McDonald’S CLOSES 700 LOCATIONS IN FIRST HALF OF 2015

By Ashlee Kieler April 23, 2015


(Mike Mozart)

Just yesterday McDonald’s new CEO Steve Easterbrook claimed that he was in the midst of developing a turnaround plan for the once unstoppable fast food force. However, it appears his ideas on how to reverse sagging sales and criticism of labor practices comes a bit too late for about 700 locations that have already closed or are slated for closing this year.

Fortune reports that the Golden Arches shuttered 350 poorly performing stores in the U.S., Japan and China in the first part of 2015. Those stores are in addition to 350 other stores that were already targeted for shutdown in the first three months of the year.

McDonald’s CFO Kevin Ozan told analysts on Wednesday that these shuttered restaurants were chosen after comparable sales for the locations fell between 2.3% and 4.8% in the first quarter of the year.

Although the closure of 700 stores seems like a lot, it’s only a small fraction of McDonald’s 32,500 stores worldwide.

Analysts tell Fortune that the unexpected closures signify one way in which McDonald’s is attempting to aggressively address slumping sales.

McDonald’s announced Wednesday that same-store sales were down 2.6% in the first quarter, despite the company’s massive media push with its “lovin’” campaign, which briefly allowed random customers to pay with non-currency like hugs. The marketing, which included prominent Super Bowl advertising, increased brand awareness of McDonald’s but failed to improve sales or consumers’ feelings toward the company.

Other measures to bring the company back to its glory days included a Turnaround summit that some franchisees called a farce, and recently announced pay hikes for employees at certain company-owned stores.

Still, as Consumerist reported Wednesday, Easterbrook will provide actual details on new plans to turnaround the fast foot giant during a May 4 strategy call.

LES LEADERS D'AFRIQUE ET D'ASIE PRÔNENT UN NOUVEL ORDRE ECONOMIQUE MONDIAL 

L’équipe du site



Il est impératif de bâtir un nouvel ordre économique mondial ouvert aux pays émergents, a déclaré  le président indonésien Joko Widodo à l'ouverture du sommet Asie-Afrique qui se tient à Jakarta, la capitale de l'Indonésie.

"Ceux qui insistent pour que les problèmes économiques de la planète ne soient réglés que via la Banque mondiale, le Fonds monétaire international (FMI) et la Banque asiatique de développement (Bad) s'accrochent à des idées dépassées. Le changement s'impose. Il est impératif de bâtir un nouvel ordre économique mondial qui soit ouvert aux nouvelles puissances économiques émergentes", a indiqué le chef de l'Etat indonésien.

De son côté, le président iranien Hassan Rohani a souligné dans son discours au sommet que l'intervention étrangère armée avait détérioré la situation en Syrie et au Yémen.

"Les crises et les conflits qui se poursuivent, renforcés par l'intervention armée d'Etats étrangers, ont provoqué une catastrophe humanitaire dans les régions embrasées par la crise", a déploré le chef de l'Etat iranien.


Cela dit,le président iranien Rohani et son homologue indonésien, Joko Widodo, ont appelé à l'essor de la coopération économique bilatérale dans différends domaines.

Lors d'une entrevue, qui a eu lieu en marge de la deuxième journée du Sommet Asie-Afrique à Jakarta, les présidents iranien et indonésien ont eu des échanges de vue sur les questions bilatérales, régionales et internationales. Les deux hommes ont plaidé pour la promotion des coopérations bilatérales dans différents domaines.


Au cours de leurs entretiens, Hassan Rohani et Joko Widodo, ont notamment inisté sur l'élargissement de la coopération économique. Le volume des échanges commerciaux entre l'Iran et l'Indonésie a atteint en 2012 les deux milliards de dollars, un chiffre qui était de 600 millions de dollars en 2010.

En 2013 et en raison des sanctions illégales contre le programme nucléaire pacifique iranien, la valeur des échanges commerciaux bilatéraux a baissé de nouveau à 600 millions de dollars, comprenant principalement les exportations des produits indonésiens vers l'Iran.

L'AUTRICHE NE GARANTIT PLUS LES DEPÔTS BANCAIRES 

Publié par wikistrike.com sur 27 Avril 2015, 10:07am

Catégories : #Economie



A l'heure actuelle, les dépôts des Autrichiens sont garantis par le gouvernement à hauteur de 100.000 euros - la première moitié de cette somme étant à couvrir par la banque en difficulté, et l'autre par l'État. Depuis juillet, en revanche, l'État sera exclu de ce processus de garantie, et un fonds d'assurance des dépôts sera mis en place et financé par les banques pour faire face aux difficultés potentielles. 

Ce fonds sera alimenté graduellement au cours de ces dix prochaines années pour atteindre 1,5 milliard de dollars. Dans l'éventualité où une faillite bancaire survenait au cours de ces dix prochaines années, le fonds aurait la possibilité d'emprunter à l'international, bien que selon Die Presse, le fournisseur de ce prêt éventuel et les termes y étant liés ne sont pas encore très clairs. En revanche, même si ce fonds représentait un jour 1,5 milliard d'euros, il serait inadéquate face à un effondrement bancaire. 

1,5 milliard d'euros, ce n'est que 0,8% des dépôts en Autriche. Il n'y a que très peu de chances qu'une banque majeure soit couverte correctement, et dans l'éventualité de faillites de banques concurrentes, une majorité des épargnants pourraient se retrouver sans le sou. 

Die Presse cite l'exemple de Bank Corp., en Bulgarie. Lorsque cette banque s'est effondrée, elle disposait d'1,8 milliard d'euros de dépôts, mais le fonds d'assurance ne contenait qu'un milliard d'euros. 

Pour ce qui est du côté positif, « les héritages, les transactions en biens immobiliers, les dots et les divorces seront protégés pour une durée de trois mois, pour une somme allant jusqu'à 500.000 euros » - Die Presse, Google Translate. 

Le fait que la structure de base de cette législation ait été mise en place en Europe il y a deux ans et que la décision de l'Autriche entre en vigueur cet été en dit long. Le 27 juin 2013, le Ministre irlandais des finances, Michael Noonan, a déclaré que les bail-ins étaient désormais la norme. 

L'article de Die Presse suggère que les Autrichiens aient pu obtenir une dérogation ou une exemption face à la loi sur les plans de sauvetage mise en place en 2013. « Les bail-ins sont désormais la norme », comme l'a déclaré le Ministre irlandais des finances Michael Noonan en juin 2013. Noonan a alors qualifié la décision de ne plus considérer les dépôts bancaires comme sacrosaints de « révolutionnaire ». Il n'en est pas moins que les investisseurs et les déposants demeurent pour la plupart inconscients des risques présentés par un bail-in pour leurs dépôts personnels mais aussi pour le système financier et l'économie dans son ensemble. 

A l'époque, les déposants qui disposaient de moins de 100.000 euros n'avaient aucune idée des risques encourus par leur épargne, alors même que l'Union européenne travaillait à abolir la responsabilité des États face à ces dépôts. 

Le journal roumain Bursa soulève qu'il ne s'agit pas ici d'une expérience monétaire menée dans une nation périphérique de la zone euro. L'Autriche appartient au cœur de l'Europe. 

Ce qui se passe aujourd'hui en Autriche se passera dans le reste de l'Union européenne. Il se pourrait que l'Autriche ait été chargée de prendre cette décision la première précisément parce qu'elle anticipe des faillites bancaires suite à l'effondrement de sa plus mauvaise banque, Heta. 

De nombreuses banques autrichiennes sont aussi très exposées aux pays et aux marchés immobiliers de l'Europe de l'est. Les banques autrichiennes sont les plus exposées aux pertes potentielles issues des sanctions imposées à la Russie, selon Fitch et le FMI. Les créanciers français, suédois et italiens sont également vulnérables, a précisé le FMI. 

L'épargne placée entre les mains du système bancaire insolvable n'est plus en sûreté. Où devrions-nous donc placer notre épargne ? 

Comme l'explique Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, les déposants « devront observer en détails la situation de la banque auprès de laquelle ils décident de placer leur épargne. C'est une tâche extrêmement difficile, en raison de la complexité des rapports financiers et des interdépendances sur le système bancaire ». 

Bien que l'Autriche puisse être la première à établir une telle législation, il n'est pas certain que les épargnants, notamment dans les nations périphériques, soient mis au courant du risque encouru par leurs dépôts.


Ce sont des évènements de grande importance. Les épargnants ne peuvent plus se reposer sur l'État pour protéger leurs dépôts. Voilà qui offre une bonne raison aux déposants d'allouer une parte de leur épargne à de l'or physique déposé hors du système bancaire et dans les régions les plus stables de notre planète.

NORTH CAROLINA CIVIL FORFEITURE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGtFWC-12-w&hd=1

IJ client Lyndon McLellan


United States v. $107,702.66
North Carolina Civil Forfeiture
 

Lyndon McLellan has spent more than a decade running L&M Convenience Mart, a gas station, restaurant, and convenience store in rural Fairmont, North Carolina. Then, one year ago, without any warning, agents from the IRS seized his entire bank account, totalling more than $107,000.

With that, Lyndon entered the upside down world of civil forfeiture, where the government can seize and keep ordinary Americans’ property without ever charging them with a crime.

The IRS and Department of Justice are pursuing forfeiture of Lyndon’s money despite a recent policy change designed to prevent precisely these kinds of cases. In October 2014, the IRS announced that (absent “exceptional” circumstances) it would pursue forfeiture in cases like Lyndon’s only where there was evidence that the money being seized was derived from illegal activity. The U.S. Department of Justice announced a similar policy change in March 2015.

In February 2015, during a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways & Means Oversight Subcommittee, North Carolina Congressman George Holding told IRS Commissioner John Koskinen that he’d reviewed Lyndon’s case—without specifically naming it—and that there was no allegation of the kind of illegal activity required by the IRS’s new policy. The IRS Commissioner responded, “If that cases exists, then it’s not following the policy.”

When news of the IRS Commissioner’s statement got back to the United States Attorney in charge of Lyndon’s case, he advised Lyndon’s attorney and accountant that he was “concerned” that Lyndon’s case document was provided to Congress, and that:

Whoever made [the document] public may serve their own interest but will not help this particular case. Your client needs to resolve this or litigate it. But publicity about it doesn’t help. It just ratchets up feelings in the agency. My offer is to return 50% of the money. The offer is good until March 30th COB.

Under these new policies, the government should not be pursuing forfeiture of Lyndon’s bank account. But the government has refused to back down, and is actively pursuing the forfeiture of Lyndon’s money.

Lyndon is unwilling to give the government a single penny of his hard-earned money. As he puts it, “It took me 13 years to save that much money, and it took fewer than 13 seconds for the government to take it away.”

Lyndon did nothing wrong. That is why he has teamed up with the Institute for Justice to fight this shocking abuse of power, to get his money back and to make sure the government does not do this to anyone else.

POPE FRANCIS CALLING FOR GLOBAL WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION TO STOP GLOBAL WARMING

Geoffrey Grider | May 3, 2015

Pope Francis is about to release his encyclical about global warming and is expected to advocate for cutting the fossil fuel use that he and others blame for temperature rises.

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.” Revelation 16:13 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: If your perception of Pope Francis is of a sweet, little old man who likes to mumble prayers in Italian and kiss babies on the cheek, get that thought out of your head immediately. Pope Francis is a shrewd, savvy, highly-motivated political player who is throwing the full weight of the Vatican with it’s 1.3 billion followers behind a Marxist globalist agenda to usher in the New World Order. This pope is the game-changer who just may actually be the False Prophet mentioned in the book of Revelation. And is it any surprise that we see George Soros connected to the Pope’s push? Seriously.

A Vatican declaration authored by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS) and others who attended a meeting Tuesday on global warming. The document from participants of the meeting pushes for ditching market economies to fight global warming and environmental degradation.

“Fossil fuel exploitation has also taken a huge toll on human well being,” the PAS document reads.

“Market forces alone, bereft of ethical values, cannot solve the intertwined crises of poverty, exclusion, and the environment,” the document adds. “The move to a sustainable world will not be cost-free for all: the options we face are not ‘win-win.’”



Pope Francis and George Soros…are you kidding me? Nope.

“Present economic systems have been accompanied by the development of unacceptable gaps between the rich and the poor,” the PAS writes, “the latter still lacking access to most of the scientific and technical benefits that we have developed in the industrial world.”

Like former Pope Benedict, Francis is expected to condemn fossil fuels and push for more “just” economic reforms.

We should be prepared to accept a reallocation of the benefits and burdens that accompany humanity’s activities both within nations and between nations,” according to the PAS document.

Pope Francis made headlines this week by promising to weigh in on the global warming debate, meeting with United Nations officials and scientists to discuss the issue and possible solutions to stemming global temperature rises and predicted ecological catastrophe.

Pope Francis and the George Soros connection

Judging by what participants of the Vatican’s climate meeting wrote, the Papacy could come out hard against market economies that utilize fossil fuels for development. But given the authors of the document, it shouldn’t be surprising.

One of the authors is economist Jeffrey Sachs who now heads up Columbia University’s Earth Institute. Sachs has been heavily backed by liberal philanthropist George Soros. Years ago, Soros donated $50 million to a project co-run by Sach’s nonprofit the Millennium Promise.

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IS THE BIGGEST FINANCIAL POWER ON EARTH

And just wait after september : The marxist global Wealth Redistribution to stop global warming will steal everything we have.

Control, Finance

Have you ever wondered how wealthy the church really is? In his book, ‘The Vatican Billions’, writer and philosopher Avro Manhattan gives us a glimpse of the true financial worth of the catholic church:

“The Vatican has large investments with the Rothschilds of Britain, France and America, with the Hambros Bank, with the Credit Suisse in London and Zurich. In the United States it has large investments with the Morgan Bank, the Chase-Manhattan Bank, the First National Bank of New York, the Bankers Trust Company, and others.

“The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations such as Gulf Oil, Shell, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, General Electric, International Business Machines, T.W.A., etc.” (...)



“Some idea of the real estate and other forms of wealth controlled by the Catholic church may be gathered by the remark of a member of the New York Catholic Conference, namely ‘that his church probably ranks second only to the United States Government in total annual purchase.’

“Another statement, made by a nationally syndicated Catholic priest, perhaps is even more telling. ‘The Catholic church,’ he said, ‘must be the biggest corporation in the United States. We have a branch office in every neighborhood. Our assets and real estate holdings must exceed those of Standard Oil, A.T.&T., and U.S. Steel combined. And our roster of dues-paying members must be second only to the tax rolls of the United States Government.’” (...)

“The Catholic church, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. The Vatican, independently of each successive pope, has been increasingly orientated towards the U.S. The Wall Street Journal said that the Vatican’s financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.” (...)

“The Vatican’s treasure of solid gold has been estimated by the United Nations World Magazine to amount to several billion dollars. A large bulk of this is stored in gold ingots with the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank, while banks in England and Switzerland hold the rest.

“But this is just a small portion of the wealth of the Vatican, which in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.” (...)



“The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe.

“The pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth, is consequently the richest individual of the twentieth century. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars.” (...)

Mr. Manhattan asks one of the most challenging questions regarding the moral conduit of the catholic church:

“Jesus was the poorest of the poor. Roman Catholicism, which claims to be His church, is the richest of the rich, the wealthiest institution on earth. (…) How come, that such an institution, ruling in the name of this same itinerant preacher, whose want was such that he had not even a pillow upon which to rest his head, is now so top-heavy with riches that she can rival - indeed, that she can put to shame - the combined might of the most redoubtable financial trusts, of the most potent industrial super-giants, and of the most prosperous global corporation of the world?”

I would love to hear the pope answering this question.

I have no interest in their wealth from a personal perspective, but I am outraged of their corruption as a member of the human species. Their wealth is so big that they could create sustainable social programs to end famine on Earth; they have the power and the means to oppose wars; they have the financial resources to create an Eco-friendly planet -- the biblical heaven on Earth.

But how could they be willing to invest in “green technology” when they have huge investments in oil and gas cars manufacturers? In fact, the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars perfectly suit their financial investments.

In conclusion, religion is financially and morally corrupt.

Priests from all over the planet, please open your minds and hearts, and stop indoctrinating your followers! Stop singing about fairytales and start facing the true challenges that lay ahead of us. Confront your superiors and start preaching the TRUTH.

What is your religion, Alexander?

I have been asked this question many times. I was born a christian, but I have no religion -- though I am a spiritual person. I would never knowingly harm another human being or any living creature on Earth. I am, hopefully, becoming a better human being with each passing day.

I am bringing my small contribution to the human species almost every single day, knowing that only together we will achieve a positive future for mankind and for our beautiful planet.

Mostly, I am following my path towards the purest spirituality and, hopefully, I will be able to achieve it someday. I don’t have leaders and I don’t want to become one. I am not following anyone and I don’t want to be followed myself.

You can achieve your highest good and the highest good of others by finding your true path. Follow your heart and you will walk it by tomorrow.

Can you imagine how much money they will make on your death body during the take over of America if the government has a insurance policy on each of you? Can be the same in all countries??? You still think they care for us? You think that with their global martial law and this Roman year of Jubilee 2015 , they will be there to protect us and to bring freedom for all? Military exercises are now taking place all around the world for the final take over of the world by these psychopats who believe to be the gods of this world.

According to CourtTV and the Tampa Tribune, Walmart has been secretly taking out life insurance policies on its employees and cashing them in when said employees pass away. That’s what happened to Karen Armatrout and her family, according to a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court. From the Tampa Tribune:

Armatrout was one of about 350,000 employees Wal-Mart secretly insured nationwide, said Texas attorney Michael D. Myers, who estimated the company collected on 75 to 100 policies involving Florida employees who died.

Myers is seeking to make the Armatrout lawsuit a class-action case on behalf of the estates of all the Florida employees who died while unwittingly insured by Wal-Mart.

“Creepy’s a good word for it,” Myers said. “If you ask the executives that decided to buy these policies and the insurance companies that sold them, they would say this was designed to create tax benefits for the company, which would use the benefits for benevolent purposes such as buying employee medical benefits.

“If you asked me, I would say they did it to make more money.”

According to the lawsuit, the policies were for $50,000 – $80,0000 and were taken out on any employee from 18-70 who participated in Walmart’s health plan. Walmart stopped taking out the policies in 1995, but continued collecting the money on employees and ex-employees who passed away. Walmart canceled the policies altogether in 2000. Creepy is right. According to CourtTV, only six states, Delaware, Georgia, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Vermont, allow companies to take out life insurance policies on their employees without notifying them.

ATTORNEY : WAL-MART COLLECTED ON DEATHS

By Elaine Silvestrini | Tribune Staff Elaine Silvestrini on Google+

Published: July 3, 2007 | Updated: March 27, 2013 at 05:44 PM

TAMPA - When Karen Armatrout died in 1997, her employer, Wal-Mart, collected thousands of dollars on a life insurance policy the retail giant had taken out without telling her, according to a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court.

Armatrout was one of about 350,000 employees Wal-Mart secretly insured nationwide, said Texas attorney Michael D. Myers, who estimated the company collected on 75 to 100 policies involving Florida employees who died.

Myers is seeking to make the Armatrout lawsuit a class-action case on behalf of the estates of all the Florida employees who died while unwittingly insured by Wal-Mart.

'Creepy's a good word for it,' Myers said. 'If you ask the executives that decided to buy these policies and the insurance companies that sold them, they would say this was designed to create tax benefits for the company, which would use the benefits for benevolent purposes such as buying employee medical benefits.

'If you asked me, I would say they did it to make more money.'

Wal-Mart spokesman John Simley said he could not comment because the company has not been served with the lawsuit.

The company settled two lawsuits with employees represented by Myers in Texas and Oklahoma, one for about $10 million and one for about $5 million. He said Karen Armatrout came to his attention when Wal-Mart mistakenly gave her husband's phone number to an Oklahoman who called the retailer inquiring about the settlement.

Myers said he also has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart in Louisiana.

Payouts Up To $80,000

Richard Armatrout, who is retired, does not want to speak publicly about his case, Myers said. Armatrout did not respond to a message left by the Tribune.

Karen Armatrout was 50 when she died of cancer, said Myers, who said she had worked several years in the pharmacy of the store on West Waters Avenue.

Myers said the policy payouts ranged from $50,000 to $80,000, depending on the person's age and gender. They were taken out on all full-time Wal-Mart employees who, in December 1993, were between ages 18 and 70 and participated in the medical benefits plan.

He said the company stopped taking out the policies in 1995 but continued to receive payouts on employees who died, even those who had left Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart, which said it canceled its policies in early 2000 because it was losing money on the arrangement, says the program was intended to reduce its income taxes to help pay rising employee health care costs. Workers were notified and given the opportunity to opt out, the company said.

The Armatrout lawsuit says the policies were all written in Georgia, where the laws allowed such policies to be obtained.

The lawsuit says Wal-Mart used confidential information it received from employees for use in their employment, such as Social Security numbers and dates of birth, to obtain the life insurance policies.

Myers said this corporate practice is not uncommon. He estimates that up to 25 percent of Fortune 500 companies have taken out such policies on employees. The vast majority of the time, the employees didn't know, Myers said.

The practice evolved over time, Myers said. Corporations started by taking out large life insurance policies on key executives, getting tax breaks when they paid the premiums and collecting the payouts.

IRS Not Pleased, Attorney Says

The amounts of those policies grew to the point that Congress limited how much a company could insure an individual for, Myers said. Insurance companies then suggested buying lots of small policies on companies' work forces, the attorney said. He said the Internal Revenue Service has labeled the practice a sham and has successfully litigated the issue against several corporations.

Myers said his law firm has sued corporations for the practice, including Winn-Dixie and Fina Oil and Chemical. The latest case is its first in Florida.

The practice spread beyond top executives in the 1980s when the industry successfully lobbied states to allow employers to claim an 'insurable interest' in the lives of rank-and-file workers.

Many employers seized on the practice because they could borrow against the policies, and the interest paid was tax-deductible. Congress closed that loophole in 1996, but COLI - corporate owned life insurance - remained a popular investment strategy.

The chief appeal was that interest accrues over time on the money in such policies. When a worker dies, the employer collects without paying taxes on the gain.

In 2001, premiums on such policies swelled to $2.8 billion from $1.5 billion the year before, according to a report by CAST Management Consultants of Los Angeles.

AUSTRALIA TO BEGIN IMPLEMENTING GLOBAL-ELITIST ECONOMIC SYSTEM BY DIRECTLY CONFISCATING CITIZENS' SAVINGS

Thursday, May 14, 2015 by: J. D. Heyes



(NaturalNews) The globalists' war on cash is continuing as Australia is set to actually begin taxing physical monetary holdings - in other words, savings.

According to Martin Armstrong of financial advisory firm Armstrong Economics, the compulsory savings tax to be implemented by the continent Down Under is part of what he and others have described as the "new age of Economic Totalitarianism."

"Australia will be the first to introduce a compulsory tax on savings. This is the ultimate Marxist state, for now anyone with spare cash is the enemy of the conservative Tony Abbott government," Armstrong wrote.

He said that it was high time more people began to spread the word to get behind plans to change the game while there is still time. He said that the Australian compulsory tax, which will be part of the nation's 2015 budget, is part and parcel of a larger global scheme to confiscate and control all wealth as a means of staving off financial ruin:

All we do is perpetually borrow year after year with ZERO intention of reducing debt no less actually pay it off. We could not possibly pay off our debts because taxes would have to exceed 100%. There is no way to pay off the debts without eliminating all our freedoms and turn back to a communistic state which just then owns everything.

Get out of the banks, Australians

What needs to happen, he said, is to break the cycle of perpetual government borrowing and taxing to finance its over-spending. If not, it "will lead to the total destruction of Western culture, for we are plagued by insane power-hungry politicians who cannot see past their nose."

The idea behind the Australian measure is that a tax will be placed on anyone who has any savings (ostensibly in banks, which can be identified, tracked and then taxed). Armstrong said the Australian tax is essentially a test bed for Europe and North America, where politicians are likely to watch with interest how things play out in Australia.

"If there is no massive resistance of Australian savers, the rest of the world should expect this outright confiscation very rapidly," he writes.

Although Abbott is ostensibly politically conservative, says Armstrong, he's actually "proven to be a real Marxist" in his policies. He added that the country is headed down a path to an economic abyss from which there may be no return, at least not without massive war and bloodshed.

"Prime Minister Tony Abbott said that the new tax is all about relieving families and small businesses," writes Armstrong. "The problem is clear: there will be no reduction in taxes for these people. Instead, it will only be more money in the pockets of the corrupt and seriously deranged politicians who are destroying Western civilization in the blink of an eye."

He also wrote that Abbott says there are hard decisions ahead regarding the Australian budget and that taxing savings really was inevitable. He adds that the banks will view the new policy as a good move.

Kicking American customers to the curb

"Abbott's anti-capitalism view will undoubtedly put him up there with Lenin, once history is allowed to be honestly documented, perhaps in a hundred years or so," he said.

The decision ought to cause Australians to rush to get their money out of banks, said Armstrong.

"Take your money and buy tangible assets, even gold, but you just cannot store it in a bank. Movable assets will be the key and buying equities in the USA may be the only real game in town to protect money," he notes.

The U.S. government has already begun looking for ways to squeeze every dime it can out of taxpayers. In 2013, Americans living abroad were being forced to take their U.S. dollars out of mostly European banks in order to avoid having to comply with the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act. That legislation requires all businesses (banks, too) to report American assets; it was passed as a means of collecting every dollar in taxes that the government can possibly collect, even from Americans living elsewhere.

In order to avoid being forced to comply with another complex U.S. law, many foreign banks opted to kick American customers to the curb.

MORE THAN 200K OF GREECE’S VERY POOR APPLY TO HUMANITARIAN CRISIS RELIEF PROGRAM



VIDEO : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l1XdSP6t6xA&hd=1

Ajoutée le 19 mai 2015

More than 200K of Greece’s very poor apply to Humanitarian Crisis Relief Program


Exactly 212,897 Greeks have submitted so far requests to be part of the Humanitarian Crisis Relief Program of the Greek government. The majority of the needy seek help with food, while a percentage seeks financial aid to pay rent and an even smaller percentage needs free electricity.

According to data from the Ministry of Labor, Social Security and Social Welfare, the number of people requesting on of the Program measures or combination of them were:

requests relating to food subsidy 84,442

rent allowance 2,610

free of electricity reconnection & free electricity supply 1,569

42,893 people requested a combination of the three Program measures

59,918 people requested a combination of electricity and food aid

20,529 people requested a combination of rent allowance and food

936 requested free electricity and rent allowance

The deadline for submitting applications is Wednesday, May 20th 2015.

Τhe Program criteria aim to provide relief to Greece’s very poor with annual income between maximum €2,400 (single household) up to €6,000 (families with 4 depending members).

The Humanitarian Crisis Relief program was one of the top priorities of the SYRIZA-Independent Greeks coalition government and it was pushed forwards despite the Troika-Institutions objections. After the EU leaders Summit end of March, EU Commission President Jean Claude Juncker had announced to release 2 billion euro to tackle the Greek humanitarian crisis.

PS I have no idea if Juncker sent the money or whether the Greek government tackles the problem on own resources. I also do not know if the program will be expanded to other income classes because a single household can hardly cover basic needs with an annual income of 3,000-4,000 euro (250 euro per month) or a family of four can live on 500 per month.

CANADA - QUEBEC : COMPRESSIONS DE 41 MILLIONS A LA CSDM D'ICI DEUX ANS

La Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM) effectuera des compressions budgétaires de 41 millions au cours des deux prochaines années. Le budget alloué au transport scolaire, la moyenne d'élèves par classe et le nombre de postes de direction seront revus.

La CSDM prévoit revenir à l'équilibre budgétaire à la fin de 2016-2017. Le «plan de retour à l'équilibre budgétaire pluriannuel», adopté mardi lors d'une séance du conseil des commissaires, prévoit que les dépenses seront réduites de près de 23 millions au cours de la première année financière et de 18 millions au cours de la deuxième.

«On va essayer de faire en sorte que ça se passe le mieux possible et déployer les services le mieux possible», a indiqué la présidente de la CSDM, Catherine Harel Bourdon.

Les élus scolaires ont confirmé l'abolition de 17 postes de directions d'établissement. Des services en transport pour élèves handicapés seront réévalués, et des chauffeurs d'autobus seront poussés vers la retraite.

Le ministre mécontent

Lundi, le ministre de l'Éducation s'est montré mécontent du plan de retour à l'équilibre budgétaire proposé par la CSDM. François Blais a indiqué que la tutelle restait une option envisageable.

Le gouvernement peut donner son avis sur le plan de retour à l'équilibre budgétaire des commissaires. La loi oblige la CSDM à obtenir son autorisation pour enregistrer un budget déficitaire en 2015-2016.

La crise à la CSDM a débuté lors du rapport de vérification de la firme Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton. Le document, commandé par le gouvernement du Québec, critique la gestion de la direction de la CSDM. Le ministre Blais souhaite une gestion plus serrée des dépenses effectuées par les dirigeants de la CSDM.

«Je pense qu'on répond à la demande, on fait ce qu'on a dit qu'on ferait, on suit les recommandations de Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton», a dit la présidente mardi.

Par ailleurs, la séance extraordinaire a été perturbée pendant près d'une heure par une cinquantaine d'enseignants opposés aux compressions budgétaires dans les écoles affiliées à la Commission scolaire de Montréal. Ce moyen de pression a fait partie d'un ensemble de gestes adoptés par l'Alliance des professeures et professeurs de Montréal.

«Protégeons l'école publique. Dénonçons les compressions», ont-ils scandé, munis de sifflets et de trompettes. «On a l'impression que l'éducation n'est pas une priorité nationale, on a l'impression que le Ministère choisit d'investir dans le béton plutôt que dans l'éducation», a dit Catherine Renaud, présidente du syndicat.

VATICAN : REVISION DU STATUT DU FONDS PENSION 

Tout le pouvoir économique entre les mains du faux-prophète et du Conseil de l'Economie du Vatican


Le père Lombardi explique les changements apportés au statut du Fonds de pension du Vatican par un motu proprio du pape François, et il estime que la « surveillance externe » est le « point le plus important » du nouveau statut.

Rome, 29 mai 2015 (ZENIT.org) Marina Droujinina 


Le pape François introduit des changements dans le fonctionnement du Fonds de pension du Vatican « à la lumière des innovations qui ont été faites ces derniers temps » au niveau économique et financier, explique le père Federico Lombardi, directeur de la salle de presse du Vatican. 

Le pape François publie en effet une lettre apostolique sous forme de "Motu Proprio", ce vendredi 29 mai.

Le père Lombardi souligne que « les changements touchent la structure de l'administration, et non la réalité du service fourni aux retraités ». Cela signifie « que toutes les procédures et la réalité pratique des retraites des employés du Vatican restent actuellement les mêmes ».

Le premier changement concerne le président du Fonds de pension du Vatican qui ne sera « plus automatiquement le cardinal à la tête de l’administration du patrimoine du siège apostolique » (APSA). Il sera nommé directement par « le Souverain Pontife à un mandat de cinq ans qui peut être renouvelé pour un autre mandat », précise le père Lombardi.

C’est le pape qui choisira le candidat à ce poste dans une liste « d’au moins de trois candidatures », établie par le Conseil pour l’Économie. Les candidats doivent répondre aux exigences du poste, mais « il n’est pas dit » doivent-ils être « religieux », « cardinaux » et ils peuvent être « mêmes laïcs », a noté le père Lombardi.

« Une autre innovation importante concerne le conseil d'administration », ajoute le directeur du bureau de presse du Vatican : sur 11 membres du Conseil, il y aura  « quatre experts en assurance et en gestion des fonds de retraite ou des fonds d'actions, de différents pays, nommés par le Conseil pour l'Économie ». Il s’agit, donc, de « quatre membres extérieurs à la réalité du Vatican. C’est une nouveauté, car avant tous les membres du conseil d'administration venaient de réalités vaticanes », a souligné le père Lombardi.

Enfin, le troisième changement consiste dans la surveillance externe du Fonds : « Le fonds de pension est soumis à la supervision du Conseil de l'Économie, du Secrétariat de l'Économie et du vérificateur général, chacun ayant les pouvoirs qui lui ont été conférés par leurs statuts respectifs », a expliqué le père Lombardi. Mais il y a ensuite une « surveillance externe », qui participe à ces organismes que nous avons nommés: le Conseil de l'Économie, le Secrétariat de l'Économie et le vérificateur général. Voilà, a conclu le père Lombardi, « les points de ce nouveau statut qui me semblent les plus importants ».

CANADA - LES RETRAITES DE LA MINE WABUSH PERDENT LEURS AVANTAGES SOCIAUX


Le représentant syndical Jason Penny  Photo :  CBC

Des centaines de travailleurs à la retraite de la mine Wabush au Labrador perdent l'assurance médicale et l'assurance vie de leur employeur.

Cette mesure touche de 700 à 800 retraités, estime des intervenants.

La mine a fermé l'automne dernier. L'entreprise Cliffs Natural Resources connaît des difficultés financières et cherche à réduire ses coûts.

Le syndicat a été informé lundi que ces avantages sociaux seront abolis le 1er juin. Le représentant syndical Jason Penny affirme que c'est un coup dur pour les retraités.

M. Penny explique que les retraités ont travaillé fort dans la mine, certains pendant 50 ans, avec la promesse qu'ils auraient leurs avantages sociaux toute leur vie. Les travailleurs sont bouleversés d'apprendre qu'on leur retire maintenant ces avantages.

Les retraités n'ont pas encore reçu la lettre de l'employeur, indique Jason Penny. Il ajoute que les retraités peuvent encore bénéficier de leur assurance médicale pour acheter suffisamment de médicaments pour trois mois, à condition qu'ils envoient leur demande de remboursement avant le 1er juin.

ADMINISTRATION PREPS NEW GUN REGULATIONS 

By Tim Devaney - 05/30/15 03:10 PM EDT

The Justice Department plans to move forward this year with more than a dozen new gun-related regulations, according to list of rules the agency has proposed to enact before the end of the Obama administration.

The regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements. Chief among them is a renewed effort to keep guns out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable or have been convicted of domestic abuse.

Gun safety advocates have been calling for such reforms since the Sandy Hook school shooting nearly three years ago in Newtown, Conn. They say keeping guns away from dangerous people is of primary importance.

But the gun lobby contends that such a sweeping ban would unfairly root out a number of prospective gun owners who are not a danger to society.

“It’s clear President Obama is beginning his final assault on our Second Amendment rights by forcing his anti-gun agenda on honest law-abiding citizens through executive force,” said Luke O’Dell, vice president of political affairs at the National Association for Gun Rights.

The Justice Department plans to issue new rules expanding criteria for people who do not qualify for gun ownership, according to the recently released Unified Agenda, which is a list of rules that federal agencies are developing.

Some of the rules come in response to President Obama’s call to reduce gun violence in the wake of Sandy Hook. He issued 23 executive actions shortly after the shooting aimed at keeping guns away from dangerous people, and some of those items remain incomplete.

“If America worked harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there would be fewer atrocities like the one that occurred in Newtown,” Obama said at the time.

“We can respect the Second Amendment while keeping an irresponsible, law-breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale,” he added.

Gun control groups have rallied around Obama’s call to action, zeroing in on polices that would keep guns away from the mentally ill and domestic abusers.

Congressional efforts to expand background checks and keep guns away from dangerous people have failed in recent years, but the legislative defeats won’t stop the Justice Department from regulating.

The Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is looking to revive a rule proposed way back in 1998 that would block domestic abusers from owning guns.

As proposed, the regulation makes it illegal for some who has been convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence offense to own a gun.

The ATF plans to finalize the rule by November, according to the Unified Agenda.
But gun rights advocates are concerned the Obama administration will use this rule to unfairly target certain gun owners.

“That could be a person who spanked his kid, or yelled at his wife, or slapped her husband,” warned Michael Hammond, legislative counsel for the Gun Owners of America.

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Everytown for Gun Safety, and Americans for Responsible Solutions did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

But Everytown, a group financially backed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has argued that keeping guns out of the hands of domestic abusers can be a matter of life or death.

“American women are 11 times more likely to be shot and killed than women in other developed countries,” the group argues. “The high rate of domestic violence deaths in America is directly related to our weak gun laws. But we know that smart gun laws can—and do—stop domestic abuse from turning into murder."

The ATF is also looking to prohibit the mentally ill from owning firearms, which is attracting even more criticism from gun rights groups.

“The Obama administration is trying very hard to disqualify people from owning a gun on the basis that they are seeing a psychologist,” Hammond argued.

The NRA contends that many people who are mentally ill may not necessarily pose a danger to society — or as the gun lobby puts it, the policy “snares masses of mostly harmless individuals.”

Gun rights advocates argue it would be more effective to ban people on an individual basis, as opposed to banning all people who are mentally ill.

“A person who experienced a temporary reaction to a traumatic event or who has trouble handling household finances may well be treated the same as a violent psychopath,” the NRA wrote.


"Not only is this unjust and stigmatizing, it creates disincentives for those who need mental health treatment to seek it, increasing whatever risks are associated with untreated mental illness,” it added.

Aside from these issues, some gun rights advocates have also raised concerns about upcoming ATF rules that would require gun dealers to report gun thefts, provide gun storage and safety devices, and place restrictions on high-powered pistols, among other things.

“The Obama administration hates the Second Amendment, and it’s clear that every place where it can push, it will,” said Hammond. “This is an indication of an anti-gun administration trying to annoy us in any way it can."

IRS FINALLY ADMITS ILLEGALS CAN GET BACK TAXES UNDER OBAMA AMNESTY


Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 2, 2015, before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee hearing examining the IRS data breach. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin) more >

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Wednesday, June 3, 2015
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen has confirmed to Congress that illegal immigrants granted amnesty under President Obama’s new programs could claim back refunds even when they never filed returns to pay their taxes in the first place.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, who had pressed Mr. Koskinen over the issue, released written responses Wednesday in which the commissioner admitted he’d botched the question earlier and, in fact, illegal immigrants granted the amnesty will now be able to claim refunds on tax returns they never even filed, thanks to the Earned Income Tax Credit.

“To clarify my earlier comments on EITC, not only can an individual amend a prior year return to claim EITC, but an individual who did not file a prior year return may file a return and claim EITC (subject to refund limitations under section 6511 of the Internal Revenue Code),” Mr. Koskinen said.

He insisted, however, that he doubts many illegal immigrants will take advantage of the loophole because they would have to be able to prove their earnings for those years they never filed returns.

“Filers would have to reconstruct earnings and other records for years when they were not able to work on the books,” he said.

Taxpayers must have Social Security numbers in order to claim the EITC, and illegal immigrants aren’t supposed to have numbers. But Mr. Obama’s new deportation amnesty grants illegal immigrants work permits, which are then used to obtain Social Security numbers.

IRS lawyers have ruled that once illegal immigrants get numbers, they can go back and refile for up to three previous years’ taxes and claim refunds even for time they were working illegally.

The lawyers said since the EITC is a refundable credit, that’s allowed even when the illegal immigrants worked off the books and never paid taxes in the first place.

“Section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code requires an SSN on the return, but a taxpayer claiming the EITC is not required to have an SSN before the close of the year for which the EITC is claimed,” Mr. Koskinen said. “At your request, the IRS has reviewed the relevant statutes and legislative history, and we believe that the 2000 Chief Counsel Advice (CCA) on this issue is correct.”

Mr. Koskinen had initially said illegal immigrants could claim refunds, but only for years they’d filed returns and presumably had paid some taxes.

Most of Mr. Obama’s amnesty is on hold after federal courts ruled he likely broke the law by acting on his own without Congress‘ approval and without putting his policy out for public review and comment.

But a 2012 policy that applies to so-called Dreamers, or young adult illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, is in effect.

Homeland Security has approved 664,607 initial applications for Dreamers, and approved another 243,872 renewals over the last year, extending the initial two-year amnesty for another two years.

URGENT! BANKS IN “HOSTILE” JADE HELM TERRITORIES CLOSING THEIR DOORS!

The Giver June 6, 2015


http://www.consciouslyenlightened.com/urgent-banks-in-hostile-jade-helm-ter…

The online watchdog group Operation Jade Helm And Beyond just received the following, terrifying message from a great American in the field:
Citation:



My guestion is why are they closing all the banks here in Calexico, Ca.? Also I am now getting a popup that at the end says die. I live here and as of the middle of this month or next they will all be closed. We will have to go to El Centro to access a bank.



A quick Google search to see if this was true or not confrimed that it is. From the onlince source ivpressonline, and in regard to a Bank of America branch in Calexico:

Citing the changing needs and behaviors of its customers, Bank of America has announced that its branch office in Calexico will close June 16. The pending closure comes on the heels of other recent and pending bank closures in the city.

Public officials are planning to meet in the coming days to discuss the troubling trend, said Mayor John Moreno.

WHY IS THE EU FORCING EUROPEAN NATIONS TO ADOPT "BAIL-IN" BY THE END OF THE SUMMER?

By Michael Snyder

Are they expecting something to happen?  As you will read about below, the European Union says that any nation within the EU that does not enact “bail-in” legislation within the next two months will face legal action.  The countries that are being threatened in this manner include Italy and France. If you fast forward two months from this moment, that puts us in early August.  So clearly the European Union wants everything to be squared away by the end of the summer.  Is there a reason for this?  Are they anticipating that something really bad will happen in September or thereafter?  Why such a rush?

We all remember what happened when major banks were “bailed out” during the last financial crisis.  A tremendous amount of taxpayer money was given to the big banks to help prop them up so they wouldn’t fail.  This greatly upset a lot of people.

Well, when the next great financial crisis hits Europe, banks are not going to get “bailed out” this time.  Instead, we are going to see “bail-ins”.

So precisely what is a “bail-in”?

Essentially, what happens is that wealth is transferred from the “stakeholders” in the bank to the bank itself in order to keep it solvent.  That means that creditors and shareholders could potentially lose everything if a major bank in Europe fails.  And if their “contributions” are not enough to save the bank, those holding private bank accounts will have to take “haircuts” just like we saw in Cyprus.  In fact, the travesty that we witnessed in Cyprus is being used as a “template” for much of the new legislation that is being enacted all over Europe.

The bottom line is that not a single bank account in the European Union will ever be truly safe again.

By this time, everyone in the EU was already supposed to have enacted “bail-in” legislation, but some countries in Europe have been dragging their feet.  So now the European Commission (the executive body of the European Union) is giving them a hard deadline.  According to Reuters, any nation that has not passed “bail-in” legislation within two months will be subject to legal action…
Citation:



The European Commission on Thursday gave France, Italy and nine other EU countries two months to adopt new EU rules on propping up failed banks or face legal action.


Citation:



The rules, known as the bank recovery and resolution directive (BRRD), seek to shield taxpayers from having to bail out troubled lenders, forcing creditors and shareholders to contribute to the rescue in a process known as “bail-in”.


So which countries are being threatened?

http://activistpost.net/backyardliberty.htmlIt turns out that there are 11 of them.  The following comes from Mark O’Byrne
Citation:



The article “EU regulators tell 11 countries to adopt bank bail-in rules” reported how 11 countries are under pressure from the EC and had yet “to fall in line”. The countries were Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, France and Italy.


Citation:



France and Italy are two countries who are regarded as having particularly fragile banking systems.


But why only two months to get this done?

When I was in law school, I took an entire course on European Union law.  Normally, things in Europe take a very long time to get done.  It is out of character for the European Commission to rush to get something like this done so quickly.

Could they be anticipating that this legislation will need to be put into use very soon?

What we do know is that bonds in Europe have already been crashing, and it appears that the European Central Bank is starting to lose control over European financial markets.

And we also know that there has been a sustained bank run in Greece.  In fact, it is being reported that 700 million euros were pulled out of Greek banks on Friday alone.  Personally, I think that anyone that still has any money in Greek banks is absolutely insane.  Some day in the not too distant future, Greek bank account holders are going to be in for a “haircut” just like we saw in Cyprus.  The following comes from Zero Hedge
Citation:



While the Greek government believes it may have won the battle, if not the war with Europe, the reality is that every additional day in which Athens does not have a funding backstop, be it the ECB (or the BRIC bank), is a day which brings the local banking system to total collapse.


Citation:



As a reminder, Greek banks already depends on the ECB for some €80.7 billion in Emergency Liquidity Assistance which was about 60% of total deposits in the Greek financial system as of April 30. In other words, they are woefully insolvent and only the day to day generosity of the ECB prevents a roughly 40% forced “bail in” deposit haircut a la Cyprus.


But of course Greece will only be just the beginning.  In the end, I expect major banks to fail all over Europe as we head into the greatest financial crisis that Europe has ever seen.  Bank account holders all over the continent could end up having to take “haircuts”, and that would just make the coming deflationary cycle in Europe a lot worse.

And I actually expect events in Europe to start accelerating greatly by the end of this calendar year.  Apparently the top dogs in the European Union are also concerned about the immediate future, because they are rushing to get “bail-in” legislation passed in every nation in the EU by the end of the summer.

http://activistpost.net/bitcoinalliance.htmlFortunately, the United States has not moved in a similar direction – at least not yet.  It is always possible that during an “emergency situation” anything can happen.  We saw that in Cyprus.  But for the moment, European bank accounts appear to be more vulnerable than U.S. bank accounts.

Not that any of us should have much confidence in the major banks in the United States either.  Since the end of the last financial crisis they have become more reckless than ever.  At this point, the six largest banks in this country collectively have 278 trillion dollars of exposure to derivatives.  A day is coming when the “too big to fail” banks will actually start failing, and that will absolutely cripple our economy.

We are moving into a time of great financial instability.  During such a time, one of the keys will be to not have all of your eggs in one basket.  That way it will be more difficult for your wealth to be wiped out by a single event.

So what other advice would you give to people that are wondering how to deal with the coming global banking crisis?  Please feel free to add to the discussion by posting a comment below…
