Steve Lendman – Israel’s Secret Nuclear Program – 31 January 2014

StevelendmanIt’s an open secret. It’s been known for years. Media scoundrels suppress it. They pretend none exists.
It’s real. It’s menacing. Imagine ignoring what threatens humanity. Imagine pretending Iran’s peaceful nuclear program does so. Imagine risking regional or global war by doing it.
London’s Guardian is an establishment broadsheet. It’s usually conformist. Once in a while it’s not.
It wrote many times about Edward’s Snowden’s revelations. It told readers what they need to know. On January 15, it headlined “The Truth about Israel’s secret nuclear arsenal.”

WakingTimes – Christina Sarich – HAARP In Action And Its True Purpose – 31 January 2014



(Lucas: Not new info but for those not knowing about it a good start to find your directions.)

The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is not an imagined conspiracy theory. The resounding ‘sonic boom’ and strange flashing lights of a HAARP ‘experiment’ have been observed by countless citizens. So is it just a benign technology designed to enhance the ionosphere, as our government has claimed, or is it up to other abominable tasks?

We are told that HAARP’s powerful antennae are just creating ‘controlled local modifications of the ionosphere’, but there is surely more than that going on. The theories about what HAARP really does abound, and some will make you think long and hard before dismissing them, no matter how far out they seem.

Judith Dagley – New Aquarius Super Moon- A Tipping Point! – 31 January 2014

judithNot only are we in the innovative energies of our new moon, but numerologically, today is also a master number–11, in this case, which is a doorway into the NEW. Personally, I am feeling this combination very powerfully as a “tipping point,” a day when old meets NEW, and that it will be the conscious choices I make over this weekend  that will determine which way I “tip.”

Yep, if this resonates with the way you are also feeling the new moon energy– this is responsibility “time!”  You are the Sovereign Authority over your own creations. What YOU say, GOES. Nothing can interfere with the frequencies of your choices. Not NOW, not ever. At last, you have the freedom to create out of Love, and so live in Love! How wonderful is that?!! Continue reading

ZeroHedge – India’s Central Bank Governor: “International Monetary Cooperation Has Broken Down” – 31 January 2014

ZeroHedgeIndia’s recently crowned central bank head (and predecessor of the IMF’s Nostradamal Olivier Blanchard), Raghuram Rajan, has not had it easy since taking over India’s printer: with inflation through the roof, and only so much scapegoating of gold as the root of all of India’s evils, Rajan announced an unexpected 50 bps interest rate hike two days ago in an attempt to preempt the massive EM capital flight that has roundhoused Turkey, South Africa, Hungary, Argentina and most other current account deficit emerging markets. Whether he succeeds in keeping India away from the EM maelstrom will be unveiled in the coming days, although if last summer is any indication, the INR has a long way to fall.

Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Spain Misses Watered-Down Budget Deficit Targets Yet Again – 31 January 2014

MishMikeShedlockWhen you are about to miss budget targets, the easy thing to do is lower the bar, again and again until you can hit them. Spain did just that, and still missed.

Via translation from Libre Mercaado, please consider Spain Misses Budget Deficit Target for 2013.

Treasury announced a deficit of 5.44% of GDP in November, but official data elevate that number to 5.96%. Taking a December shortfall estimate into consideration, the deficit estimate is around 6.9% for 2013. Continue reading

IrishExaminer – (UK) Fraud Office Seeks £19M For ‘Big’ Cases – 31 January 2014

Irish Examiner

The UK Serious Fraud Office sought an extra £19m (€23m) from the government to pay for “blockbuster” cases including a probe into manipulation of benchmark interest rates.

By Suzi Ring

Quote: The SFO needs the almost 60% increase in funding to “meet an urgent cash requirement on existing services,” according to a statement from the attorney general’s office. The money would go to the agency’s probes on Libor, Rolls-Royce Holdings and Barclays, as well as potential litigation costs incurred over a collapsed case involving property tycoons Robert and Vincent Tchenguiz.
