Credit Score Fraud & Wages Collusion! Mar 31/14
Hey, it's Mike and I have an important date I'd like you to write down:
Wednesday, April 2nd at 7PM central time.
That's the day a former mortgage broker, Philip Tirone -- who literally went undercover in an attempt to decode the credit score industry -- will be joining me for a live, one-time webinar.
We'll be covering how the banks and the credit bureaus are conspiring together to make you pay more than you should...
...no matter what your credit history.
And because you're a reader, I'd like you to join us absolutely free.
With the strategies Philip uncovered...
...he was able to personally save $500/month, or $6,000 per year on his mortgage,
...he's taught more than 18,000 people how to transform their credit score and received countless "thank-yous" and testimonials,
...one student reduced his house payment by $1,200, another dropped his interest rate from 11 to 7 percent,
...another student upgraded from a Ford to a Mercedes and the payment was only $20 more a month because his new score was so high.
...two New York Times Best Selling authors have vouched for Philip, and his course 7 Steps to a 720 Credit Score regularly sells for $1,000.
And he's joining us, for free, on Wednesday, April 2nd.
But you have to register to save your spot, and registration is open NOW:

And I recommend registering right now so that it's done with, off your mind and off your to-do list.
Because you won't want to miss this.

High Tech companies collude to fix wages?
I believe this is why all business groups and associations have kept people in poverty for low minimum wages for decades Tami
JESSICA DESVARIEUX, TRNN PRODUCER: Welcome to The Real News Network. I'm Jessica Desvarieux in Baltimore.
Some of Silicon Valley's biggest names, like Apple's Steve Jobs and Google's Eric Schmidt, were directly involved in a wage-fixing agreement between their companies. That's according to analysis of confidential internal Google and Apple memos reviewed and published by the news site PandoDaily. They found that it wasn't just Google and Apple who were guilty, but dozens of other tech companies were also involved, affecting the salaries of more than a million employees.
We're now joined by the journalist who broke the story, Mark Ames. He is a senior editor at PandoDaily, and he joins us now from New York.
Thank you for joining us, Mark.
MARK AMES, SENIOR EDITOR, PANDODAILY: Thanks for having me on.
DESVARIEUX: So, Mark, give us a sense of the timeline of this story. Walk us through what happened.
AMES: Well, the actual genesis, the earliest genesis of this, oddly enough, is George Lucas of Lucasfilm, who runs a sort of, you know, highly specialized special effects studio in Northern California. And when Steve Jobs back in the mid '80s, he bought Pixar, which was spun off from Lucasfilm, they came to an agreement, 'cause George Lucas said he didn't like competition, he didn't like having to bid for workers and bid up their wages, so they had an agreement not to poach each other's or cold call or recruit each other's employees, in order to keep labor costs down. So that's the early, early genesis.
So cut now to 2005. The tech industry's starting to really boil over again, and in particular, wages for tech engineers and programmers and so on are skyrocketing through the roof and cutting into earnings. So Steve Jobs goes to Google, which is the big high-flying company at the time in 2005, goes to Google's Eric Schmidt and Sergey Brin and basically says, you guys are recruiting my guys. If you don't stop it, we're going to go to war. And generally war in Apple's Steve Jobs' mind means patent infringement lawsuits, frivolous or otherwise.

Welfare Handouts to Fortune 100 Mar 30/14
March 19, 2014 See how the CAFRE fraud works folks in USA Canada and around the world, there should be no toll bridges or highways anywhere on the planet! Tami!
Most of us are aware that the government gives mountains of cash to powerful corporations in the form of tax breaks, grants, loans and subsidies--what some have called "corporate welfare." However, little has been revealed about exactly how much money Washington is forking over to mega businesses.
A new venture called Open the Books, based in Illinois, was founded with a mission to bring transparency to how the federal budget is spent. And what they found is shocking: between 2000 and 2012, the top Fortune 100 companies received $1.2 trillion from the government. That doesn't include all the billions of dollars doled out to housing, auto and banking enterprises in 2008-2009, nor does it include ethanol subsidies to agribusiness or tax breaks for wind turbine makers.
What Open the Book's forthcoming report does reveal is that the most valuable contracts between the government and private firms were for military procurement deals, including Lockheed Martin ($392 billion), General Dynamics ($170 billion), and United Technologies ($73 billion).
After military contractors, $21.8 billion was granted out to corporate recipients in the form of direct subsidies; literally transfers of cash from the pockets of Americans to major corporations. The biggest winners were General Electric (GE) ($380 million), followed by General Motors (GM) ($370 million), Boeing (BA) ($264 million), ADM ($174 million) and United Technologies ($160 million).
$8.5 billion in federally subsidized loans were also doled out to giant oil companies Chevron and Exxon Mobile, and $1 billion went directly to massive agri-business Archer Daniels Midland.
Of course, the banks also got their piece of the pie: $10 billion in federal insurance went to Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase, not including any of the 2008 bailout money. Walmart enjoyed its share of federal insurance backing as well.
Thanks to Open the Books, the curtain has been lifted and the whole country can now witness the great suckling of corporate America. As Open the Books founder Adam Andrzejewski put it: "Mitt Romney had it wrong: When it comes to the Fortune 100, it's 99%, not 47%, on some form of the government's gravy train."

Facebook spying recognition & NSA Mar 22/14
Facebook's New 'DeepFace' Program Is Just As Creepy As It Sounds
The Huffington Post | by Dino Grandoni
Posted: 03/18/2014 12:59 pm EDT
Facebook owns the world's largest photo library, and it now has the technology to match almost all the faces within it. Yes, even the ones you don't tag.
Facebook announced last week that it has developed a program called "DeepFace," which researchers say can determine whether two photographed faces are of the same person with 97.25 percent accuracy.
According to Facebook, humans put to the same test answer correctly 97.53 percent of the time -- only a quarter of a percent better than Facebook's software.
The takeaway: Facebook has essentially caught up to humans when it comes to remembering a face. The program was developed by three in-house Facebook researchers and a professor at Tel Aviv University.
As an example, the developers show in a paper on the program that DeepFace can successfully recognize that this is Academy Award winner Sylvester Stallone.
Here's another example of the program recognizing who we think is Calista Flockhart (a.k.a. "Ally McBeal"). We frankly find it disturbing that we can't tell and it can:
Already, Facebook's facial recognition software is able to suggest friends to tag when you upload a photo, using information like the distance between eyes, nose and eyes in profile pictures and already tagged photos. But those results are much more inaccurate than DeepFace, which uses techniques from deep learning, a field of artificial intelligence specializing in understanding irregular types of data.
In order to better match faces, the researchers created a "neural network" in its software meant to imitate animals' central nervous system.
For now the program, first reported on by the MIT Technology Review, is only a research project and will not affect the 1.23 billion people who regularly use Facebook.
But CEO Mark Zuckerberg has expressed deep interest in building out Facebook's artificial intelligence capabilities when speaking to investors in the past. His ambition actually stretches beyond facial recognition to analyzing the text of status updates and comments to decipher mood and context.
There's a business purpose behind all this intellectual enthusiasm: Understanding all the information we post on the social network is central to Facebook's business model, which leverages data to personalize ads so you'll be more likely to click on them.
Facebook's growing ability to recognize you when a friend uploads photos from a vacation together has caught the attention of privacy advocates and government officials alike. For example, more privacy-conscious European governments have already forced Facebook to delete all of its facial recognition data there.
NSA surveillance program reaches ‘into the past’ to retrieve, replay phone calls
Video: The National Security Agency has built a surveillance system capable of recording “100 percent” of a foreign country’s telephone calls, according to people with direct knowledge of the effort and documents supplied by former contractor Edward Snowden. The Post's Ashkan Soltani, who broke the story with Barton Gellman, explains the Obama administration's recent guidance on bulk collection.
By Barton Gellman and Ashkan Soltani, Published: March 18 E-mail the writers
The National Security Agency has built a surveillance system capable of recording “100 percent” of a foreign country’s telephone calls, enabling the agency to rewind and review conversations as long as a month after they take place, according to people with direct knowledge of the effort and documents supplied by former contractor Edward Snowden.
A senior manager for the program compares it to a time machine — one that can replay the voices from any call without requiring that a person be identified in advance for surveillance.
Explore the documents
This cover slide comes from a weekly briefing deck by the NSA's Special Source Operations team, which is responsible for deploying and maintaining bulk collection methods.
This is an excerpt from a weekly briefing memo from the NSA's Special Source Operations team that describes collection efforts and defines many agency terms.
In this excerpt from the FY13 Congressional Budget Justification, the addition of a country to MYSTIC efforts is mentioned.
Obama and changes at NSA
On Jan. 17, President Obama called for significant changes to the way the NSA collects and uses telephone records of U.S. citizens. Read a transcript of his remarks.
Here is the report from the five-member Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies, which contains 40-plus recommendations on the NSA. Read it.
The voice interception program, called MYSTIC, began in 2009. Its RETRO tool, short for “retrospective retrieval,” and related projects reached full capacity against the first target nation in 2011. Planning documents two years later anticipated similar operations elsewhere.
In the initial deployment, collection systems are recording “every single” conversation nationwide, storing billions of them in a 30-day rolling buffer that clears the oldest calls as new ones arrive, according to a classified summary.
The call buffer opens a door “into the past,” the summary says, enabling users to “retrieve audio of interest that was not tasked at the time of the original call.” Analysts listen to only a fraction of 1 percent of the calls, but the absolute numbers are high. Each month, they send millions of voice clippings, or “cuts,” for processing and long-term storage.

Ben Fulford Global Reports! Mar 18/14
THIS IS INCREDIBLE AND AN INSULT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Jack Lew made announcements today 3/17/14 per the New Gold Backed USA Currency and was shown in Brazil and Mexico. When is the Cabal Puppet Jackie Boy going to do the announcement on TV here? Folks you all got slapped in the face!
RV ANNOUNCEMENT WAS MADE – TIME FOR USA RELEASE ---- WHAT SAY YOU Jackie Boy?
And where is our mass media about this?
Cabal backs down after threat of blockade of cabal controlled countries
Posted by Benjamin
March 18, 2014
The high level brinkmanship surrounding the imminent collapse of the petro-dollar and the cabal behind it reached new levels in the past week, culminating with a BRICS ultimatum that “Oil, gas, food and other resources would cease being imported into both the US and NATO,” unless they backed off on their Ukraine offensive, according to a Russian government source.
There were also threats made to shut down the US electricity grid with an Electromagnetic Pulse Weapon, as reported by Dick Cheney, or direct attacks on vulnerable parts of the grid, threatened by militia forces, unless the cabal backs down.
The cabal controlled military elements counter-acted with threats to release bio-weapons, shut down world air-traffic and otherwise cause trouble.
At that point, to prevent a spiral that would knock civilization out of kilter, cooler heads prevailed and attempts to reach a compromise over control of the petro-dollar and Euro systems are now being made, according to sources directly involved in the negotiations.
The rapidly evolving situation in the Ukraine, the threat of war on Qatar by Saudi Arabia as well as the vanished Malaysian airliner, as well as many other incidents, are all linked to these negotiations, multiple sources agree.
In the case of the Ukraine, a United Nations Approved international treaty signed by Russia, the US and NATO stipulates that if any country violates the sovereignty of the Ukraine, then UN member countries are obliged to cease all trade with the violating countries. Since the Russians have incontrovertible evidence the legitimate Ukrainan government was over thrown by mercenaries financed by the privately owned Federal Reserve Board, their United States of America Corporation subsidiary and NATO members, all of these countries would be subject to a total trade embargo.
The attempts by the cabal controlled media and cabal slave governments to brand Russia as the aggressor in this situation are not fooling anybody.
In any case, even as the cabal controlled corporate propaganda media tries to distract everybody with lies over the situation in the Ukraine, as well as speculating endlessly about the missing Malaysian airliner, they are totally ignoring the defection from the cabal by the Gulf oil countries led by Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other gulf countries are threatening to cut off all trade with Qatar and possibly declare war unless that country shuts down Al Jazeera and kicks out cabal fronts like the Rand Corporation and the Brookings Institute. The only major Western corporate media outlet to report this huge development, as far as this writer can tell, has been Agence France Press or AFP.
The Rand Corporation is the same bunch of psychopaths who proposed a “war with a medium sized country like Japan or Brazil” as a way to revive the US economy. The earthquake that hit Christchurch New Zealand several years ago came immediately after Thad Allen of the Rand Corporation and about a dozen congressmen asked for the South Island of New Zealand to be used as a home for 1 million Satanic cabal members and were turned down. Qatar is also where the cabal bases many of its murder by drone operations.

CIA Wars Mar 13/14
How do we stop these Covet Illegal CIA Wars - and call for accountability.
Stop buying into the LIES of the CIA’s Pied Pipers, that lead us into the dungeons.
1. Becoming AWARE – Prerequisite First Step
2. Holding to the Truth
3. Educating the Public
Added Comment: In view of the fact that the CIA is once again bringing us to the brink GLOBAL WAR – with yet another series of Illegal, Covert CIA Initiated Conflicts - destabilizing and destroying one country after country under false pretenses, John Stockwell’s speech - revelations of the history of CIA operations - will give us much clearer insights of what and who is really running US foreign and domestic policies and how it is intentionally and criminally destabilizing and destroying the whole globe, at home and abroad, with seeming impunity.
Iraq, Afghanistan Libya, Syria, (Iran), Africa, Venezuela, Central America, and presently the Ukraine are all CIA instigated insurrections/wars of destabilization and destruction – the wolf’s actions camouflaged in phony sheep’s clothing of “democracy and liberation” – propaganda that far too many blinded and gullible people swallow, believe, justify and regurgitate.
Hopefully this background information of CIA history will help us in discerning the lies that the “controlled media” disseminates, parroting and regurgitating the propaganda of the CIA Pied Pipers.
The Secret Wars of the CIA

Ben Fulford Asia Report Mar 10/14
Nazis and Zionists are simultaneously suing for peace and making new threats
Posted by benjamin
March 11, 2014
The fighting between American Academi (formerly Blackwater) mercenaries and Russian special forces in the Ukraine and the downing of a Malaysian airline last week are but a background to ongoing high stakes negotiations about the future of this planet. These violent incidents are also a backlash against a snowballing purge of Nazi/Zionist zealots that has now extended to Saudi Arabia and other gulf oil kingdoms after they banned the Nazi Muslim Brotherhood. Since they have already been purged from Egypt this means their last base in the Middle East, and last source of oil money, is Qatar, home to the Al Jazeera propaganda network.
The threats to cause terrorist attacks around China to “sky rocket,” made before the Malaysian air disaster, came from a source using the 215 Philadelphia area code. This is the same source that predicted in advance the turmoil in the Ukraine. Philadelphia is the base of Fethullah Gulen, a senior proponent of the cabal’s planned “one world religion.” Since Gulen is involved in sending Tartar activists to contribute to the turmoil in the Ukraine, his organization is suspected of being somehow involved in the latest attack. Turkey is the original home of the Sabbatean mafia that created the Thule society and Nazism.
According to American Defense Intelligence Agency and MI5 sources there is a Nazi submarine base in New Guinea disguised as a gold mine.
This is one of secret Asian operations bases used to stage the 311 nuclear and tsunami terror attack against Japan three years ago tomorrow. It may well be where the attack on the Malaysian airlines flight originated.
In any case, the troubles in the Ukraine and Malaysia and probably soon elsewhere too, are just a back-drop to ongoing negotiations between several large factions. A representative of the military industrial complex contacted the White Dragon Society last week and laid out several conditions including a threat to wage all-out war if oil is made obsolete by free energy technology and a request by the NSA types to be allowed to continue with their program of all out surveillance.
The WDS said that free energy technology would only be allowed a first for projects the current oil business model cannot carry out, such as turning deserts green with desalinated sea water and heating up the arctic and Antarctic. Oil would then be phased out gradually as the oil industry shifted to the business of creating new eco-systems. The oil industry people asked that they be allowed to continue expanding their hydrocarbon business using natural gas and this was considered a viable option.
The NSA types were told they should at least stay out of people’s bed-rooms since government has no role in the bedrooms of the nation. They were also told that some things will always remain secret no matter how hard they try to find out.
