Berlin’s Christmas Market Incident a Likely False Flag

another false flagClaims of responsibility lack credibility without verifiable proof. None so far exists. What’s known about Monday’s incident suggests false flag responsibility.

They’re identifiable the way fingerprints ID people. They’re strategically timed for an intended purpose. They’re designed to capture world headlines, conceal responsibility of the perpetrator, and point fingers at a convenient patsy or patsies.

On Wednesday, reports indicated Berlin police found identity documents (apparently a passport) belonging to a Tunisian national named Anis A. in the cabin of the truck used to kill and injure dozens on Monday. More…

Most people would find it difficult to believe that a terror perpetrator would leave his identification documents in the vehicle with which he perpetrated his crime. Add to this the fact that this “evidence” was not found until days later.

Within 4 Years, 4 Nonprofit Hospitals in NJ pocketed a Fortune of $1.7 Billion in Profits (tax-free)

non-profit hospital?In the early morning hours of May 24, 2011, I found myself at the emergency room of our local nonprofit hospital, Monmouth Medical Center, in Long Branch, New Jersey.  My husband drove me there after a fall I took in our back yard the night before.  Sitting uneasily in a wheelchair with my right leg swollen to about three times its normal size, I politely tried to answer the ER administrator’s 20 to 30 questions (which had nothing to do with my injury) – a mandate provided by the well compensated hospital executives – before I was allowed treatment for my injury.  Here’s a sample:

“Who is your employer?”
“Is this your current employer?”
“What is their address?”
“Do you have insurance?”
“Can you provide proof of insurance?”
“Do you know how much your deductible is?”
“How will you pay for your deductible?”
“We do take credit cards, you know”
“What card will you be using for this visit?”
“Do you have the card with you?”

In pain and frustrated beyond belief, I barked at the gatekeeper blocking me from the care I needed by insisting I was “good” for the bill.  Could I see a doctor now? For those foreign to our unique system, citizens of this country are busy learning American Health Care 101:  Profit before patient care.

Orwellian Economics

Orwellian Economics
By Michael Hudson and Sharmini Peries
Posted December 22, 2016.

1984 - a glimpse into our presentWhen Adam Smith and John Stuart Mill and even Marx wrote about free markets, they meant a market free from the idle rich. These were primarily the idle landlords who collected land rent on a hereditary basis without working. Also, financers and the bankers, who had long insisted that governments create monopolies to give them in lieu of debt repayment.

The whole idea of industrial capitalism was to get free from these unnecessary costs. An economy doesn’t need a landlord class to collect rent. It doesn’t need monopoly rent. But around the late 19th century the landlords fought back and they claimed there was no such thing as unearned income. They claimed that rentiers were productive, not parasitic.

The essence of classical economics was to say there’s a difference between value and price. Value is what it really costs to produce goods and services. This cost can be expressed in terms of what it costs to hire labor at a living wage. Everything that’s not a real cost is just a privilege, a legal right to put up a toll booth and extract rent.

Experts Reveal Techniques Used by the Media to Brainwash & Control Us

corporate media social manipulationWith so much vitriol flying in every direction these days about fake news, Russian propaganda, misinfo and disinfo, it’s crucial to acknowledge and understand the fact that there is a definitive science to distorting reality and manufacturing public consent. Many of the deliberate techniques of this form of social mind control are well-documented, having been revealed by industry insiders, experts, and content manufacturers.

One of the most important things happening in our world today is the corruption of grass-roots movements and how these movements are portrayed in the media to achieve very specific social and political results. We see this at work in major ways today as dozens of seemingly organic social movements are repeatedly used to create the ongoing narrative of social chaos, racism, division, and political protest.

Where Citizens Can Run for Office Without Big Money—and Win
by James Trimarco

no money in politics State representative Joyce McCreight never thought she would run for office. She’d always been an advocate for her neighbors in her coastal Maine town of Harpswell, but she did that as a social worker in public middle schools. She remembers a pregnant seventh-grader who once came to see her, and parents who worked multiple jobs but struggled to support their families.

She was convinced that the state government could do more to help those people, and she had ideas about how to do it. But she didn’t want to raise money from donors to pay for her campaign. It went against her sense of ethics. In most states, that would have been the end of the story. More…

NSA Watchdog Removed for Whistleblower Retaliation

NSA Watchdog Removed for Whistleblower Retaliation
by Adam Zagorin
Posted December 18, 2016

huge NSA facility in UtahUntil just a few months ago, George Ellard occupied a position of trust as top watchdog of the National Security Agency, America’s principal collector of signals intelligence. Ellard was not only NSA’s Inspector General, but an outspoken critic of Edward Snowden, the former contract employee who leaked hundreds of thousands of classified emails to publicly expose the agency’s domestic surveillance program.

Snowden claimed, among other things, that his concerns about NSA’s domestic eavesdropping were ignored by the agency, and that he feared retaliation. Ellard publicly argued in 2014 that Snowden could have safely reported the allegations of NSA’s domestic surveillance directly to him.

Snowden himself has explicitly contended that he feared retaliation and that he had no other option but to go public if he wished to expose NSA domestic eavesdropping. Among the cases of retaliation that Snowden has pointed to is that of former senior NSA employee Thomas Drake, who after reporting alleged wrongdoing through authorized channels, was arrested at dawn by the FBI, stripped of his security clearance, charged with crimes under the Espionage Act, all of which were later dropped, leaving him to find work in an Apple store.

Here’s Where the Next Bank Deposit “Bail-In” Will Strike…
by Nick Giambruno

banks can confiscate your moneyMost people think of the money they deposit into the bank as a personal asset they own. But that’s not true.

Once a deposit is made at the bank, it’s no longer your property. It’s the bank’s. What you own is a promise from the bank to repay. It’s an unsecured liability. That’s a very different thing from owning physical cash stuffed under your mattress. Money deposited into the bank technically makes you a creditor of the bank. You’re liable to get burned from a bail-in should the bank get into trouble.

People in Cyprus had to find this out the hard way in early 2013. People awoke on an otherwise normal Saturday morning to the shock that the money in their bank accounts had been taken by a bail-in to recapitalize the banks. More…
