Merkel’s Mirage: ‘This New Old Idea Of A Schengen Net Is Basically A Step Back’ – 17 February 2014

RT logoThe idea of the internet with borders means that national states will be able to put much more mass surveillance on their own people, Bruno Kramm from the Pirate Party told RT.

RT: What kind of future do you see for this proposal of Angela Merkel to create a pan-European communications network that would prevent private data from leaking across the Atlantic?

Bruno Kramm: Actually, for this proposal I don’t see any future. For me it’s just another symbol of the way how Chancellor Merkel is doing her politics. It’s symbolism, nothing else, especially when it comes to net politics, and when we look into the whole NSA affair, what happened recently about the mass surveillance, there had been no measurements at all, and no actions at all, and now she comes up with this new old idea of a Schengen net, what is basically a step back and nobody wants that and this will definitely not happen.

Iranian Bank Sues UK Govt $4 Billion For Sanctions – 17 February 2014

RT logoThe biggest private bank in Iran is suing the UK government for $4 billion, according to a claim filed in London’s high court. The Brits imposed sanctions on the bank over alleged links to Iran’s controversial nuclear program.

Bank Mellat has asked for compensation over the impact of the sanctions, which it has deemed a “significant pecuniary loss” and has caused substantial reputational damage, reads the document seen by Reuters on Monday.

The bank alleges that the UK government has also been successful in encouraging other authorities to place their own sanctions on the bank, prompting a decline in banking relationships and the loss of both profitable business and customers. The bank lost international business, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Waking Times

New research in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology shows that child doctor appointments for annual exams and vaccinations are associated with an increased risk of flu-like illnesses in children and family members within two weeks of the visit. This risk translates to more than 700,000 potentially avoidable illnesses each year, costing more than $490 million annually and completely ignoring nutritional deficiencies.

ActivistPost – Brandon Turbeville – Local Police Train With Special Forces To Raid Farm Houses, Conduct Domestic Raids – 17 February 2014

Logo_activistpost-com(Lucas : Yep, still it is a bit of fear mongering Brandon! Training objectives across different governmental departments like emergy services, military, FBI, FEMA, FDA, etc, is done for some time…is there a reason to suggest that will change. The objective though is still the same…US. It is though very good to see we need to get away from the Government and all its agencies and departments as they work for Corporate USA not for the people….that should be the message not the fear mongering only!)

On January 20, I wrote an article entitled “Upcoming Military Drill Off Limits To Reporters,” in which I reported on the announcement that South Carolina’s Richland County Sheriff’s Office would be engaged in joint training exercises with unidentified units from Ft. Bragg.

The official Richland County Sheriff’s Department’s press release stated that “Citizens may see military and departmental vehicles traveling in and around rural and metropolitan areas and may hear ordinance being set off or fired which will be simulated/ blanks and controlled by trained personnel.”

Dana Mrkich – Bye Bye Masculine On Steroids – 17 February 2014

Dana Colour Pic NewLately, a lot of us have been feeling a strong re-emergence of the Divine Feminine both within us and around us. So many qualities that have for so long been seen as weak (expressing our emotions, feeling compassion and empathy for others), less valuable (creative artists and traditional ‘feminine’ roles like teachers and nurses (not) being paid what they deserve) and disregarded (our intuition as a source of knowledge) are now coming to the surface from the spaces that they have been hiding in and pushed down into.  Continue reading

ZeroHedge – Spoos Rise To Within Inches Of All Time High As Overnight Bad News Is Respun As Great News By Levitation Algos – 17 February 2014

ZeroHedgeAfter tumbling as low as the 101.30 level overnight on atrocious GDP data, it was the same atrocious GDP data that slowly became the spin needed to push the USDJPY higher as the market became convinced that like everywhere else, bad news is great news and a relapse in the Japanese economy simply means more QE is coming from the BOJ despite the numerous articles here, and elsewhere, explaining why this very well may not be the case. Furthermore, as we noted last night, comments by the chairman of the GPIF panel Takatoshi Ito that the largest Japanese bond pension fund should cut its bond holdings to 40% were used as further “support” to weaken the Yen, and what was completely ignored was the rebuttal by the very head of the GPIF who told the FT that demands were unfair on an institution that has been functionally independent from government since 2006. The FSA “should be doing what they are supposed to be doing, without asking too much from us,” he said, adding that the calls for trillions of yen of bond sales from panel chairman Takatoshi Ito showed he “lacks understanding of the practical issues of this portfolio.” What he understands, however, is that in the failing Japanese mega ponzi scheme, every lie to prop up support in its fading stock market is now critical as all it would take for the second reign of Abe to end is another 10% drop in the Nikkei 225.
