And on Barclays , this SMUG HASBEEN PARASITE PUPPET should be stripped of all assets , given 1 weeks rations and set sail in the atlantic ocean in a rowing boat , banned from this land , and then his bosses should be hunted down with him........... ala the "witchmaster general" notorious evil scenario updated for modern times to the righteous act of justice requiring a "bankingparasite master general"


Barclays’ bosses are to put pressure on Bob Diamond, the bank’s chief executive who last week stepped down over the Libor rate-fixing scandal, not to accept his full pay-off worth up to £17 million.
The bank fears that a vast “golden parachute” payment could be a public relations disaster and enrage the company’s shareholders.
Senior Barclays figures have already met the Association of British Insurers, a City group which represents investors, to discuss plans to reduce Mr Diamond’s exit package.
Barclays will be desperate to avoid the public fury that surrounded the pay-off and pension of Sir Fred Goodwin, the disgraced former chief executive of Royal Bank of Scotland.
However, it is understood that Barclays’ directors will have to tread carefully. There are robust legal agreements that lay down exactly what Mr Diamond is entitled to.
Barclays is one of several banks accused of manipulating Libor, the standard rate banks use to lend to one another, in an attempt to boost profits of traders and exaggerate their strength. The rate influences borrowing costs for millions of consumers and businesses.
The Financial Services Authority and US regulatory authorities recently fined Barclays £290 million. Further fines are expected for other banks.
The Sunday Telegraph has also learned MPs probing the scandal want to question Baroness Vadera, the former Labour minister and close ally of Gordon Brown.
Members of the Treasury select committee now see the economist and investment banker as “more of a priority” than Ed Balls, the shadow chancellor. “She was there at the department at the time — Ed [Balls] was not,” a member of the committee said of the Baroness.
“I think we know she is a woman with a reputation for getting want she wants. There are many people to call but she is towards the very top of that list.”
Baroness Vadera was considered the woman in government Mr Brown trusted more than any other.
A spokesman for Baroness Vadera, who served as a small-business and international development minister, said this weekend that she had not yet been asked to appear as a witness before the Treasury Select Committee.
“Shriti Vadera has never discussed the price setting of Libor with any bank at any time in any form of communication,” he said. “She has never had any inappropriate discussions on Libor with anyone at all.”
It is unclear when Lady Vadera may face the committee, which could hold a number of more hearings before parliament’s summer recess begins on July 17.
Lady Vadera was invloved in a note written by investment bank UBS for the Treasury in 2008 headed “Reducing Libor”. The peer has made it clear that it was a clear policy position widely supported across the political spectru. A legitimate reduction in Libor would have meant cheaper lending to businesses.
George Osborne, the Chancellor, cited the note in a fiery commons debate on the Libor scandal last week, and said it put pressure on Lady Vadera and other Labour figures to explain their role at a time when Barclays had deliberately understated submissions to the Libor setting mechanism in a bid to make itself look stronger.
“The access of credit at an appropriate price during the financial crisis and even now was a concern of the previous government,” Lady Vadera said last week. “That is not the same thing as somebody manipulating something in the market inappropriately.”
Tomorrow the committee is to interview Paul Tucker, the Bank of England deputy governor, after Barclays published documents that said that “senior Whitehall figures” had been asking about the bank’s Libor estimates and suggested that the bank’s submissions did not need to be as high as they appeared.

A senior Whitehall source said: “We are not expecting much fireworks from Tucker’s hearing – it is though he has a pretty clear explanation for what he did.”
The following day the committee will interview Marcus Agius, the Barclays chairman, who resigned last weekend, but will now remain in boost until the bank appoints a new chief executive.
This week the Government will start to set up the joint parliamentary committee which will investigate the Libor scandal.
One senior Whitehall source said that establishing the committee is proving “extremely difficult”. “Everybody seems to think they should be on it,” the official said. “There are disagreements about its scope and it remit, what the split between MPs and peers should be – everything.”
The joint committee is to be led by Andrew Tyrie, a respected Conservative MP who currently chairs the Treasury Select Committee. His report is expected to be published by the end of the year.


In the Recent London Riots, a person was given a jail sentence for stealing a bottle of water Shocked and yet the uk government have just released a statement saying theres nothing they can do to this parasite (their secret friend and business associate) and to hear this smug hasbeen on audio trying to make excuses for himself is nauseating

And these parliamentary committee inquires are a complete extended smokescreen which allows the issue to simmer out of public care in a quagmire of this and thats , maybes and not maybes lasting months and costing a fortune and in the end no justice is carried out on these scavengers as it would be to the commoner

AND NOT FORGETTING THE FEMALE INFLUENCE - WHO IS THIS BARONESS VADERA ....a spawn of idi amin ?

She was born in Uganda in 1962 into a family of Indian origin.
She is from a family who owned a small tea plantation but fled to India in 1972 following the Ugandan government's expulsion of Ugandan Asians, and then later to the UK.She was educated at Northwood College before taking a degree in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Somerville College, Oxford.
THE OBLIGATORY PPE CONDITIONING FOR AGENT VADERA Very Happy

Private sector career
For over 14 years Vadera was employed at investment bank UBS Warburg, where her work included advising governments of developing countries, and debt relief and restructuring. She also played a role in the partial privatisation of South African Telecom
THE VELVET TONGUE OF THE WOLF

Government adviser and minister

Following his appointment as Prime Minister in June 2007, Gordon Brown appointed her as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State in the Department for International Development.[5] As she was not a member of either of the Houses of Parliament, she was created a life peer on 11 July 2007 as Baroness Vadera, of Holland Park in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea[6] The Sunday Times reported that the Cabinet Secretary "flatly refus[ed] to allow her to cross the threshold of No 10 as policy enforcer" and "no Permanent Secretary could stand her" - although the Cabinet Secretary denied making these comments.
Following criticism of her working style, Stephen Alambritis, of the Federation of Small Businesses, said: “If the Civil Service is complaining about her, then probably more ministers should be like her; she gets things done.”
After six months as a Minister in International Development, she was moved to the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (now the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills). In October 2008, she also became a Parliamentary Secretary in the Cabinet Office.
On 14 January 2009 she gave an interview on ITV's Lunchtime News, which concluded:
Alastair Stewart: "Final and briefest thought possible – you're a former banker and business person yourself and now a minister – when will we see the green shoots of recovery?
Baroness Vadera: "Well, it's a very uncertain world right now globally but I wouldn't want to be the one predicting it. I am seeing a few green shoots but it's a little bit too early to say exactly how they'll grow."
Her reply generated commentary from a number of sources, including shadow chancellor George Osborne and former chancellor Norman Lamont, who first used the phrase "green shoots" in 1991. Lamont said: "It is extremely premature to use a phrase like that."
Later that year London's Evening Standard reported that Vadera was instrumental in the creation of an unprecedented banking rescue package.[10] On 24 September 2009, it was announced that she would be stepping down as minister to take up a new role advising the G20.[1

A LIFE PEER - HOW MANY DID SHE BLOW ?
AND GREEN SHOOTS IN THE BANKERS AND GOV OFFICIALS BANK ACCOUNTS ONLY

Post-Government career
Baroness Vadera speaking at the student-run Warwick Economics Summit in February 2012
In April 2010, the Financial Times reported that Vadera had taken up a consultancy to give strategic advice in restucturing Dubai World’s US$26billion debt. In July, the Daily Telegraph reported Vadera had become consultant to Singaporean investment company Temasek.
“The reason people like Shriti are getting these offers is because there are very few people who understand the international finance world and the geopolitical world at a time when the financial world clearly has some issues with the political world.” said Martin Armstrong of recruitment consultants Somerton Partners.
In December 2010, she was appointed to the Boards of BHP Billiton and AstraZeneca as a Non-Executive Director

Couldn't help but notice this one...

    The Uk National Health Service currently employs 1.7 million people out of a uk total workforce of 29 million , all funded by high taxations on peoples wages and spending , thats 1/17th of the working people required to keep the uk medicated and tranquillised and also the fine medical work carried out by a sincere proportion


Employs 1.7 million people?! Shocked

Moving right along here in corporate governance for a clearer comprehension of what
possibly might be going on.

Spent the entire day today reading and am exhausted re: Jesuits - Georgetown - Patriot
Act
. These are some of my notes:

The Jesuits' (Frank O'Collins discussed last Monday on who is controlling the Jesuits) seem
to be influencing the decisions based on Catholic dogma and casuistry, so I ended up going
over to Frank O'Collins' site to see what he put together on the Patriot Act and read the
following which is very helpful:

    A Cestui Que VieTrust, also known later as a "Fide Commissary Trust" and later again as a “Foreign Situs trust” and also known as a form of “Secret Trust” is a fictional concept being a Temporary Testamentary Trust, first created during the reign of Henry VIII of England through the Cestui Que Vie Act of 1540 and updated by Charles II through the Cestui Que Vie Act of 1666 [this Act seems to be a large part of how the Patriot Act was written] wherein an Estate may be effected for the Benefit of one or more Persons presumed lost or abandoned at “sea” and therefore assumed/presumed “dead” after seven (7) years. [this seven year period is absolutely critical and is why parents should stop bringing slaves and subjects into this world; children should be taught to have their own will and not the will of the corporate state] Additional presumptions by which such a Trust may be formed were added in later statutes to include bankrupts, minors, incompetents, mortgages and private companies.


Cestui que Vie Act 166:

    The Cestui que Vie Act 1666 (18 & 19 Car 2 c 11) is an Act of the Parliament of England. This Act was partly in force in Great Britain at the end of 2010.


Since 1581, there has been a second series of Cestui Que Vie Estates concerning the property
of "persons" and rights which migrated to the United States for administration including:

    (i) In 1651 the Act for the Settlement of Ireland 1651-52 which introduced the concept of "settlements", enemies of the state [we're all considered 'enemies'; this status resulted from the Cestui sue Vie Act 1666 and must change] and restrictions of movement in states of "emeregency"; and

    (ii) In 1861 the Emergency Powers Act 1861; and

    (iii) In 1931 the Emergency Relief and Construction Act 1931-32; and

    (iv) in 2001 the Patriot Act 2001.


It appears the Rothschild's stepped in after they bankrupted England and took over these
trusts:

    By 1815 and the bankruptcy of the Crown and Bank of England by the Rothschilds, for the 1st time, the Cestui Que Vie Trusts of the United Kingdom became assets placed in private banks effectively becoming "private trusts" or "Fide Commissary Trusts" administered by commissioners (guardians). From 1835 and the Wills Act, these private trusts have been also considered "Secret Trusts" whose existence does not need to be divulged.


Think and study in detail what trusts are; it is key.

Does the Patriot Act comes under the Uniform Commercial Code and it reverts the assets
of the 'slaves' and 'terrorist combatants' into this Cestui Que Vie Trust? Those 'slaves' and
'terrorist combatants' are anybody these Knights of Malta say they are.

South Vietnam's President Ngo Dinh Diem, had been a minor official under the French
administration (Catholic; it was the French Jesuit Alexander de Rhodes who developed
the Vietnamese alphabet); and his older brother, Ngo Dinh Nhu, who was the Catholic
Bishop of Hue, who had studied with Francis Spellman (he's in a grave where he belongs)
in Rome during the 1930s. Diem was offered a position in the Vietnamese government,
but turned it down, instead, Ngo Dinh Diem headed for New York where he lived in a
monastery while Francis Spellman pulled strings on his behalf. Viet D. Dinh was I think
offered a way out in 1978 because of their influence within Catholic circles in govern-
ment to migrate to the United States. Somebody within these families gave birth to
Viet D. Dinh, and after reading all day long I couldn't come up with any genealogy or
names of his actual mother and father.

I checked a few sources and Viet D. Dinh has a huge influence not only in Washington,
but at Georgetown. Dinh is the 'godfather' of Lachlan Murdoch's (son of Rupert Murdoch)
son. Viet Dinh is Murdoch's News Corp.'s lawyer. Murdoch himself is Catholic donating
$10 million to a Catholic cathedral in Los Angeles. He was awarded a papal Order of St.
Gregory the Great Knighthood. Murdoch's other son by his first wife, James Murdoch,
paid £100,000 to meet the Pope. And Tony Blair is the 'godfather' of Rupert Murdoch's
two children from his third wife.

    Viet D. Dinh, along with fellow News Corp. board member, fellow lawyer, and Corporation executive Joel Klein, took over the investigation of the News of the World phone hacking affair and related Corporation issues in July, 2011, from News International UK Chief Executive, Rebekah Brooks. Brooks' own possible involvement in the phone hacking scandal made her unable to continue as an impartial investigator.



Dinh is linked with companies building this security state and does the dialectics at
Georgetown between the 'constitution' and corporations when there are conflicts in law.
We get the Acts and they get private law. This needs to be reversed. And I'm also
wondering, Georgetown has a private archive that is huge, I wonder if the grey's -
mercantilist families - archived their material there?

Catholic tyrants in Vietnam re: Ngo Ding Diem and Catholics converted by French Jesuits.
Catholicism is a catalyst to tyranny and commercial domination; it is the ideological and
psychological precursor to fascism

Hope I didn't scare anyone off with that last post of mine? I was looking for all the material
I could on Cardinal Francis Spellman and came across these gems.

Spellman was a complete rat. Homosexuals in New York called him 'Franny.' Not that it
makes any difference to me.

These videos are astonishing to watch.









Johnson Administration has the Catholic tyrant Ngo Dinh Diem whacked.

So, let me get this straight, the Jesuits are there to "intercede in our behalf to find fidelity with
God?"

    Jesuits at Georgetown


The country of Syria is ground center of major turbulence including potentially the destruction of an
enormous amount of life and property there. American foreign policy to a large extent originates
out of Georgetown University through such think tanks as the Brookings Institute.

If Jesuits are part of the dialogue here to help lead people to God, where the fuck are they, where
is their voice to get these maniacs running American foreign policy to back off Syria?

Here's an oxymoron, Jesuit 'peace' studies at Georgetown; think Iraq; Libya; Pakistan; Afghanistan;
Syria.

The mission statement:

    The Program on Justice and Peace (PJP) engages Georgetown University's Jesuit mission to understand and solve global problems.


"Solve global problems?" What is this, a bad joke?

The Catholic Church and Jesuits have been around for centuries and they still haven't got
the 'global problems' figured out. Get a new career fellas. Actually, that's Jesuit casuistry,
you see the more problems they create the more problems there are for them to solve.
A vicious cycle of self-imposed "problem solving."

    Peace Studies and the Jesuit Mission


Here's a problem to solve for the Jesuits at Georgetown, and I sure the fuck hope they
read this: A sixteen year-old boy born in Colorado in the United States and who was an
American citizen, was caught in Yemen and hit with a drone missile strike killing him. Is
that murder or is that war?



What about this dilemma: a drone operator firing missiles off a drone flying over Yemen
or Pakistan, sitting at a console seven-thousand miles away in Nevada, nails a target and
shreds a couple of children who happened to be walking down the street and their brains
and warm shards of flesh are left hanging all over the window sills in the neighborhood.
The drone operator then goes to Catholic Church the following Sunday and has his
'confession' heard by a Jesuit confessor. What the fuck kind of a psychological mind fuck
does that scenario present?

Sex-Crazed Co-Eds Going Broke Buying Birth Control, Student Tells Pelosi Hearing Touting Freebie Mandate

A Georgetown co-ed told Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in her law school program are having so much sex that they’re going broke, so you and I should pay for their birth control.

Speaking at a hearing held by Pelosi to tout Pres. Obama’s mandate that virtually every health insurance plan cover the full cost of contraception and abortion-inducing products, Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said that it’s too expensive to have sex in law school without mandated insurance coverage.

Apparently, four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it's hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception, Fluke's research shows.

"Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy (Georgetown student insurance not covering contraception), Fluke reported.

It costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint in law school, according to her calculations.

"Without insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school," Fluke told the hearing.

$3,000 for birth control in three years? That’s a thousand dollars a year of sex – and, she wants us to pay for it.

Yes, us. Where do you think the insurance companies forced to cover this cost get the money to pay for these co-eds to have sex? It comes from the health care insurance premiums you and I pay.

But, back to this woman’s complaint that women are spending $3,000 for birth control during her time in college.

"For a lot of students, like me, who are on public interest scholarships, that’s practically an entire summer’s salary," she complains.

So, they can earn enough money in just one summer to pay for three full years of sex. And, yes, they are full years – since that could translate into having sex nearly three times a day for three years straight, apparently.

At a dollar a condom if she shops at CVS pharmacy’s website, that $3,000 would buy her 3,000 condoms – or, 1,000 a year. (By the way, why does CVS.com list the weight of its condom products in terms of pounds?)

Assuming it’s not a leap year, that’s 1,000 divided by 365 – or having sex 2.74 times a day, every day, for three straight years. And, I thought Georgetown was a Catholic university where women might be prone to shun casual, unmarried sex. At least its health insurance doesn't cover contraception (that which you subsidize, you get more of, you know).

And, that’s not even considering that there are Planned Parenthood clinics in her neighborhood that give condoms away and sell them at a discount, which could help make her sexual zeal more economical.

Besides, maybe, these female law students could cut back on some other expenses to make room for more birth control in their budgets, instead of making us pick up the tab. With classes and studying and all that sex, who's got time for cable?

And, let's not forget about these deadbeat boyfriends (or random hook-ups?) who are having sex 2.74 times a day. If Fluke's going to ask the government to force anyone to foot the bill for her friends' birth control, shouldn't it be these guys?

All of this seems to suggest at least two important conclusions:

If these women want to have sex, we shouldn't be forced to pay for it, and
If these co-eds really are this guy crazy, I should've gone to law school

the sheboygan shooting is hard to say. the guy had a threatening posture and got right in the cops face after getting out of the car. i think the tasering was justified.

however the news said he had a gun but you cant see because after the tasering he stumbles outside the cop cars camera view. lol sounds like a convenient excuse to shoot the guy.

this looks like a case of justified force turned into lethal force for no reason.

The intent of putting these videos up was not to stigmatize the Dunn & Bradstreet corporate security guards, but
to simply demonstrate some of the violent dynamics going on here and which are seemingly on the rise. And I don't

First county in the United States to pull out of Agenda 21:

    Richard Rothschild Battles Local Agenda 21


Also, something else that needs to be nipped in the bud and quick: the UN mandate for a 'birth certificate'
for every flesh and blood child born into this world. The corporate trust is established with a birth certificate
and turned over to the IMF as a debt. The birth certificate registers an event, not the birth of an actual child.
That event then becomes taxable.

An eventual UN mandated corporate carbon tax on 'property'?

    Certain events are taxable - revenue taxable events. Death is also an 'event' and there are indeed death taxes imposed. It would seem that there would be also a birth tax. Is the creation of a trust a revenue taxable activity? According to the IRC? Is there a statute that describes the activity of birth that makes one subject to and liable for the taxes imposed?


    No birth certificate means kids ripe for exploitation in poor countries: expert

Noticed That LANCE ARMSTRONG was stripped of his 7 tour de france titles today for alleged doping , i suppose the evidence must be pretty damning for him not to try and oppose this action

Now what normally happens when a sportsperson is convicted of taking banned substances / drugs for performance enhancing is that they are treated like a pariah, a cheat, all doors are slammed in their face, take 1988 Ben johnson for example , there are a long list of others who are oulawed and ridiculed as competitors

Five-time Tour winner Bernard Hinault was dismissive of how Armstrong's case had been handled. "Frankly, I don't give a damn," Hinault told Ouest France newspaper. "It's his problem, not mine. This problem should have been settled 10 or 15 years ago."

Two-time Tour winner Thevenet said that Armstrong's downfall "is very bad news for cycling" though balanced by the potential deterrent effect for the future. At the grassroots level, little change is expected to come from cycling's latest scandal.

The cycling boom that Armstrong is credited with sparking in the U.S. continued both during his 2006-08 absence from the sport and since his retirement, according to figures from USA Cycling. Numbers show an uninterrupted increase in USA Cycling's membership, to 70,829 last year from 69,771 a year earlier.

The former deputy head of the Tour de France said the latest twist in Armstrong's case "isn't a surprise, we've been expecting this for a while." Daniel Baal, the Tour deputy director from 2001 to 2004, the pinnacle of Armstrong's reign, said cycling authorities must not stop pursuing others connected to any doping uncovered by the Armstrong investigation.

"My only wish is that USADA go all the way and lay out the whole dossier, because we have to know everything, especially all the accomplices who supported Lance Armstrong," Baal said on France Info radio.


Some doubt remains about the impact on Armstrong's vast and varied business interests. But the initial reaction from his biggest sponsor, Nike Inc., suggests that he retains their support. The sportswear giant issued a statement that said it "plans to continue to support Lance and the Lance Armstrong Foundation" because of Lance's "unwavering" protestations of innocence.

Armstrong's other endorsements include or have included deals with RadioShack Corp., Oakley sunglasses, 24-hour Fitness, Nissan, Anheuser-Busch InBev's Michelob Ultra, FRS energy drinks and Trek bikes. Several of them also support Armstrong's foundation, which he started after he beat cancer.


Former rival Ullrich played down the significance that USADA's decision will have on the sport. Ullrich, who served a two-year doping ban, said, "I'm no longer bothered" about the Armstrong saga. The retired German racer, constantly second to Armstrong, expressed no desire to rewrite the record book of cycling's greatest event, even though he would be the biggest beneficiary.

"I know how the order was on the finishing line at the time," Ullrich said. "I've finished with my professional career and have always said that I was proud of my second-place finishes."

But Mr Lance is now more than an individual cheat, hes an institution with large corporate strings and funds invested through his achievements and they aint pulling the plug on that amount of investment

Im actually surprised that someone didnt silence the investigators with a money bag or a sex scandal , maybe they tried and failed.

I still cant quite believe the statement from Nike Inc ........."The sportswear giant issued a statement that said it "plans to continue to support Lance and the Lance Armstrong Foundation" because of Lance's "unwavering" protestations of innocence."

Big Corp Money creates its own laws , ethics, morals , whatever it takes , the sooner everyone really ets this point, the sooner the curtain of illusion will be removed from these parasites

edit:



http://nyvelocity.com/content/interviews/2009/michael-ashenden


this article assumes that USADA's procedures are fair. however, recent news has shown that the governing bodies of our sports (USADA, NHL, NFL, NBA) are corrupt power hoarders and their "procedures" are broken as fuck. refusing to turn over evidence. appeals that will be heard by the same people that decided you were guilty in the first place etc



innocent or guilty though, its outrageous hes getting hunted like this, and so much hostile attention. lance has made a lot of enemies...with his attitude, his behavior, his personality, his success.

everyone doping, and you go after lance like a shark? ridiculous.
if theyre serious about cleaning up the sport (impossible) they need to just wash the slate and leave things in the past the way they are. a reconciliation and commitment to clean riding, whatever. everyone admits it was ubiquitous and everyone gets equal treatment.

its ridiculous to target the top successful guys because theyre more visible. it gives it the strong appearance of spite. cycling is so dirty that making examples is just petulant

U.S. Army Characterizes People “Frustrated With Mainstream Ideologies” As Terrorists

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com

A leaked U.S. Army document obtained by Wired Magazine characterizes people “frustrated with mainstream ideologies” as potential terrorists, while also framing those who “believe in government conspiracies” as violent radicals.



“These are some warning signs that that you have turned into a terrorist who will soon kill your co-workers, according to the U.S. military. You’ve recently changed your “choices in entertainment.” You have “peculiar discussions.” You “complain about bias,” you’re “socially withdrawn” and you’re frustrated with “mainstream ideologies,” writes Spencer Ackerman.

The manual http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/dangerroom/2012/10/Radicalization-FINAL090911.pdf was produced in 2011 by the Asymmetric Warfare Group, a unit within the U.S. Army headquartered at Fort Meade, Maryland. The document is intended to weed out “internal threats” within the ranks of U.S. soldiers.


Given that both the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI have identified returning veterans as one of the primary domestic terror threats, the document is seemingly designed to spot such radical extremists well ahead of time.

Examples of behavior that is considered an indication of potential terrorism include the following;

- Complaining about bias;

- Being frustrated with “mainstream ideologies”;

- Being reclusive;

- Believing in government conspiracies “to the point of paranoia”;

- Visiting “extremist” websites or blogs;

- Altering your reading habits;

- Having “peculiar discussions”;

- Being “highly emotional”;

- Using “social networks”.

The Army manual is just one of numerous similar manuals and publications issued by military, law enforcement and the federal government over the last decade which define mundane behavior as extremist and a potential indication of terrorism.

As we reported earlier this month, a leaked training manual used in the State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training (SLATT) program for law enforcement and funded by the Department of Justice lists political bumper stickers expressing opposition to the United Nations and support for the bill of rights as indications of terrorist activity.

The document also characterizes people who hold political opinions that “represent a fairly popular point of view” as terrorists. Anti-abortion activists are also listed as terrorists under this category.

The infamous 2009 MIAC report, published by the Missouri Information Analysis Center and first revealed by Infowars, framed Ron Paul supporters, libertarians, people who display bumper stickers, people who own gold, or even people who fly a U.S. flag, as potential terrorists.

Under the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism program, the bulk purchase of food is also labeled as a potential indication of terrorist activity, as is using cash to pay for a cup of coffee, and showing an interest in web privacy when using the Internet in a public place.

A recent Department of Homeland Security-funded study produced by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism at the University of Maryland characterizes Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists.

Walmart Workers Ask For Basic Rights, Walmart Calls Riot Police



A Monday afternoon protest in Illinois gets heated. Workers at Walmart contractor Roadlink have been on strike since Sept. 15.

About 650 people protested a major Walmart distribution center Monday in Elwood, Illinois, the Chicago Tribute reports.

At Walmart contractor Roadlink, workers have been on strike since mid-September, claiming unsafe working conditions and unfair wages. From the movement's website:

No one should come to work and endure extreme temperatures, inhale dust and chemical residue, and lift thousands of boxes weighing up to 250lbs with no support. Workers never know how long the work day will be- sometimes its two hours, sometimes its 16 hours. Injuries are common, as is discrimination against women and illegal retaliation against workers who speak up for better treatment.

Reports from the protest vary, but photos show riot police restraining some protesters with zip-ties. The rally had apparently been declared an "unlawful assembly." Pat Barcas of Fox Valley Labor News reports that 17 people were arrested.



A motley crew...enemies of the state. Damn if that skinny ol' black chick in the front don't look jus' like bin Laden with no beard, thirty pounds lighter and with breast implants...better ID her. And that old guy on the right, with the beard, last I heard Santa Claus was wanted on federal charges of illegal shipping over state lines...ID him too. Or Or better yet, just mow them down!!!




Now these are the ultra-secret underground American, grey-haired, geriatric, arthritic, minimum wage earner type Al Qaeda.
It is well-known just how efficient a bomb can be constructed by the joint efforts of those living off seven dollars an hour and having access to the chemical shelves of their Wal Mart employers...not to mention gun and ammo sales as well.
Groups of them congregating must be met with full force to secure the public safety. The need to make ten dollars an hour instead of seven is a threat to national security.

And by the way...these zip-ties...compliments of Wal Mart...can be bought at your neighborhood store...aisle 12...two for one sale until November.





Gentlemen...our superiors at Wal Mart have given the order...shoot to kill!!! Leave no one alive!!!




Now...let me see...um...the police department investment fund has...um...fifteen percent of its assets invested in Wal-Mart. So I must defend the corporate police dividends and stock returns along with my own retirement benefits. These people deserve nothing short of a quick death...how dare they get in the way of production!!!




Snort...!!! Grunt...!!! I get a 5% discount on every bag of Wal Mart fried pork rinds for every skull I bust.




All I know is that I finally get to kill somebody.




Sorry, unless you can outbid what Wal Mart is paying me...your death is imminent. Constitution??? Rights??? Sorry old man, I don't know the blathering language you are trying to speak.




We pray to Almighty God that Wal Mart gives us what we need.





It is imperative in this day of terrorism that if Almighty God should happen to show up, then we are prepared to handle Almighty God with the latest in L-Rad energy weapons.




Obama...help me my lord and savior Obama!!! Why have thou forsaken me...my Goldman Sachs brother?




Area is now cleared, domestic terrorists are now loaded and on-board rendition flights to Guantanamo, legal slavery and commerce may continue, profits and investments have been secured...head back to home base!!!


What I truly find interesting is that fully outfitted riot police like these at the G8, RNC and other large events are all...WHITE.

Very cool corporate post, the image with the caption below something to the effect that the
cop finally gets to kill some one was good.

Those corporate security officers under the guise of "law enforcement" look like such wankers.
They probably go home at night and feed their fucking guard dogs and listen to hard core
heavy metal music.

You raised a very good point: police (corporate security under provisional statute laws in
private commerce) having their pension funds invested in WalMart. Here's the point: the New
York Firemen's pension funds were invested heavily in the businesses and corporations involved
in 9/11. That's why they are not blowing the whistle. Blow the whistle and they lose their
pensions.

Some of these provisional corporate security guards operating under private commerce must
live in the same neighborhoods as some of those striking Walmart employees. I wonder if they
know each other and perhaps have not run into each other shopping, putting petrol in the car,
at the doctors office or running Saturday afternoon errands?

Corporate security guard who shops at WalMart: "Hey Chuck, sorry I had to crack your skull and put the plastic zip locks on your wrists last weekend."

WalMart employee: "Thank God you didn't fuckin' tazer me like you did Mrs. Miniwage."

Walmart worker strikes go viral, hitting 28 stores in 12 states

Walmart workers who recently went on strike in Illinois and California appear to have inspired some of their fellow big box employees, and now it looks like the movement is going viral.

Labor leaders said Tuesday, just one day before Walmart’s annual shareholder meeting, that workers at 28 stores in 12 states walked out and went on strike to demand the anti-union employer raise wages, improve working conditions and end retaliations against employees who attempt to form unions.

“It’s not a hard sell because these people are tired of being treated the way we are being treated by Walmart,” Evelin Cruz, a striking Walmart worker in the Los Angeles area, told Raw Story on Wednesday. “They disregard us as workers. They think that we are machines, we should have no emotions. We should not have families. We should not have the right to speak. So it’s pretty easy to convince people to get on-board. We need to have more voices around the country being heard with the same message, because it is the same situation in every store and throughout their supply chain.”

The strikes on Tuesday were just the second time in more than a half century that Walmart workers walked off the job at multiple stores, and comes on the heels of strikes at nine Walmart stores in Los Angeles. Those followed a 21-day action put on by Chicago-area Walmart warehouse workers, whose strike recently ended after their employer agreed to a major settlement over allegations of wage theft.

In the wake of these two strikes and the ripple-effect being felt across the company, it suddenly looks like a whole new ballgame for organized labor.

One of the problems striking workers cite is the lack of access to full-time working hours, which prevents them from obtaining even the meager health benefits the company offers. The National Consumer’s League (NCL) told Raw Story that Walmart’s refusal to provide those benefits by exploiting part-time labor leads to a number of spillover costs that taxpayers ultimately pick up.

“Many Walmart workers are dependent on public assistance programs due to their low wages and not having access to full time jobs and being denied benefits because they’re not working the number of hours required to get access to those benefits, or the benefits are just so expensive that on their low wages they just can’t afford them,” NCL Executive Director Sally Greenberg said in an exclusive interview. “Walmart has a record of even working with employees to sign them up for public assistance programs, which we think is really atrocious.”

She added that Walmart’s position of keeping wages low in order to pass the savings along to consumers doesn’t wash either: “Companies that pay a decent wage and provide benefits to their workers help create a middle class that is able to buy the kinds of products that Walmart sells,” Greenberg explained. “It is actually a plus for companies if they provide fair compensation to workers. It’s also better for consumers when they’re able to actually afford housing, healthcare and have access to benefits of the kind we think Walmart, with all its success and profits, ought to be able to pay workers.”

The famously anti-union retailer, which says it employs more than 2.1 million people, raked in $114.3 billion in revenues during just the second fiscal quarter of 2012, earning a profit of $4.02 billion. Berkeley labor economist Sylvia Allegretto found last year that just six of the Walton family’s richest members have a combined wealth greater than the bottom 30 percent of American earners put together.

The problem with increasing labor’s leverage against that kind of wealth is that most Walmart workers don’t realize that U.S. law guarantees their right to strike if their employer has violated labor law, which is why organized workers are calling for an end to illegal “retaliations” against workers who discuss forming unions. Groups on a conference call organized by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union on Wednesday said they’re planning another round of strikes on Black Friday, the biggest sales day of the year, if their demands aren’t met.

Colby Harris, a striking Walmart worker in Dallas, told Raw Story that the primary obstacle to growing their numbers is fear, plain and simple. “It’s not hard to convince people,” he said, stressing that “there is no such thing as job security” at Walmart. “We all work there together, they see what’s going on. They know that what Walmart does is not right. The thing about it is that those people who haven’t joined are just so fearful.”

“They want to see someone stand up for them first, and that’s what [we] are here for, to show them that you can go on strike and you can go back to work and not face any injustice or termination because you chose to stand up for your rights,” he added. “We can’t be fearful. We have to set the example for other workers.”

Mike Compton, who joined the victorious strike put on by Walmart warehouse workers in Illinois, insisted that Tuesday’s actions were just the beginning. “The fact that we were on strike for 23 days and we are now back in, the workers see now they do have rights,” he said. “We’re planning a ‘Know Your Rights’ class for workers, where we’ll go over the [National Labor Relations Bureau] handbook and teach them that we do have the right to organize and stand up for fair labor practices. We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, but we’re going to get it done.”

Walmart did not respond to a request for comment on this story.

This is a good sign, but the key term is Security which stems from financial debt, psychological conditioning which controls how people can rebel in their given circumstances
It would b good to see one of these giant corps brought to a halt by people power then blacklisted and put out of business

Fair enough the owners would probably own the alternative corp as well, but it would be a good start of the defrag process required to take some of the power away from these goliaths of modern finance

So why would a company like WalMart bring out an L-Rad energy weapon and vehicle to potentially combat a peaceful labor demonstration of mostly almost elderly aged employees basically just asking for a raise in pay, better working conditions and to be treated more like a human being rather than an animal or a robot?

The Swiss Federal Institute (SFI) in Zurich released a study entitled “The Network of Global Corporate Control” that proves a small consortiums of corporations — mainly banks — run the world. A mere 147 corporations which form a “super entity” have control 40% of the world’s wealth; which is the real economy. These mega-corporations are at the center of the global economy.


Here is the explanation of the abstract put out to prevent others from misunderstanding what the study is and isn't...

The actual abstract...

Top 50 Control-Holders Ranking:

{source: the following is quoted directly from the research paper]

This is the first time a ranking of economic actors by global control is presented. Notice that many actors belong to the financial sector (NACE codes starting with 65,66,67) and many of the names are well-known global players.

The interest of this ranking is not that it exposes unsuspected powerful players. Instead, it shows that many of the top actors belong to the core. This means that they do not carry out their business in isolation but, on the contrary, they are tied together in an extremely entangled web of control. This finding is extremely important since there was no prior economic theory or empirical evidence regarding whether and how top players are connected.

Shareholders are ranked by network control (according to the threshold model, TM). Columns indicate country, NACE industrial sector code, actor’s position in the bow-tie sections, cumulative network control. Notice that NACE codes starting with 65,66, or 67 belong to the financial sector.

Thats great info there Qsc, great to expose this level of spider web with all the obvious interactions going on between them as they play the consumer to their dance

i think it all went out of control when individual countries began whoring out their internal monopolies like public transport, electricity, water, telephone, pharma , hospital care , banking etc to these corporate goliaths.
Once they had these under control, so was any politician that rose above the sewer as part of a mainstream party

the concept in the fim Rollerball is taking shape as the world watches

'Super Entity" = great term

Will read this plos link thoroughly great stuff in this

The Mayflower Compact was the first governing document of Plymouth Colony. It was written by the Separatists, also known as the "Saints", fleeing from religious persecution by King James of Great Britain. They traveled aboard the Mayflower in 1620 along with adventurers, tradesmen, and servants, most of whom were referred to as "Strangers".

The Mayflower Compact was signed aboard ship on November 11, 1620 by most adult men (but not by most crew and adult male servants). The Pilgrims used the Julian Calendar, also known as Old Style dates, which, at that time, was ten days behind the Gregorian Calendar. Signing the covenant were 41 of the ship's 101 passengers, while the Mayflower was anchored in what is now Provincetown Harbor within the hook at the northern tip of Cape Cod.

Reasons for the Compact

The Mayflower was originally bound for the Colony of Virginia, financed by the Company of Merchant Adventurers of London. Storms forced the landing to be at the hook of Cape Cod in what is now Massachusetts. This inspired the passengers to proclaim that since the settlement would not be made in the agreed upon Virginia territory, they "would use their own liberty; for none had power to command them...." To prevent this, many of the other colonists chose to establish a government. The Mayflower Compact was based simultaneously upon a majoritarian model (even though the signers were not in the majority) and the settlers' allegiance to the king. It was in essence a social contract in which the settlers consented to follow the compact's rules and regulations for the sake of survival.

In November 1620, the Mayflower landed at Plymouth, named after the major port city in Devon, England from which she sailed. The settlers named their settlement "Plimoth" or "Plimouth", using the Early Modern English spellings of the early 17th century.
Text

Although the original document has been lost, three versions exist from the 17th century: printed in Mourt's Relation (1622), which was reprinted in Purchas his Pilgrimes (1625), hand written by William Bradford in his journal Of Plimoth Plantation (1646), and printed by Bradford's nephew Nathaniel Morton in New-Englands Memorial (1669).[6] The three versions differ slightly in wording and significantly in spelling, capitalization and punctuation. William Bradford wrote the first part of Mourt's Relation, including its version of the compact, so he wrote two of the three versions. The wording of those two versions is indeed quite similar, unlike that of Morton. Bradford's handwritten manuscript is kept in a vault at the State Library of Massachusetts.

Modern version

In the name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the loyal subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, King, defender of the Faith, etc.

Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.
In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620.

The 'dread sovereign' referred to in the document used the archaic definition of dread—meaning awe and reverence (for the King), not fear. Also, as noted above, the document was signed under the Old Style Julian calendar, since England did not adopt the Gregorian calendar until 1752. The Gregorian date would be November 21.
