The secret societies that are the real power in global affairs.

An incredible audio recording of a speech made by JFK for the American Newspaper Publishers Association where he warns the press about the secret societies that are the real power in global affairs.


“The alternative to a new international order is chaos.”

By Henry A. Kissinger (International Herald Tribune), published: JANUARY 12, 2009

kissingerAs the new U.S. administration prepares to take office amid grave financial and international crises. The American prescription for a world financial order has generally been unchallenged. Now disillusionment with the United States’ management of it is widespread. Every country will seek to make itself independent, to the greatest possible degree, of the conditions that produced the collapse.

The economic world has been globalized.

The nadir of the existing international financial system coincides with simultaneous political crises around the globe. Never have so many transformations occurred at the same time in so many different parts of the world and been made globally accessible via instantaneous communication.

“The current crisis can be overcome only by developing a sense of common purpose. The alternative to a new international order is chaos.”

The financial and political crises are, in fact, closely related partly because, during the period of economic exuberance, a gap had opened up between the economic and the political organization of the world.

Not since the inauguration of President John F. Kennedy half a century ago has a new administration come into office with such a reservoir of expectations. It is unprecedented that all the principal actors on the world stage are avowing their desire to undertake the transformations imposed on them by the world crisis in collaboration with the United States.

The extraordinary impact of the president-elect on the imagination of humanity is an important element in shaping a new world order. The role of China in this new world order is equally crucial. A relationship that started on both sides as essentially a strategic design to constrain a common adversary has evolved over the decades into a pillar of the international system.

China made possible the American consumption splurge by buying American debt; America helped the modernization and reform of the Chinese economy by opening its markets to Chinese goods.

Each side of the Pacific needs the cooperation of the other in addressing the consequences of the financial crisis. Now that the global financial collapse has devastated Chinese export markets, China is emphasizing infrastructure development and domestic consumption.

America needs Chinese cooperation to address its current account imbalance and to prevent its exploding deficits from sparking a devastating inflation. What kind of global economic order arises will depend importantly on how China and America deal with each other over the next few years.

Kissinger says an Obama presidency is a great opportunity to set up a New World Order.

in this video Henry Kissinger says:

“The president-elect is coming into office at a moment when there is upheaval in many parts of the world simultaneously… … “You have India, Pakistan; you have the jihadist movement. So he can’t really say there is one problem, that it’s the most important one. But he can give new impetus to American foreign policy partly because the reception of him is so extraordinary around the world. His task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period when, really, a new world order can be created. It’s a great opportunity, it isn’t just a crisis.”

Chinese Vice Premier meets Henry Kissinger

kissinger-meets-chinese-vice-premierBEIJING, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) — Chinese Vice Premier Wang Qishan met Tuesday with former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger on the sidelines of celebrations marking the 30th anniversary of diplomatic ties.

Wang first paid tribute to Kissinger for his great contribution to China-U.S. relations.

“It is fair to say you are the only senior official alive who has witnessed the entire course of diplomatic relations between the two countries from the very beginning,” Wang said.

Kissinger meets with Russians …

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev sounds optimistic about improved relations after Nixon’s secretary of State and other former high-ranking officials pay an informal visit.
Kissinger led a team of prominent former U.S. officials in meetings in Moscow this week who were acting on their own but echoing the message of cooperation from an Obama administration that has pledged to “reset” relations that have become tense in recent years. And the young Russian president, still regarded by many observers as an apprentice to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, spoke encouragingly of efforts to end the acrimony.


“This surprising term ‘reset’ will, I hope, reflect the essence of the changes we would like to see,” Medvedev said. “We are counting on a reset. We hope it takes place.”

kissinger_primakovHis relatively passive remarks reflected the prevailing Russian contention that relations have soured because of U.S. belligerence and that the onus is on Washington to soften its behavior.

Kissinger, who also met with Putin, assured reporters that he’d found ample ground for cooperation. “I’m happy to report that the differences were not so remarkable and the agreements were considerable,” he said.

The Nixon-era secretary of State was joined on the trip by other prominent officials from previous administrations, including former Secretary of State George Shultz, former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, former Defense Secretary William Perry and former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin.

The White House said the group had not been sent by President Obama. “They’re private citizens and not there at the behest of the White House,” said an official, speaking on condition of anonymity. “But they did inform the White House beforehand.”

A foreign policy realist, Kissinger is an advocate of finding accommodation with the Russians and setting aside tensions that sharpened during George W. Bush’s presidency.

The tensions have raised anticipation for a meeting between Obama and Medvedev on the sidelines of next month’s G-20 summit in London. On Friday, Medvedev said he was looking forward to the encounter.

“Many issues have accumulated in recent years that should be discussed,” he said.

Plans for the demise of the free Internet

March 14, 2009 –“The Canadian’s” Mike Finch “North American Union (NAU) watch” reports that US and Canadian organizations want to end free flow Internet information. He cites an “net-neutrality activist group” discovery of “plans for the demise of the free Internet by 2010 in Canada,” and by 2012 globally.

free-internetCanada’s two largest ISPs, Bell Canada and TELUS, are behind a scheme to limit browsing, block out sites, and charge fees on most others as part of a 2012 “planned full (NAU) launching.” Web host I Power’s Reese Leysen called it “beyond censorship: it is killing the biggest (ever) ‘ecosystem’ of free expression and freedom of speech.” He cited big company inside sources providing information on “exclusivity deals between ISPs and big content providers (like TV studios and video game publishers) “to decide which sites will be in the standard package offered customers, leaving the rest of the Internet unreachable except for fees.”

Leysen called his source “100% reliable” and cited similar information from a Dylan Pattyn Time magazine article, based on Bell Canada and TELUS sources. Plans are for “only the top 100 – 200 sites making the cut in the initial subscription package,” likely to include major news outlets at the expense of smaller, alternative ones. “The Internet would become a playground for billion-dollar content providers,” like cable TV providers, unless efforts are made to stop it.

Leysen thinks US and global ISPs have similar plans that include free speech restrictions and privacy invasions. The stakes are high if he’s right. Yet the profit potential is huge and friendly governments may oblige. Also involved are “deceptive marketing and fear tactics” (like citing child pornography threats) to gain public approval for subscription services masquerading as online safety.

The time to stop it is now.

China blocked access to The New York Times

When computer users in cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou tried to connect on Friday to nytimes.com, they received a message that the site was not available, the newspaper said.

There was no access to the site from Beijing late on Saturday without the protection of a virtual private network (VPN).

newyorktimes-chinaA spokesman for China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs defended government censorship efforts that block access to some foreign Web sites, saying they had broken Chinese laws by promoting the idea that “two Chinas” exist.

“I hope these Web sites will exercise self-discipline and not do anything that violates Chinese laws,” said Liu Jianchao, a ministry spokesman, according to a transcript (in Chinese) of a Tuesday press conference.

China regularly blocks sites it finds unsavory, particularly those related to Tibet or critical of the Communist Party.

Access to the Chinese-language versions of the BBC, Voice of America and Hong Kong media Ming Pao News and Asiaweek were blocked early this month, Asiaweek said.

China has the world’s greatest number of Internet users, allowing its citizens vastly increased access to information. The country has 162 million Internet users and at least 1.3 million websites, but free expression is closely watched by surveillance experts and material is scanned for political content, often with the help of big international service providers such as Yahoo! and Google.

In response, it has set up a team of personnel who police the Internet to remove sensitive content and posts, warn bloggers who cross the line and block access to certain sites. Their apparatus of Internet repression is considered more extensive and more advanced than in any other country in the world.

In fact, the regime not only blocks website content but also monitors who is using the Internet and what they are using it for. Amnesty International notes that China “has the largest recorded number of imprisoned journalists and cyber-dissidents in the world.” The “offenses” they are accused of include communicating with groups abroad, opposing the persecution of the Falun Gong, signing online petitions, and calling for reform and an end to corruption.

be-quietThe Chinese government maintains an active interest in preventing users from viewing certain web content, both sexually explicit and non-sexually explicit. That it has managed to configure overlapping nationwide systems to effectively block such content from users who do not regularly seek to circumvent such blocking. Such blocking systems are becoming more refined even as they are likely more labor and technology intensive to maintain than cruder predecessors.

Internet censorship is control or suppression of the publishing or accessing of information on the Internet.

Certain countries censor access to information on the Web through DNS filtering. This is a process whereby politically challenging information is blocked by domain address. State censors also filter for politically or socially-unacceptable ideas in e-mail. And individual privacy rights and community gatherings are similarly regulated.

Most countries indulging in censorship claim to be protecting their citizens from pornographic contagion. But the underlying motive is to prevent challenging opinions from spreading and coalescing through the chokehold of state-sponsored control. This includes banning information that ranges from political opinion, religious witness, “foreign” news, academic and scholarly discovery, news of human rights abuses all the intellectual exchange that an autocratic leadership considers to be destabilizing.

“The Chinese model of an internet that allows economic growth but not free speech or privacy is growing in popularity, from a handful of countries five years ago to dozens of governments today who block sites and arrest bloggers.”

China blocked access to Google and demanded that computers sold in China come supplied with an Internet nanny filter

The order by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology was unprecedented in scope: All personal computers sold in the country as of July 1 would have to include government-sponsored Internet filtering software.

Known as Green Dam-Youth Escort, the software must be preinstalled on all personal computers sold in China by July 1. The government has said it will pay for the software for at least a year as part of its campaign against “unhealthy and vulgar” material on the Internet.

Greem Dam internet filter in ChinaHuman rights advocates and the ranks of China’s Internet users have been especially critical, saying Green Dam, promoted by the government as a tool allowing users to protect themselves or their children against pornography on the Web, is really a thinly concealed attempt by the government to expand censorship.

“Their goal is to limit the access of information, not just pornography,” said Li Fangping, a rights lawyer in Beijing who is challenging the government directive. “I feel like as a citizen, my right to know has been violated.”

Software engineers who have examined Green Dam in recent days say it is designed to do more than filter out adult content. Deep inside the program, they say, are data files with the sorts of search terms and key words the authorities use to block certain topics, including Falun Gong, the banned spiritual movement, and the 1989 crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Tiananmen Square.

“To us, it shows that the government fears it is losing control over the flood of information on the Internet,” said Isaac Mao, a fellow at Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society, who has studied Green Dam’s coding.

Green Dam can also be used to block politics, not just Playboy. Once you start censoring the Web, you restrict the ability to imagine and innovate. You are telling young Chinese that if they really want to explore, they need to go abroad.

internet-censorship

The capriciousness of state-sanctioned censorship is wide-ranging.

In Mauritania – as in most countries – owners of cybercafes are required to supply government intelligence agents with copies of e-mail sent or received at their establishments.

Even less draconian governments, like Malaysia, have threatened Web-publishers, whose only crime is to publish frequent Web site updates. Timely and relevant information is seen as a threat.

South Korea’s national security law forbids South Koreans from any contact – including contact over the Internet – with their North Korean neighbors.

Turkey is blocking YouTube at the moment, Thailand and Vietman block sites like Youtube, online gaming and news or political sites. Kuwait, Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Oman also block access to sites and internet services.

Brasil Telecom, is blocking VoIP traffic using network management software called NarusInsight purchased from US-based Narus. Brasil Telecom chose the software so that they could regulate IP telephony within Brazil and stop revenue loss due to VoIP.

Internet censorship is spreading and becoming more sophisticated across the planet, even as users develop savvier ways around it. Thousands of controversial websites are blocked in each nation.

The Internet filtering regime in Saudi Arabia concentrates on a few specific areas: pornography, drugs, gambling, circumvention tools (sites that offer ways to access blocked sites) and religious topics.

Google’s page-translation service was blocked when it was discovered that it could be used as a proxy to access content by entering the blocked URL. The popular information technology blog boingboing.net is currently blocked because one entry from a few years ago offers information about how to surf the Internet anonymously.

Amnesty International has warned that the internet “could change beyond all recognition” unless action is taken against the erosion of online freedoms.

The warning comes ahead of a conference organized by Amnesty, where victims of repression will outline their plights.

The “virus of internet repression” has spread from a handful of countries to dozens of governments, said the group. Amnesty accused companies such as Google, Microsoft and Yahoo of being complicit in the problem.

Interception of e-mail and monitoring online content

pornografy-censoredGermany was an early pioneer in facilitating Internet access and is today one of the 20 most connected-up countries in the world. However, the authorities have taken steps to fight online racism and pornography that could threaten freedom of expression and message privacy.

Germany’s history means it is quick these days to censor websites preaching racial hatred. But though it is simple to ask ISPs to block access to local neo-Nazi sites, it is a more delicate matter to routinely filter such sites based abroad and this has caused heated debate.

After the 11 September attacks, an anti-terrorist law pushed through parliament by interior minister Otto Schily at the end of 2001. The Telecommunications Interception Order allows intelligence officials and police to access online activity stored in digital form, including details of services used by customers, e-mail exchanges, data enabling senders or users to be identified and the records of telecommunications firms.

Germany belongs to the US spy network Echelon

The media revealed in June 2001 that the government had allowed the country to become a link in the US Echelon electronic spy network. The Bavarian daily paper Merkur, citing a US military intelligence report, said the US base at Bad Aibling (Bavaria) housed one of Echelon’s biggest European electronic monitoring and interception centres, after the US base at Menwith Hill, in Britain. It enables the US to spy on e-mails sent from much of Europe, including all the former Soviet bloc countries.

They’ve got it taped

In the booming surveillance industry they spy on whom they wish, when they wish, protected by barriers of secrecy, fortified by billions of pounds worth of high, high technology. Duncan Campbell reports from the United States on the secret Anglo-American plan for a global electronic spy system for the 21st century capable of listening in to most of us most of the time.

A secret listening agreement, called UKUSA (UK-USA), assigns parts of the globe to each participating agency. GCHQ at Cheltenham is the co-ordinating centre for Europe, Africa and the Soviet Union (west of the Ural Mountains).

The NSA covers the rest of the Soviet Union and most of the Americas. Australia–where another station in the NSA listening network is located in the outback–co-ordinates the electronic monitoring of the South Pacific, and South East Asia.

With 15,000 staff and a budget of over £500 million a year the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is by far the largest part of British intelligence. Successive UK governments have placed high value on its eavesdropping capabilities, whether against Russian military signals or the easier commercial and private civilian targets.

Both British and American domestic communications are also being targeted and intercepted by the ECHELON network, the US investigators have been told. The agencies are alleged to have collaborated not only on targeting and interception, but also on the monitoring of domestic UK communications.

Special teams from GCHQ Cheltenham have been flown in secretly in the last few years to a computer centre in Silicon Valley near San Francisco for training on the special computer systems that carry out both domestic and international interception.

China’s bid for world domination

The leaders of China want to conquer the world because this is the only way for them to resolve all of their domestic problems.

chinese-chicken-factory

China is becoming the manufacturing hub of the world and is on the verge of supplanting the United States as the primary driver of the global economy.

China never will declare war, as it will not challenge other countries to a duel, but it will annihilate the entire free West for to stay in power. Chinese are preparing to invade the western civilizations step by step. First absorbing fresh financial resources by offering a cheaper industrial production and copying the technological knowledge by a new class of technicians formed in a fast growing educational system.

It is easy for China to beat us, because our way to do business is simply idiotic.  We pay for process and not for results. We are spending a lot of money and many years in research for new technologies what for the Chinese cost half and took half as much time to develop.

human tsunami – a new concept of migration to all countries around the world

In a few years more than a quarter part of world population will connect to the same capacity of consume like people in the ¨Free¨ industrial countries.   As China’s economy continue growth in education and the economy, China will attain in short time a Gross Domestic Product per capita (GDPpc) ot at least US$10,000 per year, resulting in a change of internal society to category Partly Free in the ratings of political rights and civil liberties by 2015 and Free by 2025. Than Chinese people will multiply their existing global presence. They will start like big waves to explore all the world, to establish and exchange commercial and human relations and migrant uncontrollably to different countries all over the world ……….

China is now the largest higher education system in the world: it awards more university degrees than the USA and India combined.

University enrollments in China have reportedly risen from under 10% of young people in 1999 to over 21% in 2006, a phenomenally fast expansion. China has overtaken every other country in the world except the US in terms of the numbers of doctoral degrees awarded. But in just three or four years China will produce more PhD students like the current world leader, the US.

Chinese don’t smell!

With 5 thousands of years of elegant civilization, people there don’t have perfume industry. Chinese are very clean and hygienic and have much weaker body odor.

Chinese actually smell less than whites, because of different sweat glands. The Chinese have less alpha type sweat glands that give rise to bacterias that, when dead, cause the sweat to smell badly.

The only people who smell bad are the Westerners and they use deo to mask their body odour so Chinese call westeners dirty people.

A Millionaire Boom In China

chinese-junkAccording to the World Wealth Report, China had the second-fastest-growing millionaire population. It grew 20.3% to 415,000 last year. The billionaire population grew even faster, the March Forbes’ list included 42 Chinese billionaires, up from 20 the previous year.

More than 400,000 Chinese have a net worth over $1 million, excluding property, according to Merrill Lynch & Co. And mainland millionaires control some $530 billion in assets, Boston Consulting Group estimates.

Within a few years the Chinese middle class will be larger than the total population of the United States. I would bite money that by 2015 China has the most millionaires and billionaires.

China in 2007 stood as the second-largest economy in the world after the US

After 1978 Chinese leaders focused on market-oriented economic development. The restructuring of the economy and resulting efficiency gains have contributed to a more than tenfold increase in GDP. For much of the population, living standards have improved dramatically and the room for personal choice has expanded. By the end of 2007, more than 5,000 domestic Chinese enterprises had established direct investments in 172 countries and regions around the world. Annual inflows of foreign direct investment in 2007 rose to $75 billion.

dolarBeijing had the power to set off a dollar collapse if it choose to do so.

China’s massive hoard is the result of its large current-account surplus, significant inward foreign direct investment, and big inflows of speculative capital over the past couple of years. In theory, flows of foreign money into China should push up the yuan, but China has resisted this, forcing the central bank to buy up the surplus foreign currency.

Now, China will just go on buying the things what needs to continue her expansion – mining companies, weapons, technologies, oil fields, farm products…or maybe farms themselves.

China’s “nuclear option”China held 1.9 trillion dollars worth of foreign exchange reserve by September this year … enough to buy all the farmland in Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Colorado, New Mexico, Montana, Wyoming, Oklahoma and probably Texas too.

Described as China’s “nuclear option” in the state media, such action could trigger a dollar crash at a time when the US currency is already breaking down through historic support levels.

It would also cause a spike in US bond yields, hammering the US housing market and perhaps tipping the economy into recession. It is estimated that China holds over $ 1,900 billion in a mix of dollars and US bonds.

Hillary Clinton said foreign control over 44 percent of the US national debt. This had left America acutely vulnerable. America being “held hostage to economic decisions made in Beijing, Shanghai, or Tokyo”.

China doubles gold reserves

China is in a Dollar Trap. A sudden dump of US dollar is out of question. It will hurt the US, China and the world economy. But it does not mean China cannot gradually diversify away from the US dollar. The recent data shows China just doubled its gold reserves from 600 tonnes to 1054 tonnes. China now became the 7th largest holder of gold in the world, surpassing Switzerland and Japan.

goldChina has the biggest foreign exchange reserves in the world, totaling almost $2,000 billion dollars.  About two-thirds of this is estimated to be in US dollars.

But China has been backing away from the dollar for a while; three years ago Beijing broke the peg that linked its currency, the renminbi, and the dollar. Then, just before the London G20 summit earlier this month, China suggested that the time might have come for countries to reduce their reliance on the US dollar as a reserve currency. Nonetheless about two-thirds of China’s foreign exchange reserves is estimated still to be in dollars.

But the Chinese move has given a small boost to the gold price, up $5.50 at $913 an ounce in London, and a big booststore of value to those traditional investors who still believe that gold is the safest.

China is a military machine of 1.3 billion human parts

Today, the Chinese military is a hugely expanded and modernized force, much stronger than what the United States faced in Korea in 1950, or India encountered in 1962, or the Russians faced in 1967 at the Ussuri River.

su30mkclimbingChina is building its military machine at an annual cost of more than US$ 60 billion for to support the 2.4 million People’s Liberation Army, 300,000 air force personnel and 200,000 servicemen in the navy. In addition, about US$30 billion a year is spent on a military industrial complex in central China, which is at the center of its three-tier modernization program.

In 1986 the Chinese leaders decided to establish domination with the help of post-nuclear weapons to be developed by Project 863, the world’s largest program for the development of molecular nano superweapons with global-scale range of destruction. With this weapons they will be able to destroy the Western means of nuclear retaliation, and then the West will be at the mercy of China.

China forms part in space competition

Apollo proved that the Moon is made of the same stuff as the Earth. All what’s valuable here on Earth exists on the moon too –  Platinum, gold, copper, titanium, diamonds …  the Chinese are working on a series of moon rockets for to be the first to get to the Moon and fix the rights to exploit these mineral deposits!

china-space-competitionIn 2007, the Chinese government conducted its 100th space launch with a Long March rocket, carried out a successful anti-satellite (ASAT) test, commenced operations of the Beidou satellite navigation and positioning system, and launched its Chang’e 1 lunar orbiter.

Beijing already has invested in significant space-denial capabilities that will allow it to destroy or disable American satellites in the event of a future conflict. The January 2007 ASAT test — when a direct-assent kill vehicle made a direct hit against a satellite that was traveling at 7.42 meters per second — was the most potent demonstration of this emerging capability.

We are the Trendsetters, but Chinese are the workers!

¨Chinese people are quiet, peaceable, tractable, free from drunkenness, and they are as industrious as the day is long. A disorderly Chinaman is rare, and a lazy one does not exist. So long as a Chinaman has strength to use his hands he needs no support from anybody; white men often complain of want of work, but a Chinaman offers no such complaint; he always manages to find something to do¨.

in the words of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known as the author of Mark Twain,published in 1872 in his book, Roughing It

china-5000-years

Barack Obama will take a bold step and will strike an agreement with China which will allow Americans to transfer their entire industrial base and jobs to China in return for being able to continue to spend and shop until they drop without worrying about the future of their children or the possibility of U.S. insolvency.

Control oil and you control nations, control food and you control the people

Posted in american dream, Colonialism, economy, financial crisis, globalization, health, history, Kissinger, new order, politics, world domination with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 10/11/2008 by Walter

The ultimate goal of Henry Kissinger, the “hired hand” of Rockefeller dynasty.

America’s post-world war II dominance rests on two pillars and one commodity – unchallengeable military power and the dollar as the world’s reserve currency combined with the quest to control global oil and other energy resources.

economic-powerIn the midst of a worldwide drought and stock market collapse, consider Henry Kissinger’s classified memo in April, 1974. It was on a secret project called National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) that was shaped by Rockefeller interests and aimed to adopt a “world population plan of action” for drastic global population control – meaning to reduce it. The US led the effort, and it worked like this – it made birth control in developing countries a prerequisite for US aid. Engdahl summed it up in blunt terms: “if these inferior races get in the way of our securing ample, cheap raw materials, then we must find ways to get rid of them.”

UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reporting sharply higher food prices along with severe shortages, and warned this condition is extreme, unprecedented and threatens billions with hunger and starvation. Prices are up 40% this year after a 9% rise in 2006, and it forced developing states to pay 25% more for imported food and be unable to afford enough of it.

american-dreamVarious explanations for the problem are cited that include growing demand, higher fuel and transportation costs, commodity speculation, the use of corn for ethanol production (taking one-third of the harvest that’s more than what’s exported for food) and extreme weather while ignoring the above implications – the power of agribusiness to manipulate supply for greater profits and “cull the herd” in targeted Third World countries. Affected ones are poor, and FAO cites 20 in Africa, 9 in Asia, 6 in Latin America and 2 in Eastern Europe that in total represent 850 million endangered people now suffering from chronic hunger and related poverty. They depend on imports, and their diets rely heavily on the type grains agribusiness controls – wheat, corn and rice plus soybeans. If current prices stay high and shortages persist, millions will die – maybe by design.

exxon-dessert-eagleUnder the banner of the United Nations, the new Bretton Woods framework, the IMF, World Bank and the GATT, were established for one purpose – to integrate the developing world into the US-dominated Global North so its wealth could be transfered to powerful business interests, mostly in the US.

So far, Washington and the industry are on a roll toward controlling oil and food. The pursuit was ongoing with little public knowledge of how far advanced things are and how reckless the scheme is – to genetically engineer all plants and life forms and to control world population by culling its “unwanted” parts. Hundreds of millions around the world stand opposed, but it’s unclear if that’s enough.

Big Banks controlling the Federal Reserve and our money (dollar), Big Oil our world energy resources, Big Media our information, Big Pharma our health, Big Technology our state-of-the-art everything and watching us, Big Defense our wars, Big Pentagon waging them, and other corporate predators exploiting our lives for profit.

Study Confirms Genetically Modified Corn Threaten Human Health and Fertility

pregnant-womanA long-term feeding study commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth, and carried out by Veterinary University Vienna, confirms genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world.

Feeding mice with genetically modified corn developed by the US-based Monsanto Corporation led to lower fertility and body weight, according to the study conducted by the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna. Lead author of the study Professor Zentek said, there was a direct link between the decrease in fertility and the GM diet, and that mice fed with non-GE corn reproduced more efficiently.

America is losing its superpower status in the global system

irak-war-victimsIn 2008 appeared some obstacles which produced big interruptions in the enlargement of  American power and it seems that this plan is doomed to failure. The Financial Crisis of 2008 bankrupted the American economic system and the dollar is loosing value, the big banks are crashing, the oil price is sinking, the wars in Irak and Afghanistan are complicating without possibility to win them ….. promising to initiate a big change Obama is elected new president in the United States …..

Gorbachev s russian Perestroika finished the cold war. Barack Obama s Perestroika will finish the economical war for Americans domination.

The new crisis affecting the global financial system based on parasitic speculation and usury is a terminal crisis. It can no longer be solved through purely financial and monetary mechanisms and measures. If US authorities only concentrate on this type of measure, then a truly serious collapse is imminent and unavoidable.

finances, energy and food in crisis

For the first time in modern economic times, three major crises – affecting finances, energy and food – are coinciding, coming together and merging. Each interacts with the others, exponentially worsening the deterioration of the real economy.

As much as the authorities try to minimize the seriousness of the moment, the truth is that we are facing an economic cataclysm of unprecedented magnitude, whose social effects are just beginning to be felt and will explode with total brutality in the next several months.

From financial crisis we have gone on to a social crisis. And the authoritarian policies emerge again. The European Parliament on June 18 approved the infamous “directive of return,” and the Spanish authorities have announced their willingness to arrange for the eviction from Spain of one million foreign workers.

On top of this awful situation comes the third oil shock, as the price of a barrel of crude rises to about US$140. That is an irrational increase (in 1998, a barrel cost less than US$10), due not only to an excessive demand but, above all, to the action of many speculators who are betting on the continuing rise of a fuel on its way to extinction.

As if this whole context were not gloomy enough, the food crisis has suddenly worsened, reminding us that the specter of hunger continues to threaten almost 1 billion people. In about 40 countries, the high cost of food has provoked uprisings and general revolts. The summit of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), held June 5 in Rome to consider alimentary security, could not reach an agreement to relaunch worldwide food production. Here, too, speculators fleeing from the financial disaster are partly responsible, because they”re betting on a high price of future harvests. So even agriculture is being financialized.

The big emerging countries, who now lead the global growth want to enter the closed club of rich countries and become full partners in the conduct of economic issues on the planet. This club is dominated by the largest world economies Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, United States and the European Union.  In the group of G 20 this nations include 12 emerging nations: Brazil, Russia, India, China, Argentina, Australia, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea and Turkey.

In the heat of the financial storm that is shaking the most advanced economies, Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC group called by its acronym) do not want to settle for a seat in the second category of the G20 summit convened to discuss the crisis.

Those four nations had a “call to reforming multilateral institutions to reflect structural changes in the global economy” and also demonstrate “the central role that emerging markets are now playing.”
