Attorney and public banking expert Ellen Brown says the recent Obama trade deal is bad news. Brown contends, “We don’t even know how bad it is. All we know we got out of WikiLeaks. It’s all secret. They are negotiating what would be called a treaty which should require a two-thirds vote under the Constitution. They are negotiating it for “fast-track” and it is completely secret. . . . These documents are supposed to be kept classified for four years after this thing passes. How is that even possible? There are two other agreements that are coming down the pipe that are also covered by “fast-track,” which means they go directly to an up or down vote. Only get a brief time to look at it. They don’t get to use filibusters. They don’t get to debate. Besides the TPP (Trans Pacific Partnership) which is bad enough because what we know of it is horrible, there is the Trans-Atlantic Agreement which is similar to the TPP with Pacific Rim countries. There’s another one that we only just heard about which is the TiSA, which is the Trade in Services Agreement. This covers 80% of the American economy and all sorts of services, including financial services, which means banking. So, we can’t regulate banking anymore, and that is basically what it means.” …
The United States Drought Monitor map is showing that 78% of the state is currently experiencing an “exceptional drought” stage. This represents a 22% increase from just a year ago.
Droughts can prove devastating to a community as widespread crop and pasture losses and shortages of water in reservoirs, streams and wells accompany drought conditions.
Exceptional drought, the most extreme category, indicates the most extreme conditions of drought and is considered to be a precursor to mass migration.
Lynne Wilson, who serves on the climate change delegation in the United Nations, “Civilizations in the past have had to migrate out of areas of drought. We may have to migrate people out of California.”
It seems certain that at this rate of increasing drought, millions of Americans, presently living in California, better begin packing their collective bags because it could soon be moving day.
At this point, people are undoubtedly wondering if there isn’t something that can be done to save California from this massive drought?
The Air Force Has the Solution to California’s Drought
Since its first publication, “Owning the Weather 2025“, and “The Weather As a Force Multiplier“, both published in 1996, the Air Force has made it clear that it has the capability to control the weather to the degree that their documents admit that they can weaponize both weather and earthquakes (see Exhibit 2 in the Appendix). Before you wrinkle your nose up and fall back on the phrase that so many have been conditioned by, “You must be a conspiracy theorist”, I have published the Air Force’s annotated bibliography on this subject of weather modification which is listed below in the Appendix (see Exhibit 1). I dare any reasonable person to read the data contained in the Appendix and not be able to conclude that the California drought , now in Arizona, now in New Mexico, now in Nevada and et al, in the Southwest, is not being artificially manipulated.
The Air Force actually maintains a separate entity in its branch known as the “Air Force Weather Agency”. Its mission is weather modification.
I am going to stop short of saying this Air Force agency created the drought conditions. Although, a circumstantial case can be made that major political capital and money is at stake in the California drought. Further, the Air Force clearly has the ability to mitigate the situation. (see Exhibits 1,2,3 located in the Appendix). Additionally, don’t the citizens of California pay taxes to the federal government who in turn, oversees the Air Force? Then why aren’t the full resources of the Air Force Weather Agency being brought to bear in this crisis? Further, why isn’t a massive cloud seeding program being implemented in California’s mountains? I grew up in Colorado and when the ski season was delayed by late snowfalls, the state simply “seeded” the clouds to expedite the process. If this worked in Colorado in the 20th century, then why would it not work in California in the 21st century?The simple answer is because that is not the plan. …
It’s quite obvious that the people who exported our jobs, deliberately wrecked the economy and are busy trying to start a war which would kill millions of americans have a plan. Can you guess what it is?
We’ll all be much safer when we have no way to protect ourselves. See how that works? Kinda like “herd immunity”. Suspension of disbelief is key. You have to trust in the benevolence of your authority figures. Remember what they did during WWII with their puppet in germany? So you’d better do as you’re told.
Not to be outdone by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in calling for civilian disarmament, the United Nations is taking advantage of the Charleston shootings to join the chorus of confiscators.
In a statement issued on June 19 by the United Nations Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent (yes, that actually exists), committee chairwoman Mireille Fanon Mendes-France demanded that “urgent measures must be taken to prevent gun violence.” Making a point of distinguishing this crime for its effect on “the security of Afro-Americans,” the UN group sent their “heartfelt condolences to the people of the United States of America.”
If the United Nations has its way, there will much more to mourn about in the United States of America. As part of the global effort to grant monopoly control of weapons of all sizes to UN-approved “state actors,” the Arms Trade Treaty mandates the forcible disarmament of all others.
The scheme was endorsed in the “name of the people of the United States” by Secretary of State John Kerry on September 25, 2013.
“I am very pleased to have signed this treaty here today. I signed it because President Obama knows that from decades of efforts that at any time that we work with — cooperatively to address the illicit trade in conventional weapons, we make the world a safer place. And this treaty is a significant step in that effort,” Kerry said at the signing ceremony. …
Innocence Betrayed: The Real Story of Gun Control
Paul Craig Roberts: “It is extraordinary that the cooperation between Russia and the US created over the decades by successive administrations, beginning with John F. Kennedy and culminating in the end of the Cold War with the Reagan-Gorbachev agreements, has been destroyed by a handful of American neoconservative warmongers in the past year and one-half. The achievement of a 40-year struggle has been wiped out overnight by a handful of insane warmongers who believe that Washington has a right to world hegemony. Thanks to the crazed neoconservatives, nuclear war is again a specter that haunts mankind. …
“At the just concluded St. Petersburg International Economic Forum to which I was invited but was unable to go, which I regret as I might have been introduced to Putin, Putin gave believable assurances to a large array of foreign businesses present that Russia was committed to the rule of law and that their activities in Russia are safe. If you believe any of the propaganda fed to you by the Western presstitutes, including Bloomberg, about the “collapsing Russian economy,” you can disabuse yourself of the lies by reading Putin’s account of the Russian economy. http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/transcripts/49733
“Of more interest is the interview Putin gave to the outmatched American presstitute, Charlie Rose. For your convenience, here is the interview …”
The fed caused 2008, and now they’re making it worse. But it’s all a terrible misunderstanding, not a business model.
The 2008 crash was a warm up.
Many investors think that we could never have a crash again. The 2008 melt-down was a one in 100 years episode, they think.
They are wrong.
The 2008 Crisis was a stock and investment bank crisis. But it was not THE Crisis.
THE Crisis concerns the biggest bubble in financial history: the epic Bond bubble… which as it stands is north of $100 trillion… although if you include the derivatives that trade based on bonds it’s more like $500 TRILLION.
The Fed likes to act as though it’s concerned about stocks… but the real story is in bonds. Indeed, when you look at the Fed’s actions from the perspective of the bond market, everything suddenly becomes clear.
Bonds are debt. A bond is created when a borrower borrows money from a lender. And at the top of the financial food chain are sovereign bonds like US Treasuries.
These bonds are created when someone lends the US money. Why would they do this? Because the US SPENDS more money than it TAKES IN via taxes. So it issues debt to cover its extra expenses.
This cycle continued for over 30 years until today, when the US has over $11 TRILLION in size. Because we never actually pay our debt off (or rarely do), what we do is ROLL OVER debt when it comes due, so that investors continue to receive interest payments but never actually get the money back… because the US Government doesn’t have it… because it’s still spending more money than it takes in via taxes.
This is why the Fed cut interest rates to zero and will likely do everything in its power to keep them low: even a small raise in interest rates makes all of this debt MORE expensive to pay off.
This is also why the Fed had the regulators drop accounting standards for derivatives… because if banks and financial firms had to accurately value their hundreds of trillions of derivatives trades based on bonds, investors would be terrified at the amount of leverage and the margin calls would begin…..
Recently, it’s become readily apparent that some of the world’s top money managers are getting concerned about what might happen when a mass exodus from bond funds collides head on with a completely illiquid secondary market for corporate credit.
Indeed, bond market illiquidity is the topic du jour and has almost become something of a cliche among pundits and mainstream financial media outlets years after we first raised the issue in these pages. But just because something has become fashionable to discuss doesn’t mean it’s not worth discussing and indeed, we’re at least pleased to see that the world is suddenly awake to the fact that a primary market supply bonanza catalyzed by rock-bottom borrowing costs and yield-starved investors could spell disaster when paired with shrinking dealer inventories.
For illustrative purposes, here’s a look at turnover in corporate credit…
Michelle Rowton of Nurses Against Mandatory Vaccinations (NAMV, www.namv.org) revealed in an Infowars interview on May 1, 2015 that it was well known amongst medical professionals that vaccinating preemies and low birth weight infants “on schedule” would immediately result in adverse effects post-immunization.
A month later, on June 1, 2015, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published a study that verified not only the risks of adverse events to low birth weight infants, but also confirmed the callous attitude of the medical community to the harm their rigid vaccine schedule inflicts.
The article is here:
DeMeo, Stephen D., et al. “Adverse Events After Routine Immunization of Extremely Low-Birth-Weight Infants.” JAMA pediatrics (2015).
Psychopathy is certainly a major problem in american medicine.
Because the agenda is war at any cost (our cost) and the money comes from nowhere and only dilutes currency in circulation anyway, which mostly impacts the 99%. No problem.
The IMF, whose bailout operations are absorbed by the taxpayers in the member countries whenever a particular bailed-out nation defaults, announced on Friday, June 19th, that it will “continue to support Ukraine through its Lending-into-Arrears Policy even in the event that a negotiated agreement with creditors in line with the program cannot be reached in a timely manner.” Though this new “Lending-into-Arrears” policy violates two IMF rules, it was justified by the IMF’s Managing Director Christine Lagarde on the basis of the Ukrainian government’s “continued efforts to reach a collaborative agreement with all creditors.” …
US criminal economics: TPP secret treaty = ‘constitutional republic,’ debt = ‘money’, 500 million+ dead from poverty = ‘necessary.’ Had enough to demand arrests?
hat tip: Ellen Brown, Web of Debt Blog
“Psychopaths are unable to form emotional attachments or feel real empathy with others, although they often have disarming or even charming personalities. Psychopaths are very manipulative and can easily gain people’s trust. They learn to mimic emotions, despite their inability to actually feel them, and will appear normal to unsuspecting people… When committing crimes, psychopaths carefully plan out every detail in advance and often have contingency plans in place. Unlike their sociopathic counterparts, psychopathic criminals are cool, calm, and meticulous.” – Psychology Today
The .01% psychopathic oligarch “leaders” (and here) in US government, banking/finance, and corporate media wage war upon the 99.99% in ~100 crucial areas. Aside from lie-began overt unlawful military Wars of Aggression connected to economic domination with the US starting over 200 such armed attacks since WW2 and war-murdering ~30 million people (with these crimes “covered” by corporate media, let’s consider three central economic policies:
- Attempting to pass TPP (so-called, “Trans-Pacific Partnership”) to remain a classified “secret treaty” for four years if passed, and without the US Constitutional requirement of 2/3 Senate approval. This is clear to anyone with a high school US government class as illegal and the Orwellian opposite oflimited government under a representative constitutional republic. This is unlimited government with “rules” dictated as they go.
- Claiming that US escalating total debt is a “money” supply, despite the fact that creating what we use as money as debt is the same as adding negative numbers forever, and clear to anyone with a middle school mathematics education that such mechanics can only increase the total debt and interest totals forever. This “debt supply” guarantees increasing and unpayable debt to the big banks who create the debt out of nothing, and is fundamental fraud with harm in annual trillions of dollars to claim debt rather than debt-free money is “good for us” (full documentation). Government leaders have legal fiduciary responsibility to best represent the American public.
- Claiming that ~ one million children dying every month in gruesomely slow and painful deaths from poverty is an economic necessity because we don’t have “enough money,” despite the facts that money is paper, the investment is less than 1% of income (which developed nations continuously promise and then fail to deliver), this reduces population growth rates in every historical case, and the CIA claims this is the best way to end global terrorism. The total number of deaths from preventable poverty since just 1975 is ~500 million; more than all deaths from all wars and acts of violence in all recorded human history (full documentation of all poverty claims). These are Crimes against Humanity for the systemic mass-murders of millions while supporting policies such as TPP as a “race to the bottom” to further animalize human labor.
The above three bullet points summarize, with the links providing complete and professional documentation. Those of us working for reforms are unaware of even any attempts to refute our factual claims; our experience is as attributed to Gandhi:
“First they ignore you.
Then they laugh at you.
Then they fight you.
And then you win.” …
