ZAP’s Update, November 11th, 2014

If I read this correctly, ZAP is saying we’ll be at the banks tomorrow . . .  Take this with a grain of salt . . .  To date, every single prediction ever made about the RV/GCR, NESARA, or Saint Germaine’s World Trust has been 100% wrong. It is more likely that Dinarians have been financing the war in Iraq, which would explain why Dinar “gurus” rarely mention ISIS/ISIL. -LW


zap_icon_by_slamiticon-d5z2p3tZAP SAYS:

HI ALL

WE ARE LIVING IN A SPECIAL TIME.

LAST WEEK, GRAND FATHER BACKED THE TRN WITH HIS GOLD, AND SET THE STAGE FOR THE RESET.

ON FRIDAY, HE MET WITH HIS COUNTERPART AND SIGNED OFF ON THE GLOBAL RESET. I KNOW THIS FIRST HAND BECAUSE I TALKED WITH HIS COUNTERPART AND WAS TOLD.

THE OTHER INFORMATION FROM THE AGENCIES AND OTHERS IN RESPECT OF THE IMF RELEASING THE CODES HAS FOLLOWED FROM THESE BASE EVENTS. THE INTEL THAT WAS PROVIDED WAS:

“The US Treasury said that the “release letter” (which would include the release codes for the funds already allocated, which are on administrative hold) would be delivered by the IMF to the authorized Platforms on Friday night, but stated that funds would not be available to use until Monday or Tuesday. The IMF requires an 85% concurrence to effect any action and the USA controls 16.75% of the vote which is sufficient to block anything. So this announcement from the US Treasury seems to indicate that the release is finally going to occur and is going to occur tomorrow night.”

THIS INTEL HAS BEEN CONFIRMED TO ME BY THE FAMILY. SO IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE ABOUT TO TAKE OFF TOMORROW, AND BEGIN SEEING TANGIBLE CHANGES OCCUR. IT IS TIME, AND WE HAVE ALL WAITED FOR THIS MOMENT. MANY PIGS HAVE BEEN SHOT DOWN, BUT THERE ARE ENOUGH FLYING OUT THERE TO DO THE JOB FOR HUMANITY. GOD BESS THE PIGS.

Russia, Iran sign nuclear construction deal for 8 units

What’s your take on this? Will nuclear power plants in Iran prevent bombings? Why are two oil-rich countries pursuing nuclear power?


[youtube https://youtu.be/4WQYuOg_F7A]

Russia is to build eight nuclear power units in Iran, as a new partnership agreement, guaranteed by the IAEA, was signed in Moscow on Tuesday.

The head of the Rosatom, Sergey Kirienko, and the chief of the Atomic Energy Agency of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, signed a series of documents, promoting the links in the field of peaceful application of atomic energy between the countries, RIA Novosti reports.

According to the agreement, Russia is to construct eight units with pressurized water reactors “turn-key ready” in Iran. Four of them will be built at the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, also completed by Russia a year ago.

Besides, nuclear fuel for the future reactors will be provided by Russia during the whole life cycle of the new reactors. Spent fuel will be returned for processing and storage.

“It is the turning point in the relations between our countries,” Salehi said. “These friendly actions, taken by Russia will be well-remembered.” He added that now Russia and Iran “have become even closer to each other.”

The partners didn’t touch upon the subject of possible shipment of enriched uranium to Iran.

“We didn’t discuss this question today,” Kirienko told journalists after the signing of the protocol.

The new document has been a protocol to the intergovernmental partnership agreement, signed on August 25, 1992. It marked the decision to continue building a nuclear power plant 18km from Bushehr, on the coast of the Persian Gulf in Iran.

The project will be guaranteed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), as the first unit of the Bushehr has been. It also will fully comply with the non-proliferation regime.

As reported earlier, the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant – with construction started in 1974 by a German company – was completed by Russia in 2013.

Back then it was decided that Moscow would guarantee its operation for two years, and Russian experts would stay on hand to advise personnel and provide technical support.

Iran is currently facing a November 24 deadline to reach an agreement on its nuclear program, within the frame of year-long diplomatic talks. On Monday, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and US Secretary of State John Kerry tried to overcome the problems, and, according to the US State Department, the talks had proven “tough, direct and serious,” yet “there is still time” for progress, AFP reported.

Veterans Sue Banks For Funding Terrorist Attacks on US Soldiers

Now here’s a Remembrance Day (Veterans Day) news story you probably won’t see on mainstream media, even though it is about seeking justice for soldiers. -LW

Vets Sue Banks For Funding Terrorist Attacks on US Soldiers - Top US & World News | Susanne Posel

An unprecedented 200 plus American service men and women (including family members of soldiers killed in Iraq) filed a lawsuit in Brooklyn, in a federal court, citing that banks financed more than 50 attacks on Americans stationed or working in Iraq during the war.

The banks named in the suit are:

  • HSBC
  • Barclays
  • Standard Chartered
  • Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS)
  • Credit Suisse
  • Bank Saderat Iran, UK-based subsidiary of Iranian bank

The lawsuit states that these banks transferred “billions of dollars on behalf of Iran; even after sanctions were placed on the country because of their suspected financing of terrorist organizations.

Court papers filed reveal: “The defendants provided Iran with the means by which it could transfer more than $150 million to the I.R.G.C.-Q.F., Hezbollah and Special Groups, which were actively engaged in planning and perpetrating the murder and maiming of hundreds of Americans in Iraq.”

In fact, the lawsuit explains how the banks cited just happened “to do business with Iranian financial institutions that have separately financed Hezbollah, the Shiite militant group and political party suspected of aiding attacks in Iraq, as well as Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force and other instruments of Iranian state-sponsored terrorism.”

This litigation focuses on how the banks “finance illegal activity” and played a role in handling “tainted transactions” by using the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA) to show the bank’s hand in providing “material support” to terrorists.

Gary Osen, one attorney for the plaintiffs, pointed out: “Does it matter whether a particular bank was the physical conduit of the transfers to the terror apparatus, or is it enough that they were in a conspiracy which made that possible, and that they were, as a legal matter, deliberately indifferent to that result?”

In order to move money, according to the lawsuit, banks “ conspired with Iranian banks to mask wire transactions in order to evade US sanctions.”

It is estimated that at least $100 million was funneled to terrorist groups operating in Iraq under the control of Iran:

  • a Shi’ite militia in Iraq
  • Kataib Hezbollah
  • Quds Force, the overseas arm of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps

This lawsuit alleges that these banks “indirectly facilitated the attacks by entering into agreements with Iranian banks to mask US dollar wire transactions sent through the United States.”

Osen said: “Each defendant understood that their conduct was part of a larger scheme engineered by Iran.”

HSBC has a history of financing terrorist clients from countries such as Mexico, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Syria.”

Back in 2012, in Mexico, HSBC allowed massive amounts of monies to be funneled to drug cartels while simultaneously servicing clients in Saudi Arabian and Bangladesh banks to finance many terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda.

At the time, it was revealed that “HSBC officials working closely with Saudi Arabian banks linked to terrorist organizations.”

In a news article about the lawsuit: “… the four-count criminal information filed in the court charged HSBC with failure to maintain an effective anti-money laundering program, to conduct due diligence on its foreign correspondent affiliates and for violating sanctions and the Trading With the Enemy Act.”

It is clear that “if [the banks] do business with terrorists, [they] can be held liable.”

Signs of cabal defeat are now obvious but, expect one last big push for war

This week’s update from Ben Fulford indicates that real change is happening, all around us. The Bank of England has declared that taxpayers will not be on the hook for failing banks. Also, Ben was part of a panel that discussed a wide variety of formerly taboo subjects, that I hope will be available to the public, soon. -LW


November 11, 2014

The signs of cabal defeat are now proliferating to an extent that can no longer be hidden from any but the most deeply brainwashed people in the West. The most obvious sign is the APEC meeting winding up today in China. There three of the world’s largest oil producers, Canada, Russia and Qatar signed new deals to trade oil in Yuan. This makes it a mathematical certainty the petrodollar is finished. Russia also announced it was de-pegging the Ruble from the petrodollar.

In England, meanwhile, multiple senior politicians are working towards creating government currency to replace the 300 year old Rothschild fiat currency regime, according to MI5 sources. On November 20th, for the first time in 170 years, the British Parliament will discuss this issue. This is link to a paper on the subject that has been distributed to all British MPs:

https://www.positivemoney.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Backbench-Briefing-Note.pdf

The Japanese government is also seriously contemplating doing exactly the same thing. This means that all Japanese government debt will be written off in one fell swoop.

There are also indications the corporate government in the United States has gone into full crisis mode. For example, when this writer tried to access the official Russian Ria Novosti news site from his computer and his tablet device, he was redirected to an obvious disinformation site called “Sputnik News.” This came after the Russian government news site put out reports that American mercenaries were shelling the crash site of Malaysian airlines flight 17. This can only be described as an attempt by the American fascist regime to prevent the Europeans from finding out it was their supposed US allies who shot the passenger plane down.

The other sign that something big is going down with the US regime is the fact the Pentagon has warned its troops to not go out with Russian or Chinese women. This is a sort of measure taken in war time to prevent military secrets from leaking out. Finally, CNN has shut down its Russian operations, again the sort of thing that happens in war time.

The Russians, for their part, have started a major push to seize the remaining ethnically Russian districts in the Ukraine as well as the gas fields in the Sea of Azov.

The US corporate government is in no position to win any war against Russia and China at this point in time because neither its NATO allies nor Japan are going to go along with such a suicidal and world-destroying plan.

The more likely outcome will be the overthrow of the US corporate government and the restoration of the Republic of the United States of America.

Another reason for cabal panic is a criminal trial that started on November 10th in London, England where evidence will be presented that the 311 tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan was a terrorist attack. The trial is being held to determine whether UK lawyer Michael Shrimpton gave false warnings about a nuclear terror threat to the 2012 London Olympics. Here is a link to a Daily Mail article about the trial.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2828974/Barrister-bomb-hoax-calls-Defence-Secretary-claiming-London-2012-Queen-targets-court-hears.html

The defendant has lined up multiple witnesses to bolster his claim that the nuclear terror threat was real and that Japan had already experienced a nuclear terror attack. This writer is scheduled to be one of the witnesses at the trial.

The trial is important because it will bring lots of information that has appeared online under the forensic scrutiny of a criminal court. If the evidence is good, it will then lead to criminal charges eventually being filed against the perpetrators of 311. The Japanese and North Koreans involved in the attack have been offered, and have accepted, amnesty in exchange for providing information about 311.

The trial is expected to be a fair one because there are proliferating signs the UK is freeing itself of cabal influence. The ongoing investigation into a high level pedophile ring there is the clearest evidence of this. British newspapers are now reporting, for example, that Sir Peter Hayman, former Deputy Head of MI6 British foreign intelligence was a pedophile rapist. Investigators into the pedophilia network are particularly interested in cases where pedophilia was used to blackmail politicians and influence government policy.

The other indication is that the British and European dominated Financial Stability Board, an international financial regulator, has come up with regulations to make sure tax payers never again have to bail out “too big to fail” financial institutions like happened after the Lehman shock of 2008. This is clearly aimed at the big US banking institutions that own the Federal Reserve Board and looted US taxpayers in 2008.

Japan is also showing signs of being ready to make a decisive break with the cabal. On November 10th, for example, this writer spent much of the day in a Rupert Murdoch owned TV studio with a group of panelists who were allowed to openly discuss previously taboo subjects. This writer talked about how ebola was a US cabal bio-weapon, that Malaysian Air flight 370 and flight 17 shot down in the Ukraine were the same plane and that ISIS was a creation of Mossad and US intelligence. Other panelists made similar claims. One of them, blogger Richard Koshimizu, talked about a homosexual blackmail network involving senior Japanese politicians.

It remains to be seen how much of this will appear when the show is broadcast after editing but the fact that Murdoch is recording such shows is a sign at least one corporate media oligarch is interested in the truth.

Japan is expected to hold another general election in December that could lead to fundamental regime change, multiple government sources here say. There will be a big fight behind the scenes between the old guard behind Abe and the Japan revolutionary faction over the coming days to decide this issue.

Abe has been damaged in Japan after he was forced promise to stop provoking China and to eat humble pie in in order to get a token meeting with Chinese strongman Xi Jinping.

In North Korea, the US agencies recently secretly helped keep Kim Jong Un in power and prevented the take-over of that country by a Chinese led faction, according to pentagon sources. That is why North Korea released its last two American prisoners.

The Pentagon forces in Asia know that it is the Japanese and Chinese who are paying their bills these days. That is why they have an interest in acting as a peace-keeper in the region.

This year, I will wear a poppy for the last time

More and more people are waking up to the lies we’ve been told . . . -LW


I will remember friends and comrades in private next year, as the solemnity of remembrance has been twisted into a justification for conflict

Over the last 10 years the sepia tone of November has become blood-soaked with paper poppies festooning the lapels of our politicians, newsreaders and business leaders. The most fortunate in our society have turned the solemnity of remembrance for fallen soldiers in ancient wars into a justification for our most recent armed conflicts. The American civil war’s General Sherman once said that “war is hell”, but unfortunately today’s politicians in Britain use past wars to bolster our flagging belief in national austerity or to compel us to surrender our rights as citizens, in the name of the public good.

Still, this year I shall wear the poppy as I have done for many years. I wear it because I am from that last generation who remember a war that encompassed the entire world. I wear the poppy because I can recall when Britain was actually threatened with a real invasion and how its citizens stood at the ready to defend her shores. But most importantly, I wear the poppy to commemorate those of my childhood friends and comrades who did not survive the second world war and those who came home physically and emotionally wounded from horrific battles that no poet or journalist could describe.

However, I am afraid it will be the last time that I will bear witness to those soldiers, airmen and sailors who are no more, at my local cenotaph. From now on, I will lament their passing in private because my despair is for those who live in this present world. I will no longer allow my obligation as a veteran to remember those who died in the great wars to be co-opted by current or former politicians to justify our folly in Iraq, our morally dubious war on terror and our elimination of one’s right to privacy.

Come 2014 when the government marks the beginning of the first world war with quotes from Rupert Brooke, Rudyard Kipling and other great jingoists from our past empire, I will declare myself a conscientious objector. We must remember that the historical past of this country is not like an episode of Downton Abbey where the rich are portrayed as thoughtful, benevolent masters to poor folk who need the guiding hand of the ruling classes to live a proper life.

I can tell you it didn’t happen that way because I was born nine years after the first world war began. I can attest that life for most people was spent in abject poverty where one laboured under brutal working conditions for little pay and lived in houses not fit to kennel a dog today. We must remember that the war was fought by the working classes who comprised 80% of Britain’s population in 1913.

This is why I find that the government’s intention to spend £50m to dress the slaughter of close to a million British soldiers in the 1914-18 conflict as a fight for freedom and democracy profane. Too many of the dead, from that horrendous war, didn’t know real freedom because they were poor and were never truly represented by their members of parliament.

My uncle and many of my relatives died in that war and they weren’t officers or NCOs; they were simple Tommies. They were like the hundreds of thousands of other boys who were sent to their slaughter by a government that didn’t care to represent their citizens if they were working poor and under-educated. My family members took the king’s shilling because they had little choice, whereas many others from similar economic backgrounds were strong-armed into enlisting by war propaganda or press-ganged into military service by their employers.

For many of you 1914 probably seems like a long time ago but I’ll be 91 next year, so it feels recent. Today, we have allowed monolithic corporate institutions to set our national agenda. We have allowed vitriol to replace earnest debate and we have somehow deluded ourselves into thinking that wealth is wisdom. But by far the worst error we have made as a people is to think ourselves as taxpayers first and citizens second.

Next year, I won’t wear the poppy but I will until my last breath remember the past and the struggles my generation made to build this country into a civilised state for the working and middle classes. If we are to survive as a progressive nation we have to start tending to our living because the wounded: our poor, our underemployed youth, our hard-pressed middle class and our struggling seniors shouldn’t be left to die on the battleground of modern life.

In Flanders Fields, by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae (1915)

When I was in school, we came to learn this poem by heart.


In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918)
Canadian Army

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

McCrae’s “In Flanders Fields” remains to this day one of the most memorable war poems ever written. It is a lasting legacy of the terrible battle in the Ypres salient in the spring of 1915. Here is the story of the making of that poem:

Although he had been a doctor for years and had served in the South African War, it was impossible to get used to the suffering, the screams, and the blood here, and Major John McCrae had seen and heard enough in his dressing station to last him a lifetime.

As a surgeon attached to the 1st Field Artillery Brigade, Major McCrae, who had joined the McGill faculty in 1900 after graduating from the University of Toronto, had spent seventeen days treating injured men — Canadians, British, Indians, French, and Germans — in the Ypres salient.

It had been an ordeal that he had hardly thought possible. McCrae later wrote of it:

“I wish I could embody on paper some of the varied sensations of that seventeen days… Seventeen days of Hades! At the end of the first day if anyone had told us we had to spend seventeen days there, we would have folded our hands and said it could not have been done.”

One death particularly affected McCrae. A young friend and former student, Lieut. Alexis Helmer of Ottawa, had been killed by a shell burst on 2 May 1915. Lieutenant Helmer was buried later that day in the little cemetery outside McCrae’s dressing station, and McCrae had performed the funeral ceremony in the absence of the chaplain.

The next day, sitting on the back of an ambulance parked near the dressing station beside the Canal de l’Yser, just a few hundred yards north of Ypres, McCrae vented his anguish by composing a poem. The major was no stranger to writing, having authored several medical texts besides dabbling in poetry.

In the nearby cemetery, McCrae could see the wild poppies that sprang up in the ditches in that part of Europe, and he spent twenty minutes of precious rest time scribbling fifteen lines of verse in a notebook.

A young soldier watched him write it. Cyril Allinson, a twenty-two year old sergeant-major, was delivering mail that day when he spotted McCrae. The major looked up as Allinson approached, then went on writing while the sergeant-major stood there quietly. “His face was very tired but calm as we wrote,” Allinson recalled. “He looked around from time to time, his eyes straying to Helmer’s grave.”

When McCrae finished five minutes later, he took his mail from Allinson and, without saying a word, handed his pad to the young NCO. Allinson was moved by what he read:

“The poem was exactly an exact description of the scene in front of us both. He used the word blow in that line because the poppies actually were being blown that morning by a gentle east wind. It never occurred to me at that time that it would ever be published. It seemed to me just an exact description of the scene.”

In fact, it was very nearly not published. Dissatisfied with it, McCrae tossed the poem away, but a fellow officer retrieved it and sent it to newspapers in England. The Spectator, in London, rejected it, but Punch published it on 8 December 1915.

Thanks to Mack Welford for reminding me of this great poem.

LIVE: Remembrance Day draws bigger crowds, higher emotions in 2014

CBC is live streaming this year’s Remembrance Day event. On  this day in 1918, the Great War (WWI) ended. This year also marks the 100th anniversary of of the start of the Great War. -LW


Main event being held at Ottawa’s National War Memorial, where Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was killed 3 weeks ago

Remembrance Day services and commemorations today come amid a rising tide of concern for Canada’s armed services and the memory of those who have protected the country in the past.

The main Remembrance Day event in Ottawa will be held at the National War Memorial, where Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was shot and killed nearly three weeks ago, two days after a man in Quebec drove his car into Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, killing him.

Ottawa police said there will be an increased police presence Tuesday around the memorial where Cirillo was gunned down the morning of Oct. 22, and off-duty officers will be able to wear their uniforms to the ceremony and carry their sidearms.

In a year when poppy sales are breaking records, emotions are running higher than usual on Nov. 11.

Ottawa Shooting Vigil 20141025 Oct 25 Tomb of Unknown Soldier memorial

Hundreds attended a candlelight vigil at the National War Memorial in Ottawa on Oct. 25 to pay tribute to Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, a reservist from Hamilton who was killed there three days earlier. Since Cirillo’s death, people have travelled in droves to the war memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. (Justin Tang/Canadian Press)

Wayne Powell, the Canadian Legion’s district poppy chair for Toronto, told CBC News the legion has been stretched to keep up with demand for poppies, worn as a symbol of remembrance in Canada, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand.

About 80,000 people are expected to attend the Ottawa ceremony, the largest crowd since 1939, when it reached 100,000. Typically, about 35,000 people turn out each year, the CBC’s Hannah Thibedeau reported

Princess Anne was scheduled to join Gov. Gen. David Johnston at the National War Memorial, along with Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau. NDP Leader Tom Mulcair was scheduled to attend the ceremony in Halifax.

Others expected at the Ottawa event include:

  •     Vice-Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, Princess Anne’s husband.
  •     Laureen Harper, the prime minister’s wife.
  •     Sharon Johnston, wife of the Governor General.
  •     Senate Speaker Noël Kinsella.
  •     Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino.
  •     Gen. Thomas Lawson, chief of defence staff.

The commemoration will include the familiar rituals of the piper’s lament, Last Post, the artillery salute and the recitation of the Act of Remembrance taken from Laurence Binyon’s poem, For the Fallen:

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old ….”

There will be a formal rededication of the memorial itself, to add the dates of the Afghanistan mission and the South African War.

There is also a new inscription: “In Service to Canada — Au service du Canada.” The government says the inscription is intended to recognize all who serve, be it in the past, present or future.

Since Cirillo’s death, people have travelled in droves to the war memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at its foot. They have carpeted the steps with bouquets, poppies, photos, poems, written tributes, stuffed animals, a can or two of beer, even a battered hockey stick.

The formal ceremony, including dwindling numbers of Second World War veterans and ranks of serving soldiers, sailors and air personnel, will likely only increase interest, especially since temperatures are forecast to be warmer than usual Tuesday.
