...they like free trade, hate paying taxes and don’t want to get sued!  Obviously, these are guys feeding off of the military/industrial spending by our government and like those 47% people who mooch off of the government teats, they want to not pay taxes on the money they make via taxpayer spending!  Yes, the despicable 47% has a lot of rich people!  Lots and lots and lots of rich people, nearly all of them, actually.

Weekly Update

Tensions Continue in Greece
Tensions in Greece mounted over Greece’s impending need for more financial aid and its plan to make additional budget cuts in order to qualify for aid.  Both internal and external pressures are squeezing the Greek government.  Hundreds of thousands of Greek workers staged a strike Wednesday to protest the anticipated new budget cuts and Greek debtors are pushing the Greek government to force through the cuts.  The Greek government is preparing to sign off on a 13.5 billion euro package of cuts and other fiscal reforms in exchange for continued bailout installments.  In return Greece is expecting 31.5 billion euros in aid next month.
Spain’s Gov Yields Start to Move Back Up
Spain introduced its own round of spending cuts and tax increases while still delaying their request for a bailout in the hopes of getting more favorable conditions.  They announced 13 billion euros in spending cuts and tax hikes for 2013.  On Friday an audit showed that Spain needs 78 billion euros to recapitalize its banks and yields on ten year Spanish government debt started moving back toward the 6% level.  All of this while rumors on the street started circulating that Spain’s credit rating could be cut below investment grade.
The Engine of the Eurozone Slowing
Germany has continued to show some signs of slowing down this week as the number of jobless claims rose for the sixth straight month in September and German business confidence fell for a fifth straight month.
China’s Central Bank Trying to keep up with the Fed and ECB
China’s central bank pumped 365 billion Yuan (58 billion Dollars) into its banking system, giving global investors new hope that the world’s second largest economy might turn around its trend of decelerating growth.  The announcement was made after China’s major industrials announced a decrease in earnings which marked the fifth straight month of reported declining earnings.
Mixed Data Out of the US
The US Department of Commerce revised the second quarter annualized growth rate down to 1.3% from 1.7%.  Us durable goods orders fell by 13.2% in August, their sharpest drop since January of 09.  However, housing data was better as home prices and the volume of home sales increased.
Markets Take Back Bernanke’s Gift
Share markets suffered a second week of declines as investors continued to worry about the slowing global economy with the US markets erasing most of the gain from after the feds QE3 announcement.  Gold and Silver on the other hand are still near their post QE3 announcement highs

Paul Craig Roberts: A Culture of Delusion

America is lost. The beliefs of many Americans, perhaps a majority, are comprised of lies. These beliefs have become emotional crutches, and Americans will fight to defend the lies that they believe. The inability of Americans to accept facts that are contrary to their beliefs is the reason the country is leaderless and will remain so. Unless scales fall from Americans’ eyes, Americans are doomed.

Postal Service to default on second $5B payment



QE3 Confirms The Economic Implosion

There is little doubt that the economy will not recover any time soon and QE3 proves that trend is in motion in addition to it being election time. The push to hunt down capital on a global scale is creating a massive decline in the VELOCITY of money. As money simply hoards, the United States is trying to drink itself sober at least until the elections are over. Ask any drunk – it does not work. Unemployment will continue to rise. We are in the middle of a major economic crisis and no amount of easing will reverse the course that we are on.
QE3 is certainly going to be a very unprecedented and controversial move. But we have to pick up the rug and look closely at what they are really doing. The Federal Reserve today in announcing the initiation of an open-ended round of Quantitative Easing (QE3), they have really embarked on a welfare package for the banks – not a stimulus for the economy. They have extended the period for which it will keep rates between 0 and 1/4% to mid-2015. Hello? Has anyone bothered to think out of the box? Japan has been doing this for almost 20 years. It has produced a 26 year Great Depression. As always, the government ONLY looks at one side – the bankers. Screw the people! What about the retired who count on using their savings to survive? You are reducing their income to virtually zero by their own fake numbers while in reality the cost of living rises year after year because taxation is excluded. Even Japan is doubling its retail sales tax and this is not supposed to be inflationary? The only people the Fed is stimulating once again are the bankers. That isALL they know how to do. It is like fining you wife because you did not take out the trash. They never address the economy in a direct manner.
Here is the paragraph from the FOMC statement that explains this latest insanity:

“….The Committee agreed today to increase policy accommodation by purchasing additional agency mortgage-backed securities at a pace of $40 billion per month. The Committee also will continue through the end of the year its program to extend the average maturity of its holdings of securities as announced in June, and it is maintaining its existing policy of reinvesting principal payments from its holdings of agency debt and agency mortgage-backed securities in agency mortgage-backed securities. These actions…should put downward pressure on longer-term interest rates, support mortgage markets, and help to make broader financial conditions more accommodative.”
The Fed has announced it will buy more of the toxic mortgage-backed securities (MBS) that set in motion the entire economic decline. The banks will be quick to sell this garbage to the Fed so now we are not even buying AAA US Treasuries. One can only guess that they finally figured out buying US Treasuries will not stimulate the domestic economy because foreign investors can sell it to them. What happens then? Guess what! No money is injected in the domestic economy for it all leaves and creates booms elsewhere. Unlike QE1 and QE2, no dollar amount or time-limit was placed on this program. Clearly, the Fed is trying desperately to help Obama because the Republicans have already made it known Bernanke will go. The Fed essentially announced it will be purchasing $40 billion in MBS per month until further notice.
This is a significant change from prior operations. There we had QE1 “cost” $1.7 trillion. QE2 was half a trillion (+/-), while the new plan QE3 has no scheduled end. It is an entirely different, animal and confirms what we have been warning about – the economy is being systematically destroyed by people who cannot even hold a light to the characters of the movie Dumb & Dumber. They have no understanding of what they are doing. If you really want toSTIMULATE the economy, even John Maynard Keynes said you have to lower taxes! Hunting down Americans overseas by passing a law that any foreign entity who FAILS to report what an American is doing will have its assets confiscated in the USA is communistic. That is hardly the land of the free and home of the brave. If you are an American overseas, you are told to get out. They assume thatANY American with an account overseas is hiding cash from them. However, this means Americans can no longer engage in international business UNLESS they have foreign partners. This is having the same drastic effect as PROTECTIONISM of the 1930s. This time, Americans are being prevented from engaging in international business – not foreigners. This is entirely one-sided. That should really help job growth domestically. Even the Apple IPhone is made in China. Hence, this brain-dead idea is already having a profound reduction in real economic growth for the United States.
The Federal Reserve statement explained it view:
“If the outlook for the labor market does not improve substantially, the Committee will continue its purchases of agency mortgage-backed securities, undertake additional asset purchases, and employ its other policy tools as appropriate until such improvement is achieved in a context of price stability. In determining the size, pace, and composition of its asset purchases, the Committee will, as always, take appropriate account of the likely efficacy and costs of such purchases.”
Employment is still declining not only because taxes are rising making small business hesitant about hiring new people, but State & Municipal governments cannot print money. They are in a downward spiral that suggests there will be further layoffs from this sector as well. Consequently, employment remains weak and is expected to further decline despite the Fed’s desperate measures. In response, the Fed is opening the flood-gates even further and vowing to continue to do so until this failed brain-dead strategy starts working. Try eliminating income taxes instead of buying toxic debt from the bankers. Eliminate the payroll tax and watch unemployment shrink! You have to prove you are not a terrorist to get on a plane or even stay in a hotel today. However, don’t pay your taxes and they know who you are then. Do something for the people instead of always the bankers. They were able to create toxic debt, and every time they blow up, the Fed runs to bail them out. They are NOT the economy singlehandedly. This program will again fail. Until there is real reform, there is no hope in sight. We are just following the Japanese model and look where that got them. Expect more volatility next week.

The Presidency Has Become A Joke
Clearly the majority of people in this country have never heard about the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission Supreme Court Decision, which essentially allows corporations and wealthy individuals the ability to spend an unlimited amount  of money to buy an election on behalf of the candidate that they want to control - including the President. 


How Do You Take Your Poison?
We will all swallow our cup of corporate poison. We can take it from nurse Romney, who will tell us not to whine and play the victim, or we can take it from nurse Obama, who will assure us that this hurts him even more than it hurts us, but one way or another the corporate hemlock will be shoved down our throats. The choice before us is how it will be administered.

Ralph Nader: Obama’s a ‘War Criminal’
SEE VIDEO at article (more videos displayed at the end of the first one)

Nader gave Obama this much: He’s the lesser of two evils when compared to GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney. But he said Obama is “the more effective evil because he brings credibility, he brings the democratic heritage to it, he has legitimized the lawless war-mongering and militarism abroad of George W. Bush.”

Nader doesn’t let Republicans off easy, either, calling them “the worst Republican Party in history.”
“We’re dealing with a real sick, decaying Democratic Party that can’t defend the country against the cruelest, most ignorant, most anti-worker, most war-mongering, most Wall Street–indentured Republican Party in its history, since the 1850s.”
As for Romney, Nader said...He’s basically a corporation running for president masquerading as a human being.”

Paul Craig Roberts: USA to Continue Wars As Long As Dollar Remains Reserve Currency

The threat is the neoconservative ideology, unleashed by the Soviet collapse. It is a form of Marxism in which American "democratic capitalism" instead of the proletariat has won history's verdict--"the end of history."  Americans are the "indispensable people," and the US is the "indispensable nation" with the right and responsibility to establish its hegemony over the world.  Adolf Hitler called the same thing "Aryan Superiority." Now Washington asserts the superiority. The neoconservative ideology threatens the world with nuclear war.

Poll: Romney Ahead in Presidential Race, Say Replacement Refs

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—G.O.P. Presidential nominee Mitt Romney finally got some good news today as he found himself ahead of President Obama in a poll of N.F.L. replacement referees.
The survey, which immediately lifted the spirits of the Romney campaign, was taken among replacement refs on the field during N.F.L. games that they were supposed to be officiating last Sunday and Monday.
According to the poll, if the election were held today the replacement refs would have Mr. Romney beating President Obama by a score of 14-12.
By a wide majority, the replacement refs “strongly agreed” with the statement, “I’m pretty sure I’m right about this but I need to talk it over with some other people first.”

"The state — or, to make matters more concrete, the government — consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting 'A' to satisfy 'B'. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods. "

Who Exploits Our Nation Is Big Issue In This Unfair Election

There is a third party candidate who is virtually never mentioned in the mainstream news or is allowed to appear on TV due to our media owners backing this ‘no choice’ election process:  Gary Johnson files anti-trust lawsuit to appear in presidential debates.  Yes, the Libertarians have a candidate!  And note that Ron Paul is NOT going around, urging his supporters to support Gary Johnson.  He cynically milked his own followers and then basically left them hanging.  I hope they all vote libertarian because this will force the issue of third party status, a thing the US has been missing for years and with the collapse of the entire left, means virtually no ‘mainstream’ candidate has to talk about any issues with someone who can openly dispute their talking points during debates.

Gerald Celente-The First Great War of the 21st Century has Begun


Dear CIGAs,
Top trends forecaster Gerald Celente says, “The first great war of the 21st century has begun, and people are afraid to call it what it is.”  Celente says the extreme violence in in the Middle East and North Africa is Not because of a movie that pokes fun at Islam.  It’s because of decades of bad U.S. foreign policy.  Celente calls people like Rudolf Giuliani a “s***head” and a “scumbag” for lying to the American people about the real reasons why the Muslim world is enraged.  Celente goes on to say, “If anybody says I went over the edge, this is a matter of life and death.”  Celente also believes the world is being taken to war because the world economy “. . . is collapsing.  It’s collapsing in front of our eyes.  The numbers are there.”  Celente tells people to “buy gold and silver” to preserve wealth and says, “All around the world they are dumping dough into their economies to keep them going.”  Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Gerald Celente of the Trends Research Institute.

Romney in Final Push to Alienate Remaining Voters

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—With just forty-three days to go until the election, Mitt Romney is in a race against time to offend the few voters he has not already alienated, his campaign manager said today.
“So far, Mitt’s efforts to make voters dislike him have gone exactly as planned,” said the campaign manager Matt Rhoades. “But let’s not kid ourselves—we’ve still got a few supporters out there and we’ve got to find ways to piss them off.”
As Mr. Romney embarked on a bus tour with the goal of spreading additional unease about his candidacy, his campaign manager reflected on a program of systematic alienation that has so far “worked like clockwork.”
“We really got the ball rolling at the Olympics,” Mr. Rhoades said. “I seriously doubted that Mitt could turn a visit to London into a show of international ineptitude, but he was like, ‘Matt, trust me—I can do this.’ ”
Mr. Rhoades also credited the addition of Rep. Paul Ryan to the ticket for being “invaluable” in scaring off potential voters: “Mitt knew he could get booed off the stage at the N.A.A.C.P., but it takes someone special to get booed off the stage at the A.A.R.P.”
The campaign manager acknowledged that there were “a few hiccups” in the plan to turn off voters, but that the Romney team worked quickly to fix them: “At the Convention in Tampa, Clint Eastwood was planning to go out and read a prepared speech endorsing Mitt. I pulled him aside and said, ‘Clint, that will ruin everything we’re trying to do here. Shout at a chair instead.’ And then we were golden.”
The “secret video” showing Mr. Romney at a fundraiser was another coup for the campaign, Mr. Rhoades said, adding, “We actually shot that video ourselves and then ‘leaked’ it to Mother Jones. It was the simplest way we could think of to take forty-seven per cent of the votes off the table.”
Mr. Rhoades admitted that he is gratified by how well the campaign’s plan to offend different constituencies has worked so far, but with only six weeks to go until the election, they are leaving nothing to chance: “This week, we’re releasing a video of Mitt swinging a cat by its tail.”

Ralph Nader: Not a Gaffe, But The Real Romney

Mr. Romney doesn’t understand the double standard where government checks, whether already paid for or not, to people are called “entitlements” while far bigger checks to corporations are called “incentives.” Romney has lost control of his self-consciousness.
The avarice of Romney and his buddies at the strip-mining, job-exporting, bankrupting private equity company called Bain Capital has no bounds.
He is, essentially, a corporation running for president masquerading as an individual.

The New Con: Three-Card-Mario

“One of the classic short cons, three-card Mario is a new swindle that uses official and misleading statements and trickery to swindle victims out of large amounts of cash. It’s one of the oldest cons around, and dates back to “the shell game,” a similar scheme that was popular during the Middle Ages. The new version uses a Central Bank and a Ponzi Scheme that loans money for debt, substitutes debt for collateral and then returns cash back to the grifter as he pledges the collateral back to those that lent him the money. This new European con has eliminated the use of cards in its play. Investors are the ‘marks’ and governments are the perpetrators.”

What Mitt Romney Also Said: A Glimpse Of The Endgame?
And that is how the Fed effectively took over control of the United States, as without it, it is game over. This is also why the ongoing presidential election is a farce, and has absolutely no bearing or significance for the future of the US, whose true ruler does not reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but instead holds America hostage in a powerful Stockholm Syndrome grip from the deep recesses of the Marriner Eccles building (the Federal Reserve) located, paradoxically, on Constitution Avenue.
Don't worry though: like any "true democracy", the real "leader" of the nation will never be eligible for popular vote. Ever.

The Trouble With Printing Money

In order to believe that the Fed or any other central bank can get us back to 'normal,' you have to believe that it is normal for borrowing to exceed income and (here's the kicker) that it can do so forever.  Many people cling to the thin hope that somehow the Fed and its related entities across the globe can get us safely back on the yellow line in the above chart, angling forever upwards at 45 degrees.
Well, if it's not possible for you, personally, to forever borrow more than you earn without someday getting into financial difficulty, it is not possible for two or ten or 310 million of you to do so.  The math does not change simply because a nation is involved instead of an individual.

...the simple fact remains that money printed out of thin air cannot, has not, and will not ever lead to prosperity.  How could it?  It arises without any effort at all, no work performed, no goods transformed or lives improved, no land planted and tended well, no services rendered, and no capital formed.  It is just conjured into existence.

Prepare For A 15% Food Price Surge, Rabobank Warns
The record US, and global, summer drought has come and gone but its aftereffects are only now going to be felt, at least according to a new Rabobank report, which asserts that food prices are about to soar by 15% or more following mass slaughter of farm animals which will cripple supply once the current inventory of meat is exhausted. 

Poll: Romney Still Doing Well With Voters Who Have Never Heard Him Speak

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney got a rare piece of good news today, as a new poll showed him faring well among voters who have never heard him speak.
According to the poll, which has a margin of error of three points, Mr. Romney garnered positive ratings among voters who agreed with the statement, “I have never seen Mitt Romney say or do anything.”
The poll showed Mr. Romney doing especially well among certain demographic groups, including people who had been trapped in a mine cave-in or who had recently awoken from a coma.
For Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades, the poll results offer “an amazing opportunity” for the campaign: “We have to identify those voters who have never heard Mitt talk and make sure they never do.”

US Totalitarian State Wins After All: Obama Reinstates NDAA Military Detention Provision

a lone appeals judge bowed down to the Obama administration late Monday and reauthorized the White House's ability to indefinitely detain American citizens without charge or due process. On Monday, the US Justice Department asked for an emergency stay on the previous Chris Hedges'-driven order, and hours later US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Judge Raymond Lohier agreed to intervene and place a hold on the injunction. The stay will remain in effect until at least September 28, when a three-judge appeals court panel is expected to begin addressing the issue. It would appear the total fascist takeover of Amerika is drawing nearer by the day.

Paul Craig Roberts: Libya: 'Death to America'


Muslims understand that liberation has costs and were content with Washington’s liberating violence until some idiot in California produced an anti-Islamic film. This film, and not Washington’s predations, set the Muslim world alive with "hate America."

On the symbolic date of September 11, the US ambassador to Libya and some other Washington representatives were assassinated in Libya. According to the Presstitute media, the assassins did not kill the Americans because Washington destroyed their country and left them in chaos. The assassins killed the Americans because of an anti-Islamic film for which the murdered American representatives were not responsible.
This is the way Washington works and thinks. It is not Washington’s slaughter of Muslims and control over their societies and political life that produces blowback. It is independent film-makers in California!

Armada of international naval power massing in the Gulf as Israel prepares an Iran strike

An armada of US and British naval power is massing in the Persian Gulf in the belief that Israel is considering a pre-emptive strike against Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons programme.

The multi-national naval force in the Gulf includes three US Nimitz class carrier groups, each of which has more aircraft than the entire complement of the Iranian air force.
The carriers are supported by at least 12 battleships, including ballistic missile cruisers, frigates, destroyers and assault ships carrying thousand of US Marines and special forces.
The British component consists of four British minesweepers and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary Cardigan Bay, a logistics vessel. HMS Diamond, a brand-new £1billion Type 45 destroyer, one of the most powerful ships in the British fleet, will also be operating in the region.

WWIII Is Coming Soon & Here's Why!?


BILL BONNER: Downside: After the Returns Stop Diminishing

If people are 100% free to produce and to spend as they wish, we can presume they get 100% of what they want. Whether it is good or bad, we don’t know. All we know is that prices reflect the relative values that people give to things and that the economy fully expresses their wants and desires. This is, of course, a fantasy. Nowhere on Earth…no time in history…did such an ideal economy exist. Everywhere, in every epoch, there were restrictions, laws, regulations, theft, subsidies, slavery and other distortions. Still, it is worth keeping in mind this IDEAL ECONOMY. Like an honest man or a virtuous woman, it gives us a standard against which to measure our shortcomings.
If this is true it raises the deepest questions about economic policy. It suggests that there shouldn’t be any


Found this interesting,

Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans. How nice!

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government 

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them.
It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention. 

This will take less than thirty seconds to read.

 If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform... In all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. 

The self-serving must stop.

If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. 

This is one proposal that really should be passed around.
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—In what his campaign described today as a bold strategy to insure victory in the Presidential contest, Republican nominee Mitt Romney will undergo a procedure to have his mouth wired shut until Tuesday, November 6th.
The decision reportedly was made in response to the release earlier in the day of rare video footage showing Mr. Romney saying what he really thinks.
In the video, Mr. Romney blasts the American people for being “insanely obsessed with food, clothing, and shelter,” and asserts that many of them are “too lazy to hide their money overseas.”
At another point in the video, Mr. Romney refers to his own hardscrabble childhood: “I was never handed anything in life. If I wanted to cut a gay kid’s hair off, I had to pin him to the ground myself.”
Romney campaign aides were upbeat about the mouth-wiring procedure today, with some saying they wished they had thought of it months ago.
When asked about the procedure at a campaign stop in Ohio, Mr. Romney said, “Mmmnff ffnn mmfff nnnnnff.”

Obama Gets Foreign-Policy Scolding from Man Who Almost Started War with Britain

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—President Barack Obama received a stern lecture on foreign policy today from a man who almost started a war with Great Britain in July.
“When it comes to dealing with foreign countries, President Obama doesn’t have a clue,” said Mitt Romney, who during a summer visit to London caused the biggest international incident between the United States and Great Britain since the War of 1812. “Only I have what it takes to bring peace to the Middle East.”
Mr. Romney’s statement about his foreign-policy prowess drew an official response from British Prime Minister David Cameron, who in a tersely worded statement, said, “Hah, good one.”
But the G.O.P. nominee pressed on with this theme during several campaign stops today, saying that his trial by fire at the London Olympics had prepared him for foreign-policy challenges ahead.
“Dealing with something as straightforward as the Middle East will be like a day at the beach compared to a volatile tinderbox like England,” he said.
Mr. Romney also laid out his plans for bringing a lasting peace to the Middle East: “Right now, the region is chaos. Entire countries are in uproar, and they are focussing their anger on America. The only way for us to fix that is by attacking Iran.”
In other political news, the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a four-year high, making President Obama the crappiest socialist in history.

It’s Us or the Nukes

There are three barriers to ridding the world of nuclear weapons.  First, our governments don’t represent us and will have to be compelled to act when and if we get our act together.
Second, people imagine we’re safer spreading nukes around the globe by the thousands than we would be eliminating them while a few rogue non-state terrorists hang onto some.  This is crazy, of course.  An arsenal of nukes doesn’t discourage a terrorist.  Nor can it discourage a state any more than can the non-nuclear weapons capable of complete devastation.
Third, people fantasize that there are advantages to nuclear energy that outweigh the problem of its technological vicinity to nuclear weaponry.  There are not.


In The News Today

Dear CIGAs,
What this article really said, if you have the eyes to see it, is that China has a system in place to offset the effect of being shut out of the SWIFT system, the economic nuclear weapon of the West. That proves that the premature threat and use of the SWIFT system against Iran will have rendered this economic weapon useless in the future. The mistake the West made prematurely using the economic weapon, the SWIFT system, will come back to haunt the West as extremely expensive. Had this not been used prematurely, it could have shut down major nation’s economic processes by electronically deleting the enemy from the SWIFT system. Therefore the taking and making of settlement on international transaction would have fallen back on only the gold a nation had. Everyone had gotten lazy so both enemies and friends were settling international transactions on SWIFT. History will see this as the mistake of the century. Now all opposed to each other have or are developing their own electronic payment system free of SWIFT.
Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) provides a network that enables financial institutions worldwide to send and receive information about financial transactions in a secure, standardized and reliable environment. SWIFT also markets software and services to financial institutions, much of it for use on the SWIFTNet Network, and ISO 9362 bank identifier codes (BICs) are popularly known as "SWIFT codes".
The chairman of SWIFT is Yawar Shah, and the CEO is Gottfried Leibbrandt, who is from the Netherlands.
The majority of international interbank messages use the SWIFT network. As of September 2010, SWIFT linked more than 9,000 financial institutions in 209 countries and territories, who were exchanging an average of over 15 million messages per day (compared to an average of 2.4 million daily messages in 1995).[1] SWIFT transports financial messages in a highly secure way but does not hold accounts for its members and does not perform any form of clearing or settlement.

Cowardice Is Destroying America
Because of the cowardice of the government and the people to get tough and throw Wall Street fraud-mongers in jail (or  even to shut off the spigot of never-ending bailouts), our economy has been destroyed.


Weekly Update for 9/15/2012

Germany’s Top Court Gives Green Light
Germany’s top constitutional court, as expected, rejected efforts to block a permanent Eurozone rescue fund.  They dismissed motions that sought to block the European Stability Mechanism but did rule that their contribution of $240 billion could not be increased without legislative approval.  Germany was the last county to ratify the permanent rescue fund which is now schedule to be setup on Oct 8th.  The ESM will increase the overall additional aid capacity to 500 billion euros from the 148 billion euros left in the temporary fund, the European Financial Stability Facility, due to be phased out in mid-2013.
Helicopter Ben Lives Up to His Name
The Federal Reserve gave the markets even more than they were expecting on Wednesday by saying they will not only start a third round of quantitative easing but also that the purchases will be open in nature.  They will buy 40 billion in mortgage debt per month until they see improvements in the economy.  They also said that they expect to keep short term interest rates near zero until 2015.  Share markets rallied around the world with the DOW reaching levels not seen since 2007 and the Nasdaq reaching levels not seen in 12 years.  The metals, oil, and other commodities all rallied as well.  One market that did not rally was US treasuries, the thirty year had its worst week in three years selling off more than 3%.
CPI Rises More Than Expected
The US consumer price index rose .6% in August higher than expected and its biggest monthly increase in three years.  Much of the increase came from higher energy prices, with the core CPI rising just .1% for the month, but the core rate did increase 1.9% year over year which is very close to the Fed’s target inflation rate of 2%.
Market Pressure Easing on Spain But Political Pressure Ramping Up
The Eurozone finance ministers met on Friday to discuss possible financial help for Spain and Greece.  Some of the funding pressure that has been put on Spain by the bond markets has decreased since the ECB announcement of their bond buying program as Spanish 10 year yields have fell to 5.58%.  However, political pressure from the Eurozone toward Spain to apply for aid and except the conditions that come along with the bond buying program has ramped up.
