Yellow vest protesters plan massive run on French banks

Yellow vest protesters plan massive run on French banks

yellow vests are now targeting the system's achilles heelFurious yellow vests are preparing to withdraw all their euros in a massive run on French banks, as the violent protests spill over to Britain.

If a bank run succeeds, the yellow vests could cause a complete failure of France’s banking system. Unlike Australia, France operates on a Fractional Reserve System meaning their banking system holds a fraction of money that’s deposited by customers. The rest is used to make loans, creating new money.

If reports are true in saying 70 per cent of the population plans to withdraw all their euros, it means more than 46 million people will be directly revolting against the system. This could lead to a systemic banking crisis in the country where almost all the banking capital is wiped out. More…

The Facts:
In a fractional reserve system, banks do not have enough cash to payout for all their deposits. A bank run is a powerful, yet nonviolent tactic that can be used by citizens to show their displeasure.

Reflect On:
If a bank run was successful in a major western nation, what would be the consequence of such a move? You can probably be sure there would be increased calls by the elites for a “cashless society”, where the banks and the government would hold all the power, and the people would be at their mercy.

Neofeudalism Isn’t a Flaw of the System–It’s the System Working Perfectly

Neofeudalism Isn’t a Flaw of the System–It’s the System Working Perfectly
by Charles Hugh Smith

our neo feudalism is by designThe basic idea here is the socio-economic-political system is structured such that the only possible output is neofeudalism. In other words, neofeudalism isn’t a flaw in the system that can be changed with policy tweaks or electing a new president or PM– it’s the result of the system working as designed.

Neofeudalism is a peculiarly invisible hierarchical structure of power: The New Nobility (or aristocracy if you prefer) wields vast concentrations of political, social and financial power, and does so without the formalized aristocrat-serf relationships and obligations of classic neofeudalism.

We appear to be free but we’re powerless to change the power asymmetry between the New Nobility and the commoners. More…

Water Watchdogs Keep Up Fight Against Oregon LNG Terminal

Water Watchdogs Keep Up Fight Against Oregon LNG Terminal

opposition to pipelines is growing after Standing RockPublic comment periods are usually dull affairs. But this summer, dozens of people rallied in front of the Medford, Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) building to ceremoniously hand over boxes of comments urging the agency to deny an important certification to the Jordan Cove Energy Project.

By the end of the Oregon DEQ comment period in late August, project opponents had flooded the agency with over 43,000 comments, citing threats to hundreds of rivers, streams, and wetlands and echoing the concerns of citizens all over the country who are opposing new fossil fuel.

Projects such as these have seen fierce local resistance. But it was the unyielding stance of the Standing Rock Water Protectors in North Dakota, who protested the Dakota Access pipeline on the grounds that it could contaminate their drinking supply, that brought these battles into national focus two years ago.

CIA Covert Operative William Barr Nominated by Trump for Attorney General. His Role in the Iran Contra Affair
By Larry Chin
Posted January 8, 2019

William Barr was Fawning mainstream media coverage, and streams of puff pieces laud Barr as a “respected” establishment “legal scholar”, as do Donald Trump’s Twitter posts about Barr.

The fact is, there is nothing to “respect” and everything to condemn about Barr’s work as a key inner circle operative throughout George Herbert Walker Bush’s rise to power, from CIA Director to Vice President to President. These aspects of Barr’s resume remain whitewashed by mainstream coverage. They have been amply documented by whistleblowers and those who worked directly with Barr.

The issue at hand is not Barr’s “legal mind”, but the ruthless mind that he wielded with frightening authority and expertise as George H. W. Bush’s treasonous hatchet man in the Justice Department. William Barr distorted and corrupted the law, as grossly as anyone in modern history. More…

Mainstream Media Assaults on Freedom of Speech. “The Truth” is No Longer “Important”

Mainstream Media Assaults on Freedom of Speech. “The Truth” is No Longer “Important”
By Shane Quinn
Posted January 7, 2019

for main stream media, Such was the barrage of propaganda directed at the American public that 69% believed Saddam Hussein was “personally involved” in the September 11 attacks. That is a significant achievement in manipulation. The poll results must have been news to the Iraqi dictator himself, a forgotten one-time American ally.

Why Hussein would take it upon himself to orchestrate a surprise attack on the United States, of all nations, is anyone’s guess. Perhaps if he had a death wish but as later events proved he was not the suicidal type.

The Times was not alone in its position of selling the Iraq war to the American people, as television networks from Fox News to CBS and CNN were overwhelmingly pro-war. Fox News, owned by Rupert Murdoch – who strongly backed the illegal conflict – placed a permanent US flag in the corner of the screen. Fox employees were compelled to describe the invasion as “Operation Iraqi Freedom”, with hundreds of thousands of Iraqis later being killed. More…

none so blind, as those who will not seeA year ago yesterday, it became fully clear what was behind the feverish attempt by our intelligence agencies and their mainstream media accomplices to emasculate President Donald Trump with the Russia-gate trope.

It turned out that the objective was not only to delegitimize Trump and make it impossible for him to move toward a more decent relationship with Russia.

No, it was deeper than that. It turns out a huge part of the motivation behind Russia-gate was to hide how the Department of Justice, FBI, and CIA (affectionately known as the Deep State) — with their co-opted “assets” in the media — interfered in the 2016 election in a gross attempt to make sure Trump did not win.

If Cannabis Can Kill “Incurable” Brain Cancer, Why Is It Criminalized?

If Cannabis Can Kill “Incurable” Brain Cancer, Why Is It Criminalized?
By Sayer Ji
Posted January 6, 2019

why is this medicine illegal?A recent article published in the Journal Neuroimmune Pharmacology titled, “The Antitumor Activity of Plant-Derived Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids,” reviewed the therapeutic potential of a non-psychoactive class of phytochemicals found in cannabis known as cannabinoids. Unlike THC, cannabinoids do not activate the cannabinoid 1 and cannabinoid 2 receptors in the central nervous system in any significant way, making their activity less controversial as they do not produce changes in perception and sensation associated with “recreational” and/or “psychedelic” drugs.

There are actually over 60 cannabinoids in cannabis, but the second most abundant one, cannabidiol (CBD), has been found to inhibit and/or kill a wide range of cancers in the animal model, including gliobastoma (a difficult-to-treat type of brain cancer), breast, lung, prostate, and colon cancer. There have been a wide range of mechanisms identified behind these observed anti-tumor activities, including anti-angiogenic (preventing new blood vessel formation), anti-metastatic, anti-cell viability, but the one we wish to focus on in this report is its ability to to inhibit the stem-like potential of cancer cells.
