“Senior cleric Dr Mohammed Saeed Ramadan al-Bouti was martyred in a terrorist suicide attack at the Iman Mosque in Mazraa in Damascus," Syrian State TV said.
Syria's SANA news agency reports that the scholar's grandson was also killed in the bombing.

THEFT FROM DEPOSITORS: Now Frankfurt calls for Italy to be plundered. + CYPRUS: Brussels v Moscow – threats, lies and doubts on all sides

In the light of the Cyprus heist, the UK, US, and Spain are considering depositor 'haircuts' too. Ze Germans have this in mind for everyone.

The Slog: Apologies for this, but WordPress has managed to swallow up an earlier post I made. Instead, it posted something in draft, and trashed the other one.
So herewith a summary plus update.
The Spanish finance Minister has floated the idea of a 0.2% depositor levy there. The Bank of England and the FIDC have issued a joint paper suggesting something similar, only bigger, in the event of an emergency in the UK or US.
Clearly, the idea of embezzling depositor funds is catching on. But Germany – who else? – is taking things a step further by suggesting that somebody else’s depositors be raped.

Cyprus Grandmother receives valuable advice from Russian economist grandson

By An elderly resident of Pathos in Cyprus has been doing something odd for the past few weeks.  Every Friday she goes to the bank and withdraws all of her money, then returns it on Monday.  When asked why she gave the following statement to bank employees:

My son is an economist in Russia and he has been telling me, if something happens with the Cypriot banks, it will happened on the weekend. He told me to withdraw the money every Friday.”
She was laughed at by the bank employees, but now unlike most of the country she has access to her money while the banks in Cyprus stay closed until at least Tuesday of next week.  While the Cypriot legislature did not pass a bill that would have taken between 6.75% and 10% of bank deposits, who knows what desperate politicians will do now to get their fix of financial aid from the IMF.  At least one person won’t be affected, thanks to a caring grandson.

Pictures From A Cyprus ATM Line + ECB Regime Gives Cyprus March 25 Liquidity Ultimatum + Euro Regime Official On Cyprus: "Markets Believe We Will Find A Solution, This Might Not Be The Case"

Tyler Durden's picture For a few days, the people of Cyprus were calm, quietly and orderly accepting the unreality of the levy being imposed upon them - incredulous that it was even possible. As we reach the 4th day of bank closures, amid rolling rumors and ECB threats, it appears the people have reached a tipping point as this series of images from Cyprus ATM lines indicates - the bank-jog has arrived. When will it become a full blown sprint?

It appears the catalyst for this latest move is the ECB threat and EU concerns over the future of the two biggest insolvent banks: As AFP reports:  EU calls on Cyprus to set capital controls and merge 2 biggest banks Laiki and Bank of Cyprus.

The Carlyle Group, the Bush family and 9/11

Press TV: The Carlyle group is one of America's ten biggest military contracting firms. This firm specializes in what they call 'crony capitalism'. That means they make money by gaining access to the world's leading decision-makers.

The Carlyle group was founded in the late 80s by a fellow named Rubenstein. It is a highly influential multi-sector group, mostly defense related companies and corporations. In the 90s, it started bringing on board the Bush family and their good friends the Bin Laden family. The two families became the key members of their board. The Group stands accused of involvement in and benefiting from 9/11 attacks.

Exter’s Pyramid

The Paper Empire: I find John Exter’s upside down debt period to be an extremely useful model for developing a visual understanding of the monetary system and economic cycles.
In order to make use of it though, we must first make the distinction between real wealth and claims on wealth. Real wealth is represented by actual items that people want or need. This can be food, land, natural resources, buildings, factories etc. Financial assets, shown as layers in the pyramid, represent claims on real wealth. In a fully developed financial system, in good perceived standing, there is a high ratio of claims on wealth to actual underlying real wealth. In this environment the average buying power of the financial assets is lower. This can best be observed by looking at the purchasing power at the bottom of the pyramid. Gold is at a minimum here. It is competing with all of the other claims on wealth for a relatively constant amount of underlying real assets.
According to Exters theory of money, when economies get into trouble through the accumulation of too much debt, the levels of the pyramid disappear in order from highest to lowest. As the pyramid contracts downward, the remaining layers represent a proportionally higher claim on the real underlying wealth. In other words their value increases. Using gold as our reference point, it’s relative purchasing power increases as the pyramid contracts. Gold finds itself in a secular bull market.
In the extreme hypothetical case where all other assest classes are destroyed, including the currency itself, only gold remains.

Time To Bradley-Manning The Banksters!

By Jim Kirwan: The global-clock of deadlines is coming tomorrow. Even at this late hour the world is still taking serious notice of real options that have previously not even been considered. Banks & Governments have become the hugely-bloated pigs that sit at the center of every financial and legal problem facing virtually every country in the world right-now.

A bank is first of all a bank, and nothing more. Greed has led many countries to allow banks to enter into every conceivable scam, to illegally “profit” from institutions that are essentially criminal in nature. All that the world has to do is follow the international-example set by Iceland and we can all begin to free-ourselves of everything that is financially-threatening every man woman and child on the earth.” (1)

What is finally being ‘looked-at’ are the essential-governmental-structures in every country. Most have too many banks and too much government.
This diet of monetary junk-food created overweight-criminal-organizations along with private-corporatized-interests, which are supported by mercenary-armies. This insures that the world will supposedly stay on the wrong-course which will take us all back to the time before the wheel was even invented.

Iraq: 10 Years of US Regime and Lame Stream Media Lies + Darrin McBreen & Aaron Dykes

AJ: Ten years ago the Bush regime invaded Iraq. It is known that the justification for the invasion was a packet of lies orchestrated by the neoconservative Bush regime in order to deceive the United Nations and the American people.

The US Secretary of State at that time, General Colin Powell, has expressed his regrets that he was used by the Bush regime to deceive the United Nations with fake intelligence that the Bush and Blair regimes knew to be fake. But the despicable presstitute media has not apologized to the American people for serving the corrupt Bush regime as its Ministry of Propaganda and Lies.
