Global Internet censorship is here. SOPA and PIPA have been stopped (at least for now) in the United States, but a treaty known as ACTA (the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) is far worse than either of them. ACTA was quietly signed by Barack Obama back on October 1st, 2011 and most Americans have never even heard of it.This new treaty gives foreign governments and copyright owners incredibly broad powers. If you are alleged to have violated a copyright, your website can be shut down without a trial and police may even show up at your door to take you to prison. It doesn't even have to be someone in the United States that is accusing you.It could just be a foreign government or a copyright owner halfway across the world that alleges that you have violated a copyright. It doesn't matter. So far, the U.S., the EU and seven other nations have signed on to ACTA, and the number of participants is expected to continue to grow. The "powers that be" are obsessed with getting Internet censorship one way or another. The open and free Internet that you and I have been enjoying for all these years is about to change, and not for the better.
Russia Today reports;
India has reportedly agreed to pay Tehran in gold for the oil it buys, in a move aimed at protecting Delhi from US-sanctions targeting countries who trade with Iran. China, another buyer of Iranian oil, may follow Delhi’s lead.
The report, by the Israeli-based news website DEBKAfile, states that Iran and India are negotiating backup alternatives with China and Russia, should the US and EU find a way to block the gold payment mechanism.So what does all this mean? It means that the reality of trade deficits are (finally) manifesting in the destruction and rejection of the unit of exchange. In layman’s: The chickens coming home to roost, so to speak.
Simply put; the goods and services represented by the total number of outstanding United States Dollars is far disproportionate to what exists in the real world. We simply do not make enough actual goods that foreigners with reserves can purchase.
More productive economies such as India, Russia, China and Japan are dissatisfied with the value that their US Dollar holdings represent and therefore are trying to diversify out of the US debt market without destroying the value that their holdings still have.What we are witnessing are the first quantifiable steps to the end of the US Dollar hegemony around the world.For Americans, eventually this will manifest in the destruction of your currency because the only people willing to take US Dollars will be those who are forced to do so by law – which would be US citizens and US businesses.
On the Thursday evening edition of Infowars Nightly News, Alex Jones featured photo evidence of a FEMA rendition facility located at the airport in Los Angeles.
The photos and an interview with an eyewitness who described the facility and its inward facing barbed wire fence and one-way turnstiles add more compelling evidence to the indisputable fact thatFEMA operates as a modern version of the Gestapo.
