). NO PORK, SATURDAYS OFF, AND STONING PEOPLE TO DEATH FOR FAILING TO DO WHATEVER YOU TELL THEM TO (LIKE EATING PORK OR WORKING ON SATURDAYS) ARE ALL HIGH AND RIGHTEOUS GOALS THAT SHOULD BE EMBRACED (LIKE THE WHOLE 'GAMUT' OF 'VALUES' IS).
INTERVIEW WITH A ZOMBIE:
A few things...
1) America NEVER had "free market capitalism". In fact, there's no such thing. Markets must be regulated, not "free".
2) "...made the US wealthy and powerful"? I don't think so... More like supplying weapons and resources to warring countries abroad. Then, by hijacking foreign economies a-la empire.
3) Let's not forget that the good 'ol USA caused this current mess. Don't remember Nuland's "F** the EU" thingy? Remember backing a coup to topple the democratically elected government? Remember the 5 billion USD before the coup? None of this rings a bell?
4) Putin, and now Merkyl, are right. This is no longer a uni-polar world. US had their fun for almost 30 years and look where the world is. We're moving back to a multi-polar world and US has to stand down. Let's hope you behave nicely during the relegation.
I think it is fair to conclude you are interacting with a football blogger, one who surfs and blogs in between football (soccer) matches.
I am waiting for him to address the topic of this post: The German leader who is an American sock puppet.
I didn't realize that the STATE (not NATION, but 'STATE') of Israel had any soccer teams. I read a leaflet once, entitled 'Famous Jewish Sports Stars'. Well, I guess I really couldn't read it (the page was blank).
Somewhere in between 'The Balfour Declaration' and 'Operation Paperclip', the people in the CONUS got de-sensitized. People now within do shit to this nation (like creating the CIA or the Federal Reserve, or attacking the U.S.S. Liberty, or pulling off 9/11, or passing USAPATRIOT), and the masses shrug their shoulders and listen to the 'gatekeepers' to tell them what is important (like 'going shopping').
Merkel isn't a 'sock puppet' of the CONUS. She's a 'sock puppet' of a far higher cabal of illuminaries. She'll fold under pressure when Gazprom tells her that all shipments of natural gas must be settled in Rubles this winter. See, she knows that CONUS can't provide stability within the Middle East to insure delivery any more (despite any promises to the contrary). She has the impression that 'She Run Barter Town', but she doesn't (and, worse, she KNOWS IT).
If you are waiting for our Hasbara visitor to discuss Angela Merkel's actions, don't hold your breath too long.
If YOU were the leader of Germany, and was caught between the 'power' (literally) struggles of the multinational oil corporations whom you must rely on to provide power for the people in your nation; what course of action would YOU seek, WB? Personally (purely from a point of view of Angela Merkel), I'd be looking at trying to get the credit rating approval of the new system that Russia and China are implementing; and going behind the scenes to ruch implementation of this new credit system before the western bubble finally pops. It would be SAD for me (a NAZI) to see the suffering and losses of so much we have achieved post-war in the Americas, but in order to ensure the survival of the core of the Reich, actions and sacrifices must be made...
Like a wife who has a course of action in order to initiate a DIVORCE, she is playing the role of a 'sweetheart' to the man she will shortly stab in the back (in order that he be blindsided and defenseless when the moment arrives).
Maybe I'm incorrect, William Banzai, and the intentions of the actors involved are simply something I should give the 'benefit of the doubt' to (I bet you haven't heard THIS expression used in a while!).
IF I'm incorrect, and nothing like this happens, then everything will be good. BUT: IF I'm CORRECT...
You know I'm right about this (if you don't, you need to watch and see in order that I'm proven right; as I always am).
I am going tailhedge on a banzai post because I actually own NYC building 7.
well you own the plot ...no longer the building
look for Israeli's in vans.. the usual culprits
Lets also not forget that Deutsche Bank is one of the largest (maybe the largest?)issuers of various derivatives. As the German economy spirals down due to the sanctions, that bank's implosion will affect all the banks as the chain of derivatives binds them together.
History may show that a little scuffle over a small country adjacent to Russia brought on the Greatest Depression.
That little scuffle, do you mean Serbia, Sarjevo and the Great War (100 years old this summer thank you very much)? That did not bring the depression. There are many expert economists with many "causes" of The Great Deprtession, probably one apiece.
75 years and five days ago was signed the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact. FROM WIKI: The pact's publicly stated intentions were a guarantee of non-belligerence by either party towards the other and a commitment that neither party would ally itself to or aid an enemy of the other party. This latter provision ensured that Germany would not support Japan in its undeclared war against the Soviet Union along the Manchurian-Mongolian border, ensuring that the Soviets won the Battles of Khalkhin Gol.
In addition to stipulations of non-aggression, the treaty included a secret protocol that divided territories of Romania, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Finland into Nazi and Soviet "spheres of influence", anticipating potential "territorial and political rearrangements" of these countries. Thereafter, Germany invaded Poland on 1 September 1939. After the Soviet-Japanese ceasefire agreement took effect on 16 September, Stalin ordered his own invasion of Poland on 17 September. Part of southeastern (Karelia) and Salla region in Finland were annexed by the Soviet Union after the Winter War. This was followed by Soviet annexations of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and parts of Romania (Bessarabia, Northern Bukovina and the Hertza region).
The pact remained in force until the German government broke it by invading the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941.************************************************HERE WE GO AGAIN! But this time, will Britain rise to the occasion? Can she? Or is Britain to be the Netherlands while we recapitulate the role of Great Britain?
I like the Radical Stance.
But are you thinking WWII strength of European Countries. Because if Belgium is buying US LT Treasuries under Euroclear or Clearstream... Belgium has power as NATO HQ.
Plus Cede & Company, Euroclear, Clearstream, JP Morgan own a shit load of Derivatives... and DTCC seems the owner of all this and controller of Congress & FED.
If US Goes to war it is DTCC that wants this.
If European Countries want to go to war... they are stronger now than in WWII, but there strength might be the young men that will fight for them with NATO Systems... which is all tried & True, proven in US Proving Grounds and in Israel.
The Logistics Network for NATO is proven through US Wars in Iraq & Afghanistan.
Dr. Paul has a German supporter....too bad there are not more here.
The US can't even fix the US anymore let alone the problems of the world. Frankly, name me one problem that the USA has fixed for the world lately? Ebola came out of a US BioTerrorism Lab in Sierra Leone
and Wall Street blew up the world financial markets in 08. Americans
don't fix anything except financial markets.
I too listened to Alex Jones for a few years. This will pass, and you will come out of the trance and once more join us, Americans.
I've watched MEL BROOKS for decades.
And, now, its...
'JOIN US, AMERICANS'!
SEE! JEWS IN SPACE!
Oh, shit. I think you've gone in to PLAID!
"I too listened to Alex Jones for a few years." Which ones? Which YEARS, I mean? What year did you STOP LISTENING?
I had to stop listening to William Cooper the year that the Zionist-controlled pigs shot him dead in his front yard (right after he told everyone 'on air' that a false-flag attack would occur in NYC, in July 2001). The MSM report indicated 'tax evasion' or some bullshit.
YOU answer to the Coca-Cola company, I think.
MEIN FURHER! I CAN WALK!
DAMN! You are funny!
Atila: Libertarian view seems to work as an Anti-Fascist Model... I'm just not sure about the Economics of Libertarians.
"The US can't even fix the US anymore let alone the problems of the world."
Congress & US President do what they want and ignore the Problems of Main Street known as Domestic Problems. They are accomplishing Objectives, goals, and tasks on their program... which tends to include wasting Federal Budget Dollars and giving money to Corporate Subsidies (Friends).
We should Create a Fixed Model of Federal Spending and stop increases and new programs... learn how to move money from waste toward new ideas... learn how to audit spending... learn how to
Ah Fuck it. Bring the boys back home, end the war, end the Empire of 400 bases around the world... learn how to control the oceans & middle east with Navy Ships and Air Force from discrete bases.
The US never solved world problems, it always caused them.
muscle behind the usury empire... not the brain.
"US Never Solved Problems, it caused them".
Let's try to apply logic to the premises here.
Bankers, Privileged Elites, Privileged Land Owners, Royalty, People that follow the Talmud, People that Crucify Christians or Kill people of other religions... They cause problems.
In USA we keep saying it is the president or congress, but the problems seem to be "Control" By un-named Elites. Bankers no doubt. Money and control over employment is power.
I'm forgetting a bunch of stuff...
Merkel must be a Follower too... who controls Germany? Well we know we (the USA) provide them with Jobs & Funding at very high levels... plus we have joined them in Military, Intelligence, Technology, and Corporate Relations.
Germany loves the USA. This smacks of Propaganda playing to German Public.
Besides the Fascists behind the scene are joined with our Fascists.
in lands no American has a beef with ..and couldn't place on a map ..the US Govt pounds out its message of Freedom and pushes democracy down foreigners throats
it hasn't worked yet even once ...but who said US foreign policy had to actually deliver?!
Bloody Brilliant! Surely you have seen the movie They Live ?
