cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

theories and facts about Fort Hood

a loose compilation of things that sort of hang together:

1. excerpt from Christopher Story: Fort Hood: Recovery of the Chinese Currency Boxes


The shootings were staged in order to cover up what was really happening behind the scenes which was as follows:

(1): George H. W. D. V. D. Bush, the head of THE BOX GANG working with the Clintons, had stored some or all of the stolen/diverted 1933 dollar currency Chinese currency boxes referenced in our reports dated 4th and 5th November 2009 at Fort Hood. These boxes form part of the Settlement negotiated with the Chinese parties, who were immediately double-crossed by the Americans.

(2): We do not know at the time of posting whether George Bush Sr. had flown in to Fort Hood from Germany, but as this base is located close to Crawford and other Bush Crime Family locations, we believe this to be HIGHLY PROBABLE.

(3): Whether Bush Sr. flew into Fort Hood to be joined with the stolen/diverted Chinese-sourced currency boxes, or was accompanying stolen boxes on the plane, is not strictly material, because what we DO KNOW is as follows:

(4): An operation was mounted at Fort Hood to CONFISCATE THE STOLEN CHINESE CURRENCY BOXES FROM BUSH SR., which achieved its objective. The currency boxes, forming part of the Settlement that Adolf Schickelbusch sabotaged with the duplicitous assistance of his agent, Chancellor Angela Merkel [see preceding reports], were retrieved.

(5): It is likely that the shoot-out which occurred for public consumption was a diversionary operation masking a parallel shoot-out involving Bush bodyguards and US military, although we cannot confirm this. Certainly, the 'mainstream' media, as usual, is running the wrong story.

(6): The deployment of 500+ heavily armed troops, and the fact that military helicopters were called in, implies a sizeable operation, which would be make little sense in the context of a shooting such as is described in the media. That does not diminish the nastiness and tragedy of the loss of life as reported: but when this operation was planned, loss of life was factored into the equation.

It’s called cynically: COLLATERAL DAMAGE.


2. Who Woke the Dragon (pdf) by Darryl Robert Schoon

excerpt:

The 25 year US consumer bubble (which Japan enabled by purchasing larger and larger amounts of US debt) helped Japan to survive a deflationary contraction caused by the collapse of its speculative bubble in 1990 as US consumers increasingly stocked up on Japanese cars, electronics and consumer goods during this period.

During the 1990s and 2000s, Japan and China willingly invested their savings in US Treasury debt to increase exports to the US. The US encouraged this practice because without borrowing Asian savings, the US couldn’t spend money it didn’t have.

In the 1990s and 2000s, China bought increasing amounts of US Treasuries. Buying US debt was a quid pro quo China could not resist. Entry into the restricted arena of power is not easily come by and China’s increasingly large purchases of US debt removed any objections the US might have raised regarding the transfer of US technology and manufacturing to China.

Between 1996 and 2006, in their quest for profit, American multinationals transferred the bulk of America’s technological expertise and manufacturing capabilities to China, a transfer that was to transform China into a world power. China would never be the same—and neither would America.

...The world China is entering as a new power is in disarray; and those who currently wield power are the most vulnerable, as their paper money, the foundation of their suzerainty, is
increasingly suspect.

...That Russia and China, both former communist powers, support the return of gold and
silver whereas the US and UK, both capitalist powers, do not is understandable. This is
because the power of capitalism lies in its substitution of credit for gold and silver, a monetary slight-of-hand which England and the US leveraged for financial gain and world dominion—over Russia and China.

3. US prestige hit by declining dollar

Toronto, ON, Canada, — U.S. leaders are more concerned about their prestige, which has nose-dived due to the decline of the U.S. dollar, than the currency decline itself.

Although the decline may be a boon for importers of U.S. goods, because they become cheaper, it is a concern for nations who park their earnings in U.S. dollars. For them a decline denotes a fall in the value of their investments.

So investors are increasingly looking for other options, like gold and silver, to hedge their U.S. dollar currency investments if the decline becomes irreversible.

...

If the United States is to remain a world leader it must first check its spending. Then it must balance its trade and later close down its wars. It must curb its greed for money and profits, which is affecting its financial system.

The financial crisis that began in 2008 with subprime loans could have been controlled if not for the movers and shakers on Wall Street, who out of pure greed bundled the subprime loans into investment vehicles and freely traded them as investments. Since nobody supervised these transactions, banks, insurance companies and other investors got sucked in.

...

Japan and China are vying for influence at the international currency discussion table and are also toying with the idea of a new world currency. Japan’s GDP is US$4.5 trillion. It has a pacifist Constitution and has been led by a bunch of centrist politicians since World War II. Its economy has been going through rough times in the past 10 years and its leadership has shown no interest in international economic affairs. It may provide support to a new economic order, but does not wish to be at the center of it.

A newly developing China, with its questionable statistics made to impress outsiders, is vying for the crown. It claims an economy worth US$4 trillion, and is eager to play a role at the international economic discussion table. The reason for its overconfidence is the US$2 trillion reserves it holds in the United States as a trump card for foreign and economic policy. Hardly does China understand that the United States is in no mood to remit those reserves back to it anytime soon.

If the dollar has declined in value, so has the value of China’s reserves in the United States. Moreover, all the foreign direct investment in China balances its cash reserves. The Chinese can do nothing but wait and watch for the U.S. economy to emerge out of recession.

All of this points to one thing – waiting until the U.S. economy recovers and puts its house in order. Only then, under strong U.S. leadership, will a modified economic world order emerge. Only then will the currencies of China, Japan, the European Union and India gain respect.

4. US needs to match words with deeds on anti-protectionism

WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. Commerce Department said on Tuesday it would impose punitive tariffs ranging from 2.02 percent to 437.73 percent on imports of steel wire decking from China.

Once again, "made-in-China" has fallen victim to U.S. trade protectionist measures.

And it is hardly a week after Washington pledged actions against trade and investment protectionism at the 20th China-U.S. Joint Commission on Commerce and Trade (JCCT) talks in China's eastern city of Hangzhou.

The United States vowed to refrain from any new trade protectionism measures at the event. However, in the past week alone, it has imposed several punitive tariffs on Chinese products. Washington says it is trying to safeguard "trade rules" in applying the tariffs but it is apparent the United States is protecting its own interests at the expense of free trade.

5. US Commerce Secretary Gary Locke

As the first Chinese-American to hold this post in a president’s cabinet, Locke has a distinctly American story. His grandfather emigrated from China to Washington state, initially finding employment as a servant, working in exchange for English lessons. Locke’s father, also born in China, was a small business owner, operating a grocery store where Locke worked while receiving his education from Seattle’s public school system. His strong work ethic and determination eventually took him to the highest office in the state of Washington.

6. US Department of Energy, Secretary Steven Chu: CANNOT FIND SERVER

How does the US Department of Energy website go down?



7. UNCONFIRMED thoughts regarding the transfer of technology from the US to China, from Tom Heneghan reported on 10/31

The TREASONOUS deal between the Obama Administration and the Chinese was struck in the last 48 hours and directs the Obama U.S. Commerce Department to hand over secret trading codes that would allow the People's Republic of China to have a 20-second lead time on ALL worldwide security, currency and commodity trading transactions.

The secret codes are tied to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and two major on-line U.S. discount security and commodity trading companies with a direct liaison to the noted criminal firm Goldman Sachs.

The agreement also involves the government of Israel and its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu aka BibiFRAUD who will also be allowed access to these secret satellite trading codes acting as a middleman between the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate and the government of RED China.

Note: During her recent trip to Pakistan, Hillary Clinton, accompanied by U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke, also handed over to both Chinese and Israeli Intelligence secret U.S.-NATO-Russian nuclear launch codes that were used as a bribe to exact the Chinese acquiescence to continue to finance our massive debt and buy our U.S. Treasury bonds.

Item: Gary Locke was a former Clinton Administration official and former Lippo Bank executive
who operated in duality with the Clintons, former Clinton National Security Advisor Sandy Berger and then alleged Independent Counsel and UN-registered lobbyist for the Chinese government, Kenneth W. Starr, to hand over secret U.S. technology to the Chinese during the 1990s.

So it is now clear, folks, the Chinese have been paid back their $1.8 TRILLION loan tenfold.

8. Other events the last week of October involving China, the US military, and Nebraska

On October 28th US STRATCOM, headed by General Kevin Chilton, welcomed Chinese General Xu for a visit. Some photos here. According to an article in the Asia Times, this visit was a pretty big deal since Xu represents the highest ranking Chinese officer to ever visit STRATCOM.
Abraham Denmark, director of the Asia-Pacific Security Program at the Center for a New American Security in Washington, DC described Xu's visit to US STRATCOM as possibly enabling a discussion between the US and China on space and cyber issues, in addition to nuclear issues. Because Major General Yin Fanglong, director of the political department of the Second Artillery Corps, which commands China's missile and nuclear forces, was also part of the delegation, nuclear strategy and policy-related issues may well have been on the agenda in Nebraska, too.

...Denmark describes the recent US-China "Strategic and Economic Dialogue" as "a higher-level dialogue" because the US-China military-to-military relationship typically lags far behind the economic and political aspects of the relationship, "primarily because a general lack of strategic trust and, frankly, China's lack of interest in a frank and transparent military-to-military relationship."

..."The problem is that China continues to view transparency as transactional and a tool of strong powers over those that are weaker. Until that attitude changes, expectations will always be limited."
Is China lording economic strength over the US and extracting concessions?
Richard Fisher, senior fellow at the International Assessment and Strategy Center in Washington DC, listened to Xu's speech and found that important details were lacking. China's reluctance to become more transparent was driven home by Xu's decision to hand out a book - The Wisdom of Sun Tzu - as part of a gift package to members of the audience.

"Nearly 2,000 years before Machiavelli, Sun Tzu raised lying and deception to the acme of statesmanship," said Fisher. Also, "there was no attempt [during Xu's speech] to satisfy demands for 'transparency' in areas of concern to the US and China's neighbors; no serious details on nukes, intentions versus Taiwan, Japan or future power projection plans."
Meanwhile there's been some arrests in a money-laundering case involving international hedge funds, K1 Group to be specific, which is a German hedge fund allegedly linked to Bush 41.

A German financial manager based in Miami was arrested on money-laundering charges Wednesday as part of a sweeping criminal investigation into an international hedge fund that has cost major banks about $400 million in losses, according to sources familiar with the probe.

Stefan R. Seuss, arrested at his Coconut Grove home by FBI agents, appeared in federal court in Miami and agreed to be transferred to Philadelphia, where a grand jury has indicted him in the money-laundering conspiracy case.

Seuss has been charged in connection with a global criminal investigation into the German hedge fund, K1 Group, headed by Helmut Kiener, according to sources familiar with the case. Kiener's home in Germany was raided by authorities Wednesday.

Kiener's hedge fund is suspected of engaging in ``circular transactions'' with a network of investment firms in the United States, United Kingdom and other countries [love how they are not named - ed.] to create the ``illusion'' that it had ample money to back up loans from the banks, according to Bloomberg News.

Among the reported banks saddled with huge losses: Barclays, JPMorgan Chase & Co. and BNP Paribas.

Seuss specialized in transferring money from the United States to offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands and elsewhere -- and then to foreign bank accounts, according to an indictment. Seuss was associated with various Swiss financial institutions, including Wegelin Bank, the indictment said.

His investors' funds were placed in life insurance annuities offered by Seuss' associate, Thomas R. Meyer, a U.S. citizen and German national who lived in Omaha, Neb.

Meyer was also charged in the indictment.

Both men agreed to transfer $500,000 in ``illegal'' profits from pirated CD, DVD and software sales for a federal undercover agent posing as a New York businessman, the indictment said.

During the previous two years, the undercover agent recorded meetings with the men at a hotel in Philadelphia and an office at Florida's Ponte Vedra Beach where they discussed the initial ``test'' transaction of $500,000 -- and later up to $5 million.

Nebraska, the middle of nowhere.

What was discussed?
"In the interest of strengthening our military-to-military relations with a candid and open exchange of information, we will not disclose the details of the discussions," said a US STRATCOM spokesman.
