PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS PROPHETIC MESSAGE! Is Barack Obama preparing to “shoot the American eagle out of the sky” and destroy our constitutional republic? Rick rebroadcast one of the most powerful interviews in his 15+ years of radio broadcasting. The interview with Ohio Pastor T.D. Hale was broadcast on March 27, 2012. Rick says he has an eerie feeling that Pastor Hale’s dream is on the verge of being fulfilled after the November 4 mid-term elections. Rick suggest you take notes during this program – and reverse the order of events in the dream.
The cosmos will cast an afternoon delight over the country on Thursday with a partial solar eclipse.
The moon will clip the sun, making it look like a fingernail as it sets in the west for most of the country and Canada.
The show will reach its height at 5:45 p.m. ET, NASA says, meaning the Eastern half of the country should get a view before the backdrop of golden twilight hues.
The final eclipse event of 2014 occurs at the Moon’s ascending node in southern Virgo on Thursday, October 23, 2014. This will be a partial solar eclipse almost exclusively visible from Canada and the USA. Except for the far northeast, a sunset eclipse will be visible from the eastern half of the USA and Canada.
A major solar flare measuring X1.6 at its peak time erupted from Region 2192 on October 22, 2014. The event started at 14:02, peaked at 14:28 and ended at 14:50 UTC.
A new study from Christian Research company Barna Group reveals that unchurched Americans are the most resistant to outreach efforts by the church and friends than they’ve been in 20 years.
Data collected from 42,855 interviews show that 47 percent of U.S. adults who do not attend church said they were open to being invited to church by a friend – down from 65 percent in 1993.
Idaho state Sen. Steve Vick says one U.S. city’s efforts to force a Christian wedding chapel to perform homosexual marriages in his state is a blatant violation of the Constitution, and he is seriously considering legislation to get the state government out of marriage entirely because he fears churches will be the next target in the aggressive homosexual agenda.
Vick admits eliminating state sanctioning of marriage would be a big step, and he is only beginning to explore that option. Still, he said the response so far is very positive.
“I have discussed it with just a few people,” he said. “I don’t have a bill drafted or anything. I have discussed it at some of the town halls I’ve been at. It actually seems to be fairly well-received. In my opinion, if we’re not allowed to determine the standards for a marriage license, then maybe we should just not issue them.”
“I believe the next step will be to say that churches themselves cannot discriminate,” he said. “They cannot discriminate, and the church will have to marry same-sex couples and not be allowed to say anything. Clearly they’re going after the freedom of the church’s speech through the hate-speech statutes.”
For Vick, officials in Coeur d’Alene and elsewhere are guilty of assaulting freedoms that are the cornerstone of America.
“I still believe [they] are requiring someone to violate a long-held and well-established religious conviction,” he said. “It’s not like somebody established a new religious conviction to discriminate. This is a well-established belief that’s been held by most of the people in the Christian church for over 2,000 years. So, I don’t know that the state should be involved in choosing whose rights to violate.”
At a time when being seen as too close to President Barack Obama is a political liability, Democratic candidates are rushing to distance themselves from the man. But two things are standing in their way – their voting records and the president himself.
Corrupt federal prosecutors presenting false evidence in order to shake down a blameless corporation and bring in tens of millions of dollars seems like a pretty dramatic story. Especially when former prosecutors support the charge and a chief judge acts on the allegations and takes dramatic action. Yet the media silence is deafening.
Eric Holder’s Justice Department is implicated in a dramatic and shocking case of alleged corruption that is so bad that the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California has taken what can rightly be called the “nuclear option” and recused all the judges in the district from the case because they may have been defrauded by the DoJ prosecutors.
So far, aside from the local paper, the Sacramento Bee, it is only Sidney Powell of the New York Observer, writing in the opinion pages of that publication that has paid attention to what should be a prominent national media scandal. In brief, the Sierra Pacific Industries, a lumber producer, was accused by the federal government of starting a large wildfire, and fined $55 million, and compelled to hand over title to 22,500 acres of land. The only problem is that the prosecution was allegedly corrupt, and knowingly submitted false evidence.
Powell aptly sums up the banana republic nature of what seems to have been going on:
This is part of a disturbing and rapidly increasing pattern of abuses by this Department of Justice to line government coffers or redistribute the wealth to its political allies—using its overwhelming litigation might and federal agencies as a tool of extortion and wealth redistribution.
The entire original prosecution against Sierra Pacific appears to have been driven by the Department of Justice’s interest in hitting a “deep pocket” for millions of dollars of revenue. The Defendants’ motion to set aside the settlement reveals a series of fraudulent acts by federal and state authorities that defiles our system of justice.
If these allegations can be proven, federal prosecutors involved should receive lengthy prison sentences. And if Eric Holder can be shown to be involved, he should join John Mitchell in the ranks of former AGs with a prison record. This is intolerable.
The trend of average U.S. citizens being incarcerated by overzealous judges and prosecutors within the police state formerly known as America continues with reckless abandon. In fact, these sorts of cases are becoming so commonplace I simply cannot keep up with all of them. The following story is a perfect followup to my piece earlier today, which shows how American public school students are being arrested or harassed by police for the most minor of infractions, such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.
If you are an adult American slave, you can add not mowing your lawn to the list of prison-worthy crimes in the police state.
One can debate whether, by virtue of fractional reserve banking, every bank in the world is just a ponzi scheme, and where the stability of the system depends entirely on the level of counterparty faith and general confidence in the system, in other words, a grand con game in which the central bank is tasked with making sure the con works as planned when confidnce gets “a little low.”
One can not debate, however, that a bank had become anything but a pure Ponzi scheme – in this case, a piggybank whose funds were embezzled by its owner as described previously in “Fourth Largest Bulgarian Bank Seized After Bank Run: “Let’s Not Tear Down Our House” Central Banker Begs” – when a token review, only upon its faillure, reveals that 87% of its loans were invalid!
The good news: the level of corruption, embezzlement and loan devastation in a country like Cyprus for example, where the entire banking sector had to be bailed out by Europe, was just a little less than what happened in Bulgaria’s fourth largest bank. Actually, it is unclear if that is good news.
The bad news: the Bulgarian central bank “regulator”, just like its peers across the continent, and the world, had no idea what the reality of the balance sheet was until the owner vaporized, as did nearly 90% of the bank’s funds, to borrow a Corzinism.
But it’s ok: remember – all other central banks and regulators have full and unhindered visibility when it comes to the fraud and embezzlement across the other several thousands banks that comprise the European Union. Just like the Fed did when it supervised Goldman and JPM. The only problem is that just like then, so now, nobody dares to do anything, as revealing just how deep the rabbit hole of balance sheet devastation is, goes against the primary directive of every central bank around the globe: preserving faith and confidence in the global fractional reserve banking con game.
As for all those innocent depositors in Bulgaria’s Corpbank who believed the Ponzi and con game would last indefinitely: our condolences: you most likely won’t ever see a dime of your money, even on the deposits that were supposedly “insured.”
If anyone ever needed any confirmation of what we said in June 2012, that “The Stock Is Dead, Long-Live The Flow: Perpetual QE Has Arrived”, now you have it, and only qualified but quantified. Because to translate what Matt King – Citi’s most respected strategist and the only person on Wall Street to warn about the Lehman collapse and its consequences before it happened, just said – if and when the global central bank liquidity tracker ever drops to $200 billion per quarter or less, the market will crash.
So now that “best Keynesian practices” are out of the window, and everyone has once again turned Austrian, and only the “flow of money” (either inside or outside) matters, the question is how much do central banks need to inject to keep the stock market from crashing, let alone continuing to levitate. Luckily, Citi’s Matt King has just done the math, and the answer is…
Here is his answer:
In case anyone missed it, and in case there is still any debate about this issue which we first explicitly stated nearly 6 years ago and were widely mocked by the all too serious intelligentsia, here is the key sentence again:
“it’s the liquidity injections, not fundamentals, which we would argue has been the major driver of markets for the past few years.”
And with that piece of New Normal trivia behind us, we continue:
For over a year now, central banks have quietly being reducing their support. As Figure 7 shows, much of this is down to the Fed, but the contraction in the ECB’s balance sheet has also been significant. Seen from this perspective, a negative reaction in markets was long overdue: very roughly, the charts suggest that zero stimulus would be consistent with 50bp widening in investment grade, or a little over a ten percent quarterly drop in equities. Put differently, it takes around $200bn per quarter just to keep markets from selling off.
That means that virtually any unexpected catalyst could start a run on the trillions of Greek, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Irish debt that is now insanely over-valued. Accordingly, the European bond market is a massive conflagration waiting for an ignition. Worse still, Germany now has all the matches, and it is becoming more evident by the day that its politicians and financial statesman have finally drawn a line in the sand. There will be no outright QE, and, therefore, there is no way to keep Mario’s parking lot from experiencing an eventual stampede for the exist gates.
In that context, today Reuter’s leak was just a probe—-an attempt by the ECB apparatchiks to see whether the German resolve against “state financing” extends to corporate debt as well as outright government bonds. That this desperate ploy elicited an excited equity rally is just a measure of how sick stock markets all around the world have become.
At the same time that the private sector has been stagnant, the public debt has continued to soar, and is now 50% higher than the already bloated levels of 2008. Moreover, with a triple dip all but certain, and virtually no growth in nominal GDP in any event, there is virtually no chance that the aggregate debt of the euro-zone nations will not soon catapult past 100% of GDP. In that context, it is plainly evident that the real agenda of the Brussels bureaucrats and the Draghi gang in Frankfurt is to monetize the public debt, not ignite a miracle of private economic growth and rising corporate profits.
Never, in the history of VIX – the so-called ‘fear-index’ – has this ever happened before…
The last 3 days have seen VIX drop 12.74%, 15.55%, and 13.4% today… VIX has NEVER dropped more than 10% for 3 days in a row ever.
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) predicted we will learn that President Barack Obama had “cut a deal” with leaders in Africa to “bring people in” from areas in the region impacted by the Ebola virus after the election on Monday’s “Sean Hannity Show.”
“I can’t help but believe, just based on the way we’ve got all these nebulous excuses why not to have a travel ban. This president, I guarantee you, we’re going to find out, he has cut a deal with African leaders. They’re going to bring people in,” he said.
Gohmert added, “He has probably told them ‘Look, keep in mind, I’ll have a lot more flexibility after the election.’”
On Friday, Judicial Watch claimed that the administration was “actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment.”
“Humans are the parasite and Ebola is the cure…”
If all this sounds like a scene out of The Matrix, that’s because Agent Smith utters this same line of reasoning, almost word for word, to Morpheus. “Humans are a disease, and WE are the cure!” (The “we” referring to the machines, in the case of the film.)
If you haven’t yet read The Hot Zone by Richard Preston, a non-fiction book published in 1994, you’re way behind the curve on the truth about Ebola.
This book reveals all sorts of astonishing truths about Ebola which have since been buried or distorted by a modern-day government operating in total denial. For example, the book documents numerous cases of an Ebola variant spreading via airborne routes among monkeys housed in completely separate rooms in level-4 biohazard facilities run by the U.S. Army. The fact that Ebola could spread through the air was known in the 1990s (but is ridiculously denied by the CDC today).
On the heels of Sweden’s military deployment (following the discovery of a damaged Russian sub), it appears Russia is taking no chances with its access to Arctic resources.As Reuters reports, the Russian defense minister announced today that Russian military units will be deployed along the entire Arctic border from Murmansk to Chukotka in 2014.
As The Guardian concludes, The Arctic, which is governed by international maritime law, is also the focus of other disputes. Canada regularly carries out military exercises in its Arctic territory. Relations between Ottawa and Moscow have cooled significantly since the start of the Ukraine crisis.
Canada has raised its terrorism threat level to medium from low because of a rise in “general chatter” from radical groups such as Islamic State and al-Qaida, a government official said on Tuesday.
“This increase is not the result of a specific threat,” said Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, a spokesman for Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney. A suspected Canadian militant ran over two soldiers in Quebec on Monday, killing one of them.
UPDATE: Ottawa Police Confirm at least 3 Separate Shooting Sites and Multiple Suspects
At least two people are injured, including a soldier, after shots were fired in the Parliamentary precinct in Ottawa on Wednesday morning; one shooter is dead and police suspect as many as two others are on the loose.
A dark-clothed gunman fired the shots just before 10 a.m. at the Canadian War Memorial, where a uniformed soldier was shot. The gunman then fled for Parliament Hill, where he unleashed more gunfire inside Centre Block. A security guard was injured before the sergeant-at-arms shot the suspect dead, according to multiple reports.
Ottawa Police said there was also an incident near the Rideau Centre, a large mall metres from Parliament Hill.

“I don’t think he gives a d**n,” North said. “I think he’s hoping that he can hold the lid on this until after this election so it won’t be just another disaster for this administration.”
The U.S. and Western powers currently negotiating with Iran on its nuclear capability are willing to reach an agreement with Tehran at any price, warns a paper prepared by Saudi Arabia’s intelligence organizations.
The document, the contents of which were obtained by WND, was presented by the Saudis this week to all members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, an umbrella made up of all Arab states of the Persian Gulf, except for Iraq. The council consists of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
According to the Saudi intelligence document, the P5+1 powers of the U.S., United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and Russia attempting to reach a deal with Iran ahead of next month’s deadline have conceded Iran can maintain a civilian nuclear infrastructure, as had been widely assumed.
However, the document warns the red lines of the Western nations will still allow Iran enough nuclear material to assemble weapons within months if Tehran decides to abrogate the agreement at any time. On the eve of midterm elections in the U.S., the Saudis advised members of the Gulf Cooperation Council to try to influence Congress to not approve an agreement that allows Iran to retain any kind of nuclear facility, even for civilian purposes, according to sources within the council.
The Saudis argued that Iran cannot be trusted, alleging that for years Tehran has cheated the community, perpetually hiding aspects of its program from the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA.
“The Iranian issue indeed worries us,” he said in Hebrew. “The question of if there will be an agreement and what kind of agreement worries us. I’m talking about that here and behind closed doors we express our concerns.”
He also lashed out at Turkey, saying the country supported Hamas terrorists.
Expert-level talks between Iran and world powers are to be held in Vienna on Wednesday and Thursday, according to an Iranian official.
Iran and the P5+1 group of nations — Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany — are seeking a comprehensive agreement over Tehran’s nuclear program by a November 24 deadline.
Iranian Intelligence Minister Seyed Mahmoud Alawi announced on Tuesday that the Islamic regime had arrested spies near its Bushehr nuclear reactor, as the country grows ever more paranoid about attempts to sabotage its nuclear program.
Days shy of the 20th anniversary of the Israel-Jordan peace agreement, Amman has launched a media blitz against what it terms “attempts to change the status quo at the al-Aqsa mosque.” The claim comes amid recent clashes between Israelis and Palestinians in the Temple Mount area, and against a backdrop of reports of a Knesset bill that would permit Jews to pray at the site.
