Why sanctioning Iran is a stupid idea…

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 8:40 pm

Every weekend I trudge down to the Berkeley flea market to get a deep-tissue massage from Dr. Zhu and his staff. Just 20 bucks. Best deal in the whole Bay Area. And while I was wandering around other stalls at the flea market afterward, I got to chit-chatting with some older guy regarding my latest favorite hot topic — cut-throat world banking and cold-hearted central banks..

“It’s not what you think,” said the old man. It isn’t? “No. There aren’t a whole bunch of huge central banks in the world. There is really only one — the hegemon super-bank. That’s the only central bank that really counts.” What? My wonderful Berkeley co-op credit union doesn’t count any more? Humph.

“Hundreds of years ago, top banksters met in Antwerp and decided that the most powerful country in the world should also be the site of the most powerful bank in the world — because said hegemon bank would be safest that way. And thus, after World War II, this super-bank was moved to the United States because everyone in the bankster mafia back then agreed that America was [literally] da bomb. Breton Woods and all that shite sealed the deal. http://www.g8.utoronto.ca/scholar/bailin/bailin2000.pdf

“But now, by mutual agreement, the world’s main hegemon super-bank has been moved again. It is now located in China.” Okay. If you say so.

Does that mean that, because it is no longer located here in America, that America no longer runs the world? Apparently China now runs the world? “Bingo!” And even American banksters are aware of this too?

“Absolutely. Top banksters here used to send their kids to Exetor or Andover and then on Harvard. Now they just hire Mandarin-speaking nannies, send their children to the University of Beijing and buy them fancy condos in Shanghai — hoping to catch some crumbs from the table of Rothchilds gone Asian.” Who knew? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14ZHRBfpeNg

“But in order for China to truly and completely run the world, two other things need to happen,” continued the old man. “Billions of other people need to recognize China’s new power — and billions of other people need to start dissing on America so that it will lose even more of its power.” Suppose I agree with you? Just suppose?

“The king is dead, long live the king, as the old saying goes. But that will only happen when America’s banking power is completely diminished.” And so? The guy was starting to lose me here — but only because the BBQ chicken three stalls over smelled really good.

“And so here is where the Trump administration comes in.” Hmmm…. “Think about it. Trump has systematically done everything he possibly can in the past two years to make the world hate America. He’s kidnapped (and/or murdered) babies, moved the American embassy to Jerusalem, slept with hookers, screwed the environment, nominated Bret Kavanaugh, advocated coat-hanger abortions, denounced the Paris climate accord and given racists and fanatics a cozy new home. But Trump was actually hired to do just that — and I gotta say that he’s doing a hecka good job at it too.” https://www.ibtimes.com/child-dead-after-ice-detention-center-stay-due-negligent-care-immigration-lawyer-2704521

But what about the nuclear deal with North Korea that Trump brokered? Didn’t the whole world love that? “China orchestrated that one completely. All Trump had to do was show up. They coulda just sent over a cardboard cut-out of Trump. Same effect. China wins.”

But what about Russia? “The whole world loves Russia right now because Russia does things that make sense. Putin is a hero. So by dissing Putin and constantly screaming their lungs out about this crazy RussiaGate fantasy, Americans just look like fools. Mission accomplished. Again.” Seriously? “Yep.” https://blackagendareport.com/bizarre-facebook-path-corporate-fascism

So how does all this current bankster-born hype apply to the Middle East? “Piece of cake. China finally stepped in regarding Syria and so sent a clear message to Israel, Britain and America that China was in charge of Syria now — and if America and friends didn’t like it, they would very soon be without any banks at all.” China can do that? “You bet your boots that it can.”

But what about all of America’s military might and nuclear arsenal? Does that not count for nothing? “That illusion would last about two seconds if China’s hegemon bank crossed the USA off its financial dance card. We Americans would be far too busy trying to get roofs over our heads and searching dumpsters for wilted lettuce to even think about funding a military complex.” https://www.codepink.org/26_killed_funded_by_blackrock

But what about Israel? “China’s interference in Syria has also sent a clear message to the Israelis too. Netanyahu and friends can either choose to get with the program or else keep their star hitched to the sinking American ship. I bet you anything that the Israelis will soon see the light. They are total opportunists, have no loyalties at all. They will kiss China’s butt in a nano-second now that they’ve seen the handwriting on the (wailing) wall. They don’t care about religion. They care only about being bitch to the current top dog.”

The same holds true for the Saudis, I bet. No matter how much oil they produce, they’d still better watch their backs. They think that they are Allah’s gift to the world? Not. Nobody likes them either and they are definitely not in either Allah’s or China’s good graces right now. Or mine. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/article-saudi-arabia-expelling-canadian-ambassador-freezing-trade-with-canada/

But what about Palestine? “Just you watch. Suddenly Israelis will start calling Palestinians their BFFs — if that’s what it takes to make China happy. Israelis will even start sucking up to Hamas and even start welcoming Freedom Flotillas to Gaza with open arms, serving their crews tea and bagels on deck.” https://21stcenturywire.com/2018/08/04/important-update-on-the-zionist-storming-of-the-gaza-freedom-flotilla-al-awda-by-doctor-on-board/freedom-for-gaza/

But what about all those sanctions on Iran? “That’s just a joke — a joke on America. Iran will simply turn to China for everything that it needs, making China even more powerful and leaving Europe bereft of cheap oil and America sucking its thumb. Just that one simple act by China in Syria has showed us all that.”

But what about all those Giants T-shirts that are being sold over there at the flea market stall next to the chicken? “Ha! Bad example. They too are all made in China!”

PS: Speaking of kidnapped babies, I recently picketed a humongous ICE “processing center” in Aurora, Colorado, where dozens of the parents of those 700-odd kidnapped babies are being concentrated into internment “camps” — a thousand miles away from their precious little ones.

And wanna know where so many of our income tax dollars are being kidnapped off to as well? At least the ones that haven’t already been kidnapped by banksters and war profiteers that is? Look no further. Our dollars are serving as ransom to pay for all those freaking ICE facilities all over America. Millions and millions of our very own income tax dollars went into building that gigantic monstrosity in Aurora. And I made this video to prove it too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pu_LzFJ8kzA&t=60s

Madam Jane predicts: “You’re in the poorhouse now…”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 2:10 pm

Madam Jane invited me over for high tea yesterday — even though she was on a gluten-free kick and the petit-fours were all made from almond flour. I ate them anyway. Not bad.

“In the future,” said Madam Jane, “things are going to be different.” Of course they will. It’s the freaking future. Duh.

“In the old days, cavemen mostly relied on weapons to defend their turf. In the future, however, only smart people will survive. But this is going to be a problem for America in the future. In the future America is going to be a nation of dumb-asses.” Oh.

“The most successful nations in the future will only be those who encourage the abilities of all of their citizens.” Well you surely can’t say that is true about America right now, a country that has systematically ground down the human potential of its Black people, Native Americans, women, Latinos and even poor White people — systematically ground that potential right into the dirt. Everything tangible and even intangible here has been systematically stolen, funneled, gambled, stripped, given up and/or handed over to America’s very top elite.

“A nation that eats its own cannot last,” continued Madam Jane. Oh hell. I don’t want to be anybody’s lunch.

“At this point in time it pretty much looks like America’s military power will rule the world forever — both at home and abroad. But that’s just silly.” Silly?

“It’s just plain silly to think that America’s Nazi-like domination will last forever. All people, whether they are Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus or even atheists, will simply get tired of being hit over the head and bossed around. Americans will ultimately end up going from being the world’s dominant boss-men to living in the world’s biggest poorhouse. You heard it here first.”

“Very interesting,” I replied. “Thank you for that amazing prediction. Are there any petit-fours left?”

Make friends with immigrants: You’re gonna need their help!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jane Stillwater @ 2:07 pm

There I was, happily thinking that my life was safe and secure. I had a roof over my head, a car that (sort of) worked and lived within walking distance of a great public library. But then I got an e-mail in my inbox predicting the end of the (financial) world. Oh rats.

“Americans are over two hundred fifty TRILLION dollars in debt right now,” said the e-mail. “Our five largest banks own over 200 trillion dollars in derivatives but only have 20 trillion dollars in assets. That kind of financial shell game is dangerous. It can’t last. The greatest depression in history is heading our way. Hunker down and buy gold.” https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-16/financial-weapons-mass-destruction-top-25-us-banks-have-222-trillion-dollars-derivat

Derivatives? Huh? I had always thought that foolish spending on barbaric “wars” would be the cause of America’s ruin. Who knew it would just be our very own greedy banks that would do us in, happily allowing our country to rot from the inside. https://caitlinjohnstone.com/2018/07/30/be-suspicious-of-everyone-who-habitually-defends-the-powerful-from-the-weak/

“So what else can I do to protect myself — seeing as how buying gold isn’t exactly an option for me right now?” I immediately e-mailed back.

“One good thing you can do immediately is to make friends with an immigrant.”

But why?

“Because immigrants and refugees know basic survival skills. You don’t. When the greatest financial catastrophe in history arrives, you are going to need immigrants and refugees far more than they are going to need you.”

Immigrants and refugees, fleeing from America’s cruel colonial realities in faraway places like Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen and in places closer to home like Mexico and Honduras, know how to survive when the going gets tough. Do we couch-potato Americans know how to survive and “make something out of nothing” too? Not so much. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/08/casualties-saudi-led-coalition-air-raids-hit-yemen-hodeidah-180802163441327.html

Hey, wait. That’s not entirely true. I know how to plant tomatoes. “Yeah but can you milk a cow, make candles and soap, entertain yourself without your SmartPhone or TV, cook without a microwave oven and build a house?” Er, no.

PS: I just got back from Aurora, Colorado, home of one of the largest and most totally scary I.C.E. “processing centers” in America. Three whole city blocks long and another whole city block wide — with no windows and only one door. On a cold, wet, rainy afternoon last week I kept my eye on this GEO-run prison-for-profit where dozens of the parents of ICE-kidnapped children are being held. Disgusting. https://denver.cbslocal.com/2018/06/21/detained-aurora-ice-immigration-parents/

“First we have a government that feels free to kidnap immigrant children and, when that works out so well for them — will they also feel free to kidnap our own children too?” That is the question that every decent American mom should be asking herself right now.

700 immigrant children are still separated from their families right now. Remember back when your own parents, grandparents or ancestors were immigrants too? Even my Cherokee ancestors were once immigrants here. Even Black slaves were (brutally involuntary) immigrants. For better or for worse, there would be no freaking America at all without immigrants. http://time.com/5350788/kids-separated-from-families-july-26-deadline/

PPS: Breaking news: An immigrant toddler just died — shortly after being released from an ICE kiddie jail — due to a serious respiratory infection that she had contacted there (and probably from a broken heart too). My first question is, “How many babies have died inside ICE kiddie jails — dead babies that we aren’t being told about?” https://www.ibtimes.com/child-dead-after-ice-detention-center-stay-due-negligent-care-immigration-lawyer-2704521
