“In his keynote speech at this week’s #FXDebates event in London, Lars Seier Christensen, the co-founder and co-chief executive of Saxo Bank, said the euro crisis had turned into a fatal disaster with huge consequences for the members involved.”
Saxo Bank CEO On The ‘Eurozone Minefield’: “This Crisis Will Not Pass”
Niall Ferguson recently remarked, “[Europe] is a politicial experiment gone wrong. The experiment was to see if Europeans could be forced into [...]

Nigel Farage, well known for his anti-centralized government diatribes in which he has repeatedly targeted European leadership and finance ministers for the destruction of the Eurozone economy, warns yet again that the consequences for the actions of elite politicians and bankers will soon pour into the streets.
You won’t see straight forward candidness like this from mainstream politicians, because most are terrified of speaking the truth and accepting blame.
They know it’s coming [...]
urope must become ‘federation of states’, Barroso says
The president of the European Commission called for the EU to be turned into a “federation of nation states” in a sweeping demand for countries to surrender more sovereignty and move towards full integration.
In a speech to the European Parliament, the head of the bloc’s executive, President Jose Manuel Barroso, said he was not calling for a European “superstate”, but said the EU [...]
The Real Agenda
Flashback: Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Union: “Homogenous Nation States are Dead”.
The collapse of the Euro and the European Union is not a result of the financial crisis created by the bankers. In fact, the crisis was created as a way to justify the banker acquisition of independent nation states in Europe, America, Africa and Asia, among others.
After reading what van Rompuy’s intention is in multiple occasions – [...]
Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has said he is “deeply worried” that Britain will leave the European Union via a referendum.
Mr Blair also told a German newspaper that the UK’s exit from the EU could be sparked by too much power being transferred to Brussels.
David Cameron said in July that it was a “perfectly honourable position” to call for a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU – something polls show a [...]

The New York Times in their article, “C.I.A. Said to Aid in Steering Arms to Syrian Opposition,” confirms what many have already long known – that the West, led by the US and its Gulf State proxies, have been arming terrorists, particularly the Muslim Brotherhood, while berating the Syrian government for “violating” a UN mandated ceasefire and for “failing to protect” its population.
The Muslim Brotherhood has been [...]

The reality is that Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Greece, and France (in no particular order) are all in debt traps from which there is no escape. A debt trap is sprung when bankruptcy becomes the only outcome. With corporations, this usually becomes readily apparent and directors are forced by law to stop trading, but countries conceal this reality by printing money. Otherwise there is no difference [...]
Because they have been unable to find agreement, European leaders have asked top Eurocrats—European Commission President José Manuel Barroso, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy, Eurogroup head Jean-Claude Juncker and European Central Bank head Mario Draghi—to come up with a plan. They hope to share some initial proposals at the European summit scheduled for the end of this month. A concrete plan is to be ready by autumn. …
The four are intent [...]

Well, my hat is off to the global central planners for averting the next stage of the unfolding financial crisis for as long as they have. I guess there’s some solace in having had a nice break between the events of 2008/09 and today, which afforded us all the opportunity to attend to our various preparations and enjoy our lives.
Alas, all good things come to an end, and a [...]
Another year, another EU audit saga.
Once again the EU accounts came under the scrutiny of the European Court of Auditors (ECA) and came up short.
For the sixteenth year in a row the EU has been unable to balance its books to the full satisfaction of its own auditors.
This will come as little surprise to anyone. But it does not sit well at a time when all the EU nation states [...]

Washington, May 12 (ANI): A former top CIA covert officer has said there are currently more foreign spies on American soil than there were even at the peak of the Cold war.
“If you look at the threat that is imposed upon our nation every day, some of the major nation states-China in particular — [have] very sophisticated intelligence operations, very aggressive operations against the U.S.,” said Hank Crumpton, [...]
A former top CIA covert officer who ran one of the spy agency’s secret domestic networks says there are now more foreign spies on U.S. soil than at the peak of the Cold War. The former officer, Hank Crumpton, who also served as deputy director of the CIA’s Counter-Terrorism Center and led the U.S. response to 9/11, speaks candidly to Lara Logan about his life as a spy on 60Minutes, [...]
The term obviously has different meanings to different people (as noted here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_World_Order_(disambiguation) but I’m amazed, with the tremendous amount of research that you’ve done on a huge range of issues, that your curiosity was never once sparked such that you investigated the term further. What about the term don’t you like and what about the people using the term don’t you like?
Since, from my perspective, there is significance congruence between what [...]

You’ve been sold a bill of goods for the last four to six decades. You’ve been told that nation-states, democracy and socialism is good. You’ve been told our monetary system prevents instability. And, while the government and central banks put your unborn children or grandchildren into debt for life they’ve been telling you that there will be a socialist safety net to protect you and that the “American [...]
The entire economics world is abuzz about the intriguing smackdown between Paul Krugman and Ron Paul on Bloomberg.
The Guardian summarises:
Ron Paul said it’s pretentious for anyone to think they know what inflation should be and what the ideal level for the money supply is.
Paul Krugman replied that it’s not pretentious, it’s necessary. He accused Paul of living in a fantasy world, of wanting to turn back the clock 150 [...]

Tiger decline is ‘sign of world’s failure’ … Governments need to crack down on illegal tiger trading if the big cats are to be saved, the UN has warned. The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) meeting in Doha, Qatar heard that tiger numbers are continuing to fall. Organised crime rings are playing an increasing part in illegal trading of tiger parts, CITES says, as they are [...]

The government will decide in about two months whether to expand a Pentagon pilot program that uses classified National Security Agency data to protect the computer networks of 17 defense contractors, the Pentagon’s chief cyber official said.
The pilot program has largely been successful since its start about a year ago, although it has faced some legal, technical and policy challenges, said Eric Rosenbach, a former Army intelligence officer [...]
A leading internet security expert has warned that a cyber terrorist attack with “catastrophic consequences” looked increasingly likely in a world already in a state of near cyber war.
Eugene Kaspersky is not given to easy hyperbole. But the Russian maths genius who founded an internet security empire with a global reach, clutched at his thick mop of hair with both hands.
“I don’t want to speak about it. I don’t even [...]
Will Europe Rescue China? … All eyes will be on China at this week’s G-20 meeting in Cannes. The expectation—or at least the hope—is that Beijing will contribute to Europe’s bailout fund, the European Financial Stability Facility. The Greece-rescue plan announced on Thursday in Brussels calls for an increase in the size of the EFSF from 440 billion to a trillion euros. At the press conference announcing the deal, French [...]
From the ECB:
Tomorrow and the day after tomorrow: a vision for Europe
Speech by Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the ECB, at the Humboldt University, Berlin, 24 October 2011
It is a great pleasure to be invited to speak here at the Humboldt University this evening. One can only be honoured to be in the university of Hegel, Heinrich Heine and the Nobel prize-winning physicists Albert Einstein and Max Planck – not to mention [...]
So enthused about promoting the far-left protests, ABC anchor Diane Sawyer on Monday night’s World News championed “the Occupy Wall Street movement” by ludicrously claiming that “as of tonight, it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries — every continent but Antarctica.”
Protests against the wealthy in “thousands of countries,” including Cuba, China and every country in Africa? Per the U.S. State Department, however, [...]

When looking at what is going on at this point, this probably sounds like a bizarre question. It seems more opportune to wonder how the Euro managed to survive this long.
Clearly the imbalances between Germany and its satellites (the Netherlands, Denmark, Austria) and the rest of Europe are not sustainable. The South imports tens of billions per year more than it [...]

In this 50 minute special Infowars Nightly News report webcast last night at 7 PM CST on PrisonPlanet.tv, Alex Jones interviews financial expert Max Keiser from Paris, France, and talks with Paul Joseph Watson from the UK.
Keiser and Jones break down the engineered global economic depression designed to take nation states to their knees in preparation for an authoritarian world government lorded [...]
Actually, a sack of rice is far more useful than a bar of gold because it is practical and usable. An ounce of gold is worth US$1500 which is a bit much for the weekly shopping. What would you accept for change?
I do realise that the US$ is only worth perhaps 5% of it’s 1913 value but I am not discussing the dollar’s value over [...]
The riots in North Africa and the Middle East are occurring for one main reason.Â People are hungry.Â Yes they want their leaders gone, and yes they want a better form of government, but the tipping point is the aching coming from their bellies.Â Here in America we have the same thing, yet the dollar keeps the food stamps coming in.Â The problem is, the [...]
The EUâ€™s Franco-German “Directoire” and the European Central Bank have between them ruled out all plausible solutions to the eurozoneâ€™s debt crisis.
There will be no Eurobond, no increases in the EUâ€™s â‚¬440bn (Â£368bn) rescue fund, and no mass purchases of Spanish and Italian bonds by the ECB. Nothing. The system is politically and constitutionally paralysed. Spain and Portugal will be [...]
