Greece Is Just the Beginning. ISIS and Ukraine Are Skirmishes: “The Real War is Economic and Currency Related”

Editor’s Note: Between the manipulation of gas & oil prices, to the contentious events in Ukraine, with ISIS in the Middle East and the new debt bomb in Greece, there is little doubt for anyone paying attention that a currency war is definitely underway.

The only question is: who will prevail, and who is holding a stronger hand?

Greece alone has the potential to unravel the Euro-zone and shatter the fragile dominoes across the global financial markets. And that’s just one area that is exploding.

Though Russia is taking a hit from the falling gas prices, and the combined effect of sanctions, it has also been furiously stockpiling gold and working with China and the BRICS nations to build a counter-balance to international development and currency manipulation, as SHTF has reported.

Something huge is happening with currencies on the global scene, but it is a quiet war – you won’t hear about it on the mainstream news. Just make sure it doesn’t sneak up on you; instead, be as prepared as you possibly can for whichever why the wind blows and the hammer falls. Have you considered your plan? Have you invested in gold, silver, storables or valuable barter items?

Are You Ready For Total Currency War?
By Ron Holland

“Are you ready for total war?” “Sind Sie bereit für totalen Krieg?” – Joseph Goebbels

On February 18, 1943, German Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels delivered a rousing speech at the Berlin Sportpalast, asking the German people, “Sind Sie bereit für totalen Krieg?” or “Are you ready for total War?” Germany had planned for Blitzkrieg and a short war and was unprepared for a world war as the combined military forces of the United States, England and the Soviet Union crushed the Reich relentlessly and systematically. Although the people and economy rallied in defense of Germany, total war only prolonged the horrors of war and delayed their inevitable defeat.

Today, 72 years later, another quasi-fascist empire formerly at the pinnacle of world economic power is being taken over, this time on the economic front, by China and the BRICs. Yet it retains the ability to project military power on every continent, with troops deployed in over 150 countries, and is involved simultaneously in regions ranging from Europe and the Ukraine, across the Middle East and Africa to the nations in Asia surrounding China.

The leadership of most foreign vassal states are threatened, bought off or blackmailed into doing the empire’s bidding lest they be overthrown and replaced through covert black-ops that often masquerade as homegrown domestic uprisings like the Arab Spring or the Ukraine coup in 2014.

Non-cooperating foreign nations, central banks, domestic nationalists and powerful centers of influence are threatened with state trade sanctions, individual sanctions and blacklisting, banking prohibitions and bond-rating downgrades in addition to other economic and outright military threats. The empire’s powerful propaganda machine based in New York and London that, when needed, can within only weeks turn former allies into evil despots without cause, reason or evidence.

An unforgiveable crime is to threaten the mountains of government debt and endless trillions in derivatives issued by vassal state governments led by controlled foreign political leaders where old bond offerings are simply rolled over, along with interest owed, into new obligations. This further burdens citizens and taxpayers just so favored global investment banking interests in the US, UK, Germany and others can continue their fee and commission gravy train.

Greece is the Achilles Heel of the European Union

But the cardinal sin for a politician or political leader is to threaten the ruling entity, as Greece is now doing with the European Union. The EU has a ruling junta of unelected politicians and banking bond-holding interests hiding behind political leaders like Merkel in Germany. This modern-day creation of a permanent union built upon the fatal flaw of the American union, where formerly sovereign states are free to join but can never leave, is a recipe for disaster.

This was the case with the Civil War in the United States or today in Greece, with the total economic destruction and destitution of both the state and the people to foreign banking interests and debt slavery. This permanent debtor status to German and other banking interests appears to even preclude Greece getting financial help from Russia or China.

Make no mistake; tiny Greece does threaten the survival of the EU monstrosity. Should Greece prevail in its efforts to separate from the EU, Italy, Spain, Portugal and other nations will surely follow its bold path back to prosperity, independence and sovereignty, not possible without a dramatically weakened euro.

The Establishment Media Insures the Currency War Is a Secret War

“The first casualty when war comes is truth.” – Hiram Johnson a Republican politician from California who served in the United States Senate for nearly 30 years.

Thanks to the establishment propaganda media outlets – all major cable news channels including the neocon Fox News – relatively few Americans are able to see the ongoing global dollar and economic wars raging from Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Iran to Greece and the Ukraine. Most assume the EU banking assault on Greece in response to its threats to leave the European Union and its bond debts to German banks is a separate economic issue from US and EU financial sanctions against Russia. Likewise, there is little discussion and even less understanding by Americans about how the ISIS movement, originally created by the US as a moderate faction against the Syrian government, suddenly morphed into the Sunni Caliphate movement now controlling the majority of Syria and Iraq.

The real question is whether this economic and financial war being waged between Washington and vassal states including the supra-national European Union versus the Russia/China alliance will remain an economic and currency war or go hot over ISIS and nationalistic resistance. The ultimate goal of the empire is to maintain the survival of the petrodollar energy market priced in dollars – and that is the reason behind the ultimate US goal, which is to wrest control of oil and gas pipelines through Iraq, Syria and the Ukraine from opposition regimes.

As an American, I’m writing here about a coverup of an ongoing war between Washington, London and the EU versus Russia and China. The EU, historically a vassal state controlled by Washington, is now being pushed into a military conflict over Ukraine. Today there is a policy rift taking place between Germany’s Merkel, joined by other major European countries, and the formerly dominant US/UK leadership as to whether military weapons should be provided to the American-installed government in Kiev.

Europeans Remember the Horrors of World War Two

What most Americans do not realize is that during World War Two, every European nation had at least a contingent of troops fighting on the side of Germany against the Russians – and Russians are tough fighters. Putin’s 80% approval rate in Russia dwarfs the popularity of every Western politician and political party. It is difficult to imagine German or French troops fighting and dying for Merkel or Hollande on the plains of the Ukraine, formerly part of Russia, where millions of Soviet troops died during the Second World War.

While the usual neocon spokesmen like John McCain and Lindsey Graham might want the US involved in a military conflict with Russia in the Ukraine, and uneducated Americans might even go along with them, Europeans know their history and are rightly horrified at the prospect.

Remember, the old Soviet Union during the World War was a hated communist government led by a tyrannical dictator. Active military conflicts are tough for politicians to justify unless there is a cultural, religious, patriotic or ethnic aspect to the military action. Joseph Stalin, one of the world’s greatest tyrants, was able to get the Russian people behind his war with Hitler only because to the public, defeat meant either lifetime serfdom or death under the foreign Nazi regime. The cruelty of the German and SS armies ultimately guaranteed their defeat; although in many areas they were initially welcomed as liberators, eventually military occupation by the Nazis became equal to or worse than the terrors of Stalin and the Soviet Union.

Today the Internet Limits the Effectiveness of Government Propaganda Efforts

Governments and politicians now have to deal with the Internet Reformation where alternative media outlets often present an entirely different view of war and financial market manipulation than does the establishment media with their sanitized video footage supported by “patriotic” propagandistic editorials and financial news comments.

While historically the Washington Empire was somewhat benign and even helpful to former adversaries following World War Two, US incursions over the last two decades have been more of a horror story of nation destruction than liberation and prosperity – witness Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and Yemen just to name a few. Of course, all nations and empires compete and none of our competitors from Russia, China or Iran etc. are ruled by saints or without their own atrocities but retribution does happen and the chickens do come home to roost when nations or empires lose in military, economic or currency wars. Sadly, the innocence of civilians is no protection when the surging tides of empire turn.

Innocence Does Not Offer Protection

Ask the hundreds of thousands of Germans who were drafted into the Volkssturm in the last year of World War Two, given a Panzerfaust and marched to the front to attack Soviet tanks and defend the Nazi leadership in Berlin. Or consider the innocent civilians in a firebombed Dresden where tens of thousands were roasted alive or suffocated by the allied terror bombing at the end of the war, not to mention the hundreds of thousands in Japan who were victims of fire-bombing and atomic bomb attack.

Personally I don’t plan on defending American politicians in Washington from foreign or domestic assault or the central banking cartel and Wall Street investment bankers who ultimately will destroy the world in a sea of debt. But emergency presidential executive orders guarantee we will not be able to protect our retirement funds, savings and investment portfolios from confiscation when the chickens come home to roost on the Washington Empire.

If we have some wealth or property left when the dollar fails, we cannot stop the future “means testing” of our Social Security and Medicare benefits. Much of our domestic real estate holdings may well be stolen by favored groups and individuals when we can’t pay the exorbitant annual property taxes just like much property in the defeated South was taken by northeastern “carpet baggers” after the War Between the States – or lost during the Great Depression, which is a more likely scenario for comparison of what all productive Americans will face in the future.

Right now there is a world war taking place right in front of us but all we see on cable news are the nightly military skirmishes on the periphery of the conflict. The real war is economic, financial and currency related and the empire is already over-extended in debt, military operations and financial manipulation. Surely the near-term dollar strength is evidence that while defeat is not imminent and that all markets can be manipulated for a season, ultimately real global market forces will prevail.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late

Americans should take advantage of recent dollar strength to diversify into gold, investments, real estate and safe haven locations outside the US dollar and the United States. Better to be early than too late because eventually the consequences of aggressive military actions, central banking manipulation and uncontrolled government debt and unfunded liabilities will come home to the American people. Neither the guilt of our political and banking leadership nor the innocence of our citizenry will protect you, your assets or your family. (Ron will be speaking more on this topic at the May 13-17 High Alert Investment Conference.)

Don’t wait for a Greek withdrawal from the EU, a run on euro debt, a third US invasion of Iraq, war against ISIL or an escalation in Syria or the Ukraine in an attempt to secure oil and gas pipelines to act. Just remember that all empires eventually become over-extended financially, economically or militarily and the consequences of retribution and blowback are real and deadly to innocent populations.

    I can’t take it anymore….

    • Billy Hill says:

      Can’t take what? Being the first to post but not have anything to say? 🙂

      • Npgh says:

        @Billy…no. I read the article. I need some good news. Every fucking day the news gets worse. Should I apologize to you for being the first? Would that satisfy you?
        Our dollar is worth nothing.
        We are taxed without being represented.
        The west should have taken a hard stance against Islam on 9/12/01. (Bombed them to oblivion)
        They animals are beheading Christians.
        We are heading, if not we are already there, into WW3.

        I WANT SOME GOOD NEWS!

        • Npgh says:

          @Billy…here is one of the headlines that make me sick.

          “Obama Says We Should Address the Grievances that Terrorists Exploit”

          http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/02/19/obama-says-world-should-address-grievances-that-terrorists-exploit-defends-jobs/

          Not to mention that the a-hole in charge let in millions of illegals that are now spreading disease in our country. By the way…Syrians are now given “amnesty” too. This should end well…

          • Calgagus says:

            to Npgh
            Heres some good news.
            Theyre scared of us.
            If they werent they wouldnt have militarized the cops, bought the stockade filled w/ ammo or pushed illegals to being legal w/ the ability to vote.
            Theyre scared all right. Thats why they will control the internet. They know we got them figured out.
            Dont let your guard down brother. There are more of us than there are of them. We WILL win this in the end.
            Sight in. Be prepared.

            • Mountain Trekker says:

              Speaking of economics, this issue of banning xm855 greentip ammo could just be the tip of the iceberg, many on this site state how other ammo is just as good or better. But thats not the point, it’s a matter of Big Brother taking another right, just stop and give this a thought, ban steel core ammo and whats next. Anyone ever hear TPTB talk about banning lead in ammo because it is an environmental issue? Well just wait until all bullets are mad from Copper. Well lets see, Lead prices are around .75 cents a pound and Copper is around $2.15 a pound, wonder how much a 1000rds of ammo will cost us at that price when the only thing we can get is Copper Bullets. Trekker Out. Copper, The Other Precious Metal!

              • Mountain Trekker says:

                When all projectiles have to be made from Copper, wonder how much practice, plinking and stocking up we will be able to do. Trekker Out. Hope Your Wealthy!

                • durangokidd says:

                  The dollar as a weapon? It should come as no surprise to anyone here. Someone here has been saying for YEARS that the dollar was the weapon of choice for the New World Order. Its their world currency.

                  Just saying. Its in the archives. 🙂

                • hammerhead says:

                  Excellent point MT,
                  This very subject came up at the sportsmans club last month.
                  Copper projectiles will not allow us to practice or hold some shooting events.
                  Too damn expensive.
                  But i am sure thats all part of the long term goal.

                  I say , stock up on anything you can git yer mitts on !

                • TheGuy says:

                  There is a rather interesting alternative to lead actually.

                  Google is my friend ^^

                  You want the lead for the density. I guess you could do depleted uranium which is more dense but eh dying of cancer doesn’t appeal to me.

                  But… there is an actual alternative that is not depleted uranium.

                  Probably still more expensive unless they can start doing high volume production, but not like copper or anything.

                • TheGuy says:

                  Of course…

                  In one form it might… shatter. In another form with the… added… “stuff”… it might really eff up your barrel over time… leaving little trails of goo…

                  Dunno. Never seen it tried. That’s what I’d be worried about though.

              • TPSnodgrass says:

                That is precisely WHY, you should have already stocked up on them, plus, reloading components. That way, when the prices go through the roof, you don’t need to be concerned.
                If you haven’t started getting your necessary supplies together, no time like now to start.

              • Calgagus says:

                Mt Trekker
                Reloading helps but its better to go all in. Make your own bullets. Been doing that for a year now. Get the tooling and supplies now. Youll have the best barter item for miles.

            • Focus says:

              Amen to that Calgagus.

              I couldnt agree more. Its disheartening listening to all this doom and gloom. I just focus on preps and staying informed. However, at the end of the day I come to that same conclusion. Today im just another guy working a 9-5 and thats fine because i know theres millions of other guys just like me. Checking the real news, stacking ammo, and waiting for the right moment. I also know that anyday could be that day. The day when everything changes… the day we stop taking this tyranny laying down and the real patriots out there band together to set things straight. Until that day comes I take comfort in knowing im not alone. Keep prepping.

          • GenEarly says:

            IMO, only millions of weapons in the hands of American citizens, hopefully with stockpiles of ammo, prevents these
            ProgreSSive Elitists from more overt actions.
            It is not a guarantee but a consideration for these Progs that any physical “attack” on us might be too risky.
            Or then again Psycho Pols like Obama might not even care, only wanting to destroy as much as they can, asap.
            CYA, be ready, stay steady.

        • Sharon says:

          Not only has the West not taken a hard stance against Islam, we are actively and aggressively defending it.

          A minor but representative example of this would be Holder’s recent attack on Fox News over their use of the term “radical Islam”. Keep in mind that this is about the least Islam defensive example, others are very evident in talking about terrorist violence while deliberately avoiding even the mention of Islam although it is most definitely and obviously Islamic in nature by all sorts of world leaders (our own included).

          (FWIW. Islam isn’t the only place this is being done, but that would be another subject for discussion.)

          • Hillbilly says:

            The moderate Muslims, you know, the ones not beheading or burning people…There not following the quran very well. The thing about IsIs is, They follow the quran just as it was written back then. Thats the part our pResident isn’t telling you.
            Islam wasn’t radical back then, by today’s standards it is.
            Know why IsIs wants to take Italy? The Coliseums. They want to feed Christians to lions. They are traditionalist’s

            • TPSnodgrass says:

              The “moderate” Muslims, are the ones holding the victims feet so that they CAN be beheaded.
              There are no moderate Muslims. Not a single one has spoken out against what ISIS is doing.

          • sixpack says:

            “Personally I don’t plan on defending American politicians in Washington from foreign or domestic assault or the central banking cartel and Wall Street investment bankers who ultimately will destroy the world in a sea of debt.”

            Ditto. This is a very refreshing article, and I can’t fault one single sentence of it.

          • Calgagus says:

            to Sharon
            Holder is in full defense mode. Half Obamas admin are muslim so what do you expect? All they do is lie -did they decide to be truthful now.
            Saw this at Rawles site this morning. Good read on violent muslim history. This muslim violence aint new, its just grown too large to ignore.

          Good news? Like he said, stronger dollar, at least for a while. 🙂 There’s still time to prepare for what? Nothing!

          Where’d they all go? What? When? Who? Why? Where?

          Oh, down deep in well appointed underground bunkers designed by the same ilk as ‘climate scientists’ 🙂 They have spent so much on them they may last for a whopping seven years underground.

          Seven years of realizing but for their own selfish ways of over-doing their own self-control and self-interests Life here on this planet could have worked. They were always wrong yet always powerful.

          Oh! But it can all be OK and really, it isn’t as bad as it can get and of course at a certain point of badness it can only get better.

          • John Q. Public says:

            The real war is the war of Satan against God, lies against truth, wickedness against decency.

            Currency (like usury and financial fraud) is just one of Satan’s weapons in the real war.

            • Pissed Off Granny says:

              Anyone remember Bonnie and Clyde? You know, that cute couple who robbed banks and was chased by the Government and killed.

              Poor idiots. They just didn’t have the foresight to just become a stockholder in the feral federal reserve. There, with just a stroke of a pen and now a keystroke on a computer, out of thin air they invent money. They print whatever the hell they want, buy whatever the hell they want, get paid interest on their phony money; all on the back of us morons, the American taxpayer.

              Bonnie and Clyde must be rolling over in their grave. They never dreamed a scheme such as this could be put over on the public. And rather than being hunted down like the criminals they are, when caught thieving they are given a slap on the wrist and a “Golden Parachute”.

              Ron Paul, when asked if a bill would pass the house and senate to audit the fed, thought it probably would. However, and a big however, he said the POTUS would never sign it.

              When asked if our representatives would pass a bill limiting the governments control of the internet, “probably, but the President wouldn’t sign it.”

              So you see, doesn’t matter what BS we are being peddled by the MSM about our representatives trying to rein in a runaway government; they are being given cover, “because POTUS wont sign it”. Convenient don’t you think?

              NOW, just a reminder:

              The Federal Reserve is a privately owned conglomerate of stockholders, with a few families as stockholders, and they aint muzzies.

              And the representatives in DC pushing gun control legislation are not muzzies. Some of the most vocal are dual citizens of Israel (look it up). Ask yourself why would these people want your guns, when daily we are told by the MSM that these terrorists will come to America. Why are these people trying to disarm us. Does it not seem reasonable that they should be telling Joe Blow American to “arm themselves to the teeth, to help repel what they say we are going to be facing”. There has to be something very sinister behind their ‘gun control’.

              Sad to say, we Americans, the muzzies, and the rest of civilization is being set up for Albert Pike’s third world war, and the feral fed is being used to finance it all. No wonder the whole world is on fire….

          I put a 🙂 in there as a joke. It’s hard to convey humor in text sometimes.

          I’ve got some good news for you… word is TPTB think they can keep this sinking ship afloat for several more years. We’ve got plenty of time to keep stacking and finding new ways to offset the massive overreach.

          • Tony Montana says:

            Billy Hill –

            TPTB may think they can can this sinking ship afloat for several years, but the common folk can not. People have gone from living from pay check to pay check to no paycheck or supplemental income of some sort. People are literally struggling to survive to purchase basic items to support themselves, this not including a place to live.

            In a way, I’m surprised there hasn’t been some kind of huge uprising by now against the Government of selling them down the river(off-shoring jobs). College graduates not able to use their Degrees for what it is intended for, because those jobs have been filled or have simply vanished.

            Iduno – maybe America is that dumbed down that they do not know the root cause of our economic problems and who is responsible for the downfall. I suppose the day will come when the Government will shut down the Electronic Benefit Program, then the clueless mass will rise, but they will still be confused of why.

          Npgh,
          You want some good news? Ok here it is in the form of advice: Go and read the Old Testament book of Habakauk. It is a short book, containing 3 chapters. Yes, things are as bad as they seem if not even worse. And things will get worse, BUT, God does have matters under full control, and not a damn thing is happening that He is not fully aware of. The wicked in this world (and that includes our own antichrist Obama) are being played by Him. The wicked WILL BE fully punished for what they have done. It is a done deal. So by all means do what you think is duty. Then take a listen again to the Hallelujah chorus from Messiah. Saw a bumper sticker once that read..

          Jesus is coming again…
          And is He pissed!

          Crude but accurate. Remember Jesus did warn us in advace that there would be wars and rumors of wars. But not to let that (and all the other bad news) make us afraid. The Messiah is coming soon. And from Gandalf: “So do I and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”

        • shamgar says:

          Well Npgh, read about Operation Northwoods and get back to me if it would have been a good idea to bomb the Muslims into oblivion. Read about Operation Gladio, and let me know what you think about the “terrorist” attack in France. For that matter go down to your local Redbox and rent Kill The Messenger and let’s talk about the government’s “War on Drugs,” and how maybe their are some parallels to the “War on Terror.” Put your big boy pants on and realize the good news is your reading this site and the State is NOT God.

      This isis thing has bothered me from the get go, because to me it seems like such an obvious fraud, or I’m just crazy. But I was thinking earlier about why do we need to be back over there. I don’t think it’s just Iraqi oil. Originally I thought it was just a plot to overthrow Syria, which I believe it certainly is. But could Iraq be strategically needed as stronghold for a possible WWIII. Maybe any smarter military minds out there could answer that question. Could we have created this isis boogeyman as a ruse to move our assets back into Iraq as a strategic operating base for WWIII would that be a feasible stronghold and defendable etc etc ??

      • Anonymous says:

        This isn’t just about Oil and other resources. This has everything to do with the Petro-Dollar, making sure everyone (nations) are on board of the Bretton Woods Financial System.

        Notice – The US Government over throws a Sovereign Nation Political System because they (other nations) rebel or do not want to sell their goods in US Dollars. To keep these Nations in check, we invade, install our kind of people who will follow orders … cycle repeats …

        Business as usual per Washington D.C. Policies.

        Three words sums up what’s going on BRETTON WOODS SYSTEM.
        It’s a rather simple, but unethical system of the Petro-Dollar.

        If other Nations choose to not sell or buy goods in US DOLLARS.
        The US Government will over throw your sovereign elected government and or invade, then we’ll install people who will abide by USA laws.

I would want you around right about then. “You can’t pack enough ammo” should be taken in context of time and place. Any ammo that assists freedom must be taken on a pound for pound basis when we find ourselves puny. Different tools for the same purpose are compatible tools to be used at different times. As a last resort it may buy time to reload. It has good heft. That is why I say use greed when the corruption is endemic.

    “Today the Internet Limits the Effectiveness of Government Propaganda Efforts”

    Hence the desire for the ability for the government to control the internet, THIS is why i believe they already have a kill switch, but are not sure exactly how to go about it so as to deflect blame, they know full well when they flip that switch many will switch gears and its game on,,,

  11. slingshot says:

    Plenty of arguments about which gun is the best and you can’t eat gold or silver. We are reactive and not proactive so many will not commit to doing the things needed to do until it is too late. Like another person said that there is little we can do about global happenings. Yet we have control over our local problems.
    In the time I have spent here, I still see people having problems that should have been taken care of a least a year ago. Really ammo shortage? Aside from money problems, procrastination is a major prepper problem. Maybe the family priorities clash.

    Two sides.

    If you post here you may be only interested in the “Why and Who’ part. A sort of blame game and what is going on in the world. We would rather fight over our worldly opinions.

    The other point is that you get very little about products and procedures that may save your life. Should we get a subject like that it is quickly changed to

      • Tony Montana says:

        It’s almost a guarantee that they will fold, especially when Russia pretty much gave them a grand opportunity to join them.

        common sense should be telling Greece to join Russia/BRICS outfit, and dump the EU. Economically Europe was doing rather well before the inception of the EU.

        It took 10-13 for the EU to show it’s socialistic failures. Should be a dire notion to other Nations, that Socialism does not work. As it is said, “sooner, rather than later, the Government will run out of other peoples monies.”

        • Pissed Off Granny says:

          Only one problem, Tony. Goldman Sachs has a strangle hold on Greece and they want paid!

          Their new PM says he wants “war reparations” from Germany; think that will fly?

          • Tony Montana says:

            POG –

            What you say is true, but then again it was Goldman Sachs and the like, which put Greece into this position to begin with. What we are seeing now across the Globe is Nations making alliances with one another and or removing themselves. Something has to give, and I would have to think that most of these Nations know that War will break out over this bogus “Monetary Policies” that have been set forth with the Central Banking Cartel.

            This phoney Ponzi Scheme of Economics across the Globe has to come to an end sometime,this charade can not keep going for eternity. If Greece would remove itself from the EU, the the house of cards will really start to show its true ugly colors.

            Greece joining Russia = strong alliance – Goldman Sachs gonna attack Russia for monies they think and feel they are owed? If so, then I say good luck to Gold ‘N My Sacks. Fuck ’em, they (Goldman Sachs) gets what coming to them — absolutely nothing.

  14. The Prophet says:

    Remember, when the talking heads on TV tell you that the “recovery” is in full swing, that 90% of the US economy is low pay, part time, service industry jobs. Those used to be entry level jobs. Now they’re the only jobs. The top three employers in the US are The Federal Government, WalMart, Kelly Temporary Services. We’re screwed. It won’t get any better under the present business model. This isn’t going to end well.

    The Toronto District School Board in Canada allows corruption.

    Roselands Junior Public School is a government-funded elementary school in proximity to marginalized ethnic communities in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    There’s no other way to say this. The Principal of Roselands Junior Public School, Mrs Jill Norman, with the help of her cronies at the Toronto District School Board, are trying to censor a number of Youtube videos which appear to be recordings between several TDSB staff members.

    The way to defeat totalitarianism in the Toronto District School Board is not to censor Youtube videos , but to tell the truth.

    The recognition of the fact that a journalist called Roselands Junior Public School on September 15, 2014 and had his phone calls disconnected at Principal’s knowledge shows how unprofessional some of the Toronto District School Board employees conduct themselves as public sector workers.

    I currently live in the People’s Socialist Thugocracy of Illinois, and pay a freaking $8,000 yr property taxes alone on a standard middle class home. That in addition to the cut DC takes and th 66% state income tax Dear Leader Quinn put into place until he was tossed in Nov.

    I plan on voting with my feet as soon as I a family situation resolves itself. Then, all the socialists in IL. can tax one another as they all work for the state, just like the USSR.

    And Rauner probably won’t have a lot of luck, given that the leftists in Springfield have a super majority. Interestingly, IL is a red state, except for corrupt Chicago.

  25. jpl_texas says:

    Currency war risks: So far, there has been equilibrium at the exchange tables; other G5s devalued their currencies proportional to the US or the US compensated a few privilege nations (i.e. gave them gold, or land, or something special). But, the US is running out of these valuables to maintain equilibrium. When the dollar has no buying power relative to other countries, we will be poor – our currency will be irrelevant – the powers that be will be irrelevant – we’ll see desparation attempts to maintain – but it won’t hold. We have to start over and live within our means.
