Christian parents jailed

In Germany, several parents have been jailed for keeping their children from attending sex-education programs at school.

Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) legal counsel Roger Kiska tells OneNewsNow that the German school system has made it mandatory for nine- and ten-year-olds to participate in the programs, including an interactive play.

"The purpose of the play, they say, is to prevent abuse," says Kiska, "but what they're teaching is that if it feels good, do it."

According to the attorney, many Christian parents objected to the programs' content. "They believed that under international law and [under] German law, they had every right to remove their children from those classes and instill in their children their own Christian beliefs about sexuality and love and marriage and chastity -- and for this, ten parents have been sent to jail."

One mother remains in jail. ADF has filed an emergency order to the European Courts of Human Rights calling for her immediate release.

"The German government, for some reason, believes that they're better placed than the children's own parents to raise them and instill their own values -- [but] that's not what the law says and that's not the way it should be," Kiska explains.

"Parents are the primary caregivers of their children," he continues. "The fact that these most basic parental rights are being denied is a travesty -- and the fact that a women now sits in jail for exercising those very rights is unbelievable."

The imprisoned parents have also been fined the equivalent of nearly $1,300 (U.S.).

U.S. Dollar Collapse Could Occur at Any Time

China this morning reported 4.9% price inflation for the month of February, exceeding analyst expectations of 4.8%. With China now mimicking the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and taking steps to artificially manipulate their consumer price index (CPI) numbers as low as possible, it is likely that real price inflation in China is now closer to 10%. China was at least smart enough to raise interest rates last month by 25 basis points to 6.06%, while the Federal Reserve continues to leave interest rates near zero with there being absolutely no talk of the Federal Reserve ever raising interest rates again. China will be successful at containing inflation, as U.S. inflation spirals out of control and becomes the greatest economic crisis in American history.
China this week reported a $7.3 billion trade deficit for the month of February, its largest trade deficit in seven years, which surprised many global economists. NIA believes China's trade deficit is temporary and that China will quickly return to having a trade surplus. The Federal Reserve's QE2 along with China's destructive monetary policies, which artificially devalue the yuan, have led to a massive rise in China's raw material costs this year. NIA believes that in the upcoming months, Chinese manufacturers will raise the prices of their products that get exported to the U.S., to counteract rising commodity prices. With most products used by Americans today having been manufactured in China, this will mean Americans will soon see massive price inflation in just about all consumer goods they use. NIA projects that by the end of 2011, we will begin to see the U.S. CPI increase by 4.9% or higher on a year-over-year basis, with real U.S. price inflation rising north of 10%.
The mainstream media is proclaiming that China's trade deficit will silence calls for the Chinese to allow their currency to strengthen against the U.S. dollar. The fact is, China's government has for long been making the major mistake of printing too many yuan in order to artificially prop up the U.S. dollar. Their fear was, if the U.S. dollar was allowed to decline too rapidly, prices of Chinese goods would rise in terms of U.S. dollars and Americans would no longer afford to import them.
The truth is, if China allowed the yuan to strengthen, the Chinese would have enjoyed a much higher standard of living. Sure, prices would rise in dollars and Americans would import less, but the Chinese would have the ability to consume more of their own products. Now, as a result of China expanding its own money supply in order to keep the yuan pegged to the U.S. dollar, Americans will be forced to pay a much higher price for Chinese goods anyway. The same higher prices Americans were going to pay as a result of exchange rate appreciation, Americans will now pay as a result of inflation. For the Chinese, the exchange rate appreciation route would have been a much better route to take than the inflation route, because now the Chinese will also be forced to pay higher prices. In the very short-term, China might actually suffer more than the U.S. because they lack the social safety nets that have been implemented here in America.
The U.S. government has been successful at temporarily paying off Americans into not rioting in the streets like in Arab nations. It was just announced a few days ago that the number of Americans on food stamps in the month of December of 2010 was a record 44,082,324, up 13.1% from one year earlier and 1.1% from one month earlier. That is more than 14% of the total U.S. population! Combined with President Obama extending unemployment benefits up to 99 weeks, American citizens are too busy and distracted playing with their iPad 2s and gossiping on Twitter about Charlie Sheen, to have any time to protest in Washington, DC.
NIA believes the U.S. government's entitlement spending is currently having the unintended consequence of making Americans dependent on government. It is like when you take wild animals into captivity and you feed them, teach them to do tricks and take care of them for a period of many years; if you just dump them one day back into the wild, it will be very difficult for them to survive. Americans who have become dependent on unemployment checks and food stamps will likely soon abruptly find out that they must begin to fend for themselves without any help from the government. The result will be many Americans turning into wild animals and becoming so desperate that they will have to rob and burglarize their fellow neighbors who were smart enough to prepare, or else they will risk starving to death.
As a result of QE2, the Federal Reserve is now buying 70% of U.S. treasuries, up from previously only buying 10% of treasury bonds. Foreign central banks are now buying just 30% of U.S. treasuries, compared to previously buying 50% of treasury bonds. The U.S. budget deficit in the month of February reached a record $222.5 billion or $2.67 trillion on an annualized basis. With the Federal Reserve now monetizing our debt in full swing, a complete and total loss of confidence in the U.S. dollar could be imminent.
Just like how nobody in the mainstream media was calling for the collapse of Egypt's government a few months ago, almost nobody in the media believes a collapse of the U.S. dollar could possibly take place anytime soon. NIA members are educated enough to see that the writing is on the wall. The Federal Reserve can deny all it wants that the U.S. is experiencing inflation, but with the cost to print a single U.S. dollar paper note rising by 50% since 2008, massive inflation is here right under Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's nose. Every day that goes by, China is quietly implementing more and more steps that expand the yuan's use in cross border trade, in order to position the yuan as the world's next reserve currency.
So few Americans are presently preparing for hyperinflation that if hyperinflation broke out today, approximately 90% of Americans won't have the means to put food on the table or put fuel in their automobiles. During the upcoming hyperinflationary crisis, food stamps will no longer have any value at all and all U.S. entitlement programs will come to a complete halt. Americans will take to the streets like the world has never seen before.
The biggest question NIA has today is, will the U.S. government resort to firing at its own citizens, if major riots take place in Washington, DC. On Thursday, police in Saudi Arabia shot and wounded three protesters. The price of oil rose by a few dollars per barrel as soon as this news hit the wire, which shows just how nervous the world's financial markets have become in recent weeks. The fact that the Dow Jones has declined significantly in recent days, in our opinion means that the odds of QE3 being launched as soon as QE2 is over, are now much higher than they were several weeks ago.
The other big question NIA has today is, if in the unlikely event there is no QE3, who will fill in for the artificial buying demand currently coming from the Federal Reserve. After all, with no QE3, the Federal Reserve will go from buying 70% of treasury bonds to being a seller of U.S. treasuries. NIA is 100% sure that foreign central banks aren't itching to jump back in to fill the hole. While in the past, the private sector may have picked up the slack, we believe individual investors will now be more reluctant to jump into government bonds, especially with bond king Bill Gross reducing the government bond holdings in his Pimco Total Return Fund down to zero. The bottom line is, no QE3 means interest rates will fly sky high and destroy the phony so-called "economic recovery".
From April to August of 2010, the last time the Federal Reserve allowed its balance sheet to shrink, the Dow Jones fell by over 1,000 points. If Bernanke doesn't soon begin to leak out the strong likelihood of QE3, we could see the stock market decline by 1,000 points or more, which will force Bernanke into launching QE3. If we see a major sell off in stocks, NIA doesn't necessarily think that precious metals prices will follow. In fact, we could see gold and silver rise along with the Dow Jones falling. NIA projects the Dow Jones to gold ratio to decline to 6.5 in 2011. This means even if the Dow Jones fell to below 11,000, we still believe gold is likely to rise to around $1,600 to $1,700 per ounce this year, with silver soaring to around $42 to $44 per ounce. NIA believes the worst decision any American can make is to sell their gold and silver and go long U.S. dollars, hoping to buy their precious metals back at a lower price in the future.

Now people said: no more nuclear plants!!!

Because of the Japanese nuclear problem now the people does not want nuclear plants

I made a mix of news for this, the thing is that protest of anti nuclear plants are spreading over the world.

I question , which is going to be the short term solution for this...maybe more oil at $105 per barrel?

The nuclear power has been prove as one of the more cleaner and efficient forms of energy (despite Chernobyl)

But as a great chess game, this Japanese incident implode their economy, their refinery, and produce a desire of shouting down all the nuclear plants which will generate carbon taxes, because of the shortage.

From BBC:

Thousands protest against Germany's nuclear plants

Demonstrators in Stuttgart formed a human chain reaching 45km (27 miles) for the protest, planned before the current nuclear crisis in Japan.

Organisers said events in Japan had proved atomic power was an uncontrollable and risky technology.

Nuclear policy is a key issue in German regional elections this year.

About 60,000 people turned out for the protest, according to organisers. Police said the number was in the tens of thousands.

The demonstrators formed a human chain between Stuttgart and the Neckarwestheim nuclear plant, waving yellow flags with the slogan "Nuclear power - no thanks".


Senator calls for moratorium on US nuclear plants

The United States should "put the brakes" on the development of nuclearpower plants as the disaster in Japan unfolds, key US senator Joe Liebermansaid Sunday.

"I've been a big supporter of nuclear power because it's domestic -- it's ours and it's clean," Lieberman told the CBS News television program "Face The Nation."

"We've had a good safety (record) with nuclear power plants here in the United States," he said.

Still, "I think we've got to kind of quietly and quickly put the brakes on until we can absorb what has happened in Japan as a result of the earthquake and the tsunami and then see what more, if anything, we can demand of the newpower plants that are coming online," said Lieberman, who is chairman of theSenate Homeland Security Committee.

Friday's devastating 8.9 earthquake and subsequent tsunami sparked an emergency at two of Japan's nuclear power plants, leading to the risk of catastrophic meltdowns.

Japan stocks plunge on 1st trading day after quake

BANGKOK (AP) - The Tokyo stock market plunged Monday, its first business day after an earthquake and tsunami of epic proportions laid waste to cities along Japan's northeast coast, killing thousands and causing tens of billions of dollars in damage. Shares elsewhere in Asia were mixed, while Europe mostly fell.

Oil prices dropped below $99 a barrel, with the disaster threatening to send Japan, the world's third-largest economy, into a recession that could crimp demand for crude. In currencies, the dollar was down against the yen and the euro.

In early European trading, Britain's FTSE 100 was down 0.4 percent at 5,806.75 while Germany's DAX slid 1.8 percent to 6,858.84. France's CAC-40 was 0.6 percent lower at 3,905.42. Wall Street looked set to head south, with Dow Jones industrial futures down 0.7 percent to 11,923 and S&P 500 futures 0.8 percent lower to 1,291.

In one of the most dizzying days for Japan's stock market since the 2008 financial crisis, the benchmark Nikkei 225 dived 633.94 points, or 6.2 percent, to close at 9,620.49—wiping out this year's gains and hitting its lowest level in four months.

Worries about the economic impact of Friday's disaster, including massive power shortages that could disrupt factories, triggered a broad sell-off that hit all sectors. The broader Topix index was down 7.5 percent.

The sell-off came even as the Bank of Japan injected a record 15 trillion yen ($183.8 billion) into money markets to try to defend the already fragile economy. By flooding the banking system with cash, the central bank hopes banks will continue lending money and meet the likely surge in demand for post-earthquake funds.

Shares of Tokyo Electric Power Co. nose-dived more than 23 percent as it struggled with malfunctioning nuclear reactors and a power shortage that led the company to warn it may need to ration electricity.
Companies with nuclear power-related businesses registered staggering losses, including Hitachi Ltd., down 16.2 percent, and Toshiba Corp., down 16.3 percent. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries slumped 10 percent and Kobe Steel Ltd. skidded 6.4 percent.

Car makers declined partly because quake-stricken northeastern Japan is a major center for auto production, complete with a myriad of parts suppliers and a network of roads and ports for efficient distribution. Major vehicle manufactures have halted production around the country.

Toyota Motor Corp., the world's largest automaker, fell 7.9 percent, Honda lost 6.5 percent, and Nissan dropped 9.5 percent. Mitsubishi Motors Corp. lost 11.8 percent and Isuzu Motors Ltd. plummeted 9.2 percent.

Insurance companies—many of which will likely face heavy claims for lost property and infrastructure—also suffered sharp drops, including Tokio Marine Holdings Inc., down 12.4 percent. Cosmo Oil, whose refinery has been on fire since the 8.9-magnitude quake, slid by a withering 21.6 percent.

Analysts said the prognosis for Japan's economy in the near term depended heavily on whether it could stave off reactor meltdowns at the stricken Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant. Four nuclear plants in northeastern Japanhave reported damage, but the danger was greatest at the Dai-ichi plant.

Monster aftershock could strike within days

NORTH-EASTERN Japan can expect another monster earthquake large enough to trigger a tsunami within days, the head of the Australian Seismological Centre says.
The director, Kevin McCue, said there had been more than 100 smaller quakes since Friday, but a larger aftershock was likely.
''Normally they happen within days,'' he said. ''The rule of thumb is that you would expect the main aftershock to be one magnitude smaller than the main shock, so you would be expecting a 7.9.
''That's a monster again in its own right that is capable of producing a tsunami and more damage.''
The Japanese quake was the result of a process called thrust faulting. A piece of the Earth's crust broke away at the juncture of the Eurasian and Pacific plates and was thrust underneath the islands of Honshu and Hokkaido.
The US Geological Survey estimated the quake moved the Japanese coast about 2.4 metres.
''It basically pushed the sea floor up and down on opposite sides of the fault by 10 metres, causing the tsunami,'' Dr McCue said. ''It is a sudden rupture that has occurred, but it has occurred because the two plates are converging at about eight centimetres a year and have been for about 100 years. That eight metres is released suddenly when the plate snaps and breaks and produces the earthquake.''
Japan's last earthquake on this scale was in 1923, when the magnitude 7.9 Kanto quake killed more than 100,000 people in and around Tokyo and Yokohama.
The latest Japanese disaster is unrelated to the quake that devastated Christchurch last month, which was caused by a fracturing within the Pacific plate.
A seismology research fellow at the University of Melbourne, Gary Gibson, said the world averages one magnitude 8 quake a year, but the rate was inconsistent. The 1980s and 1990s had far fewer large quakes than average, for example.
''There is more variation than you would expect from a random occurrence of earthquakes, and we really don't have a mechanism to describe why that is the case,'' Dr Gibson said. ''But there is no question that the last two years have been very active and well above average.''
Dr McCue dismissed suggestions that melting glaciers due to global warming could escalate the earthquake risk.

The Effects of 4 Dollar Gas

Yemen, Bahrain, Libya, Iran, Kuwait, Jordon, and possibly even the citizens of Saudi Arabia will potentially follow in the footsteps of the protests in Tunisia and Egypt. Kuwait youth groups took to the streets this week to demand more freedom and the removal of Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser al-Mohammad al-Sabah. Just to give you an idea of what the Kuwaitis are up against, the Sabah family has ruled Kuwait for 250 years. The prime minister is the nephew of the ruler of Kuwait and FutureMoneyTrends.com does not believe we will see a severe uprising like we did in Egypt, however with Kuwaitis protesting, it may add to the momentum of others in the region who are willing to demand a complete regime change in their own nations. Arabs across the region are seeing daily protest from neighboring countries, regime change in Tunisia, Egypt, and a civil war in Libya. Libyan forces loyal to Gadhafi used helicopter gunships, rockets, and gunfire against the opposition this past weekend. Rebel forces continue to slowly advance, however, Gadhafi controls the air which gives him a huge advantage. Right now as we write this we are getting reports from Reuters and Al Jazeera that plumes of smoke are rising from the area around the as-Sider oil terminal in east Libya. If this is Gadhafi fulfilling his promise to go down with a bang, this could become a significant story and add an upward pressure to the price of oil. Currently, markets are also bracing for Saudi protests that are supposed to begin on March 11th. The Saudi government has already warned of severe action against protests, in fact, prince al-Faisal said he would "cut off any finger raised against the regime." We should note that the protesters will mainly be the minority Shiite population, activists have called for a 'Day of Rage" this Friday
Gasoline prices have soared in recent weeks along with oil prices. Many Americans are already paying $4 per gallon and with the middle east still on fire, we could easily see $5 gas prices by the summer. Last night one of our staff members filled up in Southern California for $3.95 and ended up spending $75 to fill up. When you consider that this person has to fill up at least once a week, you are talking about an extra $100 a month in gasoline expenses compared to just a few weeks ago. This is going to hit all Americans, many who are already living on the edge. Right now the U.S. has roughly 43 million people on food stamps and out of the adults in this group, over 40% of them have jobs. Higher fuel prices will cause higher food prices, more layoffs since consumers will have less to spend on other expenses, and more debt. Hopefully $5 dollar gas will be the top, but with QE policies and revolutions there are no guarantees. Of course, we are sure D.C. will play the blame game, since they have only had a 40 year warning about an oil dependency problem.

Quake moved Japan coast 8 feet; shifted Earth's axis

A car is perched on top of a building

The powerful earthquake that unleashed a devastating tsunami Friday appears to have moved the main island of Japan by 8 feet (2.4 meters) and shifted the Earth on its axis.
"At this point, we know that one GPS station moved (8 feet), and we have seen a map from GSI (Geospatial Information Authority) in Japan showing the pattern of shift over a large area is consistent with about that much shift of the land mass," said Kenneth Hudnut, a geophysicist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
Reports from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Italy estimated the 8.9-magnitude quake shifted the planet on its axis by nearly 4 inches (10 centimeters).
The temblor, which struck Friday afternoon near the east coast of Japan, killed hundreds of people, caused the formation of 30-foot walls of water that swept across rice fields, engulfed entire towns, dragged houses onto highways, and tossed cars and boats like toys. Some waves reached six miles (10 kilometers) inland in Miyagi Prefecture on Japan's east coast.

Saudis: If Dollars Won't Work, Bullets Will

Remember that has been said that "IF THERE IS A PROBLEM IN SAUDI ARABIA THE OIL WILL GO $200." 

Well, as always it happens and the king is getting crazy to stop it from the beginning...
Saudi police officers opened fire on a protest march in one of its eastern provinces on 
Thursday, wounding three according to witnesses and a Saudi official, the New York Times reported. 

The crackdown came on the eve of a panned "day of rage" throughout the oil-rich kingdom that Saudi officials say they will not tolerate.
Witnesses described the small protest march in the largely Shiite town of Qatif as peaceful, but an Interior Ministry spokesman alleged demonstrators attacked police before officers took the decision to fire, Reutersreported. 

The spokesman said police fired over the protesters’ heads, but that three people were injured in the melee, including an officer.

The clashed underscored growing tensions between Saudi Arabia's Shiite minority, which is demanding greater enfranchisement from a government that officially sanctions Wahabi Islam, a zealous form of Sunni orthodoxy. Mohammad Zaki Al-Khabbaz, a human rights activist in Qatif, said that security forces fired tear gas and shot in the air trying to disperse the crowd.

Abdulwahab Al-Oraid, a Qatif resident who watched the march, said it was unclear why the police opened fire. “We think this is a message: ‘Don’t protest in any Shiite areas on Friday,'" Al-Oraid said. Witnesses could not say whether police fired rubber bullets intended for crowd control or other kinds of ammunition.

Residents across Saudi Arabia report beefed up security on the streets and closed access to major squares in big cities where protesters are expected to gather Friday. “Streets are packed with police vehicles,” said Mohamad Al-Qahtani, a human rights activist in Riyadh, the capital. “I have never seen anything like this. It says that the regime fears its people.”
