China to allow yuan trade settlement nationwide and direct foreign investment in the yuan

Source: NHK World
Date: Wednesday, August 24, 2011 11:10 +0900 (JST)

[Editor's Note: Of particular interest in the following video is that China will start allowing direct outside investment in its yuan currency in addition to facilitating international trade in the yuan. This development is part of a trend in which countries have shown a preference for transacting in their own currencies rather than the U.S. dollar, which is still the world's reserve currency (although perhaps for not much longer).]

China is expanding the use of its currency in settling cross-border trade. It will now allow businesses nationwide to settle exports and imports with the yuan.

On Tuesday, the People's Bank of China, the country's central bank, said permission for yuan-based trade settlement will now be given to all parts of the country.

This means Chinese companies, as well as trading firms overseas, can use the yuan for cross-border settlement to rein in currency risks.

Originally, in 2009, China permitted companies in just 5 cities, including Shanghai, to use the yuan for trade with Southeast Asian nations.

The government later expanded the use of its national currency for trade to 20 provincial regions and all international transactions.

China's Commerce Ministry said it will also start allowing foreign direct investment in yuan.

China is aiming to boost the status of the yuan as an international currency, amid weakening trust in the US dollar.

Moody's downgrades Japan's debt rating to Aa3 from Aa2

Source: NHK World
Date: 8/23/2011 (Wednesday, August 24, 2011 10:22 +0900 (JST))

US credit agency Moody's Investors Service has downgraded Japan's debt by one notch, on concerns over the country's worsening fiscal situation.

Moody's cut Japan's government bond rating on Wednesday to "Double A 3" from "Double A 2".
The new rating ranks Japanese debt at the same level as that of countries like China and Chile.

The agency says it made the downgrade because the effects of the March disaster and resulting power shortages are slowing Japan's economic growth.

It added that the country has failed to hammer out viable plans for reforming its social security and tax system.

Without a clear direction, Moody's says, Japan's economy will deteriorate further.

But the agency notes that Japan has the largest external assets among advanced economies. It says the country will continue to win the trust of the market as long as it manages to improve its fiscal condition.

On the downgrade, Japan's Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda said he will not comment on a private-sector agency's assessment. But he said that going by recent bond auctions, the market's trust in Japanese government bonds remains firm.

M5.9 earthquake causes North Anna Nuclear Generating Station shutdown

CNBC (host Bill Griffith) reports that the North Anna Nuclear Generating Station has shutdown automatically due to the magnitude 5.9 earthquake with its epicenter at Mineral, Virginia. The nuclear power plant is located about 10 miles Northeast of the epicenter of the quake and is running on backup diesel generators (presumably after losing external power!) per CNBC host Mandy Drury. Dominion Resources stock took a hit after the quake, which CNBC host Brian Sullivan mulls over. Was it a pre-packaged black box algorithm? I have parsed together some video clips of the CNBC coverage with the relevant sound bytes related to the nuclear plant.

For addition general earthquake footage:

Street Signs CNBC covers the M5.9 earthquake with its epicenter at Mineral, Virginia. The quake was first reported as a 5.8, revised to 6.0 and back down to 5.9 by the USGS. According to CNBC, the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. was evacuated as well as the Pentagon. The NYSE was NOT evacuated. Although they report the Nymex was evacuated, actually they revised the report to indicate the Nymex was not an official evacuation rather just suggested. Annecdotal reports indicate the quake was felt as far North as Toronto and even felt in Illinois. Here where I live (a Chicago suburb) we did not feel anything. Probably the most important information to be garnered is that the earthquake caused the North Anna Nuclear Generating Station 10 miles away from the epicenter of the quake to be shut down automatically. The latest report is that the nuke plant is running on backup diesel generators, having lost external power.

Matt Taibbi: "Is the SEC Covering Up Wall Street Crimes?"

Source: Democracy Now!
Date: 8/23/2011 upload date

Here is a recent Democracy Now! interview with Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone Magazine, who coined the term "vampire squid" in reference to the now infamous investment bank Goldman Sachs, regarding his article "Is the SEC Covering Up Wall Street Crimes?".

Editor's Note: The shredding going on at the SEC reminds me of WTC 7 (World Trade Center 7) which collapsed in on its own footprint at free-fall speed despite not having suffered a direct hit by any airplanes on 9/11/2001. According to the article "Document Chaos Isn't Sorted Out" from The Street:
Maybe no financial institution lost more critical documents than the Securities and Exchange Commission, which had its New York regional office at 7 World Trade Center. While the regulatory agency was fortunate in that it lost no employees in the terror attacks, it suffered setbacks in a number of long-running securities investigations.

In August, defense lawyers for several former executives of Rite Aid(RAD_), who've been charged by the SEC with fraud and obstruction of justice, filed a motion seeking a delay in the trial, claiming some of the documents gathered by the SEC had been lost in the attack. SEC attorneys contend many of the original copies of those documents still exist at other locations but acknowledge it will take time to reconstruct all the evidence in the case.

The SEC says the main problem it encountered was that an index for the documents in the Rite Aid case was destroyed in the attack -- not necessarily the documents themselves.

A similar reconstruction of evidence had to take place in a decade-old insider trading case against several former executives of Motel 6, a chain of low-cost motels. The SEC settled the case against the remaining defendants in June. But before that could occur, it had to obtain a court order directing the lawyers for some of the defendants to assist the SEC in reconstructing files "that were destroyed due to the events of Sept. 11, 2001."

In the Motel 6 case, the four remaining defendants, without admitting or denying the insider-trading charges, entered into a settlement with the SEC in which they agreed to pay fines and penalties totaling $798,000. In all, the 10-year case netted $6.36 million in fines, penalties and disgorged profits for the SEC.

SEC officials won't discuss how many cases may have been impacted by the terror attacks, but they claim the lost information was limited to two weeks' worth of data stored on the agency's computers that hadn't yet been backed up.

But it's clear from talking to securities lawyers who practice before the SEC that things haven't gone as smoothly as the agency would like the public to believe.

"Regardless of what the regulators say, they lost a ton of files," says Bill Singer, a New York securities lawyer, who says one case he had pending before the SEC quickly settled because so many of the original documents were destroyed. "In my opinion it was a wholesale loss of documents."

Jim Cramer makes shocking statement about Illuminati and Trilateral Commission

Near the end of the following video clip, Cramer says, "The Bavarian Illuminati, Trilateral Commission, Goldman Sachs and the Queen of England are not all bad."

I was stunned, and what Cramer said back then in 2010 has haunted me to this day so I finally decided to make a permanent archive of the amazing statement.

In the full CNBC video segment which was uploaded 1/27/2010, Cramer has high praise for Ben Bernanke, Hank Paulson and Timothy Geithner: heroes to few villains to many.

Titanic Battle or Insider Trading? The S&P Downgrade and the Bilderbergers: All Part of the Plan?

What just happened in the stock market?

Last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose or fell by at least 400 points for four straight days, a stock market first.

The worst drop was on Monday, 8-8-11, when the Dow plunged 624 points. Monday was the first day of trading after US Treasury bonds were downgraded from AAA to AA+ by Standard and Poor’s.

But the roller coaster actually began on Tuesday, 8-2-11, the day after the last-minute deal to raise the U.S. debt ceiling -- a deal that was supposed to avoid the downgrade that happened anyway five days later. The Dow changed directions for eight consecutive trading sessions after that, another first.

The volatility was unprecedented, leaving analysts at a loss to explain it. High frequency program trading no doubt added to the wild swings, but why the daily reversals? Why didn’t the market head down and just keep going, as it did in September 2008?

The plunge on 8-8-11 was the worst since 2008 and the sixth largest stock market crash ever. According to Der Spiegel, one of the most widely read periodicals in Europe:

Many economists have been pointing out that last week's panic resembled the fear that swept financial markets after the collapse of US investment bank Lehman Brothers in September 2008.

Then as now, banks stopped lending each other money. Then as now, banks' cash deposits at the central bank doubled within days.

But on Tuesday, August 9, the market gained more points from its low than it lost on Monday. Why? A tug of war seemed to be going on between two titanic forces, one bent on crashing the market, the other on propping it up.

Market in Death Cross Mode: Stay on the Sidelines Says Louise Yamada

Date: 8/16/2011

Fast markets are emotional markets. In case you had any doubt on that, I would refer you to the comment section of Breakout stories from last Wednesday when bears ruled the roost, and the comments from yesterday when the dominant theme was the impossibility of "timing the market" (by, say, opining that stocks had hit a near-term bottom at 1,100).
As one who seeks to learn about all investing strategies, even the weird ones, I suggest a truce so that we may take a deep breath and take a fresh look at the market's fundamental and technical field position. The fundies are atypically rather easy: Corporate earnings are quite strong and the macro data is dropping off a cliff.
Now for the technicals.
To help us on the chart-front, Breakout called in Louise Yamada, Director of Louise Yamada Technical Research Advisers. I make no bones about my respect and admiration for Louise. I've followed her work for years and she's made me money. Is she always right? Of course not, nobody is. But she's far better than most and errs on the side of preserving capital rather than trading on hope. Good technicians aren't about catching tops or bottoms, they're about catching the "meat" of a move.
All that said, let's get her opinions:

INFOWARS SPECIAL REPORT: Globalists’ Extermination List Exposed

Date: August 12, 2011
by: Aaron Dykes

In a Special Infowars Report, researcher Aaron Dykes exposes the global population database apparatus used by eugenicists to target populations for reduced births, soft kill and extermination. From the IBM-developed Hollerith punchcards used in the 1890 U.S. census, to race-mixing studies for Cold Springs Harbor and concentration camps in Rockefeller-funded Nazi Germany, eugenicists have long tabulated vital statistics in order to attack subtly and with precision.

Now they are targeting our food supplies, water, air and environment in attempt to shut off our future. How will elites utilize the human genome code, blood samples and DNA they’ve spent decades compiling? Why do foundations of the rich spend so much on the 3rd World population reduction? Aaron Dykes reports on the New World Order’s obsession with eugenics and population control.

Editor's Note: Below is a screen grab from the above special report of the tax exempt foundations who have given substantial sums of money for population control.
Open Society Institute is George Soros' foundation.  Let's not forget to include Neo-Malthusian Warren Buffet in the billionaire eugenics club either. The Buffet Foundation is not shown in the screen grab, so I thought I should make a special footnote. According to the Population Research Institute:
Web sites and magazines devoted to money matters idolize Warren Buffet as a financial and investment genius. The “Buffet Way” of investment is emulated the world over.

Despite his wealth, however, Buffet is something of a miser. Unlike Gates, who has put billions of dollars into his foundation, Buffet’s foundation is a repository of a meager $22 million. Where Buffet eclipses Gates is in his fanatical commitment to population control.

Indeed, Buffet’s foundation is known for funding projects that other foundations, even those similarly inclined to limit human numbers, will not touch. The controversial abortion drug, RU-486, was in part funded by Buffet, who provided $2 million to the Population Council, the chief U.S. promoter of the deadly drug’s legalization.

Another $2 million went to Family Health International for the development of quinacrine hydrochloride pills, which once inserted into a woman’s uterus causes a severe chemical burn that scars shut her fallopian tubes, thus rendering her sterile. Quinacrine sterilization has become a favored method of sterilizing minorities by the Vietnamese government, not known for its strict observance of human rights.

Amazon Founder invests in Canadian Fusion Venture

American billionaire, Jeff Bezos, the man behind has reportedly invested in a Canadian company that is trying to develop a cold fusion process that uses hydrogen and seawater. General Fusion based in Vancouver, British Columbia, reportedly raised $19.5 million in venture capital for the development of a cold fusion or Low Energy Nuclear Reaction process in May. Part of this money apparently came from Bezos’ company Bezos Expeditions.

All is Not Well in Cold Fusion Land

Andrea Rossi, inventor of the E-CAT (energy catalyzer) technology that enables Ni-H (Nickel-Hydrogen) cold fusion, has split with Defkalion Green Technologies. Defkalion Green Technologies is a Greek company that has claimed it has working devices based on Rossi's E-CAT power source tested by both themselves and the Greek government.

Essentially what has happened within the past several days is that Andrea Rossi has accused Defkalion, a licensee of his E-CAT technology, of failing to meet their financial contractual obligations to him and has terminated his partnership with them. More disturbing is that Rossi has stated publicly that he has never disclosed the secret of his E-CAT device to Defkalion.  If Rossi is telling the truth, this suggests that claims Defkalion has created working devices based on the E-CAT which have already been tested by the Greek government are false.

What we do know for sure is that someone is lying, either Andrea Rossi or Defkalion Green Technologies representatives.

Andrea Rossi is continuing his relationship with the American partner Ampenergo.

This rift between Rossi and Defkalion is really bad publicity for cold fusion, or other similar LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reaction) technologies, which already have a credibility problem with mainstream science. I am sure skeptics will descend upon this latest development like a school of sharks.

Why Gold and Silver Prices Will More than Double Again Even From Current Prices

Source: SmartKnowledgeU via GATA
Date: 8/4/2011
by: J.S. Kim

Those that are familiar with my writings about gold and silver for the last six years know that I have said gold was cheap at $500, $600, $700, $800, $1000 and $1,200 a troy ounce and know that I have said silver was cheap at $11, $12, $14, $16, $25, and $30 a troy ounce. Today, I will reiterate that gold is still cheap in the $1500 to $1600 range and that silver is still cheap in the $40 range because the largest movements in gold and silver prices as well as gold and silver mining stocks have still not happened and will materialize over the next four to five years. Again, this doesn’t mean that gold and silver can’t or won’t correct or consolidate again in the future because both PMs always do. I have written publicly so much about this topic over the years (and even in much greater depth to my subscribing members) because I truly believe it is insanity not to participate in one of the best ways to invest in gold and silver today – the ownership of physical gold and physical silver.

Hundreds of millions of investors worldwide, influenced by the propaganda of Western bankers, have consciously made poor decisions not to own a single ounce of physical gold and physical silver today. One of the first realities an investor must understand about the gold and silver market is that the Economics 101 concept of price being set by physical supply and physical demand is an utter lie.  In today’s world of banking and financial industry lies, the price of gold and silver are NOT set by the physical demand and physical supply of either of these metals, but rather by the artificial supply and demand of paper contracts predominantly backed by no physical metal.

By now, the following facts are very well known by seasoned physical gold and physical silver buyers but likely still unknown to the average investor worldwide. A CPM Group document released in the year 2000 stated, “With the start of the London Bullion Market Association’s release of monthly trading data, the market has become aware that 100 times more gold and silver trade hands each year, just in the major markets, than is produced or used. Some market participants have wondered aloud how 10 billion ounces of gold could trade via the major markets each year, compared to 120 million ounces of total supply and demand, while roughly 100 billion ounces of silver change hands, compared to around 628 million ounces of new supply.”  Thus, one can see that the fraud perpetrated by bullion banks in the silver futures market exceeds even the fraud they commit in the gold futures markets.  Take the figures provided above, and a quick calculation reveals that bankers were trading nearly 160 times of paper ounces of silver every year than the annual physical supply of silver mined from the earth.

However, break down these numbers even more and the fraud becomes even more astounding.  While in 2000, about 628 million ounces of new supply of physical silver came to market, in 2010, mine production of new silver supply was slightly higher at 735.9 million ounces. Net government sales accounted for another 44.8 million ounces, old silver scrap provided an additional 215 million ounces, and producer hedging accounted for the final 61.1 million ounces. Thus a total annual supply of roughly 1 billion ounces of silver existed in 2010.  However, industrial usage, photography and jewelry used up nearly 78% of the one billion ounces of physical silver supply in 2010 and left less than 100 million ounces available for minting in the form of silver coins. (Source: The Silver Institute). Despite this tightness of new investment silver supply, there have been days in recent months when more than 250 million ounces of paper silver traded on the COMEX in less than one minute! During the times ridiculous volumes of paper silver were trading on the COMEX, usually the price of silver was plummeting in intra-day trading. Thus, bankers were clearly using this massive artificial supply of paper silver contracts to knock down prices.  On top of this fraud, bankers have stretched the landscape of imaginary supply of gold and silver with their introduction of the gold ETF, the GLD, and the silver ETF, the SLV, both of which started trading in 2006. Both the GLD and SLV are highly suspect, likely fraudulent vehicles that probably are either (1) only partially backed by physical gold and physical silver and/or (2) respectively backed by unallocated physical gold/silver that have multiple claims upon them. Again, fraudulent derivative paper gold and paper silver products create a perception of increased supply even when there is no REAL increase in the underlying physical supply or even at times when physical supply is shrinking. Bankers have created this mechanism specifically to suppress the price of gold and silver and to keep their Ponzi fiat currency scheme alive – a scheme that they utilize every single day to silently steal wealth from every citizen on this planet.

I have heard the criticisms levied against Eric Sprott and James Turk regarding their pro-silver and pro-gold stance in that they are just selling their books as PM fund managers and bullion dealers. However, I believe these criticisms to be patently unfair. I don’t believe that either Mr. Sprott or Mr. Turk are so enthusiastic about the future prospects of gold and silver returns because they just want to “talk their books”. Rather, I believe that they are so enthusiastic due to their deeper level of understanding about PM markets than the average retail investor and the vast majority of uneducated commercial investment industry advisers. Furthermore, I’ve been one of the most passionate supporters of gold and silver for the last decade and I have never acted as a bullion dealer, have never received any commissions from any sales of mining stocks, and have never accepted a single cent from any mining company to provide coverage of their company to my subscribing members though I have been approached many times to do so over the years.

To illustrate the level of misunderstanding that still exists about gold and silver prices, here’s one piece of investment “advice” that landed in my email inbox on August 16, 2008: “The barbarous relic – gold – is another good choice, usually. But gold has already appreciated from just over $300 an ounce six years ago to almost $900 today. It could be a little late.” This adviser went on to push stocks and confidently declared that stocks would be the “big winner” once again over the next several years. From August 16, 2008 until today, the S&P 500 has lost 2.92% while gold has risen +111.33% and silver, +284.47%. Stocks, the big winner? I think not. But selling stocks is the big bread and butter money winner of most commercial investment advisers so that is the primary reason why they overwhelmingly always push their clients into purchasing stocks as opposed to the real big winner of precious metals. I recall reading a newspaper article several years ago from a financial adviser in Florida that claimed she was proud of convincing here clients NOT to buy gold at $800 an ounce because the gold price was too expensive and that it was her duty to protect her clients against their own foolish impulses. On November 8, 2007, thousands of people that subscribe to my free newsletter read the following statements from me:

“So with gold over $800 an ounce, is it still cheap? Emphatically yes, and here’s why. I’m not really sure how all the ‘Gold at 27-year high’ headlines came to be, but… if we experience a correction any time soon, and gold breaks back down to the $720 level again before continuing higher, it will just be really cheap. Here’s why. Anyone that’s ever studied the formula that is used to calculate the Consumer Price Index(CPI)  in the U.S. knows that the formula has been greatly tinkered with over the years to produce absurdly low inflation numbers that are merely an artificially manufactured number that probably fits some pre-determined number the government would like to report.”

So back then, even with gold trading at $800 an ounce, the banker-owned and controlled media in the Western world was filled with stories about an imminent “gold bubble” collapse because gold was at a “27-year high.” It’s important to review history from time to time to be reminded how easily you may have accepted patently absurd proclamations about gold and silver prices in order to avoid falling victim to the same banker-originated and banker-spread propaganda today.  The reason I have been overly passionate about gold and silver for years and still am today is because it takes great passion to overcome the widespread ignorance and deceit spread by the commercial investment industry to their clients about gold and silver.

Let’s see how things have panned out in the stocks versus PM investment game over the past few years. From the launch of my Crisis Investment Opportunities newsletter on June 15, 2007 until July 25, 2010, in a little over four years, my newsletter has returned a cumulative profit of  +211.49%. Over the same investment period, the S&P500, the FTSE100, the ASX200, and top 5 ETF iShares Dow Jones EPAC Select Dividend Fund have respectively returned  -21.39%, -11.99%, -26.51%, and -2.69%. Furthermore, during the next four year period, from 2011 to 2015, I truly believe that an attainable goal for my Crisis Investment Opportunities newsletter is to double or even triple my previous four-year cumulative returns, simply due to the following three reasons:

(1) Western bankers are increasingly losing control over the price suppression schemes they have enacted against gold and silver through their creation of bogus paper derivatives;
(2) The conditions that have lead to Euro and US dollar devaluation are worse today than they were 10 years ago and no underlying fundamental problem of the 2008 financial crisis has been adequately addressed as of today; and
(3) The percentage of people that have the amount of faith I hold in gold and silver to produce superior returns around the world is still minute.
Thus, once the average Dick and Jane retail investor finally believe in the facts surrounding gold and silver versus the garbage propaganda disseminated by crooked bankers and ignorant advisers, the price of gold/silver and PM stocks will finally experience a truly parabolic rise.

Once a small percentage of retail investors worldwide, or even just a small percentage of retail investors in a densely populated country like China, finally realize that bankers have created insane massive paper supplies of artificial gold and silver backed by nothing but air and are consequently moved to purchase their first troy ounce of pure gold and/or pure silver, this very small action will exert tremendous upward pressure on the price of gold and silver. And once this happens, I hope that you will have already secured your physical reserves of gold and silver because it is then that PM prices will truly go ballistic.

U.S. Downgraded to AA+ from AAA by Standard and Poors

The sovereign credit rating downgrade of the United States from AAA to AA+ by Standard and Poors was expected since the ratings agency was looking for 4 trillion worth of budget cuts and only 2.4 trillion worth of (dubious) budget "cuts" were presented over a 10 year period. In the following video Bill Gross, co-founder and co-CIO of PIMCO tells CNBC back on August 2, 2011 that theoretically the downgrade should occur, but that he did not know if Standard and Poors would have the courage to follow through with the ratings downgrade.

Bill Gross: "It is a close call on whether or not they [Standard and Poors] have the spine to follow through with their 4 trillion dollar number."

Apparently Standard and Poors did follow through with the downgrade even though they made a $2 trillion math error in their calculations, which was pointed out to them by the U.S. Treasury, whom S&P notified first before the downgrade press release.

The European market was closed when the ratings downgrade announcement was issued Friday, but according to RT News, the Eurozone leaders are not happy about it:

In a breaking news release from Business Insider, the Treasury questions S&P rating agency's integrity over the downgrade:
Independent of this [$2 trillion math] error, there is no justifiable rationale for downgrading the debt of the United States. There are millions of investors around the globe that trade Treasury securities. They assess our creditworthiness every minute of every day, and their collective judgment is that the U.S. has the means and political will to make good on its obligations. The magnitude of this mistake – and the haste with which S&P changed its principal rationale for action when presented with this error – raise fundamental questions about the credibility and integrity of S&P’s ratings action.
Don't be fooled by the polite language, the U.S. Treasury is hopping mad as well.

Nobel Physicist Invited to Test 1MW Plant

Source: Independent E-Cat News
Date: 7/30/2011

Brian Josephson, the Nobel Prize-winning physicist, asked a question on Andrea Rossi’s blog about the quality of the 1MW demonstration in October. He has been a defender of true research in the LENR field, frequently challenging debunkers to back up their objections with logic instead of repeating the same one-sided attacks so often a signature of pseudosceptics. In answer, Rossi invited him to the test. I am assuming that the question did come from Josephson but there is no doubt that the invite is real:

October demo

You’ve said the 1MW E-cat due in October will be the real test, but in what way will it be more convincing than the ones done so far? Will it be done in such a way that people are sure about the amount of water/steam coming out of the reactor, and how dry the steam is (which affects the heat content)?

Dear Prof. Brian Josephson (Nobel Prize),
First of all, thank you for your very important attention.
Please read very carefully what I am writing to you:
1-The 1 MW plant that we will start up in October will be tested, on behalf of our Customer, by very, very high level world class scientists. You are in the list, so please, if you want and you can, take free the last week of October.
2- The test will be witnessed by several very, very high level world class scientific journalists
3- The E-Cats we are working with now in our factories, which will be the modules of the 1 MW plant, are producing perfectly dry steam, mostly without energy input, as you will see yourself if you will honour us with your presence.
Very Warm Regards,
Andrea Rossi

Done properly (and it will have to be), this public launch should provide enough proof for potential customers. At that point, and not before (no matter who calls for it) we will have some certainty about what happens next. If the launch is also attended by senior science correspondents, this is also the time we should see the story break – one way or another, depending on results. As so many people have said before, proving such a beast will not be hard and the time for preparation should help arm those like Brian Josephson (assuming he accepts) to be ready to give us a definitive ‘yes’ or ‘no’.

Is Debt Ceiling Crisis Being Used to Undermine our Checks and Balances via the "Super Congress"?

Many fear that the debt ceiling crisis may be used as an excuse to sneak in a Trojan horse of totalitarianism called the "Super Congress" or "Council of 13". Essentially, this is an unconstitutional governmental construct which circumvents our normal system of checks and balances. Six members taken from the Senate and House will decide on legislation with the President as the last (thirteenth) member holding veto power. Congress can vote Yay or Nay on legislation presented to them without the ability to make amendments or filibuster. If no decision is able to be reached on the legislation, budget cuts (decided on before-hands) automatically go in to effect. This seems sickeningly similar to the European Union's governance system by which an unelected body of 17 individuals known as "The European Commission" decides all legislation, with the EU Parliament relegated to only an advisory role. (See the "Britain on the Brink" documentary for more information on the European Union).

Here is a special report by Aaron Dykes of Infowars:

Apparently the Infowars team has been burning the midnight oil to get the word out on this issue because they feel it is a highly dangerous and important development.  See here and here and here for Alex Jones' late night rants on the Super Congress.

The Super Congress has been sold to the public as a way to fast track legislation as related to budget cuts to deal with the debt ceiling crisis. However, often evil comes disguised in good intentions and euphemisms. For example, the "Patriot Act" (in my view) actually ended up being a quite onerous monstrosity which stomps all over our Bill of Rights and Constitution.  Something which takes away our rights and is unconstitutional is not "patriotic".  We will have to monitor this development closely to see if the Super Congress is really a euphemism for "Super Dictatorship". If the Super Congress (Council of 13) really overreaches its powers to implement the U.N. Small Arms Treaty and crack down on Americans' second amendment (gun ownership) rights, as Aaron Dykes of Infowars suggests, that would be the ultimate confirmation that we have indeed entered total tyranny.
