Fed Fake Taper Means Loose Money Forever

Fed Fake Taper Means Loose Money Foreverby Fintan Dunne, 19th Dec 2013 @ 11pm ET

The latest Taper Caper has been a propaganda-enabled total misdirection.

In truth, the Fed's feeble Taper was an admission of defeat, wrapped in a cloak of token austerity. In truth, it was the final capitulation to the new abnormal. A guarantee of broken markets and stealth confiscation from savers for the foreseeable future.

It was not the beginning of the end to loose money. It was the entrenchment of that policy.

To uncover the truth of the Federal Open Market Committee statement, watch the modifying words - not the impressive-sounding financial phrases.

For example, words like "if" and "however", give the lie to the Fed's headline plan to continue to Taper by degrees:
If incoming information broadly supports the Committee’s expectation of ongoing improvement in labor market conditions and inflation moving back toward its longer-run objective, the Committee will likely reduc…

Zuma Should Stand Down, says Mbeki

Zuma Should Stand Down, says Mbeki
Promises 'Decisive' Move to Rescue an 'Astray' ANCby Fintan Dunne, 12th December 2013.

Former South African president, Thabo Mbeki has intimated that the current president Jacob Zumashould step aside, in the light of corruption allegations.

Reminded by Channel4's Jon Snow, that Mbeki himself had "gone quietly" when challenged by Zuma, Snow asked if the same logic applied now.

Mbeki responded that "if a president found himself in a similar situation" as he[Mbeki] once had, then it would be better to stand aside in the interests of the nation.

Pressed further in the TV interview on whether action would be taken within the ANC to address these issues, Mbeki said that the ANC membership was still inspired by Mandela's ideals, and that a "decisive" move would take place to ensure that the ANC does not go "astray".

Mbeki's comments to the UK national broadcaster mark the first time he has signa…

Mandela's Conscience Lives: In Thabo Mbeki

Mandela's Conscience Lives:
In Thabo Mbekiby Fintan Dunne, 10th December 2013.

When former South African president, Thabo Mbeki arrived to a hero's welcome at the FNB stadium, in Soweto today, for Nelson Mandela's celebration memorial service - he was, in effect, bestowed by the crowd with the mantle of Mandela's Conscience.

They stood to chant "Mbeki, Mbeki," with some making bicycling movements with their arms to signal their desire to 'rotate' away from current ANC leader, Jacob Zuma and his deeply corrupted South African presidency.

Even the notoriously anti-Mbeki, Mail and Guardian's associate editor @phillipdewet had to admit: 
"Well I never. Mbeki just got the loude…

Beirut Bombs Confirm Iran Deal Imminent

Image
by Fintan Dunne - 19th Nov 2013 @ 11pmEST

In the wake of two explosions targeting the Iranian embassy in Beirut, the clearing dust reveals a key intelligence implication of the bombing : a successful international deal with Iran is imminent.

The signs have been pointing towards resolution, since Sunday, when the Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Iran sees "no necessity for [its] right to enrichment to be recognised."

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani later spoke with Putin and China's Xi. Vladimir Putin was officially quoted telling Rouhani that there was a “real chance” of deal over the Iranian nuclear program. Momentum was clearly gathering.

On Tuesday afternoon, David Cameron made the first phone call by a British prime minister to an Iranian president in over a decade. The call may well have been in response to the bombs in Beirut earlier that day.

The timing of those blasts are a clear warning by parties hostile to a negotiated solution. Iran p…

Are You White? Wheat Is Why.

Proof of Wheat's Human Toxicity.

By Fintan Dunne, 18th Nov, 2013 

There's been some backlash against the growing public focus on the role of wheat in gut-related inflammation and autoimmune disorders. 

Especially since Dr. Will Davis penned "Wheat Belly," and raised the profile of this largely unrecognized killer.

Critics admit that wheat gluten drives celiac disease, but argue that the condition is relatively rare, linked to a specific genotype and not a concern for the broader population.

Here's compelling evidence otherwise. 

Wheat has more toxic content than just the gluten 'gliadin' implicated in celiac disease. It also contains tiny lectins called wheat germ agglutinin (WGA). If you are white in skin tone, it is the WGA in wheat which helped give your forbears and you that distinctive pale pallor!

Allow me back that up.
Broadly speaking, racial skin tone lightens as one moves away from the equatorial lattitudes towards the poles. People living at the same l…

US and Iran Signal "Done Deal, It's Over"

by Fintan Dunne, BreakForNews.com - 26th Sept, 2013 @ 10:00pmET

The political theater may take years, but mere months will see the US begin a phased removal of sanctions on Iran, according to signals from John Kerry and Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Amid an upbeat tone from the two parties, AP reports:
Iran’s foreign minister is urging step-by-step compromises between his country and world powers to advance negotiations over Tehran’s nuclear ambitions. Mohammad Javad Zarif’s remarks on Iran’s state TV referred to “phased actions” after reviving stalled talks with a six-nation group.... [source]
Meanwhile, in the US, John Kerry was also on TV, as AFP reported:
Speaking to CBS News 60 Minutes, US Secretary of State John Kerry said that if Iran takes rapid measures to cooperate with international monitoring of its nuclear program, Washington could begin lifting sanctions within months. [source]
A similar template of phased verifiable countermoves also recently resolved the Syr…

Bitcoin or Bust? Rigged Price May Crater

Sometimes, it takes a Pirate to catch a Shark.

The founder of Sweden's first Pirate Party, Rick Falkvinge, has just shown how trading 'sharks' are nosing around the Bitcoin market, repeatedly manipulating it, and picking off unwitting victims.
For example, he's found trading patterns where huge streams of bitcoin trading transactions for exactly one bitcoin, are spaced exactly five seconds apart. He's also shown streams of buy orders placed only 0.0001 bitcoin apart in price. There are coordinated transactions, where one of a team of price-manipulators is selling to another, to create the illusion of real market dynamics.
It's covert. Even on Wall St. - it's highly illegal. And it's rampant in Bitcoin trading.
Falkvinge had even found the same sucker-bait trading cycle repeating five times in sequence over recent weeks. The tactics drove the bitcoin price higher, even as it gamed other market pla…

Taper Caper Shreds Fed's Cred

Taper Caper Shreds Fed's Cred
by Fintan Dunne - 18th Sept 2013 @ 9:30pmET
The US Federal Reserve badly damaged its credibility today.

Having signaled for months a tapering of it's $85 Billion QE program, the failure to deliver means that all those Fed 'taper' noises were either pure incompetence or deliberately malign misdirection. 

Either way their cred is shred.

Huge global capital flows were triggered by the taper signals. And those Big Money players expect the Fed's signals to be broadly reliable. So much for reliability. 

So why did the Fed disappoint?

On the face of it, if you strip away the fake 'recovery,' the US is actually in recession. Thus the Fed is locked in to QEx, because it can hardly tighten policy heading into recession. 

That is the face of conventional media-created 'wisdom'. In truth, the move has little to do with the economy - and lots to do with the mortgage and bond markets. 

The housing market is rolling over and never saw a substa…

Sniper On Loose After D.C. Navy Yard Slayings

Image
There's a sniper on the loose from the scene of the D.C. navy Yard mass killings. A sniper not apprehended and now not even sought by authorities. A sniper whose killing success is itself evidence of his handiwork.

Late Monday, D.C. police called off their earlier lookout for a black male suspect between the ages of 40 and 50 in a "drab," olive, military-style uniform; approximately 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, medium complexion with graying sideburns.

That individual may have been the sniper - but could be a phantom decoy reported to create space for the real sniper's escape. Either way, the eyewitness accounts and the killed-to-injured ratio confirm his presence.

The eyewitness accounts speak of two shooters:
Witnesses described a gunman opening fire from a fourth-floor overlook, aiming down on people in the cafeteria on the main floor. Others said a gunman fired at them in a third-floor hallway. It was not clear whether the witnesses on different floors were describing t…

Kerry Blinks, Russia and Syria Pounce

Image
by Fintan Dunne - 9 Sept 2013 @ 2:00pmET Updated 3:00pmET

Call it a tactical maneuver; call it pragmatic politics; call it what you will. But it seems that John Kerry, on behalf of the Obama administration, has blinked on Syria. 

Earlier Monday, alongside the UK foreign secretary, William Hague, Kerry made what are being presented as merely unscripted remarks:
The US secretary of state has said that President Bashar al-Assad has one week to hand over his entire stock of chemical weapons to avoid a military attack. But Kerry added that he had no expectation that the Syrian leader would comply.
The US state department explained that Kerry's point was: "that this brutal dictator [...] cannot be trusted to turn over chemical weapons, otherwise he would have done so long ago"Within hours of Kerry's comments, Russia's foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, had responded:
"If the establishment of international control over chemical weapons in that country would allow avoiding …

Dzhokhar Was Unarmed:
Feds Lied About Boat Shootout With 'Suspect 2'

by Fintan Dunne, BreakForNews.com 25 April 2013 @ 9:30pmET 

According to officials, as reported by CNN, no firearm was found in the boat where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was holed up.

Yet the criminal complaint states that there was: "a standoff between the boat's occupant and the police involving gunfire."

That's a finely crafted choice of words: the police assault on the boat "involved gunfire," but it seems only the police were armed.

This development calls into question the mainstream media's reporting, and the veracity of all the law enforcement testimony forming the basis for the criminal complaint.

When law enforcement first came on the boat, there was a clearly audible around 10 second burst of gunfire, which was heard by many nearby to the scene and reported on live by CNN. Subsequent press photos of the boat show its side pock-marked with bullet holes.

Only after that gunfire was hea…
