Saturday September 13, 2014: When you come… <<<—-Must Watch!!!
Ever since the Lehman bankruptcy, one of the main reasons given by the perpetual apologists about why i) the so-called “recovery” has been the worst in US history and ii) the Fed has been “forced” to conduct 6 years of wealth transferring policies, boosting the stock market to all time highs and creating a record wealth split in US society between the super rich and everyone else (one that surpasses even that seen during the roaring 20s) is that the US consumer, scarred by the economic crash, has been rushing to deleverage and dump as much debt as possible.
There are two problems with that story:
First, as we first pointed out in 2012, US households are not deleveraging, they are defaulting, a huge difference which goes to motive and intent, and shows that instead of actively paying down debt households are instead loading up on as much debt as they can, which at some point they simply stop servicing (for a detailed analysis of this disturbing trend, read our series on the student loan bubble).
Second, when it comes to the poorest quartile of US society, some 14 million people, it is dead wrong. In fact, as the Fed’s triennial Survey of Consumer Finances, released last week showed, America’s poorest have never been more in debt!.
First it was the ‘broad coalition’ that appeared a little narrower than President Obama explained to the world last week. Today, 2 more crucial aspects of the ‘strategy’ appear to be faltering. Despite the promise of $500 million to train “moderate” Syrian terrorist/rebels to fight ISIS, GlobalPost reports Syrian rebels and jihadists from the Islamic State have agreed a non-aggression pact for the first time. Under the deal, “the two parties will respect a truce until a final solution is found and they promise not to attack each other because they consider the principal enemy to be the Nussayri regime.” Not exactly what Obama and Kerry had in mind. But it is John Kerry’s trip to Iraq that appears to have had blowback already as Reuters reports the newly installed US-friendly PM al-Adadi ordered his air force to halt strikes on civilian areas, “even in those towns controlled by ISIS,” just a day after Kerry’s visit (which left Turkey explaining how it would not support US airstrikes either). So far, so good?!
First, Germany and UK (and Australia) – the USA’ broad coalition of allies to strike ISIS – will not support airstrikes on ISIS in Syria.
Second, Turkey – the USA’s closest ally in NATO among the Middle East – denies them its airbases for use as launch sites of airstrikes and will not support airstrikes in Syria (after John Kerry visits)
Third, Iraq’s newly-installed US-friendly PM al-Abadi defies the US and halts airstrikes on ISIS-held civilian areas (leaving it up to the US to be the bad guys against his people once again), and
Finally, The USA’s proxy boots-on-the-ground – Syria’s “moderate” rebels – have signed a non-aggression truce with ISIS..
For the past 10 years, I’ve diligently sought to awaken the Church to the fact that the Hebrew prophets point to a Middle Eastern Antichrist who will emerge from the region of Turkey, Syria or Iraq. Some have examined the evidence and recognized the solid scriptural basis for this view. Others have questioned, debated, or even maligned this perspective.
The truth, however, is that although some naysayers have tried to cast this view as a “lone ranger” perspective, in broad historical terms, I have been far from alone in espousing it. In fact, many great Christian expositors have recognized the biblical evidence for this view. Many even foresaw that a last-days caliphate would be established in the region of Turkey, Syria and Iraq. In light of the astounding re-establishment of an Islamic caliphate for the first time in over 80 years in Iraq and Syria, let us consider a few of the great Christian expositors and teachers who foresaw precisely what we are witnessing today.
All of these men of God foresaw the Antichrist and his empire as arising from the same region where we have now witnessed the re-establishment of an Islamic caliphate. All of these men looked to the words of the Hebrew prophets and came to similar conclusions. They foresaw in quite a remarkable way what has now unfolded before all of us. As radical Muslims continue to murder, kidnap, rape, behead, crucify and slaughter their way across the Middle East, now it the time for the Church to wake up and diligently study the Scriptures to discern if all of these events indeed provide us with a genuine harbinger of the coming Antichrist and the soon coming return of Jesus.
`And the ten horns that thou sawest, are ten kings, who a kingdom did not yet receive, but authority as kings the same hour do receive with the beast, 13 these have one mind, and their own power and authority to the beast they shall give over; 14 these with the Lamb shall make war, and the Lamb shall overcome them, because Lord of lords he is, and King of kings, and those with him are called, and choice, and stedfast.’ 15 And he saith to me, `The waters that thou didst see, where the whore doth sit, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues;’ 16 and the ten horns that thou didst see upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her in fire, 17 for God did give into their hearts to do its mind, and to make one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast till the sayings of God may be complete, 18 and the woman that thou didst see is the great city that is having reign over the kings of the land..
After talks in Saudi Arabia’s summer capital Jeddah, Secretary of State John Kerry won backing from 10 Arab countries – Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and six Gulf states including rich rivals Saudi Arabia and Qatar – for a coalition to fight the Sunni militants that have seized swathes of Iraq and Syria.
Nearly fifty senior commanders of a major coalition of Islamic ‘moderates’ opposed to ISIS in Syria have been killed by an explosion at their secret command bunker as they met to discuss strategy against the the Islamic State.
But sure, I can see how an environment of fear is in the best interest of corrupt politicians with a 6% approval rating.
World GDP expectations for 2014 just tumbled to their lowest since estimates started…
It’s not just homeowners who have to worry about rising interest rates, the Federal government might soon get a taste of its own medicine.
The U.S. gross federal debt currently stands at $17.548 trillion, and net interest payments to our creditors are the fastest-growing item in the budget. In 2014, the Congressional Budget Office projects that the nation will spend $233 billion on interest payments. By the end of the budget window in 2024, however, CBO forecasts that interest payments will nearly quadruple to an astonishing $880 billion. Every dollar spent paying our creditors is a dollar wasted—money for which we get nothing in return. Interest payments threaten to crowd out every other budget item.
Professor Cox, 46, said when 2014 EC sideswiped the Earth a few months ago it came dangerously close to wiping us all out.
He said: “We didn’t see it, we saw it on the way out, but if it had just been a bit further over it would have probably wiped us out. These things happen.
Horowitz (1998) was deliberate and unambiguous when he explained the threat of new diseases in his text, Emerging Viruses: AIDS and Ebola – Nature, Accident or Intentional. In his interview with Dr. Robert Strecker in Chapter 7, the discussion, in the early 1970s, made it obvious that the war was between countries that hosted the KGB and the CIA, and the ‘manufacture’ of ‘AIDS-Like Viruses’ was clearly directed at the other. In passing during the Interview, mention was made of Fort Detrick, “the Ebola Building,” and ‘a lot of problems with strange illnesses’ in “Frederick [Maryland].” By Chapter 12 in his text, he had confirmed the existence of an American Military-Medical-Industry that conducts biological weapons tests under the guise of administering vaccinations to control diseases and improve the health of “black Africans overseas.”
The current Ebola virus’s hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice. If certain mutations occurred, it would mean that just breathing would put one at risk of contracting Ebola.
Aviezer said that rather than using the entire tobacco plant, which is how ZMapp is produced, Protalix more efficiently uses just the plant cells.
It’s not just Scotland… or Catalan. As The Guardian reports, polls out in the past few days in France have shown far-right Front National (FN) leader Marine Le Pen topping a presidential poll for the first time. Alongside this surge in support for FN is the utter collapse in the French people’s faith in Hollande. Less than 20% of voters now approve of the French president and stunningly more than half the nation’s card-holding-socialists have given up on him. An unprecedented 85% of French voters don’t think Hollande should seek a second term.
“No poll, no political turmoil will kick me out,” Hollande said after his approval rating fell as low as 13 percent this month.
One word – guillotine?
Today if you are one of the lucky physicists who is supported by mass media you can say anything you want and it will be considered physics fact. You can propose a new imaginary particle and call it the God particle, Devil particle, Angel particle, Ghost particle and even the Destroyer of the Universe Particle. Moreover, you can get government funding and build an accelerator or detector to search for your imaginary particle – preferably before it becomes unstable and destroy the entire Universe.
The above statements are not exaggerated, but the sad reality of theoretical physics today. Well-known theoretical physicists are coming up with theories that even science fiction writers would have considered absurd, just a few decades ago!
One cannot even find the right words to describe what theoretical mathematicians have done to physics. Probabilistic and arbitrary mathematical theories (most of which are mathematically wrong; like the field equations of David Hilbert) have invaded physics since the beginning of the 20th century and inflicted huge damage on scientific progress and human development.
Quantum Mechanics (QM) and Relativity Theory (RT) which are considered physics theories were created by the human imagination rather than scientific observation and without any consideration for cause and effect. Their creation was, of course, due to a lack of understanding of observed phenomena on an atomic, subatomic and cosmological scale and based solely on Newton`s law of gravity. So instead of correcting the defects in Newtonian laws or understanding the physics behind the force of gravity and formulating a truly Universal law – valid on all scales nd explaining all physical phenomena – scientists instead chose an easy way out. Of course they did not question Newton’s laws back then and they continue not to, even today.
I am absolutely certain the most effective method for eliminating the mother of all physics myths (The Big Ban(K) Theory), along with all other associated myths, is to generate fusion power based on the true physics of the Sun.
Producing fusion energy based on the physics of the Sun would not only solve our energy needs, but it would also provide us with a solid foundation for understanding our galaxy and the Universe as a whole.
Russia is pushing back noting that it is using ISIS as a pretext for bombing Syrian government forces and warning that “such a development would lead to a huge escalation of conflict in the Middle East and North Africa.”
^^^Duh… so everyone knew this a long long long time ago. Lol.
So there you have it: Qatar doing everything it can to promote bloodshed, death and destruction by using not Syrian rebels, but mercenaries: professional citizens who are paid handsomely to fight and kill members of the elected regime (unpopular as it may be), for what? So that the unimaginably rich emirs of Qatar can get even richer. Although it is not as if Russia is blameless: all it wants is to preserve its own strategic leverage over Europe by being the biggest external provider of natgas to the continent through its own pipelines. Should Nabucco come into existence, Gazpromia would be very, very angry and make far less money!.
If you like your new strategy, you can keep it… to yourself
Well that didn’t take long. After espousing his strategy last night of leading a broad coalition against ISIS, it appears President Obama’s “allies” are backing away from the plan. As The WSJ reports, Germany and the U.K. on Thursday ruled out carrying out air strikes on Islamic State militants in Syria. It appears the Europeans, realizing the ire that these actions will likely cause to Putin, are stepping back – “We haven’t been asked, nor will we do it,” German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told reporters and his U.K. counterpart Philip Hammond explicitly ruled out air strikes in Syria, after the U.K. parliament struck down such a move last year. So that leaves the French?
It appears the ‘broad coalition’ that President Obama so confidently described just two days ago is crumbling faster than the Iraqi army. First UK and Germany deny support for airstrikes in Syria and now Turkey refuses to allow a U.S.-led coalition to attack jihadists in neighboring Iraq and Syria from its air bases, nor will it take part in combat operations against militants, a government official.
As usual, every European snaction (sic) has an equal and opposite Russian reaction. Here is how the Russian Foreign ministry responded to what van Rompuy announced earlier today would be a new round of Russian sanctions, which wil finally be enforced tomorrow. First from the Russian foreign ministry:
BY PASSING NEW ANTI-RUSSIAN SANCTIONS, EU EFFECTIVELY MADE CHOICE AGAINST PEACE PROCESS IN UKRAINE – RUSSIAN FOREIGN MINISTRY’S STATEMENT
And from Russia’s European ambassador:
NEW EU SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA LEAVE RUSSIA NO OTHER CHOICE BUT
TO GO FOR CERTAIN COUNTER-MEASURES – RUSSIA’S PERMANENT REP TO THE EU
EU SANCTIONS AGAINST RUSSIA DEVOID OF ELEMENTARY LOGIC, COMING SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH DE-ESCALATION OF UKRAINIAN CRISIS – RUSSIA’S AMBASSADOR TO EU CHIZHOV
Below is the official statement, Google-translated:
In connection with the statement of the President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy from September 11 regarding the introduction of a new package of anti-Russian sanctions, we can state the following.
By taking this step, the EU has actually made a choice against the peaceful settlement of the Ukrainian domestic crisis, whose support was expected of all responsible powers in Europe.
Today Brussels and heads of EU member states should give a clear answer to the citizens of the European Union why they put them at risk of confrontation, economic stagnation and the loss of jobs.
And the punchline:
Finally, give peace a chance.
So Obama channels Dubya and Putin channels John Lennon. The New Normal sure is strange.
Sometimes glitches in the matrix such as this one make one wonder just how much of what is going on right now between the “west” and Russia has been long pre-agreed and pre-approved by the “feuding” sides, and what is really going on behind the scenes.
Still, had the free trade deal passed today, it would have allowed the economically devastated Ukraine, whose economy is rapidly imploding, to boost its exports to Europe by one billion euros per year, according to the commission.
In June, the EU and Ukraine signed the long-delayed Association Agreement, the very deal whose 11th-hour refusal last year by then president Viktor Yanukovich plunged the former Soviet country into chaos. It sparked a wave of pro-European protests that eventually toppled the Kremlin-backed Yanukovich in February and ushered in a pro-Western government that deeply angered Moscow.
What goes unsaid is that the signed agreement was merely yet another optical pseudo intervention: in reality is provided nothing to Ukraine but simply sent signals to the global community that the “west” had the upper hand when it comes down to Kiev realpolitik.
If only for now.
Of the 3 million long-term jobless today, about one-third have been unemployed for more than two years, Labor Department data show. A small minority — roughly 100,000 Americans like Perry — have been actively looking for at least five years.
When Barack Obama was first elected in 2008, he was constantly pictured with an angelic glow surrounding him. Artists would frequently draw him with a halo surrounding his head.
He was the Liberal Messiah for a lost and dying world. But something changed along the way. Halos have given way to horns. Scary, dark, nasty looking horns.
And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;
Stay safe, everybody. The idea of 12 missing commercial airliners in the hands of terror groups who hate America should be more than enough cause for you to double check your preparedness plans before 9/11.
Senior military intelligence believes U.S. cities might be targeted by these weaponized aircraft on September 11. I don’t think they have any specific intelligence claiming such attacks will take place, but they recognize the threat (as do I). With twelve jets, twelve U.S. cities could be simultaneously targeted by whatever weapons of mass destruction the terrorists can come up with. If only half of those attacks made it through, a six-city attack would still be absolutely devastating to America (which is what the terrorists want).
Because of flight path proximity, the most likely cities to be targeted by terrorists flying commercial jets would reside on the East Coast of the United States. Therefore, it’s only logical to conclude that the most likely city targets would include New York, Washington D.C., Boston, Miami, Philadelphia and so on.
This is a plan being carried out with precision.
“We should go to DEFCON 1, our highest state of readiness, and be prepared as we lead up to 9/11,” stated retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerney.
Sorry General, have to disagree with you that Obama’s narrative is 3 years behind. You are assuming that he actually wants to eliminate the ISIS threat. He doesn’t…he is intentionally helping create this terrorist threat because he is a terrorist himself and wants to use the threat to further his plan to bring our country under his thumb. His agenda is right on time.
ISIS would not have risen like they have without our help. We created this problem, directly or indirectly.
When September 11th is mentioned nowadays, thoughts normally travel to New York and the events at the World Trade Center in 2001, in addition to the Pentagon and Pennsylvania. This was not the first time, however, for September 11th to be an important date with regard to the Pentagon. On September 11, 1941, ground was broken in Arlington County, Virginia for the Pentagon, home of the United States Department of Defense.
In July 1941, Adolf Hitler made President Franklin D. Roosevelt very nervous. Due to the vast control Hitler then held over Europe and his surprise attack on Russia, FDR declared a national emergency on May 27th and the War Department in Washington began to grow by leaps and bounds.
A senior Homeland Security (DHS) official confirmed to Congress on Wednesday that militants associated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) are planning to enter the United States via the porous southern border.
Francis Taylor, under secretary for intelligence and analysis at DHS, told senators during a hearing that ISIL supporters are known to be plotting ways to infiltrate the United States through the border.
They formed the PNAC in 1997 And published “RAD” in September 2000. Determined to have their world empire, they offered an eerie prophecy on page 52 of that document about how it might be accomplished, “Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor.” Their dream of a catalyzing event could not have been better actualized than in the events of 9/11.
^^^This is what really happened. They used a plane as cover, but what was heard flying right behind the plane that obviously flew over the Pentagon was what really hit the Pentagon. At the scene it was clear that the hole was way too small and there was no impact from the wings marked on the wall.
It looks like capitalism today can’t perform by producing increases in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), increases in wages and salaries, and so it essentially becomes a looting mechanism. Therefore it will discredit itself just like Soviet central planning discredited itself.
The 9/11 lie has persisted for 13 years. Millions of Muslims have paid for this lie with their lives, the destruction of their families, and with their dislocation. Most Americans remain comfortable with the fact that their government has destroyed in whole or part seven countries based on a lie Washington told to cover up an inside job that launched the crazed neoconservatives’ drive for Washington’s World Empire.
The magazine reporter said he was known as “Abu Omar the hitter” and had told him how he had enjoyed raping a woman before slitting her throat and killing her baby. “It’s such a pleasure to cut off a baby’s head,” Mr Hénin quoted him as saying.
Initially, the anthrax letters, which caused the deaths of some USPS employees, were seen as the second stage of the 9/11 attack. Fear multiplied. The senators and media shut up. Then it was discovered that the anthrax was a unique kind produced only by a US government military facility.
The response to this monkey wrench thrown into the government’s propaganda, was the FBI’s frame-up of a dead man, Bruce Edwards Ivins, who had been employed in the military lab that produced the anthrax and was driven to suicide by the false charges. The dead man’s colleagues did not believe one word of the government’s false story, and nothing in the dead man’s past indicated any motive or instability that would have led him to such a deed.
Initially, the US government tried to frame up Steven Jay Hatfill, but despite the best efforts of the New York Times and Nicholas Kristof the attempt to frame Hatfill failed. Hatfill received $5 million from the US government for the false accusation that ruined his life. So the corrupt US government moved on to Ivins.
Ivins was dead and couldn’t defend himself, but his colleagues did.
The entire episode stinks to high heaven. Justice is something that exists outside the borders of the United States. Never expect to find justice within the United States.
With your drums and guns and guns and drums, hurroo, hurroo
With your drums and guns and guns and drums, hurroo, hurroo
With your drums and guns and guns and drums
The enemy nearly slew ye
Oh my darling dear, Ye look so queer
Johnny I hardly knew ye…..
This memorable stanza from the classic anti-war song could not be more apt with respect to Barack Obozo..
After all, just hours before the President delivered up his 13 minutes of vaporous rhetoric, double-talk and self-contradiction, the Homeland Security Department had testified on capitol hill that it had no evidence that ISIS was planning an attack on US territory or had the capacity to accomplish one. The closest it could come to identifying a tangible ISIS threat was chatter on Twitter.
Likewise, isn’t it breathtaking that in the blood-soaked wreckage of the non-nation of Syria, which was scribbled on a map by dandies in the British and French foreign offices in 1916, we are now attempting to eliminate two regimes at the same time? Never mind that the Assad-Alawites in the southwest and the ISIS-Sunni in the north and east between them control 90 percent of Syrian territory.
So instead of boots on the ground to secure the dusty villages, bleak desert expanses and other pointless redoubts which will be bombed back into the stone age by Obama’s aerial campaign, we will arm and train the Free Syrian Army to do the job of killing off the stragglers. That is, mop-up the fanatical ISIS fighters before they can regroup and launch furious campaigns of revenge throughout the region or even at the American homeland.
That’s right. The silly, naïve man in the oval office has signed up to a bombing campaign which will enrage the hordes of medieval butchers encamped in the Islamic State, hoping that a rag-tag bunch of buccaneers that mostly issue press releases from Turkey, and which recently sold one of the beheaded Americans to ISIS for $50,000 according to the public testimony of his best friend and confidant, will keep them contained and finish off the job.
In a sane world, this would be considered an impeachable madness.
“Christians have no greater ally than Israel,” he said, at which point members of the crowd began to yell “stop it” and booed him.
It could arrive as early as this afternoon Australian time, or may take a few days.
Scientists will have a better idea after they get more satellite data.
here are currently two Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) heading toward our planet and their combined arrival is expected to spark severe geomagnetic storms.
The first one, released by the long duration M4.5 solar flare on September 9, is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field early on Friday, September 12, bringing quiet to major storm (G2 – Moderate) conditions at mid-latitudes, with isolated severe storm conditions at high latitudes. CME from yesterday’s full halo X-class solar flare is closely following and is expected to arrive later in the day pushing conditions to the severe storm level (G3 – Strong) by the beginning of Saturday, September 13.
Storming is expected to continue into September 14th although not that strong. Keep in mind that all times are in Coordinated Universal Time – UTC, also known as GMT and Zulu Time.
Both models show the plume colliding with the U.S. West Coast and beginning to spread out starting around late 2017, with a maximum concentration of radiation hitting the coast toward the end of 2018.
Since the catastrophic meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear power plant in March of 2011 irreparably altered the state of the planet for the known future, the incident has been shrouded in nothing but bureaucratic cover ups and government-backed disinformation. Now, within our own borders, top experts turned whistleblowers are warning of a nuclear nightmare that could surpass Fukushima and Chernobyl alike by leaps and bounds.
Initially listed as a Level 4 incident on the International Nuclear Event Scale, pressure from scientists on an international level ultimately led to Fukushima’s classification as a maximum Level 7 accident within the INES system — with some suggesting an entirely new level was needed to describe the true impact and atrocity of the nuclear meltdown. Now, even after witnessing what happens when a major power plant is placed within the crosshairs of earthquake activity, a ‘new Fukushima’ is sitting off the Central Coast within California’s Diablo Canyon.
And top level nuclear experts, including a senior federal nuclear inspector turned whistleblower, are warning that the California-based plant is a sitting radioactive duck amid the nearby faults that have actually been found to be more dangerous than previously thought. Back in 2008, a new fault known as the Shoreline fault was discovered just offshore from the Diablo Canyon nuclear facility: a discovery that truly changes everything about the ‘safety’ of the California plant.
Deasy has developed a workshop she is pitching to local churches to discuss the impacts of emerging technology and how it could influence society and faith all over the globe.
This all might all seem like the stuff of science fiction. Then again, at one time so was genetic engineering and 3-D printing.
“It’s hard for some people to really see that this isn’t fiction,” said Deasy. “The technology and the advances that are coming are increasingly turning fiction into fact.”
Addressing a Kremlin meeting on weapons modernization plans, Putin said the West shouldn’t be surprised about Moscow’s efforts in view of U.S. missile defence plans and other decisions he said have threatened Russia’s security.
“We have warned many times that we would have to take corresponding countermeasures to ensure our security,” Putin said, adding that he would now take personal charge of the government commission that oversees military industries.
As if the world needed more evidence of the intellectual capacity of the people bringing you Abenomics every day. That said, with loonies running the show, something tells us those 53% of Chinese respondents expecting war in the near and not-so-near future, will be 100% right.
Even the human rights organization Amnesty International has expressed concern over the arming of the police. the police are there to protect the government – not the people. That is a dangerous position that sets the stage for civil war.
