refroidissement climatique:

 

Coldest and dullest March since the 1960s


The latest statistics from the Met Office showed that from March 1 to 26 the UK mean temperature was 2.5C (36.5F), well below average.
It makes it the coldest March since 1962, when the average was just 1.9C (35.4C) and the joint fourth coldest since records began, alongside 1917 when it was also 2.5C (36.5F).
So far there have been just 59 hours of sunshine, making it one of the dullest starts to spring on a par with 1964 when there was just 64 hours for the whole month.
Dave Britton, of the Met Office, said the cold weather is due to last.

 

March is the cruelest month ... this year


It is likely that you think of the month of March as a time to soak up the rejuvenating sun rather than a month to battle the unforgiving eastern wind. And you would be right. DMI, the Danish meteorological institution, said that when it comes to the difference between this March and the last, it “has never seen anything like this.”
Around this time last year, day temperatures were around the 15°C mark, with an average for the entire month of 5.7°C. March 2013, however, has only produced a measly average temperature of -1°C. That makes this month the coldest March since 1987.

 

Shivering Start to April: Another Cold Blast


Overall, temperatures will be 10 to 25 degrees below average across the majority of the Midwest states

 

Spring snowstorm in U.S. breaks records


A spring snowstorm broke records for many cities in the Midwest and eastern United States, meteorologists say.
In St. Louis, the storm dumped 12.4 inches Sunday, breaking both the record accumulation for March 24 and the snowfall for any day in March, AccuWeather.com said. The previous record was 12.1 inches, set 101 years ago.

 

Twenty-year hiatus in rising temperatures has climate scientists puzzled

Graham Lloyd, Environment Editor

  March 30, 2013

DEBATE about the reality of a two-decade pause in global warming and what it means has made its way from the sceptical fringe to the mainstream.
In a lengthy article this week, The Economist magazine said if climate scientists were credit-rating agencies, then climate sensitivity - the way climate reacts to changes in carbon-dioxide levels - would be on negative watch but not yet downgraded.
Another paper published by leading climate scientist James Hansen, the head of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, says the lower than expected temperature rise between 2000 and the present could be explained by increased emissions from burning coal.
For Hansen the pause is a fact, but it's good news that probably won't last.
International Panel on Climate Change chairman Rajendra Pachauri recently told The Weekend Australian the hiatus would have to last 30 to 40 years "at least" to break the long-term warming trend.
But the fact that global surface temperatures have not followed the expected global warming pattern is now widely accepted.
Research by Ed Hawkins of University of Reading shows surface temperatures since 2005 are already at the low end of the range projections derived from 20 climate models and if they remain flat, they will fall outside the models' range within a few years.
"The global temperature standstill shows that climate models are diverging from observations," says David Whitehouse of the Global Warming Policy Foundation.
"If we have not passed it already, we are on the threshold of global observations becoming incompatible with the consensus theory of climate change," he says.
Whitehouse argues that whatever has happened to make temperatures remain constant requires an explanation because the pause in temperature rise has occurred despite a sharp increase in global carbon emissions.
The Economist says the world has added roughly 100 billion tonnes of carbon to the atmosphere between 2000 and 2010, about one-quarter of all the carbon dioxide put there by humans since 1750. This mismatch between rising greenhouse gas emissions and not-rising temperatures is among the biggest puzzles in climate science just now, The Economist article says.
"But it does not mean global warming is a delusion."

 

Government's climate watchdog launches astonishing attack on the Mail on Sunday... for revealing global warming science is wrong

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2301757/Governments-climate-watchdog-launches-astonishing-attack-Mail-Sunday--revealing-global-warming-science-wrong.html
The official watchdog that advises the Government on greenhouse gas emissions targets has launched an astonishing attack on The Mail on Sunday – for accurately reporting that alarming predictions of global warming are wrong.
We disclosed that although highly influential computer models are still estimating huge rises in world temperatures, there has been no statistically significant increase for more than 16 years.
Despite our revelation earlier this month, backed up by a scientifically researched graph, the Committee on Climate Change still clings to flawed predictions.
All a con? The Mail on Sunday revealed some of the science behind the scare tactics for Global warming were miscalculated - and now they are being attacking for pointing out the truth
Leading the attack is committee member Sir Brian Hoskins, who is also director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change at Imperial College, London. In a blog on the Committee on Climate Change’s website, Sir Brian insisted: ‘The scientific basis for significant long-term climate risks remains robust, despite the points raised .  .  . Early and deep cuts in emissions are still required.’
He also claimed our report ‘misunderstood’ the value of computer models. Yet in an interview three years ago, Sir Brian conceded that when he started out as a climate scientist, the models were ‘pretty lousy, and they’re still pretty lousy, really’.
Our graph earlier this month was reproduced from a version first drawn by Dr Ed Hawkins, of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science. Last week it was reprinted as part of a four-page report in The Economist.
The accuracy of computer forecasts is vital because they influence politicians and their key environmental advisers on how urgently to act on climate change – and how many billions of pounds they take from the taxpayer in ‘green’ levies.
How the MoS reported the faulty forecast
The Committee on Climate Change claims such forecasts must be right because world temperatures have previously matched computer models’ ‘outputs’ for most of the past 60 years. Yet as this newspaper pointed out, for almost all of that 60-year period the models were not making predictions – because they did not yet exist.

 

Scientist predicts earth is heading for another Ice Age

http://www.express.co.uk/news/science-technology/387971/Scientist-predicts-earth-is-heading-for-another-Ice-Age
AS Arctic Britain prepares to shiver for at least another month, a leading scientist today predicted the world was heading for another Ice Age.

As if the outlook wasn’t bleak enough already, meteorologists believe the shivering start to 2013 has been the coldest in more than 200 years.

More worryingly, the combination of sub-zero temperatures and heavy snow experienced across much of the country recently could be the prelude to a new Ice Age that will begin next year and last for 200 years.

Russian scientist Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov, of the St Petersburg Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory, painted the Doomsday scenario saying the recent inclement weather simply proved we were heading towards a frozen planet.

 

Carbon levy will be a 'stealth poll tax' on energy


The Treasury’s “carbon price floor” comes into effect on Monday and official estimates say it will add £5 to household bills this year, rising to about £50 by 2020.
The tax is intended to provide an incentive to invest in new wind farms and nuclear plants by making it more expensive to run coal and gas plants that emit carbon.
Tony Cocker, chief executive of E.ON UK, attacked the policy on the eve of its implementation, arguing that it simply “pushes up the price for electricity” and should be scrapped.
He told The Sunday Telegraph: “The carbon price floor is a tax and it’s pretty close to a stealth poll tax. It’s not based on ability to pay, it’s based on the requirement to keep warm and light your house.
“It was put in place with the stated objective of encouraging investment in low-carbon energy but it certainly doesn’t achieve that objective – it’s just a tax for the Exchequer.”

 

IMF Proposes $1.40 a Gallon Gas Tax on US Drivers

FOX NEWS- The national average for a gallon of gasoline is currently at $3.65. On top of that sky-high price, the International Monetary Fund has now proposed that the U.S. should impose a tax of $1.40 per gallon in order to pay for social programs around the world and help the environment.

 

Fracking 'linked to biggest Oklahoma earthquake'

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21952428
Scientists have linked wastewater injection from hydraulic fracturing to a magnitude-5.7 earthquake that struck the US state of Oklahoma in 2011.
Fracking, as it is known, injects water and chemicals into petroleum wells in a bid to extract trapped natural gas.
Opponents of the practice say that it risks causing seismic events and contaminating groundwater.
The study in Geology shows that "induced seismicity" can occur years after wastewater injection begins.

 

The largest DDoS attack didn't break the internet, but it did try


A 300Gbps distributed denial-of-service attack thought to be the largest in the world has put key internet infrastructure to the test, and, so far, the attack has failed.
CloudFlare has claimed to have mitigated the biggest distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack in the history of the internet.
Spamhaus, a not-for-profit anti-spam organisation, came to CloudFlare last week for assistance against a large DDoS attack it was experiencing. Switching over to CloudFlare's network on March 19, the attack began with a 10Gbps flood of traffic, ramping up in excess of 100Gbps later that night. It initially took Spamhaus' website down, with the outage independently observed by the Internet Storm Center at the time.
According to CloudFlare, the majority of the attack was traffic sent using a technique called DNS (domain name system) reflection. Under normal circumstances, DNS resolvers wait for a user request, such as a lookup for the IP address for a domain name, then respond accordingly.

 

Ban: UN Needs Tens of Thousands of Troops for Mali War


Ever since French troops invaded Mali, the French government has been hoping to pawn the long-term occupation off on the United Nations. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon seems on board with that request, however, and has issued a report on the tens of thousands of troops he believes the UN needs for its war.
His recommendations include 11,200 troops as a bare minimum to control and protect certain “main” towns that are perceived to have the highest risk. He then calls for a “parallel force” at least as big to continue the offensive war against northern rebels.
Unflipping believable, and all about the control of Mali's gold; who gets to control its production; and who can buy it, ultimately.

When Mali's gold runs out, France and the UN will abandon Mali like parasites abandon a dead host.

 

 

 

Moyen-Orient:

 

Israel Defence Forces planning for confrontation with Egypt


Israel Today newspaper has prepared a special report on the Arab armies in the Middle East; its title is telling; “Long Arm in the Region” is a reference to the Israel Defence Forces. It is claimed that the IDF is planning for a confrontation with Egypt.
I was kind of wondering how much of the current unrest we are seeing in Egypt recently has been has been foreign-generated; now, we know, and it appears that Israel has definitely been acting here for some time to "soften up" the Morsi regime with unrest before going in for the military "kill" in order to acheive regime change with a government that will be far more in Israel's corner.

 

Egypt: Naval forces capture 3 scuba divers trying to sabotage undersea Internet cable


Egypt's military spokesman says the country's naval forces have captured three scuba divers who were trying to sabotage an undersea Internet cable in the Mediterranean, while telecommunications executives blamed a weeklong Internet slowdown on damage caused to another cable by a ship.
Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali says in an announcement on his official Facebook page on Wednesday that divers were arrested while "cutting the undersea cable" of the country's main communications company, Telecom Egypt. The statement said they were on a boat. It did not further have details on who they were.
Like we can't figure it out?

 

Confirmed: US shipping weapons to Syria; Al Nusra’s ‘mystery’ sponsors revealed


Press TV – by Tony Cartalucci
While US President Barack Obama and the Western media lied in concert to the world regarding America’s role in supporting terrorists operating in Syria, it is now revealed that the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been shipping weapons to Syria via NATO-member Turkey and Jordan since at least early 2012.
The New York Times in their article titled, “Arms Airlift to Syria Rebels Expands, With C.I.A. Aid,” admits that:
With help from the C.I.A., Arab governments and Turkey have sharply increased their military aid to Syria’s opposition fighters in recent months, expanding a secret airlift of arms and equipment for the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad, according to air traffic data, interviews with officials in several countries and the accounts of rebel commanders.
The airlift, which began on a small scale in early 2012 and continued intermittently through last fall, expanded into a steady and much heavier flow late last year, the data shows. It has grown to include more than 160 military cargo flights by Jordanian, Saudi and Qatari military-style cargo planes landing at Esenboga Airport near Ankara, and, to a lesser degree, at other Turkish and Jordanian airports.
The New York Times piece attempts to spin America’s role in arming militants in Syria. The Times continues by stating:
The American government became involved, the former American official said, in part because there was a sense that other states would arm the rebels anyhow. The C.I.A. role in facilitating the shipments, he said, gave the United States a degree of influence over the process, including trying to steer weapons away from Islamist groups and persuading donors to withhold portable antiaircraft missiles that might be used in future terrorist attacks on civilian aircraft.
This is categorically false. Already, in 2007, US officials had divulged plans to destroy Syria by arming sectarian extremists, using Saudi Arabia and other regional actors as proxies to launder US and Israel support through – maintaining a degree of credibility amongst the terrorist receiving the aid, as well as a degree of plausible deniability for Washington and Tel Aviv politically. In Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh’s 2007 New Yorker article, “The Redirection: Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” the strategy was described as follows:

 

Salafists not Assad, apparently behind reported chemical attack in Syria

Numerous witnesses of the Aleppo “chemical weapon” attack mentioned the smell of chlorine. This looks increasingly to be a chlorine gas bombing similar to those conducted by salafist militants in Iraq in and around 2007. Here’s a NYT article on one of them: 

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/17/world/middleeast/17cnd-iraq.html


These are the same salafist jihadists who are flooding the Syrian borders from Iraq, Libya and every other salafist hellhole – backed fully by the US, UK and France – and paid for by the Saudis and Qataris.
It is no wonder the UK and France were pushing back against a UN investigation of the attack this week.
The Telegraph reports that the military source who spoke to Channel 4 News confirmed that artillery reports from the Syrian Army suggest a small rocket was fired from the vicinity of Al-Bab, a district close to Aleppo that is controlled by Jabhat al-Nusra – a jihadist group said to be linked with al-Qaeda and deemed a “terrorist organization” by the US.
The American and independent weapons analysts do not believe that the regime or rebels used advanced chemical weapons last week, after studying initial intelligence reports and video coverage of survivors on state-run television.
However, they suspect that the victims were deliberately exposed to a “caustic” agent such as chlorine. This does not count as a chemical weapon, under terms laid down by international treaties, but as an improvised chemical device would represent a major escalation in the conflict.
Satellite intelligence analyzed in Washington does not indicate a major missile launch at the time of the alleged attack, but officials said there could have been a “creative use” of a caustic agent.
CL17 is normal chlorine for swimming pools or industrial purposes. It is rated as Level 2 under the chemical weapons convention, which means it is dual purpose – it can be used as a weapon as well as for industrial or domestic purposes. Level 1 agents are chemicals whose sole use is as weapons, such as the nerve agents sarin or tabun.
There has been extensive experimentation by insurgents in Iraq in the use of chlorine, which is harmful when mixed with water to form hydrochloric acid. It vaporizes quickly, meaning that in a big explosion it will evaporate; in a small blast – for instance, one delivered by a home-made rocket – it will turn into airborne droplets before dispersing quickly.
So it is likely only to produce limited casualties. In this case there were 26 fatalities, far fewer than would be expected from a full chemical weapon attack.

Israeli air ops underline Syria jitters

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/Special/2013/03/27/Israeli-air-ops-underline-Syria-jitters/UPI-98911364417744/
Israel is getting increasingly jumpy as Syrian rebels, particularly the increasingly effective Islamists, steadily throttle the beleaguered Damascus regime.
Unusually heavy air force activity over Lebanon in recent days is raising suspicions Israel’s preparing for airstrikes to ensure the Jewish state’s security as Islamists advance into southern Syria close to the occupied zone in the Golan Heights.
U.N. peacekeeping sources in Lebanon say the Israelis have doubled their violations of Lebanese airspace this year compared to the equivalent period in 2012.
Israel began overflying Lebanon in May 2000 when its troops fled the border zone they had occupied since 1978. These flights, illegal under international law, have been primarily engaged in intelligence-gathering.
Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet that Israel is planning to strike both Syria and Lebanon, and sooner rather than later.
In the case of Syria, this will be about carving out more territory beyond the Golan Heights Le plateau du Golan ; in Lebanon, it will be to "neutralize" Hezbollah ahead of a military strike against Iran.

 

Israel tente de faire croire que des médias arabes ont  sorti le scoop de la mort d'Assad.
Aucun médias arabe n'a rapporté la fausse nouvelle!
http://www.globalresearch.ca/rumors-of-assads-assassination-are-greatly-exaggerated/5328352
(...)
We have a right wing blogger in Washington referring us to a French news service specializing in Israeli diplomatic news, JSS, which announces the attack on Assad and then gives a source that implies it’s the “Arab media” – eltira.org. But it turns out the organization is registered in Israel. The unambiguous “Arab news” source, Al Arab, has similar problems regarding Arab authenticity. While the page is written in Arabic, the administrative contact is in Israel with the Alarab.net web site associated with a top Israel internet company.
Here’s how the story is reported in the Israeli media after all that massaging by Israeli focused or owned publications, we get the official story in the Israeli media (or maybe that’s fringe media).


Assad. Is assassinated by a bodyguard? [Photo: AP]
“Arab media reported the assassination of Syrian President Bashar Assad. On – reportedly not yet been validated and have not yet received echo Western media, Assad [was] fired [on by]one of his bodyguards.
“This is an Iranian officer named Mehdi Jacoby, who was attached to Assad on – by allies of the Syrian president in Tehran.
“Various reports published that Assad al-Shami was rushed to the hospital and in serious condition. Also reported the big fuss that has developed around the hospital and that all roads leading to the hospital were blocked – by the Syrian army. Also reported large military forces are in the hospital.”

And yes, it is another fake. The blurred edge along the throat where they copied the belly blood stain to hide the seam, and the discontinuities where the yellow was filled in where the head lies give it away, as well as the intentional blurring to try to hide the artifacts.

‘Harroun exposed what US is doing in Syria’


Eric Harroun, an ex-soldier, has been charged in the U.S. with using a weapon in Syria against Syrian government forces. An American activist says Harroun is being prosecuted not because of his terrorist acts but because he has exposed what the United States is doing in Syria.
Eric Harroun, 30, served in the U.S. Army from 2000-2003, and allegedly fought in Syria with the al-Nusra Front, which is deemed a terrorist group by the U.S. as an alias of al-Qaeda in Iraq.
“The case of Harroun is perhaps unusual not only because he’s being prosecuted. But he apparently, according to the New York Times, had been posting reports about his time in Syria on Facebook and Youtube. So it may be that his real crime isn’t doing what is U.S. policy, which is conducting a terrorist war against the Syrian government, but rather that he blabbed about it and betrayed States’ secrets," Don DeBar, activist and radio host, told the U.S. Desk on Saturday.

 

Putin orders large-scale military exercises in Black Sea

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/03/28/us-russia-military-exercises-idUSBRE92R0A520130328
President Vladimir Putin ordered the launch of large-scale Russian military exercises in the Black Sea region on Thursday, his spokesman said, in a move that may create tensions with Russia's post-Soviet neighbors Ukraine and Georgia.
Putin issued the order to start the previously unannounced maneuvers at 4 a.m. Moscow time (12.00 a.m. EDT) as he flew back from an international summit in South Africa, his spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters by telephone.
"These are large-scale unannounced test exercises," Peskov said, adding that 36 warships and an unspecified number of warplanes would take part. "The main goal is to check the readiness and cohesion of the various units."
He did not say how long the exercises would last.
It appears that these exercises are meant to practice the seizure of the Bosporus Straits in order to project Russian power beyond the Black Sea, should Syria come under an overt attack from the West.

 

Ex-CNN Reporter: I Received Orders to Manipulate News to Demonize Syria and Iran

PRAGUE, (SANA)-

DHS To Buy 360,000 More Rounds of Hollow Point Ammunition


While the Department of Homeland Security continues to ignore members of Congress demanding to know why the federal agency is engaged in an apparent arms build-up, the DHS has just announced it plans to purchase another 360,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition to add to the roughly 2 billion bullets already bought over the past year.
The DHS has now purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammo.
A solicitation on the Federal Business Opportunities website details the DHS’ plan to purchase 360,000 rounds of “Commercial leaded training ammo (CLTA) Pistol .40 caliber 165 grain, jacketed hollow point.” The bullets are to be delivered to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, the same destination for 240,000 hollow point rounds which were purchased only last month.

 

Report: DHS Attempting to “Control How Much Ammo is Available On the Commercial Market”


Last year, when the state of Illinois attempted to follow New Jersey by making it difficult and more expensive to acquire ammunition, we warned that new government initiatives would be used to try and circumvent the Second Amendment. Rather than targeting firearms directly, lawmakers and government security officials began looking to ammunition as a sure-fire way to disarm Americans.
While it may have been hard to believe then, given the current shortages of ammunition throughout the United States, one can’t ignore the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has been actively pursuing such a strategy.
“The Department of Homeland Security’s huge ammo purchases were an attempt to dry up supplies as part of an end run around the second amendment,” writes Paul Joseph Watson of the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition purchased by the Department of Homeland Security.

As Cyprus Delays Reopening Banks Again, Here Are The Longest Bank Closures Ever - Zerohedge


We thought it useful to consider Cyprus in relation to the longest bank closures in history. Cyprus has now shutdown its banking system longer than Argentina, Ecuador, and Uruguay and as far as President Anastasiades comments that capital controls are temporary - we can only hope for the depositors sake - that it's not as temporary as Argentina's 120 month 'restrictions' starting in 2001.

 

Cyprus Banks Finally Reopen But Anger Lingers


Queues grew outside branches across the country, with no signs of panic as employees limited the number of customers allowed in at any one time.
But many residents expressed anger at the country’s controversial bailout – which requires Cyprus to raise 5.8bn euros (£4.9bn).
“They have stolen our money,” Milton Loucas told Sky News.
“I have been working for 60 years. I am 80 years old. I cannot work again for my living – they have cut the lot.
“Our money, our social insurance – they have cut them. How are we going to live?”

 

Bankster squad: What’s happening in Cyprus has struck terror into the hearts of all who live under the unaccountable rule of politician-bankers


So the European Union’s masters of the universe refused to help, unless Cyprus agreed to a shocking condition: They demanded Cyprus’ banks literally seize 10% of all of their customers’ money and use that to prop themselves up.
That is normally called theft. But in this case, it was the EU government pressuring Cyprus to do it.
Anyone and everyone who had money in a Cyprus bank account would have had 10% of their savings — 10% of their children’s college fund, 10% of their retirement nest egg, 10% of their life savings — just taken. They called it a “tax.”
It was a shock. There was a run on the banks, so the government closed the banks for a week to stop it, permitting Cypriots to withdraw just $130 a day from ATMs.

 

New malware goes directly to US ATMs and cash registers for card info


While many consumers already take precautions when shopping online, they may need to start being even more careful - as a new report shows malware is focusing on physical registers and ATMs compromised by attackers looking to harvest card data.
Research conducted by the Russian-based security company Group-IB recently discovered malware called “Dump Memory Grabber,” which it believes has already been used to steal debit and credit card information from customers using major US banks including Chase, Citibank and Capital One, Security Weekly reports.
The malicious code is evidently being installed directly into point-of-sale (POS) hardware (meaning registers or kiosks) and ATMs, and transmitting the harvested information straight out of the magnetic stripes on credit and debit cards - which includes everything from account numbers, to first and last names and expiration dates.

 

Video-Jim Rogers on CNBC 3/28/13 - "Get your money out of the Banks, they are going to loot it". WOW - CNBC agreed.


Video of Jim Rogers on CNBC this morning 3/28/13: "If politicians say don't worry, then understand you have to worry and they will loot your bank account. Run for the hills and hurry to get your money out" IMF condoning stealing of people's money. He says don't trust any politician, if you do, you will go bankrupt quickly. Amazing the CNBC reporter agreed with him.
Short to the point segment. Get your money out of the banks!

 

Cyprus-Style Bank Account Confiscation Is In The New 2013 Canadian Government Budget!

The politicians of the western world are coming after your bank accounts.  In fact, Cyprus-style bank account confiscation is actually in the new Canadian government budget.  When I first heard about this I was quite skeptical, so I went and looked it up for myself.  And guess what?  It is right there in black and white on pages 144 and 145 of “Economic Action Plan 2013? which the Harper government has already submitted to the House of Commons.  This new budget actually proposes “to implement a ‘bail-in’ regime for systemically important banks” in Canada.  “Economic Action Plan 2013? was submitted on March 21st, which means that this “bail-in regime” was likely being planned long before the crisis in Cyprus ever erupted.  So exactly what in the world is going on here?  In addition, as you will see below, it is being reported that the European Parliament will soon be voting on a law which would require that large banks be “bailed in” when they fail.  In other words, that new law would make Cyprus-style bank account confiscation the law of the land for the entire EU.  I can’t even begin to describe how serious all of this is.  From now on, when major banks fail they are going to bail them out by grabbing the money that is in your bank accounts.  This is going to absolutely shatter faith in the banking system and it is actually going to make it far more likely that we will see major bank failures all over the western world.
What you are about to see absolutely amazed me when I first saw it.  The Canadian government is actually proposing that what just happened in Cyprus should be used as a blueprint for future bank failures up in Canada.
The following comes from pages 144 and 145 of “Economic Action Plan 2013? which you can find right here.  Apparently the goal is to find a way to rescue “systemically important banks” without the use of taxpayer funds…

“The [Canadian] Government proposes to implement a “bail-in” regime for systemically important banks. This regime will be designed to ensure that, in the unlikely event that a systemically important bank depletes its capital, the bank can be recapitalized and returned to viability through the very rapid conversion of certain bank liabilities into regulatory capital. This will reduce risks for taxpayers. The Government will consult stakeholders on how best to implement a bail-in regime in Canada. Implementation timelines will allow for a smooth transition for affected institutions, investors and other market participants. Systemically important banks will continue to be subject to existing risk management requirements, including enhanced supervision and recovery and resolution plans.
This risk management framework will limit the unfair advantage that could be gained by Canada’s systemically important banks through the mistaken belief by investors and other market participants that these institutions are ‘too big to fail’.”
A depositor is an unsecured creditor to a bank. The Canadian government presents its position to be one of shielding the taxpayer from the need to pay for bailing out a failing bank. As a taxpayer that is comforting.
However as a depositor, the phrase “rapid conversion of certain bank liabilities into regulatory capital” concerns me. My deposit is the bank’s liability. Could depositors’ funds fall under the definition of ‘certain bank liabilities’?
I searched the entire 442 page document and I cannot find where the term ‘certain bank liabilities’ is defined.
The prudent approach I believe would be to assume that under certain conditions, certain bank liabilities will include depositors’ funds; at least those funds in excess of CAD 100,000 which is our so-called insured amount.
Even if it has noble intentions now, under a credit and derivatives collapse scenario, it is conceivable that the Canadian government could be coerced or bullied by external agents into grabbing depositors’ funds just like what is happening in Cyprus.

 

EU to Bank Depositors in Other Member States: You Could Be Next

Via: Telegraph:
Savings accounts in Spain, Italy and other European countries will be raided if needed to preserve Europe’s single currency by propping up failing banks, a senior eurozone official has announced.
The new policy will alarm hundreds of thousands of British expatriates who live and have transferred their savings, proceeds from house sales and other assets to eurozone bank accounts in countries such as France, Spain and Italy.
The euro fell on global markets after Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the Dutch chairman of the eurozone, announced that the heavy losses inflicted on depositors in Cyprus would be the template for future banking crises across Europe.
“If there is a risk in a bank, our first question should be ‘Okay, what are you in the bank going to do about that? What can you do to recapitalise yourself?’,” he said.
“If the bank can’t do it, then we’ll talk to the shareholders and the bondholders, we’ll ask them to contribute in recapitalising the bank, and if necessary the uninsured deposit holders.”
Translation: banking deposits anywhere in the world (including, in the not too distant future, US banks) are no longer secure. Plan, and behave, accordingly.

Report Number Of Americans On Food Assistance Program Hits Record High

 

Too big to fail or ignore: How the US went from over 13,000 banks in 1987 to 6,000 today. $7.4 trillion in deposits backed by $32 billion dollars.


Remember when too big to fail brought our economy to a grinding halt? Of course you do because this is a recent financial event with dramatic ramifications. In the time since the buffet of bailouts was rolled out you might be surprised that the too big to fail banks have only grown even larger and if they were too big to fail before, what happens when they become even bigger? Some walk around in a financially comfortable delusion about our current system even though we all realize that we will never payback our $16 trillion in national debt. You also have a banking system backing $7.4 trillion in insured deposits with $32 billion (that is, 0.43 percent). Yet in our current system the Fed is digitally inflating away our currency and limiting available banking options. Are we simply ignoring the too big to fail?

Slovenia faces contagion from Cyprus as banking crisis deepens


"Banks are under severe distress," said International Monetary Fund in its annual health check on the country. Non-performing loans of the Slovenia’s three largest banks reached 20.5pc last year, with a third of all corporate loans turning bad.
Yields on two-year debt in the Alpine state have tripled over the past week, jumping from 1.2pc to 4.26pc before falling back slightly on Thursday. Ten-year yields have reached a post-EMU high of 6.25pc.

 

The Global Elite Are Very Clearly Telling Us That They Plan To Raid Our Bank Accounts


Don’t be surprised when the global elite confiscate money from your bank account one day. They are already very clearly telling you that they are going to do it. Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem is the president of the Eurogroup – an organization of eurozone finance ministers that was instrumental in putting together the Cyprus “deal” – and he has said publicly that what has just happened in Cyprus will serve as a blueprint for future bank bailouts. What that means is that when the chips are down, they are going to come after YOUR money. So why should anyone put a large amount of money in the bank at this point? Perhaps you can make one or two percent on your money if you shop around for a really good deal, but there is also a chance that 40 percent (or more) of your money will be confiscated if the bank fails.

 

After Cyprus, euro zone will slip into depression

 

LONDON (MarketWatch) — A deal was always likely to be done at the last minute in Cyprus.
The sums of money were too small, and the impact of the country chaotically pulling out of the euro too catastrophic, for the two sides not to be prepared to compromise. Late at night, with a deadline looming, the two sides managed to cobble together a deal. The euro staggers on for another day.
But the Cyprus debacle will deepen the depression now starting to grip the European economy. This is no longer a financial crisis — it is an economic crisis. And the collapse of Cyprus will make that a whole lot worse.
The so-called rescue will push one more country into a catastrophic recession. It will provoke an outflow of global funds from the euro-zone. And it will encourage small businesses and depositors to hoard cash. A modern economy can’t function without a healthy banking system. And after Cyprus, no bank in the euro zone can be regarded as safe anymore.
There has been a lot of nonsense written about how the Cypriot economic model was unsustainable. It turned itself into an offshore financial center, its banks stuffed with dodgy Russian money, we are told. In the German version of events — and in Germany, financial markets are always treated with suspicion — they were the authors of their own downfall. If they went broke, it was their own fault. And if they got kicked out, maybe the currency would be better off without them.
None of it was really fair. True, there was a lot of Russian money in the country’s banks. But so what? Despite what you might see in Hollywood movies, Russia is no more dominated by gangsters than many other countries. Moscow is no more corrupt than Las Vegas or Naples. Nor is there much reason to think the Russians parking their money there are dodging taxes. Tax in Russia is very low — a 13% flat-rate income tax and a 20% corporation tax. On the whole, people don’t dodge taxes that minimal — it isn’t worth the risks involved. If they were, they would have been better off paying taxes in Russia than the levies they will end up paying on their deposits in Cyprus.
In truth, banking is a very lucrative industry and there is no reason not to base an economy on it. Plenty of places have massive financial industries without being unstable. What about Switzerland, probably the most stable nation in the world? Or London or New York? Iceland blew up, but as a general rule, financial centers do well. Banking made Cyprus one of the wealthiest countries in the Mediterranean, with a GDP per capita of $30,000, about the same as Spain. If the euro crisis had not destroyed its main trading partner — Greece — and imposed huge losses on its banks it would have carried on getting richer. Since the rest of the euro zone caused the crisis there was no reason not to help it out.
Instead, the European Union and the International Monetary Fund came up with a “rescue” that will destroy the Cypriot economy. Like so many earlier euro-zone deals, it has bought short-term stability at the price of long-term disaster.
There are three big problems:

The relatively successful Cypriot economy is about to be decimated

Anti-bailout protesters hold a banner and a Cypriot flag during a student parade marking Greece's Independence Day in Nicosia earlier this week.
Already there are estimates that GDP could drop 20% over the next five years. What else is to be expected? Services make up 80% of the economy, and while tourism will survive, the banking industry will not. No serious money will want to remain in the country after the saga of the past week. Maybe Cyprus is meant to build up other industries. But how exactly can it do that with a bust banking system and capital controls that will stop companies taking money out of the country?
There might be some offshore gas, as many people have speculated this week, but who will want to develop it if they can’t get their money out? North Korea probably has a friendlier business climate than Cyprus as of this week. It will join Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Italy in permanent recession. An arc of poverty and unemployment is spreading across Europe that starts in Nicosia and ends up in Dublin. As each country gets poorer it gets tougher for the rest.

The ‘rescue’ will lead to an exit of global funds from the euro zone

Bank bonuses have been paid out and more than half the employees surveyed by recruiter Ambition Group are looking to change jobs. These are the banking jobs in highest demand.
The euro aimed to be a global reserve currency to rival the dollar. It was making some progress towards that. For example, 42% of Russian reserves were held in euros, and they are the fourth largest in the world. They won’t be staying there. Spain is already proposing a 0.2% levy on bank accounts. Others may well follow. Becoming a global reserve currency was meant to be one of the key benefits of creating the euro — there is no chance of that now. Instead, funds will flow out, hitting the currency, and more importantly damaging investment.

Deposits are going to flee the other peripheral countries

It won’t happen overnight. Opening up a foreign bank account is actually quite difficult, unless you have a lot of money it is unlikely to be worth the bother. But individuals and companies will ultimately become more and more reluctant to hold money in the bank. They will prefer real assets instead, or they will stick to cash. That is going to hurt those economies even further and hit their wobbling banks.
It would have been far better for both Cyprus and the rest of Europe to have made some tough long-term decisions over the last weekend, and that would have meant rescuing the Cypriot banks and negotiating the country’s orderly exit from the single currency.
Markets might rally on the deal, a sudden Cypriot exit would have been a traumatic event. But the so-called rescue is still a disaster of the euro-zone economy. It was already shrinking. By the autumn it will be in a full-scale depression. And that means the euro itself and European equity markets will be falling for the rest of this year.

Blow to borrowers as banks are ordered to stockpile an extra £25billion to prepare for another financial crisis


Britain’s banks have been told to stockpile £25billions by the end of the year to prepare for future financial crises.
In a major blow to borrowers, the Bank of England warned banks they face a potential £50 billion hit over the next three years from eurozone shocks, bad debts and mis-selling scandals.
Leading high street chains are warned they must bolster their balance sheets to plug a hole in their capital reserves, in a move which critics warned will further limit lending to businesses and homebuyers.
The economic system, as it is practised in the West, is totally unsustainable, and another major sharp economic shock is nearly unavoidable.
As we have told our readers and listeners over the years, please don't panic: plan.
Make sure you have long-term storable food, a way to purify water, batteries, extra medications on hand for the family and pets. Have a plan for coming together in the case of an emergency, and make sure you can reasonably defend yourself from intruders. Also, identify neighbors with whom you feel comfortable working, and talk about how you could work collaboratively, should the excrement hit the ventilator.

 

PressTV: Look out! The ‘BRIIICS’ are coming!


The importance of the BRICS summit cannot be overestimated partly because it represents new countries beginning to take power and partly because it heralds a new world coming into being.”
Yes, BRIIICS, with three “I”s. That’s because to the countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (which have just held a summit in Durban, South Africa) will soon be added Iran and Indonesia.
Iran is a stalwart moral and political leader. It stands up against Zionism. It has huge natural resources. It is making extraordinary technological progress. It will soon be a BRIIICS member.
And so will Indonesia, which has the world’s fourth largest population, a fast developing economy (around 7% per year) and, again, huge natural resources.

 

BRICS plan development bank to rival World Bank

World Bulletin/News Desk
The BRICS, the group of fast-growing emerging markets, meets for the first time on African soil in the South African city of Durban. At their fifth summit, they are to discuss the setup of a development bank to overhaul the global financial system.
BRICS emerging powers sought a deal on setting up a development bank that would rival Western-backed institutions, trying to iron out significant differences ahead of a leaders' summit in Durban.
The major outcome of this year’s summit is expected to be the announcement of the formation of the BRICS Development Bank (BDB). Originally proposed as an institution at last year’s New Delhi summit, the organization’s “strategic goal is to transform the aging international financial architecture,” Mikhail Margelov, President Putin’s envoy to Africa was quoted by Bloomberg.
Economic data shows that the grouping of Brazil, China, India, Russia and South Africa now account for 25 percent of global GDP and 40 percent of the world's population.
China, Brazil sign deal to trade in own currencies
Meanwhile, BRICS members China and Brazil agreed on Tuesday to trade in their own currencies the equivalent of up to $30 billion per year, moving to take almost half of their trade exchanges out of the U.S. dollar zone.
The agreement, due to last three years and signed hours before the start of a BRICS summit in Durban, South Africa, marked a step by the two largest economies of the emerging powers group to make real changes to global trade flows long dominated by the United States and Europe.
The IMF and World bank will move heaven and earth to prevent this from happening, even to the point of fomenting a world war.

 

Russia And China Create New Bank to Replace The IMF


And yesterday they gave $100 billion to help set it up.
The leaders of the so-called BRICS nations -- Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa -- are set to approve the establishment of a new development bank during an annual summit that began today in the eastern South African city of Durban, officials from all five nations say. They will also discuss pooling foreign-currency reserves to ward off balance of payments or currency crises.
“If they announce a BRICS bank it will be quite something,” O’Neill said in an e-mailed reply to questions on March 15. “At a minimum it symbolizes they can achieve something as political group and means lots of other things could follow in the future. It also means that they will have their own kind of special World Bank, which may aid infrastructure and trade projects.”
Finance ministers and central bank governors from the BRICS nations, who met in Durban today, agreed to set up currency crisis fund of about $100 billion, Brazilian Finance Minister Guido Mantega told reporters today. He didn’t give details of proposed funding for the new bank, which Brazil wants established by 2014. The nation’s leaders are due to sign a final accord tomorrow.

 

HOW YOU BECAME A SLAVE TO THE BANKERS!


Then, in 1913, a corrupt Congress and a corrupt President changed the structure of the nation's economy and stole your freedom to say "no"! The economic system was reverted to a mirror of that same system the nation fought a revolution to be free of. The power to issue money was taken away from the government and given to the bankers and from that day onward, ALL money in circulation was created as the result of a loan at interest from the bankers to the government, to business, and to the people. There is no exception. Every dollar paid in salary, spent to purchase food or gas, or paid in taxes, began as an interest bearing loan. There is no money in circulation in the United States that did not start out as a loan at interest from the bankers at the privately-owned Federal Reserve system.
Now that Cyprus has awakened the world to just how desperate the global banking situation is, I figured it was time to reprise some of my earlier articles on the subject.

US Citizens Defined as Property of the Government


This UCC document appeared on one of the Skype chats yesterday, it seemed familar to one mentioned to me by a very connected financial person. The UCC filing statement from 2011 raised 14.3 Trillion in money under the Obama Administration by using the the people of the United States as “property improvement” capital on the land for purposes of collateral. You can’t file a UCC on property, but you can file on property improvements.
Essentially they sold you for 14.3 Trillion dollars in borrowed funds. This is quite separate and additional from the birth certificate bonds.
I emailed my banking finance contact and they provided me with President Clinton’s 1997 Presidential Order, publicly defining the people of the United States as Property of the United States.
Defining people as property has been going on since the 1930s but was only declared publicly in 1997 by President Clinton.
Here’s the quote from  my anonymous contact:
The UCC-1 filing that you posted is related to this matter however, The executive order specifically mentioning publicly that we are Human Capital was Executive Order No. 13037 March 4, 1997 (specifically section 2 subsection ( b ) ). Prior to this the registrations of birth was secretly used in order to create a ‘Bond’ or debt on each individual. This has been taking place since 1933 in private.

Incredible Development! – The Sovereign People of Ireland Finally Deliver Dire Warning to the Banks & Government!

by Gabriel Donohoe   (Fools Crow)
Incredible Breaking News!
In the name of  the sovereign, free people of the ancient land of Éire, a Cease & Desist Order has been served on the chief executives of the Central Bank of Ireland, the Irish banks, senior civil servants, and Michael Noonan, Minister for Finance.
The Order puts them all on Notice that they are now personally liable for the inherent fraud in all mortgages, for pursuing Irish sovereigns for money, and for threatened and actual evictions.
The Order cites a lawful and legal Uniform Commercial Code Document #2012114586 which has been publicly registered and unrebutted in Washington DC. This document confirms the foreclosure of all global banks, including the Bank for International Settlements, corporate judicial systems worldwide, and all corporations masquerading as governments.
Those named in the Notice have all been charged with Crimes Against Humanity and will be pursued and tried in a Common Law Court, a court similar to the one where the previous pope was tried and sentenced in his absence.
This move is unprecedented in Irish history and shows the anger and outrage felt by the beleaguered sovereign people of this country who have been assaulted and bled by a criminal, rapacious banking system working in tandem with an equally criminal court system and a corrupt government.
Is this the beginning of the end of an ancient bondage system that has enslaved us all for millennia?
Speak up, Sovereign People of Ireland, and let the sound of your wrath be heard across the globe!
