ACTION ALERT HIGH PRIORITY – NEW FED REG PROPOSAL TO FORCIBLY VACCINATE ENTIRE CITIES

Re-growing damaged bone could become a standard practice in the future, thanks to a new technique involving nothing more than stem cells and a single molecule that naturally occurs in the human body.

Scientists from the University of California San Diego have discovered that by feeding the molecule adenosine to human pluripotent stem cells, they could make them regenerate bone tissue.

STEM CELLS BREAKTHROUGH: SCIENTISTS RE-GROW BONE WITH A SINGLE MOLECULE,thanks to a new technique involving nothing more than stem cells and a single molecule that naturally occurs in the human body.

The research has already been successfully demonstrated in mice, and could in the future lead to a quick and affordable treatment for bone defects and injuries, a key aspect of the scientists’ research.

“One of the broader goals of our research is to make regenerative treatments more accessible and clinically relevant by developing easy, efficient and cost-effective ways to engineer human cells and tissues,” explained study lead author Shyni Varghese, a bioneering professor at UC San Diego.

Retired Green Beret Warns: “World Governments Are Preparing For Disaster And War”

This is not your government. Those who live in the United States do so out of convenience, it is where their house is, their apartment, etc., but they do not live under the authority of the United States Government, because that does not exist. Those who reside within the borders of the United States live under a despotic rule of Supreme Court justices, regulators, random judges, presidential decree and Fed policy.

This Is Not Your Government

Government employees in the United States outnumber manufacturing employees by 9,932,000, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Federal, state and local government employed 22,213,000 people in August, while the manufacturing sector employed 12,281,000.

Government Workers Now Outnumber Manufacturing Workers by 9,932,000

The BLS has published seasonally-adjusted month-by-month employment data for both government and manufacturing going back to 1939. For half a century—from January 1939 through July 1989—manufacturing employment always exceeded government employment in the United States, according to these numbers.

Then, in August 1989, the seasonally-adjusted employment numbers for government exceeded the employment numbers for manufacturing for the first time. That month, manufacturing employed 17,964,000 and government employed 17,989,000.

Manufacturing employment in the United States had peaked a decade before that in June 1979 at 19,553,000

From August 2015 to August 2016 seasonally-adjusted manufacturing employment declined by 37,000–dropping from 12,318,000 last August to 12,281,000 this August.

The 22,213,000 government employees in August, according to the BLS, included 2,790,000 federal employees, 5,120,000 state government employees, and 14,303,000 local government employees.

How the Fed has screwed the many to benefit the few

By its actions, the Federal Reserve has selected a precious few winners and many, many losers. Sadly, you are highly likely to be one of the losers.

Sorry!

I’m one, too, if that helps soften the blow.

But we have a lot of company. Other losers include:

Savers
Anyone with money in a checking account
Anyone with money in a savings account
Anyone with money in a CD
Anyone depending on bond income
All pensions
Endowments
First time homebuyers
Renters
Those who invest based on fundamentals
Everybody alive in the future, when the bills come due
Anyone on this list has been intentionally pre-selected by the Fed for losing. The Fed has done this deliberately, with full pre-knowledge that it was going to diminish the prospects of the majority in favor of the benefit of an elite few. And to make matters worse, it has no plans to — and no clue how to — reverse the damage it has wrought.

Everyone on the list above has been dinged by the Federal Reserve — on purpose and by design, I will repeat — in order to transfer wealth and purchasing power to:

Big banks
The government
Entities with large stock (equity) holdings
The wealthiest 0.1%
Speculators
Borrowers (the heavier the better)
Well-connected insiders whom the Fed tipped off in advance
This has, of course, not been lost on the 99.9% relegated to the loser camp. They are angry and growing more pissed off by the day. We see this anger playing out politically, in street protests, and in growing tensions with the police. All of this is connected, of course.

Soon, more and more folks will figure out the source of the growing inequity causing this anger, and the hot new trend of the future will be Fed bashing. So you might as well get in on the ground floor…

Sorry Losers!

 

Righteous Anger
As primates, we’re all hard-wired to expect fairness. It’s part of being a social creature. When we experience unfairness, we react the same way this Capuchin monkey does, although we might try to convince ourselves we do so in a more civilized manner:

But really, we’re just as emotionally-driven as that poor, deprived monkey when confronted with our own circumstances of injustice.

While it’s true that the world will never be completely fair, the conditions today are extremely ripe for provoking a lot of righteous populist anger.

Watching big banks commit huge felonies time and again, then get away with only paying fines that are mere blips on their earnings statements, has been difficult for me to swallow — as it was for a large number of other people. The recent movie The Big Short does a good job of making your blood boil on this point.

Or noting all the instances where the wealthy and powerful skate by without any real charges or penalties for their crimes, while ‘regular people’ have the book thrown at them by the legal system.

In fact, the rule of law in America today might as well be restated as the ‘sliding scale rule’, where the number and consequences of possible penalties that apply are inversely proportional to your net worth. Poor = more. Rich = less.

But of all the injustices being inflicted upon us, few are more pernicious than those being committed via the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy.

The Fed is playing God, picking winners and losers. And as I outlined above, nearly all of us are losers.

Housing Losers
In the aftermath of the credit crisis, the Fed has been loudly telling us that if house prices go up then the owners of those houses will feel wealthier and spend more, boosting the economy. Or something like that.

In truth, the Fed has been acting to protect both the mortgage holders (banks, mortgage companies, Fannie, Freddie) and also its own portfolio of mortgage bonds. Few people realize this, but the Fed is the largest landlord in America. It owns more real estate, by far, than any other entity:

Now, would you not agree that if a private entity had been entrusted with the capability of printing money out of thin air and then using it to purchase $1.78 trillion dollars’ worth of mortgage backed securities, thereby becoming the largest landlord in America, that there should have been a robust and spirited national conversation over whether or not this is a good idea? One that came with a truckload of debate, oversight and enforcement?

But there was no conversation. The Fed decided all on its own that driving up the cost of homes was the right thing to do, and they’ve succeeded wildly in that regard. Winners = current homeowners who sell at these current bubble prices and then downsize. Losers = everyone else.

Even many current homeowners who’ve benefited from recent price increases will lose over time. Why? Because of higher insurance and property tax costs.

The housing bubble that preceded 2007 has been restored by the Fed nation-wide, In dozens of cities., prices are now at or near all-time highs:

The impact of these insanely-high house prices is that ordinary people are being priced out. Here’s the extreme case of San Francisco:

The “Housing Crisis” in San Francisco Strangles Demand

Aug 16, 2016

In San Francisco, the median house price – half sell for more, half sell for less – is $1.37 million. According to Paragon Real Estate, if condos were included, the median price would drop to $1.2 million.

The median household income in San Francisco is $84,160, including households with more than one earner. So a household of two teachers with $130,000 in household income is doing pretty well, comparatively speaking.

The monthly mortgage payment for the median house in San Francisco, after a 20% down payment and at the prevailing rock-bottom mortgage rates, is $6,740 per month, or $80,900 per year!

So what kind of minimum qualifying household income would be required for the mortgage of a median house, plus taxes and insurance? For the US on average, $47,200 per year. In San Francisco, $269,600 per year. It would require a household of four teacher salaries!

Only the top-earning 13% of households in San Francisco can afford to buy that median house!

(Source)

To recap: if you put down a 20% down payment for a $250,000 house in San Francisco (good luck saving that up, ordinary people!) then the yearly mortgage cost alone is $80,900.

This affordability problem is so severe that regular people are moving out in droves. As a result, San Francisco is dealing with all sorts of worker shortages, including the lack of teachers mentioned in the above article.

These insanely high house prices are not some miracle of God, and it doesn’t require a PhD in particle physics to understand what’s causing them: the Fed specifically created the conditions to boost house prices to these levels, and has been printing up as much money as needed to accomplish this.

If you enjoy irony with your tragedy, consider the case of the planning commissioner for Palo Alto who had to move out of the area because she and her husband could no longer afford to live there:

Housing official in Silicon Valley resigns because she can’t afford to live there

Aug 11, 2016

Once Kate Downing and her husband Steve did the math, it was obvious that if they wanted to raise a family, staying in Palo Alto, California, was not an option.

Although Steve, 33, works as a software engineer at a nearby Silicon Valley technology company and Kate, 31, is a product attorney at another tech firm, the cost of owning a home near their jobs has simply become too steep for them.

If they wanted to purchase their current house – which they rent with another couple for $6,200 a month total – it would cost $2.7m plus monthly mortgage and tax payments of $12,177, adding up to more than $146,000 a year.

The Downings’ housing struggle in the northern California region that is home to many of the world’s wealthiest tech companies carries a special irony due to Kate’s second job: up until this week, she served as a planning and transportation commissioner for Palo Alto – a position in which she pushed city officials to build more housing and pass pro-development policies that could help solve the growing affordability crisis.

When two upper middle class successful professionals cannot even remotely begin to make ends meet, you have a raging housing bubble on your hands.

I’m going to keep repeating this point: this is no accident. It is not an act of God. This is the desired outcome of a specific and targeted Federal Reserve policy that is getting exactly what it intends: Higher home prices.

As a consequence of these high prices, home ownership rates in the US have plunged to levels not seen since 1965:

Generations of homeownership have been undone in less than ten years by an activist Fed that has decided it knows who should be the winners and who should be the losers in the home buying game.

Of course, all of this is not real, long-lasting wealth. The Fed has merely blown another bubble; one that will eventually burst, creating far more pain on the downside than the pleasure enjoyed on the way up.

That’s just the nature of bubbles, as we laid out in detail in our recent report The Marginal Buyer Holds The Pin That Pops Every Asset Bubble (it’s worth a read if you haven’t done so yet)

It’s too bad the Fed did not learn from its prior recent bad mistakes that blew up in 2000 and 2008. I’ve taken the liberty of expressing this in chart form:

I hope that clears thing up.

There’s no other way to put this, the Federal Reserve is a serial bubble blower. And sadly, the Fed is the alpha central bank in the world. It sets both the tone and the direction that the others follow. Which is why the bubbles in stocks, bonds and real estate span the globe today.

The Fed somehow lost the institutional memory that Paul Volker embodied back in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Volker’s bitter medicine approach was replaced with a spiked punchbowl. Greenspan began the process, Bernanke cemented it, and now Yellen is busy keeping the party going long after the lights should have been turned off.

The Fed may never recover from the injustice it is creating. And good riddance. When institutions fail so horribly they need to be disbanded and discredited so that new ideas and practices can emerge.

And interestingly, we are (finally!) beginning to see some rotten tomatoes get thrown the Fed’s way.

Is a ‘Fed discrediting cycle’ underway? Surprisingly, the answer may be: Yes.

The Worm Turns
The reason we need to track the ‘intangibles’ like Fed credibility is precisely because the entire system of fiat money is faith-based, when you get right down to it. We all know that on some level, but it becomes a conscious awareness once you understand how money is created in the fractional reserve banking system.

It’s created when a loan is made at the bank level, as well as whenever the Fed ‘buys an asset’ which is really a fancy way of saying ‘created money out of thin air and exchanged it for debt.’

Well, if the Fed has the power to create money out of thin air, that’s really an extraordinary power, right? How can we have confidence it’s putting that power to the right use?

Because all fiat currency (I hesitate to call it ‘money’ as it lacks the essential ‘store of value’ feature) is nothing more than an agreement between ourselves, it’s vital that trust and transparency be part of that arrangement.

But the current system goes out of its way to keep the public in the dark about how it works.

Even though money (er, currency) creation is a rather simple thing to explain, as I’ve done in the Crash course (Chapter 7: Money creation in Banks and Chapter 8: The Fed), it is not taught in schools. At any level.

In over 10 years of presenting this material publicly, I’ve not yet once run into a single person who has claimed to have learned about money creation in a public school or major college as part of the ordinary curriculum. Not one. Homeschoolers? Yes, all the time. Self-taught? Sure, them too.

Now ask yourself why something so important and yet simple to explain is not taught at practically any ‘place of learning’ throughout the land? The only reason I can think of is that it is considered too dangerous by those in charge.

After all, how can you keep a workforce chained to a paycheck model once they find out that the Fed simply prints up dollars by the trillions and hands them out to their closest friends, relatives, and revolving door colleagues?

Or perhaps we can understand why currency creation is not taught through this old quote from Henry Ford:

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.

(Source)

I think old Henry also nailed it. The privilege and advantages enjoyed by those running our banking and monetary systems functions are deeply unfair. If those in charge of them want to keep their heads, its best to keep the public in the dark as much as possible.

Well, I think the cat’s out of the bag, and I base that on two exceptional recent events. The first was the ill-fated launching of a Fed Facebook page, by the Fed, and the second was a real turnabout article penned in the WSJ by none other than perennial Fed insider/toady John Hilsenrath.

In Part 2: This Is How Sentiment Shifts And Markets Crash, we look at how the previously-bulletproof faith in the Federal Reserve is quickly eroding. As with all belief systems, once sentiment shifts below a critical threshold, everything gets called into question. Suddenly, it’s obvious to all the emperor was naked.

The demise of faith in the Fed is an essential milestone on the way to the long-overdue market correction. Once the markets no longer trust the Fed can keep the party going, the stampede for the exit will one for the history books.

Legend Art Cashin Warns We Are In A Terrifying Cycle, ‘A World Not Seen Before’

“A World Not Seen Before”
Art Cashin: “We’re in a world that not only has no one ever seen before, but in many cases we are doing things that no one ever thought of before. I mean, Sydney Homer’s book The History of Interest Rates covers 5,000 years of interest rates, back to when the Sumerians were trading grain.

5,000 Years Of Interest Rates – Rates Lower Than 1930s Depression

And nowhere (in that book covering 5,000 years) is there any extensive discussion of negative interest rates. And yet there is some $23 trillion or $24 trillion worth of securities that are now involved in negative interest rates. So it is a world not seen before.

The Bank of Japan is busy buying ETFs and in some cases common stocks. There are reports that the largest holder of Facebook may in fact be the Swiss National Bank. This is a world no one ever dreamed of. And it only tells you, with rates as low as they are, should something happen to the economies and/or the financial systems, they will have to resort to crazier and crazier things.

Monetary Madness To Increase
And if you go back to Jackson Hole and look at some of these things, they were putting in the intellectual foundry to go perhaps beyond negative rates, into buying assets never thought of before. So that’s as close they come to concern — knowing that if something happened, the fire truck has flat tires.”

Eric King: “Art, it’s not that we want to create any panic, but as you watch this science experiment — the monetary madness — I know deep down inside you have to have a gut feeling that this is gong to end in disaster.”

Art Cashin: “Well, I try not to have a gut feeling that it’s going to end in disaster, but having gone through the pain and agony of 2008 and 2009, you don’t want to be too cavalier about anything. Again, I don’t believe you or I or anyone else should be starting people on an idea of panic, but we’ve seen how severe some of these things can get, and we have not recovered greatly from them.

And so far the central banks haven’t shown me that they have found a way to A: fully insulate us from a recurrence like that, or B: have the tools to address it were it to occur again. I think the magnitude of what happened, the broad breadth of how many countries, how many banks, how many people, were involved…To continue listening to one of the most important audio interviews ever with legend Art Cashin CLICK HERE

How Special Drawing Rights Will Destroy Economic Sovereignty – The New World Currency

FSS World News Update – Martial Law Declared – The Govt Is Watching – Bird Flu Outbreak – OK EQ

Using radiosonde data from several equatorial locations around the world, the scientists discovered that the quasi-biennial oscillation began to deviate from its usual pattern in late 2015. At that time, westerly winds were descending in altitude and should have continued to sink and weaken as easterlies replaced them.

Instead, the westerly winds shifted upward and seemed to cut off the descent of high-altitude easterlies before they could begin their usual dominance. Additional easterly winds developed at lower altitudes in the stratosphere, beneath the rising westerlies. However, by June, the westerlies appeared to have resumed their normal descent.

Mysterious anomaly interrupts stratospheric wind pattern

The researchers plan to continue analyzing wind and temperature data to determine what caused this anomaly and what its implications may be. Their investigation will include an exploration of possible connections with the 2015–2016 El Niño and climate change. (Geophysical Research Letters, doi:10.1002/2016GL070373, 2016)

A World Without Language Barriers

Note: New device ^^^

The world monetary order is changing. Slowly but steadily, global trade and currency markets are becoming less dollar-centric. Formerly marginal currencies such as the Antichrist Communist Chinese yuan now stand to become serious competitors to U.S. dollar dominance.

Could gold also begin to emerge as a leading currency in world trade? Over time, it certainly could. But the more immediate implications for gold’s monetary role center on its increasing accumulation by central banks such as Antichrist Communist China’s.

On October 1st, the Antichrist Communist Chinese yuan is slated to enter the International Monetary Fund’s Special Drawing Right (SDR) basket of top-tier currencies. It will share SDR status with the U.S. dollar, euro, British pound, and Japanese yen.

Before the yuan officially becomes an SDR currency, the World Bank intends sell $2.8 billion in SDR bonds in Antichrist Communist Chinese markets. The rollout of SDR bonds in Antichrist Communist China began August 31st. According to Reuters, Antichrist Communist China’s promotion of SDR bonds “is part of a wider push in Antichrist Communist China to… boost demand for Antichrist Communist Chinese yuan and diminish reliance on the U.S. dollar in global reserves.”

King Dollar won’t be dethroned overnight. But the place of prominence the U.S. dollar – more accurately called the Federal Reserve Note – enjoys as the world’s reserve currency will indeed diminish over time.

Yuan’s Inclusion in the SDR Currency Basket: Merely a Part of Antichrist Communist China’s De-Dollarization Strategy

Antichrist Communist China and Russia have mutual geostrategic interests in helping to promote de-dollarization. Toward that end, the two powers are engaging in bilateral trade deals that bypass the dollar. Annual bilateral trade between Antichrist Communist China and Russia has surged from $16 billion in 2003 to nearly $100 billion today. When Antichrist Communist China hosts the G20 summit in September, it will make Russian President Vladimir Putz Putin its premier guest of honor.

U.S. officials are none too pleased. They fear Putz Putin aims to expand his global reach by forging stronger ties with Antichrist Communist China.

Putin strengthening ties with Antichrist Communist China

According to the South China Post, “Some Western analysts have viewed the recent, rapid enhancement of such collaboration as the beginning of a partnership set on destabilizing the U.S.-led world order and diminishing Washington’s capacity to influence strategic outcomes.”

Some in the Hillary 911 Clinton campaign even fear that Russia will interfere in the upcoming U.S. election to try to block 911 Hillary’s path to the White House. Russian hackers have been implicated in a number of recent “leaks” that damaged the reputations of U.S. banks and the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown administration. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has hinted at further releases. 911 Hillary’s allies openly speculate that these Wikileaks hacks are being sourced from Russia.

But the Russians and the Antichrist Communist Chinese aren’t counting on cyber warfare to dethrone King Dollar. In addition to bilateral trade deals and strategic plays for regional economic dominance, the two powers are bulking up on gold. Over the past several years, Russia and Antichrist Communist China have each been adding massively to their gold holdings.

World’s Central Banks Becoming Net Gold Buyers

Since 2009, Antichrist Communist China’s officially reported gold holdings have jumped by 60%. The enlarged gold stockpiles held by the People’s Bank of Antichrist Communist  China helped Antichrist Communist China win ascension into the IMF’s elite SDR currency basket.

Antichrist Communist China’s Monetary Ascension Is Paved With Gold

It’s part of a larger trend of world central banks becoming net gold buyers. They were net sellers throughout much of the 1990s and early 2000s. That helped keep gold prices suppressed. But since 2010, central banks have been net buyers of gold – to the tune of more than 500 tons per year

Central Bank Demand for Gold

Russia alone added 172 tons of gold in 2014 and 208 tons in 2015. By swapping some of its U.S. Treasury securities for bullion bars, the Russian central bank has become the world’s seventh largest gold holder. Yet gold makes up just 16.2% of Russia’s monetary reserves, which is a lower proportion held by its Eurozone neighbors.

Russia likely isn’t done accumulating. As the world’s third largest gold producer, Russia can readily supply itself with more.

A similar scenario figures to play out in Antichrist Communist China, perhaps even more dramatically so. Antichrist Communist China’s “official” gold hoard of 1,823 tons as of August 2016 gives it the world’s sixth biggest gold reserve. Yet relative to the size of Antichrist Communist China’s economy and currency supply, its gold stash doesn’t amount to much – just 2.3% of total monetary reserves.

Unofficially, Antichrist Communist China likely has additional gold reserves that it doesn’t report. But even if Antichrist Communist China’s real gold stash is double or triple what it actually reports, as some analysts suggest, that still leaves the country of 1.3 billion people with far less gold backing than Russia, the United States, Europe, and some of its Asian rivals. Antichrist Communist China has a lot more gold accumulating to do in the years ahead.

Antichrist Communist China’s Gold Reserves

Antichrist Communist Chinese leaders aim to be regionally dominant. In order to secure that position they are moving to own and control greater shares of the gold market. The recently opened Shanghai Gold Exchange gives Antichrist Communist China a direct mechanism for controlling the physical gold market in Asia.

It’s a way for Antichrist Communist China to take at least some control away from Western governments and banks that have traditionally dominated the gold trade out of London and New York.

When the Antichrist Communist Chinese yuan becomes an SDR currency this fall, that could be the inflection point for a new multi-polar currency regime that sees the Federal Reserve Note decline in stature as central banks scramble to stock up on the ultimate money: gold.

‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse This Week: How to See It
An annular eclipse on September 1 will blot out the sun for viewers across Africa and Madagascar

NASA astronauts Jeff Williams and Kate Rubins will take a spacewalk Thursday (Sept. 1) starting at about 8:10 a.m. EDT (1200 GMT)

WATCH LIVE NOW: NASA Astronauts Taking Spacewalk Outside Space Station

On Sept. 1, the moon will pass in front of the sun, creating a brilliant ring of sunlight visible from areas around the southern Indian Ocean. Read our full preview: See a ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse Thursday Via Slooh Webcast

When the moon creates a ring of sunlight during an eclipse instead of completely blocking the solar disk, it’s known as an annular eclipse or “ring of fire” eclipse. And although the Sept. 1 event won’t be a total eclipse of the sun (or of the heart), it will still be a stunning sight leading up to another annular eclipse in February 2017 and the total solar eclipse in August 2017.

The best place to view the Sept. 1 annular eclipse will be southern Africa. About a 10-hour drive south of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, observers will find the best views of the eclipse, Pasachoff said. Viewers will be able to see the moon cross paths with the sun on Sept. 1 at 9:08 a.m. local time, which is 2:08 a.m. EDT (0608 GMT)

Solar Eclipse 2016 Guide: When, Where & How to See It

If you can’t make it out to Tanzania this time around, you can track the eclipse from NASA’s interactive Google map or keep up with detailed charts and predictions on sites like Eclipsewise.com.

To get a glimpse of this celestial event, Jay Pasachoff, an astronomer at Williams College in Massachusetts, will be traveling to Réunion, an island east of Madagascar. He’ll also be chasing down February’s annular eclipse in Chile.

“I think only dedicated amateur astronomers will be traveling like this for the annular eclipse,” Pasachoff told Space.com. “It’s fun to do, but it’s not as dramatic [as a total eclipse]. But for the total eclipse, then we would like to encourage everybody to travel to try to get into that path of totality.”

(The path of totality is the region where the moon will appear to completely cover the disk of the sun).

What causes an annular eclipse?

Solar eclipses occur when the moon comes between the Earth and the sun, lining up with the sun as seen by spectators on Earth. In a total solar eclipse, the moon lines up perfectly with the sun and blocks out all light. But in an annular eclipse, the moon doesn’t completely cover the sun; this is possible because the orbits of both the Earth and the moon are elliptical (that is, not perfectly circular).

“Earth’s orbit is a little elliptical, and the moon’s orbit is a little more elliptical, so sometimes, [the moon is] a little further away from us than at other times,” Pasachoff said. “When it’s relatively far away, it’s a little smaller in angle, and it’s too small to cover the whole everyday solar disk.”

As a result, the edges of the solar disk peek out from behind the shadow of the moon, leaving a ring of sunlight.

Every 18 months or so, there is one annular eclipse and one total solar eclipse somewhere on Earth. Eclipses don’t occur every time the moon passes between the Earth and the sun because the moon’s orbit is tilted about 5 degrees compared to the Earth’s orbit around the sun. When the moon’s shadow crosses the sun but its center doesn’t align exactly with the center of the sun, it’s known as a partial solar eclipse — when the moon sits either a little too high or too low to totally cover the sun.

The Sept. 1 eclipse is slated to last for just over 10 minutes, so there’s no need to camp out for a long haul. But just like with any skywatching event, it’s important to take precautions, especially so that you don’t damage your eyes. WARNING: Looking directly at the sun, even during an annular eclipse, can lead to blindness and permanent eye damage if you aren’t wearing proper eye protection.

To safely watch an annular eclipse, you’ll need special protective eyewear or eclipse glasses. Basic sunglasses, even those with UV protection, will not sufficiently protect your eyes. If you’re planning on documenting the eclipse with any photo equipment, there are special solar filters you can add to make sure the remaining ring of sunlight doesn’t take a toll on your vision. (However, Pasachoff suggested that you avoid messing with equipment if you don’t want to miss the spectacle.) The safest way to observe an eclipse is indirectly, using a pinhole camera that can be made easily at home.

“Dedicated amateur astronomers may have telescopes, but what we really recommend for first-time viewers is just to watch,” Pasachoff said. “A total eclipse is such a dazzling event that you really would be better off just enjoying the spectacle rather than busying yourself with camera settings.”

If you must document it, a simple wide-angle snap should capture the moment, even if you’re using your smartphone camera.

When is the next eclipse?

Another annular solar eclipse will occur Feb. 26, 2017, with the point where the eclipse will appear to last the longest located off the eastern coast of South America. The next highly anticipated total solar eclipse, set to take place Aug. 21, 2017, is being called the “Great American Eclipse” because the best viewing locations will be within the continental U.S. For this event, Pasachoff said now is the time to make necessary travel plans and reservations if you want to observe the eclipse within the path of totality.

NASA – Annular Solar Eclipse of 2016 Sep 01

Holidays begin at sundown on the evening of the previous day.
Feast of Trumpets 2016 – October 3rd 4th, 2016

Tonight – September 1, 2016 – Neptune comes closest to Earth for the year. It reaches opposition – when it is most opposite the sun from Earth for this year – on September 2. By closest, we don’t mean close. Neptune lodges in the outskirts of our solar system and at opposition lies 29 times farther away from Earth than Earth lies from our sun.

Neptune is said to be at opposition – opposite the sun in Earth’s sky – whenever our planet Earth in its orbit passes between the sun and Neptune. That’s what’s happening over the next couple of days.

Because we’re more or less between it and the sun around now, Neptune is rising in the east around the time of sunset, climbing highest up for the night around midnight and setting in the west around sunrise.

As viewed from Earth now, this world is in front of the constellation Aquarius the Water Carrier.

Neptune closest for year on September 1

Opposition is a special event. When any planet outside of Earth’s orbit is at or near opposition, Earth comes closest to that planet for the year, and that planet, in turn, shines most brightly in our sky. Even at opposition, however, Neptune, the eighth planet outward from the sun, is not all that close and it’s not all that bright.

In fact, Neptune is the only major solar system planet that’s absolutely not visible to the unaided eye. This world is about five times fainter than the dimmest star that you can see on an inky black night. You’ll need binoculars (at least) and a detailed sky chart to see Neptune in front of the constellation Aquarius.

Even at that, it’ll only look like a faint star. Many sky watchers will find the faint star Lambda Aquarii with the unaided eye and then star-hop to Neptune.

Neptune, the fourth-largest planet, is just a touch smaller than Uranus, the third-largest. You’d have to line up four Earths side by side to equal the diameter of either planet.

Okay, so it’s unlikely you’ll see Neptune unless you have optical aid and a detailed star chart. But there are four other planets in the evening sky now. First, look for the Saturn and Mars, as shown on the chart below.

It’s pretty easy to spot them anytime during the evening hours, that is, from sunset until a few hours later, as seen from around the globe.

Now here are two more planets, which are a little tougher to see because they’re near the sunset. You have to look outside shortly after the sun goes down. On the other hand, Venus and Jupiter are the two brightest planets. Plus the moon is moving past them, beginning on September 2.

Bottom line: On September 1, 2016, the Earth is about to swing in between the sun and Neptune. On this day, Neptune comes closest to Earth and shines at its brightest for the year. Yet … you’ll still need good binoculars on a tripod or a telescope to spot Neptune.

Elite Antichrist Communist North Korean soldiers are being armed with “nuclear backpacks”, a source has claimed as tensions increase over the authoritarian state’s attempts at military escalation.

An anonymous source told Radio Free Asia special units have been formed since March to carry the weapons and had been taking part in simulated training exercises with dummy bombs.

Antichrist Communist North Korea soldiers ‘armed with nuclear backpacks’ as tensions rise over US-South Korean military exercises

“Outstanding soldiers were selected from each reconnaissance platoon and light infantry brigade to form the nuclear backpack unit the size of a battalion,” the source from Antichrist Communist North Hamgyong province was quoted as saying.

The supposed weapons were said to weigh between 10 and 30 kilograms and be able to “spray radioactive material”, possibly uranium, on the enemy.

Obozo Granted Antichrist Iran “Secret” Nuclear Deal Exemptions, Despite Claiming Otherwise

One of the recurring criticisms of Obozo’s landmark Nuclear deal with Antichrist Iran is that in Obozo’s scramble to get a formalized agreement, he had implemented many loopholes allowing Iran substantial leeway far beyond what was disclosed for public consumption. And, in the latest blow to US foreign policy under the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown administration, a new report confirms precisely that. According to Reuters, the United States and its negotiating partners agreed “in secret” to allow Iran to evade some restrictions in last year’s landmark nuclear agreement in order to meet the deadline for it to start getting relief from economic sanctions.

The report is to be published on Thursday by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security, said the think tank’s president David Albright, a former U.N. weapons inspector and co-author of the report. It is based on information provided by several officials of governments involved in the negotiations, who Albright declined to identify.

“The exemptions or loopholes are happening in secret, and it appears that they favor Iran,” Albright said.

Among the exemptions were two that allowed Iran to exceed the deal’s limits on how much low-enriched uranium (LEU) it can keep in its nuclear facilities, the report said. LEU can be purified into highly enriched, weapons-grade uranium. The exemptions, the report said, were approved by the joint commission the deal created to oversee implementation of the accord. The commission is comprised of the United States and its negotiating partners — called the P5+1 — and Iran. One reason for the exemptions is that, according to one senior “knowledgeable” official, if the joint commission had not acted to create these loopholes, some of Antichrist Iran’s nuclear facilities would not have been in compliance with the deal by Jan. 16, the deadline for the beginning of the lifting of sanctions.

Which means Obozo lied: the U.S. administration has said that the world powers that negotiated the accord – the United States, Russia, Antichrist Communist China, Britain, France and Germany – made no secret arrangements. A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the joint commission and its role were “not secret.” He did not address the report’s assertions of exemptions.

What was the significance of the secret loopholes? As Reuters reports it meant that as a result of the process, it would make it impossible to know just how much weapons-grade uranium Antichrist Iran could yield, arguably the biggest sticking point of the entire agreement.

As part of the concessions that allowed Antichrist Iran to exceed uranium limits, the joint commission agreed to exempt unknown quantities of 3.5 percent LEU contained in liquid, solid and sludge wastes stored at Antichrist Iranian nuclear facilities, according to the report. The agreement restricts Antichrist Iran to stockpiling only 300 kg of 3.5 percent LEU.

The commission approved a second exemption for an unknown quantity of near 20 percent LEU in “lab contaminant” that was determined to be unrecoverable, the report said. The nuclear agreement requires Iran to fabricate all such LEU into research reactor fuel.

If the total amount of excess LEU Antichrist Iran possesses is unknown, it is impossible to know how much weapons-grade uranium it could yield, experts said.

Additionally, the deal allowed Antichrist Iran to meet a 130-tonne limit on heavy water produced at its Arak facility by selling its excess stock on the open market. But with no buyer available, the joint commission helped Tehran meet the sanctions relief deadline by allowing it to send 50 tonnes of the material – which can be used in nuclear weapons production – to Oman, where it was stored under Antichrist Iranian control, the report said.

Albright said the exceptions risked setting precedents that Antichrist Iran could use to seek additional waivers. Furthermore, these behind the scenes arrangement with Antichrist Iran have certainly empowered the Tehran regime to believe it has the upper hand in bilateral relations with the west, which may have led to such debacles as Iran arresting US navy crews or encouraging “close encounters” with US ships in the Straits of Hormuz.

Albright served as an inspector with the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team that investigated former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons program. While Albright has neither endorsed nor denounced the overall agreement, he has expressed concern over what he considers potential flaws in the nuclear deal, including the expiration of key limitations on Antichrist Iran’s nuclear work in 10-15 years.

To be sure, it wasn’t just Obozo who kept the details from the public – Congress was likewise complicit. The administration of President Barack Obozo informed Congress of the exemptions on Jan. 16, said the report. Albright said the exemptions, which have not been made public, were detailed in confidential documents sent to Capitol Hill that day – after the exemptions had already been granted.

Still, some deny this was the case: Democratic Senator Bob Menendez, a leading critic of the Antichrist Iran deal and a senior member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told Reuters in an email: “I was not aware nor did I receive any briefing (on the exemptions).”

Reuters conveniently notes that “the report’s assertions are likely to anger critics of the nuclear deal.” It may also boost Trump’s polling, as he has has vowed to renegotiate the agreement if he’s elected, while Democrat Hillary 911 Clinton supports the accord. It is unclear if and how much cash Antichrist Iran or its proxies may have donated to the 911 Clinton foundation.

In Strange Confluence of Events, Antichrist Muslims Will Celebrate Sacrifice of Ishmael on 9/11 This Year

In a very strange set of coincidences, this September 11th may see Antichrist Muslim Americans celebrating their holiest sacrificial festival while the rest of the country mourns one of the most horrific days in United States history.

Like all Antichrist Muslim holidays, the festival of Eid al-Adha, known as Eid, is determined by the Antichrist Muslim calendar, which varies greatly from year to year. The calendar is set in Antichrist Mecca and based on the sighting of the new moon. If the moon is sighted on September first, then Eid, the Antichrist Feast of the Sacrifice, will fall on the anniversary of one of America’s worst terror attacks.

This will be the first time since 9/11 that any Antichrist Muslim holiday falls on the date, raising questions and concerns about how Antichrist Muslims will celebrate on a day of mourning for all other Americans.

The Antichrist holiday of Eid also happens to represent a serious conflict between Antichrist Islam and Judeo-Christian Biblical tradition. It honors Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, a well-established Biblical event, but revises Genesis, putting Ishmael in Isaac’s place.

The Antichrist Koran mentions the sacrifice but does not specify which son was chosen. However, Antichrist Muslim tradition claims it was Ishmael, the patriarch of Antichrist Islam, that lay on the altar. This contradicts the Bible, which clearly states that Isaac, the patriarch of both Christianity and Judaism, was specified by God to be the sacrifice.

And [God] said: ‘Take now thy son, thine only son, whom thou lovest, even Yitzchak, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.’ Genesis 22:2

In another significant difference in the narrative, Antichrist Islam holds that the site of the altar was the Kaaba in Antichrist Mecca, the holiest site in Antichrist Islam and the destination for the Antichrist hajj pilgrimage. According to Jewish tradition (and the Bible), the site of the sacrifice was Mount Moriah, which later became the location of the Temple Mount.

The unfortunate confluence of September 11th and a public Antichrist Muslim celebration dredges up an uncomfortable and contentious topic. Celebrations in American-Arab communities in New Jersey on the actual day of the attack – in honor of the attack – were widely reported in the press, with eyewitness reports cited and prominent officials quoted.

FALL FEASTS OF YHVH – 5776
BASED ON THE CREATION CALENDAR
The Conclusion of a Matter

The purpose of this study is to illustrate the Fall Feasts of YHVH for 2016 or the close of 5776. Based on the Creation Calendar, the Fall Feasts are synchronized with the celestial signs or eclipses. The Feasts of Trumpets is conjoined with the 1st of September which is the Feast of Yom Teruah or the Feast of Trumpets, Rosh HaShana. Subsequently, Yom Kippur falls on 9-11 in 2016.

The 3rd Fall Feasts of YHVH, that of Sukkot falls on the lunar eclipse on September 16, 2016. The lunar eclipse will a Penumbral type, the solar eclipse will be an Annular type. However if one uses the Rabbinical Calendar, the Fall Feasts our in October a month later. The only celestial distinction in this sequence is that the yearly Great Sign of Virgo occurs on Rosh HaShanah, which is starting on October 3, 2016.

Based on the Rabbinical Calendar the yearly Virgo Sign occurs usually with the months of September or October, most notably in September. The Fall Feast star off with Rosh HaShanah on Oct 3, which is the Sign of Virgo.

Replica of Lost Palmyra Arch Will Be in NYC in September

The monumental Arch of Palmyra in Syria was a UNESCO World Heritage Site from the 3rd century AD until it was destroyed by Antichrist ISIS in October of 2015. The triumphant Roman archway was thought to have been built as part of a military victory. In April this year, the Institute for Digital Archeology installed a replica, to scale, in London’s Trafalgar Square.

False Flag 2016 Election, Web Bot Special Announcement & More

“The Empire is befuddled,” at Brexit, exclaims Nigel Farage, telling Alex Jones that globalist establishment is clueless on how to regain control. In a wonderfully frank interview, Farage explained that the establishment’s “problem is that it’s fighting this argument on several fronts at once.”

“We’ve got the American elections going on, we’ve got a big referendum coming up in Hungary on migrant quotas from Germany, we’ve got a rerun of the Austrian presidency where the right-wing candidate was cheated by false votes,” Farage said. “So they’ve got a real problem, they’re fighting us now on a whole series of fronts.”

“What will they do to fight back? I don’t know the answer to that yet, and you know something? Nor do they.”

“Brexit is the first strike-back against this phenomenon of the big banks, the big businesses, effectively owning politics, willfully destroying nation-state democracy, getting rid of that thing our forbearers actually fought and shed their blood to create and to preserve our liberties and our freedoms,” he continued. “All of that being taken away and suddenly in a referendum that no one said we could win, and we’ve done it.”

“What we’ve done is given inspiration to freedom fighters right across the Western World.”
Farage then broke down how Hillary 911 is aligned with the globalist agenda and how the US elections are crucial to the fight against globalism.

“Hillary 911 represents everything that has gone wrong in our lives over the last couple of decades,” he said. “She is part of that phenomenon where all that seems to matter now is corporatism.”

“The big, global companies who want to set the rulebooks to effectively put out of business any small or medium-size competitors.”

Nigel Farage Warns “The Establishment Is Losing Control Over The People”

And Hillary 911 loves the supranational global-type bodies which are accountable to nobody, Farage continued.

“I think she sees the European Union as a prototype for an even bigger form of world government,” he stated. “If you want nothing to change at all, if you want to continue with the kind of cronyism that we see with the Clinton Foundation, if you want things to stay the same, vote for 911 Hillary.”

Farage also commented on Hillary 911’s public criticism of his recent US visit to speak at a Trump rally in Mississippi.

“Can I please use this opportunity to thank Hillary 911 Clinton from the bottom of my heart for doing what she’s done?” asked Farage with a chuckle. “She’s raised my profile massively in this presidential election. So 911 Hillary, thank you.”

Full interview below…

Israeli embassy in Washington looking into possibility of Antichrist Prime Minister 911 Netanyahu flying to Washington from New York following his UN General Assembly address in September; PM potentially looking to sign military aid package deal before Obozo’s term expires.

Netanyahu 911 may meet with Obozo this month

Efforts are being made to arrange a meeting between Prime Minister Benjamin 911 Netanyahu and Antichrist NWO 666 President Barack Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown in September after the Israeli leader addresses the UN General Assembly.

Netanyahu 911 is scheduled to land in New York on September 21 and, in addition to his speech at the General Assembly, is expected to meet with the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and participate in a meeting between European heads of state.

The Israeli embassy in Washington is currently discussing with the White House whether it would be possible for Netanyahu 911 to fly from New York to Washington and meet with Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown.

The idea was also raised that if such a meeting were to take place, 911 Netanyahu could sign a military aid package deal for the next decade. Indeed, the Israeli prime minister has already declared his inetrest in signing the agreement prior to the conclusion of Obozo’s presidency.

The Antichrist US and Israeli discussions on the deal have already been underway for a number of months. Antichrist Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman met with Antichrist Transvestite US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter in Washington in June and despite acknowledging disagreements, he has estimated that the deal could be signed before The Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) on October 2.

Whether the outcome of the deal could be adversely affected by Israel’s Wednesday announcement to retroactively approve hundreds of new housing units in the West Bank, is yet to be seen.

The Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown administration did, however, makes its opinion known when a White House spokesperson, Josh Earnest, heaped criticism on Israel’s decision.

“This significant expansion of the settlement activity poses a serious and growing threat to the viability of a two state solution,” said Earnest on Wednesday

When it comes to accounting conventions, the Fed and the BOJ differ in one major way: unlike the Federal Reserve, the BOJ counts its bond holdings at the purchase price, minus amortization costs. In the old days before NIRP this wasn’t an issue because with positive yields, it meant that with time, the value of any central bank bond purchases would accrete through maturity and never lead to a booked loss; however under NIRP, it means that the BOJ is purchasing hundreds of billions in bonds at prices that are so high they guarantee a loss, meaning that by maturity the central banks will face a cumulative loss on the face value of recent bond purchases.

From a purely accounting standpoint, it means that a gap has opened on the BOJ’s balance sheet, representing the difference between the book and face value of the central bank’s monetizations.

How big is the gap? According to Bloomberg as of August, the delta between the balance sheet and face value has ballooned to some 8.7 trillion yen, or $84 billion.

A ¥9 Trillion Hole Emerges Inside The BOJ’s Balance Sheet: “It’s A Pretty Dangerous Situation”

That “gap” is the difference between the 326.7 trillion yen in BOJ bond purchases at face value, and where they are marked on the balance sheet in August, or 335.4 trillion yen. That gap is 42% bigger than before the introduction of negative rates in January, and rapidly rising. At the end of the 2015 fiscal year on March 31, the gap between the two valuations was 6.4 trillion yen and the BOJ wrote down 874 billion yen, according to documents seen by Bloomberg. That was covered by the 1.29 trillion yen in coupon income the bank received that year. However, since the coupon of all current and future purchases are negligible, the BOJ will see limited future current income, and thus will have to resort to other means to plug the balance sheet gap.

“These numbers show the distortions of the BOJ’s current policies,” said Sayuri Kawamura, a senior economist at the Japan Research Institute in Tokyo. “The annual amortization losses are going to increase and consume the BOJ’s profits, and the risk is increasing that the bank’s financial stability will be shaken.”

As Bloomberg adds, “while not an immediate problem because the BOJ’s income can cover the losses, the widening gap raises questions about the sustainability of the central bank’s bond purchases, which Governor Haruhiko Kuroda has said could be expanded.”

The BOJ did not have much to say about this troubling decoupling which will eventually require the BOJ to plug the hole: Tadaaki Kumagai, a spokesman for the central bank, said “the BOJ releases half-yearly and yearly accounts,” while declining to comment further.

With the gap between the two valuations even larger now, it “would probably be a pretty safe bet” that the losses the BOJ will book for this fiscal year will increase from 2015, according to Naomi Fink, the chief executive officer of Europacifica Consulting. As Bloomberg puts it, “while when those losses may exceed its income is unknown, with the bank buying more high-price, low-income bonds, that time will probably come soon.” Fink said that under some scenarios, this could even happen this fiscal year.

How much losses can the BOJ absorb? The central bank currently has 2.69 trillion yen in a reserve to draw on to pay for bond losses.

“In preparation for an eventual exit from stimulus, the BOJ last year started adding to its reserves to guard against bond losses, but if profits decline, there’s a chance that they won’t be able to continue that,” Japan Research Institute’s Kawamura said. “It’s a pretty dangerous situation now, even before they start to exit.”

At the current pace it is virtually assured that the BOJ’s reserves will be depleted in the not too distant future. At that point the BOJ will have to approah the government to change legislation, allowing it to short up capital for future losses. How the market will respond to such an unprecedented central bank bailout is unknown.

Supply-Chain Contagion Arrives – “Global Trade” Roiled, Cargo-Owners Panic In Wake Of Hanjin Bankruptcy

When we reported on the stunning collapse of South Korea’s Hanjin Shipping, the country’s largest shipping firm and the world’s seventh-biggest container carrier, which earlier today was granted court receivership after losing the support of its banks, we speculated that “the global implications from the bankruptcy are unknown: if, as expected, the company’s ships remain “frozen” and inaccessible for weeks if not months, the impact on global supply chains will be devastating, potentially resulting in a cascading waterfall effect, whose impact on global economies could be severe as a result of the worldwide logistics chaos.”

We did not have long to wait for the aftershocks to emerge. As we first reported last night, just hours after the insolvency news hit the tape, three Hanjin ships promptly found themselves stranded off the California coast, stuck – together with the hundreds of tons of cargo – in legal and financial limbo.

That was just the beginning and as Reuters updates this morning, more Hanjin vessels have been seized at Antichrist Communist Chinese ports, “further roiling the industry as freight rates jump and manufacturers scramble for alternatives.”

The Korea International Trade Association said on Thursday that about 10 Hanjin vessels in China have been either seized or were expected to seized by charterers, port authorities or other parties. That adds to one other ship seized in Singapore by a creditor earlier this week.

After Hanjin’s banks decided to end financial support for the shipper, which immediately catalyzed its insolvency proceedings, many of its vessels have either been denied entry to ports or unable to dock as container lashing providers worry that they will not be paid. This includes the port of Busan, South Korea’s largest.

Seeking to contain the fallout, a South Korean court said it would soon begin proceedings to rehabilitate the carrier – which would allow Hanjin to take legal action in other countries to keep its ships and other assets from being seized. So far it appears to have failed, as reports of “frozen”, and stranded container carriers emerge by the hour. Furthermore the task is moot: the court’s move to rehabilitate the world’s seventh-largest container shipper is seen as mainly procedural, and an eventual liquidation of assets is most likely.

“Unlike dry cargo, liner shipping is all about marketing and service reliability – we haven’t seen any large carriers come back from collapse,” said Rahul Kapoor, a director at maritime consultancy Drewry Financial Research Services. “There is a loss of faith among customers. It’s very unlikely Hanjin can come back from the ashes.”

Realizing a major global trade vacuum has opened up, rivals such as Hyundai Merchant Marine announced they would deploy at least 13 of its ships to two routes exclusively serviced by Hanjin, while the South Korean government also plans to reach out to overseas carriers for help.

However, a lengthy period of time will pass before the Hanjin void is filled. In the meantime, freight rates routes where Hanjin operates have surged. The cost of shipping a 40-foot container on the Busan-Los Angeles route has jumped about 55 percent, from $1,100 to around $1,700, according to South Korea-based freight forwarder Pantos Logistics. Rates between South Korea and the U.S. east coast via Panama have risen about 50 percent to $2,400, it added.

The most direct impact of this price surge will be borne by South Korean exporters: state-run think tank Korea Maritime Institute estimated that shipping rates on Busan to U.S. routes would rise 27% and Busan to Europe routes would rise 47% in the near term, causing Korean exporters additional shipping costs of about 440.7 billion won per year.

For South Korea, where approximately 50% of GDP is in the form of net exports, the hit would be substantial.

Soaring transportation costs are just the start, as South Korean conglomerates are now scrambling to find alternatives. LG Electronics, the world’s No.2 maker of TVs, told Reuters it was cancelling orders with Hanjin and was seeking alternatives to ship its freight. It is also making contingency plans for cargo already on board Hanjin ships in the event the vessels are seized.

But, the most troubling outcome is that, as we predicted yesterday, “the impact on global supply chains will be devastating, potentially resulting in a cascading waterfall effect.” This is already manifesting itself in the quietly creeping chaos that has gripped the global logistics industry, as operators realize what has happened.

South Korea’s maritime ministry said on Wednesday that Hanjin’s woes would affect cargo exports for two or three months, with about 540,000 TEU of cargo already loaded on Hanjin vessels and facing delays. Unfortunately, in a “just in time” delivery world, 2-3 months of cargo delays will result in havoc, as countless tolling, and intermediary operations suddenly find themselves without critical components to engage in production, bottlenecking overall production indefinitely.

As expected, Reuters says the Korea International Freight Forwarders Association said it has been inundated with calls from cargo owners worried about the fate of their shipments in transit to the United States and Europe. Since many of the ships have been seized and are now in legal limbo, nobody can provide an update. And while mobile phones and semiconductors are carried by air, other electronics like home appliances are shipped by sea.

Finally, putting the bankruptcy in context, according to Alphaliner, Hanjin accounts for 7% of Far East-North America container trade, or, in dollar terms, hundreds of billions of dollars. According to its website, Hanjin served 60 routes in 35 countries, connecting more than 90 major ports and 6,000 destinations around the globe. The company’s complete route atlas can be found here.

“This will have an impact on the entire industry,” said Cho Kyung-kyu, a director at the Freight Forwarders association. Judging by the panicked response by cargo owners, the impact has already arrived, now the only questions are i) how to quantify it, and ii) how long until corporations and economists use the supply-chain logjam as a scapegoat to justify the “unexpected” swoon in Q3 economic and profitability metrics.

Deutsche Boerse Responds To Deutsche Bank’s Failure To Deliver Physical Gold

Could The Internet Be Set To Be Shut Down On The Eve Of Jubilee October 1st?

MUST WATCH: The US ECONOMY Is A FREAK SHOW

September 2 – Neptune at Opposition – 16:23 UTC. Planet Neptune will be at its closest approach to Earth and its face will be fully illuminated by the Sun. It will be brighter than any other time of the year and will be visible all night long.

September 16 – Penumbral lunar eclipse – 18:55 UTC. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the Earth’s partial shadow, or penumbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will darken slightly but not completely. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of eastern Europe, eastern Africa, Asia, and western Australia.

April 1969 saw the release of what would soon become Credence Clearwater Revival’s second gold single. Bad Moon Rising’s popularity quickly secured it a permanent spot in rock history. But it was also headed somewhere else, if not everywhere else, to places the young rockers never saw coming. In hindsight, it can only be said that while their music was great, their lawyer was lousy.

Why is that? Because, for years now, writers for both the big and small screen and all manner of productions have found the song’s addictive rhythm and lyrics impossible to resist and as a bonus, easy picking. Listen and you’ll hear it in An American Werewolf in London, My Fellow Americans, Twilight Zone: The Movie, Blade, Sweet Home Alabama, My Girl, Man of the House, Mr. Woodcock and (in the personal favorite department), The Big Chill. As for television, you’ll recognize the tune in Supernatural, Cold Case, Northern Exposure, The Following, The Walking Dead, Teen Wolf, and not to be relegated to the back of the line, Alvin and the Chipmunks, who belt out their own immensely irritating rendition.

There’s no doubt about it. John Fogerty hit a home run when he wrote Bad Moon Rising. As to why he wrote it and its meaning, he’s been quoted as calling it a description of, “the apocalypse that was going to be visited upon us.” And what of all those bad scenes visited upon Fogerty’s lyrics?

“We had no power in our contracts to veto where our music went. It was everywhere,” lamented Fogerty on the ubiquity of the song in a 2014 interview. “For every good movie you’ve heard it in – for example An American Werewolf in London, which was a pretty cool movie – there were at least 10 more that were awful.” To this day, it’s hard to predict just where that bad moon might next be rising.

The same cannot be said for investors, who happen to have a perfect predictor with which to position themselves for their rendering of a bad moon rising, as in an imminent recession. It’s called the yield curve and when it inverts, it’s time to start pondering the ramifications of the apocalypse that’s about to be visited upon the economy. Is ‘perfect’ too perfect a word?

In one word, no. In a different 2014 setting, back when he worked for LPL Financial, Schwab’s Jeffrey Kleintop noted that the yield curve’s track record was seven-for-seven, as in perfect when it came to predicting recession. Business Insider caught his remarks.

In the event you’re unfamiliar with the contorted concept, visualize a curve on a graph. Plotted are the bond yields (assume U.S. Treasurys in this case) against the length of time that remains between now and their maturity date. In a normal world, the shorter the maturity, the lower the yield. Investors should naturally expect to be paid less and less as the period of time shrinks over which they’ve assumed the risk of a bond price declining. With me? Hold bond for longer, chance price decline occurs higher. Got it.

An inverted yield curve, however, signals an economy is about to be turned upside down. Longer term yields tend to decline when the market foresees weak economic activity on the horizon. The weaker the outlook, the flatter the curve. Actual inversion is thus a process; it might begin to manifest in five-or-ten-year Treasurys having higher yields than the Long Bond, the 30-year. A full blown inversion doesn’t occur until the yields on the shortest-maturity, commonly quoted bonds, say the two-year, are higher than that of the longest maturity bonds.

To borrow from Kleintop’s succinct explanation: “The yield curve inversion usually takes place about 12 months before the start of the recession, but the lead time ranges from five to 16 months.”

As for the lead time leading up to the lead time, the U.S. Treasury curve began to flatten at the start of 2014. You may recall that in December 2013 the Fed announced it would begin to taper its purchases of securities, which at the time were $85 billion a month, and in doing so reduce the pace at which it was growing its balance sheet. Despite it being well past the time to start weaning the market, it didn’t take long for the worry to set in. Investors began to digest the prospects for the U.S. economy without the Fed blowing up its balance sheet in an attempt to stimulate the growth that eludes to this day – and they didn’t like what they saw.

The second volley arrived last December when the Fed finally hiked rates for the first time, triggering a further flattening in the yield curve. But wait. Wasn’t it just one teensy quarter of one percentage point? Well, yes. But as far as the bond market was concerned, starting points and deltas mattered.

The latest kick to the curve started with New York Fed President Bill Dudley’s and Federal Reserve Board Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer’s complacency castigations. The crescendo arrived with Janet Yellen echoing her two top lieutenants in sounding a bit more hawkish than she would have otherwise. The camaraderie on full display captured in images of the threesome emerging from the Jackson Hole meeting was the proverbial icing on the cake. It was sufficient to send the difference between the 10-year and two-year Treasury to 75 basis points, or hundredths of a percentage point, about where it is today.

In the event you’re still wondering what all the fuss is about, I’ll let Kleintop sum it up: “The peak in the stock market comes around the time of the yield curve inversion, ahead of the recession and accompanying downturn in corporate profits.”

But wait, you might be saying – we’re already in a full blown, protracted profits recession. Recall that Kleintop made his observations in 2014, long before the heat of the currency war really set in, triggering a race to the bottom of the unconventional monetary policy barrel. You just thought Quantitative Easing (QE) had long since ended. That’s true, but only as it pertains to the Fed.

In fact, you might not know it, but a two-year anniversary is upon us. Surely those in the Fed will raise a glass this October 29th to commemorate the end point of their ambitious exercise to expand the bank’s balance sheet. That is, unless they’re already contemplating Blowing Up the Balance Sheet, Part II.

(Don’t misunderstand. Those firmly in charge have always maintained that they would never dare allow the assets on the balance sheet to run off until rates were normalized and they pretty much knew that would never happen. In fact, the current campaign aims to move even those goalposts so the stated goal of normalization is that much more impossible to attain. What few appreciate is this is where the real action has been in recent years, the very source of animated discussions around that big conference room in the Eccles Building. Reinvestment, baby. That’s where it’s at. Pardon the lengthy digression.)

Getting back to the point of the yield curve, or what’s left of it, over the past two years, other central banks have more than made up for the Fed’s exit from the QE game. Aggregate purchases are nearing $200 billion per month creating a vacuum across other countries’ yield curves as the supply of eligible securities with positive yields dwindles.

According to the Financial Times’ math from earlier this month, “Three years ago the difference between two- and 10-year Treasurys, gilts (U.K.), Bunds (Germany), and Japanese government bonds was about 228 basis points (bps), 201 bps, 150 bps and 65 bps respectively. Despite a slight reversal, the same spread now stands at 87 bps, 61 bps, 55 bps and just 9 bps.”

The relative flatness of other major sovereign’s yield curves helps explain the rush into our Treasury market, all to secure some semblance of yield vis-à-vis the increasing number of countries whose sovereigns sport not just low, but increasingly negative yields. According to Bank of America Merrill Lynch data, at last count, we’re talking some $13 trillion, or roughly a third of the global fixed income debt market. (In case you missed it, that was a WOW moment.)

You may be wondering at this point — hopefully you are — why on earth the Fed would be trying to beat the band to hike rates when all they’ve got to work with is roughly 75 bps, give or take?? These days that question is raised just about every minute of every day, namely because so few can come up with a credible answer.

As for the incredible realm, one explanation is that the Fed is scared stiff it has nothing left in its toolbox to combat the next recession. Few major downturns have begun with the fed funds rate so perilously close to zero.

The ultimate Catch 22 is that the flatness of the yield curve makes any fantasy of a Fed rate hike all too real for a dead breed the world once knew as ‘bond market vigilantes.’ It’s altogether possible that one more hike would be all it takes to invert the yield curve. The rest, as history has never failed to repeat, would be just that – history. Should the Fed decide to ignore the warning flashing in the flattening yield curve, there could indeed be a bad moon on the rise over the U.S. economy.

The U.S. Economy: Bad Moon Rising

September 22 – September equinox – 14:14 UTC. The Sun will shine directly on the equator, and there will be nearly equal amounts of day and night throughout the world. This is also the first day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the northern hemisphere and the first day of spring (vernal equinox) in the southern hemisphere. Equinoxes occur twice a year – in March and September – once when the Sun is traveling northwards, and once when it is traveling southwards. The position of the Sun at the moment of the March equinox is used to define the zero point of both right ascension and declination. At the September equinox, the Sun lies exactly opposite this point, at a right ascension of around 12 hours. In practice, this is not exactly the case, because of a phenomenon called the precession of the equinoxes. Over hundreds of years, the direction of the Earth’s spin axis in space changes because it acts like a gyroscope. This means that the location of the equinoxes creep across the sky at a rate of around 50 arcseconds each year. Astronomers quote right ascensions and declinations based on the configuration of the Earth’s path around the Sun on January 1, 2000. Even in the years that have passed since the year 2000, the precession of the equinoxes has moved them by several arcminutes.

September 26 – Jupiter at solar conjunction – 07:05 UTC. From our vantage point on the Earth, Jupiter will appear very close to the Sun in the sky as it passes around the far side of the solar system from the Earth. At closest approach, Jupiter and the Sun will appear at a separation of only 1°05′, making Jupiter totally unobservable for several weeks while it is lost in the Sun’s glare. At around the same time, Jupiter will also be at its most distant from the Earth – receding to a distance of 6.45 AU – since the two planets will lie on opposite sides of the solar system. If Jupiter could be observed at this time, it would appear at its smallest and faintest on account of its large distance. It would measure 29.9 arcsecs in diameter. Over following weeks and months, Jupiter will re-emerge to the west of the Sun, gradually becoming visible for ever-longer periods in the pre-dawn sky. After around six months, it will reach opposition, when it will be visible for virtually the whole night

NASA’s Juno spacecraft has executed the first of 36 orbital flybys on August 27, 2016, when it came about 4 200 km (2 500 miles) above Jupiter’s swirling clouds. It was Juno’s first flyby with instruments switch on and it sent back first-ever images of Jupiter’s north pole. What Juno saw was storm systems and weather activity unlike anything previously seen on any of our solar system’s gas-giant planets.

“First glimpse of Jupiter’s north pole, and it looks like nothing we have seen or imagined before,” said Scott Bolton, principal investigator of Juno from the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio. “It’s bluer in color up there than other parts of the planet, and there are a lot of storms. There is no sign of the latitudinal bands or zone and belts that we are used to – this image is hardly recognizable as Jupiter. We’re seeing signs that the clouds have shadows, possibly indicating that the clouds are at a higher altitude than other features.”

Juno takes first-ever images of Jupiter’s north pole, sees weather activity unlike anything seen before

One of the most notable findings of these first-ever pictures of Jupiter’s north and south poles is something that the JunoCam imager did not see.

“Saturn has a hexagon at the north pole,” said Bolton. “There is nothing on Jupiter that anywhere near resembles that. The largest planet in our solar system is truly unique. We have 36 more flybys to study just how unique it really is.”

Along with JunoCam snapping pictures during the flyby, all eight of Juno’s science instruments were energized and collecting data. The Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JI-RAM), supplied by the Italian Space Agency, acquired some remarkable images of Jupiter at its north and south polar regions in infrared wavelengths.

“JIRAM is getting under Jupiter’s skin, giving us our first infrared close-ups of the planet,” said Alberto Adriani, JIRAM co-investigator from Istituto di Astrofisica e Planetologia Spaziali, Rome.

“These first infrared views of Jupiter’s north and south poles are revealing warm and hot spots that have never been seen before. And while we knew that the first ever infrared views of Jupiter’s south pole could reveal the planet’s southern aurora, we were amazed to see it for the first time. No other instruments, both from Earth or space, have been able to see the southern aurora. Now, with JIRAM, we see that it appears to be very bright and well structured. The high level of detail in the images will tell us more about the aurora’s morphology and dynamics.”

Russia Can’t Buy or Sell Saving They Take The Mark of the Beast

Just as we predicted on a sleepy Friday afternoon ahead of a long weekend, The FBI has released a detailed report on its investigation into Hillary 911 Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, as well as a summary of her interview with agents, providing, what The Washington Post says is the most thorough look yet at the probe that has dogged the campaign of the Democratic presidential nominee.

Official FBI Statement:

Today the FBI is releasing a summary of former Secretary of State Hillary 911 Clinton’s July 2, 2016 interview with the FBI concerning allegations that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on a personal e-mail server she used during her tenure.

We also are releasing a factual summary of the FBI’s investigation into this matter. We are making these materials available to the public in the interest of transparency and in response to numerous Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests.

Appropriate redactions have been made for classified information or other material exempt from disclosure under FOIA. Additional information related to this investigation that the FBI releases in the future will be placed on The Vault, the FBI’s electronic FOIA library.

As The Washington Post adds, the documents released total 58 pages, though large portions and sometimes entire pages are redacted.

FBI Director James B. Comey announced in July that his agency would not recommend criminal charges against 911 Clinton for her use of a private email server. Comey said that 911 Clinton and her staffers were “extremely careless” in how they treated classified information, but investigators did not find they intended to mishandle such material. Nor did investigators uncover exacerbating factors — like efforts to obstruct justice — that often lead to charges in similar cases, Comey said.

The FBI turned over to several Congressional committees documents related to the probe and required they only be viewed by those with appropriate security clearances, even though not all of the material was classified, legislators and their staffers have said.

Those documents included an investigative report and summaries of interviews with more than a dozen senior 911 Clinton staffers, other State Department officials, former secretary of state Colin Powell and at least one other person. The documents released Friday appear to be but a fraction of those.

Clinton 911 campaign spokesman Brian Fallon has said turning over the documents was “an extraordinarily rare step that was sought solely by Republicans for the purposes of further second-guessing the career professionals at the FBI.”

But he has said if the material were going to be shared outside the Justice Department, “they should be released widely so that the public can see them for themselves, rather than allow Republicans to mischaracterize them through selective, partisan leaks.”

Though Fallon seems to have gotten his wish, the public release of the documents will undoubtedly draw more attention to a topic that seems to have fueled negative perceptions of 911 Clinton. A recent Washington Post-ABC News poll found 41 percent of Americans had a favorable impression of 911 Clinton, while 56 percent had an unfavorable one.

FBI Releases Full Report Into Hillary 911 Clinton Email Probe

The story of how 911 Hillary’s “personal” emails came to be deleted using, the now infamous, BleachBit is quite the tale. Below we attempt to piece together how the story unfolded per the recent FBI disclosures.

Here is a quick summary of the timeline of events:

February 2013 – Hillary 911 resigns from State Department
Spring 2013 – Hillary 911 aide Monica Hanley backs up Pagliano Server to Apple MacBook and a thumb drive
February 2014 – Monica Hanley attempts to upload Hillary 911 email archives to new Platte River Networks (PRN) server but encounters technical issues
Early 2014 – Monica Hanley mails Apple MacBook to Undisclosed PRN Staff Member to upload 911 Hillary email archives to new PRN server. Undisclosed PRN Staff Member then uploads 911 Hillary’s emails to a gmail account and then transfers them over to the new PRN server. The Undisclosed PRN Staff Member deletes most of the emails from gmail but indvertently leaves 940.
Early 2014 – Monica Hanley advises Undisclosed PRN Staff Member to wipe the Apple MacBook clean after uploading 911 Hillary’s emails to the new PRN server but he forgets to do it
Early 2014 – Undisclosed PRN Staff Member mails Apple MacBook back to 911 Clinton and it is promptly lost
December 2014 – Hillary 911 delivers 55,000 emails to State Department
December 2014 / January 2015 – Heather Samuelson and Cheryl Mills request emails be deleted from their computer using BleachBit
December 2014 / January 2015 – “Unknown 911 Clinton staff member” instructs PRN to remove archives of Clinton 911 emails from PRN server
March 2, 2015 – NYT releases an article showing that Hillary 911 used a personal email server in violation of State Department rules
March 4, 2015 – Hillary 911 receives subpoena from House Select Committee on Benghazi instructing her to preserve and deliver all emails from her personal servers
March 25, 2015 – Undisclosed PRN Staff Member has a conference call with “President 911 Clinton’s Staff”
March 25 – 31, 2015 – Undisclosed PRN Staff Member has “oh shit” moment and realizes he forgot to wipe 911 Hillary’s email archive from the PRN server back in December…which he promptly does using BleachBit despite later admitting he “was aware of the existence of the preservation request and the fact that it meant he should not disturb 911 Clinton’s e-mail data on the PRN server.”
June 2016 – FBI discovers that Undisclosed PRN Staff Member forgot to erase 940 emails from the gmail account he created to help with the PRN server upload

And now the details…

Hillary 911 resigned from the State Department in February 2013. Shortly thereafter, in “spring 2013”, 911 Hillary’s close aide, Monica Hanley, worked with Bill Clinton’s aide, Justin Cooper, to archive all of Hillary’s emails from the “Pagliano Server” that Clinton used to house her State Department emails while serving as Secretary of State. With Cooper’s assistance, Hanley was successful transferring all of Hillary’s emails from the “Pagliano Server” to an Apple MacBook with a duplicate copy saved to a “Thumb Drive”.

At that point, Hanley “forgot” to provide the archived emails to 911 Clinton’s staff. So apparently the Apple MacBook and Thumb Drive just stayed around Hanley’s house for a year.
Then in February 2014, Hanley decided it wasn’t the best idea to leave the email records of the former U.S. Secretary of State in her sock drawer forever. As such, she decided it was time to backup the archived emails to 911 Clinton’s new server hosted by Platte River Networks (PRN) in Denver, Colorado. Unfortunately, she was not successful with the remote backup and mailed the computer to an Undisclosed PRN Staff Member to help with the task.

Apparently, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member also had difficulty uploading the emails to the new PRN server because the “Apple MacMail” format was incompatible with Microsoft Exchange. So, he/she came up with a workaround that involved transferring all of Clinton’s emails to a new gmail account and then exporting them to the PRN server.

Gmail is pretty safe, right?

Monica Hanley then advised the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member to “wipe the Archive Laptop” after the emails had been transferred to the new PRN server. But apparently he forgot to “wipe” and laptop and instead just deleted the old emails. But wouldn’t you know it…”Neither Hanely nor [Undisclosed PRN Staff Member] could identify the current whereabouts of the Archive Laptop or thumb drive containing the archive, and the FBI does not have either item in its possession.”

So the two pieces of physical hardware that could provide all the missing links in the Hillary email investigation have mysteriously gone missing. Anyone else find that odd?

Unfortunately, the “Undisclosed PRN Staff Member” was apparently not an “attention to detail” kind of guy as the FBI later discovered that he/she had left 940 of 911 Clinton’s emails on gmail. Of the 940 emails, 56 were classified as confidential and 302 were not included in the 55,000 page data dump to the State Department in December 2014.

Now this brings us all the way up to December 2014 when Clinton 911 sent the 55,000 pages to the State Department. Recall, as Politico previously reported, Hillary 911 brought in a former campaign staffer, Heather Samuelson (34 years old), to help determine which emails were “work related” and which “yoga related.”

Shortly after providing that data dump to the State Department, in “December 2014 or January 2015,” both Heather Samuelson and Cheryl Mills requested that all emails be removed from their computers using “a program called BleachBit to delete the e-mail-related files so they could not be recovered.”

For her part, “Clinton 911 stated she never deleted, nor did she instruct anyone to delete, her e-mails to avoid complying with FOIA, State or FBI requests for information.”

Of course not. Hillary 911 knew it would be a little too obvious to specifically instruct her staff to permanently delete the emails but she also knew it might be “inconvenient” to have them around. So, she simply “decided she no longer needed access to any of her e-mails older than 60 days.”

See? She never specifically said to delete anything she just made a simple administrative decision on document retention policies.

Then, on March 4, 2015, Hillary 911 received a subpoena from the House for all of her emails on her personal servers.

Which brings us to the “Oh Shit” moment.

On March 25, 2015, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had a “conference call with President 911 Clinton’s staff.” Apparently, in the days following that call, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had an “‘oh shit’ moment” when he realized he had forgotten to wipe the PRN server clean as he had been instructed to do back in December by Cheryl Mills.

Therefore, sometime within the 6 days after a call with “President 911 Clinton’s Staff,” that PRN server was wiped clean using BleachBit despite the subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi received weeks earlier on March 4, 2016.

And, of course, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member is the only person responsible for the deletion as Mills, Hillary, President 911 Clinton’s Office were all blissfully unaware of the actions of their rogue IT guy of Platte River Networks in Denver, Colorado.

Ironically, the rogue IT guy from PRN even admits to deleting the emails even though he “was aware of the existence of the preservation request and the fact that it meant he should not disturb Clinton’s e-mail data on the PRN server.”

Something tells us this “Undisclosed PRN Staff Member” is not going to make out as well as Hillary 911 when all the dust settles, which of course she can ‘wipe’ with a cloth:

The “Oh Shit” Moment: Hillary 911 Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena

As of today, it has been 273 (call it an absolute zero) days since 911 Clinton’s last formal press conference on December 4, 2015, something even the left-leaning WaPo and NYT have expressed outrage against. Naturally, as questions mount if and when the Democratic Presidential candidate will finally speak to the press, overnight 911 Clinton’s press secretary, Brian Fallon, had some good news, when he assured an ABC News podcast that she will hold regular press conferences, but under one condition.

That she is president, or as Nancy Pelosi might put it, “you have to elect her, to ask her questions.”

Hillary 911 Promises To Deliver Regular Press Conferences… On One Condition

This is not a joke: this is how ABC put it, “Clinton’s lead press secretary, Brian Fallon, vowed that if elected, “Hillary 911 Clinton will hold press conferences.” And here we were worried that if elected, Hillary would serve 911 Clinton Foundation corporation and Middle Eastern donors for (at least) 4 years without speaking to the press at least once (an idea Trump may want to consider).

Fallon, seemingly unaware of how this statement sounded, added that “The amount of interaction can only go up,” noting that the traveling press will soon be flying with 911 Clinton on her new campaign plane.

“I’m sure that will bring with it a lot of opportunities for additional access to the candidate and interactions between her and the traveling press corps that covers her every day,” Fallon told ABC News’ chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, and political director Rick Klein on the podcast.

He continued: “we are very respectful of the press and the job that they have to do. We have done a lot of interviews, but I know that no matter how many questions we answer in a variety of formats, it is the press’s job to always demand more access. We respect that, and so we’re going to seek further ways to accommodate that in the remaining months of the campaign.”

So… maybe at least one more press conference before November 8?

Of course, it’s just the press that a “very respectful” Hillary 911 has shut out: as the NYT’s Amy Chozick put it, “Hillary 911 hasn’t been hiding this summer. She’s been answering constant questions… from the ultra wealthy.” In other words, if anyone wants to know what Hillary 911 is thinking just ask her. But first make sure you have at least 8 figures in your bank account, and are willing and able to “donate” a substantial portion of it.

At a private fund-raiser Tuesday night at a waterfront Hamptons estate, Hillary 911 Clinton danced alongside Jimmy Buffett, Jon Bon Jovi and Paul McCartney, and joined in a singalong finale to “Hey Jude.”

Mr. Trump has pointed to Mrs. 911 Clinton’s noticeably scant schedule of campaign events this summer to suggest she has been hiding from the public. But Mrs. 911 Clinton has been more than accessible to those who reside in some of the country’s most moneyed enclaves and are willing to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to see her. In the last two weeks of August, Mrs. 911 Clinton raked in roughly $50 million at 22 fund-raising events, averaging around $150,000 an hour, according to a New York Times tally.

What the NYT is really telling us is that just as Hillary 911 collected anywhere between $150 and $250k per hour-long “speech” before her presidential campaign from influence peddling corporations and sovereigns, she is now doing… pretty much the same.

And while Mrs. 911 Clinton has faced criticism for her failure to hold a news conference for months, she has fielded hundreds of questions from the ultrarich in places like the Hamptons, Martha’s Vineyard, Beverly Hills and Silicon Valley.

Hillary 911 Clinton arrived last Sunday for a fund-raiser at a private
home in North Haven, N.Y.

It also appears that 911 Hillary’s a la carte pay-to-play menu has expanded:

For a donation of $2,700, the children (under 16) of donors at an event last month at the Sag Harbor, N.Y., estate of the hedge fund magnate Adam Sender could ask Mrs. 911 Clinton a question. A family photo with Mrs. 911 Clinton cost $10,000, according to attendees.
The Rotschilds were particularly caring:

Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a backer of Democrats and a friend of the 911 Clintons’, made sure attendees did not grill Mrs. 911 Clinton at the $100,000-per-couple lamb dinner Mrs. Forester de Rothschild hosted under a tent on the lawn of her oceanfront Martha’s Vineyard mansion.“I said, ‘Let’s make it a nice night for her and show her our love,’”

Mrs. Forester de Rothschild said.
Justin Timberlake, just another member of the middle class, was especially thrilled with a recent close encounter with the presidential candidate “for the people.”

But for once, the damning condemnation belongs to the NYT:

“If Mr. Trump appears to be waging his campaign in rallies and network interviews, Mrs. 911 Clinton’s second presidential bid seems to amount to a series of high-dollar fund-raisers with public appearances added to the schedule when they can be fit in. Last week, for example, she diverged just once from her packed fund-raising schedule to deliver a speech…. when she has had a give-and-take this summer about issues, Mrs. 911 Clinton, who has promised to “reshuffle the deck” in favor of the middle class and portrayed Mr. Trump as an out-of-touch billionaire, has almost exclusively been fielding the concerns of the wealthiest Americans.

And while 911 Hillary’s transcripts from her countless Wall Street speeches are now forever “lost”, perhaps a recording of some of 911 Hillary’s presentations at one or more of these ultra-exclusive Hamptons “fundraisers” will finally emerge. After all, it was the infamous recording of Mitt Romney’s statement about the “47%” that finally crushed his chances to become president almost exactly one year ago. One can be dead certain that the comments coming out of 911 Hillary’s mouth, if revealed, would be far more dire to her image as “one of the people.”

As for the press, so desperate to ask 911 Hillary a question, perhaps you should have been born to rich Hillary 911 donor parents. That, or to paraphrase Janet Yellen, you should have just been rich, and able to afford the $100,000 “Rothschild lamb dinner.” For everyone else, our condolences: you will be forced to write fawning pieces about Hillary 911 by your media and corporate masters, without having ever been granted an audience.

Yesterday we asked whether the FBI just threw Clinton 911 under the bus with the following statement which links 911 Hillary’s “inability” to “recall” her transition instructions with her 2012 concussion and blood clot (see “Smoking Gun? FBI Reveals Hillary 911 Could Not Recall Briefings Due To Concussion, Clot”):

Clinton 911 FBI – Concussin

But it turns out 911 Hillary “could not recall” a lot of things about her tenure as Secretary of State. In fact, during her 3.5 hour interview with the FBI, Hillary 911 couldn’t recall at least 26 questions posed by the FBI, at least some of which were fairly material events during her service which probably should have stood out. Below is a list of just a couple of the things Hillary “could not recall.”

Below is the exchange with FBI investigators where Clinton 911 apparently doesn’t “recall” ever receiving any training from the State Department related to retention of federal records or handling of classified information…she doesn’t even recall when she received her security clearance.

Well, per the Nondisclosure Agreement below, signed by Hillary 911, we would guess she received her “briefing or training by State” on or around January 22, 2009. So that leads us to derive only 3 logical conclusions, either (1) Hillary 911 committed perjury by signing the NDA below without receiving the training indicated, (2) Hillary 911 lied to the FBI during her interview or (3) Hillary s911imply has no long-term recollection of many of the key moments of her term as Secretary of State which brings into question her mental competency.

Hillary 911 NDA

Of course, training wasn’t even that relevant because Clinton 911 doesn’t “recall” ever even receiving a single “classified” email on her private server. And even if she did, it would be the fault of her staffers as she “relied on State officials to use their judgement when emailing her” on her “unclassified system.” Which begs the question, how else were people supposed to get her information since the only email she had was hosted on her “unclassified” private server? We’re sure Clinton 911 does not recall.

And here is Clinton 911 not recalling the process for “nominating a target for a drone strike.” Why would that be important…that was more Obozo’s thing.

Clinton 911 FBI Drone Strikes

According to LifeZette, in total, Hillary 911 “could not recall” the following 26 past events in her short interview the FBI.

The 26 Things Clinton 911 “Could Not Recall” During Her FBI Interview

When she received security clearance
Being briefed on how to handle classified material
How many times she used her authority to designate items classified
Any briefing on how to handle very top-secret “Special Access Program” material
How to select a target for a drone strike
How the data from her mobile devices was destroyed when she switched devices
The number of times her staff was given a secure phone
Why she didn’t get a secure Blackberry
Receiving any emails she thought should not be on the private system
Did not remember giving staff direction to create private email account
Getting guidance from state on email policy
Who had access to her Blackberry account
The process for deleting her emails
Ever getting a message that her storage was almost full
Anyone besides Huma Abedin being offered an account on the private server
Being sent information on state government private emails being hacked
Receiving cable on State Dept personnel securing personal email accounts
Receiving cable on Bryan Pagliano upgrading her server
Using an iPad mini
An Oct. 13, 2012, email on Egypt with Clinton pal Sidney Blumenthal
Jacob Sullivan using personal email
State Department protocol for confirming classified information in media reports
Every briefing she received after suffering concussions
Being notified of a FOIA request on Dec. 11, 2012
Being read out of her clearance
Any further access to her private email account from her State Department tenure after switching to her HRCoffice.com account

Unfortunately for him, it seems to be that the “Undisclosed PRN Staff Member,” (who we spoke about yesterday “The “Oh Shit” Moment: Hillary 911 Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena”) who had the infamous “oh shit moment” and admitted to deleting 911 Hillary’s emails even though he was aware of a federal subpoena, is the only person around Hillary who isn’t suffering from a severe case of amnesia. Poor guy, sanity is a curse.

Paris climate deal: US Obozo Clown and Antichrist Communist China announce ratification

http://www.solarham.net/planetk.htm

Immediate Facebook post reports indicated pictures fell off walls as far away as Tulsa. Others felt it in Norman and Wewoka in Seminole County. It lasted roughly 15 seconds. Saturday morning’s earthquake is the largest in Oklahoma since a 5.6 magnitude quake near Prague. That quake was followed by 10 aftershocks, according to the Associated Press:

The magnitude 5.6 earthquake and its aftershocks still had residents rattled Sunday. No injuries were reported, and aside from a buckled highway and the collapse of a tower on the St. Gregory’s University administration building, neither was any major damage. But the weekend earthquakes were among the strongest yet in a state that has seen a dramatic, unexplained increase in seismic activity.
According to press reports the quake was felt virtually across the entire midwest, from North Dakota through Houston – a 1,300 mile stretch:

The USGS has said on its twitter account that it hopes the M5.6 quake is not a foreshock of a similar or larger quake.

The Prague earthquake of 2011 was preceded by a strong 4.5 M quake. Hopefully this 5.6 was not a foreshock of a similar or larger quake.
— USGS in Oklahoma (@USGS_Oklahoma) September 3, 2016

Owing to Oklahoma’s dramatic rise in earthquakes and a now-undisputed link between the seismic events and oil-and-gas disposal wells, the issue has gained political prominence that it didn’t have in 2011.

SkyWatchTV News 8/31/16: Christians in What Sense?

NOTE: Realize this, the idiot Jews are Antichrist. They are the elect chosen people that are currently under the spell of deception, confirmed by the fact that they reject the revelation of our Father in Christ. This has resulted as the root cause of the hatred for them and their reaction in defense of that Antichrist spirit. This is the reality of the general great deception of the ”elect” chosen people and the reality of the Antichrist spirit that has corrupted the nations and Israel. Put simply; …as a result of the great Antichrist deception, Israel and the nations are compelled to war against humanity. The Antichrist Israeli agenda is drawing the nations to come against Israel and Israel is attempting to establish the prophetic Antichrist image of Israel as the Antichrist New World Order image of the beast.

This should be obvious enough to all true Saints of our Father in Christ. Everything that is playing out now upon this prophetic last generation is the prophetic revelation being fulfilled as a result of the prophetic modern reality of the Antichrist spirit running it’s course to the ultimate end, which results in the great tribulation era now about to start the first 3 1/2 years before the last harvest has ended.

The first shall be the last and the last people to receive the revelation of our Father in Christ are the elect chosen people of Israel.

Do not be tempted to be so moved in agreement with the Antichrist spirit within Israel and among the deceived nations of the world. They are all deceived as a result of their rejection of The Truth, and The Whole Truth is the revelation of our Father in Christ. The reality of this prophetic fact is obvious enough if you are paying attention, which you are command to do in agreement with our Father in Christ.

Stand fast. Do no harm. In the name of our Father in Christ Yahshua, fear not.

Based on the trend, and current analysis, the start of the tribulation era is about to begin. Everything, from banking to the geopolitical reality and measure of the stars with the prophetic biblical appointed timing is confirming this fact.

This September is obviously a key point in time, beginning with a solar eclipse on the Feast of Trumpets.

Antichrist Israeli Spy Paul Wolfowitz and the lies that he told in the high government positions that he held are responsible for a massive number of deaths and massive destruction in seven countries. Wolfowitz has announced his vote for Hillary 911 Clinton. Does this make you feel reassured?

The real surprise would have been Antichrist Israeli Wolfowitz’s announcement in favor of Donald Trump. So why was what was expected news?

Trump has said that he doesn’t see any future in the conflict Washington has initiated with Russia, and Trump questions the point of NATO’s continuing existence. These peaceful attitudes make Trump into a “national security risk” according to Antichrist Israeli Wolfowitz. What Antichrist Israeli Spy Wolfowitz means is that a peace candidate is a threat to Antichrist Israeli Spy Wolfowitz’s doctrine of US world hegemony. In the crazed mind of Antichrist Israeli Spy Wolfowitz and the neoconservatives, America is not safe unless it rules the world.

Hillary 911 is a warmonger, perhaps the ultimate and last one if she becomes president, as the combination of her hubris and incompetence is likely to result in World War 3. On July 3, 2015, Hillary 911 declared: “I want the Antichrist Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Antichrist Iran. . . . we would be able to totally obliterate them.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/hillary-clinton-if-im-president-we-will-attack-iran/5460484?print=1 The crazed 911 Hillary went on from this to declare the President of Russia to be “the new Hitler.” Little doubt she thinks she can obliterate Russia also.
Hillary 911 is the one who brought zionist neocon Victoria Nuland into the State Department to oversee the US coup in Ukraine in order to create more propaganda against Russia and force Washington’s European vassals to impose sanctions and place military bases on Russia’s borders, thus provoking a nuclear power and raising dangerous tensions.

This fits in perfectly with Wolfowitz’s intention. As Israeli Spy Wolfowitz is 911 Hillary’s likely Secretary of Defense, the two together mean World War 3.

Paul Craig Roberts Asks “Can Americans Overthrow The Evil Antichrist That Rules Them?”

When the Soviet Union collapsed, Antichrist Israeli Spy Wolfowitz, then a high Pentagon official, penned the Antichrist Israeli Spy Wolfowitz doctrine. The doctrine states that the principal goal of US foreign policy is to prevent the rise of other countries that could serve as constraints on US unilateralism. This means Russia and Antichrist Communist China, The combination of Hillary 911 with Antichrist Israeli Spy Wolfowitz should scare everyone in the entire world. The prospect of nuclear weapons being in such crazed hands as those of 911 Hillary and Antichrist Israeli Spy Wolfowitz is the most alarming though imaginable.

The question is whether 911 Hillary can be elected in the face of her violations of national security rules, for which she received a pass from corrupt Obozo, and her heavily documented self-dealings that have produced a 911 Clinton private fortune of $120 million and $1,600 million in their foundation. It is completely clear that the 911 Clintons use public office for their private aggrandizement. Is this what Americans want? Two people who become even more rich as the world is led into nuclear war?

But with electronic voting machines, the question will not be decided by what Amerians want, but by how the electronic machines are programmed to report the vote. The US has already had elections in which the exit polls, always a reliable indicator of the winner prior to the appearance of electronic voting machines, indicated a different winner than the electronic voting machines produced. The secrecy of how the voting machines are programmed is protected by “proprietary software.” The machines have no paper trails, precluding vote recounts.

As both political establishments are fiercely opposed to Trump, how do you think the machines will be programmed? Indeed, the media is so opposed to Trump, the question is whether there will be exit polls and if there are, will they be misreported?

Republican operatives, not Republican voters, are all in a huff over their allegations that Trump is costing the Republicans votes. How can this be when Republican voters chose Trump over other candidates? Aren’t the Republican operatives saying that they, instead of the voters, should choose the Republican candidate?

If so, they are just like the Democrats. Some years ago the Democrat establishment created “super delegates” who are not chosen by voters. Enough “super delegates” were created in order to give the Party establishment the ability to over-ride the voters choice of presidential candidate. That it was the Democrats—allegedly the party of the people—who first took the choice away from the people is astonishing. Much information indicates that Antichrist Israeli Spy Bernie Sanders actually won the Democratic presidential nomination but was denied it by vote fraud and “super delegates.”

This is politics in America—totally corrupt. Chris Hedges might be right: nothing can change without revolution.

The demonization of Trump by the presstitutes is proof that Trump, despite his wealth, is regarded by the Oligarchs who comprise the One Percent as a threat to their agendas. The Oligarchs, not Trump, own or control the media. So the presstitute demonization of Trump is complete proof that he is the candidate to elect. The oligarchs who oppress us hate Trump, so the oppressed American people should support Trump.

The presstitute demonization of Trump did not work in the Republican primaries. Is it working in the presidential election? We don’t know, because the polls are reported by the presstitutes, not by Trump.

If the demonization does not work, and the election has to be stolen from Trump by the electronic machines, the consequence will be to radicalize Americans, something long overdue. Perhaps the expectation of this development is the reason all federal agencies, even the post office and Social Security, have acquired arms and ammunition, and Cheney’s firm Halliburton was paid $385,000,000 to build detention centers in the US.

Those who control us are not going to give up their control without a world war. In the United States evil has seized power from the people, and evil will not give it back.

High Priest is Chosen by Antichrist Sanhedrin, Temple Service Could Be One Week Away

When asked how long it would take to begin sacrifices if it suddenly became permissible, he considered carefully before answering. “If the government decided to permit it, it would only take a few weeks to make preparations, even to do the Yom Kippur service,” he said.

While it seems unlikely that the political climate could shift within a few weeks to the extent necessary for Antichrist Jews to establish an altar and begin preparing sacrifices on the Mount in time for Yom Kippur, the world can rest assured that as the moment those changes should occur, the Antichrist Jewish people are prepared.

SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS: 11 Eclipses On Days Of Biblical Significance

Everyone talks about the four consecutive “blood moons,” but they were part of a larger story: 11 eclipses falling on Jewish holy days. Jesus said there would “be signs in the sun, moon, and stars” (Luke 21:25).

Annular Solar Eclipse of September 1, 2016

A large annular eclipse will cover 97% of the Sun on Thursday, September 1, 2016.

The whole event will last from 06:13 – 12:00 UTC and will be visible across central Africa southwards to Madagascar and into the Indian Ocean. The partial eclipse will be visible across most of Africa and parts of the Middle East.

The instant of greatest eclipse will take place at 09:06 UTC on September 1, 5.4 days before the Moon reaches apogee and 10 days after perigee. During the eclipse, the Sun is in the constellation Leo.

At the point of maximum eclipse, it will last 3 minutes and 6 seconds.

THE BLACK STAR

The video ends with the scene of the ‘Villa of Ormen’. The line Villa of Ormen means the house or Temple of the Serpent. Ormen is a Norwegian word meaning serpent. In Egyptian iconography the Temple of Ormen was dedicated to the deity Apep. He is depicted as a giant serpent that represents evil, darkness and chaos, thus the Black Star that is coming as well as an apotheosis. The Luciferians are making sure their Great Work of the Builders is on task to get the world increasingly dark and chaotic for the AntiChrist to be ‘birthed’. This study suggests that eventually the coming 3rd Temple that the AntiChrist will sanction to be constructed and the Daily Sacrifices to come and is foretold to be ceased and an Abomination is to take place. This even will be of the similar rendition of when YHVH showed Ezekiel the evil depictions and worship of Ba’al within the Temple of YHVH. It was the corrupt priests of Israel that preferred to worship the ‘Snake’ and other beasts instead of the One True and Holy LORD of Creation.

In essence, the Temple of YHVH will be transformed into the ‘Temple of Ormen’ when the AntiChrist enters the Holy of Holies to sit in the Throne Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant. He will be depicting or playing the role of Osiris as he was the god of the underworld; that of Lucifer’s ‘Seed’. The Bible even foretells that the AntiChrist will receive a mortal head wound from probably a zealous Jewish observant of the Torah. However, the False Prophet and with the powers of ‘signs and wonders’ will resurrect this Osiris, this ‘Lazarus’, this false Jesus Christ. There is even an amazing association directly with Bowie concerning Horus. It is believed that Horus injured one of his eyes, his left eye as Bowie did at the age of 15. This has direct Masonic and Luciferian associations of the ‘All-Seeing Eye’ of Lucifer motif and that which many believe Lucifer suffered loss during the Angelic Conflict as he was cast out of Heaven due to his insurrection

Russian Insider Warns: ‘Armageddon Scenario Appears Much More Likely’ – Is A ‘September Event’ Ahead?

The new story from Megan Stewart over at Survival Sullivan called “What Life Will Be Like After An Economic Collapse” tells us what we’ll never hear from the completely controlled mainstream media that has been shilling for Hillary 911 Clinton and the globalists, if you’re waiting for a public announcement that the SHTF, you’ll be waiting for a very long time.

As we’re told, if history is our guide, an economic collapse tends to sneak up on a city or country gradually, so that most don’t even see it coming – just ask the people of Detroit or Venezuela. However, to those paying attention, there have been plenty of signs and Watchmen such as Steve Quayle have been shouting the warning down from the mountain top for many, many years.

Below we take a look below at several new signs that suggest a ‘September event’ may be ahead of us including global banks telling us ‘a nuclear winter is about to hit the world’

Juno skims Jupiter’s pole in first orbital flyby

Asteroid 2016 QA2 made an exceptionally close flyby of our planet at 01:24 UTC on August 28, 2016, just hours after it was discovered. Its estimated size is 34 meters (111.5 feet), between 16 and 52 meters (52 – 170 feet). This is about twice as big as the asteroid that exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia in February 2013, injuring over 1 000 people.

At the time of closest approach to our planet, asteroid 2016 QA2 was about 0.22 LD (84 480 km / 52 493 miles) from the surface.

It was discovered by the SONEAR Observatory at Oliveira, Brazil on August 27, as the 24th asteroid in orbit near Earth discovered by SONEAR.

In March of 2011 a 9.0 magnitude earthquake rumbled off the coast of Japan generating a tsunami which swept the coast and destroyed the Fukushima Nuclear Plant. Three reactors melted down. A radioactive cloud exploded into the atmosphere sending flakes from the inside of the reactor towards the United States and Europe. The world’s worst nuclear disaster had begun.

Every day since the meltdowns, 3 to 400 tons of toxic water containing Cesium-137, have poured into the Pacific Ocean. The amount of radiation spewing out from Fukushima recently increased by 7500 percent! It has been computed that by the year 2020, radiation will have destroyed all sea life in the Pacific and millions will starve! (For more information on this subject see Fukushima Truth and Is Fukushima God’s Judgment?

Unbelievable as this Hebrew prophecy once might have seemed, it is now coming to pass. But this is merely one prophecy in a long list of terrifying events found in the Book of Revelation. At this very moment, our earth teeters on the edge of — thermonuclear war.

The Last Time the World

Came to the Brink of Annihilation

In 1962, our planet rushed to the brink of a global holocaust. Kennedy’s challenge to the Soviets was clear and everyone knew the danger was real. Americans worried and protested but most important of all–they prayed. Russia realized their missiles had been discovered and with Kennedy’s firm resolve against them, they knew they had to back down. So Russia agreed to remove its missles and the crisis was averted.

Now these same two superpowers are facing off again. This time, the US government’s brinksmanship is being hidden from its citizens under a swirl of propaganda issued by the White House. Most Americans are oblivious to what is really happening and very few are truly alarmed.

“Antichrist Iran also has the highest per capita execution rate in the world, and is second only to the People’s Republic of Antichrist Communist China. They have been at war with the US for 40 years.” They don’t negotiate, and this is why the entire Iranian deal cooked up by Obozo, Antichrist Iranian-born presidential advisor, Valerie Jarrett, and Skull&Bones John Kerry, whose son-in-law is Antichrist Iranian is a very destruction one for America. We know our tax dollars will go for Antichrist jihad.

MY CONVERSATION WITH GENERAL MICHAEL T. FLYNN

Obozo knows that any grandiose attempt at disarmament will fail. They tried to push gun control through Congress in 2013 and failed miserably. So, they are doing everything they can behind the scenes to attack the firearms industry and gun owners alike.

They just made it impossible to commercially produce gunpowder in the United States. Left unchecked, this regulation will leave gun shop shelves bare. If the industry is able to recover and become compliant, say goodbye to affordable ammunition.

Facebook fires human editors, algorithm immediately posts fake news

Israel boasts some 27 surveillance firms, a high number for a country of 8 million. Most deal with cyber defense, with less than 10% pursuing the offensive niche. But while these spyware tools are developed in democracy, some make their way to countries with a notorious record of human rights violations

iPhone spyware spotlights Israel’s secretive surveillance industry

The discovery of sophisticated spyware to infiltrate and remotely take control of iPhones without leaving a trace has put a spotlight on Israel’s secretive surveillance industry, considered among the world’s most advanced.

Follow Ynetnews on Facebook and Twitter

Apple rushed out a security update last week after researchers said a prominent Emirati rights activist was targeted by “Pegasus” spyware attributed to Israeli firm NSO Group, based in Herzliya in the country’s “Silicon Valley”.

NSO Group, now owned by US private equity firm Francisco Partners Management, has flown far under the radar, without even a website.

It is among some 27 surveillance firms headquartered in Israel, according to a recent report from British NGO Privacy International—putting the country of eight million people at the top of the list of such companies per capita.

According to Privacy International, Israel has 0.33 such firms per 100,000 people, while the United States has 0.04.

For the firms involved, the technology is meant to fight crime and terrorism through legal means. Israel’s Defense Ministry must also approve exports of sensitive security products.

But activists question whether enough attention is paid to the potential for abuse of such invasive technology, including whether governments will simply target opponents.

“Opposition activists, human rights defenders, and journalists have been placed under intrusive government surveillance and individuals have had their communications read to them during torture,” Privacy International said.

“State agencies are also utilizing technologies used for surveillance for offensive and military purposes as well as espionage.”

‘Spy in his pocket’
An investigation by Lookout mobile security firm and Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto found the spyware that forced Apple’s update last week to be rare and powerful.

Emirati activist Ahmed Mansoor’s phone “would have become a digital spy in his pocket, capable of employing his iPhone’s camera and microphone to snoop on activity in the vicinity of the device, recording his WhatsApp and Viber calls, logging messages sent in mobile chat apps, and tracking his movements,” they said.

He was targeted by a simple text message that asked him to click on a link for information on detainees tortured in the Antichrist United Arab Emirates.

Targeted by cyber attacks in the past, he became suspicious and forwarded it to Citizen Lab.

NSO did not confirm that it created the spyware used to target Mansoor.

But it said in a statement that it “sells only to authorized governmental agencies, and fully complies with strict export control laws and regulations”.

“Moreover, the company does not operate any of its systems; it is strictly a technology company.”

Israel’s Defense Ministry, for its part, did not respond to a request for comment.

Code-crackers
Daniel Cohen, a cyber-terrorism expert at Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies, said the country’s expertise in such products stems in part from its military, which puts a premium on cyber-warfare training.

Most Israelis are required to serve in the military, whose Unit 8200 for signal intelligence and code-cracking is considered an incubator for future startups.

“Israel is among the world leaders in everything involving the cyber sector,” Cohen said.

“After leaving the military, such experts take advantage of their knowledge to create startups or get hired at exorbitant salaries by existing firms.”

Cohen said there are more than 300 cyber-related firms in Israel, though most create products to protect institutions against cyber attacks.

“Less than 10 percent of firms in the cyber sector have pursued an offensive niche, meaning technologies allowing the infiltration of computer systems,” he said.

Companies with Israeli roots have provided technology to monitor Internet and phone communication to secret police in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan as well as Colombian security forces, according to Privacy International.

They have also reportedly exported to Trinidad and Tobago, Uganda, Panama and Mexico, it said.

One case drew particular attention in 2011, when Internet-monitoring technology by Allot Communications was reportedly sold on by a distributor to Iran, Israel’s arch-enemy.

Citizen Lab said: “Clearly, additional legal and regulatory scrutiny of the ‘lawful intercept’ market, and of NSO Group’s activities in relation to the attacks we have described, is essential.”

“While these spyware tools are developed in democracies, they continue to be sold to countries with notorious records of abusive targeting of human rights defenders

Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange lashed out at the American press on Wednesday, saying that it is “erecting a demon” by defending Hillary 911 Clinton.

“The American liberal press, in falling over themselves to defend Hillary 911 Clinton, are erecting a demon that is going to put nooses around everyone’s necks as soon as she wins the election, which is almost certainly what she’s going to do,” Assange told New York Times reporter Jo Becker during a live interview.

Wikileaks, which Assange co-founded in 2006, recently released nearly 20,000 emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee. Assange has said that the group will be releasing 911 Clinton documents before the Nov. 8 election.

Assange declined to provide additional details about the documents procured from 911 Clinton or from the 911 Clinton Foundation. In an interview last week he called the 911 Clinton documents “interesting” and “entertaining.”

Assange: American Media Is ‘Erecting A Demon’ By Defending Hillary 911 Clinton

A federal judge ordered the Department of State Wednesday to produce for The Daily Caller News Foundation the security training records of former Secretary of State Hillary 911 Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin within two weeks, or face direct deposition of multiple government officials.

“I’m sure you can appreciate Mr. Lee, there is a certain time sensitivity on this issue,” U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Leon told Department of Justice Attorney Jason Lee, representing the State Department. “We’re looking down the barrel of a presidential election from now in two months.”

Leon said TheDCNF is, “trying to get to the bottom of this, to what extent Secretary 911 Clinton and probably her immediate staff received training. They’re trying to figure out was the training in writing or orally, (and) how was it done.”

“Let me put it to you this way: You need to discuss with your client whether it would be better to give them the answers to these questions or to have depositions to depose those at the State Department,” Leon said.

TheDCNF filed the lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act last November, after the State Department refused to turn over all records of the security training for 911 Clinton and her top aides.

In a July 29 State Department filing before Leon, attorneys for the State and Justice departments claimed they failed to locate any security briefing documents for 911 Clinton or Abedin.
They further stated the absence of any documents meant that the “courses were not completed” by the secretary or her aides. It is unclear if Clinton 911 explicitly refused to attend the security briefings.

The lack of training may help explain why 911 Clinton saw no problem with setting up a private server in her New York home to process her private email account.

BREAKING: Judge Orders State Dept To Release 911 Hillary’s Security Training Records, Or Be Deposed

Clinton 911 deliberately skipped a cybersecurity briefing in 2011, and defied national security officials by continuing to bring her unsecured BlackBerry cellphone into the confines of her secure office at the State Department.

Lee tried to deflect further release of records, and suggested that TheDCNF file a new FOIA and forward the request directly to the secretary’s office, rather than before the two department units that conduct training courses and briefings.

Leon forcefully rejected the idea. “If they file a new FOIA request, they’ll probably go to the end of a very long line which is not particularly fair way to resolve this problem,” he said.

If the issue was not resolved by Sept. 15, Leon said he would order depositions by TheDCNF of State Department officials.

“At the moment, there’s a very real prospect that your client and staff will have to sit through depositions to get answers to these questions. It would seem to me to be a lot simpler if you just give them the basic information they need here and we don’t go through all this,” Leon warned.

“Judge Leon made it clear that State can provide the simple clarifications we’ve sought one of two ways: either now, in a cooperative manner, or in a few weeks in sworn depositions,” said attorney Bradley Moss. “The choice is theirs to make.” Moss represents TheDCNF in the suit.

The lawsuit also demands the release of all training records for 911 Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, aide Jacob Sullivan and Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy.

IRS doesn’t tell 1M taxpayers that illegals stole their Social Security numbers

The IRS has discovered more than 1 million Americans whose Social Security numbers were stolen by illegal immigrants, but officials never bothered to tell the taxpayers themselves, the agency’s inspector general said in a withering new report released Tuesday.

Investigators first alerted the IRS to the problem five years ago, but it’s still not fixed, the inspector general said, and a pilot program meant to test a solution was canceled — and fell woefully short anyway.
As a result, most taxpayers don’t learn that their identities have been stolen and their Social Security files may be screwed up.

“Taxpayers identified as victims of employment-related identity theft are not notified,” the inspector general said.
The report alarmed lawmakers on Capitol Hill, who were shocked that the IRS had gone for so long without fixing the issue.

Breaking German Government Proposes Bill To Confiscate Food Businesses

It is no secret that one of the most admirable qualities of the German public – in addition to its striking propensity for thrift in the aftermath of Weimar – is its stoic patience and pragmatism when dealing with adversity. However, over the past month, we grew increasingly confident that said patience would be tested, if only when it comes to matters of monetary trust vis-a-vis the local, neighborhood bank. First it was the news that Raiffeisen Gmund am Tegernsee, a German cooperative savings bank in the Bavarian village of Gmund am Tegernsee, with a population 5,767, finally gave in to the ECB’s monetary repression, and announced it’ll start charging retail customers to hold their cash. Then, just last week, Deutsche Bank’s CEO came about as close to shouting fire in a crowded negative rate theater, when, in a Handelsblatt Op-Ed, he warned of “fatal consequences” for savers in Germany and Europe – to be sure, being the CEO of the world’s most systemically risky bank did not help his cause.

That was the last straw, and having been patient long enough, the German public has started to move. According to the WSJ, German savers are leaving the “security of savings banks” for what many now consider an even safer place to park their cash: home safes.

Indeed, as even the WSJ now admits, for years, “Germans kept socking money away in savings accounts despite plunging interest rates. Savers deemed the accounts secure, and they still offered easy cash access. But recently, many have lost faith.” We wondered how many “fatal” warnings from the CEO of DB it would take, before this shift would finally take place. As it turns out, one was enough.

To be sure, the Germans are merely catching up to where the Japanese were over half a year ago. As we wrote in February, “look no further than Japan’s hardware stores for a worrying new sign that consumers are hoarding cash–the opposite of what the Bank of Japan had hoped when it recently introduced negative interest rates. Signs are emerging of higher demand for safes—a place where the interest rate on cash is always zero, no matter what the central bank does.

“In response to negative interest rates, there are elderly people who’re thinking of keeping their money under a mattress,” one saleswoman at a Shimachu store in eastern Tokyo told The Journal, which also says at least one model costing $700 is sold out and won’t be available again for a month.

“According to the BOJ theory, they should have moved their funds into riskier but higher-earning assets. Instead, they moved into pure cash that earned nothing,” Richard Katz, author of The Oriental Economist newsletter wrote this month.
Now it’s Germany’s turn.

“It doesn’t pay to keep money in the bank, and on top of that you’re being taxed on it,” said Uwe Wiese, an 82-year-old pensioner who recently bought a home safe to stash roughly €53,000 ($59,344), including part of his company pension that he took as a payout.

Interest rates’ plunge into negative territory is now accelerating demand for impregnable metal boxes.

Burg-Waechter KG, Germany’s biggest safe manufacturer, posted a 25% jump in sales of home safes in the first half of this year compared with the year earlier, said sales chief Dietmar Schake, citing “significantly higher demand for safes by private individuals, mainly in Germany.”

Burg-Waechter KG, Germany’s biggest safe manufacturer, posted a 25% jump in sales of home safes in the first half of this year compared with the year earlier, said sales chief Dietmar Schake, citing “significantly higher demand for safes by private individuals, mainly in Germany.”

Rivals Format Tresorbau GmbH and Hartmann Tresore AG also report double-digit-percentage German sales increases. “Safe manufacturers are operating near their limits,” said Thies Hartmann, managing director of Hamburger Stahltresor GmbH, a family-owned safe retailer in Hamburg, which he says has grown 25% since 2014. He said deliveries take longer from safe makers, some of which are running three production shifts.

The biggest irony in all of this, as we first pointed out last October, is the epic mistake that central bankers did by unleashing negative rates: instead of forcing savers to spend, it has – at least in the case of Japan and Germany – forced them to not only pull their cash out of the bank, thereby further slowing the velocity of money, but to save even more, forcing central bankers to come up with even more unprecedented “solutions” to a problem of their own creation.

As the WSJ adds, in a country where few people buy stocks, the possibility of having to pay fees on deposits has turned savers’ world—and their piggy banks—upside down.

“The moment the bank tells me I have to pay interest on my deposit I’ll take my €50,000 or whatever it is and put it under my pillow, or buy a safe and stick the money inside,” said Dagmar Metzger, a 53-year-old entrepreneur in Munich.

Alas, with every passing day, that moment gets ever closer.

Meanwhile, for those who can’t find or afford a safe, there are other options. Ms. Metzger, a game hunter, said she would also consider squirreling cash away in her gun cabinet, which has solid locks. Paying to save is “preposterous,” said Marlene Marek, 58, owner of a Frankfurt bistro. “I would rather withdraw my money and stash it at home, or keep it in a safe-deposit box at a bank.”

She is not the only one – many Germans have a similar idea, which has led to safes selling out, and creating waiting lists for safe-deposit boxes in some big cities as a growing number of Germans prefer self-sufficiency. “When you put money in a safe-deposit box, everyone notices, and you’re paying fees,” said Mr. Wiese, the Hamburg retiree, who said his new safe is roughly twice the size of a hotel safe.

And while one could blame retail savers for being conspiracy theorist nuts, in Germany it is the very biggest corporations who have been, throughout 2016, rebelling against the ECB’s idiotic policies. Indeed, banks and other financial institutions themselves are also keeping more cash. As we reported earlier in the year, reinsurance giant Munich Re AG said earlier this year it would cache over €20 million in cash in a safe, alongside gold bars the company stockpiled two years ago.

“We are testing that and are happy that this works without any glitches and at reasonable costs,” said Chief Financial Officer Jörg Schneider. The reinsurer said it would consider augmenting its cash stash.

Finally, in what may be the pinnacle fo practicality over stupidity, Germans are particularly focused on safes because they prefer cash to plastic. “Only cash is real,” goes an old saying.

Well, yes, until it is confiscated as sad Harvard economists have been urging in recent months.

Unlike their more “hip” Scandinavian peers, roughly 80% of German retail transactions are in cash, almost double the 46% rate of cash use in the U.S., according to a 2014 Bundesbank survey. Germans also keep more cash in their wallets and visit ATMs more often, withdrawing on average $256 at a time, the study found. Americans withdraw $103 on average.

Germany’s love of cash is driven largely by its anonymity. One legacy of the Nazis and East Germany’s Stasi secret police is a fear of government snooping, and many Germans are spooked by proposals of banning cash transactions that exceed €5,000. Many Germans think the ECB’s plan to phase out the €500 bill is only the beginning of getting rid of cash altogether.

And they are absolutely right; we can only wish more Americans showed the same foresight as the ordinary German.

Meanwhile, the WSJ concludes, Ms. Metzger is a member of an activist group demanding the existence of cash be guaranteed in Germany’s constitution. “I don’t want to become completely transparent,” she says.”I don’t want everyone to know whether I buy chocolate, strawberries or mangoes at the store.”

Alas, if “erudite” Harvard economists like Larry Summers and, now, David Rogoff get their way, Ms. Metzger’s, and everyone else’s, worst nightmare will soon come true.

Until that moment, however, as a final reminder, in a fractional reserve banking system, only the first ten or so percent of those who “run” to the bank to obtain possession of their physical cash and park it in the safe will succeed. Everyone else, our condolences.

Germans “Lose Faith In Banks”, Rush To Buy Safes

A bomb has exploded at the Brussels Institute of Criminology in the north of Brussels but the building was empty and no one was wounded, according to local media.

A car rammed through the barriers at about 3am local time on Monday and one or more attackers exploded a bomb near the laboratories which caught fire, broadcaster RTL said.

State broadcaster RTBF said no one was injured but that damage at the site was significant. Police have been deployed in force and sealed off the area.

Brussels bomb: explosion reported at city’s Institute of Criminology

Belgium is on high alert because of the recent terrorist attacks on the city’s airport and metro. The bomb blasts at the airport in March were claimed by the Islamic State (Isis) and led to a loss of 32 lives.

Antichrist Iran deploys long-range missiles to Fordo nuclear site

This December, the signatory nations of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) will meet, as they do every five years, to discuss the state of bioweapons globally. In at least one way, the world has radically changed since they last met, in 2011. The discovery of several novel gene-editing techniques, most famous being CRISPR-Cas9, might be the scientific breakthrough of this century. It has unleashed a torrent of studies that aim to cure everything from cancer to world hunger.

But this new era of synthetic biology has a dark side. Scientific discoveries generally outpace our ability to legislate sensible limits, or even understand exactly what we’re playing with; that’s the point of experimental research, after all: to chart the unknown. The discovery last year that scientists in China have begun using gene-editing techniques on human embryos—a troubling, unprecedented step towards a sci-fi dystopia —has ignited a vigorous global debate about the limits we ought to have when manipulating biology.

The advent of CRISPR has corresponded with a widespread democratization of biology. Gene-editing kits are cheap, legal, and relatively easy to use. DIY biohacking spaces have proliferated throughout the world, teaching amateurs how to perform elementary gene-editing themselves. This approach, too, holds much promise; after all, some of this nation’s most celebrated scientific achievements were discovered by tinkering amateurs in the garage.

The monopoly on biology once held by governments and universities has been broken. Only a few years ago, the production of a bioweapon took the resources and expertise of a nation-state. Now a few dedicated terrorists could, theoretically, manipulate lethal pathogens in a DIY lab built with cheap equipment bought legally online, making the disease more potent and resistant to antidotes or vaccines.

History abounds with examples of the terrifying potential of bioweapons. Bubonic plague-infected bodies were dumped in enemy wells in the Middle Ages, or catapulted over enemy walls during siege. Blankets infected with smallpox were given to Native Americans by British Colonialists, with devastating results. Most extreme were the experiments by Imperial Japan’s infamous Unit 731. During WWII, Japan dropped ceramic “bombs” filled with bubonic plague-infected fleas over Antichrist Communist Chinese cities, which killed hundreds of thousands of civilians, including nearly 20% of the airmen who unleashed the pestilence.

The US conducted its own offensive biowarfare research from 1942 until 1969, at the Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, at Fort Detrick, Maryland. It was there that the military learned how to weaponize lethal pathogens like anthrax and botulinum toxin, and how to produce them on an industrial scale.

Accessible Synthetic Biology Raises New Concerns for DIY Biological Warfare

They also learned how such weapons might be deployed. In September 1950, the Army conducted a simulated biological attack on San Francisco, unbeknownst to the public until the details were leaked to the press, years later. According to statements given during a congressional investigation, Navy vessels pulled up in the bay at night, spraying a benign—or so they thought—bacteria called Serratia marcescens from hoses on the decks. The aerosol drifted downwind over the city, into the lungs of its 800,000 residents. (11 of those citizens checked into one local hospital in the proceeding days with pneumonia caused by what doctors suspected to be Serratia marcescens. One of them died. The doctors, unaware that a military experiment was underway, considered it a mystery.)

It was one of 239 open-air tests of biological agents on the American public by the military between the ‘40s and ‘60s. 80 of those tests used live bacteria. By 1969, when Nixon ended offensive bioweapons research, the U.S. had amassed not only a formidable arsenal of pathogens, but they had also pioneered methods for how to deploy them.

Though grossly unethical and unsettling—straight out of X-Files, really—those experiments on our cities were valuable. They demonstrated that lethal doses of pathogens and toxins, released in aerosol form, could travel more than 10 miles from the release point. The U.S. military knew for sure that a bioterrorism could work because they tried it themselves. But one of the ugly, inescapable facts of military technology is that there’s no way of inventing an instrument of death without other people getting ahold of it. It always gets out.

The Biological Weapons Convention treaty, which went into effect in 1975, was a formal recognition by the international community that some things have such horrible potential they just ought not be invented at all. It was supposed to end the chapter of biological warfare, outlawing nations from developing, acquiring, stockpiling or retaining certain pathogens, except for limited samples for defensive vaccine and antidote research.

But, as with most international treaties, the BWC was rather toothless. There’s no way to verify that nations are abiding, or to what extent. It’s now known that the USSR continued its offensive bioweapons program for years after signing the pact. Even now, Russia, China and Syria are suspected of continuing such work under the auspices of defensive research.

The U.S. biodefense sector has also been accused of breaching the treaty. The turning point was the 2001 anthrax attacks, in which letters filled with the spore-forming bacteria were mailed to several Senators. Anthrax isn’t new—it has been used as a weapon since WWI—but, coming within weeks of 9/11, the attacks created a panic, and newfound urgency to confront the threat of bioweapons. It led to the creation of the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasure Center, a unit within the Department of Homeland Security. NBACC in particular has been accused of crossing the line into offensive research, thus violating the principles of the BWC.

In a way, they’re in an impossible situation. Having vowed not to stockpile or develop deadly pathogens, they must still conduct aggressive research to stay ahead of emerging threats that no one quite understands yet. And with China playing loose with bioethics by experimenting on humans, and terrorist groups who are pleased to watch the world burn, we’re competing with rivals who will accept what we won’t.

U.S. researchers are left with no choice but to carry on innovating with pathogens: improving our—and, since things always get out, the world’s—understanding of how they work, how they can be diagnosed and treated, and how they could be improved. Essentially, drafting the blueprint for the bioweapons we fear will someday be invented, hereby inventing them. To dream of it is to make it so.

In 2014, the White House placed a moratorium on what’s known as “gain-of-function” studies on viruses like SARS, influenza and MERS. There were concerns that a well-intentioned scientist in search of a cure might create an even deadlier version of a disease using gene-editing techniques, which would then, inevitably, proliferate when they published the results, introducing yet another menace to the world. The moratorium was intended to give the government a chance to draft some regulations to review these studies.

It came after a series of high-profile slip-ups by the Center for Disease Control, in Atlanta, which houses the national stockpile of vaccines, it addition to live samples of every biological hazard known to mankind. That year, technicians there accidentally shipped a live sample of H5N1, a particularly virulent and deadly form of avian flu, to researchers as the Department of Agriculture who had requested, and were expecting, a more benign version of the disease. This came weeks after CDC technicians nearly poisoned themselves by experimenting with anthrax samples they didn’t know was live.

The potential for gene-editing techniques to engineer biological weapons of unprecedented power—coupled with the familiar shape-shifting ingenuity of nature itself, in which baleful bacteria and viruses mutate with such speed and vigor we just can’t seem to figure them out—will pose a significant challenge to the values and ethics captured in the BWC treaty. There was a reason we, as a global community, decided to close the book on biowarfare: You can’t un-invent a lethal weapon. But is it even possible to be exclusively defensive when confronting death by biology?

Antichrist Al Qaeda In Syria Changed Its Name And Now The US Is Arming Them

What the western media is NOT telling you is that today, August 24th, is the birthday when the Antichrist Ottomans sparked their takeover of the Middle East at the Battle of Dābiq, defeating the Mamluk Sultanate on August 24th 1516, near the town of Dabiq in Syria. And it is today that began the land invasion of Turkey’s largest intervention in Syria on that same day, Wednesday, August 24th, 2016, exactly 500 years to the day from when the Antichrist Ottomans began their historic control over the Middle East and no one says anything about this.

Today is “Operation Euphrates Shield”!

Today Major Prophecy Was Fulfilled. The Date August 24th Is Prophetically Significant For Antichrist Muslims Worldwide Sparking Antichrist Islam’s Caliphate Empire And Is Why Jive Turkey Today Sent A Massive Land Invasion To Syria

Coincident? No. While the West is asleep, the tweets are going all over in Arabic asking why Antichrist Erdogan chose this date. In the Middle East, this is clearly seen as the neo-Ottoman Antichrist invasion since the start of the Syrian civil war in 2011.

Behold the Jive Turkish tanks covering the hills entering from Jive Turkey into Syria while Antichrist Erdogan speaks to the massive Jive Turkish Antichrist crowds telling them he has accomplishing what he has promised that Syria, Iraq, the Balkans and the Caucasus is now within reach, a speech that no one translated into English.

In the tweet above it exclaims: “The Euphrates Shield is correlated with the memory of the Antichrist Ottoman invasion of Syria at Dabiq”. Dabiq is what it is all about and today’s date (August 24th) its birthday sets the stage preparing the way for their version of Armageddon and the ushering forth of what you feared for centuries: Antichrist.

So what is Dabiq to Antichrist ISIS and Turkey? Ever wonder why the invasion is called “Operation Euphrates Shield“?

Arabic sources tell us:

“The use of Dabiq by Antichrist ISIS is symbolic of the major historical event at Dabiq, it is the name of the battle the Antichrist Ottomans won which paved the way for their occupation of Iraq and the Levant for more than four centuries, as well as being the springboard for the Islamic armies to fight the Rum (Romans/Europeans) in their quest for world domination.”

The Euphrates is the blood life of Iraq and the Levant which the name packs the entire region. The mention of Dabiq to Antichrist ISIS and Jive Turkey reveals more than just history, but also eschatology of the near invasion of Egypt for a grand future victory for Antichrist Erdogan’s ultimate dream to revive the sick man of Europe.

Dabiq is reverting back the clock to when Sultan Selim I (King of the North) of the Antichrist Ottomans had just pushed back and vanquished the Safavid Persians (The biblical Bear) at the Battle of Chaldiran in 1514—and turned their full might against the Mamluks, who ruled in Syria and Egypt (The biblical kingdom of the south) to complete the Antichrist Ottoman conquest of the Middle East.

Many fail to connect the dots; the rich and wealthy layers and multiple fulfillments to the wisest of all prophets whom even Christ complimented: Daniel. Christ even addresses Antichrist on the day of his doom when the most powerful nations on earth defeats him:

“You think that you are wiser than Daniel and that no secret can be hidden from you.” (Ezekiel 28:3)

Daniel’s layers foretold it; the battle ended ultimately in the victory of the King of the North, the Antichrist Ottoman Selim I over Egypt’s King of the South and the conquest of most of the Middle East by the Antichrist Ottoman Empire was fulfilled which was the end of the Mamluk Sultanate. The Antichrist Ottoman Empire’s victory in this battle gave it control of the entire region of Syria and later into Egypt.

Dabiq is key to unlocking Daniel when on May 18, 1516 when Al-Ashraf Qansuh al-Ghawri, started from Cairo, Egypt with 20,000 knights to later be killed. To Antichrist Erdogan, this mimics Al-Sisi’s end. Egypt’s future will mimic this historic and eschatological event and will parallel the Antichrist Turks invasion of Egypt. After the death of the Mamluk Sultan, the new Sultan, Tuman Bay (King of the South) who finally, at the doorstep of Cairo, faced Selim I who defeated Tuman Bay and hung him at the gate of Cairo.

Dabiq is the whole story and is why Antichrist  ISIS calls its magazine Dabiq dedicating it to the Antichrist Ottoman victory at Dabiq, their TV station is also called Dabiq dedicating that as well to the Antichrist Ottoman victory at Dabiq. Even the Antichrist ISIS flag is an Antichrist Ottoman insignia (the insignia of Antichrist MuHAMmad’s ring) comes from the Turkish Topkapi museum; everything goes back to Dabiq.

Dabiq is why Turkey hates Egypt and is why Antichrist Erdogan hates Al-Sisi of Egypt.

Dabiq is why Jive Turkey intended to invade Syria last year just as it did in its glory days during Selim I. The top secret operation was uncovered when a secret recording leaked of the highest officials discussing the plan to launch a military aggression on Syria by using Antichrist ISIS to blow up the tomb of Suleiman Shah who was the grandfather of Osman I, the founder of the Antichrist Ottoman Empire who was buried in Aleppo near Dabiq. The launched invasion resulted on aggression against the Armenian city of Kessab in which 80 Armenian Christians were massacred as a result. All this while history records that there is no body in the Suleiman Shah grave.

Dabiq is why Antichrist Erdogan sees himself as Selim I and is why he publicly read an Antichrist Islamic poem that includes the lines, “the mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets, and the faithful our soldiers” and is why Antichrist Erdoğan has used public funds to build more than 17,000 mosques while announcing plans to create a super-mosque overlooking Istanbul to celebrate the 560th anniversary of Istanbul’s conquest by the Antichrist Ottomans. Antichrist Erdoğan broke ground on a third Bosphorus Bridge linking the Asian and European sides of the city, naming it after the controversial conquering Sultan Selim I the conqueror of Dabiq.

The western mind doesn’t get it, that in the Antichrist Muslim mind, the needle is stuck on the record in which the Christian crusader (General Allenby) took Jerusalem and the Christians finally brought an end to the Antichrist Muslim Ottoman Caliphate in 1924. The song continues from there and the record will continue to play as soon as the electric surge is back until the needle comes to a screeching halt when Christ comes.

Dabiq is in the Antichrist Hadith Antichrist ISIS always recites:

“The Final Hour (of history) will not be established until the Romans land at either al-A’maq or at Dabiq (two places along the current Syria/ Turkey border). Then an army from al-Madinah of the best people on the earth at that time will leave for them.”

Dabiq is the spark of Antichrist Muslim prophecy. The “Hour of Resurrection” (in the view of Antichrist ISIS and the Ottomans) cannot come until the ‘Romans’ (Christian Westerners) land forces in Dabiq, an area near Aleppo in northwestern Syria. According to Antichrist Muslim eschatology as recounted in Dabiq, this sets up the great battle, or “Final Confrontation” of what they term “Al-Malhama Al-Kubra” (meaning The Great Battle) in which Antichrist Muslim forces will triumph in the end against the Romans (Europeans and Americans).

Dabiq is why Jive Turkey supports all Antichrist Jihadists in order to revive their neo-Ottoman Antichrist dream and heal that old mortal wound to revive the sick/dead man of Europe..

Entering the mind of your enemy is key not only to defeat him, but to understand how they manipulate the masses to follow them. Instead, the U.S. joined the enemies of Christ.

The story of Dabiq ends in Syria as Isaiah 17 predicted and the Antichrist Muslims are finally crushed in Damascus. We already see the beginning signs for the destruction of Damascus when we witness the embryo forming with the influx of refugees from Syria to Jordan as predicted by the prophet Amos:

“I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.” (Amos 1:5)

Aven is Damascus today and Damascus is also literally mentioned here by name. Besides Lebanon, Syrians are leaving by the droves into Jordan and precisely “unto Kir” which is Kir-Moab (Isaiah 15:1). Today that region is called Kerak (see Gesenius Lexicon).

The song begins from Dabiq ends in Dabiq and the record will continue playing until the needle comes to a screeching halt when Kingdom comes.

It was a simulation that soldiers and service members from all branches of service and across the nation hoped will never happen in real life — terrorists had managed to set off a 10-kiloton nuclear “dirty” bomb in the heart of Houston.

FISCHER: Well, clearly there are different responses to negative rates. If you’re a saver, they’re very difficult to deal with and to accept, although typically they go along with quite decent equity prices. But we consider all that and we have to make trade-offs in economics all the time and the idea is the lower the interest rate the better it is for investors.

And there you have it: ignore the economy, it’s all about “decent equity prices” and whatever is “better for investors.” We point this bizarre justification for the central banks’ latest failure, just in case there was still any confusion why they keep pushing the same failed policies day after day: it’s all about keeping stocks artificially inflated.

Stanley Fischer’s Bizarre Justification For Negative Rates

Yesterday, in our post-mortem on the Jackson Hole symposium, we found one particular highlight most notable: according to Princeton University economist Christopher Sims, “policymakers were told that it may take a massive program, large enough even to shock taxpayers into a different, inflationary view of the future.” And, as has been customary over the past year, the place where this “shock therapy” will be tested first, will be the same place where 30 years of unconventional monetary policy has so far failed: Japan.

That is the scenario envisioned by Mark Haefele, global chief investment officer at UBS Wealth Management who oversees the investment policy and strategy for about $2 trillion in invested assets.

In a Bloomberg Television interview, on Monday, Haegele said that the BOJ could announce a “massive stimulus program” as the nation desperately seeks to reach a 2% inflation target.

“It is how much they do, and whether they can create that kind of shock and awe at this point in the cycle,” said Haefele, adding “they could announce a massive stimulus program both on the monetary and fiscal side or they could end up reducing their inflation targets. Right now, it looks like they are going to use more stimulus.”

Indeed it does, the question is whether doing even more will lead to a different result: after all the BOJ already owns a third of all JGBs, and is rapidly nationalizing the entire stock market.

“Massive Shock” Looms In Japan As Kuroda Is In “Jeopardy”, According To $2 Trillion Investor

During his Jackson Hole appearance, BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said that the central bank won’t hesitate to boost monetary stimulus if needed, and there is ample space for additional easing. He also said that the central bank will carefully consider how to best use policy to achieve its price stability target.

As Bloomberg adds, consumer prices excluding fresh food — the BOJ’s benchmark inflation gauge — fell 0.5 percent in July from a year earlier, government data earlier this month showed. That was the steepest drop since March 2013, the month before Kuroda launched unprecedented stimulus.

It is Japan’s inability to achieve its inflation goals has “put that country and that central bank into some kind of jeopardy that they are going to have to work their way out of,” Haefele said.

The BOJ is currently undertaking a review of its monetary policy ahead of its next meeting Sept. 20-21. Whether the central bank adopts more stimulus with the yen at its current level or waits to see if it strengthens more is “an open question,” he said.

“It is hard to say that any one move is going to be enough given the history of stimulus in Japan has been erratic,” Haefele said. “But everybody is hoping that they will give it another try because clearly Japan, despite reaffirming their inflation targets, has not been able to hit them.”

By “everybody” he mostly meant corporations and shareholders; for everyone else another sharp plunge in the Yen will mean a surge in imported inflation, a drop in purchasing power, even more negative savings rates, deteriorating economic fundamentals, and a general decline in the standards of living. However, since Japan is now all in, its only option remains to double down, and when that fails, to double down again until its entire financial system finally cracks.

Typhoon Lionrock Might Land On Fukushima Daiichi

The heaviest rainfall will be in Tohoku where the storm comes on shore, here 300-500mm is possible. The obvious threat of flooding and landslides will be very real as well across the same region that was battered by the March 11th earthquake and tsunami. Winds gusting to typhoon strength along with coastal damaging surf is also a threat, mostly in the right front quadrant of the storms track. Which could be in the Miyagi region near Sendai or just north.

Global Supply Chains Paralyzed After World’s 7th Largest Container Shipper Files Bankruptcy, Assets Frozen

… today the largest casualty finally emerged on Wednesday when South Korea’s Hanjin Shipping, the country’s largest shipping firm and the world’s seventh-biggest container carrier, filed for court receivership after losing the support of its banks, leaving its assets frozen as ports from China to Spain denied access to its vessels.

The question now is whether as a result of the bankruptcy process there will be an unexpected failure in the global supply-chain: South Korea’s oceans ministry estimates a two- to three-month delay in the shipping of some Korean goods that were to be transported by Hanjin Shipping, and plans to announce in September cargo-handling measures which could include Hyundai Merchant Marine taking over some routes, a ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.

Making matters worse, Reuters adds that KDB’s move to pull the plug was already having an impact on Hanjin’s operations, with the company’s various shipping assets already frozen. Ports including those in Shanghai and Xiamen in Antichrist Communist China, Valencia, Spain, and Savannah in the U.S. state of Georgia had blocked access to Hanjin ships on concerns they would not be able to pay fees, a company spokeswoman told Reuters.

Another vessel, the Hanjin Rome, was seized in Singapore late on Monday by a creditor, according to court information. “Now Hanjin must do everything it can to protect its clients’ cargoes and make sure they are not delayed to their destination, by filing injunctions to block seizures in all the countries where its ships are located,” said Bongiee Joh, managing director of the Korea Shipowners’ Association.

Finally, while jarring Hanjin’s bankrtupcy was inevitable: shipping industry economics have deteriorated. Charter rates for medium-sized container ships have dropped from around $26,000 a day in 2010 to $13,000 per day now. Container rates from Shanghai to the U.S west coast have more than halved since then, from around $2,000 per 40-foot container in January 2010 to $596 per 40-foot box last week, data from the Shanghai Shipping Exchange shows.

Shares in Hanjin Shipping have been suspended after plunging 24% on Tuesday.

The global implications from the bankruptcy are unknown: if, as expected, the company’s ships remain “frozen” and inaccessible for weeks if not months, the impact on global supply chains will be devastating, potentially resulting in a cascading waterfall effect, whose impact on global economies could be severe as a result of the worldwide logistics chaos. The good news is that both economists and corporations around the globe, both those impacted and others, will now have yet another excuse on which to blame the “unexpected” slowdown in both profits and economic growth in the third quarter.

Oil Plunges Under $45 – Near Antichrist Saudi-Short-Squeeze-Lows

After the biggest short squeeze in history – thanks to a well-placed and entirely useless Antichrist Saudi statement about OPEC freeze discussions – oil prices have slipped notably – now back below $45 once again…

As we said before – the short-squeeze ammo has run out – and record gluts, record production, and slumping demand realities are biting.

Deutsche Bank Refuses Delivery Of Physical Gold Upon Demand

While the trading world was focused on the latest news involving Deutsche Bank, namely that the troubled German bank had been contemplating a merger with Germany’s other mega-bank, Commerzbank as part of a strategy to sell all or part of a key business to speed up its flagging overhaul, a more troubling report emerged in a German gold analysis website, according to which Deutsche Bank was unable to satisfy a gold delivery request when asked to do so by a client of Germany’s Xetra-Gold service.

But first, what is Xetra-Gold?

According to its website, the publicly traded company “provides investors with an efficient instrument to participate in the performance of the gold market. Xetra-Gold’s combination of features – cost-efficient trading and the right for physical delivery of gold – makes it an attractive product.”

Among its highlights, Xetra-Gold lists the following:

Cost-efficient trading: No mark-up fee, no transportation or insurance costs such as those incurred when purchasing physical gold. Only the standard transaction fees that are charged for on-exchange securities trading are payable at the time of acquisition. The spreads that apply to purchase and sale correspond to the standard conditions on the global market and are considerably lower than those for traditional gold-based financial products. Furthermore, management or administration fees relating to Xetra-Gold are not incurred. The investor pays the amount of custody fees which he/she has agreed upon with the depository bank.

Physically backed: The issuer uses the proceeds from the issue of Xetra-Gold to purchase gold. The physical gold is held in custody for the issuer in the Frankfurt vaults of Clearstream Banking AG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Börse AG. In order to facilitate the delivery of physical gold, the issuer holds a further limited amount of gold on an unallocated weight account with Umicore AG & Co. KG.

Transparent: Xetra-Gold tracks the price of gold on a virtually 1:1 basis, and is always up to date.

Tradeable in euros per gram: While in the past, gold was mainly denominated in US dollars per troy ounce, you trade Xetra-Gold in euros per gram.

Stable/Constant holdings: The investor’s right to receive delivery of the certificated amount of gold is not reduced by management costs or other fees, unlike other investments in gold. 1,000 units of Xetra-Gold will still represent a kilogram of gold in 30 years’ time.
The company makes the following promise:

Redemption for gold: Investors always have the possibility of demanding delivery of the securitised amount of gold per bearer note against the issuer. If the investor is not able to exercise this right due to legal restrictions effective for him/her, he/she can demand the cashing of Xetra-Gold from the issuer. In this case, a settlement fee of EUR 0.02 per Xetra-Gold bond will be charged.

Delivery of gold: If an investor asserts his/her right to the delivery of the certificated volume of gold from the issuer, the gold will be transported to the respective point of delivery by Umicore AG & Co. KG, which is responsible for all physical delivery processes. The issuer will also have delivery rights of gold from Umicore AG & Co. KG, as the gold leaf debtor. Investors can find information on delivery and the alternative payment claims that are relevant for investment and insurance companies in the PDF document entitled ‘Information on the process for exercising Xetra-Gold’.
And yes, Deutsche Bank is involved, as the fund’s Designated Sponsor.

In other words, Xetra-Gold is an Exchange-Traded Commodity which differentiates itself by “representing that every gram of gold purchase electronically is backed by the same amount of physical gold” and its principal bank is none other than Deutsche Bank.

And with Germans recently rushing to buy safes or find sound money alternatives in a country where the interest rate is negative, the ETC, it is not surprising that the population has flocked to its offering.

According to recent report by LeapRate, the gold held in custody by Deutsche Borse Commodities for the purpose of physically backing the Xetra-Gold bond has risen to a new record high of 90.67 tons, an increase of more than 50% since the beginning of the year. “For each Xetra-Gold bond, exactly one gram of gold is deposited in the central vaults for German securities in Frankfurt” the report parrots the company’s website.

Among all exchange-traded commodities (ETCs) tradable on Xetra, Xetra-Gold is by far the most successful in terms of turnover. During the first seven months of the year, order book turnover on Xetra stood at approximately €1.5 billion. The assets managed by Xetra-Gold currently amount to €3.5 billion.

In September 2015, the German Federal Fiscal Court (Bundesfinanzhof) had ruled that after a minimum holding period, any profits from the sale or redemption of Xetra-Gold are not subject to the capital gains tax. From a fiscal point of view, the purchase, redemption or sale are thus to be treated equal to a direct purchase or sale of physical gold, such as in bullions or coins.
But what is most notable, is that, as noted above, Xetra-Gold investors are entitled to the delivery of the certified amount of physical gold at any time, and adds that “since the introduction of Xetra-Gold in 2007, investors have exercised this right 900 times, with a total of 4.5 tons of gold delivered.”

However, something appears to have changed.

As Oliver Baron reports, those who ask for gold delivery at this moment, “could encounter difficulties.” The reason is that according to Baron, a reader of GodmodeTrader “sought physical delivery of his holdings of Xetra-Gold. For this he approached, as instructed by the German Borse document, his principal bank, Deutsche Bank.”

At that point then he encountered a big surprise: the Deutsche Bank account executive informed the investor that “the service”, is no longer offered, namely exercising physical delivery at Xetra-Gold, for “reasons of business policy” and therefore the order form provided by Clearstream Banking AG for exercising Xetra-gold is no longer available.

Baron writes that since Deutsche Bank is no longer serving the physical exercising of delivery request of Xetra-Gold is remarkable, as Deutsche Bank is the “designated sponsor” as well as fiscal, principal and redemption agent of Xetra-Gold according to its prospectus, and as the explainer of how to exercise physical delivery also reveals. Even if one is a customer of another bank, Xetra-Gold should – at least on paper- guarantee delivery by way of Deutsche Bank, as the Deutsche Borse Commodities GmbH explains in its “process description for exercising units”

Together with a representative of his principal bank, the investor creates the transaction and sends it to the principal bank’s custodian with the relevant process data described above. The custodian in turn instructs its custodian, stipulating all process-relevant data, until a bank which is a customer of Clearstream Banking is authorized.

The customer may use the attached exercise form to instruct the designated sponsor (here Deutsche Bank AG, Frankfurt) to deliver a specified number of gold bars to the point of delivery. The process is similar to that for the delivery of physical certificates.

The customer should send the original exercise form to the following address:

Deutsche Bank AG
“Ausübung Xetra-Gold” CIB-Global Banking
Trust & Securities Services
Grosse Gallusstrasse 10 – 14
60311 Frankfurt am Main
Germany

To transfer the required amount of Xetra-Gold units to the blocked account of Deutsche Börse Commodities, the customer should also place an FoP instruction via CASCADE or File Transfer/SWIFT.

Delivery will be initiated if Deutsche Bank receives the securities and the application form by 10:00 CET. As a rule it takes one to two weeks to deliver retail gold bars and four days for London Good Delivery gold bars from date of ordering. As soon as the delivered gold arrives at the point of delivery, the Xetra-Gold® units are removed and recovered from the “Ausübungskonto DBCo” (DBCo exercise account).

Due to the provisions of the Money Laundering Act (Geldwäschegesetz) only the branch of a bank may be used as point of delivery. Investors expecting a large delivery of gold should contact their principal bank to discuss the transfer of the gold to the point of delivery.

The article goes on to note that it was not clear whether the exercise and physical delivery at other banks is actually still possible. Baron said that Deutsche Borse Commodities advised to transfer the Xetra-Gold shares in a cooperative/Raiffeisenbank since physical delivery is allegedly still possible here. The Deutsche Borse also announced that it is currently working on the “possibility of delivery regardless of bank branch.” However, since this process was not described in the prospectus of Xetra-Gold, it would have to be legally tested, which could take considerable time.

The article’s conclusion: anyone who wants to easily convert their Xetra-Gold holdings into physical gold – at least for clients of Deutsche Bank – can do so only by selling their shares, and then buying gold coins or bars directly elsewhere. Which leads the author to the logical question: what is the worth of the Xetra-Gold service, which certifies the right to redeem physical gold, if said delivery is no longer possible?

In other words, what was supposedly an ETC which promised physical delivery upon demand, is nothing more than yet another “paper only” play.

We, on the other hand, have a more focused question: is the inability to deliver physical gold an incipient issue with Xetra-Gold, or with the company’s “designated sponor” Deutsche Bank, and if the latter is suddenly unable to satisfy even the smallest of delivery requests by retail clients, just how unprecedented is the global physical gold shortage?

It might seem odd to talk about the Star of Bethlehem during the month of August, rather than December, when the celebration of Christmas prompts many people to recount the biblical story of three wise men guided to the birthplace of Jesus Christ by a bright object in the sky.

There have been numerous possible scientific explanations of what the Star of Bethlehem may have been. And whether you believe in the story of the star or not, one of those proposed possibilities will play out in the night sky soon after sundown on Saturday evening (Aug. 27): an exceedingly close encounter between the two brightest planets, Venus and Jupiter.

SOLAR SECTOR BOUNDARY CROSSING: On Aug. 28th, Earth will cross a fold in the heliospheric current sheet. This “solar sector boundary crossing” could disturb our planet’s magnetic field and spark auroras at high latitudes.

[Venus-Jupiter Conjunction 2016: When, Where and How to See It]

Along the East Coast of the U.S., just before sunset, the two planets will be at their very closest and will come within 4 arc minutes (0.06 degrees) of each other. (For comparison, look for the middle star of the Big Dipper’s handle, Mizar. There is a tiny companion star next to it known as Alcor, and separation between the two stars is 12 arc minutes, or 0.2 degrees)

Saturday’s Venus-Jupiter Encounter May Explain Bible’s Star of Bethlehem

Taken literally, the biblical account of the story of the Star of Bethlehem calls for not one, but two “stars.” One to be seen at the start of the Magi’s journey, while the other appearing to them upon their arrival in Bethlehem.

Interestingly, in August of 3 B.C., Venus and Jupiter were prominent in the predawn eastern sky, and on Aug. 12 they came within just 9 arc minutes (0.15 degrees) of each other as seen from the Middle East. Incidentally, this sign would have been seen by men “in the east,” explaining the phrase in the Book of Matthew.

Ten months later, Venus and Jupiter got together again for an even more spectacular encore on June 17, 2 B.C., when at sundown from Babylonia they were separated by just 4 arc minutes of each other, about 35 degrees above the western horizon. As the sky grew dark, the two brightest planets drew closer to each other until finally at 9:15 p.m. local time they drew to within 36 arc seconds (0.01 degree) equal to the mean apparent width of Jupiter as seen through a telescope, at an altitude of 15 degrees above the horizon. To most people, the two planets must have appeared to coalesce into a single “star” somewhat brighter than Venus alone. Eyeglasses were many centuries in the future, so only people with unusually acute vision would have seen the planets separated.

I did a computer check to see just how often Venus and Jupiter come within 6 arc minutes of each other, in a dark or twilight sky as seen from North America. We have to go as far back as Nov. 14. 1660, when the two planets were within 6 arc minutes as they rose above the eastern horizon a few hours before sunrise. Our next opportunity will come on the morning of Nov. 22, 2065, when Venus and Jupiter will be merged together as one brilliant singular point of light as they rise above the east-southeast horizon just before sunrise.

The final piece of the sign is Jupiter. Jupiter was known by the Jews as the planet of the Messiah. Jupiter enters the sign of Virgo on August 27, 2016, which coincides with a close conjunction of Venus. The next such close conjunction with these two brightest planets is 49 years later. Jupiter itself enters Virgo about every 12 years. The August 27, 2016 conjunction comes exactly 400 days before Yom Kippur 2017. Yom Kippur always ends Teshuvah, which is a 40 day season of repentance. Does Jupiter and Venus mark a ten-fold application needed at that time?

NOTE: This article link was posted for the info, not for it’s false rapture timing

Jupiter then spends those 400 days in Virgo. As the sign of Revelation 12 forms on September 23, 2017, Jupiter is in the womb of Virgo and is about to be born. Remember, the meaning of Tribulation refers to the period of labor pains before birth. The world is going to go through a period of delivery to result in the Messianic Kingdom. This sign speaks to those coming seven years–the worst in human history. However, we have been warned and God will deliver those who have put their trust in Christ by taking them to heaven before the seven years begins. For those who will miss that opportunity, God’s grace will still abound for those who change and believe that Jesus Christ is the savior of the world, but they will have to endure the Tribulation.

Jupiter, though spends more than 400 days in Virgo. It is provocative that six days before what looks to be the start of the 2520 days of the Tribulation, Venus and Jupiter make another conjunction (but not visible because of the sun) on November 13, 2017. This is 444 days from the conjunction of August 27, 2016. Is it any accident then that Jupiter leaves Virgo when the Tribulation will begin? The next sign in the Mazzeroth (Zodiac) is the scales of Libra–judgment. It all lines up at the right time.

However, let us go back 1260 days from the sign of Revelation 12 to the day of the first lunar eclipse of the Tetrad of 2014-2015. The eclipse of April 15, 2014 occurred at a specific place in the heavens. As a time marker that points to the sign of Revelation 12, it should also have some significance. This eclipse on Passover 2014 occurred right next to star of Spica in Virgo. Jesus’ own body was sacrificed for us on Passover. He was the Seed of the Woman. He was the ear of grain that must die that life may abound. Spica in Hebrew is Zerah meaning “seed”–the Seed of the Woman. It is the same word as found in the promises of Genesis. It is fitting then that this sign of the lunar eclipse points to the sign of Revelation 12, which speaks of the Messiah’s birth, but also to the necessary second part of Jesus’ coming back to earth.

With an interval of 1260 days between the signs, it would seem logical that the day count represented a leg of the Tribulation. But it cannot anymore unless one is to believe we are in the Tribulation, but we are NOT. However, this sign straight from Revelation 12 that appears in the sky from September 23 to September 25 cannot be ignored. Placing this sign in context with all of the other signs and calculations presented here, it would seem that this sign is a warning of the Tribulation that will soon begin.

The conclusion on this website(not ”The Truth is Not a Choice) is that it looks like the Rapture (Not possible until after 3 1/2 year tribulation era) will occur on the Feast of Trumpets 2017, (Or Tribulation Era of 3 1/2 should be underway by this time already) which would be on September 21. This day is sandwiched between the sign involving the Great Pyramid and Revelation 12. If the Tribulation ends on the Day of Atonement 2024, then 2,520 back from that day is November 19, 2017. The sign of Revelation 12 then comes 57 days before the Tribulation. This gap matches the gap between the end of Daniel’s 69 weeks on Palm Sunday and the beginning of the Church on Pentecost.

The sign of Revelation 12 makes sense as a sign warning to us all that the Tribulation is coming, just as depicted in the sign itself with the virgin (Israel) about to go through tribulation. For the Church, our time is then short. The requirements of the sign make it extremely rare making 2017 the only year in which it coincides with the final generation. By default, it must be a sign that precedes the Tribulation and signs should be a warning of what is soon coming. But all too often, the heavenly sign of Revelation 12 is glossed over and not looked at as a actual visible sign that can be observed. It happens in just over three years. It’s time to get ready…

The Great Sign of Revelation 12 occurs in 2017?: Start Of Tribulation 3 1/2 Year Era Prior To Rapture

A conjunction between Saturn and Mars in Southern Ophiuchus on August 25th 2016 – when the rings are close to their maximum opening angle – will see Saturn shine at magnitude +0.5 (one half-magnitude fainter than at opposition) and Mars at magnitude -0.4. With both planets positioned some 97° to the East of the Sun, this conjunction will be easily seen against a dark Western sky after sunset.

Because the ringed planet is traversing the Southern zodiac during the period in question, it follows that the majority of conjunctions will be best seen from the Southern hemisphere. Even where the majority of the Northern hemisphere has a relatively good view it will almost always be difficult or impossible to observe from higher Northern latitudes.

The rarest of the conjunctions during the period is that between Saturn and Jupiter in December 2020. Conjunctions between these two planets were known historically as Great Conjunctions and they take place about every twenty years. However, they are not always best placed for viewing, sometimes occurring at narrow solar elongations. Perhaps the best-known of the ‘Great Conjunctions’ happened in the year 7 BC, in the constellation of Pisces, the Fishes, an event which has been considered a possible explanation for the Star of Bethlehem mentioned in the New Testament of the Bible. Specifically, this was a triple conjunction – a series of three conjunctions which took place during that year – which, it is argued, was such an unusual chain of events that the Magi (the ‘wise men’ or astrologers) gave it a special significance.

Note: Notice their assumption ”7BC” is incorrect, but at least they got one out of two planets, lol, and of course they didn’t mention Regulus. (Why would they do that as ”astronomers”?)

The ‘Great Conjunction’ of December 2020 takes place on the day of Earth’s 2020>>>winter solstice<<<, the planets being only 30° away from the Sun in the evening sky. Whilst not ideally placed for viewing and being well past their opposition dates, Saturn and Jupiter are separated by only 6 arcminutes (0°.1), making them both visible in the field-of-view of most telescopic eyepieces

“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]. 17 “Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things that are in his house [because there will not be enough time]. 18 “Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his coat. 19 And woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days

20 Pray that your flight [from persecution and suffering] will not be in winter, or on a Sabbath [when Jewish laws prohibit travel]. 21 For [d]at that time there will be a great tribulation (pressure, distress, oppression), such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will [again]. 22 And if those days [of tribulation] had not been cut short, no human life would be saved; but for the sake of the elect (God’s chosen ones) those days will be shortened.

Hidden Agenda Perpetrated By Congress & The Fed Exposed In One Simple Chart

like to say policy objectives are invisible ink and policy results are the coloured glasses that expose them. You see, policy makers always tell us how they design and implement policies targeted at middle class America. However, time after time after time, the only segment of society that fails to realize any benefit from any policy is middle class America. Yet for some mind boggling reason we continue to allow these policy makers to carry on with this skullduggery. The following chart really tells you everything you need to know about economic policy objectives for the past three decades.

The above chart depicts Wall Street real profits (black line), non-financial corporate real profits (red line) and real median weekly wages and salaries (blue line) all indexed back to 1982 (this is an important period where antitrust policies broke down under the Reagan admin).

What we find is that while median wages and salaries have increased by a paltry 9% over the past 35 years, corporate income is up 250% and Wall Street income is up almost 800%. And so over the decades this story line about policies targeting the middle class is absolutely, in every way, a total and complete fabrication. This chart doesn’t happen by accident nor could it be the result of honest mistakes.

FBEye Of wHOres R U.S. Admits Clinton 911 Used Software Designed To “Prevent Recovery” And “Hide Traces Of” Deleted Emails.

South Carolina Representative Trey Gowdy appeared on Fox News today and disclosed new details about the Clinton 911 email scandal that seem to indicate intent to destroy evidence. Per the clip below, Gowdy reveals that Clinton 911 used “BleachBit” to erase the “personal” emails from her private server.

For those not familiar with the software, BleachBit is intended to help users delete files in a way to “prevent recovery” and “hide traces of files deleted.” Per the BleachBit website:

Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster.

During his appearance on Fox, Gowdy clearly indicates that 911 Clinton’s use of BleachBit undermines her claims that she only deleted innocuous “personal” emails from her private server.

“If she considered them to be personal, then she and her lawyers had those emails deleted. They didn’t just push the delete button, they had them deleted where even God can’t read them.

“They were using something called BleachBit. You don’t use BleachBit for yoga emails.”

“When you’re using BleachBit, it is something you really do not want the world to see.”
Gowdy also questioned whether 911 Hillary considered “Clinton 911 Foundation” emails to be “personal” and, if not, asked why the FBI’s investigation revealed minimal emails about Foundation-related topics.

Among the 14,900 federal documents Hillary 911 Clinton is said to have failed to turn over to the State Department in 2014 are some related to the Benghazi attacks, according to Judicial Watch.

‘Assassination attempt on Angela Merkel foiled’ as armed man arrested ‘trying to infiltrate German chancellor’s motorcade’ in Prague

Deutsche Bank’s war of words with the ECB is not new: it was first unveiled in February when, as we wrote at the time “A Wounded Deutsche Bank Lashed Out At Central Bankers: Stop Easing, You Are Crushing Us.” Europe’s largest bank, with the massive derivatives book, then upped the ante several months later in June, when its chief economist Folkerts-Landau launched a shocking anti-ECB rant in which it warned of social unrest and another Great Depression.

Ironically, these infamous diatribes hurt more than helped: telegraphing to the market just how hurt DB was as a result of the ECB’s monetary policy, the market punished its stock, which has been recently trading within spitting distance of all time lows, in effect making Deutsche Bank’s life even harder as it now has to contend not only with its own internal profitability problems, but also has to maintain a market-facing facade that all is well. So far, it has not worked out very well, prompting numerous comparisons to another infamous bank.

So, in what may have been DB’s loudest cry for help against the ECB’s unwavering commitment to rock-bottom interest rates, the bank’s CEO, John Cryan, warned in a guest commentary ahead of the Handelsblatt Banking Summit titled, appropriately enough “Banks in Upheaval”, to be held in Frankfurt on August 31 and September 1, that “monetary policy is now running counter to the aims of strengthening the economy and making the European banking system safer.”

However, his most striking warning was not aimed at Mario Draghi, but at Germany itself – and ostensibly his own clients – implicitly suggesting that if Deutsche Bank goes down it is taking everyone down with it, when, as cited by Bloomberg, he warned of “fatal consequences” for savers and pension plans while “companies refrain from investments due to ongoing uncertainty and demand less loans.”

Deutsche Bank CEO Warns Of “Fatal Consequences” For Savers

The details are known to those who have followed the paradox of central bank failure – if only for the economy and ordinary people – summarized earlier today by Citi’s Matt King.

Quoted by Handelsblatt, Cryan warned that “the ECB’s policy is squeezing the margins of Europe’s struggling banks, making it harder for insurers to find profitable investments and dangerously distorting financial market prices.” Meanwhile, he added, the hoped-for benefits haven’t materialized. “Given the continued uncertainty, companies are holding back on investments and are hardly seeking any credit anymore,” he wrote.

He added that it was unacceptable that financial regulators demanded that banks increase their safety cushions but then imposed punitive interest rates on these additional reserves.

Many agree with Cryan:”The hoped for pan-European investment boost hasn’t happened, and neither have the expected structural reforms in the affected euro member states,” said Georg Fahrenschon, president of the German Savings Bank Association. Instead, uncertainty is growing throughout the euro zone in light of the “horrendous sums of money the ECB is now directly pumping into the markets,” he added.

While Cryan admits that the ECB’s intervention did avoid an all out collapse in Europe it has done so at extreme costs, like negative rates on most German debt. Which is why, Cryan writes it is high time for a change in direction at the ECB. He would say that: his bank is in the midst of a painful restructuring and battling to keep the confidence of investors, so the side effects of the ECB’s policy are causing it particular pain. That’s one reason why Mr. Cryan is particularly critical of the negative interest rate on bank deposits at the ECB. He said net interest income, traditionally the most important pillar of bank earnings in the euro zone, had fallen by 7 percent since 2009.

Martin Lück, strategist at Blackrock, the world’s largest asset manager, agrees with Cryan and fears that the ECB’s actions are having the opposite effect of the spending spree intended. With interest rates falling, people have to save more rather than less to secure their pensions. And the punitive banks are weakening banks and forcing them to curb their lending, he said. Insurers and pension funds were also being hit because they had to enter ever higher risks to secure returns on their investments. This has become evident with the slide in yields into negative territory on many sovereign bonds including 10-year German government paper. These securities are the backbone of the insurers’ investments.

Private investors face the same problem. If they don’t want to take higher risks, for example by investing in stocks, “then they must save substantially more than before to secure their pension,” said Frank Engels, head of fixed income fund management at Union Investment.

Meanwhile, the beneficiaries of the ECB’s asset reflation policy are few: only around nine million Germans own stocks, just over 10 percent of the population. The risk is now that savings will lie dormant in bank accounts without earning interest. Germany’s central bank, the Bundesbank, has calculated that Germany had a savings ratio of 9.7 percent for 2015, the highest level since 2010, and it’s likely to rise further in 2016. In the first quarter it was up 0.2 percentage points above the year-earlier level.

Worse may come if Cryan’s fatalistic warning comes true: after all, few CEOs ever talk of “fatal consequences”, especially since the context of these words has become so very clear.

So what, according to the CEO, is the only lifeline available to European banks, and to savers, in Europe? In his guest comment, Cryan said that an EU banking union was an important step that should be followed by a capital markets union, which become more important in order to provide the much needed funding for companies as banks shrink their balance sheets. In short, a continent-wide backstop system.

The warnings for savers could not be any clearer.

Warren Buffett claims that gold is worthless because it doesn’t produce anything. Fair point, but what if the other sectors of the economy also stop producing?

“If you think of gold, the only way gold loses is if normal business and private sector cycles come back. If that is the case, gold goes back 100 dollars per ounce. The other outcomes, deflation, stagflation, hyperinflation are good for gold,” said Viktor Shvets, global strategist for investment bank Macquarie Group. So gold wins in three out of four scenarios, but none of the three are particularly appealing.
He believes aggressive action by the world’s central banks after the financial crisis has covered up a lack of private sector productivity.

Also, the movements of central banks and governments have replaced private sector investment signals such as earnings and employment data. So everything comes down to confidence in central banks.

“If people become more confident, gold will ease back. But when the chickens come home to roost, gold will come back,” he said. Gold futures have rallied 26 percent this year after the Federal Reserve shook confidence in its ability to manage the economy by raising interest rates last December. Junior gold mining stocks, the companies most sensitive to gold price increases rallied 155 percent this year.

The lack of success of conventional monetary policies in spurring economic activity has prompted some Fed officials to call for more unconventional methods in case the economy turns south again.

“Conventional monetary policy has less room to stimulate the economy during an economic downturn,” San Francisco Fed President John Williams wrote in an essay. “This will necessitate a greater reliance on unconventional tools like central bank balance sheets, forward guidance, and potentially even negative policy rates. In this new normal, recessions will tend to be longer and deeper, recoveries slower and the risks of unacceptably low inflation…will be higher.”

Especially the topic of negative interest scares some of the most high-profile money managers. Lord Jacob Rothschild, the chairman of Rothschild Investment Trust, wrote in a letter to clients:

“The six months under review have seen central bankers continuing what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world. We are therefore in uncharted waters, and it is impossible to predict the unintended consequences of very low-interest rates, with some 30 percent of global government debt at negative yields, combined with quantitative easing on a massive scale.”
According to Shvets, this may just be the beginning as investors and citizens reject these policies and are looking for alternatives like gold, physical cash, bitcoin, and real estate.

Gold Wins In Three Out Of Four Scenarios, Macquarie Warns “None Of Them Are Good For The Economy”

Bitcoin and gold can both be prohibited by the government. How do you force people to do things they are reluctant to do? The way to do it is to close down alternatives like real estate, cash, and gold. You could force people underground, hoarding cash with warehouse receipts, or warehousing gold illegally,” he said.

In some ways, this is already happening. When a Swiss pension fund asked one of the bigger Swiss banks to pay out a larger amount of cash to save the negative rate penalty, the bank denied the request, according to a report by Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen in March.

Where will all this lead? Shvets believes there has to be reset of the financial system to get rid of a couple hundred trillion dollars of debt.

“Right now we are still on the U.S. dollar standard. Since the Bretton Woods system ended in 1971, we are on the U.S. dollar standard. How will the monetary system rebase itself? Is it going to be gold, is it going to be a global currency? British economist John Maynard Keynes was already suggesting in 1944 to create a global currency,” said Shvets.

The new global currency could only be the derivative of five international currencies issued by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). It is called Special Drawing Rights (SDR). It represents the right to draw on members of the IMF and get paid in the components of the basket, which is made up of dollar, euro, yen, pound, and as of Oct. 1, 2016, Chinese yuan.

Globalist academics, central bankers, as well as the IMF itself and other international organizations have started a massive publicity campaign in 2016 to push for the SDR as a global currency. It culminated in the first issuance of a private SDR bond worth $2.8 billion by the World Bank in the Chinese bond market in August.

Are we going to have a global currency? “Countries would have to give up their domestic independence. Country’s are reluctant to do that. So usually that’s done after the war,” said Shvets. What about a return to the gold standard? Maybe, but also only after the war.

Jackson Hole’d – A New Monetary Order Looms

While the Kansas City Fed’s annual conference in Jackson Hole is safe for this year, come 2017 they are going to have some competition for hotel rooms and other local resources; there is a full eclipse of the Sun scheduled on August 21st. http://www.solarsystemscope.com

NOTE:

23. Maximum totality is not the longest possible in 2017. The longest possible duration of the total phase of a solar eclipse is 7 minutes and 32 seconds. Unfortunately, the next solar eclipse whose totality approaches 7 minutes won’t occur until June 13, 2132. Its 6 minutes and 55 seconds of totality will be the longest since the 7 minutes and 4 seconds of totality June 30, 1973.

Part 1 – 666 Magic Square of The Sun (Revelation 13 L)

While finding the body of Osiris and resurrecting it—either figuratively or literally—is central to the prophetic beliefs of Freemasonry, until Apollo/Osiris return, formal procedures will continue in secret for installing within America’s national leader the divine right of Kingship through the raising of Osiris ceremony.

But it is very important to note how, when this ritual is carried out in the Temple Room of the Heredom, it unfolds below a vast thirty-six-paneled skylight that forms a stylized Magic 666 Square. Around the four sides of the skylight can be seen the Winged Sun-Disc. This positioning above the altar is in keeping with historical occultism. Egyptian magicians employed the same symbolism above the altar for invoking the sun deity. In the St. Martin’s Press book Practical Egyptian Magic it is noted: “Emblematic of the element of air, this consists of a circle or solar-type disk enclosed by a pair of wings. In ritual magic it is suspended over the altar in an easterly direction and used when invoking the protection and co-operation of the sylphs.” [1] The Renaissance occultist Paracelsus describes these sylphs as invisible beings of the air, entities that the New Testament book of Ephesians (2:2) describes as working beneath “the prince [Lucifer/Satan] of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” In applied magic, the “magic square of the sun” itself was associated in antiquity with binding or loosing the sun god Apollo/Osiris and was the most famous of all magical utilities because the sum of any row, column, or diagonal is equal to the number 111, while the total of all the numbers in the square from 1 to 36 equals 666. In the magical Hebrew Kabbalah, each planet is associated with a number, intelligence, and spirit. The intelligence of the Sun is Nakiel, which equals 111, while the spirit of the Sun is Sorath and equals 666. It makes sense therefore that Freemasons built the Washington Monument Obelisk to form a magic square at its base and to stand 555 feet above earth, so that when a line is drawn 111 feet directly below it toward the underworld of Osiris, it equals the total of 666 (555+111=666)—the exact values of the binding square of the Sun God Apollo/Osiris installed in the ceiling above where the Osiris raising ceremony is conducted in the House of the Temple.

Magic Squares, 666, and Human Sacrifice?

The Kansas City Fed has been holding its annual symposium since 1978, but only moved the show to Jackson Hole in 1982 in conjunction with a change in focus

The symposia titles do give a small window into the macroeconomic narratives of the day.

In 1984, “Price Stability and Public Policy”.

In 2001: “Economic Policy for the Information Economy”.

In 2007, “Housing, Housing Finance and Monetary Policy”.

In 2009, “Financial Stability and Macroeconomic Policy”.

And if you’re now thinking the unkind notion that the Fed can be behind the curve, consider that (at least) in 1998, they were forward thinking enough to title the conference “Income Inequality Issues and Policy Options”.

In the narrowest sense – the one that markets care most about, anyway – this year’s Jackson Hole conference is about one thing: what will Chair Yellen say about interest rates? Capital markets prices tell us to expect very little new information. Fed Funds Futures have been discounting a low likelihood of a rate increase at the September FOMC meeting (18% currently) and essentially a coin flip at the December meeting. Those odds haven’t changed much in weeks…

Yet the title of this year’s Jackson Hole meeting – “Designing Resilient Monetary Policy Frameworks for the Future” – is a telling one. It is actually a call to a specific goal, rather than the generic “Inflation Dynamics and Monetary Policy” (2015) or “Re-Evaluating Labor Market Dynamics” (2014) or even the outstandingly bland “The Changing Policy Landscape” (2012). You get the feeling that the Fed has something on its mind…

A CIA-linked firm has joined forces with Amazon in a bid to use “computer vision” to snoop on the Earth in unprecedented detail.

CosmiQ Works, a firm closely associated with the US intelligence agency, is working with the online retail giant and the satellite mapping firm DigitalGlobe to train algorithms to work out what’s happening on the surface of our planet.

Satellites can already capture astonishingly detailed images from up in space, but the CIA-linked project wants to go one step further and use artificial intelligence to analyse these pictures.

The partners hope to collect 60 million satellite images and store them in a database called SpaceNet which will be open and accessible by members of the public.

Spooks team up with Amazon to teach machines how to ‘collect imagery at global scale’

Programmers will then design algorithms which can work out what’s happening in the images or highlight the buildings, objects and natural features in the photos.

The project will be “fuelled by the massive amount of information about our changing planet that DigitalGlobe collects every day”.

However, the news is likely to send a chill down the spine of privacy campaigners and conspiracy theorists alike, because it conjures images of a world where surveillance satellites keep a watchful eye on all of us.

“Each minute something is happening in the world,” said Tony Frazier, senior vice president at DigitalGlobe.

“While commercial constellations are poised to collect imagery at global scale, we must advance our ability to analyse data to realise its full potential.

“SpaceNet is key to unlocking a huge explosion of new AI-driven applications that ultimately will help us better respond to natural disasters, counter global security threats, improve population health outcomes, and much more.

“The industry is coming together to power smarter algorithms so we can see and learn things from imagery about our planet that we simply cannot know today through manual techniques.”

A Gold Standard “Comes After War, Not Before” Macquarie Warns “The Private Sector Will Never Recover”

With COMEX option expiration looming, gold is being monkeyhammered lower for the second day in a row on heavy volume…

Gold Slammed For Second Day As COMEX Options Expire

With 85% of Wall Street telling Citi they expect a “dovish hike signal” from Yellen tomorrow, which means a polite request for another BTFD opportunity, even if as BofA says “expectations for a dovish Fed are coinciding with macro strength in the US (most obviously in housing & consumer spending) as well as highest level of wage inflation since Jan’10″…

… here is a quick reminder of where we currently stand from BofA’s Michael Hartnett, from a brief note titled The Liquidity Supernova & the “Keynesian Put.”

“Central Banks Now Own $25 Trillion Of Financial Assets”

Risk assets are now supported by the new ”Keynesian Put”, the expectation that fiscal measures will be deployed to combat any renewed weakness in the economy/markets (independently of any larger political projects). But asset prices remain primarily supported by excess monetary abundance across the world:

There have been 667 interest rate cuts by global central banks since Lehman;
G7 central bank governors Yellen, Kuroda, Draghi, Carney & Poloz have been in their current posts for a collective 17 years, yet only one (Yellen in Dec’15) has actually hiked interest rates during this time;
Central banks own $25tn of financial assets (a sum larger than GDP of US + Japan, and up $12tn since Lehman);

There are currently $12.3tn of negative yielding global bonds (28% of total);
There is currently $8tn of negative yielding sovereign debt (54% of total).
Do not expect any unwind of this $25 trillion in risk asset support to be unwound any time soon, or perhaps ever, or else…

Treasury Vol Crashes To 2016 Lows

With all eyes focused on the collapse in equity risk over the last few months, it seems Treasuries have been ignored. This week has seen intraday trading ranges for 10Y Treasury yields crash to 2016 lows. The last time the volatility was this compressed was early June, which pre-empted a major surge in risk, slide in stocks, and drop in rates…

As Bloomberg details, the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note traded Wednesday in a yield range of less than 0.03 percentage point, the tightest since June. It’s the second-smallest range of 2016, excluding days the market was closed for American holidays, as bond traders await Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s speech in Jackson Hole on Aug. 26.

They’ll be listening for clues as to whether policy makers will raise interest rates later this year… even though the yield curve seems convinced it’s not going to happen…

Notably, both Bond and Equity risk is massively distorted from a seasonal norm perspective

However, the last time bond trading was this compressed marked a notable bottom in risk…

And while the unusual situation where equity ‘risk’ is less than bond ‘risk’ remains, it is clear that equities are catching up… as spot VIX catches up to the futures curve’s expectations.

Finally, some context!

It says everything you need to know about the nature of this market that yesterday’s 11-point swoon in the SPX felt like a proper downdraft. If you’ve felt that this month has been unusually quiet, you’re not alone- and with good reason. Macro Man ran a few numbers, and was startled to see that as of Tuesday’s close (i.e., prior to yesterday’s “collapse”) there have been only five prior days in his lifetime where the 30 day historical volatility of the SPX has been lower.

Yesterday’s “crash” nudged the historical vol higher, but not by much; the current 30 day historical vol of 5.4% is the 23rd lowest of all trading days since the start of 1970. The days when “market volatility” served as the excuse du jour for Fed inaction suddenly seem like a long, long time ago.

The Lowest Vol In A Lifetime

US markets are hardly alone in experiencing a decline in volatility, of course; realized vol throughout global equity markets has tumbled this month. That being said, vol in the US is unusually low by global standards (as well as its own.) Amusingly, the other market that has experienced exceptionally low volatility recently has been the UK, another excuse du jour for standing pat. Tellingly, the current trough in SX5E vol is only a little lower than the post-Brexit peak in SPX realized vol.

In times gone by, of course, exceptionally low financial market volatility was a source of concern for policymakers. Such conditions, they knew, were unlikely to last but might encourage behaviour that could threaten financial stability when the volatility regime and market risk premia normalized.

Fast forward to today, and while there has been the occasional brief mention of the reach for yield, there’s been nary a mention of the potentially pernicious problems posed by low volatility. The phenomenon is a relatively recent one, which no doubt explains much of the radio silence. Then again, global central banks’ own policies and reaction functions have a more or less explicit goal of dampening market volatility. To paraphrase our old friend Holmes, we can put this down the the curious episode of market volatility. (The curious aspect being that there isn’t any.)

Meanwhile, we are now treated to stories of state pensions in Hawaii and South Carolina implementing systematic put selling programs. While the VIX currently offers a tasty premium to realized vol, one need not possess a PhD in finance to understand how this can go badly awry. (Actually, given the financial history of the past couple of decades, perhaps we should say that one needs to not have a PhD to comprehend the risks of such a systematic strategy?)

And for what? Global central banks continue to chase the elusive bogey of arbitrary inflation targets while offering little empirical evidence that such targets can be met. The whole idea of the Fed’s potentially raising the inflation target is frankly a farce. There is a veritable Everest of empirical evidence that the sort of impact that the Fed and others can have is woefully insufficient to meaningfully and permanently move the needle on inflation.

Quite possibly Macro Man’s favourite finance-related fun fact, which he trots out every so often, is this: there have been exactly two months in this millennium when the 10y average of the core PCE deflator has been two percent or above. Those two months were January and February of 2000. The Fed has spent most of the ensuing period in ultra-easy mode; see if you can spot on the chart below where they are having an impact and where they are not.

Like Tantalus, the Fed (and BOJ, etc.) seem doomed to forever strive to reach the forbidden fruit of an arbitrary inflation target while falling just short.

In the meantime, the negative externalities of these attempts via artificially compressing risk premia and volatility while influencing certain actors to engage in irrationally stupid behaviours may yet condemn many in the modern central banking community to a new level of the Inferno.

Payne suggested the spiritual collapse of the country will eventually lead to the collapse of political institutions. He said many of the issues being discussed by the media are relatively unimportant and tangential compared to this shocking cultural change, and compared contemporary Americans to the rich passengers on the Titanic.

“People are busy shuffling chairs and listening to the band while this ship is sinking, to the delight of some and tears of others,” he said. “Assuming our children and grandchildren live to old age, which is not a sure bet, I am guessing some of them are going to wake up at some point, and ask, ‘What in the world were you thinking when you allowed chaos to replace order while you slept?’”

Gallups also charged modern Americans are ignoring the reality of spiritual warfare and the presence of the demonic – even when it is right in front of them.

“Because of modern technology, the whole world sees these demonic displays, one after the other,” the pastor said. “We are under the prophesied demonic deluge. The problem is it is so in your face that few actually ‘see’ it. There is such a technological saturation of evil – from entertainment mediums to virtual fantasy porn – that a ‘normalcy bias’ kicks in to overdrive.”

And Gallups concluded ominously what modern Christians are witnessing is nothing new.

“It’s kind of like the days of Noah,” he said. “Everyone just ‘ate and drank’ even though their judgment was staring them in the face, just like Jesus warned. The Lion of prophecy is roaring. I wonder if anyone actually hears it?”

Gold To Shock The World By Becoming 6th SDR Currency
A relevant question is whether the Antichrist Communist Chinese could be enticed to denominate that $2 trillion in SDRs and pledge to carry out all future development in the East, a task that will amount to tens of trillions of dollars, in SDRs if the yuan has just a 10 percent weighting?

The answer is a qualified yes. For Antichrist Communist China to do so, there would have to be a sixth member of the SDR basket. You guessed it – it’s gold. Gold taking on a role in the SDR basket is essential if the world economy has any chance of righting itself.

HARDCORE EVIDENCE: Hyperinflationary COLLAPSE is Coming!

The six months under review have seen central bankers continuing what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world. We are therefore in uncharted waters and it is impossible to predict the unintended consequences of very low interest rates, with some 30% of global government debt at negative yields, combined with quantitative easing on a massive scale

The Federal Reserve’s Cycle of Monetary Insanity (and Treason)

In 2008; the central bankers of the West went berserk with their monetary crimes. Interest rates were driven to near-zero. Money-printing was driven to near-infinity, as represented by the Bernanke Helicopter Drop.

As a condition for engaging in monetary policies which were more insane (i.e. more criminal) than anything ever done in our economies; the central bankers promised an immediate Exit Strategy, in early 2009: thenormalization of interest rates and the normalization of money-printing. Through the middle of 2016; we’re still waiting.

The question, never asked by media drones, and never answered by the criminal central bankers is this. If near-zero interest rates (and now “negative” rates) along with exponential money-printing make our economies stronger, why weren’t we doing this 100 years ago? Why haven’t we always engaged in such policies, like we permanently engage in such policies now? It’s because you cannot build any economy through monetary chicanery.

Economies are built exclusively upon sound fiscal policies, and the first and most important principle of sound fiscal policy is that monetary policy can never be allowed to dominate fiscal policies. Look again at the Bernanke Helicopter Drop above. Look at all the decades (starting at the far left) when the U.S. economy was genuinely prosperous. The money supply was a flat line. Monetary policy was only a minor influence on the economy.

Now look at the decades immediately before the Bernanke Helicopter Drop, the decades immediately after the last vestige of our gold standard was assassinated by central banker, Paul Volcker . The U.S. economy began that period still somewhat healthy. However, ever since the Golden Handcuffs were removed from the central bankers, and they were free to pursue their monetary voodoo (and crimes) without restraint, their monetary policies have steadily usurped fiscal policy, and hijacked the U.S. economy.

At first, this trend was somewhat gradual, as we see by the gradually increasing slope of the curve. But (as with any exponential function) the size and scope of the Federal Reserve’s monetary “policies” exploded, to the point where this monetary insanity now totally drowns out not only all fiscal policy, but all of the fiscal fundamentals of the U.S. economy. Year after year; as the Federal Reserve’s monetary dominance of the U.S. economy grew at an exponential rate, the U.S. economy has gotten weaker and weaker – with ever more-outrageous statistical falsifications used to hide this economic cancer.

The Fed’s near-zero interest rates and excessive money-printing make the U.S. economy weaker and weaker . This is no surprise. Excessive monetary policy, in any form, always weakens economies. There has never been an exception to this principle in economic history, because it is mathematically impossible. Infinitely expanding monetary policy is just as obviously suicidal as the Keynesian doctrine of infinitely expanding debt.

This brings us to the conclusion (in the title) that the Federal Reserve’s present monetary insanity can only be a program of intentional economic treason. The Federal Reserve has promised over and over and over to raise interest rates “as soon as the economy is strong enough” to do so. However, if the Fed’s policies make the economy weaker and weaker, when will the economy be “strong enough” for the Fed to keep its promise to raise interest rates? Obviously the answer to that question is never.

Einstein’s definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. If someone claims to be going on a diet by eating one cheesecake after another, when will that person be “thin enough” to fit into their new bathing suit? Obviously the answer is never.

The excessive and criminal monetary policies of the Federal Reserve must continue to make the U.S. economy weaker and weaker. Thus when these Criminals vow to continue their crimes until the U.S. economy “strengthens”, what this really means is that they will never discontinue those crimes – not until their destruction of the U.S. economy has been completed. Unless the monetary criminals of the Federal Reserve wish to “plead insanity”, deliberate treason is the only other logical verdict.

We also reach this conclusion by looking at the acts of malice of these financial criminals: the endless, serial lies. The Federal Reserve lied when it promised to immediately normalize interest rates in 2009, and it has been lying month after month, year after year ever since.

We know this, because beginning in 2009, B.S. Bernanke has serially boasted about the supposed “wealth effect” he was creating with his 0% interest rate, and near-infinite, pedal-to-the-metal money printing. You can’t create a “wealth effect” by pursuing an Exit Strategy. The two policy goals are mutually exclusive. Engaging in one policy (and continually boasting about it) means that you were never serious about the other.

The Federal Reserve (and other Western central banks) also lied when they promised they would “never copy Japan”. We know this, because all of these deceitful central bankers made this promise, individually and collectively, just before they began copying Japan. A simple allegory illustrates this point of logic.

If someone is caught walking on the grass in a garden where “do not walk on the grass” signs are posted, we have no way of knowing whether this was a malicious act, or merely an accident. However, if someone is caught walking on the grass immediately after promising that they would never walk on the grass, we now have proof of malice. Because the mind of the Liar was already consciously focused upon the “crime” of walking on the grass, any transgression would have to be intentional – i.e. malicious.

The Federal Reserve is a collection of malicious, serial liars, engaging in economic treason. The evidence is absolutely conclusive. However, in building a case for any crime, a central question is always motive. Whyhas the Federal Reserve engaged in this economic treason, and also engaged in a serial campaign of deceit to hide its economic treason?

Regular readers could answer this question in their sleep. The central bankers of the Federal Reserve, and the central bankers of all of the West’s central banks (and most of the world’s central banks) are all highly valued employees of the banking crime syndicate known as “the One Bank”.

Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes the laws.

– Mayer Amschel Rothschild, banker (1744 – 1812)

What was the reasoning behind the boast of this oligarch of financial crime? It could not be simpler. Control the printing press of a nation, and you can buy all of the politicians . Hand the control of all of our printing presses to a Crime Syndicate, and you create government-by-Crime-Syndicate, aka “fascism”.

Central bankers steal via inflation (for the benefit of their Masters). They have already confessed to the crime, as regular readers are well aware. For the benefit of newer readers, that confession will be repeated one more time.

In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation [i.e. theft] through inflation .

– Alan Greenspan, 1966

Informed readers already understand that the actual/correct definition of inflation is an increase in the supply of money. The central bankers steal by printing money. The more they print, the more they steal. It is the fundamental equation of monetary crime.

In 2008; the Federal Reserve began money-printing (and thus wealth-stealing) at an unprecedented rate. It has vowed to never stop such stealing until the U.S. economy gets stronger, while its policies must make the economy weaker and weaker. Here the Apologists for these central bankers will interject.

The Federal Reserve has “tapered” its extreme money-printing, claim the Apologists. Thus it has “tapered” the rate at which it is stealing the wealth of all Americans. No, it has not.

As already noted, B.S. Bernanke spent years boasting about how the bubble valuations in U.S. stock and bond markets were a direct consequence of his hyperinflationary money-printing. This Criminal cannot have it both ways. If the Bernanke money-pump created these asset bubbles then turning off the money-pump must cause the bubbles to implode.

The U.S.’s stock and bond bubbles have not imploded, in fact they have grown significantly larger. Ergo, it is mathematically impossible that any “tapering” of this criminal money-printing ever took place. Instead, the Criminals have simply replaced all of their official money-printing of U.S. dollars with unofficial counterfeiting. The Big Bank crime syndicate has been counterfeiting U.S. currency by the $100’s of trillions (if not quadrillions).

As has been explained before; the combination of (fraudulent) “0% interest rates” and (fraudulent) “fractional-reserve banking” enables infinite counterfeiting . The arithmetic is simple. Just three of the tentacles of the Big Bank crime syndicate could counterfeit nearly $1 quadrillion. Use four tentacles, and the potential counterfeiting increases to $1 quintillion. Use all of its tentacles, and the One Bank could literally counterfeit infinite amounts of U.S. funny-money.

Infinite counterfeiting = infinite money-printing = infinite theft.

The Federal Reserve’s current “monetary policy” is not aimed at stealing merely some of the wealth of the U.S. population. It is aimed at stealing all of the wealth of the U.S. population. And these Criminals have already promised us (again and again) that this crime will never end – not until they are finished.

In a Fed Staff working paper released over the weekend titled “Gauging the Ability of the FOMC to Respond to Future Recessions” and penned by deputy director of the division of research and statistics at the Fed, the author concludes that “simulations of the FRB/US model of a severe recession suggest that large-scale asset purchases and forward guidance about the future path of the federal funds rate should be able to provide enough additional accommodation to fully compensate for a more limited [ability] to cut short-term interest rates in most, but probably not all, circumstances.”

So far so good, however, there are some notable problems with the paper’s assumptions, as Citi head of G10 FX, Steven Englander, observes.

He writes that the paper’s basic framework is to take the standard US economic model used by the Fed, give it a negative shock big enough to push the unemployment rate up by 5 percentage points (big but not unprecedented over the last 50 years) and deploying the Fed’s policy rate, QE and forward guidance tools to see if they are adequate to get the economy back on track. Negative rates and helicopter money are not used.

The two simulations assume:

the economy is in equilibrium initially with inflation at 2%, r* at 1%, so equilibrium nominal fed funds is 3%

the economy is in equilibrium initially with inflation at 2%, r* at zero (secular stagnation) and equilibrium nominal fed funds at 2%

He compares three policy approaches. The first assumes a linear world where fed funds can go into negative territory but there is no breakdown in the structure of economic relationships. It is probably not a realistic view of policy ineffectiveness at negative rates, but it is mean to be a baseline. The second just takes fed funds down to zero and keeps it there long enough for unemployment to return to baseline.

The third takes fed funds down to zero and augments it with additional USD2trn of QE and forward guidance. A variation on the third policy response function doubles the amount of QE in the second simulation.

In other words, the Fed is already factoring in a scenario in which a shock to the economy leads to additional QE of either $2 trillion, or in a worst case scenario, $4 trillion, effectively doubling the current size of the Fed’s balance sheet.

He continues his critique of the Fed’s argument as follows:

In the simulations. QE and forward guidance take 10yr yields down 225-300 bps depending on the starting point for fed funds and whether you do $2 trillion or $4 trillion for QE. But that is not going to work very well if by design fed funds and 10yr yields can’t go below zero. And if expected rates are already low then forward guidance does not have much room. Fed official will gave to keep a straight face while saying they we will keep rates at zero … forever.

What makes it work is that QE and committing to low rates for longer gets the long rate down quickly and this compensates for the inability to take short rates down as far as you would want. In the unconstrained model, the maximum drop in short rates is almost 9 percentage points, almost twice as much as in the constrained model, but the QE/forward guidance lower takes (and keeps) long rates 75bps lower than when the Fed takes rates to zero and stops. When the Fed is starting from 3% fed funds, the combo can almost entirely offset the zero constraint, but only if the full $4 trillion QE is brought to bear. Starting from 2%, QE of $2 trillion is not enough to get long rates down far or fast enough to offset the shock.

All of which brings Englander to the following stunning conclusion:

Fed Admits Another $4 Trillion In QE Will Be Needed To Offset An “Economic Shock”

I would have rewritten the conclusion as: “large-scale asset purchases and forward guidance about the future path of the federal funds rate have almost no ability to offset a shock in current circumstances, but down the road may be able to provide enough additional accommodation to fully compensate for a more limited [ability] to cut short-term interest rates in some, but not all and maybe even not most, circumstances.” The italics and colors show my changes.

Just as troubling, Englander admits that the nuanced read of the Fed paper admits it is effectively powerless to withstand a sharp recession: “The key policy issues and what drives the paper’s conclusions and my variant is the starting point. Were we to have a recession today or a year (or even two years) from now, it is very unlikely that the Fed weapons have anywhere near the potency that the paper describes. The FOMC had an end-2018 median fed funds rate of 2.4% at the June meeting and my guess is that it is lower now. Markets don’t price in even 100bps in fed funds till the end of 2019 (taking Eurodollar rates and subtracting 40bs or so.) That said, a 5% shock to the unemployment rate is pretty extreme, if the Fed is not stepping on the brakes hard or world not falling apart for other reasons.”

How much room does the Fed have? Very little:

In the simulation is looks as if it takes about 160-180bps of fed funds reductions (peak response) to offset an 1% UR shock, so right now they could offset maybe an 0.20% shock to the UR with the rates room that they have.

But most troubling of all, is just how critical starting conditions are for further easing; considering monetary conditions right now are unprecedented, it means the Fed has its work cut out for it:

The problem the paper outs in relief is that the effectiveness of rate cuts/QE/rate guidance goes up with the starting point of rates – so the combined policy tools are much more effective if the fed funds rate is 3% than if it is 2% and certainly a lot more than if it is 40bps. There is a good reason the paper does not examine the options for fighting recessions under current conditions. The drop in fed funds also takes 10 year yields down, and roughly 30-40bps in 10s for every 100 bps in fed funds, so if you are starting with fed funds at 40bps and 10yr yields at 160bps, rates policy/QE/forward guidance are not going to do much. Short rates, long rates and rate expectations have nowhere to go, unless you bring negative rates into the discussion, which does not occur.

And, as noted above, not less than $4 trillion in QE would be enough to “get long rates down far or fast enough to offset the shock.”

What are the implications for the Fed, and thus to the market, as a result of the paper? It depends on whetyher one is a hawk or a dove:

To the doves fast growth and higher inflation inoculates the Fed and the economy from policy ineffectiveness at the zero bound so it is a very dovish outcome. Insofar as having 2.5% or 3% inflation makes policy more effective in a downturn there is a case for loosening the target, or not admitting to loosen but reacting to an overshoot anyway.

Hawks may argue that there is a case for raising rates faster, not slower, but the argument has to be made carefully. Assume that the next recession comes in a year from a source not related to Fed policy – the EU falling apart or a major geopolitical event. If fed funds is at 100bps, for example, they may have a meeting or two to stimulate by taking policy rates down while laying the ground for the much bigger stimulus from fiscal or helicopter money that would be needed. If fed funds are very low, investors, households and firms may lose confidence when they recognize that policy has nowhere to go. But this logic depends crucially on this confidence effect which may or may not exist. Hawks can at any point argue that the risks of the zero bound are overstated or that easy Fed policy makes the next recession more likely by making a financial crisis more likely at some point, but that is outside the scope of the paper.
Incidentally, all of the above is a long-winded way of saying the Fed hiked rates, only to be forced it will have to not only cut them, as Japan did 7 months after its ill-fated August 2000 rate hike as we cautioned last August…

… but that when the US economy slides into the next sharp recession, no less than $4 trillion in QE will be needed to stabilize the economy, bringing the Fed’s total holdings of government bonds to well over 30%. And with that in mind, we look forward to what “upside rate hike surprises” Yellen has in store for the market this coming Friday, especially if the politically-tasked Bureau of Labor Services continues to surprise to the upside with fresh record numbers of minimum-wage restaurant workers and bartenders.

Rothschild: “This Is The Greatest Experiment In Monetary Policy In The History Of The World”

Central bankers are late to this logical conclusion. They, like most individuals, would prefer to pay later than now. But, by pursuing a policy of more QE and lower and lower yields, they may find that the global economic engine will sputter instead of speed up..

Bill Gross Warns “Central Bankers Are Destroying The Engine Of The Real Economy”

Yesterday, in the FOMC notes, the Federal Reserve made a stark admission: “several expressed concern that an extended period of low interest rates risked intensifying incentives for investors to reach for yield and could lead to the misallocation of capital and mispricing of risk, with possible adverse consequences for financial stability.” To this, Bank of America chief credit strategist Hans Mikkelsen had an amusing retort:

“We agree. However, because we are still in the reach for yield phase we remain bullish on HG corporate bond spreads.”

In other words, it’s a bubble and everyone – even the Fed – knows it, just as a recent survey also by BofA revealed, but keep on buying because, well, TINA.

But who is buying, and how much?

Judicial Watch proved it. Under a Freedom of Information Act request, Judicial Watch was able to obtain a (heavily redacted) copy of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) directive that initiated the creation of ISIS in 2012. the DIA report states,

“THE WEST, GULF COUNTRIES, AND TURKEY [WHO] SUPPORT THE [SYRIAN] OPPOSITION . . . [SUPPORT] ESTABLISHING A DECLARED OR UNDECLARED SALAFIST PRINCIPALITY IN EASTERN SYRIA . . . IN ORDER TO ISOLATE THE SYRIAN REGIME . . .”.

Not even Judicial Watch seems to have appreciated the significance of this document, where its press release focused on the Benghazi attack. Recent releases of 911 Hillary’s emails, moreover, confirm that taking out Assad has nothing to do with his alleged abuse of the Syrian people but because it will help Israel.

Just in case it has slipped anyone’s mind, Hillary 911 was Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013. Barack Obozo The POTUS Clown was inaugurated in 2008 and steps down in 2016. It happened on their watch. It could not have happened without their approval. They really did create the Antichrist ISIS!

Hillary 911 Clinton has been deemed a sure bet for the White House, as it’s widely speculated the inflammatory Donald Trump and socialist-leaning Bernie Sanders stray too far from establishment politics to be truly electable.

But it wasn’t until an examination using Wikileaks searchable archive of 911 Clinton’s emails that the establishment’s love of the Democratic warhawk became truly apparent.

Buried in thousands of the former Secretary of State’s emails sent via her personal server, are intimations of her close relationship with the infamous Rothschild banking family and hints for a potential Rockefeller-State partnership.

Private tech companies involved with 911 Clinton email server stonewalling Congress

Several tech companies who had a hand in maintaining or storing Hillary 911 Clinton’s private email server are refusing to cooperate with congressional committees investigating the matter.

The firms are supplying the FBI with documents and other information but have cited client confidentiality laws that they say prevent them from giving several committees access to information on the server.

The Homeland Security Committee is especially interested in the information that could be supplied by tech companies because the committee is investigating whether the server was breached by hackers and sensitive information exposed.

The leaked memo made it abundantly clear that AQI used Muhammad Al Adnani as their spokesman. Guess what, he is now the spokesman for Antichrist ISIS. Antichrist NWO 666 Barack Hussein Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown was literally paying them money! This is not even close to a joke or a theory. The leaked memo proves it to be factual.

Obozo’s plan was to support the terrorist group until they overthrew Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad. Toppling dictators and supporting terrorist groups has NEVER worked, but Hillary 911 continues to think so. She was a heavy proponent of this idea. Keep that point in mind.

In an August 2012 “SECRET” classified memo made its way to Hillary 911 Clinton AND Obozo.

Who lacks the mental fortitude now?

Arkancide: lawyer of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange dead

The word Arkancide, probably coined by the website Arkancide, refers to potential witnesses to the 911 Clintons’ dirty dealings in Arkansas suddenly committing suicide by shooting themselves in the back of the head.

Arkansas police and coroners, notably medical examiner Fahmy Malak who answered to then-Arkansas governor Bill Clinton, automatically called these shootings suicides. After Bill Clinton became President the phenomenon moved to Washington D.C., most notably when Hillary 911 Clinton’s ex-lover Vincent Foster was found dead on a D.C. park bench and declared to also have committed suicide.

Now that Hillary 911 is pursuing the presidency, Arkancides have resumed, including these recent cases:

Antichrist Obozo And Satanic Sadiq Khan Just Passed Online Antichrist Sharia Satanic Law

Aside from the standard list of lies which Antichrist NWO 666 US-led Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown ‘Coalition’ representatives regularly spout regarding their so-called ‘moderate rebels’ (terrorists) in Syria, there is another key lie which is only barely holding Washington and London’s house of cards together – that is the idea that some of these ‘moderate rebels’ (terrorists) are somehow engaged in the grand crusade against Antichrist ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh (all terms apply equally to ISIS). For all intents and purposes, this spurious western claim is a lie – one of many lies about Syria constantly being fed to the public by western politicians and media functionaries.

The reality, outside of the Washington-London “classified” reality bubble is that these Antichrist NWO 666 US-NATO-GCC-Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown backed ‘moderate rebels’ (terrorists) have, more or less, the exact same objectives as Antichrist ISIS, and unless they are fighting over control of money or illicit black markets, their shared collective goal is the overthrow of the Syrian government in Damascus via ‘regime change’ and an end to a secular, multi-religious nation-state of Syria. Put simply: their flag designs and online brands may differ, but they are effectively one in the same. So it only stands to reason that if the Antichrist NWO 666 US-NATO Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown allies are wholeheartedly backing this rebel-terrorist ‘armed opposition’ conclave, then despite their highfalutin rhetoric, Antichrist NWO 666 US-NATO Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown allies are also supporting an end to the secular multi-religious nation-state in Syria.

Furthermore, as western-backed terrorist rebels share the same objectives as Antichrist ISIS, then by extension – this also means that the Antichrist NWO 666 US-NATO Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown allies share the exact same goals as Antichrist ISIS. Yes, that’s right: Antichrist NWO 666 US-NATO Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown forces have positioned themselves as natural allies of Antichrist ISIS, alongside the ‘moderate rebel’ terrorists who have already received billions in western taxpayer-funded arms, equipment, training, intelligence support and cash.

The entire Antichrist NWO 666 US-NATO Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown justification for having thousands of special forces and military trainers currently deployed in Jive Turkey, Jordan and inside Syria – is that the NATO member states are training these ‘moderate rebels’ (terrorists) to fight against Antichrist ISIS.” Seeing that this is not actually happening, and thus can be written off as another major lie and key propaganda line being disseminated by Washington and its NATO functionaries – then the US and its NATO partners are effectively undermining the war against the terrorists – and conveniently extending the Syrian Conflict in the process. Based on this, the obvious conclusion would be for the US and NATO forces to cease all military activities in and around Syria – and leave the fighting against terrorist groups… to those entities legally inside Syria of whom we can safely say are definitely not supporting or enabling Antichrist jihadi terrorists groups in the region and those entities are: the Syrian government forces, the Russian military, Antichrist Iranian forces and the Antichrist Hezbollah militia.

Add to this, the disconcerting fact that Antichrist ISIS terrorists in both Syria and Iraq, as well as in Afghanistan – are using United States-issued weapons and equipment. Despite categorical US denials, this is becoming an all too familiar occurrence.

It shouldn’t be complicated, and yet, this is how Washington and London like to operate – within a fog of maximum confusion, and of Gangs and Counter-gangs, while also cynically changing the names of known terrorist groups the US-led ‘Coalition’ has been supporting both militarily and financially for at least the past four years, and also by using its corporate media assets like CNN who are now trying to rehabilitate Antichrist jihadist terrorist groups for these fighters to gain favor from western audiences.

Does anyone still believe that “the ‘moderate rebels’ are fighting AntiAchrist ISIS,” like Washington has insisted for years now? According to the evidence, that’s just another lie – and here is even more damning proof that it’s a lie…

US-backed ‘rebels’, under the watchful supervision of US drones, have just let Antichrist ISIS walk away….

Proof: US and NATO-backed ‘Rebels’ Are NOT Fighting Antichrist ISIS

Updating our earlier note, it appears The State Department’s stalling has been disallowed… (as Bloomberg reports)

A judge ordered the State Department to expedite its review of almost 15,000 previously undisclosed documents recovered by the FBI from Hillary 911 Clinton’s private e-mail servers.

U.S. District James Boasberg on Monday ordered the State Department to process those recovered records by Sept. 22 and report back to him that day. He didn’t set a schedule for public release. The department raised the possibility of a phased release starting Oct. 14, which left open how many would be disclosed before the Nov. 8 presidential election.

As we detailed earlier, in yet another incident pointing to 911 Hillary’s ‘above the law’ persistent lies, WaPo reports The FBI’s year-long investigation of Hillary 911 Clinton’s private email server uncovered tens of thousands more documents from her time as secretary of state that were not previously disclosed by her attorneys. Worse still, as Judicial Watch details, “it looks like the State Department is trying to slow roll the release of the records.”

Having suffered blowback from throwing Colin Powell under the bus over the weekend, The 911 Clinton campaign is likely back in panic mode as The Washington Post reports the number of emails to be released is nearly 50 percent more than the 30,000-plus that 911 Clinton’s lawyers deemed work-related and returned to the department in December 2014…

The State Department is expected to discuss when and how it will release the emails Monday morning in federal court.

Monday’s hearing comes seven weeks after the Justice Department on July 7 closed a criminal investigation without charges into the handling of classified material in Clinton’s email set-up, which FBI Director James B. Comey Jr. called “extremely careless.”

The FBI on Aug. 5 completed transferring all of what Comey said were several thousand previously undisclosed work-related Clinton 911 emails that the FBI found in its investigation for the State Department to review and make public. Government lawyers until now have given no details about how many emails the FBI found or when the full set would be released. It’s unclear how many of the 15,000 or so documents might be attachments, duplicates or exempt from release for various legal reasons.

Government lawyers disclosed last week that the FBI turned over six computer discs of information: one including e-mails and attachments that were sent directly to or from Clinton, or to or from her at some point in an e-mail chain, and not previously turned over by her lawyers; a second with classified documents; another with emails returned by 911 Clinton; and three others containing materials from other individuals retrieved by the FBI.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton tweeted Monday morning that…

Adding in an interview that “it looks like the State Department is trying to slow roll the release of the records. They’ve had them for at least a month, and we still don’t know when we’re going to get them.”

The roughly 15,000 documents at issue now come from the first disc, Fitton said.

Lawyers for the State Department and Judicial Watch, the legal group, said in an Aug. 12 court filing that they intended to negotiate a plan for the release, part of a civil public records lawsuit before U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg of Washington.

The pre-emptive excuse already being pitched by FBI Director HSBC Comey is just as disgusting as his previous statement that investigators found no evidence that the emails it found “were intentionally deleted in an effort to conceal them.”

911 Clinton’s lawyers also may have deleted some of the emails as “personal,” Comey said, noting their review relied on header information and search terms, not a line-by-line reading as the FBI conducted.
We are sure this is “probably nothing” – just another factual falsehood from the Clintons and their establishment cronies.

Of course, as Bill Clinton has stated, this will all change…

If [Hillary] is elected, we will immediately implement the following changes:

The Foundation will accept contributions only from U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and U.S.-based independent foundations, whose names we will continue to make public on a quarterly basis.

And we will change the official name from the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton 911 Foundation to the Clinton 911 Foundation.

While I will continue to support the work of the Foundation, I will step down from the Board and will no longer raise funds for it.

But – we presume – if she is not elected then the foreign bribes will continue?

FBI Uncovers Over 15,000 More Emails In Clinton 911 Probe

A massive hack of socialist billionaire George Soros’ Open Society Foundations suggests that his various nonprofit organizations are little more than fronts for his many political activities. His growing closeness to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary 911 Clinton should be a warning to all.

George Soros — The 911 Hillary Democrats’ Billionaire Antichrist Puppetmaster

It is almost as if Europe’s refugee crisis was planned and prepared, not just by the Soros organization, but others who would benefit from a shift in the change of regional “migration governance”, i.e., the reimposition of sovereignty terms, as Greece found out the hard way several months ago when its sovereignty was relegated to the country’s willingness to participate in Europe’s refugee scheme.

Soros Hack Reveals Plot Behind Europe’s Refugee Crisis; Media Manipulation; Cash For “Social Justice”

It will hardly come as a surprise that according to the review, immigration policy-makers need to accept the refugee crisis as a “new normal.” One of the conclusions listed in the memo is, “Accepting the current crisis as the new normal and moving beyond the need to react.”

“Observing our partners as they respond and adjust to the new reality in light of the crisis in Europe and the Mediterranean, we see little attention given to long-term planning or fundamentally new approaches to advocacy.”

The conclusion also stresses the need to fight back against “growing intolerance toward migrants.” It is unclear just how Soros plans on “fighting back.”

Needless to say, in order to promote its European refugee agenda, the Soros organization needs close European allies. Conveniently, it has a memo prepared just for that titled “Reliable allies in the European Parliament (2014 – 2019)” in which it notes the importance of building “lasting and trustworthy” relationships with European MEPs “likely to support Open Society’s work.”

This mapping provides the Open Society European Policy Institute and the Open Society network intelligence on Members of the 8th European Parliament likely to support Open Society values during the 2014–2019 legislature.

It spans 11 committees and 26 delegations, as well as the European Parliament’s highest decisionmaking bodies: 226 MEPs who are proven or likely Open Society allies.

The presence of an MEP in this mapping indicates that they are likely to support Open Society’s work. They should be approached with an open mind: although they will most likely want to work on areas they’re already interested in, they could also welcome hearing about new issues.

Beyond discussing individual topics, Open Society should seek to build lasting and trustworthy relationships with these European lawmakers.
Much more in the full 177 page memo.

Aside from Europe’s refugee crisis, the data leak provides other important glimpses in Soros’ influence of global affairs.

One memo, which is an overview of the “Ukraine Media Project” exposes how Soros influences media coverage of events in Ukraine, something previously touched upon in a June 2015 post titled “Hacked Emails Expose George Soros As Ukraine Puppet-Master.”

In the memo which reveals how Soros hopes to “cover” events in Ukraine, the authors admit that “this isn’t proper independent journalism and we may damage our credibility with journalists” and admit that “journalists may produce stories that have no relevance for the narrative we seek to inform or stories that are counterproductive (enforcing narratives of fascism etc.)”

Investigative Journalism:Select journalists from the 5 target countries (Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Greece) and

offer them long stay reporting trips in Ukraine. Rather than specify what they should write about they should make suggestions for articles; we retain a veto on stories we think are counterproductive. Suggestion that we liaise directly with journalists to determine interest.

Pros:

Similar approach to what we have done for other press trips
Opportunity to build relationships with journalists and news outlets
Opportunity to diversify reporting on Ukraine into longer form content examining non-breaking news angles

Cons:

Credibility: the “veto” approach means this isn’t proper independent journalism and we may damage our credibility with journalists
Control: Journalists may produce stories that have no relevance for the narrative we seek to inform or stories that are counterproductive (enforcing narratives of fascism etc.)
Interference: however nuanced this is packaged, we may enforce the narrative of GS/OSF manipulation
Placement: publication of the articles is not guaranteed and presents a significant barrier to success

We then turn our attention to the US, where we we find a memo that “provides a brief overview of state/local funding by U.S. Programs in the last three years.”

Throughout its 15-year history, U.S. Programs has complemented its national work with state and local grantmaking. The Emma Lazarus Fund, the Southern Initiative, the Program on Reproductive Health and Rights, and the Youth Initiative all had a strong presence in states like Louisiana, North Carolina, Texas, New York, and California. In this way, U.S. Programs has not only advanced core priority issues at the national level, but it has also worked to enable local and state actors to play a more critical role in shaping discussions around criminal justice, drug policy, immigrants’ rights, government security, and other key issues at the state level.

The memo indirectly hints at Soros funding for BLM:

To provide support to the Baltimore Education Research Consortium, including for the creation of an executive director position/$196,000/OSI-Baltimore/2009
To support the American Journalism Review’s series of articles on the crisis in American journalism with a focus on, among other things, coverage of federal agencies and state governments, including Maryland /$200,000/Strategic Opportunities Fund/2009

Furthermore, here is confirmation of Soros’ funding and support for Social Justice organizations, taken from a memo revealing the “Democracy and Power Fund”, which explains its desire for building “state-based power”

Advance social justice in critical states through state-based issue advocacy and organizing where the opportunities to advance (or the threats to) open society are particularly significant.
It is almost surprising how cheap control over SWJ causes is.

Another memo provides further details on the funding of an additional five organizations, including the infamous La Raza.

Among the leaks we also find a document on the Center for American Progress, or CAP, whose purpose is “To support the Examining Anti-Muslim Bigotry Project.” We are confident various conservative organization will be curious about this because as part of its activities the CAP is expected to “research and track the activities of the most prominent drivers of Islamophobia” including Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, David Howoritz, Robert Spencer, Cliff May, Liz Cheney and so forth:

1. Outreach to Subject Experts

CAP’s first step will be to interview and engage in the Project the journalists, researchers, academics, and leaders in the anti-hate movement who are researching and writing on Islamophobia, and to develop a roster of knowledgeable and credible experts to whom journalists and policymakers can turn for information. As part of this process, CAP will reach out to Media Matters for America, FAIR, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, the American Antichrist Muslim Civic Leadership Institute, Antichrist Muslim Advocates, the Interfaith Center of New York, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the cohort of emerging Antichrist Muslim leaders in CAP’s Young Antichrist Muslim American Voices Project that is run by CAP’s Faith and Progressive Policy Institute.

2. Audit of Islamophobic Activities and Strategy Convening

CAP will research and track the activities of the most prominent drivers of Islamophobia, including Stop Islamization of America, led by Pamela Geller; the Center for Security Policy, led by Frank Gaffney; David Horowitz’s Freedom Center, which sponsors Robert Spencer’s Jihad Watch; the Middle East Forum, led by Daniel Pipes; the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, led by Cliff May; and Keep America Safe, led by Liz Cheney. In addition, CAP will examine the role played by right-wing media, the Tea Party movement, prominent politicians, pundits, and conservative donors in spreading anti-Muslim hysteria. This research will form the basis of a CAP audit of Islamophobic activities that will inform a strategy convening of around two dozen researchers and advocates, including representatives of progressive organizations and the AMEMSA community. Participants will be asked to formulate strategies for combating anti-Muslim bigotry. The convening is planned for the first quarter of 2011.

We continue to dig through the filings for further ties, financial or otherwise, between Soros and the various branches of the US government as well as the 4th estate.

Leaked Soros Memo: Refugee Crisis ‘New Normal,’ Gives ‘New Opportunities’ For Global Influence

So to summarize – Obozo lied; the administration did indeed make a $400 million in exchange for the release of four hostages (if it walks like a ransom, and talks like a ransom, it is a ransom), and Trump was right.

State Department Admits Obozo Lied – $400 Million Payment To Iran Was Contingent On Prisoner Release

Let’s also keep in mind the Soros connection, and how Soros had a failed bid to capture the eastern Ukrainian provinces for mining and natural resources for $50 million…a mere pittance of what the area holds economically. A bunch of Soros’ documents were leaked out over the weekend, and you can access a ton of them at soros.dcleaks.com. You can enter the section marked “Europe” and read a ton of Soros plans and documents regarding his intentions for the area.

Since these plans tie into the IMF plans and NATO’s, it is small wonder that Ukraine is a tipping point that can easily escalate into WWIII.

Hacked emails show that the Open Society Foundations, led by George Soros, has as an objective “challenging Israel’s racist and anti-democratic policies” in international forums, in part by questioning Israel’s reputation as a democracy.

The documents are available on a website, reportedly backed by Russia, that uses anti-Semitic stereotypes to attack Soros.

The French announcement comes at the same time as Germany is deciding whether to put “troops on the streets” to protect the population from terrorism. While a formal decision has yet to be announced, Europe’s distinct creep toward increasing militarization of society continues.

France To Deploy 3,000 Troops To Schools: “The Threat Is Real” Education Minister Says

The Port of Long Beach Posts a 7.7% Drop in Container Volumes compared to July 2015. The port attributes the decline to high inventory levels and a slow start to the peak season.

Container volumes at the Port of Long Beach fell 7.7 percent in July compared to the same month in 2015 when harbor terminals handled a record amount of cargo.

Dockworkers moved 637,091 TEUs last month. Inbound containers totaled 325,608 TEUs, a 5.9 percent year-over-year decrease. Outbound containers reached 142,812 TEUs, a slight drop of 0.7 percent from July 2015. Empties decreased to 168,671 TEUs, 15.9 percent lower than July 2015, the port’s strongest July on record.

Peak Season Shipping Slumps: Containers Crash, Traffic Tumbles Most In 6 Years

“Due to continued market uncertainty and high inventory levels, the traditional holiday peak season is off to a slow start and several national forecasts have been revised downward to reflect this softness in cargo movement,” the port said.
Uncertainty Yet Again

There’s that darn uncertainty cropping up again. Mercy.

If it’s any consolation, Economists Expect “Mount Everest” of Uncertainty to Clear Up by December.

However, the peak shipping season will long be over by December.

Concerned parties may also wish to read Comment of the Day Regarding Uncertainty.

Port Blames Inventories

Curiously, the port blamed inventories. The port authorities better get a hold of the Bloomberg Econoday writer pronto. On August 12, Econoday stated that inventories were in “favorable position“, specifically noting the “lean 1.39” inventory-to-sales ratio.

Shocking Collapse in Services Final Demand

The disappointing news from the Port of Long Beach comes fresh on the heels of a Huge 6% Collapse in PPI Services Final Demand for Apparel, Jewelry, Footwear that had economists shocked.

Cass Freight Index

Truck shipments continue to dive. Shipments in June of 2016 are down vs. June of 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and almost but not quite 2010. Shipments in July are down vs. 2015, 2014, 2012, and 2011.

Here’s a chart I created from Cass Freight Index data.

Intermodal Shipping Also Down

Earlier today I noted Intermodal Shipping Traffic Suffers First Dip in 25 Quarters.

Overall intermodal traffic in North America fell 6.1 percent in second quarter 2016, the biggest volume decline in 25 consecutive quarters, according to data from the Intermodal Association of North America.

Peak Season 3

Retail Sales Flat

Economists missed the mark on retail sales this month by a mile. The Bloomberg Econoday consensus estimate was +0.4% in a range of +0.2% to +0.7%.

Instead of the expected gain, Retail Sales “Solidly” Flat.

Other than the above items, overall manufacturing weakness, and a massive downward revision to real wages from +4.2% to -0.4% (see Pocketbook Theory – Mish vs. Wall Street Journal), 2016 peak season shipping prospects look phenomenal.

Addendum:

The above chart originally stated Cass Index down 5.3% From June the Cass index is actually down 4.3%. About a minute after I made this post, July numbers came out from Cass. From July 2015, traffic is down 2.6% and expenditures down 5.1%.

Nassim Taleb Warns the Biggest Black Swan Event Of All Is Coming

We profiled Carl Icahn’s notorious bearishness most recently two weeks ago when we showed that for the second quarter in a row, the billionaire’s hedge fund, Icahn Enterprises had kept on its record short bias, manifesting in a net -149% market exposure.

Carl Icahn Turns Apocalyptic: “I Am More Hedged Than Ever, A Day Of Reckoning Is Coming”

Unlike other hedge fund managers, however, Icahn does not provide monthly letters explaining his mindset which is why we eagerly watched a expansive, 40 minute interview he gave to Bloomberg’s Erik Shatzker, in which in addition to a detailed discussion of Trump and how the Republican presidential candidate would change the US economy, he shared some much needed insights into his gloomy vision of the market.

On Sunday, when looking at the latest update of the Fed’s custody holdings of Treasuries, we noted something troubling: the number dropped sharply, declining by over $17 billion, bringing the total to $2.871 trillion, the lowest amount of Treasuries held by foreigners at the Fed since 2012.

We added that “while TIC data released this Monday will give us some much needed, if substantially delayed, data on reserve manager activity as of June, the hypothesis is that OPEC countries such as Saudi Arabia are once again quietly selling Treasuries to raise cash in an environment of low oil prices and the consequent budgetary tightness.”

After getting the Treasury International Capital (TIC) data, we can confirm that something strange is taking place in the US Treasury market, in fact something that is the complete opposite of what one would expect by looking at the relentless Indirect bidder demand in government bond auctions. Because, based on TIC data, foreign investors – both official and private – were sellers of $32.9 billion Treasury notes and bonds in June. Narrowing the selling down to just official entities, i.e. mostly central banks, but also SWFs and reserve managers, brings the total to $33.5 billion.

Contrary to our expectation that the biggest sellers would be Antichrist Saudi Arabia and/or other petrodollar reliant nations, the largest sellers of Treasuries in June, based on transaction data, were Antichrist Communist China, with sales of $28.0 billion, Japan, with sales of $13.2 billion and Hong Kong, with sales of $10.8 billion. Alternatively, the largest buyer in June by far was the Cayman Islands, with purchases of $28.3 billion; this is another name for “hedge funds.” The UK was a distant second, with purchases of $5.1 billion.

As SMRA points out, the purchases of Treasuries by the Cayman Islands in June were much larger than the increase in holdings by investors there, suggesting that some of the buying was done on behalf of investors located in other countries. It appears we have a new “Belgium” on our hands, this time one where a sovereign player is using a hedge fund to accumulate positions instead of conventional London or Brussels-based bond clearinghouses.

But there was a bigger surprise: using the TIC transaction data, the change in central bank holdings in the first 6 months of 2016 amount to a whopping $192 billion liquidation, more than twice larger than the $82 billion sale in the same period in 2015. This was also the biggest 6 month selling of US debt in series history which stretches back to 1978.

In Surprising Twist, Global Central Banks Dump A Record $335 Billion In US Debt In Past Year

Finally, the biggest surprise is when looking at the selling on an LTM basis, because adding all the central bank transactions over the past 12 months reveals a not so stealthy, make that gargantuan $335 billion in selling in the period July 2015- June 2016, something which as the chart below shows, is truly unprecedented.

Incidentally, while the much less followed transaction data showed a historic liquidation by central banks, the TIC’s holdings data revealed an increase in Treasury holdings of $78.5 billion (including Bill holdings).

Where does the $111.4 billion discrepancy come from?

The answer is simple: the TIC holdings data are reported at market value and that often explains large discrepancies between the holdings data and the transactions data, according to SMRA. That would certainly make sense in June, when Treasuries rallied sharply after the Brexit vote. (In the TIC data, holdings are reported using month-end values.)

The impact of changes in market value is greatest on the largest holders, including Antichrist Communist China and Japan. In June, while the transactions data indicated selling by Antichrist Communist China of $32.0 billion in Treasuries in June (including bills), the holdings data showed a small reduction of $3.2 billion.

In other words, as Antichrist Communist China dumped over $30 billion in Treasuries, the market value of its holdings increased by $3.2 billion over the same period, giving the impression that it was actually buying. It wasn’t.

Similarly, while the transactions data showed Japan selling $14.3 billion of Treasuries in June, the holdings data showed an increase after adjusting for market values of $14.5 billion.

And the biggest surprise: based on the holdings data – which is marked to market – foreign holdings of long-term Treasuries were up $117.8 billion in the 12 months ended in June, compared to a decline of $241.7 billion for all foreign investors, both official and private, implied by the transactions data.

In other words, far from the conventional wisdom that foreign central banks are accumulating US Treasury holdings at a feverish pace (they may be, but only at On The Run auctions while dumping illiquid Off The Run paper), they have in reality liquidated a third of a trillion in TSYs in the past year.

Who are they selling to? The answer: private demand, in other words just like in the stock market the retail investor is the final bagholder, so when it comes to US Treasuries, “private investors” are soaking up hundreds of billions in central bank holdings. We wonder if they would do that knowing who is selling to them.

Meanwhile, the yield on US 10Y paper is almost at its all time lows.

World’s first quantum communication satellite launched.

Antichrist Communist China has successfully launched the world’s first quantum communication satellite – Quantum Experiments at Space Scale (QUESS) – from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in northwestern Gobi Desert at 17:40 UTC on August 16, 2016 (01:40 local time on August 17).

ANTICHRIST COMMUNIST CHINA LAUNCHES QUANTUM COMM SATELLITE: Are They Building the Mark of the Beast Infrastructure?

In July 1944, just weeks after the successful Allied invasion of Normandy, hundreds of delegates from around the world gathered in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire to determine the future of the global financial system.

The vision was simple: America would be the center of the universe, and every other nation would revolve around the US.

This arrangement ultimately led to the US dollar being the world’s dominant reserve currency which still remains today.

Whenever a Brazilian merchant pays a Korean supplier, that deal is negotiated and settled in US dollars.

Oil. Coffee. Steel. Aircraft. Countless commodities and products across the planet change hands in US dollars, so nearly every major commercial bank, central bank, multi-national corporation, and sovereign government must hold and be able to transact in US dollars.

This system provides a huge incentive for the rest of the world to hold trillions of dollars worth of US assets– typically deposits in the US banking system, or US government bonds.

It’s what makes US government debt the most popular “investment” in the world, why US government bonds are considered extremely liquid “cash equivalents”.

As long as this system continues, the US government can continue to go deeper into debt without suffering serious consequences.

Just imagine being totally broke… yet every time you want to borrow money there’s a crowd of delighted lenders eager to replenish your wallet with fresh funds.

This may be the US government’s #1 advantage right now.

You’d think that they would be eternally grateful and take care to never abuse this incredible privilege.

But no… not these guys.

In fact, they’ve done the exact opposite. Over the last eight years the US government has gone out of its way to eliminate as much of this benefit and alienate as many allies as possible.

They’ve abused the trust and confidence that the rest of the world placed in them by racking up record amounts of debt, waging indiscriminate wars in foreign lands, and dropping bombs on children’s hospitals by remote control.

They’ve created absurd amounts of regulations and had the audacity to expect foreign banks to comply.

Plus they’ve levied billions of dollars worth of fines against foreign banks who haven’t complied with their ridiculous regulations.

(Last week, for example, New York state financial regulators fined a Taiwanese bank $180 million for not complying with NY state law.)

And they’ve threatened to banish any foreign banks from the US financial system who don’t pay their steep fines.

Abuse. Deceit. Extortion. Not exactly great ways to win friends and influence people.

It’s as if Barack Obozo The POTUS Clown pulled together the smartest guys he could find to make a list of all the ways the US government would have to screw up in order to lose its enormous financial privilege… and then he went out and did ALL of them.

The US government is practically begging the rest of the world to find an alternative to the US dollar and US banking system.

Even the government of France, a key US ally, called into question continued US dominance of the global financial system after the US government slammed French bank BNP Paribas with a $9 billion fine.

There have already been some attempts to displace the United States in the financial system.

Antichrist Communist China has been aggressively setting up its own competing financial infrastructure, something called the Antichrist Communist China International Payment System.

It’s been a slow start for the Antichrist Communist Chinese, but they’re building momentum. Though I’m not sure Antichrist Communist China is the answer in the long run.

While banks around the world may not care for the long and strong arm of the US government, the Antichrist Communist Chinese government doesn’t exactly inspire trust either.

But now there really is an alternative. Technology.

Ripple, a blockchain-style protocol that’s funded by Google Ventures (among others), is now being utilized by international banks to send and receive transactions directly.

The way international bank transfers work now relies exclusively on the US financial system.

Large foreign banks have what’s called a “correspondent account”, typically at a major US bank like JP Morgan, Citibank, etc.

A correspondent account is essentially a bank account for other banks. Our company holds funds at a bank in Singapore, for example, whose US dollar correspondent account is at Bank of New York Mellon.

Foreign banks’ US dollar correspondent accounts are typically at major Wall Street banks because that’s the epicenter of US dollar transactions.

So when a bank in Australia sends US dollars to a bank in South Africa, that payment actually flows from the Australian bank’s correspondent account in the US to the South African bank’s correspondent account in the US.

The entire transaction effectively takes place using the US banking system.

Again, this gives the US government enormous power over foreign banks. Any foreign bank that doesn’t do what Uncle Sam commands can be excommunicated from the US banking system.

And without access to the US banking system, a foreign bank will be unable to transact in US dollars, and hence unable to conduct any global business.

This is a death sentence for a bank. The US government knows this and has been blackmailing global banks for years.

But now technology is providing another option.

Banks don’t have to use the US banking system anymore; they can send real-time payments internationally using the Ripple protocol.

All the Ways Your Wi-Fi Router Can Spy on You

Using more precise sensors, the same MIT researchers went on to develop systems that can distinguish between different people standing behind walls, and remotely monitor breathing and heart rates with 99 percent accuracy. Antichrist NWO 666 President Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE Clown got a glimpse of the latter technology during last year’s White House Demo Day in the form of Emerald, a device geared towards elderly people that can detect physical activity and falls throughout an entire home. The device even tries to predict falls before they happen by monitoring a person’s movement patterns.)

Beyond human identification and general gesture recognition, Wi-Fi signals can be used to discern even the slightest of movements with extreme precision.

A system called “WiKey” presented at a conference last year could tell what keys a user was pressing on a keyboard by monitoring minute finger movements. Once trained, WiKey could recognize a sentence as it was typed with 93.5 percent accuracy—all using nothing but a commercially available router and some custom code created by the researchers.

And a group of researchers led by a Berkeley Ph.D. student presented technology at a 2014 conference that could “hear” what people were saying by analyzing the distortions and reflections in Wi-Fi signals created by their moving mouths. The system could determine which words from a list of lip-readable vocabulary were being said with 91 percent accuracy when one person was speaking, and 74 percent accuracy when three people were speaking at the same time.

Many researchers presented their Wi-Fi sensing technology as a way to preserve privacy while still capturing important data. Instead of using cameras to monitor a space—recording and preserving everything that happens in detail—a router-based system could detect movements or actions without intruding too much, they said.

Antichrist NWO 666 Barack Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change No Boots SPECTRE POTUS Clown May Have Finally Destroyed America’s #1 Advantage

Two months ago a Canadian financial services company sent the first-ever institutional cross-border payment to a German bank.

This isn’t some wild theory or conjecture. It’s actually happening.

Just this morning a group of 15 banks in Japan signed up to start using Ripple, and dozens of banks plan to use the protocol within the next six months.

The technology is cheaper. Faster. Superior. And it doesn’t come with any US government strings attached.

So it seems Uncle Sam may have finally shot himself in the foot for the last time.

What meteorologists are calling a massive monsoon gyre has produced three named tropical storms in the Northwest Pacific Ocean on August 19, 2016, and all three of them are simultaneously threatening Japan. The Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) named them Mindulle, Lionrock, and Kompasu.

Massive monsoon gyre generates 3 tropical cyclones near Japan

According to the American Meteorological Society (AMS), a monsoon gyre is a convection of the summer monsoon circulation of the western North Pacific characterized by 1) a very large nearly circular low-level cyclonic vortex (not the result of the expanding wind field of a preexisting monsoon depression or tropical cyclone) that has an outermost closed isobar with a diameter on the order of 1 200 nautical miles (2 500 km / 1 380 miles); 2) a cloud band bordering the southern through eastern periphery of the vortex/surface low; and 3) a relatively long (two week) life span.

Typhoon “Mindulle” made landfall near Tateyama on the Boso Peninsula in Chiba prefecture, Japan around 03:30 UTC (12:30 JST) on Monday, August 22, 2016. It had maximum sustained winds of 126 km/h (78.3 mph) and gusts as high as 180 km/h (112 mph) at the time of landfall, the equivalent of a category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Mindulle is now heading towards its second landfall, this time near Samani in Hokkaido.

Hachijo Island south of Tokyo and Izu, Shizuoka prefecture measured rainfall of 86 mm (3.4 inches) per hour, a record for August, The Japan Times reported.

The typhoon left at least one person dead and 29 injured. According to the Kanagawa Prefectural Police, a 58-year-old woman in Sagamihara was found clinging to a guardrail on flooded National Route 129 and was swept away by the water. Firefighters were able to rescue the woman who was then taken unconscious to a hospital, however, she died later in the day.

American is being set up to be destroyed in WW III as a result with the coming war with the BRIC nations along with some very timely and treasonous help from the inside. Further, we have major think tank organizations as well as a prominent CIA front organization publishing data and projections which reinforces all the Agenda 21 claims that have been made for 20 years. Namely, the United States is going to experience a series of major depopulation events as the landscape of this country will change forever as we will be moved into the hellish Agenda 21 projected cities of the future. The data sets that I am presently working on strongly suggests that we are much closer to these realities than many of us would have anticipated.

A very strong earthquake registered by the USGS as M6.8 hit Myanmar at 10:34 UTC on August 24, 2016. The agency is reporting a depth of 84.1 km (52.2 miles).

The epicenter was located 25 km (15.5 miles) W of Chauk (population 90 870), 58.8 km (36.5 miles) NNW of Yenangyaung (population 110 553), 69.8 km (43.4 miles) SW of Pakokku (population 126 938), 87.4 km (54.3 miles) NNW of Minbu (population 57 342) and 92.8 km (57.7 miles) NNW of Magway (population 96 954), Myanmar.

There are 3 788 932 people living within 100 km (62 miles). 1 million people are living within 50 km (31 miles).

USGS issued a yellow alert for shaking-related fatalities and economic losses. Some casualties and damage are possible and the impact should be relatively localized. Past yellow alerts have required a local or regional level response.

Estimated economic losses are less than 1% of GDP of Myanmar

On Wednesday evening (Aug. 24) as darkness falls, check out the south-southwest sky to see an eye-catching planetary/stellar lineup consisting of three radiant points of light: two bright planets and one of the brightest and most colorful stars in the sky.Tuesday (Aug. 23) a somewhat less straight — but still striking — line-up of the three will be visible.

The two planets — yellow-orange Mars and yellow-white Saturn — will appear to form a nearly perfect vertical line in the sky with the 15th brightest star, the reddish supergiant Antares.

Interestingly, the name Antares means “rival of Mars.” (“Anti” comes from the Greek word for “against,” and Ares was the ancient Greek god of war, whereas Mars was the Roman war god.) In fact, Mars will pass 1.8 degrees above Antares, and it will shine at a brilliant magnitude of minus 0.4; Antares, by comparison, will shine at magnitude 1.0 (lower magnitudes appear brighter), making Mars more than three times brighter than its rival

However, Mars will appear more of a yellow-orange color, whereas Antares is one of the reddest stars in the sky. So although Mars will appear much brighter, Antares will stand out for its bood-red color. Perhaps that is why the ancient stargazers considered it to be Mars’ rival.

Saturn will be situated 4.2 degrees above Mars — the highest of the three bright objects. In terms of brightness, the ringed planet will play the “middleman” in the trio. At magnitude 0.4, Saturn will shine with only half the luster of Mars, and it will appear almost twice as bright as Antares. Saturn will appear to hover directly above both Mars and Antares; the distance between Saturn and Antares will measure 6 degrees. Your clenched fist measures roughly 10 degrees in width when held at arm’s length, so the length of the Saturn-Mars-Antares lineup will stretch a bit more than half a fist.

Though all three points on the line resemble stars, only Antares will appear to twinkle. It is, after all, just a pinpoint of light from our vantage point. It is hundreds of times larger than our sun, at a distance of 550 light-years (3.3 quadrillion miles, or 5.3 quadrillion kilometers). But it looks like a glowing dot, even in large telescopes, whose light is easily distorted by our churning atmosphere — hence the twinkling effect.

In contrast, Mars is only 79 million miles (127 million km), and Saturn is 916 million miles (1.474 billion km) from Earth on that day; they appear as disks through telescopes, so they very rarely appear to twinkle.

The star and two planets will appear to be aligned perfectly at 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT), but at that time, it will still be daytime across much of North America; viewers will have to wait until darkness falls to easily see the line. Mars will be edging slowly away to the east (left); it will be moving much faster than Saturn, and by the time it gets dark along the West Coast, skywatchers there will see a line that is not precisely straight, with Mars a bit more to the east as compared to Saturn and Antares. That should be even more readily apparent on Thursday evening and in the days that follow, as the trio morphs into a slowly widening triangle.

Mars, Saturn and Antares to Line Up in Night Sky This Week: How to See It

A severe earthquake registered by the EMSC as M6.2 hit central Italy at 01:36 UTC on August 24, 2016. The agency is reporting a depth of 4 km (2.48 miles). USGS is reporting M6.2 at a depth of 10 km (6.2 miles). The tremors lasted for about 20-30 seconds, eyewitnesses say. Numerous aftershocks are shaking the region.

As of 17:13 UTC, the death toll has risen to 73. Many people are still believed buried under the rubble, and the death toll is expected to rise.

According to the EMSC, the epicenter was located 14 km (8.6 miles) E of Maltignano (population 2 514), 43 km (26.7 miles) N of L’Aquila (population 68 503), and 109 km (67.7 miles) NE of Roma (population 2 563 241), Italy.

Italy’s civil protection agency said the earthquake was “severe” and that national emergency procedures had been activated.

There are 2 661 034 people living within 100 km (6.2 miles). 1.1 million people are living within 75 km (46.6 miles), 260 000 within 50 km (31.8 miles).

USGS issued orange alert level for shaking-related fatalities. Significant casualties are likely.

A red alert level was issued for economic losses. Extensive damage is probable and the disaster is likely widespread. Estimated economic losses are less than 1% of GDP of Italy. Past events with this alert level have required a national or international level response.

Overall, the population in this region resides in structures that are a mix of vulnerable and earthquake resistant construction. The predominant vulnerable building types are unreinforced brick with mud and mid-rise nonductile concrete frame with infill construction.

Recent earthquakes in this area have caused secondary hazards such as landslides that might have contributed to losses.

EMSC registered 64 aftershocks (M1.6 – 5.5) by 05:31 UTC

Extremely dangerous M6.2 earthquake hits central Italy, massive damage, numerous aftershocks

It has been a tragic day for Italy, where after last night’s M6.2 earthquake, at least 84 people are now confirmed dead, and thousands have been left homeless.

As we reported earlier, the quake struck in the early hours of the morning when most residents were asleep, razing homes and buckling roads in a cluster of communities some 140 km (85 miles) east of Rome. It was powerful enough to be felt in Bologna to the north and Naples to the south, each more than 220 km from the epicenter. A family of four, including two boys aged 8 months and 9 years, were buried when their house in Accumoli imploded.

Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said he would visit the disaster area later in the day: “No one will be left alone, no family, no community, no neighborhood. We must get down to work .. to restore hope to this area which has been so badly hit,” he said in a brief televised address.

A spokeswoman for the civil protection department, Immacolata Postiglione, said the dead were in Amatrice, Accumoli and other villages including Pescara del Tronto and Arquata del Tronto.

VIX Crushed, Stocks Spike – Does Someone Know Something?

SOLAR SECTOR BOUNDARY CROSSING: On Aug. 28th, Earth will cross a fold in the heliospheric current sheet. This “solar sector boundary crossing” could disturb our planet’s magnetic field and spark auroras at high latitudes. NOAA forecasters estimate a 25% chance of G1-class geomagnetic storms. Aurora alerts: text or voice

SUNSET CONJUNCTION: Venus and Jupiter are converging for a beautiful conjunction in the sunset sky. The best place to see it is the southern hemisphere. Helio C. Vital sends this picture from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:

Shown in the photos are Venus, Jupiter and Mercury forming a triangle in Rio’s evening twilight sky,” says Vital. “Ascending Venus can be seen 3.1° below descending Jupiter as they quickly approach each other, heading for a very close encounter on Aug. 27th.”

http://www.spaceweather.com

At closest approach on Saturday evening, the two worlds will appear only about 1/15th of a degree apart. If you hold a pencil at arm’s length, the eraser would cover both planets at once. Moreover, Venus and Jupiter will easily fit within a telescopic field of view–an amazing sight if you have a backyard telescope.

As easy as this is to see in the southern hemisphere, it will be difficult to see on the other side of the equator. In the northern hemisphere, the planets hug the horizon at sunset, barely visible in the bright orange glow of early twilight. Northerners, monitor the photo gallery to see what you are missing.

FTSE 100 rises as Janet Yellen says case for US rate hike has ‘strengthened’

As we head into her speech, gold is rallying, oil is up, bond yields are tumbling, stocks were panic bid and vol dumped.

And here we go. Here are the key highlights from Yellen’s speech:

YELLEN SAYS RATE-HIKE CASE `HAS STRENGTHENED IN RECENT MONTHS’
YELLEN SAYS ECONOMY NEARING FED’S EMPLOYMENT, INFLATION GOALS
YELLEN: FOMC NOT ACTIVELY CONSIDERING ADDITIONAL TOOLS
YELLEN SAYS GROWTH NOT RAPID BUT ENOUGH TO IMPROVE LABOR MKT
YELLEN SAYS FISCAL POLICY COULD ENHANCE ECONOMIC STABILITY
YELLEN: EXPECTS MODERATE US GDP GROWTH, LBR MKT STRENGTHENING
YELLEN: STILL, OUTLOOK UNCERTAIN, HIKES NOT ON PRESET COURSE
YELLEN: RANGE OF REASONABLY LIKELY OUTCOMES FOR FFR QUITE WIDE
YELLEN: ECON FREQUENTLY BUFFETED BY SHOCKS, RARELY AS PREDICTD
YELLEN: GROWTH ‘SUFFICIENT’ TO GENERATE GAINS IN LABOR MARKET
YELLEN: SUBDUED FGN DEMAND, USD APPREC CONT TO RESTRAIN EXPORT
YELLEN: US ECON ‘CONTINUES TO EXPAND,’ LED BY HHLD SPNDING
YELLEN: US BUSINESS INVESTMENT REMAINS SOFT
YELLEN: FOMC TOOLKIT TO RAISE RATES PROVED EFFECTIVE LAST DEC
YELLEN: ABILITY TO PAY IOER LIKELY TO PLAY KEY ROLE FOR YEARS
YELLEN: SOME ESTIMATES PUT REAL NEUTRAL RATE CLOSE TO ZERO
YELLEN: EXPECT FWD GUID, ASSET PURCHASES REMAIN CRITICAL TOOLS
Here are the key segments:

A Hawkish Yellen Emerges: “The Rate Hike Case Has Strengthened In Recent Months”

In light of the continued solid performance of the labor market and our outlook for economic activity and inflation, I believe the case for an increase in the federal funds rate has strengthened in recent months.
On the Fed’s policy options, especially potentially selling off its $4 trillion balance sheet.

“Hawkish” Yellen Speech Sparks Buying Spree In Everything (Except Dollars)

The US Dollar is being dumped after Yellen’s apparently ‘hawkish’ speech as the market appears to have latched onto one sentence…”future policymakers may wish to explore the possibility of purchasing a broader range of assets.” Stocks are up, gold is up, bonds are up, oil is up…

Rate hike odds are dropping…

The USD is dumping…

Asset prices are soaring…

As VIX is crushed…

For a big roundtriup in Stocks, bonds, and gold…

Oil Spikes On Antichrist Iran Report Antichrist Saudi Aramco Facilities Hit By Yemen Missiles

While oil is spiking thanks to the dollar’s kneejerk reaction lower following Yellen’s (not really) hawkish speech, another reason for the move higher appears to be an unconfirmed report by Iran’s PressTV that Yemeni forces have fired ballistic missiles at the facilities belonging to the Antichrist Saudi state oil giant Aramco in the Antichrist kingdom’s southwest.

From the report:

The retaliatory attack took place on Friday, hitting targets in Antichrist Saudi Arabia’s Jizan region and causing considerable damage to the Aramco facilities there, Yemen’s al-Masirah television reported.

The Antichrist Saudi military has been pounding Yemen since March last year to undermine Yemen’s Houthi Ansarullah movement and to restore power to the former president, Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi, a staunch ally of Riyadh.

Nearly 10,000 people, most of them civilians, have been killed in Riyadh’s military aggression which lacks any international mandate.

Also on Friday, Antichrist Saudi fighters struck residential areas in the Baqim district of the northwestern Yemen province of Sa’ada, killing 11 people.

A day earlier, the fighters had hit a bazaar in the district, killing seven people and injuring 10 others, many of whom are in critical condition.

On Thursday, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein said the Antichrist Saudi military was using cluster bombs against residential areas in Yemen in violation of international law, blaming the Riyadh regime for most of the civilian casualties in its impoverished southern neighbor.

HIstorically, the accuracy of PressTV reports has been spotty at best, so waiting for confirmation may be prudent, although as of this moment algos are buying first and not even bothering to ask questions.
