Central Banks Nervous as the Brixton Pound increases in Popularity*

Central Banks Nervous as the Brixton Pound increases in Popularity*

By John Vibes

One of the best ways for the general public to take power back is to develop alternative currencies — both local and global — that allow people to trade outside of the corporate-government banking systems and central bank notes.

Many people in different areas of the world have been moderately successful at implementing local currencies, such as Mountain Hours or Ithaca Hours, which have gained traction in the U.S.

In London, an interesting alternative currency bearing the face of pop singer David Bowie has recently come into circulation. According to Market Watch, the local currency is specialized for the Brixton community in southwest London. It is officially called the “Brixton Pound.”

Tom Shakhli, manager of the Brixton Pound effort, said, “They are using it because they want to feel connected to the local area. Every time you use it, you’re like a financial activist. You’re taking part in this act which is subverting the norm, which is to hand over your £10 note very passively.”

Shakhli pointed out that the project is intended to make a statement about the foundation of money, as well as provide an alternative to the current monopoly.

Shakhli said that his main goal with the project is to ask, “What is money? Does it have to be either printed by the state or created by the banks? Why can’t money be localized? Why can’t money feature a pop star or a black historian? Does it have to feature establishment figures?”

So far, there are currently 200 local businesses that have signed up to participate in the Brixton Pound program.

The increasingly popular Brixton Pound is making central banks nervous — and rightly so. Following the success of the Brixton Pound, new alternative local currencies are now popping up all over the U.K. The Oxford Pound, Kingston Pound, and Palace Pound are just a few of the currencies that have been recently introduced. The Bank of England has been forced to respond to these local currencies because of their popularity, deeming them “voucher schemes” and warning the public that they are unprotected when using them.

A document released by the Bank of England claims that “Local currency schemes lead to significant and unanticipated impacts on aggregate economic activity.” 

According to the document, the Bank of England will also attempt to delegitimize local currencies by “Design[ing] features and marketing material [to] help users recognise that local currency paper instruments are like vouchers and not banknotes.”

Three Category 4 Hurricanes Appear in Pacific Ocean at the Same Time*

Three Category 4 Hurricanes Appear in Pacific Ocean at the Same Time*

For the first time in recorded history, three Category 4 hurricanes have appeared in the Pacific Ocean at the same time and they are heading toward the Big Island of Hawaii.

(Your News Wire) Named Kilo, Ignacio, and Jimena, images of all three across the Pacific was captured by NASA at the weekend.

Science Alert reports:

The never-before-seen meteorological event involves the hurricanes Kilo, Ignacio, and Jimena, the latter of which has sustained winds of up to 225 km/h.

According to the US Weather Channel, we haven’t seen anything close to this event before – three simultaneous Category 3 hurricanes have yet to be recorded. While the most immediate threat is to the coast of Hawaii, Japan, the Philippines, and Taiwan are also currently on watch.

Right now, Ignacio poses the biggest threat to Hawaii; at midnight last Sunday, it was about 450 km to the southeast of the Big Island and is expected to travel north of the Hawaiian islands on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The hurricane, which has contained winds of up to 217 km/h, is unlikely to actually hit the coast, but experts are saying residents should expect heavy rain and winds of up to 63km/h as early as tonight, and a 6-metre swell and rip currents in the water before the storm settles back down later in the week. Needless to say – don’t go in the water.

After Ignacio sweeps past the north of Hawaii, it’s not yet clear in which direction it will head next.

Hurricane Jimena, on the other hand, is expected to sustain its ‘major hurricane’ status till at least the midweek, but so far, it poses no threat to any island just yet. But that’s only because forecasters aren’t really sure where its path will take it at this stage.

Kilo is the least threatening of the three, safely churning up the open waters of the Pacific with its 220 km/h winds.

The event has been linked to a stronger than usual El Niño event, which researchers are saying we should start to get used to, as many more are expected in the future.

“The appearance of the chain of hurricanes may be linked to the strengthening El Niño weather pattern being observed in the Pacific,” News.com.au reports. “The Australian Bureau of Meterology says the eastern half of the northern Pacific was now more than one degree warmer than the averages – with patches more than 2 degrees higher.”

Has CERN Shut Down?*

Has CERN Shut Down*

By Royce Christyn

A video posted to YouTube by Paul Begley is going viral on the internet right now because he has discovered, by monitoring CERN’s online motherboard, that CERN has shut down.

News is still coming in, with many believing it could be some sort of electrical outage.

Others, however, believe that this is all part of the proverbial “kick off” of the September 2015 “doom” that so many have been discussing.  Many conspiracy theories are flooding the web about September 2015 being the end of the world – or the dawn of a new beginning.

CERN has been at the centre of many of the conspiracy theories, so the video below is, at least, interesting with all things considered.

Coincidently, in June 2015, a high measure ionized radiation was registered.

It was dominated by cosmic rays: a mix of subatomic particles, X-rays and gamma-rays that come from outside our solar system. This higher level of cosmic rays for the adept is full of consciousness raising particles from the Divine to aid the Shift of the Ages. To identify it, the name Wave X has been given.

In September 2015 CERN in the attempt to split Wave X, which breaks up the stranglehold of negative destructive patterns that binds us to a lower consciousness shut down.

Quid pro quo

THE IMPACT OF THAT WAVE IS SAID TO BE ON THE CLOSING OF EID UL AD’HA, SEPTEMBER 27TH 2015..

Koch Brothers Made a Fortune from Hurricane Katrina Victims*

Koch Brothers Made a Fortune from Hurricane Katrina Victims*

Thursday marked the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The storm ravaged the Gulf Coast, especially the city of New Orleans and further highlighted the failures of President Bush’s administration, as he allowed the victims of the Category 5 storm to languish in horrid conditions while he made television appearances praising the irresponsibly slow response to the storm. Now we have learned, thanks to a new report, that the Koch Brothers are to blame for not just the slow recovery of the region, but also some of the damage.

The American Bridge Project has released a report that found that at least some of the damage from the superstorm may not have happened were it not for the GOP’s puppet masters, Charles and David Koch. The report reveals details about a class-action lawsuit against the Koch Pipeline Company and other oil companies, accusing them of being “partly responsible for the destruction of 1 million acres of marshlands and also for millions more acres of dying marshland.” By destroying the land, they left New Orleans vulnerable, because the wetlands along the coast are the city’s natural barriers against deadly wind and storm surges. A judge dismissed the lawsuit and claimed that the plaintiffs were being “ambitious.”

On top of that, the report states that “before the hurricane made landfall, the Kochs saw opportunity to profit from a vulnerable population in need of scarce resources, calling it “the right market to restart operations” at their newly-acquired Georgia-Pacific facilities in the region. After the hurricane, Koch Industries immediately went to work taking advantage of the situation, participating in a subsidized federal bond program, and it was even investigated for price gouging during a time of crisis.”

The report also found that the Koch Brothers hindered the area’s recovery by lobbying lawmakers to vote against a bill that put limits on flood insurance. The Kochs’ group Americans for Prosperity sent a letter to lawmakers and urged them to vote against the people suffering from the effects of the storm by opposing The Homeowners Flood Insurance Affordability Act. The bill placed limits on rate increases for insurance premiums. Americans for Prosperity claimed that they weren’t trying to hurt the people who lost everything in the hurricane, because they supported an amendment that would have slowed rate increases. The problem with their defence is that the amendment they supported was tabled before they sent the letter urging lawmakers to vote against the bill.

So, the Kochs not only had a direct role in destroying the wetlands that could have prevented some of the damage, but after the people were under water and struggling to rebuild their lives, they tried to ensure insurance companies could raise their rates. In addition to the facts the report laid out, climate change was also a factor in the amount of damage Katrina caused. The Koch Brothers are the biggest backers of climate change denial in the country and have spent millions of dollars trying to prevent any type of reform from being enacted that would reduce our ecological footprint.

Ten years after Katrina, the Gulf coast still hasn’t fully recovered from the storm. Imagine what would happen if we allowed another Koch-bought politician sit in the Oval Office and govern. Imagine what would happen if another storm like Katrina made landfall – and with volatile weather conditions heightening the intensity of tropical storms, it’s unfortunately a question of when. It is a painful example of how environmental destruction by huge corporations comes back to haunt the working families of America. The need for action on climate change becomes more critical with each day that passes, lest the mistakes of the past repeat themselves on a bigger, more destructive scale.

A Zionist to Head U.S.’s Economic Warfare Division*

A Zionist to Head U.S.’s Economic Warfare Division*

By Mark Anderson

It’s not well known that the United States Treasury Department has what amounts to a war room. Its strategists dole out economic warfare much like the Pentagon’s strategists deploy physical military might around the globe.

On Thursday, September 10, the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs will meet in open session for a hearing on whether to confirm Obama nominee Adam J. Szubin of the District of Columbia as the “general” of that war room—or stated more clinically—as the Treasury’s under secretary for terrorism and financial crimes. The hearing is slated to run from 10 a.m. to noon at 538 Dirksen Senate Office Building.

The Treasury position Szubin is seeking has, over the last 11-12 years, come under pro-Israeli influence, which runs the risk of hardwiring bias against Iran into this top Treasury post for imposing U.S. sanctions against Iran and monitoring the Persian state’s compliance with those sanctions.

That position is within the Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence. According to the Treasury Department, that position

“marshals the department’s intelligence and enforcement functions with the twin aims of safeguarding the financial system against illicit use and combating rogue nations, terrorist facilitators, weapons of mass destruction proliferators, money launderers, drug kingpins and other national security threats.”

The Jewish Telegraph Agency correctly acknowledged, “Szubin . . . would, if confirmed by the U.S. Senate, be the third [consecutive] Jewish undersecretary in the role. . . . He would follow David Cohen, who early this year became deputy director of the CIA, and Stuart Levey, who shaped the office’s role in enforcing Iran sanctions as an undersecretary who straddled the Bush and Obama administrations from 2004-2011.”

Szubin, who’s a Harvard Law School graduate, has been a senior official in the sanctions enforcement regime since 2006, when he was named director of Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) for Treasury. In 2004, at the age of 31, he was the senior legal and policy adviser to Treasury’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence.

Szubin already is cutting his teeth for the new post which Obama nominated him for, as he’s serving as “acting” undersecretary—ever since Cohen’s ascent into the Central Intelligence Agency.

Individuals and organizations on the receiving end of sanctions during Szubin’s former OFAC post include Venezuelan officials and the El Salvadoran gang Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13). Most recently, according to Treasury, “leaders in the terrorist group ‘Hezbollah,’” were targeted involving Szubin at his current post as “acting under secretary,” in cooperation with the Saudis.

In 2006, Hezbollah drove the Israeli military from southern Lebanon in a war that left Israel bloodied and humiliated. Since then the Israeli government has been agitating for war with Hezbollah and has tried repeatedly to assassinate its leaders. In Europe, Hezbollah is considered a Lebanese militia and not a terrorist organization.
