"CUTTING THROUGH THE MATRIX"
LIVE ON RBN
Poem Copyright Alan Watt July 31, 2012:
There’s Method in the Madness:
by Data Churned Out by All Media,
We Live in Cognitive Dissonance, a Kind of Schizophrenia,
Information Overload is a Trick of Neuroscience,
When You Question Your Reality, it Leads to Compliance,
Unless of Course You Know the Plan and Where it’s Going,
Investigate World Order and See Where it’s Flowing,
Specialists in Herd Management Churned Out by Academia
Are Part of Global Management for Old Men with Ischaemia
Who Set it All in Motion a Hundred Years Ago,
Conditioning Each Generation, The Process Seems Slow
For Those Who’re Impatient, Don’t Try to Frown,
Fabian Tactics Work, Culture’s Upside Down"

Hi folks. I'm Alan Watt and this is Cutting Through the Matrix on the 31st of July, 2012.
I always advise newcomers to the broadcast to help themselves to the website, cuttingthroughthematrix.com and it goes back for many years and you can get lots and lots of free audios for download and you’ll start to understand the system you are born into, the system that’s very, very organized at the top, although they give you nothing but confusion at the bottom. That’s the job of the media, is to make you think that things are just happening in your lifetime on the spot and politicians get in and suddenly deal with crisis that’s just come out of the blue. Nothing is further from the truth. You are living through a planned society, a planned agenda, and the boys who got together, the big money boys, over a hundred years ago, got together and hired academia, massive think tanks, thousands of them, they still have them and they thought they’d run the world in a scientific fashion. Also, they deemed themselves higher up the evolutionary scale so they had the right to own most, in fact all actually, all of the resources on the planet. They wanted to take it all over, including the human resources, and also unite countries into trading blocs. They would naturally put central banks in, which they have done, and eventually these central banks would come under the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, which has already happened through the euro crisis. So we are living through a very planned agenda, including the wars that are going on right now too.
Now these things are all published by many of the big boys themselves in their own books; they love memoirs and biographies because they like to boast about it when they’re getting old and they’re retiring and so there are lots of old books that are about it, but Carroll Quigley is certainly worth reading and many of those involved in the Council on Foreign Affairs put out their books. Haass will eventually put out his own books and it will be quite startling to see what he puts in them of course; he’s the head of the Council on Foreign Relations right now. So anyway, help yourself to the audios and, remember too you can get print-ups as well of a lot of the transcripts of the audios I’ve done in those sites. Go into alanwattsentientsentinel.eu for transcripts in other languages if you want to print them up. Remember too you bring me to you, the audience. I don’t bring on advertisers as guests, I’m not selling you things that will make you live forever, I don’t have shares in any companies or corporations or anything like that. All I do is sell the books and discs at cuttingthroughthematrix.com and you can donate as well. So, go into the site, you’ll find out how to do it. Remember, from U.S. and Canada you can use personal checks and international postal money orders from your post office and you can send cash or you can use PayPal. Across the world, Western Union, Money Gram and PayPal.
And if you don’t understand history, you won’t understand what’s happening. That’s very, very simple because history teaches you the cons of managing vast populations. There’s nothing today that’s happening as far as the cons are…cons are simply formulas; Plato talked about them. He said that formulas which have worked in the past - this is thousands of years ago he said this – and made people change their behavior, and influenced their behavior, will always work again if you use them in the right sequence of implementation. So that’s why you get the same cons over and over again and the public don’t even know it’s happening to them. That’s the beauty of it. Today, it’s even more perfected because you are living through an age of instant communication and really universal, standardized information where everyone is getting the same data all the time, at the same time, and again, it’s put out by the guys at the top. Remember the Council on Foreign Relations is worldwide and they have their different names for different countries, but at the head you have the Royal Institute of International Affairs based in Britain. They have their specialized branches like the Royal Society etc. to guide all the scientists along the right paths and they have many other specialized areas too and think tanks, The Club of Rome, for instance, and the United Nations which they set up as well. They own the media, the mainstream media. If you look into their own web sites, and I’ve put their links up many times; you’ll find that the articles they put up are copied immediately by their own members in all national papers and international papers.
Back with more after this.
Hi folks, I’m back Cutting Through The Matrix and I’ve warned folk so many times about Facebook and so on; it doesn’t matter though, because you can’t help the general herd and that’s a fact. Most folk belong to the herd and they want to belong to the herd. It’s up to each individual to become an individual and kind of leave the herd and stop going along with the flow. If you do you go to your own destruction eventually in many, many ways; many ways to go to destruction. And Facebook, of course, is put up there, and all these things belong to the NSA, etc, etc.
Anyway, here’s another, another group that’s getting out of Facebook and it’s actually for musicians, it’s called, Limited Run. It’s a platform for labels, musicians and artists and they go through quite a good little article here. I’ll put this up tonight, the link for you at cuttingthroughthematrix.com and you can read it for yourselves. They go through the cons of Facebook and they’re charging etc. even if you want to change your name, like these guys did because they used to go under a different name. They’d have to pay a couple of thousand dollars more in advertising costs to get it done and things like that; it’s big, big money of course. But they’re also using a lot of cons to do with the numbers and the stats of the hits they give on the sites and they charge you for these hits if you’re advertising with them. So they go through all of this too and show you how the cons work.
And people are always on and on and on about first amendment rights in the US and second amendment rights and so on and it’s quite evident, it’s been evident for an awful long time, an awful, awful long time, even if you go back into the seventies, I think it was, when the Council on Foreign Relations, they put out their own magazine, Foreign Affairs, it was called, and all the bigwigs read Foreign Affairs across the world, but it said that they weren’t going to hit the constitution and the bill of rights head-on like they’d always done in the past. They’d simply build laws around them, like superstructures, over and under. And that’s what they did a long time ago.
So here’s a high-ranking Department of Justice official on video who refuses to affirm first amendment rights and you can actually see this happening in front of other people etc., during an inquiry I think it was. So I’ll put that up tonight too. And you can see how they treat your rights. Because they, remember, they’re living up in an ivory tower, these guys at the top. They were brought up in a different class altogether of schooling and everything else and family too, for that matter, and a completely different view of the world and you down below and we’re in an authoritarian society. These guys have been brought up to be the authoritarians and they’re getting very blatant about it, in your face about it, that government is not there to serve the people. And that’s very, very true across the world today. They’ve trained the public in every country that you are subjects now. You’re all subjects to authority because you’re in an authoritarian system according to the Club of Rome, which the CFR set up as the think tank for the United Nations and they go through the whole future for you, for those who want to go into it.
Another thing too, as we go down the road into the total destruction of the family and plus contraception was a big thing to do with this, I’ve got books going back into the seventies and sixties where they talked about this would just be the start, all put out by the big left-wingers, this would just be the start and they said that eventually sex itself would become just a recreational thing and promiscuity would become the norm and eventually they’d go into child pornography too and do away with pedophilias terms or terminology and all that would become normal as well. They’re still working on that latter part, but they’re not far from it mind you. But also they said that it would, a lot of people, they were talking about the average pedophile, would suffer until they eventually changed all the laws, which they said would come, to allow all this to happen. And here’s an article here.
“Fifty police officers arrested in child porn raids”.
Alan: Well I guess these are poor souls, you see, that are just at the tail end before they change the laws and make it all legal. Anyway, it says:
“Fifty police officers across the UK have been arrested as part of a crackdown on suspected paedophiles who pay to access child pornography websites...”
The officers were among 1,300 people arrested on suspicion of accessing or downloading indecent images of children - some as young as five - from US-based Internet sites.
Thirty-five men were arrested in London this morning as part of the investigation - codenamed Operation Ore - following raids on 45 addresses across the capital.
Of the 50 policemen identified, eight have been charged to date and the remainder bailed pending further inquiries. Scotland Yard said none of those arrested today was a policeman.
At a press conference at Scotland Yard today, Jim Gamble, assistant chief constable of the National Crime Squad, said he was not surprised at the number of police officers among the suspects.
"As police officers, we should expect to be held accountable," he said.”
Alan: Now, these guys, they’re walking the streets now searching everybody including children you understand. This is the time of pedophilia and as they did initially when they brought out promiscuity and then the next thing they brought out was actually the lesbians who led the homosexuals into their freedoms, because I can remember it all happening. I couldn’t figure out why lesbians would be down in London with all the placards standing up for male homosexual rights, but they were the ones who brought it in for them. But they said they’d use the same techniques eventually for pedophilia as well and the exact same techniques would work, since it worked with all the other ones before it. So as I say, these are probably the last articles you’ll read on this as they get into what they call intergenerational sex, which is just pedophilia, but it sounds better you see. It’s across the whole of society as far as we can tell; it’s everywhere and it’s going to get worse and worse as we go into utter chaos and destruction at the bottom because that’s the plan, of course.
Now, right to privacy, here’s another one too, on the constitution, I’ll put a link up and you’ll hear Scalia saying the right to privacy is not in the constitution, for those who still think that you are going by some kind of old laws. No you’re not, you’re going by brand new laws. And they said again that the internet would change all of that too. Now they’re using terrorism and they say that you can’t have privacy because we’ve got to find the terrorists and anyone can be one, and you might become one without even knowing, and they’ll find out before you do, you see, by the way that your mind is going and the clicks that you do and what sites you’re visiting. Yeah, I’m not kidding. So we’re pretty well all there into the totalitarian society that they want. All they have to do now is bring us into utter austerity. And you will have riots that’ll break out, of course, with those at the bottom because they’re the ones that suffer first of all and the governments are all ready for that. They’ve been ready for years for what’s to come.
Fracking...fracking, of course, has got a lot of people upset because apart from busting up all the countryside and putting big tanks up everywhere they also use a lot of chemicals and I’ve mentioned before and I’ll put it up again tonight, the list of the chemicals they pump in to cause the fracking. They put it under high pressure, hydraulic pressure, and you’re scared of course that it’s going to get into your water supply and so on. But now they’re coming out apparently with a new fracking method, they’re saying.
"Following a stream of dire headlines about plummeting natural gas prices, explorers and producers are finally beginning to shift their attention to advancements on the production side – more specifically, to a new natural gas extraction method. The new technology pumps a thick gel made from propane into the ground instead of using traditional methods of hydraulic fracking that make use of a mixture of water, sand, and chemicals.”
Alan: I’ll put the list of chemicals up because a lot of them are awfully deadly indeed, very deadly. It says:
“A planned shale gas drilling project in New York state has drawn global attention for its aim to make use of a waterless form of hydraulic fracking – a new technique designed to reduce the pollution associated with controversial natural gas drilling processes. According to an industry report, the project is focused on using a technology that pumps a thick gel made from propane into the ground as opposed to using traditional methods of hydraulic fracking that make use of a mixture of water, sand, and chemicals to extract natural gas reserves from deep shale formations. Unlike traditional technologies, the gel from the new liquefied propane gas (LPG) fracking method reverts to vapor while still underground, and as a result returns to the surface in a recoverable form. According to its developer, Calgary-based GASFRAC Energy Services, the gel also holds advantages over water-based methods in that it does not carry the chemicals used during the drilling process back to the surface.”
Alan: So we’ll see. There’s always horrors comes out of every story afterwards and you find more and more about them, so we’ll see if this is better or if more horrors come out of this one. But they’re definitely doing an awful lot of fracking across so many countries, especially in the States right now. It’s really something else.
Now, unemployment is part of austerity, for those that don’t understand that or think about it or know it. Remember too they understood, the big boys at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Council on Foreign Relations, the guys that drafted up and worked on uniting Europe for instance, the guys that drafted up the charter for the unification of the Americas and they came out on Canadian television at the time and told us, yeah, they were behind it, from their own actual site, on television. Anyway, they also, according to economics, Margaret Thatcher also talked about this too, that they could never have full employment because it was bad for the economy you see. In other words, if you had full employment, then labor costs would be higher because you’d have to lure them to your particular place of work, if they were already working, with higher wages. So they always keep a mass of people unemployed and this is the normal in economics, that’s what’s taught at university. Anyway, apart from that, it’s to go down and down and down into a new kind of semi-welfare-state system, which they’ve already got in a lot of countries like Britain and that’s to become the norm across the world. They only want a small group of people working eventually and that’ll be when the riots all break out of course, when they get to a certain…they’ll even know the limit, when you get to a certain number, when the riots break out and people just don’t have jobs. But this says here:
“Eurozone unemployment at record high in June”
“The number of people unemployed across the 17 countries that use the euro”
Alan: That’s their cash system.
“hit a record high in June, official figures showed Tuesday, in a stark reminder that Europe's debt crisis has ramifications beyond the financial markets.
Eurostat, the EU's statistics office, said 17.801 million people were out of work in the eurozone in June. That was 123,000 more than May, and is the highest level since the euro was formed in 1999. The increase was the 14th in a row and means that around 2.25 million people have lost their jobs since April 2011.
Despite the increase, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in June was unchanged at a record 11.2 percent. Without Germany's relatively-low unemployment rate of 5.4 percent, the wider figures would be much worse.”
Alan: So they’re plummeting too as everything now is imported from China, the same as everywhere else, and there’s very little manufacturing. Back with more, after this break.
Alan: Hi folks, we’re back, Cutting Through The Matrix and everything really around you is a con today because there are big plans afoot you see that must be fulfilled and part of it is to make you give up all your rights to save the world from a thousand different things, everything except the proper thing, the politicians themselves and governments. And one of the big tactics, as you’ve all known for a long time, is the Global Warming, and how they conned everyone by blatant lying and getting special computers that always give you scary scenarios. That’s all they churn out. They’re specially made to give you scary scenarios. They should use them in Hollywood for some of their horror movies because they’re pretty bad these days; but it says:
“Have a look at this chart. It tells you pretty much all you need to know about the much-anticipated scoop by Anthony Watts of Watts Up With That?”
Alan: this is James Delingpole from the Telegraph talking.
“What it means, in a nutshell, is that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) – the US government body in charge of America's temperature record, has systematically exaggerated the extent of late 20th century global warming. In fact, it has doubled it.
Is this a case of deliberate fraud by Warmist scientists hell bent on keeping their funding gravy train rolling? Well, after what we saw in Climategate anything is possible. (I mean it's not like NOAA is run by hard-left eco activists, is it?)”
Alan: Of course he gives you a link to prove that they are.
“But I think more likely it is a case of confirmation bias. The Warmists who comprise the climate scientist establishment spend so much time communicating with other warmists and so little time paying attention to the views of dissenting scientists such as Henrik Svensmark – or Fred Singer or Richard Lindzen or indeed Anthony Watts – that it simply hasn't occurred to them that their temperature records need adjusting downwards not upwards.
What Watts has conclusively demonstrated is that most of the weather stations in the US are so poorly sited that their temperature data is unreliable. Around 90 per cent have had their temperature readings skewed by the Urban Heat Island effect. While he has suspected this for some time what he has been unable to do until his latest, landmark paper (co-authored with Evan Jones of New York, Stephen McIntyre of Toronto, Canada, and Dr. John R. Christy from the Department of Atmospheric Science, University of Alabama, Huntsville) is to put precise figures on the degree of distortion involved”
Alan: What they’re talking about is that, you see, they put all these thermometers in little boxes up and then they built cities around them. Well concrete reflects all the heat and makes it stifling. Everybody who knows in a city knows this and so it gives you false readings, and I mentioned that back in ’98. Anyway, it says:
“There is, of course, one very, very sad aspect to this story – and truly it pains me to mention it but journalistic duty compels me to do so – and that's the dampening effect it may have on the grandstanding of a hapless fellow by the name of Professor Richard Muller.
Poor Professor Muller has been telling anyone who'll listen – his amen corner in greeny-lefty MSM, mainly – that as a former "skeptic" he has now been forced by weight of evidence to conclude that global warming is definitely man-made and there has been lots of it (a whole 1.5 degrees C – Wow! that's like almost as much as you'd get if you drove from London to Manchester!!!) since 1750. Tragically – as Watts has very reluctantly and by-no-means-experiencing-any-kind-of-Schadenfreude had to point out is that the data used by Muller to draw these conclusions was unreliable to the point of utter uselessness.
So, in the spirit of magnanimity in total crushing victory I would urge readers of this blog not to crow too much about the devastating blow Watts's findings will have on the Guardian's battalion of environment correspondents, on the New York Times, on NOAA, on Al Gore, on the Prince of Wales, on the Royal Society, on Professor Muller, or on any of the other rent-seekers, grant-grubbers, eco-loons, crony capitalists, junk scientists, UN apparatchiks, EU technocrats, hideous porcine blobsters, demented squawking parrots, life-free loser trolls, paid CACC-amites and True Believers in the Great Global Warming Religion.”
Alan: Remember too, this religion that they’ve created, it’s all from the far left. They came up a long time ago when they came out of eastern Germany, the Wall went down and lots of the communists moved into Europe, big time, and into the universities too because they had a lot of friends to get them jobs and then start indoctrinating the children over in the West and this is the next part of communism, it’s a way to get in the same agenda. We’ve had people here in Canada in politics who’ve said that, it doesn’t matter if it’s all bunkum science, if it’s all lies and bunkum, it will help redistribute the wealth across the world, that’s what they said, top politicians in Canada and elsewhere too. And that’s what it’s about, getting you into austerity and taxing every joule of energy that you use. And eventually, you’re now into a post-consumer society and you’ll be paying your extra cash out on fees and energy bills and things like that. That’s what they want because you understand communists are utter legalists; if you understand who created communism you’ll understand legalism; they’re the people of the legalism, you might say, all down through history. And they believe the people don’t have the right to make decisions for themselves, it’s far better if special folk make decisions all for them. So I’ll put this link up tonight too and you can see it for yourself.
I remember too, about the Global Warming nonsense too, when Russia had thousands of weather stations across Siberia for instance, well they all closed down when the walls came down and so all those readings are all missing from the charts and believe you me, it’s really cold along that way and that would certainly skew the results, if they bothered to use that again; they don’t like to mention that fact. Anyway:
“H.R. 1905: Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Human Rights Act of 2012”
Alan: This is the latest sanction put out by the U.S. on Iran, I’ll put this up as well, because they’re really trying to hammer them and starve them into submission. Just like they did with Iraq before they bombed it all to hell. First they kill the people by starvation and stopping food getting in and antibiotics. Back with more after this.
Alan: Hi folks, I’m back, Cutting Through The Matrix and this article is about biometric databases because this is the way that we’re all going to go and it’s getting pushed on everyone whether they like it or not, and that is the agenda. I’ve mentioned many times before, where back in the 90’s on a Canadian television program, Wendy Mesley did a show on the coming biometric system and the coming national identification card as well. Quite a good show, it showed you how it was done back then and how it would be and she talked to one of the top guys in the corporation that makes a lot of these cards today and at that time the guy said, she asked the guy, “What makes you think that Canadians will actually go for it?” and he says, “Well, they’ll be given no choice.” You see that’s the world you really live in. That’s the real world, you understand. And it will always be that way as long as the public don’t stand up and say, “Get off our backs.” And they won’t do that, you see, they’re too happy and content. Anyway, it says:
“In Israel, a heated debate is underway about whether Israel’s Interior Ministry will move ahead with the creation of a governmental biometric database containing digital fingerprints and facial photographs, which would be linked to “smart” national ID cards containing microchips. At the heart of the issue is a major concern about privacy.”
“On July 23, Israel’s High Court of Justice held a hearing on a petition filed by civil rights advocates who sought to strike down a law establishing a governmental biometric database and an associated two-year pilot program. The law approving the database, enacted in 2009, met with public resistance until the government backed down and agreed to begin with only the pilot program. The pilot was supposed to be a test for determining whether it was actually necessary to move forward with building the biometric database, but an Interior Ministry decree that sanctioned the program did not actually contain any criteria to measure whether the program succeeded or failed.
While three justices voiced harsh criticism of the database, they didn’t move to cancel the project altogether. Instead, they determined that the pilot program description has to present clear criteria for success and failure, so that it would be conducted as a true test.”
Alan: You know in the U.S or somewhere else they wouldn’t even bother giving the public any input at all. That’s what they do. See, we’re too happy with entertainment you understand, cheap entertainment. It doesn’t matter how you’re living, your standard of living is plummeting and you’re eating poisoned foods and all the rest of it, as long as you’re happy, you got lots of sex and you can twitter and call up your little ’bot friends, then you’re quite happy. You’ve been well put under during this war and you don’t even know that because you’re the happiest folk who’ve been put under in a war that’s ever existed in history. I hope you understand that. They know this.
I used to read the articles too about revolutions, many articles and some good books on revolutions and histories of rebellions and revolutions. What they said though, was after the Communist ones, they didn’t pack it in in Russia, they simply moved west and that was the agenda, of course, was to move west, under the guise of greening. The Green Party by the way was started up by Madeline Albright’s granddaddy in Russia. He was the right-hand man of Stalin, for those who didn’t know that. He started up the Green Party, that was part of the moving of all their agenda into the west through this new austerity, greening, all this kind of stuff, which would totally control the populations because that’s what communism is all about you see. That’s what it’s about. And you’ve got to understand that it’s all here and they said too, there would never be another communist-type revolution. See communism moved on from where it used to be. So there wouldn’t be a communist-type revolution where people were starving and getting jobs was terrible, massive inflation; that would bring on revolution; however, if the public, the general public, have playthings, little toys they can play with, of all ages, then they would never rebel. And it’s true, you’ve got all this cheap entertainment, as long as it’s cheap and everyone has access, even the ones at the bottom. Why do you think Obama gave out free iPhones to all the people on welfare and other countries have done the same thing? Why do you think every country is making sure that those at the bottom can get high-speed internet and things like that very cheap? They know what they’re doing you see. No one’s going to rebel. That’s how well...they do studies on all this stuff that I’m talking about, all the time, and they’ve got the pulse of the public, in real time. They know what people are bitching about. It’s generally about somebody’s boobs, are they real or are they not, you know, on some star or some celebrity; that’s what they’re bitching about.
Anyway, getting back to the article, and this database in Israel, they’re getting some input into it, which most countries don’t even get. They don’t even get the input into it.
And this other article is “Jewish communities to coordinate debate on circumcision” Because remember, Germany ruled that they shouldn’t circumcise because of there were so many children getting herpes especially from a particular strange tradition of some of the groups within Judaism who use the mouth to get rid of the blood and stop the blood from flowing and you can imagine what that can do. One guy in New Jersey I think was fined because he’d passed it on, one rabbi to quite a few children. Imagine getting that at eight days old. I mean do you want that to happen? Anyway:
“Jewish communities to coordinate debate on circumcision”
“Austria's Jewish community (IKG) said Monday it was working jointly with its German and Swiss counterparts to keep religious circumcision legal, after repeated calls for an end to the practice.
The IKG was organising an international coordinating group with the Jewish communities in neighbouring Germany and Switzerland...”
Alan: And it says here:
“This follows a heated debate that began last month when a court in the western German city of Cologne ruled that circumcision -- observed by both Muslims and Jews on religious grounds -- was tantamount to grievous bodily harm.
A couple of hospitals in Switzerland followed suit, saying they would at least temporarily suspend such operations.”
Alan: You’re not supposed to do operations in medicine unless, you are supposed to cause no harm and you only do operations that are utterly necessary. That’s all gone by the wayside of course with cosmetic operations etc., so everybody’s broken their oaths and everything else as we go down the tubes and greed rules the system. Anyway it says:
“The governor of Austria's westernmost Vorarlberg province, Markus Wallner, meanwhile issued a provisional recommendation to hospitals not to perform circumcisions, even on religious grounds.
This prompted an unprecedented joint call by Austrian Jews, Muslims and Christians on Friday for the government to "issue a clear commitment to religious freedom and to the legality of male circumcision."”
Alan: So you know, the craziness of all things just keeps going round and round. There’s lots of crazy things out there. And I’ll also put up “The Hockey Schtick” it’s called, “The Hockey Schtick”.
Alan: That’s the latest one, it’s from the top scientists, so that’s another, it’s not a nail in the coffin because you see it’s a belief system now and they’ve got to get it through because you see the big corporations want it through because they can get free credits for trading amongst themselves for carbon. The governments give them millions of dollars each in credits to start it off and then they make startling profits off it. They hire areas and call them carbon sinks and cons like that, and they trade in it and get lots of cash. So the big corporations want it and all the little greenies at the bottom that really are red, they want it too. Also tonight too, I’ll put up mining.com, it says:
“Not convinced Chinese trade is a disaster? Take a look at these shipping numbers”
Alan: And it’s quite good this article, for those who can hold their concentration for five minutes. It says:
“Shipbuilding and shipping capacity in China surged as the country's demand for raw materials escalated in tandem with breakneck economic growth and investment in infrastructure.
China has 20 ports that can handle more than 100 million tonnes of cargo and in 2010 built ships with deadweight tonnage of 65.6 million tonnes, overtaking long-time top builder South Korea for the first time.
China – which overtook Japan in 2010 to become the world's second largest economy – dominates the global trade in just about every commodity including iron ore (representing some 60% of the global 1 billion tonnes seaborne trade), copper (38%), coal (47%), nickel (36%), lead (44%) and zinc (41%).
Fast-forward a couple of years and rates, orders and activity in the shipping industry – especially dry-bulk vessels used to haul iron ore and coal – are painting a very different picture...”
Alan: And they give you all these different articles and statistics from the Baltic Dry Index; that’s the main one you’ve got to look into, the Baltic Dry Index, which takes all the data from every single ship across the planet, per day and per month and per year, and it’s just fantastic, incredible how much stuff is going into China, their big ships and how much they’re building there too in big ships. They’re mainly using their own big ships now, in fact; they’re actually banning other big ship holders to even come into Chinese ports; they want to use nothing but Chinese because they’re just churning these things out. But it’s fantastic and it’s putting a lot of western shipping businesses out of business big time. So, as I say, those who are into investments are quite well aware of the Baltic Dry Index, they watch that all the time.
And it says:
“Prosecutors turn to "extreme indifference" charge in Colorado shooting case”
“…prosecutors are taking advantage of a well-used tool that legal experts say could help ensure a conviction of the former graduate student accused of opening fire at a midnight showing of the new "Batman" film: the charge of murder with extreme indifference.
For each of the victims of the shooting spree in a Denver suburb that left 12 people dead and 58 wounded, prosecutors charged James Holmes with two murder counts - one standard first-degree murder charge, plus one count of murder with extreme indifference. They also filed two attempted murder counts for each of the wounded survivors.
In Colorado, a first-degree murder charge can be brought against someone who intended to murder another person. But it can also be brought where there is evidence of "extreme indifference to the value of human life generally"...”
Alan: I guess they should charge every one of the military branches as well, especially the guys that plan it all years ahead. It says:
“State laws that recognize murder with indifference are not uncommon, said Daniel Filler, a professor at Drexel University's law school, but in some cases, states treat murder with indifference as a lower grade offense than pre-meditated murder. In Colorado, murder with extreme indifference is also first-degree murder.
By charging Holmes with both crimes, prosecutors are giving jurors two opportunities to find Holmes guilty.
"This is a prosecutor's insurance policy," Filler said. "Nobody is going to think this wasn't an unbelievably, crazy, reckless act."”
Alan: This is before he’s tried, mind you too. Interesting they always say, and they used to always say in the States too, it doesn’t matter what they see or what they catch on film, they’re supposed to say you are innocent until proven guilty, because the proven guilty part is where you truly get evidence, you know. Anyway it seems that he’s been convicted already by everybody and they want to ensure that he goes the way of others before him. It says here:
“Romney denies criticizing Palestinian culture”
Alan: It’s quite, I love these gaffes that the politicians, the little front men that are picked by the real boys who run the world, they’re always making gaffes on things. So Romney’s in Jerusalem, it says he:
“...insisted Tuesday he was not specifically talking about Palestinian culture at a fundraiser in Israel on Monday when he was quoted suggesting culture was the reason for the economic disparity between Israel and the Palestinian territories.”
Alan: It’s culture, he says. Was he meaning one was more aggressive than the other? What was he meaning? He says:
“"That's an interesting topic that deserves scholarly analysis, but I actually didn't address that," Romney told Fox News' Carl Cameron, adding he didn't "intend" to talk about the subject in his campaign. "Instead, I will point out … that the choices a society makes have a profound impact on the economy and vitality of that society."
Palestinian officials accused Romney of making "racist" statements after the Republican candidate was quoted comparing Israel's economy with that of the Palestinian territories.”
Alan: That is a joke in itself, isn’t it?
“"As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000 dollars,”
Alan: It’s not actually; it’s about $31,000, but he got that wrong too.
“and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority,”
Alan: The guys behind barbed wire.
“which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality," Romney told a group of Jewish donors at a Jerusalem fundraiser that netted more than $1 million for his campaign.
The Republican candidate told supporters he began noting "enormous disparities" between neighboring countries during his time in the business world and cited a 1998 book, "The Wealth and Poverty of Nations" by David Landes, which studied why some countries did better than others.”
Alan: It’s because they’re more aggressive, that’s the state of the world, the aggressive end up ruling, same in business. That’s simple logic.
“"He says if you could learn anything from the economic history of the world it's this: Culture makes all the difference," Romney told supporters. "And as I come here, and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things."”
Alan: I wonder what that few other things are?
“In the interview with Fox News, Romney played down his perceived gaffes during his foreign tour over the last week, including his comment to NBC News that he found London's Olympic preparations "disconcerting." He accused the media of being more interested in "finding something to write about" than focusing on real issues.
"They'll instead try to find anything else to divert from the fact that these last four years have been tough years for our country," Romney said.”
Alan: So there’s your…what does it matter? What does it matter who they put in? They’re all front men. You do know they’re all front men, I hope. And this other article on something similar with Romney. It says his:
“...trip to Israel yielded $1 million in campaign contributions,”
Alan: Here they go abroad to get campaign contributions, and people can’t wisen up.
“but it came at a cost of sounding uninformed about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000 dollars, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality"...”
Alan: He says. But then it goes into the fact that:
“The economic disparity between the Israelis and the Palestinians is actually much greater than Romney stated. Israel had a per capita gross domestic product of about $31,000 in 2011, while the West Bank and Gaza had a per capita GDP of just over $1,500, according to the World Bank.”
Alan: Because you know what happened to Gaza too, they kind of destroyed it and burned it with phosphorous bombs and stuff like that.
“While the money line might've been red meat to some of Romney's donors (he also declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel, offending some), the words didn't really suggest his strength in dealing with the region's complex, historically-fraught conflict. And you kind of came away with that feeling after the Palestinians issued a statement, via Saeb Erekat, a senior aide to President Mahmoud Abbas. "This man doesn't realize that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its potential because there is an Israeli occupation."”
Alan: Ha, ha, ha. It’s kind of obvious, eh? I guess to be president you don’t have to know that.
“It seems to me this man [Romney] lacks information, knowledge, vision and understanding of this region and its people," Erekat said. "He also lacks knowledge about the Israelis themselves. I have not heard any Israeli official speak about cultural superiority." Oh, well: You win some (money), you lose some (integrity).”
Alan: So there you go. It really doesn’t matter who they put in though, does it?
I mentioned a while back about Rockefeller and Rothschild signing a big deal to put their wealth together, probably it was arranged hundreds of years ago that they’d eventually do this at this particular time. It says:
RIT Capital Partners, which is chaired by Lord Rothschild, has taken a 37pc stake in Rockefeller Financial Services, the family’s wealth advisory and asset management wing. It has snapped up the holding from French bank Société Générale for less than £100m.
The transatlantic alliance cements a five-decade acquaintance between the now ennobled Jacob Rothschild, 76, and David Rockefeller, 96, the grandson of the ruthlessly acquisitive American oilman and philanthropist John D Rockefeller.”
Alan: You know the philanthropist that eventually became a philanthropist by bringing two makeover specialists in after he had the miners in their tents all gunned down that wouldn’t go to work. They run the world folks, great philanthropists; they own the foundations and armies of NGO’s. Back with more after this.
Alan: Hi folks, we’re back, Cutting Through The Matrix. It’s interesting too that the Rothschilds on their side of the Atlantic and of course the Rockefellers on their side were the guys who really got going with the Royal Institute of International Affairs and before that they were called other names like the Rothschild and Cecil Rhodes Foundation, and the Milner Trust, etc. and over in the States they set up Rockefeller to do the same thing. These are the guys who drafted up the idea for amalgamating countries into trading blocs and free trade using London as the basis for it, which is still on the go today, and out of that came the European Union, the Asian-Pacific treaties and all the rest of it, because they run the whole show, including NAFTA, GATT and everything else, or the World Trade Organization. So here it goes,
“The Trans-Pacific Partnership: Agenda 21 Meets Global Corporate Takeover”
“The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
Alan: And again, the public have no input into this at all, as it’s done, right.
“"is a key trade initiative" that the Obama administration claims is "seeking to support jobs for American workers by boosting American exports to the dynamic Asia-Pacific region, promote manufacturing, innovation..."”
“However, the agenda of the TPP”
Alan: That’s the Trans-Pacific Partnership
“is a securitization of customs and border patrol services, telecommunications, corporate communication policy that directly effects immigration, corporate investments, and the addition of intellectual property rights with focus on copyright limitations.
The TPP, held in secret,”
Alan: This is the world you live in. And again, these guys that I just mentioned, Rockefeller and Rothschild, were the first ones to start off big philanthropic institutions so they wouldn’t have to pay taxes and they’ve got these big foundations, thousands of them across the world, that hire multi-thousands of NGOs to lobby government. Anyway, it’s held in secret and:
“is in actuality a multi-national trade agreement that seeks to extend intellectual property rights across the globe; creating an international enforcement scheme.
In a White House statement, Obama seeks to incorporate America with Canada and the other TPP countries in a “next-generation regional agreement that liberalizes trade and investment.”
Alan: Now, as a small business man, you won’t be in on it, it’s only for the big corporations that they allow in on it, same as Britain.
“The press release explains that TPP will build upon "the commitments of NAFTA [North American Free Trade Agreement]."
The TPP defines intellectual property as:
The leaked document drafted as the US TPP Intellectual Property Rights Chapter clearly states”
Alan: And I’ll put the links up for this tonight too at cuttingthroughthematrix.com.
“that negotiators for Obama are actively pushing for the adaptation of copyright measures that further restrict what is outlined in the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and other similar international treaties.
There is an initiative to control global IP enforcement by the UN under signatory treaty wherein nations will be mandated to enact domestic laws that have been worded to reflect the provisions in the TPP agreement.
As in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (DMCA), federal agencies are placed in control of digital “locks” and enforcement of overblown statutory damages on claims of copyright infringement; as well as restricting the US Congress from altering existing IP governances as changes in technology and innovation demands such elasticity.
Alan: Now I’ve got all the links for that on this particular article I’ll put up tonight too and you can see what’s coming. But this partnership also is to do with the free movement – it doesn’t say it in this article – of goods, services and labor, by the way. Labor from all over the pacific region can come into the States, Canada and elsewhere. And it also means, too, that the third world countries are involved and those ones will be paid big sums by you to build hospitals, schools, factories and then they’ll ship what’s left of your factories over to them, just like they did with the GATT treaty. And you haven’t been asked an opinion on anything because you see, you keep prattling on about democracy but you have never had it, never will either. From Hamish and myself, from Ontario, Canada, it’s good night and may your God or your Gods go with you.
