Forget Deflategate. Here’s the Real NFL Scandal

| 29 Jan 2015 | Football fans are unhappy with the cheating scandal that has roiled the Super Bowl. What should worry them more is this: NFL president Roger Goodell made $44 million last year, as head of a not-for-profit. That’s right — even though the NFL teams raked in about $9.5 billion in revenues last year, and the CEO of their industry association takes home one of the highest paychecks in the land, the sports league pays no taxes. Not only is the NFL tax-exempt, so is an organization called the NFL Management Council that undertakes “labor negotiations on behalf of NFL Member Clubs.”

India looks to use US formula to convince France and Australia –  Indian Express by Shubhajit Roy | New Delhi | January 27, 2015 A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Barack Obama announced a resolution to the nuclear liability issue and administrative arrangements, India  plans to engage with France and Australia in the next few weeks to clear the remaining hurdles before nuclear commerce.

India will share the Indo-US formula on resolving the nuclear liability issue with France to resolve the issue of liability with the latter as well, sources said — this has come in the way of nuclear commerce with Areva, the French nuclear supplier.

With Australia, the sources said, India will share the template of its administrative arrangements with Canada — and now the US — so that uranium from Australia can be supplied without further delay. India signed an uranium supply agreement with Australia last September, when Prime Minister Tony Abbott visited the country.

……….The US is said to be no longer insisting on tracking these supplies, required under its rules to ensure it is not being used for military purposes. -……http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/india-looks-to-use-us-formula-to-convince-france-and-australia/

“[The Pentagon] is about to come and scrub our computers of the data,” Alex Bronstein-Moffl, SIGAR’s director of public affairs, told Fusion.

According to a report by SIGAR, the institution can no longer track how billions of American taxpayer dollars are being spent in Afghanistan.’

FBI foils its own terror attack plans, once again: US nuclear scientist secretly taped by FBI claiming he could bomb New York

| 29 Jan 2015 | A disgruntled, former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist promised to build 40 nuclear weapons for Venezuela and design a bomb targeted for New York City in exchange for “money and power,” according to secret FBI recordings released Wednesday. In the recordings, Pedro Leonardo Mascheroni tells an agent posing as a Venezuelan official that the bombs would prevent the United States from invading the oil-rich nation and brags to his wife that the passing of secrets would make him wealthy. The recordings were played Wednesday in US District Court in Albuquerque before a federal judge sentenced Mascheroni, 79, to five years in prison followed by three years of supervised release as part of a plea agreement.

A brawl broke out during a meeting to discuss the conduct of police in the city where riots erupted after a black teenager was shot dead by a white officer.

The audience grew restless as police officers spoke out against a proposed civilian oversight board that would examine the force’s actions in future at St Louis City Hall.

Missouri state Republican Jeff Roorda, who is also business manager of the city’s police union, reportedly became involved in a slanging match with meeting chairman Terry Kennedy.

Roorda, who was said to have been wearing a wristband in support of Darren Wilson, the ex-police officer who shot Michael Brown, then allegedly pushed a black woman as a melee erupted.

Pentagon documents: Obama to request big defense budget hike

| 27 Jan 2015 | President Barack Obama will ask Congress for a hefty, almost 8 percent boost for the Pentagon, including $5.3 billion to equip and train Iraqi soldiers and moderate Syrian ‘rebels’ to fight create more Islamic State militants in the Middle East. Obama will ask for $534 billion for the core budget of the Defense Department — a $38 billion increase — according to “pre-decisional” Pentagon documents obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday. That means there could be some slight changes when the budget actually comes out Monday…Another $51 billion would go for overseas military missions, including $43 billion for ongoing operations in Afghanistan [to protect the CIA’s opium production] and $3.8 billion to ‘train’ Afghan security forces

The lands of all the world have always been the reality beneath all the wealth which has given rise to the imbalance of Ninety-Nine to One.

The supposed ‘wealth-creators’ are producing global-poverty instead of prosperity by attacking the planet. As global-predators they’ve decided to kill the 99% that are the renters and the debtors who pay for their own slavery…

The New World Order Revealed

http://www.rense.com/general96/nworevealed.html

The Vatican has claimed global-ownership of all the land, this defines the “How & Why” of the New Global Feudalism. And this is what has driven Agenda 21, brought to us by the UN and NATO, who are actively engaged as global-military-enforcers. In Ukraine: “The Russian president says Kiev’s troops are essentially a foreign NATO legion, which doesn’t act in Ukraine’s national interests”, thus officially labeling the UN & NATO as outlaw-aggressors in the illegal war against the people of Ukraine.

The greater the concentration of the wealth by the 1%, the more taxes are paid by the 99%. The debtors and the renters BTW get none of the benefits which these draconian taxes pay for: While the filthy-rich profit from every bail-out of the banks, which cover their debts and bury the accounts of those which the supposed ‘bailouts’ were hypothetically created to benefit ­ Yet the DEBTS are kept on the books and the middle class is forced to pay for them again!

The untouchable one percent does not really earn their “income” they profit mostly from the Capital Gains. The rich buy the politicians and control the governments in order to qualify as being “Too Big to Jail”. They bought control of the courts and the just-us systems which they’ve been allowed to do: While as “insiders” they’ve also been allowed to profit directly from insider-trading, while for the rest of us that practice is totally illegal. By buying up the government the 1% has been able to buy the public domain, which the public created and paid for decades ago.

The one-percent is fond of claiming to be anti-big-government. But when it comes to all those non-existent taxes most of them not only do NOT pay, but many of those corporations actually get rebates for all the trouble they went to, to steal everything.

This continuing practice has turned most of us back into serfs in the New Feudalism which makes the Dickensian World of England look like the global-kindergarten of world poverty that we’ve become.

The world of today is not one of “inequality”. It has instead descended-directly into the nightmare of global-slavery. The 99% are now paying three times for their own enslavement. They pay first in the illegal taxes leveled against them and again when the money goes to the same banks that created the illegal-debts which their savings are being stolen to pay for in the guise of a bail-out. That’s the second-time: The third time happens because the public’s “debt” is not removed from the books. This chain of events was just broken today by Greece who voted to break free from this living hell by ‘ending austerity’, to create a new way to sustain themselves against the highway-robbery that has been masquerading as ‘one-world-government’ for the last five years. Socialism for the Rich and Global Vulture Capitalism for the poor in every country ­ that’s the mantra! Google “Corporate Welfare” if you don’t believe me.

“When Politicians and the Media work side-by-side: The jokes they create, at our expense, are all on us” ­ RT

This ‘New Feudalism’ is the only ‘reality’ today…

There’s an additional irony in all of this. If people could still read or be able to write there would be a huge market for a new board-game.

Back during the Market Crash of 1929, the Game of Monopoly was created to explain the evils behind ‘the banks’ to the public. A few years passed and then the hugely popular board-game was purchased by Parker-Brothers where it was converted to escape the original reason for its creation. The ‘new’ Monopoly venerated capitalism and actually taught the public how to “acquire properties”, amass wealth and “Get Out of Jail Free”. The Robber Barons in exile loved it!

In fact in many of the current day yuppiedom coffee shops they delight in using names that worship those bygone days. On Polk Street in the city, one of those shops is called “The Robber Baron”, and another within the same block I live on, is called “Contraband” ­ just to give you a taste of what’s going on.

While the artificial names point to a much different time; there are no conversations going on inside those shops. The “coffee” is more expensive than the booze their exclusivity eliminated ­ but the places themselves are as dead as the inside of eighteenth century cemeteries. Talking is frowned on and the only sounds heard are the clicking of computer keyboards.

At the bank: Some tellers tell me they cannot read my checks because I “write” the names of the people the checks are made out to. Cursive writing is becoming obsolete, just like that typewriter above. Consequently the ‘revised form of Monopoly’, that I would dearly love to create, would not be able to make it now: Because it would be in direct competition with all the murder, rape and torture which has stolen the “games divisions” that once involved games that were based on thought and interaction with other people.

Even the number of those who “REMEMBER” what it was like to live in this country when there was no censorship and still a bit of freedom in most places are dying out. Everyone dies! But when this place allowed the new Robber-Barons to steal all our freedoms, there was a death-sentence passed: Not just against creatures of my age, but against the entire world that can no longer remember what real life and real freedom were all about…

‘So now we know. Canadian special forces in Iraq have been “painting” Islamic State targets for our CF-18 fighter-bombers. They’re been operating so close to the front lines that they have come under fire. And they have been shooting back.

That’s not what Prime Minister Stephen Harper promised Parliament on Oct. 3 when he made the case for sending special forces. He insisted, four times, that they would have a “noncombat” role and that there would be “no ground combat mission.”

The Canadian forces would merely “advise and assist” Iraqi and Kurdish troops who are battling the jihadists, he said. Canadians were led to believe that our small force of under 70 “boots on the ground” would be restricted to a teaching role far behind the lines, well away from the fray.’

My theme for 2015 has been the assertion that this will be a year of shattered illusions; social, political, as well as economic. As I have noted in recent articles, 2014 set the stage for multiple engineered conflicts, including the false conflict between Eastern and Western financial and political powers, as well as the growing conflict between OPEC nations, shale producers, as well as conflicting notions on the security of the dollar’s petro-status and the security and stability of the European Union.

Since the derivatives and credit crisis of 2008, central banks have claimed their efforts revolve around intervention against the snowball effect of classical deflationary market trends. The REAL purpose of central bank stimulus actions, however, has been to create an illusory global financial environment in which traditional economic fundamentals are either ignored, or no longer reflect the concrete truths they are meant to convey. That is to say, the international banking cult has NO INTEREST whatsoever in saving the current system, despite the assumptions of many market analysts. They know full well that fiat printing, bond buying, and even manipulation of stocks will not change the nature of the underlying crisis.

Their only goal has been to stave off the visible effects of the crisis until a new system is ready (psychologically justified in the public consciousness) to be put into place. I wrote extensively about the admitted plan for a disastrous “economic reset” benefiting only the global elites in my article ‘The Economic End Game Explained’.

We are beginning to see the holes in the veil placed over the eyes of the general populace, most notably in the EU, where the elites are now implementing what I believe to be the final stages of the disruption of European markets.

The prevailing illusion concerning the EU is that it is a “model” for the future the globalists wish to create, and therefore, the assumption is that they would never deliberately allow the transnational union to fail. Unfortunately, people who make this argument do not seem to realize that the EU is NOT a model for the New World Order, it is in fact a mere stepping stone.

The rising propaganda argument voiced by elites in the International Monetary Fund and the Bank For International Settlements, not to mention the ECB, is not that Europe’s troubles stem from its ludicrous surrender to a faceless bureaucratic machine. Rather, the argument from the globalists is that Europe is failing because it is not “centralized enough”. Mario Draghi, head of the ECB and member of the board of directors of the BIS, tried to sell the idea that centralization solves everything in an editorial written at the beginning of this year.

The most entertaining mysteries are the ones with compelling protagonists, enigmatic and often surreptitious antagonists, and surprising or shocking conclusions.  Indeed, without these essential elements, one is unlikely to read the story at all.  However, when it comes to politics and geopolitics, somehow our mass media storytellers – the scores of journalists, military and counter-terrorism ‘experts,’ and establishment mouthpieces – fail to even point us in the right direction. Not only do they not follow the threads of the story, they prefer to pretend they simply aren’t there.

And so it is with the great ‘mystery’ of Boko Haram, a group that in just a few years has become one of the most recognizable terrorist entities in the world.  Having carried out heinous massacres of men, women, and children, abducted thousands of innocents, and destroyed whole towns, Boko Haram now symbolizes just that perfect blend of barbarism, religious and ideological fundamentalism, and non-white skin, which come together to cast them, in the eyes of westerners especially, as the manifestation of evil – the devil incarnate that can only be destroyed by the forces of righteousness.  You know, the ‘good guys.’

But what happens when there are no ‘good guys’ to be found?  What happens when you follow the story only to find the most cynical of intentions from every player involved?  Such is the case with this Boko Haram story, and indeed the regional politics and geopolitics of West Africa as a whole.

In trying to unravel the labyrinthine web of political, economic, and strategic threads connecting a number of significant actors, it becomes clear that no analysis of Boko Haram is worth reading unless it approaches the issue from three distinctly different, yet intimately connected, angles.

‘Regrettably, the government in Kiev has refused to take the road of a peaceful settlement and does not want to resolve the problem through political means. First they used the law enforcement agencies, then the security services, and then the army. Later, when they ran up against resistance, they suspended military operations, but sadly, they only used the temporary peace to regroup and then start their operations again. They are pursuing these operations again now. Thousands of people have already been killed. This is certainly a real tragedy.

We often speak of the ‘Ukrainian army’, but who is doing the fighting there in reality? Yes, in part it is official armed forces units, but a substantial part of those doing the fighting come from the so-called volunteer nationalist battalions. Essentially, this is not an army but is a foreign legion, in this particular case, a NATO foreign legion, which is not pursuing Ukraine’s national interests of course. They have completely different goals, related to achieving their geopolitical aim of containing Russia, and this is absolutely not in the Ukrainian people’s national interests.’

‘Starting on April 19, 1956, the federal government practiced and planned for a near-doomsday scenario known as Plan C. When activated, Plan C would have brought the United States under martial law, rounded up over ten thousand individuals connected to “subversive” organizations, implemented a censorship board, and prepared the country for life after nuclear attack.

There was no Plan A or B.’

‘While the vaccine industry is exploiting the Disneyland measles outbreak to call for widespread MMR vaccination, nobody in the mainstream media is telling you how the MMR vaccine clinical trial results were faked by Big Pharma in yet another example of runaway scientific fraud by the vaccine industry.

According to two Merck scientists who filed a False Claims Act complaint in 2010 — a complaint which was unsealed three years ago — vaccine manufacturer Merck knowingly falsified its mumps vaccine test data, spiked blood samples with animal antibodies, sold a vaccine that actually promoted mumps and measles outbreaks, and ripped off governments and consumers who bought the vaccine thinking it was “95% effective.”‘
