Image result for debt crisisTHE VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEBT
By Carolyn Baker, 2006

Never before have political leaders urged such large-scale indebtedness on American consumers to rally the economy. — Kevin Phillips, in American Theocracy: The Peril and Politics Of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money In The Twenty-First Century

In a recent conversation with a friend, a married mother of three, she anxiously confided that although she has never been scared about money in her entire adult life, she now, in her mid-forties, finds herself feeling terrified. “Sometimes I wonder,” she said tentatively, “if it’s our own fault or if it’s the world we now live in. I’ve never worked harder in my life, but I’ve never found myself and my family falling so far behind financially.”

[Many] are no doubt hearing similar anguish issuing from the mouths of friends and family, and in all likelihood, thinking similar thoughts, but they know that the frightening quagmire of debt in which (more…)

by Michael C. Ruppert, 2001

FBI/Justice Claims of Discontinued Use Leave Questions Unanswered
Britain and Germany in the Lurch?
Did bin Laden Use It To Break White House Codes And Threaten Air Force One?

An October 16 FOX News report by correspondent Carl Cameron indicating that convicted spy, former FBI Agent Robert Hanssen, had provided a highly secret computer software program called Promis to Russian organized crime figures – who in turn reportedly sold it to Osama bin Laden – may signal a potential intelligence disaster for the United States. Admissions by the FBI and Justice in the FOX story that they have discontinued use of the software are most certainly a legal disaster for a government that has been engaged in a 16-year battle with the software’s creator, William Hamilton, CEO of the Inslaw Corporation. Over those 16 years, in response to lawsuits filed by Hamilton charging that the government had stolen the software from Inslaw, the FBI, the CIA and the Department of Justice have denied, in court and under oath, ever using the software.

By Michael C. Ruppert, 2001

“U.S. journalist Mike Ruppert, a former Los Angeles police officer who now runs a Web site that seeks to expose CIA covert operations, said he met with RCMP investigator McDade on Aug. 3 in L.A. Ruppert said the RCMP officer was anxious to see documents he received three years ago from a shadowy Green Beret named Bill Tyre [sic] detailing the sale of rigged Promis software to Canada.” – The Toronto Star, September 4, 2000.

Only the legends of Excalibur, the sword of invincible power, and the Holy Grail, the chalice from which Christ took his wine at the Last Supper begin to approach the mysterious aura that have evolved in the world of secret intelligence around a computer software program named Promis. Created in the 1970s by former National Security Agency (NSA) programmer and engineer Bill Hamilton, now President of Washington, D.C.’s Inslaw Corporation, PROMIS (Prosecutor’s Management Information System) (more…)

Image result for chavez oilCRUDE TALK: US & VENEZUELA DANCE “THE JOROPO”

After several failed efforts to unseat Venezuela’s popular President Hugo Chavez, the fuel sector of corporate America is getting nervous. Venezuela is growing in prosperity, relying on its own mineral resources and technological patents to build new wealth. Chavez is exactly the kind of indigenous national leader whom American power can’t tolerate.

Arbenz, Mossadegh, Allende, and the other names on that too-familiar list were deposed for the crime of using their countries’ own resources to enrich the general population. More recently, Aristide moved a few inches in that direction and found himself miles from home. Even as Venezuela consolidates its position on the global oil chessboard, American law-and-order rhetoric is less and less credible.

The old script goes like this: U.S. corporations expropriate third world wealth; a democratic leader then nationalizes that wealth; the US then cries “property rights!” and invades said country in the name of international law. But Iraq is tearing that script to shreds at every point, and the Venezuela story is unfolding in what may prove to be a new narrative for the world — or a particularly bitter replay of the old one. –JAH (more…)

South Africa: FW De Klerk & Friends to Government – Stop Creating Bogeymen and Start Addressing Real Issues
By REBECCA DAVIS, Feb. 2017

It’s 27 years this week since FW de Klerk announced the unbanning of the ANC, but South Africa’s last apartheid president isn’t done talking yet. At the annual conference of his foundation in Cape Town, De Klerk did not mince his words when describing his fears for the white population of the country. Economist Moeletsi Mbeki urged the government to stop scapegoating and to abandon a posture of “victimhood”. Pepkor billionaire Christo Wiese, meanwhile, expressed a need for a business-friendly environment.

FW de Klerk has made no secret of his differences with South Africa’s current government in recent years, but on Thursday he delivered perhaps his harshest condemnation to date. In front of a well-heeled, majority white audience in Cape Town – including the likes of South Africa’s richest woman Wendy Appelbaum and (more…)
