It is indeed encouraging to learn that this particular parasite has met with an early yet well-deserved death.
The news should be of some comfort to those who are left with a possibly life-threatening condition, brought on by this thug’s contempt for his victims.

The Irish people were looted of tens of billions to bail out Anglo Irish bank, and it was done on the basis of lies and trickery. The Irish Independent newspaper has published secret recordings from 2008, which reveal two senior Anglo Irish executives – John Bowe, then head of capital markets, and Peter Fitzgerald, the former head of retail banking – spilling the beans.
In essence, John Bowe knew that the 7bn euros asked for in a bailout was nowhere near enough, and that the real bailout required was much higher. At the time, the 7bn requested was, he said, a figure “picked out of my arse”. The strategy was to play the government for total suckers, lure it and central bank in, to ensure “they had skin in the game”, so that when the full extent of the black hole was revealed the bailouts had to continue. It worked and the Irish people were looted of 30bn euros.
How could it be that billions of taxpayers money was commited without thorough and rigorous audits? Well this is how government spends money all the time. Yet again, Milton Friedman is proven right in that spending other people’s money on somebody else (which is all government spending) is the worst possible way of handling money. Those doing the spending have no care for the money or for what it buys.

Fox accuses hens of raiding the coop
Federal prosecutors have filed a sealed criminal complaint against Edward Snowden. The United States has asked Hong Kong to detain him on a provisional arrest warrant. Snowden was charged with espionage, theft and conversion of government property.
The Telegraph reports the possiblility of Hong Kong authorities complying, though I’d have thought that Peking would rather like to keep Snowden on their turf. He knows the extent and methods of US state security organs. You’d think that the Chinese government would like a chat with him at least rather than hand him back.
Michael Rozeff posits an interesting question: how would Americans have regarded the hypothetical whistle-blower Eduard Snowdenski, who might have spilled the beans on te NKVD prior to defecting? Probably a brave hero, I’d say.
What a surprise that GCHQ is chief among the snoopers. According to The Guardian’s latest leaks from Snowden, those parasitic doughnut-munchers have programmes “aimed at scooping up as much online and telephone traffic as possible”, and that “this is all being carried out without any form of public acknowledgement or debate”.
“It’s not just a US problem. The UK has a huge dog in this fight,” Snowden told the Guardian. “They  are worse than the US.”
Did politicians have any idea that GCHQ has been strip mining our private information and handing it all over to their fellow doughnut-munching parasites in the US? Either (as I suspect) they did not, or they did, which suggests they’re complicit in espionage against the British people for and on behalf of a foreign country.
Citizens are reminded that terrorists hate us for our freedoms.

The neocons make their move. Obama confirms that his paymasters will supply the terrorists, butchers and cannibals tearing Syria apart. Five minutes later the UK and France join in, with The Telegraph reporting that the three gangs (not “us or “we”) are meeting to decide how to run them weapons in.
Remember this and all the other surrenders to terror when we’re next supposd to believe that “we don’t talk to terrorists”. Of course they do, they always do, and now they’re again supplying the arms to terrorists so they can terrorise. Remember also that no evidence of sarin gas use by Assad has been presented. WMD lies? Fancy that! But they have to lie because the truth is that Assad is winning, and they just don’t like Assad. Do they know what the consequences will be? Of course not. We’ve seen that they have no idea. We know it.
So on the word of professonal spokesliars we’re supposed to believe that Assad is the bad one. The other side are “the rebels” see. Even when they murder in cold blood, and set off car bombs, and strafe kneeling prisoners with AK47s and cut out and chew into the hearts of slain enemies, they’re “the rebels” and now our money is taken to enable them to carry on terrorising. It’s a wicked, evil thing, but that’s our governors. Michael Rozeff describes them perfectly:
Neocons are a contemptible, vile, evil and despicable lot. Obama threw in with them on Iran sanctions, on Libya, on drone warfare throughout the world, on assassination policy, on government spying, on persecution of whistleblowers, and on government secrecy. Count Obama as a neocon. He too is a contemptible lying knave, a dishonest and unscrupulous scoundrel, intent as are the necons, on expanding the American empire. This does not create a better world, I am sorry to say, but the neocons are too blind to see and understand this.

Well, not British spies …
The old dictum is that the you should never believe anything until it has been officially denied. In that case we can now assume that the security wing of the state is spying on us.
Following the revelation that GCHQ (the UK’s NSA) commissioned 197 reports from the PRISM programme last year, Hague says that they do not “indiscriminately trawl” our emails, and that he has a “high level of confidence” that British intelligence agencies act within the law. Which begs the question: what does the law say then?
Hague didn’t address the obvious fact that the National Stasi Agency is spying on us. If not, how did it come up with 197 intelligence reports? He also deplores the leaks which have happened. Well I deplore foreigners spying on the British people and keeping our emails on their servers. I also should have a reasonable expection that a British Foreign Secretary will tell the feds to back off, but we’re well past the age of government ministers defending our liberties.
Why is the NSA allowed to spy on us and keep our info? Maybe that gets around laws which restrict the spooks at GCHQ: “Hey mate, you do the spying and let us have the info when we call for it.” That’s what it sounds like to me.

D-Notice: A government “request” (unlawful order) to the media to not report specific pieces of information.
Private and Confidential: Not for publication, broadcast or use on social media.
Defence Advisory Notice
There have been a number of articles recently in connection with some of the ways in which the UK Intelligence Services obtain information from foreign sources.
Although none of these recent articles has contravened any of the guidelines contained within the Defence Advisory Notice System, the intelligence services are concerned that further developments of this same theme may begin to jeopardize both national security and possibly UK personnel…
There must be real panic in Whitehall right now. Well every D-Notice deserves an FU-Notice in return. What they’re saying is: “We’re breaking the law in spying on the people, but don’t report it.” From The Guardian:
Ministers are under mounting pressure to explain whether they authorised GCHQ to gather intelligence on Britons from the world’s biggest internet companies via a covertly run operation set up by America’s top spy agency.
MPs, academics and campaign groups rounded on the government after the Guardian disclosed that GCHQ, the UK’s electronic eavesdropping and security headquarters, had been supplied with information from the top secret system.

The Telegraph: Andorra bows to EU pressure to introduce income tax
Beautiful Andorra has been bullied by the international bankster cartel into looting an income tax from the people for the first time. This on top of recent introductions of a corporate tax and VAT for the first time. What’s more, a bill will be introduced into parliament intended to “progressively bring its tax system in line with international standards”.
I’ve been to Andorra. It’s a stunning, beautiful place with roads and buildings and food and all those things which the propaganda says will disappear unless we’re massively looted. The Telegraph passes this off by saying it “has relied on banking secrecy, tourism and duty-free trade to become a financial and commercial succes”. So privacy, welcoming visitors and free trade are sufficient.
What comes next, when the looting is “in line with international standards” is inevitable: debts secured against the future sweat of Andorrans, to be paid back by these newly levied taxes. What today is a beautiful, civilised and wealthy place – the kind of place anywhere can be – will become another heavily indebted and crushed regulatory state. There’s no escape. Other “tax havens” (i.e. anywhere currently beyond the reach of the banksters) are marked for assimiliation. You will be denied liberty, everywhere.

The Telegraph: Europe faces lost decade, says Mark Carney
Mark Carney, the incoming Bank of England Governor, has warned that Europe could face a decade of stagnation unless it takes the kind of bold measures seen in Japan.
In words that will underline his status as a monetary activist and fuel speculation that he will try to relaunch quantitative easing (QE) when he arrives in the UK, Mr Carney applauded Japan’s “bold policy experiment” to boost dramatically its own QE programme.
What he means, I think, is that to avoid a “lost decade”, Europe must copy the madness which extended the Great Depression from 1929 to 1945, and which in Japan has ensured two lost decades.
Mind how you go people. It sounds like the central banksters are about to go completely mental.

Much political posturing today at the news that oil firms might have colluded to drive up fuel prices.
The real fuel scandal is that prices are driven up and that we are ripped off every day, because most of the price is the cut the state takes. We can’t do anything about it because they have a gun to our heads.

It’s not just the CIA dropping off the cash. Now we find that MI6 is doing it too.
British intelligence is handing “bundles” of cash over to Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai for special peace projects despite warnings that handouts are promoting corruption at the heart of his regime.
Gosh, do you reckon that the Karzai crew might not be accounting for every penny of our cash? How shocking it would be to find out that our cash is being trousered by a bunch of Pashtun gangsters, which is all the ruling class is over there.
Kabul will fall five minutes after we leave. I fully expect Karzai to pop up in Switzerland just in time.
