The U.S. State Department on Monday declined to say if Martin Wani, a 20-month-old Christian boy imprisoned by the Islamist Sudanese government, is a U.S. citizen.
“You don’t know whether that little boy in prison is a U.S. citizen?” CNSNews.com asked State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki at the department’s Monday press briefing.
“I don’t have any more details to share,” Psaki said.
The State Department also would not say if the boy’s father, Daniel Wani, is a U.S. citizen and if, as the father has reportedly said, the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum asked the father to secure DNA evidence to prove his imprisoned 20-month-old son was in fact his son.
CNSNews.com asked: “Is Meriam Ibrahim’s 20-month-old son, who is in prison with her, a U.S. citizen by virtue of his father being a U.S. citizen? Is the unborn child, with whom Meriam Ibrahim is 8 months pregnant, entitled to U.S. citizenship because his father is a U.S. citizen?”
By the close of the day, the State Department had not responded.
News reports out today indicate the Christian woman sentenced to death in Sudan for rejecting Islam is being shackled by Sudanese officials despite the fact she is eight-months pregnant. The Islamic court is waiting until Meriam Ibrahim, 26, gives birth before carrying out the sentence but she is reportedly held in chains until then.
Ibrahim’s husband, U.S. citizen Daniel Wani, a Christian, tells CNN that she has been spending her days bound with shackles on her legs. He was able to visit his wife for the first time in prison yesterday.
The American citizen being held in Iran for alleged crimes related to his faith and work as a Christian pastor was yanked from a hospital bed, beaten and taken back to one of the Islamic Republic’s infamous prisons, his family charges.
Pastor Saeed Abedini had spent the past two months in a hospital for injuries allegedly suffered at the hands of guards and inmates in Iran’s Evin and Rajai Shahr prisons when he was once again beaten and hauled back to prison, according to family members who say they witnessed the beating.
“This news is devastating to our family,” his wife, Naghmeh Abedini, told FoxNews.com. “This development also came as a complete shock to all of us. Saeed’s family, who was present at the hospital when this occurred, witnessed the severe beatings that Saeed received – at one point seeing him collapse before being taken away. We’re very concerned about his health.”
The man who lost his home was described as a construction worker who has been out of work for years “because the construction industry in California has been taken over by Obama-protected illegal workers.”
“Having lost his home, [he] puts that in perspective with other disasters that the Obama regime has wrought on him,” the report said.
In the interview, the man wore a T-shirt with the slogan “I didn’t vote for the Obamanator.”
A Veterans Affairs whistleblower has exclusively revealed to Infowars that the facility at which he works has engaged in a of cover-up in response to the VA hospital scandal, while also relating the story of how one supervisor expressed his desire to see older veterans “taken outside and shot in the head.”
Just one day after the FBI issues arrest warrants for 5 Chinese military officials, Caixin reports that Fang Fang – the former CEO of JPMorgan Asia – has been arrested in Hong Kong by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (or anti-graft agency). Coincidental timing we are sure; and while details are sparse, the arrest appears linked to the hiring of the children of Chinese officials. Bloomberg reports that Fang declined to comment after being released on bail (under restrictions not to leave Hong Kong).
They are without a doubt the worst organization I have ever dealt with. Keep suing them America! They deserve it!!” is the way one Bank of America client described the bank and the current actions that many of the mortgage banking business are undertaking will not improve the situation.
As Reuters reports, many of the 20 million homeowners in America are being held hostage on their mortgage modification process by an extra clause being added to the docs: they could not say or print or post anything negative about the provider, ever. These “gag orders” are becoming more frequent and Consumer law defenders are concerned, “”If your servicer screws up, you can’t say anything about it… the homeowner has no defense.”
The non-disparagement clauses are meant to protect banks from public insults from borrowers but the CFPB said the practice was “unfair,” and has already required two servicers to cease the practice… “The banks are attempting to hold our clients hostage with a provision they know we cannot agree to… it is coercive and unethical.”
Secret arrests, torture and even murder are now part of our legal system, but they are only a means to an end. The criminal elite must be planning something of monumental proportions to go to the lengths that we are witnessing under the auspices of the NDAA and accompanying gun control legislation.
George W. Bush was partially correct when he said that “they hate us for our freedoms”. This administration does hate us for the few freedoms that we have left. We are all enemies of the state. When martial law is declared this year or next, these words will reverberate inside of your head. And when your jailers are Russian and Chinese, you will wish you would have taken these warnings to heart.
The NDAA is not about protecting us. It is about protecting the state from us.The entire surveillance spy grid is about turning you into a prisoner.
ust over 2 decades ago banker George Soros made his most famous investment by shorting the British pound and pocketing a billion dollars in the process. Since then he has become famous for betting on stock market crashes and in some cases even rigging markets to fail for his own gain.
Just months ago, Soros made headlines by making a billion dollar stock bet against the S&P 500. At the time this was said to be a sign of trouble ahead for the US economy, as Soros has seemed to have had advance knowledge of market crashes in the past. As a result of this reputation, investors have begun to keep a close eye on his holdings.
This week investors took notice again when Soros sold his shares of three major American banks, including Bank of America, JP Morgan and Citigroup.
The Wall Street Journal reported that “George Soros dumped his stakes in banks and went for tech and gold miners in the first quarter, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission Thursday. Soros sold his holdings in Citigroup (NYSE:C) , J.P. Morgan (NYSE:JPM) and Bank of America (NYSE:BAC)”
^^^Why wouldn’t this guy have an NDAA Dentist at this point? Answer: Because the President is the enemy of the Constitution and a clear and present danger. Everyone in the government serves under this State Of The Union. and there is no security or defense currently.
Or simple old retailation? Of course – the big retaliation will be signing the ‘holy grail’ gas deal with Russia tomorrow.
To conclude with the traditional geopolitical balance of power summary: Putin wins (again), Obama loses (again), and the monument to the dollar’s status as world’s reserve currency gets yet another tarnishing blow.
To summarize: while the biggest geopolitical tectonic shift since the cold war accelerates with the inevitable firming of the “Asian axis”, the west monetizes its debt, revels in the paper wealth created from an all time high manipulated stock market while at the same time trying to explain why 6.5% unemployment is really indicative of a weak economy, blames the weather for every disappointing economic data point, and every single person is transfixed with finding a missing airplane.
Russia and China are planning to increase the volume of direct payments in mutual trade in their national currencies, according to a joint statement on a new stage of comprehensive partnership and strategic cooperation signed during high-level talks in Shanghai on Tuesday.
“The sides intend to take new steps to increase the level and expansion of spheres of Russian-Chinese practical cooperation, in particular to establish close cooperation in the financial sphere, including an increase in direct payments in the Russian and Chinese national currencies in trade, investments and loan services,” the statement said. The two countries are also set to deepen dialogue on macroeconomic policy issues, as well as boost growth in mutual investment, including in transportation infrastructure, the development of mineral deposits, and the construction of budget housing within Russia.
It appears yet again that China’s “strike first” anti-terrorism policy has failed as explosions have rocked Urumqi, the capital city of China’s unrest-plagued Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous region, killing (and injuring) multiple (but unknown) people. Social media suggests 2 SUVs entered the crowded market in the center of the city ploughing down onlookers, throwing explosives from the cars, before a blast was heard. One witness noted that the cars were painted with “uighur” language slogans. Flames and heavy smoke were seen nearby, police are on the scene and the 2 SUVs are being removed. There is no official death or injury count as of yet.
Sometimes a chart is worth a thousand words, and this is one. Real Median household income peaked way back in 1999 at $56,000 and by 2012 it was down 9% – an unprecedented decline. It goes without saying that Washington’s Keynesian ministrations on the money printing and national debt front didn’t much help.
Yet the mainstream narrative blathers on that the business cycle expansion is back on track and that last month’s numbers were a tad better than the month before. The table above says that’s all Keynesian bread and circuses – the fleeting uptick interval between the serial bubbles and busts that our Washington overlords have condemned the people to endure.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their foreheads,
666 Tax slavery, 666 debt slavery, 666 wage slavery, and 666 fiat slavery are four methods that 666 elites employ to extract wealth from the people. To this list we should also add their encouragement of Ponzi gambling. Ponzi asset bubbles are constantly being created and citizens are encouraged to go into debt to “cash in” on bubble profits (or get wiped out in bubble crashes). Those five methods are the major wealth extraction methods they use.
Those who support the cause of human freedom must resist tax slavery by insisting on a government that keeps its spending down to the bare basics. Free people must also support a culture that discourages people from getting into debt and encourages them to get out of debt and stay out. They must demand that government debt be rolled back to zero.
^^^If people remain as they were, marked by the 666 beast; even as they witness the prophetic storm upon this last generation, when the Antichrist confirms the false peace (covenant with many) of Israel and the nations, they shall be sealed unto damnation. People must resist the mark of the beast right now. The cup of fornication and wine of wrath is now overflowing with the blood of every laborer of this last generation from behind the wall of prophetic Babylon right now.
But few people understand what it means to be a fiat slave. Being a fiat slave means that one lives in a country where the machinery of money printing is used to maximize wealth extraction from its citizens.
How do they maximize the wealth they can extract through money printing?
First of all, it is done by increasing of the volume of transactions that take place in a given fiat currency. Each newly-printed unit of fiat is a drop in the bucket in terms of the inflation it creates, and more fiat can be printed without causing serious inflation if a country has a bigger bucket.
For example, Canada’s GDP is about 11% the size of America’s. At first glance this might be taken to mean that Americans can print nine times more dollars than Canadians. But we must also remember that U.S. dollars circulate throughout the world, and Eurodollars and petrodollars also add to the total of U.S. dollar transactions.
Because of extraterritorial dollar circulation, the U.S. might actually be able to print 20 times more than Canada without causing serious (in terms of causing political problems for the money printers) inflation. From this we see why money printers may want to fight wars to protect America’s dollar circulation areas in the Middle East or in Afghanistan, where much of the opium trade is transacted in dollars.
But a country’s fiat transaction volume is only part of the equation.
In other words, “you” dear US taxpayer. And because once you start the bailouts you don’t stop, and since this is merely the first manifestation of what happens to the economy when the true impact of the past 6 years of Obama’s “executive order”-based rule emerge, prepare for many more bailouts.
The good news of course is that it will be up to you again, dear taxpayers, to pay for the physician bills of the drivers of “rolling sarcophagi” made by that other bailed out corporation, GM, whose record 30 recalls so far this year would never have become public knowledge had it not been exposed that its menegement, which was part of both the new and old GM, been actively covering up the shoddy quality of its products and the deaths of its customers, just so the company that only exists thanks to the sunk costs of even more taxpayers wouldn’t incur a few extra repair costs.
And what can be nobler than paying for the healthcare of your fellow human being?
The teleprompter is still hot from all the Obama spit unleashed in his latest sincerely passionate denial that his administration knew anything, anything at all, about what is merely the latest scandal to rock the president, this time surrounding the Veterans Affairs fiasco, and already a brand new scandal is taking shape, this one Obama however will not be able to sweep as easily under the rug. The LA Times reports that the “Obama administration has quietly adjusted key provisions of its signature healthcare law to potentially make billions of additional taxpayer dollars available to the insurance industry if companies providing coverage through the Affordable Care Act lose money.” In other words, yet another taxpayer funded bailout..
Russian central bank demand and indeed global central banks demand is set to continue as macroeconomic, monetary and geopolitical uncertainty is unlikely to abate any time soon. Indeed, it may escalate substantially in the coming months as we move into the next phase of the global debt crisis.
Last week we commented that based on TIC data, while “Belgium’s” unprecedented Treasury buying spree continues, one country has been dumping US bonds at an unprecedented rate, and in March alone Russia sold a record $26 billion, or 20% of its holdings.
“And as I was about to say,” he continued, “you go back and you look at the neo-Marxist literature and look at what they say — you don`t have to listen to what I say — about taking control of health care of the populace and making the people dependent. This is not what America is about.”
^^^2020 is wishful , try this year or 2015 at the latest.
^^^So lets get this straight, Communist China is the model of the Antichrist Babylonian Sodom and Egypt Jewish Talmud scum, the same Rothschild Soros etc… cabal of evil bastards behind the NWO 666 borderless criminal bank system of fiat debt note Sirius Masonic evil, and they have some Muslim (g)od has no son Obozo bastard Opec Zero Interest hegemony stooge spawned by the usual suspects, pandering to every fool that buys sells and trades their 666 socialism. OK. Well, it’s about time for mass slaughter next, that will certainly seal the prophetic false peace and confirm their Antichrist leader. CNN will certainly continue to pitch the Sodom and Egypt line of bullshit nobody with half a brain is buying at this point, while nobody watches anymore network ”programing”.
Antichrist Jewish 666 Zucker, who is famous for his inept tenure as president of NBC, moved to CNN in January 2013 and almost immediately drove its U.S. operation into the ground, with the original cable news network suffering its worst prim time ratings in twenty years.
While we are no experts in either geography (did Iran and Kazakhstan just get a lot closer?) or inter-continental ballistic missile identification (was anyone else test-firing nuclear missiles last night), the skies over Iran were glowing last night with what the news agency astrological experts said was “according to previous experiences, guessed to be the final stages of a long-range ballistic missile launcher.” This is good news, for Iran, but, according to the Russian Navy blog, they are preparing for another ICBM test-firing next week… so Norway might want to be on the look-out..

Millions of fish are suddenly dying all over the planet. In fact, there have been dozens of mass fish death events reported in the past month alone. So why is this happening? Why are fish dying in unprecedented numbers all over the world? When more than six tons of fish died in Marina Del Ray over the weekend, it made headlines all over the United States. But the truth is that what just happened off the southern California coast is just the tip of the iceberg. In 2014, mass fish die-offs have pretty much become a daily event globally. Individually, each event could perhaps be dismissed as an anomaly, but as you will see below when they are all put together into one list it truly is rather stunning. So is there a reason why so many fish are dying? Is there something that connects these mass fish death events? Has something about our environment changed? The following are just a few examples of the mass fish death reports that have been coming in day after day from all over the globe….
Well, to be honest Janelle, all workers have been told for a generation, and actually much longer than that, that the way to do better is go to college.
So while we appreciate the study’s conclusion, which is what we expected, namely that nearly half of college graduates end up in jobs that do not require a college education (and certainly do not pay well enough to repay the student loans) and as such the delinquencies on student loans are guaranteed to skyrocket in the coming years, we are amused by yet another attempt to make this into a black, non-black i.e., “race” issue, although we have a very distinct feeling that when the topic of student loan forgiveness (and its monetization by the Fed) becomes the pressing political issue in a couple of years, along racial lines is precisely just how this latest government hand out will be approached.
