AMSTERDAM -- The Dutch central bank shuttered DSB Bank NV, a struggling consumer and mortgage lender, after a run by depositors that followed a call from a consumer group to pull money out of the controversial institution.
The government said it would begin an investigation into what happened at the bank, a privately owned institution with reported assets of some €8 billion ($11.77 billion).
The DSB seizure was described by the… Continue

The world of info wars can be a very murky one indeed, laden with double agents, NWO shills who cloak themselves as info warriors. It’s an absolute mine field, a veritable quagmire of disinformation in the war for your mind.

DESPITE electing an unusually liberal president, on at least one measure Americans are more conservative than at any time before. Public support for a ban on handguns has fallen to 28%, the lowest level in nearly 50 years, according to a new poll from Gallup. When Americans were first asked the question in 1959, 60% were in favour of introducing a law to ban handguns, but support has declined steadily. Enthusiasm for stricter laws relating to the sale of firearms is also ebbing, falling from… Continue

Twenty-five countries voted for the resolution, while six were against.
Both Israel and the US opposed… Continue

Our view is that the elitists are currently buying time for the dollar, and stalling the rally in precious metals, by weakening other currencies until they are ready for the big stock takedown/correction. This process of supporting the dollar is becoming extremely expensive and difficult, so they had to take the Dow down 200 points on Thursday to start some stock contagion in Asia and Europe to flush some money into dollars and treasuries.
The FTSE, Nikkei and Hang Seng were all down… Continue

It has spent nearly two decades using radio waves to probe Earth's magnetic field and… Continue

When looking at how our rulers are treating us, I’m always reminded of scenes in a slaughter house. Some of the animals do realise what’s about to happen, but the system of gates, barriers and tasers force them to march into their certain death.
Only a small minority of us have the mental capacity to recognise that our world is just a Matrix-like virtual reality and that we are blindly marching towards a one-world tyranny. Even fewer of us have the psychological make-up to stand up… Continue

Employers in California, the most populous U.S. state, are expected to keep cutting staff in 2010 as the wider U.S. jobs market recovers.
