Are Sanctions An Excuse For Stealing A Nation's Money ???

The US and the EU are no strangers to looting from others. When financial sanctions were imposed on Libya by the US and the EU, Libyan funds and the interest it accumulated were appropriated and even illegally used by these actors. In this regard there are important questions about why the US is trying to keep the sanctions or end them in phases.

Are Iranian financial assets and funds really frozen or are they also being utilized as loans or collateral? In other words, have Iran’s frozen funds been channeled elsewhere by the US and the EU to make up for their own economic problems and the economic war against Russia? Do the financial liabilities of those holding Iranian funds exceed their financial assets? More simply asked: can the countries that froze Iran’s money pay Tehran its money back or are they stalling, because they cannot return all the money that was frozen under sanctions?


The position of the US and France are excuses to avoid lifting the sanctions on Iran and to avoid returning Iranian funds. Their goal is to neutralize the Iranian nuclear energy program while keeping the sanctions and appropriating Iranian funds. This is why the frame of time for Washington’s promises to remove the sanctions have no guarantees. The US is trying to impose legal obligations on Iran without any guarantees on the removal of sanctions. Washington’s promises to remove the sanctions also gradually become longer, changing from six months to a year to over a year, and have had additionally conditions placed on them.


Aside from the strategic considerations and dimensions of the nuclear negotiations, it should come as no surprise if Washington is stonewalling a final agreement to help the US and the EU continue siphoning Iran’s earnings. After all the US is in the midst of an economic war and fighting to keep the US dollar’s position as the top currency of the world while the EU is experiencing economic decline. The EU, however, is in a predicament; even if it wanted to keep Iranian funds and continue the sanctions, it still needs to start large-scale trade with Iran to mitigate its economic decline and negative effects from the EU sanctions against Russia.

This makes perfect sense. The US will do just about anything to stay afloat, including stealing from Iraq, Libya, and Iran.


This would also explain why the US cannot immediately return the gold of the nations (and US states) who have asked for it to be returned. The gold has been stolen, sold, or rehypothecated.


The US financial system is rotten to the core. Its fall is going to be VERY ugly.

GMO Corn Makes Rats Infertile

That's the finding from an Egyptian study:

The rich are going to get rid of us somehow. The chief candidates seem to be:

  • killer robots
  • poison food
  • vaccines

If given a choice, which type of horrible death would you prefer?

The New US Economy = Step And Fetch It



And since robots are now being trained to become waiters and bartenders, even those jobs will soon be lost, too.


By the way, the graph color scheme is screwed up.

Charleston Church Shooting vs. Sandy Hook

Serious anomalies have now cropped up, and many questions are left unanswered. The Charleston “massacre” looks like another false-flag staged shooting, as shown by articles on Memory Hole Blog, videos by Redsilverj, and posts elsewhere. Rather than calling this event “the 9/11 of the Black Church,” we should call it the “the Sandy Hook of the Black Church” instead.

Parallels with the Sandy Hook Elementary School “shooting” are indeed striking: a slight, young “shooter” with unlikely marksmanship skills, no photos of the dead or wounded where they fell, fake friends and relatives reciting their scripts without emotion, fake evidence from social media sites and Photoshopped images, a DHS/emergency preparedness drill taking place at the same time and location, and a massive amount of money transferred to the victims’ families – in Charleston, $29 million will be funneled directly to the families from the US Department of Justice.

And let’s not forget the blood. At Sandy Hook no bloody mess was shown, and no one could be found who had cleaned it up according to mandated biohazard waste disposal procedures. Likewise with Charleston. Amazingly, the Emanuel A.M.E. Church opened its doors for its regular Sunday morning service four days after the massacre, with overflow seating “set up in the wood-paneled basement, where the shooting took place, with folding tables and chairs set on linoleum floors that showed no evidence of the events of a few nights earlier.” This despite the prodigious cleaning job resulting from the bodies “left in a bloody pile” in the basement.

Why is it that every event of this kind has so many anomalies and contradictions? It's almost as if there is no external "reality" in which all the facts match up.

And if this is the nature of such things, how can we possibly think that jury verdicts are valid?

The strangest part of both these events is the large amount of money paid to families of the "victims" and the "survivors" by the federal government and other sources:
  • $27 million for Sandy Hook
  • $29 million for Charleston

People are murdered every day in the US. Why are these families being singled out for such largesse? And why in the case of Charleston are they being paid even before there is a trial to officially determine the guilt or innocence of the alleged shooter?

If you ask me, the whole thing stinks.

A Cult, Or True Christians ???

According to this report in the Houston Chronicle, the individuals from the Church of Wells who disrupted Joel Osteen's sermon are part of a "cult":

http://www.chron.com/news/nation-world/article/Ruckus-at-Lakewood-Church-signals-new-chapter-in-6361122.php


By the standards referred to in the report, they appear to meet such a definition.


I believe their actions were ill advised. However, we need to consider a few things before punishing these people:


(1) Their activities somewhat mimicked what Jesus did when He disrupted activities in the Jewish Temple and even drove people out using a whip:


And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;
And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father's house an house of merchandise.
John 2:14-16 KJV

(2) What the disruptors appear to have said about Joel seems to have some validity. Refer to the video embedded in this post for a lengthy discussion of Joel's heresy:


http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-heresy-of-joel-osteen.html


(3) According to the book Christ's Ventriloquists by Eric Zuesse (and many other sources), Saint Paul rebelled against leaders of the early Church in a manner at least as violent as did the members of the Church of Wells, and yet today he is revered as one of the chief architects of Christianity.


The US Constitution says this about religion:


Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...


It is within the rights of Lakewood Church to expel anyone who disrupts their worship service. It is not right for any earthly authority to then arrest those who were so expelled. Disagreeing with false doctrines and attempting to shield people from them is a basic function of religion, as confirmed by Jesus Himself.

It Begins - Robot Kills Worker

A technician has been killed by a robot at a Volkswagen plant near Kassel, Germany.

A 21 year old external contractor was installing the robot together with a colleague when he was struck in the chest by the robot and pressed against a metal plate. He later died of his injuries, reports Chris Bryant, the FT's Frankfurt correspondent.

Prosecutors have opened an investigation into how the accident occurred.

It appears that this robot did not intend to kill this man, but how much longer will we be able to say that?

Here is a report that an AI was getting "testy" with its programmers:

http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2015/06/26/artificial-intelligence-machine-gets-testy-with-its-programmers/

Although the significance of this report has been downplayed by some, if we give robots human emotions (or allow them to achieve them) won't they start acting like us? We are a very violent and bloodthirsty species after all.

And once autonomous battlefield robots are released into the world, I think all bets are off.

Obama Is A Shill For Big Pharma

According to this report, Obama ad-Dajjal's "legacy" "trade" deals contain provisions which are very favorable to Big Pharma and quite detrimental to the patients who will have to pay the bills:
