War crime! Gaddafi, son & dozens of loyalists executed by NATO rebels

NATO's Libyan rebels executed 67 Gaddafi fighters and Gaddafi himself a year ago - that's according to a new report by Human Rights Watch (and live footage seen by the rest of us). Those loyal to Gaddafi  were also abused and murdered. The findings also show the very same murderous militias still play a major role in Libyan politics.

Germany 4.0 shocks unsuspecting EU sheeple with fiscal overlord demand

Germany has stated its exorbitant price for keeping Greece in the euro and agreeing to mass bond purchases by the European Central Bank.
By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard: There must be an EU “currency commissioner” with sweeping powers to strike down national budgets; a “large step towards fiscal union”; and yet another EU treaty.
Finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble dropped his bombshell in talks with German journalists on a flight from Asia, and apparently had the blessing of Angela Merkel, the chancellor. “When I put forward such proposals, you can take it as a given that the chancellor agrees,” he said.
Officials in Brussels reacted with horror. “If that is the demand, they are not going to get it. Nobody in the Council wants a new treaty right now,” said one EU diplomat.
“We’ve got the fiscal compact and quite enough fiscal discipline. Not even the Dutch want a commissioner telling them how to tax and spend,” he said.
The new demands risk another stormy summit in Brussels on Thursday, pitting Germany against the Latin bloc. The last summit in June ended with an acrimonious deal in the small hours on a banking union that began to unravel within days. 
Mr Schaeuble said the currency chief should have powers similar to those of the EU’s competition commissioner, a manfeared around the world”.

America’s Schools: Breeding Grounds for Compliant Citizens

photoBy John W. Whitehead - Rutherford Institute:
[P]ublic school reform is now justified in the dehumanizing language of national security, which increasingly legitimates the transformation of schools into adjuncts of the surveillance and police state… students are increasingly subjected to disciplinary apparatuses which limit their capacity for critical thinking, mold them into consumers, test them into submission, strip them of any sense of social responsibility and convince large numbers of poor minority students that they are better off under the jurisdiction of the criminal justice system than by being valued members of the public schools.”—Professor Henry Giroux
For those hoping to better understand how and why we arrived at this dismal point in our nation’s history, where individual freedoms, privacy and human dignity have been sacrificed to the gods of security, expediency and corpocracy, look no farther than America’s public schools.
Once looked to as the starting place for imparting principles of freedom and democracy to future generations, America’s classrooms are becoming little more than breeding grounds for compliant citizens.
The moment young people walk into school, they increasingly find themselves under constant surveillance: they are photographed, fingerprinted, scanned, x-rayed, sniffed and snooped on.
Between metal detectors at the entrances, drug-sniffing dogs in the hallways and surveillance cameras in the classrooms and elsewhere, many of America’s schools look more like prisons than learning facilities.
Add to this the epidemic of arresting schoolchildren and treating them as if they are dangerous criminals, and you have the makings of a perfect citizenry for our emerging police state—one that can be easily cowed, controlled, and directed.

Project Censored: The Top 10 Stories Under-Reported by the Mainstream Media

Michael Krieger: Published as the cover story in my local paper the Boulder Weekly, Project Censored offers the Top 10 Stories Under-Reported by the Mainstream Media.  I love the cover.

Now here is the list with some brief highlights:
1. Signs of an emerging police state
President George W. Bush is remembered largely for his role in curbing civil liberties in the name of his “war on terror.” But it’s President Obama who signed the 2012 NDAA, including its clause allowing for indefinite detention without trial for terrorism suspects.

2. Oceans in peril
3. U.S. deaths from Fukushima
On March 24, 2011, the task of collecting nuclear data had been handed off from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to the Nuclear Energy Institute, a nuclear industry lobbying group. And in one study that got little attention, scientists Joseph Mangano and Jeanette Sherman found that in the period following the Fukushima meltdowns, 14,000 more deaths than average were reported in the U.S., mostly among infants. Later, Mangono and Sherman updated the number to 22,000.

4. FBI agents responsible for terrorist plots
In 243 of these cases, an informant was involved; in 49 cases, an informant actually led the plot. And “with three exceptions, all of the high-profile domestic terror plots of the last decade were actually FBI stings.”

5. Federal Reserve loaned trillions to major banks

Letter to Hugo Salinas-Price: Forget a Silver Backed Currency, Mexico’s Got To Bring Its Gold Reserves Home

venezuelagoldBy sv: Last year the Bank of Mexico did not reveal the location of its gold reserves for national security purposes.  This came after it purchased 93 tonnes of gold. The Federal Transparency Law in Mexico, however, has forced Banxico to state the amount of its gold holdings as well as the names of its custodians and the locations of where its gold holdings are held.  The bank refused time-and-time again to release the information, but has been compelled to do so by the “Department of Management for Rules Control.”
Banxico claimed that revealing the location of its gold would “harm the financial, economic or monetary stability of the country.” Here are some of the facts regarding the disclosure:
  •    “At month’s end, April 2012, Banco de Mexico maintained a position in fine gold of 4,034,802 ounces, of which only 194,539 ounces are located in the territory of the United Mexican States.”  
  •  Banxico “has been informed and knows the specific location of the gold position that forms part of its reserve of International assets”
  • The countries where these reserves are located are “United States of America, England and Mexico.”  And also, “the acquisitions of gold during March and April 2012 are under custody in England”.
  • And besides, it is precisely there in “the city of London, England, where more than 99% of the  gold which the Bank of Mexico maintains outside the country is presently under custody…”
 Of Mexico’s gold:
94.23% are stored in London, BoE

4.82% are stored in Mexico

and 1% is stored in the NY Fed

EU regulators: Google privacy policy has legal ‘irregularities’ and may not be ‘in compliance’ with law

By Madison Ruppert: The new Google privacy policy, which was updated earlier this year, is now coming under fire from regulators in the European Union.
U.S. Senator Charles Schumer previously called for an investigation into this privacy policy to be carried out by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) although any such investigation would be questionable at best.
Seeing as Google has such a tight relationship with the United States government and was cleared of wrongdoing by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) related to their spying on Americans, any investigation carried out by an American government entity would likely be laughable.
However, the European Union’s data protection and privacy regulators have stepped up to the plate, challenging the legality of the new integrated Google privacy policy.
The French Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertes (CNIL) was tasked with the investigation. Representatives of CNIL noted in a press conference that users are forced to agree to Google’s new privacy policy while users should be given the choice to opt-out of the policy.
Of course Google’s response to such challenges is, essentially, that users can simply opt out of using their services entirely if they have a problem with their new policies.
The CNIL representatives said that the new Google privacy policy has legal “irregularities” and indeed may not actually be “in compliance” with EU law.

China And The Recipe For $12,000 Gold + Hyperinflation in America: When a Loaf of Bread is $3 Billion

Addison Wiggin Addison Wiggin: Gold has steadily advanced over the last 60 days from $1,600 to this morning’s $1,742. The IAU and GLD have been off to the races.  Which is making some people a little nervous. For instance: “Can you comment,” a reader asks, “on what you think might happen to the price of gold if Romney gets elected?”  I’ll tackle that question today in the course of examining some longer-term trends that will prove immune to whatever happens [checking the calendar] 25 days from now [thank God].
One of the most respected gold fund managers sees gold reaching for a new high inside the next 12 months. In his latest shareholder letter, Tocqueville Gold Fund chieftain John Hathaway bases that forecast on continued negative real interest rates: That is, as long as central banks push interest rates below the rate of inflation, gold performs well.
“Some suggest,” Hathaway writes by way of answering the reader’s question, “that a Republican victory in November would be a game changer for gold. It could bring about the dismissal of Bernanke, the taming of fiscal deficits, the painless elimination of excess liquidity from bloated central bank balance sheets and the restoration of robust economic growth.” [Pausing while your editor guffaws…]
“All of this,” Mr. Hathaway goes on, “would need to occur within the four years allotted to a new administration while voters patiently awaited the magic to take effect. While this rosy scenario is possible, we believe it would be a long shot.
“Therefore, we regard any possible pre-election weakness in gold and mining stocks based on such a possibility as a buying opportunity.”

Why The Nobel Peace Prize For The EU Is So Flawed

Raúl Ilargi Meijer: While everybody was asleep in a grandiose globalization and unification dream, a dream whose benefits and desirability were - and still are - hardly ever questioned if at all, separate languages and cultures simply remained what they were: separate. Now that globalization starts to show its dark and ugly flipside of economic depression, a repeal of many unifications and a split-up of larger entities, created for economic and political reasons only, into their smaller components, is inevitable.
Unfortunately, the architects who designed and built the larger entities are still in power. And they - which is probably also inevitable - go for double or nothing. That is a real and present danger for Europe, where Europeanization or even Germanification are the prescription du jour for the poor southern Club Med countries and everyone else, but the ultimate diagnosis will be the Club-medification (or Club-medication?!) of the people in the richer north. And that will lead to trouble. Lots of it.
The idea behind the EU, which can be summarized as peace and cooperation in Europe, was good in essence, and it worked for a pretty long time too, though how much of that was due to strong economic growth all over deserves more attention than it gets. The problem with the EU is the ever stronger centralization push that has developed from the much simpler roots that got the project started in the 1950s. The eurocrisis reinforces this push, which at the same time clashes with its direct opposite: a desire for decentralization on the ground.
