Fundamentally Important

 Witnessing Tragedy,

​  SYRIA UPDATES: Explosion close to U.S. base in north-east and ISIS attack Syrian Arab Army bus​  , 
Thanks Eleni.

​  These young men were still in school when this war against Syria started. They lost brothers, fathers, mothers, sisters but here they are, sacrificing everything for this country. Despite all the hardships, all the darkness, all the savagery they face, they will keep fighting for each other, for a glimpse of a future even though they have never known what a future is.
​  The West will never prevail. The blood of the martyrs will protect Syria and even though my heart breaks for these broken, stolen lives - the courage of these people defies all description. If only we in the West could exhibit such courage against our ruling axis of evil with it's manipulative, perverted, cold hearts. This world would be a better place. Don't let these souls die in vain.​..
​..Om Al Fouz from Taldara, close to Salamiyah, has lost five sons in the genuine “war on terror”.  
​  “When I lost the first one, I felt as if I had broken my back, I lost the second one only fifteen days later – I thought my heart had broken. Then the third, the fourth, the fifth, each time I grew stronger”.
​  Om Al Fouz also told me: “I have 25 grandsons, I am ready to give all my children for this battle. We are all ready to be martyred, this is our country, our dignity, our honour, our morals. We will never leave this country to anyone else”.

​  Lukashenko tells West to deal with smuggling of children from Ukraine for illegal organ trade​    Thanks Christine.
  Aleksandr Lukashenko advised ill-wishers to deal with a real problem – the trafficking of children from Ukraine to the West for organ transplants: “They bring children from Ukraine, dismember them and take organs out. They should deal with this problem.”

​  Simplicius looks at the new Russian CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency, which is a transactional currency only. He spends a lot of exposition explaining differences between Russian banking, and western banking, which has broken ties with Russia in every way, including the BIS and the SWIFT format. Russian banking is largely a state utility, though there are private, for-profit banks. There are fewer of them, a progressive decrease since peaking under western neoliberalism in the early 1990s.
​  These private banks complain that the CBDC will compete them out of business, but Putin replies that the CBDC will not pay interest, so it won't compete with them for customers who want interest-bearing accounts...
​  That is the start of an interesting segue to Islamic-banking. Russia is setting up a network of Islamic Banks, which are distinguished by not charging interest, so this CBDC will be consistent with Islam, and consistent with traditional Christian injunctions against usury (modified by Roman Popes to fund Crusades and pogroms as "investments"). 
  Islamic banks have a form of sharing profits and risks in any enterprise, joining as partners in the enterprise. This is not new, and it has worked for thousands of years.
​  This CBDC platform is therefore palatable to Iran, and to other islamic nations. Other CBDCs envision the banker being able to remove or modify funds of a depositor, but this appears to be based upon a much more respectful model.
​  Islamic-style finance is inherently stable, not prone to blowing financial bubbles. I have long thought it to be a very good long-term system, which avoids creating debt-slaves.

  War By Other Means: Short Selling JPMorgan Chase , BY ELLEN BROWN   Thanks Christine.
  The Targeted Crypto Banks
  SVB, Signature and First Republic were not insolvent: they had sufficient assets (largely long-term Treasuries) to match their liabilities.
 They were just “illiquid;” they lacked enough readily available funds to meet the unanticipated deluge of deposit withdrawals in March. In fact, no bank could withstand a bank run in which 85% of its depositors demanded their money back in the space of three days, as happened to SVB that month.
  As of December 31, 2022, SVB had roughly $211 billion in assets, which were primarily offset by $173 billion in deposit liabilities; but it had only $13.8 billion in actual cash and “equivalents” – liquid money available to meet withdrawals. It had been flooded with deposits from tech startups funded by venture capitalists, and the startups did not need loans. The deposited reserves had therefore been used to buy Treasury securities, at a time when interest rates were so low that only long-term securities provided an adequate return. Some were marked “hold to maturity,” meaning they could not be sold at all; and the rest could be sold only at a major loss, since old bonds attracted few buyers after interest rates on new bonds shot up in the last year.
  Yet many other banks had followed that path, investing in long-term assets that could not be liquidated or could be liquidated only at a substantial loss. So why did only SVB, Signature and First Republic wind up in government receivership? As explained in my earlier article here, they were considered “crypto-friendly” banks. In a revealing article titled “Operation Choke Point 2.0 Is Underway, and Crypto Is in Its Crosshairs,” blogger Nic Carter details the “coordinated, ongoing effort across virtually every U.S. financial regulator to deny crypto firms access to banking services.” Whoever instigated the raid on the three targeted banks, their stock was heavily short-sold, driving share prices down. This alarmed the venture capitalists, who alerted their tech startup clients. Word spread quickly by social media, and the bank runs were on.
  The Infamous Bear Raid
  In a 2010 article titled “Wall Street’s Naked Swindle,” Matt Taibbi showed that the bankruptcies of both Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, which triggered the banking crisis of 2008-09, were the result of targeted short sales. He wrote:
  [W]hen Bear and Lehman made their final leap off the cliff of history, both undeniably got a push —especially in the form of a flat-out counterfeiting scheme called naked short-selling. … Wall Street has turned the economy into a giant asset-stripping scheme, one whose purpose is to suck the last bits of meat from the carcass of the middle class.
  Even countries have been victims of targeted short-selling of their currencies...
..Banks are vulnerable to short selling only if they are publicly traded. State-owned or city-owned banks are impervious to that sort of attack. The Bank of North Dakota, our one and only state-owned bank, is a stellar example. It cannot be short sold and it is not vulnerable to bank runs, since over 95% of its deposits come from the state itself. The Bank of North Dakota also acts as a mini-Fed for local North Dakota banks, extending a lifeline in the event of capital or liquidity shortages.
  Like the U.S., China has a vast network of local banks; but most of its banks are government-owned. We may need to follow suit as a matter of defense. We need to ensure, however, that the governments owning our local banks actually represent the people. Banks should be public utilities, serving the public interest.

​  Ecuador Descends Deeper Into Chaos Following Assassination of Presidential Candidate Fernando Villavicencio​ 
  In what appears to have been a highly professional hit job, Fernando Villavicencio, one of the eight candidates in Ecuador’s upcoming presidential election, on August 20, was assassinated on Wednesday (Aug 9). The candidate was shot three times in the head by sicarios while boarding his campaign vehicle after a political rally in Quito. Nine people were wounded in the shooting. One of the purported assassins died in police custody after reportedly sustaining a bullet wound during the hit...
​..The Ecuadorean police say the six suspects arrested in connection with the assassination are Colombian, which prompts the question: are they ex-military? This may explain their ability to pull off three head shots from a distance in the middle of a crowd. It’s also worth recalling that Colombian mercenaries were also behind the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse in 2021...
..Before his assassination, 59-year old Villavicencio was placing fourth or fifth in most polls. He took a particularly hard line on the drug cartels that have made life insufferable for everyday Ecuadorians over the last two years. “Being silent and hiding in moments that criminals kill citizens and officials is an act of cowardice and complicity,” he said. “I double down on my decision to go on fighting daily to defeat the mafias.” ...
..But as notes former British diplomat Craig Murray on his blog, Villavicencio’s anti-corruption campaigning was “selective and aimed only at making accusations against left wing figures.” By contrast, he bitterly opposed the judicial process against President Lasso on corruption charges, calling it “a legal atrocity” that leaves the constitution “in rags”.
​  He also helped Luke Harding and Dan Collins fabricate the Guardian’s infamous front page story that Paul Manafort and Julian Assange had held pro-Trump meetings in the Ecuadorean Embassy, which was never corroborated by any other newspaper. As Murray points out, the story was fabricated in order to breathe new life into Clinton’s flagging “Russiagate” invention.

RFK Jr. Renews Demand For Secret Service Protection After Assassination Of Ecuadorian Candidate

​  Former President Donald Trump has declared that he absolutely believes that the 2020 election was stolen - a denial of the central allegation in his most recent federal indictment...
​  On Aug. 8, President Trump said, “I never even thought of this one: 'Trump didn't really believe he won the election.’”
​  He emphatically told the audience of 2,000 at the high school in Windham, New Hampshire, “Let me tell you ... there was never a second of any day that I didn't believe that that election was rigged.”

​  It Was Pelosi: Former Capitol Police Chief Reveals 'Set Up' Behind January 6​ 
  Perhaps most damning is Sund's claim that then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to authorize the deployment of the National Guard at the Capitol despite Sund's pleas, and that federal agencies withheld information and warning signs of potential dangers prior to the riot.
​  "It doesn’t seem like people really want to get to the bottom of it," said Sund, adding "It really doesn’t. And it just gets worse. It gets worse from there."
​  Sund got approval to bring in the National Guard at 2:09 p.m. Before his approval, he alleged that he begged several generals, including General Michael Flynn, to bring the National Guard. The officials told Sund they did “not like the optics of the National Guard” as he allegedly begged for their assistance to intervene in the violence. -Daily Caller
​  "This sounds like a set up to me," Carlson said, adding "I'm sorry, it does."
To which Sund replied:
​  "It gets better. So I beg and beg and he goes ‘well, I’m gonna walk down the hall and we’ll talk to the Secretary of Defense or whoever he’s gonna talk to. Right then I get a notification, oh, I’m still on the call, we have the shooting of Ashli Babbitt. And I said we have shots firing, I still remember yelling over the phone. We have shots firing on the U.S. Capitol, is that urgent enough for you now?"
​  According to Sund, the National Guard didn't show up until 6 p.m., hours after the fatal shooting of Babbitt. He also claimed that the Pentagon deployed resources to the homes of generals, but not the Capitol.

Meryl Nass MD , ‘So Many Pitfalls’: Feds Push School-Based Health Centers as Critics Sound Alarm Over Lack of Parental Consent

  Jane Orient MD ,  COVID-19 Vaccines and Sudden Deaths
​  This sixth installment of our series on negative evidence for adverse effects of COVID-19 vaccines concerns sudden death, a calamity even worse than the effects previously discussed: vaccine antibody-dependent enhancement (VADE),1 infertility,2 disorders of hemostasis,​ cancer,​ and other harms suggested by the autopsies of the vaccinated individuals.5 This is surely an unacceptable risk for a “prophylactic” modality.
​  The “Died Suddenly” moniker popularized by the controversial 2022 documentary became both a sincere distress signal flag displayed by many deeply concerned vaccine skeptics and a contemptuous scarlet letter of shame used by arrogant vaccine proponents to silence any cautionary voices.

Doctors Facing Discipline for COVID Misinfo Sue State Medical Board
— Three doctors are alleged to have given patients unproven treatments, including ivermectin

​  CVS  reported me to the Texas Medical Board for "causing harm" by prescribing ivermectin for COVID. 
It's a "dud" complaint, but I still have to pay money to the Board for their kind efforts, and spend time on "remedial assignements" to keep my medical license, for not getting signed informed-consent from patients for this "alternative treatment".
​  Doctors are free to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID-19, a lawyer representing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said this week.
​  “FDA explicitly recognizes that doctors do have the authority to prescribe ivermectin to treat COVID,” Ashley Cheung Honold, a Department of Justice lawyer representing the FDA, said during oral arguments on Aug. 8 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit.
