The Fed’s Janet Yellen says economy healthy enough for usurers to start bleeding it again

That’s essentially what the Federal Reserve does, it monitors public wealth to regulate how much surplus production can be skimmed off the top. Usually all of it. But someone has to determine how much that is to prevent the banking vampires from sucking the public to death.


The European Union is a banking cartel to impose undemocratic reform & debt.

HURRAH for the British electorate who figured it out! Look at who else is NOT in the EU and you’ll see where the smart money is. Switzerland for one. What does that tell you?! Ironically London is the financial capitol of world usury. Let Londoners complain about BREXIT and the provincial “racism” that drove the UK to seek independance. It’s not xenophobia, it’s local autonomy! It’s what Greece should have done, it’s what Ireland should have done. Breaking with EU is the first step out of debt slavery and the “austerity” squeeze engineered to privatize public wealth. Now the Scotts who didn’t know enough to leave the parasitic UK are griping about being forced from the EU, doubling down on ignorance of their self interest. And Londoners are talking about seceding. The days of landed gentry and bankers carving out tax havens like Luxemburg and Lichtenstein are past. Hopefully the English peasant rebellion we’ve just witnessed will storm London next.
 
Addendum: John Pilger explains the BREXIT triumph nicely. Threats of dire financial consequences for leaving the EU are the work of extortionist. The pain will be real of course because that’s how extortionists rule.


Support the Rich, Work Harder


Class Warfare? It’s about fucking time.


Capital strikes again and again…

This is completely off the wall (street) but I had to laugh at it anyway.
There’s one of those K-Tel type commercials, if you don’t remember K-Tel then go ask your mommy, kiddo.
Now it’s “As Seen On TV” or, as I like to call it, a warehouse in New Jersey where they keep the money they freeze on your debit card, something like a hundred dollars if you order twenty dollars worth of crap (plus shipping+handling but that’s another story) and collect interest on your money for a month until they decide to finally process your order and take the hold off your account. All very legal and ethical if you have the morals of George Bush on crack.
This newest product is something called Slim Away Belt or something really lame like that.
It’s… a corset. An invention that was first marketed during the Dark Ages when torture was considered fun of some kind. So they take a thousand year old device to keep women from enjoying life, changed the laces out for zippers et voila ici, it’s still a corset. It would come in handy as a back brace in case you ever do real work. But when they talk about getting in shape without any effort you realize… never mind.
It does show a guy using it during exercise in order to sweat off water weight which somehow gives him sculpted muscles. Sorry, it just brings out my Inner Snotnose when I see what looks like an elaborate joke but costs money if you actually buy into it.
Aside from the moral tie in to the rest of Capital, which is an equal scam mechanism, like auctions which cost money even if you don’t buy anything


IMF pick Christine Lagarde-Obamette updates beau mot Cherchez La Femme

One of the boys, literally
IMF DSK replacement Christine Lagarde assumes leadership of the International Monetary Fund today, the world’s most powerful woman. Will she be the spoonful of sweetness to make austerity cuts go down? How’s your blood-sugar crashing on Obama? My guess is this fairy grandmother gambit will go down in Europe like an Obama Smurfette. To further my sexist analogy, imagine Lagarde the stereotypical bank loan officer, absolutely immovable. But Lagarde is personable, kindly, and maternal, and she’s willing to extend your loan, on the condition that you forfeit your house and all your possessions, and rent them from her. In the end you have nothing, but you don’t starve. By the way, the sheriff outside work for her. The IMF and the paramilitary riot police -that’s whose army. It’s a contract re-up you can’t refuse. That’s “austerity,” larceny with the improbably-legitimated veneer of usury, and it’s her last best offer.

Say’s Law and undemocratic monetarism

Richard C. Cook has written an excellent synthesis of C. H. Douglas, Keynes and Galbraith in Global Research repudiating the orthodox economics used to legitimate the Federal Reserve under which the world’s capitalist economies are enslaved.
 
Cook writes: “Overall, banks have served four main purposes—one legitimate, one dubious, one puzzling, and one deeply flawed.
