There’s a staggering amount of offensiveness in so few words. First off, he says that: “We should all be prepared for adjusting to a world that is harder.” Who is included in the word “all” here. Certainly not his fellow oligarchs, who already bailed themselves out in incredible fashion and have been spending the years since protecting themselves from the horrible future they’ve created. No, he is speaking to the masses, the plebs, the serfs, the peasants, the ruled. He is telling them tough luck, just try to avoid cannibalism in the future. Meanwhile, if you get close to my castle I’ll have you shot down like a dog on the spot.

What made you start the website SGTreport.com?
SGT: The website was started long after the YouTube channel, but both began completely as a labor of love. As a result of being invited to do this written interview, I went back to check the date of the first YouTube video I ever made and it was February 10, 2010. It’s called America Falls: The Bailouts – Part 1 and it now has 2,400 views. But it was a slow start, the second video was called America Falls – Part 2: “Truth Has Fallen And Taken Liberty With It”, it features Naomi Wolf and Paul Craig Roberts. I was shocked by the truth about the fascist state of affairs in our nation and I wanted to spread the information in any way I could. So I turned to YouTube to do it. Once I started getting some subscribers, a “friend” in the comments section kept urging me to start a website, so I finally did, in 2011. It has been visited more than 27 million times since. I feel very blessed to have been given this platform to offer my perspective on national and international events. Exercising our first amendment rights is one of the only ways we can turn things around, we MUST wake up our friends, neighbors and colleagues before it’s too late. But the hour is getting late for our “Republic”. Read more ›
We warn against trusting bureaucrats bearing false economy as ‘shocking austerity’ and ‘bed blocking costs more than is allegedly saved. In the second half, Max interviews Daniel Hassan of the Robin Hood Minor Asset Management Cooperative hedge fund which rides the wave of trading whales with the best performance record. Having outperformed the S&P index regularly since its inception, profits are shared between the cooperative members and groups expanding the commons and the public domain.
The Sun has mobilized this morning sending their goons to the Hoxton News site were a ‘re-BRANDING’ took place last night. They managed to strip away a part of the signage for Trews News but then were stopped dead in their tracks by locals. The media war in London gets into full swing!
- Geopolitical tensions in Middle East escalate dramatically as Saudi Arabia bombs Yemen - Yemen’s government seized power in coup – Regarded as hostile to Saudi and ally of Iran - Saudi attack is an escalation of Middle Eastern proxy war between Gulf States and Iran - Action has broader geopolitical implications in deepening cold war between the West and East - Oil surged 6% and gold 2% on the the news - Should oil prices return to new record highs will impact struggling global economy
Geopolitical tensions escalated dramatically over night as Saudi Arabia launched military operations including air strikes in Yemen. The Saudis claim the action is to counter Iran-allied forces besieging the southern city of Aden where the U.S. backed Yemeni president had taken refuge.
Oil surged and gold rose nearly 2% following a sharp drop in stocks on Wall Street globally in response to the bombing in Yemen.
Gulf broadcaster al-Arabiya TV reported that the kingdom was contributing as many as 150,000 troops and 100 war planes to the operations. Egypt, Jordan, Sudan and Pakistan were ready to take part in a ground offensive in Yemen, the broadcaster said. Read more ›
There are only two logical conclusions that can be reached about American foreign policy leadership in the 21st century.
1) American leadership is ruthlessly pursuing immoral wars all over the world with the intent of creating outside enemies to focus public anger on, as a conscious diversion away from the criminality happening domestically. As an added bonus, the intelligence-military-industrial complex makes an incredible sum of money. The end result: serfs are distracted with inane nationalistic fervor, while the “elites” earn billions.
2) American leadership is completely and totally inept; being easily manipulated into overseas conflicts by ruthless corporate interests and cunning foreign “rebels” in order to advance their own selfish interests, which are in conflict with the interests of the general public.
Either way, the status quo is in no position to be leading anything or anyone.
In California’s epic drought, wars over water rights continue, while innovative alternatives for increasing the available water supply go untapped.
Wars over California’s limited water supply have been going on for at least a century. Water wars have been the subject of some vintage movies, including the 1958 hit The Big Country starring Gregory Peck, Clint Eastwood’s 1985 Pale Rider, 1995’s Waterworld with Kevin Costner, and the 2005 film Batman Begins. Most acclaimed was the 1975 Academy Award winner Chinatown with Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, involving a plot between a corrupt Los Angeles politician and land speculators to fabricate the 1937 drought in order to force farmers to sell their land at low prices. The plot was rooted in historical fact, reflecting battles between Owens Valley farmers and Los Angeles urbanites over water rights.
Today the water wars continue on a larger scale with new players. It’s no longer just the farmers against the ranchers or the urbanites. It’s the people against the new “water barons” – Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Monsanto, the Bush family, and their ilk – who are buying up water all over the world at an unprecedented pace.

- Leading think tank forecasts strong economic growth in Ireland, ignores global risks - Impact of Euro zone debt crisis and global geopolitical risk underestimated - Global macro-economic, systemic, geo-political and monetary risks largely ignored - Risk that lulls politicians, investors and people into false sense of security … again
Ireland’s leading economic think tank, the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has issued its latest quarterly report in which it forecasts that the strong economic performance in Ireland is set to continue.
It has forecast strong economic growth of 4.4% this year and a lower but still strong 3.7% next year. It says it expects unemployment in Ireland to drop below 10% this year for the first time since 2008 and as low as 8.4% next year.
The report said the economy is now growing so strongly that Ireland’s budget deficit could be virtually eliminated by next year – two years ahead of schedule.
The economy was supported by the first growth in consumer spending since the start of the recession. Consumer spending grew by 1.1 per cent last year, and the think tank forecasts this to rise to 2 per cent this year.
However, the think tank does acknowledge that it will be constrained by the still very high levels of household and mortgage debt, by people prioritising debt repayment over consumption, and by the still falling level of consumer credit from Irish banks. Read more ›
There is much literature on the financial conditions of municipal governments in the US. Are things getting so bad financially for local governments that they are considering sorting through your feces for gold?
