Ukraine’s ceasefire jeopardised by attack on military plane..Putin renounces right to send troops to Ukraine

Follow The Money

Vladimir Putin visits St. Petersburg

The shaky ceasefire in Ukraine has been thrown into peril after pro-Moscow separatists shot down a Ukrainian military helicopter, killing nine servicemen.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko warned he may end the weeklong truce ahead of time. The deadly attack came a day after the rebels vowed to respect the cease-fire, which began last Friday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin, meanwhile, played the peacemaker, urging Ukraine to extend the truce and sit down for talks with the rebels. He also moved to rescind a parliamentary resolution authorising him to use the Russian military in Ukraine.

Poroshenko declared the ceasefire as part of a plan to end two months of fighting between government troops and pro-Russian insurgents in the east. The violence, which erupted after the Kremlin’s lightning annexation of Crimea in March, has left hundreds dead.

The ceasefire has been repeatedly broken by sporadic clashes, and it was violated again on…

The Dubai stock market crashed

Follow The Money


The Dubai stock market crashed today, with the main index falling over 6.5%, after being down 8% at one point.

The market has been in a bear market even before today, having fallen about 20% over the last month.

One big negative driver has been Arabtec, a big construction company, whose shares have been plunging amid layoff rumours. The stock is down 50% this month.

The former chief executive officer and largest shareholder of Arabtec Holding, a Dubai-listed construction company, is considering offers to buy his stake amid a major decline in the company’s stock price sparked by uncertainty about its aggressive growth strategy and ownership structure.

Hasan Ismaik, who stepped down as chief executive officer last week after building up a 28.85% holding in Arabtec, said by phone Tuesday that his stock could be for sale at the right price, likely to a large foreign construction…

How Barclays Got Caught Red-Handed With “Pernicious HFT Fraud”

peoples trust toronto

First it was gold, now it is HFT – poor Barclays just can’t get away with any market rigging crime these days.

Remember when in the aftermath of the most recent Michael Lewis-inspired HFT scandal, one after another HFT and Dark Pool exchange swore up and down they know, see, hear and certainly trade no predatory algo evil? Turns out they lied, as usual.

As was reported earlier, the NY AG just charged Barclays with fraud (or rather, as Schneiderman called it repeatedly “pernicious fraud”) for not only misrepresenting the nature of its dark pool to clients, but also exposing them to numerous “toxic” and predatory HFT algos – another word for algos which frontran orderflow either within the Barclays dark pool, Barclays LX – arguably the second largest venue in the US second only to Credit Suisse’ Crossfinder – or on different lit and unlit venues as…

Citi Warns US Equities Are Facing A Pullback

peoples trust toronto

US equity indices are showing signs that a pullback may be developing, Citi’s FX Technicals group notes, as the S&P 500 Index, the NASDAQ Composite Index and the Dow Industrials Index all posted bearish key days yesterday. A short-term correction on the order of 3%-6% may be developing on the back of this.

The Dow Transports Index, which has been the leading US equity Index this year, has already been showing signs of stress as well. The VIX Index is also turning higher from low levels and should head up towards at least 14% if not 18% if the pullback in equities materializes.

The US S&P 500 Index posted a bearish key day at the trend highs yesterday. (The last bearish key day at trend highs back in April was followed by a high to low move of -4.4%.) Daily momentum also turned lower and negative momentum divergence…

Eric Williams addresses the characterization of birth certificates as being legal fictions

2012: What's the 'real' truth?

Alfred notes that  – 

Your statement/s have been published at:

Hi Alfred [Lambremont Webre],

Something has been bothering me about your characterization of birth certificates as being legal fictions.  I had never considered such to be the case.  Birth certificates are created as the record of the birth of a human baby and are, for the most part, an accurate record of the parents and the name assigned to the child.  None of that is fictional.  The fact that the child contributes nothing to the creation thereof and has no ability to acquire personal knowledge of the creation at the time of creation does not cause the creation to be fictional. The fact that the birth certificates are recorded with the state is not fictional.  The fact that the names entered thereon are valuable is not fictional.  The fact that parents do not enter an ownership claim of the name entered on…

When The People On Earth Are Free

What type of games will be played when the People on Earth are Free?
Over the years I have searched for new games that reveal the shift of consciousness and awareness. I am still searching…
Perhaps some readers have found new games that exemplifies this awareness, if so please share those games with us.
I think that some past games from the early years of computing may have some elements of a post empire world with personal sovereignty written in the story line, but today games are mostly build a empire, destroy competitors, and be the ruler of everything meme.
The gameful exceptions are largely virtual-life (such as farming and sports games), puzzle, and card games.

I expect to see a massive population of new games that embodies the personal sovereignty and the emerging self-organizing collaborative meme embracing and nurturing freedom.
Imagining worlds without governments may be too difficult a…

9th Circuit (Federal) Allows Quiet Title and Damages for Wrongful Filing of False Documents

Livinglies's Weblog

Hat Tip to Beth Findsen who is a good friend and a great lawyer in Scottsdale, Az and who provided this case to me this morning. I always recommend her in Arizona because her writing is spectacular and her courtroom experience invaluable.

This case needs to be analyzed further. Robert Hager (CONGRATULATIONS TO HAGER IN RENO, NV) et al has succeeded in getting at least a partial and significant victory over the MERS system, and voiding robosigned documents as being forged per se. I disagree that a note and mortgage, once split, can be reunified by mere execution of an instrument. They are avoiding the issue just like the “lost note” issue. The rules of evidence and pleading have always required great factual specificity on the path of transactions leading up to the point where the note was lost or transferred. This Court dodged that bullet for now. Without evidence…

The Future of Money and Business – Part 1

Welcome to a new world. A world where money does not exist and everyone lives in a Utopian society.

But not quite yet.

It will take time and an evolution of consciousness to get there. And, it will require us to open our minds to some important and startling facts about this thing called ‘money.’

Momentous EU Summit This Week

peoples trust toronto

There are two big issues for the EU heads of state meeting at the end of this week: A review of the fiscal plans and structural reforms of member countries and the appointment of the EC President, following the recent EU parliamentary elections. To the chagrin of many observers, especially in Berlin, the attempt some countries, like France and Italy to link the two issues is troubling, to say the least.

French and Italian officials seek greater flexibility over the EU’s fiscal demands in exchange for supporting Juncker as the EC President. In principle, this is controversial, and the controversy is evident in the very language used to refer to the key relevant agreement. In Germany, and in much of the Anglo-American press, it is commonly referred to as the Stability and Growth Pact. However, in Italy, France and other countries, it is known as the Growth and Stability Pact.

Unleashing the Dragon

peoples trust toronto

by Zen Gardner

As anyone even half awake watching these world events unfold can see, there?s an abrupt acceleration that?s taking place. To me it?s clear the signal has been given that ?the coast is clear, go for the jugular?. The most profound aspect of this is that they?ve apparently come to the conclusion that their social engineering programs have succeeded to such an extent they can now get away with virtually anything.

A sad statement as to the state of humanity but it?s clearly the case. There appears to be no recourse through any of the previous channels of legal challenges, popular resistance, never mind protests, be they political or otherwise. Most importantly the populace has been relegated to simply watching.

The flagrant disregard for any kind of consequence for the multitude of egregious offenses against the fundamental values of truth, honesty or justice keep piling on by…

Norway Sovereign Wealth Fund Unveils “New Strategy” – Buy 5% Of Every European Stock

peoples trust toronto

Having learned last week that the world’s central banks are their sovereign wealth proxies have secretly pumped over $29 trillion into markets in the last few years, it is not entirely surprising to hear from one of the largest – Norway $888 billion oil fund – that it is buying stocks with bond hands and feet. As The Financial Times reports, Yngve Slyngstad, chief executive of Norway’s sovereign wealth fund, is hiring aggressively to manage its real estate portfolio and while the oil fund already owns 2.5% of every listed European company on average, it plans to go above 5%. Phew, bagholder found…

As The FT reports,

Yngve Slyngstad, chief executive of Norway’s $888bn oil fund, emphasised that it was “continuation of the strategy” but with numerous small changes.

All are in the same direction: we are incorporating as distinguishing characteristics firstly that we are very long-term investors…and secondly…
