War Against The The Truth

First of all, Carl von Clausewitz, who wrote the classic book ‘On War,’ stated that ‘When goods don’t cross borders, armies do.’ Well, when the truth can’t be disseminated on the internet, you’ve got war. And the people that make war on your thoughts will ultimately make war on you personally.

What is happening right now, Eric, is internet censorship. The internet is going to be censored by very evil people. We are already seeing this with sites such as King World News repeatedly being taken offline in the last few weeks. With internet censorship comes the death of freedom and with the death of freedom comes the killing fields. In other words, the thought controllers will become the executioners of tomorrow.”

The Truth About What The Elites Are Up To

Antichrist Iran’s Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, sat down with NBC News this week for an exclusive interview. NBC’s headline and story are: “Antichrist Iran Foreign Minister: We Believe We Are ‘Very Close’ to Nuke Deal.” But the Times of Israel noted a buried lede–“Zarif: The Antichrist NWO 666 Netanyahu regime ‘should be annihilated’.” While the American editors focused on boosting prospects for Antichrist NWO 666 President Barack Obozo The 911 Clown ’s signature diplomatic initiative, their Israeli counterparts focused on the threat that remains.

The full exchange between reporter Ann Curry–who deserves full marks for bringing up the issue, and refusing to let Antichrist Zarif dodge the question–is posted in the transcript at NBC News’ website, though the story the network focused elsewhere. Antichrist Zarif denies that Iran wants to kill Jews–after all, he says, there are Antichrist Jews in Antichrist Iran–but Curry elicits an admission that Antichrist Antichrist Iran does want to annihilate Israel, the Antichrist state of the Antichrist Jewish people and the site of the world’s largest concentration of Antichrist Jews.

ANTICHRIST IRAN RENEWS VOW TO ‘ANNIHILATE’ ISRAEL, NBC BURIES LEDE 

ANN CURRY: So how does Iran want to annihilate the Antichrist regime of Israel, since you’re making the difference?

Antichrist JAVAD ZARIF: We don’t want to annihilate. We don’t want to–

ANN CURRY: Well, the Antichrist Supreme Leader–

Antichrist JAVAD ZARIF: –annihilate anybody.

ANN CURRY: –tweeted that–

Antichrist JAVAD ZARIF: We have– the– well, what he says–

ANN CURRY: –it should be annihilated.

Antichrist JAVAD ZARIF: It– it should be annihilated. That this regime is a threat, is a threat…

Antichrist Zarif has sought to turn the tables on Israel in recent days, calling Israeli Antichrist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a threat to peace. Kudos to Curry for refusing to let him get away with it. Why her editors chose to bury the lede demands explanation.

NeW WoRLD ORDeR 

Coinciding with the snap visit of Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo The 911 Clown US Secretary of State John Skull & Bones Kerry to Antichrist Saudi Arabia this week, the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Pride US military is considering deploying one of its THAAD defense systems in the region.

Both moves are intended to lessen concerns expressed in the Antichrist Gulf countries about Antichrist Iran’s nuclear program and its increasing interventions in conflicts across the Antichrist Middle East. Antichrist Tehran’s direct and indirect involvement by its Antichrist Shi’ite proxies is evident in Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Syria.

THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) is an American anti-ballistic missile system. It is designed to intercept and “kill” medium- and long-range incoming ballistic missiles, including those which are carrying nuclear warheads.

In a sense, the idea to deploy THAAD in order to defend the Antichrist Gulf emirates and Antichrist Saudi Arabia from Antichrist Iran practically means to offer them a “nuclear umbrella.”

Analysis: Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 US, Antichrist Sunni states talk about regional ‘nuclear umbrella’

Antichrist NWO 666 911 Netanyahu’s Antichrist Iran speech gains tacit support in Antichrist  Saudi Arabia 

DUBAI, Antichrist United Arab Emirates (AP) — Israeli Antichrist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s fiery speech this week before the Antichrist NWO 666 U.S. Congress, in which he argued against an emerging nuclear deal with Iran, has received tacit support from an unlikely quarter — Antichrist Saudi Arabia.

The oil-rich Antichrist Sunni kingdom views Antichrist Shiite Iran as a regional rival that is perhaps even more menacing than Israel.

That was clear in a string of columns this week published in Antichrist Saudi state-linked media, which is widely seen as reflecting official views and mainstream thought in the kingdom, and which voiced skepticism of Antichrist NWO 666 President Barack Obozo’s 911 efforts to broker a landmark nuclear agreement with Antichrist Tehran.

“Who could believe that Antichrist Netanyahu today has taken a better stand than Obozo with regard to the Antichrist Iranian nuclear file?” columnist Ahmed al-Faraj wrote, saying he was quoting a recent remark by Antichrist NWO 666 Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL). The opinion piece in the Antichrist Saudi-owned al-Jazira newspaper on Monday, a day before the speech, reflects sentiment shared among some in the Gulf.

Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:

3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

Apple may consume up to 746 metric tonnes of gold per year in the production of its new luxury Apple watch, due for release in April. This equates to roughly one third of gold’s total annual global mine supply.

Apple Major New Gold Buyer – Propel Gold Higher? Apple Expects To Sell One Million Gold Watches Per Month – Each Watch To Use Up To Two Ounces Of Gold

Gold trading this morning had some oddities. This was more than the normal shenanigans as just before the official release time of 0830ET, gold started to drop then accelerated past the official release time. But… the actual headlines hitting news wires were delayed because of the lack of lock-up and as is clear below, the ‘real’ selling did not start until those headlines hit. So was this auto-algo selling at 0830 no matter what to ensure markets got the message… or did someone get the unlock-up’d headlines ‘earlier’ than everyone else?

More ‘odd’ than normal…

Of course – coming just day after the RBA fiasco, clearly anything goes…

and it wasn’t just gold…

Who Knew What When In Gold & Stocks This Morning? 

Today’s Gold Smash Is Western Government Intervention

Andrew Maguire: “Eric, here we are again after another heavily gamed Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report week that evidences just how ‘managed’ the paper markets are. Given the strong Indian and Chinese demand above $1,200 and the currency crosses related to gold that were net-positive all week, there was no reason to paint gold down ahead of today’s NFP. Given that the physical market is strong, the Comex-centric selling has all the hallmarks of ‘official’ selling.

Massive Physical Demand

What I am saying is that there was massive physical buying above $1,200. So there was no reason for today’s takedown other than to flush the paper markets of some weak-handed longs, and for the commercials to cover shorts and add to their long positions.

Andrew Maguire – Who Smashed Gold Today And Why As HSBC Shocks Clients By Closing All London Gold Vaults!

Bank Of England And Fed Fingerprints

Real Comex open interest has declined by some 250,000 contracts in the last 4 years, leaving what remains in the hands of a few directional high-frequency trading algorithms controlled by a few CME insiders, who also happen to be the same 6 market-making bullion banks that have gold accounts with the Bank of England. Considering the FED had the NFP data days ahead of the release, it is highly unlikely these agent banks were not privy to the data as well.

What this synthetic gaming has done is drive out almost all ‘real’ open interest into an increasingly liquid physical market outside the tendrils of a handful of collusive banks. This migration has now reached an inflection point and reverse leverage is about to run these banks over.

Phsysical Demand Exceeds Mine Supply – Takedown Is Naked Short Selling

The downside manipulations have become so embarrassingly obvious to anyone connected to the strong physical markets. There is no way of hiding that these sales are conducted in the face of a market where physical demand continues to exceed mine supply, meaning these sales can only be effected by way of high leveraged naked short selling.

Bullion Banks’ 100/1 Leveraged Paper Positions

These too-big-to-fail banks are once again playing a high-risk game with taxpayer money. They are so obviously mismatched to their underlying physical holdings that large institutional entities are unwinding their fractional gold and silver risks. The resulting deleveraging exposes the bullion banks’ rehypothecated positions. As this accelerates it is forcing a 100/1 unwind of paper positions.

Eric, last week we talked about a membership-based physical exchange that has stealthily been built over the last 3.5 years and is now bullet-proof from LBMA interference. In our interview last week we talked about how this physical trading platform provides a real alternative to the closed-loop LBMA system.

It all boils down to the fact that providing direct access to the wholesale market, without going through a bullion bank, empowers the end user. Up until now, the end user hasn’t been able to directly access the wholesale market.

LBMA Killer

The next exciting step is the announcement of a full-fledged institutional global exchange to compete with the existing archaic LBMA/London Precious Metals Clearing Limited unallocated market. All the institutional trading, clearing, settlement and technological facilities to do so have effectively now been built. There has been a slight delay with the launch but I will have a hard date for you as well as the name of the exchange by next week.

Within a few weeks this will change the way gold is traded as we witness large migrations of unallocated LBMA position holders unwind from high counterparty risk unallocated positions and then allocate into secure vaulted kilobar accounts outside of the LBMA bullion banking system.

In other words, real allocated bullion will have to take the place of fractional reserve holdings. This leverage unwind will wrench the reins out of the bullion banks’ hands and force a cash settlement. We also have a treat for the bullion banks. As this deleveraging forces the buying of bullion, the soon to be announced exchange will introduce a new ‘pairs trade,’ short paper gold, long physical gold XAU/AAU. This will represent a low-risk trade and a nail in the coffin for the LBMA.

Eric just think, only one more NFP gaming to endure before things start to change! I will have more to share with you next week about this exciting game-changing news.

HSBC Just Shocked Clients By Announcing Closure Of All London Gold Vaults!

The other big news this week was HSBC giving only 2 months’ notice to clients that they are closing down all 7 of their London gold vaults! This is an unprecedented move. Why do you think this is? It is because transparency is coming. There is no profit in plain, vanilla bullion banking any longer.

I also suspect given the lack of warning and lack of any press release that the majority of these clients will be unable to make other vaulting arrangements in time. HSBC will no doubt make it easy for these clients to sell the bullion back to HSBC, who will then use this bullion inflow to repay some underwater positions. So something is brewing behind the scenes, Eric, and this is one more sign major changes are coming.”

We are witnessing a profound secular sea-change: the failure of expanding debt and leverage to lift the real economy of wages and household income.

The One Chart You Need To Predict The Future 

When push comes to shove, you only need one chart to predict the future: debt and wages ( credit and compensation). This chart displays debt and wages as a ratio: debt/wages. What it reveals is the endgame of financialization: creating more debt no longer pushes wages higher.

After the tech bubble burst, the Federal Reserve lowered interest rates and pushed financialization to the max. The debt/wage ratio line soared on the rocket fuel of debt, leverage and speculation.

But something changed around 2009. Expanding debt and leverage no longer boosted wages. For the first time in 30 years, juicing debt and leverage did not push wages higher–rather, wages declined or stagnated, despite trillions of dollars of Fed stimulus, near-zero interest rates and all the other tricks of financialization.

The returns on additional debt and leverage have diminished to near-zero. This is the endgame of financialization: expanding debt and leverage no longer move the needle on wages and household income. Rather, adding more debt is weighing on wages.

After 30 years of success, the endgame is finally here. We are witnessing a profound secular sea-change: the failure of expanding debt and leverage to lift the real economy of wages and household income.

Insiders Now Dumping Massive Amounts Of Stock!

March 6 (King World News) – Corporate insiders have been selling heavily lately, especially in technology stocks. At the same time, those technology companies have been buying back a record amount of stock. So the insiders themselves are doing something opposite of what they are instructing their companies to do

Last week, we noted a pickup in corporate insider selling, especially in technology shares, according to the excellent institutional research firm InsiderScore.com

The selling didn’t get any better this week, and InsiderScore’s proprietary measure for technology remains depressed, among its worst levels in at least 8 years.

Are The Bond Vigilantes Back? Treasury Yields All Higher Year-To-Date For The First Time 

5Y Treasury yields have swung 16bps from the immediate post-payrolls reaction trough. Across the entire curve yields are exploding higher and for the first time in 2015, all yields are now higher since the start of the year… 30Y yields are still 24bps lower post-QE3 but 2Y yields are 24bps higher.

All yields now higher year-to-date…

You know that we talk a lot about the insane level of government interference in our lives. About what we can and cannot put in our bodies. The amount of interest we’re entitled to receive on our savings. Etc.

But I’m noticing now even more ridiculous trends of governments wanting to get involved in people’s sex lives.

Last year the Danish government promoted an initiative called “Do it for Denmark”, encouraging Danes to travel abroad and have sex while on holidays. They even have a pretty racy Youtube video featuring a scantily clad gorgeous blonde waiting to do her duty for her country and procreate.

The Weirdest Thing You’ll See Today 

In Denmark they seem to think that people aren’t going on vacation enough. In Japan they think it’s a problem of sexual desire. But in actuality it has everything to do with cost of living.

Month to month, year to year, it’s hard to notice the subtle changes in costs of living and standards of living, but after a long period of time it’s easy to look back and remember how things used to be.

You used to be able to support a family on a single income. You used to be able to afford medical care and higher education.

It’s often said that the greatest expense that someone will have in their life is his or her home. That’s total nonsense.

Now, I’m not saying it’s not worth it, but the biggest expense most people will have is family, and particularly children.

And after years and years of suffering through pitiful, destructive policies that have chronically made people less prosperous, it’s no surprise that they’re coming to the conclusion—you know, we can’t really afford to have a child right now.

There are consequences to conjuring money out of thin air. There are consequences to destructive policies.

So destructive in fact that central bankers and politicians even have the power to make a population disappear.

How ironic that they try to fix their own problem by trying to introduce themselves into our bedrooms.

Revelation 17 

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

How Thatcher’s Government Covered Up a VIP Pedophile Ring
Now that most of the major figures are dead, the truth is emerging about the systematic sexual abuse of children by members of the British government.

A newspaper editor was handed startling evidence that Britain’s top law enforcement official knew there was a VIP pedophile network in Westminster, at the heart of the British government. What happened next in the summer of 1984 helps to explain how shocking allegations of rape and murder against some of the country’s most powerful men went unchecked for decades.

Less than 24 hours after starting to inquire about the dossier presented to him by a senior Labour Party politician, the editor was confronted in his office by a furious member of parliament who threatened him and demanded the documents. “He was frothing at the mouth and really shouting and spitting in my face,” Don Hale told The Daily Beast. “He was straight at me like a raging lion; he was ready to knock me through the wall.”

Despite the MP’s explosive intervention, Hale refused to hand over the papers which appeared to show that Leon Brittan, Margaret Thatcher’s Home Secretary, was fully aware of a pedophile network that included top politicians.

The editor’s resistance was futile; the following morning, police officers from the counter-terror and intelligence unit known as Special Branch burst into the newspaper office, seized the material and threatened to have Hale arrested if he ever reported what had been found.

More than 30 years later, an inquiry into allegations of child sex abuse rings, murder, and cover-ups has been launched by the British government after Scotland Yard detectives said they believed statements by victims who claimed they were systematically abused as young boys at sex abuse parties attended by judges, politicians, intelligence officers, and staff at the royal palaces.

Some Folks Were Selling: “Great” Job Number Sends Markets Into Turmoil

One last thing – for everyone confused at how everything can be sold? Where did all the money go? Where did it rotate to? The answer is very simple – it’s not real money – its leveraged carry trades and the expectatons for a rate hike dramatically raise the risk of those positions and this that leverage is reduced and credit extinguished… it does not “go” anywhere….

Joseph Moshe (MOSSAD Microbiologist): “Swine flu vaccine is bioweapon” 

Today, the MSM are not talking about this case any more. Yesterday, they wanted us to believe that Joseph Moshe was a nutcase and a terrorist, arrested for threatening to bomb the White House. Interesting detail about his arrest (the “Westwood standoff”) was that he seemed to be immune to the 5 cans of tear gas and 5 gallons of law-enforcement grade pepper spray they pumped into his face. He very calmly remained in his car, as the video footage of his arrest shows.

Professor Moshe had called into a live radio show by Dr. A. True Ott, (explanation of Joseph Moshe’s call at 06:00) broadcast on Republic Broadcasting claiming to be a microbiologist who wanted to supply evidence to a States Attorney regarding tainted H1N1 Swine flu vaccines being produced by Baxter BioPharma Solutions. He said that Baxter’s Ukrainian lab was in fact producing a bioweapon disguised as a vaccine. He claimed that the vaccine contained an adjuvant (additive) designed to weaken the immune system, and replicated RNA from the virus responsible for the 1918 pandemic Spanish flu, causing global sickness and mass death.

Baxter International Inc. had mixed live, genetically engineered avian flue viruses in vaccine material shipped to 18 countries. Only by sheer luck, a Czech laboratory decided to test the vaccine on a dozen ferrets, which all died in days. The World Health Organization was notified and catastrophe was averted. This was clearly a deliberate act on Baxter’s part, because they adhere to BS3, bio-safety level three. Baxter admitted a “mistake”. Such monumental screwups are totally impossible at that level. Many safety systems would have needed to be sabotaged, many key personell would have needed to be bribed. It simply can’t be done without direction from the inside. They did not send out the wrong vial – they produced dozens of gallons of biological-weapon agent (genetically engineered live H5N1 / Bird flu virus), then sent it out as a “vaccine”.

Baxter knew full well that their vaccine was lethal, because the year before they had tested it on a few hundred homeless Polish people – dozens died as a result.

Where’s the meat? Well – Baxter is now being sued for the deliberate, repeated contamination of vaccines with biological weapons designed – by them – to mass-murder people. Here is the complaint (PDF). By some kook nutcase? Not likely – Jane Burgermeister is an experienced, respected journalist. She is not the only one suing Baxter for planning and executing a plan for global genocide: Others are filing complaints as well.

Qui bono? We think it may be profit-motivated or even sheer incompetence, but for the conspiracy-minded: The latter complaint alludes to intentional “culling of the herd”. Have you heard of the Georgia Guidestones? An enormous monument loaded with Masonic symbolism costing millions of dollars, it has been erected by unknown, powerful elites (multimillionaires with the clout to erect monuments wherever they please, obviously) around 30 years ago. It gives an “alternative ten commandments”, of which the first is the extermination of six and a half billion people from the face of the Earth. Half a billion will remain. This is the number of people the planet can sustain indefinitely, so that the descendents of the Rothschilds and Rockefellers can live in peace and affluence indefinitely. Slaves are needed to produce that luxury, but 500 million will do just fine. But how does one go about killing off most of the world?

“Vaccinating” the planet with a bioweapon with near-100% mortality would do the trick. Baxter would provide both the bioweapon as well as the vaccine against it to “civilized” Western peoples. Result: We can plunder Africa, we have no more competition from SE Asia, the oil is for our taking and only Western and perhaps Chinese sheeple remain.

Rockefeller said this in 1994 at a U.N. dinner: “We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis, and the nations will accept the New World Order.” PNAC said something similar right before 9/11.

Vaccine, Not Ebola, Made Doc Sick, Study Finds 

Just 12 hours after he got an experimental Ebola vaccine, and just two days after he stuck himself with a needle while caring for Ebola patients in September, Dr. Lewis Rubinson started getting sick.

By then, Rubinson was aboard a jet, being evacuated from Sierra Leone to the United States. He wasn’t sure if he was infected with Ebola or if the vaccine was causing a reaction. He was en route to strict isolation at the National Institutes of Health outside Washington D.C.

Months later, it’s fairly clear the vaccine caused the reaction. He has no trace of Ebola infection. What’s not entirely clear is whether the vaccine stopped the virus from taking hold, or whether he was never infected in the first place.

Federal lawmakers demand answers from FDA on superbug response 

“The alarming spread of superbug outbreaks across the country demands a forceful, substantive response from the federal government,” said Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.), one of the letter’s co-authors.

FDA officials haven’t responded yet to the letter.

The agency last month said it is “actively engaged with other government agencies … and the manufacturers of duodenoscopes used in the United States to identify the causes and risk factors for transmission of infectious agents and develop solutions to minimize patient exposure.”

One of the primary criticisms of the agency is that it didn’t respond sooner to numerous red flags about the difficulty of cleaning these medical devices of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, such as CRE.

“It appears that the FDA has known for at least two years that the design of duodenoscopes could result in CRE outbreaks,” lawmakers wrote in their letter.

Richard Maybury has been predicting ‘black swan’ events in his newsletter Early Warning Report for the last two decades.

In a recent conversation, he put his finger on something happening around the world. He sees a growing anxiety about global events – “everybody knows there’s something seriously wrong but they don’t know what is really happening,” he said.

A reckoning with policies that have been in place since the 1940’s is taking place, according to Richard. The fallout, he says, has implications for currencies, the military hegemony of the US, and political stability around the world.

US Hegemony Since the 1940’s

“The United Nations, NATO, the Bretton Woods monetary system, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund were all created in the 1940s according to blueprints that were approved in Washington,” Richard explains.

And this ‘world order’ may be coming to an end, he believes: “It’s the collapse of that structure that was built in the 1940s that is behind all of these problems that are popping up in financial markets and economies around the world” (we published a report recently on why many indicators undermine the ‘recovery’ thesis.

“Monetary System, World Order We’ve Had Since 1940s Is Collapsing” Warns Richard Maybury 

If yesterday morning, the key macro data was the current , and projected, weakness in China (whose record jump in FX deposits indicates fears about capital outflows are alive and well, and that the highest currency depreciation risk in 2015 is for none other than the Chinese currency), then overnight we got more economic data out of Europe that, at least for now, suggest that the collapse in the Euro is boosting European factory order, with German Industrial Production not only beating expectations, but the prior month being revised from 0.1% to 1.0% – the fifth consecutive increase in production. Spain promptly met that “beat and raise”, when it also reported a better than expected 0.4% (est -0.3%) with December revised higher to 0.0%. All of which was to be expected – as we noted yesterday, the main reason for transitory European strength in a zero-sum world, is the soaring USD and the collapsing, recession-level US factory orders.

The question stands: how much longer will the Fed allow the ECB to export its recession to the US on the back of the soaring dollar, and how much longer will the market be deluded that “decoupling” is still possible despite a dramatic bout of weakness in recent US data. Look for the answer in today’s BLS report, which – if the Fed is getting secound thoughts about its rate hike strategy in just 3 months – has to print well below 200,000 to send a very important message to the market about just how much weaker the US economy is than generally perceived.

For now, however, the ECB is getting its way, and the question of just how much European QE is priced in, remains open, with peripheral bond yields dropping to new all time lows for yet another day, while the EURUSD has plunged to fresh 11 year lows, sliding below 1.094, and making every US corporation with European operations scream in terror.

Overnight Wrap: Euro Plummets As Q€ “Priced In”, Futures “Coiled” Ahead Of Payrolls

While America ‘believes’ it is highly productive, former Fed Chair Alan Greenspan instantly dispels that myth in another ominous appearance on CNBC this morning, “American productivity has gone nowhere in the last few years,” and that is what is holding back wage growth. Furthermore, reiterating his concerns about the inverse relationship between surging entitlements and weak savings rates, Greenspan noted, “the annual rate of increase in entitlements of 9% per year…and the people that receive it believe they are getting their money back and have a right to it.” There simply is no long-term investment as businesses favor short-term actions as the Maestro explains Fed QE lowering the real rate of interest “has been responsible for the rise in P/E multiples… and when rates normalize, that will reverse,” adding that “we can’t argue that we are extremely overvalued in the marketplace.”

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-03-06/alan-greenspan-warns-stocks-are-without-doubt-extremely-overvalued

Greenspan explains… Productivity… Savings… Entitlements… Euro Failure… QE…Fed bubble-blowing… stock overvaluation and 1929 looms…

As Chinese exports crashed in January (and imports were extremely weak), one could be forgiven for expecting the US trade deficit to be more extreme than the tumble it experienced in December… but no. The US Trade Deficit printed $41.8bn, slightly worse than the $41.1bn expectation but ‘better’ than the adjusted $45.6 billion. Imports dropped 3.9% in January and Exports fell 2.9%. This is the 2nd month in a row of worse than expected deficits (and 4th of last 5). The shift is led by big drops in Food & Beverage (-9.1%) and Auto (-7.0%) exports and an 11.3% plunge in Industrial Supplies imports.

4th of last 5 month bigger than expected trade deficit…

Exports of goods and services decreased $1.5 billion in December to $194.9 billion, reflecting a decrease in exports of goods. Exports of services increased..

Imports of goods and services increased $5.3 billion in December to $241.4 billion, mostly reflecting an increase in imports of goods. Imports of services also increased.

Goods by geographic area (seasonally adjusted, Census basis)

The goods deficit with Canada increased from $1.6 billion in November (revised) to $3.3 billion in December. Exports decreased $0.8 billion to $25.8 billion and imports increased $0.9 billion to $29.0 billion. The goods surplus with South and Central America decreased from $4.3 billion in November to $2.6 billion in December. Exports decreased $0.7 billion to $14.8 billion and imports increased $1.0 billion to $12.2 billion. The goods deficit with Germany decreased from $6.3 billion in November to $5.6 billion in December. Exports increased $0.1 billion to $3.9 billion and imports decreased $0.6 billion to $9.6 billion

And finally, given the epic collapse in Chinese data, it seems odd that The BEA reports, the deficit with China increased $2.7 billion to $83.4 billion in the fourth quarter. Exports increased $3.5 billion to $43.8 billion and imports increased $6.2 billion to $127.2 billion.

US Trade Deficit Worse Than Expected As Auto Exports Tumble 

For those (very few now, with even the Fed admitting the unemployment rate has become a meaningless, anachronistic relic) still wondering why the unemployment rate dropped once again, sliding from 5.7% to 5.5%, the reason is that while the number of unemployed Americans dropped by 274K thousand while those employed rose by 96K, the underlying math is that the civilian labor force dropped from 157,180 to 157,002 (following the major revisions posted last month), while the people not in the labor force rose by 354,000 in February, rising to a record 92,898,000 (people who currently want a job rose to 6,538K) matching the all time high number of Americans not in the labor force.

End result: the labor force participation rate dropped once more, declining to only 62.8%, which as the chart below shows is just off the lowest print recorded since 1978.

Americans Not In The Labor Force Rise To Record 98.9 Million As Participation Rate Declines Again 

The unemployment rate came in lower than expected as well, printing at 5.5%, versus the 5.6% expected and down from 5.7% last month, as a result of the participation rate dropping again from 62.9% to 62.8%.

But the number everyone was looking at this month, the change in average hourly earning, came in at 0.1%, once again missing expectations of 0.2%, and sliding from 0.5%. So much for winter storms boosting wages as Goldman speculated.

As the chart below showing average hourly earnings shows, the January surge in wages was a fluke, and the number rose by a tiny 3 cents in February to $25.78, an increase of just 2.0%, and far below the Fed’s target of 4.0%

February Payrolls Surge To 295K, Smash Expectations Of 235K, Unemployment Rate Drops To 5.5%

Today we ask again: did the BLS once more forget to add the now tens of thousands of jobs lost in the US energy sector? We ask because the divergence is getting, frankly, ridiculous.

One wonders: just what is the BLS waiting for to finally admit the real picture in the energy sector (and frankly, just what is the methodology used by the BLS to calculate “jobs” if it is failing so miserably to account for what is clearly happening) and will it serve the steaming surprise pile just after the Fed decides to hike rates some time in the coming months?

Did The BLS Again Forget To Count The Tens Of Thousands Of Energy Job Losses? 

Ironically moments ago US labor secretary Thomas Perez said that the “quality of jobs is going up.”

No it isn’t, as anyone who spends even two minutes with the BLS report can find out.

Why No Wage Increases: More Than Half Of Jobs Added In February Were Lowest-Quality, Lowest-Paying

It has become a running joke: month after month after month, the punditry says wages hikes are coming… they are coming any second, just be patient. And month after month the punditry refuses to accept the simple reason why not even the BLS’ goalseeked data does not permit this long awaited wage surge to take place – simply said, the quality of jobs (or rather “jobs” as these are all merely 1s and 0s that only exist in some BLS spreadsheet) added every month is absolutely atrocious, so bad that not even the BLS’ actuarial tables allow its goalseek program to attribute higher wages to the “jobs” it creates out of thin statistical air.

Don’t have two minutes? Here is the full breakdown. As the chart below shows, the three biggest single-category jobs added in February (because Professional services includes numerous occupations), were also the three lowest quality, lowest paying ones:

Leisure and Hospitality, added 66K jobs
Education and Health added 54K
Retail trade added 32K
Together these three job categories accounted for 152K jobs, or more than half the total February job gains. They also represent the lowest paid jobs in the US.

And that’s why there is no wage increase.

We’ve seen this movie before, and if I recall correctly, it didn’t end terribly well.

In fact, we’re still living through the seemingly-endless backlog of delinquent loans and distressed properties that the massive housing boom and bust cycle left us with back in 2008. A cycle that was fueled by free-flowing capital, and built bad loan by bad loan by bad loan.

Imagine my surprise to read today about a new loan product that requires 0% down; has no private mortgage insurance requirement; provides cash from the lender for up to $4,500 of the closing costs, and allows gifts or seller funding for the rest of the closing costs; is aimed at borrowers making less than 80% of the median income in the market where they’re buying a home; and available only for properties located in a low-to-moderate income census track.

0% Down, 100% Chance of Trouble

So, zero down payment loans to low-income borrowers with basically no cash reserves, on properties least likely to increase appreciably in value, and probably most likely in need of repairs.

What could possibly go wrong with this set-up?

This is one sequel I’d really rather not see.

Goldman Payroll Post-Mortem: Fed Will Modify Forward Guidance, Possible June Rate Hike 

Via Goldman Sachs,

Payroll employment continued to grow at a strong pace, exceeding consensus expectations. The unemployment rate fell due to lower participation. With the final employment report in hand before the upcoming FOMC meeting, we think the Committee will modify its forward guidance on March 18. Our forecast remains for the first hike in the fed funds rate to occur in September.

The science fraud game is over for the biotech mafia. After years of running its corporate con that pushed dangerous poisons into the food supply and the fragile environment, the biotech industry’s lies are now exposed and meticulously deconstructed in an exhaustively researched new book launching >>>>>>March 20<<<<<<

What does Jane Goodall have to say about the total science fraud of GMOs and the corrupt biotech industry?

In her own words, Altered Genes, Twisted Truth is “without doubt one of the most important books of the last 50 years.”

She goes on to reveal the stunning truth about the outright corruption, fraud and disinformation that now characterizes the biotech industry and the collusion of the FDA:

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth is the most chilling thing I’ve ever read. It’s about the huge conspiracy by the big companies who do genetic modification to keep the public from knowing the truth, to subvert the course of justice.

[GMOs are a] shocking corruption of the life forms of the planet.

…the huge conspiracy by the big companies who do genetic modification to keep the public from knowing the truth, to subvert the course of justice.

…the general public and government decision makers have been hoodwinked by the clever and methodical twisting of the facts and the propagation of many myths.

…a number of respected scientific institutions, as well as many eminent scientists, were complicit in this relentless spreading of disinformation.

Steven Druker is a hero. He deserves at least a Nobel Prize.

GAME OVER: GMO science fraud shattered by stunning investigative book worthy of Nobel Prize – Altered Genes, Twisted Truth

Has the DNA of the global economy been gradually altered by endless injections of quantitative easing, morphing it into a freakish mutant?

Unraveling The Mystery Of Oil And The Swiss Franc

Now let’s talk about the Swiss franc, which jumped 16 percent in one day when the Swiss National Bank decided it couldn’t afford to go on losing billions of francs month after month, desperately trying to keep its currency down in relation to the euro and dollar. Instead, it opted to pass the burden of losses on to investors looking for a safe harbor in the Swiss franc, by imposing negative interest rates on deposits.

Let’s expand on this fact for a second: Today, if you buy bonds issued by the Swiss government, you’ll pay interest for the privilege of holding your hard-earned savings in the Swiss currency. Normally, governments pay you — the investor — for your consideration in investing in their bonds. But for the Swiss these are not normal times.

I cannot recall when the currency of a developed country — we’re not talking about a banana republic here; we’re talking about Switzerland — moved 16 percent in one day. (Unlike stocks, a 1 or 2 percent intraday move in a currency is considered to be a big shift.) By the way, negative interest rates are not part of the normal economics curriculum either.

Here is the lesson from this:

We don’t know what the ultimate consequences of near-zero interest rates will be, but we are pretty sure their impact will be amplified by increased leverage in the system and the dangerous mismatch between risky assets and their holders. This will lead to increased volatility in places we don’t expect.

Here’s another analogy: The arguments in favor of GMO crops are that they increase yields, decrease the need for pesticides and mitigate soil erosion. The argument against them is simple but more ambiguous: We don’t know the long-term consequences of growing and eating GMOs. It’s the same thing with QE, which is even less organic to the economy than GMOs are to the soil and the human body. We know the positives, but it is the hidden consequences, the things we don’t know, that scare me.

We are dialing down on risk even further in our stock selection; and despite the euphoria in the stock market, we are raising the bar for stocks in our portfolio — we are going medieval on quality and the margin of safety. This will cause our cash balances to increase. Cash has not been the investor’s friend — it is never a friend in a rising market. But oil prices and the Swiss franc have reminded us again that risk can spread quickly, and when you need cash it may already be too late to raise it. We are giving up some returns today for the ability to buy attractive stocks at lower prices in the near future.

The Great Whore and the Beast
17 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great whore who is seated on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and with the wine of whose fornication the inhabitants of the earth have become drunk.” 3 So he carried me away in the spirit[a] into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her fornication; 5 and on her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of whores and of earth’s abominations.” 6 And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints and the blood of the witnesses to Jesus.

When I saw her, I was greatly amazed. 7 But the angel said to me, “Why are you so amazed? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns that carries her. 8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to ascend from the bottomless pit and go to destruction. And the inhabitants of the earth, whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will be amazed when they see the beast, because it was and is not and is to come.

9 “This calls for a mind that has wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman is seated; also, they are seven kings, 10 of whom five have fallen, one is living, and the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain only a little while. 11 As for the beast that was and is not, it is an eighth but it belongs to the seven, and it goes to destruction. 12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast. 13 These are united in yielding their power and authority to the beast; 14 they will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for he is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”

15 And he said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the whore is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages. 16 And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the whore; they will make her desolate and naked; they will devour her flesh and burn her up with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by agreeing to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. 18 The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.”

Revelation 17 

And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem [C the believers’ eternal dwelling place; 3:12], coming down out of heaven from God. It was prepared like a bride ·dressed [adorned] for her husband [19:7, 9].

3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “[L Look; T Behold] Now God’s ·presence [dwelling; tabernacle] is with people, and he will ·live [dwell; tabernacle; John 1:14] with them, and they will be his people [Ex. 29:45; Jer. 31:33; Ezek. 37:27]. God himself will be with them and will be their God.[a] 4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes [7:17; Is. 25:8], and there will be no more death [Is. 25:8; 1 Cor. 15:54], ·sadness [mourning], crying, or pain, because ·all the old ways [the old order; L the first things] are gone.”

5 The One who was sitting on the throne [C Jesus] said, “Look! I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this, because these words are ·true and can be trusted [L faithful/reliable and true].”

6 The One on the throne said to me, “It is ·finished [done; accomplished]. I am the Alpha and the Omega [C the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet; 1:8], the Beginning and the End. I will give ·free water [L freely] from the spring of the water of life to anyone who is thirsty [Is. 55:1; John 7:37]. 7 Those who ·win the victory [conquer] will ·receive [inherit] ·this [L these things; C God’s promise], and I will be their God, and they will be my children [21:3; 2 Sam. 7:14]. 8 But cowards, those ·who refuse to believe [without faith], who do ·evil [vile; detestable] things, who kill, who sin sexually, who do ·evil magic [sorcery], who worship idols, and who tell lies—all these will have ·a place [L their part] in the lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death [20:6].”

Revelation 21 

This will happen when ·many people have turned against God [rebellions/transgressions will reach their height]. 24 ·This king will be very powerful [L His power will be strong], but ·his power will not come from himself [L not his own power]. He will cause ·terrible [fearful] destruction and will be successful in everything he does. He will destroy powerful people and even ·God’s holy people [L the people of the holy ones]. 25 This king will succeed by using ·lies and force [L the deceit in his hand/power]. He will ·think that he is very important [L be great in his heart]. He will destroy many people ·without warning [or with ease]; he will ·try to fight [L stand against] even the Prince of princes! But ·that cruel king [L he] will be ·destroyed [L broken], and not by human ·power [L hand].

26 “The vision that has been shown to you about these evenings and mornings is true. But seal up the vision, because ·those things won’t happen for a long time [L it concerns many days from now].”

27 I, Daniel, became very weak and was sick for ·several days after that vision [L some days]. Then I got up and went back to work for the king, but I was very ·upset [dismayed; perplexed] about the vision. I didn’t understand what it meant.

Daniel 8 

Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Clown Skull & Bones Kerry told reporters in Antichrist Saudi Arabia that “ultimately a combination of diplomacy and pressure will be needed to bring about a political transition. Military pressure particularly may be necessary given Antichrist President Assad’s reluctance to negotiate seriously.”

Negotiate what exactly: how to hand himself over to the US? And since the answer doesn’t matter, whatever it is what the US wants will have to be achieved in the same way that the staged Syrian war of 2013 was presented to the world: using false flag video clips, which resulted in a near-global confrontation involving Antichrist Assad’s close ally over at the Putz Putin Antichrist Iran Kremlin.

Which brings us to the most important variable: Russia’s Antichrist prophetic response to any “military pressure” applied against Anti-Israel Assad. Again.

As RT reports, last November, Putz Putin Nuclear Antichrist Iran Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov commented on the issue, saying that: “Dipshit Russia condemns the use of extremist groups in efforts to change the regime [in Syria].” Clear, concise and the the point.

Today the ”YOU DIPSHIT RUSSIAN MORONS ARE GOING TO HELL TOO FOR DRINKING THE SAME WINE OF WRATH” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich added some more insight into how it feels about constant Western efforts to provoke a war with Syria:

Antichrist NWO 666 Skull & Bones John Kerry: “Military Pressure May Be Needed To Oust Antichrist Syria’s Anti-Antichrist Israel Antichrist President “

(The “moderate opposition” groups have taken a tougher stand at the talks with Damascus, hoping for external assistance)

(This is an alarming and disappointing stance that is obviously aimed at derailing the nascent trend for peace in)

That last assumes the west is interested in peace in Syria, when the entire point of introducing the Antichrist ISIS “element” is precisely to destabilize the region and bring it to all out war.

Just as one can be confident that the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 ISIS “Clown campaign” will continue and get ever closer to (fulfilling the prophecy of) Damascus…

(Isaiah 17 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap,

…being until yet another appropriately-framed YouTube clip appears and leads to another war with Assad. Because when petrodollar interests talk, mere innocent people are always expendable.

Antichrist ISIS Destroys Iraqi Archaeological Site Of Nimrud Near Mosul

“It is important to note that this part of the world — the Euphrates and Tigris River valleys — holds a record of the earliest development of states and urban economies, which was around 4000 B.C.,” said University of Michigan professor of anthropology Henry Wright, whose most recent field study in Syria was overtaken by Antichrist ISIS militants.

Faced with unified Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 POTUS Clown Democratic opposition to move ahead on the bill, Antichrist NWO 666 McConnell reversed course.

The move comes at a time delicate negotiations are at a critical juncture between the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 POTUS Clown U.S. and its partners and Antichrist Tehran.

“It is clear that Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Clown Senate Democrats will filibuster their own bill — a measure they rushed to introduce before the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Clown White House cut a deal with Antichrist Iran,” McConnell’s spokesman Donald Stewart said. “So, instead, the Antichrist NWO 666 Senate will turn next to the anti-human-trafficking legislation while Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Clown Democrats decide whether or not they believe they and Congress as a whole should be able to review and vote on any deal the Antichrist NWO 666 president cuts with the leaders of Antichrist Iran.”

Antichrist NWO 666 Senate majority leader decides not to fast-track Antichrist Iran bill

Antichrist Iran is the new Antichrist Nazi Germany—as any moderate Iranian ex-pat can testify—and permitting Antichrist Iran a nuclear threshold capability is as wise as it would have been to allow Antichrist Hitler a similar ability. I recollect that the Allies destroyed the Antichrist German heavy-water plant in Norway during World War II to disrupt the fledgling Antichrist Nazi nuclear program.

Antichrist NWO 666 Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Purpose in Addressing the Antichrist NWO 666 US Congress on Antichrist Iran 

Both of Antichrist Iran’s Supreme Leaders—the late Antichrist Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini and current reigning Antichrist Ayatollah Ali Khamenei—have continually called for the destruction of Israel and the liberation of Jerusalem. Former Antichrist Iranian Presidents Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad indicated their desire to see nuclear weaponry used against Israel. Given the animosity of the current Antichrist Iranian regime towards Israel and its long history of supporting any and all terrorist movements attacking Antichrist Jews and Israelis, the Israeli assessment of danger in Antichrist Iranian possession of nuclear weaponry capability is both prudent and warranted.

THEATRE OF WAR: Russia’s Defense Ministry Launches Massive Military Exercises In Its Southern Region – With Over 2,000 Troops, Grad Launchers And Over 500 Items Of Weaponry!

The field-type exercises of the air defense forces will be taking place until April 10 in twelve military firing ranges, located in Russia’s South, the North Caucasus and Crimean Federal Districts, as well as at Russian military bases in Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Armenia.

The drills involve self-propelled howitzers “Gvozdika”, multiple artillery rocket systems “Grad”, mortars “Podnos”, anti-tank missile systems “Konkurs”, and modern intelligence drones “Navodchik-2”.

“At the end of the field drills, tactical maneuvers are planned,” the statement said.

“Combat units will repeal strikes from the aggressor’s tactical aircraft, drones and precision weapon projectiles.”

“They will also carry out operational reconnaissance of the air situation in conditions of the electromagnetic warfare”, it added.

On Wednesday, a NATO flotilla of six ships arrived in the Black Sea to take part in the exercises with the Bulgarian, Romanian and Turkish ships, the alliance said in a statement, stressing that the training will take course “in full compliance with international conventions”.

Russia carries out military exercises on a regular basis. The country’s south saw 1,700-strong drills of radiation resistance troops in February, and the Pacific Fleet of the Russian Navy is set to exercise in the sea of Japan

Russia’s newest Su-30 multirole jets and Su-24 bombers practiced attack runs on NATO warships in the Black Sea

Russia’s newest multirole fighter jets have been using NATO ships in the Black Sea to practice attack scenarios.
Russian Su-30s and Su-24s aircraft from Russia’s Black Sea Fleet based in Crimea have been conducting attack runs on NATO warships operating in the Black Sea, Sputnik News reported.

According to the Russian media outlet, the jets, launched from Novofedorvka, an airbase captured on Mar. 22, 2014, in western Crimea peninsula 70 kilometres north of Sevastopol, have been monitoring the movements of two ships, the American USS Vicksburg (a Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser), and Turkey’s frigate The Turgut Reis.

On Mar. 3, a formation made of three Su-30s and four Su-24s overflew the NATO ships “to practice penetrating anti-air systems,” as affirmed by a source at the Sevastopol naval base who spoke to the Russian state agency.

Interestingly, the Russians believe these missions are used for training purposes by both sides: “These ships’ crews are doubtlessly conducting exercises in repelling air attacks from our planes, which gives our pilots the opportunity to gain experience in maneuvering and conducting aerial reconnaissance both in the range of anti-air systems and outside their range.”

Close encounters between Russian planes and NATO ships around the globe happen quite frequently (do you of Tu-95 Bear flew quite close to USS Nimitz in the Pacific?); they have just become a bit more frequent in the Black Sea since last year’s Russian annexation of Crimea: following the invasion of the peninsula, Moscow has moved combat planes to the local airbases and some of them pay visit to the NATO frigates in the vicinity every now and then.

In April 2014, a Su-24 Fencer flew multiple passes at 500 feet above sea level, within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, the U.S. Navy destroyer operating in the Black Sea at that time: a behaviour that the ship commander considered “provocative and inconsistent with international agreements.”

Anyway, according to a source at the Russia’s Chief Naval Staff quoted by TASS, the two NATO warships will be joined in the next few hours by the Italian frigate Aliseo and Canada’s frigate The Fregerickton which are passing through the Black Sea straits.

More close encounters ahead?

Unannounced Test of Strategic Nuclear Weapons Readiness Starts in Russia

Russia’s Strategic Missile Forces (SMF) have begun an unannounced test of its nuclear weapons near the central Russian city Yoshkar-Ola, the SMF’s press center said Wednesday.

“The Committee of the Command of Strategic Missile Forces is conducting an unannounced test of the condition and security provisions of nuclear weapons in the Yoshkar-Ola Missile Unit,” the SMF’s press service said in a statement.

The Yoshkar-Ola missile unit is armed with the Topol intercontinental nuclear-capable ballistic missile complex.

In February, the SMF held record-long drills that included more than 30 missile regiments. The same month, missile forces also completed command and staff exercises testing the troops’ combat readiness.
In January, SMF spokesman Col. Igor Egorov said that the Russian Strategic Missile Forces planned to conduct more than 100 drills in 2015.

Russian Bombers Force Commercial Flights Over Ireland To Divert Midair

Two Russian bombers forced commercial airline traffic flying in and out of Ireland to divert midair. The Tupolev Tu-95 bombers flew just off Ireland’s coast, resulting in civilian planes changing route or being grounded because the Russian warplanes were crossing commercial traffic airways. They were eventually intercepted by British Typhoon jets.

The incursion occurred on Feb. 18 but was reported only Wednesday by Irish authorities. The Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade had warned the Russian ambassador about a similar incident that occurred two weeks earlier. Ireland had sought assurances that similar incidents would not happen again.

Ireland, which is not a member of NATO and does not have an air force, usually calls on British jets to assist when commercial airspace that it is responsible for is infiltrated by unknown aircraft. Russia has made more than a hundred such flights in the last 12 months across Europe’s airspace, causing alarm and provoking interceptions by jet fighters while remaining over international waters.

In the first incident, which happened around Feb. 1, the Russian bombers came to a point 55 miles from the Irish coast. In the second, they flew for four hours near Ireland, getting as close as 12 miles.

British Royal Air Force jets were on hand to escort the bombers away from the commercial airspace on both occasions.

Irish Defense Minister Simon Coveney expressed the government’s unhappiness with the latter incident but said the incursion was not aimed at Ireland. Instead, it may have been meant to test British air defenses and send a message to London about its involvement in training Ukrainian soldiers.

World’s Data Could Fit on a Teaspoon-Sized DNA Hard Drive and Survive Thousands of Years 

The blueprint of every living thing on the planet is encoded in DNA. We know the stuff can hold a lot of information. But how much is a lot? We could theoretically encode the world’s data (from emails to albums, movies to novels) on just a few grams of DNA. DNA already preserves life itself—now it might also preserve life as we live it.

According to New Scientist, a gram of DNA could theoretically store 455 exabytes of data. And Quartz drives the point home. If the world has about 1.8 zettabytes of data, according to a 2011 estimate, all the world’s information would fit on a four-gram DNA hard drive the size of a teaspoon.

In The Very Near Future You Will Manufacture Whatever You Desire—Including “Living Things” Just Like The Fallen Angels/Watchers Of Old Did

As 3D manufacturing develops, this whole model I’ve described will be turned upside down. You will be able to design a product or a service digitally, upload it onto the Web and have that file available anywhere for printing.

So you could upload a design you did in your home to the Cloud, where it could be downloaded to anyone in China, India or the Bronx and printed on their 3D printer at home or at their local equivalent of a Kinko’s.

We’ve seen what has happened with Kinko’s. We used to go to Kinko’s in order to copy and reproduce documents and reports. Now, those photocopy functions moved to the home with high-quality printers.

The same thing will happen with 3D printers. You will be able to design, or download, the dress, the toy or the pottery you want and produce it in your closet.

WorldPost: The futurist Alvin Toffler called this “prosuming.” We will be both the producer and consumer at the same time.

Diamandis. Exactly that. We are exploding the number of innovators and creators around the world. Further, artificial intelligence will soon be able to understand what you are saying, what you are thinking about, what your desires are.

If you mix that with a 3D printer, you describe what you want, and what it looks like and go into an iterative process — “I want it smaller, make it red, not blue,” and so on. AI will print it. You are manufacturing what you desire.

FROM NATURAL SELECTION TO INTELLIGENT DIRECTION<<Funny coming from an Antichrist.

WorldPost: What about synthetic biology?

Diamandis: Today, the world of biology, which gives us our medicines and our foods, is based on the processes of nature over millions of years that created a diversity of organic molecules through the trial and error of natural selection.

In the future, we will reverse that process. We will go from evolution by natural selection to evolution by intelligent direction.

Now, by our own human trial and error science — we can discover a protein or a carbohydrate that has attributes making it useful as a fuel source. With AI and other digital tools, we will be able to design those proteins and carbohydrates ourselves and fit our purposes — whether as a vaccine, as a diet source or an energy source for cars, trains and planes.

In short, synthetic biology will enable us to think of the cell as a manufacturing platform for any particular organic material that we desire to produce.

CONNECTIVITY, NOT NEGATIVITY

WorldPost: Your view, then, is that the convergence of all these exponential technologies will lead to an “exponential transformation” — a leap into a new order, singularity?

Diamandis: I don’t write about singularity in this book, or my previous book, “Abundance.” What I focus on are the next 10 to 20 years, in which I believe we are headed toward an extraordinary future where we will be able to meet the basic needs of every man, woman and child on the planet.

In 2010, 70 countries were in extreme poverty. This year that number is down to 35. In the next 20 years, that number is projected to fall to zero.

WorldPost: Isn’t there also a competing future out there? Exponential degeneration is also possible. After all those magnificent world expos of the industrial arts at the turn of the 20th century, WWI erupted in 1914 in three months, from June to August. Today signs of splintering are all around in revived nationalism and geopolitical blocs, ardent religious war. ISIS, after all, spread across the Mid-East in a matter of months.

Diamandis: >>>Yes<<<, we have Antichrist ISIS. But the data (Supreme Court Corporate Citizen’s United soulless 666 image of the Beast caused to speak) overwhelmingly suggests the future I’ve been describing.

>>>One big problem<<< (HELLo) is that the (Antichrist NWO 666) news media has a grip on our imagination. The fundamental function of the news media is to deliver every piece of (Antichrist NWO 666 Lies And Propaganda) negative news to my living room in high definition over and over again. It’s a (Antichrist NWO 666) drug pusher that fuels our instinctual addiction to paying more attention to (THE ANTICHRIST OFFER(s) OF TEMPTATION) negative news instead of positive news.

Sure, there are lots of problems(LIKE THE MURDER AND DEATH OF HUMANITY). But the world is getting better (LMAO) in extraordinary ways we’ve never seen before. Though you wouldn’t believe it from the headlines, violence per capita of the global population is at its lowest point in history. Food, water, sanitation, health — all have improved dramatically over the last century and will improve even more dramatically in the decades ahead.

We all tend to have this negativity bias. We need to balance that out a lot more and focus on connectivity, not negativity. (How ’bout balancing out the revelation of our Father in Christ; The Whole Holy Spirit Truth In Agreement, The Risen Lord Of Hosts Proclaiming Eternal Salvation, By His Perfect Humility And Loving Mercy? …And Canning The Monolithic ”Knowledge” And ”Measure” Of A Man, His Name And Number 666, To The Bottomless Pit Of Hell!)

Churches in Lake Worth, population 36,000, have been ordered to acquire a Antichrist NWO 666 business license. As if the church has to get the Antichrist NWO 666 government’s permission to preach and pray?

But wait. It gets worse, folks.

Antichrist NWO 666 City officials were so concerned about one congregation that they dispatched a Antichrist NWO 666 code enforcement officer cloaked in a hoodie to spy on a Southern Baptist church that was meeting in a coffee house.

On a business trip to Washington DC, not long ago I met with two members of the Scottish Rite Freemasonry (whose names I cannot reveal), who have unrestricted access to the most secret and highest guarded documents of the Order. I joined one of them at The House of the Temple, the headquarters of the Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction, where the Supreme Council, 33rd Degree, have their meetings, and the other at the George Washington Masonic Memorial in Alexandria, Virginia. 

None of these lower-degree Masons with whom I have been acquainted would ever, insofar as I know, participate in a conspiracy toward a global world order in which people will be politically and spiritually enslaved. But as one former Freemason friend told me, “This is the veneer of the lower degrees that exists on the Order’s public face. What is happening with at least some of the members at the 33rd level, or among the York Rite Knights Templar and the Shriners, is another matter altogether.

When I was part of the brotherhood,” he continued, “I watched as specific members with the correct disposition and ideology were identified, separated, groomed, and initiated into the higher degrees for reasons you would find corresponding with the goals of a New World Order.”
Famous Freemason Foster Bailey once described how the Masons not included among this elite are unaware of an “Illuminati” presence among Master Masons, who in turn are the guardians of a secret “Plan”: 

Among dedicatories to those who support this “invisible” secret doctrine, there is a memorial alcove in the heart of the House of the Temple called the “Pillars of Charity.” Here, between two vaults on either side—one containing the exhumed remains of former Sovereign Grand Commander Albert Pike and the other containing Sovereign Grand Commander John Henry Cowles, marked by busts of each man on marble pedestals—a stained-glass window depicts the all-seeing eye above the words “Fiat Lux” emitting thirty-three beams of light downward onto the phrase “ordo ab chao” from ancient craft Masonic doctrine, “order out of chaos.”

At the House of the Temple, like elsewhere, “The Brotherhood of Darkness” (as my friend Dr. Stanley Monteith calls it) intentionally hides in plain sight the occult aspirations of universalism, which ultimately will be conceived in a one-world order and one-world religion under the son of Lucifer—Apollo/Osiris/Nimrod—or, as Manly Hall put it:

The outcome of the “secret destiny” is a World Order ruled by a King with supernatural powers. This King was descended of a divine race; that is, he belonged to the Order of the Illumined for those who come to a state of wisdom then belong to a family of heroes-perfected human beings.[v]
When Hall offered this astonishingly perceptive commentary about the future Masonic “King” who is “descended of a divine race” of “Illumined” (luciferic) “heroes-perfected” (half-man, half-god) human beings, he nailed exactly what the Watchers had done, and what the Cumaean Sibyl’s prophecy on the Great Seal of the United States says will occur concerning the coming of Apollo/Osiris/Nimrod.

But Whose All-Seeing Eye Is This, Anyway?

While different versions of the eye of providence or all-seeing eye have appeared throughout time within various cultures, the origin of each can usually be understood within the context of its adjoined symbolism. In the case of the all-seeing eye on the Great Seal of the United States, the connection to the uncapped Egyptian pyramid and to the Osiris-Apollo-related mottoes positively determines the culture to which this specific “eye” refers, and the solar deity represented by it: Osiris/Horus/Apollo/Nimrod.
This is further illustrated by the “numerological values” of the arcane mottoes, which were carefully chosen for the Great Seal due to their connection to the pagan deity. So important was it that the Masonic numbers three (3) and thirteen (13) be reinforced with the multi-named “god” (the numbers three and thirteen are historically connected with the deities Apollo, Osiris, and Nimrod, and this is why, for instance, the American space mission Apollo 13 was named after the deity and had this number), that not only was the original amount of American states intentionally set at thirteen, but Freemason David Ovason, whom Robert Hieronimus (considered one of the the world’s foremost authorities on the Great Seal) calls “exceptionally well referenced,” confirms how a letter was “cut” from the Latin word saeclorum (the usual spelling) in order to create the word seclorum to contribute to three sets of thirteen on the reverse side of the Great Seal.

After acknowledging that the top motto, annuit coeptis, had the obligatory thirteen letters, Ovason pointed out how saeclorum was letter-cut to join the bottom motto, novus ordo seclorum, so that the phrase would end up being seventeen letters, which when added to the nine numerals in the Roman date would equal a total of twenty-six, or two sets of the number thirteen. Combined with the top motto, these three sets of thirteen were very important to establish, Ovason says, in order to reflect the trinity represented in the Great Seal “Eye of Providence, and in the nominal triangle from which the pyramid is constructed.”[viii]

Based purely on the Great Seal’s symbolism, the trinity these three sets of the number thirteen denote is authoritatively identified as Osiris, Horus, and Isis, the pagan versions of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, respectively. The use of the number thirteen in this way also connects the Great Seal to the mythological and astrological significance of the legend of Osiris as the dying and rising god. It was evidently so important to maintain this talisman-like value, thirteen, that other phases of the design and layout of Washington DC were coordinated accordingly, says Ovason. This includes the laying of the White House cornerstone on October 13, 1792, by Masons, and the Fourth of July signing of the Declaration of Independence thirteen days after summer solstice, so that the sun would be on Sirius. In Egyptian mythology, the sun represented Osiris while the star Sirius symbolized Isis, and thirteen was the number of pieces of Osiris that Isis was able to find after Seth, his evil brother, murdered and threw fourteen pieces of him into the Nile. Isis searched the riverbank until she recovered every piece, except for his genitals, which had been swallowed by a fish. Isis replaced the missing organ with an Obelisk and magically impregnated herself with Horus. Therefore, in Masonic as well as in ancient Egyptian mythology, the number thirteen—used a total of thirteen times on the Great Seal, counting front and back—is the number that represents the return or resurrection of Osiris.

This mythology was so meaningful to the founding of the United States and the construction of its capital—including having the missing Osiris genitalia represented by the 6,666-inches-high Egyptian Obelisk known as the Washington Monument—that nearly all of David Ovason’s five hundred-plus-page Secret Architecture of Our Nation’s Capital is dedicated to establishing the singular correlation between Washington DC and Virgo, the constellation of Isis, or what Ovason calls, “Isis, who was the chief of the feminine mystery deities and the prototype of the steller Virgo.”[ix]

This affiliation existed from the very day Freemasons gathered on April 15, 1791, beginning appropriately at 3:30 PM (reflecting the mystical value, thirty-three) because of the astrological position of Jupiter and Virgo, and what this would mean for the secret destiny of America:

At exactly 3:30 PM, Jupiter…began to rise over the horizon. It was in 23 degrees of Virgo.… By this means, the zodiacal power of Virgo, which was called in later Masonic circles “the Beautiful Virgin,” was able to stamp her benign influence on the building of the federal city.… A few of the many Freemasons present at this ceremony would have been only to well aware of the profound implications of what they were doing.… It is quite clear that the ceremonial placing of the stone related to more than merely the founding of the federal district: it was somehow linked to the future destiny of America itself.[x]
By dedicating the United States through its astrological alignment to the “Virgin” constellation of Isis, the founders had dedicated the “destiny” of America to fulfilling the secret doctrine of Freemasonry, as also reflected in the Osiris/Apollo symbolism of the Great Seal, concerning subservience—now and upon his return as Antichrist—to Osiris/Apollo/Nimrod.

Interestingly, the same dedication to Osiris/Isis/Apollo exists in New York where the events of September 11, 2001, initiated the push toward the novus ordo seclorum. The Statue of Liberty in New York’s Harbor, which holds the Masonic “Torch of Enlightenment,” was presented in 1884 as a gift to American Masons by the French Grand Orient Temple Masons.

Designed by French Freemason and sculptor Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and built by another French Freemason, Gustave Eiffel, the statue was originally identified as “the goddess Isis” with the statue’s head formed to represent “the Greek Sun-god Apollo…as preserved on an ancient marble tablet (today in the Archaeological Museum of Corinth, Corinth, Greece)—Apollo was represented as a solar deity, dressed in a similar robe and having on its head a ‘radiate crown’ with the seven spiked rays of the Helios-Apollo’s sun rays.”[xi]

The legend of Osiris and Isis, the connection with Apollo, the magical number thirteen, and the history surrounding their mythos is often openly discussed in Masonic and brotherhood-friendly literature. For instance in Morals and Dogma, Albert Pike enumerated the esoteric significance of the Osiris epic at length, adding that lower-level Masons (Blue Masonry) are ignorant of its true meaning, which is only known to those who are “initiated into the Mysteries.”[xii] Pike also spoke of the star Sirius—connected to Isis and at length to Lucifer/Satan—as “still glittering” in the Masonic lodges as “the Blazing Star.” Elsewhere in Morals and Dogma, Pike reiterated that the “All-Seeing Eye…was the emblem of Osiris”[xiii] and that the “Sun was termed by the Greeks the Eye of Jupiter, and the Eye of the World; and his is the All-Seeing Eye in our Lodges.”[xiv]

Once people understand this illuminated Masonic connection to the “trinity” on America’s Great Seal, and what the prophetic symbolism, mottoes, and numerology imply, it becomes apparent why so much effort was put forward for so long by those who felt it was necessary to hide this extraordinary destiny. Ovason acknowledges this conspiracy of silence as well:

The motto at the top of the seal, Annuit Coeptis, is from Virgil…from the Aeneid.… This is a prayer to the god Jupiter.… We should observe that while the subject matter of the reverse of the seal is undoubtedly pagan—if symbolic of hermetic Egypt—the superior motto is itself a prayer to a pagan god. Could this be the reason why there has been so much reluctance to bring the reverse of the seal into the light of day? Whatever the nature of the god, the prayer directed in this way is a petition that the daring undertaking [the secret destiny of America as symbolized in “finishing” the pyramid] may be completed, and that the new age will find fulfillment.[xv]

Ovason, a Mason whose research earned praise from Fred Kleinknecht, Sovereign Grand Commander of the 33rd-Degree Supreme Council of Freemasons in Washington DC, is to be thanked for inadvertently revealing what the Illuminatus has secretly known for ages—that the Great Seal of the United States is a pagan prophecy and petition to a pagan god (the same entity the Bible identifies by name as the end-times Antichrist) to assist in the conclusion of the great work by his return. “When we have grasped the importance of these New Age expectations,” Ovason concludes, “we shall be in a better position to understand why the design for this reverse [side of the Great Seal] has remained so consistently hidden.”

Many people have heard the quote from Britain’s Victorian Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli when he said that the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes. One should keep that in mind as they wind their way through the darkest pages of conspiracy history.

There are many in this world that are well aware of the convoluted history of the secret societies and their occult practices. Some of them include the Rosicrucians, the Knights Templar, the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the P2 Lodge, the Priory of Zion and the CIA.

However in the beginning there were the Masonic Brotherhoods.

THE NIMROD TECHNOLOGY 

CERN has now thrust us into discovering an occult science that can be seen as dangerous as it literally is meant to cut through the veil of dimensions giving it the power of a stargate.

Some people actually believe that the use of the Large Hadron Collider could trigger or force the return of Jesus Christ to the earth.

In essence the powers of the world are using their machinery and occult rituals to build a better antichrist presence on the planet and insure that the people will follow the administration of the new order blindly and fully as they fear a demonic world.
The intelligence corps that has kept secrets regarding a possible demonic alien presence from us knows exactly when and how to implement the reality for their own proposes.

We may receive information telling us that the time barrier has been conquered and that the dimensions will reveal that there are more things in Heaven and Earth that can be dreamt of in any philosophy — or any dimension.

The future will be forged with new revelation, wonder and a war of what we should or should not be doing with our scientific leaps.

‘The Nimrod Technology’ w/ Pastor Paul Begley – March 5, 2015 

The two intervening years have been spent servicing and improving the collider.

“All the magnets have been surveyed, the connections between them have been X-rayed and strengthened, and all the electrical and cryogenic systems have been checked out and optimised,” Prof Shears says.

This effort – between one and two million hours of work, all told – means that the LHC is now ready to operate at its “design energy”.

LHC restart: ‘We want to break physics’ 

One of the more dynamic projects that the communications branch is developing a “Google Glass” for combat soldiers to wear. Soldiers will be able to provide real time information that will connect to command and control screens, where people manning the stand will able to assess a soldier’s situation on the battlefield. “Of course the goal is not to confuse, but to add information that can help fighters make correct decisions – to prevent firing at our forces for example,” said Capt. Rotem.

The “Google Glass” is being transformed into military technology that will eventually take a step further and be re-purposed for many other vital uses such as transport, navigation and identification. These concepts will be introduced through the development of applications, that will connect commanders in the field with the general staff.

“We have completed our first application that works on a mobile platform – mobile logistics transportation,” explained Capt. Rotem. “It displays a map on the screen, displaying the route they are taking to deliver logistics, trucks with weapons, etc. This enables the commanders to gather updates on the delivery during the fighting, when it will reach the area – and be able to control the means of transport.”

Real time combat

Applications developed, such as the logistics application, will form the basis for many others to be developed for use by the end of 2015. There is a wide range of ideas, both in combat and operational support; applications that can help fighters navigate the battlefield and identify goals, possibly identify and confirm dead soldiers under a biometric element.

The realization of greater mobility and real time interaction between combat soldiers and commanders has become the recent objective through development of technology. The progression of “Google Glass” like technology is the first step to bringing combat and operational units together, while also preventing harm to soldiers on the battlefield with last minute absolute decision making.

NASA’s Dawn spacecraft has reached dwarf planet Ceres and achieved orbit around it on Friday, March 6, 2015. Dawn was approximately 61 000 km (38 000 miles) away from Ceres when it was captured by its gravity at about 12:39 UTC.

Mission controllers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) received a signal from the spacecraft at 13:36 UTC that Dawn was healthy and thrusting with its ion engine, the indicator Dawn had entered orbit as planned.

“Since its discovery in 1801, Ceres was known as a planet, then an asteroid and later a dwarf planet,” said Marc Rayman, Dawn chief engineer and mission director at JPL. “Now, after a journey of 4.9 billion km (3.1 billion miles) and 7.5 years, Dawn calls Ceres, home.”

In addition to being the first spacecraft to visit a dwarf planet, Dawn also has the distinction of being the first mission to orbit two extraterrestrial targets.

From 2011 to 2012, the spacecraft explored the giant asteroid Vesta, delivering new insights and thousands of images from that distant world. Ceres and Vesta are the two most massive residents of our solar system’s main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

“Both Vesta and Ceres were on their way to becoming planets, but their development was interrupted by the gravity of Jupiter,” said Carol Raymond, Dawn deputy principal investigator at JPL. “These two bodies are like fossils from the dawn of the solar system, and they shed light on its origins.”

Ceres and Vesta have several important differences. Ceres is the most massive body in the asteroid belt, with an average diameter of 950 km (590 miles). Vesta has an average diameter of 525 km (326 miles), and is the second most massive body in the belt. The asteroid formed earlier than Ceres and is a very dry body. Ceres, in contrast, is estimated to be 25 percent water by mass.

The most recent images received from the spacecraft, taken on March 1 show Ceres as a crescent, mostly in shadow because the spacecraft’s trajectory put it on a side of Ceres that faces away from the sun until mid-April. When Dawn emerges from Ceres’ dark side, it will deliver ever-sharper images as it spirals to lower orbits around the planet.

Dawn spacecraft arrives at dwarf planet Ceres

An unusually large basin nearly 300 km (186 miles) across is seen just south of the equator, with a shallow interior, faint rim and low-relief mounds within. Several bright spots are seen, including two that are very bright and lie within a single crater north of the equator.

The bright spot in the center of that crater is too small to be resolved at this distance, so its true brightness is not yet known.

“We feel exhilarated,” said Chris Russell, principal investigator of the Dawn mission at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). “We have much to do over the next year and a half, but we are now on station with ample reserves, and a robust plan to obtain our science objectives.”

Ceres is named for the Roman goddess of agriculture and harvests. Craters on Ceres will similarly be named for gods and goddesses of agriculture and vegetation from world mythology. Other features will be named for agricultural festivals.
