VANCOUVER, Canada ( Bullions Bull Canada) -- The transformation of the mainstream media from "news" to schlock-entertainment is now complete. Witness this headline from Bloomberg News:
Saving Cyprus Means Nobody Safe as Europe Breaks Taboo Ooh! "Nobody safe." "Breaking taboos." Sounds like an advertising teaser from some low-budget horror movie. Confirming that we are now dealing with the plot from a low-budget horror movie is the second sentence of the article: ...The island nation's rescue sets precedents for the eurozone that may stick in the memory of depositors and bondholders alike as investors debate who will next fall victim to the debt crisis. "Who will next fall victim to the debt crisis"? It wasn't banksters and corrupt politicians who stole depositors' money out of Cyprus banks. It was some amorphous, economic "Godzilla" that did the dirty deed. It's not the bankers' fault. It's not the politicians' fault. Blame the "debt crisis." Where does one start in deconstructing this insane propaganda? The obvious place would seem to be that the "debt crisis" wasn't created by us but by the very same Frankenstein-bankers and Frankenstein-politicians who now claim the right to steal from us to pay for their mistakes. Obviously, the only people who should be "paying for" the debt crisis are the politicians and banksters themselves. But this merely scratches the surface when it comes to the outrageous half-truths peddled by Bloomberg, primarily through the use of absurd euphemisms. Stealing money out of peoples' bank accounts is "breaking a taboo?" No -- it is committing a crime. The fact that it is our governments now committing these crimes and that they tell us it's legal does not change this reality in the slightest. Note the intentionally misleading use of neutral language here as yet a further attempt to absolve the criminals of responsibility for their crime: The island nation's rescue sets precedents... Sets precedents? Really? "Precedents" are the judgments of formal trials, pronounced by a judge -- after all of the evidence has been presented and evaluated in an open courtroom. At the very least it is the outcome from some official (and legal) process, like an election. It's not a small group of criminals assembling behind closed doors and arbitrarily choosing to steal assets from a specific group of victims. That's how crime syndicates operate.
