DAS KAPITAL: There is No “Free Trade”–There Is Only the Darwinian Game of Trade – By Charles Hugh Smith

RIELPOLITIK

Source – oftwominds.com

 – “…The Neoliberal Agenda trumpets “free trade” because “free trade” is a cover for “free capital flows.” Once capital is free to flow from central-bank fueled global corporations, no domestic bidder can outbid foreign mobile capital, as those closest to the central bank credit spigots can borrow essentially unlimited sums at near-zero rates–an unmatched advantage when it comes to snapping up resources and assets”

There is No “Free Trade”–There Is Only the Darwinian Game of Trade – By Charles Hugh Smith

Rising income and wealth inequality is causally linked to globalization and the expansion of Darwinian trade and capital flows.

Stripped of lofty-sounding abstractions such as comparative advantage, trade boils down to four Darwinian goals:

1. Find foreign markets to absorb excess production, i.e. where excess production can be dumped.

2. Extract foreign resources at low prices.

3. Deny geopolitical rivals access to these resources.

Why Super-Rich Rush to Buy Nuclear-Proof Bunkers

Global Research, March 13, 2018

The rush amongst the super-rich started after the key event of 2014; this single stunning event suddenly sparked that rush by the super-rich to buy nuclear-proof bunkers, and the rush has been nonstop since that event.

Though many news-media in The West have reported on the existence of this suddenly booming market for luxurious and supposedly nuclear-proof bunkers, none has reported on what actually caused it — the event that had sparked it.

In fact, that event is still a secret in The West — not publicly mentioned here; it is, practically speaking, banned from being publicly even mentioned, in The West. So: since that event is necessarily mentioned in this article, and is even linked-to here, so that the reader can see videos of it that were posted of it online while it was happening, and there is even “smoking gun”…

Amazon Sets Off to Become America’s Biggest Mortgage Lender

The Most Revolutionary Act

Source: ZeroHedge

First it monopolized the online retail space; then it made a dramatic appearance in the bricks and mortar grocery sector with its acquisition of Whole Foods, and lately it has been preparing to take on both the pharmaceutical & healthcare sector,  and even banking.

And it’s only just starting, because as Housing Wire notes, Amazon is now looking to get into the mortgage lending business. The company for which barriers to entry simply do not exist, was first reportedly planning on starting with offering checking programs first, then move into the debt product space after. And now, Housing Wire confirms that Amazon is currently looking to hire someone to lead their newly-formed mortgage lending division.

Here, a humorous aside from the report author, who refuses to provide the identity of the mortgage lender firm that Amazon has targeted:

Due to non-disclosure agreements, we probably shouldn’t reveal…

Only a Forensic Examiner can determine the Validity of an “Original” Note

Livinglies's Weblog

Message of the day to homeowners and their lawyers: “stop admitting things that you assume are true. By admitting those facts you are hanging your client or yourself. Even the client is apt to say “Yes that is my signature on the note” when it has been described by opposing counsel as the original.   In most cases the document might look like an original but it isn’t.
The proper response is “From what I have learned from expert analysis, I doubt it. I do not remember the appearance of the original note. I don’t know if what you are handing to me is the original and therefore I don’t know if that is my actual signature or if it is a reproduction of my signature using mechanical devices to recreate my signature.”
The attorney or the homeowner is not a forensic document expert. 
So if the homeowner is asked

Legalizing Tyranny by Chris Hedges

Rise Up Times

The two main political parties compete to see which can be “tougher” on crime. Congress enacted 92 death-eligible crimes from 1974 to 2010. A first-time drug offense in the United States can lead to a life sentence.

Mr. Fish / Truthdig  

By Christ Hedges  Truthdig  March 4, 2018

The students I teach in prison who have the longest sentences are, almost without exception, the ones who demanded a jury trial. If everyone charged with a crime had a jury trial, the court system would implode. Prosecutors, defense attorneys and judges use those who insist on a jury trial—often people who did not commit the crime with which they were charged—as examples. Their sentences, frequently life sentences, are grim reminders as to why it is in the best interests of a defendant, even if he or she did not commit the crime, to take a plea agreement. Ninety-four percent of…

40 Years of Data Suggests 3 Myths About Globalization

James 2:5 Hearken, my beloved brothers, has God not chosen the poor of this world, rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to them that love him? 6 But you have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the Judgement seats?

© blogfactory

Special London Correspondent Harry Barclay reveals some home truths and myths about Globalization.

Three beliefs about globalization have propagated since the early 1980s. First, that globalization leads to a reduction in global inequality. Second, that high income growth among the richest will lift the incomes of the poorest. Third, that there is no alternative to rising inequality without turning our backs on trade and technology. The recently released World Inequality Report, the first research study to comprehensively examine wealth and income inequality trends across rich and emerging countries over approximately 40 years, dispels these notions.

Globalization has led to a rise in global income inequality, not a reduction

Inequality between individuals across the world is the result of two competing forces: inequality between countries and inequality within countries. For example, strong growth in China and India contributed to significant global income growth, and therefore, decreased inequality between countries. However…

OK, We Fabricated and Forged the Documentation. So What?

Livinglies's Weblog

As Bill Paatalo (who brought this to my attention) says: “You can’t make this s–t up.” Reality is much stranger than fiction. This marks the point where we have entered the Twilight Zone in law where the rule of law is just a guidepost not to be confused with the real rule of men.

Sheila Bair  was forced out of the Chairmanship of the FDIC by Geithner when it became obvious that this was a game she was unwilling to play. Even worse she was making her opposition public, essentially saying that the government was becoming complicit in a criminal conspiracy (not her exact words, publicly but evidence suggests she said exactly that to Geithner and probably Obama).

This may be the dumbest thing that any politician could ever do…

1EarthUnited

Week before last, I told you about how the brand-new President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, made an impassioned speech calling for the confiscation of real estate from white land owners.

It was a pretty remarkable thing to say during what was literally his first week in office.

You’d think the new president would take the opportunity to address more immediate, more critical issues– for example, the fact that Cape Town is about to run out of water.

IMPORTANT QUESTION SUBJECT For Present and Former Bar Association Members

Sunday, March 4, 2018

By Anna Von Reitz

Remember Eve in the Garden of Eden? Satan said that if she ate the apple, she wouldn’t die…..and she didn’t…..at least not right away…..?

Remember when your parents (who were deceived themselves) or a well-intentioned employer told you that you “had to have a Social Security Number”? And that is true, if you happened to be applying for employment with the federal government. Then, of course, you would need to enroll in their retirement and employee benefits program….but not otherwise.

And it is the same thing with the Bar Associations telling new JD graduates that they have to have a Bar Card….which is true, if you want to be a prosecutor for the federal government corporations and their “federated state of state franchises” and an employee of the court, but otherwise not.

The pure fact is that there is no requirement for anyone to be a Bar Association Member to engage in the profession of law in this country and there never has been. I defy anyone anywhere to prove that there is any general requirement to be a Bar Member to use the court facilities, present cases, or offer effective counsel to others with or without pay.

The fact is that the perpetuation of these “mandatory” Social Security enrollment and Bar Association Membership half-truths are undertaken in self-interest by undeclared foreign interests. Look up the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) if you think I am lying. Also see Trinsey v. Pagliaro and the cases that Robert F. Kennedy fought pertaining to these issues.

Happily, quite a number of the best people working in the profession of law today have realized this and they are leaving the Bar to stew in its own juice. This is happening as a result of Bar Associations kicking members out for the sin of actually defending and protecting their clients’ best interest, and it is happening as a result of lawyers waking up, going, “OMG!” — and ripping up their Bar Cards accordingly.
The lawyers among us are now waking up along with the rest of the populace and realizing that they have been sold a total bill of goods, and that the Bar Associations and their members will be held accountable for their misdeeds.

The fact is that lawyers can function either as attorneys-at-law or they can function as counselors-at-law. These are “capacities” within the profession in which a lawyer can choose to work, just as you can choose to work in the capacity of a hotel manager or a hotel bartender and still be working in a hotel.
Attorneys join the Bar to gain group insurance and bonding benefits. Also so their buddies in the fraternity will gang up on any outsiders.

Counselors pay their own insurance and bonds and otherwise don’t have any reason to join the Bar, because they aren’t involved in the disposition of public property or addressing issues related to public employees– that is, they aren’t working in administrative capacities as members of an administrative court.

Attorneys-at-law traditionally function as property managers involved in the administration of civil cases in Article I courts dealing with in-house legislative “laws” and statutes. This is why those working in administrative courts supported by the United States Districts, the Territorial States of States, and the Municipal STATES OF STATES are all required to be “attorneys” and Bar Members by their employers.

Attorneys work in administrative tribunals. Not judicial courts.

This fact accounts for these frank admissions about the nature of the federal territorial and municipal courts and their various state-of-state franchises operating on our shores:
“There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been since 1789, Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive Administrators enforce Statues and Codes. There have not been any Judges in America since 1789. There have just been Administrators.” FRC v. GE 281 US 464, Keller v. PE 261 US 428 1 Stat. 138-178
“Courts are Administrative Tribunals” Clearfield Trust, et al v. United States 318 U.S. 363 (1943).

Counselors-at-law traditionally function in judicial court capacities and have the duty to protect and defend their living clientele, unlike their attorney-at-law brethren who are limited to dealing with public property and public employees and incorporated “things”, either belonging to or working for or working with the government corporations.

Naturally, when a counselor-at-law appears a number of things are different about the nature and tenor of the proceedings.

A counselor-at-law is not required to enter an appearance prior to a court date and may simply walk in with a brief explanation to the judge that he or she is working in the capacity of a counselor-at-law and providing effective assistance to the Plaintiff or Defendant.

Often, to further clarify things, the judge will ask if the counselor-at-law is a member of the Bar Association. If not, the proper response is simply, “I don’t have a card (or more properly, a “ticket”) with the Bar.”

This is referring obliquely to the Bid Bond that the Bar Associations post in maritime cases involving incorporated entities, and is further signaling the judge that the Plaintiff or Defendant is appearing in the capacity of a living man or woman and that the court has to shift gears from bartending to hotel management– or, as it actually is for these courts, from international sea jurisdiction to international land jurisdiction.

The first difference for the court’s notice when a counselor-at-law appears is the explicit revelation of the capacity in which the Plaintiff/Defendant is operating.

If he or she is operating in their actual, living capacity as a man or woman standing on the land jurisdiction of the United States, they are owed all their constitutional rights and guarantees including a counselor-at-law who can advise them but not “represent” them, because they are presumed to be free people above the age of twenty-one and competent to make their own decisions. That’s why they have hired a counselor-at-law instead of an attorney.

That is also why they are forcing the court to engage them as people under the Public Law of the United States or the General Session Law of the State instead of as “things” subject to the Private Administrative Law of any foreign territorial or municipal corporation or state of state or incorporated county franchise tribunal.

Attorneys represent “things” — corporate franchises, wards of the state, bankrupt businesses, murdered victims of crime, mentally incompetent people, –all things that cannot “stand for” or answer for themselves. That is why they have to be “re-presented” by a substitute acting “for” them.

Counselors-at-law assist in presenting cases for living people.

Notice the difference: attorneys “represent” and administer the affairs of their clients often without regard for or even consulting with their clients. For example, they cut plea-bargains and waive rights and sell off property in whatever way best benefits the court. This is because they work for the court and the client is at best considered a public trust subject to the court’s administration. And this is true whether you pay the blighter or not.

Notice that counselors-at-law “present” cases with and for their patrons, who administer their own affairs and make their own decisions throughout the proceedings, retain all their rights and prerogatives and do not willingly subject themselves to the court’s administration.

Now, obviously, from the court’s standpoint, it is very convenient to be able to dictate whatever happens in each and every case, so as to “administer” it as best suits the “public good” and the “good of the court” —and the court’s corporate employers, of course, without regard for any such niceties as equity owed to living people, or any rights owed to living people.

Just as obviously, it is a death knell to justice and an end to all freedom for living people to allow this state of affairs to go on.

When even the lawyers among us are so dumbed down and ignorant that they think the Bar Association has the power to obstruct them from pursuing their vocation, it’s time to outlaw the Bar Associations, because they are clearly over-stepping any rational function or status that they have.

U.S. District, State of State and STATE OF STATE courts can demand whatever credentials they wish from people that they hire to represent their interests, just as other private and public interests can demand whatever credentials they desire from their employees.

Turning this situation around requires all of us, including the legal eagles among us, to wake up and take responsibility for what we are doing and what we are allowing. If a “State of State” Legislature can pass a statutory “law” saying that all its court officials have to be Bar Association Members, our State Legislatures can just as easily pass a General Session law saying that none of our courts will allow Bar Association Members.

Pay attention to what I am telling you: State of Wyoming is a Territorial Franchise Court. STATE OF WYOMING is a Municipal Franchise Court. Both of these are foreign corporation franchises like the local Target store. They are limited to running administrative tribunals and they can require all the people in their “court system” to be Bar Association members until the cows come home, because these are private administrative tribunals.

But the Wyoming State Court belongs to the people of Wyoming and they run judicial courts of record that are superior to any private administrative tribunals and they can mandate that no Bar Association members are allowed to practice law in their venue —thereby providing plenty of work for counselors-at-law.

That this great country and its people have been hoodwinked and pulled off course for so long by selfish private interests is an immense and horrifying Breach of Trust, but it is one that we can swiftly rectify by changing our own presumed political status and thereby changing the “presumed” capacity in which we choose to act in court and also changing the capacity in which our lawyers act.

All those former Bar Attorneys and those who are thinking seriously now of tearing up those cards? Learn the truth and set yourselves free of the imaginary shackles that the Bar Associations have placed on you. You can come into any court in this country in the capacity of a Counselor-at-Law and there is nothing any of the courts can say except, “Yes, of course….”

The Many American Wars No One Notices

Rise Up Times

Current American cultural detatchment from wars in other parts of the world.  Politics is now theater. War on terror has cost 5.6 trillion. Evironmental degradation. Civilian deaths.

 Click here to listen to the podcast.

We don’t even know we’re being kept in the dark. America’s wars are everywhere. With the mainstream news focus on all Trump all the time, major stories affecting us all get virtually no attention. Did you know, for example, that America is waging wars in 76 countries? No one is paying attention to our numerous wars. Part of the reason, according to Stephanie Savell, co-director of Costsofwar.org at Brown University’s Watson Institute, is that there is a war being waged on information. The rest of the world is all too aware, but here in America they are wars no one notices. More of our tax dollars than…

The Complete History of Monsanto, “The World’s Most Evil Corporation”

Global Research, March 02, 2018
Waking Times 22 June 2014

First published by Waking Times, posted by Global Research in May 2014, this article provides a historical viewpoint. It is of particular relevance in relation to the Monsanto-Bayer merger.

Of all the mega-corps running amok, Monsanto has consistently outperformed its rivals, earning the crown as “most evil corporation on Earth!” Not content to simply rest upon its throne of destruction, it remains focused on newer, more scientifically innovative ways to harm the planet and its people.

1901: The company is founded by John Francis Queeny, a member of the Knights of Malta, a thirty year pharmaceutical veteran married to Olga Mendez Monsanto, for which Monsanto Chemical Works is named. The company’s first product is chemical saccharin, sold to Coca-Cola as an artificial sweetener.

Even then, the government knew saccharin was poisonous and sued to stop its manufacture but…

(Natural News) YouTube tyranny is in full swing as the dominant video site has turned over video flagging responsibilities to radical left-wing slander groups like the SPLC, famous for flagging just about every Christian and Catholic group across America as some sort of hate group.

“The Southern Poverty Law Center is assisting YouTube in policing content on their platform,” reports The Daily Caller. “The left-wing nonprofit — which has more recently come under fire for labeling legitimate conservative organizations as “hate groups” — is one of the more than 100 nongovernment organizations (NGOs) and government agencies in YouTube’s ‘Trusted Flaggers’ program, a source with knowledge of the arrangement told TheDC.”

Under the control of radicalized left-wing censorship, YouTube has unleashed a censorship rampage over the last week, targeting nearly every prominent conservative, independent media leader and even book authors for termination. (This is what happens when Leftists…

Prostituting Charity: The Oxfam Debate

Global Research, February 28, 2018

Featured image: Roland van Hauwermeiren

Oxfam has outdone itself.  In the murky, squalid business where charity seems to chase, then embed itself in disaster zones like a dedicated virus, Oxfam ranks highly.  In terms of a tally, the number of reported abuses in the charity sector is galloping ahead, with one of Britain’s most noted charities in the lead.

The revelations this month that the charity’s staff sexually exploited victims of the Haiti earthquake in 2010, a point subsequently concealed, have triggered a storm of British discontent.  The revelations included a very active country director, Roland van Hauwermeiren, who revelled in sex parties as he went about his humanitarian work.  Allegations of sexual abuse in Oxfam shops have also made their searing mark.

The organisation has lost over 7,000 donors since the revelations, and MPs on the international development committee overseeing aid have been…
