Now We Know Where All The Greek Bank Deposits Have Gone

Draining your banking system dry of deposits and loans is no easy task (just see chart below), and yet the Greeks sure have succeeded. There was only one open question: where did all this money go. Now we know.

Reformed communists & radical right-wing Zionists in 21st century - Assange Episode 2


In one corner of the ring is Slavoj Zizek, a Slovenian sociologist, philosopher and former anti-communist dissident, who turned communist.
In the other corner stands David Horowitz, a radical right-wing Zionist, who back in the day was a left-wing radical and was involved in fundraising for the Black Panther Party.
The referee, Julian Assange, admitted he had some difficulty bringing the conversation back on track as the guest kept on coming back to the Jewish question.

Double Dutch: Will the Hollanders sink The Euro?


Nicholas Sarkozy’s hard landing in Sunday’s first round of the French presidential election reduced another important event in European affairs to background noise. Namely, the imminent collapse of the Dutch government.
For all intents and purposes, that effectively fell on Sunday, together with Sarkozy’s stock with the French electorate.
We know that Francois Hollande, a dreary back room party apparatchik is now a shoo-in, with the blessing of Goldman Sachs, the EU, the CIA, in fact the entire globalist rat pack.
So why the heck should anybody give a damn who runs the land of wind mills and clog dancers?
Well, that very same rat pack mentioned above. And ‘Hollande’ and ‘Hollander’ is certainly one of those cute rhymes of history that strikes a neat chord now and again.

Breaking! Head Climate Monger Jumps Ship: Marc Morano Reports + Star Studded Global Orwellian TSA Grope-athon +


MSNBC, perhaps the most unlikely of news sources, reports on what may be seen as the official end of the man-made global warming fear movement

MSNBC April 23, 2012: 'Gaia' scientist James Lovelock reverses himself: I was 'alarmist' about climate change & so was Gore! 'The problem is we don't know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago' Contrast Lovelock's 2012 skeptical climate views with his 2007 beliefs during the height of the man-made climate fear movement.

It Took The Bank Of Greece Only Three Weeks To Revise It 2012 GDP Forecast Even Lower


Tyler Durden's picture

If there is anyone shocked by today's announcement by the Bank of Greece that the country is once again slashing its full year economic forecast by 10%, aside from the IMF of course, please raise your hand. As a reminder, the IMF, whose projections were the basis for the recently released second bailout, and which assume a flat GDP in 2013, somehow has visibility through 2020. Which is more than can be said for the Bank of Greece: its latest forecast of 4.5% GDP decline was made three weeks ago. THREE WEEKS. And it already is being revised. In other news, we look forward to updating the deposit flight out of Greek banks when the most recent monthly update is released shortly, confirming that the local economy continues to be, simply said, dead. A few more such comparable downward revisions, and the Third Greek bailout (Of European Banks), which is due any second now, may be jeopardized (as it will be more difficult to sell to Germans why they are once again bailing out French banks).

Increase in gold sales expected due to Indian gold buying festival


Gold has recovered a little over the last week or so after falling in price over the weeks before. Now, a huge increase in gold sales is expected because the Indian gold buying festival that is going to take place today, April 24, 2012.

Everyone wants to get in on the fun, one way or another.

“We are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the footfalls multiply tomorrow and that consumers can avail themselves of the choicest piece of jewelry or gold bar after the famine-like conditions that most have experienced,” he added.
As you can see, most everyone in the region is very excited about the festival.

The World Is Cornering The Elite

'Ctrl+C me, my brothers' - Piracy preachers paste themselves in US


A Sweden-born “online piracy religion” is seeking official recognition in the United States. “Kopimists” preach that any act of copying information is sacred and cannot be limited by any human law.
The movement, established in late 2010 by then-19-year-old philosophy student Isak Gerson, holds Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V – the keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste commands – as its sacred symbols. The name Kopimism is world play on “copy me”, inspired by a Biblical quote from 1 Corinthians 11:1, “Copy me, my brothers, just as I copy Christ himself.” It took the group more than a year and three application attempts before Swedish authorities confirmed its status as a religious community. Now Kopimism is seeking foothold across the globe. In addition to Sweden, it has branches in 18 counties now from Japan to Russia to Greece. One has recently been registered in Illinois, USA. The American branch of the church is currently in the process of seeking federal recognition, reports US News.

"Data is what we are made of, data is what defines our life, and data is how we express ourselves," says Christopher Carmean, a 25-year-old student at the University of Chicago, who heads the American branch. "Forms of copying, remixing, and sharing enhance the quality of life for all who have access to them. Attempts to hinder sharing are antithetical to our data-driven existence."

The Implications Of China Paying In Gold +

Dear CIGAs,
The implications of China paying for Iranian oil in gold is the most important event in the modern history of gold
1. It is reasonable to assume that China has been threatened with total or at least selective exclusion from the SWIFT system if it pays in any currency for Iranian oil.
2. Gold has been decided by China as the means of making payment for massive international purchases free of the SWIFT system.
3. Other Asian and Middle Eastern nations will now see the gold they hold as money free of Western economic interference.
4. Gold now is not only money free of liability, but also free from interference regarding settlement by the long arm of Western influence.
5. The SWIFT system is becoming ever more a weapon of Western international political will.
6. In case of war anywhere, it is now demonstrated for all to see that only gold will buy the materials required. Paper currencies are under the SWIFT system’s control in settlement.
