A Few Observations

Israeli explanation for the attacks on Gaza defy rational thought. The web has erupted in full-blown outrage. Even the international community has seen fit to make some uncomfortable noises -- all quite diplomatic of course -- though Obama remains silent. "Vociferous" demonstrations have occurred at the Israeli embassy in London and New York, and also in France and Turkey. What? Didn't you see the coverage on teevee?? Conclusion: Some people can still think. Some people still care. Maybe many more people than you know. Would that give you hope? Well then you must never find out from the corporate media.

The Middle East situation can spiral out of control in various ways. Meanwhile, Pakistan is continually compromised. Come to find out that India made agreements with Iran back in January 2003 to use Iranian military bases "in the event of any outbreak of tensions with Pakistan." Just a thought...since Israel has infiltrated India -- made clear by the Mumbai attacks -- does this agreement give Israel a trojan horse opening to infiltrate Iranian military bases via India? Wouldn't it be convenient for Mossad to start something from inside an Iranian military base? What more could one ask for but a totally deniable false flag operation on one's arch enemy? Conclusion: Let us hope the Iranians have the matter well in hand.

Meanwhile, the Madoff scandal continues to percolate. A bankruptcy judge ordered the maximum compensation for "victims" capped at $100,000. This was reported on Christmas eve day. You were probably busy that day and missed it. This is a somewhat hopeful development. Related: Questions have arisen about the credibility of the author of The Madoff Double Bluff, Mohammed Rafiq. His piece first suggested (to my knowledge) the intriguing theory that Madoff admitted to fraud to prevent a process of discovery. It's all here. In addition, another item has been circulating from an alleged Swiss whistleblower which supports the double bluff theory. You can read that here.

For the record I have known Rafiq for 15/20 years. Mohammed Rafiq was a banker but is not a Jewish convert to Islam. In fact he was baptised at Winchester Cathedral when he was a kid.

Neither is he from a line of bankers. His father was an army man of the lower ranks.

Why would somebody want to discredit Mohammed Rafiq? Hmm? Was he too close to the truth? Conclusion: This is far from over.

Final conclusion: It's all connected. The wheels are coming off the bus in this period between the end of bush and the beginning of Obama. Qui bono?

This ties Madoff to at least 3 banker "suicides" over the past month or so.

Alex Widmer, Rene-Thierry Magon de la Villehuchet and Christen Schnor are all directly tied into this Madoff story.

How many more?

No kidding, huh. And I'm sure it's not for nothing. Whatever needs to be covered up is very, very bad.

It's safe to say that they've been caught. But who do you call? Interpol or ghostbusters, or does it matter?

Excellent links.

A. Peasant said...

Thanks, Pete.

You're so right. Who DO we call now? Everyone has been paid to look the other way.

It's almost like we have to wait for them to stick the shivs into each others backs. Cull the herd, as I think they like to say.

It's just starting to get interesting.

In 2007, around 1.7 million American homes went into foreclosure

In 2008, that number was around 2.5 million.

In 2009, that number will surely grow.

When enough Americans are living on the streets and fighting each other for scraps of food in a Dempstey Dumpster, maybe they'll wake up and realize they've been HAD... BIG TIME.

legal mumbo jumbo
