Nuke Deal Inches Ahead as US-Iran Play Information War, by Pepe Escobar

VIENNA – So today is not D-Day. No landing in post-Wall of Mistrust territory. A nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 won’t be clinched today – for a number of very complex reasons, way beyond the vicious media information war; not least finding the absolute, exact wording in every line of 85 pages of text.

It still amounts, for all the bluster and the dramatic turnarounds, to a question of trust. Rather, breaching the 36-year-plus Wall of Mistrust between Washington and Tehran.

There are breakthroughs, of course. On the status of the Fordo research site, for instance, for the first time both sides reached an agreement. Compare it to the cosmic gap — exacerbated by the American wordplay — on the gradual lifting of sanctions.

Editor’s Pick: For Nazi Industrialists And Hitler’s Banker “All Was Forgiven”

hitler schacht

bankers now

In recent years, there has been much shock and stunned reactions among the general public as one after another banker avoided any prison time, despite perpetrating (and benefiting from the subsequent bailout) the biggest financial crisis know to mankind.

But is this shock warranted? The simple answer: no.

Consider the case of countless Nazi financiers and even Hitler’s personal banker, Hjalmar Schacht. What do they all have in common? Aside from (or perhaps due to) practically all having walked through the secretive corridors of the Bank of International Settlements, the one truly disturbing common theme is that virtually all avoided any significant prosecution for their participation in the Third Reich. In fact, as the following excerpt clearly reveals, the basis of Germany’s Fourth Reich, which in Adam LeBor’s words, “would be a financial, rather than a military imperium” was the work almost exclusively of Nazi financiers and bankers. And, of course, America’s backing and support of said Nazi bankers and industrialists.

Because when it comes to political winners and losers, the bankers will gladly support them all, and as such, no matter their prior actions, global financiers – who can and will bring down with them the entire financial system – have a perpetual immunity from the law, even if it means trillions in taxpayer bailouts, or hundreds of millions of casualties.

So the next time anyone is outraged that Lloyd or Jamie or Jon are not only walking free but have hundreds of millions in their bank accounts, advise them that if “all is forgiven” to Hitler’s personal banker, then there is clearly no hope that the judicial system will ever bring those criminals known elsewhere as “bankers” to justice.

The following is an excerpt from TOWER OF BASEL: The Shadowy History of the Secret Bank that Runs the World by Adam LeBor. Reprinted with permission from PublicAffairs.

CHAPTER TEN: ALL IS FORGIVEN

When detained in Dustbin, among a number of references to the financially great he pointed out that the President of the BIS, Mr. McKittrick of the United States, would be able to speak favourably of him.

Cornwall’s ‘Twin towers’ : a ‘French’ cash cow in Britain, by Paul Matthews

“The past 150 years have seen a significant increase in the toxicity of both domestic and industrial wastes. The waste stream used to consist mainly of natural products, such as paper, wood and fabrics – neutral wastes which seldom caused problems. But nowadays, many products include high levels of heavy metals and, in addition, synthetic plastics such as PVC, whose disposal has caused enormous health and environmental problems, plus a toxic legacy for future generations”. Dr Vyvyan Howard 2005 [1]

stack_sway St Dennis February 2015

Mauled by a voracious «zombie» economy, we are playing with fire in more ways than one. As if haunted by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, our era is now a byword for physical and moral decay. A logic of asymmetric warfare and a headlong flight from reality pervades many levels of Western civilization, sucked dry by unprecedented political and financial corruption. The following story is inspired by the principle that in the microcosm, one beholds features of the macrocosm. The issue this time : the future of a comely parish in Cornwall by the name of St Dennis (Tredhinas in Cornish) and with a population of just under 3,000 souls.

Those Who Collaborate with the West, by André Vltchek

It is much easier to rule over those people who have lost all their dignity.

There is no reason to fear resistance where cynical consumerism, lack of knowledge, and constant anxiety are shaping the behavioral patterns of a nation; of most of its citizens.

The West made an art form out of controlling the world. Its once rough and simple ‘divide and rule’ tactics have reached, with time, great virtuosity. What Richter, Rostropovich or Argerich did for the art of Western classical music, people like Brzezinski, Kissinger and Negroponte matched with their brilliance in the art of destruction and terror.

In today’s world, everything is upside down. Brothers fear brothers, guerilla fighters are made to spy on each other, and heroes who are fighting for the survival of the planet are labeled by Western regime as demagogues, strongmen or even terrorists.

The Fascist News Network (BBC) and reality

The BBC has been supporting the Nazi cause since the beginning of the Ukrainian genocide
The BBC has been supporting the Nazi cause since the beginning of the Ukrainian genocide

Notice the humble “President in deep thought” moment captured and plastered on the BBC website.  This despite the fact that Poroshenko is a certified Nazi who is ordering genocide in East Ukraine. The British state propaganda channel has been playing a notorious role as the Imperial Mouthpiece for many decades.

What the BBC will not show you (courtesy of FortRuss and Kazzura):

The disingenuous reporting right from John Simpson’s ludicrous insinuations at the Putin press conference to the treatment of the Greek Finance Minister to the usual support for Israeli murder in Palestine has now reached sickening depths.

The BBC is specially painful to watch as it distorts and lies with finesse that is not found on the run of the mill Fox News type cartoon shows. The channel manipulates the public’s trust in it by serving the agenda of the Elite.

With Britain now militarily helping the Nazi Junta in Ukraine and the BBC serving as the ever faithful mouthpiece, there is little hope for reality to set in.

Conversation: The Benevolence of Western leaders

This Christmas the western leaders at the G20 gave us something special, its called:

Adequacy of Loss-Absorbing Capacity of Global Systemically Important Banks in resolution

Translation:

When the multi-trillion dollar derivatives markets collapse at the next economic crisis, the bank will use your money and assets to help cover the losses.

They’ll try to shut you down’: Meeting Assange & the non-stop ‘War on RT’, by Margarita Simonyan

RTPosterUK

Last week, while in London, I went to see Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy. We talked off the record of course, so I won’t divulge too much, but will post only what Julian insisted on making public. Before it’s too late.

Assange shared an enlightening story about a Kurdish TV station that had been shut down in Denmark. The story, like so many others – from diplomatic cables with undiplomatic comments to hundreds of uninvestigated war crimes in Iraq – came to his attention through a leaked cryptogram.

Once upon a time there was a Kurdish TV network in Denmark. It would just as happily ‘be’ anywhere else, but more fitting markets were off limits to the channel. The station, Roj TV, was aimed at Turkish Kurds, and that made the Turkish authorities very angry.

Turkish officials pressed their NATO ally Denmark to shut down the TV channel under some plausible pretext. But Denmark was reluctant, saying that multiple inspections didn’t find any propaganda of terrorism and there were no grounds to close it down. Such things weren’t done there; Denmark, after all, is a democracy.
