“This type of activity would have been expected in 2007, when Uranus’s once every 42-year equinox occurred and the sun shined directly on the equator,” noted co-investigator Heidi Hammel of the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy. “But we predicted that such activity would have died down by now. Why we see these incredible storms now is beyond anybody’s guess.”

The Beast and His Armies Defeated
17 Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God,[h] 18 that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free[i] and slave, both small and great.”
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.
King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, sixty cubits high and six cubits wide,[p] and set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon. 2 He then summoned the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates and all the other provincial officials to come to the dedication of the image he had set up. 3 So the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates and all the other provincial officials assembled for the dedication of the image that King Nebuchadnezzar had set up, and they stood before it.
4 Then the herald loudly proclaimed, “Nations and peoples of every language, this is what you are commanded to do: 5 As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipe and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. 6 Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace.”
The news that a Koran had been desecrated (though seemingly false, and burning the Holy Bible by Antichrist muslim bastards calls Christians to pray for the dipshits so the fools might be saved at some point in their life because the mercy of our Father in Christ, written in the Holy Bible they burned does not allow Saints to burn anyone alive in a furnace like some evil ”(a)lla has no Son” Islamic bastard) traveled quickly to the local mosque and a mob soon arrived at the place where the couple ws being held. The mob forced their way into the room, violently beat the Masihs and then burned them alive in the furnace of a kiln.
Shahzad’s father recently died and so his wife collected some of his things and burned them before throwing the ashes in the garbage. Shahzad’s employer to whom they owed money charged that he had seen them burning the Koran and unless they paid him the money they owed – he would not let them go.
^^^CONSIDER THIS WHEN THE ANTICHRIST MUSLIMS ARE INVITED AND ALLOWED TO OFFER THEIR ANTICHRIST PRAYER IN THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL THIS FRIDAY IN D.C. ON 11/14/2014. CAN ANYONE IMAGINE ANTICHRIST MUSLIMS INVITING CHRISTIANS TO PRAY IN MECCA THAT MUSLIMS BECOME THE CHRISTIANS THEIR KORAN WANTS DEAD IF CHRISTIANS DO NOT AGREE AND ACCEPT ANTICHRIST ISLAM?
…having been given a prophetic dream from our Father in Christ, where in a pillar of fire came down upon D.C., after a storm first came and then became destructive, yet the people were not moved by the storm or the pillar of fire and remained seated as they were, and having been inspired to pray for an earthquake to shut down the 666 Washington Monument, after it was described as the symbol of America that was still open for business, and also considering the affect should come even upon the National Cathedral… as a shaking to wake people up so they are at least inspired to consider the prophetic Holy Spirit revelation upon this generation and be(come up hither) so moved and risen in agreement.
…what can be said at this point, other than; ”watch” and ”be so moved in agreement with the mercy of our Father in Christ”, you remnant of the harvest that may even labor the last to be gleaned of the field? The prophetic strong delusion is obviously poured out among all the nations. The Truth, as it is written; when the gospel of our Father in Christ shall be preached among all nations, then shall the end come, now measures and exposes the shadows cast of this final generation of Tares among the Wheat. In the name of our Father in Christ fear not, judgment cometh upon the heads of all hosts in contempt of their own salvation. Salvation, Yahshua, offered as the gift risen among the Saints, The Eternal Love, among the Saints at rest in peace with our Father in Christ. Do not be shaken or caught up in the storm because you are at rest and at peace with the world.
Do not the nations now all stand in contempt, even as they were …become Babylon’s furnace burning, if possible, all flesh should be destroyed upon our horizon? The prophetic revelation is ”YES”! To remain so unmoved, as the earth quakes under your feet, is to stand fast in the furnace of Babylon willfully, and:
…in silence, as branches cast into Hell on Earth …by; the likes of, and in the image of, The Antichrist, …muslims etc.. you invited to pray in your own home …and they pray for it’s destruction and your death, because you accept the sustaining mercy of our Father in Christ they reject and they must prove themselves in agreement with the evil antichrist image of their claim above our Father in Christ by murdering you etc… and everyone that disagrees with their Antichrist (a)llah,
…to stand in contempt of salvation.
The World ”IS” Israel to them, and everyone is a Jew in Jerusalem; which they ”want”, like the Whore of Babylon riding the Beast straight to Hell on Earth, and they mean to take it violently by force; like Nazis that cast people into the furnace (as it were Saints in Babylon that refused to worship the image of the Antichrist Beast) like branches.
The day that Barack Hussein Obozo took the oath of office, in January of 2009, was the day that the sun set on America. I never thought the country would ever see a President as corrupt, immoral and incompetent as Woodrow Wilson. After all, in 1913, Wilson worked towards eliminating tariffs, the American government’s mainstay of economic support since the country’s inception.Wilson, on behalf the globalists, replaced tariffs with the corrupt and unconstitutional income tax and of course the Federal Reserve which has eroded the dollar to a net value of 3 cents of worth today. Wilson lied us into World War I, he jailed legitimate protesters and he helped make it possible to usher in the direct election of senators which handed over the Senate to the globalists. Wilson even tried to sacrifice the nation’s sovereignty by handing over our nation’s political authority to the League of Nations which was the globalist’s first attempt at world governance and he would have succeeded had it not been for the Ron Paul of his day, Henry Cabot Lodge. I never thought that there could be anybody worse for the country than Woodrow Wilson, until now. Obozo is the most treasonous and destructive force to ever occupy the White House.
According to the report from the State Department, Russia has 528 carriers of strategic nuclear weapons that carry 1,643 warheads. The United States has 794 vehicles and 1,652 nuclear warheads.
It just so happens that today, Russia’s strategic nuclear forces (SNF) are even more advanced in comparison with those of the US, as they ensure parity on warheads with a significantly smaller number of carriers of strategic nuclear weapons. This gap between Russia and the United States may only grow in the future, given the fact that Russian defense officials promised to rearm Russia’s SNF with new generation missiles.
The progress was made possible thanks to the treaty on the limitation of nuclear weapons, also known as START-3. The treaty was signed by Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama on 8 April 2010 in Prague (came into force on 5 February 2011). In accordance with the document, nuclear warheads of the parties are to be reduced to 1,550 by 2021. The number of carriers (intercontinental ballistic missiles, submarine-launched ballistic missiles and heavy bombers) is supposed to be cut to 700 units.
It was the first strategic agreement, after the treacherous policy of democrats, in which Russia managed to win significant advantages. In the treaty, the Americans, for the first time in history, undertook to reduce their strategic nuclear potential, while Russia won an opportunity to increase it. Furthermore, the new treaty removed important limitations that existed in the previous START 1 and START 2 treaties. It goes about the size of areas for the deployment of mobile ICBMs, the number of multi charge ICBMs, and the possibility to build railway-based ICBMs. Russia did not make any concessions.
Having written off Moscow as a serious geopolitical rival, flying on the wings of inaccessible military and technological superiority, Washington drove itself into a trap, from which it does not see a way out even in a medium-term perspective.
WORLD WAR III: Russia Reaches Parity With U.S. In Strategic Nuclear Weapons For The First Time Since The Collapse Of The Soviet Union – Putin Prepares Nuclear Surprise For NATO; Plans Long-Range Bomber Flights Near U.S. Shores; Sends Flotilla Bound For G20 In Australia!
The attacks are coming from all sides – this is asymmetric warfare against the American people.
When we talk about tyranny we often associate it with images of Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin. But as Bill Whittle notes in the following Firewall commentary, in modern-day America tyranny manifests in many different forms and takes on many different faces.
And unlike despots of the past, the faces of modern day tyrants are smiling and look completely innocent, but their sinister intentions can be seen by their actions.
They have, as Whittle warns, weaponized the government with the end game being the complete stifling of free speech. Because once they shut down the flow of information and open discourse it is they who will control the narrative.
What in the world is happening to this country?
Officials in the federal government cannot harass and intimidate media personalities just because they do not like what they are saying.
By doing so, they are breaking the law. And if the full truth about this ever came out, it could prove to be one of the greatest scandals in American political history.
Someone is attempting to harass and intimidate media personalities that are very critical of Barack Obama and his administration. Whoever is doing this has extremely advanced technical capabilities.
As you will see below, there is very strong anecdotal evidence that federal agents are involved. But these agents would never commit such actions on their own. It seems clear that they are getting orders from someone above them.
Of course Barack Obama (or any of his top lieutenants) would never come out and publicly admit that Gestapo tactics are being used against media personalities on Obama’s rumored “enemies list”, but that appears to be precisely what is happening.
Now ask yourself a question. Is the FBI any more ethical today than it was back then? I would argue certainly not. After all, it had a file on on tech prodigy Aaron Swartz, who was driven to suicide by the feds. Now imagine what the FBI could do to political dissidents in a world in which they have a backdoor into all your electronic devices, which is precisely what it wants.
So the next time you think to yourself “so what, I have nothing to hide,” think again. You don’t know what the future holds, do you really want the status quo to have everything you’ve ever done or said accessible in an electronic file on you? What about the threat this poses to other people who put themselves in the arena of fighting for social change? Do you want the FBI to be able to do to them what they did to MLK but 10x worse? Think deeply about that.
Martin Luther King: “Everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was Legal.”
Naturally, a man that utters such words and who also has a considerable following would not appeal to the thug in charge of the FBI at the time, J. Edgar Hoover. So what did Mr. Hoover do? He sent a letter to Dr. King, pretending to be a black person and implied that he should kill himself. None of this is news, but until the New York Times released it yesterday, copies of this letter had always been partly redacted. We now have the uncensored version. Here it is:
According to the FBI’s annual Uniform Crime Report, 461 felony suspects were shot by police last year, which is the highest number seen in decades. These numbers are likely unreported as well, and only includes felony suspects, so it is possible that this figure is much higher than the study suggests. Another interesting angle is that in the same time period gun sales soared across the country, which seems to support the idea that more people owning guns actually contributes to making society a safer place.
According to new FBI statistics released this week, violent crime rates in the US fell over 4% in the past year alone, bringing the amount of violent crimes lower than it has been in nearly 40 years. The statistics showed that there were an estimated 1.16 million violent crimes in the year of 2013, which is the lowest number since 1978, when 1.09 million were recorded.
Broken down, the report revealed that manslaughter dropped by 4.4% to 14,196, the lowest rate since 1968, while instances of rape were down 6.3%. Despite the tough economic times, robbery is also down by 2.8% and property crimes were down by 4.1%.
The violent crime rate has been steadily declining since 1994, but the prison population has continued to increase over the decades. There are currently over two and a half million people imprisoned in the US, which is by far the largest prison population in the world.
However, a study recently published by Pew Charitable Trusts showed that for the first time in decades, the US prison population is actually on a decline. Their research found that the drop in crime that was seen in 2013 actually coincided with a decline in the prison population. According to their data, the amount of people in the US prison system peaked in 2008, and has since dropped 6%.
Scientists have created a mind-control system that allows a person to alter the genes in a mouse through the power of thought alone.
The approach fuses the latest advances in cybernetics with those in synthetic biology by connecting a wireless headset that monitors brainwaves to an implant in the mouse that can change the rodent’s genes.
A person wearing the device could alter how much protein was made from a gene in the mouse by changing his or her state of mind from concentrating to relaxed or vice-versa. With practice, volunteers found that they could turn the gene on or off in the mouse at will, and thereby raise or lower the levels of protein circulating in the animal’s blood system.
The experiment could lead to the development of a radical new approach to the treatment of diseases. Scientists hope it is a first step towards the development of a system that will monitor brainwaves for signs of illnesses and automatically release medicines into the body to treat them.
How much exercise should I get today? How much coffee can I drink on Monday? These are questions you might ask yourself, not really expecting an actual response, but if IBM has its way, its Watson supercomputer will soon be able to supply the answers.
IBM’s Watson Group today announced an undisclosed investment in Pathway Genomics to create the first cognitive consumer app based on a user’s genetic makeup.
Citing research on genomic medicine, IBM said the bioinformatics market is expected to grow to $12.86 billion by 2020. Few consumers, however, have access to or can benefit from personalized wellness-related recommendations tailored to their individual needs. Which is where IBM and Pathway Genomics come in. By leveraging the natural language processing and cognitive capabilities of Watson, consumers will be able to “Ask Watson” for insights, based on their own genes, wearable data, and other wellness information, like emotional, physical, and social well being.
…BUT! THINK REAL HARD ABOUT WHAT HUMANITY ”IS” NOW WITNESSING!
A soulless 666 Supreme Court Citizen’s United HAL 9000/Watson Algo combined with the Antichrist NWO global borderless agenda, that has now established the obvious prophetic tribulation end time generation condition at hand, can establish a ”CHANGE” of the entire human, as it were, ”program”. HAL/Watson, of course, does not open the pod bay doors after murdering a human. Like a scifi movie, history has confirmed the human slaughter required of the power that has claimed false dominion on Earth. The fact that now DNA can be altered, like some evil occult satanic ”you shall not surely die” bastard using a computer mouse to altar DNA, like an algo bot front running a human flesh market as if humanity is a physical mouse captured in a prison planet matrix called Earth.
At this point, if you do not know our Father in Christ, and the blessing of His written prophetic revelation that is now being completely fulfilled, you shall go through tribulation lost and subject to the final effort to awaken you. Your chances of not escaping the unbecoming reality of tribulation and being risen in agreement unto your eternal salvation, …well, think about it. Consider, this is the time of the Tetrad and Sabbatical Year, which shall end in 2015 on the last Blood Moon, that falls on the Feast Of Tabernacles, ending 6000 years from Adam when measuring 120 50 year jubilees. YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME TO WASTE. Hope you do not die today, having heard witness of our Father in Christ and then not accepting His sustaining mercy, because you shall surely perish without having accepted the sustaining mercy of our Father in Christ whom would call you up to your eternal salvation.
“I think it is very Orwellian.”
McIntyre said the tech industry is likely very close to being able to produce a brain implant, but industry insiders know they still have much work to do in terms of public acceptance for their radical ideas. That could be one of the reasons why Cisco conducted its study – to get a feel for how close the market is to accepting such a product.
“They’re not far, because we already have devices that can be implanted in the body,” McIntyre said. “I think the main barrier to that (brain implant) is public acceptance, and I question the study by Cisco because they have a vested interest. The more people they can portray as being accepting of this, the better it is for them.”
The study posed dozens of technology-related questions to professionals in 15 countries including the U.S., Japan, China, Russia and France.
“I really think it’s the cool factor. When they see something that’s cutting-edge, they really don’t stop to think about the implications,” said Liz McIntyre, a privacy expert and co-author of the book, “Spychips: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Purchase and Watch Your Every Move.”
“Especially people who work in technology but also just average people, I think they look at the cool factor and they don’t stop to look at the implications for themselves like their privacy and civil liberties, never mind the bigger picture for all of society,” McIntyre said. “It’s part of this whole wave now where the (tech) industry feels like they have an in, and they’re going to push it right through on the cool factor.”
She said many people have become “brainwashed by the industry” to the point where they think they can’t live without being connected to the Internet.
“Look at all the people carrying smartphones; those are tracking devices,” McIntyre said. “What’s the next step? We already have singularity. Having sensors implanted in people everywhere will be the next step.”
According to a survey by tech giant Cisco Systems, about a fourth of professionals ages 18 to 50 would leap at the chance to get a surgical brain implant that allowed them to instantly link their thoughts to the Internet.
All commercial products have sensors, and some day all people could be implanted with brain chips, allowing the people to interact with the products and with each other in a whole new way. To many, that sounds like a brave new world that’s both exhilarating and terrifying at the same time.
“So you will have a God-like feeling of how people are thinking and feeling at all times. It will get to a —–>>>point where you won’t have a choice. <<<—-
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
[Japan is now conducting] a laboratory experiment… [and] Governor Kuroda’s monetary experiment has in effect morphed into a strategy of devaluation plus financial repression.
But Davies isn’t alone in highlighting the sheer madness of Kuroda’s latest move.
However, leave it to David Stockman — one of the shoutiest sane people you’ll ever come across — to dispense with journalistic niceties.
In a piece entitled The BOJ Jumps the Monetary Shark — Now the Machines, Madmen and Morons Are Raging, Stockman takes Kuroda and the BoJ to task as only he can:
This is just plain sick. Hardly a day after the greatest central bank fraudster of all time, Maestro Greenspan, confessed that QE has not helped the main street economy and jobs, the lunatics at the BOJ flat-out jumped the monetary shark. Even then, the madman Kuroda pulled off his incendiary maneuver by a bare 5-4 vote. Apparently the dissenters — Messrs. Morimoto, Ishida, Sato and Kiuchi — are only semi-mad.
Never mind that the BOJ … balance sheet which had previously exploded to nearly 50% of Japan’s national income or more than double the already mind-boggling US ratio of 25%.
In fact, this was just the beginning of a Ponzi scheme so vast that in a matter of seconds it ignited the Japanese stock averages by 5%. And here’s the reason: Japan Inc. is fixing to inject a massive bid into the stock market based on a monumental emission of central bank credit created out of thin air. So doing, it has generated the greatest frontrunning frenzy ever recorded.
The scheme is so insane that the surge of markets around the world in response to the BOJ’s announcement is proof positive that the mother of all central bank bubbles now envelopes the entire globe.
The “surge of markets” to which Stockman refers illustrates the madness that has consumed both equity and bond markets in the wake of the 2008 ceding of custody of formerly free markets to the world’s central banks.
What does this mean in real(ish) money? Well that’s about $720 billion. Sounds OK, right? After all, TARP was $787 billion, and that hasn’t done any damage whatsoever, has it?
However, there’s this age-old problem with comparing apples to oranges; and so, once we get our citrus fruits straight and convert the BOJ’s stimulus to a number proportionate to the larger economy of the USA, we find ourselves staring at the equivalent of the BoJ’s splashing out almost $3 trillion. Each year.
JP Morgan swiftly pointed out that this means the BoJ will be buying more than double the amount of new JGBs issued by the government.
Yes. You read that right. Double the total new government issuance. The Fed are lightweights compared to this mob.
But this is just the beginning.
The BoJ will also triple its purchases of ETFs and J-REITs (yes, direct intervention by a Central Bank into the stock market is now not something to be afraid of, but rather embraced) which will make the BoJ the largest buyer of Japanese equities.
Kuroda has fired the shot that looks likely to trigger the next phase of the crazy monetary experiment we’ve all been living in for the last five years. Unfortunately, the next phase is where things start to get nasty. Just because equity markets cheered the latest sugar rush he guaranteed them should not make smart investors lower their guard — quite the opposite, in fact.
Colonel Kuroda has gone up-country into the Heart of Darkness, and all we can do is await the Apocalypse now.

WTI Crude plunged another 3.75% to as low as $74.06 today – the lowest since Sept 2010 and dropping at the fastest rate of collapse since Lehman. Airlines popped and Energy stocks dropped 2.7% (now worst sector of the year) but Small Caps were the worst performing major index of the day (turning first around 1030ET and dropping most in over 3 weeks). The S&P tested back into the red for the week but was VWAP-rescued twice. AAPL once again bid saved the Nasdaq. Treasury yields slid lower all day (down 2-3bps across the complex) but remain up 4-5bps on the week. The USD weakened very marginally (still up 0.25% on the week) led by EUR strength. Gold and silver were flat but copper tumbled back below $300 – its lowest close in a month (near lowest close since Jul 2010). HY Credit diverged bearishly this afternoon as stocks ramped to VWAP. VIX rose for the 3rd day in a row, back over 14. Dow record close, Russell biggest drop in 3 weeks.
It was a weak day in stocks… so what do u think happened to trading volume… But of course, it wouldn’t be the US equity market without a late-day panic buying algo surge to VWAP??!!
Bonus Bonus Bonus Chart: Today marked the 20th day in a row that the S&P has closed above its 5-day moving average. MKM’s Jonathan Krinsky notes this length of streak has only happened 3 other times in the past 20 years.. and each time the 5DMA was broken, it was followed by a sell off (2/14/96 -2.3% in 2 weeks, 7/2198 -14.66% in 6 weeks, 12/3/96 -2.97% in 2 weeks)
When it comes to the fair value of assets, especially cash-flow generating real estate, few are as qualified to opine as the man dubbed “World’s Richest Restaurateur”, billionaire Tilman Fertitta, chairman of Landry’s Restaurants which counts among its properties such brand names as Morton’s, Rainforest Cafe, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., McCormick & Schmick’s, Saltgrass Steak House, Claim Jumper, Chart House, The Oceanaire, Mastro’s Restaurants, Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse and many more.
Which is why his dire warning about the state of the “crazy” US real estate market, which he believes set for an imminent crash, are likely worth keeping in mind as all the panglossian permabulls see nothing but a 4th dead housing cat rebound ahead. That, and his take on inflation: “There is huge inflation going on right now.”
From his interview on Bloomberg TV yesterday:
Fertitta: You are seeing crazy numbers from real estate. You are seeing it New York probably more than anywhere else; you are seeing it in Texas; you are seeing it in California. History always repeats itself, but I think it’s going to repeat a little sooner this time. You see it coming.
Q. You smell a crash in the real estate market?
Fertitta: Absolutely I do. I can see it in Houston right now.
Q. It’s going to be 1986 all over again?
Fertitta: Absolutely. It didn’t come back in Texas until 1996, it took 10 years for it to happen in Texas.
For all those who see nothing but blue skies from falling crude prices, here is Fertitta’s contrarian view: “Oil needs to hit $50/barrell for it to cause a total crash.”
Finally, for the deflation truthers, here is what Fertitta had to say about inflation:
Ben Bernanke was at Rich Handler’s house and he says “there’ no inflation.” Well go buy something, whether at the grocery store, the drug store, the broom and mop store, and there is inflation everywhere. I have so many types of businesses so I buy everything from labor, to mops, to food, to shrimp, to stake and everything is more expensive. We are raising prices: that’s why right now you pay more for an airline ticket, you pay more for a hotel room, you pay more for a pot of coffee. There is huge inflation going on right now.
Somehow we doubt he will appear on CNBC any time soon.
The relentless regurgitation of the only two rumors that have moved markets this week, namely the Japanese sales tax delay and the “surprise” cabinet snap elections, was once again all over the newswires last night in yet another iteration, and as a result the headline scanning algos took the Nikkei another 1.1% higher to nearly 17,400 which means at this rate the Nikkei will surpass the Dow Jones by the end of the week helped by further reports that Japan will reveal more stimulus measures on November 19, although with US equity futures rising another 7 points overnight and now just shy of 2050 which happens to be Goldman’s revised year-end target, the US will hardly complain.
And speaking of stimulus, the reason European equities are drifting higher following the latest ECB professional forecast release which saw the panel slash their GDP and inflation forecasts for the entire period from 2014 to 2016. In other words bad news most certainly continues to be good news for stocks, which in the US are about to hit another record high, with the bulk of the upside action once again concentrated between 11:00 and 11:30am.
Every [or In one] year King Solomon received ·about fifty thousand pounds [L 666 talents] of gold. 15 Besides that, he also received gold from the traders and merchants, as well as from the kings of Arabia and governors of the ·land [territories; provinces].
Just as China is buying ‘cheap’ oil with both hands and feet, so Russia, according to the latest data from The World Gold Council (WGC) has been buying gold in huge size. Dwarfing the rest of the world’s buying in Q3, Russia added a stunning 55 tonnes to its reserves, as The Telegraph reports, Putin is taking advantage of lower gold prices to pack the vaults of Russia’s central bank with bullion as it “prepares for the possibility of a long, drawn-out economic war with the West.”
Bottom line: Russia bought more gold in Q3 then all other countries combined (of course, nobody know what or how much China is buying)

Come now, you rich [people], weep aloud and lament over the miseries (the woes) that are surely coming upon you. 2 Your abundant wealth has rotted and is ruined, and your [many] garments have become moth-eaten. 3 Your gold and silver are completely rusted through, and their rust will be testimony against you and it will devour your flesh as if it were fire. You have heaped together treasure for the last days. 4 [But] look! [Here are] the wages that you have withheld by fraud from the laborers who have reaped your fields, crying out [for vengeance]; and the cries of the harvesters have come to the ears of the Lord of hosts
Throughout history, in most cases of economic collapse the societies in question believed they were financially invincible just before their disastrous fall. Rarely does anyone see the edge of the cliff or even the bottom of the abyss before it has swallowed a nation whole. This lack of foresight, however, is not entirely the fault of the public. It is, rather, a consequence caused by the manipulation of the fundamental information available to the public by governments and social gatekeepers.
It is now highly likely that the IMF will set policy WITHOUT the input of the U.S., as they have warned they would, crippling the assumptions by many that the IMF is somehow a “U.S.-owned institution.” It is actually the reverse; the IMF is setting the stage for ownership of the U.S. monetary structure, along with the Bank Of International Settlements, which appears to be the capstone of the NWO system.

I believe that one of those things will be the coming of Gog and Magog against Israel. And THAT will trigger Ezekiel’s Fire. The massive solar flare that I call Ezekiel’s Fire will devastate the world, and you do NOT want to be caught in that. And, I am currently spending every bit of time that I have to document my understanding on that event here:
In a media briefing held at ESOC today, ESA confirmed “Philae” lander is alive and operational after three touchdowns on Comet 67/P, located some 511 million kilometers away from Earth. First analysis of the touchdown data suggests that the lander bounced twice before settling on the surface of the comet. The lander remains unanchored to the surface, but the instruments are running and are delivering images and data.
Awesome time-lapse video features show 15 days of solar action from October 14th to 30th, 2014, showing sunspot AR 2192, the largest sunspot of the last two solar cycles or more than two decades. During the transition time Sunspot 2191 produced six X-class and four M-class solar flares.
The animation shows the sun in the ultraviolet 304 ångström wavelength, and plays at a rate of 52.5 minutes per second. It is composed of more than 17,000 images, 72 GB of data produced by the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO). The animation has been rotated 180 degrees so that south is “up”.
An intense swarm of earthquakes that started on July 12, 2014, is still shaking sparsely populated region of northwest Nevada, USA and is intensifying. The latest in series was a shallow M4.6 (USGS) earthquake registered at 06:36 UTC today. Its epicenter was 63 km (39 miles) ESE of Lakeview and 173 km (107 miles) E of Altamont, Oregon.

As most of the USA shivers with abnormally cold temperatures in early November, Rick talks with long-range weather forecaster Dr. Piers Corbyn in Great Britain about the likelihood of a new mini-ice age. Raymond Ibrahim, author of Crucified Again, talks with Rick about how Islam is colonizing the West with the support of Barack Obozo.
Raymond Ibrahim is a Middle East and Islam specialist and author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). His writings have appeared in a variety of media, including the Los Angeles Times, Washington Times, Jane’s Islamic Affairs Analyst, Middle East Quarterly, World Almanac of Islamism, and Chronicle of Higher Education ; he has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN, PBS, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, NPR, Blaze TV, and CBN. Ibrahim regularly speaks publicly, briefs governmental agencies, provides expert testimony for Islam-related lawsuits, and testifies before Congress
The U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s removal of about half of the Border Patrol’s supply of M4 carbine weapons underscores worries the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo Clown administration is disarming agents ahead of the president’s planned executive order granting amnesty to illegal aliens, a congressman warns.
Customs officials claim a large number of M4s were being taken from Border Patrol agents because the weapons were found to be unserviceable and posed safety concerns.
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, doesn’t buy that claim.
“There’s no more reliable weapon in the world,” he laughed.
“Any agency like the Department of Homeland Security that has bought millions of rounds of ammunition over the past few years could certainly afford to replace with new serviceable M4s all the weapons they are [taking] for testing,” King said.“This sounds to me like a ruse to start to take the weapons out of the hands of the Border Patrol.”
The congressman said that if there were legitimate concerns about the safety and serviceability of the M4s, “I would know about it by now.”
“As far as I know, there’s nothing out there about the operability of the M4,” he said.
King expressed a determination to find out exactly why DHS was taking the action now.
“If you disarm the Border Patrol in preparation for issuing an executive edict of unconstitutional amnesty, that starts a flood of illegal immigrants into the United States, and we can’t protect our borders,” he said.
King also said it makes no sense to pool the M4s among agents.
“Think of the Marine Corps if the troops had to share a weapon,” he said. “You sleep with your weapon, and you live with your weapon. You tear down your weapon, clean it and put it back together again until you can do it blindfolded. So what U.S. Customs and Border Protection is doing is like saying to a cowboy that you don’t get your own horse.”
King said it “would be very disturbing to me to know I had to go out and put my life on the line, but I had to check somebody else’s weapon out of the gun cabinet in the pool.”
‘They just showed up’
Art del Cueto, president of the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector union, told WND that in his 12 years as a Border Patrol agent, he has never experienced the federal government coming to the field and removing such a quantity of weapons at one time because of service issues.
“Nobody has a personally sighted weapon anymore,” he said. “All the Border Patrol agents are now using M4s that were used by someone else before them.”
^^^This is an act of treason and an obvious threat to the security of the country.
President Obama is planning to unveil a 10-part plan for overhauling U.S. immigration policy via executive action — including suspending deportations for millions — as early as next Friday, a source close to the White House told Fox News. The president’s plans were contained in a draft proposal from a U.S. government agency. The source said the plan could be announced as early as Nov. 21, though the date might slip a few days pending final White House approval.
Obama was briefed at the White House by Homeland Security officials before leaving on his Asia-Pacific trip last week, Fox News has learned.
^^^If this happens there will be no legal defense for the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo The POTUS Clown, he will be guilty of treason and any American has the legal authority to act to defend the Constitution against the attack by the Executive Branch, POTUS The NWO 666 Antichrist Clown. All military officers are charged with the duty of arresting him on the spot, even in their Antichrist Gay Pride BDU current FUBAR condition. All Legislators must move to call a Constitutional crisis. This is an act of treason and a criminal offense. The President does not have the authority to declare amnesty for any foreign person(s) in this ”criminal” case. To claim otherwise is to declare the President, as a criminal offender aiding and abetting, an active foreign threat to the Constitution and all Americans, and his action(s) as a(n) act to secure the country from all enemies both foreign and domestic by continuation of a clear criminal effort against the United States Constitution and ”We The People” suffering the complete criminal end as a result of an (more than ironic word in this case) ”illegal” (LMAO) Executive Order. Come on, dare anyone to utter ”Illegal Alien Executive Order” and keep a ”straight” (pun intended) face, especially if your dumb dusty ass ”IS” still in Antichrist NWO 666 POTUS Obozo Gay Pride BDU claiming to be a Christian soldier at this point.
In light of the fact that an order was issued, and carried out, regarding the Border Patrol weapons prior to the Executive Order, regarding amnesty for foreign ”criminals”, is evidence of a concerted overt effort to disrupt regular order and the security of the United States. Obozo should be arrest right now. If he remains in office another moment, there is no hope left for America whatsoever and the world should understand what this means. WAR is assured, and it is prophetic, and it’s already underway within the border of the United States. The American President is an enemy of America and an active obvious threat.
So for the tens of millions of illegals currently in the US, as well as their extended families residing abroad, you are in luck, and soon to be in possession of a green card providing you with all the benefits of America’s insolvent welfare state. And not to mention a fair chance at those 4.7 million job openings that the BLS’ JOLTS report revealed earlier today.
For US citizens who were born here, and who did not illegally cross the border to get inside the country: better luck next time.
As for the US, which is supposedly expected to grow at a above trendline 3% growth rate, through the harsh polar vortex 2.0 winter and in a world in which all major economies are rapidly crashing, what appears to be on the horizong is yet another constitutional crisis, and perhaps, finally, the dreader “impeachment” word:
Far more amusing for everyone is that the plan was conceived and finalized while president “Chewbama” was being mocked for his Nicorette habit, and belittled during his most recent trip to APEC in Beijing, where his crowning achievement was agreeing with China not to launch World War III.
Rep. Matt Salmon said he had more than 50 GOP lawmakers’ signatures on a letter to Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers, R-Ky., urging that any spending bill include language saying nothing in it could be used to implement an executive immigration policy. “This is an opportunity for everybody to come together and speak clearly and forcefully that doing this unconstitutional act would be a mistake, and if you do it, there won’t be funding for it,” said Salmon, R-Ariz. But he stopped short of threatening to withhold his vote for any spending bill that omits such language.
“You are not entitled to that information!” That’s what a staffer in Senator Markey’s office bluntly told me when I called to ask for help in identifying Members of Congress who hold dual citizenship.
Seems that’s a question no one wants to hear. The Internet sources are flaky, with only unreliable estimates for both House and Senate.
This week I filed a Freedom of Information Request to CRS asking for the names of Members of Congress who are dual citizens; or, if such data is not available, advice on where it can obtained. Given the omission of dual citizen topic in the Member profile cited above, I suspect that the relevant data is simply not being collected.
Until the Supreme Court decided otherwise in the 1967 case of Afroyim v. Rusk, a US citizen who voted in a political election in a foreign state would lose his US nationality. Afroyim opened the way for the acceptance of dual or multiple citizenship in US law. Not all countries allow their citizens to obtain dual citizenship. One country that does make it easy to become a dual national is Israel. Under its “Law of Return,” every Jew has the right to come to Israel as an oleh (a Jew immigrating to Israel) and become an Israeli citizen.
Why is it important for citizens to know if their representatives in Congress are dual citizens? Because both real and apparent conflicts of interest erode the public trust. If there are dual citizens in Congress or in top levels of the Executive Branch, citizens may reasonably demand that all foreign citizenship be renounced as a condition of high political office.
At the level of individual members, transparency is essential. For example, a constituent should know whether or not another state loyalty is involved when his or her representative speaks out on a major issue, such as on military assistance to Israel or recognition of Palestine as a state. Only if we know who are the dual citizens in Congress and what are their second countries, can we intelligently assess the credibility of their policy statements and actions.
^^^The fact that dual citizens are actually able to obtain and hold office is an obvious threat. Considering the fact that the legislative body has been able to get away with insider trading etc… etc… Is it any wonder, really, that the United States is in debt and has a person as ridiculous as Obozo the Clown much less people that hold citizenship also with a county like say …Israell that actively spies on the U.S., and it’s citizens, Israelis, get caught cheering on 911, like the muslims did on 911? The Israeli President even said 911 was good for Israel, so, that tells you that he is a foreign threat right there, because; in the counterintelligence world espionage can and has taken the form of: insuring the World Trade Center etc… That, dual citizen’s can cheer about, ”pulling” a multi billion dollar payoff and getting the U.S. to move military forces etc… into the desired position strategically and politically etc… etc… Come on, it happened and everyone with 1/10,000th of a brain cell knows it.
Witnessing the dual Antichrist Israeli Hollywood Citizen crowd award Obozo a humanitarian award should be a dead giveaway to any dipshit that still has any doubt that the prophetic reality of tribulation is at hand and Antichrist Israel and the Antichrist Islamic bastards do not give a damn about America over their own interest, and they certainly are antichrist delusional nutballs at war, the war that shall bring the world …to it’s tribulation point end in the coming months, and last years left before Christ returns. This shall be clear enough to even the lukewarm Laodicean by the end of 2015, and 2016 will offer no doubt to anyone on Earth.
America has been under constant attack from day one. It struggle against threats has been lost, do to the fact that the Christian majority has fallen away and allowed the new world secular order of the antichrist occult to turn America into Babylon, a nation of babbling fools that measure the antichrist spirit among all nations and Israel equal with the defense of the Christian Spirit of the Constitution. That delusion is now ending, and is as evident as Antichrist Israel’s border with Antichrist Islam and the satanic call of the United Nations New World Order founders actively attempting to destroy the borders of the nations with the borderless global mark of the beast now in principle, and in affect, upon all nations and Israel but for the confirming of The Antichrist ”covenant with many” to be sealed.
majority of Israelis wants to renew peace talks with the Palestinian Authority in order to prevent further terrorist attacks, a poll found Tuesday. In their monthly Peace Index poll, the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University asked a representative sample of the Israeli population whether they believed it was best to prevent terrorist attacks by renewing diplomatic talks with the PA.
The rates of Israelis calling for renewing peace talks were 57.2 percent among the general public, 52.5% among Jews and 81.2% among Arabs. Less than a third – 28.5% – of the public said to cease diplomatic contacts with the PA, including 33.1% of Jews and 5.7% of Arabs.
The Peace Index poll, which has been taken monthly for more than 20 years, found, as usual, that a large majority among Israeli Jews favors conducting negotiations with the PA even though they do not believe they will lead to peace.
Some 60% of Israeli Jews said they were in favor of peace talks in general, though less than 30 percent said they thought they would result in peace.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking to a conference of Jewish leaders in Washington, on Tuesday sternly warned against a possible international deal with Iran that would end sanctions but fail to stop it from getting nuclear weapons.
As someone who led the company that transported 550 metric tons of yellowcake uranium—enough to make fourteen Hiroshima-size bombs—from Saddam’s nuclear complex in the Iraq War’s notorious “Triangle of Death” for air shipment out of the country, I know Baathist Iraq’s WMD potential existed. In early 2008, we secretly moved over several nights 140 truckloads carrying 5500 barrels of extremely heavy radioactive material provided to Iraq as part of the French-supplied Osiraq reactor destroyed by Israeli fighter bombers in 1981. The virulently anti-Semitic Saddam had announced “here begins the Arab bomb” and the Israelis took him at his word.
The recent article in the New York Times, however, caught us all by surprise. Random caches of old chemical weapons found post-invasion were old news, but not “roughly 5,000” warheads and bombs, many filled with still active, nerve agent. That’s an enormous quantity even if evidently left over from the 1980s Iran-Iraq War. Just “antiques,” as the Washington Post’s Karen DeYoung quaintly put it at a Center for Strategic and International Studies forum on Iraq.
At the least, this shocker (after so many years of repetitious “Bush lied [about WMD], people died”) further points to the world’s inability to trust that the UN inspectors could ever realistically certify Saddam clean of his nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons programs. He had to be deposed, and the only way to do it was for us to invade and overthrow his dictatorship. Here was a genocidal, expansionist tyrant who had used chemical weapons on his own people and that of a neighboring nation (Iran), publically celebrated 9/11, and allowed a chemical weapons laboratory affiliated with al-Qaeda to operate within his security forces’ reach inside his country’s borders in contested Kurdistan (Khurmal).
The article in the Times references the Duelfer Report that summed up the official American investigation of Iraq’s WMD as definitive in that there were no ongoing WMD programs pre-invasion, yet fails to mention that every section of the report on the different types of weapons of mass destruction concluded that the evidence gathered by investigators clearly indicated that once sanctions were removed Saddam would reinstate his WMD programs. In addition, the article mentions that the chemical weapons program was not active for over ten years, but not the biological weapons program, which extended into 1996 and was only discovered because Saddam’s son-in-law defected, even after five years of aggressive UN inspections.
Much of the area where the “antique,” yet still potentially potent chemical weapons discovered by US forces is now in the hands of ISIS, the forces of al-Douri, and their allied Sunni Arab tribes undergirding the “caliphate” occupying almost a third of Iraq. With hundreds of Western passport holders fighting in Syria and Iraq, the most immediate threat to the United States is the spread of jihadi terrorism to Europe now that ISIS has a border with Turkey, a gateway to the EU.
Can one even imagine the impact of a weaponized sarin-gas attack in Paris?
The new strategy formed by Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo’s national security team ignores the fact al-Assad and the Syrian military represent the only tenable opposition to the Islamic State and other Islamist groups funded and trained by the United States and its partners, most notably Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey.
Employing convoluted logic, the administration argues the “long-running Syria problem is now compounded by the reality that to genuinely defeat ISIL, we need not only a defeat in Iraq but a defeat in Syria.”
ISIL, short for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, is the acronym the government uses for Da’esh (al-Dawla al-Islamiya al-Iraq al-Sham), or the Islamic State which will become the darkness that ”IS” supposed to fill in the gap established by successfully removing Assad somehow without his Russian nuclear ally that has sworn to defend it’s Syrian asset(s).
They claim (and I am going to link to the sources later) that personhood isn’t established until a being is “self-aware”, and for most humans that comes around 5 years of age.
If you’re stupid enough to accept that postulation, then you’ll really like what else they say. They go further to claim that if the mother is inconvenienced by a child, that is enough to warrant a “post-birth abortion”. Don’t like your 3 year old drawing on the wall? Go ahead and kill her. The terrible twos got the best of you? Problem solved.
It’s enough to make me want to vomit, but philosophically it is consistent with the pro-eugenics stance of American liberals. Simply put, American Democrats are so militantly “pro-choice”, that not even birth is enough to stem the tide of murder.
As he states in the interview, longevity really means, “We’re going to be extending the period of life that we now consider ‘youthful’.”
ObozoCare Jonathan Gruber brags about the “basic exploitation” of American voters
I’m sure no one is terribly surprised at the recent revelations that the much-hyped “Affordable” “Care” Act was passed on the basis of lies and deceit. Or as its architect, economist Jonathan Gruber gleefully told a group of health economists, ignorance afforded a political advantage and the bill was passed because of “the stupidity of the American voter.”
If anyone is surprised at this revelation, then perhaps Gruber’s assessment of Americans was correct. Think about it: a guy comes along and tells you that he can provide the same level of quality and service in a new healthcare program that will at once cover more people, reduce overall costs, deliver better quality of service with better outcomes to boot. And on top of that he promises that you can keep your existing doctor and insurance plan.
To say that anyone who falls for this is gullible is to be overly charitable. During the lead up to passage of this train wreck, more sentient minds questioned the basic premise of the ACA, pointing out that it was neither “affordable,” nor did it have anything much to do with “care.” More accurately put, the ACA should be renamed the Secret Takeover Of Mindless Patsies law (STOMP), because that’s exactly what this law was designed to do.
The insurance companies made their deal with the devil believing his sweet talk and in the very near future they will find themselves in an untenable situation, as the actuarial tables won’t mesh with the realities of ObamaCare. Already we are hearing rumblings of reduced expectations for the coming year as fewer younger people are choosing not to enroll. Insurance companies can’t eat that loss because they have shareholders to answer to. It’s highly likely the system will collapse within the next 24 months.
It’s also highly likely that the collapse of the system was pre-planned, as outlined in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Ideologues do not care who or how many get hurt, so long as they get their desired outcome. And if you’re an America-hating left-wing radical, then being able to collapse the system seems pretty cool.
Collapsing America appears to have been the plan of this president all along. Recent news of US Immigration Courts remanding the cases of most of the youngsters that entered America through the southern border, has increased the Courts’ caseloads by tens of thousand of cases and will cost taxpayers billions of dollars, as none of the waifs have or can afford their own lawyers.
All of the worst predictions made about this administration are beginning to come true, including a nuclear Iran, an Islamic Caliphate, a reincarnation of the Soviet Union and a permanent underclass of poverty stricken Americans. Remarkable as it seems, impeachment has been permanently taken off the table because of race.
That’s analogous to having a family member that sexually abuses your children and you don’t want to press charges because he’s family. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
Syrian Christians are people that Obozo the Clown would not offer citizenship to at this point, the illegal aliens that have already broken the law prove this fact. Obozo has not even mentioned saving them from his deadly Syrian effort, now making them; homeless, subject to starvation, rape etc… and murder from the antichrist Islamic State, and death from the Syrian War effort he, Israel, Saudi Arabia etc… AKA the 666 NWO Antichrist POTUS Clown Team are waging with Russia, China etc… prophetic Antichrist end time lethal evil effort(s).
So what happens if one uses the previously guided tax rate of 34%? One gets a “Consolidated net income attributable to Walmart” number of $3,587 or down $124 million from the reported number. It also means that the EPS beat of $1.15 would actually be a 1 cent miss at $1.11!
Expect the algos to thoroughly ignore this nuance. Also expect everyone to ignore the magic of buybacks, because while WMT reported an as adjusted EPS of $1.15, or the tiniest of increases from a year ago, when WMT reported $1.14, the actual Earnings not per share declined by 0.7% from $3,738 to $3,711. Ah… buybacks.
A “sensitive” internal memo has been distributed to all Wal-Mart store members which urges stores to purge all “Chilled and Fresh” items in its dairy, meat and produce departments. Essentially, the call has gone out to all stores to discount and purge all perishables ASAP! Wal-Mart does not typically put out “urgent and sensitive” memos to their stores unless something major is brewing. This is NOT just a blue light special.
Retailers like Target, Macy’s, and Old Navy are starting their Black Friday sales earlier this year, but Walmart is surpassing their efforts by extending its Black Friday deals through the entire weekend.
Bloomberg News reports that Walmart will include five days of sales both online and in stores beginning at 12.01am on Thanksgiving Day and continuing through ‘Cyber Monday,’ the company announced in a statement Wednesday.
WTI Crude oil prices tumbled to a $75 handle this morning as Saudi oil minister al-Naimi dismissed claims of a price-war as having “no basis in reality” noting that “Saudi oil policy has remained constant for the past few decades and it has not change today,” suggesting expectations of a supply cut at the looming OPEC meetings are overdone. This comment comes after Qatar said it “may” cut output by 500k barrels/day.
As we noted previously, While Saudi Arabia tests the mettle of North American producers, it could be Venezuela that is the most vulnerable.(via Nick Cunningham of OilPrice.com)
The Maduro government desperately needs a rise in oil prices, but Saudi Arabia has so far rebuffed calls for an emergency meeting as it pursues a strategy of waiting out higher cost competitors. OPEC does not plan on meeting until Nov. 27. That is still an eternity for a country that is beginning to unravel.

And it appears other oil producers are suffering too… the Naira hits a new record low…
Less than two months ago, Albert Edwards presented “The Most Important Chart For Investors” in which he predicted, correctly, that the real action will come not in the Euro but the Japanese Yen, and at a time when the USDJPY was trading around 108, Edwards forecast a sharp move to 120. A month later, Abe’s just as shocking “all in” bet on boosting QE to a level where it matches the Fed’s peak monthly POMO despite an economy that is a third the size of the US, proved Edwards correct and has since sent the USDJPY some 800 pips higher and just 400 pips shy of Edwards’ 120 forecast. At this rate, the 120 target may be taken out within weeks not months.
So what happens next? Here, straight from the horse’s mouth that got the first part of the rapid Yen devaluation so right, is the answer. As Edwards updates with a note from this morning, “the yen is set to follow the US dollar DXY trade-weighted index by crashing through multi-decade resistance – around ¥120. It seems entirely plausible to me that once we break ¥120, we could see a very quick ¥25 move to ¥145, forcing commensurate devaluations across the whole Asian region and sending a tidal wave of deflation westwards.”
End result: Japan will unleash “a tidal wave of deflation westwards” at least until the Fed and its western peers respond in kind and return to doing what they all do best: printing money in hope of stimulating their own inflation and offseting the importing of Japan’s deflation, which will also bring everyone back to square one, and will certainly be the end-game in the global currency wars.
It seems Alan Greenspan may have been on to something after all…
what we’re looking at. Gold is a currency. It is still, by all
evidence, a premier currency. No fiat currency, including the dollar,
can match it.”

Of course this will mean more physical demand – along with Russia and China – and so more price suppression by the West.
And, this was his opening paragraph:
We have to be concerned that the Cycle of War turns back up next week. NATO has reported that Russian troops have now invaded Eastern Ukraine. In the Cycles of War Report we wrote that target will be November 19/20, 2014 (2014.8871) where we should see some escalation in activity. It appears this may be correct and on point. Caution should be advised next week.
And, Martin goes on to talk about Russia’s escalation towards the US and how Obama has sown the seeds for World War III. Things are heating up between Pakistan and India. And, there is unrest in Mexico. Mr. Armstrong also reminds us to not forget the riots that seem ready to take off in Ferguson, Missouri. It’s all a part of the Cycle of War.
A financial doomsday is bad. Losing your wealth and your livelihood is not something that ANYONE wants to experience. But, a doomsday for war? That is far, far worse. A financial collapse would cause hardship, but a war is a far greater threat – especially since our enemies have nuclear weapons. Given the choice, most of us will choose hardship over death.
Of course, we aren’t being given the choice, we are going have a war, AND a financial collapse. And, in the same way that there is a cycle for financial collapse, there is a cycle for war.
Every parent used to want a better life for their sons and daughters than they had themselves. And there can be no doubt that most like nothing more then being fooled until they die by politicians’ promises of growth and recovery.
But one single honest look at younger generations should teach them that those promises are hollow and empty. Some can try and plead dementia, but even then.
I have no high hopes to see this resolved with grace and dignity and respect across generations, I think people across the board will be too reluctant to give up what they claim is theirs. If they are, though, that will mean the dissolution of entire societies, something that never happens in peaceful ways.
I’m afraid I got to delve into a particularly unpopular topics once again today. Blame it on Bloomberg. They ran a piece on the Silent Generation (people born between 1928-’45), which finds it self in a ‘sweet spot’ but refuses to spend enough. A funny problem: the by far richest group in the US doesn’t spend, while those who would like to spend, for instance to build a home and a family, are too poor to do it.
I know I’m not going to make myself popular with what I have to say about this, but then I’m not running for US President, or Miss Universe for that matter. Besides, people should be careful about taking things personal that are not.
My point is that the Silent Generation is by far the most destructive generation in human history, so it should be no surprise they’re also the richest ever. What’s more, the chance that there will ever be a more destructive generation is eerily close to zero, and that uniqueness warrants scrutiny.
My point is even more that the Silent Generation may and will claim innocence wherever they can, but there is no innocence left today. Today, they can all watch their TVs and look out the window and understand that this is not going to end well. Unless the Silent Generation make very substantial changes to their lifestyles and attitudes, they’re inviting a war with their own (grand)children.
