Secret IMF Cyprus Agenda Blown by LaGarde-Threats, Gas Politics and Russia

Only 4 days after clumsily bobbling an IMF attempt to enslave and bankrupt the Cyprus government and its citizens in yet another bailout scheme with impossible conditions, IMF Chief Christine LaGarde has been sent a loud and clear message.  “You are expendable!”  Repeating the pattern begun when LaGarde’s predecessor, Dominique Strauss-Kahn was humiliatingly arrested and charged with rape in New York in 2011, LaGarde’s Paris home was publicly ransacked by EU authorities under the pretense of investigating a decades old case of corruption.  The timing of this action leaves little to the imagination while revealing that the nature of the Cyprus situation is much more important to the power elites than has been heretofore advertised.  LaGarde should probably be thankful for her high profile position which makes it more difficult to have her “disappeared” or “suicided”.  You see, the problem in Cyprus is not merely a financial problem; it is also a geopolitical problem.

It can be said that nearly all geopolitical problems are financial in nature, but not all financial problems are geopolitical.  This one is however, and it is one attached to the very heart of the future plans of the European power structure.  LaGarde has just endangered it by causing uproar over whether the depositors of the troubled Cypriot banks should have their money seized in order to save the banks as a condition of an IMF bailout.  She has in essence lost the forest while chopping at the tree right in front of her.  As this drama has unfolded and continues to quickly develop, we have seen the notion of deposit theft resoundingly rejected by the island country’s citizens while at least three bad outcomes have been created by LaGarde’s ineptitude:  1)  The financial markets have been roiled over the idea that bank deposits may be seized, 2) Cyprus has been driven into Russia’s arms for help, and 3) The current generation of world citizens have forever had their perceptions altered as to their relationships with banks and governments.  All three of these outcomes have severely damaged the long term agenda of the power elite, which explains the swift retaliation against LaGarde.  But there is a fourth outcome that has not yet been widely discussed in the overt media and which is probably the most important.

As mentioned above, the Cyprus agenda involves much more than finances, it also encompasses the long term economic prosperity of greater Europe as well as the containment of Russia and Vladimir Putin, who is seen as a threat.  Why?  Because of Europe’s inability to produce and supply for itself sufficient natural gas to power its industries.  Europe currently imports the majority of its gas energy, mostly from Russia, who in the past has proven willing to hold its gas hostage to extract higher prices or other concessions from the EU.  By the year 2020, the amount of gas imported by the EU is projected to rise to 68%.  This energy vulnerability would be enough to effectively hold the EU economy hostage by those who control the supply of gas, namely Russia.  Recently though, it has been estimated by scientists that the exclusive economic zones (EEZ) of Greece and Cyprus contain enough untapped gas resources to power the EU’s energy needs at projected 2020 levels for at least the next 120 years.  This means that in order for Russia to maintain its enviable position of leverage over the EU it must figure out how to either gain control over those gas supplies, or come up with a way to prevent them from ever coming on line.  So long as things remain turbulent in the Greek and Cypriot EEZs, time is on Russia’s side.  EU demand for gas will continue to rise, and Russia’s influence over the EU will proportionately increase.  But if things stabilize in the area and the EU is able to come to long term agreement over the infrastructure and supply of gas from Cyprus and Greece, then their prosperity is all but assured while Russia’s influence and profits will dramatically wane.

Having learned of the proposition by LaGarde to steal depositor’s savings to save their banks and obtain a bailout, Cyprus’ Financial Minister made a hasty visit to Russia to see if a deal could be reached, but Russia rebuffed those advances.  This was a most interesting development but it reveals Russia’s possible strategy.  Although it is possible Russia is playing a hardball game of negotiation, whereby they demand ironclad rights over the gas supplies, which probably were not offered at this early stage by the Cypriot minister, it could also mean that Russia is intent on keeping things in turmoil to prevent a deal being made by anyone, including the EU.  I rather think they are doing both, with negotiations being the first plan, and prevention of a calm investment environment to scuttle any rival deals being the backup plan.

By targeting the small island country’s depositors, LaGarde virtually guaranteed the measure would fail because the Icelandic model of throwing all the politicians out of office and storming the castle was a possibility not accounted for by her.  As anyone who follows politics knows, the best time to enact controversial change is just after an election, which gives the incumbent time to ride out the hostile reaction and rehabilitate his public image in time for the next election.  Cyprus had just held their elections less than three weeks prior to LaGarde’s demands on its government, so LaGarde must have wrongly assumed that now was a good time to act.  What LaGarde failed to realize was that the amount of bailout money being asked by Cyprus is a pittance when compared to the future earnings and leverage to be had when Cyprus’ gas holdings are developed.  This meant that the Cyriots had options, including striking a deal with the Russians, going bankrupt and minting their own currency to pay debts, or driving a harder bargain with the Europeans, which is probably what will be attempted.

There are already indications that Europe is going to further cave in their demands.  Although hard-edged talk of letting the Cypriot banks collapse continues, it seems doubtful that this will actually be allowed to occur because of the options already mentioned that are at Cyprus’ disposal.  Furthermore, even if the other options never panned out, the resulting turmoil would only serve to benefit the status quo, and therefore Russia, while further weakening the EU financial markets.  True, Russian depositors and the Russian government would initially suffer immediate losses because of their deposits in Cypriot banks, but in the long term, they would probably benefit by keeping the Cypriot gas supplies off line.  Ultimately, the best course of action for the EU in light of the damage caused by LaGarde will be to offer the bailout anyway, and then immediately forge agreements for the exploration, development and sale of Cyprus’ gas, viewing the bailout money as grease for the skids.  Germany has taken the position that they do not support the nationalization of Cypriot pension funds, which seems to show they do not wish to repeat LaGarde’s mistake, and is an indication of softening of their position.

From Russia’s perspective, once it is confirmed that a deal can’t be reached with the Cypriot government, it then becomes a matter of disrupting the political environment to the point where the gas lines simply can’t be developed.  In a small island country where 36% of the Island calls itself the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and is recognized only by Turkey as a legitimate political entity while being viewed by the rest of Cyprus and the world as occupied territory, it is not hard to imagine how Russia might foment political unrest.

LaGarde attempted to have her cake and eat it too.  It didn’t work, and now she is paying the price.  Europe is scrambling to repair the damage she has caused and align things so that the gas lines can be developed while Russia makes its own bid to gain control of those resources or stop them from ever being developed.  The Turks may yet play a part in this drama as a foil to the power elite in the EU.  Military action can’t be ruled out.

Why Alcohol Is A Drug & It’s Time We Start Looking At It That Way

Have you ever noticed the apparent disconnect that many people tend to have with regards to alcohol being a drug? Countless times, I’ve heard people who I know slam back some cocktails on a fairly regular basis say in conversation, in a somewhat judgmental tone, something along the lines of, ‘this is exactly why I don’t do drugs.’ As if they are somehow superior to those who smoke marijuana or use other recreational or psychedelic drugs from time to time. Or how about that person with the crazy caffeine addiction with the same response? Don’t even get me started. While traveling and staying in many different hostels there are often signs that say in bold, NO DRUGS ALLOWED, yet there is a bar and a fridge full of beer.

I believe that this disconnect is the cause for justifying our alcohol usage and often, our alcohol abuse. Because people generally don’t really think of alcohol when they think of drugs, it perpetuates this idea that unless you are a serious alcoholic, alcohol is relatively harmless. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Alcohol Is 100% A Drug & A Harmful One At That

A drug is classified as any substance that has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced to the body. Ding, ding, ding – there you have it, alcohol IS a drug. Perhaps the reason we tend to not think of alcohol as a drug is because of how the media tends to portray it. The media certainly wouldn’t want us to think of alcohol as a drug because drugs are bad, and if we did we may be more inclined to change our relationship with it and we wouldn’t want that now, would we?

Another possibility is because alcohol is legal, and often promoted, pushed and expected in our society. Because we want to believe that our governments and policy makers have our best interests in mind, we might think, well, it can’t be that bad if it’s legal. Unfortunately, this is a dangerous way to think as this type of thing goes way beyond our governments and is more so in the hands of large corporations who have the money to keep the truth hidden, and ultimately to keep us consuming things that are toxic to our health, like alcohol.

The Media’s Role

In the media, for example, you rarely see a TV show or a movie where the characters aren’t regularly consuming copious amounts of alcohol, and both these characters and those in alcohol advertisements are portrayed, to varying degrees, as sexy, cool, spontaneous, and fun. In fact, an estimated $8 billion in advertising was spent on alcohol promotion between 2002-2009. While knowledge of alcohol’s dangers is nowhere near as common as that of, say, smoking, it still begs the question, why is it kept in the dark? A lot of information is coming forward these days about how sugar is the tobacco of the 21st century and so on, but it seems the truth about alcohol’s dangers are largely being ignored.

So, Why Are We Lying To Ourselves?

Like any other substance, sugar, coffee, marijuana, potato chips, T.V., and video games – alcohol is an escape. Before I decided to quit drinking, I remember thinking that maybe I could learn to cut back or control my addiction, but that there was absolutely no way that I could quit for good, and the idea of not having some sort of relief from the way I had been feeling totally freaked me out. But after getting to the root of what was causing me to drink in the first place, it was easy to leave this behind, because I had faced myself, I didn’t have something that I needed to escape from anymore. Of course, I’m not perfect, I still do escape with other things from time to time, but alcohol was a problem for me.

Maybe alcohol isn’t a problem for you, or maybe you don’t realize how much of a problem it is, but regardless we have to accept that this substance is a drug. With most other things, moderate use is okay and likely won’t do too much harm, but binge-drinking on the weekends and having multiple glasses of wine a day is definitely not moderate use and is definitely pushing the lines of a drug addiction. We have to be honest with ourselves and if we feel that we need alcohol to have fun, to feel good or to manage stress then it’s clear that there are aspects of our lives that need to be looked at, accepted and addressed. Escaping with any substance is just a temporary feeling of relief and often, if left un-dealt with, our issues will only get worse.

Manipulation of Human Nervous System Possible Through TV & Computer Screens According to US Patent

Hendricus G. Loos has filed many patents in the US and one is US Patent 65061148. This is a patent that is intriguing as it suggests an apparatus that deals with the human nervous system manipulation through a TV or computer screen.

What has concerned the people who have found out about this patent is that the explanation of the patent states that even the weakest pulse might have an effect that is adverse on the nervous system of a human being.

Physiological effects have been observed in a human subject in response to stimulation of the skin with weak electromagnetic fields that are pulsed with certain frequencies near ½ Hz or 2.4 Hz, such as to excite a sensory resonance. Many computer monitors and TV tubes, when displaying pulsed images, emit pulsed electromagnetic fields of sufficient amplitudes to cause such excitation. It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as a video signal. The image displayed on a computer monitor may be pulsed effectively by a simple computer program. For certain monitors, pulsed electromagnetic fields capable of exciting sensory resonances in nearby subjects may be generated even as the displayed images are pulsed with subliminal intensity.

TV and Monitors Could Be Used To Manipulate Nervous System

According to the patent some physiological effects have been seen in humans when subjected to stimulation of their skin with electromagnetic fields that are weak and pulsed at frequencies close to ½ Hz or 2.4 Hz. It went on to suggest that many TV tubes and computer monitors emit pulsed electromagnetic fields when they are displaying images.

This means that it is possible to manipulate the nervous system of a person simply by pulsing images onto a TV or computer monitor. The patent reveals that it is possible to pulse images by embedding them into program material or by overlaying through a modulated video stream, for example through video signal or RF signal. The image could be shown on a computer monitor through a computer program that is simple.

Loos also went on to talk about the pulse variability along with the strength that the software can control and he talked about how with such as DVDs, computer monitor or videotapes it could be controlled along with it being able to be controlled remotely.

Certain monitors can emit electromagnetic field pulses that excite a sensory resonance in a nearby subject, through image pulses that are so weak as to be subliminal. This is unfortunate since it opens a way for mischievous application of the invention, whereby people are exposed unknowingly to manipulation of their nervous systems for someone else’s purposes. Such application would be unethical and is of course not advocated. It is mentioned here in order to alert the public to the possibility of covert abuse that may occur while being online, or while watching TV, a video, or a DVD.

People Could Be Subject To Abuse Unknowingly

The part that most concerns people is that some monitors are able to emit electromagnetic field pulses to excite a subject sensory resonance that is close-by despite the fact that the image pulses are weak.

This does, however, leave it open for those with more deviant ulterior motives to expose people without their knowledge and manipulate the nervous systems of people.

This would be unethical, but it was mentioned as being a possibility due to the fact that people should know about the possibility of abuse when they are browsing the internet, watching TV or a DVD.

The patent application gives many examples of the “nervous system of a subject can be manipulated through electromagnetic field pulses emitted by a nearby CRT or LCD monitor displaying images with pulsed intensity.”

The Nervous System Controls Everything in the Body

The nervous system is not something that should be messed around with as it has control over everything in the body and this includes the brain. The nervous system is basically a network of cells and nerves carrying messages to the brain and spinal cord and back to many other parts of the body.

The government in the USA has a history in undertaking experiments on humans to control their mind, and this patent would surely be something that they would be interested in. Imagine if the government was able to control the mind of people through their own TV or computer monitor?

It has been pointed out that TVs could now be doing the thinking for humans and the government could be making use of the pulse techniques to influence the thoughts, perceptions, and behavior of people. Knowing what is known about the government in the past and their history with mind control techniques, it would not be out of the question.

Are Game Consoles And Cell Phones Affecting Brainwaves Of People?

The patent raises many questions and one of them is the extent of the TV screens and computer monitors affecting the brainwaves of people. Could game consoles along with cell phones be affecting people?

Bear in mind that when turning on the Sony PlayStation there is a warning on the screen telling people to read the health information before they play their game. Research does seem to suggest that cell phone transmissions might have an effect on the brainwaves of a person to a significant extent and this can affect the behavior of the person.

Scientists Warn About Electromagnetic Radiation

Scientists have now come together to create awareness about the effects on the health of electromagnetic radiation. Scientists believe that it is linked to cancer and has even been proven to manipulate DNA.

Dr. Martin Blank started the initiative and had since been joined by scientists from around the globe. They are now appealing to the UN about the dangers associated with using cell phones and WiFi. Blank said that radiation is damaging the cells in the body and leads to premature death.

It was said that electronic devices are watching, recording and monitoring people along with having an influence on behavior, feelings, and thoughts. There is no proof right now that the government is using devices to control the minds of people but it is possible. Project MK Ultra was one project of the CIA where it was said that they used LSD to control the minds of humans.

This was just one single program, and it came to light during 1985 that the project consisted or 162 secret programs financed by the CIA and then contracted to universities and research foundations to undertake. Many of the records of the MK Ultra project have been destroyed and never seen by anyone. Perhaps mind control through TV or computer monitor played a part back then.

Proof Faster than Light Black Budget Anti-gravity Technology is Real – Everybody should watch this video

Based on eye-witness accounts and insider information, This video takes the audience through a series of revelations as to how remarkable breakthrough technology, may have been back-engineered from recovered or captured off-world vehicles, enabled aerospace corporations to create a special access only, secret space program and develop a break-away civilization with its own goals and agenda.

We are talking about Special Access Programs (SAP). From these, we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist.

They are better known as ‘deep black programs. Some of these vehicles are capable of flying at Mach 17 and performing maneuvers that seem impossible.

“Very interesting. As a skeptical skeptic, I know the very secrecy of the military can encourage or create wholly made-up stories, or fanciful misinterpretations of observed events.

However, listening to him, he seems like a very good observer. Very articulate and careful in his words. His comments on the Aurora seem genuine. The idea that the Aurora would also be another nuclear delivery device is a bit scary. I agree with him, that the American public should be told if that is the case.

Also, his stories about anti-gravity technology and propulsion are fascinating and genuine, but less convincing. Still not sure how the effects of inertia would be canceled out.

Also, the canceling of the effect of mass would not cancel the effect of air friction, shock waves, and sonic booms. Yet, somehow they were canceled out — so not fully convinced on that.”

Lastly, his speculation about the streaks of light being the images of stars from a ship coming out of hyperspace makes no sense. His view of the streaks was from the side. It does not seem to me that you would see the star streaks of hyperspace from a side view.

Finally, if this stuff is so sensitive, how is he able to talk about it? Does the military not care anymore? Is this stuff, once so secret, now being declassified? His story of how he was casually shown hovering craft, in an apparent breach of security, does not seem credible. Way too casual to be believable.

Conclusion – interesting, seemingly genuine, yet enough questions to cause serious doubts” – Craig
