Another Snake Oil Seller Pops Up - It's Failing All Over the Show – So Let's Do More of It!

: The insanity that has gripped policymakers all over the world really is a sight to see. There was a time when central bankers were extremely careful not to do anything that might endanger the currency's value too much – in other words, they were intent on boiling the frog slowly. And why wouldn't they? After all, the amount by which the citizenry is  plucked via depreciation of the currency every year is compounding, so that the men behind the curtain extract more than enough over time. That they thereby retard economic progress by decades over time as well is not something anyone would notice after all, since we cannot engage in a controlled experiment that proves it to all and sundry beyond doubt. We only know that it is so if we employ sound economic theory. Since sound economic theory is by its nature not statist, it is not employed by the mainstream, and so most citizens are successfully shielded from the truth.  
turner_1367473cThe latest example for the growing chutzpa of these snake-oil sellers is provided by Lord Adair Turner in the UK. To give you a little bit of background: the UK is about to fall into its third recession in a row (a 'triple dip', something that has never before happened) not in spite, but because the Bank of England has monetized a cool quarter of all outstanding gilts, which has allowed the zombie TBTF banks to remain on artificial life support.

However, that is not Turner's conclusion. The policy is evidently failing, so he naturally concludes that there should not only be more of it, but it should become more brazen by veering off into the 'Weimaresque'. After all, we will be able to stop in time, right? We just need a 'little bit of it'. Although Turner for some reason also thinks it is 'not appropriate for the UK' (why not? The UK for some reason 'does not respond to demand and price signals', which would really be a first in economic history…where do they find these people?), he thinks everybody else should do it.

The Birth of a Scandal - Max Keiser talks to John Butler

Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the Wall Street schmatas now warning of bondpocalypse as bonds now considered 'risky' investment. They also discuss both George Osborne's electric fence of new financial regulatory powers which are same as the old powers that have never actually been used against the too big to fail banks and the London lawyers suggesting that the level of manipulation of Libor was so great that contracts tied to the rate should be considered null and void. In the second half of the show, Max Keiser talks to John Butler, Chief Investment Officer at Amphora Capital, about the bond market, currency vigilantes and the not very hidden inflation. Source

CIA using Saudi base for drone assassinations in Yemen, location withheld by shill media

Madison Ruppert: While the use of a base to launch drone strikes in Yemen has been reported in the past, it has been revealed that the exact location of the base was withheld by various news outlets at the request of the Obama administration.
This comes as a Justice Department Bywhite paper describing the supposed legal justification for drone strikes was leaked and the Obama administration will reportedly hand over the classified legal memo justifying the drone killing program to the House and Senate intelligence committees, the same memo recently kept secret by a federal judge.
One must also keep in mind that a new drone base is reportedly slated to open in Niger to facilitate drone attacks in Africa.
The Washington Post reported that they did not reveal the specific location of the drone base used to conduct drone strikes in Yemen – which continue at a disturbing rate this year – at the request of the Obama administration.
The administration “cited concern that exposing the facility would undermine operations against an al-Qaeda affiliate regarded as the network’s most potent threat to the United States, as well as potentially damage counterterrorism collaboration with Saudi Arabia,”

Orwellian USA: EFF asks appeals court to reconsider allowing video surveillance in private homes without a warrant

Madison Ruppert: The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has filed a new amicus brief in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals asking the court to reconsider a finding allowing people to enter private homes and conduct warrantless video surveillance.
While a decision like that might seem totally insane to some readers of End the Lie, it should be noted that federal Judge William Griesbach, the chief judge in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin, ruled that federal agents can enter private property without permission and place hidden surveillance cameras without a warrant.
Yet this case is radically different as it involves U.S. Fish and Wildlife agents investigating Ricky Wahchumwah for the crime of selling bald eagle and gold eagle feathers, a federal crime.
An undercover agent went to Wahchumwah’s home pretending to be interested in purchasing feathers while secretly recording the details of his home with a tiny video camera hidden in his clothes – all without a warrant.


Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” Aldous Huxley

I woke up this past Saturday morning and opened my local paper to find out that all was well. An Associated Press article declared a healthy jobs market, fantastic auto sales, a surging housing market, and a stock market rocketing to new all-time highs. What’s not to love? If the mainstream media says the economy is as good as new, it must be so. Why should we let facts get in the way of a good storyline? The stock market has surged to 2007 highs, so the country’s employment situation must be strong.

The chart above tells a slightly different story.
