Farage: EU wants to steal money from Cypriots bank accounts

The Great Shell Game

The antics in Cyprus illuminate the real intentions of the globalists -
Banks on the Mediterranean island may never reopen, Germany warned after lawmakers late Tuesday turned down a $12.9 billion deal that would have seen Cypriots lose up to 10 per cent of their bank deposits.

Thousands of Cypriots withdrew savings over the weekend fearing the deal might pass, emptying ATMs and sending global money markets into a steep dive.

Banks were ordered to remain closed after finance officials predicted a run on savings and a huge outflow of capital if they were to reopen.
 But wait, it won't, couldn't, shouldn't even remotely happen here -
"The district court determined that under Utah law the relationship between a bank and a depositor is generally that of a debtor to a creditor, citing Walker Bank & Trust Co. v. First Security Corp., 9 Utah 2d 215, 341 P.2d 944, 946 (1959). United States v. Intermountain Region Concrete Co., 636 F.Supp. at 284."
So, when you're considering the question of whether you should "leave your money in the bank or not", you are committing a category error.  What you are actually deciding is "do I want to lend my money to this particular corporation or not"?

These days, loaning one's money to banks strikes me as about as wise as loaning it to the homeless guy living under the bridge.  Sure, there is a chance he's not going to spend it all on alcohol and default, but you have to assume that is the most probable outcome.

Not to be outdone, Chase appears to be practicing as well -
Millions of Chase Bank customers were affected by an unfortunately timed glitch which resulted in their checking and savings accounts showing a zero balance for several hours yesterday, prompting many to take to Twitter and express panic that their money had been stolen.
After Chase was hit by a denial of service attack last week, the bank blamed an “internal” issue for the glitch which left shocked customers thinking their online and mobile banking accounts had been emptied of deposits. The issue was resolved by 7:30pm PST.
 Don't say you haven't been warned. Repeatedly.

Highway Robbery - Cyprus Style

The banksters strike with lethal precision -

Cyprus will put forward a new proposal on Monday under which a tax-free threshold or a lower tax rate for smaller depositors could be introduced, media reports said on Monday, in a move aimed at easing the pain of a bailout agreement which will impose an unprecedented tax on savers.

Banks in the country were shut on Monday for a public holiday, and would remain shut on Tuesday and Wednesday, the agencies said. The news comes amid fears that the decision to force uninsured depositors to fund part of the country's bailout could many prompt savers to withdraw their holdings.

Got that? No? Let me spell it out:
  • "tax rate for smaller depositors" Theft of individual private property entrusted to a private institution (bank) for safe keeping.
  • "unprecedented" The overt nature of the confiscation is the only unprecedented bit about this.
  • "Banks in the country were shut on Monday" This was timed to give them the longest window possible to get this done
  • "...and would remain shut on Tuesday and Wednesday..." And the government is forcing the people to keep their money with the banks. (After all, a "bank run" is nothing more than private consumers voting 'no confidence' with their money.)
  •  "...a bailout agreement" The primary beneficiaries are the very institutions which are keeping this money in the first place. They screwed up and they want the government to provide cover while they raid other accounts!
 Let's continue...
Reuters cited a government source in Cyprus as saying that the country is mulling a tax-free threshold on the bank deposit levy for smaller deposits. It cited a parliamentary official as suggesting that deposits up to 20,000 euros could be exempt. Remaining deposits up to 100,000 euros would be taxed at 6.7 percent and those exceeding that amount at 9.9 percent, the official told the news agency on condition of anonymity.

Earlier Dow Jones cited two unnamed European officials as saying savers with 100,000 to 500,000 euros would face a 10 percent tax, while those with savings over 500,000 euros would be taxed at 15 percent. Those with savings up to 100,000 euros would be taxed at 3 percent, according the report.

Under the original plan, every depositor under 100,000 euros would be taxed at 6.75 percent and those over that amount would face a 9.9 percent tax. The Cypriot Parliament has delayed a vote on the plan to Tuesday, an EU official told Reuters, "to allow time for more negotiations".

Ooops...we risked upsetting too many at the same time, so let's just 'target the rich...'
European Central Bank board member Joerg Asmussen told reporters on the sidelines of a conference on Monday that it was for the Cypriot government to decide the structure of a levy on depositors, Reuters reported, but the overall volume of its contribution to the bailout had to amount to 5.8 billion euros.

The German and French governments were also open to changing the bailout deal for Cyprus, Reuters said.

A EU bank head told Cyprus that they had to fork over 5.8 billion euros at the behest of the Germans and French, how they choose to screw their populace is up to them.
In order to achieve debt sustainability, a contribution from Cyprus is necessary, a contribution from the banking sector, from depositors and owners," Steffen Seibert, a spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkels told the agency.

"How the country arrives at this contribution, how it divides it up, was and is up to the Cypriot government," he added. "As I believe the finance minister said last night on television, Germany could have imagined a different solution, a different staggering. But it was not our decision."
'We didn't tell them to do it exactly that way, so it wasn't us..."

Whether or not this passes is to an extent irrelevant. What is far more important is that this indicates a shift in bankster thinking away from subversive confiscation via inflation/gimmicking present over the last 30 years towards outright confiscation. Naturally, they are still trying to be coy about the whole thing by labeling it a tax on depositors, hoping they can get the cash on the helicopter before the populace realizes they've been had.

Here's the  Real Effect review. Note that all of these statements generally took place before the problems were reported in the first place, much less publicly recognized.

Oct 4, 2005 - Start of the US housing downturn phase
I believe that this will spread in this country gradually at first, but as the pinch of natural gas prices (40% higher in Wisconsin) combined with still increasing gasoline prices begin to strip Americans free cash, we will begin to see many people selling off properties in an attempt to capitalize on unrealistically high housing prices. After all, if you can't afford to heat one house, can you afford to heat two?

I strongly believe this will lead to a panicked sell-a-thon which will flood the market with overpriced housing, driving the prices down to at least pre-bubble levels. This will leave many holding large outstanding debts as much of their investment's value plummets.
Sept 17, 2008 - Start of the global correction
The long and short is they are bleeding the real assets out of the United States and passing them into foreign control. Make no mistake, they will bleed this country dry. Savings, checking, 401K, gold, assets, they want it all and will not stop until they get it. The only companies that survive will be those that primarily serve the industrial military complex. Overnight this country will be transformed into the new prison state for the Global Order. Get food, get water, get a gun and get ready to defend yourself.
 Jun 15, 2009 - Start of "Green Shoots"
This is not a recession, it is a depression. And a massive one at that. We are not at the bottom, we are on gaining momentum for the next plunge down. If you thought the last drop was bad, this one is going to strike fear into the hearts of men everywhere. The Dow will push through the last market low of 7,392.27, then 6000 and after that 3000. As capitol assets are ravished, what you will be seeing is the consumption of the golden goose in a proverbial feasting on the rotting carcass of the American consumer. 
  May 20, 2010 -
Here is the crux of the problem though. The globalists understood that the sheep would wake up, in fact they anticipated and planned for it by naming it the IMF riot. The relevant question is, who can outflank who here? Will the people get to the globalists before they are able to pull the trigger on the full police state?

Look for capital to fly from asset to asset, looking for a safe harbor, yet there is very few left to be found.
Jan 28, 2011 - Start of the "Arab Spring"
Look for continued unrest with some governments getting overthrown. But as I indicated earlier, the globalists are literally banking on this to occur. We are still not there yet though. More riots need to take place, some shots, some new faces and then, we go to war.

Oct 15, 2012 - Start of the "Civil War phase"
Got that? He's admitting Ordo Ab Chao (Look it up) in the US in order to merge us into an international system. This is the destabilization phase of the longer reaching Religious War (Series) that is being used to demonize religion. Look for a continuing resurgence in class warfare which first seeks to commit countries to civil war before turning their sights across the world to 'the other nations who did this to us!'

Habemus Papam - A Horse of a Different Color

On 3/13/13, at 8:13 on the back of white smoke filling the air, the call went out...Habemus Papam or "We Have a Pope!".
I announce to you a great joy:
We have a Pope!
The most eminent and most reverend Lord,
Lord Jorge Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church Bergoglio,
Who takes for himself the name of Francis.
Around the world billions of Catholic adherents were overjoyed as a new pontiff assumed the vacated papacy. In the middle of this celebration, one can't but help to notice the symbols. Symbols, symbols everywhere. But why are symbols important?

...because symbols mean something.
The first thing this morning Pope Francis went secretly to pray at the basilica church of St Mary Major in Rome. It is a custom for a new pope to go to this great church to pray, but for Pope Francis it was the first thing on his agenda. While he was there he made it a point to pray at the tomb of Pope St Pius V. Is this significant? Does it matter? If it is significant what does it signify?

...the Popes know their actions and words are significant. This is why they carefully choose their papal name. Benedict XVI chose his name for sound and significant reasons. Francis chose his name for sound and significant reasons. During his papacy, Benedict paid two very significant visits to the tomb of Pope St. Celestine V – the pope who decided that a pope could abdicate, and the only one who did abdicate for the good of the church. Benedict then follows his example and abdicates for the good of the church.
 One of my main criticisms of anyone part of any movement is that they are often immune to any form of correction.
'There are no problems.'
 'Ok, there are problems, but they're not that bad.'
'Ok, the problems are real bad, but everyone has problems.'

I have no issues with people being unaware of issues as not everyone is privy to all information at all times but I do have an issue with those who choose to demonize the messenger because they hate the message. Those who literally believe that destroying the messenger will kill the message - 
There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place. When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit.

“The tenants seized his servants; they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third. Then he sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way.  Last of all, he sent his son to them. ‘They will respect my son,’ he said.

“But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, ‘This is the heir. Come, let’s kill him and take his inheritance.’ So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. ~ Matthew 21:33-39
It is quite literally the reason why the Church recognizes good Friday. The cognitive dissonance can be absolutely stunning to behold in action. Enter the Trojan horse.

The Greeks had laid siege to the city of Troy for 10 years, trying in vain to take the city from the steadfast Trojan army. Something had to be done to secure the city, so they did the only sensible thing they could. They gave up and sailed away. But not before leaving behind a parting present - A large wooden horse as a kind of 'Thanks for playing!' parting gift for the victorious army. The Trojans wasted little time claiming this trophy by wheeling it through the city gates and celebrated a hard-fought epic war.

But not all was as it appeared.

For stealthily contained inside the horse was the patient Greek army, who at nightfall, exited the horse and slaughtered the Trojans, thus securing the city of Troy and ending the war.

For all appearances, the Trojans were absolutely correct. Why yes, this horse would make a very lovely addition to the city and it would raise the moral of the troops who had earned a respite. Besides, who would dare to do such a heinous thing to the Mighty Trojans, sneak into the fortress and...::gulp::...For a more recent perspective, ask conservatives about Chief Justice John Roberts...

Back to the subject at hand -
The very first thing Francis does is go to St Mary Major to pray at the tomb of Pius V.

So who was Pope St Pius V? He was a reforming pope who reigned from 1566- 1572. He cleaned up the curia, excommunicated heretical bishops, cleaned up the immorality in the church and swept the church clean– paving the way for the great surge in the church we call the Counter Reformation. He also excommunicated the tyrant Elizabeth I of England and formed the Holy League–a confederation of Catholic armies which eventually defeated the Ottoman Empire at the Battle of Lepanto. Pius V also instituted the Feast of Our Lady of Victories (nor the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary).

St Francis lived during a time of corruption, wealth and power in the church. He heard Christ say to him, “re-build my church.” Will Pope Francis also hear the call from Christ to “re-build my church” and not only be a new Francis but a new Pius V?

Rebuild the church? This begs the question - Into what exactly?

The Rise of the Alpha - Rome

Massimo Franco reports that there is in the Vatican “the widespread feeling is that, in order to rebuild, the next pope will first of all have to deconstruct, if not destroy.” - See more at:

Now that the symbolic pyre has been lit, it's time to light the real one. Presently, everyone is being prepared for a new strain of religion, not a reformation, but a complete destruction of the old and then reconstruction. An activity so large, that it needs to be managed by a new paradigm in popedom. It is no coincidence that one of the wars of the youthful new millennium involved the country formerly known as Babylon.

Predictions? I've got my eye on two at the moment, although this is very cursory at this point: Angelo Scola from Venice (The new Atlantis?) and Carlo Maria Martini for no particular reason yet. The date to keep an eye on is 3/17/2013. If we get the new pope that day, look out, the green revolution is on...

The destruction of Rome, long live New Babylon.

War, War and More War

It's war as far as the eye can see. In North Korea -
Saber-rattling rose Monday to new levels on the Korean peninsula, as Pyongyang officials "scrapped" the armistice credited for nearly 60 years of uneasy peace and then failed to answer a hotline phone.

"The Korean Armistice Agreement is to be scrapped completely just from today," said a spokesman for the North Korean military -- the Korean People's Army Supreme Command -- according to Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party.

North Korea cited the U.N. Security Council's unanimous passage last Thursday of tougher sanctions against Pyongyang for carrying out missile and nuclear tests.

"The collective sanction is precisely a declaration of war and an act of war against the DPRK," said the newspaper, using the initials of North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
Israel -
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has a “very short period of time” to decide whether to strike Iran’s nuclear infrastructure before Tehran possesses nuclear weapons, warned former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton in a radio interview last night.

Afghanistan -
America's fraught ties with Afghanistan suffered a jarring blow Sunday, when Afghan President Hamid Karzai said during a visit by the new U.S. defense secretary that the Taliban were killing Afghan civilians "in service to America."

Sticking with the US training the terrorists theme, Syria -
Americans are training Syrian anti-government fighters in Jordan, the German weekly Der Spiegel said on Sunday, quoting what it said were participants and organizers.

Spiegel said it was not clear whether the Americans worked for private firms or were from the army but said some wore uniforms. The training focused on use of anti-tank weaponry.

Some 200 men have already received such training over the past three months and there are plans in the future to provide training for a total 1,200 members of the "Free Syrian Army" in two camps in the south and the east of the country.
Venezuela -
The Obama administration has moved to kick two Venezuelan diplomats out of the United States in response to Venezuela’s expulsion last week of two U.S. officials from the U.S. embassy in Caracas, The Washington Times has learned.
 ...and in the U.S. - 
It confirmed that the Department of Homeland Security has issued an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. As reported elsewhere, some of this purchase order is for hollow-point rounds, forbidden by international law for use in war, along with a frightening amount specialized for snipers. Also reported elsewhere, at the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month. Therefore 1.6 billion rounds would be enough to sustain a hot war for 20+ years. In America.
There are several points that are very clear here:
1) The United States is actively involved in training terrorists because it serves our foreign policy interests.
2) War is coming and in some cases is already here due to the reasons stated six years ago -
I have said and will say again that this is escalation warfare designed to destroy the American will and ultimately the United States itself. With the logical progression being: Afghanistan -> Iraq -> Iran/Syria -> North Korea -> China/Russia(Japan?)
Like a bad divorce or a separating business, the business practices that were not only acceptable 10 years ago but commendable, become the 'I told you so' moments of the new age. People begin to turn on one another in droves as they need a raison d'etre for their pain, anguish and empty checkbooks. Surely they are not responsible in any way. It was THAT man, over there. He did this. He did this to us! And he must pay!
Let's see - Afghanistan and Iraq? Check. Syria? check. North Korea? Right on schedule. China/Russia with a hint of Japan. Check. American economic and societal meltdown? Check, check and mate.
