Cash Friday

CASH FRIDAY Catherine Austin Fitts Όπως λέει και το ρητό, “το χρήμα κινεί τον κόσμο”, αλλά η σημερινή μάχη των ψηφιακών νομισμάτων, του πληθωρισμού και των χαρτονομισμάτων έχει φέρει την ανθρωπότητα στο όριο μεταξύ ελευθερίας και φασισμού. Η πανδημία και οι περιορισμοί κυκλοφορίας που τη συνοδεύουν ήταν εξαιρετικά επιτυχημένη, δημιουργώντας το κατάλληλο περιβάλλον για τον απόλυτο έλεγχο της κοινωνίας, της υγείας, των χρημάτων και των τροφίμων. Τεράστια τμήματα του πληθυσμού, επηρεασμένα από τον φόβο και τον έλεγχο του νου, βρίσκονται σε πλήρη υποταγή. Κάθε πτυχή της ζωής και ο τρόπος λειτουργίας της πλησιάζει τώρα τη μέγγενη του κ. Παγκόσμιου. Γιατί υπάρχει ανάγκη για πλήρη έλεγχο; Ποιός ξέρει…. Άνθρωποι όπως η Catherine και ο Dr. Joseph Farrell έχουν περάσει δεκαετίες στην προσπάθεια να καταλάβουν γιατί. Ωστόσο, η πραγματικότητα είναι ότι δεν έχουμε χρόνο για να καταλάβουμε το γιατί. Η ανθρωπότητα βρίσκεται στις ράγες και το τρένο έρχεται ολοταχώς μέσα από τη σήραγγα προς εμάς. Υπάρχει μια διάχυτη αίσθηση αδυναμίας – «Τι να κάνω;». Καταλαβαίνω πώς ένα ελάφι ”παγώνει” όταν το πλησιάζει ένα αυτοκίνητο που πηγαίνει καταπάνω του με αναμένους προβολείς. Ο φόβος μπορεί να παραλύσει. Όλοι όμως μπορούμε να κάνουμε κάτι, και αυτό το κάτι είναι πολύ απλό: χρησιμοποιήστε μετρητά, ειδικά … Continue reading

Alternativ fuer Deutschland: Germany’s Left and Right Change Sides on the issues of War and Peace

SOURCE The results of last weekend’s elections in the German state of Hesse have been getting quite a run in mainstream media.  The sharp losses suffered by both parties in the Grand Coalition, the Socialists (SPD) and Merkel’s center-right CDU, finally delivered the decisive push that spells the end the reign of the iron lady in Berlin. Not immediately, but in the very foreseeable future, depending on who is elected to replace her at the head of her party in December. Otherwise commentators have called attention to the beneficiaries of the waning strength at the center: the Greens on the Left, and more particularly the Alternativ fuer Deutschland (AfD) on the Right.  While the Greens are a long known quantity in German politics by their participation in the coalitions governing several Laender, the AfD is a relative newcomer and analysts noted with anxiety that the latest election returns now put AfD deputies in all of the German federal states, making it finally a nationwide party and eventual claimant to ministerial portfolios following the next German elections which might come already in 2019. What we hear about the AfD in mainstream media tends to be condescending, at best, scornful more commonly. The party’s … Continue reading

Azcarate, Spinelli, Eurocommunism, How European are the Italian Eurocommunists?

SOURCE Urban One of the surprises of the last Italian elections was your candidacy for the Chamber of Deputies on the Communist platform. Your decision to run for election in support of Communist policies was received with a mixture of horror and disbelief, not least because you were one of Italy’s two Commissioners on the Brussels Commission and a leading European Federalist. Those not familiar with the intricacies of Italian Communist politics had reason to be puzzled. Has the PCI sufficiently changed its attitude to Europe for Altiero Spinelli to embrace it, or has Altiero Spinelli changed his politics because the Italian Communists appeared to be set for victory? In either case, there were questions to be asked, both in respect of your attitude to the Communist Party and of the Party’s attitude to the policies you represent. What made you decide to run on the Communist ticket? Spinelli My mandate at the European Commission was about to expire when the elections were announced (it expired at the end of 1976); and as I was close to 70, I decided to return to Italy and retire from public life. In the meantime, I was keeping a close watch on the Italian situation, … Continue reading

Raul “Ilargi” Meijer on Julian Assange

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nUpV8JR38c W. Hall: Good afternoon Raul “Ilargi” Meijer. You have a blog called “Automatic Earth” and you are very active with it. Can you say something about “Automatic Earth”? When was it founded? What is its aim? Ilargi: It was founded almost eleven years ago. Nicole Foss and I founded it because we wanted to write about finance whereas the people we were writing for before that, “The Oil Drum”, didn’t want us to do that and we thought it was too important not to. WH: And what are you doing here in Athens? Ilargi: I’m supporting a group of people who feed the homeless and refugees. I’ve written a bunch of articles at “Automatic Earth” about that. WH: Now even though you have written articles that show clearly how important you think it is to try to defend Julian Assange (I read one that you published today [17/8/2018] that was very much on that subject and it was a powerful article). You really don’t agree with Julian Assange on the importance of defending the European integration project or citizens’ Europe. Ilargi: I have no idea what either of these things are. WH: Well, let’s move on. In an article … Continue reading
