Bank Accounts Worldwide Are No Longer 100% Safe

Excerpted from a long post on www.zerohedge.com.

Canada

Incredibly, even Canada is moving toward adopting these “bank bail-ins”.  In a previous article, I explained that “bail-ins” were even part of the new Canadian government budget…

Cyprus-style “bail-ins” are actually proposed in the new Canadian government budget.  When I first heard about this I was quite skeptical, so I went and looked it up for myself.  And guess what?  It is right there in black and white on pages 144 and 145 of “Economic Action Plan 2013” which the Harper government has already submitted to the House of Commons.  This new budget actually proposes “to implement a ‘bail-in’ regime for systemically important banks” in Canada.  “Economic Action Plan 2013” was submitted on March 21st, which means that this “bail-in regime” was likely being planned long before the crisis in Cyprus ever erupted.

So what does all of this mean for us?

It means that the governments of the world are eyeing our money as part of the solution to any future failures of major banks.

As a result, there is no longer any truly “safe” place to put your money.

One of the best ways to protect yourself is to spread your money around.  In other words, don’t put all of your eggs in one basket.

If you have your money a bunch of different places, it is going to be much harder for the government to grab it all.

But if you don’t listen to the warnings and you continue to keep all of your wealth in one giant pile somewhere, don’t be surprised when you get wiped out in a single moment someday.

Decision Point

Each monumental change in history originates in a seemingly insignificant action that crosses an invisible line. The operators within the status quo entity never see the power of the equal and opposite reaction–a scientific law of the universe– to the line drawn in the sand.

From a US Supreme Court ruling:

In order to ascertain the nature of the proceedings intended by the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution under the terms “unreasonable searches and seizures,” it is only necessary to read

Page 116 U. S. 625

recall the contemporary or then recent history of the controversies on the subject, both in this country and in England. The practice had obtained in the colonies of issuing writs of assistance to the revenue officers, empowering them, in their discretion, to search suspected places for smuggled goods, which James Otis pronounced

“the worst instrument of arbitrary power, the most destructive of English liberty, and the fundamental principles of law, that ever was found in an English law book;” since they placed “the liberty of every man in the hands of every petty officer.” [Footnote 3] This was in February, 1761, in Boston, and the famous debate in which it occurred was perhaps the most prominent event which inaugurated the resistance of the colonies to the oppressions of the mother country.

“Then and there,” said John Adams, “then and there was the first scene of the first act of opposition to the arbitrary claims of Great Britain. Then and there, the child Independence was born.”

Thoughts from HalfPastHuman.com

As the Taoists have observed, all floods start with but a single drop of rain. It was from this understanding that the idea of the ‘aggregation of the small that can move the great’ was understood.

It is my contention that something new is about to be seen on this planet. This will be the first time on terra where each rain drop is not only awake, but is aware and actively participating in the collective goal of the flood.

Raven says to the powers…

Fall is here.

Tremble, and fear,

Rain comes.

Egyptians Think a Flying Bird Is a Spy

From a much longer Associated Press article, this excerpt tells why Egypt wondered if someone outside of Egypt was spying from overhead.

CAIRO (AP) – In a case that ruffled feathers in Egypt, authorities have detained a migratory bird that a citizen suspected of being a spy.

A man in Egypt’s Qena governorate, some 450 kilometers (280 miles) southeast of Cairo, found the suspicious bird among four others near his home and brought them to a police station Friday, said Mohammed Kamal, the head of the security in the region.

There, officers and the man puzzled over the electronic device attached to the suspected winged infiltrator. On Saturday, a veterinary committee called by concerned government officials determined the device was neither a bomb nor a spying device.

Instead, they discovered it was a wildlife tracker used by French scientists to follow the movement of migrating birds.
