U.S. Government Is Now a Major Counterparty to Wall Street Derivatives

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

According to a study released by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in March of last year, U.S. taxpayers have already injected $187.5 billion into Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, two companies that prior to the 2008 financial crash traded on the New York Stock Exchange, had shareholders and their own Board of Directors while also receiving an implicit taxpayer guarantee on their debt. The U.S. government put the pair into conservatorship on September 6, 2008. The public has been led to believe that the $187.5 billion bailout of the pair was the full extent of the taxpayers’ tab. But in an astonishing acknowledgement on February 25 of this year, the Government Accountability Office, the nonpartisan investigative arm of Congress, issued an audit report of the U.S. government’s finances, revealing that the government’s “remaining contractual commitment to the GSEs, if needed, is $258.1 billion.”

How The American Neoconservatives Destroyed Mankind’s Hopes For Peace

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

When Ronald Reagan turned his back on the neoconservatives, fired them, and had some of them prosecuted, his administration was free of their evil influence, and President Reagan negotiated the end of the Cold War with Soviet President Gorbachev. The military/security complex, the CIA, and the neocons were very much against ending the Cold War as their budgets, power, and ideology were threatened by the prospect of peace between the two nuclear superpowers. I know about this, because I was part of it. I helped Reagan create the economic base for bringing the threat of a new arms race to a failing Soviet economy in order to pressure the Soviets into agreement to end the Cold War, and I was appointed to a secret presidential committee with subpeona power over the CIA. The secret committee was authorized by President Reagan to evaluate the CIA’s claim that the Soviets would prevail in an arms race. The secret committee concluded that this was the CIA’s way of perpetuting the Cold War and the CIA’s importance.

Ben And Jerry Arrested At The Capitol For Protesting Corruption In Politics

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

“The history of our country is that nothing happens until people start putting their bodies on the line and risk getting arrested,” said Ben Cohen. Activist’s, you know which ice cream company to support. Recently, few mainstream media sources have given attention to the Democracy Awakening campaign, which is protesting corruption in the American political system. On the first day, over 400 activists were arrested – too many for the city to lock up behind bars. Since then, protesters have continued to gather from all around the country – including the director of Greenpeace. Joining them was Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen, the co-founders of the popular ice cream brand Ben & Jerry’s. They, along with hundreds of other activists, were arrested as part of the Democracy Awakening’s direct action on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building.

LISTEN TO AN FBI “HONEYPOT” ON THE JOB

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

AFTER ONE WOMAN broke his heart, Khalil Abu Rayyan, a 21-year-old Michigan man, contemplated suicide. Then, when he confided his dark thoughts to another woman, she suggested he steer his violence toward other people. Both women, it turned out, were FBI honeypots, and one of the recorded conversations with Rayyan entered into ongoing court proceedings provides a rare glimpse into how federal informants work.

BOMBSHELL: Panama Papers Expose Clinton’s Elite and Criminal Campaign Donors

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

As her clearly delusional and overtly corrupt supporters cheer her on, Hillary Clinton manages to avoid prosecution, scrutiny and maintains a public persona, thanks largely to the mainstream media, as if she is the nation’s wonderful mother figure. To the Futurama fans out there, however, the only motherly figure Hillary Clinton resembles is the not-so-wonderful Mom, from Momcorp. Still, her ardent supports overlook ties to the banking elite, her complete lack of accomplishments, and her horrific record overseas. But, thanks to the recently leaked Panama Papers, that public persona is getting peeled back layer by layer. Recently leaked names from the papers link the campaign financed-careers to Hillary and the former President Bill Clinton to those who use the offshore tax shelters. Not only do their financiers use unethical offshore tax-havens, but many of them out downright criminals.

47 Percent Of Americans Cannot Even Come Up With $400 To Cover An Emergency Room Visit

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

If you had to make a sudden visit to the emergency room, would you have enough money to pay for it without selling something or borrowing the funds from somewhere? Most Americans may not realize this, but this is something that the Federal Reserve has actually been tracking for several years now. And according to the Fed, an astounding 47 percent of all Americans could not come up with $400 to pay for an emergency room visit without borrowing it or selling something. Various surveys that I have talked about in the past have found that more than 60 percent of all Americans are living to paycheck to paycheck, but I didn’t realize that things were quite this bad for about half the country. If you can’t even come up with $400 for an unexpected emergency room visit, then you are just surviving from month to month by the skin of your teeth. Unfortunately, about half of us are currently in that situation.

Ukraine’s New Speaker Of Parliament Is A Neo-Nazi

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

So much for plausible deniability. While apologists and propagandists for the government in Kiev have tried their best to dismiss concerns about the government’s connection to neo-fascist movements, the jig is undeniably up. The new speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, Andriy Parubiy, is a longtime neo-Nazi activist who was a founder of the national socialist party of Ukraine. The party was recently renamed Svoboda which, along with many neofascists, has seen its political fortunes rise in the wake of the 2014 US-backed coup. Parubiy played a significant role in the coup, serving as commandant of the Euromaidan, where he and other neo-fascists helped violently overthrow the democratically-elected President Viktor Yanukovych. The armed battles with security forces in Kiev were carried out by many people, who would later join the right wing militias that would fight in the Ukraine Civil War.

NYPD cops charged with felonies after beating up mailman

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

Mr. Brown and Mr. Subin said the detectives approached Mr. Baker as he left work on Oct. 21, 2015, in Corona, Queens. Mr. Subin said the encounter was captured on surveillance video from a building across the street, and had been paired with audio from a 911 call from Mr. Baker’s cellphone that recorded what occurred. Mr. Subin said the officers had asked to see his client’s identification and when he asked why he was being stopped, the officers told him he was parked too close to a fire hydrant. Mr. Baker then called 911 to ask for help, but he dropped the phone when the officers began pummeling him, Mr. Subin said.

As public frustration helps sound the death knell for the drug war, its arbitrary laws and policies appear even more absurd. In the latest inexcusable enforcement of an antiquated law, 76-year-old disabled veteran Lee Carroll Brooker will live out what should be his golden years behind bars — for simple possession of cannabis.

Police are allowed to stop motorists who avoid checkpoints

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

The Illinois Supreme court overruled an Appeals court that said making a U-turn to avoid a police checkpoint (roadblock) is not suspicious. "A divided panel of the appellate court agreed and found that, absent any other suspicious activity, the U-turn itself did not provide specific, articulable facts that a criminal offense had been or was about to be committed." "The majority concluded that defendant’s motion to suppress evidence should have been granted and reversed his conviction and remanded the cause to the circuit court for further proceedings."

Saudi Foreign Minister Admits Saudis Created ISIS

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

The Saudis could never reconcile themselves to the US-led invasion of Iraq, not because it toppled Saddam Hussein but because it led to Shia majority rule in an Arab country. When Hosni Mubarak was toppled by Egypt’s popular revolt in 2011, Riyadh accused Mr Obama of betraying a US ally. Saudi perceptions of US complacency in the face of Iran’s advances in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen are a grievance far outweighing western perceptions of Isis jihadism as the main threat in and from the Middle East.

Additional Evidence of Mind-Boggling Fraud Emerges from the New York Primary

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

Alba Guerrero was dumbfounded. She’d arrived at her polling place in Ozone Park, Queens only to be told that she had been registered as a Republican since 2004. That was news to her. She remembers registering to vote for the first time as a Democrat so she could vote for Barack Obama in the general election in 2008. When she recently moved from Manhattan to Ozone Park, in Queens, she re-registered at the DMV, she says, and even checked online on March 9th to be sure she was registered at her new address. But when she showed up to vote for Bernie Sanders at PS63 on Tuesday, she says she was told she couldn’t. New York is a closed primary, where only registered Democrats can vote in the Democratic Primary—and voters had to be registered by last October. She was told—very politely, she wants to make clear—by poll workers to take it up with a judge. She was given a court order in nearby Forest Hills.

Queen Elizabeth turns 90, with $29 billion to her name

Ozmic World News ® - 21 April, 2016 - 06:00

The U.K.’s Queen Elizabeth will ring in her 90th birthday on Thursday, and the monarch has every reason to celebrate. Not only has she already beaten the average U.K. life expectancy by nine years, she’s also among the top 25 richest people in the world. Just accounting for the tangible assets of the U.K. monarchy, the Queen sits on about £20 billion, or $28.8 billion, according to strategy consultancy Brand Finance. That is enough to put her 25th among the world’s richest on the Bloomberg Billionaire list, and ahead of high rollers such as investment guru George Soros, Microsoft MSFT, -0.55% CEO Steve Ballmer and Michael Dell.

IN RECENT MONTHS, PFOA, the perfluorinated chemical formerly used to make Teflon, has been making news again.

Although the chemical was developed and long manufactured in the United States, it’s not just an American problem. PFOA has spread throughout the world.
