In an interview conducted for a journalist’s PhD thesis, Germany’s longest-serving postwar chancellor said that he would have lost any popular vote on the euro by an overwhelming majority.
“I knew that I could never win a referendum in Germany,” he said. “We would have lost a referendum on the introduction of the euro. That’s quite clear. I would have lost and by seven to three.”
The interview was conducted by Jens Peter Paul, a German journalist in 2002, the year when the Deutsche Mark was replaced by euro notes and coins, but has only been published now.
In it, Mr Kohl describes adopting the euro as an emblem of the European project, which he said had prevented war on the continent. Born in 1930, Mr Kohl’s politics were shaped by his country’s history in the 1930s and 1940s; his final years in power were focused on promoting European unity....

Today we talk of geo-politics and the freedom of information. But what is happening today technically (i.e. politically) began on 12 December 2008, though some say September of that year, but it took four years for the shock waves to reach Europe and America. The issue relates to Julian Assange, Wikileaks, and the Republic of Ecuador. Mind you, it was assumed in the entire American continent, Australia, and Europe that the world was the same as ten years ago. But the world does not work that way anymore.
On August 3 in New York, Ecuador became the first nation in the Americas and only nation in the Western world since 1948, to apply the concept of “immoral debt” or the political and technical refusal to pay foreign debts because they were made by previous governments through corruption, in violation of constitutional laws and requirements.
Bush said that the US was even ready for a ‘military option to safeguard US interests.’ The next morning, the powerful New York law firm of Goldberg & Goldberg submitted that there was a legal precedent for Ecuador’s action. Six hours later, the US gave up and called on the international community to challenge the legitimacy of the concept of “immoral debt”.
Interestingly, the legal precedent was dated 4 Jan 2003, and signed by George Bush. Yep. This happened in Iraq, which at that time was’technically’ an American possession since it was occupied by US forces and the interim government was not yet recognized by the UN. Saddam Hussein had left debts of 250 billion euros (40 billion euros against Italy, thanks to the transactions concluded Tareq Aziz, deputy to Hussein and an ally of Vatican’s Opus Dei), which the US erased by applying the concept of “immoral debt”, thus creating the recent historical precedent.

With the news that two senior American officers have been murdered while inside an official Afghanistan government office building by someone who was able to do it and just walk away tells us something about this conflict.
It’s been more than 10 years since America and its allies threw the Taliban out of power. We screwed up by taking our eyes off the ball so we could whip up a phony war in Iraq. This allowed bin Laden to relocate to Pakistan. This allowed the Taliban to regroup and retake much of the country. Before President Obama came into office and we started taking Afghanistan seriously again, the disregard President Bush showed for clearing out the viper’s nest of Taliban and their supporters will go down in the history books as one of the biggest failures of a long list of failures for which his woebegotten administration will be forever stained.

Many horrors! China microblog translate poorly English into. Say Beloved Successor of Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea Kim Jong Un dead from dying after assassin kill. No verification. Checking.
OK, let’s not get all “Debbie Spenditnow” here… but the Chinese microblogging community is all agog over rumors about the alleged assassination of Kim Jong-un, the recently installed latest “Dear Leader” of North Korea, a promotion occasioned by the convenient death of long-time dictator Kim Jong-il, who became dictator of that reclusive nation after the convenient death of his father and the nation’s founder, Kim Il-sung.
Google Translate doesn’t do that good of a job with Chinese, but let’s see what they’re saying on the microblog. (Note, as Dave Barry is famous for saying, “I am not making this up.”)

As the protests throughout the Arab world increase and Dictators try to hold on to power by any violent means possible it's amazing how people can still maintain hope. Syrian President Bashar al-Assad like many leaders before him may have not actually signed a deal with the Devil but with his actions against his own people resulting in over 6000 deaths he might just as well have. In the long run he will not prevail and history will add him to the long list of Tyrants that have tried to repress the human spirit. The challenge facing the rest of the world is how to intervene without ending up in a Third World War. With an Election Year taking top priority in the United States and a suspicion of U.S motives concerning any action in the Middle East, the actions or inaction of the Arab League and China and Russia strongly opposed to almost anything that they have no say in, the solution to the Syrian situation will most definitely be a messy one. I'm always cautiously optimistic about most things so I have to rely on what little faith I have that things will not continue to escalate until a Third World War breaks out. Even in our darkest hours we sometimes manage to prevent the worst from becoming the apocalyptic. History will tell if my optimism pays off.

The tent in which he has always loved living helped to spread an image of himself at odds with that of a
businessman in a suit and tie. Yet, after his death, it turns out that Muammar Gaddafi had exported a lot of money and may have been even richer than the dictator of the planet by adding the value of current accounts, real estate, corporate and investment reserves of gold scattered around the world .
According to wrote the Los Angeles Times , which uses anonymous sources Libyan administration, in fact, the treasure stolen by Colonel abroad during 42 years at the helm of Libya, between 1969 and 2011, could be equal to monstrous figure of $ 200 billion , equal to about 144 billion euros ..... see more on http://www.thivest.com/?page=1A face with graffiti of the Libyan dictator photographed on a wall in Benghazi The... more

The current, daily more bizarre international situation, however, how absurd it may sound, is comparable to the days and the weeks, the years before French Revolution. A desperate financial crisis, which was self-made, knitted, an always deferred reform, some sort a blockade, not only on the life worthy issue of incumbent climate changes of the world, this progress could have served all people. And all, what is already bitter enough, history has repeated, this time, in our days.
However, the smug, greedy bankers, shady business leaders, strange political, some of the Constitution completely indifferent currents, an all-dominant intelligence, an uncontrollable power gadget, which acts apparently out of a never-ending, infinite resource against a hostile, every day potentiating crisis. Once it is the digital spirit of Osama bin-Laden, his invisible terrorist assessed successor, El-Kaida. Then suddenly, because they can get hold of one, new, sudden enemy.
The US-Adminstration, who distracts from other problems that affect us all, found the foe: Julian Paul Assange and his organization Wikileaks. Now Julian Paul Assange, who is declared a public enemy number 1,only because he and his organisation published true exhibits, for all the people, made them accessible to many nations. This time it's not the French people, that once so hated Marie-Antoinette. But it's the same situation, only more than 200 years later. Jean-Jacques Rousseau quoted, not without self-interest, in his autobiography "The Confessions" (from the French original text): « Je me rappelai le pis d'une grande princesse-all à qui l'on disait que les paysans n'avaient pas de pain , et qui répondit: qu'il mangent de la brioche. »
Translation: "Finally I remembered the makeshift of a great princess, the people said, they have had no bread, and she answered: Let them eat cakes!"
Normally, one would be attempted to believe, that even the powerful leader of this world would have learned something of all its ineffable authority, no, it's how it was. How it used to be. Also in the Bastille in Paris they were quite happy to tortured extensively, the same in the many outposts all over France in those days. Mainly people, who opened their mouth, rebelled against the autocratic system of that time, degenerate royalist lords, the usual inhabitants of Versailles. Many people on this wide, wonderful world, even in the years of growing pluralism, are still fed instead of bread with weapons, fear and hopelessness, with death and disease. Probably this is the cake of the 21 his century.
It's never about the good-hearted people of the American, for what they gave to the world. These many nations, that have been created with sweat and blood to one. The GIs liberated Germany from the Nazis, they gave them hope by JFK, "I am a Berliner". Everyone knows. The spirit of liberty, who flew to the moon, proved pioneering spirit. America gave us so many things, not only chewing gum, large automotive dreams, Hollywood, Hamburger culture, the joy of swing, rock and roll were only a few of those. For many the new home, Ellis Island, the Empire -State Building, New York, San Francisco, cities, settlements of superlatives were created. People, great personalities were produced in America.
However, Wikileaks and their founder Julian Paul Assange, stormed as in a contemporary avatar of the modern history the new Bastille, the U.S. government, all the evil, dictatory thoughts, sometimes even ridiculous manic minutes of the oh-so-usual-eloquent diplomats.
Now, Americans should ask: Why is that? Some officials may not support everything in the own apparatus, the policy of the last decade? Maybe they can not agree with their conscience? There are obvious documents from the lion's hideaway. Why does a slightly unworldly Australian, tireless globetrotter turns out be the beginning of a new, but overwhelming revolution? He stormed the political goal and haphazard Tuileries, carried his idea, as Marie Charpointier the Tricolour. Assange overcame the enlightenment thinking and politicization. Lived the displaced, forgotten problems. Someone must do so, without doubt. Back to the people, to the genuine nations in power. It was long enough the people of this world, the incumbent, closed-class used own made policies for the financial, senseless wars, for further environmental destruction for the very personal goals of the installed disgusting satellites. Plenty of willing vassals, an inscrutable network of secret diplomacy, abductions, torture, murder, intrigue and life in apparently undemocratic manners. Everything in the disguise of higher goals that many, most people on this planet, could not understand anymore.
There occurred a certain, even some 30 years ago, unthinkable mechanism, which has now thrown the world in an undeclared cyber war by some organisation called Anonymous. They can ´t stop by militant attacks, like in cyber guerrilla warfare, the incredible criminalization of Paul Julian Assange, just show the front, allow all involved parties to proceed further. Radical U.S. politicians, or those who think they are, autocratic self actors, the mislead American dream of prosecutor, judge and executioner in one focused person. The hatred is a paralysing, serves unconditionally not to all the people of the world. It is time that America takes position, not in front of the politicians, however to the people of this earth.
For others, such as sadists, Assange already is one, who is walking the green mile, towards to the rooms of their so ugly executions. Solved by now in the closed, political world. Assange seems to be on the tube of lethal injection. The making of is just made now. Julian Paul Assange is the worldwide martyrs. Now, even that he has not earned. Not yet.
Systematically, all in years, decades exploited mature channels are used to stop the truth, which Assange published on Wikileaks. To cover up.
What shall be prevented or what should be avoided?
Does anyone in the United States fear the political meltdown? The steady moral slump of the former superpower, the former living and giving democracy in a meaningless international community which declined by some hateful operators, a system, that was installed after 9/11. A war government that sought their own questionable authority.
Has Wikileaks papers or documents that tell a different, but much more logical, credible truth about the following, to this day occurred events?
The question is: why the superpower is still at war? Why the spirit in a bottle, bin Laden, has not been presented a regular court? He may comment on the allegations. Why not? A state, that clearly has the smartest military in the world, the god-like CIA and other servants is surely enabled to find, locate an Osama- bin- Laden.

Especially under the current international situation, it was for us very important to add something to the killings and the general conscience of the civilized world.
This book should help to ensure, that the people who are struggling in these days to find the natural freedom are strengthened.
Human rights are like the air we breathe, like the water we drink. The bread, which we eat.
We, who live in freedom, must support the uncertain, not to leave their lives in the storm of needed revolution.
If we want to overthrow barbarians such as Gaddafi, Kim etc. , then for us all the only solution is to support the people who live in utter poverty of politics.
We got only this planet. We have to achieve freedom. Democracy is our greatest challenge for the new century. For our and the next generation.
It must be clear to the dictators, that life offers no possibility for them, except the way to live democratic principles.
For this is the beginning of the fair distribution of all our efforts on this planet. We want to create something, that will be worth living for future generations. We all bear responsibility for one another and for an ordered together.

It's official: as Egypt was burning, Mubarak was stealing the gold. When we reported, presumably jokingly, two weeks ago that the Egyptian Central Bank may have been plundered, it turns out we were pretty much accurate once again. For all those wondering why Mubarak was refusing to hand over power for the past two weeks as hundreds of people were dying, we now have the answer - it was all just to make sure he transferred his assets, especially gold, to safe regimes (in the process paying tens of millions in commissions to that most noble of jobs - the banker class). The Telegraph reports: "A US official told The Sunday Telegraph: "Hosni Mubarak used the 18 days it took for protesters to topple him to shift his vast wealth into untraceable accounts overseas, Western intelligence sources have said...There's no doubt that there will have been some frantic financial activity behind the scenes. They can lose the homes and some of the bank accounts, but they will have wanted to get the gold bars and other investments to safe quarters. The Mubaraks are understood to have wanted to shift assets to Gulf states where they have considerable investments already – and, crucially, friendly relations. The United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia have frequently been mentioned as likely final destinations for Mr Mubarak and possibly his family."As usual, we remind readers that according to the World Gold Council, Egypt had 75.6 tonnes of gold at the end of 2010. Should this number not be reduced following Mubarak's plundering, we will know just how pervasive Tungsten is in the world central banking cartel.
-------------------- //~// ----------------------
From Telegraph: ---
The former Egyptian president is accused of amassing a fortune of more than £3 billion - although some suggest it could be as much as £40 billion - during his 30 years in power. It is claimed his wealth was tied up in foreign banks, investments, bullion and properties in London, New York, Paris and Beverly Hills.
In the knowledge his downfall was imminent, Mr Mubarak is understood to have attempted to place his assets out of reach of potential investigators.
On Friday night Swiss authorities announced they were freezing any assets Mubarak and his family may hold in the country's banks while pressure was growing for the UK to do the same. Mr Mubarak has strong connections to London and it is thought many millions of pounds are stashed in the UK.
But a senior Western intelligence source claimed that Mubarak had begun moving his fortune in recent weeks.
"We're aware of some urgent conversations within the Mubarak family about how to save these assets," said the source, "And we think their financial advisers have moved some of the money around. If he had real money in Zurich, it may be gone by now."
-------------------- //~// ----------------------
Perhaps Goldman Sachs can take a proactive PR step and disclose to the population that the flow trade-frontrunning hedge fund had nothing to do with facilitating the transfer of Mubarak's billions in stolen wealth from point A to point B. And perhaps all other banks can follow suit. Either that, or we can all just wait for Mubarak's sworn deposition when he is put on trial for crimes against the Egyptian people some time in 1-2 months. Doing text searches for "Goldman" in those thousand page PDFs will be breeze...

Although Egypt is in revolution, what are they revolting towards?!? It appears that they are simply going to replace their current bad government, with "good" government through democracy. Although this is a step in the right direction, they haven't quite gone far enough. Egypt should end government altogether, as violence, like Joe Biden says in this clip, is unnecessary.

The Obama Deception is a hard-hitting film that completely destroys the myth that Barack Obama is working for the best interests of the American people.
The Obama phenomenon is a hoax carefully crafted by the captains of the New World Order. He is being pushed as savior in an attempt to con the American people into accepting global slavery.
We have reached a critical juncture in the New World Order’s plans. It’s not about Left or Right: it’s about a One World Government. The international banks plan to loot the people of the United States and turn them into slaves on a Global Plantation.

Police State 4: The Rise of FEMA
March 19, 2010
The United States is now recognized globally as one of the most oppressive police states on earth. And it’s only getting worse.
POLICE STATE 4 chronicles the sickening depths to which our republic has fallen. Veteran documentary filmmaker Alex Jones conclusively proves the existence of a secret network of FEMA camps, now being expanded nationwide. The military industrial complex is transforming our once free nation into a giant prison camp. A cashless society control grid, constructed in the name of fighting terrorism, was actually built to enslave the American people. Body scanners, sound cannons, citizen spies, staged terror and cameras on every street corner — it’s only the beginning of the New World Order’s hellish plan. This film exposes how the “Continuity of Government” program has established an all powerful shadow state.
