Germany's Humiliating Takedown Of The Coopted, Corrupt, Complicit, Corporate US Media

Snowden Backlash: US Media Get Personal - As the main lame-stream American press goes after NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, the leakers' revelations are becoming an afterthought.
By Marc Pitzke: Walter Pincus, 80, knows his way around a scandal. The columnist and former reporter at the Washington Post has written about Watergate and the Iran-Contra scandal, numerous intelligence-related affairs and has won the Pulitzer Prize. But he has been criticized, even by his colleagues, for being too close to the US government -- especially the CIA, for which he spied in his younger years. 

But now, Pincus has truly embarrassed himself: Last week the Washington Post had to add a three-paragraph-long correction to a two-day-old Pincus column, invalidating its core claims. This was an unprecedented measure in the 136-year history of the American capital's most lauded newspaper.

Major coups plotted by Britain - UK racism on the rise

In this review he skirts over the dire economic situation facing British fiat Ponzi capitalism.

On the ground in Cyprus: Capital controls still in effect

By : Nicosia, Cyprus - It’s been said that goldfish have the shortest memory of any animal– only about three seconds.
But a few years ago, scientists from Israel’s Technion Institute of Technology conducted an experiment which put to rest this erroneous myth.
July 12, 2013 Nicosia, Cyprus Based on their research, it turns out that goldfish have a memory closer to FIVE months… which seems to be quite a bit longer than most fund managers, bankers, and politicians.
I say this because it wasn’t even FOUR months ago that banks in this country forcibly locked people out of their bank accounts.
This single event, perhaps more than anything else, highlighted the rot within Europe: a bankrupt government was being compelled by supranational powers to bail out an insolvent banking system at depositor expense.
Of course, this move was quickly followed by capital controls, which are still in place today. Yet based on this summer’s financial euphoria, it’s as if none of this ever happened.

Cash for gold is a bad deal, warns broker

DBP: Consumers are losing up to 80 per cent of their jewellery’s potential value by selling it for cash to gold firms, the broker and precious metals specialist Goldcore has warned.
A survey of cash for gold firms operating in Ireland, found that consumers are losing 15 per cent of the value of their gold when they sell their gold to get euros.
When the mark-up charged by jewellery retailers is also factored in, this figure rises to approximately 80 per cent.
Thus a ring originally bought for €1,000 will have a gold value of €250 but return only €212.50 for a seller.
The survey was carried out by Dublin-based Goldcore.
“Consumers need to be careful when selling their gold jewellery for euros,” says Mark O’Byrne, Research Director of Goldcore. “While it may seem an attractive proposition in the short-term due to the current economic environment, when you factor in the original purchase price, you can see that Irish consumers are getting a very bad deal overall."

UK Chancellor makes one detail pay well, while ignoring the badly composed Big Picture

As Osborne tinkers with the canvas, 
the MSM props up his easel
Osborne…staying long in emergency generators
The Slog: Years of Thatcherite sell-offs, fluffy New Labour propellerthink and nuclear generation muddle have left Britain, as in most things, with a woefully inadequate electricity generation infrastructure. And into this mess, George Osborne has injected his usual form of Titanic deckchair rearrangement.
Because our ‘leaders’ have had to secretly resort to a hotch-potch of emergency generators for public buildings, hospitals and so on, the Government is set to make a windfall profit of hundreds of millions of pounds out of a lucrative scam. This will sell power from thousands of the emergency diesel generators it owns to the National Grid. The cash will come from using them to guard against the times when the wind is too low to drive the expanding fleet of wind turbines, so staving off widespread blackouts.
Public buildings, including NHS hospitals, prisons, Army barracks and RAF bases, police and fire headquarters, schools and council offices equipped with emergency generators are to be asked to make them available on 20-minute standby to back-up the grid when supply is short. For this, they will be paid premium rates, soon to rise to the equivalent of £600 per Megawatt hour (MWh) of electricity produced.

France celebrates Bastile Day whilst extending its colonialism in Africa!?

Who Is Racist? + After The Verdict: George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin

By Thomas Sowell: I am so old that I can remember when most of the people promoting race hate were white.
Apparently other Americans also recognize that the sources of racism are different today from what they were in the past. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 31 percent of blacks think that most blacks are racists, while 24 percent of blacks think that most whites are racist.
The difference between these percentages is not great, but it is remarkable nevertheless. After all, generations of blacks fought the white racism from which they suffered for so long. If many blacks themselves now think that most other blacks are racist, that is startling.
The moral claims advanced by generations of black leaders — claims that eventually touched the conscience of the nation and turned the tide toward civil rights for all — have now been cheapened by today’s generation of black “leaders,” who act as if it is all just a matter of whose ox is gored.
Even in legal cases involving terrible crimes — the O.J. Simpson murder trial or the charges of gang rape against Duke University students — many black “leaders” and their followers have not waited for facts about who was guilty and who was not, but have immediately taken sides, based on who was black and who was white.

"Why Did God Make Devil?" + "The Lie and The Liar Must Be Exposed"

The Banksters Have Blood on Their Hands

ChrisMartenson: We invited Bill Black to return to explain whether the level of systemic risk due to fraud in our financial markets has improved or worsened since the dire situation he painted for us in early 2012. Sadly, it looks like abuse by the big players has only flourished since then.

MGTOW: The Time for Pretence is Over

Stardusk: "Until we drop this collective pretense that women are our natural partners, that they wish well on us, as well as the pretense that feminism is anything but weaponized female nature, things will continue to become worse. More boys will be lost in the school system, ending with more men lost in life. ...We need to stop being afraid, for what we do or say will never have the rubber stamp of the masses, it's part of what it means to go your own way. Every day that passes without acknowledging this truth, without acknowledging what must be acknowledged, is a day that further contributes to our destruction. The time for pretense is over."
