Helicopter money arrives in Switzerland. Helicopter Ben’s dream at last comes true.

Helicopter money arrives in Switzerland: $2500 a month for everyone.

So how is this supposed to work? Why would anyone take an entry-level job when they can stay home and watch television, and what is going to motivate fast food workers, waiters, or store clerks to bother to show up for work?

What is the value of money when you don’t have to do anything for it? Could this be the beginning of the end?

Helicopter Money Arrives: Switzerland To Hand Out $2500 Monthly To All Citizens

From Zero Hedge by Tyler Durden

With Citi’s chief economist proclaiming “only helicopter money can save the world now,” and the Bank of England pre-empting paradropping money concerns, it appears that Australia’s largest investment bank’s forecast that money-drops were 12-18 months away was too conservative. While The Finns consider a “basic monthly income” for the entire population, Swiss residents are to vote on a countrywide referendum about a radical plan to pay every single adult a guaranteed income of around $2500 per month, with authorities insisting that people will still want to find a job.

The plan, as The Daily Mail reports, proposed by a group of intellectuals, could make the country the first in the world to pay all of its citizens a monthly basic income regardless if they work or not.  But the initiative has not gained much traction among politicians from left and right despite the fact that a referendum on it was approved by the federal government for the ballot box on June 5.

Under the proposed initiative, each adult would receive $2,500 per months, and each child would also receive 625 francs ($750) a month.

The federal government estimates the cost of the proposal at 208 billion francs ($215 billion) a year.

Around 153 billion francs ($155 bn) would have to be levied from taxes, while 55 billion francs ($60 bn) would be transferred from social insurance and social assistance spending.

That is 30% of GDP!!!

The action committee pushing the initiative consists of artists, writers and intellectuals, including publicist Daniel Straub, former federal government spokesman Oswald Sigg and Zurich rapper Franziska Schläpfer (known as “Big Zis”), the SDA news agency reported. Personalities supporting the bid include writers Adolf Muschg and Ruth Schweikert, philosopher Hans Saner and communications expert Beatrice Tschanz. The group said a new survey showed that the majority of Swiss residents would continue working if the guaranteed income proposal was approved.

The argument of opponents that a guaranteed income would reduce the incentive of people to work is therefore largely contradicted,‘ it said in a statement quoted by The Local.

However, a third of the 1,076 people interviewed for the survey by the Demoscope Institute believed that ‘others would stop working’.

And more than half of those surveyed (56 percent) believe the guaranteed income proposal will never see the light of day.

The initiative’s backers say it aims to break the link between employment and income, with people entitled to guaranteed income regardless of whether they work.

Or put another way – break the link between actually having to work for anything ever again… but maybe this “group of intellectuals” should hark Margaret Thatcher’s words that “eventually you run out of other people’s money!!” . . . (more)

German Muslim Attacks Woman, Pushes Her in Front of Subway Train

German Muslim attacks woman: It seems that not only migrants but second generation Muslims believe they have been given free rein to commit whatever crimes they please.

Even though the perpetrator was captured on the spot and held by witnesses until the police arrived, this murderer has only been charged with suspicion of actually having committed the crime.

It’s almost certain that there will be a breaking point where the citizens of these European countries will have had their fill of their respective governments allowing hordes of foreign criminals to run wild, then trying to cover it all up after the fact. This will not end well.

German Muslim attacks woman by pushing her in front of subway train. When will it end?

German Muslim attacks woman by pushing her in front of subway train. When will it end?

GERMAN-born Iranian Muslim man kills 20-year-old German woman by pushing her into the path of an oncoming subway train in Berlin. German police say a 20-year-old woman has died after being pushed in front of a Berlin subway train by a stranger. The 28-year-old Iranian Muslim has been arrested on ‘suspicion’ of homicide. (Suspicion? Several people grabbed him after witnessing the attack!)

The shocking incident took place when the young woman was standing on the platform waiting for her train and she was pushed in front of an oncoming train by a 28-year-old Hamburg man born of Iranian descent.

After he pushed the woman, shocked witnesses ran toward him and held him back so that he couldn’t escape.

Berlin police spokesman Heidi Vogt said Wednesday that the victim and the suspect didn’t appear to have known each other and there was no indication of a quarrel. Vogt said the man, who was born in Germany but had Iranian citizenship, had previous convictions. . . . (more)

Is the Zika Virus Weaponized GMO or Just Another Bad Idea Gone Bad?

Dr. Francis Anthony Boyle discusses the facts on the Zika virus. Is the Zika virus weaponized GMO?

Is the Zika virus weaponized GMO

Is the Zika virus weaponized GMO: Germ warfare to be executed by a swarm of lethal mosquitos?

Is the Zika virus weaponized GMO, something developed by NWO eugenicists to thin the population of a third world herd, or just simple greed and another bad idea that was never thought through in any sort of way beyond how much money could be made. Either way, the Zeka virus is another GMO disaster genie that’s already escaped its bottle.

Zika Outbreak Epicenter in Same Area Where GM Mosquitoes Were Released in 2015

From Activist Post by Claire Bernish

… Zika seemingly exploded out of nowhere. Though it was first discovered in 1947, cases only sporadically occurred throughout Africa and southern Asia. In 2007, the first case was reported in the Pacific. In 2013, a smattering of small outbreaks and individual cases were officially documented in Africa and the western Pacific. They also began showing up in the Americas. In May 2015, Brazil reported its first case of Zika virus — and the situation changed dramatically.

Brazil is now considered the epicenter of the Zika outbreak, which coincides with at least 4,000 reports of babies born with microcephaly just since October.

* * *

Oxitec first unveiled its large-scale, genetically-modified mosquito farm in Brazil in July 2012, with the goal of reducing “the incidence of dengue fever,” as The Disease Daily reported. Dengue fever is spread by the same Aedes mosquitoes which spread the Zika virus — and though they “cannot fly more than 400 meters,” WHO stated, “it may inadvertently be transported by humans from one place to another.” By July 2015, shortly after the GM mosquitoes were first released into the wild in Juazeiro, Brazil, Oxitec proudly announced they had “successfully controlled the Aedes aegypti mosquito that spreads dengue fever, chikungunya and zika virus, by reducing the target population by more than 90%.”

Though that might sound like an astounding success — and, arguably, it was — there is an alarming possibility to consider.

Nature, as one Redditor keenly pointed out, finds a way — and the effort to control dengue, zika, and other viruses, appears to have backfired dramatically.

The particular strain of Oxitec GM mosquitoes, OX513A, are genetically altered so the vast majority of their offspring will die before they mature — though Dr. Ricarda Steinbrecher published concerns in a report in September 2010 that a known survival rate of 3-4 percent warranted further study before the release of the GM insects. Her concerns, which were echoed by several other scientists both at the time and since, appear to have been ignored — though they should not have been.

Those genetically-modified mosquitoes work to control wild, potentially disease-carrying populations in a very specific manner. Only the male modified Aedes mosquitoes are supposed to be released into the wild — as they will mate with their unaltered female counterparts. Once offspring are produced, the modified, scientific facet is supposed to ‘kick in’ and kill that larvae before it reaches breeding age — if tetracycline is not present during its development. But there is a problem.

According to an unclassified document from the Trade and Agriculture Directorate Committee for Agriculture dated February 2015, Brazil is the third largest in “global antimicrobial consumption in food animal production” — meaning, Brazil is third in the world for its use of tetracycline in its food animals. . . .

Woman Believes She Is a Cat Has Super Night-vision, Or So She Says

Woman believes she is a cat. That’s right she believes she was born a cat and has the instincts of a cat and super night-vision. Her boyfriend who has multiple personalities, one of which is a cat communicates with her in special cat language — meow, meow. Hmm, multiple personalities? You’d think she could do better than that, but I imagine the picking are slim when you’re a woman who believes she is a cat.

Cop Shoots Cop, Then Lies About the Circumstances

cop shoots cop

Cop shoots Cop, then lies about how it happened.

NYPD cop shoots cop, but then is caught in his lies by video. Cops are always whining about how they have to shoot to kill without hesitation because they want to go home to their families, but it turns out that what may be the biggest threat to coming home alive may be their fellow officers. If this isn’t a wakeup call to the boys in blue, then I don’t know what is. Maybe this will snap them out of being trigger happy, but maybe not because these authoritarian thugs are, generally speaking, short on brains with very thick sculls. Besides, they like hurting people.

NYPD Cop Kills Off-Duty Cop, Claiming He ‘Thought He Was a Criminal’

From Counter Current News by M. David and S. Wooten

… One case that without question should have been brought to the national spotlight to the extent that killings like those of Michael Brown and Eric Garner were, was the killing of an off-duty rookie cop by an NYPD police officer in East Harlem.

Officer Omar Edwards, 25, was chasing a suspected car thief and had his gun drawn, on a spring evening in 2009.

With only a second after the command “Police! Stop! Drop it!” Officer Andrew Dunton from the 25th Precinct opened fire on Edwards, killing him instantly.

Police used the tried and true story that “he turned with the gun towards us” – just as they would say in the case of John Crawford in 2014, even after video evidence proved that never happened.

This standard police justification shows that officers can even use this way out when they have gunned down a fellow officer. . . . (more)

Is Trump a Real Conservative? Establishment Republicans Will Tell You No, But . . .

Is Trump a real conservative? Establishment Republicans will tell you no, but their sole interest is in maintaining the status quo. Today’s conservatives are statists whose sole purpose is to enslave you, the public, by serving the corporatists, their puppet-master overlords. They are all bought and paid for automatons, either that or morally compromised (see here and here). So is Trump a real Conservative? The short answer is simply yes, as Lew Rockwell explains below.

Trump Is Not a ‘Real Conservative’

From Lew Rockwell By Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.

So say National Review and the Weekly Standard, and their political bedfellows, who carry the banner of conservatism today. The term conservative, in the current sense, came into use after WWII as part of the CIA-funded Bill Buckley  attempt to wipe out the prewar Old Right, which was anti-statist, anti-interventionist, and anti-imperialist.

Murray Rothbard kept the flame alight, with the help of Ralph Raico and a few other giants. Then came Ron Paul, who spread Murray’s thinking, and restored the Old Right as a movement. This is why he is so hated, for so effectively leading the opposition to the CIA-neocon-Buckleyite ideology of conservatism, and gaining so many young libertarian supporters all over the world.

So what is “real conservatism”? . . . (more)
