Dear America: Better Read the Fine Print on Your Credit Card Statement*

Dear America: Better Read the Fine Print on Your Credit Card Statement*

You know those disclosures on your credit card statements? That it will take 27 years to pay off your balance if you only make the minimum payment each month, and so on?

You might not be aware of it, but America’s “credit card”–our national debt–comes with its own disclosure statement:

Here’s a chart of America’s credit card: clearly, any credit line expanding this fast will bankrupt the borrower, regardless of their income.

I often refer to debt serfdom, the servitude debt enforces on borrowers. The mechanism of this servitude is interest, and today I turn to two knowledgeable correspondents for explanations of the consequences of interest.

Correspondent D.L.J. explains how debt/interest is the underlying engine of rising income/wealth disparity:

Here is a table of the growth rate of the GDP.

If we use $18 trillion as the approximate GDP and a growth rate of, say, 3.5%, the total of goods and services would increase one year to the next by about $600 billion.

Meanwhile, referencing the Grandfather national debt chart with the USDebtClock data, the annual interest bill is $3 trillion.

In other words, those receiving interest are getting 5 times more than the increase in gross economic activity.

Using your oft-referenced Pareto Principle, about 80% of the population are net payers of interest while the other 20% are net receivers of interest.

Also, keep in mind that one does not have to have an outstanding loan to be a net payer of interest. Whenever one buys a product that any part of its production was involving the cost of interest, the final product price included that interest cost. The purchase of that product had the interest cost paid by the purchaser.

Again using the Pareto concept, of the 20% who receive net interest, it can be further divided 80/20 to imply that 4% receive most (64%?) of the interest. This very fact can explain why/how the system (as it stands) produces a widening between the haves and the so-called ‘have nots’.

Longtime correspondent Harun I. explains that the serfdom imposed by debt and interest is not merely financial servitude–it is political serfdom as well:

As both of us have stated, you can create all of the money you want, however, production of real things cannot be accomplished with a keystroke.

Then there is the issue of liberty. Each Federal Reserve Note is a liability of the Fed and gives the bearer the right but not the obligation to purchase — whatever the Fed deems appropriate. How much one can purchase keeps changing base on a theory-driven experiment that has never worked. Since the Fed is nothing more than an agent of the Central State, the ability to control what the wages of its workers will purchase, is a dangerous power for any government.

If a Federal Reserve Note is a liability of the central bank, then what is the asset? The only possible answer is the nations productivity. So, in essence, an agent of the government, the central bank, most of which are privately owned (ownership is cloaked in secrecy) owns the entire productive output of free and democratic nation-states.

People who speak of liberty and democracy in such a system only delude themselves.

Then there is the solution, default. That only resolves the books, the liability of human needs remain. Bankruptcy does not resolve the residue of social misery and suffering left behind for the masses who became dependent on lofty promises (debt). These promises (debts) were based on theories that have reappeared throughout human history under different guises but have never worked.

More debt will not resolve debt. The individual’s liberty is nonexistent if he does not own his labor. A people should consider carefully the viability (arithmetical consequences) of borrowing, at interest, to consume their own production. The asset of our labor cannot simultaneously be a liability we owe to ourselves at interest.

Thank you, D.L.J. and Harun. What is the alternative to the present system of debt serfdom and rising inequality? There is none in our financialized, Neofeudal-Neocolonial State-Cartel Rentier Economy that creates and distributes credit-money at the top of the wealth-power pyramid.

As Harun noted in another email, Governments cannot reduce their debt or deficits and central banks cannot taper. Equally, they cannot perpetually borrow exponentially more. This one last bubble cannot end (but it must).

What will replace the current system after it self-destructs? That’s the question, and my answer is laid out in my book A Radically Beneficial World: a radically decentralized, transparent, opt-in system of creating money at the bottom of the wealth-power pyramid rather than at its apex.

U.S. Bans Most Electronic Devices on Flights from 8 Muslim Countries*

They are not the same nations targeted in the failed “Muslim Ban.”

By Kenrya Rankin

Less than a week after two federal courts blocked the Trump Administration’s second attempt at restricting entry to the United States for the nationals of six predominately Muslim countries, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a mandate that regulates the travel of people from another set of mostly Muslim countries.

As of today (March 21), people flying into the U.S. on direct flights from 10 airports in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates must check electronic devices larger than a phone—including tablets, laptops, e-readers, cameras, gaming devices and portable DVD players—before boarding. Travelers will still be allowed to carry smartphones and essential medical devices on board. The eight countries are different from the ones targeted in the “Muslim Ban.”

Per CNN, the impacted airlines are Egyptair, Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways, Kuwait Airways, Qatar Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Royal Jordanian Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines and Turkish Airlines. U.S. officials said that no U.S. carriers are included in the indefinite ban because they do not fly directly to the States from the impacted airports. The carriers have 96 hours to comply, or they risk losing permission from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly into the country. The rule will be “reviewed” on October 14.

CNN reports that officials say there is no specific terrorist plot that they are trying to thwart, but that: “the move is partly based on intelligence that they believe indicates Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is close to being able to hide explosives with little or no metal content in electronic devices in order to target commercial aircraft.”

Reuters reports that on a press conference call, DHS spokesperson Gillian Christensen said the agency “did not target specific nations. We relied upon evaluated intelligence to determine which airports were affected.”

U.K. joins U.S. electronics ban on flights from several Middle East, African countries

U.K joined the U.S large electronics ban on some flights from Middle East and African countries. The U,K has announced a cabin baggage ban on laptops on passenger flights from six Middle East and North African countries.

According to a statement issued by the U.K government:

Phones, laptops and tablets larger than 16.0cm x 9.3cm x 1.5cm not allowed in the cabin on flights to the U.K. from Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Tunisia.

KTG understands that the U.K. ban will affect also the British Airways.

The U.K. restrictions, which also apply to tablets, DVD players, portable game consoles and phones over certain size, come after a similar U.S. Department of Homeland Security ban.

Passengers will not be able to fly from these countries with phones, laptops, tablets larger than 16cm in length, 9.3cm width & 1.5cm depth.

Flights on nine airlines from 10 airports in eight Muslim-majority countries are subject to the U.S. move.

U.S. officials said bombs could be hidden in a series of devices.

The ban affects large electronic devices including laptops, tablets and DVD players. They would not be permitted in aircraft cabins but would be allowed in checked baggage.

Phones are exempt from the U.S. restrictions.

Passengers on some 50 flights a day from some of the busiest hubs in the Middle East, Turkey and North Africa would be required to follow the new U.S. rules.

The airlines affected by the ban are:

Royal Jordanian, Egypt Air, Turkish Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Kuwait Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Qatar Airways, Emirates and Etihad Airways.

They have been given 96 hours, beginning at 07:00 GMT on Tuesday, to ban devices bigger than a mobile phone or smartphone from cabins, US officials said, adding that the ban had no end date.

According to BBC, the U.K. announcement and would affect direct flights from several Middle East cities. The BBC home affairs correspondent said that  the move was “obviously part of co-ordinated action with the U.S.”.

The Department of Homeland Security said extremists were seeking “innovative methods” to bring down jets.

The attempted downing of an airliner in Somalia last year was linked to a laptop device, and it appears the security precautions are an attempt to stop similar incidents.

Turkey seeks reversal of laptop ban

The Turkish government has said the U.S. ban is wrong and should be reversed.

Turkey said Tuesday it would ask the United States to reverse a ban on electronic devices larger than mobile phones in the cabin of flights from 10 airports in Turkey, the Middle East and North Africa.

“We particularly emphasise how this will not benefit the passenger and that reverse steps or a softening should be adopted,” Transport Minister Ahmet Arslan told reporters, saying the decision was not right for Turkey or the US.

Airlines hit by the ban include flag-carrier Turkish Airlines, which has the highest foreign sales of any Turkish company. The airline’s profits have already been hit by a slew of terror attacks in Turkey in 2016.

Arslan said Turkish officials were speaking to their relevant American counterparts regarding the ban, which applies to direct flights to the US.

The minister said he hoped there would be a “positive” outcome from the talks, which began Monday.

“Annually, 80 million flights take off from Istanbul and in my opinion, people should not confuse it” with less high-profile destinations, Arslan added.

“In that sense, we already take all kinds of security measures.”

Arslan said that passengers head to the U.S. for many reasons including developing bilateral trade, adding that the ruling could negatively affect travellers’ comfort.

Of course, many now wonder why the ban affects few selected countries and airlines and it is not global.

Experts say the new electronics ban seem illogical and at odds with basic computer science.

The ban affects flight to US and UK not the other way around.

As if a terrorist would not think to fly X airline from a high risk country to an A city, buy a laptop there and catch a flight to the high security countries.

The economic impact on the travel business will be immense. Sounds rather like an airlines war, imho.

Standing Rock Applauds Netherlands-based Bank’s Move to Offload DAPL Debt*

Standing Rock Applauds Netherlands-based Bank’s Move to Offload DAPL Debt*

A major bank financing the Dakota Access Pipeline has announced on Monday it has sold off its share of loan debt for the controversial pipeline.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II applauded the move by the Netherlands-based ING, a global financial institution based in Amsterdam with $120 million of DAPL debt. ING is the first bank to offload DAPL debt.

In a meeting on 10 February, ING shared its willingness to either continue trying to positively influence the course of the project, or to distance itself by selling its stake in the loan. In the meeting we indicated we would appreciate ING selling its loan in the project, after which ING continued its sale process. ING has now signed an agreement to sell the loan.

“We are heartened that ING has made the conscience decision to remove itself from a project that tramples on the rights of sovereign nations,” Archambault said.

ING was one of 17 syndicate banks financing DAPL, led by Citibank for a total of $2.5 billion in credit. ING had previously sold all shares it had in the DAPL parent companies.

Protests against the routing of DAPL have continued. Investors opposed to DAPL issued a statement to the banking syndicate on 16 February that the pipeline will escalate conflict and unrest as well as potentially contaminate the water supply for the Tribe and 17 million Americans downstream of the project.

The remaining banks included in the DAPL syndicate besides Citibank and Wells Fargo are Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Bayern, BBVA, BNP Paribas, Credit Agricole, ICBC, Intesa Sanpaolo, Mizuho Bank, Natixis, Societe Generale, SMBC, DNB, SunTrust Bank and TD Securities.

Investors opposed to the project include California’s public employee pension fund, CalPERS ($300 billion pension fund); New York City teacher and firefighter pensions; dozens of religious organizations and asset management firms. They have a combined $653 billion in managed assets, according to their statement.

International and national support for the Tribe have mounted continued pressure for other banks to pullout of DAPL. The City of Seattle cut ties with Wells Fargo and Bill de Blasio, the mayor of New York, has pledged support for a boycott.

President Donald Trump, who may still have financial ties to Energy Transfer, ordered expedited review of the project. The Army Corps of Engineers granted the easement shortly thereafter. The Tribe continues to challenge the permits in court.

Inside the Education System: ‘I was taught really how to con the community’*

Inside the Education System: ‘I was taught really how to con the community’*

By Isaac Davis

Charlotte Iserbyt has a long history of work with the U.S. Department of Education as a former policy advisor during the Reagan administration, as well as having worked for local school districts. In her seminal book, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, she tells the story of how her interest in educating children was overshadowed by the dark truth of the modern education system, and the top-down plan to overhaul education to achieve statist aims.

As the reality that education is used against us sinks in for everyday Americans, her work becomes ever more valuable, and of the many startling truths she has revealed, one fact stands out as particularly relevant to today’s environment, where the nanny state increasingly usurps authority over individual and family decisions, turning us into de facto agents of state control.

Speaking in an interview, Iserbyt explains how school system functionaries are trained to identify resistors, the parents among us whom would dare to object to the unreasonable changes in schools and educational programs.

‘I was trained to identify the resistors. The resistors to the sex-ed, drug-ed, alcohol-ed, suicide-ed, death-ed, those sgood, smart Americans who realize that anything that education hanging off the end of it is probably not what they’re looking for. I was trained to identify those good people, and to go up against them, and actually to go and try to get them to join us through the group process system. Make them feel important, get them on a committee… and that just blew my mind.” ~Charlotte Iserbyt

How does the school system manage to force programs onto local districts which would never want such programs? How do they con people into accepting new ideas for education that really don’t make sense for their communities?

The answer is that the system actually trains members of the school system to identify, target, and recruit the right people in a community, so that others will play follow-the-leader with people whom they trust.

“Not only was I trained to identify the resistors, I was trained to go to the important people, high profile, highly thought of people in the community, with the Rotary, Chamber of Commerce Garden Club, you name it. The different groups in our towns. Go to them and convince them of the importance of these new programs… and get them on your side, because when you can get the leadership in a community to go along with it, then the newspaper comes in and says, a committee’s been set up with the head of the Rotary, and this and that, and they’re all getting behind this task force to discuss whether we’re going to have a new sex education program. And then, when Mary Jones, who would ordinarily think, why would we want to have a sex education program when we don’t have any problems with kids having sex or anything… she reads that her best friend who’s the head of the Garden Club is on this committee… it must be OK.” ~Charlotte Iserbyt

Iserbyt talks briefly about the training manual for district employees which teaches them to be good agents of the state. Written by Professor Ronald Havelock, Innovations in Education: A Change Agent’s Guide is the manual for turning the American school system into a Stasi-like program of group think and mindless acquiescence. Yes, there really is a manual which teaches educators how to monitor and interdict parents who wish to have a say in how their children are educated, and according to Iserbyt, it is quite revolting, and very effective.

The end result of a government program which targets and neutralizes dissenters and resistors is nation-wide conformity with educational objectives which serve the interest of the corporate state while failing children and families.

If it seems like Evil is pervading the world, with “Endless Wars” of aggression, GMOs, paedophile
slavery rings, fluoridated water, mandated vaccines, chemtrails and False Flags, it is all connected and part of a Satanic religion practiced by the controlling elite, according to Ron Johnson, publisher of STFNews (for Stranger than Fiction).

He says that the suspicions of “conspiracy theorists”, like him have now been validated by the
revelations of WikiLeaks, etc.

Ron Johnson joins Sean Kerrigan of the SGTReport to elaborate.

‘Grand Canyon’s Lost City of Sipapu

‘Grand Canyon’s Lost City of Sipapu

From Alexandra Bruce

This film, featuring publisher-explorer, David Hatcher Childress is about an expedition in search of the exact location of the original Sipapu, where the current Adamic race of man is said to have emerged from a hole in the ground, following a major global flood cataclysm, which had destroyed most life on Earth, according to legends of the Pueblo peoples of the American
Southwest. These tribes include the Hopi, Keres, Towa and Zuñi.

This was not the first time that the gods had destroyed their creation, according to the Puebloans, whose traditional beliefs call the current cycle we’re in now the ‘Fourth World’.

The Maya World Age doctrine, from the Guatemala Highlands and Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula has significant commonalities with those of many other indigenous groups throughout the Americas most notably, with the Puebloans, except that the Maya believe we’re currently in the ‘Sixth World’, as expressed in their holy scripture, the Popol Vuh and on stelae found at various Maya temple complexes.
World Age doctrines are pervasive in the ancient world and it is also part of the modern practices of Hinduism and Buddhism, in their traditional Yuga system of World Ages. According Hindus, we are currently in the middle of a Dark Age called the Kali Yuga or the Age of Vice. (It would be hard to argue against this).

 

What’s interesting is that the Kali Yuga began in 3102 BC, as correlated to the Gregorian calendar. This date may commemorate the “flood of Manu” of the Hindu Puranas, which is shockingly similar to the Biblical story of Noah. Manu was the Hindu equivalent of Noah, who is said to have rescued the ancestors of all life forms alive on Earth today. Atra-Hasis was the Akkadian hero of a similar global flood myth, one of three deluge stories, which have come down to us from Babylonia.
Also interesting is that the last epoch of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, which famously ended on December 21, 2012 began in 3114 BC, or 12 years before the beginning of Kali Yuga (correlated to the Gregorian calendar).
When I was researching this topic for this book I wrote, I was shocked to discover that Ancient Greek mythology also had a tradition of the “Five Ages of Man”, sharing some stunningly specific details to those found in the Popol Vuh and in the ancient Vedic Yuga system, with its own Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.
In the West, this basic concept of cyclical ages stealthily survives, in the form of “Western Astrology” (actually based on an ancient Babylonian system). Even those who don’t know much about astrology have probably heard that we’re moving out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius. The World Age doctrine of Western astrology is based on the Precession of the Equinoxes. It is therefore cyclical, with each sign of the zodiac dominating the night sky for just over 2,000 years, adding up to a full round of 26,000 years and then starting over again. People who believe in astrology believe that the attendant qualities or “personality traits” of each sign affect the character of society during the 2,000+ years that each sign “rules” the sky.
The main problem with astrology is there is no general agreement about when Pisces ends and Aquarius begins. I’ve read that the Age of Aquarius began six hundred years ago and elsewhere that it doesn’t start for another six hundred years, which averages out to now!

A lot of things happened around this 300-year period around 3000 BC:- 3100 BC, The Indus Valley Civilization constructed the first advanced system of drainage.

Menes unified the Upper and Lower Kingdoms of Ancient Egypt and a new capital was erected at Memphis.

Umm al Binni lake in the Al Amarah region of Iraq may be an impact crater, as suggested by satellite imagery, (Master 2001, 2002). The age of the crater is estimated to be 5,000 years old. Back then, the region was under the Persian Gulf at a depth of approximately 10m (Larsen and Evans 1978: 237). The alleged Umm al Binni impact could be responsible for producing the energy equivalent to thousands of Hiroshima-sized bombs and the impact-induced tsunamis would have devastated coastal Sumerian cities. This may provide an alternate origin of the 2.6m sediment layer discovered during an excavation of the Sumerian city of Ur by Leonard Wooley in 1954. Descriptive passages in The Epic of Gilgamesh may describe such an impact and tsunami,
suggesting a link to the Sumerian Deluge (Matthews 2001; Britt 2001).

Neolithic period ends, Aegean Bronze Age starts, Minoan civilization starts, Troy is founded. Stonehenge construction begins. In its first version, it consists of a circular ditch and bank,
with 56 wooden posts.
– 2807 BC, A very large-scale comet or meteorite impact event in the southern Indian ocean caused enormous mega-tsunamis. It is theorized that the legends of the Great Flood in the Bible,
the Maya Popol Vuh, the Hindu Puranic story of Manu, the story of Deucalion in Greek mythology and the story of Utnapishtim in the Epic of Gilgamesh may be associated with this event, which created the 18-mile wide Burckle Crater, under 12,500 feet of ocean, off
the coast of present-day Madagascar.
