there is no past. There is no future. It’s all just a constant stream of NOW.
Watching the Brexit campaign generated mixed feelings: it was a little like the man who saw his mother-in-law drive his new Mercedes off a cliff. In the United Kingdom, some people who hated free trade, immigration and market innovation challenged the officious, wannabe superstate headquartered in Brussels. Who to cheer for?
We should cheer for the Brexiteers, who deserve at least a couple of hurrahs. The European Union created a common market throughout the continent, an undoubted good, but since then has focused on becoming a meddling Leviathan like Washington, DC. For Britain, the virtues of remaining appeared to pale in comparison to the likely costs of continued subservience to Brussels. In a variety of imperfect ways, Brexit promoted liberty, community, democracy and the rule of law. In short, the good guys won.
Here are sixteen reasons why the United Kingdom was better off Brexiting:
1. Average folks took on the commanding heights of politics, business, journalism and academia and triumphed. Obviously, the “little guy” isn’t always right, but the fact he can win demonstrates that a system whose pathways remain open to those the Bible refer to as “the least of these.” The wealthiest, best-organized and most publicized factions don’t always win.
2. Told to choose between economic bounty and self-governance, a majority of Britons chose the latter. It’s a false choice in this case, but people recognized that the sum of human existence is not material. The problem is not just the decisions previously taken away from those elected to govern the UK; it’s also the decisions that would have been taken away in the future had “Remain” won.
3. Those governed decided that they should make fundamental decisions about who would rule over them. The Eurocrats, a gaggle of politicians, bureaucrats, journalists, academics, lobbyists and businessmen were determined to achieve their ends no matter what the European people thought. A constitution rejected? Use a treaty. A treaty rejected? Vote again. A busted monetary union? Force a political union. And never, ever consult the public. No longer, said the British.
4. The rule of law will be respected—or at least not flagrantly flouted. Those signing up as EU members did not realize that the EU would be a transfer union. At least some countries likely would not have ratified the Lisbon Treaty, expanding Brussels’ writ, had they realized that explicit strictures against bailouts would be ostentatiously ignored. No doubt the usual suspects believed they were doing the Lord’s work by violating legal guarantees. But today no one living under the EU has any assurance that laws made, rules issued and promises offered would be kept.
5. Routine incantations of the need for “more Europe” and importance of “European solidarity” no longer will be confused with arguments. Those in charge always want more—more money to distribute, publicity to satisfy, rules to enforce and power to wield. Their vision of “more Europe” is Europe giving them more. “European solidarity” means others caring for them after they have wasted everything under their control.
6. Democracy will have triumphed over bureaucratic inertia. The EU is known for its “democratic deficit”, a Hydra-headed, unelected executive and a parliament chosen by people usually voting on domestic issues, using the polls for the European Parliament to punish errant governments at home. The Brussels bureaucracy has become the perfect means to impose policies that lack political support among member governments and peoples.
7. The pretensions of the EU as Weltmacht never looked so silly. There is a flag that no one salutes, and an anthem no one sings. There are multiple presidents: three, four or five? There is enervating duplication, including an EU foreign minister and diplomatic service along with those representing twenty-eight individual member states. Constant talk of creating a continental military while countries steadily shrink military outlays. Insistence that all which is good and decent comes from the EU as ever more people organize and vote against it.
8. The great satisfaction of watching smug smiles disappear from the faces of Eurocrats on both sides of the English Channel. The Brexit battle never was supposed to be a fair contest. It was intended to solve a Tory political problem, allowing the irreconcilables to make fools of themselves while the best and brightest led voters to the light. But it didn’t work out that way.
Meet The World Leader Who Stole His Citizens’ Gold
Even before his coronation in 1626, King Charles I of England was almost bankrupt.
His predecessors King James and Queen Elizabeth had run the royal treasury down to almost nothing.
Costly war and military folly had taken its toll. The crown had simply wasted far too much money, and brought in too little.
To make matters worse, King Charles was constantly at odds with parliament.
The English government was completely dysfunctional, with constant bickering, personal attacks, and very little sound decision-making.
Parliament refused to pass the taxes that Charles needed to make ends meet. But at the same time, the King was legally unable to levy his own taxes without parliamentary approval.
So, faced with financial desperation, he began to look for alternative ways to raise revenue.
One way was relying on practically ancient, obscure laws to penalize his subjects.
The Distraint of Knighthood, for example, was based on an act from 1278, roughly three and a half centuries before Charles’ coronation.
The Act gave him the legal authority to fine all men with a minimum level of income who did not present themselves in person at his coronation.
Charles also commandeered vast amounts of land, restoring the boundaries of the royal forests to where they had been during the time of King Edward I in the 13th century.
He then fined anyone who encroached on the land, and resold much of it to industries that were supportive of his reign.
King Charles even resorted to begging; in July 1626, he requested that his subjects “lovingly, freely, and voluntarily” give him money.
When that didn’t work, the King levied a Forced Loan, effectively confiscating people’s funds under the guise of ‘borrowing’ it.
He raised about £250,000, the equivalent of about $7.5 billion today.
Emboldened by his success, Charles eventually seized assets directly, including all the gold on deposit being held at the Royal Mint– money that belonged to the merchants and goldsmiths of England.
At one point Charles even forced the East India Company to ‘loan’ him their pepper and spice inventory. He subsequently sold the products at a steep loss.
If any of this sounds familiar, it should.
Today there is no shortage of nations facing fiscal desperation. Most of Europe. Japan. The United States.
In the Land of the Free, the government has spent years… decades… engaged in the most wasteful folly, from multi-trillion dollar wars to a multi-billion dollar website.
US debt just hit $19 trillion a few days ago. And it’s only going higher.
We can already see the government’s financial desperation.
Over the years, the government has effectively levied a ‘forced loan’ totaling more than $2.6 trillion on the Social Security Trust Fund, whose ultimate beneficiaries are the taxpayers of the United States.
Bottom line, they’re ‘borrowing’ YOUR money.
Last year the government stole more from Americans through ‘Civil Asset Forfeiture’ than all the thieves in the United States combined.
In December, the US government confiscated $19.3 billion from the Federal Reserve, which, by the way, was already very thinly capitalized.
Even if you want to believe the propaganda, it’s clear that these are not the actions of a healthy, solvent government that embraces liberty.
In fact, the government published over 80,000 pages of laws, bills, regulations, and executive orders last year. Just this morning they published another 308 pages.
It’s impossible for anyone to keep up with all of these rules. And yet each can carry civil and criminal penalties, including a fine now for not having health insurance.
As Mark Twain used to say, history may not repeat, but it certainly rhymes.
Financially insolvent governments of major superpowers do not simply go gentle into that good night.
They don’t suddenly turn over a new leaf and start embracing economic freedom.
Instead, they get worse. More desperate. More destructive.
Should we honestly believe that they can continue racking up more debt than has ever existed in the history of the world without any consequences?
This is madness. At some point, fiscal reality always catches up. Maybe not at $19 trillion. Maybe not even at $20 trillion.
Maybe it takes 3 months. Or 3 years. But somewhere out there is a straw that can break the camel’s back. And that has serious consequences.
Never forget that if something is predictable, then it’s also preventable.
And facing such obvious trends, it makes all the sense in the world to take some simple, rational steps to put together your own Plan B.

The two Liaison Officers assigned to the murder investigation of Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman were known to the British Police hierarchy as Paedophiles at least 3 months prior to the investigation, due to Operation Ore.
*According to media reports, the names of 2 former Labour Cabinet Ministers said to be `Household names` appear on the `Operation Ore ` list of subscribers to hard-core child pornography. The same FBI investigation, which led to the arrest of rock star Pete Townsend. So who are they Mr Gordon Brown?
BUT I think we can work that one out for ourselves……see post
This we are afraid is only the tip of the iceberg. This will be continued…
Waiting for an internal review by Home Office of their handling of this request
OUR GOVERNMENT HAS PUT 2 GOVERNMENT PAEDOPHILE RINGS UNDER A D-NOTICE FOR 100 YEARS
THE DUNBLANE PAEDOPHILE RING INCLUDING LABOUR LORD GEORGE ROBERTSON
AND THE NORTH WALES PAEDOPHILE RING INCLUDING TORY LORD MACALPINE …EX THATCHER AID
SO do NOT expect a Tory Government to release the information ,OR even to stop MOLESTING YOUR CHILDREN!!!
PLEASE PEOPLE WE must stop these monsters having the power of LIFE AND DEATH over us and our kids!
Its the 21st Century AD and we can NOW defy the “Laws of gods” ,that do NOT appeal ,BUT we cannot defy the laws of MEN?
If you can believe in MORALITY without god and religion, why NOT society without government ?
Switzerland has survived with less crime and higher living standards and has completely missed the destruction of 2 World Wars and completely AVOIDED the current illegal wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the terrorist bombings that would inevitably follow (thanks to our government sponsored terrorists) and they managed to do all this WITHOUT A “DEMOCRATIC” GOVERNMENT.
Officially the Swiss Confederation (Confoederatio Helvetica in Latin, hence its ISO country codes CH and CHE), is a federal republic consisting of 26 cantons. its Federal state, with parliamentary system and direct democracy.
Direct democracy, classically termed pure democracy,comprises a form of democracy and theory of civics whereinsovereignty is lodged in the assembly of all citizens who choose to participate. Depending on the particular system, this assembly might pass executive motions, make laws, elect or dismiss officials, and conduct trials. Direct democracy stands in contrast to representative democracy, (UK/USA)where sovereignty is exercised by a subset of the people, usually on the basis of election) FYI “Direct democracy” is a form of ANARCHISM!
THE SWISS HAVE NO STANDING ARMY!!!!!! The Swiss Confederation has a long history of neutrality—it has not been in a state of war internationally since 1815.The Swiss Armed Forces, including the Land Forces and the Air Force, are composed of conscripts: professional soldiers constitute only about 5 percent of the military personnel.The structure of the Swiss militia system stipulates that the soldiers keep their own personal equipment, including all personal weapons, at home.
THERE IS NOT AN ARMY ON EARTH THAT COULD TAKE SWITZERLAND!!!
IT IS TIME TO FOLLOW THE SWISS EXAMPLE , DISBAND THE PARLIAMENTARY DICTATORSHIP (THE UK AND USA HAVE AN ELECTED DICTATORSHIP …….OR PARLIAMENTARY DEMOCRACY AS politicians CALL IT)
This way we can expose paedophiles in government instead of covering for them for a 100 years!!!
AND ITS TIME TO DISBAND OUR STANDING ARMIES (WHICH HAVE DONE NOTHING BUT INVADE OTHER PEOPLES COUNTRIES!!!!!!)
This would stop ” blackmailed ” MP’s using the army to invade other countries that are no threat to us and inflicting untold damage and suffering on the world.
For those who think we NEED governments please offer YOUR KIDS ,for sex and slaughter ,to these monsters!!!!!!
Hopefully it will stop them molesting mine!!

Chilling UK Government “Advice” Asks Parents To Spy On Their Kids
This is WAY beyond ‘if you see something, say something.’
In a series of pamphlets circulated among local governments in the United Kingdom, British parents are now being encouraged to spy on their own children, and to report any instances of possible ‘radicalization’.
Of course this advice comes with a nifty set of instructions for how to spot a terrorist in your own home:
The first three “signs”:
- Out of character changes in dress, behaviour and changes in their friendship group;
- Losing interest in previous activities and friendships;
- Secretive behaviour and switching screens when you come near—
Imagine that– a teenager who doesn’t want mom and dad to see what he’s doing on his iPhone? Or a 14-year old who starts dressing differently and hanging out with a different group of friends?
Funny, this sounds like. . . pretty much every teenager on the planet.
But even more unsettling are these:
- Showing a mistrust of mainstream media reports and belief in conspiracy theories;
- Appearing angry about government policies, especially foreign policy.
So apparently now questioning the propaganda and government policies are considered evidence of subversive, extremist behavior.
If you don’t fall in line, you’re a radical. And the government now wants to train parents to rat out their own children.
This is chilling. Disgusting. And unfortunately not too surprising from the country that was the backdrop for George Orwell’s 1984.
Orwell’s dystopic view of the future is rapidly becoming reality in many countries across the West.
The endless government monitoring of all electronic communication is prevalent everywhere in the ‘free’ world.
Financial privacy has been destroyed. Banks are now merely unpaid spies of bankrupt governments, and they will freeze you out of your life’s savings in a heartbeat if some faceless bureaucrat orders them to do so.
Civil Asset Forfeiture, where police and government agencies confiscate your cash and property without the slightest bit of due process, is at an all-time high.
So much, in fact, that the government now steals more from its citizens than private criminals.
Governments have even shown an alarming willingness to confiscate your own children if they deem in their sole discretion that you are an unfit parent… which may now include, obviously, ‘subversive’ behavior like questioning authority.
Now in Britain they want to turn the tables and have parents spy on children.
So the Ministry of Truth and Ministry of Love, it appears, are alive and well.
Yes, there have been some terrible tragedies lately. But governments are using these attacks as a way to tap into people’s most carnal fears, however unlikely they may be.
As we’ve discussed before, you’re more likely to choke on a hot dog than die in a terrorist attack.
But they’ll never spend trillions on a war against hot dogs… because hot dogs aren’t as scary as the image of an angry brown teenager with a headwrap and AK-47 climbing across a set of monkey bars in a terrorist training camp.
Governments stoke this fear and use it to award themselves even more power in the name of protecting you.
Now they’re encouraging you to violate the most sacred bonds of family as some sort of duty to the state.
Look, I have no doubt that there’s an army of bureaucrats out there who feel they have an honorable burden to keep people safe.
And they’re doing whatever they think they can do to protect us.
This sort of idea would have been unimaginable not too long ago… the stuff of North Korea or the Soviet Union. Yet today it seems perfectly acceptable.
It’s an incredible reminder of how the free world is now ruled by irrational paranoia, and not on the principles of liberty upon which it was founded.
Forced child marriages in Australia: ‘they’re being groomed from the moment they’re born’
Jasvinder’s sister, Robina, committed suicide by setting herself on fire. Picture: supplied.
AT JUST eight years old, as she innocently spent her days between school and her family home in England, Jasvinder Sanghera’s parents secretly promised their young daughter’s hand in marriage to a strange man in India.
Jasvinder was none the wiser. She was just a little girl with only innocent things on her mind.
But as the years rolled by and she watched her older sisters pulled out of school when they reached their teens and sent off to marry men they had only ever seen in a single photograph, she started to realise her destiny had already been sealed.
“I watched at least two of my seven sisters being taken out of a classroom to marry men in India,” Jasvinder told news.com.au. Jasvinder said her sisters “disappeared” but that no one questioned their disappearance.
“My sister Robina was missing from her education for nine months and suddenly returned and was put in my year to catch up. But she was someone’s wife, she had a wedding ring on her finger and wasn’t allowed to wear western dress or integrate.
“I was born in Britain but my father was from India … the professionals were too afraid to ask the question for fear of offending … no one wanted to be called a racist.”
The moment Jasvinder had been dreading most finally arrived one day when she returned home from school, aged 14.
Her mother asked her to sit down in the lounge room.
“My mother presented me a photograph of a man I learned I had been promised to at the age of eight,” she said.
“I said ‘I’m not marrying a stranger, I want to go to school, I was born in Britain’.
“My mother made it clear none of that mattered in the place I was going and that she had only sent me to school because of the law.
“I protested and as a result I was taken out of school and held prisoner in my home.
“My parents put padlocks on my bedroom door and my mother, father and sisters all watched the door to make sure I didn’t leave home until I agreed to the marriage.
“I was missing school but I knew if the teachers called my parents would just give an Oscar winning performance and say I was unwell, or being educated at home or abroad.
“I attempted suicide once, I took an overdose, but they wouldn’t let me go to the hospital for medical attention.
“They gave me coffee and walked me up and down and made me put my fingers down my throat until I was sick because of the fear I would tell someone.
“In the end I agreed to the marriage while planning my escape.”
When Jasvinder was 16, she overheard her mother on the phone booking her ticket to India to marry the man she had never met.
“I ran away,” she said.
“Forced marriage means you are giving your child to a stranger to rape on their wedding night.
“I was missing my family and I wanted to go home, because I’d lost everything I’d ever known.
“I rang them and wanted them to say ‘we see your point, come home, you don’t have to marry this stranger’.
“But instead, when I rang, my mother said ‘you either come home and marry who we say or from this day forward you are dead in our eyes’.
“I told her I would not marry and she said ‘I hope you give birth to a daughter like you and then you will know what it’s like to raise a prostitute’.”
Jasvinder said going against her family was a difficult choice to make.
“My family disowned me,” she said.
“It wasn’t just my parents, it was aunties and uncles and such a wider network.
“Imagine never seeing a family member ever again, even though they’re alive, and feeling it was your fault.
“They make you feel you’re the perpetrator.”
Despite the difficulties she experienced, Jasvinder, who now has three children and a grandson, has never regretted her decision to escape.
“My children will never inherit that legacy of abuse because of that decision I made when I was 16,” she said.
One of Jasvinder’s older sisters, Robina, wasn’t so lucky. Robina was severely abused physically and mentally by her husband who left her “black and blue”. Trapped in a forced marriage and told by her parents that she’d be disowned if she left, Robina set herself on fire and committed suicide.
Jasvinder set up an organisation, Karma Nirvana and hotline in her sister’s honour for victims of forced marriage and honour killings in the United Kingdom. She has become an international advocate and author of three books on forced marriage and is currently in Australia to speak on about her experiences in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.
Jasvinder said forced marriage involving children was rampant around the world and also present in Australia.
“We get victims in Australia calling my hotline all the time seeking support, it’s only been set up for British citizens, but there isn’t a helpline in Australia except for a police one that a lot of people are too scared to call,” she said.
“It’s a widespread issue in Australia we just don’t see young children being groomed by their parents to marry strange men because we’re oblivious.
“The reality is many of them are being groomed from the moment they’re born.
“The children are usually married in nonlegal ceremonies or taken to their parents’ home countries to marry the men their relatives choose for them and we look at their families thinking they appear protected and don’t notice anything else because we’re not looking for it.”
Anti Slavery Australia director, Jennifer Burn said she was currently assisting “about 70 clients”, all victims of human trafficking, many aged under 18 years.
“They are fairly representative of the men and women who have been trafficked to Australia from the Asia Pacific region,” Ms Burn told news.com.au
“We are seeing an emerging caseload involving Australians who might be in a forced marriage situation.” Ms Burn said there were “no reliable statistics” on forced marriage in Australia. “Forced marriage is a slavery-like practice,” she said.
Ms Burn said many underage forced marriages were conducted “outside of the Marriage Act”. “They might be cultural or religious marriages,” she said.
“We have obligations in international and Australian law to prevent forced marriages and to protect those involved.”
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) has investigated 20 matters of suspected forced marriage in Australia from January 1 to September 30 this year.
Eight were in NSW, seven in Victoria, four in Queensland and one in South Australia
Eleven of the investigations involved persons under the age of 18 years.
“No charges or convictions have been recorded out of these investigations at this time,” an AFP spokesman said.
“Forced marriage matters can be particularly challenging to investigate and prosecute for a number of reasons”.
“Investigations are lengthy and complex; Prosecutions rely heavily on victim testimony but victims and witnesses can be reluctant to give evidence due to fear of reprisals and shame, and; the clandestine nature of the crime type results in apprehension by witnesses/victims in making initial contact with authorities,” the AFP said.
Earlier this month the Herald Sun reported foreign clerics had been visiting Australia to illegally marry off under-age girls, according to allegations raised with the Federal Government.
The AFP investigated allegations of 42 forced marriages, including 32 involving children, between March 2013 and August this year. Seven child bride cases were in Victoria.
It is understood the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions is considering charges in a number of cases.
And allegations were raised with the Attorney-General’s department early this year that clerics had been “entering Australia in order to conduct marriages of under-age girls”, according to documents released under Freedom of Information laws.
The AFP’s human trafficking team said it had no such evidence, but would not clarify if any of its 42 inquiries involved such allegations.
The visas of up to 20 clerics have been cancelled in the past 2.5 years for fear they would disrupt community harmony or incite violence, or because their credentials were bogus.
Since 2013, 140 religious worker visas have been cancelled or withdrawn.
According to the FOI documents, marriages of so-called “jihadi brides” to Islamic State terrorists could be nullified.
“Australia’s existing forced marriage offences capture a range of marriage and marriage-like relationships, and can apply where the victim is taken overseas to be married, or where an Australian citizen or resident is involved in forcing a person to be married overseas,” a briefing states.
“The existing and amended offences could apply to so-called ‘jihadi brides’ if they did not consent to a marriage because of coercion, threat or deception (under the existing offences), or because they did not understand the nature and effect of a marriage ceremony (under the amendments).”
Forced marriage offences carry a jail term of up to four years, or seven years if the victim is under 18, and 25 years if a minor is trafficked overseas.
The AFP encourages victims of human trafficking or those that have information regarding human trafficking to contact the AFP on 131 AFP (131237) or email Victim-Based-Crime@afp.gov.au.
Russell Brand Exposes UK’s Pedophile Politicians
It is now a fact that current and former politicians in the UK are complicit in pedophilia.
The establishment and media has tried their best to cover up the evidence plus 114 documents mysteriously going missing. Try as they may it is now undeniable that pedophilia is rampant in UK elite circles and the public demands that the people involved be named, shamed and jailed.
Close links between mass pedophiles like Jimmy Savile and Jeffrey Epstein to both Prince Charles andPrince Andrew are now clear and well documented. Attending parties on private islands when the events occurred, even photographed with the victim.
With the mounting pressure and increase in public knowledge on these matter, thanks largely to the internet, these criminal elite may have finally met their match.
Here is Russell’s latest video hitting out at the pedophile establishment (be sure to watch at 4:04 in the video, this is what the media should be asking):

Governments Admit They Carry Out False Flag Terror
Governments from around the world admit they carry out false flag terror:
- A major with the Nazi SS admitted at the Nuremberg trials that – under orders from the chief of the Gestapo – he and some other Nazi operatives faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. Nazi general Franz Halder also testified at the Nuremberg trials that Nazi leader Hermann Goering admitted to setting fire to the German parliament building, and then falsely blaming the communists for the arson
- Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev admitted in writing that the Soviet Union’s Red Army shelled the Russian village of Mainila in 1939, and declared that the fire originated from Finland as a basis launching the Winter War four days later
- Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this)
- The CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister
- The former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligenceadmit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated: “You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple.

The numbers do not appear to have been physically removed; the pistols seem to have come off a production line without any serial numbers. Analysts suggest the lack of serial numbers indicates that the weapons were intended for intelligence operations or terrorist cells with substantial government backing. Analysts speculate that these guns are probably from either Mossad or the CIA. Analysts speculate that agent provocateurs may be using the untraceable weapons even as U.S. authorities use insurgent attacks against civilians as evidence of the illegitimacy of the resistance.

So Common … There’s a Name for It
This tactic is so common that it was given a name for hundreds of years ago.
“False flag terrorism” is defined as a government attacking its own people, then blaming others in order to justify going to war against the people it blames. Or as Wikipedia defines it:
False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to appear as if they are being carried out by other entities.
The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy’s strategy of tension.
The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship in its own navy. Because the enemy’s flag, instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking ship, was hung, it was called a “false flag” attack.
Leaders Throughout History Have Acknowledged False Flags
Leaders throughout history have acknowledged the danger of false flags:
“This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.”
“If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”
- U.S. President James Madison
“A history of false flag attacks used to manipulate the minds of the people! “In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations, and epochs it is the rule.”
? Friedrich Nietzsche
“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death”.
- Adolph Hitler
“Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”
- Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.
“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened”.
- Josef Stalin
People Are Waking Up to False Flags
People are slowly waking up to this whole con job by governments who want to justify war.
More people are talking about the phrase “false flag” than ever before.
51 homicides and suspcious deaths with links to the VIP Child Sexual Abuse network
Northern Ireland (Kincora);
Richmond and Islington (Grafton Close and Elm Guest House); and
The Channel Islands (Haut de la Garenne).
Dolphin Square in Pimlico also features as a sexual abuse and murder site.
Esther Baker alleges politician was in group whose influential members abused young girls in Cannock Chase in 1980s and 90s.
A woman has waived her right to lifelong anonymity to allege that a well-known politician was part of a VIP paedophile ring that sexually abused children in the Staffordshire countryside in the 1980s and 90s.
Esther Baker, 32, said the politician was in a group whose influential members routinely abused young girls in Cannock Chase as uniformed police officers stood guard.
In an interview with the Guardian, Baker said she had identified several of her abusers – including the politician – to police after summoning the courage to speak out.
“I’ve spoken out because I hope witnesses will come forward,” she said. “I know what it’s like to be the first one to come out and speak about it, it’s scary but I felt almost forced to come forward to protect myself. Once it’s out there there’s no point them trying to shut me up.”
Baker, who lives in Liverpool, has given graphic and detailed testimony to detectives in interviews spanning 33 hours. A further 18 hours of evidence-giving has been planned, with detectives considering taking her back to Cannock Chase where she was abused over 20 years ago.
The 32-year-old broke her silence in an interview with Sky News on Tuesday morning. Since it aired, she has been inundated with support from fellow child abuse survivors.
Baker told the Guardian she was first abused by the politician when she was around six years old. Working with police, she has established that the abuse continued until she was at least 11.
Detectives have been told that the politician, who is still alive and of the current political era, would make her sit on his knee while she played the piano and on other occasions sexually abused her on Cannock Chase fields. He cannot be named for legal reasons.
She says she believes a lord and a judge were also involved because their titles would be mentioned while the attacks were taking place. “I was brought up in a religious household and … I thought they were on God’s authority,” she said.
“I knew they were important but I always thought they were more important in the church. That’s what I related it to at the time. But I knew there were ones that were more special than others.”
A small group of police officers, some uniformed, stood guard while the abuse was taking place, she said, and other times they would join in. One of the officers she recognised from church.
On one occasion Baker tried to flee the abuse but was chased and caught by one of the officers standing guard. He told her he was sorry, she said, but still took her back to where the attacks were taking place.
She now believes the officers could hold vital information about the abuse meted out to children in Cannock Chase.
Asked whether she had a message for other child abuse survivors and witnesses, she said: “Just that it’s time to come forward. If we all come forward then they can’t stop us now. They could back then but they can’t now if we all come forward.”
In a highly unorthodox statement, Jon Drake, assistant chief constable of Staffordshire police, underlined how seriously the force was taking Baker’s allegations when he said officers recognised “the horrific nature of what we are investigating”.
He said: “Staffordshire police is in the early stages of investigating a number of very serious allegations from the 1980s and 90s. Specially trained officers are carrying out a number of interviews with the victim to build up an understanding of what took place, and her recollections of all those involved.”
Drake said detectives were determined to thoroughly gather any evidence that would help bring offenders to justice. He added: “To be clear, regardless of role, anyone who has been involved in criminal offences will be investigated to provide justice for the victim.
“Child abuse is a terrible crime, whenever it occurs. We are keen to hear from anyone who knows more about the allegations, or any other victim of child sexual abuse, and they can contact the police through 101, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
“In this specific case the victim has made the decision to waive her right to anonymity. Staffordshire police wants to reassure anyone who has been a victim of any form of child or sexual abuse that their anonymity will be protected.”
Baker is receiving ongoing support from Merseyside-based group the Lantern Project, which offers counselling and advocacy to survivors of child sexual abuse.
Police last week revealed the enormous scale of alleged child abuse they are investigating. Ch Const Simon Bailey said 1,433 men – including 76 politicians, 43 music stars and 135 TV, film or radio entertainers – have been identified by abuse survivors.
Gabrielle Shaw, chief executive of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, lauded Baker’s bravery and said her decision to speak out would help others come forward.
“For everyone that does speak out it chips away at the wall of untouchability that victims feel their abusers have,” she said. “There has been a stark sea change in attitudes to survivors who have come forward since 2013, in the post-Savile era.
“Ten or 15 years ago the response would have been very different – she wouldn’t have been believed – but Staffordshire police have taken it very seriously.”
A BRITISH schoolgirl was raped by at least 60 men who were part of a horrific child sex ring, a court has heard.
The girl, who aged between 12 and 14 at the time, was subjected to “horrific sexual assault on a massive scale”, a jury at the Old Bailey heard.
The girl’s friend was also allegedly raped by two members of the gang in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, The Mirror reports.
Eleven Asian men are on trial and face charges of rape, sexual assault, conspiracy to commit sexual assault, conspiracy to commit rape, conspiracy to facilitate child prostitution and drugging the girls in order to rape them.
The defendants deny the offences said to have been committed between 2006 and 2012.
Prosecutor Oliver Saxby said the two girls, who came from broken homes, were plied with alcohol, drugs and other gifts such as DVDs and food by the men to groom them and gain their trust.
He said the girls’ idea of right and wrong had been “completely distorted”.
“They were being conditioned, exploited. Their trust was being established. And then they were sexually abused,” Mr Saxby told the court.
“Notwithstanding that they were children, they spoke in terms of these men being their boyfriends. And they were passed from man to man — sometimes on a daily basis.”
The case continues.
(ED: And the horror continues)
Officer leading Operation Hydrant inquiry says out of 1,433 alleged offenders 76 were politicians, 43 were from music industry and 135 were from TV, film or radio.
Police across the country are investigating more than 1,400 men – including 261 high-profile individuals – over allegations of child abuse in the past, a senior officer running the national operation has revealed.
The scale of alleged child abuse across society – both recent and non-recent – was stark, said Ch Const Simon Bailey, who runs Operation Hydrant, the national coordinating team overseeing the various inquiries.
Figures from police forces in England and Wales published on Wednesday reveal that 1,433 men have been identified in reports of alleged abuse by victims, since the operation was set up in 2014.
Of these 216 are dead, 76 are politicians, both national and local figures, 43 are from the music industry, 135 from TV, film or radio and seven from the world of sport. The cases include recent high-profile convictions, including Rolf Harris, Gary Glitter and Max Clifford.
Hundreds of institutions have been identified by victims of non-recent abuse as places where their abuse took place. These include 154 schools, 75 children’s homes, 40 religious institutions, 14 medical establishments, 11 community groups, nine prisons or young offender institutions, nine sports venues and 28 other places including military establishments.
Bailey warned that the number of victims could run into the hundreds of thousands, and called for much more support for survivors of child abuse. He said he believed that the enormous increase in reports of all types of child sexual abuse – which have risen by 71% since 2012 to 116,000 reports this year – was not just down to more victims coming forward.
Instead, Bailey warned that the internet was creating the opportunity for more abuse to take place, and said live-streaming of child abuse on mobile phones was the next challenge facing law enforcers.
Bailey said the number of reports of abuse, both by adults of historical abuse, and by children today, was increasing on a daily basis, and the figures released on Wednesday were just a snapshot of the challenge faced by the police and society as a whole.
He supported calls for much more funding for victims of child abuse. “The government has allocated millions of pounds to provide additional support, but I am not sure that is going to be enough. We are talking about hundreds of thousands of victims,” he said.
Of the 116,000 reports of child sexual abuse this year, 52,446 are allegations of sexual abuse in the past, some involving cases going back decades. This amounts to a 166% increase in reports of non-recent abuse, said Bailey.
Detectives on Operation Hydrant are coordinating the many investigations into non-recent abuse involving both high-profile individuals and institutions, from a hub in Sheffield.
A team from Operation Hydrant is liaising with Justice Goddard to support the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse.
Each of the 1,433 suspects has been put into a major crime database, which is cross referenced to ensure that no inquires are being duplicated and to identify suspects whose offending crossed borders. So far 30 individuals have been identified in one or more of the investigations.
Bailey said the figures were stark. “This year I am anticipating an estimated 116,000 reports of child sexual abuse will be received, that is a 71% increase since 2012, so it gives you some idea of the scale of this.
“What we are seeing is an absolutely unprecedented increase in the number of reports that are coming forward. That has brought about a step-change in the way the police service has had to deal with this. We are rising to and meeting the challenge, this is what Operation Hydrant is about.”
Bailey said the Hydrant team was working to create a database which would try to ensure that the failures of the past – as identified in the Jimmy Savile case – would not be repeated.
During the investigation of the late Radio 1 DJ it emerged that intelligence and information, including reports of abuse, were buried in the system – in some cases to prevent leaks – which meant when individual police forces with their own allegations checked the national police computer database his name did not come up.
“One of our primary objectives is to make sure where we get intelligence and where we get evidence of abuse it is being coordinated so we don’t make those mistakes. That particular case showed mistakes were made and he was able to go on and continue further abusing. The whole idea is that we don’t make those mistakes again,” he said.
Bailey said everyone from teachers, GPs, parents and wider society had a duty to look out for signs of abuse. He said: “We face a massive challenge in terms of resources, time and expertise to balance offering routes of justice for those who suffered in the past while safeguarding and protecting children in a vulnerable position today.”
Sheila Taylor, from the national working group on child sexual exploitation, said a massive public health campaign was needed to address the scale of child abuse within society.
John Brown from the NSPCC said the failure to support victims amount to a public health problem. “That is the issue. We are not helping children and adult victims to recover and there are huge costs to society, there are economic considerations and individual psychiatric costs.”
Tom Watson, the Labour MP whose claims made in the Commons that there was a paedophile network linked to parliament triggered a Scotland Yard investigation, said: “The sheer number of allegations just shows why there should be a dedicated national police response to child abuse inquiries. Intelligence gathering and data sharing will be far easier were there to be a dedicated team comprising of specialists from around the country.
“We are only just beginning to understand how as a country, over many generations, we managed to turn a blind eye to Britain’s child abuse scandal. The survivors deserve justice and future generations require greater protection.”
Gabrielle Shaw, chief executive of the National Association for People Abused in Childhood (Napac), said: “The scale and scope of sexual abuse of children committed in the past can often seem overwhelming. What these figures from the National Police Chiefs’ Council do is to provide some degree of measure of the issue.
“And what a measure it is; prolific offenders from all spheres of society, thinking they were untouchable, abusing children and the most vulnerable in settings where they should have been safest , including schools, care facilities and religious institutions.”
National Mass Child Abuse Rallies set to choke UK Cities next weekend.
On Saturday 11th April 2015 in many of the major cities of the UK, mass rallies and peaceful assemblies are set to take place. Thousands are expected to gather on this day to mke their voice heard over the fact that, after THREE WHOLE MONTHS SINCE DISCLOSURE, not one single senior, or junior, politician out of the 24 currently standing accused of serious child sexual offences has been arrested or questioned.
Simon Danczak MP, exasperated and frustrated by the lack of dialogue and action from the Prime Minister on the subject warned sex abuse survivors could turn to “direct act ion” as a stalled-inquiry fades into “complete disarray”.
On the 5th January 2015, at the reopening of Parliament and on the day of the second reading of The Serious Crime Bill, campaigner and activist joe public staged a one man awareness raising campaign of Direct Action outside the Gates of Parliament. Using visually high impact clothing and banners he appeared right at the moment that Prime Minister David Cameron passed by on his morning walk to Parliament. Joe protest was silent and peaceful however Mr Cameron could not avoid the very public message. (see video below)
The Prime Minster appeared agitated by this unique and clever use of freedom of expression in protesting on his first day back to work, especially on the day of the second reading of the Serious Crime Bill and after looking at the progress, or lack of it, he has made since the disclosure by John Mann MP, with regard to seeing these, now 24, suspected paedophile MP’s apprehended, it is hardly surprising why.
The fact is that the evidence is starting to show that David Cameron, Conservative Party Leader and at present Prime Minister (although he is fast becoming known as the #paedominister), is actively attempting to stifle and derail any Inquiry, be it Criminal or Statutory, into these allegations. That is a criminal offence.. It is called obstructing a criminal investigation.
Of course this is not the first time the Prime Minister of the UK has been passed a list of these names. On the 7th November 2012, on the This Morning Show, presenter Phillip Schofield handed a list of the same names to him live on the show.
Cameron declined at that time to even accept the list stating preposterously that
“There is a danger, if we’re not careful, that this can turn into a sort of witch-hunt, particularly against people who are gay.” and then compounding the outrageous statement further by adding
“I do think it’s very important that anyone who’s got any information about any paedophile no matter how high up in the country or whether they are alive or dead, go to the police”
Since the latter statement only dead Members of Parliament have been, and are currently still being, investigated and as we all no you cannot arrest a dead man, nor can you question one. As for the remained of the list, those serving, former, but most importantly, alive MP’s have not been questioned nor have they been arrested.
The refusal to take the list from Phillip Schofield (click image below for full This Morning video and Telegraph news article) and the response given to the questioning put forward by Phillip, were the first real sign that David Cameron was about to begin protecting those suspect of these most heinous of crimes, from prosecution and Justice. It was begining to look like David Cameron was apologising for the paedophiles that were lurking withing the corridors of Westmenister and Parliament.
Of course, David Cameron could not evade taking the, now extended, list from John Mann MP, but again the lack of action was apparent.
A formal Inquiry was recommended by the Home Secretary who immediately appointed Establishment figure Baroness Butler Sloss to chair it. A Public outcry ensued due to her obvious connections to one of the alleged abusers, the now deceased MP Leon Brittan.
Enter the second choice, Fiona Wolfe former Lord Mayor of London to yet another outcry from the public due to her Establ;ishment connections. It was becoming very apparent to the Public at this time (who are not as stupid as the Politicians may like to think) that there was a concerted attempt to control the Inquiry from the top down. A usual tactic for any established corrupt government.
On the 14th January 2015 in Parliament a meeting was held involving John Mann Mp, Simon Danczuk, Many survivors of the alleged child abuse and hundereds of members of the public, along with legal teams and campaigners to discuss the direction of the Inquiry and how it should proceed. It was attended by the panel appointed to the Board. Their intent was clear and that was to do what Cameron had promised but had failed to deliver, and that was to ‘leave no stone unturned’ in the quest for justice for the, now adult, child victims,
The Home Secretary’s response was to disband the panel.
Are you seeing a pattern emerging yet?.
In a passionate and hard hitting monologue outside Parliament during the CSA meeting camapigner joe public again made it transparent for the general public. Having evidence that MP’s, at this time, are in fact IMMUNE from even questioning on matters like these let alone arrest due to a European Act of Parliament being used to circumnavigate the legal process. Yes indeed the legislation actually puts UK Members of Parliament above the law.
They are IMMUNE from LEGAL PROCEEDINGS. Joe explains it clearly and concisely to the public below.
As police investigations continued to ‘plod’ along slowly into the new year it became more and more apparent to the public, campaigners, survivors and by now a large faction of supporting MP’s that The Official Secrets Act was being cited by many former, and serving, police officers and Special Branch officers.
It was being cited as stopping those officials from speaking out about criminal investigations that they were personally involved in, or knew of and that implicated senior British politicians in CHILD RAPE, TORTURE and MURDER. Those investigations were being closed down and the police officers involved threatened with imprisonment if they spoke out.
John Mann MP tabled a late night motion in the House of Commons in February with a Bill to amend the Official Secrets Act accordingly so as to allow any witness and anyone with information regarding the alleged child abuse network within Parliament to speak out PUBLICLY without fear of arrest and prosecution under the Official Secrets Act. This amendment was aimed SPECIFICALLY at tackling the stumbling block of the Official Secrets Act relating to it’s use to stifle witness to historic and currnet child abuse cases linked to PARLIAMENT.
That amendement incredibly, or maybe not so, was voted down by almost the ENTIRE Conservative Party (254) and and a substancial amount of Liberal Democrats (40). A complete list of all the MP’s, from all political parties that voted against the amendment proposed by John Mann can be found by clicking the Exaro image below. This MP’s are a disgrace and have failed our children is such a tragic way that they should ALL be removed from office as ‘posing a signifcant risk of future harm to children’. Ironically the same charge normally levelled at loving parents by the Social Services which allows them to steal the children in the first bloody place!. They should hang their heads in shame. They disgust this writer and the majority of the British public.
John Mann was quoted as saying
“My amendment would have given immunity from prosecuting only to historical incidences of child abuse” and it is true. It would have done.
It beggars belief that the amendment could have been voted down. Beggars belief that is unless you see that most of those who voted against would have done so under pressure from the Whips, the Whips who do the Prime Ministers strong arming. So again all roads lead back to Cameron. One should also question why a reading and vote of this magnitude was held so late at night and with hardly ANY media coverage or anouncement.
Why would David Cameron and Nick Clegg force their party faithful into voting down an amendment that would have seen all these former and serving officers speaking out about who suppressed, stifled and shut down these investigatiuons. It is clear that these investigations were shut down by THE PERPETRATORS THEMSELVES and those apologists who covered up for the crimes.
who supported John Mann’s amendment pressed Cameron further and finally brought into the glaring light of day David Cameron’s stance on the matter of investigating child abuse allegations leveled at Members of Parliament when he asked for a ‘cast iron guarantee’ from the Prime Minister that whistle blowers with knowledge of cover ups are given full whistle blower protections ie; that they are not prosecuted using The Official Secrets Act.,
Prime Minister David Cameron’s response was staggering and is the clearest indiction to date that he, and other senior ranking MP’s such as Theresa May who also voted against the amendment., have absolutely no intention of assisting the hunt for these alleged child raping and murding MP’s and in fact is doing his level best to HINDER said investigations. Could this be because those alleged are their friends?. This writer thinks so
David Cameron stated
“I am absolutely clear about the fact that I DO NOT WANT ANYONE PROSECUTED for uncovering wrongdoings in such a way’…
In other words,...NO, he will not give a ‘cast iron guarantee‘ and is now going to hide behind the charade that he has no control over the Police and CPS in matters like these.
It’s happening: more US allies join the anti-dollar alliance
March 18, 2015
The United States government just went from “Please, baby, don’t leave me,” to frustrated threats and whining.
After the UK announced it will join new China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) as a founding member late last week, Germany, France and Italy decided yesterday to follow Britain’s lead and join as well.
Welcome to the beginning of the end of the US dollar’s domination. It’s happening.
For the past few decades America was the undisputed global economic and political superpower.
The entire world happily used the US dollar, and hence, the US banking system. More importantly, the world happily placed its trust in the US government.
But there’s a limit to how irresponsible, reckless, and threatening you can be. Eventually such behavior catches up to you.
That time has now come.
The US government is now drowning in debt that can never be repaid. The US government’s own numbers, in fact, estimate its level of insolvency at roughly $60 trillion.
This means that when you add up all the assets of the United States—every acre of land, every tank, every drone, every drop of oil in the strategic reserve… and subtract all the debt and liabilities, the result is MINUS $60 trillion.
That is the net worth of the United States government.
On top of that, the US government has chosen to use its once-trusted currency and banking system as weapons to blackmail the rest of the world.
FATCA (the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) is probably the best recent example.
FATCA’s provisions require every single bank in the world to jump into bed with the Internal Revenue Service and agree to all sorts of expensive, debilitating information-sharing agreements.
And any bank which dares to defy the US government gets effectively blackballed from the US banking system and subject to a 30% withholding tax.
On top of that, the US government has taken to slamming foreign banks with the most astonishing fines—$9 billion, for example, in the case of French Bank BNP Paribas.
BNP’s wrongdoing was conducting business with countries, like Cuba and Iran, that the US government doesn’t like.
Bear in mind, BNP is a French bank and broke no French law whatsoever.
Moreover, the business was done through its Swiss subsidiary, and they broke no Swiss law either.
That didn’t matter to Uncle Sam, which fined the bank $9 billion under threat of being kicked out of the US banking system.
Blackmail. Extortion. Intimidation. This isn’t the behavior of a trusted friend. It’s the behavior of an arrogant sociopath.
And the rest of the world is sick of it.
Other countries—even allied nations—see that times are changing. There are new players on the rise, and the US isn’t the only option anymore.
Increasingly they’re turning to China, who, by some metrics, is already the largest economy in the world.
And the US government can’t do anything about it.
This is happening now with increasing speed. It’s mainstream news everywhere: the US is being shunned by its allies for the new kid on the block.
This has major implications for the United States. History shows that when reserve currencies change, the losing country almost invariably goes through significant turmoil.
But here’s the thing—the world is changing. But it’s not coming to an end.
Yes, things will change dramatically in the West in the coming years.
The standard of living that was attainable in the US because of its economic dominance will diminish.
For cues, look to Europe to see how unsustainable policies unravel when you don’t have the backing of the world’s reserve currency.
But people who recognize and embrace these changes early will prosper, for there will be tremendous opportunities throughout this process.
Modern technology means that all of our lives don’t have to be trapped within one single bankrupt country.
You can move your savings abroad to safety.
You can structure your business and assets so that you keep more of your hard-earned income for yourself and your family.
You can seek out investment opportunities out there that aren’t subjected to chasing bubbles induced by world central banks.
You can plan ahead and establish an alternative residency in a safe and thriving place, and perhaps even qualify for a second passport.
Bottom line– the world is changing. We can’t stop the end of the dollar’s dominance. All we can control is how we react to it… and when.
This is a real opportunity. Either an opportunity to gain, or an opportunity to lose. The choice is ours to make.

7 People With Deep Connections To Jeffrey Epstein
Jeffrey Epstein is an American financier. He was employed at Bear Steams and went on to form his own company. In 2003, he made a big for New York magazine, the one that reported on the $27 million teenage Wolf of Wall Street, Mohammed Islam. He was outbid by Bruce Wasserstein, who paid $55m for the magazine.
In March, 2005, a woman contacted the police with concerns that her 14 year old daughter was taken to Epstein’s mansion where she was paid $300 to strip for him and give him a massage. Police started an investigation and searched Epstein’s home. They found that Epstein hired escorts on numerous occasions. They also found items in the trash that showed that he had sexual contact with girls under the age of 18. After pleading guilty to soliciting prostitutes, Epstein began serving his 18-month sentence; serving only 13 months. He is a registered sex offender.
In 2008, a Virginia woman had come forward with a $50m civil lawsuit against Epstein, alleging she was 16 years old when she was recruited to become Epstein’s massager. She claimed that he exposed himself and had sexual intercourses with her. He allegedly paid her $200.
In 2010, Epstein’s butler was sentenced to 18 months in jail for trying to sell a journal that had purportedly recorded Epstein’s activities.
In December, 2014, a lawsuit was filed in Florida against the United States for violations of the Crime Victim’s Rights Act and the following individuals may soon be accused of abating Epstein:
1. Alan Dershowitz
Alan Morton Dershowitz is an American lawyer, jurist, author, and political commentator. He is a prominent scholar on United States constitutional law and criminal law. He defended Epstein in 2010.
2. Prince Andrew
Prince Andrew, Duke of York is the second son and third child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. In the court case filed in December, 2014 it is alleged that the Duke of York was one of the men who had had sex with the plaintiff while she was underage. Teenager sex slave Virgina Wolff has come forward saying that she was paid by Epstein to have sex with the Duke of York. Prince Andrew also holidayed with Epstein in Thailand in 2001 and was snapped surrounded by topless women on a yacht.
3. Bill Clinton
According to the court records, Clinton flew with Epstein aboard the latter’s private jet from 2002 to 2005 quite frequently, the year news of the police investigation of Epstein was first reported. Lawyers were able to obtain Epstein’s computerized phone directory, which included e-mail addresses for Clinton along with 21 phone numbers, including those for his assistant (Doug Band). He reportedly hasn’t cut ties with the women he met during his trips with Epstein, he invited one woman who was used to store pictures of the underage girls.
4. Kevin Spacey
Epstein reportedly flew actor Kevin Spacey on his private jet as part of a charitable endeavour. Was it a charitable endeavour? Can we believe that someone as guilty as Epstein could have charity in mind?
5. Chris Tucker
Epstein also reportedly flew Rush Hour actor and comedian Chris Tucker to Africa on his private jet as part of a charitable endeavour. I hate to think of what happened next.
6. Ghislaine Maxwell
It was Ghislaine Maxwell who, in 1998, recruited the 15-year-old Virginia Roberts to work as Epstein’s ‘masseuse’. Ghislaine Maxwell, is the glamorous daughter of the late, disgraced newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell. She and Epstein were inseparable at one point. There was talk first of marriage, then it was said that they were like ‘an old married couple’, but that Epstein would not marry her.
7. Alfredo Rodriguez
On June 18, 2010, Epstein’s former butler, Alfredo Rodriguez, was sentenced to 18 months in jail for trying to sell a journal that he said recorded Epstein’s activities. Special Agent Christina Pryor reviewed the material and agreed it was information that was incriminating to Epstein.
CRIMINALS could have their convictions overturned after it was revealed four judges had been watching porn on court computers.
Three of the judges were removed from office while a fourth resigned over the scandal reported The Telegraph UK.
The Judicial Conduct Investigations Office (JCIO) would not say where the four male judges, who worked in criminal, county and immigration courts, had been viewing the pornographic material and if it was during hearings or elsewhere in court buildings.
But this could open up a door for criminals to have their convictions overturned if the investigation reveals that the judges were distracted from a case and key evidence because they were secretly watching porn.
The judges were revealed to be immigration judge Warren L Grant who The Guardian reported was still working as a solicitor.
The UK Telegraph reported a statement from Grant which said, “I do not wish to comment save to say that for some years before, and during, the period covered by the conduct which formed the subject of the complaint laid against me I was suffering from severe and undiagnosed depression.”
District judge Timothy Bowles was also identified and sat at Romford county court.
Judge Peter Bullock was also named along with part-time judge Andrew Maw who sat at Lincoln county court and who resigned last year when he was 65.
It is not believed that the four judges were exchanging images or linked to each other in any way.
A statement released by the JCIO said, “The lord chancellor [the justice secretary, Chris Grayling] and the lord chief justice [Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd] were satisfied that the material did not include images of children or any other illegal content, but concluded that this was an inexcusable misuse of their judicial IT accounts and wholly unacceptable conduct for a judicial office-holder”.
The JCIO declined to say whether the pictures had been discovered during a routine internal audit of computer files or through a different procedure.
David Cameron Refuses To Release Historic Files On Child Abuse
In a terrible turn of events, it has emerged that Prime Minister David Cameron and his deputy, Nick Clegg has been trying to block significant materials outlining child abuse at government level.
New reports confirm that documents prepared by the Establishment, highlight the extent to which the government knew about the late paedophile and MP Cyril Smith’s crimes against children. Despite a Freedom of Information request made by the Daily Mail asking for the release of the 19 page dossier, the government dragged its feet on the matter and refused to release the document. The newspaper complained to the Information Commissioner’s Office, which ruled that the Cabinet Office had broken the law by failing to respond to the original request.
The Cabinet Office, faced with the threat of High Court action, submitted and released the document to the paper.
Even more concerning still is the Cabinet’s continued insistence on hiding information relating to child abuse within government, which is clearly of public interest. Four new historic files have come to light, however the Cabinet Office has refused to share even the names of these files, which has left survivors and victims’ families feeling disgusted by the government’s clandestine behaviour.
The Prime Minister should tread carefully. Having called out social work professionals for failing to report child abuse, and currently threatening them with a five year prison sentence if they fail to do so, he is likely to find himself being thrust under the legislative train by the media and members of the public with longer memories it would seem, than his own. Having also told the nation to its face that a VIP paedophile ring was nothing short of a conspiracy theory, he may have to eat his words, and a great deal of humble pie, if the four files he is currently refusing to reveal happen to document wide scale abuse, or the suggestion of it, within government circles.
The Statutory Inquiry into Child Abuse must make this area of their investigation a priority. It may well be the source of the trouble. This week we wrote an article on what the Inquiry may wish to do in order to build trust amongst survivors and members of the public. We would include the need to carry out a full investigation into central government’s part to play in covering up child abuse, facilitating it and engaging in this terrible crime.
That investigation must be carried out swiftly and with full and unfettered access to all relevant documentation. Mrs Goddard must have the stomach for this imperative. And she should start by demanding the immediate release of the four new files.

Martin Armstrong Warns “The Tide Is Turning Against The Banks”
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 03/05/2015 16:23 -0500
The tide is turning against the banks. We will see more and more corporations turn away from the banks as advisory entities. They just cannot be trusted when they are also the market-makers making commissions/spreads on the trading that are totally undisclosed. The day of the banks is coming to an end. It looks more like the next downturn will drive the spike right through their hearts. Just maybe, we may get back to the way its should be – relationship business, not transactional where they have the incentive to manipulate markets for the quick buck and front-run clients.
* * *
The biggest problem we have with central banks is that they are run by academics with ZERO real world experience. This applies not just at the Fed, but most central banks with the lone exception of Bank of China. The greatest danger this presents is that the money-center banks manipulate the central bankers during states of financial panic and they who are so frightened, they will do whatever the money-center banks tell them
In the USA, there is nobody who would investigate the dark corners of the Federal Reserve being manipulated by the NY bankers who walk on water without ice.
Bank of England Under Investigation for being TOO Friendly with Banks
However, the system is more open in Britain where the bankers do not control the courts as they do in New York City.
Consequently, the Bank of England (BoE) is now being investigated by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) for being “too” friendly with the money-center banks during the crisis of 2008.
Last year, the BoE was cleared of “improper conduct” in the currency market manipulation allegations of the money-center banks. Nevertheless, major corporations are starting to wise-up to TRANSACTIONAL banking. A light is starting to go on that by no means can you go to these clowns for corporate hedging and advice for they will ALWAYS rig the game to make as much profit on the trading scalping clients until they bleed.
So while in the USA the banks can still bribe Congress to repeal Dodd-Frank and open the gates to money falling once again from heaven, that is not the case OUTSIDE the USA. Even the movie the FORECASTER is being shown around the world except the USA because of the elite control of the bankers who tell the Fed what to do and when, the Justice Department, and New York Federal Judges protect them every chance they get. We haveNOBODY outside of their control to investigate anything.
Britain’s Serious Fraud Office’s investigators are now probing the central bank for possible fraud related to liquidity auctions between 2007 and 2008. During the financial crisis, the BoE invited banks to borrow money from the central bank, in exchange for collateral. This was conducted through a series of “liquidity auctions” where the funds were intended to prevent the banks collapsing. The banks always warn that there will be a complete collapse of the financial system unless their losses are covered.
The SFO is looking into the bankers’ “conduct” that was connected to these liquidity auctions. This is the criminal investigative agency that is conducting the probe of the BoE.Being investigated for “conduct” issues can be a very wide range from price fixing and handing the government the worse collateral possible (FRAUD) to the leaking of confidential information for personal gain.

We have had tremendous constructive feedback and compliments in relation to the “Income Tax School” that we facilitated yesterday. We had People (attendees) obviously from this/our own Island, and People that hailed from England and Germany. Prior to the School, we had interest from the People of Scotland, Wales, England, America, Canada, New Zealand and Australia, that expressed wishes to be there, but could not make it (maybe another time?).
Obviously we made some very startling revelations on the day in relation to “Income Tax”. One of these relevations came with the close and deliberate scrutiny and examination we gave in relation to the word “Employment”.
We examined the Legal meaning of the word, in that it is defined as “The Relationship Between Master and Servant”. Some People were initially shocked at this, which we were shocked at, but it did put into context, much of the material of the day.
Perhaps what shocked most People though, were the recordings of “Revenue Officers” being openly interviewed and questioned, and the ease at which such calls were made. Might we add: All calls were made and recorded for training and quality purposes only, and no Revenue Officer was intentionally hurt or harmed in the making of such calls.
A few of the attendees have asked us to do another “Income Tax School” … as we informed the People on the day, we have a whole lot more information and education to divest. Before we agree to run another “Income Tax School” … we need to gague what interest there may be in it.
Therefore we would appreciate you, the reader, letting us know your interest in attending such a School. Please send us a quick email confirming “Yeah” or “Nay”, and let us know briefly, what you/ye might expect from such a School.
As a final note … we are progressing with the production of a book in relation to “Income Tax” … and have provisionally entitled it “Income Tax Sc*m” … depending on progress, we are toying with the idea of launching the book as part of an Income Tax School.
For those that did attend and support the School we thank you, and would remind you, that there is some serious study ahead of you all, with some very serious decisions to be made that should not be made lightly (you know what we mean) ; – ).
FINALLY : All information is friendly.
Let us know if yer up for another School.
Take care of each other, the best for now,
Des: of The Common Law Society.
Hookers And Blow: How Changing The Definition Of GDP Officially Jumped The Shark
Submitted by Tyler Durden
A year ago it was the US which first “boosted” America’s GDP by $500 billion – literally out of thin air – when it arbitrarily decided to include “intangibles” to the components that ‘make up’ GDP (in the process cutting over 5% from the US Debt/GDP ratio). Then Spain joined the fray. Then Greece. Then the UK. Then Nigeria, which showed those deveoped Keynesian basket cases how it is really done, when it doubled the size of its GDP overnight when it decided to change the base year of its GDP calculations. Now it is Italy’s turn, and like everything else Italy does, this latest “revision” of the definition of GDP easily wins in the style points category. As Bloomberg reports, “Italy will include prostitution and illegal drug sales in the gross domestic product calculation this year.” Yup: blow and hookers. And that, ladies and gents, how it’s done.
Alas for Keynesian economists everywhere, since this “adjustment” largely shows that what one includes in GDP is now absolutely meaningless and for lack of a better word, a joke, it also means that the core concept of economic growth measurement has now officially jumped the shark.
But at least one will get a laugh out of the Italian GDP line items for hookers and blow. Bloomberg has the full story:
Drugs, prostitution and smuggling will be part of GDP as of 2014 and prior-year figures will be adjusted to reflect the change in methodology, the Istat national statistics office said today. The revision was made to comply with European Union rules, it said.
Renzi, 39, is committed to narrowing Italy’s deficit to 2.6 percent of GDP this year, a task that’s easier if output is boosted by portions of the underground economy that previously went uncounted. Four recessions in the last 13 years left Italy’s GDP at 1.56 trillion euros ($2.13 trillion) last year, 2 percent lower than in 2001 after adjusting for inflation.
“Even if the impact is hard to quantify, it’s obvious it will have a positive impact on GDP,” said Giuseppe Di Taranto, economist and professor of financial history at Rome’s Luiss University. “Therefore Renzi will have a greater margin this year to spend” without breaching the deficit limit, he said.
And that’s what it is all about: literally making numbers up allowing the government to spend even more money it doesn’t have on ridiculous political schemes, kickbacks, crony deals and corruption, and then when the people start to riot, blaming it all on “austerity.”
REDFLEX TRAFFIC SYSTEMS VIDEO PLAYLIST
Australian firm caught in US bribe scandal
(Cincinnati judge orders all speed cameras confiscated, manufacturer held in contempt -‐ “In a recent court hearing, Judge Robert Ruehlman ordered them not only to be shut off but to be impounded -‐ taken off the streets for good. The ruling comes as a result of a contentious legal battle over the speed cameras. Both sides of the case were back before Ruehlman during a contempt hearing June 27, “where the judge ruled that Elmwood Place and the speed camera contractor Optotraffic were in contempt of court,” WLWT reported.
Contempt of court Ruehlman found in March that the speed cameras were unconstitutional, essentially then ordering them shut down, along with the speed ticket program. He also ruled that outstanding tickets issued as a result of the system did not have to be paid.”. Admin)
THE US arm of Australian red light camera operator Redflex Holdings Group is embroiled in a corruption scandal in Chicago, with a former city official facing a 10-year prison sentence after allegedly being lavished with cash, a condominium, hotel stays and golf games.
US government prosecutors allege John Bills, the former managing deputy commissioner of Chicago’s transportation department, pocketed benefits totalling hundreds of thousands of dollars to steer $US124 million ($A134.16 million) in city contracts to Arizona-based Redflex Traffic Systems Inc.
Prosecutors declined to say if current or former Redflex employees will be charged when the probe is completed. However, the company is not accused of any wrongdoing.
“The investigation is continuing, but I can’t be specific as to who or what that may involve,” Randall Samborn, spokesperson for the US Attorney for the northern district of Illinois, told AAP on Thursday.
Redflex’s global headquarters is in Melbourne.
The indictment against Bills, a 52-year-old Chicago resident and 32-year City of Chicago employee, alleges he used his influence to help Redflex win contracts.
Prosecutors have granted immunity to a former Redflex employee, codenamed “CS1″, who allegedly worked closely with Bills.
CS1 and others at Redflex allegedly paid for at least $US23,000 worth of hotels, car rentals, meals, golf games and other personal items for Bills.
“According to individuals at Redflex, the Chicago contract was the most important contract for the company, both because of the revenues it generated as well as the name recognition it gave to Redflex,” the criminal complaint reads.
“By 2010, the Chicago red light program was the largest red light camera program in the United States and encompassed 20 per cent of the total camera systems that Redflex operated in the US.”
Another key figure in the investigation is a friend of Bills, named in court papers as Individual A.
On Bills’ suggestion, Individual A was hired by Redflex as its “Chicago customer liaison” and paid more than $US2 million in salary, bonuses and commissions, according to prosecutors.
CS1 told investigators he and his superiors “had explicit conversations about Individual A serving as a conduit to get money to Bills in return for Bills’ help in getting Redflex the City of Chicago contract, and for Bills’ help in ensuring that Redflex’s contract would potentially be expanded and renewed in the future”.
Individual A, between 2006 to 2011, withdrew more than $US643,000 in cash and prosecutors allege Bills and his wife made major cash bank deposits or purchases, including paying for a Mercedes-Benz convertible, a boat and at least 35 trips.
Prosecutors also allege Bills paid his divorce lawyer in cash and used $US16,000 in money orders to pay his girlfriend’s mortgage.
When Bills retired in 2011, he allegedly “made it known” to CS1 and other Redflex employees he wanted a job with Redflex.
Redflex allegedly arranged for Bills to get a job with a company funded by Redflex.
Once the company hired Bills, Redflex allegedly increased its monthly contribution to the company to help pay Bills’ salary.
Bills was arrested on a federal bribery charge in Chicago on Wednesday.
His lawyer, Nishay Sanan, denied Bills had taken bribes and claimed Redflex was trying to make Bills the scapegoat.
Redflex, in a statement, said it had “fully co-operated with the authorities” and after an internal investigation “announced new leadership, new policies and a line between our past and today’s Redflex”.
Barclays agreed to a $280m (£167m) settlement with the US Federal Housing and Finance Authority (FHFA).
The agreement settles claims by the FHFA that Barclays misled US mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac during the housing crisis.
The settlement involves two separate suits brought by the FHFA.
“We are pleased to have resolved this matter,” said Barclays in a statement, adding that the settlement will not impact its earnings.
The FHFA has filed a total of 18 lawsuits over $200bn of mortgage-backed securities sold during the height of the housing bubble.
It has settled 13 of those lawsuits, most notably with Bank of America, which agreed to pay $9bn, and with JP Morgan Chase, which agreed to a $4bn settlement.
