(Infowars) – Via news outlet the Global Times, the Chinese State laments the “issue of unauthorized births” in light of the UN’s stated goal of “efficient population control.”

The UN’s World population Day, July 11, was originally set up in 1989 by the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programma to “raise awareness of global population issues.”

“The theme of this year’s 21st World Population Day”, mentions the article, “is “Everyone Counts”, and the activities in China will focus on the 2010 population census and emphasize the right to life.”

“In China”, the article goes on to say, “the issue of unauthorized births is at the forefront of its efforts to control the growth of its population as it undermines the country’s family planning policy, or “one-child policy”, which was implemented in 1980.” Continue reading

Through the Wormhole: The Secret State’s Mad Scheme to Control the Internet – Tom Burghardt

(AntiFascistCalling) – Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz once famously wrote that “war is the continuation of politics by other means.” A century later, radical French philosopher Michel Foucault turned Clausewitz on his head and declared that “politics is the continuation of war by other means.”

In our topsy-turvy world where truth and lies coexist equally and sociopathic business elites reign supreme, it would hardly be a stretch to theorize that cyber war is the continuation of parapolitical crime by other means. Continue reading

World War

(LewRockwellBlog) – Whom Will Obama Bomb?

According to the latest CNN opinion poll, only 19% of the booboisie like the idea of Obama’s Soviet-style nationalization of the health care industry. The Democrats spat on the Constitution, as they always do, and shoved the thing down our throats. A lot of people are mighty, mighty pi__ed off at this, and will undoubtedly vent by voting a lot of Democrats out of office in November.

So what can we expect the Marxist in the White House to do to prevent a GOP takeover of Congress? Don’t rule out the most tried and true tactic of all — war. The booboisie always rally around the prez when the bombs are dropping from the sky, even if they’re falling on innocent foreign civilians.

Impeachment Time: Obama Grants Eminent Domain Rights to China to Secure Debt

FLASHBACK – (February 27, 2009) – UPDATED BELOW:

(Examiner) – The time for partisan bickering just ended.  This is as serious as a heart attack.  Obama is going to spend so much money, which he intends to get from China via the sale of government backed bonds, that the Chinese apparently don’t think he’ll be able to make good on them.

So President Obama gave the Chinese eminent domain rights to American land and businesses as collateral – i.e. we don’t pay, they now own America. Continue reading

The unemployment rate is projected to come down quite slowly after that, averaging 8.2 percent in 2012, when Obama will be up for reelection. Continue reading

The Dumping Begins: Chinese Reserve Managers Notified That Any Non-USG Guaranteed Securities Must Be Divested

(ZeroHedge) – It appears that this time China’s posturing is for real. Following up on our earlier post that Chinese military officials want to “punish” America by selling Treasuries, Asia Times Online is reporting that an explicit directive by the Chinese government has notified reserve managers to sell all risky US assets, including asset backed and corporates, and just hold on to explicitly guaranteed Treasuries and Agency debt. And from following TIC data we know that China’s enthusiasm for MBS/Agencies over the past year has been matched solely by that of one Bill Gross. Continue reading

The Value of Government Surveillance of Citizens

(C4L) – It’s amusing to watch U.S. officials protest the Chinese government’s surveillance of its own citizens. After all, isn’t it the U.S. government that secretly and illegally conspired with private telecom companies to record telephone conversations of private American citizens? And isn’t it the U.S. government that secured both civil and criminal immunity for the telecoms’ decision to sell out the privacy of their customers to the feds? Continue reading

China pulls financial plug on Western debt

“This year we will continue to control the pace and demand of the credit supply,” Mr. Liu said at a conference in Hong Kong. All banks, he added, had been ordered to “heighten their vigilance against an impossible, embedded credit risk.”
For about a year now, China has been giving signs and exerting influence on world markets and political circles that they would be ending their massive purchases of Federal Reserve bonds (also known as buying US government debt bonds) to which they know the US will never repay. It is looking more and more like the predictions by many have been right a long time; that is that China’s revaluation of their currency and the cessation of spending on financing debts abroad for countries unlikely to pay them back will cause “financial tsunami” around the world.
