In a new op-ed, Bilderberg luminary Henry Kissinger admits that U.S. hostility against Iran is not about the threat of nuclear proliferation, but as part of a larger agenda to seize Iranian oil supplies. But the true meaning behind this is lost on Neo-Cons, who are still deluded into thinking that Americans benefit from the imperial looting of natural resources in the middle east.

In an International Herald Tribune op-ed , Former US Secretary of State Kissinger comes clean on the true motives behind the planned military assault on Iran.

“An Iran that practices subversion and seeks regional hegemony – which appears to be the current trend – must be faced with lines it will not be permitted to cross. The industrial nations cannot accept radical forces dominating a region on which their economies depend,” writes Kissinger.

“Iran has legitimate aspirations that need to be respected,” he writes – but those legitimate aspirations do not include control over the oil that the United States and other industrial countries need,” he concludes.

According to the CIA’s world factbook, Iran has the world’s second largest reserves of conventional crude oil at 133 gigabarrels. Adding non-conventional oil, Iran holds 10% of the global oil supply.

In a recent post titled, Did Jesus Endorse Paying Taxes? by spiritual mentor and political activist John Paul Mitchell claims Jesus Christ, as political teacher and activist, never endorsed paying taxes. Here’s what he wrote:

My former mentor use to teach his students that they should pay their taxes. He would quote Jesus to reinforce the teaching of paying taxes. However, he would quote Jesus out of context, isolating one or two verses to support his teaching.

When we examine teachings from the Holy Bible or any Scripture, we should take them in context, both historical and literal.

Paying Temple Taxes 

Matthew 17:24-27 states:

And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute?

He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers?

Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free.

Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

If you were a parent and had your children of 18 years or younger living with you, would you charge them anything to live with you? Would you require they pay a tax to eat the food you bought them for nourishment? Would you require they pay a tax to use their bedroom as a living quarters? Would you charge your children a tax to play in the backyard?

Of course not!

The government is the parent. And the people are the children. It is the responsibility of the government to keep us safe and ensure we have everything we need to live appropriately.

Paying Taxes to the Government 

In Matthew 17:24-27, Jesus says we are not obligated, even by Law, to pay our taxes. If we pay our taxes to our governments or established institutions, then we should do it only as a courtesy. Paying taxes is optional. Read the rest of this entry »

Mystery trader bets on huge downturn that could only be preceded by catastrophe.  

A mystery trader risks losing around $1 billion dollars after placing 245,000 put options on the Dow Jones Eurostoxx 50 index, leading many analysts to speculate that a stock market crash preceded by a new 9/11 style catastrophe could take place within the next month.

The anonymous trader only stands to make money if the market crashes by a third to a half before September 21st, which is when the put options expire. A put option is a financial contract between two parties, the buyer and the writer (seller) of the option, in which the buyer stands to benefit only if the price of the asset falls.
 
“The sales are being referred to by market traders as “bin Laden trades” because only an event on the scale of 9-11 could make these short-sell options valuable,” reports financial blogger Marc Parent .

The trader stands to make around $2 billion from their investment should an event trigger a market crash before the third week in September.

Such a cataclysmic jolt could only happen as a result of two factors, China dumping its vast dollar reserves in reaction to the sub-prime mortgage collapse, which it has threatened to do , or a massive terror attack on the same scale or larger than 9/11. Read the rest of this entry »
