Tonight, "V, The Guerrilla Economist" will be back, this time taking us deeper into the labyrinth of lies that is our global economic system. Together with Steve Quayle, they will expose what we are about to not only witness, but experience firsthand. A ubiquitous banking, techno feudalistic system and the coming "allowance code" that will ultimately dictate your financial life to such an extent that you will be reduced to a global number through your global identity account. A system that will be able to monitor every transaction you make, and further dictate your ability to live where you want, buy what you want, and oversee everything you so. An economic "big brother" scenario that is closer than you suspect.

A police union spokesman said surveillance footage of the attacker showed him as tall and bearded, aged about 35, possibly of North African origin and wearing a white Arab-style tunic.
(BBC) French authorities are investigating whether the stabbing of a soldier in a Paris suburb was a copycat attack in the wake of the murder of Dummer Lee Rigby, killed in London this week.
The soldier was on patrol in the area of La Defense when he was stabbed in the neck by an unknown man who escaped.
His injuries are not thought to be life-threatening.
French President Francois Hollande said all possibilities were being explored but warned against hasty conclusions.
The 23-year-old was patrolling in uniform with two colleagues in the suburban railway station at La Defense late on Saturday afternoon.
He was attacked from behind by a man wielding a knife or a box-cutter. The assailant, whose identity is unknown, ran away and is being sought by police.
No motive has been established for the attack.
Mr Hollande said every hypothesis must be investigated, but no link had yet been established to the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in the Woolwich area of London on Wednesday.
"I don't think at this stage that there can be a link, but we're examining all the elements and we're asking our soldiers to increase their level of vigilance," he said, while on an official visit to Ethiopia.
Shortly after the attack on Drummer Rigby, a man was filmed nearby saying he had carried out the attack because British soldiers killed Muslims every day.
Two men have been arrested and remain in hospital after they were shot by police.
Both men were known to the security services, sources told the BBC.
A man who was struck 10 times by a baton-wielding police officer in Sacramento has died in custody.
Video obtained by Sacramento's CBS13 showed the man being struck multiple times by a female officer while a male officer restrained him Friday evening.
The man, who was in his 40s, was then handcuffed, at which point officers realized he was unresponsive. They rushed him to a hospital, where he died.
The Sacramento Bee reports that the fracas began Friday afternoon after a female clerk at a Metro PCS cell phone store called the cops.
Sacramento police spokesman Doug Morse told the Bee that officers arrived to the store on Folsom Blvd. to find the man holding the door to the store shut so they couldn't get in.
Police then forced their way inside. Morse said that's when the man became violent, and the altercation spilled out to the sidewalks.
Morse added that the Sacramento police department is investigating the man's death and, following protocol, the two officers involved in the suspect's apprehension have been placed on administrative leave.
Red Ice Radio - Joseph P. Farrell - Fake Terrorism, Covert Wars & ET Threat Assessment
Joseph P. Farrell has a doctorate in Patristics from the University of Oxford and pursues research in physics, alternative history and science and "strange stuff." He is the author of many books in the field of alternative research. In the first hour we begin on the Boston Marathon bombings and what appears to an internal Gladio Operation with a huge geopolitical agenda, which could be spun in a variety of ways. Then, we'll discuss Putin's clash with the world government agenda. Later, Joseph talks about hidden conflicts and the creation of a breakaway civilization by the Nazis. He discusses the advanced technology that they took with them at the end of the war and psychological war that they waged for decades on America and NATO. He'll talk about how our system is based on stolen gold. Farrell explains why he thinks technology has moved into an entirely new ball game. In the second hour, we'll speak more on the economic events in the Eurozone and we'll discuss the BRIC nation's grievances against the financial oligarchs of the west. Joseph talks about the importance of the political center as there is no real party of opposition. He tells why he thinks the internet will be playing a bigger role in the future. The hour ends on the military assessment of the ET threat. Joseph explains why he believes they may be right.
A mass extinction happens when over 75 percent of all species on the planet die in a period of less than two million years. That may sound long to you, but it's the blink of an eye in geologic time. There have been five mass extinctions on Earth over the past 540 million years, sometimes caused by catastrophic disasters, and sometimes by quiet, insidious events like invasive species taking over the planet.
7. Earth Is Bubbling with Super Volcanoes
Yellowstone Park in the United States is actually a volcano caldera, a thin cork of earth that sits on top of a massive cache of broiling magma. And this super-volcano could blow any time. The last time Earth witnessed an explosion of this size was in 1812, when Mount Tambora in Indonesia erupted so profusely that the Earth's climate cooled for several years afterwards. Even more frightening is the prospect that another kind of super volcano, called a large igneous province (LIP), could become active sometime in the future.
A now-inactive LIP, called the Siberian Traps, erupted 250 million years ago. It spewed so much sulfur, carbon other greenhouse gases into the air that the Earth experienced a climate change catastrophe, vacillating wildly between extreme heat and cold until 95 percent of all life had died. This mass extinction was so bad it's been nicknamed "the Great Dying" by geologists. Yellowstone is not a LIP, but if it explodes into a super eruption, the damage will be incredible. Super volcanoes are an ever-present threat, that have haunted the Earth for millions of years.
6. Invasive Species Are Everywhere
On Earth, humans have aggressively invaded every continent except Antarctica, swelling our population to over 7 billion individuals and eating everything in sight. Like rats and cockroaches, we are the ultimate invasive species, pushing many creatures out of their native habitats which could, ultimately, kill those creatures on a huge scale. Our population could grow a lot bigger before humans are endangered, but that doesn't mean we wouldn't harm other species. About 359 million years ago, 75 percent of all species on Earth died during the Devonian mass extinction. Geologist Alicia Stigall has evidence that this horrific slaughter was the result of invasive species like sharks (yes, there were sharks hundreds of millions of years ago) aggressively eating all the food in
Jason Liosatos with Pepe Escobar investigative journalist, author and geo political analyst. We talk about the US full spectrum dominance on the global war on terror and the inevitable blowbacks, consequences and feedback loops from their actions and rhetoric, and their financial supporting and weaponizing of the so called rebels who inevitably turn against them. Also the fact that the Pentagon is the real global terror which perpetuates and proliferates itself. We also discuss Africom and NATO as the same thing, and Africom as the Pentagons official counter strategy against China in Africa.
Pepe also talks about our lack of free time and reflection as an overworked, exhausted population, too consumed by basic survival, with barely time to think, in order to seek out, look at, and embrace, the real news.
Max Keiser talks to Jim Rickards, author of Currency Wars, about why we don't need to worry about a recession - because we're in a depression! They discuss US Federal Chairman, Ben Bernanke's, plan to not Beggar Thy Neighbor, but Enrich They Neighbor by jumping out of the printing plane together with simultaneous devaluations. And, in terms of gold, Keiser and Rickards suggest maybe it's the Chinese manipulating the price of gold . . . and not the US Federal Reserve.
Currency Wars: The Making of the Next Global Crisis James Rickards
Alex Jones responded to Rachel Maddow's skewering of his special tornado-weather-machine-conspiracy theory on his radio show Friday by saying she looks like a man.
After noting that the media was out to get him by hounding people he went to high school with, Jones said, "Or they could just do what Mr. Maddow does, I mean Janet Reno—Janet Napolitano! I get them all confused." Jones pounded the desk in mock-frustration. "Pat from Saturday Night Live? No, no...Ron Maddow?"
"Nothing wrong with it, I mean, he's a handsome guy."
Jones then had a deep, meaningful moment. "I'm gonna be honest with everybody," he said, and after an extended pseudo-pause, "I'm attracted to Mr. Maddow, and that really conflicts my, uh...I always thought of myself as a heterosexual,but..."
"I wonder if Mr. Maddow is gonna join the Boy Scouts as a troop leader," Jones said, cracking himself up.
"I'm sorry, that's not right," he said. "I should criticize Rachel Maddow on lying to her audience."
Video Description : In this video series, I lay out a plan for a non-violent turnover of power, back to the Constitution and back to the people. We, the People are sick of the bullshit! We're tired of government controlling our lives and we want our freedom. Some are making videos and some are sitting on the sidelines, waiting to vote the mfrs out of office! This is pure bullshit! You can't vote the mfrs out of office IF THEY RIG THE ELECTIONS! Cut out the bullshit, people! Get real! Stop drinking the light beer and wake up to the truth! The government is nothing but a gun to your head and they can't wait to pull the trigger! We must do something now, but what? You decide! I advocate a peaceful return to our US Constitution and we need to start representing ourselves, because our representatives don't represent us and this is bullshit, people! Bullshit! It's pure, unadulterated bullshit! If you think they're going to allow you to vote them out of office, you have too much fluoride in your drinking water! This is bullshit! Even a light beer drinker could see it!
Are US banks untouchable?
We ask why no charges have been brought against US banking institutions for their part in the global financial crisis. We also ask why the US still refuses to recognize Nicolas Maduro as the elected Venezuelan president? Shihab Rattansi discusses with guests Russel Mokhiber, the editor of Corporate Crime Reporter; and Bartlett Naylor, the financial policy advocate at Public Citizen, and a former chief of investigations for the US Senate Banking Committee.
In South Korea in March, more than 30,000 computers and servers at the country's two largest broadcasters, one cable channel and three banks out of commission. For hours, customers could not take out money from their accounts. After first pointing fingers at North Korea, and then China...the confused South Korean Communications Commission said it was difficult, maybe impossible to identify the perpetrators. But one man, Jaime Blasco, says he was able to identify the hackers as originating in China. And his words carry weight. He is one of the world's most experienced private investigators of cyber attacks. Born in Spain and now working in the United States, his clients include several governmentsin Europe as well as corporations in banking, energy, defense and telecommunications who turn to him in emergencies.
Corporatism has transformed our capitalist system into this fascist nightmare. CORPORATIONS trough lobbying efforts effectively write US laws. Guess whom those laws are going to benefit? When PRIVATE entity controls money supply of a nation as great as US there is no wonder those banks that own Fed are untouchable everywhere in the World. Hence bailouts for them and bills for the rest of us. His last point is really where his analysis is disintegrating. He wants it both ways. In Soviet Union and other communist countries production was controlled by state or public and was directed even on net loss(negative profit), in US most of drug making companies are PRIVATE, and work for PROFIT which is the case for most other companies and industries too. And that is main thing that differentiates sovietized economy from a capitalist one. In conclusion he does not distinguish between small business and corporations. I agree that small business is overburdened by laws and rules but those rules in capitalism are imposed trough lobbying efforts on government by big CORPORATIONS doing everything to preserve their monopoly. So small business and state in age of globalization are both effectively victims of CORPORATIVISM.
I’m not sure how accurate the following quote it, but it does speak to our times.
“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country… corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
—U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864 (letter to Col. William F. Elkins)
