Last week BTFD failed for the Nasdaq and that class of talking-heads that we like to call asset-gatherers promulgated that there was no need to worry… this is a small segment of the market dragging down a high-beta index, rotate to bigger caps. The S&P has not failed the BTFD brigade since QE4EVA began… until today. For the first time, the S&P 500 cash index was unable to make a new high after bouncing off the 50DMA (in fact making a new cycle low)… now what?
“I think it’s very likely that we’re seeing, in the next 12 months, an ’87-type of crash,” warns a somewhat excited sounding Marc Faber, adding that he thinks “it will be worse.”
At a House Judiciary Committee hearing today, Attorney General Eric Holder confirmed that The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) was in the process of building a fleet of domestic drones.
In sworn testimony, Holder confirmed that the ATF has already spent over $600,000 on the program, and is in the process of trying to bring the drones into their surveillance arsenal.
LANSING, Mich. (AP) BioPort Corp., the nation’s only manufacturer of an anthrax vaccine, confirmed Thursday that information on the company was found in an office in Afghanistan used by two retired nuclear scientists from Pakistan..
So from MF Global’s “vaporized” commingled client assets to Basel’s “evaporated” toughened derivatives rules, the banks are indeed “very happy.”
And now back to perpetuation the illusion that the system is stable.
America does have the capacity to resist tyranny with some degree of success as our people have more resources than any other guerrilla force in world history. America has successful military experience in its ranks in sufficient numbers to make a lot of difference. However, the key to saving America is twofold: (1) America would have to abandon its “soft” mentality; and, (2) the 10% that are awake would have arouse the majority in the time we have left. The guerrilla suppressing technology is so thorough and so completely devastating, that if the globalists are allowed to bring this technology to fruition in sufficient numbers, the game is over and the fate of humanity is sealed. For America falls to the globalists, then humanity will follow. Do I think that these two challenges can mitigated? Yes, I do. Do I think we in the alternative media will arouse a sufficient number of people to make a difference?
The odds are far less than 50%. If you share the same world-view as I do that the alternative media may not be successful in arousing America before it is too late, then you need to ask yourself what are you doing to prepare to survive in the NWO?.
2014 is shaping up as a year of reckoning for the United States.All evidence points to US economic failure in 2014, and that is the conclusion of John Williams’ April 9 report.
One of two things is likely: Either the US dollar will be abandoned and collapse in value, thus ending Washington’s superpower status and Washington’s threat to world peace, or Washington will lead its puppets into military conflict with Russia and China. The outcome of such a war would be far more devastating than the collapse of the US dollar.
Imagine a world where drones never have to touch the ground after takeoff. That’s what MIT PhD. candidate Joseph Moore did, and now he’s on the cusp of creating a drone that can “perch” on power lines just like birds to recharge its batteries.
“They are slaughtering us like chickens,” said one Christian. “We have had enough of Seleka killing, raping and stealing,” said another. He added that he was not sure if he could ever go back and live among Muslims. “We are angry,” he said. “The Muslims should go back where they came from.”
“This would have been a very painful position and one which would have created difficulty breathing,” Borrini said.
The validity of the Shroud of Turin has long been disputed, with some arguing that the linen is in fact Jesus’ burial cloth, and others arguing that the piece of fabric is a master forgery from the Medieval Times. As Borrini indicates, medieval torture often included hanging a victim with their arms above their head using rope. However, he did add that if the shroud is a forgery, it is expertly done since the blood stains line up as accurately as if they were produced from an actual crucifixion.
A NASA camera on Mars has captured what appears to be artificial light emanating outward from the planet’s surface.
Photos taken April 2 and April 3 by a camera on the Curiosity rover were beamed millions of miles from Mars to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.
#24 The marriage rate in the United States has fallen to an all-time low. Right now it is sitting at a yearly rate of 6.8 marriages per 1000 people.
#61 According to a study conducted by the Mayo Clinic, nearly 70 percent of all Americans are on at least one prescription drug. An astounding 20 percent of all Americans are on at least five prescription drugs.
#96 According to the American Religious Identification Survey, only 76 percent of all Americans identified themselves as “Christian” of one type or another in 2008. Back in 1990, 86 percent of all Americans identified themselves as “Christian” of one type or another.
#97 A study conducted by the Barna Group discovered that nearly 60 percent of all Christians from 15 years of age to 29 years of age are no longer actively involved in any church.
#98 It is being projected that the percentage of Americans attending church in 2050 will be about half of what it is today.
#99 One survey conducted a while back found that 52 percent of all American Christians believe that “at least some non-Christian faiths can lead to eternal life”.
#100 According to LifeWay Research, 46 percent of all Americans never even think about whether they will go to heaven or not.

Yesterday’s “best day in a year” was the ultimate Fed cat bounce as Nadaq Biotech stocks are collapsing today – approaching the crucial 20% bear market drop. With a loss of over 5.5%, this is the biggest drop since August 2011 and has the index very close to the critical 200-day moving-average support. The Biotechs are now down 2% year-to-date at new 4-month lows..
“Said it proudly! Want to decimate the tea party, the NRA, bible thumpers, and Fox News zombies? Vote for me,” he tweeted.
According to Dictionary.com, the word “decimate” means to “destroy a great number or proportion of.” It can also mean “to select by lot and kill every tenth person of.”
In short, Dickinson expressed a desire to kill one-tenth of those who supports the NRA, the Tea Party, and Christians, a group he regularly denigrates as “bible thumpers.”
But Dickinson wasn’t finished.
After claiming the Tea Party is the modern KKK, he called for the small-government, pro-Constitution movement to be eradicated.
“Lady liberty has a cancerous tumor called the tea party. Time to eradicate it,” he said..
Under the banner of the so-called ‘war on terror’, this particular U.S. war crime relies on the executive branch as a ‘suspected’ citizen’s accuser, judge, jury and executioner. The public is to understand that there would be no opportunity for this undesirable citizen to realize he is targeted, know what he is accused of or confront his accusers. That unruly person has somehow already sealed his fate according to Obama’s executive star chamber. Eric Holder serves as an accessory to this crime by actively misleading the public as to the legality of such extrajudicial executions and pushing public acceptance of a government without a constitution. Clouding the appearance of these types of crimes, Holder cries “extraordinary circumstance” and ironically refers to the two most preventable of extraordinary circumstances – 9/11 and Pearl Harbor. See how he pretends to be obtuse about the U.S. Constitution under a gentle inquiry:
The US government is using the Malaysian Airlines flight 370 to tackle the “widespread lack of passport screening in all countries.” The US is stepping up their processes. Already each passport of incoming visitors to the US is screened through multiple databases. After flight 370 disappeared, the US has started this process for all outgoing passengers.
“When we found out about the mistake, we knew we needed to repay the IRS and had been working with the court to do it,” Charles said. “Based on an agreement, we had paid $5,000 a month for 2 1/2 years and had paid $226,000 in all, almost the total amount we originally owed the IRS.” The Barretts were also filing reports every six weeks with the court, providing documents as requested.
Once in court, Charles did not see the judge who had handled his case but another. It turns out the court had issed a writ of Ne Exeat Republica, ordering the Barretts to turn over their passports. The writ of Ne Exeat Republic is a virtually unknown judicial tool dating to the 18th century English royal court. Its original intention was to restrict travel for political reasons and is occasionally used in the US. It is almost always issued as a civil law action.
The IRS attorney insisted that Barrett go to jail or post bond of $253,000. The judge informed the attorney the writ did not authorize jailing, only the confiscation of passports and other travel documents. The IRS attorney insisted, and ultimately the judged relented. Charles was booked into jail, though no charges were filed.
Kathleen, who was leaving from Grand Junction, 200 miles west of Denver, was experiencing the same abuse. She was also booked into jail. It was two days before anyone knew where she was.
Kathleen and Charles saw each other for the first time in five days on Tuesday August, 13, at a hearing at the federal courthouse in Denver. Their new attorney demanded they be released. Judge Boland agreed, but the marshals refused to obey the judges orders based on the instructions of their superiors. Ultimately, the judge demanded the handcuffs and shackles be removed and they finally were.
Nearly eight months later, the Barretts are still unable to leave the US. Charles has lost the source of income that allowed him to make payments to the IRS.
The Barrett’s lawyers are arguing that the IRS has repeatedly misrepresented the facts and has perjured herself on numerous occassions. Since, Judge Boland has been removed from the case. In fact, the Barretts have dealt with three different judges during the process.
The Barretts remain in Colorado, living with Kathleen’s mother.
“We just want the nightmare to end,” says Charles.
Wouldn’t it be ”ironic” if a Saint walked around the Washington Monument and prayed, then declared an earthquake should shut it down before the April 8th 2011 debt ceiling earthquake preCURSor happened five miles from the Virginia nuclear power plant post Fukushima at the start of the solar galactic dark rift …after Obozo and the Corrupt Legislators that gave the usual suspect bankers 700 billion Sirius fiat debt notes worth of Vote 2 Party Dial 666-ADD-Debt bonus painted by Bad Boys Broncos H O’Bomb Buccaneers whom pirated tax payers (at the point of an IRS gun) they just finished ripping off with their Neo Fascist Secular Order global fraud ”after” they caused the” S&P 666 bottom”?
That would be like lightening striking the Vatican twice after Petrus Romanus was confirmed with comets followed later on by an asteroid blowing up in Russia etc… err something.
It appears yesterday’s “Fed Cat Bounce” was exactly that. While the momos are making headlines, selling pressure is broad-based now and the S&P has just joined the Russell, Nasdaq, and Dow in the red year-to-date… “Growth” stocks are at the lows of the year relative to “Value”.
How Ironic? April 8, 2011, the 666 Obelisk Second Of Sirius Symbol: behind POTUS Apollyon Risen 2012 standing in the ”Blue Room/3rd Degree Master Mason Color, at 00:00 hrs, at 0%, at 100% debt to GDP, 3 years to the day, April 8, 2014, Mars Earth and the Sun line up, just after the POTUS declares he’s concerned about Manhattan getting nuked and then the occultation of Regulus in Leo happened because of an asteroid event that could only be seen directly over Ground Zero. Add that to the fact that the CEO of Carlyle Group tied to the usual 911 suspects and Skull ad Bones Bush, paid to repair the largest Egyptian obelisk ever erected on Earth, after, eh hum, an earthquake shut down the 666 Antichrist Second of Sirius July 4th ”point within the circle” corner stone of the builders whom reject the eternal measure of mercy defined by our Father in Christ.
Siriusly, who on Earth, but a willful blind moron, doesn’t know by now everything about the evil bastards at this point? …or what a leaping frog looks like in a duck caught in a noose around Malvo’s neck tied to a Home Depot Shopper? If you are reading this you certainly know, even if you don’t know how to catch a leaping lizard lipped lost host in action. Yeah, caught your dark lady handler driving away in the black SUV, a witness confirmed it while in line at the same DMV that issued licenses to Flight 911 MIHOP LIHOP’ers. It seems the smoker took their break outside work at HD. Oops, that black cat is out of the bag, eh hum, open and shut case closed. FBI computer analyst must have known too much to live.
Spielberg was among the president’s top donors in 2012, donating $1 million to Priorities USA, the super-PAC backing the president’s re-election.
DHS conducted the study after the spring 2013 nuclear crisis with North Korea in which the communist government’s leadership threatened a “preemptive” nuclear strike on the U.S. and then released videos depicting a nuclear attack on Washington.
You’d think a guy like Rogers who aggressively lobs untrue accusations against a journalist trying to inform the American public about government criminality would have a squeaky clean background himself. After all, he was a former FBI agent. You’d think that, but you’d be wrong.
Incredibly, Dick Morris points out that until recently Mike Rogers’ wife was the president and the CEO of the company that was contracted by the State Department to provide intelligence-based and physical security services.
While this sort of crony capitalism is seen as “business as usual” in the cesspool that is D.C., the really crazy part of this story is that as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rogers is charged with investigating the adequacy of security at the Benghazi compound prior to the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack.
For those of you who don’t know Congressman Mike Rogers, he is the Representative hailing from Michigan’s Eighth District. He is also one of the biggest blowhard, chicken-hawk defenders of unconstitutional NSA spying in all of Washington D.C.
“The little lock icon (HTTPS) we all trusted to keep our passwords, personal emails, and credit cards safe, was actually making all that private information accessible to anyone who knew about the exploit,” the popular blogging platform Tumblr wrote in a post.
Archaeologists unearthed an ancient coffin in northern Israel, and linked it to the age of pharaohs and the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt, officials said.
Scientists at the burial site also found a golden scarab which had the seal of Egyptian pharaoh Seti I, who ruled in the late Bronze Age, according to Israel’s Antiquities Authority.
Seti I was the father of Ramses II, whom some scholars have identified as the pharaoh who ruled during the Israelites’ escape from slavery in ancient Egypt.
How long until global food prices start doing their early 2011 spike leading to unfortunate consequences like various regional “springs” around the world, and how long until US inflation imports translates into inflation within America’s internal supply chain?
In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.
14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say,
Thy god, O Dan, liveth;
and, The manner of Beer-sheba liveth;
even they shall fall, and never rise up again.
Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel?
saith the Lord.Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt?
and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?
8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom,
and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the Lord.
9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.
10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword,
which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us..
The National Guard is following a direct order — but it’s not happy with it. All of the Guard’s AH-64 Apache helicopters are scheduled to go to the active Army, and there’s nothing its top brass can do about it.
“None of us like what we’re having to do,” National Guard Chief Gen. Frank Grass told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, the military website Defense One reported. “My big concern right now is figuring out how I’m going to move, and how many states I’m going to have an impact on, and what’s the cost of facilities and to retrain pilots. I’ve got to tackle that because the decision’s been made.”
A senior Russian diplomat on Wednesday angrily rejected U.S. warnings against striking an oil-for-goods contract with Iran, saying that Moscow wouldn’t be intimidated by threats.
Iran has agreed to temporarily limit its atomic work, which the West fears could be a cover for developing nuclear weapons, in return for some sanctions relief. Six world powers, including Russia, and Iran are working on a fuller deal that would place long-term restrictions on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for an end to all economic sanctions.
The main overnight event, which we commented on previously, was China’s trade data which was a disaster. March numbers turned out to be well below market consensus with exports falling 6.6% YoY (vs +4.8% expected) and imports falling 11.3% YoY (vs +3.9% expected). The underperformance of imports caused the trade balance to spike to $7.7bn (vs -$23bn in Feb).
And here comes the magic of spin: according to DB, “the market reaction has been muted perhaps because many have attributed today’s drop to distortions caused by last year’s over-invoicing issues…. the data quality issues from last year have caused a very high base for this year’s trade numbers.” In the first quarter of last year, exports grew on average by 19% YoY, which was substantially higher than the growth rate in the adjacent months. This year, Q1 exports have shrunk by an average of 4.7%. It’s a similar story for imports, which averaged 9.5% growth during Q1 last year, significantly higher than months prior and after, and stronger than the average during Q1 this year of 2.9%. So it’s likely that there are some base-effects at play that partially explain the weakness in today’s numbers, even if Lunar New Year distortions have been removed.
In other words, everyone knew about last year’s manipulated numbers, but nobody took them into consideration and now that the “reality” shocked everyone, it is time to goal seek the narrative, or, as it is better known in the US – “snow in the winter.”
In yet other words, fabricated Chinese data should be ignored, but is made more credible because it compares to prior “really and truly” fabricated data. One can’t make this up.
THE SUPERNATURAL WORLDVIEW
Examining Paranormal, PSI, and the Apocalyptic
The ongoing religious convergence coincides with more and more people adopting paranormal beliefs. If the real, Bible-believing church cannot provide adequate answers, people will increasingly turn to parapsychology and spiritualism. We would do well to have a command of the terminology and ideas associated with those areas of inquiry.
Chances are you’ve heard about these cauldrons of antagonism and tension. But there are other flash points around the world about to boil over. Here are a few you might not have heard about:
During a lunch at Los Alamos in 1950, physicist Enrico Fermi asked his colleagues working on the Manhattan Project, “Don’t you ever wonder where everybody is?” Fermi argued that given the large number of stars and planetary systems in the Milky Way and their old age, life should have arose and acquired technology that would be far more advanced than ours.
Don’t miss this brilliant talk by astrophysicist Jeff Kuhn. There are exponentially more planets in the Universe than stars. With technology like the upcoming Colossus Telescope, the decades-old Fermi question, will soon cease to be a paradox with the detection of advanced alien civilizations.
The Flash Crash in May 2010 was created by HFTs, and according to some, the quote stuffing bottleneck may have been intentional. How long until someone spoofs HFTs and forces them to be the reason for the next flash crash, in the process redirecting public fury from the Marriner Eccles central planners and into nameless, faceless vacuum tubes?
