February Fireballs Lunar Eclipse Regulus Occultation
“If the world hates you [and it does], know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you belonged to the world, the world would love [you as] its own and would treat you with affection. But you are not of the world [you no longer belong to it], but I have chosen you out of the world. And because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember [and continue to remember] that I told you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.
21 But they will do all these [hurtful] things to you for My name’s sake [because you bear My name and are identified with Me], for they do not know the One who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have [the guilt of their] sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin.
23 The one who hates Me also hates My Father. 24 If I had not done among them the works (attesting miracles) which no one else [ever] did, they would not have [the guilt of their] sin; but now [the fact is that] they have both seen [these works] and have hated Me [and continue to hate Me] and My Father as well.
25 But [this is so] that the word which has been written in their Law would be fulfilled, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’
26 “But when the [d]Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me. 27 But you will testify also and be My witnesses, because you have been with Me from the beginning.
They hate you.
Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do.
You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn.
Crazy talk? Just ask them. Go ahead. Go on social media. Find a leftist – it’s easy. Just say something positive about America or Jesus and they’ll come swarming like locusts. Engage them and very quickly they will drop their masks and tell you what they really think. I know. I keep a rapidly expanding file of Twitter leftist death wish screenshots.
They will tell you that Christians are idiots and vets are scum.
That normals are subhumans whose role is to labor as serfs to subsidize the progressive elite and its clients.
That you should die to make way for the New Progressive Man/Woman/Other.
Understand that when they call Donald Trump “illegitimate,” what they are really saying is that our desire to govern ourselves is illegitimate. Their beef isn’t with him – it’s with us, the normal people who dared rise up and demand their right to participate in the rule of this country and this culture.
They hate you, because by defying them you have prevented them from living up to the dictates of their false religion. Our rebelliousness has denied them the state of grace they seek, exercising their divine right to dictate every aspect of our puny lives. Their sick faith gives meaning to these secular weirdos, giving them something that fills their empty lives with a messianic fervor to go out and conquer and convert the heathens.
And the heathens are us.
Oh, there are different leftist sects. There are the social justice warriors who have manufactured a bizarre mythology and scripture of oppression, privilege, and intersectionality. Instead of robes, they dress up as genitals and kill babies as a blasphemous sacrament. Then there are the pagan weather religion oddballs convinced that the end is near and that we must repent by turning in our SUVs. Of course, the “we” is really “us” – high priests of the global warming cult like Leonardo DiCaprio will still jet around the world with supermodels while we do the ritual sacrificing of our modern comforts. Then there are the ones who simply worship themselves, the elitists who believe that all wisdom and morality has been invested in them merely because they went to the right college, think the right thoughts, and sneer at anyone living between I-5 and I-95.
“But be on your guard; they will turn you over to courts, and you will be beaten in synagogues, and you will stand [as accused] before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them.
10 The gospel [that is, the good news regarding the way of salvation] must first be preached to all the [Gentile] nations. 11 When they take you and turn you over [to the court], do not worry beforehand about what to say, but say whatever is given to you [by God] in that hour; for it is not you who speak, but it is the Holy Spirit [who will speak through you].
12 Brother will betray brother to [be put to] death, and a father [will hand over] his child; and children will rise up and take a stand against parents and have them put to death.
13 You will be hated by everyone because of [your association with] My name, but the one who [patiently perseveres empowered by the Holy Spirit and] endures to the end, he will be saved.
Astronomers have discovered a giant black hole that’s so hungry, it’s been gorging on a star for more than a decade — more than 10 times longer than any stellar meal detected before.
Not only is this by far the largest meal a black hole has been seen consuming, but the feast has been going on so long that scientists aren’t quite sure how it’s been sustained without bending the laws of physics. And the answer could tell us how black holes in the early days of the Universe grew more massive than we’ve been able to explain.
When a star gets too close to a black hole, the black hole’s immense gravitational force can rip the star apart — an event known as a tidal disruption event (TDE).
We’ve seen plenty of these TDE’s in the past, thanks to the distinct X-ray flare they produce. After the black hole destroys a star, it flings some of its contents into space at high speeds, and devours the rest, growing larger and blasting out a super hot flare of X-ray radiation in the process.
But most TDEs are short-lived affairs, which is why the new observation is so surprising.
“We have witnessed a star’s spectacular and prolonged demise,” said lead researcher Dacheng Lin from the University of New Hampshire in Durham.
“Dozens of tidal disruption events have been detected since the 1990s, but none that remained bright for nearly as long as this one.”
In fact, that feast has been going on for so long, it’s pushing the limits of physics — the star being consumed has consistently surpassed something called the Eddington limit, which is the maximum luminosity a star can achieve before it’s no longer stable.
The idea is that if a star is pushing out enough radiation to get this bright, then gravity should barely be able to hold it together. And for that reason we’ve never really been able to understand how supermassive black holes at the centre of many galaxies, including our Milky Way, grew as big as they are.
This record-breaking hungry black hole is nicknamed XJ1500+0154, and exists at the core of a small galaxy about 1.8 billion light-years away.
It was spotted by a trio of satellites — NASA’s Chandra X-ray observatory and Swift satellite, as well as the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton.
The satellites were hunting for TDEs when they stumbled across the incredibly bright flare emitted by XJ1500+0154 back in 2005.
They’ve been observing it ever since, and although it appears the meal is now winding up, the team’s evidence suggests that the black hole was consuming the star’s material for well over 10 years.
That means this is either the most massive star we’ve ever seen get caught up in a TDE, or it’s the first time we’ve seen a smaller star get completely torn apart.
For most of the time we’ve been looking at this object, it has been growing rapidly,” said one of the researchers, James Guillochon from the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics.
“This tells us something unusual — like a star twice as heavy as our Sun — is being fed into the black hole.”
The fact that we now have early evidence that black holes can eat something so massive — and grow so ginormous as a result — opens up a while new world of possibilities when it comes to black holes.
We need to keep in mind that the research has only been published on the pre-print site arXiv.org for the physics community to pore over before it’s submitted to a peer-reviewed journal, peer-reviewed journal, so we need to wait for independent validation of the results before we get too carried away.
Importantly, if confirmed, this observation could help explain how supermassive black holes were able to get about a billion times more massive than our Sun in the early days of the Universe — something researchers have struggled to explain.
“This event shows that black holes really can grow at extraordinarily high rates,” said team member Stefanie Komossa of Antichrist Communist China’s QianNan Normal University for Nationalities.
“This may help understand how precocious black holes came to be.”
The team predicts that XJ1500+0154’s feeding supply should be greatly reduced in the next decade, causing the black hole to fade in X-ray brightness and disappear from the satellites’ view.
Whether or not that happens remains to be seen, but astronomers will be watching the black hole closely.
NASA’s Chandra X-Ray Observatory has observed very strange and distinctive X-ray signal coming from our Milky Way Galaxy that researchers believe can help them in proving the existence of the mysterious dark side of the universe.
That is the claim of US scientists who analyzed the energy spectrum of X-rays gathered by Nasa’s Chandra satellite who found more X-ray photons with a particular energy than would be expected if they were generated by the decay of dark matter particles, say the researchers. This is not the first time that scientists have seen extra photons with an energy of about 3,500 electronvolts (3.5 keV) in the spectra recorded by X-ray satellites.
The researchers found that the strength of their 3.5 keV signal was consistent with data from Nasa’s X-ray satellite, the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuStar). With no obvious interference within the satellite itself, the researchers concluded that the signal is unlikely to be caused by instrumental noise.
“This result is very exciting,” said Dr Abazajian, a cosmologist at the University of California, Irvine who was not involved in the research. “It makes it more likely that the line is due to dark matter, which makes up more than 80% of all the mass in the Universe. As its name suggests, it gives off no light, but reveals its presence through the gravitational pull it exerts on stars within galaxies.
The latest research, which targets relatively light particles of dark matter, has been carried out by Nico Cappelluti of the Yale Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics in Connecticut, US, and colleagues. His colleague, Esra Bulbul of the Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) was the first scientist to spot an anomalous line at 3.5 keV, when looking at the X-ray spectra of large numbers of galaxy clusters in 2014. Researchers elsewhere have seen a line with the same energy in spectra from a variety of other objects, including the Andromeda and Milky Way galaxies, which are thought to be enveloped in a bubble of dark matter.
The researchers are heartened by the fact that four different satellites have now seen the same signal but are not ready to claim discovery of dark matter because, they say, it is still possible that their result is a statistical fluke – that the Chandra Observatory just happened to snare more X-rays with an energy of 3.5 keV than it did others. “As we collect more and more X-ray data, the evidence for the 3.5 keV line is growing and growing,” said Cappelluti.
Astrophysicists have been scanning the Milky Way for years for the photons generated when dark matter particles either annihilate with one another or decay. The so-called weakly-interacting massive particles (WIMPs) are believed by some researchers to be responsible for unusual emissions of gamma rays seen coming from the center of the Milky Way. While others think sources such as pulsars are probably the cause.
To establish whether dark matter could be the source, they compared Chandra’s spectra to those of X-rays from the center of the Milky Way that had been detected by the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton satellite. As expected, they found the signal in the latter to be stronger, given that dark matter should be densest where there are more stars as found in the galactic center.
The researchers also ruled out a couple of alternative astrophysical sources for the signal: photons emitted either when very large black holes suck in material from their surroundings or when ions of sulphur take electrons from hydrogen in the centre of galaxy clusters. “We found that our result is consistent with previous results if you assume the cause to be dark matter,” said Bulbul.
Others, however, urge caution. Dan Hooper, a particle theorist at Fermilab near Chicago, points out that a number of other studies have failed to see the line, including one by a group analysing data from the Japanese space agency’s (Jaxa) ill-fated Hitomi X-ray satellite that malfunctioned just over a month after launch in February 2016, but managed to collect enough data to disprove a previously claimed sighting of the 3.5 keV line in the Perseus galaxy cluster.
“The new paper claims a modest detection,” said Dr Hooper, “but it doesn’t sway me very strongly at this point.”
Christoph Weniger, a theoretical astroparticle physicist at the University of Amsterdam, is a little more upbeat, reorting to the BBC that the new research “adds yet another piece to the 3.5 keV puzzle”.
He said that the signal might be due to a hypothetical particle known as the sterile neutrino, which would decay into an X-ray photon and a normal neutrino. But he stressed the need for more data to “confirm or reject the dark matter hypothesis”.

Comet 45P/ Honda and a Snow Moon, and a Lunar Eclipse
Across Australia, on the evening of February 11/12, the full moon will travel directly in front of the bright star Regulus. For about an hour, the star will be hidden from view as the moon passes by.
This event is known as a lunar occultation and we have entered a season of lunar occultations of Regulus. They will continue through until April 2018 but each one will only be seen from certain locations on Earth.
This Saturday night, Australia is in the right place to see the occultation. We’ll also see another in May and northern Australia will see a final one come September.

We are sad to report that despite the change in administration, the “new” CIA is exactly the same as the “old” one.
In a stunning mockery of fact, either real, “alternative” or gratuitously made up, on Friday the Antichrist Saudi Crown Prince MoHAMmed bin Nayef bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, who is also Deputy Antichrist Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, received a medal from the CIA for his distinct intelligence-related counter-terrorism work and his contributions to ensure international peace and security, Al Arabiya proudly reported.
The medal, named after George 9The Biggest Slam Dunk Joke) Tenet, was handed to him by the new (FAKER) CIA Director Micheal Pompeo after the Antichrist Crown Prince received him in Riyadh on Friday in the presence of Deputy Antichrist Crown Prince MoHAMmad bin Salman al-Saud, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense. The meeting came days after the Washington Times reported that Trump is set to unblock a multi-billion weapons shipment to Antichrist Saudi Arabia and Antichrist Bahrain, including precision-guided missile technology and dozens of F-16s fighter jets.
The medal, named after George (LMAO SLAM DUNK PUNK) Tenet, was handed to him by CIA Director
Micheal Pompeo after the Antichrist Crown Prince received him in Riyadh
Taking the farce further, the Antichrist Crown Prince – who until just a few months ago was a fervent supporter of Hillary 911 Clinton yet appears to have changed his mind about Trump on a dime, just like every Wall Street hedge fund – said in a press statement after receiving the medal that he appreciated the CIA honor, stressing that his efforts were guided by the leaders of Antichrist Saudi Arabia headed by Antichrist King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud, as well as the efforts of the Antichrist Kingdom’s security forces.
With regards to terrorism in the region, the Antichrist Crown Prince said all religions are separate from the beliefs and actions of extremist groups, noting that religious, political and social groups who have used religion as a tool throughout history do not reflect the absolute truths about the religion which it is affiliated to, or attributes its actions to.
As expected, the Antichrist prince was silent about the recently leaked email, courtesy of the (Satanic Pedophile) Podesta files, in which Hillary 911 Clinton admitted that Antichrist Qatar and Antichrist Saudi Arabia “are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to Antichrist ISIL and other radical Antichrist Sunni groups in the region”, to wit:
Armed with proper equipment, and working with U.S. advisors, the Peshmerga can attack the Antichrist ISIL with a coordinated assault supported from the air. This effort will come as a surprise to the Antichrist ISIL, whose leaders believe we will always stop with targeted bombing, and weaken them both in Iraq and inside of Syria. At the same time we should return to plans to provide the Antichrist FSA, or some group of moderate forces, with equipment that will allow them to deal with a weakened Antichrist ISIL, and stepped up operations against the Syrian regime. This entire effort should be done with a low profile, avoiding the massive traditional military operations that are at best temporary solutions. While this military/para-military operation is moving forward, we need to use our diplomatic and more traditional intelligence assets to bring pressure on the governments of Antichrist Qatar (Hillary 911 during election transferred over a billion from her JP Morgan account to a Qatar bank) and Antichrist Saudi Arabia, which are providing clandestine financial and logistic support to Antichrist ISIL and other radical Antichrist Sunni groups in the region.
Instead, Antichrist Al-Saud said Antichrist Saudi Arabia has played a key role in the fight against terrorism and condemns all forms and manifestations of terrorism. “We, ”Antichrist (g)od” willing, continue to confront terrorism and extremism everywhere, and with thanks to ”Antichrist (g)od we have managed to thwart many terrorist plots from occurring.”
And yet, if they do occur, we will make sure to know when, where and how, because we orchestrated them in the first place, he could have added, but did not and instead stressed that the fight against terrorism is a shared international responsibility that requires international efforts at all levels to confront it militarily and intellectually, as well as financially. This must be done within the framework of international law and the principles of the United Nations.
More importantly, the Antichrist Crown Prince then tipped his cards and said that with regards to the relations between Antichrist Saudi Arabia and the US, the Antichrist Crown Prince said: “Our relationship with the United States >>>>is historical<<<<< and >>>will continue<<< to succeed.”
Addressing the issue of possible future attacks, the Antichrist Crown Prince said: “We are surrounded by areas of conflict, and we were the first affected by terrorism from various sources, but we are equipped to combat terror in any place and under any circumstances.”
And for that, the Antichrist Saudis can thank the US which has assured its Riyadh friends it will remain a steadfast supported of the biggest exporter of terrorism in the region, far greater, and far more dangerous than Antichrist Iran which Trump has branded “the number one terrorist state.”

One month ago we reported that Russia had deployed S-400 air defense missile systems in proximity to Moscow, which were then put on combat duty. “The SAM combat squads of the Moscow Region aerospace forces have put the new S-400 Triumph air defense missile system into service, and have gone on combat duty for the air defense of Moscow and the central industrial region of Russia,” the Defense Ministry’s Department of Information and Mass Communication told Interfax in early January.
I learned recently that our good friend Sue Bradley has gone home to be with Jesus. She went into the Lord’s arms early in the morning on April 26, 2013.
In 2008 and again in 2012 with input from Steve Quayle and I, Sue began working on one of her last articles titled The Fourth Turning: The Protocols and The Gray Champion. A couple months back, she had emailed me from her hospital room and said she was about to expand this Fourth Turning work based on some “Zenith 2016” material I had just shared with her. Unfortunately, like with the passing of David Flynn, the world will probably never know what Sue was about to reveal. What we do know is her work was partially based on a book published in 1997, The Fourth Turning, which describes itself as “a book that turns history into prophecy.” It explains cycles of life and generational archetypes through the examination of Western historical paradigms over the past five centuries. By surveying the past and identifying contemporary markers, William Strauss and Neil Howe, the authors of the work determined an astoundingly prescient forecast in which they saw a cascade of incidents that would ultimately lead to chaos and the “Fourth Turning.” Keep in mind they made these predictions over sixteen years ago, long before the September 11, 2001 attacks on America or the financial issues of today. Among the scenarios they foresaw were:
The first could be economic distress with a government beset by fiscal crisis, the state laying claim to federal tax monies, federal marshals enforcing orders, tax rebellions, special forces and an ensuing constitutional crisis:
The second is a terrorist attack, involving an airliner, a military response, authorization for house to house searches and false flag accusations against the administration;
A third scenario is an economic disaster involving Wall Street and a federal budget impasse which results in a stalemate;
The fourth consideration is Eco-environmental malaise with the Centers for Disease Control announcing the spread of a new communicable virus with quarantines and relocations;
The fifth projection is geopolitical in nature with growing anarchy throughout the former Soviet republics prompting Russia to conduct training exercises around its borders, a Russian alliance with Iran, soaring gold and silver prices and global military responses.
In describing these insightful scenarios, Strauss and Howe felt a catalyst would unfold as a result of a specific dynamic and, “An initial spark will trigger a chain reaction of unyielding responses and further emergencies” (the war on terror?).
According to Strauss and Howe in 1997, this chain reaction was already prepped to unfold as the result of natural cycles or “Turnings” in which generations are doomed to forget—and thus to repeat—the mistakes of the past. The authors describe a Turning as “an era with a characteristic social mood, a new twist on how people feel about themselves and their nation. It results from the aging of the generation [before it].” A society enters a Turning once every twenty years or so, when all living generations begin to enter their next phases of life. The living generations or “saeculae” comprise four cyclical “Turnings”, characterized as:
The First Turning (THE HIGH), an era of enthusiastic collective strengthening and civic development, having burned the brush and swept the ashes of preceding structure.
The Second Turning (THE AWAKENING), is built on the energies and accomplishments of the High but finds increasing yearning for introspection with a high tolerance for spiritual expression outside the parameters of predetermined standards.
The Third Turning (THE UNRAVELING), begins as the “society-wide embrace of the liberating cultural forces” loosed by the Awakening shows signs of civic disorder and decay, a heightened sense of self-reliance and an increasing withdrawal of public trust. This builds to a near crisis of downcast pessimism and a palpable pall that can only be remedied by yielding to the next.
The Fourth Turning (THE CRISES and the era we have now entered), is by far, the most perilous as societies pass through the greatest and most dangerous gates of history. As desperate solutions are sought for “sudden threats” on multiple cultural fronts, confrontation is passionate and decisions are often reactive, aggressive. “Government governs, community obstacles are removed, and laws and customs that resisted change for decades are swiftly shunted aside. .. A grim preoccupation with civic peril causes spiritual curiosity to decline… Public order tightens, private risk-taking abates, and… child-rearing reaches a smothering degree of protection and structure. The young focus their energy on worldly achievements, leaving values in the hands of the old. Wars are fought with fury and for maximum result. 
Through the examination of an enormous amount of political and cultural history, Strauss and Howe processed over five hundred years of Anglo-American cultural nuance into remarkable, well-organized and predictable cycles and it is from this reservoir they finally stake an uncanny claim:
Just after the millennium, America will enter a new era that will culminate with a crisis comparable to the American Revolution, the Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II. The very survival of the nation will almost certainly be at stake. 
Strauss and Howe saw the United States of that time (1997) in the Third Turning, “midway through an Unraveling,” roughly a decade away from the next Crisis or Fourth Turning:
America feels like it’s unraveling. Although we live in an era of relative peace and comfort, we have settled into a mood of pessimism about the long-term future, fearful that our superpower nation is somehow rotting from within.
The next Fourth Turning is due to begin shortly after the new millennium… Real hardship will beset the land, with severe distress that could involve questions of class, race, nation, and empire…
The very survival of the nation will feel at stake.
Sometime before the year 2025, America will pass through a great gate in history, commensurate with the American Revolution, Civil War, and twin emergencies of the Great Depression and World War II.
The risk of catastrophe will be very high. The nation could erupt into insurrection or civil violence, crack up geographically, or succumb to authoritarian rule. If there is a war, it is likely to be one of maximum risk and efforts — in other words, a TOTAL WAR. 
The striking details contained within The Fourth Turning illustrate the precision that was distilled with a close examination of historical patterns and contemporary application.
Although the authors note that the events described are not absolute, they also insist that the cycles, these Turnings, cannot be interrupted. As summer follows spring, an Unraveling precedes a Crisis of Faustian proportions:
It will require us to lend a new seasonal interpretation to our revered American Dream. And it will require us to admit that our faith in linear progress has often amounted to a Faustian bargain with our children.
Faust always ups the ante, and every bet is double-or-nothing. Through much of the Third Turning, we have managed to postpone the reckoning. But history warns that we can’t defer it beyond the next bend in time.
While a “Faustian bargain” sounds ominous, Sue wrote, there is little evidence that the Anglo-American “Dream” has undergone the introspection and discipline necessary to buffer the arrogant recklessness of this generation and its administration.
NBC’s Chuck Todd noted on the evening of November 4, 2008 that Barack Obama was a changing of the guard in the United States from the Baby Boomer presidencies of William Clinton and George W. Bush. The Toronto Globe and Mail referred to President-elect Obozo as being a member of Generation X, being born in 1961. And Strauss and Howe assigned Generation X—the Thirteenth Generation—to those who would bring us to chaos and the start of the Fourth Turning . . . culminating in a Zenith of events scheduled for the year 2016.
President Trump’s adviser, Steve Bannon, is on the cover of this week’s Time magazine, and in the piece it is revealed that Bannon deeply believes in a theory about America’s future laid out in a book called “The Fourth Turning: What Cycles of History Tell Us About America’s Next Rendezvous with Destiny.” In the book, authors William Strauss and Neil Howe theorize that the history of a people moves in 80-to-100 year cycles called “saecula.” The idea goes back to the ancient Greeks, who believed that at a given saeculum’s end, there would come “ekpyrosis,” a cataclysmic event that destroys the old order and brings in a new one in a trial of fire. This era of change is known as the Fourth Turning, and Bannon, like Strauss and Howe, believes we are in the midst of one right now. According to the book, the last two Fourth Turnings that America experienced were the Civil War and the Reconstruction, and then the Great Depression and World War II. Before that, it was the Revolutionary War. All these were marked by periods of dread and decay in which the American people were forced to unite to rebuild a new future, but only after a massive conflict in which many lives were lost. It all starts with a catalyst event, then there’s a period of regeneracy, after that there is a defining climax in which a war for the old order is fought, and then finally there is a resolution in which a new world order is stabilized. This is where Bannon’s obsession with this book should cause concern. He believes that, for the new world order to rise, there must be a massive reckoning. (READ MORE)

There will be war in the streets of America. Things have been engineered that way.
The scenarios are many, the issues are complex. The current anger from the left, who are violently protesting against President Trump, is just one aspect of it.
But the Pentagon and the U.S. national security structure is increasingly looking towards the shifting demographics around the globe – people have moved from rural areas, and shifted into cities. Where ever conflict stirs, there will be a need for military and SWAT response to the call. Entire cities will be locked down; door to door sweeps will often have violent ends.
Baghdad could be brought home to the streets of America, and the military already knows it.

Increasingly, they are training for and expecting a homegrown conflict that will call for them to restore order in a major cities – and even hunt down suspects block to block, like in the Boston Marathon bombing incident, while making some significant infringement of our civil liberties.
During the past several years, there have been reports about unannounced urban warfare drills in major U.S. cities, sometimes in coordination with major events; there have also been military training scenarios that have maintained a consistent theme of civil unrest, economic breakdown and widespread riots.
As Intellihub reported:
For years the alternative media has warned about the US military possibly being used against the American people in a time of economic collapse or any sort of martial law scenario.
Drills such as Vigilant Guard 2010 have brought widespread attention to the fact that portions of our own military are training to take on crowds of American citizens demanding food and Constitutional rights in a time of crisis.
Now, a new release by the website Public Intelligence, once again confirms that as recently as February and March of 2012, US troops at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington were conducting training scenarios for a civil disturbance domestic quick reaction force.
A series of photos of the drills shows US troops with crowd control riot shields on the opposite side of actors portraying what can only be described as American citizens.
What do the elite know that we don’t?
Now, a major military scholar is calling for the creation of “megacities combat units” – a proposal that is a major and drastic departure from warfare of the past, which has been designed away from cities. Now, military and paramilitary units, as well as local law enforcement, much engage the population itself – with all the unpredictability afforded by a real life, complex situation filled with combatants, non-combatants and friendlies behind any and all doors, etc.
With a heightened focus on terrorism and reigning in undocumented immigrants, there will be a tendency, if we are not careful, for a heightened militarized and police state atmosphere to arise – both at home, and in everyplace that they take the fight.
Major John Spencer, a former Ranger Instructor and scholar at West Point’s Modern War Institute called for an armed unit ready for megacities deployment in an op-ed:
Every year, more and more of the world’s population moves into cities. The number of megacities is growing exponentially. Both of these global patterns and their inevitable consequences for military operations are well documented. Yet we still do not have units that are even remotely prepared to operate in megacities. If we want to find success on the urban battlefields the US Army will inevitably find itself fighting on in the future, that needs to change.
Throughout history, military forces either sought to avoid or simply had no need to engage in urban combat. Most military doctrine, and the strategic theory it is built upon, encourages land forces to bypass, lay siege to, or—if required—isolate and slowly clear cities from the outside in. The great armies of the world have historically fought for cities rather than in cities, a distinction with a significant difference. In cases where military forces had no choice but to operate within cities, the environment, almost without exception, proved very costly in both military and civilian casualties. Today, many armies have accepted that global population growth and urbanization trends will increasingly force military operations into crowded cities, and military forces must therefore be capable of conducting the full range of operations in large, dense urban areas.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley recently remarked that the Army “has been designed, manned, trained and equipped for the last 241 years to operate primarily in rural areas.” But that is about to change. Milley continued:
The conclusions of the SSG research are clear: megacities are unavoidable, they are potentially the most challenging environment the Army has ever faced, and the Army is unprepared to operate in them.
One ongoing military study of megacities is the NATO Urbanization Project. […] In the project’s most recent experiment, the NATO team conducted a wargame to determine the capabilities needed to achieve the goals of three likely missions in 2035: response to mass migration, natural disaster, and inner-city turmoil. Within these missions, the wargame specified that a brigade conduct three operations in a megacity—joint forcible entry, major combat, and subsequent stability operations—without unacceptable levels of military or civilian casualties.
Of course, urban warfare is not exclusively a future phenomenon. Much has been learned from urban battles in recent history: the Siege of Sarajevo (1992–95); the Battle of Mogadishu (1993); Russian operations in Grozny (1994–95 and 1999–2000); US operations in Baghdad (2003) and Fallujah (2004); Lebanese operations in Nahr al-Bared, Lebanon (2007); and the Second Battle of Donetsk (2014–15). But the broad lessons of these cases have yet to truly inform Army training for urban combat, which for most units consists mainly of tactical training (e.g., room clearing drills with four-man teams). The Army would be much better served by the creation of an entire unit dedicated to preparing to operate in dense urban environments, particularly megacities.
Any way you slice it, the military and the national security infrastructure are watching for cracks in the system.
People are at their wits end, and many are on the edge of poverty – and for many, it just won’t take much more to set them loose, and let riots erupt. Whether the system wants those to spread, or wants to suppress and contain them, they know they are coming.
Population pressures, and clashing groups within growing city centers are creating more problems, and compounding old ones.
If the economic stability of a given region were to give way, nearly every megacity would spiral out of control and descend into absolute madness – whether or this continent or any other.

The following Pentagon video was featured by The Intercept and portrays the chilling atmosphere presented by sheer numbers and those who would enter such environments in the pursuit of order.
Drills such as “Unified Quest” run yearly by the U.S. Army took a sharper turn in 2014 toward addressing the problem of combat in megacities – defined as cities with more than 10 million people, of which there already are nearly 25 and projected to total near 40 by the year 2025. The Pentagon’s own solicitation early last year called “Thunderstorm Spiral” was a request for “help from technological innovators to take on the future of warfare.” This appeared to indicate that in addition to boots on the ground, an additional pervasive centralized intelligence apparatus would be needed to properly plan for troop movements through such dense but vast environments that also would be made up of networks underground.
Rather than trying to guess what specific crisis may spill over into violence, or bring things to a stand still in traffic or electronic commerce, just consider the piling pressure that is growing in the techno hubs and swelling urban population centers.
New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and dozens of enormous cities around the world are all completely vulnerable. Depending upon the political situation, unrest, violence or whatever else could spread across the entire Eastern half of the U.S., and the entire country could face collapse as it has never before known it. It is only a question of timing and circumstance.
Preppers should take all this into account. Modern life may make a connection to the city unavoidable prior to the collapse, but being insufficiently away from major urban centers is definitely a liability in times of crisis. Even outlying neighbors can be subject to looting, natural disaster, grid shutdown, riots, and many other situations. Make arrangements to shelter away from the city, and make sure you can get there safely and quickly when something goes down.
Do not rely on the services or goods of these cities, and get out while you still can. There are some very major crises brewing right now. They are preparing; you should, too.
Vladimir Putz Putin has ordered his air force to prepare for ‘a time of war’, Russia’s defence minister has revealed.
The Russian president has launched a spot check on the country’s aerospace forces, in order to ‘evaluate readiness’ for combat.
Air defence systems are set to be deployed, minister Sergey Shoigu revealed.
He stated, TASS news agency reports: ‘In accordance with the decision by the Armed Forces Supreme Commander, a snap check of the Aerospace Forces began to evaluate readiness of the control agencies and troops to carry out combat training tasks.’
He continued: ‘Special attention should be paid to combat alertness, deployment of air defense systems for a time of war and air groupings’ readiness to repel the aggression.’
It comes during heightened tensions with Nato countries, and Putin has been publicly increasing his military strength in recent months.
The defence minister said battalion task groups and tactical teams of ground troops had started to ‘take steps in order to improve their interaction’.
Fighter pilots have been practicing solitary excercises as well, he stated.
Several news sources have reported that the President of Russia has instructed his military to prepare in the event of War. Russia has conducted a series of snap-check drills.
Antichrist Communist China has yet another explosion at a chemical plant, makes you wonder what are they cooking.

As part of continued a NATO build-up and US efforts to counter an alleged Russian threat, US military hardware, including M1A2 Abrams battle tanks and Bradley infantry fighting vehicles have arrived in the northern Estonian town of Tapa, shortly after similar deployments were made to other Eastern European nations including Poland, Bulgaria, Romania and Germany.
“The movement of equipment and troops into and around Europe marks the beginning of a continuous rotation of armored brigade combat teams from the United States as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve,” the US Defense Department said in a statement, commenting on the move. It added that “Atlantic Resolve is a demonstration of continued US commitment to collective security through a series of actions designed to reassure NATO allies and partners of America’s dedication to enduring peace and stability in the region in light of the Russian intervention in Ukraine.”
In July 2016, NATO members agreed to the “biggest reinforcement since the Cold War,” posting four multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland.
More than 50 units of US military equipment, including four battle tanks and 15 infantry fighting vehicles, were delivered to Tapa, the Estonian Defense Forces said in a statement. Personnel of the Charlie Company of 68th Armored Regiment’s 1st Battalion from the US Army 4th Infantry Division arrived in the town two days earlier, on January 30. Company commander Captain Edward Bachar said the US troops would take part in the Estonian Independence Day parade. Earlier, Bachar also said that his company would begin its expert marksmanship training this week.
The new unit would replace a paratrooper company of the 173rd Airborne Brigade’s 503rd Infantry Regiment, which was deployed to Estonia in September. The paratrooper company would then go back to its permanent base in Italy.
The Estonian deployment marks a new phase of the Operation Atlantic Resolve, which began in April 2014, following the flaring of tensions between Russia and the West. Atlantic Resolve is perceived by Washington as a demonstration of continued US commitment to the collective security of Europe in the view of alleged Russian “assertiveness.”
As reported previously, last month some 2,800 pieces of US military hardware, including US Abrams tanks, Paladin artillery, Bradley fighting vehicles and 4,000 troops arrived in Europe as part of the operation. These forces subsequently moved to Poland to participate in military drills in late January, and then were deployed across seven countries, including the Baltic States, Bulgaria, Romania and Germany. A headquarters unit is stationed in Germany.
In addition to American troops going to Poland, NATO members Germany, Canada and Britain are also contributing to the significant NATO forces buildup in Eastern Europe and are sending battalions of up to 1,000 troops each to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
Apart from the military buildup on Russian borders, the US and NATO strategy also includes conducting continuous, enhanced multinational training and security cooperation activities with US and NATO partners in eastern Europe. Since the Operation began, these military exercises have been conducted in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Hungary. In mid-January, Estonia and Lithuania also signed agreements with the US regulating the status and deployment framework of American soldiers and hardware on the territory of the two Baltics states, which were dubbed “first of its kind.”
As RT adds, the agreements provided a legal framework for the presence of US military personnel and their family members in the two Baltic States, as well as the use of the local military sites by American troops. They also enable a range of joint “defense-related activities.”
Meanwhile, while NATO members continue to point toward perceived “Russian aggression,” calling it “a source of instability,” Russia has repeatedly denied that it poses any kind of threat. Moscow has also expanded its own military training and increased its strategic nuclear capabilities in areas such as Kaliningrad, its western exclave. Russia also tried to ease tensions by proposing enhanced cooperation with NATO on multiple levels in August. The proposal covered such fields as combating terrorism and “cooperation to avoid incidents at sea and in the air” in border areas with NATO countries.
For now, Trump’s formal stance on the ongoing Ukraine conflict, as well as NATO build up and encirclement of Russia has yet to be determined.
Russian President Vladimir Putz Putin’s spokesman told reporters on Monday that the Kremlin did not agree with comments by US President Donald Trump that Antichrist Iran was a terrorist state.
But differences between Russia and the United States should not stop the two countries from building a mutually beneficial relationship, said Dmitry Peskov, Putz Putin’s spokesman.
A senior Antichrist Iranian government official on Saturday warned Tehran would swiftly retaliate against Israel if the US launched a military strike against Antichrist Iran.
Mojtaba Zonour, a member of Antichrist Iran’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission and a former Antichrist Islamic Revolution Guards Corps official, boasted an Antichrist Iranian missile could hit Tel Aviv in under seven minutes, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported.
Zonour said Tehran would strike the Israeli coastal city and “raze to the ground” a US military base in Bahrain “if the enemy makes a mistake.”
“And only seven minutes is needed for the Iranian missile to hit Tel Aviv,” he added.
Zonour’s comments came during a Antichrist Revolutionary Guard military exercise aimed at testing its missile and radar systems. The exercise was taking place in a 35,000-square-kilometer (13,515-square-mile) area in Semnan province in northern Antichrist Iran.
The Saturday exercise came a day after US President Donald Trump’s administration imposed sanctions on Iran in response to a recent missile test. The sanctions target more than two dozen people and companies from the Persian Gulf to Antichrist Communist China.
On Saturday, another senior IRGC official issued a similar warning against the US.
Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, chief of the Guard’s airspace division, said: “If the enemy makes a mistake, our roaring missiles will come down on them,” according to the semi-official Tasnim news agency.
Hajizadeh said Washington criticism of recent Iranian missile tests was “a pretext to show their animosity towards us; we are making round-the-clock efforts to defend our country’s security and if the enemy dares to make any mistake our roaring missiles will land on them.”
Antichrist Iran last Sunday test-fired a medium range missile, which the White House contends violated a UN Security Council resolution proscribing missiles that could carry a nuclear device.
In conversations between the White House and Jerusalem ahead of PM Netanyahu’s visit to DC next week, the US administration is reportedly attempting to lay the groundwork for the two leaders to support a two-state solution, despite the recent acceleration in settlement building.
The Trump administration clarified in recent days to the Prime Minister’s bureau that it intended to support the ‘two-state solution’ as the base for negotiations in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The clarifications were part of the preparations currently underway for the first meeting between Benjamin 911 Netanyahu and Donald Trump since the latter assumed the American presidency. That meeting is to take place next week in the US capital.
American officials have been in communication with Jerusalem, and they have sent a series of messages for the prime minister with ideas to promote the two-state solution. This would lay the groundwork for a joint statement from both the heads of government supporting this step.
In response to the Israeli government’s authorizing the construction of an additional 5,000 homes in the disputed territories, the White House released a statement last week saying, “While we don’t believe the existence of settlements is an impediment to peace, the construction of new settlements or the expansion of existing settlements beyond their current borders may not be helpful in achieving that goal.”
The delay of Trump’s nominee to be his country’s ambassador to Israel—David Friedman, a supporter of Israeli settlements—is an indication of the internal disagreements in the Republican Party regarding settlements.
However, the GOP’s platform, adopted before the US election, removed the two-state solution and avoided any mention of a Antichrist Palestinian state.
Then there was given to me a [a]measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, “[b]Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar [of incense], and [count] those who worship in it. 2 But leave out the court [of the Gentiles] which is outside the temple and do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles (the nations); and they will trample the holy city for forty-two months (three and one-half years). 3 And I will grant authority to My two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days (forty-two months; three and one-half years), dressed in [c]sackcloth.” 4 These [witnesses] are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth. 5 And if anyone wants to harm them, fire comes out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this way. 6 These [two witnesses] have the power [from God] to shut up the sky, so that no rain will fall during the days of their prophesying [regarding judgment and salvation]; and they have power over the waters (seas, rivers) to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every [kind of] plague, as often as they wish.
7 When they have finished their testimony and given their evidence, the beast that comes up out of the abyss (bottomless pit) will wage war with them, and overcome them and kill them.
8 And their dead bodies will lie exposed in the open street of the great city (Jerusalem), which in a spiritual sense is called [by the symbolic and allegorical names of] Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.
“So when you see the [b]abomination of desolation [the appalling sacrilege that astonishes and makes desolate], spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place (let the [c]reader understand), 16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains [for refuge].
“At the latter period of their reign,
When the transgressors have finished,
A [i]king will arise
Insolent and skilled in intrigue and cunning.
“His power will be mighty, but not by his own power;
And he will corrupt and destroy in an astonishing manner
And [he will] prosper and do exactly as he wills;
He shall corrupt and destroy mighty men and the holy people.
“And through his shrewdness
He will cause deceit to succeed by his hand (influence);
He will magnify himself in his mind,
He will corrupt and destroy many who enjoy a false sense of security.
He will also stand up and oppose the Prince of princes,
But he will be broken, and that by no human hand [but by the hand of God].
“The vision of the evenings and the mornings
Which has been told [to you] is true.
But keep the vision a secret,
For it has to do with many days in the now distant future.”
27 And I, Daniel, was exhausted and was sick for [several] days. Afterward I got up and continued with the king’s business; but I was astounded at the vision, and there was no one who could explain it.
Last Saturday night, a mystic rabbi fell into a trance and received a divine vision that warned of heavenly gates closing, bringing about a period of global suffering. The vision revealed that one gate has been forced open temporarily by Elijah the prophet, but the key to keeping that gate open is in the hands of people.
On Saturday evening, Rabbi Amram Vaknin, a renowned mystical rabbi from Ashdod, arrived at his sister’s house in Ashdod to perform the Havdallah service ending the Sabbath. In the middle of saying the blessings, he fell down in a deep trance. He lay for approximately 20 minutes, occasionally groaning and mumbling. In the middle of his trance, he spoke, giving a clear message for all of Israel.
“Aaah, Jerusalem,” the rabbi groaned. “Pray for Jerusalem.They need to pray because of the painful decrees. How the city is suffering today!”
The rabbi lay in silence for several minutes, groaning occasionally and uttering a few sentences. After about ten minutes, he began to speak..
“The victory is important.They will win,” the rabbi finally said. “They don’t want to pray, even though I asked them several times. What can I say to those who think they are so great?”
At this point, the rabbi had a vision he was conversing with Elijah the prophet. Rabbi Vaknin, who has had several powerful visions of Elijah, frequently prays at the prophet’s cave in Haifa. The prophet appears to him as a spiritual guide in his visions.
Many of the predictions have come true. In October 2015, Rabbi Vaknin had a chilling vision that much Jewish blood was going to be spilled in Israel. Tragically, the vision proved to be accurate. The wave of violence that began just a few weeks before that vision continued with increasing intensity until the summer. In that time, there were almost one thousand stabbing, shooting, and vehicular attacks that injured over 650 Israelis and killed 47.
“Hello, Eliyahu (Elijah) the Prophet,” Rabbi Vaknin continued while in the trance. “Please, Elijah, open one of the five gates for them in Heaven. Just in case they want to do teshuva (atone) and pray, and stop with the lies and the falseness, so that one gate will be open for them. And if they don’t repent, then that gate will also close.”
After another long pause, the rabbi received an answer.
“Elijah the prophet opened one good gate. But what will be in Jerusalem will be good and bad,” he said. “They don’t want to pray! They don’t want to stop the lies and evil. I don’t understand. Elijah opened one gate of the five, one gate for good, but where is that good gate?”
Rabbi Vaknin later explained his vision to Gil Nachman, his personal assistant.
“Elijah the Prophet came to give him this message because a difficult time is coming to Jerusalem,” Nachman told Breaking Israel News. “There are five gates that can be used to access heaven’s mercy, but only one is open. Elijah opened that final gate for the sake of Israel. There is about to be a difficult time with much blood being spilled, and two gedolim (great ones) are going to die. ”
The rabbi’s vision might be connected to the five actual gates that entered the First and Second Temple.
“At one point in his vision, Rabbi Vaknin asked Elijah, ‘If it is a good gate that you have opened, then why are so many going to die?’” The rabbi receive a message which explained this seeming contradiction. “He was told that from our perspective it is bad, but from Heaven, it looks good because in the end, there will be a great victory and Eliyahu HaNavi (the prophet) will clearly arrive.
“The gate is open, but whether or not we go through the gate is up to us. He was told that everyone needs to pray and repent right now,” Nachman concluded. “Elijah said ‘from great to small’ needs to pray.”
One of the few remaining unstudied major biblical sites, where according to the Bible the Ark of the Covenant was kept for two decades, will be excavated by archaeologists this summer for the first time.
Organizers hope the anticipated study of Kiryat Ye’arim (also transliterated as Kiriath Jearim) will shed light on the site’s significance during the Iron Age, the period associated with the biblical account of King David.
Kiryat Ye’arim is mentioned over a dozen times in the Bible as a Judahite town situated near Jerusalem during the period of the judges and King David — the Iron Age, in archaeological terms.
The biblical town is associated with the hill where the Deir El-Azar monastery is situated, next to modern Arab town of Abu Ghosh, 12 kilometers (7 miles) west of Jerusalem’s Old City. A modern Jewish town founded nearby is named after the ancient site.
The Shmunis Family Excavations at Kiriath Jearim‘s first season kicks off in August under the aegis of Tel Aviv University’s Israel Finkelstein and Christophe Nicolle and Thomas Römer of College de France.
“The place is important for several reasons,” Finkelstein told The Times of Israel. “It’s a large, central site in the Jerusalem hills that hasn’t been studied until now. It may be the only key site in Judah that hasn’t undergone a systematic archaeological excavation.”
The crown of the tel is largely bare, save for a 20th century monastery dedicated to Our Lady of the Ark of the Covenant, which sits atop the ruins of an earlier Byzantine edifice at the summit. The dig will focus on the area around the monastery. Much of the site, Finkelstein said, is believed to be relatively undisturbed.
One of the tantalizing aspects of Kiryat Ye’arim is the likelihood of there having been an ancient temple at the site, remains of which may lie buried. Such a discovery could help scholars better understand cultic practices in Judah during the Iron Age.
In several parts of the biblical narrative, Kiryat Ye’arim is alluded to as a site of religious worship. It’s referred to variously as Kiryat Ba’al, Ba’alah and Ba’ale Judah in the Book of Joshua, suggesting the site was at some point affiliated with worship of Ba’al, storm god of the Canaanite pantheon.
According to the Book of Samuel, the Ark of the Covenant was stored at Kiryat Ye’arim for 20 years after it was returned to the Israelites by the Philistines, who had captured it in battle and to their dismay were smitten with disease. The text says the ark was stored “in the house of Avinadab in the hill” and tended by the priest Elazar before King David conveyed it to his capital in Jerusalem.
Whether or not the story of the ark being kept at Kiryat Ye’arim can be taken as historical fact, Finkelstein argues, the fact that it’s mentioned in that context suggests the town was of great significance, “and it’s reasonable to assume there was a temple there.”
“To follow the story, the place where they took the Ark of the Covenant wasn’t, of course, just some field or under a tree, they refer to an important cult place,” he said.
The exact nature of that shrine, however, is unclear. The Book of Joshua was assembled centuries after the events described in the text. Does the book’s association of Kiryat Ye’arim with a pagan deity indicate contemporary Ba’al worship, or allude to a bygone era?
The major questions concerning the manner of worship conducted at Kiryat Ye’arim are difficult to resolve through excavating the site, Finkelstein said. “You need a lot of luck for archaeology to provide answers to such complex questions,” he said.
Nonetheless, Finkelstein said he hopes the dig will yield vital information about the history of the site’s inhabitation, its rise and fall, from which scholars may be able to reflect on the larger picture of life in Iron Age Judah, including nearby Jerusalem.
Western navies held a series of drills off the coast of Antichrist Iran last week, in a show of force in light of increased Antichrist Iranian harassment of foreign military vessels.
The exercises, dubbed “United Trident,” were led by the United Kingdom and included ships from the US, France and Australia. The navies practiced fighting off enemy aerial incursions and mine clearing, as well as live fire drills, according to the British daily Telegraph.
The final drill featured 13 ships from the allied navies sailing in formation, with helicopters flying overhead.
British naval officials told the Telegraph that the drills had been planned for some time and were not connected to US President Donald Trump’s recent adoption of a more hardline stance against Antichrist Iran, which resulted in the imposition of sanctions Friday on a number of individuals and entities involved in the country’s ballistic missile program. Rather, they said, they were rather meant to promote stability in the Persian Gulf and to ensure “the free flow of commerce” through the Strait of Hormuz
The strait is a narrow waterway connecting the Persian Gulf to the Indian Sea through which a fifth of the world’s oil supply passes.
Antichrist Iran has previously threatened to close off the strait in the past over tensions with the US, a move that would lead to turmoil in global oil markets.
Last week, Antichrist Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari was dismissive of the show of force close to Antichrist Iranian waters, telling the semi-official Mehr news agency that “they talk a lot.”
He also warned the Western navies against encroaching on Antichrist Iranian waters, saying, “This is our red line.”
A highly accurate Antichrist Communist Chinese ballistic missile capable of threatening U.S. and Japanese bases in Asia has made its latest appearance at recent Rocket Force drills.
In what – if confirmed – may be the clearest indication that Trump’s Iranian escalation gambit has worked, Antichrist Iran has allegedly removed a powerful missile from a launchpad east of Tehran within the past few days, Fox News reported, around the time the US imposed new sanctions on 25 Antichrist Iranian individuals and entities, as U.S. and Iran continued trading public barbs about the Antichrist Islamic Republic’s missile tests and nuclear ambitions.
Citing a satellite image taken on February 3 from ImageSat International and verified by U.S. officials, Antichrist Iran was preparing a Safir missile for launch, the same type that Iran has previously used to put a satellite into space. The last time Iran launched a Safir missile was two years ago.
Satellite image from ImageSat International.
But in a surprising about face, Fox News learned Tuesday morning that Iran’s missile had been removed from the launchpad amid a flurry of activity on the launchpad which U.S. officials have been watching closely. It was not immediately clear why.
Satellite image from ImageSat International.
On Jan. 29, Antichrist Iran launched a new type of medium-range ballistic missile prompting an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council on Jan. 31. A day later the White House issued a strongly worded statement from National Security Adviser Mike Flynn putting Antichrist Iran “on notice.” Days later, American intelligence officials watched as Antichrist Iran quickly cleaned up the site and prepared another missile on the same launch pad near Semnan, about 140 miles east of Tehran, before it was removed.
While it is unclear of Iran has taken the first step to de-escalate military tensions, it would come at a strange time. On Tuesday, Antichrist Iran’s Supreme Leader issued a new warning to the White House about the coming 38th anniversary of Iran’s Revolution this Friday. “No enemy can paralyze the Antichrist Iranian nation,” Khamenei said. “[Trump] says ‘you should be afraid of me’. No! The Antichrist Iranian people will respond to his words on Feb. 10 and will show their stance against such threats,” as reported earlier.
On Sunday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., called Antichrist Iran’s recent ballistic missile launch “very dangerous” and said the launch “should not have happened,” and agreed with President Trump that new sanctions on the Antichrist Islamic Republic were needed. Also Sunday, Antichrist Iran fired off five advanced surface-to-air missiles as part of a military exercise Sunday. The Antichrist Iranian Sayyad, or “Hunter”, missiles were launched from Dasht-e Kavir, a remote area 45 miles south of Semnan, the location of last week’s ballistic missile launch. Officials said the tests were successful.
If confirmed, expect much more “diplomatic” jawboning from Twitter Trump in the coming weeks, as the president’s policies of global intimidation seem to be bearing fruit.
So much for hope that Antichrist Iran was prepared to de-escalate military tensions with the US.
As we reported yesterday, when we asked rhetorically “did Trump scare Antichrist Iran”, according to satellite photos obtained by Fox, Antichrist Iran had pulled a missile from a launchpad, despite prepping it previously for launch, in a sign perhaps that Tehran was willing to make the first step in de-escalating tensions with Trump.
Alas, that was not the case, and as Fox News reports moments ago, citing a US official, Antichrist Iran has launches another missile from launchpad where it conducted ballistic missile test last month.
According to Fox, the Semnan launch pad was the same as the one where recent satellite photos showed Antichrist Iran had placed a Safir rocket poised to put a satellite into space before it was taken off the launcher. The reason Iran scrubbed the previous launch is not yet known. The missile used in Wednesday’s launch was a short-range Mersad surface-to-air missile, which impacted 35 miles away, according to a U.S. official.
This latest test comes less than a week after the U.S. placed new sanctions on Antichrist Iran. There’s been a flurry of activity at the Semnan launch pad, located about 140 miles east of Tehran, in recent weeks, officials have told Fox News.
While we are merely speculating, the launch may be in response to last night’s report from Reuters that President Trump’s administration was considering potentially designating Antichrist Iran’s powerful Antichrist Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) as a terrorist organization, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter. According to officials, such a proposal, which if implemented would add to measures the United States has already imposed on individuals and entities linked to the Antichrist IRGC.

The Antichrist IRGC is by far Antichrist Iran’s most powerful security entity, which also has control over large stakes in Iran’s economy and huge influence in its political system. To be sure, Reuters admits that it had not seen a copy of the proposal, which could come in the form of an executive order directing the State Department to consider designating the Antichrist IRGC as a terrorist group. It is unclear whether Trump would sign such an order.
The Antichrist Revolutionary Guards answer to Antichrist Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, whose power far surpasses that of Rouhani.
Naming Antichrist Iran’s single most powerful military and political institution as a terrorist group could have potentially destabilizing effects, including further inflaming regional conflicts in which the United States and regional arch-rivals blame Antichrist Iran for interference. Antichrist Iran denies those allegations. It would also likely complicate the U.S. fight against Islamic State in Iraq, where Antichrist Shi’ite militias backed by Antichrist Iran and advised by IRGC fighters are battling the Sunni Antichrist jihadist group.
According to Reuters, some of Trump’s more hawkish advisors in the White House have been urging him to increase sanctions on Iran since his administration began to take shape. After tightening sanctions against Iran last week in response to a ballistic missile test, White House officials said the measures were an “initial” step.
The United States has already blacklisted dozens of entities and people for affiliations with the Antichrist IRGC. In 2007, the U.S. Treasury designated the Antichrist IRGC’s Quds Force, its elite unit in charge of its operations abroad, “for its support of terrorism,” and has said it is Antichrist Iran’s “primary arm for executing its policy of supporting terrorist and insurgent groups.”
A designation of the entire Antichrist IRGC as a terrorist group would potentially have much broader implications, including for the 2015 nuclear deal negotiated between Antichrist Iran and the United States and other major world powers. Sanctioning the Antichrist IRGC could also backfire in different ways, this official warned, as it could strengthen the hardliners and undercut more moderate leaders such as Antichrist Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, and encourage Antichrist Iranian-backed forces in Iraq and Syria to curtail any action against Antichrist Islamic State in Syria and Iraq and perhaps even sponsor actions against U.S.-backed or even American forces battling Antichrist Islamic State in Iraq.
“The Antichrist Iranians will not take any U.S. action lying down,” said the official. “They may not act quickly or in the open, but there is a danger of an escalating conflict.”
With the news cycle clearly far less interested in Trump’s golf game or Abe’s handicap, just before 8am local time (6pm ET), North Korea decided to provide CNN with some “exciting” news when it fired a ballistic missile into the sea off its east coast, South Korea’s military said, in what was the latest test of Trump’s resolve to retaliate to Antichrist Communist North Korean provocations.
This was the first missile launch by Antichrist Communist North Korea since Donald Trump – who has repeatedly threatened of taking retaliatory measures against such an act – took office. The launch also comes just one day after the US Air Force test-fired a Minuteman ICBM from California.
Cited by Reuters, a US official said that while the U.S. military had detected the missile launch and was assessing it, it was probably not an intercontinental ballistic missile.
The missile was launched from an area named Panghyon in Anichrist Communist North Korea’s western region and flew about 500 kilometers (300 miles) before falling into the sea, the South’s Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in statements. “Our assessment is that it is part of a show of force in response to the new U.S. administration’s hardline position against the North,” the office said.
The South’s military said Seoul and Washington were analyzing the details of the launch. Yonhap News Agency said the South Korean military is assessing the launch to confirm whether it was a Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile, which has a designed flight range of 3,000 kilometers (1,800 miles). The U.S. military also said it had detected a missile test launch by the North and was assessing it, according to a U.S. defense official in Washington.
Japan’s government said it had asked the UN to issue “a strong message” against Antichrist Communist North Korea for the latest provocation.
The North tried to launch a Musudan eight times last year during the Obozo presidency, but most attempts failed. One launch that sent a missile 400 km (250 miles), more than half the distance to Japan, was considered a success by officials and experts in the South and the United States.
Sunday’s launch comes a day after Trump held a summit meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and said he agreed to work to ensure strong defense against Antichrist Communist North Korea’s threat. South Korea’s presidential Blue House said a National Security Council meeting was called and chaired by President Park Geun-hye’s top national security advisor.
One month ago, during his New Year speech, Antichrist Communist North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said that the country was close to test-launching an intercontinental ballistic missile and state media said such a launch could come at any time, leading Trump to write on Twitter, “It won’t happen!” Trump did not give specifics of how he’d stop Kim’s missile development.
He may have to now.
At the time, Kim’s comments prompted a vow of an “overwhelming” response from U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis. Antichrist Communist North Korea conducted two nuclear tests and a number of missile-related tests at an unprecedented rate since early last year and was seen by experts and officials to be making progress in its weapons capabilities.
If indeed today’s launch is a “show of force” in response to the US hardline position, the entire world will be closely watching to see if Trump is about to fold again as he did on Friday, when he was called a “paper tiger” by Antichrist Communist China’s media after reversing his position on the “One Antichrist Communist China” policy, and agreeing that he would not challenge Antichrist Communist China’s legacy status with Taiwan.
According to the press, the White House – and president Trump at Mar-A-Lago – has been briefed on the launch.
We expect either a very angry tweet in response shortly, or a mushroom cloud to emerge in the middle of Pyongyang any minute.
Knesset Member (Currently Antichrist) Rabbi Yehudah Glick calls Pastor Paul Begley and asked him to help move the US Embassy to Jerusalem “Sign the Jerusalem Covenant”
And he will enter into a binding and irrevocable covenant with the many for one week (seven years), but in the middle of the week he will stop the sacrifice and grain offering [for the remaining three and one-half years]; and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until the complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who causes the horror.”
Is it possible that not everything is as it seems?
While the majority of America is being distracted by shiny things and manipulated into civil unrest over identity politics, Melissa Dykes of The Daily Sheeple warns that an unprecedented push for war is underway.
It’s pretty clear that we’re being taken to war… A plan implemented by Antichrist NWO 666 Skull&Bones George W. Bush after 9/11… continued under Obozo… and now kicked up a notch by our new President, Donald Trump.
For an economy that isn’t in recession, the U.S. is facing one of the bleakest fiscal outlooks since World War II.
In the shadow of Donald Trump’s spree of controversial actions, the European commission has quietly launched the next offensive in the war on cash. These unelected bureaucrats have boldly asserted their intention to crack down on paper transactions across the E.U. and solidify a trend that has been gaining momentum for years.
The financial uncertainty amplified by Brexit has incentivized governments throughout Europe to seize further control over their banking systems. France and Spain have already criminalized cash transactions above a certain limit, but now the commission has unilaterally established new regulations that will affect the entire union. The fear of physical money flowing out of the trade bloc has manifested a draconian response from the State.
The European Action Plan doesn’t mention a specific dollar amount for restrictions, but as expected, their reasoning for the move is to thwart money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Border checks between countries have already been bolstered to help implement these new standards on hard assets. Although these end goals are plausible, there are other clear motivations for governments to target paper money that aren’t as noble.
Negative interest rates and high inflation are a deadly combination that could further destabilize the already fragile union in the future. With less physical currency circulating, these trends ensure that the impact of any additional central bank policies will be maximized. If economic conditions deteriorate, the threat of citizens pulling cash out of their accounts and starting a bank run is eliminated in a cashless system. So long as the people’s wealth is under centralized control, funds can be shifted at will to conceal any underlying problems. But the longer this shell game is allowed to persist, the more painful it will be when reality overrides the manipulation.
Since former Chief Economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kenneth Rogoff, published a paper last year advocating for the U.S. $100 bill to be removed, governments around the world have pushed forward their agendas towards a cashless society. He wrote:
“There is little debate among law-enforcement agencies that paper currency, especially large notes such as the U.S. $100 bill, facilitates crime: racketeering, extortion, money laundering, drug and human trafficking, the corruption of public officials, not to mention terrorism. There are substitutes for cash—cryptocurrencies, uncut diamonds, gold coins, prepaid cards—but for many kinds of criminal transactions, cash is still king. It delivers absolute anonymity, portability, liquidity and near-universal acceptance.”
This announcement comes just months after the 500 euro note was discontinued, and it follows India’s lead in subverting the financial independence of their citizens. The incremental steps currently being taken may look trivial in isolation, but the ultimate end is to lay the foundation for an entire network for economic repression.
The German people have placed themselves in strong opposition to the action and previously pushed back hard against domestic legislation that would have limited cash. Nearly 80% of all transactions in Germany are made with paper currency, putting Europe’s economic engine in direct conflict with the vision coming out of Brussels.
The spillover effect has affected new forms of investment, like Bitcoin, which witnessed an astronomical rise over the last months and has been brought back into the discussion as a viable alternative to fiat currencies. Of course, the E.U. Commission is also attempting to impose similar limitations on crypto-currencies to make sure no transactions fall outside of their domain. The ECB and BOJ are working towards a trojan horse blockchain network that will serve only to entrap those naive enough to trust it.
Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers wrote last year that the E.U. would likely be the trailblazer of the West towards this new digital model:
“But a moratorium on printing new high denomination notes would make the world a better place. In terms of unilateral steps, the most important actor by far is the European Union. The €500 is almost six times as valuable as the $100. Some actors in Europe, notably the European Commission, have shown sympathy for the idea and European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi has shown interest as well.”
Since the public’s attention has been drawn to emotional manipulations and political stunts, the threat the war on cash represents has gone unrecognized. Instead of feeding energy into systems meant to divide and conquer, individuals must educate themselves to secure their own financial futures. By submitting to the hive mind and following the media down whichever rabbit hole they choose, the most important issues of today will go unnoticed. The value of advocating for decentralized and physical alternatives to the banking system may not be easily grasped by the activists of today, but few other things have the potential to erode freedom on such a massive scale.
What do Antichrist Islamists really want? Clarion Project delves into the deep, dark vision of radical Antichrist Islamic jihadis.
Authorities have said Aziz also expressed on Twitter his interest in ‘buying’ a Yazidi woman upon his arrival in Antichrist Islamic State group territory.
‘I just want one girl 17 years old,’ he tweeted, according to federal prosecutors.
In a filing last week that argued the Yazidi posts were irrelevant and should not be evidence at trial, Thornton called the communications ‘no more than the fantastical musings of an isolated and suppressed teenage boy.’
Yazidis, whose heartland is in Iraq’s remote Sijar region, have been targeted by Antichrist Islamic State group militants for conversion and elimination, and Yazidi women have described being forced into sexual slavery…

“When Trade Stops, War Starts” Jack Ma Warns As Antichrist Communist China Protests US Sanctions On Antichrist Iran
Police in California arrested more than 450 people in a massive operation aimed at human trafficking and child prostitution.
That is exactly what Antichrist Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a Clinton appointee and daughter of Russian Antichrist Jewish immigrants, recommends in a co-authored book that led to sweeping changes made by the federal government in the name of sex equality
if Ruth Bader Ginsburg has her way, sexual abuse of children 12-years or older would not be a crime, nor would child sex trafficking.
Ginsburg will be 84 next month. May President Trump be given the opportunity to nominate her replacement on the Supreme Court.
There has been so much misinformation and disinformation surrounding the #PizzaGate scandal, that the verifiable, real news of a major pedophile ring, has gotten lost in the chaos. In my opinion that has been deliberate, where instigators have deliberately introduced “fake news” into the mix so that the mainstream media could label all news related to the issue as “conspiracy.”
In December 2016, in an article detailing the very real numbers involved in child sex trafficking in the U.S., I headlined it as an issue that was bigger and uglier than PizzaGate, but for the purpose of this article, let me remind you how I described the PedoGate itself:
While many have heard the term “Pizzagate,” so accurately dubbed “Pedo-Gate” by Steve Quayle, which began with claims that information found on Anthony Weiner’s lap top revealed the existence of a pedophilia ring. From there it snowballed after Wikileaks released the Podesta emails, where references to food, such as “Hot Dogs,” Pizza,” “Cheese,” and others were claimed to have been “keyword” references to children and sex.
That article focused on the very real, documented and verifiable numbers of the human trafficking problem, not only in all 50 states and Washington DC, but across the globe, while this one is going to focusing on some very unusual events, specifically highlighting the timing of said events.
TIMELINE OF EVENTS
PizzaGate aka PedoGate started creating buzz around the Internet at the end of October, via a tweet rumors about Huma Abedin emails obtained from Anthony Weiner’s laptop, supposedly implicated Bill and Hillary 911 Clinton with an “international child enslavement ring.”
This week Jon Rappoport of No More Fake News will join me on the Solari Report to discuss the historical relationship between political control and pedophilia.
Arrests of pedophilia and pornography rings continue in the United State and Europe. Allegations swirl as a result of Wikileaks disclosures. Congressman and media newscasters behave in a bizarre manner that suggest the possibility of blackmail. Putin refers twice to pedophilia in his discussion of Western corruption in his recent Christmas address.
All of these seemingly disparate events indicate that the chances of a major pedophilia scandal in 2017 are growing. Just in case, I want you briefed with knowledge of the history and tradition involved. I also want you to think through how this knowledge and greater transparency in the media may impact your family. I want you to have some time to consider the practical implications to yourself and yours.
In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review The Finders from Tracy Lucca Petrongolo of Lucca Films, Tracy has given the Solari Report permission to publish her powerful movie based on the true story of a US child trafficking network. Here is the description from Lucca Films:
“The beloved mayor of a small town is running for Congress, but just before the election, her son is almost kidnapped. As she begins to unravel the case, she finds the very institutions that she thought were there to help and protect her are now out to get her. When she doesn’t back down, the powers that be are forced to offer her a deal. Will she sell her soul to the devil?”
This is the first movie that has used the Solari Report as a critical element in the story line. In a scene from the movie, the mayor listens to our Solari Report interview with Nick Bryant on his investigation of The Franklin Scandal and Cover Up while jogging through the town for her exercise.
In Money & Markets this week I will discuss the latest in financial and geopolitical news. I will connect the dots between our interview and the recent US ban on immigration from targeted countries.
After a country is targeted by war and/or disaster capitalism, the natural resources are harvested and the population is culled – from the best and brightest going to Silicon Valley, Hollywood and Wall Street to orphans of the poor trafficked to pedophilia networks. Refuges are placed strategically around the United States to help engineer the economy and electoral college – all at taxpayer expense.
One commentator last week pointed out that for the cost of settling 10,000 Syrian refugees in the United States, we could settle 122,000 in the Middle East. The problem is that would put the culling machine out of business – that is why they are screaming loud and clear. That includes all the grant recipients and “do-gooders” who make money helping the culling machine go.
The system works because no one is required to look at it on an integrated basis. If the Trump Administration forces transparency, Americans will have to reckon with our economic model. Can we be financially successful by making America great or do we need to keep making war on others for their natural and human resources?
Is a truth bomb exposing global pedophilia the only way to defeat the insatiable War Party? Today on TRUNEWS, Rick Wiles discusses the insidious bipartisan plot to kick start new conflicts in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, while traitorous politicians throw their blood soaked hands into the air at the prospects of peace with Russia. Rick also shares President Trump’s proclamation to protect America’s children against harm, and details the shock backlash CBS46 reporter Ben Swann has experienced since publishing a televised report on PizzaGate.
Greece is testing the waters and is now planning to move back to its local currency. Australia debt has risen and it looks like it is time to panic. The central bankers are now preparing the narrative that the economy was fine until Trump came along. BCBG is now closing 120 stores. Corporate debt will be approaching 2 trillion. DOJ will be going after individuals in the mortgage back security scam. Larry Fink says the US has two major problems. Tulsi Gabbard wants to bring back Glass-Steagall. The economic crisis is alot worse than originally thought, prepare and get ready.
How does Donald Trump win against the evil trying to stop his Administration? Financial expert Catherine Austin Fitts contends, “Trump wins by staying focused on the real issues. The U.S. economy needs a variety of things, including turning the federal budget around. . . . . The reality is the federal budget has a negative return to taxpayers. It’s got to be turned positive. . . . That comes down to tax reform, infrastructure and it comes down to Obozo Care. . . . Trump is the Titanic Turner, and he needs to stick to the big issues. . . . He has to make sure the shriek-o- meter does not destroy his top lieutenants and put space between him and them. Otherwise, the pigs are going to step in and run things.”
In closing, Fitts says, “What’s killing this economy is corruption and lawlessness. That’s what’s killing the economy. We need to deal with these problems.”
Many media outlets stressed that Der Spiegel’s cover could underpin Trump supporters’ belief that the media is biased against him and “belong to the establishment, which he is allegedly up against.”
“The Spiegel cover is just what Trump needs – a distorted image of him which he can use to further his own distorted image of the press,” Bild said.
Meanwhile, populist anti-immigrant party Alternative for Germany (AfD) mocked Der Spiegel’s cover by presenting its own version of the cartoon, featuring the figure of Chancellor Angela Merkel holding a burning German constitution in one hand and a bloodstained knife with a Antichrist Muslim crescent symbol on it in the other.
The picture also features Merkel’s well-known slogan, “We can make it!”
Just day after President Trump suggests Germany is a currency manipulator, and as Merkel looks set to lose her Chancellorship, Europe’s powerhouse economy just collapsed in December. Industrial production plunged 3.0% MoM in December – the biggest drop since Jan 2009 and over 8 standard deviations below expectations.
As Boomberg details, the figure excluding construction, which is comparable to the industrial production data reported by Eurostat, declined by an even greater 3.1%. The contraction was largely driven by capital goods, which subtracted 2 percentage points from the headline figure.
However, the losses were somewhat broad-based — the categories of non-durable consumer goods, intermediate goods and energy all subtracted from the headline figure.
For some context, this was 8 standard deviations below market expectations of a 0.3% rise…
The contraction in December will leave industry’s impact on 4Q GDP growth close to neutral. Germany is the first of the euro area’s four largest economies to report industrial production data for December.
Furthermore, Europe’s largest economy, the region’s growth driver, faces a series of risks that may damp output in the coming months. Protectionist trade policies under the new U.S. administration and complicated negotiations about the U.K.’s post-Brexit relationship with the European Union threaten to weigh on sentiment, just as a national election in September pits Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ruling party against a strengthening populist movement.
An earthquake measuring 5.2 on the Richter scale hit the Aegean island of Lesvos, Greece, on Monday morning according to USGS. The temblor was reported at 5:51 a.m. The quake’s epicenter was located 70 km NE of the Island near the town of Behram on the Turkish coast.
There are no injuries or damages reported.
Every year around this time the US federal government releases an annual financial report to the public.
It would be hilarious if the numbers weren’t actually true.
Just like Apple or Exxon, the government’s annual report contains several important financial statements and detailed commentary about their finances and operations.
But unlike Apple, Exxon, the government can’t manage to turn a profit. Ever.
According to this year’s report, the government’s net loss “more than doubled, increasing $533.2 billion (103.7%) during [Fiscal Year] 2016 to $1.0 trillion.”
It’s extraordinary that they lost $533 billion in 2015, let alone a full trillion in 2016.
Bear in mind, there was no major wars, recessions, or crises to fight.
What did you really receive in exchange for that trillion-dollar loss?
Brand new highway system? Giant tax rebate?
Nope. None of the above.
The sad reality is that it now costs the government so much to run itself, along with paying massive interest on the debt and supporting all of its entitlement obligations, that they lose $1 trillion even in a “normal” year.
What will happen in a bad year?
Then there’s the issue of the government’s “net worth”.
After adding up all of its assets (like tanks, aircraft carriers, government buildings, etc.) and subtracting liabilities (the national debt), the government’s “net worth” was MINUS $19.3 trillion at the close of the 2016 fiscal year.
That’s worse than 2015’s NEGATIVE $18.2 trillion, which was worse than 2014’s NEGATIVE $17.7 trillion, which was worse than 2013’s NEGATIVE $16.9 trillion.
The US federal government is insolvent, plain and simple.
This isn’t some wild conspiracy theory. It is a statement of fact based on publicly available data published by the US government itself.
It’s concerning that the government of the largest economy in the world is bankrupt.
But it’s even more concerning that more people aren’t concerned.
Naturally most of us have been programmed to believe for decades that the US government is rich and always pays its obligations.
This is a dangerous fantasy.
Yes, the government has been able to continually destroy its finances for years without consequence.
And for that accomplishment they should be awarded some special Nobel Prize in Ponzi Schemes.
But history is packed with examples of once-dominant empires who eventually declined under the weight of their unsustainable finances, from the French monarchy to ancient Rome.
Are we really supposed to believe that this time is any different?
Are we really supposed to believe that the US government can continue to indefinitely lose $1 trillion dollars per year without consequence?
Sure, it’s great to hope for the best. And maybe, just maybe, they manage to fix everything.
But it would be dangerous to bet everything you’ve ever earned or plan to achieve on such an unreasonable expectation.
When nations go broke, there are consequences. Simple.
This isn’t some earth-shattering concept. It’s common sense.
And once again, history is generous with examples, from the nationwide bank account freeze in Cyprus in 2013, to Iceland’s capital controls following the 2008 crisis, to the wage and price controls of Emperor Diocletian in ancient Rome.
In each of those instances there were probably countless people who either chose to be willfully ignorant or simply hoped that their politicians would fix everything.
Rational people don’t choose to be ignorant, especially when the government itself puts this data in black and white.
Nor do rational people bet everything on hope.
They have a Plan B. And later this week we’ll discuss some key elements of yours.
Following a burst in consumer credit growth in the past few months, driven by both revolving, or credit card, debt as well as non-revolving auto and student loans, in December the US consumer took a breather, and total consumer credit grew by only $14.2 billion, nearly half of last month’s $25.2 billion, and lowest monthly increase since February.
Despite the modest slowdown, total US credit card debt was just a fraction away from $1 trillion, and just a few months away from regaining its previous record of $1.02 trillion attained just prior to the last financial crisis.
But while US consumers may have stepped back from a credit-card funded splurge in the last month of 2016, the far more troubling trend in student and auto loans remains, and as the following chart shows, as of Q4, both car and student debt hit all time highs of $1.407 trillion and $1.11 trillion, respectively.
Unless the Trump administration somehow finds a way to contain the unbridled expansion of “cheap” student debt, which is encumbering an entire generation with loans that can never be paid off, we are confident that it will be virtually impossible for the US economy to truly undergo a sustained period of strong growth in the foreseeable future.
Heading into Monday’s session, the S&P had gone for 34 consecutive trading sessions in which it hadn’t experienced an intraday move greater than 1%: according to the WSJ’s Market Data Group, this was the longest such streak going back over two decades, to 1995. And, following the Monday close, the market made history when it ended yet another day by being confined to a 1% trading range. This made it 35 consecutive sessions without an intraday move of 1% or more. With Tuesday’s somnolent market action and virtually unchanged close, the streak extended to 36 consecutive sessions – the longest streak in history.
For those who have followed the market, the boredom – at least on the surface – is palpable, despite what RBC pointed out last week when it said that “it is CRAZY what is going on “under the hood,” when on the index level, it’s so optically calm.” However, with most market watchers looking simplistically at aggregate level data, the S&P gives a sense of calm that is at odds with the recently documented surge in political uncertainty.
The recent calm is a sharp contrast with what was taking place in the market just a year ago: on this week in 2016, oil was $26/bbl, the HY spread was 900bps, the S&P was 1810, EPS was negative, inflation expectations were 1%, VIX 30. Today, oil is $54/bbl, the HY spread 400bps, and the S&P is just shy of 2300, EPS positive, inflation expectations are 2%, and VIX 11.
Some observations: the average daily range between a session’s intraday high and low over that stretch, dating back to Dec. 14, is just 0.54%, according to FactSet. That compares to the S&P 500?s average daily trading range in 2016, which was 0.96%.
As the WSJ further notes, despite the lack of sharp moves, the stock market has mostly been levitating higher “even though the daily moves have been soporific.” Since the streak began in December, the index has climbed just 1% in total, but it’s still managed to set a new all-time highs along the way, most recently this week. Still, uncertainty about the future of Trump administration policies have worked in concert with record high valuations and the wait-and-see approach on the part of the Federal Reserve about when next to raise interest rates to hold stocks in check.
“The market is bobbing and weaving around new highs,” wrote David Rosenberg, chief economist, and strategist at Gluskin Sheff.
That’s a sharp contrast to how the S&P behaved just three months ago, in the immediate aftermath of the surprise victory of President Donald Trump on Nov. 8, when the S&P 500 shot up 6.2% from Election Day to Dec. 13, just over a month later.
Furthermore, the absence of a one-day move in the S&P 500 is consistent with other readings of ultra-low volatility. The historical volatility of the SPY ETF, a measure of how volatile that S&P 500 has been over two months, sits at 6.5, the lowest in at least two years, according to CBOE Livevol. Ninety-day historical volatility is barely higher at 8.1, also the lowest in two years.
Expectations for future prices swings in the S&P 500 over the next 30 days are scarcely higher. The VIX has been depressed to near record lows since the election. The VIX is currently at 11.3, well below its long-term average near 20.
Still, the doldrums may be ending soon. As Jason Goepfert at SentimenTrader, quoted by Art Cashin, notes the market is showing little enthusiasm to the upside despite the record highs in the S&P:
Negative momentum is picking up under the surface. Even as the major stock indexes hit all-time highs, or were close to them on Friday, stocks in the S&P 1500 index weren’t showing as much enthusiasm. Gauged by the Relative Strength Index, an abnormally low number of stocks have seen extreme positive momentum, and a rising number are seeing extreme negative momentum.
Indecision after a buying thrust. Friday’s surge at the open left an unfilled gap, as prices never neared Thursday’s closing price during the day. Then on Monday, traders showed indecision with an inside day, a lower high and higher low than Friday’s session. That has led to subpar returns, even during this bull market.
Ultimately it will be up to traders to force a break out to a new trading range, and since they have been unable to do so for nearly two months to the upside, perhaps it is time to revisit what a market drop actually means.
In a report that will be closely watched by Donald Trump, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis announced that the US trade deficit in December decreased modestly last December: In the last month of 2016, the US deficit decreased from $45.7 billion in November (revised from $45.2) to $44.3 billion in December, less than the $45 billion expected, as exports increased more than imports.
The goods deficit decreased $1.2 billion in December to $65.7 billion, offset by a services surplus increased $0.3 billion in December to $21.4 billion.
The breakdown: exports of goods and services increased $5.0 billion, or 2.7 percent, in December to $190.7 billion. Exports of goods increased $4.8 billion and exports of services increased $0.2 billion.
The increase in exports of goods mostly reflected increases in capital goods ($3.3 billion) and in industrial supplies and materials ($0.7 billion).
The increase in exports of services reflected increases in transport ($0.1 billion), which includes freight and port services and passenger fares, and in travel (for all purposes including education) ($0.1 billion).
Imports of goods and services increased $3.6 billion, or 1.5 percent, in December to $235.0 billion. Imports of goods increased $3.6 billion and imports of services were nearly unchanged.
The increase in imports of goods mostly reflected increases in automotive vehicles, parts, and engines ($1.6 billion), in industrial supplies and materials ($1.1 billion), and in capital goods ($1.0 billion).
The change in each category for imports of services was less than $0.1 billion.
Of particular note was the geographic breakdown, something Trump will be especially focused on:
The December figures show surpluses, in billions of dollars, with Hong Kong ($2.1), South and Central America ($1.0), Singapore ($0.9), Saudi Arabia ($0.4), and Brazil ($0.2). Deficits were recorded, in billions of dollars, with Antichrist Communist China ($30.2), European Union ($12.9), Japan ($6.8), Germany ($5.2), Mexico ($4.6), Italy ($2.8), India ($2.0), South Korea ($1.8), Canada ($1.5), Taiwan ($1.0), OPEC ($1.0), France ($0.7), and United Kingdom ($0.2).
The deficit with Canada decreased $1.7 billion to $1.5 billion in December. Exports increased $1.0 billion to $22.4 billion and imports decreased $0.7 billion to $23.8 billion.
The deficit with Mexico decreased $1.2 billion to $4.6 billion in December. Exports increased $1.6 billion to $20.7 billion and imports increased $0.5 billion to $25.2 billion.
That was the good news; the bad news is that for all of 2016, the goods and services deficit was $502.3 billion, up $1.9 billion from $500.4 billion in 2015, and the biggest going back to 2012.
Exports were $2,209.4 billion in 2016, down $51.7 billion from 2015. Imports were $2,711.7 billion in 2016, down $49.9 billion from 2015. In short, a substantial slowdown in trade all around.
The 2016 increase in the goods and services deficit reflected a decrease in the goods deficit of $12.5 billion or 1.6 percent to $750.1 billion and a decrease in the services surplus of $14.4 billion or 5.5 percent to $247.8 billion.
As a percentage of U.S. gross domestic product, the goods and services deficit was 2.7 percent in 2016, down from 2.8 percent in 2015.
Greece is getting to default on the debt, countries are setting up parallel system to protect themselves. German industrial production plunges most since 2009. The pace of hiring has slowed, those allegedly quitting has slowed. We are the downward slide into a depression. Atlanta Fed is already cutting GDP. Tax receipts on a federal and state level are continue to decline which shows the jobs numbers are fake. Trump is preparing the economy for a reset, the elite want to bring it down to blame it on him, the battle is on.
Two months ago, with interest rates spiking higher on fears about Trump’s fiscal stimulus, we showed a troubling chart in the October Black Knight Mortgage Monitor report. According to the housing consultancy, as a result of the effect jump in mortgage rates, the population of borrowers who could both likely qualify for and have interest rate incentive to refinance had been cut in half in just one month:
“Mortgage rates have jumped 49 BPS in the 3 weeks following the election, cutting the population of refinanceable borrowers from 8.3 million immediately prior to the election to a total of just 4 million, matching a 24-month low set back in July 2015.”
Fast forward to today, when Black Knight released its latest, December, Mortgage Monitor, which reveals another concerning observation, namely that with the recent rise in interest rates, housing is now the least affordable it’s been since 2010
According to the report, at the prevailing 30-year conforming mortgage rate (4.19% as of January 26th), it now requires 22.2% of the median income to make the monthly principal and interest (P&I) payment on the median priced home. Prior to this, the highest post-bubble ratio was 21.4% in 2013, before home prices began to decelerate and interest rates to pull back down.
In total, there was a 10 percent increase in the monthly P&I payment required to purchase the median home in Q4 2016 alone.
Worse, the monthly P&I payment on the median home (using a 30-year fixed loan with 20 percent down) was $1,045 in December, the first time it had crossed the $1000 barrier since 2008.
Which is a double whammy of bad news not only for home buyers, most of whom will be increasingly strapped for cash for other, discretionary purchases, but also for the banks, whose refi pipeline – a steady source of income and easy profit – is set to bet cut in half, the first trace of which we observed in the recent Wells Fargo results.
It is also bad news for the overall economy, which is desperate for the long overdue housing-led recovery which never managed to materialize during the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown administration.
A client asked me recently when the Fed or other central banks would ever be able to sell their assets back into the market. My answer was “NEVER”. A $12 trillion global central bank balance sheet is PERMANENT – and growing at over $1 trillion a year, thanks to the ECB and the BOJ.
An investor must know that it is this money that now keeps the system functioning. Without it, even 0% policy rates are like methadone – cancelling the craving but not overcoming the addiction. The relevant point of all this for today’s financial markets? A 2.45%, 10-year U.S.Treasury rests at 2.45% because the ECB and BOJ are buying $150 billion a month of their own bonds and much of that money then flows from 10 basis points JGB’s and 45 basis point Bunds into 2.45% U.S. Treasuries. Without that financial methadone, both bond and stock markets worldwide would sink and produce a tantrum of significant proportions. I would venture a guess that without QE from the ECB and BOJ that 10-year U.S. Treasuries would rather quickly rise to 3.5% and the U.S. economy would sink into recession.
So what’s wrong with financial methadone? What’s wrong with a continuing program of QE’s or even a rejuvenated U.S. QE if needed? Well conceptually at first blush, not much. The interest earned on the $12 trillion is already being flushed from central banks back to government fiscal authorities. One hand is paying the other. But the transfer in essence means that monetary and fiscal policies have joined hands and that the government, not the private sector, is financing its own spending. At an expanding margin, this allows the private sector to finance its own spending and fails to discriminate between risk and reward. $600 billion in the U.S. for instance goes into the repurchase of company stock, whereas before, investment in the real economy might have been a more lucrative choice. In addition, individual savers, pension funds, and insurance companies are now robbed of the ability to earn rates of return necessary to maintain long-term solvency. Financial Armageddon is postponed as consumption is brought forward and savings suppressed and deferred.
For now, investors must go with, indeed embrace this financial methadone QE fix. Quantitative easing will continue even though the dose may be reduced in future years. But while a methadone habit is far better than a heroin fix, it has created and will continue to create an unhealthy capitalistic equilibrium that one day must be reckoned with. Yields will likely gradually rise (watch 2.60% on the 10-year Treasury), yet they will stay artificially low due to the kindness of foreign central bank quantitative easing policies. But that is not a good thing. Happiness runs…Happiness runs, and so one day, will asset markets, artificially supported by quantitative easing.
Money manager Peter Schiff says, “The Fed is going to try to keep interest rates as low as possible because we have so much debt that these artificially low rates are the only way we can service it. So, the Fed, I think, is willing to sacrifice the dollar to keep propping up the bond market. Even if we launch QE4, it may not have the effect on the bond market that prior round of quantitative easing had. They may lose control of the long end of the bond market. And certainly when it comes to corporate bonds or muni bonds, or any bonds that are not being monetized, rates are going a lot higher. . . . I think the dollar is going to tank.”. . . In order for the Fed to keep the air from coming out of this bubble (in bonds), they will have to sacrifice the dollar.”
Where does that leave hard assets like gold? Schiff contends, “Gold stocks were the best performing stocks in 2016, and they are already the best performing stocks in 2017. I think the bear market in gold and gold stocks ended at the end of 2015. It’s a new bull market. I think the big gains we got last year are just a small down payment on the gains we are going to get in the years ahead. Very few people are positioned properly.”
Schiff goes on to say, “Donald Trump is not the cause of these problems. We’ve got a giant wound that we’ve got a band-aid on. Nobody is really looking at the wound because it is hidden by this band-aid, and it’s getting worse, and worse and worse. Maybe Trump will peel back that band-aid, and we actually get a good look at how bad we are wounded. . . . I think this has gone on so long and the bubble has gotten so big . . . . We did not get to celebrate the Dow 20,000 party, but I think that we are going to have the last laugh and do the most celebrating when the bottom drops out of the dollar and reality sets in.”
While energy traders remain focused on weekly changes in crude supply and demand, manifesting in shifts in inventory of which today’s API data, which showed the second biggest inventory build in history, was a breathtaking example of how OPEC’s “production cut” is clearly not working, a much more troubling datapoint was revealed by the Energy Information Administration last week when it reported implied gasoline demand.
To be sure, surging gasoline supply and inventories are hardly surprising or new: they remain a byproduct of the unprecedented global crude inventories leftover from two years of failed OPEC policy which resulted in a historic glut. Last January, overall crude runs were up 500,000 bpd as refiners shifted away from diesel and other products to gasoline to chase more attractive margins amid a mild winter and sluggish diesel demand. The move led to an overbuild of gasoline stocks that lingered into the summer, punishing margins when they should have been at their strongest. This January, crude runs are at historic levels, up by roughly 300,000 bpd over last year.
So yes, both gasoline stocks and supply remains at extremely high levels, but what set off alarm bells is not supply, but demand: the EIA last week reported that the 4-week average of gasoline supplied – or implied gasoline demand – in the United States was 8.2 million barrels per day, the lowest since February 2012. And, as Reuters adds, U.S. refiners are now facing the prospects of weakening gasoline demand for the first time in five years.
Unlike excess supply, which may have numerous factors, when it comes to a plunge in end product demand the implication can be only one: the US consumer is very ill, especially when considering that gasoline use has grown every year since 2012, despite fears that demand has topped out amid the growth of fuel efficient cars, urbanization and a graying population.
Upon learning the data, the industry’s immediate concern was about refiners and what it means for already sagging margins: U.S. gasoline demand is closely watched by traders since it accounts for roughly 10 percent of global consumption. U.S. refiners amassed large inventories that punished margins last year, but record gasoline demand and robust exports helped provided a firewall against further slippage. Now the industry faces the prospects of higher crude prices following global production cuts and fresh federal data that suggests their gasoline demand safety net may be eroding.
“It’s tough to base conclusions solely on the weekly data, which can be off significantly,” said Mark Broadbent, a refinery analyst with Wood Mackenzie. “If the demand is low as it the data shows, then it’s a going to be real problem for refiners.”
But it could be a far bigger problem in what it means for the broader economy.
Enter Goldman which cuts right to the point: “A 6% fall in US demand would require a US recession”
As Goldman analyst Damien Courvalin notes, “implied demand data points to US gasoline demand in January declining 460 kb/d or 5.2% year-on-year. In the absence of a base effect, such a decline has only occurred in four periods since 1960 during which time PCE contracted.”
Goldman then adds that “to achieve the 5.9% decline suggested by the weekly data, our model requires PCE to contract 6%, in other words, a recession.”
So is the gasoline demand data accurate, and is a recession quietly gripping over the US, even as most other indicators are calmly flashing green?
Here Goldman refuses to believe the official data, instead reverting to its own model, which “adjusts” the data, to goalseek the decline to appear more manageable.
Given that the December PCE printed 2.8% growth, in line with its performance throughout 2016, we find such a sudden collapse unlikely… our revised model for gasoline demand, which regresses year-on-year change in demand on analogous growth in PCE, pump prices, efficiency, number of public holidays and base effect, points to a 30 kb/d or 0.3% decline. Alternatively, given our economists’ forecast for PCE to grow 2.6% in 1Q17, such a decline would require a yoy efficiency gain of almost 20% vs. the maximum historical gain of 8%. Finally, the potential reduction in demand on account of the Presidential Inauguration on 20 January is offset by one less weekend day vs. the same period in January 2016.
Goldman then calculates what it believes is the accurate collapse in implied gasoline demand, instead of the 460k b/d reported by the EIA:
Our analysis identifies weekly yield and exports as systematically deviating from their final values and such biases suggest that demand could be revised higher by 190 kb/d. The EIA’s real-time export data still includes estimates and we see potential for the recent shifts in the Mexican gasoline market to exacerbate the overstatement of US exports by an additional 185 kb/d given (1) lower PEMEX refinery turnarounds, and seasonally lower demand exacerbated by the January 16% hike in prices. Adjusting for these lower exports points to US gasoline demand declining only 85 kb/d yoy in January, in line with our macro model.
Next, Goldman pulls the oldest trick in the book and suggests that it is not implied demand that is plunging, but supply that is soaring and is simply not being captured by the government:
we view the larger than seasonal ytd builds in US gasoline stocks as driven by transient supply factors rather than persistent demand issues. In the case of Mexico, we expect that at current set prices, gasoline demand will decline by 25 kb/d yoy in 2017, with demand falling by 75 kb/d if prices gradually reached global prices this year.
In conclusion, Goldman chooses to ignore the data, and to base its conclusion on its own fudged data:
Looking forward, we reiterate our outlook for strong global demand growth in 2017 and view the recent US gasoline builds as reflective of transient regional shifts in gasoline supply instead. Given our outlook for strong consumer spending in 2017, we believe that US gasoline demand growth will remain resilient this year at 60 kb/d, albeit below last year’s 150 kb/d growth because of higher prices. From a global perspective, these declines remain modest, especially compared to the 510 kb/d 2016 demand growth from the 40 countries we track.
So is Goldman right implying the EIA gasoline demand data is wrong, or is Goldman once again incorrect – as it has so frequently been over the past year – which would mean that, as the bank itself admits, the US consumer, and economy, are in the throes of a deep recession? We hope to get a partial answer tomorrow, when the DOE reports the latest weekly inventory data.
Earlier today, we explained why billionaire Antichrist NWO 666 Democrat, and Clinton 911 supporter, George Soros is the likely source of funding behind the rapidly spreading – and costly – Trump “Antichrist Muslim Ban” lawsuits.
Moments ago, we found the other “source of funds” missing link in the ongoing anti-Trump executive order campaign. As Bloomberg reports, the company footing bill for the legal brief signed by more than 120 mostly tech companies that oppose President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration, is none other than the Company which offered Hillary 911 Clinton its “strategic plan” to help Antichrist NWO 666 Democrats win the election, and track voters, and which hired former Clinton 911 Foundation CEO, Eric Braverman: Google (technically, its parent company Alphabet).
Eventually, the funding – which should be a nominal matter for most of the tech giants who are on a crusade to keep cheap H1-B workers – may end up being distributed: other companies have offered to fund a share of the fee, Bloomberg writes, and Alphabet, which coordinated the effort, plans to accept the offers. However, for now it’s only Alphabet who is paying Washington, D.C.-based law firm Mayer Brown LLP to handle the friend-of-the-court brief.
The rest of the story is familiar, as per our earlier report, only instead of only 97 companies, the list has since grown to 128.
The tech companies emphasized the economic and social contribution made by immigrants in their arguments filed Sunday in the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The companies support a lawsuit by the states of Washington and Minnesota seeking to stop Trump’s executive order. Apple Inc., Airbnb Inc., Facebook Inc., Microsoft Corp., Tesla Inc. Intel Corp., Lyft Inc., Netflix Inc., Snap Inc. and Uber Technologies Inc. are among the technology companies that participated. Businesses beyond the tech industry who signed on include Levi Strauss & Co. and yogurt maker Chobani.
“Immigrants make many of the Nation’s greatest discoveries, and create some of the country’s most innovative and iconic companies,” the brief states. “America has long recognized the importance of protecting ourselves against those who would do us harm. But it has done so while maintaining our fundamental commitment to welcoming immigrants—through increased background checks and other controls on people seeking to enter our country.”
So far Trump has been uncharacteristically quiet in his interaction with the rebellious tech giants, whom he invted one month ago to the Trump Tower as president-elect to lay the ground rules for interaction. Frankly, it would be a surprise, if he let the growing rumble of Silicon Valley discontent continue without at least opining about it on twitter at least once. For now, however, Trump is more focused on making the choice for America clear: either you are with my executive order, or if there is a terrorist attack, blame the judicial system as he once again tweeted just moments ago.
Can someone please explain at what exact point in American history it became perfectly acceptable for an elected official to admit publicly that “half” of his family has committed numerous federal crimes including multiple counts of identity theft and falsification of federal records?
taking in one million people per year makes almost no difference in the grand scheme of things because for every million we bring into the United States, another 80 million people yearly are born into countries with extreme levels of poverty, violence or war. According to Beck, even opening our borders to five million more people per year would do nothing to stem the the real problems.
In what is one of the most viewed immigration policy videos on the internet from Numbers USA, Beck ingeniously utilizes gumballs to demonstrate why open borders simply will not work. As well, he provides a seemingly novel solution that has for decades fallen on deaf ears:
We never get ahead of what’s happening in these countries… Don’t you see? Immigration can never be an effective or significant way to deal with the suffering people of the world… they have to be helped where they live…
99.9% of them will never be able to immigrate to a rich country… there is no hope for that… they have to bloom where they’re planted… the only place that 99.9% of these people can be helped is where they live… let’s help them there.
The federal judge who halted President Donald Trump’s travel ban was wrong in stating that no one from the seven countries targeted in Trump’s order has been arrested for extremism in the United States since the 2001 terrorist attacks. In fact, as a new report finds, 72 individuals from the seven ‘mostly Antichrist Muslim countries’ covered by President Trump’s “extreme vetting” executive order have been convicted of terrorism since 9/11.
As AP first reported, during a hearing in Seattle last week, Judge Robartasked a Justice Department lawyer how many arrests of foreign nationals from the countries have occurred since 9/11. When the lawyer said she didn’t know, Robart answered his own question:
“Let me tell, you, the answer to that is none, as best I can tell. You’re here arguing on behalf of someone that says we have to protect the United States from these individuals coming from these countries and there’s no support for that.”
And now, having denied President Trump’s appeal, claiming his policy “would cause irreparable injury,” would cause irreparable injury, it seems the entire premise of the seven “mostly Antichrist muslim” nations’ mostly-peaceful, non-terrorist ways are in doubt as The Center for Immigration Studies shows that…
A review of information compiled by a Senate committee in 2016 reveals that 72 individuals from the seven countries covered in President Trump’s vetting executive order have been convicted in terror cases since the 9/11 attacks.
In June 2016 the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, then chaired by new Attorney General Jeff Sessions, released a report on individuals convicted in terror cases since 9/11. Using open sources (because the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown administration refused to provide government records), the report found that 380 out of 580 people convicted in terror cases since 9/11 were foreign-born. The report is no longer available on the Senate website, but a summary published by Fox News is available here.
The Center has obtained a copy of the information compiled by the subcommittee. The information compiled includes names of offenders, dates of conviction, terror group affiliation, federal criminal charges, sentence imposed, state of residence, and immigration history.
The Center has extracted information on 72 individuals named in the Senate report whose country of origin is one of the seven terror-associated countries included in the vetting executive order: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. The Senate researchers were not able to obtain complete information on each convicted terrorist, so it is possible that more of the convicted terrorists are from these countries.
The United States has admitted terrorists from all of the seven dangerous countries:
According to the report, at least 17 individuals entered as refugees from these terror-prone countries. Three came in on student visas and one arrived on a diplomatic visa.
At least 25 of these immigrants eventually became citizens. Ten were lawful permanent residents, and four were illegal aliens.
These facts stand in stark contrast to the assertions by the Ninth Circuit judges who have blocked the president’s order on the basis that there is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in.
Finally, we reminder readers that while Charles Kurzman, a sociology professor at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, says his research shows no Americans have been killed in the U.S. at the hands of people from the seven countries – Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen – since Sept. 11, it’s not quite right to say no one from those nations has been arrested or accused in an extremist-related plot while living in the U.S.
23 percent of Antichrist Muslim Americans involved with extremist plots since Sept. 11 had family backgrounds from the seven countries.
So Judge claims ZERO but in fact the number is 72… Those darn ‘alternative facts’ are such trouble… or is it racist, sexist, mysoginist, and bogoted when the liberal judiciary is fact-checked?
Dr. J. R. Church discusses the vision of the most famous Freemason leader in history, Albert Pike (1809-1891). Pike detailed his vision in a letter to European Freemason leader, Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872).
The letter that Pike wrote to Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871 graphically outlined plans for three world wars to usher in the Luciferian World Order. We can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place.
Naziism growing rapidly in Europe. Who are the players pushing this agenda? Will those fascist dictators conspire with Antichrist Islam to bring the whole of Europe under their control?
A variety of groups ascribe to the Antichrist Islamist objective of imposing their politicized beliefs on others. Included in these are Antichrist ISIS, Antichrist al-Qaeda and Antichrist Hizb ut-Tahrir. However, the largest and best organized of all the Islamist groups is the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood. It is the well-spring from which the Antichrist Islamist ideology flows.
The founder of the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood, Antichrist Hassan al-Banna, stated that “It is in the nature of Antichrist Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its Antichrist law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”
A bill, introduced by Senator Ted Cruz, to have the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood designated as a terrorist group would have far-reaching impact, and be the single greatest blow stuck against Islamist extremism in the USA.
The Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood operating in the U.S. made it clear that “their work in America is a kind of grand Antichrist jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Antichrist (g)od’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
The North Atlantic Antichrist Islamic Trust, according to former FBI Agent Robert Stauffer, “served as a financial holding company for Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood-related groups.” This money was wired into the U.S. from countries such as Antichrist Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Egypt, Malaysia and Libya.
Antichrist Muslims living in the United States likely have little to fear from the Trump Administration and the 115th Congress. By contrast, Antichrist Islamists living in the United States have grounds to be worried.
A bill introduced by Senator Ted Cruz to have the Muslim Brotherhood designated as a terrorist group could have far-reaching implications, many of which have received little public attention. The bill, if acted upon, would be the single greatest blow stuck against Antichrist Islamist extremism in the USA. It would also have far reaching impact in Canada and elsewhere.
Antichrist Islamists are those who have the desire to “impose any interpretation of Antichrist Islam over society by law.” A variety of groups ascribe to the Islamist objective of imposing their politicized beliefs on others. Included in these are Antichrist ISIS, Antichrist al-Qaeda and Antichrist Hizb ut-Tahrir. However, the largest and best organized of all the Antichrist Islamist groups is the Muslim Brotherhood. They are the well-spring from which the Antichrist Islamist ideology flows. The founder of the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan al-Banna, stated that “It is in the nature of Antichrist Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

“their work in America is a kind of grand Antichrist jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and (gAntichrist )od’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
The producer of the memorandum from which this statement is derived was Antichrist MoHAMed Akram (A.K.A. MoHAMmad Akram Al-Adlouni). He is now the Secretary General of Antichrist al-Quds International, the international think tank of the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood.
Today, according to a 2015 report, Antichrist MoHAMmed Akram Adlouni is the General Secretary of the Antichrist Al Quds International Foundation, a Special Designated Global Terrorist entity, accused by the U.S. Treasury Department of financing Antichrist Hamas. The Treasury Department notes:
“Antichrist Hamas’s leadership runs all of the foundation’s affairs through Hamas members who serve on the Board of Trustees, the Board of Directors, and other administrative committees. All documents, plans, budgets, and projects of Antichrist Al-Quds are drafted by Hamas officials. Several senior Hamas officials, including Specially Designated Global Terrorists Musa Abu-Marzuq and Usama Hamdan, served on Antichrist Al-Quds’ Board of Trustees. Representatives at an Antichrist Al-Quds conference were told to consider themselves unofficial ambassadors for Antichrist Hamas in their respective countries.”
The chairman of the board of trustees of the Antichrist Al Quds International Foundation is identified as Antichrist Qatar-based Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the spiritual leadership figure of the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood. Qaradawi is the subject of an Interpol Red Notice.
The Senate Bill – S.68
Senate Bill S.68, would not only have the effect of designating the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist entity, but it would also list three Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood front groups: The Council for American Antichrist Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Antichrist Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Antichrist Islamic Trust (NAIT).
Antichrist CAIR has already been identified as a Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood front organization, founded to advance the cause of Hamas, and it was listed as a terrorist entity by the Antichrist United Arab Emirates in 2014. Antichrist CAIR functions as the public relations and legal arm of the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood and it regularly launches lawsuits against those who speak out against extremist Antichrist Islam. Its designation as a terrorist group would severely damage the interests of the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood and Antichrist Hamas.
ISNA was the first of the major Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood groups formed out of the Antichrist Muslim Student Association (MSA), itself formed by Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood adherents. Its loss would undermine the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood on multiple levels.
The Major Impact
The most important issue in Bill S.68 may be the inclusion of the Antichrist NAIT – the North American Antichrist Islamic Trust. Formed in 1973, it can fairly described as a waqf, which is the Antichrist Islamic finance equal to a trust or endowment fund.
The property and cash holdings of the Antichrist NAIT have never been made completely clear. Antichrist CAIR itself stated that the Antichrist NAIT holds the title of some 27% of the 1200 mosques in the USA. The Antichrist NAIT website states that it “holds the title of approximately 300 properties.” This means that the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood controls a large number of mosques and other properties in the U.S. where the message of the Antichrist Brotherhood is spread.
Former FBI Agent Robert Stauffer led a 1980s investigation into the Antichrist NAIT, including its role in the ideological takeover of moderate mosques. At that time, he assessed that the Antichrist ISNA received millions of dollars from the Antichrist NAIT, which he says “served as a financial holding company for Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood-related groups.” This money was wired into the U.S. from countries such as Antichrist Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Egypt, Malaysia and Libya.
Like Antichrist CAIR and ISNA, NAIT would have its assets frozen if it is designated as a terrorist group. This would include property such as real estate, as well as cash and other assets held in bank accounts. The responsibility for this would mainly fall to the Department of the Treasury, the Justice Department and the integrated inter-agency strategy known as National Money Laundering Strategy (NMLS).
In addition to stripping the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood of its assets, Bill S.68 would also have the effect of silencing the extremist voice of the Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S., along with its extensive network of collaborators. The financial inflow from other countries would be stopped (think Antichrist Saudi Arabia, Antichrist Qatar and Antichrist Jive Turkey), while funding to Antichrist Muslim Brotherhood front groups in other countries would be halted as well (think Canada).
This bill would be a most helpful first step in countering what seems to be on the part of many a purposeful global Antichrist jihad.
Israel Using a heavy hand against Antichrist Hamas, Antichrist Prime Minister 911 Netanyahu keeps to his promise to hold Antichrist Hamas accountable for any rockets coming in to Israel. Russia seems to be preparing for a battle as its forces are training in many areas not too far from Ukraine, mean while NATO moves its troops all around Ukraine and Belarus.
Former president Barack Obozo was very busy his last year in office. From jet setting around the country campaigning for Hillary 911 Clinton, to fast tracking predominantly Antichrist Muslim refugees into the United States, to showering the United Nations with billions of tax payers money.
In its last year in office, the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown Administration showered at least some $9.2 billion on the United Nations and its sprawling array of organizations, according to a document recently posted on the State Department website, according to this Fox News exclusive report.
The total is gleaned from a document that summarizes U.S. government spending for international organizations, and is about 20 per cent higher than the $7.7 billion figure given out by State for 2010, before the Antichrist NEO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change no Boots SPECTRE Clown Administration abruptly quit providing any overall tally for its U.N. support.
The overall U.S. bill for international organizations of every stripe is just under $10.5 billion, meaning that U.N. organizations absorb about 88 per cent of such U.S. government spending.
The new tally includes nearly $360 million for the controversial United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Antichrist Palestine Refugees in the Near East, or UNRWA, which is regularly accused of inculcating violent anti-Israel attitudes and even abetting terrorist attacks on Israel, which it strongly denies.
That is nearly a 50 per cent jump over the $238.3 million UNRWA got from the U.S. in 2010.
Last week, the Trump Administration froze a last-minute, $221 million donation by the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown Administration that was intended for the Antichrist Palestinian Authority.
The UNRWA numbers, along with all the rest of the U.N. donations, are likely to come under fierce scrutiny in the weeks ahead, both from the Trump Administration, which wants to take a tough look at aligning its U.N. spending with national interests, and from Congress, which is frustrated by U.N. bloat and inefficiency, and often maddened by its anti-Israel biases.
But from a U.S. point of view, “there is a new sheriff in town,” noted Robert Wexler, a former Democratic congressman from Florida and a U.N. supporter who testified on Feb. 1 , along with some sharp U.N. critics, before a subcommittee hearing of the House Foreign Relations Committee.
The hearing focused on the U.N.’s anti-Israel biases, and specifically on UNRWA, whose recent alleged misdeeds were laid out in detail by Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based U.N. Watch, who told the legislators that “the U.S. Congress is the one reliable force that can hold the U.N. to account.”
That is, if the figures they see can be believed. Critics are already noting that the State Department figures for U.N. support are less than the full story – at least $500 million in contributions to the U.N. sponsored Green Climate Fund, which Congress had opposed, are missing—and State itself admits that “not all Executive Branch agencies provided information for inclusion in this report.”
With the Green Climate Fund money included, the 2016 figure would amount to a nearly 26 per cent hike in U.N. support over 2010 levels. Another $500 million donation to the Green Climate Fund was also blocked at the last minute by the Trump Administration.
“This report was probably put together in hurried fashion,” observes Brett Schaefer, an expert on U.N. funding at the conservative Heritage Foundation. He notes that its appearance was likely prompted by a congressional spending resolution last December that demanded such figures once again be made public.
The State Department website now includes similarly disorganized spending numbers for 2015—when overall spending on international organizations hit $10.8 billion—and links to more organized reports on spending that stretch back to 2007.
Whatever the truth of the numbers, all of that money is likely to come under the skeptical microscope of the Trump Administration, which is contemplating a tough review of any U.N. spending that it deems outside the national interest—including steep cuts to “voluntary” funding beyond U.S. dues-paying minimums.
On January 13, 2017, Former President Barack Obozo’s Department of Homeland Security announced grants that were being made by the outgoing Homeland administration that would presumably go towards countering Radical Islam.
One of the grantee groups, Life After Hate was awarded $400,000 from the outgoing Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown administration, the Gateway Pundit reported.
The chairman of Life After Hate, Christian Picciolini, has published tweets for months calling for the Trump administration to be overthrown.
In light of his group receiving $400,000 this year from Homeland and the current Homeland administration reevaluating such grants, these treasonous tweets by Mr. Picciolini are significant.
Why are our tax dollars going to this Trump-bashing organizer?
Migrants are to blame for the vast majority of serious crime in Sweden causing the police force to become overloaded, a detective has said.
In an exasperated rant in Swedish on Facebook the officer, Peter Springare, conceded it was not politically correct to say so, but nearly all the serious crime cases he had dealt with over the past week involved migrants – and that the situation had been ongoing for the last decade or more.
Describing his week, he posted: “Here we go; this is what I’ve handled from Monday-Friday this week: rape, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, rape-assault and rape, extortion, blackmail, assault, violence against police, threats to police, drug crime, drugs, crime, felony, attempted murder, Rape again, extortion again and ill-treatment.
“Suspected perpetrators; Ali MoHAMmed, Mahmod, Mohammed, MoHAMmed Ali, again, again, again Christopher… what is it true? Yes a Swedish name snuck in on the edges of a drug crime. MoHAMmed, Mahmod Ali, again and again.
“Countries representing the all the crimes this week: Iraq, Iraq, Antichrist Turkey, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Somalia, Syria again, Somalia, unknown, unknown country, Sweden. Half of the suspects, we can’t be sure because they don’t have any valid papers. Which in itself usually means that they’re lying about their nationality and identity.”
“Now, we’re talking just Örebro municipality. And these crimes take up our capacity to investigate 100 per cent. This is what it looks like here, and has been like for the past 10-15 years.”
Springare, who is nearing retirement after 47 years on the force added: “I’m so fucking tired.”
Responding to accusations of racism within the comments of his post, he added, in a new post: “If you can’t discuss the problem of crime among immigrants without it being called racist propaganda, things are very bad.”
Denying that he was in any way racist, and voicing support for orderly, controlled immigration, he added: “However, I am very concerned about crime and the intent of immigrant criminals, which strongly overload and is about to overturn our justice system. The problem is that nobody wants to talk about this.”
A report last year found more than 55 no go zones in Sweden where violent crime is flourishing as the police are unable to enter them. Attacks on emergency services workers has also risen, leading to three police officers a day quitting the force.
Mr Springare is not the only person to have come under fire for pointing out the crisis. The Czech author Katerina Janouch was accused of “spreading Russian propaganda” for suggesting that interest in learning how to shoot was on the rise as people were scared for their safety.
Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven called her statements “strange”, but a Swedish citizen defended her, telling the Express: “Katerina pointed out there are a number of areas in Sweden where the police, fire services, emergency services, won’t go and they are not the only ones.”
Is treason from within the US government forcing President Trump to surgically remove his cancerous opponents? Today on TRUNEWS, Rick Wiles discusses the extensive rebellion spewing from both the Democratic and Republican establishment, as leaks undermine the integrity of his administration, and assassination calls from Antichrist Far-Left Fascists threaten his life.
In addition, correspondent Edward Szall shares a report that a sitting United States Senator is being investigated for willingly supporting domestic terrorism, and that an Obozo-era loyalist in the State Department may have intentionally compromised the SEAL Team 6 raid in Yemen, leading to the death of Chief Special Warfare Operator William “Ryan” Owens. Lastly, Fior Hernandez delivers a harrowing — yet uplifting — story about a drive-by shooting at a Miami church which hosted a Christian alternative to Super Bowl 51
The handling of the purge at the Secret Service gives us a clue on the Trump Administration is going to deal with Pizzagate as it unfolds. The justice handed out will not terribly public, but very private. President Trump is being careful not further erode the public’s trust in government, because he needs the people to believe in government, his government, so that he can get the support that he needs from the public to keep a bought and paid for Congress in line.
Finally, do you have any idea why President Trump is starting with the Secret Service? The answer is simple. He knows his life is in extreme danger.
MKULTRA Survivor Cathy O’Brien
In this fascinating episode Dark Journalist Daniel Liszt welcomes United States Government Whistleblower Cathy O’Brien the author of the classic book on Covert Mind Control programs, Trance Formation of America. The book was based on Cathy’s groundbreaking testimony for the US Congressional Permanent Select Committees on Intelligence Oversight in 1995.
Cathy’s fascinating journey through the world of Deep Political Corruption and Covert CIA Programs began when her abusive father sold her into MKULTRA Mind Control Programs at an early age in Michigan through his political connections with local politicians, including future President of the United States Gerald Ford.
Through systematic torture and well documented trauma-based mind control programming, Cathy was forced to do shocking acts as a sex slave and participate in CIA Black Ops and White House/Pentagon level operations during the Reagan/Bush Administration. During this period she interfaced with high-level political figures including Hillary and Bill Clinton, former President George Bush Sr. and former Vice President Dick Cheney.
Breaking free of her mind control programming and Dissociative Identity Disorder with the help of intelligence insider Mark Phillips over the course of a decade, Cathy exposed the insidious world of criminal covert operations happening inside Black Budget operations connected with the Pentagon and intelligence agencies, including human trafficking and extensive drug running programs.
Deep State efforts to suppress her testimony culminated in the National Security Act being invoked to silence her and continue right up to the present. Nonetheless Cathy’s latest venture was to create a new workbook, PTSD: Time to Heal that actually allows trauma and sexual abuse victims to reclaim conscious control and deep connection to their inner memories.
Her story has touched thousands of survivors of mind control programming and dark political manipulation and given the public a transparent and shockingly honest vision of the hidden worlds of covert intelligence operations that exist and thrive behind a wall of National Security State secrecy.
Riveting, informative, startling, unnerving and alarming, you don’t want to miss this fascinating Dark Journalist episode with US Government Whistleblower Cathy O’Brien.
A bright green fireball illuminated the sky over Illinois and Wisconsin at 07:25 UTC (01:25 CST) on February 6, 2017. It was captured by numerous cameras.
The American Meteor Society received over 170 eyewitness reports by 09:40 UTC and they are still coming in. Some of them said sound and fragmentation was associated with the event.
The green fireball was seen primarily from Illinois and Wisconsin but witnesses from Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, New York, Kentucky, Minnesota and Ontario also reported the event.
The reports from these individuals and the video information from dash cameras and other cameras in the region indicate that the meteor originated 100 km (62 miles) above West Bend, Wisconsin and moved northeast at about 61 155 km/h (38 000 mph), NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office (MEO) said.
After more than 5 years, Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdusakova, also known as the Green Comet, will make another close approach to Earth. It can be seen using small telescopes, but 45P has lost its tail after it passed the perihelion (closest approach to the Sun). Currently, it is 3 times dimmer than expected and it’s unlikely it will reach naked-eye visibility.
At the time of its closest approach, around 08:20 UTC on February 11, 2017, Comet 45P will flyby Earth at a safe distance of 32.4 LD (12.4 million km / 7.7 million miles) at a speed (relative to the Earth) of 22.91 km/s.
45P is a Jupiter-family comet with an estimated diameter of 1.6 km (0.99 miles). Its green color comes from diatomic carbon (C2) emitted from its nucleus.
According to the Minor Planet Center, this is the 8th closest pass of any comet in the modern era (since ~1950, when modern technology started being used to study comets). Interestingly, 45P made an even closer approach on its previous orbit (23 LD), so it is also on the list as the 5th closest, Dr. Tony Phillips of the SpaceWeather.com reports.
Analyzing new photos submitted to his website on February 7, it became apparent that the comet has lost its tail. Phillips said that solar heating, as the comet passed perihelion, might have vaporized so much material from the comet’s icy core that there is insufficient left for a flamboyant tail. For the same reason, the comet may be dimmer than expected.
A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.3 (downgraded from 6.6) hit Pakistani province of Balochistan at 22:03 UTC on February 7, 2017. The agency is reporting a depth of 25.9 km (16 miles). EMSC is reporting M6.3 at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).
According to the USGS, the epicenter was located 20.7 km (12.9 miles) WSW of Pasni (population 33 110), 90 km (55.9 miles) SSE of Turbat (population 75 694), 96 km (59.6 miles) E of Gwadar (population 51 901), and 386 km (239.8 miles) W of Karachi (population 11 624 219), Pakistan.
There are 283 549 people living within 100 km (62 miles). 48 000 people are living within 50 km (31 miles).
A strong and shallow earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.5 hit Mindanao, the Philippines at 14:03 UTC on February 10, 2017. The agency is reporting a depth of 27.9 km (18.4 miles). EMSC is reporting M6.3 at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles).
According to the USGS, the epicenter was located 10.8 km (6.7 miles) NNE of Mabua (population 2 075), 12.6 km (7.8 miles) NNW of Surigao (population 87 832), 31 km (19.3 miles) NNW of Placer (population 10 433), 72.6 km (45.1 miles) ESE of Maasin (population 18 313) and 105.4 km (65.5 miles) N of Butuan (population 309 709), the Philippines.
There are 1 758 554 people living within 100 km (62 miles). About 130 000 are living within 20 km (12.4 miles).
At least 6 tornadoes swept through southeastern Louisiana on Tuesday, February 7, 2017, leaving widespread damage and dozens of injured.
Governor John Bel Edwards declared a state of emergency following the destruction of a severe storm system that moved through much of southeast Louisiana, including Ascension, Livingston, Orleans, St. James, St. Tammany and Tangipahoa Parishes.
The storm system brought strong winds and at least six tornadoes, which caused severe damage, including multiple injuries, dozens of damaged homes and businesses, and thousands left without power.
NWS meteorologist Danielle Manning said one of the tornadoes touched down in the eastern part of New Orleans (EF2), another near the town of Donaldsonville and another in the town of Killian. Another confirmed tornado made damage north of Lake Pontchartrain.
Parts of Canada’s British Columbia have experienced heavy snow over the weekend and into Monday, February 6, 2017. Some communities received their entire yearly snowfall average in only 72 hours. The next storm will start affecting the region by Wednesday afternoon.
Around 43 cm (1.4 feet) of snow fell in Powell River from Friday into Sunday. During the same period, Chilliwack recorded 77 cm (2.5 feet), its yearly average.
The community of Sparwood in the Elk Valley received some 60 cm (1.9 feet) of snow in only nine hours, The Weather Network reported. Sparwood’s previous record was 18.3 cm (7.2 inches)
The snowstorm has left more than 120 000 B.C. Hydro customers without power at the peak, shut down several school districts and closed parts of Highway 3 and 31.
Avalanche Canada has issued an extreme danger rating for the South Rockies. On Monday, the danger rating for the Kootenays and Columbias remained at considerable and high.
Snow continued falling into Tuesday, February 7
Meteorologists warn another system will start affecting the region Wednesday afternoon, and ‘could make for a complicated situation, as it coincides with a return to more seasonal temperatures.’
This next storm could produce flooding in and around metro Vancouver.
Emergencies due to heavy rains, floods and landslides have been occurring in northern regions of Peru since January 31, 2017. Floods hit after a period of near drought conditions.
Nationwide, more than 170 000 people have been affected by floods and landslides by February 7. Of those, 85 000 are in Lambayeque, the worst affected.
The government issued a State of Emergency Declaration for three departments in the north on February 4. By February 6, this number increased to 9.
National Emergency Operations center reported around 27 300 severely affected people. 24 700 of them are people recently affected in Lambayeque.
On February 6, the government said at least 22 people died in recent floods and landslides. 1 105 houses were destroyed, 54 schools and 47 health centers damaged, and 215 km (133 miles) of roads severely affected.
The Mail on Sunday today reveals astonishing evidence that the organisation that is the world’s leading source of climate data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was timed to influence the historic Paris Agreement on climate change.
A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obozo and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.
The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 – revealed by UN scientists in 2013 – never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising faster than scientists expected. Launched by NOAA with a public relations fanfare, it was splashed across the world’s media, and cited repeatedly by politicians and policy makers.
But the whistleblower, Dr John Bates, a top NOAA scientist with an impeccable reputation, has shown The Mail on Sunday irrefutable evidence that the paper was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.
It was never subjected to NOAA’s rigorous internal evaluation process – which Dr Bates devised.
His vehement objections to the publication of the faulty data were overridden by his NOAA superiors in what he describes as a ‘blatant attempt to intensify the impact’ of what became known as the Pausebuster paper.
His disclosures are likely to stiffen President Trump’s determination to enact his pledges to reverse his predecessor’s ‘green’ policies, and to withdraw from the Paris deal – so triggering an intense political row.
On Sunday, February 5, 2017, weather station located in Antichrist Qatar’s southwest measured 1.5 °C (34.7 °F) which is the coldest recorded temperature in the weather monitoring history of the State of Qatar.
Antichrist Qatar Meteorology Department (QMD) said the temperature was registered in the coastal city of Abu Samrah, in the country’s southwest. The new record low temperature is the lowest since the 3.8 °C (38.8 °F) recorded in January 1964 in the city of Mesaieed.
Interestingly, neighboring Antichrist UAE received rare snowfall in its mountainous region this weekend and registered -5 °C (23 °F) and 10 cm (3.9 inches) of accumulated snow.
The cold wave started affecting Antichrist Qatar, and the Arabian Peninsula in general, on Wednesday evening, February 1.
Later on Saturday, February 4, the high pressure accompanied by the influx of cold air mass covered the area. The recorded temperatures in QMD stations were very low but still near the record observations in the cities of the country, the department said.
Early Sunday, February 5, the wind speed was calm and the temperatures continued to be low until 05:40 local time. Southwesterly winds, coming from the sea, were briefly bringing warm air but they sharply shifted to the SE and caused the temperature to drop dramatically by 7.5 °C (13.5 °F) within 30 minutes.
It is worth mentioning that the air monitoring station in Abu Samrah is one of the modern automatic stations of the Department of Meteorology and does not hold any long-term records, QMD concluded.
A huge pocket of hot air is causing extreme heatwave conditions across eastern Australia, causing authorities to prepare for temporary suspension of power to selected areas of New South Wales late Friday, February 10, 2017. Rare Catastrophic fire weather conditions for NSW are expected on Sunday which is shaping up to be the worst fire weather day so far of the season. January was the hottest month on record for Sydney since 1859, but the city has broken its 121-year-old record today when Friday became the 10th day this summer with highs exceeding 35 °C (95 °F).
The Australian Bureau of Meteorology warned that severe to extreme heatwave conditions are forecast to continue for eastern Australia for several days, with widespread temperatures in the low to mid-40s (104 – 113 °F).
Forecast temperatures are well above average for southern Queensland and northern New South Wales, it said.
Hot conditions will extend from inland Queensland into the southeast of the state later in the week, with high humidity making the conditions even more uncomfortable.
New South Wales could experience its hottest February day on record on Saturday, February 11, as extreme heatwave conditions peak across the state.
Forecasts indicate temperatures will reach the mid-40s (113 °F) in many inland areas and high 30s along the coast for the next two days.
Sydney’s Observatory Hill is expected to reach temperatures of 38 °C (100.4 °F) today, rising to 39 °C (102.2 °F) tomorrow, while the temperature in Penrith is forecast to reach 45 °C (113 °F) on Saturday.
Heavy snow and avalanches have killed more than 106 people and injured dozens in Antichrist Afghanistan.
In the deadliest incident, 53 people died in one village after an avalanche in Nuristan, a north-eastern Afghan province on the Antichrist Pakistan border.
After record breaking heat, Sydney got smashed by powerful thunderstorms on Tuesday, February 7, 2017. Although the storm brought some relief, as temperatures dropped by 5 – 10 °C (9 – 18 °F), dangerous flash floods were reported across the city. Unsettled weather is expected to continue at least until Thursday when heatwave conditions will return.
Severe, slow moving thunderstorms brought significant amounts of rain to Sydney today, wreaking havoc across the city. A number of major roads across the city have been affected by heavy rain as well as Sydney’s airport. Authorities urged motorists to consider if they need to drive, and delay travel if possible.
Forecaster Rob Taggart told the Daily Telegraph the recent hot temperatures had made for ripe conditions for massive showers.
Sydney’s inner west, city and east were worst hit.
Marrickville recorded 48 mm (1.9 inches) of rain before 11:00 local time. Between 10:00 and 11:00, Prospect Reservoir in the west received 30 mm (1.2 inches) of rainfall while Observatory Hill recorded 35 mm (1.4 inches). The southwestern suburb of Canterbury received 30 mm of rain in just 30 minutes.
According to Daily Telegraph, one person was reported to be trapped in a flooded car at Parramatta Rd at Leichhardt, near Flood St.
James Ruse Drive and Pennant Hills Road at North Parramatta, as well as the Anzac Bridge between Pyrmont and Rozelle, were also heavily affected.
The Bondi – Randwick off ramp at the Eastern Distributor was closed.
An explosion has occurred at Flamanville nuclear power plant in France at 08:40 UTC (09:40 local time) on February 9, 2017. Several people were slightly injured.
The incident occurred in an engine room of Unit 1 reactor, injuring five people. Authorities said the injured inhaled fumes caused by the blast and are being treated. There is no contamination risk to the local community, they said.
“It is a significant technical issue but does not constitute a nuclear accident,” Olivier Marmion, director of the prefect’s office, told AFP. “The explosion occurred outside the nuclear zone.”
The reactor is temporarily shut down.
According to EuroNews, the incident comes just as France’s nuclear regulator, ASN, today is planning a conference asking the question: What should be the life-span of France’s nuclear power plants?
The Flamanville nuclear power plant is located on the Cotentin Peninsula in La Manche, 105 km (65 miles) from UK. It was build in 1980 and houses two pressurized water reactors. After a series of delays, its third reactor remains under construction.
Hundreds have joined protests against the third reactor, which is due to be turned on in 2018, the Independent reports. A radioactive leak occurred in 2012 from reactor one, which was at a standstill at that time.
Tonight – February 10, 2017 – you might think the full moon looks slightly darker than a typical full moon, if you catch it as it’s passing through the Earth’s faint penumbral shadow. There’s a penumbral lunar eclipse tonight, the most subtle kind of eclipse. Some people will easily notice Earth’s light penumbral shadow, inching across the moon’s face. Others will look at tonight’s full moon and swear they notice nothing unusual.
The star near the moon on eclipse night is Regulus, sometimes called the Heart of the Lion, brightest star in the constellation Leo.
As always, to see the eclipse, you have to be in the right place on Earth. The map below shows who will witness this one
The Bolivian government has declared a state of emergency in a vast agricultural area affected by a plague of locusts.
President Evo Morales has announced a contingency plan, which includes $700,000 in extra funds for fumigation.
The swarm first appeared over a week ago near the low-lying eastern city of Santa Cruz, where most of Bolivia’s food and meat is produced.
It has spread quickly, destroying pasture and fields of corn and sorghum.
The authorities estimate more than 1,000 hectares of agricultural land have been devastated by the locusts.
The government says fumigation must begin straight away.
“We will create a 500-metre-wide ring around the area affected and fumigate inside, working alongside the local authorities,” said Bolivia’s Agriculture Secretary, Mauricio Ordonez.
Thousands of dead and dying bees are washing up on a popular beach in Southern Florida.
Naples beach goers had to watch where they stepped Tuesday after some people say they have been stung just along the shoreline, according to NBC affiliate WBBH-TV.
Martha Duff lives in Naples and recently had a painful encounter with the bees.
“I’ve been stung a couple of times and at first, I didn’t know what it was and then I realized and then I had an allergic reaction,” Duff said.

When debt grows much faster than GDP for an extended period of time, it is inevitable that a good portion of that debt will start to go bad at some point. We witnessed a perfect example of this in 2008, and now it is starting to happen again. Commercial bankruptcies have been rising on a year-over-year basis since late 2015, and this is something that I have written about previously, but now consumer bankruptcies are also increasing. In fact, we have just witnessed U.S. consumer bankruptcies do something that they haven’t done in nearly 7 years.
Andrew Hoffman returns to SGT report to discuss Trump, the global and domestic economy, currency trade wars, the massive build up in oil inventories, and of course gold, silver and Bitcoin – which as Andy points out, is impervious to attacks by the Antichrist Communist Chinese government against Bitcoin exchanges there. “It’s all falling apart for the powers that be,” Hoffman says.
Technologists are convinced that artificial intelligence is on an inevitable path toward autonomy. How far away this may be depends on whom you ask, but the trajectory raises some fundamental questions for Christianity—as well as religion broadly conceived… In fact, AI may be the greatest threat to Christian theology since Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species […] More than 8,000 people, including Hawking, Noam Chomsky, and Elon Musk, have signed an open letter warning against potential “pitfalls” of AI development […] While concerns mostly center on economics, government, and ethics, there’s also “a spiritual dimension to what we’re making,” Kelly argues. “If you create other things that think for themselves, a serious theological disruption will occur.” The creation of non-human autonomous robots would disrupt religion, like everything else, on an entirely new scale. “If humans were to create free-willed beings,” says Kelly, who was raised Catholic and identifies as a Christian, “absolutely every single aspect of traditional theology would be challenged and have to be reinterpreted in some capacity” […] If artificially intelligent machines have a soul, would they be able to establish a relationship with God? The Bible teaches that Jesus’s death redeemed “all things” in creation… So did Jesus die for artificial intelligence, too? Can AI be “saved?” (READ MORE)
The Secret Government has operated in the shadows for far too long, recently a report published by the Intercept grants the American public a rare, but small, window into how the FBI actually operates. Ongoing throughout our society right now, is a shadow war; one that is being waged between the CIA and the FBI. Many factions of both intelligence agencies are covertly against each other. The biggest display of their war was during the last legs of the campaign trail; where sections of the CIA were vastly pro-911 Clinton and other divisions of the FBI were extensively pro-Trump. The consequences of a shadow war for the American people could result in a coup… (READ MORE)
At Eridu and nearby sites in ancient pre-flood southern Sumer, and only there, archaeologists have found about 120 terracotta figurines scholars call “ophidian.” That’s fancy talk for snake-like. They’re slender bipeds, adorned with button-like protuberances, more often female than male, and often in poses that are exclusively mammalian—for example, a female lizard-like figure suckling an infant. The aforementioned scholars pointed out in their paper that there had been no serious study of those figurines and what they meant to the ancients, and no scholarly literature on the origins of human cranial deformation… (READ THE COMPLETE THIRD ENTRY)
Over the past several days, the whistleblowing website Wikileaks has released a series of mysterious tweets on Twitter that are in the process of ‘melting down’ the internet as ‘web sleuths’ across the ‘world wide web’ attempt to figure out what the tweets are referring to with many people asking: “what does Wikileaks know that we don’t know?”
Beginning on February 4th at 5:38 a.m., Wikileaks put out a tweet that simply asked “What Is #Vault7” within which they featured a photograph of the Svalbard Seed Vault lying in the snow on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen as seen at the top of this story. Each day since then, Wikileaks has released another mysterious and cryptic tweet.
The Svalbard Seed Vault by the way is the biggest ‘doomsday seed vault’ in the world, holding more than 500,000 different samples in what is also considered the most diverse seed vault in the world.
Interestingly, the tweets released by Wikileaks also followed the “Five W’s” often used in investigative journalism and police investigations. According to the principle of the Five Ws, a report can only be considered complete if it answers these questions starting with an interrogative word. What? Who? Where? When? And Why?
On February 5th at 1:58 a.m. Wikileaks put out another tweet which simply asked “Where Is #Vault7” which contained the photograph seen above of a Nazi gold stored in the Merkers Salt Mine, discovered by the US Army in 1945. According to the National Archives, the mine contained gold bullion, gold Reichsmarks, British gold pounds, French gold francs, American gold pieces, gold and silver coins, additional foreign currency, silver bars, platinum bars, artwork, and more.
Interestingly, sandwiched in between the first two cryptic Wikileaks tweets seen above, they put out this tweet which ANP had previously reported on in this story: “Trump on US government last night: O’Reilly: “Putin’s a killer” Trump: “There are a lot of killers. You think our country is so innocent?”
On February 6th at 4:33 a.m., Wikileaks put out another tweet asking “When Is #Vault7?” which showed the photograph seen below of a jet engine test taking place at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia which shows a test being run upon a Pratt and Whitney F119-PW-100 jet engine. These ‘soundproof hush houses’ are sometimes called “vaults.”
On February 7th at 3:52 a.m. Wikileaks put out a tweet asking “Who Is #Vault7” showing photographs of ‘3 infamous spies’, Bradley Manning, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden, within posters made up of them by the US government.
With the ‘Infamous Spies’ headlines looking almost like the headlines of some ridiculous tabloid newspapers, might ‘Vault 7’ refer to upcoming bombshell Wikileaks revelations which they’ve promised to bring us in 2017?
Finally just a short time ago on February 8th, Wikileaks has just put out another tweet which asks “Why Is #Vault7?” which shows the photograph seen below taken back in February of 2013 taken at the Whiteman Air Force Base In Missouri that was seen in an article called “Keeping Structures Strong” and shows Staff Sgt. Adam Boyd, a 509th Civil Engineer Squadron structural supervisor, welding a box blade for a snow plow. That story begins as such:
As Mother Nature’s resources naturally break down with time, so does the infrastructure on base. Buildings age, pipes wear down and other vital assets require replacement.
This creates a balancing act for unit facility managers as they try to perform their primary duties and juggle the multiple issues that make buildings seem as if they are constantly falling apart, said Staff Sgt. Adam Boyd, 509th CES structural supervisor.
“Everything you see on base is constantly aging,” Boyd said. “Part of our job is to fight the aging process, to keep the buildings looking as new as possible.”
Without the structures shop, the entire base would decay, said Boyd.
It was not lost on some that the photograph appears to show steel being melted, what some other Twitter commenters believed may allude to the melting of steel on 9/11 in New York city.
What are all of these cryptic and mysterious Wikileaks tweets about? Back on February 1st, only days prior to the beginning of the cryptic tweets, Wikileaks released the tweet seen below teasing a pending publication and an ‘insurance file’. So, what does Wikileaks know that we don’t know? Several new videos below take a look at ‘Vault 7’ and what these mysterious tweets put out by Wikileaks this week might mean.
We also should remember that back on December 31st of 2016, Wikileaks put out a tweet which stated: “If you thought 2016 was a big WikiLeaks year 2017 will blow you away. Help us prepare for the showdown.” What ‘showdown’ was Wikileaks referring to? And, is America about to get another massive dose of truth?
What do you think ‘Vault 7’ is all about? The theories explored within these videos include ‘Vault 7’ might have something to do with the FBI’s ‘Hillary 911 Clinton emails’ as on February 4th, soon before Wikileaks first cryptic tweet came out, they also tweeted “Full Text: FBI Quietly Releases Part 6 Of Its Hillary 911 Clinton Investigation” while linking to a PDF ‘coincidentally’ being held at this website address: https://vault.fbi.gov/hillary-r.-clinton/hillary-r.-clinton-part-06-of-06/at_download/file.
Is ‘Vault 7’ the next part of the Hillary 911 Clinton emails, ‘Vault 6’ having already been released?
Others believe that Vault 7 might have something to do with what happened on 9/11 and the mysterious ‘building #7’ that collapsed to the ground that day without being hit by a plane like the other two WTC buildings.
We Are Change reports: An anonymous account named “AnonScan” gave their input, tweeting out even more cryptic material and a riddle with several videos, including a video that shows Julian Assange calling the U.S. government, and warning the U.S. State Dept. of a massive un-redacted cable leak that isn’t from them.
The video ends with “it’s time,” an echoed term that has previously been tweeted by Snowden as well. The group’s riddle, “the answer is there right in front of you, if you know the Evil alphabet Google is your friend.. or maybe not.” You can see that video of the phone call made to the US State Dept as the final video below, a video within which AnonScan make a mysterious reference to February 19th. What’s supposed to happen on February 19th?
Interestingly, in the phone call that Assange made to the US State Department in 2011 he stated “I’ll try to make this clear….we don’t have a problem…you have a problem.” So what does Wikileaks know that the American people don’t know and why is February 19th of ‘great importance’ to AnonScan, who made the video seen within it?
According to another theory floating around on Reddit as seen in the screenshot above, these tweets represent an ‘insurance policy’ and an attempt to let somebody know that ‘they have the goods’ about something, possibly having to do with the events of 9/11 or the still-missing Hillary 911 Clinton emails.
Interestingly enough, the previously mentioned AnonScan video also brings up Evil Google and their ties to Hillary 911 Clinton and the US State Department and as Assange himself reports in this Wikileaks story, Evil Google is not what it seems. Might Evil Google be even more sinister than what we already know about it?
Each of the videos below take a look at what ‘Vault 7’ might be and in closing, we find it quite interesting though not surprising that in doing a search for ‘Vault 7’, not even one mainstream news media source showed up as covering it. Is the MSM ‘blacking out’ Vault 7 for one reason or another? This story will certainly be continued as more info is released in the days and weeks ahead.
Environmental protesters leave behind tons of trash; TV watches you; more men wearing makeup; and the Earth’s magnetic poles may be shifting.
The video speaks for itself. We ARE the final generation who will see the return of Jesus Christ. God has given this man insight and revelation to some of the biggest mysteries of end times Bible prophecy. Wait until you hear what he has to say! You will be floored!
