How Much Do Shady Financial Practices Cost Us? Try $22.7 Trillion

THU, 7/28/2016 – BY LYNN PARRAMORE

America’s financial system is broken for all but a few at the top — that much is plain. The rest sense that we are stuck on the minus end of some great financial formula, but given the complexity and size of Big Finance, it’s hard to pin down exactly why it happens and how it all adds up.

Enter economist Gerald Epstein of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He has dived in and crunched the numbers, and the results are eye-popping. Epstein and his colleague Juan Antonio Montecino look at exactly how families, taxpayers and businesses get ripped off by dubious financial activities and tally up the costs in a new paper for the Roosevelt Institute, “Overcharged: The High Cost of Finance.”(The Institute for New Economic Thinking has also supported several papers by Epstein).

It’s Simple: Vote Trump If For Peace, Vote Hillary If For War

Sat, Jul 30, 2016

 It’s pretty obvious

Now that the presidential campaign enters its final stages one has to find some simple slogans to convince the electorate who they should vote for. Long essays written even by the most sophisticated political technologists, journalists or scholars won’t do the job.

Intellectuals and well educated people have already made up their minds.  Some of them might have their own, sometimes hidden agenda, so trying to persuade them to change their minds is close to “mission impossible.” At the same time regular folks have to worry about delivering bread and butter to their families and do not have time to read these essays anyway.

Office of Poofness 7-31-16… “We Are The Champions” | Kauilapele’s Blog

Another Poof, et al, report. I’m quite sure many will find points of interest here. The Fires of Cleansing and Transformation are here. And since I post this while sitting here in stillness at Kīlauea, it feels especially potent to me. Enjoy.

Music lyrics and video are at the end.

[Kp note: I always take these “Poofnesses” as potential data. Bottom line, how does it hit my Higher Innards”? Does it “ring” true within (if it “rings” at all)?]

[Poof] “I think that you know already that we have very little more we can offer to once more reinforce faith in this project. We, too, are waiting just like every one is; but we do have access to the messengers sufficient to hold to the faith in what we know is coming about. Please quit looking for hidden agendas and or hidden codes or such poppycock… The big guns are at work and this is all we can say about that Just add your mental strength to this issue.”

[Susan] “You are all definitely heroes and heroines to have come to this point in this journey. I invite you to reflect on what strengths have been honed within yourself as a result of this journey that you have chosen. The enthusiastic anticipation has certainly increased this week with much happy chatter. May we finally be entering the window of time which will usher in our much awaited blessings. S.”

[ZAP] “IN BREAKING NEWS, I JUST SAW THE POST WHERE CRAYFORD THE CRAYFISH IS EXPOSED. NEIL KEENAN MAY RECEIVE STUFF FROM KATHY M. ON THE CRAYFISH AND THE OITC THAT PROVES THE ATTEMPT TO TAKE OVER THE GLOBAL COLLATERAL ACCOUNTS BY THEM.

“THE SIGNS AND EVIDENCE OF THE CHANGES HAVE BEEN STEADILY INCREASING IN THESE END TIMES, AND IT APPEARS WE ARE AT THE END OF THE GRAND EXPERIMENT OF THIS PLANET.

“THE DARK ONES HAVE BEEN TAKEN OUT. THEY ARE GONE. I AM TALKING ABOUT THE OVERLORDS OF THE RECOGNIZABLE CABAL NAMES CONSTANTLY IN THE NEWS, THE BLOGS, AND THE STAPLE FARE OF THE GURUS AND EXPOSERS AND WHISTLEBLOWERS. THE BOYS AND GIRLS UPSTAIRS IN THEIR BIG BOY HOMES THAT TRAVERSE SPACE AND TIME PARKED OUTSIDE THIS PLANET, HAVE BEEN ON STANDBY FOR QUITE SOME TIME WATCHING, WAITING AND NOW FULLY ACTIVATED AND WORKING ON THE FINAL CLEANUP.

“THE ARMAGEDDON OF SCRIPTURE IS HERE, BUT NOT IN THE FORMAT OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE THAT IS TOUTED BY EVANGELISTS OF THE RED FACE LOUD VOICE ORDER. THE ARMAGEDDON IS ACTUALLY THE END OF THE EXPERIMENT OF CHOICE… THE ARMAGEDDON WILL COME TO CONCLUSION AND THE DIVINE PLAN FOR HUMANITY WILL CONTINUE TO FULLY IMPLEMENT. THESE IDIOTS HAD TO BE TAKEN OUT FIRST.

“THE HOLD OF THE VARIOUS RELIGIONS WILL ALSO COME TO AN END AS THE TRUTH OF TRUE SPIRITUALITY COMES OUT INTO THE OPEN AS THE COMMON THREAD THROUGH ALL OF THEM. THE 10 MAJOR RELIGIONS, AS DEPICTED ON THE SPECIAL PAINTINGS THAT WERE DONE UP BY THE ELDERS LONG AGO (I SAW THEM AND HANDLED THEM PHYSICALLY), HAD CERTAIN SYMBOLS COMMON TO THEM ALL. THESE RELIGIONS WERE ALLOWED TO FLOURISH AS PART OF THE EXPERIMENT, BUT NOW THEIR FUNCTION IS ABOUT OVER. THIS IS WHY THE VARIOUS PROPHECIES OF THE LAST POPE AND SO ON HAVE BEEN KICKING ABOUT.”

Whistleblower’s Stunning Claim: “NSA Has All Of Hillary’s Deleted Emails, It May Be The Leak” | Zero Hedge

Tyler Durden's picture

Over a year before Edward Snowden shocked the world in the summer of 2013 with revelations that have since changed everything from domestic to foreign US policy but most of all, provided everyone  a glimpse into just what the NSA truly does on a daily basis, a former NSA staffer, and now famous whistleblower, William Binney, gave excruciating detail to Wired magazine about all that Snowden would substantiate the following summer.

We covered it in a 2012 post titled “We Are This Far From A Turnkey Totalitarian State” – Big Brother Goes Live September 2013.” Not surprisingly, Binney received little attention in 2012 – his suggestions at the time were seen as preposterous and ridiculously conspiratorial. Only after the fact, did it become obvious that he was right. More importantly, in the aftermath of the Snowden revelations, what Binney has to say has become gospel.
