[KR624] Keiser Report: Empire of Fictional Cash

We discuss the exorbitant privilege that is the dollar hegemony which offers nothing on the upside and only subjugation and humiliation on the downside. And despite having an empire of fictional money, the US appears to still have gone bankrupt on these fictional debts. But all that is to change as European companies, like Total, and officials, like the Bank of France governor, fight back suggesting an end to US dollar transactions on international trade. In the second half, Max interviews Arjen Kamphuis about his new and free digital manual The Infosecurity Handbook For Journalists and about driving the cost of NSA spying from the current 0.08 cents per person per day to $10,000 per person per day – thus, driving them out of business.

    Why A Surveillance Balloon Is Flying Over London to Protest Surveillance

    On June 19, Bridle released a military-grade surveillance balloon into the air above South London. Hosted at the parking-structure-turned-art-space Bold Tendencies, it’s the central part of the work. Until September, the balloon will lift a variety of communications payloads up into the air, such as aerial cameras and darknet routers.

    Janet Yellen Chimes in on the Bubble Question

    Risk? What Risk?

    Fed chair Janet Yellen recently uttered what sounded to us like a stunningly clueless assessment of the potential danger the echo bubble represents. She indicated on the occasion that she was certainly in no hurry to raise the administered interest rate from its current near-zero level.

    Why are a million people on strike today?

    What’s it all about?

    The main concern for unions is pay – most public sector workers have been offered a below inflation pay rise of 1% for 2014-15, but this follows four years of frozen pay.

    This means pay is almost 20% lower in real terms than in 2010.

    TUC research also shows public sector workers such as NHS staff, teachers, firefighters, civil servants and other public servants were on average £2,245 worse off in real terms since the coalition came into power.

    Other issues, such as pensions and workload, are problems for specific unions, such as the NUT.

    Why rich Chinese should worry about corruption crackdown

    China’s anti-corruption campaign has humbled multinational corporations, taken down senior officials and put brothels out of business.

    Now the focus of President Xi Jinping’s campaign may have turned to wealthy Chinese trying to move their riches abroad.

    This is big! July 8th breaking from Mexico. The illegal immigrant children entering the US is a planned operation. Somebody has paid millions of Dollars to get these kids up to the border. Also, as you will see in the link, DHS advertised for contractors to handle a large influx of illegal children back in January long before any of this happened. http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/scammerstrainoflies.html

    I’ve no idea why anyone would want to do this but everything we are being told about these kids riding on trains across Mexico from central America is false! They are being abducted by NGOs who are called “Outreach” charities and the parents whose kids are disappearing are telling the kids to stay away from “Gringo” (white) women.

    The other thing that’s suspicious is that nobody at all is allowed any contact with any of the Children once they are in the US. The only contact is through the contractors called Brownshirts and even donations of toys and footballs are prohibited.

    Of course, if these kids were abducted from central America this would become clear if anyone interviewed them because they would all have a similar story. Medical staff have gag orders and are not allowed mobile phones inside the locked down kids camps.

    From all the news reports in the US on this issue, I noticed that there’s not a single interview with any of these children. It’s not like there are no Spanish speakers in the US. Common sense tells you if you are dealing with an unaccompanied minor the first thing is to ask them how and why they came to be on the Mexican border.
