The Economy Is Even Worse Than You Think

  • This is no surprise to people who read the details of economic statistics from official sources like the Bureau of Labor (Lying) Statistics. Politicians will manipulate the data to suit their agendas. This is why these statistics are frequently revised. Remember after the Nov 08 election, the statistics in the prior months were revised to much worse! For independent statistics that are not fudged look to John Williams’: www.shadowstats.com. Mortimer Zuckerman explains :
     
    The average length of unemployment is higher than it’s been since government began tracking the data in 1948
     
    The recent unemployment numbers have undermined confidence that we might be nearing the bottom of the recession. What we can see on the surface is disconcerting enough, but the inside numbers are just as bad.
     
    The Bureau of Labor Statistics preliminary estimate for job losses for June is 467,000, which means 7.2 million people have lost their jobs since the start of the recession. The cumulative job losses over the last six months have been greater than for any other half year period since World War II, including the military demobilization after the war. The job losses are also now equal to the net job gains over the previous nine years, making this the only recession since the Great Depression to wipe out all job growth from the previous expansion.
     
    Here are 10 reasons we are in even more trouble than the 9.5% unemployment rate indicates:
     
    – June’s total assumed 185,000 people at work who probably were not. The government could not identify them; it made an assumption about trends. But many of the mythical jobs are in industries that have absolutely no job creation, e.g., finance. When the official numbers are adjusted over the next several months, June will look worse.
     
    – More companies are asking employees to take unpaid leave. These people don’t count on the unemployment roll.
     
    – No fewer than 1.4 million people wanted or were available for work in the last 12 months but were not counted. Why? Because they hadn’t searched for work in the four weeks preceding the survey.
     
    – The number of workers taking part-time jobs due to the slack economy, a kind of stealth underemployment, has doubled in this recession to about nine million, or 5.8% of the work force. Add those whose hours have been cut to those who cannot find a full-time job and the total unemployed rises to 16.5%, putting the number of involuntarily idle in the range of 25 million.
     
    – The average work week for rank-and-file employees in the private sector, roughly 80% of the work force, slipped to 33 hours. That’s 48 minutes a week less than before the recession began, the lowest level since the government began tracking such data 45 years ago. Full-time workers are being downgraded to part time as businesses slash labor costs to remain above water, and factories are operating at only 65% of capacity. If Americans were still clocking those extra 48 minutes a week now, the same aggregate amount of work would get done with 3.3 million fewer employees, which means that if it were not for the shorter work week the jobless rate would be 11.7%, not 9.5% (which far exceeds the 8% rate projected by the Obama administration).
     
    – The average length of official unemployment increased to 24.5 weeks, the longest since government began tracking this data in 1948. The number of long-term unemployed (i.e., for 27 weeks or more) has now jumped to 4.4 million, an all-time high.
     
    – The average worker saw no wage gains in June, with average compensation running flat at $18.53 an hour.
     
    – The goods producing sector is losing the most jobs — 223,000 in the last report alone.
     
    – The prospects for job creation are equally distressing. The likelihood is that when economic activity picks up, employers will first choose to increase hours for existing workers and bring part-time workers back to full time. Many unemployed workers looking for jobs once the recovery begins will discover that jobs as good as the ones they lost are almost impossible to find because many layoffs have been permanent. Instead of shrinking operations, companies have shut down whole business units or made sweeping structural changes in the way they conduct business. General Motors and Chrysler, closed hundreds of dealerships and reduced brands. Citigroup and Bank of America cut tens of thousands of positions and exited many parts of the world of finance.
     
    Job losses may last well into 2010 to hit an unemployment peak close to 11%. That unemployment rate may be sustained for an extended period.
     
    …..Unemployment has doubled to 9.5% from 4.8% in only 16 months, a rate so fast it may influence future economic behavior and outlook. How could this happen when Washington has thrown trillions of dollars into the pot, including the famous $787 billion in stimulus spending that was supposed to yield $1.50 in growth for every dollar spent? For a start, too much of the money went to transfer payments such as Medicaid, jobless benefits and the like that do nothing for jobs and growth. The spending that creates new jobs is new spending, particularly on infrastructure. It amounts to less than 10% of the stimulus package today.
     
    About 40% of U.S. workers believe the recession will continue for another full year, and their pessimism is justified. As paychecks shrink and disappear, consumers are more hesitant to spend and won’t lead the economy out of the doldrums quickly enough.
      …. 
    Another $150 billion, which was allocated to state coffers to continue programs like Medicaid, did not add new jobs; hundreds of billions were set aside for tax cuts and for new benefits for the poor and the unemployed, and they did not add new jobs. Now state budgets are drowning in red ink as jobless claims and Medicaid bills climb.
     
    Next year state budgets will have depleted their initial rescue dollars. Absent another rescue plan, they will have no choice but to slash spending, raise taxes, or both. State and local governments, representing about 15% of the economy, are beginning the worst contraction in postwar history amid a deficit of $166 billion for fiscal 2010, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, and a gap of $350 billion in fiscal 2011.
     
    Households overburdened with historic levels of debt will also be saving more. The savings rate has already jumped to almost 7% of after-tax income from 0% in 2007, and it is still going up. Every dollar of saving comes out of consumption. Since consumer spending is the economy’s main driver, we are going to have a weak consumer sector and many businesses simply won’t have the means or the need to hire employees. After the 1990-91 recessions, consumers went out and bought houses, cars and other expensive goods. This time, the combination of a weak job picture and a severe credit crunch means that people won’t be able to get the financing for big expenditures, and those who can borrow will be reluctant to do so. The paycheck has returned as the primary source of spending.

Obama Science Czar’s Plan To Sterilize Population Through Water Supply Already Happening

Daniel 11:37
37 He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.

  • The ‘desire of woman’ : children? Sounds right. There seems to be a hidden move to ‘feminize’ males for the past few decades. The Illuminati is driving their depopulation plan forward aggressively. Paul J Watson reports :
      
    Shocking proposals to mass sterilize the population by artificially medicating municipal water supplies, which were outlined by President Obama’s top science czar in his 1977 book Ecoscience, are already in effect as global sperm counts drop and gender-bending chemicals pollute our rivers and lakes.
     
    As we highlighted on Saturday, alongside John P. Holdren’s advocacy for a global planetary regime to enforce forced abortion, government `seizure of children born out of wedlock, and mandatory bodily implants designed to prevent pregnancy, Obama’s top advisor also called for,”Adding a sterilant to drinking water or staple foods.” Holdren added that the sterilant must meet stiff requirements in that it must only affect humans and not livestock.
     
    “It must be uniformly effective, despite widely varying doses received by individuals, and despite varying degrees of fertility and sensitivity among individuals; it must be free of dangerous or unpleasant side effects; and it must have no effect on members of the opposite sex, children, old people, pets, or livestock,” wrote Holdren with co-authors Paul Ehrlich and Anne Ehrlich.
     
    Holdren notes that the proposal to forcibly mass sterilize the public against their will “seems to horrify people” and yet it doesn’t seem to bother him too much, amidst the myriad of other totalitarian Dr. Strangelove style ideas that are put forward in the book as a way to carry out an aggressive agenda of population reduction.
     
    Global sperm counts have dropped by a third since 1989 and by half in the past 50 years. The rate of decline is only accelerating as more and more couples find it harder to have children.
    In studies of white European men, the rate of decline is as much as 50 per cent in the last 30 years. In Italy, this equates to a native population reduction of 22 per cent by 2050. Population reduction is already occurring amongst native residents in many areas of Europe and America.
     
    Everything from cellphone signals, to eating soy products, to female hormones entering the water supply from HRT products has been blamed. There’s no doubt that environmental pollution from industry and pharmaceutical products has contributed, but new research has uncovered that additional chemicals known as Antiandrogens are now finding their way into the water supply.
     
    “The University of Exeter is now working with chemists at the University of Sussex to establish exactly what the chemicals in question are, and hence to understand how they are being released into waste water,”
    states the study.
     
    Antiandrogens are capable of preventing or inhibiting the biologic effects of androgens, male sex hormones, on normally responsive tissues in the body. Antiandrogens are given to transsexual men who want to become women and they are also given to sex offenders released from prison to reduce their sexual libido. These substances have the effect of counteracting masculinisation and effectively diminishing normal male biological characteristics associated with the release of testosterone.
     
    Antiandrogens used in pesticides sprayed on our food have also been identified as “endocrine disruptors” that have been “demonstrated to induce demasculinization in rats.”
      
    These newly discovered poisons, combined with contraceptive pills and HRT have literally had the effect of gender-bending no less than a third of male fish in all British rivers, which causes them to produce eggs and make them infertile. Dozens of species besides fish, such as polar bears, bald eagles, otters and whales have also been affected and the problem is global.
     
    In waterways that are located close to sewage treatment facilities, a staggering 80 per cent of male fish were found to have female characteristics as a result of such chemicals.
     
    It is also feared that bird populations could be devastated in the long run from chemicals being passed from infected fish when birds eat the fish. Veteran fishermen are already noticing a severe decline in fish populations across the country.
     
    This is what comes out of our taps, not to even mention the scores of other dangerous compounds and chemicals that are in our water supply, we are drinking a poison that makes animals and fish infertile. Human sperm counts are also dropping on a consistent basis and the connection is clear – chemicals that make us infertile are already in the water supply, just as Holdren and other top eugenicists called for more than 30 years ago.
     
    “There is certainly the potential for it to have an effect in humans – and possibly a marked effect,” said Professor Charles Tyler of Exeter University, one of the country’s leading authorities on the effects of oestrogen.
      …..
    The population of the world is under sustained biological assault and the vast majority of people have no idea that it is happening. This goes above and beyond any debate about whether there are too many people on the planet. This shatters any acceptable notion of human rights as outlined in the Nuremberg code, which clearly states that, “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential,” in any form of human experimentation, and yet the population is being mass medicated and mass sterilized not only against its will but completely in the dark.
      
    We are being biologically attacked by hardcore totalitarian eugenicists hell-bent on forcibly reducing the global population who have
    publicly announced their plans for an 80 per cent plus population reduction program. The legacy of these megalomaniacs is born out of class racism, fascist thinking and a blood lust to dominate and enslave the planet – they couldn’t give a shit about the environment, this is all about eliminating the “useless eaters,” as they see us.
     
    They have openly outlined their plans to commit mass genocide and we are now seeing the first wave of that attack via the poisons in our water that are making us infertile.

Dr. Russell Blaylock: Vaccine May Be More Dangerous Than Swine Flu

  • What the good doctor say is true. Don’t be taken for a ride. So what if you catch this mild 3-4 days flu. It is even weaker than seasonal flu. We need to counter all the MSM propaganda BS that we should look to vaccines to save us! Dr Blaylock writes :
      
    An outbreak of swine flu occurred in Mexico this spring that eventually affected 4,910 Mexican citizens and resulted in 85 deaths. By the time it spread to the United States, the virus caused only mild cases of flu-like illness.
     
    Thanks to air travel and the failure of public health officials to control travel from Mexico, the virus spread worldwide. Despite predictions of massive numbers of deaths and the arrival of doomsday, the virus has remained a relatively mild disease, something we know happens each year with flu epidemics.
     
    Worldwide, there have only been 311 deaths out of 70,893 cases of swine flu. In the United States, 27,717 cases have resulted in 127 deaths. Every death is a tragedy, but such a low death rate should not be the basis of a draconian government policy.
     
    It is helpful to recall that the Centers for Disease Control with the collusion of the media, constantly tell us that 36,000 people die from the flu each year, a figure that has been shown to be a lie. In this case, we are talking about 300 plus deaths for the entire world.
     
    This virus continues to be an enigma for virologists. In the April 30, 2009 issue of Nature, a virologist was quoted as saying,“Where the hell it got all these genes from we don’t know.” Extensive analysis of the virus found that it contained the original 1918 H1N1 flu virus, the avian flu virus (bird flu), and two new H3N2 virus genes from Eurasia. Debate continues over the possibility that swine flu is a genetically engineered virus.
     
    Naturally, vaccine manufacturers have been in a competitive battle to produce the first vaccine. The main contenders have been Baxter Pharmaceuticals and Novartis Pharmaceuticals, the latter of which recently acquired the scandal-ridden Chiron vaccine company. Both of these companies have had agreements with the World Health Organization to produce a pandemic vaccine.
     
    The Baxter vaccine, called Celvapan, has had fast track approval. It uses a new vero cell technology, which utilizes cultured cells from the African green monkey. This same animal tissue transmits a number of vaccine-contaminating viruses, including the HIV virus.
     
    The Baxter company has been associated with two deadly scandals. The first event occurred in 2006 when hemophiliac components were contaminated with HIV virus and injected in tens of thousands of people, including thousands of children. Baxter continued to release the HIV contaminated vaccine even after the contamination was known.
     
    The second event occurred recently when it was discovered that Baxter had released a seasonal flu vaccine containing the bird flu virus, which would have produced a real world pandemic, to 18 countries. Fortunately, astute lab workers in the Czech Republic discovered the deadly combination and blew the whistle before a worldwide disaster was unleashed.
     
    Despite these two deadly events, WHO maintains an agreement with Baxter Pharmaceuticals to produce the world’s pandemic vaccine. Novartis, the second contender, also has an agreement with WHO for a pandemic vaccine. Novartis appears to have won the contract, since their vaccine is near completion. What is terrifying is that these pandemic vaccines contain ingredients, called immune adjuvants that a number of studies have shown cause devastating autoimmune disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lupus.
     
    Animal studies using this adjuvant have found them to be deadly. A study using 14 guinea pigs found that when they were injected with the special adjuvant, only one animal survived. A repeat of the study found the same deadly outcome.
     
    So, what is this deadly ingredient? It is called squalene, a type of oil. The Chiron company, maker of the deadly anthrax vaccine, makes an adjuvant called MF-59 which contains two main ingredients of concern—squalene and gp120. A number of studies have shown that squalene can trigger all of the above-mentioned autoimmune diseases when injected.
     
    The MF-59 adjuvant has been used in several vaccines. These vaccines, including tetanus and diphtheria, are the same vaccines frequently associated with adverse reactions.
     
    I reviewed a number of studies on this adjuvant and found something quite interesting. Several studies done on human test subjects found MF-59 to be a very safe immune adjuvant. But when I checked to see who did these studies, I found—to no surprise—that they were done by the Novartis Pharmaceutical Company and Chiron Pharmaceutical Company, which have merged. They were all published in “prestigious” medical journals. Also, to no surprise, a great number of studies done by independent laboratories and research institutions all found a strong link between MF-59 and autoimmune diseases.
     
    Squalene in vaccines has been strongly linked to the Gulf War Syndrome. On August 1991, Anthony Principi, Secretary of Veterans Affairs admitted that soldiers vaccinated with the anthrax vaccine from 1990 to 1991 had an increased risk of 200 percent in developing the deadly disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called Lou Gehrig’s disease. The soldiers also suffered from a number of debilitating and life-shortening diseases, such as polyarteritis nodosa, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus, transverse myelitis (a neurological disorder caused by inflammation of the spinal cord), endocarditis (inflammation of the heart’s inner lining), optic neuritis with blindness and glomerulonephritis (a type of kidney disease).
     
    Because squalene, the main ingredient in MF-59, can induce hyperimmune responses and induce autoimmunity, a real danger exists for prolonged activation of the brain’s immune cells, the microglia. This type of prolonged activation has been strongly associated with such diseases as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS and possibly vaccine-related encephalitis. It has been shown that activation of the systemic immune system, as occurs with vaccination, rapidly activates the brain’s microglia at the same time, and this brain inflammation can persist for long periods.
     
    So, how would the gp120 get into the brain? Studies of other immune adjuvants using careful tracer techniques have shown that they routinely enter the brain following vaccination. What most people do not know, even the doctors who recommend the vaccines, is that most such studies by pharmaceutical companies observe the patients for only one to two weeks following vaccination—these types of reactions may take months or even years to manifest.
     
    It is obvious that the vaccine manufacturers stand to make billions of dollars in profits from this WHO/government-promoted pandemic. Novartis, the maker of the new pandemic vaccine, recently announced that they would not give free vaccines to impoverished nations—everybody pays.
     
    One must keep in mind that once the vaccine is injected, there is little you can do to protect yourself—at least by conventional medicine. It will mean a lifetime of crippling illness and early death.
     
    There are much safer ways to protect oneself from this flu virus, such as higher doses of vitamin D3, selective immune enhancement using supplements, and a good diet.

Our Lives at Risk: Drug Company Greed and Dangerous Vaccines

  • So, now we have news that this A/H1N1 virus is similar to the Spanish flu 1918 virus. I wonder why?? See :
     
    Researchers resurrect deadly ‘Spanish’ flu (2004)
    Security fears as flu virus that killed 50 million is recreated (2005)
     
  • This is a bio-engineered virus! Many people are undoubtedly profiting from this. Dr. Ilya Sandra Perlingieri writes :
     
    With the threat of a supposed influenza “pandemic,” the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a Level 6 [the highest level] alert on June 11. Despite the hype in our corporate-controlled mainstream news, there is yet no real evidence of a pandemic in the United States or worldwide.(2) There are many conflicting numbers; but so far, there have been relative few substantiated deaths actually attributed to the synthetic H1N1 so-called “swine” flu. However, there may be a far more sinister situation planned. What appears from numerous reports is: that this flu is not a natural occurrence, but rather one that has been manufactured/genetically engineered in some (bio-weapons?) laboratory and contains five different strains of flu that would not have come together naturally(3); that this vaccine supposed to protect humans from it is also quite unsafe; and that it may contain the toxic adjuvant squalene.(4) What is happening is that news reports have created a great deal of fear (originating from “official” sources) in the population at large. Engendered fear is a time-tested way to control masses ­most especially when populations are poorly educated. 
     
    Documents, however, do show that the WHO may have been responsible for and involved with illegally sending live vaccines on a passenger train in Switzerland. This put passengers at great risk. The vaccine packing materials exploded during transit on this train, “spraying the passengers with the biological agent.”(5) 
     
    On June 10 it was reported that Jane Burgermeister, an Austrian investigative journalist, filed charges this past April with the FBI in Austria, with much supporting evidence, stating that “Baxter’s A/H1N1 flu pandemic vaccine [Baxter AG is an Austrian subsidiary of Baxter International] and Avir Green Hills Biotechnology of Austria [produced] contaminated bird flu vaccine, alleging this was a deliberate act to cause and profit from a pandemic.”(6) Burgermeister has recently been fired for being a Whistleblower.(7) 
     
    Canadian doctor, Ghislaine Lanctôt (author of “Medical Mafia”) is quoted on July 10 as saying: “I am emerging from a long silence on the subject of vaccination, because I feel that, this time, the stakes involved are huge. The consequences may spread much further than anticipated.” She believes that there is a planned reduction of world population planned through a deliberately invented pandemic, “orchestrated by the WHO, an international organization that serves military, political, and industrial interests.” [quotes from this report at: http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=14312 There’s also a video link at this website.] Dr. Lanctôt’s comments appear to support Jane Burgermeister’s charges filed with the FBI. 
     
    In response to this officially created hysteria, “The White House is proposing vaccination for both seasonal flu and H1N1 flu, although the total number of US [confirmed] fatalities to date from H1N1” is quite small.(8) Federal legislation is already in place and State Emergency Medical Powers Acts now are forcing mandatory drugging or vaccination for every American over the age of three months to be injected with a harmful, untested, and potentially lethal vaccine. Three shots may be required. There are to be no exceptions. 
     
    The drug companies who will be supplying these vaccines are to be indemnified.(9) This means that if a child dies, if anyone dies, or is harmed from any kind of adverse vaccine reaction, the drug companies are not to be held accountable. Does this sound like more collusion between the US government and drug companies? There is a very long and dirty history of both drug companies and the US government using uninformed citizens as experimental laboratory subjects. What nefarious plans are afoot? 
     
    Drug safety studies usually are not conducted on any significant, long-term basis. This results in a completely inadequate time to realistically test for any kind of long-term side effects. What is the trade-off? It is always: profit versus human lives. We lose all the time. Sometimes, drug damage is not seen for years. Here are few examples: Look at the horrific consequences of the drug thalidomide. It was prescribed in 1959, supposedly to help pregnant women sleep better. The women who took it had babies born with horrific congenital abnormalities. 
     
    Then, there was DES [diethylstilbestrol, a synthetic estrogen hormone] used by millions of women. It was marketed for over three decades under more than 2,000 prescription names, supposedly to reduce complications in pregnancy. Clinical trials showed that “women who took DES had twice the number of miscarriages” and higher rates of hypertension. By the early 1970s, it was discovered that the children whose mothers took DES then were exposed to a type of cancer called clear cell adenocarcinoma. There is also the risk for developing breast cancer for both DES women and their daughters exposed in utero. 
     
    This means, long-term, that a second generation of women was also exposed to the deadly effects of DES. “Between 1940-1971, it is estimated that between 500,000-2-million women took DES, thinking it was another wonder drug”even though there was research going back to 1931 linking DES with cancer. Doctors continued to prescribe this drug; and “Squibb and Eli Lily continued to promote the drug as one that produced healthier babies.” The FDA did not intercede until 1971­40 years later!” [quote from my book: “The Uterine Crisis” pages 18-19] DES is still being used to fatten cattle and poultry. Is there still a cancer link? 
      
    Vaccine safety studies, too, are done on a short-term basis (several days to several weeks) Part of the 1976 swine flu epidemic also included the dangerous side-effects of the vaccine being promoted. The flu virus originated out of Ft. Dix, New Jersey. The US-mandated program to vaccinate every person was halted after 1,600 people died. Much of what happened regarding this unsafe flu vaccine was covered up. 
     
    There also was the earlier polio epidemic of the early 1950s. The polio virus attacked the central nervous system; and thousands of children died or were seriously crippled. The vaccine, developed by Dr. Jonas Salk, was supposed to be a miracle. 
     
    There was a rush to have the polio vaccine mass produced; and, in 1955, the US government mandated a polio vaccine program. Millions of children lined up in schools across the country to get a polio shot. It was supposed to protect them. [Another mass flu vaccination plan is now in the works for children this fall via school programs.] Did anyone question the vaccine’s safety then? However, by the 1960s, some researchers had discovered “that the polio vaccine distributed to certain states was infected with another virus called ‘Simian Virus 40 [SV40].'” 
     
    At the time, it was unknown that the SV40 caused brain and lung cancers.(10) This SV40 is a monkey virus not usually found in humans. Rhesus monkeys were used during the polio vaccine laboratory tests. The polio vaccine was grown on their kidneys, collected, killed, and then given to people. Humans who were given this dose of polio vaccine were then supposed to develop antibodies to protect them from getting polio. 
     
    Fast forward: 40 years. Some of this polio vaccine was tainted with SV40. It is only now that the long-term effects of this contaminated polio vaccine and its link with cancers are being researched. But most of this information remains in medical journals, and is not getting out to the general public. This is another historical reminder of the extreme importance of long-term safety trials on drugs and vaccines. 
     
    Fuentes notes that by “1963, the estimated number of tainted polio vaccinations was estimated of upwards of 98-million” and, further that “SV40 has appeared in 61 percent of all new cancer patients ­patients too young to have received the contaminated polio vaccineadministered 40 years ago.”(11) Fragments of SV40 have been isolated and found in human bone cancers at Loyola University; and in rhesus monkeys at the Institute of Histology and General Embryology, University of Ferrara [Italy]. 
     
    Does that mean that SV40 has now been transmitted to new generations? [The study of epigenetics deals with the transmission of diseases and environmental toxins from one generation to the next.] How many Americans have cancer today, or have died from cancer, possibly linked with the contaminated polio vaccine? Forty years later, there is still much research to be done. How much of any of this does the general public know? 
     
    We have never learned those vital lessons, because now we have a new generation of multi-national drug companies that are gearing up; and they are determined to make enormous profits ­again, at our expense. Are we going to continue to be their experimental laboratory rats? 
     
    These are only a few instances of a total lack of any kind of urgently needed precaution. They are vast reminders that in the huge race to give Big Pharmaceutical companies enormous and indemnified profits, we are all expendable. Profits are all that count. The inherent dangers in this new synthetic influenza combined with unsafe vaccines has the potential to cause enormous havoc ­here in the US and worldwide. Where is any Precautionary Principle? 
     
    Lest we forget, there are extremely serious issues in all this: (1) The drug companies stand to make millions, if not billions of dollars for unproven, untested, and FORCED medication on the entire [reduced?] population. (2) There will be no recourse for any American citizen who dies or is disabled by being forced to take these dangerous drugs. The potential for mass deaths cannot be discounted. (3) Non-compliance by any American can result in persons being abducted [by whom? US military? local police? or mercenary troops?] from their homes and sent to undisclosed detention center/FEMA camps. Where are these places located? “Camps” are where we send our children during the summertime to play. The term “camp” is a euphemism for prisons or possibly US death camps. This is what the United States did to innocent Japanese Americans during World War II. They were seized and imprisoned illegally for years! Will history is about to repeat itself? ­ only this time with the potential of even far more deadly consequences. 
     
    Forcing us to be vaccinated also means that every American becomes an uninformed test subject and a “slave” to planned and illegal laws. Our [now shredded] US Constitution prohibits slavery and indentured servitude. This is the deliberate destruction of the last remaining of our presumed liberties. Our Constitution is no longer upheld by those officials supposedly elected to do precisely that. As Professor John Kozy just wrote a few days ago: “A political-economic oligarchy has taken over the United States of America.”(12) Over many years, this has been done surreptitiously. POCLAD has been documenting this for years.(13) Now, there is no pretense. Yet, the overwhelming majority of Americans remain uninformed and very poorly educated about the enormous scale of what is happening. 
     
    What has not been mentioned in any recent reports is: what will happen to those whose immune systems are already compromised? What about millions of people with multiple illnesses? What about infants with immature immune systems? What about people already hospitalized? It is plausible that three injections of untested drugs can/will kill them? What about millions of Americans who are immuno-compromised? What about those already on prescription drugs, what about dangerous and unknown drug interactions? This then is a massive act of premeditated genocide. It is what the CDC euphemistically calls “A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF HUMAN WASTAGE.”(14) Do we want what F. William Engdahl calls the “militarization of public health”?(15) 
     
    The United States is a failed country, as many writers, including Paul Craig Roberts, Professor Kozy, and others continue to point out. There is nothing but stealth and deceit that pervade the beltway. The depths of depravity and greed that now engulf this country are at a scale that is far too reminiscent of the medical experiments perpetrated on millions of people by Nazi Germany. 
     
    Are we going to be silent and complicit in our own destruction? These vaccines are the modern day equivalent of the Greek Trojan Horse: that will come into our own homes/communities illegally and wreck complete havoc! Put bluntly: the government’s forced influenza vaccines will be the 21st century’s harbingers of death and destruction, as was the ancient Trojan Horse. This is the plan. Can we actually come to grips with this before there is nothing left? Do we care about our own safety? Our children’s? Our parents? Our friends? Do we want to make our own medical decisions? Further, the FDA is already threatening to “seize all natural products that dare to mention H1N1 swine flu.”(16) 
     
    We are already under daily and deadly assault with the poisons from Chemtrail aerosols, more than 60 undisclosed and Clandestine Weather Modification Programs, Brown Cloud pollution [now monitored by NASA], and toxic pollution of more than 100,000 other untested chemicals. Breathing the air is now unhealthy and unsafe. Environmental laws have been deliberately dismantled/gutted over the past nine years. The vast scope of the interaction of all these poisonous drugs/chemicals/carcinogens/hormone-disruptors is not being tested (because it means billions of different toxic combinationsa mathematical impossibility). What is known, however, is that we now have epidemics of cancers, genetic malformations in all species, and the medical list of multiple illnesses from which millions are suffering goes on and on. The damage to our immune systems is enormous. We are already gravely immuno-supressed. 
     
    As I have written in my last book, “The Uterine Crisis,” a corporation’s bottom line is profit –at any and all expense. This modus operandi is now completely out of control. Our well being and safety are not part of any corporate ethos. We are all expendable for corporate profits, and the evidence for this has been piling up for a century. This is where the United States of America is right now: being run into the ground and destroyed by corporations, the Federal Reserve (a private and very wealthy group of banksters), and other US officials. Profits for a very small group are going into a secret pool of untold trillions of our stolen taxpayer dollars, while there is no accountability. The ensuing demise of our financial base is evident everywhere. Except for the wealthy insiders. 
     
    Finally, there is absolutely no Precautionary Principle in place. There is tremendous suspicion of potential harm! There is significant scientific uncertainty! We are facing the reality that the public/common good is under siege. Real health concerns are irrelevant. 
     
    Sanity is out the proverbial window. Ethics are gone. Any semblance of rational behavior is nowhere to be seen. The “pandemic” we have is actually one of greed on an epic scale with the collusion of people supposedly “entrusted” with our welfare. Congress is complicit. However, given the Federal Reserve’s criminal grand theft of our taxpayer dollars and a lack of any accountability in their unconscionable destruction of our economy, it is all business as usual by these US “public” officials.  
       ….
    We must protect our own safety, because there is no official who will help any of us. This is the tragic reality. Nevertheless, it is in our hands. We live in perilous times. We can either stand together for justice, safety, and our Constitutional rights, or we can cower and be in denial. We do have a choice. With little of our freedom left, we can and must STOP THIS IMMANENT THREAT TO ALL OF US! 
     
    “These doctor’s conflicting corporate, scientific, and financial interests evidence criminal malfeasance. Killing dozens of people for publicity and duplicity in public health, to increase marketability of their new vaccine is best described as serial homicide to advanced genocide ­the mass killing for profit.” Dr. Len Horowitz. 
     
    and: 
     
    almost 100 million Americans were exposed (to SV40) through government sponsored programs, but for over 30 years, there has been virtually no government effort to see if anyone’s been harmed by the exposure. The government will not fund science that makes it look culpable.” 
     
    Dr. Howard Urnovitz, microbiologist. Quoted in the Boston Globe. (18)

H1N1 Swine Flu Appears Similar to 1918 Pandemic Virus; WHO Recommends Vaccines Use Live (Attenuated) Influenza

  • This fear mongering to drive people to vaccines is accelerating. Country after country is announcing programs for vaccination. The latest being Australia, which has ordered 21 million courses of vaccines. This is practically for their entire population. Why spend so much money on untested vaccines for the A/H1N1 virus that is so much milder than seasonal flu? Why spend the money on vaccines when the virus is still mutating? Can you trust Big Pharma? Mike Adams writes :
     
    Two shocking bits of news about the H1N1 swine flu virus emerged this week. The first is that the widely-circulating swine flu virus may be a lot more dangerous than people have so far been told: It appears to resemble the 1918 pandemic virus in the fact that it is capable of embedding itself deep in lung tissue and causing deadly infections. This is very different from the more common “seasonal flu” which does not replicate in the lungs.
     
    Explaining this concept, lead researcher Yoshihiro Kawaoka of the University of Wisconsin wrote in the journal Nature: “When we conducted the experiments in ferrets and monkeys, the seasonal virus did not replicate in the lungs… The
    H1N1 virus replicates significantly better in the lungs.”
     
    As Reuters reports, Kawaoka also added, “There is a misunderstanding about this virus… There is clear evidence the virus is different than seasonal
    influenza.”
     
    The 1918 influenza
    pandemic killed at least 40 million people globally (and probably many more). Also remember: That was a time when obesity was extremely rare. Today, obesity is alarmingly common among first-world nations, and obesity is now suspected of making a person highly susceptible to swine flu fatalities (http://www.naturalnews.com/026602_p…).
      
    World Health Organization gets aggressive with vaccination recommendations
    Meanwhile, the World Health Organization — always a trusty friend of
    Big Pharma — has announced that swine flu is “unstoppable” and is now directing all the nations of the world to vaccinate their citizens against the H1N1 influenza strain. This is essentially an order for global mandatory vaccinations.
     
    And yet, at the same time
    the WHO is recommending mass global vaccinations against the swine flu, it also states on its own website that such vaccineshave never been proven safe. In its own words (http://www.who.int/csr/disease/swin…):
     
    [Emphasis added] “Since new technologies are involved in the production of some pandemic vaccines, which have not yet been extensively evaluated for their safetyin certain population groups, it is very important to implement post-marketing surveillance of the highest possible quality. In addition, rapid sharing of the results of immunogenicity and post-marketing safety and effectiveness studies among the international community will be essential for allowing countries to make necessary adjustments to their vaccination policies.”
     
    In other words: Use the people as guinea pigs and see who dies first!
     
    It’s not difficult to decode the WHO’s language in this case. The vaccines aren’t safe, so they’re recommending that people given the vaccines be watched closely to see what happens (who dies).
     
    And just to make sure more people die, the WHO is also recommending such vaccines use “live attenuated influenza.”
    As stated on the WHO’s website:
     
    “In view of the anticipated limited vaccine availability at global level and the potential need to protect against “drifted” strains of virus, SAGE recommended that promoting production and use of vaccines such as those that are formulated with oil-in-water adjuvants and live attenuated influenza vaccines was important.”
     
    Inject yourself with live attenuated influenza!
    What, exactly, is “live attenuated influenza?” It means live viruses that have been weakened, but may still pose a danger to human
    health.Big Pharma, of course, is more than happy to comply with this order… they’re getting paid billions to make the live influenza vaccines, after all. Notably, Baxter Pharmaceuticals has already been caught inserting live avian flu viruses in vaccine materials, and other drug companies are only too happy to follow suit. ()
     
    ButThere are numerous theories on that. I don’t claim to know the right answer, but here are some of the theories being talked about by people in the know (people who aren’t fooled by Big Government / Big Pharma propaganda):
     
    The population control theory: The swine flu was engineered in a lab, then released in Mexico City precisely to cause a public reaction where people and lawmakers would demand global vaccinations. Those vaccines, in turn, would be intentionally laced with live virus samples designed to kill a large number of people and reduce the global population. All the deaths, of course, could be blamed on the virus; and the drug companies would get rich in the process!
     
    The Big Pharma profit theory: Swine
    The chemtrail / vaccine binary poison theory: Chemtrails have exposed the populations in major world cities to the first half of a binary poison. The mandatory swine flu vaccines will complete the binary recipe, poisoning people with another seemingly innocent cocktail of
    chemicals that just happen to combine with the chemtrail poisons and result in widespread death.
     
    The do-gooder theory: [This is a favorite theory of doctors, drug company reps and public health authorities.] All those conspiracy theories are bunk. These vaccines are being forced onto you for your own good by an industry that cares about people and only has your best interests in mind. Profits and power have nothing to do with it. Your government is trying to protect you, didn’t you know?
      
    Walking virus incubators
    Ninety-nine percent of the U.S. population believes the do-gooder theory, and they will gladly allow themselves to be injected with anything the government recommends (especially if people start dropping dead this fall and the population can be scared into lining up for swine flu shots). The upshot of all this is that ninety-nine percent of the people will then be carrying live “attenuated” swine flu genetic materials in their blood, creating the perfect opportunity for further recombining with seasonal flu.
     
    Global mandatory swine flu vaccinations will, in fact, create a population of infected swine flu carriers. Some of them will die in the 48 hours following the injections. Most will manage to survive the shots and go on to become carriers of swine flu genetic material. With their immune systems weakened by vaccine chemicals and processed, nutrient-depleted junk foods, they will serve as walking incubation vessels for the next sweeping strain of influenza.
     
    And no matter what happens, Big Pharma makes money! The more people die, the more power the government is able to grab through vaccine mandates, forced quarantines, declarations of Martial Law and other similar measures. A pandemic is the perfect opportunity to destroy whatever remaining
    freedoms the American people still cling to.
     
    My advice? Be prepared to protect yourself from the coming wave of gunpoint medicine (forced vaccinations). Both your health and your freedoms may soon be at stake.
    http://www.naturalnews.com/025760.html why, you ask, would governments want to inject their populations with live attenuated influenza DNA? And why would the World Health Organization aggressively promote such a measure, especially since the number of swine flu fatalities so far is exceedingly small?flu vaccines are being pushed globally in order to funnel more profits into the hands of the drug companies. And the more people get sick from the “live attenuated viruses” in the vaccines, the more repeat business the drug companies make from sick patients!

The U.S. Dollar Bear Market Trend into 2012

  • The outlook for the USD is definitely bearish. People who still believe in the safe haven value of the USD need to watch out. Larry Edelson writes :
      
    No doubt you’ve heard about last week’s G-8 Meeting in L’Aquila, Italy. And no doubt you’re hearing a lot of sound bites from the G-8 and the media about the U.S. dollar being a very hot topic at the meeting.
     
    To be sure, the dollar is the central topic on most leaders’ minds right now. After all …
      
    – The United States is now the most indebted civilization in the history of the world and ground zero for the financial crisis.
      
    – Foreign investors are growing very tired of the United States government’s national debt, which has now hit $11.5 TRILLION and is growing at the rate of about $3.88 billion a day. That’s $2.7 million per minute, and $44,000 per second!
     
    – And we all see the federal budget deficit exploding higher, now at $1.84 trillion … equal to almost 13 percent of GDP — hocking our children and grandchildren’s lives to an insurmountable mountain of debt that would require more than 80 percent of the world’s surplus savings to finance.
     
    Moreover …
    – We all see the Federal Reserve, the steward of the nation’s dollar, also in hock up to its eyeballs, its balance sheet having ballooned from $860 billion in liabilities in September 2008 to more than $2 trillion today, and likely to rocket even higher as the Fed continues to print money out of thin air like there’s no tomorrow.
     
    Not to mention the unfunded government IOUs coming due for Social Security, Medicare, and Federal pension payments — totaling an estimated $104 TRILLION.
     
    But so far, the media is almost unanimously proclaiming that the dollar will somehow manage to remain the world’s reserve currency.
     
    Even some of the statements leaking out of the G-8 meeting last week confirm that no immediate changes lie on the horizon for the dollar’s reserve status. But how accurate are these reports? Should you believe the media? Should you believe statements coming out of the G-8 meeting that the dollar’s reserve status is intact?
      
    My answers: First, definitely don’t listen to the media. You rarely get the truth from them. Most of the time they simply rehash what they’re being told.
     
    Second, as far as government statements go, well, we all know about them, too. Rarely are they accurate when it comes to making economic forecasts of any kind.
     
    And with a hot-button topic as sensitive and game-changing as the dollar’s reserve status is — do you really think they’re going to come out and tell you their real intentions? Hardly!
     
    So that’s why I think it’s critical that you read between the lines of all the garbage in the media about the G-8 meeting, look past what governments are telling you they’re doing, and instead focus on what’s really going on. It’s also why I strongly believe and implore that
    you start preparing NOW for the imminent death of the dollar.
     
    Amongst my reasons …
     
    A. India has now joined with Russia and China in questioning the dollar. That’s not small talk. It’s an official statement made recently by Suresh Tendulkar, an economic adviser to Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh — urging the government to diversify its $264.6 billion foreign-exchange reserves to hold fewer dollars.
     
    B. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has repeatedly called for the G-20 to start working on a supranational currency. And despite the conciliatory tone he struck with President Obama on many other matters in their recent meeting in Moscow, Medvedev is not likely to back down on the dollar.
     
    Why? Because Putin, who really pulls the strings in Russia, wants the dollar dethroned.
     
    C. China will NEVER officially reveal that they want the dollar replaced. With the largest dollar reserves in the world and the most at stake,
    why would China want to shoot itself in the foot by openly admitting they want the dollar replaced?
     
    Beijing is too smart and too good at hiding its real intentions. So instead of officially acknowledging they want the dollar demoted, Beijing will play along trying to unofficially support the dollar’s reserve status by mostly denying they want a change — ALL THE WHILE PREPARING FOR THE INEVITABLE.
     
    That’s why the Chinese renminbi is now trading, for the first time ever, as a currency in Hong Kong to settle commercial cross-border transactions. And it’s why Beijing has recently arranged the equivalent of almost $100 billion in currency swaps with various Southeast Asian and Latin American countries, setting the foundation for its currency to become a major international player — and ultimately part of the equation of a new world currency.
     
    Even more significant, it’s also why Beijing increased its gold reserves by 76 percent — way back in 2003. Notice I said “way back.” Reason: Beijing officially acknowledged the increase in its gold reserves six years after the fact. Proof of what I just told you above: That Chinese officials never officially acknowledge what they are actually doing until way after it’s done.
     
    More proof the dollar is toast …
     
    D. Overseas central banks and fund managers are now under intense pressure to dump the dollar. The international currency market is more powerful than all the central banks and treasuries of the world, with more than $3 TRILLION trading hands in the currency markets EVERY DAY.
     
    And the recent decline in the dollar — at a time when overseas investors have such huge holdings of dollar-denominated investments — is killing these investors.
     
    Case in point: In April, U.S. bond purchases by foreign central banks plunged 41 percent. Overseas fund managers are also heading for the exits. Japanese pension fund managers, for instance, invested immense sums in U.S. Treasuries. But in the last three months, they’ve suffered nearly 10 percent losses on the dollar, plus 11 percent losses on long-term Treasuries.
     
    The same is happening to Chinese, Korean, Taiwanese, and European fund managers — who are all facing losses of similar magnitude on their dollar-denominated investments.
     
    Lastly, and most importantly …
    E. Major technical and cyclical indicators confirm a massive decline in the dollar lies ahead. Naturally, that does not rule out occasional, and sometimes even strong, short-term rallies in the dollar.
     
    But all of my indicators tell me the long-term bear market in the buck is not only intact, but the descent into the worst of the dollar bear market lies ahead.
     
    Just consider the greenback’s performance: Despite the worst global financial crisis since the Great Depression … Despite a massive world-wide credit contraction that supposedly should have made the remaining dollars in circulation worth dramatically more as investors around the world paid down debts and flocked to the safety of supposedly the world’s strongest currency …
     
    The dollar is worth roughly half of what it was worth in 1986 …
    Worth 37 percent less than its value in 2001 …
    And is a mere 11 percent higher than its all-time record low set in April of last year! That’s like the Dow Industrials rallying from its March low of 6,469 to barely 7,268!
      
    Moreover, the long-term cycle forecast, courtesy of my colleague Richard Mogey at the Foundation for the Study of Cycles, confirms my own cycle work, as you can see in this chart I have for you from the Foundation.

     
    Notice how the dollar’s cyclic forecast points sharply lower, with no end in sight for its bear market until at least 2012. Make no mistake: Despite occasional rallies in the dollar, it is on the verge of its worst decline yet. And by the time the dollar’s bear market comes to a close, it will likely be dethroned and supplanted as the world’s reserve currency.
     
    Don’t get me wrong. I’m not unpatriotic. I’m just facing the truth. Every fiat currency in the history of the planet has failed and been replaced by a new monetary system. The dollar will be no different.

     
    Bottom line:
    Given we are at most only three years away from the dollar disappearing as the world’s reserve currency …
       
    … I consider it absolutely essential that all subscribers make sure they are current with my core gold and other natural resources recommendations. Even if those assets stage a pullback, as they are doing now.
     
    They are what I consider tangible assets that offer the potential for real wealth, by not only helping to protect you from a falling dollar, but also by positioning you to profit handsomely to boot.
