Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s carefully constructed house of cards comes crashing down

By Michael Den Tandt, Postmedia News October 23, 2013

Mike Duffy’s lawyer says the senator was a victim of the Conservatives’ effort to hide a political embarrassment. Donald Bayne says Duffy was threatened with being kicked out of the Senate if he didn’t agree to the PMO’s plans.

So, that’s it then: The Senate expense scandal is now a mortal threat to Prime Minister Stephen Harper‘s career, and the future electoral prospects of his Conservative government.  And all it took, astonishingly, was two of the “accused,” Sen. Mike Duffy and Sen. Patrick Brazeau, standing up in the Red Chamber and telling, just for a few minutes apiece, their side of the story.

ZeroHedge – Tyler Durden – Italian Bank Stocks Tumble On Draghi Threat He “Won’t Hesitate To Fail Banks”

ZeroHedgeAcross the board, we are seeing European bank stocks (most notably Italian) trading halted. The 5-7% plunge in prices – just when everyone is proclaiming victory in Europe – reflects an apparent concern that the tougher-than-expected European bank stress-tests will expose the Italian banks for the bloated sovereign debt issuance soaks that they have become. As Draghi himself noted, in a desparate plea to maintain some credibility “banks do need to fail” to prove the credibility of the exercise, adding “if they do have to fail, they have to fail. There’s no question about that.”. Spain is also under pressure and it would appear the “smart”money that chose to catch some knives in Greek banks may just lose more than one finger… Continue reading

Jon Rappoport – How The Matrix Deals With Power – 23 October 2013

jon7I’ve been asked to reprint this piece.

Here it is a with a new brief introduction.

Most people use memory to explain why they’re living the lives they have. They arrange memories as if they’re symbols, and the sum is: this is the life I have; no other.

If you could somehow take away all those memories and insert a whole new synthetic raft, people would arrange those to come to the same conclusion. And the same life. Continue reading

A new (free) smartphone app lets you scan products at the store to see if they’re made by companies you support or abhor – including corporate family trees to see if they eventually lead to the Koch Brothers – and then act accordingly. With a wide array of user-created campaigns to demand GMO labelling, cut funding ties to ALEC, protect the bees, boycott chocolate made by child slaves, demand GMO labelling and several other anti-Monsanto campaigns.
