9(2-3)15 Gleaning END OF THE GRACE ERA ”IS” COME NWO 666 UN TRIBULATION CLIMATE CHANGE ANTICHRIST AGENDA NOW
On the Thursday edition of TRUNEWS, host Rick Wiles denounces the outrageous jailing of an elected Kentucky county court clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to homosexual couples. It is the beginning of the criminalization of Christianity in Mystery Babylon, formerly known as the United States of America. Retired Lt. Colonel Allen West comments in Part 2 about Chinese warship off the coast of Alaska, Antichrist NWO 666 Barack Obozo The 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown’s damage to national security, and Hillary 911 Clinton’s ability to escape criminal prosecution for mishandling classified national security documents. In Part 3, you’ll hear excerpts from Jim Bakker’s interview of Rick several weeks ago.
Two days ago we reported something which we had anticipated for a long time but nonetheless did not expect to take shape so swiftly: namely, that with Assad’s regime close to collapse and fighting a war on three different fronts (one of which is directly supported by US air and “advisor” forces), Putin would have no choice but to finally intervene in the most anticipated showdown in recent history as “Russian fighter pilots are expected to begin arriving in Syria in the coming days, and will fly their Russian air force fighter jets and attack helicopters against Antichrist ISIS and rebel-aligned targets within the failing state.”
This was indirectly confirmed the very next day when an Antichrist al-Nusra linked Twitter account posted pictures of a Russian drone and a Su-34 fighter jet – the kind which is not flown by the Syrian air force – flying over the Antichrist Nusra-controlled western idlib province.
Another twitter account said to have captured Russian soldiers in Zabadani “while fighting for Assad”
Also, one day after our report, the Telegraph reported that “Syrian state TV reportedly broadcasts footage of Russian soldiers and armoured vehicle fighting alongside pro-Assad troops.” According to the article, “the video footage claimed to show troops and a Russian armoured vehicle fighting Syrian rebels alongside President Bashar al-Assad’s troops in Latakia. It is reportedly possible to hear Russian being spoken by the troops in the footage.”
It added that “a Russian naval vessel was photographed heading south through the Bosphorus strait carrying large amounts of military equipment, according to social media and a shipping blog” while “an unnamed activist with the Syrian rebel group the Free Syrian Army told The Times: “The Russians have been there a long time.”
“There are more Russian officials who came to Slunfeh in recent weeks. We don’t know how many but I can assure you there has been Russian reinforcement.” ”
Then earlier today we got the closest thing to a confirmation from the White House itself which confirmed that “it was closely monitoring reports that Russia is carrying out military operations in Syria, warning such actions, if confirmed, would be “destabilising and counter-productive.”
Obozo spokesman Joshn Earnest essentially confirmed Russia was already operating in Syria when he said that “we are aware of reports that Russia may have deployed military personnel and aircraft to Syria, and we are monitoring those reports quite closely.”
“Any military support to the Assad regime for any purpose, whether it’s in the form of military personnel, aircraft supplies, weapons, or funding, is both destabilising and counterproductive.”
And another confirmation: “a US official confirmed that “Russia has asked for clearances for military flight to Syria,” but added “we don’t know what their goals are.”
“Evidence has been inconclusive so far as to what this activity is.”
Other reports have suggested Russia has targeted Islamic State group militants, who have attacked forces loyal to Russian-backed Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad.
Both the White House and the Pentagon refused to say whether they had intelligence suggesting the reports were accurate.
Of course, what is left unsaid is that since Russia is there under the humanitarian pretext of fighting the evil Antichrist ISIS, the same pretext that the US, Turkey, and the Antichrist Saudis are all also there for, when in reality everyone is fighting for land rights to the most important gas pipeline in decades, the US is limited in its diplomatic recoil.
Indeed as we sarcastically said last week: “See: the red herring that is Antichrist ISIS can be used just as effectively for defensive purposes as for offensive ones. And since the US can’t possibly admit the whole situation is one made up farce, it is quite possible that the world will witness its first regional war when everyone is fighting a dummy, proxy enemy which doesn’t really exist, when in reality everyone is fighting everyone else!”
Which now effectively ends the second “foreplay” phase of the Syrian proxy war (the first one took place in the summer of 2013 when in a repeat situation, Russia was supporting Assad only the escalations took place in the naval theater with both Russian and US cruisers within kilometers of each other off the Syrian coast), which means the violent escalation phase is next. It also means that Assad was within days of losing control fighting a multi-front war with enemies supported by the US, Turkey and Antichrist Saudi Arabia, and Putin had no choice but to intervene or else risk losing Gazprom’s influence over Europe to the infamous Qatari gas pipeline which is what this whole 3 years war is all about.
Finally, it means that the European refugee crisis, which is a direct consequence of the Antichrist ISIS-facilitated destabilization of the Syrian state (as a reminder, Antichrist ISIS is a US creation meant to depose of the Syrian president as leaked Pentagon documents have definitively revealed) is about to get much worse as 2013’s fabricated “chemical gas” YouTube clip will be this years “Refugee crisis.” It will be, and already has been, blamed on Syria’s president Assad in order to drum up media support for what is now an inevitable western intervention in Syria.
The problem, however, has emerged: Russia is already on the ground, and will hardly bend over to any invading force.
Finally, while we have no way of knowing how the upcoming armed conflict will progress, now may be a safe time to take profits on that oil short we recommended back in October, as the geopolitical chess game just shifted dramatically, and with most hedge funds aggressively short, any realization that the middle east is suddenly a far more violent powderkeg – one which may promptly include the Antichrist Saudis in any confrontation – could result in an epic short squeeze.
I am disgusted by the reaction of Christians regarding this whole homo-marriage fiasco. I am disgusted as I read posts on various Facebook pages by “Christians” who think that Kim Davis should either be fired, impeached, or resign because of her religious convictions.
And no, these are not pagans but Christians that believe she is doing something wrong. Kim Davis is standing on the authority of Scripture by declaring that marriage can never be part of a same-sex relationship, and her greatest attackers are “Christians” who side with their pagan neighbors. They believe in the lie of the separation of morality and state.
I am disgusted by the cowardly pastors who stand on the sidelines while this brave, recently-converted Christian, Kim Davis, calls the issue “life and death, heaven and hell” for her. These same doctrinal dolts are the ones who teach that Romans 13 commands absolute obedience to the Devil and his law-breaking acolytes who double as elected officials. I am disgusted that Christians believe we are powerless to do anything to change this nation. I’m disgusted that there are sanctuary cities where immigration laws are ignored but no sanctuary cities where homo-marriage decisions can be ignored.
I am disgusted that most of the lawyers on our side have been convinced that court decisions carry the weight of law. They do not. COURTS CANNOT MAKE LAW! Judicial supremacy is destroying our republic. Krytocracy is an Old Testament term meaning government by judges, and judges rule America today.
I am disgusted that most Christians neither understand nor follow the laws of God. That is why it’s no big deal for them to ignore the laws of God and follow the “laws” of government. The words legal and lawful are not the same. Something that is “unlawful” can be “legalized” but it can never be made “lawful.” Abortion is “legal” but unlawful. The same is true of homo-marriage. “Legal” refers to man-made law. Lawful refers to God-made or natural law. They are not the same. You cannot make a law against gravity any more than “legalizing” abortion makes it “lawful.” Christians are duty-bound to follow God’s law when actions that contradict His laws are made “legal.” Obey God, not man. That is precisely what Kim Davis is doing.
I am disgusted that, for the most part, Christians don’t give a damn about what is going on in our culture. As long as it doesn’t impact them, they see no reason to get upset. But it DOES affect them because it affects the CULTURE. Because of their apathy, their grandchildren will never experience the America that we were so were blessed to grow up in. I’m disgusted that they are hoping to selfishly “escape” the consequences of their apathy rather than fighting to occupy until the Lord returns.
I am discouraged that the harder I work to try and awaken people to the truth, the more immoral things seem to become.
I am discouraged that there are so few vehicles by which the lie of emergent Christianity can be exposed. Pastors jealously guard their pulpits more than they guard their flocks. Christian radio is laced with sugary, feel-good programming.
I am discouraged that Christians today still do not see the dangers of “public” schools. How could a Christian actually believe that the Humanistic schools, where Jesus is illegal, could possibly instill Christian values into their children?
I am discouraged that not 1-in-1000 pastors will speak the truth about the schools.
I am discouraged that there is virtually no “fight” left in Christianity. I am discouraged because those of us who are willing to fight are chastised and marginalized by those who should be joining us.
I am discouraged that Antichrist Planned Parenthood has been exposed for the baby butchers that they are and still most pastors have not said a word about it. I am discouraged that Christians seem to have found the pro-choice position hidden somewhere within the pages of the Scriptures.
I am discouraged that when I put out a call to action most people respond that they will “pray” for us. Why won’t they join us? Praying, alone, is not action. Prayer empowers the action. Do most Christians pray for money and stay in bed, or do they pray for money and then go out and earn it? God blesses the works of your hands, not simply the prayers of your lips.
So I am disgusted and discouraged, but I am on my way to Kentucky. Though none go with me, still I will follow. Kim Davis is probably discouraged and disgusted as well, so I think I will go and stand and hold up her arms. I know the loneliness of persecution, and I understand the price of taking a stand.
Hey, maybe the rapture will occur on my way down and we won’t have to push back. Maybe Mitch McConnell and his buddy Boehner will ride to the rescue. Maybe we can’t win. Maybe our efforts will be in vain.
It sometimes seems so futile, and this is one of those times. As Hillary would say, “what difference, at this point, does it make?”
What difference does it make? I sometimes ask myself the same question. I wonder how the guys in Benghazi would answer that question.
Antichrist Democratic Party fundraiser and Antichrist gay activist Terry Bean made sex-abuse allegations with a 17-year-old boy disappear on Tuesday thanks to a $200,000 settlement offer.
“Mr. Bean offered him over $200,000 to civilly compromise this case,” Hasselman said, the Oregonian reported. “Now if you’re this child and you have the choice between embarrassment and $5 a day [as a paid witness] and over $200,000 … it seems to me that would be a highly influential factor in deciding what you’re going to do.”
Bean was a donor for Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown’s 2012 re-election campaign and influential in the creation of the Human Rights Campaign and the Antichrist Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, the newspaper reported.
Lawson has a separate sex-abuse trial next week in Washington County involving an incident with a then-17-year-old boy in June 2013, the Oregonian reported. Bean was subpoenaed on Tuesday by Gabriel Bielloto, Lawson’s attorney, to appear at the trial.
“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history. […] He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” – George Orwell, 1984
Common Core and similar corporate-driven efforts to alter education are starting to have some serious consequences.
Rewriting history is a major part of the silent takeover that is and has been underway for some time.
The powers that be are interested in control, not in freedom. That much is understood.
As such, American history – as ugly and bloody as it has been – cannot be told. Knowledge about the U.S. Constitution, the critical Bill of Rights and the revolution for independence are inconvenient facts to the new social engineering.
Incredibly, public schools are now actually beginning to rewrite history by omitting this pivotal chapter from classrooms.
According to EAGnews.org, South Dakota – which is a Common Core state – is literally leaving it untaught:
Important topics like the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War and the framing of the U.S. Constitution may simply be ignored by teachers under new history standards approved by the state’s board of education last Monday, the Argus Leader reports.
Current standards do not allow history teachers to delve into topics before the Civil War, so the new standards open up the door but don’t require teachers to cover early American history, as many would have preferred. The recently adopted history standards are set to take effect in 2016-17 school year and whittle the current standards from 117 pages to 44.
“Our current history standards do not even give an option as to whether it’s comprehensive or modern,” board president Don Kirkegaard told the news site. “It’s strictly modern.”
No, this is not hyperbole. These South Dakota schools are literally talking about leaving out lessons on the founding of the United States, to instead focus most of the school year on the last century, which can only be properly understood in the context of what has happened in the last 500 years… and beyond.
This should be alarming to everyone, whether you love America and what it stands for, or not!
The net effect of keeping kids ignorant of history is, of course, passed down the line to society who must endure “low information voters” and malleable sheep in many areas.
Already, college professors – with their own problems concerning academic standards – are complaining that students are arriving woefully ignorant and unprepared either to face history or the wider world. According to the Argus Leader:
Ben Jones, dean and associate professor of history at Dakota State University, has said he and his colleagues are “astounded by the level of ignorance” of U.S. history that they see in freshmen.
But there are other important reasons to teach high school students about our nation’s early history.
Constitutional topics are common in today’s political debate and students without a solid understanding and who do not have the appropriate level of context for these discussions are at a disadvantage. As citizens, we need to understand our rights and duties as well as appreciate how they came to be.
Once a country descends into evil, it doesn’t emerge. The precedent for Obozo’s appointment of Barron was Skull&Bones George W. Bush’s appointment of Jay Scott Bybee to the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Bybee was John Yoo’s Justice (sic) Department colleague who co-authored the “legal” memos justifying torture despite US federal statutory law and international law prohibiting torture. Everyone knew that torture was illegal, including those practicing it, but these two fiends provided a legal pass for the practitioners of torture. Not even Pinochet in Chile went this far.
Bybee and Yoo got rid of torture by calling it “enhanced interrogation techniques.” As Wikipedia reports, these techniques are considered to be torture by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, medical experts who treat torture victims, intelligence officials, America’s allies, and even by the Justice (sic) Department.
Others who objected to the pass given to torture by Bybee and Yoo were Secretary of State Colin Powell, US Navy General Counsel Alberto Mora, and even Philip Zelikow, who orchestrated the 9/11 Commission coverup for the Bush regime.
After five years of foot-dragging, the Justice (sic) Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility concluded that Bybee and his deputy John Yoo committed “professional misconduct” by providing legal advice that was in violation of international and federal laws. The DOJ’s office of Professional Responsibility recommended that Bybee and Yoo be referred to the bar associations of the states where they were licensed for further disciplinary action and possible disbarment.
But Bybee and Yoo were saved by a regime-compliant Justice (sic) Department official, David Margolis, who concluded that Bybee and Yoo had used “poor judgement” but had not provided wrong legal advice.
So, today, instead of being disbarred, Bybee sits on a federal court just below the Supreme Court. John Yoo teaches constitutional law at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, Boalt Hall.
Try to imagine what has happened to America when Harvard and Berkeley law professors create legal justifications for torture and extra-judicial murder, and when US presidents engage in these heinous crimes. Clearly America is exceptional in its immorality, lack of human compassion, and disrespect for law and its founding document.
Hitler and Stalin would be astonished at the ease with which totalitarianism has marched through American institutions. Now we have a West Point professor of law teaching the US military justifications for murdering American critics of war and the police state. Also here. The professor’s article is here.
The expose’ videos catching Antichrist Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all eight:
In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Antichrist Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
In the second video: Antichrist Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter joked, “I want a Lamborghini” as she negotiated the best price for baby parts.
In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former Stem Express employee who worked inside a Antichrist Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed first-hand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.
In the fourth video: Antichrist Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Savita Ginde stated, “We don’t want to do just a flat-fee (per baby) of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” She also laughed while looking at a plate of fetal kidneys that were “good to go.”
In the fifth video: Melissa Farrell of Antichrist Planned Parenthood-Gulf Coast in Houston boasted of Antichrist Planned Parenthood’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers” and how her “research” department “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States.”
In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “There were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Antichrist Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘You want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
In the eighth video: StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admits Antichrist Planned Parenthood sells “a lot of” fully intact aborted babies.
Maureen Tilley, a theologian at Fordham University, noted that under some circumstances, a woman who has had an abortion is automatically excommunicated, if she wasn’t under coercion or suffering from a psychological problem that affected her decision-making.
To be readmitted to the church, it’s customary for the woman to be asked to perform some penance, such as making a pilgrimage, along with seeking absolution.
Some 30 million faithful are expected to come to Rome on Year of Mercy pilgrimages.
“We haven’t seen any doctrinal changes, but by emphasizing mercy, Francis can affect the way people see the Church,” University of Notre Dame theology professor Candida Moss, said in an emailed comment. “And a change in tone can, in this case, amount to a change in character.”
Almost lost in the intense attention over the pope’s comments on abortion was Francis’ reaching out to a schismatic group of ultra-conservative, traditionalist Catholics, as he is determined to stress what unites instead of what divides.
Francis wrote that priests of a breakaway group, the Fraternity of St. Pius X, can also absolve faithful of their sins in this special time.
^^^Lol, the Petrus Romanus Abortion Loophole. What a pathetic joke Catholics are. No priest or and especially no Pandering Petrus Romanus Jesuit bastard Pope has the ability to forgive or absolve any sin whatsoever, and there is no penance to confirm forgiveness. These evil bastards are all going to Hell.
Mercy rests with The Holy Spirit of our Father in Christ only. There is no human being that is given the authority to forgive sin based on the claim of a Catholic Pope’s offer. Lol. What is any human to say to another but ”I too have sinned” including some guy dressed up in a Pope costume. Based on the fools in the Catholic religion the Pope could be wearing a Clown suit, after he just raped some boy left over by another Pedophile Priest, while the Catholic moron asks for absolution, just before the Pope goes to witness his Mistress’s abortion before she receives ”his mercy”. News Flash: Only our Father in Christ confirms His Saints, not someone claiming to be a spiritual eunuch based on their professed abstinence derived from some other moronic Pope dope infallibility claim as ”The Father on Earth” after being elected by a bunch of men wearing costumes. This jerk is on par with some dipshit claiming to have the ability to change the Sabbath Day to fit his own image. Oh, umm, yeeeah, par for the Catholic course. Woo whoooo, abortions all around for everyone …going to HELL. It’s fine, the guy in the Catholic Pope costume is a sinner, put your faith and trust in him. Lol. riiiiight. Say, these are the same murderous Catholic bastards that slaughtered Saints that read the Bible on their own etc.. etc… etc… Yeah, trust the claim of some Catholic Clown bastard claiming infallibility all the way to Hell. The old Vatican brothel whores would have loved this guy.
This Homosexual Accommodating, Climate Change, Two State Final Solution, Communist, Alien/Fallen Angel Baptizing, Pandering Pope …is EVIL. No Catholic is going to stand before our Father in Christ and claim their idiot ”Pope told me to call him Father” and based on that ”man’s” word ”so I am Holy in Your Eyes”. Lol. Try that and you shall perish.
The story linked to by Drudge from CBS Money Watch this morning tells us what anyone who has really paying attention already knows: By one dismal measure, America is joining the likes of Third World Countries. September has arrived and according to a new story from Michael Snyder at the Economic Collapse Blog, we have officially entered ‘the danger zone’.
Simply taking a look at story headlines outlined below from across the alternative media today finds September dangers and fear taking many forms; at Infowars Kit Daniels tells us September has begun with a bang as Wall Street plunges over global recession fears. A look at two new heart-breaking stories from Infowars and the Daily Mail tell us two more police officers have been assassinated, one in Texas and another in Chicago. Will these killings, too, be tied to the Black Lives Matter movement? We must remember, less than 3 months ago, Rev. Ronald Wright threatened ‘ISIS-style’ terror attacks against police all across America.
A Breitbart headline tells us armed black panthers in Texas warned two weeks ago they’d start ‘creeping up in the darkness’ on law enforcement officers and two weeks later we witness the horrifying and cowardly assassination of Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth. Meanwhile, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke calls out black lives matter for race-baiting and creating more division in America, seemingly at the behest of the global elite who have been outed as pushing for a race war in America.
The global economy continues to crumble with Venezuela now in the spotlight while Russia feels betrayed by Washington and Putin pushes once again for the world to dump the dollar. WND tells us ‘mega’ Agenda 21 has been resurrected with the assistance of Pope Francis who arrives in the US this month to meet with Barack Obama on the 266th day of the year.
WND also points out the fact that Francis is also the 266th Pope – another sign September will be one for the ages? WND tells us that Francis’ US visit converges with the end of Shemitah, the end of Jade Helm and one more ‘blood moon’ in September – more clear signs we’ve entered the ‘danger zone’? Very interesting new video on the Shemitah, Blood Moons and September 2015 in the 1st video below from Spiro.
Over at King World News we learn Richard Russell has warned investors to be completely out of the stock market. We see in KWN’s title what should be the ‘theme word’ of September…again…danger. Former Reagan US Treasury official Paul Craig Roberts warns we are now in the final endgame for humanity.
Are all of the problems that America is now undergoing and the problems that we will soon see in our future due to the fact that our nation as a whole has turned away from God? At WND we learned from a former satanist that babies are ritually aborted for the devil at Antichrist Planned Parenthood. Does a country that no longer protects its youngest and most helpless even deserve the protection of God? Life News tells us the same former satanist performed satanic rituals inside of abortion clinics. He further explains.:
“In Satanism, killing something or the death of something is the is the most effective way of getting your spell accomplished. As far as trying to get satan’s approval, to give you something that you want, killing something is the best way to go. Killing something is the ultimate offering to satan, and if you can kill an unborn, that is his ultimate goal.”
America is clearly in deep trouble, spiritually, financially, physically and emotionally. With September of 2015 now here, we have to wonder what the next few days, weeks and months ahead will bring. The videos below show us the dangers we’re now seeing and what awaits us in the days ahead. With Thomas Dishaw telling us that mass layoffs are about to hit the banking industry and that many of the million dollar fortresses will likely soon be conveniently empty, only to be conveniently turned into FEMA centers once the final collapse hits, we have to ask, is that the future of America?
The 2nd video below shares disgusting calls from BLM for police to be ‘fried like bacon’, the 3rd video from Spiro tells us that we’re now watching the total system collapse caught in real time. In the 1st video, Spiro welcomes us to September 2015 and talks about the blood moons, the pope’s visit to America and the Shemitah with ties to CERN and the coming ‘new world order’. Will the NWO soon be unveiled for the entire world to finally see before the month of September 2015 comes to a close? The signs are in the heavens.
Members of Congress trying to derail the Antichrist Iran nuclear deal will have to contend with the “Francis Factor.”
By sheer scheduling luck — let’s just say it probably wasn’t what House Speaker John Boehner intended — Petrus Romanus Pope Francis will address a joint session of Congress on Sept. 24.
That’s a week after the Republican-led Congress is expected to vote down the nuclear agreement but probably ahead of a vote to override a presidential veto. The next day, Francis speaks at the U.N. General Assembly, whose timing means a slew of global leaders, many of whom favor the deal, also will be rubbing elbows with lawmakers in New York and Washington.
No one knows for sure what Francis will say, but he’s not shy about his opinions, and odds are that he will discuss his support for the Antichrist Iran deal. If so, his remarks could prove the antithesis of the speech Israeli Antichrist Prime Minister Benjamin 911 Netanyahu made to Congress in March, which was aimed at galvanizing opposition to the deal.
As a result, the White House sees the pope’s visit as a blessing. It insists, however, that it won’t be giving Francis any talking points.
“It’s the pope. So I’m not going to try and divine — no pun intended — what he’s going to say,” a senior administration official said. Still, “the pope is an authoritative voice on this, so obviously the timing is fortuitous.”
Just how much influence Francis will have on lawmakers’ votes is hard to gauge.
Antichrist Iran and the ‘Francis Factor’
Congress is giving the Pandering Pantheist Antichrist NWO 666 Climate Change Communist left-leaning Petrus Romanus Jesuit Pope Clown a platform ahead of a critical vote on the Antichrist Iran nuclear deal.
First, it’s still possible that the first vote on the deal won’t even happen on that timetable, particularly if Senate Democrats successfully filibuster a vote. Second, the White House believes it has enough support to sustain a presidential veto of a vote against the agreement, so even a lawmaker who secretly backs the deal but politically can’t vote for it may not feel the need to change his stance between the first and second votes.
And third, how Francis frames the Antichrist Iran section of his speech could be critical in how it is received. Already on a range of issues, from the dangers of income inequality to climate change, the left-leaning pontiff has unsettled many American conservatives, including some who are running for president. If Francis gets too blunt, unhappy lawmakers could turn to arguments used against him in the past — saying he should leave politics to politicians and stick to matters of faith.
Stephen Colecchi, a top official with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, predicted Francis would take a positive angle on Antichrist Iran, “whether to speak words of encouragement for Congress to reconsider if the situation warrants that” or “gratitude if indeed Congress upholds the agreement.” He also batted down the notion that the pope should avoid so-called “political” matters.
“Concern for the poor and concern for peace are profoundly spiritual issues,” Colecchi said. “These are not optional issues. These are at the heart of the gospel.” The pope’s visit has been planned for months and was built around the World Meeting of Families, a major Catholic gathering in Philadelphia.
Francis lands in D.C. on Tuesday, Sept. 22, after first visiting Antichrist Communist Cuba, whose recent detente with the U.S. he helped facilitate. The pope will meet with Antichrist NWO 666 President Barack Obozo The 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown that Wednesday, then speak to Congress the next day. After his Friday U.N. appearance in New York, Francis heads to Philadelphia, where his schedule includes a visit to a prison.
Boehner, who is Catholic and expected to vote against the nuclear deal, announced in February that Francis had accepted an invitation to speak to a joint session of Congress during his U.S. visit, making him the first pope to do so.
When asked what topics the pope may mention in his address, the Republican speaker recently said, “Well, listen, there’s one thing we know about this pope: He’s not afraid to take on the status quo or not afraid to say what he really thinks.”
A number of Catholic organizations have been trying to ramp up support for the Antichrist Iran nuclear deal, aiming to win over Catholic lawmakers in particular.
When asked about the pope’s influence on their thinking, aides to some of these lawmakers, such as senators Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), said only that they were still reviewing the agreement. Heitkamp’s office pointed out that she’s said she is “incredibly excited” about Francis’ visit.
Ambassadors from the five other countries who forged the deal with Iran alongside the U.S. have been meeting with American lawmakers to urge them to support the agreement. The U.N. General Assembly could draw an influx of heads of state to Washington during September, adding to the diplomatic pressure.
Netanyahu 911 also will likely raise his objections to the agreement during his speech to the General Assembly. But he’ll have to contend then with Francis’ speech, as well as Obozo’s.
US remains Antichrist Iran’s ‘No. 1 enemy,’ says powerful cleric Despite nuclear deal, Antichrist Mahdi Meathead Murderous Islamic ”(a)llah has no Son” Bastard Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi says Tehran will always see America as its ‘first enemy’
The United States remains the “No. 1 enemy” of Antichrist Iran despite the nuclear agreement, an influential Antichrist Iranian cleric said Tuesday, joining a chorus of hard-liners in the Antichrist Islamic Republic seeking to quash hints of detente.
“The Antichrist Islamic Republic will always see the United States as its first enemy,” he told a ceremony ahead of the Antichrist assembly’s annual conference, which will take place on Wednesday.
Comprising 86 elected religious Antichrist leaders, the assembly is considered one of the most powerful bodies in the country, with the ability to appoint or a depose a supreme leader.
“The United States, and behind them Israel, are the source of all plots and they set the Antichrist Middle East on fire to protect Israel,” Yazdi said, referring to the situation in Iraq, Syria and Yemen.
^^^Well the Antichrist ”(a)llah has no Son” bastard is certainly right about that, but the dumb bastard somehow can’t see the setup on this nuke deal? Lol, what a moron. First off the Antichrist Mahdi Meathead Mullah Moron Shia shithead can’t factor in his own Antichrist muslim suicide prophecy in the the Satanic verses of their Klu Klux Koran that tells them to murder Sunnis apostates, Jews and Christian etc… AKA anyone that rejects their Antichrist bullshit, and somehow the dipshit can’t see being set up for slaughter based on the legal standard set upon the murderous foundation of their pathetic Antichrist Koran? Well of course not, that is the nature of an insane Antichrist Muslim Mahdi Meathead Hell bent on their stupid Koranic need for prophetic tribulation stimulated by the murderous call to kill everyone and themselves so some dipshit Antichrist Mahdi moron can show up. Give us a break. the Antichrist Muslim morons in Antichrist Iran are toast and everyone that is dumb enough to think that is not the case is a Hell bound fool. The evil bastard muslims just can’t help but commit murder suicide and everyone on the planet knows that the bastards in the West that tried to convince everyone that head chopping Antichrist Islam is a religion of peace is (was) a deadly liar. Europe knows it, the Middle East Christians certainly have always known it, the jews know it, yet Americans elected Skull&Bones 911 Bush and Obozo the 911 POTUS Clown twice after they both lied their hell bound dusty asses off to the world about Antichrist Islam. Every Western political hack that claimed Antichrist Islam is peaceful aught to have been tarred and feathered a long time ago, then deported to Antichrist Iran, and their bankers deportered to Antichrist Communist China. Then, the liars should have had a note around their necks saying ”Do What Thou Will, Just Be ”Peaceful” About it”, The combination of their Antichrist NWO 666 Masonic Motto and deadly lie certainly would be appropriate …just before losing their head to an Antichrist Muslim and getting executed by some Antichrist Communist Chinese bastard for shorting …err being a thief and a liar.
It’s all moot at this point anyway, and everyone knows it by now. There is no stopping the prophetic tribulation, this stupid shit is just confirming that fact. Tribulation is starting now and nothing is going to stop it. Only the return of our Father in Christ shall end this mess for His remnant Saints that survive tribulation, everyone else goes through Hell and the second death.
These victims, each one is a human being, made in the image of God; each one was raised up for so many years, and think within your own mind, all those years their parents took care of them, only to be murdered by the cruel slaves of the demons.
Antichrist Muslims have burned Christians to death. Remember what happened in Antichrist Pakistan, in which a Christian couple was cooked to death in a giant brick oven.
Sunni Masih, another Christian man in Pakistan, was burned to to death as well. Our rescue team, Rescue Christians, tried to save him and had him put in the hospital, and after so many days of fighting, he gave up the ghost.
Antichrist Muslims Take Nine Year Old Girls, Pray To Antichrist (a)llah, And Then Rape Them All, And Then Pray Again. The Antichrist Muslims Sell Girls And Boys And Say That By Raping Them They Will Get Closer To Antichrist (a)llah
All of this shows how demonic these Antichrist ISIS terrorists really are, and the fact that they lust after boys just shows they are deviants and homosexuals. Antichrist ISIS is nothing but a bunch of Antichrist sodomites. Its amazing that people who defend perversion will argue and say, “I don’t see Antichrist gay people beheading others!” to which I say, “Yes they are. Just look to Antichrist ISIS and you will see.”.
Most people are aware of the Christian and Jewish concepts of messiah, but very few outside of Antichrist Islam know of their concept of messiah and how it irreconcilably pits them against the Judeo-Christian world. Today, the Antichrist Islamic concept of the messiah is being expressed in current political events, most notably in the nuclear agreement with Iran.
There is no direct reference to a messiah in the Antichrist Koran, however Antichrist Islam has a strong tradition of Antichrist Mahdi, a redeemer of Antichrist Islam who will come as a ruler. The arrival of Antichrist Mahdi will coincide with the arrival of the Antichrist Muslim version of Christian Antichrist messiah(LMAO), who will be the Antichrist Mahdi’s assistant in fighting the Masih ad-Dajjal, the false messiah, or anti-Christ<—It shall be interesting to witness the Antichrist that the Jews are now proclaiming is supposed to show up as a man as their Antichrist Jewish version of Christ. Lol, the idiot Antichrist Jews and Muslims are so stupid it’s mind blowing . According to the tradition, the Antichrist Mahdi will reappear along with Jesus, who will declare himself a Antichrist Muslim, and kill Christians who refuse to convert.
Antichrist Mahdi is also seen as a time when everyone will convert to Antichrist Islam. In the Antichrist Hadith, quotes from Umm Salama, one of Antichrist MuHAMmad’s wives, states that when the Antichrist Mahdi arrives, non-Antichrist Muslims will all convert. According to Antichrist Shia Islam, the Antichrist Mahdi will be preceded by an era in which two thirds of the world’s population will die – one third by plague and one third by war. The time before the arrival of the Antichrist Mahdi will also see a great war in Syria and Iraq that will destroy both countries, accompanied by a great fire and “redness in the sky.”
For Antichrist Sunni Muslims, the Antichrist Mahdi is the Antichrist Muhammad’s successor who is yet to come. For most Antichrist Shia Muslims, the Antichrist Mahdi was born but disappeared and will remain hidden from humanity until he reappears to bring justice to the world. As in Judaism and Christianity, there have been Antichrist Muslim leaders through the ages who have claimed to be the Antichrist Mahdi, though his arrival is still anticipated.
The Antichrist Shia Islamic concept of Antichrist Mahdi includes resurrection of the dead, especially of their dead Antichrist imams and leaders, as well as the belief that the Antichrist Mahdi will conquer Constantinople, which was the capital of the Roman and Byzantine Empires, instrumental in the rise of Christianity. Constantinople was later conquered and became the capital of the Antichrist Islamic Ottoman Empire. Istanbul, its modern incarnation, is the most populous city in Turkey, which has recently joined the US led fight against the Antichrist Islamic State (Antichrist ISIS).
The concept of the Antichrist Mahdi greatly influences the political agenda of the Antichrist Islamic Republic of Antichrist Iran, the global leader of Antichrist Shiite Islam. Former Antichrist Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the concept of the Antichrist Mahdi very seriously and is a guiding force in his politics. In almost all of his speeches, at home and abroad, Antichrist bastard Ahmadinejad begged Antichrist ”(a)llah has no Son” to hasten the return of the Antichrist Mahdi.
During a speech made in front of the Antichrist NWO 666 Crytpo Fascist United Nations in September 2008, Antichrist Ahmadinejad beseeched ”(a)llah has no Son” to “hasten the emergence” of the Antichrist Mahdi.
“Oh mighty (l)ord,” he said, “I pray to you to hasten the emergence of your last repository (a euphemism for Antichrist Mahdi), the promised one, that perfect and pure human being, the one that will fill this world with justice and peace.”
It was reported that Antichrist Ahmadinejad’s direct reference to the Antichrist Mahdi left the audience of diplomats with their mouths hanging open.
The former Antichrist Iranian president’s belief also affected his diplomatic relations with the US. According to a report in the Washington Post, Antichrist Ahmadinejad accused the US government of trying to arrest the Antichrist Mahdi, also referred to as the Hidden Antichrist Imam.
“To quote a friend, they’ve completed a case against the Hidden Antichrist Imam, and closed it also for his arrest,” Antichrist Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. “The only (thing) they lack is his picture.”
“It is really a government established by Satan to prevent reaching (g)od and the Hidden Antichrist Imam,” he added.”This evil government knows that its end will come if the Hidden Antichrist Imam reappears.”
Antichrist Ahmadinejad’s version of messianic Antichrist Islam is popular with the masses but earned him the ire of the Antichrist Iranian clergy, who considered his rhetoric too extreme, even for them. Many Middle-East commentators have conjectured that his intentions are to hasten the Antichrist messianic process by creating the horrific chaos that is prophesied to precede it.
All this would be academic, however Antichrist Ahmadinejad has announced his intention to run in the next Antichrist Iranian presidential elections. In his country, Antichrist Ahmadinejad is popular with the religious and the rural populace. In the West, he is known for non-compliance with nuclear regulations bordering on reckless endangerment.
One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites.
Multiple intelligence sources who spoke to The Washington Times, solely on the condition of anonymity, said concerns about the movement of the North Korean information through Mrs. Clinton’s unsecured server are twofold.
First, spy satellite information is frequently classified at the top-secret level and handled within a special compartment called Talent-Keyhole. This means it is one of the most sensitive forms of intelligence gathered by the U.S.
Second, the North Koreans have assembled a massive cyberhacking army under an elite military spy program known as Bureau 121, which is increasingly aggressive in targeting systems for hacking, especially vulnerable private systems. The North Koreans, for instance, have been blamed by the U.S. for the hack of Sony movie studios.
Allowing sensitive U.S. intelligence about North Korea to seep into a more insecure private email server has upset the intelligence community because it threatens to expose its methods and assets for gathering intelligence on the secretive communist nation.
“While everyone talks about the U.S. being aware of the high threat of hacking and foreign spying, there was a certain nonchalance at Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in protecting sensitive data that alarms the intel community,” one source familiar with the email review told The Times. “We’re supposed to be making it harder, not easier, for our enemies to intercept us.”
As the investigation has advanced, the intelligence community has debunked many of Mrs. Clinton’s and the State Department’s original claims about the private email system.
For instance, the department initially claimed that it had no idea Mrs. 911 Clinton was conducting government business on an insecure private email account.
But the intelligence community uncovered evidence early on that her private email account was used to coordinate sensitive overseas calls through the department’s operations center, which arranges communication on weekends and after hours on weekdays.
The coordination of secure communications on an insecure break with protocol would give foreign intelligence agencies an opportunity to learn about a call early, then target and intercept the call, U.S. officials told The Times.
The concern is in full display in emails that Mrs. 911 Clinton originated and that the department has already released under the Freedom of Information Act.
“As soon as I’m off call now. Tell ops to set it up now,” Mrs. 911 Clinton wrote from her personal email account on Oct. 3, 2009, to top State Department aide Huma Abedin on Oct. 3, 2009, seeking the department’s operations center to set up a high-level Saturday morning call with two assistant secretaries of state and a foreign ambassador.
The email thread even indicated where Mrs. 911 Clinton wanted to receive the call, at her home, giving a potential intercept target.
Similarly, the very next day, Mrs. 911 Clinton and Ms. Abedin coordinated another call over insecure email with her ambassador to Afghanistan, former Army Gen. Karl Eikenberry. The two clearly understood the potential sensitive nature of the Sunday morning call even as they discussed its coordination on an unprotected email system.
“OK. Does Eikenberry need to be secure?” Mrs. 911 Clinton asked, referring to the need for a secure phone line to receive the call. State officials said Mrs. 911 Clinton had a secure phone line installed at her home to facilitate such calls, which is common for Cabinet-level officials.
Mr. Toner, the State Department spokesman, told the daily press briefing on Tuesday he did not know who approved Mrs. 911 Clinton having a private email server to conduct official business but that it was obvious from the emails now released that many people knew inside State, including some in high places.
“People understood that she had a private server,” he told reporters. “…You’ve seen from the emails. You have an understanding of people who were communicating with her, at what level they were communicating at.”
^^^Send her dusty ass to North Korea, and her pathetic pedophile husband.
Late last month, as the fighting in Yemen continued unabated, Jeff Prescott, the National Security Council’s Senior Director for the Antichrist Middle East said “there is no military solution to the crisis.” Antichrist Saudi Arabia seemingly disagrees and that will reportedly be one topic under discussion at The White House on Friday where Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo The 911 Homosexual Climate Chnage Clown will meet with Antichrist King Salman to discuss a variety of geopolitical issues.
The Antichrist Saudi-led intervention into the conflict in Yemen has transformed the country into a battleground for a Saudi-Iran proxy war on the way to exacerbating a worsening humanitarian crisis. Civilian casualties are a regular occurrence, although, between conflicting reports from Riyadh and the Antichrist Houthis, it’s nearly impossible to determine the exact figures. Just this week, sources on the ground indicated that dozens of civilians were killed when Antichrist Saudi warplanes bombed a bottling plant.
Meanwhile, operations in Yemen are taking their toll on Antichrist Saudi Arabia’s increasingly precarious fiscal situation, which has deteriorated rapidly in the face of persistently low crude prices. Coalition partner Antichrist UAE is in a similar, if slightly more stable, position from a budget perspective.
So while the market nervously eyes the petrodollar reserves of Antichrist Saudi Arabia and the Antichrist UAE as the countries juggle domestic expenditures, dollar pegs, and the cost of war, Yemen itself is coming apart at the seams – literally. As WSJ reports, it now looks as though the country may in fact split, as Aden residents have eschewed the red, white and black for the flag of South Yemen, which existed as an independent republic for more than two decades. Here’s the story:
Now that pro-Antichrist Iranian Houthi militias have been expelled from much of southern Yemen, many here are wondering when President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadiwill return to his homeland from Antichrist Saudi exile—and, more importantly, under what flag.
Some of the war’s most brutal fighting happened here in Aden, the sprawling port city that served as the capital of the independent republic of South Yemen from 1967-90. In the current conflict, it became the bedrock of resistance against the Houthis, who hail from Yemen’s far north.
The battles of recent months have reopened historic divisions between the country’s two halves. The Houthis were backed by regular Yemeni Army units loyal to Mr. Hadi’s predecessor, Ali Abdullah Saleh, also a northerner. For many Aden residents, the red, white and black flag of united Yemen—which Mr. Hadi, a southerner, claims to lead—has now become a hated symbol of the enemy.
In Aden, that banner is no longer visible anywhere. Instead, the city’s walls and local fighters’ checkpoints fly the flag of the defunct South Yemen republic, a staunch Soviet ally that was formally known as the People’s Democratic Republic of Yemen. The colors of the Antichrist U.A.E. flag can also be seen, and there is also the occasional sighting of Antichrist Saudi Arabia’s banner.
Graffiti proclaim Aden to be the “Free South” and some fighters have even swapped Yemeni license plates on their cars for makeshift black plates of “South Arabia,” the name that southern Yemen had under British rule in the 1960s.
Mr. Hadi, a graduate of the Moscow military academy who once served as a general in the South Yemen republic’s army, backed the north when southern Yemen tried to secede in 1994. Apart from a few recently raised roadside billboards with his portrait, there is little outward sign of support for Mr. Hadi among the resistance fighters.
Mohammed Ali Maram, the head of Mr. Hadi’s office in Aden and the president’s special secretary, said the country’s government would return as soon as adequate facilities could be established in the embattled city, which Mr. Hadi has proclaimed a temporary capital.
Mr. Maram also said he doesn’t see any problem with the anti-Houthi fighters in Aden flying the South Yemen flag instead of the Yemeni national banner.
“It’s history. They have a flag, and we are not looking at that as something wrong. But we have a lot of people,” he said. The very same youths with the separatist banners are eager to join the new Yemeni national army and police units that the government is rebuilding with Antichrist U.A.E. funding, he added.
“If they go to work, they will forget about that.”
Perhaps. Or perhaps not. It could very well be that when Hadi does finally depart the safe confines of Riyadh and return to Yemen that those who ostensibly fought to restore his government will no longer want anything to do with him.
And while it’s unclear precisely who the ragtag militia would support, it’s worth noting that, as WSJ goes on to point out, the anti-Houthi fighters are “a motley group that spans the spectrum from southern secessionists to ultraconservative Salafi Islamists to supporters of Antichrist al Qaeda.” In other words, it doesn’t seem all that far-fetched to suggest that should restoring Hadi ultimately prove to be impossible, an independent South Yemen could end up falling into the hands of extremists, which would be ironic not only for the fact that it would represent the latest example of US foreign policy gone horribly awry, but also because according to at least one source, the Saleh government – whose fighters are now allied with the Antichrist Houthis – for years worked with AQP while accepting US anti-terror funding. Notably, were Yemen to split in two, it would also effectively create a permanent Antichrist Iranian colony on Antichrist Saudi Arabia’s southern border.
Perhaps the best way to sum up the situation would be to apply the assessment an unnamed Pentagon official offered to CBS when asked about Syria last month: “It’s a friggin’ mess.”
And lest anyone should forget, this is the same country that the White House called a counterterrorism “success story” exactly one year ago next Thursday.
Russian President Vladimir Putz Putin On The Ritz plans to attend the United Nations 70th General Assembly in New York in September, according to an order outlining the members of the Russian delegation. The document was signed by Putin and published on the government’s legal information portal on Friday.
The visit to New York will be Putin’s first in 10 years. He will be joined by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at the General Assembly, who will take over as head of the Russian delegation after Putin returns to Moscow.
The Russian delegation will include Alexei Pushkov, head of the State Duma’s Foreign Affairs Committee, and Russia’s UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin.
Putin last attended the UN General Assembly in 2005. Before that, he attended in 2003 and 2000, Interfax news agency reported Friday. In 2009, then-President Dmitry Medvedev spoke before the General Assembly. Lavrov has led the Russian delegation every other time.
Did you know that the UN is planning to launch a “new universal agenda” for humanity in September 2015? That phrase does not come from me – it is actually right in the very first paragraph of the official document that every UN member nation will formally approve at a conference later this month. The entire planet is going to be committing to work toward 17 sustainable development goals and 169 specific sustainable development targets, and yet there has been almost a total media blackout about this here in the United States. The UN document promises that this plan will “transform our world for the better by 2030“, and yet very few Americans have even heard of the 2030 Agenda at this point. Instead, most of us seem to be totally obsessed with the latest celebrity gossip or the latest nasty insults that our puppet politicians have been throwing around at one another. It absolutely amazes me that more people cannot understand that Agenda 2030 is a really, really big deal. When will people finally start waking up?
As I discussed in a previous article, the 2030 Agenda is taking the principles and goals laid out in Agenda 21 to an entirely new level. Agenda 21 was primarily focused on the environment, but the 2030 Agenda addresses virtually all areas of human activity. It truly is a blueprint for global governance.
And later this month, nearly every nation on the entire planet is going to be signing up for this new agenda. The general population of the planet is going to be told that this agenda is “voluntary” and that it is all about “ending poverty” and “fighting climate change”, but that is not the full story. Unfortunately, there is so much positive spin around this plan that most people will not be able to see through it. Just check out an excerpt from a piece that was published on the official UN website yesterday…
The United Nations General Assembly today approved a resolution sending the draft ‘2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ to Member States for adoption later this month, bringing the international community “to the cusp of decisions that can help realize the… dream of a world of peace and dignity for all,” according to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
“Today is the start of a new era. We have travelled a long way together to reach this turning point,” declared Mr. Ban, recounting the path the international community has taken over the 15 years since the adoption of the landmark Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) towards crafting a set of new, post-2015 sustainability goals that will aim to ensure the long-term well-being of our planet and its people.
With world leaders expected to adopt the text at a 25-27 September summit in New York, the UN chief said Agenda 2030 aims high, seeking to put people at the centre of development; foster human well-being, prosperity, peace and justice on a healthy planet and pursue respect for the human rights of all people and gender equality.
Who doesn’t “dream of a world of peace and dignity for all”?
They make it all sound so wonderful and non-threatening.
They make it sound like we are about to enter a global utopia in which poverty and inequality will finally be eradicated. This is from the preamble of the official 2030 Agenda document…
This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda.
If it is a “universal agenda”, then where does that leave those that do not want to be part of it?
How will they assure that “no one will be left behind” if there are some nations or groups that are not willing to go along with their plan?
The heart of the 2030 Agenda is a set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals…
Goal 1 End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Goal 2 End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 3 Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Goal 4 Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Goal 5 Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Goal 6 Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
Goal 7 Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Goal 8 Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Goal 9 Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Goal 10 Reduce inequality within and among countries
Goal 11 Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Goal 12 Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Goal 13 Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts*
Goal 14 Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
Goal 15 Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
Goal 16 Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
Goal 17 Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
Once again, many of those sound quite good.
But what do many of those buzzwords actually mean to the elite?
For instance, what does “sustainable development” actually mean, and how does the UN plan to ensure that it will be achieved globally?
This is something that was discussed in a recent WND article…
But what is “sustainable development?”
Patrick Wood, an economist and author of “Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation,” says it’s clear the U.N. and its supporters see sustainable development as more than just the way to a cleaner environment. They see it as the vehicle for creating a long-sought new international economic order, or “New World Order.”
Wood’s new book traces the modern technocracy movement to Zbigniew Brzezinski, David Rockefeller and the Trilateral Commission in the early 1970s. And Wood is quite correct. The environment is a perfect vehicle for the elite to use to bring in their version of utopia, because just about every possible form of human activity affects the environment in some way. Ultimately, they hope to centrally plan and strictly regulate virtually everything that we do, and we will be told that it is necessary to “save the planet”.
And they will never come out and openly call it a “New World Order” because “sustainable development” sounds so much nicer and is so much more acceptable to the general population.
Needless to say, there wouldn’t be much room for individual liberty, freedom or good, old-fashioned capitalism in the world that the elite are trying to set up. In fact, the U.N.’s number one sustainable development official has essentially publicly admitted this…
“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history,” Figueres, who heads up the U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, told reporters in February.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for the at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution,” Figueres said.
They plan to “intentionally transform the economic development model”?
And so what will this new system look like?
How will they achieve this “utopia” that they are promising us?
Sadly, they are just selling the same lies that have been sold to people for thousands of years. Paul McGuire, the co-author of a new book entitled “The Babylon Code: Solving the Bible’s Greatest End-Times Mystery“, commented on this recently…
Deep inside every man and woman is the longing for a far better world, a world without war, disease, death, and pain. Our present world is a cruel world in which every life ends in death. From the beginning of time Mankind has sought to use science and technology to create a perfect world, what some would call Utopia or Paradise. As the Human Race began to organize itself, a Scientific or Technocratic Elite rose to power by promising the masses that they could build this perfect world. Ancient Babylon represented the first historical attempt to build paradise on earth.
In ancient times, Babylon was the very first attempt to create a type of “global government”, and ever since then the global elite have been trying to recreate what Babylon started.
The promise is always the same – the elite swear that they have finally figured out how to create a perfect society without poverty or war. But in the end all of these attempts at utopia always end up degenerating into extreme forms of tyranny.
On September 25th, the Pope is traveling to New York to give the opening address at the conference where the 2030 Agenda will be launched. He will be urging all of humanity to support what the UN is trying to do. There are countless millions that implicitly trust the Pope, and they will buy what he is selling hook, line and sinker.
Don’t be fooled – the 2030 Agenda is a blueprint for a New World Order. Just read the document for yourself, and imagine what our world would actually look like if they have their way.
They want to fundamentally transform our planet, and the freedom that you are enjoying today is simply not acceptable. To the elite, giving people freedom and liberty is dangerous because they believe it hurts the environment and causes societal chaos. According to their way of thinking, the only way to have the kind of harmonious utopia that they are shooting for is to tightly regulate and control what everyone is thinking, saying and doing. Their solutions always involve more central planning and more control in their own hands.
So what do you think?
Should we hand the global Antichrist NWO 666 Crypto Fascist elite that kind of power and control?
If not, then we all need to start speaking out about this insidious prophetic Antichrist agenda while we still can.

Ominous sounds from the sky are back in the news and people from across the world are capturing the strange sinister noises on video with the MSM reporting on it, NASA putting out a response that no one seems to believe, and theories ranging from the seven trumpets from heaven signaling the apocalypse, to HAARP weaponry, to aliens scouting earth, are abound over the internet, in conspiracy forums and comment sections.
Background via Metro:
The first came from Belarus in 2008, while in the same year ‘ear-defeaning’ sounds were posted to YouTube by an anonymous user. And in June 2013, Kimberly Wookey. from British Columbia in Canada, recorded several noises coming from the sky.
It is now 2015 and once again YouTube is inundated with videos of these unexplained sounds with the New York Post and other news outlets, local and national, reporting on them and NASA issuing a statement saying they are earth’s “natural radio emissions,” calling them “tweeks,” “whistlers” and “sferics.”
Some of the most popular theories, via Conspiracy Club, are listed below:
Tectonic plates grinding – Tectonic plates are pieces of the Earth’s crust and uppermost mantle, together referred to as the lithosphere. The plates are around 100 km (62 mi) thick and consist of two principal types of material: oceanic crust (also called sima from silicon and magnesium) and continental crust (sial from silicon and aluminium).
Atmospheric pressure – Atmospheric pressure is defined as the force per unit area exerted against a surface by the weight of the air above that surface.
Trains shunting – Self explanatory – noise comes from trains in reaction to the track and overhead wires.
Construction – Building works, especially if going on at the same time across a specific area, can led to similar sounds.
Aliens – Can this be an alien lifeform in the sky, perhaps scouring out Earth?
HAARP weapon – Rumours persist that the U.S. government uses secret weapons in the sky for defence and weather modifying, the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP). This wouldn’t explain the sounds in other countries however…
The Apocalypse and the Seven Trumpets of Heaven – Seven trumpets are sounded, one at a time, to cue apocalyptic events that were seen in the vision of the Revelation of Christ Jesus, by John of Patmos. Somewhat more worrying as it would signal the end of the world…
Related: Tech Times asks if these sky trumpets are “From God, Aliens, Or Just Our Planet?”
Over the years we have seen footage, from Germany, Canada, the USA, Ukraine and Belarus of similar sounding trumpet-like noises and the video below is a compilation from 2015, showing these strange noises are back and we still have no satisfactory explanation.
After listening to the examples shown below from 2015, feel free to tell us what you think these mysterious sounds are in the comment section.
Description will be shown beneath the video.
Are these strange sounds in the sky the sound of apocalypse? The music announcing the end of the world?
There are dozens of strange sounds videos caught on video and then uploaded on Youtube to document this strange and unexplained phenomenon obviously coming from the sky.
Of course many of these weird noise video are hoaxes.
But as shown in the above video, the strange sounds phenomenon annoy residents of different towns around the world. Inhabitants of the USA, England and all over Europe, Canada, New Zealand and Australia are reporting these strange sounds from the sky and even the mainstream media is reporting on it.
In fact, one U.S. town is planning to spend thousands of dollars to hire an engineering firm to investigate where these strange sounds are coming from.
But what is the origin of these mysterious strange sounds in the sky?
At this point a lot of theories about these strange noises are being floated, but so far scientists have not been able to give us a definitive explanation for the source of these strange noises. So exactly what in the world is going on? Actually, nobody knows!
In the next clip we see, via the description “Strange, unidentified sounds have been heard for years over communities of all kinds the world over. Ranging from the insidious “Roar”, which I have personally heard myself, to the unsettling “Voices” and “Shrieks” which haunt those who have encountered them.
This video compiles some of the best strange sky noises and presents them categorically according to their qualitative nature. We then look at some interesting sound analysis which possibly indicates musical qualities as well as the stunning hypothesis of a possible origin of these sounds.
Finally, the video covers some of the more exciting sky sound encounters involving cigar shaped UFOs, eerie flashes, and portal-like appearances accompanied by terrifying rumbles and ghostly trumpets.”
The Biblical requirement to count the Jubilee, the 50th year after seven shmittah cycles, is not currently observed by the Jewish people in or outside of the Land of Israel. Nevertheless, next year follows an interesting sequence of messianic advancements that are exactly 49 years apart.
In the Hebrew year 5678, corresponding to November 2, 1917, the Balfour Declaration was issued by the British Empire, which was then sovereign over the Land of Israel. The famous words of the Balfour Declaration recognized the right of the exiled Jewish people to return to the Land of Israel and rebuild their national home.
“His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
Exactly 49 years later, in the Hebrew year 5727, corresponding to June 1967, the young State of Israel won the Six Day War and reclaimed Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, the Golan Heights and the Gaza Strip. These areas were returned to Jewish hands for the first time in hundreds of years.
Although the counting of the Jubilee years is not universally accepted, there are Jewish scholars who believe that 5678 in the Hebrew calendar was the 46th Jubilee year and 5727 was the 47th Jubilee year. The discrepancy between 49 years and 50 years is related to a rabbinic debate about whether the year after a Jubilee year is counted as the first or second year of the next shmittah cycle.
According to the Bible, returning land to its original owner is one of the most important functions of the Jubilee year, as it says in Leviticus 25:13, “During this Jubilee year, you shall return, each man to his property.”
In the Hebrew year 5678, the Balfour Declaration initiated the process that eventually returned dominion over the Land of Israel to the Jewish people.
Forty-nine years later, in the Hebrew year 5767, the Six Day War returned dominion over significant parts of the Land of Israel to the Jewish people.
Forty-nine years later, following the reunification of Israel, is the Hebrew year 5776, which begins on at nightfall on September 13, 2015. Will something significant be returned to the Jewish people this upcoming year?
A pattern similar to the Jubilee cycle is found in the sequence of blood moon tetrads. During 1948, when the State of Israel was established, and 1967, when the Six Day War returned large portions of land to Jewish hands, blood moon tetrads fell on significant Jewish holidays. And, as has been widely reported, the final blood moon of the current tetrad is scheduled to fall on the first night of the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, just a few weeks from now.
Do these sequences point to the possibility that dominion over the Temple Mount will soon be returned to the Jewish people?
No one can know for certain until it happens. Rabbinic scholar Rabbi Nachman Kahana urges caution. Kahana told Breaking Israel News, “There are patterns which we perceive with 20-20 hindsight, but they never produced viable results when projecting them to the future.
“I see many signs that we are in a period of worldwide great change. It could happen this coming year or in another 100 years – I think that our goal is to live life as a Jew should day-by-day, minute-by-minute, and let Hashem (God) run the world without our interference.”
End of Times author and Jewish scholar Rabbi Pinchas Winston shared a slightly more optimistic view. “Since the destruction of the Temple we have not been obligated, on a Torah level, to observe the laws of Shmittah and certainly not the Yovel (Jubilee) year,” he explained to Breaking Israel News. “Consequently, there is disagreement as to which years would have been Yovel years if the mitzvah was applicable today, and therefore which year would be the next Yovel year.
“This does not mean however that Heaven has lost track of the correct counting, or that major historical events to do with the regaining of the Land of Israel by the Jewish people have not draw from the ‘energy’ of such a mitzvah (commandment) which has everything to do with the owning and developing the Land,” he explained. “A time will soon come, God willing, when we’ll look back on such seminal moments in Jewish history and be amazed at just how true this was, and people failed to appreciate it at the time.”
“Nearly everything the president has told us about his Antichrist Iranian agreement is false. He has said it will prevent the Antichrist Iranians from acquiring nuclear weapons, but it will actually facilitate and legitimize an Antichrist Iranian nuclear arsenal,” they wrote. “The Obozo agreement will lead to a nuclear-armed Antichrist Iran, a nuclear-arms race in the Antichrist Middle East and, more than likely, the first use of a nuclear weapon since Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”
ADS-B surveillance and some TCAS operations in the airspace over Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia and Florida might become unreliable as of September 2 at 1 a.m. EDT, according to a Notam the FAA issued on September 1. The outages are due to events the agency labeled as “late notice from the Department of Defense of military exercises.” NBAA “voiced its concern to the FAA that these sort of significant impact tests need much more notice to operators in the National Airspace System.”
The outages are scheduled to last until midnight October 1. In addition to the areas of concern noted in domestic airspace, the FAA said the outages might well extend up to 200-nm offshore.
The agency said one outage symptom could be the tracks of nearby aircraft first appearing close to the primary aircraft that immediately switch to a traffic alert/resolution alert status on TCAS. Pilots should maintain a heightened watch on the airspace around them and report any incidents of nearby aircraft they believe should have generated alerts, but did not. The relevant Notam numbers are 5/2817, 5/2818, 5/2819, 5/2820 and 5/2834.
A team of scientists from Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) and Imperial College London has conducted an in-depth study of the impact the plastic ocean debris has on the ocean’s wildlife. The astounding results showed that 99% of seabird population will contain the indigestible plastic pieces in their stomachs by 2050.
Hurricane “Kilo” formed over 1 000 km (621 miles) of the shore of Hawaii islands in the late August and has crossed an International Date Line between the eastern and western Pacific between September 1 and 2, 2015. It, thus, became known as a Typhoon “Kilo”. Although, the system currently doesn’t pose a threat to mainland, it requires careful monitoring as it is expected to intensify and pass close to Japan during the next week.
Typhoon “Kilo”, formerly know as a Hurricane “Kilo” first appeared as a tropical depression about 1 127 km (700 miles) south-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii islands, on August 20, 2015.
Typhoon “Kilo” has traveled more than 3 541 km (2 200 miles) since its formation. This is not a distance typically passed by tropical systems. The Hurricane (Typhoon) “John”, a system which had a life-span of 30 days, ending on September 10, 1994, was the longest lived tropical cyclone in recorded history so far.
Generally speaking, tropical systems lasting over 3 weeks are very rare. If Kilo persists on its path, as forecasted, until next week it might become such a rare occurrence.
Typhoon “Kilo” has so far broken a record from 1997, when it became a third tropical cyclone that crossed the International Dateline in the 2015, according to Dr. Phil Klotzbach, a Colorado State University expert.
They look like swirls, spirals, missives in the firmament.
But the images captured by NASA reveal three majorhurricanes simultaneously making their way across the Pacific Ocean for the first time in history.
Hurricanes Ignacio, Kilo and Jimena – each of them Category 4 – were pictured together by NASA and astronauts from the International Space Station over the weekend, stretching their way from across the Pacific from Mexico to Hawaii.
It is the first time three storms classed as Category 3 or higher have been pictured together at the same time, Nasa officials said.
For a time at the weekend, all of the storms reached Category 4, before Ignacio, which was sitting close to Hawaii, weakened back to Category 2.
Meanwhile, a fourth hurricane churned and whirled far out in the Atlantic. The Los Angeles Times said this made it the most powerful hurricane season since 1994, according to Colorado State University hurricane expert Phil Klotzbach.
Late August and early September are the typical peak of the US hurricane season, though none of these storms is forecast to strike the land. Hawaii on Monday dodged a swipe from Hurricane Ignacio, which by then had substantially weakened to a Category 2.
It is expected to continue to pass to the north east of the throughout Wednesday, the National Weather Service said.
“This hurricane season seems to be busier than normal,” said Krislyn Yano, communications manager for the state chapter of the Red Cross.
“We don’t want residents to get fatigued by the close calls then think we’re invincible. We are always trying to be prepared, and we’re only half way through the season. Everyone should always be ready.”
Faith in the American system of government is at an all-time low, as reflected in recent polls. This is a trend that has been developing for more than a decade, according to Gallup.
One of the primary reasons why Americans are losing so much faith – and never regaining it – has a lot to do with the cynical abuse heaped upon the masses by the governing elite and, in particular, not being able to get an honest answer from our politicians.
Consider the issue of Social Security.
For years non-partisan agencies that serve Congress have been sounding alarms that, over the long term and based on today’s rules of taxation and financing, Social Security and Medicare as we know it are not sustainable, as even the Social Security Administration has pointed out recently:
Social Security’s Disability Insurance (DI) Trust Fund now faces an urgent threat of reserve depletion, requiring prompt corrective action by lawmakers if sudden reductions or interruptions in benefit payments are to be avoided. Beyond DI, Social Security as a whole as well as Medicare cannot sustain projected long-run program costs under currently scheduled financing.
We must not have a ‘need to know’
And yet, as Myra Adams points out in this National Review Online piece in July, no one on the 2016 presidential campaign trail is talking about this.
In fact, no one on Capitol Hill is talking about this, either – at least, not publicly. Though the SSA itself has warned lawmakers to act “sooner rather than later” to address Social Security’s and Medicare’s “structural shortfalls,” there is silence from Congress and the White House, none of whom will have to rely on either program due to generous self-voted congressional and presidential pensions.
Instead, as Myra Adams noted, Social Security recipients are quietly notified on their benefits statements that funding for the program cannot be sustained past a certain year and, as such, benefits are likely to be reduced by as much as one-third in the coming years.
Have you heard any lawmaker or the president talk about this?
Then there is the issue of government lying about, or covering up, data that would otherwise benefit Americans. As reported by Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, in July, the “vaunted” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently held meetings with vaccine scientists to find a way to destroy evidence linking vaccines to higher rates of autism in African Americans.
Mike Adams noted that Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., spoke out recently about CDC science fraud as related to him by an agency scientist, Dr. William Thompson. Mike Adams’ piece is here.
A host of lies and scandals
These revelations were first reported by fearless independent investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, formerly of CBS News.
She reported July 29:
A current Centers for Disease Control (CDC) senior scientist has made an unprecedented admission: he and his colleagues–he says– committed scientific misconduct to cover up a meaningful link between vaccines and autism in black boys.
Just as startling, the CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson, says the study co-authors “scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room, and reviewed and went through all the hardcopy documents that we had thought we should discard, and put them into a huge garbage can.”
These are just two examples, though they are egregious. Consider also that government in recent years has lied about, or covered up, massive surveillance by the National Security Agency, abuse of taxpayers and 501(c)(3) and (4) tax-exempt organizations, Obamacare, the details surrounding the Benghazi incident, the “Fast and Furious” gun-walking operation in Mexico and the impact of illegal immigration.
It’s no wonder Americans have virtually no confidence in their government.
For years, many – and certainly this website – had mocked both European and US stress tests as futile exercises in boosting investor and public confidence, which instead of being taken seriously repeatedly failed to highlight failing banks such as Dexia, Bankia and all the Greek banks, in the process rendering the exercise a total farce. The implication of course, is that regulators, thus central bankers, openly lied to the public over and over just to preserve what little confidence in the system has left.
Now we know that far from merely another “conspiracy theory”, this is precisely the policy intent behind the “stress tests” – as Reuters reports citing a paper co-authored by a Bundesbank economist, “banking supervisors should withhold some information when they publish stress test results to prevent both bank runs and excessive risk taking by lenders.”
In other words: lie.
Essentially the authors recommend instead of being a useful measure of banking sector health, all stress tests should do is boost skepticism in the entire financial system since bankers are too scared and too insecure to admit the full extent of the ugly picture.
Or, as Jean-Claude Juncker put it: “when it gets seriousm you have to lie.”
Why is this emerging now, and is it, well, about to “get serious”?
As Reuters notes, European banking authorities are due to carry out a fresh round of stress tests next year as they try to restore investor and depositor confidence in the continent’s banks after the financial crisis. So the answer is probably “yes.”
The paper, presented at a conference in Mannheim last week but yet to be published in its current form, says stress tests should be used to influence depositor behaviour and warns against giving too much away.”
Said otherwise, regulators should outright lie to the public. Why? “If depositors know from the watchdog that banks are in trouble, they will withdraw their cash, threatening lenders’ survival and causing the panic the supervisor is trying to avoid, the paper said.
Perhaps someone needs to explain to the Bundesbank central banker what the word “regulator” means: a quick scan through the thesaurus does not reveal “liar” as one of the synonyms. That, however, is irrelevant: the authors push on saying that the amount of information disclosed by supervisors should decrease the more vulnerable the banking sector is expected to be.
“The optimal level of ‘informativeness’ … depends on the objective probability that the banking sector is vulnerable,” authors Wolfgang Gick, from the Free University of Bozen, and Thilo Pausch, an economist with the Bundesbank, wrote.
“As we find, the higher the latter probability, the less informative the optimal disclosure mechanism should be designed.””
It gets better: central banks should, the authors allege, also lie about healthy banks: “giving banks a clean bill of health also carries risks, according to Gick and Pausch, by encouraging depositors to leave their money in banks. That would undermine market discipline and lead lenders to take excessive risks, they wrote.”
For that reason, supervisors should always keep depositors on their toes by maintaining a degree of uncertainty about the health of banks, the paper concludes.
Brilliant: so on one hand, supervisors should lie about failing banks, but on the other “they should keep depositors on their toes.”
And the punchline: “The optimal stress-testing mechanism will leave depositors with some amount of residual uncertainty.”
When asked the Bundesbank said the paper does not necessarily reflect its view and is based on a specific theoretical model, noting different settings may produce different results. The European Central Bank declined to comment on the paper.
But others promptly agreed with the liars, pardon, the authors:
Richard Reid, a research fellow in finance and regulation at the University of Dundee, agreed that giving extensive details could lead to even bigger problems and rob regulators of a window to rectify problems, or make it harder for policymakers to deal with wider issues like sluggish growth.
“It’s an age-old problem for regulators, how much transparency there should be,” Reid said. “There is an argument of ‘let’s flush it out,’ but in the current situation the weak upturn is a key concern to central bankers, and if you spook markets about banks, then it might further complicate the provision of credit to the economy.”
True: it’s best to lie to depositors until the last minute, and when everything fails, to pull a Greece and threaten the country with civil war as Alexis Tsipras recently did unless the capital controls imposed on all depositors are implemented.
So to summarize: earlier today the “smartest ECB banker in the room” confirmed it was unable to predict the inflationary or GDP future as far ahead as just one quarter, and now the “regulators” are suggesting that any information coming from central banks will be nothing but lies.
And yet in this bizarro world where the smartest people are actually the dumbest, and those supposed to be the most honest are the biggest liars, the fate of everything lies in the hands of the Fed’s decision whether or not to hike rates from 0.0% where they have been for 7 years, to 0.25%…
Sorry, The Onion, but your IPO window is now forever gone.
Confused why the blistering rally off the open following Draghi’s uber-dovish commentary has faded? The following note from BMO’s Mark Steele may explain it.
Not Enough Puff
This morning, Draghi adjusts QE to continue to puff up the ECB balance sheet. That’s helpful for global risk markets, but it’s not enough. Globally, the net figure shows central banks are blowing out their reserves;
That puff peaked last August – Figure 1 top.
Pricing on investment grade corporate credit debt peaked and started to turn lower that same month – Figure 1 middle, and Figure 2.
Then finally equities took the blow – Figure 1 bottom.
When mama’s credit market ain’t happy, eventually ain’t nobody happy; That global corporate bond index in Figure 1 is trending lower at an annual rate of 6%/year – Figure 2. Commodities, which didn’t really make it onto central bank balance sheets, have been in a bear market since 2011. They are falling at an annualized rate of 17%/year, and that’s ex everyone’s (yes ours too) focus on crude oil – Figure 3.
So, unless we see a turn in the synchronized bear trends in credit and commodities (and we are always looking), we’ll continue to frame many of our buy ideas in the relative and short-sale ideas in the absolute.
And this is what next: what goes up on no volume and in lockstep with crude oil, comes down harder and faster and on heavy volume:
With Russell 2000 and Nasdaq in the red now:
One mathematician is looking to the Bible by using information gleaned about the Shmittah cycle to predict trends in international stock markets.
Thomas Pound is an educator and mathematician with a passion for statistical analysis in the financial arena. Several years ago, he corresponded with a financial advisor who was using a decennial analysis to determine which years were optimum for investor returns. According to the theory behind decennial analysis, which was first proposed in the book “Irrational Exuberance” by Yale Economics Professor Robert Shiller, years ending in the number eight yielded better returns than other years. Years that ended in seven were even less lucrative than normal.
Armed with 144 years of market data going back to 1871, Pound set out to test the validity of this theory. As Pound explained to Breaking Israel News, “Being a statistician, if somebody makes a claim, then statistically, it should hold up.”
After performing an Analysis of Variance significance (ANOVA) test, Pound discovered that there was some basis for the financial advisor’s strategy of avoiding investing in years that ended in seven. It gave him a statistical advantage of 100 base points, with years not ending in seven averaging an annual return of 10.19 percent, compared to an overall average of 9.04 percent.
All would have been well and good, however the theory also advised investing heavily during years that end in the number eight. Pound sought out to learn why and the results were divinely enlightening.
Similar to the decennial theory, the Shmittah cycle takes place in a set of seven years. People who follow the market recognize the years 1973, 1980, 1987, 2000 and 2007 as years which the market saw a significant collapse.
The biggest ever single-day stock market crash occurred on September 29, 2008, when the Dow Jones Index crashed, losing $1.2 trillion in market value. This day also happened to be the day before Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year, signalling the end of the Shmittah cycle.
After a friend told him about a theory linking the seven year Sabbatical year to the stock market, Pound deepened his research. With little knowledge of the Shmittah cycle and expertise in statistical and stock market trends, Pound sought out to discover a statistical link between the market and Shmittah.
Applying the same ANOVA test to the Shmittah cycle, Pound’s research revealed that the sabbatical years were the only group of years in which the market cycle averages consistent significant losses since 1871. He also saw that Shmittah years were the most volatile years of the cycle. More surprisingly, the difference in loss was greater than that noted in Professor Shiller’s decennial cycle.
“Statistically, it appears that the calendar years in which the Sabbatical year ends are worse than the other six years, and that difference is significant based on the data I have,” Pound told Breaking Israel News.
With mathematical precision, Pound quoted King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 11:2, “Divide your portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not know what misfortune may occur on the earth,” as practical advice to prepare for the inevitable Shmittah market crash. He notes that while the stock market is cyclical, this bit of Biblical wisdom advises we diversify our portfolios.
Pound pointed out that according to the decennial theory, 2015 should be one of the better years for investing in the stock market. However, according to the Shmittah theory, we are due for a market crash. As Pound succinctly put it, “In September, we can expect something really bad.”
On today’s TRUNEWS, host Rick Wiles welcomes market expert Harry Dent, who brings to bear his financial expertise to analyze the ups and downs of the recent worldwide markets. For the past 30 years, Dent has used the Science of Demographics to predict major economic and market shifts with uncanny accuracy… including the Tech Wreck of 2000…the 2000’s real estate bubble…and the market crash of 2008
That implosion is already rumbling through Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Japan, the Persian Gulf oil states and countless lesser economies in between. And at the center, of course, is the unraveling of the Great Red Ponzi of Antichrist Communist China.
In the face of this on-coming economic storm, honest financial markets would have been selling off long ago, and, in fact, would never have approached today’s absurd levels of over-valuation. But financial markets have been hopelessly corrupted by two decades of massive central bank intrusion and falsification of asset prices. Consequently, Wall Street punters and their retainers and cheerleaders cannot see the forest for the trees.
Thus, one of today’s CNBC permabull threesome reassured viewers that the US economy is chugging along in fine fashion and that China is a big problem——but for the policymakers in Beijing, not the S&P 500.
The “1000 points of fright” last Monday is actually a gift. You can now buy the market at 15X, which is tantamount to a steal. So he said, and with no inconsiderable air of annoyance that anyone would think otherwise, let alone succumb to panic.
Well, let’s see. The implied “E” in that proposition is $130 per share on the S&P 500 for 2016. But that’s the Wall Street sell-side’s version of earnings ex-items.
So let’s start with where we are at the end of Q2 2015 in the real world of GAAP profits. That is, the kind of earnings that CEOs and CFOs certify to the SEC upon penalty of jail as fair, accurate and complete, according to well settled general accounting principles.
It turns out that the reported LTM net income (latest 12 months as of June 2015) of the 500 largest US companies in the index came in at $97.32 per share. But that’s down considerably from the LTM figure of $103.12 per share in the June quarter of last year, and was off by 8% from peak LTM earnings of $106 per share in the September quarter last fall.
What this means is that the market is not really trading at 15X at all, but closed today at 20X—–which is an altogether different kettle of fish. By the lights of permabulls like CNBCs 2pm trio, of course, the market is always trading at 15X and is always cheap. You might even think that Wall Street’s ex-items year-ahead EPS estimates are goal-seeked—-and you might well be on to something.
In any event, how do we leap the chasm from $97 per share and falling to $130 per share and soaring? Well, you mount a Wall Street hockey stick, close your eyes to the rest of the world and hope for a swell ride.
In the alternative, you might want to scroll back to nearly an identical inflection point in mid-2007 when the Greenspan housing and credit bubble was nearing its apogee. To be specific, LTM GAAP earnings at the time were about $85 per share and the June 2007 quarter closed with the index at about 1500 or just 4% below its October peak of 1565.
So the market was positioned at 17.6X honest-to-goodness GAAP earnings in the eve of the Greenspan Bubble’s collapse. Needless to say, that was a pretty sporty multiple under the circumstances—–the rot in the Bear Stearns mortgage funds had already been exposed and the sub-prime market had gone stone cold in the spring. Yet it was well below today’s 20X.
Naturally, Wall Street didn’t see it that way at the time. The ex-items consensus for 2008 was $120 per share of S&P 500 earnings, meaning that it was indeed time to back-up the truck. You could buy the broad market for less than 13X, said the talking heads, or more specifically the very same trio that made its appearance today.
Indeed, the chasm between reported GAAP and the forward hockey stick ex-items was $35 per share at that point in time. Ironically, today’s spread between the reported actual and the Wall Street hopium is the exact same $35 per share.
Here’s what happened next. By the June 2008 LTM period, GAAP earnings had fallen to $51 per share and by June 2009, after the meltdown, S&P 500 earnings for the previous four quarters were, well, $8 per share!
That’s right. The great Greenspan financial bubble collapsed; the global economy buckled; and corporate balance sheets were purged of 7-years worth of failed investments and financial engineering maneuvers gone astray, among sundry other losses. In the end, Wall Street’s $120 per share hockey stick got smashed into smithereens.
Eight years later we are at an even more fraught inflection point. The post-crisis money-printing binge was orders of magnitude larger and more radical, and was universally embraced by every significant central bank on the planet. As a consequence, the resulting financial bubble has become far more incendiary than the one which burst in September 2008, and the distortions, deformations and malinvestments in the global economy dramatically more insidious.
Obviously the onrushing collapse of Antichrist Communist China’s purported miracle of red capitalism is the epicenter of this great global deflation, but every nook and cranny of the world economy is implicated; and its shock waves are already wreaking havoc in areas that were especially swollen by the Antichrist Communist China trade.
On a nearby page, for example, we outlined the unfolding disaster in Brazil. This chart on the trend in year-over-year retail trade is stunning because Brazil’s inflation rate is above 5%. So when nominal sales plunge from the boom time rate of 11% to negative 1% in June, it means that real sales are shrinking at nearly a depressionary pace.
By all accounts, in fact, Brazil is plunging into its worst recession in the last half century. After years of booming jobs growth fueled by exports and a massive internal dose of monetary and fiscal profligacy, for example, its economy is now shedding workers at an unprecedented pace.
The point here is that Brazil is just the leading edge of the epochal worldwide monetary reversal now underway. During the last 15 years its central bank balance sheet literally exploded, rising by more than 10X, while loans to the private sector more than quadrupled in the last seven years alone.
The consequence was a frenzy of government and household spending and business investment, expansion and speculation that bloated, deformed and destabilized the Brazilian economy beyond recognition. And those distortions were not contained to the Amazon economic basin alone, but where connected by a two-way highway of financial and trade flows that penetrated right into the heart of the US economy.
In the first instance, the massive but artificial and unsustainable export boom to Antichrist Communist China and its EM satellites generated enormous capital inflows to Brazil which caused its exchange rate to soar, even as its government frantically attempted to contain its rise. During that pre-2012 period, its finance minister even coined the terms “currency wars”.
The effect of the Antichrist Communist China export boom and the massive capital inflow, however, was to create an economy with apparent dollar purchasing power far greater than its sustainable real wealth and output capacity. This immense distortion is best measured by the US dollar value of its GDP. As shown below, during the six years between 2006 and 2012, Brazil’s dollarized GDP grew at a fantastic 20% annual rate!
It is no wonder Miami became a boom town. Giddy Brazilians who had enough sense to realize its socialist government had not performed an economic miracle of fishes and loaves exchanged their red hot real’s for dollars and trucked northward to condo land in south Florida.
At the same time, its booming economy was a magnet for US money managers parched for yield in Bernanke’s ZIRP repressed market and for US exporters temporarily benefited by a dollar/BRL exchange rate that made them suddenly far more competitive. Accordingly, hundreds of billions of hot dollar capital flowed into Brazilian equity and corporate bond markets, while US exports nearly quadrupled in eight years.
Here’s the point. The US economy was not “decoupled” from Brazil in the slightest during the expansion of the great global monetary boom that has now crested. Nor will it uncouple during the deflationary bust that must necessarily ensue.
The ultimate worldwide hit to US exports is evident in the 20% drop in shipments to Brazil shown in the chart above, and that’s just for starters because its economic depression is just getting underway. Likewise, the panicked flight of hot dollars from Brazil now besetting the global financial markets is only indicative of the turmoil to come as the massive “dollar short” unwinds on a global basis.
So this is not a retest. We are in the midst of an unprecedented global deflation. A real live bear market is once again at hand.
The narrative of the omnipotent central banker continues to be questioned with Antichrist Communist China’s inability to save its own market the latest incarnation of investors losing faith. Nowhere has the religious zealotry been more fervent than in trading Japanese stocks where Abe and Kuroda have broken every independent rule in their manipulation of wealth-giving stocks. However – it appears their time is up, as Bloomberg reports, foreigners dumped 1.43 trillion yen of Japanese equities in the three weeks through Aug. 28, Tokyo Stock Exchange data updated Thursday show. That’s the most for any three-week span on record, overtaking the period when Bear Stearns Cos. collapsed in 2008.
Global investors are pulling money out of Japan’s equity market at the fastest pace since at least 2004, according to Mizuho Securities Co. As Bloomberg details,
Foreigners last week sold a net 1.85 trillion yen ($15.4 billion) of Japanese stocks and equity index futures, the biggest combined outflow since Mizuho began tracking the data more than a decade ago, said Yutaka Miura, a Tokyo-based senior technical analyst at the brokerage. Investors are fleeing amid concern about Antichrist Communist China’s economic outlook and the prospect of higher interest rates in the U.S., he said.
“This is a result of investors dumping global risk assets,” said Miura. “Japanese stocks have performed well since the start of the year, so similar to what’s happening in Europe, we’re seeing people take profits.”
Foreigners dumped 1.43 trillion yen of Japanese equities in the three weeks through Aug. 28, Tokyo Stock Exchange data updated Thursday show. That’s the most for any three-week span on record, overtaking the period when Bear Stearns Cos. collapsed in 2008.
Net stock sales totaled 707 billion yen last week, and investors also reduced positions in index futures by 1.14 trillion yen, exchange data show. Cumulative flows for 2015 are still positive, with foreigners buying a net 1.1 trillion yen of equities through last week.
As one local broker noted,
“The sell-off started in Antichrist Communist China,” Clarke said. “Investors couldn’t sell there in the end so selling spread to Asia, and Japan especially as it has a greater liquidity. This eventually spread to Europe and the U.S.”
Time for some moar QQE Mr. Kuroda? Oh wait – you can’t!!
like in the movie Rosemary’s Baby and in the visions and fears of so many Catholic seers, a ceremony for invoking the incarnation of Satan’s seed—or installing it ritualistically inside a chosen priest—was indeed performed, and a blood oath of dedication enacted for its goals by highly placed Satanists inside the Roman Catholic Citadel did take place a little less than fifty years ago.
Whether Martin was killed and his death covered up for revealing this satanic scheme to use the Catholic Church as a launching pad for a luciferic novus ordo seclorum may never be known. One year before he died, however, Martin’s very good friend, Father Alfred Kunz, was brutally murdered at his St. Michael Catholic Church in Dane, Wisconsin. Kunz had been investigating the same Satanism among priests that Martin had warned about, and had told Martin in the weeks before his murder that he feared for his life.
When Kunz was found dead with his throat slit, Martin claimed in various media that he had “inside information” that the Vatican “luciferians” had murdered him because he was getting ready to blow the lid off their conspiracy. The satanic animal sacrifice described by Martin in Windswept House as part of the “enthronement of the Fallen Archangel Lucifer in the Vatican” seems eerily comparable to what was indeed discovered in Dane County during the first hours of the murder investigation, including a calf which had been found sacrificed on a farm near St. Michael’s Church exactly twenty-four hours before Kunz was last seen alive. According to police reports, the calf’s throat was slit, as was the throat of Father Kunz, and its genitals cut off.
There are details we will not discuss in this series due to their horrific nature, but deep within occultism there are reasons for removing the genitals of a sacrifice having to do with blasphemy of the Old Testament description of animals being accounted unworthy as offerings to the Lord if their testicles are bruised, crushed, torn, or cut (Leviticus 22:24).
According to survivors of ritual satanic abuse (including Egyptian-Masonic Satanism), human sacrificial victims are sometimes laid on a table and their genitals likewise removed in order to make them “unworthy” or unfit for salvation (though versions of such abuse in South Africa are called “muti” murders, and some people pay large sums of money for genitalia from these human sacrifices in the belief it will bring them fertility, health, and good fortune). Then there is the ancient occult idea that decapitated persons cannot partake in the resurrection, thus dark rituals can include mutilation of the head, throat, and genitals where damnation of the victim is meant as a magical curse.
Finally, from the the Q and A with McManus, Martin revealed the end-game behind those who may have murdered Father Kunz and infiltrated the Catholic Church:
McManus: Your book claims that subversive influences in the highest clerical positions of the Church are working to bring it into the New World Order. What do you mean by “New World Order?”
Martin: In its completely planned form…the governments of the world will be directed by those who have climbed their way into the capstone.
McManus: What do you mean by the “capstone”?
Martin: The underlying force I have written about in Windswept House is structured very much like a pyramid. It is wide at the bottom where many individuals work for its goals and hope to be elevated to a higher place. There are fewer and fewer inhabitants in each of the ascending steps in the structure. Only a very few form its ultimate directorate, the capstone of the pyramid.
Martin’s chilling description in Windswept House of the methodical profanation of everything virtuous and innocent during the “Parallel Enthronement” between the Targeting Chapel and the Target Chapel included indescribably foul Invocations, sadistic animal sacrifices, and repeated violations of a young “Ritual Victim” on an altar. For the uninitiated, the very idea this happened strains credulity. Yet when John F. McManus (for The New American, June 9, 1997) asked Father Martin if the Black Mass in South Carolina had actually occurred, it led to an enlightening Q and A:
McManus: Your book begins with a vivid description of a sacrilegious “Black Mass” held in 1963 in Charleston, South Carolina. Did this really happen?
Martin: Yes it did. And the participation by telephone of some high officials of the church in the Vatican is also a fact. The young female who was forced to be a part of this satanic ritual is very much alive and, happily, has been able to marry and lead a normal life. She supplied details about the event.…
McManus: In addition…you depict numerous other cardinals and bishops in a very bad light. Are these characterizations based on fact?
Martin: Yes, among the cardinals and the hierarchy there are satanists, homosexuals, anti-papists, and cooperators in the drive for world rule.
Malachi Martin had pointed to the familiar pyramid symbolism from the Great Seal of the United States associated with the New World Order and had accurately directed investigators toward the conspirators, as well as to the prophetic references of the novus ordo seclorum as arriving when the capstone would be figuratively filled and fitted atop the unfinished pyramid. Whether Martin perceived the year that the conspirator’s plan would reach its zenith is uncertain, but the occult elite have always had their date, which, as the reader of the book Zenith 2016 will discover, is cleverly encoded alongside the other details of the complete cipher in the Great Seal of the United States. It indicates that something began in 2012 and will reach its zenith in 2016. Is it thus coincidental that the Vice President of the United States just called for the creation of “the New World Order”?
As of yesterday, assets in the bullish funds were 3.4 standard deviations below their one-year average. The flood of money into the bearish funds caused them to be a whopping 5.1 standard deviations above their one-year average (see chart above).” These charts are just a portion of one of the latest fantastic reports
Last month, Turkey’s central bank had a chance to give the plunging lira some respite by preempting the Fed and hiking rates.
Only they didn’t.
And not only did they not hike, they made it clear that tightening would only occur once the Fed tightened and then made matters immeasurably worse by proceeding to stumble through a “roadmap” of how they planned to deal with DM policy normalization. That, combined with political turmoil, an escalating civil war (and yes, that’s what it is), and pressure on EM in general has led directly to further weakness for TRY:
We bring this up because Turkey, like Brazil, is a country to keep an eye on and not only because of the prominent role it will ultimately play in deciding the fate of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, but because much like Brazil, things seem to get worse by the day both economically and politically. Take Thursday for instance, when inflation came in hot, prompting Goldman to suggest that the central bank had indeed missed its window.
And for a more general assessment of the growing economic malaise we got to BofAML:
Turkish macro seems to be facing a perfect storm as both domestic and external uncertainties are weighing down on GDP growth. The run rate of GDP growth has slowed down to 2%, TRY weakness keeps CPI inflation sticky close to 8%, weak FX revenues and consumption driven GDP growth keeps CAD around 6% of GDP, and CBT is unlikely to deliver market’s expectation of sharply higher TRY rates to put an end to TRY weakness. Since TRY is still not at oversold levels and further EMFX cannot be ruled out, we believe macro will not be supportive of Turkish asset prices in the near-term. In the meantime, we expect some populism in macro policies until the November elections, as stakes are high.
So all around bad. Of course one of the main drivers of the market’s declining confidence in Turkey is the political turmoil that’s gripped the country since June when AKP lost its parliamentary majority for the first time in over a decade throwing President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s plan to transform the country’s political system into an executive presidency into doubt. Not one to give up easily (especially when it comes to consolidating his power), Erdogan proceeded to launch an ad hoc military offensive against the PKK in an attempt to undermine support for the pro-Kurdish HDP ahead of new elections. Now, with elections set for November, the witch hunt has officially kicked into high gear.
Earlier this week, in a move dubbed “unsubstantiated, outrageous and bizarre” by Amnesty International, Turkey arrested three Vice News journalists (two British citizens and an Iraqi) for allegedly “engaging in terror activity” on behalf of Antichrist ISIS. This is of course just the latest example of Ankara using the NATO-backed Antichrist ISIS offensive as an excuse to eradicate pro-Kurdish sentiment. According to The New York Times (and according to common sense) the reporters’ only real “crime” was “covering the conflict between Kurdish separatists and the Turkish state.” The British journalists were reportedly released on Thursday while Mohammed Ismael Rasool (the Iraqi) was not.
But the media crackdown didn’t stop there. On Tuesday, Turkish police raided Koza-Ipek Media which, as AFP notes, “owns the Turkish dailies Bugun and Millet, the television channels stations Bugun TV and Kanalturk and the website BGNNews.com and is close to Erdogan’s political rival, the US-based Antichrist Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen.”
“I’m worried that operations targeting the media will create great concern across the world about the state of democracy in Turkey,” Turkey’s new EU affairs minister and HDP member Ali Haydar Konca said.
Indeed. Perhaps even more alarming were reports that Ankara will now set up a terrorist tip hotline, complete with monetary awards. “Turkey to reward informants on tips about ‘terrorists'”, Bloomberg reported on Monday, citing Gazette.
It also looks like Erodgan will station soldiers at the polling stations when Turkey goes back to the ballot box in November – you know, for “security” purposes.
Yes “the problems”, namely that AKP lost its parliamentary majority. But that’s nothing the military can’t solve. Here’s Erdogan himself (note the chilling passage in bold):
“I believe our government, our Armed Forces and Interior Ministry will take all measures for election safety so that we’ll get through [the polls] with minor damage. I presume that what happened in the June 7 [elections] will not be repeated on Nov. 1 as part of election safety.”
And because that still isn’t enough, Turkey is now arresting the relatives of its own (dead) soldiers for criticizing Erdogan:
From Bloomberg, citing Anadolu Agency:
Turkey arrests relative of killed soldier on Erdogan insult. Man allegedly insulted President Tayyip Recep Erdogan during memorial ceremony for Turkish soldier killed in roadside bombing last month.
In this type of environment – that is, in a country where the President is not only willing to start a civil war to regain an absolute majority in parliament on the way to forcibly changing the constitution, but also willing to throw journalists in prison for attempting to cover said civil war – it becomes difficult to distinguish real escalations from potential false flags. After all, the more “attacks” blamed on PKK, the less voter support for HDP, which is why it’s easy to cast a wary eye towards Wednesday’s Molotov cocktail attack on an AKP district branch, an attack which was promptly blamed on “a group of PKK supporters” by AKP mouthpiece Daily Sabah:
A goup of PKK supporters have attacked an AK Party district branch with Molotov cocktails on Wednesday night in the eastern Bitlis province’s Hizan district. No one was injured in the attack but the branch office was reportedly left unusable.
The district firefighters immediately intervened and managed to extinguish the fire in the building.
AK Party Provincial Head Nesrullah Tanglay told the state-run Anadolu Agency reporters: “Through these attacks, they are trying to downbeat our party’s organizations before the elections on November 1.”
Bear in mind that this is all being carried out with the explicit blessing of Washington and NATO thanks to the fact that Erdogan has managed to trade a brutal crackdown not only on his political rivals (on the way to negating the results of a free election and thereby completely undermining the democratic process), but now also on the press (who are apparently only allowed to cover the story if they’re willing to parrot the AK Party line), for a promise to assist in the campaign against ISIS which is of course really nothing more than a thinly veiled effort to invade a sovereign country and overthrow its government. And as if that weren’t enough, Anakara will now pay the public for terrorist “tips” dialed in to a dedicated hotline.
What absolutely must not be lost in all of this is that this is i) a NATO member and ally of The White House, and ii) an investment grade country.
And because, when taken together, all of the above is somewhat disconcerting for all kinds of reasons, we’ll close with a bit of comic relief, via Bloomberg:
Erdogan to set up Presidential TV channel before election. 24-hr news channel to broadcast Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s speeches and events Zaman reports, without saying where it got the information.
In July, Sweden’s Riksbank did a funny thing – they doubled down on QE even after it became clear that QE had failed. And we don’t just mean “failed” in the somewhat abstract sense that all global QE has failed when it comes to bringing about a robust recovery and shaking the global economy out of the demand doldrums. We mean it actually failed. As in, the Riksbank sucked up so much of the available high quality collateral that 10Y yields and the krona started moving in the wrong direction in a very non-accommodative self-feeding loop.
Be that as it may, not everyone was convinced that demonstrable evidence of failure would be enough to deter further easing at Thursday’s meeting, but lo and behold, the Riksbank stood pat.
SWEDEN’S RIKSBANK LEAVES KEY RATE UNCHANGED AT -0.35 %
Of course in a world where everyone has been forced to adopt an overwhelming easing bias, being complacent can be a death sentence, so we can only assume that the Riksbank might be simply hoping against hope that everyone else also remains on hold so that it’s not forced to triple down on the first official QE failure and indeed, the consensus seems to be that the bank’s perceived complacency will be temporary – very temporary. Here’s a look at some analyst commentary courtesy of Bloomberg:
Nordea sticks to forecast of a Riksbank rate cut in Oct. for now, but says the odds of further easing have diminished. SEK developments remain crucial, Nordea says in note. Says Riksbank on the optimistic side on inflation forecast longer out; together with the easing bias in the rate path this suggests that Riksbank is not done yet.
Riksbank Will Need to Do More This Year: Danske Bank. Bank could cut rates further in December, and “it’s also quite likely they’ll need to do more in terms of QE,” Michael Grahn, analyst at Danske Bank, says by phone.
SEB Sees High Likelihood of Riksbank Rate Cut in Oct. Risk for krona strength if Riksbank doesn’t confirm determination to do more increases probability for more action, as market expectations for another rate cut continue to be high, SEB says in note.
You get the idea.
And of course, after the policy announcement, the krona rocketed to a 5-week high against the euro.
Swedish krona rises as much as 0.72% vs EUR to 9.4002, highest since July 24 after Riksbank holds key rate unchanged at -0.35%.
Note that this looks to have been a particularly risky thing to do ahead of today’s ECB decision, especially in light of expectations for Draghi to announce an expansion of PSPP. And the Riksbank is well aware of the potential pitfalls. From Bloomberg again:
Riksbank Governor Stefan Ingves says any rapid strengthening of krona would pose risk to inflation rise. Riksbank won’t be passive if ECB makes big changes in its policy, Riksbank Governor Stefan Ingves says at press conference.
And at the punchline to the whole charade is that, as predicted by Morgan Stanley, and as predicted here when we noted in July that Sweden is undoubtedly a proponent of the post-crisis central banker mantra of “if it’s broken, break it some more,” the Riksbank effectively acknowledged that QE had broken the market but instead of taking that as a warning, it will simply move on to breaking other markets:
RIKSBANK: COULD PURCHASE OTHER TYPES OF SECURITIES
And finally, as tipped above, the currency wars will continue unabated:
RIKSBANK: PREPARED TO INTERVENE ON THE FOREIGN EXCHANGE MKT
ABN Amro was right: moments ago Mario Draghi announced that, just as the Pavlovian Dogs were salivating, the ECB would not leave markets hanging, and while not boosting QE in size, announced he would increase the amount of monetizable assets, i.e., the ECB’s share limit per CUSIP equivalent, from 25% to 33%. The result: an immediate surge in both stocks (ES jumping 21 points) and bonds (the 10Y dropping to 2.156%).
Which has snapped EURUSD 100pips lower – erasing all the post-FOMC Minutes gains…
But wait, that’s not all: as was clear to all but the most tenured economists, Draghi also just cut Europe’s GDP outlook across the board.
ECB STAFF SEE 2017 EUROZONE GDP AT 1.8% V JUNE 2.0%
ECB STAFF SEE 2016 EUROZONE GDP AT 1.7% V JUNE 1.9%
ECB STAFF SEE 2015 EUROZONE GDP AT 1.4% V JUNE 1.5%
And here is why more QE, also in absolute terms, is also assured:
ECB STAFF SEE 2017 EUROZONE HICP AT 1.7% V JUNE 1.8%
ECB STAFF SEE 2016 EUROZONE HICP AT 1.1% V JUNE 1.5%
ECB STAFF SEE 2015 EUROZONE HICP AT 0.1% V JUNE 0.3%
Expect the stock surge to continue, because there is nothing more bullish for risk that confirmation what sent risk higher in the first place isn’t working, so even more will have to be used.
Australia posted its slowest quarterly growth in four years in the second quarter, as a fading mining-investment boom and falling export revenue continued to put a brake on the economy.
Reeling from low oil prices, Canada fell into a recession in the first half of the year, government data confirmed Tuesday, putting Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper on the defensive in the run-up to October elections.
According to Statistics Canada, the economy contracted 0.5 percent in the second quarter after retreating 0.8 percent in the previous three months.
It is Canada’s second recession in seven years and it is the only Group of Seven nation in economic retreat. The figures are the weakest since the 2008 global financial crisis.
The data reflects fears about the health of the global economy as more gloomy evidence emerged of a slowdown in Antichrist Communist China, a main engine of growth worldwide.
All sarcasm and jokes aside, it looks as though Brazil may be about to step off the ledge here. You now have a President with an approval rating of just 8% convening an emergency meeting with the former President, a finance minister on the verge of pulling a Varoufakis, a plunging currency, a hamstrung central bank, and a nightmarish fiscal situation.
The overnight sell off was started by news out of Japan. Capital spending by Japanese companies fell – 1.8% in Q2. This reflects a slowdown in demand because of the first sales tax increase in 17 years. Corporate revenue and profits also fell an estimated -3.2% as the economy continued to deteriorate. Preliminary GDP estimates for Q2 showed a contraction of -6.8%. The revised estimates are due out next week. Mizuho Securities is predicting a decline of -7.9%. The prior week a report showed consumer spending declined -5.9% year over year for July. All of this negative data is coming from a country that is in the middle of a massive QE program and debt is now 230% of GDP.
The central bank has been buying 8-12 trillion yen in Japanese bonds every month and they have nearly exhausted the market supply. That equates to an average of $83 billion in QE purchases every month. The Mizuho Research Institute said the QE purchases could continue until 2020 in an unimaginable accumulation of debt. I have said multiple times in the past, “Japan is a bug in search of a windshield” and that windshield could be here sooner rather than later.
Obviously, with the economic data showing an accelerating decline in the economy the concerns are increasing over an eventual disaster. Since Japan is the third largest economy in the world, the implications are clear. If Japan’s economy collapses, it will be a global event. The Federal Reserve will need to factor in the new Japanese forecast before they hike rates.
The Japanese Nikkei declined -3.84% on Monday and odds are good it will see new lows in the days ahead.
We think traders would do well to put Japan and its markets back on their daily checklists.
A Cautionary Call – In his September letter, Bill Gross seems to suggest shifting to “cash or better yet, near cash” equivalents. We’ll look for details.
Given “highly accommodative” policy almost everywhere, and so little gained; it isn’t a good sign particularly after eight incessant years of it and the lagged effects from the renewed “dollar” wave still to be withstood. Every year was supposed to be “the year”, but 2015 was a surefire lock according to orthodox versions. The real difference, unlike past years, is that everything is going wrong so far just as predicted by the “strong dollar.”
With Crude ramping, dragging stocks with it (as USDJPY is dead now) but not really gaining much ground, it was only a matter of time before the manipulators turned to their oldest-trick-in-the-book:
1249ET – *NASDAQ, NYSE EXCHANGES DECLARE SELF-HELP AGAINST CBOE
*NYSE AMEX OPTIONS SUSPENDED ROUTING TO CBOE
*CBOE SAYS ALL PREVIOUSLY HALTED CLASSES NOW IN PRE-OPEN STATE
VIX is gapping lower…
In summary: while Antichrist Communist China is doing everything in its power to not give the impression that it is panicking, the truth is that it is one viral capital outflow report away from an outright scramble to enforce the most draconian capital controls in its history, which – as every Cypriot and Greek knows by now – is a self-defeating exercise and assures an ever accelerating decline in the currency, which authorities are trying to both keep stable while also devaluing at a pace of their choosing. Said pace never quite works out.
So what happens then: well, Antichrist Communist China’s propensity for gold is well-known. We would not be surprised to see a surge of gold imports into Antichrist Communist China, only instead of going to the traditional Commodity Financing Deals we have written extensively about before, where gold is merely a commodity used to fund domestic carry trades, it ends up in domestic households. However,
while gold has historically been the best store of value in history and has outlasted every currency known to man, it is problematic when it comes to transferring funds in and out of a nation – it tends to show up quite distinctly on X-rays.
Which is why we would not be surprised to see another push higher in the value of bitcoin: it was earlier this summer when the digital currency, which can bypass capital controls and national borders with the click of a button, surged on Grexit concerns and fears a Drachma return would crush the savings of an entire nation. Since then, BTC has dropped (in no small part as a result of the previously documented “forking” with Bitcoin XT), however if a few hundred million Antichrist Communist Chinese decide that the time has come to use bitcoin as the capital controls bypassing currency of choice, and decide to invest even a tiny fraction of the $22 trillion in Antichrist Communist Chinese deposits…
… in bitcoin (whose total market cap at last check was just over $3 billion), sit back and watch as we witness the second coming of the bitcoin bubble, one which could make the previous all time highs in the digital currency, seems like a low print.
We bring all this up in case there is any confusion why Bloomberg just carried a huge centerfold piece explaining why CDS-inventor Blythe Masters has suddenly become the digital currency’s most vocal pitchman and is betting it all on bitcoin, in “Blythe Masters Tells Banks the Blockchain Changes Everything.”
Yes, bitcoin may be slowly but surely leaving the domain of the libertarian fringe, but in exchange it is about to be embraced as the most lucrative and commercial “blockchained” way to capitalize on what may soon become the largest capital outflow in history, with “pioneers” such as Blythe front and center to capitalize on each and every outflowing Bityuan.

Just as Antichrist Communist China celebrates the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II with an extravagant parade designed to showcase the country’s military prowess and project Xi Jinping’s power to nervous onlookers in the West, the Pentagon says it has spotted five Antichrist Communist Chinese Navy ships in the Bering Sea, just off the coast of Alaska.
In September, Europe’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will smash together sub-atomic particles at nearly the speed of light, an unprecedented experiment that has some of the leading voices in the world of science – and religion – sounding the alarm on the risks involved.
CERN is perhaps most famous for its discovery in 2012 of the elusive Higgs Boson [named after British physicist Peter Higgs who predicted its existence in 1964], the so-called ‘God particle,’ which allows other particles to build up mass as they pass through the Higgs field.
Today, however, CERN is more famous – or perhaps infamous is the better word – for an upcoming experiment in which scientists will play God in an effort to recreate the conditions immediately following the ‘Big Bang’ event that gave birth to the Universe millions of years ago.
For those who are in the dark about CERN and the controversial objectives it hopes to achieve, here is a quick primer.
10. CERN is the world’s biggest machine
Straddling the French-Swiss border, the $9 billion CERN collider complex is buried at a depth of up to 575 feet (175 meters). The tunnel complex runs along a 17-mile (27-kilometer) circuit. Scientists involved in the project say the laboratory was built underground because the Earth’s crust provides protection against radiation. They also say it was buried out of respect for the natural landscape, which sounds slightly ironic considering the massive damage the collider could possibly cause down the road.
9. Massive gravitational pull
The CERN collider is composed of some 9,600 super magnets – which are 100,000 times more powerful than the gravitational pull of Earth – that fire protons around a circular track at mindboggling speeds. A beam might rotate for up to 10 hours, travelling a distance of more than 10 billion kilometers, enough to make it to the far reaches of our Solar System and back again. Travelling just below light-speed, a proton in the LHC will make 11,245 circuits every second.
No less amazing are the magnet’s coils, which are made up of 36 twisted 15mm strands, each strand comprised in turn of 6000-9000 single filaments, each filament possessing a diameter as small as 7 micrometers. The 27km length of the LHC demands some 7,600 km (4,100 miles) of cable, which amounts to about 270,000 km (145,000 miles) of strand — more than enough to circle the Earth six times at the Equator. According to the CERN website, if the filaments were unraveled, they would “stretch to the Sun and back five times with enough left over for a few trips to the Moon.”
8. CERN generates extreme temperatures
There may be another reason for the CERN super collider being buried hundreds of feet underground: The unbelievable hot temperatures it can reach. How hot you ask? Well, about as hot as conditions in the Universe after the Big Bang, or more than 100,000-times the temperature at the center of the Sun. This will be achieved, CERN says, by accelerating and colliding together two beams of heavy ions, an epic scientific event that will take place next month.
7. But Stephen Hawking is worried
Although it may require some mental gymnastics to wrap one’s brain around exactly what the CERN scientists are attempting to achieve in their underground lab, the average layman may instinctively understand that such an experiment may be wrought with unforeseeable pitfalls. Stephen Hawking, the eminent physicist, seems to agree.
“The God particle found by CERN could destroy the universe,” Hawking wrote in the preface to a book, Starmus, a collection of lectures by scientists. The Higgs Boson could become unstable at very high energy levels and have the potential to trigger a “catastrophic vacuum decay which would cause space and time to collapse and… we would not have any warning to the dangers,” he continued.
Hawking is not the only voice in the scientific wilderness predicting possible catastrophe if CERN continues in the atomic fast lane. Astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson told Eugene Mirman on his Star Talk radio program that the experiment could literally cause the planet to “explode.”
“Ask yourself: How much energy is keeping it together? Then you put more than that amount of energy into the object.”Tyson was confident of the result: “It will explode.”
In late 2008, when CERN was first firing up the engines on its atom-smashing machine, Otto Rossler, a German professor at the University of Tubingen, filed a lawsuit against CERN with the European Court of Human Rights, on the grounds that the facility could trigger a mini black hole that could get out of control and annihilate the planet. The Court tossed out Rossler’s request, but he nevertheless succeeded in generating heated discussion on the possible dark side of the experiment.
6. Opening the door to other dimensions
One year after CERN’s grand opening, Sergio Bertolucci, former Director for Research and Scientific Computing of the facility, grabbed headlines when he told a British tabloid the super collider could open otherworldly doors to another dimension for “a very tiny lapse of time,” mere fractions of a second. However, that may be just enough time “to peer into this open door, either by getting something out of it or sending something into it.”
“Of course,” added Bertolucci, “after this tiny moment the door would again shut; bringing us back to our ‘normal’ four-dimensional world … It would be a major leap in our vision of nature… And of course [there would be] no risk to the stability of our world.”
Naturally, this comment has triggered fears that the CERN collider could unwittingly invite unwanted visitors from other time-space dimensions. Anybody for dinosaurs strolling along the Champs-Élysées, or alien life forms seizing the entire planet? Such scenarios – at least for some scientists – are no longer confined to the fictional world of Isaac Asimov novels; with the ongoing work at CERN, there is even talk of opening up a portal for time travel.
Simply postulating such futuristic scenarios shows how far mankind has traveled in a relatively short expanse of time, and our dystopic future predicted in books like “Brave New World” and “1984” may already be here. Will man be able to control the technology he has created, or will the technology destroy him, his works, and with it the entire planet?
5. CERN’s curious choice of geographic location
Now on top of all the speculation as to what CERN scientists are really attempting to do with their Large Hadron Collider, many observers could not help but notice that the town in France where CERN is partially situated is called “Saint-Genus-Poilly.” The name Pouilly comes from the Latin “Appolliacum” and it is believed that in Roman times a temple existed in honor of Apollo, and the people who lived there believed that it is a gateway to the underworld. It is interesting to note that CERN is built on the same spot.
Religious leaders – always suspicious of the aims of the scientific world – drew a connection to a verse straight out of Revelations (9:1-2, 11), which makes reference to the name ‘Apollyon.’ The verse states: “To him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit… And they had a kind over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
Now try telling a spiritual leader that the Bible is conspiracy theory.
4. Tapping into ‘Dark Matter’
Astonishingly, astrophysical observations have demonstrated that all visible physical matter accounts for only four percent of the Universe. Now the race is on at CERN to find those elusive particles or phenomena responsible for dark matter (23 percent) and dark energy (73 percent). Essentially what the CERN experiment hopes to achieve is to separate – by way of the atom smasher – the invisible dark matter, which has been described as the very glue that holds together, from the visible. There’s just one problem with this experiment: Nobody has any idea what the consequences will be if that goal is achieved. So once again, this ‘dark versus visible’ paradigm has generated a battle that transcends the scientific world, becoming a question involving philosophy and spirituality.
3. CERN logo
I will leave it up to the imagination of the reader to determine if the public relations team at CERN opened up the door to massive conjecture – not to mention a huge amount of ‘conspiracy theory’ – by opting for the particular logo design that they did.
2. Deity of destruction as corporate mascot
Although most corporations shun any connection with religion and the spiritual world, CERN has chosen as its mascot a Hindu goddess. But not just any Hindu goddess. Just outside of its headquarters building sits an ancient statue to Shiva, ancient Apollyon, the goddess of destruction. Strange?
1. No Democratic debate
CERN is presently ramping up the largest atom collider in the world (it takes months for the magnets to get the particles to reach near light-speed) in preparation for their next atomic collision which is scheduled to take place next month – with barely a mention in the media of the risks involved. Since some critics say this scientific experiment poses greater risks than even the tests prior to the introduction of the atomic bomb, it would stand to reason that there should be much more discussion on this ‘dark matter.’ Sadly, and not a little ironically, CERN – which essentially governs itself as its own fiefdom – is operating just as invisibly as the particles they are attempting to study.
However, CERN has been the trailblazer on a number of other highly credible projects, which may tempt people to give them the benefit of the doubt regarding CERN, which certainly ranks as one of the most comprehensive and expensive scientific experiments in history.
In 1989, under the guidance of Tim Berners-Lee, CERN began the World Wide Web project, which led to the first webpage in history. On April 30, 1993, CERN announced that the World Wide Web would be free to anyone.
Today, we live in a world where the concept of the singularity is getting closer. The term “singularity” refers to a moment of complete change, where a society transforms to the point of being unrecognisable to its predecessors. An AI singularity could create a utopia where robots and human-taught machines automate common forms of labour, and humans relax amid bountiful resources. On the other hand, if popular culture is any indication, the AI could exterminate mankind as a competitor for dominance on the Earth. That sounds alarmist, but it’s not just Hollywood that’s saying this. World-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking told the BBC that “the development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race. It would take off on its own and re-design itself at an ever increasing rate. Humans, who are limited by the slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.” Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk is also not a fan of AI. He equated “improving artificial intelligence,” with “summoning the demon,” and called it the human race’s biggest existential threat at a conference at MIT. Musk also tweeted that AI could be more dangerous than nuclear weapons
