Bix Weir: Financial Crash Coming, War with Russia-China to Protect US Dollar, Ferguson Police Action


Road To Roota

From Greg:

The latest is called “Another 2008 Around the Corner-Bix Weir.” Financial writer and analyst Bix Weir says what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri, is more than just a police action gone deadly. Weir says, “There is definitely discontent out there. The press covers so many things up, and the government gives us so many lies on statistics, such as unemployment, about GDP, and you name it, they lie about it. There is so much bubbling up under the surface, and I do think this is the beginning of something much bigger. . . .I see another 2008 coming right around the corner.” Weir goes on to say, “. As soon as Russia and China start following through with these deals already announced and trading oil for other things, you are going to start seeing the collapse of the dollar which will trigger the derivative bomb.”

How long can they keep this game going? Weir contends, “It’s almost exactly like the “Wizard of Oz” and the little man behind the curtain. He’s sitting in the basement of the U.S. Treasury and New York Fed orchestrating all these players to do what they are supposed to do. They get all the banks to rig every market to make sure the system stays together. It’s hit a point now that it’s so big and so unwieldy that they want it to crash so we can move on to something else. . . . If all the debt is gone, then all the electronic assets will be gone too because the debt is somebody’s asset, and it is usually the bankers that claim that. This whole system will shut down. They have been ready to go back to some sort of gold backed system. This will be the biggest thing to happen in human history.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Bix Weir of RoadToRoota.com.

Hackers stole secret #MH370-related documents from Malaysian officials – report


RT

Reuters / Toru Hanai

A targeted phishing attack on a handful of Malaysian officials involved in investigating the disappearance of flight MH370 in March reportedly gave the perpetrators, presumably of Chinese origin, access to a trove of classified material.

The successful hacking attack affected some 30 computers belonging to officials in the Malaysia Airlines, the Civil Aviation Department and the National Security Council, Malaysian newspaper the Star reported on Wednesday.

The malware was posing as a PDF attachment to a new article emailed to the senior officials on March 9, a day after the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 disappeared while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Before Malaysian cyber security experts found and closed the breach a trove of documents, including classified ones, were funneled to an IP address located in China. The malware sent the stolen data by email, which alerted the Malaysians, said Amirudin Abdul Wahab, chief executive at CyberSecurity Malaysia, a governmental agency within the Science, Technology and Innovation Ministry.

“Those email contained confidential data from the officials’ computer, including minutes of meetings and classified documents,” he said as cited by the newspaper. “Some of these were related to the MH370 investigation.”

The agency believes that the hack was related to the MH370 disappearance. There were 153 Chinese nationals on board the missing plane.

“At that time, there were some people accusing the government of not releasing crucial information,” Amirudin said adding that the Malaysian government eventually released everything it had on the incident.

The Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 carrying 239 people disappeared on March 8 over the Indian Ocean. A rescue operation unprecedented in scope and cost was launched to find the plane, but not even debris from the aircraft was discovered.

The frustration over lack of news about the plane sparked occasional protests in China, as people were accusing the Malaysian government of not doing enough to find their loved ones.

There are a number of conspiracy theories regarding the disappearance floating around, claiming that MH370 was hijacked for nefarious purposes by a government, a highly-trained criminal group or a similarly dangerous perpetrator.

#Gaza – Keep up the pressure – Join in the campaign

Dear friends,

As a new round of violence kicks off in Israel-Palestine and more children are killed, it’s not enough just to call for another ceasefire. It’s time to take definitive non-violent action to end this decades long nightmare.

Our governments have failed — while they have talked peace and passed UN resolutions, they and our companies have continued to aid, trade and invest in the violence. The only way to stop this hellish cycle of Israel confiscating Palestinian lands, daily collective punishment of innocent Palestinian families, Hamas firing rockets, and Israel bombing Gaza is to make the economic cost of this conflict too high to bear.

We know it works — when EU countries issued guidelines not to fund the illegal Israeli settlements it caused an earthquake in the cabinet, and when citizens successfully persuaded a Dutch pension fund, PGGM, to withdraw, it created a political storm.

This may not feel like a direct way to stop the current killing, but history tells us that raising the financial cost of oppression can pave a path to peace. Click to call on 6 key banks, pension funds and businesses to pull out — If we all take smart action now and turn up the heat, they could withdraw, the Israeli economy will take a hit, and we can turn the calculation of the extremists politically profiting from this hell upside down:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/israel_palestine_this_is_how_it_ends_loc/?tBAtjib

In the last five weeks three Israeli teenagers were murdered in the West Bank, a Palestinian boy was burnt alive, an American kid was brutally beaten up by Israeli police, and now over 40 Gazan kids have died in Israeli air strikes. This is not the “Middle East conflict”, it’s becoming a war on children. And we are becoming numb to this global shame.

The media makes out like this is an intractable conflict between two equal warring parties, but it is not. Palestinian extremists’ attacks on innocent civilians must be condemned and ended but the root of the conflict lies elsewhere — in the dispossession of the Palestinian people. Israel currently occupies, colonises, bombs, raids, and controls the water, trade and the borders of a legally free nation that has been recognised by the United Nations. In Gaza, Israel has created the largest open-air prison in the world, and then blockaded it. Now as bombs fall, the families, literally have no way to get out.

These are war crimes and we wouldn’t accept that anywhere else, why accept it in Palestine? Half a century ago Israel and its Arab neighbours went to war and Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza. Occupying territory after war happens all the time. But no military occupation should turn into a decades long tyranny which only fuels and benefits extremists who use terror to target the innocent. And who suffers? The majority of loving families on both sides that just want freedom and peace.

To many, particularly in Europe and North America, calling for companies to withdraw investments from financing or taking part in Israel’s occupation of Palestine sounds completely biased. But it’s not — this is the most potent non-violent strategy to end the ritual violence, ensure Israelis’ security and achieve Palestinian freedom. Israel’s power and wealth dwarfs Palestine, and if it refuses to end its illegal occupation, the world must act to make the cost unbearable.

Dutch pension fund, ABP, invests in Israeli banks that help fund the colonisation of Palestine. Massive banks like Barclays invest in suppliers of Israeli arms and other occupation businesses. Computer giant Hewlett-Packard supplies sophisticated surveillance to control the movement of Palestinians. And Caterpillar provides bulldozers that are used to demolish Palestinian homes and farms. If we can create the biggest global call ever to get these companies to pull out, we will show clearly that the world will no longer be complicit in this bloodshed. The Palestinian people are calling on the world to support this path and progressive Israelis support it too. Let’s join them:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/israel_palestine_this_is_how_it_ends_loc/?tBAtjib

Our community has worked to bring peace, hope, and change to some of the world’s toughest conflicts, and often that means taking difficult positions to address the root cause. For years our community has looked for a political solution to this nightmare, but with this new round of horror unfolding in Gaza, the time has come to turn to sanctions and disinvestment to finally help end the horror for Israelis and Palestinians.

With hope and determination,

Alice, Fadi, Ben, Laila, Anna, Ricken, Jo, Nell, Mais and the entire Avaaz team

Liberate yourselves by liberating Palestine – Archbishop Desmond Tutu – Op-Ed


Hareetz.com

My plea to the people of Israel: Liberate yourselves by liberating Palestine

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, in an exclusive article for Haaretz, calls for a global boycott of Israel and urges Israelis and Palestinians to look beyond their leaders for a sustainable solution to the crisis in the Holy Land.

The past weeks have witnessed unprecedented action by members of civil society across the world against the injustice of Israel’s disproportionately brutal response to the firing of missiles from Palestine.

If you add together all the people who gathered over the past weekend to demand justice in Israel and Palestine – in Cape Town, Washington, D.C., New York, New Delhi, London, Dublin and Sydney, and all the other cities – this was arguably the largest active outcry by citizens around a single cause ever in the history of the world.

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu

A quarter of a century ago, I participated in some well-attended demonstrations against apartheid. I never imagined we’d see demonstrations of that size again, but last Saturday’s turnout in Cape Town was as big if not bigger. Participants included young and old, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, agnostics, atheists, blacks, whites, reds and greens … as one would expect from a vibrant, tolerant, multicultural nation.

I asked the crowd to chant with me: “We are opposed to the injustice of the illegal occupation of Palestine. We are opposed to the indiscriminate killing in Gaza. We are opposed to the indignity meted out to Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks. We are opposed to violence perpetrated by all parties. But we are not opposed to Jews.”

Earlier in the week, I called for the suspension of Israel from the International Union of Architects, which was meeting in South Africa.

I appealed to Israeli sisters and brothers present at the conference to actively disassociate themselves and their profession from the design and construction of infrastructure related to perpetuating injustice, including the separation barrier, the security terminals and checkpoints, and the settlements built on occupied Palestinian land.

“I implore you to take this message home: Please turn the tide against violence and hatred by joining the nonviolent movement for justice for all people of the region,” I said.

Over the past few weeks, more than 1.6 million people across the world have signed onto this movement by joining an Avaaz campaign* calling on corporations profiting from the Israeli occupation and/or implicated in the abuse and repression of Palestinians to pull out. The campaign specifically targets Dutch pension fund ABP; Barclays Bank; security systems supplier G4S; French transport company Veolia; computer company Hewlett-Packard; and bulldozer supplier Caterpillar.

Last month, 17 EU governments urged their citizens to avoid doing business in or investing in illegal Israeli settlements.

We have also recently witnessed the withdrawal by Dutch pension fund PGGM of tens of millions of euros from Israeli banks; the divestment from G4S by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; and the U.S. Presbyterian Church divested an estimated $21 million from HP, Motorola Solutions and Caterpillar.

It is a movement that is gathering pace.

Violence begets violence and hatred, that only begets more violence and hatred.

We South Africans know about violence and hatred. We understand the pain of being the polecat of the world; when it seems nobody understands or is even willing to listen to our perspective. It is where we come from.

We also know the benefits that dialogue between our leaders eventually brought us; when organizations labeled “terrorist” were unbanned and their leaders, including Nelson Mandela, were released from imprisonment, banishment and exile.

We know that when our leaders began to speak to each other, the rationale for the violence that had wracked our society dissipated and disappeared. Acts of terrorism perpetrated after the talks began – such as attacks on a church and a pub – were almost universally condemned, and the party held responsible snubbed at the ballot box.

The exhilaration that followed our voting together for the first time was not the preserve of black South Africans alone. The real triumph of our peaceful settlement was that all felt included. And later, when we unveiled a constitution so tolerant, compassionate and inclusive that it would make God proud, we all felt liberated.

Of course, it helped that we had a cadre of extraordinary leaders.

But what ultimately forced these leaders together around the negotiating table was the cocktail of persuasive, nonviolent tools that had been developed to isolate South Africa, economically, academically, culturally and psychologically.

At a certain point – the tipping point – the then-government realized that the cost of attempting to preserve apartheid outweighed the benefits.

The withdrawal of trade with South Africa by multinational corporations with a conscience in the 1980s was ultimately one of the key levers that brought the apartheid state – bloodlessly – to its knees. Those corporations understood that by contributing to South Africa’s economy, they were contributing to the retention of an unjust status quo.

Those who continue to do business with Israel, who contribute to a sense of “normalcy” in Israeli society, are doing the people of Israel and Palestine a disservice. They are contributing to the perpetuation of a profoundly unjust status quo.

Those who contribute to Israel’s temporary isolation are saying that Israelis and Palestinians are equally entitled to dignity and peace.

Ultimately, events in Gaza over the past month or so are going to test who believes in the worth of human beings.

It is becoming more and more clear that politicians and diplomats are failing to come up with answers, and that responsibility for brokering a sustainable solution to the crisis in the Holy Land rests with civil society and the people of Israel and Palestine themselves.

Besides the recent devastation of Gaza, decent human beings everywhere – including many in Israel – are profoundly disturbed by the daily violations of human dignity and freedom of movement Palestinians are subjected to at checkpoints and roadblocks. And Israel’s policies of illegal occupation and the construction of buffer-zone settlements on occupied land compound the difficulty of achieving an agreementsettlement in the future that is acceptable for all.

The State of Israel is behaving as if there is no tomorrow. Its people will not live the peaceful and secure lives they crave – and are entitled to – as long as their leaders perpetuate conditions that sustain the conflict.

I have condemned those in Palestine responsible for firing missiles and rockets at Israel. They are fanning the flames of hatred. I am opposed to all manifestations of violence.

But we must be very clear that the people of Palestine have every right to struggle for their dignity and freedom. It is a struggle that has the support of many around the world.

No human-made problems are intractable when humans put their heads together with the earnest desire to overcome them. No peace is impossible when people are determined to achieve it.

Peace requires the people of Israel and Palestine to recognize the human being in themselves and each other; to understand their interdependence.

Missiles, bombs and crude invective are not part of the solution. There is no military solution.

The solution is more likely to come from that nonviolent toolbox we developed in South Africa in the 1980s, to persuade the government of the necessity of altering its policies.

The reason these tools – boycott, sanctions and divestment – ultimately proved effective was because they had a critical mass of support, both inside and outside the country. The kind of support we have witnessed across the world in recent weeks, in respect of Palestine.

My plea to the people of Israel is to see beyond the moment, to see beyond the anger at feeling perpetually under siege, to see a world in which Israel and Palestine can coexist – a world in which mutual dignity and respect reign.

It requires a mind-set shift. A mind-set shift that recognizes that attempting to perpetuate the current status quo is to damn future generations to violence and insecurity. A mind-set shift that stops regarding legitimate criticism of a state’s policies as an attack on Judaism. A mind-set shift that begins at home and ripples out across communities and nations and regions – to the Diaspora scattered across the world we share. The only world we share.

People united in pursuit of a righteous cause are unstoppable. God does not interfere in the affairs of people, hoping we will grow and learn through resolving our difficulties and differences ourselves. But God is not asleep. The Jewish scriptures tell us that God is biased on the side of the weak, the dispossessed, the widow, the orphan, the alien who set slaves free on an exodus to a Promised Land. It was the prophet Amos who said we should let righteousness flow like a river.

Goodness prevails in the end. The pursuit of freedom for the people of Palestine from humiliation and persecution by the policies of Israel is a righteous cause. It is a cause that the people of Israel should support.

Nelson Mandela famously said that South Africans would not feel free until Palestinians were free.

He might have added that the liberation of Palestine will liberate Israel, too.

An Update from Kevin Annett in Montreal

August 19, 2014, 930 pm EST

On August 15, our Direct Action Unit Alpha Team stopped a planned child sacrificial ritual in the Outremont district of Montreal, and arrested and interrogated two members of the Ninth Circle cult. (see http://www.itccs.org, August 17)

Tonight, I spoke with a DAU liasion here in Montreal and received the following update:

The DAU action on 15 August occurred with the cooperation of elements in the Montreal police, who ensured their action would not be impeded. The DAU team has left Canada and returned to the Central Command in Brussels for debriefing. All of the evidence the team gathered at the action – blood and clothing samples, photos, and the videotaped statement of one Ninth Circle cult member – has been sent to the International Common Law Court as part of its upcoming…

Obama Oversees Brazen Paris Convoy Attack Against Saudi Prince


whatdoesitmean.com

by Sorcha Faal

sp

A new report by the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) circulating in the Kremlin today states that President Barack Obama “ordered and personally oversaw” from the White House a brazen attack conducted by US Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU) commandos against an 11 vehicle Saudi Arabian convoy last night nearing Porte de la Chapelle in northern Paris as it was heading for Le Bourget airport after leaving the Saudi Embassy.

According to this report, and as confirmed by various media sources, the attacked convoy was protecting an as yet unnamed Saudi prince who was briefly detained by these highly-trained DEVGRU commandos, and who were able to not only conduct their mission without firing a shot, but were also able to secure the “sensitive documents” they were after.

A French police source talking to the AFP news agency about this US commando attack further stated “It’s quite an unusual attack. They were obviously well-informed. It’s true that it’s quite a rare way of operating,” and said that “If they were looking for sensitive documents, that changes the nature of the crime. It will no longer be an armed robbery, but something more complicated.”

To how “complicated” this attack really was in fact, this report notes, SVR intelligence operatives in the US had previously warned that Obama was mysteriously returning to the White House this past weekend from his scheduled vacation due the United States facing an “apocalyptic attack” from an estimated 3,000 “Ebola Martyrs” who are already in America and warned are “ready to strike”.

As we had, likewise, reported on after the issuance of last weeks SVR report, of the estimated 111,000 Saudi Arabian students currently in the United States, 8,000 have been identified as being Islamic State (IS) [also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)] terror members, of which nearly 3,000 of them have become “Ebola Martyrs” willing to die in their “mission” of infecting as many Americans as they can before their stated deadline of October.

[Note: The full details about these Saudi Arabian “Ebola Martyrs” as compounded by SVR and other intelligence sources can be read HERE.]

The “sensitive documents” obtained by these DEVGRU commandos, this report continues, were related to these “Ebola Martyrs” who are under the “direct control” of Saudi Prince Khalid bin Bandar Al Saud who heads that nations top spy agency, the General Intelligence Presidency (GIP).

This SVR report further details that this Saudi convoy was attacked by DEVGRU commandos on Obama’s orders based upon information obtained from nearly 25 of these “Ebola Martyrs” detained during the past week in Albania, Montenegro and Bulgaria showing symptoms of this disease, and all of whom stated that their destination was Paris where they would “receive further orders and travel documents”.

The SVR in their new report reiterates from their previous report that Saudi Arabia is using IS and Boko Haram terrorists to target the United States with these “Ebola Martyrs” due to the US$100 million15-acre mega-mosque due to be opened in October outside of Washington D.C. in October, and at which time it will become the largest and most striking example of Islamic architecture in the Western hemisphere.

Of Saudi Arabia’s “greatest fear”, this report says, is the “center of Islambeing removed from Mecca and supplanted in Jerusalem (which the mega-mosque outside Washington D.C. will be a part of) which would, in effect, destroy their nation and the other monarchies of the Gulf region.

Important to note, SVR analysts in this report say, is that Obama has long championed the Muslim Brotherhood organization that took power in Egypt after the 2011 revolution and whose forces toppled the long serving dictator Hosni Mubarak.

Enraged by Obama’s “betrayal” of Mubarak, however, this report continues, Saudi Arabia provided Egypt’s military with over US$5 billion to topple the Muslim Brotherhood, sentence all of its top leadership to death, and install another dictatorial regime.

Former Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit, this report further notes, said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, in which the President told him that he was still a Muslim, and in two separate criminal complaints, Egyptian lawmakers this past June charged both Obama and Hillary Clinton with conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood, charges which stated that they had:

“…cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes…”. Some of the crimes include murder, rape, torture, extortion, bribery, enslavement, and the ethnic cleansing of Egyptian Coptic Christians.” According to one of the criminal charges, Hillary Clinton was, also, found to be working with ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi’s wife, Naglaa Mahmood, in attempting to overthrow the current leader of Egypt, General Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi.

US ally Great Britain, this report continues, is, likewise, being caught in this maelstrom as its long delayed Whitehall report on the Muslim Brotherhood is set to find that this organization (which is contending with Saudi Arabia for the leadership of the Sunni Muslim world) to be “INNOCENT of any wrongdoing”…and which, also, enables them to omit Obama and Clinton’s ties to them.

And, perhaps, most grimly, this SVR report concludes, Obama does, in fact, appear to not only be in a “deadly struggle” with Saudi Arabia for the control of the Sunni Islam world, but has gone even further by waging a de facto war against all of Christianity too, an observation not only made by Russian intelligence analysts, but also by US Senator Rand Paul who this past June warned the American people:

“Christians are being attacked around the world, but you won’t hear much about it on the evening news because the answer’s not convenient. It doesn’t fit the narrative we have been told about radical Islam. The president tries to gloss over who’s attacking and killing Christians. The media describes the killings as sectarian. But the truth is, a worldwide war on Christians is being waged by a fanatical element of Islam.”
