ZeroHedge – The Death Of The Petrodollar Was Finally Noticed – 8 February 2015

ZeroHedgeThree months ago, we wrote “How The Petrodollar Quietly Died, And Nobody Noticed“, in which we explained in painful detail why far from the simple macroeconomic dogma which immediately prompted the macro tourists to scream that “oil prices dropping are good for US consumers“, the collapse in the price of crude is not only a disaster for oil exporting nations – one which will lead to a series of violent “Arab Springs” across the oil-producing developed world – but far more importantly, have a massive impact on capital markets as a result of the plunge in the most financialized commodity in history.

Steve Lendman – Munich’s March To War With Russia – 8 February 2015

StevelendmanThis year’s Munich Security Conference features a shocking but unsurprising drumbeat of anti-Russian hate-mongering.

RT International called proceedings a Russian “hate fest.” An outrageous display of US-led Western cynicism, Russia-bashing, and Big Lies heading things toward East/West confrontation.
Vice President Joe Biden shames the office he holds. He’s a caricature of a high US official and then some.
“Europe is the cornerstone of US engagement around the world,” he said. Code language for US-dominated NATO global aggression.
Russia bashing followed. Biden lied claiming Moscow aims “to redraw the map of Europe by force.” Seeks “to divide Ukraine between east and west.”

NaturalNews – Mike Adams – National Media Wages Psychological Terror Campaign Against Americans To Set Stage For Government Destruction Of Medical Choice – 8 February 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Following the staged terror attacks of 9/11, the national media whipped up the public’s anger and hatred against “terrorists” with a relentless psychological campaign of “news terror” against American citizens. This anger and hatred, of course, was necessary to garner public support for passage of the Patriot Act, arguably the most freedom-crushing piece of legislation ever signed into law in America.

It is under the Patriot Act that animal rights activists are now arrested and charged as “domestic terrorists.” It’s the Patriot Act that gave the FBI and NSA the authority to surveil all Americans’ phone calls, emails and web surfing behavior. The Patriot Act was claimed to be a weapon of law enforcement against evil terrorists, but just as many of us warned would happen, it was very quickly turned against the American people who are its main target today.

“Internet freedom” activists are downvoting the satirical video below into oblivion. It seems they’ve bought the line that the FCC will actually protect a free and open Internet. It’d be funny if it wasn’t so sad.

ZeroHedge – Greece Gambles On “Catastrophic Armageddon” For Europe, Warns It “Only Has Weeks Of Cash Left” – 8 February 2015

ZeroHedgeOne of the bigger problems facing the new, upstart Greek government, which has set before itself the lofty goal of overturning 6 years of oppressive European policies and countless generations of Greek cronyism, corruption and tax-evasion is not so much the concern about deposit outflows and bank runs – even though it most certainly will be in the next few days unless the Tsipras government finds some resolution to the dramatic standoff with Merkel and the ECB – but something far more trivial: running out of money.

Steve Lendman – Obama’s New National Security Strategy: Ugly Business As Usual – 8 February 2015

StevelendmanPeriodic National Security Strategy (NSS) documents reveal Washington’s dark side. Updated versions reflect old wine in new bottles.

Including permanent wars on humanity. Against one invented enemy after another. Waging what the late Gore Vidal called “perpetual war for perpetual peace.”
Making the world safe for monied interests. At the expense of popular ones. At the cost of millions of lives and appalling human misery.
Endless US direct and proxy wars rage against multiple countries. New conflicts await to be launched.
The business of America is war. Destroying humanity one country at a time or in multiples. Wealth, power and dominance alone matter.

NaturalNews – Jonathan Benson – Merck Senior Management Tried To Pay Off Its Own Vaccine Scientists To Remain Silent About Scientific Fraud – 8 February 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) As the corporate media desperately attempts to dupe as many people as possible into getting MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella) vaccines for the protection of “the children,” uncovered court documents revealing major vaccine fraud at Merck & Co., the multinational drug company that produces MMR vaccines for the U.S. market, are only getting the attention they deserve from the alternative media.

Back in 2010, two former Merck scientists, repulsed by what they saw taking place at the highest levels of the company, filed a False Claims Act in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The filing accuses Merck of lying about the safety and effectiveness of MMR vaccines, tampering with study data, defrauding the U.S. government and various other high-level crimes. Continue reading
