31014 Gleaning Black Hole 666 Theme Park Earth And The Blood Moons

President Obama and US Secretary of State John Kerry have set a deadline of April 29, 2014, to reach a peace agreement between Palestinians and Israelis. The two sides are negotiating in secret on a daily basis. If the stated goal is achieved, the final seven years to Armageddon and the second coming of Jesus to the earth will begin very soon!

http://www.endtime.com/plan-for-the-final-7-years/

I cannot say for sure that the final seven years will begin on April 29, 2014, but I can say with absolute certainty that an agreement will soon be signed, which will begin the final seven years. The only question is: Will it happen on April 29th?

The Whole World Has Gone Into Debt

Bloomberg reports:

The amount of debt globally has soared more than 40 percent to $100 trillion since the first signs of the financial crisis as governments borrowed to pull their economies out of recession and companies took advantage of record low interest rates, according to the Bank for International Settlements.

Has all that money gone to stimulate the economy?

Nope …

Virtually none of it has.  Instead, governments chose big banks over their own people.  The huge amount of debt was racked up to bail out the big banks.

Central banks have been engaged in the the “greatest backdoor bailout of all time.”

Global Debt Exceeds $100 Trillion

And yet – as Bloomberg notes – everyone else gets austerity:

Concerned that high debt loads would cause international investors to avoid their markets, many nations resorted to austerity measures of reduced spending and increased taxes, reining in their economies in the process as they tried to restore the fiscal order they abandoned to fight the worldwide recession.

In essence, the elite financial players are manipulating the game so that they get the stimulus … and the little guy gets the austerity.

As we have highlighted, British authorities have cited the need to combat radical political beliefs as a justification for invasive and chilling state interference in the private lives of citizens.

Last week, the Mayor of London Boris Johnson said that parents who teach their children to be “full of hate” should be targeted by social services, with Johnson suggesting that children whose parents are supporters of the British National Party, a right-wing organization that vehemently opposes immigration, may be taken into care in “extreme” circumstances.

However, children are already being taken from parents in much less “extreme” circumstances, such as in the case of a couple who had their foster children removed by the state because they were members of the UK Independence Party, the third largest political party in Britain.

Meanwhile, Scotland recently passed a law that designates a state minder to every child in the country up to the age of 18, a move described by the Christian Institute as a, “dreadful extension of the state’s tentacles into family life.”

Doctors Forced to Become State Snitches to Spot “Radical” Patients

Gus Hosein, executive director of Privacy International in London, says the incident shows how the push for enhanced passport data hasn’t paid off. “It’s not just that the trade-off wasn’t worth it—the proponents of this policy were short-sighted and wanted to play with new technologies while building national biometric databases,” says Hosein, whose group advocates against government intrusions into private life, including the broadening use of biometrics such as iris scans and other measurements of peoples’ features.

Since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, governments have presented citizens with a trade-off they couldn’t refuse: Surrender your data and dignity in exchange for some security. The arrangement has ranged from phone surveillance to airport shoe removal. And at every turn, privacy advocates have raised the alarm that individuals are getting the raw end of the deal.

Now the disappearance of a Malaysian airliner over the South China Sea is giving privacy defenders an I-told-you-so moment. Two passengers used stolen European passports, at least one of which was equipped with biometric features, which can include electronically stored fingerprints and facial images, Bloomberg News reported. When immigration officials access the data, they can determine if travelers really are who they purport to be.

A Deal with the Right Devil

The arrangement, according to the defense, gave the cartel’s leaders immunity and free rein “to continue their narcotics trafficking business in the United States and Mexico without interference.” Other evidence reported by WhoWhatWhy and Narco News lends credence to the possibility that such a deal was in fact reached

It’s finally happening. Several weeks ago, Georgia’s House voted for a resolution to bring about a “Convention of the States” to stop Obama and end the growth of federal tyranny. Now, the state has officially demanded that it does happen. This is the first official demand in American history.

However one glance at the chart of Turkish bonds and it’s clear the selling began amid Taper fears last summer and was merely exacerbated by corruption concerns and EM crisis flows (and who would lock in rates for an allegedly corrupt government)

However, back in the early 1970s, the whole operation developed a kink. One man, a crook, a president, a liar, an insecure parody of a head of state, Richard Nixon, went off script. He REALLY went off script.

http://thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/03/09/nixon-rockefeller-ig-farben-and-global-control/

After the whole scandal had been exposed and Nixon had flown away, in disgrace, from the White House for the last time, Rockefeller addressed a meeting of the Chamber of Commerce of the European Community (October, 1975). He was there to allay their fears about Nixon’s betrayal of the new economic world order. There was really very little he needed to say. David had already created (1973) the free-trade Trilateral Commission. And a new puppet, Gerald Ford was in the White House, and Ford had appointed David’s brother, Nelson Rockefeller, as his vice president.

David told the European attendees, “Fortunately, there are no signs that these anti-[free] trade measures [of Nixon] are supported by the [Ford] Administration.”

And that was that. The global mega-corporate colossus was back on track.

Everyone Agrees that Ukraine Sniper Attacks Were a False Flag … They Only Argue About WHO Is the Culprit

Mr Demetriades, named by Mr Anastasiades’ communist predecessor Demetris Christofias, came under criticism for his handling of a €10bn international bailout last year to rescue the island’s banking system from collapse.

We hope, for their sake, they weren’t also just “liberated” of all their gold, which after a brief stay 80 feet below the surface at 33 Liberty, will promptly find its way either to the Bundesbank, or to the billionaire oligarchs, based either in London or elsewhere, and currently in charge of “post-liberation” Ukraine.

Finally, putting this into perspective, 40 tons of gold is roughly what China imports every ten days.

Israel says long-range rockets aboard ‘Iran arms ship’

During the press conference, the prime minister lashed out at what he saw as the world’s hypocritical nature: “The international community wants to ignore Iran’s continued aggression and the part it plays in the execution of the massacre in Syria. They want to delude themselves that Iran has abandoned its intention to obtain nuclear weapons.”

 Netanyahu: Like Iran hid arms, it’s hiding nuclear ambitions

He slammed “the dangerous Saudi stance” of supporting “terrorism in the world — it supports it in Syria and Iraq and Lebanon and Egypt and Libya and even in countries outside” the Arab world.

Now comes further confirmation of that strange alliance, from Richard Silverstein’s excellent blog Tikun Olam. Silverstein gets many of his scoops from Israeli reporters, often confiding information they’re not allowed to report in Israel. Silverstein also closely monitors the Israeli media.

He has been following the close cooperation between Israel and Saudi Arabia in targeting Syria and Iran. In his latest log he reports,

“Nethanyahu,” wrote the Israeli reporter, “referred almost certainly to Saudi Arabia which finances the expenses of the enormous campaign which we are conducting against Iran.”

“The question” Silverstein writes in his blog, “is how far is Saudi Arabia willing to go. If Bibi ever decided to launch an attack, would the Sunni nation fund that as well? The answer seems clearly to be yes.

Cyber Experts: Israel Under Attack

According to various cyber security experts Israel is about to face two organized, large scale cyber attacks in the following weeks, on March 10 and April 7. Experts explain the attacks are a part of the “hacktivists month.”

Muslims See Temple Mount As Ultimate Red Line (No Wonder It Will Be So Central To The Antichrist’s Peace Covenant!)

What does all this have to do with the future and the timespan 2012–2018? From the Books of Revelation and Joel (2:31), we understand that the sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord. In Exodus (chapter 12), God told Moses that Passover (roughly March-April in the Gregorian calendar—the very time frame I am writing this letter) would be the point at which the religious year would begin. It just so happens that after the two blood moons on Passover and Tabernacles in 2014, this Jewish New Year in 2015 will be met with a total solar eclipse. Two weeks later on Passover we have the next total lunar eclipse. Then on the Feast of Trumpets, also known as Rosh HaShana, there is a partial solar eclipse followed two weeks later by the next total lunar eclipse on the Feast of Tabernacles. There will not be another such tetrad of four blood moons landing on biblical holidays this century. Keep your eyes on global events as these blood moons may well mark God’s prophetic calendar with apocalyptic scenarios falling like dominoes across the world scene in anticipation of the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Third Temple Connected To Coming Blood Moons? Authors’ Spectacular Foresights Convey Temple Mount Tensions, Coming Tetrads On Jewish Feast Days As Pointing To A Final End-Times Countdown

“Something is in the wind,” they say, pointing to such developments as the recent call by Jewish leaders (even in the Knesset, the legislative branch of the Israeli government) to build the Third Temple in Jerusalem; a simultaneous effort by the United States to push Israel into a peace agreement this year; political and religious leaders advocating for a single global, financial, and political authority; and even what now appears to be intentional movement by global powers that could initiate the battle of Armageddon. Please understand that within the degrading relationship and saber rattling between the United States, Russia, the European Union, and China exist the very components necessary for the final global conflict, called in Ezekiel 38 “the battle of Gog and Magog.” Ezekiel foresaw this supernatural contest occurring in the latter times after Israel would be “gathered out of many people and nations” and recognized as a nation once again. During that generation in which Israel is so reunified—which was accomplished in 1948—the Battle of Gog and Magog occurs. But if a biblical generation is approximately seventy years (see Psalms 90:10, Daniel 9) and if seven years is also needed for a coming “Peace” plan (called a “covenant” in the book of Daniel) to be enforced upon Israel, counting forward from 1948 seems to indicate these decisive events leading to the Great Tribulation and “battle of Armageddon” have already started their countdown. Ezekiel even tells us who the instigators of the battle will be—Iran (Persia), which becomes the number-one confederate with Russia (Gog) in this invasion of Israel:

It’s been over five years since the collapse of iconic Wall Street firms such as Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers; the insolvency and bailout of AIG and Citigroup; the receivership of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; the shotgun marriage of Bank of America and Merrill Lynch. After a 5-year delay, the Federal Reserve has released the full transcripts of its meetings in 2007 and 2008 – the two key years of the crisis. But for unexplained reasons, the Fed Chairman, Ben Bernanke continues to redact 84 meetings from his appointment calendar that occurred between January 1, 2007 and the pivotal collapse of Bear Stearns on the weekend of March 15-16, 2008.

We’re going to theorize that this meeting might have had something to do with shorting, and potentially naked shorting in the futures market. But Bernanke did not, according to the record, take any of his Fed experts with him. His calendar shows that he went alone to the CFTC offices at Three Lafayette Center in Washington, D.C.

This meeting was followed by a secret meeting from 5 to 6 p.m. in Bernanke’s office with unnamed parties. Beginning at 7:15 p.m. that evening, Bernanke held a 90-minute videoconference with unnamed parties.

The next day, Tuesday, March 11, Bernanke traveled to New York to meet with an interesting assortment of Wall Street CEOs and hedge fund honchos in the dining room at the New York Fed. Robert Rubin of Citigroup was there as was Lloyd Blankfein of Goldman Sachs, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan, John Thain of Merrill Lynch and James Gorman of Morgan Stanley. Staff of the New York Fed attended, including Tim Geithner. Noticeably absent from the confab was any representative from Bear Stearns.

By Thursday, March 13, as a full blown run on the liquidity of Bear Stearns took place, there is a 6 inch long black box redaction of everyone the Fed Chairman spoke to or met with from 4:30 p.m. that day.

Fed Chair Bernanke Held 84 Secret Meetings in the Lead Up to the Wall Street Collapse

You really can’t make this stuff up:

  • EVANS: FED NEEDS TO BE CLEAR RATES WILL BE LOW FOR LONG TIME (ok)
  • EVANS SAYS ‘WE NEED TO LET THE MARKET WORK’ (umm, well…)
  • EVANS SAYS FED WANTS TO SEE LOWER LONG-TERM INTEREST RATES (but… you just said)
  • EVANS:HIGHER LONG-TERM RATES FOR RIGHT REASON IN ‘OUR’ INTEREST (wait, what?)

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-03-10/feds-chuck-evans-loses-it

Did Charlie blow a fuse? Because he just said that the Fed will hold rates low, wants long-term rates low, but also wants to let the markets work, and wants inflation to raise long-term rates… Forward-guidance just lost another few points of credibility.

Some questions here:

  1. Who is “our“?
  2. If higher rates are in our interest, then why is the Fed holding rates low and “wanting see long-term rates low”?
  3. If we need to let the market work then why is the Fed still buying well over 100% of MBS issuance and virtually all TSY long duration issuance as well as supporting equity valuations?

Many times in the midst of a global crisis, it is easy to lose sight of what is important, take our eyes off of the ball and ignore what is truly important. In an ongoing effort to make sense out of the world we live in, there is one undeniable truth, the Rothschild/Rockefeller banking empire is the prime motivating force behind the systematic destruction of the old world and the roll out of the New World Order. Subsequently, it is important to establish what complete control the banksters have in moving the world towards total subjugation.

The primary weapon of mass manipulation is the planet’s central banking system which is headquartered in Basel. If a nation and its leaders do not follow the script, they tend to have a very short life span. Let’s take the assassination of the Polish government and military as a case in point.

‘I’ll hang you by the balls and have you f***ed’ – Ukrainian presidential hopeful abducts pro-Russian MP

The United States is sending a dozen F-16 fighter jets to Poland as a part of a training exercise, amid continuing tensions between Ukraine and Russia, the Polish defence ministry said on Sunday.

Several, maybe even a few dozen ‘Igla’ man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS) were stolen from Ukraine’s military depots during the incidents in this country, a senior Ukrainian military man told RIA Novosti.

Igla‘ missile systems stolen from Ukraine’s military depots ..

So, to summarize: 3 days ago a Malaysian Airlines jet disappears suddenly leaving no wreckage… the passenger manifest included 2 Ukrainians… and 2 Iranians who were traveling on stolen passports bought for them in cash by a mysterious Iranian known as “Mr.Ali”… who hoped to emigrate to Europe (by way of Kuala Lumpur and Beijing)…

The Iranian “Stolen Passport” Passenger Plot Thickens

While the mystery builds over the still officially unexplained disappearance of Malaysian flight MH370, or just who the two passengers with “stolen” passports may have been although we expect a revelation on this issue shortly, the FT has added yet another twist to what is sure to be a conspiracy thriller for weeks to come: the paper reports that the Thai travel agent who booked the tickets for the men in question said that she had been asked to arrange the travel by an Iranian contact. Adding to the confusion is the revelation that originally the mysterious Iranian, known only as Mr. Ali, tried to reserve seats for the two men on separate flights not to China, but to Europe, one on a Qatar Airways flight, and the other on Etihad. And the punchline: a “friend” of Mr. Ali’s paid for the tickets in cash.

The story as explained by the Financial Times:

Two Ukrainians?

So one mysterious accident, which by now appears to almost certainly be a midair “disintegration” that has loose ends linking both Iran and Ukraine? A very unfortunate set of completely unrelated coincidences, or something far more sinister? We expect the full “story”, massaged as it may ultimately be, to be revealed in the coming hours.

Mysterious Iranian “Mr. Ali” Purchased Tickets For “Stolen Passport” Passengers; Paid Cash

Chipmaker Freescale Semiconductor has issued a statement reporting that, tragically, 20 of its employees were aboard Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which appears to have crashed into the South China Sea.

20 Freescale staff on vanished Malaysia Airlines flight MH370

Just eight days after a terrorist attack in the city of Kunming dubbed “China’s September 11th,” a Malaysia Airlines flight carrying mostly Chinese passengers disappeared over the South China Sea.

former CIA Director David Petraeus warned of a “nightmare” scenario in which the proliferation of missiles could provide terrorists the ability to shoot down passenger airplanes.

The largest terrorist looting of Man-Portable-Air-Defense-Systems, or MANPADS reportedly took place immediately after the U.S.-NATO military campaign that helped to end Moammar Gadhafi’s rule in Libya.

Gadhafi had hoarded Africa’s biggest known reserve of MANPADS, with his stock said to number between 15,000 and 20,000. Many of the missiles were stolen by militias fighting in Libya, including those backed by the U.S. their anti-Gadhafi efforts.

Last week there were unverified claims some MANPADS went missing in Ukraine.

Missile Downed Malaysia Airlines Jet? Follows Near Miss by North Korean Rocket Last Week

America is busy fighting in Afghanistan and occupying Iraq. Crimea, a part of Ukraine, has been illegally seized by Russia. Obama has tried to engage Syria and Iran in a war in order to preserve the Petrodollar, but was outmaneuvered by Putin. To the average sheeple, the world is just one nasty conflict after another. To the rare American who has any knowledge of current events and can read a map, everything that is happening makes perfect sense.

The Grand Chessboard of WWIII (Part Two)

Yes: the nosebleeds and the lack of alertness too are not due to the radiation, but all entirely due to being kept away from it. We suppose the proper advice here is: to avoid sudden nosebleeds, short tempers, and falling strength, let you children run like the wind, if possible into the Third reactor’s cooling tanks.

One really can’t make this pathetic, deadly BS up.

So keeping in the theme of this lunacy, and coming soon to a Orwellian banana dictatorship near you: the poor will be taxed more, because it is their fault they did not invest the money they don’t have, in Glorious Bernank’s attempt to make everything better for everyone. Remember: the Chairsatan was just paid in one hour more than in one full year at the Fed to reveal that “his natural inclination would be to try to help the average person.”

I wonder if this is what it feels like to go crazy. Not a little zany, not idiosyncratic, but utterly, looney bin nuts. Recently, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Moniz announced that our government has approved a $6.5 billion loan to Southern Co. to build two new nuclear reactors at the Alvin W. Vogtle Electric Generating nuclear site in Georgia. Yes, new nuclear – on our own soil.

Two months ago we noted the clashes between the Libyan government and the rebels over selling oil. It appears the rising threats are reaching a crescendo as AABAA reports the Libyan Navy has impounded a North Korean oil tanker trying to export oil from a rebel-held port of Es-Sider, and is on its way to Western Libya. Interestingly this comes just a day after the US issued a statement strongly condemning “illicitly obtained oil from Libya.” We suspect Kim will not be a happy tyrant this evening and also note that the rebels deny the vessel is under government control.

Will this be anything like that?  I’m leaning toward more of a split system, where the northern half of the energy is split from the southern surface low.  This split in the two surface lows swings the southern surface low out to sea … making the scenario not happen as the EURO shows.  I’m not going to go with a March 1993 superstorm solution right now.  I will wait a few days to make the decision on updating the forecast, but for now I’m going with an out to sea scenario on a weaker system around Wednesday of this next week …
