today I would muse about a few things I believe are terribly important, for there seems a shift showing itself in dramatic fashion unseen since the 2008 financial meltdown. Not only are some key players, or institutions beginning to notice some troubling signs; but rather; those very signs that everyone was told ‘won’t or shouldn’t happen’, not only are, they’re starting to rear their ugly heads in much greater frequency. Just today alone served up a near bonanza of “wait…what?” statements or revelations from many of the most fervent “everything is awesome” cheerleaders over the years.
Something is amiss within the “cheer-leading” cartel. I believe they themselves are beginning to realize what people like myself and a few others have been saying: “Once the residual effects since the ending of QE are no longer present, the realization and picture of what truly is the fundamental economy will become ever and ever clearer.”
And here is what has been transpiring within the last 24 and 48 hours or so.
And as if that’s not enough here’s more: “EUR USD cross up 300 pips in last 24hrs, Dollars Biggest Drop In 2 Years”
But as they say on TV “But wait! There’s more!!!
Suddenly none other than Goldman Sachs™ themselves is warning: “By Almost Every Measure Stocks Are Overvalued”
And even Robert Shiller: “Unlike 1929 This Time Everything….”
Let me remind you, In the last 24 to 48 hours or so the above suddenly began appearing. (rapidly in both volume as well as frequency) They are far from the only one’s but they show a change in the air that was near unheard of just 6 months ago – let alone the last few years. Take from it what you will however, what you shouldn’t do is ignore it .This is (in my opinion) a sea change from what has been the meme of the financial media, as well as world since the early part of the recession in 2009.
For a little more light or clarity let me expand with this:
Back in November of last year I was taken to task by some when I penned the article “Why Tony Robbins Is Asking The Wrong Questions”
This was when Tony (I’m using the personal only for ease) just released his first book in twenty years and it was aimed squarely at investing. And being in the motivation industry myself as well as enough intellectual property out on the web to back up my thoughts on the matter, I believed then as I do now, I had the standing and took some of the suppositions made to task. Many of the overarching themes were pointing to Index investing, diversification, and others. Here’s what I said in relation to these:
“The true myth is that what is actually in the index as a business, its economic makeup, its validity as a true business, or anything else that we once understood as what a business “is.” Is – no longer and doesn’t mean squat.
The only “is” that now matters is this : Is – the index one that has a bulls-eye that the Central Banks deem important? i.e., they will buy it directly or fund its purchase via their proxies. Period.”
“The idea of “diversification” is a great sounding idea in principle and theory. However, it is one of the greatest myths when it comes to protecting one’s assets in today’s financial market place aka Wall Street.
During the financial crisis of 2008 when the markets were in a free-fall and panic was ensuing “a diversified portfolio” did little if anything to help stem the tide. As a matter of fact, many found the “diversification” side of their portfolio which was to help “protect” not only fell just as far in value, but the ability of many to even remain solvent going forward was questioned.”
On – and more:
“The markets for all intents and purposes are no longer for the “average” person looking to make gains in any form today. What is needed now more than ever is a direct understanding that safety – safety above all else – is paramount. And exactly how one can achieve it. Or get as close to the proverbial “cash in the mattress” understanding of it as humanly possible.”
Since then the market which was at the time of his release on fire, and just throwing darts blindfolded to pick an index to “invest” in was yielding double-digit gains per year. And sometimes per month! It’s been a straight up rocket ship since 2010 and the implementation of QE. Unseen in tenacity as well as the sheer absence of even a mild pullback of over 5%. A stock market that has tripled and hasn’t had a correction of note once in years! Absolutely stunning. Until – (maybe you guessed it) November of last year. The same time the book came out QE ended. And guess what? I’m guessing you did, but here’s a chart for some clarity with notations I made. I think they’re crucial to the narrative.
Just for some context: It took approximately only 14 days to drop that 5%, and was so discerning to the Federal Reserve, St.Louis Fed. President James Bullard took to the airwaves quelling the “panic attack” with the soothing words that QE4 wouldn’t be a bad idea.
In comparison: It has now taken a good 6 months to move only 2% higher than those November prints. And we’re faltering more routinely with drops and pops serving only to bring many 200 or 300 point swings in the Dow or the same in relativity in the S&P to end the roller-coaster days – to near unchanged.
The only difference since then? Outright QE has since been shelved. (just to be clear, they ended in that November) Before the ending of QE? We were doing comparable 2% up moves with no fall backs for nearly 4 years continuous. But now? _____________________(insert crickets here) And so is the same for those that were touting this market was rising on fundamentals. They too are now saying the same as the crickets when it comes to fundamentals.
Now all the so-called “smart crowd are hoping for is that the narrative of “bad is good, and worse is fantastic!” still applies. However, if you watch or read a lot of what they’re expressing today – even they no longer feel confident which way the Fed. will interpret the data. For the Fed. itself has muddied their supposed “clarifying” policy intentions so much – bad can go from good, to whatever faster than the blink or wink of a Fed. officials eye. Not only thoroughly confusing the financial press, but even more so – the High Frequency Trading machines. Just better hope your index (or 401K holdings) are on the right side of what the HFT vacuum tubes interprets what the FOMC thinks the meaning of “is” Is. Just saying.
But there’s no need to take my word for it. None other than Carl Icahn himself is now expressing outright warnings and concerns.
And if all the above isn’t enough to draw attention that there is some real concern to watch for I’ll leave you with this last headline and link that puts it all in prospective in my opinion…
None other than Jeremy Siegel felt the need to explain: “No Way There’s A Bubble, No Signs of Recession”
As I said earlier. All this in the last 24 to 48 hours. I believe even though many of us may see the bigger picture, it might also be prudent to not only pay even closer attention, but possibly get the binoculars and microscopes out. After all I didn’t even mention Greece, the EU, China or Russia. But the week is young…No?
A new internet rumour that Pope Francis is about disclose information that they are preparing for Alien contact on the 15 June 2015. But is this really true? Well according to Daniel P. Sheehan, a Harvard College trained American Government & Foreign Policy Scholar, we are about to receive announcement about the ET presence very soon. via Ghost Diaries Sheehan, who was one of the main speakers at this weekend Ufology conference ‘Contact In The Desert’ held last weekend at Joshua Tree, California US, has made some pretty fantastic statements.
According to Daniel Sheehan, the Catholic Church is now actively preparing for the discovery of Alien contact with highly a advanced alien species. Speaking at contact in the desert, he told of a what will be a historic papal encyclical decree calling for nothing less than the disassembly of the power structures that are destroying our civilisation and preventing us from joining an enlightened galactic community.Pope Francis previously caused quite a stir last year when he announced that he would baptise Aliens, quite a statement and a timely one at that given the fact the Vatican owns the biggest telescope on the planet.Former Minsitry Of Defence Nick Pope Told Neon Nettle: “It’s no secret that the Catholic Church has been repositioning themselves on this issue over the past few years. Do they know something? I doubt it. I think they’re just trying to ensure that if the scientific community announces the discovery of extraterrestrial life, the church is prepared.”
Sheehan’s talk began with a summary of his previous work as an advocate for alien disclosure which, he says, also included classified sections from Project Bluebook (a study into UFO’s by the American airforce). He went on to say that his access to Bluebook gave him exposure to photographic evidence of crashes UFO’s that had Alien symbols on them..
Sheehan also described why Pope Francis wants to avoid the magnitude of chaos that took over the catholic church when Galileo announced that earth was not the center of the Universe. He continued that Pope Francis wants to position the Catholic church and the jesuit order to be able to accept major shift in human consciousness a result of Alien existance as well as the evolution of a 6th faculty of human consciousness. The 6th faculty will constitute a new form of religion and contact between humans and advanced telepathic aliens.So in a nutshell? Well, from what Sheehan had just described, it looks like the largest single religious denomination on Earth is now mobilising for the disclosure of Antichrist E.T’ Fallen Angels. If that is indeed the case, then it’s pretty damn exiting.
Anbar provincial council chief Sabah Karhout said Antichrist ISIS “closed all the gates” at a dam in Ramadi, capital of Iraq’s largest province. The move lowered the level of the Euphrates River and cut water supplies to the areas of Khaldiyah and Habbaniyah to the east, which are some of the last held by pro-government forces in Anbar. The lower water level has also made it easier for Antichrist ISIS to carry out attacks, Karhout said. He called for the dam to either be quickly retaken or targeted in an air strike.
And the sixth messenger did sound, and I heard a voice out of the four horns of the altar of gold that is before God,
14 saying to the sixth messenger who had the trumpet, `Loose the four messengers who are bound at the great river Euphrates;’
15 and loosed were the four messengers, who have been made ready for the hour, and day, and month, and year, that they may kill the third of men;
And the sixth messenger did pour out his vial upon the great river, the Euphrates, and dried up was its water, that the way of the kings who are from the rising of the sun may be made ready; 13 and I saw [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs —
14 for they are spirits of demons, doing signs — which go forth unto the kings of the earth, and of the whole world, to bring them together to the battle of that great day of God the Almighty; –.
In the fall of 1910, under the pretense of a duck hunting trip, a group of powerful bankers, political figures, and businessmen met at Jekyll Island, GA to plan the creation of a central bank for the United States. The “game” that this elite group of “hunters” brought back to their ivory towers of Lower Manhattan and Capitol Hill was the blueprint for one of the most destructive financial institutions in modern history, the Federal Reserve.
One-hundred years later, another group of powerful bankers, political figures, and businessmen have converged to promote a cashless society, an economic system that would compel every man, woman, and child to utilize proprietary, government-monitored electronic systems to make purchases of any kind. This group, which calls itself the Better Than Cash Alliance, is as dangerous as the group of “outdoor enthusiasts” that met at Jekyll Island that fateful early-20th Century November.
And, just like the Jekyll Island group sold their grand plans based on a lie (they claimed that the Fed would guarantee liquidity in times of financial panics), the Better Than Cash Alliance is selling the idea of a cashless society based on the farce that eliminating cash would stimulate entrepreneurship among the poor. In reality, the elimination of cash would reduce a great many opportunities for entrepreneurship for people of few means. Gone would be the informal businesses the working poor often operate: roadside produce stands, street performances, handicraft tables, and day labor. Contrary to the assertions of the BTCA, a cash-free society would limit entrepreneurship to those with the means to incorporate a business, afford the proprietary system required to accept payments, and understand the local, state, and federal tax burden the payment system would create.
Although they won’t admit it, the 12 central governments that currently support the BTCA (the U.S. is one of them) do so because a cashless society would enable them to track and tax every purchase made with sovereign currency within their borders. In addition to producing new government revenue streams, the payment systems would increase governments’ social engineering capabilities: They would compel consumers to purchase goods and services from tax-paying, licensed organizations. Freelance service providers such as barbers, music teachers, and tutors would be forced to either jump through the hoops of incorporation or seek work with licensed businesses (which would inevitably take a cut of their earnings and subject the remainder to payroll taxes). The black market would also be squeezed, escalating the War on Drugs, and subjecting every “sin” and self-defense purchase to government scrutiny. Under the guise of “national security”, of course.
A number of financial institutions, including, but not limited to, Citi, Visa, and MasterCard, support the BTCA, for obvious reasons. In a cash-free world, these institutions would not only make profits on the front end by selling electronic payment devices and charging a fee for every transaction, but they would also make money on the back end by compelling everyone to deposit all of their earnings and cash holdings into their coffers. The BTCA claims that a cashless society would enable the poor to “participate in the financial system”. In reality, it would compel everyone to patronize banks. And, while a cashless society would be a windfall for the banking industry, it would place a heavy burden on the elderly, who often hold large amounts of cash and are hesitant (and, in some cases, incapable) of making electronic financial transactions. Among the numerous social problems the BTCA’s plan for cashless society would create, incidences of elder abuse would certainly increase.
Inevitably, some people would find a way to circumvent a government-mandated electronic payment system, at least for some purchases. Some would find ways to barter or use non-government-issued crypto or de facto currencies. (Interestingly, some black market circles use liquid Tide laundry detergent as a currency.) For some, the elimination of cash would have little material effect on their lives. But, for most, the BTCA’s agenda is a tremendous threat to their individual and economic liberties.
Like the Jekyll Island duck hunters, the Better Than Cash Alliance is a cabal of powerful people who are pushing a dangerous agenda that would harm average Americans while increasing the elite group’s power over them. Like Georgia mallards, the BTCA’s plans must be shot down.
and it doth great signs, that fire also it may make to come down from the heaven to the earth before men, 14 and it leadeth astray those dwelling on the land, because of the signs that were given it to do before the beast, saying to those dwelling upon the land to make an image to the beast that hath the stroke of the sword and did live, 15 and there was given to it to give a spirit to the image of the beast, that also the image of the beast may speak, and [that] it may cause as many as shall not bow before the image of the beast, that they may be killed.
16 And it maketh all, the small, and the great, and the rich, and the poor, and the freemen, and the servants, that it may give to them a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads, 17 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.
West Busted Supporting Antichrist ISIS … Tries Instead to Point Finger At Syrian Government
America’s closest allies have been busted supporting Antichrist ISIS in order to topple Syria’s government. Mainstream U.S. writers are calling for open support of Antichrist ISIS and Antichrist Al Qaeda to enact regime change in Syria.
And a newly-declassified government document hints that the West supported the creation of Antichrist ISIS.
This may sound far-fectched and wild-eyed … But the following former high-level US and UK intelligence officials and whistleblowers confirm that the document implicates the West in the birth of Antichrist ISIS:
Military analyst – and famed Pentagon Papers whistleblower – Daniel Ellsberg
High-level NSA official Thomas Drake
Well-known FBI whistleblower Colleen Rowley
Senior MI6 officer Alastair Crooke
MI5 counter-terrorism officer Annie Machon
British counter-terrorism officer Charles Shoebridge
In any event, whether or not you believe the West created Antichrist ISIS, the U.S. is now trying to blame the single most unlikely entity imaginable for Antichrist ISIS … the Syrian government.
Specifically, the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Clown U.S. Embassy in Syria just accused the Syrian government of supporting Antichrist ISIS:
This is all kinds of silly … and is Iraq War propaganda redux.
Specifically, the Syrian government and Antichrist ISIS are mortal enemies.
Here We Go Again …
Of course, truth is the first casualty of war, and so the fact that the Syrian government and Antichrist ISIS are mortal enemies or that Antichrist Saddam (Supported by Rumsfeld to fight a bloody war with Antichrist Iran ”Hello Admiral Crowe American Anthrax/BioPort Billion $ No Bid 911 inside job bonus check in the mail) and Antichrist Al Qaeda hated each other makes no difference in the middle of a tidal wave of propaganda.
I captured this from an old VHS tape of Daniel Sheehan, Founder of the Christic Institute, giving a talk about the Iran-Contra affair. This is important history that’s still relevant today and should not be forgotten.
On the weekend of September 21, 1991, Arkansas State Police Investigator Russell Welch met with IRS Investigator Bill Duncan to write a report on their Investigation of Mena drug smuggling and money laundering and send it to Iran-Contra prosecutor Lawrence Walsh. Investigator Welch had been ordered by Major Doug Stephens to meet with Duncan over the weekend in Arkansas Attorney General Winston Bryant’s office. Welch had just opened a case concerning the theft of sexually explicit photographs which could have been used to blackmail state officials.
On Friday, September 20, Welch went to one of the prisons near Pine Bluff and interviewed the person who had actually taken the photographs. A person whose best friend was very close to Barry Seal. The next morning, Saturday, he and his wife, Debbie Welch, made the three hour drive to Little Rock.
Returning to Mena on Sunday, Welch told his wife that he didn’t feel too well. He thought he had gotten the flu. Monday the symptoms were worse. By Tuesday Welch was certain that he had a serious case of pneumonia. He had had pneumonia before and recognized the symptoms. Tuesday night he could hardly walk and his wife took him to the local hospital. The doctor gave him some over-the-counter cold tablets and sent him home.
But, Welch’s condition deteriorated further to the point where his wife took him to another doctor in Mena the next day. Dr. Calleton, a Vietnam vet, immediately called the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta and told Welch’s wife to get him to Fort Smith immediately. The doctor told her that he should go by ambulance but she might be able to get there faster if she left right then. He called the CDC one more time before they left.
In Fort Smith a team of doctors were waiting. Dr. Calleton had called them twice while Welch was in transport and they had been in contact with the CDC. Later the doctor would tell Welch’s wife that he was on the edge of death. He would not have made it through the night had he not been in the hospital. He was having fever seizures by now.
A couple of days after Welch had been admitted to St. Edwards Mercy Hospital, his doctor was wheeling him to one of the labs for testing when she asked him if he was doing anything at work that was particularly dangerous. He told her that he had been a cop for about 15 years and that danger was probably inherent with the job description. She told Welch that they believed he had anthrax. She said the anthrax was the military kind that is used as an agent of biological warfare and that it was induced. Somebody had deliberately infected him. She added that they had many more test to run but they had already started treating him for anthrax.
THE GREAT ANTHRAX STOCK SWINDLE!
Where, oh where to begin!
Well, let’s begin with Adm. William J. Crowe Jr. It seems that back when Goerge H. W. Bush was setting up Osama Bin Laden as a Freedom fighter (A “freedom fighter” is the same thing as a terrorist, only aimed at someone you don’t like) , the good Admiral (seen right) and his buddies on the Joint Chiefs were selling American made weapons-grade Anthrax to Saddam Hussein in the hopes that he would use it on Iran (and then we wonder why the Iranian people don’t much like Americans). Who knows who else got these American-made weapons of mass destruction either from Admiral Crowe or Saddam.
Admiral Crowe sits on the Board of Directors and owns 13% of BioPort Corporation.
Well, another part of BioPort is owned by the Carlyse Group. That’s George H. W. Bush’s current occupation. Yet another portion is owned by (you had better sit down), the Bin Laden family!
Agent In Charge of Amerithrax Investigation Blows the Whistle
The FBI head agent in charge of the anthrax investigation – Richard Lambert – has just filed a federal whistleblower lawsuit calling the entire FBI investigation bullsh!t:
In the fall of 2001, following the 9/11 attacks, a series of anthrax mailings occurred which killed five Americans and sickened 17 others. Four anthrax-laden envelopes were recovered which were addressed to two news media outlets in New York City (the New York Post and Tom Brokaw at NBC) and two senators in Washington D.C. (Patrick Leahy and Tom Daschle). The anthrax letters addressed to New York were mailed on September 18, 2001, just seven days after the 9/11 attacks. The letters addressed to the senators were mailed 21 days later on October 9, 2001. A fifth mailing of anthrax is believed to have been directed to American Media, Inc. (AMI) in Boca Raton, Florida based upon the death of one AMI employee from anthrax poisoning and heavy spore contamination in the building.
Executive management at FBI Headquarters assigned responsibility for the anthrax investigation (code named “AMERITHRAX”) to the Washington Field Office (WFO), dubbing it the single most important case in the FBI at that time.
The US military said Wednesday a problem involving mistaken shipments of live anthrax is much worse than previously reported, with samples of the lethal bacteria sent to more than 50 laboratories.
Pentagon officials insisted there was no threat to public health but said the latest numbers showed live anthrax spores were shipped to 51 labs in 17 states and the capital Washington, as well as to Australia, Canada and a US base in South Korea.

September 5th, 2013

Senator Lindsey Graham has warned South Carolinians about the threat of a ‘terrorist nuclear attack’ on the same day that our exclusive high level military intel revealed to us that nuclear warheads were being shipped to South Carolina from a major Texas airforce base under an ‘off the record’ black ops transfer.
Found in the CBS report entitled ‘Graham: Nukes In Hands Of Terrorists Could Result In Bomb Coming To Charleston Harbor’, the report details Graham’s warning that a lack of military action in Syria could result in a nuclear ‘bombing’ in Charleston, South Carolina — the very destination of the black ops nuclear transfer. The CBS report reads:
“He [Graham] says if there is no U.S. response [to Syria], Iran will not believe America’s resolve to block Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Graham also says those nuclear weapons in the hands of terrorists could result in a bomb coming to Charleston Harbor.”
Graham is quite literally saying that if we do not launch a war with Syria, South Carolina may be nuked. And this ultimately reeks of yet another false flag being orchestrated by the United States government in order to send us into war, or at the very least a threat. Except this time, we’re talking about nuclear weapons. Amazingly, we were the first to get intel on this from our credible and extremely high level military source, who told us the following:
“Dyess is beginning to move out nuclear war heads today. I got a tap from DERMO earlier. He said it was the first time they have been even acknowledged since being put there in the 80′s. No signature was required for transfer… There was no directive. He said that Dyess Commander was on site to give authority to release. No one knew where they were going really, but the truck driver said to take them to South Carolina and another pick up will take them from there.”
This was sent to us before the Graham report came out warning about the nuclear attack on South Carolina, and coincides exactly with what Graham is saying. I am deeply concerned by these findings, and ask everyone to spread the word on this information immediately. Whether or not Graham is receiving intel from higher ups and believes in a legitimate terror attack on the horizon is unknown, but the reality here is that we have intelligence that has linked the unsigned transfer of nuclear warheads to this exact location.
Here is the video report we did on Tuesday regarding the missing nuclear warheads:
Now, we need answers.
And there came war in the heaven; Michael and his messengers did war against the dragon, and the dragon did war, and his messengers, 8 and they did not prevail, nor was their place found any more in the heaven; 9 and the great dragon was cast forth — the old serpent, who is called `Devil,’ and `the Adversary,’ who is leading astray the whole world — he was cast forth to the earth, and his messengers were cast forth with him. 10 And I heard a great voice saying in the heaven, `Now did come the salvation, and the power, and the reign, of our God, and the authority of His Christ, because cast down was the accuser of our brethren, who is accusing them before our God day and night; 11 and they did overcome him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life — unto death;
12 because of this be glad, ye heavens, and those in them who do tabernacle; wo to those inhabiting the land and the sea, because the Devil did go down unto you, having great wrath, having known that he hath little time.’.
Against this backdrop, the only thing keeping the dream alive is blind faith in the omnipotence of central bankers.
Consider that point, and then consider the following, excerpted from Kuroda’s opening remarks at the 2015 BOJ-IMES Conference:
The issues I have raised so far are all complex, and there are no quick, definitive solutions for them. Nevertheless, I strongly believe that, at this one-and-a-half day conference, we will address the issues we currently face and find our way forward through lively discussions. I trust that many of you are familiar with the story of Peter Pan, in which it says, “the moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.” Yes, what we need is a positive attitude and conviction. Indeed, each time central banks have been confronted with a wide range of problems, they have overcome the problems by conceiving new solutions.
With that, Kuroda has just admitted that DM central banks are literally relying on a fairy tale to keep the global economy and financial system afloat. At least he’s being honest for once.
Remember Gollum, pardon Herman van Rompuy, the former president of the European Commission with a penchant for lugubrious drollery on both Twitter and in real life?
For the upright do inhabit the earth, And the perfect are left in it,
And the wicked from the earth are cut off, And treacherous dealers plucked out of it!
Lo, Jehovah is emptying the land, And is making it waste, And hath overturned [it on] its face, And hath scattered its inhabitants. 2 And it hath been — as a people so a priest, As the servant so his master, As the maid-servant so her mistress, As the buyer so the seller, As the lender so the borrower, As the usurer so he who is lifting [it] on himself. 3 Utterly emptied is the land, and utterly spoiled, For Jehovah hath spoken this word:
4 Mourned, faded hath the land, Languished, faded hath the world, Languished have they — the high place of the people of the land. 5 And the land hath been defiled under its inhabitants, Because they have transgressed laws, They have changed a statute, They have made void a covenant age-during. 6 Therefore a curse hath consumed the land, And the inhabitants in it are become desolate, Therefore consumed have been inhabitants of the land, And few men have been left.
7 Mourned hath the new wine, languished the vine, Sighed have all the joyful of heart. 8 Ceased hath the joy of tabrets, Ceased hath the noise of exulting ones, Ceased hath the joy of a harp. 9 With a song they drink not wine, Bitter is strong drink to those drinking it.
10 It was broken down — a city of emptiness, Shut hath been every house from entrance. 11 A cry over the wine [is] in out-places, Darkened hath been all joy, Removed hath been the joy of the land. 12 Left in the city [is] desolation, And [with] wasting is the gate smitten. 13 When thus it is in the heart of the land, In the midst of the peoples, As the compassing of the olive, As gleanings when harvest hath been finished,
The censorship Berlin Wall on vaccine injuries is starting to crumble… in the UK, at least, where mainstream media outlets there are suddenly covering the thousands of young girls and boys who are routinely damaged by toxic vaccines.
The pharma-controlled, vaccine-worshipping U.S. mainstream media, of course, hilariously pretends vaccines cause no damage to anyone. That’s part of the reason why no one believes the mainstream media anymore, which explains why mainstream media readership is plummeting while New Media readership is exploding. (Our new GoodGopher.com search engine for the New Media has already received over 4,500 new site submits from webmasters.)
Junk science media outlets like the Washington Post — now entirely controlled by Monsanto — attack vaccine skeptics as anti-science people for pointing out that children are being maimed and sometimes killed by vaccines. See Hundreds of children brain damaged by the swine flu vaccine to receive $90 million in financial compensation from UK government.
It makes me wonder: Will the junk science mainstream media in the United States now ridiculously condemn the UK mainstream media as “anti-science” for reporting on the thousands of children being neurologically damaged by vaccines? Does the lamestream media in the USA even remember what journalism is in the first place?
Doctors and state health officials should be on the lookout for >>>people infected<<< with the H5N2 bird flu virus, which has spread to at least 20 states this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday.
While no humans have been diagnosed with either H5N2 or H5N8 avian influenza, the virus’ expansion across the country has caused more than 200 outbreaks among chickens, turkeys and other birds. It’s killed or forced the slaughter of more than 45 million birds, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.
“While these recently identified HPAI H5 viruses are not known to have caused disease in humans, their appearance in North American birds may increase the likelihood of human infection in the United States,” the CDC said.
Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven,[e] but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
9 wherefore, also, God did highly exalt him, and gave to him a name that [is] above every name, 10 that in the name of Jesus every knee may bow — of heavenlies, and earthlies, and what are under the earth — 11 and every tongue may confess that Jesus Christ [is] Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
THE BAD NEWS: Congress’ legislative “fix,” intended to mollify critics of the NSA, will ensure that the agency is not in any way hindered in its ability to keep spying on Americans’ communications.
It appears – as opposed to what the world’s asset-gathering commission-takers would have one believe – that huge illiquid spikes in bond markets are not good for stocks. As the bond carnage continues to careen throughout Asia, Chinese stock investors appear to have decided enough is enough at doubling their money in a mere few months. After early weakness out of the gate, the ubiquitous dip-buyer-of-last-resort failed to appear as the afternoon session arrived and Chinese stock indices are down between 5% (Shanghai Comp – which never took out its previous highs) and 7% (CHINEXT which was up over 16% in the last 3 days) overnight. Everybody better be hoping for a disastrous jobs number on Friday or this drop may suddenly become the long lost ‘healthy’ correction in global stocks so many have called for.
And the last week… 10% correction… 16% face-ripper… 7% correction
Every asset manager in the world is currently praying that MSCI does not include Antichrist China in its indices or risk budgets everywhere will be blown and exposure to global equities will be forced lower.
A week ago, Russian “crime syndicates” were blamed when the Antichrist NWO 666 IRS announced that a “major cyber breach allowed criminals to steal the tax returns of more than 100,000 people.” Today, it is Antichrist Free Trade Partner Communist China’s turn to be blamed following a report that the FBI is probing what has been described as “one of the largest thefts of government data ever seen.”
The alleged penetration by The Antichrist NWO 666 Great Walmart Of Communist China Chinese hackers breached the files of the Office of Personnel Management, in which a vast amount of information about federal employees was accessed. According to the WSJ, investigators believe the hack compromised the records of approximately 4 million individuals. Indicatively, according to the OPM, there are about 4.2 million total personnel, so the hack affected some 95% of all Antichrist NWO 666 Federal workers.
It was unclear how the 911 Inside Job 1993 FBI Bombers and American Anthrax criminal bastards determined that Antichrist NWO 666 Great Walmart Of Communist China Chinese hackers were behind the attack: supposedly computer experts in Antichrist Communist China were able to penetrate the massive Antichrist NWO 666 US government firewalls, foregoing the guaranteed fame and riches from BTFD in Chinese stocks.
In any event, the release of this data just days after the NSA’s massive surveillance powers were curbed is hardly a coincidence, although it remains to be seen if this latest penetration of government workers will generate any sympathy points with the massive spy agency, best known for cracking down not on foreign hackers but on domestic electronic communication.
The revelation, however, is sure to inflame already tense relations between Antichrist Communist China and the Antichrist NWO 666 US, which has reached a fever point in recent weeks over the escalation of Antichrist Communist Chinese encroachment into territories claimed by Antichrist NWO 666 US allies in the far far far East-South Antichrist Communist China Sea.
Giant Artificial City Being Constructed Where Self-Driving Cars, Drones, Terminators, Smart Grids, And New Wireless Communication Technology (Beast Tech?) Will Roam Streets, Sky, Homes, And People To Forecast Tomorrow
We’ll leave it to readers to determine what it says about police accountability in America when other countries feel compelled to put a face and a name to hundreds of people whose deaths, if left in the hands of the US government, might have gone unnoticed or worse, undocumented.
The US government has no comprehensive record of the number of people killed by law enforcement. This lack of basic data has been glaring amid the protests, riots and worldwide debate set in motion by the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old, in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014.
Anxiety over financial stability and shadow banking risks appear to have force Christine Lagarde and her fellow extrapolators to hit the panic button:
*IMF CUTS U.S. 2015 GROWTH FORECAST TO 2.5% FROM 3.1%
*FED SHOULD WAIT FOR TANGIBLE SIGNS OF WAGE, PRICE GAINS: IMF
*DOLLAR `MODERATELY OVERVALUED,’ CURBING U.S. GROWTH, JOBS: IMF
*IMF URGES FED TO DELAY FIRST RATE INCREASE UNTIL 1H 2016
Adding that they viewed the Dollar as “moderately overvalued” and any more appreciation would be “harmful,” it seems global disinflationary pressures have left the IMF no choice but to say publicly what everyone has uttered under their breath.
Now Yellen is really cornered.. and just exactly how are the talking heads going to spin this as positive?
In other words, as long as global trade is “in the doldrums” (to quote BofAML) and as long as aggregate demand is subdued, wage growth will remain elusive for more than three quarters of American workers.
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures saying, as it were a voice of thunder, `Come and behold!’ 2 and I saw, and lo, a white horse, and he who is sitting upon it is having a bow, and there was given to him a crown, and he went forth overcoming, and that he may overcome. 3 And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, `Come and behold!’ 4 and there went forth another horse — red, and to him who is sitting upon it, there was given to him to take the peace from the land, and that one another they may slay, and there was given to him a great sword.
5 And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, `Come and behold!’ and I saw, and lo, a black horse, and he who is sitting upon it is having a balance in his hand, 6 and I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, `A measure of wheat for a denary, and three measures of barley for a denary,’ and `The oil and the wine thou mayest not injure.’ 7 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, `Come and behold!’ 8 and I saw, and lo, a pale horse, and he who is sitting upon him — his name is Death, and Hades doth follow with him, and there was given to them authority to kill, (over the fourth part of the land,) with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and by the beasts of the land..
Underneath the Propaganda, the Economy Is In BAD Shape …
We noted 3 years ago that the velocity of money – an important economic indicator – is lower than during the Great Depression.
Things have gotten even worse since since then …
By way of background, the velocity of money is the rate at which people spend money.
In other words, it’s the speed at which a dollar moves from one person to the next through the economy.
The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis explains:
The velocity of money can be calculated as the ratio of nominal gross domestic product (GDP) to the money supply … which can be used to gauge the economy’s strength or people’s willingness to spend money. When there are more transactions being made throughout the economy, velocity increases, and the economy is likely to expand. The opposite is also true: Money velocity decreases when fewer transactions are being made; therefore the economy is likely to shrink.
The St. Louis Fed labels the velocity of money as “Gross Domestic Product/St. Louis Adjusted Monetary Base” … and provides the following data on the velocity of money between the start of the Great Depression and today:
Bottom line: The velocity of money has fallen much farther – and to much lower ultimate levels – than during the Great Depression.
On Tuesday we brought you what will likely be the first of many calls for so-called “Helicopter money”, whose advocates suppose that the reason printing trillions in fiat currency has not yet brought about the desired effects in terms of stoking aggregate demand and promoting robust economic growth is that central banks have yet to go the nuclear route by simply mailing out free money to everyone.
Here’s an excerpt from the Bloomberg View piece:
“Money isn’t a liability in the ordinary sense. Nothing is owed and nothing ever has to be paid back.”
As ridiculous as that sounds, it’s not exactly surprising in a debt-addicted world run by Keynesian central planners and indeed, it echoes recent calls by US lawmakers for the absolution of some $1.3 trillion in student debt.
Now, it appears the insanity has spread to the highest possible levels with none other than the IMF’s deputy director of research suggesting that when governments are faced with too much debt, they should consider simply not worrying about it.
In a new research paper, the IMF’s research department says that as long as countries can fund themselves at a reasonable cost via capital markets, they should consider simply “living with high debt”:
While some countries face debt sustainability constraints that leave them little choice, others are in the more comfortable position of being able to fund themselves at reasonable—even exceptionally low—interest rates. For these countries, there is a very real question of whether to live with high debt while allowing the debt ratio to decline organically through growth, or to pay it down deliberately to reduce the burden of the debt…
Next, the Fund says that if there’s still room to borrow, paying down debt makes no sense:
If fiscal space remains ample, policies to deliberately pay down debt are normatively undesirable…
It only gets better when the suggestion is made that contrary to reality, paying down debt actually increases countries’ debt burden:
Distorting your economy to deliberately pay down the debt only adds to the burden of the debt, rather than reducing it.
But the real punchline comes when the team of economists moves to consider how heavily-indebted countries should respond to an exogenous debt shock:
With these preliminaries, we can turn to our question of interest: what happens if there is an exogenous increase in public debt?
It turns out that the optimal policy involves living with the debt forever.
The analytical framework implies that it is better to live with high debt than to pay it down.
Paging Greek PM Tsipras: may we suggest a new bargaining strategy in your negotiations with the IMF, because what we dubbed the Greek hell over the weekend, was really its heaven, at least according to the IMF.
^^^and now everyone knows why ”they” have taken away weapons from the good people and armed the largest employer ”Government”. Every sane person on the planet at this point would shoot everyone at the IMF and every central banker dead, that is if they tried to resist being properly hung like the aborted generation they have willfully cast upon their Antichrist sacrificial ritual alter by which their current power has devoured labor from the Capitol Womb Mecca of Antichrist ISIS to The Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
Consider the overwhelming prophetic reality of these satanic ”International Monetary Fund” verses, and quantify the reality among all nations and Israel sealed with this ”mark of the beast”, which represents the false measure of a man, his name and number sealed upon this generation of prophetic ”Whore(s) riding The Beast” representing the false measure of the ”rider on The Black Horse” carrying the scales of ”Revelation” declaring the false measure which cries out as the labor pangs of a woman about to be delivered from this corrupted last generation and Earth.
To further quantity the false measure, consider all those that have accepted the prophetic mark of the beast now sealed upon this prophetic generation. Who are the defenders of the IMF and Global Central Bankers given their power through the corrupted nations and Israel? Are they not those that remain silent as their children are offered as leverage from the womb? What wicked fool would knowingly desire their own child to be born and offered upon the satanic altar of the IMF Global Central Bankers at this point without at least making a lethal effort to ensure that every last bastard in power now is dead, down to the passive silent majority that has voted for one of two evils?
In Fredensborg, Denmark, ten official cars from the Tax Administration Office were set on fire and destroyed overnight in a protest. As ExstraBladet reports, police received notification Wednesday night at 3:09 a.m. that the Tax Administration offices on Kratvej were on fire. So far, there are no suspects. But, as Martin Armstrong notes, the police will undoubtedly hunt for someone retaliating against the Tax Man.
As Martin Armstrong further points out, this is not the first time the world has seen this…
On February 18, 2010, a man in a dispute with the IRS for seizing his home flew his plane in a suicide mission directly into the IRS building in Austin, Texas.
His battle against the Tax Man made him a hero to many.
As the economy turns down and governments become far more aggressive to grab money from everyone, we should see a sharp rise in these types of incidents.
This is part of the rising trend in civil unrest.
This is all insane since money is no longer tangible; taxes are also no longer necessary. We should seriously address the fact that money is not what it used to be.
We have moved forward in technology, science, medicine, and every field except economics. France is high on the list for a major tax revolution as nearly 50% of GDP is consumed by annual tax collections. That is totally insane. And they wonder why the rich flee and unemployment rises? This is the 21st century, not the 17th. Money has changed and taxes are no longer necessary, yet they create it anyway. That is like me giving you a $100 bonus and then charging you $50 to receive it.
What’s the point? They spend more than they collect anyway.
Certainly the return of Christ is not coming to save the evil bastards that have called for their own judgment to come upon them, as the aborted children from their mothers womb and Earth. These are ”they” that are given the prophetic strong delusion all nations and Israel have been given. These are they that drink from the golden cup of fornication filled with the prophetic strong delusion, which is the wine of wrath within all nations an Israel. The ”International Monetary Fund” of the borderless Antichrist New World Order Global Central Bankers is the image of the Whore Of Babylon And The Beast.
This generation is now witness to the Whore Of Babylon standing in contempt as the Antichrist Body among Israel and all nations, the prophetic Whore(s) riding the corrupt Central Banker’s Global ”free” borderless Market Image Of The Beast caused to speak, and as many that do not accept the mark of the beast ”debt’ seal, the Saints of our Father in Christ standing fast and doing no harm and worship are sealed in Christ separated an apposed to the Whore of Babylon and The Beast , should be killed. Thats is the ”New World Order” Whore of Babylon.
”She”, The prophetic Whore of Babylon, is riding to destruction death and Hell on Earth.
The fact is the Bride of the IMF nations and Israel is the Antichrist NWO 666 Drag Queen Aborted image divorced from Salvation and the mercy of our Father in Christ. Now this fallen generation, the prophetic last generation, stands in agreement as the Antichrist Homosexual Gay Pride New World Order 666 Obozo The 911 Clown image of The Antichrist Beast married unto ”it’s own self” devouring (quantifiable lack of ”the required sustaining principle”) rate of ”return”, which ”IS” the Suicide Vampire Squid Of The Great Walmart Of China ”mirror image” of death and destruction and ”The Antichrist spirit among the Nations and Israel” which willfully ”aborted the foundation and cause required to sustain labor” …”life” …liberty …freedom …independence and justice for all.
The IMF offer is the offer of temptation by which short term gain has derived power among all nations and Israel. It is the antichrist spirit by which power wields the ”Cup of Fornication” which holds the prophetic strong delusion that has made all nations and Israel drunk with the blood of innocence and all Saints that shall have suffered the quantifiable pain of death overflowing from the cup as the prophetic wine of wrath which pours out like a flood, as in the Days of Noah given the sign of Jonah to repent and make straight the way of The Lord of Host our Father in Christ.
Woe unto to this generation, having heard these words come from the corrupt International Monetary Fund body, at Zero interest rates beyond 100% 666 seal of Debt/tax to GDP mark of the prophetic end time lawless global borderless all time high market beast, ridden by The Whore Of Babylon, as it were Ishtar under the Lion Of Babylon fallen from the saddle of Babylon for the last and final time before being consumed by the fire of her own judgment, as it were the furnace of Babylon consuming every drunken fool become as ”The Whore(s)” fallen from Babylon’s saddle.
This generation only gives birth to an aborted ”IMF” Global Central Bank 666 sealed and condemned generation about to be consumed by fire. There are no prayers that shall turn the leaders of the nations and Israel which have consumed the prophetic strong delusion within the golden cup held in the Whore Of Babylon’s hand as she rides the prophetic ”Mark Of The Beast” last generation straight to the fires of Hell on Earth. There are no prayers to be offered up for those that have accepted the prophetic mark of the beast and are condemned. The general public is Antichrist among all nations and Israel. They are deceived and given strong delusion so they believe the lie that their Antichrist government and religious leaders offer them, and if possible shall kill every Saint as with all flesh. The nature of The Beast is a self devouring fool raging as a lion consuming it’s tail as a snake seeking to heal it’s own self inflicted wound from within a desolate womb.
There is no hope for this generation. Only the Saints of our Father in Christ shall awake as the risen Bride sealed in agreement and given The New Name. There is no call for the Saints to take up the arm of man. The call is to proclaim the coming of Christ, whom shall render all accordingly. The Saints, having accepted the sustaining law of mercy and the gift of ”I AM SALVATION” proclaimed through Moses and The Son of Man, Yahshua himself, to even The Holy Spirit among the numbered Saints called out from the nations and Israel unto our Father in Christ, shall endure the last harvest among the nations and Israel
Everyone that does not now believe the Antichrist spirit has sealed this terminal generation is either asleep still and in need of the final tribulation events to be awakened, or they are lost. The lost aid and abet the antichrist Spirit among the nations and Israel, and stand as unsealed corrupted host for demonic possession and the prophetic leaping frog. Any Saint of our Father in Christ suddenly inspired to proclaim his name, even silently as they are so moved, the Holy Spirit witness in Christ casts the darkness out from a room and even the body shall awake and be risen.
The tribulation era of the Two Witnesses is about to begin. It is time for the last years of the final call to now begin, and every doubt as to the confirming commencement event shall be laid waste but for the wicked that stand far off in fear of Babylon falling after sealing the prophetic false peace and security among Israel and the nations.
Following yesterday’s “large-scale” rebel offensive, as Ukraine’s military reported it, and hot on the heels of Poroshenko’s threat of imminent martial law (including the right to detain or force relocate foreign nationals at will) and Soros’ exposure as the ‘lethal-weapon-demanding’ puppet-master, Tass reports Ukraine’s nationalists affiliated with the extremist organization calling itself the Right Sector (outlawed in Russia) have been urged to cut short their vacations and all commanders, ordered to begin full mobilization. NATO has asked both sides to back down, focused on Russia’s responsibility as Poroshenko says there are now more than 9,000 Russian troops on Ukraine soil (though YouTube proof remains absent).
As Tass reports, Poroshenko appears to be falling back on his neo-nazi ‘non-terrorist’ supporters to fight the pro-Russian ‘terrorists’…
Ukraine’s nationalists affiliated with the extremist organization calling itself the Right Sector (outlawed in Russia) have been urged to cut short their vacations and all commanders, ordered to begin full mobilization, Right Sector spokesman Andrey Stempitsky has said.
“Those who are away on vacation or have left for home during the lull on the frontline should get ready to return to their units. The commanders of reserve battalions should declare mobilization to build up their squads to full strength and keep their men ready to leave for combat units or a training center,” Stempitsky says in a message posted on Facebook.
Stempitsky said that “despite resistance from the advocates of armistice we will go to fight.”
The Right Sector is a Ukrainian association of radical nationalist organizations. In November 2014 Russia’s Supreme Court declared it as an extremist organization and outlawed its operation in Russia’s territory. Earlier, Russia launched criminal proceedings against the group’s leader Dmitry Yarosh over calls for terrorism.
As DPA reports, Poroshenko knows who to blame…
There are more than 9,000 Russian troops in Ukraine, presenting the threat of an upcoming large-scale offensive, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Thursday. A surge in fighting between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian military forces in eastern Ukraine this week has been the deadliest since a ceasefire was signed in February.
“There is still a colossal threat of a resurgence of large-scale military actions by Russian terrorist groups,” Poroshenko told parliament during a speech to mark the end of his first year in office.
“On the territory of Ukraine there are 14 Russian military battalions of tactical groups amounting to more than 9,000 servicemen,” Poroshenko said.
As does NATO…
Russia must act to reduce east Ukraine tension – NATO’s Stoltenberg
Russia has a particular responsibility to help stop the renewed fighting in eastern Ukraine, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Thursday. Both sides in the conflict must withdraw heavy weapons from the frontline and help implement the previously signed ceasefire agreements, he told reporters in Oslo.
Then the finger-pointing escalated:
*RHODES: `ONGOING VIOLATIONS’ BY RUSSIA OF MINSK AGREEMENTS
*RUSSIA REITERATES IT HAS NO TROOPS IN UKRAINE: IFX
It appears, perhaps strengthening Soros’ case for lethal aid, that The Minsk Accord is hanging by a thread.
Shifting gears just a bit, I want to bring up a topic I have not seen anyone even talk about. Do you remember last November when Congress, the Senate in particular was “shaken up”? “We” (the American people) threw the bums out! I can remember it vividly, Congress would now be able to hamstring a president running roughshod over the Constitution. I thought it might be a glimmer of hope …I thought WRONG! Has anything been done to reverse or retard Obozocare? The answer of course is no, nothing. I ask you this, what exactly did we get for our votes to evict the “bums”?… …How about Loretta Lynch! How did she get confirmed as Attorney General? As Ted Cruz said, “she looked Senators in the eye and told us she intends to disregard the law”http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/04/24/exclusive-ted-cruz-loretta-lynch-was-confirmed-because-gop-establishment-wanted-her-to-be/ . I ask, was there even a purpose to the last election? Or better yet, once the financial system comes down and social unrest unleashes martial law, was that our LAST election?
I am not kidding here folks, the rule of law is gone in the U.S., our financial system is a totally rigged sham and people believe they are “wealthy”… are they really? We have zero press left to hold anyone’s feet to the fire or accountable for anything. More people now “take” than “pay” and we are so broke as a nation we can’t even afford to pay attention! What could possibly go wrong? The worst thing of all is if you were to bring up even one of the above “cluster bombs” at a summer BBQ, it is YOU who are the nutcase! Our Forefathers are in tears.
With last month’s failed (so far) breakout in the U.S. equity market, stocks are relegated once again to range-bound status. Essentially the market has gone nowhere since the beginning of the year and, by some measures, 2015 has been the quietest start to a year in over a century. One characteristic of the stagnant action has been a lack of out-sized daily moves in the market, up or down. Specifically, as detailed in today’s Chart Of The Day, June 1, 2015 marked 111 days since the S&P 500 last had a 2% daily gain or loss. This is the index’s longest streak without a 2% day since the one that ended on June 1, 2012 at…111 days.
So what is the significance of this streak? Is the market “due” for a big up or down day? Well, since 1950, the median length of time in between 2% days is 42 days, or about exactly 2 months. The S&P 500 hasn’t even had a 2% day this year. Its last 2% day came on December 18th (the 2nd of 2 consecutive 2% up days). So in a way, yes, the market is due for a big move.
However, a market’s micro-environment tends to be more persistent than one may expect. That is, high volatility periods tend to persist and low volatility periods tend to persist. Yes, one extreme usually leads the other, but not always right away. For example, the S&P 500 once went 680 days, from October 2003 to June 2006 without a 2% day. On the flip side, the S&P 500 went almost the entire back half of 2011, from July 27 to January 5, 2012, where it never even experienced a double digit streak of days without a 2% move. Thus, we wouldn’t necessarily hold our breadth waiting for the environment to change, i.e., the next 2% day to occur.
As far as historical streaks go, here are some more facts and figures:
Since 1950, there have been 40 other streaks of at least 100 days without a 2% move in the S&P 500.
The median of those 40 streaks was 187 days.
19 of the streaks ended with a 2% up day; 21 ended with a 2% down day.
9 of the last 10 streaks ended with a 2% down day.
What is the takeaway? There likely is nothing predictive here. The major point is probably that the markets have been pretty dull, or at least lackluster, during the first half of 2015. As we mentioned, while the market is long “overdue” for a big move, these environments tend to persist. So the fact that the streak is a long one doesn’t imply that its end is imminent (although, certain patterns, e.g., wedges, among the indexes do not have much longer before they reach their apex, suggesting a breakout one way or another.)
In the end, this one may be just more a bit of trivia than anything else. <<<-LMAO

The sobering reality of David Cameron’s plan only feels compounded, like a slap in the face, by the surreal and insane spectacle, of watching the actual head of state (the Queen), articulate the other so-called head of state’s (the prime minister) pre-election promises, which are to be continued for another five years. Five more years of cuts and slashes to public services that is, with ever increasing powers of surveillance for the state and its agencies. Great news!.
The Queen sitting amid jewels and relics, stolen and pillaged from civilisations and lands far from our shores, outlining the government’s plan to further marginalize the poor and clamp down on freedom, is a bitter pill to swallow. It’s a bizarre and cruel twist, however, to see the symbolic head of an empire, historically and to the present day, carrying out the same function as ever, manufacturing consent for the sake of control. It’s almost as if after all these years, the silly ceremonies and pomp are still all that’s needed to keep the masses in their place before an advancing police state with more and more powers. The ones subjected to the function of the monarchy (fittingly called subjects) often seem the least aware of its function, believing they are being patriotic and loyal to their country by worshipping the royal family when in reality they are simply consenting to be ruled, consenting to be governed.
People submit to the already existing order, whipped up and fuelled by a toxic brand of nationalism, convinced of an ever present existential enemy, the source of all the problems in society-the ‘others’ syndrome. Blame foreigners, blame Muslims, benefit fraudsters, the ‘urban’ underclass, for society’s ills- anyone in fact, except those doing the looting at the top, a narrative to which the MSM at least, wilfully complies.
Rather than observing royal ceremonies as part of the problem, an archaic hangover to a nonetheless very real empire, people swear allegiance to a power structure that is indifferent to their own lives in Britain, and which continues to leave a trail of destruction around the world.
People are tired, desperate, and many literally hungry. In 2015, it’s a disgrace that Britain or any other so-called developed nation have such things as food banks, and it’s a scourge on our country that we even have homelessness, many or most of them ex-military, who once fought for the idea of ‘Queen and country’ but who have been hung out to dry by the same system they thought they were fighting for.
Cameron wasn’t kidding with his one nation theme. It is one nation, just not for us. The rotten political establishment is at one with the unelected power structure that presides over us. The minute people begin to let go of this charade we can begin a process of really critiquing power in an honest way. Until then the outcome of elections and speeches by the Queen make little difference to the lives of ordinary people: the government always wins.
When we think about the legacy of the British Empire and the role of the monarchy, perhaps Thomas Jefferson was right: “Dissent is the greatest form of patriotism.”
They are still only debating the conditions for the disbursement of the final €7.2bn from the previous Greek bailouts! Even if they agree to that, which would cover the €6.5bn or so that Greece needs to get through June, that would still leave Greece with no way to pay its large debts to the ECB and others that are due in July and August. To get through the summer, there would need to be another whole bailout agreement, covering around €30-50bn more given to Greece and including a whole additional set of economic reforms and surplus targets! Which Eurozone Parliament is going to vote for that?
Yanis Varoufakis says he got the shakedown from EU creditors during his first few days in office.
The Greek FinMin told Parapolitika Radio that during his first week on the job, creditors threatened Syriza with capital controls if they could not come to a swift compromise with the institutions.
While the idea of capital controls may have been invoked in early February merely as a means of extorting the new Greek government, acute deposit flight is now a reality. Indeed, it appears that even in the event a deal with creditors is sealed, some form of capital controls will be necessary as the agreement works its way through the Greek parliament (a process which may be riddled with political uncertainty).
Barclays goes on to compare the Greek experience to Argentina and Cyprus:
The case of Greece would in all likelihood require the introduction of IOUs before those are converted into a new local currency, which may or may not be pegged at a considerably devalued exchange rate to the euro. The extent and duration of controls will also depend on whether Greece remains in the EU after EMU exit (we believe it would); whether there would be a plan for a future rejoining of the EMU; whether it will continue receiving EU financial support; and whether the Eurosystem would continue to supervise the Greek banking system.
The controls in Cyprus were required to deal with an insolvent banking system, while macroeconomic and political conditions were considerably less challenging than in Greece or Argentina. Unlike Greece, in the case of Cyprus there was less fear of an EA exit and redenomination risk was more remote. However, bank assets had grown to about 750% of GDP.
In contrast, the Greek banking system is relatively much smaller (222% of GDP as of December 2014) and has already undergone recapitalisation as result of the IMF-EU programmes since 2011. In principle, therefore, the banks are solvent (a prerequisite for the provision of Eurosystem’s liquidity). Instead, deposits and capital controls in Greece would result from an accelerating deposit run on Greek banks and/or if the ECB decided to halt ELA – with either event likely to trigger the other (though, in our view, the ECB is unlikely to be the trigger without a breakdown in programme negotiations). Thus, the basic challenge, namely to limit the deposit outflows, would seem quite similar in both cases even if the motivations differed. Depositors would have to be restricted in withdrawing cash and/or transferring deposits outside the domestic banking system (ie, cross border). It is likely, therefore, that restrictions in Greece would look similar to those in Cyprus, albeit with different quantitative limits.
So to all the Greek depositors, we sincerely hope that you are not shaken down by Varoufakis the same way he was shaken down by an ‘unnamed’ EU official.
And just like that, after effectively defaulting to the IMF a month ago, Greece has just re-effectively re-defaulted to the same IMF on its payment due tomorrow, which now will not be made, just as predicted.
Then, adding to the confusion, Greek PM Tsipras tweeted some token statement which for some inexpicable reason had a photo of himself in the tweet:
Just like that, Greece has called the troika’s bluff and put the ball back into creditors’ court. For their part, Europe expects a re-counter proposal to the troika’s original counter proposal by June 8:
The Euro Working Group expects Greece to respond to an EU proposal to conclude the country’s bailout by June 8, according to a person familiar with the talks.
The farce continues.
In any event, with Friday’s payment delayed, there are just a few more left they shall never pay, ah has has ..hee her her …ho ho ho moo has has haaaa.
As you looked, a [b]Stone was cut out without human hands, which smote the image on its feet of iron and [baked] clay [of the potter] and broke them to pieces. 35 Then the iron, the [baked] clay [of the potter], the bronze, the silver, and the gold were broken and crushed together and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors, and the wind carried them away so that not a trace of them could be found. And the Stone that smote the image became a great mountain or rock and filled the whole earth.
The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
4 In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord of hosts their God.
6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
7 The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
8 In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.
9 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
“Everyone who hears this should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches!
“I will give the hidden manna to everyone who wins the victory. I will also give each one a white stone that has a new name written on it. And no one will know this name except the one who gets the stone.
All agree that the passage describes an apocalyptic vision of an attack on Jerusalem in which God appears with angels on chariots to save the city. The central angelic character is Gabriel, the first angel to appear in the Hebrew Bible. “I am Gabriel,” the writing declares.
The exhibit traces the development of the archangel Gabriel in the three monotheistic religions, displaying a Dead Sea Scroll fragment which mentions the angel’s name; the 13th century Damascus Codex, one of the oldest illustrated manuscripts of the complete Hebrew Bible; a 10th century New Testament manuscript from Brittany, in which Gabriel predicts the birth of John the Baptist and appears to the Virgin Mary.
Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 Clown took a step toward a tougher line with Israel in an interview released Tuesday, raising the possibility that the U.S. will allow a Antichrist NWO 666 United Nations vote on issues related to the Antichrist Palestinians if the two sides make no meaningful movement toward the prophetic Antichrist peace.
In an interview with an Israeli television station, Obozo noted that his administration has “up until this point” quashed such efforts at the Antichrist NWO 666 U.N. while insisting that the Israelis and Antichrist Palestinians must negotiate a resolution. But he said it is a challenge for the U.S. to keep demanding that the Antichrist Palestinians negotiate in good faith if no one believes the Israelis are doing the same.
Obozo’s veiled threat about Antichrist Palestinian statehood lands hard at a time when the U.S. and other world powers are in high-stakes negotiations with Antichrist Iranian officials to limit their country’s nuclear program. Israel deeply opposes the deal on the grounds that it will bolster Antichrist Iran’s nuclear efforts and its economy and boost its aggression in the Middle East; some of Iran’s leaders have said Israel does not have the right to exist. The deadline for a deal, a major foreign-policy priority for Obozo, is at the end of the month, and the president is already gearing up for the difficult sales job ahead of him if an agreement is reached. Congress has demanded a chance to review the deal, a point Obozo has ceded, but the deep opposition from Israel could complicate his attempts to gain approval from U.S. lawmakers who ardently support Israel.
In advance of that prospect, Obozo recently visited a prominent Washington synagogue to talk about his deep love of Israel. Close advisors and friends have tried to underscore the point, with former senior advisor David Axelrod telling Israeli Channel 2 that Obozo feels a deep personal affinity for the Antichrist Jewish people.
And in an interview with the Atlantic magazine last week, Obozo also talked about his personal commitment to the security of Israel, and idea he mirrored in the new interview with Channel 2’s Ilana Dayan.
Obozo told Dayan that the U.S. assistance to Israel on security, intelligence and military matters “doesn’t go away” because it is part of a “solemn commitment that I’ve made with respect to Israel’s security.”
But there may be a “practical consequence” if there are new resolutions introduced in the Antichrist NWO 666 U.N., he said.
Antichrist NWO 666 U.S. President Barack Obozo The 911 Clown said Israeli Antichrist NWO 666 Prime Minister Benjamin 911 Netanyahu’s terms for diplomacy that might lead to a Antichrist Palestinian state meant Israel had lost international credibility as a potential Antichrist NWO 666 prophetic peacemaker.
Needless to say, the responses on Twitter expressed incredulity:
Today the White House proudly posted on Twitter a video clip of Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 Clown speaking somewhere – it’s unclear when and where, but he was clearly without the assistance of teleprompters.
The highlight of the short clip was Obozo’s assertion that
One of my core principles is that I will never engage in a politics in which I’m trying to divide people, or make them less than me because they look different or have a different religion. That’s not something I would violate.
`Fire I came to cast to the earth, and what will I if already it was kindled 50 but I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how am I pressed till it may be completed!
51 `Think ye that peace I came to give in the earth? no, I say to you, but rather division;.
Antichrist NWO 666 UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Wednesday called on “all parties with influence” in the prophetic Antichrist NWO 666 Israeli-Palestinian conflict to immediately desist from taking unilateral actions that undermine trust and urged them to resume peace negotiations.
Speaking at an UNRWA (Relief and Works Agency for Antichrist Palestinians in the Antichrist Middle East) conference, Ban stressed that past political failure “must not lead to a humanitarian – and indeed, moral — failure.”
The latest attempt at peace talks between Israel and the Antichrist Palestinians broke down more than a year ago.
The prospect of a peace accord became increasingly dismal in light of last summer’s war in Gaza between Israel and Antichrist Hamas.
Ban indicated that the failure to reconstruct the vast damaged caused in the coastal Antichrist Palestinian enclave during last year’s conflict would lead to yet another round of violence.
“We know where failure to address these and other issues will lead. We have seen it time and again,” he said. “Gaza is a powder keg – mounting frustration and anger will surely light the fuse. Action is needed now”
He added that the mechanism for Gaza reconstruction, overseen by the Antichrist NWO 666 United Nations, required reconciliation between feuding Antichrist Palestinian factions along with strong terms to the cease-fire arrangement that brought an end to the 50-day Operation Protective Edge.
Ban’s remarks came after ”500 Days to avoid Global Climate Abyss Chaos Disaster” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius announced last Thursday that he would travel to the region in June in a bid to advance efforts to relaunch discussions over a two-state solution.
NASA is GO for LDSD Launch June 4
Posted on June 3, 2015 at 7:36 pm by Kim Newton.
NASA’s Low Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) test flight, carried aloft by a high altitude balloon, has been cleared for launch tomorrow, Thursday, June 4. The balloon launch will occur no earlier than 1:30 p.m. EDT, 7:30 a.m. HST.
NASA Television and JPL’s Ustream channel will carry live coverage of the launch activities beginning at 7 a.m. HST, 1 p.m. EDT. Launch commentary will begin 30 minutes prior to launch.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will start smashing particles together at unprecedented speed on Wednesday, churning out data for the first time in more than two years that scientists hope might help crack the mystery of “dark matter”.
The LHC, a 27 km (17 mile) underground complex near Geneva, will smash protons at 13 tera-electron-volts (TeV), almost twice the energy achieved in an initial three-year run that began in 2010. This proved the existence of the elusive Higgs boson particle, a discovery that produced two Nobel prizes in 2013.
Nobody knows quite what the LHC might reveal with its new particle collisions — mini-versions of the Big Bang primordial blast that brought the universe into being 13.8 billion years ago — but scientists hope it will produce evidence of what has been dubbed “new physics”.
This concept includes “dark matter”, thought to make up some 96 percent of the stuff of the universe while being totally invisible, and super-symmetry, or SUSY, under which all visible particles have unseen counterparts.
“The only thing we really know is that there is ‘new physics’ because the model that we have is not complete,” said Luca Malgeri, a scientist working at the European physics research center CERN.
“It might be linked to dark matter or it might not. It might be linked to something totally new.”
In a brief statement on Tuesday, CERN said the LHC would begin early on Wednesday morning “delivering physics data for the first time in 27 months”.
If there is a particle missing from current knowledge of the building blocks of the universe, CERN scientists hope that it might be spotted, even fleetingly, in the debris of the billions of collisions, just as the Higgs boson was.
The first results might come early, Malgeri said, because the LHC already searched for smaller particles on its previous run, and a bigger particle might show up quickly, if high energy collisions are the key to its existence.
It may have extremely weak interaction with other forces, which might explain why it had never been observed before.
“MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION”
The CERN scientists would hope to detect any dark matter by noticing that some energy was missing after the collision, which would betray the existence of such a particle, Malgeri said.
If the hoped-for particle is only created very rarely, it may take many more collisions to find it, which is why the number of collisions – the LHC’s “luminosity” – will increase over the next three years until it is 10 times brighter than on its first run.
Whether anything will be observed, however, is anybody’s guess.
“This is the million dollar question,” Malgeri said. “We are wide open. After the first run of the LHC, all possibilities are equally probable for new physics.”

At this juncture there’s no hope of an actual payment on Friday. Discussions between Tsipras and creditors will likely stretch into the weekend and even if an agreement were struck yesterday, passing the terms through parliament is bound to be an arduous process. Bundling the payments or arrears pending a government shakeout seems to be the most likely scenario. As for an actual default, as mentioned previously, that is to a certain extent a judgement call by the IMF and can ultimately be delayed for at least 30 days at the Fund’s discretion.
Speaking of deal “prospects”, PM Alexis Tsipras will meet with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to discuss Greece’s proposal which Tsipras submitted on Monday evening. Tsipras says Greece “had no feedback on its proposal”, confirming what we said yesterday: creditors seemingly did not care about the Greek draft because Hollande, Merkel, Draghi, and Junker apparently agreed on Monday that the troika would simply pen a final proposal for Tsipras and let him know where he needed to sign.
As for the troika’s draft agreement, Dutch PM Mark Rutte confirms what we already knew: the issues are pension reform, fiscal belt-tightening, and VAT.
For all the optimists out there, we’ll leave you with the following from Spanish FinMin Luis de Guindos:
“[You] can check in [to the euro] but not check out. [I’m] totally sure [Greece will get deal].”
The ECB left policy unchanged on Wednesday, as expected.
Attention now turns to the Draghi press conference where they’ll be plently to discuss including recent volatility in euro bond markets (which began about a week after Draghi’s April presser), the ECB’s new “flexible” approach to PSPP implementation, the level of support the central bank is prepared to provide for the ailing Greek banking sector should conditions deteriorate further, inflation expectations, and the economic outlook for the eurozone.

Despite all the reassurances by various leaders that any Grexit or Greek bankruptcy would be ‘contained’, Sigmar Gabriel – vice-chancellor and economic minister of Germany’s SPD party – unleashed some uncomfortable truthiness yesterday. With Greek stocks up almost 5% today as hope springs eternal, Gabriel warned of nothing less than “gigantic consequences” for Europe in case of a Greek bankruptcy.
Speaking on Germany’s N24 TV, Gabriel exclaimed:
“It is good that Germany and France try again to find a solution then the political consequences of a Greek bankruptcy would be gigantic for eurozone. I believe that many people have the impression that it’s better to make a painful break now than draw out the agony, but if a stone is out of Europe then Europe’s union would be very differnt.”
With ultimate being thrown like plates in a Greek restaurant, we suspect – despite the rip-roaring rally… …that this is anything but contained, even if Tspiras folds in the short-term.
Bond yields are surging higher (in UST and Bunds) and stocks fading as Draghi offered a mere glimpse at more pre-commitments but warned:
*DRAGHI: MARKETS MUST GET USED TO PERIODS OF HIGHER VOLATILITY
10Y Bunds just hit 80bps, up another 9 bps today for a 2-day spike of a stunning 35bps!
Not what the market weanted to hear…
And Bunds are collapsing…
Biggest 2-day spike since 1998!
It appears Draghi’s comments are not what the market wanted to hear.Bunds have crashed over 30bps in the last 2 days… the biggest 2-day spike since Oct 1998…
The bail-ins are coming. Reuters reported today that European Commission today gave France, Italy and nine other EU countries two months to adopt bank bail-in regulations or face legal action – LINK
The move to require bank bail-ins originated at the BIS – Bank for International Settlements beginning in 2008. In 2011, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) – a sub-committee of the BIS – drafted the boilerplate model for big bank bail-ins: Key Attributes of Effective Resolution Regimes for Financial Institutions.
The objective of an effective resolution regime is to make feasible the resolution of financial institutions without severe systemic disruption and without exposing taxpayers to loss, while protecting vital economic functions through mechanisms which make it possible for shareholders and unsecured and uninsured creditors to absorb losses in a manner that respects the hierarchy of claims in liquidation.
The bank rescue model as drafted lays out a complete systematic procedure for the rescuing and restructuring of any financial institution considered “SIFI” – a Systematically Important Financial Institution. In layman terms this translates into “Too Big To Fail.” This model was endorsed by the G20 at Summit in 2011.
The “model” requires that funds required for a bail-in to prevent a TBTF from collapsing would first be taken from unsecured creditors. This is primarily any depositor money in excess of the amount insured by the Government. Incredibly, and this has been ratified by legislation in the United States, holders of derivative securities of the collapsing bank are considered super-secured. In other words, those stakeholders in the banks would be the last to suffer any losses resulting from the restructuring of an insolvent bank.
In the United States there is over $4 trillion in depositor cash in excess of the amount covered by the FDIC sitting in banks.
Make no mistake about this, bail-in legislation is coming to the U.S. In fact, a $1.1 trillion spending Bill passed by Congress and signed by Obama on December 16, 2014 contained specific provisions drafted (and paid for) by Citibank which ensured that big bank OTC derivatives holdings will be covered by the FDIC (i.e. taxpayer). This is a back-door way of making the next taxpayer bailout of the big banks a legal requirement.
Anyone who keeps any cash in a bank is either completely ignorant of the ways in which that money can be “confiscated” or just completely brain-dead. I suppose there could be a strong element of denial involved as well. Big bank balance sheets are in far worse shape than they were in 2008, especially once you peel away all of the accounting shenanigans and include the off-balance-sheet ticking bombs. It’s not a question of “IF” – It’s a question of “WHEN.”
2015 eastern Pacific hurricane season has just began and is already setting records. With Hurricane “Andres” reaching Category 4 on Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale on June 1 and Hurricane “Blanca” reaching Category 4 on June 3 this is the earliest on record, since 1971, that two major hurricanes developed in the Eastern Pacific.
There have been four other seasons that have had two major hurricanes develop before the end of June, AccuWeather writes.
“Blanca is also expected to become the earliest Category 5 hurricane in the eastern Pacific, a record that is currently being held by Hurricane Ava from 1973. Ava reached that threshold on June 6 of that year,”
We know that crucifixion was invented by the Persians about 300 or 400 years B.C. It was among the most painful and excruciating form of punishment leading to death ever contrived by man for man (women were never crucified). If we trace the word “excruciation” back to its origins we find that it is inextricably linked to the act of crucifixion: Latin excruciatus, past participle of excruciare, from ex- + cruciare to crucify, from cruc-, crux cross (Merriam Webster Dictionary).
Contrary to popular notion the nails which held Jesus to the cross must have been driven into His wrists and not his palms. Jesus’ nails would have been made of heavy, probably square, iron material, 7-9 inches long. Many great painters from the past have depicted Jesus being nailed through His palms to the cross; it is a medical impossibility for this to be the case. You may have to really work your mind to grasp the enormity of what was going on here. The weight of a fully grown man was going to be suspended by three nails.
Not all crucifixions were carried out in the same way; some victims were tied to the cross while others were nailed. Jesus was nailed. He was made to carry the cross-bar to the place of His execution. The upright post (stipe) was a permanent fixture. The crossbar (patibulum) was always carried to the location, not the complete cross as is often depicted. When Jesus got to the place of His execution, He was placed on His back with His arms outstretched. The nails were first driven through small wooden disks to eliminate any chance of the heads pulling through the flesh. The site of the incision in the arm was critical; the Romans had perfected the procedure, a very specific procedure. The legionnaire who had been given the task felt for a specific spot, the nail had to be driven in-between the bones of the forearm up close to the wrist while not severing any major arteries or veins. There is a space between eight small bones which is structurally suitable to permit a full body weight to be supported for a time. If the nails had been driven into the palms of the hands, under the extreme weight, they would have ripped out between the fingers.
First, a nail would have been driven into His arm on one side, and then the other. The legionnaire would make sure that His arms were not pulled too tightly, allowing flexion and movement. With this done, the patibulum was then raised and affixed to the stripe. The next stage involved the nailing of the feet; this was also a deliberate action. The third nail had to be driven through both feet, which were turned outward so the nail could be hammered inside the Achilles tendon. With His knees slightly flexed Jesus was now crucified. As He slowly sagged down, He would have tried to support His weight with the muscles of His legs, an impossible position to maintain. In some cases, the victims’ legs were broken, so that they couldn’t support themselves in this way. Eventually more and more weight was placed upon the nails. The method the Romans had perfected ensured that crucifixion victims would hang painfully until their diaphragm went into spasm and they literally suffocated to death.
What an incredible price He paid for our sins!
