Europe is FIXED!!!! Via Reuters:

Greek police fired tear gas at black-clad youths on Thursday as thousands marched through Athens to mark a 1973 student uprising against the 1967-1974 military dictatorship and protest bitter austerity measures.


Students and teachers, workers and pensioners marched beating drums and chanting "EU, IMF out" in the first public test for a new national unity government charged with imposing painful tax rises and spending cuts to avert bankruptcy.

First the protesters chant / riot.

Now, the Greek police are chanting at the protesters, while they fire tear gas?

With MF Global Money Still Lost, Suspicions Grow


Nearly three weeks after $600 million in customer money went missing from MF Global, the search for the cash has been hampered by the bankrupt brokerage firm's sloppy record-keeping, an increasingly worrisome situation that has left regulators frustrated and customers in the lurch.

The round-the-clock effort has consumed an alphabet soup of federal regulators and criminal investigators, with lawyers sleeping at open desks and each agency commandeering a different conference room at the firm's offices. But as authorities comb through some 38,000 customer accounts, they are growing more suspicious about what went wrong at MF Global, the commodities powerhouse once run by Jon S. Corzine, the former Democratic governor of New Jersey.

"The lost money is sort of like a lost child," said Bart Chilton, a Democratic member of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. "Every day that passes is more and more concerning, and there's less and less hope."

At a bankruptcy hearing on Wednesday, a lawyer for the trustee overseeing the liquidation of the brokerage house would not speculate on the matter, acknowledging simply that the money was still missing.

After MF Global filed for bankruptcy in late October, hundreds of examiners descended on the firm's New York and Chicago offices. S

After MF Global filed for bankruptcy in late October, hundreds of examiners descended on the firm's New York and Chicago offices. Since then, they have been poring over records, verifying customer accounts and interrogating the skeleton staff that remains.

The C.F.T.C. is heading the search for the $600 million missing from the futures business, armed with at least 15 accounting and enforcement staff members on site in New York. The Securities and Exchange Commission is focusing on a separate MF Global unit, as workers report back to bosses in Washington in twice-daily conference calls. Federal prosecutors in New York and Chicago have issued subpoenas, according to one person with knowledge of the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

It is patently ridiculous to reject the consensus on the necessity of the IMF and EU by top politicians, economists and financial professionals. All of these leaders agree that the IMF and EU both not only necessary but essential for the fostering of prosperity, peace, equality and liberty throughout the world. If you're going to criticise a professional entity like the IMF, then you should at least have a PhD in economics or some experience in the financial services industry.

Yes.  Pure Democracy = Mob Rule. 

In general, when people today use "Democracy" as a catch-all phrase to describe Western political systems, they're referring to the benefits of democratic processes within those systems where everyone gets an equal vote on representatives and various issues; not pure Democracy.  In a pure democracy, there's no limit to the type of issue that would be put to vote.  If someone doesn't like what you've said, they can put your life to a vote and with a little bad press, down you'd go.

Pure Democracy does not preclude a formal system of law, all human societies have them; they arise organically.  Systems of Law come into being to address the needs, or shortcomings, of consensus decision making and to prevent consensus systems from devolving into "mob rule" (I.E. the vigilence commitees of San Francisco).  A pure, consensus driven, libertarian social structure does not preclude "The Rule of Law" or sophisticated legal structures. 


The cornerstone of Anglo-Saxon common law, upon which excellent, and elegant, legal structures can be, and are, based, is the inviolable committment that any person, having been accused of a crime, and facing severe punishment, up to, and including, death, shall have the full metre of Justice, and due process, which is accorded to everyone equally and without question.  (What, by the way, is it that the Zero administration, and Zero his own drooling self, simply don't get about The Rule of Law ?)

That’s Greece’s new “Minister of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks” Makis Voridis captured back in the 1980s, when he led a fascist student group called “Student Alternative” at the University of Athens law school. It’s 1985, and Minister Voridis, dressed like some Kajagoogoo Nazi, is caught on camera patrolling the campus with his fellow fascists, hunting for suspected leftist students to bash. Voridis was booted out of law school that year, and sued by Greece’s National Association of Students for taking part in violent attacks on non-fascist law students."

Citizen action in Japan: Take radioactive soil from garden, put in box, mail to Environment Ministry saying 'here--please dispose of properly'.  Government response:  Prompt illegal dumping.

Govt official dumps radiation-contaminated soil

An Environment Ministry official has dumped radiation-contaminated soil near his home in Saitama Prefecture, near Tokyo.

Environment Minister Goshi Hosono revealed this at a news conference on Thursday.

He said a cardboard box containing the soil was sent to his ministry on November 8th from a sender who identifies himself as a resident of Fukushima City.

An enclosed message calls on the ministry to store and dispose of the soil collected from the sender's garden.

The Environment Ministry kept the soil in its warehouse, and the radiation reading taken close to it was 0.18 microsieverts per hour.

A section chief at the ministry said this is no higher than readings taken in many areas in and around Tokyo and suggested he could dispose of the soil in his own garden.

His subordinate then dumped the soil in a vacant lot near his home on Sunday.

This was revealed after another box marked as "ash" was sent to the ministry apparently from the same sender on Wednesday.

The ministry is said to have already retrieved the soil and plans to dispose of it appropriately.

Hosono said he takes the inappropriate dumping of the soil very seriously and apologized. He said it should not have happened, as his ministry has been playing a central role in efforts to clean up areas contaminated with radiation.

Hosono said he will punish the section chief and study taking punitive actions against other senior officials, including himself.

He also said sending radiation-contaminated materials to his ministry will not lead to a fundamental solution to the problem, and called on people not to do so.

The more I think about this Greek thing the sadder I get. The "Olive" countries are very different despite having similar problems. I traveled all alone all through Greece and was not threatened once. They are a brave, yet peaceful people and their streets are very safe.

The same summer I traveled thru southern Italy and southern France. You can have them! Both of these places were liteally overwhlemed with desparate MENA refugees and it is no wonder I was mugged many evenings and twice in broad daylight. Luckily, I was thrashed only once and not too bad. The police there are laughable.

The under-reporting of the seriousness of 300,000 MENA people, poor, unskilled and angry, into these countries is scary. The long term ramification are serious imo.

I would like to see more (how about one!) anaylsis about these social issues.

You are quite right PH29 - and if you think southern Italy and France are good places to get mugged you should visit just about any large city in Europe where you will be able to enjoy the same delightful experience. There aren't just 300,000 MENA immigrants/refugees - there are millions. Then of course there's the US - try strolling around Detroit, for example, or South LA. I'm afraid that people with no future and no hope just can't resist a little easy money when they see it walking past. Oh, and you're also right about the police. They obviously have more important things to do - like coming down with Blue Flu for higher pay & benefits. /s

OWS is following the advice given them by a certain troll who was up there on a certain weekend serving food with a couple of food not bombs chicks.

Breaking storefront windows, arson, and destroying property of mom and pop businesses is despicable and unworthy. I showed them a better way.

Dress in suits or like pizza and chinese delivery personnel. Infiltrate the squid's lair and those of the top five banking oligarchs.

Put itching powder on the toilet paper.
Put small amounts of feces and urine in the coffee pots.
Be creative. It is easy to gain access if you understand their ways.

Drudge is reporting the OWS are dressing in suits to blend in. They do not realize half of it.

question- did anybody here know we now have a "Federal Protective Services" police force run by the DHS? well, we do and they are arresting OWS protesters in Portland. According to the article jurisdiction over the property is jointly shared by the city, state and federal govt. the arrests were made in enforcement of a ban on overnight encampments, oddly enough though the photos of the arrests were all clearly taken during daylight hours. one of the "perps" was a photographer (surprise, surprise).

Anyways the point is we now have a federal police (security) force doing what even the FBI hasn't dared in this, arresting protesters exercising their rights to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly on property that isn't even wholly theirs. I'm fairly sure an argument can be made that this is illegal, but as is the case with all banana republic dictatorships laws hardly matter and are only trotted out when it is convenient for the PTBs.

It is high time when the citizens of some country stood up against the cartel of bankers and politician­s and told them to stuff it. 

At least some people in the Eurozone have balls to stand up for their country before their tax revenues and their future country's income is looted by the too big to fail institutio­ns. The best option for the people of Greece is to default on their loans and let the bondholder­s pay for making stupid investment­s.

So...  no systemically important (in the EUROZONE's eyes) entities have looted anything or put anyone on the hook yet?  Really?  If you're trying to get at the point that it's really the sovereigns themselves (laugh at the term), then what difference is there?  Who comes running to benny every time they need a swap infusion?  Who comes running to the TBTF banks to figure out ways of running up debt off balance sheet?

No, they, just as everyone else, are way, way late to the party...  as in decades too late.

There is nothing proactive/with foresight about their actions...  those people with "balls" are merely reactionary after feeling the squeeze of the credit noose.

As we travel the road to Serfdom, a powerful book from Kirk MacKenzie invokes biblical passages and declares: “We’ve been here before.”

The hopes and dreams for our retirements and our children’s educations and futures have plunged; our protests in Washington, D.C., have been called Astroturf by Nancy Pelosi, and we fast are becoming serfs in the land of plenty bequeathed us by our forefathers. What happened?

Here are the roots, in part, of how we got here, from MacKenzie’s book: Money: Defending your Prosperity :

The Book of Genesis tells the story of Israel’s favorite son, Joseph. Perhaps it is time to objectively reevaluate him and compare what he did to modern day.  Joseph was so arrogant, even Israel (his father) rebuked him and his 11 brothers sought to murder him outright (Bible verses 37.8, 10, and 24)…

Joseph eventually was cast into a pit by his brothers and “was saved by the Midianites, taken to Egypt, and sold to Potaphar, Pharaoh’s captain of the guard. Joseph prospered until he was imprisoned for the alleged rape of Potaphar’s wife. He was eventually released and taken to Pharaoh, to whom he laid out a scheme to confiscate 20% of all corn production to be stored in Pharaoh’s storehouses.

41.33 Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.

41.34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers (tax collectors) over the land, and take up the fifth part [ 20% tax] of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

“Pharaoh agreed, promoted Joseph to rule the land second only to Pharaoh and gave Joseph the officers to enforce the tax. For seven years this was done.

After seven years of plenty, crop production declined. The people, deprived of the ability to save their excess corn against their own future needs, were forced to buy corn from Pharaoh. Joseph was put in charge and in short succession from the people took their money, their animals, their lands, and finally their freedom. Put to work as serfs on lands they once owned, the people were forced to continue paying Joseph a tax of one-fifth of their crops (verses 41.50, 48.14, 48.15-17, 48.20, 48.23 and 48.24).

 Example: 41.56 relates:  And the famine was over all the face of the earth; and Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians… 48.20:  And Joseph bought all the land of Egypt for Pharaoh, for the Egyptians sold every man his field because the famine prevailed over them; so the land became Pharaoh’s… 48.23: Then Joseph said unto the people…here is seed for you, and ye shall sow the land… 48.24: And it shall come to pass in the increase, that ye shall give the fifth part unto Pharaoh, and four parts shall be your own.

Thus, deprived of their ability to save for their own futures, the People eventually lost their money, livestock, lands and homes, and their freedoms; turned into serfs on lands they once owned.”

I call it the Rothschild Plan – the merger of our governments with the central bankers.

JR's picture

This version is representative of almost all others. For instance, The New International Version of the Life Application Bible reads like this:

41:56: When the famine had spread over the whole country, Joseph opened the storehouses and sold grain to the Egyptians, for the famine was severe throughout Egypt. 57 And all the countries came to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph...42.3: Then ten of Joseph's brothers went down to buy grain from Egypt...

Iv've read these passages many times, as you have,  but did not realize the economic implications that MacKenzie saw. The  recordings in the Bible continue to speak to current events.

The Greeks can riot all they want.  They can burn down every building.  When there is no money to pay for what you want, even massive violence will not get that for you.  Overthrowing the Govt will not make money appear out of nowhere.


What is happening in Greece willl soon come to every country in the world, every state in the U.S.  For over 40+ years they have played the ponzi scheme of promising things that CAN NEVER be realized for most of the participants.  Most of it has to do with retirement benefits and social programs.  People want to pay $100 per month for 30 years and then receive $5000 per month in payouts for the next 30 years - no matter what rate of return you attach to it, the math never works.  People are going to have to come to the stark realization they were lied to and will never ever get what they think they are owed.  No amount of violence can change  the scheme that was played on the populations.

You are right of course but you omit one crucial aspect.

The designers of this racket are well established, well financed and could care less about the masses that paid into the racket all those years and believed the lies and the propganada it was peddled by those in charge.

Of course it's bogus! But like any other MLM or PONZI scam, the top makes off with billions while the rest goes broke in the process.

We don't need THEM, they need US to believe and to be patient and to be humble and modest and expect THEM to take care of US.

247... Overthrowing the government will not make money appear out of nowhere?  It does for Ben.

Central bankers can make money out of nothing.  Explained Sir Josiah Stamp, president of the Bank of England and the second richest man in Britain in the 1920s: “The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin. Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and with a flick a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again.  Take this great power away from them and all great fortunes like mine will disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in. But if you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit.” (Speaking at the University of Texas, 1927)

As for, People want to pay $100 per month for 30 years and then receive $5000 per month in payouts for the next 30 years…

Don’t judge me by what others pay.  I’ll be paying $14,204 into “social security” this year (less than the $15,000 plus because of a temporary “state-of-the–economy reprieve).  And then be taxed on what I receive back at retirement…   How much better if I had been allowed to keep that money and invest it myself in a medium of exchange  that had an intrinsic value, was scarce, and was resistant to counterfeiting, i.e.,  had a stable value, that itself neither declined or increased in value…

Research N17-Greece, then look at the poster created for todays NYC Direct Action (your first thought might be Tiananmen Square-but you'd be wrong)..the Greeks and people in Europe know what this poster represents-and its related to the Greece anniversary and N17).

Now look at the day of their suppossed 2 month anniversary, twitter hashtags (#N17), etc., so you still think these people are the 99% starting some grassroots action and this is all a coincidence-or perhaps, the true revolutionaries behind the scenes are pushing the buttons, stirring the pot, i.e. cloward and piven/salinsky style. Revolutionaries really love the symbolism of their dates, don't they? 

I love the lack of a message too, they're very proud of that and advertising that fact, might they be just waiting for someone to arise with  a clear message once all hell breaks loose, perhaps someone behind the scenes who has all this figured out already, just waiting for his moment.. who could that be?  Hmmm, van jones is such a polite and smart figure with all sorts of great ideas..we'll see, we'll see..Do your research, know who you support, know what you believe in, and don't go to where the government tells you where to go. 

We will all have to choose sides soon. Get prepared people, people are about to eat each other... Be able to protect and feed your family, loved ones and neighbors.  Be a lifeboat to someone..this is the only way we'll make it through without turning in a totalitarian regime.

I really can't believe I'm writing this times have changed and would love to go back to the times when I had my head in the sand..Now its all about preparing and protecting my family...Good luck everyone..
