    London Remains the Financial Capital for Market Execution – Armstrong

    QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; You have said that Brexit is good for Britain and that the financial center could never move to Paris or Frankfurt and survive. Can you elaborate on that topic for us Brits?

    GS

    ANSWER: It is amazing that the politicians are so clueless and the heads of the banks are far too often just talking politics. London is bigger than all the financial centers in Europe COMBINED! Because of regulation being consolidated in Britain, it even beats New York City – a fact that is often overlooked. The United States has SEVEN regulatory agencies that compete with each other for power compared to one for Britain. London still wins hands down.Neither Frankfurt nor Paris even has the infrastructure to function as London does.

      I would suggest that folks in that position take that action on their own. Charitable causes are usually tax deductible are the far flung results of these super wealthy people could make some interesting changes in our world.

      Why force other people to duplicate you actions? When that happens are society moves away from freedom and into something that could be very negative. how do you spell “disincentive”?

      As you know we support worthwhile causes to the best of our ability, but we do not support causes that are simply vehicles for administrators of those causes to prosper.

      We also do not support folks who are simply looking for handouts.

    I don’t know why the government bothers collecting income or social security taxes anymore. Why not just send everyone a check for 10K each month? The government can get all the money it needs by selling 100 year treasury bonds to the Fed.

    I enjoyed the Kengor interview. I agree, many liberals have internalized ideals that lead them toward socialism/communism, or at least neutralize their resistance to it.

    I would point out that the Right has its own, equally bad blind spots–a tendency to support war and corporations almost unthinkingly, and Christian Zionism, which is destroying Christianity in the Middle East.

            Christians United for Israel
            From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

            Christians United for Israel logo
            Christians United for Israel (CUFI) is an American Christian organization that supports Israel. Its statement of purpose is “to provide a national association through which every pro-Israel church, parachurch organization, ministry or individual in America can speak and act with one voice in support of Israel in matters related to Biblical issues.” It is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States,[1] with 2.2 million members.[2] It operates under the leadership of John Hagee.[3]

            he millions of Christians massacred by the Bolsheviks in the Soviet Union was probably the worst genocide in history. Nagasaki was selected for destruction with the A-bomb because it was Japan’s center of Christianity. In 1945, hundreds of thousands of Christians in Dresden were turned to ashes on Ash Wednesday.

            Of course, anticipating political sermons from pastors may be unrealistic. Most churches operate as 501(c)(3) organizations, which causes some clergy to fear losing their church’s tax-exempt status if they speak too politically.

            I have read the choosing of nagasaki was about the christians, we could have read the same article.

            Greatest story never told has a speech by churchill concerning the destruction of christianity, what he doesnt mention is its the Italians,germans hungarians etc that were the christians.
            I think its gsnt, might be communism by the back door…its been awhile.

            If the bolshiviks killed christians, things sure changed in Russia with Putin, hes really a pro christian kinda guy.

            As I understand, the 501(3)(c) designation keeps NGOs and Churches from getting too involved in politics. I’d be surprised if Hagee doesn’t manage to dodge that obstacle.

            What I find funny is christians dont realize they are supporting Israel over their own country.
            Even over their own beliefs, well, what they say they believe anyway.

            They dont know that goyim are ment to serve? or the U.S. can dry up and float away? etc
            Jews look at christians as equal to whats under their fingernail, the christian god boils for eternity in human excrement, and they serve, serve and serve some more.

            Thats why I wonder if the jews are not correct in their thinking.

            That always baffles me when I think about it.

      Another comment that i have to make on your comment, GH, is i find the term “Christian Zionism” to be interesting. I personally believe that Military Industrial Complex is more accurate.

      The folks in the Middle East, by their actions, are certainly giving th MIT an opportunity to make a lot of money. And, the MIT is definitely taking advantage of it.

      • On May 5, 2018 at 10:10 am,
        GH says:

        A good point about the MIC. I did not mean to imply that it is the sole responsibility of Christian Zionists. But I don’t think it could happen without their political support.

        In my opinion, and I am keeping an eye out for solid evidence on this, there has been an active subversion campaign against Christianity by the ‘Money Power’, which has put a lot of $$ behind skewing understanding of the Bible.

          Interestingly some of my Progressive friends are pretty anti Christian. Let me ask an interesting question: Are the Obama’s and the Clinton’s church goers? Notice that I did not say “professed Christians” but “church goers”.

            GH says:

            Yes, I would say hostility to Christianity, and religion in general, is common to many ‘progressive’. Seems there has been a PR campaign to blame religion for most wars in history, the Inquisition, burning of witches, permissiveness to pedophilia, hypocrisy with regard to racism and slavery, and perhaps the Dark Ages all together. As usual, the PR is largely based on a very loose grasp of history.

            I don’t know if the Clintons or Obamas ever go to church, but if they did it wouldn’t alter my assessment of them in the least.

    http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/afghan-futility-and-the-not-so-curious-case-of-lieutenant-jordan-rich/

    Does anyone care about the tremendous amount of money our rulers are wasting, not to mention the waste of life? Afghanistan alone has been going on for 17 years.

    For the amount of money the criminals who rule this country are wasting in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Niger…the list is endless…the f’ers could have paved the roads of this country in gold…well, maybe silver. These people need to be tried for war crimes and if convicted treated the same way Nazi war criminals were treated.

    Meanwhile, speaking of roads, I just got yet another local tax increase to fix the roads, but we all know the politicians will do what they always do and divert the money to the public employee pensions and raises.

        4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.”

        5. Centralisation of credit in the hands of the State, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.”
        6. Centralisation of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the State.”
        FCC, FTC, DOT, FAA, TSA, CBP–oh it’s an alphabet soup of communications and transport regulators.
        7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.”
        8. Equal liability of all to labour. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture
        9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equable distribution of the population over the country.”
        10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labour in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.”
        This may be tenth on the list, but it is number one in ensuring all the rest fall into place.

        t was designed so that the state and corporations could work together to train an obedient workforce, with the public footing the bill.
