Assange keeping on in Ecuadorian London.  He discusses the US lawsuits that are geared up if they can ever get their hands on him.

Looks like he's been playing some Witcher 3.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has spent nearly three years inside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, where he has political asylum. Assange faces investigations in both Sweden and the United States. A secret grand jury in Virginia is investigating WikiLeaks for its role in publishing a trove of leaked documents about the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, as well as State Department cables. In Sweden, he’s wanted for questioning on allegations of sexua...

In Yanis Varoufakis’s leaked “Plan B” phone conversation he details a key aspect of “the kind of institutional problems…and institutional impediments to carrying out an independent policy for ameliorating the affects of having our banks being closed down by the ECB.”  The problems the Plan B team ran into were institutional arrangements that impede the national sovereignty of Greece.  The currency union was, in fact, designed around the principle of diminishing national sovereignty.  Varoufakis’s insider account of the political and bureaucratic dynamics occurring within the Euro are fascinating.  That Germany wants Greece out of the Euro so it can bargain for its own control, that is, mere relative independence, while it wants all of its rivals, France being the most important, desperate and without mere relative independence is telling. 

Also worthy of note, is the very last lines of the blog post: "Marsh wraps up the teleconference by noting there were 84 callers from around the world, and reminding everyone Varoufakis’ remarks were under the so-called Chatham House rules, which means the information can be passed on but Varoufakis should not be cited as the source of the information."

Where Chatham House Rule is applied is evidence of the connection to the globalist agenda setters in Chatham, CFR, BB, TC, etc.  These organizations are created for a temporal purpose.  A now we know, if we didn't before(...), that "The London-based Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum, headed by two ex-Financial Times scribes" knows the game because they know the rule[s].

Kissinger identifies the habit of becoming emotionally dependent on social networks as a hindrance to the realities (or necessities) of functioning in positions in government.  I'm pretty sure the same can be said for virtually everything.  John Mayer said the same thing about needing people to assent to twitter comments.

Well worth a watch if you are familiar with international relations.

The United States of Europe:  An anachronistic use of "United States" comparable to the colloquial use of the phrase "gold standard."

"A great obstacle to good education is the inordinate passion prevalent for novels, and the time lost in that reading which should be instructively employed. When this poison infects the mind, it destroys its tone and revolts it against wholesome reading. Reason and fact, plain and unadorned, are rejected. Nothing can engage attention unless dressed in all the figments of fancy, and nothing so bedecked comes amiss. The result is a bloated imagination, sickly judgment, and disgust towards all the real businesses of life." - Thomas Jefferson on Fiction (to Nathaniel Burwell, March 14, 1818).

I have to first be the change that I wish to see. Of course this is not a novel idea, but it is hard work.

"You can really limit a person's potential by defining it for them at a young age. [Doing so] is a human weakness and a lack of character; a lack of someone explaining to them where true happiness comes from."

It amazes me that Joe Rogan can have these kinds of insights when the people in society that we ascribe as having them do not.  It is a self-referencing irony.

Varoufakis learned from Valve how companies inflate the value of digital goods.  He knew what the banks were up to; the same thing valve does when they get people to pay outrageous prices for prestige items in a video game; Valve sucks money from each transaction between other people.

Whether you like him or not, former Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis is now a political legend. Here’s why: 1. The way he communicates With his blog and his Twitter account , he speaks directly to the people, his fans and his detractors, when he wants, how he wants it, without the media filter. Non-verbal communication is important too. The infamous video of Varoufakis…
