ZeroHedge – When The Defaults Come, So Will The Wealth Grab – 5 July 2014

ZeroHedgeThe biggest problem with the epic Central Bank rig of the last five years is that propping up a bankrupt financial system by printing money only works for so long.

The reason for this is that no one, whether it be a country, company, or person, can defy mathematics.

A loan can be extended, it can be restructured, or it can be finagled in countless financial ways. But at the end of the day, if your creditors lost faith in your ability to repay it… it’s GAME OVER.

SuzanneLieAs I come toward the conclusion of the Pleiadian books, I am coming towards the conclusion of many other areas of my life. Primarily, I recognize how the outdated behaviors of my third-dimensional self lower my consciousness. Third dimensional behaviors have always limited our consciousness, but we could not identify them quickly enough to see the connection. Then, a long “time” after that behavior we would realize the cause of the situation that we had created. Continue reading

Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Who Is Foreign Aid For? Foreigners Or U.S. Corporations? – 5 july 2014

MishMikeShedlockLogically, one might assume that “foreign” aid is legitimate aid to foreigners. A little digging reveals the true nature of “aid”.

common-dreamsHillary Clinton: Snowden Should Submit to US Indictments

Likely presidential candidate says whistleblower has right to defend himself even though law he’s charged under forbids protections

– Jon Queally, staff writer

Hillary Clinton that if Edward Snowden really wants “debate” about NSA surveillance, he would submit himself to legal process she admits knowing very little about. In comments made to the Guardian newspaper on Friday, former U.S. Secretary of State and likely presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden should return home and face charges levied against him by the U.S. government.

“If he wishes to return knowing he would be held accountable and also able to present a defense, that is his decision to make,” Clinton told the newspaper during an interview conducted over video stream.

Snowden, whose disclosures have led to global uproar surrounding U.S. government surveillance on the world’s population, remains in Russia where has received asylum status. Both his lawyers and the former intelligence contractor himself have said that because he has been charged under the Espionage Act he would be denied protections afforded whistleblowers which would prevent him from arguing that his decision to leak the classified information was made in the name of the public interest.

Just 4 Fracking Wastewater Sites Cause 20 Percent Of All Central US Earthquakes – Study – 5 July 2014

RT logoJust four wastewater wells in Oklahoma – where energy companies dump water after completing the hydraulic fracturing process – have caused scores of earthquakes this year, some 30 km from the site, according to a new study by top US universities.

The report, published in Science magazine, focused on the Midwestern state, which has produced 45 percent of the country’s magnitude 3 or bigger seismic shocks in the past five years – with the numbers rising rapidly to match the intensification of fracking activities in the area.

While hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, – which involves pressuring rock formations with liquid until they crack, and then extracting the oil and gas within – poses an inherent risk of earthquakes, according to the authors, the biggest culprits were the wastewater wells, where the liquids used for fracking are pumped, once a reservoir is opened.
