Patrick Henningsen -- Ukraine, Crimea, Russia and the West






Returning guest, Patrick Henningsen is an author and founder of the 21st Century Wire news website, an Associate Editor of alternative news site Infowars.com and regular geopolitical analyst for Russia Today. We'll begin discussing the absolute reality of globalists keeping the US and the west in a permanent state of war. Patrick talks about past revolutions and NGO's that prep the groundwork.

Patrick explains the history of Crimea and talks about why Russian military is really there, contrary to mainstream media reports. In the second hour, we'll discuss how people are being programmed to fear Russia, while all the while the US has military presence all over the world. Patrick explains the sensitive issues for those living in Crimea, Ukraine and Russia, specifically after WWII. We'll also talk about the great disconnect between the people and their political leadership and how politics is nothing about the voice of the people.

IRS Rules Bitcoin is Property and Subject to Capital Gains Tax

BITCOIN IS NOW A TAXABLE ASSET - IRS Says Bitcoins are Property and Not Currency : The Internal Revenue Service has determined that bitcoin will be treated as property, not currency. In its first big ruling on the virtual currency on Tuesday, the IRS said that bitcoin does not have "legal tender status." As a result of bitcoin being regarded as property, it can be treated as capital assets, governed by the same rules as stocks and bonds. In addition, the IRS said that people who receive wages in bitcoins would also be subject to federal income and payroll taxes.




Wading into a murky tax question for the digital age, the U.S. Internal Revenue Service said on Tuesday that bitcoins and other virtual currencies are to be treated, for tax purposes, as property and not as currency.

"General tax principles that apply to property transactions apply to transactions using virtual currency," the IRS said in a statement, meaning that bitcoins would be taxed as ordinary income or as assets subject to capital gains taxes, depending on the circumstance.

Bitcoin, the best-known virtual currency, started circulating in 2009. Its present market value is around $8 billion, with up to 80,000 transactions occurring daily, according to accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

Recent incidents have brought the currency under new regulatory scrutiny, such as the failure of Mt. Gox, a Tokyo-based exchange that filed for bankruptcy after losing an estimated $650 million worth of customer bitcoins.

Unlike conventional money, bitcoin is generated by computers and is independent of control or backing by any government or central bank, which its proponents like, but which also has led to calls for more guidance on U.S. tax treatment.

The IRS supplied that in its statement, which dealt a blow to bitcoin "miners," who unlock new bitcoins online. The IRS said miners must include the fair market value of the virtual currency as gross income on the date of receipt.

This change "is a disincentive to start looking for bitcoins," said John Barrie, a partner with law firm Bryan Cave LLP, who advises charities that receive bitcoins as donations.

NOT LEGAL TENDER

The IRS also said that virtual currency is not to be treated as legal-tender currency to determine if a transaction causes a foreign currency gain or loss under U.S. tax law.

"The character of gain or loss from the sale or exchange of virtual currency depends on whether the virtual currency is a capital asset in the hands of the taxpayer," the IRS said.

However, when virtual currency is held as inventory or other property mainly for sale to customers in a trade or business, ordinary gains or losses are generally incurred, the IRS said.

Capital gains and losses are taxable and deductible at different rates and amounts than ordinary gains and losses.

Democratic Senator Tom Carper, who chaired a Senate committee hearing last year on bitcoin, said in a statement that the IRS guidance "provides clarity for taxpayers who want to ensure that they're doing the right thing and playing by the rules when utilizing bitcoin and other digital currencies."

A man who was traveling through Manchester, New Hampshire was stopped and harassed by the TSA after he opted out of going through a body scanner. The official reason for further interrogation, according to the screeners, was "We saw Bitcoin in your bag and need to check."

For anyone living under a rock, Bitcoin is a virtual currency. It does not exist in physical form. Saying you had seen bitcoin in a bag would be like saying you had seen email in a bag -- it makes no sense.

Which is why Davi Barker, a Libertarian blogger who was returning from the New Hampshire Liberty Forum, was somewhat befuddled at the situation.

The Federal Reserve Board doesn't have the authority to regulate bitcoin, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said Thursday.

"To the best of my knowledge, there's no intersection at all in any way between bitcoin and banks the Federal Reserve has the ability to supervise or regulate," Yellen told members of the Senate Banking Committee. "The Federal Reserve simply does not have authority to supervise or regulate bitcoin in any way."

Satoshi Nakamoto, the alleged Bitcoin founder who was outed yesterday by Newsweek, did classified work for the U.S. military and major corporations, a fact that will sit uncomfortably with many Bitcoin proponents should it be confirmed that Nakamoto is indeed the father of the cryptocurrency.

Wayne Madsen - NSA contractor reveals Obama's Crimean Hypocrisy







The situation in the Ukraine has resulted in the worst diplomatic crisis in American/Russian relations since the Cold War. Russian troops marched into Crimea, on orders of Vladimir Putin. In an election recently held on the peninsula, nearly 97 percent of voters voiced their support in favor of joining Russia. The Obama Administration and Putin began instituting a series of sanctions against the other nation. Each side banned lawmakers and other officials from the other country from travel. Further restrictions were placed on business in their territories.

Wayne Madsen is a former NSA contractor, a well-known investigative journalist and author. He writes about international affairs and intelligence.

He has produced several recent works on the crisis in the Ukraine. One article is titled "Independence Referenda Only Count when Washington and its Allies Say They Count." It questions the guidelines American lawmakers use to determine whether or not they will support a vote in another nation. In another article, the journalist claims the pledge of economic support for Ukrainian rebels is a violation of U.S. law.

Madsen is our guest on the show today. We will talk about the crisis in the Ukraine, as well as the pledge for aid from the Obama Administration. We will discuss his two newest articles on the subject, as well as the possible future of the region.

UKRAINE PROTESTS: - RIOT POLICE & PROTESTERS Turn KIEV into a BATTLEFIELD







Kiev Protest: Police Lit on Fire
Five protesters have died during an anti-government uprising in Kyiv, Ukraine which has waged on for over four days now.

The commotion has seemingly intensified upon news of the deaths, with the European Union threatening to punish Ukraine leaders for violently confronting the protesters and the U.S. government "strongly condemning" police violence.

Police instead relied on smoke and tear gas, rubber bullets, stun grenades, molotov cocktails and also water cannons.
An order banning police use of water cannons in sub-zero temperatures was also lifted, and as reported below, at least three tanks are awaiting departure from Chernihiv just north of Kyiv.

The protests supposedly stem from Ukraine President Vicktor Yanukovych's decision to refuse a European Union trade deal in favor of stronger economic ties with Russia.

As reported Monday, the protests have largely been organized by USAID, the CIA's National Endowment for Democracy (NED), Freedom House (which has also been alleged to be a CIA connected organization), and George Soros' Open Society Institute.

The rally, the biggest this year in a cycle of pro-Europe protests convulsing the former Soviet republic for the past two months, was spurred by the legislation rushed through parliament last week and which the opposition says will lead to a police state.

Significantly raising the stakes in the confrontation with President Viktor Yanukovich, opposition leaders announced a plan to gather people's signatures expressing no confidence in his leadership and that of parliament. peace

"Water cannons are being used by police to prevent mass disorders and violations, to repulse attacks on buildings and means of transport, regardless of their affiliation, to protect civilians and for self-defense," reads the amended decree.

Police have also been permitted to use smoke, tear gas and stun grenades. Law-enforcement bodies have received permission to restrict the movement of vehicles as well as temporarily prevent citizens' access to particular areas in the city.

The crackdown was launched on mid-day and followed a smaller police action in the morning in Grushchevskovo Street, in which they dismantled a protester barricade and retreated back to initial positions. A similar hit-and-retreat was performed the previous day.
The police advances probably came as no surprise. Earlier on Tuesday Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolay Azarov warned that the authorities would use "force, as prescribed by the law," unless "the provocateurs stop."

According to latest casualty reports from the Interior Ministry, 195 officers have been injured during the entire period of scuffles, including 84, who had to be admitted to hospitals. There were no immediate accurate reports about the number of injured among the opposition.

The crackdown on the opposition comes after two deaths were confirmed among their ranks overnight. Both of the victims suffered fatal traumatic wounds, according to Kiev's chief doctor, Vitaly Mokhorev. Their bodies were brought to a volunteer medical post in Khrushchevskovo Street.

"Law enforcement do not carry firearms there," spokesman Sergey Burlakov said.
Rumors on the internet alleged that one of the victims was killed by a sniper, but there was no evidence provided to substantiate this assertion.

Financial War and Possible Russian Shooting War, Phony Accounting and Fed Stress Test, More Banker Fraud

Financial War, Russian Shooting War, Phony Fed Stress Test, Obama • ObamaCare deadline extended 



Reports are Russia has now amassed as many as 80,000 troops on the Eastern Ukraine border. Russia says they are conducting war games and training, but U.S. military sources openly worry about an invasion. I do not understand why President Obama is saying that Russia is only a "regional power" and is "threatening its neighbors out of weakness." So far, that has not been Russia's MO. They took Crimea with hardly a scuffle. The U.S. and the West has imposed some weak sanctions, and Russia is countering by increasingly moving away from the U.S. dollar in terms of trade.

The Federal Reserve conducted bank stress tests and five big banks failed, including Citigroup. They are doing this to make everyone think the banks are "safe." Here's the farce of it all. Banks have been allowed phony accounting since 2009. The banks are not as "safe" as the Fed claims.

Finally, five more people were convicted in the Bernie Madoff fraud that prosecutors estimate to be a total of $65 billion. The prosecutor said that the Madoff Ponzi scheme "could not have been the work of one person." He is correct, but it was much more than Madoff and his crew. JPMorgan reportedly paid big fines and restitution to avoid criminal prosecution.

Wayne Root -- We Are being Scammed by Obamacare

No one can collect "free" Obamacare services from any doctor without showing ID. And since everyone is now required to have health insurance (or is given free insurance), the government is requiring that everyone have a photo ID. Don't look now, but Obamacare just opened the door for voter ID.

World LEADERS Wearing ILLUMINATI PYRAMID & Egyption Symbolism at 2014 NUCLEAR SUMMIT





World LEADERS Wearing ILLUMINATI PYRAMID & Egyption Symbolism at 2014 NUCLEAR SUMMIT

World Leaders Wear Bizarre Illuminati Pyramid at Nuclear Summit The Alex Jones Channel Alex Jones Show podcast Prison Planet TV Infowars.com Twitter Alex Jones' Facebook Infowars store

Innocent motif or occult display of power?

World leaders at this week's Nuclear Security Summit wore bizarre illuminati pyramid lapel pins while gathered around a giant eye with a floating holographic pyramid suspended above.

Interestingly enough, President Barack Obama was one of the few world leaders not to wear the pyramid symbol.

Is the symbol an innocent motif designed to express unity around the issue of nuclear security, or does it represent an occult display of power?

During the Nuclear Security Summit, which was held on March 24th and 25th in the Netherlands, Reuters captured video of presidents and prime ministers from all over the world wearing a very peculiar pyramid-shaped pin. Those that have studied secret societies and the occult know that the unholy pyramid is a very dark symbol that represents some of the deepest secrets of the elite. When it shows up in a very public forum like an international summit meeting, it is usually not by accident. As I will discuss below, thanks to Freemasons we even find this highly occult symbol on the back of all one dollar bills. Of course the cover story is that all of these world leaders were wearing pyramids to support "nuclear security", kind of like if you want to support breast cancer you pin a little pink ribbon to your jacket. And you never know -- perhaps that is all that this was. But when I watched this video for the first time my jaw just about hit the floor. Nuclear terrorism is officially the main topic for world leaders at a two-day summit in the Netherlands starting Monday. In practice, the Ukraine crisis will likely overshadow those talks. The Nuclear Security Summit in the Hague will form the backdrop for an emergency meeting of Group of Seven leaders on Russia's annexation of Crimea. It's a confrontation between Russia and the West reminiscent of the Cold War.

When I first watched that video, it reminded me of a really bad apocalyptic movie.

And I find it interesting that at this same summit, Barack Obama, Chinese President Xi Jinping and most of the rest of the world leaders played a "nuclear war game"... World leaders including President Obama, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron and Chinese President Xi Jinping played a "nuclear war game" designed to test how they would respond to a global terrorist attack at a high-level meeting, the Telegraph reported Tuesday. The leaders also included German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who according to the Telegraph was unhappy and did not want to play the game. summit illuminati pyramid symbolism stage event egypt egyptian badge badges
The game took place at the nuclear summit at The Hague and included dozens of other heads of state. It required leaders to respond to the scenario of a terrorist attack with a "dirty bomb" in a big Western city. Leaders had to answer a series of questions on how they would respond to the attack as the game progressed and new challenges arose. Roosevelt, as he looked at the colored reproduction of the Seal, was first struck with the representation of the "All Seeing Eye," a Masonic representation of The Great Architect of the Universe. Next he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776, but that it would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt like myself was a 32nd degree Mason. He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill rather than a coin and took the matter up with the Secretary of the Treasury. He brought it up in a Cabinet meeting* and asked James Farley [Postmaster General and a Roman Catholic] if he thought the Catholics would have any objection to the "All Seeing Eye" which he as a Mason looked on as a Masonic symbol of Deity. Farley said "no, there would be no objection."

Most Americans carry these bills around with them every day, and yet they have no idea what this symbolism means...

Nigel Farage : "I'm sick to death of this country getting involved in foreign wars"

Nigel Farage responds to Cleggs attack on his comments about Ukraine by exposing the Lib Dems links to EU militarism.
EU expansionism. EU flamed Ukraine instability. Russia has protected Russians. EU is an engine for instability rather than the claimed stability.
I assume the play from the CIA is to let the security situation fall apart such that Putin rolls across the border to protect his Russian brothers and that gives the neocons theor golden shot at war with russia...




Nigel Paul Farage is a British politician and leader of the UK Independence Party since 2010, a position he also held from September 2006 to November 2009. Nigel Farage intensified his attack on the EU's "vanity" foreign policy on Thursday as he accused Brussels of poking the "Russian bear with a stick" over Ukraine and of deepening the Syrian civil war by giving false hope to forces hoping to topple the Assad regime. Amid widespread criticism of the Ukip leader's claim in his TV debate with Nick Clegg that the EU had "blood on its hands" after the violence in Kiev, Farage said the EU had destabilised a series of countries.
