While their government spends trillions of dollars killing brown people for their oil, opium and other resources the people of America are drifting towards the biggest economic collapse this world has ever seen. (The link shows a very underestimated vision of the real cost such as the millions of dead, hurt, misplaced Iraqi’s and Afghanis and the hundreds of thousands of dying, sick and psychologically damaged US and other countries troops due to DU and having to live through the horrors of war but it does a nice job of showing some realities anyway)
What does that mean? It means people having to eat rats to survive and while rats actually don’t taste to bad (Musk rats which were a danger to Dutch dikes were served as a delicacy in a restaurant believe it or not.) eating wild rats to survive in the richest country in the world, I hope you’ll agree, is a sign of extreme poverty. If you think that will never happen, think again because it already does.
1.5 children are homeless in the shining house on the hill and 50 million people live under the poverty line and struggle to survive everyday without health care, daily food and work.
Poor people in las Vegas are living in underground rain drains to have a roof over their heads and are at risk of drowning whenever it rains and all over the US tent camps are springing up in forest areas.
With women threatening to jump of buildings, 50% of it’s youth unemployed, food kitchens unable to cope with the amount of people needing food and the tax revenue slashed to almost zero it is clear that the austerity measures have only succeeded to ruin the middle class and the economy and will never allow the Greek people any measure of relieve and opportunity to work their way out of debt.
Of course this was the plan all along when Goldman started it’s predatory attack on Greece and with the Prime minister now an unelected Goldman Sachs stooge the coup is almost complete. That is if the population submits but if not then Farage’s dire warning might become a reality and I for one would not like to be one of the corrupt elite at the top if that happens!

Reports are emerging from Greece that Athens has at least five buildings in flames one of which is a Eurobank building and a Starbucks.
10 of thousands of people are rioting while the police has run out of tear gas after it was announced that Greece would be getting a whopping 320 billion bail out to be paid straight to the banks after they agreed to monstrous austerity measures including the minimum wage being cut by a whopping 22%.
The final vote is not in yet so I hope this sends a warning to the unelected Greek bankster government and ladies and gentlemen may I remind you that Italy and Portugal are in the same dire straits and if Greece defaults it is the beginning of the end for the entire financial system.
Tonight’s protest in Athens has all the makings of the vintage ones from May of 2010, and the nigh is still young. Here are some updates:

Greece’s two largest unions have announced a 48-hour strike over the new austerity measures endorsed by the government in return for bailout loans.
The unions, General confederation of Workers of Greece (GSEE) and Civil Servants Supreme Administrative Council (ADEDY), announced on Thursday that their members will go on a two-day strike from Friday in protest at the controversial decision.
“We will hold a general strike on Friday and Saturday along with the civil servants’ union,” said a spokeswoman with GSEE which represents the private sector.
ADEDY’s Secretary General Ilias Iliopoulos described the measures as “painful” which will “create misery for youths, unemployed and pensioners do not leave us much room.”
So far Soros has a finger in every dirty pie, no compunction about manipulating global events and entire Nations so I’m not in any doubt he is doing exactly that. But I also think that we are indeed heading to collapse and chaos.
Over the past couple of weeks, George Soros, the IMF and the World Bank have all issued incredibly chilling warnings about the possibility of an impending economic collapse. Considering the power and the influence that Soros, the IMF and the World Bank all have over the global financial system, this is very alarming. So are they purposely trying to scare the living daylights out of us? Soros is even warning of riots in the streets of America. Unfortunately, way too often top global leaders say something in public because they want to “push” events in a certain direction. Do George Soros and officials at the IMF and World Bank hope to prevent a worldwide financial collapse by making these statements, or are other agendas at work? We may never know. But one thing is for sure – many of the top financial officials in the world are using language that is downright “apocalyptic”, and that is not a good sign for the rest of 2012.
Right now, George Soros is saying things that he has never said before. Just check out what George Soros recently told Newsweek….
“I am not here to cheer you up. The situation is about as serious and difficult as I’ve experienced in my career,” Soros tells Newsweek. “We are facing an extremely difficult time, comparable in many ways to the 1930s, the Great Depression. We are facing now a general retrenchment in the developed world, which threatens to put us in a decade of more stagnation, or worse. The best-case scenario is a deflationary environment. The worst-case scenario is a collapse of the financial system.”
If you were only to read the MSM in New Zealand this would be your reality: Fire thousands of people and you get better services (until the shock wears off and exhaustion sets in for those remaining) for the “voters”! The term voter indicating that the people voting will vote for National because they fired all those people. I wonder what those voters who got fired have to say about that but anyway you get my drift.
So I decided to link to a few demonstrations and protest around the world all of which are against the banks trying to enforce austerity measures to drive millions of people into a poverty not seen since the Great depression while they are living it up with their ill gotten gains which they use to bribe the police forces whom they need to protect them against the 99% they’ve robbed blind.
With 56 million Americans living in poverty and the global financial system collapsing as we speak you would think she had something better to with her millions.
In spending such a crazy amount of money for the sake of her dogs Petra Ecclestone has overtaken the callousness of the alleged remark made by Marie Antoinette in telling the starving people of France to eat cake if they did not have bread. I hereby award her the Marie Antoinette award in the hopes that when the Revolution starts her demise will be quick and painless.
So in England hundreds of kids go on a rampage, in Greece they burn banks and in Egypt and Israel they camp out in tents with the Israeli demonstrators upping the ante with a guillotine for all to see on the Rothschild boulevard but in Germany the financial fortress of Europe the citizens are happy and contented surely!
While British Politicians continue to insist the riots in the UK were not political there has been a strong rebuke against those claims.
Take for example the recent article I reprinted from the Guardian newspaper that puts the blame of the riots squarely on the shoulders of the openly blatant looting of the public by the economic elite.
The Economic Elite Have Enslaved Freedom With Banker Bailout Debt
Looting with the lights on
We keep hearing England’s riots weren’t political – but looters know that their elites have been committing daylight robbery
I keep hearing comparisons between the London riots and riots in other European cities – window-smashing in Athens or car bonfires in Paris. And there are parallels, to be sure: a spark set by police violence, a generation that feels forgotten.
This is said in all seriousness. As if the massive bank bailouts never happened, followed by the defiant record bonuses. Followed by the emergency G8 and G20 meetings, when the leaders decided, collectively, not to do anything to punish the bankers for any of this, nor to do anything serious to prevent a similar crisis from happening again. Instead they would all go home to their respective countries and force sacrifices on the most vulnerable. They would do this by firing public sector workers, scapegoating teachers, closing libraries, upping tuition fees, rolling back union contracts, creating rush privatizations of public assets and decreasing pensions – mix the cocktail for where you live. And who is on television lecturing about the need to give up these “entitlements”? The bankers and hedge-fund managers, of course.
Of course London’s riots weren’t a political protest. But the people committing night-time robbery sure as hell know that their elites have been committing daytime robbery. Saqueos are contagious. The Tories are right when they say the rioting is not about the cuts. But it has a great deal to do with what those cuts represent: being cut off. Locked away in a ballooning underclass with the few escape routes previously offered – a union job, a good affordable education – being rapidly sealed off. The cuts are a message. They are saying to whole sectors of society: you are stuck where you are, much like the migrants and refugees we turn away at our increasingly fortressed borders.
Those protests have now spread to Germany and the Germans are making it absolutely clear their actions are political. In fact, they are further making it clear the are revolting against the globalist fat cats who continue to rob the middle class and poor specifically by embarking in a campaign to torch the cars of the “fat cats” all across the country.
The outbreak of the protests follow plans by France and Germany to implement a single European government to deal with the raging debt crisis, under which their would be would be imposed constitutional amendments to all nations in the EU to impose harsh austerity measures to continue to fund perpetual illegal wars and pay for more banker bailouts.
For some Revolution is a heroic word. For some it paints pictures of men and women striding forward to take back their lives and their hopes and who have their senses about them as they finally wake up to the tricks of the ruling elite.
But it’s not. Revolution is not the result of enlightenment in the under classes. It is not some miracle change in society which enables them to rise up and make a better country for everybody.
Revolution is one of the ugliest things that can happen in a society and it wounds, kills and destroys innocents and property and before things get better it gets a whole lot worse.
Revolution is what happens when pressure reaches a flashpoint and like an explosion the outcome is one of devastation and utter destruction and once it starts it won’t stop until that pressure has evaporated and the origin has been dealt with. It’s like a festering wound and as long as the infection burns the flames will lap at the rest of the body politic taking whatever healthy tissue is left with it.
Revolution starts when those who have no longer a stake in the existing paradigm and who have nothing left to loose loose it. In England it was the death of a small time drug dealer who was killed when a police bullet hit him when it was alleged the police tried to “arrest” him.
If every other guy is trying to make ends meet with selling dope and the rest is hustling to buy their dope in order to forget the hopelessness and poverty while reading the news papers and seeing rich bankers getting bonuses for doing nothing but destroying whatever wealth is left after their corporation mates have exported solid jobs to China you have a recipe for disaster. That is the start of a revolution.
Were does it end? In a bloodbath if there is still enough money to go around in the middle class but it could go all the way and turn society around if the rich keep looting and the middle class becomes part of the underclass.
This is not going to go away. The people of Egypt, Tunisia are doing it already and now Spain and again Greece have followed once again and soon France, Italy, Ireland and hopefully the people of the US and all the countries subjected to the fake austerity measures perpetrated on them to pay for the bankers excesses will take to the streets and say we will take it no more. Enough with the destruction of our planet, your wars and your greed. Go to the hell from which you came and leave us be.
