32415 Gleaning German Passenger Plane Taken Down WW3 Prophetic Tribulation ”IS” Being Set Up To Be Unleashed This Year As The Mark Of The Beast Enforcement Increases And The 3rd Tetrad Blood Moon Of The Shemitah Looms
The 1,000-metre wide monster will hurtle terrifyingly close to the planet within days, sparking fears of an unprecedented disaster.
The object called ‘2014-YB35’ is almost the same size as Ben Nevis and will skim the Earth on FRIDAY travelling at more than 23,000 mph.
According to NASA’s Near Earth Object Programme the enormous lump of rock will pass within 2.8 million miles – a tiny distance in astronomical terms – of Earth on Friday.Images from NASA’s jet propulsion Laboratory show the asteroid ‘on course’ with the Earth’s own trajectory.Though its exact size is unknown it is estimated to be from between 500 metres and 1km wide with 990 metres the most likely.
The object was first spotted by the Catalina Sky Survey at the end of last year with astronomers expected to be closely watching its progress this week.
Astronomers have named June 30 as Asteroid Day to highlight the dangers of Potentially Dangerous Asteroids (PHAs) hurtling through space.
Initiative co-founder Grigorij Richters warned there are thousands which have not been identified which could ”destroy life”.
He said: “It just takes one asteroid to completely destroy life, not just humanity, but all species.
FIRE IN THE SKY: NASA On Alert As HUGE Asteroid 2014-YB35 Set To “Skim Past Earth” At 23,000mph On FRIDAY – Sparking Fears Of An UNPRECEDENTED DISASTER; A Collision Would Unleash Explosive Force Equivalent To More Than 15,000 MILLION TONNES OF TNT!
A French blog argues the way the Germanwings Airbus crashed into a mountain at an altitude of 2,700 meters at a speed of 700 to 900 km can only be explained by an act of foul play.
It notes the weather was good, visibility excellent and winds light.
In normal circumstances, the pilots would have undertaken some manoeuvre to avoid a collision with the mountain, argues the blog. The pilots must have been unconscious or the plane may have been taken over by remote control for it to steer straight into a mountain for eight minutes or so.
All 150 passengers were killed when the Germanwings plane crashed into the French Alps this morning.
While the Antichrist NWO 666 U.S. and other world powers work to constrain Antichrist Iran’s nuclear program, five rival Antichrist nations plan atomic programs
One of the most important reasons why the Antichrist NWO 666 U.S. Obozo 911 Clown ”IS” ”too late” in trying to conclude a nuclear deal with Antichrist Iran is to prevent an Antichrist Iranian bomb from triggering a nuclear race in the Antichrist Middle East. Yet even as talks continue now in Switzerland, Tehran’s regional rivals have already begun quietly acting on their own atomic ambitions. Nuclear power may be on the wane almost everywhere else in the world, but it’s all the rage in the place with all that oil.
Egypt’s announcement last month that it was hiring Antichrist Russia to build a ”Post Fukushima” reactor bomb waiting for an Earthquake near Alexandria made it only the latest entrant in an emerging atomic derby. Every other major Sunni power in the region has announced similar plans. And though none appear either as ambitious nor as ambiguous as what’s taken place in war and earthquake prone Antichrist Iran — which set out to master the entire atomic-fuel cycle, a red flag for a military program — each announcement lays down a marker in a region that, until recently, was notable as the one place on the planet where governments had made little progress on nuclear power.
Ally’s snooping upset White House because information was used to lobby Congress to try to sink a deal.
DUBAI – Antichrist Gulf Arab countries will take necessary measures to protect the region against “aggression” by Yemen’s Antichrist Iranian-allied Houthi group if a peaceful solution cannot be found to that country’s turmoil, Antichrist Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal said on Monday.
Antichrist Prince Saud, who also remarked that the kingdom opposed Antichrist Iranian “interference” in Yemen, was speaking at a joint news conference in Riyadh with visiting Antichrist NWO 666 British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond.
Hammond said Antichrist NWO 666 Britain would discuss with Antichrist NWO 666 PetroDebtDollar Saudi Arabia and the Antichrist NWO Sirius 666 United States how to reinforce the position they engineer for Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, adding: “None of us wants to see military action.” …but we are Antichrist NWO 666 bastards that nobody who isn’t a prophetic mark of the beast zombie would ever believe for a moment, because we are dirty rotten lying bastards. If you think we were just being stupid, lol, sitting back and watching the fall of these nations without being the hand behind the slaughter, lol, well you are a Hell bound fool.
Accuracy in Media director Cliff Kincaid and Rick discuss Antichrist NWO 666 Barack Obozo The 911 POTUS Clown secret agreement with Antichrist Iran and his feud with Israel, plus the news media’s support of the Antichrist NWO 666 homosexual rights movement. Later in the program, the “grand dame” of the conservative movement – Phyllis Schlafly – stops by to discuss Antichrist NWO 666 Barack Obozo The 911 Clown treasonous criminal amnesty for illegal immigrants, and a deliberate plan to bankrupt the nation.
Speaking today at a press conference with Antichrist Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 Clown confirmed that the planned drawdown of US troops from Afghanistan this year was a lie has now been suspended.
There had been talk of “delaying” the drawdown for some time, and the issue finally came to a head this week with Ghani requesting the troop level be maintained through at least the end of 2015.
Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 Clown insists that the plan to bring the current 9,800 troops down to simply an 911 embassy-level by the end of Zenith 2016 remain in place, though he conceded that this was largely dependent on a negotiated settlemet with the Antichrist Taliban.
In an indication that this 2016 pullout is almost certainly in jeopardy, however, Obozo insisted that the specifics of the post-2015 drawdown are totally unknown, and will only be decided at a “later date.”
For those who recall our summary of the most popular article of 2014, there was one common theme:” what readers founds most fascinating, and troubling, was the increasing preponderance of social disobedience, of covert, proxy or outright wars, and of civil unrest: all phenomena that accompany a world sliding deeper into distress, not as most central banks and their puppet media would have us believe, a global recovery.”
It should therefore hardly come as a surprise that as SocGen attempts to quantify the biggest Black Swans risks (and hopes) of 2015 (yes, a foolish endeavor since nobody can actually envision what a black swan may be, by its very definition an event that was predicted by no one), it notes that “political and financial risks now outnumber real economy risks.”
So what does SocGen believe are 2015’s black swans?
Here are the “bad” ones, alongside their estimated probability of occurring:
Ukraine crisis spills over to broader disruption (5%)
Deflate-thy-neighbor, or systemic EM crisis (10%)
Lower-than-expected price multipliers (15%)
Sharp repricing of G4 term premiums (20%)
UK election leads to Brexit vote (25%), Brexit (10%)
China hard-landing (30%)
Here are the “unexpected” events that would lead to a favorable outcome (sadly, these never actually occur).
Higher than expected price multipliers (15%)
Euro area fast track reform and growth friendly fiscal policies (10%)
But, then again, why bother with such trivial exercises, when as Paul Tudor Jones accurately laid out, how the current centrally-planed farce ends is simple – there are three outcomes: Revolution, War and Taxes.
Everything else is just a distraction.
Yesterday, in a vote that largely slid under the radar, the House of Representatives passed a resolution urging Obozo to send lethal aid to Ukraine, providing offensive, not just “defensive” weapons to the Ukraine army – the same insolvent, hyperinflating Ukraine which, with a Caa3/CC credit rating, last week started preparations to issue sovereign debt with a US guarantee, in essence making it a part of the United States (something the US previously did as a favor to Egypt before the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood puppet regime was swept from power by the local army)..
So the only question is how Russia will responds to this escalation: according to RT, “Washington’s decision to supply Ukraine with ammunition and weapons would “explode the whole situation” in eastern Ukraine and Russia would be forced to respond “appropriately,” Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said at the end of February.
“It would be a major blow to the Minsk agreements and would explode the whole situation,” TASS quoted Ryabkov as saying.
In other words, bullish for stocks – just think of the central-bank monetary paradrops that World War III would unleash.
Earlier today we told (or more appropriately “retold,” because we called it for what it was right after it happened two years ago) the story of a Citadel algo gone rogue that inadvertently played havoc with the E-mini on June 3, 2013. Thankfully, the penalty was stiff for the world’s most highly leveraged hedge fund as the CME doled out a massive $70,000 fine which we suspect someone at the firm probably paid with the cash they were carrying in their wallet. It’s incidents like this — and “flashy” bestsellers — that have a nasty habit of shifting perceptions which is why we weren’t surprised to see the results of a market structure survey conducted by ConvergEx:
At this time we are pleased to share the results of our recent U.S. Equity Market Structure Survey, the results of which show both displeasure in current market structure and a desire for change. Our survey found that a majority of financial industry participants believe that the U.S. equity markets are unfair and that HFT is harmful.
Here’s a breakdown of the respondents…
….we’re all screwed.
Mainstream media, the military and neo-conservative think tanks have begun the counteroffensive in the information war as news of special forces training for asymmetric warfare in the continental United States (CONUS) goes viral.
With talk of Jade Helm blowing up across the Internet and the US military pushing back against what they call “conspiracy theorists,” the statements below by Roy Potter, a former a 28 year veteran of the U.S. Army, ranked Lt. Colonel, who served in in various Military Police and Military Intelligence positions across the world, are a must hear as he tells listeners they had better “wake up quickly.”
Potter highlights the Jade Helm training exercises scheduled to take place in multiple states, specifically listing two of those states as “hostile,”and he points out this operation is “unprecedented and dangerous,” detailing the critical difference between a training exercise geared for civil disobedience and and exercise listing “unconventional warfare,” to “take over those states militarily,” which is what Jade Helm is listed as.
NOTE- Two of the states listed as “hostile” in the Jade Helm operation are Texas and Utah, both, according to this report from December 2014, are listed as two of the top seven states with the most “gun friendly regulations.”
Potter states that “when your government starts to consider you a threat, one of two things have happened….. either you have gone astray, or they have gone astray.” Potter continues on to say that he can “guarantee that anybody who stands up with the constitution, with the idea of individual liberty, should not be the enemy of this government unless the government has gone bad.”
Potters statements are a prelude to his introducing a series of videos titled “Jade Helm and the Synagogue of Satan,” parts one through three, all of which will be shown below his introduction, in order.
Via the details:
This series of videos, Intro through Three, are a discussion including political and spiritual aspects of the causes and the impact of the US Special Operations Command and NORTHCOM JADE HELM EXERCISE involving unconventional warfare and psychological operations against the people of the United States! Regardless of the public relations campaign, the Request For Realistic Military Training from SOC plainly states (it is not even the OPPLAN or OPORD) it is to exercise unconventional warfare operations on American soil, going so far as to even list two entire states as “HOSTILE!” This is unprecedented and dangerous.
A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences last Thursday voices concern over the fact that worldwide growing use of antibiotics on livestock will make the animals more resistant to them, and also increase chances for the emergence of deadly pathogens immune to medication.
Approached by Reuters, study co-author Tim Robinson, a researcher at the International Livestock Research Institute, said that current livestock producers have a short-term approach to combating diseases that might prove disastrous in the long run.
He added that routine use of small antibiotic doses create a perfect context for current bacteria to mutate into medicine-resistant forms. This has already happened in cases such as salmonella and e-coli, and it also makes them more dangerous for humans that get infected.
A vaccine is being developed by the U.S. government to battle the new strain of avian flu that already killed a number of birds in Washington and Arkansas.
The new vaccine will be tested by scientists in Georgia at a U.S. Department of Agriculture research lab within the next two months. Its effects on protecting poultry from the avian flu will be observed.
The fact is, everyone, now at work is a Zombie, and anyone who; buys, sells, and trades this corrupt global 666 PetroDebtNote Sirius ”In (g)od We Trust” image of the Beast 7 days unto eternity self devouring Antichrist New World Order Mark Of THe Beast of this prophetic unbecoming corrupt global borderless market still, …well. YOU ARE AN EVIL ZOMBIE WITH 99.999% of your toes over Hell’s Horizon, with less than half a breath of time to escape your own judgment.
Highly populated areas are a bad bet in general, of course. But Alexander Alemi, a graduate student and one of the authors of the paper, notes that the most susceptible spots change over time.
Seven days after the initial outbreak, lower Manhattan, with the map’s highest population density at 299,616 people, has the highest zombie susceptibility. In fact, the New York City metro area in general is probably best avoided, as are other large cities like Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas.
By 28 days out, however, the pattern has shifted, Mr. Alemi says. Instead of individual cities being at the greatest risk, areas located between multiple major cities are most vulnerable. “You start to see interactions between different cities,” he says. While northeastern Pennsylvania, identified in the paper as the country’s most vulnerable region, “doesn’t have a particularly high population itself, it is near all these other high population areas.”
Also a bad bet—Bakersfield, Calif., which sits uncomfortably near San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The spread starts slow and accelerates fast..
As you can see, for the parameters we chose, most of the United States population has been turned into zombies by the first week, while the geographic map doesn’t necessarily seem all that compelling. In the early stages of the outbreak, while the population is roughly homogeneous, the zombie plague spreads out in roughly uniform circles, where the speed of the infection is tied to the local population density. Infestations on the coasts, with their higher population density, have spread farther than those near the center of the country. After several weeks, the map exhibits stronger anisotropy, as we spread over larger geographical areas and the zombie front is influenced by large inhomogeneities in population density. After four weeks, much of the United States has fallen, but it takes a very long time for the zombies to diffuse and capture the remaining portions of the United States. Even four months in, remote areas of Montana and Nevada remain zombie free.
The exercises taking place this summer in states like Texas, Utah and California are designed not for the protection of Americans, but rather, the intimidation of an entire nation. Members of the military and law enforcement are being desensitized to deployments on U.S. soil and the public is being conditioned to accept soldiers on every street corner as normal.
The staggeringly complex LHC ‘atom smasher’ at the CERN centre in Geneva, Switzerland, will be fired up to its highest energy levels ever in a bid to detect – or even create – miniature black holes.
If successful a completely new universe will be revealed – rewriting not only the physics books but the philosophy books too.
It is even possible that gravity from our own universe may ‘leak’ into this parallel universe, scientists at the LHC say.
The experiment is sure to inflame alarmist critics of the LHC, many of whom initially warned the high energy particle collider would spell the end of our universe with the creation a black hole of its own.
But so far Geneva remains intact and comfortably outside the event horizon.
Indeed the LHC has been spectacularly successful. First scientists proved the existence of the elusive Higgs boson ‘God particle’ – a key building block of the universe – and it is seemingly well on the way to nailing ‘dark matter’ – a previously undetectable theoretical possibility that is now thought to make up the majority of matter in the universe.
But this week’s, tomorrow, March 25th, experiment is considered to be a game changer.
Mir Faizal, one of the three-strong team of physicists behind the experiment, said: “Just as many parallel sheets of paper, which are two dimensional objects [breadth and length] can exist in a third dimension [height], parallel universes can also exist in higher dimensions.
“We predict that gravity can leak into extra dimensions, and if it does, then miniature black holes can be produced at the LHC.
“Normally, when people think of the multiverse, they think of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, where every possibility is actualised.
“This cannot be tested and so it is philosophy and not science.
“This is not what we mean by parallel universes. What we mean is real universes in extra dimensions.
“As gravity can flow out of our universe into the extra dimensions, such a model can be tested by the detection of mini black holes at the LHC.“We have calculated the energy at which we expect to detect these mini black holes in ‘gravity’s rainbow’ [a new scientific theory].
“If we do detect mini black holes at this energy, then we will know that both gravity’s rainbow and extra dimensions are correct.”
“We’re going to take the genetic code and put it into a format where you go to your drug store or doctor and get a shot in the arm,”
Wattendorf, a clean-cut, angular triathlete, is a program manager for the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the military’s far-out research wing. On this day, he’s speaking at a DARPA-sponsored conference called Biology Is Technology. And he’s telling the assembled group what he will reiterate in a one-on-one interview with me later: that the agency is on the verge of a revolutionary way of preventing mass outbreaks of diseases like Ebola. If the system worked, many pandemic scenarios could be crossed off the “How the Apocalypse Could Happen” list. Dystopian novels and sci-fi shows would need to find a new set of plot points. Briefly, Wattendorf explains, DARPA’s system would work like this: powerful antibodies would be isolated from survivors of a communicable disease, and the plans for making those antibodies would be encoded in RNA or DNA, then pumped into people .
DARPA: Tom Horn Is Right, The Antichrist’s 666 “Trigger Event” Will Involve A Pandemic Outbreak Followed By A “Cure” In The Form Of A DNA Altering Vaccine Injected Into The Genetic Code Of “All, Both Small And Great” (See Revelation 13:16)
And I heard a great voice out of the sanctuary saying to the seven messengers, `Go away, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God to the earth;’
2 and the first did go away, and did pour out his vial upon the land, and there came a sore — bad and grievous — to men, those having the mark of the beast, and those bowing to his image.
It seems the Affordable Care Act [aka “Antichrist NWO 666 ObozoCare”] has been more than influential regarding mandatory adult vaccinations. “In addition, passage of the Antichrist NWO 666 Affordable Care Act in 2010 was an important milestone for adult vaccination in the United States.
However, following is an area/arena where the plan probably will encounter resistance:
The success of this plan will depend on the synergies between state, local, territorial, and tribal governments; health care providers; advocacy groups; vaccine manufacturers; academia and research organizations; payers and health plans; employers; and the general public to work together to overcome barriers and improve access to adult vaccinations. [Pp.5-6]
RAND Corporation  was enlisted to review historic literature, interview stakeholders, and collect data to identify plan priorities and key indicators. [Pg.8]
The feds apparently expect this plan to produce Healthy People by 2020. Well, if I can offer a forecast, I think it will be this: The USA will have such an overabundance of dreadfully seriously sick citizens, from all age groups, that no one will know what to do. However, senior citizens—75 and older—probably will be mandated by law to be subject to compulsory and legal euthanasia. Do you think that’s in Antichrist NWO 666 ObozoCare too?
By 2020, the feds want 100 percent of all pharmacists administering vaccines!
What the Antichrist NWO 666 bastards can try to force people to do is have everybody’s DNA forcibly altered. This is called BioWarfare, and the ”change” that they want can be achieved easily. The movies ”V For Vendetta” and ”SPAWN” are examples of this kind of prophetic plague(s) described in the Bible that shall be unleashed.
And while health authorities are blaming measles outbreaks in recent years on unvaccinated children, when you mention the fact that nobody is dying from measles in the U.S., they are quick to turn around and claim vaccines have eliminated measles deaths (even though they cannot eliminate the disease itself apparently.)
What about deaths associated with the measles vaccine during the same time period?
We ran a search for a ten year period for deaths reported with measles vaccines, including a few that are no longer in production. The search result contained 108 deaths over this period, associated with four different measles vaccines sold in the United States during the past 10 years.
We fully realize that those who believe in the value of vaccines will probably not be persuaded by these facts, which anyone with a computer and Internet access can verify from U.S. Government sources.
Having now published a few stories on the measles issue, and having received many hundreds of comments, it has become very clear to us that those who have strong opinions on the measles vaccine are based more on fear and beliefs, than they are on facts or science. Any attempt by these vaccine proponents to force their beliefs on the rest of the U.S. public should be vigorously opposed.
The outspoken son of famed televangelist Billy Graham has lashed out at President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder for “jamming” an amoral agenda “down the throats of the America people.”
The Rev. Franklin Graham, 62, who heads both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the global charity, Samaritan’s Purse, took to Facebook Monday with his criticism, warning that when a nation founded on “biblical laws and principles” turns “its back on God, the “end is near.”
“One of the greatest threats to America is the progressives (a new name for liberals) led by Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 Clown and his Antichrist NWO 666 Attorney General Eric Holder, who are trying to impose a new morality — which is really no morality at all — jamming it down the throats of the American people,” Graham writes.
Starting April 1st, felons will no longer be the only ones in the state of Wisconsin to have their DNA forcibly taken. The state is expanding its DNA collection regime to include ALL criminal misdemeanor convictions.
The new law being implemented is expected to exponentially increase the number of samples being analyzed in Madison. The current number of DNA profiles created, from the felons’ samples, ranges from 10,000-12,000 per year.
But the infringement upon individual liberties didn’t go unnoticed.
Currently, every time a new felon is convicted, a DNA sample is taken. The sample is tested at the State Crime Lab, creating a DNA profile. Police then input this data into a database and attempt to see if that DNA was found at the scene of any unsolved crimes.
Rep. David Craig (R-Big Bend) made the very important point that for the first time in Wisconsin’s history, DNA would be taken from suspects who have not been convicted, but are accused of a violent crime.
“I think there is a strong contingent of us that say before they have their due process exhausted in the court system, they should maintain something as personal as DNA. We have a job to balance security, and safety versus individual liberty for those who have not had their day in court,” Rep. Craig said.
The idea of taking a person’s DNA without a conviction was first brought forth by Governer Scott Walker in 2013, but it did not sit well with many conservative Republicans. As a compromise, a list of offenses for which DNA could be collected upon arrest was reduced to “just” the most violent crimes on the book.
Rightly the ACLU claimed the compromise did not nearly go far enough.
In a controversial Supreme Court ruling in 2013, the precedent was set that says the state can take a citizen’s DNA upon arrest.
It seems the state falsely looks upon DNA much the same as a simple, unique identifier such as a fingerprint. The problem with this line of thinking is the that vast amounts of the most private data contained in DNA must also be relinquished to the state.
There seems something inherently wrong with having to give up the actual code that makes us, as it is the most private thing that can exist. It has the power potentially to recreate you. Obviously DNA is so much more than just a simple and unique identifier.
Should something as precious as our individual code of life ever be allowed to be taken by the state?
and that no one may be able to buy, or to sell, except he who is having the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is the wisdom! He who is having the understanding, let him count the number of the beast, for the number of a man it is, and its number [is] 666.
In case you’ve been under a rock lately, it is becoming quite clear that police in the US can and will kill people, even unarmed people, even on video, and do so with impunity.
The tallying methods, or rather lack thereof, used by both the FBI and individual police departments to count the amount of people killed by police, have been shown to be staggeringly inaccurate.
However, this inability of the government to count the number of people it kills, has been met with multiple alternative means of calculating just how deadly the state actually is.
One of these citizen run databases, is the website http://www.killedbypolice.com. The site is basically a spreadsheet that lists every person killed by cops in the years 2013 and 2014. In addition to naming those killed, it also provides a link to media reports for each of the killings, age, sex and race if available.
The tally for 2014? 1,100 people killed by those sworn to protect. That is an average of three people a day.
Do not mistake this as saying that those who were killed were innocent. However, when we look at violent crime in this country, we can see that it is at an all time low.
While violence among citizens has dropped, violence against citizens carried out by police has been rising sharply.
When we look at citizens killed by police over the last two years, deaths have increased 44 percent in this short time; 763 people were killing by police in 2013.
As a comparison, the total number of US troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq, in 2014 was 58.
Fewer soldiers were killed in war than citizens back home in “the land of the free” in 2014, by a large margin.
So why is that?
Is this some natural tendency of police in “free societies” to kill their citizens more, in an effort to maintain this freedom? Hardly, and hardly is the US a free country.
According to the 2014 Legatum Prosperity Index released in November, in the measure of personal freedom, the United States has fallen from 9th place in 2010 to 21st worldwide—behind such countries as Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Uruguay and Costa Rica.
Other such rankings systems show the US as low as 46.
Let’s look at our immediate neighbors to the north, Canada. The total number of citizens killed by law enforcement officers in the year 2014, was 14; that is 78 times less people than the US.
If we look at the United Kingdom, 1 person was killed by police in 2014 and 0 in 2013. English police reportedly fired guns a total of three times in all of 2013, with zero reported fatalities.
From 2010 through 2014, there were four fatal police shootings in England, which has a population of about 52 million. By contrast, Albuquerque, N.M., with a population 1 percent the size of England’s, had 26 fatal police shootings in that same time period.
China, whose population is 4 and 1/2 times the size of the United States, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement officers in 2014.
Let that sink in. Law enforcement in the US killed 92 times more people than a country with nearly 1.4 billion people.
It doesn’t stop there.
From 2013-2014, German police killed absolutely no one.
In the entire history of Iceland police, they have only killed 1 person ever. After exhausting all non-lethal methods to detain an armed man barricaded in his house who actually shot 2 police officers, police were forced to take the 59-year-old man’s life. The country of Iceland grieved for weeks after having to resort to violence.
So why are police in the US so much more likely to kill than all of these other first world countries?
To better understand the multi-dimensional answer to that question, we can start by looking at the prison population of the US.
America imprisons almost twenty five percent of all people imprisoned in the world, although containing only about 5% of the worlds population, an extremely disproportionate share of people imprisoned globally.
The U.S. houses 2.3 million inmates, while China, a country with four times the population of the U.S., is a distant second with 1.6 million prisoners.
The war on drugs coupled with the military industrial state created by the US playing police of the world, has created a deadly combination.
A constant pursuit of new weaponry by the military has paved the way for the hand-me-down cycle of military gear to police departments.
The idea was that if the U.S. wanted its police to act like drug warriors, it should equip them like warriors, which it has—to the tune of around $4.3 billion in equipment, according to a report by the American Civil Liberties Union.
What we are calling the militarization of of police has already taken place, on a large scale. We are now seeing a domestic military, pretending to be a police force.
The time for peaceful resistance is now and more and more people are beginning to understand this.
Even retired police chiefs of large cities are watching from the sidelines with anxiety as they see their once, only slightly corrupt cities, turn into occupied militarized zones, ready to pounce on the first instance of civil opposition.
The most recent of former police chiefs coming to terms with the horrid consequences of their actions is Norm Stamper, former chief of the Seattle Police. Stamper was recently on the Colbert Report and Stephen Colbert asked him what happened during the infamous Seattle WTO protests in 1999 under his leadership. “Well we gassed non-threatening, non-violent protesters,” replied the former Chief of police for Seattle Washington.
Of course while Norm Stamper was a cop, he didn’t realize that his actions, no matter how “justified” by the state, would be contributing to a hellish future police state. Stamper, like myself a 4 year veteran of the USMC, and most of those who serve, or have served the state in some way, are unable to think outside of the paradigm while simultaneously supporting it.
“Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service.” -Two time medal of honor recipient General Smedley Butler, USMC
Because Stamper is out of the paradigm, he can see clearer now. According to his website, he wants to:
End the Drug War… Drive Bigotry and Brutality Out of the Criminal Justice System… Honor the Constitution… Build Respect for Cops…
So far, Stamper has been quite outspoken against the police state of which he was once complicit in creating. In order to affect change more people like Stamper need to come out. If half of the officers that contacted the Free Thought Project spoke publicly about their concerns, we’d be in a much better place.
Unfortunately when officers do speak out against their own department they are met with horrid backlash from their peers.
The Free Thought Project is contacted regularly by police officers who know the system they uphold is completely corrupt, but they find it nearly impossible to call out the corruption.
Most recently an officer in Texas contacted us, who wanted to help prevent brutality and corruption. When we told him that speaking out and refusing to enforce immoral laws is how to change things, he replied by stating that he does refuse to arrest people for marijuana possession, but that he “fear(s) the repercussions by speaking out, simply because I do need a paycheck.”
When police fear the police, it is high time for change.
The overwhelming majority of police brutality cases stem from the war on drugs. When so many people are tasked with finding and prosecuting those in possession of a substance deemed illegal, the interactions become more frequent and less cordial. If we end that, we get the state out of the private lives of most individuals. This will only serve to lessen the scope of police harassment, in turn lessening the instance of brutality and killings.
The Free Thought Project is currently planning a world wide day of peaceful resistance to #End the Drug War.
We are also starting a Go Fund Me campaign to help support whistleblower police officers. With enough ‘good cops’ coming out against corruption in their departments, this would help to speed up the awakening process for Americans who still support the police state.
We’ve seen the change that one or two good cops can effect, imagine 100.
The time for peaceful action is now.
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Scientists are showing interest in studying vacuum energy further. This may lead to more discoveries and technological applications. It has recently been reported by Business Insider that vacuum energy may lead to the discovery of the graviton (as of now, a theoretical particle), and the elusive “theory of everything”:
It may be possible to draw energy from a vacuum using gravity, a theoretical physicist says. If researchers succeed in showing that this can happen, it could prove the long-postulated existence of the graviton, the particle of gravity, and perhaps bring scientists one step closer to developing a “theory of everything” that can explain how the universe works from its smallest to largest scales. The new research specifically found that it might be possible to show that gravitons do exist by using superconducting plates to measure a phenomenon with the esoteric name of “the gravitational Casimir effect.”…”The most exciting thing about these results is that they can be tested with current technology,” study author James Quach, a theoretical physicist at the University of Tokyo, told Live Science.
With so much unknown about vacuum energy, it is difficult to pin down exactly what, if anything, can be utilized from it’s discovery. If the most optimistic theories are correct, vacuum energy could provide the world with an infinite, clean, and incredibly powerful source of energy. The question is, what would mankind do with this type of power?
The vast amount of energy potentially available is only one aspect of this whole thing. The other aspect is the discoveries that would come from the utilization and study of vacuum energy. If scientists are able to observe gravitons and prove their existence, for example, it would greatly and exponentially increase their knowledge of how gravity works, not only on a macro scale but on a quantum scale as well. This means they would be one very large step closer to learning how to overcome gravitational effects. It is not outside the realm of possibility that this type of discovery could lead to weapons technology far more advanced than we can imagine in a relatively short amount of time.
Another thing to think about is the discovery of the “theory of everything”. If they are able to discover how to merge quantum field theory with general relativity, the implications are almost unpredictable.
So, Boeing just patented a force field. Technically, the patent is for a “method and system for shockwave attenuation via electromagnetic arc,” but that’s just a long way of writing out something unbelievably futuristic: protective force fields may one day make their way onto the battlefields of the future.
The concept uses a sensor to detect an explosion in water or air–say, an IED on the side of the road–then estimates the time and location of the explosion. Next, the signal from the sensor triggers a laser (or a blast of electricity or microwave energy) that heats up a section of air or water, creating a plasma shield in between the explosion and the vehicle. The plasma’s temperature and density help deflect and absorb the shockwaves from the explosion.
Welcome to the future…
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an idea that has oscillated through many hype cycles over many years, as scientists and sci-fi visionaries have declared the imminent arrival of thinking machines. But it seems we’re now at an actual tipping point. AI, expert systems, and business intelligence have been with us for decades, but this time the reality almost matches the rhetoric, driven by the exponential growth in technology capabilities (e.g., Moore’s Law), smarter analytics engines, and the surge in data.
“Data is increasingly tagged and categorized on the Web – as people upload and use data they are also contributing to annotation through their comments and digital footprints. This annotated data is greatly facilitating the training of machine learning algorithms without demanding that the machine-learning experts manually catalogue and index the world. Thanks to computers with massive parallelism, we can use the equivalent of crowdsourcing to learn which algorithms create better answers. For example, when IBM’s Watson computer played ‘Jeopardy!,’ the system used hundreds of scoring engines, and all the hypotheses were fed through the different engines and scored in parallel. It then weighted the algorithms that did a better job to provide a final answer with precision and confidence.”
“I initially thought that AI and machine learning would be great for augmenting the productivity of human quants. One of the things human quants do, that machine learning doesn’t do, is to understand what goes into a model and to make sense of it. That’s important for convincing managers to act on analytical insights. For example, an early analytics insight at Osco Pharmacy uncovered that people who bought beer also bought diapers. But because this insight was counter-intuitive and discovered by a machine, they didn’t do anything with it. But now companies have needs for greater productivity than human quants can address or fathom. They have models with 50,000 variables. These systems are moving from augmenting humans to automating decisions.”
As Moore’s Law marches on, we have more power in our smartphones than the most powerful supercomputers did 30 or 40 years ago. Ray Kurzweil has predicted that the computing power of a $4,000 computer will surpass that of a human brain in 2019 (20 quadrillion calculations per second). What does it all mean for the future of AI?
“AI historically was not ingrained in the technology structure. Now we’re able to build on top of ideas and infrastructure that didn’t exist before. We’ve gone through the change of Big Data. Now we’re adding machine learning. AI is not the be-all and end-all; it’s an embedded technology. It’s like taking an application and putting a brain into it, using machine learning. It’s the use of cognitive computing as part of an application.”
Manoj Saxena, former head of IBM’s Watson efforts and now a venture capitalist, believes that analytics is moving to the “cognitive cloud” where massive amounts of first- and third-party data will be fused to deliver real-time analysis and learning.
I’ve been tracking AI and expert systems for years. What is most striking now is its genuine integration as an important strategic accelerator of Big Data and analytics. Applications such as USAA’s Eva, healthcare systems using IBM’s Watson, and WayBlazer, among others, are having a huge impact and are showing the way to the next generation of AI.
Biohacking and transhumanist advances (including nootropics, extended longevity, cybernetic implants, better behavioral and genetic self-understanding) will materially advance our quality of life and productivity in the coming decade, but we need to be thoughtful about the potential social and ethical pitfalls as we transform. Google Trends shows a marked uptick in searches for “nootropics” and related biohacking fields, so now is the time to have the conversation about the direction we’re headed. Digital products and companies are not just changing the way we live our lives, but also playing larger and more influential roles in public policy and governance.
This trend of the technology industry driving broader social policy will perhaps be even greater with biohacking companies as their product innovations begin to alter and transform what it means to be human.
Biohacking is simply the next frontier in the drive to better ourselves. People will enhance themselves physically to have better bones, better eyes and better resilience to disease, as well as attain an overall better standard of living. More people will have access to their full potential. However from an ethics perspective, there’s already worrying concerns about the widening socio-economic gap around the world today; there’s an argument that when only the wealthy have access, it further separates the haves from the have-nots.
Forget passwords – Windows 10 will apparently let you login with a scan of your face. In other words, it will use biometric data to unlock your computer. Apart from a scan of your whole face, it will also reportedly allow you to login with a retinal scan as well as a read of your fingerprint(s). This feature will be known as Windows Hello.
From September (Shemitah Blood Moon Harbinger Prophetic Tribulation End Timing 9/28/2015) onwards, people who live in France will not be allowed to make payments of more than 1,000 euros ($1,060) in cash, down from 3,000 now. The cap for foreign visitors, left higher for reasons that include facilitating tourism, will be cut to 10,000 euros from 15,000.
Any cash deposit or withdrawal of more than 10,000 euros over a single month will be automatically signaled to the Tracfin anti-fraud and money laundering agency.
The authorities will have to be notified over transfers of more than 10,000 euros – for instance cheques, pre-paid cards or gold – by freight within the European Union.
Someone changing more than 1,000 euros in cash into another currency will have to show an identity card, down from a previous threshold of 8,000 euros.
The government will also increase controls on pre-paid cards and add mini-bank accounts to a national banking database.

To help solve this problem, the new error detection and correction process uses a system where several qubits are made to operate together to preserve the information. To achieve this, information is simultaneously stored across a number of qubits.
“… the idea is that we build this system of nine qubits, which can then look for errors,” said Kelly. “Qubits in the grid are responsible for safeguarding the information contained in their neighbors in a repetitive error detection and correction system that can protect the appropriate information and store it longer than any individual qubit can.”
So far, research has proven that it is capable of negating a “bit-flip” qubit error, but the team is hoping to next confront other qubit decoherence problems, such as the complementary “phase-flip,” error.
Senior researchers from the Martinis group have now also partnered with Google to further explore this technology and research in quantum computing applications.
The lure of quantum entangled computing is strong, as it can provide a means of impenetrable encryption — but the hardware has always been too bulky to make it practical. Now, though, researchers have shrunk the technology down to less than the width of a human hair, small enough to squeeze onto a chip.
Photon entanglement is one of the odder properties of quantum physics, but it promises a lot for computing — if one photon can instantly affect another no matter how far away it is, you could make super-speedy computers and communications that aren’t easily limited by physical distances. It hasn’t been easy to get entanglement tech down to a manageable size, however, and that’s where Italy’s Università degli Studi di Pavia might just come to the rescue. Its researchers have developed a tiny emitter that could pump out entangled photons as part of an otherwise ordinary silicon chip. The device, which uses a ring shape to both rope in and emit light, measures just 20 microns across. That’s hundreds of times smaller than existing devices, which are comparatively gigantic at a few millimeters wide.
You >>probably<< won’t see whole processors built around this technique, at least not for a while. Chip makers usually work on the nanometer scale — Intel’s new 14nm processors are far more intricate than this ring. Moreover, there’s some refinement left to make sure this part produces a reliable stream of tangled photons. If everything falls into place, however, you could see entanglement rings boosting performance in certain tasks. You might also see an entanglement-based component that handles jobs which aren’t otherwise possible, like spy-proof quantum cryptography. This breakthrough isn’t going to change semiconductors overnight, but it could make quantum computing more of a practical reality.
At the four-day Satellite 2015 conference, which kicked off on Monday, Boeing revealed to Reuters that tech firms like Apple, Google, Amazon and Facebook are looking to enlarge the Internet’s global footprint through the use of high-bandwidth satellites.
“The real key to being able to do these type of things is ultra high-throughput capabilities, where we’re looking at providing gigabytes, terrabytes, pedabytes of capability,” said Jim Simpson, vice president of business development and chief strategist for Boeing Network and Space Systems.
While Boeing declined to detail talks, the report mentions Apple as one of the few companies potentially engaging in the ongoing discussions.
Simpson said an obstacle to wide satellite communication adoption is end user cost. If prices are not reined in to something closer to terrestrial rates, customers are unlikely to sign up, which would leave participating tech companies with “a really high performance satellite.”
The inherent high cost of building and inserting a geosynchronous satellite into Earth orbit poses a risk to buyers, especially for tech companies that do not operate their own telecommunications infrastructure and are thus without an installed user base. Telcos, on the other hand, can amortize upfront costs through existing or new services.
Space Exploration Technologies, better known as SpaceX, currently has plans to launch a cheaper solution that involves 4,000 low Earth orbit satellites. Earlier this year, SpaceX announced it had landed $1 billion in funding from investors, including an injection from Google.
Scientists at Europe’s CERN research centre have had to postpone the imminent relaunch of their refitted ‘Big Bang’ machine, the Large Hadron Collider, because of a short-circuit in the wiring of one of the vital magnets.
‘Current indications suggest a delay of between a few days and several weeks,’ a statement from the world’s leading particle physics research centre said on Tuesday.
Engineers had been expected to start on Wednesday pumping proton beams in opposite directions all the way round the two 27-km (17-mile) underground tubes in the LHC, closed down for the past two years for a refit.
CERN scientists expressed disappointment at the last-minute problem, in just one of the underground machine’s eight sectors, which have been rewired and checked thoroughly during the closedown.
The so-called black holes that are believed to be present at the center of every galaxy is in fact ultra-intense magnetic field regions formed at the core of all large scale cosmic structures. Furthermore, the spin rate of any galaxy is proportional to the intensity of this magnetic field (what is believed to be black holes).
In other words, the cores of large scale cosmological structures can be considered as cosmic accelerators that can -in some cases- accelerate both charged and neutral particles to superluminal velocities far exceeding the so-called speed of light. Thus, the denser is the core of a galaxy, the stronger its magnetic field, the faster its rotation, the longer its spiral arms and the higher is the energy value and velocity of particles emitted from its core and spiral arms.
Scientists and legal experts have raised concerns that an ambitious experiment using a super-charged ion collider could accidentally destroy planet Earth.
One of the world’s most powerful particle accelerators, which is capable of generating particles hotter than four trillion degrees Celsius, has come under the spotlight after experts have warned that micro black holes and strange matter could be generated.
While the experiment could help to answer questions about how life started on Earth, critics, including the Astronomer Royal, have warned that subatomic particles called ‘strangelets’ could be created accidentally
These particles have the potential to start a chain reaction and change everything into ‘strange matter,’ which Martin Rees said could transform Earth into ‘an inert hyperdense sphere about one hundred metres across’.
With the upgrade, the RHIC will be able to generate collisions 20 times stronger than when it was originally built, prompting legal experts to question whether the facility also needs to perform a more thorough risk assessment.
Eric Johnson, Associate Professor of Law at the University of North Dakota and Michael Baram, Professor Emeritus at Boston University Law School wrote in a piece for the International Business Times that the facility should be re-evaluated for its potential to create a huge scale disaster that could wipe out life on Earth.
Since the RHIC was built, scientists have discovered the Higgs boson as well as quark-gluon plasma, which is not like anything that humans have ever known.
The two legal experts argue that same commission that has recently probed the cost of the U.S. Department of Energy’s labs, should also ‘take a sober look at one experimental programme that raises a bizarre and little-discussed prospect of destroying the entire planet.’
Scientists are worried that micro black holes and ‘strangelets’ could be created.
Strangelets are a hypothetical form of quark matter that in specific conditions could trigger a chain reaction to convert everything else to strange matter and destroy the planet.
Professors Baram and Johnson are particularly concerned that low energy experiments could boost the risk of creating strangelets and a recent report has shown that mini black holes can be generated from less energy than originally thought.
There were similar concerns when Cern’s LHC began its quest to find the ‘God particle,’ even though it is unlikely that stable black holes can be created by particle accelerators and even if they were, they could not suck in matter in a way that could threaten the planet, iO9 reported.
Moments ago, a Lufthansa Germanwings Airbus A320, flight 4U9525, on a Barcelona to Dusseldorf route, was reported to have crashed in the area of Digne, in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence in southern France, an area which French president Hollande said is “very difficult to access.” According to Plane Finder, the Germanwings plane, callsign D-AIPX, was a 24 year old A320 and part of the Germanwings fleet. Germanwings is a low-cost affiliate of German airline Lufthansa, which was created in 1997. Tuesday’s Airbus A320 crash has been the first accident in the history of Germanwings.
French Interior Minister is heading to the crash site, Le Monde reported. The information was also confirmed by the local authorities of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence.
According to initial press reports the plane had 142 passengers on board, with another 6 in the flight crew.
It appears the flight had sent out a distressed signal at 9:47 UTC, minutes before its final moments:
According to Sputnik.net, over 240 French firemen and 210 police officers are heading to the crash site. The flight was declared in distress at 10:47 local time near Barcelonnette, according to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
The wreckage of crashed Germanwings Airbus A320 is located at 6,500 feet in the mountains, the French Interior Ministry said.
“Right now we are at the cusp,” billionaire George Soros tells Bloomberg TV in this brief clip, the chances of Greece leaving the euro area are now 50-50 and the country could go “down the drain.” The 84-year-old fears that talks between Greece and ‘the institutions’ could “break down,” adding that “Greece is a long-festering problem that was mishandled from the beginning by all parties,” concluding that the chances of Greece leaving the euro area are now 50-50 and the country could go “down the drain.” Finally, Soros notes, what worries him the most is Ukraine..
Following January’s disastrous dive in Existing Home Sales (which must be weather, right? Nope!) to a SAAR 4.82 million homes, February (with its even worse weather) saw a 4th month of missed expectations with a 4.88mm print against 4.90 mm expectations. As always, weather was blamed – which is odd given that the only drop in sales that occurred happened in The Northeast which accounts for just 12% of total transactions. Perhaps more worrisome is NAR’s Larry Yun noting “unsuitable price levels” as a reason for weak sales due to low inventories (despite inventories rising 1.6% in February?!). May be it’s time to blame The Fed… for not creating more rich people to buy more houses…
Northeast sales fells 6.5% MoM, The West rose 5.7% MoM with the The Midwest flat and South up 1.9% MoM.
NAR’s Larry Yun explains…
“Severe below-freezing winter weather likely had an impact on sales as more moderate activity was observed in the Northeast and Midwest compared to other regions of the country.”
although February sales showed modest improvement, there’s been some stagnation in the market in recent months. “Insufficient supply appears to be hampering prospective buyers in several areas of the country and is hiking prices to near unsuitable levels,” he said. “Stronger price growth is a boon for homeowners looking to build additional equity, but it continues to be an obstacle for current buyers looking to close before rates rise.”
“Stronger price growth is a boon for homeowners looking to build additional equity, but it continues to be an obstacle for current buyers looking to close before rates rise.”
And begs The Fed to not raise rates…
“With all indications pointing to a rate increase from the Federal Reserve this year – perhaps as early as this summer – affordability concerns could heighten as home prices and rents both continue to exceed wages,”
January’s “optimistic” +0.13 print for CFNAI was revised drastically lower to -0.10 and now February prints -0.11 against an expectation of +0.10 for the 3rd miss in a row – the worst run since Q3 2011. The Chicago Fed National Activity Indicator (which has gained in prominence in recent months) indicates a 3rd month of “below trend growth,” for the first time since June 2011.
Things are going from bad to worse not only for the “Chinese growth is stable at 7%” but the “US is decoupling from the rest of the world” false narratives. But while we have been pounding the table on both for years, only last week did the Fed finally admit US growth was slowing down rapidly (and will slow down much more once the 0.3% Atlanta Fed GDP forecast becomes mainstream), but it is China that will be the wild card.
Overnight Bank of America finally acknowledged just this “wildcard” and not only cut its outlook on Chinese stocks to “neutral”, but had this to say:
Our recurrent theme is that most of the world is “old, indebted and unequal”. In our view this is a recipe for debt deflation and weak nominal earnings/economic growth. Proactive central banks figure this out early and fight the inevitable slowdown by implementing QE and weaker currencies. They grab the other guy’s pizza slice. Their asset markets soar. As Figure 5 shows, 70% of the world’s developed markets have inflation below 0.5% – almost as high as the depths of the 2008 financial crisis. So the USD8.6tn in central bank balance sheet expansion (from the Fed, ECB, BOE, BoJ, and PBoC, which amounts to 130% growth over Dec-07 to now) has been unable to get inflation going. Remember: most of the planet is Old, Indebted and Unequal – a recipe for slow nominal growth. That failure to ignite inflation is unlikely to stop central banks from trying QE/QE variants. Asset prices should be well supported by their (fruitless) endeavor wherever it is undertaken, like Japan and Europe currently. Emerging markets are not much better – as Figure 6 shows, about 70% have deflation in their PPIs. According to McKinsey, overall debt has increased by USD57tn in mid-2014 from USD142tn in 2007. China’s total debt has nearly quadrupled, rising to USD28tn by mid-2014, from USD7tn in 2007, fueled by real estate and shadow banking. Debt plus deflation is equal to debt deflation.
Back in the beginning of March, Søren Skou, the CEO of Maersk the world’s largest container-shipper warned that global trade is slowing down. Specifically, he said that global trade growth could slow this year from recent 4% growth rates, as Chinese, Brazilian and Russian economies disappoint.
“Growth from a historical perspective is quite sluggish. It has a huge impact for us as an industry… The economies in Europe are still very sluggish. Brazil, Russia and China: those three economies used to drive a lot of growth, and right now we are not really seeing that to the same extent. The only real bright spot is the US, and even the US is good but not great.”
Today we have proof just how accurate Skou was not only about the collapse in global trade in recent months, but that his call for the end of a US decoupling – something that only we called far in advance of the Atlanta Fed extrapolating a 0.3% Q1 GDP – was also spot on.
Presenting the latest data from the CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis, according to which in January world trade by volume dropped by a whopping 1.4% from December: the biggest drop since 2011!
All of this was further confirmed not only by the latest Chinese PMI data, but by every recent data release out of China.
But where things get really scary is not only when looking at global trade volume, which is sliding, but the actual value of trade calculated in USD. It is here that the real devastation for a world whose global reserve currency is still the USD, does the recent collapse in global trade as a result of the soaring value of the US dollar (for all the wrong reasons) become truly apparent.
As the chart below shows, not only did the USD value of trade in January drop to the lowest since late 2009/early 2010, but the annual rate of decline is once again, say it with us, the worst since Lehman.
However, none of the above should alarm anyone: remember – central banks can just print trade with just the flick of a CTRL-P switch.
Needless to say, as the two charts below confirm, this is merely the latest “worst since Lehman moment.” It is only fitting that the global market trades at all time highs to commemorate this.
So aside from all the rising prices, let’s talk deflation.
Following the first YoY deflation since 2009 in January, February’s CPI YoY data managed to scrape its way back to unchanged (very modestly better than the 0.1% drop expected). Consumer prices rose 0.2% MoM – the most since May 2014 with gas prices up MoM for the first time since June. So what is the narrative now: if tumbling gas prices didn’t get consumers to spend, rising gas costs will? Ex food and energy, prices rose 0.2% MoM (slightly hotter than the 0.1% rise expected) led by the shelter index (which increased 0.2 percent) accounting for about two-thirds of the monthly increase. The rent continues to be too damn high for most, and finally the BLS is starting to realize this.
MoM, Consumer prices have jumped from the worst drop since Lehman to the biggest jump since May 2014.
Back in January, we revealed that in lieu of QE, which is still on hiatus, the biggest buyer of stocks in 2015 will be corporations themselves, who at the start of the year Goldman estimated were poised to repurchase some $450 billion of their own shares (as “households” were on route to sell a near record $250 billion).
Subsequently, we reported that the reason for the relentless surge in the stock market in February following the ghastly January was none other than buybacks alone. In fact, run-rating the February buyback number which was just shy of $100 billion, one can easily state that the previous estimate of $450 billion in total 2015 buybacks will be woefully low. Sure enough, based on a revised estimate by Goldman, the vampire squid now expects companies to repuchase a record $604 billion in 2015, approaching the amount of total liquidity injection during the peak of the Fed’s QE.
The reason we bring this up is while it is clear to everyone by now that only stock buybacks remain as a bid for stocks (and as we further reported, tech company insiders are now selling record amounts of their personal shares to their own companies!), is that as Goldman revealed overnight, we are now entering a very dangerous period for stocks: the so-called buyback blackout period.
So, for those curious what the biggest threat to the S&P’s making new daily all time highs is, here is the explanation:
The majority of companies just entered the buyback blackout period leading into the 1Q earnings season, and high valuations in the absence of corporate demand may weigh on stock prices.
Buybacks remain a major source of demand for equity. We expect S&P 500 firms will boost repurchases by 18% to $604 billion in 2015. While roughly 70% of share repurchases are implemented via 10b5-1 programs, firms refrain from discretionary buybacks during the blackout periods that extend from roughly five weeks prior to earnings reports through 24-48 hours post-announcement. As volumes decline, market performance appears more vulnerable to the seasonality of buyback activity
Closing of the buyback window ahead of earnings season has recently coincided with weaker S&P 500 performance. In half of the last eight quarters, the S&P 500 declined during the four weeks prior to earnings season. The S&P 500 rose an average of 0.3% in the month leading up to earnings season versus +1.6% both during earnings season and in the month following earnings season.
How long is the weakness expected to persist? At least until the first week of May when the buybacks resume
So be very careful with those S&P 500 sell stops: they just may get triggered in the next 6 weeks.
As for will Goldman be doing? Why selling of course. How do we know this? Because it is telling the muppets to buy all it has to sell:
Investors should view any market pressure as a buying opportunity. High valuations in the absence of corporate demand may weigh on stock prices. However, we expect the market will climb to 2150 around mid-year 2015 ahead of the anticipated September Fed tightening and as corporate buyback activity resumes once earnings season ends.
The closure of the buyback window may lead to a more attractive entry point for investors interested in this strategy. Both GSTHCASH and GSTHREPO are more likely to outperform the market in the month following earnings. Seasonally, the hit rate of outperformance is highest in February, May, and August. We believe stocks with high total cash returns will outperform as S&P 500 firms grow buybacks and dividends by 18% and 7%, respectively, in 2015.
In particular, we recommend investors buy our basket of US stocks focused on returning cash to shareholders via buybacks and dividends.
And don’t worry: Goldman will have more than enough to sell to you, guaranteed.
Eleven trillion dollars: that’s how much of so-called Quantitative Easing the world’s central banks have done since the 2008 crisis. To put that in perspective, with eleven trillion dollars you could pay off pretty much all U.S. household debt – all mortgages, all car and student loans, credit cards – you name it.
So what did the global economy get for $11,000,000,000,000 in QE?
Following a post-recession pop, we got collapsing world trade growth, and that’s even with prices falling over the past three to four years.
Why is this happening?
It’s not because this time around things are different. To the contrary, the song remains the same.
For a long time, nearly four decades, growth has been getting progressively weaker during each recovery from recession. Of course, the U.S. is a major contributor to world trade and QE, but its trend of weaker growth is present in all major developed economies.
There are two key drivers behind this declining trend: demographics and lower productivity growth. Yes, it’s true that we’ve seen pretty good U.S. jobs growth recently, but that comes with productivity growth slamming down to zero.
Japan, with its “lost decades,” is at the leading edge of this long-term trend. But make no mistake, Europe, and as we see, even the U.S., are not far behind. Knowing this, will a trillion or so of more QE from the ECB make the trends in these charts turn and go the other way

UPDATE: The Senegal health minister who has a proven track record in containing Ebola is considering running for WHO’s top post. Let’s hope countries around the world support the bid of Awa Maria Coll Seck that elections are fair and that she doesn t end up in a plane crash like UN Chief Dag Hammarskjold or WHO official Glenn Thomas.
WHO’s top Ebola expert, Pierre Formenty, has given indirect evidence the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is a covert bioweapons attack. Formenty said teams in Conakry had seen patients pop up all over the city with no known link to other cases.
“This means there is one part of the epidemic that is hidden,” he wrote later in an internal trip report. “The Ebola outbreak could restart at any time.”

Stop epidemics before they begin? What exactly does Gates mean by that?
Does it mean we are to undergo mandatory experimental Ebola Mers, Sars, Birdflu and other vaccines, even when there is no epidemic? Is this what Gates means by stopping the epidemic through diagnostics, drugs and vaccines before it even begins?
In one fascinating passage, a discussion takes place of an encounter in a Canaanite mountain pass. We are told that Egyptian forces came across Shasu warriors, whose height from nose to foot varied from 4 to 5 cubits (http://www.reshafim.org.il/ad/egypt/texts/anastasi_i.htm). Egyptians often referred to the inhabitants of Canaan as the Shasu (http://members.bib-arch.org/publication.asp?PubID=BSBA&Volume=34&Issue=6&ArticleID=9). The cubit in view here is the Royal Egyptian cubit (about 20.65 inches in length). This would mean that the height of those encountered varied from at least 6 ft 8 in to 8 ft 6 in. This is particularly interesting when you consider that a main point in the letter regards the need for accuracy.
Similarly, there exists an Egyptian relief (stone carving) that recounts Egypt’s battles under Ramses II against the Hittites near Kadesh. In the relief, we are told about the capture of two Shasu spies. Historians have debated the unusual size given to the captured forces in the relief. It is one thing for Egyptian carvings to represent their Pharaohs with almost superhuman size. It is quite another for them to depict their enemies as such. Again, the Egyptians seem to be encountering forces of unusual height in their exploits in and around Canaan.
As far back as 2000 BC, Egypt’s religious leadership would engage in a peculiar and yet relevant practice for this discussion. They would inscribe the names of their enemies on statues, bowls or blocks of clay. They would then smash the objects in the hope of bringing about the named party’s defeat on the battlefield. Recovered fragments of these materials are referred to as the Execration Texts. A display in the Berlin Museum contains incantations against the “Iy Aneq.” The Egyptians appear to regard these people as being of great stature. It has been theorized that the Iy Aneq are the biblical Anakim—the very ones of who the Israeli spies said they were like grasshoppers in comparison (see Numbers 13:33).
The Bible mentions the existence of giants in a number of key places. The story of David’s confrontation with Goliath (I Samuel 17: 4) is but one example. Deuteronomy 3:11 tells us of Og, the King of Bashan. He was said to be the last of the Rephaim—a race of giants. Ishbi-Benob of II Samuel 21: 16 is another example. Giants and races of giants appear in numerous places throughout the Scriptures.
Could it be that ancient war accounts provide confirmation of the biblical record? It would seem so!
as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that
According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, Hermon means “Forbidden Place.” Jerome (4th-century translator of the Latin Vulgate Bible) interpreted Hermon as “anathema.” Mount Hermon was the port of entry for a group of wicked angels, who corrupted the human race in the days of Noah. Moses wrote: “The sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose …. There were giants in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown” (Gen. 6:1-4).
We have discussed these “Nephilim” in previous issues, but in this article, I want to add some things that you may not have heard before. For example, there is a rabbinical remark about this story in an ancient Jewish commentary, in which two rabbis add the following insight:
“Rabbi Jose says, following a tradition, that these [Nephilim] were Uzza and Azazel, whom, God deprived of their supernal sanctity. How, it may be asked, can they exist in this world? Rabbi Hiya answers, that they were of a class of spirits referred to in the words, ‘and birds which fly on the earth’ (Gen 1:20), and these, as we have said, appear to men in the form of human beings. If it is asked, how can they transform themselves? The answer is, that they do, in fact, transform themselves into all kinds of shapes, because when they come down from heaven they become as concrete as air and take human shape. These are Uzza and Azazel, who rebelled in heaven, and were cast down by God, and became corporeal on the earth and remained on it, not being able to divest themselves of their earthly form. Subsequently, they went astray after women, and up to this day they exist and teach men the arts of magic. They begat children whom they called Anakim (giants), while the Nephilim themselves were called ‘sons of God’” (Zohar, vol. 1, p. 186).
Note that one rabbi alluded to a class of spirits described as “birds” in Genesis 1:20. Perhaps this was the origin of the story that angels had bird-like wings. To this day, white Doves are symbolic of good, while black crows are typical of evil. It should also be noted that birds seem to have a reptilian connection. The Phoenix was depicted as an eagle in the West, but in the East, it was a winged dragon. From ancient lore, Satan was thought to be somewhat of a gargoyle with bat-like wings.
The apocryphal Book of Enoch enlarges upon the story of the Nephilim. First, let me give you a little background on this mysterious book. Scholars have traced its origin back past the first century: “In the early literature of the church there is a whole chain of evidence to this effect. Nearly all of the church [leaders] knew of an apocryphal Book of Enoch. Among the Apostolic [leaders], the Epistle of Barnabas refers to such a work. From that time on to about the seventh-century, Christian literature produces ample proof of the constant use and high standing of this book. The early theologians Justin Martyr, Clemens of Alexandria, Origen, Irenaeus, Tertullian, Eusebius, Jerome, Hilary, Epiphanius, Augustine, and others refer to and use it … following the example of Jude, whose citation is taken from Enoch 1:9. They all, with possibly the one dissenting voice of Tertullian, deny the canonicity of this book, and properly regard it as apocryphal; some going even so far as to deny the canonicity of Jude because he had dared to quote an apocryphal work” (George H. Schodde, Nov. 21, 1881, General Introduction to the Book of Enoch).
The following is quoted from the Book of Enoch:
“And it came to pass, after the children of men had increased in those days, beautiful and comely daughters were born to them.
“And the angels, the sons of the heavens, saw and lusted after them, and said one to another: ‘Behold, we will choose for ourselves wives from among the children of men, and will beget for ourselves children.’
“And they descended on Ardîs, which is the summit of Mount Hermon; and they called it Mount Hermon, because they had sworn on it and bound themselves mutually by a curse” (Enoch 6:1-6).
Of all places on this planet where angels could have descended, it was on the northern border of the Promised Land. Perhaps knowing something about God’s future plans to give territory to Abraham’s descendants, these angels plotted their strategy to introduce “the seed of the serpent” into the human race. Also, Mount Hermon lay in the territory where Ham and his family migrated after God’s judgment at the Tower of Babel. According to Genesis 10:6, Ham had four sons: “And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan” (Gen. 10:6).
Canaan settled in the area of Mount Hermon and southward into the territory that was to become Abraham’s Promised Land. This is why the Promised Land was called “Canaan” in the days of Moses and Joshua. Mizraim continued to move southward into Egypt. Coincidentally, Mount Hermon has three peaks, and Ham’s family encountered another set of “three peaks” that had been built before the Flood (those being three great pyramids). Evidently, Mizraim was fascinated by the pyramids and developed a system of worship based on those ancient structures. Cush and Phut continued the family migration southward and settled in Ethiopia and parts of Southern Africa.
To this day, Mount Hermon is still the place where evil continually rains down upon Israel. It is the area of the Syrians, and Hezbollah. The Book of Enoch continues:
“And they took unto themselves wives, and each chose for himself one, and they began to go in to them, and mixed with them, and taught them charms and conjurations, and made them acquainted with the cutting of roots and of woods. And they became pregnant and brought forth great giants whose stature was three thousand ells. These devoured all the acquisitions of mankind till men were unable to sustain themselves. And the giants turned themselves against mankind in order to devour them” (Enoch 7:1-4).
It seems that these fallen angels (the Nephilim) contaminated almost all life on earth. We do not know how many people were contaminated, but we are told that at least Noah’s family remained genetically pure. For that reason, God destroyed the world with a Flood. Had it not been for Noah and his three sons, those fallen angels might have brought an end to all life on the planet. Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth helped save the animals and repopulate the earth.
God Judged the Angels
Both Peter and Jude added further insight about these fallen angels. Peter said, “God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; and spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly” (II Peter 2:4,5).
Jude put it this way: “The angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day” (Jude 6).
Both passages tell of severe punishment upon the Nephilim. Yet, Moses said that “sons of God” reappeared after the Flood (Gen. 6:4). How can this be? Well, the Book of Enoch only mentioned 200 angels, and Satan was not among them. Bear in mind, Satan’s forces were much larger then a mere 200. Perhaps the original group of Nephilim were scouts for a much larger force of demonic angels who, under the leadership of Satan, came to earth after the Flood. It seems to me that the Tower of Babel (meaning “Gate to God”) may have been built in an effort to contact these dark forces and forge a defense against the threat of another judgment. As noted in the Zohar (above) Rabbi Hiya said, “… to this day they exist and teach men the arts of magic.”
As noted above, Genesis 6:4 adds, “… and after that” — meaning that more Nephilim returned to this area after the Flood and established what Joshua called the “land of giants.” Moses and Joshua conquered those giants, of whom, Og was king. Moses wrote that Og’s bed was almost 15 feet long! (Deut. 3:11-13). Og reigned in Mount Hermon. Joshua wrote:
“And the coast of Og king of Bashan, which was of the remnant of the giants, that dwelt at Ashtaroth and at Edrei,
“And reigned in mount Hermon, and in Salcah, and in all Bashan, unto the border of the Geshurites and the Maachathites, and half Gilead, the border of Sihon king of Heshbon.
“Them did Moses the servant of the LORD and the children of Israel smite” (Joshua 12:4-6).
The tribe of Dan moved to this area during the days of the Judges, and adopted the Canaanite worship of these angels. It was an ancient idolatry that opposed the worship of Jehovah. In fact, Baal and Ashtaroth were Canaanite deities, whose origin was Mount Hermon! The book of Judges even calls Mount Hermon “Baalhermon,” saying:
“Namely, five lords of the Philistines, and all the Canaanites, and the Sidonians, and the Hivites that dwelt in mount Lebanon, from mount Baalhermon unto the entering in of Hamath” (Judges 3:3).
Furthermore, the fallen angels living on and around Mount Hermon adopted a biblical name for the mountain. They had the audacity to plagiarize a name that God had given to Mount Moriah — Mount Sion! Moses wrote:
“And they possessed his [Sihon’s] land, and the land of Og king of Bashan, two kings of the Amorites, which were on this side Jordan toward the sun rising; From Aroer, which is by the bank of the river Arnon, even unto Mount Sion, which is Hermon” (Deut. 4:47,48).
Sion means “lofty,” whereas, Zion means “stronghold.” It is evident that Satan was pushing for a counterfeit of God’s plan for man’s redemption. The devil was determined to replace the “seed” of the woman with the “seed” of the serpent.
In a book entitled, The Gods of the Lodge, author Reginald C. Haupt, Jr., described what he found during his trip to Mount Hermon:
“In the excavations of Baalbek, renamed Heliopolis by the Greeks, temples were uncovered honoring Baal and Bachus. The same is true of the site at Sidon. The Temple there is named the Temple of Baal of Sidon. But by far, of greater importance was the temple of Baal found on Mt. Hermon. Perhaps it would be more meaningful to you if I [Reginald Haupt] quote direct from my source. In the 1982 edition of the Thompson Chain Reference Bible (Fourth Improved Edition), the archaeological supplement was provided by G. Fredrick Owen, D.D., Ed.D. Dr. Owen wrote on page 376 of his supplement the following: “Mount Hermon, the ‘chief’ of the mountains of Palestine is five miles wide and twenty miles long. It has three peaks, the tallest of which is 9,166 feet above the Mediterranean Sea. For centuries before Abraham’s time, the mountain had been venerated in connection with Baal.
“Baal worship was the leading religion of Canaan. On most of the high peaks of the country were shrines known as ‘high places,’ the higher the holier. Here groves were planted and shrines erected for worship. Since Mount Hermon towered above all the other mountains in the region, it was the chief high place, the shrine of shrines. Canaanites looked to Mount Hermon much as the Moslems face Mecca when they pray.
“During the summer of 1934, Dr. Stewart Crawford and this writer [Reginald Haupt] led a small expedition, in which we studied the ancient Baal shrines surrounding Mount Hermon. We located many ruins and in each case the shrine was so oriented that when the priests and the devotees were at the altar, they faced the chief Baal sanctuary, or Quibla, located on the highest of the three peaks of Hermon.
“We then ascended the mountain and found the ruined temple of Baal, constructed of Herodian masonry, which dated it to just previous to and during the early Christian era. In a low place near the northwest corner of the temple, we excavated and found loads of ash and burnt bone, which had been dumped there as a refuse from sacrifices” (Reginald C. Haupt, Jr., The Gods of the Lodge, p. 126).
During the ministry of Jesus, He and His disciples visited Caesarea Philippi (see photo) where the Jordan River springs forth from the slopes of Mount Hermon. In the photo, one can see the grotto and cave where Baal worship was in full swing. While observing these shrines, Jesus posed the question: “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” (Matt. 16:13). Jesus was standing in the territory of His great enemy, Satan, and his idolatrous Nephilim. It was the area out of which the Antichrist would arise.
The French Connection
In 1666, Louis XIV of France, authorized the building of an observatory in Paris to measure longitude. This was the beginning of the Paris Zero Meridian. Believe it or not, according to the “Paris Zero Meridian” Mount Hermon (and the ancient territory of Dan) is located at 33 degrees east of the Paris Zero Meridian (longitude), and 33 degrees north of the Equator (latitude)! The 33rd degree became an important part of Freemasonry, probably due to a history that dates back to the Knights Templar, the French Merovingian Dynasty, and their family ties to the Danites (see our chapter on Dan in Guardians of the Grail).
However, the British would not be outdone. In 1675, England’s first Astronomer Royal, Sir Flamsteed, established a Prime Meridian in London to rival the one in Paris. In 1725, Edmund Halley, the second Astronomer Royal, established a second Meridian. In the mid-18th century, another Astronomer Royal, James Bradley, established a third. And in 1851, another Astronomer Royal, Sir George Airy, set up new measuring equipment in a room alongside Bradley’s original equipment (just 19 feet away), which eventually became the basis for international time.
It soon became clear that the world needed to adopt a worldwide standard for the Zero Meridian, so in 1884, 25 countries met in Washington, DC, and voted to accept Airy’s meridian at London’s Greenwich Observatory as the Prime Meridian. France abstained from the vote. The French held to the Paris Zero Meridian as a rival to Greenwich until 1911 for timekeeping purposes and 1914 for navigation. To this day, French cartographers continue to indicate the Paris Meridian on some maps.
In the opening years of the twentieth century, a booklet appeared in Russia by the title, “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Sion.” It was touted as the exposure of a Jewish plot to rule the world. However, its Masonic connection is obvious. The booklet ends with the statement: “Signed by the representatives of Sion of the 33rd Degree” (Michael Baigent, Holy Blood Holy Grail, p. 193).
Note that the name “Sion” is spelled with an “S” rather than a “Z.” The connection with Mount Hermon is obvious.
The Tribe of Dan
Jacob prophesied that Dan would be “a serpent by the way, an adder in the path” (Gen. 49:17), and Moses prophesied, “Dan is a lion’s whelp: he shall leap from Bashan” (Deut. 33:22). These two prophecies are remarkable, in that they connect Dan with the “seed of the serpent,” from which the Antichrist will emerge to claim the title “lion of Judah.”
In the book of Judges the Danites relocated to the northern reaches of the Promised Land. They settled at the foot of Mount Hermon in the territory of Bashan, and adopted the idolatrous Canaanite religion of Baal and Ashtaroth. Eventually, they left for parts unknown and became the proverbial “Lost Tribe.”
However, the Danaans (i.e., Spartans) of the Greece, established the same religious practices that the Danites had developed on Mount Hermon. Greek Mythology is an elaborate reinvention of the Danite religion. The Spartans invented a “messenger of the gods” and called him Hermes (a variation of Hermon), whom the Romans called Mercury.
Supposedly, Hermes had a son named Pan. The name “Pan” could be a corruption of the name “Dan.” Today, the Arabs call Caesarea Philippi “Banias,” but that is because there is no “P” sound in Arabic. The older form was “Paneas” (meaning “city of Pan”) from “Paneion.” The name comes from Pan, the pagan god who was worshiped there. Niches for Pan’s statues can still be seen. Observe the niches and cave/grotto in the photo. In 4 B.C., this area became the tetrarchy of Herod’s son Philippus, who renamed Paneas as Caesarea Philippi. This name continued until the reign of Nero.
The name Pan means “All things, all gods, or all life.” Therefore, when the Romans built a domed temple to commemorate all their gods, they named it the “Pantheon.” It is a combination of two root words, “Pan,” standing for the son of Hermes (Mercury) and “theo” meaning “gods.” It is clear that Mount Hermon, with its infamous “fallen angels” found its way into the mythologies of many ancient cultures.
Solomon also had something remarkable to say about Mount Hermon:
“Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions’ dens, from the mountains of the leopards” (Song of Solomon 4:8).
Here, Solomon mentioned a “lion’s den” and “the mountains of the leopards.” This may be a reference to the prophecy made by Moses, calling Dan a “lion’s whelp” (Deut. 33:22). It seems that Solomon was aware of the Danite connection to Mount Hermon and used the metaphor of the Danite “lion’s den.” When the Danites first arrived in Northern Israel, they conquered the village of Laish (meaning “lion”) and renamed it “Dan.” The book of Judges reports:
“And they called the name of the city Dan, after the name of Dan their father, who was born unto Israel: howbeit the name of the city was Laish at the first” (Judges 18:29).
Furthermore, Solomon mentioned Mount Hermon in connection with “leopards.” It is said that Ham’s grandson, Nimrod, wore a leopard skin as a symbol of his kingship. Also, there are paintings of Egyptian Pharaohs adorned with leopard skins. Even some medieval European royals wore leopard skins. An ancient Jewish commentary connected Nimrod’s leopard skins with the coats of skin belonging to Adam and Eve:
“Truly he was a man of might, because he was clad in the garments of Adam, and was able by means of them to lay snares for mankind and beguile them. Rabbi Eleazar said: ‘Nimrod used to entice people into idolatrous worship by means of those garments, which enabled him to conquer the world and proclaim himself its ruler, so that mankind offered him worship. He was called Nimrod for the reason that he rebelled against the most high King above, against the higher angels and against the lower angels.’
“Rabbi Simeon said: ‘Our colleagues are acquainted with a profound mystery concerning these garments.’” (Zohar, vol. 1, p. 250). In Daniel 7 and Revelation 13, the Antichrist seems to be connected to the metaphoric leopard.
We cannot say with certainty that Adam and Eve wore leopard skins, but there are a number of sources that suggest Nimrod wore a leopard skin. Among them was Alexander Hislop, in his work, The Two Babylons:
“This custom of taming the leopard, and pressing it into the service of man in this way, is traced up to the earliest times of primitive antiquity. In the works of Sir William Jones, we find it stated from the Persian legends, that Hoshang (i.e., Nimrod), the father of Tahmurs, who built Babylon, was the ‘first who bred dogs and leopards for hunting.’ As Tahmurs, who built Babylon, could be none other than Nimrod, this legend only attributes to his father what, as his name imports, he got the fame of doing himself.
“Now, as the classic god bearing the lion’s skin is recognized by that sign as Hercules, the slayer of the Nemean lion, so in like manner, the god clothed in the leopard’s skin would naturally be marked out as Nimrod, the “leopard-subduer.” That this leopard skin, as appertaining to the Egyptian god, was no occasional thing, we have clearest evidence.
“Wilkinson tells us, that on all high occasions when the Egyptian high priest was called to officiate, it was indispensable that he should do so wearing, as his robe of office, the leopard’s skin.
“As it is a universal principle in all idolatries that the high priest wears the insignia of the god he serves, this indicates the importance which the spotted skin must have had attached to it as a symbol of the god himself” (Alexander Hislop, The Two Babylons).
The Danite Antichrist
In other articles, we have covered the teaching of the early church theologians, Irenaeus and Hippolytus, who said that the Antichrist would come from the tribe of Dan, based upon Jeremiah 8:16: “The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones.” We discussed the fact that the Greek king, Alexander the Great, claimed to be born of the “seed of the serpent.” And we have discussed the possibility that the Roman Emperor Nero could have descended from the Danites. Well, when Nero ruled the Roman Empire, he renamed Caesarea Philippi in honor of himself. For a while, the site of the ancient Danite city was called “Neronias” (mean- ing “city of Nero”) (Encyclopedia Judaica, “Banias,” p. 162).
Finally, an ancient Jewish Midrash likens Samson to their expected messiah, saying, “Samson in some respects was considered a forerunner of the Messiah who will come from Judah but his mother, according to the Midrash will be of the tribe of Dan” (Yair Davidy, “Dan”).
Amazing! The Jews are looking for a Messiah whose father is from the royal family of Judah, but whose mother will be from the tribe of Dan!
Those fallen angels who descended to Mount Hermon introduced the “seed of the serpent” into the human race. Evidently, after the Flood, they consorted with members of the tribe of Dan, mixing the “seed of the serpent” into the human genome once again. The first time it happened, God judged the world with water. The next time, it will be by fire.”
…imagine if you refuse to have your DNA altered by a mandatory vaccination do to an engineered global pandemic, and consider the sudden new call for reporting bank deposits etc… in combination with a post 911 WMD event global war security condition that collapses the market that is now set to fall. The Antichrist NWO occult elite have already told you what they ”want” to do. Their prophetic ”City of Babylon” scenario is already in place for depopulation through war and pestilence(s). They have been lying about everything but their global intent to establish their Antichrist New World Order Mark Of The Beast system of control through the chaos by which they have entombed the world within the short measure of time they are given in these last days. By the time the last Blood Moon of 2015 marks the end of 6000 years to the day back to Adam on the 28th of this September, it will be obvious that the last 3 1/2 years of the tribulation has begun with each following day there after. It should be apparent to every Saint sealed in agreement with Christ now that this is the case, and the fact that something like a vaccine induced Antichrist NWO 666 ”change” of human DNA would render all those that accept the mark of the beast system as corrupted and eternal condemned humans is not only possible but is certainly a prophetic eventuality related to the buying selling and trading description of the mark of the beast in the scriptures. The fact that they have already established humans with the DNA of two women and one man, three people to make up one Antichrist New World Order person, along with their human animal lab created living chimera confirms that humanity is already being ”changed”. The fact that the Antichrist New World Order masonic occult elite, that do council with the fallen angels, and their demon offspring whom they do council with; the ones that ”know their time is short, is confirmed even by their occult Antichrist New World Order prophecy on their global Fiat PetroDebtDollar world Reserve Currency is clear evidence of their ”knowledge” and ”common cause”. Even Petrus Romanus and the Mount Graham Lucifer project confirms their occult ”secret” agenda, which they have express thusly in the video link below…
In conclusion, if you are reading this site, and the links on it, and somehow you still have not accepted our Father in Christ, the coming events and time of tribulation about to be unleashed upon this prophetic last generation are about to fulfill all the prophecies that confirm the last days and time of tribulation. Good news for you, if you don’t die before you realize that you are a Saint in Christ because of you blindness or hardened heart, because if, during the tribulation, you reject the Antichrist offer, be it idiot Antichrist Islam etc… and all the pathetic claims of false religious institutions, be they nutty magic underwear nutballs that baptize the dead, like Mormon morons, or Catholic dipshits that baptize innocent babies and call their priests and Petrus Romanus Pope ”Father”, lol, you shall have the opportunity to realize The Truth of our Father in Christ under the prophetic conditions of tribulation as the prophecies are fulfilled.
Now would be a better time though. Lol.
Your salvation has nothing to do with some idiot worldly Jewish Muslim Hindi Buhdist or secularized version of our Father in Christ. It’s not about ”them” or ”you”, it’s about our Father in Christ and his personal love for you and all His Saints among the nations and Israel. If you don’t at least consider this message, and the offer of your eternal salvation now, especially after looking upon the links on this site, with an analytical mind and heart that is open to the discovery of The Truth of our Father in Christ, …well that’s really dumb of you. Lol. Just know that the effort put into posting links was, and has been, and continues to be, done with the intent to make it easy for you (and everyone on the planet) to do so. Free of charge too. It’s a gift, but truly the effort is the result of being compelled by the love of our Father in Christ.
If you are offended by The Truth of our Father in Christ, to the degree that you are not able to look past any and all distinctions that are an affront to you Antichrist state, if you are still in doubt or holding on to your current Antichrist conviction(s) what ever that is, consider this. The effort here has risen from a once atheist non believing dipshit that never read the Bible and absolutely abhorred anything to do with any and all religious claims. Lol.
P.S. If you have been reading the links as an idiot Antichrist still, lol, and you didn’t at least make some money reading the BTFD information, wow, that would confirm not only is your heart lost but your brain is too. Lol. Not that making gains is recommend at this point, because it only feeds the self devouring Antichrist NWO 666 Whores and the beast they ride. Anyway, lol, don’t forget to at least laugh, and, by the way, miracles do happen to the worst of us. Just ask the thief on the cross, next to Christ.
In the name of our Father in Christ fear not. Stand fast and do no harm.
…shaving everyday in a world of ….wait for it …wait for it ….shhhhaving cream, is like living a constant prayer. Hair grows, the blade flows, and the …wait for it …shhhhaving cream goes down the drain.
So keep the proverbial(s) at bay. Have a nice day, and let the world see the sweet smile of grace upon your face. Lol.
