ZeroHedge – Bankers Are Behind The Wars – 19 April 2014

ZeroHedgeFormer managing director of Goldman Sachs – and head of the international analytics group at Bear Stearns in London (Nomi Prins) –  notes:

Throughout the century that I examined, which began with the Panic of 1907 … what I found by accessing the archives of each president is that through many events and periods, particular bankers were in constant communication [with the White House] — not just about financial and economic policy, and by extension trade policy, but also about aspects of World War I, or World War II, or the Cold War, in terms of the expansion that America was undergoing as a superpower in the world, politically, buoyed by the financial expansion of the banking community.

John Ward – Me And Software Sales Gangsterism: A Brief Update – 19 April 2014


I was going to write a piece about David Cameron this morning, but I’d got halfway through preparing another piece requiring a photo download from my camera-phone when the laptop got uppity.

Marlene Swetlishoff – Archangel Gabriel – 19 April 2014

marlene1-1Beloved Ones,

Let us have discourse on the quality of love that we call poise. This quality is essential in the inner workings of each soul. It manifests from within the person who has an unshakable sense of certainty and self-confidence in their own value and ability. This quality is also developed throughout one’s lifetime and each decision rightly made add to the strength of this quality in one’s everyday existence. When a person follows the guidance found within their heart and gives credence to that still small voice within, they develop mastery over each challenge or obstacle that may arise and gain mastery of self, and as a positive consequence. The inherent quality of poise, dignity and composure in their demeanour is the result. People who have this quality of love within them are self possessed, have dignity of manner and are always graceful and self assured. Because of their balance, direction and readiness, they inspire confidence in those with whom they interact and others find them attractive. Continue reading

Ann Albers – Messages From Ann And The Angels – 19 April 2014


My dear friends, we love you so very much.

In all things you have choice, and while you might not see the choices in front of you so clearly, they are nonetheless there. Even if you see no options in the external world, you always have the ability to choose how you will respond to life. You have the ability to choose how you will respond to other human beings. And you have the ability to choose how you will respond to you very own thoughts and feelings. So in essence you are never ever trapped in a “bad” situation because you can choose to respond with love. And in so doing, you change your vibration and therefore what you will attract in the very next moment. It only takes a second of stepping into a more loving space to change your entire future.

Washington negotiates duplicitously. Promises made are systematically broken. Don’t expect this time to be different.

Kiev’s illegitimate putschists didn’t surprise. They violated agreement terms. They did so straightaway. They acted with full US support. More on this below. Continue reading
