Good news eclipses boredom, but not bad news. Socrates, that ancient Hellenic philosopher has been recently acquitted and released by a panel of judges, at a time when the Greek populous are being enslaved by the ECB. The dead may walk free, but the living dead are buried deeper than the global pyramid of fiat money.
Across the pond, the American Tea Party epitomises the complex 2012 machinations of olympian-like political gymnastics. What appears as a victory for Mitt Romney by securing Rand Paul's endorsment may well backfire if Ron Paul continues garnishing massive groundswell support by disenfranchised voters. We all know who will win, it's a done deal, but the future is being rewritten as quickly as the ink dries. As Tennessee Williams drily remarked, 'There is a time for departure even when there's no certain place to go.' But whether Ron Paul can convince a traumatised nation they have the sanctity to overcome their lust for democracy remains to be seen. Politicians are seasoned professionals, and as Winston Churchill once remarked, 'a politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen.' The backers have penned Obama as favourite in the trifecta on November 6th. It's a steeplechase and odds are Wall Street's Stallion Romney will crash at the last gate, allowing Paul Sr or Paul Jr to contend the throne. But the money is on the horse, not the rider, for in a rigged race, only the bookies win. Irony will show her face at the eleventh hour, when the ugly impossible becomes beautifully probable.
Topics of pre-crime, indefinite detention, rising homocides in American cities such as Chicago, and the threat of FEMA camps strikes the nerve of many American grassroot civil libertarians, who have rampant fears about the erosion of constitutional rights of all American citizens. Add to this the Eurocrisis, and Benjamin Fulford's oblique that virtual computers are running NASDAQ, London and Tokyo, and political tension appears to be fulminating, boil-like, to a head. Is it any surprise that the pressure is applied to the Middle-East by recent news of a new Iran-Russia-China mega-military exercise scheduled for July? Enough pressure to lance the purulent mess or will it just further wound an already scarred land?
