The Cyprus Bailout Exposes a World of Thieves, Cheats, and Liars / Politics / Banksters

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: Let's talk about the Cyprus bailout, the International Monetary Fund, and the European Central Bank.

Let's call what the IMF and ECB are doing what it really is. After all, it is the ultimate institutional goal. It's thieving.

So let's start with the thieves...

The Great Cyprus Bank Robbery / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: BATR

When does banksters’ extortion become outright theft? The latest example and escalation by the placing a levy fee on bank deposits in the tax haven of Cyprus illustrates the bold step of seizing private liquid saving accounts, under the guise of a government tax. The prospects of an all out run on the banking system have jumped tenfold. Essentially, a government is using the power of the state, to steal funds not because of the bankruptcy of a banking institution, but because of a failure of the entire EU financial system. The forbidding precedent of a seizure of individual wealth, by a stroke of a pen, runs contrary to the shrinking confidence in fiduciary trust of cash placed in banking accounts.

Iraq, America's Arab Slaughterhouse / Politics / Iraq War

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Ten years ago today the Bush regime invaded Iraq. It is known that the justification for the invasion was a packet of lies orchestrated by the neoconservative Bush regime in order to deceive the United Nations and the American people.

The US Secretary of State at that time, General Colin Powell, has expressed his regrets that he was used by the Bush regime to deceive the United Nations with fake intelligence that the Bush and Blair regimes knew to be fake. But the despicable presstitute media has not apologized to the American people for serving the corrupt Bush regime as its Ministry of Propaganda and Lies.

German Economic War Reparations - Cyprus Is The Start / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Andrew_McKillop

IT HAPPENED BEFORE
It was also not good for Germany - in the end. For other "players" it started bad, and got worse. Major spinoff from war reparations won by a triumphant Germany in 1871 included a worldwide stock market crash starting in Europe, and a Long Recession which was especially strong in Europe - but among today's differences we already have a "relatively weak and manageable" European recession. Already set and ready to spin entirely out of control.

Cyprus Record Bank Heist Spells End Game For Your Wealth / Politics / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Jeff_Berwick

The emergency bank holiday in Cyprus has been extended through Tuesday and Wednesday in what as far as the team at Dollar Vigilante has researched, will be the longest emergency bank holiday in Europe or North America since the Second World War.

Marking the first time during the five-year-old global credit crunch, depositors may be forced to pay upfront for their nation's bailout. European finance ministers are reaching into Cypriot savings accounts to backstop a 13 billion euro bailout for Cyprus. The decision was made public early Saturday morning, shortly after which Cyprus banks closed to slow down withdrawals.

Oz: The Great and Powerful” Perfect Analogy of the Fed / Politics / US Federal Reserve Bank

Mitchell Clark writes: “Oz: The Great and Powerful” is The Walt Disney Company’s (NYSE/DIS) latest flick about a character named Oscar Diggs who is a con artist. He finds himself in the Land of Oz, where he is a magician that’s ethically challenged. It’s quite the analogy to what’s happening today in the U.S. economy.

The now celebrated "Cyprus haircut" of bank depositors' savings and private wealth, from the account of the smallest "man in the street" to those of the Russian oligarchs who have transformed Cyrus's banking system into a vast money-laundering machine, was described by Germany's Angela Merkel as follows:

Ron Paul - U.S. Congressional Budget Debate Is Just A Sideshow / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Federal spending once again dominated the debate in Washington last week, as House Republicans and Senate Democrats began work on their ten-year budget plans. Contrary to claims, neither party's budget reduces spending. While the Republican plan increases spending a little less than the Democrat plan, it would still spend $5 trillion in 2023, an almost two trillion dollar increase over this year's budget.

The Cyprus Bailout Deal is Already Under Threat (Of Course) / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

One day after it was agreed on and announced by the Eurogroup and Cyprus president Nicos Anastasiades, the deal that would turn the Eurozone into a Pandora's box like no other EU measure to date has done looks like it may never reach the finish line. The Cypriot parliament, in which freshly elected Anastasiades holds just 20 of 56 seats, has pushed a vote on the deal forward until Monday, a clear sign that the president's political adversaries will not easily be locked into an agreement that is obviously and for good reason hugely unpopular.

Sequester Holding Americans Hostage / Politics / US Politics

By: Walter_Brasch

Judges who wish to assure that a jury has no outside influence will sequester them.
Legally, a sequestered jury is seized by authority and isolated from all outside influences.

The jurors are escorted into and out of the courtroom. They aren’t allowed to read newspapers, listen to radio news, or watch TV news, ’lest they could be influenced by the media. They are escorted to and from meals, and isolated from other customers. They can’t discuss the case with family or friends. They can’t even go home at the end of the day; they’re housed in hotel rooms.

Pope Bashing Media Blitz "Proves All Is Well" / Politics / Religion

By: Andrew_McKillop

EVERY DAY THE DOW HITS RECORD HIGHS
Of course soaring equity indices are nothing to do with the real economy - only the naive would (or could) imagine the opposite. However, one direct spinoff is Pope bashing. The new Pope's primal error was to almost say outright that mass poverty can be linked with the greedy rich and their casino economy. Rapidly, Pope bashing has become "de rigeur" in official government friendly media.

Darwin And The Crisis Of Christianity / Politics / Religion

By: Andrew_McKillop

THE PRIMAL SOUP
In the primal soup of our ex-democracies in meltdown, as we thrill to one petty demagogue after the other, the 'recourse to religion' is surely making a comeback.  This will also bring back the 160-year-old crisis of Christian, Juadaic and Islamic doctrine set by the theory of evolution. Darwinist defenders of "large scale abiogenesis-based evolution" present things as follows. Four and a half billion years ago our young planet's naked land masses were almost completely engulfed by shallow primordial seas, their waters formed by inorganic atmospheric and volcanic-tectonic chemical processes.  Powerful winds gathered random molecules from the atmosphere and some were deposited in the seas. Tides and currents thrust the molecules together.  Then, somewhere in this ancient shallow ocean or at its edges the miracle of life began. The first organized form of primitive life was a tiny protozoan one-celled animal. Billions of protozoa soon populated the ancient seas and were completely self-sufficient in their sea-water world, feeding on bacteria and other organisms, which had also miraculously been formed. Much later on, life in the seas spread to the land and to the air.

The Great Society is Dead / Politics / US Politics

By: Michael_T_Bucci

The complicity by both US political parties in a collaborative zeal to gut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid is now "on the table" for all to view after each group unveiled their budget plans during the week of March 11. As a senior citizen, once an executive making three figures per hour and now living below the poverty line, constricted by multiple sclerosis in a US state run by a Tea Party Express Governor, Mr. "X" says he feels like someone living on death row.

Greek's Radical Left: The Dangers of the Disaffected and the Unemployed / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: STRATFOR

In last week's Geopolitical Weekly, George Friedman discussed how the global financial crisis has caused a global unemployment crisis and how Europe has become the epicenter of that crisis. He also noted that rampant unemployment will give way to a political crisis as austerity measures galvanize radical political parties opposed to the status quo.

Venezuela: On the Death of Chávez and the Ailing Bolivar / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Steve_H_Hanke

Although Hugo Chávez, the socialist presidente of Venezuela, has finally met his maker, the grim reaper is still lingering in Caracas. As it turns out, Chávez was not the only important Venezuelan whose health began to fail in recent weeks. The country's currency, the Venezuelan bolivar fuerte (VEF) may soon need to be put on life support. Indeed, in the past month the bolivar has lost 21.72 percent of its value against the greenback on the black market (read: free market).
