The merger of corporate and state power....

Lets start this all off with the understanding that Corporatism is NOT Capitalism, but in fact the antithesis of!

Anyone who cannot see we live in a world dominated by a Fascistic Corporatocracy is either blind, sound asleep, or complicit and not willing to admit it. When Benito Mussolini was asked in 1932, to define fascism, he stated, “Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is the merger of corporate and state power”. Look around you and tell me what you see. This my friends is reality plain and simple!

Corruption and cronyism are so blatant in our government today that it is almost looked on as the means of doing business and all who participate, from the most junior congressman to the most powerful corporate CEO benefit in a huge fashion. The only losers … We the people!

The largest banks on this planet such as Chase Manhattan or JP Morgan etc… take your money in a huge Ponzi Scheme and gamble it on ultra risky investments, and when they lose our government bails them out under the insane excuse that they are too big to fail. And who pays for these colossal bailouts trending into the trillions of tax dollars … you and I. All the while their directors earn huge bonuses relaying the message ‘we cant fail no matter how greedy and stupid we get’ and proving once again that our government today exists for the well being and welfare of the mega corporations NOT We The People.

Companies like Monsanto and Merck produce known poisons and force them on a mostly unsuspecting and trusting population to the extreme detriment of our well being. If this danger is known by independent researchers across the globe, then you know our government is aware of it and is complicit. In many cases we don’t even have legal recourse if we are harmed or our loved ones suffer up to and including death, due to government granted legal immunity or corrupt courts. There is resounding proof today that the poisons we are eating, being injected with or the pills we are being encouraged to pop more and more, are causing massive suffering, infertility and even death on a monumental scale … but it continues unabated and is in fact supported by the very government sworn to protect us.

Our national debt is crushing this country and as a result we are told We The People must tighten our belts and do without (or at a greatly reduced level) the safety net we in fact pay for. All the while the monolithic Military Industrial Complex rakes in billions in tax dollars benefiting from global skirmishes we have no business conducting. Almost $1.4 Trillion is spent yearly on the military, or related programs equaling almost half the governments budget annually. This is such a massive number it easily outstrips many of the worlds largest military machines combined! Yet through the massive lobbying of this military cabal and the self proclaimed global elite who own them, we are thrown into one conflict after another thus perpetuating and guaranteeing there political agenda as well as a steady flow of capitol into their coffers.

While you and I suffer austerity in vital social programs such as healthcare, food relief programs for the poor, Medicare and soon Social Security, hundreds of billions in foreign aid are handed out to questionable countries on a yearly basis. Most of these funds never being used to negate the poverty of those nations but instead lining the pockets of corrupt leaders and multinational corporations globally that have lobbied this government with bribes and pressure as compensation for campaign funding or more sinister endeavors.

I could go on for hours but I feel if you have not caught the gist by this point … you are wasting your time reading this. What I will present to you now is the reason and mechanism for this catastrophic mess We The People find ourselves in. As long as there is money in politics and corporate lobbies are allowed influence, We The People will always be the losers and on a monumental scale … Please watch the attached film and an epiphany is all but guaranteed. Then maybe you can answer the question “Is America Terminal?”

The Corporation

This incredibly unsettling film explores the entire history of corporations and how they’ve been allowed to virtually take over just about everything, from our values, to our educational system and even our government. This film is what launched the Kick Them All Out Project. The information in this film is an absolute must for your education. If you truly want to be informed about why the world is as it is, you must watch this film! It’s 3 hours, but I guarantee it will be worth the investment of your time.

Putin: We won't let anyone achieve military dominance over Russia

Pope Francis: a “Third Way” economic system ruled by experts and people of good will.

The recent economic statements by Pope Francis in his apostolic exhortation “Evangelii Gaudium“ (EG) read as a call for a “Third Way” economic system ruled by experts and people of good will. Pope Francis writes:

Growth in justice requires more than economic growth, while presupposing such growth: it requires decisions, programs, mechanisms and processes specifically geared to a better distribution of income, the creation of sources of employment and an integral promotion of the poor which goes beyond a simple welfare mentality.

Pope Francis does not call for the socialization of the economic system and he does not point to any totalitarian country as a model. He states that this is “not a social document” and recommends the “Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church” as a more substantial guide for study and reflection.

Pope Francis waves as he arrives for his weekly general audience in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican, Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013. Pope Francis has been selected by Time magazine as the Person of the Year. In only his first year, the Pope was selected by the magazine’s editors as the person who had the greatest impact on the world, for good or bad, during 2013. (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino)

Nevertheless, as he did not include references to point 42 of John Paul II’s seminal encyclical “Centessimus Annus,” which legitimizes a free-enterprise system based on a rule of law respect of human dignity, and as Francis’ language sometimes seems hostile to free markets, many Christian economists, and policy pundits, are alarmed. Several have questioned if the Pope has been negatively influenced by the Peronist culture of Argentina. Peronism has, as one of its pillars, an economic system that falls between socialism and capitalism. Juan Domingo Peron was an early champion of the Third Way.

In “EG,” the Pope reaffirms that the Church does not have a “monopoly on the interpretation of social realities or the proposal of solutions to contemporary problems.” Within the hierarchy of the Church, many different economists are consulted. One economist who has a strong influence on the Vatican is Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz, who some credit for dressing the Third Way economic system in academic garb.

There is no doubt, however, that Stiglitz’s writings had an impact on the second most influential Argentine at the Vatican: Monsignor Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Science.

Stiglitz was appointed to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences in 2003 and had been chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Bill Clinton. John Allen, a respected Vatican observer, wrote in 2003 that Stiglitz, “in that capacity, will help guide Vatican policy on global economic issues.” Allen also added that Stiglitz was a personal favorite of Sánchez Sorondo.

During a program sponsored by the Acton Institute, I had the privilege of sitting next to Sánchez Sorondo and he told me that Stiglitz was indeed his favorite economist. John Allen further added:

Stiglitz argues that the Clinton team made a mistake by accepting that the government should stay out of economic policy, leaving the finance sector to dictate the rules of the game. Stiglitz is thus likely to bolster what has already been the strong line of John Paul II, that public authorities must intervene in economic affairs to ensure that the benefits of globalization work for the common good.

Most of the statements on economics coming out of the Vatican that disturb free-market champions have been preceded by similar statements from noted economists. Such is the case with Francis’ apostolic exhortation.

Pope Francis delivers his Angelus blessing from the window of his private studio to thousands of pilgrims gathered in Saint Peter’s Square on December 8, 2013 in Vatican City, Vatican. Pope Francis on Friday paid tribute to Nelson Mandela expressing his hope that the late President’s example will inspire generations of South Africans to put justice and common good at the forefront of their political aspirations.

The paragraph that has garnered the most critical comments from market-oriented scholars is the one chiding the notion that economic growth will always “trickle-down” and “inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world.” It is hard to find an economist who would argue that there are no exceptions to this theory. We can easily find high rates of growth coexisting with injustice and lack of inclusiveness. China and India are good examples.

The use of the word “trickle-down,” difficult to translate and usually used to denigrate the free economy, has opened the door for many discussions. It is likely that “EG” was originally written in Spanish. The Pope used the term “derrame” (spillover). Scottish philosopher and political economist Adam Smith wrote about the “universal opulence which extends itself to the lowest ranks of the people” in a “well-governed society.” When translated, “derrame” has been used for Smith’s word “extend.” Smith never defended “the absolute autonomy of the marketplace and financial speculation.” He did not have an absolute “trust in the unseen forc­es and the invisible hand of the market” and he understood the importance of a well-governed society.

An incomplete litany of other laments and economic admonitions from the Pope include: “a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system”; accepting “the dominion of money over ourselves and our societies”; the “dictatorship of an imper­sonal economy lacking a truly human purpose”; the “widespread corruption and self-serving tax evasion”; and “the invasion of ways of thinking and acting proper to … cul­tures which are economically advanced but eth­ically debilitated.”

Since the publication of “EG,” Catholic economists have been providing answers and criticisms to each of these points. We can note that empirical studies show that economic freedom is the best antidote to corruption. Also notable is the work of free-market scholars of great prestige, such as the late Wilhelm Roepke, who created blueprints for a “Humane Economy.”

The best contribution that free-market champions can make is to become outstanding and convincing economists so that influential leaders incorporate all economic truths into their moral admonitions. A good example to follow is that of Gary Becker, the Nobel Laureate from the Chicago School, who has been a member of the Pontifical Academy of Science since 1997. Becker’s sound economic research and his respectful demeanor during meetings at the Vatican earned him that spot. The writings of Nobel Laureates from other schools of thought sympathetic to free enterprise, such as F.A. Hayek and James Buchanan from the Austrian and Public Choice schools, also deserve more attention from the Vatican.

Juan Carlos de Pablo, one of the best professors at the Pontifical Catholic University in Buenos Aires, where I studied and taught, told his classes that, “if economists do not know economics, how can you blame the bishops for their economics?” Pope Francis has acknowledged the role of the laity in many areas, not only economics.

Russia Warns America ‘We Will Respond With Nukes’

Addressing the threat posed by plans by the United States to install a missile defense system in Europe, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin today asserted that Russia would respond with nuclear weapons if it was targeted by conventional American missiles.

Rogozin’s comments arrive just a day after President Vladimir Putin called on Russia to upgrade its weapons systems in order to repel U.S. plans to institute the EPAA missile shield in Europe, which is ostensibly designed to counter Iran’s nuclear build-up yet is also firmly pointed at Russia.

Asserting that Russia was “preparing a response” to the U.S. missile defense system, Rogozin warned, “They may experiment with conventional weapons on strategic delivery platforms, but they must bear in mind, that if we are attacked, in certain circumstances we will of course respond with nuclear weapons.”

The Obama White House has refused to mothball plans for the missile defense shield despite the Bush administration initially signaling it would be scrapped. Although Washington has indicated it will abandon long range missiles, medium-range interceptors will be installed in Redzikowo, Poland by 2018.

Moscow still fears that NATO powers are using Iran as a camouflage for the true target of the missiles – Russia’s strategic nuclear forces.

Russia has itself been working on new Yars (SS-29) Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles that have the capability of penetrating U.S. missile defenses and are set to be added to Moscow’s nuclear arsenal next year.

Russia is currently engaged in the largest military build-up since the cold war, including the development of a new missile defense radar in southern and western Russia designed to counter missiles launched from Europe, as part of maneuvers which pose, “a strategic threat to the United States and NATO allies,” according to US military officials.

Earlier this summer, Russia staged its biggest military exercise since the cold war in order to ascertain the readiness of putting intercontinental ballistic missiles on “high-alert” within a short time frame.

The drill was swiftly followed by NATO’s biggest drill since the cold war, an exercise that was based around NATO’s response to a simulated invasion of Poland by a “foreign power.”

The two drills coincided with Japanese fighters being forced to intercept Russian bombers that were practicing attacks on U.S. bases in the western Pacific.

A heightening of tensions between the U.S. and Russia would dovetail with the threat of a new arms race in Asia between Japan and China in response to the crisis surrounding the disputed Senkaku Islands.

Beast Tech part number 15

Before we discuss the science behind transhumanism (a “scientific” goal that merely repackages eugenics’ drive to “create a better human”), let’s briefly look at Gen Y.
            Simply put, Gen Y children are “millennial babies,” or the grandchildren of baby boomers. Boomer children are often referred to as “Generation X,” so the “Y” babies are those born to the “X” children. Perhaps not coincidentally, X and Ychromosomes determine infant gender, a concept that has become deliberately blurred during the years since World War II. Respectively, XY and XX no longer define male or female. Transgendered individuals, or even those who simply choose to identify with a particular “sex” option, have convinced many schools, workplaces, and even politicians to protect their “choices.” A child born as an XY male may choose to “identify” as a girl—even going so far as to join girls’ basketball teams and shower in the girls’ facility. God’s design for distinct male and female roles has been corrupted into “fifty shades of gray.”
Generation Y is sometimes called “the echo boom,” as it is the largest generation since the postwar boomers. In fact, some statistics list Gen Y as numbering 80 million or more. Beyond this group is Generation Z—or those born after 1995. Today’s media culture is already targeting this generation as rising consumers, customizing advertising to reach gender-neutral, tech-hungry, post-human individuals. Perhaps even more than their parents, Gen Y youth look to genetics to take the next step in human evolution. What is that step? Consider popular culture and the memes Gen Y and Gen Z young people are exposed to every day. Graphic novels, films, television, and video games constantly and consistently teach that mankind is about to “level up.” Young men and women (and those in between) can become werewolves, vampires, super soldiers, and spider men. The old human paradigm of two genders and five senses can be replaced with an infinite number of gender choices (or none at all!) and extra senses that allow the transhuman to hear colors, smell sounds, or tune into the very fabric of space and time. The biblical promise that we will “rise up as eagles” is twisted into promising wings that permit the new human to take physical flight. Generations Y and Z could live forever. At least, that is the lie they are being told.
Cybernetics and synthetic genomes will soon merge into the sexy Cylon of Battlestar Galactica. The post-human will be beautiful, perfect in form, and capable of superhuman feats. And he/she will live forever. “Ye shall be as gods” is the oldest lie, spoken to Adam and Eve by a garden snake long ago, but it is echoing once again in the promises to a generation of lost, unhappy youths. The Antichrist will play upon this inner need for perfection, this constant yearning to become a god. The youth of Hitler’s day believed they would join their leader in the coming thousand years of Aryan rule over the Earth. Is it so far-fetched to say that coming evil one, foreshadowed by Adolf Hitler, will also promise his followers a plum part in his kingdom?
Remember this important fact: The Antichrist will claim to BE CHRIST. He will arrive as a peacemaker—as the answer to all of our worldly problems. It is also quite possible that he will claim to be an enhanced—or “trans”—human. It might be more accurate to call him a “trance” human, for the Antichrist will cast a spell upon today’s youth, luring all those who do not call the true Christ their Savior to take his special Mark. This might be a chip inserted into the body used to track each person’s location, but it may be much more. This Mark of the Beast might actually rewrite DNA.
Many of you may remember the early days of computers and computing power. Commercially available computers arose about the same time as Watson and Crick’s hallmark discovery. The US Census Bureau received the first UNIVAC computer on March 31, 1951, for a cost of nearly $1 million. In all, the government purchased forty-six UNIVAC computers, which is remarkable considering that each machine required its own small room! Back then, computing power for these monsters paled in comparison when measured against the tiny computer inside your cell phone.
In just fifty years, computer technology has advanced incredibly fast, solid-state hard drives have replaced old magnetic tape, and chips have replaced vacuum tubes. It’s very likely that the computer in your hand today is flash-based, containing no hard drive at all. Cloud computing will soon mitigate the need for “local storage,” although (for now) you can still buy laptops with more than a terabyte of storage! One of the first computers one of these authors had was an old Commodore 128 that had 128 kilobytes of RAM. The laptop I’m using this morning has 6 gigabytes of RAM.
Hard-disk storage—in the old days—consisted of ROM, or “Read-Only Memory,” which held chips or areas of storage that included operating software that must remain permanently available but rarely or never required updating. As computers advanced and “floppy disks” were added, most of these disks were “write once,” which meant data could be written to them only one time. They could not be rewritten.
At one time, scientists considered our DNA as “Read-Only Memory.” The code within each of our cells contains instructions for making the machinery that runs the complex operations that keep us alive. However, beginning in the twentieth century, early geneticists discovered a process called recombination that allows the insertion of new genetic material into a cell’s genome. Recombination makes “gene therapy” possible, using a bacterial or viral vector, or “truck,” to deliver the new genetic sequence to the target cell (perhaps in the lung or muscle). Scientists see nothing ethically wrong with “editing” our God-given genome; they merely see this as another form of self-directed evolution. Of course, one can only begin to edit what one reads first. Enter the Human Genome Project (HGP).
It is now possible to splice genes, modify DNA
It might be said that the HGP actually began on December 9, 1984, when a group of scientists gathered in the Alta, Utah, ski resort area high up in the Wasatch Mountains. There, David Smith of the Department of Energy and Mortimer Mendelsohn of Lawrence Livermore Laboratory gathered with seventeen genetics scientists to determine whether or not the time might be right to commence serious measurement of the mutations within the human genome. Joining Smith and Mendelsohn were David Botstein, Ebert Branscomb, Charles Cantor, C. Thomas Caskey, George McDonald Church, John D. Delaharty, Charles Edington, Raymond Gesteland, Leonard Leman, Michael Gough, John Mulvihill, Richard Myers, James V. Neel, Maynard Olson, Edwin Southern, Sherman Weissman, and Raymond L. White.
Of this stellar list of respected names, one stands out: George McDonald Church. Church is a self-professed transhumanist and author of the recent best seller, Regenesis: How Synthetic Biology Will Reinvent Nature and Ourselves. He’s a dedicated vegan, an entrepreneur (having established nine genomics-based businesses, including Knome,Pathogenica, and Gen9Bio—a synthetic biology company), and an avowed transhumanist who would love to see revived Neanderthal, assuming a human female volunteers to be the surrogate mother. (Oh, and by the way, Church was also instrumental in kick-starting the “race for the brain,” discussed later in this section.)
Initially, the Alta group had discussed finding a repeatable and affordable means to quantify mutations within the Hiroshima offspring. Two years later, in 1986, Mendelsohn joined several others from Alta, as well as panel chair Arno Moltulsky of the Center for Inherited Disease, to present a report called “Office of Technology Assessment, Technologies for Detecting Heritable Mutations in Human Beings.” This report had followed a meeting of leading molecular biologists in the spring of that year organized by James Watson (yes, that Watson), and held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Cold Spring, if you remember your eugenics history, was the site for the Eugenics Records Office (ERO). Are you beginning to get a nagging twitch at the back of your neck? Me, too.
By 1987, promotion of a planned genomic sequencing event kicked off with an article in the nation’s most prominent newspaper, The New York Times (NYT), titled “The Genome Project”:
IT WOULD BE THE BIGGEST, costliest, most provocative biomedical research project in history, and the United States must embark on it immediately. That was how Walter Gilbert, Nobel Prize-winning biology professor at Harvard University, heard the genome project described at scientific meetings all through 1985 and 1986. The undertaking—which would reveal the precise biochemical makeup of the entire genetic material, or genome, of a human being—would, he heard, revolutionize medicine. It would answer the Japanese challenge in biotechnology. It would grant insight into human biology previously held only by God. (emphasis added)
After fawning over several scientists who attended the Alta meeting, the NYT article continues:
Today, a new consensus is emerging. Robert Cook-Deegan, an analyst at the Office of Technology Assessment (O.T.A.), a Congressional agency, reports that of late, “N.I.H. has been talking to D.O.E. There’s more cooperation than friction.” A bill has been introduced in Congress by Senator Pete Domenici of New Mexico to create a Government consortium to map and sequence the genome. Other bills are in the offing. Few doubt that the genome project, in some form, will eventually get under way.
Nobel laureate Walter Gilbert, though you may not know it, partnered with George Church in the study of mouse and yeast genetic elements. Gilbert also cofounded the company Biogen (now Biogen Idec) in 1978. Wally Gilbert may not be an avowed transhumanist, but he does spend a lot of time with Church, so one wonders if he might not be influenced by such proximity. Church is an evangelist when it comes to transhumanist dogma; perhaps it’s discussed over a nice plate of organic sprouts.
With the NYT and other media moguls on board and a bill before Congress, it didn’t take long for the idea of a gene race to take hold. In 1989, before leaving office, President Ronald Reagan approved the plans for a US-led Genome Project and placed it in his 1988 budget. In May 1990, the official proposal went to Capitol Hill under the titleUnderstanding Our Genetic Inheritance, The U.S. Human Genome Project: The First Five Years (FY 1991–1995). Don’t let the title fool you; the plan was for a fifteen-year study of the human genome to commence in 1991.
On September 11 of that same year, President George H. W. Bush gave a speech in a rare appearance before a joint session of Congress to discuss the economy and the rising conflict in the Persian Gulf. On that auspicious occasion, Bush said this:
As you know, I’ve just returned from a very productive meeting with Soviet President [Mikhail] Gorbachev, and I am pleased that we are working together to build a new relationship. In Helsinki, our joint statement affirmed to the world our shared resolve to counter Iraq’s threat to peace. Let me quote: “We are united in the belief that Iraq’s aggression must not be tolerated. No peaceful international order is possible if larger states can devour their smaller neighbors.”
            Clearly, no longer can a dictator count on East-West confrontation to stymie concerted United Nations action against aggression.
            A new partnership of nations has begun, and we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective—a new world order—can emerge: A new era—freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony.
            A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor, and today that new world is struggling to be born. A world quite different from the one we’ve known. A world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice. A world where the strong respect the rights of the weak.
            This is the vision that I shared with President Gorbachev in Helsinki. He and the other leaders from Europe, the gulf and around the world understand that how we manage this crisis today could shape the future for generations to come. (emphasis added)
Is it a coincidence that the leader of the free world included such language in a speech that comes just as the world of science has initiated the most ambitious project of them all: to decode God’s signature within our cells? 
Genetically altered "test" humans already happening

The slow and steady progress from eugenics to genetics to a New World Order is not coincidental, dear reader. It is part and parcel of an ages-old plan to unseat the true God and replace Him with a false idol, even man himself. Transcendence and transhumanism are the fruits of the Eugenics Record Office and the pioneering efforts of men like David Jordan and even our illustrious past president Theodore Roosevelt, who wrote this in a letter to prominent eugenicist Charles Davenport in 1913:
My dear Mr. Davenport: 
            I am greatly interested in the two memoirs you have sent me. They are very instructive, and, from the standpoint of our country, very ominous. You say that these people are not themselves responsible, that it is “society” that is responsible. I agree with you if you mean, as I suppose you do, that society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind. It is really extraordinary that our people refuse to apply to human beings such elementary knowledge as every successful farmer is obliged to apply to his own stock breeding. Any group of farmers who permitted their best stock not to breed, and let all the increase come from the worst stock, would be treated as fit inmates for an asylum. Yet we fail to understand that such conduct is rational compared to the conduct of a nation which permits unlimited breeding from the worst stocks, physically and morally, while it encourages or connives at the cold selfishness or the twisted sentimentality as a result of which the men and women ought to marry, and if married have large families, remain celebates [sic] or have no children or only one or two.Some day we will realize that the prime duty—the inescapable duty—of the good citizen of the right type is to leave his or her blood behind him in the world; and that we have no business to permit the perpetuation of citizens of the wrong typeat all.
            Faithfully yours,
            Theodore Roosevelt
            [And at bottom of left corner:] Charles B. Davenport, Esq.,
            Cold Spring Harbor, L.I. (emphasis added; Theodore Roosevelt, “Society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their own kind” letter, Letters of Note, posted with image of original letter on March 25, 2011)
Anyone reading today must be shocked to discover that our famous president actually believed it to be the duty of American citizens to leave behind the “right type” of blood! Adolf Hitler came to power based on an ideology steeped in opinions such as these, by taking the ideology of American eugenicists coupled with the financial backing of many within that movement, including George H. W. Bush’s father, Prescott Bush!
According to a September 2004 article posted online in the UK paper, The Guardian, Bush’s actions caused him to be indicted under the US “Trading with the Enemy Act”:
George Bush’s grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.
            The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.
            While there is no suggestion that Prescott Bush was sympathetic to the Nazi cause, the documents reveal that the firm he worked for, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), acted as a US base for the German industrialist, Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler in the 1930s before falling out with him at the end of the decade. The Guardian has seen evidence that shows Bush was the director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation (UBC) that represented Thyssen’s US interests and he continued to work for the bank after America entered the war. (Ben Aris and Duncan Campbell, “How Bush’s Grandfather Helped Hitler’s Rise to Power,” The Guardian, September 25, 2004)
Though the Guardian had timed the publication of this article to coincide with Bush’s reelection campaign, we can thank the dark world of politics for its publication! Because of this, you and I can make the connections necessary to help us discern the times in which we live. Since the dawn of the twentieth century, a dark force has been rising within the confines of this sleeping giant of a country. Eugenics and eventually neo-eugenics and transhumanism have dictated scientific direction and set goals for politicians, all with one end in mind: To achieve the ultimate goal of the New World Order... and it's Beastly MARK. To give IT birth!

How Far Will Stocks Fall This Time When The Fed Decides To Slow Down Quantitative Easing?


When QE1 ended there was a substantial stock market correction, and when QE2 ended there was a substantial stock market correction. And if you will remember, the financial markets threw a massive hissy fit a few months ago when Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested that the Fed may soon start tapering QE3. Clearly Wall Street does not like it when their supply of monetary heroin is interrupted. 

 The Federal Reserve has tricked the American people into supporting quantitative easing by insisting that it is about "stimulating the economy", but that has turned out to be a massive hoax. In fact, I just wrote an article that contained 37 statistics that prove that things just keep getting even worse for ordinary Americans. But quantitative easing has been exceptionally good for Wall Street. During QE1, the S&P 500 rose by about 300 points. During QE2, the S&P 500 rose by about 200 points. And during QE3, the S&P 500 has risen by about 400 points. The S&P 500 is now in unprecedented territory, and stock prices have become completely and totally divorced from reality. In essence, we are in the midst of the largest financial bubble this nation has ever seen. So what is going to happen when the Fed starts pulling back the monetary crack and the bubble bursts?

A lot of people out there are claiming that the Federal Reserve will never end this round of quantitative easing. They are suggesting that the Fed may hint at tapering from time to time, but that when push comes to shove they will just keep printing more money.

There is just one big problem with that theory.

The rest of the world is watching, and they are very troubled by quantitative easing. Therefore the Fed must end it at some point because they desperately need the rest of the world to keep playing our game.

Our current economic prosperity greatly depends upon the rest of the planet using our dollars as the reserve currency of the world and lending trillions of dollars to us at ultra-low interest rates. If the rest of the world decides to stop going along with the program, the system would come crashing down very rapidly.

That is why it was so alarming when China recently announced that they are going to quit stockpiling more U.S. dollars. For a long time China has been warning us to quit recklessly printing money, and now China is starting to make moves that will make them more independent of us financially.

If the Fed does not bring quantitative easing to an end soon, other nations may start doing the same thing.

So the Fed knows that they are on borrowed time. Faith in the U.S. financial system is declining very fast.

But the Fed also knows that ending QE3 is going to be very tricky for the financial markets. The other times that the Fed has ended quantitative easing, it has turned out to be very painful for Wall Street.

So this time, the Fed seems to be trying to do what it can to use the media to mentally prepare investors ahead of time. For example, the following is what Jon Hilsenrath of the Wall Street Journal wrote just a few days ago...

Markets are positioned more to the Fed’s liking today than they were in September, when it put off reducing, or “tapering,” the monthly bond purchases. Most notably, the Fed’s message is sinking in that a wind down of the program won’t mean it’s in a hurry to raise short-term interest rates. Futures markets place a very low probability on Fed rate increases before 2015, in contrast to September, when fed funds futures markets indicated rate increases were expected by the end of 2014. The Fed has been trying to drive home the idea that “tapering is not tightening” for months and is likely to feel comforted that investors believe it as a pullback gets serious consideration.

In case you missed the subtle messages contained in that paragraph, here is a rough translation...

"Don't worry. The Federal Reserve is your friend and they say that everything is going to be okay. Investors believe what the Fed says and you should too. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Tapering is not tightening, and when the Federal Reserve does decide to taper the financial markets are going to take it very calmly."

The Fed (and their messengers) very much want to avoid a repeat of what has happened before. As you can see from the chart posted below, every round of quantitative easing has driven the S&P 500 much higher. And when each round has ended, there has been a substantial stock market correction. The following chart was originally produced by DayOnBay.org...

And of course the chart above is incomplete. As you can see below, the S&P 500 is now sitting at about 1,800...

So let's recap.

From the time that QE1 was announced to the time that it ended, the S&P 500 rose from about 900 to about 1,200.

When QE1 ended, the S&P 500 fell back below 1,100.

In a panic, the Federal Reserve first hinted at QE2 and then finally formally announced it. That round of QE drove the S&P 500 up to a bit above the 1,300 mark.

Once QE2 ended, there was another market correction. The S&P 500 fell all the way down to 1,123 at one point.

In another panic, the Federal Reserve first announced "Operation Twist" and then later added QE3. Since that time, the S&P 500 has been on an unprecedented tear. At this point, the S&P is sitting at about 1,800.

And of course those massively inflated stock prices have absolutely no relation to what is going on in the U.S. economy as a whole. In fact, the truth is that economic conditions for most of the country aresteadily getting worse. Just today we found out that for the week ending November 30th, U.S. rail traffic was down 16.3 percent from the same week one year earlier. That is a hugely negative sign. It means that the flow of goods is slowing down substantially.

So the Federal Reserve has created this massive financial bubble that is totally disconnected from reality. The only way that the Federal Reserve can keep this bubble going is to keep printing lots more money, but they also know that they cannot do that indefinitely because the rest of the world is watching.

In essence, the Federal Reserve is caught between a rock and a hard place.

When the Fed does ultimately decide to taper (whether it be December, January, February, etc.), the consequences are likely to be quite dramatic for the financial markets. The following is a brief excerpt from a recent article by Howard Kunstler...

But even in a world of seemingly no consequence, things happen. One pretty sure thing is rising interest rates, especially when, at the same time as a head-fake taper, foreigners send a torrent of US Treasury paper back to the redemption window. This paper is what other nations, especially in Asia, have been trading to hose up hard assets, including gold and real estate, around the world, and the traders of last resort — the chumps who took US T bonds for boatloads of copper ore or cocoa pods — now have nowhere else to go. China alone announced very loudly last month that US Treasury debt paper was giving them a migraine and they were done buying anymore of it. Japan is in a financial psychotic delirium scarfing up its own debt paper to infinity. Who’s left out there? Burkina Faso and the Kyrgystan Cobblers’ Union Pension Fund?

The interest rate on the US 10-year bond is close to bumping up on the ominous 3.0 percent level again. Apart from the effect on car and house loans, readers have pointed out to dim-little-me that the real action will be around the interest rate swaps. Last time this happened, in late summer, the too-big-to-fail banks wobbled from their losses on these bets, providing a glimpse into the aperture of a black hole compressive deflation where cascading chains of unmet promises blow financial systems past the event horizon of universal default and paralysis where money stops moving anywhere and people must seriously reevaluate what money actually is.

What Kunstler is talking about is something that I have written about previously many times. When QE3 slows down (or ends), that is likely going to cause the yield on 10 year U.S. Treasuries to rise substantially, and that would have a whole host of negative consequences for the U.S. economy.

Most notably, it would threaten to blow up the quadrillion dollar derivatives casino that Wall Street usually manages to keep so delicately balanced.

The truth is that we are going to have massive problems no matter what the Federal Reserve does now.

If the Federal Reserve keeps wildly printing money, our financial system will become a massive joke to the rest of the planet and other nations will stop using our dollars and will stop lending us money.

That would be absolutely disastrous.

If the Federal Reserve stops wildly printing money, the massive financial bubble that Wall Street is enjoying right now will burst and we could have a financial crisis even greater than what we experienced back in 2008.

That would also be absolutely disastrous.

So does anyone out there see an easy way out of this under the current system? If you think that you have such a plan, please feel free to share it below...

Israel & Saudi team up frustrated at US policy

Where is the promise of his coming?

And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 2 Peter 3:4

For many of us who visit this BLOG, we are all waiting for the Return of the King, Jesus. To others, His return is a BIG pie-in-the-sky myth and anyone who would cling to this “fable” is hopelessly lost in a Biblical delusion. However, the signs are all around us of His return—check out some of the links I posted, In other News!

What differentiates the Bible, or as I prefer to call it, The Guidebook to the Supernatural, is the thread of prophecy which starts in Genesis and finishes in the book of Revelation. There is no other book like it on the planet, which calls out with great specificity, future events.

Most churches avoid the teaching of prophecy, yet much of the “new testament” is exactly that, prophetic words of warning. Why is this? How do we deal with the words of Jesus when he warns us, Even the elect would be deceived if that were possible? (Mark 13:22) He’s warning us, of what is coming from a vantage point of almost 2000 years ago?

In the Old Testament, we read in Daniel 12:4: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Are we in the time period where this rings true? Are the words of Daniel, which have been “shut up until the time of the end,” becoming a reality now?

Yesterday, I boarded a plane and five hours later found myself in snow-covered Pennsylvania! Go back 150 years and this would have been thought of as pure fantasy. Knowledge increases exponentially, as seen here in this graph showing the increase of patents in the USA! Does this show us the fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy?

Added to this is the fact that temperature records are being smashed. http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2013/12/10/antarctica-cold-record/3950019/

Wars continue to rage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ongoing_armed_conflicts

The Middle East is seething. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/14132#.UqhKBqVrrwI

And UFOs are appearing in record numbers all over the world. http://www.nuforc.org

In closing todays post: I believe prophecy is coming to pass right in front of us. The world is in a very unique place as we are wired together, linked up on the Internet and satellite TV. We watch events unfold in real-time, at the speed of live. Yet, in spite of our technological advances, the world is more depraved than ever—read the story below about the men attacked by feminists.

I have painted a dismal yet what I believe is a realistic picture of where we are. So what hope is there? I can only speak for myself, but my hope is in His return. As Paul tells us in Romans 8: 22-24 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.

He is coming at some point. He will return and when He does it is the ultimate game changer. The evil which is present in the world will be destroyed by the breath of His coming. He will come with the armies of heaven and destroy The Fallen One and those gathered with him. He will set up His kingdom and He will reign for 1000 years. In the meantime we wait.

What was foretold will unfold, what was written will come to pass…

Microchips In Your Head

Last refuge of privacy to be completely eviscerated

Google engineering director Scott Huffman says that within five years people will have microphones attached to their ceilings and microchips embedded in their brains in order to perform quicker internet searches.

In an interview with the London Independent, Huffman said that Google was working towards a concept based around microphones hanging from the ceiling that would respond to verbal queries.

“Like a great personal assistant, it will interrupt you and say ‘ you’ve got to leave now’. It will bring you the information you want,” said Huffman, adding that “five years from now….Google will answer you the same way a person would answer.”

When challenged on the likelihood of such a system being vulnerable to NSA wiretapping, Huffman glibly responded that people should just trust Google (a company that allowed the NSA to mine data from its cloud network “at will”) to safeguard their information.

Huffman touted the features of such a system, suggesting people could ask Google to screen football highlights on their television via the microphones, or arrange travel plans.

“I could ask my Google ‘assistant’ where we should have lunch, that serves French food and isn’t too expensive? Google will go ‘Ok, we’ll go to that place’ and when I get in my car it should already be navigating to that restaurant. We’re really excited by the idea of multiple devices being able to talk to each other,” said Huffman.

“Google believes it can ultimately fulfil people’s data needs by sending results directly to microchips implanted into its user’s brains,” states the report, a concept which Huffman welcomes.

Although the idea of embedding a microchip inside the brain is a horror for some, there is a whole movement of people who call themselves transhumanists that will openly embrace such a scenario. Those who refuse to adopt the technology will eventually be seen as luddites and technophobes.

If Google’s transhumanist utopia is to be achieved, the microchip inside the brain must eventually become as ubiquitous as the cellphone. This will all be promoted in the name of convenience and Google will assure us that strong safeguards are in place to protect privacy (while they are work hand in hand with the NSA to desecrate privacy).

As we have previously highlighted, Google’s mission to become all pervasive to the point where it is listening to conversations in our own homes is part of the wider move towards the ‘Internet of things’ where every device is connected to the Internet and by extension becomes a de facto surveillance hub.

From so-called “smart” street lights that use microphones to record conversations, analyze voices and track people, to Xbox and cellphone devices that do likewise, our entire environment is being turned into what former CIA director David Petraeus hailed as a boon for “clandestine statecraft.”

According to whistleblowers like William Binney , the NSA is already recording our conversations, via email, phone and VOIP, and analyzing them in real time. Once our homes and our streets are festooned with microphones, the last refuge of privacy will be completely eviscerated.
