Paul Craig Roberts -- The Dying Institutions Of Western Civilization

The Dying Institutions Of Western Civilization



nothing is left

Paul Craig Roberts


Judiciary Branch Has Self-Abolished

The US no longer has a judiciary. This former branch of government has transitioned into an enabler of executive branch fascism.

Privacy is a civil liberty protected by the US Constitution. The Constitution relies on courts to enforce its prohibitions against intrusive government, but if the executive branch claims (no proof required) “national security,” courts kiss the Constitution good-bye.

Federal judges are chosen by the executive branch. The senate can refuse to confirm, but that is rare. The executive branch chooses judges who are friendly to executive power. This is especially the case for the appeals courts and the Supreme Court. The Justice (sic) Department keeps tabs on district court judges who rule against the government, and these judges don’t make it to the higher courts. The result over time is to erode civil liberty.

Paul Craig Roberts -- Goon Thug Murderer Uses VirTra Systems To Train Cops How To Murder

Goon Thug Murderer Uses VirTra Systems To Train Cops How To Murder

 
Goon Thug Murderer Uses VirTra Systems To Train Cops How To Murder

The training works by jolting cops with painful electrical shocks when they hesitate to shoot.
The justification for inculcating trigger-happiness is that the alternative is the “dire consequence” that the hesitation required for the cop to comprehend the situation could result in the cop’s death. The training assumes that there is no “dire consequence” to the cop murdering an unarmed innocent citizen.

Financial Times Calls For Abolishing Cash. “To Give More Power to Central Banks”

Eliminating physical currency necessary to give central banks more power

The Financial Times has published an anonymous article which calls for the abolition of cash in order to give central banks and governments more power.

Entitled The case for retiring another ‘barbarous relic’, the article laments the fact that people are stockpiling cash in anticipation of another economic collapse, a factor which is causing, “a lot of distortion to the economic system.”

“The existence of cash — a bearer instrument with a zero interest rate — limits central banks’ ability to stimulate a depressed economy. The worry is that people will change their deposits for cash if a central bank moves rates into negative territory,” states the article.

Complaining that cash cannot be tracked and traced, the writer argues that its abolition would, “make life easier for a government set on squeezing the informal economy out of existence.”

Abolishing cash would also give governments more power to lift taxes directly from people’s bank accounts, the author argues, noting how “Value added tax, for example, could be automatically levied — and reimbursed — in real time on transactions between liable bank accounts.”

The writer also calls for punishing people who use cash by making users “pay for the privilege of anonymity” so they will, “remain affected by monetary policy.” Dated bank notes would lose their value over time, while people would also be charged by banks for swapping electronic reserves for physical cash and vice versa.

The article echoes an argument made by Kenneth Rogoff, former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund, who has called for high denomination banks notes such as the €100 and €500 notes to be phased out of existence.

As we previously reported, Rogoff attended a meeting in London earlier this year where he met representatives from the Federal Reserve, the ECB as well as participants from the Swiss and Danish central banks. The issue of banning cash was at the forefront of the agenda.

Last year, Rogoff also called for “abolishing physical currency” in order to stop “tax evasion and illegal activity” as well as preventing people from withdrawing money when interest rates are close to zero.

The agenda to ban cash was also discussed at this year’s secretive Bilderberg Group meeting, which wasattended by the Financial Times’ chief economics commentator Martin Wolf.

Former Bank of England economist Jim Leaviss penned an article for the London Telegraph earlier this year in which he said a cashless society would only be achieved by “forcing everyone to spend only by electronic means from an account held at a government-run bank,” which would be, “monitored, or even directly controlled by the government.”

In the UK, banks are treating the withdrawal of cash in amounts as low as £5,000 as a suspicious activity, while in France, citizens will be banned from making cash payments over €1,000 euros from Tuesday onwards. The withdrawal and deposit of cash over the amount of €1,000 euros will also be subject to ID verification.

“There is no more egregious anti-liberty economic policy imaginable than banning cash,” writes Michael Krieger.

“Of course, if cash were involuntarily “ended,” there would be a surge in demand for physical gold and silver, which would then necessitate a ban on those items. Then the cycle of economic and financial tyranny would be complete, and crawling our way out of it, nearly impossible.”

Paul Craig Roberts -- Fight For Peace, Not For War


Fight For Peace, Not For War




Occupy Peace
Paul Craig Roberts

Commentators are bemoaning the death of the American peace movement. However, Gerald Celente is in the process of reviving it. You can participate on September 20 at High Noon in Kingston, New York, at the intersection of Crown and John Streets, the four most historic corners in the United States with pre-Revolutionary stone buildings on every corner. Many historic happenings occurred in Kingston.

This is not a mere rally or prayer meeting. Celente is giving a solution—an Action Plan. Go towww.occupypeace.us and become acquainted with the program.

You don’t have to worry about being beaten by goon thugs or tasered, or tear gassed, or arrested, because the Mayor of Kingston, Shayne Gallo, is supporting Occupy Peace. The streets are legally blocked off by the Mayor of Kingston.

This is what you will miss if you are not there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoiLW9m3i7I 

People are forever asking for solutions. Celente has solutions. Go and support them.

During the two days prior to Occupy Peace, the Trends Research Institute is holding a conference in Kingston that will examine the current trends unfolding in the world. I am speaking on Friday. The three days together provide a rare opportunity to both learn and to stand up for peace.

Paul Craig Roberts -- Guest column by Dave Kranzler

Integrity! We don’t need no stinkin’ integrity!
Dave Kranzler Asks: How Come Silver Is So Hard to Get When A Falling Price Indicates No
Demand for Silver?
According to the rigged futures market, no one wants silver, but according to silver suppliers no one can get their hands on silver.
The corruption of American financial and regulatory authorities is total There is no integrity anywhere in the US government. Washington is a gang of thieves and liars.
Are we living in Rome before the fall?
 

“We Just Can’t Get People To Stop Buying Silver”
I was exchanging emails with “Doc” of SilverDoctors.com and SD Bullion about market conditions today.  I wanted to share what he said about the silver market today:
That said, this market is insane right now.  We’re seeing an easy 8-10 fold increase in order volume and sales.   Premiums have moved big time in the past 24-48 hours…looking like my forecast that we could be looking at 2008 style premiums in the metals could be in the bag if we get any further price weakness below $14…

…things finally went nuts today.  Wholesalers and mints raising prices and extending delays by the hour, and to quote the head of one of the largest precious metals trade desks in the US:  “we just cant get people to stop buying silver!”

PCR Interviewed by RT on Stock Market Decline

PCR Interviewed by RT on Stock Market Decline






Publicado a 24/08/2015

On Monday, it was a Monday Meltdown. Global markets entered a new day of worldwide sell offs, extending last week’s downward plunge. Triggering the jitters was a sharp sell-off in Chinese shares which wiped out gains for the year as the Shanghai composite saw an 8.5 percent drop, the biggest percentage decline since 2007. Ameera David weighs in. 

Then, Ameera sits down with Paul Craig Roberts, Chairman of the Institute for Political Economy, to continue the conversation on the world-wide stock rout. 

After the break, Edward Harrison talks about China to Patrick Chovanec, Chief Strategist at Silver-crest Asset Management. Reports are that $800 billion dollars has left China in recent months. Patrick tells us whether the Chinese outflow is due to economic fundamentals or capital flight. 

And in The Big Deal, Ameera and Edward Harrison talk market and why stocks suffered huge losses.

Western Democracy Is An Endangered Species On Its Way To Extinction — Paul Craig Roberts



Western Democracy Is An Endangered Species On Its Way To Extinction



Paul Craig Roberts

The British Labour Party no longer represents the working class. Under UK prime minister Tony Blair, the Labour Party became a vassal of the One Percent. The result has been a rebellion in the ranks and the rise of Jeremy Corbyn, a principled Labourite intent on representing the people, a no-no in Western “democracies.”

Corbyn is too real for the Labour Party Blairites, who hope to be rewarded with similar nest eggs as Blair for representing the capitalist One Percent. So what is the corrupted Labour Party doing to prevent Corbyn’s election?

The answer is that it is denying the vote to Corbyn supporters. You can read the story here:

The illegal Egyptian military dictatorship that overthrew on Washington’s orders the first democratically elected government in Egyptian history has issued an edict prohibiting journalists from contradicting the military dictatorship. In brief, the dictatorship installed by Washington has outlawed facts.

US 4-Star Army General Abused by Fayetteville, GA, Goon Thug Police

Eighty-four year old general who walks with a cane was brutalized by goon thugs who justified their violence with a cock-and-bull story that the elderly general seized a young food delivery man by the throat and pinned him against a refrigerator and then assaulted the police. The general’s neighbors dispute the police story.

If it can happen to a white male 4-Star General, it can happen to you.

Paul Craig Roberts and Dave Kranzler -- Central Banks Have Become A Corrupting Force

Central Banks Have Become A Corrupting Force — Paul Craig Roberts and Dave Kranzler




Paul Craig Roberts and Dave Kranzler

Are we witnessing the corruption of central banks? Are we observing the money-creating powers of central banks being used to drive up prices in the stock market for the benefit of the mega-rich?

These questions came to mind when we learned that the central bank of Switzerland, the Swiss National Bank, purchased 3,300,000 shares of Apple stock in the first quarter of this year, adding 500,000 shares in the second quarter. Smart money would have been selling, not buying.

It turns out that the Swiss central bank, in addition to its Apple stock, holds very large equity positions, ranging from $250,000,000 to $637,000,000, in numerous US corporations — Exxon Mobil, Microsoft, Google, Johnson & Johnson, General Electric, Procter & Gamble, Verizon, AT&T, Pfizer, Chevron, Merck, Facebook, Pepsico, Coca Cola, Disney, Valeant, IBM, Gilead, Amazon.

Greece Is Under Foreign Occupation

Paul Craig Roberts

As I have emphasized since the beginning of the Greek “sovereign debt crisis,” the point of the orchestrated crisis is to loot Greece both of its assets and its sovereignty.

The looting plan has now been published. You can read about it here:

The 'Asset Development Plan' for Greece is out and it's all go for the privatization of the country. Hellenic sea ports, air ports, motorways, petroleum companies, water and gas supply, real estate, holiday resorts - it's all for sale.

Debt laden Greece has been forced to sell the family silver in an all too familiar tale with ancient history repeating itself.

The Hellenic Public Asset Development Fund has been published by German Green MEP Sven Giegold who said the Greek people "hardly know" what will be sold off and that they have "the right" to know.

The selling of Greek assets to raise $56 billion (€50bn) was demanded by Greece's creditors, the Troika. The document reveals that 66 percent of a gas distribution and processing firm will be sold to Azerbaijan; 35 percent of Greece's first oil refinery firm will be sold off along with 17 percent of its electricity distributor and 65 percent of gas distributor Depa.
