ZeroHedge – None Dare Call It Fraud – Its Just A “Savings Glut” – 12 April 2015

ZeroHedgeSubmitted by David Stockman via Contra Corner blog,

They were jawing again this morning about the low “natural rate” of interest on bubble vision, implying that the workers of the world have succumbed to an atavistic fit of wild-eyed thrift. Gosh, the world is so inundated in a savings glut, averred Wall Street economist Ed McKeon, that the interest rate would be near zero—–even without the concerted action of the central banks.

NaturalNews – J.D. Heyes – Congressman Resigns After Being Called Out Dor Defrauding Taxpayers, But Will Still Keep $3.3M In Campaign Funds And government Pension – 12 April 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) Even when Americans are able to force corrupt politicians from office, it often doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things because their crimes do pay – and pay well.

Disgraced Rep. Aaron Schock, R-Illinois, is being forced to resign from Congress at the end of March. But he still controls $3.3 million in political funds (previous contributions) and he will also be eligible for a federal pension when he turns 62 – that is, if he is not convicted of committing crimes while serving in the U.S. House.

As reported by the Chicago Sun-Times, Schock told House leadership and constituents that he would step down March 31 following “a series of disclosures about his spending taxpayer and government funds on his real estate dealings.” Continue reading

Steve Lendman – Iran: The Leading Proponent for a Nuclear Weapons-Free World – 12 April 2015

StevelendmanAs long as these weapons exist, humanity’s survival remains up for grabs. Sooner or later they’ll be used. Armageddon may follow.

The world’s entire nuclear weapons stockpile must be eliminated to prevent it. The consequences otherwise are too potentially catastrophic to ignore.

Albert Einstein deplored nuclear weapons. “I have always condemned the use of the atomic bomb against Japan,” he said.

Five months before his November 1954 death, he stressed:

“I made one great mistake in my life…when I signed the letter to President Roosevelt recommending that atom bombs be made…” Continue reading

ActivistPost – The U.S. Congress Is “Out to Lunch” About Vaccine Science—Here’s Proof – 12 April 2015

If ever there were a body of numbskulls taking in the “cool aid” of corporate largess, lobbyists and consensus science, the U.S. Congress, apparently, fits that bill when it comes to the hard-core facts regarding toxic ingredients in vaccines along with the so-called ‘science of vaccines’ and the vested-interest roles they have played in modern life.

ZeroHedge – Mass Whale Beaching Re-Ignites Quake Fears Among Japanese – 12 April 2015

ZeroHedgeSix days prior to Japan’s devastating 2011 undersea earthquake that killed over 18,000 people, around 50 melon-headed whales – a species that is a member of the dolphin family – beached themselves on Japan’s beaches. Now, 4 years later, and despite a lack of scientific evidence linking the two events, many Japanese took to social media in fear as the mass beaching of over 150 melon-headed whales on Japan’s shores has fueled fears of a repeat of the monster quake, which unleashed a towering tsunami and triggered a nuclear disaster.

The mainstream media and their experts are finally openly admitting that radiation from the crippled nuclear reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, the initial meltdown of which was equivalent to 168 of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima during World War II, has reached North American shores, but don’t worry.

NaturalNews – J.D. Heyes – No Longer A Conspiracy Theory: Wall Street Investors Now Openly Admit The “Markets Are All Rigged” – 12 April 2015

NaturalNewss Logo-April-2014(NaturalNews) “The stock market is rigged.”

That’s the first line in a recent column by New York Post financial writer John Crudele. And while the tendency for many — especially anyone who is struggling to get by — is to instinctively believe him (using the because ALL rich people are greedy liars mentality), making such a bold claim really should require some evidence. Some proof.

Well, Crudele has provided it. And actually, the claim is nothing new; he’s been making it off and on for a couple years now, and with evidence.

Still, he notes, people “scoffed.” Some, he said, dismissed his claims as just another “conspiracy theory,” complete with “tinfoil hats” and the like. Most, however, just ignored him and continued with the belief that a stock market in a broke country, with a broke, underemployed population, can still gain in value, based on these stark economic realities, without any monkey business.

Steve Lendman – Congress Piling On Amendments To Anti-Iranian Nuclear Legislation – 12 April 2015

StevelendmanDemocrat and Republican hardliners are toughening the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 (INAR)

Obama opposes it. A possible veto-proof majority looms. The legislation aims to undermine consummating a final deal by giving Congress vetting power over its terms.

Israel and its Lobby want them tougher than any responsible government would accept – their way to kill an equitable deal altogether.

Congress is on board to oblige. More than 50 amendments are being considered.

On April 14, Senate Foreign Relations Committee members will begin debating them. Obama wants no congressional action until a final deal is reached by end of June. Continue reading

James Corbett – The Corbett Report – Interview 1025 – Keelan Balderson On Alt Media Hoaxes – 12 April 2015

Keelan Balderson of WideShut.co.uk joins the program today to discuss examples of child abuse witch hunts in the alternative media and how they can go very poorly. We examine the Hollie Greig case, where a Down’s syndrome girl was allegedly abused by a high-ranking pedophile ring for years, and how it spread through the alternative media without people verifying basic facts (like whether the victims were born at the time or whether the accused actually existed). We also talk about the recent allegations of child abuse in Hampstead, and what these stories tell us about how the alt media functions and how we can improve our own open source investigation into these topics.
