Obama better watch his ass. The Zionists have a lot of experience with assassinations.  The only question is which Palestinian would they blame it on?

 

I can't believe how brazen they are.  Wolfowitz and Zakheim call the 9/11 attacks a year early, and now this?

“Three, give the go-ahead for U.S.-based Mossad agents to take out a president deemed unfriendly to Israel in order for the current vice president to take his place, and forcefully dictate that the United States’ policy includes its helping the Jewish state obliterate its enemies.”

So long as Obama outlaws pipelines, you will get your "peak" oil sooner rather than later.  With horizontal drilling becoming perfected, there is at least another generation or two, of easy oil.

But if it can't be connected to a pipe, then Obama's pal Buffet is the one to reap the benefits of higher cost of distribution.

The rest of the EU knows that if Germany leaves the whole EU is done.  Germany wants to leave and leave now before it gets to expensive.  The rest of the EU don't want them to because to much of their economy is tied up in the make believe finance of the Euro and the bonds and loans bought by that currency.  If the Euro goes down, then overnight many of these countries go into a very hard depression along with severe inflation if not hyperinflation.

You are 100% correct, IMHO, except in one small detail: "Germany wants to leave and leave now before it gets to expensive". Wants? This is what the British Media (and per reflection the Anglosphere) is ceaslessly repeating. With all means. Germany is FAR from "wanting", at this stage. They might, in future, but there is no "want", yet.

Get your facts straight, idiot.

Czolgosz was born in Alpena, Michigan[4] in 1873, one of eight children (six sons and two daughters)[5] of Mary (née Nowak) and Paul Czolgosz, Polish Catholic immigrants from Prussia.[2][6]

Fri, 01/20/2012 - 21:55 | Link to Comment economics1996
economics1996's picture

ON SEPTEMBER 6 1901, a 28 year old Polish Jew, Leon Czolgosz, walked into the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo NY where McKinley was speaking and shot McKinley twice in the abdomen at point blank range. McKinley died a week later and “Teddy” Roosevelt was sworn in as President, much to the delight of the NY Jews.

Prior to the assassination, Leon Czolgosz had fallen in with Emma Goldman’s Jewish anarchist crowd at Sach’s Cafe on Suffolk Street, their headquarters in New York City’s Lower East Side. (NYC’s Lower East Side was where Trotsky, owing to Jacob Schiff’s financial support, had recruited many communist Jews to travel with him to Russia to incite the October Revolution of 1917.)

Emma Goldman’s crowd had broken away from main-line socialists who were “under the eye of a paternal government.” Instead, Goldman’s crowd preached that social change could only be achieved through violence and assassinations. They preached that capitalists would never change on their own volition. Thus it was here at Sach’s Cafe that the assassination plot against President McKinley, a “capitalist,” was hatched.

Fri, 01/20/2012 - 22:41 | Link to Comment Gully Foyle
Gully Foyle's picture

economics1996

On September 6, 1901, Leon Czolgosz, an unemployed factory worker and registered Republican with a history of mental illness, shot US President William McKinley twice during a public speaking event in Buffalo, New York. McKinley was hit in the breastbone and stomach, and died eight days later.[58] Czolgosz was arrested, and interrogated around the clock. During interrogation he claimed to be an Anarchist and said he had been inspired to act after attending a speech held by Goldman. The authorities used this as a pretext to charge Goldman with planning McKinley's assassination. They tracked her to a residence in Chicago she shared with Havel, as well as Abe and Mary Isaak, an anarchist couple.[59][60] Goldman was arrested, along with Abe Isaak, Havel, and ten other anarchists.[61]

Earlier, Czolgosz had tried but failed to become friends with Goldman and her companions. During a talk in Cleveland, Czolgosz had approached Goldman and asked her advice on which books he should read. In July 1901, he had appeared at the Isaak house, asking a series of unusual questions. They assumed he was an infiltrator, like a number of police agents sent to spy on radical groups. They had remained distant from him, and Abe Isaak sent a notice to associates warning of "another spy".[62]

Although Czolgosz repeatedly denied Goldman's involvement, the police held her in close custody, subjecting her to what she called the "third degree".[63] She explained their distrust of him, and it was clear she had not had any significant contact with Czolgosz. No evidence was found linking Goldman to the attack, and she was eventually released after two weeks of detention. Before McKinley died, Goldman offered to provide nursing care, referring to him as "merely a human being".[64] Czolgosz, despite considerable evidence of mental illness, was convicted of murder and executed.[65]

Throughout her detention and after her release, Goldman steadfastly refused to condemn Czolgosz's actions, standing virtually alone in doing so. Friends and supporters—including Berkman—urged her to quit his cause. But Goldman defended Czolgosz as a "supersensitive being"[66] and chastised other anarchists for abandoning him.[66] She was vilified in the press as the "high priestess of anarchy",[67] while many newspapers declared the anarchist movement responsible for the murder.[68] In the wake of these events, socialism gained support over anarchism among US radicals. McKinley's successor, Theodore Roosevelt, declared his intent to crack down "not only against anarchists, but against all active and passive sympathizers with anarchists".[69]

"For the present, the next stage in the Illuminati's grand strategy will be something few are expecting, or even think possible. The next world-dominating empire is going to be a Europe forged on the basis of a Berlin-Vatican axis."

The present financial turmoil in Europe is not a disadvantage to Germany. Germany (and the Illuminati) knew when they created the Eurozone that it would lead to a crisis down the road.
 
You can't yoke the currencies of strong nations like Germany with weak nations like Greece, Ireland, and Portugal, without having economic and political unification.
 
Germany is using this crisis to bend the other nations of Europe to its will. It will maintain the euro and the Eurozone, but the other nations will have to submit to de facto German control or be forced out. This includes Britain.
 
And it is forging an alliance with Russia (Medvedev was recently welcomed at the NATO summit). A German-led Europe is turning away from its Anglo-American orientation.
 
Gaining control of the European Union, Germany is preparing to take over from the declining Anglosphere.
 
But it needs something more to cement its control of Europe than economic strength and political will. It needs a spiritual and cultural foundation for its coming empire.
 
ENTER THE VATICAN
 
The Roman Catholic Church has always seen itself as the successor to the Roman Empire. Its ambitions are imperial as well as spiritual. It laid the foundations of Western civilization in Europe.
 
Pope Benedict XVI has worked quickly to restore the Church as the spiritual force that will unite Europe, the way it did in the time of Charlemagne.
 
He has appealed both to traditionalists (e.g., by restoring the Tridentine mass) and to secularists (e.g., by his recent concession with respect to condoms).
 
He has underlined (in his speech at Regensburg) the contrast of Catholicism and Islam, and he has made room for disaffected Anglicans to join the Catholic Church. He is establishing new ecumenical ties to the Lutheran and Eastern churches.
 
Despite the recent scandals affecting the Church, Benedict is on the offensive. A German himself, he is working to forge a united Europe, led by Germany, with the Catholic Church as its spiritual head.

The US looks more and more like those guys who invest so many on their appearance. When the resources dry up, well, you can see them as they are.

It is no surprise that as the resources US citizens are used to plunder are dwindling, suddenly, the true face of US citizenism is showing up in a way US propagandists can not hide.

"Perish the thought that you should allow any of your perishables to perish!"

All work and no play make God's angels dull fellows.

They certainly are far from dull to say the least.

I can assure you of that aspect...

Yes, open season on the "captain".

Here's a man who is not only an awful captain and navigator but an awful liar. And of course, a coward. It seems we are discovering an abundance of these types of people in positions of high responsibility lately.

Always has been, always will be. Some people run TO a crisis, some run FROM a crisis, but most just stand in one spot and do the "squirrel". As I often post, people should come to terms with their own mortality, or head on back to their plastic bubbles.

"Some people run TO a crisis, some run FROM a crisis..."

Exactly right. This is what separates the real leader from a follower. You see it everyday in many things.

A simple car accident will have at least twice the people standing around watching than over at the accident scene helping out before the police & paramedics arrive. Of course, ten fold squirrels will have passed by the time professional help arrives...probably searching for their nuts ;-)

I still don't understand what happened with this stupid cruise ship story. If you run aground -by definition- you're not going to sink.

I mean, depending on the conditions the boat could break up on the rocks etc. but that was hardly the case here.

Underwater topography is as varied as what you find above. You may visualize a boat running into a beach, but the top of an underwater 'spire' a mere 10 feet below the surface may be surrounded by 100-200+ feet of water, even at a shoreline.

you are correct... CAZZO is "dick"...

But it's really kind of irrelevant... An Italian would say "Che Cazzo" (literally translated as "What the dick?)... But it is basically employed to mean WTF?

no, he is not. "cazzo is never directed towards a person (except if you say testa di cazzo), it is impersonal.

you are correct on the "che cazzo/cosa cazzo" as you know when english speaking people use "fuck/fucking" italians use "cazzo".

cazzone = BIG DICK

coione = BALL SACK

look - I realize that it's mostly used impersonal... CAZZO SE DICE (WTF are you saying?, etc.)... But I've heard it used personal as well (though I'll admit that more often than not, something like "pipa", will be used to describe someone's prick)... As you well know... Italia is full of dialects... different areas may use different expressions... So I'll call a truce...

BTW... for those with troubles in anunciation...

CAZZO SE DICE would be pronounced more or less as "KHAT-zo seh DEE-shay" (and even that would depend on if you were speaking proper Italian or some dialect)... Disclosure: I mostly hung around the "proles" & the contandini (farmers), so you know where my bias is...

correct. but you can say to a person "tu sei un cazzone" and you mean that he is someone who does or says foolish things, with a friendly twist. you're generally not really insulting.

if you say "tu (non) sei un cazzo" you're saying he/she is nothing.

coglione can be a real insult and it is used exactly when you would say "you prick".

Here's the thing... Mind you that we are arguing nuances here that are delicate and "quasi imperceptible" to those who don't speak the language...

But here's the GIST... The cartoon said "Vada a bordo, CAZZO"... Basically, "occam's razor"... "Get back on board... COMMA... Cazzo"... Anyone making an emotional utterance like that was probably basically saying... "Get back on board, Goddamit"... or, "Get back on board for fuck's sake"... NOT saying... "Get back on board... DICK"...

In that sense... your interpretation is probably more aligned with what was intended...

Though CAZZO... is still a word that I alwats tended to associate with DICK...

- as VA FANCIULLO was more aligned with fuck

as DIO CANE was more aligned with "Goddammit" (though it is EXTREMELY rare to hear an Italian utter DIO CANE (God Dawg)...

No, no. Va fa in cuolo would loosely translate to: shove something unpleasant up your rectum.

'Va far'ti fottere' would translate to: go have intercourse with yourself.

My personal favorite: Non me rompere le scattole. Literally, 'don't break my boxes.

Now, put it all together.

Va fan'in a cuolo, a tutti! Disgraziati! Cazzo di mincchia... Sta mincchioni. Fa far'ti fottere e la mama, papa, tutta la familia e tutti la raze tuoi!!!!!

Translation? 'Go fuck yourselves in your asses, all of you! Disgraces all of you. Fuck, fuck, fuck you all (in a series mutters). Go fuck yourself, your mother, your father and your entire family and your entire race.'

Pure Sicilian poetry.

generally pippa means masturbation (but it's true that in some dialects it means dick) and I guess that when you heard "tu sei una pippa" (you are of no value) it was meant that way, just like "tu sei una sega".

and now you know why Pippa Middleton brings a smile to all italians. :)

p.s. you can add minchione to the list of good translations for "you prick"

p.p.s. you are also correct that there's too many dialects to know all of them.

"Napoleon, defeated by the proud people of Haiti"

Didn't the Haitians make a pact with the shaman in their uprising with the French?

Napoleon's army was defeated by the Haitian mosquitoes and the ensuing malaria that decimated them into retreating. Having no more sugar cane to export and no use for the port of New Orleans after the defeat at Haiti Napoleon then sold the Louisiana territories to an adept Thomas Jefferson who promptly purchased them.

"(Hitler being the second)" repeated Napoleon's folly in his ww2 invasion of Russia.

Both events that were to this nation's (and others) benefit.

Not a bad idea, resuscitating Napoleon's ghost to entertain the dejected french through the depression with tales of past glory. As he lost it makes it all the more romantic. He's now legend, not reality. I think thats the idea. Instead of crazy rides on Disney roller coaster we'll have crazy cavalry charges on french 3d screens cum reality simulators. Some Nintendo or playstation new fangled interactive, heeby jeeby, blood and glory, reenactment of battles; with you centre piece, getting hacked at by Prussians hussards and Russian cossacks. Tally ho and charge, on those red coats!

Anyways, the french will have to learn what a market economy is all about. No more state monopolies, and statist over-regulation. Global markets have put that illusion to rest.
