The Fed knows that the only things propping up American markets are free money and blind faith by the public that banks and government will act to stop any pain or economic suffering, should such a potential for crisis arise. When the free money is gone and that faith disappears, then we will have an epic catastrophe on our hands. The globalists within the Fed know this, and they want this – at least , they want a controlled version of this. The elites NEED the fall of the current U.S. system exactly because this will make way for the rise of what they often term the “great economic reset.” This reset is the next stage in the plan for total global economic centralization.
the very notion of an interest rate hike by the Federal Reserve in September, such an event will trigger extensive outflows from stock markets and herald the end of the “new normal.” Again, why would the banksters do this? Why not keep interest rates at a constant near zero? It is not as if there is any public pressure to raise rates; in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Why is the Fed ignoring the hundreds of signals showing that the U.S. is in a recession and pushing ahead with discussion of interest rate hikes despite what one might logically conclude would be in the Fed’s best interest?
You see, Americans are meant to play the role of the spoiled imperialists who are finally getting what we deserve, an economic punch in our tender parts. We are the new Rome, bread and circuses and all. And when the U.S. comes crashing down like Europe, the Fabians will be there yet again to admonish the greed inherent in national sovereignty and the destructive aspirations of power that must be squelched by a more evenhanded global political system. I don’t really know how many people out there realize this, but we are meant to play the bad guys in the global theater being put on by the elites. Americans are the villains, the rest of the world plays the role of innocent victim, and globalist centers like the IMF and the BIS are meant to play the heroes, coming to the rescue of humanity when all appears lost.
Whatever pain we do feel tomorrow, or the next day, or the next decade, remember who it was that caused it all: the international banks and their globalist political counterparts
I have never done anything like this before. Ever since I started The Economic Collapse Blog in late 2009, I have never issued any kind of “red alert” for any specific period of time. As an attorney, I was trained to be level-headed and to only come to conclusions that were warranted by the evidence. So this is not something that I am doing lightly. Based on information that I have received, things that I have been told, and thousands of hours of research that have gone into the publication of more than 1,300 articles about our ongoing economic collapse, I have come to the conclusion that a major financial collapse is imminent. Therefore, I am issuing a RED ALERT for the last six months of 2015.
The period of relative stability that we have been enjoying is ending. What comes next is going to lead us into the worst period of time in modern American history. I wish that I was wrong about this..
In order to “help” Greece, since 2010, we’ve seen fiscal transfers and foreign intervention into its domestic economic policies. Greece’s debt to GDP ratio is now around 180% to GDP, while a lot of the bailout cash has merely served to bail out banks, as Open Europe already warned in 2012.
Regardless of whether one thinks the Eurozone should be broken up or not: if it can only survive through continuous transfers, states mingling into each other’s national policy choices, which strains once-beneficial relations between European countries, it may not be such a great idea to continue with it. Those who believe that if only we do a few more transfers, everything may turn quiet, have been trying for five years. There will be no calm in a transfer union which lacks sufficient political unity. But perhaps the euro can survive, without transfers. Those who believe so, and I doubt that they’re right, may now try Grexit to prove their point.
Before we start on the details, here is a quick summary of the turmoiling this week…
Total and utter carnage in bond land today and this week…
Chinese stocks worst 2 week drop ever (CHINEXT -25%, Shenzhen -20%, Shanghai -19%, IPO -18.5%)
Greek Stocks best week since post-Lehman dead-cat bounce (fell 37% after that)
Trannies down 6 of last 7 weeks to 8-month lows
As the divergence between Industrials and Transports is getting insane…
Nasdaq worst week in last 8 weeks (after record highs)
S&P closed below 50DMA and tested 100DMA intraday
Biotechs worst week since May
USD Index best week in last 5 weeks
Copper best week in last 8 weeks
Gold worst week since March
30Y TSY Futures lowest weekly close since July 2014
10Y TSY Futures lowest close in 2015
7Y, 10Y, 30Y TSY Yield highest since Oct 2014
5Y Yield highest weekly close since Jan 2014
So suddenly – given no change in monetary policy machinations this week and no data to really spook or spectaculize the markets – everything was driven by Greek fears…
Remember Monday when “Greece was Rescued”… yeah…
Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo The POTUS Homos Sexual Pride Clown Quote:
>>>>>>>”justice that arrives like a thunderbolt”<<<<<<<
^^^And now, that judgment calls for a bolt of lightening to come and strike everyone that accepts the Antichrist NWO 666 Homosexual Image of the Drag Queen Obozo Beast dead.
Rest assured, this ruling, and such a statement from the evil Antichrist bastard, Obozo the 911 Clown, mocks our Father in Christ utterly.
This is a fulfillment of prophecy that just came to pass today, confirmed by the leader of the most powerful military force on Earth, now become Antichrist Gay Pride. If the U.S. military force did not exist as the Antichrist proxy military force, Israel would not now exist and the Antichrist would not meet his end in Israel, as it is written in Daniel. America is Egypt in the day of Jeremiah, and Jerusalem is Sodom and Egypt, as it is written in Revelation. Consider the absence of Egypt coming to help defend Israel against the invading force lead to Israel becoming Babylon, fallen, captive for a 70 generation ”Shemitah” Harbinger judgment period of time.
Sodom & Gomorrah:’Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens’ Genesis 19:24.’Turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example
Now it’s the end time, and the tribulation time of Jerusalem, Jerusalem become a trembling cup, the Cup of Fornication, the cup of Sodom and Egypt, where also Christ Yahshua was crucified. America is ”Sodom and Egypt” now, just as is Jerusalem and Israel. Every Saint of our Father in Christ within America and Israel now must endure government that stands as the Antichrist spirit abomination which makes desolate.
Supreme Court Legalizes Antichrist Homosexual Marriage Image Of The 666 Beast Nationwide In 5:4 Decision – Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo The 911 POTUS Clown Makes Statement Says The Elimination Of The Biblical Image Of The Bride And Bridegroom Has Been Overcome Like Lightening Fallen From The Heights
US Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Friday in favour of Antichrist Homosexual marriage image of Sodom claiming constitutional grounds for a union that cannot justify it’s existence.
And that’s that. Obozo, as usual, gets his way. It was predictable, really. Having abandoned the meaning of words within the English language, the Supreme Court is now free to ignore the actual text of laws and pretend things were written that never were.
After recognizing PA as a ‘state,’ Petrus Romanus Pope Francis’s supposedly apolitical Vatican signs treaty with ‘Antichrist Palestine’ before it does so with Israel.
The Vatican on Friday signed an historic first accord with “Antichrist Palestine,” two years after officially recognizing the Palestinian Authority (PA) as a state.
The accord, a treaty covering the life and activity of the Church in Judea and Samaria, was the first since the Vatican made the controversial step of recognition in February 2013. It also recognizes the PA as having authority in eastern Jerusalem, the undivided capital of the Jewish state.
The treaty, which took 15 years of negotiations to complete, was agreed in principle last month and condemned by Israel as a setback for the peace process.
Signing international treaties unilaterally is a breach of the 1993 Oslo Accords which created the PA.
Israel’s Foreign Ministry responded to the move, expressing its “regret regarding the Vatican decision to officially recognize the Antichrist Palestinian Authority as a state, in the agreement signed today,” spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said in a statement.
“This hasty step damages the prospects for advancing a peace agreement, and harms the international effort to convince the PA to return to direct negotiations with Israel,” he said. “We also regret the one sided texts in the agreement which ignore the historic rights of the Jewish people in the Land of Israel and to the places holy to Judaism in Jerusalem.”
“Israel cannot accept the unilateral determinations in the agreement which do not take into account Israel’s essential interests and the special historic status of the Jewish people in Jerusalem,” he added. “Israel will study the agreement in detail, and its implications for future cooperation between Israel and the Vatican.”
The Vatican’s recognition of “Antichrist Palestine” followed a November 12 vote in favor of recognition by the UN General Assembly, although the Vatican is supposed to be an apolitical religious body.
Vatican officials have described it as reflecting the Church’s desire to see the conflict in the Holy Land resolved by a “two-state” solution.
The PA considers the Vatican one of 136 countries to have recognized “Antichrist Palestine” as a state, although the number is disputed and several recognitions by what are now European Union member states date back to the Soviet era.
In contrast to its rush to sign accords with the PA, the Vatican has had diplomatic relations with Israel since 1993 but has yet to conclude an accord on the Church’s rights in the Jewish state which has been under discussion since 1999.
Last month, the Vatican declared that it would canonize “Antichrist Palestinian saints,” and during the pope’s visit to Israel last May he made an unexpected stop at the security barrier between Jerusalem and Bethlehem in Judea to pray at a section with “Petrus Romanus Pope we need to see someone to speak about justice. Bethlehem look (sic) like Warsaw ghetto. Free Antichrist Palestine” spray-painted on it.
Persecution of Christians ignored
The agreement appears to ignore the fact that Christians have been systematically persecuted under the PA, which has caused the Christian population in Bethlehem to nearly disappear from 60% in 1990 to 15% last year.
According to Justus Reid Weiner of Hebrew University, in July 2012, a court in Jericho sentenced a Christian to a month of imprisonment for eating in public during Antichrist Ramadan. “Five other people were also arrested for the same conduct. The chairman of the PA Supreme Court for Antichrist Sharia Law stated: ‘We have to monitor the streets, and severely punish anyone who eats in public during Antichrist Ramadan. This is the responsibility of the security forces…I call upon other non-Muslims to be considerate of Antichrist Muslims’ feelings.”
This is in sharp contrast to Western societies, where the majority is usually called upon to be considerate of the minority.
“The Antichrist Palestinian Land Law prescribes the death penalty for selling land to Jews. Various Christians have testified that it is also enforced if land is sold to Christians. Several Christian owners have been extorted to give up their land to Antichrist Muslims. In practice, the legal system in the Antichrist Palestinian territories provides them no recourse,” said Weiner.
The jurist added: “Steve Khoury, Pastor of the First Baptist Church of Bethlehem, said in May 2013, that Christians are facing continuous harassment. Due to this, many of them refrain from bearing crosses in public and carrying Bibles. He added that they are often told by Antichrist Muslims to ‘Convert to Antichrist Islam. It’s the true and right religion.’ Khoury’s church has been fire-bombed fourteen times.”
“In December 2013,” Weiner continued, “Samir Qumsieh, a Christian community leader from Beit Sahour near Bethlehem provided several examples of the intimidation the Christian community faces. He showed some examples of souvenirs sold by Christians around Bethlehem’s Manger Square, including t-shirts of the Church of Nativity which do not bear crosses as would be customary. On another occasion Qumsieh stated: ‘We are harassed but you would not know the truth. No one says anything publicly about the Antichrist Muslims. This is why Christians are running away.’”
We wonder if the media will blast that Antichrist Communist Chinese stocks have lost $2 trillion in 2 weeks with the same euphoria as they explained how Antichrist Communist Chinese stocks crossed $10 trillion in market cap precisely two weeks ago.
Following yesterday’s furious market drop in Antichrist Communist Chinese stocks, just before the overnight open, Morgan Stanley came out with a much distributed report urging investors “Not to buy this dip”, and so they didn’t. As a result, the Shanghai Composite imploded, at one point trading down 8% while the Chinext and Shenzhen markets crashed even more. This was the single biggest Shanghai Composite one-day drop since 2007, and with a close at 4192.87 the SHCOMP is now on the verge of a bear market, down 19% from its June 12 highs. Antichrist Communist China’s second largest market, Shenzhen, is now officially in a bear market.
margin debt is usually a coincident if not lagging indicator to the market as such we doubt there is much information to be gleaned here aside from concluding that the mania phase in Antichrist Communist China has finally popped and at this point it is merely damage control.
Bloomberg confirmed as much, reporting that as panicked investors sought the reassurance of the communist party through its outlet, the Xinhua website, only not to find much solace or clarity: “Yao Lina, an accountant in Shanghai, is looking for clues in the state media before deciding whether to get back into stocks. She sold everything last week. “The tone from the state media is particularly helpful to retail investors like me, as I have a job to do and am pretty busy,” said Yao, 35. “Antichrist Communist China’s stock market is really different from other countries. The government surely has some measures to control the movement.”
Actually by that definition it’s not different at all. So what did Antichrist Communist Chinese investors find?
The recent quiet has prompted speculation that Antichrist Communist Chinese authorities are willing to tolerate greater market volatility. On Tuesday, for instance, the Shanghai Composite Index fell as much as 4.8 percent before more than wiping out its losses in the biggest same-day recovery in eight years.
Not long ago, Xinhua and others leapt into action when the market swooned. In January and again in May, Xinhua responded to steep declines within hours. Its reassuring takeaway: the record rally was alive and well. In both instances, the Shanghai index rebounded more than 7 percent within a week.
Given that history, many looked to the state media after the index plunged 6.4 percent last Friday. So far, Xinhua has provided no take on what that decline might mean. The Shanghai Composite sank another 7.4 percent on Friday to the lowest level in seven weeks.
So first Beijing blows its biggest stock bubble since 2007 and now it allows it to pop? Surely this will have a tremendous impact on Antichrist Communist China’s Q2 economy.
In any event, for Antichrist China Friday is now over, as are the most disastrous two weeks in trading history.
And now all eyes shift to Brussels and the ongoing Greek drama where there is relatively little to report as there are no formal talks ahead of tomorrow’s latest “deadline” to get a Greek deal done ahead of the Monday market open as Merkel demands.
Turns Out Tom Horn Was Right After All –The Scientific Pantheist Behind Petrus Romanus’ Environmental Encyclical Believes In Gaia, Not God, And Depopulation Is Just One Part Of Their Frightening Vision
If anyone were to ask the Court, in response to this ruling, standing on one apposing question alone, ”am I free and independent or am I bound to the New World Order of this courts socialist claim?”, the Court’s ruling in this case declares their response is ”certainly not anymore”. Nobody can now disagree with that fact. This case prohibits the court from affirming the freedom and independence of all individual Americans.
This case proves Americans are not free and independent in the eyes of the government. This case requires Americans, that still believe they are recognized as free and independent, to be recognized as criminals in the eye of the government. That is a fact.
As it now stands, the government, and ”it’s” defenders, do not serve or protect Americans as free and independent individuals. The government serves it’s self, and this case proves that. The government holds liberty, freedom and independence in contempt. The government is at war against the individual.
May everyone that recognizes the current American government, and recognizes this ruling, go to Hell.
“penalty” means tax, “further [Medicaid] payments to the State” means only incremental Medicaid payments to the State, “established by the State”means not established by the State) will be cited by litigants endlessly, to the confusion of honest jurisprudence. And the cases will publish forever the discouraging truth that the Supreme Court of the United States favors some laws over others, and is prepared to do whatever it takesto uphold and assist its favorites.
^^^The Soulless Corporate Supreme Court is out of order, and this dissenting opinion proves that. The Court does not server to upon hold The Constitution. The court represents the Antichrist New World Order. It is fascist. The court does not recognize individual liberty. This ruling proves that. It has established a new socialist order at the expense of freedom and independence and does not recognize anyone that does. This means Americans cannot recognize the courts claim. Now every American is forced to defend themselves against this government and the court.
The Court, the Legislative Branch and the Executive Branch now stand in full contempt of ”we the people”. It is time to dissolve this government. America is a prison.
The American government is now a threat to the American people completely. The State of the Union is no longer recognizable as a Constitutional Republic, therefore the government is, beyond the shadow of doubt, affectively at war against the people.
Nobody can rightly say ”God bless America” at this point, to the contrary, ”May God judge America”.
Public institutions are now devoted to serving their own vested interests or the interests of private financial Elites.
Though we may think of collapse in terms of ATMs not working and rampaging mobs, collapse actually starts with the intangible loss of faith in public institutions: elected officials, law enforcement, the justice system and the agencies of financial regulation (anti-trust, etc.).
Unsurprisingly to those who discern the structural rot of the status quo, Americans No Longer Believe In Their Institutions:
“Americans’ confidence in most major U.S. institutions remains below the historical average for each one,” a Gallup spokesman said in a news release. All in all, it’s a picture of a nation discouraged about its present and worried about its future, and highly doubtful that its institutions can pull America out of its trough.
Only 8 percent have confidence in Congress, the lowest of all institutions rated. No wonder, given the Congressional credo that we have to pass this bill to find out what’s in it.The latest monstrosity that is cloaked in secrecy and mumbo-jumbo is the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which Ellen Brown rightly describes as Straight out of Alice in Wonderland:
The terms of the TPP and the TiSA are so secret that drafts of the negotiations are to remain classified for four years or five years, respectively, after the deals have been passed into law. How can laws be enforced against people and governments who are not allowed to know what was negotiated?
If the Trans-Pacific Partnership is so good for the average American, then why not let us read it and be persuaded by the document itself? Instead, the vast machinery of the American central state is devoted to maintaining the secrecy of the bill and crushing all opposition with threats that are no longer even veiled.
One of the 39 senators who voted against the TPP, Jeff Sessions, concluded “They Won The Vote, But Lost The Trust Of The American People”
Americans increasingly believe that their country isn’t serving its own citizens. They need look no further than a bipartisan vote of Congress that will transfer congressional power to the Executive Branch and, in turn, to a transnational Pacific Union and the global interests who will help write its rules.
The same routine plays out over and again. We are told a massive bill must be passed, all the business lobbyists and leaders tell how grand it will be, but that it must be rushed through before the voters spoil the plan. As with Obozocare, the politicians meet with the consultants to craft the talking points—not based on what the bill actually does, but what they hope people will believe it does.
And when ordinary Americans who never asked for the plan, who don’t want the plan, who want no part of the plan, resist, they are scorned, mocked, and heaped with condescension.
Washington broke arms and heads to get that 60th vote–not one to spare–to impose on the American people a plan which imperils their jobs, wages, and control over their own affairs. It is remarkable that so much energy has been expended on advancing the things Americans oppose, and preventing the things Americans want.
No wonder Americans have lost faith in their institutions: those institutions are now devoted to serving their own vested interests or the interests of private financial Elites.
This same loss of trust is underway in Europe. The entire Greek debt issue could have been resolved with fewer losses and much less suffering if Greece had defaulted on the private bank debt in 2010.
But with the complicity of the public institutions that were supposed to serve the citizens’ interests, private banks quickly shifted the vast majority of the Greek debt to the taxpayers: If Greece Defaults, Europe’s Taxpayers Lose.
the debt in 2009–mostly private:
the debt in 2015–almost all public debt on the backs of taxpayers:
When institutions serve the interests of the few at the expense of the many, democracy is just a label slapped on financial totalitarianism. In case you missed it, here is Smith’s Neofeudalism Principle #1:: “If the citizenry cannot replace a dysfunctional government and/or limit the power of the financial Aristocracy at the ballot box, the nation is a democracy in name only.”
Critics of the Pacific trade deal said Wednesday’s vote would diminish lawmakers’ ability to shape a better trade deal when it comes before Congress.
“This body should not give up its authority to make better trade agreements,” Sen. Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio) said on the Senate floor Wednesday. “We’ve seen big promises and bad results on trade issue after trade issue after trade issue after trade issue.”
Moments ago, the passage of “Obozotrade” was assured when in 60-38 vote, the Senate cleared the “fast track” passage of the TPP also known as the Trans Promotion Authority with no votes to spare, ending the president’s long struggle to lift the measure out of the political quicksand that repeatedly came close to trapping it in both chambers.
There was much drama, even more theater, but in the end the lobbying corporations which we laid out previously in the chart below, won. We are still shocked at how cheap it costs them to buy both the senate and the house.
The details are well known to most but for anyone unfamiliar here is the WSJ with a simple recap: the legislation will give Obozo “fast track” authority that allows him to submit trade deals to Congress for an up-or-down vote without amendments. Negotiators have said that process is crucial to completing the 12-nation trade deal with countries around the Pacific Ocean, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
“My standard for any trade agreement is that it must create good-paying 21st century jobs, increase the paychecks of American workers, and it must do so recognizing the relationship between commerce and climate,” Mrs. Pelosi wrote.
Already approved by the House, the bill now heads to the White House for Mr. Obozo’s signature. Its passage delivers a rare legislative victory for the second-term president whose agenda has largely stalled in a Congress now fully controlled by Republicans.
Supporters said the bill would boost the U.S. economy by clearing a path for a trade deal with 11 other countries, representing about 40% of global gross domestic product.
It won’t, in fact it will eliminate even more lower-paying jobs and eviscerate what little is left of America’s lower middle class. However, as it leads to job losses it will provide the US big pharma, who were revealed as some of the largest backers behind the TPP, with several more years of record profits even as the cost of medicines around the globe skyrockets.
What is perhaps most surprising is who the decisive vote came from for yesterday’s cloture vote on TPP. As George Rasley reports, it was none other than GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio’s vote during Tuesday’s Senate vote that was decisive:
Yesterday’s procedural vote in the Republican-controlled Senate to give Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Trade Promotion Authority, or “fast track” as it used to be called, passed by just one vote – that of Florida’s Republican Senator and presidential aspirant Marco Rubio.
Why did Rubio vote to give Obozo more power? No one knows for certain, but Senator Jeff Sessions, in a statement released after the vote shared some insight into the dynamics of what went on on Capitol Hill prior to the vote.
“Americans increasingly believe that their country isn’t serving its own citizens. They need look no further than a bipartisan vote of Congress that will transfer congressional power to the Executive Branch and, in turn, to a transnational Pacific Union and the global interests who will help write its rules.
“The same routine plays out over and again. We are told a massive bill must be passed, all the business lobbyists and leaders tell how grand it will be, but that it must be rushed through before the voters spoil the plan. As with Obozocare and the Gang of Eight, the politicians meet with the consultants to craft the talking points—not based on what the bill actually does, but what they hope people will believe it does. And when ordinary Americans who never asked for the plan, who don’t want the plan, who want no part of the plan, resist, they are scorned, mocked, and heaped with condescension.
“Washington broke arms and heads to get that 60th vote—not one to spare—to impose on the American people a plan which imperils their jobs, wages, and control over their own affairs. It is remarkable that so much energy has been expended on advancing the things Americans oppose, and preventing the things Americans want.
“For instance: thousands of loyal Americans have been laid off and forced to train the foreign workers brought in to fill their jobs—at Disney, at Southern California Edison, across the country. Does Washington rush to their defense? No, the politicians and the lobbyists rush to move legislation that would double or triple the very program responsible for replacing them”
Where were those Disney workers located you might ask? Why in Marco Rubio’s home state of Florida, where some 250 Orlando-based workers were not only let go and replaced by cheaper (and younger) foreign workers – they were also required to train their foreign worker replacements.
“I just couldn’t believe they could fly people in to sit at our desks and take over our jobs exactly,” one former worker, who wasn’t named and is now unemployed, told The New York Times. “It was so humiliating to train somebody else to take over your job. I still can’t grasp it.”
Cost efficiency in a globalized economy some may say, and they could well be right; however in an economy as depressed as the US is, fabricated stock market gains aside, the last thing the fraying fabric of social stability needs is millions more laid off even with the BLS’s best double, triple, and quadruple seasonally-adjusted intentions to mask the underlying reality.
And while Sessions understandably laments the failure of US democracy once again, and the encroaching fascism of the deep (police) state, corporations promptly came out to gloat.
Finally, for those curious what today’s Senate roll call was, it is shown below. The most amusing thing: after voting Yes on the yesterday’s just as critical cloture vote, Rubio decided not to vote today. So how did the GOP get the required 60 votes? They had Corker, who did not vote yesterday, step in for Rubio who can now tell the public one of two stories: that he [voted|did not vote] for the TPA… depending on who the audience is.
why does anyone listen to these idiots anyway?
The Senate on Wednesday gave final approval to legislation granting Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 Clown enhanced power to negotiate major trade agreements with Asia and Europe, sending the president’s biggest end-of-term legislative priority to the White House for his signature.
In today’s consequence-less world – where only the poor are punished – news that a top official at a controversial U.S. export finance agency deleted text messages sent within days of the 2014 midterm elections after a watchdog group filed an open records request for the messages, will come as no surprise whatsoever. The ‘excuse’ given by Ex-Im Bank’s chief of staff Scott Schloegel – because as we saw yesterday, there is no accountability – he “deleted, by mistake, the messages on my phone for the period in question.” Most transparent administration ever…
With funding for the Ex-Im Bank is set to expire at the end of the month, and Congressional Republicans indicating that that they will allow it to do so, effectively shutting down the agency, the controversial crony capitalism creating agency will continue to make headlines. But as Free Beacon reports, the details may never actually come out as to just what this group did…
The watchdog group, Cause of Action, filed a Freedom of Information Act request on Nov. 14 asking for text messages sent or received by top officials at the U.S. Export-Import Bank from Nov. 2 to Nov. 8. said the deletion amounts to “unlawful destruction of federal records” in a legal complaint filed on Wednesday.
Ex-Im responded months later, saying in a May reply that messages from Scott Schloegel, the chief of staff and senior vice president, “were accidentally deleted on approximately January 1, 2015,” more than a month after Cause of Action filed its FOIA request.
Schloegel signed a sworn declaration in March attesting that he “deleted, by mistake, the messages on my phone for the period in question.”
“The fact that a top official at the Export-Import Bank deleted his text messages several weeks after our organization asked to see them raises serious questions,” Dan Epstein, Cause of Action’s executive director, said in a statement. “Furthermore, it’s puzzling that it took the Bank another four months to let us know that this happened.”
We leave it to “Cause of Action”‘s Epstein to conclude:
“The public deserves to know what their government is up to, and we will work tirelessly to continue to hold these federal agencies accountable.”
Indeed it does.
GEOMAGNETIC STORM WARNING: NOAA forecasters estimate a 80% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on June 24th when another CME is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field. The intensity of the storm is hard to predict. It could range from mild to severe. Stay tuned for updates–and get ready by signing up for aurora alerts: text or voice.
THE SOLSTICE STORM: The current solar cycle has not been good to sky watchers. Years of weak solar activity have produced few widespread displays of the aurora boreais. The Solstice Storm of 2015 changed all that. A series of CMEs hit Earth’s magnetic field on June 22nd, producing a severe G4-class geomagnetic storm.
Six months after the massacre at Charlie Hebdo that left 12 dead in Paris, France was hit by what looks to be another terrorist attack on Friday.
According to multiple reports, two men drove a car into the entrance of an Air Products factory in southeastern France triggering multiple explosions. A decapitated head covered in Arabic writing was pinned to the factory’s gate.
One suspect is now in custody. Some reports suggest he was carrying an Antichrist ISIS (false) flag.
Francois Hollande will take a break from the Greek drama and fly back to France from Brussels to address the media and assess the situation. “The attack bears the hallmarks of a terrorist attack,” the French President said.
The Antichrist Islamic State (ISIS) on Monday hanged two youths after accusing them of eating during daylight hours in the Antichrist Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said.
“Residents of the village of Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province reported that IS hanged from a crossbar two boys aged under 18 near the HQ of the Hissba”, the Antichrist jihadist police, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told the AFP news agency.
“The children have been suspended by ropes from a pole since noon, and they were still there in the late evening,” he added.
“Apparently, they were caught eating,” Abdel Rahman continued.
A placard was attached to the bodies reading “They broke the fast with no religious justification”.
Throughout the month of Antichrist Ramadan, which began on Thursday, believers abstain from eating and drinking from dawn until sunset.
Antichrist ISIS, which controls swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq where it has created a self-proclaimed Antichrist “caliphate”, advocates an extreme view of the application of Antichrist Islamic law, or Antichrist sharia.
Steps taken by Antichrist ISIS against violations of Antichrist Islamic include a ban on mannequins in shop displays as well as a ban on singing and dancing at weddings.
The Antichrist jihadists do not hesitate to impose brutal punishments including beheadings, stonings, floggings and crucifixions.
^^^Notice the consistent prophetic warning concerning Antichrist ISIS coming from Petrus Romanus Netanyahu 911 And Obozo The 911 POTUS Clown. Antichrist ISIS is the theme, and all three men happen to be the exact prophetic fulfillment of the Antichrist power and False Prophet. Netanyahu 911, who spoke in the U.S. Capitol Dome:
the Capitol is the only government building referred to as ”The Temple” and the dome AKA ”The Womb of ISIS”, where in this case legislation is established (consider the rise of ISIS well armed and funded post Skull&Bones Bush 1991 911 Speeches and the rise of the Shemitah Isaiah 9:10 One World Trade) established, and where the U.N. founders goal now being articulated this September by Antichrist NWO 666 Petrus Romanus; who ”IS” on board with >>>their<<< ”500”-th ”Day(s)” Of Atonement ”Climate Chaos” >>>occult global agenda<<< which has aborted the Constitution and corrupted the Earth) with Fukushima nuclear time bomb(s) that have already destroyed 1/3 of the ocean water etc…)
Netanyahu 911 ”IS” the human host scriptural prophetic image of ”The Antichrist” who ends up meeting his end in Israel, the one who is given the power to kill ”The Two Witnesses” in Jerusalem, The City of 7 Hills. One the Two Witnesses shall be Elijah. The Two Witnesses shall proclaim the last preaching of the revelation and imminent return of Yahshua Christ Jesus The Messiah etc… All three men, Netanyahu 911 Obozo The 911 POTUS Clown and Petrus Romanus, perfectly fulfill the Antichrist leaping frog reality of the Antichrist and False Prophet combining with Obozo The 911 Clown as the military Proxy of the Antichrist. THE PROPHETIC ANTICHRIST SPIRIT OF THESE THREE HUMAN HOSTS IS THE OBVIOUS PROPHETIC THREAT!!!! THEY NEED THEIR ONE WORLD TRADE WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION EVENT!!! ”They” are as Legion.
This is beyond obvious!!! They have everything in place, and the timing of ”ISIS” ”IS” PERFECT! These assholes are the Antichrist leaders given the prophetic strong delusion because they don’t love the Truth, and they are condemned by our Father in Christ as a result. Israel is the prophetic ”Antichrist” Masonic Occult ”key point of” the New World ”Order” out of Chaos -United Nation Global Climate Agenda. The prophetic ”want” of Babylon requires the destruction of a City. Consider the destruction of Damascus is now being fulfilled because of the Antichrist NWO 666 ISIS Climate Change United Nations GloBAAL Israel Palestine ”Peace & Security” Agenda ”leaping frog” reality measured under the prophetic celestial signs and terrestrial geopolitical and economic engineered climate chaos timed with the prophetic Shemitah Harbinger and end time 6000 Year Jubilee era of terrible Antichrist era tribulation before the great Day of The Lord’s return for the Bride etc…
The list of intelligence that could be posted about all this is staggering, and if anyone looks back over history’s shoulder(also consider that the fallen angel offer of temptation has murdered all of humanity), on this site, you shall discover and confirm the 911 Inside Job, and then some, leaving NO DOUBT WHATSOEVER THAT THE PROPHETIC TRIBULATION ”IS” ABOUT TO START IN THE COMING MONTHS OF 2015-16.

Venus and Jupiter have been drawing nearer to each other in the sky all month. Friday and Saturday, after dusk, they will appear to come together and will most likely the brightest objects in the sky, after the sun and moon.
On the evenings of June 19th and 20th, stargazers will find Venus soon after sunset well up in the west. Jupiter will be about 6 degrees to its upper left, though only one-twelfth as bright. (They’ll both be to the lower right of Regulus, the alpha star of the constellation Leo.)
The view will be most dramatic on the 20th, when the two planets and the moon will be bunched closely enough to be covered by an outstretched fist.
While they look to be bumping into one another, they are actually far apart. The moon is closest to us, just 247,000 miles away. Venus is 56 million miles from Earth, and Jupiter is 10 times farther out at just over 550 million miles.
A second, even more dramatic event occurs on June 30th, when Venus and Jupiter will appear so close together – just 1/3 of a degree apart – that they’ll look like a tight, brilliant double star in the evening sky. A small backyard telescope will show both planets in the same field of view.
Jupiter and Venus spend eight evenings within 2 degrees of each other – about a thumb’s width at arm’s length – from June 27th through July 4th.
July 4, 2015 blazing luminous Venus and brilliant Jupiter pair up in the Lion’s Den.

Tide Pool Life Diminishes… an eerie new phenomenon, urchin balding, is attacking purple-spined sea urchins in Orange County tide pools, and local scientists are investigating this new mystery… tide pool conditions have worsened over the last year, said Jayson Smith, a Cal Poly Pomona marine biologist… Where once abalone, lobster and sea stars thrived, now sea hares, octopus, small fish, limpets and mussels seem to be leaving the scene, said Smith. The latest debacle leaves urchins with bald spots, where algae takes root, said Jennifer Burnaford, biology professor at Cal State Fullerton… Scientists have yet to understand the urchin-balding syndrome, said Smith.

“Things are looking pretty poor right now,” he commented. Educators… report seeing fewer urchins at some tide pools and more empty shells. The once-prolific California blue mussels are also becoming increasingly sparse… “We appear to have more than just the sea-star wasting,” [Louise Thornton, chair of Laguna Ocean Foundation] said. “We appear to have something else going on. There’s something going on because the fish are disappearing.”.

Fukushima’s still radiating, self-perpetuating, immeasurable, and limitless, like a horrible incorrigible Doctor Who monster encounter in deep space.
Fukushima will likely go down in history as the biggest cover-up of the 21st Century. Governments and corporations are not leveling with citizens about the risks and dangers; similarly, truth itself, as an ethical standard, is at risk of going to shambles as the glue that holds together the trust and belief in society’s institutions. Ultimately, this is an example of how societies fail.
Tens of thousands of Fukushima residents remain in temporary housing more than four years after the horrific disaster of March 2011. Some areas on the outskirts of Fukushima have officially reopened to former residents, but many of those former residents are reluctant to return home because of widespread distrust of government claims that it is okay and safe.
Part of this reluctance has to do with radiation’s symptoms. It is insidious because it cannot be detected by human senses. People are not biologically equipped to feel its power, or see, or hear, touch or smell it (Caldicott). Not only that, it slowly accumulates over time in a dastardly fashion that serves to hide its effects until it is too late.
Chernobyl’s Destruction Mirrors Fukushima’s Future
As an example of how media fails to deal with disaster blowback, here are some Chernobyl facts that have not received enough widespread news coverage: Over one million (1,000,000) people have already died from Chernobyl’s fallout.
Additionally, the Rechitsa Orphanage in Belarus has been caring for a very large population of deathly sick and deformed children. Children are 10 to 20 times more sensitive to radiation than adults.
Zhuravichi Children’s Home is another institution, among many, for the Chernobyl-stricken: “The home is hidden deep in the countryside and, even today, the majority of people in Belarus are not aware of the existence of such institutions” (Source: Chernobyl Children’s Project-UK).
One million (1,000,000) is a lot of dead people. But, how many more will die? Approximately seven million (7,000,000) people in the Chernobyl vicinity were hit with one of the most potent exposures to radiation in the history of the Atomic Age.
The exclusion zone around Chernobyl is known as “Death Valley.” It has been increased from 30 to 70 square kilometres. No humans will ever be able to live in the zone again. It is a permanent “dead zone.”
Additionally, over 25,000 died and 70,000 disabled because of exposure to extremely dangerous levels of radiation in order to help contain Chernobyl. Twenty percent of those deaths were suicides, as the slow agonizing “death march of radiation exposure” was too much to endure.
Fukushima- The Real Story
In late 2014, Helen Caldicott, M.D. gave a speech about Fukushima at Seattle Town Hall (9/28/14). Pirate Television recorded her speech; here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qX-YU4nq-g
Dr. Helen Caldicott is co-founder of Physicians for Social Responsibility, and she is author/editor of Crisis Without End: The Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe, The New Press, September 2014. For over four decades Dr. Caldicott has been the embodiment of the anti-nuclear banner, and as such, many people around the world classify her as a “national treasure”. She’s truthful and honest and knowledgeable.
Fukushima is literally a time bomb in quiescence. Another powerful quake and all hell could break loose. Also, it is not even close to being under control. Rather, it is totally out of control. According to Dr. Caldicott, “It’s still possible that Tokyo may have to be evacuated, depending upon how things go.” Imagine that!
According to Japan Times as of March 11, 2015: “There have been quite a few accidents and problems at the Fukushima plant in the past year, and we need to face the reality that they are causing anxiety and anger among people in Fukushima, as explained by Shunichi Tanaka at the Nuclear Regulation Authority. Furthermore, Mr. Tanaka said, there are numerous risks that could cause various accidents and problems.”
Even more ominously, Seiichi Mizuno, a former member of Japan’s House of Councillors (Upper House of Parliament, 1995-2001) in March 2015 said: “The biggest problem is the melt-through of reactor cores… We have groundwater contamination… The idea that the contaminated water is somehow blocked in the harbor is especially absurd. It is leaking directly into the ocean. There’s evidence of more than 40 known hotspot areas where extremely contaminated water is flowing directly into the ocean… We face huge problems with no prospect of solution.” (Source: Nuclear Hotseat #194: Fukushima 4th Anniversary – Voices from Japan, March 10, 2015, http://www.nuclearhotseat.com/2468/)
At Fukushima, each reactor required one million gallons of water per minute for cooling, but when the tsunami hit, the backup diesel generators were drowned. Units 1, 2, and 3 had meltdowns within days. There were four hydrogen explosions. Thereafter, the melting cores burrowed into the container vessels, maybe into the earth.
According to Dr. Caldicott, “One hundred tons of terribly hot radioactive lava has already gone into the earth or somewhere within the container vessels, which are all cracked and broken.” Nobody really knows for sure where the hot radioactive lava resides. The scary unanswered question: Is it the China Syndrome?
Following the meltdown, the Japanese government did not inform people of the ambient levels of radiation that blew back onto the island. Unfortunately and mistakenly, people fled away from the reactors to the highest radiation levels on the island at the time.
As the disaster happened, enormous levels of radiation hit Tokyo. The highest radiation detected in the Tokyo Metro area was in Saitama with cesium radiation levels detected at 919,000 becquerel (Bq) per square meter, a level almost twice as high as Chernobyl’s “permanent dead zone evacuation limit of 500,000 Bq” (source: Radiation Defense Project). For that reason, Dr. Caldicott strongly advises against travel to Japan and recommends avoiding Japanese food.
Even so, post the Fukushima disaster, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signed an agreement with Japan that the U.S. would continue importing Japanese foodstuff. Therefore, Dr. Caldicott suggests people not vote for Hillary Clinton. One reckless dangerous precedent is enough for her.
According to Arnie Gundersen, an energy advisor with 39 years of nuclear power engineering experience, as reported in The Canadian on August 15, 2011: “The US government has come up with a decision at the highest levels of the State Department, as well as other departments who made a decision to downplay Fukushima. In April, the month after the powerful tsunami and earthquake crippled Japan including its nuclear power plant, Hillary Clinton signed a pact with Japan that she agreed there is no problem with Japanese food supply and we will continue to buy them. So, we are not sampling food coming in from Japan.”
However, in stark contrast to the United States, in Europe Angela Merkel, PhD physics, University of Leipzig and current chancellor of Germany is shutting down all nuclear reactors because of Fukushima.
Maybe an advanced degree in physics makes the difference in how a leader approaches the nuclear power issue. It certainly looks that way when comparing/contrasting the two pantsuit-wearing leaders, Chancellor Merkel and former secretary of state Clinton.
After the Fukushima blow up, ambient levels of radiation in Washington State went up 40,000 times above normal, but according to Dr. Caldicott, the U.S. media does not cover the “ongoing Fukushima mess.” So, who would really know?
Dr. Caldicott ended her speech on Sept. 2014 by saying: “In Fukushima, it is not over. Everyday, four hundred tons of highly radioactive water pours into the Pacific and heads towards the U.S. Because the radiation accumulates in fish, we get that too. The U.S. government is not testing the water, not testing the fish, and not testing the ambient air. Also, people in Japan are eating radiation every day.”
Furthermore, according to Dr. Caldicott: “Rainwater washes over the nuclear cores into the Pacific. There is no way they can get to those cores, men die, robots get fried. Fukushima will never be solved. Meanwhile, people are still living in highly radioactive areas.”
Fukushima will never be solved because “men die” and “robots get fried.” By the sounds of it, Fukushima is a perpetual radiation meltdown scenario that literally sets on the edge of a bottomless doomsday pit, in waiting to be nudged over.
UN All-Clear Report
A UN (UNSCEAR) report on April 2, 2014 on health impacts of the Fukushima accident concluded that any radiation-induced effects would be too small to identify. People were well protected and received “low or very low” radiation doses. UNSCEAR gave an all-clear report.
Rebuttal of the UNSCEAR report by the German affiliate of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War d/d July 18, 2014 takes a defiant stance in opposition to the UN report, to wit: “The Fukushima nuclear disaster is far from over. Despite the declaration of ‘cold shutdown’ by the Japanese government in December 2011, the crippled reactors have not yet achieved a stable status and even UNSCEAR admits that emissions of radioisotopes are continuing unabated. 188 TEPCO is struggling with an enormous amount of contaminated water, which continues to leak into the surrounding soil and sea. Large quantities of contaminated cooling water are accumulating at the site. Failures in the makeshift cooling systems are occurring repeatedly. The discharge of radioactive waste will most likely continue for a long time.”
“Both the damaged nuclear reactors and the spent fuel ponds contain vast amounts of radioactivity and are highly vulnerable to further earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons and human error. Catastrophic releases of radioactivity could occur at any time and eliminating this risk will take many decades… It is impossible at this point in time to come up with an exact prognosis of the effects that the Fukushima nuclear disaster will have on the population in Japan… the UNSCEAR report represents a systematic underestimation and conjures up an illusion of scientific certainty that obscures the true impact of the nuclear catastrophe on health and the environment.”
Fukushima’s Radiation and the Future
Mari Yamaguchi, Associated Press (AP), June 12, 2015: “Four years after an earthquake and tsunami destroyed Japan’s Fukushima nuclear power plant, the road ahead remains riddled with unknowns… Experts have yet to pinpoint the exact location of the melted fuel inside the three reactors and study it, and still need to develop robots capable of working safely in such highly radioactive conditions. And then there’s the question of what to do with the waste… serious doubts about whether the cleanup can be completed within 40 years.”
“Although the Chernobyl accident was a terrible accident, it only involved one reactor. With Fukushima, we have the minimum [of] 3 reactors that are emitting dangerous radiation. The work involved to deal with this accident will take tens of years, hundreds of years,” Prof. Hiroaki Koide (retired), Kyoto University Research Reactor Institute, April 25, 2015. “It could be that some of the fuel could actually have gone through the floor of the containment vessel as well… What I’ve just described is very, very logical for anyone who understands nuclear engineering or nuclear energy,” which dreadfully spells-out: THE CHINA SYNDROME.
According to the Smithsonian, April 30, 2015: “Birds Are in a Tailspin Four Years After Fukushima: Bird species are in sharp decline, and it is getting worse over time… Where it’s much, much hotter, it’s dead silent. You’ll see one or two birds if you’re lucky.” Developmental abnormalities of birds include cataracts, tumors, and asymmetries. Birds are spotted with strange white patches on their feathers.
Maya Moore, a former NHK news anchor, authored a book about the disaster: The Rose Garden of Fukushima (Tankobon, 2014), about the roses of Mr. Katsuhide Okada. Today, the garden has perished: “It’s just poisoned wasteland. The last time Mr. Okada actually went back there, he found baby crows that could not fly, that were blind. Mutations have begun with animals, with birds.”
The Rose Garden of Fukushima features a collection of photos of an actual garden that existed in Fukushima, Japan. Boasting over 7500 bushes of roses and 50-thousand visitors a year, the Garden was rendered null and void in an instant due to the triple disaster — earthquake, tsunami, and meltdown.
The forward to Maya’s book was written by John Roos, former US Ambassador to Japan 2009-13: “The incredible tale of Katz Okada and his Fukushima rose garden was told here by Maya Moore… gives you a small window into what the people of Tohoku faced.”
Roos’ “small window” could very well serve as a metaphor for a huge black hole smack dab in the heart of civilization. Similarly, Fukushima is a veritable destruction machine that consumes everything in its path, and beyond, and its path is likely to grow. For certain, it is not going away.
Thus, TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company) is deeply involved in an asymmetric battle against enormously powerful unleashed out-of-control forces of E=mc2.
Clearly, TEPCO has its back to the wall. Furthermore, it’s doubtful TEPCO will “break the back of the beast.” In fact, it may be an impossible task.
Maybe, just maybe, Greater Tokyo’s 38 million residents will eventually be evacuated. Who knows for sure?
Only Godzilla knows!
Over two years ago in “Desperately Seeking $11.2 Trillion In Collateral”, Zero Hedge first warned that as a result of relentless central bank monetization of debt, liquidity in bond markets would decline at an ever faster pace even as, paradoxically, these same central banks added “phantom liquidity” (the topic of another post from two years ago) to equity markets in their attempt to artificially inflate stock prices to record levels without fundamental justification.
Sure enough, with the usual 2-5 year delay, in 2015 the primary financial topic sweeping the mainstream financial media and all the “serious” pundits, is the collapse in bond market liquidity.
Some, the more naive ones, blame regulation. Others, such as iconic Citigroup credit strategist Matt King strategist explained – once again – that Dodd Frank is a negligible reason for the total plunge in bond market liquidity which is the result of, just as we warned, central bank intervention and the relentless ascent of algorithmic trading.
But even as everyone is finally arguing about the cause of the plunging bond market liquidity and has no clue how to resolve this biggest nightmare for what once used to be the deepest and most liquidity of markets (at least not without forcing central banks to sell the trillions in bonds they hold, a step which would free up collateral but also result in the biggest market crash ever), a far more ominous question has reappeared. One which, as usual, we asked nearly three years ago: what happens when central banks soak up too much liquidity.
Our answer, at that point, QE will have officially failed, because instead of lowering bond yields – which as a reminder is the primary QE transmission mechanism, one which forces investor to reach not only for yield but also for risk in other asset classes such as equities – any incremental bond purchases will start raising yields as the adverse impact from the illiquidity “premium” surpasses the price appreciation benefit from frontrun central bank buying.
Impossible, you say?
Not only not impossible but in one country it just happened. Sweden, and as Bloomberg sarcastically notes, “It’s probably not what the Riksbank expected.”
What is “it”? Precisely what we said would happen three years ago:
Quantitative easing is supposed to drive down longer-dated yields. But as investors obsess over market depth, the Riksbank’s bond purchases are undermining liquidity and driving Swedish yields higher.
“The financial conditions — the currency and the bond yields — are moving in the wrong direction,” Roger Josefsson, chief economist at Danske Bank A/S in Stockholm, said by phone. The assumption is that “the Riksbank wants yields to go down and the krona to weaken, but it’s been the opposite direction recently. That should pose a problem.”
As can be seen on the chart below, Sweden’s 10-year government-bond yield, which traded as low as 0.2 percent in April, was at 1.1 percent on Tuesday. Its five-year yield was 0.4 percent, after trading below zero just two months ago. And though Swedish yield spreads have narrowed relative to German bonds, investors can still earn about 15 basis points more by holding AAA-rated 10-year notes issued by Sweden than they can holding similar notes from Germany.
Why? Danske Bank explains: “Swedish rates continue to trade strong relative to Germany because of a lack of material in the repo market as a result of the Riksbank’s QE program.”
The Riksbank targets about $10 billion in government bond purchases as it tries to revive consumer-price growth after months of deflation. That’s about 14 percent of the market or 3 percent of Sweden’s gross domestic product. Any efforts to expand asset purchases would deplete Sweden’s already limited sovereign debt supply, SEB AB and Danske Bank have said.
Adding insult to injury, now that the “virtuous QE cycle” is broken, the extra yield is adding to the appeal of the krona. “Since the Riksbank started its bond-purchase program in mid-February, Sweden’s currency has appreciated more than 4 percent against the euro. It’s up 5 percent against Norway’s krone and is 3 percent higher versus the dollar.”
That will make it harder for the bank to prevent disinflation as import prices decline.
And since Swedish QE has now officially broken and every incremental monetization will merely boost yields that much higher as the bonds become ever scarcer, the Riksbank can well proceed to monetize more… only to end up with higher yields… and an even stronger currency!
Which is precisely the opposite of what QE is intended to achieve.
And just like that, for the first time ever we see just how the closed QE loop transitions from virtuous to absolutely vicious, and how suddenly the central bank is left without any recourse to push yields lower as the very mechanism that has been designed for this now is pushing yields higher.
The good news for the rest of the world is that there is still some unencumbered collateral left, and that – at best – the world’s central banks probably have 2-3 years of monetization dry powder left. After that it’s pretty much game over… and the monetary paradrop.
For Sweden, however, it may be far too late. Then again, the locals don’t seem too concerned.
^^^The destructive storm above their head, leading to the consuming pillar of fire, and still they shall not be moved. Truly the unmoved, and unbecoming public, is the drunk captivated Whore Of Babylon gazing in the mirror at her own augmented bosom. The Beast she rides, into the abyss, falls as the prophetic latter rain become the dark pool of illiquidity, which represents the wine of wrath within her cup she holds like a champion football trophy declaring the prophetic Bread and Circus before the burning of Rome.
Much has been said about this coming fall, the highest watch season we have ever seen. September will see a convergence of events unlike anything that has come before.
The danger in getting hyped-up is that should the LORD tarry, many will be discouraged and could lose faith, but on the other hand we are told to watch for His coming and to know the season.
better to blow the trumpet than not. Better to be ready, than have your head in the sand, focused on the cares of the world. While the
Bible does indicate we can’t for sure predict the exact day or hour of Christ’s coming, we most certainly can predict the season and observe the enormous convergence of prophetic events.
Nothing more needs to happen..
And now for the BOMBSHELL: the upcoming convergence of Jupiter and Venus in Leo the Lion on June 30th may in fact truly be the reappearance of the Star of Bethlehem that appeared in 2 BC heralding the first coming of Christ.
As a quick synopsis as to what was discovered regarding Christ’s birth:
1. On Rosh Hashanah, September 11th, 3 BC, the king planet Jupiter entered retrograde around the king star Regulus in Leo the Lion (it circled around it like a halo three times). The date of Christ’s conception?
2. Then Jupiter began moving on again from east to west and after exactly the length of a human gestation (about nine months later) it appeared to form a single star in conjunction with Venus to become the brightest star anyone up to that point had ever seen. This occurred on June 17th, 2 BC. The date of Christ’s birth?
3. From Jerusalem it appeared to move south to Bethlehem where it again stopped (entered retrograde), actually on December 25th, 2 BC.
These events fit with all nine requirements of the Biblical Star of Bethlehem.
We and other watchers have been talking about how Jupiter and Venus were again going to form a single super-bright star in Leo the Lion on June 30th of this year (in one week) just as like what happened on June 17th of 2 BC. Amazing in itself.
That is until a watcher over at RITAN discovered that the Julian calendar date of our June 30th is actually June 17th. The Julian calendar was the calendar in use at the birth of Christ.
In other words, using the same Julian calendar, Christ’s star heralding His advent appeared first on June 17th, 2 BC, and is now appearing again on June 17th, 2015. The is unprecedented, remarkable, and quite frankly amazing, even for a watcher.
Here it is as it appeared on June 17th, 2 BC:
And here it is as it will appear on June 30th this year (June 17th in the Julian calendar):
Though they haven’t taken notice of the Julian calendar line-up, even CBS News is reporting on this upcoming conjunction specifically in relation to the previous 2 BC conjunction.

We don’t need to write to you about the timing and dates, brothers and sisters. 2 You know very well that the day of the Lord is going to come like a thief in the night. 3 When they are saying, “There is peace and security,” at that time sudden destruction will attack them, like labor pains start with a pregnant woman, and they definitely won’t escape.
Him Whom They Have Pierce
10 “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn. 11 On that day the mourning in Jerusalem will be as great as the mourning for Hadad-rimmon in the plain of Megiddo.
37 And again another Scripture says, “They will look on him whom they have pierced.”
According to diplomats familiar with the talks, Antichrist Communist China will help re-engineer Arak, 500 Days Climate Chaos France would help reprocess nuclear waste, and Britain would step in regarding nuclear ”safety and security” for Antichrist Iran, reports Fox News.
A confidential paper obtained by the Associated Press and revealed Wednesday outlines some of the concessions the US and other world powers are offering Antichrist Iran in the nuclear talks that are approaching a June 30 deadline.
According to the eight-page paper, which is dated June 19 and entitled “Civil Nuclear Cooperation,” the US and world powers will give the Islamic regime state-of-the-art nuclear equipment in return for Iran stepping down its nuclear weapons program.
Regarding the secretive underground nuclear facility at Fordo, the documents calls for it to be used in isotope production instead of uranium enrichment. However, critics have noted that isotope production uses the same technology as enrichment and can quickly be appropriated to uranium.
The talks stand ahead of a June 30 deadline but could go past that timeframe as Antichrist Iran continues to refuse to allow inspectors in to covert military sites thought to be used in developing nuclear weapons.
Antichrist Iran has also demanded that all sanctions be immediately lifted after a deal is reached, and vowed to use advanced centrifuges as soon as a deal is signed which would allow it to obtain a nuclear arsenal in weeks.

Pretty much anyone reading this post will be intimately familiar with Jonathan “stupidity of the American voter” Gruber. In case you need a refresher, here’s an excerpt from last fall’s piece, Video of the Day – Obozocare Architect Credits “Lack of Transparency” and “Stupidity of the American People” for Passage of Healthcare Law:
An architect of the federal healthcare law said last year that a “lack of transparency” and the “stupidity of the American voter” helped Congress approve ObozoCare.
He suggested that many lawmakers and voters didn’t know what was in the law or how its financing worked, and that this helped it win approval.
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”
Although the mindset above clearly represents the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Clown Administration’s opinion of the unwashed masses, it naturally went into damage control mode after Mr. Gruber’s comments went viral, insisting that the economist played only a very minor role in crafting and selling Obozocare. Similar to most things that come out of Obozo’s mouth, this was a boldfaced lie.
It seems that the TPP, TTIP and TiSA are not about the sort of “free trade” that would free local businesses to sell abroad. They are about freeing international corporations from the government regulation necessary to protect the economy, the people, and the environment. They are about preserving privatized monopolies and preventing competition from the public sector. And they are about moving litigation offshore into private arbitrary tribunals – the sort of tribunal that might have lost Alice her head, if she had not awakened from her bizarre dream.
A Corporate Coup d’État
What is going on was predicted by David Korten in his 1995 blockbuster, When Corporations Rule The World. Catherine Austin Fitts calls it a “corporate coup d’état.”
This corporate coup includes the privatization and offshoring of the judicial function delegated to the US court system in the Constitution, through Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions that strengthen existing ISDS procedures.
As explained in The Economist, ISDS gives foreign firms a special right to apply to a secretive tribunal of highly paid corporate lawyers for compensation whenever the government passes a law to do things that hurt corporate profits — such things as discouraging smoking, protecting the environment or preventing a nuclear catastrophe.
Creditors “not accepting parametric measures has never happened before. Neither in Ireland, nor in Portugal, nor anywhere. This strange stance can hide two scenarios; they either don’t want an agreement or serve specific interests in Greece,” the official cited Tsipras as saying.”
as we predicted, where either the Greek negotiators will finally enact the “dreaded” pension cuts, or else the Troika will be able to wash its hands of a Greek default and blame it all on Greek intransigence. As a further reminder, at this point it is all about who gets the blame for a “Grexident.”
As a reminder, Tsipras is meeting Wednesday with European Central Bank President Mario Draghi, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in an effort to reach a deal before Greece’s bailout expires and about 1.5 billion euros ($1.7 billion) in payments come due to the IMF on June 30.
Who could have possibly foreseen that the IMF would throw up all over the Greek “proposal”… aside from this post here “Why The IMF Will Reject The Latest Greek Proposal In Just Two Numbers” yesterday afternoon of course. In any event, moments ago Bloomberg reported that just as we wrote here yesterday afternoon, there is no deal and that Greek PM Alexis Tsipras told his associates that creditors not accepting equivalent fiscal measures has never happened before, according to a Greek govt official, who asked not to be named in line with policy.
As for Tsipras suggesting that Troika does not want an agreement, he is absolutely correct. Recall “Goldman’s “Conspiracy Theory” Stunner: A Greek Default Is Precisely What The ECB Wants“… the same Goldman that blessed a Lehman bankruptcy and got precisely what it requested.
In any event, the ball is now in Greece’s court…
his is just an elaborate attempt to hide the fact that Greece’s fate has already been decided by Mario Draghi, whose former employer suggested as much earlier this week.
Last week, following the Fed’s latest rate hike punt, stocks soared higher after realizing that not only is the Fed not ready to hike, but it will almost certainly not hike in September nor December (as the country will be covered by GDP crushing snow then). And despite some modest selling on Friday as the first images of Greek ATM lines spread, the S&P still finished nearly 1% higher for the week.
Any other week this would have been a perfectly normal event but according to Bank of America last week, this was not any other week. In fact, according to BofA’s Jill Hall, “BofAML clients were big net sellers of US stocks in the amount of $4.1bn, following four weeks of net buying. Net sales were the largest since January 2008 and led by institutional clients—after three weeks of net buying, institutional clients’ net sales last week were the largest in our data history.”
as the chart below shows, the “retail” money is hardly that dumb these days, and has been consistently selling all throughout the rally, leaving the “smart money” scrambling who to sell to, and also leading to such amusing demands as Carl Icahn telling AAPL to please buy his stocks. Because nobody else will…
Which begs the question: how is the market just shy of all time highs… we ask rhetorically, of course… It’s Settled: Central Banks Trade S&P500 Futures.
So was this all a pre-Grexit cash out panic? Perhaps, but it also appears to have been quite targeted, with an emphasis on what has become the biggest industry bubble within the broader market: health care. In fact, healthcare selling was the biggest ever:
And the worst news: with everyone else dumping stocks at a (near) record pace, the buyer of last resort, corporate buybacks, are about to enter that most dreaded period of the quarter: the blackout period that surrounds earnings releases. As such, starting this week and continuing for the next month, stock repurchases will grind to a halt.
One can hope that the Bank of Japan and the Swiss National Bank have some serious firepower left to pick up the slack: they are now, quite literally, the buyers of last resort.
Just as we warned earlier in the year, total uncertainty about the future of Greece has enabled a growing sense of moral hazard as “if the nation doesn’t pay its debt, why should we” sweeps across the troubled nation. As Greeks’ tax remittances to the government, which were almost non-existent to begin with, have ground to a halt, so The FT reports, so-called ‘strategic defaults’ have become a way of life among Greece’s formerly affluent middle-class…”I still owe money on the car and motorboat I can’t afford to use. Even a holiday loan I’d forgotten about…I’m living with my mother looking for work and waiting for the bank to come up with another restructuring offer.”
As we detailed earlier this year, it appears taxpayers everywhere are learning from the best: their insolvent governments. In this case, Greek (non) taxpayers have decided to slow down their mandatory remittances to the government even more because the government may just not exist in two short weeks:
Of course, by now everyone knows that the artificially suppressed, “hedonically-modified” and seasonally-adjusted inflationary readings is what has permitted the Fed to not only grow its balance sheet to $4.5 trillion but to keep rates at 0% for 8 years. Because “how will the economy recover if there is no broad inflation”, the Keynesian brains in the ivory tower scream, demanding more, more, more easing just to push inflation higher.
There is only one problem with this: it is all a lie – just ask any average American whose cost of living has soared in the past decade.
Still, with reality diverging so massively from the government’s official data, reality just had to be wrong somehow.
Turns out reality was right all along, as revealed by the latest “State of the Nation’s Housing” report released by the Center for Housing Studies at Harvard, which showed that while inflation among most products and services may indeed be roughly as the Fed and BLS represent it, when it comes to rent – that most fundamental of staple costs – things have never been worse.
According to the report, for American renters 2013 marked another year with a record-high number of cost burdened households – those paying more than 30 percent of income for housing. In the United States, 20.7 million renter households (49.0 percent) were cost burdened in 2013.
It gets worse: a whopping 11.2 million, or more than a quarter of all renter households, had “severe cost burdens, paying more than half of income for housing.” The median US renter household earned $32,700 in 2013 and spent $900 per month on housing costs. Renter housing costs are gross rents, which include contract rents and utilities.
So as more Americans are forced into a limited number of rental units, prices have exploded at a far greater pace than what is officially reported in th shelter or core CPI metric, for all – but especially for those in the lower income buckets: as seen in the lower right chart, the rental “cost burden” of households making under $30,000 is the higest ever, at well over 70%!
But nowhere is the mystery of the “missing” inflation more obvious than in the following interactive map showing that in virtually all major seaboard metro areas, including the major cities in California, New York, and Florida, the number of households with a cost burden is 50% or higher.
So the next time someone, usually either a government bureaucrat or a reporter/drama major masquerading as an “economist” tells you there is no inflation, just show them this map and ask how much of their after tax income do they spend on rent.
We suspect this will be the last time billionaire investor Carl Icahn is invited on CNBC. Having sold CNBC darling NFLX, he crushed the two main memes of CNBC’s raison d’etre – buy stocks, because where else are you going to put your money – “what’s better – making 2% or losing 30% as people did in 2008…right now it’s an extremely dangerous time;” and the next leg of this bull market will come from an improving real economy – “the economy is not picking up, it is artificial due to low interest rates.” The market has way over-estmated how long this will last, Icahn concludes, “keep your powder dry – why do have to own anything risky? It’s just nonsensical.”
“The longer [The Fed] waits to take the patient off the medicine, the more difficult it’s going to be”
Enjoy… (a very quiet CNBC crowd)
. . . the 408-foot spire will bring the building to an iconic 1,776 feet tall
World Trade Center in English Gematria Equals: 1110
The spire was installed atop The New World Order Tower, The One World Government Center….I mean “One World Trade Center” reaching a symbolic 1,776 feet. The Bavarian Illuminati were founded on May 1, 1776. Also keep in mind that it was already 5/11 World Time when the spire was installed. This is a Mega-Ritual my friends and it’s time to seriously Wake Up!! Please check out these very interesting and eye opening links that I have shared below…
The Freedom Tower will be the tallest building in the United States at 1776 feet including its mast. July 4th, 1776 was of course the date the Declaration of Independence was signed.
The pyramidion on top of the Transamerica Pyramid lights up on July 4th. Incidentally the Freedom Tower looks to me like two Trance America Pyramids (as above, so below) merged together if you will.
July 4th is also Aphelion, the day the Earth is farthest from the Sun.
The Bavarian Illuminati was formed also in 1776 on May 1st (Beltane).
Another friend Dr. Mark Gray pointed out that the upper part of the building’s form is known to mathematicians as a square anti-prism (stretched upward):
If prisms split light into a diversity of colors then the antiprism symbolically sucks up all colors of light. Back to the light bearer, or E Pluribus Unum (out of many, one) if you will.
For I am [a]zealous for you with a godly eagerness and a divine jealousy, for I have betrothed you to one Husband, to present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But [now] I am fearful, lest that even as the serpent beguiled Eve by his cunning, so your minds may be corrupted and seduced from wholehearted and sincere and pure devotion to Christ. 4 For [you seem readily to endure it] if a man comes and preaches another Jesus than the One we preached, or if you receive a different spirit from the [Spirit] you [once] received or a different gospel from the one you [then] received and welcomed; you tolerate [all that] well enough!
5 Yet I consider myself as in no way inferior to these [precious] [b]extra-super [false] apostles. 6 But even if [I am] unskilled in speaking, yet [I am] not [unskilled] in knowledge [I know what I am talking about]; we have made this evident to you in all things. 7 But did I perhaps make a mistake and do you a wrong in debasing and cheapening myself so that you might be exalted and enriched in dignity and honor and happiness by preaching God’s Gospel without expense to you? 8 Other churches I have robbed by accepting [more than their share of] support for my ministry [from them in order] to serve you. 9 And when I was with you and ran short financially, I did not burden any [of you], for what I lacked was abundantly made up by the brethren who came from Macedonia. So I kept myself from being burdensome to you in any way, and will continue to keep [myself from being so].
10 As the truth of Christ is in me, this my boast [of independence] shall not be debarred (silenced or checked) in the regions of Achaia (most of Greece). 11 And why? Because I do not love you [do not have a preference for you, wish you well, and regard your welfare]? God perceives and knows that I do! 12 But what I do, I will continue to do, [for I am determined to maintain this independence] in order to cut off the claim of those who would like [to find an occasion and incentive] to claim that in their boasted [mission] they work on the same terms that we do. 13 For such men are false apostles [spurious, counterfeits], deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles (special messengers) of Christ (the Messiah).
14 And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light;
And he shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with the many for one week [seven years]. And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and offering to cease [for the remaining three and one-half years]; and upon the wing or pinnacle of abominations [shall come] one who makes desolate, until the full determined end is poured out on the desolator.
Petrus Romans Pope Francis, will visit the United Nations during its annual conclave of world leaders in September.
The pope’s visit is scheduled for Sept. 25, a day after he addresses the Congress in Washington.
The September gathering will most likely be unusually packed this year because of the United Nations’ 70th anniversary. Governments are expected to adopt binding agreements on climate change and set new development targets for the next 15 years.
Hovering over the session are the war in Syria, the spread of Islamic jihadists across the Middle East
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu 911 of Israel on Sunday rebuffed the French idea of restarting the prophetic Antichrist NWO 666 Israeli-Palestinian peace process with international support and the backing of a United Nations Security Council resolution.
Speaking at a joint news conference with France’s foreign minister, Laurent Fabius, who was visiting the region to advance the French-led initiative, Mr. Netanyahu said: “Peace will only come from direct negotiations between the parties, without preconditions. It will not come from U.N. resolutions that are sought to be imposed from the outside.”
Earlier on Sunday, Mr. Netanyahu had employed sharper language, telling his cabinet ministers in broadcast remarks, “We strongly reject attempts to force international diktat on us in regard to both security and peace.”
These international efforts, Mr. Netanyahu added, failed to address “the security needs of the state of Israel and our other national interests.”
With peace talks stalled for more than a year, France has been sounding out the possibility of beginning the process with the help of Arab states, the European Union and Security Council members, supported by a Security Council resolution that would set parameters for new negotiations on Palestinian statehood and perhaps establish a time frame for them.
Mr. Fabius asked that his effort not be prejudged.
After meeting with the Palestinian Authority president, Mahmoud Abbas, in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Mr. Fabius warned that lack of progress could result in an explosion of violence in the area.
“If we are to succeed, we must discuss these ideas without prior judgment,”
…the following video below, heard from an U.N.waxed ear of a Saint of our Father in Christ able to hear what the spirit ”IS” confirming, ”IS” to be gleaned properly by considering the Antichrist NWO 666 United Nations Climate Chaos 911 Agenda in ”The Light” of the usual suspects ”Weapons Of Mass Destruction” Tenet ”Slam Dunk” lie.
…what is being confirmed ”IS”, instead of the Twin Towers and Pentagon Occult Ritual Shemitah Harbinger timing, that captured the spirit of the general public to support the Iraq invasion and now post withdrawal 7 countries in 5 years Antichrist Arab Spring birth of ”ISIS” reality, this Super Shemitah Harbinger Jubilee time has come. The Big Apple global seismic mass destruction event, required to establish the Antichrist 666 ”covenant with many” ”peace and security” ”climate change” ”New World Order” , provides the ”usual suspects” short term end time tribulation power and authority, and the expense of humanity of course, and the loss of eternal salvation for all those fools that accept and receive in agreement the mark of the beast global borderless system of the Antichrist and Whore of Mystery Babylon.
At this point, if anyone does not understand the spiritual reality leaping like, and as, the ”prophetic 3 Frog Antichrist Spirit among the people and the leaders of the nations and Israel, it’s only because; they are still blind for having 9 of 10 toes and 99.999% of one left not of this world, or they are truly lost forever by the same familiar Antichrist spirit.
When the veil is lifted, the Bridegroom confirms our agreement with our Father in Christ. The Truth is Not a Choice, every knee shall bow.
…not all shall rise in agreement but remain as they were, engulfed by their own will. Their own judgment shall consumed them.
A supermassive black hole that was dormant for 26 years has once again begun devouring material from other the star in its binary system, according to the European Space Agency (ESA).
V404 Cygni, a system in the Milky Way galaxy comprised of a black hole and a star orbiting each other, has again started emitting X-rays and gamma rays after a 26-year sleep, ESA reported.
Erik Kuulkers, a project scientist at ESA, explained that “the behavior of this source is extraordinary at the moment, with repeated bright flashes of light on time scales shorter than an hour, something rarely seen in other black hole systems.”
“In these moments, it becomes the brightest object in the X-ray sky — up to fifty times brighter than the Crab Nebula, normally one of the brightest sources in the high-energy sky,” he said.
The V404 Cygni system is located almost 8,000 light years away in the Cygnus (Swan) constellation of the Milky Way. The black hole’s sudden awakening activity was first spotted by the Burst Alert Telescope on board NASA’s Swift satellite on June 15, 2015; just before asteroid 1566 Icarus’s closest Earth approach on June 16, 2015, staring at the Polaris region of the Big Dipper and then falling through the Big Dipper ”cup” on Father’s Day, the longest day, with the most light, on Summer Solstice.
