Ben Fulford (Apr 14 2014) ~ “Surrender Or Die,” That Is The Choice The US Cabal Government Now Faces

BenjaminFulford.net

The criminal cabal that hijacked the Republic of the United States of America and turned it into a global pariah have been cornered to a point where they must either surrender or die. This is becoming obvious on many levels. For example, last week even the member nations of the globalist International Monetary Fund lined up 187 to 1 against the United States in an effort to get them to relinquish their veto control of that institution.

Even more troubling for the families that control the Federal Reserve Board has been the massive ongoing attack on their petrodollar. In particular, the situation in the Ukraine is turning into a historical cabal defeat.

President Vladimir Putin of Russia has begun insisting that Europe and the Ukraine pay for their supplies of Russian gas with something other than US dollars. The Europeans have little choice but to agree to this, thus sealing the fate of the petrodollar.

US Corporate Government President Barack Obama, working under orders from puppet masters like George Soros, tried convincing the Middle Eastern oil producing countries to drive down the price of oil and bankrupt Russia but was rebuffed.

Obama then turned around and went to the Chinese where, according to Chinese government sources, he offered to hand over to China control over all of South East Asia and Japan if China agreed to use the People’s Liberation Army to put pressure on Russia. The Chinese, however, are fully aware that Obama represents the same regime that tried to kill most of China’s population with ethnically targeted bio-weapons a few years ago and thus will not make a deal with them against Russia.

The Chinese however, are insisting that the United Nations move its headquarters to Asia and reform its security council so that it more accurately represents the population of the planet earth. They are also coming to the conclusion that the cabal has no intention of handing over control of the World Bank or the IMF so they are preparing to set up a new institution that will have far more funds available to it than both the World Bank and the IMF combined.

Stephen Lendman ~ What Ukraine Propaganda Looks Like

SteveLendmansBlog April 13 2014

steveLendmanIt’s like US propaganda. Like other Western propaganda. Big Lies repeat. They proliferate. They follow one after another. Truth is systematically buried.

The Ukrainian News Agency (UNA) is Kiev-based. It’s part of the UA Inter Media Group Limited. It owns 61% of the Ukrainian TV channel Inter.

On April 13, it headlined “Foreign Ministry: There is Evidence of Russian Special Forces’ Involvement in Seizure of Government Facilities in Eastern Ukraine.”

Allegations are baseless. No evidence whatever proves them. John Kerry accused Russia of the same thing. Sergei Lavrov confronted him responsibly.

In diplomatic language, he said put up or shut up. Kerry’s accusations ring hollow. So does UNA rubbish. It lied.

Kiev’s illegitimate putschist Foreign Ministry substituted lies for truth. UNA quoted its statement saying:

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has all needed specific evidence of Russian special services’ involvement in the separatist mutiny and seizure of government facilities in eastern Ukraine.”

UNA responded saying:

“The Foreign Ministry informs, relevant testimony and proofs will be provided to the international community at the meeting on April 17 in Geneva, Switzerland.”

“The statement underlines, the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine has decided to hold an antiterrorist operation against the large-scale endeavour on the State, protecting people’s lives, Ukraine’s territorial integrity and security.”

“As Ukrainian News earlier reported, Latvian Foreign Affairs Minister Edgars Rinkevics makes Russia responsible for the escalation of separatism and violence in Ukraine.”

Paul Craig Roberts ~ Washington Is Humanity’s Worst Enemy

PaulCraigRoberts  April 13 2014

PaulCraigRobertsHow does Washington get away with the claim that the country it rules is a democracy and has freedom? This absurd claim ranks as one of the most unsubstantiated claims in history.

There is no democracy whatsoever. Voting is a mask for rule by a few powerful interest groups. In two 21st century rulings (Citizens United and McCutcheon), the US Supreme Court has ruled that the purchase of the US government by private interest groups is merely the exercise of free speech. These rulings allow powerful corporate and financial interests to use their money-power to elect a government that serves their interests at the expense of the general welfare.

The control private interests exercise over the government is so complete that private interests have immunity to prosecution for crimes. At his retirement party on March 27, Securities and Exchange Commission prosecutor James Kidney stated that his prosecutions of Goldman Sachs and other “banks too big to fail” were blocked by superiors who “were focused on getting high-paying jobs after their government service.” The SEC’s top brass, Kidney said, did not “believe in afflicting the comfortable and powerful.” In his report on Kidney’s retirement speech, Eric Zuesse points out that the Obama regime released false statistics in order to claim prosecutions that did not take place in order to convince a gullible public that Wall Street crooks were being punished. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/04/09/65578/

Democracy and freedom require an independent and aggressive media, an independent and aggressive judiciary, and an independent and aggressive Congress. The United States has none of the above.

Stephen Lendman ~ Meet Obama’s New HHS Chief Sylvia Mathews Burwell

Sylvia Mathews Burwell

Sylvia Mathews Burwell

She’s like the old Health and Human Services chief. She’s Sylvia Mathews Burwell. More on her below.

Kathleen Sebelius is out. She said she resigned. Maybe she was pushed. Obamacare claimed its latest victim. She served as chief architect. She presided over its disastrous rollout.

Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a giant scam. It rations care. It’s a ripoff. It’s a monstrosity.

It’s rife with unacceptable inequities. It does nothing to control costs. They’re spiraling out-of-control. They’re increasingly unaffordable for growing millions.

ACA makes a dysfunctional system worse. It’s double the cost of other developed nations.

It’s woefully inadequate. It leaves millions uninsured. It leaves millions more way underinsured. It makes US healthcare more than ever unaffordable.

If employers don’t provide it, consumers are out of luck. They’re forced to choose from among unacceptable options.

They require buying insurance or be penalized. In 2014, it’s $95 per person up to 1% of family income, whichever is greater.

Fines increase sevenfold over the next two years. In 2016, it’s $695 per person up to 2.5% of income. It’s whichever is greater.

It’s a boon to predatory providers. It should be. They wrote legislation mandating it. It assures they benefit at our expense.

Kit Daniels ~ Breaking: Sen. Harry Reid Behind BLM Land Grab of Bundy Ranch

Infowars  April 11 2014 (Thanks, Minty)

Corrupt Democratic Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) working with the Chinese gov’t to take land from hard-working Americans.

Corrupt Democratic Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) working with the Chinese gov’t to take land from hard-working Americans.

The Bureau of Land Management, whose director was Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former senior adviser, has purged documents from its web site stating that the agency wants Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s cattle off of the land his family has worked for over 140 years in order to make way for solar panel power stations.

Deleted from BLM.gov but reposted for posterity by the Free Republic, the BLM document entitled “Cattle Trespass Impacts” directly states that Bundy’s cattle “impacts” solar development, more specifically the construction of “utility-scale solar power generation facilities” on “public lands.”“Non-Governmental Organizations have expressed concern that the regional mitigation strategy for the Dry Lake Solar Energy Zone utilizes Gold Butte as the location for offsite mitigation for impacts from solar development, and that those restoration activities are not durable with the presence of trespass cattle,” the document states.

The first segment of the document pulled by the feds from BLM.gov.

This headline is only half right–“Putin turns up the heat in Ukraine.”  It should read, Obama and Putin turn up the heat.  I think this is the big story, and it is being underreported.  It has both financial and real war implications.

Let’s start with what Russia is doing.  It is now going to issue a new bond based in the yuan.  Are you getting that?  This is yet another move away from using the U.S. dollar to settle international trade.  Russia is also hiking the price of natural gas to Ukraine by at least 50% in May.  The Russians are going to want the cash for natural gas up front.  Russia is warning of the dire debt crisis in Ukraine and how this could threaten Russian natural gas deliveries to the EU.  I said it’s game on for financial war, and this is proof.
