225-year-old Baltimore Columbus monument vandalized

A 225-year-old marble Colombus obelisk in Baltimore, the oldest of its kind in the nation, had its base smashed in by vandals early on Monday. The results were posted on Youtube, along with a statement that, since Columbus was responsible for the colonial exploitation of the indigenous, brown, and black people of the Americas, he was not a suitable subject for a monument.

This is the most egregious in a long list of defacements in recent weeks that have affected monuments to Lincoln, Columbus, Washington, Robert E. Lee, and Martin Luther King.

These are acts of war, no less than the destruction of churches and mosques by ISIS.

I suggest public lashing, which has had such a salutary effect in Singapore.

Twenty lashings for each miscreant, followed by a year’s unpaid labor repairing monuments.

A nation that does not have the will to propose and execute swift reprisal against cultural terrorism deserves neither its monuments nor the history which they commemorate.

Saving General Lee

From the Imaginative Conservative, a defense of Robert E. Lee by Stephen M. Klugewicz:

“Despising revolutionary social change and the rhetoric of the abolitionists, he hoped for gradual emancipation and shared with Abraham Lincoln a sympathy for the idea of colonizing freed African Americans in Central America or Africa.

Lee never purchased a slave in his life. The slaves over whom he had control, some 200, came to him through his marriage to Mary Custis, a descendant of George Washington. Lee became the executor of his father-in-law’s will. Though permitted by the will to free the slaves upon the elder Custis’ death in 1857, Lee deemed the slaves necessary to the financial recovery of the Arlington estate. He thus kept them enslaved as long as he could—the will stipulated a maximum of five years—freeing them in December 1862 on the eve of the Emancipation Proclamation’s going into effect. Again, Lee believed that his highest duty was to his family, in this case to their economic well-being, and this trumped his concern for the freedom of the particular slaves under his control.

In this, as in his paternalistic attitude toward blacks, Lee fell short of heroism. Of the bondsmen Lee once opined that “the painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race,” and he told a congressional committee after the war that it was his view blacks “at this time, cannot vote intelligently,” though he added, “what the future may prove, how intelligent they may become…I cannot say more than you can.” As Lee’s great biographer Douglas Southall Freeman writes, his “was the prevailing view among most religious people of Lee’s class in the border states. Lee shared these convictions of his neighbors without ever having come in contact with the worst evils of African bondage.”

is conservative views precluded him from, say, taking the extreme step taken by his relation, Robert Carter III, who because of his radical religious convictions freed all 500 of his slaves in 1800. It should be recalled that George Washington only provided for his slaves’ freedom in his will, and only after his wife Martha’s death (though she freed her slaves during her lifetime, as she feared they might kill her.) Lee thought enough of the prowess of African Americans that he was a proponent of enlisting slaves to fight for the Confederacy and thereby earn their freedom. This is also additional evidence that Lee did not consider the war a crusade to preserve slavery, as he was willing to give up the institution in order to secure the greater goal of Southern independence. In the post-war years, numerous incidents were reported in which Lee flouted the conventions of his class and daringly treated a black man as his equal in social situations.

Despite his flaws when it came to his views on race, Lee should be honored as a hero by all Americans and especially by conservatives. His classical devotion to the idea of duty has been mentioned. His resistance to the temptations of power also demands our acclaim. Much is rightly made of George Washington’s laying down of his sword at the end of the American Revolution to resume his status as a private citizen. Lee similarly passed this Tolkienian test when Abraham Lincoln, on the advice of General Winfield Scott, offered him command of all United States forces in April 1861 after South Carolina forces fired on Fort Sumter. Lee declined the offer, which would have gained for him the ultimate career goal sought by every West Point-trained military man.

We must remember that the alternative for Lee was NOT the command of the Confederate armies. He was not foregoing one offer of power in order to pursue another. Indeed, his home state of Virginia had not yet seceded, and at the moment he rejected Lincoln’s offer the most he could have reasonably hoped for was command of Virginia’s troops (an honor that he did eventually receive.) It ought to be kept in mind also that Lee was aware of the superior manpower number of the North and the superior resources of Northern industrialism; the prospects of Southern independence were far from certain. As with the American Revolutionaries, the noose seemed the most likely end for the leaders of Southern independence.

Even when Virginia seceded and war began, Lee did not immediately receive a high command within Confederate ranks. He was relegated to a desk job, serving as an advisor to President Jefferson Davis. He did not receive a field command until May of 1862, when General Joseph E. Johnston was severely wounded during the Seven Days’ Battles on the Virginia Peninsula. Lee then took command of the Army of Northern Virginia, but he would not be appointed commander of all Confederate forces until January 1865. This was a series of events that he could hardly have expected when he refused Lincoln’s immediate offer of power in 1861.

In addition to duty, Lee valued humility. He did not angle for promotion as he chafed at his desk job in Richmond. Rather, he humbly served President Davis, and even after being assigned command of the Army of Northern Virginia, his letters reveal that he always deferred to the prickly Davis. Just as Lee eschewed ambition, so he avoided avarice, turning down several offers in the post-war years to lend his name to companies in return for lucrative compensation. The idea of profiting from the selling of his name was anathema to Lee.

Lee embodied the Aristotelian ideal of moderation. As the deep South seceded in the winter of 1860-1861, Lee, stationed in Texas, was shocked when Texas voted for secession in February 1861; one witness recalled that Lee’s “lips trembled and his eyes [became] full of tears” when he heard the news. Lee voiced his resolve not to take up arms against the Union, “but it may be necessary for me to carry a musket in defense of my native state.” When Virginia reversed its initial vote against secession in May 1861—in the light of Lincoln’s decision to make war upon the South—Lee made the anguished decision to resign his commission in the United States Army, concluding that despite his love for the Union, he “could not take part in an invasion of the southern states.”

Lee indeed despised war. Surveying the slaughter of Union troops charging his lines at Fredericksburg in December 1862, Lee commented to an aide: “It is good that war is so terrible. Otherwise, we would enjoy it too much.” As Richard Weaver has argued, this profound statement, “richer than a Delphic saying,” shows Lee to be a true philosopher. In the days after the smashing Confederate victory, Lee wrote to his wife: “What a cruel thing is war; to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbours, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world!” This is far from the tone of a bloodthirsty martinet drunk on the intoxication of his repeated victories.

Twenty-eight months later, as mentioned above, at Appomattox Lee turned aside the suggestions of aides to continue the fight as a guerilla war. The social anarchy and protracted bloodshed that would result were anathema to the conservative Lee, and he prudently judged that Southern independence was not worth the price. Guerilla war horrified Lee because it would bring down the wrath of Mars more harshly on civilians. Indeed, Lee rejected the idea of total war that was developed by Union Generals Grant, William T. Sherman, and Phillip Sheridan, and embraced by President Lincoln. Lee was always careful to avoid civilian casualties. On the first campaign into Maryland in 1862, Lee issued General Order No. 72, which prohibited the plundering of civilian property and reminded his soldiers “that we make war only upon armed men.”

Robert E. LeeLee’s action in issuing this order can be contrasted with that of Union General John Pope, whom Lee had just soundly defeated prior to his foray into Maryland. Only weeks prior to Lee’s Order No. 72, Pope had issued his own order authorizing in Virginia the burning of private homes and the levying of fines upon civilians as retribution for guerilla actions taken against Union troops. More egregiously, in May of 1862, Union General Benjamin Butler, presiding over conquered New Orleans, had issued his infamous General Order No. 28, stipulating that “when any female shall by word, gesture, or movement insult or show contempt for any officer or soldier of the United States she shall be regarded and held liable to be treated as a woman of the town plying her avocation.” In practice, this meant that a female civilian who dared merely to display a Confederate symbol on her dress was liable to be raped by Union troops. Such atrocities did occur.

Lee’s dogged adherence to the traditional, Christian principles of limited war is even more impressive in light of the many atrocities that were authorized and indeed perpetrated against his own people by his enemy. Lee considered the protection of civilian life so important that, as the head of the detachment sent to capture abolitionist John Brown on the eve of the Civil War, Lee ordered his Marines to unload their rifles during their assault on the building where Brown had holed up, lest the hostages that Brown held be injured or killed.

Lee’s amazing self-restraint reflected the advice he had given to a young mother about raising her infant son: “Teach him he must deny himself.” The Christian Lee valued self-control as essential to proper behavior and indeed to personal and public liberty. “I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself,” he said in evaluating his military subordinates. Lee practiced what he preached. He had the rare distinction of being a cadet who did not earn a single demerit at West Point. He expected the same gentlemanly behavior from the young men in his care at Lexington, Virginia’s Washington College, of which he became president after Appomattox. There he reduced the college’s many rules to one simple rule: “Every student must be a gentleman.”

As his name and image, and those of his fellow Confederate officers, are removed from shops, schools, and museums across the country, it is ever more important, especially for conservatives, to speak up for Robert E. Lee. A man of military genius and personal honor, a defender of civilians and civilization, a champion of duty and truth, a model of humility and prudence, Lee was perhaps the last defender of the ideals of the Old Republic, whose greying glory was ground under the wheels of the New Order of the centralized, industrialized state that triumphed in 1865. Though he wore the racial blinders of his class and time, Robert E. Lee was a man of exemplary character and remains an excellent role model for all Americans and is indeed a worthy contender for the title of “Greatest American.”’

Tear Down The Lincoln Monuments Too

“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races — that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I, as much as any other man, am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.” —

Abraham Lincoln.

So, tell me, when are the monuments to the sainted Abe coming down?

Southern History Erased Overnight In Baltimore

Like the sneak thieves they are, Baltimore city officials summarily removed the magnificent statues of General Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson from the Wyman Park Dell,  in the dead of night.

Also erased overnight from the cityscape were the Confederate Women’s monument at West University Parkway, the statue of Justice Roger B. Taney at Mount Vernon, and the monument to the Confederate soldiers and sailors at Mount Royal.

The pretext is that southern monuments provide a rallying point for “white nationalists” and led to the death of a progressive activist in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12.

Bunkum.

The erasure and rewriting of Southern history has been an ongoing project of the globalists for a while now and what happened in Charlottesville was simply a step on the way, a pretext.

Charlottesville smacks of a cointelpro operation.

You had police forces at Charlottesville apparently told to stand down. They did nothing while both sides brawled openly.

You had black-masked antifascist or antifa provocateurs engaged in fist-fights with self-styled KKK and neo-Nazis.

What do the KKK and Nazis have to do with Robert E. Lee, except smear his supporters by association?

The antifa people have been proven to have received funds from George Soros, the leftist billionaire who works with the CIA.

Now the DOJ has a warrant to get the million-plus IP addresses of visitors to an antifa-linked site, an order that Dreamhost, the site’s hosting company, is fighting in court.

The leftist chumps were set up.

So were the right.

Jason Kessler who organized the march is of Jewish extraction and was until a year or two ago an Obama supporter. Some Nazi.

Christopher Cantwell, whom I have linked here, until he started advocating violence, proved he was a provocateur once more.

At Charlottesville, he stated that Trump should not have let his beautiful daughter marry a Jew, thus smearing by association any Trump fan as a biological racist.

Most Trump voters voted their pocket-book, not their race.

The right was set up in other ways.

Consider the behavior of Richard Spencer, a well-known provocateur mentored by the Judaist god-father of the alt-right, Paul Gottfried,

Of course, Gottfried, who has quickly side-stepped his responsibility, is not the only Judaist god-father of  gentile white nationalism. There was also Mencius Moldbug (aka Curtis Yarvin), who spun a more  attractive version of Gottfried’s spiel, but gave the game away by christening the unholy alliance of academia, media, and political ideology, the Cathedral. 

This slur is somehow not anti-Gentilism. But only mention the names of the real Sanhedrin that governs us and the cyber-ambushes and cybersabotage begin, as we found out to our grief recently.

On this blog, I have shown that Donald Trump/Drumpf is of Prussian and Jewish extraction. So also are such key figures of his administration as Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus, among many, many others.

In the media, the situation is no better.

Milo Yiannopoulos, Mike Peinovich, Andrew Anglin, and other assorted professional alt-righters adopt the most superficial, crude, provocative, and damning neo-Nazi language, while retaining many of the key presuppositions of their enemies. They are agents of deception, not cultural conservatives.

Since the infiltration of the John Birch society in the 1950’s and 60’s, there has been no major white nationalist group that has not been infiltrated, coopted, and turned.

Dr. William Pierce, the author of the “Turner Diaries” was known by insiders to have a cozy relationship with the powers-that-be, including the SPLC. Each group terrorized their followers with the other group and raked in the profits.

“White nationalism” as a clear-and-present danger to the republic is a red (as in, leftist) herring and a pretext created by the globalists, who are happy to fan the flames of both white and black racism, as it suits them.

The cowardly and disgraceful obliteration of Southern history was the goal all along.

What is equally disgraceful is that the provocateurs who are instigating the erasure of southern history are erasing their own history.

Jews were prominent in the Confederate army and government, and Robert Lee, now vilifed as a racist, was renowned for his respectful treatment of his Jewish soldiers, in marked contrast to their treatment in the North.

Bitcoins – Coins For the Cryptocracy

People all over the political spectrum are pushing bitcoins again.

I explained earlier why I felt you should avoid them. When I did, I withheld any reasoning except the most logical and self-evident.

Short version:

You can accomplish everything that bitcoins can achieve with good old cash. And you don’t need electricity, internet, computers, devices, and security software when you use cash.

Second, if governments hate cash for its secrecy, why are they ignoring or pushing cryptocurrencies, which are supposedly even more secretive?

Makes no sense, does it?

The problem with bitcoins is they provide a solution for what isn’t a problem.

Secrecy isn’t a problem.

Secrecy can be achieved as is, if you set your mind on it.

The real problem is that every increase in secrecy augments the power of the cryptocracy – the unholy alliance of the spy agencies, criminals, and criminal financial cartels.

These are the forces that actually control our lives.

The criminal ruling class loves bitcoin because they know they have the power to exploit it fully. The ordinary chump just thinks he does.

As for Satoshi Nakamto, there’s no such person. It’s a made-up name, even though it has a meaning. A sinister one that gives the game away.

Don’t let clever people fool you into thinking it’s a real person.

They are probably being compensated for saying so.

Remember, practically every political site of any size on the web is in bed with intelligence. When they are not, they get pruned regularly.

Just see what happened to me here.

Bitcoin comes out of Israeli cryptographic research. The details I don’t know, but that’s generally accurate.

It’s not about saving anyone. It’s about enacting the kabbalist’s vision on earth.

That vision demands that the Anglo-Judaic Western powers rule the world through decentralized systems.

Those who are pushing bitcoin are on board that agenda.

I am too busy recovering from the latest body-blow from the cryptocracy to spell it out better just now.

But I will get to it.

If you want to gamble, go ahead.

But if you adopt bitcoins because you think your life will become opaque to the powers-that-be, you might want to rethink that.

The only way to hide anything done on your computer is to turn it off, smash the hard drive into metal dust, and throw it into a nuclear waste site.

But even then, there are still the servers and the other fellows’ computers.

Not to mention advances in technology or mathematics that will turn bitcoins invulnerability into mush.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Migrant Invasion of Asia: Pedo Rapist Huckle

A headline you will never see at any alt-right blog:

UK’s worst paedo faces 22 life sentences after raping 200 kids including baby in nappy.”

From age 19- 29, Richard Huckle, the grammar school-educated, church -going son of a British actress, posed as a volunteer at Christian orphanages all across Asia, while secretly molesting and raping some 200 or more children, ranging from babies to pre-teens. Huckle crowd-funded his crimes by selling a how-to manual on the dark web, where he bragged about his rapes on notorious paedo site, The Love Zone.

Huckle’s crimes are part of a tidal wave of  tourist/expat sex-crimes, perpetrated largely by males from Australia, the UK, Canada, the US and Europe.

This is the demographic that forms the growing market for the livestreaming of child-rape and abuse committed mostly against poor Asian children, many orphaned.

Now that’s a migrant crime wave you won’t hear about on Breitbart or FrontPageMagazine.

Obviously, I am not suggesting that white males are uniquely child molesters.

Anymore than any rational person would suggest that all inner-city blacks are violent or all Mexican or Muslim immigrants are rapists and jihadists.

But that is precisely what nativist sites on the right and sometimes the left consistently do.

If a pattern shows up, we are correct to point it out, regardless of ethnic sensibilities.

We are not correct to misinterpret the data to ascribe or insinuate unique biological propensities for crime to the perpetrators.

Keeping the big picture of elite manipulation in mind, we see a pattern of breakdown in all groups that follows the fault lines peculiar to their ethnic and socio-political history.

Western males have greater access to technology and more freedom to travel. They are also the product of  a culture that glorifies pornography and denigrates religious or social strictures against unlicensed sexual expression. They are the targets of aggressive feminism.

The combination might make the sexual exploitation of the weakest members of society more attractive to the worst instincts of some men.

The same holds true for the so-called migrant crime wave in the US and Europe.  Incentivize immigration with welfare; make it hard for legal, highly-skilled workers to immigrate and easy for illegal, low-skilled ones to; promote a culture of drugs, violence, and misogyny in popular culture; then throw in opportunistic interactions between criminal gangs and governments and you have a recipe for migrant crime- waves.

Race is not the cause, it should be obvious. It is culture, orchestrated from above.

If only white nationalists and black nationalists would see that.

 

Libertarian Republic On Steve Bannon’s Art Of The “New Deal”

Libertarian Republic gets it right:

Taking Bannon at his own word, and in the context of 1930s, it sounds a lot like the rhetoric coming from Germany pre-World War II. His rhetoric matches the anger, scapegoating, and emotional ploys spoken in the early days of Adolf Hitler‘s rise.

While this may seem pejorative, or hyperbolic, let us look at how the Mises Institute, an Austrian Economic think tank, explains 1930 Germany’s economic situation.

In the 1930s, Hitler was widely viewed as just another protectionist central planner who recognized the supposed failure of the free market and the need for nationally guided economic development. Proto-Keynesian socialist economist Joan Robinson wrote that “Hitler found a cure against unemployment before Keynes was finished explaining it.”

What were those economic policies? He suspended the gold standard, embarked on huge public-works programs like autobahns, protected industry from foreign competition, expanded credit, instituted jobs programs, bullied the private sector on prices and production decisions, vastly expanded the military, enforced capital controls, instituted family planning, penalized smoking, brought about national healthcare and unemployment insurance, imposed education standards, and eventually ran huge deficits. The Nazi interventionist program was essential to the regime’s rejection of the market economy and its embrace of socialism in one country.

Now compare that to how Bannon and Trump have described their plans and vision for having won the White House.

  1. 1 Trillion Dollar Infrastructure matches the huge public works programs
  2. “The globalists gutted the American working class and created a middle class in Asia,”  along with Trumps promises to coerce business back into the US, matches protection of industry from foreign competition,
  3. “With negative interest rates throughout the world, it’s the greatest opportunity to rebuild everything,” added to Trumps call to continue borrowing, matches expanding credit and the continuance of large deficits
  4. “Rebuild everything. Shipyards, iron works, get them all jacked up,” matches the instituted jobs programs
  5. Trumps possible control of capital through protectionist trade.
  6. The comment by Bannon about being in power for the next “50 years” sounds awfully similar to the how Nazi’s described the Third Reich. “It is our will that this state shall endure for a thousand years. We are happy to know that the future is ours entirely!” – Triumph of Will (1935)

This not to say that Bannon or Trump should be compared to Nazis or that they have come close to committing the acts against humanity that occurred in that period of history. Rather it is a simple question which compares the rhetoric being used by the two administrations in their rise to power. After all, this perspective is a simple look back at history, so as to learn from it and utilize it to spot potential issues in the future. If we willfully ignore details, even if just as a safety measure, then we leave ourselves at risk of missing what could’ve been right under our nose. Famed philosopher George Santayana once said, “Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it.”

Migrants To Europe Missed By Kosher “Alt-Right”

From The Jewish News of North California:

Nearly 5,000 people have become citizens of Spain or Portugal following the passing of laws in both countries on the naturalization of descendants of Sephardic Jews.

In Portugal, where a procedure for naturalization under the law went into effect last year, 292 applicants for naturalization have been approved, Catarina Madeira, a spokeswoman for the Portuguese Justice Ministry, said on Oct. 12.

Spain has naturalized 4,538 applicants for citizenship by Sephardim since the law went into effect last year. However, only three applicants were granted citizenship based on the actual law, the ABC daily newspaper reported on Oct. 16. Others were naturalized by a royal decree and not through the nondiscretionary procedure devised for the law.

According to ABC, the Spanish government in effect blocked the nondiscretionary procedure to avoid mass immigration by an estimated 30 million non-Jewish descendants of Sephardim
eligible under the law.

In both countries, the passing of the laws of return for Sephardim was described as an attempt to atone for the state and church-led mass expulsion, dispossession, torture and forced conversion into Christianity of Jews during the Inquisition — a period that began in the 15th century and ended with the disappearance and dispersion of what used to be one of the world’s largest Jewish communities.”

What that means is that Muslims and non-Muslim refugees fleeing countries bombed and destroyed by the US, Israel and their allies, are considered persona non grata in Europe and considered an “alien invasion.”

But Sephardi-descent Jews alone and no other Sephardi group (not Christians of Sephardi background, for example) are being imported by subverting the existing law and imposing a royal decree, ostensibly to compensate said Jewish imports for grievances they suffered over 500 years ago!

First, there is plenty of historical evidence to suggest that those grievances have been exaggerated and that the alleged perpetrators of the offense – some of the inquisitors, for instance – were themselves crypto-Jewish:

The Judaizing of Spanish Catholicism under the influence of the Marranos explains in part the popularity of Erasmus, precursor of Luther, in that country. At Rome, they seriously feared the emergence of a Jewish kingdom in Spain.17

A second problem superimposed itself on the religious problem. The Marranos had purchased for cash the public offices of several Spanish cities, crushing the old-Christian people under the weight of taxes and usury. There were some popular uprisings against the Marrano power at Toledo and Cuidad Real in 1449. The Marranos regained control of these cities in 1467 and massacred a great number of old-Christians. There were other bloodbaths in Castile (1468) and in Andalusia (1473). Spain was then on the threshold of a racial and religious civil war. This war, which would have been appalling, was avoided, thanks to the Inquisition.

Note that the Jewish converts were not always Marranos. Many among them were sincerely Catholic. Think of St. Teresa of Avila who was the granddaughter of a Marrano who, moreover, had been condemned by the Inquisition.

In fact, the truly converted Jews were the biggest enemies of the Marranos. The former rabbis Salomon Halevi, become bishop of Burgos under the name of Pablo de Santa Maria, and Jehoshua Ha-Lorqui, become Brother Jerome of the Holy Faith, wrote violent works against Judaism.

The historian Henry Kamen notes that the principal anti-Judaic polemicists were themselves ex-Jews. It was they who clamored for a tribunal of the Inquisition to distinguish between the false Jewish Christian converts and the sincere new Christians. The first Spanish Grand Inquisitor, Tomas de Torquemada, was himself a Jewish convert. In addition, it must be noted that many Marranos judaized simply through family tradition or by misappreciation of the Catholic faith. The Inquisition thus had to establish another distinction between the Marranos who willfully altered the integrity of the faith and those who were the victims of an insufficient catechization.”

But don’t hold your breath waiting for any so-called alt-right or libertarian site to talk about this particular state-mandated discrimination on the basis of religion and proscription of the right of movement of non-Jewish people.

 

 

 

Burqa Bans and Muslim Identification

Lew Rockwell makes a most peculiar comment:

Thousands of Muslims Protest Burqa Ban in Austria

I agree. Not only is it an offense against self-ownership, it’s a leftist attempt to hide the deliberate de-Austrianization of Austria. “

What? A leading libertarian activist claims that once the burqa is banned, you won’t be able to tell an Austrian….from a Muslim.

But here’s what.

Austrian is a type of nationality. Muslim refers to religious belief. The two are apples and oranges…or, more accurately, apples and cut flowers.

Two. Can anyone really tell nationality from an item of clothing?

Are there no French citizens in burkas?

Three. If, by Austrian, Rockwell meant “white” Austrian, well, a lot of Muslims from the Middle East are whiter than Europeans and a lot of native-born Austrians are dark-skinned, since they are second or third-generation immigrants.

Four. Even native-born non-immigrant Caucasian Austrians can be Muslims.

Five. Do all Muslims wear burqas? If the burqa were banned, Muslims who would have worn them, would still probably be identifiable as Muslims, from head-scarves, for instance.

Unless Rockwell really thinks that a ban on burqas means conservative Muslim women in Austria  will now be running around in shorts and tank-tops.

Does he really think that?

Rockwell is a smart guy.

So when I read such loopy arguments, I have to suspect some deeper agenda.

Banning the burka is a bad idea because it is a radical intrusion of the state into the realm of personal choice in an area where there is no valid community interest at stake that might conceivable justify some  voluntary compromise between individual choice and community interest.
A burqa could be a security threat, for example. In that case, the ban should be not on the burqa but more generally on any item of clothing that covers the face and body in such a way to make an interlocuter clearly vulnerable to assault in a limited number of  clearly defined public spaces.
But, in general, I think a ban on something that doesn’t obviously pose a threat to anyone else’s freedom or life is a bad way to go.

 

Reince Priebus’ Sephardic Roots?

Update:

Sally Sherrow, Priebus’ spouse is listed as Jewish on a number of anti-Jewish/Zionist sites. But I couldn’t get anything authoritative for it.  On one site, the name is said to be Irish and derived from the French word for wagon. On another,  it is given as a Scottish occupational name and listed as a variant of Shearer, derived from Scerare.

But, note, there is also a German version – Schearer,  a variant of Scharer, that is also spelt Scherer.

Scherer is both a gentile name and a common German-Jewish (Ashkenazy) name.  Given Priebus’ roots, I think it’s a good guess that Sally L. Sherrow is an Ashekenazy crypto herself.

Preibus went to law school at Miami, head quarters of the Russian Jewish mafia in the US.

ORIGINAL POST

From Ethnic Celebs.com, a brief analysis of Trump’s chief of staff’s ethnic descent:

Birth Name: Reinhold Richard Priebus

Place of Birth: Dover, New Jersey, U.S.

Date of Birth: March 18, 1972

Ethnicity:
*German, 1/8th English (father)
*Greek (mother)

Reince Priebus is an American attorney and political figure. He has been White House Chief of Staff, since January 20, 2017. He was previously Chair of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, from 2007 to 2011, and Chair of the Republican National Committee, from January 14, 2011 to January 19, 2017.

His father is of seven eighths German and one eighth English descent. His mother was born in Sudan, of Greek origin. Reince was raised Greek Orthodox.

Reince’s paternal grandfather was Reinhold W. Priebus (the son of Friedrich/Frederick “Fred” Priebus and Amilia/Amalia Kroll). Reince’s grandfather Reinhold was born in Michigan, to ethnic German parents from Russia. Friedrich was the son of John Priebus and Lesa. Amilia was the daughter of William Kroll and Frazina.

Reince’s paternal grandmother was Evelyn Mimmie Birch (the daughter of Christophe/Chris F. Birch and Ottilia/Ottilie Kugler). Evelyn was born in Wisconsin. Christophe was born in Wisconsin, to a Canadian father, William Birch, whose own parents were English, and to an American mother, Minnie Wirtschieffer, who was born in Wisconsin, to German parents. Reince’s great-grandmother Ottilia was an ethnic German from Russia.”

“Ethnic German from Russia” could well be Ashkenazy Jewish, but for now, let it remain a suspicion, for this is Priebus’ father’s side. It is the mother’s descent that decides Jewish/Khazar ethnicity.

Priebus’s mother is Dimitra Priebus whose original family is on the island of Lesbos. She is Greek, but met Priebus’ father in Sudan, while he was in the US army and stationed in Ethiopia.  Dimitra (nick-named Roula) Priebus had until then spent most of her life in Khartoum, where she worked in the American embassy.  Today, she is a real estate agent in Wisconsin.

Priebus’ father, Richard Priebus,  is described as a (former?) union electrician and in some places also as a real estate agent.

As a young man, Reince Priebus himself interned with the NAACP.

Employee unions and the NAACP sound more liberal than conservative.

Dimitra Priebus’ maiden name is Pitsiladis.

Her family is from Mytilene, the capital of the island of Lesvos and the seat of a metropolitan bishop of the Greek Orthodox church.

According to Wikipedia, in 1170, Benjamin of Tudela established ten small Jewish communities in Lesbos, but by 1930 there were only a hundred or so Jewish people left.

So, while Roula Priebus was born in the Sudan,  which is home a to a number of European expats, her ancestral home was on the island of Lesvos, from which we get the word lesbian. Lesvos is also well-known for the production of the wine, ouzo.

In fact, Roula Priebus’ family name of Pitsiladi is connected with one of several companies involved in the production of the best ouzo, Ouzo plomari.

Is  Roula Priebus from the ouzo-making Pitsiladis family? If so, the chances are she is a crypto-Jew, a donmeh of some kind.

Here’s why.

The word ouzo is itself derived from a Turkish word, uzum, meaning grapes in Turkey.

A more likely explanation however gives Sir G. Clauson in his book “An Etymological Dictionary of Pre-Thirteenth Century Turkish”, Oxford 1972. At page 288 he says that the word “ouzo” derives from the word “uzum”, which means grapes in Turkish.”

The Pitsiladis distillery was founded by one Paniyotis Pitsiladis from Pergamos in Asia Minor, who came to Plomari in the 19th century:

In the middle of the 19th century, Panayiotis Pitsiladis arrived to [sic] Plomari from Pergamos in Asia Minor and founded his first distillery by the river.
In 1892 he received the official operating license from the Turkish state and started to produce Ouzo Plomariou Pitsiladis with his sons.

 Pergamos  is the current Turkish town of  Bergamos.

In pre-Christian and Roman times, it was the site of flourishing and at times debauched cults of the pagan gods, Jupiter, Dionysos, and Venus, as well as of Asklepion, the healing snake-god.

Pergamom was also the seat of imperial power in Asia and later the site of one of several important New Testament churches.

In the Revelation of St. John,  Christ addresses the fledgling church at Pergamos (Pergamum) thus:

Revelation 2:12-17 …..’And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges; I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.”

In 92 AD, Antipas, the saintly bishop of Pergamum, was roasted alive  in a bronze bull at the top of a 40-ft altar to Jupiter, as I previously blogged.

In that same blog post I explained why I thought that Jesus’ phrase “seat of Satan” referred to the imperial cult that saw the Roman emperor as god and demanded the submission of Christians to him.

I argued that a study of the types of Satan in the Bible (Nimrod, the King of Tyre, Antiochus Epiphanes, Herod)  showed that it was power aspiring to Godhead, rather than simply worship of other gods, that was dubbed Satanic.

According to wikipedia:

The name Mytilene itself seems to be of Hittite origin. According to Homer‘s Iliad, however, Lesbos was part of the kingdom of Priam in what is now Turkey. Much work remains to be done to determine just what was happening and when. In Middle Ages, it was under Byzantine and then Genoese rule. Lesbos was conquered by the Ottoman Empire in 1462. The Ottomans then ruled the island until the First Balkan War in 1912, when it became part of the Kingdom of Greece.”

With such a history, there would be widespread Turkish and most likely donmeh Jewish descent among  Greeks in Mytilene. The Hittites were one of several people who intermarried with the Edomites, as the descendants of the Biblical Esau, were known.  From this Edomite strain descends the “mixed multitude” that is now inaccurately termed Jewish.

If Roula Priebus does belong to the ouzo-making family of Pitsiladis, the US would have a “white nationalist” president who is really of Ashkenazy extraction, descended from the Drumpfs from the wine-making heart of Germany… and we would have a chief-of-staff also apparently of Sephardic (maternal) heritage, descended from a crypto-Jewish/Turkish (donmeh) family, from the  wine-making heart of the Aegean.

 

 

Is Steve Bannon A Crypto-Jew?

Is the czar of all things anti-Semitic and white nationalist in the Trump administration Ashkenazy  himself?

On the face of it, Steve Bannon sounds like an Anglo-Saxon name.

But this is the matrix and nothing is as it seems.

So I dug.

And I came up with this:

Stephen is of course both a gentile and a Jewish name.

But Bannon also appears as a name used by Jews at Jewish Genealogy..

Bannon is both Irish…and Semitic:

English surname used as a (mostly) male name. Anglicised form of the Old Gaelic Irish surname O Banain, which means “son of the fair-haired one”. This is pronounced BANN-uhn.

Jewish surname used as a male name. It comes from a Semitic root meaning “white” – coincidentally, the same meaning as the English/Irish surname.

[Lila: Nice touch that]

This is pronounced bah-NON.

Banon is one of the characters in the role playing game “Final Fantasy VI”.

Bannon’s Irish-Catholic working class background already makes him a natural ally of the Jews.

But the derivations of his last name added to his mother’s maiden name, Herr, makes me suspect he is more than just  a shabbos goy.

He is Judaic himself.

Wikipedia:

Stephen Kevin Bannon was born on November 27, 1953, in Norfolk, Virginia, to Doris (neé Herr) and Martin Bannon, a telephone lineman.[26][27] His working class, Irish Catholic family were pro-Kennedy, pro-union Democrats.

Bannon’s mother’s name Herr is both High German and Ashkenazy and means lord or master or one who serves the lord of the manor or gives himself the airs of a lord.

Avatanyu.com lists it as a German-Jewish name.

The “white nationalist anti-semite” Bannon is yet another Khazar fraud redirecting popular anger away from the Khazar/Israeli elites and toward soft targets  – third-world immigrants and Muslims.

 

Steve Bannon’s Anti-Indian Immigration Policy

From The Economic Times:

US President Donald Trump’s executive orders restricting entry into the country and reports of curbs being planned on foreign students and workers are worrying Indians at colleges there. Others are reconsidering plans for higher education in the US considering the hostile reception that awaits them. The president could scrap a measure that allows some students to stay on in the US for three years after getting their degree, it’s been reported by Vox.com and others.

“I was looking to use that as a runway to set up a technology startup,” said the MIT student cited above. “Doing it in one year will be incredibly hard. It complicates things for those who want to pursue entrepreneurship.”

That worry is despite the fact that those from MIT, especially PhDs, are highly coveted by employers and tend to get annual pay upwards of $90,000 after graduation.

Optional practical training (OPT) currently allows graduates with

science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) degrees to stay in the US for up to three years after graduating from college. Curtailing that period will hurt the plans of some 165,918 Indian students in the US with about three-fourths of them being in STEM programmes.

Possible changes to H-1B visa rules and key Trump aide Stephen Bannon’s apparent antipathy toward South Asians are also preying on the minds of students. “

 

Of course, faux “anti-Semite” Steve Bannon  is actually an Israel-first voice of the  kosher-led alt-right .

 

Others of his ilk are Jared Taylor and the American Renaissance and Paul Gottfried at Lew Rockwell.

Bannon, a former military/intel operative and graduate of spy-laden Virginia Tech – is the new instrument of the Khazar elite’s war on India.

This is very much in keeping with the elite cabal’s fear of being out-competed by Indians.

On Wall Street, in the aftermath of the 2008-09 collapse, this fear led to the take-down of minor Indian wrong-doers on weak charges of “insider-trading,” instead of the investigation of the Khazar financial mafia that perpetrated global financial mayhem.

At elite campuses, it has led to a sustained policy of discrimination against Asians, especially Indians (for instance, see this brave article by one Jewish writer), who, where the playing field is level (for eg. at Caltech and other elite STEM institutions), have regularly outperformed Ashkenazi Jews.

Now,  via government policy, the “uppity injuns” are being set straight.

Steve Bannon, who poses as a white gentile nationalist, is a Khazar  hit-man whose job is to make “white Christians” look like the primary “anti-Semitic” axe-wielders rather than a golem of the Jews, and make dumb Indians believe that the Khazar mafia is their best friend and only protection against racist white gentiles.

This follows the false-flag playbook, wherein terror attacks are always carried out by Muslims who shout “Allahu Akbar” repeatedly and carefully leave behind passports and ID cards in visible positions.

Most of the Islamo-lone-nuts turn out to have intelligence backgrounds with  Western agencies.

Likewise, Mr. Bannon, whose immigration policies are ostensibly about “protecting American jobs,” is in reality attacking Indian tech companies, start-ups,  scientists, and students….continuing the attack begun by the left-liberal wing of the globalist cabal some years ago.

Note, however, that the soon-to-be-unloaded students were (and still are being) eagerly solicited for their hard-earned money in promotions run all over the Indian papers.

Consider also that the Indian rupee has weakened by five times in the last decade, ever since India became a “friend” of the US and Israel.

Some friend.

Moreover,  Indian salaries are far lower than US salaries, so the sums solicited are a far greater proportion of the savings of Indians than they are of Americans (who never pay full price in any case).

But that has not stopped drooling British, Australian, and American universities running their pimping ads.

I would strongly advise students suckered in by the ads to use some of their tuition money to hire as vicious a legal attack-dog they can find and go after the universities for fraud, misrepresentation, price-gouging, price-fixing,  discrimination and anything else in the law-books.

Make them pay.

Then, let Mr. Modi take a page out of his so-called friend (read, master) Trump’s book and BAN American, British, and Australian universities, companies, and workers in India.

If Modi wont’ do it then it’s time to ban Mr. Modi and boycott everything Anglo-American or Israeli-made or bred.

If we are going to have economic war, let’s have it.

No open borders for STEM students? Then no “open borders” for Foreign Direct Investment, Walmart, Amazon, American and Israeli tourists, NGO’s,  American agribusiness, Google, American porn and Israel-run drugs, which spew across borders too.

And sayonora to all those retired Americans, Aussies, Brits, and Europeans – NEVER called migrants – parking their well-cushioned and often bare bottoms on beaches and 5-star hotels in third-world countries, living like the royalty they never were in their own countries, running drug and sex rings, preying on native children, bilking the tax man at home and in their “adopted” countries (who didn’t invite them),  providing cover for Western intelligence, if not aiding and abetting, spying and stealing from native businesses and native culture, while inveighing against them.

Those are never MIGRANTS, are they?

That’s never a MIGRANT invasion, is it?

What is colonial history but the story of Europe’s migrant INVASION of the rest of the world?

Deport the lot back to their countries, I say, and take back the US, Australia, New Zealand, South America, while you’re at it.

Let’s send back ALL the immigrants, not just some.

Then let’s see just how “over-populated,” “crowded” and “third-world” the West will look.

That is, if it can function at all, minus its immigrants.

 

 

 

Tamil Nadu Government Threatens Arrest Of Anti-Vaxxers

Times of India:

The state health department has threatened to initiate legal action against those sending panic messages advising people to boycott the coming massive measles-rubella vaccine drive in which nearly 1.8 crore children between 9 months and 15 years will be vaccinated in schools and primary health centres from February 6.

[Lila: around 237,000 children]

The department has the powers to persuade parents to vaccinate their children, said director of public health Dr K Kolandaisamy.

In the past one week, there has been a flood of messages on social media urging parents not to send their children for vaccination in schools and some suggest that they should not send their children to school on days scheduled for vaccinations……

“We are well within our powers even to arrest people who are a hindrance to the success of this scheme. We are working with the cybercrime team to track such panic messages. The scheme is being launched to eliminate the virus from the environment,” he said.”

 

New Notes: 50% Security Features Already Counterfeited

More evidence from the Hindu that Demonetization was a either one of the most colossal blunders of modern Indian history or a sophisticated attack on the Indian economy:

The Border Security Force (BSF) and the National Investigation Agency (NIA) intercepted four consignments of  2000 notes between December 2016 and January this year from areas near Malda district.

With the quality of the fakes improving over time, the seizure has set alarm bells ringing for intelligence agencies and security forces.

“The notes have copied the geometric patterns and the colour scheme both on obverse and the reverse side including watermark, and the exclusive number pattern of the 2000 currency. Unlike samples seized elsewhere which were scanned or colour photocopies, these have been printed using sophisticated dyes,” a senior security officer said.

More than half of the 17 RBI-listed security features have been replicated.”

The notes were seized from Mohammad Ashraful and Ripon Sheikh from Malda district.

Please note that Malda district is in West Bengal. It shares a 223 km in total international border with Bangladesh and is a hub of the fake currency racket.

This 12 sq-km triangle with 18 villages, 40km from Malda town, have turned into the entry point of 40% fake Indian notes being pumped into the country through the porous border.

Malda, particularly the three Kaliachak blocks, have always been known as the smuggling point for fake currencies, but the situation has taken a turn for the worse in the past five years. According to a recent NIA report, 80% fake currencies are sneaked into the country through the 172-km porous border along Malda district, and 55-60% of the consignments from Bangladesh are circulated from the villages in 12 sq-km triangle.”

While demonetization had a temporary effect on Malda’s flourishing fake currency business,  it was expected that the trade would resume in the space of 1-3 months.

“We are looking at a time frame of one month to three months before we make the first seizure of a fresh consignment of fake Indian currency, this time most likely Rs 100 notes,” said a senior BSF officer who did not want to be identified.”

But it’s not the 100, but the  new 2000, that has had half the security features successfully faked. Which leads one to question the whole rationale of demo itself, because a large bill of that kind would be much more attractive to counterfeiters in the first place.

Meanwhile the network of couriers dispersing the notes continues:

“The movement is done in chains,” explained a security official who did not want to be identified. “From the point of origin of the consignment in Bangladesh to the destination in Kaliachawk, there would be no less than 20 to 25 couriers in each chain. Each person in the chain normally covers a distance of 100 meters to hand over the consignment to the next one in the chain. It is an intricate network and very difficult to trap and dismantle.”

 

 

DARPA’s Dark History

With evidence of the hand of DARPA behind the Jallikattu protests in Tamil Nadu, a review of its history is in order.

From Activist Post:

  Cloaked in clandestine secrecy, DARPA has been called the “Oh God Why” branch of the Department of Defense. In the fiscal year of 2015, their requested budget was $2.91 billion, which doesn’t include classified and black budgets. Even still, through Freedom of Information Act requests and intrepid journalism, some of the historical truths and future plans of this nebulous government agency have come to light in recent years.

15. DARPA was responsible for the creation and weaponization of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War.

Back in 1961, when DARPA was called ARPA, the agency ran a toxicology branch at Fort Detrick, where it spearheaded one of the most controversial weapons programs in U.S. history. Project Agile utilized Agent Orange as a part of their highly classified defoliation and food crop poisoning efforts in the jungles of Vietnam. Their use of Agent Orange, which was manufactured by nine wartime government contractors, including Monsanto, may be responsible for cancer, nervous disorders, and skin cancer in 2.8 million servicemen who returned from Vietnam. The U.S. defoliation program directly killed about 400,000 Vietnamese, caused half a million children to be born with birth defects, and may be the cause of cancer in over 2 million more Vietnamese people.

President John F. Kennedy signed off on DARPA’s costly, deadly and, ultimately, ineffective program.

14. Four nuclear bombs were detonated during the Cuban Missile Crisis

It’s widely believed that nuclear weapons were not used during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Contrarily, with Eisenhower’s test ban failing, the United States actually detonated two nuclear weapons — code-named Checkmate and Bluegill Triple Prime — in space at the height of of tension in October of 1962. Then they tested two more bombs.

ARPA, at the behest of Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara, launched this effort to test an atmospheric nuclear defense shield known as the Christofilos Effect.

13. DARPA ostracized any scientist who discussed ethics or morality with regard to the use of nuclear weapons.

After the horror of witnessing the first hydrogen bomb test, which, in its initial blast had many scientists afraid the atmosphere was catching on fire, Robert Oppenheimer was forced into exile after expressing moral concerns over continued nuclear weapons development. Thereafter, it became official DARPA policy to not discuss ethical issues related to the use of nuclear weapons in warfare.

(Source: The Pentagon’s Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America’s Top Secret Military Research Agency.)

12. DARPA scientists drew up plans to nuke the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the Vietnam War.

Then Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara called on the JASON scientists — at one time a dominant and prolific division within DARPA — to determine whether it was possible to take out the Ho Chi Minh Trail with nuclear weapons. Military leaders considered the disabling of this important strategic path the preeminent way for the United States to fatally weaken the Viet Cong insurgency.

However, in this rare instance of restraint, the JASON scientists determined it was impractical to use nuclear weapons for this purpose. They stated:

At least one TNW [tactical nuclear weapon] is required for each target, and the targets are mostly small and fleeting. A reasonable guess at the order of magnitude of weapons requirements … would be ten per day or 3000 per year.

11. DARPA developed weapons specifically for the purpose of brutally incapacitating anti-war demonstrators.

At the peak of the anti-Vietnam War fervor in 1968, then-ARPA scientists looked for methods of comprehensively dispersing the crowds that gathered in huge numbers to peacefully protest the war. The research and implementation of these methods included tear gas, phosgene oxide (which can cause temporary blindness), anticholinergics (which block nerve impulses), emetic agents (chemicals that induce vomiting), non-lethal grenades, poisoned tranquilizing darts, lasers, eardrum-shattering loud noises, and tagging (using markings only visible in ultraviolet light) for later apprehension.

“Nonlethal weapons are generally intended to prevent an individual from engaging in undesirable acts,” wrote the authors of a seminal report, which was only recently declassified.

The final crowd control effort, which persists today, sanctioned the upgrading of state police arsenals with military-grade equipment. The Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968 created the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA), a federal agency whose sole purpose was to militarize local police forces.

(Source: The Pentagon’s Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America’s Top Secret Military Research Agency.)

10. In 2008, the NSA and DARPA collaborated for a covert data mining campaign called Project Reynard, which monitored millions of World of Warcraft users.

Project Reynard came at the first peak of MMO gaming and sought to track the online behavior of 10 million monthly subscribers to the World of Warcraft. This program wasn’t revealed to the public until 2013, when Edward Snowden disclosed top secret documents related to governmental abuses of power.

DARPA scientists configured a Video Analysis and Content Extraction tool, as well as something called Knowledge Discovery and Dissemination, so that Reynard was “automatically detecting suspicious behavior and actions in the virtual world.”

9. DARPA’s anti-polio vaccination campaign exposed millions of Americans to the “cryptic human infection” of monkey virus.

In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the JASON scientists were tasked with biological warfare defense. Their research produced a highly classified controversial vaccination campaign that exposed 98 million people to the “cryptic human infection” of monkey virus, known as Simian virus 40 (SV40).

No one was told of the risk and, even today, rancorous debate over the extent of the danger persists. Scientists have reported that the SV40 virus is found in cancerous human tumors.

Writing on the nature of a stealth virus, or ‘silent loads,’ in biological warfare, one Jason microbiologist wrote:

The basic idea behind a stealth virus is to produce a tightly regulated, cryptic viral infection, using a vector that can enter and spread in human cells, remaining resident for lengthy periods without detectable harm … [a population could be] slowly pre-infected with a stealth virus over an extended period, possibly years, and then synchronously triggered.

(Source: The Pentagon’s Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America’s Top Secret Military Research Agency.)

8. DARPA’s Defense Sciences Office was controlled by military Transhumanist, Michael Goldblatt, a McDonald’s employee.

Michael Goldblatt, who believes that humans will end up controlling their own evolution with technology, came to DARPA in 1999 with a vision for military-based Transhumanism. His plans included super-soldiers donning exoskeletons and the use of biotech to manufacture pain vaccines and rapid blood clotting for “rapid healing” troops. He also wanted to create the “24/7 soldier,” who requires little to no sleep on the battlefield.

He also happened to have served as chief science officer and vice president of research for McDonald’s.

7. DARPA’S Dark Winter war game simulated a biological terrorist attack and may have contributed to a biowarfare hysteria that paved the way for the Iraq war.

Dark Winter was a fictitious exercise developed by four organizations overseen by DARPA, who wanted to create a hypothetical biological terrorist attack and then assess military reactions to the scenario. The premise, which was pitched to Dick Cheney in 2001, before 9/11, involved a smallpox outbreak in Oklahoma City. The game played out over thirteen days, during which time the disease spread to 25 states and 15 other countries. With no response or vaccine available, a million people died within weeks.

As a result, the Congressional Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism stated,

To date, the U.S. government has invested most of its nonproliferation efforts and diplomatic capital in preventing nuclear terrorism. The commission believes that it should make the more likely threat — bioterrorism — a higher priority.

Since Dark Winter, the government has spent more than $60 billion on biodefense. This number, of course, doesn’t tabulate the cost of the war in Iraq, the justification of which was greatly buoyed by fear-mongering over Saddam Hussein’s fictitious chemical and biological warfare capacities.

6. DARPA sponsored biosurveillance program Bio-ALIRT, which collected the medical records of millions of Americans without their knowledge or consent.

Even before 9/11 sent government agencies into Orwellian overdrive, DARPA had been leveraging a surveillance program known as Bio-ALIRT, for Bio-Event Advanced Leading Indicator Recognition Technology. Supercomputers did the job, scanning all available databases of medical records of American citizens.

5. Under the umbrella of a system known as Total Information Awareness, DARPA spearheaded many of the surveillance programs abused by the NSA.

DARPA’s Total Information Awareness concept created a veritable buffet of advanced surveillance and data mining programs, many of which ultimately were folded into NSA’s PRISM. We now know that PRISM culled citizens’ personal data from companies like Microsoft, Google, and Facebook, and was later leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden. Total Information Awareness programs include:

Evidence Extraction and Link Discovery program (EELD) – Sole purpose is to gather as much information about both terror suspects and average American citizens as possible, using“phone records, computer searches, credit card receipts, parking receipts, books checked out of the library, films rented, and more.”Goal is to assess megadata on 285 million people a day in real-time.

Scalable Social Network Analysis (SSNA) – Program “monitors telephone calls, conference calls, and ATM withdrawals … also sought to develop a far more invasive surveillance technology.”

Activity Recognition and Monitoring (ARM) – With England’s CCTV surveillance cameras as a model, ARM created a massive database of people going about their everyday lives. Using advanced facial recognition software, the program highlighted any behavior that was outside the realm of a preprogrammed “ordinary,” the definition of which remains classified.

Deep Exploration and Filtering of Text (DEFT) – Operating on a 28 million dollar budget, this program utilizes advanced computer algorithms to analyze text-based messages in all shapes and forms, from text messages to reports, with the aim being to comprehend “implied and hidden meanings through probabilistic inference.” The full use of DEFT in the United States is classified.

Nexus 7 – With a classified budget, this particularly murky program studies and tracks social network content. First used in Afghanistan in a defense capacity, when aimed at domestic networks the use of the program is a mystery.

(Source: The Pentagon’s Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America’s Top Secret Military Research Agency.)

4. DARPA’S “culture-centric warfare” program conscripted social scientists and anthropologists into the Iraq war as mercenaries.

Operating under the idea that anthropologists would facilitate a more humane war effort, DARPA’S Human Terrain System sought to promote “honorable warfare” in its Iraq counterinsurgency efforts. This lead to the gruesome death of at least one social scientist. On the whole, the program seems to have muddled the already arcane purpose of combat forces in Iraq with a ‘hearts and minds’ type of ideology. It reminded some analysts of internal military propaganda from the Vietnam War.

After [Human Terrain System] training,” DARPA stated, “soldiers will be able to approach and engage strangers in unfamiliar social environments, orient to unfamiliar patterns of behavior, recover from social mistakes, de-escalate conflict, rigorously practice transition in and out of force situations and engage in the process of discovering and adapting to previously unknown ‘rules of the game’ encountered in social engagements.

3. DARPA believes the future of war involves animal cyborgs and insect-inspired drone technology.

The Stealthy Insect Sensor Project is part of a long-standing effort to use bees in war, particularly as bomb locators. It started in 1999 and evolved into the development of insect-inspired drones, which are known as micro air vehicles (MAVs). Eventually, DARPA plans for its “biohybrids” to be part animal, part machine cyborgs, which, according to Annie Jacobsen, author of The Pentagon’s Brain: An Uncensored History of DARPA, America’s Top Secret Military Research Agency, will “fly, swim, crawl, walk, run, and swarm.”

The science fueling this futuristic vision is nanobiology. Most of the nanobiology applications DARPA is developing are classified. However, in an interview with Coast to Coast AM, Jacobsen said,

DARPA has already succeeded in creating a rat that will be steered by remote control by implanting an electrode in its brain.

And it’s done the same thing with a moth which is really remarkable because the scientists implanted the electrodes in the pupa stage of the moth when it was still a worm! And then it transformed into having wings, and those tiny little micro-sensors transformed with the moth and the DARPA scientists were able to steer that moth.

Imagine following that idea through — DARPA is moving toward engineering humans for war.

2. DARPA’s Narrative Networks program developed classified techniques used to manipulate trust in humans.

For its Narrative Networks (N2) program, DARPA collaborated with a CIA agency called the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency (IARPA) to develop methods of overwriting messages in the human mind. In an article for phys.org entitled “DARPA looking to master propaganda via Narrative Networks,” the program was described as having two parts: first, to understand what happens in the human mind when someone sees or hears a message; second, to figure out how to control how the brain interprets the message.

One researcher described Narrative Networks as an attempt to “detect narrative influence … [for the] prevention of negative behavioral outcomes … and generation of positive behavioral outcomes, such as building trust.”

The government is already trying to control the message, so why not have the science to do it in a systematic way?

1. Hunter-killer robots, guided by advanced artificial intelligence, will wage the wars of the future.

Despite the grand mystery of exactly what DARPA is currently working on, which of course is deeply classified, there have been relatively unambiguous signals that it involves artificial intelligence and the outsourcing of military operations to machines. The future of war will see the rise of unmanned autonomous drones, referred to as hunter-killer robots.

In 2011, the Defense Department released a document entitled “Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap,” which laid out a cursory overview of the next couple decades. It unequivocally states there will be fully self-governing autonomous machines … soon. Currently, DARPA is working on creating an artificial brain.

According to the undersecretary of defense Ashton B. Carter in 2010:

Dramatic progress in supporting technologies suggests that unprecedented, perhaps unimagined degrees of autonomy can be introduced into current and future military systems.

Perhaps the next great space race is taking place right now in top secret labs all across the world. This time the players include the private sector, too, as Google’s Ray Kurzweil is also trying to create an artificial brain.

Jallikattu Protests: Nachiket Mor & DARPA Links

A comment on this blog leads to new insight on what’s behind the huge, suspiciously well-organized pro-Jallikattu protests in Tamil Nadu in 2017:

Microsoft’s 2015  crowd mobilization report using mobile phone and social media in Tamil Nadu and Delhi.

That report was in turn based on earlier research summarized in a pdf entitled Vashishta-INTERACTIONS2015″

which concludes as follows:

“This paper presents the first crowd mobilization challenge conducted in India, a developing country context where effective social mobilization is broader and more inclusive than the rich country settings studied previously. We customized the design of the challenge to incorporate local languages and to enable participation at very low cost by anyone with access to a basic mobile phone. The challenge was successful in attracting broad participation, spanning 7,700 participants from all across India in less than a day.

While many participants utilized Internet technologies, we also found interesting usage
of SMS, voice, and face-to-face communications that offered benefits in the Indian context. Unlike previous social mobilization contests, participants relied primarily on their personal networks, and often recruited team members without offering any financial incentives. We synthesize our lessons learned as a set of recommendations to help
future crowd mobilization challenges extend their reach into low-income, offline envi-
ronments.”
These crowd mobilizations experiments came out of research begun by DARPA as early as 2009, when, as I’ve blogged repeatedly, a whole new generation of intelligence projects began, including Wikileaks.
DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is now actually headed by an Indian:
Since then, DARPA—now headed by India-born Caltech alumna Arati  Prabhakar—has driven innovation using a small, nimble team of 200 persons and delivered to the world technology ranging from the internet to hand-held GPS systems and is now focused on fields as diverse as mathematics, synthetic biology, and neuro-technology. What is critical is that it “does not perform its engineering alchemy in isolation”.
The article quoted above laments that India, which delivers high quality space, engineering, and medical research at a fraction of the cost that the US does, still doesn’t have an equivalent to DARPA.
The problem with that, as the author doesn’t realize, is that the Indians at the helm of such agencies, including Mor and Prabhakar, are simply tools used by larger interests.
And likewise, any “Indian platform” like the posited INDRA, will only be a means by which India’s low-cost, high-power advances are stolen, culled, and otherwise used to profit the Western oligarchy, while ordinary Indians themselves will be enslaved by “their government” (or rather, the financial cabal for which the government now fronts) technologically.
This has already happened, with American partnerships and joint ventures being thrust on Indian universities and promoted to Indian students, ostensibly for bringing local institutions up  to international standards, but, in actual fact,  for IP theft.
Many of these recently developed institutions, like Vellore Institute of Technology,  receive enormous promotion from left-wing English language papers like the Hindu.
It would be a reasonable guess that, with student bodies drawn from neighboring countries, they will be infiltrated by Chinese, US, and other intelligence agents.
Meanwhile, Microsoft, as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,  are behind the push toward “cashless” in India.
Gates had already been a big player in computer systems used in the public sector in the country, as well in so-called philanthropic efforts implementing the UN Millennium goals, the ultimate aim of which – even with the most benign interpretation –  is global population control.
Previous posts (see below) have shown the Gates/NWO  hand behind demonetization in India.

On Nachiket Mor and the Gates Foundation’s role in Demonetization:

4. Na(chiket) Mo(r) Hatao, Desh Bachao

COMMENT from Shanty Mathew at Inkstainedmind.blogspot.in.

“THIS MIGHT JUST BE SHEER COINCIDENCE… But in September 2015, Microsoft India released a report on how they experimented with “Crowd Mobilization” via mobile phone and social media in Tamil Nadu and Delhi. The experiment was modeled around work done earlier by DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The report with its vague and amorphous objectives and conclusions is available here (pdf) http://preview.tinyurl.com/j75pq7u

Remember, Nachiket Mor Country Director of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation India is from TN. (Btw, I want to thank you for bringing up that name.)

Lila: Thanks, and here is the post in which I brought it up.

As you can see, I have blogged about his connection to Aadhar as well.

I didn’t catch the Jallikattu link, but I knew the whole protest was a Rothschild creation, because of the links to the Ford Foundation, the appeal to a UN mandate,  the coordination with Trump’s inauguration, simultaneous appearance of world-wide anti-Trump feminist protests, and also the symbolism of the bull, in relation to Shiva-Shakti.]

COMMENT (continued)

Nachiket Mor, it would seem, is both omniscient, omnipresent, and yet invisible!!!

He was in the TAGUP Committee headed by Nanadan Nilekani which brought up the idea of monopolistic NIUs (National Information Utilities) to leverage Aadhaar. He was, of course, head of the RBI’s Mor Committee which brought out the report laid the roadmap for “cashless payment economy” in India. And he is currently sitting on the board of the RBI and as Director of BMGF.

It would be really interesting to know whose hands are up this sock puppet!”

I Was Wrong About Trump

I was wrong about Trump.

Not that he isn’t a shill for the financial cartel and another face of the elites. Yes, he is all that.

But I was wrong that the election was just six of one, half a dozen of the other.

So far, at least, that’s not been the case.

All the goody-two-shoes bombing-for-their-own-good of Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria, apparently qualified Obama as a “decent” man and great president to our liberal brethren.

Comes Trump who hasn’t bombed a soul but merely – and quite sensibly- wants to keep out refugees from countries that are considered enemies of the US, and the caterwauling can be heard around the solar system.

What? You think a sovereign nation has the right to determine who enters its borders and wants to keep out people who might – quite justifiably in my opinion – want to sock it to Americans for what’s been done to them?

You madman, you!

And that wall. Sure, it’s a boondoggle. But then what isn’t?

Not that I personally am in favor of stopping Mexicans crossing the border to work illegally.

But along with workers, come gangs, revanchist groups, gun-running, drugs, and sex-trafficking. And subsidies to illegals that have bust the budgets of border states.

A virtual wall would be more efficient and cheaper, but I personally prefer concrete, if for nothing more than the symbolism of a Great Wall Of Mehiko.

True, I will no longer be able to dreamily plot routes that avoid passport checks – a favorite hobby of a frequent traveler. Sailing across an unmanned southern border  will soon be an impossibility. I dread to think of the logistics, the dust thrown up, the flora and fauna diving for cover.

But all leaders have their follies and the ancient Egyptians probably hated the building of the pyramids as well.

Let Trump have his.

Meanwhile,  there’s the whole LBGTQ project struck right off the official website; the climate-change agenda erased; funding withdrawn for US tax-payer subsidized abortions; Obama care reversed (at least somewhat); the massacre of Christians in the Middle East an actual thing in the news….

I am not naive enough to believe all this doesn’t still conceal another chapter in the globalist agenda.  It does.

But common sense and the people who pay the bills have just made a come-back, short-lived, as it may be.

I, for one, am grateful.

Now, about FATCA…

 

 

 

 

Pro-Jallikattu Protest Hijacked By Violent Groups

This Hindustan Times report confirms some of the theories I’ve floated about the “Tamil Spring” Jallikattu protests.

It turns out they were well-organized; they did spring from deeper discontents than Jallikattu alone; there were secessionist, communal, and anti-national groups intent on sabotaging them; there is friction between the Tamil identity parties themselves:

One group of protesters ran inside the Parthasarathy Temple close to the beach and rolled a Sintex water tank towards the police. A car was set on fire. Mob frenzy was at its peak as protesters set fire to vehicles at will.Unverified videos of policemen damaging vehicles and setting fire to an auto rickshaw too began doing the rounds on social media. The city commissioner of police, S George, denied any use of force, saying those videos were morphed, at a press meet on January 23.

Around midnight, police had to fire blanks in the air in the heart of the city to disperse rowdy elements. According to the Chennai police, over 50 people were injured, 40 police personnel wounded and 400 police vehicles and a police station torched.

……..By 20th January, senior police officials had begun murmuring about “anti-social elements” and “fringe groups”.

“This is too organised,” said one senior police official at the time. “There are people making arrangements for food and water in a very systematic manner. In the beginning, there were only a small group of people belonging to fundamentalist Islamic groups. I saw them on the first day. There are students here now, but there is a group of people working quietly behind the scenes, and this includes extreme Left wing groups and the pro-Tamil groups,” he said.

These suspicions were further confirmed by January 21. Speaking to Hindustan Times, one of the key protesters for Jallikattu, Tirupur-based Karthikeyan Sivasenapathy, managing trustee of the Senapathy Kangeyam Cattle Research Foundation, said that genuine student protests had been hijacked by fringe elements. “By the evening of 22nd January, most of the students had left,” claimed Sivasenapathy.

“Most villagers and students in Madurai left for home by the morning of 23rd January,” said another senior police officer. “What followed was a crackdown on the combined strength of members of extreme Left-wing outfits, communal outfits, members of some political parties and pro-Tamil outfits. In fact, we have only recently received intelligence that many of these groups met in Coimbatore at least three months ago to plan a situation like this,” he said. Three police officers confirmed this separately to this reporter…….

Sources within the bureaucracy also say that these intelligence inputs did not reach the chief minister. Due to a deepening power struggle between AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala and CM OPS, the intelligence inputs are reportedly going to Sasikala, bypassing Panneerselvam. Chennai, as a result, witnessed violence like never before.Hijacking a protest?

…..By January 2016, the movement demanding Jallikattu had garnered a lot of attention, especially through social media. By June 2016, a music video composed and released by Adhi, linking Jallikattu with Tamil pride went viral, with over six million views on YouTube.

“Adhi’s music video was not just about Tamil pride but also about organic farming and native breeds,” said Sivasenapathy. “All political parties in Tamil Nadu failed to see the huge resentment among the people, and Jallikattu caught their imagination. People are fed up with the system and the leaders,” he said.

With the Supreme Court upholding the ban on the sport in November 2016 and again refusing to announce its verdict before Pongal (usually on 14th January), tempers flared.

As protests continued, the team of three who appeared to be the “leaders” of the movement were called by the state and Centre for talks on how to resolve the situation. Sivasenapathy, Rajasekar and Adhi were flown to Delhi where they met with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, home minister Rajnath Singh and other officials on January 20. A draft ordinance was quickly prepared and the Centre, the President and the Tamil Nadu governor approved and signed it by January 21. The decks were cleared for Jallikattu, at least for this year.

A change in mood

Sivasenapathy claims that when he returned to Marina Beach on January 21 to deliver the good news to protesters that they had won the battle, the mood was palpably different…

Thirumurugan Gandhi of the May 17 movement, a small organisation championing a separate Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka, now addressed the crowd. “This protest is not just for the single demand for Jallikattu, but about the excesses of the state and Central governments. No one was able to do anything about it all this while. Students are joining this protest to express their opposition to such authoritarian actions.” Gandhi was not available for comment despite multiple attempts to reach him.

Gandhi went on to attack the NDA, and the AIADMK (All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam) government in the state. “The state and Centre are working together to bring in anti-people schemes like the Neutrino project and the methane gas scheme in the Delta areas. If Neutrino project is implemented, the final sufferers will be the people and the farmers. They will commit suicide. Students must give voice for all this too,” he urged students to continue their protests.

An alarmed Sivasenapathy and Adhi then held a press conference on January 22, distancing themselves from the protests, alleging that “vested interests” had entered what was a movement by students. “The victory belongs to students alone,” said Adhi. “There are some other organisations that have wormed their way into these protests. Traffic is being regulated by youngsters, garbage is being collected by youngsters and food is being provided by them. But small gangs of people from outside are coming in vehicles — one group is saying Muslims are being targeted, another group says Hindus are being targeted and then they clash. One gang is raising the national flag, another gang is saying ban Pepsi and Coke and pouring it on the ground…..Another senior police official who did not want to be named said that anti-Modi slogans and anti-PETA slogans were being injected into the protests by these groups.

Take for instance the Social Democratic Party of India (SDPI), the political front for the Popular Front of India (PFI), an organisation with its roots in Kerala that has taken extremist and communal turns on various social issues. SDPI cadre was part of the protests from the very first day, ensuring that food supply continued throughout the week-long action. “The Centre has full rights and powers to ensure that Jallikattu happens,” said Syed Ibrahim Gani of the SDPI in Chennai. “The BJP leaders here and at the national level all speak different things. What is their stand?” Gani also said that blankets, clothes and food were provided by the organisation and its affiliates. “All Islamic organisations supplied food. It is part of our religion and concept,” he said.

When asked for his reaction about the police’s allegations that fringe elements had hijacked the students’ protests, Gani preferred to remain silent.”

Subramanian Swamy, an alleged Mossad disinformation outlet, has suggested that ISI (Pakistan’s spy agency) might be behind the provocateurs at the pro-Jallikattu protests:

“President’s Rule necessary. CRPF, BSF and Army must be mobilised for strike. It is now or never to recover TN from Naxals & Jehadis & Porkis,” Sawmy wrote in Twitter. In this tweet, he contradicted his earlier position where he asked for Sasikala Natarajan to be made the Chief Minister of the state in place of incumbent O. Panneerselvam. “Sasikala should take over. NRH Natarajan be kept far away from power. Panneer (O. Panneerselvam) is a good man but the road to hell is paved with good intentions,” Swamy, a Tamil himself, had tweeted earlier. Later, speaking with India Today, Swamy said that the sudden violence in Chennai was actually triggered by Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI. “Genuine agitators have dispersed. The main organiser said he is leaving Marina. Today there are people with Prabhakaran’s and Hafiz Sayeed’s posters. This is now an ISI-financed agitation,” Swamy said.

Sinister Agenda Behind DeMo

Bill Engdahl rehashes the agenda behind DeMo, in a good piece, that like all Western  analysis, avoids mentioning the scores of people in India who have in real time deconstructed this operation as it occurred, instead, attributing it to investigation by a German economist.

Whether that is proof of disinformation or controlled opposition I do not know. But I always suspect people who publish misleading sources.

Nonetheless, the article is a good summing up of the agenda behind DeMo, while omitting the British angle and pinning the blame on “Washington” in the usual way of left-wing sites.

[Global Research based in Canada publishes useful pieces, slanted heavily toward Marxist or leftist analysis, thus avoiding the conspiracy tag.]

The Modi cash-less India operation is a project of the US National Security Council, US State Department and Office of the President administered through its US Agency for International Development (USAID). Little surprise, then, that the US State Department spokesman, Mark Toner in a December 1, 2016 press briefing praised the Modi demonetization move stating, “…this was, we believe, an important and necessary step to crack down on illegal actions…a necessary one to address the corruption.”

Keep in mind that USAID today has little to do with aiding poorer countries. By law it must follow the foreign policy agenda of the President’s National Security Council and State Department. It’s widely known as a conduit for CIA money to execute their dirty agendas abroad in places such as Georgia. Notably, the present head of the USAID, Gayle Smith, came to head USAID from her post as Senior Director at the US National Security Council.

German economist and blogger, Norbert Haering, in an extensive, well-documented investigation into the background of the bizarre Modi move to a cash-less India, found not only USAID as the key financial source of the project. He also uncovered a snake-pit of organizational vipers being funded by USAID to design and implement the India shock therapy.

USAID negotiated a co-operation with the Modi Indian Ministry of Finance. In October, 2016 in a press release USAID announced it had created and funded something it named Project Catalyst. The title of their report was, “Catalyst: Inclusive Cashless Payment Partnership.” Its stated goal it said was to bring about a “quantum leap” in cashless payment in India.

They certainly did that. Maybe two quantum leaps and some.

If we dig a bit deeper we find that in January, 2016, USAID presented the Indian Finance Ministry a report titled, Beyond Cash: Why India loves cash and why that matters for financial inclusion. Financial “inclusion” for them means getting all Indians into the digital banking system where their every payment can be electronically tracked and given to the tax authorities or to whomever the government sees fit.

Astonishingly, the report, prepared for USAID by something called the Global Innovation Exchange, admitted that “97% of retail transactions in India are conducted in cash or check; Few consumers use digital payments. Only 11% used debit cards for payments last year. Only 6% of Indian merchants accept digital payments…Only 29 percent of bank accounts in India have been used in the last three months.” The US and Indian governments knew very well what shock they were detonating in India.

The Global Innovation Exchange includes such dubious member organizations as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a major donor to the Modi war on cash initiative of USAID. It also includes USAID itself, several UN agencies including UNICEF, UNDP, UNHCR. And it includes the US Department of Commerce and a spooky Maclean, Virginia military contractor called MITRE Corporation whose chairman is former CIA Director, James Rodney Schlesinger, a close associate of Henry Kissinger.

The USAID Project Catalyst in partnership with the Indian Finance Ministry was done, according to the USAID press statement, with a sinister-sounding organization called CashlessCatalyst.org. Among the 35 members of CashlessCatalyst.org are USAID, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, VISA, MasterCard, Omidyar Network of eBay billionaire founder Pierre Omidyar, the World Economic Forum-center of the globalization annual Alpine meetings.

War on Cash

However, a most interesting member of the USAID Project Catalyst together with the Indian Ministry of Finance is something called Better Than Cash Alliance. In point of fact the US-government-finance Project Catalyst grew out of a longer cooperation between USAID, the Washington-based Better Than Cash Alliance and the Indian Ministry of Finance. It appers to be the core public driver pushing the agenda of the global “war on cash.”

India and the reckless (or corrupt) Modi government implementing the USAID-Better Than Cash Alliance agenda is clearly serving as a guinea pig in a mass social experiment about how to push the cash war in other countries. The Better Than Cash Alliance is described by the UNCDF, which is its Secretariat, as “a US $38 million global alliance of governments, private sector and development organizations committed to accelerating the shift from cash to electronic payments.”

The Better Than Cash Alliance website announces that the alliance, created in 2012, is a “partnership of governments, companies, and international organizations that accelerates the transition from cash to digital payments in order to reduce poverty and drive inclusive growth.” It’s housed at the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) in New York whose major donors, in turn, surprise, surprise, are the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and MasterCard Foundation. Among the Better Than Cash Alliance’s 50 members are, in addition to the Gates Foundation, Citi Foundation (Citigroup), Ford Foundation, MasterCard, Omidyar Network, United States Agency for International Development, and Visa Inc.

Recently the European Central Bank, which has held negative interest rates for more than a year, allegedly to stimulate growth in the Eurozone amid the long-duration banking and economic crisis of almost nine years, announced that it will stop printing the €500 note. They claim it’s connected with money laundering and terror financing, though it ominously echoes the Modi India war on cash. Former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, whose shady role in the 1990’s rape of Russia through his Harvard cronies has been documented elsewhere, is calling for eliminating the US $100 bill. These are first steps to future bolder moves to the desired Cash-less society of Gates, Citigroup, Visa et al.

US Dual Standard: Follow the money…

The move to a purely digital money system would be Big Brother on steroids. It would allow the relevant governments to monitor our every money move with a digital trail, to confiscate deposits in what now are legal bank “bail-ins” as was done in Cyprus in 2013. If central banks move interest rates into negative, something the Bank of Japan and ECB in Frankfurt are already doing, citizens have no choice than to spend the bank money or lose. It is hailed as a way to end tax avoidance but it is far, far more sinister.

As Norbert Haering notes, “the status of the dollar as the world’s currency of reference and the dominance of US companies in international finance provide the US government with tremendous power over all participants in the formal non-cash financial system. It can make everybody conform to American law rather than to their local or international rules.” He adds, referring to the recent US Government demand that Germany’s largest bank, Deutsche Bank pay an astonishing and unprecedented $14 billion fine, “Every internationally active bank can be blackmailed by the US government into following their orders, since revoking their license to do business in the US or in dollar basically amounts to shutting them down.”

We should add to this “benevolent concern” of the US Government to stimulate a War on Cash in India and elsewhere the fact that while Washington has been the most aggressive demanding that banks in other countries enact measures for full disclosure of details of Swiss or Panama or other “offshore” secret account holders or US nationals holding money in foreign banks, the USA itself has scrupulously avoided demanding the same of its domestic banks. The result, as Bloomberg noted following the suspiciously-timed Panama Papers offshore “leaks” of May, 2016, is that the United States is rapidly becoming the world’s leading tax and secrecy haven for rich foreigners.

Perversely enough, in 2010 the US passed a law, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, or FACTA, that requires financial firms to disclose foreign accounts held by US citizens and report them to the US IRS tax office or the foreign banks face steep penalties. The EU signed on to the intrusive FACTA despite strong resistance. Then, using FACTA as the model, the Paris-based OECD drafted an even tougher version of FACTA in 2014 to allegedly go after tax avoiders. To date 97 countries have agreed to the tough OECD bank disclosure rules. Very few have refused. The refusers include Bahrain, Nauru, Vanuatu—and…the United States.

World’s Biggest Tax Haven

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, a financial wizard or a Meyer Lansky to see a pattern. Washington forces disclosure of secret bank accounts of its citizens or companies abroad, while at the same time lifting control or disclosure inside the United States of private banking accounts. No surprise that such experienced private bankers as London’s Rothschild & Co. have opened offices in Reno Nevada a stone’s throw from Harrah’s and other casinos, and according to Bloomberg, is doing a booming business moving the fortunes of wealthy foreign clients out of offshore havens such as Bermuda, or Switzerland which are subject to the new OECD international disclosure requirements, into Rothschild-run trusts in Nevada, which are exempt from those disclosure rules.

Rothschild & Co. Director, Andrew Penney noted that as a result, the United States today, “is effectively the biggest tax haven in the world.” Today Nevada, Meyer Lansky’s money laundering project of the 1930’s with established legalized gambling, is becoming the “new Switzerland.” Wyoming and South Dakota are close on the heels.

One area where America’s institutions are still world class is in devising complex instruments of financial control, asset theft and cyber warfare. The US War on Cash, combined with the US Treasury and IRS war on offshore banking is their latest model. As Washington’s War on Terror had a sinister, hidden agenda, so too does Washington’s War on Cash. It’s something to be avoided at all costs if we human beings are to retain any vestige of sovereignty or autonomy. It will be interesting to see how vigorously Casino mogul Trump moves to close the US tax haven status. What do you bet he doesn’t?

Anti-Trumpers Lose Their Minds..And It’s A Good Thing

I didn’t vote for Trump. I thought he was some kind Trojan Horse.  I didn’t vote for Hillary. I know she’s Chairman Mao in a pantsuit.

I didn’t vote. I had it with everything about voting a long time ago.

But I must say I now see the point of voting for Trump. Anyone who gets the opposition this lathered up cannot be all bad. I still think his foreign policy is going to be all bad, but on the domestic front, there’s at least one good thing to cheer about. He’s driven the opposition crazy.

Gary North at LRC:

I did not vote for Donald Trump. I voted for Gary Johnson. Johnson vetoed 739 bills when he was governor of New Mexico. No governor of New Mexico had ever vetoed that many bills and most of them were sustained. His opponents in the legislature could not get enough votes to override his vetoes. He really made them squirm. That had impressed me for many years, and I figured I might as well say thank you in the only way that matters for a politician: my vote. Also, when asked his opinions on Aleppo, he answered: “What is Aleppo?” Somebody who had never heard of Aleppo probably would not get the United States involved more deeply than it already is in Syria. America would be a lot better off if Barack Obama had never heard of Aleppo.

Anyway, back to Trump. He is the victim of the most systematic campaign of media vitriol that I have ever seen. They didn’t like Barry Goldwater, but they did nothing like this. They didn’t like Ronald Reagan, but they did nothing like this. They will not give Trump any slack at all.

He is being tried by a court that has the guilty verdict in its pocket. Even more delightfully, this court has proven itself to be politically impotent. And in the outlook of this court, there is nothing worse than political impotence. Political impotence means being cast into the outer darkness. As Trump’s parade begins, they sit on the sidelines shouting, “This just isn’t fair.” Yes, it is. It is also delightful.

I call your attention to the most vicious piece of slander against Trump that I have seen so far. It was written by somebody in Australia. Now, the fact that anybody in Australia gives a rat’s patootie about Donald Trump is amazing. But to write something like this is really astounding. I’m not going to quote from it. I want you to read it. As you read it, think this: this bonehead Aussie has no political skin in the game. This is in his country. It is in his political system. He is down under. But he is utterly apoplectic about Donald Trump. You can read his screed here. It appeared in the most internationally influential of Australia’s newspapers, the Sydney Morning News.

What impressed me most about his article is its tone. It is not moral outrage. It is whining. This is crybaby journalism. We do not see it often because they win so often. Snide comments, yes. Contempt, yes. But not whining. When you see a journalist whine, you know he is beaten. He is not rallying the troops for one last stand at the barricades. He is like a three-year-old lying on his back, kicking his legs wildly, and screaming: “I want it! I want it! I want it!” Someone ought to dump a glass of ice water on the guy.

This is happening all over the West. The columnists really have lost their minds. They have lost all sense of perspective.

Republicans were upset twice when Obama defeated Republican candidates for President. But before he came to power in 2009, they pretty much held their peace. I’m not talking about screwballs on the fringe. I’m talking about conservatives in newspapers, magazines, and on websites that had Alexa ratings higher than 500,000. I am talking about the equivalent of the Sydney Morning News.

Trump has really gotten under their skins. I am grudgingly becoming a fan of Trump’s. Anyone who can cause this much pain among the liberal establishment, including the liberal Republican establishment, can’t be all bad.

We are told that he has low public opinion ratings. First, this is not true. Over half the public is favorable. Second, he ran against a woman who had the lowest public opinion ratings of any Democratic candidate for President over the last century. Never has a Democratic candidate for President been so widely regarded as untrustworthy. Now, let me say that I don’t think there’s anything wrong with electing somebody to office who you think is untrustworthy. If you elect anyone to office, and you don’t assume that this person is untrustworthy, you are living in a fantasy world. But Hillary Clinton set the record for public skepticism. Yet the liberal media had a lovefest with her. They seemed astounded when this nagging, shrill, legendary thrower of plates lost the election. Hillary Clinton was the Bobby Knight of American politics. Her loss is not the end of the liberals’ world. But liberals think it may be. Liberals who think this are dumb.

THE MEDIA

The media have not been able to come to grips with his victory. They think the voters in Midwestern states have betrayed American democracy. They think that what’s good for California and New York is good for the nation. A lot of us don’t think so. I moved out of both of those states a long time ago. I have never longingly looked back at either of them. I paid my unfair share of confiscatory state taxes in both of them. That was 40 years ago before they both went even more politically insane than they were then. New York is a state represented in this century in the Senate by Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton. California elected Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. Need I say more?

The media will be in continual apoplexy for at least the next four years. And in each of these years, the media will lose market share. In each of these years, newspaper reporters will be fired unceremoniously. These people are typing furiously on the Titanic. The public is paying less and less attention to them, as Trump proved on November 8. One of my favorite websites is www.NewspaperDeathWatch.com. The latest report on falling ad revenue for the print version of The New York Times is here. I also enjoyed learning of the rout at Reuters.

Also, in each of these years, employees in network television, as well as MSNBC and CNN, will get their well-deserved pink slips.

The more the media grouse about every aspect of Trump’s administration, the more that Trump’s voters will conclude that they did the right thing on November 8.

By the way, where’s Hillary? Talk about a disappearing act! She went from the queen of the media to Greta Garbo in 48 hours. “I want to be alone!”

It is going to be business as usual in Washington. It was business as usual for eight years under Obama. Actually, it was a much-reduced business in Washington. Obama got less legislation through Congress than any modern President of the United States. He was heavy on agenda but light on implementation. Fortunately.

I think Trump’s great contribution has already been made. He utterly humiliated the liberal media. He humiliated the entire bipartisan establishment. He trounced his Republican opponents, and then he beat Hillary Clinton when it counted. He is the only person in American political history with zero backgrounds in any area of government who has been elected President. That is going to get him into the history textbooks.”

Coke, Reliance Enter Indian Dairy Drink Market

“Jallikattu” or bull-taming, is an agricultural tradition intended to conserve and improve native cattle species, now under an existential threat from imported breeds and big corporations.

From the New Indian Express:

Natives that are not grown for pride are sent for slaughter causing drastic decline in sex ratio. Jallikattu enthusiasts claim the sport help to sustain bulls for longer.

“The bulls that don’t win the game are not used for pure-breed next generation natives. Each of the strong, pure natives are used for inseminating 10-15 cows. Let’s say half the bulls win human beings. Each of these will give rise to 15 more pure natives,” says a professor of Dairy Technology at TANUVAS. Going by Rajasekaran’s number, more than a lakh-and-a-half pure natives are produced by every batch of Jallikattu bulls.

Native species do not produce as much milk as some imported species and without impregnation by the best studs, partly conserved through Jallikattu, their existence would be in doubt.

India’s largest milk producer, Amul, in Gujarat, uses Jersey cows, imported from Holland.

Meanwhile,  beverage giant, Coca-Cola, is teaming up with India’s Reliance to enter the dairy drinks market in India, this year.

With demand rising powerfully, milk will soon have to be imported along with exotic semen and other inputs needed to continue cross-breeding the native and the foreign species. More imports means higher prices making milk unaffordable to the poor; it means higher costs, making farming impossible to the marginal farmer; it means reliance on European and hybrid breeds that demand more water and are less hardy; it means foreign species’ milk that causes schizophrenia, autism and type-1 diabetes.

That’s the context needed to understand the anger at the PETA-inspired ban of Jallikattu, already heavily regulated under India’s animal protection laws.

 

Meet The People Behind Tamil “People-Power”

Read Previous Post:

Tamil Spring Color Revolution? Massive Protests Against Bull-Taming Ban”

In my earlier post on the subject, I mentioned that the Jallikattu protests (like the Jallikattu ban itself) seemed to be a well-organized effort, not a spontaneous outpouring.

In the first place, the constant signalling by the major media that it was “MakkalMovement,” (Makkal means people in Tamil), people-power, undirected, and spontaneous, sounded like propaganda.

Second, the epicenter of the protest was at Marina Beach in Chennai, the site of earlier Dravidian and Tamil identity protests, showing that this was a choreographed event, not happenstance.

The black outfits and flags deliberately hearkened back to the black-shirts of  early Dravida politics.

Third, the Jallikattu protest was led from the start by the urban, the young, the and sophisticated, whereas Jallikattu itself is a rural and traditional sport.

The spokesmen have been tech-savvy relatively affluent student groups, hardly representative of an uprising of rural cattle farmers.

The J-movement in fact sounds and feels like a well-funded and organized political movement.

And so it is.

From the Hindustan Times, comes a report naming the leaders of the Jallikattu uprising, which, contrary to the media, was first planned more than 3 years ago in 2013.

The starting point was a Chennai professional and bull owner with rural roots – Himakiran Alagula.

In 2013, Alagula contacted P. Rajasekharan of the Tamil Nadu Jallikattu Federation, who had been fighting for the practice for a decade.

Karthikeya Sivasenaapathy, the managing trustee of the Senaapathy Kangayam Cattle Research Foundation near Tirupur joined the team.

The founder of that institution, Kuttapalyam K. N. Saminathan was chairman of the livestock development committee of the TN government for over a decade, an MLA (Member of the Legislative Assembly or lower house of the state government), and an appointee of former TN Chief Minister and founder of the Dravidian identity movement in its current form, C. N. Annadurai.

Once a protege of Annadurai, the charismatic Lankan-born Tamil actor, M.G. Ramachandran used his enormous popularity with the masses to split the Tamil identity party – the DMK (Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam or Society for the Advancement of  Dravidians)  and create the Anna DMK, using Anna’s name to propel the movement into a personality cult with a humane face.

It was also under MGR rule, a band of criminals was transformed into a Tamil liberation army (Tamil Tigers), with the assistance of Mossad.

Also under MGR, Tamil Nadu devolved into a corrupt police-state.

This transformation speeded up with MGR’s mistress and former co-star, Jayalalitha, who by the time of her death was regarded as a mother goddess- Amma.

Amma, as I pointed out earlier, is a form of Shakti, the consort of Shiva and Shiva, misconstrued as Lucifer is the presiding “deity” of the New World Order.

Thus, the original atheistic,  iconoclastic, rationalistic, anti-Brahmin Tamil movement of E.V. Ramaswamy, whom the British empire originally cultivated to break up the unity of the nascent Indian state through a false opposition of Aryan and Dravidian concocted by imperial apologists, was transformed in a few decades into a popular, religious and semi-mystical cult headed by a Karnataka-born and English convent school-bred Brahmin grand-daughter of a physician to Mysore royalty.

Jayalalitha, moreover, was brought up when young by her maternal grandparents, one of whom worked for Hindustan Aeronautics, an Indian government-owned aerospace corporation with a long history of collaboration with US defense contractors like Boeing and Lockheed Martin, which have extensively documented ties with the  intelligence agencies.

Even Annadurai, the recipient of a Yale Chubb fellowship, was hosted by the US state department,  which suggests that globalist attempts to erode Indian sovereignty through the southern state, have been continuous and long-standing.

Thus, to read that behind the “leaderless” Jallikattu protests is a protege of one of the pillars of Dravidian identity politics is to realize that the current Jallikattu protests very likely mask another face of globalist intervention in India.

The purported MakkalMovement was also joined by someone described in the Hindustan Times article as a “businessman” from Coimbatore, Balakumar Somu.

Somu shows up on the pages of the Vijayvaani website which styles itself an “internet based public opinions forum” giving a niche for independent journalism. The site is copyrighted from 2008-2013 and has a registered office at 300 Gulmohar Enclave, New Delhi. There are articles by left-wing dissident journalists like James Petras and libertarian right dissidents like Paul Craig Roberts. Both just fit into the spectrum of allowed dissent in the West and are prominent voices therein, again providing another Western link.

Somu describes himself as follows:

The author is an IT professional, animal rights activist, freelance photographer and active blogger. He is pro-active in defence of Jallikattu, a sport with over 4000 years of recorded history.”

On  Jallikattu.in, which he appears to have founded, Somu is described as an “IT professional” with “wide ranging experience in India and abroad.”

This constitutes another foreign angle to the story.

The pro-J group went on to get the backing of something called the Biodiversity Conservation Council of India, which calls itself a non-profit public charitable trust and describes its mission as bringing about the goals of the United Nations, one of the premier tools of the globalist elites:

BiCCI seeks to legally revive and promote events of bio-cultural significance like Jallikattu, Rekla Race, traditional cattle/livestock shandys, Kambala, Bailgada and conduct bio cultural events under the aegis of United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity NCBD. BiCCI strives to support rural folk including women, women’s self-help groups, tribals, who rear native breeds of cattle, train them to produce cattle by-products and provide marketing support to them.

BiCCI intends to work with the Convention on United Nations convention on biological diversity, bringing together various organisations working for the conservation of native cattle of India and “to promote the “National biodiversity act 2002”.

The team at Biodiversity Conservation Council of India includes the following individuals:

  1. Srinivas Ratnasami, a prominent Madras High Court lawyer and dog-breeder who advises the Kennel Club of India.
  2. Karthikeya Sivasenapathy, Board of Managers at TN Agricultural University at Coimbatore and managing trustee at Senapathy Kangayam Cattle Research  Foundation
  3.  Balakumar Somu, a former IT consultant from Singapore, now resident in Coimbatore, and founder of Activists for Righteous Harmony of Animals Movement (AHRAM), a blogger, and photographer.
  4. Himakiran Anugula, an entrepreneur and advocate of sustainable, organic and local practices.
  5. Saravana Kumar, an engineer who owns a construction company and several farms, resident in Madurai.
  6. Raja Marthandan, a serial entrepreneur and aficionado of organic farming and native cattle species.
  7. Sundar Ganesan, Director/Trustee at Roja Muthiah Research Library, with an interest in archival work and the preservation of heritage. The Roja Muthiah Research Library, one of the best private collections of Tamil publications has been preserved at Chennai with the help of grants  from the U.S. Department of Education, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Ford Foundation along with collaboration from the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine

The website is dated 2017 and 4/7 of the members seem to be the same people behind the pro-Jallikattu movement, so one wonders if the BiCCI has a substantial presence outside this particular web-page and this particular issue.

Under the tab CAMPAIGNS, one finds a few tweets about Jallikattu and nothing more, which suggests that BiCCI is simply a PR effort intended to create the impression of a substantial Indian body behind pro-Jallikattu activism.

I could be wrong, but the evidence so far suggests that a very worthy cause (the viability of Indian cattle breeds) is being used as a vehicle for Tamil identity politics intended either to revive the fortunes of the Tamil parties…..or to co-opt it for some other purpose…

Perhaps that purpose is a diversion from the dire consequences of demonetization on the informal sector.

Or it could be that the protests and ensuing commotion enable some other infiltration, or will justify intervention from the Center.

In any case, things are not as they seem.

 

 

 

Government Widens Financial Reporting Requirements

The government is widening the number of transactions that will be directly reported by financial institutions to the income tax division:

Reiterating its November 2016 instruction, the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) in a notification dated January 17, has also asked banks to report all cash deposits of Rs 2.5 lakh or more made in one or more accounts of a person during November 9 to December 30, 2016, the 50-day window for deposits that was provided by the government following its decision to scrap high-denomination currency notes of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000.

“Cash deposits during the period November 9, 2016, to December 30, 2016, aggregating to Rs 12.50 lakh or more in one or more current account of a person (and) Rs 2.5 lakh or more in one or more account (other than a current account) of a person will have to be reported to tax authorities,” it said. Also, cash deposits during April 1, 2016, to November 9, 2016, in any account that are reportable should also be intimated to the tax authorities by January 31, 2017, the notification said.

It made it mandatory for a banking company or a cooperative bank to report cash deposits aggregating to Rs 10 lakh or more in a financial year, in one or more accounts (other than a current account and time deposit) of a person.

The tax department has also made it mandatory for a company or institution issuing bonds or debentures to report receipts from any person an amount aggregating to Rs 10 lakh or more in a financial year for acquiring bonds or debentures. A similar limit has been set for reporting purchase of shares and mutual funds.

“Buy back of shares from any person (other than the shares bought in the open market) for an amount or value aggregating to Rs 10 lakh or more in a financial year will need to be reported by a listed company,” the notification said. Purchase of foreign exchange including travellers cheque and a forex card aggregating to Rs 10 lakh would have to be reported to tax authorities.

Property registrar will have to report to tax authorities purchase or sale by any person of immovable property for an amount of Rs 30 lakh or more. Also, cash payment exceeding Rs 2 lakh for sale of goods or services of any nature will have to be reported, the CBDT’s notification said.

Banks will also have to report one or more time deposits, other than a time deposit made through renewal of another time deposit, of a person aggregating to Rs 10 lakh or more in a financial year, the CBDT said.

Payment made in cash for purchase of bank drafts or pay orders or banker’s cheque of an amount aggregating Rs 10 lakh or more in a financial year as well as payments made in cash aggregating Rs 10 lakh or more during a year for purchase of prepaid instruments issued by RBI need to be reported.

A banking company or a cooperative bank would also have to report cash deposits or cash withdrawals (including via bearer’s cheque) aggregating Rs 50 lakh or more in a financial year, in or from one or more current account of a person.”

 

NASA Admits Global Warming Fraud

H/T to Lew Rockwell on this gem:

NASA has actually admitted that there may be a link between the solar climate and the earth climate. “[In] recent years, researchers have considered the possibility that the sun plays a role in global warming. After all, the sun is the main source of heat for our planet,” Nasa confirmed. Despite the constant stories of how recent years have been the hottest, historically, NASA has estimated that four of the 10 hottest years in the U.S. were actually during the 1930s, with 1934 the hottest of all. This was the Dust Bowl; the combination of vast dust storms created by drought and hot weather.

CDIAC

The branch of research looking at the ice core samples to document climate for thousands of years has established the major solar cycle of about 300 years. Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC), which has the ice core data back 800,000 years, is being shut down as of September 2017 (800,000-year Ice-Core Records of Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide (CO2)).

800000 carbon

The data clearly establishes that there has always been a cycle to CO2 long before man’s industrial age. This is data government wants to hide. As along as they can pretend CO2 has never risen in the past before 1950, then they can tax the air and pretend it’s to prevent climate change. Moreover, while we can clean the air with regulation as we have done, under global warming, they allow “credits” to pollute as long as you pay the government. It is the ultimate scam where they get to tax pollution and people cheer rather than clean up anything.”

Tamil Spring Color Revolution? Massive Protests Against Bull-Taming Ban

According to a legend, once Shiva asked his bull, Basava, to go to the earth and ask the mortals to have an oil massage and bath every day and to eat once a month. Inadvertently, Basava announced that everyone should eat daily and have an oil bath once a month. This mistake enraged Shiva who then cursed Basava, banishing him to live on the earth forever. He would have to plough the fields and help people produce more food. Thus the association of this day [Mattu Pongal] with cattle.” [Pongal Festival.org]

Update, January 22, 2017:

An ordinance has been passed that allows Jallikattu to proceed without interference in Tamil Nadu.

Note: My post, unlike my anti-demonetization posts, does not appear individually in a google search. I tried immediately after posting and after it a couple of times. No luck.  You can draw your own conclusions from that.

Meanwhile, please note that the massive demonstrations across TN were singularly well-coordinated and peaceful, and very well-prepared, with beautifully done masks of bulls, vinyl posters in Tamil and English (for foreign media), and well-spoken student leaders. Bull masks and black flags and outfits abounded. IT students and Face-book featured prominently, while several major media outlets captioned the whole thing repeatedly as “undirected,” “people power” (MakkalMovement)- a signalling of the kind common in intelligence operations.

All this in a country where bus-burning and hooliganism is the norm during protests. Here, by contrast, police and protestors cooperated like long-lost family members.  The (BJP) Center and the (AIADMK) State leaned over backwards to accommodate each other.

I suggest this is an exercise in consciousness-raising, using a cardinal symbol of Shiva, the bull; opposing the old globalist feminism and virulent rights talk (PETA) with the new, controlled opposition globalism of managed nationalism and the virile male (Putin, Trump).

Supporting that interpretation, around the time of this bull-celebrating New Year festival, comes the inauguration of US president Donald Trump, the bull in the globalists’ feminist china shop…a master of bull in his own right…a stud bull…

 

 

 

ORIGINAL POST

While any protest against demonetization  has been swiftly quelled by the Central Government and blacked out from media coverage, one wave of protests in Tamil Nadu has quickly become headline news:

That’s the protest against a three-year ban on Jallikattu, a 3000+ year-old traditional Tamil sport characteristic of the Tamil Spring/Harvest Festival (Pongal) in which young men chase and wrestle down a fleeing bull to snatch money or gold tied to its horns:

In Tamil Nadu, Jallikattu is Veera Vilayattu or warrior sport, where a man matches wit and sinew with a raging bull and grabs a small bag of coins or Jalli, tied to its horns. The most daring among them twitches through the flaying horns and threshing hooves and hangs on to its hump as the animal completes a short lap of 50 metres. In the days gone, he would also win the daughter of the owner of the bull in marriage. It is about courage, masculinity, and above all, cultural ethos.”

Images of Jallikattu appear on Indus Valley seals, proving the ancient and indigenous nature of the tradition:

Indus Valley civilisation is known for being one of the most advanced and sophisticated amongs its contemporaries. The sport of Eru Thazhuvathal is celebrated so much that they decide to make a seal depicting the same.”

The Indian branch of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) and the Animal Welfare Board began their campaign to add Jallikattu to the list of activities banned under laws prohibiting cruelty to animals.

In 2014, a 2-member bench of the Supreme Court banned Jallikattu completely. 

A Bench of Justices K.S. Radhakrishnan and Pinaki Chandra Misra said, “Forcing a bull and keeping it in the waiting area for hours and subjecting it to the scorching sun is not for the animal’s well-being. Forcing and pulling the bull by a nose rope into the narrow, closed enclosure or ‘vadi vassal’ (entry point), subjecting it to all forms of torture, fear, pain and suffering by forcing it to go the arena and also over-powering it in the arena by bull tamers, are not for the well-being of the animal.”

But Tamil animal activists have joined bull-tamers and their aficionados to insist that the sport is not inherently cruel, despite occasional abuses.

They argue that the ban constitutes an intentional assault on Tamil culture by the Central Government.

What is clearly true is that the objective of Jallikattu is not harming or killing the bull, as it is in Spanish bull-fighting. People, not bulls, seem to be the main victims:

This is Jallikattu, an ancient and bizarre bull-wrestling sport that takes place in villages throughout Tamil Nadu every January to celebrate Pongal, a New Year’s festival that coincides with the ancient rice harvest. Though similar to and older than the Spanish running of the bulls, it’s bloodier. Instead of bulls getting killed, it’s the people. In previous years, as many as 20 young men have been fatally gored, and several hundred, including spectators, have been mauled, trampled or otherwise injure.”

Since the original impetus for the ban was the death in 2004 of a 14-year-old spectator, framing the issue as one of animal-rights versus human (read, masculine/patriarchal) cruelty is obviously misleading.

But that is how it has been framed, with the international animal-liberation movement taking a prominent role.

In January 2016, the head of PETA was detained by Indian police for blind-folding a statue of Gandhi in protest against Jallikattu.

Regarding the anti-Jallikattu activism, BJP gadfly and alleged Mossad mouth-piece Subramanian Swamy has charged that it is funded from abroad and is part of an Afro-Dravidian separatist movement intended to fragment India. He has insisted on a CBI investigation:

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy has alleged that protests organised against Jallikattu have been inspired from abroad and he intends to take the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation in terms of funding of the animal rights organisations.”

Far more germane to the issue than animal-rights is the question of indigenous farming technology.

Jallikattu is a tradition that ensures that certain skills (bull-taming without the use of a rope) are conserved among agriculturalists and certain traits (virility, strength, and speed) are conserved among indigenous breeds:

Male calves in other regions are sold and taken for slaughter in a few days. Only in regions where there are events like jallikattu are they kept. The owner of an imported cow will like it to deliver a female calf. If she does, it’s a windfall. If it’s a male calf then he will have no use for it and he has to feed it. It will go to the slaughter house for Rs. 500. A lot of mutton we eat is the meat of these under-one-week calves mixed with mutton. The same will happen to these native breeds if not for activities like jallikattu. With reduced availability of males, farmers will have to go in for artificial insemination, which is cost prohibitive and is directly in contravention of in-situ conservation. Unless there are bulls being bred and reared in the in-situ region, the genetic pool of the breed will not be healthy as no adaptation to changes in climate, local environment has been ingrained. We are messing with evolution when we abandon in-situ conservation with bulls and natural servicing/mating.

Native cows do not yield as much milk as the imported breeds. So they don’t have a supportive or sponsored breeding programme. Artificial means are not adopted for native breeds. So as a fall out of the banning of jallikattu, they will soon fade away and become extinct.”

Viewed against the back-drop of an incipient digital dictatorship inaugurated by the Modi demonetization fiasco, it becomes obvious that the ban on Jallikattu is not a distraction from, but a replication of, the ban on currency notes.

The cash ban, as I showed in an earlier blog-post,  was effectively a war on small and medium businesses and the indigenous financial sector.

That sector uses indigenous methods of financing (chit-funds, hawala, angadia payments, etc.), all of which depend on a combination of cash and promissory notes/back-dated checks.

Ban cash and you break the back of the native financial sector and the economy that depends on it.

Ban Jallikattu, likewise, and you break the back of native farming and cattle-breeding and the economy that depends on it.

This year, the Jallikattu issue has boiled up into open, state-wide protests around the Pongal season (the 4-day harvest festival in mid-January).

Pongal, by the way, means “boiling.”

State-wide Jallikattu protests, triggered by anti-Jallikattu activism and the arrest of thousands of pro-Jallikattu protestors – have become a stand-in for a spectrum of discontents –

*The unilateral imposition of demonetization on the country, causing untold hardship in drought-hit Tamil Nadu

*Income-tax raids that appear to target Tamil Nadu

*The suspicious but uninvestigated death of the charismatic and popular Tamil Chief Minister, Jayalalitha

*Apparent attempts by the BJP government to insert itself into  post-Jaya politics to gain a foot-hold in the important state

*The refusal of northern neighbor Karnataka to abide by a SC (Supreme Court) directive to share Cauvery River water with  drought-hit Tamil Nadu….

*The inadequate central government response to drought in Tamil Nadu

Despite these popular grievances, however,  there’s a lot more going on behind the scenes of what is being dubbed an undirected “people’s movement”.

ITEM

Tamil Nadu is the most industrialized of all Indian states along with Karnataka. Bangalore is the center of the software and outsourcing industry while there is a vast amount of foreign investment in TN’s Coimbatore and in Chennai, a manufacturing center.

Western intelligence agencies are active here, protecting the investments of the business class.

ITEM

Tamil politics has been the locus of foreign intervention ever since the British fostered the rise of Dravidian (south Indian) consciousness, by subsidizing the promotion of anti-Brahmin groups, out of which the DMK and the Anna DMK (to which Jaya belonged) developed.

A water-shed moment was reached during the Chief Ministership of famed film-star M.G.Ramachandran (MGR), who mentored Jayalalitha, reportedly his long-time mistress.

Under MGR, Tamil consciousness got a new, violent face, with the rise of the Tamil Tigers.  The Tigers, renowned as the world’s deadliest terrorists/freedom-fighters, began as a band of murderous roving bandits. Patronized by both the Mossad and Indira Gandhi, they eventually became a thorn in the side of the national government and one of their group murdered Mrs Gandhi’s own son, Rajiv, then the Indian PM.

The British also endorsed  a highly questionable racial narrative that pitted dark-skinned Tamils as the eternal victims of light-skinned Aryan and Vedic Hindus of the north, a narrative that is part of the Afro-Dravidian movement, which Rajiv Malhotra has identified as a Western strategy to create a Tamil secessionist state out of TN and NE Sri Lanka, home to a militant Tamil diaspora.

The Afro-Dravidian narrative in turn reinforced another fiction sponsored by imperialist ideologues – the Aryan invasion of India, a theory of the origins of classical Indian culture that has been discredited by genetic data and archeological records.

All this forces us to accept the following basic scientific fact: outside of Africa, South Asia contains the world’s oldest populations, and modern Europeans are themselves among the peoples descended from migrants from India, going back more than 40,000 years. This should be the starting point for studying history in the Holocene or the post Ice Age period.”

But, while PETA and other anti-Jallikattu animal rights groups are certainly funded from abroad,  there is evidence that the pro-Jallikattu groups are also well-funded, come mainly from Westernized student groups and IT professionals  savvy with social media in the well-known tradition of “undirected,” and “leaderless” people’s movements (Makkal Movement) that has become the new face of intelligence interventions.

Here’s more evidence of an intel connection:

1.  Both the PETA spokesman in India and anti-Jallikatu representatives have introduced the meme of “Arab Spring” into the public language around the protests. The Times of India, an elite media organ, was one of the earliest to insert the meme into Jallikattu discourse.

The Economic Times and a host of other major media outlets did so too.

2. The pro-J protests have been drawn from among relatively affluent, Westernized student groups in Chennai and appear well-funded.

3. The bull itself is the animal of Shiva and Shiva is identified by the world order as its presiding deity, using the popular but erroneous Christian identification of Shiva with Lucifer (which I have refuted on this blog).

On January 16, simultaneously with the Jallikattu uproar and the Pongal festival, in which the bull plays a prominent part, India became an associate member of CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research).

Outside CERN is a statue of Shiva in Nataraja pose (as a dancer, creating and destroying the worlds). The statue was recently depicted in a some kind of hoax video of human sacrifice to Shiva that was actually filmed within its precincts.

4. The protests have targeted the successors to Jayalalitha, CM Paneerselvam and Sasikala Natarajan, Jaya’s chosen Chief Secretary, for inadequate action on Jallikattu.

These are the same figures that the BJP itself has been interested in targeting, in an attempt to fracture the AIADMK and the DMK to secure control over the state.

5. The attacks against PETA were initiated by Subramanian Swamy, of the BJP, a known Mossad disinformation outlet.

6. The bull is identified with pre-Vedic Indian culture, supposedly presided over by a mother goddess,  associated with a snake and bull.  The mother goddess in the form of Shakti is the female counterpart of Shiva. The snake is identified with Saivite worship. For instance, the Naga (snake) sect in Tamil Nadu are Saivites.

Amma means mother in Tamil and was the name assigned to deceased former Tamil CM Jayalalitha. There is at least one important South Indian guru named Amma who is given great prominence in globalist initiatives like the fight against modern slavery and is featured by the UN.

Recently,  South Indian television networks have had a plethora of shows featuring snake-gods and humans who morph into snakes, including the popular serials, Mahamayi and Nagini.

 

 

RBI: DeMo Disclosure Endangers Life, National Security

From Gulf-News:

India’s central bank refused to share specific details of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ban on high-value banknotes citing danger to life and national security, as the mystery deepens over who took the unprecedented decision.
The Reserve Bank of India recommended the move, which was accepted by the cabinet and announced by Modi on November 8, Power Minister Piyush Goyal told parliament in November. The RBI board approved the ban three hours before Modi’s speech and hadn’t discussed the matter before, a slew of responses to Bloomberg News’s Right to Information requests show.
However, the RBI told a lawmakers’ panel this week that the government had “advised” the monetary authority to “consider” the ban a day before the RBI board made its recommendation. The government then “considered the recommendations” and decided to withdraw the notes, culminating in Modi’s address that blindsided the nation.
The cloak of secrecy that has shrouded the currency ban decision is likely to bolster the view that authorities, both on Mint Street and in New Delhi, were not prepared for such a decision and the way it was announced. It risks undermining perceptions of the central bank’s independence and raises questions about Modi’s decision-making style and his communication with the RBI.
More clarity may emerge when RBI governor Urjit Patel deposes before a parliamentary committee on January 20. Details are essential to help assess the success of the shock move as well as gauge the impact of the decision on Asia’s No 3 economy.
“It is very perplexing that the RBI doesn’t answer questions about how the decision was arrived at,” said Shilan Shah, Singapore-based India Economist at Capital Economics. “There are concerns that in the whole process the RBI has been sidelined by the government and that raises questions about its independence,” he said, adding that authorities have not been transparent. Bloomberg News asked the RBI 14 questions between December 8 and January 2. The central bank as of January 11 had answered five, disclosing the date and time of the RBI’s board meeting and the fact that the board had never discussed demonetisation before November 8. It said it doesn’t have information to answer one question, on how many of the worthless notes have been deposited at commercial banks. It transferred two questions on printing of new notes to organisations that manage the presses. The RBI said that a question asking “what prompted the board to discuss and approve the withdrawal of notes” doesn’t come under the definition of “information” under the RTI Act. It provided different answers to a question asked three times, seeking details on board members who opposed the move. In two replies the RBI said “it is a matter of fact that the decision was unanimous.” In a separate response, it said “this information is not available on record.” To a question seeking details on the number of demonetised notes already at banks on the evening of Modi’s speech, the RBI claimed an exemption, citing danger to the life or physical safety of anyone who disclosed this information to the public. The RBI also claimed exemptions on two questions seeking detail on its preparations for the demonetisation and studies it used to forecast the impact of the move. Sharing these “sensitive matters” would endanger India’s sovereignty, integrity and security, according to the RBI.
The use of those specific exemptions are “perplexing,” Capital Economics’s Shah said. Shailesh Gandhi, a former bureaucrat with the Central Information Commission, told the FirstPost website on December 31 that the RBI’s attitude of stonewalling smacked of “sheer arrogance.”
“What the RBI is doing by refusing to answer queries under RTI is denying citizens their fundamental rights,” Gandhi said. Lawmakers are also seeking answers. Parliament was gridlocked as the opposition demanded discussions and voting on the measures, the Supreme Court is hearing petitions against the legality of the steps, and two lawmaker panels have sought explanations from the RBI.
The decision to demonetise was taken only when the stock of new currency notes was reaching a “critical minimum,” enough to meet a significant part of demand, the RBI told a panel in a note accessed by Bloomberg News. However, the currency swap was riddled with rule changes and data that analysts have questioned. Patel will depose before another lawmaker panel on January 20, which is expected to seek his view on the impact of the demonetisation on India’s economy.”

Alleged Trump Sex Video: From 9-11, Grosvenor Gardens

An interesting factoid:

The infamous alleged fetish video involving Donald Trump and a Russian hotel bed in which the Obamas slept (details delicately withheld on our chaste blog) turns out to have been given to US intelligence officials by none other than Senator John McCain, whose own record is so dodgy it muddies the story even more.

We think the much bigger question than Obama’s bed is Trump’s. Who’s in it? How much in hock is he to Russia?

McCain, an alleged war-hero but documented fink,  was once a POW in Vietnam and, since I just watched “The Manchurian Candidate,” that raises all sorts of questions for me about his own motivations and agenda.

Second, the file on Trump was compiled by a 20 year veteran of MI6 (the British foreign intelligence service), Christopher Steele, who from 1990 until 2009 was also a spy in Russia.

2009 was the year a lot of intel operations, including that of Wikileaks, began operating.

So what did Mr. Steele do in 2009? He opened Orbis Business Intelligence, which compiled the video. Apparently, he was funded by Republican anti-Trump operatives.

Where is Orbis located?

At the commercial site of 9-11 Grosvenor Gardens in London.

Is this another Rothschild/NWO wink or merely coincidence?

If the former,  into which realm of reality, falsity, or some mixture of both, do we consign the video?

And who is  behind it?

Insane McCain, Trump himself, his handlers, the Russians, the financial cabal, the CIA, Mossad, the FSB? Or some combination of these?

And if this is an X-rated rerun of the Manchurian Candidate, with McCain as the brain-washed trigger-man, is it Mike Pence or Hillary Clinton, who is the intended beneficiary?

My bet is the latter.

 

India Top Five Target Of US Spying

A 2013 article at Esamkriti.com describes why the US spies on India:

Clues to a changing world

In March 2013 the NSA picked up 9.6 billion pieces of information from India’s computer networks, making it the fifth tracked country in the world after Iran, Pakistan, Jordan and Egypt. The top four are all Muslim countries, with Jordan also a close ally, so it’s a no-brainer why the NSA is targeting them. But has the world shifted so much on its geopolitical axis that India is now a bigger target than Russia and China?

There are two possibilities. One, the Americans are making sure India remains on its side of the fence. Secondly, if the NSA has been able to steal more data from India than from Russia and China, it only shows how powerless developing countries are against well-equipped spy agencies.

Why India is a top 5 target

In March 2013 the NSA picked up 9.6 billion pieces of information from India’s computer networks, making India the fifth tracked country in the world after Iran, Pakistan, Jordan and Egypt. If India is now a bigger target than Russia in American eyes, it only shows how the world has shifted on its geopolitical axis.

Unlike China and Russia where the United States can pinch industrial (http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2013/06/tianhe/) secrets, India offers nothing equivalent. In almost every technological area, the Americans are ahead of India.

[Lila: This is actually inaccurate. There are plenty of areas in which the US is very eager to pinch or adopt Indian technical breakthroughs and medical innovations and the eagerness the US shows in joint ventures with Indian research institutions is proof of this. Moreover, one of the great objectives of the digitilization of India is to make Indian trade secrets and scientific research even more open to theft than it already is.]

But India is far more important. As their economies surge, India and China are reverting to their ancient duopoly. Research conducted by Angus Maddison and his colleagues at the University of Groningen shows India had 25 per cent of global income from the year 1500 CE through 1700 CE. China accounted for 35 per cent. In the year 1 CE, India’s share was 33 per cent, China’s 26 per cent and the Roman Empire’s 21 per cent.

Historically India and China were the engines of global trade. Roman emperor Tiberius and the historian Pliny complained about the drain of wealth (http://articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/2010-10-21/ahmedabad/28239734_1_bharuch-port-book) to India.

An India-China duopoly is a deep-rooted Western fear, and under the BRICS umbrella it might well happen. (Before the British created the border problems, the India-China border was as free as the United States-Canada frontier. Venetian traveller Marco Polo wrote in his memoirs that the Chinese emperor sent him on a fleet which carried a princess who was to marry an Indian prince.) In the 21st century as India and China are once again poised to be the two largest economies, both will be intensely targeted by Western spy agencies.

Weapon worries

Ironically, India’s improvement in ties with the United States is likely to lead to even more American spying. The Americans have always been paranoid about Russia acquiring their weapons technologies via India. Earlier, it simply banned arms sales to India; now with the decline of the American economy, India is a valued – though not trusted – customer. If only to feel assured that its high-tech armaments and aircraft are not being taken apart in Moscow, American spies will be keeping a close watch.

They have plenty of experience in that area. One of the earliest instances of American meddling in India was back in the 1950s when the CIA secretly provided cash to the Catholic Syrian Christian church to destabilise the democratically elected government of Kerala. On another occasion the CIA provided funds to discredit communists in West Bengal.

According to former US ambassador to India, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, “Both times the money was given to the Congress Party which had asked for it. Once it was given to Mrs Indira Gandhi herself, who was then a party official.”

Islamic angle

The increasing radicalisation of Indian Muslims and the big uptick in Islamic terrorist activity in India is a worry not just for India but also for the West, as India’s Muslim terrorists are now linking up on a multinational scale. It won’t be long before some of them are seen in Chechnya or other troublespots.

It is, therefore, understandable why the top four in the NSA list are Muslim countries. American espionage on India and Indian Muslims is, therefore, as inevitable as American spying on Saudi Arabia and Iran. In fact, American paranoia is justified as the Indian government – with an eye on Muslim votes – is victimizing its own agents who have played a key role in eliminating Muslim terrorists.

India and US: Trust deficit

The United States doesn’t implicitly trust India in a way it trusts Britain, Canada or Poland. After 9/11 the Americans encouraged the Indian government to send RAW and IB agents to enroll in counter-terrorism courses in the United States. This had two major consequences. One, it helped the United States identify hundreds of Indian agents who now cannot undertake undercover operations. Two, it has helped the CIA recruit Indian secret service agents. The most well-known case was that of RAW agent Rabindra Singh, who became an American double agent on one his many trips to the United States.

The Hindu’s Pravin Swami argues that India’s establishment is more vulnerable now than at any point in the past. “The large number of politicians, bureaucrats and military officers whose children study or work in the US provide an easy source of influence. Efforts to recruit from this pool are not new. In the early 1980s, the son of then RAW chief N. Narasimhan left the US after efforts were made to approach the spy chief through him. Narasimhan’s son had been denied a visa extension, and was offered its renewal in return for his cooperation with the US’ intelligence services. According to a senior RAW officer, not all would respond with such probity.”

Global backlash

The good money is on an international backlash against the United States and Britain. The Germans are already calling for the “United Stasi of America” to put a leash on the NSA. According to John Villasenor, professor of electrical engineering and public policy at UCLA, (http://www.forbes.com/fdc/welcome_mjx.shtml) “The NSA leaks will put wind in the sails of non-US intelligence services aiming to ramp up espionage targeting American businesses. Budgets for spying on American businesses will grow, and people to do the work will be easier to hire.”

Also, the Defence Science Board says the United States is not prepared to counter a full-scale cyber conflict. China’s ability to penetrate the world’s most secure communication system indicates the Board is spot on.

No business like the spy business

In “Crown Jewels: The British Secrets at the Heart of the KGB Archive” author Nigel West shows the extent to which countries will go to steal secrets. One summer day during the 1950s in Moscow, KGB agents were tailing the wife of the British ambassador. The woman had been obtaining classified documents from a Russian, while on her daily ‘walks’ through Moscow’s streets. Realising she was being followed the ambassador’s wife tucked the documents in her underpants and tried to run towards the embassy.

She was caught, the documents were retrieved, and the British envoy quickly quit his job.

Thanks to advances in communication, spies no longer have to steal documents in such comical fashion. It is precisely because of the vulnerability of spies on the ground that the NSA has taken electronic eavesdropping to a new level.

Washington Behind Indian Cash Ban?

An interesting piece that recycles all the themes on this blog into one long piece, but pins the donkey’s tail on “Washington” and “Obama”.

Furthermore, no hat-tip to yours truly, or GreatGameIndia, or WideAawkeGentile, or FirstPost, Indian Express,  or any of the dozens of Indian blogs and writers who unearthed this story accurately.

Most importantly, no mention of the global financial cabal that pulls the strings of the multinational institutions.

No, the cashless project did not begin with Obama, by any means. Nor can it be pinned on Obama….or Modi…or any other political opportunist or lackey of the globalist powers.

The Obama administration were behind the recent ban on cash in India, which saw millions of citizens take to the streets in protest. 

In early November, without any warning, the Indian government banned two of the largest denomination bills at Washington’s request.

Norberthaering.de reports:

US-President Barack Obama has declared the strategic partnership with India a priority of his foreign policy. China needs to be reined in. In the context of this partnership, the US government’s development agency USAID has negotiated cooperation agreements with the Indian ministry of finance. One of these has the declared goal to push back the use of cash in favor of digital payments in India and globally.

On November 8, Indian prime minster Narendra Modi announced that the two largest denominations of banknotes could not be used for payments any more with almost immediate effect. Owners could only recoup their value by putting them into a bank account before the short grace period expired. The amount of cash that banks were allowed to pay out to individual customers was severely restricted. Almost half of Indians have no bank account and many do not even have a bank nearby. The economy is largely cash based. Thus, a severe shortage of cash ensued. Those who suffered the most were the poorest and most vulnerable. They had additional difficulty earning their meager living in the informal sector or paying for essential goods and services like food, medicine or hospitals. Chaos and fraud reigned well into December.

Four weeks earlier

Not even four weeks before this assault on Indians, USAID had announced the establishment of „Catalyst: Inclusive Cashless Payment Partnership“, with the goal of effecting a quantum leap in cashless payment in India. The press statement of October 14 says that Catalyst “marks the next phase of partnership between USAID and Ministry of Finance to facilitate universal financial inclusion”. The statement does not show up in the list of press statements on the website of USAID (anymore?). Not even filtering statements with the word “India” would bring it up. To find it, you seem to have to know it exists, or stumble upon it in a web search. Indeed, this and other statements, which seemed rather boring before, have become a lot more interesting and revealing after November 8.

Reading the statements with hindsight it becomes obvious, that Catalyst and the partnership of USAID and the Indian Ministry of Finance, from which Catalyst originated, are little more than fronts which were used to be able to prepare the assault on all Indians using cash without arousing undue suspicion. Even the name Catalysts ounds a lot more ominous, once you know what happened on November 9.

Catalyst’s Director of Project Incubation is Alok Gupta, who used to be Chief Operating Officer of the World Resources Institute in Washington, which has USAID as one of its main sponsors. He was also an original member of the team that developed Aadhaar, the Big-Brother-like biometric identification system.

According to a report of the Indian Economic Times, USAID has committed to finance Catalyst for three years. Amounts are kept secret.

Badal Malick was Vice President of India’s most important online marketplace Snapdeal, before he was appointed as CEO of Catalyst. He commented:

“Catalyst’s mission is to solve multiple coordination problemsthat have blocked the penetration of digital payments among merchants and low-income consumers. We look forward to creating a sustainable and replicable model. (…) While there has been (…) a concerted push for digital payments by the government, there is still a last mile gap when it comes to merchant acceptance and coordination issues. We want to bring a holistic ecosystem approach to these problems.”

Ten months earlier

The multiple coordination problem and the cash-ecosystem-issue that Malick mentions had been analysed in a report that USAID commissioned in 2015 and presented in January 2016, in the context of the anti-cash partnership with the Indian Ministry of Finance. The press release on this presentation is also not in USAID’s list of press statements (anymore?). The title of the study was “Beyond Cash”.

“Merchants, like consumers, are trapped in cash ecosystems, which inhibits their interest” in digital payment it said in the report. Since few traders accept digital payments, few consumers have an interest in it, and since few consumers use digital payments, few traders have an interest in it. Given that banks and payment providers charge fees for equipment to use or even just try out digital payment, a strong external impulse is needed to achieve a level of card penetration that would create mutual interest of both sides in digital payment options.

It turned out in November that the declared “holistic ecosystem approach” to create this impulse consisted in destroying the cash-ecosystem for a limited time and to slowly dry it up later, by limiting the availability of cash from banks for individual customers. Since the assault had to be a surprise to achieve its full catalyst-results, the published Beyond-Cash-Study and the protagonists of Catalyst could not openly describe their plans. They used a clever trick to disguise them and still be able to openly do the necessary preparations, even including expert hearings. They consistently talked of a regional field experiment that they were ostensibly planning.

“The goal is to take one city and increase the digital payments 10x in six to 12 months,” said Malick less than four weeks before most cash was abolished in the whole of India. To not be limited in their preparation on one city alone, the Beyond-Cash-report and Catalyst kept talking about a range of regions they were examining, ostensibly in order to later decide which was the best city or region for the field experiment. Only in November did it became clear that the whole of India should be the guinea-pig-region for a global drive to end the reliance on cash. Reading a statement of Ambassador Jonathan Addleton, USAID Mission Director to India, with hindsight, it becomes clear that he stealthily announced that, when he said four weeks earlier:

“India is at the forefront of global efforts to digitize economies and create new economic opportunities that extend to hard-to-reach populations. Catalyst will support these efforts by focusing on the challenge of making everyday purchases cashless.”

Veterans of the war on cash in action

Who are the institutions behind this decisive attack on cash? Upon the presentation of the Beyond-Cash-report, USAID declared: “Over 35 key Indian, American and international organizations have partnered with the Ministry of Finance and USAID on this initiative.” On the website catalyst.org one can see that they are mostly IT- and payment service providers who want to make money from digital payments or from the associated data generation on users. Many are veterans of,what a high-ranking official of Deutsche Bundesbank called the “war of interested financial institutions on cash”. They include the Better Than Cash Alliance, the Gates Foundation (Microsoft), Omidyar Network (eBay), the Dell Foundation Mastercard, Visa, Metlife Foundation.

The Better Than Cash Alliance

The Better Than Cash Alliance, which includes USAID as a member, is mentioned first for a reason. It was founded in 2012 to push back cash on a global scale. The secretariat is housed at the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDP) in New York, which might have its reason in the fact that this rather poor small UN-organization was glad to have the Gates-Foundation in one of the two preceding years and the Master-Card-Foundation in the other as its most generous donors.

The members of the Alliance are large US-Institutions which would benefit most from pushing back cash, i.e. credit card companies Mastercard and Visa, and also some US-institutions whose names come up a lot in books on the history of the United States intelligence services, namely Ford Foundation and USAID. A prominent member is also the Gates-Foundation. Omidyar Network of eBay-founder Pierre Omidyar and Citi are important contributors. Almost all of these are individually also partners in the current USAID-India-Initiative to end the reliance on cash in India and beyond. The initiative and the Catalyst-program seem little more than an extended Better Than Cash Alliance, augmented by Indian and Asian organizations with a strong business interest in a much decreased use of cash.

Reserve Bank of India’s IMF-Chicago Boy

The partnership to prepare the temporary banning of most cash in India coincides roughly with the tenure of Raghuram Rajan at the helm of Reserve Bank of India from September 2013 to September 2016. Rajan (53) had been, and is now again, economics professor at the University of Chicago. From 2003 to 2006 he had been Chief Economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington. (This is a cv-item he shares with another important warrior against cash, Ken Rogoff.) He is a member of the Group of Thirty, a rather shady organization, where high ranking representatives of the world major commercial financial institutions share their thoughts and plans with the presidents of the most important central banks, behind closed doors and with no minutes taken. It becomes increasingly clear that the Group of Thirty is one of the major coordination centers of the worldwide war on cash. Its membership includes other key warriers like Rogoff, Larry Summers and others.

Raghuram Rajan has ample reason to expect to climb further to the highest rungs in international finance and thus had good reason to play Washington’s game well. He already was a President of the American Finance Association and inaugural recipient of its Fisher-Black-Prize in financial research. He won the handsomely endowed prizes of Infosys for economic research and of Deutsche Bank for financial economics as well as the Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Prize for best economics book. He was declared Indian of the year by NASSCOM and Central Banker of the year by Euromoney and by The Banker. He is considered a possible successor of Christine Lagard at the helm of the IMF, but can certainly also expect to be considered for other top jobs in international finance.

As a Central Bank Governor, Rajan was liked and well respected by the financial sector, but very much disliked by company people from the real (producing) sector, despite his penchant for deregulation and economic reform. The main reason was the restrictive monetary policy he introduced and staunchly defended. After he was viciously criticized from the ranks of the governing party, he declared in June that he would not seek a second term in September. Later he told the New York Times that he had wanted to stay on, but not for a whole term, and that premier Modi would not have that. A former commerce and law Minister, Mr. Swamy, said on the occasion of Rajan’s  departure that it would make Indian industrialists happy:

“I certainly wanted him out, and I made it clear to the prime minister, as clear as possible. (…) His audience was essentially Western, and his audience in India was transplanted westernized society. People used to come in delegations to my house to urge me to do something about it.”

A disaster that had to happen

If Rajan was involved in the preparation of this assault to declare most of Indians’ banknotes illegal – and there should be little doubt about that, given his personal and institutional links and the importance of Reserve Bank of India in the provision of cash – he had ample reason to stay in the background. After all, it cannot have surprised anyone closely involved in the matter, that this would result in chaos and extreme hardship, especially for the majority of poor and rural Indians, who were flagged as the supposed beneficiaries of the badly misnamed “financial-inclusion”-drive. USAID and partners had analysed the situation extensively and found in the Beyond-Cash-report that 97% of transactions were done in cash and that only 55% of Indians had a bank account. They also found that even of these bank accounts, “only 29% have been used in the last three months“.

All this was well known and made it a certainty that suddenly abolishing most cash would cause severe and even existential problems to many small traders and producers and to many people in remote regions without banks. When it did, it became obvious, how false the promise of financial inclusion by digitalization of payments and pushing back cash has always been. There simply is no other means of payment that can compete with cash in allowing everybody with such low hurdles to participate in the market economy.

However, for Visa, Mastercard and the other payment service providers, who were not affected by these existential problems of the huddled masses, the assault on cash will most likely turn out a big success, “scaling up” digital payments in the “trial region”. After this chaos and with all the losses that they had to suffer, all business people who can afford it, are likely to make sure they can accept digital payments in the future. And consumers, who are restricted in the amount of cash they can get from banks now, will use opportunities to pay with cards, much to the benefit of Visa, Mastercard and the other members of the extended Better Than CashAlliance.

Why Washington is waging a global war on cash

The business interests of the US-companies that dominate the gobal IT business and payment systems are an important reason for the zeal of the US-government in its push to reduce cash use worldwide, but it is not the only one and might not be the most important one. Another motive is surveillance power that goes with increased use of digital payment. US-intelligence organizations and IT-companies together can survey all international payments done through banks and can monitor most of the general stream of digital data. Financial data tends to be the most important and valuable.

Even more importantly, the status of the dollar as the worlds currency of reference and the dominance of US companies in international finance provide the US government with tremendous power over all participants in the formal non-cash financial system. It can make everybody conform to American law rather than to their local or international rules. German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung has recently run a chilling story describing how that works. Employees of a Geran factoring firm doing completely legal business with Iran were put on a US terror list, which meant that they were shut off most of the financial system and even some logistics companies would not transport their furniture any more. A major German bank was forced to fire several employees upon US request, who had not done anything improper or unlawful.

There are many more such examples. Every internationally active bank can be blackmailed by the US government into following their orders, since revoking their license to do business in the US or in dollar basically amounts to shutting them down. Just think about Deutsche Bank, which had to negotiate with the US treasury for months whether they would have to pay a fne of 14 billion dollars and most likely go broke, or get away with seven billion and survive. If you have the power to bankrupt the largest banks even of large countries, you have power over their governments, too. This power through dominance over the financial system and the associated data is already there. The less cash there is in use, the more extensive and secure it is, as the use of cash is a major avenue for evading this power.

Modi’s New Year Speech: More Black Money Lies

There were some big whoppers in Modi’s propaganda blast on New Year’s Eve, which I sat through so that you, dear reader,  would not have to subject yourself to the tedium:

MODI-SPIN:

$500 and $1000 rupees notes (the old notes that were banned) were mainstays of the black economy.

FACT:

That would make the vegetable vendor, fish-monger, housewife, pensioner, and local shop-keeper all “black,” according to monetary moron Modi.

Of course, they are not. What with inflation, those notes are practically staples of normal day-to-day cash transactions: payment of daily wage workers, repairmen, and vendors.

The TV repairman takes Rs. 750 for an hour of repair on the antenna.  It would be normal to use a 500 and a couple of 100s for him. TV’s are not signs of great wealth, but widely owned by lower-middle-class  and even working-class people. A visit to the hospital, shopping at the vegetable or fish market, repairing a leaky ceiling – all of these would routinely be done with the banned notes.

MODI-MYTH

Demonetization has helped the Income Tax Department uncover more tax-evasion and money-laundering rings.

FACT

The Income Tax Department does not need demonetization to conduct raids on suspected tax-evaders. They do that in the course of their normal routine. In fact, demonetization has added NEW  rings of money-laundering and enabled corrupt bank officials to make a buck changing black to white. That explains the huge stashes (hundreds of thousands to millions)  of the new Rs. 2000 notes being busted all over the country.

MODI-MYTH:

The hard part is over. Corruption, drugs, trafficking, porn, and all other evils are based on black money held in cash and they have all suffered a permanent blow. Ramrajya is here.

FACT:

The largest part of black-money is digitally circulated in and out of India through market avenues such as round-tripping and participatory notes, neither of which was even mentioned in the Modi speech.  Black money is parked mostly in foreign bank accounts, in real estate, and in gold and diamonds. Far from helping eradicate corruption, cash bans and digitilization make it much easier for large players (like the government, large corporate entities and criminals) to manipulate and steal money from the ordinary man.

The aam admi’s troubles have only begun. He is being ruthlessly herded, through bribes and threats, into digital platforms for which he and the Indian infrastructure are ill-prepared.

MODI-MYTH:

More cash deposited at the banks will bring down inflation.

FACT:

One of the biggest problems with targeting black-money, is the inflationary consequences of sucking money out of hard assets and foreign accounts. Once in the country, they are bound to increase the supply of money in the country and pump up inflation.

Demonetization just changes the part of the economy where cash circulates.

It moves cash from the informal sector and small businesses to the formal economy and big businesses and government (banks lending to developers and companies).

It penalizes the winners in the free markets (the small businesses) and rewards the  losers (developers-government-banks-large corporations) .

It reverses the decision of the market and replaces it with a mandate from the center.

More deposits in banks means more money available against which banks can make loans.

Indeed, recapitalization of  banks with huge non-performing assets (bad loans to big industrialists and developers) is one of the real reasons for demonetization, not eradicating corruption – a story put out to hoodwink the public.

One example. Is Modi going after Vijay Mallya of Kingfisher for non-payment of loans? Why, on the other hand, is he unable to waive loans that hard-working farmers have been unable to repay for reasons they cannot control – like the failure of rains?

And why is only Vijay Mallya mentioned in Indian media reports? Mallya is only a front for Rothschild interests….

in the same way that Khodorkovsky was a front for Rothschild interests.

What about the vast public sector loans made to the scion of the Tata drug-running fortune, Ratan Tata, a Rothschild cohort, to purchase   over-priced Corus steel (at $12.1 billion) on the advice of N. M. Rothschild, the merchant banker?

The purchase was made at the height of the commodity boom, only 6 years after Corus was a penny-stock.

Tata is another friend of the Rothschilds, getting low-priced loans from Indian public sector banks to help out Corus, and selling his cars in India at twice the price they fetch in the international market.

Corus, originally British steel, foundered on the demands of highly paid unionized British workers, with their plush pensions.

MODI-MYTH:

The main problem in India is corruption and dishonesty, a problem of culture, to be addressed forcibly by the government.

FACT:

Corruption or graft in India, as elsewhere, is a symptom, not a cause of India’s woes.

Behind the symptom is the real cause, which is is not cultural, but political: the replacement of a healthily functioning economy by a system of political patronage run from the center.

In a patronage system, WHO  you are and WHOM you know are more important that WHAT you do.

Instead of competing honestly for money, through providing better services, businesses are forced to compete for favor from the political class.

This necessity has dribbled down into the lowest-class from the highest.

Call it trickle-down graft.

Why is the center so influential?

Ultimately, it’s because of the life-blood of the economy – money – is controlled from the bank at the center – the RBI.

Furthermore, behind the RBI is a more remote but far more powerful center – the BIS.

Behind the BIS stands the great central controller, the globalist Rothschild cabal.

The prevalence of corruption in a society thus has little to do with the innate honesty or lack of honesty among people.

In a famous 2013 survey of major cities all over the world, the Reader’s Digest ((not known to be unfriendly to the West) actually found that when money-laden wallets were dropped on the road, the two cities where they were most often returned with the money intact and the reward refused, were Helsinki and Mumbai.

Notably, Helsinki is in Finland, which is ranked at the top of corruption-indices. Mumbai is in India, which is ranked toward the lower end of most corruption indices.

That says a great deal about such indices. It says even more about the divergence between the POLITICAL category of “corruption” and the MORAL category of honesty.

By deliberately confusing the two, practiced RSS propagandist Modi has dressed up  a thoroughly political project, a black operation hatched by the Anglo-Zionists,  in the swadeshi  (home-made) and swachha (white) robes of national health and morality.

 

Modi Revives Iconography Of Delhi/Hindi Empire

A fascinating and insightful look at the imagery and numerals on the new currency notes:

Reserve Bank of India has put up the designs of the new 500 and 2000 notes on its website. They confirm what many feared – that this design overhaul will be used to push certain iconographies that suit the incumbent BJP government. The difference between the old design and the new seem to be centered on three things: Hindi, Delhi and Narendra Modi.

The new currency notes introduce numerals in Devanagri script, the present script of Hindi. This was not the case in earlier version of the currency notes. Is it the case that the government thinks that only Hindi people should be able to read the numerals in a script they are familiar with while the rest of us, the non-Hindi majority, would not need to read numerals in our languages? Was there any complaint from any quarter than the stand-alone Arabic (or Hindu-Arabic as it is sometimes called) numerals in English script were not being able to do the job? Why was there no Hindi-Devanagri numeral before this? May be because it is actually unconstitutional and in contravention of a Presidential order. Article 343 of the Constitution of the Indian union states in no uncertain terms that, ““[t]he form of numerals to be used for the official purposes of the union shall be the international form of Indian numerals”. The only modification to this comes in the form of the 1960 Presidential order, which allows for “the use of Devanagari numerals, in addition to the international numerals, in the Hindi publications of the Central Ministries depending upon the public intended to be addressed and the subject-matter of the publication. For scientific, technical and statistical publications… the international numerals should be adopted uniformly in all publications”.

×

 

The present Government of India and the Reserve Bank of India should explain how all-India currency bank-notes fall within the category of “Hindi publications of the Central Ministries” and how does the choice of Devanagari satisfy the clause of “depending upon the public intended to be addressed”. Does the Government of India, and RBI exist to serve only Hindi speakers? They might believe so. But non-Hindi linguistic groups are bound to Hindi people and to each other, only by the compact of the constitution and not by the Hindi imperialist whims or ideologies of the union government and its agencies. …..

A proportion of the currency notes could have had numerals in Devanagari, a proportion could have had Bangla, a proportion could have had Tamil and so on, based on population proportion of citizens using those languages. This is the model of the Euro, where it is a single currency, but there are specific variants to accommodate the diverse stake-holders. But doing that or even the present usage of Devanagari would need a constitutional amendment. The BJP, in its efforts to impose Hindi, is reopening the wounds of 1965 anti-Hindi imposition struggles that have not been forgotten by non-Hindi peoples. In this regard, the British had done a much better job, where numerals all many South Asian languages were given equal footing in font size, vis-à-vis English. Thus English, Hindi, Urdu, Bangla, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, etc all had same font size numerals on bank notes as evidenced in the 10-rupee currency note of 1910.

The new notes also have the new Indian currency sign. That sign, derived from the “R” letter in Devanagari, was not chosen with the consent of the people. In my language Bangla and also in Assamese, the word for the currency unit is Taka or Toka. That starts with “T”. How can then the “R” sound be a general stand-in for all of us? And how did this get into the new currency note? How would have “R” people felt if a symbol for “T” sound were used instead? How is the sound of the currency name for Hindi people more important than the sound for Bengali or Assamese people? One might argue that it is called Rupees in English and that has R. That too is without consent of non-Hindi people and is a term handed down by the British. In Bengal, almost everyone grows up calling their currency as Taka, same as what they call it in Bangladesh.

GOI 1

Such words are not categories of nationalism but words of everyday use. By downplaying them, a whole people are classified as second class. While English is a foreign language for all, Hindi is also a foreign language for all non-Hindi people……. In a diverse, federal Union of States, like the Indian Union, the legendary Tamil Nadu leader and Chief Minister had laid down a principle that every citizen must share advantages and disadvantages equally. The usage of Hindi/Devanagari violates this fundamental principle of peaceful coexistence and cooperation as it is not equidistant from all stake-holders and give undue advantage to those for whom this is the mother-tongue and standard script. English provides that equal distance. The Indian union itself is the product of coordination and cross-linking of disparate ethno-linguistic nationalities mediated by English knowing elites of their respective groups. Most trans-linguistic discussions on political issues in the Indian union happen in English.

Thirdly, the actual proportion of area or real-estate on the currency note that is given to Devanagari vis-à-vis other language scripts has gone up. This is a very serious affair. The relative space and size of Devanagari-Hindi things vis-a-vis our non-Hindi mother tongues reflects exactly what New Delhi thinks of the rest of us vis-a-vis Hindi. And there is a temporal pattern to it that has gone from equality to inequality…… This marginalisation of non-Hindi languages has continued unabashed. The equal proportion to all South Asian languages in the 1917 bank note as well as the 1940 bank note was replaced by a currency series that continued for the longest time after the 1947 transfer of power that privileged Hindi over everything else. 1947 sadly marks the watershed year for the loss of status for non-Hindi languages. … The pace of that has visibly quickened with a militant edge under the present BJP regime in New Delhi.

GOI2

Thus, in RBI issued currency notes, Hindi-Devanagari words are big and are supposed to carry information. Non-Hindi language scripts are progressively smaller and are basically decoration with no practical use except for non-Hindi citizens to console themselves that “diversity” is alive, though certainly not kicking. …..Hindi mother tongue people form about 25 percent of the Indian population – that number too is arrived at after counting various linguistically non-Hindi languages as Hindi, because New Delhi orders so according to its political agenda.

Fourthly, the new currency notes do not have all the scripts of all the languages recognised in the VIII Schedule of the Constitution. Santhali is an example of an VIII Schedule language with its own Olchiki script that remains unrepresented in the currency note. Sanskrit with less than 20000 self-reported speakers is represented while Santhali with nearly 70 lakh speakers is not. The same goes for Meiteilon (Manipuri), which is an VIII Schedule language with its own script. The new currency note was an opportunity to include Santhali and Meiteilon but clearly Hindi and its expansion is the only driving force in the linguistic changes. People should know that the Indian union government considers languages to be a security issue! Which is why language groups and their scripts have to have their official stamp of recognition and approval from the Union Home Ministry.

…..As we speak, the union government is forcing small linguistic groups to adopt Devanagari as their official script and withholding recognition if they don’t agree. Thus, we find the absurd situation where speakers of Bodo, whose territorial homelands are not connected to any Hindi region, have been forced to adopt Devanagari. Thus, Hindi majority bureaucrats in the union government are killing the autonomous choice of a linguistic group in deciding their own future. And the government is shameless enough to celebrate International Mother Language Day.

The old currency notes tried to avoid location-based political symbolism except for the Parliament House in the denomination of 50 that arguably is for all. However, the Red Fort of Delhi in the new 500 denomination touches a raw nerve for many. The Red Fort was the political headquarters of the Mughal Empire for a long time.

[Lila: To me, this is more proof that Modi is actually posturing when he engages in sabre-rattling about Islam. One notices that he is quite obsequious to the Saudi ruling class…..the NWO uses Islam as a proxy for its own goals, witness the use of Islamic migrants to spearhead a movement to deconstruct European culture.]

Indian union came into existence in 1947. It is not a successor state to the Mughal Empire. The Red Fort is a sign of pre-British Delhi-based imperialism, signifying the power of imperial invaders who attacked the countries of Bengalis, Marathis, Axomiya, Odiyas and many others. Our ancestors resisted such invasions but Delhi won by brute power. Imperial Delhi ruled by posting mostly Hindi/Urdu speaking military people in our homelands…….

The use of the “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” (Clean India expedition) logo accompanied byits Hindi slogan in Devanagari script crosses all limits of propriety. Never before has a government put one of its own schemes on something as non-partisan and common as a currency note. This mischief would basically result in an advertisement of the present government for all times to come, till these currency notes are withdrawn. This is certainly not illegal but not all shameless things aren’t illegal. This starts a very unhealthy precedent. Now, nothing stops any later day union government to use currency notes as their pet scheme advertising billboards. The abuse started earlier during the Congress regime with the use of the face of MK Gandhi, who was associated with a particular party that is still in business and were opposed by other parties who are also still in business.

Narendra Modi announced the new currency notes after the 500-1000 demonetisation announcement. His address was in Hindi, without any subtitles and then in English, with Hindi subtitles. So, the union government does care whether Hindi speakers comprehend the English speech but doesn’t care whether the majority of the citizens, that is, non-Hindi-English speakers understand anything at all. This imperial attitude, that treats a majority of the citizens as second class, was furthered by all PSU (that is New Delhi controlled) banks that mostly did not care to print any information for the public in their mother tongues. Last heard, the new currency notes do not match the structural specifications of the ATM machines all over. Since the top-down imposition of currency notes by New Delhi is sacred, all the ATM machines have to be structurally changed to match and fit what New Delhi has produced. “

Petition For Inquiry Into Death of Former TN Chief

Many of us in Tamil Nadu have been wondering about the death of former Chief Minister, the hugely popular but autocratic ex-film star and dancer, Jayalalitha.

Known as Amma, the charismatic leader had been arrested on “disproportionate assets” charges at the time she was admitted to hospital for dehydration.

She seemed to have got better but was suddenly sent back to ICU for a cardiac arrest, to which she eventually succumbed.

The unexpected relapse and the secrecy around her end have fueled speculation about foul play only aggravated by the BJP government’s shockingly militarized tax raid on the TN chief secretary whom she had directly appointed. Now, cases have been filed to open an inquiry into her death:

The former Tamil Nadu chief minister died on December 5 and not satisfied with the authorities view about the cause of death, a petition was filed in Chennai High Court by AIADMK cadre seeking 3 member bench to investigate Jayalalithaa’s death. The petition is to be heard tomorrow. Jayalalithaa, popularly known as “Amma” among her supporters, breathed her last at Chennai’s Apollo Hospitals on December 5 where she was admitted on September 22 with fever and dehydration. Last week too, Chennai-based NGO, filed a Public interest Litigation (PIL) in the Supreme Court that raised doubt over the circumstances in which Jayalalithaa died.”

Defects In New Notes Enable Counterfeiting

The new $500 rupee notes are reportedly defective:

In its hurry to meet the demand for new notes, the Reserve Bank of India has made major errors which can have serious consequences for the demonetisation exercise. The gaffe — RBI has printed two variants of the new Rs 500 notes.

According to a report in The Times of India, the newspaper has seen at least three case studies where the new Rs 500 note varied from each other. According to one customer quoted in the report, Gandhi’s face has a more than visible shadow. Apart from this, he has pointed to alignment issues with the national emblem and also serial numbers.

Another Mumbai resident has told the newspaper that the colours of the notes he got were different. The report has cited one more such instance of variation.

Meanwhile, a RBI spokesperson has termed them as “printing defects” that have propped up because of “the current rush”. She has also said people can still freely use it for transactions or even return it to the central bank.

One thing is for sure: the same note with different features would mean confusion for the common man. It will be easy for the ‘experts’ in counterfeiting to cash in on this confusion.

How is the common man to know whether the Rs 500 note he has is indeed original or fake? It has to be remembered that the fake note circulation has been rampant in India despite the RBI’s frequent notifications on how to detect such notes.

Clearly, the awareness level among the general public about the security features of currency notes is very low. Notes with slight variations in features will only add to the confusion about the features.

Announcing the decision to withdraw Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and issue new ones on 8 November, the prime minister had said that the move was aimed at destroying the counterfeit racket, ending terror funding and also stop black money generation.

If the haste has resulted in errors that will only facilitate counterfeiting, then it will kill the very objective of the demonetisation exercise.

[Lila: I beg to differ. It is very clear to me that the objective of demonetization was to attack and destroy the cash economy and facilitate further such attacks, requiring more and more digitalization and police state measures.]

Interestingly, the RBI had published on its site the security features of the new Rs 500 notes before the notes came into circulation.

It will be better for the RBI to find some practical solution to the problem before any damage is done.”

The defects in the news notes, added to the introduction of Rs 2000 note, as well as reports of new types of black markets emerging in relation to the note-ban, substantiate my theory that note-bandhi is a weapon OF the counterfeiters and of the black money of the global cabal.

It is intended to be used against economic and political opponents SELECTIVELY.

Thus, income tax raids have become a tool to crush selective mafias.

Most fascinatingly, THE ENEMY IS THE HINDU. 

This underscores once again that the elevation of Hindi and Delhi is an elevation (by the global corporatists behind Modi) of language and location, but not of Hindu religion and culture.

It is an elevation of the middle-class Hindi- speaking constituency of the BJP , not of Hinduism.

The ban on notes was intended to crush the black money channels of the political and economic competitors of the globalists.

But, it was also intended, it seems, to facilitate money-laundering and counterfeiting by the current government and its friends, hence the repeated back-tracking and confusion; the defective counterfeit detection machinery; the pressure placed on the banking system.

We saw the same sort of selectivity during the 2008 economic collapse in the US.

At the time, what the major media termed a bail-out and transfer of toxic assets turned out to be a form of inter-bank cannibalism, with the tax-payer footing the bill.

Something similar is at work here.

I firmly believe that the notes being inserted now will be counterfeited and that will compound the confusion about numbers coming from the RBI.

The chaos will make the insertion of excess notes very easy.

We could then have massive inflation, despite inflation-targeting policies on paper.

This will be more economic and financial war…terror…brought to the aam admi in India.

2004 McKinsey Report: Indian Informal Economy Dangerous

The roots of DeMo are deep in the globalization project.

The outsourcing agency responsible for the opening up of the Indian economy to Western interests, often in the most predatory fashion, was McKinsey and it was McKinsey that was bent on regulating and taxing the informal sector in India as far back as 2004.

Most tellingly, one of the reasons it gave for the need to introduce a Goods & Services Tax was the information such a tax would give on those businesses.

In business, information is money. Taxes thus become a way to subject rival businesses to surveillance and theft. The GST is next on Narendra Modi’s agenda, proving once again that the whole demonetization scheme is nothing more than the next step in the globalist project.

As a 2004 McKinsey report titled The Hidden Dangers of the Informal Economy put it pithily, “Informal companies evade fiscal and regulatory obligations, including value-added taxes, income taxes, labor market obligations (such as social-security taxes and minimum-wage requirements) and product market regulations (including quality standards, copyrights, and intellectual-property laws).” So far, governments in India have turned a blind eye to these illegalities, not least because they were worried about the consequences on employment and on the economy if they decided to enforce the rules. But it seems the present government not only wants to change that policy, but also wants to force the pace of change.

It is, of course, a laudable objective and the decision to force it through is a bold move. The big question though is: will it work? The McKinsey report is very critical of the informal sector, because its avoidance of regulation and taxes gives it an unfair advantage over firms in the formal economy, who are unable to increase their market share despite being far more productive and efficient. The report wants governments to start enforcing the rules against the informal firms, so that the formal sector benefits.

Significantly, it says value-added tax is a good place to start, since it enables the government to gain information about the informal firms and then go after them. It’s no surprise then that the government is trying to push through a comprehensive goods & services tax (GST). And that’s not the only place where the government seems to be heeding McKinsey’s advice—the report also says, “Another way of improving enforcement is for governments to partner with payments providers such as banks and credit card companies to increase the number of monetary transactions accurately recorded by the collections system and thus to raise the quality of the data available to tax enforcers.” The government’s push to a digital economy is precisely on these lines.

The expectation is that the short-term pain will lead to long-term gain. The benefits are expected to come from more tax revenue collected, which can then be used by the government to provide sops for the masses. The coming budget, for instance, is expected to echo this approach. The benefits are also expected as more firms join the formal economy, with access to funds and technology. The hope is that informal businesses will transform themselves from being the dirty underbelly of Indian capitalism into respectable, tax-paying, suited and booted members of a sleek, productive and bourgeois modern India.

Will the audacious gamble succeed? The McKinsey report didn’t think that informal firms could change so easily. It pointed out that informal businesses tend to structure their supplier and customer relationships in ways that make it difficult to go above board later, that customers of an informal firm come to expect very low prices, and many would go elsewhere if it transformed itself into a formal company and had to raise them. Indeed, the report said, “The idea that informal businesses might grow and join the formal economy is therefore a myth.”

Many firms in the informal economy would cease to be competitive if they are exposed to the full brunt of taxation and regulations of the formal economy. A 2014 paper by Rafael Porta of the Tuck School of Business and Andrei Shleifer of Harvard University, published in the Journal of Economic Perspectives, concluded thus: “we are skeptical of all policies that might tax or regulate informal firms. Rather than encourage informal firms to become formal, such policies may have the effect of driving them out of business, leading to poverty and destitution of informal workers and entrepreneurs. The recognition of the fundamental fact that informal firms are extremely inefficient recommends extreme caution with policies that impose on them any kind of additional costs.”

In other words, shock therapy such as demonetisation could very well turn out to be counter-productive. Instead, Porta and Shleifer say the cure for informality is economic growth. The evidence shows that informality declines, albeit slowly, with development. An 2009 OECD paper on Informality and Informal Employment also came to the conclusion that policies that make it more difficult for informal firms to carry out their activities and stricter enforcement of laws and regulations “have contributed to increased poverty and vulnerability by pushing already vulnerable groups of people into even more difficult situations.” What the government should instead aim for is expanding the formal sector, by making it easier for firms to operate there. But that is easier said than done and the record of the formal sector in creating jobs has been dismal.

The saving grace is that much of the talk about a transition to a cashless economy will remain just rhetoric. It’s also likely the government will soon realise that forcing the pace of change on the informal economy carries with it huge costs and it will opt instead for less ambitious, less intrusive methods.

Massive Fines and Possible Jail For Holding Old Notes

This gets worse and worse.

Now, a new RBI (Reserve Bank of India) ordinance (the 61st on this issue) proclaims that people who hang onto the old notes after the deadline of December 30, will be faced with a minimum penalty of Rs. 50,000 (half a lakh or about 735$) – a sum that is enormous in terms of Indian per capita income…..and will be guilty of a crime punishable at the municipal level.

What’s the real reason for this?

Well, since one of the main reasons for this ban was to ensure that Indian banks, especially the State Bank of India (now one of the top 50 largest banks in the world), were sufficiently recapitalized so that the loans could start flowing again. This, after the ratio of non-performing loans (mostly to rich industrialists and developers whom Modi shows not signs of penalizing) rose too high for comfort.

Since most of the money declared illegal has been deposited appropriately, demonstrating that they were all largely legitimate cash holdings, Modi has had to find a way to make this bizarre financial experiment/attack look at least faintly rational.

He also has to make sure any remaining notes do not find their way back into the system and constitute a claim against it.  Penalizing old-note-holders and making their holding itself contraband is the solution, it looks like.

Forbes: DeMo Is Sickening, Bizarre, Immoral

Ucnews.in references Steve Forbes’ scathing denunciation of the immorality of demonetization, one of the few pieces in the media that gets to the nub of the matter: this is not about poor implementation or lack of foresight; this is about a fundamental violation of basic rights:

Steve Forbes, in a no-holds-barred column, has said: “What India has done to its money is sickening and immoral.” Well that’s just the title of the column.

Forbes has written, and it must be quoted: “India’s government perpetrated an unprecedented act that is not only damaging its economy and threatening destitution to countless millions of its already poor citizens but also breathtaking in its immorality.”

Further: “Not since India’s short-lived forced-sterilization program in the 1970s – this bout of Nazi-like eugenics was instituted to deal with the country’s ‘overpopulation’ – has the government engaged in something so immoral. It claims the move will fight corruption and tax evasion by allegedly flushing out illegal cash, crippling criminal enterprises and terrorists and force-marching India into a digitized credit system.”

“India is the most extreme and destructive example of the anti-cash fad currently sweeping governments and the economics profession. Countries are moving to ban high-denomination bills, citing the rationales trotted out by New Delhi. But there’s no misunderstanding what this is truly about: attacking your privacy and inflicting more government control over your life.”

“What India has done is commit a massive theft of people’s property without even the pretense of due process – a shocking move for a democratically elected government.”

Steve Forbes has not held back. He has said that by “further impoverishing the least fortunate among its population and undermining social trust, thereby poisoning politics and hurting future investment, India has immorally and unnecessarily harmed its people, while setting a dreadful example for the rest of the world”.

In other words, Forbes is saying that India has just demonstrated how it feels to commit a financial genocide with élan, turning the entire country into a laboratory of extremely unethical fiscal eugenics experiments, turning citizens to guinea pigs of monetary mayhem.

However, the cheerleaders of the prime minister are busy positing this as a global conspiracy against India, a concerted attempt to write off a move that is morally superior because ostensibly it would purge the country of wrongdoers such as black money hoarders and terrorists using counterfeit notes. Those claims have been razed to dust already.

But what is terrifying is the meekness expected of citizens en masse at present. Any Indian echoing Forbes, and there are many, would be branded as an anti-national.”

 

RBI Refuses to Release Minutes Of Nov. 8 Meeting

Business Standard:

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has refused to allow access to of meetings held to decide on the issue of of Rs 1000 and Rs 500 notes announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on November 8.

 

Responding to an RTI application filed by activist Venkatesh Nayak, the bankers’ bank refused to disclose the of the crucial meetings of Central Board of Directors on the issue of citing section 8(1)(a) of the transparency law.

 

The section exempts disclosure of information which would prejudicially affect the sovereignty and integrity of India, the security, strategic, scientific or economic interests of the state, relation with foreign state or lead to incitement of an offence.

 

Nayak said he will appeal against the decision, adding, “While confidentiality prior to the making of the decision is understandable, continued secrecy after the decision is implemented is difficult to understand when crores of Indians including this author have faced difficulties due to the shortage of cash in the economy.”

 

The Doomsday Seed Bank, Control Of Food, and Biowar

Bill Engdahl at Global Research on the Bill Gates Foundation, its doomsday seed bank, and biological warfare using food:

We can legitimately ask why Bill Gates and the Rockefeller Foundation along with the major genetic engineering agribusiness giants such as DuPont and Syngenta, along with CGIAR are building the Doomsday Seed Vault in the Arctic.

Who uses such a seed bank in the first place? Plant breeders and researchers are the major users of gene banks. Today’s largest plant breeders are Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta and Dow Chemical, the global plant-patenting GMO giants. Since early in 2007 Monsanto holds world patent rights together with the United States Government for plant so-called ‘Terminator’ or Genetic Use Restriction Technology (GURT). Terminator is an ominous technology by which a patented commercial seed commits ‘suicide’ after one harvest. Control by private seed companies is total. Such control and power over the food chain has never before in the history of mankind existed.

This clever genetically engineered terminator trait forces farmers to return every year to Monsanto or other GMO seed suppliers to get new seeds for rice, soybeans, corn, wheat whatever major crops they need to feed their population. If broadly introduced around the world, it could within perhaps a decade or so make the world’s majority of food producers new feudal serfs in bondage to three or four giant seed companies such as Monsanto or DuPont or Dow Chemical.

That, of course, could also open the door to have those private companies, perhaps under orders from their host government, Washington, deny seeds to one or another developing country whose politics happened to go against Washington’s. Those who say ‘It can’t happen here’ should look more closely at current global events. The mere existence of that concentration of power in three or four private US-based agribusiness giants is grounds for legally banning all GMO crops even were their harvest gains real, which they manifestly are not.

These private companies, Monsanto, DuPont, Dow Chemical hardly have an unsullied record in terms of stewardship of human life. They developed and proliferated such innovations as dioxin, PCBs, Agent Orange. They covered up for decades clear evidence of carcinogenic and other severe human health consequences of use of the toxic chemicals. They have buried serious scientific reports that the world’s most widespread herbicide, glyphosate, the essential ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide that is tied to purchase of most Monsanto genetically engineered seeds, is toxic when it seeps into drinking water.9 Denmark banned glyphosate in 2003 when it confirmed it has contaminated the country’s groundwater.10

The diversity stored in seed gene banks is the raw material for plant breeding and for a great deal of basic biological research. Several hundred thousand samples are distributed annually for such purposes. The UN’s FAO lists some 1400 seed banks around the world, the largest being held by the United States Government. Other large banks are held by China, Russia, Japan, India, South Korea, Germany and Canada in descending order of size. In addition, CGIAR operates a chain of seed banks in select centers around the world.

CGIAR, set up in 1972 by the Rockefeller Foundation and Ford Foundation to spread their Green Revolution agribusiness model, controls most of the private seed banks from the Philippines to Syria to Kenya. In all these present seed banks hold more than six and a half million seed varieties, almost two million of which are ‘distinct.’ Svalbard’s Doomsday Vault will have a capacity to house four and a half million different seeds.

GMO as a weapon of biowarfare?

Now we come to the heart of the danger and the potential for misuse inherent in the Svalbard project of Bill Gates and the Rockefeller foundation. Can the development of patented seeds for most of the world’s major sustenance crops such as rice, corn, wheat, and feed grains such as soybeans ultimately be used in a horrible form of biological warfare?

The explicit aim of the eugenics lobby funded by wealthy elite families such as Rockefeller, Carnegie, Harriman and others since the 1920’s, has embodied what they termed ‘negative eugenics,’ the systematic killing off of undesired bloodlines. Margaret Sanger, a rapid eugenicist, the founder of Planned Parenthood International and an intimate of the Rockefeller family, created something called The Negro Project in 1939, based in Harlem, which as she confided in a letter to a friend, was all about the fact that, as she put it, ‘we want to exterminate the Negro population.’ 11

A small California biotech company, Epicyte, in 2001 announced the development of genetically engineered corn which contained a spermicide which made the semen of men who ate it sterile. At the time Epicyte had a joint venture agreement to spread its technology with DuPont and Syngenta, two of the sponsors of the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault. Epicyte was since acquired by a North Carolina biotech company. Astonishing to learn was that Epicyte had developed its spermicidal GMO corn with research funds from the US Department of Agriculture, the same USDA which, despite worldwide opposition, continued to finance the development of Terminator technology, now held by Monsanto.

In the 1990’s the UN’s World Health Organization launched a campaign to vaccinate millions of women in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines between the ages of 15 and 45, allegedly against Tentanus, a sickness arising from such things as stepping on a rusty nail. The vaccine was not given to men or boys, despite the fact they are presumably equally liable to step on rusty nails as women.

Because of that curious anomaly, Comite Pro Vida de Mexico, a Roman Catholic lay organization became suspicious and had vaccine samples tested. The tests revealed that the Tetanus vaccine being spread by the WHO only to women of child-bearing age contained human Chorionic Gonadotrophin or hCG, a natural hormone which when combined with a tetanus toxoid carrier stimulated antibodies rendering a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy. None of the women vaccinated were told.

It later came out that the Rockefeller Foundation along with the Rockefeller’s Population Council, the World Bank (home to CGIAR), and the United States’ National Institutes of Health had been involved in a 20-year-long project begun in 1972 to develop the concealed abortion vaccine with a tetanus carrier for WHO. In addition, the Government of Norway, the host to the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Vault, donated $41 million to develop the special abortive Tetanus vaccine. 12

Is it a coincidence that these same organizations, from Norway to the Rockefeller Foundation to the World Bank are also involved in the Svalbard seed bank project? According to Prof. Francis Boyle who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 enacted by the US Congress, the Pentagon is ‘now gearing up to fight and win biological warfare’ as part of two Bush national strategy directives adopted, he notes, ‘without public knowledge and review’ in 2002. Boyle adds that in 2001-2004 alone the US Federal Government spent $14.5 billion for civilian bio-warfare-related work, a staggering sum.

Rutgers University biologist Richard Ebright estimates that over 300 scientific institutions and some 12,000 individuals in the USA today have access to pathogens suitable for biowarfare. Alone there are 497 US Government NIH grants for research into infectious diseases with biowarfare potential. Of course this is being justified under the rubric of defending against possible terror attack as so much is today.

Many of the US Government dollars spent on biowarfare research involve genetic engineering. MIT biology professor Jonathan King says that the ‘growing bio-terror programs represent a significant emerging danger to our own population.’ King adds, ‘while such programs are always called defensive, with biological weapons, defensive and offensive programs overlap almost completely.’ 13

Time will tell whether, God Forbid, the Svalbard Doomsday Seed Bank of Bill Gates and the Rockefeller Foundation is part of another Final Solution, this involving the extinction of the Late, Great Planet Earth.

Notes

Gates Foundation: From Gvt Radar To RBI Policy Maker

Only last year, in May 2015, the Bill Gates Foundation was being investigated for discrepancies between its accounts and those of the Public Health Foundation of India (in Ahmedabad in Gujarat), a prominent institution in India.

This was part of the Indian government’s decision to put under the scanner a number of subversive NGOs, from the Ford Foundation to Greenpeace.

A little over a year, and the Gates Foundation now has its representative on the RBI board, giving the run around to senior board members and hurrying through an unprecedented cash ban on a scale that is gigantic.

What a transformation.

And what could have led to it?

 

 

Rothschild 9-11-On India: Modi Ban Profits DE LA RUE

The income tax fine envisaged for Modi-backer billionaire Gautam Adani, 15,000 crores, is the same figure given for  replacing the banned currency.

Bizarre coincidence or proof of conspiracy?

Image result for rothschild major fronts

Cui Bono? (who benefits)

When analyzing Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s infamous currency ban, this is the most pertinent question. 

Note: This post is a work in progress, so bear with me.

Here is the essence:

The Modi currency ban is not only part of the global war on cash.

It is  without exaggeration one of the most monstrous financial acts of any ostensibly constitutional government in recent decades.

For instance, see this excellent analysis.

From the Hindustan Times:

Samajwadi Party (SP) patriarch Yadav and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati — bitter rivals facing tough assembly elections next year — seldom speak the same language on any subject.

But they were on the same page on Thursday against the Narendra Modi-led NDA government’s decision to pull 500- and 1,000 rupee notes out of circulation.

“The Modi government has slapped Emergency without sending people to jail and the BJP cares only about elections, not the problems faced by common people. The government has spread anarchy in the entire country, common man is not even able to buy daily products,” Yadav said.”

Far from being a war ON the black market, it is a war BY black money, an act of financial terror.

How so?

First, because the rise of Narendra Modi was possible only because of the public relations firm APCO, closely tied to global oligarch interests.

And second, because billionaire Gautam Adani (6th richest Indian billionaire, worth around $10 billion) financed Modi’s campaign and Adani is credibly reported to be involved in off-shore tax-shelter schemes. Adani’s own brother, Vinod, is named in the Panama Papers leak of off-shore tax schemes.

To clarify, APCO  was the firm brought in to gloss over the scandal attending giant oil company Yukos, a Russian state asset auctioned off to Russian J***** billionaire Mikhail Khodorkovsky, using shell companies, for a fraction ($309 million for a 78% share) of its real market capitalization ($6 billion).

APCO helped get Yukos and Khodorkovsky access to the Western political establishment and helped them cover up the fact that the oil giant operated through an elaborate system of shell companies that hid taxes from Russia for years.

Convicted of fraud and tax evasion by Vladimir Putin in 2005, Khodorkovsky passed on his shares in Yukos to co-ethnic Jacob Rothschild, of the legendary banking family, whose name is now short-hand for Western establishment and oligarch interests.

The same APCO that white-washed the legalized theft of Yukos was brought in to white-wash Gujarati strong-man Modi.

APCO’s name is derived from Arnold & Porter, a Washington DC law firm that is arguably the longest-lived foreign agent on US soil.

APCO and its sister company ASERO between them house many of the leading figures of the Israeli defense and security establishment, as well as of Homeland (US) security. Among them are retired officers of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service.

Mossad, like MI6 , parts of the CIA,  and parts of RAW, is no more than the spy-agency of the global oligarchy. At the center of that oligarchy is the J*****/Khazarian banking family of Rothschild.

The same kind of schemes that hid Yukos’s operation from Russian taxation financed Modi, in the form of the Adani group’s campaign for Modi:

Ironically, the biggest black money case that has come up before the SIT so far is that of the Adani group, promoted by Gautam Adani, one of Modi’s closest associates. It is in his chartered aircraft that the soon-to-be prime minister zipped around India, accusing the incumbent government of not fighting corruption. The Adani group allegedly took out over Rs 5,000 crore to tax havens, using inflated bills for the import of power equipment from South Korea and China, the SIT on black money was told by the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

According to a senior ED official associated with the SIT, if the Adani case reaches its logical conclusion, the group will have to pay a fine of around Rs 15,000 crore. ‘It is a watertight case,’ he said, about the trail of documents showing how the group diverted Rs 5,468 crore to Mauritius via Dubai. The Adani group vehemently denies any wrongdoing. Modi, after his rhetoric-filled ride to power, has been silent.”

Coincidentally, 15,000 crores is also the estimated cost of replacing the old currency bills banned by Modi.

Coincidentally,  Dubai is also the hub from which fake currencies are brought into India.

Coincidentally, Adnani is now partnered with Israeli high-tech security/defense firm Elbit-ISTAR in the production of unmanned (robot) drones.

Elbit systems is partnered with DHS (Dept of Homeland Security) in the US on the Mexican border, operating the first unmanned drone in the US and taking the lead in the creation of a virtual wall with Mexico.

No doubt Adani-Elbit drones will soon be policing the borders between India and her neighbors, if not between Indian states.  Leaked espionage cables published by Al Jazeera document that Elbit, like Israeli telecom company Amdocs and Israeli airline El Al, routinely assists Mossad.

Given these facts, the Modi currency ban is not economic policy by the Indian government so much as  financial “shock and awe,” enacted by the powers-that-be, fronted by a useful idiot.

It is a monetary 9-11 (or in this case 11/9 – the date the ban went into effect), against the legitimate economy of cash-based small-businesses, traders, farmers, laborers, and pensioners of India. And the globalists have fixed their signature numerals and even their calling card – a Trump – on the day.

Just to make sure the public gets this, the BBC, a well-known outlet for Western oligarch propaganda, even introduced the term “shock and awe” into this piece on the subject,admitting bluntly that Modi’s currency blitzkrieg was aimed at the small trader and small business classes who had voted for him. Because they do business mostly in cash, they pay little or no taxes.

But taxes are revenues for central banks. And central banks are ultimately controlled by the international financial system. And the ultimate beneficiaries of the international financial system (BIS, IMF etc) are the Western oligarchy and its global satraps.

To underscore the connection, it was under the headship of a son of the then BBC chairman, Marmaduke Hussey, that a British currency printer with ties to MI6 manufactured fake India currency notes that ended up in the vaults of the Reserve Bank of India (see further below in this post for details).

Knowing this, it is indisputable that Modi’s currency ban is economic warfare, intended to break the backs of small traders, businesses, and farmers, and steal their market for Western and Western- affiliated multinational e-commerce and retailers.

Unless reversed, it is the first act in the dekulakization of India.

Follow the money.

IMMEDIATE BENEFICIARIES OF MODI’S CURRENCY BAN:

De La Rue, Master Card, Visa, Paytm, cryptocurrencies like the mysterious Bitcoin,* Chinese fintech investors in Indian e-commerce, like Alibaba (a front for Western oligarchy), large corporations with card-swiping technology that most small businesses in India lack, Western e-commerce and Internet portals that can step up and fill in consumer demand, as indigenous small businesses disappear.

[Elsewhere on this blog, I have warned against using Bitcoin, which, like the heavily promoted Tor, has come out of Western security R&D and likely has back-doors for the globalist intelligence services.]

The Modi ban also sent Indians rushing to buy gold, which promptly rocketed in price.

Only a year ago, the government was vigorously beating the drum for people to deposit their gold in banks and get paid for it, at much lower prices.  One suspects that at the current high prices they have created, the government and its corporate cronies have auctioned their gold deposits and made a killing.

Isn’t that corruption?

De La Rue:

A new note (November 30) added here: De La Rue was the company chosen to supply currency for Libya in 2011 after the destruction of that country. CEO Tim Cobbold publicly stated that the company found regime change to be a lucrative opportunity. He also suggested that the break-up of the Eurozone would provide De La Rue a similar opportunity. This was only shortly after DLR manufactured fake currency was found inserted into the RBI vaulta and fake currency inflows had become a significant cause of massive inflation.

Another interesting fact that I found was that current RBI governor Urjit Patel, a Gujarati with an impressive resume in Western elite institutions and  an unusual (for RBI governors) corporate background that includes Reliance, and Gujurati businesses, is of Kenyan origin.  The Kenyan government apparently co-owns the branch of De La Rue that operates in its country.

How it benefits:

De La Rue is a British currency printer to whom, along with other British and German printers, printing of Reserve Bank of India notes has been outsourced, over Congress’ protests, since 1997.

According to the Panama Papers leaks by Wikileaks, De La Rue secured its Indian contract between 2002 and 2010 by paying a 15% commission (bribe) plus a one-time $712,000 to New Delhi-based Somendra Khosla.

Note: Khosla is a Khatri Sikh name.

[As I’ve documented amply on this blog, Sikhs have been working with the Rothschild oligarchs to destabilize India: the most notable examples being the Sikh murder of former PM Indira Gandhi and recently the fraudulent vendetta against prominent Indian-Americans by former Attorney-General for New York, Preet Bharara (half Sikh, with a J*****/Israeli born wife and J***** children). Bharara has allied himself with major NGO’s, like Safe Horizon, that are led by the Rothschild cabal.]

DLR is the world’s largest printer of commercial currency and the largest manufacturer of passports. It prints 44% of all banknotes world-wide.

It is currently seeking to become a one-stop shop for related services, such as verification, identity, and security systems related to passports and currency and involving the “substrate” on which they are printed.

This means DLR is involved in producing the very machines that test bank notes for fraud, while simultaneously manufacturing counterfeit currency.

That is probably why the fake currency passed the Indian government’s tests before being spotted by Indian intelligence.

The government of India banned DLR in 2011, because fraudulent notes generated by it but originally attributed to Pakistan, were found in regional banks as well in the RBI vault, by the Bureau of Intelligence in 2010.

The main conduit into India was through Kerala via Dubai.

An intelligence study in 2011 found the level of fake to genuine currency to be higher than in other countries, at 4 in 1000. This finding was in stark contrast to the RBI’s white-wash of the situation that put the ratio at 4 in 1,000,000, a thousand times lower.

Shockingly, Dela Rue was reinstated as RBI printer, without any evidence whatsoever to show why the ban was lifted.

The reinstatement was at the behest of the Prime Minister’s office.

The reinstatement seems to have been under the governorship of Raghuram Rajan (footnote 1) who later moved on to the Bank of International Settlements (BIS), the bank that acts as a reserve for central banks.

BIS itself is controlled ultimately by the Rothschild cartel. 

How much it benefits:

The banned  500 and 1000 rupees notes constitute  86% of India’s currency in circulation.

The Indian economy is comprised substantially of cash transactions and 98% of consumer transactions are in cash. The cost of replacing the currency is estimated at Rs. 15000 crores. Thus, replacing the old currency is a lucrative contract for the company tasked with the printing. The printing of RBI currency constitutes 30% of the profits of DLR.

Ownership:

Ownership is hidden.

Relationship to Rothschild oligarchy:

Current advisor: N. M. Rothschild.

In the late 19th century, the Rothschild family (Alfred Charles de Rothschild)  and the Bank of England were active in promoting the amalgamation of the three Presidency banks in India into one Central  Bank to “administer currency  regulations” and meet the “seasonal requirements of credit.”

That is, central banks were to print bank notes and pass laws on their issue….thus granting them unlimited power over the economy.

Long-time printer for national governments all over the colonial world, but barred from printing for Britain originally, De La Rue  has had a long association with MI6.

Founded in 1821 in Basingstoke, UK, by Thomas de la Rue, a  publisher (father, Eliazar de a Rue and mother, Rachael, nee Allez, of Guernsey).

De la Rue is a medieval French name  found in Normandy. The names Eleazar and Rachael speak for themselves.

UPDATE:

A site that I will not link to, seems to have sprung up in just the past few days, to put a novel spin on the information about De La Rue that is circulating on the net. The author claims that the Modi currency ban was a defensive move against a gigantic fake currency attack (an “economic Pearl Harbor” says the website) by Pakistan, also a target of the De La Rue fake notes. The site ends by claiming that anyone who opposes the Modi ban must be termed a traitor.

The Pakistani Pearl Harbor theory might hold some water for someone completely uneducated about the deep state – the spider-like web of connections between intelligence operations and criminal networks – that underpins the global polity.

Unfortunately, I’ve been around too long to believe that the ISI (Pakistani intelligence) is the primary mover in the region, rather than those that fund and instigate the ISI .

Two pieces of evidence will dispose of the notion that the Modi ban is a defensive move:

1.  The ban was the theme of  a Gujarat-based daily, Akila, whose editor later claimed it was an April Fool’s joke.

But Kirit Ganatra, the editor, is known to be a close friend of Modi’s.

2. There was a sudden surge in deposits (Rs 3,557 billion) at commercial banks between September 16 – September 30, 2016, following a slight dip in the weeks before.

More evidence seems to be in the offing:

1. Yatin Oza, the political mentor of BJP president Amit Shah and a former BJP MLA who is now with the AAP, has alleged with some credibility that he has proof of foreknowledge of the ban among Gujarat industrialists.

2. A TV journalist and investigator Satyendra Murali has collected evidence that Modi’s announcement of the ban was prerecorded. He claims to have received death threats on account of this.

But understanding the larger picture  is even more conclusive:

1. Anil Bokil of the Pune-based think-tank Arthakranthi has met Modi a few months back and suggested several reforms intended to change India into a cashless society. Among them was the banning of currency bills with a face-value of Rs. 1000, 500, and 100. Modi is reported to have been fascinated by his presentation.

Arthkranthi is likely a front for Western interests, like a lot of such NGO’s and think-tanks springing up of a sudden.

2. Moving to a cashless society is a long-term goal of the global elites and a ban on cash has been implemented in other countries recently, although none in the draconian and extreme manner of the Modi ban.

Like numberless trolls and disinformation agents on the net, the site proposing a “Pakistani Pearl Harbor” appears to have sprung to life solely to intimidate critics of the Modi ban.

All the more reason why rational and humane people must persist in educating people about what’s really going on, while they are still able to do it.

  1. Rajan’s father, Govindrajan, is described as a diplomat, but was actually a member of RAW, India’s equivalent to the CIA, that, in the past decades, has often been penetrated/compromised by CIA agents, as well as by Mossad and MI6. Govindrajan was reportedly demoted by Rajiv Gandhi for failing to anticipate the Bofors scandal, according to some sites, and, according to others, for sending his son Raghuram  to study for his PhD at Chicago University with funding from CIA-tainted NGO’s. Rajan’s appointment to the RBI was greeted by the kind of adulation that the global media barons only reserve for their stooges.

Rothschild War On India Ramps Up Under Fake Nationalist Modi

Rothschild 9-11 on India: Modi Ban Profits De La Rue 

Post:

The big story in India, on November 8, just the day before the election of Donald Trump as US president, was the Modi government’s ban of 1000 and 500 rupee notes.

Just the value of the notes – the equivalent of a few dollars – should have made any one with one solitary brain-cell realize that the ban could not possibly have anything to do with “black” money usually held in foreign accounts, gold, and real estate.

In the last two years, soaring inflation had led the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) to issue larger quantities of those denominations:

That chart should raise questions.

The chairman of the RBI from 2013-2015 was Raghuram Rajan, who is now credited at Wikipedia with having warned presciently about the risks to the financial sector in 2005. But in fact, Rajan, whose resume reads like that of the typical emissary of the banking elites (IMF, BIS and other appointments) seems to have been hired to implement the globalist project to harness the powerful cash economy that kept India afloat to the banking sector. I raise the issue of Rajan’s loyalties here.

“Black money,” that is, money hidden from government taxation, has been a big broad target of the Western oligarchy for a while.

Not because the Western elites have any objection to black money and money-laundering when THEY do it. Perish the thought.

In the West, the market and government black operations (do I repeat myself?) are both propped up by nothing more than money laundered from all kind of shady businesses in which the intelligence agencies of the afore-mentioned elites have a sizable share –  porn, prostitution, drugs, and gambling.

Anyone who looks into the history of American banks like Wells Fargo and Citibank or any of a number of European and Israeli multinational banks, knows this.  I say American and European, but of course the leadership of the banking system is mostly Jewish or shabbos goy, despite variations in citizenship and location.

The most effective money-laundering in the world isn’t in banana-republics or in far-eastern gambling dens.

It’s here in the good old United States, in our own backyard...in states like Nevada and New Mexico and Delaware and Alaska and Wyoming.

Furthermore, friends of Uncle Sam, like Israel, or the UK and its island havens, the and many many other places, are awash with loopholes through which you could unload a dump truck full of illicit dollar bills.

Mind you, I am all for protecting the privacy of  financial investments. That’s not my gripe here.

But you cannot host most of the anonymous companies in the world on your own soil and then fund a vicious global campaign against “foreign’ black money and expect anyone to take it at face-value.

It is no more to be taken at face-value than any of the petty bills that Modi, a Western stooge posing as a cow-belt nationalist, has taken out.

The fact that the ban has repeatedly been dubbed a “surgical strike” by the Indian media shows just how many dupes and lackeys of the Western press barons infest the Indian media:

The narrative of the War on Terror having become a little thread-bare, the new War on Black Money has been trotted out to make Indians a little more amenable to their coming enslavement to the global banking mafia.

Anyone wanting to understand what is actually going on should go over the the blog, Great Game India, which I first spotted when I shared information with it on the Devayani Khobragade story, which was also a coordinated attack on India.

The Rothschild war on India is real:-

The murder of Indian scientists,

the Stuxnet attacks on Indian infrastructure,

the propaganda about rape,

the Nannygate attack on Indian civil servants,

the drive to force Indians into the banking system

are about nothing less than shackling the economic power of this struggling Asian giant.

The objective is to stop it becoming the prosperous world power that it was before the advent of the European empires – Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, French, and finally English – every one of them instigated and manipulated by the money-power of  the global Sanhedrin.

 

 

 

More Disinformation Sites

Image result for spy vs spy images

Credit: Mad Magazine.

One  positive for me from the elections and their aftermath was the confirmation of my suspicions about some websites.I’ve linked to them in the past because they had information I couldn’t find anywhere else, but now they seem almost palpably misleading…in a clever way.

Which sites?

The most obvious one is a popular left-wing site that focuses on pedophilic networks. It makes interesting connections, but it does it very loosely and often in a way that ultimately discredits its own thesis.

But the real clincher for me was something I can’t really reveal, because it would tip off the writers behind the site. I suspect they are CIA. intelligence of some kind..and not the white hats either.

Disinformation site number  one is –

Aangirfan

The next site is allegedly conservative. I say allegedly because if you read closely there are a number of  problems. I will sum up the issues here by suggesting that if your medium (the pictures you display, for example) are in contradiction to your stated positions, then you are suspect.

And if you  repeatedly promote positions that undermine your arguments, you are suspect. And if you pass off wild accusations as fact, you are suspect.

Disinformation site number two is –

Henry Makow

[Update, Nov. 22] A reader asks for clues.  

So here’s one for Makow: Aloyzius Fosdyke? The Flat Earth conspiracy?

Quite creative that.

Wild allegations are just that…wild allegations…reproducing them with an air of gravity doesn’t make them any better.

The third site is the one I am least sure about.

I know something isn’t right…. but what?

It’s a hugely informative site, one of those that really opened up a world of knowledge to me. But it’s also crass, even pornographic, in its language and imagery.

And it mixes truth-telling and supposed anti-Zionist rhetoric with anti-Christian propaganda that serves no one but the Sanhedrin.

Is the site Indian intelligence or is it Mossad/Raw disinformation or CIA or something else? No idea.

It also gets an entry in my Spy versus Spy ledger.

Disinformation site three is –

Ajit Vadakayil

That one really makes me sad. I had such high hopes for the captain.


Too bad for all true believers out there.

Dieudonne Mocks Holocaust Inc., Not Holocaust

In this interview on Iranian TV, Dieudonne describes how he and his wife and children have been physically assaulted by Zionists for his satire.

None of that harassment has been reported widely. While the world has been forced to listen to endless nonsense about the faux-martyrdoms of operatives like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, someone who really gets beaten up for his political views gets no sympathy.

The comedian also explains why breaking the  taboo against criticizing Zionism is indispensable to releasing the West from the psychic prison in which it lives.

He explains the difference between mocking the political and commercial manipulation of the Holocaust (which he admits to doing)

and mocking the Holocaust itself (which he denies doing).

He points out that in France, in recent  years, the Crucifixion has been forcibly and intentionally displaced by the Holocaust as a symbol deserving public veneration.

[See my post on Pope Francis and the Marc Chagall painting of Christ.]

Indeed, the increasing proliferation of laws supporting the inviolability of Holocaust history in France and elsewhere coincides with the increasing denigration and displacement of Christian symbols.

That displacement is nothing less than cultural imperialism.

Is one human race to replace divinity itself in the public consciousness of another?

If so, by whose will? At whose expense?

In another post I will explain why I still wonder if Dieudonne is yet another face of controlled opposition, but, in regard to the question of whether he is guilty of incitement, the answer is no.

One last point. He was convicted not of “inciting violence,” which is at least a crime, even if  he didn’t commit it.

No, he was charged with something quite different, nebulous, and trumped up “inciting hate.”

Quite apart from the astounding hypocrisy of  such a statement from the West – always boiling over with barbaric ‘two-minute-hates’ (here and here  for instance) directed at this or that unfortunate people who get in the way of its imperial ambitions –  what does inciting hate even mean?

Really, what does it mean?

 

 

 

 

Crypto-J***** “White Emir” Behind Paris Attack

I blogged earlier about the “white emir” – Olivier Corel – a French citizen of Syrian descent, who is now suspected of having radicalized the chief suspect in the Paris attacks of November 13, 2015.

This wouldn’t be the first time.

Corel is said to have been behind an attack in 2012 that killed 7 people.

Some reports claim that the name “white emir” was given to him because of his fully white beard. But his pictures show him with a two-toned beard.

More plausible are other reports that claim that it was his blonde coloring that earned him the name.

Who is this blonde “white” radical imam from Syria who seems to be behind terror imputed to Muslim radicals?

He turns out to have  J***** roots [scroll down].

But, first, a little research produces his real name, which is Abdel Ilat Al-Dandachi.

Second: he has been let off, despite his connection to two attacks.

Under France’s heightened emergency laws, a 6-month suspended jail sentence has been given to him over the technicality of failing to register a weapon, so that the jail-term will come into effect only in the event he does anything wrong in the next two years.

Third: He is of Syrian (in some accounts, Syro-Lebanese) descent.

Corel is a Syrian (born in 1947) who entered France in 1973 to study pharmacy, gave that up and later founded the Islamic community of Artigat, in the village of the same name.

THE WHITE EMIR’S J***** ROOTS

But the most fascinating part of his history is not to be found in any report, English or French, that I read.

Wikipedia France says that the Dandachis are Arabs of the purest sort claiming to descend through Joktan in the Bible, from Eber, Shem, and Noah.

That would make them not only Semites, but actually Hebrews (of Eber).

The origin of the word Dandachi, in one version, comes from the Turkish Din Dasli [Lila: Din means religion] or protector of religion, the role they played in  the 17th century, when the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed the IV, gave them the title of Aga and the guardianship of pilgrims going to Mecca in exchange for territory running from Tripoli to Homs and including the famous Crusader fort, Krak des Chevaliers, near the border with Lebanon.

Interestingly, the fort was a strong-hold of the Syrian rebels until last year, when Syrian government troops retook it.

The name of the commander of the Islamicist group defending the Krak des Chevaliers was Abu Suleiman Dandashi, a Lebanese national.

 Dandachi shows up again as the name of a  Syrian “dissident” (Aboud Dandachi),

who is a vocal mouth-piece for the Zionist “big lie” that “terror” is the natural outgrowth of Islam, rather than fostered and created by the West using Islam as the front. The mouth-piece exists to let Europe know via a “good pro-Western Muslim” that “anti-Semitism” is the cause of  “terror.”

The name Dandachi is listed by a genealogical website (usgwarchives.net) as originally of J***** origin.  The name, the site claims, derives from the Israelite tribe of Dan in Canaan. Related are the names Dandy and Dandys in Europe. The same name appears under the Ottomans as Dandyshly/Dandishly/Dandashly and other variants, whle in France it is Dandachi or Dandash and in America, Dandashi.

It is interesting that Corel, the Syrian, has the American variant of the name.

The site also contained an extended description of the family’s history as cryptos in the Ottoman empire and as conversos, humanists and masons, as needed, ultimately loyal only to the J***** ethno-state.

I will refer you directly to the site itself, since the copyright notice prevents me excerpting it here.

French Intelligence Protecting “Jihadists”

World Socialist Web:

Already before the Times report, numerous media outlets had revealed that most Islamists involved in the November 13 attack were known to security forces. Since the Paris attacks, a growing number of experts on French Islamism have expressed amazement that such figures were allowed to operate in France and prepare the attacks.

When Abaaoud was identified as a possible orchestrator of the attack, David Thomson, a journalist specializing in jihad in France and author of French Jihadists, wrote: “if this report is substantiated, what would be involved would be far more than astonishment at a meltdown of the security services.”

Thomson explained, “One must understand who this man is. He is the public face of the French-speaking jihadi world. His face was displayed for several days last year round-the-clock on all France’s major news channels. In 2013 and 2014, on his own Facebook page, under his true identity, he posted videos of himself on the Syrian front, grenade launcher in hand, calling for people to join him.”

Abaaoud’s ability to travel in Europe and plan and obtain supplies for a major terrorist attack can only be explained by the close ties between Islamist terrorist circles and French intelligence, who uses them to go fight in the imperialist war for regime change in Syria. Under these conditions, the Paris attackers were able to exploit what amounted to official protection for their operations from sections of the French state.”

What this means is that using “terrorism” as a pretext to expand state surveillance is thoroughly bogus.

The government did not act on information it already had. It did not use the powers it already has. It ignored the extensive information it had about the attackers.

That is not mere incompetence. That is certainly culpable negligence.

Very plausibly, it is malicious intent on the part of the intelligence agencies, to fuel French participation in Syria.

“White Emir” Behind Paris Attacks?

(Credit: AFP)

Reuters reports  that the man who claimed the Paris attacks for ISIS, Omar Clain, was radicalized  in the early 2000’s in the French city of Toulouse by a man known as the “white emir”.

At Toulouse, Clain came into contact with a militant recruitment cell, the “Artigat cell,” which was mentored by a radical Salafist imam, Olivier Corel, known locally as the “white emir.”

Police believe that the “white emir” also radicalized the gunman Mohamed Merah, who killed 12 people, many Jewish, in 2012.

 

Comedian Jailed For Anti-Semitic Jokes

Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, a French comedian who’s made public jokes about the Holocaust has been sentenced to jail by a Belgian court.

One of his jokes was that he would “wipe his a**” with the Israeli flag.

Do you remember the much-lamented white (Jewish) jokers going by the name Charlie Hebdo?

Do you remember their vicious jokes against Muslims and Christians? Did they go to jail for them?

Do you notice all the websites all over the world spewing demonstrable false-hoods about non-white people in the middle-east and third world and do you notice that they are mainstream and completely respectable and do you see any jail-time for any of the writers?

In fact, those sites are the outlets for policy-makers in the West.

The same policy-makers who make sure that comedians in Europe are prosecuted for sticking up for the wrong class of people.

Behind #BlackLivesMatter, REVCOM dot US

From  AllNewsPipeline.com:

“According to Wikipedia, the media refers to the Black Lives Matter movement as “a new civil rights movement,” but a look into an organization behind the BLM shows a comprehensive plan by another group who are using the BLM protestors as nothing more than patsies to create a “profound and acute crisis in society,”  with the “goal of revolution and ultimately communism ,” as their endgame plan.

In other words…. to start a civil war.

The organization in question is seen clearly on a Black Lives matter sign held by protesters during a march against the New York City grand jury decision to not indict in the death of Eric Garner, in Oakland, California December 3, 2014, shown below:

BLMREVCOM.jpg

REVCOM.US

The revcom.us website header says “Welcome to the REVOLUTION – The Voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.” The quotes above speaking to creating a crisis in society with the ultimate goal being revolution comes directly from their “New Communist Manifesto,” which is a 100+ page PDF document found here. ….”

….In their preamble they clearly state the need “to defeat and dismantle the forces of the old, oppressive order, and establish the new socialist state,” further stating the ” process and goal which, fundamentally and in the final analysis, can only be achieved on a global scale, with the advance to communism throughout the world”.

Briefly, #BlackLivesMatter, like #OccupyWallStreet and the Million Mask March, is an advertising campaign to sell race-wars and revolution, brought to you from the same people who brought you Pussy Riot, Anonymous, “V” for Vendetta, Wikileaks, #Kony2012 and #JeSuisCharlie…..

Christ-Hating Zios & Shabbos Goyim

From Mask of Zion:

So when the ostensibly “Christian” British state, known and hated the world over for its “Christian” missionary activities that cloaked so many if not all of its genocidal invasions, chucks its “Christian” identity to the wayside and castigates a man like Dieudonné, who identifies himself as an “Islamic-Christian (23)”, while welcoming filth-peddlers and desecrationists like Sarah Silverman and Larry David, it is betraying an upsetting truth that many Brits may not be able to accept: Their country is not the great power that they’ve been brainwashed into believing it is since birth. Their country is a subcontractor for a far more powerful, far more sinister force. Their country is not Christian. Their country has no love or respect for Jesus Christ The Messiah. Their country is not sovereign. Their country is on its knees, its forehead at the feet of the Rothschilds and other “chosenite” overlords. Their country is subservient to Jewish supremacy.

As is America. The US and UK regimes are empires and imperialists only in name, for they do not serve their own interests but the interests of Organized Jewry, which sends its Christ-hating spokespersons into the public eye to bash and humiliate what they allegedly hold most dear while they remain deafeningly silent. But when opponents of Zionist-subverted Western policy criticize the parasitic, plutocratic elite running the West into the ground, they are not greeted with the same silence. They are not even greeted with accusations of “anti-Westernism”. No, they are bombarded with the gobbledegook of “anti-Semitism”. Pounded with the sheer irrationalness of “Jew-hatred”. Browbeaten for spitting on the “memory” of the “Holocaust”. This is not just an exercise in hypocrisy alone. Hypocrisy represents the mere obviousness of the matter. This is proof, the kind comprised of unbreakable stone embedded in unshakeable ground, that imperialism, while a terribly real threat that must be combated and stopped, is only vice president in the hegemonic power structure; its agents are “shabbos goyim” and its boss is Zionism. “
