Open Your Eyes News - Edition 34

If this is your first visit I would suggest that, after viewing the articles in this page, you click onto the "Blog Archive" on the right hand panel. Have a look at some of the previous editions too. That will give you a much fuller picture of what is happening than by simply reading what has happened in the last week.
Areas Covered Each Week:
Civil Liberties - Health - Environment - Democracy & International Relations - Economics - Science - The War on Terror - The Next War

Stories of the Week:
Britain wins appeal over Chagos islanders' return home
Events like these make me ashamed to call myself British. What kind of “democracy” steals the island homes of some of its citizens, dumps them to live in abject poverty 1000 miles away for 40 years, and then uses every legal move in its arsenal to deny them both their home or recompense? (to find out more about the Chagos islanders plight watch John Pilger’s award winning 2004 documentary “Stealing A Nation” )

US scientists perfect targeted memory erasure
Are you concerned by this? You should be as used for nefarious purposes the possibilities are endless.........where did that smoking gun from?

Pentagon Wants to See Inside Your House
The Pentagon wants to be able to peer inside your home- picking out where all the major rooms, stairways, and dens of evil-doers are - and presumably then they can wipe your memory so you don't remember the invasion of your privacy (see earlier article).

Democracy & International Diplomacy:
Riots feared if Obama loses
As The Simpsons clip I referenced a fortnight ago showed it is still more than possible for McCain to "win" this sham election. Could the resulting civil disobedience be then used as the excuse to instigate the martial law clamp down that I have frequently warned about (and shown on these pages) is being prepared for in the USA?

American Civil Liberties Union files a Freedom of Information Act request on army units deployed on American streets

European Central Bank council member sees Global `Tri-Polar' Currency System Evolving
As I have warned since the very first edition, the end goal has always been the creation of one world currency & government. The global "financial crisis" is just one step along that path, and here is its natural evolution coming to fore. This is the New World Order that that tiny minority who control the system (as they own it) so crave as it will give them absolute power over all of us, and minimal democratic scrutiny to keep the excesses of corporations in check. Twenty years ago would German's have every believed that within a decade they would have given up the Deutschemark to go into a currency union with the Italians or Greeks?

Hunt was a Watergate whistleblower. He was dying of throat cancer when he filmed the confession. Funnily enough the mainstream media who feted him over Watergate have ignored this.

Nuclear incident would make 9/11 'insignificant'

Will knowing your genes change your behavior?
The problem is not you knowing your genes, it is potential insurers or employers. As soon as this path becomes "usual" a whole new and sinister form of discrimination will emerge in our society.

Finance & Economics:
Global recession fears intensify, markets dive
As I have warned on many occasions previously the markets still have a long way to go. Human beings are a predictable lot, especially when scared. Those with the ultimate power over the markets, politics and the media know that all too well.

'Worst financial crisis in human history': Bank of England boss's warning as pound suffers biggest fall for 37 years
You just wait to see the mess when the US dollar collapses

The death of the dollar?
As I have warned many times before this is pre-planned and part of the “big picture”. The demise of the dollar will lead to the birth of the Amero (NAFTA currency union, mirroring the Euro) which will eventually lead to one world government and one world currency. Notice how many times there has been talk over the last few weeks by politicians for the need for a “New Financial World Order”. This is not a conspiracy, this is psychology. The psychology of wealth, power and corporations.

OPEC Agrees on Sharp Output Cut, Oil Slide Goes On
Remember where you heard this prediction first - Oil will drop below US$50 in the near future, however within the next two years it will be above $200 - that is the ultimate game plan and that is what is going to happen as those with the plan control the game.

Britain's hidden debt

CNBC Economist Blames " Paulson And The Illuminati" For The Economic Chaos
The statement comes at 3.13 into the video and is well worth waiting for.

Gold Market Disinformation Specialists Ply Their Trade
Despite there being unprecedented demand for gold at mints worldwide, the price is falling - is it being kept artificially low? Whatever is clear, it will rise when inflation takes hold, as it historically always does, and it will soar when the bombs start falling on Iran.

Paulson plans buying stakes in Regional US banks
Don't forget that Paulson used to be CEO of Goldman Sachs, and historically these downturns always result in further accumulation of power by the large banks, like Goldman Sachs, as they snap up the small banks on the cheap, thus accumulating ever increasing power and control over the system that they already dominate.

Sun's protective 'bubble' is shrinking
A warning sign that the earth's magnetic poles are about to swap around?

Less Ice In Arctic Ocean 6000-7000 Years Ago
Of course to ensure further funding the report ends with "but this time it is different - its man's fault" - Now, what is exactly “different” about the climatic factors today and 6,000 years ago? From any geological perspective, 6,000 years is simply nothing; it is one part per million of Earth’s history. The sun is still the source of virtually all our energy, and CO2 still, as then, consists of less that 0.04% of the earth's atmosphere.

Quote of the Week:

"The thing that we need in the world today, is a group of men and women who will stand up for right and be opposed to wrong, wherever it is. A group of people who have come to see that some things are wrong, whether they're never caught up with. Some things are right, whether nobody sees you doing them or not."

- Martin Luther King Jr
