Recently one of my friends and I were discussing the disgusting level of apathy by the American public towards the tyrannical behavior of the US government, its agencies and its individual officials. The definition of the word “Apathy” via Wikipedia is defined as: “a lack of feeling, emotion, interest, or concern. It is a state of indifference, or the suppression of emotions such as concern, excitement, motivation, and/or passion.
An apathetic individual has an absence of interest in or concern about emotional, social, spiritual, philosophical and/or physical life and the world.” That pretty much sums up the attitude and state of mind of the vast majority of the American population in regards to the treasonous, criminal behavior being perpetrated on them by their own government.
Let’s briefly look at some recent examples of this Tyranny:
1.) The level of crony capitalism and financial crimes that have been committed in recent years including the blatant rigging and manipulation of every possible financial market. Even though this has been greatly exposed and accepted as truth, few individuals have been prosecuted or jailed as a result.
Harley Schlanger, the National Spokesman for LaRouchePAC joins me to discuss the latest – as the United States creeps toward another Bankster designed world war led by Obama, the Neocons and the CIA. We document the crimes of CIA head John Brennan who had boots on the ground IN the Ukraine just days ago, the same man responsible for covering up 28 pages of “redacted” and “classified” 9/11 information implicating the Saudis in the crime of the century. We also discuss the BLM-Bundy Ranch crimes, the Traitor Harry Reid, drought and much more.

Doug Casey is emphatic that a downturn will affect us all. When it comes, we want to minimize the damage. That’s particularly challenging for baby boomers and seniors who may be at, or past, the end of their careers.
In the past I’ve shared some experiences from speakers who had real world experience with hyperinflation. It is not pretty. They were quite candid that many previously wealthy seniors and savers ended up penniless before things got under control. That’s the ultimate catastrophic loss.
So how can you test your safety through diversification?

Vice President Joseph Biden’s two-day visit to Ukraine has ended with a resumption of the Kiev regime’s military crackdown against its political opponents in the southeast of the country and a dangerous escalation of US threats against Russia.
Oleksandr Turchynov, who is both acting president and chairman of the parliament following the US-backed, fascist-led coup of February 22, announced Tuesday that he had ordered the country’s security forces to “carry out effective counterterrorist activities aimed at defending Ukrainian citizens living in the country’s east from terrorists.”
Troops have reportedly been massed in the town of Izyum, on the border between Ukraine’s Kharkov region and Donetsk, the country’s most industrialized region. Donetsk has been the center of protests against the US-backed ultranationalists who seized power in Kiev.

The similarities between 2007 and 2014 continue to pile up. As you are about to see, U.S. home sales fell dramatically throughout 2007 even as the mainstream media, our politicians and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke promised us that everything was going to be just fine and that we definitely were not going to experience a recession. Of course we remember precisely what followed. It was the worst economic crisis since the days of the Great Depression. And you know what they say – if we do not learn from history we are doomed to repeat it. Just like seven years ago, the stock market has soared to all-time high after all-time high. Just like seven years ago, the authorities are telling us that there is nothing to worry about. Unfortunately, just like seven years ago, a housing bubble is imploding and another great economic crisis is rapidly approaching.

In March, we showed the sentiment report for gold and silver. In Gold and Silver Sentiment Improving Significantly, we showed how gold sentiment had been improving but was due for a break. The key was not to pull back to a score of 40 or 50. From the latest sentiment report, it appears that sentiment towards both gold and silver has reached a normal pullback. However, it should not go lower from here.
From Sentimentrader: On March 14, we took a look at gold sentiment, and noted that it had reached a two year high. When looking at such high optimism in spite of the metal still at least 10% below its previous 52 week high, it tended to suffer going forward.

One of my favorite, up-and-coming writers is Michael Snyder – who last night wrote that 2014 is turning out to be “eerily similar to 2007”; which, of course, preceded the worst economic collapse of our lifetimes. Frankly, all one needs to understand the lunacy of 2007 is the following quote…
The mainstream media, our politicians and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke promised us everything was going to be just fine and we definitely were not going to experience a recession.
-The Economic Collapse, April 23, 2014
…this gibes eerily with “Whirlybird Janet’s” speech last week, in which she repeated Bernanke’s claim in anticipating the equivalent of “full employment” and “stable inflation” by the end of 2016. Never mind that, unlike Bernanke, she expects such developments nearly three years from now or, for that matter, the so-called “unemployment rate” could theoretically fall to historic lows simply due to a continued plunge in the labor participation rate. Better yet, her claim that “stable inflation” incorporates a near doubling of the CPI!

Glenn Miller, the former North Carolina Ku Klux Klan leader, arrested in the Kansas City Jewish Community Center shootings that killed three people on Sunday, has been identified previously as an FBI informant. The FBI is known to have infiltrated the Klan time and time again since the civil rights days, during a period when J. Edgar Hoover had set his sights on flushing out supposed commies and ending the career of Martin Luther King. Miller testified for the government in a major trial where the Feds sought to convict leaders of the Far Right. In his book, A White Man Speaks Out, he claims to have been an FBI informant.

As the standoff in the eastern Ukraine deteriorates into violence it’s up to world powers to step in and calm things down. Despite tough talk from Washington, the US, EU, Russia and Ukraine have managed to reach a framework to peace in Geneva. But will it be enough to avert a civil war? Sophie asks the Russian Foreign minister himself – Sergey Lavrov.

While the cretins of Basher Central are a generally reprehensible group of slime-balls; one point in their favor is that they have a knack for producing good laughs with their “journalism”.
Yesterday, it was Kitco who informed the world: U.S. New Home Sales Fall/Rise 14.5% In March
Today those comic geniuses had a new spoof for us, as they reported this startling revelation: Gold Prices Possibly Manipulated For a Decade
Wow! The price of gold “possibly manipulated” for a decade. Who around here would have suspected that in our squeaky-clean markets, with our eternally vigilant regulators that the price of gold could have been MANIPULATED…perhaps for as long as a decade?

LAS VEGAS – We are pleased to report the the Republican Party of Nevada passed a “Resolution Affirming The Right Of Due Process Of The People,” opposing the detention provisions in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) at their state convention over the weekend. Resolution G109 condemns the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and the law of war, and even calls on the state legislature to take steps to block the aforementioned from being applied in their state.
“Resolved, We request the Nevada Legislature pass a law prohibiting any agency in Nevada from detaining, aiding in the detaining, or subjecting any person to the “law of war” where they are denied their rights to due process under the Nevada and U.S. Constitution”
Though the resolution has no legal weight, and thus some of the language does not hold up to our standards, it adds legitimacy to the NDAA Resistance in that state now that a major party has endorsed their efforts to ban the laws of war in Nevada. Assisted by Shawn Meehan, the resolution was introduced by Daphne “I’m Just a Mom” Lee, who had this to say about its passage:

The State of Georgia has just signed an unprecedented new law that removes all handgun carrying and possession permissions to allow lawful residents the ability to carry their concealed firearms just about everywhere including schools, churches, government buildings, nightclubs and bars. The National Rifle Association hails it as the “most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history.”
Critics have appropriately dubbed it the “Guns Everywhere Bill,” with former Rep. Gabrille Giffords (D-AZ) calling it the “most extreme gun bill in America.”
But proponents of the legislation say it’s exactly what residents need to protect themselves from criminals.

Napolitano: Outrageous Eminent Domain Cases & “All Federal Land Ownership Is UNCONSTITUTIONAL”………..
For the first time on mainstream media, Napolitano calls it right. The Constitution prohibits the federal government from the ownership and possession of land. All federal possession is unconstitutional and all land should be relinquished and returned to owners or the states.
“This is not a game.”
Las Vegas, NV – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today on racist comments by Cliven Bundy reported by the New York Times.
“I used to live in North Las Vegas and it is home to some of the hardest-working people I have ever met – men and women who embody the American dream by working hard every day to build a better life for themselves and their families. By contrast, Cliven Bundy has spent decades profiting off government land while refusing to pay the same fair use fees as his fellow ranchers. Today, Bundy revealed himself to be a hateful racist. But by denigrating people who work hard and play by the rules while he mooches off public land he also revealed himself to be a hypocrite.”

Switzerland’s highest court is about to decide whether top managers at Nestlé—by revenue the world’s largest food company—will be investigated in connection with the murder of a former employee in Colombia.
Paramilitary thugs tortured and killed trade union activist Luciano Romero in 2005—just before he was to testify at the Permanent People’s Tribunal on Nestlé’s corporate and trade union policies.
Lower Swiss courts have ruled against an investigation of the company despite recommendations from a Colombian judge, but his widow launched an appeal earlier this year to the Federal Supreme Court of Switzerland.

from Before Its News:
A book titled ‘Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the Nature of the Universe‘ contains a notion that life does not end when the body dies, and it can last forever. The author of this publication, scientist Dr. Robert Lanza who was voted the 3rd most important scientist alive by the NY Times, has no doubts that this is possible.
Lanza is an expert in regenerative medicine and scientific director of Advanced Cell Technology Company. Before he has been known for his extensive research which dealt with stem cells, he was also famous for several successful experiments on cloning endangered animal species.
But not so long ago, the scientist became involved with physics, quantum mechanics and astrophysics. This explosive mixture has given birth to the new theory of biocentrism, which the professor has been preaching ever since.
Biocentrism teaches that life and consciousness are fundamental to the universe. It is consciousness that creates the material universe, not the other way around. Lanza points to the structure of the universe itself, and that the laws, forces, and constants of the universe appear to be fine-tuned for life, implying intelligence existed prior to matter.

United States Attorney General Eric Holder has declared that the too-big-to-fail Wall Street banks are too big to prosecute. But an outraged California jury might have different ideas. As noted in the California legal newspaper The Daily Journal:
California juries are not bashful – they have been known to render massive punitive damages awards that dwarf the award of compensatory (actual) damages.For example, in one securities fraud case jurors awarded $5.7 million in compensatory damages and $165 million in punitive damages. . . . And in a tobacco case with $5.5 million in compensatory damages, the jury awarded $3 billion in punitive damages . . . .
The question, then, is how to get Wall Street banks before a California jury. How about charging them with common law fraud and breach of contract? That’s what the FDIC just did in its massive 24-count civil suit for damages for LIBOR manipulation, filed in March 2014 against sixteen of the world’s largest banks, including the three largest US banks – JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup.
