On December 11, 2014, the US House passed a bill repealing the Dodd-Frank requirement that risky derivatives be pushed into big-bank subsidiaries, leaving our deposits and pensions exposed to massive derivatives losses. The bill was vigorously challenged by Senator Elizabeth Warren; but the tide turned when Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorganChase, stepped into the ring. Perhaps what prompted his intervention was the unanticipated $40 drop in the price of oil. As financial blogger Michael Snyder points out, that drop could trigger a derivatives payout that could bankrupt the biggest banks. And if the G20’s new “bail-in” rules are formalized, depositors and pensioners could be on the hook.

Jon Rappoport – Reality Is Not Immortal: Exit From The Matrix – 14 December 2014

jon7One way or another, 99.99999999% of the world’s spiritual systems get around to denying individual power. Eventually, they all proclaim that power is coming from someplace else. It’s so convenient to say so. It’s such a gigantic lie, most people buy it. They love buying it.

Whereas: Reality is an elastic substance pretending to be immortal.

And: Reality is waiting for imagination to revolutionize it down to its core.

Where do people store ideas about their potential—a potential of power that vastly outstrips anything the spiritual systems of Earth have mentioned or speculated about? People store all that knowledge in the place where they believe it belongs: Continue reading

The Russian aircraft in question was 70 kilometers away from the flight path of a passenger jet taking off from Copenhagen, and thus there were “no prerequisites” for collision between the two, Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement. He also denied allegations that the military jet was flying right above southern Sweden, breaching its airspace.

Jon Rappoport – GMO Wars: The Right Of The People To Nullify Fascism – 14 December 2014

jon7Consider the two counties in Oregon (Jackson and Josephine) that banned GMO crops.

Consider the measures in Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island of Hawaii that blocked further development of GMOs and the spraying of toxic pesticides.

They all won.

Then the state government of Oregon, in order to stop the trend, passed a law forbidding counties from unilaterally banning GMOs.

In Hawaii, a federal magistrate struck down the victories in Kauai and the Big Island, on the basis that such matters are controlled by state law. If he has his way, he’ll render the same opinion re Maui. Continue reading

John Ward – Opinion : The Peculiar World In Which Kiruna Stamell Becomes A Heroine – 14 December 2014

JohnWEastenders soap porg Kiruna Stamell sued the Post Office because the chip and pin machines are too high for her to reach. Much as the thought of privatised troughers having their backsides caned is a thrilling thought, Stamell bullied the company into settling out of Court…and they’re now fitting flexible wires in all branches.

When she originally complained instore, staff tried to make steps from cardboard boxes, which she says caused her embarrassment. I find that an incredibly self-absorbed response to an act of kindness. Continue reading
