This is what happens when the warning is ignored

In his 1796 Farewell address, George Washington, the First President of the United States, said: “Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all. … Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government. The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is, in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.”

THE CONSEQUENCES of ignoring that advice are painfully evident in this this week’s news:

The late Saudi foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, told John Kerry in 2014, ‘Daesh [ISIS] is our response to your support for the Da’wa – the Tehran-aligned Shia Islamist ruling party of Iraq’ after the city of Mosul fell to the US military offensive. In other words, the Saudis created ISIS in response to US intervention in the region that shifted the balance of power to Iran. According to a CIA document, the US approved of this plan and intended to use ISIS to topple Syrian President Assad. ZeroHedge 2016 Apr 20 (Story) (Cached)

In this discussion led by Ron Paul, we learn that the Saudis now admit they first created al-Qaeda and then ISIS. They did this in response to the US attack on Iraq, which gave a political advantage to Iran. Creating terrorist movements, they say, was a countermeasure to weaken their enemies and protect their interests in the region. But the plot thickens. The CIA followed the same strategy when it helped create the Mujahideen in Afghanistan to counter the 1979 Soviet invasion. The bigger picture here is that interventionism, regardless of who initiates it, almost always backfires and causes unintended consequences as bad or worse than those it is intended to avoid. All of this is related to the 28-page confidential report on Saudi connections to 9/11 that may soon be made public. Ron Paul Institute 2016 Apr 21 (Story)

Over the past week at the Hanford Nuclear facility in eastern Washington, 3,000 gallons of nuclear material leaked from a defective inner shell of a double-shell storage tank into its outer shell. The facility was built in 1943 to accommodate plutonium production for World War II. Despite assurances by the US department of Energy and the Washington State Department of Ecology that the leak poses no risk to the public, a former employee (who was the one who first reported the leak) says it is catastrophic.

Here are a few recent so-called hate crimes that turned out to be hoaxes: A gay preacher claimed that the staff at a Whole Foods store wrote ‘fag’ on his cake, but evidence from the surveillance camera indicates that he himself wrote it to draw attention to discrimination. Another example occurred at Kean University in New Jersey where a black student made death threats to all black students but later admitted she did it in order to generate enthusiasm for her racial-injustice rally.

Key West, Florida: Residents are hopping mad at the CDC, the FDA and Oxitec, the producer of GMO mosquitoes.

Michigan: A District Judge accepted charges against three state and local officials involved in the Flint water-pollution tragedy in which tens of thousands of people were poisoned.

Governor Rick Snyder has refused to resign but promised to drink Flint water for a month to prove it is safe. RT 2016 Apr 20 (Story)

The World Health Organization is calling for the destruction of the triple-strain, live-virus, oral, polio vaccine because it can cause polio. Last year, 100 cases of polio were reported, and 30 of them were caused by the vaccine. David Knight reports that authorities are trying to cover up the fact that the vaccine causes the disease it claims to cure. InfoWars 2016 Apr 19 (Story)

Here is another report on the fact that the 3-strain oral polio vaccine is a primary cause of polio. It is significant, however, in that it is released by a strongly pro-Big-Pharma publication. Even though it states the facts in the most pro-vaccine way possible (“Don’t worry, folks. We now have a better vaccine.”) the truth is in the story nevertheless: Within the last 10 years, there have been 725 cases of polio paralysis, and 90% of those were caused by the vaccine.

Deutsche Bank admitted it conspired to rig gold and silver prices. In addition to paying fines, the bank also agreed to expose others participating in the price-fixing scheme. Other banks have agreed to similar actions, so it appears that the conspiracy may be unwinding – at least at the inter-bank level.

In response to lawsuits filed by gold and silver traders, Deutsche Bank has reached financial settlements for manipulating gold and silver prices. While this is a step forward, it fails to address an even larger manipulation of gold prices, which is the practice of central banks ‘lending’ gold belonging to their governments to commercial banks, which then dump it on the open market to depress the price.

A report in The New York Times says that Saudi Arabia is threatening to sell off $750 billion in US bonds if Congress passes a bill that would allow 9/11 victims to sue foreign governments.

The documentary Salmon Confidential shows that the Canadian government is covering up the cause of a dwindling population of its Pacific Coast Salmon. It is caused by fish farms that keep salmon in pens. Fish farms breed pathogens that can spread rapidly and contaminate wild fish swimming nearby. This causes wild salmon to die from leukemia, retroviruses, brain tumors, and immune-system decay. All farm-raised fish, not just salmon, are fed a concoction of antibiotics and vitamins. Some are fed synthetic pigments to make up for the lack of natural flesh coloration due to an altered diet. Mercola posted 2016 Apr 16 (Story) (Cached)



News and commentaries that reveal historical facts and trends that place current events into perspective and make it possible to anticipate future events.


A team of Oregon State University experts found that blue-green algae contains a compound, called coibamide A, that cuts off the ability of cancer cells to communicate with blood vessels, causing cancer to die. It is effective against two of the most aggressive forms of the disease: brain tumors and triple-negative breast cancer. [It is fascinating to read how researchers, having found something in nature that works against cancer, immediately set out, not to grow the algae and mass-produce it, but to find out how it works so they can create a synthetic version in the laboratory. That’s because anything in nature cannot be patented, which means low profit. Synthetics, on the other hand, are patentable and can become the source of fantastic profit margins. That’s why nothing from nature, no matter how effective it is, will ever be approved by the pharmaceutical industry for cancer therapy. All of that becomes painfully obvious in this article.] DailyMail posted 2016 Apr 21 (Story) (Cached)

US: Last week, the Federal Reserve scheduled an unprecedented number of secret meetings, including an emergency meeting with Obama. Bank insolvency has surfaced once again, this time because of over-extended credit to oil companies. As many as 60% of the loans to these companies are about to go into default – as a result of depressed global oil prices. The author of this analysis believes there is little that the banks and the government can do now to prevent a total collapse of the system. He may be right, but we should not forget that depressed oil prices appear to be motivated, not by free-market competition, but by political intervention from Washington as an economic weapon against Russia and her allies. The outcome of these secret meetings, therefore, possibly could involve an end to low oil prices. Even that, however, will not solve the problem of bank insolvency – which, literally, is not solvable without tax subsidies – or allowing the corrupt banks to fail. Therefore, there is little doubt that the near future of the US will see bank bail-ins, negative interest rates, and an end to large-denomination US currency, all which will force Americans to keep their monetary wealth in bank accounts where they can be legally and easily plundered by banks to keep them in operation.

The Federal Reserve and FDIC issued a 19-page letter to Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JP Morgan Chase, claiming that the bank’s lack of a credible plan for winding down if the bank should fail poses a threat to ‘the financial stability of the United States’. Morgan Chase is the country’s largest bank and has $2 trillion in assets. Large as that may seem, it is frail support for its $51 trillion in derivatives. (Derivatives are bets on the future value of something else. They have no intrinsic value of their own.) That means a slump of only four percent in the market value of derivatives would cause Morgan to be bankrupt. [Keep in mind, however, that a ‘credible plan to unwind’ in the event of failure could include such mechanisms as negative interest rates, bail-outs, bail-ins, and other manifestations of legalized plunder. Don’t think for a second that the Federal Reserve is the White Hat in this story. It is merely insisting that all banks get their plans in place for the next big move.] Wall Street On Parade posted 2016 Apr 16 (Story) (Cached)

The IRS returned the tax return to a man in New Jersey because of an incorrect answer to one of the questions. In response to the question, “Do you have anyone dependent on you?” The man wrote: “9.5 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million crack heads, 3.4 million unemployable scroungers, 80,000 criminals in over 85 prisons plus 650 idiots in Washington.

The IRS stated that the answer he gave was unacceptable! The man responded back, “Who did I leave out?”

Seriously? Don’t we all know that Larry Silverstein committed the greatest insurance fraud in history on 9/11/2001?

Hello Ed. Thank you for writing such a great foreword to my book, Titanic; A Perfect Crime. The anniversary of Titanic’s demise is upon us. As I was reflecting on the grim fate of those who went down in the bitter-cold ocean that night, I recalled this cartoon commentary on our present time.


Titanic is full of intrigue. When she sank, sending 1,500 people to their watery graves, it was called an accident and an act of God. But, as you know, it was no accident. It was an act of Man – one man in particular, JP Morgan. It was the greatest insurance fraud in history.

I am delighted by the brisk sales of the book on the Reality Zone site. Thanks for giving it visibility.

Put me in charge of food stamps. No cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese, and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to inspections anytime, and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22-inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the “common good.”

Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary.

While you are on Gov’t subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov’t welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.
