The Silver Standard

Finally! News you can use for seniors!

By Joan Hunt

Without knowing it, I became an activist at the age of seven. A kid in my school whose name was Junior Johnson used to sit at the end of the slide and watch the girls slide down. In those days, we all wore dresses to school, so Junior was getting an eyeful of assorted pairs of underpants. Our playground was gravel, and on my way back up the ladder I grabbed the biggest stone I could see. On my next trip down, I landed it right in the middle of his forehead. It felt great! He chased me home, where the story came out, and Junior’s career as a voyeur ended abruptly.

I never burned my bra for women’s liberation, because frankly I needed it to have any semblance of a figure, but I have always stuck up for what I believed in. In the sixties, it was de rigueur. We protested the Vietnam War, civil injustice, corrupt government, and parents. We went to bat for the underdog—and, of course, we went overboard. We demanded students’ rights—and surprisingly, we got them.

There was plenty of fodder for the fuel at my college, which still gave demerits for answering the hall telephone in your bare feet. Boys were never allowed above stairs, and we had a particularly sour dorm mother who instituted the nightly lockdown at curfew with the grimness of a prison warden. A political science professor at my school was reprimanded, and then sacked, for showing a film that the administration believed to be “anti-American.” Students were up in arms. We lost that one.

How about a free, functional government?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Donald Trump was supposed to be the first president since JFK to be free of obligations to the high cabal usual funders and owners of American presidents. That’s how he was self-billed and that was his major selling point – that he had very largely funded his own campaign and, with a very successful businessman’s approach, would be more-knowledgeable and success-capable than his politician predecessors. So that he could get things Total Earth Science Skepticdone for and at the bidding of the people, rather than the multi-billionaire plutocrats who were accustomed to bribing and ruling.

And, perhaps strangely, if you google it, you can find purported background information both ways – that he paid for most of his rather sketchy campaign himself, or alternatively, that his elevation was heavily-financed by mega-rich interests primarily on Wall Street.

But, regardless, he is now, as a sudden recruit to the bomb-bomb, waw-waw persuasion, coming over from the presumed militarism-minimization philosophy of regime-change wars being too costly and unavailing. The neocons have got him now, apparently, however they did it, and here we go again – except more than ever.

One current theory, voiced in an online article apparently without an author a couple of days ago, entitled “Is Trump Really In Control?”, conjectures that the other members of the administration, mostly ex-generals, because they, not so much the president, have been mouthing threats in every direction lately, must, thus, be in control. While the president enjoys his golf and holds endless meetings and pep rallies – leaving war “to the generals”, mostly faceless. Whoever they are, all too casually assumed to be human or approximately so. More

Dispatches From the Bankers to the World

_________________________________________________________

By initiating  the economic turmoil that’s unfolding, London’s financial Wizards of  Oz open the  gate and stake out  two roads through the inevitable chaos when it occurs (1) to a new world paper currency which they will control and (2) to a “new world government” with themselves in charge of earth’s food, fiber, water, land, money, minerals, industry, information, people, jobs, hope, militaries, and government; having foreclosed on what resources they didn’t already own.”

PART  2

The bankers have  begun to put up billboards for the world in places like the Middle East that say: “When we want you into our global financial boat, it’s better to get in than to try to rock it, or row your own.”

What does all this have to do with Cyprus?

It’s another billboard for the world saying:  “We control your money and can come get it anytime we want.”  The unspoken being if a European central bank (in this case the European Central Bank) and its confederates can say they’re going to steal 25 percent from a citizen’s bank and/or savings account if  theyhijacked have more than $100,000 in them , than central banks everywhere can steal whatever they want from citizen bank accounts, whenever they want, with no fear of prosecution.

Cyprus is no mistake or miscalculation. It’s a message to the rest of the world.

Cyprus Was Not Caused By Citizens

Citizens did not cause the Cypriot or any of the world’s current banking crises.  Ever. Corrupt government officials, central bankers, and Wall Street money shufflers did. This is why Iceland citizens told these same bankers and their London enablers to take their debt and all of its illegal interest and shove it. Then they set about restoring financial stability in their nation through citizen-controlled financial institutions.  America’s Constitution specifies that congress is the only agency authorized to print and coin the nation’s money. Financial stability isn’t rocket science. It’s responsible people with the political will to take charge and do it.

The talking heads you watch nightly on television explaining Washington and world economic happenings are controlled by the same money that controls congress, the world’s governments, and our currency.

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades said the ‘tax’ on proposed citizen deposits was “. . .an alternative to a disorderly bankruptcy . . . that it’s painful but [this] will eventually stabilize the economy and lead it to recovery.”

This was a lie, and the Cypriot politicians who wallowed in easy loan money from the ECB loan sharks know it.

Did Cypriot bankers get threatening phone calls after announcing the confiscation?  Does the sun come up? Some from Russians who bank off-the-record billions there for sure and  probably an equal number from enraged citizens. Had the situation occurred in this country, banks and bankers would have been inundated with identical calls;  from Latin American drug cartels and Bubbas sitting outside in their pickups.

People of all stripes hate it when thieves  steal their money. More
