LAST WEEK IN MAYHEM
h/t CTTM for this weeks information
1) US Troops Accused of Executing Children
For some time now we have predicting a deterioration of the situation in Pakistan. Coincident with that, we are now seeing an escalation of war crimes in neighboring Afghanistan, with a specific eye to border regions and the Federal Administered Tribal Areas. Last week we saw the brutal execution of innocent children by US special forces. The military purpose here is to destabilize the border regions and to cause civil war.
The problem , however, is that these actions are completely illegal and immoral and are causing immense suffering to innocent people who have nothing to do with state-sponsored terrorism or the operations of clandestine agencies. These are innocent women and children who are now being executed for political purposes at the hands of Western powers.
Here is the account of the incident:
“At around 1 am, three nights ago, some American troops with helicopters left Kabul and landed around 2km away from the village,” he told The Times. “The troops walked from the helicopters to the houses and, according to my investigation, they gathered all the students from two rooms, into one room, and opened fire.” Mr Wafa, a former governor of Helmand province, met President Karzai to discuss his findings yesterday. “I spoke to the local headmaster,” he said. “It’s impossible they were al-Qaeda. They were children, they were civilians, they were innocent. I condemn this attack.”
In a telephone interview last night, the headmaster said that the victims were asleep in three rooms when the troops arrived. “Seven students were in one room,” said Rahman Jan Ehsas. “A student and one guest were in another room, a guest room, and a farmer was asleep with his wife in a third building.
“First the foreign troops entered the guest room and shot two of them. Then they entered another room and handcuffed the seven students. Then they killed them. Abdul Khaliq [the farmer] heard shooting and came outside. When they saw him they shot him as well. He was outside. That’s why his wife wasn’t killed.”
A local elder, Jan Mohammed, said that three boys were killed in one room and five were handcuffed before they were shot. “I saw their school books covered in blood,” he said.
Silence is consent, folks. Are you going to bring this up during your lunch break?
2) Can't photograph Christmas Lights in Britain
Andrew White from Brighton was questioned under terror laws for taking photos of Christmas lights
Well well , in actions that would make Orwell proud, the flagship of the new order , Great Britain, has detained and questioned an amateur photographer for taking pictures of Christmas lights. Yes, this is really happening. This is not chance, this is not an error, this is political policy handed down from large well-funded think tanks to be implemented as law worldwide. This is why we are seeing similar incidents in the First World, although Great Britain seems to be furthest ahead. Make no mistake though, such Orwellian idiocy is coming here soon.
We can already see it through the implementation of such invasive and repulsive security measures as "naked body scanners." (in addition to "take off your shoes! take off your belt. do not get out of your seat during the last hour of flying. your papers please!" Are you going to consent to this? I sure as hell won't. In fact, if you consent to this, you deserve what's coming -- for being a moral coward unwilling to stand up to totalitarian State policy which gets worse with each passing day. The government has no right to scan your naked body, nor tell you that you are not allowed to take photographs, nor enter your home without a warrant, and this policy must be non-violently refused. Do not let this world turn into East Germany.
An amateur photographer taking pictures of Christmas lights was questioned by police under anti-terror laws.
Andrew White, from Brighton, was taking pictures in a busy town centre in nearby Burgess Hill when he was spotted and followed by two Police Community Support Officers.
They stopped him and asked why he had been taking pictures and if he was a professional photographer.
Mr White, 33, asked why they wanted to know and was told it was to do with counter-terrorism legislation.
Police said he was stopped for 'taking too many photographs in a busy shopping area'.
Unbelievable really. Luckily , we can still take pictures here in DC, though it's unclear for how long, considering how fast Great Britain is slipping into a totalitarian wonderland. All aboard the fail whale!
3) Soros Suggests Using IMF
Gold Reserves to back SDR wealth transfer
George Soros , a high-ranking demon, lays out plans for the IMF to use its gold reserves for green loans from rich to poor nations at the Copenhagen climate summit.
Mr Soros [waddled] into the Copenhagen climate change talks this morning, explaining that the “not sufficient” money offered by developed nations to help out developing countries is threatening to “wreck the talks”.
He claims to have “found a way to bridge the gap” between the two sides, calling on the 192 governments at the summit to listen to his proposals.
Mr Soros believes that developed countries should hand over their “special drawing rights” – international foreign currency assets distributed by the IMF – as loans to help poorer nations tackle climate change.
Developing countries would pay interest and eventually the whole loan, but in the event of a default, the sum would be backed by the IMF’s gold reserves.
I don't know about you, but where I come , politically directed wealth transfer is known as 'socialism', and invariably benefits well-connected elites -- never the poor. Transferring our remaining sovereign gold completely to the IMF as collateral to supposedly 'help the poor'? Hahahah! A smarter policy here would seem to me to be to provide 0% interest loans for productive activity to the people of poor nations, for purposes of agriculture, textile industry, and so forth. A first step would be to nationalize the Federal Reserve and tell the loan-shark IMF to take a hike. But that would make too much sense, wouldn't it?
Instead Soros's proposal is for us (the United States) to fork over SDR's to the IMF (the new World Central Bank) , somehow collaterize these as gold-backed loans in the form of SDRs, and then force developing nations to pay SDR interest back to the IMF? Hahaha! Great work if you can get it. No wonder Soros is well known as an international banking criminal. I believe he was indicted in France if I am not mistaken. Regardless, the point here is that policy is being directed by banking elites for purposes of strengthening the IMF's role as global central bank -- and strengthening the global currency role of the SDR -- not for the benefit of the poor or middle class, whether we are talking about the First World or the Third World. The world must be understood within a framework of international oligarchical monopolistic finance capital if policy directives are to make any sense.
Remember in Orwell's 1984 that Emmanuel Goldstein's book, which was banned by Big Brother, was titled "The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism" -- mirroring the structural changes presently taking place worldwide between 2000-2050.
4) Ireland Going Cashless
SHOPPERS and businesses will be using more plastic and less paper money quite soon under a new Government plan to reduce the amount of hard cash in circulation.
A task force will be set up in the new year to come up with ways to cut down on cash transactions in the economy, the Irish Independent has learned.
Ireland is going cashless! Oh poor M0!! Now our favourite monetary aggregate going to plummet. But really what is behind this is a proxy for further government control. Cash is connected with anonymity, black markets, freedom of transaction, tax avoidance , and so forth. In a sense, cash (while it still functions prior to currency crisis) is a means of freedom of exchange of both use-value and exchange-value. When a government implements a policy to eliminate cash, we must consider the motives behind this.
Last year, during one of the housing bailout bills, a rider was attached which mandated that all credit card transactions be reported directly to the IRS. Most people are not aware of this. The purpose of this mandate is not for tax purposes, but rather for data mining and profiling under resurrected TIA (total information awareness) programs. A similar situation is likely the case in Ireland. Governments love data, especially with advancements these days in massive computational data mining for individual profiling, under the auspices of Western defense contractors(cough Booz Allen, Mitre, Mantech, cough) operating in conjunction with the National Security Agency.
Regardless, as long as cash still functions, it will be important for us to demand the ability to operate in cash, as this provides us with the freedom of anonymity and the ability of our transactions to avoid government and corporate data mining. Say yes to cash!
5) UK State Can Invade Homes to Ensure Eco-Friendly Appliances Used
The 20,000 snooper army: Vast number of town hall bureaucrats get power to enter your home without a warrant
Snoopers: Town hall bureaucrats now have powers to enter homes without warrants
As many as 20,000 town hall snoopers have assumed powers to enter people's homes without a warrant and search for information, a survey revealed last night.
The research details for the first time how a raft of intrusive laws has allowed council staff to barge into homes and businesses uninvited.
These include checking for fridges which do not have the correct eco-friendly energy rating, making sure a hedge is not too high and inspecting a property to ensure 'illegal or unregulated hypnotism' is not taking place.
As mentioned earlier, Great Britain is often the first place Orwellian policies are implemented prior to such policy going worldwide to other Commonwealth states, ultimately appearing in the United States. In Great Britain, local councils (vaguely reminiscent of 'Soviets') are allowed to enter homes without warrants to make sure eco-policy is implemented.
In November, I warned that global warming was a scam being used to implement Orwellian State policy. Many could not understand or believe this. Now we see how this is happening, namely, that environmental regulations are being used as a pretext to enter people's homes in Great Britain. This soon no doubt will be implemented in Canada, and ultimately worldwide.
The government can enter homes in the UK -- without a warrant! -- to check the energy star ratings on appliances! If this is not insanity I'm not quite sure what is. What needs to happen here is simply non-violent refusal. If a bureaucrat shows up at your door , you send him away. Neighborhoods must organize to have these individuals fired. Their houses must be picketed. They must be shamed for their reprehensible actions. These people have no right to enter your home, regardless of the policy directives of Soviet-style councils, and these policy directives must be non-violently refused if we are to have any hope of putting a stop to this insanity during 2010.
So remember, do not let the wolf in your house!
6) Pakistan volleyball tournament explodes into 2010
(CNN) -- The death toll climbed to 99 on Sunday after a suicide car bomb exploded Friday in the middle of a group of men playing volleyball in northwest Pakistan, police said.
Thirty-six others who were injured in the attack remained hospitalized Sunday, said Mohammed Ayub Khan, police chief of the Lakki Marwat district. Those killed included at least six children, and most of the other victims were teenagers who were watching the volleyball game, he added. People who lived near the volleyball court also were among the casualties.

So as predicted, Pakistan continues its rapid descent into chaos, destabilized by the clandestine activities of foreign intelligence agencies. A serious political crisis should occur in 2010, with a real possibility of civil war. In the latest foreign Affairs issue (Jan-Feb 2010), Zbigniew Brzezinski makes it relatively clear Iran is temporarily off the table, but Pakistan is very much on the table. It is possible a deal was cut with Israeli policy elites. The Western political establishment does not want simultaneous war in Iran and Pakistan. These wars are apparently going to be sequential. More analysis on this tomorrow.
On the bright side, it is clear Brzezinski is afraid of the blogs, which his specifically mentions in his new article. That, my friends, is very encouraging. This means we are doing our job.
Have a great week! Happy New Year!
THIS WEEK IN MAYHEM
Construction spending comes in Monday, Factory Orders on Tuesday. Watch for the ADP unemployment report on Wednesday and Jobless Claims on Thursday, ahead of the consumer credit report on Friday. Should be a somewhat interesting week, given that it is the first 'real' week after the holidays. Gold has started out the week by rebounding to $1121 after end-of-year mark-to-market which occurred below $1100. We expect gold to continue rising through the summer of 2010.
