11513 Gleaning NWO 666 Crypto Fascism Seals The Church Of The Laodicean Beast 501C3 Sodom And Babylon Is Risen And Ready To Receive It’s Own Judgment Which Is Death
It’s no secret by now that governments in Europe, Japan and America have spent and borrowed beyond their means. As IceCap’s Keith Dicker notes, including both current debt and future unfunded liabilities, it is estimated America owes over $87 trillion dollars, while the Eurozone countries are on the hook for over $89 trillion. That’s a fistful of dollars. From a tax perspective, the incapacity of these super economic powers, becomes all the more clear. America’s annual tax revenue is only $2.5 trillion, while in Europe, they manage to squeak out roughly $5 trillion. From this view, America is leveraged 34.8x their tax revenues, while the Eurozone is leveraged at 17.8x their tax revenue. As Keith points out in his excellent letter, for the US, Japan, and Europe, Elvis has very much left the building on getting back to ‘normal’.
Jeremiah had written on a scroll about all the disasters that would come upon Babylon–all that had been recorded concerning Babylon. He said to Seraiah, “When you get to Babylon, see that you read all these words aloud. . . . When you finish reading this scroll, tie a stone to it and throw it into the Euphrates. Then say, `So will Babylon sink to rise no more, because of the disaster I will bring upon her. And her people will fall.'” (Jer 51:60-61, 63-64)
The image of the millstone has yet another source, closer to John’s time than the prophecies of Jeremiah. Jesus said to his disciples that if anyone “shall offend” (KJV) or “put a stumbling block” (NRSV) before one of Jesus’ “little ones,” it would be better for that person “to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck” (Mk 9:42). Rome has not exactly “put a stumbling block” before Jesus’ disciples or “caused them to sin” (see Mk 9:42 NIV). She has deceived the rest of the world instead. But to them she has done something far worse, for in her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth (v. 24). The prostitute in John’s vision was guilty of many crimes and boundless self-indulgence, but what condemns her above all is that she “was drunk with the blood of the saints” and “those who bore testimony to Jesus” (17:6). Because she offended the “little ones” who belong to Jesus, she is thrown into the sea, to sink like a stone and never be seen again.
Comet X1 LINEAR will reach a perihelion of 1.6 Astronomical Units (A.U.s) from the Sun on February 21st, 2014, and pass 1.6 A.U.s from the Earth around June 28th, 2014. The comet has a high inclination of 44.4° degrees relative to the ecliptic, and is on a respectable 1872 year orbit.
You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
The ancient Israelites called usury “a bite.” It is like the slow poison of a serpent: “Usury does not all at once destroy a man or nation with, as it were, a bloody gulp. Rather, it slowly, sometimes nearly imperceptibly, subverts the victim’s constitution until he cannot prevent the fatal consequences even though he knows what is coming.”
Usury is the lending of money with interest.
Historically, many cultures regarded the charging of interest for loans as sinful. Some of the earliest known condemnations of usury come from the Vedic texts of India. Similar condemnations are found in the religious texts from Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. At times, many nations from ancient China to ancient Greece to ancient Rome have outlawed loans with any interest. Though the Roman Empire eventually allowed loans with carefully restricted interest rates, the Christian church in medieval Europe banned the charging of interest at any rate.
The fact that the contractors being hired must have a “Top Secret” security clearance clearly suggests that the DHS is not merely seeking to hire armed guards, but Blackwater-style mercenaries who will be engaged in some kind of clandestine activity.
The notion of an armed security force operating domestically under a “Top Secret” designation, something normally reserved for foreign spying and military operations, underscores how the DHS increasingly treats America like some kind of occupied territory.
Just over 400-years ago today, a group of 13 conspirators were caught trying to assassinate King James I of England and blow up the House of Lords in what became known as the Gunpowder Treason.
If you’ve ever seen the movie V for Vendetta, you know the story. Guy Fawkes was found underneath the House of Lords with three dozen barrels of gunpowder… and to this day, his effigy is still burned annually in commemoration of the event.
Fundamentally, the Gunpowder Treason was about freedom. The English monarchy at the time was controlling nearly every aspect of the economy and their subjects’ lives– from what they could wear to how they could worship.
“Sumptuary laws” which regulated private behavior were commonplace. Elizabeth I, for example, re-introduced a beard tax on all facial hair grown in excess of two weeks.
She also published long lists, categorized by social class, dictating precisely what color and type of garment her subjects were required to wear.
It turns out these sumptuary laws were just an early form of state-sponsored corporate welfare; the English textile industry had paid Elizabeth huge sums of money in exchange for royal decrees about knitted caps and woolen socks.
As a consequence, a great deal of English labor and disposable income was misallocated towards silly garments instead of being put to more productive uses… and the country was in an almost perpetual state of stagnation.
Members and supporters of hacktivist collective Anonymous are marking Guy Fawkes Day with a global ‘Million Mask March’ to protest against government corruption, corporate malfeasance and the expanding surveillance state.
The global action on November 5 coincides with Guy Fawkes Day, which is celebrated by Britain with fireworks to remind of the botched attempt to blow up the Parliament in 1605. But the image of the notorious plotter has a new meaning for Anonymous and their supporters today. The Guy Fawkes mask was adopted by the hacker activists from the V for Vendetta graphic novel and film as a symbol of the anarchic fight against tyranny.
Furthermore, the judge pointed out that OGCMA received a state tax exemption with the understanding the Christian group’s property was to be “open for public use on an equal basis.” Since the association did not allow a lesbian wedding, it violated the terms of the agreement.
OGCMA denied the couple’s request, saying homosexual unions went against the group’s beliefs. The couple sued and in January 2012 a New Jersey state administrative law judge ruled the Christian group had no grounds for denying the couple’s request and had discriminated against them.
Well over a year ago, we first suggested that the conventional wisdom thesis for the bounce in home prices – namely a spurt in household formation – was dead wrong. Sure enough, as has been confirmed empirically, the only reason for the latest dead cat bounce in home prices has been the Fed, and banks complicit in engaging in “foreclosure stuffing.” And while it was easy to deflect the topic of just what is driving the housing market (because none of the bulls would want to admit it is just another credit and liquidity-driven bubble) for over a year, with the traditional “things will be back to normal soon” fall back used every time, as time passed and none of the traditional ingredients for a housing recovery fell into place, some started scratching their heads. This came to a boiling point today, when real-estate firm Trulia, looking at the latest Census Bureau data on household formation, finally threw in the towel and rang the panic button as not only have young Americans set anchor in their parents’ basement, but even refuse to get a job.
- Oct. Trulia price, rent monitors show asking prices rose 0.6% m/m in Oct., prices up 11.7% y/y, rents up 2.7% y/y
Why? Just ask Mr. Chairwoman. After all Mr. Chairwoman has been rumored (wrongly) to be very oracular when foreseeing housing bubbles. Like last time supposedly.
Just as the European ‘markets’ have entirely disconnected from fundamental reality, Japan’s bond market – the largest in the world – “is dead, with only the BoJ driving prices,” Mizuho warns. Crucially, once again just as in Europe, “these low yields are responsible for the lack of fiscal reform in the face of Japan’s worsening finances. Policy makers think they can keep borrowing without problems.” Market functions are sacrificed for the sake of ending deflation, but “liquidity has evaporated as the BOJ has gobbled up most of the market.” This means that a reduction in monetary stimulus could cause a rapid drop in bond prices, which, just as in the US, “will make it difficult for the BOJ to normalize policy.” Simply put, as Bloomberg notes, the BoJ has killed the nation’s sovereign bond market, leaving it unable to reflect either the success of stimulus policies or fiscal risks.
“The Fed is playing a very dangerous game,” Starwood Capital’s Barry Sternlicht warns,”and they need to stop.” Sternlicht has quadrupled his firm’s net worth in this time and, to the incredulity of the CNBC anchors, warns, “this is bad, this is a heroine addiction.. and now they are printing more money than the deficit.” The outspoken CEO of the $29 billion fund, noted “all my friends who are money managers.. are much closer to the sell button than they ever were before,” adding that “everyone’s holding cash,” since if they start to get nervous “volatility will come back instantly.” Simply put, he concludes, “you know when this ends, it’s gonna get ugly.”
A new survey of family offices by Citi finds that thewealthy are cash heavy—meaning they may fall short of the investment returns they’re expecting.
Wealthy families have about 39 percent of their assets in cash, according to a recent poll of more than 50 large family office representatives from 20 countries conducted by Citi Private Bank.
“they should knock this off. This is bad. This is a heroin addiction. The more you get on it, the worse it’s going to get; the more asset values inflate.”
It started with an invitation to the Broadway production of The Lion King in Tokyo for the Navy commander, his wife and their children.
In the end, the Malaysian defense contractor known in military circles as “Fat Leonard” would use prostitutes, plane tickets and other bribes to hook the U.S. Naval officer into a scheme that overbilled the Pentagon by millions, investigators say in court papers.
The political moderators issued a list of media sources with “custom flair”, ie ones it approves of, as well as a banned list. Users have reacted with anger that the approved list contains purely mainstream news sources such as The BBC, CNN, AP and The New York Times.
The banned list, meanwhile contains practically every major alternative news source you can think of, including The Drudge Report, breitbart.com, Infowars.com, Prisonplanet.com, The Daily Caller, World Net Daily, Salon, The Blaze, Vice.com and Mother Jones.
In comments about the survey methodology, the National Association of Broadcasters also expressed concerns about the “constitutional implications” of the FCC’s inquiry.

ABC News implied that Alex Jones was responsible for motivating the LAX shooter last night during a report introduced by Dianne Sawyer which linked criticism of big government with violence.
Sawyer introduced the piece by identifying “a shadowy subculture which may have encouraged a disturbed young man.” It turns out that this “shadowy subculture” (criticism of the TSA and big government in general) is not shadowy at all, is in fact out in the open and has been supported by major political figures like former Governor Jesse Ventura and Senator Rand Paul for years.
Seconds after wondering “what clues could have prompted his spree,” the report lamented how the TSA’s “thankless procedures” have made the federal agency a target, before playing a clip from the Alex Jones Show in which host Jones remarked, “no kidding, who else wants a job groping men, women and children all day.”
The report concludes by noting how amongst “anti-government activists,” the TSA “embodies a federal government that’s too invasive, corrupt and incompetent.”
The hit piece is clearly designed to suggest that anyone who criticizes the TSA or the federal government in general is in league with gunman Paul Ciancia, and implies that Alex Jones was a direct inspiration for the shooting, despite his documented and consistent message of non-violence.
Just a month ago, the President and his administration gloated asRepublican support plumbed new record low depths amid the shutdown debacle. Just last week, however, amid the ongoing snafu that is the Obamacare launch, the President’s approval rating itself dropped to an all-time low (though the media was oddly quiet about that). This week sees another milestone on the verge of being broken as the “glitches” – both technological and physical – continue, stocks surge, and employment stagnates five years after the end of the recession… the President’s disapproval rating is within 1 point of its record high.
Less than 10% of Americans stand up to tyranny on a daily basis. I estimate that about half of the country is acting like they are dumber than a box of rocks and are content to simply live in ignorant bliss for as long as it is possible to do so. What about the rest of us? For those who know what is at stake and refuse to do anything, are condemning our children to live in a hellish nightmare for which they will someday hate us for.
In response, prominent retired generals – ranging from Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely, a Fox News senior military analyst, to Lt. Gen. William G. Boykin, a founder of the Army’s elite Delta Force, to Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Patrick Henry Brady – have all gone on the record with WND, characterizing Obama’s actions as nothing less than an all-out attack on America’s armed forces.
“A Prophecy of the Future of America.”
In one scenario, the church and the nation turns back to God and experiences what world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham calls an end-times “great spiritual awakening.”
In the other, America doesn’t repent of its immorality and experiences a “crisis of unprecedented proportions” – a complete economic collapse, a surprise nuclear or terrorist attack or a wave of devastating earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, solar flares and other cataclysmic disasters.
The proposed legislation bars employers with 15 or more workers from making employment decisions – hiring, firing or compensation – based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
President Barack Obama has publicly voiced his support for the measure, three years after Congress lifted the ban on gays serving openly in the US military, and months after the US Supreme Court struck down a federal law banning federal recognition of same-sex marriage.
“Obama has rebranded himself as a liar, forever,” continued Smith. “He will carry this new label to his grave.”
When almost a year ago, we proclaimed the New Normal S&P abbreviation to stand for Stalingrad and Propaganda (or, alternatively, Poorski), little did we know just how far the references to Yosif Vissarionovich would stretch. Today, courtesy of the Fed’s Eric Rosengren and the Boston Business Journal, we find just how deep the Marriner Eccles’ Politburo fascination with its central planning idol, Iosif Vissarionovich, truly runs.
And we certainly wish we were making this stuff up.
Via the Boston Business Journal:
Next time you absent-mindedly watch the ads as you’re waiting to pay for a tank of gas, they might be watching you back.
Digital advertising company Amscreen (a division of Alan Sugar’s Amshold) has announced a deal with British supermarket giant Tesco to roll out its OptimEyes technology across their 450 petrol forecourts. Screens near the pump will have a built-in camera with facial detection to measure how many people are viewing, and to determine their gender and age range based on visual features. In a press release, Amscreen claims the tech will “help to deliver more measurable campaigns for advertisers, as well as more relevant on screen content for the Tesco customer.”
Under the radar from the prying eyes of the public, South Carolina made it legal to get rid of their homeless problem. The people were given a choice, FEMA Camps or jail. The irony of it all was this happened right at the 50th Anniversary of Civil Liberties in August. The bad part is different cities from Boston to New York are shipping off their homeless, and no one cares. Is this coming to a town near you?
In August the city of Colombia, South Carolina, had a problem. A festival honoring the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement was coming to town. They couldn’t be seen with all the homeless when guests arrived from all parts of the United States. So the city council held a vote and made homelessness a crime.
The Columbia City Council unanimously approved the plan, creating special police patrols that would enforce “quality of life” laws involving loitering, public urination and other crimes not necessarily restricted to the homeless population. Those officers would then offer the homeless a choice: Go to jail for their homelessness or be shuffled to a 240-bed, 24-hour shelter on the outskirts of town, which they wouldn’t be allowed to easily leave.
Scientists are struggling to find the trigger for a disease that appears to be ravaging starfish in record numbers along the U.S. West Coast, causing the sea creatures to lose their limbs and turn to slime in a matter of days.
Kuru is a very rare disease. It is caused by an infectious protein (prion) found in contaminated human brain tissue.
Kuru is found among people from New Guinea who practiced a form of cannibalism in which they ate the brains of dead people as part of a funeral ritual.
One of the infected men in the German hospital was confirmed to have eaten human flesh, and he eventually died. When the Turkish hospital was asked on the details of the cannibalism case, they refrained from saying anything.
Pulled out of the case and readied for action, the drone follows GPS waypoints to reach its target. Once there, it sends video and still images back to the operator. The Black Hornet can fly for 20 to 25 minutes before needing to recharge, so it’s limited to traveling just three-quarters of a mile (1,200 m) in one shot.
^^^What the moron does not take into account is an enemy with the same drone.
Microscopic robots may soon be detecting and even preventing diseases instantly at doctors’ offices across the nation, eliminating the need for multiple tests or treatment plans.
It may sound like science fiction, but one of the nation’s top nanotechnology scientists said it could be only four or five years away.
“I think it’s coming pretty soon,” said Dr. Shree Singh, the director of the Center for NanoBiotechnology Research at Alabama State University. “In the near future, you will have some small nanomachines that will basically cure the disease before it even happens. Basically any kind of disease diagnosis or prevention can be done through nanobiotechnology.”
Having described the US as “worse than Japan in the 90s” during his last appearance, ECRI’s Lakshman Achuthan remains adamant that (despite Bloomberg TV anchors’ insistence that stocks are at all-time highs must mean something) the US has been in recession since last year and remains so. His comments that “you wouldn’t have four years of zero-interest rate policy and quantitative easing if everything was okay,” are as cogent now as then as he critically explains, as we have noted here and here, that the attention being paid to ‘soft data’ surveys (such as ISM) is entirely mistaken since ISM/PMIs are now negatively correlated to actual production. The data (hard data doesn’t lie) in hand, he notes, suggest downward revisions and well within the range of a mild recession and “the market is disconnected.”

November 05, 2013 – SPACE – A team of researchers has discovered the first examples of black holes in globular star clusters in our own galaxy, upsetting 40 years of theories against their possible existence by using an array of radio telescopes to pick up a certain type of radio frequency released by these black holes as they eat a star next to them. Black holes in globular clusters may provide a way for them to get close enough to one another to merge into bigger black holes that may produce the ‘ripples in spacetime’ we call gravitational waves,” says Tom Maccarone, an associate professor of physics at Texas Tech. “Trying to detect gravitational waves is one of the biggest problems in physics right now, because it would be the strongest test of whether Einstein’s theory of relativity is correct.”

X3.3 Solar Flare
A very radid solar flare measuring X3.3 was detected around sunspot 1890 at 22:12 UTC. Because the event was very impulsive, a large scale CME is sometimes not likely, however I will provide updates should any such plasma cloud be associated. The event was accompanied by a 10cm Radio Burst (TenFlare) measuring 400 sfu and a Type II Sweep Frequncy Event with a velocity of 1380 km/s. Stay tuned for updates.
The X3.3 event comes in as the third (3rd) largest flare in terms of peak X-Ray flux during the current solar cycle 24. For an updated list click HERE.
On this day, exactly 10 years ago, the largest ever recorded solar flare in history erupted from Sun’s western limb. This mega flare started its historic eruption at 19:29 UTC from Active Region 10486 and peaked around 19:50 UTC.
SOLAR WATCH: Activity On The Sun Increases – Sunspot 1890 Erupts With Major X3.3 Solar Flare And Coronal Mass Ejection; THIRD LARGEST Event In Terms Of Peak X-Ray Flux During Solar Cycle 24; Impulsive Event Directed South And Away From Earth!
