Hello our relatives. Our dad and husband, now walks among our ancestors. He began his journey to the spirit world at 4:44 am, with the Morning Star, at his home and ranch in Porcupine. There will be four opportunities for the people to honor his life to be announced at a later date. Thank you for your prayers and continued support. We love you. As our dad and husband would always say, “May the Great Mystery continue to guide and protect the paths of you and your loved ones.”

In this episode, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss workers of the world ‘uniting’ to give up their rights and nations of the world ‘uniting’ to give up their sovereignty. And the IMF sees for Europe an Irish like future where JP Morgan, Citibank, Bank of America and the Big Four accounting firms write the laws. In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to Nick Verbitsky, director of CONFIDENCE GAME, about the civil mortgage fraud suit filed against JP Morgan.

1.) This “Zero Percent” Interest Rate Policy of the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank is coupled with the FED’s money printing, into the many trillions of dollars of worthless paper. This is called “monetizing the debt” as the FED simply uses this printed paper to buy 70% yo 80% of our government treasury’s United States Bonds. This policy debases the dollar and syphons off value from the wealth of humanity. This may not appear brutal here at home in the USA, but since the dollar is the worlds reserve currency, lets look at some of the effects of this fascism.
(Fascism is the merger of private corporations and government power)
2.) By keeping interest rates at zero, the Privately Owned Central Bank sucks all the value off of every City, County, State, and Private Pension Fund, that has money, and requires a growth rate of 6% to 8% to be able to pay out pensions. That zero percent means all growth is limited to less than 2%, which depletes money from the reserves of the pensions and delivers that value to the FED. It’s a skimming operation based on interest rates. Simple. When you or anyone else retires, there will be no money in the pensions, as the FED will have already taken it all thru this low rate standard.
3.) Student Loans at 6% and up, will not be repaid as there will not be money with value remaining in the economy to cover the spread. This means that everyone borrowing money for education is signing up for slavery to the Banks over the lifetime of their debts for education.
4.) Mortgages at 3% to 5% or more, will in turn simply are contracts of indentured servitude to the banks. And you thought slavery was illegal? Think again.
5.) Outside the USA, the inflation hits in the commodities as the debased dollar really become violently brutal in real human prices. Food cost two to 4 or 5 times what it used to. Same with fuel for heating and cooking. The real cost is starvation where over 2 billion are already suffering in ability to survive on what they have. Within a year, one billion will die. Who needs work camps like Auschwitz to exterminate people when monetary policy will serve the same end thru physical starvation. And we thought Hitler was bad killing 10 to 12 million, if that. And with Stalin, and Mao, Stalin killed 20 to 30 million and Mao killed over 80 to 120 million respectively. Those rates of genocide are nothing compared to what Wall Street is dishing out to humanity now, over the next 24 months.
6.) No Economist is being honest with people thru their silence.
7.) What the Central Banks are doing is removing the financial-life-blood from the political body of our economies.
8.) Who owns these “Central Banks”? What a surprise. Not one Central Bank is publicly owned and not one issues credit based currency, with any reasonable 2% to 3% interest rate required for people to accumulate and then grow their own individual net worth.
9.) This fraud is called a systemic control fraud. Franklin Roosevelt recognized this and created the Glass Steagle Act as one way to prevent this, without removing privately owned banks from the markets. It’s now time to terminate privately owned banks, confiscate their criminal gains, and establish a new financial system based on publicly owned banks, with credit based currencies, controlled by a board of governors for each nation, accountable to democratically elected governments.
Alright occupiers, trick or treat,
Let’s all go to Washington, DC, and have a Halloween night party!
Let’s celebrate the wonderful Coke/Pepsi presidential election now in progress … and the honest, feisty way our elected reps in Congress have conducted our nation’s business … pay tribute to the bold visions they’ve put forward.
At dusk on October 31, let’s gather on Capitol Hill, trick or treat Congress and party like we’ve never partied before.
PS And if you cannot make it to DC then party in front of the Bank of America in your community… outside your city hall… or in the squares.
Invite your friends via the Facebook event: #HALLOWEENPARTY
We’ll be there. Will we see you there too?
Last month, the jobless rate for the county fell to 11%, down from 12.4% a year earlier.
Wrong. In Los Angeles, the falling unemployment rate is slightly misleading, just as it has been for the country overall.While that’s far higher than the 8.1% unemployment rate for the nation as a whole, it nevertheless seems to show progress for the City of Angels… right?
When surveyed by the government, fewer L.A. residents say they’re unemployed compared to a year ago. But it’s not because they’re finding jobs. It’s because they’re dropping out of the labor force altogether.
Just over 100,000 of workers have left the Los Angeles labor force since the beginning of the year, according to seasonally adjusted data from the California Employment Development Department.
The decline stands in stark contrast to other major metropolitan areas. New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., and San Francisco are all seeing their labor forces grow.
So what’s going on in Southern California?
The real estate boom and bust hurt L.A. far more dramatically than those other cities, and a lack of construction jobs may partially explain why some workers have stopped looking for employment. Construction jobs have recently started to come back slowly, but in L.A. they’re still off by about 50,000 jobs from 2007 levels.
Other large Western cities affected by the housing bust, like Las Vegas and Phoenix, have also reported declining unemployment rates over the last year, partly due to their shrinking labor force.
The overall job numbers in Los Angeles are also heavily influenced by its immigrant population. As job opportunities have waned, particularly in low-skill sectors, so too has immigration to the city. Data from the Pew Hispanic Center shows immigration numbers have dwindled and vast numbers of Mexican immigrants have returned to Mexico
"In general, these folks have been moving back or simply not coming back as they have before, because the opportunities, particularly in the construction industry, are simply not as they used to be," said Christopher Thornberg, founding partner of Beacon Economics, a firm based in Los Angeles. The "labor force" refers both to people who are working, as well as those who are actively searching for jobs. People who are retired, enrolled in college or staying home to take care of relatives are not included in the category.When the labor force declines, it can be the result of a broad demographic trend — for example, more Baby Boomers retiring, or more young people enrolling in college — or it can be a worrisome sign of people getting discouraged, moving away and giving up on the job market altogether.
The latter seems to be the case in Los Angeles.
"This local economy has now gone through a couple of very severe cycles over the last 20 years, and we are concerned," said Robert Kleinhenz, chief economist at the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation. "We still have double digit unemployment rates here."
Still, economists caution not to look just at one piece of data. Los Angeles County residents say they have fewer jobs than they did a year ago, but when the government surveyed employers last month, companies reported creating 74,000 jobs over the year — the largest increase in a decade.
"You’ve got to reconcile the shrinking labor force with the growing number of jobs, which is a conundrum," said Steve Levy, director and senior economist of the Center for Continuing Study of the California Economy.
Part of the disparity could mean that commuters, who live outside the county, are getting the new jobs that are being created.
"L.A. has hot industries, but those people may not live in Los Angeles," Levy said. "They may live in surrounding areas like Orange County."

The practice of using renewal seeds dates back to ancient times, but Monsanto seeks to collect massive royalties and put an end to the practice. Why? Because Monsanto owns the very patent to the genetically modified seed, and is charging the farmers not only for the original crops, but the later harvests as well. Eventually, the royalties compound and many farmers begin to struggle with even keeping their farm afloat. It is for this reason that India slammed Monsanto with groundbreaking ’bio-piracy’ charges in an effort to stop Monsanto from ‘patenting life’.
Jane Berwanger, a lawyer for the farmers who went on record regarding the case, told the Associated Press:
“Monsanto gets paid when it sell the seeds. The law gives producers the right to multiply the seeds they buy and nowhere in the world is there a requirement to pay (again). Producers are in effect paying a private tax on production.”
The findings echo what thousands of farmers have experienced in particularly poor nations, where many of the farmers are unable to stand up to Monsanto. Back in 2008, the Daily Mail covered what is known as the ‘GM Genocide’, which is responsible for taking the lives of over 17,683 Indian farmers in 2009 alone. After finding that their harvests were failing and they started to enter economic turmoil, the farmers began ending their own lives — oftentimes drinking the very same insecticide that Monsanto provided them with.
As the information continues to surface on Monsanto’s crimes, further lawsuits will begin to take effect. After it was ousted in January that Monsanto was running illegal ‘slave-like’ working rings, more individuals became aware of just how seriously Monsanto seems to disregard their workers — so why would they care for the health of their consumers? In April, another group of farmers sued Monsanto for ‘knowingly poisoning’ workers and causing ‘devastating birth defects’.
Will endless lawsuits from millions of seriously affected individuals be the end of Monsanto?
Time will only tell.
