  • Chancellor wants to make it easier to impose fines and jail terms on tax avoiders exploiting offshore havens

George Osborne is planning to make it easier to impose jail terms or heavy fines on British residents using offshore tax havens to cheat the exchequer out of billions in revenue.

The chancellor, who is in Washington at the International Monetary Fund's spring meeting, has drafted a criminal offence of failing to declare offshore income as he steps up a long-running campaign to crack down on tax dodging.

At present, HMRC has to prove a British resident has deliberately sent funds abroad to dodge tax. The need to prove intent has undermined several prosecutions and allowed those under investigation to escape with only light fines, Treasury officials said.

HMRC estimates £5bn a year is lost to the exchequer from tax evasion by wealthy individuals, out of a £35bn overall loss to evasion and non-payment.

"It is totally unacceptable for people not to pay tax that is due in the UK," Osborne said between meetings at the IMF spring conference. "The vast majority of wealthy people pay their taxes and their share of tax income has been going up. HMRC believes it has been difficult getting the outright tax evader."

The UK government is working with 50 other countries in a pilot project to share information about potential tax avoiders. The project is co-ordinated by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, which has laid out rules for information sharing between governments on potential tax dodgers.

UN to send 10,000 troops into troubled Central African Republic

The blood spilling in Africa continues as it has for a long time. Stop the Arms supply, try killing with Pop Guns then.

STOP THE ARMS TRADE!




  • Clashes in the Central African Republic have left thousands dead and hundreds of thousands displaced.

The 15-member United Nations (UN) Security Council has unanimously approved the creation of a peacekeeping force in the Central African Republic to try to end violence between Christians and Muslims from spiralling into genocide.

The UN force, Minusca, will see the deployment, of up to 10,000 troops, 1,800 police and 20 corrections officers.

It has also permitted French troops in the landlocked former colony to support UN peacekeepers.

The operation will assume authority on 15 September from the African Union's 5,600-strong Misca force, which was deployed in December. The council wants the UN force to include "as many Misca military and police personnel as possible".

An 800-strong European Union force is also due to start deploying in the first week of May.

Syrian Rebels Appear to Have a New Type of U.S.-made Anti-Tank Weapon

More new anti-tank weapons, American supplied, all American funded to destabilize and kill in yet another country. More Wars, all Cabal whores.

The recent appearance of an American anti-tank missile on the social media of a Syrian rebel group fighting the government of President Bashar Assad raises questions about U.S. assistance in the war, and its effectiveness

For all the weapons currently in use in the Syrian war, few are American made. It’s emblematic of strict U.S. control over the manufacture and distribution of weapons of war. But the recent appearance on YouTube of a uniquely American anti-tank missile being launched by a moderate rebel group fighting the government of President Bashar Assad in Syria has fostered speculation that the U.S. or its allies may have finally started arming the rebels. For months, U.S. security officials have leaked information to journalists about the supply of light arms to moderate rebels in Syria’s southern areas, and congressional approval for further deliveries through September. This is possibly the first evidence of the American armaments in use in Syria, though their appearance in the northern province of Idlib, far from the U.S. approved rebel group’s area of operations is a disconcerting development. So far only three instances of the BGM-71 TOW anti-tank guided missile in rebel use have appeared on social media sites coming out of Syria, so it’s impossible to know how widespread the weapon’s distribution is, or if its just a one-off. Still, it raises questions about whether or not such weapons would even make a difference in a war that is nearing unshakable stalemate.

U.S. Claims Country Building Its Own Network to Protect Against NSA Spying Violates Trade Laws

At a time when business so, so much needs a break, the actions and miscalculations on blowback from snooping will affect American high tech companies for some time, reallocating billions in spending.


Washington's Blog

NSA spying is costing the U.S. tech industry tens of billions of dollars, and people around the world are trying to find non-U.S. companies to provide internet, cloud and computer products and services. And see this and this.

Numerous countries are trying to thwart NSA spying.

Many countries are planning to create their own communications infrastructures to bypass the U.S. altogether. For example, economic powerhouse Germany is rolling out a system that would keep all data within Germany’s national borders.

The U.S. is trying to not only protect U.S. businesses, but also keep the NSA’s hand in the cookie jar by arguing (wait for it…) that closing borders to the NSA would violate trade law.

The Window to Resist Tyranny is Closing Due to the New Super Weapons

When a country can fund Trillions in war, but nothing for its own people, ask why?

You have to wonder why the need for such weapons and as it is clear why there is no money for feeding, educating or housing the people. As people become aware the blowback of miscalculation comes out. Countries will band together to resist as will people. The everyday person just wants to get on with life. Even friends will wonder about the consciousness of a country inhabited by lackluster leadership and question intentions, just like what is now happening over snooping. Isolation of America will readily find favor as people say No, and the economy will suffer.

Many talk about the fact that Americans have an estimated 300 million privately owned hand guns as the reason why no foreign power, or even our government, can subjugate the people. I am compelled to disagree. If our government ever became abusive enough that the people felt the need to rebel, there is a new generation of super weapons being developed which would doom any rebellion.

Although Yamamoto once refused to invade the United States following his attack upon Pearl Harbor because there would be “an American with a gun behind every blade of grass”, these super weapons would have changed his mind, thus, making America vulnerable to tyrants and foreign invaders. As a result, the window to resist martial law occupation and even an invasion is quickly closing.

Who will ever forget the well-publicized DHS paper targets, depicting the following targets, as a reminder as to who DHS feels is the real enemy.

Whole Eastern World Rebelling Against the Dollar

One of Jim's latest missiles that is worth reading.


  • Jim Willie is one of the most original thinkers in our industry. His newsletters are long and not for the average casual reader, but here are some of his most recent thoughts via an interview with Greg Hunter at USAWatchdog.

Financial newsletter writer Dr. Jim Willie thinks 2014 will be a pivotal year for the U.S. Dr. Willie says, “We’re going to end this year with no resemblance to the beginning. We spent a lot of years trying to hold this thing together. The whole system broke in 2007 and 2008 with the subprime mortgages. I was saying before that we’ve got the entire U.S. economy depending on the housing bubble and the mortgage finance bubble, and when that breaks, the system is going to break. In the following couple of years, it continued to break. What did we do? We went to zero percent interest rates and made it pretty clear it’s forever. What else did we do? We did bond monetization, QE. I love QE, it makes it sound like CPR. It’s death. It’s hyper-monetary inflation. It’s what Nazi Germany did . . . it wrecked everything. These are desperation measures to hold it together because the system is broken.” Dr. Willie, who holds a PhD in statistics, contends, “Now all the QE and bond purchases are causing some major problems, breaking major economic structures. . . It’s all breaking, it’s all breaking, and they are having a tremendous problem holding it together. Now, the whole Eastern World is rebelling against the dollar.”

On U.S. sanctions on Russia over the Ukraine crisis, Dr. Willie says, “This is stage two on the sanctions backfire. The first one was the 2012 Iran sanctions. What did that accomplish? They worked with India and Turkey to create the workaround, which is what I call the prototype for gold trade settlement. . . . This is so basic.” The second “backfire” is the recent Russia/Iran deal that trades Iranian oil for Russian goods. Dr. Willie declares, “We would have never gotten the Russian deal with Iran . . . to flood the world with oil that is not paid for in dollars. Also, to establish a pattern so that other countries can see you can go ahead and make deals to buy oil and don’t use the dollar. This is a boycott, and it’s a defiant step that is like saying follow our lead. It’s a model being created. Can you imagine Saudi Arabia importing oil? That’s like New York City importing arrogance. . . . This is a backfire against the Russian sanctions.” Dr. Willie goes on to say, “What we got is a Eurasian axis that is starting to form. It’s going to be Russia, China, India, and later, I think Germany is going to play a key role. Saudi Arabia and Iran are going to play a very strange role. They are going to end their conflict.”

Happy New Year America

Still think Obama, the Kenyan Illegal Con Man Closet Gay, is good for America?



Here is what happened on January 1st 2014:

  • Top Income Tax bracket went from 35% to 39.6%

  • Top Income Payroll Tax went from 37.4% to 52.2%

  • Capital Gains Tax went from 15% to 28%

  • Dividend Tax went from 15% to 39.6%

  • Estate Tax went from 0% to 55%

Remember this 'fact;' if you have any money, the Democrats want it! All these taxes were passed with only Democrat votes. Not one Republican voted to do these taxes. Remember this come election time. And make sure your friends and neighbors know this info too! Maybe we can get enough involved to get this country back next election cycle!!!

These taxes were all passed under the affordable care act, otherwise known as Obama care.

Obama administration wins Jefferson Muzzle award for restricting free press

Great legacy. A lying, criminally funded, Cabal backed Illegal has stifled all hope of truth in America.

The United States Department of Justice and the White House Press Office are this year’s top winners of a dubious award extended to those considered to be “responsible for some of the more egregious or ridiculous affronts to First Amendment principles.”

On Wednesday this week, the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression announced that the US Justice Dept. had topped this year’s list of “Jefferson Muzzle” recipients, an award handed out every April since 1992 “as a means to draw national attention to abridgments of free speech and press and, at the same time, foster an appreciation for those tenets of the First Amendment.”

The White House Press Office was listed in the second slot among this year’s “winners,” trailed immediately by a third-place tie between the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.

It isn’t unusual for the free-speech loving organization named in honor of the third president of the US to condemn federal agencies for infringing on the constitutional rights of American citizens, but the Obama administration swept this year’s honors, undoubtedly lending further credence to allegations that the White House has ravaged First Amendment-protected freedoms by interfering and attempting to influence even the most venerable mainstream press outlets in the country.

Why I Do Not Like The Obamas

This is posted here because IT MATTERS!

Best summation of Barack and Michelle Obama EVER!




The Daily Rant
By Mychal Massie
5 January 2013

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obamas? Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obamas. It seems personal not policy related. You even dissed their Christmas family pic.” The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation.

I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.

I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no, I demand respect for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagans made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
