UK Loads Up Rubber Bullets For Student March

Police in London are preparing for war as students prepare to march on Wednesday. The Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) has authorized firing rubber bullets on the 10,000 students expected to march with the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts.

Fears prevail that a repeat of August’s riots, which left five dead, scores injured, could be on the cards if tempers flare. Then, police were slammed for a weak response to shocking public disorder riot wave that swept the country.
MPS Commissioner, Sir Paul Stephenson, was also dressed down for only deploying 225 officers during similar student protests last year which saw the Conservative Party headquarters ransacked on November 10. But it’s clear this time the riot squads will be ready to pull the trigger.
With one officer for every two and a half demonstrators, Scotland Yard won’t be outmanned this time as a 4,000 strong force is set to be deployed.          
Resorting to such an unprecedented use of force is reminiscent of tactics employed by dictatorships the UK is ostensibly opposed to.  Plastic bullets, which were used extensively by HM’s forces during the troubles in Northern Ireland, killed some 14 people, including 9 children, between 1973 and 1981.  
The president of the Association of Chief Police Officers, Sir Hugh Orde, who deployed plastic bullets while serving in Northern Ireland, was highly critical of the latest MPS decision: "I do not think it would be sensible in any way, shape or form to deploy water cannon or baton rounds in London. Baton rounds are very serious bits of equipment. I would only deploy them in life-threatening situations. What is happening in London is not an insurgency that is going to topple the country," he told the Guardian.  
Police are also hoping to keep Occupy London protestors camped out at St Paul’s cathedral from joining the students.  However, many camping outside the cathedral support the latest round of student-led protests, and they are expected to link up despite the potential of heavy-handed, even deadly, police tactics.

Angelo: We are seeing a picture develop. Hands up whoever believes the government has been aware well in advance of the population that it has condescendingly failed to inform of the dire economic armageddon unfolding and this as they know is only the beginning. 

Standing back as we can see has now given the police, as far as they are concerned, the right to bring out the guns. They may find a new reaction in the vigilante London that emerged after the last night of riots. Solidarity with protestors. Perhaps you think, well of course, thats their job, to keep order. I would say if you treat the people like idiots they are likely to develop a similar respect for you. This is OUR government, I view it dimly when clandestine business goes on overseas. I believe it is a cardinal sin when played against its own so called free voting population.

Watch out for agent provocateurs and false flag events, hell there's a couple of juicy, unnecessary wars coming along any minute to keep us distracted.

Dressing The Dead: Historian’s Personal Necropolis

A ghoulish collection of necro-dolls gathered by an obsessive cemetery expert and uncovered by police has shocked residents of the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod. RT has obtained a copy of shocking footage made by police who searched his apartment.
Piles of gravestone plaques stocked on the shelves, maps of graves scattered around the tables, a bone here or there, or a skull – it can safely be said that the apartment’s owner, Anatoly Moskvin, is a big fan of cemeteries.          Source

Papademos: Greece's new leader?

Lucas Papademos, the former vice-president of the European Central Bank, is considered by many analysts to be the frontrunner to become Greece's new prime minister. If chosen as the head of an interim coalition government, the 65-year old economist will be tasked with approving the terms of a new international bailout that includes years of austerity and bank losses in billions, measures he had warned against when they were first announced.Experts say Papademos' job will also include both restoring the confidence of Greece's rescuers in Europe, and persuading sceptics at home that a second bailout is something the country cannot survive without.Papademos was governor of the Bank of Greece between 1994 and 2002, overseeing the country's transition from the drachma to the euro and advising George Papandreou, the country's outgoing Greek prime minister.He has also held academic positions at Columbia University, Harvard University and the University of Athens and

“…He has served as Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston in 1980. He joined the Bank of Greece in 1985 as Chief Economist, rising to Deputy Governor in 1993 and Governor in 1994. During his time as Governor of the national bank, Mr Papademos was involved in Greece’s transition from the drachma to the euro as its national currency.[3] After leaving the Bank of Greece in 2002, Papademas became the Vice President to Jean-Claude Trichet at the European Central Bank from 2002 to 2010. In 2010 he left that position to serve as an advisor to George Papandreou.[3] He has been a member of the Trilateral Commission since 1998.[4]

The Lightbulb Conspiracy

Consumerism = 1. Advertisement -- -- 2. Planned Obsolescence -- -- 3. Credit : These 3 stages of modern business are worth noting regarding the promulgation of today's world wide consumer system which is stripping the natural wealth of the planet for all inhabitants, including man.Stages 1 (Advertisement), and 3 (Credit) are well known and often discussed in the mainstream arena.Stage 2 of this consumer process is much less talked about.Stage 2 - Planned Obsolescence..(Is often compulsory for those entering into an established market.. for them to be allowed into the fold.) Obsolescence is the state of being when an object, service or practice is no longer wanted, even though it may still be in good working order.
Thanks to international, inter-company agreements, and where obsolescence is planned, (which is well illustrated here in the case of the light bulb's intentional life-reduction over the last century), we really Do have an identifiable template by which large companies Are going to operate under in order to maintain consistent profit.
These agreements also foster alliances between the largest companies, solidifying the groups' monopoly over their particular market areas.
If there is a display of competition and output styles between different companies, there will at the very least be Some agreements in place to preserve both a steady income and a mutually beneficial monopoly/ duopoly/ oligopoly for the established players involved. Negating any veritable competition.
This has been going on for too long now.. resulting in disastrous consequences and (how ever you see it) ever-decreasing/expanding circles of self-interest.
The illusion of competition is diligently maintained. It's part of everyday business now. Maintained by those in the know (the heads of companies, executives, lobbyists etc.) for the 'benefit' of those who care to actually watch what's going on.
These sorts of corporate activities serve big money interests alone,
NOTE: Over time, production processes are becoming less and less dependent on man power.

Today's corporatism is a form of fascism.. less obvious than Nazism ever was. and is far more detrimental to the planet's survival.. etc.
It just a little obvious in this day and age what's going on here.. what's been transpiring on our planet since at least the second world war and more likely, to differing degrees, a long time before then.

Michael Hudson on Capital Account - Lauren Lyster

Debt is the issue driving many of the top financial headlines now as Europe and the US have racked up too much of it. Dr. Michael Hudson, economics professor and author, has famously often said "debts that can't be repaid won't ,"so the question becomes who gets hurt and who benefits in the process? According to Dr. Hudson when it comes to the Greek sovereign debt crisis, it's European leaders making decisions to benefit banks at the expense of average citizens, pressured by the US government out of the interests in its own banks.

As a new census poverty gauge shows 2.5 million more people are in poverty than the standard gauge (more than 49 million and a 16% poverty rate). Meanwhile Americans are heavily indebted, with student debt as one example expected to surpass one trillion dollars. Do Americans have a solution to these economic conditions? On Capital Account with Lauren Lyster, Dr. Michael Hudson, author and economics professor, says they are certainly part of the reasons Occupy Wall Street is protesting, a movement he calls pre-revolutionary. Hudson characterizes OWS protesters as disillusioned with both political parties and says former President Bill Clinton is acting like a "slimeball " for suggesting OWS should work within the established political system.
Do Americans have an avenue to fight back against their economic conditions? And speaking of fighting back, UK Prime Minster David Cameron got an unusual visitor in the British Parliament...RT's own Max Keiser!

US Airport Cops Now checking Highways Too!

We just love getting an anal probe at airports don't we and you know what they say, US sneezes and we get the cold, so is this a look at what is to come in the UK?

"Oh Great. The TSA is Now Doing Highway Stops"

ou missed it if you blinked, but there was an incident over the summer where TSA agents entered an Iowa Greyhound bus station and conducted a security sweep. For this they were roundly derided, which is what you'd expect given that many people, much of the time, don't particularly enjoy their encounters with the nation's airport security organization.
Now TSA is expanding its surveillance efforts beyond airports and bus terminals, and onto the nation's highways. The agency held an exercise recently, deploying teams to 5 weigh stations and 2 bus stations in the state. Because if there's one thing Americans have been clamoring for, it's more TSA.

The operation was conducted under TSA's Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response program, the abbreviation for which is VIPR, because giving things spooky names is fun. These are the TSA operations that revolve around highways, ports, tunnels, rest areas, etc. The sweep of the Iowa Greyhound station was a VIPR operation and the Tennessee highway stuff is under VIPR as well. Given the program's increasing scope, you'll be glad to know—per Wikipedia—that "various government sources have differing descriptions of VIPR's exact mission." Terrific. 
So if you're a conspiracy theorist who thinks that TSA is just a covert way to soften Americans up for a police state, it's a very good week for you (or a very bad week, depending). As for the rest of us—who just think that national security has become kind of a bumbling, bureaucratic, directionless mess—the prospect of dealing with the agency's notorious incompetence in more and more of daily life is also less than thrilling. Source/full story
