Little did we know that just minutes after our tweet, we would learn that at least one place is already paying homeowners to take out a mortgage. That’s right – the negative rate mortgage is now a reality.
Thanks of Mario Draghi’s generosity with “other generations’ slavery”, and following 3 consecutive rate cuts by the Danish Central Bank, a local bank – Nordea Credit – is now offering a mortgage with a negative interest rate! This means, according to DR.dk, that Nordea have had to pay instead of charging interest to to a handful of customers, says housing economist at Nordea Kredit, Lise Nytoft Bergmann for Finance.
From DR, google-translated:
The interest rate has balanced around 0 in a level between minus 0.03 percent plus 0.03 percent. Most have paid a modest positive interest rate, but there are so few who have had a negative rate. It is quite an unusual situation, says Lise Nytoft Bergmann.
It is residential customers who have chosen to stick with F1-loan that now benefit from the negative interest rate. F1 loan form has otherwise been strong returns in recent years in favor of fixed interest loan.
Although interest rates are negative, it is not something that can be felt by customers as contributions and other costs continue to be paid. In turn, interest will be deducted from the contribution.
Precisely because it is an unusual situation, Nordea Kredit’s IT systems are not geared to the situation when the computers are only used to collect interest.
Lise Nytoft Bergmann says that there is no cause for concern, and that the new situation can be handled, “but sometimes we have to use duct tape and paste.”
This is just the beginning: according the Danish media outlet, as a result of variable-refinancing, as recently as a week from now “a greater share of customers could have a negative rate.”
Mortgage Denmark is one of the mortgage banks, where F1 rate also is close to zero, and here you are very excited about the upcoming negotiations, says Christian Hilligsøe Heinig, chief economist of the Mortgage Denmark.
We have an auction just around the corner and it is very exciting to see how interest rates are going. We can go and get negative interest rates, says Christian Hilligsøe Heinig to JP Financial.
And just like that, first in Denmark, and soon everywhere else in Europe, a situation has now emerged where savers who pay the bank to hold their cash courtesy of negative deposit rates, are directly funding the negative interest rate paid to those who wish to take out debt. In fact, the more debt the greater the saver-subsidized windfall.
That all this will end in blood and a lot of tears is clear to anyone but the most tenured economists, however in the meantime, we can’t wait to take advantage of the humorous opportunities that Europe (and soon Japan and the US) will provide in the coming months, as spending profligacy will be directly subsidized and funded by the insolvent monetary system, while responsible behavior and well-paid labor will be punished, first with negative rates and soon thereafter: with threats, both theoretical and practical, of bodily harm.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
so also it hath been written, `The first man Adam became a living creature,’ the last Adam [is] for a life-giving spirit, 46 but that which is spiritual [is] not first, but that which [was] natural, afterwards that which [is] spiritual.
47 The first man [is] out of the earth, earthy; the second man [is] the Lord out of heaven; 48 as [is] the earthy, such [are] also the earthy; and as [is] the heavenly, such [are] also the heavenly;
49 and, according as we did bear the image of the earthy, we shall bear also the image of the heavenly. 50 And this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood the reign of God is not able to inherit, nor doth the corruption inherit the incorruption;
51 lo, I tell you a secret; we indeed shall not all sleep, and we all shall be changed;
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, in the last trumpet, for it shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we — we shall be changed:
53 for it behoveth this corruptible to put on incorruption, and this mortal to put on immortality;
54 and when this corruptible may have put on incorruption, and this mortal may have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the word that hath been written, `The Death was swallowed up — to victory;
55 where, O Death, thy sting? where, O Hades, thy victory?’
56 and the sting of the death [is] the sin, and the power of the sin the law;
57 and to God — thanks, to Him who is giving us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ;
58 so that, my brethren beloved, become ye stedfast, unmovable, abounding in the work of the Lord at all times, knowing that your labour is not vain in the Lord.
And there was given to me a reed like to a rod, and the messenger stood, saying, `Rise, and measure the sanctuary of God, and the altar, and those worshipping in it; 2 and the court that is without the sanctuary leave out, and thou mayest not measure it, because it was given to the nations, and the holy city they shall tread down forty-two months; 3 and I will give to My two witnesses, and they shall prophesy days, a thousand, two hundred, sixty, arrayed with sackcloth; 4 these are the two olive [trees], and the two lamp-stands that before the God of the earth do stand; 5 and if any one may will to injure them, fire doth proceed out of their mouth, and doth devour their enemies, and if any one may will to injure them, thus it behoveth him to be killed. 6 These have authority to shut the heaven, that it may not rain rain in the days of their prophecy, and authority they have over the waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the land with every plague, as often as they may will.
7 `And when they may finish their testimony, the beast that is coming up out of the abyss shall make war with them, and overcome them, and kill them, 8 and their dead bodies [are] upon the broad-place of the great city (that is called spiritually Sodom, and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified,)
and they shall behold — they of the peoples, and tribes, and tongues, and nations — their dead bodies three days and a half, and their dead bodies they shall not suffer to be put into tombs, 10 and those dwelling upon the land shall rejoice over them, and shall make merry, and gifts they shall send to one another, because these — the two prophets — did torment those dwelling upon the land.’
11 And after the three days and a half, a spirit of life from God did enter into them, and they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon those beholding them, 12 and they heard a great voice out of the heaven saying to them, `Come up hither;’ and they went up to the heaven in the cloud, and their enemies beheld them;
13 and in that hour came a great earthquake, and the tenth of the city did fall, and killed in the earthquake were names of men — seven thousands, and the rest became affrighted, and they gave glory to the God of the heaven. 14 The second wo did go forth, lo, the third wo doth come quickly.
15 And the seventh messenger did sound, and there came great voices in the heaven, saying, `The kingdoms of the world did become [those] of our Lord and of His Christ, and he shall reign to the ages of the ages!’
16 and the twenty and four elders, who before God are sitting upon their thrones, did fall upon their faces, and did bow before God, 17 saying, `We give thanks to Thee, O Lord God, the Almighty, who art, and who wast, and who art coming, because Thou hast taken Thy great power and didst reign;
18 and the nations were angry, and Thine anger did come, and the time of the dead, to be judged, and to give the reward to Thy servants, to the prophets, and to the saints, and to those fearing Thy name, to the small and to the great, and to destroy those who are destroying the land.’ 19 And opened was the sanctuary of God in the heaven, and there was seen the ark of His covenant in His sanctuary, and there did come lightnings, and voices, and thunders, and an earthquake, and great hail..
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.
19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
For perhaps the first time, Israel has become a strongly partisan issue in Washington. An axiom that has rung true in American politics since the Liberty Bell cracked is that Antichrist Jews vote Antichrist Democrat. In the 2012 election, the Antichrist NWO Republicans tried to wrest the Idiot Antichrist Jewish vote away from Antichrist Obozo The 911 Clown by claiming that his administration did not support Israel. Those efforts failed, but Congress is strongly divided and with his State of the Union Address, the president set out his battle lines on the issue of sanctions against Antichrist Iran.
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.
The inclusion of Varoufakis in the Syriza cabinet makes one wonder whether Greece being set up for total economic collapse under a false flag Soros-controlled finance minister followed by Ferguson-style social unrest, paving the way for a bankster-controlled military dictatorship in the familiar dialetic of radical right follows radical left.
For sure, Syriza could have found a genuinely fresh and well informed economist to implement the switch to public money. It doesn’t need a tainted old pony and media star like Varoufakis.
Another strange figure in the Syriza cabinet is Panos Kammenos, the new defence minister, who received the Order of Knight of the National Order of Merit from the President of France Nicolas Sarkozy, no less. Kammenos is another pony who has performed his tricks on the political stage in Greece since Sophocles.
Not content with funding the Ferguson rioters to the tune of 33 million dollars in one year alone, Soros has also spurred the Greek protest movement through funding Vouliwatch, a Greek political website which mobilizes the grass roots to lobby parliament.
American readers are familiar with the concept of controlled opposition having been entertained by the sock puppets Ron and Rand Paul. And it was a Texan who tipped me off on the links which suggest Syriza is a Soros-funded fake opposition. Thanks, Tom.
We won’t go into the specific details of China’s burst housing bubble, the shady underworld of its pyramid scheme wealth-management products, the fact that any hard asset in China is rehypothecated literally a countless number of times, the nuances of its deflating shadow banking system, or even the complexities of its alleged capital controls (alleged, because as a reminder, they only exist for the common folks – the really wealthy Chinese are naturally exempt from any capital flow constraints). We will point out something even more disturbing.
Recall that China, a mercantilist, export-driven country, has a currency that is pegged to the dollar in all but name (yes, the technical peg was dropped in 2005 but since then the PBOC controls the daily moves in the strictest and tiniest of increments), a dollar which has soared in the past 6 months to levels which have prompted countless other central banks to ease in recent weeks, and even forced the Swiss National Bank out of the currency wars, waving a flag of surrender. As a result, China’s exports have been crushed regardless of what fabricated and goalseeked Chinese data will have gullible observes believing.
And while the value of the local Yuan, the CNY, is set by bureaucrats and policy makers on a daily basis, and trades in a tight band around a specific, political number and thus never truly reflects the fair value of the Chinese currency, its offshore cousin, the CNH, floats and is impacted by the private demand of the Yuan. As such, the latter is far more indicative of the pressures that face the Chinese economy and what financial interests dictate should be the fair value of the domestic currency.
It is also the former, the Offshore Yuan, that overnight hit a two-year low, reaching a level not seen since September 2012.
China is pitching an investment in Ponzi schemes as a higher-yielding alternative than putting one’s money in an appreciating dollar. Which, in retrospect is backed by another Ponzi scheme, so at least superficially it does makes sense. The bigger problem is that it would appear that the local citizens have figured out that in a time when the US Dollar is ascendent, the knock on effects on the Chinese economy are quite dangerous, and from the collapse in exports, to the imploding banks, to the halt in commerce and urbanization, the dollar suddenly looks like a far better option especially when the local currency is unbacked by anything: not gold, not crude, nothing.
The punchline from the Chinese media:
A forex trader said that despite the recent plunge in the value of renminbi against the greenback, the exchange rate of the former will fluctuate moderately at most, as the renminbi is essentially pegged to the greenback in value, according to China Business News.
Yes… unless China does indeed proceed to become merely the latest in a long chain of countries – main export competitors Japan, the Eurozone and Korea included – who have already devalued against the USD: something numerous experts have quietly voiced in recent weekly is not only possible by just a matter of time.
And why not: after all with China’s economy dramatically slowing, it is virtually inevitable that China will have to devalue to spur its export-driven economy.
Of course, the flipside is that the resultant surge of capital flows in the USD assure that the US economy, with its currency at never before seen heights, grinds to a halt, the stock market crashes, and the US export industry falls like dominoes. In many ways, this would be reminiscent of the short-term pain Greece would suffer if its exits the Eurozone, the financial collapse that would follow and wipe out the legacy wealth but set the country on strong footing with its own currency going forward and a way to fix imbalances not only by cutting wages and welfare, but through its own currency as well.
And finally, even if China does devalue now, it knows very well that it has a currency put later: after all those thousands of tons of undisclosed gold that the PBOC has accumulated “secretly” since 2009 can very easily be used to backstop a new-regime currency, once which would redefine the global world order, and serve as the world’s reserve.
When will all this happen? Nobody knows, however it is clear that with every passing day that the stronger dollar forces China’s exporters into an ever more untenable position, the D(evaluation)- day comes closer.
Unless, of course, the Fed capitulates in the meantime, and crushes all hope of a rate hike or even proceeds with more quantitative easing or even NIRP. In that case all bets are off, and so is the Fed’s credibility, leading to an even more… exciting world.
In an email interview with The Christian Post, Yancey, professor of sociology at the University of North Texas, explained that Christians are fortunate in one sense, because those with anti-Christian hostility are small in number; but in another sense, they should be concerned, because those with “Christianophobia” tend to be powerful elites with influence in certain important areas, such as higher education.
But there are some that I think are hard to defend, such as the policies at California colleges which have led to the removal of Christian groups. I have written about such policies and still fail to hear a solid reason why we should give an atheist the “right” to be the president of a Christian group. The only viable reason I can think is because this rule allows college administrators to express some degree of latent Christianophobia with a fiction of promoting equality.
CP: Sociologist Peter Berger famously remarked that if Sweden is the most secular country and India is the most religious country, America has become a nation of Indians ruled by Swedes. At a Faith Angle Forum talk, he added, “many of the problems of America have to do with the fact that the Indians have become increasingly pissed off at the Swedes.” In some ways, your book seems to present a correlate to that: the Swedes “have become increasingly pissed off at the” Indians. Do you agree?
Yancey: I think that is a great way to think about it. I would put it this way: Because of their numbers the Indians historically had a lot of political and cultural power in our society. They may not be in the elite political positions but the Swedes in those positions could not afford to ignore what they wanted. The Swedes for years documented the excesses and biases of the Indians. Over time, they begin to look down on the Indians. But they also gained educational and cultural power and begin to ignore the concerns of the Indians. But the Swedes never considered that many of the social processes that produce bigotries in the Indians also can produce bigotries in themselves. They became quite adept at seeing social dysfunctions in the Indians but not in themselves.
Back when the BRICs were the source of marginal global growth, the punditry couldn’t stop praising them. However, in the past year, now that China’s housing bubble has burst and its shadow banking system has imploded, those who remember what BRIC actually stood for are about as rare as those who recall what it means for the Fed to hike rates. Which is precisely why nobody in the mainstream financial media has commented on the absolutely abysmal economic update reported earlier today out Brazil.
We are happy to do so because today’s data follows up quite well to our article from a month ago “Brazil’s Economy Just Imploded” and as the earlier article on the crashing Brazilian Real hinted, things for the Brazilian economy how gone from imploding to, well, worse because not only did the twin fiscal and current account deficits rise even more, hitting a whopping 11% of GDP – the worst since August 1999, but its government debt soared to 63.4% in 2014, up from 56.7% a year ago, and the highest since at least 2006. In short – the entire economy is now on the verge of total collapse.
Obviously for oil prices to eventutally stabilize, production will have to slow and rig counts plunge further.. and so will jobs…
For the 8th week in a row (something that hasn’t happened since June 2009), US total rig count plunged. This week’s 90 rig drop to 1543 is the largest so far (with oil rigs down 94 to 1223 – lowest since Jan 2013). The total rig count is now down 20% in the last 8 weeks to the lowest since June 2010 as it tracks the 4-month lagged oil price perfectly. This is the 2nd biggest 8-week drop in 22 years. This – rather unsurprisingly – has led Chevron to decide to cut 23% of its Pennsylvania workforce “due to activity levels.” Not ‘unambiguously positive’ as so many in the central planning bureaus would have everyone believe.
“Reality” is not “perception”
… which means this may well be the beginning of the end of the 6 year bull market. For now, the realization if only hitting Cheveron stockholders.
Also did we mention Chevron’s “dwindling cash flow”? Good: here’s why:

And for everyone who missed it yesterday, here again is “Either Oil Soars Back To $88, Or Energy Stocks Have To Tumble By Over 40%”
Several days ago we showed something remarkable: “current forward 12-month P/E ratio for the Energy sector is now well above the three most recent historical averages: 5-year (12.0), 10-year (11.9), and 15-year (13.6). In fact, this week marked the first time the forward 12-month P/E for the Energy sector has been equal to (or above) 22.4 since April 8, 2002. On that date, the closing price of the Energy sector was 225.15 and the forward 12-month EPS estimate was $10.05.”
Further refining this analysis and using the S&P Energy Sector Index data, the sector’s forward multiple is now an absolutely ridiculous, mindblowing 23x, the highest since 2002, having soared by nearly 100% in just the past few months as a result of collapsing energy sector earnings.
How is this possible?
Simple: as the chart below shows, since the oil’s peak in June 2014, Energy company EPS have crashed by 50%, as a result of a 60% plunge in the price of oil. What about Energy Index prices? Well, they have fallen to be sure, but nowhere near far enough to where they should, down “only” 20% from the highs.
So what does this mean? Simple: either the long-term PE multiple is now null and void, and the “New Normal” forward PE of 20X+ is realistic, which of course is ridiculous, or there are two alternatives:
Energy sector earnings have to surge by 70%, implying a near doubling of oil prices to $88, for the forward P/E multiple to return to normal, or The Energy sector price has to crash from 549 today to 323, where it would trade down to its historic forward P/E multiple, suggesting a price drop of over 40%!
So which is it? Well, as the following chart showing a relationship we have grown to love over the past few months, the main reason why energy stocks are loathe to catch down to reality is the same BTFD mentality which is keeping the S&P elevated well over 100% above its fair “ex-central banker” value. Indeed, every single time even the smallest buying momentum arrives, energy stocks soar as if stung, only to recrash day after precisely to where credit says they should be trading.
Which means that once the ongoing euphoria of a 5 year Pavlovian BTFD reaction wears off, the pain for those long energy equities (and credit, since the above analysis implies energy credits are also massively mispriced) will be unprecedented, unless of course, by some >>>WMD NYC<<<miracle, oil does indeed double from here and on very short notice.
But wait, it gets worse, because while equities are pricing in an unsustainable 23x in foward energy P/E, another market, that of interest rate forwards, is implying oil plunging down to $35! As a reminder, oil is among other things, a function of rate differentials or said simpler, USD strength, strength which appears is not going anywhere. And as the following calculation from Cornerstone implies, should the EURUSD tumble to parity which is what Draghi’s desire seems to be, it would suggest a 22% plunge in oil from here, implying a $35.5 price of oil one year from now.
This in turn would mean that, all else equal, the forward PE multiple would rise to just shy of 30x, and/or that Energy prices as a group would have to tumble over 50% from current levels!
Of course, if and when energy prices are cut in half, this would also have devastating consequences on the rest of the S&P, and all other asset classes, and almost assuredly force the Fed to not only forget all about hiking rates, but promptly engage in QE4.
Which may be just what the market is pricing in.
The only problem is that one can’t have a world in which both QE4 is priced in (as equities are doing), as well as pricing in the 2015 Fed rate hike (as oil is doing), and is one of the main drivers of the USD strength.
One has to give, and it has to give soon.
Crazy Antichrist NWO Low Life Scum John McCain is at it again. Nothing gets this guy more riled up than American plebs questioning status quo war criminals. I suspect much of this anger is rooted in his own legitimate fear about how history will remember his own legacy of remarkable stupidity.
Truly remarkable to see a Senator become so easily unhinged when protesters show up to condemn Antichrist NWO Henry Kissinger. See for yourself:
He’s a thug, and a crook, and a liar, and a pseudo-intellectual and a murderer. Ok? Those things are factually verifiable.

Sheikh Muhammad Munajid, claimed the mouse is “one of Satan’s soldiers” and makes everything it touches impure, The Telegraph reports.  But he warned that like all devilish creatures depictions of the creature in cartoons such as Tom and Jerry, and Disney’s Mickey Mouse, had taught children that it was in fact loveable.   The cleric, a former diplomat at the Saudi embassy in Washington DC, said that under Sharia, both household mice and their cartoon counterparts must be killed. Mr Munajid was asked to give Islam’s teaching on mice during a religious affairs program broadcast on al-Majd TV, an Arab television network. According to a translation prepared by the Middle East Media Research Institute, an American press monitoring service, he said: “The mouse is one of Satan’s soldiers and is steered by him. […] the mouse is impure.”   Following is an excerpt from the religious program featuring Saudi Cleric Muhammad Al-Munajid, which aired on Al-Majd TV on August 27, 2008:
“There is the potential for a massive black swan to develop because of the Greek crisis and the election of the new government. This will unfold if the German banks, the creditors of Greece and the EU politicians refuse to accommodate the legitimate needs of the Greek government.
The Greeks must renegotiate the harsh conditions that have been put on their country in order to solve their sovereign debt problem. The current agreement as it exists is intolerable to the Greeks and it can’t stand. But if the Germans and the other Greek creditors don’t agree, you could see an alliance between the Greeks and the Russians.
The BRICS now have this IMF-type bank and they have funded it with $100 billion. Putin now sees that he has the opportunity to break the Greeks off from the EU and from NATO. The BRICS bank would step in and help the Greeks with their debt-servicing problems. That could be the beginning of the unraveling of the European Union and NATO.
You have to remember, Eric, that Italy, Spain and Portugal will be watching this situation with Greece very carefully. These countries still face the same kind of threats that are being applied to Greece. And of course the Irish have suffered dramatically under the austerity imposed on them.
So if these countries see that Europe will not ameliorate the hardships that have been imposed on them by these austerity programs, and these countries turn to Russia, China and India — the BRICS — you would then see a total breakdown in the EU system. This is a system where the banks get countries in debt and then they send in the IMF to impose austerity.
The Ultimate Black Swan As Countries Are Looted
The bank’s clients then buy the premier assets of these countries for pennies on the dollar. It’s a looting process. That’s what happened to Greece. It also happened to Ireland. So if these European countries realize that all they are just being looted, they will then accept Putin’s offer and turn to the Russians and the Chinese. The BRICS can easily assist the Greeks.
These countries would then abandon Germany, Washington and the IMF, who are imposing all these hardships on them and also looting their countries. So there is the potential for the ultimate disaster here if the West is stupid and arrogant enough not to bend. That would mean the unraveling of the European Union and of NATO — the ultimate black swan.”
Eric King: “Dr. Roberts, what we are seeing unfold right now has ramifications far beyond Greece. You are talking about an aggressive chess move by Putin and a massive sweep by the Russians and the Chinese into Europe — through the back door of Greece, and then eventually into Spain, Italy, Portugal, and possibly even Ireland. You are talking here about the total destruction of the EU and the euro.”
Dr. Roberts: “That’s exactly right. You see, Eric, the EU is telling the Greeks they won’t change any conditions and if the Greeks don’t agree they may simply expel the Greek government out of the EU and the euro system. Well, if they are that stupid, then Russia and China will enter — that’s the opening. If that unfolds, then yes, the Chinese and the Russians can unwind
it appears things just got a little more tense…

As Eurogroup chief Jeroen Dijsselbloem (of “template” foot in mouth infamy) heads to Athens for talkstoday, Bloomberg reports the new Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has a clear message for his European overlords of the past: “We don’t want the 7 billion euros…We want to sit down and rethink the whole program.” While this exposes the nation’s banking system to further runs, yesterday’s revelation that Russia could step in with financing should they need it, leaves Dijsselbloem and Shulz with less and less leverage even as Spain’s chief economic advisor warns, if Greece doesn’t play along, “there will be problems on all fronts.”
Solar activity continues at moderate levels today with two M-class flares (M2.0 and M1.7) erupting from Region 2268 and one from newly numbered Region 2277 (M2.4).
Marine biologists and other researchers are voicing serious concerns regarding the high mortality rate among orcas (killer whales) observed over the past couple of years.
No one has yet proven that there is a direct link between the 100 percent mortality rate seen among orca infants and the effects of the radiation contamination of the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima reactor leak in Japan, but it certainly can’t be ruled out as a possibility.
It is rather interesting that the incidence of orca deaths — not just of infants, but full-grown specimens as well — has risen sharply since the accident occurred in 2011 and as the radiation has made its way across the Pacific Ocean to the West Coast of North America.
Scientists have also noticed odd behavior among orcas recently. Dr. Lance Barrett-Lennard, senior marine mammal scientist at the Vancouver Aquarium, has been “sounding the alarm” over the unprecedented mortality rate and the changes in behavior seen in orca pods off the coast of Canada and Alaska.
Dr. Barrett-Lennard says that he and other scientists have noticed that the mammals have become strangely quiet over the past two summers. When teams went out to study the pods and record their vocalizations as part of their normal research routine, they were surprised at how little the cetaceans were communicating with each other:
They weren’t vocalizing, and that was quite a striking change after years and years of being very familiar with how noisy they are and how easy to find acoustically.
He believes that “something is likely wrong with the ocean environment,” as paraphrased by News1130.com, and that more research is needed to understand the reasons behind the high death rates and the behavioral changes recently observed by the scientists.
Aside from the 100 percent mortality rate among orca infants, many of the matriarchs are dying as well, leading some to speculate that the species may become extinct — possibly within the next 20 years.
The recent discovery of a carcass off the coast of British Columbia — that of a 19-year-old orca female, which was believed to be in the late stages of pregnancy, is just one example of the recent orca deaths that have scientists and conservationists worried.
Ken Balcomb, executive director of the Center For Whale Research in Friday Harbor, Washington, said:
Her death doesn’t bode well for the southern resident population and certainly not for that matriline. Her mother died young. Her aunt had two sons and she’s probably post-reproductive. She hasn’t had any babies in the last 12 years. So there’s no future.
Balcomb also remarked:
We haven’t had any survivals in babies for a couple of years. We have had stillborns and newborns die and a number of whales that appear to be pregnant but didn’t ultimately produce any calves. It’s like zero survival in birth rate here.
Howard Garrett of Orca Network is another who is expressing deep concerns about the orca population living in the waters near Vancouver and Washington state:
Our hopes are just so fragile already. There was a calf born in early September that lived less than a month and that was the first calf in two years. The last calf that survived was August 2012. There should be two or three births at least per year just to hold steady. We like to see four or five per year. Instead, there have been seven mortalities and no births.
As mentioned above, there is no proven link between the Fukushima radiation leak and the high mortality rate among West Coast orcas, and many other sea animals, as of yet, and more research is needed to determine exactly what is killing the killer whales. And at this point, radiation poisoning can certainly not be ruled out.
And the second messenger did sound, and as it were a great mountain with fire burning was cast into the sea, and the third of the sea became blood, 9 and die did the third of the creatures that [are] in the sea, those having life, and the third of the ships were destroyed. 10 And the third messenger did sound, and there fell out of the heaven a great star, burning as a lamp, and it did fall upon the third of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters,
11 and the name of the star is called Wormwood, and the third of the waters doth become wormwood, and many of the men did die of the waters, because they were made bitter. 12 And the fourth messenger did sound, and smitten was the third of the sun, and the third of the moon, and the third of the stars, that darkened may be the third of them, and that the day may not shine — the third of it, and the night in like manner.
13 And I saw, and I heard one messenger, flying in the mid-heaven, saying with a great voice, `Wo, wo, wo, to those dwelling upon the land from the rest of the voices of the trumpet of the three messengers who are about to sound.’.
A state of emergency has been declared in Siberian town of Dudinka earlier this month after a powerful storm left residents without heating, water and electricity at freezing temperatures of up to -40 °C. Later, a water main broke causing several streets to flood and then freeze over. After slow response from authorities, pictures of frozen town started emerging on social media with residents asking for help.
Trails of fire lit up the sky as rockets blazed towards their targets, bright flashes visible for miles around when they hit in the fading light. Fighting for Debaltseve’s strategic crossroads and rail junction grew ever more intense on Jan. 29, despite the declaration of a “humanitarian corridor” to allow civilians to safely flee from a city that had 25,000 residents before the war.
Explosions could be heard thundering through the fields either side of the main road just minutes after a four-vehicle convoy – three coaches and one minibus packed with civilians – passed the last checkpoint on the outskirts. One driver had written “children” on the front of his vehicle in the hope that somehow it might help spare his precious cargo.
But as night closed in, many more residents discovered they had been left behind. A government-sponsored evacuation of the town, promised for 10 a.m., arrived at 3 p.m. with just three coaches. Shell-shocked civilians complained they had been abandoned without water, electricity or heating.
“In September, the city would have fallen easily to the Russians,” said Kirt, captain of the Azov battalion’s 2nd company, as he oversaw a regimental training exercise in an abandoned quarry. “But now it’s war, we have more weapons, more experience and are better prepared.”
Azov’s latest recruit was Andrii, a 52 year-old doctor who left the rebel-held city of Luhansk last week in disgust with the separatist administration there.
Neither wanted to be fully identified because of fear of retaliation.
“There are Russian soldiers and Chechen mercenaries all over the town,” Andrii said. “These are the only people making money. I haven’t been paid for seven months and there is hardly any food and medicine in the city.”
Andrii had never fired a weapon before. On Jan. 27 he emptied the magazine of an AK-47 into the quarry wall.

Relations between London and Moscow were rocked again yesterday when the Russian ambassador was summoned to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to explain why two of the country’s bombers had flown unannounced across the English Channel. The long-range nuclear-capable aircraft flew south of Bournemouth on Tuesday, forcing British Typhoons to scramble from their bases in Scotland and Lincolnshire. The manoeuvre took place on the same day that a public inquiry into the poisoning of the former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko began — an investigation that has irritated the Kremlin.
If it were not for Lair Antichrist President Obozo The 911 Clown and Antichrist Democrats, we would not know that trading 5 Antichrist Taliban terrorists, for Bo Bergdahl, a deserter, is not negotiating with terrorists. Yet when Jordan decides to trade a female terrorist responsible for a 2005 suicide bomb attack for a Japanese war veteran held by Antichrist ISIS, the White House says,
“We don’t pay ransom, we don’t give concessions to terrorist organizations.”
“We don’t get into negotiation with terrorists. We don’t pay ransom because that cash than fuels further kidnappings, which just continue to exacerbate the problem. So, we’re not going to do that.” (Fox News Sunday)
Meanwhile, it has been suggested that the Army has plans to charge Bergdahl with desertion. And one of the terrorists exchanged by Obozo for Bergdahl is now a top Antichrist ISIS commander.
The White House said that Antichrist Muslim Taliban is an “armed insurgency” and not a terrorist group, a handy semantic tactic to allow Antichrist Treasonous Bastard President Barack Obozo The 911 Clown to declare he was won the war on terror.
It is strange why no one thought of this solution before. You get rid of terror simply by re-defining it. Perhaps he has learned from the Antichrist Muslim Palestinian Authority how to re-write the dictionary. Mahmoud Abbas has convinced the world that “ultimatum,” as in “Israel must agree to my terms or else,” actually mean “negotiations.”
So is Antichrist Muslim Taliban a terrorist organization?
ABC News’ Jon Karl asked White House Press Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz Wednesday how the government can explain if there is any difference between a Jordanian and Americans agreement to free terrorists in return for the release of hostages.
Jordan has agreed to trade a convicted terrorists for the release by the Antichrist ISIS of one of their air force pilots. Karl asked if Jordan simply is not doing exactly what the United States did when it agreed to release five Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay in return for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.
Karl pointed out that Antichrist Muslim Taliban ”is clearly a terrorist organization,” like Antichrist ISIS.
No, no, no, said Schultz.
“We don’t make concessions to terrorist groups,” he said, assuring reporters that the Antichrist Islamic State “is a terrorist group.”
But what about Antichrist MuslimTaliban?
Wasn’t Taliban once the ruling government of Afghanistan that refused to hand over members of Antichrist Muslim Al Qaeda who were allegedly involved in the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington?
Doesn’t Antichrist Muslim Taliban maintain a powerful force in Afghanistan and Pakistan from where it attacks U.S. soldiers as well as children in a Pakistani school?
Isn’t Antichrist Taliban included in the State Dept.’s Specially Designated Global Terrorist list?
Doesn’t the National Counterterrorism Center list the “Antichrist Muslim Taliban Presence in Afghanistan” on a map of global terrorism presences?
The answer to all of these questions is, “yes.”
So Antichrist Muslim Taliban is a terrorist group,. right?
I don’t think that the Taliban, um — uh – the Antichrist Muslim Taliban is an armed insurgency.
White House Press Secretary tried a bit of damage control on Thursday.
“They [Antichrist Muslim Taliban] do carry out tactics that are akin to terrorism. They do pursue terror attacks in an effort to try to advance their agenda,” he told reporters.
Well, says Earnest, “it’s important to draw a distinction between the Antichrist Muslim Taliban and Antichrist Muslim al-Qaeda. The Antichrist Muslim Taliban has resorted to terror tactics, but those terror tactics have principally been focused on Afghanistan” although many American personnel and soldiers in Afghanistan “are in harm’s way.
Got it? Antichrist Muslim Taliban only uses “terror tactics.” If it quacks, it doesn’t mean it’s a duck. Maybe it’s a ventriloquist.
“The Antichrist Muslim Taliban is a very dangerous organization,” Earnest admitted but it still is different from Antichrist Muslim ISIS.
His twisted narrative goes like this:
What the President has pursued is a clear strategy for building up the central government of Afghanistan and the Afghan security forces, so that they could be responsible for security in their own country and take the fight to the Antichrist Taliban
That, however, is different than the strategy that we have pursued against Antichrist Muslim Al Qaeda. Antichrist Muslim Al Qaeda is a terrorist organization that has aspirations that extend beyond just the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan..
Antichrist Muslim Al-Qaeda and their affiliates around the globe have sought to carry out terror attacks against Americans and American interests all around the globe….
There’s no doubt that the threat from the Antichrist Muslim Taliban is different than the threat that is posed by Antichrist Muslim al-Qaeda.
By that reasoning, Antichrist Muslim Hamas is not a terrorist group because it is not a worldwide threat.
After the recent speech al-Sisi made calling for a reevaluation of the aspects of Antichrist Islamic thinking that are “antagonizing the entire world,” the Obozo 911 Clown State Department should be working closely with him on strategies for teaching against Antichrist jihad violence and Antichrist Islamic supremacism in Antichrist Muslim countries. Instead, it is meeting with his opposition, which is dedicated in its own words, according to a captured internal document, to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within, and sabotaging its miserable house.”
Waleed Sharaby, is a secretary-general of the Egyptian Revolutionary Council and a spokesman for Judges for Egypt, a group reported to have close ties to the Antichrist Brotherhood.
The delegation also includes Gamal Heshmat, a leading member of the Antichrist Brotherhood, and Abdel Mawgoud al-Dardery, a Antichrist Brotherhood member who served as a parliamentarian from Luxor.
Sharaby, the Antichrist Brotherhood-aligned judge, flashed the Antichrist Islamist group’s popular symbol in his picture at the State Department and wrote in a caption: “Now in the Obozo 911 Clown U.S. State Department. Your steadfastness impresses everyone,” according to an independent translation of the Arabic.
“The Obozo 911 Clown State Department continues to speak with Antichrist Muslim Brothers on the assumption that Egyptian politics are unpredictable, and the Antichrist Brotherhood still has some support in Egypt,” he said. “But when pro-Antichrist Brotherhood delegations then post photos of themselves making pro-Antichrist Brotherhood gestures in front of the Obozo 911 Clown State Department logo, it creates an embarrassment for the Obozo 911 Clown State Department.”…
Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo Clown Eric Holder made a career out of protecting and coddling financial oligarchs (his 1999 memo essentially invented “Too Big to Jail”). This was such a lucrative decision for Mr. Holder, that it allowed him to climb all the way to the top of his profession. The dividends that supporting this man ultimately paid to Wall Street criminals were priceless. Not only were they bailed out despite wrecking the U.S. economy, they have since funneled all of the wealth gains since 2008 to themselves, while remaining above the law. This truly remarkable heist is what both Antichrist NWO 666 Barack Hussein Obozo 911 POTUS Clown and Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo Clown Eric Holder will be remembered for by history. Congratulations guys.
When Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo Clown Eric Holder announced his resignation, many of us breathed a sigh of relief thinking it can’t get much worse, but not so fast. The authoritarian streak and rampant cronyism of the Obama administration is a well oiled machine. You didn’t think you’d get off that easily did you? Enter Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo Clown Loretta Lynch.
As if you needed proof that Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo Clown Ms. Lynch shares Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo Clown Eric Holder’s financial oligarch coddling tendencies, the International Business Times reports that:
WASHINGTON — In advance of her nomination hearing, Loretta Lynch did what every cabinet nominee is required to do: fill out a questionnaire listing all her media interviews so lawmakers can evaluate her candor. But the questionnaire U.S. attorney general nominee Lynch submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee has a notable omission. Lynch failed to include an interview in which she defended the controversial settlement she orchestrated with the bank HSBC.
The bank was accused of knowingly allowing Mexican drug cartels to launder money and of allowing violations of economic sanctions against countries including Iran, Libya, Sudan and Cuba. Lynch, then the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, allowed the bank to avoid prosecution in 2012 by paying a $1.9 billion fine and submitting to a monitor for five years to oversee compliance. Critics slammed the deal as an example of the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Clown administration’s pattern of going easy on the financial industry. In the Dec. 11, 2012, interview she did with CBS News, Lynch endorsed the settlement and dismissed criticism of the deal as “shortsighted.”
Lynch’s boss at the time of the HSBC deal, Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, who was then head of the Department of Justice’s criminal prosecution division, resigned after a scathing Frontline piece that highlighted Justice’s failure to try any of the banks tied to the recession and the risky trades that led to it. It was during a discussion of HSBC before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Attorney General Holder famously said some banks — although not HSBC specifically — were too big to prosecute.
Well there you have it. This woman, like Eric Holder, will be an unmitigated disaster for freedom in America.
That’s what “liberal” looks like in today’s America.
