Caterpillar's Data Is Right, This Is A Global Industrial Depression

Most cats bounce at least once when they die, but not this one: after CAT posted its first annual drop in retail sales in December of 2012, it has failed to see a rise in retail sales even once.
In fact, since then Caterpillar has seen 34 consecutive months of declining global sales, and 11 consecutive months of double digit declines!
Why is this important? Because a month ago we asked: "What On Earth Is Going On With Caterpillar Sales?"
We have been covering the ongoing collapse in global manufacturing as tracked by Caterpillar retail sales for so long that there is nothing much to add.

Below we show the latest monthly data from CAT which is once again in negative territory across the board, but more importantly, the global headline retail drop (down another 11% in August) has been contracting for 33 consecutive months! This is not a recession; in fact the nearly 3 year constant contraction - the longest negative stretch in company history - is beyond what most economists would deem a depression. 
We got the answer just three days later when the industrial bellwether confirmed the world is now in an industrial recession, when it not only slashed its earnings outlook, but announced it would fire a record 10,000.
Moments ago, CAT reported its latest monthly retail sales and they were even worse than last month: in the month of September there was not a single region that posted either a increase of an unchanged print. This was the first month in all of 2015 in which every region posted a drop.

Putting CAT's result in context, the Great Financial Crisis resulted in 19 consecutive months of sales declines. We are currently at 34 months and showing no signs of any pick up.

As such, based on CAT's ongoing shockingly bad retail sales we wonder if it is no longer merely a global recession: perhaps that time has come to call it what it really is - a global industrial (at first) depression, which has so far been hidden from plain view thanks to $13 trillion in central bank liquidity, whose marginal impact is evaporating by the day and a Chinese credit machine which recently hit a brick wall.

DARPA creates search engine to expose the dark web to government surveillance

Image result for memex

(NaturalNews) The Defense Department's most secretive research division has created a new computer program giving America's spies a powerful tool to search the so-called "dark web," where some of the most sophisticated terrorist organizations operate.

DARPA - the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency - recently introduced Memex, which, according to the BBC, is "intended to search the Web in new and different ways."

Specifically, Memex is search engine software that is capable of spotting relationships and patterns in data.

According to a DARPA press release, the new software differs substantially from existing search engine software:

Today's web searches use a centralized, one-size-fits-all approach that searches the Internet with the same set of tools for all queries. While that model has been wildly successful commercially, it does not work well for many government use cases. For example, it still remains a largely manual process that does not save sessions, requires nearly exact input with one-at-a-time entry, and doesn't organize or aggregate results beyond a list of links. Moreover, common search practices miss information in the deep web - the parts of the web not indexed by standard commercial search engines - and ignore shared content across pages.

Memex will find what search engines currently cannot find

Memex overcomes those existing limitations with next-generation programming technology that will "revolutionize the discovery, organization and presentation" of all Web search results.

In addition, the program seeks to produce search results that are much more useful more quickly, as regards to specific domains and tasks. Programmers hope that Memex will "improve the ability" of government, military and even commercial institutions to locate and organize publicly available information on the Internet that is crucial to their mission, the press release said.

"We're envisioning a new paradigm for search that would tailor indexed content, search results and interface tools to individual users and specific subject areas, and not the other way around," said Chris White, DARPA program manager. "By inventing better methods for interacting with and sharing information, we want to improve search for everybody and individualize access to information. Ease of use for non-programmers is essential."

Eventually, DARPA says that Memex will apply to any public domain content, but initially the agency plans to use it primarily as a key Defense Department tool in fighting human trafficking.

"Human trafficking is a factor in many types of military, law enforcement and intelligence investigations and has a significant web presence to attract customers," says the press release. "The use of forums, chats, advertisements, job postings, hidden services, etc., continues to enable a growing industry of modern slavery. An index curated for the counter-trafficking domain, along with configurable interfaces for search and analysis, would enable new opportunities to uncover and defeat trafficking enterprises."

Memex, circa 1945

The "deep web" - which is also called the Deepnet, the Invisible Web and the Hidden Web, is a portion of the Internet that is not indexed by standard search engines. Some have said searching the Web today using standard search engines is like dragging a net across the surface of the ocean; you will snag a great deal, but there is much more deep below that is subsequently missed. It is in these deep recesses of the Web that criminal and terrorist enterprises often operate.

Memex is a tool to give the government's military and civilian spy agencies the power to identify such activity. In particular, the software will accomplish that by using three technical areas of interest: Domain-specific indexing; domain-specific search; and DoD-specified applications, DARPA said.

"The program plans to use commodity hardware and emphasize creating and leveraging open source technology and architecture," the agency said, in the release.

The program itself derives its name and inspiration from a hypothetical device that was described in a 1945 article for The Atlantic Monthly, by Vannevar Bush, then-director of the U.S. Office of Scientific Research and Development. The article, "As We May Think," describe Memex as a combination of "memory" and "index," capable of storing and automatically cross-referencing all of a user's books, records and other data.

Revelations of a Naval Intelligence Officer About Nazi Scientists

operation paperclip
I was fluent in German when I was a toddler. Well, I was as fluent as a toddler could be. I learned German from my German grandmother and father who often spoke to me in German, the land of their birth and upbringing. Sometime later, when I was five years old, I received a lot of practice speaking German to strangers, because they were crawling through my home in Littleton, Colorado, on a regular basis.
From 1983 to 1985, I visited almost every night when I learned that my father was dying from asbestos poisoning. He explained many bizarre things that I had seen and heard as child. Over the next two parts of this series, I will share the content of the highly classified material that my father shared with me during that time on the topic of Operation Paper Clip, UFO’s, the secret space program and the existence of Extraterrestrials  (ET’s).

A Strange Childhood

I had a childhood that was different from many children and my beautiful mother had a marriage that was unique and at times was filled with loneliness.
Before I was born, my father oversaw the rewiring of the Combat Information Center (CIC) on the carrier Franklin D. Roosevelt. The FDR was the first ship in the U.S. Navy to be retrofitted for the installation of nuclear weapons. At the time of the installation, this was the most secure military mission in the history of the United States.
With regard to the mission, the crew and ship was stationed at the naval base in Jacksonville, FL. The installation of the nuclear weapons on the FDR was accomplished at sea. The nukes were operationalized on a mission which extended around the southern tip of South America. My father said this was done to try and limit the amount of “eyes on” surveillance the Soviets would have of the process. This mission was performed at a time before the use of satellites.
During the course of the mission, my father said that for three nights the small task force was followed by “glowing orbs” to the rear of the ship.  This will be an important variable as this story plays out in Part Two.
The mission, itself, from start to finish, took 18 months. During that time, my father and mother saw each other for exactly 10 days.
During the course of my childhood, my family was under constant surveillance. Our phones were tapped and our mail was read. We had visits from either the Secret Service or the FBI every six months. The routine was always the same. One agent would generally question the family while another agent isolated one of the family members, at a time, for interrogation. The questions that we were asked were always the same. Do you know what you father does for a living? Who have you told about what you have seen and heard? The interrogations were always accompanied by the use of a polygraph. For a long time, as a child, I thought that this was what every family went through as this became normal to me. These interrogations continued like clockwork until my junior year while attending the University of Denver as an undergraduate student. The FBI showed up, unannounced, at my dorm wearing suits and ties. I was embarrassed and incensed and I started yelling at them until they left. I never heard from them again. Although my father received a scolding with regard to my uncooperative attitude.

The Chronology of My Father’s Work

Following my father’s mission with the FDR, he was early retired by the Navy at 19 years and 6 months with full pension instead of the requisite 20 years required to receive a pension. In other words, the government could not wait to get my father to work on his new project.
My father was allowed to come home to the family and visit for a week, in Iowa, following his formal retirement, and then he left for Denver, Colorado. He purchased a home and began to work at Lowry Air Base in Denver. His work was disguised. His entire unit posed as civilian engineers with the 547th. It was there, that he encountered German scientists who had worked in the Third Reich. Occasionally, my father would bring one or two of them home and they would work on what appeared to be blueprints. During these visits, I would get to speak to the men, often in German, and then my mother would take the kids to the park or the movies. Security personnel, in plain clothes, would accompany the party to our home. Later, the project was moved from Lowry Air Force Base to Martin Marietta located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains 15 miles due west of our home.
So, what did my father work on during this time? His work centered upon vertical take-off craft. I do not mean the harrier jet, I mean like what you see in the movies. My father worked on anti-gravity technology that would enable a craft to achieve escape velocity from the earth’s atmosphere. Because my father’s role kept expanding, he was able to see the project beyond the compartmentalized view that was imposed to prevent any one person from learning to much.
After my father’s work was concluded with the Nazi scientists, he went to work at Sunstrand Electric in Westminster, Colorado. There he worked on advanced satellite technology that would be used to track outbound and inbound space vehicles. My father’s expertise did not extend into this area, but his service was invaluable because he knew how to organize study groups, action groups and help the process grow to final implementation. In short, he took on the role of a non-technical project manager.

Bill Pawelec and my former News Director, Annie Deriso
It was at Sunstrand Electric that my dad worked with electronic surveillance expert, Bill Pawelec. Bill would later be married to Annie DeRiso, my former director of news at The Common Sense Show. On the “About” page of my website, you can view Bill’s revelation, made to Steven Greer at the White House Press Corps, regarding the existence of extraterrestrials beings. Bill granted the interview before he died of cancer.
Bill Pawelec actually briefly knew me as a child as he visited my home. However, I do not remember Bill’s two visits. I reunited with Bill in 1993 after I was listening to Art Bell interviewing Vance Davis, formerly of the NSA. Vance’s revelations on Art’s Coast to Coast show were of a nature that I knew that he knew what my father had learned over a 30 year period. I reached out to Vance and was eventually contacted by Bill Pawelec who was also doing contract work for the CIA.

Nightly Revelations

In 1983, when my father received word that his developing lung condition was terminal, I began to visit him on a nightly basis. We talked about everything including the work he did for the government following his retirement from the Navy.
Our conversations took a bizarre twist when I asked my father two questions:
  1. Who killed JFK and why.
  2. What was the truth behind UFO sightings?
I was never obsessed with the UFO question, but was fascinated by the Betty and Barney Hill accounts that I had read about as a child.
During the course of our conversations, I learned that every one of the Nazi scientists my father worked with believed that the technology that they were in possession of, had extraterrestrial origins.
In Part Two of this series, I will further develop the role that Vance Davis and Bill Pawelec played in the revelations that I would come to be a part of with regard to the extraterrestrial question and what it means for humanity.
I understand that these revelations will come as a shock to my listening audience as well as my readers. Except for the false flag plan, Operation Blue Beam, I have never written or discussed the subject of ET’s, until now.
What I will reveal will be the culmination of over 30 years of information gathering.
If any of you are wondering why I would wait until now to reveal what I learned about this topic, as a result of the work of my father, Bill Pawelec and Vance Davis, let me save you the time it will take you to construct an email. My mother was the beneficiary of my father’s pensions. Both pensions carried a strong stipulation as to my father’s national security oath. If he had been caught revealing state secrets, he would have been sentenced to life in prison at Leavenworth, sentenced to hard labor, no due process and would have forfeited all financial assets. After my father’s death, the only assets left on the table were my father’s two pensions. If I had spoken publicly about this prior to 2011, the year of my mother’s death, she would have forfeited the rights to his pensions.
The only person that I spoke with outside of Bill Pawelec and Vance Davis was Ken Anderson (former astronaut) and Jim Marrs in a meeting that was arranged by Bill Pawelec in 2005 at the Phoenix airport. This was a meeting in which Jim Marrs and I exchanged information on the topic of Operation Paper Clip that was reverse engineering of the scientific breakthroughs obtained by Nazi scientists.
In Part Two, I will reveal the content of what I have learned and what it means to humanity.

Goodbye Middle Class: 51 Percent Of All American Workers Make Less Than 30,000 Dollars A Year

Image result for american middle class

We just got more evidence that the middle class in America is dying.  According to brand new numbers that were just released by the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of all workers in the United States make less than $30,000 a year.  Let that number sink in for a moment.  You can’t support a middle class family in America today on just $2,500 a month – especially after taxes are taken out.  And yet more than half of all workers in this country make less than that each month.  In order to have a thriving middle class, you have got to have an economy that produces lots of middle class jobs, and that simply is not happening in America today.
You can find the report that the Social Security Administration just released right here.  The following are some of the numbers that really stood out for me…
-38 percent of all American workers made less than $20,000 last year.
-51 percent of all American workers made less than $30,000 last year.
-62 percent of all American workers made less than $40,000 last year.
-71 percent of all American workers made less than $50,000 last year.
That first number is truly staggering.  The federal poverty level for a family of five is $28,410, and yet almost 40 percent of all American workers do not even bring in $20,000 a year.
If you worked a full-time job at $10 an hour all year long with two weeks off, you would make approximately $20,000.  This should tell you something about the quality of the jobs that our economy is producing at this point.
And of course the numbers above are only for those that are actually working.  As I discussed just recently, there are 7.9 million working age Americans that are “officially unemployed” right now and another 94.7 million working age Americans that are considered to be “not in the labor force”.  When you add those two numbers together, you get a grand total of 102.6 million working age Americans that do not have a job right now.
So many people that I know are barely scraping by right now.  Many families have to fight tooth and nail just to make it from month to month, and there are lots of Americans that find themselves sinking deeper and deeper into debt.
If you can believe it, about a quarter of the country actually has a negativenet worth right now.
What that means is that if you have no debt and you also have ten dollars in your pocket that gives you a greater net worth than about 25 percent of the entire country.  The following comes from a recent piece by Simon Black
Credit Suisse estimates that 25% of Americans are in this situation of having a negative net-worth.
“If you’ve no debts and have $10 in your pocket you have more wealth than 25% of Americans. More than 25% of Americans have collectively that is.”
The thing is– not only did the government create the incentives, but they set the standard.
With a net worth of negative $60 trillion, US citizens are just following dutifully in the government’s footsteps.
As a nation we are flat broke and most of us are living paycheck to paycheck.  It has been estimated that it takes approximately $50,000 a year to support a middle class lifestyle for a family of four in the U.S. today, and so the fact that 71 percent of all workers make less than that amount shows how difficult it is for families that try to get by with just a single breadwinner.
Needless to say, a tremendous squeeze has been put on the middle class.  In many families, both the husband and the wife are working as hard as they can, but it is still not enough.  With each passing day, more Americans are losing their spots in the middle class and this has pushed government dependence to an all-time high.  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 49 percent of all Americans now live in a home that receives money from the government each month.
Sadly, the trends that are destroying the middle class in America just continue to accelerate.
With a huge assist from the Republican leadership in Congress, Barack Obama recently completed negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  Also known as Obamatrade, this insidious new treaty is going to cover nations that collectively account for 40 percent of global GDP.  Just like NAFTA, this treaty will result in the loss of thousands of businesses and millions of good paying American jobs.  Let us hope and pray that Congress somehow votes it down.
Another thing that is working against the middle class is the fact that technology is increasingly taking over our jobs.  With each passing year, it becomes cheaper and more efficient to have computers, robots and machines do things that humans once did.
Eventually, there will be very few things that humans will be able to do more cheaply and more efficiently than computers, robots and machines.  How will most of us make a living when that happens?
The robopocalypse for workers may be inevitable. In this vision of the future, super-smart machines will best humans in pretty much every task. A few of us will own the machines, a few will work a bit… while the rest will live off a government-provided income…the most common job in most U.S. states probably will no longer be truck driver.
For decades, we have been training our young people to have the goal of “getting a job” once they get out into the real world.  But in America today there are not nearly enough good jobs to go around, and this crisis is only going to accelerate as we move into the future.
I do not believe that it is wise to pin your future on a corporation that could replace you with a foreign worker or a machine the moment that it becomes expedient to do so.  We need to start thinking differently, because the paradigms that worked in the past are fundamentally breaking down.
So what advice would you give to a young adult today that is looking toward the future?

Germany’s Refugee Crisis Grim Report: ‘We’re Under Water’

“O Lord, my strength and my stronghold, And my refuge in the day of distress, To You the nations will come From the ends of the earth and say, “Our fathers have inherited nothing but falsehood, Futility and things of no profit.” (Jeremiah 16:19)
Der Spiegel on Sunday published a sober and alarming report on the refugee situation in Germany, which shows Germany is in the midst of a spiraling crisis, with a reported 409,000 new arrivals between Sept. 5 and Oct. 15 this year, more than ever before in a comparable time period. Entire cities and towns in Germany have been completely transformed with ever increasing hordes camping on their main streets. In Hesepe, a village of 2,500 in the state of Lower Saxony, Kathrin and Ralf Meyer have told Spiegel reporters, “It’s gotten a bit too much for us, too much noise, too many refugees, too much garbage.” The Meyers are moving out, sick of asylum-seekers sitting on their garden wall or rummaging through their garbage cans. “You do feel sorry for them,” says Ralf, “but there are just too many of them here now.”

Six weeks after Chancellor Angela Merkel’s historic decision to open Germany’s borders, Germany lacks a plan to make Merkel’s generous gesture work without causing the country to collapse under the weight of too many needy outsiders. There aren’t enough buildings that are up to code, there aren’t enough personnel with the needed backgrounds, because too few students have pursued degrees in the needed specialties. Last week, Interior Minister Thomas de Maizière confided in his Luxembourg counterpart, telling him that Merkel did not have a plan, only “cold feet.”
Tens of thousands of asylum-seekers haven’t been registered, so no one knows how many of them have entered the country. And they don’t wish to go where they’re told, to be evenly distributed around the country, they want to go to where they have relatives and friends. Last week, according to Spiegel, a train from Bavaria carrying 450 refugees arrived in the town of Uelzen in Lower Saxony, and some 300 of them refused to get on the buses that were waiting to take them to their new homes. Now soldiers are stationed in Uelzen, to gently but firmly guide refugees to the buses.
The weather is a major enemy these days. Temperatures are falling, the first frosts appear, snow has been spotted, and before you know it Germany will be crowded with homeless crowds in its frozen streets, huddled around fire barrels and dying of hunger and disease. Some mayors have cancelled the contracts of tenants in publicly owned apartments in order to house refugees—creating German homelessness to prevent refugee suffering. That point has not escaped the attention of anti-refugee Germans. Henriette Reker, a candidate for senior mayor of the city of Cologne, was stabbed in the neck in an open air market, and the arrested suspect told police he was acting out of ethnic intolerance. He disapproved of the candidate’s liberal policies on refugees.
Many conservative lawmakers would like to see the reintroduction of border controls and want most asylum seekers to be blocked at the border. They want the state to demonstrate that it hasn’t completely lost control of who gets to enter. Merkel believes that this is the wrong approach. Her party, the CDU, has presented itself solidly behind the chancellor. But criticism is growing. Merkel knows that the pressure will continue to mount. Within her own party, the Christian Democrats, many consider it a given that she will have to change her policy.
According to Spiegel, Merkel’s last hope is Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whom the chancellor is visiting in Ankara this weekend, hoping to buy him off with huge sums of money, so he would keep the sea of humanity on his shores.

BRITAIN was tonight warned to prepare for a record cold winter

Image result for BRITAIN was tonight warned to prepare for a record cold winter

Climate experts are now all but certain this year will see the strongest ever El Nino develop in waters around the Equator with serious consequences for the UK.

When the phenomenon was announced earlier this year forecasters hoped it would fizzle out before winter.

But temperatures in the Pacific Ocean have been rising steadily and the most powerful El Nino on record is expected to be confirmed within days.

The knock-on effects around the globe, which include unusually cold winters in Britain, could be catastrophic.

The last El Nino, six years ago, saw the UK crippled by the worst winter for decades with widespread harsh frosts, sub-zero temperatures and heavy snow setting in from early December and lasting until March.

This year could top that killer winter which saw airports closed for days and led to the deaths of more than 25,000 people.

Warnings have been issued across the southern United States where the strength of El Nino is already causing worrying shifts in the jet stream.

This year's El Nino is set to affect weather patterns all over the worldClimate experts say the region is set for below average temperatures and above average precipitation which is likely to fall as snow.

It is a frightening reminder back to the winter of 2009 which saw both the US and Great Britain crippled by heavy snow and weeks of sub-zero temperatures.

El Nino that year is thought to have played a pivotal role in the Arctic conditions with the current conditions already looking much more powerful.

The El Nino is likely to bring severe weather across the Atlantic to Britain

The oceanographic anomaly is the result of a change in wind direction pulling warm waters away from Asia towards Peru and South America.

UK forecasters are also bracing themselves for the worst with all the ingredients in place for a lengthy and savagely cold and snowy season.

Climate scientists say it is still too early to know the full impact of the coming winter but agree a strong El Nino points towards severe weather.

REUTERSThe El Nino is forecast to bring winter snow to the UK, just like in whiteout of 2009/10

James Madden, forecaster for Exacta Weather, said the winter outlook has worsened thanks to plunging Atlantic sea temperatures.

The Gulf stream, which pulls warm water from the eastern coast of the United States to the United Kingdom, has been rapidly declining, he added.

He said: “There will be a real chill at times in terms of temperatures due to below- average sea surface temperatures in the Atlantic and a virtually non-existent Gulf Stream.

“This is of some real significance to us in terms of future weather patterns and this is also likely to result in a much colder than average November with the first significant snow of the year in parts of the north for the UK.

“There will also be some snow to much lower levels of the country at times within this period, and even parts of the south of the UK could see some early snow before we enter December this year.

“December in itself may then follow on with a rather mixed theme of colder and milder interludes before an increase in severity of some exceptional cold and snow in the final part of the month and for prolonged periods throughout January and into February due to prolonged blocking patterns that will refuse to shift.

“The overall situation has also worsened in terms of much colder than average sea surface temperatures (SST) in the North Atlantic.”
