Summer Ends, Jackass Appears

51

In a continuance of our "holiday tradition", Jim Willie stopped by Turdville yesterday to share his thoughts on current events and where he thinks this all headed.

The Jackass was his usual self, even if a bit under the weather. In this podcast, we discuss:

  • Yesterday's announcement by Gazprom that they will begin accepting payment in rubles and yuan
  • The escalation of US and EU sanctions against Russia and how they are failing/backfiring
  • The growing isolation of the US as a economic superpower
  • The eventual emergence of a new global currency regime

This baby clocks in at slightly over 60 minutes so please try to pace yourself. You don't want to overdo it.

Rocks vs Roths

Interesting comment from Jim Willie starting at the 26:58 mark:

"We have a major break going on right now between the Rothschild banks and the Rockefeller energies ..."

Something Ivars has been saying for quite some time now.

Sometimes I take it for granted and shouldn't. But it's life around here half the year.

Another glimpse at 9-11 . . . what really happened . . .

9/11
From a White House and Pentagon aide on the staff of Paul Wolfowitz:

“Once the Israelis got the nuclear pits they double crossed us. No one ever thought that they would be so ruthless to do what they did in using them to destroy the World Trade Center on 9/11.

The problem is the chemical finger print of left over PU-239 fallout
proves that it was made in the USA at Hanford. You can’t hide this. A
simple chemical mass spectrometry test will reveal it. That’s the problem. Half of Washington has known for a decade that 9/11 was an ‘inside job’ done with stolen American weapons”

CONCLUSION
In 2003, the original Department of Energy 9/11 report was released to the White House, select members of the Department of Defense, senior Pentagon staffers and select Federal Judges.

These judges were tasked with “killing” an civil or criminal cases filed related to 9/11.

More than two dozen senior members of Congress were briefed also. For over a decade this cabal, most of whom are still in military, government or judicial posts of some kind, continue to facilitate this betrayal.

Perhaps we can call the US economy a "living doll" :
