CYPRUS LEAKS: MoA signed without Parliamentary approval as Troikanauts give Cyprus the Greece treatment

Annexation in action as liberal democracy dies on the vine

The Slog: You may remember that there was supposed to be a vote in the Cypriot Parliament – an imminent vote, in fact – about whether the final MoA with the Troika was acceptable to that legislature. Dr Sch√§ubleliebe tried to weazel round that by saying it wasn’t necessary because of some guff or other he’d just come up with, but he was (for once) ignored.
cyprusdocPP But not much has happened since then. Or to be precise, nothing has happened at all. Today I’ve been handed this document by an Athens source:

It shows that both Cypriot bigwigs have signed this binding agreement…. without the Cyprus Assembly having seen it.
Ironically, Klaus Regling hasn’t. Also notable is this document which shows that that Troikanauts have learned absolutely zip-all from their brainless destruction of the Greek economy…or that they know exactly what they’re doing, and are getting better at it all the time.

Germany's Virtuous Circle Takeover Of Europe

Tyler Durden's picture German finance minister Schaeuble just explained, in a seeming effort to assuage rising fears that the one core nation left in Europe will choose the game-theoretically optimal first-defection wins strategy, that "Germany benefits from the Euro more than others." Indeed it does; as German firms are buying up strong competitors, clients or suppliers at a time when those companies are struggling to stay afloat through years of recession in their home markets and as shaky banks restrict access to credit. It appears that the slow-and-steady bloodless invasion of Europe can be summed up by the following virtuous circle of Germany's hidden strategy. Of course, as Schaeuble explained later in his missive, "it is nonsense" that Germany wants a German Europe and that the Euro exchange rates is "Okay" for Germany.

The Big Dirty Secret is Out: There is No Gold! - Jim Sinclair

big secretThe Doc: Legendary gold trader Jim Sinclair sent an email alert to subscribers last night, stating that the rig (gold manipulation) is up, and that the big dirty secret is out that there is no physical gold in volume
Sinclair states that the biggest moves on a percentage basis for gold and gold stocks has just begun, and provides a formula for profits in the gold sector here and now:
From Jim Sinclair:

Thanks to the revelation brought to the world regarding the paper gold fraud, certain gold shares will now advance by many hundred percents. Some are likely ten baggers like in the 1980s.
Good growing intermediate tier producing gold shares will lead gold majors, gold and all equities now to new highs in its own unprecedented bull market as the successful short of gold share hedge funds sitting with huge shorts have become complacent. There is a new definition to the right gold companies. They are the holders of the real physical supply.
The biggest move in gold shares in the 1968 to 1980 gold market was after gold broke from $887.50 to $449. The recovery from $449 to $750 witnessed the gold shares moving up by many hundreds of percents. The same is going to happen now because there is no significant above ground supply of gold. It has been stolen or purchased over the past many years.

The big dirty secret is out. There is no gold.

How to get the US economy going again

By Hugo Salinas Price: I am reading a great deal of alarming information regarding impending economic collapse in the US.
I feel sure that most of the predictions I read are based on facts, and ought to scare the living daylights out of all readers.
What I fail to see is an explanation of the causes of this terrible, atrocious situation in which the US economy finds itself.
Let me cut through all the dire warnings and offer readers a solution. However difficult it may be to get a solution in place, it is absolutely necessary to understand that there is a solution; if you want it badly enough, it is there waiting to be implemented.
In order to re-invigorate the US economy the following policy must be put in place:
The United States will only accept just as much imports from foreign countries, as foreign countries are willing to purchase from the US. (But the US will not resort to high Tariffs to restrict imports and protect local production.)
Question: Then you are saying, Mr. Salinas, that the US should not just import what it wants from foreign countries, and pay in dollars for those imports?
Answer: That is just what I am saying. Because, you see, if you pay in dollars, there is no need for local industries in the US. They are not needed – and in fact they have disappeared – because imports can be paid with dollars. What do you want: lots of Asian imports available at Walmart, but no jobs, and what jobs there are – at tattoo parlors and restaurants - paying miserable wages? Or do you want industries which will employ workers, pay higher wages and pay taxes to your government as well?

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

By Matt Taibbi: The Illuminati were amateurs. The second huge financial scandal of the year reveals the real international conspiracy: There's no price the big banks can't fix
Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world's largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything.
You may have heard of the Libor scandal, in which at least three – and perhaps as many as 16 – of the name-brand too-big-to-fail banks have been manipulating global interest rates, in the process messing around with the prices of upward of $500 trillion (that's trillion, with a "t") worth of financial instruments. When that sprawling con burst into public view last year, it was easily the biggest financial scandal in history – MIT professor Andrew Lo even said it "dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scam in the history of markets."

As the ClubMed rebellion spreads, keep your eye on Alavanos in Greece

alavanosWhy Alekos Alavanos could play a pivotal role in destroying the euro
Alavanos….rich Communist with a keen sense of timing
The Slog: The new Party formed three weeks ago by Alekos Alavanos represents a fascinating encapsulation of the Europe-wide movement against the idea of both a single currency, and German rigidity in applying fiscal discipline.
On April 4th this year, Alekos Alavanos launched his new ‘Plan B’ Party. Advocating that Greece should quit the euro and return to the drachma, in Greek political terms Mr Alavanos was ahead of the curve in doing this…but then over time, he has been exceptional in his ability to use foresight to advantage. Alth0ugh he led SYRIZA – the Leftist Party now headed by Alexis Tsipras – between 2004 and 2008, the self-confessed millionaire Communist had been almost dormant until recently. However, this year he has criticised the Party he used to lead, arguing that its goal of rejecting the terms of the EU-IMF bailout but remaining in the single currency was not credible. (See my post of April 18th).
Most of the West European MSM have given this mercurial politician a low profile, but he isn’t just another schismatic nutter. Although a man of the Left, Alavanos also has a commercial perspective: this has allegedly driven him to seek a patriotic alliance with other forces not just within Greek politics, but also within influential Athenians who know perfectly well that Brussels-am-Berlin’s rigid austerity is killing the Greek patient.

"All depositors are losers!" - No Bank Deposits Will Be Spared from Confiscation

By Matthias Chang: I challenge anyone to prove me wrong that confiscation of bank deposits is legalized daylight robbery
Bank depositors in the UK and USA may think that their bank deposits would not be confiscated as they are insured and no government would dare embark on such a drastic action to bail out insolvent banks.
Before I explain why confiscation of bank deposits in the UK and US is a certainty and absolutely legal, I need all readers of this article to do the following:
Ask your local police, sheriffs, lawyers, judges the following questions:
1) If I place my money with a lawyer as a stake-holder and he uses the money without my consent, has the lawyer committed a crime?
2) If I store a bushel of wheat or cotton in a warehouse and the owner of the warehouse sold my wheat/cotton without my consent or authority, has the warehouse owner committed a crime?
3) If I place monies with my broker (stock or commodity) and the broker uses my monies for other purposes and or contrary to my instructions, has the broker committed a crime?
I am confident that the answer to the above questions is a Yes!
However, for the purposes of this article, I would like to first highlight the situation of the deposit / storage of wheat with a warehouse owner in relation to the deposit of money / storage with a banker.
First, you will notice that all wheat is the same i.e. the wheat in one bushel is no different from the wheat in another bushel. Likewise with cotton, it is indistinguishable. The deposit of a bushel of wheat with the warehouse owner in law constitutes a bailment. Ownership of the bushel of wheat remains with you and there is no transfer of ownership at all to the warehouse owner.
And as stated above, if the owner sells the bushel of wheat without your consent or authority, he has committed a crime as well as having committed a civil wrong (a tort) of conversion – converting your property to his own use and he can be sued.

Child Hunger Is Exploding In Greece - And 14 Signs That It Is Starting To Happen In America Too

ChildBy Michael Snyder: The world is heading into a horrific economic nightmare, and an inordinate amount of the suffering is going to fall on innocent children.  If you want to get an idea of what America is going to look like in the not too distant future, just check out what is happening in Greece.  At this point, Greece is experiencing a full-blown economic depression.  As I have written about previously, the unemployment rate in Greece has now risen to 27 percent, which is much higher than the peak unemployment rate that the U.S. economy experienced during the Great Depression of the 1930s.  And as you will read about below, child hunger is absolutely exploding in Greece right now.  Some families are literally trying to survive on pasta and ketchup.  But don't think for a moment that it can't happen here.  Sadly, the truth is that child hunger is already rising very rapidly in our poverty-stricken cities.  Never before have we had so many Americans unable to take care of themselves.  Food stamp enrollment and child homelessness have soared to brand new all-time records, and there are actually thousands of Americans that are so poor that they live in tunnels underneath our cities.  But for millions of other Americans, the suffering is not quite so dramatic.  Instead, they just watch their hopes and their dreams slowly slip away as they struggle to find a way to make it from month to month.  There are millions of parents that lead lives that are filled with constant stress and anxiety as they try to figure out how to provide the basics for their children.  How do you tell a child that you can't give them any dinner even though you have been trying as hard as you can?  What many families go through on a regular basis is absolutely heartbreaking.

Why We Must Crash & Burn - The Market & Cycles

By Martin Armstrong: One Response regarding this problem that we must crash and burn states that this “is somewhat of a paradox though, see some people, not so conflicted by their personal conscience (against obedience to authority / control ), but influenced by their uncertainty and/or lack of confidence. obviously, not all people are the same. Guess for the higher circumscribed step, to a world Government, should always pass through crash and burn stages, as history dictates, can never take the step smoothly:) ?
ANSWER: This is what makes cycles function. (1) there is the overall cycle of the economy such as the ECM, (2) then there are the cycles of individual markets that each has its own unique frequency like DNA, and finally (3) each of us has a personal cycle of life through which we pass, mature, and hopefully learn from our mistakes.
We all have our individual cycle of life, experience, and knowledge. We buy the high and sell the low in our youth. As we grow older, we realize we have been there, done that. Wisdom emerges and we then sell the high and buy the low. Not everyone is in the same position or place within the cycle. This is what makes the world tick.
This is why we are facing a MAJOR economic upheaval.
