David Cameron’s Betrayal Of UK Fathers And Their Children

By In 2012 the British government announced plans to introduce “shared parenting” and everyone thought, “Wow, what a breakthrough after all these years of lobbying!” Father’s Rights advocates and advocates for children had worked hard for years to get promises to help fathers from David Cameron’s party to help do more to make sure fathers were allowed to be a part of their children’s lives. When Cameron became Prime Minister, for the first time in 30 years it looked as if fathers would be able to have their children stay with them for several days at a time, i.e. “sleepovers,” and not just snatch a few hours with them during the day.
But then along came two torpedoes.
The first torpedo was that the promised “shared parenting” legislation turned out to be nothing more than the inadequate wording of the toothless 1989 legislation which in the end did nothing to improve fathers’ access to their children.

The Dying US Dollar

Federal Reserve and Wall Street Assassinate US Dollar
By Paul Craig Roberts: Since 2006, the US dollar has experienced a one-quarter to one-third drop in value to the Chinese yuan, depending on the choice of base.  
Now China is going to let the dollar decline further in value.  China also says it is considering undermining the petrodollar by pricing oil futures on the Shanghai Futures Exchange in yuan. This on top of the growing avoidance of the dollar to settle trade imbalances means that the dollar’s role as reserve currency is coming to an end, which means the termination of the US as financial bully and financial imperialist.  This blow to the dollar in addition to the blows delivered by jobs offshoring and the uncovered bets in the gambling casino created by financial deregulation means that the US economy as we knew it is coming to an end.
The US economy is already in shambles, with bond and stock markets propped up by massive and historically unprecedented Fed money printing pouring liquidity into financial asset prices.  This month at the IMF annual conference, former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers said that to achieve full employment in the US economy would require negative real interest rates.  Negative real interest rates could only be achieved by eliminating cash, moving to digital money that can only be kept in banks, and penalizing people for saving.
The future is developing precisely as I have been predicting.
As the dollar enters its death throes, the lawless Federal Reserve and the Wall Street criminals will increase their shorting of gold in the paper futures market, thereby driving the remnants of the West’s gold into Asian hands.

The World's 2170 Billionaires Control $33 Trillion In Net Worth, Double The US GDP

Tyler Durden's picture Before it became a conspiracy fact, the traditional response to all suggestions of a massive Libor/FX/commodity/mortgage rigging cartel was a simple if stupid one: too many people are involved and so it can never be contained. As it turns out not only can it be contained, but when the interests of the "conspiracy" participants are alligned, it can continue for decades. Naturally, the same applies for the pinnacle of the global wealth pyramid: the world's billionaires and their plan of wealth preservation and accumulation.
Not only have the world's richest been the biggest beneficiaries of the monetary and fiscal policies since 2009, with the current 2170 global billionaires representing a 60% increase since 2009 according to UBS, but their consolidated net worth has more than doubled from $3.1 trillion in 2009 to $6.5 trillion now. At the same time, the net worth of the "bottom 90%" of the world's not so lucky population, has declined. Yet, somehow, the Fed is still revered.
Naturally, as in global financial conspiracies, the question arises: is it possible that instead of representing the interests of the general population, what the central banks simply do is follow the instructions of a far smaller cabal, that of the world's uber wealthy?
In case there is any confusion, the above is a rhetorical question.

Switzerland Prepares To Vote On An Incredibly Radical Plan To Fight Inequality

By On Sunday afternoon we will find out if Switzerland will go ahead with one of the most radical plans to fight inequality ever: Limiting the monthly pay of top executives to that of their lowest paid employees' yearly salary.
Limiting compensation to 1:12 would be a historic change: Currently, a lot of Swiss firms have a ratio of more than 100:1. Roche, the Swiss drug giant, reportedly paid its top executive $13.9 million in 2012, and its lowest $59,000 — a ratio of 1:236.
This isn't just a Swiss thing either. One study has shown that the average American CEO earns 200 times the salary of their lowest paid employee.
The idea was proposed through Switzerland's direct democracy system, and if more than 50% of voters and representatives of the Swiss federal states (cantons) agree to it, it must become law. Voters have had a month to vote via post, and on Sunday they can attend polling stations.
It's fascinating to wonder what a country with a 1:12 salary cap would look like. David Roth, the leader of the youth wing of Swiss party the Social Democrats, and one of the architects of the plan, recently told Business Insider that he expected that salaries would go down, and then the money would be spent on lower paid workers and investing in the companies. On the other hand, however, Swiss executives had warned that their companies would leave the country if the bill passed (Roth said that such an attitude was "quite arrogant").

Apartheid Israel Behind Kennedy's Assassination: Mark Glenn

UK BANNED Press TV: American political commentator Mark Glenn says Israel was behind the assassination of then US President John F. Kennedy fifty years ago.

The strong circumstantial evidence points to Israel being the culprit in there of course even the fact that the Israeli lobby has such luck not only on Congress and on the executive branch of the US government but as well within the intelligence services,” Glenn told Press TV on Friday.

“It’s easy to see then why there would be very powerful, very interested parties here who want to make sure that the American people never find out about this particular aspect of President Kennedy’s foreign policy objectives,” he explained.

Bitcoins in Space

Author Image for Richard BransonBy : Virgin Galactic is one of the universe’s most exciting, futuristic companies. Bitcoin, the virtual currency, has really captured the imagination recently as one of the world’s most innovative businesses looking to the future. So we think it is about time Virgin Galactic customers can choose to pay with bitcoins.

One future astronaut, a female flight attendant from Hawaii, has already purchased her Virgin Galactic ticket using bitcoins, and we expect many more to follow in her footsteps. All of our future astronauts are pioneers in their own right, and this is one more way to be forward-thinking.

Two years ago, one bitcoin was valued at less than $10. Earlier this week  one bitcoin’s value reached $900, tripling in the past month, and a US Senate committee hearing deemed it a legitimate financial service.

I have invested in some bitcoins myself, and find it fascinating how a whole new global currency has been created. For people who can afford to invest a little in bitcoins, it’s worth looking into. Many people and organisations are - today a Cyprus university is allowing students to pay their tuition fees with bitcoins.
