Police use tear gas and rubber bullets on protesters at a metro strike in Sao Paulo
A metro strike prompts protests in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo, where the World Cup will kick off in six days
Military Police used tear gas, rubber bullets, and stun grenades on protesters during a metro strike in Sao Paulo on Friday morning, June 6, local media reported.
Strong images were released by Media Ninja, an independent media organization which has accompanied popular protests in Brazil since the outbreak of demonstrations during the Confederations Cup last year.
In the video, protesters were approached by Military Policemen and threatened with guns, they then chased demonstrators out of the space with batons.
Subway workers in Sao Paulo were on Saturday to stage the third day of a strike that has brought chaos to the Brazilian city due to host the World Cup opener, as Fifa's vice-president urged authorities to make sure fans could get to the match.
Jim Boyce told the Estado de Sao Paulo newspaper that the protests could cause difficulties for those trying to attend Thursday's opening match.
A public transport strike has caused traffic chaos in Brazil's largest city, Sao Paulo, a week before it hosts the opening match of the World Cup.
Half of all underground stations were closed as transport workers walked out, demanding a 10% pay rise.
Angry commuters stormed the Itaquera station, nearest the stadium where Brazil will play Croatia on 12 June.
Police and other public sector workers say they will also strike in the next few weeks if their demands are not met.
This is the latest setback in Brazil's preparations for the World Cup, which have been criticised by the tournament's global organisers.
But Fifa President Sepp Blatter has called on the Brazilian people to do all they can to support the World Cup.
"We at Fifa, we are confident. It will be a celebration," Mr Blatter told reporters as he arrived in Sao Paulo amid the traffic chaos.
Commuters knocked down barriers set up by striking workers at the station closest to the Itaquerao stadium
"We need to go to work," shouted commuters before jumping on the tracks at the Itaquera station.
The state-owned underground company has offered a 8.7% pay rise, which was rejected by the unions which declared the strike for an undetermined period.
The authorities said they would sack staff if they failed to meet legal requirements and keep at least 70% of public transport services running.
"The government will not be complacent," said Sao Paulo state Transport Secretary Jurandir Fernandes.
"If we gave them a 10% rise, all other state workers would demand the same," Mr Fernandes told Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper.
Even some of Fifa's executives could not avoid the problems caused by the strike, as they sat in traffic jams for hours, trying to get across the city. evacuation match game games plans emergency simulation "sports injury" fifa security
400 'Robocop' style military police set to patrol the World Cup in Brazil next month closely resemble the cops depicted in Terry Gilliam's cult 1985 classic film Brazil, in which a totalitarian government rules a dystopian society with a bureaucratic iron fist.
Brazilian security forces are using undercover agents, intercepting e-mails, and rigorously monitoring social media to try to ensure that violent anti-government protesters do not ruin soccer's World Cup this year, official
Demonstrations in recent months have been much smaller than those last June when Brazil hosted a dress rehearsal tournament for the World Cup, shaking President Dilma Rousseff's government and contributing to an economic slowdown. vandalism of banks and paralyzed parts of major cities as a hard core of perhaps a few thousand protesters nationwide, some of whom wear masks and call themselves "Black Blocs," clash with police.
The job market in America is getting worse, all we are doing is replacing the full time jobs for low paying jobs. In Australia the government is now confiscating bank accounts that are more than 3 years old. The payment system that will bypass America is in full swing in Russia. Another mass shooting was reported and it occurred in Oregon. The government officials are now pushing their agenda to disarm the American people. American towns are now being supplied with military assets to combat the people during the collapse. China is now getting involved in Sudan. Iraq is losing control as the people rise up and take back their country. Israel is using propaganda to convince the world Iran will have nuclear weapons. Syria has started to release prisoners. The central bankers/US government is now keeping a low profile regarding Syria, something is being planned, be prepared.

On the June 10 transmission of the Alex Jones Show, Jones continues breaking down the Las Vegas shooting and marvels at how all its elements neatly tie up into a nice package for the media to demonize Tea Party supporters, Second Amendment proponents, and the alternative media in one fell swoop. Alex also analyzes how the shooting weaves perfectly into the government's rightwing extremist meme, which essentially equates conservatives with Al Qaeda, and looks at the various developments in the ongoing push for amnesty. On today's show, Alex welcomes Andrew Demeter, the young activist and documentary film maker who recently confronted House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on the NSA's "illegal and ubiquitous data collection." We'll also examine how Hillary Clinton's book has begun mobilizing a campaign of sexism in anticipation of a 2016 presidential run, and also take your calls on this worldwide edition.
The amount of this sort of thing happening so close together and it happening globally is a little odd. I really got to wonder the reason behind it, is it societies sense of morality just disappearing, or is it something more sinister. One could speculate that there is a mind altering program where all the government or some black organization that could just push a button and buddy goes crazy. Is it frequencies that humanity pollutes into the atmosphere daily that is corrupting the way people think. It's legal for the US government to use propaganda on the general public, who knows what that entails, everything from programing what you dream at night to slipping in subliminal messages into the shows we watch...?maybe.
The result of such efforts is higher prices. It's as simple as that.

FALSE FLAG ATTEMPT AT OREGON HIGH SCHOOL.
Initial reports were suggesting upto 3 shooters and 1 of them was arrested.
However that quickly changed to a lone gunman that was dead on the scene.
Think back to Sandy Hook and the Aurora Shooting - all reported multiple gunmen. This seems to be the MO when it comes to false flag operations. The patsy is accompanied by what they think is fellow shooters, only for them to be shot and served up as the lone nut job!
Less than a week after Attorney General Eric Holder revived a task force to look at domestic terrorists, a married couple aligned with the anti-government Patriot movement shot dead two Las Vegas police officers, killed a civilian bystander, and then turned their guns on themselves. erad and Amanda Miller had recently spent time at the ranch of Cliven Bundy during his standoff with the federal government. Police say they proclaimed "the beginning of the revolution," and laid an American Revolutionary flag and a swastika symbol on the dead officers' bodies. The Las Vegas shooting came just two days after a man tied to the "sovereign citizen" movement attacked a Georgia courthouse, throwing smoke bombs and shooting a sheriff's deputy, who returned fire and killed him. Authorities say the shooter, Dennis Marx, had homemade explosives, and food and water, suggesting he planned to take hostages. Holder's decision to revive the domestic terror unit comes five years after Republican outrage led the Obama administration to withdraw a key report on the resurgence of the radical right-wing. We are joined by Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors U.S. hate groups and extremists."The [right-wing militia] movement is on fire at the moment, and it may get worse before it gets better," Potok says.

The ECB has not established negative interest rates and the next phase is to put in place capital controls to prevent people from removing their cash. Chase is going to charge customers fees for depositing cash deposits. Russia is continually bypassing the dollar by making deals with companies and countries to use other currency bypassing the dollar. Student's cannot get jobs after college so Obama has announced a program for those student's who are plagued with debt. There was another mass shooting in Las Vegas and now they are spinning the story to fit DOJ hunt for domestic terrorists. U.S is continuing the ramp up of military assets in Eastern Europe. Syrian rebels are meeting with Israel in secret to plan the next event.
The future is uncertain; the America's leadership is weak & disillusioned; America's rivals & competitors are gaining momentum & sharpening their skills; America does NOT have any real & persistence enemies, excepts for the prevailing ignorance & bigotry that has grounded a big portion its population. I pray for sanity to prevail on this land; America is a unique place & there are no others like it; Neither China nor Russia or any other country or people on this planet can take on the role America plays, if America plays its role by relying on the righteous wisdom
What if currency wasn't something that exchanged hands physically, but moved instantaneously between networks, countries, and continents? What if it wasn't regulated by a government, system of banks, or any entity at all? And, what if it was completely open source?
This disruption of what we view as currency isn't just theory, it is already a $1.5 billion dollar movement. Leading the charge is Bitcoin. Launched in 2009, Bitcoin moved to decentralize currency in a big way by leveraging cryptography (instead of government authority) to digitally coin and transfer money. Users can choose to use the currency veiled in anonymity while steadily gaining ground as a valuable, peer-to-peer currency.
With over 11M bitcoins in circulation, the virtual currency is gaining significant traction. Thousands of companies and online retailers, and as many as 140 non-profits currently accept payment in bitcoins. The market value of a single bitcoin was as low as pennies at the outset, has risen as high as $266 and now hovers in the $100-120 range.
The emergence of an alternative currency has had a domino effect. As more people "mine" (create) new bitcoins, more retailers and organizations scramble to adopt the infrastructure to accept this new form of payment. Non-profits have also been early adopters and virtual currencies have provided new ways to fund and extend their work.
The spike in consumer interest has also lead to new currency exchange systems like Mt. Gox---the current most popular online exchange, and Ripple--an emerging platform that calls itself the world's first open transaction network to facilitate exchanges between all kinds of currencies, including Bitcoin. And the rise of Bitcoin has also spurred new similar virtual currencies such as Litecoin. The interest has not gone unnoticed by VC's. Andreessen Horowitz recently completed an angel round for an undisclosed amount to fund OpenCoin, the developer of Ripple.
This fascinating area is also fraught with its own concerns. The characteristic potential anonymity of Bitcoin has led to virtually untraceable funding of illicit activities. The government, which has been slow to recognize virtual currencies, is starting to take notice considering the booming growth of this largely untaxed, unregulated currency.

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
