Is Bitcoin In A Bubble? Yes or No?
by Matt Sherriff
Posted on June 14, 2017
Is Bitcoin in a bubble? That is question on many peoples minds, especially those reading certain headlines.
As Bitcoin continues on a bull trend the question of bitcoin being in a bubble continues to arise. There are multiple factors attributing to this and we are going to go through a balanced argument and come to some kind of conclusion. Everybody has their own opinion in the market, some argue for the bubble, some against, others are impartial.
Bare in mind, I won’t get to my opinion until the end. I am going to highlight some main arguments being made for both sides.
So let’s look into some things pointing to Bitcoin’s bubble.
Yes, There Is A Bitcoin Bubble
Historically when asset classes, stocks, companies etc rise at an alarming rate they are in for a harsh come down. There has been a lot of talk about the tulip mania centuries ago to explain what is happening. The story in short; there was a time where tulips became very popular and a hot commodity. High value was put on them and they were being traded for goods/services and certain individuals were even paying a high price for them just to have. The tulip bubble burst and they became a regular flower once again. Some are saying this is the same type of thing with Bitcoin, a time of hype and headlines driving the price. I will explain my personal opinion later but tulips make for a terrible form of currency, so it’s much different.
There is a lot of speculative investing going on. People are not getting into bitcoin for it’s first purpose; as it’s made for transactions and illuminating the middle man when moving value digitally. It is not being used for your morning coffee or bacon at the store. Many individuals are getting involved on the premise that it will continue to rise and not necessarily understanding its underlying purpose.
It isn’t real. Gold is physical, resilient and hard to lose. Bitcoin is in digital space, easy to lose and even if you cold store it (in a offline wallet) securely and is not that easy to use. This bubble stems from a lot of hype and there will come a pop once the trend dies off.
No, There Is Not A Bitcoin Bubble
Bitcoin is a true supply and demand platform that is not manipulated like central markets. The term ‘bubble’ has been applied to centralized markets which have been stretched and over leveraged through a fiat system which operates differently.
There is a limited supply. Scarcity is built into the bitcoin framework as there will only ever be 21 million mined. As I write this, just over 16 million have been mined, so stretching this network past a certain capacity is not possible.
The security of the blockchain is high level. The decentralized network works well with security and extremely difficult to hack because of how verification works in the network through consensus of machines all over the world. Security helps with trust. Trust is the aim of the game with any currency.
The world has never seen something like this, a decentralized value of exchange, which the world is slowly waking up to. The fact the market is reacting like this is something which could not be predicted.
My Conclusion | Is Bitcoin In A Bubble?
I see an interesting pyramid that has occurred over the years. Tech people are at the top of the pyramid as they have been pushing and holding cryptocurrency because they understood its value and the fact it is a solution provider. Those people understand code and crazy computer crypto graphical stuff. The next people are not the coders, but big picture thinkers that can see the power of this and get behind it, buy it and hold it. The next set of people are everyone else who waits for it to get big, or somewhat big, and then jump in. I believe I am somewhere in the sentence before the previous one. All things considered, we are still at the very early stages on this industry. Just like the internet in the 80s started out with a lot of hardship and different views, we are in a much different place with 4G data and wifi hot spots. The same change and innovation will happen with blockchain technology and decentralized currency, it’s just a matter of where it’s heading. The future is an exciting place.
**Don’t get me wrong, it is an amazing time to get into the cryptocurrency market. Speculation comes when this happens, “I’ll throw a little money in bitcoin because it seems to be doing well, let’s see how it goes in the future”. That is all well and good, but that’s speculative. What I am trying to say is that the uninformed using this as a pure investment tool could have a speculative mindset. For me, bitcoin is a borderless currency that governs itself, I like having some of the as my currency.**
Furthermore, more and more hedge funds are getting into this space to diversify their portfolios into the digital asset space. That’s always an interesting factor when looking at trends and money being injected into the market.
In that sense, I believe that Bitcoin is in some kind of bubble as I think a lot of people that are involved don’t truly understand what they have in their hands and they are speculatively investing because they see the hype, growth, upwards trend etc. That is why I make a lot of content to hopefully help people understand this space either before or after they get involved with cryptocurrency to know that there are a lot of factors in play going forward.
At the same time, Bitcoin is a beautiful supply and demand market that reacts very authentically with the factors attributing to it as it’s decentralized and cannot be manipulated. The term “bubble”, like I mentioned above, has always been applied to over stretched markets through our centralized systems. We have never seen this type of movement or market before. The housing market in 2008 collapsed because it was over stretched and was far from authentic or transparent. If the ‘Bitcoin bubble does burst’, it will be for very different reasons which is why I don’t think the general term ‘bubble’ can be truly tied to what we have here.
Analyzing trends; supply is capped, demand is rising, security is crucial, trust is paramount so it’s interesting to think what will happen in Bitcoin’s future. Keep in mind, after every bear run (increase in price over time), what happens? The bear comes rolling down the hill (decrease in price). And there is nothing wrong with that, the market goes up and down, but thinking what will happen in the years to come is the real question?
Bitcoin has a bumpy road ahead of it as developments and innovation will take place to improve what it is. All I know is we are at the dawn of one of the largest transfers of wealth in human history, whether that is with bitcoin, or something else in this decentralized space.

Trump sending Jared Kushner to try to restart Middle East peace talks even as president trades war taunts with North Korea
  • President Donald Trump is dispatching his son-in-law to the Middle East
  • Jared Kushner has a portfolio that includes Mideast peace efforts
  • He will be accompanied by national security official Dina Powell
  • Negotiator Jason Greenblatt is also going
  • The peace overture comes during a standoff with North Korea where Trump threatened 'fire and fury'
  • His wife Ivanka Trump is leading a delegation to India 
By Reuters and Geoff Earle
Published: 11 August 2017 | Updated: 12 August 2017
President Donald Trump is sending his son-in-law Jared Kushner and negotiator Jason Greenblatt to the Middle East soon to meet with regional leaders and discuss a 'path to substantive Israeli-Palestinian peace talks,' a White House official said on Friday.
Deputy national security adviser Dina Powell will also be on the trip, which will include meetings with leaders from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, Israel and the Palestinian Authority, the official said.
'While the regional talks will play an important role, the President reaffirms that peace between Israelis and Palestinians can only be negotiated directly between the two parties and that the United States will continue working closely with the parties to make progress towards that goal,' the official said.
Kushner has traveled with President Trump when he has gone abroad, accompanying him to Israel, Saudi Arabia and Italy this year, although he returned home to deal with the swirling Russia scandal.
Trump has given Kushner, a senior advisor who was a real estate developer before joining his father in law's White House, a portfolio that includes Mideast peace efforts.
Kushner spoke about the assignment during a speech to congressional interns that got leaked, observing that 'not a whole lot has been accomplished over the last 40 or 50 years.'
'Everyone finds an issue, that 'You have to understand what they did then' and 'You have to understand that they did this.' But how does that help us get peace? Let's not focus on that,' Kushner contined.
'We don't want a history lesson. We've read enough books. Let's focus on, How do you come up with a conclusion to the situation?' Kushner told the interns, Wired reported early this month after getting a tape.
Kushner added: 'So, what do we offer that's unique? I don't know … I'm sure everyone that's tried this has been unique in some ways, but again we're trying to follow very logically. We're thinking about what the right end state is, and we're trying to work with the parties very quietly to see if there's a solution.'

Hamas summer camp teaches youths to ‘liberate Palestine’1,000 Gaza youngsters jump through fiery hoops, train with live fire for their graduation ceremony
By AFP
August 18, 2017
Hamas held a closing ceremony in the Gaza Strip on Friday for a batch of the 120,000 boys and girls attending the Islamic terror group’s controversial summer schools
The ceremony, for some 1,000 students who took part in camps in the southern city of Khan Yunis, was framed as part of Hamas’s plan to continue its armed conflict with Israel.
Boys between 15 and 18 years of age were put through military drills at the week-long camp, including shooting with live ammunition and training in scouting skills.
They also jumped through fiery hoops and went over obstacle courses.
Hamas official Ashraf Abu Zayed said the training came within the framework of “preparing for the liberation of Palestine.”

“We are trying to invest the younger generation and guide them towards the liberation project,” he told AFP, referring to armed struggle against Israel.
Such camps in the enclave of two million people have been heavily criticised by rights groups concerned with young people’s welfare.
Israel says they indoctrinate young people into Islamist Hamas’s terrorist ideology.
Hamas and Israel have fought three wars since 2008, and Israel and Egypt maintain a blockade on the enclave aimed at preventing Hamas from bringing in arms and ammunition.

Opposing Zionism is not racism, rules Scottish court

Activist from the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign protest Israel's violations of Palestinian rights outside the Glasgow Sheriff Court, Scotland on 10 July 2017 [Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign/Facebook]
In yet another landmark legal victory, members of the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign emerged from court victorious today after being accused of racism. Their “crime”? Standing up to Zionism.
The trial ended three years of speculation and pressure for SPSC members whose robust defence of their actions won the day in Glasgow Sherriff’s Court when the verdict was announced on Friday.
Five days of evidence and cross-examinations earlier this month focussed on the actions of two SPSC members who faced charges of racism and aggravated trespass for a protest against Israeli company Jericho cosmetics, which operates around the Dead Sea in the occupied West Bank. The protest was held in the wake of Israel’s 2014 military offensive against Palestinian civilians besieged in the Gaza Strip. More than 2,200 Palestinians were killed by the Israelis during the offensive, including 550 children, before in the war ended on 26 August. During the demonstration on 13 September 2014, the SPSC protesters denounced the killings.
Police were called to the shopping centre where the protest was being held, leading to the arrest of the two SPSC members accused of racism. “In other words,” explained Mick Napier, one of those arrested, “we were accused of being motivated by hatred of Israelis rather than opposition to Israel’s repeated massacres, apartheid across the whole of Palestine and genocidal violence in Gaza.”
During the Glasgow trial, the SPSC was buoyed by a High Court ruling in London that the Conservative government in Westminster acted unlawfully when it tried to prevent local councils in Britain from divesting from companies involved in Israel’s military occupation. The successful legal challenge for the right to boycott was brought by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign in London, supported by War on Want, the Campaign Against the Arms Trade and the Quakers.
However, Napier wasn’t convinced that the result of the latest trial was a foregone conclusion. “Given their past record, we felt it was unlikely that even this High Court ruling in favour of BDS [boycott, divestment and sanctions] would stop Scottish prosecutors’ related efforts to criminalise the campaign in support of Palestinian freedom.”
The prosecutor — called the Procurator Fiscal in the Scottish legal system — claimed in open court that the two accused in the Glasgow case were recycling an ancient anti-Semitic “Jewish blood libel” by speaking about Israeli mass murder of Palestinians. The Procurator Fiscal’s office made these claims, said Napier, while the violated people of Gaza “were still looking for ice-cream freezers and vegetable refrigerators in which to store the bodies of children killed by Israel’s military.”
In their testimony last month, Napier and his co-accused Jim Watson both rejected the claims made by prosecution witnesses, a Chief Inspector of police, the manager of the Jericho stall and two local Zionist activists. The prosecution claim was that staff were intimidated by “racist” placards and the shouting of “racist abuse”; this was the description of the SPSC’s criticism of the pro-Israel counter-demonstrators for supporting Israel’s most recent massacre of Palestinians.
The “racist” placard with which the Procurator Fiscal and Zionist witnesses took particular issue was a symbolic but graphic image of blood dripping under the name “Dead Sea cosmetics”. Napier pointed out that at the time of their protest, the UN Secretary-General was describing Israel’s massacre of thousands of Palestinians as a “moral outrage and criminal act” and a “gross violation of humanitarian law.”
“When the Scottish government joined in by denouncing the ‘deep inhumanity’ of the Israeli massacre,” noted Napier, “the Scottish procurators fiscal were working hand in glove with pro-Israel lobby groups to silence voices of Palestine solidarity.”
The SPSC has faced repeated efforts by pro-Israel lobbyists and Scottish prosecutors to criminalise the group’s pro-Palestine activities. The Zionist record to-date is one of almost total failure; legal action has failed to secure any convictions of pro-Palestine activists. “There was, however, a consolation prize [for the Zionists] when we were both found guilty of refusing to leave the shopping centre when asked to do so by the police,” said Napier. “I was also convicted of aggravated trespass for protesting inside the shopping centre. We will be appealing against both convictions so any celebrations by the Zionists will, I suggest, be a bit premature.”
In February last year, two employees of the pro-Israel Community Security Trust made allegations against SPSC members but that was also thrown out by Kilmarnock Sheriff Court when the Sheriff ruled that the crime as alleged had not taken place. “Had we not had the benefit of an Al-Jazeera Arabic language broadcast of the protest where the CST tried to secure an assault conviction there might have been a different outcome,” added Mick Napier.

Hamas accepts Palestinian state with 1967 borders
Khaled Meshaal presents a new document in which Hamas accepts 1967 borders without recognising state of Israel.
With reporting by Ali Younes in Doha
Al Jazeera
02 May 2017
Hamas has presented a new political document that accepts the formation of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders, without recognising the statehood of Israel, and says that the conflict in Palestine is not a religious one.
The positions were made official on Monday in Qatar's capital, Doha, by Khaled Meshaal, the leader-in-exile of the Palestinian group that runs the besieged Gaza Strip.
"We shall not waive an inch of the Palestinian home soil, no matter what the recent pressures are and no matter how long the occupation," Meshaal said as he revealed the document to the public after two years of work.
"Hamas rejects any idea except liberating the home soil entirely and completely, although it does not necessarily mean we recognise the Zionist entity or give up any of our Palestinian rights."
While Hamas' 1988 founding charter called for the takeover of all of mandate Palestine, including present-day Israel, the new document says it will accept the 1967 borders as the basis for a Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as its capital and the return of refugees to their homes.
The 1967 borders refer to those that existed before the war in which Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
But it does not go as far as to fully recognise Israel and says Hamas does not relinquish its goal of "liberating all of Palestine".
"Hamas considers the establishment of a Palestinian state, sovereign and complete, on the basis of the June 4, 1967, with Jerusalem as its capital and the provision for all the refugees to return to their homeland is an agreeable form that has won a consensus among all the movement members," Meshaal said.
The document also falls short of accepting the two-state solution that is assumed to be the end product of the Oslo Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO).
It also clarifies that Hamas' fight is with the "Zionist project", not with the religion of Judaism, making a distinction between those who believe in Judaism and "Zionist Israeli citizens who occupy Palestinian lands".
It also sidesteps language in the group's original charter that affirms its connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, and says that Hamas is a fully independent organisation.
The new Hamas positions were made official on Monday in Qatar's capital, Doha [EPA]
Analysts said the release of the document appears to be an attempt by Hamas to seem more pragmatic and help it to avoid international isolation.
Speaking to Al Jazeera, Mohammad Abu Saada, a professor at Gaza's al-Azhar University, called the new document a bid to "accommodate Egyptian conditions and calm Egyptian fears" regarding Hamas connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, which Egypt has classified as a "terror" group since democratically elected president Mohammad Morsi was ousted in a 2013 military coup.
While in the 1988 charter Hamas affirmed its ties to the Muslim Brotherhood by mentioning it six times, the new document asserted Hamas strict Palestinian credentials as a "liberation movement" that uses Islam as its main ideological component.
"Hamas is trying to walk a fine line between its hardliners and its own moderates," said Abu Saada of al-Azhar University.
"In one way, the moderates can say they accepted a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, but the hardliners can still say they are not recognising Israel."
Azzam Tamimi, author of "Hamas: A History from Within", told Al Jazeera that while Hamas leaders were unlikely to say so, the new document would "practically" replace the group's old charter.
"They would prefer to say that the old charter expressed Hamas in 1988, and that now, Hamas is a different organisation. It has different insight and understanding of the conflict and that today's document is what speaks for Hamas today."
Crippling blockade
Hamas has controlled the Gaza Strip since 2007, after winning elections and forcefully pushing its Fatah rivals out. Since then, Gaza has suffered three major Israeli assaults, whick killed more than 3,500 Palestinians, and a crippling 10-year-long siege.
"The question is whether this change will do anything to try and lift the blockade, or anything to get this struggling economy back on its feet," said Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett, reporting from Gaza City.
Israeli officials rejected the document before it was made official, calling it an attempt by Hamas to trick the world into believing it was becoming a more moderate group.
"Hamas is attempting to fool the world but it will not succeed," said David Keyes, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office.
The document's release comes just days ahead of Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas' visit to Washington on May 3 and as US President Donald Trump's administration prepares a new push to forge peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
Abbas and his Fatah party have long pushed for a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders, and have engaged in talks with Israel on that basis.
But Israel has frequently refused to enter into political talks with Abbas' PA on the grounds that they do not represent all Palestinians.
Mustafa Barghouti, leader of the Palestinian National Initiative, told Al Jazeera that this move by Hamas reflected a level of "political maturity".
"Acceptance of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders ... means accepting a two-state solution. In my opinion this is going to embarrass Israel a lot," said Barghouti.
"We've seen the Israeli reaction, which looks very frightened, first of all from the greater possibility of Palestinian unity, but also ... of peace and the possibility of peace."

Racism-as-Zionism. Don't Call It 'pro-Israel.' Call It What It Is: Disgusting
It's time to stop pretending that racism can ever be good for the Jews.
Bradley Burston
Aug 30, 2016
A pro-Israel demonstration in New York's Times Square. Reuters
No more.
It's time to stop pretending that racism can ever be good for the Jews. Not in practice, and not in propaganda.
It's time to stop fooling ourselves that there's any reasonable benefit for Israel in practicing racism against Palestinians, whether in flagrantly discriminatory policies in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, or in less obvious but still keenly felt official inequality toward Palestinian citizens of Israel.
It's time, as well, to call out "Pro-Israel" voices who "defend" Israel by demonizing and dehumanizing Palestinians as a people, as a society, as a whole and as individuals. It's time we called racism-as-Zionism what it is: Disgusting.
It's time to stand up and answer the know-it-all social media zealots who, from the comfort and insulation of their armchairs in North American suburbs, post incessantly about how all Palestinians — people whom they've never ever met nor spoken with — are fanatic, base, primitive, bloodthirsty Jew-hating animals, for whom Jew-murder is the be-all and end-all of their lives, and — incidentally — are also not a real people, so deserve no rights beyond the right to be expelled.
It's time to ask, if this is what "pro-Israel" means, what does this Israel stand for?
Read this:
"There is irrefutable evidence of the barbaric and genocidal nature of Palestinian society. ‎Indeed, the reality is that, despite maintaining a  'moderate' stance to the outside world, ‎internally the Palestinians and the Islamic State group are birds of a feather — although the Palestinians are ‎probably more corrupt.‎"
The author is Isi Leibler, former leader of the Australian Jewish community and ex-chairman of the governing board of the World Jewish Congress, who moved to Israel in the late 1990s and is now a columnist for Israel Hayom and the Jerusalem Post.
His column, published by both media outlets last week, held out little room for the possibility that Palestinian society is fragmented and diverse, split over a broad range of issues, among them, one state versus two, the role of religion in politics, and the question of an eventual accommodation with Israel.
Two days before the column appeared, a respected poll of Palestinian public opinion showed that 51 percent of Palestinians support a two-state solution.
But for Isi Leibler, the only thing which Palestinians truly support, is slaughtering Jews.
"While Arab hostility to Jews prevailed even during the ‎Mandatory period, it was not comparable to the culture of death and evil that today saturates ‎every aspect of Palestinian life," he writes.
"The Palestinian Authority has become a criminal society and can be compared to prewar ‎Germany when the Nazis transformed their population into genocidal barbarians by depicting ‎Jews as subhuman."
You have to hand it to Isi. A great sense of timing. His statements on Palestinians come just as the school year begins, and students, many for the first time, will be learning about the Israel-Palestine conflict.
According to Leibler, the direction of the debate over Israel is all wrong. In his view, "exposing the barbarity of our neighbors should be made the top priority in our foreign relations efforts, rather than the endless disputes over whether the minuscule 2% of territory comprising settlements (which are not being expanded) is justified."
Let's forget, for the moment, that neither the two percent figure nor the observation regarding non-expansion are, in fact, even remotely representative of the reality of occupation.
The problem is reducing millions of Palestinians, people of all ages and aspirations and backgrounds and temperaments and dreams, to a darkly uniform mass of murderers.
The problem is racism. The problem is using racism against Palestinians as a defense of Israel. Using racism against Palestinians as a substitute for information, for honesty, for any vision at all of a way forward, a way out.
In a reality like ours, a morass of rage, frustration, colossal unfairness and despair, racism has a definite allure. It's the easy way out, the tempting default, the feel-good heat sink.
The problem is, it's wrong. It's disgusting. It appeals to the worst in us, and makes nothing better.
The problem is not Isi Leibler. For every Isi Leibler, there are countless others, much worse, pumping out hatred against Palestinians on social media as if the hatred itself were somehow helpful, useful, as if it somehow made Israel stronger. Some people even hate Palestinians for a living. Some of them are in the Knesset. One of them now has the biggest office in the Defense Ministry.
There is a prime minister who exhorts Israeli Jews to drop everything and run out and vote for him because Arabs in droves are coming over the hill.
A prime minister who exploits a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv in order to accuse Arab Israelis as a whole of disloyalty to the state.
Is this really the best that Israel's got going for it?
Are there no better arguments from the right supporting Israel — and doing everything possible to fend off any eventuality of a Palestinian state alongside it — than branding Palestinians genocidal, barbaric criminals?
When the right uses racism as a public relations tool, all it's really doing is preaching to its choir. But what does that say about the preacher, and what does that say about the choir?
In the end, in marshaling racist arguments in order to "defend" Israel, what they've shown the rest of us, is only this:
Racism is not a defense. Racism is a confession.

Zionism: A Conspiracy Against Jews
by Henry Makow Ph.D
June 27, 2004
In 1935 the steamer "Tel Aviv" made its maiden voyage from Nazi Germany to Haifa with Hebrew letters on its bow and a Nazi flag fluttering from its mast. The Captain of the Zionist-owned ship was a member of the Nazi Party. A passenger described the spectacle as a "metaphysical absurdity."
Actually it made perfect sense.
The ship transported German Jews who had taken advantage of the "Haavara" program, which allowed them to exchange their money for its value in Germany products in Palestine. As a result, the fledgling Jewish colony received about 70,000 highly educated German Jews and 140 million Reichmarks worth of German industrial equipment. This laid the foundation of Israel's infrastructure.
The arrangement also boosted the Nazi economy at a time when Jews worldwide were boycotting German products. (My main source is "The Secret Contacts" by Klaus Polkehn a prominent German journalist. It is included in Olivia O'Grady's The Beasts of the Apocalyse, 2001, 421-447.)
Why retell this story of Zionist-Nazi cooperation now?
Because "Jewish" leaders have been exploiting their "lesser brethren" for a long time, and are doing so today. Ordinary Jews pay the price and this price could rise.
In my opinion, Zionism is a movement to deceive Jews into advancing the objectives of British imperialism. (See, "The Jewish Conspiracy is British Imperialism") Zionists who have built their lives on a false premise naturally will reject this view.
Specifically, Jews helped the British-Jewish elite colonize the oil-rich Middle East under the pretext of Jews needing a national home. Despite the appearance of neutrality, the British (and Americans) financed, trained and equipped the Jews. (John Coleman, Diplomacy by Deception p. 107.)
The "British" are really the London-based international banking cartel associated with names like Rothschild and Rockefeller. It doesn't answer to any government. Its goal is to colonize the world and everyone in it. Jews are a means to this end.
As seen in Iraq, Zionists (a.k.a Neocons) play a major role in the colonization of the Middle East. The important thing to remember is that Israel is the creation of this cartel; both Israel and the US are its tools.
Iraq is only a phase in the emerging New World Order, which represents a continuation of the goals of "British" imperialism. John Kerry would take up in Iraq where George Bush left off. Democracy is a charade.
NAZIS MADE-TO-MEASURE FOR ZIONISM
In 1925, Germany's 500,000 Jews were overwhelmingly indifferent or actively hostile to Zionism. The German Zionist movement had only 9000 members.
The "Central Union of Germans of the Jewish Faith " represented most German Jews and favored active participation in German life. Its main focus was combating anti-Semitism.
Zionists, on the other hand, welcomed the Nazis' anti Semitic policies. Like the Nazis, they believed in race-based national character and destiny. Like the Nazis, they believed Jews had no future in Germany.
The Zionists did not protest Nazi persecution such as the removal of 2000 Jewish scholars and scientists from German universities in 1933. The Nazis rewarded this "restraint" by allowing the Zionists to go about their work unhindered. All other Jewish and anti fascist organizations were disbanded and their leaders imprisoned.
The Nazis required all Jews to join the Zionist-led "Reich Union" whose goal was emigration. Jews were to be converted to Zionism at any cost. The Zionists were able to publish books and newspapers critical of the Nazis so long as the audience was restricted to Jews.
The cooperation extended to political and economic spheres. Adolph Eichmann set up agricultural training camps in Austria to prepare young Jews for Kibbutz life. He visited Palestine and conferred with Zionist leaders who confessed their true expansionist goals. There was even talk of a strategic alliance between Nazi Germany and Jewish Palestine. His report is in Himmler's Archives.
[For more on Zionist-Nazi cooperation, see online Lenni Brenner "Zionism in the Age of Dictators" Also, Lenni Brenner, 51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration With the Nazis (2002)]
The cooperation may have extended to the Jewish Holocaust and explain why most Jews passively accepted their fate. In his book, "The Holocaust Victims Accuse" Rabbi Moshe Shonfeld claims that Zionist- led Jewish Councils ("Judenrats") collaborated with the Nazis and deceived non Zionist Jews. See my "Zionism: Compulsory Suicide for Jews."
Europe's non-Zionist Jews were worth more dead than alive to Zionists and their financial sponsors. The Holocaust provided a political and moral rationale for the establishment of the Jewish state.
WHO WAS HITLER?
In 1919, Hitler was an Intelligence Officer with the German Army assigned to spy on the tiny German Labor Party. He became its leader. Max Warburg, brother of Paul Warburg, founder of the US Federal Reserve, was the chief of German Intelligence. Both were executives of the I.G. Farben conglomerate. There is no record of when Hitler stopped working for these Illuminati figures. (See also Be Afraid: The New World Order's Fascist Pedigree )
Hitler was sponsored by the banker oligarchy, and may have been their pawn.
Certainly the Nazis received millions of dollars from New York and London. See "Hitler Didn't Want World War."
Ernst ("Putzi") Hanfstaengl was close to both the bankers and Hitler and funneled money to the Nazis during their formative years. See also Antony Sutton "Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler" Chapter Eight
But when Hitler began to print his own money, he may have alienated these sponsors. See "Rothschild Conducts Red Symphony"
The bottom line is that both Nazism and Zionism were sponsored by the same banking cartel and had complementary goals. The rise of anti Semitism in Europe served to create the State of Israel, which President Assad of Syria described as a "dagger in the heart of the Arab nations."
Think about it. Hitler could have just confiscated all the Jewish wealth. Instead he used the "Haavara Program" to help establish the State of Israel. According to Polkehn, Hitler personally guaranteed this program in the face of opposition. It lasted until the beginning of the war.
This cartel, which controls the world today, has no compunction about using Jews (or anyone) as a means to an end.
THE BANKSTER AGENDA
All money is created in the form of debt to the privately owned banking cartel.
Imagine if you could create money out of thin air. Imagine you have the credit cards of all the nations in your pocket.
Your first impulse is to lend money to your nominees so they can buy most of the world's real wealth for you.
Your second impulse is to establish a totalitarian system ("world government" "globalization") to prevent any nation from challenging this system or defaulting on their "debt" to you.
To make nations accept "world government," you need to weaken them by having them fight among themselves, run up huge debts for armaments (which you will sell them), kill off the cream of their manhood, and become demoralized and decadent.
You accomplish this through your ownership of politicians and the press and your control of MI-6, CIA, Mossad who carry out terror and assassinations for you. This is the real history of the last 300 years.
"World government" is really about using debt to enslave us; it is an international loan collection agency. Naturally they shroud this with talk about tolerance, human rights, fighting poverty and preventing war.
A quote from a 1924 edition of the American Banker's Association Digest sums up what is currently happening. Keep this in mind when you vote.
"When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. "
Now consider the words of an Illuminati defector, Svali.
"The conflict in the Middle East is only to the advantage of the Illuminists. They HATE Israel, and hope one day to see it destroyed, and are biding their time. One of the olive branches offered by the UN when it takes over is that they will prevent war in the Middle East, and this will be greeted with joy by many.
At the same time, the Illuminati covertly supply guns and funds to BOTH sides to keep the conflict fuelled. They are very duplicitous people...These people love the game of chess, and see warfare between nations as creating an order out of chaos."
In a personal email, she added:
"I have always wondered this, though, why some of the highest ranking financial families in the group (Baron Rothschild of France is one of the 13 European lords, or "kings" that run the group in Europe, and sits on the World Council) are Jewish, yet the group espouses hatred of their own race."
CONCLUSION
Ben Hecht said that reading the daily news to understand current events is like telling the time by looking at the second hand. You have to look at the decade and century hands to see what is really going on in the world.
The Rothschild-Rockefeller banking cartel is behind most political (and cultural) trends and its goal is to destroy the nation state, true democracy, religion, culture, marriage and family, in order to degrade humanity to animal status in advance of totalitarianism.
In the "war on terror," they have created a bogeyman to establish a system of repression to be used when they call in their "loans."
I was once a Zionist who believed Jews needed a homeland because of anti Semitism. I realize now that, like most of history, this view was mostly contrived. Anti Semitism is caused because many Jews serve (consciously or unconsciously) the bankers' harmful agenda. Zionism, Communism and Feminism are a few examples.
Most Jews are now totally identified with Israel, which is a tool of the Rothschilds' demented megalomania. If past is preface, this cannot end well for Jews or anyone.

Donald Trump Calls Justin Trudeau “Canada’s Worst President Yet”
By the Burrard Street Journal
Tuesday, May 9, 2017
THE President of the United States, has openly questioned the credentials of Justin Trudeau, labeling the Canadian head of state “an embarrassment” and a “terrible president”.
In a no-holds barred interview with a Canadian magazine to be published next month, Donald Trump claims that despite being only in the job for less than 2 years, Trudeau is “easily Canada’s worst president yet.”
“Honestly I think he’s done a terrible job so far,” President Trump observed when questioned about Trudeau, and later tweeted: “He should be ashamed to call himself the President of Canada.”
Trump even warned Canadians that the Liberal leader’s continued “regressive” leadership could result in a change in job title for future Canadian leaders.
“Well as I’m sure you know, I’ve followed Canadian politics closely all my life,” Trump maintained. “And I think he’s done such damage to the Canadian presidency that they should rename it to like, prime minister or something more Canadian-sounding, like emir or emperor.”
Trump openly questioned Trudeau’s immigration policy, calling him the “founder of Canadian ISIS”, but cited the 44-year-old’s “terrible record” with women’s rights, as the main reason for his loss of faith in the Liberal Party leader.
“What kind of feminist punches a broad, huh?” Trump said. “He viciously assaulted a young woman, who is very lucky to be alive, but the left wing media says nothing? Can you imagine what they’ll say when I elbow Elizabeth Warren in the jugs? Hypocrites.
The “self made” billionaire called on Trudeau to take “inspiration” from Trump’s own status as the poster-child for modern day male feminists. “Do you know how many strippers I have personally put through education at Trump University? Of course not,” he said, shaking his head. “All of those chicks are walking around now with doctorates! Fucking DOCTORATES! You literally can’t put a price on an education like that.”

Justin Trudeau following his dad's bad fiscal planning
By Lorrie Goldstein, Toronto Sun
Posted: Tuesday, February 07, 2017
Call it like father, like son.
A new study by the Fraser Institute suggests Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is taking the nation’s finances down the same black hole of never-ending deficits and debt that his late father did when he was prime minister in the 1970s and early 1980s.
“Because the federal government seems to be on the road to revisiting the damaging fiscal policies of the 1970s,” Lakehead University economics Professor Livio Di Matteo warns in, A Federal Fiscal History: Canada, 1867 to 2017, “Canadians should question whether we’re embarking on another transitional period ... that, like Lester Pearson’s and Pierre Trudeau’s time in office, will lead to years of deficits and ultimately another debt crisis.”
Di Matteo says that aside from global wars and economic downturns, “the only other time the federal government kicked off a deficit spending spree and expanded the size and role of the federal government, was in the mid-1960s and 1970s under (Liberal prime ministers) Lester Pearson and then Pierre Trudeau.”
That is, Di Matteo warns, until the election of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government in 2015.
He notes that Pierre Trudeau never once delivered a balanced budget during his 14 years as prime minister from 1969 to 1984 (interrupted only briefly by the nine-month Joe Clark Progressive Conservative government of 1979 to 1980), leaving behind a massive, for the time, $37.2 billion annual deficit in his final year in office.
Under Pierre Trudeau, Di Matteo says, government program spending skyrocketed from $12.9 billion to $84.3 billion, the net federal debt ballooned from $19.3 billion to $212.6 billion and the debt-to-GDP ratio, a key indicator of overall economic health, soared from 23% to 42.2%.
Di Matteo warns that given Justin Trudeau’s financial track record so far, he appears to be following in his father’s footsteps.
During the 2015 federal election, Trudeau promised Canadians that in order to fulfill his election promises, his government would record projected deficits of $9.9 billion in 2016-17, $9.5 billion in 2017-18, $5.7 billion in 2018-2019, and a surplus of $1 billion in 2019-2020.
He also promised that by 2019-2020, the Liberals would reduce the debt-to-GDP ratio from 30% to 27%.
But following the election, when the Liberals presented their first budget in March, 2016, Trudeau almost tripled his projected 2016-17 deficit to $29.4 billion, followed by $29 billion in 2017-18, $22.8 billion in 2018-19, $17.7 billion in 2019-20 and $14.3 billion in 2020-21.
Since then, the Trudeau Liberals have added $31.7 billion to their projected deficits and abandoned their election promises to eliminate the deficit by 2019 and to reduce the debt-to-GDP ratio to 27% by that year.
Indeed, Di Matteo notes, under Trudeau’s current fiscal plan, program spending is projected to hit $291.4 billion this year, a $40 billion increase from 2014, while the net debt of $727.5 billion this year will increase to $759.5 billion in 2017-18.

Canadians Didn't Sign Up For Trudeau's Scandals And Bad Policies
Luke Rebello

It has been more than a year since Canadians voted in a federal election to grant Justin Trudeau a majority government, after one of the longest federal election cycles in modern Canadian history.
Trudeau's overwhelming support came from a message that revolved around "change." His campaign made a plethora of campaign promises, offering a fresh face, new ideas and the promise of transparency for the Liberal platform.
Trudeau's actions in government have not lived up to expectations, and Canadians are taking notice. A recent poll has shown the Liberal government's approval rating dropping a staggering nine points to 42 per cent, from a November poll which had Liberal support at 51 per cent.
Trudeau, once elected, released a document titled 
Open and Accountable Government, which detailed the ways in which the Liberal government would operate and maintain transparency. Trudeau is quoted in a news release as saying "We will uphold the highest standards of integrity and impartiality both in our public and private affairs."
Trudeau disregards his promises on ethics and transparency
Justin Trudeau and the Liberal party have been under scrutiny regarding their multiple "cash-for-access" fundraisers. Cash for access can be described as providing money directly to a foundation or individual for meetings with high-ranking government officials, which could lead to a number of conflicts of interest.
The Liberals held a $1,500 cash-for-access fundraiser at a wealthy Chinese-Canadian business executive's mansion in May. In attendance was Chinese businessman Zhang Bin, who along with a partner 
donated $1 million to the Trudeau foundation and the University of Montreal Faculty of Law not long after the event. Bin is an adviser to the Chinese government and a state network which promotes Chinese interests around the world.
At this high-profile event were a number of Chinese billionaires, including insurance tycoon Shenglin Xian, who founded Wealth One Bank of Canada. This fundraiser had been at an opportune moment, as Xian had been waiting for approval from federal bank regulators for his Schedule 1 bank to start operations in Canada.
Since Schedule 1 banks are domestic, they may receive deposits within Canada. As of July, the Liberal government has approved this bank, which opened branches in multiple cities across Canada.

Such cash-for-access events go against the ethical guidelines and standards of conduct outlined by Trudeau when elected. A section of Trudeau's guidelines states that  "There should be no preferential access to government, or appearance of preferential access, accorded to individuals or organizations because they have made financial contributions to politicians and political parties."
The Liberals voted down a motion from the Conservatives, supported by the NDP, to transfer the Liberals ethics rules on lobbying and fundraising to the ethics commissioner Mary Dawson. The intent of this motion was to prevent potential conflicts of interest in government and stop cash-for-access events in Canadian politics while upholding Trudeau's own promise for a transparency in government.
This scandal has shown a complete disregard for Canadian campaign finance laws, while the wealthy and lobbyists continue to erode democracy.
Broken promises will impact the economy
The Canadian economy has seen sluggish growth since the election, which has not been helped by terrible fiscal policy by the Liberal government. Trudeau had promised, once elected, to run consecutive deficits for three years. This campaign promise explicitly stated that these "small" yearly deficits would not exceed $10 billion a year.

The Liberals' plan to run yearly deficits was made in tandem with an election promise to balance the budget by 2019-2020. The Liberals first tabled budget deficit is estimated to accumulate to a staggering $30 billion, a significant increase for the Canadian economy, especially with the loonie struggling and low oil prices.
How can such a fiscally irresponsible government grow the Canadian economy at such levels to meet these targets? They cannot, with recent budget forecasts for 2019 predicting an $18-billion deficit, and a $14-billion deficit in 2020.
Trudeau also promised middle-class tax cuts to be paid for by tax hikes for higher incomes. Such tax changes were promised to be revenue neutral, meaning they would not cost the Canadian public additional tax dollars.
Bill Morneau and the Liberal government again showed their inability to keep their word, as it is now being reported that these tax changes are actually going to leave the government short $1.2 billion.
The current lack of budget control and accountability will leave Canadians with an unmanageable level of debt. With large deficits being predicted past the next election -- and growth not likely to reach the Liberal government's predictions -- it is likely such short-sighted policies will lead to either large tax increases or large government cuts in the near future.
In 1972, when Pierre Trudeau started running similar deficits without proper consideration for their long-term effects, it took a quarter century to get out of deficit spending through the largest downsizing in Canadian history under the Chretien and Martin Liberal governments.
The Conservatives warned that the Liberals' deficit spending would turn into massive and permanent debt.
The chief economist at Scotiabank, Jean-Francois Perrault, has been quoted as saying the Liberals have been far too overconfident in their projections of how their budget will impact growth.
What is even more alarming is how Canada will compete with its neighbours and draw investment with the election of Donald Trump south of the border. Trump has pledged to remove regulation in most sectors in the U.S. economy -- how can Canada compete when the Liberal government is not allowing Canada to be competitive with policies like an increased carbon tax? Such a carbon tax will "shift emissions and jobs to the U.S., helping neither our economy nor the environment."
Additional broken campaign promises
Trudeau and the Liberals constantly made campaign promises on electoral reform, assuring Canadians that the 2015 election would be the last under the ineffective first past the post system. The All Party Committee on Electoral Reform submitted their report suggesting the vast majority of Canadians and experts supported a proportional representation system. Yet the Liberal government has insisted on backing away from initial promises for reform in the press and interviews.
The Liberal party has a history of fiscal irresponsibility and running large deficits, but this Liberal government has started a trend of breaking major campaign promises. As the polls suggest in the first year under a Trudeau Liberal majority, scandals and irresponsible policy decisions are not what the Canadian people signed up for.
