Break Free From Microsoft And Google

Dell_XPS_Laptop_FrontIt’s funny really, when you consider how many of us “so called” awake people happily sit here using the internet, totally reliant on Microsoft and Google to control our surfing. And when I say control, I really mean control. We have no idea how much information we are giving these massive globalist corporations each time we start up our laptops, PC’s and smart phones.

Like most people, we are not a single computer household. I have two laptops that I use regularly. The big one that sits on the arm of the sofa to allow me to keep up to date with things, while still being part of the family. This runs on Windows 7, which I still prefer to the awful Windows 8. I use another smaller Acer Travelmate which is far more portable and is usually used at the dinning room table running Windows Vista. My wife, when she can’t get on the “big one” uses a small Acer One net book also on Vista, plus there is this old tower system in the office, which until this week, was really an emergency back up machine running on Windows XP.  Because, as a sort of hobby, I build and repair computers, there are a number of older laptops in the garage which could be used if needed.

Anyway, while laid up with this bug that’s been doing the rounds for the last few months (it was a heavy cold, not Flu, and no, even though work tried their hardest to get me to have the free poison jab, I have survived without it for yet another year), I started thinking about using alternatives to the globalist controlled operating systems browsers and search engines.

Apple is a very good alternative. My daughter, who is both a musician and photographer, uses a 27″ iMac, but that’s in her room, and certainly out of bounds to the likes of me. Plus it’s not exactly “Globalist free” computing, but she needs Photoshop and Logic Pro, so that’s her choice.

So where else do we go? The answer is of course Linux. Always seen as a fringe system, can it really replace the Windows? Well the answer is a big fat yes. I’m sitting here in the office, using a real keyboard, using and old tower with a freshly installed version of Ubuntu 14.10 and it’s brilliant. Blistering fast compared to Windows, and completely Gates free. It is very easy to personalise, comes with the wonderful Firefox browser. There is a non Google version of of Chrome if you really insist, and as for Internet Explorer, who still uses that anyway?

Ubuntu is one of dozens of systems based on the Linux framework. Mint is another good one, or Lubuntu if you really want the old XP experience.

As for a good search engine, again, here there is a lot of choice, but I’ve opted for Duck Duck Go.

OK, this is all very well, but what about software. Microsoft Office is still the market leader, but that, thank goodness isn’t available for Linux. The good news is that Open Office or the slightly better Libre Office is, and to be honest, I’ve been using them for years.  In fact, there are thousands of really good open source software titles out there, all produced by people who put quality before profit.

So far, this old tower is now windows free, the netbook has also been converted. I’m changing over the Travelmate as soon as possible. As for the main laptop, I will keep Windows 7, only because I use Photoshop a lot and understand the program, but will install Ubuntu to run as a twin system. Gimp is a fantastic Photoshop alternative, but because it doesn’t use “actions”, and to be honest, Photoshop cost me a lot of money, I’m not yet ready to say goodbye altogether, but for general use,  blogging and keeping Alternative-News-Network on line, I will be using it in Ubuntu mode.

So there we have it, I feel cleansed and free from Gates and Google. And before anyone says “you have Adsense on ANN”, yes we do, it’s a means to an end and helps keep the site online. If you have a better suggestion to help pay for the hosting and bandwidth ANN uses, please let me know because I would love to get rid of it.

 

Google AdSense to News Site: Change Your Content, or Else.

google-adsense-to-news-site-change-your-content-or-else-v3-620x335Interesting piece on ZDNet about Google.

Summary: Google’s AdSense has told San Francisco news outlet The SF Appeal that it has three days to remove editorial content that violates its advertising policy. UPDATED.

Google’s AdSense has told San Francisco news outlet The SF Appeal that it has three days to remove editorial content that violates its advertising policy.

SF Appeal Publisher Eve Batey said, “Your advertisers shouldn’t be telling you what to cover in your publication.” She added, “that Google seems to think that it’s OK to send a vague email like this is pretty staggering, and seems to suggest that the company is not the friend to journalism they claim they are.”

Update: Google’s spokesperson responded to this article saying that despite Ms. Batey’s email from AdWords telling her otherwise (included in this article), Ms. Batey and ZDNet are incorrect to believe that AdWords is requiring content to be changed.

Google’s spokesperson clarified that this news website must follow the Google AdWords adult content policy.

Google said this morning via email, “We don’t comment on specific publishers, but below is a general statement. Also here is more on our adult content policies. Your headline is inaccurate — we don’t require publishers to change their content. They cannot run ads against content that is not in line with the policies (so they could take the ads off those pages and still run them elsewhere on the site).”

Ms. Batey responded, “Given the email sent to us by Google, then, Google’s remark that “they could take the ads off those pages and still run them elsewhere on the site” isn’t accurate.”

“That said, this response does a terrible job of even pretending to address the question posed, nor the issues raised in your report.” read more:

Does LBC Censor Any Mention Of David Icke?

You’ve got to love James O’Brien on LBC, that’s Leading Britains Biased Conversation.

Now, I’ve got to admit that I enjoy listening to James. His command of the English language is is superb, taking no prisoners when callers annoy him, although unusually flexible to having his opinion changed if a good argument is offered. Coming from a journalistic background, James followed his wonderful father into the once noble profession. Mystery hour on a Thursday between 12.00 and 13.00 is also compulsive listening.

David-Icke & James O'BrienJames works for LBC which is owned by Global Radio, part of the Heart, Capital FM, Classic FM, XFM, Gold and Smooth Radio group. Global, under the Heart brand, have taken over much of the old Independent Radio network. Good small local commercial stations becoming homogenised into a massive impersonal mind numbing network.

James does however show his true colours when the “conspiracy theory” alarm goes off as a caller on Mondays show found out. The discussion was centered around the Child Abuse inquiries after the resignation of Fiona Wolfe. This caller wanted to put forward the view that child abuse in high political life was nothing new, and dared to say that David Icke wrote about it years ago. At the mention of Ickes name, O’Brien terminated the call immediately . Now to be fair to O’Brien, the end of the call did sound a little odd, so the seven second delay button may have removed something that could not legally be broadcast, but to me it sounded like he was just cut off.

This makes me wonder, was it his choice to refuse to discuss someone, who’s views have been shown to be correct time after time, or does the aptly named Global Radio have a special panic button. After all, James iain-dale-fight-3-460x288Whale who was never frightened to include Icke when he worked for Talk Sport, was allegedly shafted by Global when he worked for LBC, replacing him with Iain “Kick Up” Dale. Good choice Global, good choice.

Millions of Ebola vaccine doses by end of 2015.

ebola vaccineNice to see on the BBC today some good news about Ebola. ” see here

“Millions of doses of experimental Ebola vaccines will be produced by the end of 2015, the World Health Organization has announced.

It said “several hundred thousand” would be produced in the first half of the year.

And vaccines could be offered to health workers on the frontline in West Africa as soon as December 2014.

However, the WHO cautioned that vaccines would not be a “magic bullet” for ending the outbreak.

There is no proven cure or vaccine for Ebola.

In response to the largest epidemic of the disease in history, the WHO is accelerating the process of vaccine development

It normally takes years to produce and test a vaccine, but drug manufacturers are now working on a scale of weeks.”

Well, that’s OK then, just remind me who is behind the World Health Organisation? Could it be the same people that run big pharma! KA-CHING.

 

 

Blair Warns Britain Needs To Take Action In Iraq And Syria – Or Face Terror Attacks.

Blair on SKYJust when I was having a really enjoyable Sunday tending to my veg in the garden, I decided to take a 10 minute sit down for a cup of tea and a quick scan of the latest MSM tosh. OMG, I wasn’t disappointed.

I remember reading some time ago, that people like Blair are such narcissistic characters, so detached from the real world that they really have no understanding of even care about how transparent their agenda is.

Anthony  Charles Lynton Blair this morning said Britain needed to take action in Iraq and Syria – or face terror attacks at home. Nice one Tony, how is the Middle Eastern Peace Envoy job going?

How on earth does a discredited man creature like Blair have the gall to dare give his opinion on anything these days is beyond me, and should be beyond any sane thinking person.  The only thing he has ever been ever fairly good at is  being  a smarmy yes man to the globalist masters pulling the strings, oh and making a vast fortune since leaving Downing Street, prostituting himself to anyone willing to pay hard cash to hear him talk, part time jobs with JPMorgan Chase(I wonder who they are connected to?) and scurrying around the Middle East jumping from conflict to conflict. 

At school  he was a complete pain in the backside and they were very glad to see the back of him source. He tired his hand at being a rock music promoter, and failed. He played in a rock band called (you’re going to love this) Ugly Rumours. He went to Oxford and got a 2nd, then moved in with Derry Irvine Chambers, where he met Elsie Tanners step daughter. He wasn’t great at the legal profession, completely out shone by Ms Booth. In the Nethermere (St Neots) Ltd v Gardiner case, he was representing the employers who where fighting to deny female workers holiday pay; he lost. However, Derry Irvine later became Blair’s first Lord Chancellor, so it wasn’t a complete waste of time. Talk about jobs for the boys.

It is alleged that during this period, in 1983 to be exact, a Charles Lynton was was fined £50 for attempted soliciting in city toilets, the police notes were to disappear later along with several prior verbal warnings. I mention this because for the system to function, the powers need very naughty stuff to blackmail their puppets, and it seems Blair has quite a few skeletons in his closet.

So here we have it, Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, saying on SKY News, yes, even that made me laugh, oh the irony of it, SKY News of all places. SKY News for any none UK readers is the UK equivalent of FOX News, and controlled by Rupert Murdoch. Rupert Murdoch is the former husband of Wendi Deng, who it has been alleged, mainly by the Daily Mail was a little to close to Anthony Charles Lynton Blair source.

Murdoch and Wendi

I don’t really buy this story, (although I have enjoyed writing about it previously), it has a whiff of the Cliffords about it. How better to confuse questions about Blair’s sexual preferences than by creating a story about him over the side with Wendi. It’s a real shame her and Lord Murdemort have split up, they always looked so well suited to each other. (Tale as old as time)

Anyway, dragging myself back to the point at hand, SKY News, the free voice of the globalists, gave Blair a platform, and did the BBC,  to warm about ISIS, and how if we don’t get involved, the terrorist threat will be even greater than it currently is after he and boy Bush sent other peoples children into Iraq and Afghanistan on the back of a lie to justify Blair’s sycophantic grovelling deal made to Dubber previously.

So Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, even for the less awakened members of the British Public, you are a totally discredit has been, who will one day have to answer for your betrayal of the honest men and women in the street, who put their trust in you, and were let down in the most dishonorable manner when you sold your soul to the devil.

For everyone’s sake, please keep your opinions to yourself, we don’t trust you, we don’t like you, and most of all, we don’t want you to hear from you.

Love is a many splendid thing. Bit of a funny old handshake?

Love is a many splendid thing.



 

North Korea, MSM Lies Exposed As Hyon Song-Wol Reportedly Appears On TV

Hyon-Song-WolNorth Korea, MSM Lies Exposed As Hyon Song-Wol Reportedly Appears On TV. It’s a miracle, Hyon Song-Wol the executed former girlfriend of Kim Jong-Un has made an appearance on TV delivering a speech at a national art workers rally in Pyongyang, so reports the Mail this morning see here, after reporting her execution on 29 August last year. see here

Fascinating stuff, and a great example of how these controlled media outlets demonise whoever their current target is. Just a few months later, the Mail reported that his Uncle was stripped naked and fed to a pack of dogs. see here.

Incidentally, in the report today, they can’t even get the country Kim Jung-Un is leader of correct,here’s a screen shot taken at 05.35 this morning.

North Kor

No dear Daily Mail editors, Kim Jung-Un is the leader of North Korea, not South Korea, for gods sake, try to get the basics correct. If you’re going to make stuff up, at least make it believable.

The point here is that we know nothing about North Korea, most people don’t even know where North Korea is, so when the media report these “boggie man ” stories, most of us accept it as fact. Here’s another example of the media campaign against Kim Jung-Un. see here. I’m no apologist for North Korea, but will not base my judgement of that country on the propaganda spread by the West, look where that got us with Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Vietnam, Syria, oh, and so on.

Mail Pushing The “Global Warming” Hoax, Again. Give Me Strength, And A Snorkel.

Oh Ellie, Ellie, Ellie, I expected better from you. As science and technology journalist for the Mail you’ve really pulled out all of the globalist stops today! To be totally honest Ellie, after reading your piece titled Would YOU be underwater if the polar caps melted? Map reveals what our planet would look like if sea levels rose by 260ft” I had to check the date, no, it wasn’t April 1st.

What really hacks me off about these scare mongering pieces is that they are designed to spread fear in order to justify the global warming con trick forcing crippling carbon taxes on all of us.

I’m not going to do a line by line breakdown of the whole article like Spivey does for two reasons, I don’t have the time, or the intellect, however, a few things do need pointing out.

I worked on this map for about, gathering the data and rendering all the labels,’ said Mr Vargic, speaking to MailOnline. ‘It was entirely digitally hand-drawn, based on gathered topography data from Nasa.” (1)Exactly how long is about? (2)This post is entirely digitally hand typed. (3) We all trust everything NASA tell us.

‘I was always interested in the future climate change and human influence on the global warming. I created these maps both to raise awareness about the global warming and also because nobody has yet done this on such a scale” I can see that, I’m interested in future climate change, that’s why I watch the weather forecast.  Human influence on global warming, nice one, say it often enough and they all believe it. Oh, and nobody has done this on such a scale because nobody else wanted to waste their time on this nonsense.

Don’t get me wrong, the map is great, in fact the best piece of digitally hand drawn work I’ve seen in ages, based a a big fat global lie.

“According to recent studies, there is enough ice in Earth’s polar caps to cause about 250-300ft (80–100m) rise of the sea level,’ he said on his website.” This one’s got me a bit confused. Firstly, and I may be wrong here because I was educated by the same system that is trying to destroy us, the ice at the north pole is floating. So it must be floating on water, with me so far. OK, now when Archimedes’ went all wrinkly sitting in his bath working out his principle  that when upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces, he sort of hit upon something. Therefore the amount of ice at the north pole has already displaced it’s own weight in water, so if it melts, which it isn’t going too, there is no change. Try it yourself, get a glass of water and pop a couple of ice cubes in, thus simulating the north pole. Mark the level of water on the glass. Come back when the ice cubes have melted, Eureka no change. Please note, this isn’t technically 100% correct but near enough to make the point.

On 8 September 2013, the Mail wrote a lovely little piece on Global Cooling, and how the Arctic ice is increasing, read here

MoS2 Template Master

Anyway, not to be out done, we have created a digitally hand drawn map to show what will happen if the water rises by 8848.1 meters.

gore map

And finally, I’m fairly sure that Co2 increases because of the planet warming due to normal climate variations, mainly influenced by the sun, not the other way round. They can’t yet tax the air we breathe in,  so they tax the Co2 we breathe out. I’m off to watch some cows farting.

Nick Clegg, Liar Or Not Fit For Purpose. Said He Knew Nothing About Paedophile Cyril Smith.

I know I covered this yesterday, but that was very much a copy and paste, with a bit of Photoshop chucked in for good measure. The more my tiny blog head thinks about this story the more I believe Cleggs stance has cornered him into an impossible position. If he did know about Cyril Smith pre Simon Danczuk’s revelations, he is simply a liar. If, as he claims, he didn’t know about the Smith paedo allegations, he is so out of touch with the real world and indeed the liberal half of his own party, what the hell is he doing in the job in the first place. Let’s not forget, Clegg started his political life working for Leon Brittan on the EU gravy train, so it’s not as if he hasn’t been around a bit.
Talking of Leon Brittan, isn’t it rather odd that when you Google Cyril Smith, you get the following suggestions.
google cyril smith

OK, I can understand why Simon Danczuk is there, Jeremy Thorpe, well we all remember the “beam up Scottie” jokes, David Steel, knew Uncle Cyril liked a bit of bare bottom boy spanking, Sidney Cooke, that’s easy, prolific paedophile, but I just can’t put my finger on why Nick Cleggs old boss Leon Brittan is there? When Bill Maloney challenged Nick Clegg about Leon Brittan on budget day, Nick couldn’t remember much about that either.

Anyway, back to Clegg, the Cyril Smith story has been around the MSM since his death. Clegg said that he had never heard of any rumours around Sir Cyril’s behaviour despite the allegations being reported in Private Eye in 1979. All very strange.

The other thing that I found odd today, the Mail did a nice bit about Squirming Cleggie, publishing the following image.

liberals

The byline mentions Smith, Thorpe,& Steel, but totally ignores former leader Jo Grimond, very sloppy if you ask me. Read more

Nick Clegg Knew Nothing About Paedophile Cyril Smith.

ManuelClegg1aIn true Manuel style, Nick Clegg insisted that he “knew nothing” about the paedophile Cyril Smith.

Speaking to Nick Ferrari At Breakfast, the Liberal Democrat leader says he was unaware of abuse claims against the former MP until they were revealed to the Commons in 2012.

Simon Danczuk, current MP in Rochdale where Sir Cyril served, has written an explosive book detailing allegations against the former Liberal MP. Newspaper front pages this morning insisted Mr Clegg must have known about the claims.

But the Deputy Prime Minister told LBC: “The suggestion that I had known any of this, I would have carried on regardless is absurd.

“These are montrous things that appear to have happened and they need to be looked into by the police.”

Mr Clegg said that as soon as Simon Danczuk made the claims in the House of Commons the Party began investigating.

“The Whips’ office in my Party went and spoke to every single current member of the House of Lords and current member of the House of Commons who was around at the time of Cyril Smith and said ‘did you know anything?’ No-one said they did,” Mr Clegg said.

“We even scoured what little documentation there is from that time but remember, as I keep saying, the Party was formed in 1989. Many, many if not most of these events are alleged to have taken place before the Party was formed. There is simply no documentation.”

The Deputy Prime Minister – and father of two young boys – also emphasised that he was only 12 years old at the time the incidents are alleged to have taken place and was outraged at suggestions he could have been aware of them before they became public.

“Do you really think I would have praised Cyril Smith when he died if I even had an inkling of the monstrous things he is alleged to have been doing? It is absurd to suggest that I would have done otherwise.

“I know that people say ‘you must know something’ I can only tell you what I did and didn’t know, I’m not going to start inventing that I knew things that I didn’t know.

“A lot of these things took place many, many, many years ago, many of them actually stretching way back to before I was around, before my Party was around.

“I now read and I heard in late 2012 what Simon Danczuk has said, they’re very serious. It is repulsive, it is repugnant the actions of this man, they need to be looked at, they are of a criminal nature and they need to be looked at by the police.”

However speaking on LBC following this week’s Call Clegg Mr Danczuk was sceptical of the Deputy Prime Minister’s assertions.

“I think it is inconceivable that the leader of the Liberal Democrats would not have heard these rumours. You’ve got to bear in mind, I’ve been researching this issue, we had a Liberal leader of the council in Rochdale back in the ’60s knowing about these allegations.”

Tamiflu: drugs given for swine flu ‘were waste of £500m’. There’s a surprise.

tamiflu-_2877735bInteresting headline in the Telegraph today. I like the Telegraph who, just in case you had forgotten, led on the Maria Miller story. The article starts ” Drug Tamiflu does nothing to halt the spread of influenza and Government wasted nearly £500 million stockpiling it over swine flu pandemic, study finds”. Anyone who has followed the Swine Flu hoax for any time will already know this, but it’s great to see the MSM highlighting what an absurd waste of money the stock piling was.

It’s not as if the information about Tamiflu wasn’t already available. Here’s what Mike Adams of Natural News wrote in 2006.

“According to a list compiled by Dr. Patricia Doyle at rense.com, a host of strange ingredients are used to make up Hoffman-La Roche’s anti-flu drug Tamiflu, which has recently been connected with bizarre behavior, mostly in children.

Patients using Tamiflu — which many nations are stocking up on as a way to combat a possible pandemic of the deadly H5N1 bird flu — reported delirium, hallucinations, delusions, convulsions, disturbed consciousness and abnormal behavior. The FDA reports that side effects reported with Tamiflu include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bronchitis, stomach pain, dizziness and headache.

Three people on the drug have committed suicide by leaping to their deaths, and one Japanese child reportedly ran out of his house and responded to his name in growls after treatment.

According to Doyle and internet drug index RxList.com, the 75-milligram Tamiflu capsules contain:

Oseltamivir phosphate – The active ingredient in Tamiflu
Black iron oxide (E172) 
Croscarmellose Sodium 
FD&C Blue 2 (indigo carmine, E132) – A synthetic dye
Gelatin – A protein product traditionally made with animal byproducts
Povidone 
Pregelatinised maize starch Red iron oxide (E172) Shellac – A “natural plastic” secreted from the female lac insect. Sodium Stearyl Fumarate Talc – Preliminary links between talc and pulmonary issues, lung cancer, skin cancer and ovarian cancer have been established in studies 
Titanium dioxide (E171) Yellow iron oxide (E172)

The 12-milligram oral suspension of Tamiflu contains:

Oseltamivir 
Saccharin sodium (E954) – A chemical sweetener linked to cancer in some studies
Sodium benzoate (E211) – When combined with absorbic acid (vitamin C), sodium benzoate can form benzene, a known carcinogen
Sodium dihydrogen citrate (E331 (a)) 
Sorbitol (E420) – A sugar substitute that can cause gastrointestinal problems
Titanium dioxide (E171) 
Tutti Frutti flavor 
Maltodextrins (maize) 
Propylene glycol – Although generally recognized as safe (GRAS) by the FDA, propylene glycol is used as a food-grade antifreeze and is the primary ingredient of the paint inside a paintball
Arabic gum (E414) 
Natural identical flavoring substances (mainly banana, pineapple and peach) 
Xantham gum (E415) 

Doyle warns that the reactions possibly linked to the drug warrant caution and she suggests that anyone who has reacted to Tamiflu in the past discontinue use and consult a medical professional. She adds that the medicines chlorpropamide, methotrexate and phenylbutazone may adversely react with Tamiflu.

“This list of ingredients is downright amazing,” said Mike Adams, author of “How to Beat the Bird Flu.” “It contains an antifreeze used to winterize RVs, a chemical sweetener known to promote cancer, and a chemical preservative also known to promote cancer. Is it any wonder this drug, with all its chemical interactions, causes some people to go crazy and leap from tall buildings?

“This is yet one more reason why the public needs to be informed about safe, natural anti-viral herbs and bird flu remedies,” he said. “The active ingredient in Tamiflu is derived from a Chinese medicine herb, for example, yet no public official is telling people the name of that herb. They want Americans to buy the high-profit medicines, not stock up on natural herbs.”

But, still the government went ahead and stock piled £500m of the stuff for a drug that gave no more benefit than paracetamol, but with significantly higher risks. So there you have it, a fake flu epidemic to give £500m of our money to the big pharma, brilliant.

Here’s the article in the Telegraph.

World Hero’s Iceland Arrest Corrupt Rothschild Bankers

federalreservestockholdersBit behind with this story, but where Iceland lead, the rest should follow. World governments won’t do it, so it’s up to the people to force them. Just read this, re-blogged from The Daily Paul.

“The truth of the matter is… No one, except the Icelanders, have to been the only culture on the planet to carry out this successfully. Not only have they been successful, at overthrowing the corrupt Gov’t, they’ve drafted a Constitution, that will stop this from happening ever again.

“That’s not the best part… The best part, is that they have arrested ALL Rothschild/Rockefeller banking puppets, responsible for the Country’s economic Chaos and meltdown. Last week 9 people were arrested in London and Reykjavik for their possible responsibility for Iceland’s financial collapse in 2008, a deep crisis which developed into an unprecedented public reaction that is changing the country’s direction…”

“…Pressure from Icelandic citizens’ has managed not only to bring down a government, but also begin the drafting of a new constitution (in process) and is seeking to put in jail those bankers responsible for the financial crisis in the country.”

“Sigurdur Einarsson, former chairman of the defunct Icelandic bank Kaupthing, was arrested in London at 5:30 this morning along with the bank’s biggest customer, Robert Tchenguiz, and five others in a joint operation by the UK Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and the Office of the Special Prosecutor in Iceland.”

Even The Mail Is Warning Us About Goldman Sachs.

MailHow refreshing to read something in the Mail that makes you think they actually employ real journalists. The problem is of course that so much of their editorial is highly spun propaganda, that an article like this gets over looked, or even deleted.

Much of the alternative media, including us, have been warning about the financial take over of the world by Goldman Sachs for sometime, but it has largely been ignored by the globalist controlled MSM. You can read our previous posts here:

Just remember the famous quote by Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws!”

I found it quite funny today hearing the news that the National Audit Office are now saying that the Government (Vince Cabal Cable) under sold Royal Mail so much that British taxpayers lost hundreds of millions of pounds.  In setting the price for the sell off, Vince Cabal Cable sort advice from the investment bank Lazard, who received £1.5 million for its advice. Also with their snouts in the sell off trough were UBS, Goldman Sachs, Barclays and Merrill Lynch, with total the total fees coming to about £12.7 million.

Anyway, back to the Mails article. We are re-publishing it here, just in case it vanishes into the black hole of truth censorship.

How the vampire squid is controlling our lives: They helped cause the crash. Then profited from it. Now, from the Bank of England to the Fed, ex-Goldman Sachs chiefs are pulling the levers of power.

By ALEX BRUMMER

Amid the recent management shake-up at the top  of the Bank of England, as  it was dragged into the investigation of the alleged fixing of the £3 trillion-a-day foreign-exchange markets, one crucial appointment went almost unnoticed.

While public attention was understandably focused on an Egyptian-born mother of twins becoming only the second female deputy governor of the bank, the far more influential appointment was that of economist Ben Broadbent.

As the new deputy governor for monetary policy, he is now the predominant voice on the future direction of interest rates.

Ben Broadbent, the Bank of England's new deputy governor for monetary policy

 

His work will have a huge effect on the lives of the British people, for he will have a key role in deciding when the record five years of super-low mortgage rates will end — a decision that will inevitably lead to home-owners facing considerably bigger monthly bills.

But there is one crucial fact that should concern us about the Cambridge and Harvard-educated Broadbent: he spent a decade during the boom-and-bust years as the senior economist at the global headquarters of the investment bank Goldman Sachs.

He joins an elite few who hold senior positions in the world’s most powerful central banks — from London to New York, Frankfurt and beyond — and all of whom come from this one company, which was controversially described by Rolling Stone magazine as ‘a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money’.

The fact that so many alumni of the world’s most profitable — as well as most ruthless and cunning — investment bank wield such a level of influence in these central banks is nothing short of remarkable.

Because Goldman Sachs is an institution that, as I will explain, not only helped cause the financial crisis in 2008, but also profited from it — hugely enriching its own staff while leaving a trail of chaos for taxpayers to clear up.

Do we really want one of the most controversial financial institutions on the planet, which was eventually fined a record £343 million for shamelessly misleading investors during the crisis, to have so many of its ex-staff holding the levers of power in the City of London?

What makes the choice of Broadbent an issue of major public concern is that his period at Goldman saw the New York investment firm deeply embroiled in some of the most shocking financial scandals of  recent years.

First, there was the crisis triggered by the sub-prime mortgage disaster, when vast quantities of loans were made by U.S. banks to homeowners who could never pay them back.

This reached disaster point in 2007-8, once the loans had been sold on by banks and institutions around the world — by which time they had been packaged up as financial instruments or ‘derivatives’ so complicated that no one could tell how toxic they were.

Goldman Sachs played a key part in inventing these poisonous derivatives, which were a major factor in triggering the financial crisis.

But even more morally offensive was that once people finally began to realise how dangerous these derivatives were, Goldman Sachs started making money by speculating in the market that they would collapse in value.

So not only did the bank help create the crisis, it also profited from it.

It was the same Goldman Sachs that, during the financial crisis in 2008, when, like all financial institutions, its shares were falling, accepted a $10 billion bailout from the U.S. government.

Handily, many of its former staff — such as Hank Paulson, who was then U.S. Treasury Secretary — happened to be in key posts in the government when the decision was made.

Then there is the fact that Goldman Sachs reportedly arranged with the Right-wing Greek government to present the national accounts in the best possible light so that Greece could join the Eurozone in 2001. The bank was subsequently involved in elaborate schemes that masked the true horror of the country’s public debt crisis, which saw Greece having to be bailed out by the EU and left in economic ruins.

Despite this, Goldman bosses were able to pick up $111 million in bonuses soon afterwards, which were understandably branded an outrage as they were awarded during the worst recession for 80 years — one that had mainly been caused by irresponsible bank behaviour.

Influence in high places, though, did not stop Goldman from being heavily fined by the Wall Street regulator, the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), in 2010 for selling dodgy complex securities, based on sub-prime mortgages, to clients including the hapless Royal Bank of Scotland.

What makes the behaviour of Goldman Sachs so shameless is the arrogance with which it has sought to protect its reputation and the claims its bosses like to make for  its integrity.

The group’s chairman and chief executive, the smiling and fast-talking former trader Lloyd Blankfein, stunned everyone last year when he offensively boasted — amid Goldman’s return to fat profits — that the bank was doing ‘God’s work’.

Perhaps it is this arrogance that enables former Goldman executives, such as Ben Broadbent at the Bank of England, to rise ineffably to the very top jobs in international finance.

With the approval of Chancellor George Osborne, 49-year-old Broadbent was plucked from his relatively obscure role as an external member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee and promoted over the head of the Old Lady’s best and brightest internal prospects.

His elevation to the top economic role at Britain’s central bank means he will now be making the crucial interest rate, inflation and growth forecasts for the Bank’s quarterly Inflation Report — on which key decisions are made that affect millions of people.

Broadbent’s promotion must have seemed the most natural thing in the world to the Bank of England’s Canadian governor Mark Carney.

Carney, after all, is himself an Old Goldmanite and a member of the most exclusive club in world economic policy-making — much more influential than David Cameron’s kitchen cabinet of Old Etonians.

Carney spent the largest stretch of his career — from 1990 to 2003 — working for Goldman Sachs in Tokyo, New York and London.

The choice of Goldman bankers for senior roles at the Bank of England  is a novel development for an institution that has always frowned on any suggestions of dual loyalty or conflicts of interest.

When Gordon Brown was Chancellor (from 1997 to 2007), he steadfastly refused to appoint the person many regarded as the most talented economist of his generation, Gavyn Davies, as governor of the Bank of England.

Brown feared a political backlash because of Davies’s role as the millionaire chief global economist at Goldman Sachs, and the fact that his wife, Sue Nye, was a special assistant to the Chancellor.

However, despite 13 years in a variety of roles at Goldman, and a successful stint as governor of the Bank of Canada, Carney was given not only the Bank of England role but also the job of chairman of the Financial Stability Board.

This is the body established by the G20 committee of rich and emerging market nations to try to reform global banking — including the rapacious bonus culture — in the aftermath of the 2007-9 credit crunch.

Indeed, Old Goldmanites seem to be everywhere. When Broadbent and Carney meet fellow central bankers, there will be a number of familiar faces around the table.

The chairman of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, who is credited with rescuing Euroland from total implosion with his promise to do ‘whatever it takes’ to save the euro, is another former Goldman Sachs banker.

Arguably, he is the most powerful figure in European finance, having forced Euroland interest rates down to rock-bottom levels and bought the government bonds of Europe’s struggling ‘Club Med’ economies before exchanging them for cash.

He is now trying to tackle Europe’s near-bankrupt banking system.

In the U.S., there is the amiable Bill Dudley, the former head of U.S. economics at Goldman, who is now president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the operating arm of America’s central bank.

Goldman boss Lloyd Blankfein once explained to me that one of the advantages of paying Goldman Sachs’s bankers so lavishly — they sit at the top of the bankers’ pay league — was that the ‘partners’ can retire young and very rich, and then go off to jobs in the public service.

There is, however, a deeply disturbing paradox in the fact that Goldman bankers are now effectively running the world’s monetary system.

The Goldman culture of creating ever-more complex securities and trades, coupled with absurdly high pay and bonuses as incentives for the bank’s workforce, were at the very core of the financial crisis that brought the world to the brink of economic collapse and led to a long period of painful austerity.

None of these former Goldman economists and executives, who are now the overlords of the global economy, seems to have predicted the fact that the world was sitting on a financial time-bomb.

It seems very strange that when there are so many talented economic thinkers, Nobel prize winners and lifelong central bankers to be called upon, it is nearly always Goldmanites that carry off the plum jobs.

Allowing such a cultish group to control the levers of global finance shows, I would suggest, a worrying lack of imagination and judgment by the ruling class of politicians that appointed them.

The concentration of such huge economic power in the hands of a small cabal of economists and financiers, drawn from such a narrow pool of interests, is deeply unhealthy.

However honourable the motives of this group, there remains a fear that when the next crisis comes — as it inevitably will — their concern to protect their cronies in the banking world will take precedence over their responsibility to look after the long-suffering public.

Spa launches fat-busting laser that claims to give you a trim tum like the Duchess of Cambridge in just FOUR weeks

Before and afterAnyone know where I can buy some incontinence pants, because I’ve just pmsl. Another classic load of old rubbish from the Mail today read here.

If you want to read the article, feel free, what a load of old nonsense. I’m not knocking Harvey Nichols’ Beyond MediSpa, I’m sure they are very genuine, although the image included in the article is so obviously “Photoshopped” it’s a joke. The images are supposed to have been taken 4 weeks apart.  It’s the same image, same shadows, same clothing, same colour tone, same moles. Bra line identical, thong line identical, 1st image soft focus, 2nd image, bit of work around the front bottom area, slight difference where the front bottom thong has been altered, tummy moved in a bit, oh and image 1 is slightly magnified, but it’s still the same shot.

goldilocksHowever, that’s not what made me laugh, it was the shot of Goldilocks Middleton and the volley tummy. Ha Ha, is it April 1st, nope just checked it’s November 24. That image was taken sometime in October.

I don’t want to labour the point here, not that Kate would understand what that means, but we did cover this a few weeks ago see here.

If that is the tummy of a woman who a couple of months ago really gave birth to 8lb 6oz Prince George, then there is no hope for any of us.

What has  happened here is damage limitation.  What are the chances of getting a shot of the royal flesh when she’s not on holiday? The volley tummy shot was never meant to have happened. It did, questions were asked, this article comes out a few weeks later to sort of make it plausible. Nice try, but I don’t buy it.

BBC Children In Need 2013. More Of The Same Old Hypocrisy.

Banksy Savile bbc smallAre you ready for it, got your red nose within reach, oh sorry, that’s Len’s gig isn’t it, not Tel’s, I get a bit confused with these guilt trip telethons. Look, I kicked off about it last year (here), so I won’t go on about it too much, but here are a few points to consider.

No child on this planet should be in need in 2013. One little old lady in Buckingham Palace has enough personal wealth to solve these problems over night.

How much does it cost the BBC to run this “boost a celebrities profile” campaign each year? It’s your money they are wasting to ask you to give up more cash. Sounds familiar doesn’t it.

Why does Pudsey have one eye covered? Bit symbolic that!

This is all from the corporation who systematically covered up child abuse within its walls.

The People’s Voice. David Icke and His Team Pull It Off, Against All Odds.

footer-logoI’m not sure what was better yesterday, watching the money raising “People’s Voice” telethon, or keeping up with attempts on Twitter to rubbish it.

So 17.00 came and went. I did actually start to think that after all of the hype, nothing would happen. We carried the whole 5 hour show live on http://alternative-news-network.net and to be honest, I nearly removed the feed from the front page, but after a few tense minutes, “The People’s Voice” burst onto the screen.

I am, however very disappointed, not in TPV itself, but how little support it received from the so called alternative media. It appears that people are so wrapped up in their little self important corners of the internet that they are frightened to praise the efforts of a small group of people doing their best to make a difference.

Last night was never going to be a polished launch of the station. It was an introductory telethon to test things, give a taster of things to come, and raise some much needed cash. In my opinion, it not only achieved that, but far exceeded anything I had hoped for. Yes there were nerves, there were technical glitches, and the odd questionable guest, but for what is, lets face it, a shoe string global station, what they achieved was truly miraculous.

I really believe “The Peoples Voice” has the potential to blow the system wide open. So why are so few people openly supporting it? And why are so many pontificating over every minor glitch, almost willing it to fail. Even on Ickes own forum today, instead of shouting from the rooftops how great it was, they are arguing over why Icke is giving into Ofcom regarding a licence.

Here’s the bottom line you bunch of very strange “activists”. Trust David Icke to do whatever he has to to make it work! Have you spent the last 22 years giving up a successful career and being the butt of the media’s campaign against you like he has. Single handedly fighting for a cause that affects all of us. No you haven’t, so just shut up and trust the guy. Sorry, but I just don’t get it.

Yes, we support Icke. Over on ANN, we have been promoting The Peoples Voice for months, and will continue to do so. Is he the new Messiah, no and contrary to the MSM likes of Wogan, he never said he was, but he is a person who realised many years before most of us that the system is evil and not working in our best interests. As a lone voice he stood up and told it how it really is, regardless of ridicule and personal threats for his own safety. To be honest, until you can match the effort he has put into this war on evil, you have not earned the right to  judge him.

Icke was one of the first to say “Paedophilia is the cement that holds the system together”. He exposed truths about the system that made very uncomfortable reading. To date, none of this has been proved to be incorrect, in fact in light of the Savile revelations, we have only just uncovered the tip of the vile iceberg. The corrupt system has closed ranks and is doing their best confuse the issue by spreading disinfo, false investigations, false court cases, and every trick and smoke screen they can to cover up the truth. The real truth behind this whole paedophile network has yet to be exposed, but it will, and when it is, Icke will be proved right again.

As a side issue, one of the strange spin off of the Savile case is the awful truth that any mention of paedophilia in a blog title brings in huge hits to websites. So much so that some sites claiming to be “alternative” have been set up in the last eighteen months dedicated to nothing else. I really don’t get this, it’s like setting up a site about how to build your own house, but only talking about the mortar used to stick the bricks together. Yes, exposing paedophilia is a very important subject, but it is part of the problem, not the whole problem, and certainly not a reason to  be a pseudo expert, simply rehashing stuff put out by the MSM.  This mini rant doesn’t of course include the sites run by “real” people who have survived unimaginable experiences at the hands of the system. They know who they are, and can write about what the hell they want too, although most of the genuine sites cover a wide range of topics.

Anyway, back to The People’s Voice. The other big gripe doing the rounds at the moment was including Peter Tatchell in the opening extravagansa. To be totally honest, my first reaction last weeks was “WTF?” why give him a voice, (I’m not a fan). But, thinking about it in the cold light of day, the point of The Peoples Voice is not to exclude anyone. If it does the job it’s intended to, how can it expose the system  if it hides from it? Let’s hope that they include the likes of Blair, Clarke, Brittan, and McAlpine to name just four.

So all in all, a great start to what could be something really special. Please get behind it, these chances don’t come along that often. Oh and if you don’t like it or trust Icke, do a better job yourself.

Russell Brand. Real Man Of The People?

brand and KhanGreat news everyone, Russell Brand and Jemima Khan confirm they are giving their romance another go. OMG, I’m so excited for the happy couple.

Brand, who did so well exchanging blows with the razor sharp Paxman and is now the champion of the common man, for change in this country.  This is exactly what we need, a high profile intellectual celebrity fighting in our corner. And what a lovely pair they both make, Russell with is trademark open honest face, and Jemima, looking meek and humble as ever.

Sorry, I just can’t do this. I’ve tried to write a nice piece about this pair, and it is physical impossible for my fingers to type the sort of rubbish the tabloids are pumping out on a daily basis. Anyone who really believes Brand is anything other than a Trojan horse just doesn’t get it.  Ex lover of Globalist puppet star Katy Perry, Brand talks a very good talk, but that is all it is.

The fact that he is dating Jemima Khan / Goldsmith is enough to show even the most gullible person that this is all an act.

Let’s just join a few dots in case you have forgotten what’s happening here.

jamima Imran

Jemima Khan, ex wife of ex cricketer and Pakistani politician Imran Khan.

She is the daughter of Sir James Goldsmith.

James Goldsmith is alleged to have had along standing affair with Frances Shand Kydd, Princess Diana’s mother. Shand Kydd was part of the Rothschild bloodline.

Goldsmith is alleged to be Diana’s biological father, therefore Jemima is alleged to be Diana’s half sister.

Zac Goldsmith                   Ben Goldsmith               Diana   Goldsmith Spencer             Jemima Khan

Notice any family resemblance here?

Zac is married to Kate Rothschild. Ben is married to Alice Rothschild. Diana’s mother was a Rothschild. OK, her maiden name was Roche, but still part of the Rothschild clan.

So we are really expected to believe that Russell Brand is a real man of the people. Yea right.

You’ll be telling me Prince George isn’t Jewish next!

Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson. How Involved Was David Cameron.

Jimmy-Murdoch-and-the-News-fo-the-World As the Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson case gains momentum, we learn today that they had a six year affair from 1998. Wow, lucky Grant Mitchell didn’t find out, I mean, it’s all about family ain’t it. What would Peggy, Phil, and Sam (she was the one with the lump of nose missing) have thought?

Anyway, enough of the jokes, what I am really waiting for are revelations about just how close they both were to Dave Cameron LOL. We already know Brooks and Cameron were very close, exchanging frequent texts often ending in LOL, until she told him it means “laugh out loud” and not “lots of love”.

And lets not forget that Dave employed Coulson against much advice that he was unsuitable. So just why did Dave insist on employing Rebekahs ex lover?

President Obama Catches Fainting Woman During Obamacare Speech.

obama1 I’m not going to spend too much time writing about this, here’s the short version.

Obama gives speech about Obamacare, woman faints, Obama turns around just in time to save her. Makes joke about long speech, waits for applause.

Just a bit too obvious this time Barry, we’ve seen it all before.

BRITISH GAS BOSS SAM LAIDLAW WHO HAS SEEN PAY RISE 36% IN LINE WITH BILLS

Sam Laidlaw

How’s it going out there? Nights starting to draw in, clocks going back soon, chestnuts roasting on an open fire? Starting to feel a bit chilly in the evenings? Good, because you won’t be able to afford to turn the heating on, so just die slowly of hypothermia and reduce the surplus population.

The very smart man pictured above is Sam, shame it wasn’t Sid really. To be more precise, his name is William Samuel Hugh Laidlaw, son of Sir Christopher Laidlaw (1922-2010), former Chairman of BP. Quite why he calls himself Sam is none of my business, perhaps Willy doesn’t have  the right gravitas. Guess where Willy was educated, got it in one, Eton. then onto Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge. Hang on a minute, isn’t that the same college that Ken Clarke and Peter Goldsmith attended? Yes, but not at the same time. Anyway, Willy, sorry, Sam is CEO of Centrica, or British Gas to you and me, who have just announced another shameful price hike of 9.2%.

He will of course blame it on global prices, and needing to invest in infrastructure blah de blah, but fail to mention his £2.35 million salary, an increase of 36% on his 2008 salary. Oh, and the £2.35 million is basic, with bonuses it comes to a grotesque £4.97 million according to the Mail. But here’s the killer punch, during 2011, Mr Laidlaw received heating discounts worth almost £700 from Centrica – more than half the average family bill.

It doesn’t have to be like this people, you have the power to change it, or sit back and watch granny die, your choice.

As we are fast approaching the festive season, here is a little Christmas Carol for you Sam.

  • “At this festive season of the year, Mr Scrooge, … it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Poor and destitute, who suffer greatly at the present time. Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir.”
    “Are there no prisons?”
    “Plenty of prisons…”
    “And the Union workhouses.” demanded Scrooge. “Are they still in operation?”
    “Both very busy, sir…”
    “Those who are badly off must go there.”
    “Many can’t go there; and many would rather die.”
    “If they would rather die,” said Scrooge, “they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.”

Sweet dreams Sam,

Laidlaw Scrooge
