Goldfinger's Pissed!

"Pentagon investigators" (no doubt a euphemism for a "Special Ops" team) are, according to an article in the Daily Beast, Pentagon Manhunt, are "desperately" looking for Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks. Written by Philip Shenon, a former investigative reporter at The New York Times, and author of The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation, the article quotes one "U.S. Official" as saying "We’d like to know where he is; we’d like his cooperation in this."

Yeah, right. Wikikeaks is, if the backstory is true, preparing to publish as many as 260,000 U.S. State Department diplomatic cables, which it is claimed "could do serious damage to national security". Although earlier stories expressed concern on State's part that "foreign officials" might actually discover what Ambassadors and embassy staff really think of them, I have little doubt that the "national security" concerns revolve around documentation of renditions and "black site" prisons where torture (and YES IT IS) and other war crimes were committed.

"His cooperation" is likely to be a euphemism for "terminate -- with extreme prejudice" which, of course, is itself a euphemism for "Kill that M#$%^&*". Daniel Ellsberg, famed for his courage in leaking "The Pentagon Papers", which he discovered when he worked for the Rand Corporation (the Vietnam Era's "Halliburton"), knows that Assange is in danger, remarking "you have to understand these guys never use the word ‘kill.’”

Ellsberg should know, having himself "been the target of a White House hit squad" in 1972, when "a dozen CIA assets from the Bay of Pigs, Cuban émigrés" were brought up from Miami with orders to “incapacitate [him] totally”, observed "Obama is now proclaiming rights of life and death, being judge, jury, and executioner of Americans without due process. No president has ever claimed that and possibly no one since John the First."

For my part, thanks, Julian.

The Myth of Teddy Roosevelt

In an otherwise excellent article, Theodore Roosevelt and the Modern Presidency by Thomas E. Woods, Jr., we are reminded of Roosevelt, "the trust buster", who set out to save us from "the money interests". Would that that were true.

Roosevelt (as did his cousin, who followed, uncannily, his path to the Presidency), came from "the money interests". His well-heeled family was a part of the "upper crust" of New York society, and had been since his grandfather, Cornelius Van Schaack Roosevelt was a contemporary of Astor, and "Commodore" Vanderbilt. Rather than "crippling" the railroads and other industries with regulations and bureaucracy, he created the means by which those interests would infiltrate the federal government, and ultimately, transfer the liabilities of industry to the People, a process that has continued unabated to this day.

His Attorney General, Philander Knox, had been the attorney for a number of the "Captains of Industry", and indeed, instituted approximately half as many antitrust suits (in Roosevelt's 2 terms) as Taft's did (in one), resulting in Roosevelt's disfavor, and his candidacy in the "progressive" Bull Moose Party, throwing the election of 1912 to Wilson.

Wilson, upon entering office, appointed Philander Knox as Secretary of State, and Knox shepherded the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act (1913), and "certified" the ratification of the 16th Amendment, by which the liabilites of private industry would be steadily and increasingly shifted to the People.

Nevertheless, Woods' article does have a considerable amount of information, and is worth a read.

From Coin Update News : Gold and Silver Price Manipulation Efforts Failed This Week

"On Wednesday, it looks like the US government, which largely acts through its US and foreign trading partners, was unable to push down gold and silver prices below the critical $1,200 and $18 at the COMEX close! Where this manipulation tactic has worked for many months in a row, this time the surge in demand for physical gold and silver overcame the resistance.
"The failure this week of these manipulation efforts is a huge signal that we are closer to the day when the floodgates will give way and we see gold and silver prices surging more quickly and by greater percentages than we have seen in decades. "
