He will be succeeded by a contemptible person who has not been given the honor of royalty. He will invade the kingdom when its people feel secure, and he will seize it through intrigue. (Daniel 11:21)
In 175 BC Antiochus IV Epiphanes came to power in Syria by stealing the throne from his relative, Demetrius II, the young son and rightful heir of Seleucus IV Heliodorus . The original Seleucus was one of the four generals who divided the Greek Empire between them following the death of Alexander the Great. Thus Antiochus Epiphanes became the eighth descendant of Seleucus to sit on the throne of Syria.
Then an overwhelming army will be swept away before him; both it and a prince of the covenant (Onias III) will be destroyed. With a large army he will stir up his strength and courage against the king of the South (Ptolemy VI of Egypt). The king of the South will wage war with a large and very powerful army, but he will not be able to stand because of the plots devised against him. The king of the North (Antiochus) will return to his own country with great wealth, but his heart will be set against the holy covenant. He will take action against it and then return to his own country. (Daniel 11:22,25,28)
Soon after taking power, on his way to invade Egypt, Antiochus invaded Israel, stealing all the gold and silver furnishings from the Temple. He had Israel’s last legitimate High Priest, Onias III, murdered and from then on the office was sold to the highest bidder, with the money going to Antiochus.
The Birth Of The Sadducees
He began to “Hellenize” Israel and before long many of the wealthy and influential among the Israelites adopted the Greek style of dress, cutting their hair short and shaving off their beards as well. They also argued for a blending of Greek philosophy and culture into the Jewish way of life. From these advocates of Greek thinking, the political party known as the Sadducees was born, eventually growing to a position of prominence during the time of Jesus. It was the influence of Greek philosophy on their approach to the Hebrew Scriptures that blinded the ruling Sadducees to the fact that Messianic Prophecies were being fulfilled right before their eyes during the Lord’s life on Earth.
“At the appointed time he will invade the South again, but this time the outcome will be different from what it was before. Ships of the western coastlands will oppose him, and he will lose heart. Then he will turn back and vent his fury against the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant. (Daniel 11:29-30)
Initially, this accommodation with Greek culture encountered only vocal resistance, but that all changed when the Egyptians rebelled and, with the aid of the Roman Navy, defeated Antiochus and drove him from Egypt. In a rage, Antiochus again invaded Israel, this time demanding that he be worshiped as God. (The name “Epiphanes” comes from a title he gave himself, “theos epiphanies” or god made manifest. After this the Jews started calling him “Epimanes” which means the madman.) He outlawed the reading of the Hebrew Scripture, punishing by death anyone found with copies in their possession. Circumcision, praying, keeping the Sabbath, and worshiping the One True God were likewise proscribed with severe penalties for disobedience.
“His armed forces will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice. Then they will set up the abomination that causes desolation. With flattery he will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him. (Daniel 11:31-32)
Put The Hammer Down
In 168 BC Antiochus again broke into the Temple, converting it into a pagan worship center in honor of the Greek god Zeus (called Jupiter in Roman mythology). Instead of the blood of bulls and goats, he sprinkled water in which pork had been boiled in the Holy of Holies, and slaughtered pigs on the altar. Then he erected a statue of Zeus in the Holy Place, with his own face on it, thereby proclaiming himself to be God. Because it rendered the Temple unfit for worshiping God, Jewish historians called this act the Abomination that Causes Desolation, the only event in history so named. It triggered the Maccabean Revolt.
The Maccabean revolt was one of the world’s first guerrilla wars. It was fought under the command of Judeus Maccabeus (Judah the Hammer). Regaining possession of the Temple in 165, the Jewish people smashed the polluted altar and the statue of Zeus, grinding both to powder, and then built a new altar from uncut stones.
Next they set out to cleanse the Temple and re-dedicate it to God, an eight-day process (2 Chron. 29:17). But they could only find enough sacred oil to light the Menorah (the 7-branched lamp stand in the Holy Place) for one day, and the law required that it be lit constantly for the entire 8 days. Because the preparation of sacred oil was a time consuming process, they decided not to wait, but to use the oil they had to light the Menorah immediately, trusting that God would find this acceptable. God was pleased and made the oil last for the full eight days until the new supply was ready and the re-dedication complete.
Eight Is Enough
Those who study the symbolic use of numbers in Scripture know that eight is the number of New Beginnings, and indeed the Maccabean victory over the Syrians ushered in a new era, known as the Hasmonean Dynasty. During much of this period, which lasted till about 64 BC, Judea, as Israel was known at the time, enjoyed independent nation status, having finally won their freedom from Syria. Following other Hasmonean victories, the Jews regained boundaries that nearly approximated those of Solomon’s time. Jewish rule was exercised throughout the expanded nation and Jewish life flourished once again. A New Beginning for the Children of Israel.
The Feast Of Dedication
The miraculous burning of the oil is still celebrated in the eight-day Feast of Hanukkah, from the Hebrew word meaning dedication. It’s also called the Festival of Lights and this year it began at sunset on December 16 on our calendar.
To celebrate Hanukkah, a special 9-branched candelabra is used, with eight branches commemorating the eight days when the oil kept burning. The ninth branch, called the Shamash, is usually positioned above the other eight. Its candle is always lit first and then used to light the other candles, one each day, until on the eighth day of Hanukkah all are lit. The Hebrew word Shamash means servant, so the Shamash is the servant candle that’s raised up and gives light to all the others.
Incredibly, the Hanukkia, or Hanukkah candelabra, becomes a beautiful model of the Messiah and His church. It was the Lord Jesus, the obedient servant, who was raised up (John 3:12) and gives light to all others (John 8:12). For the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve. (Mark 10:45)
If you’ve read our studies on the Lord’s probable birth date, you know I believe He was conceived during the Feast of Hanukkah and that His life, like all others, began at conception. If so, the Hanukkia is a fitting reminder that the Light of the World arrived during the Festival of Lights, ushering in a New Beginning for all mankind.
History To Prophecy
We know that the Levitical Feasts of Israel have both a historical and a prophetic fulfillment. For example, Passover commemorated the Jews’ freedom from bondage in Egypt and looked forward to the Messiah freeing us all from the bondage of our sins. The prophetic aspect of the Spring Feasts were fulfilled in the Lord’s 1st Coming, the summer time Feast of Pentecost commemorated the giving of the Law and was fulfilled in the giving of the Holy Spirit, and the Fall Feasts commemorated God’s dwelling among them and will be fulfilled in the 2nd Coming. Hanukkah is not a Levitical Feast but I think it has an important prophetic fulfillment like the others.
In reviewing the history of Hanukkah, I’m sure you spotted the similarity to events yet future to us. One day soon a man will arrive on the world scene. He’ll become very powerful very quickly, assuming a leadership position that’s not rightfully his. Many will give their loyalty to him and he’ll conquer most of the world. Even in Israel, many will favor accommodation with him, some even thinking he might be the Messiah. (John 5:43)
But then he’ll stand in the Holy place and declare that He’s God (2 Thes. 2:4), another Antiochus Epiphanes. He’ll have a statue of himself erected and put in the Holy Place to be worshiped (Rev. 13:14), another Abomination of Desolation, the one Jesus warned about in Matt. 24:15. Just like his predecessor he’ll demand to be worshiped as God on pain of death, and make everyone swear a pledge of loyalty to him. He’ll put a stop to the recently instituted Temple sacrifice (Dan. 9:27) and try to erase every trace of the legitimate God from the world. He’ll wage war against those who oppose him, but they’ll fight back in another war of resistance. After 3 ½ years he’ll be defeated (Dan. 12:7) and the defiled Temple will be cleansed and made ready for use again during the Millennium, another Feast of Dedication. And Israel will again experience a period of untold peace and prosperity, expanding fully to its originally promised dimensions. Jewish rule will be exercised throughout the expanded nation and Jewish life will flourish once again (Isaiah 65:17-25), another New Beginning for the Children of Israel and for all the world. Happy Hanukkah.

Chanukah: 8th Day
Hanukkah commemorates the successful rebellion of the Jewish people against the Syrians in the Maccabean War of 162 BCE, but the military associations of this festival are played down. What is really being celebrated is the survival of Judaism. After the Jewish people’s victory they ritually cleansed and rededicated the Temple, then re-lit the menorah or “perpetual lamp”; hence one of the other names for this celebration, the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah means “dedication” in Hebrew).
The story is told that although there was only enough consecrated oil to keep the lamp burning for one day and it would take eight days to get more, the small bottle of oil miraculously lasted for the entire eight days. It is for this reason that Hanukkah is also known as the Feast of Lights.
Oh my! Look what is coming when TX68 and the astroids come back in 2017!!!

National Health Service (NHS), the publically funded healthcare system in the U.K. is proposing that women be “supported” to carry the child to term for the sole purpose of harvesting the baby’s organs.
within the context of the occurrence of first blood moon quintet in history on the Lord’s holy feast days*, the Barley harvest (a type of first fruits) will be checked in Israel for its readiness (called Aviv in Hebrew), exactly on the day of a total solar eclipse. Aviv indicates a stage in the development of the barley crops. This is clear from Ex 9:31-32 which describes the devastation caused by the plague of hail:
Tomorrow, we will witness unique astronomical closure events of the Hebrew year with great prophetic significance. As Daniel Valles from Informedchristians.com very eloquently presents in this video, we are approaching a unique eclipse marker on March 9th and subsequent turn of the Jewish year cycle on March 10th.
Strikingly, the coming eclipse is only visible in and near Indonesia. About 10,000 foreign visitors and 100,000 Indonesian tourists are expected to view the spectacle, and special religiously inspired events have been organized across the country, from a festival featuring live bands to dragon boat races.
The ‘Wall Street Journal’ reports that the Antichrist NWO 666 US SPECTRE Clown president is considering a renewed push to revive the prophetic Antichrist United Nations Israeli Two State Final Solution ”Peace And Security” negotiations before the end of his term.
The White House is working on a plan to revive the prophetic Antichrist NWO 666 Israeli-Palestinian peace process which has been frozen for almost two years, the Wall Street Journal reported prior to Antichrist NWO 666 US 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown Vice President Joe Pertrus Romanus Boy Biden’s anticipated arrival at Ben-Gurion Airport on Tuesday afternoon for a two-day visit.
Last week, White House officials told reporters not to expect a break-through in the peace process during Blowfeld Biden’s visit. Similarly in November, the White House said that Antichrist NWO 666 US President Barack Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown did not expect to arrive at a Antichrist NWO 666 two-state final solution before leaving office in January 2017.
…unless there is a SPECTRE 911 Clown WMD Event that causes another engineered global geopolitical order out of crisis false flag platform to ”seal” the Antichrist United Nation deal.
In January, Antichrist NWO 666 UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon SPECTRE Clown justified the ongoing wave of Antichrist Palestinian terror against The Antichrist State Of Israel by announcing, “It is human nature to resist occupation.” If the Antichrist NWO 666 UN were to mediate a(The) peace(prophetic) agreement(confirmation of the Antichrist 666 Mark Of The Beast Tribulation Era), there is little doubt that its anti-Israel bias would deeply color proceedings.
The WSJ report added that other initiatives under consideration in Obozo’s final grasp at The Prophetic Antichrist Middle East peace (covenant with many) included a presidential speech or a statement from the Quartet (comprised of the Antichrist NWO 666 US SPECTRE Clowns, the Antichrist NWO 666 European Union, the Antichrist NWO 666 UN, and Antichrist NWO 666 Russia Eagle Of Lagash).
Compromises suggested by the proverbial Antichrist NWO 666 UN resolution could include Israel freezing construction in Judea and Samaria and acknowledging East Jerusalem as the Antichrist NWO 666 Palestinian capital on one side, and Antichrist NWO 666 Palestine recognizing Israel as a Antichrist Jewish 666 state and giving up right of return on the other.
A land swap would be implemented, with Israel withdrawing to pre-1967 borders.
The Bible firmly establishes Judea and Samaria, today known as the West Bank, as within the historical borders of the God-given land of Israel, and a prophecy in the Book of Joel warns that all nations which seek to divide Israel will meet judgement. However, Israel’s ancient claim goes largely unrecognized by modern world powers.
Israel has yet to respond to the possibility of such a plan. Past efforts by the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown administration to mediate peace between The Antichrist NWO 666 State Of Israel and the Antichrist NWO 666 Muslim Palestinians have failed, and most Antichrist Israeli officials do not see Obozo, whose relations with Netanyahu 911 are frosty, as a friend to Israel.
As his term runs down, Antichrist NWO 666 US President Barack Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change no boots SPECTRE Clown plans to make one more desperate bid for peace between The Antichrist NWO 666 State Of Israel and the Antichrist NWO 666 Muslim Palestinians by way of an international body known to be hostile to Israel – the Antichrist NWO 666 United Nations (UN SPECTRE Clowns).
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), Obozo’s last-ditch effort to revive the prophetic Antichrist NWO 666 Israeli-Palestinian Final Two State Solution peace negotiations is likely to include a Antichrist UN Security Council resolution which would set a framework for a viable deal.
Such a resolution would demand concessions from both Antichrist Israel and the Antichrist Palestinians, the WSJ reported senior Antichrist NWO 666 US officials as saying, despite the Antichrist Palestinians’ historical refusal to make any concessions whatsoever.
The Antichrist NWO 666 UN SPECTRE Clown move would be a welcome one to the Antichriist Palestinian Authority (PA), headed by ANTICHRIST Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, which has pushed for the establishment of an international ANTICHRIST body to mediate peace talks, preferring to appeal to external parties who may be more sympathetic to the ANTICHRIST Palestinian cause than to deal directly with The Antichrist State Of Israel.
Israel, on the other hand, has rejected external interference from non-concerned parties in the belief that direct talks are the best way to an agreement. The most recent outside push for talks came from France, which put forward a plan for resuming negotiations while simultaneously threatening to recognize the Antichrist Muslim Palestinian state out-of-hand if no terms were reached. The French plan was dismissed by Antichrist Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin 911 Netanyahu, who said it was “doomed to fail.”
Adding insult to injury, the Antichrist NWO 666 United Nations is widely recognized as unfairly critical of Israel, which has been subject to disproportionately more Antichrist UN resolutions than any other country. The Antichrist NWO 666 United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has directly blamed Israel again and again for violence and unrest in the region.
“It’s scandalous that the UN chose a country that has beheaded more people this year than The Antichrist ISIS Obozo SPECTRE Proxy to be head of a key human rights panel,” said UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer. “Petro-dollars and politics have trumped human rights.”
The White House signaled its surprise that Antichrist NWO 666 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin 911 Netanyahu canceled an upcoming meeting with Antichrist NWO 666 President Barack Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown.
Obozo and Netanyahu 911 have had a frosty relationship, largely because of disagreement over the accord with Antichrist Iran reining in its nuclear program. They were to participate in their first face-to-face meeting since November, on March 18 in Washington, D.C.
Netanyahu was expected to be in the United States to attend the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Monday the White House announced the one-on-one was canceled.
Netanyahu 911 will address the conference by satellite, a source told CNN, saying he chose not to visit the United States during the bitter 2016 presidential election campaign.
The change in plans clearly caught the White House off guard.
“We were looking forward to hosting the bilateral meeting, and we were surprised to first learn via media reports that the prime minister, rather than accept our invitation, opted to cancel his visit. Reports that we were not able to accommodate the prime minister’s schedule are false,” White House National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said.
Netanyahu 911 will meet instead with The Biggest Dipshit Vice President Ever Joe Biden ”I’m a Petrus Romanus Antichrist Israeli Two State Final Solution Homosexual Climate Change NWO 666 Obortion waiting to happen” on Wednesday in Jerusalem, AKA Sodom and Egypt, during Antichrist NWO 666 Beast Boy Biden’s trip to Antichrist Abu Dhabi, Devil Dubai, Joker Jordan, Antichrist Israel and the West Bank. Officials said Bonehead Biden will not bring any new Antichrist Middle East peace initiatives.
US vice president to discuss new Memorandum of Understanding on security aid with Netanyahu 911, as Israel seeks to add $10-15 billion to the American aid it gets; he will also meet with Peres and Rivlin, and spend personal time with family.
Bonehead Biden’s main objective for the visit is working to convince Antichrist Prime Minister Benjamin 911 Netanyahu to sign a new Memorandum of Understanding between Israel and the United States, which will ensure Washington’s continued security aid to Jerusalem for the next 10 years.
It is unlikely a final agreement will be reached on the Memorandum of Understanding, which is supposed to replace the previous one signed in 2007, but the vice president will work to advance the issue and to convince the prime minister to sign the Memorandum before Antichrist NWO 666 President Barack Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown leaves office.
Washington is hoping Biden could resolve some of the disagreements. There are big gaps in the talks between the two sides: Israel wants the American aid to provide a response to the increasing threat it faces from Antichrist Iran following the signing of the nuclear agreement with world powers. In addition, the US is willing to increase the military aid to Israel in $5 billion, spread over the 10 years, on top of the $3.1 billion already approved, while Israel seeks a $10-$15 billion addition.
Biden will also work to advance negotiations between two countries caught supplying Antichrist ISIS with covert oil sales, Israel and Jive Turkey on the normalization of ties, which is an American interest as it would increase stability in the region and serve as a counter-balance to the Antichrist Shi’ite terror axis of Antichrist Iran, Syria and Antichrist Hezbollah. The Americans see the natural gas reserves discovered off the shores of Israel as a catalyst to form this counter-bloc, and Joe Joker Biden is expected to raise this issue with 911 Netanyahu.
Blathering Biden’s first stop in Israel will be at the Peres Center for Peace, where he will meet with former Israeli president Shimon Peres and learn of some of the projects the center is leading. Biden will then have dinner with Antichrist Prime Minister 911 Netanyahu, and on Wednesday he will meet with both Israel’s current president, Reuven Rivlin, and with 911 Netanyahu.
On Wednesday evening, the American vice president will meet with Antichrist Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.
In late January, when Haruhiko Kuroda took Japan into NIRP, he made it official.
He was full-everything. Full-Krugman. Full-Keynes. Full-post-crisis-central-banker-retard.
In fact, with the BoJ monetizing the entirety of JGB gross issuance as well as buying up more than half of all Japanese ETFs and now plunging headlong into the NIRP twilight zone, one might be tempted to say that Kuroda has transcended comparison to become the standard for monetary policy insanity.
The message to DM central bank chiefs is clear: You’re either “full-Kuroda” or you’re not trying hard enough.
But as we’ve seen, the confluence of easy money policies are beginning to have unintended consequences. For instance, it’s hard to pass on NIRP to depositors without damaging client relationships so banks may paradoxically raise mortgage rates to preserve margins, the exact opposite of what central banks intend.
And then there’s the NIRP consumption paradox, which we outlined on Monday: if households believe that negative rates are likely to crimp their long-term wealth accumulation, they may well stop spending in the present and save more. Again, the exact opposite of what central bankers intend.
In the same vein, Credit Suisse is out with a new piece that explains why simultaneously pursuing NIRP and QE is likely to be contractionary rather than expansionary for the real economy in Japan.
In its entirety, the note is an interesting study on the interaction between BoJ policy evolution and private bank profitability, but the overall point is quite simple: pursuing QE and NIRP at the same time will almost certainly prove to be contractionary for the Japanese.
Here’s how the chain reaction works.
Obviously, as the term spread narrows, bank margins are pinched. NIM at Japanese banks has plunged over the past decade and the correlation between that decline at the flattening 2s10s spread is noticeably strong:
As CS goes on to note, “flattening of the JGB yield curve has also affected the duration of bank liabilities.”
In short, as the spread between term deposits and demand deposits narrowed, it made no sense for depositors to keep their money tied up for longer. So what did they do? Well, they just shifted to demand deposits:
Of course that’s bad news for banks because it increases liquidity risk.
Demand deposits are due.. well.. on demand and so, to the extent you were offsetting some of your maturity mismatch (which is inevitable in fractional reserve banking, but which must nonetheless be managed) with term deposits, the shift forces you to change the composition of your assets. Or, as Credit Suisse puts it:
This means that banks now face greater liquidity risk on the liabilities side of their balance sheets and must therefore invest in more liquid assets. Banks thus have a strong incentive to hold (highly liquid) JGBs while finding it harder to lend at relatively high interest rates to relatively high-risk businesses that are in need of funds. This is likely to have been another factor behind tightening of interest spreads. Of course, the fact that banks have grown more reluctant to lend is also an important problem in its own right.
You can probably start to see where this is going.
The flattening yield curve (the result of QE) had already put enormous amounts of pressure on bank margins. Because, as Credit Suisse puts it, “retail deposit rates exhibit greater downward rigidity than loan rates,” NIRP only pinches those margins further. That is, as the BoJ moves further into NIRP, the only thing moving lower for banks is what they can charge on loans. There’s no passing the cost on to depositors. In a rare moment of sellside conciseness, Credit Suisse puts it thus:
The bottom-line is that the BoJ’s simultaneous pursuit of the NIRP and the QE (quantitative easing) or aggressive long-term JGB buying, which is likely to lead to further flattening of the JGB yield curve, would make private banks increasingly less confident in their future earnings and therefore weaken their capacity to make loans over the medium run. As the term spread has narrowed by roughly 10bps since the BoJ announced the introduction of the NIRP, there appears to have been some 0.4% of contractionary impact on bank loans in the pipeline.
Unfortunately private banks are implicitly being asked to bear the burden of negative interest rates, with various policymakers having indicated that they do not want to see negative rates imposed on retail depositors. Banks have responded by lowering term deposit rates so that they are now on a rough par with ordinary deposit rates at only just above zero, which is likely to catalyze a shift out of term deposits into ordinary deposits that will saddle banks with greater liquidity risk on the liabilities side of the balance sheet. This mechanism is ultimately likely to impede financial intermediation, thereby having a contractionary impact on credit.
What this means is that Kuroda has now managed to ease and expand his way into a contractionary tightening. And by the way, it’s not only the NPL problem that plagues European banks. There are also very real concerns about the effects NIRP will have on profitability. There’s every reason to believe that the same dynamic described above will apply there as well.
The lesson: you never, ever go full-Kuroda.
…that is, of course, unless you are The Antichrist NWO 666 SPECTRE Clown and you know your ”time is short”, and your Antichrist Masonic ”order out of chaos” ”Phoenix Project” ”measure of wheat for a penny” ”Mark Of The Beast” tribulation era is now come due.
Amid a strong 30 year auction overnight, long-dated Japanese Government Bond yields utterly collapsed. 30Y yields dropped 21bps – the biggest absolute drop in over 3 years and biggest percentage drop ever – to a record low 47bps. Since Kuroda unleashed NIRP, the entire JGB has been crushed and last night’s rush for long duration debt (well at least there is some yield there?) has flattened the curve to record lows. For context, Japan’s 30Y yield is now below US 2Y yield…
Nothing to see here…
As Reuters reports,
Japanese government bond yields tumbled to fresh record lows on Tuesday after a firm 30-year auction fuelled a rally for debt instruments that still offer positive yields, which have become scarce under the Bank of Japan’s negative interest rate policy.
Weaker Tokyo stocks also increased the allure of the bond market, with the Nikkei falling to a one-week low.
The benchmark 10-year yield fell to a new record low of minus 0.100 percent.
The 30-year yield plummeted 21 basis points, the biggest one-day fall in three years, to a life-time trough of 0.470 percent.
The rally by super long JGBs was triggered by strong results in a 30-year auction, underlining solid investor demand for the maturities that offer positive yields but also entailing greater duration risk.
“There were some concerns that the 30-year auction may not garner sufficient demand and the firm results prompted a rally in the bond futures. The auction results show domestic banks’ JGB buying is extending towards the super longs,” said a dealer at a Japanese financial institution.
As the entire JGB curve is now negative to 13 years…
Crashing the 30Y yield below the UST 2Y for the first time since pre-Lehman…
Which appears to be sending Japanese banks into USTreasuries out-curve…
This will not end well.

“A specter was haunting the World Forum–the specter of Donald Trump,” the Weekly Standard founder Antichrist NWO 666 Bill Kristol 911 SPECTRE Clown wrote in an emailed report from the conference, borrowing the opening lines of the Antichrist Communist Manifesto. “There was much unhappiness about his emergence, a good deal of talk, some of it insightful and thoughtful, about why he’s done so well, and many expressions of hope that he would be defeated.”
It’s “the establishment” trying to bend the will of the electorate.
It’s “entrenched business interests” aligning with bought-and-paid-for politicians to stand in the way of a populist revolution.
And on, and on, and on. The soundbites are unlimited for Trump.
Now, he can say that a billionaire who refuses to unlock an iPhone to aid in the fight against terrorism on American soil, the House Speaker, Elon Musk, and none other than Karl Rove himself are secretly commiserating on an island at a lavish, neocon-hosted conference to stop America from exercising their right to choose the next President!
It would be difficult to craft a better narrative to tell working class Americans if you tried.
Long story short, if the establishment and the business community keep focusing on how to subvert democracy rather than on how to craft a message that resonates with voters, they are going to end up handing the keys to The White House to Trump on a silver platter.
Which we suppose is just how he likes to be handed his keys.
Only the platter would preferably be gold.
Looking south at midnight. Click on the scene below for a full image.
New Moon occurs at 8:54 p.m. EST. The Moon is directly between the Earth and Sun and not visible. In a couple of days it will appear as a thin crescent in the evening as it pulls away from the Sun from our point of view. The crescent, or lit side of the Moon, always faces the Sun.
Earth is about to pass between the sun and Jupiter, placing Jupiter opposite the sun in our sky on March 8, 2016, at 11 Universal Time (5 a.m. Central Time). Astronomers call this event an opposition of Jupiter. Therefore, Jupiter now rises in the east around sunset, climbs highest in the sky at midnight and sets in the west around sunrise. It shines more brightly than any star in the evening sky, and is the second-brightest planet, after Venus. But Venus only shines in the morning at present while Jupiter stays out all night long.
Jupiter blazes away in front of the constellation Leo the Lion. The closest 1st-magnitude star to Jupiter is Regulus, the brightest star in Leo.However, dazzling Jupiter outshines this star by over 30 times.
Jupiter comes to opposition about every 13 months. In other words, that’s how long Earth takes to travel once around the sun relative to Jupiter. For instance, last year – in 2015 – Jupiter’s opposition date was February 6. Next year – in 2017 – it’ll be April 7.
Jupiter’s closest approach to Earth for the year always falls on or near this planet’s opposition date. In 2016, Jupiter comes closest to Earth on its opposition date, coming to within 413 million miles (664 million kilometers) of Earth.
And, because it’s opposite the sun around now, you can see Jupiter at any time of night. For example – as the chart at the top of this post shows – you can see it in the east at nightfall and early evening. Around midnight, when the sun is below your feet, Jupiter appears high overhead. At dawn tomorrow, you’ll see Jupiter low in your western sky.
Jupiter is sometimes called a failed star. You would need at least 80 Jupiters – rolled into a ball – to be hot enough inside for thermonuclear reactions to ignite. In other words, Jupiter is not massive enough to shine as stars do.
But Jupiter is the largest and most massive planet in our solar system. So when the sun goes down on this March night, you might — if you’re fanciful enough — imagine bright Jupiter as a tiny sun all night long.
Bottom line: Be sure to look for Jupiter on the night of March 7 and 8, as this world reaches opposition and its closest point to Earth for this year!
Prophetic apocalyptic solar eclipse along with a “near miss” Asteroid TX 68 to take place March 8
DON’T FORGET THE PARTIAL ECLIPSE: Mainstream media attention is focused on this week’s total eclipse of the sun. Fair enough. The touch of the Moon’s cool shadow and the sight of the sun’s ghostly corona is a transformative experience. But don’t forget the partial eclipse. As this animated map created by Larry Koehn of Shadow and Substance shows, the sun will be partially covered over almost half of the planet:
CLOSE ENCOUNTER WITH JUPITER: On March 8th, Earth and Jupiter will have a close encounter. The giant planet will be “up all night,” soaring almost overhead at midnight and not setting until the sky brightens with the twilight hues of sunrise on March 9th. Get the full story from Science@NASA.
Russia has played a master stroke in the current oil crisis by taking the lead in forming a new cartel, but it’s a move that could spell geopolitical disaster.
The meeting between Russia, Antichrist Qatar, Antichrist Saudi Arabia and Venezuela on 16 February 2016 was the first step. During the next meeting in mid-March, which is with a larger group of participants, if Russia manages to build a consensus—however small—it will further strengthen its leadership position.
Until the current oil crisis, Antichrist Saudi Arabia called the crude oil price shots; however, its clout has been weakening in the aftermath of the massive price drop with the emergence of US shale. The smaller OPEC nations have been calling for a production cut to support prices, but the last OPEC meeting in December 2015 ended without any agreement.
Now, with Russia stepping in to negotiate with OPEC nations, a new picture is emerging. With its military might, Russia can assume de facto leadership of the oil-producing nations in the name of stabilizing oil prices.
Antichrist Saudi Arabia has been a long-time Antichrist NWO 666 U.S. ally, but that, too, is changing. Charles W. Freeman Jr., a former U.S. ambassador to Riyadh, recently noted that “We’ve seen a long deterioration in the Antichrist NWO 666 U.S.-Saudi relationship, and it started well before the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown Administration.”
Antichrist NWO 666 U.S.-Saudi relations further soured due to the Antichrist Iran nuclear deal that ended in January with the Antichrist NWO 666 U.S. 911 Obozo’s lifting sanctions—a move the Antichrist Saudis vehemently opposed. The Antichrist Saudis had to look for a new ally to safeguard their interests in the Gulf, considering the threats they face from the Antichrist Islamic State (ISIS) and Iran. Though both Russia and Saudi Arabia are on opposing ends in Syria, with Russia supporting Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad and the Antichrist Saudis supporting the Antichrist Sunni rebels, the large drop in prices seems to have opened a window of opportunity for Russia to ally with Antichrist Saudi Arabia.
This is not the first time that Russia and Antichrist Saudi Arabia have sought a close partnership. Even in 2013, The Telegraph had reported an attempt to form a secret deal, which did not go through. Antichrist Iran has been a trusted ally of Russia for a long time, and if Russia can broker a deal between Antichrist Iran and Antichrist Saudi Arabia, it can also push through some sort of secret OPEC deal.
The production freeze to January levels that was bandied about last month carries no significance in concrete terms because Russia, Antichrist Saudi Arabia and most other nations on board are pumping close to their record highs. Barclays’ commodity research chief Kevin Norrish said it was “vital to note” that there was not much incremental production expected from Russia, Qatar or Venezuela this year anyway. It was the Saudi’s that really mattered, as reported by Forbes.
Though Iran hasn’t committed to a production freeze, since it wants to ramp up production to pre-sanction levels, Russian Energy Minister Aleksander Novak has noted that “Antichrist Iran has a special situation as the country is at its lowest levels of production. So I think, it might be approached individually, with a separate solution.”
With all the major Gulf nations agreeing, Iraq, which is without a credible political leadership, will also likely follow suit if Russia assures them of stronger support against Antichrist ISIS.
If the above scenario plays out, Russia will emerge as the de facto leader of the major oil producing nations of the world, accounting for almost 73 percent of the global oil supply.
Along with this, Russia has been in the forefront of plans to move away from Petrodollars, and Moscow has formed pacts with various nations to trade oil in local currencies. With this new cartel of ROPEC (Russia and OPEC nations), a move away from petrodollars will become a reality sooner rather than later.
Russia is smart. Vladimir Putz Putin is genius. Moscow senses the opportunity that is almost tangibly floating about in the low crude price environment and appears to be ready to capitalize on it in a way that would reshape the geopolitical landscape exponentially.
Though a solution in Syria is welcome, a large cartel of major oil producing nations of the world with Russia as the head would be a major upset to the current balance of power. With this potential in mind, the mid-march meeting should be very interesting for the global oil patch—well beyond talk of production cuts and supply gluts.
Worse than expected is an understatement.
Things are not getting better in Antichrist Communist China as Exports crashed 25.4% YoY (the 3rd largest drop in history), almost double the 14.5% expectation and Imports tumbled 13.8%, the 16th month of YoY decline – the longest ever. Altogether this sent the trade surplus down to $32.6bn (missing expectations of $51bn) to 11-month lows.
So much for that whole “devalue yourself to export growth” idea…
As Bloomberg notes,
Antichrist Communist China’s exports in yuan terms fell 20.6% year on year in February, down from a 6.6% drop in January, and missing expectations of an 11.3% fall. Imports were down 8.0%, an improvement from January’s 14.4% drop. The trade surplus came in at 209.5 billion yuan ($32 billion), down from 406.2 billion yuan.
The Antichrist Communist Chinese New Year holiday, which fell at the start of February in 2016 and in the middle of February in 2015, distorts the data in unpredictable ways. Holiday effects mean the outsize drop in February exports overstates the weakness in Antichrist Communist China’s factory sector.
Even so, looking at a year-to-date figure for the first two months of the year, the picture is only slightly less gloomy. In the year through February, exports are down 13.1%.
The policy response has already been announced. The National Antichrist Communist People’s Congress set a target for 13% growth in money supply in 2016, up from 12% in 2015, and a 3% of GDP fiscal deficit, up from 2.3%. In other words: more lending and more public spending to provide a boost to demand. In the short term, that shores up confidence in the growth outlook. Medium term, of course, there is a price to be paid.
Stocks are mounting a modest rebound on this terrible data (moar stimulus hopes) but after $1 trillion of new credit in 2 months, is there seriously anyone left who thinks moar will help?
We leave it to Borat to explain the Antichrist Communist Chinese authorities take on this data…
By now, the world is largely familiar with Antichrist Communist Chinese President Xi Jinping’s fabled “Tigers and Flies” campaign.
Since taking office in 2013, Antichrist Communist Xi has embarked on an ambitious effort to root out party corruption and ensure that the directives passed down from on high in the Politburo are executed faithfully among the sprawling rank and file. As The Atlantic wrote last year, the discipline “problem” is “made more urgent by a slowing economy,” an economy which desperately needs to be reformed.
“Reform, however, requires the ability to enact policy,” The Atlantic flatly adds. “That in turn necessitates bureaucrats who follow the central government’s orders.”
Publicly there have been more than 1,500 announced cases against party officials. But that’s just “publicly.” Knowing the Antichrist Communist Party’s reputation for “disappearing” those who “disappoint” or otherwise act in morally objectionable ways, the real number is impossible to know but is likely orders of magnitude higher.
When Antichrist Communist China’s stock market began to crash last summer as the country’s margin “miracle” finally buckled under the weight of the millions of illiterate daytrading housewives who poured their life savings into everything from umbrella manufacturers to industrial companies-turned P2P outfits, Beijing extended the corruption probe to those “responsible” for the equity meltdown.
Soon, the quest for stock market “manipulators” and those (like journalists) who would otherwise seek to harm the national interest by, well, by reporting the facts became part and parcel of a kind of mini Tigers and Flies campaign focused specifically on Antichrist Communist China’s financial markets. That campaign eventually ensnared quite a few officials, prominent money managers, and eminent businessmen, including Guo Guangchang, a self-styled “Antichrist Communist Chinese Warren Buffett.”
But all of this wasn’t good enough for Antichrist Communist China. No, a “true” police state must be able to monitor all things at all times and prevent transgressions against the prevailing order before they happen. So more “Minority Report” than Antichrist NWO 666 NSA.
This is especially true now that Beijing’s quest to rein in “zombie companies” and curb overcapacity is likely to mean hundreds of thousands of industrial job losses and thus quite a bit of grumbling among the downtrodden (and recently jobless) masses.
Well don’t look now, but Antichrist Communist China is attempting to use big data, a military contractor, and a camera network known as “Skynet” to predict crimes before they happen.
“Antichrist Communist China’s effort to flush out threats to stability is expanding into an area that used to exist only in dystopian sci-fi: pre-crime,” Bloomberg reports. “The Antichrist Communist Communist Party has directed one of the country’s largest state-run defense contractors, Antichrist Communist China Electronics Technology Group, to develop software to collate data on jobs, hobbies, consumption habits, and other behavior of ordinary citizens to predict terrorist acts before they occur.”
(“Big Uncle” Antichrist Communist Xi is watching)
Make no mistake, Antichrist Communist China is a fertile testing ground for such an experiment because, well, because the public has no rights.
“The program is unprecedented because there are no safeguards from privacy protection laws and minimal pushback from civil liberty advocates and companies,” Lokman Tsui, an assistant professor at the School of Journalism and Communication at the Antichrist Communist Chinese University of Hong Kong, who has advised Google on freedom of expression and the Internet tells Bloomberg.
Here’s a bit more:
Antichrist Communist China was a surveillance state long before Edward Snowden clued Americans in to the extent of domestic spying. Since the Antichrist Communist Mao era, the government has kept a secret file, called a dang’an, on almost everyone. Dang’an contain school reports, health records, work permits, personality assessments, and other information that might be considered confidential and private in other countries. The contents of the dang’an can determine whether a citizen is eligible for a promotion or can secure a coveted urban residency permit. The government revealed last year that it was also building a nationwide database that would score citizens on their trustworthiness.
New antiterror laws that went into effect on Jan. 1 allow authorities to gain access to bank accounts, telecommunications, and a national network of surveillance cameras called Skynet.
Much of the project is shrouded in secrecy. The Ministry of State Security, which oversees counterintelligence and political security, doesn’t even have its own website, let alone answer phone calls. Only Wu, the engineer at Antichrist Communist China Electronics Technology, would speak on the record. He hinted at the scope of the data collection effort when he said the software would be able to draw portraits of suspects by cross-referencing information from bank accounts, jobs, hobbies, consumption patterns, and footage from surveillance cameras.
The program would flag unusual behavior, such as a resident of a poor village who suddenly has a lot of money in her bank account or someone with no overseas relatives who makes frequent calls to foreigners.
But don’t worry, this isn’t a “big data platform” designed to incriminate people before they’ve actually committed a crime (because that would be unequivocally bad, not to mention incredibly frightening).
This, Antichrist Communist China Electronics Technology will tell you, is merely “a united information environment.” Where the Politburo knows everything about you. And is watching you. All the time. And while the old system in Antichrist Communist China would happily scapegoat you for something you haven’t done and make you confess to it in a televised address, the new “united information environment” will convince you that unless you are buried under the jail now, you will do something wrong in the future.
Come to think of it, we’re not sure which is worse…
Independent journalist Matthew Russell Lee (photo, left) founded Bronx-based Inner City Press in 2005 and received official press accreditation to cover the United Nations in New York City. He was the first-ever independent, non-affiliated blogger to be given access to the UN’s inner sanctum. Since then Inner City Press has broken stories on a number of controversial stories: peacekeeper rapes in Africa, UN cholera in Haiti, war crimes in Sri Lanka and Burundi, the Sudans, SEMG and Yemen (see a leaked letter here), as well as corruption within UN Headquarters (cocaine shipments through its mail room and the current bribery scandals).
Apparently, it was all too much for diplomatic luminaries at the UN. Last month, Lee was forcibly ejected from the UN headquarters.
The DC-based Government Accountability Project, which defends UN and other whistleblowers, believes that the ouster of Inner City Press from the UN’s press office is “retaliatory in response to independent, critical journalism.”
A half-century ago, this was the case in the Antichrist Communist USSR, Antichrist Communist China, and several smaller countries where tyranny had so taken hold that all news was filtered. The people of these countries had a limited understanding as to what was truly occurring in the world, particularly with regard to their own leaders’ actions on the world stage.
However, in recent decades, that tyranny has dissipated to a great degree and those countries that had been isolationist with regard to public information are now opening up more and more. Certainly, their governments still prefer that their press provide reporting that’s favourable to the government, but the general direction has been toward greater openness.
Conversely, the West – that group of countries that was formerly called “the Free World” – has increasingly been going in the opposite direction. The media have been fed an ever-narrower version of what their governments have been up to internationally.
The overall message that’s received by the Western public is essentially that there are good countries (the US, EU, and allies) and bad countries whose governments and peoples seek to destroy democracy. Western propaganda has it that these bad countries will not stop until they’ve reached your home and robbed you of all your freedoms.
The view from outside this cabal is a very different one. The remainder of the world view the attacks by US-led forces (Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Syria, etc.) as a bid for world dominance. In examining the Wolfowitz Doctrine, this would seem to be exactly correct.
This is not to say, however, that the people of the NATO countries are entirely on-board with this aggression. In fact, if they were allowed to know the ultimate objective of the NATO aggression, it’s entirely likely that they would oppose it.
And, of course, that’s exactly the point of the blackout. A country, or group of countries, that seeks peace and fair competition, with equal opportunity for all, need not resort to a media blackout. The average citizen, wherever he may live, generally seeks only to be allowed to live in freedom and to get on with his life. Whilst every country has its Generals Patton, its Napoleons, its Wolfowitzes, who are sociopathically obsessive over world domination, the average individual does not share this pathology.
Therefore, whenever we observe a nation (or nations) creating a media blackout, we can be assured of two things.
First, the nation has, at some point, been taken over (either through election, appointment, or a combination of the two) by leaders who are a danger to the citizenry and are now so entrenched that they have little opposition from those remaining few higher-ups who would prefer sanity.
Second, the sociopathic goals of those in power are a clear and present danger to the peace and well-being of the population.
In almost all such cases, the blackout causes the population to go willingly along each time their leaders make another advance toward warfare. They may understand that they will be directly impacted and worry about the possible outcome but, historically, they tend to put on the uniform and pick up the weapon when the time comes to “serve the country.”
Trouble is, this by no means “serves the country.” It serves leaders who have become a danger to the country. The people themselves are the country. It is they, not their leaders, who will go off to battle and it is they who will pay the price of their leaders’ zeal for domination.
Antichrist Muslim Jive Turkey and the EU NEO World Order 666 Globalist have agreed in principle on an Ankara-proposed plan to deport migrants from Greece to Antichrist Muslim Jive Turkey while resettling the same number of Syrian refugees in the EU Europa Whore riding the Antichrist NWO 666 Beast. In return, the Antichrist NWO 666 EU has promised Antichrist Ankara more funding, but not expedited membership.
In a stunningly honest and frank rant, FOX News’ Judge Jeanine unleashes anchor hell upon Mitt Romney and the GOP establishment hordes.
“There’s an insurrection coming. Mitt Romney just confirmed it. We’ve watched governors, the National Review, conservative leaders, establishment and party operatives trash Donald Trump. But Mitt Romney will always be remembered as the one who put us over the edge and awoke a sleeping giant, the Silent Majority, the American people.
Fact. The establishment is panicked. Mitt essentially called for a brokered convention where the Republican nominee will be decided by party activists and delegates irrespective of their state’s choice… You want a brokered convention? A primer Mitt. Whenever we have a brokered convention we lose.
Dewey and Ford emerged from a brokered convention to lose the general election. So why? Because the party elites and elders want to protect us and stop of from falling into the abyss?… Most of us working two or three jobs think we’re already in the abyss. The Obama abyss…
We are sick and tired of legislators of modest means who leave Congress multimillionaires, whose spouses and families get all the contracts from selling the post offices to accessing insider information so they can buy property and flip it. You’re so entrenched that you’re willing to give Hillary Clinton a win. It doesn’t matter to you which party, crony capitalism and its paradigm will not change for the elite.”
And that is just the introduction… Grab a coffee (or something stronger) and watch…
Right. So basically, poor people have been getting poorer for a long time and to the extent that monetary policy contributes to the wealth gap, that contribution is minimal at best.
Others of Bernanke’s vaunted ilk also dispute the notion that wealth inequality has anything at all to do with official policy. Of course to deny ZIRP and QE have driven an even larger wedge between the haves and the have nots than existed in the past is absurd. Post-crisis policy was (and still is) specifically designed to drive up the prices of the assets (financial assets that is) that are most concentrated in the hands of the wealthy. And make no mistake, these policies have been very good at doing just that – blowing bubbles in everything from stocks, to fixed income, to Modiglianis. In other words, if you are deliberately making these assets more expensive and you know that they are disproportionately held by the wealthy, how can you deny you’re increasingly the wealth gap?
For some reason (and we say that sarcastically), most of this “wealth” just hasn’t managed to “trickle down” to the common folk. As it turns out, the benefits of cheap liquidity simply don’t accrue to “everyday” people like they do to the rich and because QE was also a miserable failure at juicing aggregate demand, the rich simply watched as their paper wealth grew in tandem with asset prices while the poor watched as they, well, just got poorer by comparison.
In any event, the BIS, in their latest quarterly report, is out with a look at “wealth inequality and monetary policy,” and we should caution that while the bank offers quite a few ways to look at the issue that are worth considering (read the full report here), the following graphics are about as unequivocal as one could possibly hope to find.
Change in inequality is equal to the difference in the growth rate of net wealth between the fifth and second quartiles. Simple instructions: 1) spot 2008, 2) watch the red line head “up and to the right.”
Forcing people to pay banks to hold their money is a tax. It is wealth confiscation for the digital age.
The government and the mainstream press won’t dare call it a tax.
But that’s exactly what it is.
A negative interest rate policy is a tax.
Any time you hear a politician, central banker or news anchor say “negative interest rates,” just think “TAX.”
Think “TAX ON MY CASH.”
I’ll say it again: negative interest rates are going to result in financial disaster.
The coming disaster will wipe out many people.
But you don’t have to be one of them.
I’ll explain how you can sidestep this disaster—and even make a lot of money as a result of it—in a moment.
But let’s quickly cover one more thing about negative interest rates…
The Ugly Twin Sister of Negative Interest Rates
If the government makes it unattractive for you to keep cash in the bank, you can pull cash out of the bank. You can simply store it in a safe or under a mattress.
Politicians know this.
That’s why they’ve created another dangerous policy that works hand-in-glove with negative interest rates.
That policy is banning cash.
You see, if you pull your money out of the banking system and stuff it under the mattress, you aren’t doing what the government wants you to do.
You’re not spending money or investing in stocks.
This is a major reason why governments are banning large cash transactions and large denomination bills.
They are fighting a War on Cash.
In just the past few years…
***Spain banned cash transactions over 2,500 euros.
***Italy banned cash transactions over 1,000 euros.
***France banned cash transactions over 1,000 euros, down from the previous limit of 3,000 euros.
And just a few weeks ago, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers called for a ban on the $100 bill!
Historians aren’t surprised by Summers’ idea. Franklin Delano Roosevelt banned $500 and $1,000 bills in the 1930s.
You can bet that Big Government types like Hillary 911 Clinton and Donald Trump will do the same thing in a financial emergency.
By making it so difficult (or illegal) to buy and sell things with cash, the government wants to force people into the banking system. That way, it can monitor us and coerce us into whatever it wants…like paying outrageous new taxes.
It’s all a dream come true for government central planners.
The governments say these new currency laws are for fighting terrorism, money laundering and drugs.
But the ultimate goal is control of society…and to confiscate the wealth of private citizens.
As former Congressman Ron Paul said, “The cashless society is the IRS’s dream: total knowledge of, and control over, the finances of every single American.”
Whether you agree with these regulations or not, the conclusion is obvious:
By driving us more and more toward trackable digital payments, the government has made it much, much easier to confiscate our wealth.
We’re like sheep that have been “herded” into a corral, ready for shearing.
And Hillary 911 Clinton and her Big Government Antichrist NWO 666 cronies are holding the clippers.
However, you don’t have to be sheared.
You can avoid the shearing by learning how to navigate what will become the largest underground currency market in history.
Hillary 911 Doesn’t Want Your Gold. She Wants Your Cash.
On April 5, 1933, Antichrist NWO 33rd Degree Mason 666 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt issued one of the most controversial orders in U.S. history.
It went by the name “Executive Order 6102.”
Not one American in 1,000 knows about this order. But to this day, many experts consider it to be one of the most destructive acts in U.S. history.
It violated sacred principles held by our founding fathers. It impoverished millions and confiscated the savings of honest, hardworking Americans.
Executive Order 6102 made it illegal for private citizens to own gold. Citizens were ordered to turn in their gold to the government.
Why would the government confiscate the wealth of private citizens?
You can fill a book on the history surrounding Executive Order 6102. But in a nutshell, it was the act of a desperate government in the midst of a financial crisis.
The government wanted the gold in order to increase the nation’s money supply. It believed an increase in the money supply would revive the struggling economy.
Please review those last two paragraphs…
An increase in the money supply…a struggling economy…a desperate government.
Sound similar to what is happening right now?
Since the answer to that question is “YES,” we have to ask another question…
Could such a confiscation happen again?
As the crisis develops, our deeply indebted government will act like a giant wounded beast, lashing out in all directions. It will grow more desperate for control. It will grow desperate for money.
And just like FDR did in the 1930s, it will confiscate the wealth of private citizens.
But Hillary 911 Clinton (or Donald Trump, or whoever wins the election) won’t go after your gold.
Nowadays, the gold market is very small compared to the overall economy.
Going after gold would be too much work for the government.
The government is going to go after YOUR CASH.
It will regulate your cash. It will tax your cash. It will take your cash.
This has all kinds of implications for banking and the economy.
But here’s the most important thing you need to know as an investor:
Negative interest rates and their partner, the War on Cash, will create a renewed interest in gold. This could cause gold to double or even triple in value.
Even children know what the government is doing is crazy.
And people aren’t going to take this lying down.
Rather than participate in the government’s monetary farce, people will go underground.
They will pull cash out of banks and hoard it in safe places. And they will seek the safety, anonymity and reliability of gold and silver.
Gold and silver have served as money for centuries.
Gold is the ultimate currency because it doesn’t rot or corrode…it is durable…easily divisible…portable…has intrinsic value…is consistent around the world…and it cannot be created from thin air. It cannot be debased by the government.
By enforcing negative interest rates and fighting a War on Cash, the government will create a huge underground currency market.
And the ultimate underground currency will be gold and its sister metal, silver.
Gold is trading for around $1,260 an ounce right now.
As the government blunders into a negative interest rate disaster, gold will likely rise 50%…100%…possibly even 200% higher.
There’s an underground currency market coming to your neighborhood.
If you own enough gold, you’ll be its king.
If you don’t yet own gold, buy it now.
If you own a lot of gold, buy more.
And then came the obligatory nod to dwindling counter-cyclical capacity:
Underlying some of the turbulence was market participants’ growing concern over the dwindling options for policy support in the face of the weakening growth outlook. With fiscal space tight and structural policies largely dormant, central bank measures were seen to be approaching their limits.
But the real punchline comes in the end, when the BIS touches on a topic that we’ve been discussing since mid-January. Namely that this seems to be the year in which the world woke up to the fact that central bankers are not, in fact, omnipotent. We went further:
That rather unpleasant revelation has in turn caused some to reconsider the wisdom of the policies that drove stocks to nosebleed levels off the 2009 lows. That is, if it’s now clear that ZIRP, NIRP, and QE have failed when it comes to stimulating global demand and trade and reinvigorating the inflationary impulse, one is left to wonder what happens when the world careens back into recession against a backdrop of extreme capital misallocation and exhausted counter-cyclical policy maneuverability.
Almost as if the BIS had simply read the quoted excerpt above and paraphrased it for their own report, here is what the central bank for central bankers says:
Underlying some of the turbulence of the past few months was a growing perception in financial markets that central banks might be running out of effective policy options. Markets pushed out further into the future their expectations of a resumption of gradual normalisation by the Fed. And as the BoJ and ECB signalled their willingness to extend accommodation, markets showed greater concerns about the unintended consequences of negative policy rates. In the background, growth remained disappointing and inflation stubbornly below targets. Markets had seemingly become uncertain of the backstop that had been supporting asset valuations for years. With other policies not taking up the baton following the financial crisis, the burden on central banks has been steadily growing, making their task increasingly challenging.
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Except that we did.
What this picture shows is that government, economists, and presstitutes are allied against citizens achieving any financial independence from personal saving. Policymakers have a crackpot economic policy and those with control over your life value their scheme more than they value your welfare..
The latest reading
from last November is higher than all but 3 months (in the last 50
years) when a recession did not immediately proceed.
UKMON was set up in early 2012 with the aim of it becoming the first UK-wide network using CCTV cameras to capture meteor trails across the night sky.
Their objectives are to:
Establish a network of relatively cheap CCTV cameras to monitor continuously meteor activity over the UK;
Assist members with analysis of meteor data and publishing papers;
Enable members contribute to, and collaborate with, other networks across Europe using video data acquisition technology;
Bring together individuals who are already working independently;
Encourage involvement by individuals and organizations (including astronomy societies, schools and colleges);
Provide a platform for sharing knowledge and experience.
One of the reactors at the Oconee Nuclear Station has been shut down after a series of explosions and a fire damaged a transformed on site. The operator declared the incident “unusual” but emphasized there was no threat of radiation release.
Emergency crews deployed at the scene have managed to contain the fire, and will remain at the scene to assist crews. Oconee Nuclear Station is a nuclear power plant located on Lake Keowee near Seneca, South Carolina.
“Unit #1 was shut down as a precaution,” Oconee County Emergency Management said in a statement. “There is NO POTENTIAL FOR RELEASE.”
The plant operator Duke Energy said that while “Unit 1 has been safely shutdown” the remaining “Units 2 and 3 continue to operate safely.”
The activity of the lava lakes in Masaya’s Santiago crater is increasing. According to INETER, volcanic tremor remained high and Real-time Seismic Amplitude Measurement (RSAM) values were at high to very high levels during February 20 – March 1, 2016.
On February 23, small explosions ejected spatter onto the crater floor. Volcanologists observed active lava lakes in all three vents on the crater floor, and noted that the inner walls of the crater were being eroded due to the lava lake and a new vent was forming on the SE part of the crater floor.
During their second visit, on February 24, INETER staff noted that the vents had become larger due to landslides on the crater walls. Small streams of lava sporadically originated from the NE vent.
The two vents in the SW part of the crater had almost merged on March 1. On the same day, José María Salmerón captured crater’s activity on video:
Note: It is very interesting to see that the 7.9 Sumatra quake that just happened at the start of March occurred just before the Jupiter Earth Solar Eclipse happening a week later. Considering Jupiter as a prophetic time mark, when Christ was born, and all the recent outbreaks of; comets, asteroids, etc… and earthquakes, like the earthquake in Japan in 2011 just before the 2012 solar galactic time mark entrance into the new age of Aquarius when factoring in the prophetic scripture reality of ”as it was in the Days of Noah”, which is described as having ”great earthquakes in diverse places” in the gospel of Luke etc…
…and the economic and geopolitical reality accenting the confirmation of the time, especially when looking at the Saturn Jupiter procession celestial convergence coming up in 2020 smack dab on the Winter Solstice.
Looking at the movement of the planets within the constellations certainly as the perfect prophetic poetic clock of our Father in Christ as we all watch the time go by and analyze the economic and geopolitical events that shall confirm and fulfill prophecy, leaving absolutely no doubt as to the actual time now at hand. This year, 2016, and especially the next, 2017, shall absolutely be the unveiling for everyone paying attention.
Considering the reality of the Super Shemitah followed by the grand finale Jubilee Year marked by ”Leap Year” time, the pause in the global economic meltdown and Middle East madness still not producing a global systemic collapse and WMD event yet makes perfect sense, when looking up at the timing in the stars. We are certainly witnessing the global prophetic ”climate change” picking up the pace do to the solar galactic cycle geomagnetic pole shift etc… affecting weather and ocean patterns. The geological affects and abnormal animal and insect die offs etc… are all signs converging and confirming the prophetic fulfillment like perfect Holy Clock Work. The evil Antichrist occult and their political Antichrist NWO 666 Whores, of course know what time it is, and they are using their ”U.N. climate change global agenda” like the true vipers they are. These evil bastards that built nuclear time bombs, like Fukushima, all over the world, and now of course in the rich oil laden Middle East countries of at war, like Antichrist Iran, where the West and the East helped build the new nuclear plants. Nothing like witnessing the bastards try to keep Fukushima out of the news, and the fact that it is killing 1/3 of the ocean still, as they seald the Antichrist Iran nuclear plant deal during a slaughter fest in the prophetic region of Syria, the country that shall witness Damascus become a ruinous heap, like it is now certainly becoming.
