Pam Martens & Russ Martens ~ Are U.S. Markets Liquid And Deep Or Rigged And Broken?

“In a market dominated by electronic trading, investors are having their pockets picked — and individual investors and mutual fund shareholders are among the likely victims. The securities exchanges’ practice of selling early access to their trading data to insiders — as the term ‘insiders’ suggests — is a practice that looks like illegal insider trading.” – Mercer Bullard

Every time a Wall Street honcho is hauled before Congress to explain the latest fleecing of the unsophisticated investor, he can be counted on to punctuate his testimony with this: “the U.S. markets are the deepest, widest, most liquid markets in the world.” Or words to that effect.

There are now two gripping questions before Congressional investigators, the FBI, the Justice Department and the New York State Attorney General’s office as they look at High Frequency Trading operations in U.S. markets:

Can markets give the appearance of liquidity while simultaneously being rigged?

How much “liquidity” is being created because the current market structure offers a slam-dunk opportunity for High Frequency Traders to loot the unsophisticated with impunity, thus drawing a steady flow of big money to the looting enterprise?

This, naturally, leads to two final questions: will market liquidity be negatively impacted, and by how much, if the incentive to steal without penalty is removed; has it come down to America having to accept a less liquid market or a market filled with thieves running a wealth transfer system in broad daylight?

After 90 Percent Decline, Federal Protection Sought For Monarch Butterfly

Please join CFS in urging the FWS to protect monarch butterflies!

MonarchButterflyMonarch butterflies are one of the most beautiful and iconic insects in the world, and they are in serious trouble. The monarch butterfly population in North America has been shrinking at an alarming rate. Why? A major culprit is the use of herbicides like Monsanto’s Roundup on genetically engineered (GE) crops, which is destroying a significant portion of their breeding habitat.

That’s why Center for Food Safety and Center for Biological Diversity have just co-filed a groundbreaking legal petition–joined by Xerces Society and renowned monarch scientist Prof. Lincoln Brower–to list the monarch butterfly as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).If listed, the U.S. government would be required to take urgent and significant action to protect monarchs from further declines.

Christina Sarich ~ Study: New Yorkers Face Cancer Spike From Monsanto’s Roundup In City Parks

“Experts are now concerned that this spraying may account for findings in a study just published in April by the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health that found RoundUp’s active ingredient, glyphosate, is associated with lymphoma. Dr. Philip Landrigan, a professor of pediatrics at Mount Sinai, called the study “very authoritative” and believes the city should halt its use of RoundUp.” C Sarich

Monsanto_PesticidesThe Parks Department in New York, which was responsible for spraying pesticides on green spaces more than 1,300 times last year, is likely leading to more prevalent cases of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and breast cancer, according to the findings of recent studies. The pesticide they use most often (even where children are at play) in order to eliminate weeds that house rats in New York is Monsanto’s Roundup – full of glyphosate carcinogens.

Even though the city posts warning signs 24-hours prior to spraying, the toxic chemicals in RoundUp linger, and no one really knows for how long. They say they spray in ‘little-used’ areas in the park – but we all know that with a little rain, pesticide runoff travels into the park’s lakes and soil, contaminating larger areas.

“In order to keep rats out of the playgrounds and meadow areas, we must use Roundup,” Parks Department spokesman Phil Abramson said. “It is not used inside playgrounds but is often used on little-used slopes outside playgrounds precisely because overgrown weeds near playgrounds harbor rats.”

The Hug Of The Century [Video]

A woman found a badly injured lion in the forest. She took it with her and nursed it back to health. When it was better, she made arrangements with a zoo to take the lion and give it a new and happy home. This video was taken when she returned to the zoo some time later to see how her lion was doing. Watch the lion’s amazing reaction when he sees her!

‘It’s funny that US is missing from Minsk – Washington is the real policymaker for Kiev’

It is funny that at the talks between the leaders of the Eurasian Customs Union and Ukraine the European troika will be in attendance, whereas the real policy for Kiev is being drawn up in Washington, foreign affairs analyst Srdja Trifkovic told RT.

“So far Washington has been playing a game of geopolitical encirclement of Russia which cannot be in the European interest, and which in the long-term can only result in the kind of civilizational catastrophe that we have seen exactly a hundred years ago in 1914”, Trifkovic added.

RT: Today’s is the first major meeting between the new Ukrainian president and Vladimir Putin. What’s the significance?

Srdja Trifkovic: I greatly fear there is less than meets the eye, because neither Poroshenko has a great deal of leeway in the proceedings, he has opted for a military solution in the east and he cannot backtrack on that one without losing credibility with his base particularly in the west of the country, nor does Vladimir Putin have any motivation to offer anything now that the negotiations are stalled and federalization and the protection of Russian language rights are a non-issue. So I think this will be an exercise in futility, it will be used for propaganda purposes by both sides but the elephant missing from the room is John Kerry and Victoria Nuland, because it is rather funny that there will be the European troika in attendance from Brussels whereas the real policy and agenda for Kiev is being drawn up in Washington DC.

Ben Fulford (August 26 2014) ~ Major Fall Offensive Against Nazionists Begins Despite Continuing Cabal Threats Of Mass Murder

“To try to keep Europe in their grip, the Nazionist cabal has adopted a strategy of using mercenary armies to seize European energy choke points in the Middle East and the Ukraine. Pentagon sources now confirm that the so-called Islamic State or ISIS is run by a Mossad agent by the name of Simon Elliot who is running the Middle Eastern side of this strategy. ” B Fulford

The summer is ending and the Satan-worshipping cabalists are trembling in fear of what will come their way this autumn, according to White Dragon Society, CIA and Chinese government and other sources. However, instead of anything dramatic happening, the cabal will be left to continue its slow motion implosion as new international structures continue to be put in place to by-pass their financial control systems, the sources say. The mathematics of finance and the real economy are working irrevocably against the cabal governments in the US and Israel so, time is on the side of the 188 nation BRICS alliance. Just like it is best to wait for a sick lion to die instead of trying to pick a fight with it, the cabal is inevitably sinking so there is no need to do anything rash.

Nonetheless, there might also be some more dramatic actions planned but obviously they will not be announced in advance. We can hint, however, that these planned moves involve gold, silver, and, for some, lead. Continue reading

Simon ~ The Bucegi Mountain Secrets & Evidence

“People of this age try to interpret the words of old differently to the real meaning. A trumpet and flying chariot, as examples, are not literal but an interpretation of objects using the only words they had for it back then. Back then there we no words for airplane, UFO, helicopter etc to explain a vehicle flying in the air so they could use the only word they knew at that time to explain what they were seeing; a flying chariot.” Simon

In the summer of 2003, in an unexplored area of the Bucegi mountains, an epochal discovery was found that would completely change the destiny of mankind.

I. A Summary of the discovery in 2003

  • There are 4 primary tunnels and further sub tunnels that lead to deep underground places which you would have heard of.
  • In these tunnels you will find rooms, huge rooms, with huge tables and stone chairs for people much, much taller than us.
  • The projection room contains all our history and can be replayed visually.
  • A table where you can perform holographic experiments with DNA, mix and match anything you wish and see what the results would be.
  • These rooms were created at least 50,000 years ago and each is connected to each other, protected by a energy source which actives all as one is activated.
  • The locations are; Near the Sphinx in Egypt, Baghdad, Mount Kailash in Tibet and the Bucegi Mountains in Romania. The inner tunnels lead to a secret World under the Gobi Plateau in Mongolia and, most importantly, to Antarctica.
  • This connects to WWII and the German Tibet expedition, Romania being fast-tracked into NATO, hollow earth, the eye above the pyramid and more.

Since the declassification of the new ground-penetrating radar 2 years ago, the most staggering data has emerged of complex and labyrinthine underground systems in various parts of the world. At places like Guatemala in the South Americas, tunnels have been mapped under the Mayan pyramid complex at Tikal, which extend a full 800 kilometers to the opposite side of the country. Investigators remarked, it was possible to understand how half a million Mayan Indians escaped the decimation of their culture.
