London's Mayor says we should "Thank the Super Rich" - calls them "Tax Heroes" and compares to the "homeless and Irish travelers"

If you thought you had seen it all when it comes to sob stories of the "super rich" following the comparison of the criticisms of banker bonuses to the lynching of black people in the south by AIG's CEO in September, think again.

The latest groveling, inane defense of the "super rich" comes from none other than the gatekeeper of the largest oligarch whorehouse on planet earth. The Mayor of London, Mr. Boris Johnson.

Now I warn you, do not read the following Op-Ed on a full stomach. The vapid, nonsensical, Onion-like prose may very well induce fits of nausea and uncontrolled regurgitation.

This is quite frankly one of the worst things I have ever read in my life. It echoes like a sort of grandiose ass-kissing ritual one would have encountered in a Middle Age court from an aspiring manservant of the realm, desperately trying to rapidly advance a coupe of notches up the social strata of some decadent feudal kingdom.

Simply put, Boris Johnson should be ashamed to show his face in public after writing such disingenuous garbage.

Now for some excerpts from the UK Telegraph:

US Bullying at TPP Negotiations fights for Big Pharma profits, intellectual property rights and restricting the sale of generic drugs

TPP big pharma

Signs outside of TPP negotiations highlighting the bullying tactics and dishonesty of Stan McCoy of the US Trade Representatives Office.
"The world should stand up to the United States. US corporations are not more important than people's lives."

A key dispute in the TPP negotiations is the patents on pharmaceutical drugs and medical procedures. Long patents inflate the profits of the pharmaceutical industry by not allowing less expensive generic drugs on the market. This means that people around the world will not be able to afford critical, often life-saving, drugs and medical procedures. It also means that countries like Japan, Australia and New Zealand that have national health care systems will see the cost of healthcare rise to a breaking point, undermining some of the best health systems in the world.

In order for the US to get its way, Stan McCoy, Assistant US Trade Representative for Intellectual Property and Innovation, is chairing the meetings on intellectual properties and medicines. He has been using bullying tactics to force countries to agree to positions that will harm people in the countries negotiating the TPP, including the US.

"The US has adopted a strategy of exhaustion in its bullying of negotiators on the crucial intellectual property chapter to force countries to trade away health in the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement negotiations in Salt Lake City," according to Professor Jane Kelsey from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, who is monitoring the negotiations. "The US has stepped up its aggression as they move towards their 'end point' of the TPP ministerial meeting in Singapore from 7 to 10 December."

Keiser report: Iran not allowed to trade oil for gold under nuclear deal

In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss WTF in the UK as RBS slaughters SMEs and then robs their still-warm corpses; while over in China, the People's Bank has thrown a whole bunch of STFU at US Treasuries.

They discuss the implications of both oil being priced in yuan on the Shanghai futures exchange and Iran being prohibited from trading oil for gold under the P5+1 deal.

In the second half, Max interviews Alasdair Macleod of GoldMoney.com about 400 ounce London .995 gold bars being sent to Switzerland from Arab holders and melted down to 1 kilo .9999 bars, thus moving gold from the London standard, to the new better Chinese standard - suggesting we may be entering a post-petrodollar world. In which case, petrodollars could be flowing back into NY in pure dollar form to cause high inflation. And, finally, Max and Alasdair suggest that unless you rig gold markets, your forex and libor-rigging won't work.

Comment: Read John Perkins' book Confessions of an economic hit man, to see how financial terrorism works by the dominant countries. If sanctions doesn't help force a country to open up its resources for exploitation and if it insists on controlling its own money supply and trade in currencies other than the US enforced US dollar reserve currency, then the economic hit men change tactics.

And if all else fails and a country still resist being taken over economically then war is the last solution, just as we have seen in Iraq and Libya in recent years.

François Hollande: Always a zionist

Valérie Trierweiler, Hollande hosted by Shimon Peres and Benjamin Netanyahu (November 18, 2013).
François Hollande was elected president by cultivating ambiguity. Yet it was easy enough to read his previous statements to see full support for the State of Israel. The change he had announced to his constituents has not occurred. On the contrary there has been continuity with his predecessor. We cannot but note that France has gradually abandoned its policy of independence to stand alongside the United States and the last colonial state.

Some commentators have explained the French position in 5 +1 negotiations with Iran as dictated by Saudi Arabia, or through reference to the Jewishness of Hollande's Foreign Minister, Laurent Fabius. This ignores that French policy in the Middle East has profoundly changed in nine years.

It all started in 2004 with the break between Jacques Chirac and Bashar al-Assad. The Syrian President had promised his French counterpart to favour Total's tender. But when the French proposal reached the palace, it was so disadvantageous for the country that the president changed his mind. Furious, Jacques Chirac broke with Syria and presented Resolution 1559 to the Security Council .

'The train leaving for European paradise': New Ukranian mythology

Ukraine and EU integration

People attend a meeting to support EU integration at European square in Kiev, November 25, 2013.
The belief that today or tomorrow Ukrainians might be rewarded with quick access to the gates of a European paradise is one of the core myths promulgated by the ideologists of Ukrainian statehood.

The sudden decision of the Ukrainian government to shelve an association agreement with the EU, taken days before a largely-anticipated deal was due to be made at the Eastern Partnership summit in Vilnius, has sparked angry protests in Kiev and other major Ukrainian cities.

The ex-Soviet republic, located in the very heart of Eastern Europe with a territory larger than France, the land of the well-known writer Nikolay Gogol, famous gorilka, rare beauties and hundreds of miles of rich black soil is currently locked in a fresh outbreak of "identity crisis".

This is a new attempt to do some more mental exercise and more soul-searching to decide once and for all where to head: to the East or to the West.

This is a question that has already split Ukrainians many times in their country's turbulent history - both in the pre and post-independence period.

Comment: So like a draconian overlord, the EU expected Ukraine to submit and give all, yet offering nothing in return to Ukraine. As the article says:
No subsidies for the restructuring of the Ukrainian economy, no visa-free regime, and not even the slightest hint that one day Ukraine might be privileged enough to get the key to its own flat in the EU home.

So, it is not "predatory Russia", which has browbeaten President Yanukovich and forced him to turn down the EU proposal. Self-sufficient European bureaucracy has no one to blame but itself.
The EU just hoped that if Russia is demonised enough then Ukraine would bend over backwards. Of course with a little help from all the western NGO's that operate in Ukraine and who promote submission and enslavement to the western corporations democracy and freedom. The game of the psychopathic elite to the detriment of the common people.

Evils converging: Monsanto, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and global food dominance

tpp monsanto
"Control oil and you control nations," said US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in the 1970s. "Control food and you control the people."

Global food control has nearly been achieved, by reducing seed diversity with GMO (genetically modified) seeds that are distributed by only a few transnational corporations. But this agenda has been implemented at grave cost to our health; and if the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) passes, control over not just our food but our health, our environment and our financial system will be in the hands of transnational corporations.

Profits Before Populations

According to an Acres USA interview of plant pathologist Don Huber, Professor Emeritus at Purdue University, two modified traits account for practically all of the genetically modified crops grown in the world today. One involves insect resistance. The other, more disturbing modification involves insensitivity to glyphosate-based herbicides (plant-killing chemicals). Often known as Roundup after the best-selling Monsanto product of that name, glyphosate poisons everything in its path except plants genetically modified to resist it.

Glyphosate-based herbicides are now the most commonly used herbicides in the world. Glyphosate is an essential partner to the GMOs that are the principal business of the burgeoning biotech industry. Glyphosate is a "broad-spectrum" herbicide that destroys indiscriminately, not by killing unwanted plants directly but by tying up access to critical nutrients.

Because of the insidious way in which it works, it has been sold as a relatively benign replacement for the devastating earlier dioxin-based herbicides. But a barrage of experimental data has now shown glyphosate and the GMO foods incorporating it to pose serious dangers to health. Compounding the risk is the toxicity of "inert" ingredients used to make glyphosate more potent. Researchers have found, for example, that the surfactant POEA can kill human cells, particularly embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells. But these risks have been conveniently ignored.

The widespread use of GMO foods and glyphosate herbicides helps explain the anomaly that the US spends over twice as much per capita on healthcare as the average developed country, yet it is rated far down the scale of the world's healthiest populations. The World Health Organization has ranked the US LAST out of 17 developed nations for overall health.

Sixty to seventy percent of the foods in US supermarkets are now genetically modified. By contrast, in at least 26 other countries - including Switzerland, Australia, Austria, China, India, France, Germany, Hungary, Luxembourg, Greece, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, Mexico and Russia - GMOs are totally or partially banned; and significant restrictions on GMOs exist in about sixty other countries.

A ban on GMO and glyphosate use might go far toward improving the health of Americans. But the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a global trade agreement for which the Obama Administration has sought Fast Track status, would block that sort of cause-focused approach to the healthcare crisis.

False flag threat? Israeli minister warns accord could end in suitcase bomb

An internationally isolated Benjamin Netanyahu termed the world powers' agreement with Iran a "historic mistake" that advanced Tehran towards nuclear weapons capability

."What was agreed in Geneva is not a historic agreement but a historic mistake," the Israeli Prime Minister told his cabinet hours after the accord was reached. "Today the world became a much more dangerous place because the most dangerous regime in the world has made a significant step to attaining the most dangerous weaponry in the world."

While the agreement limits Iran to enriching uranium by a maximum of 5 per cent, it casts aside Israel's demand that enrichment be eliminated entirely, something seen in the West as unrealistic.

Israel, believed to be the only nuclear power in the region, says allowing any enrichment is dangerous since Iranian centrifuges could quickly convert even low-grade uranium to weapons grade.

Billionaire Hollywood producer behind Stone's 'JFK' movie, Aaron Milchan, was secret operative for Israel's illegal nukes program and Mossad arms dealer

Hollywood producer gives interview in which he confirms earlier claims that he was an arms dealer

The Hollywood producer behind box office hits including Fight Club, Pretty Woman and LA Confidential has spoken about his life as an Israeli secret agent and arms dealer, saying he was proud of working for his country.

Arnon Milchan gave a lengthy interview to the Israeli documentary programme Uvda, broadcast on Monday on Channel 2, confirming claims made earlier in an unauthorised biography that he worked for an Israeli agency which negotiated arms deals and supported Israel's secret nuclear weapons project.

Comment: Ahem, he's referring to the Mossad.

Milchan, who was born in Israel, was recruited as a young businessman to the Bureau of Scientific Relations by Shimon Peres, now Israel's president, in the 1960s. The bureau, which worked to obtain scientific and technical information for secret defence programmes, closed down in 1987.

Milchan, 68, is now the chairman of New Regency, which has produced more than 120 Hollywood movies since the 1970s, working with actors and directors such as Robert de Niro, Martin Scorsese, Roman Polanski, Oliver Stone, Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck.

Comment: Apparently Regency's first movie was Oliver stone's JFK.

Comment: Guess what other movie Milchan produced?

Oliver Stone's JFK.

As well-made and informative as Stone's movie is, it's quite possible that, unbeknownst to Stone even, the Zionists stepped in to 'help' this movie in order to keep the focus on U.S. intelligence involvement, to the total exclusion of any mention of possible Israeli involvement.

How many Americans know today that JFK was their only President to ever confront the Israelis over their nuke program and to draft a UN resolution in FAVOR of the unconditional right of return for Palestinian refugees?

When it comes to Israeli interests, people have met untimely ends for way less...

Who killed Kennedy: CIA, LBJ, or the Truly "Unspeakable"?


Tehran accord designed to fail?

Iran santions
© Unknown
The "first step" agreement between Iran and the United States that was sealed in Geneva over the weekend is supposed to lead to the negotiation of a "comprehensive settlement" of the nuclear issue over the next six months, though the latter has gotten little attention.

But within hours of the agreement, there were already indications from senior US officials that the Barack Obama administration is not fully committed to the conclusion of a final pact, under which economic sanctions would be completely lifted.

The administration has apparently developed reservations about such an "end state" agreement despite concessions by the government of President Hassan Rouhani that were more far-reaching than could have been anticipated a few months ago.

The Rouhani government's moves to reassure the West may have spurred hopes on the part of senior officials of the Obama administration that the United States can achieve its minimum aims in reducing Iran's breakout capacity without giving up its trump cards - the harsh sanctions on Iran's oil expert and banking sectors.

Paranoia strikes deep... White House orders review of 5 million security clearances

The Clapper!

U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper
Officials in the Obama administration have demanded that federal government agencies evaluate how a total of five million Americans have been granted classified information security clearances and, of those, how many truly require it.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, in a document obtained by Politico, questioned why more than 1.4 million people have been authorized for a "Top Secret" clearance level. Approximately 3.5 million Americans have lesser security clearance levels.

Pundits and lawmakers alike have wondered how secure the vetting process is after NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and suspected Washington Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis were granted security clearance.

"I write to express my concern about threats to national security resulting from the increasing number of people with eligibility for access to classified national security information, particularly Top Secret (TS) and Top Secret/Secure Compartmented Information (TS/SCI)," Clapper wrote.
