‘Total Surveillance’ Officially Brushed Off In Germany

George Orwell is nothing by comparison.”
Wolf Richter: German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her coalition are likely to emerge victoriously from the elections on September 22 – unless a major debacle blows up the equation. So all debacles have been deferred until after the election. The Eurozone debt crisis, Greece or Cyprus, collapsing banks and bailouts, whatever might happen in Italy or Spain, ECB shenanigans – no debacle is allowed to occur until after the election. But just then, over the weekend, a major debacle did happen.
The Spiegel, the largest magazine in Germany, had been able to “see and analyze” some of the documents Edward Snowden had purloined from the NSA. And now the whole world knows that the US intelligence community treated Germany, along with the European Union, France, and other countries, like Cold-War opponents.
Even French President François Hollande tried to slam his fist on the table when he said too softly into the uproar ensuing to his right and left, we demand that this stop immediately.”

DAILY TELEGRAPH: "A propaganda sheet of complete ovaries read by people with brains no bigger than their ovaries"

The Slog: Once upon a time not that long ago, the Executive Editor of the Daily Mail Paul ‘Insane’ Dacre allegedly told quite a large number of his disgusting hacks that their services weren’t required any more. Their nickname in the Street of Shame became ‘The Boat People’, as one by one they walked the plank, only to be rescued by two fat tax exiles allegedly ‘living’ in the No Man’s Land between Britain and France.
People better informed than me have suggested scurrilously that the Boat People were hounded out by Dacre the Mad because they were routinely hacking the mobile phones of the rich, famous and powerful after the style of Newscorpers. I couldn’t possibly comment.
One of the former Daily Mail staffers, 49 years old going on 12 Tony Gallagher became the editor of the Daily Telegraph. And as more of his cronies joined this merry band of outlaws, what had once been a reactionary but decent newspaper plummeted downmarket to become the pro-Psycho economics rag we see before us today.
It has become, I’m afraid, a propaganda sheet of complete bollocks read by people with brains no bigger than their bollocks.

What Mark Carney should do and why he won't do it

By Max Keiser: Mark Carney, the former head of Bank of Canada will, I predict, in his new role as Governor of the Bank of England, double down on Quantitative Easing and buy more UK Gilts (government bonds) than any previous Bank of England chief.
The reason this former Goldman Sachs guy (yes, another one) heading up a central bank will give - is the same reason Ben Bernanke gives - and the Bank of Japan, etc. He’ll say the bank needs to fight ‘deflation.’ And he will also fail to admit that central bank purchasing of government bonds doesn’t fight deflation, it causes deflation.
How Central Bank purchases of government bonds cause deflation.
Bond purchases by central banks to cheapen rates makes funding additional bond issuance by corporations, banks and governments cheap. Look, the UK’s debt continues to climb; so too in America, Japan and Europe. Quantitative Easing (QE) programs have coincided with governments and banks increasing their debt loads to record amounts and debts of course have to be ‘serviced.’ That is to say, the interest payments that are due every quarter have to be paid, on an ever increasing debt pile; and the way this mounting interest cost, (now approaching 25% of government expenses in the aforementioned economies), is paid is to float more debt: made possible by the cheap interest rates guaranteed by the actions of the central banks and their Quantitative Easing programs.

US Prisoner Industrial Gulag (PIG): If You Like The Surveillance State, You’ll Love E-Verify

By Ron Paul: From massive NSA spying, to IRS targeting of the administration's political opponents, to collection and sharing of our health care information as part of Obamacare, it seems every day we learn of another assault on our privacy. Sadly, this week the Senate took another significant, if little-noticed, step toward creating an authoritarian surveillance state. Buried in the immigration bill is a national identification system called mandatory E-Verify.
The Senate did not spend much time discussing E-Verify, and what little discussion took place was mostly bipartisan praise for its effectiveness as a tool for preventing illegal immigrants from obtaining employment. It is a tragedy that mandatory E-Verify is not receiving more attention, as it will impact nearly every American’s privacy and liberty.
The mandatory E-Verify system requires Americans to carry a “tamper-proof” social security card. Before they can legally begin a job, American citizens will have to show the card to their prospective employer, who will then have to verify their identity and eligibility to hold a job in the US by running the information through the newly-created federal E-Verify database.

Perfect Statement from Edward Snowden in Moscow - Via WikiLeaks

One week ago I left Hong Kong after it became clear that my freedom and safety were under threat for revealing the truth. My continued liberty has been owed to the efforts of friends new and old, family, and others who I have never met and probably never will. I trusted them with my life and they returned that trust with a faith in me for which I will always be thankful.
On Thursday, President Obama declared before the world that he would not permit any diplomatic "wheeling and dealing" over my case. Yet now it is being reported that after promising not to do so, the President ordered his Vice President to pressure the leaders of nations from which I have requested protection to deny my asylum petitions.
This kind of deception from a world leader is not justice, and neither is the extralegal penalty of exile. These are the old, bad tools of political aggression. Their purpose is to frighten, not me, but those who would come after me.
For decades the United States of America has been one of the strongest defenders of the human right to seek asylum. Sadly, this right, laid out and voted for by the U.S. in Article 14 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, is now being rejected by the current government of my country. The Obama administration has now adopted the strategy of using citizenship as a weapon.
