Malaysia – #Bersih4 Created History

Beautiful…

Alas… Africa is still deep and dark and still gently asleep…

Satu Insan - Malaysia

The event may have closed (peacefully), but the collective intent and powerful energy created will now take over with inertia. The critical mass was achieved and the people have done a great job indeed!

THANK YOU UNIVERSE. THANK YOU MOTHER EARTH!

THANK YOU PEOPLE!

Change is inevitable.

The Bersih 4 rally ended at the stroke of midnight with the singing of Negaraku and chants of “Merdeka” but Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections (Bersih 2.0) chairman Maria Chin Abdullah hopes that the two key messages from the rally would live on and become a reality.

China Sells Major Part of US Gov’t Bonds to Back Up Yuan/ Sputnik International

Selling bonds is called “passing the hot potato”; wonder who is going to end up holding the ‘debt’? But, hang on, if a bond is a debit instrument then surely if a bond fails, it should then credit the national debt?

Maybe we should let ALL bonds fail to eliminate the debt? 🙂

China has massively reduced its holdings of US Treasuries in the last two weeks. Beijing informed the US government about the sales, but has not indicated the exact scope of the disposals, DWN reported.

Yuan vs Dollar: The World is Not US-Centric Anymore

The Chinese central bank sold the US government bonds, both directly, and indirectly Bloomberg reported, referring to insider information. Within the last twelve months, the bank also reduced their foreign exchange holdings by 315 billion dollars.

This step is reportedly designed to help China to stabilize its financial market.

On August 11, China started to devalue the national currency and sell US Treasuries to support the devaluation.

“The central bank will frequently intervene in the foreign-exchange market in the next three months as it needs to ensure the currency is stable,” a representative of Citigroup Inc. in Hong Kong said, as cited by Bloomberg.

At the same time, China’s currency policy is increasingly becoming a problem for the US. The massive sales of the US government bonds…

Tens of thousands of Japanese march against war constitution

Tens of thousands of protesters have rallied outside Japan’s parliament to oppose legislation that could see troops in the officially pacifist nation engage in combat for the first time since World War II.

In one of the summer’s biggest protests ahead of the new laws anticipated passage next month, protesters on Sunday chanted “No to war legislation!” ”Scrap the bills now!” and “Abe, quit!”

Organisers said about 120,000 people took part in the rally in the government district of Tokyo, filling the street outside the front gate of the parliament, or Diet. Similar demonstrations were held across the nation.

In July, the more powerful lower house passed the bills that allow the army, or Self Defence Force, to engage in combat when allies come under attack even when Japan itself is not.

The upper house is currently debating the bills and is expected to…

VOODOO ECONOMICS: Make No Mistake, You Are an American Debt Slave – By Christina Sarich

“It is the debtor that is ruined by hard times.- Rutherford B. Hayes

 – You are a debt slave. Don’t believe it? 43% of all American families spend more than they earn each year. According to the Federal Reserve, and I’ll describe the fictional premise upon which they stand momentarily, the average American household is at least $75,000 in debt. Overall, consumer debt in America has increased by a whopping 1700% since 1971. Approximately two-thirds of all American students graduate from college with student loan debt. But what of this debt? Is it real anyway?

“The rich will strive to establish their dominion and enslave the rest. They always did. They always will… They will have the same effect here as elsewhere, if we do not, by (the power of) government, keep them in their proper spheres.”

– Governor Morris, co-author of the U.S. Constitution in…

Arnie Asks: And what about American Sovereigns not affiliated with any specific church?

This is under the temporal role of the Holy See, not the Sacred offices as I stressed in my comment.

Two hats. Two roles. One role is secular and administrative. One is religious.

Anyone of any religion can be a sovereign, but the Holy See in its temporal role defines what a sovereign is and also the rights and duties of a sovereign. Thus in the most abstract sense all sovereigns occupy an office created and defined by the Church.

It is in applying the duties of a sovereign that the power of the office lies– the exact opposite of what people expect.

Your rights as a sovereign are secondary and dependent upon the duties. If you don’t do the duties you can’t claim the rights, but if you do the duties nobody can obstruct or complain about…

REBEL YELL: “Don’t Owe, Won’t Pay”, Everything You’ve Been Told About Debt Is Wrong – By Charles Eisenstein

RIELPOLITIK

Source – yesmagazine.org

“…Both of these entail a fundamental change in the way money is created. Positive money refers to money created directly without debt by the government, which can be given directly to debtors for debt repayment or used to purchase debts from creditors and then cancel them. Negative-interest currency (which I describe in depth in Sacred Economics) entails a liquidity fee on bank reserves, essentially taxing wealth at its source. It enables zero-interest lending, reduces wealth concentration, and allows a financial system to function in the absence of growth.

(“Don’t Owe, Won’t Pay”, Everything You’ve Been Told About Debt Is Wrong – By Charles Eisenstein)

– The legitimacy of a given social order rests on the legitimacy of its debts. Even in ancient times this was so. In traditional cultures, debt in a broad sense—gifts to be reciprocated, memories of help rendered, obligations not yet fulfilled—was a…

Folks here in the USA should take this advice RIGHT NOW. Don’t wait. If you wait and other folks don’t, they will strip the stores bare before you ever get there.

It’s not just him saying it though:

The former special adviser added that financial levers, such as cutting interest rates and Quantitative Easing (QE), which the Government was able to use in 2008, are no longer…

“Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream” Anniversary of the Kellogg-Briand Peace Pact on August 27, 1928

Rise Up Times

David Swanson explains the Kellogg-Briand Peace Pact.

Kellogg-Briand

Outlawing War As An Instrument of National Policy
Veterans for Peace Chapter 27

In 1928 U.S. Secretary of State Frank Kellogg and French Minister of Foreign Affairs Aristide Briand proposed that all nations join them in signing a pact outlawing war as an instrument of national policy and called upon all signatories to settle their disputes by peaceful means.

On August 27, 1928, fifteen nations signed the pact at Paris. Later, an additional forty-seven nations followed suit, so the pact was eventually signed by most of the established nations in the world. The U.S. Senate ratified the agreement by a vote of 85–1. The lone dissenter refused to sign only because he felt the pact did not go far enough to assure the end of war. This law, the Kellogg-Briand Pact, is still in effect today both nationally and internationally…
