Evidence of the Islamic terror threat within our borders

30 September 2014: Introduction to an investigative series: Following the attacks of 2001, I set out to “make a difference,” which was to assist our government by offering my services in my capacity as a multi-state licensed investigator. Okay, hold the chuckles, snickers and laughs at bay for a moment while I briefly explain my thinking at that time. In 2001, I had 16 years of investigative experience under my belt and several years of experience with the inner workings of certain government “operations” that the majority of people don’t even know exist.

I engaged in covert activities as an operational asset for a few “three-letter” government agencies on matters unrelated to terrorism. Accordingly, I made some very valuable contacts, and became an operational asset in the realm of counter-terrorism. I assembled a group of other investigators and together, we infiltrated password protected Arabic language forums and discussion groups, and I conducted covert surveillance operations of various Muslim sites inside the U.S. that appeared to be engaging in activities that included paramilitary training.

As if that’s not romantic enough, from a folklore prospective, the eclipse will fall on Alpheratz, a star of liberation, in the Andromeda galaxy, according to my source.

If you remember from mythology, the princess Andromeda was chained to a rock by her father as a sacrifice to save his kingdom from the sea god Poseidon’s wrath. Fear not, it’s a lucky star, because in the end Andromeda is rescued by love, namely in the form of her hero, Perseus. Sigh, we should all be so fortunate.

This particular full moon is known as the blood moon or the hunter moon. It falls after the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox.

Don’t get blindsided by what is ahead. Evidence of the coming catastrophe is all around you.

I know that headline sounds completely outrageous. But it is actually true. The U.S. government is borrowing about 8 trillion dollars a year, and you are about to see the hard numbers that prove this. When discussing the national debt, most people tend to only focus on the amount that it increases each 12 months. And as I wrote about recently, the U.S. national debt has increased by more than a trillion dollars in fiscal year 2014. But that does not count the huge amounts of U.S. Treasury securities that the federal government must redeem each year. When these debt instruments hit their maturity date, the U.S. government must pay them off. This is done by borrowing more money to pay off the previous debts. In fiscal year 2013, redemptions of U.S. Treasury securities totaled $7,546,726,000,000 and new debt totaling $8,323,949,000,000 was issued. The final numbers for fiscal year 2014 are likely to be significantly higher than that.

I am about to share with you some numbers that were originally reported by CNS News. As you can see, far more debt is being redeemed and issued today than back during the middle part of the last decade…

The only way that this game can continue is if the U.S. government can continue to borrow gigantic piles of money at ridiculously low interest rates.

And our current standard of living greatly depends on the continuation of this game.

If something comes along and rattles this Ponzi scheme, life in America could change radically almost overnight.

And when a black swan comes calling, the value of all those sticky assets will not be what’s on the books, but what can be salvaged in a plunging market when hot money lenders want their money back….and now. So of course Lehman was insolvent and massively so. It had funded itself so that its assets were only worth their fire sale price.

The great error of September 2008, therefore, was not in failing to bailout Lehman. It was in providing a $100 billion liquidity hose to Morgan Stanley and an even larger one to Goldman. They too were insolvent. That was the essence of their business model.

Not surprisingly, Greenspan co-architect in creating this madness was Alan Blinder. As he told Stewart in today’s article, there was no doubt that the Fed could have saved Lehman and should have:

“Of course the Fed can stop a run,” said Mr. Blinder, the economist. “That’s what it’s all about.”
That’s right. Its policies inherently generate runs, and then it stands ready with limitless free money to rescue the gamblers. You can call that pragmatism, if you like. But don’t call it capitalism.

RX For Revisionist Bunkum: A Lehman Bailout Wouldn’t Have Saved The Economy

Needless to say, the above wasn’t sustainable and didn’t reflect either the free market at work or greed running rampant in the towns and cities of America. It was the cheap money and Wall Street coddling policies of the Fed which generated the housing binge, and the gambling hall known as Lehman Brothers that had gone along for the ride.

It is therefore especially misfortunate that mainstream journalists like Stewart take up the revisionist line that Lehman was “solvent”, and that a great mistake was made in not throwing it a life line. Well, it just doesn’t fricking matter whether it was “solvent”. It was self-evidently illiquid because it – like the rest of Wall Street – had funded tens of billions of illiquid, opaque and drastically over-valued long-term assets in the short-term money markets. It was a classic, massive funding mismatch and there is no doubt whatsoever about what caused it, and why it happened.

What caused it, of course, is the fundamental tool of Fed policy – that is, pegging the money market rate (federal funds) and holding it rigidly in place until a well telegraphed decision to change it is announced from the Eccles Building. Stated differently, Fed policy inherently offers a big fat yield curve arbitrage to Wall Street and a guarantee that it can be taken to the bank day after day.

By contrast, in the pre-Fed era money market rates could move by hundreds of basis points per day, and that most definitely did deter large banks from loading up on illiquid assets and funding their books with hot money. To be sure, there were plenty of punters prior to 1913, but the game was played in the call money market and their were no illusions among the participants.

“If Something Rattles This Ponzi Scheme, Life In America Will Change Overnight” 

Centers for Disease Control has issued guidelines to U.S. funeral homes on how to handle the remains of Ebola patients. If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines?

CDC issues Ebola guidelines for U.S. funeral homes 

Federal health-care officials, hospital administrators and emergency-care doctors are preparing for the first cases of Ebola here in the United States. Experts say it’s not a question of if, but rather when it will happen.

Readying for Ebola: How U.S. Hospitals Are Gearing Up 

A man who flew from Liberia to Texas has become the first patient infected with the deadly Ebola virus to be diagnosed in the United States, health officials said on Tuesday, a sign the outbreak ravaging West Africa may spread globally.

The patient sought treatment six days after arriving in Texas on Sept. 20, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told reporters. He was admitted two days later to an isolation room at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

if Ebola starts spreading like wildfire in this country, we are going to see pain and suffering beyond anything that most of us have ever imagined.

CDC Confirms First Ebola Case Diagnosed In The US, In Dallas Hospital – Press Conference Live Feed

As experts (as opposed to President Obama) had warned, the probability of Ebola coming to the US is around 20% by year-end. So it should not be a total surprise that:

*CDC CONFIRMS FIRST EBOLA CASE DIAGNOSED IN THE UNITED STATES
*EBOLA PATIENT IS IN DALLAS HOSPITAL, NEWS 8 REPORTS
The patient recently returned (via plane) from traveling from Liberia, West Africa. This perhaps explains why CDC was “taking precautions in the US” as we noted previously. And don’t forget the administration’s interference in Ebola treatments.

*CDC SAYS INDIVIDUAL LEFT FROM LIBERIA
*CDC SAYS PERSON WITH EBOLA IN TEXAS LEFT LIBERIA ON SEPT. 19<<<Interesting timing, prophetic.
*CDC SAYS INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPED SYMPTONS ON SEPT. 26
*CDC SAYS U.S. EBOLA PATIENT IS A MALE
*CDC IDENTIFIED ALL PERSONS THAT MAY BE IN CONTACT W/ INDIVIDUAL
*CDC SAYS ALL PERSONS IDENTIFIED ARE MONITORED FOR 21 DAYS
*CDC DIRECTOR SAYS: `I HAVE NO DOUBT WE WILL CONTROL THIS CASE’
*CDC DIRECTOR SAYS: `THERE IS NO DOUBT WE WILL STOP IT HERE’

82% of Ebola patients are being turned away from hospitals to die at home, spreading infections to family members

A lack of available hospital beds in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, the three countries at the epicenter of the worst Ebola outbreak in history, is leaving many families with nowhere to take their sick and dying. More than 80 percent of Ebola patients, in fact, are being turned away from hospitals and sent back home, where they continue to spread the disease to family members, friends and others in the community.

With its collapsed health service, sick and poorly equipped security forces and broken economy, Ebola-hit Liberia finds itself on the brink of complete societal breakdown, experts warn.

Netanyahu at UN: I’m willing to make a historic compromise (The Prophetic ”Covenant With Many” Conforms Antichrist And Tribulation Begins)

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said on Monday during his speech at the UN that he is willing to make a “historic compromise” with the Palestinians.

He continued and said that the Arab world is beginning to recognize the common interests with Israel due to the escalation of radical Islam and that they will help facilitate peace with the Palestinians.

“Russia Could Ditch Dollar In 2-3 Years”; Deputy PM Warns Nuclear Subs “Could Reach Any Country On Any Continent”

Perhaps Russia is now learning the lesson that America has now forgotten. Maybe Obama’s America will become a spur to Russia — like Hitler, Tojo, and Mussolini, became spurs to America, in a time that America, evidently, has indeed forgotten, and in which we have become, eerily, the other side.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that Antichrist 666 President Obozo has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at the feet of his Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

“I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” said Obama. According to Daily Beast reporter Eli Lake, members of the Defense establishment were “flabbergasted” by Obama’s attempt to shift blame.

“Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bullshitting,” a former senior Pentagon official “who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq” told the Daily Beast..

3 Times Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo Administration Was Warned About ISIS Threat 

But for nearly a year, senior officials in the U.S. government have been warning about the alarming rise of ISIS, or ISIL as the terrorist group is also known, and the inability of the Iraqi government to confront the threat.

Here are three examples:
BRETT MCGURK

Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Iraq and Iran
On Nov. 14, 2013, State Department official Brett McGurk testified before a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee extensively about the growing threat of ISIL/ISIS.
“We face a real problem,” McGurk said. “There is no question that ISIL is growing roots in Syria and in Iraq.”
McGurk was quite specific about the extent of the threat. He cited the group’s alarming campaign of suicide bombings, its growing financial resources and its expanding safe haven in Syria.
“We have seen upwards of 40 suicide bombers per month targeting playgrounds, mosques, and markets, in addition to government sites from Basra to Baghdad to Erbil,” he said.
He was also specific about the inability of the Iraqi government to deal with it.
“AQ/ISIL has benefited from a permissive operating environment due to inherent weaknesses of Iraqi security forces, poor operational tactics, and popular grievances, which remain unaddressed, among the population in Anbar and Nineva provinces.”

ROBERT BEECROFT

U.S. Ambassador to Iraq
In January, ISIS/ISIL gave a strong indication of just how much of a threat they posed when the group took over the Iraqi city of Fallujah and part of Ramadi. At that point, U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Robert Beecroft said it could get a whole lot worse.
“It’s a very precarious situation,” Beercroft told ABC News’ Martha Raddatz. “And a misstep anywhere could set off a larger conflict in the country.”
Lt. Gen. MICHAEL FLYNN

U.S. Army Director, Defense Intelligence Agency
On Feb. 11, 2014, the Pentagon’s top intelligence official, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, warned the group would likely attempt to take over even more territory.
“ISIL probably will attempt to take territory in Iraq and Syria to exhibit its strength in 2014, as demonstrated recently in Ramadi and Fallujah, and the group’s ability to concurrently maintain multiple safe havens in Syria,” Flynn told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

That’s a prediction, unfortunately, that proved to be right on target.

^^^This is the DIA Director that Obozo and the Clapper made a lame duck and forced out before his time/AKA fired. It does not get anymore plain that Antichrist Team Obozo ”IS” the obvious threat to American security and the direct domestic enemy than to have the head of the entire Intelligence of the United States fired for being intelligent. How Antichrist NWO Team 666 Obozo remains in power, much less alive, …because the prophetic revelation is being confirmed and judgment is now come to all nations.

FIRE IN THE SKY: High-Speed Fireball – Meteor-Like Object Spotted Over Siberia!

Back in June 2011, Zero Hedge first posted:

“Exclusive: The Fed’s $600 Billion Stealth Bailout Of Foreign Banks Continues At The Expense Of The Domestic Economy, Or Explaining Where All The QE2 Money Went”
which we followed up on various occasions, most notably with

“How The Fed’s Latest QE Is Just Another European Bailout” and
“The Fed’s Bailout Of Europe Continues With Record $237 Billion Injected Into Foreign Banks In Past Month.”

Another Conspiracy Theory Becomes Fact: The Fed’s “Stealth Bailout” Of Foreign Banks Goes Mainstream

So here is Hilsy “figuring out” what we have been explaining for over 3 years!

Though small in relation to their overall revenues, interest payments from the Fed have been a source of virtually risk-free returns for foreign banks. Large holders of Fed reserves include Deutsche Bank, UBS AG, Bank of China and Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, according to bank regulatory filings. U.S. banks including J.P. Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of America Corp. are also big recipients of Fed interest payments, according to the filings.

“It is a small transfer from U.S. taxpayers to foreign taxpayers,” said Joseph Gagnon, a former Fed economist at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. The transfer, he added, was a side effect of Fed policy, not a goal.
Actually it is a goal, but that would lead to a whole lot of embarrassing congressional hearings which the Fed would rather avoid, plus nobody really “gets” it. The reason why? Apparently things are so “complex” that anyone who figured it out years ago was clearly a conspiracy theorist:

Behind the payments is a complex interplay between new government regulatory policies and new methods the Fed has developed to control short-term interest rates.

The Fed has pumped nearly $3 trillion into the banking system since the 2008 financial crisis, increasing banks’ reserves, in efforts to stabilize markets and boost economic growth.

Since 2008, it has paid banks interest of 0.25% on those reserves. The Fed affirmed this month that the rate it pays on reserves will be the primary tool it uses to raise short-term borrowing costs from near zero when the time comes, likely next year.

In part because regulatory requirements discourage domestic banks from holding more cash reserves than they need, many of the reserves created by the Fed are held by foreign banks.
In other words, the Fed-funded risk-free carry trade finally goes mainstream. Of course, all those who read ZH in 2011 will know all of this by now:

We can only hope someone in Congress asks Ben Bernanke in two weeks just under which Fed charter it is that the Fed is more focused on generating profits (not just trillions in excess liquidity) for European banks, than on opening up consumer lending which has been stuck in “petrified” mode for the past 4 years, with the total amount of loans outstanding currently at all US banks – foreign and domestic – at levels last seen the week Lehman filed for bankruptcy.
Obviously, nobody asked Bernanke and nobody has asked Yellen this simple question, because until last night apparently nobody aside from the Zero Hedge community had any grasp of what is going on.

That said, we doubt that anyone in control will ask any related questions in the near of not so near future even with Hilsenrath’s “How The Fed Is Bailing Out Foreign Banks For Dummies” primer, because let’s not forget – the same banks that control the Fed are also the same banks that purchase politicians at every possible opportunity (see for example: With Cantor Down, Which Other Politicians Has Goldman Invested In?).

In fact, the only good news from Hilsenrath’s report is that yet another conspiracy theory has been documented as unconspiracy fact. Then again, Zero Hedge readers knew all of this over three years ago, for free.

It ”IS” about time for the usual suspects to pull off (another) ”ONE” (WTC) of their prophetic NWO Dial 911-666-ADD-Debt (goodbye New York the Harbinger judgment ”IS” coming) WMD margin calls, and a prophetic plague twist will do too.

In the 1990’s, I was a Maricopa County volunteer first responder. This meant that if there was a pandemic or a chemical/biological attack, I would be expected to help dispense treatment. This also meant that my family would be first in line for any treatments. The program was eventually absorbed by FEMA. From the absorption, I began a friendship with a FEMA employee, his expertise was bioterrorism based pandemics.

In the fall of 2012, he “early” retired as did many of his colleagues. Unbeknown to me, he and several of his colleagues had been preparing a “bug out” location in a remote area. He was one of the people that I wrote about in the last article who went into hiding to avoid what they believe is coming.

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/09/30/false-flag-events-martial-law-ww-iii-transhumanism/

My friendship with this person became a part of my awakening process. In the course of the last couple of decades, I learned, firsthand, how many of our alphabet soup agencies are not about protecting the public interest. In effect, they are fascist in nature and serve to protect the interests of Big Pharma, other major corporations and the eventual imposition of martial law. Today, this is not a stunning revelation. Nearly 20 years ago, these notions were considered to be on the extreme fringe.

From several intense conversations I had with this individual, I can now clearly see the unfolding of the collapse of this nation, step by step. In the following paragraphs, I will detail how various false flag attacks will fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle in order to achieve this aim.

http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/2014/09/29/u-s-quietly-preparing-for-ebola-outbreak-cdc-issues-ebola-guidelines-for-u-s-funeral-homes-how-to-dispose-of-bodies/

In 2006, an award winning University of Texas evolutionary ecologist, Dr Eric R. Pianka, advocated the use of airborne Ebola to kill off 90 percent of the world’s population. According to a 2006 report by Life Site, and other reports, Pianka was investigated by the FBI after receiving a complaint that Pianka was “advocating biological terrorism.”

All of which is why the FBI is interested in talking to Texas ecologist and herpetologist, Dr. Eric R. Pianka, who suggested at a meeting of the Texas Academy of Sciences that an airborne version of Ebola that would wipe out 90% of the human population was the solution to the human “overpopulation problem.”

Proof Of US Plan To Kill 90% Of World Population With Airborne Ebola? 

In 2007, according to the video below and documents that have been widely reported on, the US government, via the CDC, procured the patent on Ebola, which includes any strain, including hybrid strains that hold a 70 percent commonality. This was just one year after Pianka’s “doomsday” speech. Furthermore, it was in 2006 as well, uncovered by David Hodges of The Common Sense Show, that a company called Crucell entered Phase I clinical trials in for the Ebola vaccine, to which the NIH owns the patent.

In the David Vose video below, we see a more detailed description of Pianka’s speech, where he reportedly accompanied his “doomsday” talk, with a slideshow, which included an image depicting the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

The timing of this speech advocating the use of airborne Ebola, with the CDC’s obtaining the patent and the clinical trials for the vaccine starting the same year as the Pianka speech, cannot be ignored, nor should it be. Also consider the coincidental timing of the Geogia Guidestones, which also advocates the culling of 90 percent of the population, having a mysterious addition of the 2014, which has since been removed, and the deliberate transporting of Ebola exposed persons into the United States.

Much more in the video below.

The virus that has infected nearly 10,000 people in West Africa and killed over 3,000 so far this year may now be in America.

Multiple news sources are reporting that an individual showing symptoms of the Ebola virus has been admitted to a hospital in Dallas, Texas. The patient, whose travel history suggests he or she may have been exposed to the virus, has been isolated and Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas says it is following testing and quarantine procedures outlined by the Centers for Disease Control.

Test samples have been sent to the CDC and preliminary test results are expected Tuesday morning.

http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/ebola-alert-u-s-patient-zero-suspected-in-dallas-isolated-travel-history-and-symptoms-suggest-infection_09292014

What is not being said publicly about the virus but is a major concern behind closed doors is that Ebola’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented and there is widespread concern that it could go airborne much like a common cold or flu. The CDC has admitted that it can be transmitted through the air in the form of water droplets already, but they have yet to admit that it is an airborne contagion.

And yet the Chernobyl disaster clearly pales in comparison to Fukushima. Not only is Fukushima far more of a threat to humanity due to its direct proximity to the ocean, but the most credible data we have shows that, in the aftermath, Fukushima is spreading far more radiation across the globe than Chernobyl ever could.

FUK-U-SHIMA: “Hands-Down The Worst Nuclear Disaster In History” – Data Proves Fukushima Has Exceeded Chernobyl In Radiation Release!

Even worse is the fact that the 120 PBq figure does not take into account all the other radioactive isotopes like strontium, plutonium and uranium that have been spreading through the air and water since 2011 when the disaster occurred. Taking all these other contaminants into account paints an even more dire picture of what the world has to look forward to.

STORM ALERT: Tropical Storm Kammuri To Batter Japan – With Rough Surf, Wind, Showers And Thunderstorms! 

It’s a clever ploy to be sure: Kansas officials are hoping to use pop culture’s collective zombie obsession to encourage people to prepare for real natural disasters.

“If you’re equipped to handle the zombie apocalypse then you’re prepared for tornadoes, severe storms, fire and any other natural disaster Kansas usually faces,” Devan Tucking of the Division of Emergency Management said in a statement on the Governor’s website. “This is a fun and low-stress way to get families involved, and past turnouts have proven it to be effective.”

To say that Europe is doomed is an understatament, so much so that every European politician, banker, bureaucrat, and bean-counter has, over the past 5 years, taken at least one opportunity to deny and thus validate the statement.

But while there is cornucopia of reasons which foretell the collapse of the artificial monetary and pseudo-political union, whether it is the relentless deterioration in European output: or the collapse in private lending, something the ECB is supposedly trying to fix with its latest TLTRO/Private QE…. or the mountain of private debt created since the Great financial crisis …Eclipsed only by the amount of public debt created in the same period……one thing is clear: Europe is finished, though not for any of the above reasons but for a far more simple one, a reason very well-known to the Japanese – there simply won’t be any Europeans left

Why Europe’s Doomsayers Are Right, In One Chart

In retrospect perhaps it is time for Wolfi Schauble to take a stab at draft 2 of his famous FT scribe: “Ignore the doomsayers: Europe is being fixed,” because, we are sad to report, the doomsayers are right: Europe is finished.

Draghi urges ECB to take Greek, Cypriot ‘junk’
Relaxation of rules likely to face staunch opposition in Germany

Just a week ago, the Russian energy minister made the first public ‘threat’ of gas supply “throttling” disruptions to Europe but judging by the data that has just been released, it appears the ‘throttling’ has begun. Bloomberg reports that Russian gas supplies to Europe fell 15% year-over-year in Q3 – the most in over two years – as natural gas transit through Ukraine plunged 54% year-over-year. In 2013, Gazprom sent 60% of its supply via Ukraine pipelines, in August that dropped to 39%, and in September only 34%. Of course, Europe remains confident its storage efforts will buffer any “Winter War” disruptions, as we noted here, but as Citi warned previously, “if colder weather arrives, storage levels will be drained,” and then there is the Spring (and German industry needs).

Did The Winter War Just Begin? Russian Gas Supplies To Europe Plunge 15%, Ukraine Transit Slashed 54%

Things are rapidly shifting from bad to worse for PIMCO. In a triple whammy this morning, Bloomberg reports the Total Return Fund ETF (managed previously by Bill Gross) has suffered $446 million outflows (or over 12.5% of assets) so far; Morningstar downgrades the fund from ‘gold’ to ‘bronze’ citing “uncertainty regarding outflows and the reshuffling of management responsibilities”; and perhaps most concerning – given our previous warnings over bond market illiquidity – The FT reports, US regulators are monitoring trading and fund flows surrounding PIMCO’s Total Return Bond fund warning investors they should contemplate the unintended consequences of pulling their money and the possibility of systemic risk disruptions, fearful of “runs.”

Who could have seen that coming?

Authorities say they captured a New Jersey man, identified as Duane Holmes, in Pennsylvania with not only dozens of stolen cell phones in his car, but also a drone. An officer had observed the same drone hovering over the Upper Saucon Police Department conducting surveillance the day before the burglary of a Verizon store in town, CBS 2’s Christine Sloan exclusively reported.

An exclusive memo obtained by CBS 2 linked Dykes and Holmes to a burglary ring which has been operating out of several states, including New Jersey, Sloan reported. Authorities were able to recover digital video recordings from the drone, Sloan reported. One of the shots was of the Cityplex 12 theater in Newark.

Rick Santelli Slams Central Bank Intervention For “Taking The Voters Out Of The Game” 

“Central Bankers have moved from being ‘nudgers’ on monetary policy to basically managing fiscal policy,” warns Rick Santelli, adding that “in the West, it’s now basically the same.” As Santelli points out so accurately, the central bankers have admitted as such, noting “they have to dabble in that direction because nothing can get done in ‘politics'” in the US or Europe “for the people – the voters.” What this has done, Santelli chides calmly is “take the voters out of the game.” Simply put, he blasts, “if central banks hadn’t had such a large foray into politics, politicians would have had to sink or swim on the merit – or lack therein – of their policies… that weren’t creating the growth.” He concludes ominously that the ‘spread’ between central-bank-inspired “stability” and real-world fiscal-policy-inspired “growth” has never been wider.

We leave it to the following 139 words by Elliott’s Paul Singer to conclude – which in two short paragraphs explains everything one needs to know about America’s record class inequality, including precisely who is the man responsible:

Inequality in the U.S. today is near its historical highs, largely because the Federal Reserve’s policies have succeeded in achieving their aim: namely, higher asset prices (especially the prices of stocks, bonds and high-end real estate), which are generally owned by taxpayers in the upper-income brackets. The Fed is doing all the work, because the President’s policies are growth-suppressive. In the absence of the Fed’s moneyprinting and ZIRP, the economy would either be softer or actually in a new recession.

The greatest irony is that the President is railing against inequality as one of the most important problems of the day, despite the fact that his policies are squeezing the middle class and causing the Fed – with the President’s encouragement – to engage in the radical monetary policy, which is exacerbating inequality.

Robert Latham Owen was a part-Cherokee Democratic Senator from Oklahoma between 1907 and 1925 who (ironically) championed efforts to strengthen public control of government.

He is, however, best-known as a co-sponsor of a bill that would change the world forever – The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 (which enabled the Federal Reserve System).

Writing later in his life, he reflected (as so many political leaders do once they leave office) on the real reason for the Federal Reserve Act…

Senate Sponsor Exposes The Real Reason For The Fed 

…Funding War!

The final destruction of the family unit, the nation-state, and Judeo-Christian and other forms of religion. From the early days of Karl Marx, who was an Illuminati agent, the goal was to destroy the family and replace it with the State. Anything which interferes with the total control of the World State will be destroyed, including the traditional family, patriotism, and any religion or belief system which hinders in any way the social mechanisms for total control.

PREDICTIVE PROGRAMMING, WATCHMEN, & TRANSFORMING THE FUTURE

Most people remember Karl Marx’s most potent points and phrases, and the mountain of corpses his disciples left behind, especially in the 20th century.

However, most forget or don’t even know the specific policies that Marx advocated.

Within his 1848 Communist Manifesto, Marx outlined a list of ten short-term demands. These, he thought, would be the precursor to the ideal stateless, classless communist society.

Ironically in today’s world, Marx’s demands look pretty much mainstream.

That is because nearly every single item on the list has been implemented to varying degrees in the United States.

Think that couldn’t be possible in the Land of the Free? Just take a look.

No, America Isn’t Communist; It’s Only 70% Communist

1. Topping Marx’s list is the abolition of private property.

True, private property exists, but only until the state wants to take it. With its powers of eminent domain, the government can and does confiscate people’s property when it wants for public use.

Your property isn’t unconditionally yours. Just think of property taxes, for example.

If it’s actually YOUR private property, then why would you need to pay tax on it? And why do they have the authority to take it from you if you don’t pay?

2. Likewise, while we haven’t seen the complete abolition of inheritance (another Marx demand), the government can take up to 40% of your estate when you die.

So ultimately your estate is not your own. You don’t get to control what happens to your wealth and possessions when you die. It’s just a matter of proportion.

3. and 4. Marx also demanded the centralization of transportation and communication. Check, and check.

Try broadcasting over the airwaves in the Land of the Free without a license and special permission.

Practically the entire electromagnetic spectrum is tightly controlled by the state, centralized by a handful of government agencies.

Same with the network of roads and highways. Because, after all, without government, who would build the roads…

5. Another point of Marx is state-guided agricultural production and combination of agriculture and manufacturing.

And the Land of the Free does not disappoint. Though its activities may not be as prominent in the news, the US Department of Agriculture is easily one of the busiest government departments.

With a budget of $146 billion a year, and much more for subsidies, USDA tirelessly works to dictate every major and miniscule activity in the sector.

6. Next on the list, is equal liability of all to labor. If you have at any point wondered, as I have, why politicians are always pushing jobs for the sake of jobs, rather than value and wealth creation—now you know why.

Between minimum wage laws and the constant stream of legislation that promises jobs for all, it is clear that politicians have wholly internalized this Marxian ideal.

Now, you might think that this is just a fluke, just a coincidence that some US policies resemble what’s on Marx’s list of demands.

But then you see these demands, which have not only been fully implemented in the US already, but are thoroughly entrenched in the national psyche:

7. First, there’s free education for all children, to enable the uniformity of thought. Check.

8. Then there’s a heavy progressive income tax. Yep, I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with this one, which has actually become so mainstream, that to have any system other than this would be considered revolutionary. Check.

9. Third, is the confiscation of the property of emigrants (expatriates) and rebels.

Between the IRS bullying of political opposition groups and the imposition of exit taxes for those that renounce their citizenship, the United States is firmly set up to discourage dissent and escape. Check.

10. And last but not least, the centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank. Check.

Remember, Karl Marx thought central banking was a great idea—the same guy who thought that individual success and private property were evil.

Think about that the next time the Federal Reserve comes up with a plan to help businesses and fix the economy.

So now you know, America isn’t communist. It’s only about 70% communist. No reason to worry.

In a recent interview with a French reporter, President Obama begins to boast that if you look at the statistics, America is actually “one of the top Muslim countries in the world.” He then goes on to say that because we are a Muslim nation, we need to educate ourselves on Islam.

That’s right. He called America a Muslim nation.

According to the video, the USA is not even near being a top Muslim nation in the world.

Russia has delivered a behind-the-scenes threat to retaliate if airstrikes carried out by the U.S. or its allies target the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Middle Eastern security officials told WND.

The officials said Russia warned it could potentially retaliate if U.S. or Arab airstrikes go beyond targeting Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, and instead bomb any Syrian regime targets.

The officials told WND they do not have any information about the seriousness of the Russian threat or whether Moscow meant it would retaliate directly or aid Assad’s air force in a military response.

The prime minister was to begin his visit on Sunday in a meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. This meeting marks the first between prime ministers of Israel and India time in over a decade.

On Tuesday, Netanyahu was to meet with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, followed Wednesday by a meeting with US President Barack Obama.

Prime minister to address UN Monday evening, vows to ‘refute the slander and lies’ purported by Iranian President Rouhani and Palestinian President Abbas.

to the sorrow of the civilized world, the twenty first century seems to have coughed up a third major totalitarian system – Islamism or radical Islam. There is absolutely no question that the sponsors of this ideology have in mind a totalitarian system for all regions in which that ideology will rule. It may be that the prime motivating factor in this third case is religion – unlike Nazism, in which it was race or volk; or Communism, in which it was economic or class. Nevertheless, according to the self-professed intentions of the Jihadists who espouse Islamism, the goal is to create a society ruled absolutely by Sharia Law. Based on prior experience in Afghanistan and those few despoiled spots in the Middle East (Iraq, Syria) and Africa (Sudan, parts of Mali) where rule by Sharia Law has been implemented, one must conclude that it is a political system, which seeks to control all aspects of the lives of those under its domain. Ergo, a totalitarian system.

The West in general and the Unites States in particular are now confronted by a lethal threat from this metastasizing totalitarian system

Considering that as recently as 3 weeks ago the leader of the Occupy Central movement in Hong Kong decided to throw in the towel, after admitting that his civil disobedience movement’s pursuit of democracy had “failed” as a result of waning public support, many are shocked by how aggressively Hong Kong’s students took up the baton: almost as if the mystery sponsor behind the ISIS blitz-ascent from obscurity had decided to “destabilize” yet another region. Tongue-in-cheek kidding aside, for everyone confused about the context of this weekend’s at time very violent student protests, here is Evergreen GaveKal with its wrap up of the “Hong Kong Democracy Protests.”

The Hong Kong Protest: What It’s All About

For those curious why the Hong Kong protests over the weekend have sent shivers across the world’s capital markets, pushed the Hang Seng 2% lower, and impacted both European and US futures, not to mention leading to worries that China may get involved any second and result in another Tiananmen square event, the following clip from HK’s Apple Daily, taken by a drone, shows just how massive the demonstrations, which according to some estimates involved just why of 100,000 people, taking place in Hong Kong are.

Stunning Drone Clip Reveals Massive Size Of Hong Kong Protest 

As Mashable adds, “far from a small protest by a limited number of outspoken citizens, the video shows just how large the movement to preserve Hong Kong’s democratic elections has become. Currently, the protests have grown so large that parts of Hong Kong’s business district have been brought to a standstill, prompting the temporary closure of 17 local banks. In addition to the drone footage, Apple Daily has also posted a live video stream of the protests, allowing the world to watch as events develop in real time.”

Globalization and Tyranny – Dr. Stan Monteith & Sheriff Richard Mack Speech from Santa Cruz, CA

In a December 9, 2012 interview on The Common Sense Show, Jim Marrs discussed how approximately 400-500 top level bankers have left their positions and have gone into seclusion. Marrs reminded my listening audience of how the elite have developed seed vaults which only they have access to. Marrs was clearly alluding to the fact that some very bad events are coming and the global elite are aware of it and are moving to meet the threat. My insider sources inform me that the same thing is happening in various federal organizations who have recently retired from the CIA, DHS, NSA and FEMA. This fact is indisputable. I have firsthand knowledge of four ex-fed officials and their families who have relocated to safety enclaves when doing so was very disruptive to their respective family’s lives. Increasingly, it is looking like some major event(s) is/are coming and persons with insider information are attempting to remove themselves from harm’s way.

When These People Go Into Hiding, It Is Time to Pay Attention

Zbigniew Brzezinski is the most visible and vocal of the hands that have designed and produced the machinery of death that they plan to use against us. The other is Henry Kissinger. Both men have been acting on behalf of the New World Order for decades, and it appears that their plans are being set in motion.
What are these plans?

Genocide

Genocide, of course. But, it will be a process of genocide that will bring them more and more power, as more and more of us die. It will be a slow enough process so that those who are being targeted will throw themselves at the mercy of the ones that are killing them. It is an ages-old tactic with a proven record of success. And, they are using it here.

Pandemic Disease

Consider their use of pandemic disease as an example. We have had two genetically different strains of Ebola break out at the same time in Africa, yet most of us haven’t stopped to think about how statistically unnatural that is. Nor have we thought to ask why we are being lied to about the transmission of Ebola and its lethality.
Of course, once it arrives on America’s shores – assuming that it hasn’t already immigrated there – the dangers will be hyped, as well as the solution.

Their solution.

Dave’s article highlights the training and preparations made by FEMA for such an event, and that should give you a very, very clear idea of the future. And no, you do NOT want those vaccines and those FEMA camps.

Unless properly discerned, understood and responded too, the ultimate attempt to corrupt the image and authority of God reflected in his Word, his people and their governing bodies, the final attempts to seduce and frighten humanity into submission to a synthesized political and religious authority by radical political and satanically inspired ritualized means appears to be merely a few crisis away from being undertaken.

And, if your sole focus for your existence hasn’t been on sales, customers, and net profit. Or, you’ve been lackadaisical in any other manner because the dominating thought in your mind is – “I just need to get another round, then I can IPO and be through with this?” Your time is probably up.

One may see an increased flurry of buying into anything and everything that has even the slightest possibility of making a profit. Or, what Wall Street cares about even more; a growth story that can be perpetuated via financial engineering that sticks during earnings seasons.

But, one shouldn’t read into this as “confirmation” the risk appetite story is not only alive but growing. For that is all about to change.

The Shot Heard Round The Valley World

For several days we had heard a persistent rumor, that one of the most famous members of the New York Fed’s Markets Group, also known as the Plunge Protection Team, Kevin Henry was moving to the HFT capital of the world, Chicago. We refused to believe it because, let’s face it, when the trading desk on the 9th floor of Liberty 33 needs to get its hands dirty in stocks, it simply delegates said task using just a little more than arms length negotiation, with the world’s most levered HFT hedge fund: Ken Griffin’s Citadel. Why change the status quo.

The Plunge Protection Team Is Opening An HFT-Focused Chicago Office

And then, it turned out to be true because as the Chicago Fed announced just a few short days ago:

But the king will rejoice in God;
all who swear by God will glory in him,
while the mouths of liars will be silenced.

Their urgency surprised me, though it probably shouldn’t have. These academics were debating what they believe could be one of the greatest threats to mankind – could superintelligent computers wipe us all out?

Apocalypse soon: the scientists preparing for the end times
A growing community of scientists, philosophers and tech billionaires believe we need to start thinking seriously about the threat of human extinction.

I was visiting the Future of Humanity Institute, a research department at Oxford University founded in 2005 to study the “big-picture questions” of human life. One of its main areas of research is existential risk. The physicists, philosophers, biologists, economists, computer scientists and mathematicians of the institute are students of the apocalypse.

Predictions of the end of history are as old as history itself, but the 21st century poses new threats. The development of nuclear weapons marked the first time that we had the technology to end all human life. Since then, advances in synthetic biology and nanotechnology have increased the potential for human beings to do catastrophic harm by accident or through deliberate, criminal intent.

In July this year, long-forgotten vials of smallpox – a virus believed to be “dead” – were discovered at a research centre near Washington, DC. Now imagine some similar incident in the future, but involving an artificially generated killer virus or nanoweapons. Some of these dangers are closer than we might care to imagine. When Syrian hackers sent a message from the Associated Press Twitter account that there had been an attack on the White House, the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock market briefly fell by $136bn. What unthinkable chaos would be unleashed if someone found a way to empty people’s bank accounts?

Clarifying a passage in his 1988 book A Brief History of Time, he said that what he meant by “we would know the mind of God” was that people would know “everything that God knew if there was a God, but there was no god,” adding that he was an atheist.

Last Generation Lamentation

The British inventor of the World Wide Web warned on Saturday that the freedom of the internet is under threat by governments and corporations interested in controlling the web.

Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist who invented the web 25 years ago, called for a bill of rights that would guarantee the independence of the internet and ensure users’ privacy.

“If a company can control your access to the internet, if they can control which websites they go to, then they have tremendous control over your life,” Berners-Lee said at the London “Web We Want” festival on the future of the internet.

“If a Government can block you going to, for example, the opposition’s political pages, then they can give you a blinkered view of reality to keep themselves in power.”

“Suddenly the power to abuse the open internet has become so tempting both for government and big companies.”

Inventor of World Wide Web warns of threat to internet

Congress must hold “oversight hearings on the disturbing issues” raised by the secretly recorded conversations between the Fed and Goldman officials, Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass, D) said on Friday. Portions of recordings from 2011 and 2012 were recently made public, apparently showing unwillingness by some Fed supervisors to both demand information from Goldman Sachs and criticize its conflict-of-interest policy.

US senators demand probe into leaked Goldman Sachs tapes 

When regulators care more about protecting big banks from accountability than they do about protecting the American people from risky and illegal behavior on Wall Street, it threatens our whole economy,” Warren said in an emailed statement to Reuters, adding that the issues raised by the whistleblower should be addressed when Congress returns in November. .

These trends in oil, debt and demographics are stark facts all on their own. But when we tie these to the obvious ecological strains of meeting the needs of just the world’s current 7.1 billion, any adherence to the status quo seems worse than merely delusional. When the price of money itself is distorted, then all prices are merely derivative works of that primary distortion. Some prices will be too high, some far too low, but none accurately determined by the intersection of true demand and supply. If reality no longer has a place at the table — such as when policy makers act as if the all-too-temporary shale oil bonanza is now a new permanent constant — then the discussions happening around that table are only accidentally useful, if ever, and always delusional.

By The Numbers

Humans now number 7.1 billion on the planet and that number is on track to rise to 8 or 9 billion by 2050. Already ‘energy per capita’ is stagnant across the world and has been for a few decades. If the human population indeed grows by 15-25% over the next three and a half decades, then net energy production will have to grow by the same amount simply to remain constant on a per capita basis.

But can it? Specifically, can the net energy we derive from oil grow by another 15% to 25% from here?

In 2013, total worldwide oil discoveries were just 20 billion barrels. That’s against a backdrop of 32 billion barrels of oil production and consumption. Since 1984, consuming more oil than we’re discovering has been a yearly ritual. To use an analogy: it’s as if we’re spending from a trust fund at a faster rate than the interest and dividends are accruing. Eventually, you eat through the principal balance and then it’s game over.

Meanwhile, even as the total net energy we receive from oil slips and our consumption wildly surpasses discoveries, the collective debt of the developed economies has surpassed the $100 trillion mark — which is a colossal bet that the future economy will not only be larger than it is currently, but exponentially larger.

These debts are showing no signs of slowing down. Indeed, the world’s central banks are doing everything in their considerable monetary power to goose them higher, even if this means printing money out of thin air and buying the debt themselves. Along with this, the demographics of most developed economies will be drawing upon badly-underfunded pension and entitlement accounts — most of which are literally nothing more substantial than empty political promises made many years ago.

The ground water is being removed at a far faster rate than it naturally replenishes.

This math is simple. Each time an aquifer is over-pumped, the length of time left for that aquifer to serve human needs diminishes. Easy, simple math. Very direct. And yet, we see cultures all over the globe continuing to build populations and living centers – very expensive investments, both economically and energetically – that are dependent for their food and water on these same over-pumped aquifers.

Conclusion

Ready Or Not… The Unsustainable Status Quo Is Ending

Look, it’s really this simple: Anything that can’t go on forever, won’t. We know, financially speaking, that a great number of nations are utterly insolvent no matter how much the accounting is distorted. Said another way: there’s really no point in worrying about the combined $100 trillion shortfall in Social Security and Medicare, because it simply won’t be paid. Why? It can’t, so it won’t. The promised entitlements dwarf our ability to fund them many times over. There’s really not much more to say there.

But the biggest predicament we face is that steadily-eroding net energy from oil, which will someday be married to steadily-falling output as well, can’t support billions more people and our steadily growing pile of debt. Just as there’s no plan at all for what to do when the groundwater runs out besides ‘Let the folks in the future figure that one out,’ there’s no plan at all for reconciling the forced continuation of borrowing at a faster rate than the economy can (or likely will be able to) grow.

Because all of this inevitably leads to some sort of time of reckoning, natural questions emerge: What might happen and when? What would that feel like? How would I know it’s started? Given the knowns and unknowns, are there any dominant strategies for mitigating the risks that I should undertake? What are the challenges and what are the opportunities?

And because for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu relations between Iran and Israel are a zero sum game, any Iranian achievement and any Western concession to Iran is a loss for Israel. In Netanyahu’s speech at the General Assembly on Monday and in his meeting with Obama, the prime minister will try to minimize the negative fallout for Israel. It is doubtful that he will succeed. The world knows that the military threats that Israel wielded successfully from 2011-2013 are no longer realistic.

UN Appoints Great-Grandson of Caliph Who Opposes Free Speech as Human Rights Chief

So what are Zeid’s qualifications for the job? Well he is a cousin of the King of Jordan. As a result he’s been appointed to a variety of positions. He’s also a great-grandson of Caliph Hussein bin Ali, who claimed to rule all the Arabs, before he got taken down by the House of Saud.

(And if you think the Saudi gang still don’t resent all Europeans over it and want revenge, you don’t know the Middle East well.)

The UN has often been a joke, but appointing a member of an unelected monarchy (who is also a claimant for the thrones of Iraq and Syria, good luck with that) as human rights chief is a sublime gag.

It’s like the UN is desperately trying to let us all in on on the joke.
