In the Shadows of the Unknown

Via: peoplestrustmalaysia

Fear is a political instrument, but knowledge is power



Your doorbell rings in the dark of night, so you quietly approach the peephole to size up your visitor. The porch light doesn’t illuminate the person well enough to see him clearly, but he’s definitely wearing a mask. You move your eyes lower to get a better look at the tall figure. He’s standing, waiting, on the other side of the threshold. He’s holding a machete.

On any other night, this scenario might send adrenaline coursing through your veins, fueling an almost palpable fear. But tonight is different. It’s Halloween. And rather than feeling scared, you casually open the door to discover that the dimly lit figure is the teenager from down the street dressed as the killer from a slasher flick.

We don’t fear a scary-looking stranger on our doorstep on October 31 because we know it’s very likely to be a friendly neighbor seeking sugar. This information, born of experience, empowers us to act rationally. It’s possible, of course, that the machete-wielding figure really is a murderer going door to door — but the odds are against it, especially on this night of the year.

Imagine if you didn’t know how to assess that risk. Imagine locking your doors, turning off all the lights, and cowering in the dark, waiting for all the trick-or-treaters to go away.

Unfortunately, this is the situation we too often find ourselves in when politicians and the media tell us to be scared — of terrorists, of deadly contagions from overseas, or just of each other. We know that not all of the threats can be real, but how are we to discern the true menaces from the false alarms?
When people are scared, they will support policies that promise to keep us safe, but end up costing us ever more—both in tax dollars and lost liberties. That’s why despots throughout history have sought means by which the masses could be intentionally kept in the dark: ignorance and fear give the despots power. It doesn’t matter which political party is in power. The left tries to scare people with dark visions of unchecked greed and exploitation. The right wants people to fear alleged threats to our security, both abroad and within our borders. Fear pervades politics generally. As John Adams once wrote, it is “the foundation of most governments.”

We naturally defer decision making to those who have access to greater political and military intelligence than the general population does. Christopher Guzelian, a legal theorist, posits that politicians are so successful in their use of fear because of “risk information (whether correct or false) that is communicated to society.” In other words, we fear the hobgoblins we can’t see solely on the basis that we’re told they exist and are coming after us. Guzelian concludes that it is “risk communication, not personal experience, [that] causes most fear these days.” Without information, and lacking direct experience, we often respond irrationally.

51 countries declare banking secrecy ‘obsolete’, sign pact in Berlin

Finance ministers from over 51 countries signed an agreement in a step closer to ending the dark financial underworld of tax-evasion and money-laundering. Another 30 countries pledged to join by 2018.

The deal is called the Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement and will look to build a collective exchange of bank accounts, taxes, assets, and income held outside local tax jurisdictions.

Sweden Defies the West, and Switzerland has Referendum For Gold Backed Currency

More nations are cutting their 5 Eyes leash cords…
Now Sweden defies the WEST’s policy that ignores Israel’s aggressions and crimes against humanity.
Switzerland is a interesting nation that has the distinction of Direct Democracy.
Many are holding their collective breaths, waiting for November 30, 2014 Switzerland’s Gold referendum; Next clipping could be Gold. We also note the Wall Street Journal said: Gold and currencies markets are starting to show their first nerves ahead of a referendum in Switzerland that could potentially force the country’s central bank to buy thousands of metric tons of gold and never sell it… ~Ron

Sweden officially recognizes Palestinian state, Israel recalls ambassador

“Our decision comes at a critical time because over the last year we have seen how the peace talks have stalled, how decisions over new settlements on occupied Palestinian land have complicated a two-state solution and how violence has returned to Gaza,” Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom told reporters.
[...] “Today’s recognition is a contribution to a better future for a region that has for too long been characterized by frozen negotiations, destruction and frustration,” she wrote earlier on Thursday in the daily Dagens Nyheter.

Disorderly Reset Coming-Dollar Goes to Zero-Egon von Greyerz

Egon von Greyerz (EvG) – Founder and Managing Partner of Matterhorn Asset Management AG (MAM) and GoldSwitzerland based in Zurich, Switzerland.
Egon von Greyerz is not bullish on the U.S. dollar.  Greyerz explains, “More and more countries are trying to go away from the dollar, and I think the days of the dollar are counted.  I think the dollar is going to start falling rapidly in coming months and years.

Podcast – Egon von Greyerz: “Nigel Farage (MEP and leader of UKIP) was recently in Switzerland to speak about the EU. His view is that the UK and all other EU members should exit the EU since it is a failed union. At the same meeting the Swiss Gold Initiative was discussed. Farage is a proponent of sound money and gold. The Gold Initiative referendum on 30 November could be a game changer for the gold market……..
November 30, 2014 Swiss vote

Sadly, we are just at the end of a major era.”

There will be a very disorderly reset with currencies falling.  They can’t all fall at the same time, but they will fall dramatically, and gold will, of course, reflect that.  The stock markets are in a bubble, and they will also fall.
[...] Of course, the biggest bubble of them all, where governments do all they can to keep the bubble going, is the bond market.  We have more debt than ever and interest rates at zero.  That just doesn’t add up.”  Greyerz goes on to say, “You can’t have governments borrow more than ever and have interest rates at zero.  You can only do that temporarily because you have governments printing money and artificially holding interest rates down.  That will not last either.  So, the reset will be dramatic.

Greyerz is predicting the end of the U.S. dollar era…

The FED Makes Surprising Claim: To End The Quantitative Easing Bond-buying Program!

1financial terrorismWe have shared documented evidence that the federal reserve, U.S. Treasury, and other officials routinely deceive the public.
Institutions have proven themselves to be untrustworthy.
Thus, it is always with the caution of a professional detective investigator searching for the facts that we critically examine what the Federal Reserve activities really are…
What Is REALLY Going On inside the Federal Reserve System?
I expect EASY MONEY to remain available to the member institutions.
Happy Trick or Treat Halloween! ~Ron
2 Betrayal of trust

The Federal Reserve has officially announced an end to its quantitative easing bond-buying program

[...] “the Committee decided to conclude its asset purchase program this month.”
READ: Press Release

Everyone must ask “what does this mean” and “what will result”?
Have the policy makers another plan to protect the banksters international monetary system?
Will bank holiday be declared before the end of the 2015 calendar year? (my near term estimate)
Many people are confused, despite the talk about the dollar by different Fed officials, dollar policy is “officially” and contractually  set by the U.S. Treasury.

U.S. Government Bonds Fall After Fed Statement

Reports the Wall Street Journal.

Also, recall that U.S. Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew urged G-20 Nations to Avoid Competitive Devaluations 3 weeks ago…
Lew singled out China, urging the world’s second-largest economy, to let the [U.S. controlled market] set the value of the yuan.

Robert Michele: Fed Ending QE Is Not the End of Easy Money

Oct. 30, 2014 (Bloomberg) Robert Michele, global FICC chief investment officer at JPMorgan Asset Management, and Bloomberg’s Lisa Abramowicz, discuss the end of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve and how it may affect the bond and equity markets. They speak on “Bloomberg Surveillance.”

Amazing Video: Was This #MH17 Aircrash recorded?

NOTICE: To All, The video was removed by the uploader with apologies. The video, reportedly, was “from a 2009 unreleased video of a crash at an air show in Iran. That video was reported by Russia today in 2011!”
The uploader has also publicly apologized that in haste the video was not properly screened.
We can and should forgive a honest mistake and learn from them.
Last update 3:25pm GMT 30 Oct 2014

First we should thank everyone that has shared this video including the military aviation personnel.
I especially thank Redza Shahwis and Amanah Satu–Malaysi  for sharing this amazing video.

MH17 is a open criminal investigation

Let us Share, investigate, research, and discuss this, before making a conclusion.
Be responsible and factual.
Because the governance institutions are untrustworthy, we the People on Earth need to have our independent research and investigation as an open source investigation, publicly available to all.
We explore Truth and Freedom.

A few observations & questions to note:
This was a military operation, (could it be a NATO coordinated operation?).
When and Where was this video recorded?
My first thought, is this possibly a military cargo jet with open cargo-ramp, with personnel having fun video recording a live refueling mission and amazingly have footage of a aircraft destroyed in-air and crashing to ground?
Facts could only be obtained by asking the person recording the event and the crew-members.
Can The destroyed jet in the video be identified?
Ask for affidavits from the military personnel on-board the refueler with the open cargo ramp.

This video evidence should go viral with questions, not assumptions.
Global inquiry should reveal facts.
#MH17 is a crime that needs investigation-solving

Not A Accident, But A Policy

1Beware bankers-what-now
This is a problem that has been building for decades and continues under the Obama administration.
Financial professionals politely call it redistribution of wealth.
Policies have been strangling small business creation to death, trade agreements shipped manufacturing jobs overseas to exploit cheap labor,  capital for small businesses stopped, and as a result the number of Americans that are self-employed, as well as the number of People who have a full time job keeps going down.  The 2008 financial crisis continues.
Check out these charts:

Keep in mind that throughout this entire time the U.S. population has been growing.  Thus, the numbers in the chart above should be going up steadily as the population grows.  Yet, the entrepreneurial numbers continue to decline. We are mindful that U.S. domestic manufacturing and worker participation has also declined.

This is systemic, this is problematic, this is policy

Since 2004 the home ownership rate has consistently declined.

Does This Look Like A Housing Recovery To You?

“homeownership rate in the United States has fallen to the lowest level in 19 years.” -Michael Snyder, on October 28th, 2014


50 Percent Of American Workers Make Less Than 28,031 Dollars A Year

This is more evidence of the declining quality of the jobs in this country.  In many homes in America today, both parents are working multiple jobs in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Our paychecks are stagnant while the cost of living just continues to soar.  And the jobs that are being added to the economy pay a lot less than the jobs lost in the last recession.  In fact, it has been estimated that the jobs that have been created since the last recession pay an average of 23 percent less than the jobs that were lost.  We are witnessing the slow-motion destruction of the middle class, and very few of our leaders seem to care. -Michael Snyder, on October 23rd, 2014



The mainstream media is constantly telling us about the “employment recovery” that is happening in the United States, but the truth is that it is just an illusion.
As the chart above demonstrates, just prior to the last recession about 63 percent of all working age Americans had a job.  During the last wave of the economic collapse, that number dropped to below 59 percent and stayed there for a very long time.  In the past few months we have finally seen the employment-population ratio tick back up to 59 percent, but we are still far, far below where we used to be.  To call the tiny little bump at the end of this chart a “recovery” is really an insult to our intelligence…


The Labor Force Participation Rate

The percentage of Americans that are either employed or currently looking for a job started to fall during the last recession and it has not stopped falling since then.  The labor force participation rate has now fallen to a 36 year low, and this is a sign of a very, very sick economy…

Speaking of deceptive politicians and their bankster masters:

“We all know what to do; we just don’t know how to get re-elected after we’ve done it.” -former Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker

The Way the Markets Really Works – Market Mechanics

“What’s Really going on in the markets; what you don’t see.
What’s important is… in that hedge fund mode. Is to not get … to not do ANYTHING remotely true.

and the fiction is developed by almost anybody who is down by 2% or up…” -Jim Cramer (Hedge Fund expert & CNBC actor analyst)

Instability Is Systemic For The International Monetary System

For some time we have been discussing banksters and our expectations of behind closed doors arguments to become public in G8 (minus 0ne?) and the G20 summits, perhaps the EU is the leading indicator?

Are Central Banks Feeling Public Pressure and Citizens’ Outrage?

Bank-of-England_or DOOM
Recently we reported on the fact that the U.S. central bank (Federal Reserve Bank of N.Y.) was feeling the public pressure and attempted some damage control with a public speech by the Pres. & CEO. Now we see the same from the Bank of DOOM, er… I mean England.
Oh my, the central bank building certainly look like a dungeon of Doom.

Attempting damage control, the bank of England, announced a review, because the fraud, scams, and market rigging in the manipulated global financial industry has tarnished the image of banking and the financial sector as a whole. Will a CEO at a prominent bank be jailed before the markets crash? ~Ron

Bank of England launches wide-ranging review of London’s markets

Nine-month consultation aimed at increasing integrity in investment banking markets, Chancellor George Osborne says

By , Marion Dakers and Szu Ping Chan 27 Oct 2014

The Bank of England has launched the most wide ranging review of London’s markets in history in an attempt to restore trust in the wake of a number of rate-rigging scandals.

In a bid to maintain the Square Mile’s position as the leading global financial centre, the Bank will set about to repair sentiment in key markets to ensure they are “fair, effective and trusted by all.”
Chancellor George Osborne used his Mansion House Speech this summer to announce the initial review.
Last month, the Treasury said traders who manipulated key oil, gold and currency benchmarks would face the same huge fines or jail sentences as those who attempted to rig Libor and Mr Osborne has pledged to “have the new regime in place by the end of the year”.

Read Full Report:

[...] We should be candid tonight about another risk.
The risk that scandals on our trading floors call into question the integrity of our financial markets.
People should know that when they trade in London, whether in commodities or currencies or fixed income instruments, that they are trading in markets that are fair and effective.

The revelations about the manipulation of LIBOR added further damage to reputation of financial services, here and abroad. -George Osborne Mansion House speech 2014

Life threatening Video Shows Man Refusing to Lie Down For Police, Despite Guns Pointed at Him


What ever happened to Peace Officers?
What ever happened to public servants?
What ever happened to respect the People in the community?
Fast-Gun-Draw is in opposition to maintaining peace, respect, and service.
This is terrorism with uniforms and badges.
This can be solved with amending the police training programs and mandatory retraining.
Watch this life threatening video to the end and see true courage, not the fake Hollywood version.
A living example of Liberty or Death – freedom motto. ~Ron

“This is one man talking to another. There is a man behind that badge, be like a man. That is a coward pointing a gun at me”

La Quinta, CA –
A powerful video was submitted to the Free Thought Project which shows a dramatic interaction between a man and La Quinta police.

Alejandro Natividad, a resident of Indio pulled out his phone and caught his incredible non-violent resistance on video Sunday as police were pointing guns at him.

Natividad, had committed no crime, yet when police chose to interact with him, guns were drawn and he was told to get face down on the concrete.

Natividad non-violently refused to lay down because he knew he was right, and knew that he committed no crime. But this decision did not go over well with police.

Another officer showed up and drew his pistol as well and pointed it at Natividad. At this point Natividad is incredibly nervous but continues to film and holds his ground, refusing to lay down for doing nothing wrong.

The resultant video is inspiring to say the least.

Sure, many will say he should have just laid down and complied with the officers demands to subject himself to humiliation by laying on the ground for doing nothing wrong. But his reasons for not complying were principled and courageous.

The Free Thought Project contacted Natividad this morning for an interview. He tells us that the reason him and the police crossed paths was that he was a passenger in a vehicle whose driver started acting weird.

“We were on our way to my friends house and we were at a stop light. When the light turned green my friend began to make some weird motions and really freaking me out. I told him the light was green and he had a deer in a headlights look. A deputy walked up and asked what was going on I told him he was acting weird I don’t know. He asked if we had any weapons and I said ‘no.’

At this time my friend was still doing some weird motions and finally answered the deputies question if he was okay. I had mentioned that we’re in the middle of the street and he came to and stepped on the gas and drove onto the corner. I jump out of the car and walked out with my hands up and was standing where the recording took place. Deputy drives up comes out of his vehicle with his gun drawn. That’s when I decided to record.”

At this point is when this dramatic video begins. During the interchange Natividad says to the La Quinta officer,

“This is America. This is not a police state.”

“This is one man talking to another. There is a man behind that badge, be like a man. That is a coward pointing a gun at me,” exclaims Natividad.

Understandably, Natividad gets very worked up and is eventually brought to tears during this intense scene.

When we asked him why he refused Natividad answered in a statement reminiscent of Emiliano Zapata’s famous quote which is, “I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.”

Nattividad tells the Free Thought Project,

“I wasn’t under arrest the deputy even admits that I did nothing yet had a gun pointed at me. Where’s the logic in that? I was afraid and if I was going to get harmed I’d much rather take it standing than on my face.”

Natividad tells us that eventually two more officers approached him and threatened to taser and beat him with a baton and he was cuffed and put into the back of a cruiser. But he never went face down.

The driver of the vehicle was arrested for DUI of marijuana and released the next day.

Natividad, after standing his ground and asserting his rights, was then free to go.

There is flexing your rights and there is what Natividad did, which goes way further. To lay life and limb on the line to make a principled stand takes true fortitude, and for that, we commend Alejandro Natividad.

Below is the dramatic exchange.


After that video you may want some entertainment,
okay here you go:

Here is research in obedience to “authority” or people in uniform.

Injustice: We Are Talking About Lawyers

wolf disguise
Recall last week we shared the amazing abuse of the legal system that could implicate the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Eric Holder
Dig deeper in the legal system and everywhere one looks professional crime is uncovered.
This is not a surprise, as the fraudulent international monetary system is the root for most, if not all, Institutions on earth.
And consider the U.S. Dollar is the world’s reserve currency of the fraudulent monetary system, then it comes not as a surprise to find fraud in every institution we research. ~Ron

Law Firm CyberSecurity – Both For Compliance, Branding

Cyber_securityLaw firms with financial clients already have had to comply with special cybersecurity procedures. Now that’s being beefed up. As Jennifer Smith and Emily Glazer report in The Wall Street Journal (sub req.):

“Big banks are demanding that their law firms do more to protect sensitive information to ensure that they don’t become back doors for hackers.”

Last week on “The Good Wife,” a cyberattack happened through an email.  Files were held for ransom.


3 Saudi Lawyers, Including Harvard Law Grad, Sentenced To Jail For Tweeting

Twitter-iconsA Saudi court in Riyadh on Monday sentenced three lawyers to up to eight years in jail after they criticized the Ministry of Justice on Twitter … one of them [is] a Harvard Law School graduate.” – Ahmed Al Omran, “Saudi Lawyers Jailed for Critical Tweets” in The Wall Street Journal, October 27, 2014. Here is that article (sub. req.)

In every nation there is a disconnect between a new medium and the powers that be who want to maintain a status quo. In the U.S. it was television which depicted the horrors of the Viet Nam War, on the nightly news. Activists rose up. The American government tried to ignore or punish them. Eventually, the sitting president Lyndon Johnson had to exit the loop. He did not run for a second term. The activism eventually ended the war.

Half of the Saudi people who use the Internet, notes Omran, are on Twitter. Yet, the government has had a track record of imposing harsh sentences on outspoken Twitter critics. For the three lawyers, there also has been a fine, which collectively totaled $266,666. They are appealing the entire verdict.


Madoff 5 – Sentencing Postponed Until December Because Of Forfeiture Delays

AboutcourtroomWhen did each of the Madoff 5 – that is, assistants in Bernie Madoff’s investment firm – know a securities fraud was going on? On that answer depends how much each will have to forfeit to the federal government in terms of their assets. The government is anticipating about $100 billion.

Prosecution contends it was from the first day at work for each of them. The defense is attempting to use a different timeline.

Second Deutsche Bank Executive Found Dead in Suspected Suicide

Dead bank executive was connected to Libor scandal

“Mr. Calogero Gambino, 41, had been closely involved in negotiating legal issues for Deutsche Bank, including the prolonged probe into manipulation of the London interbank offered rate, or Libor, and ongoing investigations into manipulating of currencies markets …” - David Enrich, Jenney Strasburg and Pervaiz Shallwani, “Deutsche Bank Lawyer Found Dead in New York in Suicide,” in The Wall Street Journal. October 24, 2014. Here is the article (sub. req.)

Calogero Gambino, 41, was found hanging by the neck from a stairway banister, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Gambino, an associate general counsel and managing director, had worked for Deutsche Bank for 11 years.
Earlier this year, in London, a former Deutsche executive William Broeksmit, 58, [reportedly] hung himself.


This needs to go viral and shared with your local independent media:

Fed Up With Govt Misconduct, Federal Judge Takes Nuclear Option
Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.

In an extraordinary development, Judge England, Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California, ordered the recusal of all the Eastern District judges from the case because of serious allegations that the Court itself was defrauded by the government in the original prosecution. To avoid any appearance of partiality, he has referred the case to Ninth Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to appoint a judge from outside the Eastern District to handle the case going forward. Judge Kozinski has excoriated prosecutors for failing to meet their legal and ethical obligations.

Oh My! Is This Good News?

8% Plunge in Oct. 2014 LSAT Takers V. Oct. 2013 – Expect Increasing Academic Unemployment

Unemployment-lineIt doesn’t matter how brilliant and well-published a law professor you are or how efficient an administrator at the law school. If there are not enough seats filled, you will likely be out of work, with no direction to comparable jobs. The number of applicants to law school continues to tank.

In The Walll Street Journal, Joe Palazzolo reports that in October 2014 there were 8% fewer takers of the LSAT than in October 2013. And the combined number for June and October 2014 is 43% less than the same periods in 2009. Here is that coverage, with stats cited from the Law School Admission Council (sub. req.)

The academic game is a very specialized one. Its skills and persona are not easily transferable to other lines of work. Sure, some of the unemployed professors and administrators will find homes in institutions with similar values. Those range from think tanks to foundations. However, the rest will have to face soul-wrenching professional change.

In the 1970s, when the Humanities market for college professors crashed (never to really recover again), my generation of doctoral students and non-tenured professors had to reinvent ourselves. Of course, most of us did. You got to pay the bills. But the socialization process had taken hold. That academic conditioning likely was a handicap for many of us.
