Indoctrinate U.; Marxism on Campus

plasmalung: Indoctrinate U is an incredibly illuminating look into the active and open attack on free speech and open discourse on college campuses across the United States. This is an excellent film, but addresses a topic that's terribly sad. The University was established as an institution that encouraged open discourse and the free exchange of ideas in the name of furthering knowledge and understanding but it has become nothing more than an indoctrination center.

Indian Temples Fight Back Against Bankster Gold Grabbing Plot

By Michael Krieger: The following article from Reuters is a follow up to a topic I have explored on various occasions in the past. Namely, how an inept Indian government is attempting to use the age old tactic of scapegoating in order to deflect attention away from its widespread policy failures. In the case of India, the target is gold. It’s a logical target for any crony Indian bureaucrat or Central Banker to go after. Wealth confiscation is a tried and true method historically used by corrupt elites to stay in power, and there is plenty of gold floating around the subcontinent. Easy pickings…or so they thought.
It appears some of the temples are now drawing a line in the sand, and are in fact refusing to provide details about their holdings. Other temples are a bit more compliant. From Reuters:
The central banksters, who have already taken steps that have slowed to a trickle the incoming supplies that have exacerbated India’s current account deficit, have sent letters to some of the country’s richest temples asking for details of their gold.

goldawnyobsGolden Dawn….yobs, but in this case, victims
The Slog: The weird thing about aiming to tell the truth is that you can end up defending some truly awful people. But just as not all disabled people are paragons of virtue, so too not all gargoyles are guilty or ghastly all the time. Hitler, for example, was unfailingly polite to women and always stood up when they came into his presence. His military service in the First World War was exemplary when it came to courage. Having fathered a child by a French woman during a leave from action, after the War and throughout his career he both protected and subsidised the pair.
Golden Dawn members, in my view, tend to wear out carpets very quickly on account of the knuckle marks they leave when perambulating. But as C P Snow remarked, “Facts are sacred”.

Two Slices Of Bad Pizza

By Trade with Dave: Who is coming with me?” asks Karl Denninger.
Looks like Karl Denninger is getting his “Jerry Maguire” on, growing a conscious and heading to the gulch. Is this what happens when you write one too many large payable to the IRS. In Karl’s own words… I’m done.”

S&P Threatens To Cut US Debt To Junk + Bubble Trouble: Record Junk Bond Issuance, A Barrage Of IPOs, “Out Of Whack” Valuations, And Grim Earnings Growth

This sort of political brinkmanship is the dominant reason the rating is no longer ‘AAA’” – S&P ratings agency in a research note.
By Wolf Richter: S&P, a unit of McGraw Hill Financial, is already famous for having had the balls to strip the US of its AAA sovereign credit rating in 2011 when the debt-ceiling fight in Washington – an inexplicable charade for observers overseas – turned from silly grandstanding to utter brinkmanship, fired on by convoluted political brainstorms and upcoming primary elections.
In retaliation, or so S&P claimed, and to teach all ratings agencies a lesson they’d hopefully never forget, the Department of Justice has put S&P through the wringer and in February sued it – deservedly – over its role in the financial crisis, i.e. for allegedly misleading financial institutions about the validity of its ratings. AAA-rated mortgage-backed securities as the underlying mortgages were already defaulting? No problem. The DOJ accused S&P of, among other things, having inflated ratings to pocket fatter fees from issuers.

Government Shutdown: The Next Step In The Collapse Of The Dollar

By Brandon Smith: There is a considerable amount of debate in alternative economic circles as to whether a federal government shutdown would be a “good thing” or a “bad thing”.  Frankly, even I am partially conflicted.  I love to read mainstream news stories about how a shutdown in the capital would be “horrible” because Barack 'baby bomber' Obama might have to reduce the White House cleaning staff and wash his own laundry:
