Jacob Rothschild, the 78 year-old banker and chairman of RIT Capital Partners, has delivered savers in the £2.3bn trust a stark warning about global instability and the fragility of future returns. He used his chairman’s statement in the trust’s 2014 annual report to outline his concerns, saying that on top of a “difficult economic background” investors face “a geopolitical situation perhaps as dangerous as any we have faced since World War II”.
Jacob Rothschild is worried. Iranian troops are on the Syrian border of Israel, and in Iraq. Libyan oilfields are burning. Perhaps there are clues in Hillary’s secretive emails. Former Indiana attorney and conservative activist John Price, author of the End of America, calls in from Costa Rica to warn that a June 2015 Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage will usher in a wave of persecution against churches who oppose it.
COMING SOON TO YOUR CHURCH
There you have it Denmark. Draghi will see your minus 75 bps and raise you negative 225 on top.
Perhaps echoing two entire nations’ frustration, one reporter loses his cool when Mario Draghi explains how everyone else in Europe gets free money except Greece and Cyprus…
Being heard into the mic of a reporter sitting next to him and about to ask a question, Vikettos accused the ECB chief of allowing only what he termed ‘his own journalists’ to take the floor.
‘What are we, decorative elements?’ he is reported to have said, before shouting out ‘You’re biased’ and making a furious exit. It seems that a Draghi aide attempted to translate the goings on to the governor, mumbling something about a protest.
We found out that a number of Cypriot reporters actually shared Vikettos’ views, with a daily paper referring to ‘tension at Draghi press conference, as Cypriot journalists complain of being sidelined’.
Everything happened so fast that the state broadcasters’ cameras missed the stormy exit. Really, come on! There also seemed to be a number of complaints about the quality of translation, with at least one source telling CW that they heard new economic terms being uttered.
After what feels like years of anticipation and promises, we found out last month that Q€ will happen. Today we find out exactly how Mario Draghi’s magic trillion euro spending spree will occur (or not). Despite all the ‘facts’ surrounding a lack of liquidity, willing sellers, and available securities we are sure Draghi will have an answer for how he will fit 10lbs of ‘stuff’ into a 5lb bag. We also expect him to exuberasntly forecast higher inflation (less deflation) and stronger growth – because if he doesn’t, what does that say about his optimism that Q€ is anything but more wealth transfers?
Draghi’s devalued the Euro over 20% in 6 months…How much further?
The chart below showing the annual increase, or rather, decrease in US factory orders which have now declined for 6 months in a row (so one can’t blame either the west coast port strike or the weather) pretty much speaks for itself, and also which way the US “recovery” (whose GDP is about to crash to the 1.2% where the Atlanta Fed is modeling it, or even lower) is headed.
Since the start of February, 48 US macro data items have missed expectations and 8 have beaten. Since then the S&P 500 has risen over 5.5% (and the Nasdaq even more) and 10Y yields are up 50bps. Bloomberg’s US Macro Surprise index is now as weak as it was just after Lehman and is falling at the fastest pace since Summer 2012. While everyone is well aware that markets can stay irrational longer than a trader can stay liquid, one has to wonder just how long this farce can continue before even the most effusive talking head has to admit… things ain’t great.
The divergence is growing…
As the St Louis Fed so kindly reminds us, the two previous times US manufacturing orders declined at this rate on an unadjusted (or adjusted) basis, the US economy was already in a recession.
And now, time for consensus to be shocked once again when the Fed yanks the rug from under the feet of the rite-hike-istas.
Following this morning’s dire Challenger Job Cuts data, it appears the hard reality that lower oil prices are not unambiguously good for America is setting in. Initial Jobless Claims surged last week (after a big jump the week before) to 320k (far worse than the 295k expectation) to the highest since May 2014. Non-seasonally-0adjusted claims surged 29,361 to 310,000 making 2015 the worst start to the year for claims since 2009. Continuing Claims also rose. Since the end of QE3 and the end of the government’s fiscal year, the trend of improvment has clearly ended and a new regime of weakening labor markets has begun.
The Antichrist NWO 666 Chinese do not plan to live in a world dominated by the Antichrist NWO 666 Sirius U.S. PetroDebtNoteDollar for much longer. Antichrist NWO 666 Chinese leaders have been calling for the Antichrist NWO 666 Sirius U.S. PetroDebtNoteDollar to be replaced as the primary global reserve currency for a long time, but up until now they have never been very specific about what they would put in place of it. Many have assumed that the Chinese simply wanted some new international currency image to be created. But what if that is not what the Antichrist NWO 666 Chinese had in mind? What if they have always wanted their own currency to become the single most dominant currency on the entire planet? What you are about to see is rather startling, but it shouldn’t be a surprise. When it comes to economics and finance, the Antichrist NWO 666 Chinese have always been playing chess while the western world has been playing checkers. Sadly, we have gotten to the point where checkmate is on the horizon.
On Wednesday, I came across an excellent article by Simon Black. What he had to say in that article just about floored me…
When I arrived to Bangkok the other day, coming down the motorway from the airport I saw a huge billboard—and it floored me.
The billboard was from the Antichrist NWO 666 Bank of China. It said: “RMB: New Choice; The World Currency”
Given that the Bank of China is more than 70% owned by the government of the Antichrist People’s Republic of China, I find this very significant.
It means that Antichrist China is literally advertising its currency overseas,and it’s making sure that everyone landing at one of the world’s busiest airports sees it. They know that the future belongs to them and they’re flaunting it.
we regularly track: namely, the percentage of sub-penny trades which indicate price improvement by the minimum permissible amount of 1/100th of a penny per share. Our data on this statistic is charted below. Rather than the expected drop in this value, it remains in a narrow range, indicating that over 25% of all price improved stock trades are only being improved by 1/100th of a cent per share.
There is a distinct loser in price improvement: the trader or investor that posts a displayed limit order to the market. Price improvement ends up costing these investors at least $1 billion a year: we have thoroughly documented this here, and discussed again here, and here, and here (you get the idea).
only “covered orders” are in the report (details here). This is important, because order types/sizes not covered in this report are fair game to Wall Street – caveat emptor.
Barron’s was only using Market orders in their analysis
So far this year corporate bond issues total $241 billion. That’s a staggering $1.4 trillion annualized run rate—-or nearly double the run rate prior to the financial blow-off in 2008. Yet virtually all of this massive debt issuance has been cycled into after-burner fuel for the rocketing stock market. During the month of February alone, stock buybacks for the S&P 500 were a record $104 billion.
Is it any wonder that Wall Street threatens a hissy fit upon even a hint that the Fed’s rotten regime of ZIRP might be ended after 80 months? After all, it has amounted to free money for carry trade speculators and a cattle prod driving bond fund managers into corporate debt.
Here are the baleful facts. Total corporate and non-corporate business debt outstanding has been on a tear since the pre-crisis peak in late 2007. At that time, business credit outstanding totaled $11 trillion—–a figure which has now ballooned to $14 trillion. So despite the propaganda about a healthy post-crisis deleveraging, its been full steam ahead with debt issuance in the business sector.
But the overwhelming share of that $3 trillion has gone into financial engineering including trillions of stock buybacks during the last six years. By contrast, business CapEx has been tepid at best, and a downright disaster in reality.
Thus, during Q4 2007 the annualized rate of business spending on structures and plant and equipment totaled $1.447 trillion in constant dollars. Seven years later in Q4 2014—after massive monetary stimulus and endless Wall Street cheerleading about a rebound in CapEx—– the figure was $1.496 trillion at an annual rate. If you do not have a hand calculator, that miniscule difference amounts to a 0.4% annual rate of gain. Given the dubious inflation measures embedded in the governments price deflators, the “real” rate of gain since 2007 could easily be zero or even negative.
Self-evidently, whether the seven year trend of CapEx growth is 0.4% or even lower it reflects at drastic deterioration from prior business cycles—-notwithstanding the Fed’s massive financial repression designed to jump start investment spending, and the incremental $3 trillion that US businesses actually borrowed during this period.
During the 7-years after the business cycle peak of 2000, by contrast, real spending on structures and equipment increased by nearly 2% per annum or at 4X greater rate than during the current so-called recovery. And during the 1990-1997 cycle, the annual rate of gain in real business CapEx was 4.3%. Stated differently, during that seven year period, cumulative real business investment rose by 31% compared to the tiny 3.4% gain during the equivalent cyclical period since 2007.
Once upon a time in the pre-Keynsian world, economists and practical men of finance knew something else, as well. Namely, that what counts for long-term growth and genuine prosperity is the level of the capital stock, not merely the gross rate of business investment spending in any given quarter or other short-run period.
The fact is, our Keynesian GDP accounts do not account for capital consumption or depreciation of the existing capital stock in the famous reckoning of GDP. But if new CapEx does not replace current depreciation the productive capacity of the macro-economy is falling—notwithstanding the positive number for the “I” (investment) component in the GDP equation.
In fact, business sector depreciation is currently running at a $1.1 trillion annual rate for the US economy, meaning that gross spending on structures and plant and equipment barely covers the capital resources used up in current production.
Here is where the record boom in corporate debt issuance hides the true decay of productive capacity in the US business sector. During Q4 2007, real net investment after capital consumption in the US business sector was about $400 billion at an annual rate. By contrast, during Q4 2014 the comparable number was about $300 billion.
That’s right. Real net investment in the US business sector is now 25% smaller than it was before the crisis; and before it was “solved” with massive money printing, false interest rates at the zero bound and the explosion of corporate borrowing that resulted therefrom.
This drastic shrinkage is something totally new under the sun, and not in a good way at all. During the 7-years after the 1990 peak, for example, real net business investment expanded by 50%.
In fact, during Bill Clinton’s last year in office, the balance sheet of the Fed totaled $500 billion and real net business investment that year came in at $450 billion.
Let’s see. The Eccles Building has grown its balance sheet by 9X since the turn of the century, but real net investment in the business sector has plunged by 33%!
So thanks for the corporate bond bubble, Fed. Its just one more nail in the coffin of capitalist prosperity in America.
We separated the results for Market orders from Marketable Limits, not expecting to see much difference. We were wrong. Market orders show significantly greater price improvement than Marketable Limit orders, about 4 times more!
Market orders averaged 31 cents per $10,000 worth of Apple stock, while Marketable Limit orders averaged just 9 cents. This means for every $10,000 worth of Apple stock, the wholesaler was giving an average price improvement of 31 cents for Market orders, and just 9 cents for Marketable Limits.
Barron’s and their readers need to know that only about 10% of all orders from SEC 605 reports were being used in the study, and the group of orders chosen just happened to show Wholesalers in the best possible light.
The Barron’s article makes no mention that it focused on the tiniest fraction of data which happens to support Wholesalers.
When searching for contact information, we came upon a the following set of comments buried in the code that Barron’s published as part of the story:
This comment indicates they knew full well that Marketable Limit orders would have completely changed their story.
Normally this is where we would write a blistering conclusion. However, for a publication that commands the respect of Barron’s, we’ve been robbed of words.
Perhaps a simpler explanation would suffice? How about this one:
The US has surrendered its sovereignty to a clique of financial oligarchs. Having nobody at all to answer to, this American (and to some extent international) oligarchy has been ruining the financial condition of the country, running up staggering levels of debt, destroying savings and retirements, debasing the currency and so on. The inevitable end-game is that the Federal Reserve (along with the central banks of other “developed economies”) will end up buying up all the sovereign debt issuance with money they print for that purpose, and in the end this inevitably leads to hyperinflation and national bankruptcy. A very special set of conditions has prevented these two events from taking place thus far, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t, because that’s what always happens, sooner or later.
Now, let’s suppose a financial oligarchy has seized control of the country, and, since it can’t control its own appetites, is running it into the ground. Then it would make sense for it to have some sort of back-up plan for when the whole financial house of cards falls apart. Ideally, this plan would effectively put down any chance of revolt of the downtrodden masses, and allow the oligarchy to maintain security and hold onto its wealth. Peacetime is fine for as long as it can placate the populace with bread and circuses, but when a financial calamity causes the economy to crater and bread and circuses turn scarce, a handy fallback is war.
“In the U.S., for example, it took 200 years to increase the federal debt from zero to $9 trillion. But since 2007, just before the crisis started, U.S. debt has more than doubled from $9 trillion to over $18 trillion. So in 8 years Bernanke and Yellen have presided over a debt creation of more than $9 trillion that previously took the U.S. 230 years to achieve.
he stock market is at a high, despite earnings and sales declining. And the latest forecast by the Atlanta Fed for 2015 has now been revised down to 1.2 percent growth. I’m quite certain that in Q3 and Q4 of this year GEP will be negative.
But according to the mainstream media, the dollar strength indicates that the U.S. economy is growing. Yes, since every currency in the world is falling, there must be one currency that rises. So the dollar is the last currency standing. But, to me, it’s very clear that this dollar strength will only last a couple of months.
U.S. Debt And Derivatives A Staggering $600 Trillion
The dollar is only backed by unsustainable levels of debt and zero interest rates because U.S. debt is now at $250 trillion, including unfunded liabilities, plus there is another $350 trillion in worthless derivatives. And with most production capacity exported to China, there is absolutely nothing that supports the dollar.
Situation To Unravel Fast
Underneath the dollar there is no support. Instead there is a black hole. So once the dollar falls and the U.S. economy with it, things will start to unravel very fast, not just in the U.S. but in the whole world. Although other currencies will gain relative to the dollar, investors should not join any of these currencies on their final leg to the bottom. Because all currencies will continue to decline in real terms and the only money which will hold its purchasing power is, of course, gold.
Massive Worldwide Wealth Destruction
So when the stock market turns, which could be in the next couple of months, we are unlikely to revisit current highs for many years. After the 1929 peak it took the Dow 25 years to regain the high of 1929. This time we are looking at a much bigger worldwide bubble, so it could take a lot longer for markets in real terms to reach the current highs once they have started the great decline.
And for people who don’t see that economic activity is already declining worldwide, just look at the Baltic Dry Index: It’s now down 57 percent in one year and 30 percent in 2015. Eric, that is a very severe warning indicator exposing what is really happening in the world. Investors around the world who fail to heed that warning risk massive wealth destruction.”
Presidents should get the power to declare economic emergencies along the lines to declare war, said former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke on Monday.
It might make sense to give “the president some ability to declare emergencies or take extraordinary actions and not put that all on the Fed,” Bernanke said at a conference. “The constitution gives the president significant flexibility to respond to military situations,” in part because they are chaotic, he noted.
“I am sure it is not politically possible, but it would be worth thinking about,” the former Fed chairman said.
– From the MarketWatch article: Presidents Should Be Able to Declare Economic Emergencies: Bernanke
For those of us who remain horrified and disgusted by the 2008-09 Federal Reserve and U.S. government bailout of the kleptocratic oligarchs who created the crisis, the above comments by the mastermind of this historic theft should be extremely concerning.
Although bankers and oligarchs got everything they wanted and more from the post crisis panic, what seems to bother Bernanke is that some of the response measures had to be pursued publicly. By calling for the U.S. President to declare economic emergencies in future crises, he is explicitly saying he doesn’t want Congress involved at all, even if just ceremonially. This man is a dyed in the wool fascist.
Antichrist NWO 666 U.N. special envoy: Antichrist Netanyahu recognizes signs of times
“The prime minister spoke about the long history of the Jewish people over 4,000 years. He understands that he has been called at this hour for a time such as this.
A Antichrist NWO 666 U.N. special envoy says Israeli Antichrist NWO 666 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress on Tuesday made clear he is thinking in “scriptural terms” and believes himself to be called to protect his people at this critical time.
Pastor Mark Biltz, author of “Blood Moons: Decoding the Imminent Heavenly Signs,” agrees that “mankind could see this next year as one of the most historic when it comes to finding either peace or war in the Middle East.”
Biltz told WND that it is highly significant that Antichrist NWO 666 Netanyahu is speaking before Antichrist NWO 666 Congress “on the very same day that all the Jews were to be destroyed by a Persian madman as recorded in the Book of Esther, the festival of Purim.”
Antichrist NWO 666 Netanyahu clearly recognized the connection Biltz identified, as he referenced Purim in the second paragraph of his address and described the current Iranian government as “another Persian potentate” trying to destroy the Jews.
Biltz said, “Only a few weeks from now, we have the elections in Israel, and the nation will have to elect the one Antichrist NW 666 Israeli Jew who will have to resolve the Antichrist Iranian nuclear problem.
“And it’s at this time biblical signs in the heavens and signs on earth abound. All of this comes in the middle of the Blood Moon tetrad falling on Passover (in April) and the Feast of Tabernacles (in September).”
He said: “We also have a total solar eclipse that will plunge Northern Europe into darkness on March 20. In Jewish tradition a total solar eclipse means judgment coming upon the nations. What’s more, it happens on the first of Nisan in the biblical calendar, the very day of the grand opening ceremony of Moses tabernacle and fire from heaven lighting the altar and the beginning of the Jewish New Year.
“Everything is coming to a head into the perfect storm.”
While Antichrist NWO 666 Netanyahu and >>>REAL SEALED Christians<<< are looking to Scripture for guidance, the Antichrist Islamic Republic of Antichrist Iran is drawing on a different Antichrist source of inspiration, but in truth there is no difference between Antichrist Iran and Antichrist Jewish State. Both are currently Antichrist and lost. The only difference is the Antichrist in Israel has the advantage of being in the land of the Antichrist in the end, ISRAEL. Somehow even those claiming to be of the elect Saints of Christ miss this key point of order.
Jordan’s Antichrist King Abdullah II is warning that the international battle against Daesh – the terror organization known as the Antichrist Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Antichrist ISIS or Antichrist ISIL – has launched World War III, although the rest of the U.S.-led coalition fighting the radical Antichrist Islamic terror group may not yet realize it.
In fact, the Antichrist Hashemite monarch told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Global Public Square earlier this week, “This has to be unified.
“I’ve said this to leaders both in the Antichrist Islamic and Arab world, and to the world in general: This is a third World War by other means.
In a historical ruling, Judge Malka Aviv decided that police must allow Jews to pray at the Temple Mount, the holiest Jewish site in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The court case, Yehuda Glick vs. the Israeli Police, was brought forth after Rabbi Yehuda Glick was banned from visiting the Temple Mount after he was seen giving a Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount on television.
Prior to this decision, Israeli police prohibited Jews from praying on the Temple Mount for security reasons. The police ban even included silent prayer, or mouthing the words to a prayer to oneself. According to Israeli police, non-Muslim prayer at the Temple Mount would incite Islamic violence.
Glick has been actively involved in movements to return Jewish prayer to the Temple Mount and he is no stranger to the violence regarding the controversial subject. At an event about the future of the Temple Mount, Glick was the target of a failed assassination attempt by an Islamic militant. Despite the threat to his life, Glick continued to campaign for the ability of Jews to pray freely.
According to Aviv, this decision will “ensure that Jews are able to pray on the Temple Mount, and not to act sweepingly to prevent Jews from praying on the Temple Mount.” From now on, Israeli police can no longer implement a blanket ban on Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount to try to keep Jewish visitors safe.
A website used by militants ran a photo montage showing the movement’s black flag flying from the obelisk at the centre of St Peter’s Square..
In The Plot Against The Pope; Coup dé’tat in the Conclave–1958, Gary Giuffré discusses how French Masonic influences who had infiltrated the Catholic clergy in the 1800s were working overtime to suppress and discredit the Secret of La Salette, even though its message had been officially favored by two popes. This was because at that time, prophetic references to Rome “becoming the seat of Antichrist” was forming a common eschatology among Catholic scholars like Cardinal Henry Manning (discussed elsewhere in this book), Bishop Salvator Grafen Zola, and Frederick William Helle, who saw in these predictions the work of Masonically infested clergy who plotted the overthrow of the papacy and the use of the Church as a political vehicle for an occult World Order. “These kinds of details, found in the genuine, modern-day, Marian prophecies, would always generate the greatest opposition from the Church’s enemies who had infiltrated her structures,” wrote Giuffré. “For they threatened to expose the satanic plot and long-time goal of the Masonic Lodge’s agents in the Vatican, to usurp and control the papal chair.”[ii]
And it has to be remembered that the specter of infiltration of the Roman Catholic hierarchy by members of Freemasonry’s luciferian “light bearers” was a fairly well-established agenda historically, one which Pope Pius IX called the “Synagogue of Satan.” Pope Leo XIII went so far as to issue a damning encyclical (Humanum Genus) on April 20, 1884 against the efforts to invade and corrupt Roman Catholicism by Freemasons, and yet Leo’s own Secretary of State, Cardinal Mariano Rampolla del Tindaro was later identified as a secret Freemason of the diabolical Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) sect of whom Satanist Aleister Crowley belonged and later became leader.
Other facts the Washington Post did not point out is how according to the prophecy the pope is killed in “a big city half in ruins” while walking to the top of a mountain and kneeling at the foot of a cross. John Paul was riding in the pope’s car through St. Peter’s square, not walking, there was no big mountain or kneeling at a cross, and the city was not half-destroyed. And then there is the contradictory testimony by Cardinal Ratzinger (current Pope Benedict XVI) himself from 1984, which he gave in an interview with the Pauline Sisters’ newsletter (Jesus Magazine) and which was re-published a year later in The Ratzinger Report, titled “Here is Why the Faith is in Crisis.” In this discussion, Ratzinger, who had read the actual Fátima Secret, said the vision involved “dangers threatening the faith and the life of the Christian and therefore [the life] of the world” as well as marking the beginning of the end times.[vii] Additionally, he said, “the things contained in [the] Third Secret correspond to what has been announced in Scripture and has been said again and again in many other Marian apparitions” and that, “If it is not made public, at least for the time being, it is in order to prevent religious prophecy from being mistaken for a quest for the sensational.”[viii]
Concerned Catholics have since contrasted this 1984 testimony with the more recent report by Ratzinger, and have wondered when, where, and under what circumstance his account changed. The 1981 assassination attempt against John Paul II certainly did not fulfill the published parts of the Fátima vision nor correspond to the “last times” as depicted in the Bible. And then there is the affirmation by the Vatican’s most respected scholars who had deduced from years of studying the Fátima prophecy that it concerned an end-time global crisis of faith emanating from the highest echelons at Rome.
As a member of the Vatican Advisory Council and personal secretary to renowned Jesuit Cardinal Augustin Bea, Martin had privileged information pertaining to secretive church and world issues, including the Third Secret of Fátima, which Martin hinted spelled out parts of the plan to formerly install the dreaded False Prophet (Petrus Romanus?) during a “Final Conclave.” Comparing the conflicting statements between Cardinal Ratzinger and Malachi Martin, Father Charles Fiore, a good friend of the murdered priest Alfred J. Kunz (discussed elsewhere in this book) and the late eminent theologian Fr. John Hardon, said in a taped interview: “We have two different Cardinal Ratzingers; we have two different messages. But Malachi Martin was consistent all the way through.”[xii]
Wikipedia’s entry on the Three Secrets of Fátima adds:
On a syndicated radio broadcast, Father Malachi Martin was asked the following question by a caller: “I had a Jesuit priest tell me more of the Third Secret of Fátima years ago, in Perth. He said, among other things, the last pope would be under control of Satan… Any comment on that?” Fr. Martin responded, “Yes, it sounds as if they were reading, or being told, the text of the Third Secret.” In a taped interview with Bernard Janzen, Fr. Martin was asked the following question: “Who are the people who are working so hard to suppress Fátima?” Fr. Martin responded, “A bunch, a whole bunch, of Catholic prelates in Rome, who belong to Satan. They’re servants of Satan. And the servants of Satan outside the Church, in various organizations; they want to destroy the Catholicism of the Church, and keep it as a stabilizing factor in human affairs. It’s an alliance. A dirty alliance, a filthy alliance…” In the same interview, Fr. Martin also said with respect to Lucia [Lucy of Fátima] that, “They’ve (The Vatican) published forged letters in her name; they’ve made her say things she didn’t want to say. They put statements on her lips she never made.”
Enter Antichrist al-Qaeda? It’s hard to imagine, but Director of National Intelligence (DNI) Complete Liar And Dipshit Evil Scum James Clapper is insisting now that moderates are “anyone who is not affiliated with Antichrist ISIS,” and that the only obstacle to arming such groups are the international rules of law..
Death is coming
The year is 2015 and already “It’s like a scene from a horror movie along the West Coast. “We’re seeing all sorts of mysterious goings-on.” “There is no food out there.” Scientists cannot figure out why there is mass starvation of seabirds. Sardines and crayfish have disappeared from the Pacific Ocean; they have just vanished. Marine mammals are starving, struggling to survive on the West Coast. Reports are coming in up and down the coast of a mysterious surge in sick marine mammals infested with parasites, and being extremely emaciated.
At Fukushima where 4 reactors are still out of control and spewing radiation many think this has caused the death in the Pacific of thousands of baby sea lions on the California coast, and 500 navy soldiers are still suffering from radiation poisoning after responding to the earlier Fukushima disaster. We also have reports that West Coast orca whales are experiencing extremely high infant mortality rates as radiation from Fukushima drifts across the ocean. An adult killer whale weighing up to 5,000 kilograms can eat 5% of its body weight, or 250 kilograms of fish, per day. Researchers are also alarmed by ‘puzzling’ changes in orca’s behavior.
As far south as Peru dolphins and sea lions were found dead but no reliable explanations are given. Governments everywhere refuse to make any connection between the deaths and Fukushima. In fact, officially no one has died from radiation from Fukushima. Yet we find scientists saying that right after the accident death rates of infants increased in North America. This is of course adamantly denied by all devotees of nuclear energy.
Jiřina Vitázková and Errico Cazzoli wrote, “The results with respect to health effects show that within 80 years the number of victims of the Fukushima disaster can be expected to be at least in the range of 10,000 to 300,000 people in terms of deaths due to infectious diseases, cardiovascular diseases, genetic diseases and cancers; and about the same number of sicknesses/syndromes needing prolonged hospitalization and health care are expected to occur. This estimate accounts only for the population already living at the time of the accident. A comparable number of excess deaths and sicknesses may be expected in the population that will be born in the period. In addition to these, more than 100,000 excess still-births and a comparable or larger number of excess children born with genetic deformations (e.g. Down syndrome) are expected.”
The toxic substances such as Tritium, Cesium, Plutonium and Strontium are being carried everywhere by winds, rain and ocean currents, entering the food chain through seaweed and seafood, building up high levels of toxicity in the fish – and humans – at the top end of the consumption chain.
It is the contention of this book that all levels of radiation are threatening. When levels increase, even by small amounts, we humans, and all the life around us will suffer from increasing cancer rates thus demanding that doctors learn and teach their patients to take defensive measures. We live in a contaminated world (chemical, heavy metal and radiation) that is getting more toxic day by day. I calculate that 20 tons of mercury are put into the air by all the coal fire plants in the world but government officials obsess only with carbon dioxide, a safe necessary gas that is not bringing warming to our world.
Doctors, who themselves expose their patients to radiation tests and treatments have to calculate the rising risks of combined radiation exposure. Eco Watch lists fifty reasons that we should not trust our governments nor the press, and why we should fear the worst from Fukushima.
Projecting a death toll of more than a million from the radioactivity released from Fukushima is Dr. Chris Busby, scientific secretary of the European Committee on Radiation Risk who has been a professor at a number of universities. “Fukushima is still boiling radionuclides all over Japan”, he said. “Chernobyl went up in one go. So Fukushima is worse.”
Dr. Helen Caldicott, a founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility, told a symposium on ‘The Medical Implications of Fukushima’ said, “The accident is enormous in its medical implications. It will induce an epidemic of cancer as people inhale the radioactive elements, eat radioactive vegetables, rice and meat, and drink radioactive milk and teas. As radiation from ocean contamination bio-accumulates up the food chain … radioactive fish will be caught thousands of miles from Japanese shores. As they are consumed, they will continue the cycle of contamination, proving that no matter where you are, all major nuclear accidents become local. The Fukushima disaster is not over and will never end. The radioactive fallout which remains toxic for hundreds to thousands of years covers large swaths of Japan will never be ‘cleaned up’ and will contaminate food, humans and animals virtually forever.”
Fukushima is Japan’s and the world’s radiation nightmare that will not go away in our lifetimes nor our children’s or grandchildren’s. The Fukushima nuclear power plant is hemorrhaging radioactive toxic waste into the ocean and though we are told not to panic, nor even to be casually concerned, the situation is dangerous and critical to future life on earth.
Ever since March 11, 2011, the damaged plant has been leaking tremendous amounts of radiation. Now Tepco, the operator of the damaged facility, says they have recorded spikes between 50-70 times above average readings in the gutters that pour water into a nearby bay.
The Nuclear Regulation Authority said February 22, 2015, that an alarm went off at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant signaling high radioactivity levels in drainage ditches. According to the NRA and plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co., the first alarm sounded at around 10 a.m., and another alarm 10 minutes later indicated much higher levels.
The levels of beta ray-emitting substances, such as strontium-90, measured 5,050 to 7,230 becquerels per liter of water between 10:20 a.m. and 10:50 a.m. Tepco requires radioactivity levels of groundwater at the plant discharged into the sea to remain below 5 becquerels. However, it was revealed that Tepco knew about the problem all the way back in May of last year and did not report it.
An official at the plant apologized, saying that, “the trust of the people in Fukushima is the most important thing,” and that “we’ve been working with that in mind, but unfortunately, we have damaged that trust this time,” according to Digital Journal. The situation at Fukushima is obviously much worse than authorities are leading us to believe. Newsweek reported on the continuing disaster saying, “The fallout from the Fukushima disaster is far from over. A staggering number of accidents has plagued the plant.”
Strontium mimics calcium making it extremely dangerous to all life forms once it is absorbed. Local, national and international fury once again rises against TEPCO as this latest indication that the crisis at the plant is far from under control. Japan’s top government spokesperson reiterated the government’s long-standing mantra, “The situation is completely under control. Any negative impact of radioactive water on the environment is completely blocked.” TEPCO was aware since April of last year and did nothing to prevent contaminated water from leaking directly out to sea.
Scientists are able to actually measure what they say are very low levels of radiation in the ocean that are now reaching the west coast of North America. Their instruments read the radiation and so can the cells in a person’s body. We are toldnot to worry and certainly not to panic. In fact, nuclear power plants are still promoted as safe even though they offer potential hell to life. Prince William was recently near Fukushima juggling balls for the children, eating locally produced foods and planting trees, promoting the safety of the area and that is understandable considering how deeply the royal family is into the nuclear industry.
Ken Buesseler, a senior scientist at The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution said, “I certainly wouldn’t discourage people from swimming or eating fish from the Pacific because of levels that low. It sounds scary because it’s radioactivity, it’s Fukushima and it’s detectable.” Only problem is if there is any strontium in the fish one could get leukemia!
A radiation plume from the March, 2011 nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan took about 2.1 years to travel via ocean currents and ultimately cross the waters of the Pacific Ocean to reach the shores of North America. That is according to to a study at the end of 2014 (December 29) by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
For the first time since the catastrophic 2011 earthquake, Japan has been rocked with a series of stronger tremors, with two 6.0+ stronger quakes recorded in February 2015. It is unclear if the new leaks are directly related to the recent surge in tectonic activity. RT News said that contamination levels fell quickly, but still measured 10 to 20 times more than prior to the leak.
Throughout history governments have often overestimated how much their citizens are willing to accept.
Japan has a beautiful stoic culture that has been able to endure tremendous suffering. That said, everyone has a breaking point.
And that’s when you see that there’s a big difference between love of country and love of government.
Bottom line – it’s already starting to unravel.
Every time I’m in Singapore now, as I was just last week, my banking contacts report exponential growth in Japanese customers. Businesses, entrepreneurs, and investors are all moving money out of Japan and into Singapore.
Even Japanese banks are aggressively expanding, following the money out of their own country.
This is precisely when capital controls end up being imposed—when a trickle of capital fleeing turns into a flood.
We’re seeing the same things right now in many places around the world, with most of the attention now focused on Greece and other parts of southern Europe.
However, as Japan has the third largest economy in the world and is the most woefully indebted, it’s really the one to watch.
When the powder keg goes off that sets the global financial system ablaze, it will most likely be in Japan where the match is lit.
The US military is considering sending its THAAD missile defense system to the Middle East, a senior US Army general said on Wednesday, citing what he called an urgent need to respond to foes with missile systems and the will to use them.
General Vincent Brooks, head of US Army Pacific Command, said no decisions had been made about deploying a US-owned Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) battery in the Middle East or South Korea, another region where he saw an urgent need given the threat posed by North Korea.
Sources familiar with the THAAD system said they did not believe a deployment to the Middle East was imminent.
Riki Ellison, founder of the nonprofit Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance, said putting a THAAD system in the Middle East would help cover potential gaps in the existing coverage of the area such as provided by the Aegis system on US destroyers and Patriot missile batteries.
Ultimately, he said, a decision to station a THAAD system in the Middle East would be a “political chess move” in the current US talks with Iran over ending its nuclear weapons program.
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
U.S. Ambassador Mark Lippert was in stable condition after a man screaming demands for a unified North and South Korea slashed him on the face and wrist with a 25-cm-long fruit knife on Thursday, South Korean police and U.S. officials said.
Citing South Korean intelligence sources, Yonhap said Kim is a pro-North Korea activist who visited the North six times between 2006 and 2007 and also tried to erect a memorial altar in late 2011 for the late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il in the heart of Seoul.
A 30-kilowatt fiber laser weapon system from Lockheed Martin successfully disabled a vehicle engine from a distance of more than one mile.
In the test — said to represent the highest power ever documented by a laser weapon of its type — the beam from the Advanced Test High Energy Asset, or ATHENA, quickly burned through the engine manifold of a truck mounted and running on a test platform, Lockheed Martin said.
