Who, Why, How

Who, why, how.

I keep rotating the questions.

Someone has been hacking my private mail since 2007. It was the company monitoring me. I saw emails deleted. They even sent me a Trojan. This was not just work mail, but personal.

Later, it escalated into sending people my way to snoop or set me up. Job replies would be deleted or never reach. Book proposals, inquiries, all waylaid.

I would shut down my email and start another…and I would be safe for a few months and then it would start all over. Personal letters, phone calls, messages and always the listening.

I pulled out the land lines after things I discussed showed up in different articles all in the same incestuous web of newsletters. Who was feeding that stuff to them? Was it intelligence? Or was it some contractor?  Was the boss involved, and which boss?

Every quiet moment alone, only I wasn’t alone. Every family joke, that my enemies now knew.

 

 

But why?  And why this latest sabotage of my domain?

Who else was in on it with them? Someone at the hosting company. Yes, probably. 

American censorship, free market style. The market has spoken. Only not the market, but criminals.

White-collar criminals. The ones who never make the headlines with those Mexican rapists conjured by the crook-in-chief. The Mossad stooge.

Should I connect the dots from spammers to hackers to domain squatters and domain sabotage? I think so.

And why? Well, first, why not? If you can inflict damage with impunity on an enemy…and apparently I am an enemy for having been a victim/ target…why not.

But something else is ticking inside those malevolent heads.

What is it, fellows?

 

 

Back to Blogging

Apologies for the site having been down so long. First, there was a long spell of bot attacks that I could never tackle in time.

Then, there were a bunch of technical glitches. I’m up now, but for how long I can’t say. I’ll take it as it comes.

My latest preoccupation is the growing menace of biometric identification, the worst specimen of which is India’s monstrous Aadhaar card.

Aadhaar, as duly noted on this blog, has the same meaning as Al Qaeda, that is, ‘the base’..which is another word for a ‘the foundation’. But it is also a pun on a more obviously ominous word – ‘data-base.’

A data-base of human beings, that is.

These sorts of cogitations will be dismissed in the major media as conspiracy theory.

But it is nothing of the sort, to anyone who follows the day-to-day encroachment of the state on the remaining rags of privacy.

Aadhaar is exceptional in that it includes a person’s name, his/her parents’ names, a photograph, all ten finger-prints, iris scans, and a signature, all in one easily duplicated piece of paper.

Already, despite Supreme Court pronouncements to the contrary, the Indian government has demanded it for public welfare schemes, for government scholarships, for new bank accounts, for government pensions, for gas subsidies, for cell phone accounts, and now, perhaps,  for income-tax filings.

Already, millions of people with Aadhaar have had all their personal and financial details leaked, for weeks and months at a time, on multiple government websites.

The implications are horrendous, by any measure. The helpless citizen is now trapped between the surveillance state and the criminal mafias, pinned down like prey, cowering between the gimlet-eyed eagle of global government overhead and the insidious snake of international crime underfoot.

Trump Exposes The State For What It Is

Karen Kwiatkowsky at LRC  sums up my own feelings about Trump, his fans, and his critics:

If Donald Trump turns out to be power-hungry, corrupt, and stupid, if he becomes an icon of an arrogant emperor, it would simply be the first time in recent decades that we the people widely recognized those characteristics in a president.  This – what we are watching today – is how an all-consuming, and all involving state behaves, in its natural environment.

The upset and sadness regarding the new administration by a whole sector of Americans (and their mainstream media translators) is the result of their own ignorance of how the government of the size and scope of the US government actually works.  Fascism seems to be the word of the day – but our government is a long established crony capitalist state, one able, willing and eager to take by hook, by crook and by force, whatever it wants from any citizen of non-citizen alike.  This is old news.

Those who love the glory of the state, adore its power and enjoy its parental aura, have built and supported the state we have.  Donald Trump is the perfect man to lead it.

I certainly hope that he might also be the perfect president to destroy it.

Either way, I see nothing worth complaining about.  Our energies should be spent on living freely, prospering and helping others to do so.  We should pay attention to the teeth-gnashing of the ruling, chattering and echo-chamber classes only so far as it informs us on potential vulnerabilities of the state that we may use practically, and as teachable moments.”

Trump Refugee Cap Is Not “Muslim Ban”

As usual, the mainstream media around the globe are hysterically misrepresenting the facts about the Trump restrictions on immigration. This is no blanket ban on Muslims, as a careful reading of the text shows.

From the Powerline blog:

David French does a good job of separating the facts from the hysteria. For the hysteria, French cites the usual suspects: Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, the Huffington Post, etc.

For the facts, and for perspective, French begins with this:

[T]he order temporarily halts refugee admissions for 120 days to improve the vetting process, then caps refugee admissions at 50,000 per year. Outrageous, right? Not so fast.

Before 2016, when Obama dramatically ramped up refugee admissions, Trump’s 50,000 stands roughly in between a typical year of refugee admissions in George W. Bush’s two terms and a typical year in Obama’s two terms. . . .In 2002, the United States admitted only 27,131 refugees. It admitted fewer than 50,000 in 2003, 2006, and 2007. As for President Obama, he was slightly more generous than President Bush, but his refugee cap from 2013 to 2015 was a mere 70,000, and in 2011 and 2012 he admitted barely more than 50,000 refugees himself.

The bottom line is that Trump is improving security screening and intends to admit refugees at close to the average rate of the 15 years before Obama’s dramatic expansion in 2016. Obama’s expansion was a departure from recent norms, not Trump’s contraction.

About the 90-day ban on people entering the U.S. from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen, French has this to say:

[T]hese are countries either torn apart by jihadist violence or under the control of hostile, jihadist governments. The ban is in place while the Department of Homeland Security determines the information needed from any country to adjudicate any visa, admission, or other benefit under the INA (adjudications) in order to determine that the individual seeking the benefit is who the individual claims to be and is not a security or public-safety threat. It could, however, be extended or expanded depending on whether countries are capable of providing the requested information.

The ban, however, contains an important exception: Secretaries of State and Homeland Security may, on a case-by-case basis, and when in the national interest, issue visas or other immigration benefits to nationals of countries for which visas and benefits are otherwise blocked. In other words, the secretaries can make exceptions — a provision that would, one hopes, fully allow interpreters and other proven allies to enter the U.S. during the 90-day period.

To the extent this ban applies to new immigrant and non-immigrant entry, this temporary halt (with exceptions) is wise. We know that terrorists are trying to infiltrate the ranks of refugees and other visitors. We know that immigrants from Somalia, for example, have launched jihadist attacks here at home and have sought to leave the U.S. to join ISIS.

Indeed, given the. . .recent track record of completed and attempted terror attacks by Muslim immigrants, it’s clear that our current approach is inadequate to control the threat. Unless we want to simply accept Muslim immigrant terror as a fact of American life, a short-term ban on entry from problematic countries combined with a systematic review of our security procedures is both reasonable and prudent.

French opposes application of the ban to green-card holders because they have already gone through round after round of vetting. He notes, however, that Trump’s order, by its terms, doesn’t apply to them. Thus, the administration should intervene to stop the misapplication of its order to green-card holders. If it doesn’t, “it should indeed be condemned,” French says.

What about the indefinite hold on admitting Syrian refugees? French finds this to be fairly inconsequential — a return, largely, to the Obama administration’s practices from 2011 to 2014:

For all the Democrats’ wailing and gnashing of teeth, until 2016 the Obama administration had already largely slammed the door on Syrian-refugee admissions. The Syrian Civil War touched off in 2011. Here are the Syrian-refugee admissions to the U.S. until Obama decided to admit more than 13,000 in 2016:Fiscal Year 2011: 29Fiscal Year 2012: 31Fiscal Year 2013: 36Fiscal Year 2014: 105Fiscal Year 2015: 1,682.

To recap: While the Syrian Civil War was raging, ISIS was rising, and refugees were swamping Syria’s neighbors and surging into Europe, the Obama administration let in less than a trickle of refugees. Only in the closing days of his administration did President Obama reverse course — in numbers insufficient to make a dent in the overall crisis, by the way — and now the Democrats have the audacity to tweet out pictures of bleeding Syrian children?

It’s particularly gross to see this display when the Obama administration’s deliberate decision to leave a yawning power vacuum — in part through its Iraq withdrawal and in part through its dithering throughout the Syrian Civil War — exacerbated the refugee crisis in the first place. There was a genocide on Obama’s watch, and his tiny trickle of Syrian refugees hardly makes up for the grotesque negligence of abandoning Iraq and his years-long mishandling of the emerging Syrian crisis.

When we know our enemy is seeking to strike America and its allies through the refugee population, when we know they’ve succeeded in Europe, and when the administration has doubts about our ability to adequately vet the refugees we admit into this nation, a pause is again not just prudent but arguably necessary.

What about Trump’s directive to prioritize refugee claims made by individuals on the basis of religious-based persecution, provided that the religion of the individual is a minority religion in the individual’s country of nationality? French puts this directive in perspective by noting the extent to which persecuted non-Muslims almost never seemed to benefit from Obama’s refugee policy:

[When] Obama dramatically expanded Syrian refugee admissions in 2016, few Christians made the cut:The Obama administration has resettled 13,210 Syrian refugees into the United States since the beginning of 2016 — an increase of 675 percent over the same 10-month period in 2015.Of those, 13,100 (99.1 percent) are Muslims — 12,966 Sunnis, 24 Shi’a, and 110 other Muslims — and 77 (0.5 percent) are Christians. Another 24 (0.18 percent) are Yazidis.

As a point of reference, in 2015 Christians represented roughly 10 percent of Syria’s population. Perhaps there’s an innocent explanation for the disparity. Perhaps not.

In any event, federal asylum and refugee law already has a built-in religious test. The term refugee means “(A) any person who is outside any country of such person’s nationality . . . and who is unable or unwilling to return to . . . that country because of persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution on account of . . . religion [among other things] . . .” Thus, as French says:

Religious considerations are by law part of refugee policy. And it is entirely reasonable to give preference (though not exclusivity) to members of minority religions.

Finally, French emphasizes that “you can read the entire executive order from start to finish, reread it, then read it again, and you will not find a Muslim ban.” He concludes:

Now is the time to take a fresh look at our border-control and immigration policies. Trump’s order isn’t a betrayal of American values. Applied correctly and competently, it can represent a promising fresh start and a prelude to new policies that protect our nation while still maintaining American compassion and preserving American friendships.”

 

Will The Real Rape Culture Please Stand Up?

 

A horrendous allegation of gang rape at Baylor University.

Nothing has been proved yet, and what with all the false rape charges, I would like to find out what really happened before going there.

Still, on the face of it, I find it credible.

Is this a contradiction of my previous blog post about false rape charges?

No. Arguing that feminist laws are exacerbating false-rape charges in India in no way makes me unable to see real rape when (and if) it occurs.

There is NO rape culture in the US if you are talking about the average bloke and the average family.

On the contrary, there is a culture of misandry.

But in certain specialized settings, there is a rape culture.

One setting is the military – an outgrowth of the state.

The second is also an outgrowth of the state – the billion-dollar sports industry, with its endless stroking of athletic narcissism, its addiction to steroids, and its entitlement culture off the field.

The third locus of genuine rape culture is in certain venues in colleges, in bars and voluntary associations, where political correctness comes to an end and atavistic urges fueled by drugs, alcohol, and often violent porn, take over as a back-lash.

Here too, the state can be blamed. It is only the existence of enormous subsidies from the state that make this kind of permissive partying life-style possible.

The other two sites of genuine rape-culture are the prisons (also an outgrowth of the state) and criminal gangs on the street (fed by prison culture).

None of that has anything to do with traditional patriarchy.

Rather,  the causes lie with intoxicants, the break-down of community standards, and the inculcation of the military ideal of a “killing machine” into even civilians, via a mindless sports culture, through criminal gangs, and through a prison-culture that is widely imitated by young people.

The state is central to the culture that promotes rape. The traditional patriarchal family is not.

 

Dangers Of Vaccines Increase In Developing Countries

From Stop Mandatory Vaccinations:

“Polio
Everyone usually gets very concerned about polio and use it as a main reason why vaccinations are so important. People always say to me, “Well, what about polio?”

The polio truth was one of the hardest ones for me to wrap my head around. The truth about polio (or what we have all been told is polio) is that during the 1950s many similar diseases were misdiagnosed as polio, such as Guillain-Barré syndrome, hand foot, and mouth disease, transverse myelitis, undiagnosed congenital syphilis, ECHO, and Arsenic and DDT poisoning. The polio virus is a gut virus that has been around for centuries and had only began to show paralyzing effects on people in the 19 the century. Why? Because polio was really a reaction to the pesticides DDT and arsenic that were sprayed on literally everything at that time, including food. There was also a huge disruption to the immune system by the introduction of toxic and processed foods. These two factors together disrupted the gut and immune system balance which turned a once benign gut virus into a terrible disease. When DDT use was stopped, polio mysteriously dropped as well, proving that once again this vaccine did not save us. You can see the graph here. The CDC also reclassified the definition of polio multiple times, essentially reclassifying it out of existence.

The polio we see now in 3rd world countries is vaccine induced polio virus. Yes, you heard me right, vaccine induced polio. In the US the oral polio vaccine was dropped because it was causing polio, however it is still used in developing countries. How criminal is that?

This vaccination issue is a huge problem in India and Africa where the vaccine trials are causing enormous numbers of children to become paralyzed from the vaccine. In India over 53,000 cases of vaccine induced paralysis have occurred! The CDC even says that cases of polio are extremely rare in the US. However, between 1980-1994 there were 124 cases of vaccine-induced polio. Of course the government and CDC has been brilliant about covering all this up, but if you read the history of polio the picture becomes clear: vaccines did not save us from polio and in fact, caused massive harm.

Rotavirus
What is rotavirus anyway? Most people I speak with have no idea what this disease even is.

Rotavirus is the most common cause of severe diarrhea among children worldwide. There are many different strains of rotavirus that can infect humans or animals, including monkeys, cows and sheep. There are five main strains that cause more than 90 percent of human rotavirus infections in developed countries, such as the US, but rotavirus strains are more diverse in developing countries. By the time a child is 5 years old they have been suspected to have been infected with rotavirus at least once. Each time a child gets infected his or her immunity is boosted and subsequent infections are less severe.

Problems with rotavirus occur when there is severe dehydration. Again this is more serious in developing nations where people may not have access to clean, safe water, or proper care. According to the CDC, Rotavirus infections rarely cause other complications and for a well managed child the prognosis is excellent. So if a child’s infection is well managed and the prognosis is excellent then why the heck do we need a vaccine when this vaccine is literally killing children throughout the world? Two babies died and 29 were hospitalized after receiving the Rotavirus vaccine in Mexico. Isn’t the death of one baby, one death too many? Why is this vaccine still on the childhood immunization schedule in the US? Where is the justice for these children?

This vaccine just happens to be co-created by Dr. Paul Offit who is the head of the Vaccine Information Center and has direct financial ties to the sale of this product. He is quoted as saying that a child would be safe receiving 10,000 vaccines at once! Sorry Mr. Offit, but I don’t believe you, and I will take my chances with the diarrhea. Maybe you should offer your own child as a guinea pig for this experiment you propose.”

Note Ban Targets Informal Finance, Small Biz, Small Farmers

NOTE BAN FALL-OUT:

(In Progress)

1.  Silk-weaving:

(Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, Dec. 24, 2016)

50% drop in demand and in production among bigger weavers. Sale of previous inventory at much lower prices. Smaller weavers even worse hit. Half of the 30,000 daily wage workers,  or 15,000 people, put out of work. No money to pay workers or suppliers.

2. Timber:

(Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarkhand, Punjab, Kashmir, Jan 12, 2017)

At least 500,000 workers out of work. Total loss to the industry of at least Rs. 180 crores or Rs. 18,00,000,000 (1.8 billion).

The entire timber industry shut down within one week of demonetization. The losses are from the 30-day shut down.

3. Chit funds:

(December 28, 2016)

55% of the chit fund industry’s cash flow has been lost. In urban areas the monthly flow is Rs. 3-5 crores (300-500,000) Rural chit funds have been hit even worse, because of smaller cash flows. Chit funds are a unique savings and borrowing for lower and middle-income families, but they cannot tap in bank loans like other non-bank financial institutions to tide over the crisis.

Indeed, the entire informal financial sector (chit funds, nidhis, hundis) – some 26% of GDP and 40% of formal bank lending –  has been permanently damaged.

Informal finance is one of the two primary targets of DeMo, fronted by Modi, but pushed by the globalist financial cabal.

4.  Ceramics:

(Surat, Gujarat, December 14, 2016)

25% of ceramic units in Morbi, hub of Gujarat’s  ceramics industry shut down (responsible for 4,200 crores exports).  Another article dated December 5 (see below) says 60% of the ceramics business was likely to be shuttered. 200 out of 650 large ceramics factories in Surat were closed as of November 26th. Business down from 65-70 crores/day to 25. Over 2000 auxiliary industries affected.

5. Diamonds:

(December 5, 2016)

The Surat (Gujarat) diamond industry, worth 95,000 crores (a crore is Rs. 10 million) has seen a decline of 25%.  The business traditionally relied on the angadia cash payments  (a local hawala system using couriers). This was banned in 2002 but still accounts for 30% of the business. It has ground to a halt.  200 factories shut down in the first week of December.

6 Farming:

(Maharashtra, Dec. 16, 2016)

Farm auctions could not be held for 10 days because there was no cash, so red onions that could not be stored sold at half price, putting many marginal small farmers out of business permanently. The same situation plays out in elsewhere in the country.

In Delhi, by Nov. 11, perishable horticultural produce has been badly hit. Onion and potato prices have halved.Rabi or winter crop sowing in farming areas across the country have been affected because of lack of money to buy inputs.

7. Fish markets

(Bengal, November 13, 2016)

Malancha the gigantic fish market 100 km south of Kolkata is 40-50% dry. The largest of some 12 mega fish markets in south Bengal, it normally sells 15000 kg of fish every day. Azibor Rehman, the owner of the biggest fish depot there, says it is the biggest depression he has seen in 50 years. Small farmers who keep notes at home and have no bank accounts are being fleeced by 20% rates to change their notes.

In Goa, fish vendors throw away fish and lose business, as customers prefer to pay for fish with cash.

8. Tourism:

(Goa, Dec. 23, 2016)

90% of tourists at Anjuna have left. Restaurants have shut down and workers are out of jobs. Tourism in India employs 50 million people, 10% of the Indian work-force (more than the population of Colombo) and they are all affected by the note ban. Foreigners can only exchange 2.5% ( Rs. 5000) of what they could before the ban, which was about Rs. 200,000/week or $3000.

9.  Bicycle manufacturing

(Ludhiana, Punjab, November 26, 2016)

Production is down by 50%, there are no fresh orders, and parts cannot be ordered. Ludhiana is the hub of India’s bicycle manufacturing industry. It produces 1.4 crore bicycles at a value of 7000 crores or Rs. 70,000,000000 or $70 billion. 1/3 of migrant workers in the industry have lost their job and gone home to Bihar and Orissa. The bicycle ancillary industry, which employs 300,000 people, have reduced hours by a third.

10.  Small and medium enterprises

(Delhi, Dec. 11, 2016)

A death knell for India’s small and medium enterprises, says the chief executive of Ambit Capital.  Indian  regulations deliberately favor small and medium enterprises over big businesses.  The cash crunch delivered a death blow to them, leaving the market open for big business. Entering the “white” world, would force these businesses to pay taxes, legal minimal wage, and regulatory fees, making their margins too small for them to continue. 30 million Indians work in manufacturing, with 10 million working as self-employed,  with no hired hands outside the family. Those with hired labor on average have 7 or fewer employees.

Here were see another primary target of the globalists’ plan for India.

 

 

Modi Retracts DeMo Jail Penalty Day After Proclaiming It

Any reputation for efficient management that Modi might have acquired has been permanently destroyed by the demonetization fiasco, which whiplashes between tragedy and farce.

Economic Times:

A day after approving an ordinance regarding punishment for those holding old notes in possession, government officials on Thursday clarified that keeping demonetised notes will not land you in jail, according to a PTI report. It also said that the minimum fine for holding old notes beyond March 31 will be Rs 10,000. “
[Lila: Down from 50,000 or 5x the value of the illegal notes.]

India Cash Lock-Down To Last Into Late 2017

How is this not economic warfare?

Nilakantha Rath at Livemint:

My latest informal information about the capacity of the four presses is: The two government presses together can print 18 million pieces a day and the two RBI presses can print 43-45 million pieces a day. Let us assume their capacity at 44 million pieces a day. This is significantly smaller than the 100 million pieces per day capacity assumed by former Union finance minister P. Chidambaram. I stick to my estimate.

Let us assume that the printing of the new Rs2,000 notes started in the two RBI presses in Mysuru and Salboni in early September. These two presses together can print 44 million pieces a day. So, if they were to print these every day, except Sundays, then a total of 3.43 billion Rs2,000 notes can be printed in 78 working days, which is 13 working weeks, or three months, from the beginning of September—that is, early December.

According to some reports, the design of the new Rs500 note arrived at the Nashik printing press in the beginning of November and printing started soon after. However, within three weeks, RBI found defects in the new note. So, the printing of the new Rs500 notes was shifted to the RBI press in Mysuru. Therefore, there was only one RBI press printing the Rs2,000 note, in Salboni, from around 21 November.

From this day, only one press would have been printing the total of 800 million notes. That would require 10 more days. So, by around 10 December all new Rs2,000 notes, valued at Rs6.86 trillion, should have been printed. And before the end of December they should be available in the market.

But as of today, the total value of new notes put into circulation is said to be just above Rs5 trillion. This implies that, apart from the lag involved in putting out the newly printed notes in the market, printing has been slower than assumed above.

Now let us turn to the new Rs500 notes. Exactly 17.17 billion pieces of these new notes have to be printed. Assuming that the printing of these notes started in the two government presses and the one RBI press from 21 November, the amount printed by 10 December (when the fourth press would also take up this work) should have been 680 million notes (at 40 million per day x 17 working days). From 11 December, printing of the new Rs500 notes could start in all the four presses. The work of printing the remaining 16.49 billion notes should take 266 working days, that is, 45 weeks, which is seven weeks short of a year. So this work will only be over by the first week of December 2017.

There was hope that a significant part of the old notes would not come back to RBI through banks. But the latest data on the return of old notes to banks appears to belie that expectation.

In light of the slower-than-expected flow of the Rs2,000 notes, which should all have been in the market by now or in a few more days, there is reason to doubt the speed of printing assumed in this calculation. We have not taken into account the possibility of breakdown of the old presses in Nashik and Dewas, holidays other than Sundays, and other delay-causing circumstances. There is also the need to print Rs100 notes and even notes of lower denomination.

Even by the end of May 2017, only about half the number of Rs500 notes will have been printed. This means, only a little over Rs9 trillion worth of new notes, in place of the more than Rs15.44 trillion in old notes, will be available in the market. This is about 59% of the total value of high denomination notes taken out of circulation. That surely does not imply any great easing in the cash availability situation by the end of May 2017.

The shortage of currency has caused a loss of income, employment and the ability to spend from one’s income/savings for a wide section of the population. In Mathura and Surat, the country’s two major textile centres, nearly half the powerlooms are closed and many workers have reportedly gone back to their villages. The same is reportedly the case with leather units. Indeed, this is so for a wide range of small industrial units across the country.

There is a shortage of cash with farmers at the beginning of the rabi, or winter crop season. The end of the kharif (summer crop) season has found traders unable to buy different farm products from farmers due to a shortage of cash. And the farmers, with little income in hand, are unable to repay loans. The banks are unable to help. Small traders are struggling to find ways of meeting customer needs without cash. It is difficult to assess the all-round distress in employment and income as well as consumption.

Can digital transactions help? According to the RBI, there were 26.3 million credit cards and 712.4 million debit cards in the country by the end of August this year. This is a sizeable number. But, apart from cards held by offices and shops, there are people with multiple bank accounts who have more than one such card each. Many members of one family would also be having such cards.

But the most important thing is that many cardholders use the cards to withdraw cash from their bank accounts. Think of the long queues at ATMs after 1 December and one will realize the main purpose for which most people use their cards. For the bulk of the non-cardholder population and even for those with cards, cash is very important.

All this will get reflected in a lower gross domestic product (GDP) at the end of this financial year. That situation is not likely to become normal before the middle of the next financial year. The hope of a substantial part of the old currency not returning to banks has been belied. So, no new currency can be borrowed from the RBI by the government in its place. The indirect taxes of the states and the centre are already showing signs of decline. The total budgetary situation does not appear rosy at all.

A cool consideration of the above facts will show us clearly why former prime minister Manmohan Singh called this “strike” “monumental mismanagement”. Whom shall we blame but ourselves!”

Lila: Who is “ourselves”? The hapless population which had nothing to do with it?

The RBI staff, who apparently were shut out of the decision?

The government, which was informed after the fact?

Or was it Modi, a small group of conspirators and the global cabal that bribed and backed those conspirators to implement a black-operation equal to 9-11 that has brought financial and digital dictatorship to India.

Bill Gates Reaps Mega Profits From Cashless India

From Wolfstreet.com:

Another person who has come out strongly in favor of the government’s actions, for very different reasons, is the world’s richest (official) billionaire, Bill Gates, who just happened to be in India on business a few days after the government’s decree.

“The world as a whole will go cashless, but predicting for any country when that will happen is very hard,” he told the Indian prime minister. In Gates’ opinion, India’s latest move should put it at the forefront of the fintech revolution: “All of the pieces are coming together,” he said. “I think in the next several years India will become the most digitized economy, not just by size but by percentage as well.”

Gates has good reason to be excited at such a prospect. After all, both, Microsoft and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation stand to benefit enormously from a more digitized Indian economy. As the Indian financial daily Business Standard notes, Gates wants to partner with the Indian government on a whole raft of major initiatives, including cyber crime, digital health, digital literacy, e-agriculture and, of course, e-payments.

During his stay in India, Gates had a meeting with the government’s Minister of Information Technology, Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad to discuss those collaborative opportunities. Industry experts say that Microsoft is already providing back-end support to a number of payment banks in India, which are set to launch in the next few months. According to Business Standard, the Ministry has requested the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to be part of the digitizing process.

“It’s a very exciting time in India and some of these digital platform opportunities are really quite amazing,” Gates gushed after the meeting. “The government has invested manpower and the payments banks and payment infrastructure. It is now a case of building the applications on top of those. We need to work on health issues, health applications. Our Foundation is committed to working on those areas – our relationship with this Ministry will be very critical for us,” Gates said.

That the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation should emerge as an important advocate and beneficiary of India’s demonetization drive should come as little surprise. The foundation has carved out an important role for itself in India since launching operations there in the early 2000s. It is also one of the most vocal proponents of a cashless economy. As Gates himself wrote in the Bill and Melinda Gates’ Foundation’s 2015 annual letter, poor communities in emerging economies — in particular Africa — represent a wonderful untapped potential for e-payments providers (emphasis added):

“(B)ecause there is strong demand for banking among the poor, and because the poor can in fact be a profitable customer base, entrepreneurs in developing countries are doing exciting work – some of which will “trickle up” to developed countries over time.”

In 2012, the BMG Foundation helped launch the Better Than Cash Alliance (BTCA), a UN-hosted partnership of governments, companies and international organizations whose stated mission is to “accelerate the transition from cash to digital payments globally through excellence in advocacy, knowledge and services to members.”

As we’ve pointed out before, in light of the inexorable advance of electronic payment systems, cash’s days may well be numbered. But there is a whole world of difference between a slow natural death and euthanasia. It is now clear that an extremely powerful, albeit loose, alliance of governments, banks, central banks, start-ups, large corporations, and NGOs are determined to pull the plug on cash — and their vehicle of choice is the BTCA.

The BTCA’s membership list reads like a Who’s Who of some of the world’s most influential corporations and institutions. They include Coca Coca, Visa and Mastercard, the Citi Foundation, the US Agency for International Development (USAID), the World Saving Banks Institute, which represents 7,000 retail and savings banks worldwide, the Ford Foundation, the Clinton Development Initiative, and a bewildering alphabet soup of UN organizations.

But as we warned in October, it’s BTCA’s member governments that matter the most, for it is they who will ultimately be shaping or even bending the laws and traditional practices of their respective lands to “accelerate the transition from cash to digital payments.”

BTCA currently has 18 member governments among its ranks, all of them representing emerging and developing economies, the most important testing grounds for cashless economics. They include India, which joined the organization on September 1, 2015, exactly a year after the launch of Modi’s flagship financial inclusion program Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojana, which saw 175 million new bank accounts created. In BTCA’s own words, its new partnership with India is an “extension of the Indian Government’s commitment to reduce cash in its economy.”

It’s a commitment that the government has now more than honored. And amidst all the chaos and impoverishment that its actions have unleashed, Bill Gates hopes to reap the benefits. By Don Quijones, Raging Bull-Shit.

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

Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee needs to revise her anti-demonetization slogan, Modi hatao, desh bachao (remove Modi and save the country) to Mor hatao, desh bachao
(remove Mor and save the country).

Behind professional patriot NaMo (Narendra Modi), we find career globalist NaMo (Nachiket Mor), Bill Gates’ emissary in India.

A RTI (Right to information) request uncovers that the demonetization decision was hurried through hours before the announcement by Modi by a small cabal on the RBI board, which normally should have 21 members.

In response to a right to information request, which Hindustan Times has sought, the RBI said the bank’s central board of directors made the recommendation at its meeting in New Delhi on November 8. Only eight of the 10 board members attended the crucial meet.

Apart from RBI chief Urjit Patel and economic affairs secretary Das, the meeting had RBI deputy governors R Gandhi and SS Mundra, Nachiket M Mor (Na Mo, by a bizarre coincidence) the country director for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Bharat Narotam Doshi, former chairman of Mahindra and Mahindra Financial Services Limited, former Gujarat chief secretary Sudhir Mankad, and financial services secretary Anjuly Chib Duggal.

The law provides for a 21-member board, including 14 independent members, but the central bank has been operating with less than half.

Between the RBI board meeting and Modi’s demonetisation announcement, the government just had a couple of hours to process the bank’s formal recommendation.

Prime Minister Modi had convened a meeting of his cabinet later in the day when they were told about the decision. The ministers — who had to leave their mobile phones outside — were told to stay back till his address was telecast.

It isn’t that the RBI or the government hadn’t been making preparations for the mammoth notes recall exercise. The bank had already printed Rs 4.94 lakh crore in Rs 2,000 notes by November 8.

But former RBI officials said this implies that the board’s approval was a formality.

The way the demonetisation decision was taken was “highly irregular”, said a former top RBI official, who didn’t wish to be named. He said he did not believe the government and RBI had taken “adequate steps” to minimise harassment of people.

Another said he was concerned at the large number of vacancies in the central board. Of the 14 independent directors, the board has just four.

“According to the RTI reply, only three of them were present (at the meeting). That is the quorum,” he said.”

So, a board that is supposed to have 21 members, operates with 10. Of the 21, 14 are supposed to be independent, but only 4 of the 10 are.  Of the ten,  only 8 attended the crucial meeting. Of the 4 independents, only 3 attended.

Why so many Gujarati hands?

And who knew that the Bill and Melissa Gates Foundation, represented by Nachiket Mor, and Mahindra and Mahindra (constantly promoted by Rush Limbaugh, by the way) have a say in RBI policy?

A little googling shows that the Gates Foundation is a big supporter of bringing all Indians into the banking system:

September 07, 2015

India’s banking sector is on the cusp of change. With the RBI’s recent licensing of 11 Payments Banks, the sector is poised for much-needed disruption that will bring millions of Indian households into the formal financial system for the first time.

The World Bank (2014) estimates that 47% of Indian adults are cut off from the formal financial system. This forces poor households to live their financial lives in the physical cash economy, which is both precarious and expensive. Imagine being able to save only in cash, jewelry, or livestock. Imagine having no option but to turn to a local moneylender in an emergency, or having to rely on informal couriers to send money to your family. Imagine having to go through a local official every time you want to access your social welfare transfer or pension payment. The cost and stress of conducting even simple financial transactions would be stifling.

The Prime Minister’s Jan Dhan Yojana financial inclusion program is closing this gap by encouraging banks to open accounts in poor and rural communities. Since August 2014, banks have opened 177 million accounts under PMJDY, making it the largest account opening drive in history. However, as with India’s previous mass account opening drives, banks are more focused on opening accounts than building a strong network of last-mile banking agents to service those accounts. A recent MicroSave (2015) survey of 2,682 banking agents found that India’s agents were the least trained and least profitable among the six countries surveyed. This is where Payments Banks are a game changer.”

Nichiket Mor is a Yale Greenberg World Fellow and a prominent voice for financial inclusion, which, on its face, sounds like a good thing.

Financial inclusion projects purport to save poor Indians from the grasp of local money-lenders and put to use idle stores of cash and gold.

As usual, empowering the poor is the cover:

Nachiket Mor is a renowned financial expert committed to financial inclusion and health care sector reform. In 2016, he was named director of the India office of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Previously, he was chairman of the board for CARE India, a nonprofit working toward the empowerment of women and girls from poor and marginalized communities, as well as member of the Boards of Reserve Bank of India (RBI), National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), CRISIL, Institute for Financial Management and Research, CIPLA, and IKP Trust. He is chair of RBI’s Advisory Committee for the Licensing of Payment Banks; and a member of the government of India’s Task Force on Primary Health Rollout, the Health Commission for the State of Himachal Pradesh, and the Task Force on Global Health at the Institute of Medicine in Washington, D.C. From 1987 to 2007, he worked with ICICI Bank, India’s largest private lender, and was a member of its board of directors from 2001 to 2007. He left his position within ICICI to serve as the founding president of the ICICI Foundation for Inclusive Growth, the bank’s corporate social responsibility wing. “

Mor’s 6 point vision for India:

universal electronic bank accounts for financial inclusion Nachiket Mor Committee

So, Mor seems to be a proponent of  linking bank accounts to the Aadhar card (India’s biometric id, the largest of its kind in the world).

The Modi govt is forcing Aadhar through, although the Supreme Court claims it is voluntary, through  schemes such as the  Jio free sim for Aadhar-linked cards (in Tamil Nadu). Jio is a product of billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance company.

Using the pretext of helping poor people out of the fire of debt to the money-lender in the village, the Mor 6-point vision moves the poor, middle-class and rich into the frying-pan of debt to the global banking system and casino capitalism.  The global markets, as I’ve shown repeatedly on this blog,  are heavily rigged in favor of the big banks and the global cabal.

The Mor/Gates Foundation vision is also fully involved in extending “health-care” to Indians – via vaccines, big pharma experimental drugs, and the rest of the toxic brew that has poisoned even highly-educated and politically-aware Western populations.

 

 

Myths and Facts About Black Money

In the headlong pursuit of a completely digitalized economy some fundamental truths have been denied or distorted by the media and replaced with popular myths:

I MYTH: Digitalization is a feature of advanced economies. Less developed countries should be moving toward it.

FACT: According to the Wall Street Journal, 80 percent of German transactions are in cash, while in the US, the figure is 32%. Hoarding of cash is common where negative interest rates prevail or are threatened by the government. Hoarding occurs widely in Switzerland and Japan.

FACT: Digitalization is a BUG, not a feature, of advanced economies. It is digitalization that enables the banking system to manipulate people’s financial habits. The aggressive marketing of debit and credit cards traps unwary consumers into greater and greater indebtedness.

II MYTH: Income from non-criminal activities hidden from the tax-man is as “black” as income from immoral, criminal, or subversive activity hidden from the tax-man.

FACT:   Merchants and traders who hide their money from the tax-man are simply not anti-social elements like terrorists or drug-peddlers. For one thing,  merchants do pay other taxes besides income taxes. Secondly, since they are self-employed and create jobs, they act as the engine of the real economy, from which the professional and bureaucratic classes derive their own income.  Many would not remain in business if they had to comply with the regulatory and tax burden imposed by the government, not only for financial reasons but because such transparency would compromise their trade secrets and expose them to business theft, very likely from the corrupt nexus of big business and the state.  Third, having a large part of the economy based in cash protects the whole economy from the direct manipulation of global finance capital.  Rather than eliminating the cash-based kulaks, the rest of India should be emulating them.

III MYTH

Demonetization is a temporary “inconvenience” that a patriotic Indian must put up with for the greater good.

FACT: Expropriating the savings  of people across the board for WHATEVER scheme, even if it were the most brilliantly conceived and executed,  is a monstrous act, unique in the annals of constitutional republics with a functioning judiciary and press.

And expropriation it is. The notes theoretically are being “exchanged.” In practice, people cannot withdraw their own money for living or business expenses beyond stringent limits, and this state of affairs is likely to last for at least 7-9 months, if not longer. Those businesses and individuals that cannot survive with these restrictions have been eliminated. Permanently. Whole industries are closing down. The country is extremely vulnerable to foreign military attack or embargo in this state.

On top of that, the demo has set off a huge migration of the population back to the villages.

Modi now claims that that was his intention all along. (Adding a third explanatory layer to his constantly revised narrative about black money).

But explanations are redundant at this point.

It is shocking that an Indian PM even suggests that such a sweeping, radical project can be imposed unilaterally, no matter what the cost.

Such a utilitarian calculus, sacrificing whomever the PM wishes to whatever vision he thinks is necessary, is no better than that employed by Hitler, Stalin, Mao or any other totalitarian dictator from the right or left.

It is an assault on the people’s right to property and life in the most fundamental way.

Shame on the media for covering this fact over with phony rhetoric about “poor planning” and “poor implementation.”

Carpet-bombing an entire nation in ostensible pursuit of a handful of terrorists is a war-crime, irrespective of its planning or execution.

It is genocidal in effect.

So is seizing an entire economy’s cash supply.

 

 

Modi Indonesian Partnership Follows Reuben, Rothschild Investments

Modi’s strategic interest in Indonesia seems to follow investments made by the Reuben brothers and the Rothschild family:

London – Britain’s billionaire Reuben brothers are setting up a partnership with Transasia Minerals Holdings to tap Indonesia’s coal and metals deposits, lured by the country’s vast mineral wealth.

The project means a return to natural resources for the siblings, who built their fortune with Russian aluminium company Trans-World Metals, but later sold out and put their money in private equity and property.

The pair will buy a 30 percent stake in the venture, the Asian Metal Resources Corporation (AMRC), the parties told Reuters on Friday. Transasia, which is owned by the Aslanov family from Uzbekistan, will hold the rest.

“Reuben Brothers has huge experience and knowledge in terms of the business of natural resources, and attracts the support of the world’s largest institutions as a result,” a spokesman for Transasia said in an emailed statement.

The two parties did not disclose financial details, but a source close to the two families said that the brothers would pay an initial $500 million in equity and debt, valuing the entire venture including debt at $1.7 billion.

The brothers, who are making their investment through Reuben Brothers Resources, have also negotiated the right to raise their stake to 49 percent at a later stage.

The deal follows Nat Rothschild’s venture into Indonesia, where the banking family’s scion holds 11.7 percent in miner Bumi Plc after a tie-up with the politically well-connected Bakrie family.

Spread across 17,000 islands, Indonesia has some of the world’s largest deposits of coal, gold, copper and tin, and there is increasing interest from investors in the strategic potential of Southeast Asia’s largest economy.

The joint venture between the two families will acquire and develop mining interests in Indonesia, specifically coal in Borneo, copper and gold in Sumbawa and surrounding islands, and nickel on Sulawesi, the parties said.”

 

Evidence Of Birla, Sahara Bribing Modi

From the Wire:

In 2013, there was a CBI raid on the Aditya Birla Group of companies, in particular Hindalco, in connection with the coalgate scam. In that raid, apart from recovering Rs 25 crores in cash, the CBI also recovered some information stored in the computer of the CEO of the Birla group – Amitabh. Several documents were recovered – some of them showed bribes being paid to some Environment Project J, which is obviously to the ministry or to the minister of environment. We know that around the same time the Birla group of companies was trying to secure environmental clearances from the ministry of environment for a large number of their projects. So those clearly represented bribes paid for getting the environmental clearances. There was another set of documents which was recovered from the computer of Shubhendu Amitabh, which said, “Gujarat CM – Rs 25 crores. 12 paid. 13?”

Unfortunately, though these documents showed payment of bribes and therefore, offences under Prevention of Corruption Act, the CBI did not register any FIR on this matter but just passed the papers on to the income tax (IT) department.

Income tax department did a somewhat detailed investigation into the matter. They questioned Amitabh many times in which he admitted that he had written, “Gujarat CM – Rs 25 crores. 12 paid. 13?” But he said that “Gujarat CM” meant Gujarat Alkalis and Chemicals. When asked what the C and M stood for he was unable to answer and the IT department concluded that he was lying.

They also found that there was a large amount of cash which was being received through Hawala by the Birla group and was apparently being paid to various people. But despite this the IT department did not refer the matter back to the CBI for investigation of these ostensible offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act and the matter was sought to be buried at that level. After that we understand that the Birla group has approached the IT settlement commission for settling the matter and the hearings have been concluded; the matter is likely to be settled after which there is this apprehension that the papers seized in the raids will be returned back to the Birla group.

The Sahara raid took place on November 22, 2014. In this raid Rs 137 crores of cash was seized from their offices in Noida, from the corporate office of the chairman, and a large number of documents, some loose sheets, computer data from his personal staff were seized, which showed details of proposed as well as actual payments made to various senior political figures. One of the documents which was seized – a printout of a detailed spreadsheet – in which the first three columns represent the cash the Sahara group received on different dates from different sources and the total comes to Rs 115 crores. Thereafter, this document also represents cash payments to different people on different dates and the places where the payment has been made, and the persons who have taken the payment are also mentioned. It is signed by the IT officer, two witnesses and one of the Sahara officials. Several such documents were recovered in this raid. There was another one which was partly overlapping with minute differences. For example, in the previous one the payments which were referred to as, “cash given at Ahmedabad, Modiji”, in other documents they are referred to as, “cash given to CM Gujarat”. There are Rs 40 crores given at Ahmedabad to Modiji, Rs 10 crores given to CM of Madhya Pradesh, Rs 4 crores to CM of Chhattisgarh, Rs 1 crore to CM of Delhi which at that time was Ms Sheila Dikshit. These are all payments made between 2013 and March 2014.

Despite recovery of such incriminating documents and in such detail which showed pay-offs made to various senior political figures, the IT department did not refer this matter to the CBI for investigation under the Prevention of Corruption Act. They apparently prepared some appraisal report which according to my understanding does not deal with these papers and the pay-offs, and these documents were buried. The person who was responsible for burying the documents of both Birla and Sahara was K. V. Chowdary, who was heading the IT investigations at the time and thereafter was appointed, apparently as a reward, as the chief of central vigilance commissioner of the Central Vigilance Commission (CVC). It was the first time a revenue officer was appointed although there were a number of complaints against him; his name appeared several times in the entry register of the infamous former CBI director, Ranjit Sinha, who was involved in interfering with the income tax assessment of Ponty Chadha. He was also involved in the stock guru scam which is apparently still under investigation. Despite that, Chowdary was still appointed. We challenged his as well as the appointment of another person in the CVC. Because of our information that he played a major role in suppressing the information, we have filed an application. When I got these documents in October, I sent a complaint to CVC, CBDT, the Enforcement Directorate, CBI and to the SIT on black money, saying that these are highly incriminating documents and according to the principles laid by the Supreme Court in the Jain Hawala case these should have been investigated – whether these payments were made, why were they were made, if these were bribes or some other kind of payments – but none of that was done. The matter was sought to be buried.

Therefore, we have eventually moved the Supreme Court, filed an application in the petition that we had filed challenging the appointment of the CVC and that application will be heard on Friday.

Sahara diaries mention a lot of names but they don’t specifically name the politicians, for example, like you said the Delhi CM and so on. Are there more? Who are the other prominent politicians mentioned in the list?

There’s Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Delhi CM at the time, Sheila Dikshit, Chhattisgarh CM Raman Singh and the Gujarat CM at the time, Mr Modi. Mr Modi is also personally mentioned as Modiji. Largest payments are made to him in the Sahara diaries, more than Rs 40 crores. One other politician which is mentioned prominently is Shaina NC of the BJP and one of the documents says that she was being asked to intercede with the advocate general of Maharashtra for withdrawal of some case which was pending against Sahara. Perhaps the Sebi case (which was mentioned as the Bombay case in the papers).

The Modi government is already in the know of these papers because you have already written to various agencies. What are the kind of replies you got from the government?

Well, I only received one response from the CVC after ten days saying, “Will you please confirm whether you have sent this complaint?” I immediately confirmed that I sent this complaint and I am not aware as to what they have done, or whether they have done anything in this matter because unfortunately, it seems that the CVC himself, as the head of investigation of income tax was responsible for suppressing this.”

Modi Bribed By Globalist-connected Sahara

Rahul Gandhi has come out with the revelations he’s been promising for a few days – evidence that Modi was bribed in his Gujarat days by the now-jailed owner of the Sahara group conglomerate.

Glancing at Sahara’s resume, I was struck by this piece at Crain’s that suggests that Sahara works closely with and is beholden to the powers-that-be:

Next month’s auction for the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan was canceled after the holders of the mortgage reached a deal to give the borrowers more time to sell the property and pay back the loan, said a person with knowledge of the matter.

The hotel’s ownership has been in limbo for two years. Billionaire brothers David and Simon Reuben [Lila: Iraqi Jews born in India] hold the mortgage on the five-star hotel and had scheduled a foreclosure auction for April 26, according to the person, who asked not to be named because the deal is private. The Reubens bought the loan from Bank of China Ltd. after a default by the property’s current majority owner, Sahara India Pariwar, last year. Sahara is controlled by Subrata Roy, who was imprisoned in India in early 2014 for defrauding investors.

A spokesman for the Reuben brothers didn’t immediately respond to an e-mailed request for comment.

The chateau-like Plaza, located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and Central Park South, has changed owners many times over its 109-year history. Presidential candidate Donald Trump bought the Plaza in 1988 and married his second wife, Marla Maples, there. Trump sold it to a group including Prince Alwaleed bin-Talal of Saudi Arabia, who then sold it to Israel’s Elad Group, which converted some of the hotel rooms to condominiums. Bin-Talal retains a minority stake in the Plaza, as does an entity tied to hotelier Sant Singh Chatwal.

For sale were the Plaza’s hotel rooms, its restaurants and retail space, according to the person with knowledge of the matter. It was to be sold in a package with the Dream Downtown hotel, a trendy property in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood that is located one block from the elevated High Line park, the person said.

The two hotels serve as collateral for the Bank of China loan and are cross-collateralized with the Grosvenor House hotel in London. The Dream hotel is owned by Sahara’s Roy and Chatwal. The combined mortgages for the New York properties total about $500 million, the person with knowledge of the matter said.”

So who is Sant Singh Chatwal? The Sikhs have been working closely with the NWO elites and it is a religion with a large number of Jewish (in the modern ethnic sense)  converts.

Well, first, he is an Indian hotel magnate  who got caught skirting federal campaign finance rules between 2007 and 2011 to donate to Hillary Clinton, among others.

Chatwal’s position as a major donor to Ms. Clinton, along with Lyn Forester de Rothschild, is depicted at Muckety.com.

The Reuben brothers come from the immensely powerful Iraqi Jewish family of the Sassoons, long-term associates of the Rothschilds.

Like Rothschild-front Khodorkovsky, the Reubens got rich buying Russian public assets at auction during the shock-therapy administered in that country under Yeltsin,  until Vladimir Putin came into power:

A profile of the two in The Guardian notes that what paid off for them was the entry into Russia when other investors were wary of doing anything in the post-Soviet, “chaotic capitalist” market. Transworld bought large chunks of the privatised Russian aluminium sector but had to sell it off for 300 million pounds to oil giant Sibneft in 2000 as the business climate in the country turned hostile for them under Vladmir Putin. “Transworld enjoyed 7 percent market share in the global aluminium market.”

According to the piece from which the above is excerpted, the brothers have ties to the Russian Mafia, which, as noted elsewhere on this blog, works with the globalist elites.

All this, including the presence of Prince Alwaleed bin Talal and Donald Trump, in the mix,  makes it certain that Sahara was an agent or front for Rothschild interests in the first place.

Which means Modi, Sahara’s bribed errand boy, is nothing more than their agent too.

Which is why Rahul Gandhi made mention of the 99 percent and the 1 percent in his diatribes.

On the face of it, this was a denunciation of the ruling elites of the NWO.

But Gandhi’s language betrays him as controlled opposition.

The 99 and the 1 percent is a Kabbalistic meme used by the powers-that-be to frame the debate about globalism in terms of inequality, about the rich versus the poor.

But inequality in itself is not the problem.

It is, at its worst, a symptom.

The problem is totalitarianism, the end to which the centralization of finance tends.

The problem is central banks and the fiat money system and their corrosive effect on every aspect of  life.

Behind Modi Note Ban, Pro-Bank Tax Billionaires

Arthakranti Sansthan (Institute for Economic Revolution) is the Pune-based outfit that has claimed the authorship of Modi’s currency ban program.

Anil Bokil, the founder of the think-tank met Modi in the summer of 2016 and reportedly made a big impact on the PM with his presentation on banning high denomination notes.

Bokil’s plans have been thoroughly debunked here.

Similar to the Bokil tax is the Tobin tax (Bokil does not agree with that characterization) that Ellen Brown was promoting a while back and which was a bankster ploy, even though Brown might have advocated it innocently.  Discussion here at EPJ of the Tobin tax, Soros’ backing of it and objections on libertarian grounds.

Soros is a Rothschild front and given the figures profiting from the Modi ban, the chances are that the Bokil proposal is backed in some indirect fashion from London.

Bokil previously approached Rahul Gandhi (controlled opposition, despite his crowd-pleasing attacks on Modi) with no result.

Bokil is supposed to be an ascetic former engineer who no longer works but lives on small amounts of money given to him by his mother. That seems implausible to me so I searched for information about Arthkranti’s funding but couldn’t find it.

The outfit looks very suspicious to me, given that its main objective in banning high denomination notes is to reduce the use of cash altogether, dispense with income tax (which is hard to assess in India), and go straight to a bank-transaction tax, which has always been the wet dream of bankers and fintech giants.

Sure enough, on the Arthkranti website, I find a list of eminent people supporting the bank tax project that includes.

Controlled Dissent Disinformation On Modi Ban

Jayant Bhandhari, yet another “fake libertarian” expat Indian, comfortably retails spin about the Modi ban that no doubt endears him to his corporate libertarian masters:

Bhandari bunk in green, my comments in brown:

“See if you can spot a rich person here [in the queues]. Rich and connected people, if they really needed to exchange banknotes, used the mafia (which employed millions of poor people to queue at banks), police (who used ID copies of old prisoners) or banks (who simply swapped the currency notes). It is the desperately poor people who have suffered.”

Lila: Yes, very rich, politically savvy and corrupt people might use mafias. The ordinary affluent business or technical class indeed do have to stand in queues. I know people who run businesses and rely on the ATM who simply have not been able to get enough cash to run their businesses and feed their families and have had to beg money from friends. Some of these people were very well connected,  just not corrupt. Unlike Bhandari, perched in Canada, I am right on the ground in India and my plans here are in disarray because of the cash crunch. Which world is this shill living in? Obviously, there are far more poor and lower middle-class people that well-off in the country, but I can assure you this is not only about hitting the poor. Perhaps of course all Indians appear like an amorphous mass to a certain breed of expat. Small businesses are not run by the poor – they are run by modestly wealthy people. They have taken a huge hit and are in fact the prime target of this move since they are potential tax-payers. For the record, neither I nor my immediate family runs a small business.  My parents are pensioners from a professional background who have been highly inconvenienced by the ban. My mother who routinely shops at the local street vegetable market tells me potatoes have practically disappeared. At 83, running around from pillar to post, trying to exchange notes and beg for your own money, is not inconvenience, it is serious harassment. Maybe Mr. Bhandari would like to exchange his comfortable gig with her lot.

Bhandari:

“India has no intellectual backbone, with its middle class — in what is still an entrenched caste system — unconcerned about the man-made crisis that has hit this large number of desperately poor people.”

Lila: India has plenty of intellectual back-bone. Unfortunately, indigenous critics rarely get mainstream attention, unless they massage the sensibilities of the ruling class. For example, intrepid hero Bhandari took one look at my blog posts criticizing Zionism and after first inviting me to speak at one of his capitalist conferences,  backed off at once, displaying zilch of the backbone he demands in people in far less favorable circumstance than himself.

Re caste differences, this is a red herring. I do not know many Indians who do not sympathize with the poor.  Most of the country is socialist in sympathy and highly religious in temperament, and feeding the poor and giving alms are obligatory for most. Witness the popularity of all schemes of welfare in this country, whether religious or political. In fact, this is why the poor have been trotted out as the excuse by the Western elites for all manner of social engineering from the Green Revolution onward. They constitute a readily accepted excuse.  The social engineering has had the sole consequences of hampering native industry and entrepreneurship, just as the anti-corruption drive has. Perhaps Bhandari should check that history out. It’s called Fabian Socialism and it wasn’t invented in India, but Britain.

Bhandari: Indians have mostly taken their troubles in stride. The international media have seen this as a sign of perseverance and a deep desire among the poorest to bring about positive fundamental change in society. In reality, the lack of protests is mostly indicative of Indians’ lack of moral instincts, a common problem with irrational societies.”

Lila: Apparently, Bhandari doesn’t realize that it takes money to make revolutions,  which is why behind the Russian revolution and the French revolutions,  one can spot the money of the bankers.  Of course, were Indians to riot on a large-scale (as they might in communist-dominated West Bengal), that would be portrayed in the press as a sign that brown people cannot rule themselves and are barbaric and violence-prone, which is the usual disingenuous junk trotted out by shills to conceal the results of Western black ops. 

Indians are a highly rational people. And corruption and tax evasion at the lower levels are a very rational response to corruption at the highest levels. It makes no sense to pay taxes when the government routinely loots its citizens, in cahoots with the very British imperial institutions and entities that Bhandari, a shill for the false libertarianism that proceeds from such institutions as the Simon Fraser Institute (heavily funded by Zionist entities), is so eager to impress.

As for the “British-rule-is-needed-in- India” meme with which Bhandari ends this contemptible piece, that only identifies him completely for what he has already tacitly revealed himself to be – a useful sycophant and tool whose discourse  poisons disinformation alternatives like Zerohedge. That is of course their raison d’etre. Their job is to coopt and corrupt dissent in the West. I could say more, but hey, I am too busy running for the fourth time downtown on a crowded town bus to get my weekly share of cash, if I am lucky, from my own account….which will enable me to buy from the vegetable market that depends on people like me buying to stay ahead of the Walmarts, Amazons, Visa Cards and other paymasters for whom Bhandari and the rest of his kind ultimately shill.  

 

 

 

 

Financial Terrorists Behind The Digital 9-11 On India

Which companies are behind the digital companies profiting from the Modi cash ban?

Market share by issuer of the credit-card companies:

Chase Bank – 31.7%

Bank of America – 15.8%

Wells Fargo – 10.9%

US Bank – 9.9%

Citibank, Capital One, the Rest

I only began using credit cards recently, with many second-thoughts about it. From today, I will be reversing this. More I cannot blog.

Chase is now owned by JP Morgan, which recently opened its first branch in India, near Chennai.

In the US, the Rothschild interests have always preferred to operate behind the facade of  J. P. Morgan.

Paytm, an Indian digital payment portal promoted by the Modi government, is owned by One97 Conmunications, whose largest share-holder is Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba.

Alibaba is advised by N. M. Rothschild

and has merged with Yahoo’s Chinese operation.  Yahoo recently admitted that millions of its account users were “hacked” in 2014.

Alibaba is also invested in another Indian e-commerce portal, Snapdeal.

Ma is a strong supporter of Big Data’s use in state surveillance.

5 Ways To Fight Modi’s Digital Dictatorship

The mainstream media is using the cash starvation of India to tom-tom digital payment platforms, ranging from Visa and Master card, Amazon, Flipkart, and Alibaba,  to Paytm, Paylatr and a host of similar ventures.

Behind them are globalist/intel-subservient multinationals like Alibaba (Paytm) and Blackrock (Paylatr).

The same goes for digital currency like Bitcoin, which, as I’ve blogged over and over, is an intelligence-operation,  with the signature of the NWO all over it.

So what does the aam admi in India do?

Here are my proposals, shorn of any detail that would allow the government to queer them in advance:

  1.  Minimize or even end your use of Visa and Master card as soon as possible. Let these corporations feel the same pain felt by millions of small businesses destroyed by the stooge of the multinationals.
  2.  Consider filing suit against any of the major corporations that have profited from this scheme. Research and document any ties they have to the NGOs (like Arthkranthi) that proposed the cash ban to Modi. Consider actions against such NGOs. Modi is only a useful tool. Making Modi alone the target of popular outrage (as the CIA-backed outfit Avaaz does) is a limited hang-out option.
  3.  Voice your outrage openly and educate as many people as you can.
  4.  Oppose all of Modi’s other digital surveillance projects, from his diabolical DNA bank and central monitoring system  to his proposal to link aadhar cards and smart phones via e-wallets.
  5.  Avoid getting an Aadhar card yourself. If you have to, consider multiplying and confusing your data so as to render it useless. I will leave you  to figure out what that means. In that spirit, use every loophole you can to get out of the government’s surveillance data-base…..but don’t blog your methods, lest the authorities penalize you and end the loop-hole.

Modi Ban Creating Bengal Famine

In Bengal, famine is imminent, as a result of  Modi’s murderous cash ban:

Demonetisation has hit citizens across India, but it is the lower stratas of society that are struggling the most with the currency ban. Farmers in Bengal have said that if the situation carries on for 15 days more, the state could be headed for a famine as the state stares at an impending food shortage.

Bengal as a state relies heavily on agriculture and 70% of the rural economy has been hit hard by PM Modi’s demonetisation move. The paddy planted in the last season is ready for reaping, but the farmers can’t do anything about it. They cannot sell their harvest. 50% of the total cultivation – 20 lakh hectares of paddy – are lying in their fields, untouched.

With all this produce on the verge of being wasted, farmers fear that a famine-like situation is highly possible due to food shortage.”

 

 

Historic Silk-Weaving Destroyed By Evil Stooge Modi

Rothschild puppet, former tea-wallah and current Payt-Wallah (h/t to Mamata Banerjee), Narendra Modi destroys the historic Benares silk-weaving industry

“In Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s political base of Varanasi, weaver Zainul Abedin stares at the uneven mud floor of his home. Behind him, more than a dozen handlooms lie idle.

Abedin is part of the collateral damage of Modi’s 8 November decision to ban high-value currency notes, effectively cancelling 86% of cash in circulation. The move was designed to stifle corruption and tax evasion, but many of the hardest-hit are workers in India’s vast and intricate informal economy—the small businesses, shops, drivers and countless other basic industries and services that employ more than 90% of Indian workers.

Most are poor like Abedin, who earns Rs250 a day, but collectively they account for almost half the economy. That’s some $1 trillion, or more than the GDP of Indonesia.

Modi’s cash ban has broken our backs,” said Abedin, 39, who makes Varanasi’s famous silk fabrics, shot with gold and silver, and says he can no longer feed his children. “We weavers won’t last if this continues for even another month.”

Modi Reenacts Rothschild-Engineered Indian Famines

Excellent analysis of the Modi ban’s cataclysmic impact on the aam admi (common man) in India:

Published: December 16, 2016 18:43 IST
Bengal famine 1770: “The British had removed a large fraction of the coinage, evidently, which destroyed the mechanism of the exchange of goods. It is difficult to buy food when there is no money.”

– Richard Stevenson, historian

“Money for day to day transactions became scarce. In rural Bengal, rupees alone had amounted to two-thirds of the currency. (In Modi’s India, the banned notes amounted to over 86% – my note). Money became so dear that prices of all other goods slumped; the scarcity of money was accompanied by deflation. Artisans, weavers and workers were thrown out of work due to the slump in demand. The credit market collapsed…without credit and in the absence of traders, equalizing supply and demand became difficult and had a destabilizing effect on the economy.”

– Sashi Sivaramkrishna, In Search of Stability: Economics of Money, History of the Rupee

That was in the 18th century. Ever since the midnight of 8/9 November 2016, the economy has suffered so severe a liquidity crunch that, says the CII, the decline in daily trade is of the order of 50-70%. This is just as it was in 1770 – precisely because “the removal of a large fraction of the coinage” (86% in demonetized notes, up from two-thirds in 1770) led to “money for day to day transactions becoming scarce”!”

Owing to the prevailing uncertainty, even those with ready resources in 2016 are not entering the market, as they did not in the 18th century. Sales of high-end automobiles – usually paid for by cheque or other banking instruments – are down between 20% (Hyundai) and 38% (Mahindra). Two-wheelers are hit by 35-40%; tractor purchases have collapsed by 63%; in the labour-intensive textiles and garments sector, four lakh workers have been laid off, and 60,000 in leather. These are figures for the last three weeks of November. This is not in consequence of only demonetization but the deleterious collateral damage that demonetization has inflicted on the economy as a whole.

Leaving aside apologists for the Modi regime, most independent economists are agreed that GDP for the next two and possibly three quarters has taken such a hit that GDP growth will decline by at least one percentage point or more, with Ambit Capital estimating that GDP growth will be more than halved to 3.5% for FY 2017.

Transition costs before the restoration of normalcy is brought about have been estimated by the Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy to be in the region of Rs. 1.28 lakh crore, borne by ordinary households, commercial and manufacturing enterprises, banks, government and the RBI. Moreover, deposits of demonetized notes have already crossed Rs. 13 lakh crore of the Rs. 15 lakh crore earlier in circulation. Almost all these deposits are lilywhite, representing the hard-earned income and savings of ordinary folk. Black money held in cash has never exceeded 5-6% of the total stock of illegally held wealth. So it was always ridiculous to imagine that the menace of illegal money could be met by demonetizing so-called High Denomination Notes (HDN). The Government gave their game away when they informed to the Supreme Court that they hoped to garner 4 lakh crores through black money hoarders not depositing HND for fear of exposure. The BJP’s evident but unstated intention was to use this bonanza to announce populist schemes through the Union Budget on the eve of the Uttar Pradesh and Punjab elections. In the event, I am given to understand by reliable sources that internal estimates in the RBI show that the sterilized amount on the last day of December is unlikely to exceed Rs. 50,000 crore. Thus, there will be no bonanza for Modi to compensate the aam admi for the rough time he has been put through.

And times have been rough since Modi went on TV that dreadful night of 8/9 November. Just as the kisan and khet mazdoor were recovering from two successive years of drought, cash-dependent sales, transport, marketing and distribution of agricultural produce, especially of perishable fruits and vegetables, have suffered huge losses along the entire supply chain from the farm to the mandi and the rehriwallah. Non-availability of ready money has resulted in a staggering drop in labour employed in farm and farm-related activities. Plantation labour is not getting paid, not because plantation owners and management do not have the money to pay them, but because owners and management are unable to access their own money.

Similar is the situation in construction and real estate, the second-largest employers after agriculture, accounting for 34-45 million daily-wage jobs in an economy of jobless growth. Contractors are laying them off in droves because the contractors are denied access to their own money to pay their labour. Wage-earnings in construction have thus been slashed by 80%-90%. One prominent news magazine has a cover story portraying Real Estate as descending from “Boom to Doom”.

As for manufacturing, millions – literally millions – of small and medium enterprises have closed down. At least 60,000 microfinance companies are badly hit, repayment collections having dropped by 600 cores and disbursements having collapsed in similar measure. (See the parallel to 1770 when, to quote Sivaramkrishna, “Artisans, weavers and workers were thrown out of work due to the slump in demand.”) Urban unemployment has shot up from a little over 7% to well over 9%. As one financial analyst succinctly put it: “cash shortages (have) hampered growth of new work, buying activity and production”. (That is what Stevenson meant when he said of the shortage of money that aggravated the causes of the Bengal famine of 1770, that this “destroyed the mechanism of the exchange of goods”). As for the informal sector of the economy that employs 90% of the work-force, the renowned economist, Pronob Sen of the International Growth Centre, has bluntly stated that demonetization has “penalized” the entire informal sector and damaged it “permanently”.

Six Lies About Modi Cash Ban

Some quick thoughts about mass media propaganda on the Modi cash ban in India.

  1. Critics in the mainstream media, especially from Western establishment mouthpieces like the London School of Economics, are repeatedly mentioning “the poor” as the primary victim of the cash ban.  Now,  daily workers are certainly suffering, because they can’t be paid in cash regularly, but they are very, very far from being the only people suffering. Indeed, the affluent, the middle-class, the lower middle-class, urban residents and rural, the whole of the country has been profoundly affected. Being rich does not exempt you from standing in line for days trying to get out a trivial part of your savings. Being rich (on paper) does not prevent your business from collapsing because you cannot order supplies or because consumer demand has collapsed with the cash crunch.
  2.  Mainstream critics are breezily assuming the virtue of the alleged objective of the plan: rooting out corruption, “black money,” and crime.  But the printing of  new 2000 rupee notes belies this assumption. Larger bills are usually favored by people involved in shady cash dealings.  By contrast, the banned 500 and 1000 rupee notes were widely used in the legitimate cash-based economy. This suggests that attacking the cash-based economy was the real goal of the cash ban.
  3.  Mainstream critics are repeatedly associating cashless with crimeless or “clean” money.  The cashless project has become equated with the cleanliness program. Swacch Bharat or Clean India and Digital India have become one. But in fact,  money-laundering and the financing of criminal activity and terrorism are usually done through digital payments, especially the much-touted Bitcoin, which, elsewhere on this blog, I have deconstructed as a tool of the financial elites. Bitcoin India has soared multiple times following the cash ban. Who profited? When will the media go after this story?
  4.  The mainstream media has given us very sparse coverage of the broad and profound destruction of the economy underway, instead, opting for sound-bytes about a “temporary” decline in GDP that at most will take a few months to recover. But GDP itself is a spurious indicator of the economic well-being a country.  A far better indicator of the effects of the cash ban is taking a cross-section of the industries being devastated: the breadth and depth is astounding. The numbers are in the tens and hundreds of thousands. The workers involved are in the millions. From the ceramic and diamond industry in Gujarat (Modi’s home state) to the chit-fund industry, farming, and leather-working; from book sellers to vegetable sellers, from real estate to Ayurvedic medicine, there is not a business that has not been dealt a severe blow, often,  irretrievably. The closing of tens of thousands of small businesses that constitute the majority of a sector leaves the market wide open for big businesses. Thus, the diamond business in Gujarat has been ruined for the small businesses that dominate 60% of it. But the large diamond merchants have survived and will no doubt expand. Now, who are those large diamond merchants? Could they be the same merchants who dominate the global industry from Antwerp? What is their relationship to the Modi government and its foreign backers?
  5.  The last lie that is being circulated about the cash ban is that it was an ill thought-out, poorly planned act.  The evidence does not support this lie. The “cashless” project is a globalist objective with hoary roots, going back, proximately, to the 1990’s, when the capital markets were financialized and centralized. However, theoretically, since the inauguration of the Internet, the potential has always existed for the economic world to be digitalized and centralized. We must assume that those behind the adoption of the ‘net knew this. So, truthfully, at least from the 1970’s, the cashless project has been in the works. Secondly,  Western fintech has been trying to get its foot into the Indian market over the last several years, without success. The Modi cash ban has now forcibly opened the market for it. Indeed, finance capital has RAPED the country. Here is a real “rape crisis” that the Western media is glossing over.
  6.  My final point in this post is perhaps the most disturbing. While there is indeed a global move toward “cashless,” the notion that is being circulated in the MSM that the Indian cash ban is more-of-the-same is totally false and most likely disinformation. There is no Western country in the world in which the cashless project has intentionally and immediately inflicted the kind of damage that the Modi ban has done. The Western measures  are staid, gradualist, and leave scope for the use of cash and for privacy, since the infrastructure and policing available in the West is excellent. In India, by contrast, the cash ban is nothing less than dekulakization, and should bluntly be called economic warfare. Given that the powers-that-be behind Modi constitute the right-wing of the Anglo-Jewish oligarchy, the cash ban is an act of monumental treachery on the part of the PM; a rape of the native population and industry by a conspiracy of the state and big business; and the savage, unilateral imposition of a digital dictatorship from New York, London, and Tel Aviv, on the no-longer sovereign republic of India.

Bolshevism and the Jews

http://www.orthodoxchristianbooks.com/articles/371/bolshevism-jews/

 

“Bolshevism and the Jews” – Victor Moss

 

The unprecedented catastrophe of the Russian revolution required an explanation… For very many this lay in the coming to power of the Jews, and their hatred for the Russian people. For after the revolution of February, 1917 the Jews acquired full rights with the rest of the population, and the (already very porous) barriers set up by the Pale of Settlement were destroyed. Jews poured from the western regions into the major cities of European Russia and soon acquired prominent executive positions in all major sectors of government and the economy.

As Alexander Solzhenitsyn has written, February brought only harm and destruction to the Russian population. However, “Jewish society in Russia received in full from the February revolution everything that it had fought for, and the October coup was really not needed by it, except by that cutthroat part of the Jewish secular youth that with its Russian brother-internationalists had stacked up a charge of hatred for the Russian state structure and was straining to ‘deepen’ the revolution.” It was they who through their control of the Executive Committee of the Soviet – over half of its members were Jewish socialists – assumed the real power after February, and propelled it on – contrary to the interests, not only of the Russian, but also of the majority of the Jewish population, – to the October revolution.

Nevertheless, at the time of the October revolution only a minority of the Bolsheviks were Jews (in the early 1900s they constituted 19% of the party). “At the elections to the Constituent Assembly ‘more than 80% of the Jewish population of Russia voted’ for Zionist parties. Lenin wrote that 550,000 were for Jewish nationalists. ‘The majority of the Jewish parties formed a single national list, in accordance with which seven deputies were elected – six Zionists’ and Gruzenberg. ‘The success of the Zionists’ was also aided by the Declaration of the English Foreign Minister Balfour [on the creation of a ‘national centre’ of the Jews in Palestine], ‘which was met by the majority of the Russian Jewish population with enthusiasm [in Moscow, Petrograd, Odessa, Kiev and many other cities there were festive manifestations, meetings and religious services]’.”

The simultaneous triumph of the Jews in Russia and Palestine was indeed an extraordinary “coincidence”: Divine Providence drew the attention of all those with eyes to see this sign of the times when, in one column of newsprint in the London Times for November 9, 1917, there appeared two articles, the one announcing the outbreak of revolution in Petrograd, and the other – the promise of a homeland for the Jews in Palestine (the Balfour declaration).

This coincidence was reinforced by the fact that the theist Jews who triumphed in Israel in 1917, and especially in 1948 after the foundation of the State of Israel, came from the same region and social background – the Pale of Settlement in Western Russia – as the atheist Jews who triumphed in Moscow in 1917. Sometimes they even came from the same families. Thus Chaim Weitzmann, the first president of Israel, points out in his Autobiography that his brothers and sisters were all either Zionists or Bolsheviks. M. Heifetz also points to the coincidence in time between the October revolution and the Balfour declaration. “A part of the Jewish generation goes along the path of Herzl and Zhabotinsky. The other part, unable to withstand the temptation, fills up the band of Lenin and Trotsky and Stalin.” “The path of Herzl and Bagritsky allowed the Jews to stand tall and immediately become not simply an equal nation with Russia, but a privileged one.”

Indeed, the Russian revolution may be regarded as one branch of that general triumph of Jewish power which we observe in the twentieth century in both East and West, in both Russia and America and Israel. The mainly Jewish nature of the Bolshevik leadership – and of the world revolution in general – cannot be doubted. Such a view was not confined to “anti-Semites”.

Thus Winston Churchill wrote: “It would almost seem as if the Gospel of Christ and the gospel of anti-Christ were designed to originate among the same people; and that this mystic and mysterious race had been chosen for the supreme manifestations, both of the Divine and the diabolical… From the days of ‘Spartacus’ Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany) and Emma Goldman (United States), this worldwide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Nesta Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the nineteenth century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire. There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews. It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others.”

Douglas Reed writes: “The Central Committee of the Bolshevik Party, which wielded the supreme power, contained 3 Russians (including Lenin) and 9 Jews. The next body in importance, the Central Committee of the Executive Commission (or secret police) comprised 42 Jews and 19 Russians, Letts, Georgians and others. The Council of People’s Commissars consisted of 17 Jews and five others. The Moscow Che-ka (secret police) was formed of 23 Jews and 13 others. Among the names of 556 high officials of the Bolshevik state officially published in 1918-1919 were 458 Jews and 108 others. Among the central committees of small, supposedly ‘Socialist’ or other non-Communist parties… were 55 Jews and 6 others.”

Richard Pipes admits: “Jews undeniably played in the Bolshevik Party and the early Soviet apparatus a role disproportionate to their share of the population. The number of Jews active in Communism in Russia and abroad was striking: in Hungary, for example, they furnished 95 percent of the leading figures in Bela Kun’s dictatorship. They also were disproportionately represented among Communists in Germany and Austria during the revolutionary upheavals there in 1918-23, and in the apparatus of the Communist International.”

According to Donald Rayfield, in 1922, the Jews “reached their maximum representation in the party (not that they formed a coherent group) when, at 15 per cent, they were second only to ethnic Russians with 65 per cent.”

The London Times correspondent in Russia, Robert Wilton, reported: ”Taken according to numbers of population, the Jews represented one in ten; among the commissars that rule Bolshevik Russia they are nine in ten; if anything the proportion of Jews is still greater.”

On June 9, 1919 Captain Montgomery Shuyler of the American Expeditionary Forces telegrammed from Vladivostok on the makeup of the presiding Soviet government: “… (T)here were 384 ‘commissars’ including 2 negroes, 13 Russians, 15 Chinamen, 22 Armenians, and more than 300 Jews. Of the latter number, 264 had come to Russia from the United States since the downfall of the Imperial Government.”

The Jews were especially dominant in the most feared and blood-thirsty part of the Bolshevik State apparatus, the Cheka, which, writes Brendon, “consisted of 250,000 officers (including 100,000 border guards), a remarkable adjunct to a State which was supposed to be withering away. In the first 6 years of Bolshevik rule it had executed at least 200,000. Moreover, the Cheka was empowered to act as ‘policeman, gaoler, investigator, prosecutor, judge and executioner’. It also employed barbaric forms of torture.”

So complete was the Jewish domination of Russia as a result of the revolution that it is a misnomer to speak about the “Russian” revolution; it should more accurately be called the Russian-Jewish revolution.

That the Russian revolution was actually a Jewish revolution, but at the same time part of an international revolution of Jewry against the Christian and Muslim worlds, is indicated by an article by Jacob de Haas entitled “The Jewish Revolution” and published in the London Zionist journal Maccabee in November, 1905: “The Revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution, for it is a turning point in Jewish history. This situation flows from the fact that Russia is the fatherland of approximately half of the general number of Jews inhabiting the world… The overthrow of the despotic government must exert a huge influence on the destinies of millions of Jews (both in Russia and abroad). Besides, the revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution also because the Jews are the most active revolutionaries in the tsarist Empire.”

But why were the Jews the most active revolutionaries? What was it in their upbringing and history that led them to adopt the atheist revolutionary teachings and actions of Russia’s “superfluous young men” more ardently than the Russians themselves? Hatred of Christ and the Christians was, of course, deeply imbedded in the Talmud and Jewish ritual – but the angry young men that began killing thousands of the Tsar’s servants even before the revolution of 1905 had rejected the Talmud as well as the Gospel, and even all religion in general.

Donald Rayfield writes: “The motivation of those Jews who worked for the Cheka was not Zionist or ethnic. The war between the Cheka and the Russian bourgeoisie was not even purely a war of classes or political factions. It can be seen as being between Jewish internationalism and the remnants of a Russian national culture…

“…What was Jewish except lineage about Bolsheviks like Zinoviev, Trotsky, Kamenev or Sverdlov? Some were second- or even third-generation renegades; few even spoke Yiddish, let alone knew Hebrew. They were by upbringing Russians accustomed to a European way of life and values, Jewish only in the superficial sense that, say, Karl Marx was. Jews in anti-Semitic Tsarist Russia had few ways out of the ghetto except emigration, education or revolution, and the latter two courses meant denying their Judaism by joining often anti-Jewish institutions and groups.”

This can be illustrated from the deathbed confession of Yurovsky, the murderer of the Tsar: “Our family suffered less from the constant hunger than from my father’s religious fanaticism… On holidays and regular days the children were forced to pray, and it is not surprising that my first active protest was against religious and nationalistic traditions. I came to hate God and prayer as I hated poverty and the bosses.”

At the same time, the Bolshevik Jews did appear to sympathize with Talmudism more than with any other religion. Thus in 1905 the Jewish revolutionaries in Kiev boasted that they would turn St. Sophia cathedral into a synagogue. Again, in 1918 they erected a monument to Judas Iscariot in Sviazhsk, and in 1919 – in Tambov! Perhaps the strongest evidence of the continued religiosity of the Bolshevik Jews was the fact that when the Whites re-conquered Perm in 1918 they found many Jewish religious inscriptions in the former Bolshevik headquarters – as well as on the walls of the basement of the Ipatiev House in Yekaterinburg where the Tsar and his family were shot.

While officially rejecting the Talmud and all religion in general, the revolutionaries did not reject the unconscious emotional energy of Talmudic Judaism. This energy was concentrated in a fiercely proud nationalism, a nationalism older and more passionately felt by virtue of the fact that the Jews had once truly been the chosen people of God. Having fallen away from that chosen status, and been scattered all over the world by the wrath of God, they resented their replacement by the Christian peoples with an especially intense resentment. Roma delenda est – Christian Rome had to be destroyed, and Russia as “The Third Rome”, the Rome that now reigned, had to be destroyed first of all. The atheist revolutionaries of the younger generation took over this resentment and hatred even while rejecting its religious-nationalist-historical basis.

L.A. Tikhomirov wrote: “It is now already for nineteen centuries that we have been hearing from Jewish thinkers that the religious essence of Israel consists not in a concept about God, but in the fulfilment of the Law. Above were cited such witnesses from Judas Galevy. The very authoritative Ilya del Medigo (15th century) in his notable Test of Faith says that ‘Judaism is founded not on religious dogma, but on religious acts’.

“But religious acts are, in essence, those that are prescribed by the Law. That means: if you want to be moral, carry out the Law. M. Mendelsohn formulates the idea of Jewry in the same way: ‘Judaism is not a revealed religion, but a revealed Law. It does not say ‘you must believe’, but ‘you must act’. In this constitution given by God the State and religion are one. The relationships of man to God and society are merged. It is not lack of faith or heresy that attracts punishment, but the violation of the civil order. Judaism gives no obligatory dogmas and recognizes the freedom of inner conviction.’

“Christianity says: you must believe in such-and-such a truth and on the basis of that you must do such-and-such. New Judaism says: you can believe as you like, but you have to do such-and-such. But this is a point of view that annihilates man as a moral personality…”

Thus Talmudism creates a personality that subjects faith and truth to the imperative of action. That is, it is the action that is first proclaimed as necessary – the reasons for doing it can be thought up later. And this corresponds exactly both to the philosophy of Marx, for whom “the truth, i.e. the reality and power, of thought must be demonstrated in action”, and to the psychological type of the Marxist revolutionary, who first proclaims that Rome (i.e. Russia) must be destroyed, and then looks for an ideology that will justify destruction. Talmudic Law is useful, indeed necessary, not because it proclaims God’s truth, but in order to secure the solidarity of the Jewish people and their subjection to their rabbinic leaders. In the same way, Marxist theory is necessary in order to unite adherents, expel dissidents and in general justify the violent overthrow of the old system.

So the Russian revolution was Jewish not so much because of the ethnic composition of its leaders as because the Satanic hatred of God, Christ and all Christians that is characteristic of the Talmudic religion throughout its history was transferred – by spiritual rather than genetic heredity – from the nationalist Talmudic fathers to their internationalist atheist sons.

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.

 

 

 

Black Leaders Wisely Back Off From Trump

Lew Rockwell rushes to claim the endorsement of a 100 black religious leaders for Donald Trump.

But, alas for him and Trump, the black leaders have – wisely – backed off.

There is a theory that Trump is simply a Trojan horse to take down the Republicans and get Hillary Clinton back in.

That was my thought initially.

Now I’m not sure. And I’m not sure it matters.

Trump as a Trojan horse to put Trump in is bad enough.

 

 

 

Hasan Green: Pass Me Not O Gentle Savior

Fanny Crosby:

Pass me not, O gentle Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by

Refrain:
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry,
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
Help my unbelief.

Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.

Thou the spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee,
Whom in Heav’n but Thee.

Blog Problems II

I posted a short explanation of some problems I’d had with the blog this morning.

Obviously, it was published, because I see from my admin panel that someone read it.

Yet it’s vanished completely.

I know I didn’t delete it. And it’s not to be found inside another post, as I thought.

In any case, if you’re wondering what happened to that post, I don’t know. I didn’t delete it. Earlier, the order of my posts was completely reversed and posts from 2007 when I began the blog were at the top.

I switched that back. Now this.

So, if you see anything else wrong, just post a comment and I’ll fix it.

 

 

Black Lives Don’t Matter, Neither Do White….

All this campus late-teen angst can be saved by realizing that  no-one’s lives really “matter” in a grand world-historical sense.

Most human lives, with some exceptions, make very little difference in any way to the course of human history.

Your life only matters to you, mommy and daddy, and Jesus.

Maybe not even mommy and daddy.

Get over it.

 

Thread With Merkel Link Deleted At LunaticOutpost

I noticed that the Merkel piece that Rense picked up had been posted at Lunatic Outpost, a conspiracy forum. Now, a few hours later, the entire thread has been deleted.

That was shortly after I blogged that Lasha Darkmoon is an intelligence plant.

Was it unrelated? Did a moderator just see the thread and decide I was persona non grata?

See below. The link was on the Merkel is a Polish Jew thread that was deleted, as indicated below. I’ve seen links of mine deleted like this in several forums. Yet, commentary that really is bigoted gets posted. Go figure.

Homosexuality At Center Of Upcoming Synod

A homosexual priest grabs the lime-light just before an important Roman Catholic synod, led by Pope Francis, focusing on how divorced and remarried people, people living together without marriage, and homosexuals, should be treated in the Church:

 Pope Francis is celebrating Mass at St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, at the start of a synod of Roman Catholic bishops focusing on family issues.

The run-up was dominated by a row over a Vatican priest who on Saturday announced he was in a gay relationship.

Poland-born Krzysztof Charamsa said he wanted to challenge the Church’s “backward” attitude to homosexuality.

He was later dismissed from his post at the Vatican’s office in charge of guarding Roman Catholic doctrine.

A Vatican spokesman said Monsignor Charamsa’s decision to give interviews on the eve of the synod was “grave and irresponsible” and would put Pope Francis under “undue media pressure”

In an interview with the Corriere Della Sera newspaper, the 43-year-old priest said: “It’s time the Church opened its eyes and realised that offering gay believers total abstinence from a life of love is inhuman.”

The controversy has set the scene for what some fear could be a fractious three weeks, says BBC religious affairs correspondent Caroline Wyatt.”

What is so bizarre about Msgr. Charasma’s claim about “inhumanity” is that millions of heterosexual people have accepted the Church’s teaching on the subject without difficulty.

Millions of single women and men who weren’t able to find a spouse have led celibate lives contentedly.

What’s more, millions of couples, who do not have sex  either because of illness or choice, have led abstinent lives, without complaining about  “inhumanity.”

Christianity doesn’t forbid anyone from loving anyone else.

David loved Jonathan very deeply.

Same sex devotion is not only not condemned, it occupies  plenty of space in the Bible.

There’s  Ruth’s love for her mother-in-law, Naomi. There’s Jesus’ love for John. 

But devotion and sexual desire are two different things.

The Bible doesn’t object to same-sex love; it objects to same sex…sex.

It also objects to many other kinds of sex – between unmarried men and women; between men and women married to other people; between people who have divorced other people; between parents and their children of any age; between brothers and sisters of any age; between adults and minors; between minors; between the living and the dead; between human beings and animals; between groups of human beings; between people consecrated to abstinence….

All these millions of people have managed to refrain from sex in all these forbidden situations,  for centuries, without suffering inhumanly…or even making it an issue.

They’ve also managed to fill their lives with love.

Love is not sex and conflating the two produces the propaganda of the homosexual activists.

Thus, perhaps, it is not sex, but instruction in semantics, that Monsignor truly needs.

Trump’s Father Was KKK

I saw this last night but couldn’t get into the blog until this morning:

Trump’s father was arrested in a brawl with the Ku Klux Klan in 1927.

Note – this is not the original Klan that grew up in the South.

This is the first revival that was busted after the stock-market crash.

There was another revival during the Civil Rights Movement.

Now you see what a Trojan Horse the whole Trump candidacy was.

It discredits reasonable objections to immigration policy, it tars the whole conservative movement by association, and it revives the link between Christianity and racism.

Now, consider that just before this story was released in the media, we just had another, in which Poland, Slovakia, and Czechoslovakia agreed to take in only Christian migrants.

Prior to that, some anonymous Syrian gunman says that 40,000 ISIS soldiers are being brought into Europe under cover of migration. Is that a planted story or real? I don’t know yet.

Trump is all FOR Muslim immigration to Europe, but against Mexican (mostly Christian) immigration to America.

Now he is shown to be connected to both the Zionist elite and to the Ku Klux Klan, which is a Nazi-like ideology.

Nazis and Zionists always collaborated when needed.

200-Yr-Old Body Of Monk Defies Decomposition

From The Siberian Times:

A mummified monk found in the lotus position in Mongolia is ‘not dead’ and is instead one stage away from becoming a real-life Buddha, it has been claimed.

Forensic examinations are under way on the amazing remains, which are believed to be around 200 years old, having been preserved in animal skin. But one expert has insisted the human relic is actually in ‘very deep meditation’ and in a rare and very special spiritual state known as ‘tukdam’.

Over the last 50 years there are said to have been 40 such cases in India involving meditating Tibetan monks.

Dr Barry Kerzin, a famous Buddhist monk and a physician to the Dalai Lama, said: ‘I had the privilege to take care of some meditators who were in a tukdam state.

‘If the person is able to remain in this state for more than three weeks – which rarely happens – his body gradually shrinks, and in the end all that remains from the person is his hair, nails, and clothes. Usually in this case, people who live next to the monk see a rainbow that glows in the sky for several days. This means that he has found a ‘rainbow body’. This is the highest state close to the state of Buddha’.

He added: ‘If the meditator can continue to stay in this meditative state, he can become a Buddha. Reaching such a high spiritual level the meditator will also help others, and all the people around will feel a deep sense of joy’.

Initial speculation is that the mummy could be a teacher of Lama Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov.

Born in 1852, Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov was a Buryat Buddhist Lama of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, best known for the lifelike state of his body.

Mummified monk is ‘not dead’ and in rare meditative state, says expert


 


Ganhugiyn Purevbata, who is the founder and professor of the Mongolian Institute of Buddhist Art at Ulaanbaatar Buddhist University, said: ‘Lama is sitting in the lotus position vajra, the left hand is opened, and the right hand symbolizes of the preaching Sutra.

‘This is a sign that the Lama is not dead, but is in a very deep meditation according to the ancient tradition of Buddhist lamas’.

The mummified remains, which were covered in cattle skin, were found on January 27 in the Songinokhairkhan province of Mongolia.

However, there is more to the story and now police have revealed that the monk had been stolen from another part of the country and was about to be sold off.

An unnamed official said that it was taken from a cave in the Kobdsk region by a man who then hid it in his own home in Ulaanbaatar.

He had then been planning to sell it on the black market at a ‘very high price’, with local media claiming he wanted to take it over the Mongolian border. Police uncovered the plot and quickly arrested a 45-year-old, named only as Enhtor.

According to Article 18 of the Criminal Code of Mongolia smuggling items of cultural heritage are punishable with either a fine of up to 3million roubles ($43,000) or between five and 12 years in prison. The monk is now being guarded at the National Centre of Forensic Expertise at Ulaanbaatar.”

Rabbi’s Shemitah Prophecy Is NWO Fraud

Some Christian web-sites are skeptical of Jonathan Cahn’s Shemitah theory and his attempt to make America the duplicate of ancient Israel:

The Berean Call says:

This imposed Shemitah judgment was very specific and involved  only the nation of Israel . Since no Gentile nations were ever obligated to keep the Shemitah, there is no scriptural basis for suggesting that any other nation would ever experience an imposed Shemitah judgment. Yet, this is precisely what Jonathan Cahn suggests that America has experienced.

Cahn also wrongly implies that the Shemitah is essentially a universal  principle  that is somehow integrated into the order of the universe. Cahn makes the following assertion in his book:

[KAPLAN] “Seven years—the biblical period of time that concerns a nation’s financial and economic realms.” [This and all quotes are taken from: Jonathan Cahn,  The Harbinger  (Lake Mary, FL: Frontline, Charisma Media/Charisma House Book Group, 2011)]

Although Israel was on a seven-year economic cycle, no biblical passages support Cahn’s idea that natural economic cycles of seven years exist for nations in general. Furthermore, financial experts have not identified any seven-year economic cycle. —http://www.thebereancall.org/content/october-2014-extra-shemitah

If anything happens during The Shemitah (September 2015), it’s not because of God and a connection to Isaiah 9:10, it’s because the Freemasons who control this world are pushing the buttons and they are making things happen (in cycles of 7 as it’s a ‘magic’ number) for their own purposes to further the progress of a New World Order.”

Visiting Indian Grandpa Paralyzed By Police Thug

While affluent expatriate Indians like Ms. Gandhi urge us to ponder the oppression of women by hygiene and etiquette, the real violence suffered with depressing regularity by  male immigrants at the hands of police  does not seem to have got her attention:

From Voices of Liberty.com (Feb 12, 2015)

Welcome to Police State America, Sureshbhai Patel. The 57-year old grandfather hadn’t been away from India more than a week when he was paralyzed by police in Madison, Alabama. Patel was visiting his son and daughter-in-law to help care for their 17-month old baby.

Then things got suspicious. Patel went on a stroll. While the sun was still out. This stirred the Madison Police Department into swift action.

When multiple police officers approached him, Patel didn’t have much to say, at least not in English since he doesn’t speak the language. What would be one of his last voluntary motions before cervical fusion surgery, Patel put his hands in his pockets. One officer attempted a pat-down then took the old man down, smashing his neck and body to the point of paralysis.

According to Madison Police, this all stemmed from a neighbor’s call to them about a “suspicious” man.

From NBC News:

We  are preparing to file a lawsuit against the City of Madison, Alabama, and the officer who injured Mr. Patel,” Hank Sherrod, Patel’s civil rights attorney, told NBC News, “The lawsuit will include claims for violations of Mr. Patel’s constitutional rights. Presently, however, the City of Madison is refusing to release the officer’s name and refusing to provide the media or the family with audio and video of the incident.”

Patel remains partially paralyzed, although the hospital reported him in good condition Monday. His son said that he can now move his right leg a little and he can raise both arms, but his left leg is still paralyzed and he cannot make a tight grip. He had no health problems previously, and he is expected to have a long recovery.

“This is broad daylight, walking down the street,” said Sherrod, “There is nothing suspicious about Mr. Patel other than he has brown skin.”

NWO Stooge Modi Pushing DNA Profiling On India

[The bill was passed on August 13, 2015.]

From Wide-Awake Gentile.wordpress.com, some frightening news:

The Modi Govt is trying to push a bill called the Human DNA Profiling Bill 2015 quietly during the mansoon session of Parliament.Given the oppositions silly noise over some non issues and the media attention that gets it gets , its no surprise that the Human DNA Profiling Bill 2015 has had little if not no mainstream media attention

In all fairness it was  the Globalist Manmohan Singh’s Govt which had first initiated the bill in 2007 . The bill was originally proposed in 2007 and in 2012 drafting of the bill began.The draft bill was prepared by the Department of Biotechnology. The bill proposes to form a National DNA Data Bank and a DNA Profiling Board, and use the data for various specified purposes.

The bill proposes to set up a national DNA data bank and a number of state or regional data banks that will feed into the national data pool. Every data bank will have six categories under which DNA profiles will be filed – crime scene index, suspects’ index, offenders’ index, missing persons’ index, unknown deceased persons’ index, and volunteers’ index. The DNA profiling board will have the power to include more categories. In the offendersindex, the DNA information will be linked to the name of the person from whom it was collected. All others will be linked to a case reference number. Source Scroll in Article

Given the massive amounts of corruption in Indian Police investigations framing a person whose DNA is in the database is a piece of cake

Law and poverty expert Usha Ramanathan and Centre for Internet and Society executive director Sunil Abraham, who are members of an expert committee on DNA profiling constituted by the government, have written dissent notes against the final draft of the Human DNA Profiling Bill. Ramanathan notes that one of the biggest challenges of a DNA database is function creep – the gradual widening of the use of a technology beyond the purpose for which it was originally intended.

The CDFD ( Hyderabad-based Centre for DNA Fingerprinting and Diagnostics) is using the CODIS software bought from the US’s FBI and compatible with their systems

images1

The bill does not clarify under what circumstances someone’s DNA will be collected for the database with or without consent .

While countries such as the US and the UK permit collection of DNA without consent, their laws are clear about when it can be done.

[Here, the author is being optimistic. Indeed, the constitution has become whatever anyone says it is, these days.]

Whether the Indian Constitution allows the state to take DNA without consent is something that will certainly be decided by the Courts.

The Bill does not set a limit to how long someone’s DNA will kept on record.

In the UK, DNA data of a recordable offense can be kept for only six years.

The bill even allows the creation of population statistics, identification research, parental disputes, issues relating to reproductive technologies and migration. These provisions could one day allow the government to PUSH CIVILIANS TO PROVIDE DNA DATA .

The draft Bill  involves collection of “intimate body samples” of living persons from “the genital or anal area, the buttocks and also breasts in the case of a female”.

DNA swabbing in Western countries is usually done by swabbing the mouth.

The Bill has no specific statutory safeguards on how  store , retrieve or who can access potentially huge database of the most private and intimate kind

The UID database already has biometric information for most Indians.

If any government in future decides to link the UID database with the DNA database , it would place in the hands of the government and its agencies all personal details about millions of citizens. Will the information be made available for research?

There is very little clarity on custody of the DNA samples collected and the data stored.

If this custody gets privatized and given the few Indian private companies with the ability to maintain such data, in a few years time American European or Israeli private companies could easily have access to this huge databank. If it somehow gets passed on to their home spy agencies the CIA and Mossad , the potential for those two agencies to use the DNA data to frame  blackmail & trap  thousands of innocent Indians is very high.

Feminism Damaging UK Health System

AngryHarry.com:

In areas such as medicine, the requirement to give women ‘equal opportunities’ by demanding that medical schools try to train as many women as they do men to become doctors is leading to far worse conditions and shortfalls in the NHS – a service that is already failing the country abysmally.

The fact that so many of these women doctors will take out years from their profession in order to have children and to look after them (with some never returning) is a major drain on a system that is already unable to cope.

In theory, it sounds great to have as many women doctors working in the NHS as men. In practice, however, the consequence is that EVERYONE has to wait a good deal longer to be dealt with, and the entire service is considerably less efficient.

And with waiting lists already far too long even for urgent surgical operations, the price for this ‘equality’ is rather high. And it costs some people their health and some people their lives.

Most people have a great deal of sympathy with the view that women should be permitted to become doctors working for the NHS if they have the requisite abilities – even if they do log out of the system to bring up families. But there is a price to be paid. In the case of the NHS, everyone who uses it pays a price – particularly the old, the young, the weak, the vulnerable and the sick.

In fact, the most needy of all pay the price!

And these are mostly women.

many times more women are negatively affected by an impoverished NHS than there are women doctors.

Indeed, many times more women are negatively affected by an impoverished NHS than there are women doctors.

Indeed, all women are affected by this.

Further, of course, all of us will need medical treatment at some stage in our lives, and so all of us will suffer from the adverse effects of an NHS that is greatly diminished by the low long-term career aspirations of a relatively small number of women.

[January 2014 – UK citizens will now be aware that tens of thousands of people are known to have died over the years – with thousands more having received appalling treatment – because of the serious shortcomings that have arisen in the NHS over the past three decades.]

Furthermore, the training of doctors is a very expensive business that stretches well beyond the five years that students spend at medical school. And with 60% of women doctors giving up their careers within ten years, the training of women to become doctors is largely a waste of taxpayers’ money.

Moreover, the country loses the potential talents of all those young men who would have embarked upon long-term careers in medicine were it not for the fact that women were taking up the places at medical schools.

And, of course, as with all the major professions, experience is just about everything. And so when women doctors in the NHS give up their careers after a few years of work, the country is denied the services of men doctors who would actually have had the same period of experience.

And who would then have gone on to get even more experience.

In other words, these future highly-experienced doctors are lost forever.

In summary, the training of women to become doctors significantly degrades the health system. It harms the most needy of people the most. It negatively impacts on all of us. It is a waste of taxpayers’ money. And it persistently deprives the country of a large number of highly experienced doctors.

But that’s feminism for you.

As in so many other areas, it has a huge cost.

And why do we inflict this huge cost upon the nation?

We do this so that a few thousand women can benefit from having a career in medicine

We do this so that a few thousand women can benefit from having a career in medicine, with most of them choosing to abandon it for something more to their liking.

What is the solution? Do we stop women from becoming doctors by giving all the limited number of places at medical schools to men?

Well, the purpose of this article was not to provide a particular solution to this problem, but to point out that this is yet another area where feminism extracts a very large price from just about everyone for the benefit of a few women. This needs to be pointed out rather than swept under the carpet.

Indeed, this ideology puts more importance on the career aspirations of a few thousand women than it does on the health of the entire nation; including the health of our children!”

So much for the notion that feminism is about “social justice” or the ending of  the “oppression” of women.  As Dirty Harry points out, for the vast majority of history, most men were as oppressed in their way as women were.

What liberated both were advances in technology and medicine, both largely made by men, as a matter of pure fact. How then did feminism “liberate women” except to turn most of them into entitled harridans who can neither keep home and hearth and please their mates nor compete on equal terms with men.

 

 

 

 

Rwandan “Genocide” Or Proxy War Between French & British?

From Andrew Gavin Marshall at Global Research. ca:

Rwanda’s Colonial Past

The Rwandan genocide occurred in 1994, but rose out of events in the late 80s and early 90s relating directly to Rwanda’s economy. This event was triggered by the assassination of Rwandan President Habyarimana in 1994, who was President during the1990 to 1993 civil war.

Due largely to its colonial past Rwanda’s economy is highly dependent on coffee exports and widespread divisions exist among its people. Most notable is the division fostered between the Hutu and the Tutsis, which began in 1926[9] as part of a Belgian strategy to “fuel inter-ethnic rivalries as a means of achieving political control…”[10] The Belgians favoured the Tutsis over the Hutu.

In 1962 Belgium gave up Rwanda and the Tutsis lost their monopoly of power, giving rise to Hutu control. Many Tutsis were expelled from office.[11] “In 1973 Hutu military leader, Juvénal Habyarimana and a group of his followers, executed a successful coup. Habyarimana and the Hutu elite led Rwanda through almost two decades of economic prosperity.”[11]

Economic Problems and Structural Adjustments

In the late 1980s, economic problems arose for Rwanda’s monoculture coffee economy. This started in 1987, when “the system of quotas established under the International Coffee Agreement (ICA) started to fall apart and world prices plummeted.” Rwanda’s state controlled fund that promoted coffee price stabilization became massively indebted.[12]

Deliberations were undertaken between Habyarimana’s government and the IMF and World Bank. The World Bank sent a group to Rwanda in 1988 to “review Rwanda’s public expenditure program,” and they implemented a Structural Adjustment Program with many conditions.[13]

This coincided with the start of the Rwandan Civil War (1990-1993), which formed as the Hutu aristocracy became divided against each other,”[14] and at the same time, a “guerilla group comprised of a majority of Tutsi refuges trained in Ugandan camps, [the] Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), invaded Rwanda and attempted to reach the capital Kigali,” which had the result of weakening Habyarimana’s regime and led to the civil war.[15]

The Structural Adjustment Program was implemented in this politically unstable context and required a 50 percent devaluation of the Rwandan franc, carried out in November 1990. This was “barely six weeks after the incursion from Uganda of the rebel army of the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF).” The economic shock exacerbated the civil war and resulted in massive inflation and significant increases in the price of fuel and food.[16]

Societal Collapse

“State enterprises were pushed into bankruptcy and public services collapsed,” including health and education.[17] In 1992, during the height of the civil war, the IMF ordered a second devaluation, which led to further price increases. In a single year coffee production tumbled by another 25 percent. Because so much land was dedicated to coffee there was not enough available to produce food.[18]

Widespread famines followed, which in turn led to the implementation of a World Bank and IMF Structural Adjustment Program requiring the liberalization of trade, economic deregulation, and cheap food imports and aid, which destabilized local markets.[19]

Under the Structural Adjustment Program Rwanda signed onto with the donor institutions, large loans were given to the Rwandan Central Bank for importing commodities. Many of the loans were “diverted by the regime (and its various political factions) towards the acquisition of military hardware (from South Africa, Egypt and Eastern Europe).”[20]

Western Military Backing

The years of the Rwandan Civil War and the genocide itself took place during a time when Madeline Albright was Bill Clinton’s Ambassador to the United Nations and Kofi Annan was the head of the UN’s peacekeeping operations. Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen alleged in his book, Jaded Tasks: Brass Plates, Black Ops, & Big Oil, that Albright and Annan ignored evidence that the US backed Tutsi-led Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF) was responsible for the April 6, 1994 terrorist missile attack on the aircraft carrying the Hutu president of Rwanda.[21]

Madsen explains that the initial RPF invasion of Rwanda from Uganda in 1990, “had the military backing of the first Bush administration [1989-1993], including Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney,” and that the aim of the RPF was to overthrow Rwanda’s Hutu president.[22] Madsen exposed how the RPF deputy leader, Paul Kagame was trained at US Army installations in the United States and when, during the 1990 invasion of Rwanda, the RPF’s leader was killed, “Kagame became the head of the guerrilla army, and his ties with the Pentagon, CIA, and State Department became closer.” Classified UN documents revealed that Annan and Albright were aware of this information.[23]

It came out in a French National Assembly inquiry that, “the U.S. even supplied the RPF with the Soviet-made surface-to-air missiles that were used to shoot down the Rwandan presidential aircraft,” and that a UN investigation team got a hold of information that, “a company linked to the CIA leased the warehouse used to assemble the missile launchers.”[24] However, the investigation was closed down once the relationship to the US was realized.

It was in 2004 when a French investigation was completed on the shooting down of the plane, and as Madsen explained, those who were close to the investigation had revealed a disturbing connection to what Madsen describes as a “shadowy organization” composed of powerful political and oil interests, commonly known as the “International Strategic and Tactical Organization.”[25]

Debt Repayment

Less than a year after the 1994 massacres Rwanda’s creditors approached the Tutsi-led RPF government regarding the debts of the former regime that had been used to finance the bloodshed. “The Tutsi-led RPF government, rather than demanding the cancellation of Rwanda’s odious debts, had welcomed the Bretton Woods institutions with open arms,” because, “They needed the IMF ‘greenlight’ to boost development of the military,” which is exactly where the new loans went.[26]

The genocide was successful in its intentions, as the French-supported Hutu Habyarimana government was replaced with a US-supported Tutsi Paul Kagame government, with the aid of US special forces and CIA. The situation should in fact be viewed as, “an undeclared war between France and America.”[27]

The aim was to “install an Anglo-American protectorate in Rwanda,” which, “enabled the US to establish a neocolonial foothold in Central Africa.” This was successfully achieved, as the language of the private and government sectors switched from French to English.[28]

Indian Property Set To Stagnate Or Crash

India’s Real Estate Bubble Market set for Stagflation in coming 5 years, if not outright Burst
Sneha Shah, 12 May, 2015

“India’s real estate market has seen price stagnation over the last one to one and half years as buyers have disappeared from the markets, given the stratospherically high prices of apartments and villas. The real estate bubble which is sustained based on constantly rising prices, has seen one of its most fundamental tenets going out of the window. No price rise means that investors are now looking for other assets such as equities because with an inflation rate of 5-10%, no price rise means a real reduction in value. There are also numerous anecdotes of prices falling by 15-20% in select pockets such as NCR and Mumbai, especially for extremely high priced areas such as South Delhi and Mumbai.

The real estate market has been built on a foundation of huge debt from public sector banks and black money. Both are under strain now, with the new government making it more onerous to generate black money; and the banks reluctant to lend, given their massive non-performing assets which have plunged their stock prices to new lows. There is also massive inventory which is piling up and straining the balance sheet of developers. The NCR region is supposed to have inventory of around 71 months, which is way above normal. The buyer sentiment is going down each day, with the poor execution record of Indian builders who are not only steeped in corruption but also bad at execution. Many developers have just stopped construction as they have no money. Unitech which is the second largest builder has left buyers in the lurch, with delays ranging upto 5 years and no visibility on when it will complete those projects.

Real estate in India allows retailer to leverage their savings and get tax breaks. This has artificially boosted price along with massive amounts of black money. Most of the corruption money in India (Saradha scam, FTI scam etc.) gets parked into real estate, as it can absorb massive amounts of money without too much scrutiny. Most consumers have almost no right, as the developers have huge power due to political and police patronage. There are one sided agreements and construction quality is quite pathetic. There are a huge host of taxes and duties that buyers have to pay, along with hefty registration amounts. Parking is also an extra payable which beats me. Where would a consumer park his car – on his head? Governments even charge apartment buyers for providing infrastructure (utility, roads etc.). Is that not supposed to be why consumers pay normal taxes.

India’s professional white collar workers are the biggest pansies in the Indian system.

 

 

[Lila: She means patsies.]

They have to pay huge taxes and get little or nothing in return. The business and trader class do not pay almost any tax, by bribing and falsifying their income. Agricultural income in India is not taxed. Even if you make $100 million from agriculture you will have to pay zero tax, but if you make $500 a month by honest hard work in a company, then you have to pay tax. No wonder so many Indian professionals have emigrated. The new government will have to change these anomalies in order for India to become a modern economy. Just putting out slogans will not help unless these structural issues are resolved.

Enough of my rants and back to the topic. India real estate prices make no sense at all, compared to any valuation metric. The price to income ratio is extremely high and the rental yield is abysmally low. Getting a rental yield of 2-3% is considered great, that is if you can find a tenant. Most people like to keep their apartments and real estate empty because they think keeping a tenant is a risk to their capital, if the tenant decides to illegally occupy the property. The Indian fascination and real estate price appreciation was driven by cheap global liquidity, black money and bad policies. Given where the prices have reached, I think that stagflation is the best option for the real estate industries. Steep price falls is also a possibility if the global liquidity situation tightens. In summary, investing in real estate is the stupidest thing to do right now.”

Hastert Indictment Is Outrageous

I’m not coming back to blogging yet, but I had to add my endorsement of Rockwell’s (and Glenn Greenwald’s) comments about the Hastert indictment:

Lew Rockwell is dead right about the insane indictment of the former GOP Speaker of the House, Dennis Hastert, on charges he structured money withdrawals from his bank account (“structuring” is the “crime” of taking out your own money from your own bank-account in the form of cash in such a way as to avoid triggering the bank’s reporting requirements):

This amiable dunce was installed so the hated and feared Tom Delay could run the House unimpeded. Now the Patriot Act that Hastert pushed at Delay’s instructions dhas resulted in his being indicted.

More proof Hastert is a boob: he talked to the FBI without his lawyer present. And where did this ex-high school wrestling coach get $3.4 million to pay someone off? If he’d listened to Ron Paul, and blocked the Patriot Act, he wouldn’t be facing a cage. As Ron also pointed out, about normal people, it is an outrage that you can go to jail for using your own money, earned and taxed, without filling out a government form. (Thanks to Diogenes).”

For those who are not aware, in the US, prosecutors and judges control the judicial system. There is rampant corruption and abuse of office that passes virtually unremarked in the major media.

There are professional, financial and bureaucratic incentives for government agencies to go after low-hanging fruit; that is, convict on  trivial offenses or harass ordinary people without connections, rather than pursue serious criminality (rapists, bank-robbers and the like).

The entire system is a form of blackmail and extortion of defendants, with the threat of incarceration hanging in the background, all in order to get revenues.

Meanwhile, the intelligence services and the prison system are also for-profit systems. The more surveillance and prison there are, the better the owners/investors in these systems do.

Naturally, the definition of what constitutes a crime expands and the number of “criminals” incarcerated increases.

I’ve had many criticisms of Greenwald over the Snowden business, but on this, his and Rockwell’s comments are excellent.

 

 

 

Russell Kirk On Living Like A Man

Russell Kirk (h/t Bradley J. Birzer, “The Awful Humanity of Russell Kirk”:

“The enlightened conservative does not believe that the end or aim of life is competition; or success; or enjoyment; or longevity; or power; or possessions. He believes, instead, that the object of life is Love. He knows that the just and ordered society is that in which Love governs us, so far as Love can reign in this world of sorrows; and he knows that the anarchical or the tyrannical society is that in which Love lies corrupt. He has learned that Love is the source of all being, and that Hell itself is ordained by love. He understands that Death, when we have finished the part that was assigned to us, is the reward of Love. He apprehends the truth that the greatest happiness ever granted to a man is the privilege of being happy in the hour of his death. He has no intention of converting this human society of ours into an efficient machine for efficient machine–operators, dominated by master mechanics. Men are put into this world, he realizes, to struggle, to suffer, to contend against the evil that is in their neighbors and in themselves, and to aspire toward the triumph of Love. They are put into this world to live like men, and to die like men. He seeks to preserve a society which allows men to attain manhood, rather than keeping them within bonds of perpetual childhood. With Dante, he looks upward from this place of slime, this world of gorgons and chimeras, toward the light which gives Love to this poor earth and all the stars.

Unusual Military Drills Suggest Conflict Anticipated

There seem to be a number of larger-than- usual or otherwise exceptional drills being held the world over, besides routine exercises.

1. AMERICAS

USA – JADE HELM15

(July 15 – September 15).  Involves 10 states (raised from 9 and 7). Involves elite special forces troops and a variety of domestic law enforcement agencies. Approximately 1,200 personnel in one state alone. Much larger and more widespread than any recent military drill in the US.

CANADA –

MAPLE CARAVAN (March 17 – April 18)

MAPLE RESOLVE (April 20 –  May 23)

Maple Resolve involves 4,500 military personnel from Canada, the US, and the UK and is said to be the largest Canadian drill this year. Maple Resolve 14 involved 5000 personnel.

2. EUROPE – NATO

NOBLE JUMP 2015

1500 troops take part in  a drill for NATO’s rapid response force, April 7- April 9.

SIIL-2015 (Hedgehog) – Estonia’s largest ever military drill. Involves 13,000 personnel. Involves forces from the US, the UK, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Belgium, Poland and the Netherlands. Ends May 15.

ZAIBO KIRTIS (Lightning Strike). Lithuania’s largest ever national drill. Involves 3000 personnel. Mobilization and cybersecurity were important concerns.

DYNAMIC MONGOOSE  –  Norway is hosting military drills involving 10 NATO countries and Sweden. They involve 5000 service men and focus on simulated submarine hunts and radar and sonar technology.

LOCKED SHIELDS 2015

Major NATO cyber-defense drill involving 17 nations in Estonia, involving 400 computer experts, in late 2014.

3. EURASIA

Russia put her Northern Fleet on full alert in mid- March 2015. In response to NATO and Eastern European exercises on her borders, Russia., the fleet launched exercises involving 38,000 troops, 41 ships, 15 submarines, and 110 aircraft.

Russia and China are holding joint exercises in the Mediterranean in mid-May, involving 9 ships. The exercises are said to be modest in size but they are the first between the two countries and the farthest ever from home for China.

4. ASIA

OPERATION FOAL EAGLE 2015

South Korean and US marines practicing amphibious beach assaults, along with air and sea operations, from March  2 – April 24, 2015. Involves 12,500 US troops and 200,000 South Korean troops.

US-PHILIPPINE balikatan (shoulder-to-shoulder) drill, starting April 20.  Involves 11,000 US and Philippine personnel and 61 Australian troops and is the largest such drill in 15 years.

Japan and the Philippines will hold joint maritime security exercises for the first time in the South China Sea on May 12 for two hours. 90% of the South China Sea is owned by China and China’s increasing power could threaten international waters through which Japanese trade has to pass.

In April, Pakistan and Russia announced that they would be beginning joint military drills for the first time ever.

 

Sartre’s Zionist Sympathies

Joseph Massad (via Electronic Intifada):

In his recent book, Welcome to the Desert of the Real, famed Slovenian socialist intellectual Slavoj Zizek tackles the Palestinian question in a most unoriginal manner. What concerns him most is not the foundational racism of Zionism and its concrete offspring, a racist Jewish state, nor the racist curricula of Israeli Jewish schools, the racist Israeli Jewish media representations of Palestinians, the racist declarations of Israeli Jewish leaders on the right and on the left, or the Jewish supremacist rights and privileges guiding Zionism and Israeli state laws and policies – all of which seem of little concern to him – but rather Arab “anti-Semitism” which should not be “tolerated”.

Zizek makes Zionist-inspired propagandistic claims that have no bearing on reality, namely that “Hitler is still considered a hero” in “most” Arab countries, and that The Elders of the Protocols of Zion and other anti-Semitic myths are found in Arab primary school textbooks. While he seems to note Israeli discriminatory policies against Palestinian citizens of Israel and Israeli daily terror visited upon the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, the conflict, for Zizek, seems like one of competing nationalisms and can be solved by possible NATO intervention. It is not Zionist Jewish colonialism and its commitment to European white supremacy in Jewish guise that the Arabs are reacting to and resisting; rather, it is Islam’s rejection of “modernity” triggered by a Jewish “cosmopolitanism” that characterises this conflict. “Israel’s stand for the principle of Western liberal tolerance” is attenuated in his essay by noting its neocolonial role, but this clearly does not prevent Zizek from visiting the racist Jewish state where he was a week ago delivering four lectures in which, according to Ha’aretzhe never mentioned the Palestinians or Israeli racism and terror once. Such is the legacy of Jean-Paul Sartre on many European leftist intellectuals.]

[Lila: I couldn’t find any proof that Sartre himself was of ethnic Jewish descent, although several websites referred to him as Jewish. However, at the end of his life, this infamous apologist for communist atrocities and outspoken atheist, whose theories poisoned the lives of millions of young minds, converted to Messianic Judaism, allegedly under the influence of his Jewish secretary. Again, my point in bringing up Judaism or Jewish ethnicity is not a racist one. It is because the Anglo-American Zionist establishment very often uses Jewish people and their concerns as the front behind which they operate. Thus it is important to identify mouthpieces of the Central Controllers. Sartre was one such mouthpiece.]

If Sartre failed to see how European Jews who left Europe as holocaust refugees arrived in Palestine as armed colonisers, Zizek’s approach is more insidious. While he insists that the holocaust is not connected to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, he proceeds in viewing the Jewish colonists as still remaining holocaust refugees and possible victims of some alleged Arab anti-Semitism. Herein lies his obsession with opposing the alleged anti-Semitism to which these Jews are subjected by those who resist their racist violence. n,Zizek’s own anti-Semitism which manifests in reducing Judaism to the anti-Semitic notion of a “Judeo-Christian” tradition and which identifies Jews anti-Semitically as “cosmopolitan”,

[Lila: Of course, Judaism cannot be reduced to Judeo-Christian, but neither can Christianity. Indeed, there is a far better defense for Christianity being the legitimate development of historical Judaism, then there is of current Judaism being the antecedent of Christianity.]

is never clear to Zizek who projects it onto the Palestinians.

While suspending the status of European Jews as holocaust survivors, these European intellectuals fail to see that much of Zionist colonialism began half a century before the holocaust and that Jewish colonists were part of the British colonial death squads that murdered Palestinian revolutionaries between 1936 and 1939 while Hitler unleashed kristallnacht against German Jews. Zionism’s anti-Semitic project of destroying Jewish cultures and languages in the diaspora in the interest of an invented Hebrew that none of them spoke, and in the interest of evicting them from Europe and transporting them to an Asian land to which they had never been, is never examined by these intellectuals. Nor do they ever examine the ideological and practical collusion between Zionism and anti-Semitism since the inception of the movement.

Zizek seems observant enough, in another essay, to note that Zionist Jews are employing anti-Semitic notions to describe the Palestinians. His conclusion is not, however, that Zionism has always been predicated on anti-Semitism and on an alliance between Zionists and anti-Semitic imperialists, rather he perceives the alliance that today’s Zionists have with anti-Semitism might as the “ultimate price of the establishment of a Jewish State”.

When these European intellectuals worry about anti-Semitism harming the Israeli settler’s colony, they are being blind to the ultimate achievement of Israel: the transformation of the Jew into the anti-Semite, and the Palestinian into the Jew. Unless their stance is one that opposes the racist basis of the Jewish State, their support for Palestinian resistance will always ring hollow. As the late Gilles Deleuze once put it, the cry of the Zionists to justify their racist violence has always been “we are not a people like any other,” while the Palestinian cry of resistance has always been “we are a people like all others.” European intellectuals must choose which cry to heed when addressing the question of Palestine.”
