Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

Zechariah 12 KJV – The Burdensome Stone 

In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.

And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

“In a quick diplomatic move, the US and Britain signed an agreement with Ukraine for the disarming of all its nuclear weapons, in exchange for a signed contract that said that the two powers would guarantee Ukraine’s intactness and and security, and are committed to intervening if and when its intactness is threatened.

Ukraine’s Lesson for Israel: ‘US Guarantee Worthless’

The lesson for Israel from Ukraine’s current plight, according to ex-MK Aryeh Eldad, is that Western guarantees of Israel’s security must never be trusted.

Russian Fleet Gives Ukrainian Crimea Forces Ultimatum To Surrender Or “Face Storm”, Ukraine Defense Minister Quoted

Maybe time to send Obamacare to Kiev: so many young, strapping participants just waiting to sign up? Or maybe it just time to raise minimum wages in the Ukraine while giving the local population the safety of mind that comes with investing in the “no risk, guaranteed return” MyRA.

Obama’s Latest Tactic: “Isolate Russia”

So much for “isolating” Russia.  The Chinese government is publicly siding with Russia on the crisis in Ukraine, and that is very bad news for the United States.  Not only does it mean that the U.S. is essentially powerless to do anything about the situation in Ukraine, it also means that Russia and China are starting to understand how much economic leverage that they really have.  Yes, the Obama administration can threaten to slap “sanctions” on Russia or threaten to kick Russia “out of the G8“, but those actions would not actually hurt too much.  On the other hand, Russia and China hold approximately 25 percent of all foreign-owned U.S. debt, and if they started massively dumping U.S. debt it could rapidly create a nightmare scenario.  In addition, it is important to remember that Russia is thelargest exporter of natural gas and the second largest exporter of oil in the world.  And China now imports more oil than anyone else on the planet does, including the United States.  If Russia and China got together and decided to kill the petrodollar, they could do it almost overnight.  So when it comes to Ukraine, it is definitely not the United States that has the leverage.


Washington manipulated peace talks to fail. Odds favor full scale US intervention. Doing so risks regional war.

In late February, Israel bombed Hezbollah targets. It did so along Lebanon’s border with Syria.

Hezbollah vowed to respond “at the appropriate time.” It justifiably denounced “blatant” Israeli “aggression.”

Washington and Israel partner in regional adventurism. Do Obama and Netanyahu want war on Lebanon? Are they planning regional conflict?

Will Iran be targeted? Will US-orchestrated Venezuelan violence continue? Will other nations be targeted for regime change?


The damn fool in the White House risks global war. Ukraine is a major flashpoint. Conditions today are the most dangerous since the 1962 missiles of October crisis.

Jack Kennedy was president. Early in his administration he changed from cold warrior to peacemaker.

He wanted all nuclear weapons abolished. He favored “general and complete disarmament.” He wanted all US forces out of Vietnam by December 1965.

He wanted to “splinter the CIA in a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.”

After resolving the 1962 crisis, he said he “never had the slightest intention” of confronting Cuba or Soviet Russia aggressively.

The damn fool in the White House is no Jack Kennedy. Neocons infest his administration. Rogue elements make policy.

Ousted Ukraine President Yanukovich Has Asked Putin To Use Military Force In Ukraine

We were perhaps even more amused than our readers by our Friday headline “Stocks Close At New Record High On Russian Invasion, GDP Decline And Pending Home Sales Miss.” It appears that today the market forgot to take its lithium, and is finally focusing on the Ukraine part of the headline, at least until 3:30 pm again when everything should once again be back to market ramp normal. As expected, the PMI data from China and Europe in February, was promptly ignored and it was all about Ukraine again, where Russia sternly refuses to yield to Western demands, forcing the shocked market to retreat lower, and sending Russian stocks lower by over 11%. This is happening even as Ukraine is sending Russian gas to European consumers as normal, gas transport monopoly Ukrtransgas said on Monday. “Ukrtransgas is carrying out all its obligations, fulfilling all agreements with Gazprom. The transit (via Ukraine to Europe) totalled 200 million cubic meters as of March 1,” Ukrtransgas spokesman Maksim Belyavsky said. In other words, it can easily get worse should Russia indeed use its trump card.

IMF Gets A Warm Welcome In Spain

Despite near record low bond yields, a surging stock market and a leadership proclaiming victory, the people of Spain appear upset at the IMF’s appearance in their nation. Around 2,000 people protested in Bilbao today as the IMF (member of the infamous Troika) overturning cars and windows, graffiti-ing “IMF Out!” and held banners saying “Troika Go Home”, denouncing economic policies that welcome austerity measures and the introduction of cuts.

Fibonacci alignments of the Azores Pyramid & submerged city of Poseida

An impressive new discovery in the Azores Islands occurred in early May 2013, and was announced to worldwide media coverage on September 19th. This unusual discovery took place by sheer accident. When local yachtsman Diocleciano Silva was deep-sea fishing between São Miguel and Terceira Islands he noticed a perfectly geometric formation on his high-accuracy depth-finder device. Silva’s video of the odd sonar data reveals a large pyramid with 4 perfectly flat faces like those of the Great Pyramid.

Why has the global media machine repeatedly published this erroneous information on the exact height of this submerged pyramid, contradicting the obvious evidence presented?

Obfuscation of the actual height of the sunken Azores Pyramid is designed to hide its close relationship and psychoacoustic calibration to the Great Pyramid of Giza, Egypt. Near 74m in height, the Azores Pyramid is exactly half the original height of the Great Pyramid, at 148m. In addition, the Azores Pyramid is the same height as the Teotihuacan Pyramid in present-day Mexico,and also appears to closely match the height of the newly discovered Hummingbird Pyramid in La Maná, Ecuador!

`And at last he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son;

38 and the husbandmen having seen the son, said among themselves, This is the heir, come, we may kill him, and may possess his inheritance;

39 and having taken him, they cast [him] out of the vineyard, and killed him;

40 whenever therefore the lord of the vineyard may come, what will he do to these husbandmen?’

41 They say to him, `Evil men — he will evilly destroy them, and the vineyard will give out to other husbandmen, who will give back to him the fruits in their seasons.’

Matthew 21 – Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King 

 Jesus saith to them, `Did ye never read in the Writings, A stone that the builders disallowed, it became head of a corner; from the Lord hath this come to pass, and it is wonderful in our eyes.

43 `Because of this I say to you, that the reign of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth its fruit;

44 and he who is falling on this stone shall be broken, and on whomsoever it may fall it will crush him to pieces.’

45 And the chief priests and the Pharisees having heard his similes, knew that of them he speaketh,

46 and seeking to lay hold on him, they feared the multitudes, seeing they were holding him as a prophet.

Gold Tops $1,350; Surges To 4-Month Highs

Military service is compulsory in Israel, with men serving three years and women two. Ultra-Orthodox Jews make up roughly 10 percent of the country’s population of just over eight million.


In fact, in 1948, it took President Truman only 11 minutes to recognize the Jewish state of Israel.  And from then on, the American-Israel relationship has not been a Democratic cause or a Republican cause, it has been an American cause.


In its attempt to reflate asset prices at all costs, and succeeding with both the stock market and new housing bubble if not so much wages and the broad economy, the Fed has made housing unaffordable for the vast majority of the population (confirmed further by the plunge to 15 year lows in mortgage applications), forcing Americans to scramble for rental housing, sending rents to all time highs. This can be is seen in the OER. The problem is that with so much of monthly discretionary spending going to rental, it means there is far less in free cash flow available to be used for other purchases. Which also means that inflation away from rents is declining and getting lower with every month almost as a result of the surge in rents! 

Continuing with Paradox 101: if indeed the Fed wants to stimulate broad inflation and boost the economy with a stable and achievable 2% inflationary target, it should pop the housing and rental bubbles, and send prices for this component of the CPI basket plunging, affording consumers more discretionary cash flow for other purchases.

The Biggest Component Of CPI – Rent – Is Now The Highest Since 2008: What Does This Mean For Broad Inflation?

Sadly, the Fed, comprised of clueless economist PhD hacks, will never figure this out, and instead will ponder and wonder how it is possible that month after month even more broad deflation appears to be setting in. Of course, it only needs to look at the culprit – every period the incremental inflation is being eaten up by the monthly rental paycheck. Sadly, it won’t, and certainly not before it is too late, and this too housing bubble bursts uncontrollably. By then, then there will be bigger fish to fry, than wondering where all the inflation has gone.

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the White House tomorrow, President Barack Obama will tell him that his country could face a bleak future — one of international isolation and demographic disaster — if he refuses to endorse a U.S.-drafted framework agreement for peace with the Palestinians. Obama will warn Netanyahu that time is running out for Israel as a Jewish-majority democracy. And the president will make the case that Netanyahu, alone among Israelis, has the strength and political credibility to lead his people away from the precipice.


President Barack Obama’s meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House today marks the first steps by the U.S. leader to insert himself more directly into Middle East peace talks as another deadline approaches.

FED: “We have no authority to regulate Bitcoin”

Doctors at least have the Hippocratic Oath: first, do no harm. If only economists and central bankers had a similar ethic.

But they don’t. So they continue ‘making it up as they go along’, as Mr. White suggests, applying failed ideas with impunity and continued authority to an unquestioning public.

BRUSSELS – Russia’s seizure of Crimea is the most naked example of peacetime aggression that Europe has witnessed since Nazi Germany invaded the Sudetenland in 1938. It may be fashionable to belittle the “lessons of Munich,” when Neville Chamberlain and Édouard Daladier appeased Hitler, deferring to his claims on Czechoslovakia. But if the West acquiesces to Crimea’s annexation – the second time Russian President Vladimir Putin has stolen territory from a sovereign state, following Russia’s seizure of Georgia’s Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions in 2008 – today’s democratic leaders will surely regret their inaction.

Putin’s Kampf

Which sanctions might work? First, Turkey should close the Dardanelles to Russian shipping, as it did after the 2008 Russo-Georgian War. Back then, Turkey closed access to the Black Sea to prevent the US from intervening, though the US, it is now clear, had no intention of doing so. Today, it should close the Turkish straits not only to Russian warships, but to all commercial vessels bound for Russia’s Black Sea ports. The impact on Russia’s economy – and on Putin’s military pretensions – would be considerable.

The US takes action against Moscow – as Russia denies its forces have given the Ukrainian navy a 3am deadline to surrender.


Wait, so the US Department of Defense, that of the United States if it was somehow unclear, suddenly has authority to control the troops… of Russia?

One wonders: did the US Department of Education tell Gazprom to maintain gas supplies to Germany no matter how many CIA agents are operating in Kiev?

Or did ACORN tell whoever is the current pre-countercoup Ukraine president to hike minimum wages?

Or maybe the Department of Justice is quietly trying to collect its Fedex guns sent “erroneously” to Ukraine mercenaries, having confused them with Mexican drug lords?

Whatever the confusion, we are confident that following this latest “escalation” in the US response narrative, that Russia will promptly CTRL-Z everything it has done in the Ukraine in the past two weeks, and say it was only kidding.

As Russian Troops In The Ukraine Hit 16,000, US Department Of Defense Orders Them To Go Home

The American press portrays Putin as being the bad guy and the aggressor in the Ukraine crisis.

Putin is certainly no saint. A former KGB agent, Putin’s net worth is estimated at some $40 billion dollars … as he has squeezed money out of the Russian economy by treating the country as his own personal fiefdom. And all sides appear to have dirt on their hands in the Russia-Ukraine crisis.

But we can only see the bigger picture if we take a step back and gain a little understanding of the history underlying the current tensions.

The Backstory to the Russia-Ukraine Confrontation: The U.S. and NATO Encirclement of Russia

Indeed, the fact that the U.S. has allegedly paid billions of dollars to anti-Russian forces in Ukraine – and even purportedly picked the Ukrainian president – has to be seen in context.

Again, we don’t believe that there are angels on any side.  But we do believe that everyone has to take a step back, look at the bigger picture, calm down and reach a negotiated diplomatic resolution.

 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
