An octopus enveloping the world with its tentacles, with the words “Nothing is beyond our reach."

Following this year’s further revelations on the NSA actively spying on Americans’ communications, along with the president’s promise to “reign in” the powers of US spooks, one would have expected that the government would be engaged in a damage control campaign going forward.

However, this is the criminally insane military industrial complex usurped government we’re referring to, so Instead they’re putting world-eating Octopus logos on the side of spy satellites and tweeting about it.

Here’s a photograph of the launch of NROL-39, the latest government spy satellite being overseen by The National Reconnaissance Office, which provides signals intelligence to the NSA, among other agencies. The NRO is considered one of the “big 5″ spy agencies.

The program is classified, but ‘what the hell, let’s tweet about it’ was presumably the conclusion of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the over-arching agency that the NRO reports to.

And to really rub it in Americans’ faces about how we spy on them and the entire world, lets slap on a logo featuring an octopus enveloping the world with its tentacles, with the words “Nothing is beyond our reach.”
View image on Twitter

Really subtle. This would be akin to the DoD sticking the grim reaper on it’s unmanned drone program as a logo… oh wait it did do that.

A spokesperson for NRO issued a statement that reads:

“NROL-39 is represented by the octopus, a versatile, adaptable, and highly intelligent creature. Emblematically, enemies of the United States can be reached no matter where they choose to hide.”

“‘Nothing is beyond our reach’ defines this mission and the value it brings to our nation and the warfighters it supports, who serve valiantly all over the globe, protecting our nation.” the statement continues.

The ODNI is headed up by James Clapper, the principle advisor to President Obama on intelligence and national security, and the man who openly LIED to Congress during a March Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on the NSA’s spying programs, then later apologised for doing so.

Indeed, fresh calls were made in Congress this week to prosecute Clapper, a retired Air Force lieutenant general, for committing a federal offense.

“The only way laws are effective is if they’re enforced,” said Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act. “If it’s a criminal offense — and I believe Mr. Clapper has committed a criminal offense — then the Justice Department ought to do its job.”

So you’d think Clapper would want to be keeping a low profile right about now. But no, like some bad guy out of a James Bond movie, he’s tweeting about engulfing the world like a crazy cephalopod or a crackers kraken. He’s letting the world know that he’s about to become a maniacal mollusc, launching a giant spy telescope into space. He’s proudly announcing that he’s an insane invertebrate collecting and devouring all your metadata and tracking your exact whereabouts under a 30 year old executive order.

If you’re thinking that you’ve seen this logo somewhere before, it may be because you watched the feature-length episode of the original Batman series when The Joker, The Penguin, The Riddler, and Catwoman joined forces as the “United Underworld”. Yes, it was the logo of the most vile villains in all of Gotham city. Very fitting.

“In addition its primary payload, the rocket will also carry a dozen mini satellites funded by the National Reconnaissance Office and @NASA,” the ODNI twitter account also notes.

The only other thing known about the NROL-39 spy satellite launch is its trajectory, which places it into an orbit identical to existing spy satellites used for radar imaging. It is thought by some that the mission is therefore part of a series of launches in an effort to retrieve components from the failed spy satellite program known as Future Imagery Architecture. In 2007, The New York Times labeled the program “perhaps the most spectacular and expensive failure in the 50-year history of American spy satellite projects.”

So much for “nothing is beyond our reach” then.

GMO Contamination an “Act of God!” Seriously???

Rising to new heights of denial, in 2006, Bayer CropScience responded that the contamination of conventional rice by its experimental, unapproved GMO variety was an “act of God.”

Bayer conducted field tests of LL601 from 1999 to 2001 in Louisiana, then dropped the project without seeking government approval to market it. This year, LL601 was found to be widespread in U.S. long-grain rice, prompting Europe to cut off imports and throwing the rice futures market into turmoil.

Denying any culpability, the Bayer response variously blames the escape of its gene-altered variety of long-grain race, LL601, on “unavoidable circumstances which could not have been prevented by anyone”; “an act of God”; and farmers’ “ownnegligence, carelessness, and/or comparative fault.”


Farmers bought supposedly non-GMO seeds, and planted them. The resultant crop was found to be contaminated with the experimental variety. The contamination appears to have originated in the purchased seed. This means that the contamination issue is so widespread that no company dealing in conventional seed can claim that its seed stocks are GMO free. In fact, in the midst of the GMO Alfalfa contamination issue, Forage Genetics, supplier of the seed, and the USDA stated that up to 2% contamination should be expected and dismissed complaints out of hand. An “act of God,” evidently.Read the rest of this entry »

Be Careful, The Day of Reckoning Nears

ANALYST: ‘Stocks Look More Vulnerable Than Ever’
In a note to clients this afternoon, Eric Green, global head of rates, FX, and commodities research at TD Securities, warns that “stocks look more vulnerable than ever,” as prices have outrun improvements in fundamentals.
 Green writes:
A prevailing view among many has been that the portfolio substitution effect of QE inflated risk assets such as equities beyond reason. When the Fed began talking about tapering, however, there was no evidence that stocks were overvalued. Narrow profits as a percentage of gross value added were very much consistent with stocks priced in the 1550 range. However, since that time the S&P 500 has risen almost 11% after trading sideways between May and early September. Indeed the leg up from 1650 after the no tapering decision in September has not been supported by underlying growth and earnings fundamentals. Part of this may be attributed to a ‘low for longer’ theme that has gained more traction relative to the lead up to the September meeting.

Wall Street: The day of reckoning nears
The wolf really may be coming to Wall Street.
Although Hollywood has a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio as the “wolf,” the real one may not be the trader but rather a regulator.
Indeed, 2014 could be a very interesting year on the Street.
How interesting? Let’s have a look:
Someone BIG is getting steel braceletsIn 2013 the world of finance was rocked by high-profile cases against JPMorgan Chase and SAC Capital that highlighted a year of aggressive enforcement from regulators. But while the targeted firms paid billions in penalties and suffered public shame, there were precious few high-profile arrests.
If selling gets out of hand—and there’s reason to believe it could, considering the market’s meteoric rise during the current bull run—the tapering will become undone. Remember, the Fed promised with its last round of quantitative easing that the purchases would be “open-ended,” meaning they will be decreased or increased at the Open Markets Committee’s discretion.
In the end, Wall Street will get its way. It always does.

Jim Rogers Cautions “Be Prepared, Be Worried, And Be Careful… This Is Going To End Badly”
“Eventually, the whole world is going to collapse,” Jim Rogers chides a disquieted CBC anchor as he explains the reality that, “we in the West have staggering debts. The United States is the largest debtor nation in the history of the world,” adding that “this is going to end badly.
However, the co-founder of Soros’ Quantum fund is convinced that the commodity super-cycle is far from over, but driven by supply constraints (and cost increases) as opposed to demand from higher growth. The following interview provides more color on his commodity view as he re-iterates his bullish stance on Ag (with sugar a focus) and Natural Gas (some harsh natural realities coming), warning “don’t get too excited about fracking,” when he talks energy products.
Rogers, in his inimitable way, sums up the state iof euphoria that many markets find themselves in thus, “we are all floating around on a sea of artificial liquidity right now. This is not going to last.”

Kyle Bass Warns When “Everyone Is ‘Beggaring Thy Neighbor’… There Will Be Consequences”
There are going to be consequences to central bank balance sheet expansion all over the world,” Kyle Bass tells Steven Drobny in his new book, The New House of Money, adding “It’s a beggar-thy-neighbor policy, but everyone is beggaring thy neighbor.” The Texan remains concerned at QE’s effects on wealth inequality and worries that “at some point this is going toignite and set cost pressures off.” While Gold-in-JPY is his recommended trade for non-clients, his hugely convex trades on Japan’s eventual collapse remain as he explains the endgame for his thesis, “won’t buy back until JPY is at 350,” and fears “the logical conclusion is war.

Giant alien world discovered where it should not exist

A massive planet found orbiting a star at a staggeringly great distance is smashing some long-held theories of planetary formation, researchers say.

The planet, according to a study published online Thursday in the Astrophysical Journal Letters, is unlike anything in our own solar system.

Eleven times more massive than Jupiter, planet HD 106906 b orbits a single sun-like star at a distance of 60 billion miles - about 650 times the distance Earth is from our own sun.

"This system is especially fascinating because no model of either planet or star formation fully explains what we see," said study coauthor Vanessa Bailey, an astronomy graduate student at the University of Arizona.

Researchers estimate the planet is very young, just 13 million years old, and the residual heat from its formation can be seen from Earth as infrared energy. Researchers used infrared cameras and the Magellan telescope in the Atacama Desert in Chile to capture images of the planet.

(Up until recently, astronomers relied on orbiting spacecraft like the Hubble Space Telescope to capture clear images of exoplanets. Now, Earth-based telescopes like Magellan employ new technology to compensate for the distorting effects of Earth's atmosphere.)

Astronomers are puzzled by the planet's existence.

How To Defeat the Globalists

new paradigm
Is humanity doomed? Is there no hope to overcome the endless attacks upon humanity by the globalists? Should we just lie down and take our beating because there is nothing that we can do? Is there anything we can do?
When I appear as a guest on many radio shows, I am frequently asked how we defeat the globalists. What is the correct answer in response to the question, “How do we defeat the globalists”?

Do We Oppose the Globalists In the Physical or Spiritual Domain?

There can be little question that the globalists need to be opposed at every juncture of their unwarranted intrusions into our lives. However, if all we do is oppose our enemies at the physical gate, all we can hope to achieve is a stalemate. But if we would also employ the known spiritual weapons, which God has bestowed upon us, humanity could literally make quantum leaps in our circumstances and we would be more intimately connected to our source of creation.

Winning the Battle of Logic

There is clearly a war for the control of our minds. The globalists have successfully seduced the bulk of humanity into becoming little more than sheep who believe the lies put forth by the mainstream media. In an interview I conducted with Jim Marrs, I asked him how we could best counter the power that the globalists have over the people in our country, Jim answered “Turn the TV off”.  Sometimes, wisdom comes in simple packages and Marrs has the talent for making the complex appear to be simple.
We need to attack the globalists stronghold that they use to imprison humanity’s minds. The globalists do not maintain control over us because they control the politicians. They do not maintain control over us because they control most of the instruments of law enforcement. The globalists control us because they control our minds by propagandizing us to death on a daily basis through the mainstream media.
Any organizing principle of war states that you must neutralize the command and control structure over the enemy. This is why, whenever we invade a country, we first take out their radar and communications ability. This is one of the approaches that we need to employ in neutralizing the hold the globalists have over our minds. To do that, we only need to follow Marr’s advice and turn off the TV. Collapse the major instrument of control that our enemies employ against us, namely, the control over our minds through the mainstream media.
If CNN and FOX were to disappear, we would stop being conditioned on what to think and begin thinking for ourselves. Subsequently, the veil of deception would be removed from over our eyes. The sheep would lose their media based shepherd and the sheep would be forced to find their own way in life. The resulting paradigm could lead to a global awakening and, other than the return of Jesus, this would constitute the worst nightmare for the globalists.

Winning the Numbers War

I have immersed myself in discovering how change occurs. Why do some movements take hold and win the day, while others die on the vine? The answer, coming from the field of social psychology, is surprisingly simple.
Scientists from the prestigious Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have determined that if just 10% of any given population holds to an unshakable idea, that the idea will become adopted by the majority of the country. However, the scientists who belong to the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) found that if the ideas are shared by less than 10% of the population, the idea will not progress and will eventually die out. The research was first published in a peer reviewed E Journal in an article entitled “Social consensus through the influence of committed minorities.”
Computational and analytical methods were used to discover the tipping point where an obscure idea eventually becomes the majority opinion. The finding has dramatic implications for those of us trying to wake up the sheep in this country.
The SNARC scientists found that the 10% figure was applicable whether they were talking about the spread of innovations or to advance a political ideal.
Reaching 10% of the population should be the goal of the alternative media.

Rediscovering Our Inner Power

If the people of this planet only understood the power that lies within each one of us, our global elite oppressors would run for cover.
After researching this topic for years, I am convinced that the transhumanism experiments are, at their core, a representation of a distinct effort on the part of the demonically inspired rulers of this planet to discover and harness the true nature and power of the soul as well as to use the power for their own evil purposes. Let me be clear, I am firmly convinced that if we do not stand up and oppose our slave masters, we will indeed lose our most special resource, our soul.
What has frustrated the globalists is that the power of the mind, the body and the soul are inextricably intertwined and their efforts to morph (e.g. combining human and animal DNA) and to control the soul have met with failure. The soul, in particular is connected to our source point of origin and the globalists have failed in their experiments which attempt to isolate and control the soul.
Our point of origin which is manifested in our soul ,cannot be separated from a person and this fact represents the ultimate roadblock to total domination of our being by the global elite. The globalists can theoretically control the entire physical realm with all the food, water and weapons. However, they cannot stop the power of what lies deep inside of all human beings. Unfortunately, humanity has not claimed its God-given power.
The good news is that our spiritual powers are not just the proclamations and claims of mystics and metaphysical masters, these facts are now being quantified by science, despite the globalists best efforts to counter this power and to suppress the release of this information to the general public.
There is much more to the power of the mind than the gate keepers of the mainstream of society cares to admit. The global elite have been aware of and have tried to counter this power for all of human history. The Bible was correct when it said that people with faith can move mountains and now we have the scientific proof.
Make no mistake about it, the globalist controlled media holds the power of prayer, the power of intention and the power of the presence of what we label as miracles, in total contempt. There are significant reasons why I believe we will see a great purge against all genuine expressions of spirituality in the very near future. In fact this purge has already begun and it explains why the American Stasi, the Department of Homeland Security, has declared Bible-believing Christians to be domestic terror threats. After reading this article, you will discover when America descends into the tyranny of martial law, Christians will be the first large group to be purged. We will be persecuted and exterminated because our faith teaches how best to combat the power of the satanically inspired globalists. 
It turns out that I had to leave some of my formal education behind in order to embrace a higher reality than the one I was trained in. In Rupert Sheldrake’s (Seven Experiments That Could Change the World: A Do It Yourself Guide to Revolutionary Science, 1995), he demonstrated that people can predict when they are being stared at from behind. This fact has very strong survival implications and this made a great deal of sense to me since much of our behavior is based upon survival. This discovery opened my mind ever so slightly as to the power that we all possess.
On the heels of the Rupert experiments, I discovered that committing random acts of kindness is very good for our health and our sense of well-being and this principle was actually being quantified in traditional research in a manner that actually operationalized the concept of “Pay it forward.”
Sonja Lyubomirsky in her book, The How of Happinessspoke about the benefit of being kind. Performing an act of kindness releases serotonin in your brain.  Serotonin is a neurotransmitter (i.e. brain messenger) which has demonstrable health benefits, including the ability to make us feel more happy. Not only does the originator of the act of kindness get a bump in their Serotonin levels, but so does the recipient of the act of kindness. Even people watching the random act of kindness feel good as a result of watching kindness in action. Do you understand what this means? We are hard-wired to be kind. Evil is destructive and love is life-preserving. Subsequently, our brains and their reactions to events are entangled.

The Mechanics of Global Consciousness

Performing the same research, over and over, under the same conditions and achieving the same results is the hallmark of good research (i.e. replicability). Through the Princeton EGGS experiment we now have solid, replicable empirical evidence that humans interact directly with each other and the world in the domain of consciousness, despite physical barriers and geographic separation.
As an aside, one night I was driving cross country and was listening to the classic Art Bell show. He was bemoaning the fact that an area of the country was experiencing devastating drought conditions. He did something that I had never seen before. Art performed a human consciousness experiment in which he asked the estimated 6-9 million listeners to his show to concentrate on bringing rain to a drought-stricken region. This experiment, performed on air lasted for about 3-4 minutes. It was not very good radio because there was a lot of dead air. However, I thought the concept was interesting, and so much so, I followed up on the results and discovered that the torrential rains visited the area when no rain was called for in the forecast. Flooding resulted and when I tuned back into Art’s show, I discovered he was freaked out and swore to never to perform the experiment again.
I took this anecdotal experience from Art Bell’s on air experiment and began to read about the phenomenon. I discovered that repeated experiments demonstrate an effect on experimenter instruments through the individual and combined group intentions in an experiment called the Princeton EGGs in which they subsequently named this power as group consciousness.
Can you imagine if we, the “useless eaters”, could be taught to pray for the same things? We could literally force the globalists off the planet. They know this and this is why they suppress the knowledge.

The Awesome Power of Prayer

The term “distant healing” has actually made its way into the lexicon of the National Institute of Health (NIH). Many medical facilities, including hospitals, refer to this phenomenon by various terms including prayer, spiritual healing and non-local healing. Just within the past few years, two major peer-reviewed journals have published studies on healing at a distance. The Annals of Internal Medicine published a review of 28 double-blind distant healing studies from reputable journals which came to the stunning conclusion that there is enough evidence to support a measurable effect of prayer at a distance and that more research was warranted and needed. Additionally, The Archives of Internal Medicine published a study, which reviewed the health data of 990 cardiac patients who were prayed for in a double-blind study. In this study, the people did not know that they were either being prayed for, or were not being prayed for. Further, in keeping with the tenets of double-blind studies, the people doing the praying did not know the individuals they were praying for. The praying people merely had a list of first names and last initials representing the people that were being prayed for. The survival rate of the group prayed for was significantly and measurably higher than the control group, in which nobody was prayed for.
Does experience with praying make a difference in the outcome? It is interesting to note that many of the people in the formal studies used experienced “healers”, while many studies have demonstrated that novices are just as effective. However, there is empirical evidence which suggests that these skills can be taught. Various schools and disciplines (e.g. Reiki, Therapeutic Touch) have collectively produced nearly a half of a million of trained “prayer” practitioners on the skills related to intercessory prayer.
Stunningly, the National Institute of Health is calling for more research to address the question of how to integrate healing at a distance prayers into the practices of mainstream medicine. Dr. Larry Scherwitz, who was the co-director of research at the Preventive Medicine Research Institute in Sausalito, California, has designed guided imagery techniques, not unlike the ones used by athletes, to this end. The goal of these practices is to teach cardiac patients the ability to control blood flow in order to minimize dangerous complications which can occur during surgery. What separates Scherwitz’s approach from the “mainstream” is that he also teaches the techniques to the family members of the patient. Prior to the surgery, the family takes a walk in order to collectivize and unify their intentions. Then, while the patient is asleep on the operating table, the family works with the therapist practicing the guided imagery in which they visualize minimal bleeding, a steady heart rate and a steady hand on the part of the surgeon. They end the session with what is called end-result imagery in which the patient awakens easily, experiencing comfort and is in an alert state. These practices, according to Scherwitz, are adaptable to all types of surgery.
The NIH has issued a grant to study healing at a distance.
Can you imagine how the world would change if we collectively prayed for peace, justice and “thy will be done”?

Changing the Way that We Look At Things

Another important effect to consider is the Hawthorne effect. The Hawthorne effect comes from the discipline of field research and it teaches us about the observer effect. It is a well-established principle that when research subjects know they are being observed, their behavior changes. The field of quantum mechanics teaches us the same exact principle. The lesson to be drawn here is that we, as individuals and as a collective whole of humanity, can change the way we look at things and then the things we look at will change. What I am saying here is that when we realize that we are gifted by our creator with undeniable talents and subsequently employ these talents to positively impact our environment, our collective faith can move mountains. The implications for the spiritual war that we are currently engaged in, should be apparent. Whenever, two or more like-minded people are gathered in His name, there is no limit to the power that we have at our disposal.

Putting the Principles to Work

The first thing that every American should do is to turn off your television and free your mind to be able to accept the realities of the times we live in.
Become a disciple for the truth. Seek the truth and spread the truth. There is plenty of room for millions more to join the alternative media with message of hope and power.
Do not shop at Walmart, Kmart or any of the other “slave-marts”. Do not feed the evil corporate beast that is poisoning our planet. Put your gun away and keep your pitchfork in the closet, simply let the evil die on the vine by ignoring it.
Commit daily acts of kindness. Love is the death of hate. Kindness erases persecution. Pay it forward and enjoy your serotonin high in the process.
Realize that the world does not a need a Ghandi, a Martin Luther King nor a Mother Teresa, the world needs millions of Ghandi’s, Martin Luther King’s and Mother Teresa’s. We are all God’s reformers. This fact alone could crush anything the globalists could mount against us. “Not in our house, not on our planet”, should become our refrain.
Find your niche, your God-given talents and subsequently give these gifts back to the world in the spirit of love. We are all soldiers engaged in the fight against evil.
Finally, pray and pray often, as this is our ultimate weapon. The power of collective prayer knows no limitations, it is waiting there for us to claim this power.

Japan Has Fallen Back Into Fascism After 68 Years

The Empire of Japan surrendered on September 2, 1945.

Image: Japanese Flag (Wikimedia Commons).

68 years later, Japan has fallen back into fascism.

Despite large protests outside of the Japanese Senate.

Xinua reports:

Meanwhile, protests comprising more than 7,000 demonstrators continued around the Diet building, mobilized by civic groups, unions and concerned individuals, following similar scenes Wednesday that saw more than 6,000 anti-secrecy law opponents march around the Diet building hand-in-hand.

And the impassioned pleas of Japanese Senators (via Xinhua):

So outraged was opposition lawmaker Hirokazu Shiba in the committee meeting Thursday, that he rose from his seat and shouted “This is the way the reign of terror begins!” His fervor led to his fellow lawmakers having to physically restrain Shiba, as tensions in the meeting reached fever pitch.

The secrecy bill is headed for passage Friday. Indeed, the bill has likely already passed by the time you read this.

Another Japanese Senator said:

“The path that Japan is taking is the recreation of a fascist state. I strongly believe that this secrecy bill represents a planned coup d’├ętat by a group of politicians and bureaucrats,” he warned.

Just like the U.S. Japan is responding to crises of its own making by banning journalism.

The Guardian notes:

Whistleblowers and journalists in Japan could soon find themselves facing long spells in prison for divulging and reporting state secrets, possibly including sensitive information about the Fukushima nuclear disaster ….

“It is a threat to democracy,” said Keiichi Kiriyama, an editorial writer for the Tokyo Shimbun newspaper ….

“It can be used to hide whatever the government wishes to keep away from public scrutiny,” said Mizuho Fukushima, an opposition MP. ….

[The] justice minister, Sadakazu Tanigaki, refused to rule out police raids of newspapers suspected of breaking the law.

Indeed, the number 2 government official said last week that protest equals terrorism.

Foreign Policy notes that the U.S. is largely behind the bill:

Washington, for its part, has long supported stronger secrecy laws in Japan ….

The proposed measure is part of a larger effort by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to move away from Japan’s pacifist past and establish a stronger military posture that is congenial to, or in line with U.S. preferences, according to Samuels. Among other initiatives, Abe plans to create Japan’s version of the U.S. National Security Council, the coordinating body of American foreign policy, and is pushing to reinterpret Japan’s constitution to expand its military’s limited self-defense role — giving it the authority to aid the United States and other allies, if they’re attacked.

The state secrets bill similarly seems to resemble U.S. policy.

Indeed, the U.S. controls a good deal of Japanese policy.

Why Prepping For A January Collapse Is The Smart Move

Imagine that it is late August, and the storm clouds have been hanging around for days.

The wind has been blowing, giving you the indication – this storm is going to be a Category 5 hurricane. Truly one for the record books.

Are you prepared?

And then the rain drops begin.

As most people in hurricane country will tell you, you prepare for bad weather months in advance. Weeks if you must, but you need to take action as soon as possible.

But bad weather is a disaster that is “in your face”. You can’t escape it.

However, the disaster that is looming of all of America is subtle one. And will have far-reaching consequences for those that don’t prepare. Renown technical analyst Tom DeMark has discovered that the market activity prior to the 1929 Stock Market crash is incredibly similar to the Stock Market of today.

His calculations suggest that the market will crash on or around 14 January 2014. And this is one storm you can’t fully prepare for, but you can take some action.

His calculations are not the only ones out there.

Stan Harley, a former Navy pilot and author of the Harley Market Letter, figures that January 10th will mark the top of the market, before it plunges into darkness.

Ed Carlson, the current living expert on the works of the late George Lindsay, has calculated the first half of January is the likely drop date.

For years, the signs have been there like rain drops hitting a tin roof. The Baltic Dry Index (BDI) has been abysmally low. Unemployment and inflation numbers have been massaged and reworked to tell the American taxpayers lie after lie. Stock prices have been grossly inflated without any form of justification, and companies have been buying their own stock in order to prop up share prices.

But the media and stock traders have provided only soft breezes of easy money and good times ahead.

All they’ve done is made this storm possibly the worst one in American history. On a tornado scale, this promises to be an 8 out of 5, an 11 out of a 10 scale.

Financially – it will be hell on earth.

There are only a few possibilities how this will play out.

Nothing will happen
A collapse greater than the 1929 collapse
Somewhere in the middleAssuming the worst, as is the best option for prepping for disaster – the threats that the American people face are daunting, but livable. After all, our grandparents and parents lived through it. But it was a kinder generation – one that had God taught in the schools and human decency was the rule, not the exception.

What is the worst-case scenario?

Civil unrest and riots (remember when the SNAP cards went offline?)
Martial Law to quell the riots
FEMA camps for the homeless (don’t laugh – there is precedence).While it’s great to theorize the absolute worst, the worst is not necessarily possible, but it is plausible. After the 1987 crash, “circuit breakers” were placed on the Dow Jones trading activity to prevent another 1929/1987 crash. These breakers force all trading to be suspended along the following parameters:

A 10% drop before 2:00 pm EST would cause the market to stop for one hour. Between 2:00 to 2:30 pm and the trading would stop for 30 minutes. Between 2:30 and 4:00, no trading will stop.

A 20% drop before 1:00 pm EST and the market would be closed for 2 hours. If it happens between 1:00 to 2:00 pm, the trading stops for 1 hour. All trading would stop for the day if it happens after 2:00 pm
A 30% drop, which would put the DJIA at just above 11,000 from 15,800, would shut the market for the day, regardless of the time.As a general rule, anytime you see a boat taking on water – it’s generally a great idea to avoid getting on, or at best, make a bee line off the boat. And that’s what investors will do – abandon the ship to cut their losses and come back another day to invest.

The problem that most people aren’t prepared for is a long and protracted collapse of the stock market. In the crashes before the breakers, the markets took a short and severe strike, severing prime values in a matter of hours. However, the breakers will provide many the opportunity to liquidate their portfolios and the crash may take days to complete, and not hours.

In short, if it starts on a Monday, the Dow could hit about 2,500 in as little as 5 days. And that’s with all the brakes applied.

A word of advice to the Prepping Community: When you hear that the circuit breakers have been applied for the day – get your money out of the bank, except for those bills you need to pay within the next day or so. Having cash on hand will help prevent being caught in a bank run or being out of cash on a bank holiday. You can always deposit the money if the market does a correction.

Whatever you do, plan now so you are acting with common sense and purpose. Everyone else will be reacting like a cornered animal.

And that’s what makes us Preppers.

Scientists predict a century of global cooling

Better start investing in some warm clothes because German scientists are predicting that the Earth will cool over the next century.

German scientists found that two naturally occurring cycles will combine to lower global temperatures during the 21st century, eventually dropping to levels corresponding with the “little ice age” of 1870.

“Due to the de Vries cycle, the global temperature will drop until 2100 to a value corresponding to the ‘little ice age’ of 1870,” write German scientists Horst-Joachim Luedecke and Carl-Otto Weiss of the European Institute for Climate and Energy.

Researchers used historical temperature data and data from cave stalagmites to show a 200-year solar cycle, called the de Vries cycle.

They also factored into their work a well-established 65-year Atlantic and Pacific Ocean oscillation cycle. Global warming that has occurred since 1870 can be attributed almost entirely to both these factors, the scientists argue.

According to the scientists, the oft-cited “stagnation” in rising global temperatures over the last 15 years is due to the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean oscillation cycle, which lasts about 65 years. Ocean oscillation is past its “maximum,” leading to small decreases in global temperature.

The de Vries solar cycle is currently at its “maximum,” explaining why temperatures have risen since 1870, but leveled off after 1998. However, this means that as solar activity starts to decrease, global temperatures will follow.

“Through [the de Vries solar cycle's] influence the temperature will decrease until 2100 to a value like the one of the last ‘Little Ice Age’ 1870,” the scientists wrote.

Most scientists argue that human activity — mainly burning fossil fuels — is driving global temperatures higher as more greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere. In response, governments from countries around the world have agreed to limit temperature rises to two degrees Celsius by 2100. Most of this effort focuses on cutting each nation’s reliance on fossil fuels.

Scientists, however, have been increasingly turning against the global warming consensus and arguing that the world is actually in line for a colder century.

Professor Mike Lockwood of Reading University argues that the world is set for global cooling due to rapidly falling solar activity.

“By looking back at certain isotopes in ice cores, [Professor Lockwood] has been able to determine how active the sun has been over thousands of years,” the BBC reports. “Following analysis of the data, Professor Lockwood believes solar activity is now falling more rapidly than at any time in the last 10,000 years.”

As Fast Food Workers Go On Strike In 100 Cities, Applebees Unveils The "Waiter Terminator"

More unemployment to the table 4

Today, in the latest escalation by minimum paid restaurant workers who demand greater wages, Fast-food workers and labor organizers are set to turn out in support of higher wages in cities across the country Thursday and walkouts are planned in 100 cities, with rallies set for another 100 cities. While it's not clear what the actual turnout will be, how many of the participants are workers and what impact they'll have on restaurant operations, it is possible that your 99 cent lunch may be delayed or outright cancelled today.

The actions would mark the largest showing yet over the past year. At a time when there's growing national and international attention on economic disparities, labor unions, worker advocacy groups and Democrats are hoping to build public support to raise the federal minimum wage of $7.25, or about $15,000 a year for full-time work.

In New York City, about 100 protesters carrying signs, blowing whistles and beating drums marched into a McDonald's at around 6:30 a.m.; one startled customer grabbed his food and fled as they flooded the restaurant, while another didn't look up from eating and reading amid their chants of "We can't survive on $7.25!"
It seems trying to persuade these minimum wage workers to enjoy what they have - namley that corporations have all the leverage while unskilled, undereducated employees have none (the Service Employees International Union represents more than 2 million workers, on the other hand there are 91 million non-unionized workers out of the workforce) and that any increases in wages would simply be passed on to other consumers, and certainly result in broad terminations to keep the SG&A line flat - is probably a moot point.
So instead the strikers were met with something a bit more persuasive: brute Police force.
Community leaders took turns giving speeches for about 15 minutes until the police arrived and ordered protesters out of the store. The crowd continued to demonstrate outside for about 45 more minutes while a handful of customers remained inside. A McDonald's manager declined to be interviewed and asked that customers not be bothered.

Tyeisha Batts, a 27-year-old employee at Burger King, was among those taking part in the demonstrations planned throughout the day in New York City. She said she has been working at the location for about seven months and earns $7.25 an hour.

"My boss took me off the schedule because she knows I'm participating," Batts said.
Considering there are a few hundred thousand applicants for your position , Ms. Batts, we find that perfectly explainable. Then again, if you are unhappy with your position, you are welcome to quit and find a better paying job. Especially since in the very near future you may not even have the option of choosing, as it will be done for you. Earlier this week, restaurant chain Applebees unveiled what may soon be the "Waiter Terminator."
From the company's press release: "Applebee’s steps into the future to redefine and enhance the guest experience through the installation of 100,000 E la Carte Presto tablets, powered by Intel, on every table and multiple bar positions at more than 1,800 Applebee’s restaurants in the United States by the end of next year."
The E La Carte Presto tablets – powered by Intel – will allow patrons to pay from their seats while also adding food and beverages to their existing orders. A pilot program helped customers save time, according to Applebee’s Glendale-based parent DineEquity.

Let’s face it, everyone who has ever been to a restaurant has been frustrated by waiting for their check,” said Mike Archer, Applebee’s president, in a statement.

Eventually, the gadgets will also feature an expanded lineup of games, video streaming capabilities, music options, gift card sales and social media interaction. The Presto tablets, which were developed at MIT, have been “ruggedized” to deal with the spills and rowdy children common in such restaurants, according to the company.
In the pilot program, the Presto tablets not only significantly reduced transaction times for guests, but also provided them a better overall experience, based on their feedback. By simplifying the transaction process and allowing guests to control the timing, Team Members were able to provide better service and more attention to guest needs throughout the dining experience, rather than focusing on delivering a check.
Also, much more time to work on their resume. In other words, Applebees is already taking steps at outsourcing its minimum wage waiters with tablets. Which incidentally is a brilliant idea, especially in a cost-cutting environment. So brilliant in fact that others are already joining in..
DineEquity said it might consider introducing the tablets at its IHOP restaurant chain as well. The company joins many others in the industry that have begun incorporating technology into the customer experience, installing ordering kiosks, equipping servers with mobile devices and more.
In other words, a funny thing happened as fast food workers were striking across the land - they were all just made obsolete courtesy of iPads.

China calm in face of US overflight

China stressed on Wednesday its ability to "effectively manage and control" its newly declared air defense identification zone, a day after it calmly handled an unannounced US entry into the zone.

On Tuesday, China monitored two US B-52 bombers that entered the zone without informing Beijing, the Defense Ministry said.

The Foreign Ministry said on Wednesday that other air defense identification zones will be set up "at the right time when preparations are ready".

Responding to the US flights, Defense Ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng said: "The Chinese military monitored the entire process, carried out identification in a timely manner and ascertained the type of US aircraft.

"China is capable of exercising effective control over this airspace."

The US aircraft flew south and north along the eastern border of the East China Sea Air Defense Identification Zone from 11 am to 1:22 pm on Tuesday, about 200 km to the east of the Diaoyu Islands, Geng said.

The B-52s took off from their home base in Guam in what US defense officials say was a routine exercise.

Experts said Japan and the US have been overreacting to, and imposing double standards over, China's zone.

Zhang Junshe, a military expert, said the main purpose of setting up the zone is to identify aircraft entering the area.

"Tuesday's case showed that we have finished the task and cut the time to launch an early warning."

Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said on Wednesday that China will respond according to the degree of threat posed by aircraft entering the zone without informing it.
