The Rothschild family is an international Jewish finance dynasty, which first emerged as a significant force during the 18th century in Frankfurt, Germany. They are the best known of the Jewish finance dynasties to emerge as Europe began to descend into liberalism and cosmopolitanism. They made their mark as war-profiteers during the Napoleonic Wars, allowing them to gain direct influence over many of the governments of Europe. Once acknowledged as the wealthiest family in the world, today their public activity is more nuanced and questions remain to the extent of their present wealth.
In last week’s report on India’s demonetization disaster I began to connect the dots between demonetization, the push for a cashless society, and the biometric identification schemes that will eventually tie everyone’s fingerprints, iris scans, and other identifying details to every transaction they ever make.
Ο π. Παύλος Σαβάμπε Τακούμα ήταν ο πρώτος ορθόδοξος ιερέας της Ιαπωνίας και ένας από τους τρεις πρώτους ορθοδόξους χριστιανούς. Ήταν γιος ενός σαμουράι και γαμπρός ενός σιντοιστη ιερέα. Ήταν φανατικός εθνικιστής και μισούσε κάθε ξένη επιρροή στην χώρα του.
Όταν το Παγκόσμιο Οικονομικό Φόρουμ «προβλέπει», εσύ πρέπει να ακούς προσεκτικά. Γιατί δεν είναι ούτε μέντιουμ, ούτε προφήτες. Είναι το Φόρουμ των ισχυρών της γης που συναντιόνται κάθε χρόνο υπό άκρα μυστικότητα στο Νταβός και οι «προβλέψεις» τους είναι τα σχέδια που πάντα εφαρμόζουν με επιτυχία
As they say, history is written by the victor. No example of this is more true than the Second World War. Although many are quick to paint the Allies as heroes, many forget the large number of Allied war crimes committed against the Axis powers.Some may justify Allied actions by arguing that Nazi and Imperial war crimes, and crimes against humanity, were far, far worse – but this is at best hypocritical. A crime is a crime, regardless of the circumstances – a murder is still a murder, a rape is still a rape, and by ‘justifying’ such actions you become equal to that of which you scorn.The following list documents ten cases of Allied war crimes during WWII, ranging from the small, to the unjust, to the horrendous.

No more marked contrast appears in passing from our Western land to the paper houses and cherry blossoms of Japan than appears in passing from Korea to China. To achieve a correct appreciation of the Chinese the traveller should first sojourn amongst the Koreans for several months, and then, one fine day, cross over the Yalu into Manchuria.
