Excerpts: If the government makes it unattractive for you to keep cash in the bank, you can pull cash out of the bank. You can simply store it in a safe or under the mattress. Politicians know this. That’s why they’ve created another dangerous policy that works hand-in-glove with negative interest rates. That policy is banning cash… As the crisis develops, our deeply indebted government will act like a giant wounded beast, lashing out in all directions. It will grow more desperate for control. It will grow desperate for money. And just like FDR did in the 1930s, it will confiscate the wealth of private citizens. But Hillary Clinton (or Donald Trump, or whoever wins the election) won’t go after your gold. Nowadays, the gold market is very small compared to the overall economy. Going after gold would be too much work for the government. The government is going to go after YOUR CASH. It will regulate your cash. It will tax your cash. It will take your cash.”

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-02-16/larry-summers-launches-war-us-paper-money-its-time-kill-100-bill
Excerpts: Yesterday we reported that the ECB has begun contemplating the death of the €500 EURO note, a fate which is now virtually assured for the one banknote which not only makes up 30% of the total European paper currency in circulation by value, but provides the best, most cost-efficient alternative (in terms of sheer bulk and storage costs) to Europe’s tax on money known as NIRP. That also explains why Mario Draghi is so intent on eradicating it first, then the €200 bill, then the €100 bill, and so on… Larry Summers, has just released an oped in the left-leaning Amazon Washington Post, titled “It’s time to kill the $100 bill” in which he makes it clear that the pursuit of paper money is only just starting. Not surprisingly, just like in Europe, the argument is that killing the Benjamins would somehow eradicate crime, saying that “a moratorium on printing new high denomination notes would make the world a better place.”

 http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jun/2/calif-bill-prosecutes-climate-change-skeptics/ Excerpts: “A landmark bill allowing for the prosecution of climate change dissent effectively died Thursday after the California Senate failed to take it up before the deadline. Senate Bill 1161, or the California Climate Science Truth and Accountability Act of 2016, would have authorized prosecutors to sue fossil fuel companies, think tanks and others that have “deceived or misled the public on the risks of climate change.” The measure, which cleared two Senate committees, provided a four-year window in the statute of limitations on violations of the state’s Unfair Competition Law, allowing legal action to be brought until Jan. 1 on charges of climate change “fraud” extending back indefinitely.”

http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-buybacks-cannibalized/ Excerpts: Led by agenda-setting New York State and radical left-winger Al Gore the progressive persecution of climate change skeptics by the states is underway. Top law enforcement officers in several states are joining with the Chicken Littles of green activism to weaponize the scientifically dubious argument that human activity is not only changing the earth’s climate but that unprecedented world catastrophe awaits unless draconian, economy-killing carbon emission controls are imposed more or less immediately. The litigation offensive has nothing to do with justice. It is aimed at forcing those few remaining holdouts in the business community who stubbornly cling to science to confess their thought crimes and submit to the know-nothing Left’s climate superstitions. It is part of modern-day environmentalism’s ongoing assault on knowledge, human progress, markets, and the rule of law. Repent and embrace the true green faith or else you’ll be investigated and denounced as a climate criminal, is the message of “Inspector Gotcha,” New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman.

Excerpts: “Combined stock repurchases by U.S. public companies have reached record levels, a Reuters analysis finds, but as the recent history of such iconic businesses as Hewlett-Packard and IBM suggests, showering cash on shareholders may exact a long-term toll.”

The Islamization of Germany in 2016 By by Soeren Kern

https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/9700/germany-islamization

Excerpts: “Mass migration from the Muslim world is fast-tracking the Islamization of Germany, as evidenced by the proliferation of no-go zones, Sharia courts, polygamy and child marriages. Mass migration has also been responsible for a host of social disruptions, including jihadist attacks, a migrant rape epidemic, a public health crisis, rising crime and a rush by German citizens to purchase weapons for self-defense — and even to abandon Germany altogether.”


Excerpts: In his opening statement, Steyn reviewed the present tumultuous situation in Europe. He made it clear that the majority of people streaming into and across the continent are not traditional refugees at all, but male economic migrants, mostly not from war-torn Syria. He, and later Farage, painted a grim picture of the impact that culturally sanctioned aggression is having on communities exposed to critical numbers of migrants, particularly on women and young girls — Steyn cited actual disturbing cases — who are bearing the brunt of the radiating anarchic dynamic inherent in the circumstances.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2015/11/the-house-refugee-bill-is-a-fraud.php
Excerpts: “Polls indicate that most Americans oppose importing thousands of Syrian refugees in particular, and more immigrants in general. So naturally, in his first important act as House Speaker, Paul Ryan is reported to be rushing to the floor, as early as tomorrow, a bill that will insure that President Obama gets his way on the issue… A recent analysis finds that admitting 10,000 refugees to the United States presents a net lifetime cost to taxpayers of $6.5 billion, meaning that under the current plan to admit 85,000 refugees this fiscal year, taxpayers will be on the hook for $55 billion. For the cost of resettling one refugee in America, we could successfully resettle 12 refugees in the region. Creating safe-zones in Syria and the region is a vastly more effective and compassionate strategy. Such a proposal recently was put forth by former Secretary of Defense Gates and General Petraeus, among others.”

Excerpts: “With Open Gates, the forced collective suicide of European nations.”

http://www.steynonline.com/7244/the-clock-ticks-on
Excerpts: “Sweden is fast approaching a complete collapse. More and more municipalities are raising the alarm that if the migrants keep coming at this pace, the government can no longer guarantee normal service to its citizens.”

http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/6793/germany-20-million-muslims
Excerpts: “The migration crisis has the potential to destabilize governments, countries and the whole European continent.”

PREPARING TO REGULATE ALL HUMAN ACTIVITY by G Edward Griffin (this is an audio publication)

https://youtu.be/Gj9xD4bj2h4

Excerpts: “Despite the mainstream media, educational establishment, entertainment industry, governments, global powers, and scientific researchers seeming to close ranks claiming “97% consensus” on human-caused global warming, glaring conflicts of interest indicate massive collusion pointed at stripping away our individual liberties and our national sovereignty, with the ultimate objective of regulating ALL HUMAN ACTIVITY.”


http://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-buybacks-cannibalized/

Excerpts: Led by agenda-setting New York State and radical left-winger Al Gore the progressive persecution of climate change skeptics by the states is underway. Top law enforcement officers in several states are joining with the Chicken Littles of green activism to weaponize the scientifically dubious argument that human activity is not only changing the earth’s climate but that unprecedented world catastrophe awaits unless draconian, economy-killing carbon emission controls are imposed more or less immediately.

http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2016/02/the-profiteers-of-climate-doom.php

Excerpts: The alarmists’ predictions of global warming resulting from increased CO2 in the atmosphere have failed to come true. In scientific terms, that is the end of the story. A theory that is refuted by observation is wrong. But since billions of dollars in government money are flowing into the alarmists’ coffers, they endlessly try to make excuses for their theory’s failure, even as they cover up that failure by retroactively altering temperature records. This is the greatest scandal in the history of science, in my opinion.


http://mobile.wnd.com/2015/11/u-n-tribunal-to-judge-u-s-for-climate-debt/

Excerpts: “Global tyranny: at the upcoming United Nations Climate Summit in Paris, participating nations have prepared a treaty that would create an ‘International Tribunal of Climate Justice’ giving Third World countries the power to haul the U.S. into a global court with enforcement powers… The purpose of this Agreement (treaty) is to enhance the full, effective and sustained implementation of the Convention and to strengthen and support the global response to the urgent threat of climate change by further addressing its causes and minimizing its adverse effects. Parties recognize based on the latest scientific knowledge that deep cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions [anthropogenic climate forcers] and enhanced actions to address climate change and its adverse effects are urgently required. An International Tribunal of Climate Justice as a compliance mechanism is hereby established to address cases of non-compliance of the commitments of developed country Parties on mitigation, adaptation, finance, technology development, transfer and transparency of action and support, including through the development of an indicative list of consequences, taking into account the cause, type, degree and frequency of non-compliance.”

Excerpts: “The latest moves to shut old coal-fired plants deemed uneconomic — the most recent, Eggborough, announced just two weeks ago — could trigger electricity price spikes and put UK businesses with interruptible contracts at greater risk of supply curbs.”


http://www.cnsnews.com/commentary/h-sterling-burnett/obama-delivers-deathblow-coal-clean-power-plan

Excerpts: “Obama’s misguided focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions in order to prevent a completely theoretical anthropogenic climate change catastrophe is destroying U.S. jobs, threatening electric power reliability and affordability, and doing absolutely nothing to prevent climate change. By the administration’s own estimates, the Clean Power Plan would reduce future global temperature by less than a hundredth of a degree, an amount thermometers can’t even measure. Obama’s climate obsession comes at a high price for electric power ratepayers. Since Obama ascended to the presidency, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports coal’s share of the nation’s electric supply fell from 48 percent in 2007 to 39 percent in 2014. Because coal is a low-cost source of electricity, electric power prices have risen 15 percent since Obama became president, despite historically low inflation.”


http://cnsnews.com/news/article/kathleen-brown/nobel-prize-winning-physicist-obama-dead-wrong-global-warming-0

Excerpts: “’Everything is going to hell. But the facts are that in the last 100 years we have measured the temperature, it has gone up 0.8 degrees and everything in the world has gotten better…We live better, we have better work, better health, better everything — but if we go [up] another 0.8 degrees, we’re gonna die, I guess,’ he said sarcastically. Giaever also does not perceive a threat in rising carbon dioxide (CO2) levels, noting that ‘if you have more CO2 the plant grows faster…It’s a wonderful thing, but they don’t talk about that in Nature magazine,’ which he accused of wanting to ‘cash in on the [global warming] fad.’”


Excerpts: “Unable to address Texas senator Ted Cruz’s questions about “the Pause” — the apparent global-warming standstill, now almost 19 years long, …”

Excerpts: “Alarmist scientists have gone so far as to urge the Obama administration to prosecute criminally scientists who disagree with them”

Germany waters down climate protection plan

Excerpts: Germany has abandoned plans to set out a timetable to exit coal-fired power production and scrapped C02 emissions reduction goals for individual sectors, according to the latest draft of an environment ministry document seen by Reuters on Wednesday.  An earlier version of the draft document that was leaked in May had suggested that Germany should phase out coal-fired power production “well before 2050” as part of a package of measures to help Berlin achieve its climate goals.  The new version, which was revised following consultation with the economy and energy ministry, has also deleted specific concrete C02 emissions savings targets for the energy, industry, transport and agriculture sectors.
