In Europe a directive from the European Commission (say: the European 'governors') guarantees up to 100.000 €uro on saving-accounts at Banks, should they go belly-up. Interesting, not? But read carefully: ... up to... It might be zero €uro as well. No wonder, than about 90% of European banks can be considered insolvent. They wouldn't be able to pay you back your money when everybody at the same time would ask for it, when a 'bank run' occurred. Where should the money come from? Tax hikes perhaps? From non-functioning EU country's "Central Banks" then, printing numbers on worthless paper that is sold to us as 'money'? Gradually we creep into the direction of a true financial calamity. Watch the film and see the derivatives-gambling, well-protected by our money. The volume of these derivative-bets is several times world's GDP! Who ever could pay that out, because it is 'guaranteed'? Be warned and ... (see title of the film). To go practical: I hold about 50 dollar/€uro at my bank-account to cover its 'costs' and all the rest moves to my pocket. I pay cash (asking for discounts, whether that be 3% or 10%!). Because you nowhere can get interests (above inflation levels) on your money, why keeping and 'saving' it at some bank? Buy a house, or perhaps some gold and silver, instead of ruining your life when banks go bust with your money! Public banks are still not known to me for as far as Europe is concerned...
The Corbet Report's James Corbett did it again. A high-speed history of 'false flag' operations that shaped the world. Whether James missed some of them, for instance the several Gladio- and Gladio-like state-terrorism attacks littering Europe years ago, is another story leaving many open questions. With the USA remembering the 12th anniversary of the New York attacks, aka "nine-11", it seems right to remind us of inconsistencies with reality that are widely believed by the -due to disinterest for the underlying issues- ignorant public. Even the recent assumed 'poison gas attack' in Syria remains in the realm of gullibility that way: for what bold words are worth. The main and real issue is, that culprits get away with it! Governments in deep existential crises tend to use covert and deceptive operations (often as plain lies in public) to bend "the noses" of the public into the desired direction. Even though this seems a superficial claim. It only can be justified by opening the Pandora's Box of false flags in politics even wider to show more illogical, erratic and unexpected political claims, proposals and following decisions. Books were written about that. It reminds us to remain vigilant ourselves and ask the very important, still simple question: "Why are you telling this?" To me this seems the decisive question I never heard ask at some press conference...
The Moscow-based Mercator Group produces astonishing effective and educational information graphics as films for business and media.
This one about light pollution and its (hidden!) dangers demonstrates their professional, compact way of 'getting the message across'. Indeed, take note that throwing bright lights on at night for a visit to the bathroom may be dangerous for your health! What about some romantic candle-light?
This prank reportedly comes from The Netherlands and went viral overnight. Creative people in Amsterdam trying to pull the wellknown NSA a leg, but seeing themselves confronted with a professional, kind, but persistent telephone operator. Telling that the caller came from Iran added 'drama' to the content... A great video indeed. And: be frank, a good ad for the NSA! Flowers for the operator!
Enjoy your upcoming weekend,
True! I like a good defense system. Many countries would want one against assaults from foreign hordes. The option that Sukhoi offers with its SU27 family for air defense (and attack) has advantages over Western satellite guided, high tech, fly-by-wire solutions prone to hacking (!) and electro-magnetic influences from solar and other high power radiation beams inclusive lasers. Let us wait and see how this works out, when the USA c.s. goes to war again and meets Chinese and Russian opponents. One day Western allied bigotry and megalomania will meet their fate, which would complete the end of an era that lasted just 400 years. Didn't Nostradamus predict all of this? Study IX Centurion 93-96!
James Corbett and his The Corbett Report analysis of the Syria crisis is a Must See. It demonstrates how geopolitics are shaped and executed. It also shows how misleading (or 'worthless') main stream media have become, when you read or see about Syria. The conflict about Syria could plunge the planet in a global war of catastrophic proportions. In particular now AP/BBC reporter Dale Gavlak revealed that he discovered Saudi-backed mercenaries in Syria, who -by accident (?)- launched chemical weapons!
