Lies, damn lies and funny lying

You are being lied to. Maybe this revelation isn’t really news, but what you don’t know is the scale of it and you certainly don’t know the consequence.

What I am talking about, in this case, is how the global economy really is doing.

Time and again I’ve pointed out the faults and the deliberate miscalculations we are feed through media. Basically nothing we have been told holds true. This is a small recap of things you should know and it is important that you do. Important because they will continue to lie to you, even when your city is burning and every market in the world is crashing they will continue to lie. You need to call this bluff otherwise our impending financial disaster will be followed by political disaster and quite possibly another world war.

The Romani is already targeted. Muslims too. Greedy oligarchs are also feeling the heat, although in their case it is partly a justified public rage. The real enemy, the class of übermenchen controlling our lives while lying about everything, hardly gets a nudge. See the enemy, see through the deceit, or doom us all.

Two examples:

Remember how the EU organized stress tests for commercial banks? An examination of the banks' disclosures indicates that some banks didn't provide as comprehensive a picture of their government-debt holdings as regulators claimed. Some banks excluded certain bonds, and many reduced the sums to account for "short" positions they held—facts that neither regulators nor most banks disclosed when the test results were published in late July 2010. Some banks' figures also were whittled down by accounting for "short" positions they held in various countries' debt. For example, if a bank held €100 million of Greek debt and €25 million of short positions in Greek debt, the gross figure was listed as €75 million.

So what does this mean?

Well as several examples reveal many banks are holding lots more debts that the test shows i.e. if any government/country defaults (or close to it) the problem for the banking sector and certain banks are a lot bigger than we were told. Media ignored this. Of course.

There is also another problem with this. Because if many big European banks holds, for example; Greek treasuries, it makes them less inclined to actually force out the bad investments in the light of day. This means that the hidden losses that are still not accounted for - comes to Greece in this example – will probably never be public knowledge. Until the real mayhem starts that is...

And finally the findings undermine the primary goal of the stress tests — namely, to reassure investors and bankers world-wide the soundness of Europe's financial system (This was actually the point. They are lying. Remember?).

We are already seeing warning signs that the costs of insuring many bank and government bonds against default in countries such as Portugal, Ireland, Greece and Italy have jumped above their pre-stress-test levels. This just months after the stress test was released.

We have also recently learned that Société Générale, a market-maker for Irish sovereign bonds on behalf of the National Treasury Management Agency, has suggested that Irish banks could default on a limited amount of "state-owned" debt after the government blanket guarantee expires on 29 September. Isn’t that special?

Another example of a similar cover-up we find in the housing market. And this goes for pretty much every country out there. We are meet by statements like “there is no bubble”, “things are picking up, people are borrowing and buying again”, “the numbers were better than expected”. All of this is lies. Many of them deliberate lies.

The banks are lying because many of them are buying and selling housing to and from themselves. Yeah, that’s right. They do this in part to cover their losses and in part to keep prices on the market up. This is certainly true for Britain, the US and in China, but rest assured, your country’s banks are in on this scam as well.

Politicians and central banks are lying because the housing market is probably the most important foundation of our modern Ponzi economy. If people aren’t borrowing and buying homes, the economy is screwed. But even more interesting the economy is resting on the notion that home prices will go up. The more we borrow and the more we spend, the better the economy. Or so the enemy class is telling us.

You haft to know that the unfortunate reality is that home prices cannot appreciate, over long periods of time, at a rate that exceeds the growth in income among the population. Because that is impossible. A mathematical impossibility. However they do lie to you saying that borrowed money is as good as earned money and as long as people pay back there are no worries.

They also lie to you ignoring the fact that, historically speaking, the price of a home has been about three times that of people’s annual income. This line of about three times our annual income, on average, has been true in every country and regardless of time in history. The ONLY time this hasn’t been true is during times maddening bubbles. Today, in most countries, this correlation between income and house prices is totally maddening. In Sweden and UK the cost for a home is over 9 times the annual salary. In the US over 8 times. And our masters want to increase this discrepancy even further.

These are just two of many examples of lies we are being told. There are many, many more. When you add them all together, even with a conservative and positive outlook, the only conclusion you can draw is that the world is only two steps away from the worst depression ever seen.

They know this. That is probably the biggest lie they don’t want you to see through. They, in part, told us about the problem when they threw trillions of dollars around in stimulus after stimulus. All the bail-outs and printing of money they conjured up were to “save us” from such a bad scenario. The problem is that in “saving us” they increased the Debt Mountains, they increased public ownership and increased the regulations and made - only - yet another ‘quick fix’. Another dose of heroin pumped into the financial system to keep it from convulsing. This while the underlying problems have continued to spread and increase.

Only the fact that there are trillions of derivatives out there with no value that could, and should, crash is a fact that should horrify you. I’ve seen calculations arguing that the sum is close to 100 trillion USD. If true this alone is enough to plummet us into a depression much worse than that of the 1930’s.

Take out a calculator. Take a look around. Compare markets; look at the Baltic Dry cargo index. Think for a moment about how things work. Take a close look at the Spanish housing market. Ask questions about how much, and were the Greek debts are.

When/if you do this you’ll soon realize that we are heading for a fall. A huge never ending crash of such magnitudes that anything before in history will be dwarfed by it.

This isn’t a conspiracy or an opinion. It is a mathematical and actual fact.

And when you come to this conclusion think about who is really responsible. Is it really pesky Muslims? Did really a bunch of gypsies do this to us? Are Jews really responsible? Did these problems really come from immigration? Are business owners the real culprits? Think with an open mind because the ones mentioned here (and probably some other group) will be blamed by many, and certainly by the elite. The elite is never wrong, there’s always someone else to blame. ‘Scape-goats will emerge. Don’t buy it. See through the lies so we don't repeat history... again...

Burning books is fun

I got to hand it to Pastor Terry Jones and his tiny, fringe evangelical church in Florida. Brilliant marketing, really. And as any connoisseur of the 1930’s knows; book burning is fun. Well to be honest that little Austrian painter and his followers wasn’t first with this hilarious stunt. Pretty much every conquering nation in history, alongside almost every government in history, has thrown knowledge on fiery heaps in one way or the other.

However, I cannot help being supportive in this case.

This has nothing to do with me despising the Islamic faith - which I do. And I am not supportive because of any Christian belief; I despise that sect as well. I believe all religions are highly stupid and bring out the worst in people. And I don't like people burning books, for whatever reason. Books are almost synonym to knowledge and if there is one thing this world need more of it is knowledge.

So why do I support these book burning idiots in Florida?

It’s simple. They have a right to. If they buy and burn 112 bibles, 58 Korans, 93 Bahavagita and hold marshmallows over burning Torahs, that’s their choice. I see no problem in this whatsoever.

This isn’t a fascist government forcing people to burn books. Its people making a choice. A stupid one, sure, but a choice nevertheless. It would be far worse if the American government stopped them. Then we would have a problem. Then we would have fascism. Burning a book isn’t automatically evil, fascist or totalitarian. It’s not even automatically, as in this case, anti-Islamic. If there were no choice and/or if they torched things under threat of violence from someone/government, well then things would be different.

Politically correct media, certain groups and governments want you to think that people burning books are evil, especially in a case like this. Not because book burning fools very well might be evil, no, it is because 'they' want you to want them to stop it.

But hold on and think for a moment.

What is really totalitarian and evil: people freely choosing to burn books or a government using force to stop them?

Another “I told you so”

That internet, the only democratic and free institution we have has been, and still is, under attack shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The Orwellian surveillance society is being implemented all over the world because if there is one thing politicians can agree upon, no matter what political party, it is the need to control information. How else can they control what we see, hear and read and consequently what we believe in and what we vote for?

In several articles on this blog I’ve pointed out that what we have seen so far is only the beginning. This exponential increase of internetfascism is directly proportional to “normal” laws and what is generally considered to be politically correct with an extra twist/plus added to the equation.

The extra ‘twist/plus’ comes from politicians having a different reason to impose the control grid - different to why they normally do things.

Normally they use laws or suggestions of new laws in order to maximize the number of votes and in this sense their reasoning isn’t automatically malevolent, only the consequence is.

However, when we look at Internet this isn't always true.

Laws, control-grids and roaming government super computers that keep tabs on the populace isn’t really about maximizing votes, albeit they do try to make it sound like it chasing after pedophiles, terrorists or whatnot. No, the main reason in this case is about control for the reason of control. They seek power for no other reason than the power itself.

This isn’t always deliberately planned, but every politician out there knows, at least subconsciously, that free and abundant flow of information is the greatest threat those in power have ever known.

And I don’t necessarily mean the big stuff; those tend to be revealed sooner or later. If they start a war on faulty grounds, accuse Jews of being malevolent greedy thieves that belong in ashtrays or if they make up stories about manmade global warming – those statements will, normally, be exposed. It may take time since those in power also control media or indoctrinate people to believe in the lies, but that’s all they may be able to do, buy time.

However, the smaller stuff; who’s taking bribes, who’s gay, which politician is unfaithful and similar have rarely been outed. You might think so because those stories do exist, but as anyone with any intellect knows such stories are only the tiny tip of a very huge ice-berg.

And even those that do get outed often get forgiveness through time. People tend to forget. And I don’t mean neo-Nazis worshiping Der Führer or communists revering Stalin. Just look at the murdering four-winged quagmire that was Ted “Chappaquiddick” Kennedy or the current leader of the Swedish Social Democrats. Politicians could, before internet, literarily get away with murder.

Today the tiniest mistake, one misguided sentence or any form of transgression can, and often will, be put out there for everyone to see, read and hear about. And this almost immediately. Worse still, the ones spreading such information cannot be controlled and anyone can be doing the spreading.

Politicians can buy every journalist, own every paper and have a total lock-down of society and still information will get out, be spread around and be commented on by millions of people all across the globe. They cannot threat, bribe, buy or control every grandma, student or organization with a computer.

This holds true even if (“WHEN”) their wet dream of an authoritarian controlled internet is imposed. There will always be renegades and contrary to what was before information doesn’t take months or even years to reach people, today it hardly take seconds.

So what to do?

They work in three ways to oppose this.

1. Make up stories about internet and scare people.
To scare people is one of the most effective ways to control the very same people. If we are afraid of a communist invasion, Muslims, terrorists or pedophiles we are far more likely to listen to those in power. They are there to protect and serve us, right? So who else should we turn to when one internet-based Muslimcommunistterrorist tries to rape our kids?

2. Make themselves out to be defenders of the very thing they hate so much.
This is also a very common thing for those in power to do. When we’re talking internet they say they want to protect the free word, help us get internet access, give free broadband to everyone and the only exception to this rule (se the number 1 above) is there to protect us and protect the free word.

3. Make every adversary into a suspect/criminal
Everyone against the control-grid will of course be pro-pedophilia. They will love terrorism. They are anarchists. They are thieves that only want free movies. They are all file-sharing youngsters with tin-foil hats. And so on. Sometimes those in power will take it one step further and not only claim certain things, but actually frame people for crimes they didn’t commit. I’ve said many times that it’s just a matter of time before famous hackers are outed as pedophiles; a spokesperson of Piratebay gets convicted of rape or any other number of made-ups to throw a shimmer of suspicion and darkness over all who oppose the power apparatus.

And lord and behold… the 39-year-old Australian spokesman of the whistleblower website Wikileaks is now under suspicion of rape. What are the odds eh?

I’m not saying he’s innocent, he may be guilty, but looking over the case so far it seems unlikely. But that’s secondary for those in power, and secondary to what I am talking about. You see our minds work in such a way that in a few months from now we will only remember “Wikileaks-spokesperson-rape”, and that’s it. Then there will be another case, and then another. Maybe a main contributor to Wikileaks is Muslim. Maybe Piratebay have been used, once, by a known terrorist. Maybe three pedophiles in London played cards with a sister to a niece to Wikileaks founder. You never know…

This is how the game is played and the further down this dark fascist abyss we go the more such stories will emerge. And if you don’t believe me, keep watching the news. I promise you all that stories like the ones mentioned will pop up ever more frequently as we close in on the biggest and worst economic crash in human history.
