Higlights. ISIS and the SEC.
How is the Power of silence doing today ? And Yesterday ? What about tomorrow ? What is the end of the road ? Here is a brief roundup.
First of all, concerning SEC Nomination.
Credo. « President Obama is poised to nominate two new commissioners to the powerful Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), but according to reports his shortlist consists of two corporate lawyers with no track record of being Wall Street reformers.1
If the president wants to show he’s serious about cracking down on fraud and abuse, he needs to pick a nominee like current SEC Commissioner Kara Stein. Known as “Elizabeth Warren’s ally on the inside,” Stein is the one SEC commissioner who hasn’t been afraid to take on big banks, and had a proven track record of reform before being nominated.2
But instead, SEC Chair Mary Jo White is reportedly pushing President Obama to help “dilute Stein’s influence” by appointing someone closer to Wall Street.3 We need to speak up before President Obama makes his decision – and demand another nominee just like Commissioner Stein.
Petition to President Obama:
« Nominate strong, independent voices with proven records of reform to fill the two open seats on the Securities and Exchange Commission, looking to current Commissioner Kara Stein as the model of a tough reformer who puts Main Street first. »

Second. Another train-wreck on the Horizon. Read the Global Research and get the confirmation of the Amtrak car crash-like reported in our previous post.
From Global Research. Newly-Declassified U.S. Government Documents: The West Supported the Creation of ISIS.
In other words, the powers supporting the Syrian opposition – the West, our Gulf allies, and Turkeywanted an Islamic caliphate in order to challenge Syrian president Assad.
But the declassified DIA documents show that the U.S. and the West supported ISIS at its inception … as a way to isolate the Syrian government. And see this.
This is a big deal. A former British Army and Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism intelligence officer and a former MI5 officer confirm that the newly-released documents are a smoking gun.
This is a train wreck long in the making.
Despite the fact that the rise of an Islamic State was predicted to have dire consequences for Iraq, including the fall of Mosul and Ramadi, support from the US-coalition to the Syrian opposition continued to manifest, leading to the conclusion that this was either the expressed intent, or an accepted byproduct of these policy decisions.
Syria is Obama’s war – naked aggression by any standard using IS and other takfiri terrorists as US proxy foot soldiers.
