2915 Gleaning The Mark Of The Beast Tribulation Theater Nuke Detonated
Said otherwise, for the first time ever, “developed” central banks are now monetizing more than 100% of global sovereign debt issuance!
We show this chart just in case there is still any confusion who is buying all the government debt and forcing bond yields ever lower, why $3.6 trillion in global debt is trading at negative yields, and why much more sovereign debt will very soon also reside in the terminal twilight zone of interest-bearing securities.
Recall that many had touted 2015 as the year when the global “recovery”, originally scheduled for the first half of 2013, would finally kick in. In fact it was said that this would be the year of central bank “renormalization.”
While real median incomes have increased by 7% over the thirty years we see that the cost to provide medical care to our families has increased by 400%, the cost to educate our families has increased by 655%, each workers share of social welfare has increased by 124% and each worker’s share of consumer debt has increased by 142%. Now taken in that context a 7% increase in income just doesn’t seem to mean much. In fact, it makes one wonder how in the hell a family even gets by nowadays and how in the hell we are ever going to pay for it all.
And the simple answer respectively is, debt and we won’t. I hope I am starting to get through to everyone on the complexity, enormity and significance of the Giant Con. If nothing else understand that what you and everyone you know has acquired by way of credit could disappear in a heartbeat and does nothing to improve your or their standard of living. Likewise every bit of GDP that is a result of debt consumption either at the consumer or government level could disappear and does nothing to suggest economic growth.
Those things you own outright do absolutely represent your standard of living. This doesn’t mean you cannot use credit but understand credit makes you no better off but may only make you feel better off until, of course, it doesn’t. Understand that when the measurement of our economy (i.e. our money) is based only on perception well then very little is real about that measurement. Why do you think Jack Lew, James Bullard, Jim Plosser, etc., etc. are constantly doing national televised interviews when before 2008 and certainly before 2000 most average Americans had absolutely never heard of a Fed governor or FOMC meeting?
The answer is because it is requiring that much more effort to stabilize the perception of tomorrow’s economic strength and thus the USD, despite the measure of the relative value of USD (i.e. vs other currencies). And because it is requiring such a significant amount of effort tells us that differential between the perceived and the true strength is growing materially.
We must begin to heed all of the warning calls that are now echoing off the walls. The universe always provides warnings of danger but we so often fail to observe them. It is why poisonous fish are brightly coloured, why rattle snakes have a rattle and why bankers and politicians are so flamboyantly obnoxiously arrogant. These things make it easy for us to spot danger but only so far as we are willing to acknowledge them.
The confluence of government and business has created a corporate fascist surveillance state. Trust in government, politicians, bankers, and the media is plummeting.
This will drive the next phase of this Fourth Turning.

Any reference to a company seeking to dominate the “gourmet grilled cheese space” is desperately seeking a twin reference to a slogan from late 1999 (right before the bubble burst):

Three months ago Ambassador John Bolton said Obozo was giving Iran, “An open path to nuclear weapons.”
And now Obozo’s going to subsidize the program, too.
Pakistan is continuing to develop tactical nuclear weapons for use on the battlefield against India, a senior U.S. intelligence official said this week.
In providing a worldwide threat assessment to the House Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Vincent R. Stewart, the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, discussed Pakistan’s expanding nuclear delivery systems.
“We anticipate that Pakistan will continue [its] development of new delivery systems, including cruise missiles and close-range ‘battlefield’ nuclear weapons to augment its existing ballistic missiles,” Stewart said during his opening statement, according to an official transcript.
Tactical nuclear weapons are low-yield, short-range nuclear missiles designed for use against opposing troops on the battlefield, rather than against enemy cities like strategic nuclear weapons. Both the U.S. and Soviet Union deployed them in Europe (among other places) during the Cold War, and Washington and Moscow continue to deploy them today. They are not covered in existing U.S.-Russian arms control treaties like New START.

In April 2011, Pakistan first tested the Hatf-9 (Nasr) missile, which it called a “Short Range Surface to Surface Multi Tube Ballistic Missile.” In the official statement announcing the test, Pakistan’s military said the Hatf-9 missile was nuclear-capable and had been developed to be used at “shorter ranges.”
“NASR, with a range of 60 km, carries nuclear warheads of appropriate yield with high accuracy, shoot and scoot attributes. This quick response system addresses the need to deter evolving threats,” the statement said. It added that the “test was a very important milestone in consolidating Pakistan’s strategic deterrence capability at all levels of the threat spectrum.”
According to a deep background source, that is a cover story and this massive explosion was actually the Russia’s “father of all bombs,” which they bragged about in 2007. The photo that accompanied the 2007 Telegraph article, did in fact leave a “mushroom cloud,” and is what appears when a nuclear bomb is dropped, which is why initial social media reports thought that the explosion from Sunday night was a nuclear attack.

The elections that took place in November 2014 must have told the Socialist Democrats in Congress and the anti-Christian, pro Antichrist Islam Obozo Administration that the great majority of the country’s citizens are fed up with ever-increasing taxes, mindless and killing profligate spending and more growth in deficit creating, and Obozo-welfare-type government.
Why is it that the simple message of “NO” sent by the voters in the 2014 elections, is not understood by these myopic, warp-minded, socially and governmentally bankrupt do-gooders who say they’re for the “little people” when in fact they’re actually strangling those same people?
And further, why are there so many followers of these bankrupt and country-killing do-gooders who give this feckless and incompetent sorry excuse for a country leader a 40-something percent approval rating when they are the ones he is killing, smoothly, but not softly?
Of course, I could probably answer my own question by citing the fact that here on the land which the above ‘sorry excuse for a country leader’ performs his inefficient, and unfair favoritism decisions, “nearly HALF of the country pay NO income taxes whatsoever” per Jon Dougherty of Absoluterights.com in his online article of February 03, 2015 titled, ‘Obozo’s 2016 Budget Request is more taxing, more spending, more government’.
As reported by The Hill, Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 POTUS Clown is proposing a 2016 budget that spends nearly $4 trillion, the centerpiece of which is additional taxes on “the wealthy” and on businesses, the two economic demographics that already contribute (by far) the bulk of the nation’s income taxes.
Mr. Dougherty quotes this Obozo message when speaking to Congress: “These proposals will put more money in middle-class pockets, raise wages and bring more high-paying jobs to America. To pay for them, the budget will cut inefficient spending and close tax loopholes to make sure that everyone pays their fair share.”
There are multitudes of American citizens that would really like to know just what he means by saying that. Just what is a “fair share”? And how does Obozo justify saying that when damn near half of the people in this country do not even pay ONE PENNY in income taxes and yet, receive a check from the government along with food stamps that are just like money. And, unbelievably, one of Obozo’s proposals I heard mentioned, is a TAX CUT FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS! This sounds like more of Obozo’s “moon-dust” dreams.
Russia and Egypt might soon exclude the US dollar and use their national currencies in the settlement of accounts in bilateral trade, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview to Egyptian media ahead of his Monday visit to the country.
“I should note that we already use national currencies for trade with a number of the CIS [Commonwealth of Independent States] states, and China. This practice proves its worth; we are ready to adopt it in our relations with Egypt as well. This issue is being discussed in substance by relevant agencies of both countries.”

The leader of France’s rightwing Front National (FN), Marine Le Pen, has called Brussels “American lackeys” over the EU’s Ukraine policy. She further accused Washington of attempting to start a “war in Europe” and expand NATO towards Russia’s borders.
“The Americans have made one mistake after another and today they have simply been discredited,” said Fillon.
the war is already lost and we are deluding ourselves if we think that any of our oh-so-earnest conservation or sustainability or green projects make any difference whatsoever.
The latest example of the harm being done to civil liberties in the Digital Age comes in the form of surveillance technology now being employed by dozens of federal agencies and police departments that enables agents and officers to actually see inside homes. No possibility of abuse here, right?
As reported by USA Today, some 50 law enforcement agencies have secretly (of course) outfitted officers with new radar devices that effectively allow them to peak through walls of houses to see whether anyone is inside. Naturally, this new law enforcement “technique” is raising even more concerns about illicit, unconstitutional surveillance in a time when technology has made such surveillance all too possible (and all too abused).
The paper further reported in its online edition:
Those agencies, including the FBI and the U.S. Marshals Service, began deploying the radar systems more than two years ago with little notice to the courts and no public disclosure of when or how they would be used. The technology raises legal and privacy issues because the U.S. Supreme Court has said officers generally cannot use high-tech sensors to tell them about the inside of a person’s house without first obtaining a search warrant.
Fourth Amendment concerns
That federal agencies and other law enforcement entities began using these devices without telling anyone says, right off the bat, that they know such technology would likely not pass legal muster.
USA Today said the radar devices work like “finely tuned motion detectors,” employing radio waves to home in on movements as miniscule as someone breathing, and from a distance of more than 50 feet. They are able to detect both persons inside homes and also if and when persons inside the structure are moving.
Radars discovered by accident by a federal court
“The idea that the government can send signals through the wall of your house to figure out what’s inside is problematic,” Christopher Soghoian, the American Civil Liberties Union’s principal technologist, told USA Today. “Technologies that allow the police to look inside of a home are among the intrusive tools that police have.”
The ACLU was aware that the technology was coming down the pipe. In a December 2011 paper titled Protecting Privacy from Aerial Surveillance, the legal assistance civil rights organization noted that the U.S. military was currently developing it.
The use of the radars by federal agents was largely hidden from the public until December 2014, when a federal appears court in Denver said officers had employed one in a case before they entered a home to arrest a man for parole violation.
The 10th Circuit Court judges voiced alarm that agents had used the new device without first obtaining a search warrant. They warned that “the government’s warrantless use of such a powerful tool to search inside homes poses grave Fourth Amendment questions.”
BIG BROTHER NOW: The Rise Of The Global Police State – Police Across The United States Now Deploying Radar Devices That See Inside Your Home And Samsung’s Smart TVs Are Capable Of Listening To Your Conversations!
Careful what you say: Your Samsung TV might be listening.
Even viewers who do not activate the voice recognition feature are still at risk of being snooped on, as the machine continues to collect data through its microphones. The only way to stop a Samsung smart TV from eavesdropping on your conversation is to disable voice recognition data collection in the settings menu.
Samsung claims it collects transcribed voice data in order to improve the technology’s features.
An investigation last year by consumer magazine Which? found that smart TVs made by LG, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, and Toshiba track people’s viewing habits – something consumers agree to when they accept the TV’s terms and conditions.
Users who choose not to accept their TV’s terms and conditions may end up reverting to a not-so-smart television. While Toshiba and LG block internet access and apps, Samsung reportedly stops customers from using the TV at all.
Sony is the only manufacturer which blocks the tracking of television usage without restricting other functions.
The Facebook project known as Deep Face can decern the accuracy of the true identity of any picture of you. DeepFace AI system is now powerful enough to spot users in the 400 million photos uploaded to the social network every single day.
Facebook is claiming good intentions with the Deep Face program. Facebook claims that instead of tagging users in embarrassing and incriminating photos without their permission, users will be able to first see the photos they are appearing in and then have the choice to blur out their faces.
The Deep Face program works for strangers’ pictures as well as ones from friends, but users can only see the identities of people they already know.
But with good or bad intentions, Facebook holds all the cards and will still be able to identify you in any picture and hold on to that very valuable personal data. Additionally, other entities who are researching similar technology specifically the government and private companies such as Google may very well have access to this data as well.
In a broad-reaching report by 60 Minutes about DARPA and the Internet of Things, the Department of Defense has shown that it can hack General Motors’ OnStar system to remote control a last-gen Chevrolet Impala.7
DARPA has a budget of around half a billion dollars a year and its Information Innovation Office is headed by Dan Kaufman, who employs a team of researchers that focus on increasing national security through revolutionary projects. One of those projects involves hacking the connected car, and this is what they found:
According to the report, which is scant on technical details, DARPA engineers dialed in through the Impala’s OnStar system, transmitted a data packet that confused the internal computers, and then planted a malicious bit of code that allowed it to reprogram control systems on the ECU.8
That allowed them to do everything from turn on the windshield wipers to honk the horn, and even controll the throttle and brakes, putting a hapless Lesley Stahl through a line of cones.9
After more than a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan, America’s most profound legacy could be that it set the world order back to the Middle Ages.
While this is a slight exaggeration, a recent examination by Sean McFate, a former Army paratrooper who later served in Africa working for Dyncorp International and is now an associate professor at the National Defense University, suggests that the Pentagon’s dependence on contractors to help wage its wars has unleashed a new era of warfare in which a multitude of freshly founded private military companies are meeting the demand of an exploding global market for conflict.
“Now that the United States has opened the Pandora’s Box of mercenarianism,” McFate writes in The Modern Mercenary: Private Armies and What they Mean for World Order, “private warriors of all stripes are coming out of the shadows to engage in for-profit warfare.”
From 1999 to 2008, at the peak of the wars, Pentagon spending on outsourcing alone increased from $165 billion to $466 billion a year. Attempts at oversight have been pathetic, as documented by the government’s own inspectors general time and again. Success at regulating or imposing codes of conduct on contractors has proven elusive, too. The industry remains as opaque as it has been unassailable where it really counts—the pocketbook.
“The industry is here to stay; it’s not going anywhere,” said McFate a former employee of Dyncorp, which cut its teeth in Bosnia. Dyncorp thrived as one of Washington’s primary contractors for both security and reconstruction in Afghanistan and Iraq despite intermittent accusations of overbilling and underperformance on the job.
Perhaps the most infamous of all contractors was Blackwater, which deflected charges of fraud, violence against civilians and murder for years before it was forced to “rebrand.” Four of its former guards were convicted of murder in October, however, in connection with the massacre of 17 Iraqis in Nisour Square in 2007.
Blackwater’s founder Erik Prince has dipped and dodged his way through several incarnations of his company (no longer “Blackwater,” it was renamed “Xe” and is now “Academi”), and has been successful at running a number of other so-called shell companies and international security operations inside and outside of the U.S. government trough, including anti-piracy enterprises in North Africa.
In his post-American days (Prince left the U.S. for Abu Dhabi in 2010 amid a series of federal charges and lawsuits dogging Blackwater), Prince perched himself “at the top of the management chain” at Saracen International, a security group made up of hard-core mercenary veterans hired in 2009 to train indigenous forces in Puntland, Somalia, and to serve as a security detail for the embattled president of the fragile central government in Mogadishu.
The border is closing rapidly. First it was FATCA hunting Americans with any assets overseas whatsoever. Now just two days after taking charge of the committee chairing the House Homeland Security subcommittee hearing, U.S. Rep. John Katko introduced two bills. He is looking to effectively close the borders using terrorism as the excuse as always to hunt down Americans. Katko is a former federal prosecutor. So he knows precisely what he is doing writing a law that is so broad, that anyone suspected of a crime cannot leave the country. This is any crime. Keeping gold in a safe deposit box is money laundering carrying up to 25 years in prison.
Katko’s bill will direct the TSA Office of Inspection Accountability Act (H.R. 719), requiring TSA to now conduct criminal Investigators spending at least 50% of their time “investigating, apprehending, or detaining individuals suspected of committing a crime.” This bill will now result in the arrest of anyone for any alleged crime whatsoever and that will apply to taxes. Katko is constructing a highly dangerous version of the Berlin Wall around all American citizens. He is converting the TSA into a police force less concerned about air safety and focused more on catching anyone the government can argue violates some law federal or state. It is so broad, this would apply
Secret documents reveal that global banking giant HSBC profited from doing business with arms dealers who channeled mortar bombs to child soldiers in Africa, bag men for Third World dictators, traffickers in blood diamonds and other international outlaws.
The leaked files, based on the inner workings of HSBC’s Swiss private banking arm, relate to accounts holding more than $100 billion. They provide a rare glimpse inside the super-secret Swiss banking system — one the public has never seen before.

Valentino Rossi, Professional motorcycle rider
Rossi is a multiple MotoGP World Champion. He is one of the most successful motorcyclists ever, with nine Grand Prix World Championships. In 2007, Italian authorities investigated Rossi for suspected tax evasion based on his decision to live in London in 2000. In 2008, Rossi and the tax authorities said they had reached an agreement to settle the case, requiring the motorcyclist to pay €19 million ($27.6 million).
Valentino Rossi became client of HSBC in 2003. He held a client account named “Kikiki 62” that listed two bank accounts. Together they held as much as $23.9 million in 2006/2007.

Needless to say, for those whose names appear above, or in the yet undisclosed remainder of some 100,000 clients of HSBC, first of all our condolences, and second: prepare for some rather extensive tax audits in your native country. That, or worse.
“There is no way out” for Greece from its treaty obligations warns German lawmaker Michael Fuchs (Angela Merkel’s deputy caucus chairman) telling Bloomberg TV that conditions set for Greece by The Troika (EU, ECB, IMF) for bailout funds “have to be fulfilled…. That’s it, very simple.” The Greeks remain adamant that they will not ask for an extension to the bailout mechanism with both Tsipras and Varoufakis confirming that a bridge agreement is required and the latter adding “the ECB has lost control of monetary policy,” demanding the Troika structure come to an end. Then German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble exclaimed at the G-20 meeting that “Greece either has to find a way to get bridge financing, or, if they want to do it with us, they need a program,” seeming to push the door open to possible Russian financial aid for Greece as Europe’s pivot to Putin appears to be rising.
But perhaps most significantly is France’s continued apparent pivot towards Russia… Following Francois Hollande’s calls for greater autonomy for Eastern Ukraine, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has come out in apparent support of Russia (and specifically against the US).
Following yesterday’s summary of the utter farce that the Minsk Summit/Ukraine “peace” deal talks have become, the various parties involved appear to be fracturing even faster today. The headlines are coming thick and fast but most prescient appears to be: Despite John Kerry’s denial of any split between Germany and US over arms deliveries to Ukraine, German Foreign Minister Steinmeier slammed Washington’s strategy for being “not just risky but counterproductive.” But perhaps most significantly is France’s continued apparent pivot towards Russia… Following Francois Hollande’s calls for greater autonomy for Eastern Ukraine, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy has come out in apparent support of Russia (and specifically against the US), “we are part of a common civilization with Russia,” adding, “the interests of the Americans with the Russians are not the interests of Europe and Russia.” Even NATO appears to have given up hope of peace as Stoltenberg’s statements show little optimism and the decision by Cyprus to allow Russia to use its soil for military facilities suggests all is not at all well in the European ‘union’.
The world has come ominously close to a nuclear war in the past and it could happen again as Russia and the West have slipped back into what seems like another Cold War, world-renowned scholar Noam Chomsky tells RT’s Sophie&Co.
A giant explosion which rocked the Ukrainian city of Donetsk sparked fears of a ‘tactical nuke’ after pro-government forces shelled a rebel-held chemical plant.
Mobile phone footage captured the moment of the explosion, which turned the night’s sky orange and was so powerful it could be heard as far away as downtown Donetsk, almost four miles away.
The blast came as diplomats predicted that Russia could target other Baltic states, if they are allowed to hold on to eastern Ukraine.
However, pro-Russian rebels said that the huge explosion was caused by Ukrainian artillery shell hitting the chemical plant, which lies in the middle of the Ukrainian industrial heartland in Donetsk.
Earlier, Ukrainian far-right politician and paramilitary commander Dmitry Yarosh, who is involved in the Kiev military action in southeastern Ukraine, confirmed on his Facebook page that the explosion was caused by Ukrainian artillery
The preceding videos were posted on YouTube today, February 8, 2015. The explosion shown has the markings of a tactical nuclear weapon. Mushroom clouds in the wake of nuclear explosions have very distinctive signatures as seen in the photos below. There has been much speculation about the use of nukes by Kiev in the face of their crushing defeats at the hands of the rebels. Furthermore, the ruling junta has repeatedly demonstrated a complete lack of respect for the Geneva Conventions. There has been ample proof of various war crimes committed by Kiev throughout the Eastern Ukraine including the deliberate targeting of civilian populations as well as premeditated acts of genocide. Their aim appears to be the annihilation of the Russian Speakers at every opportunity.
WORLD WAR III OR INFRASTRUCTURE COLLAPSE: Are Tactical Nuclear Weapons Being Used In The Eastern Ukraine By The Kiev Junta – Spectacular Explosion Near Chemical Plant Leaves Massive Mushroom Cloud In Donetsk?!
Remember the peaceful photos of Soviet Donetsk from 1984 we had yesterday? Well this is Donetsk as of six hours ago according to the locals. I am not sure what exactly those explosions are but there are rumors based on the Ukrainian top military authority quoted by a journalist in his Facebook post where he says some quote “tactical nuclear weapons were used against our soldiers in Donetsk airport”. Those were fired with 2S4 “Tyulpan” Soviet self-propelled mortar which (quoting Wikipedia) “can fire armour-piercing, chemical and nuclear rounds”.
He said that the explosions were so strong that buildings collapsed totally “from basement to the fifth story”. “If not for those Tyulpan’s we could stay there for a few months more”.

Having fallen for 47 of the last 51 days, The Baltic Dry Index (tracking the cost of shipping dry bulk from iron ore to grains) has been collapsing in a well-documented manner by Zero Hedge (though not the mainstream media). With Cramer having told investors of its importance previously, it will be hard to ignore the fact that, as of this morning, the index of global shipping costs has never (ever) been lower at 554. We leave it to readers to decide what they think this means (but we already know what it means for shippers and ship-building companies).

On the back of the total collapse in Chinese imports and exports, is this any surprise
The tweet from Matt Drudge seen above is getting an awful lot of attention across the internet as Drudge warns a ‘greasy Obozo in Grammy vid…hoarse…watery eyes…like he knows something terrible coming….very unsettling.’ Coincidentally, or not, this occurred at the same time as a massive explosion in the Ukraine, leading us to ask, what does Barack Obozo know that we don’t know? Certainly Drudge is getting the same feeling of ominous events on the horizon leading to this Tweet.
The 1st video below is a breakdown of Drudge’s tweet from All News Pipeline friend Freedom Fighter Reports while speculation on what Barack Obozo might know, causing him to look like a jumbled mess as seen above, range from World War 3 with China/Russia on the horizon to a total global economic breakdown as shared in the 2nd and 3rd videos below from SignsofThyComing and FullSpectrumSurvival.
